Australia’s a big part of my life.

Sean Murray
It’s a big part of what we do – we test our movies extensively. I’m always there myself. It’s sometimes difficult to sit through, especially if it’s a version of the movie that’s not working particularly well.

Bobby Farrelly
I still think there’s a big part of the population that has a lot of misinformation about sharks. But I think it’s beginning to change a little bit. As good information about sharks permeates popular culture, things may start to change.

Brian Skerry
A big part of filmmaking is gathering a group of people you can work with.

Lenny Abrahamson
It’s really impressive what those like Messner and Walter Bonatti have done – they are a big part of the history of alpinism.

Ueli Steck
From ‘Fonejacker,’ multiculturalism has been a big part of my repertoire.

Kayvan Novak
I don’t think I could have a genuine relationship with someone who didn’t love to travel and appreciate new foods. Traveling is a big part of my life, and I want to share that with the people close to me.

Candice Accola
Storybooks were always a big part of my imagination, and my childhood and adolescence.

Jesse Williams
I’m not interested in just being the hot girl. I’m really goofy, and I love laughing, and that’s such a big part of who I am.

Charlotte McKinney
As a big man, rebounding is a big part of the game and it’s also a huge part of our defense and being able to finish possessions off.

Nikola Vucevic
Music is a big part of my sleep routine. I listen to peaceful and calming music every night, and have my go-to playlists and albums I play at night.

Lexi Underwood
A big part of the job of being a showrunner is, in my way of thinking, being a good communicator because there’s really no other way to have hope for getting what you want, at the end of the day.

Vince Gilligan
My family plays a big part in my role as a dancer and my sister was my first trainer. She’s still my role model and inspiration until this day. She was my first trainer, she taught me my first steps.

Oti Mabuse
A guitar is so tactile, and when you’re playing bends – and bending notes is a big part of my style – there are so many notes within the note you’re bending from and the note you’re bending up to.

Joe Bonamassa
Movies are a big part of our Indian culture.

MS Dhoni
I was a big fan of Kurt Angle when I was growing up. Actually, his book is a big part of the reason that I work out so hard.

I’m not really interested in rappers who talk about rap. I don’t talk about it, and I don’t like listening to other people talk about it. So I stick to the things that I know. You know, things like cars, ultimate fighting. I have a lot of songs about cars, because they’re a big part of my lifestyle.

Paul Wall
The one thing about Essex is that there’s a lot of people there that are into their soul music. And I’m talking ’80s and ’70s soul music, that was a big part of my childhood, there was Al Green, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder, people like that.

Jonas Blue
A big part of my love and passion for making music is playing it live.

Sarah McLachlan
‘Ten’ by Pearl Jam is still by far one of my favorite albums and is a big part of what inspired me to learn guitar.

Mark Salling
I want people to know that it’s all right to come back to New Orleans. You can drink the water. The only way that the city can come back is if you come back. Tourism is a big part of it.

Kenny Smith
There’s so much fear involved in trying to do something you don’t know how to do that drugs and alcohol can become a big part of your life if you have an addictive personality or are very unsure, which most songwriters are.

Barry Mann
Music is where I’m still. It’s where I’m focused. It’s such a joy. I’d like to make it a big part of my life.

Sue Perkins
Experience I think is a big part of getting better and being a better team and going to the playoffs and toward the championship for sure.

Danilo Gallinari
I’m not strictly vegetarian, but meat doesn’t play a big part in my diet.

Katie Holmes
A big part of our agenda is to position the United States for long-term sustainable growth and health, and those jobs come from the private sector.

Valerie Jarrett
My uncle who helped in a big part of raising me from when I was young, had moved from California, and would just tell me these legendary stories of these motorcycle clubs that he was around and that he used to ride with.

Theo Rossi
There’s a very big part of me that just wants to take all of comics history and toss it on the bonfire. I’d sort of like to get on to the future.

Scott McCloud
It’s not enough for Hollywood to make a bunch of gay movies. That’s obviously a big part of the equation, but then gay people have to show up for those movies.

Billy Eichner
Bollywood music is definitely a big part of Indian music and can be a great way to introduce people to the sound. But I hope to continue to incorporate other types of Indian music into my work.

A. R. Rahman
It’s good to have different ways to break opponents down, and speed is a big part of my game.

Jesus Navas
Being able to step away from your work is big. Not even the actual work of sitting down and looking at game tape, but actually putting your job aside and focusing on other things. That’s a big part of being successful in this league.

Frank Vogel
Forgiveness is a big part of – especially post-civil rights movement – is a big part of African-American Christianity, and I wasn’t raised within the Christian church; I wasn’t raised within any church.

Ta-Nehisi Coates
My earliest memories as a child are listening to Beatles records, and they are a big part of how I’ve learned to write pop songs.

Christina Perri
Boredom or being sick of what you’ve done before is a big part of being in a band.

Alex Kapranos
Ray Charles has always been a big part of my life.

Darius Rucker
People come up to me and pay their respects by telling me how I was a big part of their childhood. I do not take that for granted, not for one second.

Sean Waltman
My family has loved Minnesota and that was one of the big reasons we decided to come back. For me, family decisions were a big part to coming back to the Twins.

Jim Thome
A big part of my upbringing was being with an instrument and kind of figuring myself out through music. So I feel a strong desire in any way that I can to help do that for other kids.

Andy Grammer
I swam very competitively till I was 15, then I swam for fun until I was 18. But athletics remain a very big part of my life. I try to keep that as much in balance with work as I can.

Teddy Sears
I think growth is a big part of everything, it think even growth for Brooklyn, growth for Downtown Brooklyn is good.

I was born in Cairns, Queensland. Then my parents and I moved to Sydney. We moved to New Wales. We moved around Australia. I was just really close to my parents, and actually, we moved around a lot when I was very young. I think it played a big part in making me the shy teenager that I was.

Catriona Gray
For me, a big part of writing psychological thrillers is choosing crimes committed for motives which would only apply to a particular person in a particular situation; a unique, one-off motive that is born out of someone’s particular range of psychological afflictions.

Sophie Hannah
Obviously fashion is a big part of what I love, a big passion of mine.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander
I hated golf when we first started, but a big part of the training process was falling in love with this sport, so I went on tour with the UCLA Team.

Shia LaBeouf
The mental aspect of being a goalkeeper is very important so you have to go into the game with full concentration and confidence. That is a big part of your game and the Premier League is the most demanding league for any goalkeeper.

Simon Mignolet
None of us got to where we are alone. Whether the assistance we received was obvious or subtle, acknowledging someone’s help is a big part of understanding the importance of saying thank you.

Harvey Mackay
To say, ‘I don’t worry about perception,’ you better worry about perception because it’s a big part of making it through some very difficult times.

Troy Aikman
My parents raised me to not ever look at race or color, so it doesn’t have a big part in my self-identity.

Robert Griffin III
It’s always special to return to Real Madrid because I’ve always considered it as being home. It’s where I grew up, learned my trade, and the club has played a big part in who I am today.

Julen Lopetegui
I come from music videos and commercials, where style is a big part of the whole world. I’ve always tried to add that to whatever I’m doing.

Ruben Fleischer
Noise is the number one problem in modern offices. A big part of addressing this issue is making sure unwanted sound from adjacent spaces doesn’t intrude or interfere.

Julian Treasure
My mom was an amazing singer and music was a big part of my life, so I grew up listening to Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis, Henry Mancini; I used to watch ‘The Andy Williams Show’ on TV. I was very musical, so I was watching stuff that most kids my age wouldn’t be interested in.

Gloria Estefan
I was joking the other day about how my real life feels like a TV show, and my TV life feels real – because, to be on Thursday nights on NBC, which is what I grew up with, has been such a big part of inspiring me. To be part of that tradition is really completely surreal, and I’m so grateful.

Whitney Cummings
Film has played such a big part in my life, in my impressions of the United States.

Famke Janssen
I love dance; that’s a big part of my life – like, ballet specifically.

Kerris Dorsey
I think, as e-commerce grows as a category, most e-commerce companies are focused on women because they are the decision makers and the consumers. When you think of e-commerce, and fashion is a big part of that, women are much more in tune with what other women are looking for online.

Brian Lee
It’s pretty clear that machine learning is going to a big part of science and engineering.

Jeff Dean
I have the most eclectic audience – I’ve got gay, I’ve got straight, black, white, rich, poor, young, old, in 45 countries. And they don’t all come because I’m the Sinatra kid, though that’s a big part of it. My biggest successes have come from pop songs that I write myself.

Michael Buble
My personal life is a big part of who my character is.

Sonya Deville
I can’t seem to help writing love stories. I definitely crave romance. When I was young, I craved romance in books, but I didn’t want to read just romance – love plays such a big part in our lives, it shouldn’t be cut out and restricted to its own fiction.

Rainbow Rowell
That is an important part of my success. Another big part of my success is that I hated not to finish a race.

Alain Prost
I didn’t really adapt to Scottish football well, but I enjoyed my time there. The physical nature and the pace of the game was a big thing, and many of the teams defended really deep against Celtic so there was not so much space to run in behind. That’s a big part of my game, so that was one thing as well.

Teemu Pukki
I’m very heavily involved in the editorial post-production process, and the camera – it’s just such a big part of my storytelling language. I like creating the tension; I like creating the emotion through the movement of my camera, or the lack of movement through my camera, depending on what fits the scene best.

James Wan
Social media has become a big part of our lives and I try to manage it well but it’s the criticism that motivates me and keeps me going.

Shreyas Iyer
I had a very simple life growing up in the farm country outside of Perugia, and biscotti and warm milk with a tiny bit of coffee were a big part of my morning ritual before walking to school.

Brunello Cucinelli
Mancini was a big part of my life. I sang a lot of his music, and he became a good buddy.

Johnny Mathis
And as a Member of this body, I believe firmly that States do have rights, and I believe that local communities have rights, and they have made decisions to allow these businesses to prosper as they are a big part of their economy.

Jon Porter
As a wrestler in the world, traveling is a big part of it.

Marty Scurll
I hope I retain the appetite to find new things to stimulate me, whether that’s travel or finding new interests. I’ll always go out and enjoy nature and the countryside, because it’s a big part of my life.

Nigel Pearson
God’s given me this talent and ability and this platform. The worst thing to do is to blow that off and not give the right people credit. He deserves all the credit. My faith has been a big part of growing up into who I am and who I’m trying to become.

Mike Fisher
Digital shows have played a big part in empowering female artists. I’m very lucky to be a part of such projects.

Dia Mirza
My parents are divorced, and seeing that was really painful for me. Really painful for me. But that’s also a big part of why I’m intrigued by the dynamics between people – because I was close to something that fell apart.

The only thing in life that really gives me any peace is just being lost in the process of creating something, whether it’s the film or painting and drawing, which has been a big part of my life, for a long time.

Ellar Coltrane
Music is a very big part of my preparation as an actor.

Hailee Steinfeld
The core to what makes Fincher really interesting – all the technique and all that, that is not in the center even if it’s a big big part – what is in the center is the characters, and he really is interested in that.

Stellan Skarsgard
A big part of what I wanted to do with this character was go from when I was a boy and try and develop into a man, really try and play him as a man who is on this search, on a journey of personal, spiritual, political, social discovery.

Orlando Bloom
Such a big part of acting is getting your face out there and getting recognized.

Shannon Purser
Marvin Gaye was the ultimate ladies’ man and a big part of that was the way he dressed. If you’re having trouble getting ladies, step your suit game up and see the difference. Walk into a bar in a tailored suit and I guarantee every girl will check you out.

Mayer Hawthorne
Music was always a big part of my family. Only a few of us had the talent – or the courage – to walk out on a stage.

Patty Loveless
Such a big part of this business is rejection. Each time that you get rejected, a big part of it is just staying positive – even if you don’t get the role, it’s still giving you practice. I love being able to take direction and talk with the casting directors in the room.

Danielle Campbell
I have to say it’s been tough to leave the Ferrari family, which has been a big part of my career.

Michael Schumacher
I think we carry around the idea of being a Kid in the Hall as part of our identity. It’s a big part of how we see ourselves now.

Dave Foley
Music’s always been a big part of my life. Because of my father, I was always surrounded by music and musicians, and in school, I was in the chorus, and I played various instruments.

Timothy B. Schmit
I have three kids, so children’s literature is a big part of my life.

Tracy K. Smith
The most important thing to me with any politician is that they don’t start wars, but education is a big part of that, too, because educated people are less likely to do stupid, violent things.

I wound up through a wild set of circumstances getting into coaching. I went in and volunteered with Don Coryell, who was a big part of my past, great coach. A lot of people say he was one of the greatest coaches ever. He was very good in high school, college and pro. Another guy on that staff was named John Madden.

Joe Gibbs
Auto racing has been a big part of my life since I was very young. When the car feels right, it’s like, ‘We’ve got a big machine.’

Scott Borchetta
My faith plays a big part in who I am: a Christian guy playing pop-rock music. I’m in a pop-rock band, not a Christian band.

Nick Jonas
I’ve been interested in dreams myself for a long time, and it’s a big part of the Indian tradition, especially where I was brought up in Calcutta in my family, which is quite traditional.

Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
I think certainly that looking for love is a big part of the show, but I think that if – there’s one thing that is different about ‘Sex and the City’ and the message that I think has resonated with viewers, especially women. It’s that you don’t need to get married. You don’t really need that love to be fulfilled.

Darren Star
It was two and a half years that I was down in Ohio Valley Wrestling. It’s been a big part of my life now in the sense that I love that period of my life so much. It was like my college years.

Maria Kanellis
It’s so important for people to have a space that they love, and that you wake up happy every morning in your house. A big part of that is what you have for your furniture, your art, your decor.

Drew Scott
Contrary to what people believe, yes, basketball has been a big part of my life. But on the other hand, it’s also been a small part.

Reggie Miller
Once I started realizing I could lose people at the line of scrimmage, and essentially run a route on air. I figured that that was the way to go. So I just put a lot into that, and obviously I made it a big part of who I am as a football player.

Davante Adams
Music is a big part of my life.

Liz Cambage
When I have downtime, music is a big part of my life. Not so much singing, but I play the guitar.

KJ Apa
With Malaysian and Indian heritage, food is a big part of our culture and I am always cooking and always entertaining.

Guy Sebastian
What I’ve learned is I want to enjoy my life, and food is a big part of it.

Gwyneth Paltrow
Ambiguity is a big part of this post-truth world we’re living in.

Paul G. Tremblay
Blues is a big part of rock and roll. The best rock and roll got its birth in the blues. You hear it in Little Richard and Chuck Berry.

Angus Young
I feel like with me being a big part of any offense, then the numbers are going to come.

Terrell Owens
I really liked punk music and experimental music that my brother was taking me to go see in the city, when I was probably, like, 13 years old. I was seeing a lot of teenagers making ‘weird’ music, and I think that was probably a big part of the reason that I actually started to play myself.

Frankie Cosmos
Having drive is a big part of success, along with integrity. You need to have a clear vision of what you want and take the steps to achieve it, even if that sometimes means playing gigs in tiny clubs.

Vonda Shepard
A big piece of my heart is definitely in Michigan and will always be in Michigan. Growing up there is definitely a big part of who I am as a person.

I listen to so much music every day, so that’s such a big part of my life. To be able to pursue that and put out my own stuff is definitely a goal. I don’t want to put something out that I’m not proud of because I think it’s so easy to say, ‘I’m an actress/musician.’

Kerris Dorsey
I think that’s a big part of what I love about the boys in the band, too, and what I find attractive in men in general is, really, the ability to not take everything so seriously because it is rock n’ roll after all; it’s a freakin’ circus. We’re not accountants here.

Lzzy Hale
Boston is a very proud franchise. The NBA misses them when they are not in the mix. They, along with teams like the Knicks and 76ers are a big part of the heart, soul and history of the league.

Doug Collins
You can’t tap somebody in the helmet and say, ‘Go be physical.’ If you’re not physical, you can’t play physical, and that’s a big part of what we believe in.

Bret Bielema
I think being genuine, and being authentic, is a big part of leadership.

Brian Flores
I got into writing because books and stories were always a big part of my life. I loved listening to them and then reading them, and I loved making them up.

Nick Earls
My sister is a big part of my actual style. Our style is not similar whatsoever, but she helped me find myself and find what I really liked.

Sofia Richie
For goal-scorers and centre-forwards, confidence does play a big part.

Roy Hodgson
I think music will always be a big part of my life. I can’t go five minutes without singing, sometimes unconsciously. And people stare at me, and I’m wondering why they’re staring, and then I’m realizing that I’m belting out a tune.

Justin Timberlake
My grandfather played a big part in raising me, and he taught me how to be a gentleman. Since he first told me those types of things when I was 13 years old, I’ve taken all those types of lessons from him to heart. I’d like to keep that with me.

Tyler Shaw
I am obsessed with rap music – it’s such a big part of my life.

Randall Park
I was really only around country music on the radio, and I think because I grew up so close to Atlanta, and R&B was such a big part of that culture, by proximity I think a lot of that music influenced me without knowing it.

Sam Hunt
Childhood bullying was a big part of my life.

Michael Steger
I grew up in Teesside and it is really important to keep your regional accent because it is a big part of who you are.

Steph McGovern
Seeing other people is incredibly engaging, and that’s one of the drivers that made us partner with Facebook – social communication. Not social newsfeeds, but actual face-to-face, seeing multiple avatars in a play experience, that’s going to be a very big part of the future in VR.

Brendan Iribe
I was a huge boxing fan, but it’s a sport where the guys punch each other in the head. I thought maybe I shouldn’t be a fan of that anymore. Maybe I shouldn’t allow myself to cheer a sport where the head injuries are a big part of it.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Racism was a big part of our community. I’m not going to revisit history, and I’m not going to call out those communities, but the communities we grew up around, we were treated like second- or third-class citizens.

Kelvin Sampson
International soccer has been a big part of my love for the sport. I love the Men’s National Team. I can say that they’re my favorite sports team.

Drew Carey
I wouldn’t say that ‘The Fabric of the Cosmos’ is a book on cosmology. Cosmology certainly plays a big part, but the major theme is our ever-evolving understanding of space and time, and what it all means for our sense of reality.

Brian Greene
A big part of why I wanted to go to college is to meet people and make friends.

Miranda Cosgrove
Food is a big part of my life.

Blake Griffin
During ‘Idol,’ I wasn’t expecting anything. I just wanted to survive the competition, but my album and my music are a big part of who I am. Hopefully it translates well and I keep growing as an artist.

Jessica Sanchez
I think I feel fortunate to have been very well educated in terms of strength and training while I was at school at Stanford, and I think our strength coaches here on the Colts do a great job. A big part of being able to withstand hits is making sure that you’ve got a good base.

Andrew Luck
‘Goosebumps,’ actually, was a very big part of my childhood, growing up, and it inspired me to get into horror and all that good stuff.

Dylan Minnette
The cast clubs were a big part of it, too. I found I wasn’t getting that instant feedback I was used to with a forged blade. The sweet spot is a shade bigger, and when I didn’t hit the ball dead center, I didn’t know it, because it still felt great.

Payne Stewart
Suddenly, Dallas has become a big part of my life, and now I feel like I’m part of the fabric of the community here.

Jeremy Scott
Clothes are a big part of a free society, I think, and what you wear is so indicative of the political climate you’re living in.

Nazanin Boniadi
I’m always pursuing knowledge; I’m a seeker of spiritual equilibrium – and music is a big part of that.

Steve Vai
Judaism is a big part of my background, obviously, and my reality.

Moshe Kasher
Nature is a big part of my weekend. Whenever possible, I take Friday and Monday off and spend four days outdoors. We should remind ourselves that there was something here before us, a force more powerful than us.

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa
Sports were a big part of my life. I was the captain of the basketball team in high school, and captain of the basketball team at Princeton.

John W. Rogers, Jr.
My novels are about a generation of Americans who lived between 1940 and 2000, who resisted the postwar political and cultural forces by choosing a wandering life of impoverishment and wonder. Inevitably, race and economics are a big part of their stories. Childhood, childishness, and children are never far.

Fanny Howe
As a journalist, a big part of what you do is search for drama and conflict. And a lot of the backstory with ‘Billions’ is grounded in my journalistic background.

Andrew Ross Sorkin
I played some ping pong with the guys on the T’Wolves team. I might have been the champ on that team, too. But ping pong is a big part of my life. I grew up playing it against my brother and my father when I was young. They used to kick my behind for a long time, so I got very good at it.

Christian Laettner
In Japan, animation is a big part of your media diet. I moved out to Los Angeles at 9, and when I got homesick, I would watch anime.

Hiro Murai
Froch is like a train who just comes forward but Groves will move about, fake and feign and his good footwork is a big part of his game.

Chris Eubank Jr.
Communicating and being loud is a big part of my game.

Owen Farrell
The bad press started to play a big part in how people perceived me, and I started playing on that too, which was a big mistake.

Sergei Polunin
I believe the fast track to atheism is reading the Bible. I’ve read it three times all the way through. It’s a big part of our culture, a big part of our history. I don’t just read things I agree with.

Penn Jillette
I loved basketball and grew up with the Lakers and Magic Johnson. That was a big part of me.

Justin Lin
I just like observing people – it’s something I’ve done ever since I was a kid, and I got really good at it. That’s a big part of why I became a comedian. My audience is filled with every kind of person you can imagine, and I love that.

Ellen DeGeneres
After 37 years in the Navy, there were no further jobs in uniform, and it was my time to transition. But I wanted to continue to mentor and educate young people, which is, of course, a big part of being a senior officer in the military.

James G. Stavridis
I loved ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.’ It was such a big part of my childhood.

Megan Fox
People say, ‘Well, why don’t you talk about being vegetarian?’ And I’m like, ‘People will find out.’ The people who are interested in what I do and why I do it, being a vegetarian is a big part of that.

Devin Townsend
I’m drawn to ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances, which is a big part of the human condition.

Sissy Spacek
Mentality is a big part of every game, when you take the initiative and when you drop.

Per Mertesacker
Foster care was a big part of my life.

Barry Keoghan
Music and opera are a big part of my life.

Ailyn Perez
Lou Holtz, I was also a huge fan of. He was really funny. I think that’s a big part of why I was attracted to the Razorbacks: I thought Lou Holtz was really funny. He is really funny. Too bad he’s a born-again, or whatever.

Matt Besser
I have made ‘start, grow and stay’ a big part of my administration.

Ed Lee
It’s one thing to turn up and jump around stage and give people a good time – that’s obviously a big part of this – but I’ll always get deeper than that as an artist.

A big part of the success of Microsoft was that every year, the chips our software ran on got faster and cheaper. They doubled in capability every 18 months under Moore’s law.

Paul Allen
Judaism is not a dogmatic religion but one which loves debate, in which scholarship has played a big part. Scholars never agree about anything.

Theodore Zeldin
I sing to my wife; it helps me. She was my muse. I’ve written so many songs about her, to her, with references to her, and still do. She’s a big part of my life. We were together for 33 years. It actually does me good – she’s with me all that time in that way.

Ian McLagan
It makes no sense to me at all to give away music for free. The very fact that we have to do that cheapens the music. And there’s a huge effect to that of music not playing such a big part in peoples’ lives anymore.

Paul Young
Football has always been a big part of my life. Almost from the day I was born, playing and coaching football were all I really ever wanted to do.

Bobby Bowden
I was pretty young when my father was prime minister, so it wasn’t really a big part of my life. My folks were away a lot, meeting foreign dignitaries and that sort of thing, but it never struck me as odd. If anything it allowed me to get into all sorts of mischief.

Julian McMahon
We’ve always been involved with America – I have a son who lives there and it’s a big part of my life.

Colin Firth
When I listen to music – I don’t particularly do it for fun all that much. It’s not a big part of my life, and I’m not really on top of what’s happening in the world of music in the way I was when I was a teenager.

John Hodgman
The big part of coffee production in many rural areas is in the hands of women. It’s women who work in the fields. They harvest the coffee. They wash the coffee. They take the coffee to the market. But when the coffee gets to the market, it’s the man who cashes in the money for the crop.

Arancha Gonzalez
Sometimes we all gain this elitist status mentally that inhibits us from being the kid that got you there in the first place, and I never want to inhibit that youthful demeanor. I think it’s a very big part of success.

Joe Maddon
That’s a big part of the process: making the right choice from the beginning. Not getting distracted by shiny things.

Marti Noxon
Before broadcasting for 50-some years, I did TV, played 10 years in the big leagues, won a world championship – and played a big part in that, too, letting the Cardinals inject me with hepatitis. Takes a big man to do that.

Bob Uecker
Matt McGinn and Taylor Phillips played a big part in getting me where I am.

Kane Brown
I didn’t get a lot of attention from my dad when I was young. That’s a big part of it for girls. Because your dad is the first love of your life. If he doesn’t put you on his lap and give you a pet, you do end up not really liking yourself that much.

Dolores O’Riordan
The star-jump technique – that is a big part of being a handball goalkeeper, and I brought that move into football. It is a very effective way of saving a chance.

Peter Schmeichel
A huge part of my identity is being a woman, and that’s really important for me, and that’s a big part of my self-expression, so I think it’s really interesting sort of exploring what it means if someone doesn’t have that.

Angourie Rice
It’s very important that we don’t make the same mistakes twice. That’s a big part of improvement.

Kirby Smart
A big part of my game is movement. The players that I play with understand that and took the time to see where I like to run, and it’s worked out.

Bradley Wright-Phillips
I’ve enjoyed success and I feel like I’ve been a big part of success – not just involved in winning trophies but involved heavily.

Gary Cahill
I was raised really religious, and it’s a big part of my life. No matter what I go through, my faith will always be there.

Lauren Alaina
Saturday night at my house, I often trot out classic movies and force the urchins to watch them. There is much wailing and gnashing of teeth, but I think it’s important to teach kids about American culture, and films are certainly a big part of it.

Bill O’Reilly
A lot of what I do as a showrunner is anxiety control. People get nervous when they don’t know what’s going on, so a big part of my job is making sure everyone has all of the information all of the time.

Glen Mazzara
Entertainment is a big part of MMA and it is unique.

Jake Hager
Obviously, a big part of the American Revolution was there would be no Church of England the way there was in England. There was a specific attempt not to have an established church.

Jeffrey Toobin
What Chris Webber and the Fab Five – Jalen, Juwan, Ray, Jimmy and those guys – they created a culture, and Michigan was a beneficiary of that. Chris Webber was a big part of it.

Charles Woodson
I think social media has taken over for our generation. It’s a big part of our lives, and it’s kind of sad.

Kendall Jenner
A big part of teaching is being emphatic. Maybe I’m right or wrong, but part of my approach was that when I said something, the kids understood exactly what I meant and what I wanted.

Bobby Knight
A big part of fixing AOL is getting AOL to believe in itself.

Tim Armstrong
A big part of life is realizing what you’re good at.

Alyssa Milano
The thing is, horror is a big part of ‘Sherlock Holmes.’ Doyle also wrote a lot of great horror stories, so there’s a lot more horror in ‘Holmes’ that people possibly think of. There’s a lot of curses and mysticism and real scares.

Mark Gatiss
Photography is a big part of my life: taking photographs, being around photographers.

Jamie Hince
I can’t imagine writing something that didn’t address Jewish themes and questions. It’s such a big part of my life, a lot of the way in which I experience the world.

Molly Antopol
I was called to audition for a play when I was very young, following which I continued to act as well as write and direct. When I moved to Delhi and joined Hindu College, theatre became a very big part of my life.

Imtiaz Ali
For me, seed investing isn’t just a good return area but a big part of how we network in Silicon Valley. A lot of our best deals have come from being active in the seed stage.

Joe Lonsdale
It is important that every bride feels comfortable in her chosen dress, and fabric choice has a big part to play in this.

Emilia Wickstead
Confidence and ambition are the most attractive qualities to me, and knowing what you want and being upfront about it is a big part of that.

Eva Marie
I need insulin to stay alive. It’s just therapy to keep going. What I can do is make sure that I keep my blood sugar down to a reasonable level. I can exercise, and I can eat properly. And insulin plays a very big part in that.

Mary Tyler Moore
It’s so crazy: my mom and dad divorced when I was 11, and my fondest memories are in the Philippines and being raised by my mom. It’s such a big part of my life.

Jo Koy
Waiting is a big part of life. We don’t like to admit that, especially our generation; we don’t like to wait on stuff. We want stuff immediately.

Trip Lee
I know I’m not supposed to talk about God and stuff, but my spiritual life is very strong, and I really feel that a big part of whatever success I’m having is due to that as well.

Phyllis Smith
The Montreal Canadiens have been a big part of my family.

Martin Brodeur
I’m never going to criticize any umpires or anything, because they’re a big part of the game.

Dave Martinez
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.

Evan Ross
In a way, the manager plays as big part, but you, as a player, are on the pitch. He cannot make you run if you don’t want to; he cannot make you make the right decision in the heat of the moment.

Petr Cech
I was well aware of my limitations as a football player and knew that I needed every edge I could possibly get in order to compete. A big part of that was to be as precise as I could and make as few mistakes as possible because I figured that was the only way I could survive.

Paul DePodesta
All the pictures I do are contemporary. I’ve sort of discovered I haven’t really been into science fiction or period pictures. And so, in that vein, psychological thrillers play a big part.

Michael Douglas
Masculinity comes from your look, all the way down to your attitude. It’s a big part of being a tennis player. Even though tennis is a fairly friendly sport, intimidation is still a big part of it.

Milos Raonic
I was a wrestler in high school, and that was a pretty big part of my life.

Ethan Slater
Any defensive coordinator is worried about two things: a running quarterback and a deep ball. You know, don’t get beat deep and don’t let the quarterback run, because a big part of your defense can’t account for the quarterback as a runner, so he gets a free run.

John Madden
It’s freeing to be able to consistently make creative decisions and ask creative questions of the team without feeling like, ‘Does this make me vulnerable to getting canned?’ That’s a big part of being in a studio – they can always fire you.

Karyn Kusama
Being Jewish is a big part of my artistic sensibility and my humor… I think it gives me a certain take on the world on a literary level.
