In this post, you will find great Sometimes Quotes from famous people, such as Layne Staley, Kris Jenner, Sharon Tate, Phoebe Snow, Charles Barkley. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
If you’re differently-abled, if you’re a person of color, if you express your identity in a way that’s different from the norm, for whatever reason, there’s an implicitbias where people, frankly, sometimes take you less seriously.
If you’re climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don’t look too far up, set your goalshigh but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don’t think you’re progressinguntil you step back and see how high you’ve really gone.
I gotta be honest with you. I’m kind of jealous of the way my dadgets to talk to my mom sometimes. Where are all those old-school women you can just take your day out on? When did they stop making those angels?
Sometimes I sit down and I think ‘Do I regret this? Do I regret that?’ And I feel like everything makes this snowballeffect, you know? If you regret something, it’s good because it just means that it’s something that’s affected you enough for you to stop and think… There’s a reason that everything happens.
Sometimes it’s easy to see the negative side of things or question why people bully you. You could think, ‘Maybe they’re right. Maybe I’m not worth it. Maybe I should just quit.’ But that’s when you should fight the hardest. Now I don’t mean fight physically, but mentally. Keep being you.
Sometimes over things that I did, movies that didn’t turn out very well – you go, ‘Why did you do that?’ But in the end, I can’t regret them because I met amazing people. There was always something that was worth it.
People sometimes turn out to be almost the opposite of how they present. It isn’t because they’re trying to fool you or because they’re hypocrites. It’s because they badly want to be that thing, and so they’ll try to be it.
We can never be afraid to stand up for what is right, no matter what others may say. And sometimes, if that means taking a lonelyroad, if what we are standing for is true, then perhapsmoonlight or sunshine will light our way and make it less lonely.
Remember, life itself is a mission. While we are on the go, we need to stop between steps to re-focus on the Word and the Will of God. While we are on the go, I mean, while we are on the mission, we need to sometimes stop at intervals to assess our progress and prepareourselves for the challenges ahead.
I don’t really know too many designers. I like a lot of what KanyeWest has done with Yeezy, but I think it’s a bit too, how you say, elevated; it’s a little bit too special. Like he’s trying to make something that’s kind of a little bit too cool sometimes.
I like having my picture taken and being a glamorous person. Sometimes when I find myself getting impatient, I just remember the times I cried my eyes out because nobody wanted to take my picture at the Trocadero.
Sometimes when you turn a hobby into a job, it becomes work.
Sometimes when we think about femininity, we think also fragile. But I think you can be feminine and very strong. I think make-up goes with that femininity. I think it’s a natural gesture for women and one they do more for themselves than for others.
People change with time. There are things that happened to a person in his childhood and years later they seem to him alien and strange. I am trying to decipher that child. Sometimes he is a stranger to me. When you think about when you were 14, don’t you feel a certain alienation?
I sometimes still feel I am living in a goldfish bowl, but I now manage it better. I still have a naughtystreak, too, which I enjoy and is how I relate to those individuals who have got themselves into trouble.
Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything… whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.
To be frank, it sometimes seems that the American idea of freedom has more to do with my freedom to do what I want than your freedom to do what you want. I think that, in Europe, we’re probably better at understanding how to balance those competingclaims, though not a lot.
I’m not saying that everyone should swim with sharks, but sometimes you have to jump over your own shadow in order to learn something that you will never forget for the rest of your life. Then you know you can conquer your fears.
Beetles and butterflies are sometimes restricted to small areas. Each mountain in a range, and even the different zones of a mountain, may have its own peculiarspecies. But the house-fly seems to be everywhere. I wonder if any island in mid-ocean is flyless.
We’ll tell fear it can come along with us in our minivan, okay? But we’ll just tell fear it can’t drive. Sometimes we’ll tell it to not even talk. Like when we tell our kids, ‘Enough. No words.’ We’re going to play the quiet game with fear. Fear is not the boss of us.
I like the level of fame that I have. You get nice tables in restaurants sometimes, but fame isn’t something that I find comfortable.
Tweets? That stuff kills conversation. And people taking pictures with their phone or recording you, sometimes surreptitiously, is creepy. They come up and just start talking to you, and you can see the red light on their phone.
Sometimes I think God loves the ones who most desperately ache and are most desperately lost – his or her wildest, most messed-up children – the way you’d ache and love a screwed-up rebeldaughter in juvenile hall.
When I grew up, the Devil was a reason why I had a headache or the Devil was the reason I got mad today. We always blamed the Devil. I think today when I say the Enemy, I like to make it broader. Sometimes the Enemy can be our own thoughts.
I think that when you get dressed in the morning, sometimes you’re really making a decision about your behaviorfor the day. Like if you put on flipflops, you’re saying: ‘Hope I don’t get chased today.’ ‘Be nice to people in sneakers.’
Sometimes evil is in the form of a malignant clown, and sometimes evil is in the form of policy and legislators, and sometimes it’s a grinning death mask and it has something more viscerally terrifying about it.
It is often useful, if an enemy happens to see you, to pretend that you have not seen him. Or it may sometimes be useful to pretend that you have other men with you. I did this once in the Boer War when, having crept up a donga to look at a Boer fort, I was seen by the enemy, and they came out to capture me.
Whenever I go out, so many people who respect me ask me what to do in a certain situation. A lot of times, I didn’t know the answers because sometimes I was going through the samesort of thing. But then later on, I would think of things that people told me.
Sometimes you have to be a diva. All the artists I admire from Madonna to Whitney to Mariah have all been called divas. If you are strong, if you have vision, if you are an artist, you have to do what you believe in. And if you get called a diva for it, then so what.
Luck always favours the brave. And you must remember that brave are the people who follow their heart; brave are the people who take chances in life. Which also means you have to say no sometimes. I believe the power of no is greater than yes.
I’ve never felt like I needed to change. I’ve always thought, ‘If you want somebody different, pick somebody else.’ But sure, criticism can sometimes still get to me. Some things are so malicious, they knock the wind out of you.
Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who’s sorry for a gnat or girl?
Sometimes I finish a movie, and I get used to a certain lifestyle, and when that stops, I get a bit lost for about a week. ‘No one is bringing me lunchanymore – I’ve got to go do that myself?’ I lose the main point of my focus.
If I hold back, I’m no good. I’m no good. I’d rather be good sometimes, than holding back all the time.
What I can’t tell with a photo I will tell with a painting, and what I can’t tell with a painting I will tell with a video or text sometimes, et cetera.
We live in a very chaotic world that sometimes we – it just seems like a mess. One of the reasons why we listen to music, and to great classical music in particular, is that everything is in an order and in a place and has a beauty that you see in nature, that you see and that people look for when they look for God.
Time is not a great healer. It is an indifferent and perfunctory one. Sometimes it does not heal at all. And sometimes when it seems to, no healing has been necessary.
Sometimes it takes a wake-up call, doesn’t it, to alert us to the fact that we’re hurrying through our livesinstead of actually living them; that we’re living the fast life instead of the good life. And I think, for many people, that wake-up call takes the form of an illness.
Every device there is in language is there to be used, if you will. Poets have got to enjoy themselves sometimes, and the twistings and convolutions of words, the inventions and contrivances, are all part of the joy that is part of the painful, voluntary work.
Snakes are sometimes perceived as evil, but they are also perceived as medicine. If you look at an ambulance, there’s the two snakes on the side of the ambulance. The caduceus, or the staff of Hermes, there’s the two snakes going up it, which means that the venom can also be healing.
You will often be in despair. You will sometimes think it’s the worst decision in your life. That’s fine. That’s not a sign your marriage has gone wrong. It’s a sign that it’s normal; it’s on track. And many of the hopes that took you into the marriage will have to die in order for the marriage to continue.
When we look at our justice system, we have this image of a balancingscale: truth and justice, right and wrong. But for years, our system has been lopsided, where it’s not about truth and justice or balance. It’s about being tough on crime, and sometimes that means you’re putting the wrong person behind bars.
‘Presence of God’ is really that understanding that sometimes when you step out of your own shoes and just open your ears and listen to what’s going on around you, you get answers to the questions you were asking.
I’m not everybody‘s cup of tea. But sometimes criticism can be hurtful. Be respectful. I’m a good piano player, I can sing well, I write good songs. If you don’t like it, fair enough. But give me a break.
Even the accomplished suffers setbacks sometimes. The more bitter the lessons, the greater the successes will be.
Not all journalists are really journalists. They ask such stupid questions sometimes, especially the newer ones, and because… these people can’t tell if you’re joking around, you just can’t have any sense of humour; you really can’t.
If you are bowling well and not getting wickets, it’s not a big issue. Sometimes I am economical, but not getting enough wickets. But if I am not bowling well and not getting wickets, then it’s a disturbing thing.
I always have a beard between jobs. I just let it grow until they pay me to shave it. People are quite surprised it’s ginger. Sometimes they ask me if dye my hair and I always say ‘Wow, no!’ I’m ‘trans-ginger.’
The bad thing about being a famouscomedian is that every now and then someone approaches me to tell an old joke. Don’t tell me jokes – I have that. People also say the weirdest things, sometimes sarcastic things, and even evil things. They like to provoke to get a reaction.
A healthy friendship is one where you share your true feelings without fearing the end of the relationship. It’s also one where you sometimes have to let things that bug you slide. The tough moments will make you wiser about yourself and each other. They will also make you stronger and closer as friends.
Usually I start with a beat, I start making a beat, and my producer side is making the beat. And on a good day, my rapper side will jump in and start the writingprocess – maybe come up with a hook or start a verse. Sometimes it just happens like that. A song like ‘LightsPlease‘ happens like that.
I look at my clarinet sometimes and I think, I wonder what’s going to come out of there tonight? You never know.
We are not trying to reinvent the wheel. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes you have your off days. We have a way of going about things. Basically we are positive people trying to improveplayers and teams.
I do really long DJ sets – I play for five or six hours sometimes – but the live shows are a bit more compact. The arch of how to tell a story, where the energy is, where you have peaks and drops, where things go up and things come down, that’s all being informed by DJ-ing.
It’s not the tools that you have faith in – tools are just tools. They work, or they don’t work. It’s people you have faith in or not. Yeah, sure, I’m still optimistic I mean, I get pessimistic sometimes but not for long.
I learned to run backwards from Muhammad Ali. He told me about running backwards because you try to imitate everything you do in the ring, so sometimes you back up. So you have to train your legs to go backwards.
Sometimes you don’t want to get married too much to a lot of rehearsing, I feel, when it comes to film, because there’s so many technicalities. So if I’m in my head, I’ve gottensettled on something, I’m gonna have to change it if I get there and something was set that’s completely different.
I’m very open and honest, and I feel like it’s important for women to hear that we’re not perfect; none of us are perfect. And sometimes we aspire to have these ideas in our heads of what perfection is, and I probably would’ve been better off if I’d left myself alone.
There are times when I get really depressed, when I’m going through difficult times and when I want someone to hold my hand. Sometimes I’ll think, ‘Forget it. I want to be this way.’ I often feel that way. But when we started the Love Yourself World Tour, I stopped having those thoughts.
Don’t focus on the negativity. Focus on the positivity and the people that want you to do well; then, do it for them and for yourself. Sometimes I do things for myself. Sometimes I do things for my family. Sometimes I do things for my friends.
Sometimes I feel like being an intellectual. Sometimes I like to just be aggressive and all the way in my feelings. Sometimes I might be emotional, or sometimes I might drag on the track and be lazy. I just like to share the different states of existence of Kevin Gates with the rest of the world.
Although I sometimes enjoy writing from an adult’s perspective, I feel dedicated to the coming of age story – that part of a young person‘s life where he must make a decision that will change his life forever. I still remember what it’s like to be twelve years old.
Racism comes in many different forms. Sometimes it’s subtle, and sometimes it’s overt. Sometimes it’s violent, and sometimes it’s harmless, but it’s definitely here. It’s something that I think we’re all guilty of, and we just have to make sure that we deal with our own personal racism in the right way.
Sometimes I try to concentrate on the story I would like to write, and I realize that what interests me is something elseentirely, or, rather, not anything precise but everything that does not fit in what I ought to write.
If you kiss on the first date and it’s not right, then there will be no second date. Sometimes it’s better to hold out and not kiss for a long time. I am a strong believer in kissing being very intimate, and the minute you kiss, the floodgates open for everything else.
Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.
There’s a finite amount of time on this planet for each of us. Sometimes, the only way we figure out how to deal with that reality – knowing that there will be an end to every story, and you don’t know how many chapters are left in your book – is by living in denial.
No man is so foolish but he may sometimes give another good counsel, and no man so wise that he may not easily err if he takes no other counsel than his own. He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master.
There’s no one else I would rather have as my manager than my mom because I know that she has our best interests at heart. Sometimes, it’s hard to separate manager mode from mom mode. I think as our manager, my mom will get more emotional about situations than she would if she was just our manager.
The best marriages are the ones where we can go out in the world and really put ourselves out there. A lot of times we’ll fail, and sometimes we’ll pull it off. But good marriages are when you can go home and know that your vulnerability will be honored as courage, and that you’ll find support.
Sometimes I wonder if we shall ever grow up in our politics and say definite things which mean something, or whether we shall always go on using generalities to which everyone can subscribe, and which mean very little.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Sometimes, what’s not said is just as important to the writing as what is said. As a writer, we have our voicesheard. I think that, at oftentimes, the ability to allow the dialogue to recede properly into the world of the film is also a really valid sort of way to be a writer, I think.
I’m very happy being me, although sometimes I’d love to be a bird so that I could fly.
Sometimes I lie awake at night, and ask, ‘Where have I gone wrong?’ Then a voice says to me, ‘This is going to take more than one night.’
Charles M. Schulz
If you look at life with any honesty and intelligence, it’s clear that human nature is dark, vile, selfish, and despondent. But I also see a force in human nature, namely grace, that sometimes works against our natural moral entropy.
My liberty is about living. It’s about spreading more love. Even though I was always a peaceful, loving individual, my music sometimes didn’t reflect that. But now it’s different. My music is reflecting the way I feel.
I need to celebrate life because I’m in a good spot, I work hard, and I am happy with who I am and happy with what I do for a living, and sometimes I just focus and overwhelm myself so much with the fights and getting better, that I just need to slow it down and enjoy life and enjoy training.
I think that true love, fairytales, the positive messages of positive stories – I don’t think those ever die. Sometimes we like to hide them in sarcasm or irony, but they are still there, and they still move us.
No parent is perfect; we all can look back and think of things we could’ve done to help our children be better prepared for adulthood. And sometimes it’s best to admit it to them and encourage them to learn from our mistakes.
My basic approach to interviewing is to ask the basic questions that might even sound naive, or not intellectual. Sometimes when you ask the simple questions like ‘Who are you?’ or ‘What do you do?’ you learn the most.
On the course, I sometimes eat a little sandwich or a slow-release energy bar – one on the front nine and one on the back nine. You’re out there five hours, so you have to keep eating. You’re going to burn at least 1,000 calories. I’ll try to take in about 400-600 calories during a round and drink water.
I am an American. I love my country and have great hopes for it. It is for this reason that I speak candidly and sometimes critically about it. I have benefited greatly from the freedom that exists in my country, and for this, I am eternallygrateful.
We don’t always have an accurate view of our own potential. I think most people who are frightened of public speaking and can’t imagine they might feel different as a result of training. Don’t assume you know how much potential you have. Sometimes the only way to know what you can do is to test yourself.
I’m not quite that difficult, even though maybe I’m a little bit bossy. But you know, in order to get things done, you do have to be a little bit bossy sometimes or tell people what you really want. Otherwise, things just don’t get done, do they?
Good luck happens to people who work hard for it. Sometimes people just fall into the honey pot, but I’ve consistently strived to create whatever good fortune I can get in my life – and consistently strive just as hard not to screw it up once I have it!
It’s your outlook on life that counts. If you take yourself lightly and don’t take yourself too seriously, pretty soon you can find the humor in our everyday lives. And sometimes it can be a lifesaver.
Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.
I have worked with some of the most important players, like Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, Kaka, Zidane, but the best are easy to work with because they are so professional. Their winning mentality, professionalism, helps the manager. Of course, sometimes I become angry, but usually my relationship with the players is calm.
I’ve discovered if you have a small circle of people you know you can rely on – in good times, bad times, happy times, sad times – who aren’t going to judge you and will, sometimes, just sit and listen to you without saying anything, then I think you’re very fortunate.
History isn’t something you look back at and say it was inevitable, it happens because people make decisions that are sometimes very impulsive and of the moment, but those moments are cumulativerealities.
Sometimes it’s hard to open up about your personal life, your relationship because you always want the music to be in the forefront. You want the music to be the biggestcarrier of everything that you represent.
Sometimes you have to take a risk if you want great things to happen.
Sometimes you have to disconnect to stay connected. Remember the old days when you had eye contact during a conversation? When everyone wasn’t looking down at a device in their hands? We’ve become so focused on that tiny screen that we forget the big picture, the people right in front of us.
It’s one of those things, like in sports and other situations in life, you’re going to have some adversities and some challenges that are similar to the race. You go uphill one moment and then you go downhill, but that’s life too. You’ve got to be willing to sometimes take it slow but keep going.
