David Leavitt

When I'm drawing, I'm drawing with the light, being completely open and creative. I can't draw in the evening.

I draw according to the place. Christian Louboutin
There's a great enthusiasm for good country music all over the world. Willie Nelson
Our problem in the 2015 general election was that for all the good stuff that was in the Labour manifesto, we were still going to be freezing public sector wages, cutting council expenditure, laying off civil servants. We were offering 'austerity light' instead of a real alternative. Jeremy Corbyn

The radio is good for taking somebody else's experience and making you understand what it would be like.

Everything about it conspires to take you into somebody else's world. Ira Glass
The very first things that I did, even in theater, were bad guys. They are meaty roles for the most part. With the bad guy you have more freedom to experiment and go further out than with a good guy. Benicio Del Toro
My own rapping skills are quite good, actually. You get this thing, I think it's called Songify or AutoRap, and you talk into them, and they auto-tune it and make it into a quite interesting musical number. And I got one where it builds it into a rap. Aidan Gillen

I'd love to have written a film and it to be regarded as good. I'd just like to be doing things that are good, really. I think that's all you can aim for.

Games I do find interesting for what they say about us, about what we wish for, about the programming.

I sort of set myself really high standards which is good and bad.

So I never felt comfortable. Stephanie Rice

So I think it's fair to say it's even more of a challenge for some of these actors that are coming up, because there's such a pressure to look good, to be sexy and be palatable to people on whatever level. Anthony Michael Hall
I love a good lyricist - always have. The thing that inspired me most was the different performers, like Tina Turner, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Madonna, even Janet Jackson. Jennifer Lopez
If you're into a leather-jacketed crime fighter and his artificially intelligent robotic supercar, tune into 'The Good Wife.' If, on the other hand, you prefer the misadventures of a freelance itinerant trucker and his simian sidekick, check out 'The Walking Dead.' Or DVR them both and go talk to your family. Dallas Roberts
My mom's always been a good cook, so I took a lot of stuff from her, but most of the stuff I took from Emeril or Bobby Flay right off the TV and make it. I just loved to cook, so it just became a thing. It's a release. Even if I'm alone, I'll cook a full meal, maybe even a two-course meal, just because I love to cook. It's my secret love! Christian Kane
There are lots of things about Amazon for which they deserve credit. They're innovative. There are lots of very, very happy Amazon customers. I'm not here to dispute that Amazon has been personally good for me or to say that they haven't been, so far, good to their customers. Scott Turow
I think a lot of young girls go through that period in their life of finding who they are, and at that point, looking good matters the most. Colleen Atwood
Before a game, I avoid having a heavy meal so that I don't feel sleepy at the board. You eat to be healthy, and that generally takes care of everything. Also, you can't be too finicky, since at tournaments you tend to eat at restaurants here and there. But, as long as you're eating sensibly, it's all good. Viswanathan Anand
It's obvious nonsense, but it makes nice people feel good about themselves to do their bit for the planet. It's vanity of a grotesque kind to believe that mankind, and our 'carbon footprint', has more impact on the future of Earth than Nature, which bends our planet to its will, as it sees fit. Charles Saatchi
I wouldn't say that I relax and enjoy anything. But I think my pessimism helps. I never really expect anything good to happen, so when it does, it's a nice surprise. Rivers Cuomo
What TV is extremely good at - and realize that this is 'all it does' - is discerning what large numbers of people think they want, and supplying it. David Foster Wallace
I'm pretty good at getting things out of the way, especially paperwork. I hate it sitting about, as it somehow weighs me down. Cherie Lunghi
I do love singing. I wouldn't say I'm any good, but I definitely love it - especially jazz singing. Emilia Clarke
If the whole U.S. was like Silicon Valley, we'd be in good shape. But now, the entire U.S. is not driven by technology, is not driven by innovation. Peter Thiel
I would say that a good shoe is exactly like a good wine. These shoes are going to stay and last for a long time. Christian Louboutin
There's a movie called 'Pod People' that has a weird little anteater alien. That was a good alien. Bill Hader
There's no way to get around the fact that Jesus is the only way to Heaven, and He is so good that He exchanged His place in Heaven to come suffer on a cross for humanity and rose to set us free from eternal life in Hell. Monica Johnson
In every business I had ever started, even ones that had totally failed, I had kept good relations with the investors. James Altucher
Pilot season in L.A. is just this blood bath. They make so many pilots, and such a small percentage are picked up. And then if you are picked up, there are so many variables. You have to get a good time slot, and you have to get promoted. And then you have to thrive in that time slot. Michaela Conlin
I've already lived one full life, and so now I'm about to endeavor to see what else the good Lord has in store for me, and I'm wide open. Valerie Simpson
I feel really good right now. It will really be a tough decision. It's so hard to give up what you love doing. Hanging up the boots will not be an easy thing to do. Hulk Hogan
I used to listen to the soundtrack for the movie 'Tank Girl' all the time. It was really good. Jessica Pare
One good schoolmaster is of more use than a hundred priests. Thomas Paine
Online advertising may not be much more successful than an old double-barrel, but - like a good spray of buckshot - it makes up for its lack of accuracy with sheer volume. There are 10 unique ads listed with every Gmail message in your queue, each tied to the message content. And a paying sponsor. Douglas Rushkoff
There are clearly many good politicians who are guided by religious belief, so the mix can work. But there's a line to be drawn. It would be hugely dangerous for a country's laws to be set by the scriptures, and particularly those of the expansionist religions. Zac Goldsmith
But if you go over the line, you don't want to get stuck in a Nevada State court room. Honestly, because Nevada has been doing a good job of putting California criminals in jail. I mean, we couldn't put OJ in jail, but they did. We couldn't put Paris Hilton in jail, but they did. James Belushi
It's good to have butterflies. And they always go away. The camera starts rolling and they go away and it's all good. Chris Zylka
It is the spread of the good things that vindicates the whole reason we live our lives in networks. If I was always violent to you or gave you germs, you would cut the ties to me and the network would disintegrate. In a deep and fundamental way, networks are connected to goodness, and goodness is required for networks to emerge and spread. Nicholas A. Christakis
I think Mariska Hargitay on 'Law and Order: SVU' is a really good example of a female lead I'd like to emulate. She's really been able to captivate men and women in a way that's appealing, which is a tough line to follow. Spencer Grammer
Whenever I have tried to make a character bad, they end up being good in some way. Tom Drury
A conventional good read is usually a bad read, a relaxing bath in what we know already. A true good read is surely an act of innovative creation in which we, the readers, become conspirators. Augustine Birrell
Every actor just wants good writing. Jeff Daniels
I started when I was in college because I was shy and thought it would be a good way to break out of that. Catherine Bell
I come from a broken home. My parents split up when I was nine. Everyone gave me a good wallop. But I come from a time when you just put up with that, you got on with things rather than sitting moaning about them. Len Goodman
The Grateful Dead were very kind. It was Santa Claus. It did good things. It allowed other people to benefit. The benefits that we played were enormous, and we played free. So you've got a band that loves to play free, and that was a wonderful thing. Mickey Hart
When I was in high school, I wasn't a troublemaker. I didn't get in fights. I was a good student and I had a lot of friends. Thomas McDonell
Why has Scandinavia been producing such good thrillers? Maybe because their filmmakers can't afford millions for CGI and must rely on cheaper elements like, you know, stories and characters. Roger Ebert
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love you want the other person. Margaret Anderson
If art is any good, it has so much of a longer trajectory than one night. Contemporary art is separate from art openings. In the end, it depends on the strength of ideas in each piece. Elizabeth Peyton
Most people who end up being successful have good grades, but it's orthogonal - there's no extra information than if they put together a website and have bunch of fans who love coming and seeing what they're doing. Gabe Newell
Margot Livesey, my dear friend, reads all the drafts of what I write, and I read hers. We have an intense working relationship. I've been really lucky to know her. She's a great reader and teacher as well as an astonishingly good writer. Andrea Barrett
A good man with a good conscience doesn't walk so fast. Georg Buchner
I make sure I always surround myself with good, down to earth, fun, real people, who always keep me grounded. Sean Kingston
People complain that joking about serious subjects is 'making light' of them. Isn't that a good idea? Comedy lets the air out of the bully's tires. Peter Baynham
A lot of MTV's programming is hip-hop based, and the messages are usually all about bling bling. A lot of hip-hop artists sing about stuff that's more important, but they seldom get heard. The ones who get heard are the ones saying, 'Think about yourself. Make your money. It's all you. Everybody have a good time and party.' Daron Malakian
If you want to be a good writer, be the best writer in the world. That's what I've done. Ray Bradbury
In any story universe, you don't just want to keep adding to it when there are places and planets that exist that will already achieve the same thing for you story-wise. You don't want to just keep making it bigger for no good reason. Troy Denning
Nowadays, people don't ask you how you are, they say, 'Are you busy?' meaning, 'Are you well?' If someone actually does ask you how you are, the most cheerful answer, of course, is a robust 'Busy!' to which the person will reply 'Good!' Jo Ann Davis
People always say that Californian women are obsessed with their appearance but I think you've got to take good care of yourself, for yourself. Linda Gray
I'm a big fan of good grades. But I am going to suggest to you that you will find that the skills of a student are of somewhat less use to you once you get out into what is sometimes referred to as 'the real world.' Jeffrey Toobin
I have to be below 140 to really look good. I have to work my legs like crazy. Actually, do you want my real goal? My real goal's always too low. I love the way I look at, like, 128. Kirstie Alley
It's OK to stand back. But it's also good to demonstrate that it's fun to be involved. As long as you are willing to say, 'This looks fun. I'd like to try this, too,' your child will mimic your example of openness, playfulness and optimism. Julia Cameron
At one level, an award is an endorsement, a confirmation, but I always find myself looking askance at awards and good reviews, as though another Garry Disher had earned them. Garry Disher
I think any good government will target on the finishing date, that is, the polling day and make sure that their strategy is strong and in place to get them successfully re-elected. Alexander Downer
You hear a few people saying that, you know, maybe some of the past male players like to watch me play or whatever else, just because I play a bit differently and maybe they can relate to it a bit more with a bigger forehand rather than a backhand, good serve and whatnot. Samantha Stosur
The only freedom which deserves the name is that of pursuing our own good, in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. John Stuart Mill
My dad was a football player - a soccer player - for Manchester United, and I loved playing football, but I also happened to be the guy in class who was pretty good at sight reading. My teacher gave me scripts, and I was very comfortable. Ian McShane
My friend said to me, 'You don't look good,' - because all the time I have to think about law and justice and courts. Bikram Choudhury
Just knowing how to rap doesn't necessarily mean that you're a good songwriter. Danny Brown
I love a good cliffhanger. I love when big events happen in shows. I love shows that aren't afraid to take risks and to really do what's best for the story line and realistic for the story line. Candice Accola
A man always looks good in a dark suit. Greg Kinnear
I try hard to be a good Catholic. Paul Begala
The 'New Testament', now, I quite liked. Jesus had a lot of good things to say, and as for his father, he must have been highly thought of by the community to work with wood - a material that couldn't have been widely available in Palestine. Terry Pratchett
By the time I'm 35, I'll probably want to have a family. I'd be happy doing that, teaching my kids to do the right things, to do good things. Brittany Howard
Everybody in this race is against Obama, okay? So saying you're against Obama, against Obamacare, all the rest, it's all fine, well and good, except it doesn't move you forward. Ed Rollins
Happiness? A good cigar, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman - or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle. George Burns
If you're good, you're always looking over your shoulder. Bruce Springsteen
I don't want to be too strict, because I think kids can get rebellious, but I want to raise my daughter to be passionate about doing good things and pursuing real things and hobbies instead of frivolous materialistic stuff. Holly Madison
If you are a really good marathoner, you have to run New York. Haile Gebrselassie
Hollywood is not good when it comes to age. Kyle MacLachlan
Our players are mad, but it's good mad. Nancy Lopez
Four legs good, two legs bad. George Orwell
I make a good fried chicken. Norah Jones
Globalism began as a vision of a world with free trade, shared prosperity, and open borders. These are good, even noble things to aim for. Deepak Chopra
Competition is good and has served us well. Harold H. Greene
Buffalo rib-eye steaks, on the grill, is my favorite meal, seriously. It has less fat, more vitamins and more protein than beef. It is wonderful. Look, it was what the Indians ate, and they were very healthy. It's very good meat. Terry Crews
Everyone has something that they desperately need that makes them feel good, that they don't want anything to get in the way of. Whether it's a man's golf game, whether it's a woman's cooking. I have a friend who has to clean. She's addicted to cleaning. Tasha Smith
It's fun to look at people that are so good at acting that aren't actors, like David Bowie creating a mystique about rock n' roll. Val Kilmer
The Band is sounding real good. We've been doing some dates together and they've been going well. Rick Danko
What I've enjoyed most, though, is meeting people who have a real interest in food and sharing ideas with them. Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn - I love it! Jamie Oliver
You go into an audition, you're either the one or you're not, and if you're not, you go home. And I kind of like that. If you're really good, and you're the best guy in the room that day, you get the job. Bryan Callen
Well, you need the villain. If you don't have a villain, the good guy can stay home. Christoph Waltz
All honest work is good work; it is capable of leading to self-development, provided the doer seeks to discover the inherent lessons and makes the most of the potentialities for such growth. Paramahansa Yogananda
Nobody minds having what is too good for them. Jane Austen
The measure of choosing well, is, whether a man likes and finds good in what he has chosen. Charles Lamb
I need to know who the audience are in any particular play. It's no good forgetting that they're there. Donald Sinden
I wasn't a bad kid. My dad left when I was young, so I didn't have much discipline, not that I'm making excuses. I was always out and about and had a good time as a kid, so I've done alright. Danny Dyer
Nobody can tell you how to be a good wife or husband. Nicole Ari Parker
I did one or two plays at school. Once I played a tree, so I never thought I would be a good actor. Suraj Sharma
It's almost a joke how good I am at charades. Not to pat my own back, but I'm literally - I'm kind of unstoppable. Wilson Bethel
You've got so much confidence if you start making big putts because you know you just need to hit the greens, and you've got yourself a good opportunity for the birdies. Louis Oosthuizen
Johnny Carson was a big influence on me - all of those shows I did with him over the years, like, 100 of them, they made a bit of a name for me at the time, so that part of my life was very good. Don Rickles
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. Alfred Hitchcock
I am no longer afraid of becoming lost, because the journey back always reveals something new, and that is ultimately good for the artist. Billy Joel
Here's what happens in a play. You get involved in a situation where something is unbalanced. If nothing's unbalanced, there's no reason to have a play. If Hamlet comes home from school, and his dad's not dead and asks him if he's had a good time, it's boring. But if something's unbalanced, it must be returned to order. David Mamet
Our culture has created two almost irreconcilable descriptions of a 'good woman.' The first is the individual achiever; the second, the self-sacrificing domestic goddess. Martha Beck
It is with our passions as it is with fire and water, they are good servants, but bad masters. Aesop
Nothing in human nature is so God-like as the disposition to do good to our fellow-creatures. Samuel Richardson
I like to carry a concealer palette that has a green, a yellow, and a tan color. I like to carry the green one because when I have a pimple, it's good to use that to contrast the red. Then you put the yellow over it, and it helps it disappear. Francia Raisa
It costs you something to do good! Zora Neale Hurston
Dreams from 1991 are becoming reality. We will build good relations between nations and people. We will strive towards mutual respect and equality of every individual, sex, race and national or any other minority. Janez Drnovsek
My schedule is completely different doing a play than it is doing a movie, and I actually think it's a much harder schedule because you've got to do it eight times a week and you've got to do it good eight times a week and with different kinds of audiences who are cold or drunk or tired, whatever it is. Zoe Kazan
I don't think Indian actors are good. A couple of them are, like Anupam Kher, but not many are there like him in the industry. There are thousand of actors and actresses in the industry, but you can count on hand how many of them are really good; the rest of them are just pretty faces. Russell Peters
I think every chef should have a food truck. It's a good way to test the markets, to invest in meeting the future restaurant goers. Jose Andres Puerta
When I first started out in the entertainment business, I made a list of people I thought it would be good to meet. Not people who could give me a job or a deal, but people who could shake me up, teach me something, challenge my ideas about myself and the world. Brian Grazer
I don't think people spend nearly enough time thinking about what they like and what they're good at. Sam Altman
'Broadchurch' is very different, but it's equally as good as 'The Killing' - if not better. Arthur Darvill
I try to go throughout my daily life just as if nothing has changed, but you don't have much anonymity anymore, which feels really good. People come up, and say hi and they enjoy your work. Adam Lambert

I'm really good with fighting with my feet. Eric Roberts
As a kid, I was school swot, but I used to hang around the billiard halls, learning that Geordie sense of humour, mixing with low-lifes. They were the sort who'd pick your pocket and then say 'Here you are lad, here's tuppence, get yourself some chips'. I was a good rugby player, a good runner, so I fitted in at Cambridge quite easily. Sid Waddell
I have been an actor for most of my life. When I started out, I didn't think about anything except what was good for me. Like many movie stars, I became all wrapped up in myself. Kirk Douglas
I really have the good fortune that the actors who work with me on 'The Leftovers' are thoughtful, hard working, open people and generous people. Carrie Coon
I'm an optimist. I hope if a movie's good that it will be a success, but as we know, that's not always true, just because of popular taste, advertising, distribution patterns - there's lots of reasons. Willem Dafoe
There's always room for improvement. We have a nucleus that's pretty good. You want players that will help. Jason Kidd
I started to like my voice - the sound of it. So then I started to listen to it as something separate. To me, it sounded good that way as well. Alice Smith
Someone asked me about how it feels to wear the same costume every day and whether it gets tired or boring, but the good thing about it is that you know what to expect, every day. Allison Tolman
I know only that what is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after. Ernest Hemingway
But sports photography isn't something you just pick up overnight. You can't do it once a year for fun and expect to do a good job. And I take pride in what I do. Drew Carey
More brands are waking up to their social responsibility and doing good work through cause marketing campaigns. Yet too many still go about it the wrong way. I mean 'wrong' in two senses. Firstly, they are marketing ineffectively, and secondly, as a consequence their positive social impact is not maximized. Simon Mainwaring
When you grow up in an extended family, or in a stable neighborhood with two or three generations of families who live there, you feel seen. Not just the good things you've done, the stuff you put on your resume. You know they've seen you in your dark times, when you've messed up - but they're still there. Dean Ornish
Every kind of music is good, except the boring kind. Gioachino Rossini
There is good science you can do in space. There is stuff there you cannot do on Earth and we can gain understanding from it. Helen Sharman
The good news is when you open up in Vegas, you have a lot of friends, because they all come over to see your opening night. Yanni
Working in water is so difficult. But I liked having something very physical to do - you realize you're strong. It's a really good feeling. Astrid Berges-Frisbey
You learn, just as you learn good manners, how to approach things with a certain amount of diplomacy. Robert MacNeil
I think life is a matter of choices and that wherever we are, good or bad, is because of choices we make. Lou Holtz
If I wasn't Eddie Albert's son, I'd be someone else's. It gave me a chance to do a lot of traveling, but mostly I'm glad I'm his son because he's such a good man. Eddie Albert
There isn't quite a feeling you get from playing video games that you get when you're playing sports, which is like a sense of euphoria. You just get the satisfaction of doing something active and feeling good after. Patrick Chan
A good teacher must be able to put himself in the place of those who find learning hard. Eliphas Levi
Before the monopoly should be permitted, there must be reason to believe it will do some good - for society, and not just for monopoly holders. Lawrence Lessig
My own singing voice is not very good and I don't think that anybody really sings in their own voice. Jane Horrocks
Whenever I get a good script, I don't care whether it's telly or theatre or big screen - I'm not bothered. Pete Postlethwaite
I try not to give too much advice, really, because people have to do their things their way. I got lots of advice when I was young, and I ignored most of it - the good and the bad. Patti Smith
I don't think I could ever have a desk job, so I get to be mobile. I'm on set. I get to walk around kind of doing my own thing, being independent - it's just a really good vibe. Everyone on a film set is very happy, and they all love their jobs, so it's a cool environment to be a part of. Jean-Luc Bilodeau
I love the idea of getting up early on Sundays and walking to the market to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables. It's a good way to start my day, and it makes me feel like I've accomplished something before other people are even awake. Mandy Moore
I've always been a fan of Nigerian artist D'banj. He's now signed to Kanye West's Good Music label. Estelle
Over the years, I have realized that there's more to a film's fate than just good acting and a solid script. It needs to be marketed well. It's the package that sells - the songs, action, actors, etc. Randeep Hooda
I love yoga. I can practice it wherever I am, at home, in my hotel room... I like playing tennis, too, but that's more of a hobby because I'm not very good! Sigrid Agren
The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion. Thomas Paine
It's just about going out and getting the shot, so I have a great understanding of how to execute it, so that really helps me, and also having a good understanding of all the action that I'm shooting, it helps me in determining how I'm going to capture it. David R. Ellis
Actors are born, good actors are trained. Dancers are born, good dancers are trained. Mithun Chakraborty
There is nothing so good for the human soul as the discovery that there are ancient and flourishing civilized societies which have somehow managed to exist for many centuries and are still in being though they have had no help from the traveler in solving their problems. Walter Lippmann
I'm an exercise and yoga junkie and I feel good. Lainie Kazan
Really good books need a chaos element: something weird or inexplicable. Michel Faber
The fall of 1912 my fielding was above the average, but my hitting was not so good. However, I was the talk of the town because of my peculiar way of catching a fly ball. They later named it the Vest-Pocket Catch. Rabbit Maranville
The great thing about behavioural psychology and economics is that they help us to see that there are actually pretty good reasons why human beings swing from greed to fear, and why we're not really calculating machines or utility-maximisers. Niall Ferguson
I think maybe my mom thought that Katharine Hepburn would be a good role model of, like, a strong, smart, independent woman. Maybe she steered me in that direction. You know, because she was really so ahead of her time. Gillian Jacobs
The biggest insecurity I had was my singing. Even though I had sold 70 million records, there was this feeling like, I'm not good at this. Jennifer Lopez
By concentrating on what is good in people, by appealing to their idealism and their sense of justice, and by asking them to put their faith in the future, socialists put themselves at a severe disadvantage. Ian Mcewan
The fact is that surveys which media people openly admit to show that fewer than twelve percent of their customers believe they're doing a good job, while the average profit margin in television is in the neighborhood of eighty percent. L. Neil Smith
I have always been good at auditioning, but maybe because I had a good trick at the beginning. I would pretend that my agent gave me the wrong scene or lines. They would take pity on me and hand me the right scene. I would act like I had never seen this before - and then do pretty well considering I had already rehearsed it. James Marsden
It's so worth-while being a judge, because, if I make good, I can help prove that a woman's place is as much on the bench, in City Council, or in Congress, as in the home. Florence Ellinwood Allen
I bought an insurance policy covering the inheritance tax my kids will have to pay when we die, which I thought was a good bit of forward thinking. And I always know I'm going to have enough for tax because I make sure I keep it back in my business account. Mark Billingham
I cycled when I was at high school, then reconnected with bikes in New York in the late '70s. It was a good way of getting around the clubs and galleries of the Lower East Side and Soho. David Byrne
I like a little bit of revolution. I think it's a very good hobby for a young woman. Better than squash. Caitlin Moran
So I got a chance to meet a whole bunch of those old real, real rough but gentle men. They lived hard, but they lived good - in one sense, you know. But you had a lot of fun. Didn't make much money, but you had a lot of fun. Little Milton
You and I are, by birth, by nature, and by choice, inwardly depraved, which is to say that we are entirely corrupt. That's not to say that we have no good in us; we do. However, anything good in us has been tainted with evil. It touches everything. Without the redeeming power of Christ we cannot halt our own moral slide. Charles R. Swindoll
As a director/writer/producer, all you ever want is to work with actors who make you look better, who make the work you do seem as good as it can be and even better than it is. J. J. Abrams
I've always been quite mature because of the way my parents brought me up. They were very good at talking to me like a person rather than a baby, and I was around so many actors and directors from such a young age because my dad is an actor. I was more comfortable with adults rather than actually being an adult child. Saoirse Ronan
This sounds like my autobiography, but I thought this would be a good time to sound off about myself, as I think that I have been silent too long about my views and opinions. Bob Kane
I edit as I write. I revise endlessly. I don't go forward until I know that what I've written is as good as I can make it. Anita Shreve
I think we have a good team, but soccer fans will know that we're in a really tough group. The three teams in our group are really strong. The Czech Republic is a very good team, Italy is traditionally a powerhouse, and Ghana is one of the best teams in Africa. Claudio Reyna
If you want to experience joy in your life, you have to be able to step outside yourself and become part of a cause that is much larger than you; one that brings a greater good to a greater community. Srikumar Rao
We can overcome evil with greater good. Laura Bush
My frontal lobe doesn't function well. When I'm out with friends, I typically have a cup of coffee, and that's not good for my sleep. And yet I'll do it again, night after night - 'Oh why did I have that cup of coffee?' I can't stop it because I love it. May-Britt Moser
Writing is very good for household tasks. Because you'd rather fix a dripping tap or paint an old wall - you'd rather do almost anything than sit and write. I have to reach a point of obsession in order to write, and so I find starting a book incredibly difficult. Damon Galgut
The other puppeteers are really good, often when they are singing together, they go left, right, left... But if they are all moving to the left, I'm moving to the right. Big Bird and Oscar, that's okay, because they are individuals anyway. Caroll Spinney
When I pick up the ball and it feels nice and light and small I know I'm going to have a good day. But if I picked it up and it's big and heavy, I know I'm liable to get into a little trouble. Bob Feller
Believe me, when I finish shooting 'Mad Men,' there's a huge chunk of time where I have a really hard time leaving my house without fake lashes on. Which is a complex because I'm not very good at applying fake lashes. Jessica Pare
'Smallville' is like a Domino's pizza. While you're eating, you're thinking, 'This is good, and it reminds me of pizza, but there's not enough flavor in each bite.' That's the feeling you have the entire time with 'Smallville' - that it's just about to be good, but it never is. Ira Glass
I never actually had a guitar lesson. I taught myself the guitar from piano exercise books, which led me to have a pretty good technique on the guitar and allowed me to find different ways to do things. Trevor Rabin
Unlike with any other art form, filmmakers have this unique web of festivals. There are hundreds. It is a democratic system in which you submit films, and if they are good enough, they play. The only barrier to entry is the submission fee. Jason Reitman
The twists and turns of your life can be so unexpected, and that's a good thing to learn. Christina Baker Kline
I like to take every day just searching my own heart, making sure that I'm on course, and I'm doing what God wants me to do. I'm real good with not looking to the critics and looking straight ahead. Joel Osteen
I feel like I'm at a really happy, good space. Kim Kardashian
Radio is the art form of sports casting. If you're any good, you can do a great job on radio. Chick Hearn
I'm at the age where I've got to prove that I'm just as good as I never was. Rex Harrison

The simple things in life ground me and keep me focused so I'm able to do a good job with what is in front of me. Kevin Eubanks
I knew I would read all kinds of books and try to get at what it is that makes good writers good. But I made no promises that I would write books a lot of people would like to read. Carl Sandburg
When I'm makin' lectures to these universities, I tell 'em I like that little building because when I run short a audience, if I can get three people in there I've got a good crowd. Howard Finster
'Rent' was a special project for me. It was my first notable screenplay job. I worked with two wonderful directors on it, starting with Spike Lee in the summer of 2001. I wrote a draft for Spike and he was really good to me. Stephen Chbosky
You really can't do a remake. I mean, 'King Kong' needed its turn to be remade. It needed an update. But the 'Bad News Bears,' or 'The Shaggy D.A.,' those are classic movies. I think they did a good job of remaking them, but it's just not the same thing. Nobody can top Tatum O'Neal. It just isn't the same. Carly Schroeder
They're lots of good Americans here in New York who have common sense and who believe in free markets and free people and limited government under our Constitution. Those are the principles I've always stood for. I know they're right, and that's what I'm going to stand for. Wendy E. Long
If you give people peanuts, you get monkeys. So if you want good people that are highly qualified, make the amount of money available for them to go out and do the job. Lindsay Fox
I like strong girls, as long as they don't get snappish. And furthermore I think it important that you are good buddies and she does not get angry when you don't have your day. Jonathan Brandis
I have an awfully good life. Ann Richards
Ballet is such a disciplined craft and it has given me a good grounding. Jennifer Ellison
I love to take care of people, so I think I'd be a good vet. I always wanted to be a vet when I was little. Jennifer Love Hewitt
If you look in real life, it is very hard to describe people as good people, bad people, heroes or villains. People aren't bad people. They all have their justifications. Lennie James
I still love football, though, and I think cooking is like football. It's not a job, it's a passion. When you become good at it, it's a dream job and financially you need never to worry. Ever. Gordon Ramsay
I'm a good shot and I love guns - I own several. Amber Heard
As you get better and better working out, there's no one who can keep up with you running. If you don't have a good dog, it's going to be the most lonesome training camp you'll ever have. George Foreman
One game, one pitch can change everything for a hitter. The way I like to approach it is that every at-bat is its own unique opportunity to go out there and do something really good. Anthony Rizzo
Silence is golden when you can't think of a good answer. Muhammad Ali
All personality traits have their good side and their bad side. But for a long time, we've seen introversion only through its negative side and extroversion mostly through its positive side. Susan Cain
I would've loved to have been in a band, but sadly I just wasn't good enough. Tony Blair
I think most people know inherently that good wins. Ginnifer Goodwin
My son, who's on the spectrum is a very rigid thinker. He needs clear-cut definitions of right and wrong. Anything hazy or gray confuses him. For instance, if I try to get him to see that a friend behaved badly, he'll often get upset with me because a friend is a 'good guy' by definition, in his book. Claire Scovell LaZebnik
I mean, I sing. But I don't think I'm a good enough singer to do any kind of musical. Christina Ricci
Oh man. If I had magic powers... I would hope that I would use them for good. I think I would. But I would do something pretty trivial like making traffic disappear. Nick Stahl
Sometimes the writing can be so good that the actor doesn't really have to do anything. Nick Nolte
So many financial dreams are thwarted by the failure to act upon good intentions. Suze Orman
It's actually harder than it looks to be a good pundit on the air. You've got to have stuff to say. Tina Brown
I was a hostess in a restaurant in New York when I was 21, and I was too good of an employee. I was putting most of my energy into that instead of acting. But my father told my sister and me to look at whatever needed to be done and do that job well, no matter what it was. Emily Deschanel
I'm pretty good at weaseling my way into a job, even if I have no business being there. Aubrey Plaza
As an actor, whatever I get the opportunity to do, if it has a good story then I'm in. I thought 'Dead End' had a great story; 'Nightmare on Elm Street,' of course, was probably the first real horror film I was in. Lin Shaye
I do really enjoy Jay McInerney's wine writing. He's a good writer. He brings his fiction-writing skillset. He's not afraid to put wine in kind of a racy context and speak very candidly about it. Mike D
I probably get strangers coming up to me two or three times a week to just say something nice. I get more than my share of compliments as I walk through my daily life. I'm not having to show off or make a point about how good I am at doing something. I think I've always kind of been that way. Eddie Vedder
To understand me, you have to meet me and be around me. And then only if I'm in a good mood - don't meet me in a bad mood. Avril Lavigne
I love giving gifts and I love receiving them. I really like giving little kids extravagant gifts. You see their little faces light up and they get excited. If it's a really good gift, I love receiving it, like jewels, small islands. Gina Gershon
I think the only kind of acceptable evangelization is the evangelization of good example. Andrew Greeley
It seems to me that most characters, in anything, are flawed in some way, just like most people. You look for the good in the flawed people and vice versa, and then try and make them appealing in some way. Aidan Gillen
God has to let you be there, and then you just have to have good fortune for whatever reason. I'm enjoying every moment of my life. We are so fortunate just to be alive. Randy Owen
Even when I do roles that are really profoundly abusive, like, I would say, in 'Deadwood' - there's a guy who's a breeding ground for ignorance and hurtful behavior - the fact that people are so taken aback by that is a good thing because they're looking at themselves, and there's a part of me in there, too. Michael Harney
NI love watching science fiction because I feel like when it's done well, it's not just monsters, but philosophy. Really good science fiction like, '2001,' for example, or the first 'Matrix.' But it takes someone who's got a brain and thinks in order to do really good science fiction. Alan Arkin
One of the things that separates a good genre movie from a bad genre movie, I always think, ironically, is when you care about the people. The dime a dozen ones are where you don't have any awareness of the character. Ethan Hawke
We are all ready to be savage in some cause. The difference between a good man and a bad one is the choice of the cause. William James
I think there's a certain objectivity that comes from being Canadian. You're partly British and partly American; you have a good bird's-eye view of both countries. So much of the comedy that comes out of Canada is impersonation - it's less 'look at me' than it is 'look at me playing other people.' Eric McCormack
I'm a good dad; I spend a lot of time with my kids. Steve Zahn
I love hot yoga. I go to a sculpt class with weights. That's really good for the core and it's obviously super hot. I love cardio bar. I'm not a big gym fan, so I like to go to classes. Naya Rivera
I'm really good at solitaire and I can turn my arms in full circles. Skylar Laine
Do not consider painful what is good for you. Euripides
That's healthy and good for us that there are people who are prepared to question what we are doing. Martin McGuinness
It's one of the terrors of old age that your body is not your friend. Or to be out on the street and be frightened of someone because you're not in good shape and can't do anything about it. Israel Horovitz
There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first kind is excellent, the second good, and the third kind useless. Niccolo Machiavelli
I wish I had the guts and talent to be a good comedian. I love the idea of it, yet I'm terrified of it. I'd also love to play music in front of people. Charlie Rowe
I'm really good at making software for publishing. Matt Mullenweg
I have no interest in doing anything other than good work. Andrea Riseborough
I have one good girlfriend and then most of my friends are guys. Which I love, because they're just like so easygoing and I love to play like Xbox and just chill out when I'm not working, so boys are probably the way to go for me. Ashley Benson
A good script makes our job a lot easier. Clark Duke
If you put enough smart people together in one space, good things happen. Erik Hersman
I don't want a flashy car, just something that would allow me to stop using the Tube. And it would be good not to have to rely on my mum all the time, particularly when I have to listen to her singing in her car. Andy Murray
I wasn't born Austrian; I wasn't born German. My roots are from Africa, and I do not have any reason for not wanting to celebrate that. Every time that I can, I like to kind of mention it, you know, just to keep people sort of knowing exactly what's going on. My French is pretty good, but I'm still African, thank you very much. Jessye Norman
All outward forms of religion are almost useless, and are the causes of endless strife. Believe there is a great power silently working all things for good, behave yourself and never mind the rest. Beatrix Potter
I'm actually a very bad surfer, which is good because everybody likes a bad surfer. Nobody likes a good surfer. Liev Schreiber
The good thing is I didn't feel like anyone was going to judge me on 'Glee.' Samuel Larsen
In rare cases, I've had music before I shot the movie. I think that for 'Good Will Hunting' I had an Elliot Smith record or a couple of them and I just somehow felt like the sound had something to it that reminded me of the story. So in that case there was music beforehand. Gus Van Sant
Los Angeles is such a great meritocracy. Where can someone with my background - don't have the right family background, the right religion, the right provenance or whatever you want to call it - I come here and I'm accepted. The city's been good to me. And I want to give back. Eli Broad
I started out doing music videos and photography, and I always loved writing. Filmmaking seemed to be a good compilation of all these skills in a way that allowed me to tell a story 'greater than the sum of its parts.' Brendan Fletcher
When I started out as an actor I knew very little, which was probably a good thing. I was totally open. You don't judge yourself, you do it. Matt Dillon
Just keep thinking about the good side of ADD - the creativity and the originality it can stimulate. David Neeleman
I strongly believe that crossing the aisle for the good of the American people is more important than party politics. Gabrielle Giffords
It is a governing principle of nature, that the agency which can produce most good, when perverted from its proper aim, is most productive of evil. James F. Cooper
I believe to go along to get along is unpatriotic. I believe that agreeing with your government on everything they do is unpatriotic. I believe a patriot stands up and holds your government's feet to the fire. Because if you do that, you will get good government. Jesse Ventura
I'm good at cold reading; I've made a living doing this, and most of the time I do audition, but it's very tough. It's a very uncomfortable, awkward process. You never get used to it, really. Courtney Gains
I always had the sense that nothing was never good enough - striving for perfection. My mother and I had a sort of typical mother-daughter relationship. Dorothy Hamill
Being able to improvise is the basis for creating all characters and situations, for everything to do with performing, really. And it's good therapy as well. Chris Kattan
The media only wants to get the view of the flaming radicals because they make better copy than those of us who are more sensible. I'm a feminist and I think I've done a lot of good. Betty Dodson
Quality attracts quality. People want to be on a good show. Oscar Nunez
Husbands never become good; they merely become proficient. H. L. Mencken
Advocacy groups and voters are not wrong to push candidates to declare their position clearly on policy issues. That is good citizenship. Hard questions should be asked of every candidate, every politician. And those public servants should be prepared to answer, but in their own words. Mark McKinnon
Some of my favorite movies are just movies that are just good stories, and aren't necessarily big budget movies or anything. Miranda Cosgrove
I wish I were as good a man as my son is. Mario Cuomo
I'm not an Internet person that reads behind-the-scenes stuff. I see a trailer, and if it looks good, then I go. That's that. Evan Goldberg
I'm not a pretty princess, and I'm aware of that, so I like music that is really intense, really bold, and characters that in a way almost have a dark side and are kind of evil because, for me, that's when I feel my strongest and fiercest, when I'm not necessarily the good girl. Ashley Wagner
Walter Scott has no business to write novels, especially good ones. It is not fair. He has fame and profit enough as a poet, and should not be taking the bread out of the mouths of other people. Jane Austen
Well, I just hope we can have peace, and I hope it'll do some good. Samantha Smith
Being on a successful television show is a good thing. It's steady work. It's a chance to work with a group of people in an intimate way... where you develop a sort of shorthand with each other, and a trust. Kelly Rowan
But typically for a project like the Mac, the size we had was pretty good. And it has different stages. The team grows as you have to write manuals and do testing... though the Mac had no formal testing. Andy Hertzfeld
Chicago is a pretty good town. Joe Torre
I've always been really curious about things and slightly confused by the world, and I think someone who feels that way is in a good position to be the one asking questions. Terry Gross
Going to the golf course every day for work? That's a good job. Dennis Quaid
Be good to others, that will protect you against evil. Abu Bakr
I'm always worried about the sitter - are they cold, are they hot, are they comfortable? Photography today is so accurate and so good that it's really so much easier just to take photographs and work from them. Paul Emsley
Legitimate profit is good. What's bad is profiteering. Shaffi Mather
Races always are good to show where you are reaching in your training as well as to keep you sharpened. Every race, in my program, I put it in a special way like a ladder, climbing up slowly and slowly to the next one. I see where my training is, and that is like a test. David Rudisha
Junipers are generally chosen for the latter purpose, as they can be more readily bent into the desired form; the eyes and tongue are added afterwards, and the representation altogether is really good. Robert Fortune
Liberalism does not preclude an organisation of the flow of money in which some channels are used in decision making while others are only good for the payment of debts. Jean-Francois Lyotard
I like the good life too much, I'm not good at going on stage night after night and on wet Wednesday afternoons. Anthony Hopkins
A lot of the lessons that are taught in football will promote success in anything you get into after football; for me, it just happens to be music. Being disciplined. Good character. Trying to do the right thing, and working hard. Sam Hunt
I love when I teach my son a good lesson. But I love it even more when he teaches me. Brad Meltzer
The Book of Mormon is our handbook of instructions as we travel the pathway from bad to good to better and strive to have our hearts changed. David A. Bednar
Hundreds of people who've never written before send in 'Dr. Who' scripts. They may have good ideas, but what they fail to realise is that writing for TV is incredibly complicated. They have no idea how difficult it is and what the financial commitment is. Douglas Adams
I can play the piano. I started off with lessons, and then, as we always had a piano in the house, I would play around and became quite good. Louise Nurding
Some people put down all presidents. If you say anything good about any of them, they think you're supporting everything they do. Neil Young
There are good reasons why natural selection has become widely accepted as an explanation of evolutionary development. When applied to mammals and other large animals, it fits perfectly. But we cannot assume that all evolutionary steps arise from selection, particularly when looking at smaller animals. John Tyler Bonner
Goodness is about character - integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people. Dennis Prager
It was expected of all good middle-class Indian people to build India and, as you know, Indians - when we say, 'build India,' it was all about being an accountant, a lawyer, an engineer. So it was this idea that professionals would build the country. Shekhar Kapur
In the case of Stalinism, people actually distorted science because it was for the good of the Communist Party. Richard Dawkins
You don't make a decision about being a writer. There was a point, aged 21, when it became clear that this is who I am. The choice is how good you are going to be at it and how hard you are going to work. Philipp Meyer
We expected to have a good time with Clive Anderson 'cause I've always liked him, his shows. Maurice Gibb
There is no principle worth the name if it is not wholly good. Mahatma Gandhi
A good part's a good part. You can play serious and funny moments with a well-written role. John Krasinski
I should like to save the Shire, if I could - though there have been times when I thought the inhabitants too stupid and dull for words, and have felt that an earthquake or an invasion of dragons might be good for them. J. R. R. Tolkien
A narrow compass! and yet there Dwelt all that 's good, and all that 's fair; Give me but what this riband bound, Take all the rest the sun goes round. Edmund Waller
We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face - a war on workers. And you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party. And there's only one way to beat and win that war - the one thing about working people is, we like a good fight. James P. Hoffa
'Home And Away' was my first big break. I was already a fan of the show, so to suddenly be on it was really good. Christopher Egan
Just because something has tubes doesn't mean it's the best. I mean, tubes are obviously good, but the circuit of this thing is designed well and it sounds good. Dweezil Zappa
I think I got a lot of life skills; I got a lot of wisdom; I've seen a lot of bad things happen to a lot of good people. Young Jeezy
The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck. Channing Pollock

Feeling good about your life, but not expressing a heartfelt 'thank you,' is like wrapping a gift for someone and never giving it to them. Chip Conley
I think that, for physicians who want to become writers, they have the material, the smarts, they have the logic, they know the stories; it's just a matter of being able to connect with their emotional sides - that's the key to writing good fiction. Tess Gerritsen
The immediate effect of the deficit is to make you feel good, like when you go on a trip and pay later. You feel good, and then you get a hangover. The deficit makes you feel good - until you pay later. Franco Modigliani
I confess it is beyond our power to awaken the heart, but ordinarily this way does good. Thomas Hooker
I think, if you can, it's OK to put something in a movie because it makes you feel good. Colin Trevorrow
'Legion' was a lot of fun to shoot. It was a real unique apocalypse scenario that takes place in a diner out in the desert. Very much like a drive-in B-movie, but in a good way. Dennis Quaid
When evil men destroy, good men must build and bind. Anas Aremeyaw Anas
The job is trying to create movie shots that have depth, that have the meanings you need them to have, and then good enough so that they will add something to the final picture. They will make the picture; they'll get into the picture, and give them what they need. It's an interesting job. Robert Forster
Writers need to be tough. This is not for the weak of will. And we have to realize that, yeah, it's never good enough. It's not like fixing a car where it's precise and we know what the end result will be definitively. David Morrell
I don't think people are fools, and I think they deserve a good attitude and smart entertainment. Tatyana Tolstaya
If I'm remembered for having done a few good things, and if my presence here has sparked some good energies, that's plenty. Sidney Poitier
To speak ill of others is a dishonest way of praising ourselves. Nothing is often a good thing to say, and always a clever thing to say. Will Durant
For styling, I don't like a lot of mousse. I do use Sally Hershberger's Texture Blast, which is like a hair spray, but just at the roots. I have really good hair, and I don't like to plaster it. Martha Stewart
Well, my take was people of Minnesota, these are good people. They're in many ways more generous than other parts of the country. They're better educated than other parts of the country. Peter Agre
No man can understand why a woman shouldn't prefer a good reputation to a good time. Helen Rowland
To Adam Paradise was home. To the good among his descendants home is paradise. Augustus Hare
Truthfully, I've never seen myself as being too thin. Sometimes I'll look at photos and be like, 'Oh, that's not a good look.' But generally speaking, I'm not too thin. Rachel Zoe
I've done some good work and some not-good work. Sally Field
Because of my Asian-ness, I couldn't be anonymous - what I said, what I ate, what I did at the weekend were startlingly different to what everyone else did. I was also a performer, quick and chameleon-like, good at accents, so that made me stand out. Sanjeev Bhaskar
And luckily, therefore the good old days return. The traditional art of driving counts again, and it is all about good tactics, skills and reflexes instead of simple power. Jacky Ickx
Certainly not every good program is object-oriented, and not every object-oriented program is good. Bjarne Stroustrup
The good news is dollars don't vote, people do. Dave Brat
It might feel good to be out of your body for awhile. But you can't stay like that forever. Alex Chiu
I applied a lot of the same principles I used in hockey into my acting. I might have had some naive ambitions of making the NHL, but thank God, playing hockey gave me a good foundation for everything else. Vincent Piazza
Your average pop song or film is a very sophisticated item, with very sophisticated ways of listening and viewing that we have not really consciously developed over the years - because we were having such a good time. Paul Muldoon
I don't plan. I don't think, 'I have to do this kind of part 'cause I've done that kind of part.' I'm not a very good planner. Rupert Graves
I do love email. Wherever possible I try to communicate asynchronously. I'm really good at email. Elon Musk
I find mediocrity hard. I find that whole area difficult. I'm a very passionate person; I care very much about what I do. I believe I give it a lot, so it's gotta be good; otherwise, what's the point? Phoebe Philo
He did not know what love was. And he did not know what good it was. But he knew he carried it around with him, a scabrous spot of rot, of contagion, for which there was no cure. Harry Crews
The only thing I was any good at was music. Don Gibson
Good writing of course requires talent, and no one can teach you to have talent. Peter Carey
Emotions are contagious. We've all known it experientially. You know after you have a really fun coffee with a friend, you feel good. When you have a rude clerk in a store, you walk away feeling bad. Daniel Goleman
Start-up success is not a consequence of good genes or being in the right place at the right time. Success can be engineered by following the right process, which means it can be learned, which means it can be taught. Eric Ries
I really like feeling connected to people and feeling like I have a good, solid sense of empathy. Aimee Bender
What good is speed if the brain has oozed out on the way. St. Jerome
A family is very special. So when a family splits up, it's not good, it's never good. Aung San Suu Kyi

Nothing is so good that impious and sacrilegious and wicked people cannot contort its proper benefit into evil. Giordano Bruno
The hardest thing to do in movies is be a day-part player. You have to go in, make your mark, and get out. There's a lot of leading actors who are not good for a lot of a movie, and then suddenly they have good moments, and they're like stepping-stones across a particularly feisty stream. They build careers out of that. Brian Cox
We're constantly told that all cultures are equal, and that every belief system is as good as the next. And it led to a kind of - and generally, that America was to be known for its flaws rather than its virtues. Frank Miller
As Mick Jagger will tell you, performing is an aerobic work-out. I've got the bass guitar, which is the heaviest of all the instruments, and I'm a little girl, in boiling-hot leather under the lights. You have to keep the fitness level up if you want to look good up there. Suzi Quatro
If you get criticized, good - I don't think people get criticized enough. People talk behind your back and they criticize you, but they don't often come up and say it to you. Ian Mckellen
To be a good actor... it is necessary to have a firmly tempered soul, to be surprised at nothing, to resume each minute the laborious task that has barely just been finished. Sarah Bernhardt
War in men's eyes shall be A monster of iniquity In the good time coming. Nations shall not quarrel then, To prove which is the stronger; Nor slaughter men for glory's sake; - Wait a little longer. Charles Mackay
Politics was put in front of me. I do politics because it's the vehicle for change and because I happen to be good at it... I had this sort of calm fearlessness, that some would call foolishness. David Mixner
I learned to play football in the streets. Every day of school, everyone came and played football. The street is a good school, and you learn many things there - resiliency, how to play against older players, and how to put up with or dodge kicks. Sergio Aguero
I always knew that food and wine were vital, with my mother being Italian and a good cook. Robert Mondavi
If we invest in researching and developing energy technology, we'll do some real good in the long run, rather than just making ourselves feel good today. But climate change is not the only challenge of the 21st century, and for many other global problems we have low-cost, durable solutions. Bjorn Lomborg
I don't have time to celebrate accomplishments. When good things happen, it's great, and obviously I get excited inside. But soon I gotta do something else; I gotta keep doing more stuff. The whole world will never be familiar, so I'm constantly going to be on a quest to get familiar. Clinton Sparks
I did write a letter to the archdiocese who'd banned the song, Only the Good Die Young, asking them to ban my next record. Billy Joel
I don't like to sing things that just sound like they're going straight down the tubes, and they're circling the drain, and there's no hope. It doesn't feel good in any way to sing. Jakob Dylan
I cannot feel my legs from the waist down any longer. But who cares? I look good and that's all that matters. And when I die of hypothermia for wearing formal shorts in winter, tell them to put that on my tombstone. Eliza Coupe
I just want people to remember me like I remember Buster Keaton. When they talk about Buster Keaton or Gene Kelly, people say, 'Ah yes, they good.' Maybe one day, they remember Jackie Chan that way. Jackie Chan
Good judgement comes from experience. Sometimes, experience comes from bad judgement. Christian Slater
I think I'm a better doctor than I am a husband. I give myself a good grade as a doctor, then the next best grade as a father, and the worst grade as a husband. Mehmet Oz

Music reality shows are a good thing, especially for those seeking a career in music. Kailash Kher
To be a good draftsman was to me a blessing. John James Audubon
I have to make myself write, sometimes. In the space between poems, you somehow forget how to do it, where to begin. It was good to be task - based for a while. I just came downstairs each day, picked the one I was going to do that day, and wrote. Simon Armitage
Bad people doing bad things is not interesting. What I find interesting is good people doing bad things. Amy Bloom
It is good to know what a man is, and also what the world takes him for. But you do not understand him until you have learnt how he understands himself. F. H. Bradley
When you're trying to come up with a good approach to reporting on the bleeding edge of where the conversation's moving, you're just leaving a lot of people who aren't on the bleeding edge of that conversation out. Ezra Klein
It's very difficult to photograph an opera. And they messed up on it. It just wasn't there. And I don't blame the Gershwins for taking it away. Of course, if they had gotten the original company to have done it, it would have been very good. Cab Calloway
That's probably when I get the most angry at American movies, when they just so cynically manipulate the audience without even trying to give a good story. Gene Siskel
The thing I tried to remember when I was younger was 'Do something that's at least as good, if not better, than the last thing you did.' So I started with Brian De Palma and Sean Penn. I had a pretty high bar to start with. John C. Reilly
I do want to write about Jane Whitefield again, but only when I have a good enough idea - something I've figured out about her that's news and that's worth a reader's time. Thomas Perry
I started out from a pretty modest background, so I always had a pretty good sense of money. I always had to work for my money, save my own money, I always bought my own stuff with my money... trying not to waste money unnecessarily. Marco Arment
The four characteristics of humanism are curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and belief in the human race. E. M. Forster
When you think positive, good things happen. Matt Kemp
In improvising, you've got your scale; you've got the notes that are going to sound good with other notes, the intervals that are going to sound good. But you've also got all the chromatic possibilities, the possibilities of sounding dissident, of being unexpected. Eleanor Catton
My wife, as proud as she was of me, hated show business for good reasons. There was something about the spouse always being pushed out of the way, shoved aside. She wanted to get away from it. Dick Van Dyke
Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy, you can't build on it it's only good for wallowing in. Katherine Mansfield
Like a good general, I treated everyone who wasn't with me as against me. Michael Dukakis
I don't hit it as far as a lot of guys do, so I have to be in the right spot in the fairway to score, and that means driving it well. The two biggest keys for me are to make a good transition and to keep my hands ahead of the clubhead through impact. I want to feel as if my swing is two swings: one going back and another coming down. Zach Johnson
The only advantage of not being too good a housekeeper is that your guests are so pleased to feel how very much better they are. Eleanor Roosevelt

I'm a very competitive person. But I think that's good. Janet Jackson

It's always at the back of my mind that acting might come to an end for me when Harry Potter finishes. I don't know if I'm good enough to have a long career. I've got a bit of an inferiority complex about my acting. My self-esteem is quite low in that sense. Rupert Grint
I don't think many actors are the best judge of careers. I think generally we have good instincts about what we can do in terms of acting. And often they become directors, which I don't want to be. Hugh Jackman

It is a common assumption that a person's good works will get them into Heaven. Monica Johnson

What is the good of drawing conclusions from experience? I don't deny we sometimes draw the right conclusions, but don't we just as often draw the wrong ones? Georg C. Lichtenberg

When I was in high school, there was 'Superbad' and 'The Girl Next Door' and 'Wedding Crashers' and all these great movies.

You will most appreciate 'Freddy and Fredericka' if you are familiar with the story of the Fall, the Good Hermit, 'Tom Jones,' 'Huckleberry Finn,' 'Paradise Lost,' 'Henry V,' and 'My Cousin Vinny.' That doesn't mean that you can't enjoy or understand it on an emotional level, free of all allusion, which is the test of any book of fiction. Mark Helprin
People should be allowed to marry, and gay marriage should be out there. If a man or a woman has a good partner and they love each other with their heart and soul, let them marry. I am very much for gay marriage. Pierce Brosnan
People don't want drama 365 days a year. I'm a sense of relief; it's my job to take your mind off what's bad for that brief second you're in the room with me, regardless of shape, race, colour or anything. It brings people together, and it makes me feel good about what I'm doing. Kevin Hart
The key to any good comic strip or television sitcom is to reset the board at the end of the episode because people like familiarity. Jeff Kinney

I have American friends in France, and when I meet with them, they tell me about everything that is wrong with France.

Maelle Gavet
There are new words now that excuse everybody. Give me the good old days of heroes and villains, the people you can bravo or hiss. There was a truth to them that all the slick credulity of today cannot touch. Bette Davis
When I got to France I realized I didn't know very much about food at all. I'd never had a real cake. I'd had those cakes from cake mixes or the ones that have a lot of baking powder in them. A really good French cake doesn't have anything like that in it - it's all egg power. Julia Child
I want to look good when people see me. Christina Aguilera

It took 35 years, but the time was well spent and I think I have established a good stake in the future. Johnny Olson

All the punishment in the world will not reform a man, unless he knows that he who inflicts it upon him does it for the sake of reformation, and really and truly loves him, and has his good at heart.

I had to learn - since I'm divorced now and everyone is like, 'Oh my God, you're single, what's going on?' - that if I don't like to spend time with myself, how can I ask someone else to enjoy spending time with me? I'm getting to learn how to enjoy my solitude and have a good time. Gabrielle Union

The climate suits me, and London has the greatest serious music that you can hear any day of the week in the world - you think it's going to be Vienna or Paris or somewhere, but if you go to Vienna or Paris and say, 'Let's hear some good music', there isn't any. David Attenborough
I think I'm kind of attracted to the material more than the medium. I'm not opposed to doing a television show, though. I actually think there are a couple of good ones. And there is some terrible theater. Film is a very different kind of acting. Dan Futterman

The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them. Mark Twain

I'm always in the theater seeing everything, good or bad. Logan Lerman
Does film music really matter to the average moviegoer? A great score, after all, can't save a bad film, and a bad score - so it's said - can't sink a good one. Terry Teachout
While few human challenges are greater than that of being good parents, few opportunities offer greater potential for joy. Surely, no more important work is to be done in this world than preparing our children to be God-fearing, happy, honorable, and productive. James E. Faust

I believe in love, children and being a good person. Leighton Meester
First of all, I'm a Midwesterner, being from Kansas, and Chicago is basically a big Midwestern cow town. It was built from the stockyards, and everyone is very friendly, and it's at the edge of the tallgrass prairie. There's just a good feel to it. Bill Kurtis
I never thought about being the highest paid. I just wanted to be someone that people cared about watching, and I feel I'm a good actor. Jan-Michael Vincent

Confidence is everything. Confidence is what makes that simple white tee and jeans look good. Ciara

The hardest thing to write was explaining what anxiety feels like. Every time I'd try to really write about what it feels like to have an anxiety attack, I would actually have an anxiety attack. It was good material but so incredibly uncomfortable. Jenny Lawson
I'm a good person, but with many defects. Enrique Iglesias
Monterey, I remember, but I seem to remember the Fillmore West, that we played the week before Monterey. That was much more memorable for me. The first time in San Francisco. They were good gigs. Roger Daltrey
What I love is a good role. In the theatre, there is just a canon of extraordinary roles, the quality of character is amazing, but I also love working in front of a camera. It was the first one for me; as a kid I was in front of a camera. I feel at home. Megan Follows
The difference between an amateur and a professional is in their habits. An amateur has amateur habits. A professional has professional habits. We can never free ourselves from habit. But we can replace bad habits with good ones. Steven Pressfield

I would consider myself to be a moderate Republican, but more important than that, I believe our system of government is the best system there is... and while I have no illusions of changing the world, I've had good opportunities in life, and I believe there's an obligation to give something back by participating. Pat Meehan
We have to compete in a universe of 200 networks, so we have to carve out our own niche, and to me, that niche is just basic shoe-leather journalism with some good journalists at the helm you can trust as presenters. Walter Isaacson
Jews have always thought that having someone elevated with his head above the grass was not good for the Jews. I never felt that way. I believe that you have to stand up. Ed Koch

I would be a traitor to these poor burned bodies if I came here to talk good fellowship. Rose Schneiderman

So then you have to say to yourself: Do I want to be rich, or do I want to do good work? Jackie Cooper
I think fear is what keeps us from going over the edge. I mean, as a race car driver, I don't think what makes a good race car driver is a fearless person. I think it's somebody that is comfortable being behind the wheel of something that's somewhat out of control. Jeff Gordon
I think starting in anime, like I did, gave me a good idea of how to approach games that come from Japan. Japanese developers can be very different from companies here in the western market. Laura Bailey
I've always believed that a good twist is one that, when it is presented to the audience, half of them say, 'I saw that coming.' And half of them are completely and totally shocked. Because if you don't have the half that saw it coming, then it wasn't fair: You never gave the audience a chance to guess it. Damon Lindelof
Somebody once said, you have to wait 20 years before you can tell if a movie's any good or not so that's probably true. Walter Hill

Nobody, man or woman, has ever wrecked a good marriage. Jimmy Dean
I'm the one who started redevelopment in South Los Angeles, not Jan Perry. I did it. I love Jan. She's a good person, and she did a wonderful job with what she did downtown, but in L.A., South L.A., I'm the one. Magic Johnson
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished. Og Mandino

I don't require movies to be about good people, and I don't reject screen violence. Roger Ebert
Hope is generally a wrong guide, though it is good company along the way. George Savile

So it's overwhelming, it's amazing and I believe that everything happens for a reason so I'm in a really good place right now. Pia Toscano
Ideals are not something I can control. It's not logic that convinces me of something, it's what my heart says. My heart has a way of involving me in things, which can only be good for the music. Michelle Shocked
After so many books and so many years of writing, I have a good idea of my strengths and weaknesses. I love the process of writing and, if I allowed myself, I would write far too much every day. One weakness which I've struggled to overcome is my tendency to having my characters ruminate for pages. Walter Dean Myers
A lot of people, sometimes they're so stuck on, 'I gotta get married, I gotta get married.' They forget that the really important thing is to have a healthy home, a healthy family, a healthy environment for your kids and to have everything going in a good, peaceful way. Camila Alves
The Constitution has a good share of deliberately open-ended guarantees, like rights to due process of law, equal protection of the law, and freedom from unreasonable searches. David Souter
Let me make this very clear: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, our digital exhaust is being sucked up by the government. It is being compiled on big server farms and it's being analyzed by different computer programs, looking for any hint that you and I are up to no good. Brad Thor
This generation of filmmakers is very good. They're seasoned, for some reason. Dennis Farina
I'm a huge Woody Allen fan. Good movie, bad movie, it doesn't matter - I just like his movies. Sean Penn
One of the things I really learned from my first term is the importance of focusing. In that sense, it is a deliberate effort. What I look at with each vote is that priority of whether it's good for the middle class or not. Dan Maffei
It's always good to be around people who get it and understand because it's a huge difference working on a black set. I can walk on a black set and not have to worry about my hair because they know. Raven Goodwin

I follow my father's philosphy; 'Do what is good, do what is right, and God will take care of the rest.' Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
I'm having fun opening up. Sort of struggling to get the audience into it. It's good. It makes you fight. Not fight like antagonistic. But fight for what you believe. Joan Jett
I'm all in favor of people - myself included - going into the same territory if there's something that can be done with it. But if somebody says, 'Make a sequel to 'Heathers',' I feel like, no, someone should make a good movie that's a dark, satirical comedy that has that sensibility. Michael Lehmann
Good actors are a dime a dozen, but I want actors that are gonna be part of my team and collaborative. Joe Pantoliano

I want to feel good, I want to feel proud, I want to feel that I give someone enough and that I get enough. Nastassja Kinski

I was an educated girl. I'd done very well in school. I had a good point average and graduated from USC as an English teacher. My dad didn't even finish high school. Marlo Thomas
