I understand only three things – films, fitness, and food.

Beto’s copy of the Bill of Rights goes from one to three. Mine includes the Second Amendment. But there are a whole host of people here in Washington… they would be happy to confiscate America’s guns. And if you don’t believe that, then you probably also still believe in Bigfoot.

Socialism violates at least three of the Ten Commandments: It turns government into God, it legalizes thievery and it elevates covetousness.

It’s so exciting to be able to talk about Office 365. I can only describe what Office 365 is in sort of two words. You could say technically it’s three words. But Office 365, ladies and gentlemen, is nothing but a Google butt-kicker, that’s all it is.
When I write about Mickey Haller as the Lincoln lawyer, I totally see Matthew McConaughey because he took that character when that character was still fairly new to me – only two or three years old – when I knew McConaughey was going to play him.

I’m in a BMW rut. My last three cars have been BMW 3-Series.
No matter what I do, it’s all about the workouts. When I travel, I make sure I get my workout in first. When I’m in camp for a fight, I don’t travel at all, and I train three times a day. The secret is to just keep working.
My mother, Laura Sumner, had cerebral palsy. She was born absolutely fine, but after about three days, she started having convulsions that left her with a condition that would confine her to a wheelchair her entire life.
I think Dustin Hoffman has been in at least three of my favorite movies of all time with things like ‘Tootsie,’ ‘Marathon Man.’ Getting a bit more arthouse and darker, ‘The Graduate’ – incredible, barrier-breaking movie, ‘The Graduate.’
The average GOP presidential vote in these last five elections was 44.5 percent. In the last three, it was 48.1 percent. Give Romney an extra point for voter disillusionment with Obama, and a half-point for being better financed than his predecessors. It still strikes me as a path to narrow defeat.
An Olympic pursuit really takes a full three to four years of Olympic preparation.
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.

Sometimes I think that I want to do something strictly basic, really simple. Just with a few chords. But I won’t have anything more than two or three sentences in my head. That kind of evaporates once I start playing and then it goes off in whatever direction.
Miloslav Mecir – best anticipation of any player in our generation for sure. The most flexible… and then crazy good hands. He is the best player in the world to not have won a slam, for sure. No question in my mind. He should have won three or four.
If you’re setting up lights and tripods, and you’ve got three assistants running around, people will want to get you out as fast as they can. But if you go the opposite way, if you make the camera the least important thing in the room, then it’s different.

Three groups spend other people’s money: children, thieves, politicians. All three need supervision.
To me, the excitement is in ordering a fine shotgun, going through the process that everybody who has bought one has gone through for 100 years. You order it, you make a significant down payment, and then you wait three or four years for the gun to be custom-made for you.
Profitability, growth, and safeguards against existential risks are crucial to strengthening a company’s long-term prospects. But if these three factors constitute a company’s ‘hard power,’ firms also need ‘soft power’: public trust and acceptance, won by fulfilling a company’s social responsibility.
If triangles had a god, they would give him three sides.
A good chef has to be a manager, a businessman and a great cook. To marry all three together is sometimes difficult.

There are three principles in a man’s being and life, the principle of thought, the principle of speech, and the principle of action. The origin of all conflict between me and my fellow-men is that I do not say what I mean and I don’t do what I say.
The three great problems of this century; the degradation of man in the proletariat, the subjection of women through hunger, the atrophy of the child by darkness.

For three days after death, hair and fingernails continue to grow but phone calls taper off.
The three most powerful and most apparent means used by Rome to retain her power over the minds of her votaries are Ignorance, Superstition, and Persecution.
For three hundred years we have had our focus on the individual. We have distinguished him from the objective world as the Middle Ages did not think of doing. We have given him the world and the universe as a playground for exploration and discovery.
Of our seven children, five are at ABC Supply. The three older daughters went to college. The boys went into construction, and I wasn’t disappointed they didn’t go to college.
I believe that Americans should be deeply skeptical of government power. You cannot trust people in power. The founders knew that. That’s why they divided power among three branches, to set interest against interest.
Very near Auch, Lectoure, and Mirande, great fire will fall from the sky for three nights. A most stupendous and astonishing event will occur. Very soon afterwards, the earth will tremble.

If Moses had gone to Harvard Law School and spent three years working on the Hill, he would have written the Ten Commandments with three exceptions and a saving clause.
I know with my knee injury, I didn’t have the type of medical technology we have today. If I could’ve had what we had now, I probably could’ve been back out in three months. I didn’t have that.

As a kid, I got three meals a day. Oatmeal, miss-a-meal and no meal.

Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much, are the three pillars of learning.
‘Press Your Luck’ was probably the most exciting because of the unpredictability of the game and how I won on one of the three days on the very last spin against all odds. It was one of those great unpredictable game show moments.

At the moment I’m doing this space movie, so I’m obsessed with physics and space travel. I know three months down the line it’s gone. Then I’ll be able to superficially say stuff about space.
Although I never married, my brother fortunately did, and I have had the pleasure of watching his three sons and daughter grow up. Several of them now have children of their own. We have been a close-knit family, although often separated by distance, and have shared each other’s happiness, sorrows, and aspirations.

I believe in practicing prudence at least once every two or three years.
I am constantly being asked about individuals. The only way to win is as a team. Football is not about one or two or three star players.

The past is always – one moment it’s what happened three minutes ago, and one minute it’s what happened 30 years ago. And they flow into each other in ways that we can’t predict and that we keep discovering in dreams, which keep bringing up feelings and moments, some of which we never actually saw.
Every designer needs a story. Mine is all about glamour because my family has been in the business of glamour for three generations. My grandfather Shamshuddin Khan started his embroidery and fabric-making business in the 1930s.
If somebody wants to go to church because they like the ritual of it and want to sit in silence for a while one time a week, then that’s great. If someone wants to go because they believe that God them and Jesus rose after three days, then that’s great, too.
You’re always going to believe in yourself, and I have to thank God for that, but it’s pretty hard to believe that you can make it to the big leagues and that you can possibly get 200 hits three years in a row. I feel very proud.
I’ll do manicures, but I won’t wear nail polish because I don’t have time to change it, and I chip my nail polish so quickly. I cannot last three days! I think it’s the typing and the use – or overuse – of tech. I’m the chip queen!
What most people don’t understand is that UFOs are on a cosmic tourist route. That’s why they’re always seen in Arizona, Scotland, and New Mexico. Another thing to consider is that all three of those destinations are good places to play golf. So there’s possibly some connection between aliens and golf.
Always carry a notebook. And I mean always. The short-term memory only retains information for three minutes; unless it is committed to paper you can lose an idea for ever.
Free music, to me, is music without boundaries. It’s music that… says you don’t have to play a blues in three chord change. See what I’m saying? Music that can go from any range.
I have two or three cars that I like, but today, Ferrari would be the best car I have driven in terms of being an impressive car.
I’ve been very physical my whole life. I went out hiking and camping for days in the Australian forest, and when I trained at drama school for three years, we did a whole lot on stage-fighting techniques. And I was a dancer from 5 to 18, so I have a memory for choreography.

I do very well three things: my job, stupidities and children.

One martini is all right. Two are too many, and three are not enough.
We have the oldest written constitution still in force in the world, and it starts out with three words, ‘We, the people.’

Three o’clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do.
This is my experience on ‘RuPaul‘s Drag Race:’ three square meals a day, a challenge and put to bed by 9:30 P. M. Honey it doesn’t get any better than that.

Can I jump over two or three guys like I used to? No. Am I as fast as I used to be? No, but I still have the fundamentals and smarts. That’s what enables me to still be a dominant player. As a kid growing up, I never skipped steps. I always worked on fundamentals because I know athleticism is fleeting.

My wife and I tried two or three times in the last 40 years to have breakfast together, but it was so disagreeable we had to stop.
Do you know what a showmance is? It is like being at a summer camp when you’re a teenager. You spend summertime away from your home. When you spend three months very closely with someone at a particular place, it is like a summer love. You have no choice but to get involved with that person.
For about three or four years, I was in a lot more physical pain and stress than anybody knew. When I would meet people, I was kind of standoffish. That was because I was in a bit of a funk.
I write for no other purpose than to add to the beauty that now belongs to me. I write a book for no other reason than to add three or four hundred acres to my magnificent estate.
Jazz is not the kind of music you are going to learn to play in three or four years or that you can just get because you have some talent for music.
Think about Medusa, with the snakes. If you shoot a movie in Europe, the financiers are three snakes, and they all have opinions. In Hollywood there are, like, 20 snakes.
New York as an industry is the best city for real estate. You’re in a very transparent market. If you need to liquidate, you make three phone calls and you could sell something, even in the worst market. It is also less forgiving; if you make a mistake you can lose money.
Hercules King of Rome and of Annemark, three times one surnamed de Gaulle will lead, Italy and the one of St. Mark to tremble, first monarch, renowned above all.
