I loved being a part of ‘Celebrity MasterChef.’ The process was scary and I was so out of my comfort zone but I’ve learnt so much. Doing something I’d never done before put me in the position of the celebs on ‘Strictly‘ and because of that experience, I think i’ll be a better teacher because of it.

I’ve always workedclosely with the designers and whoever‘s making the costumes. Comfort is the last thing you want on your mind when you’re competing. In an ideal situation, you’ll have something where you’ll put it on and you’re fine and you don’t have to worry about it at all.

I guess, over time, I had convinced myself that I could imagine what it would be like to lose a son or daughter. You try to imagine it so that you can write the right kind of letters or form the right words to try to comfort. But you can’t even come close. It is unimaginable.
I can’t complain that I’ve had a public all through my writing life, but people don’t quite know what I’ve written. People don’t read you too closely.

I wanted to be a film student again, as a man in my 60s. To go someplace alone and see what you can cook up, with non-existent budgets. I didn’t want to be surrounded by comforts and colleagues, which you have when when you’re a big timedirector. I wanted to write personal works.

There are people who want the comfort and structure of a job where they’re given tasks and told what to do. I think it’s actually a minority of people. The majority of people don’t want that, but I’d say that the companies I’ve built are full of people with something to prove.

Ideologists of all kinds find a strange sort of comfort in the madness of the crowd; it confirms them in their suspicion that history, far from being made by the great mass of individuals – as Marx averred – is rather unmade by a single massive individual, a collective Other, who stands in stark contrast to you and he.
I have deep feelings for the welfare and comfort of others.

When I look for the next project, it’s always about, ‘Is it going to push me out of my comfort zone? Am I doing something different? Am I working with people who are passionate about what they’re doing?’ At the end of the day, if I’m going to be bored on set, then I’m not gonna be happy.

Most of the people you see me working for me are actually with me. And I’m proud to say that I’ve known them for 20 years almost. I’ve written songs with, produced songs with them a lot of times.

What’s comfortable to me is familiarity. Comfort has nothing to do with the size of the garment. I do find something quite comfortable and charming in a too-narrow shoulder, a sleeve that’s too short or too long, a pant that’s too high or too low, hems that are trod on.
A conviction that you are a daughter of God gives you a feeling of comfort in your self-worth. It means that you can find strength in the balm of Christ. It will help you meet the heartaches and challenges with faith and serenity.

It’s important to build trust if you’re trying to deal with big things.

And the only way you can do that is to engage them on a personal level.
There’s a certain level of comfort that comes when you move in together. The mystery is gone. She starts dressing for bed in your pajamas, cream on her face, Uggs, curlers. What happened to the sexy girl that used to come to bed in lingerie? The girl says, ‘We don’t need to act.’
Whatever I feel comfortable in is usually what I’ll wear. I go to different events and premieres and walk the red carpet… those things are awkward enough on their own. You don’t want to be pulling up a top all night. I will sacrifice foot comfort though. I love high heels.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The doctrine of the immortality of the soul has more threat than comfort.
I’ve hung out at dozens of playgrounds, bored out of my mind, with not even a look of comfort from disapproving mothers all around me. Either they think I’m a pedophile or a deadbeat dad. That’s what I get for being a single dad – suspicious looks at the playground.

All lives have triumphs and tragedies, laughter and tears, and mine has been no different. What really matters is whether, after all of that, you remain strong and a comfort to your loved ones. I have tried to meet that test.

I think it’s often assumed that the role of poetry is to comfort, but for me, poetry is the great unsettler. It questions the established order of the mind. It is radical, by which I don’t mean that it is either leftwing or rightwing, but that it works at the roots of thinking.
I never dress appropriately in terms of comfort, but I wear what I’m feeling. I often to like to feel a little different from everyone else.
We’ve been seeing a lot of brides buying two dresses for their wedding, especially in America, and a lot of brides are talking about changing shoes halfway through.

Riding clothes are ageless and timeless, and I love to incorporate that comfort and elegance in my life.
There is certain relief in change, even though it be from bad to worse! As I have often found in traveling in a stagecoach, that it is often a comfort to shift one’s position, and be bruised in a new place.

I think playing somebody who’s schizophrenic is such a lesson as an actor. It gets you totally out of your comfort zone, because you can’t rely on your technique, your external stuff. You’ve really gotta look inward, in a way.
If we depend for our happiness on another, on society or on environment, they become essential to us; we cling to them, and any alteration of these we violentlyoppose because we depend upon them for our psychological security and comfort.

I don’t get the jitters and I don’t get nervous, because I build that comfort on set for myself. Sometimes if I’m gonna do something really crazy, it helps me to yell or look like an idiot on set, so that when I’m about to do a scene, I’ve already embarrassed myself. I find ways to work around getting the jitters.
Man seeks to escape himself in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal. Drugs, alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw into himself, he disguises himself. Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort.

All I’m saying is, is God the god who we look to for comfort during tragedies? Is he the god who can control all those things, or is he the god that we don’t even trust with our daily lives… As long as there’s prayer and exams, as long as there’s games, there will be prayers.
For many of us, eating has surprisingly little to do with hunger. We eat out of boredom, for entertainment, to comfort or reward ourselves. Try to be aware of why you’re eating, and ask yourself if you’re really hungry – before you eat and then again along the way.
I’ve worked in the Inuit hamlets of the west coast of HudsonBay since 1994.

Whatever movies I sign, they have to get me out of my comfort zone. Otherwise, I would get bored very easily.

There’s a sameness and comfort level you get living in a country like America.
I love acting and would love to do it more. It’s harder to go into acting as a model now than it ever was because so many models are doing the same thing. I want to do anything that’s challenging and not within my comfort zone, and a Bond girl is so different to who I am.
Empathy goes a long way, for sure. We cannot have healthy, loving, mutuallyrespectful relationships without it. But we’re not psychic. At least I’m not. And intuition can only take you so far, especially when a person’s sense of safety, comfort, and self-worth hangs in the balance.
My professional acting life, stage and screen, has brought me public support, emotional fulfillment and material comfort. It has brought me together with fine people, good companions with whom I’ve shared the inevitable lot of all actors: flops and hits.
I admire but don’t envy people who have children and also have big, wonderful perfect houses. Maybe Martha Stewart could do it; to me those two things aren’t compatible, but I know our children will grow up with a feeling that home is a place of comfort.
I suppose being a bit of an antisocialweirdo definitely honed my skills as a soloist. It gave me a lot more opportunities to solo lots of easy routes, which in turn broadened my comfort zone quite a bit and has allowed me to climb the harder things without a rope that I’ve done now.
