I feel like every role you take, there’s a part of you that obviously feels like you can do it. I don’t know if perfect is the right word because I don’t believe in perfection. I don’t think it exists.
Sometimes it’s not even a role that’s specifically written for a woman. It could be a role written for a white man or Asian man, or Latino. If it’s something that I feel I could do well, I go after it. Especially if it’s nothing that has to be gender or race specific, I’m all over it.
My dream role would probably be a psycho killer, because the whole thing I love about movies is that you get to do things you could never do in real life, and that would be my way of vicariously experiencing being a psycho killer. Also, it’s incredibly romantic.

If you’re the person living closest to the parent who’s going to need help, and you take on the whole role of primary caregiver, you can be pretty sure your sibling who lives farthest away is going to call you and say, ‘You don’t know what you’re doing.’ Because they’re not on the spot, and they probably feel guilty.

I made a few records here and there by default, but I wasn’t ever comfortable in that role. I wasn’t comfortable on stage. We’ll see how it goes this time.
When I was right out of college, I felt competitive with some of the guys in my class over career stuff.

No actor ever forgets a role, so I should have realized something was wrong.
I think it’s important for little girls growing up, and young women, to have one in every walk of life. So from that point of view, I’m proud to be a role model!

I do not try to play a role. I feel good being myself and saying what I think.
I couldn’t be happier about being a part of ‘Hunger Games‘ and to play Katniss. I have a huge responsibility to the fans of this incredible book and I don’t take it lightly. I will give everything I have to these movies and to this role to make it worthy of Suzanne Collins‘ masterpiece.
It was my first straight dramatic role, and the most adult, intelligent one I have ever played.

If you want a CEO role, you have to prepare for it with a vengeance.
It was Jesus who gave me peace when the shark severed my arm. I trust in Jesus whenever I’m going through a hard time. I see all the beautiful things that have come out of my situation. I’m able to share my story with young girls who have few role models, and I can help others cope with what they have been through.
To argue that it is unconstitutional for local law enforcement to be a legitimate partner in immigration enforcement is shortsighted. It is evidence of a lack of commitment to securing our borders and a lack of appreciation for the proper role of the states in supporting federal law enforcement priorities.
The role of the musician is to go from concept to full execution. Put another way, it’s to go from understanding the content of something to really learning how to communicate it and make sure it’s well-received and lives in somebody else.
To me, it’s not about the lure of camera. It has always been a question of whether I can learn something new from a film role or not.
A person can be big, because of spirit. A person can be big because of their position in the family, the hierarchy in the family. That role has been played by women who are quite thin.
I think there is something about the Internet which gives people almost an opportunity to role play and to create a facade, an image. I see that as quite a dangerous development because I think what we call social networking, Twitter, Facebook, etc., is actually quite antisocial.
It’s almost like when you’re young, your friends take on the romance role, and then guys take on the role of your friends later.
I had many teachers that were great, positive role models and taught me to be a good person and stand up and be a good man. A lot of the principals they taught me still affect how I act sometimes and it’s 30 years later.
I know my role on this team, and I’m expected to prepare and to perform every week and play well. I relish that opportunity – to be somebody the guys can count on week in and week out, to play really well. That’s what really motivates me: to make my coaches proud, my teammates proud, and the fans proud.
For me, vision is just about the most important thing. So goggles play a huge role in my sport. I come to the competition with a bunch of different goggles and tons of different lenses in multiple tints. The weather can always be changing, and you have to have the right thing to make sure you can see perfectly.
The first meaning of ‘cognitive‘ for us is that observations of others are made phenomenologically: i.e., by attempting to take the role of the other, to see things from his or her conscious viewpoint.
The short hair fits my personality more. I think maybe, with long hair, it was a role – I was playing dress-up a bit.
The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it’s to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel that they’re valued.
I know this may come as a shock to most of you, but I’ve decided to quit acting. I will not be auditioning for anything anymore, and if I get offered something like a role in a movie or a commercial or something, I will graciously turn it down. It’s been great, but its just not for me anymore.

I think a primal role of a man in a relationship is to protect his woman.
I don’t have any regrets, because I think life is like a creek. It kind of meanders along, and you instinctively do the things you are meant to do. There’s no great plan except doing really good scripts, meeting great filmmakers. And I have to have something that I can bring to the role.
I understand that a lot of girls feel encouraged by what I have been able to do, but I’ve never felt like I’m a role model. I’m not concerned with building a great legacy or anything because I’ll be dead so it won’t matter.
I’m a firm believer that your lifestyle plays a key role in the state of your complexion.

Behind every easy role, there is a lot of hard work that goes in.
Football is a team sport, and each person plays a role – this is what counts.

There is obviously a gap between the public’s perception of the role of U.S. foreign policy and the elite‘s perception.
I’d love to be a role model for black kids, whether they play hockey or not.
It’s a controlling thing on stage – you’re directing the action, getting people to play their role. In real life, I take being kind and nice seriously, so the last thing I’d ever want to be is that weird, controlling, manipulative character.
Technology is playing an increasingly important role in the life of a footballer, and I guess that is true across most sports now.
When I was really young, the women’s national team wasn’t on a grand media stage, so my role models were male basketball and male American football players.

People thought I was trying to say that women had no say, no rights. I was not saying that. I was saying that women had a role, a duty. When they want to have a say in government – though in Africa they are not expected to do that – they are not discouraged. They can do what they want to do.
It is absolutely essential that the oppressed participate in the revolutionary process with an increasingly critical awareness of their role as subjects of the transformation.

Man’s role is uncertain, undefined, and perhaps unnecessary.
My priorities are going to be to play a very balanced role in the sense that I have to keep an eye on the challenges in the environment. At the same time, I have to keep an eye on the optimism that is there for India.

I like playing the villain role.
Innovation means taking risks, and that is where the private sector can play a role.

I think bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are great ideas. They should be allowed to be traded freely and used freely to find their appropriate role in the economy.

First there’s my role just as an executive being responsible for advertising, regardless of gender. I think that’s a position that I take seriously. That’s the first role.

Our role is to develop techniques that allow us to provide emergency life-saving procedures to injured patients in an extreme, remote environment without the presence of a physician.

Everybody should be able to enjoy their life, because you only live once. So I just want to get it all out there and be the best role model that I can be, if people want to put me in that kind of predicament. I mean, I didn’t ask to be a role model, because I’m not perfect.
I remember my first role as a sunflower at nine.
When I decided to leave the military, I realized that the skills I acquired there were transferable to the commercial world both in leadership and the information technology field. I made the decision to move to Oracle because of its strong leadership role.

There is no room for military people, including our veterans, to see themselves as victims, even if so many of our countrymen are prone to relish that role.
A young Brit girl with no theatre experience decided to take on an iconic American role on Broadway. Maybe I should have thought that through?
Back in the day, when the D.J. would be playing a record, I’d be on the mic trying to hype up the crowd.

I don’t mind playing even a grandfather provided the role is good.
Motherhood is not what was left over after our Father blessed His sons with priesthood ordination. It was the most ennobling endowment He could give His daughters, a sacred trust that gave women an unparalleled role in helping His children keep their second estate.

One of the reasons you take a role is because it’s something you always wanted to do, from going to the movies as a kid. I always wanted to do a 1950s movie, for example. And I got a chance to be in ‘Peggy Sue Got Married.’ I would have taken only one line of dialogue to be in that.
If I am to truly become an autonomous woman, then I must take over that role of being my own guardian.

There are many role models I’ve been around, and kind of the biggest one – there’s a show called ‘Push Girls,’ with all women in wheelchairs, and they’re all really good friends of mine. And one, Angela Rockwood, is still modeling, in a wheelchair. After a car accident.
I still do believe in carrying yourself a certain way, and I do my best to be somewhat of a role model. I’m not a perfect person. I’m a human being. I’m not the Lord, but I do accept that responsibility, and that’s why I do try to carry myself with confidence, with poise, with grace, and with class.
I don’t care about being a star. I can do a supporting role; I don’t have to be a lead.
CPEC will play its important role for eliminating terrorism and extremism and poverty alleviation in the region.

The mind cannot long play the heart’s role.
I wouldn’t say there’s a need for the Spice Girls, but I’d say there’s a place for the Spice Girls. There’s certainly a place for them, but you don’t promote the Spice Girls at the expense of promoting what I think are good role models for girls. You need to create some kind of equality.
The work is intense. You have to calculate a great deal very quickly which requires football intelligence and real concentration. Part of my role is to shuttle between the defense and the attacking lines to make sure that the ball circulates well and quickly.
When I say ‘publishing is the new literacy,’ I don’t mean there’s no role for curation, for improving material, for editing material, for fact-checking material. I mean literally, the act of putting something out in public used to be reserved in the same way.
I’ve always wanted to do a double role.
People are craving this great progress in electronics, going after computers, the Internet, etc. It’s a giant progress technologically. But they must have a balance of soul, a balance for human beauty. That means art has an important role.
I’m constantly thinking about the role, and there’s an infinite amount of questions you can ask yourself about a character to the point that it’s hard to find the boundaries of when to not work.
One role blends into the next role. I mean, there’s strange idiosyncrasies from roles that I play that I picked up that will never go away.

One of the ways that people avoid taking responsibility for their role in their own pain is what I call the BPs – blame and projection.

This may sound conceited, but the more predominant the role, the more comfortable I am on set.

No, I like being a role model because I know how much comfort my musical idols brought me.

People are not used to seeing an older woman on screen, unless she’s playing a character role. Why can’t they make a movie about a woman who’s forty-five who’s falling in love or getting divorced? Why does the leading role always have to be a woman who’s twenty-three or twenty-eight?
The two biggest characters I’ve created are probably the biggest things I’ve ever done for a role.
It’s so logical and so simple. Fat is the backup fuel system. The role it plays in the body is that when there’s no carbohydrate around, fat will become the primary energy fuel. That’s pretty well known.
Parents must lead by example. Don’t use the cliche; do as I say and not as I do. We are our children’s first and most important role models.
Let’s face it: Most of us don’t realize it, but we are failing our kids as reading role models. The best role models are in the home: brothers, fathers, grandfathers; mothers, sisters, grandmothers.

I believe in civil rights, but not in special privilege laws to allow flaunting homosexuals to become role models for children.

There’s got to be a role for an experienced football person helping the manager; not being a threat to the manager, but helping and sorting out a lot of the hassle he has, you know? Letting him concentrate on managing the football side.
I worked with Seann William Scott on ‘Role Models,’ and his arms are tatted up. He had to come to set an hour-and-a-half early to get them covered. It’s not worth it. I want that extra hour of sleep.

You always love to fantasize you’ll get your dream role.

I got the call to play Tony Manero in ‘Saturday Night Fever‘ in Madrid, a role I’d always wanted, as it’s such a well-constructed show, and my background is in musical theatre. I’d been travelling back and forth between London and Spain for auditions and had been borrowing money from friends to do it.
Many schools desperately need caring professionals like guidance counselors and social workers to ensure students’ emotional, social and educational needs are met. But proposals to arm teachers are irresponsible and dangerous. The role of educators is to teach and nurture our children, not to be armed guards.

Politics is politics; art is art. If you play a political role, you have to stop being an artist.
I don’t want to be just known for the way I dress. I want to be known for how I play, how I treat people, and how I am as a role model. I don’t just want to be, ‘He dresses cool’ or ‘He dresses crazy.’ You’re going to have lovers and haters. I want my golf game to be the main thing.
I’m not afraid of any kind of job, I’m not afraid to play any kind of role, as long as it doesn’t compromise my morals.
As God commands us men to teach your wife, to teach your children – to be the spiritual leader of your family – you’re acting as a priest. Now, unfortunately, unfortunately, in too many Christian homes, the role of the priest is assumed by the wife.
