When you walk into a field office, you have many opportunities. We’ll hand you a call sheet. You can make calls. You can knock on doors, and they’ll have these stacks there for you. They’ll say: ‘Harper, you’ve knocked on 50 doors. That’s great. Here’s how you compare to the rest of them.’ But it’s all very offline.
I guess I look strange a bit. Strange but confident. I’m not like a model or anything. I always compare this to wearing a hat. You can wear the strangest hat, but if you think it’s cool, then you’ll look cool.
I went to schools that had a significantly large Caucasian population and I feel very fortunate because I was able to compare that perspective with my family’s. It allowed me to create a wider world view on things.

God gave me some weird, beautiful scent that makes men and women go crazy. People compare it to Carvel. It is a whale of a smell.

I don’t compare myself with Freida Pinto. She has come a long way. She does only films in the West. I am open to do both – Indian films and films from the West.

My mom and my dad are still together, but so many of my friends who got married just a few years ago aren’t. Maybe it’s that we compare ourselves to our parents’ generation, thinking, ‘Who’s still together, and are they happy?’
Rodrigo Santoro
I don’t like to compare players or talk about having to carry the weight of the team.
Now I see other kids and their parents, and I compare them to my dad. Our dad was a really normal father when he was with us. We would get grounded if we did something bad. He would ground us. He wouldn’t call it grounding; he’d just say, ‘You’re on punishment.’ Sometimes we’d be on punishment a lot.
It doesn’t bother me that people compare me as a little sister or youngest daughter of my dad, but when my album does come out, I want to be thought of as Noah Cyrus.
And well historically it’s never been a good thing to compare yourself to biblical characters.
Writing is a question of finding a certain rhythm. I compare it to the rhythms of jazz. Much of the time life is a sort of rhythmic progression of three characters. If one tells oneself that life is like that, one feels it less arbitrary.
Francoise Sagan
I don’t compare myself to anyone else; I don’t make comments about anyone else because they do what feels right for them, and that’s okay by me.
Researchers can measure what kind of angles your legs take up during the day when they’re just trailing around behind you in weightless conditions, and what kind of impacts you feel during your exercise. They’re going to compare that with what we do on the ground.
John L. Phillips
Women compete, compare, undermine, and undercut one another – at least, that is the prevailing notion of how we interact.

I had a great time at Michigan State, but no four years will compare to Saginaw High.
I feel like Texas high schools, when you consider the melting pot that exists in Texas, do a fairly impressive job. No education process is perfect, but I think that, with plenty of room to improve, they do an admirable job when you compare them to the rest of the field.
Funnily enough, the most difficult style to do is the plain pump because it needs to look good on a variety of feet. I compare it to having a good bone structure. Make-up will make you look good, but it helps if you have a good skeleton to begin with.
There is so much pressure to be thin, and you constantly compare yourself to others. But confidence is something that comes with age and experience – it has to be earned along the way.
I don’t know who I can compare my style to because I listen to everybody from old to new. If I hear stuff that I like, I’ll definitely gravitate to it and spin it in my own way. I’m a mixture of a lot of people, honestly, but I’m myself.
My best advice is to celebrate your own unique features and never put them down. There is beauty in individuality, and it’s so important to appreciate everything your body allows you to do. It’s OK to have a down day – we all do from time to time – but it’s not OK to compare yourself to others.
It is foolish to compare Shahid and Ishaan. Shahid has made it on his own. So will Ishaan. He did not get a Majid Majidi film because he is Shahid Kapoor’s brother.

Craig Sheffer

Nothing I do will ever compare with ‘Breaking Bad.’
To compare writing an article for ‘Sports Illustrated‘ to doing a piece for ‘Real Sports’, the article, it was all me. You know, I’m out there by myself with my pad and pencil. ‘Real Sports,’ I’ve got a producer, an assistant producer, and cameramen. It’s an individual game versus a team game.

Nick Petrie
I feel like the Roses were a great group, but I never wanted to try to do it again. I knew I couldn’t get a band that would compare to the Roses, that would have an impact like the Roses.
Violent predators are not like the rest of us. They kill for fun, for sport, for the sake of it. To compare them to animals is an insult to animals. To expect that we can rehabilitate them assumes a will to change.

I reckon I would be able compare anything to anything else if you gave me enough time.

I don’t compare ’em, I just catch ’em.
Second, when comparing private school and public school test scores, it’s like apples and oranges. Public schools have to take everyone, but private schools can be selective. It’s not accurate or fair to compare the job they do.
Dennis Moore
I’m the one who often makes the ‘Murder, She Wrote’ reference, and ABC hates that, they don’t want me to do that. And I say that having never actually watched ‘Murder, She Wrote’.

I sometimes compare making a film to cooking. Some dishes need to be stewed, while others need to be fried.
I don’t think we should compare club teams with international teams because they are different cups of tea.

It’s understandably obvious, when I was making ‘Company,’ of the underworld genre, people would compare it to ‘Satya.’
You can’t compare yourself to anyone else. I try and use this advice daily. I didn’t actually fully believe that until I was maybe 21 or 22.

I’m getting TV coverage just about everywhere as they compare the ‘Bob Sapp phenomenon’ to the biggest thing from Pokemon to Godzilla.
A screaming comes across the sky. It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

Chris Cannon
We compare everything with what is being done in the West. Even the film reviews are written like that. It is sad because we are trying to belittle ourselves.

Andy Gibb
Mohan Lal is my favorite actor, so if I am saying that Salman has performed better, you can believe how much he has done. Salman is better looking, so that’s his plus point.

We all body shame and compare bodies, and that needs to go out of the window.
‘Reinventing the Bazaar,’ by John McMillan, is a great and fun introduction to the wild variety and importance of markets throughout history and around the world.

I don’t listen to what people say about me and I don’t read what they write about me. People can compare me to anyone they want to, but I’m not going to worry about it.

Gagan Narang

Daniel Naroditsky
If you look at where the growth is happeningtablet growth compared to the traditional PC growth – you just can’t compare them.
I honestly think if I had been a solo artist, it wouldn’t have been as bad. Because I was being compared to three other girls, it made people have more of an opinion. If I had been on my own, there would be no one to compare to.

When you’re acting on camera, you don’t really think of your voice. You think of the whole instrument – your body, your look, and whatever you have to do. But when you’re doing the voiceover, you’re thinking only of your voice. You really can’t compare the two different mediums.
If you look at human society, it is very easy, of course, to compare our warfare and territoriality with the chimpanzee. But that’s only one side of what we do. We also trade, we intermarry, we allow each other to travel through our territory. There’s an enormous amount of cooperation.
There’s no drug in the world that can compare with playing music.
It would not be honest if I did a review, because I’ve worked with Leo Messi, whom I consider the best player I’ve seen. I cannot comment or compare with Cristiano Ronaldo because I have not worked with him. That is not to say that I do not have as much respect for Cristiano as a footballer.
