Dan Wheldon

None of the people I grew up with had identity problems. We all had perfectly marvelous lives.
For me, vision is just about the most important thing. So goggles play a huge role in my sport.

Cecil Taylor
Life can very genuinely and realistically pile things on. It doesn’t dole out the heartache and pain, or joy, perfectly.

Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry.

Kandyse McClure
Usually I am not a conspiracy theorist. I don’t believe in the Bilderbergers as a conspiracy or the Trilateralists. But I am certain that the Communists killed JFK. There is a super great book called ‘Legend‘ by Edward Jay Epstein that makes it all perfectly clear.

For me, to be perfectly honest, the part of my brain that was stimulated by directing was much more exciting than a typical day of acting.

Geezer Butler

I’m perfectly proud of the work I did, looking back at it. I know I’ve had a bit of a revision since my ‘Big Finish’ stories came out.

Shawn Ryan
I have to play everything just perfectly. I can’t take less of myself. I’m strong. I’m prepared.

I am perfectly clear in my mind and in my conscience in respect of freedom of religious principles and beliefs.
The earth’s history over the past several million years is that for every 100,000 years, we go through a dramatic climatic cycle where we get 90,000 years of ice age and 10,000 years of a warm period. I think people today just have the expectation that we deserve a perfectly benign climate forever.

My father had a perfectly good drummer who he had an argument with. So one day, on a Tuesday, my father came in with a cheap pawn shop set of drums and said, ‘Put your foot here, and you kick there, and you play this, and this is the high hat.’ And Friday night, I was playing in a honky-tonk.

I had arrived years ago in Paris and just wanted to be famous, fast. When you’re pretentious like that, and you think you’ve planned everything perfectly, it’s then that everything goes in the opposite way.
Yael Naim
It is very unnatural to dance while playing the violin. I had to practice so hard to learn how to do it, but now it is part of my expression, and it comes naturally. I have to know a song perfectly before I can even begin to move.
I mean… directing is a holy, unpleasant experience, to be perfectly honest.

Doing comedy is very difficult and if you do it perfectly you can do any kind of roles.
Brahmanandam

Everything was very specific and very fitted. I can’t tell you what we went through for this job in regards to full body scans and the prosthetic process that you go through and all that kind of stuff, but everything was done very specifically to fit you perfectly.
Julian McMahon
I am perfectly happy to believe that nobody likes us but the public.
Rudolf Bing
The definition of ‘morbid‘ is an unhealthy preoccupation with death. Unfortunately, there’s no word to mean the perfectly healthy preoccupation with death, which is what I have.
Whatever happened during the French presidential campaign will leave no hard feelings. I perfectly understand why Angela Merkel supported Nicolas Sarkozy because of the action they have taken together, even though I have questioned its results, and because of their shared political sensibility.
I’m perfectly happy complaining, because it’s cathartic, and I’m perfectly happy arguing with people on the Internet because arguing is my favourite pastime – not programming.
Kohli scores so freely. He’s like Joe Root in that before you know it, he’s on 30 off 20 balls. He is also the master of the chase – he calculates so the risks so perfectly.
I want to speak English perfectly. In fact, I want to speak English just like I fight, and, until that moment, I find it very hard to do an interview solely in English.
Now, I am perfectly willing to just enjoy my career by choosing roles simply because I consider them to be a challenge and doing the best possible job I can.
I have fitted perfectly in the team and in the team’s style of play.
The way I looked when I started modelling – I was a skinny schoolgirl, stuffing tissues into my little 32A bra. I wasn’t trying to be that thin; I was perfectly healthy, but still – that look is a total impossibility for women over the age of 20. Fashion has a lot to answer for, doesn’t it?
I think the universe works perfectly.
It obviously matters who gets to be president. And it’s perfectly valid for us media types to advocate for the candidate we think is more qualified, based on our reporting. But the hype has gotten so out of control, it’s become bigger than the presidency itself.
We’re not militant, but there are certain things that are absolutely secret. There was a pilot printed on red paper, and I read everything on my iPad and have a scanner on my desk for these purposes. I scanned in the script, and red paper script scans in perfectly fine.
Sweaters in light hues function perfectly as between-season buffers.
It is perfectly obvious that no one nor any single country can save the world from the horrors of tsunamis, hurricanes, earthquakes and winged influenza.
Richard Reeves
One always has the idea of a stupid man as perfectly healthy and ordinary, and of illness as making one refined and clever and unusual.
I think of myself as naturally idle. The trouble is, the ‘nothing’ that I do every day is not really nothing. I potter. I muck about with emails, I make coffee, I fiddle with my computer to make sure that the book I haven‘t started writing is perfectly synced across all platforms and devices.
Mystery is but another name for ignorance; if we were omniscient, all would be perfectly plain!
I feel like something magical is going to happen, and I feel like all the stars have finally lined up perfectly for Angie Stone.
‘Love’ is so short of perfect rhymes that convention allows half-rhymes like ‘move.’ The alternative is a plague of doves, or a kind of poem in which the poet addresses his adored both as ‘love’ and as ‘guv’ – a perfectly decent solution once, but only once, in a while.
I wrote about Herschell in my book ‘Shock Value,’ for which I interviewed him. We became friends; I had dinner with Herschell the last year before he died. He was elderly, but his mind was perfectly intact.

In a way I guess I’d be a bad judge of what it was like because it just seemed perfectly normal to me.
Susan Olsen
The Bible tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

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.
I was never academically driven in English, but, again, Tom Waits is a perfect example of an influence. He writes so immaculately and paints so perfectly a world and the characters within it. There are writers like that who are my influences: vivid and gifted storytellers.
I’ve never studied the classics, but I’d like to. My teacher offered to show me how the Greeks were able to sculpt someone perfectly. From there, you can go off and experiment – sort of like jazz. Once you learn to play anything, you can break the form and go and do something even bigger.
I don’t know Bengali perfectly. I don’t know how to write it or even read it. I have an accent, I speak without authority, and so I’ve always perceived a disjunction between it and me. As a result, I consider my mother tongue, paradoxically, a foreign language.
I’m a con artist in that I’m an actor. I make people believe something is real when they know perfectly well it isn’t.
There is nothing wrong with becoming more ambitious along the way, but I think what the government has asked the council to do is a perfectly good starting point.
Absolutely not, because in acting I’ve found a domain that suits me perfectly. And that is so utterly rare.

Poe’s saying that a long poem is a sequence of short ones is perfectly just.
John Drinkwater

You may confuse a lot of people when going against the grain of conventional thinking, and that’s perfectly okay. As an entrepreneur, standing up for your vision to your family and friends might possibly be the best practice you will get for the life that awaits you.
I’m a brand ambassador. I’ve been a fan of Nip+Fab for a while, so it fit perfectly. I just love their stuff.
It’s perfectly obvious that there is some genetic factor that distinguishes humans from other animals and that it is language-specific. The theory of that genetic component, whatever it turns out to be, is what is called universal grammar.
For its part, one of the keys of Tottenham is that it has players who know each other very well for two or three years. They have not made changes and are managed by the same coach, Mauricio Pochettino. Therefore, they perfectly apply the idea of team and style of play.
What’s happened with computer technology is perfectly timed for someone with my set of skills. I tell stories with pictures. What I love about CGI is that if I can think it, it can be put on the screen.
I’d be perfectly happy with a mathematically precise description of how time began. I see science and religion as being two completely different things. I don’t see science as relevant to the question of whether or not there’s a God.
Neil Turok
With love, you don’t mislead or play around, so if you’re not perfectly clear, just be honest about it.

Benjamin Haydon
Epigenetics doesn’t change the genetic code, it changes how that’s read. Perfectly normal genes can result in cancer or death. Vice-versa, in the right environment, mutant genes won’t be expressed. Genes are equivalent to blueprints; epigenetics is the contractor. They change the assembly, the structure.
I am a perfectly normal woman. If what we do is storytelling and represent people that we see all day and every day, well, we do not see supermodels all day and every day.
Oh, I would love to be a motivational speaker. I have pulled myself out of a million potholes, and I can see the potholes ahead of me. That doesn’t mean that I could always do that so perfectly for my own life. I totally fall in potholes.
Only one of us would usually sing lead. Which most of the time was, Mickey or Dave. They thought it was perfectly a natural routine, because Mickey and Dave saw themselves as TV actors.

It is perfectly possible to live a very moral life with

It is perfectly possible to live a very moral life without a belief in God, and I think it’s perfectly possible to live a life peppered with ill-doing and believe in God.
As a professional football player, I have known perfectly well from the day I started playing that every day I have to fight for my place.
Luis Figo
Perfection is perfectly simple; fouling things up requires true skill.
My basic mistake in ‘The World’s Greatest Lover’ was that I made the leading character a neurotic kook and sent him to Hollywood. I should have made him a perfectly normal, sane, ordinary person, and sent him to Hollywood. The audience identifies with the lead character.
When I found the music of Monk I finally found music that fit that horn. Every one of his tunes fit it perfectly.
Let’s say you need a perfectly obedient servant who never gets tired, never needs to be paid, and is virtually indestructible. If you’re in a galaxy a long time ago and far, far away, you’ll just fly off to the local droid auction and pick up one of those shiny gold models with lovely manners.
OK, the wonderful thing about soccer is, a football is a perfectly round object, and it doesn’t make mistakes. The player using it makes mistakes. And the more you use it, the less mistakes you make.
Craig Johnston
When looking for an influencer to work with, it’s tempting to go for those with huge amount of fans and followers. This is perfectly understandable, as you obviously want your business or product promoted to as many people as possible. However, numbers aren’t everything.
According to the percentage people, you would be perfectly comfortable.
Bobby Bragan
I do detest everything which is not perfectly mutual.
Despair is perfectly compatible with a good dinner, I promise you.

I’m like, bursting. I should be working. I don’t want to take a break. It’s funny, on set, I don’t have to go to the bathroom, I don’t have anything wrong, I’m perfectly fine, so through-and-through. I’m not hungry. I’m literally not even in my own body.
Sport allows us to engage in dialogue and to build bridges, and it may even have the capacity to reshape international relations. The Olympic Games embody perfectly this universal mission.
The key to our oldest woodland is that it has been cut down and regrown, in some cases as often as 50 or 60 times. It is one of the most perfectly sustainable resources and ecosystems known to man.
We come to love not by finding a perfect person but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.
Sam Keen
I live a perfectly happy and comfortable life in Blair‘s Britain, but I can’t work up much affection for the culture we’ve created for ourselves: it’s too cynical, too knowing, too ironic, too empty of real value and meaning.
I will never say never, but I can tell you right now – I am perfectly happy with being who I am. I just – I really – I’m an entertainer, and the thing that I’d decided to work on was my career, and I decided the energy that I was putting in certain relationships – I was really kind of wasting my time, and I knew it.
I remember perfectly my first trip to New York, when I was on the bridge between Brooklyn and Manhattan, when I saw the skyscrapers. It was like an incredible dream.
In the media, I always seemed to come across as someone who was poking fun at the Scots and their football. I guess the Scottish public needed someone to blame for their international defeats, and I fitted the bill perfectly.
Jimmy Hill
A family’s desire to be able to keep its health insurance when changing jobs or geography (a problem that Obamacare doesn’t make any better, by the way) is perfectly reasonable.
And how can poetry stand up against its new conditions? Its position is perfectly precarious.
John Crowe Ransom
I hate flatscreens. I don’t want to see anything in that much pixilation. I don’t need to see the pimple on someone’s face. I love the world through glass. The more old, dusty and tainted that glass is, the prettier and more impressionistic that is to me. I don’t need to see everything perfectly. I don’t like it.
If I am not confident that I can portray the character perfectly on screen, I won’t even try.
While it’s important to accept failure and not let it bog you down, it’s also perfectly acceptable to get upset about it as long as you remember that failure is a stepping stone in your journey that is getting you to where you need to be.

Banksy
Scrivener can be a tricky beast to get your head around. When you do, a bell rings, and suddenly it all seems perfectly clear. But to reach that stage you have to understand what it can do, and try it out for yourself. Which can be daunting.
As an actor we’re just like workers in a factory, we provide our services to directors. But I must do my job perfectly, and I love what I do.

I think the days before cell phones, when it was dirt clod wars at construction sites, was a lot more wholesome and productive, to be perfectly honest.
We rip out a perfectly good kitchen worth thousands of pounds, only to replace it with another costing roughly the same. The old one has to be disposed of, the new one had to be made. From raw materials, factory processes and transportation the extra effort is substantial. Overcomplication.
I was perfectly satisfied with the West Side of Chicago when I was in knickerbockers. I hope it was with me.
Charles Comiskey
I think the studio gave me that series on purpose, because they knew perfectly well that Robert Riskin was ill and that I needed to go to work. They gave me that series to do.
I know a lot of celebrities who are perfectly happy to put their name to something and then leave it at that because the money is good, but I need to have complete control over how something is going to look if my name is going to be attached to it.
One thing is perfectly clear: We don’t need another China crony in the White House!
I think I could probably make $5 to $10m movies for a very long time and live a perfectly good life doing it. I’d probably get paid as well as a surgeon, which is pretty damn remarkable for a guy who went to film school.
For man, as for flower and beast and bird, the supreme triumph is to be most vividly, most perfectly alive.
I want to live perfectly above the law, and make it my servant instead of my master.
Brigham Young

I don’t do my hair very perfectly because I think it looks sexier when you don’t have everything perfectly structured out.
But let me perfectly clear, because I know you’ll hear the same old claims that rolling back these tax breaks means a massive tax increase on the American people: if your family earns less than $250,000 a year, you will not see your taxes increased a single dime. I repeat: not one single dime.
The fashion world tells me how much they love my work, but they don’t hire me very often. Tom Ford did, and he hated it. Naturally, he wanted to Photoshop away the imperfections, which is perfectly understandable. They want their vision.
Though I don’t personally believe that Bitcoin is true money, it should be perfectly legal, and there should be no restrictions on it; there should be no taxes on it.
I think my style is perfectly suited to the way the game is played in the U.K.
I had the longest, biggest bowl cut. It looked like I had a perfectly straightened mop on the top of my head.
Are you trivialising the sisterhood if you dye your hair or have your eyebrows threaded? I’d say the answer to that is no. But equally, it’s a perfectly valid feminist thing to say there is a certain amount of attention on a woman’s appearance, and I don’t wish that to be the focus or a distraction.
I’m a total technophobe. What is wrong with paper and pen? I was delighted when I learnt the word ‘Luddite,’ as I thought it described me perfectly.
Roxy Music’ and ‘For Your Pleasure,’ those exercises in learning and unlearning of accent and manners, are Pop’s equivalent of ‘The Talented Mr Ripley.’ The clothes , the bearing and the voice are faked, but not yet perfectly.
I think our movie, ‘Now You See Me,’ is an emotional movie rooted in smart and wits and fully amazing actors working perfectly together. It’s like a supergroup of musicians.
I’m perfectly happy to eat organic food, but if I choose to pay more for it, I don’t pat myself on the back ethically. Quite the reverse. I think I’m actually being quite greedy, because what I’m doing is essentially saying, ‘I want more land to be devoted to growing my food.’
Matt Ridley
There are days when I still wake up angry, and no one handles it perfectly all the time, but honestly, I feel lucky to have diabetes because of the people I get to meet. The families, the kids, the parents, the other athletes. If I could pick a club to be in, this would definitely be it.
I remember being a kid and seeing the ‘National Inquirer’ at the grocery store checkout line. When somebody actually picked up a copy, it was mortifying. You felt dirty for them. But now it’s perfectly acceptable to read something like that. There’s absolutely no taboo surrounding that kind of exploitation.
Post-‘Pellichoopulu,’ I received a lot of offers from Tamil industry. I decided I won’t do a Tamil film unless I know the language. If I want to do it, I wanted to do it perfectly.
I want to play a role of a 24-year-old woman, not 17-year-old girls. So I have picked a couple of films like ‘Butter’ to show that. And it’s perfectly fine not to do anything for a year if I don’t find the right thing.
I have nothing against interviews. I don’t pursue them. When people I work for deem it appropriate, I’m perfectly willing to serve.
The debate about the war seems pretty robust and free. Many publications, from the New Yorker to the Nation, feel perfectly comfortable printing anti-American articles and that’s fine. That’s what the First Amendment is all about.
Rich Lowry
Sometimes getting something off your chest to someone else is an important step in coping – so you know that you’re not alone, you’re not failing, and that it is perfectly normal to feel overwhelmed or sad at times. Everybody does.
Woodstock didn’t define a generation because everyone showed up or those who did were a perfectly representative sample. It defined a generation because, for a few days, it bottled its peculiar zeitgeist.

I think an encore is perfectly acceptable, but I find i

Gardening is easy. Stick it in the ground the right way up and most plants will grow perfectly well.
The thing that struck me most after first viewing ‘The Sessions’ was the charm of Mark O’Brien and the intimacy that the director, Ben Lewin, manages to capture perfectly on screen. I did not feel forced or cajoled in any way into believing the story.
My kids will grow up in a house knowing that it’s perfectly normal for two men to be in love, it’s perfectly normal for two women to be in love. My kids will grow up knowing it’s all about love. It doesn’t matter who you’re with and everyone should have that experience.

I said to my doctor at the beginning, ‘I’m no good; I can’t do anything. I’m dumb.’ He suggested I try educating myself by listening to Boston‘s educational TV station. He said I had a perfectly good mind.
Anne Sexton
I love – you know, I’m a big fan of Prince and Curtis Mayfield and Smoky Robinson. It’s something to be said about a man who can be very masculine but still display that sensitive side, and that falsetto does it perfectly.
The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and never persist in trying to set people right.
I think Swedes and Australians dress pretty much the same. It’s like a casual laid-back style but still chic. I really like it, it suits me perfectly.
We have contradictory expectations of police: We want to be perfectly safe and perfectly free. We want total security and total privacy. We want the bad guys stopped and the good guys unmolested. That’s great for the consumer; try providing it.
The cast of ‘Lemonade Mouth’ was picked so perfectly. A lot of people see us as a band on camera, but not a lot of people know that Lemonade Mouth was a band off-camera, too.
Adam Hicks
I’ve always had a knack for hitting the mark perfectly. Even when I’m walking or running, I’m very good at not having to look down.
A monomaniac is a sick person whose mentality is perfectly healthy in all respects but one; he has a single flaw, clearly localized. At times, for example, he has an unreasonable and absurd desire to drink or steal or use abusive language; but all his other acts and all his other thoughts are strictly correct.
Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for 10 years.
I will always do R. Kelly – I’m not perfect, but I’m perfectly me.
My Botswana books are positive, and I’ve never really sought to deny that. They are positive. They present a very positive picture of the country. And I think that that is perfectly defensible given that there is so much written about Africa which is entirely negative.
If Id had a happy childhood I definitely wouldnt have become the person I am – although a bad childhood isnt a recipe for being a creative person. There are many people in the arts who come from perfectly happy, middle-class homes.
I have a perfectly average skewed perception of myself. We often don’t know what we’re like.
I was ecstatic when ‘The Walking Dead’ came along. Merle Dixon was so perfectly adapted for me.

Sly Stone doesn’t make good albums: only good records. His style is so infinite and revolves around so many crucial aspects that it has only come together perfectly on a handful of his singles.
My mum was methodical in making sure we did our homework perfectly. She would do outlines to help us. When we were younger, she used flash cards.
Part of the game of investing is to come into your own. You must find some way that perfectly fits your personality because there is some element of a zero sum game in investing. If you buy, somebody else has to sell. And when you sell, somebody has to buy. You can’t both be right.
My mom’s discipline worked out perfectly. I wouldn’t change a thing.
I was a complete brat but was an angel with my mother. I used to be perfectly behaved, and my mother used to be like… ‘Really, are you badly behaved with other people?’ I was like, ‘No, not at all.’ But the minute she used to leave the room, I was a brat.
I know my body perfectly well.
Nothing goes perfectly, especially when you’re opening a restaurant.

Maybe... there is a perfectly reasonable explanation fo

Maybe… there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for unlawfully detaining 120 people. Maybe they just got carried away with last year’s idea of pre-emptive strikes and thought, ‘Let’s not wait for an actual crime to occur. Let’s get the innocent.
Mark Thomas
What physics tells us is that everything comes down to geometry and the interactions of elementary particles. And things can happen only if these interactions are perfectly balanced.

David Prowse

It doesn’t matter if you’re the best wrestler in the world and can do every move perfectly; if you don’t connect with the crowd or sell well or have good promos, nobody cares.

To be perfectly honest, I have not watchedDiscovery,’ I was ignorant of the fact that it was even coming out. I thought it was another movie coming out.

To be perfectly honest, I’ve gotten attention from gay men for a long time.
The future for us is the foreseeable future. The South Asian, however, feels that it is perfectly realistic to think of a ‘long time’ in terms of thousands of years.

I worry a lot about taking care of my dependents, all those perfectly ordinary middle-class preoccupations.
If you’re not perfectly conscious of yourself, that self can be tyrannical; in relationship to others, anyone can become a tyrant. That’s why no one can be a Superman. You have to go beyond yourself with a ‘third eye’ – self-awareness – because the one thing you cannot flee is yourself.
If I could give a shout-out to anything in the childhood world, I have to say ‘Daniel Tiger.’ I want to write a love letter to everyone on that staff. It is so perfectly, thoughtfully, lovingly done. And as a parent, it is the one thing out of everything that we dip in to that really helps.
Life is too short to spend hoping that the perfectly arched eyebrow or hottest new lip shade will mask an ugly heart.
I'm 64 years old and, yeah, I went through a transition

I’m 64 years old and, yeah, I went through a transition in my life last year, with the death of my son, that woke me up to a lot of things. You know, I’m perfectly happy in my own little groove. Marching along, building my company, and you know, a happy person.

I’ve met a lot of military men in my time. After they retire, they are still extremely game. They dress perfectly and have impeccable manners. They always end up as secretaries of golf clubs. I have great admiration for them.
It was a perfectly average well- adjusted childhood, not a bit unlike that of millions of other individuals.
DeForest Kelley

People are perfectly glad to accept the idea that dogs love us, so they must be able to love each other.

Barry Sternlicht
I draw attention to the problems that the Islamic ideology brings to our country, and I think that’s a perfectly reasonable thing to do.

People are always saying that Hollywood messes up kids. I’m like, ‘No, families mess up kids!’ I grew up in Hollywood, and I’m perfectly fine. If my children want to go into the entertainment business, I won’t stop them, as long as they’re passionate about it.

My dad says that when I was two or three I used to go out dressed as a different character every day. I remember thinking it was perfectly normal to wear different coloured shoes and carry a pink umbrella. But now I’ve got a goddaughter of that age; I realise it’s not normal at all.
I don’t like the fact that C.F.P.B. exists, I will be perfectly honest with you.
