It turns out that all of the things I was looking for in a governor, Trump has even more. He has been vetted by the media; he has been attacked by the media his entire life and is perfectly comfortable in front of a gaggle of microphones.
I have a lot of good rolemodels in my family for things off the court – like my older sister, who’s a lawyer. I don’t like writing papers, but she’s helped me a lot. It’s nice to have an art and business background because they tie together perfectly.
When I get to do whatever I want, I’m perfectly happy. I’ve found that the best scenario is that I just do what I do, and if somebody wants to be part of it, they should work as a conduit for what vision I have. They should help me complete the universe.
I always have the same problem when I try to buy something straight off the rack: If I put on a medium, it’s perfectly fitted in the torso, but the sleeves are too short. If it’s a large, the sleeves are long enough, but it’s too baggy. So made-to-measure suits are especially important for me because I’m 6’2” and so skinny.
Unlike chicken, duck breast has a hue and texture akin to that of red meat and is safe to consume medium-rare, so bring on the pink. Perfectly cooked duck breast will have moist and juicy meat, with a luscious and crunchy skin.

I’m not supposed to be phonetically correct or enunciate perfectly.
One of the greatest experiences I ever had was listening to a conversation with Joni Mitchell and Wayne Shorter. Just to hear them talking, my mouth was open. They understand each other perfectly, and they make these leaps and jumps because they don’t have to explain anything.
For a while I was perfectly happy not performing with ‘The Who.’ From 1982 to 1989 I felt ‘The Who’ did not exist. I let the band go, in my heart. However, Roger Daltrey had other ideas. He would not let go.
There can sometimes be this fearamong laypeople: ‘I don’t understand everything in science perfectly, so I just can’t say anything about it.’ I think it’s good to know that we scientists are also confused some of the time.
I’ve always enjoyed that kind of thing – thinking about the production of narrative and why it is that when we read a novel, we don’t notice the fact that someone who might be very close-mouthed or tight-lipped is perfectly willing to tell us a story in 600 or 700 pages.
I like being permanently single. It suits me perfectly.
I respect every guy that has walkedaway. I think every single guy in this leaguemakes his own decision, and that’s perfectly fine. The reason I respect that and the reason I think every guy has his own way of dealing with things is because, in my personal opinion, I know what I’m getting into.
I was really looking forward to the release of ‘Villain.’ I put in a lot of hard work, and I am glad people are noticing basic things – like how I synced perfectly with the Malayalam dialogues or that I came across as a Malayalam girl – makes me feel wonderful.
I’m perfectly happy for my videos to be on YouTube, whether I’m getting paid for them or not. If they’re on YouTube, people will see them. If for some reason my videos get taken down from YouTube, well, I apologize. If it was up to me they’d all be up there and they’d all be free.
I have always been a left-winger and an outsider. I loved being that. I was perfectly cheerful with that role. Then suddenly, you’re one of the talking heads on ‘Nightline,’ and you think you must have sold out.
You may not win the Super Bowl. Your kids may not go on to be doctors and lawyers and everything may not go perfectly. That doesn’t mean it was a bad plan or the wrong thing. It’s just like a football season. Everything’s not going to go perfect.
The problem is I’m not a good photographer. To be perfectly honest, I’m too shy. Not aggressive enough. Well, I’m not aggressive at all. I just loved to see wonderfullydressed women, and I still do. That’s all there is to it.
Share your IoT experiences. Share your successes, best practices, and failures. We know that IoT doesn’t work perfectly every time, but we can learn from each other’s mistakes and vow not to repeat them.
I realized that if I were a 23-year-old girl getting married, and I wasn’t struggling with it, that would likely mean that something was either massively wrong with me or that my brain is made up of delicately wrapped almonds that serve perfectly as party favors.
I think people should express themselves more and not just buy what’s in. While it can be very beautiful, and it may suit you perfectly, I’m sure it doesn’t suit everyone in the same way. I like people who express themselves and are more individualistic.
I remember going out alone in a canoe. Somebody told me to lie in the bottom of the canoe and just drift. It was a smalllake and I was perfectly safe. So I did that, and I drifted. It was quiet and peaceful. Suddenly, I heard a loon cry the first time I ever heard that marvelous sound.
Any person who says their family is perfectly functional is lying.
When Christians start thinking about Jesus, things start breaking down, they lose their faith. It’s perfectly possible to go to church every Sunday and not ask any questions, just because you like it as a way of life. They fear that if they ask questions they’ll lose their Christ, the very linchpin of their religion.
I love my children and care greatly for their future. If they decide they just want to loaf around for a bit between the ages of 16 and 25, that’s perfectly fine by me. I did it, and I’m doing fine, thanks. Sometimes ‘leaving kids to their own devices‘ is the best thing for them.
What I like most: Reading well-written sources that take me to another world for hours at a time – and being able to call that ‘work!’ Also, of course, finding a gem of information that is either exactly what I was looking for, or else fits perfectly into the story in some way.
A good businessman never makes a contract unless he’s sure he can carry it through, yet every fool on earth is perfectly willing to sign a marriage contract without considering whether he can live up to it or not.
I marvel to think that the Son of God would condescend to save us, as imperfect, impure, mistake-prone, and ungrateful as we often are. I have tried to understand the Savior‘s Atonement with my finite mind, and the only explanation I can come up with is this: God loves us deeply, perfectly, and everlastingly.
When it’s the funeral scene of ‘My Girl,’ and Thomas is in the casket, and the young lady is screaming that he can’t see without his glasses, you can absolutely, absolutely cry. Perfectly big, crazy tears all over your shirt, into the arms of others.
I actually quit ballet when I was offered a job, an apprenticeship at North Carolina Dance Theater Company, run by John Pierre Bonnefoux and Patricia McBride, who are my idols. Everything sort of went perfectly. I was 16, and I was about to drop out of high school and become a professional ballet dancer.
I think the things I wanted answered have been answered by people in the know that we can’t talk about, so I’m perfectly happy with how Chewie came to be where he is and what is going on in Episode III.
With the launch of Big MachinePremiumVodka, we are now offering a superior product that perfectly complements the music we take such great pride in.

I don’t know anyone, from any class, who’s had a perfectly easy life. I’ve met people born into wealthy families who feel like they didn’t have much emotional support, and people who come from working-class families who had loads of love but no money.
For me, vision is just about the most important thing. So goggles play a huge role in my sport. I come to the competition with a bunch of different goggles and tons of different lenses in multiple tints. The weather can always be changing, and you have to have the right thing to make sure you can see perfectly.
There are essentially two main reasons to hold a phone up at a show. First, to capture a memory for yourself, a reminder of the moment you’re enjoying. And second, to share that moment with someone – to express your emotions socially. Both seem perfectly legitimate to me.
Liberals are always proposing perfectly insane ideas, laws that will make everybody happy, laws that will make everything right, make us live forever, and all be rich. Conservatives are never that stupid.
We don’t exactly have the oppositeinterests to chimpanzees. However, things are not looking up for the chimpanzees, because we control their environment. Our interests are not perfectly aligned with theirs, and it turns out it’s not easy to get interests aligned.
We’re not all thin model types, and we’re not all perfectly colored. It mind-boggles me that somebody would take time out of their life to make someone feel inferior because of something like that. That, to me, is insane.
Because the Savior is a resurrected and glorified being, He is not physically with every one of His servants at every moment. But He is perfectly aware of them and their circumstance and able to intervene with His power.
I was never interested in looking at myself in an aestheticmirror. My intention was always to get away from myself, though I knew perfectly well that I was using myself. Call it a little game between ‘I’ and ‘me.’

I don’t want Washington – let me be perfectly clear – I do not want Washington involved in local education decisions any more than I want them involved in common core. You know, common core was a state-created and state-implemented voluntary set of standards in Math and English that are comparable across state lines.
The first record I made, when I listen to it, I understand. I understand perfectly well why certain musicians were unhappy with me. I had to decide: was I unhappy with me? I liked it. If they didn’t like it, it was on them.
Life can very genuinely and realistically pile things on. It doesn’t dole out the heartache and pain, or joy, perfectly.
Sex is… perfectly natural. It’s something that’s pleasurable. It’s enjoyable and it enhances a relationship. So why don’t we learn as much as we can about it and become comfortable with ourselves as sexual human beings because we are all sexual?
There’s so much guilt there attached to having a perfectly good life.
He was an amazing actor and could mimic anybody’s voice. My sister Katrine was walking past one day and could hear our dad shouting and thought, ‘God, I won’t go in that room!’ but realised it was Nicol Williamson mimicking my father’s voice perfectly.
It’s hard for me to find a script that’s perfectly suited to me, so even if it’s a good script, I’ll still have to work on it with someone and shape it, making it the film that I want to make. So in that respect, I prefer to do the stuff that I’ve generated anyway.
The great gift of conversation lies less in displaying it ourselves than in drawing it out of others. He who leaves your company pleased with himself and his own cleverness is perfectly well pleased with you.
Any time I have a promo with him – and I like R-Truth, too – but I always have the best chemistry with Miz. We really don’t stay on script perfectly. We kind of bounce off each other… He is the one I paid attention to when it came to promos. He helped me so much along the way with backstagesegments.
Reviewers are certainly entitled to their own opinions. I’ve become buddies with enough writers and directors, and to be perfectly honest, the ones that have lasted a long time don’t pay a lot of attention to the reviews.
This is going to sound pretentious and esoteric, but I truly mean it from the bottom of my heart. Acting has always been a spiritual journey for me. The very first project I ever acted on paralleled my experience so perfectly even before I was aware of it.
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 EdwardJay Epstein that makes it all perfectly clear.
You were made perfectly to be loved – and surely I have loved you, in the idea of you, my whole life long.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Man, like other organisms, is so perfectly coordinated that he may easily forget, whether awake or asleep, that he is a colony of cells in action, and that it is the cells which achieve, through him, what he has the illusion of accomplishing himself.
If I just track Shang-Chi’s journey in the context of table tennis in my life, it actually fits perfectly, and that’s why I was able to sink into the character so, so seamlessly.
The best script in the world doesn’t work perfectly when you actually act it out. That’s a law. That’s a given. So you have to play with everything. And the more fun you have with it, the better the finished product.
One baby is a patient baby, and waits indefinitely until its mother is ready to feed it. The other baby is an impatient baby and cries lustily, screams and kicks and makes everybody unpleasant until it is fed. Well, we know perfectly well which baby is attended to first. That is the whole history of politics.
The need to be right can arise from a fear of being disrespected. Or it may come out of the fear of being seen as we really are: as flawed human beings who are perfectly imperfect and full of contradictions and confusions.
For all of my life I’d been extremely healthy. I’d never had any health issues, so to go from being perfectly healthy to having this very rare disease was scary. In a lot of people it is very severe. Some people go blind, you can have neuro-lesions which affect your brain, so I was very nervous.
The desk thing is a problem for me. The ideal one would be vast and perfectly clear. Yet the bane of the biographical existence is paper; if you’re ‘an artist under oath‘ you’re writing from a mountain of documentation.
Publishers give you deadlines for those last phases of production that are perfectly comfortable for them. So, to whatever extent I can, I like to push those to give me a little more time, and make it so that they’re as uncomfortable as I am.
I know who Cristiano Ronaldo is and he’s a gorgeous looking guy. It would be an obscenity for him even to look at me as anything else but a mother figure while of course it is perfectly OK for me to look at him as a man.
By God’s grace, it was turning out to be a cracker of a film, so we named it ‘Laxmmi Bomb.’ Like a dhamaka of Laxmmi Bomb cannot be missed, the transgender lead character is powerful and radiant. Hence the name fits perfectly.
If an ordinary personparks outside another ordinary person’s house for a week, it’s considered stalking. If, however, that person is considered newsworthy, it’s perfectly legal for paparazzi to do the same thing.
It’s important to show that there’s different ways of doing things. Some people like to be glamorous, and that’s perfectly fine, and that’s amazing. If I were that style, then I would do that. I’d wear heels every day, and I’d strut around in a dress, but that’s not me.
The Caprese salad perfectly represents the colors of the Italian flag. While I am not so sure that the colors of the flag stem from the cuisine, there is no denying that those colors do evoke a typical Italian plate.
We went to a small lake, Bass Lake. It was beautiful. It was perfectly still when we got there in the morning. The fog was lifting off the water. It was just magical. And we did catch some fish, 13 fish.
Steampunk appeals to the idea of uniqueness, to the one-off item, while every mainstream consumer technology of recent years is about putting human beings into ever more granular, packageable and mass-produced identities so that they can be sold or sold to, perfectly mapped and understood.
Most people draw from the mind, not the eye. They draw the idea of a table or a face, not what’s in front of them. We don’t actually see the line of the jaw as a line and we don’t see an eye as a perfectly outlined almond shape.
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 cheappawn 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 Fridaynight, I was playing in a honky-tonk.
Before Ricky Gervais came along, I was a jobbing actress and perfectly content if a little unfulfilled: I’d just done an advert for Imodium. That year, 1999, I auditioned for four parts. ‘The Office’ was the only one I got. What its successgave me was freedom of choice.
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.
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.
CIOs have earned a strategicseat at the table, but now they’ve got to hold that seat – and the only way they can do that is to converse in the language of business value and business benefits and business outcomes that all align perfectly with the strategic agenda of the company.
There are times when success doesn’t make sense on a purely mathematical basis. I’ve played absolutely perfectly before, put in a masterful performance, and then my perfect play evaporated because one guy lost his mind and got lucky. Of course, I’ve also won that way.
Doing comedy is very difficult and if you do it perfectly you can do any kind of roles.
I never have really said much about the whole episode, which was endless. But his speech was a perfectly intelligent speech about fathers not being dispensable and nobody agreed with that more than I did.
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.
I am perfectly happy to believe that nobody likes us but the public.
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.
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?
It obviouslymatters 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 pilotprinted 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.
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.
‘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.
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’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 don’t order take-out sushi for the fish. Unless I’m spending a lot of money to eat at a phenomenal sushi restaurant, I eat it for the rice, which is perfectly seasoned with a mixture of salt, sugar, and rice vinegar.
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.
With love, you don’t mislead or play around, so if you’re not perfectly clear, just be honest about it.
People tend to assume I was terriblyself-conscious about my height. In fact, I’ve always been perfectly comfortable with the way I am. And if anyone gave me any stick, they soon found I was quite capable of giving it back.
Men who have reached and passed 45, have a look as if waiting for the secret of the other world, and as if they were perfectly sure of having found out the secret of this.
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.
Oh, I would love to be a motivationalspeaker. 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.
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.
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.
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.
If I have to do something, I feel I should do it perfectly, and ofcourse, Hindi language is a problem.
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.
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 wastingmy time, and I knew it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 taxesincreased 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.
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.
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’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.’
There are days when I still wake upangry, 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.
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.
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.
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.
For me, the most important thing that I am meticulous about when it comes to fashion is fit. I want something that fits perfectly for my body type and fits perfectly for who I am as a person from the inside out.
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.
I love – you know, I’m a big fan of Prince and Curtis Mayfield and SmokyRobinson. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If I could wrestle somebody at a WrestleMania, I would have really loved to wrestle with John Cena. It would have been nice to have a great WrestleMania match with The Rock and Edge, but my history would have lined up perfectly with John.
I did not believe that the public was sophisticated enough to understand that a newsman could wear several hats and that we had the ability to turn off – nearly, you can’t say perfectly, but nearly – all of our prejudices and biases.
In certain businesses, I would say 10 failures to one success is a perfectly acceptable ratio. Because the failures die pretty quickly, they’re not that expensive, and the successes can be really huge.
Not much to be perfectly honest! I thought The PhantomMenace was terrible, except for the Pod Race.
The single greatest line I ever wrote as an analyst was after Lomas said they were hedged: ‘The Lomas Financial Corporation is a perfectly hedged financial institution: it loses money in every conceivable interest rate environment.’ I enjoyed writing that sentence more than any sentence I ever wrote.
Do not imagine that what we have said of the insufficiency of our understanding and of its limited extent is an assertion founded only on the Bible: for philosophers likewiseassert the same, and perfectly understand it,- without having regard to any religion or opinion.
Natural capital is easy to overlook because it is the pond we swim in. One can live perfectly well without ever giving a thought to the sulfur cycle or wetland functions. Only when the benefits nature provides are disrupted do we take notice.
If I could give a shout-out to anything in the childhood world, I have to say ‘DanielTiger.’ 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.
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.
You are never wrong when you have voted because you’ve acted in accordance with your conscience and your beliefs, and you’ve exercised your democratic right, which is, you know, perfectly legitimate in our democracies.
My dad is the first to say that Mum deals with the mortgage payments, the bills, the rota, things like that, while my dad is the emotional one who keeps the home together. He’s the nurturer, but together, they work perfectly.
There’s a beautifully simple sketch in the first episode of ‘Smack the Pony:’ two women approach each other walking their dogs and as they pass the women bark at each other, the dogs remaining perfectly calm. It kills me every time.
I don’t actually go to that many conferences. I do that a couple of times a year. Normally, I am not recognized; people don’t throw their panties at me. I’m a perfectly normal person sitting in my den just doing my job.
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.
I have played some wonderful leading roles on stage and had the whole ‘China Beach‘ years where I really played a leading man on that. That was a fun change for a character actor. But I’m perfectly happy going back to building my gallery of memorable character roles.
Today, I don’t think anyone would think that a mixed-race couple looks odd; I think it’s considered perfectly normal. In a very short timeframe, the country has changed so much, and for the better. Britain has become, I think, the most tolerant and open-minded country in the world.
Arsenal prepare the players in the best way. They pay attention to every detail. We are able to recover optimally during our flights. The food and the service, everything’s geared perfectly to each other.
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.
We have shown that Islam can rule the world perfectly for 14 centuries, and during this time of Muslim power we did not borrow ideas like democracy from others, so why do we need to learn democracy from them now?
