I initially thought ‘Lewis’ was a terrible idea. The character had very much been Morse’s work donkey and sounding board.

Michelle McCool
I initially wanted to work in the music industry more on the A&R side. While I was in school, I began working in the New Business department of an advertising firm, and very quickly I was responsible for roughly 70% of their business, so you could say I had a natural knack for the advertising world.

Sriti Jha
I’d set up the Khan Academy as a not-for-profit in 2008, but I was doing well in my job and initially thought I could fund the Academy myself.

Sal Khan
Many of the things we looked to solve initially were services like Internet and desk space. Then we got into the game of connecting people.

Initially, the television was seen as the devil incarnate by people that worked in the content industry. Now over time it turned out that that was one of the best things that ever could have happened to a content creator. I think the Internet is no different.

Jason Kilar
I think we make the movies, initially, with the one movie in mind. But we do love the characters, and so we kind of miss the characters when the movie is over. But I think what happens is, every now and then you realize there’s more to tell, or an idea comes up.

David Talbot
I enjoyed the drama of ‘One Tree Hill,’ and the opportunity to be one of the comedic aspects, initially.

Kelsey Chow
In terms of writing characters or stories, at least initially, there’s no difference between live-action and animation. A good story is a good story, whatever the medium.

I think for any small business that’s bootstrapped, the overwhelming challenge initially is getting to positive cash flow.

Andrew Buchan
Initially, I had started doing theater, where the actor has a direct relationship to the audience. So, moving into film and television disconnected me. When you do a film, you start to get the character, and then it disappears for a year before it’s released and you get feedback.

Initially it was a journey about one girl who wanted to go to the Paralympics but over the two years it has become something I was doing for everyone else. The reason I wanted to do it so badly was so I could stand here and show it can be done even if you have setbacks.

Kadeena Cox
Initially with The Butcher Boy, there was this kid growing up in this strange, weird environment that I remember from when I was a kid. And Patrick’s vision was so complete there.

Fabian Delph
Gandhi, brought out of his semirural setting and given a Western-style education, initially attempted to become more English than the English.

Max Keiser
I quit karate originally because it wasn’t something that I was initially passionate about.

Dash Mihok
My attraction to the Church of Satan… is the same thing that initially attracted me to punk rock. It was something that wasn’t very entirely popular, and it was sort of like the adversary to mainstream culture and beliefs.

Matt Skiba
I should have been out there having a wild time like all the other girls my age, but I wasn’t. I was going home every night to what was, initially, a very happy marriage.

All of my solos were improvised initially – I would go in and get my bearings and see what I came up with.

Synyster Gates
I think, initially, my rebellion, my rebellion of going to college when my dad would have liked me to stay home and work in the herbs, I think that it was a pretty mild rebellion in the sense that I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to go learn how to be a music teacher so that I can come home and do choir.’

Tara Westover
Initially, I did South Indian films because I needed the money; I had a huge student loan that I had to pay off. But I do feel that Marathi, English, and Hindi are what I’m more comfortable with.

Radhika Apte
Initially charged with assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest I was held for 36 hours, was beaten by cops and made to stand spread eagled against the cell wall for 12 hours with no food or water, until I collapsed. Everyone was strip searched on the way in.

John Blair
Even though you wouldn’t want to line a D-lineman and running back up across from each other to block, when you get help initially from the guard, and then the defensive tackle gets picked up by the running back, it’s not as bad as a lot of people would think versus if you’re just putting that matchup on paper.

Joe Thomas
Initially, I know that I handled it worse than she did and I think partly because I’ve always been… every bit of adversity I’ve faced up until the last year and a half is adversity I brought upon myself – or the opposing teams have given me.

Brett Favre
Initially, when I saw some of the things Vince was doing, I thought he was killing the business. There was the comedy stuff, the wedding on TV.

Evangeline Lilly
I didn’t know initially whether I’d like doing TV and whether I’d be able to work with other people. I’ve always done my own thing. I’ve never put myself into that situation, but it’s the most fun I’ve had in years.

Dolores O’Riordan
I was in two successive European finals early in my career, so initially, you think that sort of thing is going to happen regularly. Then suddenly, it dries up, and before you know it, 13 years have passed before you get your next chance.

Edwin van der Sar
Initially I even had to work in a textile firm for a meagre salary of Rs. 400 a month. Then things changed for me when I became an assistant to Shekhar Kapoor.

Satish Kaushik
So initially getting up on stage I was really nervous, I was like, ‘wow, I’m going to be standing there and all these people are going to be looking at me?’ But funnily enough it wasn’t too traumatic. It felt quite natural because I felt I looked good and I knew how to do the poses.

Dorian Yates
When you’re initially a heel, it’s easier to be a heel. I’d rather people hate me than try to get them to love me.

I had to continuously do films to shrug off the mini-screen image and it was a struggle. Initially, I was taken off from many films due to this and I dealt with it by signing every other film I got, even compromising on the quality.

Anoop Menon
When I did ‘Uyir,’ I initially feared to do it. It was a controversial role. But thanks to my friends, they motivated me and helped me come out with aplomb.

Sangeetha Krish
Initially, I’d written a normal love song. Later, I wrote Corona Kannala.’ I say cheesy because we used a lot of contemporary references.

Vignesh Shivan
Plays were really my last option. The reason I didn’t write plays initially was because I thought theatre was the worst of all the art forms.

Initially, I wanted to be an ice skater, but then when I was 13 I saw Bye Bye Birdie, and that was it – I wanted to be on Broadway.

Lara Pulver
I was a topper till class tenth and wanted to initially be a scientist.

Sonu Nigam
It wasn’t easy in the 1970s when I initially started on my mission – to take yoga to the world. Nobody knew what it was in Japan. When I met Bill Clinton for the first time, he asked me if it was a form of yogurt that you eat! But I kept my faith and never gave up on my quest.

Bikram Choudhury
Initially I struggled to find gluten-free products, but things have gradually improved, and now retailers like Holland & Barrett – with their new Free From range – are starting to cater for celiacs.

Sana Khan
False stories used to affect me initially. But now, I’ve come to understand that if false stories are created, they are also forgotten in the long run.

Kriti Sanon
‘Call Of Duty’ initially cut its teeth on World War II simulation stuff, and then we gradually advanced to the end of the Cold War, but you can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again. And I think that because ‘Call Of Duty’ cut its teeth on presenting ‘realism,’ in quotes… verisimilitude.

David S. Goyer
I don’t see myself as subversive. I just don’t necessarily buy what people tell me initially.

Colin Cowherd
In a way, the popularity of Corona came too fast for its own good, initially. We took a few steps back.

Carlos Alvarez
My batting took some time to develop – I was batting at No. 10 initially but my bowling took off.

Ravi Shastri
‘One Tree Hill’ was my first television experience, so naturally I was nervous initially. There is no rehearsal, you get your script a few days ahead, and you work. I was also the youngest actor, 13, on set at that time, but it was amazing to be able to ‘learn the ropes’ with such a supportive group of people.

Kelsey Chow
I don’t know what kept us together. Initially, both of us were hotheaded, so we would end up fighting a lot. But there was a lot of love and respect, too, I guess. I believe that’s the key to a successful marriage.

Soni Razdan
Sauber had a bad championship the year after they fired me and so if I had stayed it would have not been so good. Sometimes life does these things to you because it’s the right thing. You think it’s wrong, ‘initially, but life proves different.

Thomas Bangalter

David Rose
I went to medical school after having decided to do so somewhere between my junior and senior year at Harvard – very late. I initially wanted to be an intellectual historian.

I think I’ve gradually learned to become more of a frontman than I was initially. I mean, when I first started, especially playing with Alter Bridge, you know, I really considered myself more a guitar player who sang.

Myles Kennedy
‘Fahrenheit’ was a very difficult product to sell to publishers initially because no-one believed in storytelling or emotion.

David Cage
Our society is set up in a way that’s so against the natural state of nature, and the way it’s all initially intended to be. I kind of have to – not rebel, but peacefully rebel, in a sense – and do my part to protect it, regardless of the way that society is set up.

Cody Simpson
The hippocampus helps record both types of memories initially, and it helps retain them for the medium term. The hippocampus also helps us access old personal memories in long-term storage in other parts of the brain.

Sam Kean
‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ wound up becoming a love story even though it was not initially meant to be one.

David Lowery
I was afraid that I’d be typecast as the token firang. That happened initially. Now, I am acting in ‘Noises Off’ and ‘Menagerie,’ where all of us are playing British and American characters. That makes me feel better.

Jim Sarbh
In Gwalior, where I lived initially, I never thought much about fashion. I started understanding fashion only when I moved to Delhi.

Kartik Aaryan
Show me an actor who doesn’t want to be famous, and I’ll show you a liar. Later, you realise that there’s more to it than just the acquisition of fame, and money and girls. But that is what drives them and was what drove me, initially.

Kevin Bacon
I always wanted to be an actor and my parents were happy with my decision. But that happened later. They were apprehensive initially because I have an MBA degree and I used to work for American Express’ marketing team.

Jasmin Bhasin
I suffered initially because I think most of the people working in the industry only care about themselves. They are not interested in helping anyone as that may boomerang on them someday.

Ravi Kishan
I definitely don’t have a problem doing sex scenes, but I tend to like to do things that initially make me feel a bit nervous. I don’t think you can really grow at any job unless you do things that freak you out.

Riley Keough
Tony Blair adopted the accent of the audience he was speaking to, which worked very well initially, but then voters began to perceive him as phoney. The ‘man of the people’ act is the height of condescension.

Jacob Rees-Mogg
I still don’t think the world has seen the best Andre Ward. Initially, I just wanted to get in there and win.

Andre Ward
I grew up listening to Mary J. Blige’s music. When I initially met her, it was like, ‘Oh, wow. I’m meeting this woman whose music was the soundtrack of my college years.’

Dee Rees
The affinity towards suits was a functional thing for me early on because I was thrifting at secondhand shops, and it was also initially a way of grieving – my father had passed, and he used to wear suits all the time.

Initially my father was not very happy with the mimicry stuff, but when he saw that it was giving me direction he had no problems.

Suraj Venjaramood
This one, even though it called for San Francisco, I think they wanted to initially shoot part of the film up here, you know get the exteriors and then go back to L.A. We really fought to get it up here and I think Paramount was really pleased.

Philip Kaufman
Initially, when you start working out, it takes at least six months for the results to show.

Raashi Khanna
I initially moved to Bombay to work in the corporate space. After settling my family here in due course of time, I turned to acting which initially started off as a hobby that I wanted to pursue on the side and then became my profession to sustain my passion around five years back.

Anupriya Goenka
I’ve been doing a hybrid of investing and entrepreneurship, which I think initially I wasn’t set out to do. But I realized it fit my personality.

Sean Parker
No man at the beginning of a relationship tells the woman the truth. Initially, he just wants to have fun.

Sajid Khan
I initially wanted to be a teacher, and then I was going to become an engineer and build bridges and highways, but pretty soon I went into the business world. I never did get to be a teacher except in a different way.

Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.
Initially it used to bother me that I wasn’t working 365 days a year. But after a point I realised that the kind of work I want to do comes around rarely. And I would rather wait for it.

Shefali Shah
I’ve struggled a lot to get where I am. I initially got rejected by every producer. But no complaints. I enjoyed each and every moment of the struggle. My first break came in 1997 from Krishna Vamsi and then Puri Jagannadh, who is my closest friend. I owe everything I am to him. Our careers have evolved simultaneously.

Ravi Teja
Initially, I wanted to do films with A-list actors when I was struggling. I was hoping that I could also get that platform where I’m launched with Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan or Aamir Khan… and with them my career could also start, but it didn’t happen. And then came ‘Queen.’

Kangana Ran

I watch a movie or a T.V. show or whatever; if it’s good, I like to watch it more than once, and it’s always fun to catch something you didn’t see initially.

Judah Friedlander
Initially, I started writing music because I wanted to express my thoughts and get what was going on in my head out to the world.

I have been trying to get theatre releases for short films ever since I have been making them. I didn’t get any response from theatres initially.

Karthik Subbaraj
In order to become prosperous, a person must initially work very hard, so he or she has to sacrifice a lot of leisure time.

Dalai Lama
Even while in school – initially, Vineberg Allen in Mussourie, and later, a number of schools in Ludhiana – I aspired to achieve great things in life. Admittedly, I wasn’t quite sure about what these great things would be.

Sunil Mittal
Most of my major roles have been to play characters that the audience does not initially like or warm up to and then they grow to like in spite of that.

Robert Picardo
I think initially we wanted to use the first letter of the character’s name. We thought S was perfect.

Joe Shuster
I initially moved to Switzerland for work on an animated feature film, and have been here ever since.

John Howe
When I initially moved to the city, I had to stay in hotels for almost two years. I was fed up of that life, and it was then that I decided that I wanted a home in the city, so I shifted base permanently.

Rakul Preet Singh
Every situation, no matter how complex it initially looks, is exceedingly simple.

Eliyahu Goldratt
In my opinion, future space exploration will require us to inhabit the moon, initially, and later Mars. This is a humongous task for any one nation to carry out.

Rakesh Sharma
I have so far enjoyed my preparation with red ball cricket. The Duke ball swings a lot when you’re here in England, and initially, when I started playing here with India A, I realized that the swing will come a lot into play in these conditions.

Rishabh Pant
Initially when I was looking to enter football I was looking at clubs in Italy or France or Spain, a mid-table club where I could develop players and eventually sell them.

Andrea Radrizzani
I didn’t know who I was writing for initially. I assumed ‘Miss Peregrine’ was for adults, because I was an adult – but I didn’t know much about publishing back then.

Ransom Riggs
The E.U. initially decided to end the isolation of Turkish Cyprus, to balance the accession of Cyprus. But the E.U. has not carried through on its promise.

Ali Babacan
I was a ward of the state, initially, and then in the foster care system for quite some time, even though I did live part-time with my aunt in Brooklyn.

Rosie Perez
You need to live in a dome initially, but over time you could terraform Mars to look like Earth and eventually walk around outside without anything on… So it’s a fixer-upper of a planet.

Elon Musk
I’ll say initially acting was my first love, and that’s what I pursued. But then, so far as even my first day on a film set, and just watching how things were set up, I just said, ‘I think I want to be in charge.’ I am very much type-A. I am a bit of a control freak.

Chris Evans
Initially, I tried to become an aid worker and someone who could help people, but I was unsuccessful in convincing anyone that I could be of any use. So I went and became a war correspondent without any experience in war or in being a correspondent. So that was daring.

Samantha Power
I trained initially as a physical chemist, and then, after becoming interested in biology, I went to medical school and learned how to be a physician. So, I’m a physician scientist.

Francis Collins
Initially, I didn’t want to watch ‘The Dirty Picture.’

Waheeda Rehman
I enjoyed the theatrics and the physical demands of everything that went on in the ring. But I was, initially, a relatively shy kid. I think that’s probably what attracted me to hunting is that it was such a polar opposite of the other, and it was that opportunity for peace and quiet and to decompress.

Shawn Michaels
Initially it was very male dominated and there were hardly any women director but now women have entered everywhere and they are making their mark. I think its more to do with talent than differentiating on gender.
