J. B. Bickerstaff

Hence it is that the shape of something is especially meaningful.

Robert H. Schuller

Whitney Wolfe Herd

The corner of the ‘food media’ that I think is troublesome to me is the shows on TV that don’t really have a point or don’t have a lesson to be learned.

Before I turned 30, through a lot of hard work and support, I won many badminton titles. But after turning 30, Lin Dan should change that mindset and start in a new direction and do things that are more meaningful.

Cheap natural gas is a big stimulus to petrochemical production and a meaningful one for all U.S. manufacturing.

Because we spoke so loudly, opponents of reproductive health access demonized and smeared me and others on the public airwaves. These smears are obvious attempts to distract from meaningful policy discussions and to silence women’s voices regarding their own health care.

Survivorship comes with unspoken pressures, responsibilities and challenges. After all, what is the point of saving a life if the life isn’t a meaningful one?

I always ask the question: As more Africans are going online, are they finding content that is meaningful and relevant to them, or are they just consuming from everywhere else. As Africans, we have the capacity to generate our own content.
Just in a professional world, sometimes a phone call is definitely more meaningful than a text.
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
I’d prefer no practices and just Saturday, Sunday. Just qualify Saturday morning, race Saturday afternoon, and race again Sunday. Less laps of nonsense and more laps of meaningful business.

I have learned not to read reviews. Period. And I hate reviewers. All of them, or at least all but two or three. Life is much simpler ignoring reviews and the nasty people who write them. Critics should find meaningful work.
We have come a long way in terms of equality for every race, sex and creed in this nation. We still have a ways to go to before we are there for everyone, but we must find peaceful and meaningful solutions that offer positive outcomes for all.

Laura Jane Grace
I’ve taken a lot of risks as far as turning down money to do something I guess I thought was more meaningful. But I don’t know if that’s the best piece of advice, because I’ve also struggled with money, when I could have had a little more if I’d just taken the damn job.
One meaningful distinction between high and popular culture, is that there’s way more good popular culture – because its standards of quality are more forgiving, because sobriety isn’t its default mode, because there’s so damn much of it.
Actors do all kinds of roles, but once in a while, we also want to do a meaningful film.
I would like to recommend ‘After Putting On Makeup’ off our 1st LP, ‘The SHINee World.’ All of our albums are meaningful to us, but I have more attachment towards it because it is our first album.
It doesn’t matter if you have a D, or an I or an R after your name if you have a job – a J-O-B.

So we believe that these are the solutions that America is craving.
I hope to do meaningful and different types of roles.
The quicker we can transfer our online connections to offline ones, the more meaningful social media becomes; rather than just leaving them there and chatting to people. So I really believe in the transfer of online to offline and I think that can make a huge impact.
My job as a leader is to make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, and that they feel they’re having a meaningful impact and are contributing to the good of society. As a world, we’re doing a better job of that. My goal is for Google to lead, not follow that.

Once you understand that Goliath is much weaker than you think he is, and David has superior technology, then you say: why do we tell the story the way we do? It becomes, actually, a far more meaningful and important story in its retelling than in the kind of unsophisticated way we’ve done it for, I think, too long.
Meaningful innovation can be an important catalyst in encouraging resilience in seniors, keeping them independent and engaged.

For narrative games, and also for the sake of the medium, we have to treat performance that way, as actors.

Rather than being a prop in a film with big actors, I would love to do a meatier and more meaningful role in a film that does not feature a big actor.

Michael D. Higgins

Zombies, vampires, Frankenstein’s monster, robots, Wolfman – all of this stuff was really popular in the ’50s. Robots are the only one of those make-believe monsters that have become real. They are really in our lives in a meaningful way. That’s pretty fascinating to me.
Daniel H. Wilson
But they are not going to take on Big Oil because Big Oil is very generous at campaign time, and this is all about the elections. They want to pretend that they are doing something meaningful.

It took me a while to accept everything, but I am so grateful for the way my parents raised me. It’s my life, it’s unique, and I think it’s so meaningful to me as I get older.
There’s a lot of music out there that’s like, ‘I’m so mad! I’m sad! I’m into skulls and crossbones and the color black,’ and that’s just meaningless and shallow. So much of metal is about that and it’s hard to find metal that is substantial and meaningful in terms of its content.
How you choose to present yourself to the world shows what’s meaningful to you – and what you want others to think is meaningful to you.
It is better to have a meaningful life and make a difference than to merely have a long life.

When Pinterest works well, it helps you find things that are meaningful to you. We want to build a system that helps you do that.

Perhaps, my belief is along the old saying that ‘it is always better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.’
We didn’t grow up in any sort of meaningful representation in media apart from, you know, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee. But, of course, that was different still, because it always played to this narrative of the foreigner from the East.
I don’t know if any genuine, meaningful change could ever result from a song. It’s kind of like throwing peanuts at a gorilla.
I don’t relax. I can’t take vacations. I’m obsessive-compulsive, and I worry with every project that I’m going to fail. When it starts to go well, and I sense that something beautiful and important and meaningful is being created, it’s a fantastic feeling, and I find it very hard to stop.
Mary Ellen Mark
The most meaningful and spiritual prayers I have experienced contained many expressions of thanks and few, if any, requests.

Blogging is great, and I read blogs all day long. However, my goal is really to have a deep, meaningful discussion with people. For some reason, I’m able to accomplish this best via email.
In my relationship with God, I’ve learned that if I follow a ‘formula’ for how I spend my time with Him, then I’m just accomplishing a checklist of things I feel obligated to do to please Him. This makes my spiritual life more about doing what I need to do to fulfill an obligation than something meaningful.

Some of the things that have been the most meaningful to me have been experiences I’ve shared with my family.

I have lots of meaningful tattoos, also some others are for just passion.

Walter Dean Myers
There is that lovely feeling of one reader telling another, ‘You must read this.’ I’ve always wanted to write a book like that, with the sense that you are contributing to the discourse in middle America, a discourse that begins at a book club in a living room, but then spreads. That is meaningful to me.
It’s important to tell meaningful stories and to find new ways to communicate those stories to people.
When Sinead O’Connor tore up the picture of the Pope, you could hear a pin drop. I didn’t know it was coming, obviously, because at dress, she had held up a picture of Balkan orphans, which I thought was really meaningful and what she wanted to do.
