I love video games. I’m also slightly in awe of them. I’m in awe of their power in terms of imagination, in terms of technology, in terms of concept. But I think, above all, I’m in awe at their power to motivate, to compel us, to transfix us, like really nothing else we’ve ever invented has quite done before.
When I read Thirteen Days I was moved by it. It was just a great time for the world, in terms of looking back in history and seeing how we got ourselves into trouble and how we got ourselves out of trouble.
I think there will be a 200-story skyscraper someday. However, it will require a developer who will not think in conventional terms and for whom economic restraints won’t apply.
Research has shown that middle-income wage earners would benefit most from a large reduction in corporate tax rates. The corporate tax is not a rich-man’s tax. Corporations don’t even pay it. They just pass the tax on in terms of lower wages and benefits, higher consumer prices, and less stockholder value.
It was a wonderful experience to play in the NFL, and I have no regrets. I truly will miss playing for the Lions. I consider the Lions’ players, coaches, staff, management and fans my family. I leave on good terms with everyone in the organization.
‘Think simple’ as my old master used to say – meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the simplest terms, getting back to first principles.
Turkey is a sovereign state, just like the U.S. We might go to different directions, in terms of our impressions and ideas, but we’ll always remain friends.
Because, you know, resilience – if you think of it in terms of the Gold Rush, then you’d be pretty depressed right now because the last nugget of gold would be gone.

We finally understand in general terms how a cell is organized, how its specialized organs function in a well integrated manner to insure its survival and replication.
Baboons who have friends do much better in terms of their physiology. And if that applies to a baboon, it could certainly apply for a human.
Iran is central to our foreign policy in the Middle East, a major player in global energy markets, and a key country in terms of our interaction with the Muslim world.

Our challenge in this regard will be to broaden the scope of our federal funds in terms of international diplomacy, development aid, and international assistance. Many Latinos in the United States look at Latin America and see trouble brewing.
Trump sees the world in terms of a zero-sum game. In reality, globalisation, if well managed, is a positive-sum force: America gains if its friends and allies – whether Australia, the E.U., or Mexico – are stronger. But Trump’s approach threatens to turn it into a negative-sum game: America will lose, too.
I like human stories. I like stories about situations we can relate to. I like movies like ‘Ordinary People‘ or ‘Terms of Endearment.’ Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, boyfriends, girlfriends. The stories to me that are worth telling are almost simple ones, but very relatable.
The more you know about the world, the more resources you have in terms of things that can inform your character or the circumstances that surround your character.

I’m witnessing the problems that the federal government is passing down in terms of drones, in violation of our civil liberties, spying on our citizens, death panels in the form of the government taking over the health care system and the national debt they’re just saddling our grandchildren with.
The poet, being an imitator like a painter or any other artist, must of necessity imitate one of three objects – things as they were or are, things as they are said or thought to be, or things as they ought to be. The vehicle of expression is language – either current terms or, it may be, rare words or metaphors.
The most important thing when you study hypnosis is that you learn that humans are irrational. Until you understand that, hypnosis is hard to do… For me, it was this great awakening to understand that humans are deeply irrational, and it’s probably the greatest influence on me in terms of my writing.
Comic art is just different. It’s art on its own terms.
Attack those concepts such as ‘third world.’ Think about it. If we look at it in terms of numbers, then people of color are the majority in this world. We should be the ‘first world.’
Football is definitely present in the tennis world. Given the mix of nationalities that exists in the changing rooms, there’s inevitably a bit of a rivalry between the players, especially in terms of the UEFA Champions League or competitions in which national teams compete.
Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.

Sportspersons at the grassroots must get world class exposure in terms of coaches, facilities, physical trainers and mental trainers so that a strong foundation is laid at the base. That’s the key to success.

Wealth, in terms of dollars and so forth, could be counted up, because dollars were finite. It doesn’t make any difference how many dollars you have-at a certain point you only have dollars. You start with finite, you end with finite.

I would certainly say that films like Time Code and the Loss of Sexual Innocence were far more rewarding to me in terms of being able to move forward as a filmmaker.
When people tell me that I must get my maverick gene from my father, they are only half right. My father and I both have inherited our rebellious personalities from Nana. She has always lived her life on her own terms, something that was once considered quite scandalous, given the times she grew up in.
For complicated historical and political reasons, we associate ‘poor‘ in our public consciousness with ‘black.’ Terms such as ‘welfare queen‘ and ‘culture of poverty’ became associated uniquely with the social maladies of African Americans in urban ghettos, despite the fact that poor whites outnumbered poor blacks.
Some people say there was no jazz tenor before me. All I know is I just had a way of playing and I didn’t think in terms of any other instrument but the tenor.

I want to give myself the best chance to finish on my own terms.
In terms of being a professional, I want to be professional with everyone.
Generally, you want to raise capital either when you have to or when it’s really easy. If the company desperately needs money, and they can’t figure out any other way, then they need to raise money.

It’s a challenge, but the benefits of maintain muscle mass on my legs is important because, as the biggest muscle group in the body, it also helps me keep the proper body composition in terms of fat to muscle ratio.
There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn’t bother to change while there are women like that around.

Everyone with a cell phone thinks they’re a photographer. Everyone with a laptop thinks they’re a journalist. But they have no training, and they have no idea of what we keep to in terms of standards, as in what’s far out and what’s reality. And they have no dedication to truth.

The Roman Empire was very, very much like us. They lost their moral core, their sense of values in terms of who they were. And after all of those things converged together, they just went right down the tubes very quickly.
Many of my fellow atheists consider all talk of ‘spirituality‘ or ‘mysticism‘ to be synonymous with mental illness, conscious fraud, or self-deception.

The status quo tough-on-crime policies of the ’90s and 2000s are not working and are not popular. And it provides me with hope about the possibilities for San Francisco and this whole country in terms of moving away from our dependence on prisons and jails to solve social problems.

It might interest you to know that the 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary identifies the optimist in complimentary terms, but says nothing about the pessimist. The word ‘pessimist’ was not in our vocabulary at that time. It’s a modern ‘invention‘ which I believe we should ‘dis-invent.’
The avant-garde theater is fun; it is free-swinging, bold, iconoclastic, and often wildly, wildly funny.

You have to believe in yourself. You have to go out there and love what you are and who you know you are in terms of your craft.

The promise of American opportunity and prosperity means something different to each of us. What we each envision varies in terms of wants and needs, and aspirations can change over time. But we all want to see our children have more opportunities than we had.
Take life on life’s terms – one day at a time. And have fun while you’re doing it.

In any merger, when you have large organisations coming together, there will be challenges in terms of culture.

My father never wanted me to be a writer. He didn’t – he came to terms with it maybe two years before he died.

Imagine the action of a vaccine not just in terms of how it affects a single body, but also in terms of how it affects the collective body of a community.

Success means at least you are finding full potential to who you are in terms of your intelligence, your capability and competence: you are finding full expression to who you are. This is important.
I love Australia; it was a really, really nice experience for me. It’s such a beautiful place. The people are beautiful – like, really beautiful – and they are beautiful in terms of their personalities. It’s a great place to be. It’s like you are in a little bit of a dream world.
And then as I frequently do, some times I’ll peek out from underneath the focusing cloth and just look around the edges of the frame that I’m not seeing, see if there’s something that should be adjusted in terms of changing the camera position.

I’m thinking in terms of a point of departure, a field of action for performers to express an expressive need of mine which hopefully the context of music would convey.

In terms of mathematics textbooks, why can’t you have the scale of a national market? Right now, we have a Texas textbook that’s different from a California textbook that’s different from a Massachusetts textbook. That’s very expensive.

In terms of individuals who actually inspired me, very few of the academic people that I had access to had that power over me. Maybe it’s simply because I wasn’t that committed to geometry.
Acting is such a personal thing, which is weird because at the same time it’s not. It’s for the consumption of other people. But in terms of creative outlets and expressing yourself, it’s just the most extreme version of that that I’ve ever found. It’s like running, it’s exertion.
Prada is extremely directed in terms of communicating what they like and what they don’t like. That is actually extremely pleasant because it clarifies very easily what you can do and what you need to do.
I mean yes to act out something or take chances in the performance is one thing. But in terms of a camera, whatever’s captured is captured so that’s a little more daunting.
I have come to terms with all the complications of my life.
Biology is far from understanding exactly how a single cell develops into a baby, but research suggests that human development can ultimately be explained in terms of biochemistry and molecular biology. Most scientists would make a similar statement about evolution.
I directed a short series for Hulu called ‘Paloma,’ and being in an editing room, I learned a lot about acting. It gave me a new bolt of energy in terms of my interest in filmmaking because it made me realize how collaborative filmmaking can be and also that you’re not just limited to one job.
To think Being itself explicitly requires disregarding Being to the extent that it is only grounded and interpreted in terms of beings and for beings as their ground, as in all metaphysics.
Every job I took, I was deeply uncomfortable in terms of feeling unqualified. Every step, every risk I took, built confidence.
When it comes to power, God Himself is the power. God often uses foolish things to confound the wise. That is why people like me will ever be grateful to God. In terms of knowledge, education and name, I am nowhere – a neglected stone.
Politics and the pulpit are terms that have little agreement.
Attack politics costs us dearly in terms of insight into the candidates. In a presidential campaign, the focus is so tight that the politicians are afraid to say anything that hasn’t been scripted.

When I left the show, the fans were so amazing in terms of the outpouring of support and continued support all that time whatever ways they could be in touch with me.
I feel like more than 80% of the world wouldn’t get up in front of 40 million people and dance on national television, and if I have the confidence to do that then that’s a step ahead in my life for me in terms of personal goals. I will gain a lot of confidence on all aspects right there.
I often avoid using the terms ‘figuration’ and ‘abstraction‘ because I’ve always tried to have it both ways. I want the experience of looking at one of my paintings to be similar to the process of making the painting – you go from the big picture to something very intense and detailed, and then back again.
All the major problems of the world today are global in essence, and they cannot be solved unless through some kind of global cooperation. It’s not just climate change, which is, like, the most obvious example people give. I think more in terms of technological disruption.
A major focus of ‘Reality Hunger‘ is appropriation and plagiarism and what these terms mean. I can hardly treat the topic deeply without engaging in it. That would be like writing a book about lying and not being permitted to lie in it.

I looked the people of Louisiana in the eye and told them exactly what I thought in terms that normal people use.
The notion of having your muse was not something that was built for women originally. That’s not to say women don’t have muses. I get muses in terms of actors or writers who inspire me, so I understand the concept.
The worth of a civilization or a culture is not valued in the terms of its material wealth or military power, but by the quality and achievements of its representative individuals – its philosophers, its poets and its artists.

An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else‘s.

Brazil has one of the greatest natural patrimonies in terms of biodiversity.
In terms of the production, the style I use is what I see as the ‘Lisa Stansfield sound’ and I would hope that when anyone puts on one of my songs they don’t even have to listen to my voice to know this is a Lisa Stansfield song, because of the way it sounds.
I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do everything… at least not at the same time. So think of your priorities not in terms of what activities you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.
Half of us are partly German! Half our language and culture, generally, in Anglo-Saxon terms, is German.
You know honestly I think there’s a Dracula, a Wolf Man, and a Frankenstein‘s Monster in all of us. They are sides of our own character so that’s why I think we can relate to them in terms of a ‘I know how that feels’ kind of thing.
In terms of establishing a connection between a therapist and a patient, that work needs to be done in person.
There’s a flipside to this; if you as an individual have the right to live on your own terms, you must have the right to both succeed and fail on them.
I take after my mother more than my father in terms of personality. My mother’s a worrier, and I’m a worrier. Both were very good with numbers and mathematics, so I kind of got that from both of them.

‘Camp’ is a vision of the world in terms of style – but a particular style. It is the love of the exaggerated.
The romantic person instinctively sees marriage in terms of emotions, but what a couple actually gets up to together over a lifetime has much more in common with the workings of a small business.

In terms of ‘Seinfeld‘, I think there’s lot of reality in a show that’s supposed to be about nothing.
In terms of sustainability and what we eat and what its footprint is on the environment and the consequences of eating one thing versus another, obviously it makes a lot of sense to be eating insects. They’re incredibly plentiful. They’ve got a very short turnover rate. You could be eating termites.
I think the parts that I played sort of broke the mould in terms of – you know, I played grey characters, the bad girl with a good heart, there was a good reason for her to be bad.
We tend to talk, Democrats, as a party, in legislative terms.
Communism counts its opportunities in terms of decades – not of weeks.

I love playing in Fantomas, which is very strict in terms of composition.
I think everybody has their own way of looking at their lives as some kind of pilgrimage. Some people will see their role as a pilgrim in terms of setting up a fine family, or establishing a business inheritance. Everyone’s got their own definition.

One of the most important things for me in terms of my working method is doubt. I get very insecure about my ideas. And I don’t say ‘insecure’ in kind of a paranoid way. I mean just: ‘Are they good enough?’ ‘Is this the right thing to do?’ I really beat myself up over that.
I learned years ago to come to terms with having so much done for me by others.
I’ve always wanted to be a DJ so I could play the music I love for other people. That feeling hasn’t changed, but my sets are always evolving. In terms of tailoring to a specific crowd, certainly I do play differently depending on the situation. It’s a different feel, for example, in a small club versus a festival.
I’m thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination – in terms of providing for my family – is absolutely my goal.
No other terms than unconditional and immediate surrender. I propose to move immediately upon your works.
As much as I loathe this aging thing, I’m beginning to recognize that I am now a healthier person in terms of self-worth and knowing who I am and where I fit in the world. That’s been a good trade-off for the wrinkles.
I had a teacher who stressed for me the importance of diction in terms of… I want to be very careful about how I say this… in terms of supporting one’s voice when one is singing. In other words, if you hold on to your words, your voice will pull through for you when you’re singing. So be true to your vowels.
The key to accepting responsibility for your life is to accept the fact that your choices, every one of them, are leading you inexorably to either success or failure, however you define those terms.

People that are able to think in terms of concepts and offer us valuable forms of art are very exciting to me.

Tourism is our second biggest industry in terms of the people it employs.
Superheroes fill a gap in the pop culture psyche, similar to the role of Greek mythology. There isn’t really anything else that does the job in modern terms. For me, Batman is the one that can most clearly be taken seriously.

To go somewhere where nobody knows you, and to keep your eyes open… That was a beautiful concept in terms of putting yourself in a place to be inspired.

I think in the case of my father, in terms of the things that influenced me, he never pressed me to go into academics or pressed me to go to a field, and indeed, my behavior was largely to move as far the other direction. I don’t think that’s uncommon with people with very successful parents.
Humour and high seriousness… Perfect bedfellows, I think. Though I usually phrase it in terms of comedy and darkness. Comedy without darkness rapidly becomes trivial. And darkness without comedy rapidly becomes unbearable.

I’ve been in and out of hospitals a lot in terms of family or extended family or myself.

Well, the coolest thing I have seen so far, in terms of, like, me being an astronaut and seeing something unusual, was the rendezvous, the docking of a Progress spaceship.

I usually talk about clothes in terms of a story rather than a colour.
When you make that choice of stepping out and facing the issue of disclosure, you do create this kind of self-imposed negative fear. It’s unfortunate it still happens today. ‘Do I step out and say I’m a gay guy?’ But you have got to do it and live your life on your terms and no one else’s terms.
The Canadian run can be no different, at least in terms of actual running.

As a former member of the IRA, I accept all the responsibilities that are due to me. But in terms of the individual circumstances, I don’t comment on that.

If my life depended on being a social-media person in terms of talking myself up, I probably would be in trouble because – not that I wouldn’t be able to step up to it – but I wouldn’t love it. I wouldn’t want to be that person; that wouldn’t be my natural thing.
‘Hannity’ had a a guy on that said, ‘I fathered 20 kids by 14 mothers.’ That is s cultural issue which has demeaned our society and has caused our society dearly in terms of imprisonment. Who’s going to be the fathers to those children? Who’s going to pay child support?
Other kinds of movie stars, it’s a different thing, they bring their persona to the part and that’s what people like to see, and they are not really transforming in terms of their character.
