I’m not an example for how people should live their lives. Never in my life would I ever set out to be an example for people on how to live their lives. If you need an example for how to live, then you just shouldn’t have been born. Straight up.
I’m 65 and I guess that puts me in with the geriatrics. But if there were fifteenmonths in every year, I’d only be 48. That’s the trouble with us. We number everything. Take women, for example. I think they deserve to have more than twelve years between the ages of 28 and 40.
I think there is a debate in the arts about, you know, whether we must strive for art for art’s sake, and you know, kind of try to keeppolitical debate out of our work. And to that I say, I’d like you to show me an example of, you know, this so-calledapolitical art. I don’t think there’s any such thing.
Raising a small child as a woman whiletravelling 10 months out of the year would, I believe, be something I would not be able or even want to do, although with the amazing example of Leila, I am no longer so sure.
Solemnity is proper in church, but things that are proper in church are not necessarily proper outside, and vice versa. For example, I can say a prayer while washing my teeth, but that does not mean I should wash my teeth in church.
There are things that I invented – the creaky geriatric robot that is always grumpy, for example, or the little wheelie guy, he’s not in the Hasbro lore. But kids love that stuff – this little guy as a pet on a chain. They gravitatetowards it.
People make suggestions on what to say all the time. I’ll give you an example; I don’t read what’s handed to me. People say, ‘Here, here’s your speech, or here’s an idea for a speech.’ They’re changed. Trust me.
The spaceshuttle was often used as an example of why you shouldn’t even attempt to make something reusable. But one failed experiment does not invalidate the greater goal. If that was the case, we’d never have had the light bulb.
Watching the completedversion of The Two Towers for example, I was very conscious of scenes – sometimes whole sequences – that I had seen being filmed or edited but which hadn’t made it into the final cut.
For myself, anyway, I think that recurring has been such a gift, because I’ve been able to work on a lot of shows that I’ve really had a lot of respect for before I went in, shows like ‘Friday Night Lights’ and ‘Nip/Tuck,’ for example.
Our friendship was based on my payouts. That wasn’t a friendship when – as, for example, it’s me, my friends, we are friends for many years, and it doesn’t matter for me what the position is, where they work; we simply are friends. And with Mr. Berezovsky, our friendship was based on my payoffs.
I always say as a celebrity you have two choices – you can be a celebrity, or you can be a role model. You can choose to just go to parties and do the red carpets and all that, or you can choose to be an example to these people.
You still get these waves of doubt that come over you, for example, when you get a bad review or you accept a part and think, ‘Oh, God, what have I just accepted? I can’t do that.’ I don’t think that’s something that will ever go away in me.
I’ll give you a great example of an issue that no one brought up during this Floridaprimary, the fact that we’re going to have a Chinese made oil rig put in place about 60 miles off the coast of Florida.
In my crankyold age, I actually prefer recording alone now, on ‘The Simpsons,’ for example, because I find that the director can just focus on what I’m doing and I can do a lot of variations. A lot of times, when I record with a group, I’ll stay after class for another hour or two.
It’s a very telling thing when you have children. You have to be there for them, you’ve got to set an example, when you’re not sure what your example is, and anyway the world is changing so fast you don’t know what is appropriate anymore.
The film was made in 1973. It was a golden time for people to experiment without risking, for example, AIDS. Today one has to be so much more careful and I don’t think a character like that could exist now.
As God has not made anything useless in this world, as all beings fulfill obligations or a role in the sublime drama of Creation, I cannot exempt from this duty, and small though it be, I too have a mission to fill, as for example: alleviating the sufferings of my fellowmen.
I would point out that if you’re a believer in the Bible, one would have to say the Great Flood is an example of climate change and that certainly wasn’t because mankind had overdeveloped hydrocarbon energy.
It really helps you to go through difficult situations by just thinking about it as being a big amount of work which you have to solve how to do. For example, I don’t feel very inspired when I act, I just act. That’s it.
He that gives good advice, builds with one hand; he that gives good counsel and example, builds with both; but he that gives good admonition and bad example, builds with one hand and pulls down with the other.
Learn from me, if not by my precepts, then by my example, how dangerous is the pursuit of knowledge and how muchhappier is that man who believes his native town to be the world than he who aspires to be greater than his nature will allow.
Time and space always change, but there is something which is eternal and changeless. For example, the world and time, past or future, nothing exists for us in sleep. But we exist. Let us try to find out that which is changeless and which always exists.
And when it is done, we ought to follow the example by disarming ourselves.
George William Norris
The Indian economy grew at 5.5 percent, but if you look at the last 30 years – for example, 1960 to 1985 – the progress made by East Asian countries was phenomenal. In a single generation they had been able to transform the character of their economy. They were able to get rid of chronic poverty.
You know how someone – something – surprises you. You wake up a little bit. That’s done through Chinese cuisine – for example, through dishes of artifice. That’s a whole sub-tradition in Chinese cuisine. To create a dish that comes to the table looking like one thing but actually is something else.
Lead by example. Be better than those you despise.
There are no movie references that I can think of in ‘Robopocalypse.’ However, there are tons of personal references. For example, the IP address that Lurker tracks actually goes back to the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I studiedrobotics.
You know, rural Americans are a special people. Their labor puts food on our table and fuel in our gastanks. Their service in our military sets a powerful example of leadership, honor and sacrifice. Their spirit of community inspires us all.
I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity.
If a work alienates a reader, should that be counted against it? I respect people that love ‘Ulysses,’ for example, but I’m on the other side of the argument. ‘Ulysses’ would be better if it seduced me. But I probably have the minoritypoint of view.
The Greekdebt issue, for example, is such a threat because if that country ever defaulted, it might cause some bank that’s ‘too big to fail’ to actually fail.
Jerry A. Webman
I love being around kids. When I see a kid that wants to talk to me or wants my autograph, I see myself in them. I just want to be a good example and be very approachable and want them to know that I’m just a regular guy, too.
It’s a career that’s enticing because you go on stage, for example, and people clap. You get that affirmation, but you can’t go into acting for that because it’s really your own self-belief that’s going to get you through.
I lose tons of stuff on the cutting room floor. For Scary Movie 3, for example, we had a lot of Matrix spoofs, a Hulk scene, and some of that stuff just doesn’t hold up – it’s too much plot, audiences just didn’t want to hear about it.
Let’s be under no illusions: There are attacks on, for example, transgender Americans from the Oval Office, picking on troops – people willing to lay down their lives for this country – not to mention teenagers in our high schools. So we’ve got to end the war on trans Americans.
Liberal that I am, I support health-care reform on its merits alone. My liberal blood boils, for example, when I read that half of the personal bankruptcies in this country are brought on, in part, by medical expenses.
With ‘Nobody Knows,’ I consciously set out to make a fiction film, which is a different approach from ‘Distance,’ but I still applied a lot of the things I learned from making ‘Distance’: for example, how to use the camera in relation to the children and how to create the right atmosphere on set.
I think that any sort of fantasy or sci fi that is grounded in something that could ostensibly be real – ‘Jurassic Park’ being my favorite example – is that much more prescient because it means that much more. Maybe one day, what if?
There is nothing is more musical than a sunset. He who feels what he sees will find no more beautiful example of development in all that book which, alas, musicians read but too little – the book of Nature.
Information technology is a formidable enabler of freedoms. For example, it lowers barriers to freedom of expression and allows people to get a better grasp of their lives. It should not be used to reduce the freedom of people.
I think Bruno Mars is a great example of a great voice and classic songwriting with a twist that makes it contemporary. I think he’s done a great job of it. I think Katy Perry has undeniable songs for what she does, for that pop market. And, if we’re talking in the truly pop market, I would say those two.
My father was a great example of a strong and good man and Christian man, and my mother taught all my sixsisters how to be young ladies and mothers and how to take care of your family. And so I think they were – they still are – great examples for all of us to their kids and to the world, too.
The parent knows instinctively that if they’re working and setting an example for their child that means that child is more likely to be in school, more likely to stay out of trouble and more likely to complete their education.
Sometimes when we have so much going on, it’s easy to forsake the things that seem like personal luxuries – for example, our morning run. But it isn’t a luxury at all, when it is the thing that allows us and empowers us to face everything else.
We have 5000-year-old history which is now almost a part of our DNA. How do you break that? America, for example, doesn’t have that history behind it. It romanticizes rebellion. We look down upon rebellion. It’s an insult. To think out-of-the-box is looked down upon here.
I always like to do the things that I think are right. I am not trying to be a model, I am trying to be myself and do the right things. If what I am doing is a model, or is an example, is the right example, I am very happy, but I don’t pretend that.
Write your goals down in detail and read your list of goals every day. Some goals may entail a list of shorter goals. Losing a lot of weight, for example, should include mini-goals, such as 10-pound milestones. This will keep your subconscious mindfocused on what you want step by step.
Today, actors aren’t forced to ditch their regional accents like they used to. The best example’s Tom Baker, a Scouser who went to great lengths to change his accent and ended up with something alien – and fantastic. It’s sad that when the likes of him go, there won’t be those sorts of accents any more.
I don’t join the New Atheists. So, for example, I wouldn’t have the arrogance to lecture some mother who hopes to see her dying child in Heaven – that’s none of my business, ultimately. I won’t lecture her on the philosophy of science.
For example, it’s only about 20 years ago the people in that community would have got telephone lines, and it would be only about in the 1950s that electricity came to that part of the world. Television wouldn’t have come till 1970.
‘Dance to the Music’ was just Sly Stone being his natural crazy self right from the beginning. The man was an original and his first AM hit was nothing if it wasn’t the example per excellence of the Sly Stone music machine.
For example, I was privileged to be working at the White House under the Clinton administration and had not finished my Ph.D., and I thought I was the cat‘s meow.
Your kids can say some cruel things to you at times. For example, Nicole, Miles and Sofie are standing there in the room and I’m dressed to kill in my own mind. They’ll say to me, ‘Dad, you’re not going out there looking like that are you?’ If that doesn’t kill a star, I don’t know what does!
For example, one way of giving yourself a strong incentive to reach your goal is to commit to pay money to someone if you fail. Better yet, you can specify that you will have to pay a certain sum to a cause that you detest.
For example, Michael Mann’s film Collateral – there is certain kinds of stories that lend themselves to digitalphotography. Some things are very raw stories that digital photography kind of lends itself to.
In Fargo, they say, well, that’s a job. How well do you get paid? For example, for this book I was written about in Entertainment Weekly, and it was kind of cool because my mom asked me if Entertainment Weekly was a magazine or a newspaper.
The successful establishment of a buffer zone around Fort Carson will provide an example for other bases around the country as we seek to protect the training mission of the U.S. military while preservingcritical habitats on our ranges.
Jordan seeks to play only one role, that of a model state. It is our aim to set an example for our Arabbrethren, not one that they need follow but one that will inspire them to seek a higher, happier destiny within their own borders.
My mother was the greatest example to me of anyone I’ve ever known. She didn’t have an easy life. I adored her. She worked hard all her life, and she was the one who set my values. She was quite an amazing woman, although she wasn’t tough at all.
We worked very hard to make the lyrics suit the music. I can’t, like Elton John, for example, compose by lyrics. Elton has a great talent for that. Whatever you give him, including your questions, he composes in half an hour and makes a great song out of it.
As for leadership, I am the kind who leads reluctantly and more by example than anything else. Someone had to be on the incorporation papers as president.
I love playing for my country, getting the support. Especially for the kids and everybody, showing my example of what I can achieve so early. And maybe they can achieve it, too, just to get that in their minds.
I cannot save the world; that’s not what I’m trying to do. I guess I’m just trying to walk the walk and be an example to those that want it. Not everybody does, but if Mary J. Blige can come out of that same hole you were in, then you can do it, too – that’s my goal: to do that without saying it, but actually live it.
O God and Lord, now the council condemns even Your own act and Your own law as heresy, since You Yourself did lay Your cause before Your Father as the just judge, as an example for us, whenever we are sorely oppressed.
You can eliminate, for example, a Brazilnut gene if you know that it will create an allergenic effect.
James Brown is the perfect example of flashy but classy. Classy doesn’t have to mean boring. His gear was flamboyant but without being so over the top. The cape was probably the biggest part of his persona. He looked like Superman.
I’ve always drawn, for example, and I did consider when I was younger, it was either do I become an actor or do I become an animatorcartoonist at that point. Do I work at Disneyworld or something and do animated cells or something?
The example afforded before the Great War by Germany – which, if only it had exercised forbearance for another five or ten years, would by now be unrivaled in Europe – suggests that the task facing us now is to build up our strength calmly and with circumspection.
I think it’s easiest to teach by example. My dad didn’t tell us to work hard; we just saw how hard he worked. I know I have shortcomings – like a short fuse – but I’ve learned you can’t come home from a long day of work and snap at the kids.
When I graduated from high school, the teacher said I was throwing my life away following music, and the same teacher invited me back to speak at the school. I don’t say that to brag, I just want to be an example.
When I look at how the banking world has changed and at the role Chinese banks, for example, play today, Germany, as an export-oriented economy, should be pleased to have a major global player in its camp.
Leadership and punching above your weight doesn’t necessarily always have to mean gunboat diplomacy and bombing other countries into the stone age. It can actually mean leading by example, and helping other countries.
I hate the idea of natural. For example, I prefer gardens to wild nature. I like to see the human touch. High heels are a complete invention – an extravagance. They’re far from natural, but it’s the impracticality that I adore. I prefer the useless to the useful, the sophisticated to the natural.
It doesn’t work that way, you know, because most parts that you think you’d do well, most other people don’t. So they offer you something – The Avengers is a good example… I fitted into that because I came from that sort of background. It’s not even acting.
Social Security, for example – I’m 43. I’ve paid into the system. You know what? That money has been stolen from me. I know that my parents who are on Social Security – they’ve got to continue to receive it. They’re dependent on it. It is their primary source of income.
With a lot of biggercorners, you can get an advantage on them by exploiting their agility. For example, you can run a lot of doublemoves where you get way down in your breaks. You can try to make the game more about the stop-and-start.
I think if you’ve got a good idea it will stand out in one of the different mediums. For example, something might happen to me today and it could be something to talk about tomorrow on the radio, or I can write about it, or perhaps it will be best suited to telly.
If things are not going well on the field, then it’s up to me to lead by example.
And at the time, it is funny how you can look at something and say, for example with my shoulderinjury, when it first happened I said this is the worst thing that could happen to me. Why me, why now? Now I look back and say it was probably the best thing that happened to me.
My biggest problem was to get the coaches to understand that I was a runner, and I wanted to prepare myself based upon the calisthenics I did and get myself ready. For example, I used my forearm when I ran the ball, so I didn’t want to do pushups because I wanted my forearms to heal.
Governing isn’t as easy as you think. Many of you have taken pledges that are contradictory – to balance the budget and cut taxes, for example. You must be honest about the numbers, since our annualdeficit now exceeds all discretionary spending combined.
My mom was a teacher. In the 1960s and ’70s, she taught history at two largely African American public high schools in Washington, D.C. – McKinley Tech and H.D. Woodson. Her example taught me the importance of equality for all Americans.
God, for example, appealed to me as a beardless man wearing a quilted silkcap; holiness was something burning, forbidding, something connected with fire while a day had the form of an oblong box.
We Americans are world leaders and we must lead by example – particularly in times that require careful deliberation before any precipitous action – lest we fail to walk in the shoes of those we might injure.
The first thought that I had about really trying to get sober was, ‘Man, I could do a lot of good in the world. I can lead by example and just be this heroicrecovery guy.’ And that’s just a bad reason to get sober. You can’t get sober for anybody‘s benefit, let alone the world at large. You really got to do it for yourself.
I believe in an India of pluralism and diversity, not of religious bigotry and caste politics. I believe in an India that is secure in itself and confident of its place in the world, an India that is a proud example of tolerance, freedom and hope for the downtrodden.
Dad needs to show an incredible amount of respect and humor and friendship toward his mate so the kids understand their parents are sexy, they’re fun, they do things together, they’re best friends. Kids learn by example. If I respect Mom, they’re going to respect Mom.
When the happy era shall arrive for the emancipation of nations, hastened on as it will be by the example of America, shall they not resort to the Declaration of our Independence as the charter of their rights, and will not its author be hailed as the benefactor of the redeemed?
The West has become the world model; developing countries are dreaming of living like us, which is impossible. They should reject our model, because it is not sustainable. Developing countries should even give us the example, but unfortunately that’s not what happens.
When I was 13, I did become a Christian. And so it was when I was 13, that I thought… I just… I really saw a good example in Jesus and how he was just so… such a tremendous radical love and service of the poor. I just thought, ‘Man, why can’t we all do the same?’
A jellyfish is little more than a pulsating bell, a tassel of trailing tentacles and a single digestiveopening through which it both eats and excretes – as regrettable an example of economy of design as ever was.
For example I don’t work with William Hurt the same way that I will work with Viggo. They’re different guys and they work in different ways. So a good sensitive director has his general style and technique and personality that he uses but you don’t impose that on the actors.
I’m very sensitive about being held up as some sort of example. I don’t consider myself any sort of role model at all. I have great advantages over many other working women, and my schedule allows me more time with my kids than many working women have.
If we think something is not good, we’ll openly say it. If there’s choreography, for example, and it feels like it’s going to be too taxing on our physical resources – as I said, we’re not getting any younger – we’ll say so, and then we’ll make those changes.
TV and film taught me to think cinematically. Teaching others to edit, for example, provides a great deal of insight into the millions of ways in which given elements can be put together to tell a story.
Although I have to say, it’s become a lot harder for me since I won the world series because everyone wants to beat me. For example, bluffing is really tough now, because there’s always someone who calls me on the off-chance that they’ll then be able to say they read a world champion‘s bluff.
Stories about the ongoingdramas in our lives as we age are not being told because women find it difficult to be honest about what’s going on – about, for example, our heightened sexuality as we age or about living in a society that only values youth.
Even the mundane task of washing dishes by hand is an example of the small tasks and personal activities that once filled people’s daily lives with a sense of achievement.
All my life, I have taken inventory at intervals. For example, when I became a movie actor and suddenly I had to deal with fame, money and playing so many roles, I lost myself. I said, ‘Who am I?’ And I wrote my first book to deal with that, ‘The Ragman’s Son.’
All the major problems of the world today are global in essence, and they cannot be solvedunless through some kind of global cooperation. It’s not just climate change, which is, like, the most obvious example people give. I think more in terms of technologicaldisruption.
I’m the classic example of alienation: I grew up in a middle-class household without art or books. I was going to be a chemical engineer until I went to the theatre for the first time at 16 and was blown away by it.
On the contrary, if they are treated with justice and humanity, proper example and the advantages of education given them, the coming years will be as bright and prosperous to the unfortunate race as the past has been dark and painful.
So much of what young peopleperceive about their body image is taken from watching their parents… I think we need to look at ways we can help parents pass on more positive messages to their children, and perhaps some of that can be done through health visitors, for example.
Yes, I’m having a baby. I think it’s so hard as a woman to give yourself a break. It’s great to be healthy but you have to set a good example for your kids and know that it’s not about a number on a scale but how you feel.
No one warns young people to follow Adam‘s example. He waited till God saw his need. Then God made Adam sleep, prepared for his mate, and brought her to him. We need more of this ‘being asleep’ in the will of God.
France, for example, loves at the same time history and the drama, because the one explores the vast destinies of humanity, and the other the individual lot of man.
Alfred de Vigny
Most people tell you there are certain moments you should celebrate in life: for example, the weekend coming, so you should party on a Friday. Or your birthday or New Year‘s Eve. But what if you’re excited about being alive every day? Can’t you be in that celebratory state every moment you’re not dead?
Some of the most brilliant things that someone might do could happen in three minutes because it’s something that just occurs to them. And then, there’s the example of really chipping away at something to create something great. I don’t believe that one is more reliable than the other.
If you’re glued together right and honorable, you will succeed. Get in there and get rid of stupidities and avoid bad people. Try teaching that to your grandchildren. The best way is by example. Fix yourself.
English of course is your major tool, but it is not nearly so important as other aspects of writing for example you have to have some natural ability you can’t buy it no one puts it there you’re born with it.
Personally, I think that for example the chemical directive in its present form does too much damage to the chemical industry – especially the medium sized businesses – and will hurt our worldwide competitiveness.
There is a movement in club football, which I don’t necessarily consider a prime example of solidarity, because it leads us to conclude the rich are getting richer and they are using everything in the market to create an exodus from Africa.
I think the players, I put in the book for example that we should go back to wood rackets, probably they laughed at me, I’m a dinosaur, but I think that you see these great players, have even more variety and you see more strategy, there’d be more subtlety.
Talk about national interests: When we went in with Operation Iraqi Freedom, some of our allies, Turkey, for example, would not let us through. How much trouble did that cause us, because we were not able to go into Iraq through Turkey?
I have always been an animal lover. I had a hard time disassociating the animals I cuddled with – dogs and cats, for example – from the animals on my plate, and I never really cared for the taste of meat. I always loved my Brussels sprouts.
Of what use is the memory of facts, if not to serve as an example of good or of evil?
Alfred de Vigny
Pre-poll surveys receive different reaction in the media among voters and political parties. For example, the more undecided voters are, the greater the role and effect of pre-poll surveys. Similarly, greater the decline of the party system, the more influential their role.
N. Bhaskara Rao
To be a movie star, you have to carry a movie. And to carry a movie where you play the title role is the supreme example.
The actor that taught me the most was Bernie Mac. I did my first big budget studio film with he and Angela Bassett, ‘Mr. 3000’ for Disney. Bernie taught me by example what creates success ishumility and hard work.
The blockchain concept was pioneered within the context of crypto-currency Bitcoin, but engineers have imagined many other ways for distributed ledger technology to streamline the world. Stockexchanges and big banks, for example, are looking at blockchain-type systems as trading settlementplatforms.
I like going to Burning Man, for example. An environment where people can try new things. I think as technologists we should have some safe places where we can try out new things and figure out the effect on society. What’s the effect on people, without having to deploy it to the whole world.
For example, a man who might not have enormous charisma, who could be president 40 years ago, and who was a deserving president, I don’t know that George Washington would be a president today, I don’t know that Abe Lincoln would, I don’t know that Roosevelt would.
It’s very interesting to see how the music is used, as sometimes you have composed something with a very different intention, and then suddenly you see it connected to something different. For example, it was incredibly strong and beautiful the first time I saw ‘This Is England‘ by Shane Meadows.
Of course, no one wants to ban the vote. Voting should remain available for sporting and recreational purposes. But certain types of votes clearly should be curtailed – ‘assault votes,’ for example, in which the only purpose of the vote is to harm others.
For example, I was discussing the use of email and how impersonal it can be, how people will now email someone across the room rather than go and talk to them. But I don’t think this is laziness, I think it is a conscious decision people are making to save time.
First there’s my role just as an executive being responsible for advertising, regardless of gender. I think that’s a position that I take seriously. That’s the first role. But I think for my role as a woman at Google, you try to set a good example and be a role model for the other women in the organization.
You’ve got to set yourself up to be as healthy as you can. The thing we tend to do is when it gets to be a bit too hard, we actually opt out for the absolute worst option. For example, if you’re in a rush in a morning and you feel like you don’t have time to make breakfast, you skip it.
I wanted to play around with the format, really tear it to pieces and shake it up. For example, if Mitch saves someone from drowning, and that person then goes out and releases a virus that kills a million people. Imagine the moral implications of that.
It seems to be that when these communistregimes take over – if you look at the example of Vietnam or Cambodia or Nicaragua – that even in conditions of peace they don’t seem to be able to figure out how to support their people, and the human suffering is enormous.
I don’t care about style, but I am a total clean freak, so a messy home is a deal breaker. I had one girlfriend who never wanted to go back to her place. When we finally did, it turned out that she was sleeping on her couch because her bedroom was so messy. That is a prime example of someone I don’t want to be around.
For in 1900 all electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths was already known at least to the extent that one could not seek in it the more striking characteristics of X-rays such as, for example, the strong penetrating power.
Max von Laue
We call ourselves public servants but I’ll tell you this: we as public servants must set an example for the rest of the nation. It is hypocritical for the public official to admonish and exhort the people to uphold the common good.
It is essential that we put an end to steroid abuse and set a better example for aspiring young athletes to follow, so that some day, when they make it in the All Star Game, it will be because of their own natural talents, and not because of a performanceenhancing product.
Now I’m no biologist, but it seems to make a lot of sense that slow lives, as well as being enjoyable, are long lives. One only has to think of the example of the tortoise for proof of this theory from the animal world.
It takes a long time for a country to build a strong base in science, but only a short time to destroy it. Germany was a sad example. It was a world leader in the sciences for more than a century, until its science base was demolished during the Nazi era, and the country ceded its position to the United States.
In our own time it has been seen… that simple children, roughly brought up in the wilderness, have begun to draw by themselves, impelled by their own natural genius, instructed solely by the example of these beautiful paintings and sculptures of Nature.
Do I believe, for example, that by using magic I could fly? No. How would you get around gravity? Impossible. Do I believe that I might be able to project my consciousness into a very, very vivid simulation of flying? Yeah. Yes, I’ve done that. Yes, that works.
Machines can do things cheaper and better. We’re very used to that in banking, for example. ATM machines are better than tellers if you want a simple transaction. They’re faster, they’re less trouble, they’re more reliable, so they put tellers out of work.
I think the music comes first, then comes the fashion, and thus, the lifestyle. I believe it starts with music, and then the person delivering it delivers the lifestyle, the fashion. Madonna is a great example of that.
There is always some universal proportion, but along with that there are some places where special things happen. Ireland, for example. I’ve always felt it’s interesting to play there. Maybe they just drink more than anybody else.
Ironing boards are a classic example of something I find horrible about modern society: the excitementation, for want of a better word, of mundane things. Funny ironing board covers – I hate them.
When conducted with proper preparation, and in a focused and professional manner, oversight of executive branch actions can reveal serious shortcomings by government officials and help prevent recurrence; the ‘Waco hearings,’ conducted over a two-week period in 1995, stand as an example of such an undertaking.
We are at a major epoch in human history, which is that we don’t need sex to recreate the race. You can have babies without sex. This is the first time in human history that has been true, and it means, for example, we could do some extraordinary things.
Paul had the biggest heart in the world and he was such a good example.
I can’t think of a single example of two mature democracies going to war with each other in the 20th century. It’s where there was an absence of democracy and a breakdown of democracy that we finish up with these wars.
People are always saying, what use are the retarded, on welfare, using up all our funds, and yet, where else is there every day a greater example of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity than these people?
Eunice Kennedy Shriver
If we talk about the environment, for example, we have to talk about environmental racism – about the fact that kids in South Central Los Angeles have a third of the lung capacity of kids in Santa Monica.
For something to collapse, not all systems have to shut down. In most cases, just one system is enough. For example, the human body is a system of systems. If just one system, such as the cardiovascular system, shuts down, death follows.
Whoever removes the Cross and its interpretation by the New Testament from the center, in order to replace it, for example, with the social commitment of Jesus to the oppressed as a new center, no longer stands in continuity with the apostolic faith.
Rules about public sanitation are a simple and familiar example. Without them, a city can’t be a healthy place to live; but these rules don’t just happen. The rules for a city are different from the ones for a village, but as a village slowly gets bigger, a city may be stuck with the rules of the village.
My training in music and composition then led me to a kind of musical language process in which, for example, the sound of the words I play with has to expose their true meaning against their will so to speak.
You know, we – if, for example, Jerry Brown can withstand, you know, what will probably end up being $200 million of spending by his opponent and get electedgovernor of California, that will be a big victory in the nation’s largest state.
Art led the way for me to recover. He got out of prison before me and started traveling all over the world before I did. He showed me by example that it could be done, and I’ll always love him for that.
I could sit there and eat pastaall day long and not worry about it when I was younger, and now I really have to focus on making sure I set a good example for my kids.
For example, some stars put out large amounts of energy in the infrared part of the spectrum, so that this can produce a different relativemagnitude rating than using light energy from the middle of the spectrum.
When I decided to become vegetarian, I had to learn how to ‘recook,’ if you will. For example, I used to put red wine in a big pot with the meat that I’d cooked in fat, and it was, of course, delicious. When I gave up meat, I wondered what I would make. That turned out to be vegetables, really organic and fresh.
I think parenthood is a wonderful balancing act. On the one hand, you want to spend as much time with your children as possible. On the other hand, you want to set an example for them to see that you’re fulfilled in your life and in your work.
This I regard as a classic example of my not being properly prepared for a part I very much wanted.
There are domains in which expertise is not possible. Stock picking is a good example. And in long-term political strategicforecasting, it’s been shown that experts are just not better than a dice-throwing monkey.
When I think of how we show faith, I cannot help but think of the example of my own father. I recallvividly how the spirit of missionary work came into my life. I was about thirteen years of age when my father received a call to go on a mission.
Greece has been, in many ways, a partially dysfunctional society. For example, the wealthybarely pay taxes… to an extent, that’s true elsewhere, including the United States, but it’s been pretty extreme in Greece.
‘Unforgiven’ is probably an example of a script that I likedright away but thought, ‘This is great, but I’d like to do this when I’m older.’ So I stuck it in the drawer for ten years and then took it out.
I was brought up to believe I could achieve anything. My mother instilled in me the belief that there was always something great coming. For example, even though I’m afraid of flying, I always think the plane can’t crash because there are so many better things still to come.
In my daily work, I work on very large, complex, distributed systems built out of many Python modules and packages. The focus is very similar to what you find, for example, in Java and, in general, in systems programming languages.
Guido van Rossum
I think the internationalappeal of SF is quite understandable since the kinds of people who like to read it, are, by the nature of the beast, interested in other cultures, of which other nations on Earth are the closest available example.
I’ve always been a proponent of the idea that technology doesn’t matter to game design. The example I always like to point out is ‘Tetris,’ one of the greatest games ever made.
I think the greatest way to learn is to learn by someone’s example.
Suggestibility is a very loose term. You may not be the sort of person who responds well to a hypnotist on stage, but you might find, for example, that a doctor administering a placebo to you is something you respond well to.
Is it appropriate still for a German to have a gun? I only use that as an example of a country that’s still deeply involved and engaged in the conversations about how to come to terms with the past. Certainly for that country, it’s not forgotten.
I am much more open to plural marriage than I was before, and I now support it in certain situations. I do believe it is right for some people. But our example in America today is gross abuse – I can’t support it in fundamentalist compounds.
The political, social, and spiritual impact of the life example set by Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela might be measured in part by the profound and unique gestures made by people in different countries to honor his life upon learning of his death.
All views can’t be true because all views are opposite; this is the logical aspect. For example, Islam says we are good in nature; Christianity says we are born in sin. Islam says God is a man; Christianity says He is more than a man, He is God. All truths can’t be the same.
On the road to equality there is no better place for blacks to detour around American values than in forgoing its example in the treatment of its women and the organization of its family.
Eleanor Holmes Norton
Young children need to develop good habits that will be useful to them the rest of their lives. It is important to keep the lessons age-appropriate. For example, when your children start earning allowances, that would be a good time to teach them how to put some money in the bank instead of spending it all.
I think that marriage is an amazing institution and should be preserved, and you can have great marriages, and you must because sharing your life with someone is like the greatest thing. And I loved being able to set a good example for that on television.
Plot is just not my gift. I’m fascinated with complex characters, and that doesn’t mix well with complex plots. And by the way, when the plot is simple, you can move one piece around and make it feel fresh. Hell or High Water’s a good example: I don’t tell you why the brothers are robbing the bank.
It is part of my responsibility as a bridge builder to speak the truth about what’s great about America, what we’ve done right, and what our less glorious moments. And many people feel that the Iraq adventure, for example, has been one of our less glorious moments.
Being Mormon is a big part of who I am, and I try very hard to live the right way, but I don’t know that I’m an example. I hate to say, ‘Yes, look at me. I’m a good example of being Mormon.’ I want to be the best person I can be, so in that aspect, maybe I’m a good example.
I would like to say a few things about that photo in ‘Tatler’. I have no regrets. The article was about the 20 cleverest people in England, covered up only by the thing that makes them clever. A saxophonist, for example, had only his saxophone, and an artist, his easel. So I was covered by books.
Yes, yes, no one denies, for example, that you’re going to be able to fix the Murray through the Living Murray process without money, no one denies that.
My mom and grandma, growing up, one thing they emphasized was that you need to make sure that anything you put on your skin is also digestible by the body. For example, if something isn’t safe for me to eat or consume, it’s probably not good for your face. So I do a lot of natural remedies.
I always did the cooking at home, and we always tried for balance. We’ve been vigilant about how and what our kids eat. For example, my son would just as soon go for the grapes as he would the chips… and the chips are baked.
Our society has changed in unforeseeable ways since Social Security was created. For example, we are living longer, healthier, and more productive lives and while this is all great news, this has also placedadded pressure on America’s retirement system.
A sovereign‘s great example forms a people; the public breast is noble or vile as he inspires it.
Before the 1970s, banks were banks. They did what banks were supposed to do in a state capitalist economy: they took unused funds from your bank account, for example, and transferred them to some potentially useful purpose like helping a family buy a home or send a kid to college.
Death doesn’t frighten me, it bothers me. It bothers me for example that someone can be there tomorrow but me I am no longer there. What bothers me is no longer being alive, not being dead.
To my mind, the best SF addresses itself to problems of the here and now, or even to problems which have never been solved and never will be solved – I’m thinking of Philip K. Dick’s work here, dealing with questions of reality, for example.
There’s something really powerful when I, for example, hear Bob Marley’s ‘Exodus’ – we know where we’re going. We know where we’re from.
I’m fond of science fiction. But not all science fiction. I like science fiction where there’s a scientific lesson, for example – when the science fiction book changes one thing but leaves the rest of science intact and explores the consequences of that. That’s actually very valuable.
For example, the Prime Minister earlier this year talked about the importance of the Arctic to our future. He’s right. A hundred years from now, the strength of Canada is going to be coming from our resources in the Arctic.
To add an AC outlet, for example, you just drill a circular hole in the wall, tap into the wiring, add the outlet and you’re set. If you don’t want it, pull it out and plasterover it with more earth to seal the hole.
It is curious to reflect, for example, upon the remarkable legend of the Philosopher’s Stone, one of the oldest and most universal beliefs, the origin of which, however far back we penetrate into the records of the past, we do not probably trace its real source.
For example, I loved English and history at school. I would have loved to have done a degree in either. But my Mom said I didn’t have time for university.
One of the reasons you take a role is because it’s something you always wanted to do, from going to the movies as a kid. I always wanted to do a 1950s movie, for example. And I got a chance to be in ‘Peggy Sue Got Married.’ I would have taken only one line of dialogue to be in that.
Bitcoin is just one example of something that uses a blockchain.
I’m living by example by continuing on with my career and having a full, rich life, and I am incidentally gay.
Crossrail is a prime example of infrastructure. It is a rather deadly word, but I think it is exciting stuff, the civil engineering which makes Britain tick – the bridges, tunnels, power and water networks, which bind us together.
I think the crux of the matter was that if we were going to become partners in, for example, the International Space Station, we had to gain the respect of a country like the United States and particularly its space organization, NASA.
Songs like the Buck Owens tune, for example, are very simple and straightforward, and recording it really gave me a chance to get into and get a sense of Buck’s personality, a feel for that whole Bakersfield sound.
The devil is a peace stealer, and he works hard to set us up to get upset. But we can learn how to change our approach so we don’t live upset all of the time. And Jesus gives us the best example to follow.
The King of Spain displayed his esteem for me in a manner that I confessflattered me pleasantly when, after the death of Don Luis de Haro, he statedpublicly in front of all the foreign ambassadors that he wanted to follow my example in not having a prime minister any longer.
There are thousands of ways to take action. For example, plant trees, pick up litter, join an organisation or movement that makes a difference and especially try to influence adults and put pressure on people in power.
If I make a change to a young kid to play any sport, not only tennis, instead of spending time in front of the TV or computer, that is good. I want to give them a good example: ‘Hey, go out and play and see the world.’
