And when it has gonepast, I will turn the innereye to see its path. Where the fear has gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
I never want to hold myself up as the poster child of the successful mother-businesswoman. It’s a total ‘Gong Show.’ I won’t pretend. When you do so many things, something always suffers. You just can’t be great at everything.
It was total naivety that got me to Hollywood. I thought it was going to happen straight away. I told myself ‘give it 5 years, there’s no way I’ll be here after that if it doesn’t happen’. Cut to ten years later!
When I was coming up with the Hal Hartley films, I was cast as a no one. I had no name visibility. I was working at a downtown post-performance-art, avant garde theater company and doing a couple things on television. But I was a total unknown.
I don’t wilteasily, and a director can’t either. He’s the captain of the ship and he’s got to be in total control. He also has to have respect for the people he’s working for. From being an actor and being on a set my whole life, I’m very comfortable there. And I’m not afraid.
As we move towards 8 or 10 billion people on the planet, there’s a little less gold per capita. Each one of us will continue to be fighting over an ever smaller percentage of total resources. This is not a happy thought.
I think even if I did the researchmentionedabove, it would be a total waste of money because if those people don’t believe in the testimonials, they won’t believe in the research at all. They would say that I made it all up. So why waste money?
My total year’s income from working as hard as I possibly could from writing went from like $30 one year to about $70 the next year. And it made me realize that maybe you couldn’t really pay the rent that way.

Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.
I actually started making tanktops under the name KittyMoon many, many years ago, but I just didn’t have the time to fully devote to it. Now that we don’t go on the road as much, I have a better ability to focus on a line; that’s why I started Total Skull.
People think that you upload a video, and it goes viral, and then you’re a YouTube star, and I’m like, ‘Nah, no.’ In total, with all of the channels I’ve done, I’ve uploaded anywhere from 400 to 1,000 videos to the Internet, and each one of those takes a whole day to make.
‘Spectrum‘ is in part a disco song. But we play it hard, and it’s a real euphoric, wailing tune. It’s kind of like a total house anthem, in a way, but it seems to be going down really well. We’ve got all the grunge kids going mad for disco house raves.
Yes, it’s a man’s world, but that’s all right because they’re making a total mess of it. We’re chipping away at their control, taking the parts we want. Some women think it’s a difficulttask, but it’s not.
Nobody can be whatever they want to be. No kid can do whatever they want to do. It’s a total lie. But they have the right to try and do whatever they want to do. That’s their right, to aim to do whatever they want to do.

I’m 5-feet-9, I have a deepvoice, and I have a way with a line. What can I do about it? I can’t stay home waiting for something different. I think it’s a total waste of energy worrying about typecasting.
If I’d been on the Remain side I would have tried to have seen the best in Europe and tried to explain that. Instead, what they’ve done is endlessly try and talk up what they see as the weaknesses of Britain and they aren’t there. That’s a total mistake.

Polly Berrien Berends

Richard Parks Bland
The total number of people that do a job that has the same description as mine in the entire world is fewer than 10. There’s a lot of effort looking for life in space – that’s a lot of what NASA does, but they’re not necessarily looking for the kind of life that can hold up its side of a conversation.
The rich pay more in total taxes now than ever before – ever. It’s true. Just like it’s true that when the rich are convinced they’re going to be taxed more, they spend less. And when the top few percenters don’t spend, there goes all your spending, because they account for half of all retail spending.
Yeah, I’m a geek. I read sci-fi and I watch sci-fi films. I love my computer and I love to fix it. I’m a total nerd. I literally am a 12-year-old geeky boy trapped in a 32-year-old woman’s body.
Total immersion in and saturation with the Savior‘s gospel are essential steps in the process of being born again.

I think everyone can recognize the one-upmanship and the competition that go on wherever you are, especially among groups where the women don’t have to hold down office jobs and instead get in a total snit about who won the longest carrotcontest or took first prize for summer chutney in the August fete.
Having grown up so familiar with creating a pleasingfacade, I now end up compelled to reveal things inside and say, ‘Okay, now you really see me. Do you still love me?’ And then it’s never enough; it always has to be total self-revelation.
Syriandictator Bashar al-Assad belongs to the small Alawite sect and is therefore considered a heretic by many Sunnis; al-Assad runs a secular regime, and therefore he is considered by Sunni militants to be an apostate, and he is inflicting a total war on his Sunni population.
The more alone I am, the more focused I can get. I’ve written things with people, some of which I liked and others I think are total travesties. Collaborating is trying to make a piece of music and get someone else to come up with the ideas. What’s the fun of that?

Corn is already the most subsidized crop in America, raking in a total of $51 billion in federal handouts between 1995 and 2005 – twice as much as wheatsubsidies and four times as much as soybeans.

As a reader, I appreciate a world that feelsunsettled and also visceral, inhabitable, so that’s a quality I try and bring to my own work. In this way, dislocation and precision make total sense to me as a unit.
One of the things that we’re missing from our political dialogue right now is the idea that the United States is a home. It is more than an accountingsheet. It is more than the sum of its G.D.P., its total tax collections, or its total outlays. America is a family.
If the goal of the DOT’s rule is to prevent companies from deceivingpassengers about the total cost of their ticket, why is the department mandating that airlines hide the taxes, surcharges and government fees in the fine print?

Alfred de Vigny

I wanted to be the best street fighter in Houston, Texas. And I thought if I got a trophy or two, I’d go back home, and everyone would be afraid of me. I had one fight in ’67, the first one. In ’68 of October, I was an Olympic gold-medalist, a dream come true, with a total of 25 boxingmatches.

I am a perfectionist. This job is a total ego thing in a way. To be a designer and say, ‘This is the way they should dress; this is the way their homes should look; this is the way the world should be.’ But then, that’s the goal: world domination through style.
I don’t think that the total creation took place in six days as we now measure time. If we can confirm, say, the Big Bang theory, that doesn’t at all cause me to question my faith that God created the Big Bang.
Maybe there’s a perception of me as grumpy old bugger who suffers from depression. It’s a total misconception. I don’t think of myself as any grumpier than the next person. I’m not even grumpy first thing in the morning.
People like to stir up the fashion vs. costume world, and I think what they mean by ‘too costumey’ is that it’s too much, or not real enough for everyday wear. You couldn’t say that about John Galliano’s shows, right? I mean, they’re awesome, and they’re total costume.
Well, you know the old line – to be nominated is what it’s all about. I think that I’ve done pretty well – I’ve had about 46, or 47 nominations from my movies, and my films have won about 12 awards in total, so I don’t really have any complaints.
I love Michel Roux, Jr., and James Martin – the chefs who are experts in their own right, like Rick Stein on fish. But I don’t watch them very much because I don’t think it’s fair for my husband to be in a total food environment all the time! So we watch programmes about gardening more.
‘Steve Jobs’ is my seventh movie. I believe, if you added them up, I don’t think there is more than a total of 10 minutes that takes place in a person’s home. They’re all in offices, courtrooms, laboratories, things like that.
There’s a game called Checkout where there’s groceryitems and it’s how much you think the manufacturer’s suggested retail price is and we add up your total, then your total has to be within $2 of the regular total. I don’t think I could ever win that game.
To be functionally fluent in a language, for instance, in most cases you need about 1,200 words.

If we just let our vision of the world go forth, and we embrace it entirely, and we don’t try to piece together clever diplomacy but just wage a total war, our children will sing great songs about us years from now.
We are a total of our sum parts, right? I came from a family of very strong women – black women. And if I go back as far as my great grandmothers, there was always that love and the ability to be nurturing. Then I grew up in a household where my father was the one who was more affectionate with me.
Writing songs is a profession; so it’s not an attempt to take things from my interactions with other people and for some reason give them to a total stranger to listen to. I find it offensive to hear other people do that.

When my children were young, I was very cocky. I thought I could maintain total control.
I was, like, a total cliched ’80s child. I had Barbies, obviously, as well as My Little Ponies and Cabbage Patch Kids, but I used to destroy them. I used to draw all over their faces and cut off their hair.

It’s been helping grow the brand; and more importantly, it’s been drivingviewing hours relative to how else we would spend the money.
My personal view is that such total planning by the state is an absolute good and not simply a relative good… I do not myself think of the attitude I take as deriving from Marx – though this undoubtedly will be suggested – but from Fichte and Hegel.
If you want total security, go to prison. There you’re fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking… is freedom.

Sheryl Lee Ralph
I have seen such an immense change from the total repression and criminality of homosexuality in my lifetime. It does make me much more buoyant and optimistic about the future. If that change can occur in that time there’s hope for many other changes.
In Britain, it’s bred into you, the idea that you can’t really change anything, so why bother. When I went to school in America, it was the total opposite view – you, as an individual, can change anything and everything. It’s how you’re raised.
There’s design, and there’s art. Good design is total harmony. There’s no better designer than nature – if you look at a branch or a leaf, it’s perfect. It’s all function. Art is different. It’s about emotion. It’s about suffering and beauty – but mostly suffering!
If you’re trying to portray that I take massive business decisions in pubs and bars, then that is total crap. It is not the norm, otherwise I’d have to live in a pub because I take business decisions all day, every day.

What I’m trying to do is get a change in the mindset so people move from a level of mere tolerance to total acceptance and eventually to celebratediversity. If you feel comfortable with one another, it doesn’t matter whether we live in which neighbourhood but we can interact with one another freely. It’s a mindset.
If education is always to be conceived along the same antiquated lines of a mere transmission of knowledge, there is little to be hoped from it in the bettering of man’s future. For what is the use of transmitting knowledge if the individual’s total development lags behind?

The ‘Total Information Awareness’ project is truly diabolical – mostly because of the legal changes which have made it possible in the first place. As a consequence of the Patriot Act, government now has access to all sorts of private and commercial databases that were previously off limits.
I argue that the resurrection was not the Great Resuscitation. It was a total transformation. I just don’t accept the black-and-white thinking that goes along with needing to regard the gospels are literally true.
One of the best things that ever happened to me was Rocky Horror being a total flop in New York as a play. I mean, it was a disaster, and it was the night of the long knives as far as the critics were concerned.
Americans have always prizedindividuality – it is part of our national DNA – but America is a community that draws strength from the sum of our people and has always known that the total of that sum is worth far more than its individual parts.
I always knew I wanted to be a character in the movies. When I was growing up, I had to have a lot of surgery, and I spent a lot of time recovering at home and in the hospital. Watching movies took me away from my own problems and gave me a total escape.
A lot of times, that’s hard to capture: what you sound like in person versus what you sound like on record. If I had total control, I would do a lot of the old songs – not only my songs but Sam Cooke songs, Luther Vandross, melody songs. That’s what I would really do if I had an opportunity to do a record.
If I wanted to have total control and be a dictator, I would do ice sculpture in my basement. If I want to make a movie, I’m going to work with 500 people, and I will have to work with their strength and their weakness.
I don’t think I ever got the hang of the writers’ room. I love collaborating with people, but I really do my best work alone, and I think I would want to – if I did something again, I think I’d want to take total ownership the way Aaron Sorkin or David Kelley does.
My two big date deal breakers are someone with no sense of humor and someone who chews badly. I will never be with someone who never laughs or someone who chews disgustingly, so if either of those things are detected on a date – it’s a total deal breaker.
I am absolutely opposed to a national ID card. This is a total contradiction of what a free society is all about. The purpose of government is to protect the secrecy and the privacy of all individuals, not the secrecy of government. We don’t need a national ID card.
One of my best friends, Mike, had a kid. Just seeing him go through it all was inspiring. It would be so nice to care about someone more than yourself. And Mike is a total delinquent, so if he can do it, I figure I can, too.
Only flies have true halteres. In fact, the scientific term for flies, ‘diptera,’ means ‘two wings.’ Most insects, including bees, have two pairs of wings for a total of four. In flies, the hindwing pairs have been transformed through evolution into the halteres.
If we didn’t want to upsetanyone, we would make films about sewing, but even that could be dangerous. But I think finally, in a film, it is how the balance is and the feelings are. But I think there has to be those contrasts and strong things within a film for the total experience.
If you have total freedom to design, you won’t get anything interesting. So I give myself restraints in order to kind of push myself through, to create something new. It’s the torture that I give myself, the pain and the struggle that I go through.
In our personal and professional lives, we are constantly hit with one adversity after the other, most of which we have no control over. But the four things we have total control over is how we react, how we adapt, how we breathe, and how we take action.
Growing up I was a total movie-holic, but I always wanted to play the role that Clark Gable was playing or Spencer Tracy was playing. I was really never interested in the parts that women were playing. I found the parts that guys were playing were so much more interesting.
I love the trilogy form. I like the idea that you can establish a character in book one. And then in the second part, you can take the characters down to their darkest point. And then in the third part, you have total freedom either to give them redemption – or just to kill them.
On the first training session Pogba had with Juventus, the players were laughing. We were not laughing for any other reason than we were just in total disbelief that this player with so much obvious ability was able to leave the club the size of Manchester United for free – and I think Juventus are still laughing.
There’s a total separation between the federal government and the people. So running for president was an attempt on my part to get people to care enough to go vote. But people just don’t bother. And that’s why it’s not working.
Writing a novel is an incredibly free experience. One puts one’s self in a narrativemode. You can go off in any direction – the past, the future, or go laterally, or include one’s own beliefs. It’s total freedom.
I always wanted to be a scientist, I always thought I’d be a scientist, that was the narrative I was carrying around. I worked in a neurosciencelab as an undergraduate and then after, almost five years in total, but I realized I just wasn’t good at science. I didn’t have the discipline for it.
Upon the whole it was a Glorious day-Our men are in the Spirits-and I am confident we shall give them a total defeat the next Action; which is at no great distance.

Every parent in America has the total power to control all television programming that is dispatched to their home today.
We get the exciting result that the total energy of the universe is zero. Why this should be so is one of the great mysteries – and therefore one of the important questions of physics. After all, what would be the use of studying physics if the mysteries were not the most important things to investigate?
You are the sum total of everything you’ve ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot – it’s all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.
We have to rethink our whole energy approach, which is hard to do because we’re so dependent on oil, not just for fuel but also plastic. If plastic vanished, there would be total chaos. We have to think quite carefully about using oil and its derivatives, because it’s not going to be around forever.
I dream of a collaboration that would finally be total, in which the librettist would often think as a composer and the composer as a librettist.
When I’m on stage, it’s a little world I’ve created where I’m sort of the thing, so I have total control over everything that happens. When we’re improvising, I’m with someone I totally trust. I know things are going to work out. I don’t have those guarantees in life. There are no consequences on stage.
To be clear, I normally climb with a rope and partner. Free-soloing makes up only a small percentage of my total climbing. But when I do solo, I manage the risk through careful preparation. I don’t solo anything unless I’m sure I can do it.
