In the course of my life, I have often had to eat my words, and I must confess that I have always found it a wholesome diet.

I actually found contracting malaria in the Congo fascinating. Observing your body under attack from this microorganism and seeing how it responds is simultaneously fascinating and awful but maybe that’s just because I’m a former biology teacher.
There is no harm in being sometimes wrong – especially if one is promptly found out.
As I grew steadily more comfortable in the kitchen, I found that, much like gardening, most cooking manages to be agreeably absorbing without being too demanding intellectually. It leaves plenty of mental space for daydreaming and reflection.
One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
Every philosophical problem, when it is subjected to the necessary analysis and justification, is found either to be not really philosophical at all, or else to be, in the sense in which we are using the word, logical.
I had thought that Tokyo would be like New York City, but it wasn’t. I’d imagined that they’d be similar in their bustle and noise level, but, in fact, Tokyo is a very calm metropolis. The bright lights and hectic night-life images so often found in advertisements and Western media do not reflect every day Japan.
It is a profound and necessary truth that the deep things in science are not found because they are useful: they are found because it was possible to find them.
I was once in a very, very bad car accident. So my drawing arm is full of pins and platinum stuff. Occasionally it hurts. But I found that after the arm was put back together I could draw better than before. I have no idea why.
I found popularity through self-destruction, and that can be quite addictive.
An intellectual is a person who’s found one thing that’s more interesting than sex.
We owe it to each other – and to our children and grandchildren – to leave our planet in a better state than when we found it.
I know some Australian players who were at Dortmund when he was there and found out about him. Wagner is a leader and makes all the decisions, but of course the players have to perform and deliver what he wants.
He who seeks does not find, but he who does not seek will be found.
I’m such an avid magazine reader – music, art, beauty magazines – and I found that food and restaurants were pouring into everything I cared about. Whether it was the pop-up concept, or some mysterious mini-mall restaurant, I got swept up in the sexy romance of the food movement.
Until 1985, when my lab found the protein they are made of, aquaporins hadn’t yet been identified. There had been a controversy in biology for more than 100 years about how water moved through cells.
There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.
I found that with depression, one of the most important things you could realise is that you’re not alone.
I was proud to witness American Jewish organizations found the Save Darfur Coalition in June 2004 to mobilize a coordinated interfaith response to the ongoing humanitarian disaster.
I had to learn, really, how to rein in my energies and discipline myself. And I found it very very useful. I rebelled against it at first, but it’s a good thing to have.
I’ve found cinnamon to be very effective for lowering the glycemic response to meals. People have heard that before, but I didn’t realize how profound it could be until I did the actual testing with continuous glucose monitors. And I tested all different varieties and species of cinnamon from Ceylon to Saigon.
Humility was an important part of the way I grew up. And I found that to be less common when I moved to California. That’s not to say humble people don’t exist there, but ambition seems really important.
As the evening progressed, Scott said that he was looking forward to settling down, but that he hadn’t yet found the right person. The way he looked at me when he said that made me feel he might be wondering whether I was that person.
Much of the best humor is found in the frequently tragic reality of human experience.
I found there was only one way to look thin: hang out with fat people.
A friend is long sought, hardly found, and with difficulty kept.
The most important thing about global warming is this. Whether humans are responsible for the bulk of climate change is going to be left to the scientists, but it’s all of our responsibility to leave this planet in better shape for the future generations than we found it.
For my part, I consider that it will be found much better by all parties to leave the past to history, especially as I propose to write that history myself.
Technology is how we create wealth, how we cure diseases, how we’ll build an environment that’s sustainable and also gives people the capacity to pull more out of this world and still leave it better than when they found it.
Playing basketball is second nature to me; acting I found far more challenging.
There was a time when I was knocking on doors and concerned with being recognized in dominant culture. I’ve found a space where the terrain is different, where I’m embraced by people like me, and where I’m building new ways of doing things, as opposed to trying to insert myself in a place that might not be welcoming.
In the Middle East, it is clear that peace will never be reached without solving the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. A two-state solution must be found and enforced.
I feel like ‘Leftovers’ is dealing with subject matter that’s kind of taboo when you’re talking about religion and faith. They found a way to make it mysterious and intriguing without making people upset.
My aunt got me interested in journalism – she found an old typewriter, had it worked over, put it on the dining room table, gave me a stack of paper and said, ‘Play like you’re a writer.’
I’ve found a woman I can relate to. That’s something – and I don’t even feel sappy saying it – that, if anyone has that, don’t lose it, because it’s probably the only thing that you can ever really find any satisfaction from.
I found that the things I am afraid of most are things for which there are no obvious remedies. Like, what do you do with a fear of death? You either come to terms with it or you don’t, but there’s no solving it.
I’d come back after having served as ambassador to New Zealand and found that I had real concerns about the direction in which this country was headed.
My father was a disciplinarian. He had this cane and he would spare no one if found at fault. Unlike Babita, I was not physically strong and couldn’t cope with the training. So I got the most beatings.
Just because an individual in his 30s hasn’t found true love and, yes, there are opportunities to date but it also forces you to be more particular. In so many ways, you become more adamant about finding that right person and not allowing yourself to open up to just anybody.
At Bristol I found it quite difficult to continue trying to balance three things – teaching, research and public engagement, for which television was obviously the most prominent part.
A placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomised trial of boys with autism found that two to three servings of cruciferous vegetables a day improves social interaction, abnormal behaviour and verbal communication – within a matter of weeks.
Humour can always be found in a place where there’s fearlessness.
The inflated imitations of gold and silver, which after the rapture are thrown into the fire, all is exhausted and dissipated by the debt. All scrips and bonds are wiped out. At the fourth pillar dedicated to Saturn, split by earthquake and flood: vexing everyone, an urn of gold is found and then restored.
