I am nowhere near social media.

Every book has to start with a first chapter, and I thi

I always think if you are not a hard worker, you will g

I always think if you are not a hard worker, you will get nowhere in English football.

Lois Greenfield
I don’t know how, where, and why the idea for ‘Defending Your Life’ began; the idea had been bouncing around for a while. Stories like that sort of have to bounce. They don’t come out of nowhere.

In the traditional urban novel, there is only survival or not. The suburban idea, the conformist idea, that agony can be seen to and cured by doctors or psychoanalysis or self-knowledge is nowhere to be found in the city. Talking is a way of life, but it is not a cure. Same with religion.

I don’t think one should attribute the success and failure of a film to a single actor. When you decide to do a film, you weigh the pros and cons before taking a call. Only when you run out of patience, get insecure, and feel your career is heading nowhere do you sign anything that comes your way.

I think what gets a poem going is an initiating line. S

I think what gets a poem going is an initiating line. Sometimes a first line will occur, and it goes nowhere; but other times – and this, I think, is a sense you develop – I can tell that the line wants to continue.
My main aim in ‘Gandhi‘ was to project him as the vanguard of non-violence. Nowhere in the world has a movement of non-cooperation sans violence received so much support from masses as Gandhi’s movement in India did.

Nowhere else, perhaps, is the Quran recited so much and understood so little as in India.
War seems to come out of nowhere, like rust that suddenly pops up on iron after a storm.

For most of our nation’s history, whatever the inequality in wealth between the richest and poorest citizens, we maintained a cultural equality known nowhere else in the world – for whites, anyway.
I don’t think that bands that make it on their first album are as strong as bands that don’t: there is nowhere to go but down.
The historical profession is nowhere famous for its tolerance, but there are not many countries where historians can expect to pay for their opinions with penal servitude or the firing squad.
My best moments are when I write songs out of nowhere.
If you look at it ecologically, deforestation is high on the list of things which bring devastation. You cut down trees to build homes, for fuel, and you end up with no trees left, and you have to move on. If you take the earth as a whole, eventually there’s nowhere to move on to.
When Ke$ha tries to rap like L’Trimm, she sounds like any ordinary lonely teenage girl stuck in a nowhere town, singing along to her radio and dreaming of a party where she’s the star. Ke$ha’s greatness is that in her voice, you can hear both the loser girl and the star. All hail the Queen of Noi$e!
Many now born, by the time they are voters will compose part of a nation with a genius nowhere equaled, and with a vast territory upon which those energies and that genius can operate.
Richard Parks Bland
Nowhere is it written that there must be conflict between the United States and China.
In Japan, I live in a little neighborhood in the middle of nowhere. I don’t have a bicycle or a car or anything, so my only movement is within the boundaries of my feet. I feel there’s a need for that kind of conscientious objection to the momentum of the world.
I don’t just hop in the car. I have destinations. I drive to relax. I’ll be gone for two weeks, hit four or five major cities. I don’t like being nowhere for more than two or three days. I just go. I don’t have a schedule.
I do believe there is life in outer space. Mathematically, there has to be, and if you believe as I do that there is a creator of the universe, then how can we be so arrogant to believe he created life here and nowhere else?
As investments and as an energy source, fossil fuels have nowhere to go but down.
Always build. If you start at fever pitch, there’s nowhere to go.
I think what gets a poem going is an initiating line. Sometimes a first line will occur, and it goes nowhere; but other times – and this, I think, is a sense you develop – I can tell that the line wants to continue. If it does, I can feel a sense of momentum – the poem finds a reason for continuing.
Having a soft major is nowhere near the career death sentence that so many make it out to be. The world is changing, and the U.S. economy with it. Our economy is shifting to a service- and information-based economy, and soft majors are already becoming more and more valuable.
I can bet Salman doesn’t earn that much… well, at least nowhere near me.
The name Air Supply sort of came from nowhere. I get a lot of my things in dreams and I just had a dream about it one night, and I woke up and said that’s just got to be the name. That was in 1975.
Graham Russell
To be fair, I did come out of nowhere. ‘Ghost’ was the first song I ever did in a studio, my first time ever cutting a professional vocal.
I live in New Orleans, because it’s the strangest city in the United States. It has the highest murder rate in the country, the highest incarceration rate, and often we have to boil our drinking water, but there’s nowhere else remotely like it.
Nathaniel Rich
I’ve come from nowhere, and I’m not shy to go back.
Playing in America led to me getting a chance. Kicking around in the non-leagues I was going nowhere so I’m glad I did it.
My parents live out in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of this peach orchard. It’s actually Peach County, one of the largest peach-growing counties in Georgia. It’s very rural, and there is nothing much going on, so I guess that’s had a big influence on everything as far as just not having much to do.
It can’t just be about being sexy. It has to have all the emotions involved, I think, on the album and in the live show. Because if you do all sex, you lose all of the other beautiful things that should be a part of it… And just being sexy will get you nowhere.
I think it’s important to earn your fan base and not just try to immediately advance to the top. If you ride to the top quickly, you’re liable to fall as quickly. Take your time. It’s a long journey ahead of you as an artist. There’s nowhere that you’re supposed to be other than right now living inside of your art.
Remind yourself that winning an argument or proving your point really gets you nowhere in the long run. Win through your actions, not your words.
Flopping shouldn’t get you nowhere.
Viggo Mortensen had the biggest impact on me in terms of approach, dedication, intention, and artistic outlook, and I’m nowhere close to how good he is as an artist, and I wouldn’t even put myself in the same category as an actor.
A lot of people think I came out of nowhere. When you s

A lot of people think I came out of nowhere. When you start as a songwriter, nobody knows who you are. I met the guy who wrote ‘Yeah’ by Usher, which was a huge smash, and nobody knew who he was.
My mom had a heart attack, and it came out of nowhere – she was 54. My dad had leukemia for about 3 months. He was 80 when he passed. My dad had me later in life, and so he had leukemia and was alive for about 3 months between diagnosis and passing away.
In my line of work, I frequently communicate with CEOs and their executive assistants, and nowhere is the need for gratitude more clear.
I grew up in Northern Ireland, in the middle of nowhere, and when you are poor, you are really poor. And when you are rich, you are very rich. This is not a new phenomenon.
Tightening up border and immigration controls go nowhere in addressing the underlying causes of terrorism in our society and in our world.
You really disconnect yourself from the world being in the middle of nowhere.
The Anarchists set off World War I with a gunshot in Sarajevo – but they faded away. It wasn’t that the police drove them out of business. The ideology had nowhere to go except into permanent negativity.
I think women were gradually becoming more independent – the feminist movement of the Sixties didn’t just spring out of nowhere.
In Tennessee, you can live off fast food. It’s everywhere… But it’s nowhere in San Francisco, and I didn’t know how to navigate the city to eat.
Matt Cain
In college you might think you travel a lot, but it is nowhere close to the NBA.
I’m from the middle of nowhere in Somerset, and if I have too much stimulus or chaos, then I tend to not be as creative.
I love fighting. I want to fight, but there are principles in this game. You’ve got to have morals. I’m not just going to fight fights to fight to get nowhere.
For us, punk rock and even hardcore music was something we did because we didn’t fit in in high school. We had nowhere to go, so we went to shows.
Until we recognize the essential role of biology, our attempts to truly unify the universe will remain a train to nowhere.
I have a lot of confidence in myself, but I’m nowhere near as good as Tony Stewart, Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne. I think over time I hopefully can be.
Chipotle never lets me down. I feel like, in the middle of nowhere, Chipotle is still there, and my burrito bowl is still going to sustain me. So Chipotle, for convenience and reliability.
There is nowhere to hide as an international back-row forward.
It took a long time for hip-hop to become commercial. Now there’s all these big black icons that came from nowhere to somewhere. Look at Jay-Z! People stopped being threatened by the music and just started to appreciate that it’s good.
I’m from the middle of nowhere. I had to drive four hours just to find a city. It’s a different upbringing. It was perfect for me. I love the small-town feel, where you know everybody.
I’m from a very small village in the middle of nowhere, four hours by airplane from Moscow. Yemanzhelinsk – you wouldn’t find it on the map. Don’t even try it. It’s super, super tiny.
When you see a woman who can go nowhere without a staff of admirers, it is not so much because they think she is beautiful, it is because she has told them they are handsome.
I think the future of this planet depends on humans, not technology, and we already have the knowledge – we’re kind of at the endgame with knowledge. But we’re nowhere near the endgame when it comes to our perception. We still have one foot in the dark ages.
Graham Hawkes
You have be to ambitious, or otherwise, you go nowhere in life.
Jean-Eric Vergne
As an introverted kid who lived in the middle of nowhere, my stories made up the whole of my social life. That meant that while other kids cultivated hobbies like skateboarding or playing the piano, I sat at home scribbling in notebooks.
Erudition – that is, reading, writing, and arithmetic – is taught in the schools; but where is the more important quality, character, taught? Nowhere in particular. There is no authorized training for children in character.
Faced with stress, too many people feel they have nowhere to turn to, that they don’t have access to the kind of friendships or communities where they can easily and openly share their problems and worries.
People used to say that I thought I was Gareth Bale, and that’s not the case at all. I’m nowhere near that level. The guy has won so much – Leagues, Champions Leagues, scoring worldies in finals.
I love to see a guy who keeps plugging away make the most of his chance. You look at any successful team, and there’s always a player or two who seems to come out of nowhere to help lift that team to new heights.
I want to be alone and work until the day my heads hits the drawing table and I’m dead. Kaput. I feel very much like I want to be with my brother and sister again. They’re nowhere. I know they’re nowhere and they don’t exist, but if nowhere means that’s where they are, that’s where I want to be.
As you see, I do not treat the creation of fiction, that to say the invention and development of fantasies, as a form of abstract thought. I don’t wish to deny the uses of the intellect, but sometimes one has the intuition that the intellect by itself will lead one nowhere.
There are things about this country that are horrible; there’s things about this country that are beautiful. I’ve been almost everywhere, and there’s nowhere else I’d rather live.
Playing eight years, never making the playoffs, you fee

Playing eight years, never making the playoffs, you feel like you’re running on a treadmill that’s going nowhere. You’re like, ‘Is this it? Is this all football is?’
Nowhere in the world will you find a cowboy speaking in Tamil.
All those pseudo-Hollywood movies set nowhere, with everybody good looking and having great physique – that’s not working any more.
I’m nowhere with country music. I don’t hear much of it, so I shouldn’t venture an opinion, but when it finds me, it seems formulaic.
Nothing matches the sheer euphoria of discovering a new melody or a new batch of chords that just come out of nowhere.
Back in ’98 or so when I was in film school I was working on lighting for a movie in Georgia, out in the middle of nowhere at a gas station. Inside the gas station they had a bunch of old home remedies like castor oil, and one of them was a protein supplement called Beef, Iron & Wine. I just dropped the Beef part.
Trump did not spring out of nowhere, and I was struck by how prescient writers like Alexis de Tocqueville and George Orwell and Hannah Arendt were about how those in power get to define what the truth is.
I think when I graduated from my high school in ’84, they were just bringing computers in. I don’t even know if they were for classes. They might have just been for the administration. It was nowhere on the radar for anybody that I know.
Think of it this way: If you got a flat tire, what would you do? Change the tire? Or get out of the car and slash the other three tires? No! Get back on the road. Don’t dwell on it; don’t beat yourself up. That gets you nowhere.
That kind of creaming off the pretty postcard image of the past, I think, is a road to nowhere.
Scoring goals is nice, but I’m nowhere near Platini. I hope I can get closer to him.
I believe that loyalty is a cardinal virtue. Nowhere in the world is loyalty so little revered and tittle-tattle so greatly venerated as in Washington.
When I see a room full of people pedaling away on stationary bikes, I fall into an existential spiral. It’s confirmation that all we do as humans is pedal, pedal, pedal, and go nowhere. We’re just specks of dust in the universe, riding 1970s stationary bicycles.
Ali Liebegott
The Leave campaign claims we send £350 million a week to Europe. This is untrue. When you take into account the rebate Margaret Thatcher got for us and the money we get back in E.U. funding, the true figure is nowhere near that.
Usually I’m nowhere near the playoffs. My last game of the year is usually at the end of the regular season in April.
Generally, there are three rules when it comes to borrowing money: You need to have good credit, proof of income and cash for a down payment. Most people have the first two, but it’s the third that trips them up. And nowhere does that come into play more than the mortgage market.
To be sure, China is nowhere as powerful as the U.S., but it has acquired the ability to impose its will on individual nations around the world. From Australia to Germany, South Africa to South Korea, political leaders are careful not to rub China the wrong way.
I don’t think that Yahoo or any other Internet company should try to become a television network. We will be nowhere if we have to create our own content.
Terry Semel
My daughter was born when I was nowhere near where I am now, and she took me to another level. I said, ‘I have to become a better person in this life if I want to serve as an example. If I want to set a positive example for her, I need to get better myself.’
IronE Singleton
All paths are the same, leading nowhere. Therefore, pick a path with heart!
Carlos Castaneda
There is a wide, yawning black infinity. In every direction, the extension is endless; the sensation of depth is overwhelming. And the darkness is immortal. Where light exists, it is pure, blazing, fierce; but light exists almost nowhere, and the blackness itself is also pure and blazing and fierce.
Listen, I come from the most screwed-up dysfunctional situation. You’ve got violence. Police at your house. Your dad’s gone. Nowhere to live. I want people to know, if I can make it, anybody can make it.
My favorite days off on the road are typically nowhere, like Bismarck, North Dakota, and you find yourself in a mall, and you’re like, ‘This is awesome!’
If I’d had a charisma-ectomy in the beginning, XP would have gone nowhere.
I grew up in the countryside in the middle of nowhere in England and got out as soon as I could!
We had our unhappy moments but they got channelled into the kind of sadness that was necessary for singing a song about going nowhere. So it worked out very well I think.
‘Nowhere Man’ embodies one of my favorite themes – the hero completely out of his element. It’s really near and dear to my heart.
American? Indian? I don’t know what these words mean. In Italy, it is all about blood, family, where you come from. I’m asked where I am from. I’m from nowhere; I always was, but now I am happy knowing it.
I was eating cereal on my couch when I saw the first commercial for ‘The Wiz’ on TV. I dropped the spoon and the tears came out of nowhere.
Toad talked big about all he was going to do in the days to come, while stars grew fuller and larger all around them, and a yellow moon, appearing suddenly and silently from nowhere in particular, came to keep them company and listen to their talk.
Kenneth Grahame
Progress comes to those who train and train; reliance on secret techniques will get you nowhere.
I never get sullen, sad, or envious, because those emot

I never get sullen, sad, or envious, because those emotions will get me nowhere.
When you go out on loan it’s not the glitz and glamour, there’s nowhere near the amount of money there is at the top level. People’s livelihoods are on the line, mortgages and families. You are making decisions which can affect people.
Nowhere else have I grown more in my faith than in the midst of my family.
Deborah Raney
The nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere.
By 1993, the Stone Roses had become this huge, beautiful cruise ship just floating about in the middle of nowhere with no captain.
Donald Trump’s campaign is good at two things; hoovering up hundreds of millions of dollars from MAGA fans and spending them to move his poll numbers… nowhere.
Too many African countries have already hit rock-bottom – ungoverned, poverty-stricken, and lagging further and further behind the rest of the world each day; there is nowhere further to go down.
I was a million miles from being a Premier League player. You see some people, at 18 they are ready. At 21, I wasn’t. Physically nowhere near.
When I grew up, I grew up in the middle of nowhere. I wasn’t really able to have access to people other than like, my family, so being able to just have that access to people and technology to really change the world is incredible.
Tumours can come out of nowhere.
I live right in the middle of nowhere and I thoroughly enjoy it.
‘The Others’ books take place in an alternate Earth where the Earth natives have been the dominant predators throughout the world’s history, and humans are nowhere near the top of the food chain. But humans are clever and resilient, if not always wise, and have made some bargains with the Others in order to survive.
Anne Bishop
Every record store and record chain has folded; they don’t exist. They do not exist. And the only two outlets that would still sell CDs were Best Buy and Wal-Mart. They now have stopped selling it. There’s nowhere you can go into a store and buy a CD in America. That’s how it is.
There was never a nation great until it came to the knowledge that it had nowhere in the world to go for help.
Charles Dudley Warner
My parents managed a summer camp, and it was vacant for about seven or eight months out of the year. It was in the middle of nowhere in the woods. We backed up to a state forest. So absolutely, there were creepy woods all around the house. It was easy to get lost. It was really spooky.
Caitlin Kittredge
I am not patriotic or nationalistic, but the French language is like a country where I take refuge when I have nowhere else to go. It consoles me for everything. For me, the language no longer belongs to the colonialists.
If anyone thinks that Jews can steal into the land of their fathers, he is deceiving either himself or others. Nowhere is the coming of Jews so promptly noted as in the historic home of the Jews, for the very reason that it is the historic home.
Usually, the leaders appear in the moment of the highest stress, when it is time, speaking symbolically, to go to the barricades. Then people, clever, capable, but focused on their own tasks, will leave their immediate occupations and go to the barricades, because there is nowhere to hide.
Vladimir Bukovsky
Nowhere more truly than in his mental capacities is man a part of nature.
I don’t think people realize how many scripts you write that go nowhere.
The Williams sisters, they have this power. They have this ability to come back from nowhere.
Elena Vesnina
In a traditional TV show or movie, your hero is always where the action is. But in real life, at the end of the movie ‘Fargo,’ when Bill Macy is arrested, Marge is nowhere to be found because it’s a different jurisdiction, and she wouldn’t be there. I took that to heart.
I’m not going nowhere, no matter who I fight.
‘Cobra Clutch’ was to let the world know we ain’t going nowhere. We got the game in the cobra clutch.
I know plenty of wrestlers who are 15-0 and going nowhere.
When I think about 2017, I feel like it was just another year. It was a whirlwind, but I wouldn’t have wanted it to play out any other way. I’m glad I was in New York. There’s nowhere else I would rather play, and there’s no other group of teammates that I would rather be around.
The alt-right didn’t emerge from nowhere. There’s a cultural foundation that existed beforehand that was almost like the petri dish and the growing medium for the alt-right.
Our pool is outdoors, but it’s heated, and I’ve got one of those machines that produces waves you have to swim against; like a jogging treadmill, really, only it’s in water. Basically, it means you can have a small pool, swim for miles, and get nowhere.
Rupert Penry-Jones
Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be Revelation.
Eileen Caddy
When the going gets tough, the leeches are nowhere to be found, but the real people – the real friends – are with you through thick and thin.
Whoever thinks his friend more important than his country, I rate him nowhere.
A couple of weeks before the 1992 Houston Open, I was p

A couple of weeks before the 1992 Houston Open, I was probably as low as I could get confidence-wise. I didn’t think I was going to go any further, and then, out of nowhere, I won that week. That kind of got me going.
Fred Funk
A joke is not a thing but a process, a trick you play on the listener‘s mind. You start him off toward a plausible goal, and then by a sudden twist you land him nowhere at all or just where he didn’t expect to go.
Max Eastman
Nowhere outside of Southeast Asia is China’s rise as a global power more visible than in Africa.
I’m persistent. In the early ’60s, when I first started making the rounds in New York for theater work, I became more and more enraged every time I had an interview or audition that went nowhere, and became more determined. I haven’t lost that.
We are concerned that, in a few years time, this place of discovery, with its wealth of human fossils, the like of which can be found nowhere else in the world, could be completely destroyed.
Richard Leakey
Can’t even see without my vintage Versace frames. I don’t go nowhere without them on. I can’t even live without them. Every time I throw them on, I see all the haters, and I see where the money at.
I’ve had fun doing romantic comedies, but I just can’t anymore. There’s nothing fulfilling creatively, there’s nowhere to grow, nothing to learn from it or for yourself. I’d rather just be home with my family or write music until that special project comes my way.
I enjoy travelling the world, but nowhere beats Walsall.
We live in a disposable society. We throw so much away. But it doesn’t come from nowhere. It comes from the planet and it comes from future generations‘ lives.
In 2008, my one-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Sophia, suffered a grand mal seizure. It came from nowhere, for no apparent reason, and took hold of my little fairy-girl.
I live in the middle of nowhere. I’m a country bumpkin in Ireland, in Donegal, and to go from that to Toronto, huge city, massive buildings just stretching so tall.
Your first projects aren’t the greatest things in the world, and they may have no money value, they may go nowhere, but that is how you learn – you put so much effort into making something right if it is for yourself.
There are plenty of smart people who get nowhere.
Paul Graham
Film people can be quite ruthless and tough. I think it’s because the industry is filled with talented, driven people chasing nowhere near enough work.
Choices had become limited postCrook‘ and I was being offered films that had me play second fiddle. I realized that would take me nowhere, so I waited.
The web continues to be a source of important photographs you see nowhere else.
That perfect tranquillity of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library.
Aphra Behn
Neuroscience is a baby science, a mere century old, and our scientific understanding of the brain is nowhere near where we’d like it to be. We know more about the moons of Jupiter than what is inside of our skulls.
There are values on Broadway that are dangerous: it’s got to be Best Musical, it’s got to make money, it’s got to run a certain amount of time. Nowhere in this, of course, is there any mention of quality.
Nowhere has the political power of coal been more obvious than in presidential campaigns.
The old world of England was picturesque and safe in a way that L.A. wasn’t, but it was so amazingly socially cruel. I had never experienced that in America – never in school, nowhere.
Pull the string, and it will follow wherever you wish. Push it, and it will go nowhere at all.
Our fighters would be nowhere if they didn’t have the support coming from folks like those that served with me.
It’s an honour to extend my deal with Manchester City. This club offers everything a player needs to fulfil their ambitions, and there’s nowhere else I want to be.
We must have systems of checks and balances to make sure that those people who are making critical decisions for our country are held accountable, and nowhere is that more important than in the area of national security.
I do get cast in the same role a lot, but the truth is, I just want longevity. The thing is, I’d rather be stuck in a stereotype than be nowhere. The whole typecasting thing started because of ‘Reservoir Dogs.’ And I did a bunch of other films like ‘Wyatt Earp’ and ‘Free Willy,’ but no one seems to remember those.
Most prisons in this country are in the middle of nowhere, which makes it much easier for us all to throw those people away. Out of sight, out of mind.
Two months before I re-signed with WWE, I decided just out of nowhere that I will start dieting, to work on my body and train harder. I started focusing more. Two months later, WWE called me back to re-sign. That was not a coincidence but the universe telling me that I am ready.
When I look back at what I had to go through in black baseball, I can only marvel at the many black players who stuck it out for years in the Jim Crow leagues because they had nowhere else to go.
I need to be very isolated to write, and unfortunately isolation is often quite difficult to find. My ideal writing environment would be a country house hotel in the middle of nowhere, with full room service.
There are amazing acne treatments and creams out there, but sometimes we’re just hormonal, and there is nothing we can do about our ‘friends’ showing up out of nowhere.
I think women of our generation went through Cultural R

I think women of our generation went through Cultural Revolution, went through hardship, coming from nowhere, and suddenly see China’s amazing opportunity. So women just seized the opportunity.
Zhang Xin
The Spirit is a kind of postmodern loner hero. He comes from nowhere; he has no real relationship to anything.
David Newman
Stories surge up out of nowhere, and if they feel compelling, you follow them. You let them unfold inside you and see where they are going to lead.
If I was just a country singer, I wouldn’t be near as cool and I wouldn’t have nowhere near as cool of a fan base.
We have taught our children that meanness gets you nowhere in life.
We shot ‘Oblivion‘ in Iceland; that was amazing. It’s so, so beautiful. They didn’t have any Waldorf Hotels there, though; we stayed in the middle of nowhere!
Ideas sometimes come from nowhere, and sometimes they take lots of thinking.
Gail Carson Levine
I mean that at least 80% of the Russian people feel destitute. It’s the people who had their past and future taken from them – they don’t get paid – many of them face a wall. They have nowhere to go.
Aleksandr Lebed
I was trying to do one-liners and it took me years to realise I just had to be myself. My fear was if I was myself and no one found it funny, I’d have nowhere left to go.
And the thing about healing is sometimes you feel like you’re making daily progress, and then, from nowhere, your legs get taken out, and you feel like you start again.
There is talk about the need for a second Green Revolution. However, such a revolution is nowhere in sight.
My life has been a quest for knowledge and understanding, and I am nowhere near having achieved that. And it doesn’t bother me in the least. I will die without having come up with the answers to many things in life.
It’s a very competitive market. AEG has a ticketing platform, Stubhub has grown their marketshare, Vivid has come out of nowhere. It’s not like venues don’t have options. If you’re a venue you can pick any ticket platform you want, and we have to provide a better product and win that business fair and square.
Minimal art went nowhere.
My place in Scotland is in the middle of nowhere, so you’ve just got a keyboard, guitar, a little drum machine and you know if you can work stuff out like that, if you can hammer out songs that sound good just with those three things and a voice, you’re on your way.
On YouTube, you know, if you say something, you know, that triggers somebody, it becomes a whole controversy, a whole thing – and all the comments and everybody’s upset, whereas a book, there’s no comment section. There’s no – there’s nowhere for the audience to, you know, get mad at you for saying something.
I never, never supporting any violence and everybody that know me, and all the countries here they know well that is no one, nowhere that the former prime minister will become terrorist to hurt their own country. No way.
When I started out as a 12-13 year old, it was a stupid idea. I remember when I went to try to get coached by Heinz Reinkemeier and my coach Gaby, when I went and met them, India was nowhere in shooting. They said, ‘you want to win a gold at the Olympics? Why don’t you ride an elephant back home?’
I would be nowhere without martial arts. It’s a passion.
Leo Howard
I had my own label, Rising Force Records, and made records, but had them distributed to the chains, to the retailers, but the retailers are gone – there’s no physical sales anymore – so I’m not gonna make the CDs and have ’em put into trucks to go nowhere.
I’m not a fan of musicals at all, but I do think ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas‘ is a very good. I always thought ‘Walk the Line’ was very good, too. I was in ‘Nowhere Boy.’ I played Paul McCartney. That was kind of musical – we did songs in that.
I would say that although my music may be or may have been part of the cultural background fabric of the gay community, I consider myself an outsider who belongs everywhere and nowhere… Being a human being is what truly counts. That’s where you’ll find me.
I just want to prove that I am really good at something. And I haven’t quite done that yet – at least not to myself. I know I could ride so much better, with more ease, with more finesse. I feel I’m nowhere near as good as I should be.
I do still read comics since I started writing for DC, but nowhere near as much as I used to, and I’m finding now that it’s becoming harder to read comics as a consumer, so I think I’ll have to make the call there and stop reading them.
Compromises lead you nowhere. You can’t be happy doing something you don’t believe in.
I have become a bargain – where do you find a player who scores 28 goals in Serie A and costs €28m? Nowhere, right?
I think there’s lots of people with family connections but who are actually nowhere. If you’re hard-working and determined, you will make it, and that’s the bottom line. I don’t believe in an easy way through.
Isabel dos Santos
We have made the decision that we’re going to take some key products, such as the Wrangler and the Grand Cherokee, and protect those as being true American icons: produce them in the U.S. and make them available nowhere else.
The Doc Holliday of legend is a gambler and gunman who appears out of nowhere in 1881, arriving in Tombstone with a bad reputation and a hooker named Big Nose Kate.
Mary Doria Russell
There’s nowhere else in the world that’s quite like that, where they encourage going after your dreams, especially in Los Angeles. I think it’s really cool.
I like living, breathing better than working… Each second, each breath is a work which is inscribed nowhere, which is neither visual nor cerebral. It’s a kind of constant euphoria.
I'm the sort of person who, if I arrive in a city under

I’m the sort of person who, if I arrive in a city under siege, in the middle of nowhere, I’ll always find my way to the leader of the rebels. I just don’t know how.
I’m glad that my parents missed one thing that was really unbelievable. They saw me hit this great success. It was a blast and we had a lot of laughs. And it was just an amazing time. They passed away. And then after I got, you know, famous, all these haters came out of nowhere.
I get on all right with my parents. But I don’t see them very much. They split up when I was eight. I stayed with my mum, but I felt it was a bit soft with her. I could do whatever I liked, and I wasn’t getting nowhere, so I went to stay with my dad.
Joe Strummer
My whole initial goal was to be a comedian, so it’s not like I chose to do a TV show out of nowhere. It’s kind of always been goal to do a TV show.
I have always considered it a beautiful metaphor that Cervantes had no fixed address in Spain. He is thus everywhere and nowhere. There are a number of sites connected with his life, but none attract hordes of travellers the way Stratford-upon-Avon and the Globe Theatre in London draw Shakespeare aficionados.
There are times when I get a role that someone else didn’t. And there are instances when someone came from nowhere and is new to the industry, beat me to a role. The director and producer know who they want to work with. Who am I to stop them from doing that?
For a variety of reasons, my books struck the marketplace like a thunderclap; and one of those reasons was that there were so few alternatives available. Readers who loved Tolkien, and who were not satisfied by Terry Brooks, had nowhere else to turn.
Stephen R. Donaldson
I don’t do manbags! But don’t flaunt your money, your most expensive camera or your best watch. And don’t use a cashpoint in the middle of nowhere, or carry anything loose; it might get stolen by someone racing past on a scooter.
Collecting facts is important. Knowledge is important. But if you don’t have an imagination to use the knowledge, civilization is nowhere.
‘Love and Terror on the Howling Plains of Nowhere’ took me six years to write.
Poe Ballantine
Like many traditional feminists, I became one of the boys, only better. For a while it gave me a buzz to win at their game, but ultimately, that kind of power just goes nowhere. Traditional feminism excludes men and so perpetuates conflict. I am not interested in warring about power.
Scilla Elworthy
We got evicted from our house in Guildford. We were chucked out and had nowhere to go. We ended up in social housing. And it was very hard for my mum. My brothers were five and three.
The problem for many people is that we cannot point to the underlying biological bases of most psychiatric disorders. In fact, we are nowhere near understanding them as well as we understand disorders of the liver or the heart.
A scientist worthy of a lab coat should be able to make original discoveries while wearing a clown suit, or give a lecture in a high squeaky voice from inhaling helium. It is written nowhere in the math of probability theory that one may have no fun.
Postmodernism came nowhere close in quality to Modernism at its apogee, not least because that later style wholly lacked the social impetus that animated the designs most emblematic of the Modern Movement.
I’m not going around touring the U.S. when I’ve got nowhere to live.
Liam Gallagher
One of the blessings of Notre Dame is where it’s at. It’s in the middle of nowhere, but you become part of the community. It’s a lifestyle, and it has a code, and that code teaches young men and women responsibility and leadership.
You see a player come through from nowhere every now and again and getting a top club. It shows there are players out there.

My ideas tend to arise out of nowhere when I’m not intentionally trying to think of something.

There’s nowhere like home for me, but there has been something so interesting about most of the places I’ve visited. One that sticks out in my mind is traveling around South America. It’s a huge continent, and I only got to see a small portion of it, but I’ve always liked going there.
Brittany Bowe

There is nowhere I encounter greater understanding for

Vance McAllister
People are funny, and in the most tragic situations, when comedy erupts from nowhere, it can turn on its head within the space of a second or a minute. You’re laughing one minute and you’re crying the next and that’s just life for me, and that is what people are like.
When I left school – or, rather, when I was expelled from school for hitting a kid who had disrespected a teacher – I had nothing, with nowhere to go. Where I’m from, it really means that. Now my family are millionaires. I never dreamed this would be possible.

I would have written ‘Brown Girl Dreaming’ if no one had ever wanted to buy it, if it went nowhere but inside a desk drawer that my own children pulled out one day to find a tool for survival, a symbol of how strong we are and how much we’ve come through.
Now I live in the middle of nowhere on a working cattle ranch.
Out of nowhere, I became a fairly well-known director with a penchant for opera, which I did for 10 years. Then I realized I was taking myself out the theater channel, and so I re-focused on theater.

I didn’t have the privilege to enter the industry just because my father is Subhendu Chatterjee. I am nowhere near my father’s charismatic look. I chose this profession out of my passion for acting.

In the NBA, as in nowhere else in America, white people are utterly beholden to black people, and they’re not about to let us off that easily. It’s a kind of very mild payback for the last 500 years.
I started off as a right-winger, but my coaches pushed me further and further back. So much so that I ended up in defence, because I wasn’t good with my hands and there was nowhere else to go! So they put me there and that’s when I found my position.

I've been through difficult times where it just seems l

Doug Stanhope is great – I saw his ‘Burning the Bridge to Nowhere’ show and it was inspiring. He’s like an anti-shaman, taking the sting out of a bunch of things we’ve chosen to give a symbolic power to. I’ve made it sound noble and worthy there, it’s not, it’s really funny.
Totalitarianism is not about some state that appears out of nowhere and suddenly is all-powerful. There can’t be any such thing. Totalitarianism starts when the difference between your public life and your private life is effaced.

Nowhere so busy a man as he than he, and yet he seemed busier than he was.
Geoffrey Chaucer
I would be nowhere without my mistakes. I rely on them.
My dad used to get to the nastiest letters. But somebody had to take the time to type it, stamp it, send it to him, send it to the radio station. And I mean nasty stuff. It’s not like nasty people with nasty opinions just popped up out of nowhere.
I grew up in the countryside, in literally the middle of nowhere. We had one neighbor and a lot of sheep.
Georgia King
What is interesting about self-analysis is that it leads nowhere – it is an art form in itself.
I must say it was not very inspiring to see that tons of new bands emerged from nowhere and started to play the exact same music as I did. Why would I want to play this type of music, when tons of other bands did, too?

Tom Glavine

Nowhere are our calculations more frequently upset than in war.
The huge difference in my lifetime is that you can just go up to somebody and make a pass. You couldn’t do that in the 1950s if you were gay. There were secret handshakes, a secret language. There was nowhere you could go to be romantic outside of people’s houses.
