There may be people in my audience who may not agree with me on some particular issue – you know, say, as a gun owner, they may not agree with me, or, you know, someone may not agree with me on a gay marriage topic. Any of those things. But those shouldn’t be the reasons you listen to my music.
I do not agree with Thomas Wolfe… about anything. You can go home again as long as you don’t expect home to be what it was when you left it. Or you don’t expect yourself to be what you were when you left home.
I think if people who are attacking me or against me, if they would just watch one of my films, they would – they may not agree with me politically on all the things I’m saying. But they will know at the end of the film that I love this country and that I have a heart. And they’ll have a good laughthroughout the film.
Although it’s painful at the time, most of the things that people have said about us negatively – some of them are true and you can work on them, and the ones that you don’t agree with, you don’t work on.
Paul Ryan whipped the votes to get fast trackTradePromotion Authority to sell our jobs to foreign countries. He absolutely worked on that. Paul Ryan owns it. He can’t say he doesn’t agree with it, because when he did that, that contract was already written. It was already set up – that treaty was already set up.
I know Jim Cornette says the reason that I’m successful now is because I changed my attitude, and I must be listening to what people tell me now, and I used to not listen to him. But the thing is, I used to not listen to him or question his methods because I didn’t agree with him, and I didn’t share his vision.
Patriotism is a love of country. If you love your country, you should love your countrymen and women. It doesn’t mean you always agree with them or even like them. It is understanding that we have interwovendestiny.
No matter what you think about the Iraq war, there is one thing we can all agree on for the next days – we have to salute the courage and bravery of those who are risking their lives to vote and those brave Iraqi and American soldiers fighting to protect their right to vote.
When you meet a head of state, and you say, ‘What is your most precious natural resource?’ they will not say children at first, and then when you say, ‘children,’ they will pretty quickly agree with you.
People believe you have to secure the border; whether you’re doing it with a wall that keeps getting higher because of the crazy things the Mexicans say, if you go that DonaldTrumproute, whatever route you go, everyone agrees in our movement that you have to secure the border.
When the government is handed over to the Iraqi Council on 30 June, many have declared, oh, the Americans must never leave because civil unrest may erupt. Well, I agree, we cannot abruptly depart, but Iraq needs to step up to the plate on 30 June.
I’m manifestly not the same as Alex Salmond. I’m a different gender, for example… I’m being flippant, but maybe this is a partly gender-driven difference: I’m very keen that we find a way of reaching out across party divides to find things we agree on, as well as the things we disagree on.
When it comes to raising civilizedkids there are no hard rules, but there are two things on which most parents agree: Boys are generally wilder than girls, and adolescents are wilder than kids of any other age. If you’ve got an adolescentboy, you’re in the sweet spot for trouble.
The topic of trust is an important factor in all matters of the heart – and here’s why. Men lie to women. Women lie to men. And most people agree that some lying is even necessary – to avoidpetty squabbles and to grease the wheels of a relationship.
With theatre, we all agree to suspend our disbelief about so many things, but not about race. It’s totally OK to have one actorplayingfiveroles – people are willing to believe that. But they won’t believe it if there’s a black or an Asiankid who has white parents. What does that say about us?
I proud to say that most of the Iranians love me and love my work. I love them, and I always have them in my mind when I work. There are few people who do not agree with me, but truly, I don’t care. I call myself an actress with a mission.
The place where we don’t agree is on whether there should be some restraint on insurancecompanies and whether they should be allowed to run wild. We believe there should be some restraint; some on the other side don’t think so.
And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values, like you work hard for what you want in life. That your word is your bond; that you do what you say you’re going to do. That you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don’t know them and even if you don’t agree with them.
And my point was one I think that you’d agree with, which is there’s no room in America for a black racist, a Latino racist, or a white racist, or an Asian racist, or a Native American racist. Now, we’re either color blind or we’re not color blind.
Success in SiliconValley, most would agree, is more merit-driven than almost any other place in the world. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what sex you are, what politics you support or what color you are. If your idea rocks and you can execute, you can change the world and/or get really, stinking rich.
Paul Ryan and Mr. Trump have had a conversation, and they continue to develop that relationship. They had a great meeting in Washington, D.C., where they talk about what was important to both of them. They agree on many issues.
As CEO, I accept responsibility for the irregularities that have been found in dieselengines and have therefore requested the Supervisory Board to agree on terminating my function as CEO of the Volkswagen Group.
While I would agree that I write about serioussubjects, and that they’re not necessarily the most pleasant subjects or even the most pleasant people, as a writer I just think about the humorousaspects of these things – that’s what keeps me going when I’m writing a story.
People don’t understand that I have a great relationship with my parents – like, how that can exist. There isn’t any judgment. They don’t necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don’t necessarily agree with everything they do.
I’m a Republican. I’m a formerRed Sox. I have a nasty habit of talking – a lot – about anything anyone asks me and totally unconcerned about giving you my opinion. You will never question where I stand – right or wrong, agree or disagree – on anything.
Stories are really important to people and can really change the way they understand, and even live, their lives. As such, I don’t agree much with people who say, ‘Calm down, it’s just a story.’
If we’re picking people to draw out of their own conscience and experience a ‘new’ Constitution, we should not look principally for good lawyers. We should look to people who agree with us. When we are in that mode, you realize we have rendered the Constitution useless.
On some level, there’s a limit to what the government really worries about when it comes to a guy like Ai Weiwei, who’s talking to a limited audience of people. He’s talking to people who more or less already agree with him.
I don’t agree with everything Madonna‘s done but she is fearless.
I’m telling the story, and if I can’t tell the story, I’m not going to sing it. And if I don’t agree with the story, and if I got to sing something that portrays me as something I’m not, then I’m not going to sing it either. I didn’t even want to sing ArethaFranklin‘s ‘Chain of Fools.’
I do not personally agree with some of the positions that Mr. Gonzales has advocated, but that should come as no surprise, because I do not agree with many of the proposals made by the man who nominated him, President Bush.
All observers not laboring under hallucinations of the senses are agreed, or can be made to agree, about facts of sensible experience, through evidence toward which the intellect is merelypassive, and over which the individual will and character have no control.
If you knewmy life and understood where I came from, you would agree that Auntie Anne’s, Inc. is a modern day business miracle.
Anne F. Beiler
What does it mean to be an American? While each of us may have our own specific answer to that question, we likely can agree on the basic principles of America: freedom, equal opportunity, and rights accompanied by responsibilities.
Anyone who agrees to be interviewed must decide where to draw the line between what is public and what is private. But the line can shift, depending on who is asking the questions. What puts someone on guard isn’t necessarily the fear of being ‘found out.’ It sometimes is just the fear of being misunderstood.
History shows the power-grab in every religion once it gets organised. And then it’s people making you do things that you don’t agree with and setting the rules. But it does mean something to me to believe that we are not alone – the human animal is quite a scary thing, left on its own.
People don’t have to agree with me. They can say, ‘My gosh, I can’t believe I’m listening to this guy. I can’t disagree with him more.’ But at least they know that I’m going to fight for things that I believe in. And I don’t need to be in formaloffice to do that.
I completely agree that a sound sleep is the best beauty product. Sound sleep, one of the most important but underrated thing, helps to make you more beautiful. I can never understand how people work so hard that they miss out on their sleep.
They say not everyone can be MGR. I agree. MGR is a revolutionary. Not in a 1,000 years can there be another MGR. If anyone says he will be the next MGR, he is insane. But I have the confidence that I can give the government that MGR gave to the people of Tamil Nadu.
I have always loved Reese Witherspoon and Amy Adams as role models – I read all their interviews and agree with the fundamentals of how they manage the limelight and also how they look and carry themselves. A huge part of beauty is how you carry yourself and how you deal with certain situations.
Originally, after ‘Tambourine’ came out, another record was supposed to come out, but I had issues with my record label at the time, which was Interscope. We couldn’t agree on a record, so that took some time. I had to leave them and find a new label.
Any film that you see that has any progressivespirits that is made by any people of color or a woman is a triumph in and of itself. Whether you agree with it or not. Something that comes with some point of view and some personal perspective from a woman or a person of color is a unicorn.
I’m not defined by where I came from. I never took part in the rules and hatred that sometimes go along with religion. But if my parents are happy with what they believe, then I’m happy to stay out of their way. We agree to disagree.
I have lived in Toledo, Ohio, off and on throughout my entire life, and I have plenty of friends who are union members. Sometimes we agree politically and sometimes not, but it has never kept us from being friends.
Usually if nobody hates a piece, nobody loves it, either; and a magazine which sets itself the goal of provoking thought is not doing its job if everybody agrees with what it does.
I agree with just about everyone in the reform debate when they say ‘If you like what you have, you should be able to keep it.’ But the truth is that none of the health reform bills making their way through Congress actually delivers on that promise.
It’s not a radical statement: all of us should agree that we want to make sure that weapons stay out of the hands of people that could use them to hurt others, especially after the tragedies we’ve seen in Charleston, Newtown, Wilkinsburg and too many other communities.
Although I agree that wild horses are a symbol of the American West, I also believe that it is the responsibility of Congress to ensure that these animals are managed, protected, and controlled in an effective manner.
I get very frustrated by this term ‘genre exercise.’ I mean, what exactly is that? Genre is not really relevant when you are writing a song; hopefully you are doing it to explore something, to create something, and I don’t agree that any of my albums are genre exercises.
EddieMurphy said once in an interview that nothing is offensive if it’s funny. I sort of agree with that, but if something’s funny and you’re the subject of it, sometimes it’s more offensive. If someone’s insulting you, you want them to sound like an idiot.
I have a lot of reason to believe, as we saw in the 2012 election, most Americans don’t agree with the extremists on any side of an issue, but there needs to continue to be an effort to find common ground, or even take it to higher ground on behalf of the future.
I’ve had a lot of bosses that I didn’t agree with, but the worst boss was very much me myself. So, I can’t let myself slack off, and if I do slacking off, I’m the one that’s yelling at myself. I’ve worked with a lot of different employers, and none of them have been as aggressive as I have been.
I agree when others say I am underrated as an actor… When you give super-hit films, then only you are considered as a good actor. At least, that is how it is there in our industry. I think you need to be successful to be appreciated.
When you take a stand out of deep conviction, people know. They may not even agree, but they ask, ‘Do I want someone who is willing to take a hard stand and someone I can trust to do that when the chips are down?’ They want that.
Even though I don’t agree with either SarahPalin or Michele Bachmann on virtually anything, I do think the unique scrutiny – because of their gender and highlighting the potential conflict between them is a product of the media’s desire for juicy storylines. I think it’s inappropriate.
When people are in love, I don’t see anything wrong with it in the world. If they choose to live their lives and get married, why should we interfere? A lot of people don’t agree with me, but that’s how I feel.
I don’t want you to misunderstand me. You might get up and state what you believe to be Seventh-day Adventism, and I might not agree with everything you said.
John Harvey Kellogg
Why do Planned Parenthood and their allies only ‘trust women’ and only want to hear women’s stories when they agree with Planned Parenthood? Why do they work to silence any women who disagree with them? Don’t our stories matter?
We all feel that if we have a crazy idea that might get laughed at, there’s nothing wrong with seeing if there’s a crazy writer out there who agrees with us and can take it to a crazy network and somehow bring something that’s a little bitdaft and edgy to life.
We must all work together if we’re going to solve the nation’s maternal health crisis, and Democrats and Republicans agree that helping ensure mothers and babies are healthy and whole keeps our families strong and helps our communities thrive.
Jesus said, ‘Render untoCaesar that which is Caesar’s,’ and part of that was to go to war, protecting whatever nation was under control of the king. I wouldn’t agree with any interpretation of Scripture that was used to say that a man or a woman shouldn’t protect their families.
I care more about the country than what happens to me. But we can’t allow the law to become a political weapon or agree to scare people away from standing up for their rights, no matter how good the deal. I’m not going to be part of that.
My deal is have a flat, simple tax. And – Americans want – Americans I hope – aspire to be – be wealthy. I hope they aspire to have a better quality of life. And we have this class warfare that’s going on now. And I don’t agree with that. I’m interested in people getting to work.
Listen, we all have to agree that there is too much litigation going on in this world. But every year it seems to multiply tenfold. Why can’t we stop it? Well, it’s because the lawmakers in Congress and the Senate are almost all lawyers, too!
In this kind of situation, we tend to cling to his convictions, we believe that, by magic, we are going to recover. Then we agree to drive less good cars and we are fatally more exposed. It is what finallyhappened to me with Ensign.
You don’t have to agree with my vote, but you need to at least understand how I came to my vote.
I don’t agree that everyone should agree with everyone’s lifestyle. I think that some people aren’t going to agree, but I think that when you’re mean and when you ridicule people it’s a sign of your own insecurities.
I had creative control over my character, which means if they wanted me to do something that I didn’t agree with, then I wouldn’t do it. If it was good for the show, then I had no problem. If it was demeaning to the character and wasn’t adding a positive light to the show, then I can guarantee that I wouldn’t do it.
Economists agree about economics – and that’s a science – and they disagree about economic policy because that’s a value judgment… I’ve had profound disagreements on policy with the famous Milton Friedman. But, on economics, we agree.
I’m a born-again Christian – if everybody can agree what that means. I believe in Jesus. I believe that He died for my sins.
People may believe that there can be a society where dissent is not permitted, but which is nonetheless not a fear society because everyone agrees with one another and therefore no one wants to dissent.
Many people agree with me that many things are not clear in football these days and it is not something people who watch football deserve. The situation will be the same while football is run by people who do not understand football.
The older supermodels sometimes don’t agree with the fact there is a new generation of models. We’re not saying we’re supermodels. I’d rather people look at us as businesspeople, and, yes, modeling is our business right now, but we’re not trying to take anybody‘s spot, and we’re not trying to discredit the past.
I have always thought – and a lot of people won’t agree with this – that we’re incredibly driven by fear, basically. Aren’t we? It’s awful to be frightened. I think it’s a very strong, very powerful thing, fear.
In the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works a full time job should have to live in poverty. That’s a fundamental value proposition, an article of faith in our country that I know an overwhelmingmajority of Americans agree on.
I have never pretended to be a legalscholar, but when scores of lawyers are lining up to agree with the Supreme Court that the president has the power to make choices when it comes to whom to deport and whom to let stay, then I tend to agree with them.
Free speech is against governments, not against the NBA. So the players and coaches and indeed owners have been fined for their speech, which is costly rather than free. I sort of acknowledge that there is not free speech when you agree to work in the NBA.
You have to create characters – certainly in series TV – who people engage with. They don’t have to be nice; you don’t have to agree with them. But they do have to be compulsively watchable and believable and human, and you want to know what happens to them.
Racism is taught in the home. We agree on that? Well, it’s very hard to teach racism to a teenager who’s listening to rap music and who idolizes, say, Snoop Dogg. It’s hard to say, ‘That guy is less than you.’ The kid is like, ‘I like that guy, he’s cool. How is he less than me?
It’s a professional military. You sign up and agree to allow your countrymen to use your life as they see fit for the next four years. And I think we all should have a greater role in ensuring that we use those lives wisely.
We need to focus on issues where we all agree, which is spending discipline and control and making sure that government, both in Springfield and in Washington, doesn’t take more from your family budget.
I think most polling shows that most Americans agree that when it comes to employment that, you know, people should be really judged by, you know, their competency and not, you know, who it is they choose to love or who they’re in a relationship with.
My parents didn’t agree with what was going on, you know, with the communists coming in, Fidel Castro. I didn’t see the reason why I needed to go back there and be a part of that exhibition.
Everything’s pretty consistent in the industry, you know. There’s a couple of naysayers, whatever, people who don’t agree. But for the most part a lot of people believe in the new class of MC’s that coming to the game.
As a global society, we do not have to agree, endorse or condone the lifestyle choices of others. However, history has taught us that we equally cannot and should not excuse those who would hide behind religion or misuse God’s word to justify bigotry and persecution.
I don’t have to agree with everything a candidate does to support him.
In general, I agree with Jacob Grimm and feel that we ought to permit changes and uncontrolled growth in language. Even though that also allows potentially threatening new words to develop, language needs the chance to constantlyrenew itself.
Regardless of your political affiliation, most people agree that Ronald Reagan was an American icon. He was a president of national significance and for that reason he deserves an honor in the nation’s capital.
The only thing we don’t do together is get in front of an actor and show any indecision at all about what we think. We don’t always agree, so we meet privately, then one or the other will approach the actor.
Ought we not to ask the media to agree among themselves a voluntarycode of conduct, under which they would not say or show anything which could assist the terrorists’ morale or their cause while the hijack lasted.
I think my clients would tell you I’m a problem solver. I’m not there to agree with people. I’m there to articulate a point of view. Am I insistent and tenacious? Absolutely. I could not get this work done if I was not.
The US constitution’s First Amendment rights only cover Americans, but I believe that in a democracy the competition of ideas and free speech should combat beliefs that it does not agree with – more speech and debate, not censorship.
I’m not sure I agree with the thesis, because I think that even though something grotesque or gross has been part of film since way back, what we accept or what we can get away with on the screen is broader now.
Equal rights for women. I agree with that concept. But we will never be free, we will never obtain equality, until we stop letting ourselves become pawns of the abortion industry. Our freedom depends on our rejection of abortion.
In Morocco, there is an insistence on authority. Children are not encouraged to speak up in front of their parents. My parents were not like this. I was the kind of girl who could tell her father, ‘No, what you are saying is totally untrue, and I don’t agree with you.’
If explicit metadata is a real problem, it raises problems that just can’t be solved. It’s not that we’re not good at it; it’s the problems cannot be solved because we’re not going to agree about these deep questions of how we organize.
I write what I think is funny and I write from a sense of popping a balloon or a sense of injustice, whether it’s about yourself, or whether it’s about something else. It’s my worldview; it doesn’t mean that everybody has to agree with it.
Based on the people l’ve spoken to, I think the impression is: Is America safer from Al Qaeda? Yes. Is America weaker as a nation because we have overspent and over-focused on Al Qaeda? Yes. I think that would be the conclusion that people seem to have come to and that I tend to agree with.
I don’t think we need to agree with anyone in order to love the person. The command for Christians to love the other person, to be benevolent and beneficent toward them, is independent of what the other believes.
It’s finding those nonsensicalpieces of conversation that we all do all the time. We do all the time. When we’re talking on the telephone, there are arguments with people who agree when they both think that they disagree.
It just seems to be a human trait to want to protect the speech of people with whom we agree. For the First Amendment, that is not good enough. So it is really important that we protect First Amendment rights of people no matter what side of the line they are on.
The problem is that in order to publish a book in mainland China, you have to agree to be subject to censorship. That’s the nature of the system. I don’t challenge that system on its face. It’s their system. But as an author, I have a choice to make whether I’ll participate or I won’t.
Everyone agrees that animals should not be exposed to unnecessary pain. But neither should scientists be hamstrung by the requirement to use anesthesia in every animal experiment that might cause pain.
My kid is seven years old and is learning to read and conjugate, but I don’t agree with that kind of education because I feel that the concepts are not contextualized… it’s interesting to try to make my kid a reflective boy, rather than just a repetitive boy, even if he doesn’t agree with me.
One of my favorite philosophical tenets is that people will agree with you only if they already agree with you. You do not change people’s minds.
My mom was the happiest person when I first got a Telugu offer. She told me that the people here love cinema and will also love you. I have to agree with her.
Before any American points a finger at President Putin and calls him nasty names, they should recognize that a lot of Americans agree with Putin on his stance against homosexual and transgender people.
Maybe some people will not agree, but I like to eat sardines in the morning for breakfast. I think some people will have a hard time eating sardines in oliveoil or pickled sardines for breakfast. I guess that is why I am still single.
No two children learn in the same way. While we might agree that every American eight-year-old should be able to read and multiply, beyond those basics, there are few reasons to make every student follow the same path.
Whether or not you agree with Ayn Rand – and I have certain issues with some of her beliefs – the woman can tell a story. I mean, the novel as an art form is just in full florid bloom in ‘Atlas Shrugged.’ It’s an unbelievable story. The characters are so compelling, and what she’s saying is mind-expanding.
When top scientists and psychologists talk about what’s important to our overall wellbeing and how satisfied we are with our lives, the only thing that they all agree on is that social relationships are probably the single best predictor of our overall happiness.
Americans are from Mars, Europeans are from Venus: they agree on little and understand each other less and less.
Today, we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working. We may not agree with all that North Vietnam is doing, but they are living in peace. I would look for a better human rights record for North Vietnam, but they are living side by side.
The thing that ‘Glee‘ has successfully done that no other TV show has is that they’re just honest – but they don’t tell you what’s right or wrong. They don’t tell you what to agree with or what to believe in.
There’s a lot of talk coming from Citigroup about how Dodd-Frank isn’t perfect. Let me say this to anyone who is listening at Citi: I agree with you. Dodd-Frank isn’t perfect. It should have broken you into pieces.
I was born in Mexico, I grew up in Mexico, and along the way, I learned to love Mexico. I think anyone who has stepped foot on this land – not to mention all Mexican people – will agree that it’s not difficult to love Mexico.
Patriotism is love of country. But you can’t love your country without loving your countrymen and countrywomen. We don’t always have to agree, but we must empower each other, we must find the common ground, we must build bridges across our differences to pursue the common good.
Any time scientists disagree, it’s because we have insufficientdata. Then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves the problem. Either I’m right, or you’re right, or we’re both wrong. And we move on. That kind of conflict resolution does not exist in politics or religion.
I’m quite contrary. If people agree on something, I tend to gravitate the other way by my nature. I don’t like to be told what to do. I think it goes back to school. I like to do things I want to do and I really don’t like doing what I don’t want to do.
The sugar tax is fine. I agree with that. But I think it probably doesn’t go too far. But then, I work on ‘The Great British Bake Off.’ We make cakes with sugar and butter. I can’t be too critical. It is like anything in life: it is all about moderation.
God help us from those who believe that they are the sole possessors of truth. How we manage at times to agree willingly to become prisoners within our own minds and souls of beliefs and ideas on which we can never be flexible.
I think anyone who suffers from chronic pain can agree with this – you feel this great significance. What I wanted to capture was that significance, and as a matter of fact I think that’s one of the lyrics on ‘Conflict,’ on the split. I touch on the significance, and really it’s a selfish thing, in an offbeat way.
Every Friday, my dad would rent three videos. Me and my brother would ask for something with guns or fighting, but my dad would say, ‘Come on, think about it.’ He’d choose more involving films like ‘Pulp Fiction,’ and at the end of the night, we’d agree that they were great.
The conventionalwisdom with David Mamet is, you do not change a word. And that agrees with me. If you want to change any of David’s words, it’s like wanting to change the iambic pentameter in Shakespeare – you should do something else.
I’ve been around Congress long enough to know there are issues we may never see eye-to-eye from the opposite aisle, but we should all agree that our job is to move America forward and benefit the people.
We can agree that keeping serious criminals in prison is an effective means of preserving public safety, but we must also recognize that the axiom of ‘putting people in jail and throwing away the key’ does not apply to all offenders universally and can actually be counterproductive.
So the proposition that the ideal parents for any child are its biological parents is a statement with which we can all agree in the generality, but which does not apply, for one reason or another, in many particular circumstances.
I began singing in dive bars and really small clubs. I dragged my piano down the stairs, and I went down the street with my keyboard, and I would go to every different dive bar that I could get to agree to let me play. I’d call and pretend I was Lady Gaga‘s manager.
I think because I’ve been working in front of audiences for so many years, I’m able to take in the input, good or bad, and just say, ‘This is the part I agree with that you’re saying, and these are the parts I don’t agree with.’
I mean, everyone agrees with stress tests for banks. I mean that’s clear. But banks should do that on their own. And they should worry about their own capital functioning. That’s what they should do. It shouldn’t be a government function.
Like many Americans, I’ve always been intrigued by Bill Clinton. I obviously didn’t always agree with him – enjoyed running against his legacy in 2000, when Al Gore was his designated successor, but I don’t have anything negative I would say about Bill Clinton.
The definition of political cinema is one I don’t agree with, because every film, every show, is typically political in nature. Political cinema is simply the brainchild of bad journalists.
Gian Maria Volonte
Yes – I agree that ‘Love Foolish’ is very similar to ‘Make Me Go,’ however, the message is different. ‘Love Foolish’ follows a story of someone who falls in love, whereas, ‘Make Me Go’ is a story of someone who wants to find love!
I agree with Balzac and 19th-century writers, black and white, who say, ‘I write for money.’ Yes, I think everybody should be paid handsomely; I insist on it, and I pay people who work for me, or with me, handsomely.
The people that you work with, the organizations that are committed to the same objectives. If they know that you’re in it together, and you’re working towards the same objectives, and you agree on how to do more with less, you can actually have a greater impact.
Well football teams are perhaps easier to control than political parties, I’m sure the Prime Minister would agree with me, but yeah I think every team needs discipline and a sense of self-belief and that’s important, that’s what leadership’s all about.
We all agree that we’ve got to bring these terrorists to justice and to make sure that they’re never allowed to perpetrate such an evil act as they did. And so all of us are dealing with that. We know that the President has the authority to go to war under the War Powers Act.
When you’re acting in a movie, you never consider the reception of it. It’s impossible to predict how something will be received. Even if you think it’s the greatest thing in the world, other people might not like it. Or agree with it.
The right of free speech cannot be parceled out based on whether we want to hear what the speaker has to say or whether we agree with those views. It means, quite often, tolerating the expression of views that we find distasteful, perhaps even repugnant.
What I tell young couples that are getting married is: you’re going to have quarrels, and on some things, you’re just going to have to agree to disagree. And when you go to bed at night, kiss each other and tell each other that you love each other. Don’t go to bed mad. Life is too short. Keep it simple.
The Bible tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Surely part of loving in this way is trying to understand what another person wants us to understand. I may not understand perfectly and I may not agree, but if I love you I should try to know what it is you wish I could know.
The basic social contract is that citizens agree to follow the law, pay their taxes, and devote their love and loyalty to their country, and in exchange, the nation commits to preserve and protect and serve their interests, safeguard their freedom, and return to them in kind their first allegiance and loyalty.
We have a close, unshakable bond between the United States and Israel, and between the American and Israeli people. We share common values and a commitment to a democratic future for the world, and we are both committed to a two-state solution. But that doesn’t mean that we’re going to agree.
I love oatmeal. To me, it’s not boring. I agree that ordinary oatmeal is very boring, but not the steel-cut Irish kind – the kind that pops in your mouth when you bite into it in little glorious bursts like a sort of gummy champagne.
I think when you’re a fan of music – at least the way I’ve been a fan to artists that have really touched me – you’re with them for the long haul. They might do things that you don’t understand or agree with, but I think I’ve always tried to hold my judgment and give them the space to do what they need to do.
Part of what I love about games is that, even if you’re best friends with somebody, it gives you these sort of moments where you get to interact on a completely different level. You all agree to these abstract rules, but there’s nobody holding a gun to your head.
I accept people for who they are and love them. That doesn’t mean I have to agree or that I have to turn my back on the tenets of my faith and reject the tenets of my faith when it comes to homosexuality.
The idea that all Israelis are villains is a childish idea. Israel is the most deeply divided, argumentative society. You’ll never find two Israelis that agree with one another – it’s hard to find even one who agrees with himself or herself.
When you grumble about a taxi being dirty, people your own age will absolutely agree with you, whereas younger people say, ‘You should be so lucky to have a taxi – I walk to work!’ So I have lots of young friends, who fortunately don’t treat me as a guru, a person that knows all the answers.
If two men on a job agree all the time, then one is useless. If they disagree all the time, then both are useless.

I will not agree to go to war in the Donbass. I know there are a lot of hotheads, especially those who hold rallies and say, ‘Let’s go fight and win it all back!’ But at what price? What is the cost? It’s another story of lives and land. And I won’t do it.
