I think there’s something really painful about your identity being entirely composed of ghosts.

Instead I wanted it to be, first and foremost, a thing that I lived.
I find it utterly bizarre that total strangers write about your life in a completely fictional manner.

President Obama’s Department of Education pledged to solve the student debt crisis, but it was utterly inept in its effort to address the issue.
The largest issue with search is that we learned about it when the web was young, when the universe was ‘complete’ – the entire web was searchable!

True respect means taking other people’s beliefs seriously and assuming they are adult and intelligent enough to be able to cope with it if you tell them, clearly and civility, why you think they are totally, utterly and disastrously wrong.
I’ll meet listeners who tell me what a great voice I have. But I don’t have a great voice for radio. My voice is the utterly normal voice, but sheer repetition has made them think it’s OK. Mick Jagger once was asked, ‘What makes a hit song? He said, ‘Repetition.’
I believe art is utterly important. It is one of the things that could save us.
Eighteenth-century doctors prescribed sugar pills for nearly everything: heart problems, headache, consumption, labor pains, insanity, old age, and blindness. Hence, the French expression ‘like an apothecary without sugar’ meant someone in an utterly hopeless situation.
I was at Yale from 1953 to 1957, and I tried to commit suicide in my freshman year because I was gay, and I thought I was the only person in the school who was. I was just totally and utterly miserable.

Extending criminal liability to innocent third-party digital currency exchangers, or any other third-party financial institution, would be an utterly unwarranted and unjust misinterpretation both of law and policy.

There is nothing I can think of that is quite as isolating as this.

Al Gore adopted three utterly different personas in three national presidential debates.
Alcoholics are utterly dear one minute, but there is also a blanket hatred with which you cannot reason.
Freedom requires virtue. Virtue requires faith. And faith, in turn, requires freedom. You can’t have coerced state-sanctioned religion. It has to be utterly free.
A written constitution guides and directs the application of law in a way utterly unlike oral guidance. It reminds us that the certainty and consistency of legal application is essential.
So America’s president now says most Jewish American voters are either ignorant or disloyal. It’s such a dreadful thing to say, so heavy with historical hatred and violence, that it’s utterly unsurprising in U.S. President Donald Trump’s mouth. And his supporters nod and say he’s right.
All science requires mathematics. The knowledge of mathematical things is almost innate in us. This is the easiest of sciences, a fact which is obvious in that no one’s brain rejects it; for laymen and people who are utterly illiterate know how to count and reckon.
As long as I am capable of working, and can learn lines and move around, I will carry on. I’d be utterly bored if I stopped.

What we are missing, utterly and completely, in this government is accountability.
What I did was take the Jesus of the Gospels, the Son of God, the Son of the Virgin Mary, and sought to make Him utterly believable, a vital breathing character.

It is the women who bring the men to this world: men are there because of women. It was my mother who brought me out of a health condition that threatened to usurp me completely. If we still treat women with disrespect, it is utterly shameful.
It was better, he thought, to fail in attempting exquisite things than to succeed in the department of the utterly contemptible.

Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
The fatal metaphor of progress, which means leaving things behind us, has utterly obscured the real idea of growth, which means leaving things inside us.

The ending is one of my blackest, utterly without hope of any sort.
I’m an utterly average, total geek.
Writing is such a strange, utterly mysterious process. First, there was nothing; then, suddenly, there was something. I don’t know where thoughts are born. Where the hell does it come from? I don’t know. I really don’t know.

Robert Dale Owen
A presidential candidate’s great desire is to be seen as pragmatic, and they hope their maneuvering and shifting will be seen in pursuit of some higher purpose. It doesn’t mean they are utterly insincere.

I have to think that I think it’s always been a horse race between this administration’s temporary political acumen and their completely, utterly, totally bankrupt policies. And they’re coming home to roost. It was always a question of time. These guys aren’t conservative. These guys are radicals.
Few delights can equal the presence of one whom we trust utterly.
Abstract art: a product of the untalented sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered.
‘The Cauliflower’ is full of these bizarre anecdotes, some of them petty, others moving or whimsical, as its many characters try to make sense of the universe in which they live – a universe strange, febrile, and utterly unique.

Aiyana is my heart that runs around and lives outside my body. We have spent the last nine years so utterly together. Bringing her up almost single-handedly has been exhilarating, exhausting and empowering.
You parents of the wilful and the wayward! Don’t give them up. Don’t cast them off. They are not utterly lost. The Shepherd will find his sheep. They were His before they were yours – long before He entrusted them to your care; and you cannot begin to love them as He loves them.
Orson F. Whitney
NASA is an utterly fascinating place, and the fact that the buildings look so anonymous almost makes it more fascinating. You walk by a generic office-park-looking building, and you have no idea what’s going on inside.
In the early 1940s, as a young teenager, I was utterly appalled by the racist and jingoist hysteria of the anti-Japanese propaganda. The Germans were evil, but treated with some respect: They were, after all, blond Aryan types, just like our imaginary self-image. Japanese were mere vermin, to be crushed like ants.
Do not grieve yourself too much for those you hate, nor yet forget them utterly.
A suit is just a suit: a practical garment, not a ceremonial robe; it can be worn out to dinner with friends or for a visit to an art gallery. Its beauty and craftsmanship are utterly wasted if you think of it as something magical and symbolic.

Indestructible does not mean utterly invincible.
The most terrifying thing I can think of is being alone – and I mean utterly alone, like no one else in the world alone – at night. That’s the nucleus of the first story in my collection and it’s also where the title came from for the book.
I come from an area of southern England that is utterly homogenous. All the history near me is about royalty and fealty, things which leave me cold. I lack roots, and have great warmth for places that have them.

I feel like everyone else in this country today. I am utterly devastated.
The pilot system in television is utterly broken. It’s a huge waste of money.

At all levels – with men and women – the 3-point shot has utterly transformed the way the game is played. More and more, the players are spread out, looking to pop behind the 3-point arc.
She doesn’t do the things heroines are supposed to. Which is rather Jane Austen’s point – Fanny is her subversive heroine. She is gentle and self-doubting and utterly feminine; and given the right circumstances, she would defy an army.
Somerset desperately needs more high-end music making on its doorstep, so the chance to share great music spanning genres as diverse as orchestral classics, trip hop and jazz, in the utterly relaxed and cathartic environment of a Somerset field, is for me the fulfilment of a long-term dream.
In the world at large, people are rewarded or punished in ways that are often utterly random. In the garden, cause and effect, labor and reward, are re-coupled. Gardening makes sense in a senseless world. By extension, then, the more gardens in the world, the more justice, the more sense is created.
When it comes to whaling, Iceland is an international outlaw. Years of global negotiations and declarations have failed utterly to end its illegal slaughter of whales. It’s time to send Iceland a message it can’t ignore: trade sanctions.
When friendship disappears then there is a space left open to that awful loneliness of the outside world which is like the cold space between the planets. It is an air in which men perish utterly.
Almost all decisions based on cost accounting are utterly wrong.
To be here in America so soon after the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage and at the birth of the Caitlyn phenomena feels so timely. It feels perfect for my universe to collide with Caitlyn’s, but on a purely personal level, I just think she is utterly fabulous and brave.

James A. Moore

Many a man who has known himself at ten forgets himself utterly between ten and thirty.
Catherine Drinker Bowen
The vast majority of free verse is ghastly. Utterly ghastly. No one reads it. No one listens to it.
In a way, I wish none of it had ever happened – Facebook, Twitter – if it had never happened the world would have just carried on serenely. It’s utterly redundant and yet we all have to be involved in it somehow.
So much of my writing derives from these questions that I ask myself – things that are utterly beyond my personal set of experiences – and it’s my attempt to try to… understand, to sort of break out of my own consciousness, you know, the limitations of my own life.
In looking at difficulties in the black American community over the years, it has always astounded me how much white Americans take for granted the rich and utterly decisive heritage of Western culture.

I was on a very bumpy plane ride, an overnight flight. I was so miserable, and I pulled out ‘David Copperfield,’ and I forgot how scared and tired I was, and I thought, ‘This is what reading should be.’ I’m utterly transported out of my current situation.
I am utterly, consummately intense, wearing sunflowers and poppies and dahlias in my buttonhole.
Harry Graf Kessler
Saudi Arabia operates according to the belief that God made young men and women so utterly and completely without self-control that they must be physically segregated every moment of the day and night.
And these two elements are at odds with one another because Freud is utterly adversary to almost all the ways of structuring the human experience found in Western religions. No Western religion can countenance Freud’s view of man.
If there’s anything you absolutely hate, why, it must be unconstitutional. Or, if there’s anything you absolutely have to have, it must be required by the Constitution. That’s where we are. That is utterly mindless.

Anything written or printed under a print or picture takes the attention from it and, if it is very black or white in any marked degree, will utterly destroy its beauty.
It’s fashionable in some circles to be pessimistic about America, about conservative solutions, about the Republican Party. I utterly reject that pessimism.
Each story presents a mystery that has to be solved in the process of writing. When I’m at work on a story, I’m completely immersed in that world and in the lives of those characters; they’re utterly real to me. Then, when I’ve completed the story, it all just falls away. The whole compulsion to understand is over.
In ‘The King’s Speech,’ patriotism is utterly contained within a historical moment, the third of September, 1939, where the aggressor is clear, the fight is clear, it hasn’t become complicated over time.
Certainly, grades only matter so much when you’re in Hollywood. But I became an utterly motivated, devoted, committed student. I was a good student because I was convinced that it would somehow help me in my quest to become a filmmaker.
I am utterly ambitious. I’m ambitious for the sake of being so, too.
I was racing through life, utterly confused and angry. I don’t know if I was out of control; it was more like I felt frustrated with myself and everything I saw happening around me.
I was, without a sliver of a doubt, a no-good, lazy slacker of a child, and after I discovered literature, I was totally and utterly a no-good, lazy slacker of a child who read books. A lot of books, good and bad, but my favourite – the books I read and reread in my teens – were by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.
I long for books; I am utterly greedy about them.
The treatment by some towards these young refugees is hideously racist and utterly heartless. What’s happening to our country?
A girl must have an indefinable magic, real character, a strong sense of self. Her role is to respond to the brief of a photographer or communicate the vision of a designer – while making whatever she does look utterly effortless and whatever she wears utterly seamless.
Absolutely not, because in acting I’ve found a domain that suits me perfectly. And that is so utterly rare.
If you get into really learning about the roots of monotheism, it was utterly a radical cultural moment. The Bible was so revolutionary and against all that came before it.
I was in the orphanage in New Orleans until I was almost a year old. I don’t think I ever got held by my mama, so that was completely and utterly traumatic. I think it was trauma from the first breath, and I think I’ve spent my whole life trying to heal from that trauma. So it shaped my brain.
It’s about time we all faced up to the truth. If we accept the radical homosexual agenda, be it in the military or in marriage or in other areas of our lives, we are utterly destroying the concept of family.
It is utterly wrong for a president – any president – to shutter the government of the United States when he can’t persuade the Congress and the American people to give him what he wants.
Once, and only once, I walked on stage and my mind went utterly blank! I had no idea why I was there! My fellow actors had to rescue me. I was very young and new to the business, so I’m glad it didn’t give me stage fright for the rest of my life!
I thought I knew what love was before giving birth to my baby, but whatever I had experienced in the past paled in comparison to the utterly unconditional love I immediately felt for the little bundle I now held in my arms.
The real test of friendship is: can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?
My favorite part of any playdate comes later when I get to carry my exhausted and sleeping daughter to the car. Is there anything more trusting than a sleeping child completely and utterly leaning into your body?
I think a good entrepreneur has a very clear grasp of what the goal is, an unwavering sense of the goal, an utterly agile approach of getting there.
Virtuality – connection without proximity – is a major attraction in both fandom and the Net. Nobody knows you’re a dog through the U.S. mail, either. Fans could be utterly different in their fanzine persona, which may be why both fandom and the Net were invented by individualistic Americans.
I myself have been on my own and utterly independent since I graduated. I haven’t belonged to any company or any system. It isn’t easy to live like this in Japan.
In real life, I am not a lonely person; I have lots of good friends and am active socially. But there are certain aspects of my life when I have felt very alone, utterly alone, and one of them is when I am performing on my own.
‘Hamlet’ is so modern; ‘Coriolanus’ is utterly alien to our consciousness, and that makes it difficult for us.
When you act a scene with Sidney Poitier, he listens intently to every word you say. You can feel your words hit him. He makes the scene utterly real.

In the Dobbsian view of America, the mainstream media isn’t evil because it’s liberal but because it’s lazy. And Washington is utterly corrupt, has sold out, Democrats and Republicans alike. And corporate America is an insatiable pig.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
Imagine the privilege the Lord has given us of sustaining His prophet, whose counsel will be untainted, unvarnished, unmotivated by any personal aspiration, and utterly true!
Russell M. Nelson

Money is human happiness in the abstract; he, then, who is no longer capable of enjoying human happiness in the concrete devotes himself utterly to money.
Short of baseball and my family, it was gaming. And gaming is a $20-million to $200-million multi-year effort. It’s an insane, stupid and utterly irresponsible act. But I did it.
One of the things that amazes me about Twitter is the way it utterly eradicates artificial barriers to communication. Things like status, geopolitics and so on keep people from talking to one another. Those go away in Twitter. You see exchanges that would never happen anywhere else.
When I first was exposed to Buddhism in the mid-1960s, I said it was so practical and utterly pragmatic. That’s what attracted me to Buddhism.
The judiciary wields enormous power but is utterly mysterious to most Americans. People know more about ‘American Idol’ judges than Supreme Court judges. Done right, social media is a high-octane tool to boost civic awareness.
I’m a self-confessed geek, and my whole concept of music at first was entirely electronic. In many ways, it turned out to be an advantage. I was so green, so utterly naive about the nature of classical music, that I did things that made me look totally, deliberately unorthodox.
Producing is a world of compromise and actors are utterly spoiled all the time.
My history teacher was utterly terrifying, but her lessons were very inspiring. She got me interested in people and stories, which then led me to acting.

All sensible Army people turned gas warfare down as being utterly insane since, in view of your superiority in the air, it would not be long before it would bring the most terrible catastrophe upon German cities, which were completely unprotected.
The Lord your God will raise up a Prophet like me from among your own people. Listen carefully to everything He tells you. Anyone who will not listen to that Prophet will be cut off from God’s people and utterly destroyed.
Facts, according to my ideas, are merely the elements of truths, and not the truths themselves; of all matters there are none so utterly useless by themselves as your mere matters of fact.
Being a mum can be utterly overwhelming.
I probably have fundamentally antisocial tendencies. I never took one extracurricular activity. I just failed utterly at that level. Part of me still rebels against that.
Like many alcoholics, I was a staggering woman in a chic apartment, sick and utterly disgusting.
There is no substitute for the comfort supplied by the utterly taken-for-granted relationship.
The ‘New York Honk,’ as it was called, was the most fashionable accent an American male could have at that time, namely, the spring of 1963. One achieved it by forcing all words out through the nostrils rather than the mouth. It was at once virile… and utterly affected. Nelson Rockefeller had a New York Honk.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a minute off in Israel. I’ve been completely and utterly devoted to what Hanadiv does. I’m not saying I’m a good guy for that. It’s just the way the dice have fallen.
I’m pro-union and utterly hope that Scotland stays within the United Kingdom.
