Yes, I would agree that America, just like Spain was in the 17th Century, is the main empire of the world and they are the ones who, on the surface, are the most pushy: pushing their language, pushing their culture – or what there is of it – pushing by force their system on others.
The main thing was finding this… voice that I had interest in, which I’ll call the quiet-yet-stoic voice: the very quiet yet very strong voice that I developed, that people would want to hear and that was worthpayingattention to.
The main differencesbetween contemporary English and American literature is that the baleful pseudo-professionalism imparted by all those crap M.F.A. writing programs has yet to settle like a miasma of standardization on the English literary scene. But it’s beginning to happen.
My main concern is when it’s 2-0, I’ve got to keep it at 2-0. It gives us a little more of a chance. To give up four more runs, that isn’t going to get it done. I don’t care who you’re facing or who you’re playing, it’s not going to get it done.
The photo shoot I always feel a bit embarrassed about because I don’t really know what to do with myself, but they usually don’t use a bad photo, so you can’t worrytoo much. So my main concern is that I just look a bit more like myself.
The main thing in making your own music is that it’s an expression of someone‘s personality and being. That’s what people want to hear, and you can’t really teach that – that’s just something that comes out. Teaching just hones that.
The issue I had with the Lightspeed albums was that usually the main purpose with them was to fulfil really dorky musical goals, like, ‘I wonder if I can do that,’ and it was all very personal. It was more that once I’d finished the goal of what the song was, I was kind of done. It was like ticking boxes.
If you’re writing a book that takes place in New York in the moment, you can’t not write about 9-11; you can’t not integrate it. My main character’s view is the Statue of Liberty and the Trade Center. It doesn’t have to take over, but it has to be acknowledged.
Grover Washington was my main influence, and when I went to college, I started listening to more of the jazz masters like Sonny Rollins, Cannonball Adderley, and John Coltrane.
The main issue was deciding what to play: Should it be old Ramonesmaterial or new material? I had about three albums worth of new material, but I knew that people would rather hear the Ramones songs.
Dee Dee Ramone
My main place is in Switzerland, but I live on a plane, really.
When you’re young, you want to make every kind of film: musicals, Westerns, horror. Slowly you begin to hear your own voice. I hope people receive what I do as small, personal films that are somewhat contrarian about their main characters.
In Egypt, on the eve of Tahrir Square, there was a majorpoll which found that overwhelmingly – 80-90%, numbers like that – Egyptians regarded the main threats they face as the U.S. and Israel. They don’t like Iran – Arabs generally don’t like Iran – but they didn’t consider it a threat.
There will always be disputes between nations which, at times, will inflame the public and threatenconflicts, but the main thing is to educate the people of the world to be ever mindful that there are better means of settling such disputes than by war.
Whenever people say they didn’t like the main character of a book, they mean they didn’t like the book. The main character has to be a friend? I don’t get that.

It’s a learning process, and now I know that even when you don’t have a title, or you’re not in a main event caliber program, you have to remain ‘main event level’ and always not allow anything to hinder that.
Sure, I’ll have characters drop in and out of books but the main cast of characters always changes. Maybe I’m wrong but I think if had the same joedetective guy or gal, I wouldn’t write them as well; I wouldn’t do as good a job.
My main question that I ask of my characters is, ‘What does it feel like to be you? And how do you get through the day? Where do you find the hope and faith to endure getting through the days, and what are your days like?’
Basketball was not my main sport in grade school, or even the first year of high school.
My main camera is a Nikon D3. I use a French camera from the 1800s for wetplate photography, I use a Hasselblad sometimes. But to me the camera really doesn’t matter that much. I don’t have a preference for film or digital.
On the Internet, news is consumed a la carte. If someone shows up on the main page of a website and doesn’t see anything of interest, they leave. This negatively impacts ad revenues. The solution on the Internet is to pack news websitesfull of things that will draw people in, regardless of whether they are news or not.
I never know how to give advice to a writer because there’s so much you could say, and it’s hard to translate your own experience. But of course, I always try. The main thing that I usually end up saying is to read a lot. To read a great deal and to learn from that.
Governments regard their own citizens as their main enemy, and they have to be – protect themselves. That’s why you have state secret laws. Citizens are not supposed to know what their government is doing to them.
My main worry is that after a certain point you become so identified with a character and a series that you might not be able to get work when your show goes off the air.
In ‘Law & Order,’ your main job is to stay out of the way of the plot. On another show you’d receive your script and see stuff that seemschallenging and feel excited that the writers thought highly enough of you to write it for you.
The nature of our two main political parties has changed in the United States.
Officials at the White House are saying that President Bush hasn’t changed his schedule much since the war started. The main difference, they say, is that he’s started watching the news and taping Sponge Bob.
I’m the champ that puns the camp! That’s what I always wanted. I wanted to be seen as a main eventer, and it’s a lot of responsibility now. I feel like I’m gonna deliver on this opportunity. I want to take it and make sure everybody knows that this is why I’m the champ.
I found university a little dispiriting. I thought I would enter the great halls of Plato, but instead I entered the halls of an intellectualsausagefactory. I wanted to do something not on the main course, and chose the environment.
Four years ago, I felt the importance of the Olympics and how it is different from other events. It’s a completely different atmosphere. The main advice I can give my teammates is to try to enjoy the experience.
I am the champion of champions. I’m the main event. I’m untouchable. I, Tommaso Ciampa, am the greatest sports-entertainer of all time.
I basically drew my own family. My father’s name is Homer. My mother’s name is Margaret. I have a sister Lisa and another sister Maggie, so I drew all of them. I was going to name the main character Matt, but I didn’t think it would go over well in a pitch meeting, so I changed the name to Bart.
There are all sorts of reasons why I don’t do much work in the theatre, the main one being that after two performances I feel I’ve given all I can. I hate repetition, I really do. It’s like asking a painter to paint he same picture every day of his life.
I’m not very good at relaxing. Reading’s the main thing. On the bus, on the tube, on the loo. Literally all the time. I mean, I don’t think there’s a moment of the day when I wouldn’t be if I was left alone.
Let’s make math fun and sexy and glamorous. Smart is sexy, that’s one of my main messages.
It’s strange because even in the vaudeville days, ventriloquists were never the main attraction. They were the guysbrought out to stand in front of the curtainwhile sets were being changed. Ventriloquism wasn’t even celebrated as an art until Edgar Bergen came along in the 1930s.
But as far as dream roles – I know this is so expected of me, but I would to play Elphaba in ‘Wicked‘ on Broadway. I have a lot of dream roles, but that’s like my main one because of the vocal track. I love belting high things!
It’s certain rappers that can really rap, that really spit all bars, so I understand why someone would say, ‘You not a real rapper.’ But the main thing is, if you can make good songs, who cares? So I don’t know why guys be tripping on Drake. He makes great music. He’s dope.
I realized a very long time ago, that I was never going to be the guy who, ‘Oh, you look so big, let’s push him in the main event and see,’ or, ‘Oh, this guy’s got the best physique ever, let’s put him in the main event and see.’ It was always going to be the hard way.
While we remain a nation decisively shaped by religious faith, our politics and our culture are, in the main, less influenced by movements and arguments of an explicitly Christian character than they were even five years ago. I think this is a good thing – good for our political culture.
And at NYU, I went to the Atlantic Theater Company, and they have two main points. One of them is to always be active in something instead of just feeling it. And the other is figuring out your character.
My main point here is that if you are the child of God and God is a part of you, the in your imagination God suppose to look like you. And when you accept a picture of the deityassigned to you by another people, you become the spiritual prisoners of that other people.
The main problem with writing in verse is, if your fourth line doesn’t come out right, you’ve got to throw four lines away and figure out a wholenew way to attack the problem. So the mortality rate is terrific.
Working on ‘Nightmare Before Christmas,’ I had endless arguments, like the studio saying, ‘You can’t have a main character that’s got no eyeballs!’ ‘How is anybody going to feel for somebody with just eyesockets?’ You know? So, it’s those kind of things that really wear you down.
The Britishballads became a new kind of form in their hand. And out of them came the blues, a new kind of song of commentary and satire, a song form which, after all, has become the main musical form of the whole human species.
So when you’re following guys like Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish or The Young Bucks or JayLethal or The Briscoe Brothers, and you’re going out and trying to really stick out and have a very memorable, talked-about main event, or the match of the night, like the main event should be, it’s really challenging.
My Mum was the main reason why I became a chef. She influenced all of my family to feel free in the kitchen – it was the centre of our home and I have wonderful memories of helping Mum cook and experiencing the love and patience that went into the food.
Resolution 1441 does not give anyone the right to an automatic use of force. Russia believes that the Iraqi problem should be regulated by the Security Council, which carries the main responsibility for ensuring international security.
Opera in English is, in the main, just about as sensible as baseball in Italian.
Resentments and grudges are two of the main culprits that perpetuatecycles of self-abuse and victimhood. Stowed away inside you like parasites, they deplete you of your God-given life force and separate you from your inherent worth, your joy, and the love in your heart.
The main thing that I learned from editing is that most people, when they’re making a film, they start too early into the story. They will try to set up the characters, they will try to establish things before the plot actually starts.
The main thing is to make history, not to write it.
Otto von Bismarck
My main concern is if this composer has been made aware of the fact that I’ve come clean in all of my cases. I killed in pure hate, robbing along the way. So if this person hasn’t, then I’d sure appreciate it if someone would inform him or her of it.
My main concern is getting out an album that I feel really proud of.
But my main thing that I would love to see as a fan of ‘Glee,’ like I said, is to really get into the character and who they are and what they do outside of school. I think that that’s interesting. And then of course the themed stuff and the album episodes are all really cool too.
The main stem was then in most cases twisted in a zigzag form, which process checked the flow of the sap, and at the same time encouraged the production of side branches at those parts of the stem where they were most desired.
I don’t plan or schedule my career thinking first I will play a common man, then a police officer, then a superhero. I love good scripts, and I don’t care if I play the main part in it or not. I want to be a part of good films. That’s my dream… ‘Jacobinte Swargarajyam’ was that film for me.
These days, my main guitar amps have been Magnatone. They’re beautiful. Magnatones have actual tremolo, which I recently learned about guitar amps. Often what guitar amps call vibrato is really just a volume Up and Down. But Magnatone has a true vibrato, which is pitch bending. And so, it’s just a lush sound.
True health infuses positive energy in the mind, body and spirit; it is a main focus in my life.
I don’t try to be someone I’m not – I’ve always followed my heart and trance has always been my main sound.

I grew up trying to be like my idols, and one of the main people in my life was my father. He played football, and when your father is telling stories about the game he played… Everybody wants to be like their father.
At the beginning, everything’s possible and everybody gets equal time, all the characters, all the ideas. You don’t know who’s going to be the main characters; they’re all fighting it out. It’s like kind of the best time in a way.
There’s less critical thinking going on in this country on a Main Street level – forget about the media – than ever before. We’ve never needed people to think more critically than now, and they’ve taken a big nap.
My main goal in life is to be happy. If I can make other people happy by doing what I love, then I feel like I’ve done everything in life that I’ve wanted. I just want to make people feel good and change people’s lives with music, and that’s it.
I started to learn Greek when I was in high school, the last year of high school, by accident, because my teacher knew Greek and she offered to teach me on the lunchhour, so we did it in an informal way, and then I did it at university, and that was the main thing of my life.
Physical comedy and musical theatre were never actually in my main focus at school. I was more of a dramatic actor. I always thought I was better at that.
Well, I think the main message is there is more to your story. There is more than what happens between the crib and the grave, and that is what I am really trying to speak to, this idea that all of life is this life and that there is nothing more than what we see and experience right here on this earth.
I acted in junior high in the junior high school group, and then when I got into senior high I was, you know, the main actor of the senior high school.
I always just sit down at the piano and make the main hook – what I want the track to be about melodically – and then I’ll build everything else around that. But growing up, I did not play any instruments.
My other Main Man is Muhamed Ali, for the obvious reasons.
The main idea with Brave is that you don’t have to think about Bitcoin; you just have this frictionless payment system.
The point really is that a writer tends to write a book that he or she tends to write. It’s as simple as that. Of course, it’s important to make a living and all that, but the main impulse as far as I’m concerned – and I’m sure as other writers are concerned – is to tell a story that I feel impelled by.
The main points were: one, the amount of Israel’s nuclear weapons, how many Israel had, that no one could predict or know, including the CIA. They were thinking about a number like 10 or 15. But I came out with a number between 150 to 200.
It’s not about how skinny you are or how much money or how many diamonds you have – that’s the fluff that people sometimes look at as being the main thing. It’s about understanding that the things that make you fabulous are all inside of you.
Music is my main goal, but I’m not going to rush a record out. There are so many actors who have come out with albums these days. I don’t want to do it because it’s the thing to do. I want to wait until the time is right.
You have to keep going. The main attention is for us to stay alive and stay a band. You only really become very successful when you stick together. Just keep going and reaching bigger and better.
It’s true that at the time I was fond of Kurt Vonnegut and Richard Brautigan, and it was from them that I learned about this kind of simple, swift-paced style, but the main reason for the style of my first novel is that I simply did not have the time to write sustainedprose.
Even in an organization that’s doing something big and bold, there’s the mundane, day-to-dayexecution work of keeping it going. But people need to stay connected to the boldness, to the vision, and stay plugged in to the main vein of the dream.
Being a famous singer or an international singer – that’s my dream, too, but my main goal is to be a real student and be able to graduate and be a lawyer and have my own business.
The main reason I write the dailyobservations is because I want to know where I’m wrong. So lots of times if somebody points something out it helps me, and I want to have a diversified bet of uncorrelated bets.
You have to figure out what’s important and keep the main points, though I will swing a little outside the box. It affords me the freedom to find out who the character is, and it’s been a positive technique for me. I’m not saying everyone should change words, but if you can do it with confidence, you may nail it.
Every human is an artist. And this is the main art that we have: the creation of our story.
I went down to Chicago to try to go into a place called Second City. I auditioned for that and got in pretty quickly, but I couldn’t stop partying. They gave me a warning: ‘If you do it again, we’re gonna kick you off the main stage.’
One of my favorite things about ‘Star Trek‘ wasn’t just the overt banter but the humor in that show about the relationships between the main characters and their reactions to the situations they would face; there was a lot of comedy in that show without ever breaking its reality.
The main thing is the ability to control your instrument, which, in the actor, is yourself. Look the way you want the character to look. Sound the way you want the character to sound. Once you’ve trained the instrument to do what you want, you’re in control, and you’re free.
But I think Steve’s main contribution besides just the pure leadership is his passion for excellence. He’s a perfectionist. Good enough isn’t good enough. And also his creative spirit. You know he really, really wants to do something great.
The main experience, I think, is that we have managed: people moving to Norway has made Norway richer, economically, but also our culture has become more rich in many ways.
When I came to Delhi and noticed an insider view, I felt what it was, and I was surprised to see it. It seemed as if dozens of separate governments are running at the same time in one main government. It appeared that everyone has its own fiefdom.
My main hope is eventually, in modern education field, introduce education about warm-heartedness, not based on religion, but based on common experience and a common sort of sense, and then scientific finding.
It’s so much work to make a movie, and for me it has to get me off my butt. To get me actually writing you have to strike something inside, you have to hit a power main to get the energy. You have to strike something you care about.
I think the main reason my marriages failed is that I always loved too well but never wisely.
We couldn’t be making as much money, if we had to deal with strangerbehaviour. And right now, anybody who slows down our economic productivity, off they go. We have a place for them, the psychiatricinstitution. That’s the main thing, they slow things down.
My main characters are the most sunny, happy, optimistic, lovingcreatures on the face of the Earth. I couldn’t be happier that’s where I start. I can put as many flawed people in the dog‘s world as I like, but the dog doesn’t care. Dog doesn’t judge. Dog doesn’t dislike. Dog loves. That’s not so bad.
I felt a little uncomfortable because, when I went in to the military, I was the main male vocalist they had and when I came out they had like two or three vocalists. Otis came in when I was in the military, too.
I played baseball up until my freshman year of high school. That was my main sport. I played third base.
I’m often asked where my nickname ‘Kun’ comes from. My parents says it was a Japanese cartoon I used to watch on television when I was very young, set in the Stone Age, where the main character was a boy called Kum Kum, the little caveman.
The main cause is a perniciousfalsehood propagated against her being, namely that she is inferior by her nature. Inferior in what? What has man ever done that woman, under the same advantages could not do?
The main benefit of the book for the more experienced practitioners is as an evangelical tool. The book will give you some ways of expressing the value and importance of your work that you may not have had before.
The mental is more important than the physical. You know, that voice in your head telling you to give up if it gets tough. That’s my main opponent – making sure that if your body wants to stop, your mind won’t let you.
Would I be happy just practicing law? No. Would I be happy just doing TV and speeches? No. I want to do all of these things and be as active as I can… but my main goal is to have some degree of influence on the public discussion.
The uniqueness of the United States in human history is the United States is the first global power in human history which emerged far away from Africa or Asia, which is the main land of human history.
My first assistant-coaching job in football was at William & Mary in 1961. The pay wasn’t much, so to get $300 more per year, I agreed to coach the golf team. I didn’t even know how to keep score, and really, my main job was not to wreck the van on the way to tournaments.
Obviously, I try to make the films work for an audience. That’s the main point of making a film, and in retrospect, one can see that certain films, let’s say LeavingLas Vegas, demonstrated its own success.
Alan Moore does have a sheen of class. He’s a smart guy, and I’m sure there was a metaphoric level, I’m not denying that, but let’s face it. the main reason he was doing a super-hero comic was because he was working for a super-hero comic bookcompany.
My dad always told me that I should have been an actress, but that wasn’t really my main focus. I really love to be the director, the person in charge, making my fantasy come to life. But if I love someone else’s fantasy, I’ll definitely help them bring theirs to life, too.
I was going to shave it. It went in two parts. I got a bob first but it keptfalling all over my face. Then it was off, short. The main reason it was long was because my mother cut it short when I was little and I was trying to make up for that.
At the age of 16 I immigrated to Palestine from Europe, where I became a member of the Haganah, the main undergroundarmy of the Jews.
If you’ve seen ‘Spirited Away’, ‘Spirited Away’ is set in a very, very Japanese sensibility. And so, to Japanese audiences, when Sen would walk up, the main character, and look at this big building with a flag on it with Japanese writing on it, everyone in Japan would know what that is.
The three main sources of scepticism are first, that not every people desires freedom; second, that democracy in certain parts of the world would be dangerous; and third, that there is little the world’s democracies can do to advance freedom outside their countries.
I agree that it is not just the extremists who harbor bad thoughts or engage in bad acts, but they are usually the source of the polarization and try to keep education and communication of the main stream from moving forward.
The main thing that gives me hope is the media. We have radio, TV, magazines, and books, so we have the possibility of learning from societies that are remote from us, like Somalia. We turn on the TV and see what blew up in Iraq or we see conditions in Afghanistan.
My whole time on the main roster was me being a stoic bodyguard, and I was still pretty stoic during the Intercontinental Title run. A lot of the promos didn’t feel like me, and I didn’t feel like I was captivating any attention.
There are some people who might have better technique than me, and some may be fitter than me, but the main thing is tactics. With most players, tactics are missing. You can divide tactics into insight, trust, and daring. In the tactical area, I think I just have more than most other players.
I like a girl who laughs a lot. That’s my main thing.
For me it’s very important to turn Kiev into one of the main centers of contemporary art in the world. There is New York. There’s London. And there will be Kiev. Everyone will come and say, ‘Wow!’
My two main trainers were John Dahmer and DJ Hyde. DJ Hyde mainlytaught me how to be tough: I mean, the beatings that he used to give the students as far as wrestling initiations go were as tough as they come, and I’m thankful for it.
Do you have any ambitions outside racing? My main ambition at the moment, whether inside or outside racing, is to become Formula 1 World Champion.
From a consideration of the immense volume of newly discovered facts in the field of physics, especially atomic physics, in recent years it might well appear to the layman that the main problems were already solved and that only more detailed work was necessary.
I think the rebuilding of the city has to start with the spirit first. So the music, the vibe, the connection spiritually with the artists. Everybody out here is the main key. A lot of people are still in a lot of tough situations. My heart still goes out to the people of New Orleans.
We have always been a great national party, with views on all the main issues. We recognise that what matters to people most are those things that affect their daily lives: schools, hospitals, transport and law and order and we have plenty to say about them.
Living with a single kidney is almost exactly like living with two; the remaining kidney expands to take up the slack. (When kidneys fail, they generally fail together; barring trauma or cancer, there’s not much advantage to a backup.) The main risk to the donor is the risk of any surgery.
Corruption is… the result of a decadent political regime. We are absolutely convinced that this evil is the main cause of social and economic inequality, and also that corruption is to blame for the violence in our country.
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador
Abdias do Nascimento was the first writer who gave me racial consciousness. It was through his books and writings that I first took in the real weight of race in our society. He was the main influence on me because in my family, race was never an issue.
I don’t really focus on these things – on what tags are given to me or what people think of me off the field – stuff like that. My main focus is always to do well on the field for the Indian cricket team. When people say good things about me off the field, I am more than happy to accept them.
The beauty of a main title is that you establish your main theme and maybe a bit of your secondary theme. You plant the seed that you’re going to go water later in the score. And so, having that removed just made it so much more difficult.
You have to make a lot of sacrifices, and the main thing you have to sacrifice is your privacy. It’s funny because when I was growing up, my daddy was and still is an insurance agent in our home town. He couldn’t go anywhere without somebody recognizing him or needing something from him.
It’s what the Pixies always said about music – they were writing songs and just trying not to be boring. That was their main motivation and it worked for them. I remember reading that and thinking that was the way to do it.
All of my free time is made up of motor sports endeavors, be them motorcycles or off-road racing or track days. I just love anything with an engine. That is one of my main loves. Obviously, my other well-known love is Kristen Bell.
When I walk down the runway, my main goal is to not think about the people watching. The idea of all eyes on me would make me too uncomfortable. As I step on the runway, I take a deep breath, focus on a point in the distance, and go!
The main thing I’m into is going about on a bike, taking random routes; I’m really into the idea of making up journeys, and just seeing where they take you, because they always end up taking you someplace freaky.
The main relationship in the whole series was the one between the camera and Fleabag. I had to convince myself that whoever was watching on the other side of the camera was instantlycomplicit with Fleabag and instantly a friend of hers.
I’m also very impressed with the best people in experimental electronic world, like Peta and Eckart Aillers and Finez and Jim O’Rourke and Oren Umbarci and Francesco Lopez. Most of them use the computer as their main instrument.
I wish more people knew that the only one of the three main parties where not a single MP flipped from one property to the next, and not a single MP avoided capital-gains tax, where every single London MP did not claim a penny of second-home allowance, was the Liberal Democrats.
If God is first, and you kind of center everything else around Him being the main focal point, you really can make decisions that will not only mold you, but God will see exactly how you’re making your decisions and then will bless you for it.
But the main things about a man are his eyes and his feet. He should be able to see the world and go after it.
Who would have ever thought that, within a couple months of getting into the WWE, that I’d be wrestling in the main event for the world championship? Then, nine months after getting here, actually being the world champion.
My main concern with the condition of mathematics in high school is that there’s a lot of fear involved! Math is not, generally speaking, presented in a fun way. The concepts, as I see them, are fun, and that’s the way I’d like to convey them myself.
You can never let anything distract you from your main objective. My only goal is to be great. That’s all I want. That’s all I ever aspire to be. Greatness is something nobody can ever take away from you, no matter what happens. So I put all my energy and focus into my craft.
The main objective in any song, the songs that I write, has always been that it reflect the way I feel, that it touch me when I’m finished with it, that it moves me, that it can take me along with it and involve me in what its saying.
I think the character does tend to suit an episodic thing, because what’s fun about him is that he doesn’t care about anyone else, and it’s very difficult for a main character – a lead character – in a movie to not care about anybody else.
I am a son of my nation. It does not matter whether I am prime minister, a soldier, or a policeman. The main thing is to be useful to the people, that I can look into people’s eyes, and that people see that there are real benefits from my activities.
That was all Rose, and Rose knew what she was doing. Her main thing was story.
The main consideration with those who, possessing some capital, propose to emigrate as the means of improving their condition, is, the society likely to be found in the land fixed on for their future residence.
I have done almost every human activity inside a taxi which does not require main drainage.
My mum and dad had four pubs when we were growing up, but the main one was the New Inn in Hattersley, on the estate. It was a very good pub.
In Japan, there are stormchannels on either side of the main roads. There were so many times when I’d fall into these ditches because I was lost in stories as I was walking along. It’s still dangerous for me to drive. I’ve driven into the gate outside my house numerous times.
Primes are the important main ingredient of numbers, for every number is either a prime or a product of primes.
I’ve traveled with Jack Murtha to Iraq three times to learn more about the region, talk with our diplomats and military leaders, and meet with our troops. Those visits are the main reason that I opposed the War in Iraq since its inception.
If you look in general at people who live in anarchy, they have quite high rates of death from either homicide or warfare or both. Anarchy is one of the main reasons for violence, and it may be the most important.
Wall Street shouldn’t be deregulated. I think Wall Street and Main Street need to play by the same set of rules. The middle-class can’t carry the burden any longer, that is what happened in the last decade. They had to bail out Wall Street.
Now my main goal is my solo career, so I want to keep doing that.
The main thing is to keep it simple, keep it real, be honest and pull no stunts. You can’t forget where you started and came from.
Well, as I understand it, the main supporters are beer companies and the pharmaceutical companies. I’d like them to show me the dead bodies from marijuana. But they can’t because there aren’t any.
Watching soccer is my main hobby, really. I’m no tactician or coach, but I enjoy watching the free flow of it, the different styles, and the histories behind clubs. Like Barcelona vs. Madrid – it’s not just a soccer game; it’s a geopolitical struggle. There are great storylines and no commercials.
Well, I liked it – that was the main thing. I liked it, but I didn’t think of it in terms of a career. I didn’t really know; I didn’t really think about it. One thing just led to another until finally I quit my job as a salesman and found myself working as a photographer.
The most important thing we have to do first of all in a war with the U.S., I firmly believe, is to fiercely attack and destroy the U.S. main fleet at the outset of the war so that the morale of the U.S. Navy and her people goes down to such an extent that it cannot be recovered.
I was never a big guy in pubs. I was never the main kind of aggressor or anything like that, but I found myself in trouble because I always had a mouth that would come back with something, and there was just never anyone who could make me be quiet.
My dad didn’t have a formal education, but he had a wonderful vocabulary. So in ‘Harvest,’ I wanted my main character to be an innately intelligent man who would have the vocabulary to say whatever he wanted in the same way as lots of working-class people can.
Each of us seems to have a main focus, a particular idea of practicality – a concept of ‘what we want out of life’ against which we judge our experiences.
Well, I am from India and I wanted to make films in English for the international market in India. So that was really the main thing, and then of course economically it was cheaper to make films in India.
My main regret about my years in football was keeping my mouth shut like a little mouse, not daring to speak out because I was told you left the managers to get on with the job and that the chairman must never interfere with the manager’s decisions or the performance of his team.
‘Are ‘Friends’ Electric?’ was two songs: the verse part and the talking part. Two different songs I couldn’t finish. One day I was playing the main verse part of ‘Are ‘Friends’ Electric?’ and after a few minutes I got frustrated, as normal, then started to play the other song, and realized they went together.
Other people, including me, have written books with main characters who were old and rich. Or old and brilliant. Old sages, old wizards, old rich people.
One of my main techniques for acting is I try to know almost nothing beyond the words that I have to say, because that’s my zone of control.

Whatever you perceive, you always make a story with yourself as the main character, and that dictates your life. Then when you read ‘The Four Agreements’, you hear another voice beneath the story, the voice that comes from your integrity, your spirit.
This is a cause that musicians can take to heart because one of our main reasons for being is to share our music with other people, and this takes us to people who probably wouldn’t otherwise get to hear music on quite this level.
I’ve had a lot of success over the years racing in New York, but the main point is that I feel the marathon is a different event, a lot more my event.
I’m not averse to helping Wall Street when it helps Main Street.
Traditionally, life has been divided into two main parts: a period of learning followed by a period of working. Very soon, this traditional model will become utterlyobsolete, and the only way for humans to stay in the game will be to keep learning throughout their lives and to reinvent themselves repeatedly.
But the nature of my main work in chemistry can be better represented by more than 280 English publications, of which roughly 200 concern the theory of chemical reactions and related subjects.
There are two main jobs in acting – the first one is to be a good actor, and the second one is to convince everyone that you’re a good actor.
It’s always scary when you’re doing a sequel to a film, because you don’t want to just repeat the first film in a different location like most sequels. You want to do something totally different, and something that actually expands the world of the main character.
I’ll always do the guitar parts since it’s my main instrument.
We wanted to make sure that the film covered the main issues of his life. Musicianship, appearance.
You get what you concentrate upon. There is no other main rule.
My dad served in the Air Force as ground crew for several years, and doesn’t really talk about it. I know that it’s there. I think my main thing about direct or indirect experiences as near to home as it were is the idea of self-sacrifice really.
The main thing is dancing, and before it withers away from my body, I will keep dancing till the last moment, the last drop.
I love acting. Acting is a true love of mine, acting and math. Although they are both creative, they use very different sides of your brain. And I love both. Acting is my first love, and that’s my main career, it really is.
If only we could persuade galleries to observe a fallow period in which, for two months every other year, new and old works of art could be sold in back rooms and all main galleries would be devoted to revisiting shows gone by.
This is how I define grace: you’re on the main stage, and it looks like it has been rehearsed 100 times, everything goes so smoothly. That’s where I get my confidence and success, from knowing that I have an edge because I know I’m prepared.
The three main political parties all agree the UKdeficit is high and needs to be brought down. All agree that it is easier to get a deficit down if you have faster growth, cutting unemployment-related costs and raising revenues.
Dishonesty is all about the small acts we can take and then think, ‘No, this not real cheating.’ So if you think that the main mechanism is rationalization, then what you come up with, and that’s what we find, is that we’re basically trying to balance feeling good about ourselves.
I think the main thing was that the character couldn’t speak in regular language, so he had to be mimed.
The Internet feeds off the main press, and the main press feeds off the Internet. They’re working in tandem.
So that’s my main role right now and really the politics also includes going out and communicating to the world why Apache is a good thing, why companies should be involved in it, and why individuals should be involved in it too.
For the record, I am sticking with my claim that the simultaneous degradation of air quality, water quality, water supply, food safety, soil quality, and other environment-related variables is the main challenge to China‘s continued development.
