You get a painting idea, and you go do that. You get a cinema idea, and you go in to do that. The difference is, even though the paintingsmight take some time to make, with cinema you are booked for a year and a half, minimum.
I want to work with Song Joong Ki sunbae againwho I worked with in ‘Vincenzo.’ I learned so many things from Song Joong-ki sunbae but it’s regrettable that we mainly filmed together only in the second half.
Mike and Heather and I rapped once or twice in New York and then we all wound up on a train together on the way out to Maryland. I think it was about a month and a half from the time we got cast until the time we shot the thing.
What do you think will happen in a forcedmarriage? With an uneducated man, an animal. What would I say, that I am already married? Why would I say it? I never accepted him as my husband in my heart or mind. How I spent a year and a half with him, only I know. And I only did it because of the child.
I put on 15 kg for my role as an amateurwrestler in the first half of the Marathi film Natrang.’ Then, I lost 17 kg for the second half of the film where I play a nachya,’ an effeminatecharacter in traditional Marathi tamasha. The weight gain took 40 days and I lost weight in the next 40 odd days.
I said, ‘Okay, it’s the year 2000, I’m getting a computer and a Palm Pilot.’ I know how to check my e-mail, and I’ve listed some phonenumbers on it. Half the time the battery has gone out so I can’t use it.
‘White Rabbit‘ was mostly done in about two days, the music in about half an hour. The music is a ‘Bolero’ rip-off and the lyrics a rearrangement of ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ You take two spectacularhits and throw them together, and it’s hard to miss.
The future of AEW is Maxwell J. Friedman, without a shadow of a doubt. I am going to be the face of this company. At the tender age of 23… people think I’m great now? They don’t know the half of it. I mean, my career‘s only just begun.
We worked very hard to make the lyrics suit the music. I can’t, like Elton John, for example, compose by lyrics. Elton has a great talent for that. Whatever you give him, including your questions, he composes in half an hour and makes a great song out of it.
One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
Today, if you look at financial systems around the globe, more than half the population of the world – out of six billion people, more than three billion – do not qualify to take out a loan from a bank. This is a shame.
There isn’t a religion on earth that isn’t damaging to the human race because every one of them is patriarchal and every one eliminates more than half of the human race – women. They are all oppressors of women.
Art teaches you the philosophy of life, and if you can’t learn it from art, you can’t learn it at all. It shows you that there is no perfection. There is light, and there is shadow. Everything is in half tint.
There is nothing in this world that I love more than my family. To be able to share the joy of running with them at the Runner‘s World Half Marathon and Running Festival where we can all participate together is as close as you can get to a perfect weekend.
People would read all kinds of reaction into it, but Tracy told me himself that half the time he was just standing very still, trying to look sober and composed. That takes nothing away from him. The fact he got away with it was a tribute to his talent.
Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.
When I was 50 years old, I actually decided to draw up a list of half a dozen things that I really hadn’t done very well, and I was going to make efforts to improve. One of them was skiing, and I really did become a very much better skier.
Around me I saw women overworked and underpaid, doing men’s work at half men’s wages, not because their work was inferior, but because they were women.
Anna Howard Shaw

Acting is half shame, half glory. Shame at exhibiting yourself, glory when you can forget yourself.
I’ll try anything, but the pig testicles in Taiwan were a little much. Eh, it wasn’t half bad. There was this one dish I had there, the translation is, ‘The MonkJumps over the Fence.’ It’s a fish dish with all these spices. It was beautiful, man – it was poetry. It had a whole story.
My father went to work by train every day. It was half an hour’s journey each way, and he would read a paperback in four journeys. After supper, we all sat down to read – it was long before TV, remember!
His name is ‘Mr. Spock.’ And the first view of him can be almost frightening – a face so heavy-lidded and satanic you might almost expect him to have a forked tail. Probably half Martian, he has a slightly reddish complexion and semi-pointed ears.
I think it is about time that equipped women began to take on some of the ethical questions which a male-dominated culture has produced and dissect and analyze them quite to pieces in a serious fashion. It is time that ‘half the human race’ had something to say about the nature of its existence.
Let me tell you something: if you’re on an island for three and a half months and you’re four and a half hours by boat from the neareststore, and there’s nobody but 30 crewmembers on the island, I guarantee that you’d be running around without your clothes on.
Over a three year period, I gave away half of what I had. To be honest, my handsshook as I signed it away. I knew I was taking myself out of the race to be the richest man in the world.

He’s so slow that he takes an hour and a half to watch 60 Minutes.

I have rooms full of little dongly things and don’t want any more. Half the little dongly things I’ve got, I don’t even know what gizmo they’re for. More importantly, half the gizmos I’ve got, I don’t know where their little dongly thing is.
The Indians on board said that thence to Cuba was a voyage in their canoes of a day and a half; these being small dug-outs without a sail. Such are their canoes. I departed thence for Cuba, for by the signs the Indians made of its greatness, and of its gold and pearls, I thought that it must be Cipango.
Half our mistakes in life arise from feeling where we ought to think, and thinking where we ought to feel.
John Churton Collins
The deep, personal material of the latter half of your life is your children. You can write about your parents when they’re gone, but your children are still going to be here, and you’re going to want them to come and visit you in the nursing home.
I was able to lean on people for favors and things to help out because their budget was so low. It was half of what John Travolta’s perkpackage is on a film. Our whole budget was half of what his staff makes on a film.
To be honest, it was slavery. Nobody should have any romantic ideas about working underground. It’s very, very dangerous. You always knew you were living in danger. You were on your hands and knees half the day.
You could be worth $2 billion today and a half a billion tomorrow. It doesn’t take much for this to disappear overnight.
I never lifted a weight in my life. Why am I going to do steroids? That’s not going to do me any good. We didn’t have any weights in our clubhouse. We had one exercise bike and that was for the guy who tweaked his hamstring. And that thing didn’t even work half the time.
I have treated many hundreds of patients. Among those in the second half of life – that is to say, over 35 – there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religiousoutlook on life.
On the second half of ‘Under Pressure,’ I talk about my family, and there are voicemails on my phone from when I was on the road that actually make up the second half of the nine-minute song. I transcribe them and rap them as if I were my sister, my brother, or my father.
If you get half a million, at a certain stage you probably will get 4 million people, if they are able to hear it. The touring thing is unbelievable. It really is amazing from what we did the last tour even to what we are doing now.
Before doing fieldwork in Middle Egypt, I analyzed satelliteimagery to determineexactly where I wanted to go. Within three weeks, I found about 70 sites. If I had approached this as a traditional foot survey, it would have taken me three and a half years.
You know, just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump‘s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. They’re racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it.
My lighter, more superficial side will always steal a march on the deeper side and therefore always win. You can’t imagine how often I’ve tried to push away this Anne, which is only half of what is known as Anne – to beat her down, hide her.
When I was young, I was supposed to study in the afternoon, and 4 – 5:30 P.M. was playtime. The entire day would revolve around that time. We would play anything – kabaddi, cricket. Those one and half hours would feel like 5 minutes.
I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty… you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.
I didn’t really get into golf until I was about 14. My mom and dad were taking lessons from a pro an hour and a half from our farm in Cohuna, Australia. When they got home, I’d ask my mom to explain everything they learned – drills and all.
I see myself as half country boy and half city boy, so I need both to balance me out. I couldn’t spend all of my time in either place.

Ten percent of the big fish still remain. There are still some blue whales. There are still some krill in Antarctica. There are a few oysters in Chesapeake Bay. Half the coral reefs are still in pretty good shape, a jeweled belt around the middle of the planet. There’s still time, but not a lot, to turn things around.
You could hear him, literally, half a mile away when he opened up. He was at his peak then. He was, naturally, dying to get out of the place he was in, and he recorded for us his appeal for pardon to the governor.
I remember when I did the pilot, and I though no network is going to want to do this. How could that happen? A half Chinese guy walking the old west that doesn’t fire one gun and never gets on a horse?
I love golf. But do you know how I got good at golf? Because of Charles Barkley. I was playing with Charles, MichaelJordan and Roy Green, and Charles was talking so much trash. On every shot, he was talking trash. So I left the tournament, and I went and practiced for a year and half.
When I was on a major label I felt obliged to say yes to every interview, tour and whatever else. The label is always telling you, ‘This ain’t going to last,’ so I worked myself half to death. I learnt from that and I like to pace myself now.
Why if I had half a chance, I could make an entire movie using this stock footage. The story opens on these mysterious explosions. Nobody knows what’s causing them, but it’s upsetting all the buffalo. So, the military are called in to solve the mystery.
I’m half Puerto Rican and every Friday we have rice and beans and chicken in my house – so that’s like a very Latin staple. It’s just so comforting. I look forward to every single Friday because I just can’t wait for my rice and beans and chicken.
My father kept me busy from dawn to dusk when I was a kid. When I wasn’t pitchinghay, hauling corn or running a tractor, I was heaving a baseball into his mittbehind the barn… If all the parents in the country followed his rule, juvenile delinquency would be cut in half in a year’s time.
At Rent the Runway, we rent designer clothes. We have a belief set that half of the closet over time is going to move into the cloud, and a portion of what we wear every single day will be comprised of things that we don’t own forever.
That’s been the secret to ‘Gas Monkey‘: Move fast. I opened the first restaurant within a year and a half. Most people wait five years. I always move quickly, and in today’s market, no matter what you’re in, you can recover from a mistakefaster than you can recover from not doing.
Coming from a background of being onstage, you’re onstage for two and a half hours and you’re in it for the whole time no matter what you’re doing. Even if you don’t have a line, you have to stay in it.
Learning, while at school, that the charge for the education of girls was the same as that for boys, and that, when they became teachers, women received only half as much as men for their services, the injustice of this distinction was so apparent.
I wished that I could have been down there because Paul actually wanted me to do the tour with him, but then he realized that it just wouldn’t be right. It wouldn’t be a solo tour anymore. It would look like just half of KISS.
My melons are twisted every bleeding morning at about half past five when I’m up with the little ones!
My wife comes with me on all the movies, but she is not an appendage to a film star or anything like that. She is a completely intertwinedpartner. She is the other half of me. Also, we’re still very much in love with each other. We always have been, we always will be.
My whole damn family was nice. I don’t think I’ve imagined it. It’s true. Maybe it has to do with being brought up as Christian Scientists. Half of my relatives were Readers or Practitioners in the church.
Half the stuff I have done which has been successful would never have been made if it had been shown to focus groups.
The key to success for any woman who wants to have a really serious career and a family is to marry a guy who is going to take at least half the responsibility for the house and kids – and sometimes more than half.

Because I enjoy training, obviously what comes with that is if you haven’t been training, or you’re not feeling like you’re in great shape, then the last thing you want to do, like anyone, is to be seen by millions half naked.
I think I’ve always been a player who’s done better in the second half, who’s done better in the fourth quarter. That’s the fun time to play, when everything you’ve worked for the whole game boils down to those last few possessions.
Cardio is a nice way to start the morning, man. Whether you sit on the bike for half an hour or throw on two jumpers and just sweat, it’s good to get up, get the body active, put on your headphones, and just pedal away.
The half hour between waking and rising has all my life proved propitious to any task which was exercising my invention… It was always when I first opened my eyes that the desired ideas thronged upon me.
We cannot go on as we are with 2.6 million people on incapacity benefit, 500,000 of them are under 35. Are we really saying there are half a million people in this country under 35 who are simply too ill to work? I don’t think that’s right.
When you have good friends you’ve been around, every time they talk, you don’t give them your full attention. You don’t look them in the eye and stop. Half the time, you’re listening, half the time, you are ignoring them.
A half dozen pictures would just about be enough for the life of an artist, for my life.
I’d say I am a fly half. As regards being 12 for England, I’ve not tried to play any different. I guess I’ve been like another 10. Obviously, you do some thingsdifferently, and you might not have your hands on the ball as much – but you’re still in the game and constantlycommunicating.
Often there’s a BA crew, because half the time we stay at the same hotels, especially in Australia. I can remember spendingquite a lot of time with crews around the pool there. They always make themselves known to us.
I love fast breaks, and I love playing full-court basketball, but offensively in the half court, I kind of take my time, let guys cut, and let the defense move. Then, if I have a move, I’ll go. If not, I’ll just hand it off to a teammate.
Part of what’s mesmerizing about ‘The Mechanics of History’ is its physical eloquence – how dancerly it is. The men don’t fall; they float. And when the trampoline restores them to the staircase, they move at a half speed. Cinema, they say, is 24 frames per second.
Immigration is the issue that tells us who is with us and who is against us; there’s no question about it. And it’s very simple to understand why – half of all Latinos over 18 years of age were born outside the United States. It really makes no sense to attack them and criticize them if you want their vote.
One of the best things – and something I’m grateful for every time I walkonto a film set – is my six and a half years on Dawson’s Creek and the experience it afforded me in how to get comfortable with the camera.
I went into rehabDecember 14th, 1996, and got out eight months later? Then I went into a sober living place where I stayed for three months. I’ve been clean for a good year and a half.
I still have my first paycheck. It was just, I think, a dollar or two that I got when I started as a songwriter with BMI, and I had some songs there that I had through the company, and in the mail I got this big old check for, like, a dollar and a half or something. Somebody had recorded one of my songs.
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.
The public doesn’t know what to believe anymore. We don’t know what stories are supposedly true, this idea of ‘fake news.’ We watch it on what I guess you would call a split-focus. It’s half entertainment and half mystery.
When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees. The mind might tell you, ‘I don’t have time.’ But that’s the mind talking to you. Even the busiest person has time for 30 seconds of space.
I’ve been doing this for seven and a half years. I’ve been just bustin’ it, trying to break in as an artist in this business. For me, it’s still just about the work. I get the scripts and I’m all about that. I don’t really even have an idea what that’s going to be like.
My mother was a very beautiful lady, I thought. She was very good to me. I guess – she died when I was nine and a half, but if she had lived, I probably wouldn’t be trying to play guitar. She wanted me to be known, but as something else. Not a guitar player.
If a speculator is correct half of the time, he is hitting a good average. Even being right 3 or 4 times out of 10 should yield a person a fortune if he has the sense to cut his losses quickly on the ventures where he is wrong.
I remember the beginnings of the Kurzweil reading machine. I was one of the first to meet Ray Kurzweil and purchase the reading machine in Boston. To think that the machine was at least two and a half large suitcases at the time, and now you have a camera and it takes a picture and you have sound.
I was always a kid trying to make a buck. I borrowed a dollar from my dad, went to the penny candy store, bought a dollar’s worth of candy, set up my booth, and sold candy for five cents apiece. Ate half my inventory, made $2.50, gave my dad back his dollar.
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.
Half of my life, I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life, I’ve had people staring at me because they think I’m fascinating. Everything neutralises. It’s more of a statement on society and how weird it is.
As a dancer, I’ve always checked my body constantly: ‘Am I having a good day, or am I having a fat day?’ I am probably more critical of myself than anyone else. I am very tiny – 5’1 and a half inches – so there’s nowhere for weight to hide.
America is the big subject of the second half of the 20th century, tackled in one form or another by all the great American male writers. You could make a case for saying that it was the only game in town – from Bellow to Roth to Updike to Richard Ford – America was more or less explicitly the leitmotif.
I’ve been through a lot, both personally and professionally, and the album that I started to record two and a half years ago is a different album from the one that exists today. I even changed the album title. First it was ‘All I Want is Everything,’ and now it’s ‘JumpingTrains.’
