People going into a business have to have a plan. It’s helpful to write it out, even if you’re the only one there to see it and execute it. It’s your bible. Stick to it, unless things happen in the market that cause you to change your plan. I do that myself.

Joan Jett
Intellectually the French are wonderfully open, in a way the British just don’t begin to be. You can question ideas in France, endlessly. In Britain, two things happen when you do that.

Fred Armisen
I think everything happens for a reason. With my game being the way it is, if I did shoot 80 percent, I’d be a harder person to deal with. It just keeps me humble.

That really was telling a story that I can relate to now.’ That’s my hope.
Pegi Young
A lot of military people just take orders, and there is a place for that. But SEALs think for themselves from day one.

Howard E. Wasdin

We’re repeating the same things all the time; there aren’t many new things happening in this life.
Rokia Traore
The Gospel is not merely a communication of things that can be known – it is one that makes things happen and is life-changing. The dark door of time, of the future, has been thrown open. The one who has hope lives differently; the one who hopes has been granted the gift of a new life.

Richard Bach
No matter how bad things get, eventually the sun is going to shine. If you just keep at it, pursuing your goals, eventually good things happen to decent people. For a person who is set on his goals, good things will happen. Everyone deals with adversity, it’s how you bounce back from it.

Maybe 20 years ago, there would be an event every few months or so, maybe once a year.

Richard Cumberland
It’s strange, the lack of emotion, the absence of drama in reality. When things happen in real life, extraordinary things, there’s no music, there’s no dah-dah-daaahhs. There’s no close-ups. No dramatic camera angles. Nothing happens. Nothing stops, the rest of the world goes on.
Kevin Brooks
It’s a huge challenge for us to get the (43) car back to Victory Lane, to get the car in the Chase, to get back to where I would love to see us win the championship, … Is it a reality next year You’ve seen a lot of things happen in the sport and you look at it and ask ‘How’d that happen’

On a series of apparently tiresome, flat sittings seeming to lead nowhere – one day something happens, the touches seem to ‘take’, the deaf canvas listens, your words flow and you have done something.
Walter Sickert
The same things happen to quite an extent around the globe. I mean, the European banks were doing what the American banks were.
Warren Buffett
Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never even have imagined.

Deepak Chopra
Jerry Kilgore offers denial and delusion, … Mr. Kaine Delusion and deceit. That means nothing happens.

Karl Malone
In terms of writing, I think something happens to you, and you think, “Oh I’m going to write about that. That’s an emotional event.” But obviously, if you keep going, and it’s something you do with regularity, you’ve got to find other ways to write.

Brett Gelman
Everything happens for a reason and that reason is there to assist me.

David Berg
If you want to make something happen that hasn’t happened before , you’ve got to allow yourself to make a lot of mistakes.
To know that nothing happens in God’s world apart from God’s will may frighten the godless, but it stabilizes the saints.
J. I. Packer

Jordyn Woods
Its a war zone. Terrible things happen.
Eason Jordan
I’m inspired by other people’s creativity, just seeing things happen and wondering where they come from. That gets my mind going. Even if it’s just wanting to know how something works.
Wiz Khalifa
I had been acting since I was seven years old, but I had a combination of things happen at about the same time. ‘Austin Powers’ came out on DVD, I got a series regular gig on ‘Buffy’ and ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’ came out.

In all sports, people get competitive; things happen that shouldn’t happen.
Gary Lineker
It was really fun to start writing movies because you could actually take characters whose voice you enjoy writing in and have actual things happen to them for more than five minutes. It was really fun to thread it together.
Paula Pell
Every time I see you with sunbae, I always feel unhappy. This time the same thing happened. Why is it not me but another woman? This is not the first, but the second time. I’m always like this. Just like a fool.
Kim A-joong
Yes, exercise is the catalyst. That’s what makes everything happen: your digestion, your elimination, your sex life, your skin, hair, everything about you depends on circulation. And how do you increase circulation?
Jack LaLanne
If we seek first the Kingdom of God and live as we should, all the rest of life seems to fall into place and wonderful things happen.

If you don’t make things happen then things will happen to you.

Michael Sam
Things happen to you they happen. They dont ask first. They dont require your permission.
Cormac McCarthy
I like to think in camera, but at the last minute the most important thing is that there is something happening between the actors. But good actors can have a lot of scenes going around them but sometimes it sort of helps the performance because it takes their mind off of who they are supposed to be.
Audrey Tautou
Dramaturgically, you always hear that you want to see things in the moment, you want to see things happen, you don’t want to talk about things, but with “Friends,” it was more fun when they talked about it.

Victoria Gray Adams
When America doesn’t act, bad things happen
Dennis Prager
I have no regrets. I find everything happens for a reason and the reason why maybe this is happening is I won’t take BS from anyone. And I think it’s making me stand out on my own and be very independent and fight for what I believe in.
Britney Spears
To be successful, you have to be out there, you have to hit the ground running, and if you have a good team around you and more than a fair share of luck, you might make something happen. But you certainly can’t guarantee it just by following someone else’s formula.
Richard Branson

Iyanla Vanzant
See, bad things happen to me on field trips. Like at my fifth-grade school, when we went to the Saratoga battlefield, I had this accident with a Revolutionary War cannon. I wasn’t aiming for the school bus, but of course I got expelled anyway. – Percy Jackson
Rick Riordan

You have a very powerful mind that can make anything happen as long as you keep yourself centered.

Sally Field
People sometimes say that the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually, it’s the way things happen to you in life that’s unreal. The movies make emotions look strong and real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it’s like you’re watching television — you don’t feel anything.
Andy Warhol
When you are going through something like compaign run nothing happens without Allah’s permission. So a lot of the times you just have to surrender to his will and learning how to surrender was a major thing for me, getting me out of the way, surrendering to the will of God.
Kwame Kilpatrick
Things happen which would not happen without prayer. Let us not forget that.
Elisabeth Elliot
The linchpin is an individual who can walk into chaos and create order, someone who can invent, connect, create, and make things happen. Every worthwhile institution has indispensable people who make differences like these.
And what? What’s the other choice? To passively let things happen and then say: “Tut-tut, what at botch that was”? Don’t we all manipulate people? Even if we openly ask them to make a choice, don’t we try to frame it so they’ll chose as we think they should?
Orson Scott Card
Think of the fierce energy concentrated in an acorn! You bury it in the ground, and it explodes into an oak! Bury a sheep, and nothing happens but decay.

Herman Cain
Science can’t tell you why anything happens.
Michael Crichton
All I cared about was the music, like hearing Townes [ Van Zandt] talking about “For the sake of the song”; it’s all that mattered. In spite of me a couple of things happened, mainly the Eagles and Seven Bridges Road. That certainly helped me survive. Joan Baez, Rita Coolidge, and Ian Matthews did it.
Steve Young
Instincts are learned on the football field through experience. It’s vital in sports because things happen so rapidly that you have to rely on your instincts at times to make quick decisions.

Good can still exist when bad things happen, just as evil persists when good things happen.” – Carter to Georgina

Positive things happen to positive people.
Sarah Beeny
For the last five, 10 years, you’re seeing the best things happen on television.

Frank Bruno
When the spirit of people is strong focused and vibrant, wonderful things happen.
Harrison Owen
Have faith that when bad things happen to you, I belief in an after life, it is better to suffer here on Earth than what awaits you. That is why I pray for pain, and I get it. I do.
Peter Steele
I think it’s the sentence-to-sentence pleasures, the little surprises of a surprising style of an acute style, and also the way things happen one after the other, that makes a book interesting to read page to page
John Updike
The more he became truly wise, the more he distrusted everything he knew.

Becca Fitzpatrick
When you affirm big, believe big and pray big, big things happen.
Norman Vincent Peale
So many silly things happen with a baby around. We laugh more than we expected.
Anoushka Shankar

Alyssa Milano
Surprising and interesting things happen to those who keep their eyes and their minds open and alert!
John Templeton
There are many people that struggle and struggle and have all the talent in the world, but for some reason they are not successful. You never know why those things happen.
Bryan White
Things happen too quickly, crisis follows crisis, the soil of our minds is perpetually disturbed. Each of us, to relieve his feelings, broadcasts his own running commentary on the preposterous and bewildering events of the hour: and this, nowadays, is what passes for conversation.
Jan Struther
My little self-analysis is that consumer technology is the closest thing we have to magic. You push a button and something happens at your command. The things that get me fired up the most have always been the things that seem the most magical.
David Pogue
When I write an email where I outlined a whole scene, it just came out of my unconscious, it comes from a deeper place. The same thing happens when the actors go, take after take, and just get lost in it. When you’re in a house, you don’t think about being in the house; you’re just there.
David O. Russell
If I could go back and talk to the me who was just starting to do comedy, I would have told myself to relax and not worry about things happening right away. That’s a mistake a lot of people make – they think a year is a long time and it’s really not.
Christian Finnegan
Everything happens for a reason, everything is part of a puzzle that, even at the time, if we don’t understand the bigger picture, everything has significant role in what’s to come in the future.
Jon Connor
You’ve got to be hungry – for ideas, to make things happen and to see your vision made into reality
Anita Roddick
I believe in fate and I believe that things happen for a reason, but I don’t think that there’s a high power, necessarily. I believe in karma very much though.
Amy Winehouse
I think many people are terribly afraid of being demoted by the Darwinian scheme from the role of authors and creators in their own right into being just places where things happen in the universe.
Daniel Dennett
When, who, and what things happen to becomes meaningful, then what happens starts to matter, and play can evoke strong emotions, fierce and ongoing urges to succeed, and a desire to leave a mark, drive meaningful change, or build lasting institutions.
Ed Greenwood
Now, I’ve never flown in space; but the folks who have say that on landing day, you know, you’ve just spent maybe a week and a half, sometimes two weeks in orbit and you’re used to the things happening slowly in space.
Duane G. Carey
Good films are not made by accident, nor is good photography. You can have good things happen, on occasion, by accident that can be applied at that moment in a film, but your craft isn’t structured around such things, except in beer commercials.
Gordon Willis
Make something happen today, before you go home, before the end of the week. Launch that idea, post that post, run that ad, call that customer. Go the edge, that edge you’ve been holding back from… and do it today. Without waiting for the committee or your boss or the market. Just go.
Seth Godin
Nothing is going to be handed to you — you have to make things happen.
Florence Griffith Joyner
A lot of things happened when I left there, and to be fair they treated me really bad, and now I have to play against them so I don’t have any feelings for them at all.
Frank Lampard
So many things happen for every event, and if you try to manipulate it, it means you are struggling against the whole universe, and that’s just silly.
Deepak Chopra
Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
Kurt Vonnegut
I think if you’re artistic in any way, you’re probably born with it. I guess it’s a talent that can be learned here and there, but I think the instinct to tell a story or to create something happens maybe in the womb.
Gabriel Macht
If you haven’t noticed the Canadians, when they need a big operation, when something happens, they come into the United States in many cases because their system is so slow. It’s catastrophic in certain ways.
Donald Trump
Going back into the history of a word, very often into Latin, we come back pretty commonly to pictures or models of how things happen or are done.
J. L. Austin
It’s a funny thing that when things happen in an actor’s life, at some point it’s just a performance, at another, it’s a part of your life.
Ashish Vidyarthi
I’m not gonna buy something without planning. If I buy $100,000 worth of gold, I gotta put $100,000 aside for my family in case something happens. You look kind of stupid wearing all that gold and you didn’t have no plan.
Mr. T
The funniest thing happened in one of my first scenes. In the beginning Emma was really arrogant and punk and in every scene she would slam the door when she walked in or out.
Dannii Minogue
I think the hip hop world and the rock world still have a lot in common, but it certainly seems like things happen and break at a much faster pace in the hip hop world.
Bubba Sparxxx
Not one example of significant self-generation or self-organization can be found in the entire realm of nature…. Without causation, nothing happens and without organization by an intelligent being, systems tend to lower and lower levels of complexity.
Hugh Ross
Being an effective leader is enormously complex. It requires vision to see a future, dedication to make things happen, sensitivity to people who are quirky at times, and personal confidence without arrogance.

Sometimes things happen in life, sometimes they don’t. Don’t get me wrong: I have no regrets – if I could turn the clock back 10 or 20 years, I wouldn’t want to fundamentally change the path my life has taken.
Nicola Sturgeon
Eventually I lost interest in trying to control my life, to make things happen in a way that I thought I wanted them to be. I began to practice surrendering to the universe and finding out what “it” wanted me to do.
Shakti Gawain
The best teachers have shown me that things have to be done bit by bit. Nothing that means anything happens quickly – we only think it does.
Joseph Bruchac
When something happens people didn’t predict, they find ways to explain it as if it were predictable.
Michael Lewis
There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate.
Newt Gingrich
When things happen to you in the worst way, you live with it, you go over it, you think, ‘What else could I have done?
Cal Ripken, Jr.
I feel like some of the best roles that I’ve gotten to play I could’ve never preconceived. These things happen to you in an unexpected fashion, so it’s hard to pre-imagine what that would be because some of the best opportunities I’ve had I could’ve never anticipated or expected.
Alden Ehrenreich
It’s just a joy travelling with your job. You get to wander around these interesting cities and then things happen or you observe things and you go on stage at the end of the night and chat about it.
Russell Howard
I live very normally, I go out with my friends, we go to the movies, I queue, we go to restaurants. Then if something happens to remind me that I’m an actress then I become a little different and things become a little heavy.
Catherine Deneuve
I’m all about what happens organically. If something happens, it was meant to happen.
Kay Panabaker
The only crying shame about it is, when good things happen to you, you run short of time. It takes the same amount of time, however, to tell people, ‘It’s good to see you again. I’m sorry we only have a minute to talk,’ as it does to say, ‘I don’t have time to talk with you’ period.
Barbara Mandrell
There are rules, and when certain things happen, there are ceratin consequences.
Sarah Paulson
I’m very religious. I believe that things happen, and you have to go along with them.
Debbie Reynolds
In War more than anywhere else in the world things happen differently to what we had expected, and look differently when near, to what they did at a distance.
Carl von Clausewitz
For me to do a story, something has to happen to someone. It’s a story in the way you learn what a story is in third grade, where there is a person, and things happen to them, and then something big happens, and they realize something new.
Ira Glass
I think that my life changed at 50. Many things happened. Menopause, the end of youth and my daughter died that year after being a whole year in a coma. So I think that I changed and I became an elder at 50.
Isabel Allende
Why do bad things happen to good people? That only happened once and He volunteered.
R. C. Sproul
Wealth, women and wine can make anything happen in this world!
Ravinder Singh
In this world, where everything happens so fast, it’s hard to sit back, take the time and contemplate.
Juliana Hatfield
You can’t say, ‘You’re a scorer, you score. You rebound, you rebound.’ Basketball is more than that. Basketball is knowing the next step, knowing the next play, knowing how to make things happen.
Charles Oakley
A curious thing happened: the terrains of England began to impinge on my consciousness, altering, then effacing, the world outside the library window… I was wrapped in a pleasurable dreaminess. I was in a better place. If true life existed elsewhere, then I had almost found it.
Garry Disher
You may have had unfair things happen to you, but the depth of your pain is an indication of the height of your future.
Joel Osteen
Mind is infinitely creative. And when it’s not stuck, that’s where the joy comes from. Something happens, and the way we think about it, understand it, see it, is actually hilarious, whereas before it used to depress us.
Byron Katie
I don’t know why terrible things happen to us sometimes.  But I have to believe that something good is going to come of this.
Carrie Underwood
I always think before an important shot: What is the worst that can happen on this shot? I can whiff it, shank it, or hit it out-of-bounds. But even if one of those bad things happens, I’ve got a little money in the bank, my wife still loves me, and my dog won’t bite me when I come home.
Cary Middlecoff
The best things happen in the dark.
John Cameron Mitchell
When you live in New York, one of two things happen – you either become a New Yorker, or you feel more like the place you came from.

A phenomenon occurs but because you’re in the middle of it, you just think it’s your life-until it’s over. And then you look back and say, What an unusual thing happened to me in the ’60s.
Paul Simon
Everything happens for a reason.
Ronda Rousey
I’m chasing my goals, and I haven’t been able to make things happen the way I want them to happen. It doesn’t feel good, but the answer is simple: I just have to work hard and to focus on cutting down the number of mistakes I make.
Junior dos Santos
The people in flight from the terror behind-strange things happen to them, some bitterly cruel and some so beautiful that the faith is refired forever.
John Steinbeck
Mace, you never read Smoky the Cowhorse,did you? No. Well,ol’ Smoky, he had somebad things happen to him,had the heart knocked clean out of him.But he hung on and came out of it okay.I’ve been bashed up pretty good,Mason, but I’m going to make it.
S. E. Hinton
To God all things are beautiful, good, and right; human beings, on the other hand, deem some things right and others wrong. It would not be better if things happened to people just as they
I sometimes wish we could have, over the next five or ten years, a lot of horrid things happening-you know, like tornadoes in the Midwest and so forth-that would get people very concerned about climate change.
Thomas Schelling
We need to do something about gun violence in America. But every time one of these things happen, we say the same thing, and then we don’t seem to be able to do anything. And that needs to change.

I think the best thing about my game is my vision. I see things happen before they do.

John Coltrane
Things happen in life and you can’t control them. It sucks and you have to move on.

Caroline Myss

M. Stanton Evans
I’ve known lots of people that are talented and nothing happens. It’s not about talent, it’s relentless drive.
Downtown Julie Brown
Music does a lot of things for a lot of people. It’s transporting, for sure. It can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It’s uplifting, it’s encouraging, it’s strengthening.
Aretha Franklin
It doesn’t help to wait until something happens and then prosecute the offenders, especially if it’s the idea of the offender to extinguish himself in the commission of the crime.
John Ashcroft
When the universe throws something your way, or things happen, I’m one of those people that goes with it, and I don’t fight it.
Machine Gun Kelly
In any offense you put me in, when things break down, I’m going to get outside the pocket and move … West Coast, East Coast. It doesn’t matter. I’m taking off if I have to, to make things happen.
Michael Vick
I think people want the intimacy in the engagement of sitting in a theater with people and seeing something happen live and engage in that. I think that could be a very powerful experience.
Colin Callender
If you go out and make some things happen, you will fill the world with hope.
Barack Obama
I realize that things happen for a reason
Karl Malone
When a leader makes the choice to put the safety and lives of the people inside the organization first, to sacrifice their comforts and sacrifice the tangible results, so that the people remain and feel safe and feel like they belong, remarkable things happen.
Simon Sinek
Things happen in ‘If This is a Man’ that are beyond ordinary daily experience, but it is still us to whom they are happening, and the understanding Levi seeks is no different in kind from that sought by Shakespeare in ‘King Lear’, or Conrad in ‘The Heart of Darkness’.
Howard Jacobson
Putting your ego aside and confronting your weaknesses and just letting things happen is hard. Not to use a Scientology term, but it’s difficult to do an emotional or an artistic audit.
Annie E. Clark
Things don’t just happen, they have reasons. And the reasons have reasons. And the reasons for the reasons have reasons. And then the things that happen make other things happen, so they become reasons themselves. Nothing moves forward in a straight line, nothing is straightforward.
Kevin Brooks
I think some of the most significant things happen in history when you get the right people in the right place at the right time and I think that’s what we are.
Chokwe Lumumba
I ask a million questions, and I insist on having answers. I think that is what we have to do. I have to know what the director wants. Some are very much in their head, and I need to force it out of them. I just can’t play around for eight hours and see if something happens.
Mads Mikkelsen
Let others probe the mystery if they can.Time-harried prisoners of Shall and Will -The right thing happens to the happy man.
Theodore Roethke
People make mistakes, and bad things happen.
Marcus Luttrell
If you just go with the flow, no matter what weird things happen along the way, you always end up exactly where you belong.
Tom Upton
As far as where I go when I die, the concept that I am simple going to flick out, like a light bulb, to me is not only spiritually impossible to believe, but logically it is laughable – the idea that we simply die and nothing happens.
Stephen King
It’s almost like you see too much, because when it happens for real, everything flies at you so fast, you never get a sense of the ice and where everyone is at that one moment.
Steve Yzerman
The air in Foxborough is just a little different. Like, Special things happen here. Winning happens here.
Chris Hogan
It’s the moment when you’re making the clothes – “Doesn’t this need that?” That’s how it comes. It’s not from, like, thinking for hours. Most of the things happen when you are in the fitting. When you make clothes, the fitting is the decisive moment.
Tomas Maier
We need to keep our ears open to the realities of life. If we don’t act on life and take action to make things happen, it will act on us and give us results we might not want.
Robin Sharma
I often think of setting as an important character in my story. ‘Dark Powers’ takes place in Doncaster, a Maryland Eastern Shore community rich with watermen and historic atmosphere. I modeled it after a stunning little town called St. Michaels, but since a lot of bad things happen in Doncaster, I changed the name.
Ruth Glick
You could come out and play a flawless game and still lose to a quality team; you could do things right, but they hit shots and things happen.
Manu Ginobili
They say before you make something happen you have to see it yourself. I have been seeing it for a long time and I am living my dream.
Adrien Broner
I like to work with the best artists, full stop, around the world, and just make things happen man.
Dizzee Rascal
Once you learn the art of relaxation, everything happens spontaneously and effortlessly.
Mata Amritanandamayi
I don’t think anything happens without the press, one way or the other. I think it’s all done for it. You saw it start, really, with Martin Luther King in Birmingham. He did the bus thing. And I don’t think anything that followed would have happened if the press hadn’t paid attention.
Garry Winogrand
Every year, something happens, and it turns me in a direction about where I need to go and what I need to do to give these guys direction.
Pete Carroll
To me, the writer’s main job is to just make the story unscroll in such a way that the reader is snared – she’s right there, seeing things happen and caring about them. And if you dedicate yourself to this job, the meanings more or less take care of themselves. That’s the theory, anyway.
George Saunders
People sometimes say the way things happen in the movies is unreal, but actually, it’s the way things happen to you in life that’s unreal.
Andy Warhol
I believe that when things happen, they happen with a purpose.
William Shatner
When everything in your life is right on track, it’s easy to believe that things happen for a reason. It’s easy to have faith. But when things start to go wrong, then it’s very hard to hold on to that faith. It’s hard not to wonder who’s reasons these things are happening for.
Dakota Fanning
I think something happens only when people find that they are moved with others, find themselves linked or allied in new ways, showing up or speaking out in ways that resonate with one another. That resonating can be very compelling and lead to moving and speaking more emphatically and with sharper focus.
Judith Butler
Interesting things happen along borders – transitions – not in the middle where everything is the same.
Neal Stephenson
Things happen in a way that surprises. That’s why I’m reluctant to predict. You cannot predict.
Amira Hass
Sex education pretty much taught me about how my body works, why certain things happen when I’m around girls, and what sex was, and I think that there’s a lack of clarity between sex and love – a lot of people think it’s the same thing when it’s not.
Depression is internal. The upswings and downswings have pretty much nothing to do with what’s going on in the external world. It’s not like something sad happens to you and then you feel sad. Good things happen, but you feel sad anyway.
Graham Moore
Bad things happen when you try to let things just happen. You can’t be passive.
Euny Hong
I tend to prioritize emotional realism above the known laws of time and space, and when you do that, it’s inevitable that strange things happen. Which can be quite enjoyable, I think.
Helen Oyeyemi
Let go of what has passed. Let go of what may come. Let go of what is happening now. Don’t try to figure anything out. Don’t try to make anything happen. Relax, right now, and rest.
Things, very strange things, happen in folktales and there is never much attention given to the whys and wherefores.
Marisa Silver
You know it’s easy to say you shouldn’t do something and then something happens and you say, ‘Wow, I wish I would have done something.
Louis Susman
I am the most senior actor in ‘Devdas,’ yet I was not invited to Cannes. I guess these things happen in the industry.
Jackie Shroff
I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen.
Katy Perry
I just keep getting inspired to believe that dreams come true and anything can happen, ’cause I’ve watched so many impossible things happen.
Machine Gun Kelly
If anything happens to me, I hope that I would’ve raised my children in a way that they know how to take care of themselves. I want them to know how to make themselves happy. It’s important to work in a field that you absolutely love so that even when problems arise, you love what you do.
Rachel Roy
You know, a documentary is only interesting once in a while. If you look at a whole book of Dorothea [Lange]’s where she has row after row of people bending over and digging out carrots – that can be very tedious. And so it’s only once in a while that something happens that is worth doing.
Imogen Cunningham
No matter how far we go into the future, there will always be new things happening, new information coming in, new worlds to explore, a constantly expanding domain of life, consciousness, and memory.
Freeman Dyson
It’s not life or death, the labyrinth. Suffering. Doing wrong and having wrong things happen to you. That’s the problem. Bolivar was talking about the pain, not about the living or dying. How do you get out of the labyrinth of suffering?
John Green
I didn’t know who I was and I didn’t know if what was in me was any good. But my parents taught me to believe in myself and to work until something happens.
T. D. Jakes
I feel God’s presence in my life, as a direct result of prayer. We say, ‘Why, God?’ when bad things happen to us. But I don’t know how anybody can live without faith.
Sara Evans
I’m very thankful to players like John Stockton and Spud Webb. They’ve made it possible for someone like me to make it. I think teams are actually looking for one player under 6-feet now, because they make things happen.
Scott Brooks
Gratitude is not only a response to God in good times – it’s ultimately the very will of God in hard times. Gratitude isn’t only a celebration when good things happen. It’s a declaration that God is good no matter what happens.
Ann Voskamp
It’s a noir world. Unfair things happen.
Rob Thomas
You could say that it’s in talking movies that inner life begins to appear. You can see things happen to the faces of people that were neither planned nor rehearsed.
Mike Nichols
I see the people in Detroit are very – they’re like a lot of cities, but they’re very proud to be from there and they really want to see change and they really want to see good things happen.
Kid Rock
I don’t write material. Funny things happen to me in the course of a day, and I just make notes.
Kevin Hart
Sometimes in life, things happen that will knock you back. Hell, you may get beaten to your knees but you must never ALLOW this world to knock you down! Conjure up all the strength you have and drive through whatever it is keeping you on your knees. Build up the strength and your knees may never buckle again!
Adam Johnson
The NBA tries to be about flash. But real fans recognize the guy who makes things happen.
Gary Payton
Good things happen when you go for it!
Alan Webb
In general, I think the world is a good place if you work hard, believe in yourself, have good intentions, and if you are kind to people, I believe that good things happen to you.
Rachel Platten
My time in the arena made me realize how I needed to stop punishing [my mother] for something she couldn’t help, specifically the crushing depression she fell into after my father’s death. Because sometimes things happen to people and they’re not equipped to deal with them.
Suzanne Collins
What happens after you die? Lot’s of things happen after you die – they just don’t involve you
Louis C. K.
I believe that everything happens for a reason, and what seems bad at first might in fact be something of a blessing.
Robert Greene
This usually happens in the white-collar classes: These people take to worshipping pointlessness. Examples are Twin Peaks, Christo’s artwork, and academic liberal politics. But a strange thing happens; these people view their ultra pointlessness as a way of being like God.
Noah Cicero
I’d just written the book Ocean Of Sound, and this terrible thing happened in my life: my wife committed suicide. I was a single parent because of that; I was completely shattered. I had a book that I’d just finished that had been produced through a really, really terrible period, but I had managed to finish it.
David Toop
Let’s make something happen to this world.
Marina Keegan
When you fail to communicate, there are gray areas. And when there’s gray areas, then bad things happen.
Matt Nagy
Illinois is large, but we do not always receive our fair share of federal resources because our leadership is often divided. When we all row together, good things happen.
Raja Krishnamoorthi
I like to dream, but I like to make things happen.
Heidi Klum
There are people who make things happen, there are people who
watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what
happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes
things happen.
Jim Lovell
We’re not always going to understand why something happens.True faith is trusting even when it doesn’t make sense
Joel Osteen
I don’t put myself into the category of ‘rock star writing his biography.’ That’s because we live our lives by falling into experiences. Things happen to us. Something you do takes hold of you, and then you do a lot of it.
Art Garfunkel
Therapy isn’t Radio.We don’t need to constantly fill the air with sounds. Sometimes, when its quite, surprising things happen.
Mary Pipher
Why do bad things happen? For pedagogical reasons, so that we can experience the power of Allah, catch a glimpse of Hell and fear it, so that we can practice seeking refuge in Him and, when relief comes give thanks to His mercy. Darkness was created so that, like plants, we could yearn and turn to the light.
Leila Aboulela
The way you challenge Superman is by having things happen very, very quickly in different places and then asking, ‘Who does he save first? What powers must he use to save each person or stop each disaster?’ That’s one of the ways you make him interesting beyond the thematic and moral issues that make Superman.
Jim Lee
I do know it’s great to have a support from a fan base of a team. Football is such a team game, such a team aspect to it… Good things happen, the praise is spread around; and bad things happen, usually it’s not just one person’s fault.
Andrew Luck
In radio, they say, nothing happens until the announcer says it happens.
Ernie Harwell
Rule number one: Always stick around for one more drink. That’s when things happen. That’s when you find out everything you want to know.
John Berendt
Decision is the spark that ignites action. Until a decision is made nothing happens.
Wilferd Peterson
I try and write the way things happen. I don’t try and fulfill people’s wishes
Harvey Pekar
I spent most of the eighties, most of my life, riding around in somebody else’s car, in possession of, or ingested of, something illegal, on my way from something illegal to something illegal with many illegal things happening all around me
Iggy Pop
When you train as hard as we do, bad things happen sometimes. It’s just part of the sport.
Stipe Miocic
My mother is a survivor who’s had a lot of things happen in her life that have been very trying.
Michael C. Hall
I really believe things happen for a reason, and sometimes that reason isn’t revealed until much much, much, much later.
Tim Gunn
If things happen for the good, I say that Lord Krishna wished it so, and if anything goes against me, even then I say Lord Krishna wanted it to happen that way.
Sushma Swaraj
There may be arrangements to have me retired but I don’t know. Things happen that I enjoy doing, and as long as I enjoy doing them I’ll go about doing them, I guess.
John Hurt
Only two things happen to writers when they die: Either their work survives, or it becomes forgotten.
Stephen King
Live life and take chances. Believe that everything happens for a reason and don’t regret. Love to the fullest and you will find true happiness in life. Realize that things go wrong and people change, but things do go on. Sometimes things weren’t meant to be. What is supposed to happen will work its way out.
Oprah Winfrey
Nothing happens until you decide. Make a decision and watch your life move forward.
Oprah Winfrey
I do believe everything happens for a reason, and I’m extremely grateful for that day because it led me into this life!
J. R. Martinez
If you have enough fantasies, you’re ready, in the event that something happens.
Sheila Ballantyne
Under pressure, would I fold and disappear, or would I show everyone that when bad things happen, you fight?
Drew Brees
Within the framework of something very dramatic, funny things happen. Organically, from them.
Gloria Calderon Kellett
What turned me on then, and turns me on even today – and when the time comes from me to retire from management I think I’d still be interested in it – is that everything that happens in the world affects the price of securities.
Sanford I. Weill
Jon Scoffield was an incredible director and producer at ATV. I met him when I was 30 and he made great things happen in my career. He’s still alive, but we’re no longer in touch.
Nigel Lythgoe
Photography is about being patient. I’m quiet, I watch the situation. I let things happen and photograph them when they happen; that’s my approach, although trying to anticipate events at a party with lots of people is hard.
Olivia Arthur
Something my mom taught me when I was little is that everything happens for a reason. Retiring was scary and it was tough to give up gymnastics, but so many great opportunities have come from it that I never expected. And those wouldn’t have happened had I not accepted my injury as a way to try something new.
Shawn Johnson
Once upon a time, began the story of you.Many perilous, wonderful, harrowing, brilliant, delightful, profound things happened.And yet—the most exciting twists and best turns are yet to come. And it absolutely does not matter how old or young you are.Like a bright carpet of wonders, enjoy the unrolling of your story.
Vera Nazarian
Everything happens for a reason, and sometimes, that might be difficult to understand, especially when things don’t go the way we plan or expect. If we choose to see things positively and trust in God, he will fulfill his purpose in our lives.
Betsy Landin
I’ve had some incredibly triumphal things happen in my life.
Stevie Wonder
Life ain’t easy. Terrible things happen to everyone. You have to keep your sense of humor, give something of yourself to others, make friends who are younger than you, learn new things, and have fun.
George Vaillant
I guess what I’m passionate about is, I see so many things that I find that there’s no real solution to, and you’re only here for such a brief moment in time, even if you live to be a hundred years old. Yet, what happens within that time frame? So many things happen.
Annie Lennox
We’ve passed an energy bill in the House, to help us be less reliant upon foreign oil so we can get gas prices down. But nothing happens in the Senate.
Steve Chabot
The magic of words is that they have power to do more than convey meaning; not only do they have the power to make things clear, they make things happen.
Frederick Buechner
No great thing happens suddenly.
Rebecca West
My character Jack in the New York Spring Spectacular is a lot of fun. He’s playful, he’s full of life. He can make things come to life. He can make things happen.
Derek Hough
I prefer to subscribe to that whole, “everything happens for a reason” theory, mostly because the alternative is too disturbing to think about.
Lauren Barnholdt
A lot of weird things happen in life that are not always pertaining to your main objective.
Hiro Murai
Improbable things happen a lot…
Jordan Ellenberg
We’re very prepared: Infection-control people in hospitals over the past two months have been reviewing all their infection- control procedures because we anticipated just this sort of thing happening-a person coming from West Africa, they were healthy at the time they traveled, but got sick here.
William Schaffner
Let there be nothing untried; for nothing happens by itself, but men obtain all things by trying.
The moment is freedom. — I couldn’t live by a rigid schedule. I try to live freely from moment to moment, letting things happen and adjusting to them.
Bruce Lee
One thing can make many other things happen.
Charlize Theron
I definitely made the wrong choices. I left Holland too early, I probably should’ve stayed one more year for my development, but these things happen.
Ryan Babel
I think it’s an interesting thing to me, because we have this desire for everything to be explained to us. But if you go through your daily actions, very little ends up having a written-down explanation for why things happen, or why people do specific things.
Alice Sebold
Sometimes when really terrible things happen, something beautiful emerges out of it.
Pramila Jayapal
Something happens inside of us when we are courteous and deferential toward others. It is all part of a refining process, which if persisted in, will change our very natures.
Gordon B. Hinckley
I don’t trust tragedies much. It’s easy to make a person sad by showing him something tragic. We all recognize when sad things happen: someone dies, someone loses a loved one, young love is crushed. It’s much harder to make a man laugh-what’s funny to one person isn’t funny to another.
Ilona Andrews
I was in a job interview and I opened a book and started reading. Then I said to the guy ‘Let me ask you a question. If you are in a spaceship that is traveling at the speed of light, and you turn on the headlights, does anything happen?’ He said ‘I don’t know’. I said ‘I don’t want your job’.
Steven Wright
He was the sort of guy who took a lot without giving her anything back The more he hurt her the more desperately she loved him. Life’s strange. Sometimes things happen almost as if we’re punishing ourselves for some fault that we can’t really identify.
Guillaume Musso
[I am a co – creator], an active agent in this universe who makes things happen. If I want the world to change, I have to change it.
Danah Zohar
I don’t miss much about my childhood. I lived in a good neighborhood, a wacky neighborhood. It was a very boy-heavy neighborhood – kind of Lord of the Flies-y. So many weird things happened, funny things.
Justin Theroux
Things happen overnight for some people, not everyone.
Saqib Saleem
We have no George Pattons anymore. We have no Ulysses S. Grants. We have none of the swashbuckling generals that actually made things happen.
Erik Prince
It might be that some day I shall be drowned by the sea, or die of pneumonia from sleeping out at night, or be robbed and strangled by strangers. These things happen. Even so, I shall be ahead because of trusting the beach, the night and strangers.
Janet Reno
Just on a practical side, if you wake up early in the morning – like at 4:30 in the morning – you’re going to have some free time to yourself to make things happen, to take care of things that are important to you.
Jocko Willink
The place where you’re from defines who you are. You put yourself in the wrong situation, the wrong things happen.
Vince Staples
Invariably something happens at a U.S. Open where the golf course gets out of control one day, they have one pin that’s out of control. It always seems to happen. But they’ve gotten better about the height of the rough.
Payne Stewart
People always go on about me being an inspiration, which is nice. But it’s an unrealistic pedestal to be put on. There are other people out there who have had things happen to them, not just me.
Katie Piper
Things happen. Things change. It’s part of life.
Mike Budenholzer
Fundamentals are right down to earth. And one fundamental is: You have to make calls. Nothing happens until you make a call. It’s that fundamental!
Ben Feldman
Are some people destined for a great fate, or to do great things? Or is it only that they’re born somehow with that great passion – and if they find themselves in the right circumstances, then things happen? It’s the sort of thing you wonder.
Diana Gabaldon
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
Elinor Smith
I just try to keep an open mind, and that’s the way a lot of good things happen.
Paul Rodgers
I’m one of those people that think certain things happen at certain times for all the right reasons.
Paul Walker
I’m intrigued by the way in which physical appearance can often direct a person’s life; things happen differently for a beautiful woman than for a plain one.
Penelope Lively
Play in curiosity is where everything happens.
Andrew Zuckerman
What would we be without the fans? They’re more important than me, because they make our sport great; they make things happen. We put on the show, but if people don’t react to it, we are nothing. So, the fans, basically we should roll out the red carpet for them.
Jens Voigt
I guess a lot of things happen still.
Debbie Reynolds
Today we live in a world that judges its achievements by speed and busyness. В… We are so busy making things happen that we have little time left to think about the value of what is happening. We urgently need people who concentrate on the meaning of life rather than simply the speed.
Joan D. Chittister
There is a spirit and a need and a man at the beginning of every great human advance. Every one of these must be right for that particular moment of history, or nothing happens.
Coretta Scott King
…your memories will be muddled and uncataloged – past, present, and imagination all mixed together. The same thing happens in dreams.
Dan Brown
Soldiers expect the noncommissioned officer to be technically proficient, up front, and honest with them. Soldiers must know that NCOs care, that they can approach the NCO for guidance and direction, and that NCOs can make things happen when a difficult situation arises.
Glen E. Morrell
September knew a number of curse words, most of which she heard the girls at school saying in the bathrooms, in hushed voices, as if the words could make things happen just by being spoken, as if they were fairy words, and had to be handled just so.
Catherynne M. Valente
Horrible things happen, but were they horrible? No, they were just circumstances of the world.
Brendan Fraser
Bad things happen. And the human brain is especially adept at making sure that we keep track of these events. This is an adaptive mechanism important for survival.
David Perlmutter
We go through our careers and things happen to us. Those experiences made me what I am.
Thomas Keller
I cant duplicate my own successes, because part of the creation of that effect is making something happen that you didn’t expect
Brian Eno
There’s good and bad in every arena. It’s funny, some people, the reason they’re in the underground is because they’re lazy and don’t make things happen for themselves.
Shepard Fairey
In the real world, nothing happens at the right place at the right time. It is the job of journalists and historians to correct that.
Mark Twain
Change doesn’t have to be hard, and healing doesn’t have to hurt. Surely by now you know that every thing happens for a reason! There is something better awaiting you on the other side of this.
Iyanla Vanzant
We take art, and I love all that. But I also like science for some reason. I just like finding out why things happen.
Elle Fanning
Over many decades, our usual practice is that if something we like goes down, we buy more and more. Sometimes something happens, you realize you’re wrong, and you get out. But if you develop correct confidence in your judgment, buy more and take advantage of stock prices.
Charlie Munger
My mother taught me that the universe guides, teaches, and offers up gifts… even when bad things happen.
John Wozniak
Also one of my heroes is Syd Mead, who designed the vehicles for the first Tron. So, there are so many beautiful things happening here. And working with Joe was great. He’s an architect, so I worked with other directors in between who were just about the action.
Daniel Simon
Things don’t always turn out exactly the way you want them to be and you feel disappointed. You are not always going to be the winner. That’s when you have to stop and figure out why things happened the way they did and what you can do to change them.
Jennifer Lopez
Appreciate your surroundings and be grateful for it and that’s when good things happen.
Conor McGregor
I detest that saying Everything happens for a reason; its nonsense.
Gary Kemp
You can have immediate regrets, but if you look at stuff and say, ‘Things happen for a reason’, there’s a fatalistic thing about it. Something will happen that will justify it in some way.
Martin Landau
To me, the best projects are the ones where you have a pretty good idea of what the spine of it’s gonna be, but then all sorts of things happen that you could’ve never predicted, and those are the magic moments of the films.
Marshall Curry
Sometimes you have to shake the tree in order to make things happen. And if that has a political cost, I will take it, as long as it saves lives.
Carmen Yulin Cruz
I tend to over-analyse things. I’m not the type of person to flip a coin and let things happen.
Emily Browning
We live in such a noisy world that we need to stop and just let things happen. Let it grow.
Sally Quinn
I define science fiction as fiction in which things happen that are not possible today – that depend, for instance, on advanced space travel, time travel, the discovery of green monsters on other planets or galaxies, or that contain various technologies we have not yet developed.
Margaret Atwood
A good hurdler has to be completely familiar with everything that goes on so if something happens he can automatically make an adjustment.
Rod Milburn
The expression ‘there is nothing like the good old days’ does not mean that fewer bad things happened before, but fortunately, that people tend to forget about them.
Ernesto Sabato
You’re born and then you’re on your own, you start having relationships, you’re developing relationships to the world and your wider community, and then disappointing things happen.
I think half of our life is written out for us and things happen the way their supposed to happen.
The more limitations you put on a character often times the better a character you’ll make them, the more interesting the story becomes because the character can’t simply wave a hand and make something happen. They have to work within the framework.
Brandon Sanderson
I am not my thoughts, emotions, sense perceptions, and experiences. I am not the content of my life. I am Life. I am the space in which all things happen. I am consciousness. I am the Now. I Am.
Eckhart Tolle
When you face challenges, ask yourself what is the lesson here? Focus on the lesson and don’t complain about the test. Everything happens for a reason. Every person you meet, may teach you something – good or bad.
Rita Zahara
It’s very rare to watch a movie and think, ‘That’s the movie we shot!’ So many things happen, with edits and things getting cut out.
Jessica Rothe
Things happen on the field. It has happened between me and other players, but we always left it out there.
Gautam Gambhir
I think crazy people are helpful, crazy people who are the catalysts who make other things happen for everyone else. It’s almost as if they’re not really making things happen in their own life, but their hyperactivity is triggered for everyone else.
Whit Stillman
Wit is its own remedy. Liberty and commerce bring it to its true standard. The only danger is the laying an embargo. The same thing happens here as in the case of trade: impositions and restrictions reduce it to a low ebb; nothing is so advantageous to it as a free port.
Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl of Shaftesbury
Everything happens for a reason and, of course at times it’s very discouraging, but at the end of the day you can’t take it personally and move onward because if you let it sit with you, then it starts to eat away at you and you’re allowing someone else to steal your excitement. No one wants that.
Lily Collins
All of us suffer some injuries from experiences that seem to have no rhyme or reason. We cannot understand or explain them. We may never know why some things happen in this life. The reason for some of our suffering is known only to the Lord.
James E. Faust
I did what most writers do when something happens that’s overwhelming, fascinating, moving, all of that. I didn’t know what else to do about it except write about it.
Patti Davis
I didn’t want the book [of memoirs] out, naturally – Larry [Grobel] knew that for 20 years, 15 at least, I didn’t want anything written about me. Then, you know, things happen, finally it’s OK and I trust Larry. Nothing about it is salacious in any way.
Al Pacino
It’s OK to have nice things happen to you – you should embrace that.
Matt Czuchry
I like when things happen organically and make sense.
Kristen Taekman
Why does anything ever happen? Some things happen and some don’t.
Kid Rock
I like to give dimension to shots inside action scenes. It’s demanding because you have to rehearse a lot of things happening at the same time and frame all those things in a shot. But I feel like when you accomplish that then you’ve got a cool action scene.
Jose Padilha
This was great fun and a nice paycheck and then, as these things happen, the show was canceled.
Michael Storm
The animal man lives in the senses. If he does not get enough to eat, he is miserable; or if something happens to his body, he is miserable. In the senses both his misery and his happiness begin and end.
Swami Vivekananda
Things happen all the time and nothing ever goes the way you truly planned.
Anthony Johnson
Everything is pretty good in my life, and like everybody else, things happen, and you put your head down and solve challenges.
Brian France
Gambling can turn into a dangerous two-way street when you least expect it. Weird things happen suddenly, and your life can go all to pieces.
Hunter S. Thompson
Whatever is meant to be will be and you just have to trust that things happen for a reason. It’s made handling disappointments that much easier because I just remember my mom’s words and know that something better is meant to come my way.
Amanda Bynes
I love to go to the places where things happen. I like to walk the walk and see how the light falls and what winter feels like.
David McCullough
There are a lot of things happening that show us that this, right now, is a time to love.
Stevie Wonder
If you put enough smart people together in one space, good things happen.
Erik Hersman
Rainy day savings are incredibly important, because from time to time, bad things happen. And if you’re not prepared for that, it’s going to be really terrible.
Dan Ariely
Something happens to me when I witness someone’s courage. They may not know I’m watching and I might not let them know. But something happens to me that will last me for a lifetime. To fill me when I’m empty, and rock me when I’m low.
Holly Near
A great thing happening now in art is that artists are using the figure, the body, clothing, life.
Issey Miyake
You have to realise that players change every year, just like we change because every year is different, as things happen in our lives.
Mauricio Pochettino
Nothing happens to you that has not happened to someone else.
William Feather
People sometimes feel frustrated about what’s going on in our oceans and environment, and ‘Whale Wars’ shows that ordinary people can take action and make things happen.
Paul Watson
Sometimes when you’ve had a long series of disappointing things happen, you can get into the very bad habit of just expecting more of what you’ve already had.
Joyce Meyer
One of my core beliefs is that everything happens for a reason and some things just aren’t to my taste. All the things that happen in my life are divinely inspired and they happen for a purpose.
John Assaraf
People make things happen. All the rest is just window dressing
Oprah Winfrey
For 13 to be unlucky would require there to be some kind of cosmic intelligence that counts things that humans count and that also makes certain things happen on certain dates or in certain places according to whether the number 13 ‘is involved’ or not (whatever ‘is involved’ might mean).
Douglas Hofstadter
I’m just trying to make movies simply about life. Naturally, when I’m doing that, horror, violence, and all those kinds of things get mixed in. All those things happen in reality.
Takashi Miike
People bring flowers and that’s pretty memorable. I actually got a rose from one girl. She was so beautiful! I love all the screenings to be honest with you. I don’t think I have gone to one single bad screening! Even if negative things happen, I turn it into positive reaction.
Tommy Wiseau
A lot of the time nothing happens in a day.
Nate Silver
Whatever you do to gain success, you have to hang in there and hope good things happen. Always think positive.
Don Rickles
I’m a believer in karma, and I’m also a believer that things happen for a reason.
Bill Goldberg
Well, I look at it like this: When you go to a restaurant, the less you know about what happens in the kitchen, the more you enjoy your meal. If the soup tastes good, everything’s cool, and you don’t necessarily want to know what’s in it. The same thing holds true with movies.
Jeffrey Wright
Because something is significantly wrong with a creature that sacrifices its children’s lives to settle its differences. You can spin it any way you like… But in the end, who does it benefit? No one. The truth is, it benefits no one to live in a world where these things happen
Suzanne Collins
…one of the reasons I like classes and structured learning is that they encourage -and contribute to-the belief that life is orderly, that things happen when they are supposed to happen, that actions have predictable results and that events are controllable.
James Roby
I feel like Chicago it’s so different, we have a different story to tell, we are seeing these things happen in this city every day, and whether you participate in them or not, you see it and get influenced by it.
Polo G
I write where I can see things happen, and then things get glued together. I do have the final scene, but that really is an epilogue. It’s not part of the plot.
Diana Gabaldon
When you’re a good person, good things happen to you.
Stephon Marbury
Nothing happens randomly.
Christiane Northrup
The nature of the movies is different than it was five years ago, and they’re all driven by the possibilities of CGI, which means you can make anything happen on screen that you can possibly desire.
Tom Hanks
Space is certainly something more complicated than the average person would probably realize. Space is not just an empty background in which things happen.
Alan Guth
Beautiful things happen in your life when you distance yourself from the negative things.
Zig Ziglar
The world is so unpredictable. Things happen suddenly, unexpectedly. We want to feel we are in control of our own existence. In some ways we are, in some ways we’re not. We are ruled by the forces of chance and coincidence.
Paul Auster
While there are so many great things in my life, you get older, and you have responsibilities. And things happen, like my dad dying – things that are tough to shake off. And there are things I’m still trying to figure out.
Paul Rudd
it’s been my experience that while impossible things happen frequently, improbable ones never do.
Craig L. Rice
America has an ability to try to make some things happen that other countries don’t necessarily have.
John F. Kerry
If we don’t allow ourselves to experience joy and love, we will definitely miss out on filling our reservoir with what we need when. . . . hard things happen.
BrenГ© Brown
Just remember everything happens for a reason. We just have to pick ourselves up, and look on the bright side of life.
Megan Smith
Even though things happen by accident, you also unconsciously choose things that help you.
Nastassja Kinski
Being South Asian in the U.K. is like being Latino in the U.S., I would guess. It’s a bit more hood. You see things; things happen. I was bouncing between worlds. You’re acting from a very early age, when you have to code-switch like that. I’m a hybrid, a mongrel. I think many people live that life.
Riz Ahmed
On a live-action movie, things happen that are unexpected. In animation, you have to fabricate the feeling. That takes a tremendous amount of nuance until the film becomes sentient and gives back.
Gore Verbinski
Things happen fast. That’s this league. You can’t slow down, because it’s going.
Nick Foles
I do not believe that things happen accidentally; I believe you earn them.
Madeleine Albright
Creativity in its fullest sense includes both generating an idea and manifesting it- making something happen as a result.
Ned Herrmann
When the Hollywood thing happened, I thought at some point I’d get to the front of the queue: ‘Yes, hello, I’d like to play that role.’ But you don’t. You just join a different queue.
Olivia Williams
Am I doing anything? I do it with reference to the good of mankind. Does anything happen to me? I receive it and refer it to the gods, and the source of all things, from which all that happens is derived.
Marcus Aurelius
The stardom thing happened and now I’m trying to make a comeback, if you want to call it that.
Leif Garrett
Funny things happen to you in movies for silly reasons.
Michael Caine
When I wrote the first [Bond novel] in 1953, I wanted Bond to be an extremely dull, uninteresting man to whom things happened… when I was casting around for a name for my protagonist I thought by God, [James Bond] is the dullest name I ever heard.
Ian Fleming
Things happen every day. You can’t spend your whole life trying to guard against something happening. If you do that, in my opinion, you’ve wasted your life.
Tony Stewart
When people say to me: “Oh don’t worry, if one door closes another one opens…” If one door closes for me, go through the window – I’m not interested in waiting around for people to give me opportunities. I try and make things happen and if I am given opportunities I take them and work harder.
Noel Clarke
When I was campaigning, I told the people if nothing happens under my mandate it will still be a positive thing because my mandate will be used as a rupture between the past and the future.
Michel Martelly
Reading put perspective to any challenge I was facing and made me see that extraordinary people usually had extraordinary pain, difficulties or injustices. That’s part of why they have the drive and hunger to do good in the world, to make something happen.
Tony Robbins
Everything happens kind of the way it’s supposed to happen, and we just watch it unfold. And you can’t control it. Looking back, you can’t say, “I should’ve…” You didn’t, and had you, the outcome would have been different.
Rick Rubin
Some people talk of writer’s block – you got all of these ideas but nothing happens. The truth is, there’s no such thing as writer’s block. It’s to the degree that you want to write. The thing is that these things show up whenever they feel like it.
Jon Fratelli
Things happen when they’re supposed to happen.
Ayesha Curry
As always, things happen sooner rather than later on ‘Arrow.’
Marc Guggenheim
I think that when something happens when you’re growing up, like a death or divorce, it does open the world slightly because things aren’t as straightforward.
Felicity Jones
ThereВ isВ terrible suffering in our world today. Tragic things happen to good people. God does not cause them, nor does He always prevent them. He does, however, strengthen us and bless us with His peace, through earnest prayer.
Rex D. Pinegar
You can’t really explain why things happen.
Billy Butler
That kind of thing happens to black people every day in this country, and they don’t receive that kind of sentence he did, which was to go to prison on the weekends; I think he lectured there-an outside lecturer.
Ishmael Reed
Start before you’re ready. Good things happen when we start before we’re ready.
Steven Pressfield
I never wanted to be that person who leaves ‘SNL’ and nothing happens.
Rachel Dratch
There are two conflicting philosophies that I love: “Everything happens for a reason,” as well as “you can change everything that you have control over.”
Yara Shahidi
There is an important idea in psychology: The ‘just world theory,’ which says that it is very important for us to convince ourselves that the world is just and things happen for a reason. That there is some elemental fairness in everything, which creates the illusion of justice.
Malcolm Gladwell
Unless souls are saved, nothing is saved; there can be no world peace unless there is soul peace. World wars are only projections of the conflicts waged inside the souls of men and women, for nothing happens in the external world that has not first happened within a soul.
Fulton J. Sheen
Once you realize that everything happens for a reason, attitudes towards matters such as illnesses, or lawsuits, for example, change.
Shari Arison
It is crucial to have inspiring leaders who deliver on their promises. Cynicism has run deep, because many people think their vote does not matter or do vote and nothing happens.
Jesse Jackson
Frightening things happen in solitude.
Michael Finkel
I’m going to give you a little advice. There’s a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball.
Chevy Chase
In terms of doing things I take a fairly scientific approach to why things happen and how they happen. I don’t know if there’s a god or not, but I think religious principles are quite valid.
Bill Gates
I’m a believer that things happen. Fate is what happens.
George Carlin
I decided that it might be interesting to have terrible things happen to orphans over and over again.
Daniel Handler
Memory is the space in which a thing happens for a second time.
Paul Auster
Things happen and you live and you learn.
Mic Geronimo
Decision is the spark that ignites action. Until a decision is made, nothing happens…. Decision is the courageous facing of issues, knowing that if they are not faced, problems will remain forever unanswered.
Wilferd Peterson
Sometimes when I’m nervous, that’s when the most interesting things happen.
Chelsea Peretti
For the ordinary man is passive. Within a narrow circle (home life, and perhaps the trade unions or local politics) he feels himself master of his fate, but against major events he is as helpless as against the elements. So far from endeavoring to influence the future, he simply lies down and lets things happen to him.
George Orwell
All psychological research is completely barred by the interpretations of the psychoanalysts. Everything happens in the unconscious, and I don’t know what this unconscious is.
Nathalie Sarraute
One of the first lessons he or she learns is that in baseball anything, absolutely anything, can happen. Just two days ago as I write this, something happened that had never happened in baseball before.
John Thorn
The best things happen at the exit ramp of your comfort zone.
Karen Salmansohn
Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.
Laini Taylor
Allah’s blessings is like everyday. I can’t do nothing without mentioning ALLAH or one of his words. I can’t do nothing without coming across one of his blessings or doing something and be like that’s Allah talking to me or something happen to me and I say Allah gave me that.
Usually one or two things happen: Either you have an idea straightaway – the sort of sound that you want or the instrumentation or one particular sound that you want to feature – or you don’t.
Anne Dudley
A strange thing happens to me that I’m sure happens to a lot of actors when the camera starts rolling. I’m not ‘me’ any more.
Emily Browning
Then I reflect that all things happen, happen to one, precisely now. Century follows century, and things happen only in the present. There are countless men in the air, on land and at sea, and all that really happens happens to me.
Jorge Luis Borges
Money is the medium of exchange, and it’s how you make things happen. To say you hate it is some farfetched, idealistic crap.
Bobby Seale
There are people who just collect a bunch of footage and then edit it later. You definitely feel more protected when a director is moving on when you’ve actually felt something happen and you know they’re watching intently.
Matt Damon
I’m a believer of destiny and I believe I’m destiny’s child. I’ve seen the highs and I’ve seen the lows and I believe things happen for a reason and always for the best.
Shilpa Shetty
So is it just human nature to believe that things happen for a reason – to find some shred of meaning even in the worst experiences?
Christina Baker Kline
I’m not cynical, but the reality is that life is mortal. Terrible, sad things happen. Everybody loses friends and family. I’ll be on tour and get really scared if my wife won’t answer her phone within one minute. I’m sensitive.
Kurt Vile
I love to make things happen, I love to see things happen, I love to be a part of things that are happening.
Dolly Parton
Isn’t it sad that we only get upset about nasty things happening to people and places if television decides we should?
M.C. Beaton
I would be a president for all of the people, African- Americans, the inner cities. Devastating what’s happening to our inner cities. She’s been talking about it for years. As usual, she talks about it, nothing happens. She doesn’t get it done.
Donald Trump
I hate to keep repeating my mantra, but, boy, there are things happening that we did not expect to happen in any way, shape, manner, or form.
Rush Limbaugh
Everything happens for a reason, and everything has a story, and if you take time to realise what your dream is and what you really want in life… whether it’s sports, whether it’s in other fields, you have to realise that there’s always work to do.
Stephen Curry
What had the board been doing when they see these things happening. I mean, you can write a law that says you cannot provide incentives for the openings of accounts, but I think it gets to be a deeper issue of the value structure of any organization and the value of its leaders.
John Kasich
Nothing happens without personal transformation.
W. Edwards Deming
Nothing happens to any man which he is not formed by nature to bear. The same things happen to another, and either because he does not see that they have happened or because he would show a great spirit he is firm and remains unharmed. It is a shame then that ignorance and conceit should be stronger than wisdom.
Marcus Aurelius
Sad things happen. They do. But we don’t need to live sad forever.
Mattie Stepanek
I think everything happens as it’s supposed to. I don’t want to force anything. I want it to be so authentic that it’s seamless.
Dwyane Wade
Something happens to people around fame and power and money – it can bring out the worst and best in people; it’s a monster you have to tame.
Lisa Marie Presley
Zen is a study. It’s a discipline. It involves the active use of will to make things happen or not happen. These are the secrets of power.
Frederick Lenz
All things happen by virtue of necessity.
If you have a lot of money, you know that you can make almost anything happen, but with a smaller budget you don’t have a lot of time or too many resources, so you have to conceive things in a very simple manner and make them happen fast.
Rob Zombie
Human creativity is unlimited. It is the capacity of humans to make things happen which didn’t happen before. Creativity provides the key to solving our social and economic problems.
Muhammad Yunus
For seven years, I made films in the cinema verite tradition – photographing what was happening without manipulating it. Then I realised I wanted to make things happen for myself, through feature films.
Mira Nair
There is a time to let things happen and a time to make things happen.
Hugh Prather
Business is like a wheel barrow. Nothing happens until you start pushing.
Robert Kiyosaki
I am not a pacifist, however I do believe that the U.S. tends to resort to force too quickly. I am not referring only to the current administration; the same thing happened in the Balkans, and on other occasions.
Oscar Arias
Life’s fairly excruciating. Painful things happen. Every now and then, you drag yourself out of the stream and stand on the bank gasping for air. I think that’s how I work.
Helen Garner
Kids cannot follow stories. They don’t know what the hell is going on in a cartoon. They like to see funny visual things happening.
John Kricfalusi
Nothing happens here in this building, in the House of Representatives, if there’s no demand from outside the Capitol.
Luis Gutierrez
We can sit and worry about what’s going to happen to us two weeks from now. I’d rather focus on the amazing things happening right in front of us.
Ellen DeGeneres
My job, when it comes to free agency, trades, is not to pick players, but support the personnel department and the coaching staff. We have to have the financial resources to make things happen and that’s my job.
Arthur Blank
Little things happen to us during the course of our lives when we were children that stay with us.
Judy Sheindlin
I work very hard, you know, but I don’t think that I’m working, because what I do pleases me so much. I write about certain things because certain things happen to me.
Mario Vargas Llosa
We were promised sufferings. They were part of the program. We were even told, ‘Blessed are they that mourn,’ and I accept it. I’ve got nothing that I hadn’t bargained for. Of course it is different when the thing happens to oneself, not to others, and in reality, not imagination.
C. S. Lewis
I’m from L.A. I’ve seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses.
LaVar Ball
I wasn’t expecting to be traded, so it definitely was a surprise to me. But things happen in this league so I just decided to take in stride and start a new journey in Milwaukee.
Michael Carter-Williams
Americans have a special horror of giving up control, of letting things happen in their own way without interference.
William S. Burroughs
The way I write, I need to tell the true story. I can’t just make a story up. So I have to let the things happen to me and allow myself to work through my thoughts.
Amazing things happen when you pull individual pieces of information together into larger linked datasets: meaning emerges, as you produce facts from figures.
Ben Goldacre
I’m a country boy. I hate New York. But that’s where things happen, so I use it as a base for stories, I know enough about it. But I have to keep going back there.
Mickey Spillane
Sweet things happen. They still do.
Dianne Wiest
Every season something happens so I programme that in; something will happen.
Usain Bolt
Bryan Habana likes to talk himself up before games and then nothing happens.
David Campese
Shakespeare said: “There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow.” Everything happens perfectly.
Frederick Lenz
Trying to force things only disturbs your goals. Forcing will not help. Everything happens in its right time.
Judith Orloff
An interesting thing happened in 1989, right as I was graduating: the stock market crashed and really changed the landscape of the art world in New York. It made the kind of work I was doing interesting to galleries that wouldn’t have normally been interested in it
Matthew Barney
My biggest weakness is patience, wanting to see things happen too quickly or get changes in place right away. Not having the patience to let things develop.
Paul Gleason
You are the center of your universe, and you can make anything happen.
Ashley Smith
Somewhat dramatic things happen, and you don’t even always notice them — that’s what life is.
Alexander Payne
There’s Catholic guilt about things, then there’s the guilt of being the youngest of 10, so when nice things happen to you, you’re not really allowed to enjoy them.
Jack White
The only way to fall in love is to allow yourself to be vulnerable.
The only way to dare to dream and making incredible things happen is to be vulnerable.
Bert McCracken
You need to be a person who makes things happen.
Jim Lovell
When you kind of don’t care, for some reason, that’s when things happen.
Justin Roiland
The weight of lies will bring you down, follow you to every town ’cause nothing happens here that doesn’t happen there.
Colleen Hoover
The best things happen when you’re not overthinking it.
Ben Zobrist
A person who has spoiled his stomach will criticize his meal saying that the food is bad; the same thing happens with people who are not satisfied with their lives
Leo Tolstoy
Why sunset is more colorful than sunrise? It’s an irony of life saying, ‘sometimes, good things happen in goodbyes.
Forward thinking companies that adapt positively to the sustainable business agenda will be at the forefront of resource productivity, reducing waste and of environmental reporting. They and their management teams make things happen ahead of their competitors
Michael Meacher
We accept that sometimes in difficult circumstances, difficult things happen.
Tony Abbott
Many people are starting to realize that they work a lot and that working on stuff they believe in (and making things happen) is much more satisfying then just getting a paycheck and waiting to get fired (or die).
Seth Godin
DO IT RIGHT, DO IT WRONG, BUT DO IT. Squeeze your eyes shut and jump. Because a wonderful thing happens then. Your focus shifts from yourself, your nervousness, and your imagined inadequacies to the task at hand.
Barbara Sher
I don’t go to the start line expecting to win. I go to the start believing this could be the day when incredible things happen
Ryan Hall
One researcher just determined that African and Indian elephants make each other sick. When a new animal or plant is introduced to a habitat bad things happen. The biggest danger to native wildlife is foreign wildlife.
Robert T. Bakker
It’s just like I get this identity crisis: my body doesn’t want to write, my mind doesn’t want to write. Nothing about me wants to write, but I force myself to sit there and try. Nothing happens.
Luke Temple
As if there could be true stories: things happen in one way, and we retell them in the opposite way.
Jean-Paul Sartre
I don’t really dig for answers from the producers and writers that much. I let things happen the way they’re going to happen.
Candice Patton
I don’t pray because it doesn’t work. Prayer doesn’t fix anything. Bad things happen anyway.
Nicholas Sparks
There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible.
Auberon Waugh
More live recording. I have missed the boat over my career by not doing every second or third CD live because things happen onstage that don’t happen in the studio.
Al Jarreau
Nothing happens for ages, and then all the changes come at once.
Sarah Dessen
We have bad things happen, but it’s not like Syria, which we ignore and pretend doesn’t happen. We’ve got it pretty good, no matter who the president is, to be honest.
Vince Staples
If a thing happens once, it can happen again. If any human being has ever realised perfection, we too can do so. If we cannot become perfect here and now, we never can in any state or heaven or condition we may imagine.
Swami Vivekananda
I do like low interest rates. I’m not making that a big secret. I think low interest rates are good. I like a dollar that’s not too strong. I mean, I’ve seen strong dollars. And frankly, other than the fact that it sounds good, lots of bad things happen with a strong dollar.
Donald Trump
In the final analysis, the questions of why bad things happen to good people transmutes itself into some very different questions, no longer asking why something happened, but asking how we will respond, what we intend to do now that it happened.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
We never choose anything at all. Things happen. Or not.
Haruki Murakami
Sometimes bad things happen when you try to do something good.
Diana Peterfreund
Wonderful things happen when you turn 50: you change perspective. You ask, ‘Who am I? What do I want to do with my life? What have I not done that I want to do?’
Andie MacDowell
I think making a movie or a record, the best things happen by accident – and those end up being the magic. Every time I’ve followed my gut it’s been better than when I’ve tried to do what I was supposed to do.
Zooey Deschanel
Either things happen for a reason, or they happen for no reason at all. Either one’s life is a thread in a glorious tapestry or humanity is just a hopelessly tangled knot.
Neal Shusterman
A lot of things happened in a lot of places. And to see how well it was handled in Atlanta. There are a lot of reasons for Atlanta being a special town in the Civil Rights era.
Ivan Allen, Jr.
Everything happens for the purpose of what you decide to do about it.
Robert Breault
In England, those qualities of playing it simple, being in the right position, reading the game, knowing the right moment to make things happen around you are not appreciated. Making a tackle, a run into the box – the spectacular things are more appreciated.
Xabi Alonso
I really want people to understand that nobody is perfect and that things happen in life beyond our control.
Lil’ Kim
Most good things happen with time; especially music, which needs time to breathe and to find its own way.
Greg Ginn
Nothing happens quite by chance. It’s a question of accretion of information and experience.
Jonas Salk
No matter how wild reality was obviously often being, it was an absolutely secure place, as a tone and intelligence, and a thing happening.
Robert Creeley
People who live in the now; those people make things happen.
Cesar Millan
You can’t make something happen with a horse, but you can fix things up and let it happen.
Buck Brannaman
I’ve gone through that with my mother and father and here I was in a similar situation. I’ve wronged her and I’ve wronged the family. Because when these things happen, it doesn’t just happen to you, it happens to the people around you and the family.
John Prescott
I have the feeling that there are things happening that are really very interesting things, if we can somehow find the key that makes them visible.
Robert Heinecken
You don’t stop living because bad things happen. You keep going.
Gina Neely
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
Leonardo da Vinci
I like to go into the studio and let things happen. I like to just let the session take on. I don’t want to have to clock in at nine and end at eight. That’s just not me, that’s not how my creativity flows.
Brooke Valentine
Sometimes things happen in life, and you kind of need a friend.
Caroline Wozniacki
I tell you these stories because these things happen to everyone. It’s not about being starched or polished or cute or polite. It’s about having ears that stick out, about breaking yet another glass. It’s about seeing something for the first time and making a million mistakes and not ever getting completely discouraged.
Maira Kalman
You know Kim Jong Un, the evil dictator of North Korea? Apparently, a guy in his inner circle used his ashtray while smoking and Kim Jong Un had him executed. I remember the same thing happened when a guy used Martha Stewart’s personal lemon zester.
David Letterman
If you want to make something happen in your life or career, well then you make and find the time. Simple as that.
Ashley Purdy
My mother believed he would be healed. She counted on God, and the worst thing happened. The impact of that error in theology, in thinking, impacted my life from the very beginning.
Philip Yancey
Business has the unique ability to make things happen fast and at scale.
Doug McMillon
Success is not a miracle. Nor is it a matter of luck. Everything happens for a reason, good or bad, positive or negative.
Brian Tracy
As Vice President one of the things I spend time on is the continuity of government; that’s the main reason I’m here is a back up for the President if anything happens to him.
Dick Cheney
You can’t always trust your emotions. You can’t always trust your feelings. And I’m not talking about pain but I’m talking about more about life issues where something happens to you or somebody says something to you or somebody said nothing to you and you’re waiting for them to say something to you.
Nick Vujicic
I’m not a legislator. I’ve never been a lobbyist. I’ve never worked a session before, but based on my conversations with leadership in the Senate and the House, I get the general sense that people want to work together to make things happen.
George P. Bush
In business as in life, sometimes bad things happen to good people, and sometimes good things happen to bad people. But over time, if you play long enough, everybody gets what he deserves – good and bad.
Jeffrey R. Immelt
If bad things happen to you as a kid, it’s hard for you to succeed as an adult.
Priscilla Chan
Though progress starts with the imagination, only work can make things happen. And work itself works best when fueled, again by the imagination.
Theodore Levitt
The only person who had any control was Jonathan Harris. His character was so flamboyant that he was able to make things happen. My character was fairly one-dimensional, so I had my relationship with Dr. Smith and with the family.
Mark Goddard
When theres no sense of possessiveness or ownership in the artistic process, great things happen.
Paul Budnitz
If something happens, you have to realize that you can’t just yell at people all the time.
Arthur Blank
I am very romantic about communism even still, but I know terrible things happened.
Lars von Trier
Sometimes really, really bad things happen to people, and there is no explanation and no reason whatsoever.
Sarah Dessen
I’m optimistic about our future as a party. It’s about winning. The Democratic Party, if I had to do one word: winning. We need to win elections, because one thing I’ve learned is that when Democrats win good things happen to a lot of folks, and when we don’t do so hot, we see a lot of chaos and carnage.
Thomas Perez
The political class can’t imagine a decentralized world where good things happen…without them. But in the real world, that’s exactly how good things happen, and how jobs are created. When government sets simple rules that everyone understands and then gets out of the way, free people create jobs.
John Stossel
You know, I’ve had blowups with my coach too. The same thing happens, it just wasn’t as evident back then because they didn’t have so many cameras and ways to see things happen.
Joe Montana
Relationships are everything. If you build great relationships you can make a lot of great things happen.
Michael G. Rubin
Some things happen without you putting an effort, while some others things do not happen despite we wanting it to happen.
Raj Thackeray
I really try to avoid, you know, rolling out the history. The people are so important to me, and what happens to them, how they react, how things happen to them, this is what is important. I feel that if I can tell THAT story well, then people will go and Google the rest and fill in what they need to know.
Ru Freeman
Bad things happen, but you can still live.
Joel Courtney
The best advice I have is keep writing, keep practicing, keep winning, losing and understanding the difference. Never stop learning, never stop pushing yourself. Then find yourself a team you can work well with and help make awesome things happen.
Rhianna Pratchett
It’s creating things that make enough money to create resources to generate new technologies to have those technologies to generate more resources so I can make more things happen.
Reggie Watts
I have to get out of bed every day to make something happen.
Mike Leigh
Everything happens for a reason, except possibly football.
(in Thief of Time)
Terry Pratchett
I had a very rough and tumultuous childhood. I often wish that I had the opportunity to make my own choices in life and choose my own path. But at the same time, I realize that things happen the way they’re supposed to.
Corey Feldman
…things happen that are out of your control.’ Kerrick gave him a tight smile. ‘You mean I’m not omnipotent?’ ‘You’re not even semi-potent.’ ‘Is that even a word?’ Kerrick asked. ‘He probably means you’re impotent,’ I offered.
Maria V. Snyder
As McLuhan says, everything happens at once.
John Cage
Messi’s like a PlayStation. He can take advantage of every mistake we make. He made the impossible possible. He has something exceptional. He has six or seven years in front of him, touchwood that nothing happens to him, and he can reach unbelievable levels.
Arsene Wenger
I think you can make good things happen if you look for them. Life is a very positive thing.
Chris Gethard
Really, the scheme is not going to win you a possession or even a game. You have to burn some calories and make some things happen.
Erik Spoelstra
Things happen in weird, serendipitous ways.
Jon M. Chu
You have a movie and it proves itself and then certain things happen.
Barry Levinson
Things happen in American politics in the political center. If the President will meet us in the center, there are things we can accomplish.
Mitch McConnell
All things happen for a purpose.
James Dashner
A great teacher once taught me that you’ve got to have faith that everything happens for the best. I have had many setbacks in my career and every setback has led me that much further into my truth.
Suze Orman
I think everything happens in time. There’s a time for everything. There’s a time to be in a group, and there’s a time to be solo.
Lauryn Hill
You can, I think, have a quiet and steady protagonist and not run the risk of terminal dullness as long as exciting things happen to them and around them, and crime is the ideal genre for making this come about.
Liz Williams
The main thing about improvising is listening so if something happens that wasn’t expected and you know your character, you know what has to happen in this scene, you can react to that in a way that’s honest and it might take you in a different direction to go to the same place.
Vince Vaughn
I don’t know what the future holds, but I know that God holds tomorrow, so it is exciting. Even when I have hard things happen, He loves me so big, so much. I come through it and I grow from it, because He has got me.
Barbara Mandrell
Believing that things happen too slowly or too quickly is an illusion. Timing is perfect.
Melody Beattie
That something happened to you is of no importance to anyone, not even to you. The important thing about you is what you choose to make happen – your values and choices. That which happened by accident – what family you were born into, in what country, and where you went to school – is totally unimportant.
Ayn Rand
I don’t think you should reprimand your child for everything you’re feeling because for them it’s as serious as when something happens in our day and we get upset about it.
Nia Long
The reader wants to see something happen between pages one and four hundred, and nothing happens if the characters don’t change.
Terry Brooks
I tell you this: There is no coincidence, and nothing happens “by accident.” Each event and adventure is called to your Self by your Self in order that you might create and experience Who You Really Are.
Neale Donald Walsch
It’s not life or death, the labyrinth. Suffering. Doing wrong and having wrong things happen to you.
John Green
I do like when you find a true personal relationship with any of the characters, you like to make that honest connection. And every once in a while, there’s that glimmer where you got that line in where something happens, where you get to really talk.
Jonathan Banks
Everything happens for a reason and a purpose, and it serves you.
Tony Robbins
And when you pray to God regularly, irregular things happen on a regular basis.
Mark Batterson
I keep telling these millennials it’s all about them to get into politics and start making things happen. They don’t care about whether or not someone is gay. They don’t care to see contraception taken away or want to even discuss it. They’re going forward, not backward.
Donna Brazile
Writing is something warm and dependable to snuggle up to when everything else is in flux. It’s a little secret that you carry with you in public – the knowledge that you alone have the ability to escape to a wonderland where you can make anything happen.
Judy Delton
I think things happen between people for a reason.
Nora Roberts
There’s a logic to dreams that doesn’t necessarily follow linear narrative. You don’t know why things happen, it’s your subconscious pushing you, to give you information.
Justin Theroux
Unless something happens that we can’t predict, I don’t think a lot will happen
Fred Trueman
People who meditate deeply find wonderful things happening in their life all the time.
Frederick Lenz
I have so many friends who just have big dreams, and they work their butts off every day to try to make these things happen, and so long as we keep that mindset and remember others, I think we’ll be good.
Jennette McCurdy
I was visiting my mother in Florida when the September 11, 2001 attacks happened. I was working on The Tale of Despereaux at that point. I had already gone into writing it with a great deal of trepidation and fear, and then this God-awful thing happens and it was really hard to even get back home to Minneapolis.
Kate DiCamillo
I figure the world is basically a machine. I don’t know who made it, if it was the Fates, or the gods, or the capital-G god or whatever. But it chugs along the way it’s supposed to most of the time. Sure, little pieces break off and stuff goes haywire once in a while, but mostly… things happen for a reason.
Rick Riordan
If you want to play a game, go to where it’s played and find a way to get in. Things happen when you get in the game.
Chris Matthews
Imagine people calling you to find out if you’re dead. I’ve led a real crazy life at times, and I’ve had many strange things happen to me, but that was one of the strangest.
Richard Pryor
To me, Hollywood seems a little bipolar. Things happen; things don’t happen. Someone’s in a movie; someone’s not in a movie. I’ve learned not to build my expectations.
Joel Edgerton
I love life, even when bad things happen to me. I can’t stop loving it. Every season of the year comes with a promise that something wonderful is going to happen to me someday.
Judith McNaught
Dark matter and dark energy are two things we measure in the universe that are making things happen, and we have no idea what the cause is.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
As you get older three things happen. The first is your memory goes, and I can’t remember the other two.

If you are nice, nice things happen to you.
Junior dos Santos
I really think everything happens for a reason.
Lily Collins
A player cannot rely only on his name to make a difference but also has to work hard and make things happen on the pitch.
Dani Alves
Every day it seems like something happens to assure me I’m in the right place, and that doing anything else would be wrong. I feel so incredibly blessed.
Lucas Grabeel
You’ve got to have a dream… if you don’t have any big dreams, nothing happens.
Ian Rush
Some guys lose their focus. They get caught up in the business deals or the endorsements, and they lose their focus. For me, it’s always about football. I’ve never lost sight of what’s making all these other things happen.
Peyton Manning
I havent had the whole famous thing happen to me yet, and I hope I never will. I like to sneak away in the corners and hide a lot.
Brenton Thwaites
Dreams come true, but then things happen that are beyond anything you could dream. To be in a movie and to be in the same room participating in a movie with Meryl Streep? Come on!
BeBe Winans
But if I’ve heard this saying once, I’ve heard it a thousand times- everything happens for a reason. And possibly it does. I just haven’t found the reason that this all happened yet.
Jerry Lawler
I definitely believe that you are drawn to certain things for inexplicable reasons, but in a very powerful way. I don’t know what it is exactly, but I know that things happen kind of miraculously sometimes, and so I’m willing to believe that there’s something pretty magical out there.
Rachel McAdams
My own way of thinking is very conservative, very linear and not particularly imaginative, but if I look for things in different places, sometimes things happen.
Christopher Walken
I just wanted to set a good example. I wanted to do things that I hadn’t done before. My whole thing was to just try to be professional. I think when you work hard, good things happen, so obviously, because we’re going to the Finals.
Allen Iverson
You better have an anchor in life. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Division I head football coach or Joe Schmo from Okemoh. Bad things happen. If you’re not anchored, you’re going to be washed away.
Dabo Swinney
Everything happens through relationships.
Arne Glimcher
The attention has to be on the Spirit. And that cannot be there unless and until something happens within.
Nirmala Srivastava
Things happen to us in unpredictable ways, but the effect that that has on the kind of people who we become actually is not only open to chance – we can influence it in pretty profound ways.
Clayton M. Christensen
Be very very still and allow every new experience to take place in your life without any resistance whatsoever. You do not have to do anything, you simply have to be and let things happen.
Eileen Caddy
The game is a game, and things happen, and you can’t always execute your plan as perfectly as you’d like to.
Tom Glavine
I never thought about heaven per se. I think when you’re dead, you’re dead. If anything happens after that, you just hope you don’t go to hell.
Helen Thomas
When you’re really having fun, you’re always doing it a little bit in a way that you’re not supposed to. That’s when great things happen.
Annet Mahendru
Hollywood is such a fickle place, and you really have to go day to day and with the flow. Things happen so quickly, for the good or the bad. But you also have to know that everything happens for a reason.
Lily Collins
In dream consciousness we make things happen by wishing them, because we are not only the observer of what we experience but also the creator.
Vilayat Inayat Khan
Power for men means the ability to make things happen … The female definition of power is the ability not to have to please.
Lois Gould
I’m definitely doing better. I never realized that I would get the support that I’ve gotten from everybody – from my fans, to people that I’ve idolized my whole life. So it’s overwhelming, it’s amazing and I believe that everything happens for a reason so I’m in a really good place right now.
Pia Toscano
Nothing happens except by the permissive or active Will of Allah.
Louis Farrakhan
Bad things happen, and you can only be so prepared.
Alexandra Petri
Nothing happens til something moves.
Albert Einstein
Our true friends are those who are with us when the good things happen. They cheer us on and are pleased by our triumphs.
Paulo Coelho
I do feel like I have a lot more confidence now. I can shot list the episode before I start, but then, as things happen on set, I know how to adjust so I can still execute the scene completely, and I still know how to make my days.
Shiri Appleby
I kept thinking, ‘Somebody has to make a food show that is actually educational and entertaining at the same time… a show that got down to the ‘why things happen.’ Plus, I hated my job – I didn’t think it was very worthwhile.
Alton Brown
If I’d have went on the ice when this thing happened, someone would have speared me or something. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment and pride. They had to do it; it was their moment.
Herb Brooks
Ive learned that everything happens for a reason, the yogi Krishnan told him. Every event has a why and all adversity teaches us a lesson… Never regret your past. Accept it as the teacher that it is.
Robin Sharma
Synchronicites . It’s been said that coincidences are God’s way of remaining anonymous. Synchronicities are a sign of divinity. You breathe in deeply and say: ‘I don’t want anything. I’m going to let things happen’
Lana Del Rey
People who really have Ki don’t feel it because everything happens naturally within them.
Christian Tissier
Almost certainly I will not tell her my intentions this evening or tonight. I will put it off. Why? Because words are actions and they make things happen. Once they are out you cannot put them back.
Hanif Kureishi
The duty of the artist is not to be calculating in any sense, so that he may be free himself of human emotions while carried by the universal forces of life. Only then does one not think about making art, or about styles, or directions. Something comes about, something happens.
Karel Appel
What opera isn’t violent? Two things happen, violence and love. And other than that, name something else. You can’t
Cab Calloway
Look, when do the really interesting things happen? Not when you’ve brushed your teeth and put on your pyjamas and are cozy in bed. They happen when you are cold and uncomfortable and hungry and don’t have a roof over your head for the night.
Ellen Potter
Vets do what doctors used to – diagnose the injury or the condition, patch it up as best they can and remind you that these things happen and that in life we are also in the midst of death.
Jane Smiley
The key is really just saying my brain isn’t big enough to figure out why everything happens. It would be like an ant trying to understand the internet.
Rick Warren
The NHL is a fast-paced game, things happen quick when you’ve been out of action for a while and it takes some time to catch up.
Carey Price
If you’re an honest person, you’ll make mistakes, but it’ll be okay. The most interesting things happen after making mistakes.
Kristen Stewart
The reason I love comics more than anything else is that the longest story will be just a few pages. With a novel, it takes so many pages to get to one thing happening.
Sergio Aragones
Things happen for a reason, and the only thing you can do is at night time get on your knees and ask God for forgiveness for anything that you did that you didn’t feel was right.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
I have had someone wonderful things happen to me during my career and lifetime. Of course, personally, the birth of my daughter is the highlight of my life.
Olivia Newton-John
On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.
Yehuda Berg
Things happen for a reason, and in their own time.
Idina Menzel
I love the outdoors and looking at snakes, squirrels, bugs – just going through the woods and being part of it. You can smell the different trees. And I listen. There’s so much you can learn by listening, by sitting and watching things happen.
Boo Weekley
The life in which nothing happens goes the fastest, because it has no landmarks.
Katharine Tynan
Bad things happen because we live in a world with evil.
Tarryn Fisher
You’ve got to love what you do to really make things happen.
Philip Green
A triathlon is on my bucket list. I started training a long time ago, and my life took a different turn: Things happen; work happens. I will definitely accomplish that at some point!
Kate Hudson
Interesting things happen in the dark . . . sometimes.
L. J. Smith
I believe everything happens under God’s plan anyway.
Rick James
If you saw me working with construction crews or graphic designers, you’d see how much I’m really hoping for them to bring something to the table and let God in the room and let things happen naturally.
Jack White
When we enter the spiritual realm we are always focused on those big, life altering miracles. Here is a truth that isn’t sold to us. Change is a long, gradual process. Yes, you can make things happen immediately, but quite often, amazing things are happening that you can’t see.
Ruben Papian
The Internet is the new public space. And because women are out in public, people don’t like that in much the same way that if you’re walking down the street you get harassed. I think the same kind of thing happens online, and I think that’s why a lot of women are hesitant to put their voice out there.
Jessica Valenti
If you live long enough, lots of nice things happen.
George Halas
If something happens to your son, your thoughts about not having him in your life is what your terror is. It’s not about his life.
Byron Katie
When you’re in the midst of writing, it’s a beautiful thing happening through you. Many people have said that it’s not you, it’s the soul of humankind and so on, I don’t know. But it has the same effect [as music]. It takes you out of your body and out of this planet.
T.C. Boyle
If you believe that you are bad and unacceptable, you are unable to look back at your past with pleasure or your future with hope. Only bad things happened to you in the past, and only bad things will happen to you in the future.
Dorothy Rowe
Some things you just can’t question. Like you can’t question why two plus two is four. So don’t question it, don’t try to look it up. I don’t know who made it, all I know is it was put in my head that two plus two is four. So certain things happen. Why does it rain? Why am I so sexy? I don’t know.
Shaquille O’Neal
You drift through life and let things happen to you, or go by design and say, ‘This is what I’m intended to do.’ The Bible is very clear that God has a purpose. But even if I know that purpose, I can’t fulfill it if I’m out of shape.
Rick Warren
Your ability to make things happen is what makes you different
Mo Abudu
Only business can build a low-carbon economy. Business is all about seeing ideas and growing them. Businesses have the resources, the people, the technical skills to make things happen – and they have the channels to market
Tom DeLay
Only in the present do things happen.
Jorge Luis Borges
There are tears. There’s laughter. There’s an unconscious thing happening between us as humans. There’s so much about the brain that we don’t understand. I believe everybody’s empathic.
Nelly Furtado
Even regular keepers miss stumping chances and miss catches. These things happen.
Yuzvendra Chahal
So unless we come together as a people and stop our foolish beefing among each other, sit down like intelligent men and women and settle the things that divide us from each other, then come together like a solid wall and we could make something happen.
Louis Farrakhan
Live deliberately. Decide: are you the kind of person things happen to, or the kind of person who makes things happen?
James A. Owen
I just think there’s something special about staying with your team for a long time and fighting through the ups and downs. Then, when good things happen the feeling is better because you fought through the downs.
Nikola Vucevic
Why should anything happen when everything has happened?
Julian Barnes
For some reason our lives were marked by summers. . . . Summer was the time when our lives joined completely, when we all had our birthdays, when really important things happened
Ann Brashares
I’ve come to some balance now and calmness. If anything happened to me and I got hit by a bus – I hope this doesn’t happen, but if something happened – my body of work is something I could rest on. I don’t feel, “Oh God, I have to hurry up . . .”
Sandra Cisneros
All interesting issues in natural history are questions of relative frequency, not single examples. Everything happens once amidst the richness of nature. But when an unanticipated phenomenon occurs again and again—finally turning into an expectation—then theories are overturned.
Stephen Jay Gould
There’s always a chance that I might not walk away from a racetrack. I don’t ever want to think about that, but I’m prepared if something happens. I hope that nothing ever does. That’s definitely a risk. My wife understands that. I’m definitely at peace with what God wants me to do. I have a lot of faith in that.
Justin Allgaier
What we call luck is the inner man externalized. We make things happen to us.
Robertson Davies
Always be patient. I also believe everything happens for a reason.
Tyler James Williams
Believe me: The day [Barack] Obama goes off, and he leaves, and goes out to the golf course for the rest of his life to play golf, when they raise interest rates, you’re going to see some very bad things happen, because the Fed is not doing their job. The Fed is being more political than Secretary [Hillary] Clinton.
Donald Trump
I wasn’t going to let things happen to me any more. I was going to make them happen.
Glenda Millard
Shooting should not be about delivering something I’ve prepared; it should be a live process of finding things out. When things happen that you haven’t planned, that’s when the film comes alive.
Stellan Skarsgard
Even when bad things happen you have to try to use those bad things in a positive manner and really just take the positive out of it.
Natalie du Toit
Plot is tremendously important to me: I can’t stand books where nothing happens, and I can’t imagine ever writing a novel without at least one murder.
Ned Beauman
Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment.
Elliott Erwitt
But we had a pretty diversified portfolio of businesses around the world and things tended to offset each other. But one or two years ago, we had a lot of things happening at the same time.
Jim Cantalupo
The best of life is life lived quietly, where nothing happens but our calm journey through the day, where change is imperceptible and the precious life is everything.
John McGahern
I believe that we have to lift the voice without fear and simply go forward, because in a lot of other occasions, we got tired, we have lowered the arms and simply let everything happen.
Alfonso Herrera
It’s odd, how those things happen to actors. A thing where you think, “I have no idea how to do this,” something will happen in your life comes up and you just get it. I don’t know how you get it, but actors are pretty extraordinary, in that regard. I think it’s fear that happens.
Michael Keaton
Nothing happens in the ‘real’ world unless it first happens in the images in our heads
Gloria E. AnzaldГєa
I think for me, what I’m doing on set is I’m watching things happen as an audience member and trying to just look at, what’s the image we’re photographing, how will that advance the story and what will the next image be.
Christopher Nolan
Special things happen when you center people who haven’t been centered before.
Nahnatchka Khan
I’ve had a lot of hilarious things happen to me.
Emily Atack
I think there’s so many things happening, whether it’s gender inequality or immigration, there’s just so many issues happening around the world where not doing anything makes you guilty.
Lilly Singh
When bad things happen, part of us might go away. It’s a survival technique. You can’t stand to be around when there’s so much grief or pain in your life so part of you goes away. Shamans call this soul loss.
Robert Moss
I think everything happens for a reason, so there is no such thing as fail.
Mary-Kate Olsen
I don’t want to sit around and hope good things happen. I want to make them happen.
Drew Barrymore
I think my general disposition on life is finding what’s funny about it. When something happens, the first thing in my mind is, “What’s funny about it?”
Will Smith
I am not very good at planning things, actually, but I believe that things happen when they need to and when they have to.
Marion Cotillard
I’ve played basketball all of my life, and I’ve had things happen on the court that you eventually have to move on from. It’s part of some of the obstacles that you meet in trying to reach your pinnacle.
Scottie Pippen
The only way things will happen is if people get over the notion that they must see immediate success. If they get over that notion and persist, then they will see things happen before they even realize it.
Howard Zinn
Fun things happen when you earn dollars, live on pesos, and compensate in rupees.
Tim Ferriss
When you have guys who know how to play, things happen quicker.
Nikola Vucevic
Things happen in the way they usually should. I’m a pretty fatalistic person.
Emily Blunt
Without publicity a terrible thing happens: nothing.
P. T. Barnum
I think that the “what if” game is what you guys get to do. I don’t have to do that. I hate the “what if” game. I’m such a believer in everything happening the way it’s supposed to happen.
Bruce Willis
Everyone has their own struggles, but I never question the road I’m on. I’m a firm believer in the notion that “everything happens for a reason,” so even if sometimes you think you’re facing a problem, really it’s just a blessing in disguise.
Nikki Yanofsky
You have to be OK with your own fears. If you’re an honest person, you’ll make mistakes, but that’s when the most interesting things happen.
Kristen Stewart
I consciously focus on my blessings and remember what has gotten me through my past struggles: my faith and the belief that everything happens for a reason.
Trista Sutter
One day passes and another day comes along, and everything happens the same. But basically, we are so afraid of the brilliance coming at us, and the sharp experience of our life, that we can’t even focus our eyes.
Chogyam Trungpa
Things happen to help you get rid of the parts of yourself that aren’t you; to help you be more real and more yourself, not like everyone else; to help you lead a more authentic life; and ultimately to help you discover who you really are.
Mira Kirshenbaum
There is no erratic power or action or motion in creatures but they are governed by God’s secret plan in such a way that nothing happens except what is knowingly and willingly decreed by Him.
John Calvin
I still have night terrors about things happening to my son. The worst things cross your mind when you care so much. I keep them at bay as best I can, and it’s a struggle for me not to just do everything for him.
Corey Taylor
You never can tell when a bad thing might make a good thing happen. I realized that good and bad were always there and always mixed up together in a tangle.
Ingrid Law
I think a lot of nice things happen when you’re driving, or when you’re on a plane, or whatever. There’s a certain freedom that comes along with motion.
Andrew Dost
I don’t believe in having regrets. I believe everything happens for a reason even when we don’t want it to happen. Every high and every low moment has a lesson waiting for you to find it.
Lizzie Velasquez
It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.
John Wooden
I think paranormal experiences are very personal, again, if they are that. Yes, sometimes I’ve felt that some things I would personally believe enough for me to take action on it… like, you know, I felt something happen in a hotel once that made me never stay there again.
Andrea Corr
To me, the whole idea of fame and I think it can be a real test of somebody, of who they are. You know, ’cause some strange things happen. I’ve seen some peculiar things as far as a person just living their life.
Tobey Maguire
I don’t believe things happen in vain. I believe they happen for a reason.
Tracey Gold
Good things happen when you narrow your focus.
Al Ries
Bad things happen when problems are protected by a force field of tediousness.
Ben Goldacre
When you make giving a priority, something happens inside of you. Especially when it’s financially challenging to do so. It’s like you loosen your grip on a value system whose motto says, “Money is the key to life and happiness and safety.”
Andy Stanley
This is the power of images, the ambiguity. You are never completely sure of anything. With written language, it’s more concrete. You have to establish some facts, but in movies, you see things happening, and the exact meaning behind the images is more ambiguous.
Albert Serra
Things happen in baseball, even if, in theory, it’s something you don’t do. Stats are a tool, but it doesn’t mean that’s how a game is being played at that moment. There’s more than one way to win a game, or have a winning team.
Jon Miller
You have a valid complaint, and I do recognize it … but you are reading into things a little bit. Just the same, I will do my best to make horrible things happen to a bunch of white people before something else so graphic hits a minority character.
Robert Kirkman
We want to see Israel withdraw from our territory. But we don’t want to be accountable vis-a-vis Israel on the security basis, because we don’t see, in the absence of a peace agreement, that Lebanon can really be accountable to Israel if anything happens.
Rafik Hariri
Nothing is more bothersome to me than retiring. Weird things happen when you disengage; first you get negative, then you start telling people about your latest surgeries, and eventually you lose touch. I want to stay in touch.
Charles R. Swindoll
Real life is not quite as it is in stories. In the old tales, bad things happen, and when the tale has unfolded and come to its triumphant conclusion, it is as if the bad things had never been. Life is not as simple as that, not quite.
Juliet Marillier
Everyone has a different life story. Things happen rapidly for someone, and things move slowly for others.
Barun Sobti
In dream consciousness… we make things happen by wishing them, because we are not only the observer of what we experience but also the creator.
Pir Vilayat Khan
I knew my time would come I just had to stay focused and disciplined and if you work hard good things happen. I am right where I am supposed to be.
Chris Algieri
I want to make it so that so many things happen… that you didn’t expect would happen in this series, that you realize that you have to read every one of them.
Kevin J. Anderson
We’re too complacent. We let things happen to us. And you don’t have to let things happen to you. You can affect change.
Reed Morano
So I try not to look too far into the future because I think that everything happens and will happen for a reason.
Carrot Top
A director’s job is to make something happen and it doesn’t happen by itself. So you wheedle, you cajole, you flatter people, you tell them what needs to be done. And if you don’t bring a passion and an intensity to it, you shouldn’t be doing it.
James Cameron
It’s a little bit about how I felt about Hail, Caesar! and now Star Wars. I could not have predicted those things happening to me. But I’m just happy they come along.
Alden Ehrenreich
There were a lot of things happen in the mid-’80’s that all of a sudden made it possible to do a lot of very quick interactive music.
Tod Machover
Everything that can happen, does. That’s quantum mechanics. But this does not mean everything happens. The rest of physics is about describing what can happen and what can’t.
Antony Garrett Lisi
I don’t think I’m romantic at all. I have a lot of faith in the right thing happening. I don’t really hope for a lot of particulars, I just have faith that the right thing will happen most of the time.
Juliana Hatfield
After Luis Suarez of Uruguay bit an Italian opponent in the shoulder, two things happened. Suarez was thrown out of the rest of the tournament, and the player he bit turned Uruguayan.
Peter Sagal
I don’t believe in fate,” he said carefully, “but… I do believe everything happens for a reason. That there is some plan, some meaning to this darkness we live in.
Julie Kagawa
Even in WWE, you believe it when it happens. Because anything can happen in the WWE at the last minute. Things happen, things change, and decisions are made.
Jinder Mahal
Many strange things happen in this world
Johanna Spyri
When you think small and up the middle, good things happen.
Alex Rodriguez
When something happens, the only thing in your power is your attitude toward it. It is not the things that disturb us, but our interpretation of their significance. Things and people are not what we wish them to be nor are they what they seem to be. They are what they are.
The whole universe is based on rhythms. Everything happens in circles, in spirals.
John Hartford
Things happen, you have bad shooting days, the defense kind of figures you out.
Caris LeVert
You’d be surprised how fast things happen when the right man comes along.
Danielle Steel
But it is only in epic tragedies that gloom is unrelieved. In real life tragedy and comedy are so intermingled that when one is most wretched ridiculous things happen to make one laugh in spite of oneself.
Georgette Heyer
There is only one thing I want. I would like to be seriously ill, and to hear nothing more about him for at least a week. Why doesn’t something happen to me? Why do I have to go through all this? If only I had never set eyes on him!
Eva Braun
I think you know that when an American stays away from New York too long something happens to him. Perhaps he becomes a little provincial, a little dead and afraid.
Sherwood Anderson
In football, sometimes things happen that are outside of your control, leading the club to make decisions.
Edinson Cavani
I try not to get too low. I fight adversity as hard as I can fight it, not to get too low. When good things happen, I don’t really embrace it. I just say it’s a lucky day.
Rick Pitino
If you say to people that there’s less violence today than in the past, they would be stunned to hear that. But it’s the truth, even though we have awful things happening in Syria or Sudan.
Bill Gates
Although I think I’m relatively happy as a person, I think there’s something unhappy at the root of all my writing. I’d say optimistic but unhappy. Nothing that’s particularly original, other than that we’re going to live and die, and terrible things happen.
Ethan Canin
Bad things happen when good people pretend nothing is wrong.
Corey Taylor
Without that poise and balance and gentle humor and caring sense, nothing happens at all. It’s just egotism and vanity and jealousy and possessiveness.
Frederick Lenz

Susan Sarandon
The only way I could finish a book and get a plot was just to keep making it longer until something happens.
Nelson Algren
All things happen in their proper time. Everything in life happens in the time allocated for it. Don’t waste energy worrying about end results. Worrying only distracts you from living day to day and enjoying life!
James Van Praagh
I don’t believe in luck. I believe everything happens for a reason.
There must be a reason that these bad things happen to me. I must be dysfunctional. So why would my dad leave? Why would he kill himself? Why would I be violated? And when you’re 6-years-old, you can’t comprehend that. But as you get much older in life, you begin to think what’s wrong with me?
Paula White
Twitter fascinates me because it’s real. It feels kind of unreal, but it makes very real things happen.
Amanda Palmer
Conservation destroys the present. If we are only busy preserving the past, we are not living in the present and unable to look forward. I am against conservation. We should let young people move forward, whether we agree with them or not. We should let new things happen.

I think that in the process of writing, all kinds of unexpected things happen that shift the poet away from his plan and that these accidents are really what we mean when we talk about poetry.
John Ashbery
If they took the idea that they could escape poverty through education, I think it would make a more basic and long-lasting change in the way things happen. What we need are positive, realistic goals and the willingness to work. Hard work and practical goals.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

T.C. Boyle
What if we just acted like everything was easy?
Mary Anne Radmacher
Many things happen that we don’t know the significance of until a little bit later.
David Lynch

Uncertainty is where things happen. It is where the opportunities – for success, for happiness, for really living – are waiting.
Oliver Burkeman
That’s the way it goes. Some things happen and some things don’t. This one is obviously just wasn’t meant to be. Except deep down… I still believe it was.
Sophie Kinsella
You can make anything happen if you put your mind to it.
Lori Greiner

Allen Iverson
Things happen in everyday life that make you consider living your life just every other day.
Robert Breault
Judas betrayed Jesus. Lady Red betrayed John Dillinger. Those things happen.

Jeet Aulakh
When you’re watching, I find two things happen. You either watch a film and it’s really good and then you think, “Why can’t I do that?” Or you watch a film and it’s not good, and you think, “Why am I doing this?” So either way, it feels like being at work.
Steven Knight
I have lived with my husband more than I have with my parents… I live beside him, and know his worries, his hopes, and his dreams for his nation. We believe that things happen by design, not in an arbitrary way. And we believe it is our duty to make things happen.
Moza bint Nasser
Things happen in your life, and then you can write something else instead of the same three topics – like, how many times can we write about the clubs?
Missy Elliott
I don’t have time to celebrate accomplishments. When good things happen, it’s great, and obviously I get excited inside. But soon I gotta do something else; I gotta keep doing more stuff. The whole world will never be familiar, so I’m constantly going to be on a quest to get familiar.
Clinton Sparks
In football, things happen so quickly.
Kieran Trippier
What I believe when it comes to big things in life, there are no accidents. Everything happens for a reason. You are here for a reason – and it’s not to fail and die.
Ransom Riggs
Very often I say to myself: I would like to make a photo where nothing happens. But in order to eliminate, there has to be something to begin with. For nothing to happen, something has to happen first.
Sarah Moon
We don’t want to make a mistake. Would you rather make the mistake and err on the side of caution or wait until something happens and then answer to the American people, why you didn’t vet these people properly?
Ted Yoho
Passion and persistence are what matter. Dreams are achievable and you can make your fantasy come true, but there are no shortcuts. Nothing happens without hard work.

Isak Dinesen
You have citizens who don’t understand how government works and they’re kind of soured on it. All they do is criticize. They have no idea that they can make things happen.
Sandra Day O’Connor
Within childhood behaviors, there are known behaviors; there’s teasing and there’s name-calling, and different kinds of things happen as kids start to socialize. And then there’s serious bullying, and then there’s actual aggression and behavioral problems. But you can’t put it all under the tent of bullying.
Julianne Moore
God isn’t about making good things happen to you, or bad things happen to you. He’s all about you making choices–exercising the gift of free will. God wants you to have good things and a good life, but He won’t gift wrap them for you. You have to choose the actions that lead you to that life.
Jim Butcher
When I don’t have any ideas, I pick up fabric and start working with it and something happens.
Geoffrey Beene
Bad things happen sometimes.

Ruth Stout
Things happen once only and are never repeated, never return. Except in memory.
Damon Galgut
When we love, it is not necessary to understand what is happening outside, because everything happens inside us instead.
Paulo Coelho
I think now that I’m in the autumn of my life, and I’m getting a chance of having an overview and looking at the shape of how things happen, when things happen, why things happen, I think it was fitting that I spent most of my early career doing mask work, because I just don’t think I was that comfortable in my own skin.
Ron Perlman

Robert Englund
It a dude and a girl, and the house and wooo scary things happen and then they kill everything.
Ilona Andrews
I would say a magical thing happened on when the big 40th birthday came. I felt like a light kind of just went off, and maybe that’s because I felt like at 40 I had the right to say and be who I wanted to be, say what I wanted to say, and accept what I didn’t want to accept.
Halle Berry
On a sunny Tuesday – for it seems so many awful things happen on a Tuesday – six astronauts and one schoolteacher attempted to pierce the sky. Instead they touched the stars.

Agapi Stassinopoulos
A lot of people who went to SC didn’t play ball – people who do films, lawyers and doctors, people who do things in real estate and business. There’s a lot of people that make things happen out here.

When people have success, one of two things happen. They either get really satisfied and want to keep thinking about it and talking about what they did, or the success becomes a little addictive, and it makes them want to keep having more.
Nick Saban
A very odd thing happened to my career when I got The Wire. My career was pretty much a steady climb; I didn’t really flatline much. When I did The Wire, that’s when I thought all the doors would open, but that’s when things flatlined. I had a really hard time just getting seen for film, which was the next step.
Lance Reddick
You look at anything I’ve been a part of, it’s when the laboring, the fatigue, when some of those things happen, that’s what shows what you’re going to be.
Jerry Jones
When you’re happy at home, you can make a lot of things happen.

Valerie Jarrett
Baseball is a game where you are always waiting, and then when something happens it’s like turning a kaleidoscope when you were a kid.

Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned
Heir to your own karma doesn’t mean ‘You get what you deserve.’ I think it means ‘You get what you get.’ Bad things happen to good people. My happiness depending on my action means, to me, that it depends on my action of choosing compassion–for myself as well as for everyone else–rather than contention. [p.61]
Sylvia Boorstein
Nothing happens to man without the permission of God.
Bad things happen to good people all the time. It sucks. It’s not fair but then much of life isn’t fair. It’s how you live that matters. It’s how you deal with the bumps in the road.
Maya Banks
When you don’t have any worries, it is better, but things happen in football, and we know we must try to resolve as soon as we can.

I think there are good men and women in all decades. We’ve grown cynical. And look at what we do to all our heroes: Churchill, FDR, Kennedy, they all had affairs. But heroic things happen every day.
Kevin Costner
The cast you are working with is important because it involves a give-and-take relationship. For me, when you have strong performers, multiple things happen, the magic of creation happens. That’s where you build the craft.
Neeraj Kabi
I can’t sing half as well as Claudia Lennear. Hats off to her, but somehow, things happened for me.

Mary Harron
Things happen to people by accident.
Frances Hodgson Burnett
Any kid that feels like they don’t have any kind of future, whether they’re on a street corner in Harlem or in a little town in Kansas where nothing happens, it’s all out there for them. They can do whatever they dream or wish or see on television, or read about in the papers.
James Brolin
Nothing is going to happen to me, or you, for that matter. Anything can happen, though. Anything can happen. But most always, just normal things happen, and people have happy lives.
