Being an actress wasn’t a plan at all, so what’s happened to me is very strange. Life isn’t very normal, even though I’m still very much a normal girl. I ride the subway, I ride the bus, and all of that.
I have a farm in Vermont; that’s my main residence, where I do lots of digging and mowing, and ride tractors – just so you don’t get the wrong idea that I’m too girlie!
Americans fear losing control if they’re forced to ride in autonomous vehicles. These same Americans fly in airplanes every day that largely are flown by computers, and impressively efficient ones at that.
I lead by example. My kids know what sweat is. They’ve seen me come home from so many runs and asked, ‘What’s on your skin? How did you get it?’ And I tell them, ‘It’s from exercise!’ So now my son will come home from a bike ride, take off his helmet and say, ‘Look, Mom. I’m sweating! I just worked out!’
Use gentle means before you come to extremity, and whatever lesson you work him, and never take above half his strength, nor ride him till he is weary, but a little at a time and often.
On ‘Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,’ I spent two or three months learning how to ride a motorcycle. I wasn’t really riding the motorcycle in 98 percent of the movie, but the shots of me getting on and off had to look like I had been doing it for years and years.
I was enjoying myself writing, because I don’t know what’s going to happen when I take a ride around that corner. You don’t know at all what you’re going to find there. That can be thrilling when you read a book, especially when you’re a kid and you’re reading stories.
I try to find some time for my horses. I began when I was a child, because I was born and grew up in a little village. And many people ride the horses. So, it was a big – it has been a big passion for me.
I’ve had a chance to fly a lot of different airplanes, but it was nothing like the shuttle ride.
Lyft Line came out of the vision that we’ve had from the beginning, which is how do we get the most affordable ride to everyone? Eighty percent of seats at all times on the road are empty. In Los Angeles, average car occupancy is 1.1, and if it were 1.3, there would be no traffic.
Not everything happens when you expect it; it is what it is. The people who ride with you, ride with you.
When people help me out, even with something like a move or a ride to the airport, I’m always thinking ‘Are you sure it’s okay? Are you sure you don’t mind?’
I suppose there must be idiots who dream of signing deals with publishers while fully intending to drink martinis in cool bars or ride around on skateboards. But the actual writers I know are experts in neurotic self-torture. Every page of writing is the result of a thousand tiny decisions and desperate acts of will.
My respect for Westerns have gone way, way up. It’s hard and treacherous work. It’s hard to find people these days who can ride horses like that and jump onto trains.
Playing for England was one long roller-coaster: some ups and downs, but also quite a few moments when you’re not really sure if you’re enjoying the ride.
I think there has to be an empathic strike between the reader and the protagonist. There has to be something said or known that connects the reader to this person you’re going to ride through the story with.
Whenever I come here to Ilocos, I get sentimental because I always remember that as a child, I would ride a bike with my father in Paoay near where they were shooting ‘Panday.’

I do the same things I did when I was 12 years old: I ride bikes, I read books, I walk in the woods. And I listen to music.
You can have the most amazing horse in the world and not be able to ride it, so it has to be a good match for sure.
Audiences are embracing more and more unique material. I think they can sense the cynicism when people are just cranking something out to try to ride off the success of something else. I think they can feel it.
If I could do anything, I’d ride horses all day.
I love to ride horses, hike in the woods with Juliette and appraise Longhorns.
I ride the same bike that I rode on ‘Sons,’ a Harley Dyna Super Glide. You know, I wish I wasn’t the guy who rode the same bike he rode on his show, but the problem is there’s no better bike out there.
There are certain fundamental things that scream, ‘I just moved to New York.’ Things like eating cheesecake at Junior‘s or heading out to Coney Island to ride the Cyclone.
I never ride just to ride. I ride to catch a fox. I play baseball to make the team.
I’m made to ride a bike, not do washing.
I’d call my time at Bayern Munich a roller-coaster ride.
It wasn’t easy navigating publicity when I started, because I grew up with ‘being famous,’ and I’m just not into it, and I guess defensiveness gets read into that. And I didn’t get an easy ride at the beginning.
Life ain’t always beautiful, but it’s a beautiful ride.
One thing I’ve learned about life is that if you really let go, it’s just a joy ride.
He was very commanding, and you had to know what you were doing to work for Mr. Rogers. I learned how to ride very quickly with him as my riding teacher.
When I get a beautifully written piece of material, I immediately start imagining how I would interpret it. I love just daydreaming about it for months, breaking it down, seeing where I can spin something. How I can turn this into the most fun ride for the audience that I can make it? That’s my job.
The first few years I was competing, I’d ride so well in practice, then choke and fall in competition. Now I take a deep breath and say, ‘Look at me. I’m outside. I’m doing what I love.’ Still, nothing’s matched the pressure I felt standing at the top of the halfpipe for the first time at the Olympics.
Making a film is so hard that if you don’t have your main actors going along with the ride with the rest of the crew it can make your life very difficult.
It could be a walk in the park, it could be a ride on your bicycle. It does not have to be an organized team activity… Be as creative as you want, but find a way to get your exercise in.
There’s this assumption that every British actor, they can ride horses. Definitely not!
My dad was always there, even though he wasn’t living in our house. He was always on the phone, always just a car ride away. Whenever he had a new recording, we would be the first to get the acetate. And it would say, in Dad’s handwriting, ‘Play it loud.’
It doesn’t have to happen for anybody at all, this acting game, so you have to count your blessings. If I am lucky that the right things have come along at the right time, I’m just going to ride that wave.
Life is a pretty awesome ride.
There are obviously peaks and valleys in everyone’s career. This business can be a roller-coaster ride, and it’s really hard to stay on top all the time. Very few people do.
One of the most important days of my life was when I learned to ride a bicycle.
I’ve jokingly said that everything I’m doing now is filling up the hours before I die, but I do feel that slightly. I have no religious beliefs so this is the ride. This is it. So I’m just like anyone, I suppose, trying to fill out the days in the most interesting way possible.
‘I’m a Celebrity‘ has been an amazing ride, and I’m walking out of here with some amazing friendships. It’s been awesome.
I began cycling round the Serpentine because it was the only closed route in London where I could ride traffic-free.
My little boy, West, and my wife, they’re my rock and that’s the thing that keeps driving me to do better at what I do professionally. There was a time in my career where I had been on this huge roller coaster ride and I’d really got in the spot where I could’ve hung up it and just been a songwriter.
I can’t help but smile when I ride Valegro; I think something, and he does it. I laugh, and I think, ‘God, how does he know? I didn’t even ask. I just thought it.’
In awe, I watched the waxing moon ride across the zenith of the heavens like an ambered chariot towards the ebony void of infinite space wherein the tethered belts of Jupiter and Mars hang, for ever festooned in their orbital majesty. And as I looked at all this I thought… I must put a roof on this toilet.
But I went to the University of Texas in the 30s, and while there I learned to ride. Mostly polo ponies.
I am disappointed when I don’t win, because I want to believe I can win on every horse I ride, which is a ridiculous thing to think. Even if I’m on a horse that I have woken up thinking has no chance, by the time I’ve reached the course, I’ll have convinced myself that it can win and will be disappointed if it doesn’t.
I don’t want a pickle, just want to ride on my motorsickle.
I didn’t jump onto anyone else’s coattail and ride their wave.
People have this fantasy that it’s all just an easy ride if you know someone important. Well, it’s not. I’ve known lots of people in this business – and it hasn’t really done anything for me.
The first year of the Boot Ride was an amazing experience. Seeing people come out from all over, ride and, most importantly, put on their boots, was an inspiration.
This is something I’ve always wanted to do- to skate through a part of New York City that thousands of people ride through every week, feeling the energy of one of the original stomping grounds of street skating.
There’s a line you have when you’re racing, and you can ride up to that line. If you push beyond it, you might crash. But first is first, second is forgotten. That’s what we say.

I ride my bike, I work out, I do a bit of, er, dancey things.
I would ride my horse to school.
My daughter is a horseback rider, so I try to watch her ride; we take holidays together.
I’ve got to be able to get my time off whether it’s just enjoying my house or the peace and quiet of my family and being there and cooking for them. I love doing that. I also love doing leisure things. I ride horses. I love to shop. I love to drive!
In all my wild mountaineering, I have enjoyed only one avalanche ride; and the start was so sudden, and the end came so soon, I thought but little of the danger that goes with this sort of travel, though one thinks fast at such times.
