I will say that walking down the street, getting on the subway, taking the elevator, if there’s one or two people and they say, ‘Great job, Mayor,’ that is a real turn-on. I mean, anybody that wouldn’t find that satisfying, rewarding, exciting, thrilling – I think they should see the doctor.

Aleksei Oleinik
However, the radio and national media depend much more on the hype from a good record label, and from a ‘ buzz ‘ about a band, then from just one or two good shows. There are a lot of artists that have a ton of good press going for them, and still do not make it big in the US.

When I started acting, I thought if I got one or two jobs a year I’d be lucky. So yeah, my career has gone so much farther than I ever suspected it would, and as such I feel lucky for everything I get. I feel thankful and grateful.
In football, you never know. There could be one or two injuries that crop up and you may be needed so I always try to prepare myself as though I will be playing in the next game or that I need to be available – that’s my philosophy, even when I’m not 100 per cent.
I’ve always found when I was captain when other people were doing the talking for me, I didn’t need to say as much, and when I did say one or two things, people tended to listen all the more.
You find a lot of junk when you’re searching through lost and tossed photo ephemera, but every so often you’ll find a gem, a wallet-sized masterpiece you’re certain could hang on the wall of a gallery if only someone with a name had taken it. Find one or two of those and you’re hooked for life.
It’s very difficult to find even one or two criteria that you will find in every Internet situation, and the reason is that the technology constrains language in individual ways.
You either have commercial pressure or ideological pressure. I prefer commercial pressure; otherwise, you can be at the mercy of one or two idiots.
I am a huge fan of the Premier League, but do you think it will maintain its attractiveness if the Champions League is only an affair between English clubs and one or two others?
If we go and see hundreds of different market resources, you are seeing hundreds of different points of view, and once in a while, my experience is, you will come across one or two that are just outstanding, and you never would have thought of them.
One of the things that often frustrates me with cookbooks is that there are one or two recipes that are really good and the rest of them are not so great.
In my case, my videos are zero-cost productions. I don’t spend a single penny on them. I take 15 to 16 days to come up with a video and do one or two videos a month. That’s a long time.
Breakaway goals are fun. When you score a quick one in front of the net, it just happens, but during a breakaway, there’s about one or two seconds where you’re not sure.
If you’re very introverted, you prefer to spend much of your time alone, and when you do connect, you’d rather get together with one or two close friends than face a crowd.
When I started wrestling, WWE was a light at the end of the tunnel that no-one thought they could ever get to. Especially being British, only one or two people ever got there.
I think I belong to America’s last generation of novelists. Novelists will come one by one from now on, not in seeming families, and will perhaps write only one or two novels, and let it go at that.
It’s really irritating when you open a book, and 10 pages into it you know that the hero you met on page one or two is gonna come through unscathed, because he’s the hero. This is completely unreal, and I don’t like it.
Some of my team-mates in the Under-18s used to play ‘Call of Duty‘ and they told me I should jump on it. I have played it ever since, for my first one or two years I played it pretty much ever day, I was mad about it.
At Tesla, we don’t go into a community and think we’re going to sell one or two cars.
While there used to be one or two Pops orchestras, now there are all kinds of European orchestras that suddenly look upon this as a golden wand that can enable them to make money recording this music.
Skitch Henderson
Rod Lurie is one of the most wonderful directors I have had the pleasure to work with. He shoots like Clint Eastwood: no fuss. When he gets it, he knows it – one or two takes.
It is dangerous to sit on your laurels, but a lot of the time you only have to add one or two people to the fringes of a winning team to improve it.
My mother told me I was begging her to be an actor when I was four. My father and my grandfather saw at least one or two movies a week; they were film buffs, so I guess it just rubbed off on me. And now it’s kind of become a way of life for me.
In features, we’re languid: we shoot one or two scenes over, like, three days. In TV, the pace is so different. You’re shooting ten scenes a day, going way into the future or way back into the past. It’s complete madness, and I’m just trying to keep up with this really electric pace.
When a nation is over-reliant on one or two commodities like oil or precious minerals, corrupt government ministers and their dodgy associates hoard profits and taxes instead of properly allocating them to schools and hospitals.
Sharks don’t particularly have a great interest in divers. It seemed that in a normal dive, I would jump in the water, and one or two gray reef sharks would swim in and kind of check me out – and then they would keep their distance. So they weren’t particularly threatening or anything to be afraid of.
I was supposed to do only one or two episodes of ‘Big Little Lies,’ but I realized I couldn’t just step away.
In a business that’s driven purely by economics, the fact that one or two unique shows happen to get on and reach a public for a brief time doesn’t constitute a trend.
I’m making a record that’s half stripped down acoustic which is the way I perform a lot and half of it is very produced. It’s really hard to keep music simple but I was trying to keep it simple and focus on one or two instruments and vocals.
It’s not as if we can’t play bounce well or do well only in India. It’s just that in one or two matches,the batting collapses sometimes.
Article II of the articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon was just the simple fact that he talked about and suggested the potential use of the IRS against one or two political opponents.
Once I had asked God for one or two extra inches in height, but instead, he made me as tall as the sky, so high that I could not measure myself… By giving me this height to reach people, he has also given me great responsibilities.
In theater, you sometimes can only do one or two jobs a year because they’re long periods. In film, you can shoot so many. It’s quite interesting.
It's necessary to track characters all the way through

It’s necessary to track characters all the way through an opera. If you’re dealing with more than one or two characters, it’s very easy to forget that the others have lives of their own that feed into the story.
My closet contains plenty of clothes I don’t wear any more, a few I’ve never worn and one or two items I still struggle to believe I ever bought in the first place.
It’s funny, I lived my first 38 years of my life with maybe one or two people ever saying that I looked like Greg Kinnear. As soon as I get into the entertainment industry, now it’s 100 percent of people.
Greg Poehler
I have this magpie instinct for the next glittering object. There are one or two things I know I can’t write about, though: DIY, cricket, automobile repair. I could study it for a lifetime and not produce a word on the carburettor.
It’s always just one or two pieces that a team needs to really change things around.
Representative democracy is a remarkably blunt instrument. Hundreds of issues are bundled together at every election, yet the vote tends to swing on just one or two of them.
My career does not depend on AJ. He’s got four of the belts, but if I’m mandatory for one or two of them and he doesn’t fight me, they will strip him at some point.
I’m in the kitchen five days a week, no matter what, and one or two of those days I’m on the line. Not because I have to be, but because I want to be.
Marc Forgione
If I don’t write down a thought – or an image or a line of poetry – the instant it comes to mind, it vanishes, which explains why I have pens and notebooks in my pants and coat pockets, the car, the bicycle basket, on one or two desks in every room including bathrooms and the kitchen.
Some artists get so comfortable now after even one or two albums and think, ‘I’m the biggest artist in the world,’ but it’s like, yeah, you are for now, but you’ve gotta work so that you’re remembered further, and that’s what I’m trying to do.
Every day, I ate just one or two things. I wouldn’t stuff too much variety in my daily consumption of food. For example, if I ate dal and moong for lunch, I would eat the same for dinner.
I doubt there’s any government in the world that guides itself primarily by strategy or conceptual documents or worldview. Anybody who has the reins of power has to look at practical limitations and tradeoffs – the fact that you can focus at most on one or two things at a time, that resources are limited.
At the age of 16 I was already dreaming of having a baby because I felt myself to be an adult, but my mum forbid it. Right now, I feel like a teenager and I want to have fun for one or two more years before starting a family.
When there’s a great horror movie, people are like, ‘Horror’s back!’ And when there’s a series of not so good ones, ‘Horror’s dead.’ I think it’s all about the quality. When there are one or two good horror movies in a row, people come out interested again.
The process of overbooking is a complicated one. It’s actually minimal. We, on certain flights, overbook by one or two people.
Filibusters have proliferated because under current rules just one or two determined senators can stop the Senate from functioning. Today, the mere threat of a filibuster is enough to stop a vote; senators are rarely asked to pull all-nighters like Jimmy Stewart in ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.’
Long-lived persons have one or two lines which extend through the whole hand; short-lived persons have two lines not extending through the whole hand.
It may be that a majority of superheroes are white males. But that’s because they used to all be white males, except for Wonder Woman and Black Canary and maybe one or two others. Now there are Spanish, Puerto Rican comic book superheroes, black superheroes, and women superheroes.
It does happen sometimes that you aren’t able to understand whether you should go for a particular film or not, and you are left with only one or two choices.
About one or two songs per record is me doing a little bloodletting.
I did ‘Batman v Superman‘ for one or two days.
I think there’s a misconception that I eat everything. The one or two bites that you see me take, that’s it.
When you are playing teams of this quality, you might get one or two good chances in 90 minutes; that is why it is so important that we take them.
My dream, dream acquisition would probably be a Twombly chalkboard. I’ve been fortunate to see one or two in a private context, and I think it’s just sort of quintessentially brilliant, timeless, modern.
One or two great lay downs per tournament will give you a few extra lives while a few well-timed bluffs will give you a ton of extra chips.
Some people don’t like my fiction, because they prefer the nonfiction. But moving around keeps the work fresh for me and, hopefully, for my one or two readers who follow me from book to book!
Every game is decided by one or two plays that teams do or don’t make; you’ve got to make them or else you lose.
Honey Boo Boo is a handful, baby. She says what she wants to say, does what she wants to do. I’ve only seen, like, snippets, like one or two or three, you know, little shots of her, but yeah, she’s a handful, baby.
In order to win you must be prepared to lose sometime. And leave one or two cards showing.
I think 19 years, what I’ve done, you see nowadays people get there with money and so on, but they last one or two years. To be able to have lasted that long, it’s still impressive for me. I had a blast being a Formula 1 driver.
I would film one or two videos a weekend and upload those throughout the week. For a month and a half, I was just constantly filming. There was no downtime. There was always a camera in front of my face.
I understand now why Hillary Clinton always wore navy b

I understand now why Hillary Clinton always wore navy blue pantsuits. Remember, for four years? If you have one or two themes, then you have the same shoes, the same bag. Otherwise, it’s a nightmare.
I know people who have a much better recollection of their childhood than I do. They remember very well when they were a year and a half and two years old. I’ve only one or two daguerreotypes that come to mind.
You have moments where you’re down, but I can be sad for one or two hours, no more. The rest of the time, I have to be happy because the team needs me to be positive. My brain needs it. I need it.
I’d much rather do one or two takes of one thing and then see how it goes.
Rider Strong
All I ever wanted to do was wear Jordans. I think there was only one or two pair I never had.
I want players to think: ‘OK, this has happened now, what is next for me?’ That’s a very big target because what are academies about nowadays? Is it really just to find one or two players? But what happened to the others? I’m very, very interested in that.
If I come to Aspen for one or two nights, I stay at the St. Regis.
It’s fairness to say those who work hard, get up in the morning, cut their clothin other words ‘we can only afford to have one or two children because we don’t earn enough’. They pay their taxes and they want to know that the same kind of decision-making is taking place for those on benefits.
My position is one that brings balance to the team. It’s a position where I’m always playing with one or two touches and I keep the rhythm of the play going.
If you win one or two matches at home on good wickets, on grassy wickets, you’ll develop confidence automatically.
For me, a very chilled out day would be me on my couch or cooking, sitting with one or two friends watching TV or films over a glass of wine.
You look around the world in 2013, and you say, ‘How many prime ministers or presidents are in prison?’ One or two. ‘How many generals or bankers?’ Two or three. ‘But how many writers?’ 850 or so.
Create a garden; bring children to farms for field trips. I think it’s important that parents and teachers get together to do one or two things they can accomplish well – a teaching garden, connecting with farms nearby, weave food into the curriculum.
It’s really great to see the queer landscape really change to include everybody and make the rest of the world understand that we’re not just one or two things. There’s so much about the queer community that needs to be represented.
By and large, I’m in the same boat as other inventors. If we’re lucky, of the 10 or 15 items we do a year, maybe one or two of them wind up with a licensing agreement.
In science, as in art, and, as I believe, in every other sphere of human activity, there may be wisdom in a multitude of counsellors, but it is only in one or two of them.
We are made up of multiple emotions. And it would be unnatural to completely eliminate even one or two or three of those. It’s impossible. You’d become a robot if the emotions weren’t there.
You might be asking too much if you’re looking for one vaccine for every conceivable influenza. If you have one or two that cover the vast majority of isolates, I wouldn’t be ashamed to call that a ‘universal vaccine.’
If they conducted a raid in this room, you’d all be policed up. They’d take all of you to Abu Ghraib and turn you over to the soldiers. Maybe there’s only one or two of you in this group who was a known associate or had any piece of information that they are trying to exploit.
You always get one or two people that aren’t going to be saying nice things. It doesn’t really bother me, but you’re always going to get a few people like that.
Georgia Salpa
Slipstream fiction is usually defined as fiction with a contemporary setting in which story elements are mimetic (that is, seem real) – except for one or two eerie strangenesses. Unlike outright fantasy, these are not explained or integrated into an alternate-reality setting.
I haven’t got one or two people that I aspired to be like.
There’s always been a quality to being a science-fiction reader. Usually, you’re the only one in your class, or there are only one or two in your whole town. You’re always the guy who reads that strange stuff.
Consolidation is so overwhelming. Someone who has one or two stations doesn’t have much clout.
Fred Eychaner
You don’t knock Ray Mercer out with one or two shots. You have to make him quit.
I’ve read crime fiction all my life. A thing that’s bothered me about crime fiction is that it’s generally about one or two people, but there’s not much about society. I want to get away from that particular pattern: a lead, a supporting role and backdrop characters.
Stieg Larsson
I do tend to like movies that challenge me professionally. That’s mostly on a smaller scale, when you have one or two or five actors, and it’s all about the acting and not the camera.
Ayelet Zurer
Even with seemingly simple things like eye color, you can’t tell from my genetic code whether I have blue eyes or not. So it’s naive to think that complex human behaviors, like risk-seeking, are driven by changes in one or two genes.
I’ve followed Tegan and Sara’s music for quite a while, and I’ve been a fan of them and what they do and what they stand for. We’ve run into each other at one or two festivals over the years, and I kind of fanned out on them.
It is necessary to get a lot of men together, for the show of the thing, otherwise the world will not believe. That is the meaning of committees. But the real work must always be done by one or two men.
During one or two summers, as well as part-time during the school year, I worked for a small Canadian company which developed electrical instruments for military planes.
Walter Kohn
The colour of my skin determines what opportunities I h

The colour of my skin determines what opportunities I have; the colour of my skin says there’s only room for one or two of us to be accepted in a certain job; the colour of my skin has dictated everything I’ve done in my whole life.
I’ve said in earlier interviews maybe I should have stayed one or two more years in Holland.
No one is going to keep giving me work because I am Salman Khan’s brother. People may give me one or two films because of Salman but no one can make my career. I have to work towards it.
