I think the best comedy is tragicomic. Yeah, I suppose if you were to look at everything I've done, there is a bit of a black streak through all of it. It's not deliberate: it's what makes me laugh, and there's a fine tradition of it, especially in Ireland. Sharon Horgan
Truth in science can be defined as the working hypothesis best suited to open the way to the next better one. Konrad Lorenz

Leadership is an act of submission to God. To be a leader means listening to all kinds of people and situations. Out of that listening, we are hoping to discern the mind of God as best we can. This is the price of leadership - it's an act of sacrifice. So leadership is part and parcel of the work of submission to God. Richard Foster

The longer I live, the more I feel that the individual is not so much to blame - not even the worst individuals, not even the 'best' citizens - as the system of corruption which has grown up about us, and which rewards an honest man with a mere living and a crook with all the magnificence of our magnificent modern life. Lincoln Steffens
Be passionate. Be courageous. Be your best. Gabrielle Giffords
When I was younger, I thought you had to be in control of your own life. That takes a lot of discipline, hard work and focus. You just can't let it all fall by the wayside.

Perhaps I can say that I am a bit astute, that I can adapt to circumstances, but it is also true that I am a bit naive. Yes, but the best summary, the one that comes more from the inside and I feel most true is this: I am a sinner whom the Lord has looked upon. Pope Francis I

I don't host a show and go, 'Have you got my best angle?' Cat Deeley

My brother married young, and his is the best marriage I know. Maeve Binchy
I used to do my best thinking while staring out airplane windows. The seat-back video system put a stop to that. Now I sit and watch old' Friends' and 'Everybody Loves Raymond' episodes.

I'm satisfied to go in at the bottom - that's the best way to learn what things are all about. Cesar Romero
We are biological creatures. We are born, we live, we die. There is no transcendent purpose to existence.

Goldman Sachs believes that economically empowering women globally is one of the best investments to grow economies, create jobs, and build more prosperous societies. Dina Powell

He serves his party best who serves his country best. Rutherford B. Hayes
Keeping it all together as a modern woman means multitasking, especially when you work. I think you always need to try your best, but at the same time you can only do what you can do, and you don't need to beat yourself up about it. I'm not white-picket-fence perfect. Heidi Klum
I've played a Nintendo Wii. I don't see it as a competitor. It's more of an expensive niche game device. We're selling a lot of PlayStation 3s now and it's still the best way to buy a Blu-ray player. Howard Stringer

In matters of conscience, first thoughts are best. In matters of prudence, last thoughts are best. Robert Hall (minister)

A lot of times, some of my best ideas happen when I'm running. That's when I do my best thinking. Apolo Ohno

You know, there's nothing like seeing the smile on my kids' faces. Laughing together. Playing. It's the best. Mark Wahlberg
I'm born originally in Toronto, and I have what I call my 'Fame' story. I took a Greyhound bus and went to Alvin Ailey and received Dunham, Horton, Graham technique there, but I could never take my eyes off of Balanchine doing 'Nutcracker'; to me he's the best who ever did it. Laurieann Gibson
I have so many fashion mistakes, but that's part of being in fashion. I think the people that you see make the most mistakes are usually the best dressers. Zac Posen
Casting directors I don't think are the best in Mexico at street casting. Whereas, I think, in New York and in L.A., that's more common; not so in Mexico. So it's up to you as a director in a lot of ways to go out and do that. Cary Fukunaga
If you live day by day and do the best you can, then you'll have a great future. If you worry about the future, and you don't live the best day, you're not going to have a future. Jason David Frank

Some of the best times I've spent in Colorado have been in the backcountry with my mom and siblings, and more recently, with my own kids. That is why I'm concerned to see today's kids spending more time browsing the Internet than exploring nature. Mark Udall

It... is the best opportunity we've had in the last 25 years to bring about a settlement in Northern Ireland, and I think we should leave no stone unturned to achieve that. Dick Spring

I think it's very clear that the American people are frustrated with this move toward socialism.

Tim Scott
Before Angelina Jolie became a humanitarian, she was best known for wearing a vial of blood around her neck and kissing her brother. Stephen Rodrick

Money is the best rule of commerce. William Petty
When you run a part of the relay and pass on the baton, there is no sense of unfinished business in your mind. There is just the sense of having done your part to the best of your ability.

When I was younger, I was nervous and didn't have a huge amount of confidence as an actor. Comedy is something - you know when you're getting it right because you can hear.

Seve Ballesteros was the best trouble-shot player who ever lived. It didn't matter how far in the woods you put that guy, he'd find a way to get out. But Seve inadvertently put a lot of big numbers on the scorecards of average players, because he inspired them to take dumb chances. Lee Trevino
In football, it's the job of the player to play, the coach to coach, the official to officiate. Each guy is charged with upholding his end, nothing more.

I try very hard to write the best book I possibly can, every time. Charlaine Harris

No, she is right up there with the best I've worked with. I was very impressed with her, I really was. Albert Finney

'The Sopranos,' for instance, is arguably the best cable show of all time. They could have made a movie, but that show ended so perfectly, it would almost be a disadvantage to make a movie like that. Then again, if you made a 'Sopranos' movie, people would be lined around the block to go see it. Jerry Ferrara
That actually is one of my huge challenges right now because I write best at night, no question. I can focus. You know you're not getting any phone calls, I can shut everything down, and I'm just more creative at night. Stephenie Meyer
I'd be the best mum ever. I would. I've got great training from my mum. Kelly Osbourne
You can learn more from the lows than the highs. The highs are great but the lows make you really look at things in a different way and want to improve.

I think I've become one of the best finishers in boxing; if I hurt a guy, I normally take him out. Sugar Ray Leonard
Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future. Dale Turner

I think good radio often uses the techniques of fiction: characters, scenes, a big urgent emotional question. And as in the best fiction, tone counts for a lot. But a lot of effective and interesting radio is based on one character who reacts to the world. Ira Glass
Some of the best actors in the world are very exterior actors, Anthony Hopkins being one of them. He knows exactly how to turn his face to get a certain expression. He knows exactly what to do with eyes, and with his voice. It's very exterior. Boris Kodjoe
If you can create an environment where people are invited to do their best work and the best ideas always win, then the project itself will win. Jennifer Carpenter

In terms of merit, sports has mathematical statistics. That's how you know who the best player is. Norm MacDonald

Your best teacher is your last mistake. Ralph Nader
I still have a photo on my wall of the greatest idol I will ever have in my life, and it's myself at eight.

That was me at my best. Henning Mankell
Writing your own jokes, you just kind of keep working on something until you think it might work, and then you try it out and hope for the best. Aziz Ansari

As we reflect back upon the tragic loss of Challenger and her brave crew of heroes who were aboard that fateful day, I am reminded that they truly represented the best of us, as they climbed aloft on a plume of propellant gasses, reaching for the stars, to inspire us who were Earthbound. Buzz Aldrin
The best thing we can do is prepare people to lead in a much more diverse environment and see that as one of our national assets and one of the things that makes America strong. Gerald Chertavian

He who keeps his cool best wins. Norman Cousins

In my new book, 'Binge,' I share essays about everything I've never told my viewers - touching on the best and worst days of my life, some hilarious, some embarrassing, but all extremely personal. Tyler Oakley
As long as you gave it your best shot, even if in the opinion of others 'you failed,' you didn't fail. Al Lewis
