  1. I abhor war and view it as the greatest scourge of mankind.
  2. I absolutely adore Christmas.
  3. I absolutely believed when I was young because the Tooth Fairy was always good to me. The Tooth Fairy generally left me a dollar or two dollars and, as a kid, that was a lot of money.
  4. I absolutely loathe the idea of doing a fragrance simply as a moneymaker. Personal brand to make money? Vomit.
  5. I absolutely love low-key restaurants.
  6. I absolutely should be on social media, and I think every person who’s an influencer should be, and should be doing good things.
  7. I absolutely want to have children, whether I have my own or adopt.
  8. I accept chaos, I’m not sure whether it accepts me.
  9. I accept that there are multitudes seeking God, seeking meaning, and so on, but if they reject atheism, I would rather they became modern-day Catholics or Jews than that they became Muslims.
  10. I accepted the face that as much as I want to lead others, and love to be around other people, in some essential way, I am something of a loner.
  11. I accidentally forgot to graduate from college.
  12. I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment, endowed with senses, memories, emotions, thoughts, and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect.
  13. I acquired a hunger for fairy tales in the dark days of blackout and blitz in the Second World War.
  14. I act, but I am a mother first and wife second.
  15. I acted out a lot. I was very nerdy. I was very isolated, which I made up for by kind of talking and trying to entertain people and get them to like me, so I did theatre and improv in high school and college, but always as a hobby.
  16. I actually didn’t find too many differences between B-town and the south. The difference lies in the temperature. I was shooting when it was 45 degrees Celsius in Chennai; Mumbai is cooler.
  17. I actually didn’t grow up watching ‘Degrassi,’ but I saw the commercials and knew the characters. I didn’t realize that Drake was the guy from ‘Degrassi.’ I had to piece it together and go, ‘Oh! He’s Aubrey Graham.’
  18. I actually don’t have a bad hairline.
  19. I actually don’t invest in anything that is social, mobile, deals or ad networks simply because those are areas where there are so many players and so many other smart people in the space, I feel like I don’t have a competitive advantage. So I tend to go after things that are e-commerce, like healthcare.
  20. I actually like indoor track and field more than outdoor.
  21. I actually like the sort of industrial, working-class woman like Rosie the Riveter, so I’m kind of like the sort of street style of the ’50s.
  22. I actually lost more weight than I am!
  23. I actually love actresses who look like they feel really natural. I like Patricia Clarkson, Laura Linney, Frances McDormand. Those are actresses where the second they show up on screen you’re like, oh my gosh, this movie just got so much better.
  24. I actually opened for Chris Rock at the Funny Bone one time.
  25. I actually run a non-profit where one of the main objectives is to branch out and get a new audience for the theater. Just because the writing is so good and nothing is more effective than seeing something live and happening right in front of your face, so I definitely want to continue to pursue that.
  26. I actually thought that it would be a little confusing during the same period of your life to be in one meeting when you’re trying to make money, and then go to another meeting where you’re giving it away. I mean is it gonna erode your ability, you know, to make money? Are you gonna somehow get confused about what you’re trying to do?
  27. I actually used to be a front for the largest national sports-betting syndicate in America.
  28. I actually went to NYU for six months, had some family issues that kind of set me back, and I couldn’t afford to go anymore. That was the theme going on in my whole life, you know: money stopping me from whatever I wanted to do.
  29. I admire American women because they are really good at putting a look together that is sophisticated. As British girls, we lean toward being a bit more messy, a bit more undone, and maybe a little more eccentric.
  30. I admire people who dare to take the language, English, and understand it and understand the melody.
  31. I admired the work of photographers like Beaton, Penn, and Avedon as much as I respected the grittier photographers such as Robert Frank. But in the same way that I had to find my own way of reportage, I had to find my own form of glamour.
  32. I admit that I look at my social media when I’m killing time, like on a plane and such. It’s just less embarrassing getting caught on Twitter than getting caught playing Candy Crush.
  33. I adore going to a very, very fancy restaurant – as long as the spirit is genuine, like it’s their pleasure to welcome you.
  34. I adore women, and the one thing I want to do more than anything is to see a transformation of personality when someone puts on one of my dresses.
  35. I advise keeping four feet on the floor and all hands on deck.
  36. I advocate that every woman be a part of a circle, and a circle that meets at least once a month, or if you can’t do that, once every two months or every four months.
  37. I agree with Balzac and 19th-century writers, black and white, who say, ‘I write for money.’ Yes, I think everybody should be paid handsomely; I insist on it, and I pay people who work for me, or with me, handsomely.
  38. I agree with people like Richard Dawkins that mankind felt the need for creation myths. Before we really began to understand disease and the weather and things like that, we sought false explanations for them. Now science has filled in some of the realm – not all – that religion used to fill.
  39. I ain’t never far away from a pencil and paper or a tape recorder.
  40. I almost laughed about the Machiavellian plans of the presidents of the United States.
  41. I also always carry my flute. It’s very important for me to try to relax when I’m travelling, and playing my flute helps me to unwind.
  42. I also focus on Bush and his administration – who do a lot of lying – and how a right-wing media has allowed them to get away with a lot of stuff that, in a different media environment, they probably wouldn’t be able to get away with.
  43. I also like the whole idea of fairy tales and folk tales being a woman’s domain, considered a lesser domain at the time they were told.
  44. I also started writing songs because I had this burning activity in my heart and had to express myself.
  45. I also think if you’re an actor and you can improvise, when you go on an audition and you can improvise you’re just a genius. If you can, you know, take a Tide commercial and you can just say one funny line that’s not in the commercial they think you’re a genius.
  46. I also think we live in a competitive world, and I love competition.
  47. I also thought of playing improvisational jazz and I did take lessons for a while. At first I tried to write fiction by making up things that were completely alien to my life.
  48. I always, always decide where I’m going with the ball before I take a penalty shot, stare at the ball, follow through, and never look at the place that I’m going to shoot.
  49. I always appreciated my dad coming outside and playing with us – or my mom – and being a part of the game we were playing or refereeing it or just being outside. That was fun for us, and it was very encouraging.
  50. I always ask God to work through me and let me be a light of some kind and help in this world, so I always pray for that, and I always want to do good.
  51. I always ask, ‘Is this movie essential? Does this movie need to exist? Does it need to exist right now?’ And the answer to that is almost always no.
  52. I always avoid prophesying beforehand, because it is a much better policy to prophesy after the event has already taken place.
  53. I always beat the sun up in the morning. It’s the secret to why I’m double trouble.
  54. I always believe the rule by king or official leader is outdated. Now we must catch up with the modern world.
  55. I always believed in animal spirits. It’s not their existence that is new. It’s the fact that they are not random events, but actually replicate in-bred qualities of human nature which create those animal spirits.
  56. I always believed that my silence on several topics will be an advantage in the long run.
  57. I always bring out the best in men I fight, but Joe Frazier, I’ll tell the world right now, brings out the best in me. I’m gonna tell ya, that’s one helluva man, and God bless him.
  58. I always choose to look, as much as one can, at the supernatural not being something that exists outside of nature, but a deeper, fundamental heart of nature that perhaps humans… have lost touch with. It’s a more primal thing than perhaps we are attuned to in our modern, self-aware way of life.
  59. I always cringe when people tell me they don’t eat breakfast, as though that’s a good thing. Eek! You have to start the day off with something in your stomach to get your metabolism active. Also, the mental game of ‘holding out,’ not eating for as long as possible, at least for me, was a really unhealthy mental place.
  60. I always did music privately as a hobby, I think partly because I was nervous to do it in front of other people.
  61. I always do stories that I believe in, characters that I find interesting, and directors who I want to work with. All these factors have contributed while making choices and continue to as an actor and as a producer.
  62. I always encourage people to pay themselves first, so I really advocate setting up direct deposit for your paycheck and establishing an automatic transfer so that part of each paycheck goes straight into your savings account.
  63. I always enjoy the process, meeting somebody new and spending time with them and becoming friends with them. That has always been the joy of ‘Strictly’ for me, so I enjoy every year.
  64. I always entertain the notion that I’m wrong, or that I’ll have to revise my opinion. Most of the time that feels good; sometimes it really hurts and is embarrassing.
  65. I always feel I’m blessed, you know. I thank God for letting me use his voice. That’s how I see it.
  66. I always feel like I could look better. I’m, like, the worst.
  67. I always feel over-appreciated but underestimated.
  68. I always feel that art in general and acting in particular should make the audience a little uncomfortable, to slap them and wake them up.
  69. I always feel that I am writing for somebody who is bright but impatient. Someone who doesn’t have unlimited time. That is my sense of the reader. So I have got to get to the point.
  70. I always feel that when I come to Edinburgh, in many ways I am coming home.
  71. I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic.
  72. I always felt and still feel that fairy tales have an emotional truth that is so deep that there are few things that really rival them.
  73. I always felt caged, closed in, like I was punching at things that weren’t there. I always had too much energy for the room I was in.
  74. I always felt more comfortable with a full face of makeup.
  75. I always felt really lucky that I only lost my legs, because it could’ve been so much worse.
  76. I always felt rock and roll was very, very wholesome music.
  77. I always felt that if I was going to do a movie, I wanted it to be authentic.
  78. I always find power in struggles. You end up a lot happier that way.
  79. I always find something to keep me busy.
  80. I always focused on being an actor. I did stand-up briefly, but I also did a lot of dramatic work. But since I’ve been on ‘The Daily Show,’ people think I’m a comedian. That’s not how I see myself.
  81. I always get criticized for my clothing because I like wearing jeans and T-shirts. There’s nothing wrong with dressing sexy. It’s just I don’t want to be anything that I’m not. I’m not here to be a fashion icon. I am here to make songs.
  82. I always gravitate towards characters that are so opposite of me.
  83. I always gravitate towards the independent side of things, just because those are the stories I always fall in love with, but you don’t really get paid, and living in Los Angeles is expensive, and I have a mortgage to pay. So it’s good to jump onto a studio film and then in all my other time do small passion projects.
  84. I always had a knack for improvisation. I can write down the notes I play, but never really had a proper academic musical background. I suppose I’m blessed and cursed by the fact I have that freedom.
  85. I always had a larger view. I’m interested in real life – my family, my friends. I have tried never to define myself by my success, whatever that is. My happiness is way beyond roles and awards.
  86. I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.
  87. I always had a tremendous amount of rage about the business, and I thought turning that into comedy was healthy.
  88. I always had that sense of being censored for the things that I thought. Why is it wrong to embroider your pants, or paint with acrylics on your clothing? Why is that weird? Isn’t it weirder to want to be like everyone else?
  89. I always have a full-length mirror next to the camera when I’m doing publicity stills. That way, I know how I look.
  90. I always have breakfast, say, scrambled egg whites, a vegetable smoothie, or whole-grain cereal with low-fat milk. For lunch and dinner, I eat a lot of fish and vegetables. And throughout the day, I try to stay hydrated.
  91. I always have considered Michael Keaton to be a phenomenal actor because he navigates drama and comedy.
  92. I always have Moleskine notebooks on my desk. I am a big journaler. Every day I write down where I went, who I spoke to and what it was all about. Richard Branson told me to do that.
  93. I always have several books on the go at any one moment, so it’s no good you asking ‘What’s on the bedside table at the moment, Emma?’ because often I can’t even see the table!
  94. I always hear myself saying, ‘She’s a beauty!’ or ‘He’s a beauty!’ or ‘What a beauty!’ but I never know what I’m talking about.
  95. I always invest my own money in the companies that I create. I don’t believe in the whole thing of just using other people’s money. I don’t think that’s right. I’m not going to ask other people to invest in something if I’m not prepared to do so myself.
  96. I always kept a diary – not a diary like, ‘Dear Diary, we got up at 5 A.M., and I wore the weird hair again and that white dress! Hi-yeee!’ I’d just write.
  97. I always knew from that moment, from the time I found myself at home in that little segregated library in the South, all the way up until I walked up the steps of the New York City library, I always felt, in any town, if I can get to a library, I’ll be OK. It really helped me as a child, and that never left me.
  98. I always knew I didn’t want kids, and I didn’t want to get married.
  99. I always knew I wanted to be a performance artist.
  100. I always knew I wanted to be a technologist, so I went to Duke and got a degree in computer science and electrical engineering. Really, I thought my goal in life was to be an inventor, a problem solver, so I thought I needed a Ph.D. to be good at inventions, but it turns out that you don’t.
  101. I always knew I wanted to be in films but didn’t want anyone to taunt my parents. So I excelled in studies. I was a topper in school and college, so when I decided to become a model, people said, ‘Oh your daughter is modeling,’ so at least my parents could say, ‘Yeah but she also came first in class.’
  102. I always knew I wanted to be in front of the camera. But even after 10 years behind the scenes at CBS News producing live segments, celebrity profiles, and breaking news, I still hadn’t been given the chance to be on TV.
  103. I always knew I would be successful. So there was no element of surprise.
  104. I always knew I would sing. I just didn’t know if I would be successful or not. But I sang at school, I sang at parties, I sang at church. Everyone always asked me to sing. I’d be playing football with my friends, and my parents would ask me to sing for their guests. I was never very happy about that because I wanted to play football.
  105. I always knew that St. Jude was an amazing organization but meeting the kids and seeing how the hospital works first hand was truly beautiful. It doesn’t feel like a regular hospital all dreary and sad. It’s a colorful, beautiful, comfortable, fun place to live and the energy is wonderful.
  106. I always like to break out and address the audience. In ‘The History Boys’, for instance, without any ado, the boys will suddenly turn and talk to the audience and then go back into the action. I find it more adventurous doing it in prose than on the stage, but I like being able to make the reader suddenly sit up.
  107. I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.
  108. I always like to see if the art across the street is better than mine.
  109. I always like to take my time and examine the two candidates, see not only the two candidates but the policies they will bring in, the people they will bring in, who they might appoint to the Supreme Court, and look at the whole range of issues before making a decision.
  110. I always like to tell a story.
  111. I always liked characters that were more grounded in reality.
  112. I always liked jazz. And my people liked the old blues, race records and the doo-wop and all that.
  113. I always liked my teachers, and I was in a lot of after-school projects. I was a Girl Scout until my senior year, when I couldn’t be a Girl Scout anymore. I was in clubs like Junior Achievement, and I ran track and field. My grades were good, but then toward 11th grade they were nothing. I always went to summer school.
  114. I always look at it that I work with my employees as opposed to them working for me.
  115. I always look back to my first Olympic medal in 2004 in Athens. I was very new to the sport, and it was my first big win at the Olympics.
  116. I always looked up to Slash from Guns N’ Roses, and I always pictured myself being a rock star and playing the guitar, just going crazy.
  117. I always loved Michelle Kwan’s outfits. Most of them were designed by Vera Wang, and they’re just so simple, but the fabric that they used and the way that it was sewn together look so elegant and rich. You could tell that time had been put into it. It wasn’t just another spandex, stucco-covered costume.
  118. I always loved music and was drawn to it and affected by it. But it wasn’t until I got to San Diego that I started exploring music more.
  119. I always loved Sam Cooke, because he seemed very versatile. He sang gospel, soul, blues, pop music.
  120. I always loved Sid Caesar and all the people on his program.
  121. I always loved smokestack industry, and I love towns or cities that have grown up around factories.
  122. I always loved that old song ‘Banks of the Ohio’ – it was always such a man’s song, so I’ve always wanted to record it.
  123. I always make my dreams into goals.
  124. I always map out how to get a good eight or nine hours of sleep before I even start my day. And my rule is to put my phone on silent when I go to bed; that way, no texts or emails can disturb me.
  125. I always mean what I say but I don’t always say what I mean.
  126. I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself.
  127. I always play women I would date.
  128. I always put myself out there. I’m not afraid to commit to something.
  129. I always quit at three when my kids come home from school so I feel pretty spoiled.
  130. I always rewrite each day up to the point where I stopped. When it is all finished, naturally you go over it. You get another chance to correct and rewrite when someone else types it, and you see it clean in type. The last chance is in the proofs. You’re grateful for these different chances.
  131. I always rib people, but nobody ever gives me a hard time. I don’t know why. Maybe they’re afraid of what I might say. There’s probably a lesson in that somewhere, but I don’t know what it is.
  132. I always say I write my own novels and the characters don’t take control of me, but in fact, I look at the characters in the early stages and I think, ‘What is he or she like,’ and they slowly come together and they become the person they are.
  133. I always say Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is my biggest influence. But for painters, I like many, many painters, but I love Francis Bacon the most, and Edward Hopper.
  134. I always say snowboarding saved my life. It gave me a reason to focus on the future; it gave me something to be passionate about.
  135. I always say that kindness is the greatest beauty that you can have.
  136. I always say that people should not rush to change religions. There is real value in finding the spiritual resources you need in your home religion.
  137. I always say that the real success of Wine Library wasn’t due to the videos I posted, but to the hours I spent talking to people online afterward, making connections and building relationships.
  138. I always say that women are very strong and men are powerful. But beauty gives you both strength and power. I never think of it. It’s just one of those natural things. It’s the only thing I know how to do.
  139. I always say the classier cousin of ‘Anchorman’ is ‘Mad Men,’ because when you really look at it, why do people really love Don Draper in ‘Mad Men?’ He’s just a terrible guy. But we know why he’s terrible, and I think that’s really key to why you can be sympathetic to a character.
  140. I always say the next big thing will happen in unexpected places – up and coming cities that aren’t necessarily boom markets.
  141. I always say this about my music, and music in general: Music is like a time capsule. Each album reflects what I’m going through or what’s going on in my life at that moment.
  142. I always say when it comes to dream matches, that is not up to me: that’s up to the WWE Universe. That’s up to the fans. But there is a guy on ‘SmackDown’ that I have yet to wrestle yet that’s certainly gonna happen at some point, and that’s Randy Orton.
  143. I always say, when you’re onstage you can’t please everybody. I’m sure there are people who may not take to what I do, but that’s okay. Thank God the majority are in my corner.
  144. I always seem to get inspiration and renewed vitality by contact with this great novel land of yours which sticks up out of the Atlantic.
  145. I always shout out my dad. My artistic roots come from him. He had his own T-shirt company and taught me the trade.
  146. I always teach myself calm and visualization stuff.
  147. I always tell my kids that as soon as you have a secret, something about you that you are ashamed to have others find out, you have given other people the power to hurt you by exposing you.
  148. I always tell people I want to see the world through His eyes, and I want people to see Him in me.
  149. I always tell people that religious institutions and political institutions should be separate. So while I’m telling people this, I myself continue with them combined. Hypocrisy!
  150. I always think I look better after a yoga class. It’s the same as a massage. We look so amazing after a massage because we’re relaxed.
  151. I always think, if I were an editor, and I was invited to a show, and I would have to wait for 45 minutes in the dark or in the cold or in the heat, maybe I would like to have a fresh drink or a piece of chocolate.
  152. I always think it’s kind of fun to get to the airport early, check in, and then go and have a meal before getting on the plane.
  153. I always think of myself as a working girl.
  154. I always think that art is a form of sacrifice.
  155. I always think that struggle can bring out the best in people – or the worst.
  156. I always think that you should be striving to write your best song.
  157. I always think – when I get mad, and people say, ‘Don’t be the angry black woman’ – it’s like, well, why not? There’s so much to be angry about.
  158. I always thought communism was crap, really.
  159. I always thought George Bush was more oblivious than mean, but oblivious can quickly go to mean.
  160. I always thought, ‘I could go the route of saying some controversial things and have it explode, just do it like that. But I don’t do that.’ But of course, it wasn’t really up to me.
  161. I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say ‘figment.’
  162. I always thought, ‘I’m on my own, and that’s the way it should be.’
  163. I always thought of myself as a character actor. I never thought of myself as a leading man.
  164. I always thought that if I made it big or got successful at what I had started out to do, that I wanted to come back to my part of the country and do something great, something that would bring a lot of jobs into this area.
  165. I always told myself that if I was going to be given a voice, I might as well say something worth listening to and not something that’s just going to feed people stupidity.
  166. I always treat myself to one meal on Sundays when I can have whatever I want. Usually it’s pizza, which is my favorite indulgence.
  167. I always try to be myself. Ever since I was an introverted kid, I’d get on stage and be able to break out of my shell.
  168. I always try to be smart. I try to treat all the money I’m making like it’s the last time I’m going to make it.
  169. I always try to do better than I have before, so I think it would be good to break the world record.
  170. I always try to improve, to find new ways of expressing myself, to keep looking for truth and originality.
  171. I always used the free room that the G.D.R. allowed me… There was no shadow over my childhood.
  172. I always used to watch ‘The Daily Show,’ and there were all these comedic geniuses there. I didn’t know if I was going to be hired full time or not. At the beginning, I was sort of hired as a part time, on and off guy. When I first got hired – it was August 2006 – and I was working on and off, and they’d call me whenever.
  173. I always want more.
  174. I always want to give more than I gave yesterday.
  175. I always want to have more dancers in my company.
  176. I always want to stay focused on who I am, even as I’m discovering who I am.
  177. I always want to think of myself as an underdog.
  178. I always wanted a great love affair: something that feels big and full, really honest, and enough. No moment should feel slight, false, or a little off. For me, it had to be everything.
  179. I always wanted ‘Sideways’ to be like a great 1960s Italian film.
  180. I always wanted to act, but it was not because of the influence of my family. I just wanted to act since I was four! I used to watch a lot of movies. One of the things that attracted me were the songs picturised on ‘Govinda’ and Karisma Kapoor, who would dance in the middle of the street!
  181. I always wanted to be a blonde, and it was really cool to do that for a while.
  182. I always wanted to be a comedic actor – that’s what I wanted from the job – to do comedy and to create my own comedy. But I still love doing stand-up and will probably be doing it forever. I’d love to be an old guy who can’t really walk, can’t really stand-up, and I have to sit on the stool and tell jokes.
  183. I always wanted to be a designer. I read books on fashion from the age of 12.
  184. I always wanted to be a model, never an actress. I would see children in ads and stuff and wanted to be like them.
  185. I always wanted to be a Sixer… I always wanted to finish my career as a Sixer.
  186. I always wanted to be a stand-up comedian, even as a kid. Me and my dad would watch ‘Evening at the Improv’ on A&E.
  187. I always wanted to be an anchorman, but after college I wound up working behind the scenes at CBS News for 10 years.
  188. I always wanted to be loved.
  189. I always wanted to be more validated as a human being, as a person, than I was as a player. I think that was a really hard balance for me.
  190. I always wanted to be part of a movie that creates a different world.
  191. I always wanted to get into politics, but I was never light enough to make the team.
  192. I always wanted to get into rock music so I could cover up my real personality, change my voice, and create a false self to hide behind.
  193. I always wanted to have a headphone line but I feel like I’m going to do more than just headphones eventually, but we want to wake the world up right now with this.
  194. I always wanted to know what I’d face next, even though that was maybe a bit detrimental to spontaneity. Structuring my life and avoiding chaos was more important.
  195. I always wanted to make people feel something.
  196. I always wanted to play a mental patient. I was fascinated with playing crazy people in college, and I don’t know if I ever quite perfected it.
  197. I always wanted to sing English songs, ever since I was, like, 10 or 12 years old.
  198. I always wear a dinner jacket. I never have this definition of what goes for the morning or the evening or what works for the weekend.
  199. I always wished for this, but it’s almost turning into more of a nightmare than a dream.
  200. I always wished I had died, and I still wish that, because I could have gotten the whole thing over with.
  201. I always wonder about people’s history and their lives, especially people that are a little bit more distant, who obviously have had some kind of a thing, and you know there’s some reason why they’re not able to connect. It’s not because they don’t want to. They don’t have the ability.
  202. I always write ‘Magic Potion’ on my perfume bottles so when I use them, it feels magical – I make spells in the morning when I put them on.
  203. I always wrote. I wrote from when I was 12. That was therapeutic for me in those days. I wrote things to get them out of feeling them, and onto paper. So writing in a way saved me, kept me company. I did the traditional thing with falling in love with words, reading books and underlining lines I liked and words I didn’t know.
  204. I always wrote poetry and stuff like that, so putting songs together wasn’t that spectacular.
  205. I am 73 years old. I’ve seen everything. I’ve met the kings, the queens, the presidents, I’ve been around the world. I have one thing that I would like to do: to try to reach peace.
  206. 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.
  207. I am a big believer in education, because when I grew up in Austria – when I grew up in Austria I had a great education. I had great teachers.
  208. I am a big believer in visualization. I run through my races mentally so that I feel even more prepared.
  209. I am a big proponent of character arcs that show us how people change over time.
  210. I am a bit evangelical, I know, but performance-capture is still misunderstood.
  211. I am a bit of a solitude person – a solitary personality. I like being on my own. I don’t have any major friendships or relationships with people.
  212. I am a businessman at the end of the day. I have grown up with Excel sheets. I start out writing my novel with spreadsheets and the milestones in each chapter highlighted.
  213. I am a Christian, and since the age of five I have been singing… chanting hymns containing the word ‘Hosanna.’
  214. I am a Christian. That obliges me to be a Communist.
  215. I am a clinical zombie.
  216. I am a communicator; that seems to be my natural place. And I’ll always be passionate about the world, because it’s so bonkers.
  217. I am a dangerous man when turned loose with a typewriter.
  218. I am a deeply religious nonbeliever – this is a somewhat new kind of religion.
  219. I am a deeply superficial person.
  220. I am a filmmaker. That is all I’ve ever been. You know, Martin Scorsese makes films about the mob. And I make movies about food.
  221. I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.
  222. I am a firm believer that one way to become enlightened is to be so relaxed, as relaxed as you possibly can be.
  223. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. The Bible is my primary way of knowing Him and what it means to follow Him. And I am a pastor, and I teach and preach the Bible to my congregation every week. But the Bible is not a manufacturer’s handbook. Neither is it a science textbook nor a guidebook for public policy.
  224. I am a friend when I need to be a friend, a father when I need to be a father, a musician when music calls. I switch roles accordingly.
  225. I am a good listener. I think that came from my schooling.
  226. I am a historian. I do a lot of research, and I try to get it right.
  227. I am a huge romantic at heart.
  228. I am a just man.
  229. I am a late discoverer of ‘Friday Night Lights.’ I cry every episode at least once. I love to cry – happy, emotional tears. I just love it.
  230. I am a leader by default, only because nature does not allow a vacuum.
  231. I am a little suspicious of industry paradigms. I feel like so many movies and TV shows feel so familiar because of over-reliance on these paradigms.
  232. I am a Maoist sympathiser. I’m not a Maoist ideologue, because the communist movements in history have been just as destructive as capitalism.
  233. I am a Marxist Leninist and I will be one until the last day of my life.
  234. I am a melancholy type of person.
  235. I am a Minnesotan, and not just because I root for the Vikings and the Twins. I like the Minnesota-nice sensibility. I like the liberal tradition; I like the Hubert Humphrey tradition fighting for civil rights.
  236. I am a misanthrope and yet utterly benevolent, have more than one screw loose yet am a super-idealist who digests philosophy more efficiently than food.
  237. I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Presence.
  238. I am a Netflix/DVR junkie. I don’t like to watch TV without a plan.
  239. I am a not exactly a gadget freak and have the regular phones. But I keep multiple phones because if there’s a network issue in one, then I can use another one.
  240. I am a part of all that I have met.
  241. I am a part of everything that I have read.
  242. I am a part of the old school where I feel that purity of the language should be retained. But English is a constantly evolving language where new words are being added to the dictionary, so I don’t see any harm in experimenting with the language. Only poor editing standards need to be improved.
  243. I am a particular fan of integrative exercise – that is, exercise that occurs in the course of doing some productive activity such as gardening, bicycling to work, doing home improvement projects and so on.
  244. I am a pastor, and I teach and preach the Bible to my congregation every week. But the Bible is not a manufacturer’s handbook. Neither is it a science textbook nor a guidebook for public policy.
  245. I am a peace supporting Jew.
  246. I am a poet; I am not a worker. I need to be free.
  247. I am a preacher. I’m involved in many other things, but, mainly, I preach. And I love it!
  248. I am a private person. I don’t need a lot of company. And I find it really, really difficult to talk about myself.
  249. I am a profound pessimist both about life and about human relations and about politics and ecology. Humans are inadequate and stupid creatures who sooner or later make a mess, and those who are trying to do good do a lot more damage than those who are muddling along.
  250. I am a pure-blooded Polish nobleman without a single drop of bad blood – certainly not German blood.
  251. I am a really sensitive person.
  252. I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.
  253. I am a romantic fool, no doubt about that.
  254. I am a Senator against my wishes and feelings, which I regret more than any other of my life.
  255. I am a sentimental guy, and occasionally, that lump in my throat when I speak has stopped my tongue from working.
  256. I am a shy person.
  257. I am a simple Buddhist monk – no more, no less.
  258. I am a simple man, though my wife says I am complicated. I’ll trust her on that one.
  259. I am a slow walker, but I never walk back.
  260. I am a socialist, and everyone knows it.
  261. I am a socialist; of course I am a socialist. To hold a vision that society can be fundamentally different, to believe that all people can be equal – that is not a new idea.
  262. I am a Soviet man, and Yeltsin is a Soviet man – maybe our grandchildren will be different.
  263. I am a sports enthusiast, and if given an opportunity, I want to be a sportsman, even today. I want to promote the sport that is indigenous to India. Kabaddi is a matter of national pride. Why can’t cricket, hockey, football and kabaddi be given equal platforms and co-exist? I believe that can happen.
  264. I am a sprinter, and I love to go fast. It’s very difficult for me to be patient and follow a race strategy or conserve energy.
  265. I am a spy in the house of me. I report back from the front lines of the battle that is me. I am somewhat nonplused by the event that is my life.
  266. I am a step mother, so how children deal with divorce is something I’ve witnessed first hand and thought about a lot.
  267. I am a strong believer that without justice, there is no peace. No lasting peace, anyway.
  268. I am a tender-hearted person, and I feel everything to the ninth degree.
  269. I am a thing of beauty.
  270. I am a typed director. If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.
  271. I am a vegetarian, and I sort of aspire to vegan-hood. So far I’ve noticed no difference at all in my climbing, but I feel a bit healthier overall. Though that’s only because I’m eating more fruits and vegetables. I think the whole protein thing is overhyped. Most Americans eat far more than we need.
  272. I am a very aesthetic person.
  273. I am a very basic person. I still believe marriage happens only once, and you have to sustain it.
  274. I am a very discreet human when it comes to other people.
  275. I am a very eco-friendly chef but a guilty air traveller.
  276. I am a very lazy man, so, for me, the dream is to be at home on the chair with my family.
  277. I am a very private person. I don’t like to talk about things till someone asks about them.
  278. I am a very private person. I still get shy at times.
  279. I am a very romantic person, and I love ‘love’ – however cheesy that sounds!
  280. I am a village boy, and Amsterdam for me was always the big town.
  281. I am able to hang with the hardest, the baddest, the worst, and I’m able to hang with the most proper and be at ease. I’m able to hang with any skin colour, any belief. I just fit in everywhere.
  282. I am able to play monsters well. I understand monsters. I understand madmen.
  283. I am above the weakness of seeking to establish a sequence of cause and effect, between the disaster and the atrocity.
  284. I am absolutely a Giants fan and I’m a Dynasty baby so I was a 49ers fan for a long time.
  285. I am actually a huge supporter of the Canadian athletes, and they are all really nice people.
  286. I am actually talking about possibly adapting ‘The Boys,’ by Garth Ennis, which would not be a comedy, but an action movie with comedy elements to it.
  287. I am afraid we must make the world honest before we can honestly say to our children that honesty is the best policy.
  288. I am against nature. I don’t dig nature at all. I think nature is very unnatural. I think the truly natural things are dreams, which nature can’t touch with decay.
  289. I am against the death penalty.
  290. I am against the idea of the end, that everything culminates in paradise or judgment.
  291. I am Al Gore, and I used to be the next president of the United States of America.
  292. I am all for everyone having a voice; I just don’t think everyone has earned the microphone. And that’s what the Internet has done.
  293. I am all for healthy living and maintaining a fit lifestyle.
  294. I am alone; I am always alone no matter what.
  295. I am always anxious.
  296. I am always busy, which is perhaps the chief reason why I am always well.
  297. I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught.
  298. I am always trying to put myself inside: Every dress I do, I think, ‘If I were a woman, would I wear it?’
  299. I am amazed at the wonders of technology and am grateful for the ways in which we are able to use it to share the Gospel around the world.
  300. I am American. If you drop me in Seoul, I don’t think I’m going to thrive there.
  301. I am an actor and mouldable enough to do films like ‘2 States,’ ‘Gunday,’ and ‘Finding Fanny.’
  302. I am an adamant feminist. It never occurred to me to take my husband’s name when we married. I am a supporter of abortion rights, of equal pay for equal work, of the rights of women prisoners, of all the time-honored feminist causes, and then some.
  303. I am an advocate for going to the doctor and going every year. I make sure that part of the checkup is spent talking about my heart with my doctor, and getting my numbers checked, and discussing the results. And I make sure that I understand the answers to my questions.
  304. I am an affirmative action hire.
  305. I am an aging Girl Scout.
  306. I am an American, steeped in American values. But I know on an emotional level what it means to be of the Chinese culture.
  307. I am an ardent recycler. I would like to think that it works. I don’t know whether it does or not.
  308. I am an Aries. Although I do not believe in astrology, I think this is exactly the right sign to have been born under.
  309. I am an artist first and a photographer second.
  310. I am an artist, you understand? For me, a picture is like poetry. When you make art, this is not coming from an intellectual place. It’s coming from the deep side of your unconscious, your soul.
  311. I am an Epicurean. I consider the genuine (not the imputed) doctrines of Epicurus as containing everything rational in moral philosophy which Greek and Roman leave to us.
  312. I am an honest artist.
  313. I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.
  314. I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.
  315. I am an optimist of the first order.
  316. I am an ordinary man who worked hard to develop the talent I was given. I believed in myself, and I believe in the goodness of others.
  317. I am angry about the mammoth, out-of-control social welfare entitlement programs from Washington, D.C., that were supposed to solve our problems. The obvious truth is these impractical, politically motivated programs have irreparably damaged the fabric of our black society and community.
  318. I am at peace with all my actions.
  319. I am at peace with God. My conflict is with Man.
  320. I am beautiful, famous and gorgeous.
  321. I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built up on the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think.
  322. I am bipolar, and I am proud. And that is why I wanted to write a book. To shine a light on mental illness, to be vulnerable about the days I let it take control and paid dearly for it, and to tell anyone fighting a similar battle: You are not alone. You are not broken.
  323. I am black, and there’s no getting around that, but being black doesn’t define every aspect of my life.
  324. I am boring. I’m fine with boring.
  325. I am bullish on the global development. I am bullish on billions of people getting out of poverty.
  326. I am called a dog because I fawn on those who give me anything, I yelp at those who refuse, and I set my teeth in rascals.
  327. I am capable of being idle.
  328. I am certainly not an authority on love because there are no authorities on love, just those who’ve had luck with it and those who haven’t.
  329. I am certainly not one of those who need to be prodded. In fact, if anything, I am the prod.
  330. I am certainly not politically affiliated with Mr. Obama.
  331. I am committed to ensuring San Francisco remains a center for tech and the innovation capital of the world.
  332. I am committed to ovarian cancer research on a national level and in my community in the Carolinas. It is important to me to know the women that are true fighters of this difficult disease.
  333. I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.
  334. I am confident I will set foot again in Tibet in my lifetime.
  335. I am confident that nobody… will accuse me of selfishness if I ask to spend time, while I am still in good health, with my family, my friends and also with myself.
  336. I am confident that partnering my Dollywood Company with a great company like Gaylord will create something truly special.
  337. I am conscious about not getting typecast, but obviously I have to keep picking up great roles so that I don’t get typecast.
  338. I am conscious of trying to stretch the boundaries of non-fiction writing. It’s always surprised me how little attention many non-fiction writers pay to the formal aspects of their work.
  339. I am constantly re-evaluating my goals and trying to strike items from my to-do list that aren’t critical.
  340. I am consumed, or I have been consumed, with these issues of motherhood and the way we act out societal expectations and roles. So both my nonfiction and my fiction have been pretty much exclusively about that.
  341. I am contesting elections since 1952, but never did I throw mud.
  342. I am crushing so hard on Amy Schumer. Women like her who have chosen to stand up for themselves and face the bullies are being so embraced.
  343. I am deeply concerned that, without peace and a two-state solution, the Jewish and democratic nature of Israel is in danger. That’s why I have opposed Israel’s settlement policy since 1973, and that’s why I have favored a two-state solution since 1967.
  344. I am deeply grateful to the citizens of Sarajevo and the Sarajevo Canton assembly for bestowing upon me this incredible honor of citizenship. I am so proud to now be a part of such an extraordinary part of the world and fellow citizen to the people I deeply love and admire.
  345. I am definitely a Type A personality, always rushing around, trying to do too much, not good at just lying on the beach. But I’m so thankful for everything I have: wonderfully supportive parents and sisters, the best husband in the world, terrific students I love teaching and hanging out with, and above all, my two amazing daughters.
  346. I am deliberate and afraid of nothing.
  347. I am disappointed because nobody is talking about food and agriculture. They’re talking about the diets of children, but they’re talking about Band-Aids. We’re not seeing a vision.
  348. I am doing what I love to do, and you cannot beat that, especially when the audience appreciates what you prepare for them. It’s very, very gratifying.
  349. I am doomed to an eternity of compulsive work. No set goal achieved satisfies. Success only breeds a new goal. The golden apple devoured has seeds. It is endless.
  350. I am drawn to Christ but I have real problems with the Catholic Church.
  351. I am driven by ingredients. My Italian heritage and French training inevitably poke through as well, guiding my techniques.
  352. I am dying from the treatment of too many physicians.
  353. I am easily satisfied with the very best.
  354. I am emboldened by my looks to say things Republican men wouldn’t.
  355. I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
  356. I am Evanescence. I am the only original member. I have basically hired the band. Evanescence has become me. It is mine and it’s exactly how I want it to be.
  357. I am excited to work with Vikas. Whenever I tell people that I am doing a film with director of ‘Queen,’ they are like, ‘Wow, good for you.’ That makes me feel really good, and I feel fortunate to be the chosen one.
  358. I am expressive but secretive about my emotions.
  359. I am fascinated by history and particularly the Victorian era.
  360. I am fearless.
  361. I am Fidel Castro and we have come to liberate Cuba.
  362. I am fiscally prudent and socially progressive. I believe in protecting a woman’s right to choose. I believe in marriage equality.
  363. I am focusing more on overseas gigs, as my international fans do not get a chance to be a part of my live concerts, as they visit India once in a blue moon.
  364. I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.
  365. I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion about the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.
  366. I am for our not having any discrimination in tax legislation.
  367. I am for people. I can’t help it.
  368. I am for registered civil partnerships.
  369. I am from the bush. The bush did not define me. I did not stay in the bush, but I never forgot where I came from.
  370. I am gay, and I’m very comfortable with it.
  371. I am glad that I do not have any children.
  372. I am going to change the world, and I’m talking to everybody in the possible world that I can get to that can help me to do that.
  373. I am going to get involved with giving back to military families.
  374. I am going to notice the lights of the earth, the sun and the moon and the stars, the lights of our candles as we march, the lights with which spring teases us, the light that is already present.
  375. I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.
  376. I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.
  377. I am grateful for – though I can’t keep up with – the flood of articles, theses, and textbooks that mean to share insight concerning the nature of poetry.
  378. I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.
  379. I am grateful to be a woman. I must have done something great in another life.
  380. I am grateful to my father for sending me to school, and that we moved from Somalia to Kenya, where I learned English.
  381. I am growing handsome very fast indeed! I expect I shall be the belle of Amherst when I reach my 17th year. I don’t doubt that I shall have perfect crowds of admirers at that age. Then how I shall delight to make them await my bidding, and with what delight shall I witness their suspense while I make my final decision.
  382. I am happy that I can challenge myself in various fields.
  383. I am happy to be alive, as long as I can paint.
  384. I am happy with all the films I’ve done. I have not become the victim of an image. I have managed to do different roles, and I am proud of that.
  385. I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.
  386. I am honored I have performed ‘Quizas Quizas Quizas’ with Jennifer Lopez, an eclectic artist who thanks to the charismatic power of her voice and to her soft sensuality, has managed to make this song particularly convincing.
  387. I am honored to be one of this year’s Urbanworld ambassadors for the festival’s 20th anniversary, joining my friend David Oyelowo. I have always had a special relationship with Urbanworld, back to my days as a festival publicist to previewing my earlier films and now as an ambassador.
  388. I am hugely honored to represent my country in the Olympics and in World Cups, and I’m grateful for all the advantages being a professional soccer player brings my way – the opportunities to see the world, the camaraderie and friendships, and more.
  389. I am humble Abraham Lincoln. I have been solicited by my friends to become a candidate for the Legislature. My politics are short and sweet, like the old woman’s dance.
  390. I am hungry for good work.
  391. I am impressed with what happens when someone stays in the same place and you took the same picture over and over and it would be different, every single frame.
  392. I am in agreement with everything my father taught me and nothing my mother taught me.
  393. I am in awe of Ruth Draper.
  394. I am, in some sense, a writer. Even though I kinda downplay the word thing, I do enjoy writing sometimes.
  395. I am in the fighting game. I don’t care about anything else. I don’t watch the news, I don’t care about politics, I don’t care about other sports. I don’t care about anything I don’t need to care about. This is my sport: it is my life. I study it; I think about it all the time. Nothing else matters.
  396. I am in the fortunate-enough position where I can be picky.
  397. I am in touch with a company that hopes to replicate my voice. However, they are not replicating my original voice – if they did that, I would sound like a man in his 20s, which would be very strange! They are actually trying to replicate the synthesizer that sits on my wheelchair.
  398. I am incrementally a pessimist, but I see the international debate that Edward Snowden has engendered, and I think this is exactly where the discussion should be. So, I would say I’m more optimistic than pessimistic.
  399. I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.
  400. I am Indian, and I’m proud of it. Indian life is mythologically rich and powerful.
  401. I am insecure about tomorrow. Will I get another job? Will it be appreciated? I will pursue acting for as long as I have a face and body that is acceptable to the people, but I still worry that if I don’t do better tomorrow, it will all go away.
  402. I am interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos-especially activity that seems to have no meaning. It seems to me to be the road toward freedom… Rather than starting inside, I start outside and reach the mental through the physical.
  403. I am interested in being in pictures that I would like to see.
  404. I am interested in levels of brain discourse. How articulate are the voices in your head? You know, there’s a different voice for the phone, and a different voice if you’re talking in bed. When you’re starting off with a narrator, it’s interesting to think, where is their voice coming from, what part of their brain?
  405. I am intrigued by women I have conversations with.
  406. I am invariably late for appointments – sometimes as much as two hours. I’ve tried to change my ways but the things that make me late are too strong, and too pleasing.
  407. I am involved in a freedom ride protesting the loss of the minority rights belonging to the few remaining earthbound stars. All we demanded was our right to twinkle.
  408. ‘I am’ is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that ‘I do’ is the longest sentence?
  409. I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions. Occasionally, I find an answer.
  410. I am just an artist.
  411. I am just one human being.
  412. I am just one of many thousands called to be an evangelist.
  413. I am just too much.
  414. I am like a man so busy in letting rooms in one end of his house, that he can’t stop to put out the fire that is burning the other.
  415. I am like a woman. I have a woman inside me.
  416. I am like the rain: I go where I’m needed.
  417. I am literally obsessed with Lena Dunham. She’s, like, my favorite person in the world. I follow her on Twitter; I read her every day.
  418. I am looking forward to going to Dubai because it gives us an opportunity to interact with each other. We can sit and enjoy each other’s company. We can go out for a walk without worrying about shooting schedules.
  419. I am lucky, that is all. Lucky because there are a lot of people – producers, directors, people who buy tickets – who put confidence in me.
  420. I am married to work.
  421. I am mentally ill. I can say that. I am not ashamed of that. I survived that, I’m still surviving it, but bring it on. Better me than you.
  422. I am mindful not only of preserving executive powers for myself, but for predecessors as well.
  423. I am more and more convinced that man is a dangerous creature and that power, whether vested in many or a few, is ever grasping, and like the grave, cries, ‘Give, give.’
  424. I am mortified to be told that, in the United States of America, the sale of a book can become a subject of inquiry, and of criminal inquiry too.
  425. I am much pleased to find how very well I stand work & how my powers of attention & continued effort increase.
  426. I am my own muse, the subject I know best.
  427. I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong. I can not remember when I did not so think and feel.
  428. I am neither such a great songwriter or such a great singer that the world must hear my album. There’s just no point to make.
  429. I am never going to have anything more to do with politics or politicians. When this war is over I shall confine myself entirely to writing and painting.
  430. I am never proud to participate in violence, yet I know that each of us must care enough for ourselves that we can be ready and able to come to our own defence when and wherever needed.
  431. I am never so happy as when I am really engaged in good earnest, & it makes me must wonderfully cheerful & merry at other times, which is curious & very satisfactory.
  432. I am never writing a breakup record again, by the way. I’m done with being a bitter witch.
  433. I am nice, yeah. I’m cool. But I’m no push-over. And if someone gets one over on me, they’ve done it when my eyes were closed, and it doesn’t happen twice.
  434. I am no longer afraid to say anything.
  435. I am not a bloody ghoda running a race that you give me a tag. I am competitive, and the reason for that is that I want to do the best films.
  436. I am not a commercial industry creator. I don’t believe in making art to make money.
  437. I am not a communist and neither is the revolutionary movement.
  438. I am not a consecutive writer.
  439. I am not a depressive person at all, but I reflect a lot on my life, and life in general, from the perspective of death.
  440. I am not a depressive person at all.
  441. I am not a foodie, thank goodness. I will eat pretty much anything. A lot of my friends are getting incredibly fussy about food and I see it as a bit of an affliction.
  442. I am not a good cue card reader.
  443. I am not a joke-teller. Stand-up, I couldn’t do.
  444. I am not a man. I am not a human being inside. I am not that. I don’t know what I am, but I am not that.
  445. I am not a National Insurance Number, I am a free man!
  446. I am not a normal person. I am living in a normal body, but my mind is not normal.
  447. I am not a perfect friend, and it is impossible not to rebuff or be rebuffed if you move about the world.
  448. I am not a performer but occasionally I deliberately work in a public context. Some sculptures need the movement of people around them to work.
  449. I am not a person who yells at all, but I realized that I have always felt so good after doing the Tarzan yell, after doing Charo, or screaming as Eunice.
  450. I am not a politician by nature, but I will say I think there need to be more women in FIFA, and I would be open to having those conversations when the time is right.
  451. I am not a televangelist.
  452. I am not a victim of emotional conflicts. I am human.
  453. I am not a vivacious person in real. I hate smiling. I hate doing small talk.
  454. I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.
  455. I am not afraid of saying something and going and pursuing it. That’s it. I see it in my mind. I say it out loud. I go and do it.
  456. I am not against all forms of high-tech medicine. Drugs and surgeries have a secure place in the treatment of serious health conditions. But modern American medicine treats almost every health condition as if it were an emergency.
  457. I am not against migration. It is simply pragmatic to restrict migration, while at the same time encouraging integration and fighting discrimination. I support the idea of the free movement of goods, people, money and jobs in Europe.
  458. I am not against two-heroine films.
  459. I am not an academic who happens to have written a novel. I am a novelist who happens to be quite good academically.
  460. I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.
  461. I am not an expert in this field but I do try to keep up to date with the Bundesliga. And I do follow World Cups and European Championships more closely.
  462. I am not an over-the-top kind of person.
  463. I am not anti-English, and I never was.
  464. I am not as confident as the characters I play. I am a bit aloof. I am uncomfortable in social situations.
  465. I am not as partisan as people think I am.
  466. I am not aware how you succeed politically when you insult women, who far more than men consistently provide you with great margins of support.
  467. I am not bound to please thee with my answer.
  468. I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
  469. I am not conscious of the fact that something special should be done for me.
  470. I am not designed to come second or third. I am designed to win.
  471. I am not gay, but if I were, I would be the first one running out of the closet.
  472. I am not going to give in to people who try to exploit me because of my celebrity status.
  473. I am not going to Heaven because I have preached to great crowds or read the Bible many times. I’m going to Heaven just like the thief on the cross who said in that last moment: ‘Lord, remember me.’
  474. I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.
  475. I am not in favour of quotas. Just put the best person into the job. It is not about gender; it is about experience, leadership and vision.
  476. I am not in the least eloquent or fluent with languages. My writing on social media is quite pedestrian. But even if it was near any acceptability, I would not be in a position to pen a script or a book.
  477. I am not influenced by the techniques or fashions of any other motion picture company.
  478. I am not interested in perfection, and neither are the women who wear my clothes.
  479. I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights.
  480. I am not interested in power for power’s sake, but I’m interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.
  481. I am not like Hitchcock, directing the reaction of the public or the audience. I don’t like that. I think this is some kind of fascism – ‘You need to react like that.’ No. No. It’s not like this; everyone needs to react as he can.
  482. I am not made for politics because I am incapable of wanting or accepting the death of the adversary.
  483. I am not one of the new media experts working all the time with my computers and the PowerPoints and things of that sort.
  484. I am not one of those people who will ever be comfortable mocking or making caricatures of the stereotypes attached to any community.
  485. I am not one who was born in the possession of knowledge; I am one who is fond of antiquity, and earnest in seeking it there.
  486. I am not only a pacifist but a militant pacifist. I am willing to fight for peace. Nothing will end war unless the people themselves refuse to go to war.
  487. I am not part of the problem. I am a Republican.
  488. I am not particularly religious. But I think we do face the question of where God is, why we are created and where does life go, why we exist. That sort of thing. And it is very hard to talk about it these days, because it cannot be proven. It is hard to discuss it rationally.
  489. I am not ready to back away from my views.
  490. I am not really into buying a lot of expensive things.
  491. I am not saying do not give people equal health services but do not pretend that giving more money for diabetes or chronic diseases means you are going to deal with the origins of health inequalities.
  492. I am not solicitous to examine particularly everything here, which indeed could not be done in fifty years, because my desire is to make all possible discoveries, and return to your Highnesses, if it please our Lord, in April.
  493. I am not someone who believes I am going to find a historical scoop.
  494. I am not someone who thinks that a million products will mean that you’ll look perfect.
  495. I am not stroppy at all.
  496. I am not stupid. I am a very bright guy. I know that in the fighting game, you get people who get brain damage and do themselves long-term harm.
  497. I am not sure how much good is done by moralising about fairy tales. This can be unsubtle – telling children that virtue will be rewarded, when in fact it is mostly simply the fact of being the central character that ensures a favourable outcome. Fairy tales are not, on the whole, parables.
  498. I am not sure if India is the right place to promote such music. I don’t think there are still enough people who listen to English songs.
  499. I am not the Catholic candidate for President. I am the Democratic Party’s candidate for President, who happens also to be a Catholic.
  500. I am not the first Buddha who came upon Earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time, another Buddha will arise in the world – a Holy One, a supremely enlightened One, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals.
  501. I am not the one who has to try to beat me.
  502. I am not The Rock. I am Dwayne Johnson.
  503. I am not unaware of the saying that more tears have been shed over wishes granted than wishes denied.
  504. I am not very good with relationships. With anyone. I can’t be locked up with anyone for too long.
  505. I am not worried about the deficit. It is big enough to take care of itself.
  506. I am not writing to try and convert people to fundamental Christianity. I am just trying to share my experience, strength and hope, that someone who is as messed up and neurotic and scarred and scared can be fully accepted by our dear Lord, no questions asked.
  507. I am not young but I feel young. The day I feel old, I will go to bed and stay there. J’aime la vie! I feel that to live is a wonderful thing.
  508. I am not young enough to know everything.
  509. I am nothing, not even hope.
  510. I am now standing in a mixture of cooling fluid, gasoline, and cola.
  511. I am odd-looking. I sometimes think I look like a funny Muppet.
  512. I am, of course, delighted but there was never any doubt about Sol staying.
  513. I am often accused of colluding with the British during the freedom struggle. I want to ask, how?
  514. I am often amazed at how much more capability and enthusiasm for science there is among elementary school youngsters than among college students.
  515. I am often the brunt of my own humor.
  516. I am old, but I feel very beautiful.
  517. I am only an average man but, by George, I work harder at it than the average man.
  518. I am only young once, who cares if I’m a goofball!
  519. I am open to any good script and the character I can do justice to.
  520. I am opposed to anybody making a decision for you or me or anybody else about what health care plan we should have.
  521. I am overfed, so when I am at home, I stop eating.
  522. I am particularly interested in primary education because the state of affairs in primary education in this country is a cause for concern.
  523. I am prepared for the worst, but hope for the best.
  524. I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.
  525. I am prepared to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter.
  526. I am prepared to oppose a Jim Crow army till I rot in jail.
  527. I am prepared to talk with anyone. I have no personal grudge toward anybody.
  528. I am private because I’m still figuring things out. I’m young! I’m making it up as I go!
  529. I am proud of the work we have accomplished for the citizens of Northeast Florida and our nation during my time in Congress.
  530. I am proud to be an American. Because an American can eat anything on the face of this earth as long as he has two pieces of bread.
  531. I am proud to be known to the world as the founder of the Illuminati.
  532. I am quite an early riser – I usually get up between 5.30 and 6am and take the dogs out.
  533. I am quite girly.
  534. I am quite loud and bolshie. I’m a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud.
  535. I am quite loud and bolshie.
  536. I am quite private about my personal life, and I don’t talk much about it.
  537. I am rather inclined to silence.
  538. I am really looking forward as I get older and older, to being less and less nice.
  539. I am really OK with the way I look. It’s fine. All this is transient. I mean, it’s really, you know, it changes with time, and that’s the external.
  540. I am really proud that I am one of the artists that has the opportunity to be on magazine covers and to be in the movies.
  541. I am reasonably happy, providing I keep busy.
  542. I am resilient like my mother and have the ability to face any kind of storm.
  543. I am results-oriented.
  544. I am righteous and righteously indignant, the Tea Party is righteously indignant, and our goal is to not just save the country, but quite frankly, if America goes, so goes the world, so in our desire to save the country, we are trying to save the world.
  545. I am saddened by how people treat one another and how we are so shut off from one another and how we judge one another, when the truth is, we are all one connected thing. We are all from the same exact molecules.
  546. I am scared easily, here is a list of my adrenaline – production: 1: small children, 2: policemen, 3: high places, 4: that my next movie will not be as good as the last one.
  547. I am Scottish. I am also British.
  548. I am shy to admit that I have followed the advice given all those years ago by a wise archbishop to a bewildered young man: that moments of unbelief ‘don’t matter,’ that if you return to a practice of the faith, faith will return.
  549. I am sick and tired of hearing that it is our moral duty to serve the state, because conservatives believe that it is our moral duty to serve our fellow man regardless of race, sex, affiliation or creed, and when we serve, we believe that it is the state’s duty to get out of the way.
  550. I am sick of defending myself, and I am not going to keep on doing it.
  551. I am skittish about relationships, as most of the marriages I’ve seen up close have been ruinous for one or both parties.
  552. I am so broad and big-structured that even two kilos on me can look like gaining 10 kilos, and losing two kilos can also look like shedding 10 kilos.
  553. I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.
  554. I am so impressed by UNHCR staff who live and work side by side with the refugees. It’s really remarkable.
  555. I am so organized that it’s dysfunctional. Everything has a place. I am a very visual person, so my environment is important to me. If my environment is messy, I can’t think clearly. I don’t like clutter. A clean desk is a clean mind for me.
  556. I am so proud of ‘Top Chef’ – I think it’s got great cred.
  557. I am so proud to be a Canadian.
  558. I am so scared of the ‘Paranormal Activity’ movies. I didn’t think I was going to be able to sleep.
  559. I am so spoiled. I cannot watch a show where it gets interrupted for ads. I have to TiVo it and skip through the ads, because the culture of advertising is so false and phony that I just… ugh, you know?
  560. I am so stressed that my dentist told me I am grinding my teeth due to stress. So, every evening, I get shooting pain from my jaw to my head.
  561. I am someone who doesn’t pay so much attention to how I am looking. I get so involved in what I am doing, so I overlook that.
  562. I am someone who doesn’t talk more than what is required, but I am also a fun person.
  563. I am something of a contrarian, I suppose. I feel less comfortable when everybody agrees with me. I say, ‘I better reexamine my position!’ I probably believe that the worst opinions in my court have been unanimous. Because there’s nobody on the other side pointing out all the flaws.
  564. I am sometimes sad when I hear the personal stories of Tibetan refugees who have been tortured or beaten. Some irritation, some anger comes. But it never lasts long. I always try to think at a deeper level, to find ways to console.
  565. I am sorry to say that there is too much point to the wisecrack that life is extinct on other planets because their scientists were more advanced than ours.
  566. I am sorry to think that you do not get a man’s most effective criticism until you provoke him. Severe truth is expressed with some bitterness.
  567. I am sort of drawn toward places in the world where there is struggle and conflict.
  568. I am still looking for the modern equivalent of those Quakers who ran successful businesses, made money because they offered honest products and treated their people decently… This business creed, sadly, seems long forgotten.
  569. I am still radical!
  570. I am stubborn enough to know not to change myself.
  571. I am such a bath girl: we’ve gone to some of the beautiful hotels in the world, and if there’s a shower, I’m so disappointed.
  572. I am sure of this: that no one can write a book which children will like unless he write it for himself first.
  573. I am sure that there are some single payer advocates who think the only thing worth fighting for is single payer.
  574. I am surprised by how not-adopted the video reply has been. What keeps other people from doing it, I think, is that they think a video comes across as ‘I’m cool, look at how many e-mails I get.’ That perception doesn’t scare me, because I know who I am.
  575. I am suspicious of writers who go looking for issues to address. Writers are neither preachers nor journalists. Journalists know much more than most writers about what’s going on in the world. And if you want to change things, you do journalism.
  576. I am sworn to uphold the Constitution as Andy Johnson understands it and interprets it.
  577. I am the astronaut of boxing. Joe Louis and Dempsey were just jet pilots. I’m in a world of my own.
  578. I am the character you are not supposed to like.
  579. I am the commander in chief of the United States armed forces, and Iraq is gonna have to ultimately provide for its own security.
  580. I am the Democratic Party’s candidate for president who happens also to be a Catholic. I do not speak for my church on public matters – and the church does not speak for me.
  581. I am the government.
  582. I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.
  583. I am the herald of the Great King.
  584. I am the kind of person who does not like to carry baggage. In fact, I don’t go back and listen to my own music. I believe in closing chapters and moving forward. That’s what gives me peace.
  585. I am the last person who would divide Jerusalem. I have said this many times. I don’t plan to discuss any division of Jerusalem.
  586. I am the mainstream.
  587. I am the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris, and I have enjoyed it.
  588. I am the most helpful and open up doors for everyone and I like to share.
  589. I am the only person in the world I should like to know thoroughly.
  590. I am the political psychiatrist to the stars.
  591. I am the smartest comedian in the history of the world.
  592. I am the son of a small and far-away nation and the other laureates have all come from different countries from all over the world and we all were equally received here with signs of sympathy.
  593. I am the woman I grew to be partly in spite of my mother, and partly because of the extraordinary love of her best friends, and my own best friends’ mothers, and from surrogates, many of whom were not women at all but gay men. I have loved them my entire life, even after their passing.
  594. I am the woman with the cool vintage glasses… I am the proud wife beside her husband… I am the writer who has written a new novel.
  595. I am there to entertain. I call my work high escape fiction; it’s high, it’s good – but it’s escape, and I have no delusions about that. I have no ambition to be a serious writer, whatever that means.
  596. I am thinking about launching a wine website where there is a deal and the crowd can dictate how cheap it can get.
  597. I am thrilled to write ‘The Treasure Chest,’ and to bring to life not only the childhoods of famous people from history, but also the characters of Maisie and Felix, who I hope you will fall in love with just as I have!
  598. I am tired, beloved, of chafing my heart against the want of you; of squeezing it into little ink drops, and posting it. And I scald alone, here, under the fire of the great moon.
  599. I am tired of hustling.
  600. I am to provide the public with beneficial shocks.
  601. I am too ambitious to become a house husband.
  602. I am traditional: a big note writer, and I like using the phone.
  603. I am truly a product of Hollywood in-breeding. When two celebrities mate, someone like me is the result.
  604. I am truly at my happiest not when I am writing an aria for an actor or making a grand political or social point. I am at my happiest when I’ve figured out a fun way for somebody to slip on a banana peel.
  605. I am trying to find myself. Sometimes that’s not easy.
  606. I am trying to show the world that we are all human beings and that color is not important. What is important is the quality of our work.
  607. I am turned into a sort of machine for observing facts and grinding out conclusions.
  608. I am uncomfortable talking about the things that I write. It seems unseemly to me. I have no problem at all when I see anybody else talking about the same project, but I feel my work should speak for itself.
  609. I am undoubtedly a 100 percent Bollywood product, but my heart truly lies in making music for the world and taking India global.
  610. I am very conscious about picking my roles and make sure that they are different.
  611. I am very conscious that, from the time of ‘The God of Small Things’ was published 10 years ago, we are in a different world… which needs to be written about differently, and I really very much want to do that.
  612. I am very filmi by nature.
  613. I am very happy to be working with so many talented directors and writers, who are penning scripts that are interesting for me.
  614. I am very honored and excited to have ‘Devotion’ released as the first DVD Audio disc… surround sound is amazing… The music comes alive and is so vibrant – it’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard before!
  615. I am very much a people person.
  616. I am very much opposed to abortion personally. But I don’t think it is the government’s rule.
  617. I am very practical. It’s not like I will fall in love with someone standing far away.
  618. I am very, very proud of my ability as a cook.
  619. I am very, very proud to say that I am pro-life.
  620. I am waiting for the day when the German Bundestag debates the violation of human rights in Saudi Arabia.
  621. I am well aware that there are prisoners of conscience in the Soviet Union, including some who have said they have chosen to resist the law because of religious reasons.
  622. I am whatever you say I am; if I wasn’t, then why would you say I am.
  623. I am who I am and I say what I think. I’m not putting a face on for the record.
  624. I am who I am.
  625. I am willing to work with anyone that wants to do what is best for this country.
  626. I am wired like a CEO and care a great deal about the bottom line, but I care about my customers even more than that. That’s always been my competitive advantage.
  627. I am working on the assumption that in the future there will be no Jews in Gaza.
  628. I am writing to make sure that kids don’t lose very important traits like curiosity that can drive social change because oftentimes I think parents emphasise more on doing well in school, which is important, but perhaps that sometimes comes at the cost of a child’s natural curiosity.
  629. I apologize when I’m wrong.
  630. I appreciate an audience that reacts to the music, even if they jump on stage and try to beat us up, I think that’s a fantastic reaction. I think that they’re really hearing something then.
  631. I appreciate the sacrifices my dad made. I went to a great public high school.
  632. I approach every part I’m asked to do and decide to do from exactly the same angle: who is this person, what does he want, how does he attempt to get it, and what happens to him when he doesn’t get it, or if he does?
  633. I argue thee that love is life. And life hath immortality.
  634. I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say because it’s such a beautiful animal. There you go. I think my mother is attractive, but I have photographs of her.
  635. I ask the American people not to fall victim to disinformation. There are no death panels. The Affordable Care Act cuts the deficit.
  636. I ask you, as a citizen, is it a crime to go to the temple? And if I am propagating superstition by going to the temple, then the whole country is propagating superstition.
  637. I asked certain rich men if they felt embittered. ‘How could we not?’ they said. So I asked them what caused this anguish. They blamed their wealth.
  638. I asked my daughter when she was 16, What’s the buzz on the street with the kids? She’s going, to be honest, Dad, most of my friends aren’t into Kiss. But they’ve all been told that it’s the greatest show on Earth.
  639. I asked questions when I was a stripling, and it is not my business to ask questions now, but to teach people what I have discovered.
  640. I aspire to play interesting characters.
  641. I assemble my ideas in pieces on a computer file, then gradually find a place for them on a piece of scaffolding I erect.
  642. I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage.
  643. I assisted on a lot of films outside my dad’s company. I only did two of his films.
  644. I assume the closest members of my family don’t actually want to kill me, but the truth is that I have shamed and hurt them; they have to deal with the outrage that my public statements cause, and undoubtedly some members of my clan do want to kill me for that.
  645. I attack ideas. I don’t attack people. And some very good people have some very bad ideas. And if you can’t separate the two, you gotta get another day job. You don’t want to be a judge. At least not a judge on a multi-member panel.
  646. I attempt to create a form of seriocomic entertainment to either delight, enlighten, or disgust, whichever you’d like. In terms of making motion pictures, I write and direct and act. I guess you’d say I’m a filmmaker.
  647. I attract a crowd, not because I’m an extrovert or I’m over the top or I’m oozing with charisma. It’s because I care.
  648. I attribute my success to this – I never gave or took any excuse.
  649. I auditioned for ‘Girls’ the fall after I graduated from Yale. The show has been amazing – as close to perfect as it gets!
  650. I auditioned in Chicago for Juilliard and didn’t get in. I was basically living in a back room of my parents’ house, paying rent and not doing anything with my life. I’d like to say it was patriotic to join the Marines, but it was also that I was doing nothing honorable with my life and spending too much time at McDonald’s.
  651. I.B.M. was not really bringing their best technologies to India. They were dumping old machines in the country that had been thrown away in the rest of the world 10 years before.
  652. I baked the coffee cake recipe from ‘The Joy of Cooking’ over and over again when I was a kid.
  653. I balance with prayer and music. I sing every day.
  654. I barely finish one pre-collection before I must start on another. Sales start, but I am already elsewhere creatively. The men’s show is being prepared, but we also need to think about accessories, perfumes and other items. In sum, I never stop.
  655. I barely have time to think. But the best way to stay grounded is to take it one day at a time.
  656. I barely need to reiterate what you already know: the close links that exist between our people and the people of Venezuela and Hugo Chavez, the promoter of the Bolivarian Revolution and the United Socialist Party he founded.
  657. I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing ‘chick’ music for teenage girls or something. I think, if anything, the press kind of, because of my gender and my age, tends to kind of relegate my work to this sort of special-interest group. It’s part of the cultural dynamic, I guess.
  658. I basically love classical music. I love a lot of musicians playing together and the whole culture of that, whether it’s Indian or it’s Western.
  659. I basically wrote five books with ‘Night Soldiers,’ called them novellas, and came in with a 600-page manuscript.
  660. I battled with my weight as a teenager, partly because there wasn’t the information or conversation about how to live a healthy lifestyle.
  661. I bear a charmed life.
  662. I beat a brain tumor.
  663. I became a Communist by studying capitalist political economy, and when I had some understanding of that problem, it actually seemed to me so absurd, so irrational, so inhuman, that I simply began to elaborate on my own formulas for production and distribution.
  664. I became a Conservative in the late 1980s because I could see that the Conservative party had transformed Britain’s economy and our standing in the world compared to Labour in the 1980s.
  665. I became a full-time writer in 1993 and have been very happy, insofar as anybody is, since.
  666. I became a journalist because one didn’t have to specialise.
  667. I became a journalist partly so that I wouldn’t ever have to rely on the press for my information.
  668. I became a man. Before that I was a little boy.
  669. I became a Republican in 1951, the first year I could vote.
  670. I became an actress because my mom wanted me to become an actress. It took me until my mid-30s to realize I actually didn’t. I actually wanted to write and direct and be more involved in politics and humanitarian issues.
  671. I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
  672. I became interested in folk music because I had to make it somehow.
  673. I became really interested in the study of consciousness.
  674. I became so disciplined when I was on tag. I would be at home by eight o’clock, and because I had boxing, I lived the disciplined life. I started reading because I learnt that so many champions educated themselves. Joe Louis, Mike Tyson, Bernard Hopkins. Before, it was ‘act now, think later’ – but the discipline and reading changed me.
  675. I became the Dalai Lama not on a volunteer basis.
  676. I became the kind of parent my mother was to me.
  677. I became vegan because I saw footage of what really goes on in the slaughterhouses and on the dairy farms.
  678. I began revolution with 82 men. If I had to do it again, I do it with 10 or 15 and absolute faith. It does not matter how small you are if you have faith and plan of action.
  679. I began to learn about the camera and the actors. That gave me a lot of the skills. At the same time, advertising gives you a lot of vices, for example, an obsession for a superficial look, but at the same time, it gives you the capacity to synthesize the story – tell a story in one minute.
  680. I began to think, now is the time. I found quite a lot of opposition in Hollywood about the idea of doing a film musical and we ended up having to buy the rights back. I’m glad we did because it meant John and I were able to make exactly the movie we wanted.
  681. I began to work the stage and get the audience into it. I also learned how to have fun out there. It is something I will never forget.
  682. I began when I was a child, because I was born and grew up in a little village. And many people ride the horses. So, it was a big – it has been a big passion for me.
  683. I begin to think, that a calm is not desirable in any situation in life. Man was made for action and for bustle too, I believe.
  684. I believe a marriage is between a man and a woman.
  685. I believe Aids is the most important issue we face, because how we treat the poor is a reflection of who we are as a people.
  686. I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth.
  687. I believe art has to take responsibility but it should not give up being art.
  688. I believe discrimination still exists in society and we must fight it in every form.
  689. I believe employment regulations for women, whereby the prospective employer is not able to inquire about the interviewee’s status regarding children, childcare, or indeed their intention of becoming a parent, are counterproductive.
  690. I believe everyone should have a broad picture of how the universe operates and our place in it. It is a basic human desire. And it also puts our worries in perspective.
  691. I believe firmly in God’s control in life.
  692. I believe forgiveness is possible for everybody, for everything, but I’m a Buddhist.
  693. I believe global warming and climate change are real threats to our planet.
  694. I believe greatness is an evolutionary process that changes and evolves era to era.
  695. I believe I have a personal responsibility to make a positive impact on society.
  696. I believe in $15 as a minimum wage.
  697. I believe in a long, prolonged, derangement of the senses in order to obtain the unknown.
  698. I believe in a president whose religious views are his own private affair, neither imposed by him upon the nation or imposed by the nation upon him as a condition to holding that office.
  699. I believe in aliens. I think it would be way too selfish of us as mankind to believe we are the only lifeforms in the universe.
  700. I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.
  701. I believe in being an innovator.
  702. I believe in believing. My coach John Kavanagh is a big atheist, and he is always trying to persuade people to his way of thinking, and I think, ‘What a waste of energy.’ If people want to believe in this god or that god, that’s fine by me; believe away. But I think we can be our own gods. I believe in myself.
  703. I believe in businesses where you engage in creative thinking, and where you form some of your deepest relationships. If it isn’t about the production of the human spirit, we are in big trouble.
  704. I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
  705. I believe in commitment. I believe in being open and trusting each other and respecting each other completely.
  706. I believe in compulsory cannibalism. If people were forced to eat what they killed, there would be no more wars.
  707. I believe in creative control. No matter what anyone makes, they should have control over it.
  708. I believe in empty spaces; they’re the most wonderful thing.
  709. I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers.
  710. I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?
  711. I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It’s just that the translations have gone wrong.
  712. I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.
  713. I believe in hard work. I think that everything flows out of that.
  714. I believe in humanitarian capitalism, and there are good people on Wall Street.
  715. I believe in innovation and that the way you get innovation is you fund research and you learn the basic facts.
  716. I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and… I believe in miracles.
  717. I believe in mysticism, with an interior goal, and you are your own temple and your own priest. I don’t believe anymore in religions, because you see today there are religious wars, prejudice, false morals, and the woman is despised. Religion is too old now; it’s from another century, it’s not for today.
  718. I believe in not attacking a country pre-emptively unless you’re sure of what you’re doing and you’re working with allies.
  719. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
  720. I believe in recovery, and I believe that as a role model I have the responsibility to let young people know that you can make a mistake and come back from it.
  721. I believe in superstitions. You don’t talk about a child who hasn’t been born.
  722. I believe in the forgiveness of sin and the redemption of ignorance.
  723. I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world.
  724. I believe in the limitlessness of humans. We’re capable of incredible things. At times, that realization is frightening.
  725. I believe in the religion of Islam. I believe in Allah and peace.
  726. I believe in the transformational power of liberty. I believe that the free Iraq is in this nation’s interests. I believe a free Afghanistan is in this nation’s interest.
  727. I believe in universal health care. And I am not afraid to say so.
  728. I believe in using words, not fists. I believe in my outrage knowing people are living in boxes on the street. I believe in honesty. I believe in a good time. I believe in good food. I believe in sex.
  729. I believe in work, in connections between the players, I think what makes football great is that it is a team sport. You can win in different ways, by being more of a team, or by having better individual players. It is the team ethic that interests me, always.
  730. I believe India and Israel should focus on building bilateral relations on the basis of shared perspectives and commonalities between our two democracies. This has to be a forward-looking exercise rather than harking back to perceptions of the past.
  731. I believe inspiration is contagious.
  732. I believe it is actually fomenting the growth of ISIL; Donald Trump could be a recruitment poster for ISIL because he is fanning the flames of hate.
  733. I believe it is universally understood and acknowledged that all men will ever act correctly, unless they have a motive to do otherwise.
  734. I believe I’ve always been a big believer in equality. No one has ever been able to tell me I couldn’t do something because I was a girl.
  735. I believe Karl Marx could have subscribed to the Sermon on the Mount.
  736. I believe life is an intelligent thing: that things aren’t random.
  737. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that’s not what America’s about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them.
  738. I believe my father has and always will be the strongest influence in my life, as he has guided me on many paths.
  739. I believe myself to possess a most singular combination of qualities exactly fitted to make me pre-eminently a discoverer of the hidden realities of nature.
  740. I believe nuclear energy in Jordan will be done in such a way where it is a public-private partnership so everyone can see exactly what’s going on.
  741. I believe one of the best things about managing people is that we can influence lives in a positive way. That’s basically what a manager is about. When I can do that, I am very happy.
  742. I believe orders should be obeyed, but sometimes you have to think about the orders you get.
  743. I believe passionately in preemptive pessimism, especially before a book comes out. I expect the worst both from reviewers and sales, and then, with any luck, I may be proved wrong.
  744. I believe people have a right to know what’s going on with their information and how it’s collected, how it’s stored and who gets it.
  745. I believe Prime Minister Blair is a friend, and a friend of Israel.
  746. I believe public education is the new civil rights battle and I support charter schools.
  747. I believe that a man can only be useful to his country when he can look at it clearly.
  748. I believe that a man is the strongest soldier for daring to die unarmed.
  749. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.
  750. I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experience behind him.
  751. I believe that art is a tool and that, like all tools, it has functions. I also think it is important to know what the tool is for so that we can better know how and when to use it.
  752. I believe that at the end of the century the use of words and general educated opinion will have altered so much that one will be able to speak of machines thinking without expecting to be contradicted.
  753. I believe that democracy is the best guarantor for peace and cooperation among nations.
  754. I believe that each of us comes from the Creator trailing wisps of glory.
  755. I believe that every human mind feels pleasure in doing good to another.
  756. I believe that every person is born with talent.
  757. I believe that every writer evolves with every successive novel. I view myself as work-in-progress.
  758. I believe that God has a plan and purpose not only for the human race, but for my individual life.
  759. I believe that God has planted in every heart the desire to live in freedom.
  760. I believe that God knows what each of us wants and needs. It’s not necessary for us to make it to church on Sunday to reach Him. You can find Him anyplace. And if that sounds heretical, my source is pretty good: Matthew, Five to Seven, The Sermon on the Mount.
  761. I believe that I have received Jesus Christ into my heart. I believe that he has covered all of my sins.
  762. I believe that I often bring out the best in somebody’s talents.
  763. I believe that if Israel were to put an end to the settlements in the West Bank tomorrow, as it did in Gaza, there would still be reluctance on the part of the Palestinian Authority to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish secular democracy.
  764. I believe that if we really want human brotherhood to spread and increase until it makes life safe and sane, we must also be certain that there is no one true faith or path by which it may spread.
  765. I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act.
  766. I believe that if your film is good, and if you are good, you will do well.
  767. I believe that I’m one of the best in the world at what I do, and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to be.
  768. I believe that Israel is much stronger than many of its leaders.
  769. I believe that it is our human right to be parents and women. And there’s no contradiction between feminism, which means women should have all that they are entitled to, all that they can do, all the opportunities that they can take advantage of they should have.
  770. I believe that Jesus realized his oneness with God and he showed, what he attempted to do was show the way to all of us, how to realize our own onenes with God also, so he’s a precursor.
  771. I believe that mothers should tell the truth, even – no, especially – when the truth is difficult. It’s always easier, and in the short term can even feel right, to pretend everything is okay, and to encourage your children to do the same. But concealment leads to shame, and of all hurts shame is the most painful.
  772. I believe that nothing happens apart from divine determination and decree. We shall never be able to escape from the doctrine of divine predestination – the doctrine that God has foreordained certain people unto eternal life.
  773. I believe that one version of the good in life can be defined by the moments I sometimes had playing tennis as a sixteen-year-old. You’d be out on the court and for an hour, two hours, sometimes an entire roasting hot day, and every single thing you hit would go in. Hit that ball as hard as you wanted, wherever you wanted, and it went in.
  774. I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work.
  775. I believe that patterns tend to repeat themselves and there are connections between the past and the present. There is the old proverb that reads, ‘You can’t know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been’. For me, history is like that. When you take history and combine it with myth, then you get mystery.
  776. I believe that some of us who were kept by God a long while before we found Him love Him better perhaps than we should have done if we had received Him directly, and we can preach better to others – we can speak more of His loving-kindness and tender mercy.
  777. I believe that the day one stops being spiritual, one ends up being religious. I live by the adage that the only certainty in life is death. We should, therefore, learn to live for the day and be content.
  778. I believe that the dysfunctional Muslim family constitutes a real threat to the very fabric of western life. It is in the family that children are groomed to practise, promote and pass on the norms of their parents’ culture.
  779. I believe that the essence of marriage is choosing someone who loves you for who you are, embraces everything about you, and building a life with that person. Whether that life is with children or without children – it’s honestly immaterial to building a life with someone that you love fully.
  780. I believe that the greatest form of prayer is praise to God.
  781. I believe that the Jewish state will exist forever.
  782. I believe that the only way that the human race is gonna survive is to start colonizing space and setting up colonies on the moon, and then space stations.
  783. I believe that the right thing for us to do, as much as we can and without confusing people, is to talk about how we’re doing, the things that are going well but also the things that aren’t going well.
  784. I believe that there are many herbs and many trees that are worth much in Europe for dyes and for medicines; but I do not know, and this causes me great sorrow. Arriving at this cape, I found the smell of the trees and flowers so delicious that it seemed the pleasantest thing in the world.
  785. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
  786. I believe that we all have freedom to shape our own life and the world around us.
  787. I believe that what woman resents is not so much giving herself in pieces as giving herself purposelessly.
  788. I believe that whatever comes at a particular time is a blessing from God.
  789. I believe that whatever we have, regardless of a trade being done or not, I feel we have a shot. I’ve just got to believe that we’re going to be all right. I’ve got to just play basketball.
  790. I believe that when people experience an event as a community, it can transcend and change people’s lives.
  791. I believe that writers have a responsibility to evolve the language, whether by introducing new words or new usages. Shakespeare alone is responsible for something like 3400 words and phrases.
  792. I believe that you can love anyone. I’ve had relationships with women, I’ve had relationships with men. I don’t think you should be judged based on who you find attractive. Especially guys – gay men, they really have it hard sometimes.
  793. I believe the Abominable Snowman may be real. I think there may be something in that.
  794. I believe the collapse of the House of Windsor is tied in with the collapse of the Church of England.
  795. I believe the election and reelection of Obama were among the most conspicuous acts of denial in recent years. Voters just stopped paying attention. They accepted consistently bad behavior and rewarded it. Then they wonder why they get more bad behavior.
  796. I believe the gun is no solution to problems.
  797. I believe the home and marriage is the foundation of our society and must be protected.
  798. I believe the ‘Jeopardy!’ test is more difficult than being a contestant on the program.
  799. I believe the most solemn duty of the American president is to protect the American people. If America shows uncertainty and weakness in this decade, the world will drift toward tragedy. This will not happen on my watch.
  800. I believe the returns on investment in the poor are just as exciting as successes achieved in the business arena, and they are even more meaningful!
  801. I believe the target of anything in life should be to do it so well that it becomes an art.
  802. I believe the universe is governed by the laws of science. The laws may have been decreed by God, but God does not intervene to break the laws.
  803. I believe there are no questions that science can’t answer about a physical universe.
  804. I believe there should be breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack, all for free and for every child that goes to school. And all food that is good, clean and fair.
  805. I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
  806. I believe things cannot make themselves impossible.
  807. I believe this government cannot endure permanently, half slave and half free.
  808. I believe those that produce the least emissions in autos will also be those who have the greatest success worldwide.
  809. I believe time wounds all heels.
  810. I believe Timothy McVeigh getting the death penalty for his heinous act of killing over a hundred in Oklahoma City, that could very well deter others that might want to enter into that similar conduct.
  811. I believe totally in a Capitalist System, I only wish that someone would try it.
  812. I believe Wall Street needs serious ongoing regulation.
  813. I believe we are on an irreversible trend toward more freedom and democracy – but that could change.
  814. I believe we are still so innocent. The species are still so innocent that a person who is apt to be murdered believes that the murderer, just before he puts the final wrench on his throat, will have enough compassion to give him one sweet cup of water.
  815. I believe we need to attract a new generation of the best and brightest to public service and I believe that government can be a source of inspiration, not degradation.
  816. I believe we shall come to care about people less and less. The more people one knows the easier it becomes to replace them. It’s one of the curses of London.
  817. I believe we should appeal to people at the higher levels.
  818. I believe we should utilise any power we have for important issues that are bigger and beyond us. Whether it’s with refugees or working to educate kids. I don’t think you need to have gone through a civil war to do something. I believe as human beings, we can look out for each other.
  819. I believe when things are going well, there’s pressure, and when things are going bad, there’s pressure. The pressure is more on the outside than inside.
  820. I believe with all my heart that America remains ‘the great idea’ that inspires the world. It is a privilege to be born here. It is an honor to become a citizen here. It is a gift to raise your family here, to vote here, and to live here.
  821. I believe women still face a glass ceiling that must be shattered.
  822. I believe women think differently.
  823. I believe you mother everybody, not in a cloying, hovering way, but taking care of what is around you.
  824. I believe you should give 100% on the court, so I chase every ball.
  825. I bent my head over a stove in my early 20s and picked it up in my 30s.
  826. I boldly assert, in fact I think I know, that a lot of friendships and connections absolutely depend upon a sort of shared language, or slang. Not necessarily designed to exclude others, this can establish a certain comity and, even after a long absence, re-establish it in a second.
  827. I booked my first studio at like 12 or 13. Somewhere in that season of my life, singing along with the radio became me wanting to be on radio, you know. And writing Langston Hughes replica poems became me wanting to write like Stevie Wonder.
  828. I booked my first studio at like 12 or 13. Somewhere in that season of my life, singing along with the radio became me wanting to be on radio, you know.
  829. I break ground. I trailblaze.
  830. I break orbital bones.
  831. I breeze through Twitter – I look at the mentions, the pictures, the videos.
  832. I briefly did therapy, but after a while, I realised it is just like a farmer complaining about the weather. You can’t fix the weather – you just have to get on with it.
  833. I broke in with four hits, and the writers promptly declared they had seen the new Ty Cobb. It took me only a few days to correct that impression.
  834. I broke with my religion in college.
  835. I built a great company, one of the – some of the most iconic assets in the world, $10 billion of net worth, more than $10 billion of net worth, and frankly, I had a great time doing it.
  836. I built my talents on the shoulders of someone else’s talent.
  837. I buried Joel on our 48th anniversary. I had been with her since I was 16.
  838. I busted my bird for 60 years in the business, but my grandkids only know me as Mr. Potato Head.
  839. I busted my tail for so long, I’m just glad it’s getting recognized now as part of the WWE. Because let’s face it, the WWE is the biggest company out there when it comes to wrestling. I’m just happy that I’m being recognized as somebody who works hard, I guess.
  840. I by no means quit social media.
  841. I calculate that I took 20,000 punches, but I earned millions and kept a lot of it. I may talk slow, but my mind is OK.
  842. I call myself a liberal – a classical liberal as in John Stuart Mill.
  843. I call myself an actor. I always wanted to be one.
  844. I call on people to be ‘obsessed citizens,’ forever questioning and asking for accountability. That’s the only chance we have today of a healthy and happy life.
  845. I call on the Western democracies and primarily on the leader of the free world, the United States: Do not repeat the dreadful mistake of 1938, when enlightened European democracies decided to sacrifice Czechoslovakia for a convenient temporary solution… Israel will not be Czechoslovakia.
  846. I call upon the scientific community in our country, those who gave us nuclear weapons, to turn their great talents now to the cause of mankind and world peace: to give us the means of rendering these nuclear weapons impotent and obsolete.
  847. I came across few whites as a boy at Qunu. The local magistrate, of course, was white, as was the nearest shopkeeper. Occasionally, white travelers or policemen passed through our area. These whites appeared as grand as gods to me, and I was aware that they were to be treated with a mixture of fear and respect.
  848. I came from a poor family, so working and going to school at the same time was natural. It taught me multi-tasking, although we didn’t call it that back then. I learned I could never be idle, I need to be doing many things at once.
  849. I came from a socially deprived background when I was 15, 16 years old, but one thing I knew was one – you don’t abuse a policeman, and two – you don’t steal things.
  850. I came from a town of about 2,000 people with one stop light, and I was told that nothing I ever wanted to do, I would succeed in.
  851. I came from a very corporate environment, but my own style is quite approachable, warm, and very detail oriented.
  852. I came here in 1974 to do a play, and then I went to L.A. I really like living in America. I feel more at home here than anywhere else.
  853. I came, I saw, I conquered.
  854. I came in here and a fella asked me to have a drink. I said I don’t drink. Then another fella said hear you and Joe DiMaggio aren’t speaking and I said I’ll take that drink.
  855. I came in with Halley’s Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it. It will be the greatest disappointment of my life if I don’t go out with Halley’s Comet. The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.’
  856. I came into this world the way every person on the planet does – with clenched fists.
  857. I came out to L.A. in ’78 to be a musician. I didn’t get into comedy until the mid-Eighties.
  858. I came to all the realizations about sustainability and biodiversity because I fell in love with the way food tastes. That was it. And because I was looking for that taste I feel at the doorsteps of the organic, local, sustainable farmers, dairy people and fisherman.
  859. I came to Hollywood and within a decade I was one of the biggest action stars of all time.
  860. I came to my Marxist view as a result of having struggled as a nationalist and found certain dead ends theoretically and ideologically, as far as nationalism was concerned, and had to reach out for a communist ideology.
  861. I came to terms with not fitting in a long time ago. I never really fitted in. I don’t want to fit in. And now people are buying into that.
  862. I came up in gospel.
  863. I came up in hip-hop, where people value the ability to tell it straight.
  864. I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.
  865. I can adapt to change easily, but I’m not a fan of it.
  866. I can assure you that my first and foremost interest is my country.
  867. I can barely walk, but it’s a privilege to be able to move at all.
  868. I can be a cruel person.
  869. I can be a woodsman if need be. I grew up very close to some forest, and I spent a lot of my formative years up and down trees, fooling around in the woods. I’m no stranger to that sort of landscape.
  870. I can be accused of trying to be commercial sometimes.
  871. I can be almost terminally grief-stricken because things are so dire, but at the same time, there’s a real lightheartedness about just the recoverability of life, of how things change, how they’re not the same, ever again.
  872. I can be jubilant one moment and pensive the next, and a cloud could go by and make that happen.
  873. I can be just a touch controlling!
  874. I can be overly confident at times, but with someone who I’m very close to, like with my mother, I will break down. In real life, people will find out that I’m not actually that confident and that I’m a real guy underneath it all.
  875. I can be the nice family man at home, and then when I go to the gym, maybe sparring with someone, I switch into beast mode. It ain’t pretty.
  876. I can be unbearable sometimes asking for so many takes.
  877. I can begin to understand how anchor monsters are made. If you’re not careful, you can become used to being treated as though you’re special and begin to expect it.
  878. I can call a march, and thousands come out, and I happen to have access to the White House at the same time.
  879. I can choose to be happy, or choose to be miserable every day – waiting until I die.
  880. I can design a collection in a day and I always do, cause I’ve always got a load of Italians on my back, moaning that it’s late.
  881. I can do a film only if it excites me as an actor.
  882. I can do no other than be reverent before everything that is called life. I can do no other than to have compassion for all that is called life. That is the beginning and the foundation of all ethics.
  883. I can easily imagine Obama sitting down and talking to any leader – or any person – in the world, with no baggage of past servitude or race supremacy to mar their talks.
  884. I can eat two large pizzas and a tray of brownies in one sitting. I’m not sharing that. We can get another one, but I ain’t sharing.
  885. I can encourage my daughter to love her body, but what really matters are the observations she makes about my relationship with my own body.
  886. I can express all my views on the slavery question by quotations from Henry Clay.
  887. I can express myself.
  888. I can find in my undergraduate classes, bright students who do not know that the stars rise and set at night, or even that the Sun is a star.
  889. I can get an audience screaming in Las Vegas and say, ‘Barbara, that was a great show,’ and she’ll say, ‘Would you please hurry up? We have dinner reservations at 9:30.’
  890. I can get on with all different sorts of people, and I never feel homesick, particularly, or I’ve never felt kind of patriotic towards any one country.
  891. I can handle pain.
  892. I can have people around a lot more because I’m not always chasing them away so I can work on my novel. My non-novel, I mean.
  893. I can hear you, the rest of the world can hear you and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.
  894. I can hold my own when it comes to burping. I’ve got a good feeling that I could win a championship.
  895. I can imagine in years to come that my papers and memorabilia, my journals and letters, will find themselves always in the company of people who care about many of the things I do.
  896. I can imagine myself on my death-bed, spent utterly with lust to touch the next world, like a boy asking for his first kiss from a woman.
  897. I can live for two months on a good compliment.
  898. I can look at the future with anticipation. And it’s comforting to know that someday, as Christians, we’ll be able to look back and have a little more clarity on why certain things in life happened.
  899. I can look back at different times in my life when I felt I could not find my way out of whatever it was. I’m not necessarily talking about marriage, but I wanted to pack it in. I wanted to disappear. A lot of that has to do with being in the public eye.
  900. I can look into someone’s eyes and feel like I know her better, versus a phone call, where you can’t get that same type of emotion. That’s why text messaging gets you in trouble: You can’t bond, and emoticons explain only so much.
  901. I can make a firm pledge, under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.
  902. I can make more generals, but horses cost money.
  903. I can mention many moments that were unforgettable and revelatory. But the most single revelatory three minutes was the first time I put on scuba gear and dived on a coral reef. It’s just the unbelievable fact that you can move in three dimensions.
  904. I can move any crowd.
  905. I can never be in the same place for too long. It feels like the world is caving in.
  906. I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.
  907. I can never tell ahead of time which book will give me trouble – some balk every step of the way, others seem to write themselves – but certainly the mechanics of writing, finding the time and the psychic space, are easier now that my children are grown.
  908. I can not believe that war is the best solution. No one won the last war, and no one will win the next war.
  909. I can not think of any circumstances in which advertising would not be an evil.
  910. I can only see my limitations. That’s just who I am.
  911. I can open up any can of worms and get people upset.
  912. I can operate in half-a-song format.
  913. I can play a lot of different instruments adequately but nothing really well.
  914. I can promise you that when I go to Sacramento, I will pump up Sacramento.
  915. I can rap. Not openly in the world, but it’s important that people know! I can rap for a very specific reason, which is that in college I was in an improv comedy group, and we did musical improv.
  916. I can read people, and if the other person doesn’t want to say anything, I’m fine with that. People say things when it’s time to say them.
  917. I can recall, as a young adult, running through the rain forest at the Forest Reserve, at times feeling a sense of fear when I felt I was in danger. In danger of confronting an ugly snake or a coral snake, which represented the greatest fear of someone in a rural area when you traverse the forest.
  918. I can relax with bums because I am a bum. I don’t like laws, morals, religions, rules. I don’t like to be shaped by society.
  919. I can remember back to my early tour days when some fellows didn’t think I’d last too long. Nothing physical – they said it was my swing. Some said it was too much of a ‘muscle swing’ to stand the test of time. One fellow predicted I wouldn’t get past 30 out there.
  920. I can remember the three restaurant experiences of my childhood. All I wanted to do on my birthday was to go to the Automat in New York… but I don’t know if you consider that a real restaurant.
  921. I can resist everything except temptation.
  922. I can say that we are very clear in our mind about the responsibility of the national soldiers for the break with civilisation that was the Shoah. We are firmly convinced that this is something that will have to be handed over to generations to come… so we don’t see any reason to change our view of history.
  923. I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman – not me, not Bill, nobody – more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.
  924. I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God-made world, not a manmade world.
  925. “I can see how that would be frustrating” and “That is a valid concern. Many of my clients have expressed that same concern before starting their campaign” are both examples of speaking with a concerned client. These types of responses are:
  926. I can sing in various genres, but my heart truly lies in singing romantic songs. This has been my forte ever since I was 8 or 9.
  927. I can speak English. I can speak Hindi. I can understand one or two other languages.
  928. I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect.
  929. I can take a week’s vacation – maybe a week and a half – but after that, I’m itching to go back to work.
  930. I can tap dance a little bit.
  931. I can tell more about my weaknesses than my strengths.
  932. I can tell you that the majority of the Egyptians I know, they think of a much wider spectrum of people than the Muslim Brotherhood.
  933. I can tell you this: Stand-up is not glamorous.
  934. I can testify to what UNICEF means to children because I was among those who received food and medical relief right after World War II.
  935. I can think of nothing more boring for the American people than to have to sit in their living rooms for a whole half hour looking at my face on their television screens.
  936. I can tune a guitar, but I can’t tüna fish.
  937. I can understand how some people might resent me for having the audacity to continue playing music, but it’d take a lot more than that to stop me from doing it. I started Foo Fighters because I didn’t want to retreat.
  938. I can understand wanting to have millions of dollars; there’s a certain freedom, meaningful freedom, that comes with that.
  939. I can unload my opinion on anybody at anytime.
  940. I can usually tell when a woman is going through a divorce because they look so gaunt and tired and sad. It’s just a huge sadness. It’s horrible. It’s like death. You mourn, but the person’s still there.
  941. I can well conceive a man without hands, feet, head. But I cannot conceive man without thought; he would be a stone or a brute.
  942. I can write a song in about an hour if it’s a simple country song.
  943. I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time.
  944. I cannot claim to have had a hard time publishing.
  945. I cannot conceive of Israel withdrawing if Arab states do not recognize Israel, within secure borders.
  946. I cannot consent that my mortal body shall be laid in a repository prepared for an Emperor or a King my republican feelings and principles forbid it the simplicity of our system of government forbids it.
  947. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of family encouragement – not just for me, but for everyone.
  948. I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
  949. I cannot explain it; but when difficulties arise, I am not perplexed or doubtful. I know how to meet them.
  950. I cannot help fearing that men may reach a point where they look on every new theory as a danger, every innovation as a toilsome trouble, every social advance as a first step toward revolution, and that they may absolutely refuse to move at all.
  951. I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation and is but a reflection of human frailty.
  952. I cannot live without books.
  953. I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.
  954. I cannot pretend to be impartial about the colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones, and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns.
  955. I cannot read a single word of the Hindoos without being elevated.
  956. I cannot say for certain if there is such a thing as love at first sight, but I do know that the moment I first glimpsed Winnie Nomzamo, I knew that I wanted to have her as my wife.
  957. I cannot say that the attitude of the United Nations always is for the Israeli attitude. Israel, I think, has been under severe attacks by members of the United Nations many times.
  958. I cannot sleep for dreaming; I cannot dream but I wake and walk about the house as though I’d find you coming through some door.
  959. I cannot stress enough that the answer to life’s questions is often in people’s faces. Try putting your iPhones down once in a while, and look in people’s faces. People’s faces will tell you amazing things. Like if they are angry, or nauseous or asleep.
  960. I cannot swallow whole the view of Lincoln as the Great Emancipator.
  961. I cannot tell a joke. But I can do a situation, that it becomes a joke.
  962. I cannot understand how the education of this United States of America has been fooled time and time again. Either make it separate but equal or integrate, therefore it will be equal. And it has been separate and unequal.
  963. I cannot wait until the day I can go back to school… I’ve already picked my program: anthropology at Columbia. I will not get in, but a girl can dream.
  964. I cannot with any real integrity perform songs I’ve done for 25 years. I don’t need the money. What I need is to feel that I am not letting myself down as an artist and that I still have something to contribute.
  965. I can’t act!
  966. I can’t be casual about losing. I always think I have a chance to win until winning is absolutely impossible.
  967. I can’t believe all this is happening to me, but I am definitely here to stay. And I am happy to be in Indian cinema.
  968. I can’t believe I did a peace sign on TV – like Ringo Starr!
  969. I can’t complain that I’ve had a public all through my writing life, but people don’t quite know what I’ve written. People don’t read you too closely. Perhaps, after I’ve died, they’ll look at my stuff, and read it through, and find there’s more in it. That may be wrong, but that’s what I comfort myself with.
  970. I can’t control what people think of me, and I stopped really caring a long time ago.
  971. I can’t control what’s fair and unfair. I can’t control the nature of the business or the nature of society or the nature of the world, but what I can control is how I choose to see the world and what I choose to put back into it.
  972. I can’t dance anymore. Total knee replacements. I can’t do anything anymore.
  973. I can’t dance to save my life.
  974. I can’t deny that the thought of being governor, the thought of being president, is alluring. And beyond that, it would be an opportunity to make a real impact on people’s lives on a global scale. But there are a lot of other things I want to do first.
  975. I can’t disguise myself with a wig and dark glasses – the wheelchair gives me away.
  976. I can’t do nothing just a little.
  977. I can’t draw. I’m good on the yo-yo, but I don’t draw.
  978. I can’t envisage stopping writing.
  979. I can’t even pretend to play golf.
  980. I can’t even read notes. But I can teach someone how to make a guitar smoke.
  981. I can’t exactly say why there’s not much protest music to speak off. And I know there are acts out there still putting a message in their music.
  982. I can’t explain 9/11, except the evil of man.
  983. I can’t find anything in the Constitution that says you prefer the life of the mother, or the convenience of the mother if it’s an abortion by choice, over the potential life of the fetus. Look, I think women, if they’re required to not have abortions, could die and could – so I favor a woman’s right to choose.
  984. I can’t get sucked into that celebrity thing, because I think it’s just crass.
  985. I can’t get too offended when somebody parodies me.
  986. I can’t get very far away from Christianity, I can’t get very far away from the angels and the saints. I work them in always, in some way.
  987. I can’t grow a mustache. It’s pretty sad if I attempt to.
  988. I can’t have my employees sitting in traffic when they should be in the office. Spending two-and-half hours in the car is a huge waste of productive time.
  989. I can’t imagine David Lean justifying why he went to the desert to shoot ‘Lawrence of Arabia.’
  990. I can’t imagine going to an all-girls school. I went to a public school.
  991. I can’t imagine leaving the restaurant. It’s hard for me to separate my life from my work; I’m really thinking about what we’re doing every day.
  992. I can’t keep somebody from being a star, and I can’t make somebody a star, and nobody can.
  993. I can’t keep up with Stephen King’s output.
  994. I can’t negate the theory that the Huxtables on ‘The Cosby Show’ may have helped pave the way for the Obama family. People enjoyed watching that black family.
  995. I can’t not put humor in a book.
  996. I can’t not write, if I don’t then I get really depressed.
  997. I can’t play bridge. I don’t play tennis. All those things that people learn, and I admire, there hasn’t seemed time for. But what there is time for is looking out the window.
  998. I can’t predict the future.
  999. I can’t pretend that I’m brave and that I can beat the whole world.
  1000. I can’t prove it scientifically, that there’s a God, but I believe.
