We’re just into toys, whether it’s motorcycles or race cars or computers. I’ve got the Palm Pilot right here with me, I’ve got the world’s smallestphone. Maybe it’s just because I’m still a big little kid and I just love toys, you know?
People do evil things because they are evil. Some people are evil in the way that some things are coloured indigo. They commit their evil deeds not to achieve some goal, but just because of the sort of people they are.
Labelsfund things and have resources for you to use. But just because you sign doesn’t mean you sign yourself away so they can then tell you what to do. You need to have a plan yourself before they do.
When people say, ‘I don’t see you enough,’ well just because you don’t see me don’t mean I don’t exist, or just ‘cause you haven‘t heard me don’t mean I haven’t been making noise. But if I keep making noise, you’ll pick up.
You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete. A lot of people probably think I’m not athletic or don’t even try to work out or whatever, but I do. Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack.
But when I did think about it and looked at the whole package – the producersbehind the show, the writers, the cast I would be working with – I would have been a fool to turn it down just because the role for me was another gay role.
Just because you’re married doesn’t mean that you have to spend 24/7 together and can’t have separate interests and hobbies. In a healthy relationship, you both understand – and respect – that you need time apart doing what you want to do.
Because I don’t look like I’m skatingaround as hard as Bobby Bassen doesn’t mean my mind isn’t working twice as hard as Bobby’s mind. Just because I can’t fight like Kelly Chase doesn’t mean standing in front of the net getting cross-checked and slashed isn’t toughness as well.
I actually run a non-profit where one of the main objectives is to branch out and get a new audience for the theater. Just because the writing is so good and nothing is more effective than seeing something live and happening right in front of your face, so I definitely want to continue to pursue that.
The important thing is this Just because I’m doing well doesn’t mean that they’re going to do well if they get HIV. A lot of people have died since I have announced. This disease is not going anywhere.

You see people in the leftlane, and as long as they are on the speed limit, they stay there. Get in the right lane and let people pass you – let the policeworry about somebody who wants to speed. Don’t force them pass in the right lane and zig zag, which can create an accident, just because you think you’re correct.
We have to set our own agenda, we have to set our own standards, we have to be very strong about what we want, we have to be very strong about our passion and if it’s not right for you, you shouldn’t do it just because you’re advised by so-calledgeniuses.
The party lines don’t change, that’s what makes them a party and you’d be a fool to think that just because there’s a black man in there it’s not gonna change the real foundation of the system. Especially when you look at his largest contributor to his campaign, AIG, one of the culprits in the economicmeltdownitself.
Just because I’m in favor of gay rights doesn’t mean that I’m gay or doesn’t mean I’m some kind of ‘sissy‘ or something. That’s the language that you hear in lockerrooms.
Just because nobody complains doesn’t mean all parachutes are perfect.
Maybe strong leaders are not quite as alluring as we think, and we should celebrate the fact that our leaders are just like us. Just because one candidate can’t remember his whole speech and the other likes to put his feet up on the job doesn’t mean they can’t govern.
I think that just because you’ve been through an experience doesn’t make you the ultimatearbiter of what it means. We figure things out; we work things out through the help of other people who can engage with us but also be intelligently critical.
I don’t know what they’re thinking about. Just because someone says, ‘I like what you do’ or something: They might like it today and tomorrow they might not. I’ve had that experience with record companies.
I’ve probably had my best time acting – or not acting, or trying to not act – on things like ‘The Low Down’ or ‘Treacle Jr.’ I’m happiest doing things like that. Not just because they’re lead roles, but because there’s more freedom in them.
It’s always agonising to separate my life as an actress and personal life. Just because I’m happy with my acting life doesn’t mean I’m happy with my personal life. I’m always making an effort to balance between the two.
I would want to know if, at 15, if my daughterloves me the way she does right now. And if she’s proud of me, just because I want to be a good example for her, and seeing her grow and how much she loves Daddy saying ‘Daddy, te quiero mucho,’ which means ‘I like you a lot,’ those are the things that melt my heart.

Just because you have teenagers in a movie doesn’t make it a teen movie.
There’s this ridiculous idea that I’m a gendertraitor because I’m not a feminist. I’m supposed to be part of a sisterhood: you’re automatically supposed to supportall women just because you have the same genitals as them, which doesn’t make sense.
The first thing I do every day when I wake up is thank God for letting me make it through the night and giving me another day of life – just because sometimes I wake up, and I cannot believe I’m doing what I’m doing. I just thank Him. I don’t know how I deserve it, but it’s completely because of Him.
I want to have and adopt. I always have; ever since I was 18, I wanted a baby, and I wanted to have and adopt because there are a lot of kids. I want to adopt an American baby though, you know what I mean, no offense. Just because there are so many kids here that need our help.
Why should someone have to retrain themselves to use a new application that does the same basic thing as the old application, just because something as trivial as the operating system changed out from under them?
I can say that hands down from being in this business 32 years; we’re going to be much better than we were last year just because there’s eight new players that now have experience and Palacios will be healthy.
There might have been a point in my career where, because people have been telling me I’m an activist, I took on that label. But in retrospect, I don’t think that’s what I am – or what I’ve been – just because I’m vocal about my identity sometimes.
Friendship is two-sided. It isn’t a friend just because someone’s doing something nice for you. That’s a nice person. There’s friendship when you do for each other. It’s like marriage – it’s two-sided.
Just because you have kids doesn’t mean to say you need time off. I have a lot of time off anyway. If I’m promoting my book, like, for the next two weeks, I’m flat out. But then I’m off again. And when you’ve got the next product, it’s the same; you just condense it into a couple of weeks.
I was shot when I think it was number one. That was the catalyst for the interest in the show. Certainly it went on for a long time after that but that’s what really kicked it off. Of course a lot of people watched it just because of the novelty of the situation.
Just because a woman is over 50 does not mean she no longer has anything to offer. If anything, we have so much more to offer! We have lived life, we get better with age. I do my best work now in my 60s. Sure, I could retire; but what would I do? Play Bingo? I think not!
I’ve done a lot of pilots. A lot of shows. You’re young and you do a job just because you know someone gave you a job.
It was hard at school because, growing up, some people wanted to be friends with me just because they wanted to get to my dad and say that they had met him and had gone to our house. I didn’t understand it at the time, but the older I got and the more aware of it I became, it started becoming hard.
I don’t read reviews or interviews or anything, just because I’m afraid; If I believed the good, then I’d believe the bad, and there will be bad.

Just because I won the U.S. Open doesn’t mean I’m going to change the way I live.
Just because you see pictures of glaciersfalling into the ocean doesn’t mean anything bad is happening. This is something that happens all the time. It’s part of the natural cycle of things. We know from measurements that glaciers have been melting for 200 years at least.
Just because you’re scarred for life doesn’t mean you should be scared to live.
I’ve always thought that whether I’m writing or not, I’ve gotta pick the best songs, whether or not they’re mine. I’m not gonna sing them just because I wrote them. I’ve gotta find the best songs to make the best record I can.
It can get really messy inside my head, and it’s usually just because everybody can get really self-centered at some point. And so what usually keeps me from quitting is that my reasons for quitting are just lame. I wouldn’t want anybody else to talk to myself the way that I talk to myself.
You are dealing with people who have taken the responsibility of killing their own because they think that they are right, they think that they are serving the interests of their people. They not going to give that up easily, just because you’ve shown up.
For example, for me, my brother helped me get a manager, which I don’t take for granted. It’s tough getting a manager, let alone one that actually cares about you and is smart. But from there, no one’s going to cast me just because I’m James Franco’s little brother.
If I become defensive and upset right away, then that’s going to adversely affect how I deal with it and it’s probably not going to be good press for me and probably be bad just because I’m angry. Just be open and pleasant.
Traditional social media, in the view of our company, has become a bit repetitive. It doesn’t feel very good to be marketed to by your friends. Snapchat is different because it says, look, friends aren’t valuable to you just because they can get you into a cool party.
The problem with the Moodies is not what to play, it’s what to leave out! That’s always difficult. We stopped having support acts many years ago just because of that. We needed getting on to two hours; there’s such a big catalog to call on.
Most often the music does end up in the movie, and sometimes there’s a point where I wish that it wasn’t, just because I think the score would be more effective if there was less of it. But, again, that’s not my call.
The economical policies that are instigated really makes you think that the American government is a bunch of evil bastards. So just because you’re black, you’re still representing that government, and when Obama came into office he enacted the same policies that we would critique other presidents for.
I’m always looking for a chance to play somebody who’s completely opposite of me, just because I find it more interesting.

I’ve been on stage since I was 7. That’s where I’d rather be than anywhere else. Just because you can do a bunch of things doesn’t mean you are a bunch of things. I can act. I can sing. But I am a dancer.
Thread count is actually a lie. Just because a thread count is 1,500 on a set of sheets doesn’t mean that they’re well-made sheets. Truly, the quality of the cotton and the quality of the way something is woven is much more important than thread count.
Some of the guys that can teach you the best never really made it just because they couldn’t execute it themselves, but they can tell everybody else the reasons why everybody else made it and show you how. It’s just hard to find those people.
Just because you want to eat vegetables and eat well doesn’t mean you can’t share food and have fun with it. It should still be an exciting thing. It shouldn’t be just eating kale on your own in the corner.
I’ve worked with some of the great cinematographers. So I’m always watching what they do and I’m watching how the director composes his shots, just because I find it interesting as an actor; you’re trying to help them out as well.
There is no shame in black athletes not wanting to be role models, but there should be shame when they don’t behave like one. It’s a free country and people can do whatever they want. But just because we can doesn’t mean we should.
I can’t imagine a more fulfilling thing for a writer than that you’ve made a strong impact on the lives of other people. Just because I’ve heard it before does not mean I don’t want to hear it one more time.
Marginalized Americans should not be defined by the verbal and physical violence that looms over our heads. We have a right to exist, to live as we choose and to be free to pursue our happiness without the fear of others demonizing us or harming us just because of who we are.
I have a lot of milestones that I’m proud of when it comes to music, ‘Amerikkka’s Most Wanted,’ I’m extremely proud of that. Just because of what I had to go through to get that music produced, that album produced.
There was a time when someone would get on a plane and request to move their seat just because the person sitting next to them was of a different ethnicity or religion or nationality. But I don’t think my generation wants that. That’s how it used to be.
I think it’s really important for celebrities to use their power of money and fame to get their voices out there. It’s funny to me that we’re expected to keep quiet just because of who we are. Why do I lose my right to speak my mind because I’m famous?
I would love, more than anything, to do an out-and-out farce with huge physical energy. Just because you’re from the minimalist school, it doesn’t mean you can’t go big.
Moral persuasion over a period of time makes a difference, but we shouldn’t be naive to think that just because we raise it in a meeting it will make all those problems go away. It won’t and it doesn’t.
You should see my stepdad’s face when he’s lifting something. It’s the scariest thing I’ve ever seen! So you can’t expect, just because I’m a potentially pretty person, that I won’t allow myself to try out emotional states that might make me look ugly to some people.
Audiences in every medium are becoming far more savvy. No one goes to watch a Tom Cruise movie any more just because it’s starring Tom Cruise. No one gives a toss. Concept is what makes actors raise their game. Everyone’s on merit now.
Because I write the music, I write the lyrics, I write the vocal melody lines – I write everything. Just because I let somebody sing something doesn’t mean they’re more important than the bassplayer or the keyboard player or the drummer.
I read a bunch of books about Mengele because he was pretty sick. That was how ‘Angel Of Death’ came about. I know why people misinterpret it, just because we don’t say Nazism is very bad. They get this knee-jerk reaction to it.
I read books all the time. I’m just half looking for something to do; I mostly just read for pleasure. Occasionally I stumbleacross something that could be a movie, but I don’t put a book down just because I don’t see a movie in it, either.
I am for Obama, all the way. I don’t support Obama just because he is a black man; I support him because he is an educated black man. He is making black people proud.
I’d love to thwart the Census form, but I want a constitutional basis for doing it – and here’s the tricky thing. I think even constitutional purists would tell you that just because something isn’t in the Constitution does not mean the government cannot do it.
People love in different ways. You may have a man who brings you flowers every Monday but doesn’t give two hooty-hoots about Valentine’s Day. Just because he doesn’t give you a valentine doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you!
I prefer ordinary girls – you know, collegestudents, waitresses, that sort of thing. Most of the girls I go out with are just good friends. Just because I go out to the cinema with a girl, it doesn’t mean we are dating.
My big ‘don’t’ would be wearing something just because someone told you it looks cool. I think a lot of people fall victim to that – of doing something that’s a trend, but then you can tell if they don’t own it or don’t like it.
Free speech is one of the most important things to me, but I think it gets confusing when it comes to offense. Because for one, just because you have the right to say anything, it doesn’t mean you have to.
I think different games have a different chemicalrelease in your brainas far as reward goes. I like making puzzle games, just because I know I’m kinda good at it, and they really are superfun to work on.
People are going to copy your product if you build great stuff. Just because Yahoo has a search box doesn’t make it Google.
I’m actually one of the few kids in my grade, especially girls, who didn’t end up going to college, just because I already knew what I wanted to do. I had already been actively working in music before I graduated.
Just because you have experience driving doesn’t necessarily mean you have experience teaching how to drive.
There are a lot of artists that come and go very quickly, and I understand why just because someone has a No. 1 doesn’t necessarily mean they should be up for best male or female categories. I understand that Aria are protecting the integrity of what Aria is, but I do think that pop music isn’t recognised enough.
‘Downton Abbey‘ didn’t have the impact it had just because it was a good story about people. It was something about that period and that world that was fascinating to people on a level that wasn’t just as an entertainment.
I really connect with every character that I’ve played, just because I kinda have to; as an actor, you want to take them in and get to know them and like them; because they’re evil, you kinda have to like them so that you can understand them and play them and play them with some kind of empathy.
I do not think I am successful just because I have money. I’m successful because I love who I am and I have no regrets, and I’m successful because I have a great heart and I have compassion and I care and I would be happy with or without money.
You read a book, write a detailed review as proof you’ve read it, and they give you a badge. That’s where my competitive nature came out. Give me the badges! I would sit in the libraryall day, not ‘cos I loved reading, just because I needed those badges.
I believe that we are still hovering around the realm of Asians playing all types of Asians. I do not see that changing any time soon just because there is a limited pool of Asian actors.
I don’t think you should necessarily listen to a celebrity just because he is one. But if you can marshal your celebrity and really steep yourself in whatever issue you’re trying to promote, it can actually move the ball forward, and we’ve done that.
I try not to date where I work. It makes life easier. I don’t say no to anybody because I’d hope that people wouldn’t say no to me just because I’m an actor – but they’d have to be pretty extraordinary.
There’s nothing masculine about being competitive. There’s nothing masculine about trying to be the best at everything you do, nor is there anything wrong with it. I don’t know why a female athlete has to defend her femininity just because she chooses to play sports.
Just because I haven’t yet had any project surgery, I’m not going to knock it, because I think women have the right to do whatever they want to their bodies that make them feel good about themselves.
I am not sure how much Dudley will feature just because of the grand scale of the film and the fact that there are so many stories and characters to tie up. I haven’t seen the film yet but I think it will be a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but it was nice just to round it off and give it some closure.
I really don’t feel it’s necessary, as an actor, to make people feel uncomfortable, just because you need to be in a certain headspace. So, I do take myself away and do my own work and hunker down.
Many hated ‘Selma.’ Just because my voice and the voice of the people I come from is antithetical to so much of what Hollywoodproduces. I don’t think what I’m saying is in particular radical or anything; it’s just different from what they want to sell.
People have to realize that just because you’re a Christian, it doesn’t mean that you’re perfect, because every once in a while everyone stumbles. Living by faith is about when you do mess up, getting back up, brushing yourself off, and keep trying to improve where you mess up or where you have temptation.
‘Boomerang!’ I love that movie just because of Halle Berry, Robin Givens, EddieMurphy, Grace Jones and Eartha Kitt. There were so many characters. As an actress, to see African-American actors be so diverse was different from what I was used to seeing.
I think that you can take things personally or get hurt feelings as a result of something not working out just because your psyche said it should or you deserve it, or whatever it is.
There’s nothing like theater. It’s really amazing. But it does take up all of your time. I would like to get into more film, just because I find it super fascinating.
I think the name of the show, ‘This American Life‘ – we named it that just because it seemed like it made the thing feel big. But we don’t think about whether it’s an American story or not. We happen to be Americans. I think for the stories to work, they have to be universal.
Just because you don’t know if other people are experiencing the same thing as you are, it doesn’t mean that it’s not happening. Everybody doesn’t necessarily share everything. Just know that what you’re going through, other people are going through it, too.
There is a huge market for products and services aimed at what I like to call the PocketbookEnvironmentalist: a shopper who’s savvy enough to know things don’t necessarily have to cost more just because they’re good for the environment.
Runners and yogis are alike in lots of ways, and not just because some of us need yoga to unkink what running jams. Runners and yogis are also alike because of this tortoise shell idea, this ‘home’ we can access inside ourselves.
There’s a lot of projection that if you’re in service then you shouldn’t look good. I’m no different from anybody else. I like clothes, I like shoes, I like to go have nice dinners, I like to dance. Just because I’ve dedicated myself to serving women, why do you think I need to sacrifice myself?
When you’re around the kids, you feel like you act the most grown up just because you’re supposed to lead. I say things, like every other parent, that reminds you of your own parents. One thing I do know about being a parent, you understand why your father was in a bad mood a lot.
When I say, ‘I can’t stay long, I’m in-betweenmeals,’ that plays differently on the radio than it does in person. So I have to pick material that works because the words are funny, not just because of the images.
A lot of times, I get asked, ‘Do you feel you have a responsibility to young girls to be a role model?’ I don’t see that happening as much to guys. I feel like, just because I’m a girl, I’m supposed to take more responsibility? Is that how it works?
You could look at something a hundred times from space, but the next time you come around the world, suddenly it’s very different and gorgeous-looking, just because of the change of weather or the angle of the sun.
I’m a big potatochip girl. I don’t like chocolate and cakes and all that, but I have to have my potato chips. I’ve got bags in the back of my car right now! But I never beat myself up about it, because, look: You can’t give up every damn thing. You need something in your life that you like just because you like it!
The patriarchy is alive and well in Egypt and the widerArab world. Just because we got rid of the father of the nation in Egypt or Tunisia, Mubarak or Ben Ali, and in a number of other countries, does not mean that the father of the family does not still hold sway.
There really is no shortcut just because you have a name, or you have some kind of access or some way you can solve all the problems. And I think one of the things I learned with FUBU, you have to understand that there’s really only two ways of operating a business: more sales, or loweroverhead.
Just because you are on TV, it doesn’t mean you’re not going to make mistakes.
Tyler James Williams
I’m not crazy about arenas just because I can sell them out. It doesn’t do anything for my ego at all. I want to play places where people don’t have to sit in the nosebleed seats and wonder what the hell is going on.
I must confess that I lead a miserable life. For almost two years, I have ceased to attend any social functions, just because I find it impossible to say to people, ‘I am deaf.’ If I had any other profession, I might be able to cope with my infirmity; but in my profession, it is a terrible handicap.
I tell everyone that works for me not to look down on people. If you’re nice to people and take a minute to talk with them, it’s good for business whether or not they buy anything. Just because they don’t look like they have money doesn’t mean they’re poor.
I think Prince should open up a little more to other artists. Just because we love Prince. Especially the old stuff – we love him to death. But if he opened up he would be something to deal with. Imagine KanyeWestproducing a Prince track? It would be banoodles!
Just because you are having difficulty in a relationship doesn’t mean the love you feel in a relationship is not necessarily real. Or just because you actually can’t be together in a relationship, doesn’t necessarily mean the relationship is not real.
The point is to expand the scope of what a movie can possibly mean or be, to get people involved because they’re artistic or understand the point of the material, not just because they fit a certain bill aesthetically.
And people are always saying he deceptively quick, deceptively athletic, and I don’t know if that’s just because I’m Asian or what it is, but obviously there’s going to be stereotypes that you have to fight.
Maybe there are logical reasons for a gay person not to have a great relationship with their parents – not because there’s a parent who made him gay, but just because it may be difficult to understand everything.
Relationships, for me, have been elusive. And I would say mostly it’s been my fault. I was always more concentrated on my career. And yes, you do question people’s motives. Is it just because I’m him – I’m Nathan Lane?
Just because you’re a star on television doesn’t mean that you can be a music phenomenon or an artist. You have to have the material to back it, and it’s all about hit songs. I can name you every ‘Idol’ winner and why they didn’t go on to have success – their songs. The ones who have – their songs.
I have male friends. I’m the type of girl that always had male friends, more male friends than female friends. So just because you see me with the person doesn’t mean that I’m kicking it with them, hanging out with them, or we’re romantically involved in any way, shape or form.
Give your kid some credit for being smart – just because they read about something doesn’t mean they will do it.
I’m saddened to see that everyone’s pitched out the baby with the bath, in that we say that it can’t be one or the other, it could be both. I mean, just because we listen to classical music doesn’t mean that we can’t listen to jazz.
I think to be – for me to be an American is – you know, it’s one of the greatest things in the world for – you know, for me just because I’ve been able to grow up with everything. The freedom. You know, in my eyes this is the greatest country in the world.
Some said he couldn’t take on the insurance companies that were ripping us off. But President Obama made the tough and right call to save lives, save Medicare and ensure no one goes broke just because they get sick.
Just because you’re convicted in a court room doesn’t mean you’re guilty of something.
Julia Roberts most definitely would play me in the film of my life. Not just because of the hair but because she has all sides to her personality come through in films that I could just imagine her playing my crazy self so well.
There’s so many great matches that you can think of. I could fantasy book all kinds of stuff, you know, fight a few family members. If we could have Umaga back, I would love to wrestle him in any arena in any town just because of how good he was.
There are times when what you do will be mysterious to everyone… times when you have to change directions before people are ready. Just because someone does something that critics don’t like or understand doesn’t mean you’re failing as a musician. It probably means you’re growing.
I guess the first big name I worked with was Sissy Spacek, and that was really interesting just because she’s so incredible and I learned so much from just watching her. But she’s also so unassuming that I loved working with her. It wasn’t like working with a star, it was Sissy. Not a big deal.
I’m not going to limit myself just because people won’t accept the fact that I can do something else.
I don’t think people expect BruceSpringsteen to come out in a pink satin jacket, but Rod Stewart, they do. And I like doing it; I don’t wear it just because I think I have to. I’m a very flamboyant person.
Just because you’re part of ‘Twilight‘ does not mean you’re a superstar. It means that you’re given the opportunity to maybe become one later if you work hard. Once fandom goes away, which it will very soon, it’s all about having your prioritiesstraight and working hard.
Just because you’re passionately interested in something doesn’t mean it has to be your career. You might have to look for more than one passion. Some passions may afford a career and some may not.
I often find during a day of shooting I will speak in an American accent all day long when I’m doing dialogue. At the end of the day, it often takes an effort when I’m talking to my fiancee to bring my English back just because you’re so used to speaking that way.
You go on these Internet blogs and people say the meanest things. I’m a normal person. Just because I’m in the spotlight doesn’t mean I’m God’s gift to the world. I’m learning and making mistakes just like every other 17-year-old girl out there.
You look at a Pete Rose to be the terrific athlete he is and then he falls on hard times, but when he played the game, I got something from the way he played the game because he hustled every play, and just because he had one mistake in his life, am I supposed to throw back everything that I gained from him?
Unless I really make an effort, I quite enjoy looking a bit off and something looking a bit wrong. That’s how I feel most comfortable. If anything, it’s just because I’m, like, very scatty and not very good at putting stuff together.
Glue actually contaminates recyclables. We throw things in a landfill just because they’re glued together.
I think that was one thing I definitely brought to the table, my aggressiveness and my style of play, and I think that’s one of the reasons why the fans here really appreciated the way that I went out and played, just because I think they kind of liked that.
I can say pretty confidently that I am not the right guy to do a superhero movie, just because I was not a comic book kid. I don’t know that mythology, and I don’t have it ingrained in me in the way that a lot of these other directors do.
What does it mean to be an oncologist? It means that you get to sit in at a moment of another person’s life that is so hyper-acute, and not just because they’re medically ill. It’s also a moment of hope and expectation and concern.
Beauty is only skin deep. If you go after someone just because she’s beautiful but don’t have anything to talk about, it’s going to get boring fast. You want to look beyond the surface and see if you can have fun or if you have anything in common with this person.
Unfortunately, I’m more experienced than I care to admit on long-distance relationships. Just because that is my life. I travel because I love to. As a result, I have to sort of make it work when a relationship kind of comes into view.
Hollywood is the place to be for actors – and there’s just a big rush when an Australian comes over just because there’s less of them. I guess that’s just how it is. Like if you pick a pink jellybean out of a jar of green ones it’d be amazing, but if you pick a green one, no one will care.
I love ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I was so excited to be able to be on this show, just because I personally watch it. Of course, I come from Disney, and I have a lot of young fans, but I do have fans who have grown with me as well.
People take years learning how to act; it’s a skill, not just a job. If I tried it out and thought I’d be OK, then perhaps I’d go for it, but it’s not the kind of thing you can get into just because of your looks.
‘Lucky’ is for laughs, and there’s really nothing funny that I’m doing on ‘Dexter.’ I think more than anything, both comment on the fact that anybody is capable of anything. Just because they are the shy guy in the corner doesn’t mean that they are a harmless little bunny.
If I’m on form and I’m not being bothered too much by mental problems or whatever, I can whip out something good. That’s why I’ve done quite a few overdubs for TinaTurner and things like that, because even before she made this comeback I said yes to her, just because I love Tina Turner.
When we decided to go to Cuba to perform, we did it because we just wanted to build a bridge, you know, between Cuba and the rest of the community. And we just wanted to prove that music and art need to be over all ideology or way to think life, and we just wanted to go in there and play just because of love.
Just because something’s legible doesn’t means it communicates. More importantly, it doesn’t mean it communicates the right thing. So, what is the message sent before somebody actually gets into the material? And I think that’s sometimes an overlookedarea.
In 2017, it’s discouraging that it seems like we’re going backward. And that’s not just because of Trump; that’s because we, as humans, condone discrimination; it’s a human issue. It’s part of something bigger.
I love dancing just because I’ve done it my whole life and it’s definitely what I want to do. I feel like, I want to train with acting and do movies. Those two are my main priorities. I definitely want to be able to sing and model, too. I definitely love those, too.
Don’t ever know who you may meet, or just because a person may not be dressed up all fancy, don’t mean they’re not an important person. You just don’t ever know who you’re gonna meet in life. So that’s why I look at everybody as equal. Can’t just judge. I treat everybody with respect. Every man.
I just use all the skills that I learned in film school, and I just incorporate them into my sketches. People don’t realize that, with a story, there has to be a beginning, middle and end. There has to be a problem and a resolution. Just because it’s six seconds doesn’t mean it’s not a story.
I believe every woman’s body is beautiful in its own way. I have never understood that just because a woman has thickthighs, she is considered fat. For so long, I’ve been around in the modeling world and have tried to break that barrier. But I think now it’s turning around.
When I first did ‘The Fast and the Furious’, I didn’t want there to be a sequel on the first one. I thought, ‘Why would you rush to do a sequel – just because your first film is successful?’
I don’t want fame as far as the tweeting or the image of it. But, the idea of being famous is actually exciting to me, just because then you can have a choice in what you do. I would like to be at a point where I’m not asking for parts anymore, and I’m actually just choosing between a part that I want to do.
It’s a tragedy, in a way, that Americans are brought up to think that they cannot feel for other people and other beings just because they are different. They think they’re different. It’s very limiting.
Muhammad Ali was my idol, and I always say, if Muhammad Ali had told me the exact same thing my mother, the principal, the security guard, my brothers… you know, the same thing they were telling me that I didn’t listen to, I would have listened, just because it came from Muhammad Ali.
President Kennedy was willing to go to war. He was not a coward. The man had been in war and so had Ken O’Donnell. He was ready to protect this nation, but he was not ready for a military solution just because it was being rammed down his throat.
Some people think they are worth a lot of money just because they have it.
My friends always laugh because I’m the kind of person who bought the Brooks Brothers school skirt, even though it’s not my school’s uniform skirt, but just because I liked it. I’m a knee-high socks kind of person.
I played in Europe and it was a great experience, not just because of my team-mates and the coaches we had, but from the fans and the city itself – I played in Gothenburg and I played in Lyon and soccer was everywhere.
I started writing morning pages just to keep my hand in, you know, just because I was a writer and I didn’t know what else to do but write. And then one day as I was writing, a character came sort of strolling in and I realized, Oh my God, I don’t have to be just a screenwriter. I can write novels.
Here’s the thing. Just because you’re pro-troops doesn’t mean you’re pro-war. And just because you’re anti-war doesn’t mean you’re anti-troops. Just because you don’t support the war people think you are anti-troops and you are a bad guy.
As an artist, you have to work hard for things that you can’t really hold in your hand. I work not for money but for my career, to expand myself as an artist. Every video I make, it’s not making me any money; it’s just because I want to expand.
When Christians start thinking about Jesus, things start breaking down, they lose their faith. It’s perfectly possible to go to church every Sunday and not ask any questions, just because you like it as a way of life. They fear that if they ask questions they’ll lose their Christ, the very linchpin of their religion.
A large fraction of the most interesting scientists have read a lot of SF at one time or another, either early enough that it may have played a part in their becoming scientists or at some later date just because they liked the ideas.
Just because there are celebrities in a movie, it doesn’t mean anything. I don’t think The Ant Bully did all that well the first week at the box office. Compare the movies that have a lot of celebrities with the Jimmy Neutron movie, which had no celebrity voices and grossed almost one hundred million dollars.
And I’ve never taken up a sport just because it was a social fad.
Just because we’re on schedule is no reason to shoot bad acting. Someone once said to me, ‘You’re inconsiderate.’ And I said, ‘Inconsiderate? Bad acting is the ultimate inconsideration.’ It’s a collectiveslap to a million faces at the same time.
I’ve always loved Houdini, not just because of what he did, but also because of what he stood for. He was a self-made man in a time when the idea of celebrity was still new, and he used his celebrity for good.
I grew up in the South under segregation. So, I know what terrorism feels like – when your father could be taken out in the middle of the night and lynched just because he didn’t look like he was in an obeying frame of mind when a white person said something he must do. I mean, that’s terrorism, too.
Being taken seriously, for a young writer, is a wonderful form of encouragement, but at the same time, I don’t think one should ever feel like attempting a kind of artistic endeavor is beyond your scope just because of age or inexperience.
Just because people are calling you skinny doesn’t mean I’m like, ‘Yay!’ No! You’re telling me I don’t look right. This is me, this is my body – I have accepted it.
I have been very clear to everybody that just because I’m getting married does not mean I call myself a straight.
Just because you listen to The National, Spotify might tell you that you want to listen to The Lumineers’ music. Well, maybe you don’t.
Just because you’re from a city ten miles outside of St. Paul. It doesn’t mean you don’t read magazines, or the incredible Internet, and what’s going on in the world. I never, ever take a client, or women, for granted.
I got told by pretty much everyone I knew that, if I’m going to be out in L.A., working, you need a car. So I was thinking, I’m going to try and not get a car, just because I’m a contrarian that way.
Those people behind the mosque have to respect, have to appreciate and have to defer to the people of New York. The wound is still there. Just because the wound is healing you can’t say, ‘Let’s just go back to where we were pre-9/11.
A lot of people have told me, ‘You’re not this and so can’t play that,’ and I can’t tell you the amount of times I’ve been told I’m not sexy. I just go: ‘I’m a lot of things. Just because I don’t wear my sexiness overtly doesn’t mean that I can’t become that girl for a role.
What right does Congress have to go around making laws just because they deem it necessary?
Somebody will come on TV singing, and you’re like, ‘Oh my God! I mean, they suck! You know, who signed them?’ Well, it’s just because she’s good lookin’, or it’s because he’s takin’ his shirt off and he’s muscley or something, or else he wouldn’t have gotten his chance.
Due to the fact that I experienced personally the situation of a political prisoner, I have an historical commitment to all those that were or are prisoners just because they expressed their views, their public opinion, their own opinions.
Just because someone tells you they love you, it doesn’t mean they actually do.
I feel like I’ve been very smart in the way that I carry myself and treat myself. I feel like my mom was a big part of that just because she’s always let us make our own decisions, and we’ve known very much about the mistakes and the dangers already of whatever this Hollywood life may be.
I think I’m prouder of ‘The Victim’ than anything else, just because, if nothing else, it doesn’t look silly, it doesn’t look stupid. It holds up. It’s fun. A lot of people have enjoyed it, and I’m real happy about it.
I always gravitatetowards the independent side of things, just because those are the stories I always fall in love with, but you don’t really get paid, and living in Los Angeles is expensive, and I have a mortgage to pay. So it’s good to jumponto a studio film and then in all my other time do small passion projects.
My mom is real passionate and a family-first woman. She always told me that just because I can shoot a basketball better than someone else, I shouldn’t think that I’m better than them. I know if I change, my friends and family would lay me down. She just wants to see her kids do right.
That’s one of the things that is hardest about being the Bachelor. You often have to end relationships that are actually going quite well, just because your time together is up. If other relationships are further along, you have to go with your gut and follow your heart.
I’m very proud of ‘Gavin and Stacey,’ but I think I have to write something else even to start to consider myself a writer. Just because you do something once, it doesn’t mean that’s who you are. I played football last night; it doesn’t mean I’m a footballer.
Growing up, I idolized Big Boss Man and Bam Bam Bigelow just because they were big guys who could move and were tough. I felt like they both rode motorcycles. And Bam Bam had his head tattooed. Those are the guys who really got me into wrestling.
There are people who’ll dismiss me as ‘just’ a singer. That’s how it is, how it’s always been, but just because I’m not hunched over a piece of paper with a pen in my hand doesn’t mean I’m not putting in the graft.
One false word, one extra word, and somebody’s thinking about how they have to buy paper towels at the store. Brevity is very important. If you’re going to be longwinded, it should be for a purpose. Not just because you like your words.
The bottom line is fans just want to hear a good song. Some people will look underneath to see who wrote it, but they just want to hear a good song. And if they don’t hear it, they’re not going to buy it just because you wrote it.
All white people in the United States have benefited from a white supremacy. But does that mean that a white person should be viewedbadly because they turn against a white supremacist policy? Just because you’ve benefited from something shouldn’t disable you from repudiating it.
I’m far from being reclusive. I have 30- or 40-year friendships that I prefer to meeting new people. I go to an occasional party, but just because I don’t go to a lot of events, and I’m not out in public all the time doesn’t mean I’m anti-social or a recluse.
Just because it’s in print doesn’t mean it’s the gospel.
I never realized it until I watched an interview, but sometimes my brain stutters between thoughts, and for some reason it comes out as an ‘ummmm.’ I’m hoping it’s because I’m so smart, and there’s just too much information to process, but it’s more than likely just because it’s a small processor.
First and foremost, I would like to start off by saying that just because my husband is an entertainer, that does not mean that our personal business is for everyone’s entertainment purposes.
I like recording by myself wherever I can, just because then I feel like I have ultimate freedom, and I can just control whatever I want to put down. There’s something about going into your own little world.
I don’t see how we can have both the freedoms we had before and the safety net that we all need considering the way the world is today. And that’s just because human beings can’t trust each other. We’ve given in over and over to some of the darkestelements that exist in life itself.
It used to be the case, like you’d switch jobs, and then maybe you wouldn’t keep in touch with all the people that you knew from that old job, just because it was too hard. But one of the things that Facebook does is it makes it really easy to just stay in touch with all these people.
I opt for clothes that complement my body type. I am not someone who will go for something just because it is trendy and not look good on me. I would choose clothes which are comfortable and accentuate my body type.
Let’s get one thing straight: I am not an adrenaline junkie. Just because you cover conflict doesn’t mean you thrive on adrenaline. It means you have a purpose, and you feel it is very important for people back home to see what is happening on the front line, especially if we are sending American soldiers there.
Why on earth is the ‘New Yorker‘ publishing puffpieces about pretty girls who go to parties? Does the ‘New Yorker’ ever run photos of cute boys just because they’re cute and they come from money and they go to lots of parties?
I’m a huge Muppets fan. Gigantic. I think they’re genius. I think they’re some of the best work out there and completely underrated, just because of how genius they are. I love that kind of humor. It’s so innocent but brilliant.
Just because someone lives in a hut, that doesn’t mean that isn’t a good person, that that person can’t do better, that person isn’t capable of being great. And just because it’s a hut – whatever that means – doesn’t mean it’s not a home.
Even though I am fortunate to have certain luxuries, sometimes, I am even amazed by what people with money have and do. I want to remind people that just because you might be rich and famous, it doesn’t mean you have to take yourself too seriously.
I get a lot of ‘Oh, you’ve been gone.’ I wasn’t gone. Just because you didn’t see me doesn’t mean I wasn’t working and collectingchecks. I just wasn’t singing and doing videos. I do a lot of other things, like I said, like writing scripts and stuff like that. I write for other artists.
I’m not one of your knockabout, knuckle-scarred, Internet-controversy-courting book critics. Occasionally I stumble into controversy accidentally, but not because I enjoy it. It’s probably just because I’m a weird person.
The thing about a hero, is even when it doesn’t look like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, he’s going to keep digging, he’s going to keep trying to do right and make up for what’s gone before, just because that’s who he is.
I’m a mother myself, and sometimes mothers get a bad rap just because they’ve tried to do their job. Some people have more of a knack for it than others do, but almost all of it falls to, ‘My mother’s suffocating me.’ Whatever.
I don’t like spiders, man, just because they are sneaky – they just really scare me. They are hairy – ugh.
People have always called me Schneider Monkey just because of my energy and mass consumption of bananas. Plus, I just love monkeys, so I thought, ‘Well, I love monkeys, I love my fans, why not put the two together?’
For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change. And I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction.
The joy of doing ‘Sandman’ was doing a comic and telling people, ‘No, it has an end,’ at a time when nobody thought you could actually get to the end and stop doing a comic that people were still buying just because you’d finished.
If you don’t feel like you’re ready to get your license – just because people are putting pressure on you, don’t feel like you have to rush into something. Take your time, really feel confident and be ready. It doesn’t matter what other people say, do what’s best for you and makes you feel safe.
Just because you get to a certain number doesn’t mean you have to roll up into a ball and wait for the grim reaper. We were put on this earth to do something! If you stop using your brain, at any age, it is going to stop working. It’s like if you stop using your hand, it will atrophy. I think doing nothing is a curse.
I did a terrible television pilot that was so badly written and dumb that it became a turning point for me and I decided that I would never accept a job just because I needed the money.
That’s what we wanted to get across in that moment, particularly when Shaun goes to the shop when he’s all hung over. He doesn’t notice any of the zombies around him just because he never had before, so why should he at that point?
I really believe that you grow up a certain way in New York. There’s a New York morality, a sense of loyalty. You know how to win and lose. There’s a thousand kids outside, you know who to push and who not to push. There’s a sixth sense you develop just because it’s New York.
No matter what, your parents are going to worry about you. I had a tour bus, and my mother still thought I was broke. Remember: It’s your life, not theirs. Just because your parents sent you to college doesn’t mean they bought the rest of your life.
I had this totally impossible dream of being an actress. Trust me, just because I’m lucky enough to be doing this doesn’t make any of this less of a pipe dream. And nothing gets my juicesflowing like a really great performance. To see someone on stage, I get really excited.
I would be an actress for the rest of my life just because it’s really relaxing. Writing is hard work, and stand-up is so stressful before you get on stage, but acting is a complete ensemble experience.
Those people who shun us just because of the label we’re on, or the fact that we’ve got a video out there that’s getting us somewhere, are only limiting themselves, because they aren’t keeping an open mind.
They say that a good cook can ignitesparks by the way he kisses. The way I see, just because a guy can turn on the stove doesn’t necessarily make him a good cook.
Just because you’ve made a couple movies, you’ve done some good movies, you’ve been nominated for some AcademyAwards, whatever, nobody’s entitled. It’s a business. If they don’t see it, I can think they’re wrong, but I’m not entitled to a $15 million budget to make a film.
