Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There’s not some trick involved with it. It’s pure and it’s real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things.
To find out your real opinion of someone, judge the impression you have when you first see a letter from them.
He that rebels against reason is a real rebel, but he that in defence of reason rebels against tyranny has a better title to Defender of the Faith, than George the Third.
Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.
I’m a real big celebrity. I’m this megastar.
The tragedy of modern war is that the young men die fighting each other – instead of their real enemies back home in the capitals.
I’ve often said that all poetry is political. This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making. Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics.
Yehuda Amichai
I am a generous man, by nature, and far more trusting than I should be. Indeed. The real world is risky territory for people with generosity of spirit. Beware.
And I have to work so hard at talking positively to myself. If I don’t, it’s just real hard to get through the day, and I’ll get really down, and just want to cry. My whole body language changes. I get more slumped over.
He isn’t a real boss until he has trained subordinates to shoulder most of his responsibilities.
I tend to be so lost in the work that I don’t notice the weather. My partner will come home and say, ‘Beautiful day, wasn’t it?’ and I’ll say, ‘Was it?’ as I won’t have noticed the real world at all.
In real life, wolves will do anything to avoid contact with mankind.
The drummer is the backbone of the band and is the real underrated one.
‘Hurt Village‘ is based on a real housing project in Memphis, about three minutes away from the Lorraine Hotel where Dr. King was assassinated, so in my work I’m focusing on a very specific area in Memphis. I see ‘Hurt Village’ as a natural extension of ‘The Mountaintop.’
Every revolution has its counterrevolution – that is a sign the revolution is for real.
C. Wright Mills
People bought bitcoin because they thought it would be worth more tomorrow. And a lot of people got lucky. But we’re not seeing real people use bitcoin. And we don’t know what problem it solves. Now, blockchain, I think, is a genius advancement in technology.
I’ve been very careful to always make clear that I am a real person. That’s why I’m on social media a lot.
Real Madrid is a club where you have to go when you are mature and at the top of your game.
Mathematics is a place where you can do things which you can’t do in the real world.
People think that it is important to learn by assisting the great photographers. I say that is a big mistake. Be happy; just learn from any little guy. Learn how to use the camera – you don’t need anything else. You can’t be taught the real skill anyway.
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.
Swimming gave me my start, but my pal Tarzan did the real work. He set me up nicely.
Johnny Weissmuller
Any mind that is capable of real sorrow is capable of good.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Man’s real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.
We have long observed that every neurosis has the result, and therefore probably the purpose, of forcing the patient out of real life, of alienating him from actuality.
In real life, it is the hare who wins. Every time. Look

In real life, it is the hare who wins. Every time. Look around you. And in any case it is my contention that Aesop was writing for the tortoise market. Hares have no time to read. They are too busy winning the game.
Nobody complains that Bernini’s sculptures are too darn real, right? Or that Norman Rockwell’s paintings are too creepy. Well, robots can seem real and be loved, too. We’re trying to make a new art medium out of robotics.
David Hanson
At every step the child should be allowed to meet the real experience of life; the thorns should never be plucked from his roses.
The only real elegance is in the mind; if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it.
Diana Vreeland
In a very real sense, it will not be one man going to the moon it will be an entire nation. For all of us must work to put him there.
The real use of gunpowder is to make all men tall.
Life is so fresh, life is every day so new if we are fighting, only for the best. Sometimes I think the only real satisfaction in life is failure, failure in your endeavor to do your best.
Maude Adams
To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.
The more real and genuine we are about ourselves, the more others will know that there is no shame in struggling, or feeling low, or anxious or having bad days – we all have them.
We live in a disposable, ‘cast-off and throw-away’ society that has largely lost any real sense of permanence. Ours is a world of expiration dates, limited shelf life, and planned obsolescence. Nothing is absolute.

Even paranoids have real enemies.
My father always used to say that when you die, if you’ve got five real friends, then you’ve had a great life.

But the real secret to lifelong good health is actually the opposite: Let your body take care of you.
Poor eating habits developed at an early age lead to a lifetime of real health consequences.
Richard J. Codey
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
I don’t care what people think of me, unless they think I’m mean or something, but I don’t care if they think I’m like someone else because I know I’m not – I’m a total weirdo. I’m not selling a dream; I’m not selling fame like it is some sort of fantastic thing. I’m just trying to sell music and get on with my real life.
And the nice thing about writing a novel is you take your time, you sit with the character sometimes nine years, you look very deeply at a situation, unlike in real life when we just kind of snap something out.
You can only perceive real beauty in a person as they get older.
Anouk Aimee
Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal.
Mary Baker Eddy
I have six brothers and sisters. My mother has six kids from two different marriages. And we would just sit around making fun of each other’s dad, and all our dads had real problems.

That’s what all art’s about – a sense of moving away from boundaries that you can’t in real life. Like a dancer is always trying to fly, really – to do something that’s just not possible. But you try to do as much as you can within those physical boundaries.
Coming up with ideas isn’t hard. The real challenge is finding the time to actually build something and then finding a home for it.
Be unpredictable, be real, be interesting. Tell a good story.
James Dashner
If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn't wor

If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn’t worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it’s life or death.
Real life is hard. I’m sorry, but shopping at Tesco is not as much fun as writing jokes for TV shows, and I struggle with it.
The real and lasting victories are those of peace, and not of war.
The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
I have struck a city – a real city – and they call it Chicago… I urgently desire never to see it again. It is inhabited by savages.
I don’t like to talk about typical things in my music – my music is more about real life situations.
If you cannot learn to love real art, at least learn to hate sham art and reject it.

When you boil down the real facts and statistics of what carbon dioxide is doing to this planet… to not feel like you have to do something… I don’t think you’re human.
A. J. Buckley
I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.
Without black, no color has any depth. But if you mix black with everything, suddenly there’s shadow – no, not just shadow, but fullness. You’ve got to be willing to mix black into your palette if you want to create something that’s real.
Dying is an art, like everything else. I do it exceptionally well. I do it so it feels like hell. I do it so it feels real. I guess you could say I’ve a call.
You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
Frank Zappa
I really love the togetherness in baseball. That’s a real true love.
Billy Martin
Even if I ain’t the famous-est, the richest, the best – as long as I know I kept it real and didn’t backstab nobody – I sleep good at night.
21 Savage
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.
The trite saying that honesty is the best policy has met with the just criticism that honesty is not policy. The real honest man is honest from conviction of what is right, not from policy.
At Real Madrid there is always pressure to win.
The real beauty of it – key to my life was playing key chords on a banjo. For somebody else it may be a golf club that mom and dad put in their hands or a baseball or ballet lessons. Real gift to give to me and put it in writing.
Friendships born on the field of athletic strife are the real gold of competition. Awards become corroded, friends gather no dust.
Jesse Owens
After adjusting for inflation, the average income of the top 5% of households grew by 38% from 1989 to 2013. By comparison, the average real income of the other 95% of households grew less than 10%.
All phenomena are real in some sense, unreal in some sense, meaningless in some sense, real and meaningless in some sense, unreal and meaningless in some sense, and real and unreal and meaningless in some sense.
Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?
Compared to politics, I think sports is funnier, because it’s inconsequential. And politics can be real important and all that. The more pointless something is, the funnier it is, you know? And the more grave or important things are… You know, some comedians can get this disease where they get serious all the time.
Unlike ‘real relationships’, ‘virtual relationships’ are easy to enter and to exit. They look smart and clean, feel easy to use, when compared with the heavy, slow-moving, messy real stuff.
I never force myself to be devout except when I feel so inspired, and never compose hymns of prayers unless I feel within me real and true devotion.
It’s not about the past; it’s about knowing your history so that you can fight in the present. Otherwise, you don’t know who the real enemy is, what the real issue is, because it had been covered by many layers of bad information, of lies, and manipulation.
History does nothing; it does not possess immense riches, it does not fight battles. It is men, real, living, who do all this.
Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.
Arnold Newman
Real living is living for others.
Bruce Lee
We all need somebody to talk to. It would be good if we talked… not just pitter-patter, but real talk. We shouldn’t be so afraid, because most people really like this contact; that you show you are vulnerable makes them free to be vulnerable.
Liv Ullmann
When truth is no longer free, freedom is no longer real

When truth is no longer free, freedom is no longer real: the truths of the police are the truths of today.
Jacques Prevert
What we call real estate – the solid ground to build a house on – is the broad foundation on which nearly all the guilt of this world rests.
To be successful in real estate, you must always and consistently put your clientsbest interests first. When you do, your personal needs will be realized beyond your greatest expectations.
Anthony Hitt
On sensitive issues, talk isn’t cheap – it takes real courage to pry open topics nailed shut.
One forgets too easily the difference between a man and his image, and that there is none between the sound of his voice on the screen and in real life.
The true way to be humble is not to stoop until you are smaller than yourself, but to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you what the real smallness of your greatness is.
The Internet is such… it’s so not real. But it’s big and it feels big when you’re on it.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
The greatest error of a man is to think that he is weak by nature, evil by nature. Every man is divine and strong in his real nature. What are weak and evil are his habits, his desires and thoughts, but not himself.
There’s a real wisdom to not saying a thing.
I don’t think that everyone should become a mathematician, but I do believe that many students don’t give mathematics a real chance.
Maryam Mirzakhani
Real leadership is leaders recognizing that they serve the people that they lead.

The lowest form of popular culture – lack of information, misinformation, disinformation, and a contempt for the truth or the reality of most people’s lives – has overrun real journalism. Today, ordinary Americans are being stuffed with garbage.
Carl Bernstein
Fear doesn’t exist in football, especially for Real Madrid.
The measure of a man’s real character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
My interviewing style and my approach to things is that, yes, it’s okay to be sincere; it’s okay to be yourself; it’s okay to be real.
I’m no model lady. A model’s just an imitation of the real thing.
I enjoy every moment of playing for Real Madrid and naturally, I give it everything I’ve got. I do all I can to make sure the fans enjoy the football and that Madrid are always at the top, which is where they belong.
Pro wrestling is not fake; it’s sports entertainment. We go out there and we perform, and a lot of what we do out there is real, but we’re not going to insult anyone’s intelligence – there is a predetermined winner. It’s just the fans don’t know who it is, and that’s what makes it so intriguing.
Ultimately, education in its real sense is the pursuit of truth. It is an endless journey through knowledge and enlightenment.
Our lyrics deal with real issues that face all humans: choices in life, depression, self-esteem. And the fans know that we are there for them, and they are there for us.
True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island… to find one real friend in a lifetime is good fortune; to keep him is a blessing.
I would honestly say the biggest thing for cold weather is a good face moisturizer with SPF. Winters are harsh, wind chill‘s real, and, a lot of the time, it’s a really dry climate, and so your lips will crack, your face will start to get dry, your nose will peel; it’s easy to get sunburnt, windburnt.
Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
Saint Francis de Sales
There is no stronger case for the motivational power of real science than the discoveries that come from the Hubble Space Telescope as it unravels the mysteries of the universe.
The research rat of the future allows experimentation without manipulation of the real world. This is the cutting edge of modeling technology.
John Spencer
My responsibility isn’t to paint a flattering portrait; my responsibility is to paint a real portrait, a true portrait.
My real name is Amanda Rose Saccomanno, so a lot of people don’t know that, but Rose is kind of special in my family as my grandma‘s name is Rosemary, my mom’s name is Mary Rose, I’m Amanda Rose, my niece is Demi Rose.
There’s only one requirement of any of us, and that is to be courageous. Because courage, as you might know, defines all other human behavior. And, I believe – because I’ve done a little of this myself – pretending to be courageous is just as good as the real thing.
The real discovery is the one which enables me to stop doing philosophy when I want to. The one that gives philosophy peace, so that it is no longer tormented by questions which bring itself into question.
Authenticity can't be replicated or faked. You're eithe

Authenticity can’t be replicated or faked. You’re either real or you’re not.
There’s something special about racing in real streets. The ‘artificial‘ circuits have a certain sameness to them. But every race conducted on real streets has a character of its own – Barcelona, Monaco, and now Long Beach.
Real friendship, like real poetry, is extremely rare – and precious as a pearl.
Everything tends to make us believe that there exists a certain point of the mind at which life and death, the real and the imagined, past and future, the communicable and the incommunicable, high and low, cease to be perceived as contradictions.
Andre Breton
What gives you real power is when you know your power. And I feel quite powerful.
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen
I’m a real rebel with a cause.
All of us make mistakes. The key is to acknowledge them, learn, and move on. The real sin is ignoring mistakes, or worse, seeking to hide them.
Robert Zoellick
When I look back at that freedom of childhood, which is in a way infinite, and at all the joy and the intense happiness, now lost, I sometimes think that childhood is where the real meaning of life is located, and that we, adults, are its servants – that that’s our purpose.
Fake friends believe in rumors. Real friends believe in you.
Walking in the mountains helps me unwind, but it also reminds me in a painful way that the real beauty in life is nature and animals, and that the human race, in all its arrogance, is intent on destroying it.
When you are a starting Real Madrid player, you have to think big. Think of the Ballon d’Or, FIFA‘s World XI.
Every journey into the past is complicated by delusions, false memories, false namings of real events.
No real blood flows in the veins of the knowing subject constructed by Locke, Hume, and Kant, but rather the diluted extract of reason as a mere activity of thought.
Wilhelm Dilthey
Everyone is a genius at least once a year. The real geniuses simply have their bright ideas closer together.
I came from a real tough neighborhood. I put my hand in some cement and felt another hand.
If we don’t figure out a way to create equity, real equity, of opportunity and access, to good schools, housing, health care, and decent paying jobs, we’re not going to survive as a productive and healthy society.
People recognize intellectual property the same way they recognize real estate. People understand what property is. But it’s a new kind of property, and so the understanding uses new control surfaces. It uses a new way of defining the property.
Vinyl is the real deal. I’ve always felt like, until you buy the vinyl record, you don’t really own the album. And it’s not just me or a little pet thing or some kind of retro romantic thing from the past. It is still alive.
America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense human rights invented America.
When I played Robert Howard in ‘The Whole Wide World‘, I was struggling with it. There’s this dual thing where you feel real good about being able to play this juicy part, and then there’s constant shame: ‘Who am I to pretend to know who this guy was? Who am I to represent this guy for people who never knew him?’
When there is a Brazilian who is lighting things up, he is at Real Madrid before you know it!
Global warming is real – it is man-made and it is an important problem. But it is not the end of the world.
A radical inner transformation and rise to a new level of consciousness might be the only real hope we have in the current global crisis brought on by the dominance of the Western mechanistic paradigm.
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.
Real life is messy, and drama is a shaped version of real life.
Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.
The real and effectual discipline which is exercised over a workman is that of his customers. It is the fear of losing their employment which restrains his frauds and corrects his negligence.
Being irrational and out of control is what happens in real life. Not cautiously choreographing your anger or your emotions, losing yourself in them is what happens in real life.
When you play in a great club like Real Madrid, it’s hard to stay here.
Karim Benzema
If everyone howled at every injustice, every act of bar

If everyone howled at every injustice, every act of barbarism, every act of unkindness, then we would be taking the first step towards a real humanity.
Nelson DeMille
There can be no real freedom without the freedom to fail.
As long as you keep one foot in the real world while the other foot’s in a fairy tale, that fairy tale is going to seem kind of attainable.
It is a universal truth that the loss of liberty at home is to be charged to the provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad.
You can’t relate to a superhero, to a superman, but you can identify with a real man who in times of crisis draws forth some extraordinary quality from within himself and triumphs but only after a struggle.
Timothy Dalton
Drones photograph, prospect and advertise real estate from golf courses to skyscrapers; they also monitor construction in progress.
Sometimes, whether you like it or not, people elevate you. It’s real easy to fall.
Compared to politics, I think sports is funnier, because it’s inconsequential. And politics can be real important and all that. The more pointless something is, the funnier it is, you know?
There can be no greater error than to expect, or calculate, upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard.
Video games are a waste of time for men with nothing else to do. Real brains don’t do that.
Poetry is the art of creating imaginary gardens with real toads.
Marianne Moore
Dreaming means ‘rehearsing‘ what you see, playing it over and over in your mind until it becomes as real to you as your life right now.
I don’t love Photoshop; I like imperfection. It doesn’t mean ugly. I love a girl with a gap between her teeth, versus perfect white veneers. Perfection is just… boring. Perfect is what’s natural or real; that is beauty.
Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.
I was on MTV’s ‘Real World’ at the time when ‘Queer Eye’ came out. I remember, the first time I won an award, I got the award, and they were like, ‘It’s a tie! With ‘Queer Eye!” I never thought that I would one day follow in their footsteps.
A real failure does not need an excuse. It is an end in itself.
The day is not far off when the economic problem will take the back seat where it belongs, and the arena of the heart and the head will be occupied or reoccupied, by our real problems – the problems of life and of human relations, of creation and behavior and religion.
Real art is basic emotion. If a scene is handled with simplicity – and I don’t mean simple – it’ll be good, and the public will know it.
They say the first World Series is the one you remember most. No, no no. I guarantee you don’t remember that one because the fantasy world you always dreamed about is suddenly real.
Sparky Anderson
I became real good friends with John Stockton and Karl Malone and am still good friends with them to this day. It was always good to go see them and then play with them in the 1996 Olympics as well. I idolized John Stockton at the time, I tried to model my game after him.
A real gentleman, even if he loses everything he owns, must show no emotion. Money must be so far beneath a gentleman that it is hardly worth troubling about.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
The real meaning of enlightenment is to gaze with undimmed eyes on all darkness.
I think we are all interested in end-times ideas and also in the current climate that we are all living in, where money is a little harder to come by, things continue to get expensive; gas prices are not too far from people’s heads. There are more and more people. Human society’s going to have real problems.
The real business of life is trying to understand each other.
Gilbert Parker
And it’s all just from word of mouth. No big marketing. That means the folk who come to the gigs are there ’cause they love their tunes. That means it’s real.
Gerry Cinnamon
Men are not the enemy, but the fellow victims. The real enemy is women’s denigration of themselves.
Betty Friedan
Floyd has showed me that he’s set up with real estate, businesses, and investments.
Aliens are definitely real.
In order to rally people, governments need enemies… if they do not have a real enemy, they will invent one in order to mobilize us.
I’m a real extrovert, but when I’m round someone new, I’m super shy.
Desire is poverty. Desire is the greatest impurity of the mind. Desire is the motive force for action. Desire in the mind is the real impurity. Even a spark of desire is a very great evil.
Comedy is only funny when there's real pain.

Comedy is only funny when there’s real pain.
The only real things in life is the unexpected things. Everything else is just an illusion.
My emotion is real, and my everyday life is filled with the same feeling.
Sister Rosetta Tharpe
Etretat is becoming more and more amazing. Now is the real moment: the beach with all its fine boats; it is superb, and I am enraged not to be more skillful in rendering all this. I would need two hands and hundreds of canvases.
I punch a lot of guys on set. It’s much easier than in real life as your hands don’t hurt afterwards. The key is that you miss.
I want to be a force for real good. In other words. I know that there are bad forces, forces that bring suffering to others and misery to the world, but I want to be the opposite force. I want to be the force which is truly for good.
Postpartum depression is a very real and very serious problem for many mothers. It can happen to a first time mom or a veteran mother. It can occur a few days… or a few months after childbirth.
Richard J. Codey
A test of what is real is that it is hard and rough. Joys are found in it, not pleasure. What is pleasant belongs to dreams.
Real heroes are all around us and uncelebrated.
The more closely you get in touch with your dreams, the more able you are to make them real. The more vividly you consider how you want your world to be, the more real and effective tools you will have for making it so.
The ode lives upon the ideal, the epic upon the grandiose, the drama upon the real.
The real key to making money in stocks is not to get scared out of them.
Peter Lynch
Women are the real architects of society.
Football has been my life and Real Madrid my home and together we have lived unique moments.
When I started out, everyone seemed to be adopting these names… Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious. I wasn’t really Rotten or Vicious or Nasty, so I wanted something a bit more funny – yet something that seemed real rock ‘n’ roll… something that acknowledged my ambition.
Billy Idol
The media transforms the great silence of things into its opposite. Formerly constituting a secret, the real now talks constantly. News reports, information, statistics, and surveys are everywhere.
Michel De Certeau
Contentment is the only real wealth.
If time is not real, then the dividing line between this world and eternity, between suffering and bliss, between good and evil, is also an illusion.
Death is really a great blessing for humanity, without it there could be no real progress. People who lived for ever would not only hamper and discourage the young, but they would themselves lack sufficient stimulus to be creative.
Well it seems to me, that all real communities grow out of a shared confrontation with survival. Communities are not produced by sentiment or mere goodwill. They grow out of a shared struggle. Our situation in the desert is an incubator for community.
The real truth is that the Obama administration is professional at bullying, as we have witnessed with ACORN at work during the presidential campaign. It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don’t want a government-run health care plan forced upon them.
The real evil with which we have to contend is not the physical evil of the Famine, but the moral evil of the selfish, perverse and turbulent character of the people.
Charles Trevelyan
Most good actors have a huge intelligence about the human condition and a real open heart to different kinds of people and behavior.
The Real is ever-present, like the screen on which the cinematographic pictures move. While the picture appears on it, the screen remains invisible. Stop the picture, and the screen will become clear. All thoughts and events are merely pictures moving on the screen of Pure Consciousness, which alone is real.
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
I think there’s a real sex appeal to vampires. They’re very sexy.
Danielle Rose Russell
It’s a real pleasure to earn the trust of your customers slowly over time by doing what’s right.
I don’t know who’s left to hear us. But if there are people who want the real thing, we’ve got it. My band rocks, and I plan to keep doing it ’till nobody shows up to see it anymore.
Ronnie Hawkins
To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
I am completely fascinated by the differences and comparisons between real life and fairy tales because we’re raised as little girls to think that we’re a princess and that Prince Charming is going to sweep us off our feet.
The real world is the fantasy writer‘s scrapbook. Real history, real geography, real customs and religions are all invaluable sources of guidance and inspiration.
Lynn Flewelling
In the 'Nude Descending a Staircase,' I wanted to creat

In the ‘Nude Descending a Staircase,’ I wanted to create a static image of movement: movement is an abstraction, a deduction articulated within the painting, without our knowing if a real person is or isn’t descending an equally real staircase.
The real leader has no need to lead – he is content to point the way.
I know why I am here and my only real focused goal is to live each day to the fullest and to try and honor God and be an encouragement to others. What the future holds is firmly in God’s hands, and I am very happy about that!
Ken Hensley
I would like to be remembered as a guy who had a set of priorities, and was willing to live by those priorities. In terms of accomplishments, my biggest accomplishment is that I kept the country safe amidst a real danger.
The Church is the new creation, it is life and joy, it is the sacramental fellowship in which we share the ultimate purpose of God, made real for us now in our hearing the Word and sharing the Sacrament.
The effects of climate change are real and must be acted on.
There’s always the hyena of morality at the garden gate, and the real wolf at the end of the street.
What I’ve enjoyed most, though, is meeting people who have a real interest in food and sharing ideas with them. Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn – I love it!
All the real work is done in the rehearsal period.
I burp, I fart. I’m a real woman.
Sexual harassment and gender discrimination is real, it’s far more pervasive than I think people have been willing to acknowledge.

The social brain is in its natural habitat when we’re talking with someone face-to-face in real time.

We are all shaped by where we grow up, though that shaping takes different forms. I don’t think there’s any doubt that coming of age in Winnipeg both opened my eyes and made me hungry – if I can subvert all claims to be a real writer by mixing metaphors like that.
Memories are thoughts that arise. They’re not realities. Only when you believe that they are real, then they have the power over you.

It’s challenging to take on something else that is not you and make it very real and have others be able to associate with it. It’s wonderful to provoke thought.

I’ve always had this American-pie face that would get work in commercials… I’d say things like, ‘Hi, Marge, how’s your laundry?’ and ‘Hi, I’m a real nice Georgia peach.’ Sometimes this work is one step above being a cocktail waitress.
The real test of friendship is: can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?
Imaginary pains are by far the most real we suffer, sin

J. P. Morgan
I was never the smartest guy in the room. From the first person I hired, I was never the smartest guy in the room. And that’s a big deal. And if you’re going to be a leader – if you’re a leader and you’re the smartest guy in the world – in the room, you’ve got real problems.
I’m proud to play for Real Madrid because I have fun; when you no longer have fun it’s a sign that it’s time to leave. For now though, I’m happy here at the greatest club in the world.

I blew through all my money and made some very bad decisions. I had this scam artist scam me real bad and was embezzled over $175,000.
Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second, and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.
Real knowledge, like everything else of value, is not to be obtained easily. It must be worked for, studied for, thought for, and, more that all, must be prayed for.
Thomas Arnold
I’ve been asked many times if I considered myself a narcissist, so I looked up the real meaning of the word, and I came to the conclusion that indeed I am one. I think of myself as better than other people, not every person, but many, unique and talented, and I aim to success.
The aspiring tyrants of today have not forgotten the lesson of 1933: that acts of terror – real or fake, provoked or accidental – can provide the occasion to deal a death blow to democracy.

Good fiction is made of that which is real, and reality is difficult to come by.
Ralph Ellison
It’s possible to spend every waking hour here on the ninth floor and not get out of the office. And this isn’t the real world in here. And contrary to public opinion, I’m not incredibly poll-driven.

If you want to be a real human being – a real woman, a real man – you cannot tolerate things which put you to indignation, to outrage. You must stand up. I always say to people, ‘Look around; look at what makes you unhappy, what makes you furious, and then engage yourself in some action.’
Stephane Hessel
The real trouble with war (modern war) is that it gives no one a chance to kill the right people.
Amateurs wait for inspiration. The real pros get up and go to work.
I love my job. I don’t find it stressful, and I only took a rest because I didn’t find another club after Real. It was not something that I needed because of stress, because that is not a problem for me. I don’t have pressure. I like my job, and I know how it is. I have experience.

People are apprehensive about finding ‘The Leftovers‘ funny because it’s such a dark circumstance, but I think, really, what the show is about is examining how different people deal with loss. There are elements of humour and levity and irony in that… just like in real life.
Real Madrid are obliged to win always – this jersey makes it an obligation.
We know the history of players at Real Madrid and things are not easy at that club.

The other night I ate at a real nice family restaurant. Every table had an argument going.

You grow up the day you have the first real laugh at yourself.
Ethel Barrymore
With me, Bobby Fish, and Kyle O’Reilly, I know on-screen we are these brothers whose bond can’t be broken, and we are this faction. I promise you, it’s very real behind the scenes, too. I’ve known those guys for years. We travel together all the time; we talk every single day.
I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?
It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.

Dad’s Jewish and Irish, Mom’s German and Scotch. I couldn’t say I was anything. My last name isn’t even Downey. My dad changed his name when he wanted to get into the Army and was underage. My real name is Robert Elias. I feel like I’m still looking for a home in some way.
The real mechanism for corporate governance is the active involvement of the owners.
In sports, you simply aren’t considered a real champion until you have defended your title successfully. Winning it once can be a fluke; winning it twice proves you are the best.

The real fact is that I could no longer stand their eternal cold mutton.
Cecil Rhodes
Dreams are real as long as they last. Can we say more of life?

Dan Ariely
All that is real is reasonable, and all that is reasonable is real.
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
