The album ‘Cheers to the Fall’ is really kind of me breaking out and being like, ‘Listen, I don’t care about criticism, and I don’t care about possibility of failure. I’m going to do it. And if I do fail, well then, here’s to it.’
You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your best and still don’t win, at least you can be satisfied that you’ve tried. If you don’t accept failure as a possibility, you don’t set high goals, you don’t branch out, you don’t try – you don’t take the risk.

In real life we don’t know what’s going to happen next. So how can you be that way on a stage? Being alive to the possibility of not knowingexactly how everything is going to happen next – if you can findplaces to have that happen onstage, it can resonate with an experience of living.

I think 2014 for me is going to give me the possibility to do even bigger things than anyone has done. I want to change the party scene – like, stop just being a DJ with lights, a big LED screen, and oh-look-at-me speakers. There’s way more to a party, and I think everyone knows it. I want to make it special.
There was no theater in my high school. I think even our art program was cut – it was so bad. I didn’t even know that was a possibility in college or in high school; I hadn’t even thought of it. It was pretty negligent. My father has run a bulldozer all of his life, and my mom is in real estate.
There certainly does seem a possibility that the detective story will come to an end, simply because the public will have learnt all the tricks.
Dorothy L. Sayers

It’s extraordinary to hear waves of laughter after you’ve been playing something, night after night, to nothing. That’s why I’m still hooked on acting: the terror of the possibility of things going wrong, the thrill when they go right, and the joy of the company.
I like science fiction and physics, things like that. Planets being sucked into black holes, and the various vortexes that create possibility, and what happens on the other side of the black hole. To me it’s the microcosmic study of the macrocosmic universe in man, and that’s why I’m attracted to it.
You know those people in life who are a bit eccentric and larger than life or a bit odd? That their realm of possibility around them is larger than somebody who’s called normal? What’s normal for an oddball? They could start screaming in public. That’s fun to play.
Birth is the suddenopening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.
I never considered myself a movie star, and I didn’t want to become a movie star, because as soon as you do, you throw away that possibility of playing character. You really do. All of a sudden you’re just an entity, you know?
Modesty means admitting the possibility of error, subsuming the self for the good of the whole, remaining open to surprise and the gifts that only failure can bring. There are many ways to practice it. Try taking up golf. Or making your own bagels. Or raising a teenager.

I’m just a very curiousguy who has a lot of possibility.

I’m not looking at any stage stuff at all. I’m going to give that a break for a while, if not forever, because I’ve done a hugeamount of stage stuff and if the possibility of working in pictures comes along, I’d be silly if I didn’t grab it.
The problem for Rome, then, is how and when the intervention should be done with a sense of the possibility of going too far in limiting the freedom of theologians. This is not an easy time – neither for Rome nor for the theologians.

I’m not an artist, and I want to take risks, and when the possibility of failure occurs, it’s because the idea is all exciting or interesting as a high wire act, and sometimes you’ve got to fall off, just by virtue of the fact that you’re constantly trying to evolve and do new things.
If we are not given the chance to forget, we are also not given the chance to recover our memories, to alter them with time, perspective, and wisdom. Forgetting, we can be ourselves beyond what the past has told us we are; we can evolve. That is the possibility we want from the future.
If there is a sense of reality, there must also be a sense of possibility.

There is a possibility of fresh talent coming to work for the government. Millennials are the most public-spirited generation since the 1960s. There is an opportunity to harness that generation and make government servicecool again.
A lot of amateurs are terrified of going up against a player who is clearly better than they are. They never play their best, because they aren’t comfortable. There’s one surefire way to get over that, and it’s to ask yourself, ‘What if I beat him?’ Imagine the possibility.
I started to have these ideas for films. They were like running images in my head. But I didn’t think I could be a director. I just literally didn’t think it was a possibility. Then I started to suddenly see films of women.

While a case can be made for intelligent design, I can’t figure out why some Christians are so thrilled about that possibility. First of all, it doesn’t prove there’s a God. If anything, intelligent design lends support to some form of pantheism that defines God as immanent within nature.

The most common error made in matters of appearance is the belief that one should disdain the superficial and let the true beauty of one’s soul shine through. If there are places on your body where this is a possibility, you are not attractive – you are leaking.

In fact, I think – our view of this is that while the agreement, the compromise did not achieve the kind of super-sized deficitreduction that we sought, it did end the uncertainty around the perception, the possibility that the United States might default on its obligations for its first time. That was a good thing.
I remember when I first came to Los Angeles being staggered by the range of roles open to me. These were leading parts in shiny new projects, and what always excited me was knowing there was a possibility that I could actually get these parts. I always had the impression that I had a chance.
With ‘The Keep,’ I began with a theory about pitting the isolated disconnection of the gothic realm against present-day hyperconnectedness.

I’m a vegetarian – I think there’s a strong possibility, had I not become a vegetarian, I would not be working now. I became a vegetarian about 25 years ago, and I did it out of concern for animals. But I immediately began having more energy and feeling better.
If you hear Thelonious Monk play a run that goes from the top of the piano, OK, he has opened up the Grand Canyon with that. He’s the river that’s carved this entire space that we call the Grand Canyon. He does that with one run. He lets you know, like, what the possibility of the sound of the piano can do.
I don’t want to say I’m closingthe doors to this possibility completely. It’s just that I’m very passionate about my acting and being a beauty queentakes time. I’d have to prepare physically. I’d have to perfect my walk. And since I’m no beauty queen, this requires a lot of training.
I’m not up on the Internet, but I hear that is a democratic possibility. People can connect with each other. I think people are ready for something, but there is no leadership to offer it to them. People are ready to say, ‘Yes, we are part of a world.’
It’s odd that invoking the possibility of alieninfluences should itself be a sign of madness. I don’t see the need for it to explain history on earth, but I can’t see any reason why the universe shouldn’t be full of life.
I had wanted to act since I was a kid, but I had a lot of shame attached to it. I didn’t tell anyone because I didn’t think it was ever a possibility.
If you know that life is basically going to be horrendously difficult, at best, and all but unlivable at worst, or possibly even unlivable, do you go on? And the choice to go on is the only thing that I think can be called hope. Because if hope isn’t forced to encounter the worst possibility, then it’s a lie.
The economic sense of possibility was so great when I was growing up that my parents had no question that I could do anything I wanted to do, even as a girl. I’ve always believed that the economics of a story intersects with the women’s story – that stuff often happens at the time it happens because of the economy.
I think it’s disingenuous for people to talk in their living rooms about government collapsing, the possibility of totalanarchy, but when someone says it in public, it’s so terrifying they have to persecute that person.
Augustus Sol Invictus
VAR exposes everything. Before we didn’t have the possibility of seeing some things that we now see. The referees are people who can be wrong as well.

I’d like to see that bipartisanship come back that we used to have in the House of Representatives, in the Clinton years. I think there’s a possibility that the voters are going to send the message that everybody running – Congress, the Senate, the presidency – that they want us to come together.
Music is everything. Evidence of the divine. The possibility of man to be good. The possibility of improving our surroundings and expressing ourselves. All of these things are collapsed together in my mind.
