You’ve heard me call myself a bluesman and a blues singer. I call myself a blues singer, but you ain’t never heard me call myself a blues guitar man. Well, that’s because there’s been so many can do it better’n I can, play the blues better’n me. I think a lot of them have told me things, taught me things.
Essentially, every technology you have ever heard of, where electrons move from here to there, has the potential to be revolutionized by the availability of molecular wires made up of carbon. Organic chemists will start building devices. Molecular electronics could become reality.

Too often, politics is like bad theater. The mass media simplifies stories and personalities into their most basic, digestible and familiar bits. Listeners prefer songs they have heard before, after all.
One of my favourite Donald Byrd tracks is ‘Think Twice,’ and I didn’t want to sample it. I’ve always enjoyed when other people have sampled it, so I wanted to instead of making a beat with it or something like that, or freak the beat of whatever. I wanted to just recreate it in my own way, like how I heard it.

I didn’t really hear any other music other than what my dad was working on until I was 12. My recollection of hearing other music was that I liked some things that I heard but I always thought, ‘Where’s the rest of it?’ It didn’t have the same amount of detail or instrumentation or imagination in the arrangements.
I’ve heard people say it looks as if I don’t care and I’ve certainly read that, but the way I play is natural. I don’t think I can change it. I know I’m working as hard as the next man, even if it doesn’t always look that way.

I remember where I was when I first heard ‘Boyz N The Hood’ – 126th Street and Normandy, South Central, Los Angeles. I remember that I was on my porch. What they described in that song was so vivid and so clear to me because it was the kind of life I was used to witnessing and partly experiencing in my neighborhood.
Government spending is taxation. When you look at this, I’ve never heard of a poor person spending himself into prosperity; let alone I’ve never heard of a poor person taxing himself into prosperity.

I was first influenced by a friend in fifth grade when he brought a Walkman to school and was listening to ‘Paradise City’ by Guns ‘N Roses, which he had concealed within his hoodie. He put the headphones over my ears and I was completely blown away by what I heard. I’ll never forget that.

It was a privilege to direct the music video for Adele’s beautiful, heartbreaking song, ‘Hello.’ When I first heard it, all the images appeared clearly in my head – and her trust and generosity allowed me to work with abandon artistically and emotionally, like she always does. It made me extremely proud.
I many times encountered courage, real courage. Undeniable courage. I’ve heard it said that that was the highest quality of the human animal. I encountered that many times, in unexpected places. And I have learned to recognize it when I see it.

I sang ‘Nessun Dorma’ twice with Pavarotti, and he told me he’d heard ‘Smoke‘ about five or six times, and every time was different. He was so jealous because if he deviated one jot from the traditional interpretation of the famous arias, he’d be crucified. We have the freedom.
It’s the same old story you’ve heard a thousand times. Somebody’s trust gets broken. Somebody’s left behind.
I definitely move to the beat of my own drummer and man, he’s not playing something anyone has heard before. It’s pretty cool, though. Pretty cool.
I was in my thirteenth year when I heard a voice from God to help me govern my conduct. And the first time I was very much afraid.
I’ve sort of heard that ‘it’ girl thing, but not really. Hearing it from a few people doesn’t solidify it in my mind and I wouldn’t know how to solidify that title. It’s so elusive and what does it mean, I don’t know?
The life and liberty and property and happiness of the common man throughout the world are at the absolute mercy of a few persons whom he has never seen, involved in complicated quarrels that he has never heard of.

Many times, I have been shocked and frightened by human beings. I have experienced delight and revulsion. I have sometimes wanted to forget what I heard, to return to a time when I lived in ignorance. More than once, however, I have seen the sublime in people and wanted to cry.
I don’t live in this soul music bubble. I love Young Thug, Drake, Kendrick Lamar. I even heard that Kendrick was a fan of my music. Hopefully there’s a door open for us to do music together. He’s one of my favorite artists. I love Jazmine Sullivan, Lianne la Havas, Usher, Ginuwine. It goes further than classic soul.

I originally got very interested in memory in high school when my grandmother came to live with us. She had been diagnosed with dementia. It was the first time I had heard the word ‘Alzheimer‘s disease.’
My love for American music and American movies is from an early age. I was 10 or 11 when I heard Fats Domino and Little Richard and Buddy Holly. And the movies, my dad used to take my brother and I to the movies every Friday. It was incredible: we got to see just about every movie that came out for a period of years.
Everything you’ve heard about Canadians apologizing profusely for things they shouldn’t be sorry about is absolutely true. It is both sweet, endearing and worrisome at the same time. Having someone apologize for no reason actually makes me feel as though I should apologize for their need to apologize.
Shiddat’ is a beautiful story of love and the strong bonds between people. It is pure and intense and also very relatable. I am usually not a love story kind of person, but when I heard the script, it moved me a lot.

I only tweet if I discover something that’s fantastic, or if I heard something really great.

If you want to study one of these strange organisms, you had better have a good justification. It’s not good to study gene organisation in some obscure insect that no one’s ever heard about.
I believe there’s other forms of intelligence in the universe. I’ve seen and heard some pretty convincing UFO stuff. Besides, if we’re the most intelligent things in the universe… well, that’s just depressing.
With Scarlett Johansson, I always thought she was pretty, but then when I heard her sing, there was just something about her voice that made her really, really attractive to me. And I think she would be fun to hang out with.
I’ve heard that Alfred Hitchcock said that by the time he was ready to shoot a film, he didn’t even want to do it any more because he’d already had all of the fun of working it out. It’s the same thing with these Frank comics.
When I heard the word ‘cancer,’ I was in bits. I panicked, I think everyone does, it was very scary, horrible. Thankfully, the melanoma does not appear to have spread. They’ll continue to monitor me, I’ve got scars on my face, on my back. Good thing I was never worried about my good looks.
We would not have rock and roll without Chuck Berry, and when I first heard Chuck Berry, I fell in love with that music, and when I saw him, I changed my whole career trajectory that I was on as a kid.
You may have heard that back in the States there are some people who are smoking grass. I don’t know how you feel, but it’s sure easier than cutting the stuff.
I have always heard that you need to give yourself a long time to unplug when you do a sabbatical. I unplugged so fast I was a little concerned that I was losing brain capacity.
There haven’t been a lot of superhero movies with female leads, and there have been even fewer – if any – that were truly funny. I heard Ant-Man was, but I haven’t seen that yet. So, that would be my goal, my dream – to be a super-heroine who’s not afraid to be feminine and also not afraid to make people laugh.
We don’t know anything about racism. We’ve never experienced it. If words can make a difference in your life for seven minutes, how would it affect you if you heard this every day of your life?
I have never yet heard of a murderer who was not afraid of a ghost.
You know, I was such a big Beatles fan, and when I’d buy a new album I’d invariably hate it the first time I heard it ’cause it was a mixture of absolute joy and absolute frustration. I couldn’t grasp what they’d done, and I’d hate myself for that.
I went to my son’s graduation this weekend, and I heard a great quote I’ve never heard before from Albert Einstein. It was that the greatest danger to the world is not the bad people but it’s the good people who don’t speak out.
When I heard Donald Trump make that sweeping hysterical statement that all Muslims have to be banned because they are terrorists, I was chilled by that.
When I heard Elvis Presley, then I knew I had to do music. Music is my god, and is the only love that has never left me. It has always been there and is my best friend.

I have often heard it said that the United States is isolated and is not interested in European affairs. I assure you that this is not the case.
There’s no question in my mind that it was C.I.A. sanctioned, and most – many Latin American investigators have come to the same conclusion. Of course, we never heard about that in our country.
I think its so cool that you can pick up the guitar and create something that didn’t exist 5 minutes ago. You can write something that no ones ever heard before. You have music at your fingertips.

The true Caribbean people… we are carnival people, we are vibrant people, not dead people. We like to be heard and we like to have fun.

I heard I am one of the most representative bachelor actors of Korea with Kang Dong Won, So Ji Sub, and Hyun Bin.
When I learned to play music, I was listening to blues music. And all the blues music I liked was super simple and stripped down. And then all the hip hop I liked was super simple and stripped down and we always heard that connection.
It’s been a long haul. It may seem to some people that have never heard of me, ‘Oh she just popped up on the scene,’ but I’ve been working on this for some time.
I’ve heard people say in the U.N. community among mediators they don’t like women as mediators because they’re too quick to compromise.
Fathers should be neither seen nor heard. That is the only proper basis for family life.

You should not decide until you have heard what both have to say.
I only hope that He will let me preach to those who have never heard that name Jesus. What else is worthwhile in this life? I have heard of nothing better. ‘Lord, send me!’
I’m constantly running across people who have never heard of books I think they should read.
I’ve heard that Bon Iver liked my cover of ‘Skinny Love.’

I’ve always heard people’s criticisms twice as loudly as their praise.
Judas heard all Christ’s sermons.
When it was my turn, I just skated out and heard this huge cheer. It was very touching considering the bad circumstances under which I had left the team and that I had been away for four years.

For people on social assistance, the loss of free dental care, prescription drugs and subsidized housing can greatly outweigh additional income from working. We’ve all heard the stories.
It shouldn’t be a Higgs field. If it’s anybody’s, it should be Goldstone field, I think. When Nambu wrote his short paper in 1960, Jeffrey Goldstone of Cambridge University, who was visiting Cern, heard about it. He then wrote a paper which was conceptually similar to what Nambu had done, but a simpler model.
I don’t think the Beatles were that good. I think they’re fine, you know. Ringo’s got the best backbeat I’ve ever heard… Paul is a fine bass player… but he’s a bit overpowering at times.
My dad is a storyteller. I’ve heard his funny stories 500 times, but I would never stop him because he tells them so brilliantly and still knows where to put the funny bit.
A sense of humor is good for you. Have you ever heard of a laughing hyena with heart burn?
I’ve heard countless women – but not a single man – say to me, ‘I could never stand up before the Supreme Court; it would be way too stressful.’ But I’ve heard countless men, and very few women, say to me, ‘I would love to argue in front of the Court; that would be so exciting.’
I’ve heard other gay people say when they were growing up they felt ‘foreign.’ Growing up, I was able to label these feelings as: ‘I’m a Protestant.’ It wasn’t until I left, I thought: ‘Oh, those weren’t Protestant feelings.’
We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored.
My delivery can be intense, but it’s intense because I need to be heard. I know that people don’t usually listen, as it relates to constructive criticism, without getting offended. So, I speak my mind with an attitude that I don’t care if you get offended; I just want you to get the message.
I just found out last week – my sister told me – that my father had some Beatles records. So I must have heard them quite a bit, but it never registered, really. Now I listen to them with new ears.
It’s really important that young women be reminded that their involvement matters and that their voice is heard. Even if it feels like it’s small, it really can make an impact.
Anirudh is phenomenal. His popularity among the youth is to be seen and heard to be believed.
My mother was a churchgoing lady, so I always heard about God at home.
When I heard Aretha, I could feel her emotional delivery so clearly. It came from down deep within. That’s what I wanted to do.
In fact, I heard Bird first, and had got well into listening to him. You know, it’s the kind of accidental thing that awareness of a player is: what’s available, what somebody happens to play for you.
If it’s genuinely new, when people are hearing it, they’re not really gonna be comfortable because they haven’t heard it a thousand times before.
I have heard some people say I have a low profile. Why should somebody be high profile, anyway? I am just doing my job.
I tried hard not to think about the scope or scale of making a record that would be heard by millions and millions of people. I did a pretty good job of tuning that out.
I’ve had two lives. The golfing part… the younger generation sort of heard about me but maybe didn’t realize I wasn’t too bad at times. Then the announcing part.
A hundred years ago, when Richard Strauss, who has already been quoted and already been heard today, and other creative people, laid the foundation stone for the joint assertion of their rights and interests, they had pioneering work ahead of them in Germany.
The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
I never heard ‘I love you‘ as a child. I never felt pretty or cared for.
I just want to get my music out and make sure that it’s heard in the right way.
I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.
No one has really heard my side of the story, the adventure we had together, the transformation that I had going from a schoolgirl to a woman overnight.
The highest and most beautiful things in life are not to be heard about, nor read about, nor seen but, if one will, are to be lived.
I’ve heard my share of Van Halen. I never liked rock.
Education is the key to the future: You’ve heard it a million times, and it’s not wrong. Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have to study the right subjects.
My grandfather lived across the garden from us, and in his attic he had a lot of radios, appliances and inventions that he had made over 50 years, such as a keyboard called a clavioline, which can be heard on some Beatles songs – it was popular in the 60s. So we had all that at home.
I took one thing to heart that I heard from Sidney Poitier in ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.’ And it resonated so much with me. He says: ‘Dad, you always looked at yourself as a black man. I look at myself as a man.’
A man is known by his works. That I have heard at many a funeral.
I will have a song that I’m in love with for a couple of months and then I’ll go to something else. That’s just constantly changing. And sometimes I will go back to old one that I haven’t heard for a long time.
I remember my first friend who got sick. It was 1981, and the disease was called the gay cancer. I don’t think the word ‘AIDS’ came out until ’84. I just remember it being terrifying as more people got sick. We didn’t know how you could catch it, you heard all kinds of crazy things.
Freedom of expression and freedom of speech aren’t really important unless they’re heard. The freedom of hearing is as important as the freedom of speaking.
I think most serious writers, certainly in the modern period, use their own lives or the lives of people close to them or lives they have heard about as the raw material for their creativity.
If I had to play only for people who liked the music because they heard it on the radio, it wouldn’t make me happy. That’s why I’m working so hard to have, yes, a profile as an artist, but also a profile as a DJ.
All my life, I heard, ‘Stop daydreaming,’ ‘Get over yourself,’ ‘You’ll never get there,’ ‘Aim lower,’ ‘You’ll hurt yourself,’ from teachers, family, and friends.
I was asking Charlie the most important questions, and you heard the answers.
And if citizens of New Orleans who are really contemplating coming back heard that we’re really intent upon making the place secure again – regardless of whether the levees held or not – then I think a rebuilding process would really take shape.
When I heard Little Richard, I mean, it just set my world on fire.
I don’t understand why some people will only accept a guitar if it has an instantly recognizable guitar sound. Finding ways to use the same guitar people have been using for 50 years to make sounds that no one has heard before is truly what gets me off.
El Salvador is a democracy so it’s not surprising that there are many voices to be heard here. Yet in my conversations with Salvadorans… I have heard a single voice.
I heard this massive thud. I spun around, and there Keith was, on the ground. He’d cut his gums up on impact, he was very bloody, and clutching his head. I think it was a kind of wake-up call for him.
I was about nine years old when I first heard Wu-Tang’s ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ Before that, I didn’t know anything about rap or hip-hop. I was just into Korean pop.
Being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person they are almost indistinguishable.
My name is Bruce Feiler, and I’m an explainaholic. I first heard this word used to describe Isaac Asimov, and I knew instantly that I suffered from the same condition. It’s the incurable desire to tell, shape, share, occasionally exaggerate, often elongate, and inevitably bungle a good story.
Out of 30 years of Second City I was probably the third African-American with the main stage cast. I was surprised when I first heard that. I think part of the reason that improvisation has never been popular with African-Americans is that it isn’t popular in the inner cities.
I auditioned for a solo in church and got it. I was about seven and I sang a song called, ‘Jesus, I Heard You Had a Big House‘ and I remember people standing up at the end and me thinking, ‘Oh, I think I’m going to like this.’ That’s how it all began. Sounds funny to say you got your start in church, but I did.
I haven’t heard anything from anyone in the administration.
I loved Rent when I first heard it, but it grew on me and so did Tick, Tick… Boom. Some songs are more interesting than others and sometimes the ones that never stood out at first end up being the best to perform.
If you want what you’re saying heard, then take your time and say it so that the listener will actually hear it. You might save somebody’s life. Your own, first.
Whenever I’m in Kansas City, I think back to all the jazz-blues greats who played the blues here – like Count Basie, Charlie Parker and Jay McShann. I watched those guys jam in different places and heard a lot of things – but I couldn’t do what they did. They were too good.
The friendship I had with Elvis began to take shape in 1968 when I was recording in Memphis. I’d record during the day, and Elvis would send one of his guys over to bring me to Graceland at night. Everything you’ve heard about Graceland during Elvis’s glory days is true and then some.
We know that the elements in play in a show like ‘Confederate‘ are much more raw, much more real, and people come into them much more sensitive and more invested, than they do with a story about a place called ‘Westeros,’ which none of them had ever heard of before they read the books or watched the show.
I’d heard about Texas football and how much of a religion it is, but to go to Odessa and experience it first-hand is something different than just hearing about it.
I have friends who are going through chemotherapy, and they make the darkest, most hideous cancer jokes you’ve ever heard.
Mistakes were made is something we heard back in ’92, and that has sort of been the Clinton administration’s mantra. I can’t imagine that Al Gore is going to pick up that statement and carry it through the next election.
No child should be left behind – I’ve heard this from President Obama. And here, we say in Latin America, no country should be left behind.
Before I ever heard about ’60 Minutes,’ I had been a writer, a columnist for ‘Life’ magazine and for ‘Newsweek’ – that was about as high as you could get in column writing. I care about my writing. I’m not a quack-quack TV journalist.
Country music is just country. It’s going to shift around a little bit, doing some different instrumentations, different production styles. But it will always come back to what you heard at the Opry. Nobody wants it to change.
I have heard people eat most heartily of another man‘s meat, that is, what they do not pay for.
I was asked about doing a nude shoot for men’s magazine GQ. I thought it was the funniest thing I’d ever heard.
I feel that I communicate best when I am not deliberately being linear. Along this same line, I feel some of the best sermons I’ve ever heard were in the theatre rather than the pulpit – as, for example, in the Theatre of the Absurd.
But in my district I have heard from law enforcement officials and across the State of Florida about how much this JAG funding helps them fight crime, and to protect and serve the citizens within their jurisdiction.
A national political campaign is better than the best circus ever heard of, with a mass baptism and a couple of hangings thrown in.
But if you think of all the people who don’t like me, just think of all the millions who’ve never heard of me!
It’s about your heart and about your consciousness. It’s not about length of time you pray. Some of the most powerful prayers I’ve ever heard come from children, who can barely speak.
As soon as I heard ‘Calypso,’ I loved it.
We can have all the walkouts we want, but if we don’t walk to that ballot box and make our voices heard, these politicians aren’t going to listen.
The more English is heard in the world, the more gratifying it seems to speak French, and above all to know the culture of our country. They find a kind of French social grace in the language and culture.
I think that everybody wants to be heard, and the easiest way to be the loudest is to be the hater.
Well, no. I believe that it’s not at all impossible that some of the performances that I’ve heard so far by some pianists may be superior to my own playing because those are two totally different acts altogether.
I don’t take for granted all the blessings that I have, and as soon as I heard about Computers for Youth, I really wanted to be involved. Anyone who knows me knows how much time I spend on computers. I’m a computer addict. Every young person deserves to have a computer in his or her home.
The thing about Brando was that I’d make these directions, and he’d walk away. He’d heard enough… to get the machine going.
My job as a performer is to make sure that whatever happens in a performance lives in somebody else, that it’s memorable… If you forget tomorrow what you heard yesterday, there’s really not much point in you having been there – or me, for that matter.
Now, the language that had grown up and formed itself on those principles is what one is dealing with, and the problem is to bring a work of art in that medium into another medium formed on different principles and heard and understood in a different way.

To be sure, the hard-to-come-by interview – the ‘get’ – isn’t an uncommon phenomenon here at ‘The Daily Show.’ We’ve had high-profile dignitaries, low-profile indignitaries, stars you’ve heard of, authors you should have read.
A Green Party candidate would be very different from a Democrat or Republican and should be heard.
I invent words you think you’ve heard – spray hopper or swag beetle.
I play a lot of video games. I’ve started playing even more games since I heard Cartoon Network was interested in making an ‘Adventure Time’ game.
I feel an acting stint would help me widen my reach as a singer. Being an actor would let me reach out to people who may not have heard my kind of songs.
One day I heard a speech of Hitler. In this speech he said that the German factory worker and the German labourer must make common cause with the German intellectual worker.

I had not even thought of running for president until one day in 1991, at a small fund-raiser, completely unanticipated, someone stood up and said, ‘Hey, Mario, in all the years we’ve supported you, we’ve never heard you talk about the presidency, and we want to know why not.’
After the many rumours that we had heard about Hitler and the published criticisms we had read about him, we were pleasantly impressed. His appearance was neither pretentious nor affected.
One of the things you can always depend on – this is one of the truths of the universe, and you heard it first from here – whatever we decide we want to do is what we do.
I tore up my knee break dancing. I have no idea how that happened. Apparently these legs are meant for swimming, but not dancing. I was watching an MTV video, thinking, ‘I can do this.’ Definitely not. I heard a pop. I sat down and it blew up like a watermelon. I had to go to the hospital and get surgery.
I’m inspired by many different things. Often, I’m inspired by experiences I’ve had, books I’ve read, people I’ve met, stories I’ve heard.
There’s a whole generation of women who never really heard the word investment before, when it came to fashion. They’ve been buying things because they were cheap.

The great medley of Oregon and California emigrants, at their camps around Independence, had heard reports that several additional parties were on the point of setting out from St. Joseph‘s farther to the northward.
Do awards change careers? Well, I haven’t heard of many stories where that’s the case. It’s a fun excuse to meet colleagues and celebrate people who’ve done well that year in certain people’s eyes, and it’s nothing more than that.
Finding people who get enormous pleasure from reading books is a more and more unusual experience, and so writers just so much want to be heard.
I was raised in a time where children were still seen and not heard basically, so I think a lot of us in my generation went the other way and just tried to be as much more liberal and open and we’re still paying for it.
The only people I’ve ever heard saying that disagreeing with Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld is un-American or treasonous are people who disagree with Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld.
I know when ‘California Dreamin’ was first released, we heard it on KFWB or KHJ or something, and it was so exciting to hear the record come on the radio.

A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of.
I’ve heard expressions like, ‘Are you good in bed?’ What does that even mean? For me, good in bed means sleeping seven hours. Undisturbed! If I get eight hours, that means I’m amazing!
It keeps me in touch with younger musicians who are constantly saying, ‘Have you heard this new artist, or this new guitar player?’ It keeps you reaching.
Cricket was deemed too posh where I came from, and I’d never have risked walking home through the estates in my whites. My club played some of the posh schools. I’d have the cheapest kit, but I loved those games. As soon as the posh lads opened their mouths and you heard their accents, the stakes were raised.
I have heard that the Saudi Arabians are paying Greenpeace to campaign against Nuclear Power. It wouldn’t surprise me at all.
I’ve never once heard my mom complain about her stroke.
Every successful person I have heard of has done the best he could with the conditions as he found them, and not waited until next year for better.
Well, Jeff Buckley for me is one of the greatest singers I’ve ever heard. And the reason why is he has an amazing range, amazing emotional power in his voice. And the music he put around it also just had this passion and this soul to it and this spirit to it that very few artists have, and he passed at a very young age.
There might be children in Somalia or the Arctic who have never heard of ‘Hamlet’ or the ‘Great Gatsby.’ But you can bet they know ‘Tarzan.’
Not all single women want to be married. Not all boys like football. Not all homemakers like to cook. Not all messy people are lazy. And not all the obese are gluttons. There are glands and diabetes and a dozen conditions you never heard of that may account for things. Put your sermon through the counter-stereotype sieve.
I’m a storyteller; that’s what exploration really is all about. Going to places where others haven’t been and returning to tell a story they haven’t heard before.
I write the music because I can’t really write lyrics. But I can write chords like Robin’s never heard of. So I provide the music for them to add the lyrics to.
Watch MTV and you can see what the music scene is like in England. The Spice Girls? Not a lot of creativity in the commercial area. There are still great musicians in England, but not a lot being heard that much.
And all who told it added something new, and all who heard it, made enlargements too.
I always had a frisson when I heard the Champions League music. To play in that competition, to score a goal in it, is something special for me.

Country is not what you heard on the Grammys.
I heard Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis, and that was it. I didn’t ever want to be anything else. I just started banging away and semi-studied classical music at the Royal Academy of Music but sort of half-heartedly.
When I saw the movie, I said, I wish I had heard the music. I would have ridden the horse differently.
I’m very leery of show business, having been in Los Angeles for the last 10 years. Buzz is a dangerous thing that I’ve heard applied to a lot of people that I’ve since not heard of again.
You turned on the radio and heard all kinds of things.
As a preacher of the Gospel, our late venerable Bishop must have been heard, to form an adequate conception of his superior excellence and commanding eloquence.

I’ve heard that the true love of country music is alive and well. That gives me so much hope and so much happiness.
I have long been one of those tedious people who rails against the coronation of ‘student-athletes.’ I have heard the argument that big-time athletics bring in loads of money to universities. I don’t believe the money goes anywhere other than back into the sports teams, but that’s another story.
If your voices are not heard, you can be sure that many others will be – in particular those who are paid to present a point of view, and often do it most effectively.

It was Max Perutz who inspired me to go into structural biology when he gave a lecture at Harvard in 1963. As soon as I heard him talk, I decided that this is what I want to do.
There will always be another group of kids going to college, drinking beer, and discovering that movie. Many of them have never even heard of SCTV.
Many people have told me that once they learn of Madam Walker’s accomplishments they are surprised, even embarrassed, that they have never heard of her. But they shouldn’t be. Her extraordinary story was simply omitted from the history books.
Best two rock voices I’ve heard in a last few years both have been from grunge bands: it’s Eddie Vedder and the other one is Chris Cornell from Soundgarden.
An organization which claims to be working for the needs of a community – as SNCC does – must work to provide that community with a position of strength from which to make its voice heard. This is the significance of black power beyond the slogan.
I’ve heard people say South Africans are arrogant, that they act no differently from their colonial masters. That needs to change. It’s in your business interest as an entrepreneur to form meaningful partnerships. That’s how you do well for your shareholders.
We’d go to the fraternity house. It was a good place to practice. But we really wanted the kids to overhear us. And whoever heard us would go nuts over it.

I refused to wear make-up on TV. I wanted my music to be heard.
If T-Bone Walker had been a woman, I would have asked him to marry me. I’d never heard anything like that before: single-string blues played on an electric guitar.
When I first heard ‘Pearly Gates‘ by Mobb Deep and 50 Cent growing up, the rapper Prodigy had a line about wanting to beat Jesus up. I wasn’t religious, but I’d never been introduced to something like that. I was scared and mad, but then I asked why I felt like that.
So many people are campaigning, fighting, and even dying to make a statement in the name of humanity. These people have no voice that can be heard by many. I wish more celebrities would take the initiative to be that voice.
As for me, even though I have been accused of anti-Semitism countless times, no one has ever heard me make anti-Semitic statements or engage in anti-Semitic behavior.
Some of the greatest films and television have only been seen by the people that make them. And some of the greatest music is only heard by the people who make it.

Just when you think you’ve heard it all from Team Obama, the next day brings another jaw-dropper.
I first fell in love with music when I was a little boy. When I first heard music, I felt the beauty in it. Then, being able to tap along on a table top and box was great, but my favorite thing to do was to watch records spin. I would almost get hypnotized by it. These things are what drew me in initially.
I’ve often heard the complaint from both Democrat and Republican voters alike that they hate the fact that politicians get into office and they – and they’re fearful, they’re fearful to make tough decisions because they think more about the next election than they do about the next-generation.

The moment I saw the model and heard about the complementing base pairs I realized that it was the key to understanding all the problems in biology we had found intractable – it was the birth of molecular biology.

This political climate today reminds me of what my father must have gone through in 1942, when the winds of war and fires of hate were surrounding him. We have a candidate for the presidency of the United States, Donald Trump, using the same rhetoric that my father must have heard from elected officials.
The suicide bombers who struck London on 7 July 2005 killed 52 innocent people and wounded hundreds more. All of them must live with their memories. And the rest of us will always remember where we were when we heard that London had been hit by the worst terrorist attack in its history.
When you think in terms of public service, I heard so much about what Mother Theresa had done in her life. And I was fortunate enough to get a chance to meet her and talk to her a lot about what motivates her and what drives her. And that, to me, is a person that really is an extraordinary role model.
I was about twenty and the Beatles were meditating and I heard about it and they had a center in New York and I came to the center and I learned about it.

That problem has been going on since men and women and their children moved from the plains and into caves. How many times have you heard Howard Cunningham talking to Marian about shopping? Too many.
Tiger is the greatest thing that’s happened to the tour in a long time. He has brought incredible attention to golf at a time of year when football and the World Series always take precedence. Everything I’ve heard about him seems to be true.

Well, before we met I had heard and seen him sing so I knew he was good.
If you’ve heard this story before, don’t stop me, because I’d like to hear it again.

So live with men as if God saw you and speak to God, as if men heard you.
But then there was Hendrix, man. Jimi was really the last cat to freak me. Jimi was playing all the stuff I had in my head. I couldn’t believe it, when I first heard him. Man, no one can ever do what he did with a guitar. No one can ever take his place.
Poor men’s reasons are not heard.
I mean, that’s another big surprise of the show, is that I see sixteen year old people who recognize me and they’re honest, for-real fans of the show. And it goes down to nine months. I mean, I’ve heard of nine month to year-old children who are watching the show.

When you do a lyric for ‘April in Paris,’ those who have heard it before can hear it in a different way now. It can add perspective to a great piece of music that does not have a lyric and may be inaccessible to lot of ears because people don’t deal with complex music very well.
The PC has improved the world in just about every area you can think of. Amazing developments in communications, collaboration and efficiencies. New kinds of entertainment and social media. Access to information and the ability to give a voice people who would never have been heard.
I had read the novel and I had heard David Lean was going to direct it – and it came as a surprise to me because American actors, if given the chance, can do style as well as anybody and speak as well as anybody.
We use a term called ‘empowerment through empathy.’ And ‘Me Too’ is so powerful, because somebody had said it to me – right? – and it changed the trajectory of my healing process once I heard that.
I was spoiled in a very strange way as a child, because everybody told me, from the moment I was able to hear, that I was absolutely marvelous, and I never heard a discouraging word for years, you see. I didn’t know what was ahead of me.
People are being incentivized for the wrong things. We’ve heard about a lot – doctors for procedures rather than creating wellness or maintaining wellness.
Lucknow, as far as I have heard, is always known for its culture, literature and poetry. So it has set a cultural benchmark for the entire country.
