If you don’t have the confidence in baking, commit to making the recipe three times. The first two, do it exactly the way I’ve told you to make it. Twice. The first time you’ll screw it up. The second time it will come out pretty good, and then the third time, make your adjustments.
Yes, I’ve had some pretty good luck finding wonderful talent.
Gene Krupa
I didn’t smoke. I didn’t smoke then, and I don’t smoke now. We worked every day – that keeps you in pretty good shape. We could go for a long time in one take. You had to be in good shape with Gene Kelly.
Donald O’Connor
I’ve definitely pitched some viral ideas and do have a pretty good understanding of the Web.
Even now, when I’m asked how I’m doing, I like to reply, ‘Pretty good. I’ve got all my fingers and both eyes.
I would have to say honestly I was very pleased to be in a film whether it was good or bad with De Niro, Norton and Brando even if I don’t have any scenes with them, I thought it was pretty good company to keep.

Mornin’ ladies, my goodness don’t you look happy. Must be cuttin’ somebody up pretty good.
Andy Griffith
The fact is that when it comes to judgment as to what should be secret and what should not be secret, Julian Assange’s judgment has been pretty good so far.
Daniel Ellsberg
If I’m working as an engineer for another band, the responsibility for brilliance pretty much rests on their shoulders. I think I’m pretty good, but I’m not good enough to turn a trout into a sausage, or the other way around.
Since 1981, I’ve spent every Thanksgiving Day broadcasting a game, and it is one of my favorite days. You can say, ‘Woe is me, I never get to be part of the tradition,’ or you can say, ‘Heck, we’ve got our own tradition, and it’s pretty good.’
I can be a binger when it comes to information, but most of the time, I’m pretty good, and I try to focus on my own life and personal communication.
The Social Security trust fund is in pretty good shape today and we should not embark upon risky, dangerous schemes which will, in fact, undermine Social Security, such as privatization.
My life is okay, my life is pretty good.
I’m a good guy, and I’m a pretty good drummer, by the way.
Here’s the thing, I’ve been cooking more and more and I’m pretty good; the problem is I can only go out to restaurants that cook better than I do, therefore, it’s expensive.
School was pretty good about letting me take up music and that’s where I had my first musical ideas and first said, ‘Yeah, I’m going to be a musician.’ I just had to do a quick stop gap in the army first.
Someday, I think I’ll make a pretty good dad.
I think I could totally be a gangster, but I could never be the kind of gangster that carries things out myself. I would have to be the kingpin that has my minions go and do the dirty bidding. I think I’d be pretty good at giving orders.
Elena Satine
I’m usually pretty good about meeting people. I try to remember they are human, too!
I had some pretty good teachers. I learned how to play the game the right way.
Sitting at the table during Color Purple and looking up and suddenly realizing I was acting in front of Steven Spielberg, was pretty cool. It was pretty good.
And George Brett. I think most people know that George and I have become pretty good friends over the years.
Robin Yount
Pretty good, you know it’s nice when you get people coming up to you saying ‘Can I have a photo or an autograph‘; it’s a compliment, I think.
I was following my muse and I was very fortunate in having good people around me and it turned out to be a pretty good recording in my opinion.
If I’m alone, I tend to cook for myself. I do a pretty good job of preparing healthful foods. My go-to is everything in a bowl like quinoa, avocado. Later in the day, scrambled eggs. I’m not a gourmet chef. I cook in bulk very well.
I thought I was a pretty good physical specimen. But there was a teenager from Brooklyn, who basically wiped the floor with me on the street. He gave me a punch that I didn’t even feel. All I knew I was looking up at the sky. I tried to fight him, and I got a number of injuries after that.
Bernhard Goetz
Getting to play superheros is a pretty good job.
A comedy scene can’t really have two weirdoes in it. It doesn’t make any sense that way, so you need someone to ground it and call out what’s unusual about this person and this scene. Early on, I got pretty good at doing that, and I felt pretty comfortable doing that.
Cagey trial lawyers have figured out there’s a pretty good likelihood their case – no matter what its merit – will literally get its day in court because of favorable judges.
Dennis Hastert
I have pretty good, strong support in Tulsa.
Joe Exotic
I was a good father. I was a nice guy, pretty good guitar player, and funny as hell.
Well, well, Henry James is pretty good, though he is of the nineteenth century, and that glaringly.
If you haven’t read ‘In The Morning I’ll Be Gone’, I reckon it’s a pretty good place to start if you’re new to me and my books.
I started in the mailroom, literally, as an intern… in 1974. The legislator I was working for at the time said, ‘I want you to get your law degree and come back here and get elected and be the first woman governor.’ I kind of took that guy seriously – I thought that sounded like a pretty good idea.
Look, when I look back, from 20 onwards, I was actually having a pretty good time, I have to say.
I remember I made $22 a week doing dinner theater in Norfolk, Virginia. Back then, in the ’70s, that was pretty good for a teenager, for a part-time job.
It’s just a continuous process, trying to work through it, trying find that comfort zone and go from there. That’s kind of where I’m at. I feel pretty good about where I’m at.
I have a pretty good grip on who I am.
I’ve been pretty good at reading people. If you rockin’ with me cause you’re just a solid individual, then we’re rockin’. But if you got a motive or something, I am going to probably see right through that.
I like ‘Man v. Food,’ ‘Diners Drive-ins and Dives.’ ‘Restaurant Impossible’ is pretty good, too.
I don’t mind hitting the ball bad, but when I feel like I’ve hit the ball pretty good for four days and shoot an 81, it’s not golf.
I thought I was a pretty good writer, but I didn’t have anything to write about. I wanted to go out in the world, have some adventures and then write about them.
I consider myself a pretty good extemporaneous speaker. Even though I don’t like speaking in front of people, I don’t think I’m bad at it.
Anna D. Shapiro
I had a very hard time accepting myself as a character actress because I wanted to be glamorous and a leading lady like everybody else. I looked in the mirror and thought I looked pretty good, but casting didn’t ever see me that way.
Beth Grant
In the ’80 Olympics… people expected me to win. I was good enough to win, and I made a mistake and ended up second, which is pretty good, too.
Obviously you can make a pretty good living these days as a crew member or a crew chief or as a driver. But the technology is expensive.
Look, to be honest, when certain movies like ‘Ninja Assassin‘ came out, that had a sexy, sexy Asian man with a six-pack, that made some people think, ‘Maybe I should go out there and date an Asian dude.’ And that did pretty good for us in a way of representation.
My wife is great at giving input for my projects. She’s good at naming places, she has pretty good taste in music, and as a model, of course, she’s excellent when it comes to lighting.
I was spawned by some pretty good people in this business – Mr. Astaire, Mr. Tracy. They stopped and took their time to talk to people.
Robert Wagner
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.
I am sure it does not hurt that Mitt Romney is my dad. I’m sure it’s opened a lot of doors for me. But I think I’ve been pretty effective once I’ve gotten through the door at doing a pretty good job.
Tagg Romney
I always assume I look better than I actually do. I’ll feel pretty good about myself when I leave the house, then I’ll see a picture and think, ‘Crap, I had no idea that’s what I was looking like.’
The world doesn’t need any more pretty good songs.
You acquire certain tastes. And if your taste happens to coincide with the majority of people, then you’re in pretty good shape. But you’re not always right. There were times when I stubbed my toe, and some will end up being on my tombstone – like ‘Supertrain.’
Fred Silverman
I play guitar… I like to say that I’m pretty good, but it takes someone else to tell you that you’re really good.
Billy Unger
I guess ‘The Player’ was a pretty good L.A. movie. And ‘Chinatown.’ Was there ever a better L.A. movie about a certain period in L.A.? That was terrific.
I have never needed operations, I have had niggles the same as any other golfer after putting his body through 17 years of travel and a heavy playing schedule. I think I’m actually in pretty good shape considering the amount of hours spent hitting balls and sitting on an aeroplane.
Believe it or not, I’m pretty good at just doing nothing.
I’ve got pretty good knowledge about pass rushing. But I know I have a lot to work on.
I’m pretty good at video games, but I’m the champ when it comes to pinball, and that’s just because it’s old-fashion like I am. I can’t get enough of pinball.
I feel tired, but in general, I do love being pregnant and always feel pretty good. I’m lucky. I always hear, like, horror stories.
Chris is the engineer down at the studio where we do these things. And he’s just such an integral part and he has such a marvelous ear. Also it turns out, we didn’t know, but he’s a pretty good fiddle player.
Guy Clark
I get kind of bored on the treadmill, but I do it. And I do a little bit of weight training. I’m really into the BOSU ball. You have to balance on it, and I do weights and squats on it. I’m pretty good at it, I feel sort of like a Karate Kid.
My parents did not have a perfect marriage. It was pretty good, but it was not perfect. My marriage is not perfect. My wife is, but I happen to be imperfect. However, that does not discount the fact that the definition of marriage must be defended and protected.
In ’73 I photographed the cannibals in New Guinea. They treated me OK but they didn’t make you feel relaxed… I managed to escape unscathed though, I’m pretty good at that.
I began thinking there should be an American phrase book, ’cause I’ve got an Italian phrase book, and an Arabic one… now a British one. I think it’d be pretty good to have an American phrase book.

I’ve run my mouth pretty good about my beliefs.
Thankfully, God blessed me with some legs that move pretty good, and we also get to wear pads, so I should be alright.
Cancer is really a DNA disease… We have these certain genes that prevent our cells from growing out of control at the expense of the body. And it’s a pretty good, robust system. But if a couple of these genes fail, then that’s when cancer starts, and cells start growing out of control.
I’m pretty good at going incognito.
I majored in Chinese Studies. I’m probably the only director of chicken Indian zombie movies who can speak pretty good Mandarin.
Lloyd Kaufman
I’ve made three musical movies which is pretty good considering that not many are made but I was lucky in other ways. I came along when independent movies were starting to boom.
I’ve put in 63 years now in the big leagues as a player, coach, manager. And now just being around these young guys, it keeps you going pretty good.
Red Schoendienst
I’ve been pretty good at negotiating.
I’m OK with having a really good football player with a chip on his shoulder because he’s going to come to prove to not only the people that didn’t draft him, but himself, that I’m a pretty good football player.
I know more about UFC than the wrestling circuit. I think everybody’s a pretty good guy in the UFC.
When my father and I were off in the woods or off fishing, we were communicating all the time. We didn’t catch many fish and my father was a pretty good fisherman but he just like to take one or two fish and then we would make camp and broil those fish and eat them.
In the sago palms, you’ll often find sago beetles which are about the size of your little finger. The Karowai put those on the fire until they’re crispy and eat them. They taste a little bit like creamy snails. But compared to sago, the sago beetle is really pretty good.
People with anxiety disorders such as OCD know that nothing can be more paralyzing than having too many options. Go to a store to buy a sweater, find four that you like and the odds are pretty good you’ll stare and stare… and buy nothing at all.
I’m a pretty good procrastinator.
I always wanted to be an actress. I think that is something that I could be pretty good at.
I entertain people. I think that’s pretty good. That’s what I contribute to society. I’m proud of what I do.
I will only hire someone to work directly for me if I would work for that person. It’s a pretty good test.
I have a big scar in my thigh from a dog bite by my German shepherd. His name was Ripper. He was trying to get in a fight with another dog, and I tried to break it up, and he got me pretty good.
To do that I try and keep myself in pretty good shape physically and I try to lead my life in such a way that I’ll be able to be as strong at the end of the movie as I am in the beginning.
Photo management software is terrible. Mylio is pretty good – but disrupts the ‘natural’ flow of things: i.e. Apple Photos.
My grandfather had been a newspaper reporter, as was my uncle. They were pretty good writers and so I thought maybe somewhere down the line I would do some writing.
Gene Hackman
I really want to do a film in another language. My dad’s from Germany, so it’d be really cool to do a film in German. I’m not quite fluent, but I can get there. And my accent‘s pretty good. I wouldn’t feel too out of my element.
From the strength involved, the jumping, to body positioning and control, there are similarities. Playing basketball at a pretty good high school level, in a state where there were strong programs, definitely helped make me a better tight end.
My mission is to make the world happy and cute and to love everyone. I think I’m doing a pretty good job.
If you do enough rap shows, you get a pretty good sense of an audience. You start to develop this sense of what a feeling of a room or a group is.
I was kind of shy as a kid. I was a pretty good student. I was a wallflower, or nerd, if you will.
My mum gave me pretty good genes in that department. She had gorgeous skin. That good English complexion. She never seemed to have a blemish that I knew of.
I try to limit my time with Michael Davies to as little as possible per week, and he is pretty good with that, since he has a bazillion things to do. When I do see him, I try not to talk about dental work or anything like that because I know the Brits get very sensitive.
In the Dead Sea Scrolls, there are many Aramaic texts from the time of Jesus, so one can get a pretty good idea of what the language of Jesus looked liked.
You ask yourself, ‘What do you want your legacy to be?’ I’m content at this point to say, ‘Those who follow me.’ Romeo Crennel, Bill Belichick, Sean Payton, to name a few. I think I’ve got a pretty good group, so far.
If you check your ego at the door when it comes to comedy, you’ve got a pretty good shot at making a great movie that you can commit yourself to, you can jump off the proverbial cliff with, and have a great time, and the audiences respond to that.
When I was younger, I always knew I was a pretty good player, but it was impossible to foresee how far I’d go. I had a left foot and vision like no one else, but I wasn’t the quickest and my right foot wasn’t so great, so there were things I needed to work on.
Rafael van der Vaart
I’m pretty good with talking to girls if I have an introduction, but I’m the worst at trying to go pick up a girl. I’m really bad at breaking the ice. It’s awkward!
I’m playing pretty good now, but my ranking doesn’t say that. I’m number two.
Vijay Singh
In my own life, I’m pretty good at choosing between good and bad. It’s the choices between good and good I find the most difficult to make.
Ally Condie
‘Pyrapshere’ began as a sketch for a variety show I produced called ‘A Pretty Good Show.’ My partner, Andersen Gabrych, and I expanded it into a full-fledged faux-religion, including a list of 21 tenets, sacred symbols, testimonials, and even a clothing line. Many people believed it was a real thing and wanted to join.
Maggie Rowe
It is possible to have a pretty good life and career being a leech and a parasite in the media world, gadding about from TV studio to TV studio, writing inconsequential pieces and having a good time. But in the end you have a great sense of personal dissatisfaction.
When I do watch shows, or projects that I’ve been a part of, I’m pretty good at watching them objectively. And that’s mostly because I want to see how it came out overall, what the overall story was and how it came together visually, what my mates were doing.
Usually, my husband is a pretty good rock, a pretty good sounding board… He definitely brings a center of gravity into my life.
During most of my freelancing, I made what I would have made in charge of the cafeteria at a pretty good junior-high school.
I do a pretty good job at casting actually.
When I was out there on the floor, I think I did pretty good for myself… I’ve never really had enough time to play and actually improve.
If we are running sprints, I want to beat everybody by 10 yards. If we are playing checkers, I want to win: I’m pretty good at checkers, and I’m trying to get on chess.
‘The Duellists’ won Cannes, but Paramount didn’t know how to release a film about two guys in bizarre breeches, waving swords around. I actually think it’s a pretty good Western.
Yeah, my son likes a lot of guitar bands. He gave me something the other day which was really good. He’ll burn a CD for me full of things that he has, so he’s a pretty good call if I want to check some of that stuff out… The other two aren’t quite into that yet.
I tried hard not to think about the scope or scale of making a record that would be heard by millions and millions of people. I did a pretty good job of tuning that out.
I’m doing pretty good on my own, when I can control my tongue.
Pimp C
I like the Open Window Fresh WetJet scent; it smells pretty good as you are using it. I like fresh and clean smells, so it makes sense that I would also be partnered with Swiffer because that is what they are all about: making your house all fresh and clean.
Chicago is a pretty good town.
A whole bunch of agents and editors looked at my stories, and they all said, in effect, ‘You’re a pretty good writer and you should probably get these published; when you grow up and write a novel, get in touch.’
Bob Shacochis
In New Orleans, where I’m from, the average household income, with two working parents, two kids, a dog and a little fence is $16,000 a year, so $15,000 for a movie sounds pretty good.
I’m pretty good at thinking about everything – all of my consequences – before I make a decision, and I think about everything that’s going to happen because of that decision. I’m a Libra, and I’m very strategic.
Until we got married, Radha didn’t utter a word of English and now she won’t speak Hindi. Her Hindi’s pretty good actually – she learnt it while watching Hindi movies.
I get mad at my mom. I really wish she’d put me into hockey. I’m not gifted with height, but look at Martin St-Louis. He’s unbelievable. He’s small, but he’s so fast, so skilful. I think I could have been pretty good.
As a kid, I was a pretty good little sprinter.
Mary Lou Retton
I don’t worry about a zombie apocalypse. Mainly because it’s unlikely, but also because I think I’d be pretty good in that type of emergency.
I feel like I’ve always been a pretty good ballhandler. It’s kind of like second nature to me.
I do genuinely believe that young people who play sport at a competitive level, sensibly controlled, sensibly organised, that has to be a good thing. It will teach them to win, it will teach them to lose with dignity and magnanimity – all the things you want. It’s a pretty good metaphor for life.
Don’t get bored with little things – little completions here and there. They are all valuable, because I know that’s a trap to fall into. You start feeling pretty good, and you think ‘Oh, I want to try and throw this, or throw that.’ And you’ve got to reel yourself in and hone in on the details.
I’m much softer than people think. I don’t present to the world an emotional face. I’m pretty good at self-control, but I am easily moved.
I used to arm wrestle my roommate in college. Based on that, I’m in pretty good shape.
I actually think the chances that we’ll find E.T. are pretty good.
Walla Walla is where I make wine, with Eric Dunham. He and I partnered up on a small project for me. We make pretty good cabernet and syrah.
I’ve had the pretty good fortune of working with some decent guys and gals.
We felt like when we went into last year we had a pretty good chance to win the championship from the previous year with the fall we put together. We’ve got the same everything now, so I think we can come back and be as strong this year.
Sterling Marlin
I will tell you, I’m a lousy cook, but I think I’m a pretty good judge of a good meal.
I’d say my heart is more in independents, but sometimes these major films come along that are pretty good, you know?
I’ve been concussed I don’t know how many times, yeah it’s taken a pretty good toll on the body.
You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.
I think Desperate Housewives is a pretty good show, I watch it, I like it and I don’t love reality tv that much. I do watch some, I’ve got three daughters so we’ll watch the good stuff, the fun stuff.
David Lynch was very good, very patient with us, and the reaction in the United States seems pretty good.
Richard Farnsworth
I always thought I could be pretty good, and it turns out fighting has made me happy.
New York basketball’s been pretty good over the years.
My relationship with my dad will always be strained, but that just goes to show, I guess, that I’m doin’ a pretty good job of bein’ myself, and bein’ a rebel.
If you are a black person growing up in America, chances are pretty good that you have experienced the police pulling you over in front of your mother‘s house because you ‘had a headlight out.’
I’m a pretty good winner. I’m a terrible loser. And I rub it in pretty good when I win.
I actually had a dream that one of my friends became president, and I was trying to help out with the campaign. It was pretty good.
Chris Massoglia
I’m quite bullish. We’re coming up on year 15 of a flat stock market. Historically that’s a pretty good sign. So I’m not a hedge-fund manager but if I was I think I’d be feeling pretty good.
I was a pretty good coach and working with marketing was like coaching.
Bernard Ebbers
I’ve done a pretty good job of hitting 18-34-year-old males, and not such a good job of reaching kids. Disney has done a great job of reaching kids, but maybe not the 18-34-year-olds. I figure I can learn a lot from Disney, and maybe, I don’t know, they can learn a lot from me.
Look, all administrations, all governments lie, all officials lie and nothing they say is to be believed. That’s a pretty good rule.
Daniel Ellsberg
Big things, a real crisis, I think I’m pretty good, but this little thing will just wallop me. I think I’m managing depression better now: when the mood comes, I just try and sit it out.
I want to be a coach one day. This is important to me. I think I have a pretty good foundation of football schemes and X’s and O’s.
So I’ve been fortunate to have a bunch of teammates – pretty much all the teammates I’ve had have been pretty good guys.
Philip Rivers, I think he’s pretty good.
Hillary Clinton is not strongly identified with reforming the industrial food system. The Clintons were involved with Walmart and Tyson in Arkansas. Though as a senator, Hillary was pretty good at reaching out to the small farmers in Upstate New York.
You couldn’t really like a bad guitar in 1960 ’cause everybody was pretty good.
For a lot of people, life’s been pretty good. There hasn’t been true terror right in your face.
My wife cooks. I can’t cook. I can remix leftovers pretty good, though.
I was a huge fan of this band called Sparks. It was a pretty good inauguration to music, since their music is quite complex.
My average against hitters is pretty good.
Stockton is a great fight town because if you drive long enough on some of these roads, you’ll probably see a pretty good street fight.
If I can make myself laugh about something that I should be crying about, that’s pretty good.
Living in my parents’ house is pretty sweet. It’s not like they’re rich or anything, but they’re pretty nice to me, so it was pretty good living there, too, and all I did was jujitsu. I was just like a stallion, just living on my parents’ couch. It wasn’t terrible.
I grew up speaking Spanish and English. My mother can speak Spanish, English, French and Italian, and she’s pretty good at faking Portuguese. I wish that I spoke more languages than I do.
Sebastian Arcelus
I’m blessed with a pretty good voice. So just sitting back there banging on the tubs wasn’t enough.
Don Henley
You realize that the first Bryan Ferry album was pretty good although at the time it seemed a bit cheesy.
I’m about a 160, 170 bowler so I feel like I’m pretty good – I’m average, but I don’t stink, you know?

I haven’t worn one for a long time, but I look pretty good in a suit.
The truth of the matter is that Dusty Rhodes helped put more money in my pocket than anybody I’ve ever wrestled. In his time he was the most charismatic and talented performer in the business, and I know he doesn’t look like it, but he was a pretty good athlete too.
I just feel like a completely different person confidence-wise, just being able to walk around feeling like an actual athlete that’s in pretty good shape.
I think that one of the greatest perspectives that I have, from being a buyer for my whole career until I became a producer, is that I have a pretty good understanding of the buyer’s mentality.
I’ve been in three offenses in the NFL. I think I’m pretty good now.
It hurts me not to be able to communicate like I used to. I used to be pretty good at coming back, you know, quick one-liners.
You kind of look at the timeline of what has happened to me and with having a pretty good rookie year and the second year getting the injury and Kurt Warner played himself into the Hall of Fame in the last 3 years. There’s not a lot I can do about that. I battled with a Hall of Famer two training camps in a row.
I was always pretty good with making deals. When I was in sixth grade, when Pokemon cards were hot, I might have started with, like, three or four cards, and then at the end of the year, through trading with my friends and everything, I ended up with the biggest card collection in my school.
The crowd is a pretty good indicator when it’s good, because it’s kind of a universal energy that gets passed around.
Everywhere I go now, people are like, ‘That’s the guy from ‘Dancing With the Stars!’ It’s pretty good that you’re not just a football player but you’re in the entertainment world.
Twyla Tharp put it together from the material I wrote and recorded over my whole career. I thought it was pretty good, but how objective could I be?
When you’re headlining, people are paying to come see you specifically. It’s a different kind of pressure, because you’ve got to deliver. You’ve got to give these people what they paid for. It’s a different mind state, a different type of mentality, but it’s honestly a pretty good problem to have, you know?
I should remember more, and I have a pretty good memory.
The basic ability to not wipe oneself out, to endure, to use your technological interaction with the world in such a way that has the possibility of the likelihood of lasting and not being temporary – that seems like a pretty good definition of intelligence.
Shaking hands is a pretty good way to get yourself sick, not necessarily with Ebola, but with a million other germs that can cause colds and flu.
I really believe that if we were from another planet, and we sat down to put our heads together on torture experiments, the concept of sticking a needle into someone and sucking their blood out would probably qualify as a pretty good one.
What people don’t know about me is that I’m a pretty good businesswoman. Yes, I do this little ol’ game show, but I know the show isn’t going to last forever, so I’ve gone into different ventures. But I don’t want to sound like I’m bragging.
Most coaches would consider leading a team to an Olympic gold medal a capper for a pretty good year. The same goes for winning an NCAA national championship. Or a FIBA world championship. Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke Blue Devils and Team USA, led teams to each of these honorswithin about 24 months.
Craigslist does serve as a platform where people help each other for the basics, and also, shows people that the Internet is good for mutual support. I do feel pretty good about that.
Craig Newmark
I’d asked for things like the ‘Footloose’ soundtrack and Michael Jackson‘s ‘Thriller‘ for my birthdays, but I remember walking what felt like miles to this cassette shop called The Warehouse to buy Paul Simon‘s ‘Graceland,’ U2’s ‘Joshua Tree’ and a Roberta Flack album. I had pretty good taste.

Found out I’m actually a pretty good teacher.
I thought I was a pretty good shortstop, but I also wanted to play in the major leagues.
Being a public company is really terrible for most companies. I’d say Facebook and Google have done a pretty good job of standing up to the incredible quarterly pressure to hit numbers, but most companies – and I’ve observed a lot now – don’t do a very good job of that.
I’ve always thought that I’d make a pretty good police officer, except maybe for the danger part. I have a rare medical condition that makes it difficult for me to risk getting shot, so probably I’d have to be one of those officers who work in ‘do not shoot’ areas.
I feel like I have a pretty good head on my shoulders about what to expect and how to come in and work as a veteran.
I’m the one who made many of the bold comments that we’d seen the technologies from AMD as pretty good. Their technology in many areas was leading. But those are transient.
All my kids were raised on computers: They were home-schooled on the Internet, so they’re pretty good at that stuff. And I’m proud of them, but I don’t really keep up with it.
I expected to be a pretty good NBA point guard and hopefully win a championship. But MVP and all this stuff? Not really.
For over a year I continued to submit mss, and have them rejected – the last few with rejection letters indicated the story was pretty good, but I was American.
In Spain, we have a pretty good league – for me, I think it’s the second-best league in the world. They play tough there, they play aggressive. The big difference is that we play only one game a week in Spain, maybe two.
It’s true that you can’t take an individual rain droplet and say where it’s come from or where it’s going to end up. But you can say with pretty good certainty whether it will be cloudy tomorrow.
Our problem with President Obama isn’t that he’s a bad person. By all accounts, he too is a good husband, and a good father – and thanks to lots of practice, a pretty good golfer.
Life has been good to me. It’s not like I missed an awful lot. I had a pretty good lick here. Every moment gets a little more important.
Michael Landon
I firmly believe I never had too much of an opportunity after I left Cleveland. I was behind Jamaal Charles at Kansas City. I didn’t get too much playing time. I felt when I got in I did well. And then I was in Tampa and never really got to touch the field because of Doug Martin. He’s pretty good.
I’ve always been a pretty good athlete.
I was this weird misfit guy from suburban Seattle, I never really fit in, and then I became a drama geek, among all the other different kinds of geek that I was growing up, and I found I was pretty good at it.
I do love my country. I don’t think I’m particularly a good American. I don’t know what makes a good American. Other than somebody who – I like people who let other people alone. I think that’s a pretty good American. And I keep my hands to myself. So I’m an OK American.
If I like something, it seems a pretty good bet that other people will, too.
We had a pretty good life, growing up in Taiwan, and I think my dad really made a concerted effort to say hey, we’re going to take a chance and go halfway around the world so that my kids can have more opportunities.
A great writer is a great writer… Tolstoy was not a woman, but ‘Anna Karenina’ is still a pretty good book.
More often than not as a quarterback, your performance is a reflection of the guys around you. I’ve been fortunate to be around some pretty good guys.
I went into NXT with no expectations. That’s what I was told when I was hired – have no expectations, just do the best I could – and that’s always what I’ve done for the last fifteen years. That’s what I did, and you know, it’s obviously working out pretty good.
I read somewhere that abs are made in the kitchen, and I’d like to agree. I like to think that I try to eat pretty clean, pretty good food.
Parker Young
I went through a lot in my life that scarred me pretty good. I built a wall around myself to the point where nobody knew what was really going on inside of me, including myself.
HAG Records, is a company that I’ve owned. I’ve had a couple of gospel releases on it. We developed a pretty good distribution setup there and we do have something to use in case they don’t want to sign us.
Cute animals have a pretty good track record in animation for inspiring passionate fandom.
The polarity of Mitch Mitchell and Moe Tucker offers a pretty good understanding of what a drummer’s role is.
When I was younger, I could be pretty bitter. I still have moments, but I think I’ve gotten pretty good at rejection.
I think I proved what I always believed. That I’m pretty good.
I think generally I’m a pretty good person if I had to grade myself. Or toot my own horn.
The weird thing about my relationship with Reince is we were pretty good friends when I was a political donor writing checks to the RNC. But once I was about to enter the administration, for whatever reason, it was a little more adversarial.
I’ve played a lot of bad guys, and I’m pretty good at leaving my work at the office. And I look at acting as having a certain sort of therapeutic nature to it.
About four days a week, I do pretty good at having a morning prayer time. But even at that, it’s a rambling sort of thing. What I have learned to do better is to try to keep my mind turned toward God and ear inclined toward God throughout the day, and I think I’m doing better at that, but I’ve got a long way to go.
When you’re out here grinding away, firing at some flags, firing at the middle of the green, you just got to be very patient, and I always do a pretty good job of that in the majors.
What strikes me is that ‘XIII’ looks like a movie. The shot making is movie-like, which is kind of fun – the kind of playful action movie shot making is pretty, is pretty good. What’s also great about this game is its style and interesting story-line.
There’s a lot of animals in the open ocean – most of them that make light. And we have a pretty good idea, for most of them, why. They use it for finding food, for attracting mates, for defending against predators. But when you get down to the bottom of the ocean, that’s where things get really strange.
The Hall of Fame is pretty good at preparation and getting you ready for what to expect.
I look for something unique, and I look for people who haven’t reached their potential. I think I’m pretty good at developing talent.
Pop music has a pretty good track record of embracing queer culture.
There’s nothing I really want to accomplish. I already set my family up pretty good right now.
I think the greatest hip-hop artist of all time is Jay-Z, without a doubt. He just keeps amazing me with his performance, and since ’96, that guy has been producing at least one hit every summer and every winter. That’s a pretty good resume.
I’m pretty good with languages.
That’s a beautiful thing about India, they got such a big pool of players to call upon. If somebody gets injured, the replacements are generally pretty good.
But you know, I have a pretty good relationship with the press and the paparazzi. It’s just when they step over the line that, you know, enough’s enough.
The objective of a referee is not to get mentioned. I tell a lot of young referees that not being mentioned is king. If you can achieve that, that then it has been a pretty good game.
Alan Lewis
If there’s unemployment, having the government help reduce that unemployment, increase employment directly is a pretty good idea. It’s not driving out competition; it’s not crowding out.
The Jungle Bush Beaters didn’t last too long as a group, but we had a pretty good time while we did.
If you look at suburban education in New Jersey and New York, it’s pretty strong, intact, doing a pretty good job. You cap taxes for those communities, can we reasonably predict it’s going to be as strong 20 years from now?
I jumped off my lift, smashed my knee pretty good – my meniscus and everything. So I had to have surgery.
For a quarter of a century, I’ve been playing baseball for pay. It has been pretty good pay, most of the time. The work has been hard, but what of it? It’s been risky. I’ve broken both my legs. I’ve sprained everything I’ve got between my ankles and my disposition. I’ve dislocated my joints and fractured my pride.
Rabbit Maranville
I blurbed a nice book, not at all like my book ‘The Big Oyster,’ called ‘The Essential Oyster.’ I blurbed a pretty good book about meat called ‘Meathooked.’
I’m aware of how lucky I am. Being able to make pretty good money, and get to do a lot of fun work, and at the same time I’m not besieged by photographers.
My sister Susan, who was the first one, was pretty good in mathematics and then chess, and my father chose chess because it was easier to measure the results.
I’m pretty good for an old geek.
The story was such that I couldn’t make a graceful ending and then make a graceful new beginning. I could have, but I didn’t want to. So, it isn’t the most graceful way of writing a story. This new story is, I think, is pretty good stuff. I’m pleased with it anyway.
If there’s one thing, I’ve been pretty good at evaluating people.
I believe that God knows what each of us wants and needs. It’s not necessary for us to make it to church on Sunday to reach Him. You can find Him anyplace. And if that sounds heretical, my source is pretty good: Matthew, Five to Seven, The Sermon on the Mount.
We had a pretty good lead, so why push it.
David Wells
Well, rather than to give you my impression on Los Angeles, per se, my older sister‘s husband is and American, therefore I have a pretty good idea of the, perhaps the characteristics of Americans in general.
Two of my sons are themselves filmmakers, and we can’t afford them nor they us. They work in the real world and earn money and are pretty good at it.
I dont have a problem with taking photos on phones as they are pretty good quality now. But if you are really interested in creating more artistic images, it would be worth exploring a proper camera at some point!
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.
I love adversity. It really reveals people, and I think I’ve handled it pretty good.
