I don’t have an editor on Twitter. I have an editor in the paper, and so I tend to be less precise in 140 characters and sometimes I leave people confused as to my meaning. And then I make the mistake of engaging and trying to explain it, which just leads you down a rabbit hole.
Maggie Haberman
I’d managed to bite a very large hole in the side of my tongue before they could pry my teeth apart. By all evidence, and there’s no denying it, that thing I had on the set was a fit.
There seems to be this sense among even well-meaning Americans that Africa is this black hole of murder and mutilation that can never be fixed, no matter what aid is brought in.
I’m interested in finding whether or not there is a really massive, what we like to call ‘super massive’ black hole at the center of our galaxy. And the reason this is interesting is that it gives us an opportunity to prove whether or not these exotic objects really exist.
You think you’re in control, and you’re trying to get that square peg in that round hole. You’re frustrated, and you realize that you’re not in control of everything. You need to just step back and let God.
Paying to teach in the trenches was like putting my face through a cutout hole at a carnival while a quarterback threw pies at me. At least with a carnival, I’d see it coming.
Erin Gruwell

In the Valley, what’s happened is you have entrepreneurs that just want to fill a hole in the market and have a rich exit.
Danny Rimer
Look at the putt from behind the hole. Everyday players almost never do this. They should! Your eyes will take in more information about the slope. Sometimes you’ll find that your initial read was incorrect.
I think… all of the best public cryptographers in the world would agree that you can’t really build back doors in crypto. That it’s like drilling a hole in the windshield.
Fortunately, most things around the supermassive black hole are just going to go around it. They’re going to orbit it. They don’t actually get sucked in.
In ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four,’ protagonist Winston Smith works at a propaganda department for the state called the ‘Ministry of Truth,’ where inconvenient news can be discarded down a ‘memory hole.’ Orwell was fixated on the idea that under certain governments, the past can be altered or documents rewritten.
I grew up not seeing my father, and it is a hole in my heart that will never heal.
Lysette Anthony
Stargate‘ has always had this empty hole. When we made the first one, we always intended on doing part two and three, and we were prevented for years. And our hope is that we can get another chance at ‘Stargate’ and tell the entire story we wanted to tell.
We all knew this. We all knew that it would take more time than any of us want to dig ourselves out of this hole created by this economic crisis.
I was going out dancing in clubs around New York, and that helped create ‘Supermassive Black Hole.’ Franz Ferdinand would have done it very well with that dance-type beat going on mixed with alternative guitar, and I’ve always wanted to find that.
Remember the referendum on the Charlottetown constitutional accord? The more Canada‘s political and business elites threatened Canadians that the country would disappear into a black hole if the accord weren’t passed, the more Canadians opposed it.
Preston Manning
I think people ultimately reveal themselves to everybody. I think that’s the case with Sarah Palin‘s conduct, particularly after the Tucson shooting, I think she’s sort of digging herself into a hole. I hope – I really hope.
I don’t want to spend my life not having good food going into my pie hole. That hole was made for pies.
When I got into all the grunge stuff, I really liked Hole. I actually saw them in concert when I was a sophomore in high school. It was kind of rare to see a successful female rocker get down and dirty with the guys. And Courtney Love did. It was fun to be a fan of something different.
I hit balls hard on the ground, and sometimes they are double plays. Other times, you hit it hard, and it’s right through a hole.
In the past, I put too much pressure on myself. I went out there and I tried so hard to get the ball in the hole, I tried so hard to hit the perfect shots.
Patrick Reed
When you’re in a hole, stop digging.
Denis Healey
Indiana Jones‘ wasn’t physically tough, but they are the only two films I’ve ever been ill on. On ‘The Last Crusade,’ I got sciatica. That’s when the sciatic nerve, which goes through the funny hole in your pelvis down your leg, swells and rubs against the nerves.
I’m going to do whatever interests me. Look, writing ‘Rabbit Hole’ came out of an interest in diversifying my portfolio, frankly.
David Lindsay-Abaire
A ball had passed between my body and the right arm which supported him, cutting through the sleeve and passing through his chest from shoulder to shoulder. There was no more to be done for him and I left him to his rest. I have never mended that hole in my sleeve.
Clara Barton
It is true I’d rather get a hole in one than win an Academy Award.
The arms race is worse than it ever was, the dumping of creation down a military rat hole is worse than it ever was, the wars across the earth are worse than they ever were.
Daniel Berrigan
If you’re a big Nirvana fan, a big Hole fan, then I understand why you would want to get to know me, but I’m not my parents.
I play fairly aggressively week to week and fire at a lot of pins. So I might miss more greens than other pros, but I’m still only a few yards from the hole when I do. That being said, when I really need to hit a green in regulation, I’m confident in my swing.
I think that hope, that ability to envision, to imagine a better way, and then to apply yourself to it, is the way to climb out of a hole, is the way to build a better life, is the way to build a better community and a better country.

I’m the sort of person that starts digging a hole and doesn’t stop until it’s finished.
Christopher Paolini

There has been a black hole in the bar business in Las Vegas, particularly on the Strip in tourist areas.
The recreational golfer who gives it careful thought will conclude that the favorite golf hole in his life played downhill, gradually or severely, and normally was downwind as well.

I am real, real picky with what I decided to do. I want to make sure it’s new and at the same time that it’s in the same color of what I have played before. Not to pigeon hole myself but I don’t like to do fluff.
Ryan Hurst
I don’t know if you saw, in the first ‘Celebrity Big Brother,’ Jack Dee was in it, and tried to escape by digging a hole with a spoon. That just made me think: that approach would be perfect on ‘Taskmaster’ – trying to achieve something impossible with something mundane.
I didn’t go into ‘Rabbit Hole’ wanting to write about class. I think because of who I am it somehow found its way into it.
David Lindsay-Abaire
You say something, things you would rather forget, and then they are out there. It makes me anxious and I don’t know why people are interested in me anyway. If I had my way, I would rather exist in a little hole and not speak to anyone.
I was very close to my mother, and her death, which left a gaping hole in my life, has been very difficult for me and my father in a lot of ways.
Vanessa Kerry

A caveman took a shell, and maybe it had a hole in it, or maybe he put a hole in it, and he put it on a piece of a tail of a donkey or a dinosaur or something and gave it to the cavewoman. She put it around her neck – the first jewel.
Kenneth Jay Lane
I have to chase down the most scientifically efficient way to get the golf ball in the hole.
We would look up at the night sky together, and although Stephen wasn’t actually very good at detecting constellations, he would tell me about the expanding universe and the possibility of it contracting again and describe a star collapsing in on itself to form a black hole in a way that was quite easy to understand.
Baseball, it is said, is only a game. True. And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona. Not all holes, or games, are created equal.
I’m not someone so much interested in exploring a slice of life unless that is down the corridor, around the corner, up the alley, and down the rabbit hole. That, I like.
I used to think information was destroyed in black hole. This was my biggest blunder, or at least my biggest blunder in science.
You miss the routine. That’s the biggest thing. That’s probably the biggest thing that put me into a hole, that you don’t have a routine, you don’t get up and work out and then eat and then go to the rink and practice an all those things in a set schedule.
I don’t know, I just want to be happy. I could be in a hole somewhere. Or I could completely lose it and be some hippy living in the woods with my dad.
When a car’s ahead of you, as long as you can see it, you get a tow, just like the draft in NASCAR. Even if it’s a long ways down the track, it punches a hole in the air that has to help. When you’re running alone, you can feel the difference, and it shows on the clock, too.
After having supplied myself with provisions from Mr. Travis’s, I scratched a hole under a pile of fence rails in a field, where I concealed myself for six weeks, never leaving my hiding place but for a few minutes in the dead of night to get water, which was very near.
Nat Turner
So I think that in the beginning of your career you’re just looking to work. Luckily for me, my first movie was ‘Rabbit Hole’ and I got to work with incredible people, a Pulitzer prize winning writer, John Cameron Mitchell, and all the actors involved. So it’s tough, man, because you want to have credibility.
I used to say, ‘There is a God-shaped hole in me.’ For a long time I stressed the absence, the hole. Now I find it is the shape which has become more important.
I would try to write ‘realistic‘ fiction, and someone would fly, or there would be a black hole full of demons or a girl who attracted frogs.
Nnedi Okorafor
I look at the game like, ‘How can I impact it not just standing there?’ Just try to be active offensively setting screens, doing stuff like that, but I’m also trying to be active driving the ball to the hole, finishing, one-dribble pull-ups and stuff like that. Just playing ball and not being robotic. Just evolving.
Here’s my definition of a great beach read – a fabulous story that sucks me in like a black hole and when it’s over, it jettisons my bones across the galaxy with a hair on fire mission to convince everyone I know that they must read that book or they will die.
Dorothea Benton Frank
I like to do things that I want to see myself. With ‘Defending Your Life,’ I wanted to see some aspect of death other than angels and the thing that ‘Ghost‘ was about, because that didn’t make any sense to me. So that’s the reason: it fills a hole.
When I played, you had a lot of enforcers. You would go to the hole, get knocked down, and the referee would look at you and say, ‘Get stronger, get up, and keep playing.’
The artist one day falls through a hole in the brambles, and from that moment he is following the dark rapids of an underground river which may sometimes flow so near to the surface that the laughing picnic parties are heard above.

The mind of a 19-year-old is very different from the mind of a 26-year-old. You grow. You get into better relationships. You experience more, meet more people, better people. But when you’re in a dark hole at an earlier point in your life – you write about the mindset you’re in at that moment.
If I had been asked to write 1,200 words for a newspaper tomorrow, on any subject, I would just do it rather than leave a white hole in the page. And I think it’s a very healthy attitude to take to writing anything.
One game that I’ve been playing a lot is ‘Super Stick Golf.’ It’s really simple, and it’s similar in a sense to ‘Angry Birds‘ because you have to hit the right angle and the right trajectory to complete each hole. That one really hooked me.
I confess that Roy was a little bit dictatorial in his editing and he ruined quite a number of my pictures, which he stopped doing later. He used to punch a hole through a negative. Some of them were incredibly valuable. He didn’t understand at the time.
To play as an anchor man you have to be extremely disciplined and a lot of the time you’re attracted to the ball but can’t go there because if you don’t get there or it breaks down there is a hole.

Maximilian Schell
We all have experiences and memories from miniature golf. I had my first kiss at hole nine at Golfland.
I make 18 three-footers after every round. It’s just something that helps me focus on routine, and helps me hear the ball go in the hole. It’s something I do every day.
All I can do is do my best work, try to create the best kind of moment to moment reality that I can do. That’s what I do. I’m an actor. And all the rest of it is like baseball. You hit the ball. Sometimes it goes in the hole. Sometimes it goes to the player.
