All art is propaganda, and ever must be, despite the wailing of the purists.

Look at Ayatollah Khomeini’s revolution and the slogans that they used: anti-imperialism; anti-colonialism; the struggle of the have-nots against the haves; the state monopoly over economy, which was very much patterned after the Soviet Union. All of these things did not come out of Islam. Islam is not that developed.
Call it a coincidence, but my mother used to feel that I bear some resemblance to Poonam Dhillon.
I think sometimes people need to get used to an idea.
Working with Chiranjeevi sir, I realized the professionalism and attitude they used work with. It’s just so contagious. When such a personality is doing that, everyone around, too, would do that out of respect. Work was far more efficient, smoother.

Usually music is used to hide a film’s problems.
My music is rather abstract and maybe even strange-sounding for some people, so maybe that’s why it’s been used in so many horror movies and thrillers.
I always wanted to win, but I only used to get upset if I hadn’t done myself and the people around me proud – that was my motivation for always wanting to do better.

Movies like ‘Westworld’ used ideas I’d thought of a long time ago.

My father used to have an expression. He’d say, ‘Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about your place in your community.’
What’s different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio, now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders. It’s all part of the suffocating spin cycle we’re in. In media, politics and publishing, the conventional wisdom is to play to this base.
I’m used to seeing it, but it’s weird having an Academy Award. You usually only see one of them on the TV show when they give them out, so it’s kind of surreal to have one in your house.
When I was a youth, to be called ‘African’ was a diss. At school, the African kids used to lie and say they were Jamaican.

Over the years, a lot of rappers – Lil’ Wayne, Ice Cube – have used my name in their songs. I’m a real touchstone of history.

Quite often, I will do something and think, ‘Oh, no, she looks a little too much like me.’ I have tried to learn not to be afraid of that when that happens. I am not trying to obliterate myself and completely hide within the images like I used to.
Albert Einstein when asked what he considered to be the most powerful force in the universe answered: Compound interest! What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
Sometimes being old is used as an insult, which is bizarre because, if you’re lucky, that’s literally going to happen to you. It’s a strange thing to gloat about: being born recently.

When I was younger, I used to pray that I would die before my mom. That’s just how much my mom meant to me. I couldn’t imagine being in this world without her.

I had a speech class in elementary school. And you know how teachers, when a kid is struggling to pronounce a word, used to lead him and say, ‘Johnny, sounds like… ? Johnny, sounds like… ?’ I said out loud, ‘Sounds like Johnny can’t read.’ Teacher told me to leave the room.

I always wanted to know, and I always used to daydream, about what it would be like to stand on a really big stage and sing songs for a lot of people, songs that I had written… Daydreaming was kind of my No. 1 thing when I was little, because I didn’t have much of a social life going on.
I used to own two homes in Atlanta. But it was a lot of trouble. There are leaky roofs; you have to call people. It takes up too much time to own property everywhere. Now I stay at the St. Regis. I used to like cars a lot, too. I had 25 of them: Porsches, Ferraris.
I was born in a very poor family. I used to sell tea in a railway coach as a child. My mother used to wash utensils and do lowly household work in the houses of others to earn a livelihood. I have seen poverty very closely. I have lived in poverty. As a child, my entire childhood was steeped in poverty.
I used to think interacting with people in the audience, touching people in the crowd, was a total ego-based thing. I never realized how fulfilling it would be. It’s more about being on the receiving end – it’s people giving. That’s a powerful realization.

It used to be that you needed a $500-million-a-year company in order to reach a worldwide audience of consumers. Now, all you need is a Steam account. That changes a whole bunch of stuff.

On this ancient and miraculous world, where such beautiful natural and living things have evolved, something has gone wrong when life itself is used as a manufacturing process.
I used to play a lot of villains. You have to break out of it, and I did.

Prayer is good: but when used as a substitute for obedience, it is naught but a blatant hypocrisy, a despicable Pharisaism.
I know Jim Cornette says the reason that I’m successful now is because I changed my attitude, and I must be listening to what people tell me now, and I used to not listen to him. But the thing is, I used to not listen to him or question his methods because I didn’t agree with him, and I didn’t share his vision.
In Blow-up I used my head instinctively!
They gave their money, and they gave their screams. But the Beatles kind of gave their nervous systems. They used us as an excuse to go mad, the world did, and then blamed it on us.
I used to refer to myself as a ‘theoretical anorexic,’ just as crazy when it came to body image, but saved by a lack of self-discipline. My daughters do everything better than I do – they’re smarter, more beautiful, happier. What if they end up better at anorexia, too?
When I decided to become vegetarian, I had to learn how to ‘recook,’ if you will. For example, I used to put red wine in a big pot with the meat that I’d cooked in fat, and it was, of course, delicious. When I gave up meat, I wondered what I would make. That turned out to be vegetables, really organic and fresh.
When I used to perform weddings, the image I always had was the image of a triangle, in which there are two partners and then there is this third force, this third being, that emerges out of the interaction of these two. The third one is the one that is the shared awareness that lies behind the two of them.
There is a drama queen in me, as I love acting, and I used to stand in front of the mirror and act since my childhood.

I used to work in ‘Big Brother‘ in the third series, I was a logger, which was the worst of all jobs, you had to sit and watch what happens and type it into a computer.
Technology is a bit of a double-edged sword. Used right, it’s a wonderful tool, but unfortunately, it makes it easier for a lot of mediocre people to get really crappy ideas out.
I remember where I was when I first heard ‘Boyz N The Hood’ – 126th Street and Normandy, South Central, Los Angeles. I remember that I was on my porch. What they described in that song was so vivid and so clear to me because it was the kind of life I was used to witnessing and partly experiencing in my neighborhood.

I remember, I used to get off a bus, and if there was someone sitting in the station, I remember thinking maybe they were from Shin Bet and came for me.
I did a guest appearance on ‘Entourage.’ That was horrible, because I’m used to analysing the characters, working with all the details… and they said, ‘No no no, walk and talk, walk and talk! It’s energy energy energy!’ – so it didn’t quite suit me.
My grandmother used to make the most incredible chicken divan, and my mom has carried out that tradition. It’s my comfort food. It’s amazing how you can almost taste the memories with a dish like that! And the more leftovers, the better.
People are wrong when they say opera is not what it used to be. It is what it used to be. That is what’s wrong with it.
In the past, people used to tell me to shut up a bit. But what I believe is to put out your opinion and let everyone else react. If I’m wrong, I’m wrong.
Eyebrows are really important because they structure the face. In school it was funny because I was always the one walking around with tweezers plucking my girlfriends‘ eyebrows. I was really good; eyebrow tweezing runs in my family – my mother used to do mine, and I picked it up.
I have so much chaos in my life, it’s become normal. You become used to it. You have to just relax, calm down, take a deep breath and try to see how you can make things work rather than complain about how they’re wrong.
The concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has long been used as an effective lens through which to examine the actions business can take toward ensuring mutual long-term well-being and sustainability.

I may not be where I want to be, but thank God I am not where I used to be.
Kevin Systrom of Instagram used to work for us as a consultant in the early days of Mint. I knew him a long time ago. Maybe I could have gotten in there. But with photo sharing, I don’t know if there’s an obvious business model. I don’t think there’s a competitive, sustainable advantage.
I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone.
I stopped worrying about how other people define me a little bit ago. I used to care a lot. Now I just don’t care that much. Really, what I’m worried about is, am I being the best me I can be?
I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.
My mom had a produce business in in Oxnard, and we used to take these long trips to talk to farmers and different distributors. She’d take us with her after picking us up from school, and she’d be blasting all this old soul music and R&B. I knew all those O’Jays songs before I knew Snoop or Dre or Tupac.
I did give leg-spin a try as well. I used to play a lot of under-arm cricket in the streets of Chennai. I can spin the legbreak a mile. But when I tried it, a lot of people discouraged me saying it was very difficult.
I like to read my diary occasionally to remind myself what a miserable, alienated old sod I used to be.
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
It used to be when you eat, you eat with people. But instant noodles are so instant that people eat by themselves. And it’s a very convenient way of eating but also a very lonely way of eating.

It’s not that I take pride in being unfashionable. It’s just that I’ve gotten used to it.

I believe that the primary role of the government is to protect people and not run their lives. You used to be able to believe that in the Democratic Party.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.
I used to bodyguard for Muhammad Ali, Leon Spinks, Sugar Ray Leonard. I used to bodyguard a lot of diamond merchants; I would travel with a suitcase full of diamonds and take them from point A to point B. My reputation grew because I was a professional. I did my job, and I was courteous – a no-nonsense guy.
I used to watch old clips of Muhammad Ali, where he’d be talking the jive during interviews, you know, ‘Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, rumble, man, rumble.’
The American Dream is a term that is often used but also often misunderstood. It isn’t really about becoming rich or famous. It is about things much simpler and more fundamental than that.

I never get used to going out and seeing 20, 30,000 people that are there to see us play. It’s kind of surreal.
They always say, ‘Time heals.’ But it really doesn’t. You just get used to it. I live life with the mentality of ‘OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.’ So going forward, anything bad that happens can’t be nearly as bad as what happened before.
People used to complain that selling a president was like selling a bar of soap. But when you buy soap, at least you get the soap. In this campaign you just get two guys telling you they really value cleanliness.
I used to make up stuff in my bio all the time, that I used to be a professional ice-skater and stuff like that. I found it so inspirational. Why not make myself cooler than I am?

Old music used to mean something. There is none of that today.
Contraceptives should be used on every conceivable occasion.
I used to know things intellectually, but now I feel them. Now I feel that my body is part of nature, so being sick is just a process of nature, and death is a process of nature, and being reborn through the soil is a process of nature.
Whenever they sang a certain song in church, I used to sing it the loudest: ‘Lead me, guide me, along the way!’ One day, as I was singing this song, I felt as if the Lord was saying to me, ‘Lead you along what way?’ I realized then that if you don’t have a plan, God doesn’t have anything specific to direct you in.
Courteousness is consideration for others; politeness is the method used to deliver such considerations.

Records used to be documents, but now record companies want product.
I do genuinely believe that the political system is not linear. When it reaches a tipping point fashioned by a critical mass of opinion, the slow pace of change we’re used to will no longer be the norm. I see a lot of signs every day that we’re moving closer and closer to that tipping point.
I was raised Catholic, but then I discovered Buddhism, and I used to have a boyfriend who was a Scientologist, and they are all good religions that help people. As far as I’m concerned, you can have all three religions at once and it’s okay!
I was born in Paris, and it’s a beautiful place, but London feels like home. I like the village feeling, I like running in the parks – even the food isn’t as bad as it used to be.
The truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. It sometimes causes us difficulties at home and abroad. It is sometimes used by our enemies in attempts to hurt us. But the American people are entitled to it, nonetheless.
I used to work, like, for 16 hours a day, or sometimes 24 hours.
I used to walk through the Old Times Square fearing for my life. Now I wouldn’t be caught dead there.

On rare occasions, Dad used to reminisce about when he met Eisenhower and how Churchill would pop in, in the late hours of the evening or night, carrying a cigar, when he’d obviously had a good dinner.
Don’t make things too complicated. Try to relax, enjoy every moment, get used to everything.
When you are chiselling a sculpture, it won’t happen in one day, it happens over a period of time. It’s the same way that my personality has changed over the past 15 years. I am not the same person I used to be and my life experiences are what have made me.
My hair is really easy. I used to wear it very curly on air, but they prefer a smoother look on television. I just flat iron it and do big barrel curls.
Voltaire made up his mind to destroy the superstition of his time. He fought with every weapon that genius could devise or use. He was the greatest of all caricaturists, and he used this wonderful gift without mercy.
I have very simple tastes. An ex-girlfriend used to tell me I have the palate of a kid because there are only five or six foods that I love. And if you rotate them on a regular basis, that’s all I need to eat – like arugula, spinach, and grilled chicken.
It’s something he used to say when he was happy. It could be a very, very simple day. We might be sitting out on the front lawn. Dad loved classical music and we might be listening to some Stravinsky or something and having some tea and eggs. And he’d say, ‘Oh, good stuff, isn’t it?’
I guess I’m quite used to not being understood rather than being understood.
I’m a Roman Catholic. Or was. I was brought up that way and used to say my prayers every night, but I don’t pray to God any more. I might use the usual phrases I picked up from my parents, ‘Oh, if God spares me next year…’ or ‘Please God…’ but they’re only phrases.
Nostalgia is, ‘Hey, remember the other mall that used to be there?’
I will never, ever support a law that could clearly lead to an abuse of power just because of some lip service assuring me that it won’t be used that way. To me, that’s not enough.
In the old days, people used to risk their lives in India or in the Americas in order to bring back products which now seem to us to have been of comically little worth.

I used to be a hopeless romantic – I fell in love with everyone I went out with.
Beauty is an asset, just like physical prowess, charisma, brains or emotional intelligence. The key with any gift is in the way that you use it. It doesn’t define you as a person. Rather, it’s an asset to be used judiciously and with an understanding of how it is just a small part of who you are.
We are so used to dissembling with others that in time we come to deceive and dissemble with ourselves.
Boys used to call me Soda in school days. Soda means ‘serving officers daughters association.’ I miss those days when I had a very protected life: one could get close and bond with other army people that they gradually would become your extended family.
Growing up in an Italian family, we used our body to convey a message.
Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.
I think there is an enormous sea change happening in the global workforce. It has a lot to do with globalization. I think that people used to have a hope for a career or meaningful employment, and its been reduced to internships, part-time work or just grossly underpaid work.
Nashville used to have more integrity than just looking at the bottom line.
I love sports – I used to play volleyball really competitively…I went to Junior Olympic qualifiers, and I’ve ridden horses my whole life.
The space shuttle was often used as an example of why you shouldn’t even attempt to make something reusable. But one failed experiment does not invalidate the greater goal. If that was the case, we’d never have had the light bulb.
Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.
I used to look like an American flag. The Padre uniform makes me look like a taco. Actually, the transition has been great. I’ve made 25 new friends, and I never thought I wanted to be anything other than a Dodger, but this is fun.
You go into the disease as one person and come out of it as a different person. It has changed my perspective on everything. Things that used to upset me no longer do.
Since the tubes of paint used by the artist are manufactured and ready-made products, we must conclude that all the paintings in the world are ‘ready-mades aided’ and also works of assemblage.
Almost any poll of regular churchgoers will reveal that their favorite book in the New Testament is the Gospel of John. It is the book that is most often used at Christian funerals.
I was raised by a strong mother who always taught me to speak up, I never had difficulty leaving an uncomfortable situation or cutting eye contact; people used to call me cold.
My own people, the South Vietnamese, had been bombing trade routes used by the Viet Cong rebels. I had not been targeted, of course. I had simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Things ain’t what they used to be and never were.
I’m not a team player. I’m used to having total control over everything I do.

‘Inspiration’ is a word used by people who aren’t really doing anything.
Any tool can be used for good or bad. It’s really the ethics of the artist using it.
When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability… To be alive is to be vulnerable.
I used to get criticized for putting food in novels.
I’ve usually used the phrase ‘stay the course’ as one of the great rules of investment success.
Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in… I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards… It wasn’t until I started attending red carpet events and was flown out to Paris for my first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everything.
I used to wake up at 4 A.M. and start sneezing, sometimes for five hours. I tried to find out what sort of allergy I had but finally came to the conclusion that it must be an allergy to consciousness.
I remember at one point being in fellowship, and everyone used to wear the fish symbol; it said you were a Christian. So I asked my father, ‘Dad, why don’t you wear that at work?’ And he said, ‘Your religion should be in your actions.’ He set a great, great example.
We are seeing robotics creep into all areas and become accessible, where it used to be something tedious that only the most persistent people could access.
I think that both parties should declare the debt limit as a political weapon of mass destruction which can’t be used. I mean, it is silly to have a country that has 237 years building up its reputation and then have people threaten to tear it down because they’re not getting some other matter.
The practice mirror is to be used for the correction of faults, not for a love affair, and the figure you watch should not become your dearest friend.
I am a big Beatles fan. And, you know, unbeknownst to anyone, I used to be one. But I have no problems of putting titles and lines from other songs in my songs, because they’re great lines and great titles.
Can I jump over two or three guys like I used to? No. Am I as fast as I used to be? No, but I still have the fundamentals and smarts. That’s what enables me to still be a dominant player. As a kid growing up, I never skipped steps. I always worked on fundamentals because I know athleticism is fleeting.
I think if you live in a black-and-white world, you’re gonna suffer a lot. I used to be like that. But I don’t believe that anymore.
I think one of the greatest joys I have now in my career and in my profession is to be playing at an age where I can appreciate it more than I used to… It’s a whole different lens you look through the older you get.
I’ve kind of become used to making new friends.
As I get older, I tend to put more into family than I used to.
I used to be teased for the way I wore my hair at school. I used to do things like wear a different-colored sock on each leg.
I try not to be too invasive into my personal life. When I was younger, I used to tweet a lot, everything I was doing and feeling. I can’t do that anymore, because it’s just giving people too much room to judge.
Kip Keino, Moses Tanui, Paul Tergat, they all come from my tribe. Some say it is the food we eat that makes us strong, the way we live. In the history of our people we wear no clothes and we are used to drinking the blood of animals.
Art is the production of objects for consumption, to be used and discarded while waiting for a new world in which man will have succeeded in freeing himself of everything, even of his own consciousness.
I used to tell my husband that, if he could make me ‘understand’ something, it would be clear to all the other people in the country.
I seriously love to cook… My grandmother was an amazing cook. As a kid I used to help her make handmade pasta, Cavatelli and Ravioli. It was one of my favorite things to do. I love the idea of making whatever is in the fridge into something.
We used to play music for fun. Much more than now. Now nobody picks up a guitar unless they’re paid for it.
I’m not the same person I was. I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me. I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that.
I was so ugly my mother used to feed me with a sling shot.
Art used to be made in the name of faith. We made cathedrals, we made stained-glass windows, we made murals.
Must! Is must a word to be addressed to princes? Little man, little man! Thy father, if he had been alive, durst not have used that word.
My mother used to leave me and my brother in the house by ourselves. The authorities came and got us. It took a year or two to get us back with my grandmother.
I think, in general, medicine in the 21st century will switch from healing the sick to upgrading the healthy… If you find ways to repair the memory damaged by Alzheimer‘s disease or dementia and so forth, it is very likely that the same methods could be used to upgrade the memory of completely healthy people.
In many respects I have gone out of my way to avoid the usual approach adopted in crime novels. I have used some techniques that are normally outlawed – the presentation of Mikael Blomkvist, for instance, is based exclusively on the personal case study made by Lisbeth Salander.
For technology companies, information about what people do online is extremely valuable – it can be used to sell targeted advertising or sold to data clearinghouses.
I used to clean the sets and serve tea to the artistes.
When I used to return in the early morning after late-night programmes, the first people I see on the roads at the break of dawn are sweepers, newspaper vendors and milkmen. Since they were all from my hometown, I would stop to talk to them before going home. So I am quite used to their lifestyle and work.
What we need to do is always lean into the future; when the world changes around you and when it changes against you – what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind – you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy.
The United States did not act in Iraq in 1988 when gas was being used on the Kurds or when gas was used in the Iranian–Iraq War.
Our world is evolving without consideration, and the result is a loss of biodiversity, energy issues, congestion in cities. But geography, if used correctly, can be used to redesign sustainable and more livable cities.
The lunacy continues and has every chance of becoming a way of life unless we stop it soon. Men are getting so used to wars that the psychiatric wing of the RAMC are planning how to break the news to the men when the war is over.
Every town has the same two malls: the one white people go to and the one white people used to go to.
I used to be hung up on my figure, but it’s a waste of time. I don’t believe in diets. Have four pints one night, be healthy the next.
Nothing about the priesthood is self-centered. The priesthood always is used to serve, to bless, and to strengthen other people.
Consumers used to think they had to compromise with solar. It was, ‘Okay, I’m doing the right thing for the environment; it’s cool to see the panels. I have to compromise on the cost and convenience side.’ And now they no longer have to. On the cost side, it’s cheaper, and on the convenience side, we set it all up.
I used to think that anyone doing anything weird was weird. I suddenly realized that anyone doing anything weird wasn’t weird at all and it was the people saying they were weird that were weird.
When I was in school with my friends and stuff, you always used to put yourself in the situation of footballers of the time and pretend to be them.
The value and utility of any experiment are determined by the fitness of the material to the purpose for which it is used, and thus in the case before us it cannot be immaterial what plants are subjected to experiment and in what manner such experiment is conducted.
The future ain’t what it used to be.
I used to want the words ‘She tried’ on my tombstone. Now I want ‘She did it.’
I used to sell furniture for a living. The trouble was, it was my own.
Nostalgia is not what it used to be.
I absolutely don’t care about my looks and I’m so used to them that I wouldn’t change a thing. I would end up missing my defects.
I used to starve myself to death.
I used to watch a lot of motivational films and videos to remain positive.
The hardest part of fame and success is adapting to the people around you that’s changing. It changes the way people look at you from how they used to look at you. They listen to you on the radio, they look at you on TV and when people speak on you in a good light, you have a couple people who hold grudges.
I shared a dressing room with Alan Shearer. I used to watch the opposition looking at him, and they’d be thinking they need to score more than one because Shearer is going to score, and he scores every game. That psychological advantage is fantastic.
I’ve used my femininity and my sexuality as a weapon and a tool… but that’s just natural.
We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about ‘and’.
Great minds are to make others great. Their superiority is to be used, not to break the multitude to intellectual vassalage, not to establish over them a spiritual tyranny, but to rouse them from lethargy, and to aid them to judge for themselves.
I have no time for the endless nostalgia: ‘Oh gosh I used to . . . ‘ Life is too short; I don’t have any time for sitting and saying I miss things. What’s the point? Go and do something else.
I love to chit-chat and used to be the first to arrive at a party and the last to leave.
Your world is a living expression of how you are using and have used your mind.
I used to love listening to Jazzy Jeff.
I used all diligence to arrive at London and therefore I now gave my crew a certificate under my hand, of my free and willing return, without persuasion or force by any one or more of them.
I used to worry about what life was for – now being alive seems sufficient reason.
If you haven’t used Bitcoin first-hand, you may not get the inherent advantage of a quicker appreciation and understanding of its potential. Seeing assets move swiftly without intermediaries is an eye opening experience, and that is just a starting point.
I used to work in the cotton fields a lot when I was young. There were a lot of African Americans working out there. A lot of Mexicans – the blacks and the whites and the Mexicans, all out there singing, and it was like an opera in the cotton fields, and I can still hear it in the music that I write and play today.
Is science of any value? I think a power to do something is of value. Whether the result is a good thing or a bad thing depends on how it is used, but the power is a value.
I used to be so intensely preoccupied by unhappiness… now there are times where you might get down, but you can move on much faster now.
My mother used to tell me, No matter what they ask you, always say yes. You can learn later.
I have no fear of photography as long as it cannot be used in heaven and in hell.
I’m not politically motivated. I used to be – passionately. I used to be very Left wing. Then I went very Right wing, and now I rest somewhere in the middle.
The word ‘iconic‘ is used too frequently – an icon is a statue carved in wood. It was shocking at first, when I got that reference. It was a responsibility, and it’s impossible to live up to – you’re supposed to be dead, for one thing.
My father used to see God in human beings and in his work. Each person has his own way.
The future, like everything else, is not what it used to be.
I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.
Once we’re willing to confront our emotional suffering, we begin making choices based on attraction instead of aversion, love instead of fear. Where we used to think about what was ‘safe,’ we now become interested in doing what seems right or fun or meaningful or ripe with possibilities.
The first thing you have to get used to in any kind of acting is the ability to make a fool of yourself. If you haven’t learnt how to make a fool of yourself, you shouldn’t be on the boards. That’s absolutely what it’s all about.
History is a tool used by politicians to justify their intentions.
One of my insecurities was my looks. I was short, cute and chubby, and Dad used to call me his ‘little fat sausage.’ But I always knew I had musical talent.
I have been through various fitness regimes. I used to run about five miles a day and I did aerobics for a while.
As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged; it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and time in which it is used.
It used to be, everyone was entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts. But that’s not the case anymore. Facts matter not at all. Perception is everything.
When I hit 16, I got a scooter to ride to school. It was bright pink, and I saw on the ownership papers that Jonathan Ross once owned it. My friends slated me for it because of the colour, but it was cool. My father used to ride, and my mother’s boyfriend has a bike, so we’re a bit of a biker family.
The older I get the better I used to be!
My attitude toward graduate students was different, I must say. I used graduate students as colleagues: I gave them the best problems to work on, and I encouraged them.
If God only used perfect people, nothing would get done. God will use anybody if you’re available.
I used to have the same lunch every day, for 20 years, I guess, the same thing over and over again.
I think music is something that can, and should, be used to get you into different things because eventually what goes up must come down – we’re not going to be the number one group in the world forever – so you have to have something else to fall back on.
I used to beat up kids and bite kids and do stuff all the time.
The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.
When I was a kid, I used to pretend to be Bond; I used to make up scenarios and irritate my sister and annoy my mother and father pretending to be someone else, so I kind of was already acting when I was a child. I just didn’t really know it.
I used to go down every year for the remembrance of Elvis‘ birthday. Memphis State College invited me to sit in the auditorium and speak to the people for one of those Elvis days.
A great secret of success is to go through life as a man who never gets used up.
I was cycling until I was 68. I used to play football, cricket, tennis, table tennis. I was into road walking – heel and toe.
I have to say I’ve worked very few days of my life. I used to have to cut the lawn, and when I was in junior high school, I worked at a concession stand at a stadium.
Skimmed milk was what they used to give to prisoners and workhouse inmates to go with their porridge and gruel. It’s a punishment, not a drink.
You know, Nirvana used to start rehearsals with the three of us just jamming. For, like, a half an hour, just noise and freeform crap – and usually it was crap. But sometimes things would come from it, and some songs on Nevermind came from that, and ‘Heart Shaped Box’ and stuff on ‘In Utero’ just happened that way.
The great thing about getting older is that you become more mellow. Things aren’t as black and white, and you become much more tolerant. You can see the good in things much more easily rather than getting enraged as you used to do when you were young.
People used to come knocking on my door saying, ‘Your trouble is that you’re a sex symbol who doesn’t do enough sexy things.’ I’d say to myself, ‘You think that if you pressure me I’ll fold.’ But if I did it, all it would mean is that I sold out.
I’ve become more introverted as I’ve got older. I used to be an outgoing person who joked around a lot, but as the amount of energy I expend by sharing my music has increased, I like to balance it by spending time by myself and recuperating.
In the Lamborghini I have to avoid certain roads because of pot holes, and there’s nowhere to put my drink, no cup holder. And I’m not going to lie, it looks pretentious. I used to think it was cool to, like, drive it to dinner. Now? Like I really need to be looked at any more.
My grandma used to sing. I feel like it’s in our blood!
I used to be scared of uncertainty; now I get a high out of it.
When the Bangladesh war happened, people in Pakistan who did not support it were called unpatriotic. My father was in the jail at that time, and a lot of those who knew my family used to call us children of a traitor.
America… just a nation of two hundred million used car salesmen with all the money we need to buy guns and no qualms about killing anybody else in the world who tries to make us uncomfortable.
My wife Martha used to call me Ol’ Lemon Face because of my facial contortions when I play Lucille. I squeeze my eyes and open my mouth, raise my eyebrows, cock my head and God knows what else. I look like I’m in torture, when in truth, I’m in ecstasy. I don’t do it for show. Every fiber of my being is tingling.
I’ve got a friend who is a lion tamer. He used to be a school teacher till he lost his nerve.
While growing up, I used to sleep at 8 P.M. and get up at 4 A.M. to study.
On a personal note, I used to work for years out on South Beach, running security in nightclubs and doing bodyguard work.
I would like to fly in space. Absolutely. That would be cool. I used to just do personally risky things, but now I’ve got kids and responsibilities, so I can’t be my own test pilot. That wouldn’t be a good idea. But I definitely want to fly as soon as it’s a sensible thing to do.
Never, ever deal with terrorists. Hunt them down and, more important, mercilessly punish those states and groups that fund, arm, support, or simply allow their territories to be used by the terrorists with impunity.
After 9/11, the amount of applicants the FBI received increased exponentially. Whereas you used to require a college degree, and it was a small group of people who were just out of college, after 9/11, it changed.
I had an incredibly full life with my imagination: I used to have all sorts of trolls and things; I had a wonderful world around my toys and invented people. I don’t mean I had imaginary friends; I just had this big imagination thing going on. I didn’t need any imaginary friends, because I had so much other stuff going on.
Fitness is not about being better than someone else… It’s about being better than you used to be.
Cricket is my life. Before the cancer, I was happy-go-lucky. I used to think about my career and worry about the future. But post it, my thinking has completely changed. I’m happy to eat and breathe normally. I’m happy to have my life back.
I was taught to whistle as a little girl by an undertaker. I used to sit in his workshop, watching him planing wood for the coffins, and he used to whistle all the time – and eventually I started whistling, too. I can whistle anything, particularly trumpet tunes from Classic FM.
I had a song back in 1992 talking about ‘It’s all good.’ Then my partner Theo who used to work for 92.3 The Beat in L.A. started saying ‘You know it’s all good’ on the radio and everybody took it back to their soils like that was the new Cali word. But that’s a regular word form the Bay Area.
It’s something you dream about, working in Scotland, working in Glasgow, walking down the same streets I used to walk down when I was a drama student, daydreaming about being in an American TV show or doing something that was well known. I guess I sort of pinch myself.
My relationship with the mountains actually started when I was 16. Every year, a group used to be taken from Auckland Grammar down to the Tangariro National Park for a skiing holiday.
Every time there’s a new tool, whether it’s Internet or cell phones or anything else, all these things can be used for good or evil. Technology is neutral; it depends on how it’s used.
They have different styles. Scolari is used to coaching national teams and Mourinho clubs. Both are very successful. They are professionals as well as winners.
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.
I think the high-tech industry is used to developing new things very quickly. It’s the Silicon Valley way of doing business: You either move very quickly and you work hard to improve your product technology, or you get destroyed by some other company.
Since its enactment in the weeks following the September 11 terrorist attacks, the tools in the Patriot Act have been used by law enforcement to stop more than 400 terrorist threats to our families and communities.
I used to hang out with grandfather all the time because he used to pick me up from school sometimes, or drive me to my mother’s, so I’d be with my grandfather a lot. I used to watch him write his sermons.
I’m not really conservative. I’m conservative on certain things. I believe in less government. I believe in fiscal responsibility and all those things that maybe Republicans used to believe in but don’t any more.
I’m a cigar person, I don’t smoke one every day, but I used to smoke them, and I had my own cigar at one time. So, I’m fairly knowledgeable about that.
My mama always used to tell me: ‘If you can’t find somethin’ to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for.’
I have always used e-mail to the greatest extent possible.
I used to think that all great recordings happened at about 3 A.M.
I have the Midas touch, in the way that when I hook up with a project, I feel, not speaking cocky or conceited, but there’s a confidence I have. I learned that from Muhammad Ali; I used to bodyguard him. He taught me about confidence. So when it comes to any job I work, I’m gonna do it good; I’m going to bring it over the top.
I wasn’t very good at studies but was into a lot of extra-curricular activities. I used to play the keyboard and bass guitar in my school band and went on to study keyboard from Trinity College, London.
Why will I not give free service to my customers to get them used to mobile Internet, and to get every small town and village to use it? Everybody does promotions. In the internet world, free is normal.
Statistics are used much like a drunk uses a lamppost: for support, not illumination.
I used to get tired of drinking iced tea, so I’d ask my wife if we had some lemonade, and I would just dump it right in there.
I’m grateful to intelligent people. That doesn’t mean educated. That doesn’t mean intellectual. I mean really intelligent. What black old people used to call ‘mother wit’ means intelligence that you had in your mother’s womb. That’s what you rely on. You know what’s right to do.
When I was a kid, I used to think, ‘Man, if I could ever afford all the ice cream I want to eat, that’s as rich as I ever want to be.’
I used to work in a hospital, in a laboratory doing phlebotomy. I was a vampire.
I never forget the first time I was on ‘Top of the Pops’, my bass player said: ‘You’ve made it!’ I did used to think, when I was younger, that I’d be on there one day.
I used to write jokes with friends. We’d pick a topic and then think out loud, brainstorm.
Independence day is an interesting time to reflect on our strange fealty to institutions that the British left us, including those that were explicitly set up to be used against us.
I was always an introvert as a kid. Then, when I first kind of came out as a human being, I used to be one of those guys who’d go nuts on the dance floor, and people would gather around.
My old life – no amount of getting used to it would have made it right.
The term ‘globalisation‘ is conventionally used to refer to the specific form of investor-rights integration designed by wealth and power, for their own interests.
I used to be a Geico Caveman for live events. I was a corporate mascot. It was the silliest job. It was actually awesome and fun, but it was retarded.
When the Internet first launched, you had all these newspapers saying that the Internet was only used by bad people, to do bad things and what was the point of it. But the Internet changed everything, just like Bitcoin will.
The word must is not to be used to princes.
Every successful social movement in this country’s history has used disruption as a strategy to fight for social change. Whether it was the Boston Tea Party to the sit-ins at lunch counters throughout the South, no change has been won without disruptive action.
I love high heels from the age of 10! Short skirts and then high heels. My classmates used to make fun of me. Like, ‘Ooh, she’s so skinny and she’s wearing high heels.’ But I just wore what I like, and I didn’t care about people’s opinions, the same as I don’t care now.
My grandfather used to write one sentence every day in his journal: ‘I love Anne more than ever today.’ I think that was his meditation – keeping him in his marriage, and also his appreciation for it. It was very touching.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.
I always had a philosophy which I got from my father. He used to say, ‘Listen. God gave to you the gift to play football. This is your gift from God. If you take care of your health, if you are in good shape all the time, with your gift from God no one will stop you, but you must be prepared.’
Governments go to war directly or by proxy without declaring war. Force, or threat of force, are constantly used to dominate other countries.
Personally, I would say the ‘master’ of this whole thing is fate… Whoever is on the playing field is fair game, and it’s up to them to avoid being used.
I remember having a Mike Tyson T-shirt back in the day that I used to sleep in. And there some things that Tyson did along the way that I wasn’t too psyched to associate myself with. But back in the day, just as a fighter, what a dream that was to watch and root for him.
The Soviet Union used the exploitation of workers under capitalism as an agitational issue to subvert Western democracies even as it practiced slave labor at home.
I used to get very angry as I was getting older, because my voice was breaking. So I’ve trained my voice so religiously through my teenage years, because I wanted to be able to hit the notes that those females hit. And I can, which is great.
Every device there is in language is there to be used, if you will. Poets have got to enjoy themselves sometimes, and the twistings and convolutions of words, the inventions and contrivances, are all part of the joy that is part of the painful, voluntary work.
