Comedy can be more difficult than drama. It requires more attention to timing.

David Alan Basche
For as long as I could remember, the person in E23 pasted the same Halloween decoration, a witch with a giant wart on her crone’s nose, but whenever kids rang, the tenant wouldn’t answer.

A.C. Grayling
I’ve always felt that there’s a lot of similarity between doing a comedy and doing a scary movie because jokes and scares are all about timing. If you give the punch line too early or too late, the joke falls flat. And it’s the same with a scare.

Jeremy Grantham
Think about the deflections. The offense can’t score every play. They’re just trying to get a good shot. If I can deflect a pass, even if it doesn’t cause a turnover, it will throw their timing off half-a-second. That half-a-second might mess up their shot.

My advice always is to start very simple and master your timing and master the most simple beats that you can, and you just keep elevating from that.

Joey Jordison

I think we judge talent wrong. What do we see as talent? I think I have made the same mistake myself. We judge talent by people’s ability to strike a cricket ball. The sweetness, the timing. That’s the only thing we see as talent. Things like determination, courage, discipline, temperament, these are also talent.

Cate Blanchett
Five women working together is never going to be easy. It’s a lot. But God is so incredible, in terms of the timing, because we are all married with kids, in our late 30s and 40s. It’s a different stage in our lives. It’s not about who is going to be the one that’s going to pop.

Darren Boyd
Everybody has a high point and a lot goes into that: timing, situation, general consciousness.

Timing is a very important part of being a father. You should never show your kids things before they’re ready. Especially with movies.

Demaryius Thomas
The short story that eventually grew into Constellation was the first fiction set in Russia that I’d ever written, and that was right around the time I was giving up on a doomed, never-to-be-seen first novel.

The Sarah Palin choice both its timing and the fact that it was her, it was really an audacious strategic move by the McCain campaign to try to change the trajectory of the 2008 presidential race and the initial launch was very successful.

Nicole Holofcener
Good luck and good timing are the same thing.

I just devoured all of his [Buster Keaton’s] films because his sense of comic timing was amazing. He’s the closest a human being has ever come to a cartoon character. And I was just amazed at his sense of character and timing, the humor. It’s all just so…sophisticated, even when you watch it today.
John Lasseter
I DECLARE that God has a great plan for my life. He is directing my steps. And even though I may not always understand how, I know my situation is not a surprise to God. He will work out every detail to my advantage. In His perfect timing, everything will turn out right. This is my declaration.

Catherynne M. Valente

Theodore Bikel
The past, the future: – two eternities!
Thomas Moore

Jake Hager
The weatherman is always right. It’s just his timing that’s off.

Peter McWilliams
Offense is about rhythm and timing, and you’re not going to always have that every game.
Booger McFarland
It is necessary for the birthing process to begin to move in its own organic time. It is necessary that the artist have this sense of timing, that he or she respect… periods of receptivity as part of the mystery of creativity and creation.
Rollo May
Therefore: In dwelling, choose modest quarters, in thinking, value stillness, in dealing with others, be kind, in choosing words, be sincere, in leading, be just, in working, be competent, in acting, choose the correct timing. Follow these words and there will be no error.
Comedy’s all math, figuring out the timing.

Warren Spahn
Timing is everything in life and in golf.
Arnold Palmer
Timing was everything when it came to being a woman—the moment you entered the world could seal your fate.
J. Courtney Sullivan
I am a believer in nutrient timing and supplementation, through 8Zone. I love eggs, apples, wild fish, leafy greens, brown rice, pasta, oatmeal, home grown Washington Potatoes, and cooking with coconut and olive oils.
Apolo Ohno
You have to realize in this life and in your life that timing is everything.
Paul Orndorff
Do you know what investing for the long run but listening to market news everyday is like? It’s like a man walking up a big hill with a yo-yo and keeping his eyes fixed on the yo-yo instead of the hill.
Alan Abelson
There’s potential for it being soon. The reality is that there are only ‘X’ positions available, so it’s a matter of luck or timing. They are people positions, and Kim is incredibly qualified.
Jamie McCourt
Use Time. Make it easy. Get your money to work for you. The key is to get in the market, as it is not about timing the market, but time in the market that matters.
Ann Wilson
I think you’re born with a comedy gene, and you can’t teach timing, and you can’t teach satire, pathos.
Brad Garrett
As you progress high school, college into the league, you can tell the difference between quarterbacks with their timing and the way the ball comes out of their hand.
Kenny Stills
Success is always a matter of some luck and timing.
Kathleen Kennedy
I used my Karate footwork to control the distance, and I use is as a penetration drill that I do, this is my speciality, the way I penetrate on people, the explosiveness and the timing. It all started with Kyokoshin and Sports Karate.
Georges St-Pierre
War has been waged against us by stealth and deceit and murder. This nation is peaceful, but fierce when stirred to anger. This conflict was begun on the timing and terms of others. It will end in a way, and at an hour, of our choosing.
George W. Bush
I haven’t invented anything earth-shattering. If I could be said to have one noteworthy ability compared with the average person, it’s that I have a keen interest in reading the direction and timing of paradigm shifts.
Masayoshi Son
What is history but a fable agreed upon?
Napoleon Bonaparte
What I will say though is that I’ve got quite a big back, from doing pull-ups, and that will make your punches more solid. But in terms of the hardness of your punch, it’s about timing and speed.
Carl Froch
As usual, my timing is bizarrely good.
Jamie Oliver
Years, following years, steal something every day; At last they steal us from ourselves away.
Amy Sherman-Palladino is very funny. She’s got just natural timing and comedic instinct. And she writes in a comedic rhythm.
Alex Borstein
On marriage to Jonny Lee Miller: It comes down to timing. I think he’s the greatest husband a girl could ask for. I’ll always love him, we were simply too young.
Angelina Jolie
Timing is everything for me, especially.
When I think of all the things that tossed my journey off its track, I realize something incredibly important: Life’s setbacks only changed my path and the timing of my arrival. They never changed my destination.
John Foley
Fate carries its own clock.
Pearl Bailey
Strangely, although they may seem worlds apart, boxing and tennis have a certain kinship. Two individuals head-to-head, probing for weakness and attacking it. Footwork, timing and stamina are essential. Just you and your opponent until one of you is beaten. There’s no brain damage in tennis – although sometimes I wonder.
Bud Collins
Vegas has the Whitman’s Sampler of audiences. They come from all different places, so you have to do some crowd psychology. You have to find the heartbeat of the room. It doesn’t shift my jokes, but it shifts my timing and my attention.
Hal Sparks
Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is “timing” it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.
Fulton J. Sheen
I met Donald Trump in ’85. I ran into him several times throughout the years. We knew we had this connection, but it wasn’t appropriate timing. So we’d spend a lot of time on the telephone. By ’88, I knew I truly loved this guy.
Marla Maples
Everything, in the end, comes down to timing. One second, one minute, one hour, could make all the difference. So much hanging on just these things, tiny increments that together build a life. Like words build a story, and what had Ted said? One word can change the entire world.
Sarah Dessen
The value of actions lies in their timing.
Having a real public outlet is how you imprint something for yourself. It’s just a matter of timing. It’s like you’ve marked your territory.
Lily Tomlin
Life is learning how to deal with traffic. It requires patience, a good sense of timing, and sometimes not giving in to the traffic but reshaping your life.
Frederick Lenz
Culturally, I think ‘All in the Family’ was universal enough to have good timing at any time.
Norman Lear
Timing is irrelevant when it comes to desire.
Marjorie Liu
Network’s rating dependent. A show might not stick. A lot’s timing. Like, my Bradley Cooper in ‘Kitchen Confidential’ didn’t always work. Cable supports young shows. TV Land, which you can find on Hulu, Amazon, iTunes, wanted ‘Younger.’ They came to me.
Darren Star
Always assume that your opponent is going to be bigger, stronger and faster than you; so that you learn to rely on technique, timing and leverage rather than brute strength
Helio Gracie
No matter what your laundry list of requirements in choosing a mate, there has to be an element of good luck and good fortune and good timing.
Patty Duke
I believe I’m better than everybody when it comes to footwork, timing, reflexes, defense, you name it.
Mikey Garcia
The question of Israeli apartheid was anathema a decade ago. Now it’s even talked about by top Israeli officials, who say – they differ on the timing: We say it’s already there; they say that if we don’t do something different, we’re going to face apartheid.
Phyllis Bennis
On the tennis court, one needs a cool temperament, tremendous ball sense, reflexes, speed, hand-eye co-ordination, power, timing and peak physical fitness. Off the court, the player and support team need skills in planning, execution, travel, an ability to raise funds when needed, and several other talents.
Sania Mirza
So much in life came down to timing.
Kate Morton
Just because something isn’t happening for you right now, doesn’t mean it won’t happen. God’s timing is perfect.
Nicky Gumbel
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a raindance.
Texas Bix Bender
Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.
Dion Boucicault
I think my own bias is that there may be something wrong with the timing and the connectivity between regions rather than pointing to one particular spot in the brain.
Gerald Fischbach
I’ll tell something, a lot of times I’d listen to Charlie and some of the interviews he had and he said, ‘Well, yeah, I was a garbage goal collector.’ But he knew the timing. I knew where he was.
Marcel Dionne
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.
Octavia Butler
Different techniques are now being used in futsal and handball. It’s about timing more than anything else. Those little intricacies are slowly being picked up in the women’s game – and it’s kind of going unnoticed.
Karen Bardsley
I’m not turning my back on classical theater. It’s all about opportunities and timing a lot of the time when things come up.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw
It took me a good eight to ten years to really formulate what I was doing onstage and start to get really personal with comedy. I always really had timing naturally, it was just about trying to figure out how that timing was going to work onstage.
Sebastian Maniscalco
Let’s respect the dignity of women to make their own decisions about the size and timing of their families.
Nancy Pelosi
God doesn’t make mistakes and timing unfolds as it should.
Ashley Judd
Everybody I know who is funny, it’s in them. You can teach timing, or some people are able to tell a joke, though I don’t like to tell jokes. But I think you have to be born with a sense of humor and a sense of timing.
Carol Burnett
A lot of amazing comedians that I’ve worked with just really follow their instincts and you can’t really teach someone comedic timing. And you just kind of have it.
Chelsea Handler
The European single currency is bound to fail, economically, politically and indeed socially, though the timing, occasion and full consequences are all necessarily still unclear.
Margaret Thatcher
Gardener’s , like everyone else, live second by second and minute by minute. What we see at one particular moment is then and there before us. But there is a second way of seeing. Seeing with the eye of memory, not the eye of our anatomy, calls up days and seasons past and years gone by.
Allen Lacy
Learn to trust His timing. Don’t get in a hurry; don’t grow impatient; don’t try to force doors open. Don’t try to make things happen in your own strength. Let God do it His way.
Joel Osteen
I spend the rest of the afternoon trying to explain to Zoe one of the very saddest notions in love and life: sometimes the timing is wrong–and sometimes you realize the heart of the matter way to late in the game.
Emily Giffin
I think marriage is all about timing.
Cate Blanchett
The timing of death, like the ending of a story, gives a changed meaning to what preceded it.
Mary Catherine Bateson
Distance is everything, in a fight. When you lose your distance, you lose your timing.
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
There is no present or future-only the past, happening over and over again-now.
Eugene O’Neill
My timing in life has been extraordinary. I’ve ridden the crest of the wave of the women’s movement.
Susan Sullivan
I have written to Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, asking him to consider ‘staggered office timings’ for government offices, which will help in decongesting road traffic during peak hours.
Veerappa Moily
You must study their deliveries, their use of their bodies, their timing, and their use of audio and vocal effects.
Franklyn Ajaye
I have to perform every time I’m in the car, and show that I’m capable, and I need a little bit of timing and luck to come together.
Susie Wolff
I think that timing is everything. At first, it was too soon. And then, the time was right, but I was busy with other things, and the cast was busy with other things. By the time we sat down to work on the movie, enough time had passed that suddenly a different story emerged.
Mitchell Hurwitz
For myself, personally, I am never really aware of timing or anything because I am passionate about what I do, so I have found that if you really love what you do, then time flies.
Colm Wilkinson
I think a lot of people try to time the market when it comes to buying or selling a property or investing in real estate, but the real secret to real estate is not timing the market, but time in the market.
Scott McGillivray
I think timing is everything.
Tionne Watkins
My reads, operation with the offense, timing with the receivers, routes, sitting in the pocket, trusting my line – everything is always a work in progress.
Deshaun Watson
Criticism at the wrong time, even if it’s legitimate criticism, can be seriously damaging and make the writer lose faith in what he’s doing. It’s the timing that’s all-important.
Donna Tartt
The only thing I don’t think people don’t understand about good leaders is that they’re both good and lucky. A lot of it is timing.
Marshall Goldsmith
Even as a coach, sometimes you forget the little intricacies of the offense, the details of the routes, the timing of the footwork, and the timing of the offensive tackles with the different sets that they have.
Matt Nagy
If I ran into a 19-year-old version of myself, I’d just tell her to live, full out. I might also tell her to go ahead and have a few babies and not worry about the timing of it.
Queen Latifah
Striking isn’t just about kicking and punching. It’s far more complex than that. It’s also about timing and range.
Demian Maia
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.
Octavia E. Butler
You know, if you use instrument, why, you have to stay on perfect time – timing. And if you do a cappella – I’m so bad, just wonder, you know, maybe I’ll sing one verse this way and one verse another. And if you’re doing it a capella, you don’t have to keep any time. You can just go out as far as you want to with it.
Ralph Stanley
Love is all a matter of timing. It’s no good meeting the right person too soon or too late.
Wong Kar-wai
I know when I’ve been playing a lot of golf it takes me a while to get back into cricket again. It’s not so much the different shape of the swings, more the fact that you are stationary when you hit a golf ball. In cricket you have to move forward or back, which is an instinctive timing thing.
Ricky Ponting
I just like doing comedies, and think that my timing and love for the genre set me apart from other young women who look like me.
Bar Paly
Discipline isn’t a dirty word. Far from it. Discipline is the one thing that separates us from chaos and anarchy. Discipline implies timing. It’s the precursor to good behavior, and it never comes from bad behavior. People who associate discipline with punishment are wrong: with discipline, punishment is unnecessary.
Buck Brannaman
Sometimes you’re timing is good, but they’re pitching you really well and you have to adjust. The only way you can do it is if you’re in there every day.
Jose Bautista
Everything is complicated about using concrete – the discipline and dedication necessary to make consistent batches, understanding exactly how the formwork will be laid, what the timing is for the pours, how you keep it clean and neat to achieve a fine quality.
Annabelle Selldorf
Our stay-put behavior reflects our view that the stock market serves as a relocation center at which money is moved from the active to the patient.
Warren Buffett
It’s going to come down to executing, trying to keep guys off balance and disrupting timing. That’s something you can do regardless of how many times you face a lineup or face certain hitters.
Jake Arrieta
I’m at a point where there isn’t any wasted movement in the throwing motion. Everything is consistent and smooth. When I first got into the league, I held the ball really high. That was the standard in college, and it messed up my timing a little bit – the draw, bringing it back, then the release.
Aaron Rodgers
There’s timing in drama. You have to have a sense of rhythm. But the real thing that lends yourself to drama as opposed to comedy is a sense from the audience of whether there’s more to it than you can see.
Bob Odenkirk
There is timing in everything. Timing in strategy cannot be mastered without a great deal of practice.
Miyamoto Musashi
Comedy isn’t necessarily all dialogue. Think of Buster Keaton: the poker face and all this chaos going on all around him. Sometimes it’s a question of timing, of the proper rhythm.
Clint Eastwood
Weichel hits very hard and is very good with the timing of his attacks.
Patricio Freire
If a film is good, it will do well irrespective of the timing. Period.
Uday Chopra
The scoops and laps are something I’ve always had. The timing of the shots is the important part. You can’t use it when it’s reckless, you’ve to use it at the right time. Using the crease is something I’ve consciously worked on.
Dinesh Karthik
But if applause throws off your timing, then you’re not the kind of comedian I would like to see. All you have to do is stand there and take it.
Jay Mohr
You learn timing on the road. You learn structure and how to read an audience. You learn so much about the business of laughter that you can’t learn on a set, because it’s all on you. Sometimes you bomb, and you know not to tell that joke again… You just hope people find the humor in the awkwardness.
Marlon Wayans
Lyoto is never going to lose his skills. He might lose his timing, speed, cardio, but he’ll never lose his skills.
Derek Brunson
The timing of comedy is so difficult. You’ve got to leave room for a laugh, you don’t want to kill the laugh, but on film, you can’t just suddenly stop for a laugh and then carry on. So, I think it’s a real art form, comedy on film.
Helen Mirren
I was attracted to Joe right away. He was and is one of the greatest cartoon artists I’ve ever met. I was able to do the timing, and Joe with his draftsmanship could make the storyboards. There were things I could do that he couldn’t and vice versa.
William Hanna
It is so seldom in this world that things come just when they are wanted.
Margaret Oliphant
Rhythm and timing are the two things which we all must have, yet no one knows how to teach either.
Bobby Jones
The right timing is not always our timing.
Joyce Meyer
The thing with TV and filming is the timing is all faked anyway. You do it so many times, from so many different angles. You never really do it all in one go anyway, so they just fix it all in the edit.
Simon Bird
You can practice dance, climbing a mountain and action stunts, but to get your timing right you have to have the power of imagination and an alert mind.
Rajpal Yadav
We continue to make more money when snoring than when active.
Warren Buffett
I think that the board is a lot more intuitive than people assume. You get on it and all you have to do is put one foot on the tail and one foot on the nose and rock it up and down and that will get you into the tricks or wheelies or manuals. It’s not about the balance so much as it is about the timing.
Tony Hawk
[Maggie Smith] brings new meaning to the phrase “doesn’t suffer fools.” She has just the most amazing, dry timing of anyone ever, I think. I think everyone’s always known about it, but with her resurgence on Downton Abbey, a whole new generation has been introduced to it, which is just great.
Rob Lowe
Me and Akshay share a great timing and bond in real life and that comes alive on screen. Our scenes in ‘Singh Is Bliing’ are something which audience will enjoy a lot.
Lara Dutta
Everything kind of was leading towards that and I had so many specific ideas always about how exactly I wanted something to look. I would customize so many things in my wardrobe that were vintage or things that I was buying, and it just really all aligned and the timing was perfect.
Rumi Neely
Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments.
Rose Kennedy
The whole idea of timing tests is a century old, from a scientist who thought speed and ability were tightly correlated, which they are not.
L. Todd Rose
Not long after Kroy and I got married, we found out I was pregnant with a baby boy! We knew we wanted another baby without a doubt, we just wanted to be married first, so the timing was absolutely perfect.
Kim Zolciak-Biermann
Because we allow handguns. When you know someone in the crowd might be packing a rod, it can’t help but rush your timing.
Emo Philips
You have to pace yourself. Obviously, it would be nice to be on top of your game the entire season, but what I’ve learned during my career is that timing is everything.
Carey Price
Cinderella and the prince
lived, they say, happily ever after,
like two dolls in a museum case
never bothered by diapers or dust,
never arguing over the timing of an egg,
never telling the same story twice.
Anne Sexton
Plus they think the hurricane’s going to hit (starts laughing) New Orleans about the time they start. The timing, at least it appears now, that it’ll be there Monday. That just demonstrates God’s on our side
Donald Fowler
Every time I throw, I hate to miss. It’s like those timing games in the arcades. I win every single time. Guys watch me and they pay me to keep playing.
Ryan Garcia
A freshet in the autumn does not compensate for a drought in the spring.
Mary Boykin Chesnut
Timing is everything.
Buck Brannaman
There’s timing. And then there’s also certain people at the record company who worked incredibly hard and were incredibly enthusiastic about what I was doing.
Mary Chapin Carpenter
I was so naive in radio technique that I knew nothing about timing. I would write pages on Honus Wagner and then get only half through by the time the show ended. I eventually learned, but there was nobody there to school me.
Waite Hoyt
This is not to say I don’t feel my own grief, which can hit powerfully at unexpected times. It’s just that the telling does not automatically bring on my own upset, as people assume. I deal more with their reaction than they do with mine, and so you have to choose your timing.
Deb Caletti
The timing of Ring of Honor actually giving a push to women’s wrestling and starting the Ring of Honor women’s tournament worked out well. It was good timing with all of that around me being a free agent.
Tenille Dashwood
I’m such a profound believer that timing is everything; I would tattoo that on my arm.
Drew Barrymore
Think of aerobics plus weight lifting minus the music or camaraderie. Combine unalloyed endurance with straightforward strength and demand poise, timing, and practiced form as well. Think of pure pain: that’s the ergometer.
Barry S. Strauss
I feel like somebody who just is very understanding is my biggest thing – timing is a major issue for me – but also funny! Obviously I want someone really cute and fun and fresh for good Instagram pictures and that just makes me really happy.
James Charles
We must wait until the evening to see how splendid the day had been.
Juventus offered me the opportunity to sign in 2017 and I turned it down. I just didn’t feel the timing was right.
Eniola Aluko
…There is a school of thought, a heresy from the madhouse of heresies in the ninth century, that says God is good and is in control of every individual thing that happens, every event, but that unfortunately the devil is in control of the timing.
Norman Rush
My hard work finally catching up with perfect timing
I mean, comedy’s hard. If you go back and look at the first season of ‘Seinfeld,’ it’s a work in progress and that’s what happens. It just takes time for people to figure each other out, and figure out timing, and to develop creatively with the writers.
Zachary Knighton
In the beginning of our career, we want to make an identity, and I am happy that people think I have good comic timing, and they are casting me in films.
Kartik Aaryan
My mum has had heart-attacks, a stroke, and it all coincided with me being called up for Scotland so the timing was not good. Thankfully, she is a great woman.
Robert Snodgrass
Ah! the clock is always slow; it is later than you think.
Robert W. Service
And for one second, it was like I could feel the timing clicking together, finally pieces falling into place.
Sarah Dessen
For me, playwriting is and has always been like making a chair. Your concerns are balance, form, timing, lights, space, music. If you don’t have these essentials, you might as well be writing a theoretical essay, not a play.
Sam Shepard
Jack Benny, Fred Allen. Their jokes were wonderful. It takes skill to be funny. The timing of Jack Benny was so fine. It is a form of genius for which we should be grateful.
Kurt Vonnegut
I imagined my fantasy co-author would look like Miranda Kerr, but have the intellect and comedic timing of Liz Lemon.
Judy Greer
Whole purpose of doing endurance sport is to understand your body better, it’s not about timing, it’s not about competition, it’s about understanding your body, mind, potential.
Milind Soman
Life for me has always been about timing, and it was bad timing for that disease to hit me; it was time to exit stage.
Brock Lesnar
Trust in Divine timing. Your future holds something far greater than your past.
Cheryl Richardson
Timing is everything. ThatВґs right. Which is why our sages tell us to repent exactly one day before we die.” But how do you know itВґs the day before you die? I asked. He raised his eyebrows. “Exactly
Mitch Albom
The most difficult part of portraying ‘Darna’ would probably be the timing when you do stunts. You have to look strong but you can’t be too strong because you don’t want to hurt the person you are doing the scene with.
Liza Soberano
Timing is everything.
Tommy Shaw
In timing a film, we used to assume that sneaks move slowly. This was great for animators-thirty-six to forty-eight drawings for a single step-but it was sheer hell for the pace of the picture. So the rapid tiptoe was invented.
Chuck Jones
I took several years of dance lessons that included ballet, tap and jazz. They helped a great deal with body control, balance, a sense of rhythm, and timing.
Lynn Swann
Most people here agree that the rhetoric got overblown on both sides of the Atlantic before the Iraq war, and it was a disagreement among friends over the timing, not the substance, of the Iraq war.
John S. Tanner
Things come suitable to the time.
Enid Bagnold
I might have to wait. I’ll never give up. I guess it’s half timing, and the other half’s luck. Wherever you are, whenever it’s right, you’ll come out of nowhere and into my life.
Michael Buble
I just started playing around different clubs, and I got a good reputation around New York City of having good timing, a good right foot, and I was “funky”, “soulful”, and all that stuff. Then I ran into this group, the Pigeons.
Carmine Appice
I watched Pablo Zabaleta countless times on YouTube and clips, because I think his timing of runs into the box is fantastic.
Kyle Walker
It’s hard to transfer one person’s type of comic timing or approach to another person’s. It’s something you innately hear like a rhythm in your ear.
Marisa Tomei
If you’re a content creator looking to elicit a certain emotion, we can validate that. In cases where an ad is trying to elicit humor, we can tell you if people get the jokes or not by the number of people who smile, the intensity of the smile, and the timing of the smile.
Rana el Kaliouby
I am aware that success is more than a good idea. It is timing too.
Anita Roddick
For me, the fall of the Wall came at the exact right time because, I mean, I was 17, basically I hadn’t missed anything, unlike the generation of my parents, who were deprived of a lot of things. They couldn’t travel, and they couldn’t really get ahead in their professional careers. So for me, it was perfect timing.
Tom Wlaschiha
Timing in life is everything.
Leonard Maltin
Ask any comedian, tennis player, chef. Timing is everything.
Meg Rosoff
Most executives have learned that what one postpones, one actually abandons … timing is a most important element in the success of any effort. To do five years later what would have been smart to do five years earlier, is almost a sure recipe for frustration and failure.
Peter Drucker
JaVale McGee is one of the smartest guys I know. Like, he’s a nerd, plays with gadgets, and is into technology. He’s funny – he’s got crazy jokes, and his timing with jokes is really funny. You have to be really smart to think the way he does.
Andre Iguodala
Through studies of music and the brain, we’ve learned to map out specific areas involved in emotion, timing, and perception – and production of sequences. They’ve told us how the brain deals with patterns and how it completes them when there’s misinformation.
Daniel Levitin
My first YA novel, not many people have read. It’s a fickle business. There’s a degree of timing and luck involved.
Gayle Forman
I’ve always believed that pastry chefs are born, not made. They’re patient, methodical, tidy, and organized. It’s why I stick to the savory side of the kitchen – I’m far too messy and impulsive to do all the measuring, timing, and rule-following that pastry demands.
Samin Nosrat
Life is about timing.
Carl Lewis
We are individuals. There’s free will. There’s timing. We can make the same things in totally different ways.
Nicole Richie
God’s timing is rarely our timing.
Kevin DeYoung
I have a solo deal with Columbia Records. So it’s about, do I want to release an album, when can we do it, what kind of album should it be, how should it be released and marketed and what’s the right timing? Do I have time to do it? It’s all about questions.
Cory Monteith
Basic philosophy, spirit and drive of an organization have far more to do with its relative achievements than do technological or economic resources, organizational structure, innovation and timing.
Marvin Bower
Timing is everything. That’s a cliche. Now. If I’d said that a long time ago, I’d have been original.
Demetri Martin
Super Tuesday is the day on which most states hold their primaries. Its darker partner is Dirty Tricks Thursday: the Thursday before an election when candidates release scandalous stories to garner bad publicity for their opponent: the timing means the accused will have little time to refute the allegations.
Susie Dent
Trust is very important. In ‘Goodfellas’ in the ‘Go home and get your shine box!’ scene, we must have filmed 15 takes. If you played each take back, the timing would be exactly the same each time.
Frank Vincent
In the early ’90s when the American independent movie started, it held personal vision as a premium. That was brilliant timing.
Allison Anders
I’ve always said I have very good timing. It is underestimated when you are outside the ring but once you get inside the ring with me, I’m a step ahead.
Mikey Garcia
The essence of football was blocking, tackling, and execution based on timing, rhythm and deception.
Knute Rockne
Patience is timing, just being humble and being the most quiet person in the room.
Raheem Devaughn
Keep honoring God with your life, stay in peace, trust His timing and God will open doors that no man can shut.
Joel Osteen
You can say you have faith, you can say you believe in God, but until you feel completely uncomfortable, not knowing where to turn, at your lowest – that is where you have to decide to trust that God’s timing is right and that He will show you why you’re going through this.
Carly Pearce
God’s promises are not always fulfilled as quickly as or in the way we might hope; they come according to His timing and in His ways.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
When it comes to everybody else’s thing and their lane and their timing, I’m never doing anything intentional to, like, come after somebody. That will always be my biggest mistake or anybody’s biggest mistake if that’s their intention.
The early years of Hanna-Barbera were more fun than the later ones. I was working more in the creative areas of timing and direction then. But as the studio grew, I became more involved in administration and got away from the creative aspects.
William Hanna
There is something about the ritual of the race – putting on the number, lining up, being timed – that brings out the best in us.
Grete Waitz
Usually when you ask somebody in college why they are there, they’ll tell you it’s to get an education. The truth of it is, they are there to get the degree so that they can get ahead in the rat race. Too many college radicals are two-timing punks. The only reason you should be in college is to destroy it.
Abbie Hoffman
Timing is everything.
Molly Sims
There is no answer to any of these questions. It’s a matter of time and timing, of seas and seasons, of breathing in and breathing out. It’s a matter of balance.
Peter McWilliams
I mean, comedy’s hard. If you go back and look at the first season of Seinfeld, it’s a work in progress and that’s what happens. It just take time for people to figure each other out, and figure out timing, and to develop creatively with the writers.
Zachary Knighton
A Leader must possess credibility, imagination, enthusiasm, vision, foresight, a sense of timing, a passion for excellence and be willing to share.
William Rosenberg
If you’re talking about musically, I think I understand just a little bit more about things that were mostly intuited back then – how certain timings and tones work, so I can be a little more analytical about things now.
David First
And he says I have lousy timing
Kelley Armstrong
I expected women to get mad at me because I was knocking pregnancy any way shape or form even though I wasn’t against the act, just the timing. And also they said, ‘Well he’s mad because Becky Lynch is pregnant.’ No I’m not mad, once again, I’m astonished! At the timing!
Jim Cornette
Bernard Manning is controversial but he had incredible timing. I wrote the character of Brian Potter in ‘Phoenix Nights’ for him to play but unfortunately he was too poorly to do it. I thought it would have been perfect casting but it didn’t happen.
Peter Kay
With comedy it’s all about timing and presence on screen, as the words are there but you have to say them right and the right timing.
Michelle Keegan
I didn’t really feel like a girly girl. I didn’t want to wear boob tubes and flared trousers and disco clothes. Then when punk came along it was like, ‘Oh great, I can wear ripped jeans and manky t-shirts and flat caps.’ It was just perfect timing for me.
Kathy Burke
When your timing is off, so is your stride. When your cadence is off, you’re in deep trouble as a hurdler.
Rod Milburn
The towers fell, and the first thing that went through my head was my dad’s voice: ‘Well, you brought a new life into the world, and the world’s over. Nice timing, numbnuts!
Christopher Titus
Your timing has to be very accurate. I’ve done a lot of wire work before. I can see that experience makes a big difference.
Michelle Yeoh
Often my friends point out that I haven’t contributed to a particular film at all, or my comic timing wasn’t bang on. I tell them I’m human and bound to make mistakes… I hope I don’t repeat those mistakes.
Johnny Lever
My baseball career ended in college.I played on the freshman team, but was becoming more drawn to intellectualism than athleticism, and so I gave up baseball, and it was perfect timing because baseball was going to give up me very soon.
Donald Trump
Finally here, Imma star with the timing. My swagger is chill and my flow is reclining.
He is not only a God of perfect time, but of perfect timing.
Beth Moore
No-one gets an iron-clad guarantee of success. Certainly, factors like opportunity, luck and timing are important. But the backbone of success is usually found in old-fashioned, basic concepts like hard work, determination, good planning and perseverance.
Mia Hamm
I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.
Albert Einstein
You know, there are a lot of would-be governors of Texas sitting around today who never took the opportunity to get into a race when the time was right. If George is good at anything, it’s timing.
Laura Bush
Comedy’s easy for me now – it’s all about timing and the way you deliver lines. I use facial expressions to get the point across.
Melissa Joan Hart
Half the interest of a garden is the constant exercise of the imagination. You are always living three, or indeed six, months hence. I believe that people entirely devoid of imagination never can be really good gardeners. To be content with the present, and not striving about the future, is fatal.
Alice Morse Earle
Playing King George, for me, was a lesson in stillness and timing.
Jonathan Groff
Of course I would love to have another track as big as ‘Animals,’ but ‘Animals’ became big also because of luck, the timing, and hype.
Martin Garrix
Your timing is amazing,” Kami told him. “By which I mean, I am amazed by it.
Sarah Rees Brennan
I won’t say I am a strict mother, but discipline is important. Timing and routine are important for kids.
Karisma Kapoor
Comedy is one of the toughest genres. It is so essential to get the timing right, failing which the humour can fall flat.
Jacqueline Fernandez
It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?
Henry David Thoreau
I haven’t just got a fight IQ – and I’m clever. I’ve got that power. I’ve got that movement. I’ve got that timing.
Darren Till
I also learned to tell a story. I think I learned from poetry how to time a story. Poetry’s timing, beats and pauses. That white space on the page is as important as the black. The bottom of the page is blackout. It’s performance.
Sandra Cisneros
Just because you used one set on one guy and had success doesn’t mean you can use that exact set, that exact timing, the next time.
D’Brickashaw Ferguson
A loud booming noise interrupted us, and we saw a flash of light off to my right. People near the other garages screamed. “There, you see?” asked Abe, quite pleased with himself. “A new gate. Perfect timing.
Richelle Mead
To do a film with Govinda, who is a legend in that genre, whose timing is impeccable was challenging.
Varun Sharma
In politics things change, in politics timing is important, and in politics, how I move, I don’t tell you.
Tan Cheng Bock
It eventually comes down to the right timing and right scripts. Some may have two to three releases a year, some may have just one – luck changes with every Friday release.
Sunny Singh
Time is that wherein there is opportunity, and opportunity is that wherein there is no great time.
Life is about timing and overcoming difficult things.
Carl Lewis
Love is the sister to Truth, but they differ in two ways. You must go to Truth to find her. She will never come looking for you. However, you are never to go looking for her sister Love. Love will find you in your own divine timing, when you are ready for her. So dont look, she will come. She always does.
Suzy Kassem
It’s not over until it’s over.
Yogi Berra
… studying is a preparation for knowing; it is a patient and impatient exercise on the part of someone whose intent is not to know it all at once but to struggle to meet the timing of knowledge.
Paulo Freire
My timing’s a little off. But I’m about to get hotter than Jamaica in the middle of August.
David Ortiz
When we are unduly impatient with an omniscient God’s timing, we really are suggesting that we know what’s best. Strange isn’t it-we who wear wrist watches seek to counsel Him who oversees cosmic clocks and calendars.
Neal A. Maxwell
God’s timing is always on time.
Charles R. Swindoll
Sometimes you need to stay in touch but be out of reach.
Jim Rohn
Failure: Is it a limitation? Bad timing? It’s a lot of things. It’s something you can’t be afraid of, because you’ll stop growing. The next step beyond failure could be your biggest success in life.
Debbie Allen
That man was beautiful. Timing, speed, reflexes, rhythm, his body, everything was beautiful. And to me, still, I would say pound for pound… I’d say I’m the greatest heavyweight of all time, but pound for pound, I still say Sugar Ray Robinson was the greatest of all time.
Muhammad Ali
Music is very similar to comedy: It’s all about texture, timing, context, vocabulary, performance. When someone’s onstage doing a solo, essentially it’s the same thing as what a comedian does. They’re in the moment. They’re listening.
Reggie Watts
In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these.
Paul Harvey
‘Eureka’ was very bad timing. The early 1980s: Reagan and Thatcher were in, greed was good, and here was a film about the richest man in the world who still couldn’t be happy. Politically and sociologically, it was out of step.
Nicolas Roeg
Music has always been important to me. Rhythm, in particular, features in most of the things I do. I stumbled recently upon an old notebook in which I’d written, ‘Touch, timing and timbre… keys to the heart.’ That just about says it all.
James Nares
My comic timing is completely based on Pu La’s literature, his style of writing and the wittiness between the lines.
Ashok Saraf
If the request is wrong, God says, No. If the timing is wrong, God says, Slow. If you are wrong, God says, Grow. But if the request is right, the timing is right and you are right, God says, Go!
Bill Hybels
The decision to retire was very easy. The timing had come to the point where it was very clear that my time was up.
Susie Wolff
Timing is everything in this markets.
Daniel S. Loeb
love is all about timing
Karuho Shiina
Let’s finish with Guccifer. My communication with him is now entirely public. It is benign.Secondarily, the timing of my communication is after, not before, I write a story for Breitbart regarding the hacking. And I never defend him from not being a Russian agent in that piece.
Roger Stone
I love Benny Hill. He one of my favourites of all time. Like, the way Benny did it, he was just amazing. Just seeing how he put songs together and comedy and the timing and the sketches. He was way ahead of his time.
Snoop Dogg
I like both music and acting, and they both have a lot in common – timing, immediacy, stuff like that. But acting is more regimented. You wait around for hours, you don’t get to write the script, you get hired. Music represents me better. I’m not acting; I’m just expressing myself.
Lukas Haas
I think timing is everything. I have no regrets in my career. I’ve been able to make a name for myself and build my own brand.
Bobby Roode
Don’t miss God’s fingerprints all over the events, lining up people and circumstances in perfect timing to preserve His people and advance His agenda.
James MacDonald
Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.
Will Rogers
Well, I don’t need protection One life begins, another dies Bad timing I won’t last
John Frusciante
Everybody’s been blessed with something, and my gift is my timing. Let’s face it, it’s all about keeping time and having a groove.
Gina Schock
The timing was terrible, and having one disaster after another didn’t help. I think the pictures on television of the way in which the disaster was handled also helped to turn off the public and Congress.
Billy Tauzin
Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing.
Warren Spahn
A seed depends on a whole host of factors to grow – from the fertility of the soil to the right mix of rain and sun to not being eaten by a passing bird. The same goes for an idea. For an idea to really take hold, other factors come into play, from timing to the emerging technology that makes it possible.
Taavet Hinrikus
Timing is everything, as you know.
Brent Spiner
I try to tell a story the way someone would tell you a story in a bar, with the same kind of timing and pacing.
Chuck Palahniuk
The gardener’s work is never at at end; it begins with the year, and continues to the next: he prepares the ground, and then he sows it; after that he plants, and then he gathers the fruits.
John Evelyn
Trust in God’s timing. It’s better to have to wait a while and have things fall into place then to rush into something and have things fall apart.
Adam Cappa
Faith in God includes Faith in God’s timing.
Neal A. Maxwell
I am a very firm believer in Cody Rhodes. I think he is fantastic, an absolute superstar. Unbelievable in the ring, great timing, great pacing – he’s in great physical conditioning, can cut a heck of a promo, and just an all-around good guy.
Kenny Omega
Timing is a big part of stunt work and fighting scenes. It’s something you learn in WWE, especially when they are really character-driven fights.
Eve Torres
I really want to go to Harvard; it’s just a matter of timing.
Aubrey Peeples
To be fair to ourselves, in almost every original script, the timing is actually worked out down to the minute.
Michael Loceff
When you label someone ‘up and coming’ or ‘the new breakout,’ there’s this kind of expectation. And I think, like I said before, it’s very hard to live up to that expectation when you really don’t have that much power as an actor – in terms of your career path and the timing.
Ruth Negga
As much effort it takes in nailing great comic timing, it takes the same effort to ace any dance step or a romantic dialogue. All of them have their different space.
Tahir Raj Bhasin
I feel great. George W.Bush is leaving. We’re leaving. It’s all perfect timing.
Al Jourgensen
God’s timing is always perfect. Trust His delays. He’s got you.
Tony Evans
I negotiated the proper timing and other things having to do with one of our other debates.
Donald Trump
I use the cigar for timing purposes. If I tell a joke, I smoke as long as they laugh and when they stop laughing I take the cigar out of my mouth and start my next joke.
George Burns
Where cancer is concerned, it’s safe to say there’s no such thing as good timing.
Suleika Jaouad
Timing’s mighty important. In cooking, in life, in love. If the timing goes wrong, you’ve got to start over. Do it right.
Anya Seton
A guy like Darrelle Revis has been in the NFL a long time. They study tendencies. They know what you’re doing from the way you line up. When you run a route, you almost have to be perfect at it. You can’t slip. Timing has to be perfect with the quarterback going against a smart guy like him.
DeAndre Hopkins
MIDI made a natural transition to the PC. The MIDI messages that make up a musical composition can be saved as MIDI files, which are collections of MIDI messages with timing information.
Charles Petzold
It’s bad timing, but a lot of kids become teenagers just as their parents are hitting their mid-life crisis. So everybody’s miserable and confused and seeking that new sense of identity.
Laurie Halse Anderson
People talk about perfect timing, but I think everything is perfect in its moment; you just want to capture that.
Eddie Huang
I have had no contacts or collusions with the Russians. And my exchange with Guccifer 2, based on the content and the timing, most certainly does not constitute collusion.
Roger Stone
I would love to do something like Austin Powers to show off my comic timing.
Uma Thurman
Looking back, Google’s success came from the fortuitous timing of being born at the cusp of the broadband age. But it also came about because of the new reality of the Internet: a lot of services were going to be algorithmic, and owning your own infrastructure would be a key advantage.
Om Malik
The audience has reacted well to my comic timing. But, I also have other aspects to my acting talent.
Kartik Aaryan
Time is found in the calibration of the individual to the timing of a collective endeavour, the social grace that less clock-bound societies must practise.
Jay Griffiths
What I do have is an appreciation for the fact that I’ve been very blessed and fortunate with timing, in getting opportunities that I wouldn’t have otherwise gotten, if I weren’t from a football family where my grandfather had so much success. I’m not naive enough to think otherwise.
Sean McVay
The whole art of life is knowing the right time to say things.
Maeve Binchy
Amateur wrestling, you can go by instinct. Pro wrestling, you have to memorize, and you have to go by what moves you said you were going to do. Sometimes you have to feel the crowd and do the moves at the right time and know the timing and tell a good story.
Kurt Angle
It’s funny, because not everyone can make the NBA, but timing and being in the right situation is something that can make or break someone or a team.
Joe Ingles
I am aware that as an actor, I can blame others for the failure of a film, the director, the script, choice of co-stars, timing of the release and so on. But now, as the director, I will have to shoulder all the blame.
Anupam Kher
I’d say that, to be a good deal maker, you have to have three basic characteristics – timing, timing, and timing.
Richard Armitage
We have had political parties threatening to bring down the government, talking about it but not bringing down the government. What I am focused on is the things we are in control of. The timing of a general election, we don’t have control over.
James Cleverly
The most important ingredient for success in the stock market is a sharp sense of timing.
Venita VanCaspel
Our shipment of mowers was lost at sea and while we waited, winter descended and covered our green lawns with snow. That taught me a key lesson, the importance of timing. The shipping company lost the lawnmowers! By the time they showed up no one wanted them, as you can’t cut grass when it’s covered with snow.
Terry Matthews
CNT was a good fit for ‘Nashville,’ and ‘Nashville’ was a great fit for CNT, and so timing was right. You know, they’re investing more in scripted television – the show brought a lot of more eyeballs to CNT, eyeballs that are interested in country music – so, I mean, it couldn’t have been a better fit.
Chris Carmack
The object of our prayers should not be to present a wish list or a series of requests but to secure for ourselves and for others blessings that God is eager to bestow, according to His will and timing.
David A. Bednar
My timing is off. But I had to get it out. Some things you have to tell, no matter how stupid they may sound. Some things you can’t save for later. There might not be a later.
Mary E. Pearson
I think everyone at some point in their career would like the opportunity to go back to their alma mater, but from a timing standpoint, it’s just never worked.
Jeff Fisher
At home in Devon, my wife Jessica does a huge proportion of the cooking – I do the basics. My timing is extremely good, particularly when it comes to vegetables, perhaps because in my work, timing is everything. I know exactly what fits into a minute when broadcasting, and I apply the same to carrots.
Jonathan Dimbleby
Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.
Hector Berlioz
John Bonham was probably the most influential in terms of playing style and timing.
Tommy Lee
Good teams beat you with speed. Great teams beat you with spacing and timing.
Jason Kidd
Timing is a sensitive thing.
Erin Morgenstern
All things entail rising and falling timing. You must be able to discern this.
Miyamoto Musashi
On stage you look much larger than you are. You can have subtle changes of timing; how you place a punchline in a joke or movement or emotion according to an audience.
Sylvester McCoy
Every jock gets up and tells the world how lucky he is. But I feel that I may be the luckiest one of all in terms of timing and being at the right place at the right moment-even though, for the last 30 years, I was told I was born 20 years too soon, for obvious reasons.
Bob Cousy
Your best work involves timing. If someone wrote the best hip hop song of all time in the Middle Ages, he had bad timing.
Scott Adams
… No one “gets away” with evil. Judgment always comes, only the timing is uncertain.
Pat Robertson
When we surrender to His timing, He does mighty things in and for us, according to His will and His timing. God acts on behalf of those who wait for Him.
Charles Stanley
To love God is to love His will. It is to wait quietly for life to be measured by One who knows us through and through. It is to be content with His timing and His wise appointment.
Elisabeth Elliot
To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.
George Santayana
Politics is all a matter of timing.
Sharad Pawar
Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, all will be made right in the Lord’s timing.
Richard G. Scott
I admit that I sometimes climbed on other fellows’ backs. But I used to watch the flight of the ball perhaps more than the other fellow did. Perfect timing, a deep breath and a natural spring then helped me to get above them.
Roy Cazaly
