I was born with a black eye. When they pulled me out wi

We went through a whole lot in Washington, from winning 28, 29 games to going to the second round of the playoffs in two years. That was a tough time and a great time as well. Early, like my first year, it was really tough, because to be honest with you, I didn’t want to be there.
When you’re 5 ft. 5 in., have a round Jewish face and wear glasses and refuse to wear contacts, you’re going to get offered certain parts. People thought of me as the nerdy guy, even in non-nerdy parts like ‘Parenthood.’ I didn’t feel the need to change anything I was doing – I embraced it.
It feels that while the young people are trying to fight for a world where there’s equality, everyone’s the same, everyone’s helping each other, we want to take care of the planet… it seems like the people that are ruling and are being presidents right now want to do it the other way round.
People are possibly not spelling ‘Leicester’ correctly everywhere round the globe, but they are at least saying it correctly now.
Shaking's one of the oldest practices known to man. Sta

Golf is a day spent in a round of strenuous idleness.
Years and years ago, Jon Jones was untouchable. You couldn’t win a round against him.
I have been told that… time doesn’t flow in a straight line in my films. It goes round in a circle. Sometimes people comment that the films remind them of Ozu. Maybe that’s right. But in Japan, nobody comments on how time passes in my films. So perhaps that is a different way of thinking.

Think you’re escaping and run into yourself. Longest way round is the shortest way home.

The bad, angry, upset, wounded people are more interesting, so they’re in the news more, but I don’t think they’re in the majority. I have faith that things will change – I mean, just like everybody else, I don’t fix my roof until it’s actually leaking, but eventually, we all get round to doing it.
The parentsjob is to be there for their kids, not the other way round. Troubles between parents need to be talked through with friends and not visited on the children.

Charles Williams
Italy won the world title in 2006 and went out in the group phase in 2010 and 2014. They didn’t make it beyond the first round. You don’t win things because of your history, the shirt, or the names on the teamsheet.
It is good to get an all round experience especially when you have never been on a movie set.
Justin Bartha
I’ve never been able to sit round on my own and play drums, practice in the back room, never been able to. I’ve always played with other musicians. It’s how I play, there’s no joy for me in playing on my own, bashing away. I need a bass, a piano, guitar, whatever, and then I can play.
I probably hung on for a couple of years too long on ‘Scary Go Round.’ I knew I had lost some of my enthusiasm for the characters and the setup, but I wasn’t sure what to do next.

I’m not one of those famous people flying round the world emoting over every catastrophe. I’m too feeble.

Still round the corner there may wait, A new road or a secret gate.
I hate how old people get in my way when I’m swimming. You’re trying to get into the zone and normally, if there’s someone faster than you, you get out of the way, but old people don’t; they’re like, you can go round me. I give a little tut when I pass them.
I can’t bear art that you can walk round and admire. A book should be either a bandit or a rebel or a man in the crowd.
Some people take off recording cycles, but I record year round.
A good essay must have this permanent quality about it; it must draw its curtain round us, but it must be a curtain that shuts us in not out.
But clearly, this is what this is about. It’s about pushing the security bubble out. It’s about rooting out every last guy, so that there’s not even somebody who can fire a single, solitary RPG round from some little qalat out here.
I've always loved life, and I've never known what's ahe

I’ve always loved life, and I’ve never known what’s ahead. I love not knowing what might be round the corner. I love serendipity.
I have a nice smile, pretty lips, and big round cheeks. They help me look like a teenager.
You become a champion by fighting one more round. When things are tough, you fight one more round.

As for myself, you never know what is round the corner in football.
Love may not make the world go round, but I must admit that it makes the ride worthwhile.
Sometimes it takes you two or three seconds to get your head round a joke and laugh at it. With a snot-bubble laugh, it comes instinctivelyalmost in spite of yourself. It’s caused by something silly – like when a little kid says something unexpectedly bizarre.
People make a city, it’s not the other way round.
I have a deep, deep belief that if I tell you I’m going to crack you with a clean shot to the chin inside one minute of the first round and you will be unconscious, well, then that’s what will happen.
I was on ‘AGT,’ and I was like, ‘Well, face it Darci, you are just going to probably get out on the first live round.’
Every place you can find an edge, you should – the free agent market, the undrafted market, the D-League, international players, Americans playing overseas, international players playing in America, the second round. You should be looking for all those opportunities, finding whatever edge you can.
Sam Hinkie
One of the things we urge Y-Combinator companies to do is to have profitability in grasp. If you need to get profitable before your A round of money, you ought to be able to do that.
And I’ve been walking ’round with memories way too long.
Iris Dement
Westminster Abbey, the Tower, a steeple, one church, and then another, presented themselves to our view; and we could now plainly distinguish the high round chimneys on the tops of the houses, which yet seemed to us to form an innumerable number of smaller spires, or steeples.
I’m a very tolerant person and I’m open to new ideas; I’m not an evangelist. I don’t go round telling people, ‘You must try this.’ But I don’t pour scorn on any idea either.
A week of sweeping fogs has passed over and given me a strange sense of exile and desolation. I walk round the island nearly every day, yet I can see nothing anywhere but a mass of wet rock, a strip of surf, and then a tumult of waves.
John Millington Synge
An aria in an opera – Handel’s ‘Ombra mai fu,’ for example – gets along with an incredibly small number of words and ideas and a large amount of variation and repetition. That’s the beauty of it. It’s not taxing to the listener‘s intelligence because if you haven’t heard it the first time round, it’ll come around again.
Tragedy is formed ’round ideas it does not expound, and to understand its history is, in some part, to understand those ideas and their place in the society that produced it.
Every time the market has corrected, since 2008, it’s always been the Fed that’s made the bottom. The Fed has always saved the market either by cutting rates, launching QE, or threatening to launch another round of QE.
Few years ago, I was one of the busiest actresses in Sandalwood, working round the clock. I was so busy that my assistants had a tough time adjusting to my hectic schedule.

Ideally, writers and narrative designers should be included much earlier in the process, where they can be of most benefit. However, although the industry is slowly getting used to fitting narrative professionals into games development, we’re still going through a bit of a ‘square-peg in a round hole’ phase.
I thought if you tapped out, you lost the round. Come to find out, you actually lose the fight.
A graphic designer, you know, who understands ideas and understands that ideas are what makes the world go round, could change the world with a magazine. If one talent could do it right now, and everybody would stop saying it’s the death of magazines.
I had an obsession with underarm shields – pointy ones, round ones, full ones, half ones.
A round or a square product was easily made, except for an oval one, at that time when watch industry mainly relied on hand-made or semi-automatic equipments. It is like the printing and coat film of the mobile phone, which is difficult to realize counterpoint.
Zhou Qunfei
We dance round in a ring and suppose, but the secret sits in the middle and knows.
In boxing and politics, you cannot predict results. You should be ready to go 12 rounds. But if you win in the first round, you should be ready to be the winner quickly.

I felt like I was one of the better point guards in the

I felt like I was one of the better point guards in the draft, maybe the best. But falling out of the first round and being selected in the second round, the number really doesn’t matter where you get drafted – it’s about the fit.
My mom and dad bought me colorful fruit-patterned dresses from Kenzo when I was really young. I wanted to wear them all year round, even in the snow!
My mum was critical in getting me to recognise very early on that although what I was doing was pretty serious, quite selfish, and probably to most people pretty obsessive, there actually was more to life than running quickly twice round a track.
Referendums are designed to get round parliamentary government, and people only demand referendums when they think they can’t get a majority in parliament. Mussolini was the most brilliant practitioner of referendums.
The world only goes round by misunderstanding.
Being a fat kid – FFK, former fat kid – helped round me out, no pun intended. I’m a better adult because I wasn’t treated well as a child.
My goals are for the U.S. team to get to the second round of the World Cup and to win a championship here in the U.S. with my club team the Columbus Crew.
Brian McBride
As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round.
Ben Hogan
People think that athletes have it great, and we do in a lot of regard, but universities make a hell of a lot of money off of players. You don’t get a free education: you work full-time year round for five years for an education you could pay for three times over if you just got your market value.
My great forte in killing buffaloes was to get them circling by riding my horse at the head of the herd and shooting their leaders. Thus the brutes behind were crowded to the left, so that they were soon going round and round.
I maintain a healthy lifestyle all year round for my job, but I definitely try to eat extra clean the night before a shoot and make sure to fit in a workout so that I feel my best.
Training full-on year round is great, and I love to stay in shape and always being ready, but I feel sometimes I don’t have a life.
I’ve been blessed enough to be on a great team, gone to the divisional round five years in a row or whatever it was. That’s special. Not everybody gets an opportunity to do that.
Once I got invited to the Green Room, that’s when I was like, okay, I’m first, I’m getting drafted in the first round. Because they try their best not to let guys sit in there forever.
You come back with an actor for the second time only when you had a successful and creatively satisfying experience the first time round.
If I said I would knock out Sonny Liston in 1 minute and 49 seconds of the first round, that would hurt the gate.
I did a TV show called ‘Unit 1.’ It wasn’t a bad experience, but yes, the first season I didn’t have a good time because I was coming from Nicolas Winding Refn films where the corners were sharp and radical, but now we had round corners.
I did marathons long before they were popular, when people running round the streets were looked at oddly.
If you make ‘PKP’ from the girl’s point of view, it would have been the other way round. The boys would have been wrong for the girls. That wouldn’t have been misogynistic.
While I don’t think President Trump is going to round LGBTQ people up, I do think the concerns from the community about his vision are not only understandable but warranted.
Obviously, throwing leg kicks in the first round is not smart, but it’s something that I can really utilize in the later rounds to both score points and look to finish the fight.
I work hard on New Year‘s eve as I perform at shows. And then round it off by spending a lazy day on January 1st.
When I was little, I wasn’t so little. I had a big old round belly and I was really clumsy, but I was super confident.
Natalie Coughlin
To spend this particular year reading essays to Dennis Robertson as one’s supervisor, and, simultaneously, enjoying membership of the group round Keynes was indeed an intellectual treat.
James Meade
I tried to get us what I thought was the equivalent of a Romo with Quincy Carter in the third round.
I’ve knocked guys out in the 11th round before, late.
I came to Ireland 20 years ago as a student, hitch-hiking round for a week and staying in Dublin.
Greta Scacchi
I don’t think the majority of people – to be quite honest – care. I think they see me as someone who was at one stage of my life in the IRA, but they see me in the round, as someone who was able to make peace.
You can’t choose up sides on a round world.
As newly created P2P businesses disrupt the status quo and compete with established companies, they face the difficulty of fitting a square peg into a round hole when it comes to existing regulatory regimes that don’t contemplate their business models.
My mother wanted me to be a writer, which I have ended up taking a long road round to.
It was the nation and the race dwelling all round the g

It was the nation and the race dwelling all round the globe that had the lion‘s heart. I had the luck to be called upon to give the roar.
I wanted to look like Mike Tyson. But then I started to realize, in a twelve round fight, you must be patient.
Most of us tend toward muscular imbalance. Typically our chest and front shoulder muscles are stronger than our upper back and rear shoulder muscles. As a result, our chins jut out, our shoulders round, and our backs sway.
God made the world round so we would never be able to see too far down the road.
Karen Blixen
The national party’s well-disciplined cadre and election machinery is working round the clock for me.
I live in a Moomin house in East London which I fill with blankets and nice crockery and get people round for dinner. When you travel a lot, you feel rootless and adrift – this is my sanctuary, where I can breathe out.
I spent my childhood clad in 1970s hand-me-downs, primarily from male cousins, which mainly consisted of a selection of beige, brown and orange dungarees. That, combined with a perfectly round pudding-bowl haircut, made me look, on a good day, like a cross between Ann Widdecombe, one of the Flower Pot Men, and a monk.
It’s easier to go from theatre to film than the other way round. In film you’re absolutely loved and cossetted and cared for. In film your director makes your performance. In theatre you’re carrying it all.
I have come to understand and appreciate writers much more recently since I started working on a book last fall. Before that, I thought golf writers got up every morning, played a round of golf, had lunch, showed up for our last three holes and then went to dinner.
Phil Mickelson
I like to have a few staff round for a glass of wine although if I’m feeding people I try and leave my glass alone, as it doesn’t improve my cooking.
Well, I think if more people had more applause, it would make them feel better. I often give my wife a round of applause. If the meal is very good I give her a standing ovation.
I had to make a change. It was no slight on my staff either. We’d all been at Boro for seven years. But certain players had got too familiar with the set-up. I had to turn it round. Terry was the one man I could think of to do it. So I went for him.
Bryan Robson
When the National Theatre was built, it was a public building. If you wander round that building now, there are bits hived off for people who pay more money. That’s happening across the arts.
I expect to see a flat disk up there. I don’t have an agenda. If it’s a round Earth or a ball, I’m going to come down and say, ‘Hey guys, I’m bad. It’s a ball, OK?’
The first thing I learned in boxing is to not get hit. That’s the art of boxing. Execute your opponent without getting hit. In sports school, we were putting our hands behind our backs and having to defend ourselves with our shoulders, by rolling, by moving round the ring, moving out feet.
When you come off that last hole and you’ve just finished a good round of golf, life is good. When you come off that last hole and you messed it up through four or five holes and just played a lousy round of golf, it’s just not a very good day. It just isn’t.
I’ve never changed the way I live. I still walk the streets; I don’t give a damn. And everyone’s very nice to me. But this new idea of being famous for no reason at all? I can’t actually get my head round it.
Cleveland was the only visit I made. I had a good feeling they were going to draft me, but I was still shocked when they jumped up to the second round.
If we fought like the old days, with no time limit, it would be better to work. We only have five minutes to work per round so it’s complicated, especially because everybody knows that my ground game is good.
I am delighted to round off my military life safely, thanks to those who have taken good care of me like my family.
Joo Won
Academics lack perspective. In a debate on whether the world is round, they would argue, ‘No,’ because it’s an oblate spheroid. They suffer from ‘the curse of knowledge’: the inability to imagine what it’s like not to know something that they know.
I am a balladeer. People fall in love to ballads, and that is what makes the world go round.
There are some people who want to throw their arms round you simply because it is Christmas; there are other people who want to strangle you simply because it is Christmas.
Robert Staughton Lynd
I always wander round thinking I’m anonymous. Maybe in my psyche I would like to be. But then you suddenly realise you’re not.
I named it that because more or less each person from the band used to play in other bands and when we left respective bands other members from those bands all sort of changed round. It was a big sort of move thing. I got it from that, I suppose.
Roy Wood
It’s never nice to lose 3-0 and have the ball knocked round you a bit towards the end.
I came from quite a free background living on this small holding farm, getting on my bike and running round the field and going on little adventures and always felt like a very independent person.
Brows that are too round tend to elongate the face making eyes look droopy and tired.
I thought not getting picked in the first round was the end of the world.
Where I grew up, there was only one CD shop, and I didn’t really like school, so we’d register, then bunk off, and we would be round my mate‘s house making drum-and-bass mix tapes.
The only way round is through.
I don't want a lot of people nosing round my studio and

I don’t want a lot of people nosing round my studio and bothering me. I don’t want to see them at all. Let the dealers have all that bother.
Winslow Homer
I used to have a blankie, and when my mom had to wash it, I would sit outside the dryer and watch it go round and round, and cry.
Fashion goes round in circles.
Particularly now with social media, you only need to turn round and someone will have a camera in your face and occasionally someone will be talking to you at the bar, asking you to pose for a picture, and someone will say, ‘They’re videoing this.’ They’re videoing you at the bar!
Sometimes, I put a couple of mannequins on the edge of the box and do these things called bounce balls. You pass against it, and it comes back; you take a couple of touches ’round the mannequins and shoot.
Above all, TRIBES is fun, and even kind of sexy… in that every round features an Opportunity for Reproduction, which is the main aim of the game, as it is in most of Nature.
A neighbour saw me, came round, and said I could earn another tenner if I did their garden. It wasn’t long before I was doing everyone’s gardens in the area and had my own little business. It got to the point where I even started employing one of my mates, who I paid 4 an hour.
There’s never been a southpaw fighter to make it five rounds with me. These are championship fights, and most of them can’t even make it out of the normal rounds. Fought Chael Sonnen, TKOed him in round one. Fought Vitor Belfort. He made it to round four when I ended up submitting him.
Once, when I was 14 I thought easily the most glamorous thing was white eyeliner inside the eye and then heavy lip liner round the mouth. I think I looked repellent.
If baseball was all year round, I’d play all year round.
My friend was interning at the Miss India office and asked me to go for an audition. I just wanted to clear one basic round to show it to my friends. ‘I’m in this mind space, and I can do this, losers.’ I cleared the first round, and then I wanted to do more.
I was kind of lucky because I was fit and healthy when I was in my teens, got a bit wild in my 20s, and stopped round about my 30s.
Davinia Taylor
Take, if you must, this little bag of dreams, Unloose the cord, and they will wrap you round.
Another night I dreamed I heard heavenly music sounding in my ears, and a flock of sheep was gathering round it. When the music ceased, the sheep leaped for joy, and ran together, shaking their heads; and one shook his head almost off, and seemed to have nothing but ears.
Joanna Southcott
Food makes me happy. Make me work round the clock, but just feed me first!
Everyone loves a love story, and everyone wants to know who’s getting on with who, it’s what makes the world go round.
I take time to get close to, and I don’t immediately throw my arms round someone.
All things come round to him who will but wait.
During my first round of law school applications, I didn’t even apply to Yale, Harvard, or Stanford – the mystical ‘top three’ schools. I didn’t think I had a chance at those places. More important, I didn’t think it mattered; all lawyers get good jobs, I assumed.
Some guys have trouble sleeping the night before an important round. I never have. Invariably, I sleep longer and better, and have more dreams, when I’m in contention and feeling pressure.
I remember the first time I fought somebody with a name and that was Tito Ortiz. I didn’t start fighting until like the second round because I was like, ‘Oh my God, that’s Tito Ortiz. That’s Tito Ortiz from TV. Look how big his head is, damn.’
I got drafted by the Titans in the sixth round. So I got drafted, but not by much. There’s nothing guaranteed for a sixth-round draft pick.
When you turn round games, that’s the best feeling you have in games.
I have a very round mound of rebound thing going on. I was a surprisingly good shooter, too. If I could have any job in sports, though, I’d want to be playing first base for the Yankees.
Omar Benson Miller
I remember going round to my friends’ houses and asking them to ask their mum and dad if I could stay for dinner because I wasn’t going to get fed.
No one’s body is up for comment. No matter how small, how curvy, how round, how flat. If you love you, then I love you.
When I tell my husband stories of how I’ve grown up, he can’t relate to it. I like it though, yeah, it’s a badge of honour. You’re from Up North, you’ve got to be a tiny bit rough round the edges. That’s the charm!
Easy reading is damn hard writing. But if it’s right, it’s easy. It’s the other way round, too. If it’s slovenly written, then it’s hard to read. It doesn’t give the reader what the careful writer can give the reader.
I have always been too round to do fashion shows.
You have to find what makes you stable in the storm. Then, no matter what’s happening round you, no matter what the hype or the publicity, you can still manage to make leaps in your work as an artist.
I knew after being drafted in the 57th round that I would be swiftly replaced if I wasn’t able to play through a considerable amount of pain in the minor leagues, and ultimately until I established myself as a productive, stable member of MLB.
I have a nine handicap in golf - I can always find time

I have a nine handicap in golf – I can always find time for a round – and I’m on my treadmill and cross-trainer every day.
I mean one of the things about being alone is that you’ve no people to define yourself off, I mean, people are like all-round mirrors, because let’s face it, we don’t often see ourselves all round in a mirror anyway, do we.
Diana Wynne Jones
Everybody wants to be a first round pick.
Donte DiVincenzo
Even though Bandos is one of the biggest islands in the Maldives, it only takes 20 minutes to walk round. All it has are some chalets and a little harbour centre with three restaurants and a bar. The food is magnificent.
I started in journalism: my first magazine, I developed when I was 10. I sent it round to the neighbors. I also sent it to the Queen of England.
Some people, like myself, rock colored contacts, crazy hair, and black all year round.
I do think culture is an argument, and that was part of the way I was brought up. People at a social occasion in Ireland will start shouting and arguing. When the Yeats family lived in Bedford Park, they had to go round to the neighbours to say, ‘You might think we are fighting, but this is the way we talk to each other.’
I like to make a tour round the pitch before games to look at the architecture, the colours in the stadium, the sky, to feel the atmosphere growing.
You never came home for lunch: you just stayed doing, playing, having fun, surfing, running round.
I can be a bit extreme. I’ll spend too much time running round the park, doing yoga and drinking green tea. I can get a bit obsessive. I have to rein it in sometimes.
The trouble with baseball is that it is not played the year round.
Gaylord Perry
I used to go round to my granddad’s house on a Saturday morning, and we’d sit and eat our porridge and watch re-runs of ‘Steptoe and Son’ on BBC Two. I thought it was hilarious – and Rag ‘N’ Bone Man sounded like a blues name to me. It reminded me of people like Sonny Boy Williamson and Big Mama Thornton.
I couldn’t care less if I make a fourth-round U.S. Open or I lose first round. To me, everything is the same.
Women make the world go round.
I have a wonderful flat in Southampton and sometimes after games I have friends and family round and we have very nice evenings – especially after wins.
Supermarkets didn’t even want to talk to me about how much food they were wasting. I’d been round the back. I’d seen bins full of food being locked and then trucked off to landfill sites, and I thought, surely there is something more sensible to do with food than waste it.
There was a year between school and getting going as an actor when I basically just watched films. Video shops were the new thing, and there was a good one round the corner and me and my brother just watched everything, from the horror to the European art-house.
I love ‘Another Round.’ It’s Heben Nigatu and Tracy Clayton’s podcast that’s through BuzzFeed, and they’re real funny and really themselves. And I like it because it’s very funny, but it’s outside the realm of comedians talking about comedy.
As a boy, I’d always had an interest in theater. But the idea at my school was that drama and music were to round out the man. It wasn’t what one did for a living. I got over that.
I started working myself from about 14, really, so I wasn’t a burden on my family. I did a paper round and a milk round. When I was 15 or 16, I worked in a supermarket on Saturdays stacking shelves, and then every summer I temped, right through university until my working days started.
Women have seldom sufficient employment to silence their feelings; a round of little cares, or vain pursuits frittering away all strength of mind and organs, they become naturally only objects of sense.
One should live with history round one.
If you get to No 1, people say, ‘But you didn’t win a Grand Slam.’ You cannot win, because you can say the same the other way round. In my opinion, both are really important. If you want to finish your career really happy with what you did, you have to win both.
You see it with Brexit, you see it in Donald Trump’s election, you see it with the fact that neither of the main parties ended up in the final round of the French presidential election, you see it with the Italian referendum being defeated, you see it in a lot of ways – the political revolution.
I knocked a lot of guys out from the seventh round on – so if I gave up, I would never have achieved what I did. There was no giving up. It’s weak to give up. The easiest thing in the world is to quit.
Micky Ward
When you walk the track and you see a corner and realise you were going round it at 160mph, you wonder who could be so stupid to take a corner at that speed. But in the car, you don’t even think about that.
It’s a round ball and a round bat, and you got to hit it square.
I showed my chin was fine when I fought Tim Sylvia in the Philippines, when our fight was a no contest. He landed a good straight right hand at the end of the first round and I was fine. I survived and knocked him out.
With boxing, sometimes you’ll watch the first three rounds, then you’ll change the channel and turn it back in the 10th round. With MMA, you have to watch all 15 minutes. You’ll want to watch every second.
I would like you all to give me a round of applause as I have not crashed my car in over 15 months.
I think I was maybe a ned. I don’t know. I had a trakkie, a cap and got into trouble when I was younger and I don’t remember other neds round about me, so I suppose I must have been one. But a thinking ned, an intelligent ned.
My agent and I usually have a steak-and-wine dinner on

My agent and I usually have a steak-and-wine dinner on Wednesdays before tournaments. It’s a good source of protein for the night before, and it helps me sleep before the opening round.
It takes all kinds to make the world go ’round. If everyone was straight-laced and uptight, it would sure be a drag. We need a little tug of war in society.
I’m conscious of a series of circles working its way through my life. And at this particular moment I have come round to the beginning of my writing cycle. It begins with poetry. There’s hardly a day that goes past on which I don’t write poetry.
The important thing for me was that the World Cup should travel round the world.
Sepp Blatter
I eat breakfast pretty much ’round the clock – muffins in the morning, scones for lunch, cereal at night – which may be odd but is also oddly satisfying, if only because the choice is my own.
And I tell my audience, you know, give the real stars a round of applause. Because without them I’m nobody. So I learned so much from people like that.
Little Milton
The quarter finals is always an exciting round because you know you’re one match away from that one table situation: where the magic really starts to happen at the Crucible and where it starts to come into its own.
You know, been on non-guaranteed deals, been a second round pick, been kinda, sorta viewed as a first round pick.
It’s a very slippery slope when you have a world champion boxer fighting an MMA guy for the sake of money, and he can’t knock him out in the first round. He has to make sure he carries him a little bit.
I live by the sea in Australia and the weather of course is glorious all year round.
Anna Torv
Oh, I love Nottingham. I know some people go, ‘Oh God, there’s not much going off there,’ but I like staying in and going round to my mum and dad’s for a Sunday roast.
Vicky McClure
I don’t think I’m ever surprised at how high the quarterbacks go. There could be a lot of teams that often times don’t have a lot of first-round grades on guys that are going in the first round, and that’s just the nature of the business.
A man walks on through life – with the external call ringing in his ears but with no response stirring in his heart, and then suddenly, without any warning, the Spirit taps him on the shoulder. What happens? He turns ’round. The word ‘repentancemeansturning ’round.’ He repents and believes and is saved.
I know Los Angeles has it better than Chicago when it comes to produce year round!
Rick Bayless
In boxing, you get hit, it’s painful, then you sit on the stool when the adrenaline is gone and you feel that pain. And then you fight the next round.
When Beverly and I got together in 1992, and I moved to be with her in the little round house she’d built in the middle of 20 acres of woods near Amity, I found myself immersed in a natural setting that I responded to with all my being.
I’ve never really been star struck. I was a little bit taken aback when I was doing a chat show recently and I was sat in the make-up chair chatting to a guy say next to me but I couldn’t look round and see who it was, it was only when I got up I realised it had been Bryan Adams I’d been talking to!
Richard Fleeshman
At the beginning of my career I was going through a really weird phase of dressing in boys clothes. I would only wear one American Apparel T-shirt and shorts and brogues the whole year round. Not the same T-shirt, obviously, but one style of American Apparel T-shirt. I think I was going through a tomboy stage.
I grew up in a little town called Uckfield, and there’s not much to do – so we used to fight a lot. I was never in serious trouble, but we used to have the local bobby round the house saying, ‘Rory’s been up to this again.’
I can say, ‘right, I will stop this kid in round five.’ If I am good enough to do that then fair enough. I don’t gamble but my brothers and my friends, they did quite well off it.
I’ve been criticized my whole career. When I got drafted in the second round in the green room, they said I wouldn’t even make it in the N.B.A.
Rashard Lewis
I just think knowledge makes the world go ’round, man. So, if that makes me a geek, then cool.
Vatican II and the Space/Information Age began in the same eye blink of history, with John XXIII’s opening speech of Vatican II on Oct. 11, 1962, following John F. Kennedy’s call for a round trip to the moon a month earlier.
I went into the ‘Idol‘ audition with no expectations; that’s just the kind of person I am. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t hurt so badly, you know? But once I made it past the first round, and the second, and third – I started to realize, ‘Maybe my goals and dreams really are attainable.’
There is nothing that compares to an unexpected round of applause.
There’s always another idea round the corner that I want to do. So while I can, it’s important to do them, because there will come a time when I can’t.
If you drop a line in the theatre, you can usually find a way round it. But you can’t do that as easily on television – you’re in the hands of too many people.
The message I take all round the world is Britain is open for business.
If you’re a friend or a relative of George Herbert Walker Bush, Prez 41, or George W. Bush, Prez 43, or any other Bushes, then you know an 18-hole round of golf shouldn’t take more than three hours out of your day – there are other important things to do.
Dickens, as you know, never got round to starting his home page.
He had one uniform practice, and a very bad one it was, during the time of family worship, and just three or four seconds before the conclusion of the prayer, he started to his feet, and ran barking round the apartment like a crazed beast.
James Hogg
Grades can matter, especially for those students and pa

Grades can matter, especially for those students and parents who live for the next round of applications to graduate or professional schools. But there’s a problem with the grade emphasis. Math or science graduates earn more than students majoring in the humanities.
In my opinion, the Doha Round is the most important thing that we can do to reduce inequalities, create opportunities, and develop the poorest countries, face up to the struggle against terrorism and strengthen democracy.
We in the Negro leagues felt like we were contributing something to baseball, too, when we were playing. We played with a round ball, and we played with a round bat. And we wore baseball uniforms, and we thought that we were making a contribution to baseball. We loved the game, and we liked to play it.
Buck Leonard
I’ve got six solo albums. I’ve been round the world three times. I don’t even think about the Roses.
Measured in time of transport and communication, the whole round globe is now smaller than a small European country was a hundred years ago.
Once again the mastermind was Lionel Curtis, and the earlier Round Table Groups and Institutes of International Affairs were used as nuclei for the new network.
It is necessary above all that the citizens, who have rallied round the constitution, should be assured that the rights it guarantees will be respected with such a scrupulous fidelity as will reduce to despair its enemies, hidden or avowed.
I watch a lot of Disney films and whenever one of my little nieces is round I’ll slap on ‘Cinderella‘ or ‘Hercules‘ and use them as an excuse to watch it.
I’ll be honest – my buddies are always going round saying, ‘Put a shirt on. Jeez,’ but I grew up on the beach. I grew up surfing. I grew up outdoors. I’ve sort of always liked being shirtless.
It’s true that I am not from the south and I have a certain reserve. I take time to get close to, and I don’t immediately throw my arms round someone. But it is more a question of style.
I believe that every single game in the Playoffs, round 1 to Eastern Conference Finals, every single game is a different game.
In the whole round of human affairs little is so fatal to peace as misunderstanding.
Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
People question what I thought of Oxford. Students used to talk about the ‘Oxford bubble’ because the place can make you feel cut off from the rest of the world. I would forget there were places like London that were not centred round libraries and essays.
My father worked in agriculture, and I got to travel round remote rural areas with him and see a bit of the landscape and people.
Giles Foden
I am not sure how much Dudley will feature just because of the grand scale of the film and the fact that there are so many stories and characters to tie up. I haven’t seen the film yet but I think it will be a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but it was nice just to round it off and give it some closure.
Harry Melling
They drafted me in the third round to come play receiver, return some kicks and that’s my job. The Olympics are behind me and I’m just looking forward to helping the Bills.
I don’t want to sound like Catherine Cookson but I’ve worked since I was eight, with a paper round and in a fruit and veg shop. Taking a pay cut won’t demotivate me, not at all. It’s not about money in the first place. It’s about the job.
I’m usually bikini-ready all year round.
I don’t like hawking ’round other people’s memories. That wasn’t part of the deal when I was born.
Hugo Pratt
The most I ever played was 12 or 13 tournaments. Now they’re talking about almost 20, and it’s all year round, playing through the summer as well.
My parents always wonder why I work round the clock and I never had an answer, until one day I came across a street full of Oyos. I saw so many families and friends on holiday there. This made me happy – life had come full circle in that moment!
We work the full year round to make 10 or 12 episodes, and ‘The Good Wife‘ makes, like, 26 in that time or something, which I can’t believe. I don’t know how they do it.
In Naples, Fla., I met a self-made man, a multimillionaire, whose round penthouse apartment is home to Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Henry Moore, and Mickey Mantle. He had purchased the most coveted items auctioned by the Mantle family at Madison Square Garden in December 2003.
I was in the spot where you work your butt off to get to: the fourth round of the U.S. Open against Roger Federer on Labor Day. That’s why you work so hard in this game and sacrifice so much – to get to that position.
Mankind progresses not smoothly, as by a sliding carpet ascent, but by rugged steps broken by gaps. He halts long on one stage before taking the next. Often he remains stationary, unable to form resolution to step forward – sometimes even has turned round and retrograded.
Kids used to come round to my house, and I’d force them to do a play in the bay windows of my house and get all the mums and dads to sit and watch. I’d write the programme, write the play and be the star.
James Norton
Throughout the course of the day, I’ll have a GoMacro bar here and there, I’ll have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I’ll have another protein drink, I’ll have at least two protein drinks on the golf course, at every six holes, and then after the round I’ll have one.
At the age of eight, I auditioned for ‘The Sound of Music’ and made it through to the third round, where we all stood in a row like the Von Trapp family and had to sing.
You almost need somebody to say, look, another day, in boxing that happens all the time. The coaches will say I’ll give you one more round, if it looks the same I’m not going to allow you to keep going out and taking damage.
If you leave me waiting ’round for hours and then call on me to do something, I need to be able to do it straight away. That’s my job, like your job is to do what you do.
When steam first began to pump and wheels go round at so many revolutions per minute, what are called business habits were intended to make the life of man run in harmony with the steam engine, and his movement rival the train in punctuality.
Every actor turns everything round to their character.

Every actor turns everything round to their character.
I’m always trying to slip out of those labels everyone tries to put round your neck. We all have multiple selves.
It strikes me that golf’s great virtue is that it gets you out of the house, away from everyday bothers, away from the endless round of looking for this, that and the other.
You can see, even the best players, they can lose in the first round.
In its original version, the FTAA was meant to be a special carve-out for Washington and Wall Street as global ‘free tradeadvanced under the umbrella of the Doha round of the WTO.
Boxing has parallels with stand-up, because you’re on your own. If a boxer gets knocked out in the first round, it’s humiliating.
Rob Beckett
If I had my way there would be a philosopher sitting round the table on every committee and in every boardroom.
The essence of life is the smile of round female bottoms, under the shadow of cosmic boredom.
Guy de Maupassant
My siblings and I had to earn our own pocket money so from the age of about 10 I had a job. I did a paper round, helped with the farmer‘s delivery at the weekend, cut hedges for neighbours and worked on a market stall. Then I’d go and buy a record with my hard-won money.
Turn the preparing of food into a communal affair by enlisting others to help with the chopping, grating, stirring, simmering, tasting and seasoning. When the cooking is finished, eat together round the table with the electronic gadgets switched off so you can savor the food and let the conversation flow.
People didn’t think Christian Ponder would get picked in the first or second round, but they don’t understand how prepared he was for the pro game through the FSU coaching staff.
In the early Nineties, after my first round of financial problems, I started a studio in Kensal Road in London right at the time when no record company wanted to hear anything from Leo Sayer.
I learned that round four of a major is really not too much different than rounds one through three. I didn’t keep to my game plan in the ’08 U.S. Women’s Open for the final round. That won’t happen again!
I used to say I’m not a business. I’m not! But I’ve had to come round to it, to acknowledge that you had to be an organisation and had to have a business dimension in order to do your passion.
There’s hope for everyone. That’s what makes the world go round.
I was always an odd girl; I managed to alienate a lot of people. I felt like a square peg in a round hole in the music industry and created a lot of neurosis for myself.
I lost in the second round of the French Open and had 10 days off. I went to the Hard Rock Cafe. It was exciting to be away from my parents, to stay in a hotel. Hotels at 17 meant freedom.
The body should be reconfigured by the clothes, never again the other way round.
If I don’t get food in my mouth, I’m still happy. If my pants are round my ankles, as long as I don’t get arrested for indecent exposure, I’m happy. I’m worried about keeping my hair, not how it’s combed.
Banks operate like a man who either wears his trousers round his chest, stifling breathing, as now, or round his ankles, exposing his assets. We want their trousers tied round their middle: steady lending growth; particularly to productive British business, especially small scale enterprise.
Somehow, it is hard to dislike a man once you have played a round of golf with him.
It wouldn’t be fair to drag a child round the world, touring.
Samantha Fox
For ‘Iron Man’ I had to improv with Robert Downey Jr., which is like going up against LeBron in basketball. At one point he stopped and said, ‘Can we give a round of applause to Olivia, because she’s rocking it right now.’
Why crown your own rack of pork when a butcher could do it for you? To start, it’s way easier to brine two individual racks than a giant round crown (and yes, you definitely want to brine the meat).
To be honest with you, there’s nothing that bores me more than sitting around with a bunch of actors talking shop. I love actors and I’ve got friends that are actors. They’re interesting people. But for some reason, usually when it comes round to talking shop, there’s a part of me that doesn’t like it.
My mother-in-law has come round to our house at Christmas seven years running. This year we’re having a change. We’re going to let her in.
I dropped Nascimento in the first round, but he came back, and I had to dig really deep because he was gaining the whole time. He ruptured my left ear drum with a right hand in the fifth round, which caused a few hearing problems, but I was able to overcome it.
For more than 40 years, I have advocated the creation of a ’round the clock’ community. This would mean, at the least, housing, schools and shops of various kinds alongside the commercial buildings. That kind of community had appeared in lower Manhattan in nascent form before Sept. 11, 2001.
The world is round so that friendship may encircle it.
Software makes the world go round.
Old women especially are invisible. I have been to parties where no one knows who I am, so I am ignored until I introduce myself to someone picked at random. Immediately, word gets round, and I am surrounded by people who tell me they are my biggest fans.
Freddie obviously knew he was ill long before we did. W

Freddie obviously knew he was ill long before we did. We knew there was something wrong, but we didn’t know what it was. He told us eventually. We didnt want to believe it was true. But we all stuck round him, formed a circle, and gave him support.
I have worked with this red all over the world – in Japan, California, France, Britain, Australia – a vein running round the earth. It has taught me about the flow, energy and life that connects one place with another.
There was a time when a man was so convinced that the world was round that he was determined to prove it.
Ernest Holmes
My father had slowed down playing a little… I was ’round 10 or 12 years old. Every time he put his guitar down, I pick it up.
In our national mythology, we seem to include only one-way migrations to the great capitol cities. The journey from the small Wisconsin town or Minnesota city to Chicago or New York or Los Angeles. Certainly for some people, that journey is a round trip.
All of a sudden, it wasn’t quite good enough to make the fourth round of a Grand Slam, when my whole life before that it was an incredible achievement and something that I had only done a couple of times.
What we call barbecuing in this country is actually direct grilling. In many countries, it also means cooking in an enclosed box with a heat source, ideally wood, all year round.
I’m just never getting there. I’m getting round to it. I’m beginning to understand it a bit more.
Mark E. Smith
OK, the wonderful thing about soccer is, a football is a perfectly round object, and it doesn’t make mistakes. The player using it makes mistakes. And the more you use it, the less mistakes you make.
Craig Johnston
An incident that left an impression on me was the 1999 sub-junior national boxing championship held in Calcutta. I had trained extremely hard to get there but got kicked out in the first round itself. ‘If others can win, why can’t you?’ I repeatedly asked myself.
When you become a world champion and you defend your title for five or six years, and you have fifteen defences of your title, and you round up most of the other belts – and you feel you’re the best of your generation at the time – nobody can take that away from you.
Innovation makes the world go round. It brings prosperity and freedom.
Robert Metcalfe
I still don’t know what the ‘ideal‘ woman is. Waifs will always be in demand because it’s a lot easier to design for straight up and down rather than round curves. This is the reality, unfortunately.
I always say that cinema reflects life, not the other way round.
I had a nice, pert nose but a plain round face and a mop of curly brown hair. That was not the photograph of a successful model.
At heart I’ve always been a music fan. That part of me has never changed since I was a little kid, sitting in a room watching a record go round, looking at the colour of the labels.
The mother-in-law came round last week. It was absolutely pouring down. So I opened the door and I saw her there and I said, ‘Mother, don’t just stand there in the rain. Go home.’
God may not play dice but he enjoys a good round of Trivial Pursuit every now and again.
Silicon Valley today is populated mostly by people who would consider themselves winners of the traditional race. This causes the exclusion of the voices that are vital to a round, robust society. It’s beyond gentrification.
You can’t take sides when you know the earth is round.
Patricia Sun
When I was born, I was effectively dead. Weird, I know. The doctors couldn’t get any reaction from me, so I had to be brought round, and although it seemed like I was okay, there were underlying problems.
A narrow compass! and yet there Dwelt all that ‘s good, and all that ‘s fair; Give me but what this riband bound, Take all the rest the sun goes round.
Edmund Waller
People can’t get their heads round the idea of a species surviving; you know, they’re more concerned about how you treat a donkey in Sicily or something.
Prince Philip
There is always anxiety before a competition and it was no different for me today. It was only in the third round, with about 40 targets left, that I realised I could match the world record score.
Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore
They say behind every great man is a great woman, but I think it works the other way round as well.
We have qualified for the 2010 World Cup qualification final round with young players and we will be able to advance in the competitions with the same players.
Diet-wise, I practice intermittent fasting, keeping me alert, as the body is using up its energy stores. It keeps my diet in check, so I’m just on black coffee and water, maybe a fruit round 1 P. M.
Because Pilates requires you to press your abs toward your spine, you don’t want to allow your lower belly to round and press out as air comes into your lungs. You also don’t want that abdominal lock to force you to breathe shallowly. To breathe correctly, you must expand your rib cage, primarily through your midback.
I had a paper round and every night I would put the dinner on before Mum came home from work. I was capable because I had to be.
There were a lot of publishers that I loved, so the book went to auction. An auction is where you sit nervously by your phone and eat potato chips for two days waiting for your agent to text you numbers of the highest bid for each round. I ultimately went with Dervla Kelly at Rodale Books.
I’m not a dieter. I have the palate of a 7-year-old boy, although I’m working on it. I order off the kids’ menu! I’m working hard to eat more fruit and veggies and round it all out, but I’m a big pretzels and Diet Coke kind of girl.
I wanted to play Super 15. I wanted to develop some mat

I wanted to play Super 15. I wanted to develop some maturity, some leadership and to work on my skill set. Also I want to have played all round the world.
Both my parents were keen golfers and Dad was such a creature of habit that he didn’t see much of me at Ayr United because he always played a round on Saturdays. He was an old-school parent of his time and I’ve no complaints.
We need to think out of the box rather than just going round and round, beating ourselves up about numbers.
I’m not a businessman. I could pack it in, but I like work. I don’t want to sound like Catherine Cookson, but I’ve worked since I was eight, with a paper round and in a fruit and veg shop.
At night, I read. I read for two hours. I just finished a marvelous book by Louise Erdrich, ‘The Round House.’ But mostly I read 20th-century history and biography. I lived then. I was either a child or at school or at work.
I know that I’m going to have to work hard, keep working hard, and not because of this victory think, ‘I’m back.’ I don’t think like that. I’ll definitely work hard. Things are not going to be easy. I might lose first round next week. You never know.
Kim Clijsters
My left foot is not the strongest but I can be clever by going round somebody or using the right side of my foot.
I take the family shopping round. The markets of the world.
Edgar Guest
Brazil – they’re so good it’s like they are running round the pitch playing with themselves.
All my life, I have loved balloons – all balloons – the heavy English sort, immense and round, that have to be pushed about, and the gay, light, gas-filled French ones that soar into the air the moment you let go of them.
DC is good all round. He pushes the pace, makes you think what you’re doing, makes you uncomfortable.
One win, and you’re on top of the world. Lose in the first round of the next tournament: you’re back to reality.
I grew up doing theatre, where I was jumping in and out of plays, year round.
Well, I guess I needed this tough first round to really put me into that tournament, to really erase what happened at Indian Wells, which is now the case, you know.
Amelie Mauresmo
I wasn’t ready to get drafted in the first round.
My dad was always busy. You would pop round for a cup of tea, and within minutes you would see him walking past with a step-ladder. He was always fixing things.
I loved Ingrid Bergman. I sat and saw her on the stage in a theater in the round.
Paris presents one incessant round of amusement & dissipation but very little, I believe – even for its inhabitants of that society – which interests the heart. Every day, you may see something new, magnificent & beautiful; every night, you may see a spectacle which astonishes & enchants the imagination.
We are still confident as a team that we will make it through to the final Cup qualifying round.
One step outside the gate, and we are among the sand-hills that stretch for miles and miles round Vera Cruz.
Edward Burnett Tylor
I’ve still got a small fitness and conditioning business where I travel round the world doing stuff for individuals and corporations, mainly fitness training.
I travelled round the world giving demonstrations of my talents. In every country, I performed for students, professors, teachers, bankers, accountants, and even laymen who knew very little, or nothing at all, about mathematics.
Shakuntala Devi
My voice is so recognisable. I’m like a foghorn walking round shops on my phone.
I am very harsh on myself. I can point out a list. My nose is very strange. I have a very round face. I sound so ungrateful. Obviously I’m being hard on myself. Whether it’s body dysmorphia, or whatever it is, I can always find something wrong.
I’ve always believed that it’s the film that chooses the actor and not the other way round.
Every round I have three little targets. Maybe it is just ‘talk to myself properly‘ or ‘stand up straight on the greens.’ One day I might say, ‘Don’t talk to anyone.’ On another I’ll be a lot chattier. Or I might say, ‘smile all the way round.’ Little things. But little things turn into bigger things.
In the second round, everyone knows I can keep going.
Without evidence, anything goes. Think about it. Common sense says the sun goes round the Earth. Who agrees with me?
Harry Kroto
I think women should be more independent. In society, we’re portrayed as people who simply wear make-up and sit around. We need a Princess Charming – a woman who rescues her man and slays the dragon instead of the other way round.
A silent man is easily reputed wise. A man who suffers none to see him in the common jostle and undress of life, easily gathers round him a mysterious veil of unknown sanctity, and men honor him for a saint. The unknown is always wonderful.
Frederick William Robertson
Everyone knows that Tom Brady wasn’t chosen until the sixth round of the NFL draft, after teams passed over him again and again.
I'm from Los Angeles, and we have 24/7 sun pretty much

I’m from Los Angeles, and we have 24/7 sun pretty much all year round.
‘Tis love that makes the world go round, my baby.
I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can’t move well and I like to move. When I’m not training, I get really round and soft.
My first restaurant job was Knight of the Round Grill.
You don’t have to be a superhero and pull off shots you’ve never hit before. Your goal should be to put yourself in position to play as close to your regular game as possible. That’s what I did in the final round of the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie, when I was in the final pairing with Jordan Spieth.
I decided to go and find India on my own. So, I hired a cab for a drive round old Delhi. I was knocked off center by the sheer energy that goes into daily survival.
I’m never going to try ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ in New York. That would be a very different thing. Mariah Carey’s one, we just drove, like, five or six blocks round where she was staying at the time.
I was shooting for two Balaji shows, Kayamath’ and Kis Desh Mein Hai Mera Dil,’ in Mumbai. I was tired working round the clock.
My mum and dad weren’t together when I was born. When I was a teenager, dad brought this girl round: here’s your sister. She was only two years old, and I never saw her again from that day.
I’m not terribly well read. My wife forces books into my hands and insists I read them, which I’m grateful to her for. She made me read ‘War and Peace.’ The whole thing. It was amazing, but I had to hide it. You can’t walk round reading ‘War and Peace’ – it’s like you’re in a comedy sketch and you think you’re smart.
When I was doing ‘A Disappearing Number’ in Plymouth, we had to go on an hour and a half late, and I still hadn’t written an end, so we had to make one up, and then we had to go out literally with our pants round our ankles.
I’ve got loads of ideas swimming round, and I’ve even organised them in a nice folder on me computer.
Michael Bisping, we had a five round battle. I beat him for five rounds and tripled the amount of strikes landed. I landed more take-downs in that fight than had been landed on him in his entire career.
You’ve got a little round ball and a little round bat and anything can happen.
Lefty Grove
I can’t even count how many times I’ve been pulled over. I can’t count how many times I’ve gone to a club and not got in, how many times a security guard has followed me round a shop. I can’t count how many times that somebody has asked me if I’m a footballer because I’ve come out of a nice car.
I have been taking my daily walk round the island, and visited the sugar mill and the threshing mill again.
Fanny Kemble
We love live because of the roughness round the edges, the excitement, the madness, and stuff going off on all sorts of weird tangents. It’s like hosting a jolly in your house. We’re welcoming people in and giving them snacks.
My husband has a wife who is happy to wander round in old leggings held up with worn elastic. I’m happy with who I am and I’m more concerned with other issues and trying any way I can to make a better world for our children.
If someone was walking round in a T-shirt with Sarah Lancashire on it, I’d find that very disturbing.
A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away. He must have time to modify his shape.
Long Way Round’ was the first time Ewan and I had done anything like that. We went through Mongolia and Siberia and places like that, so it was very tough.
I started doing a paper round when I was about 10. I started earning 10 pounds a week and then I was obsessed with earning money until I was about 15.
We’d have Mick Jagger round for tea one morning or Janet Jackson wandering in, but I wouldn’t have been aware of it. I didn’t have a clue who anyone was. They were just dad’s friends popping in.
You know, it was a small, independent movie and with Paramount becoming involved, it was obviously a good thing, but you can’t put a round peg in a square hole.
I don’t want to just go to the playoffs, I don’t want to go to the playoffs and win the first round, second round, and not win the whole thing because it’s bittersweet.
The Royal Family are not like you and me. They live in houses so big that you can walk round all day and never need to meet your spouse. The Queen and Prince Philip have never shared a bedroom in their lives. They don’t even have breakfast together.
My mother was a classic matriarchal figure. She’d sing round the house and always had music on.
Today the theory of evolution is about as much open to doubt as the theory that the earth goes round the sun.
For ages, in my lunch hours, I would just go round and choreograph fight scenes. For fun. So now I’m very good at being thrown around. I bounce, in the words of my friends.
I don’t think there is anything owed to us. You’ve got to go out and work hard for every round win.
Larry Dixon
Skinniness is not your friend when you’re over 40. I’d like to gain a good 10 pounds, but I did always have a fat, round face that plagued me when I was young. When I started to make movies, I couldn’t look at myself.
Vijay Singh won a playoff in 2004 at Whistling Straits

Vijay Singh won a playoff in 2004 at Whistling Straits after a final-round 76, which was the highest last round by the winner of any major since 1938, when Reg Whitcombe won the British Open with a 78 in a storm that blew down the exhibition tent at Sandwich.
Everyone needs to be in position to create the openings we have. We like to play a lot where you pass the ball forward and it comes back, because it makes it easier for us to attack, because the midfielders have to turn round.
I usually create sounds and have different generators running over it. You know you can open a word-file as a picture or the other way round. I do the same with sounds.
Alva Noto
