Gerhard Herzberg
I do not enjoy being away from Richmond, my friends of a lifetime, and my home… I do not enjoy working 6 days a week and almost every night at a time when I had planned to be tapering off. There are compensations which appeal to any lawyer who is proud of his profession. The Supreme Court is an awesome place.
Lewis F. Powell, Jr.
We originally developed ‘The Client List’ along with Lifetime as a TV movie – my manager and I became partners on the project. Then, we brought in Howard Braunstein on the project and produced it along with Lifetime.

That’s something I always say is good to do in life, is to leave our mark in this lifetime.

I’m able to utilize a lifetime of learning to help teach young people how to apply sound marketing strategy and principles for the purpose of growing the client‘s business. And for me, that’s just too much fun.
The only thing that infuriates me is that I have more unwritten stories in me than I can conceivably write in a lifetime.
Howard Fast
Doing theater, I call it concentrated shampoo. You put a dime in the palm of your hand and you get a headful of lather. When you do a play, you’re there for two and a half hours, and you live a lifetime.
Richard Kind
I think the acquisition of consumers might be on the verge of being mapped. The battlefield is going to be retention and lifetime value.
Maybe because I’m mixed race, I don’t see the colour when I look at Meghan; I just see a beautiful, articulate, lovely woman who has stolen the heart of Harry, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness.
I’ll be amazed in my lifetime if my business gets to being 5 per cent online.

A lifetime of training for just ten seconds.
Jesse Owens
I think I have a good track record, both in commercial investing and in philanthropic investing.

I think I’m pretty good at doing it, so I’m going to apply myself to doing it in my lifetime.
I didn't know if it would be a success-ful one, or what

Women are always complaining about men’s fascination with breasts. But what if men were absolutely indifferent to breasts? What would women do then with these things that serve one function once or twice in a lifetime, and the rest of the time are just in the way?
I haven‘t lived a perfect life. I have regrets. But that’s from a lifetime of taking chances, making decisions, and trying not to be frozen. The only thing that I can do with my regrets is understand them.
Stardom is just an uneasy seat on top of a tricky toboggan. Being a star is merely perching at the head of the downgrade. A competent featured player can last a lifetime. A star, a year or two. There’s all that agony of finding suitable stories, keeping in character, maintaining illusion.
Fredric March
Serving the people of Arkansas‘ 2nd District is the honor of a lifetime, and I’m grateful for the opportunity I have been given by my fellow Arkansans.
Personality traits form at an early age and are fixed by early adulthood. Many important things about you change over the course of your lifetime, but your personality isn’t one of them.
In human history, we are going from knowledge to omniscience, from potence to omnipotence, from ethics and religion to righteousness. So, in my view, God comes at the end of this long process. This may not happen in our lifetimes or even in the lifetime of our species.

The Margaret Thatchers of this country made it through – like I did – because of the grammar school system, which gave the opportunity of a lifetime to working-class kids. It put them on a level playing field with the privately educated kids, and opened up the top universities to them.
Cricket, like all sport, offers glory to few and a lifetime of it to even fewer. For the investment it demands, it offers short careers that end when people in other professions are starting to flourish.

Hillary doesn’t play. She has more experience and exposure to the presidency than any candidate in our lifetime – yes, more than Barack, more than Bill. So she is absolutely ready to be Commander-in-Chief on day one. And, yes, she happens to be a woman.
The number of ways you can live in one lifetime is limitless. So why limit yourself? The sky is NOT the limit. Beyond the universe is.
Suzy Kassem
Live music is proof that there’s some things the Internet can’t kill. In our lifetime, we’re going to see more and more things start to disappear and get gobbled up by the Internet, but live music won’t be one of them.
Nobody, in my lifetime, in either party, has reached out with a message of hope, growth and opportunity to minorities better than Jack Kemp.

I was totally surprised by the spread of the legalization of same-sex marriage. In just my lifetime we have gone from a taboo to even talk about homosexuality, to the sanction by governments of homosexual marriage. Few such large social considerations have ever before been turned over in such a short time.
John Naisbitt
It seems to me that in our lifetime we have passed from

It seems to me that in our lifetime we have passed from the wreck of liberal humanism to the beginning of a new recognition of dogma: isn’t it rather tremendous?
Ruth Pitter
Should Sen. McCain capture the nomination as many assume, I believe this general election will offer the worst choices for President in my lifetime. I certainly can’t vote for Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama based on their virulently anti-family policy positions.
I do not proactively approach Hollywood, but also I do not always turn down offers. But since I’m living as a movie director, I have a desire to shoot something like ‘This is a Hollywood movie!’ at least once in my lifetime.

I think I’m a good father, but that’s taken a lifetime of experience.
Mike Oldfield
As an African-American, we stand on the shoulders of people who fought despite not seeing victories in their lifetime or even in their children’s lifetime or even in their grandchildren‘s lifetime. So fatalism isn’t really an option.

There can be no better grounding for a lifetime as an author than to see humanity in all its various guises through the lens of the reporter for the town.
Never in my lifetime has there been more misogyny on display than during the 2016 election. It was disgusting. The biggest offender: Donald Trump.

Ted Williams
Two people will never be President in my lifetime. A woman and a black.
Charles Evers
I have never been particularly good with languages. Despite a dozen years of Hebrew school and a lifetime of praying in the language, I’m ashamed to admit that I still can’t read an Israeli newspaper. Besides English, the only language I speak with any degree of fluency is Spanish.
At about an age when most children start full time schooling, hundreds of thousands of their contemporaries start a lifetime of drudgery in factories and fields, working 12-16 hours daily.
My generation of bossy, confident, baby-boom women were something brand new in history. Our energy and assertiveness weren’t created by Betty Friedan, unknown before her 1963 book, or by Gloria Steinem, whose political activism, as even the Lifetime profile admitted, did not begin until 1969.
To me, families are puzzles that take a lifetime to work out – or not, as often is the case – and I like to explore how people within them try to connect, be it through love, duty, or circumstance.
The FDA first began prohibiting gay and bisexual men from donating blood in the early 1980s, at the height of the AIDS crisis, when the risk from blood transfusion was just beginning to be understood. In the decades to follow, the ‘lifetime ban‘ was left largely unchanged.

If consciousness can function independently of the body during one’s lifetime, it could be able to do the same after death.

It may be that the books that were best liked in your lifetime are not the ones that are best liked 100 years later.
Many employer-employee relationships are built on a lie that starts from the first interaction: neither party automatically conceives of the relationship as something that will last a lifetime, but both interact as if it is. This lie of omission bases the relationship on distrust.
I don’t worry about whether I’m making a masterpiece, because I know that if you get just one of those in a lifetime, you should get down on your knees and say ‘Thank you!’
It is rare to find a business partner who is selfless. If you are lucky it happens once in a lifetime.
Over my lifetime, women have demonstrated repeatedly that they can do anything that men can do, while still managing traditional women’s work at the same time. But the same expansion of roles has not been available to men.
Anne-Marie Slaughter
Many consumer Internet business executives are loyalists of the Lifetime Value model, often referred to as the LTV model or formula. Lifetime value is the net present value of the profit stream of a customer.

Joe Johnston
I’d always loved sports, and the Olympics were something I thought about often as a kid, but those dreams felt like a lifetime ago.

It’s the community that helps form our moral compass. It’s those attitudes that I’ve remembered through my entire lifetime.
John Morgridge
Meeting Stevie Wonder was a massive, lifetime achievement for me. He’s one of the sweetest people. I sense a kindred spirit in him, and I hope he’d say the same. Actually, he did.
On the screen were some flashback shots of Daniel, Emma and Rupert from ten years ago. They were 12. I have also recently returned from New York, and while I was there, I saw Daniel singing and dancing (brilliantly) on Broadway. A lifetime seems to have passed in minutes.
Who I am, what I am, is the culmination of a lifetime of reading, a lifetime of stories. And there are still so many more books to read. I’m a work in progress.
Sarah Addison Allen
I’m really a very weak musicologist. Wish it weren’t so, but there’s only so much you can dig deeply into in one lifetime, as if you hadn’t noticed.
Wendy Carlos
Well, I have a Norwegian father who emigrated to America in the 1950s, and he still speaks with varying degrees of an accent. Over my lifetime my ear has been well-tuned to that accent. Any first generation kid has that wonderful gift from their parents.
Christopher Heyerdahl
When the Asian flu hit the United States in 1957, during the Eisenhower administration, it was just the latest contagion college students had faced in a lifetime of contagious diseases.
America might be a dying empire, but it’s not going to die in our lifetime – and it doesn’t have to die at all.

I have seen such an immense change from the total repression and criminality of homosexuality in my lifetime. It does make me much more buoyant and optimistic about the future. If that change can occur in that time there’s hope for many other changes.

Houston's a very big town. It's changed a lot over my l

Houston‘s a very big town. It’s changed a lot over my lifetime, it’s quite a bit bigger now than it was when I was growing up, but it’s a fantastic city. I know a lot of people perhaps don’t give it the credit it’s due but it’s a wonderful city that’s got absolutely fantastic restaurants.
The great thing about acting is that you get to be a lot of different things in one lifetime. You get to explore different personalities and characters.
As a kid I’d lie awake at night and convince myself that a meteor was about to hit the Earth. It’s my fatalistic streak, which I’ve inherited from my mum. I firmly believe something cataclysmic is going to happen in my lifetime and I have to be prepared to run for my life when the time comes.
You may be a redneck if… your lifetime goal is to own a fireworks stand.
Nothing is going to change the fact that I believe Ronald Reagan is the greatest president in my lifetime – may well be the greatest president this nation ever had.

I wanted in my lifetime to vote for a radical Native American woman, since my vision of any future that we might have is that it will be led by women and older women.
Trust takes a lifetime to build, but only a moment to destroy. When looking to build a genuine connection with a mentor, you can simply partake in shared hobbies or activities the mentee or mentor is into, exchange stories, or partake in trust-building workshops together.
Wired gave ‘Duke Nukem Forever’ the first Vaporware Award, and then the next year it won No. 1 vaporware again, and then again and again until Wired decided, you know what? ‘Duke Nukem’ is just going to get the lifetime achievement award for vaporware.
Bernie Sanders is a serious person with a lifetime of consistent campaigning on principle.

I was earning a living. I was getting into more acting, then ‘Coronation Street‘ came along, and it was the chance of a lifetime.

When I was a kid a growing up in Ontario, Canada, Lake Erie was so polluted, I never thought it would ever, EVER be turned around where they could start cleaning it out in my lifetime!
I cannot stress a greater importance than to teach the young generation about the risks of unhealthy eating. A great way to pique their interest in nutrition is to involve them more in the cooking process. They not only will learn to cook for themselves, but also develop a lifetime of healthy habits.
God has opened many doors of opportunity throughout my lifetime, but I believe the greatest of those doors was allowing me to be born in the United States of America.
If we can live a day in peace, then why couldn’t we live a week in peace? If we can master a week, why not a month? If we can master a month in peace, why not a year in peace? And if we can master a year, then certainly we can master a lifetime of peace as God’s highest creation.
I want to make a drug. I want the science to be more than imaginary, where I think, ‘We’re learning these fundamental principles, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.’ I think we are doing that, but I want to do something really practical. I want to actually, in my lifetime, help people.
My lifetime role model and hero is Freddie Mercury of Queen. His songwriting skills, I cannot even approach, but his showmanship, I learned it from videos.
To have come here as an intern for the ‘Today’ show, to shoot that reel – I looked so serious. To be terrified like that and then to come and sit at this desk, to sit next to my friend Peter Alexander every Saturday, it is the honor of a lifetime.
If I can give you any advice, it’s this: every hour that you spend sat on the couch doing nothing, put it to good use, because when you have kids, an hour is like a lifetime.

A definite highlight was doing ‘The Brothers McMullen.’ Shooting that movie was such a joy – and then we wound up winning the Sundance Film Festival. That big-break moment is visceral. It happens once in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime.

America is the country where you can buy a lifetime supply of aspirin For one dollar and use it up in two weeks.

If you think people are dumb, you’ll spend a lifetime doing dumb work.

Glenn was the one who invited me to join the Eagles in 1974, and it turned out to be a gift of a lifetime to have spent so many years working side by side with him. He was funny, strong, and generous. At times, it felt like we were brothers, and at other times, like brothers, we disagreed.
One thing I’m sure of is that it’s not easy to find your lifetime partner.
With the changing economy, no one has lifetime employment. But community colleges provide lifetime employability.

With the right support, a child growing up in a dysfunctional household, who was destined for a lifetime on benefits could be put on an entirely different track – one which sees them move into fulfilling and sustainable work. In doing so, they will pull themselves out of poverty.

Michael King
It’s interesting – a lot of what you accomplish in your lifetime either as an individual or as a company is determined by other people. I mean, you can do interview after interview and defend a point of view, but more often than not, the collective kind of opinion will be the one viewed historically and taken as gospel.
My family had a lot to do with ‘My Infamous Life.’ They were the inspiration behind me starting to write. I had an interesting family life dating way back, and they did a lot in their lifetime.

The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.

Lance Burton
I’ve come to learn that my initial investment is more about the person versus the product that I am buying into. I’ve also learned that I really do enjoy giving worthy people an opportunity of a lifetime.
I think I’m one of the few people who have experienced New Jersey becoming fashionable twice in a lifetime.
We can’t continue to take from our planet the way we do and not give anything back, and the idea of, ‘Oh, but it’s fine, I won’t have to deal with it in my lifetime,’ well, you need to think about the future generations who will have to deal with it.
I probably did pack a lifetime’s work into the 1980s.
John Lloyd

Hillary will make us stronger together. You know it because she’s spent a lifetime doing it.
In my lifetime, we’ve gone from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. We’ve gone from John F. Kennedy to Al Gore. If this is evolution, I believe that in twelve years, we’ll be voting for plants.

Without going outside his race, and even among the better classes with their ‘white’ culture and conscious American manners, but still Negro enough to be different, there is sufficient matter to furnish a black artist with a lifetime of creative work.

Over my lifetime, the car had actually transcended the fact that it is a car. It has become a venue.
Ten years ago, 15 years ago, I think the church would have been asleep at the switch. This level of activism and engagement with the needs of society by local churches I never thought I’d see it in my lifetime.
Bill Hybels
In my lifetime, Mitt Romney is the most qualified leader I’ve ever seen run for the presidency of the United States.
The Ebola epidemic was the most frightening outbreak I have witnessed in my lifetime, and I believe it was necessary to react globally as strongly as we did.
I’m out there to be real, and I think people respond to that. If you have some image that you’re protecting, eventually people get sick of it, and I can’t imagine living that way for an entire lifetime. I’d rather just be who I am, and that’s good enough.
It was an experience that was exceptional. People frequently ask what it was like and it truly was inspiring. Sometimes during his lifetime, people would try and put him on a pedestal and that’s not where he wanted to be, but he was really a great individual.
Traits acquired during one’s lifetime – muscles built up in the gym, for example – cannot be passed on to the next generation. Now with technology, as it happens, we might indeed be able to transfer some of our acquired traits on to our selected offspring by genetic engineering.
Nick Bostrom
I don’t think I’ve done any profound work yet… People ask me, ‘How would you want to be remembered?’ I tell them I don’t want to be remembered! I’m not here to become a Madhubala or receive a Lifetime Achievement Award. I’m not that kind of a person. And I’m not brash about it; it’s just the way I am.
Nearly one in four women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime. And slightly more than half of female victims of domestic violence live in households with children under age 12.
I don’t usually talk about the social work I do because I don’t do it for publicity. If I can bring a smile to the face of a few children in this one lifetime, I’d be happy.

The romantic person instinctively sees marriage in terms of emotions, but what a couple actually gets up to together over a lifetime has much more in common with the workings of a small business. They must draw up work rosters, clean, chauffeur, cook, fix, throw away, mind, hire, fire, reconcile, and budget.
One lifetime is never enough to accomplish one’s horticultural goals. If a garden is a site for the imagination, how can we be very far from the beginning?

Bill Rodgers
What if these events the Bible says will happen, happens in our lifetime?
Joel C. Rosenberg
Shirley Jackson enjoyed notoriety and commercial success within her lifetime, and yet it still hardly seems like enough for a writer so singular. When I meet readers and other writers of my generation, I find that mentioning her is like uttering a holy name.
I was overjoyed when I was offered the title role in ‘Well Done Abba.’ I was ready for the role even before I heard the story because you don’t ask questions when it is Shyam Benegal’s film. It is the chance of a lifetime.

Brian Lumley

After a lifetime of feeling at home in my plus-size body, I was a 27-year-old having self-esteem issues. Clothes shopping stopped being fun and became a chore; I couldn’t wear the curve-showing styles I loved without Spanx – and I worried that my new body would affect my training.

I look at actors like Johnny Depp, Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro, and they play all these different characters. I’m hoping that, in my lifetime, I’ll be able to look back and say, ‘You know what? I did all these different characters, and I enjoyed every single film I did.’
Efren Ramirez

Why should I be worried about dying? It’s not going to happen in my lifetime!
Raymond Smullyan

Jocelyn Wildenstein

Space doesn’t offer an escape from Earth’s problems. And even with nuclear fuel, the transit time to nearby stars exceeds a human lifetime. Interstellar travel is therefore, in my view, an enterprise for post-humans, evolved from our species not via natural selection, but by design.
Man is born in a day, and he dies in a day, and the thing is easily over; but to have a sick heart for three-fourths of one’s lifetime is simply to have death renewed every morning; and life at that price is not worth living.

Irma S. Rombauer

I was a human rights lawyer for 20 years, I believed th

I was a human rights lawyer for 20 years, I believed those values of dignity, equality and non-discrimination were a given. believed the only question in my lifetime would be – how much further do we extend those values?

If you’re a Supreme Court justice, the American people have elevated you to one of the highest offices in the land out of the goodness of their heart and out of deference to your legal wisdom.

It turns out, all the studies show you invest a little time in another person’s life, often a younger person, and all of us have that capacity to do it, just an hour a week, an hour every couple of weeks, and you can make a tremendous difference in a kid’s life over their lifetime.
I would say that during my lifetime, one of the worst political scandals in Sweden was absolutely what happened surrounding the affair of the submarines in Swedish waters in 1982, where there were supposed to be Russian submarines close to Stockholm. And the military of Sweden never got one up.

Graham McTavish
Treat your customers like lifetime partners.

I want to see where and how far I can go as an artist. I look back and see what I’ve done, and I want to do as much as I can in my lifetime. I love doing it. If I didn’t have that passion or love for it, I wouldn’t do it.

Our lifetime may be the last that will be lived out in a technological society.
After a lifetime of losing and gaining weight, I get it. No matter how you slice it, weight loss comes down to the simple formula of calories in, calories out.

When you challenge other people’s ideas of who or how you should be, they may try to diminish and disgrace you. It can happen in small ways in hidden places, or in big ways on a world stage.

Joseph Murray
The concentration of U.S. income and wealth in the hands of the very rich is a new development in my lifetime.

Amanda Crew
People spend a lifetime thinking about how they would really like to live. I asked my friends and no one seems to know very clearly. To me it’s very clear now. I wish my life could have been like the years when I was writing ‘Love in the Time of Cholera.’

I put steam on the table by being an actor. That is how I live. The longer I live, the more expensive it becomes. So I do my work. And I can’t be immensely picky. How many beautiful scripts come in one’s lifetime? I have had more than anybody, practically.
One of the most fun inventions of my lifetime is the Mini.
We spend a lot of time training and retraining. It’s heartbreaking because our education system has failed all of us. And again you go to China, even Mexico, Brazil the education systems are valuedours are not in this country at K-12 level. It’s amazing how that change has transpired in my lifetime.

Adlai Stevenson II

I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift of intelligence, and for life, love, wonder, and laughter. You can’t say it wasn’t interesting. My lifetime’s memories are what I have brought home from the trip.

As you can appreciate over my lifetime I’ve developed a large vocabulary of sounds each requiring certain physical techniques often combined with a specific effect box.
