Anthony Joshua
To the extent that ’60s guys own things, yes… but I don’t have the publishing, just like most ’60s guys, and that was an error, you know… part ownership in publishing was the kind of era that started a little bit later, when real businessmen started to manage artists.

Our economic future rests on the extent to which all students, especially those who represent America’s growing majority, have access to rigorous, college-preparatory classes and excellent teachers.

Chaka Fattah
What most surprises me about Brazil is the extent of the difficulties that we create for ourselves. We create a lot of legislation to control the Brazilian state itself, that this ends up meaning that things don’t go with the speed any head of government would like.

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva
Looking back, when I was Gollum, I suppose I did break the mold to a certain extent. I’m proud, and very thrilled, to be a part of that.

Andy Serkis
The rocks, to a great extent, look swept clean. It’s a much cleaner surface than what we had a right to hope for.

Steven Squyres
If we intensify our efforts we can have a cloned baby within a year or two, but I don’t know whether we can intensify our efforts to that extent. We’re not really under pressure to deliver a cloned baby to this world. What we are under pressure to do is to deliver a cloned baby that is a healthy one.

Panayiotis Zavos
Basic mobile phones can circumvent lack of broadband access, but only to a certain extent.

Tae Yoo
I was raised in Arizona, and I went to public school, and the extent of my knowledge of the civil-rights movement was the story of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. I wonder how much my generation knows.

Emma Stone
We try to… we are, I suppose to a certain extent all affected and erm, that is both funny and sad I think.

Tony Hancock
We used to speak familiarly of an agent, now do more, who was accustomed to manufacture evidence, and to invent facts in his cases, or at least to alter the aspects of facts to such an extent that they might fairly be viewed as new.

George Combe
People who are highly motivated, when it comes to dogs, they will go to any extent. Sometimes I feel that dogs play a more important role in their lives, more than other humans do.

Jaideep Ahlawat
I shall suggest, on the contrary, that all communication relies, to a noticeable extent on evoking knowledge that we cannot tell, and that all our knowledge of mental processes, like feelings or conscious intellectual activities, is based on a knowledge which we cannot tell.

Michael Polanyi
What I learned is that acting is to a large extent about trying to stave off self-doubt long enough to be natural and real onstage.

Daniel Radcliffe
When we talk about ‘Firepower,’ we’re talking about the fire and power of heavy metal to prevail and endure difficulties. ‘Children of the Sun,’ is, to some extent, about climate change and the ecosystem… We want to deliver a message to the people without being too much of a teacher.

Rob Halford
I know that from the days of Watergate… the notion of two sources on a story has become the popular dogma about how you confirm something. And there is a lot of truth to that, but there are all kinds of ways to check to the extent that you can, a story that you get.

Howard Fineman
The extent of your consciousness is limited only by your ability to love and to embrace with your love the space around you, and all it contains.

Napoleon Bonaparte
We keep thinking that the human is evolving. No, the human has evolved to its extent. What’s happening now is the organization of humans: just like cells organize to form people, people are organizing to form humanity.

Bruce Lipton
Art does, to some extent, follow economics.

James Turrell
In order to make further progress, particularly in the field of cosmic rays, it will be necessary to apply all our resources and apparatus simultaneously and side-by-side; an effort which has not yet been made, or at least, only to a limited extent.

Victor Francis Hess
We are the most powerful nation in the world, but we’re not the only nation in the world. We are not the only people in the world. We are an important people, the wealthiest, the most powerful and, to a great extent, generous. But we are part of the world.

Studs Terkel
From the Olympian heights of an executive suite, in an atmosphere where your success is judged by the extent to which you can maximise profits, the overwhelming tendency must be to see people as units of production, as indices in your accountants’ books.

Jimmy Reid
I think Picasso was someone who took art’s powers of consuming, its powers of much-ness and multiplicity, and used that to his fullest extent. That’s something that was permitted to men, obviously, much more than women, but was also permitted in the past much more often than now.

Molly Crabapple
Doing the box set is one of those things where you get to rewrite your own history to some extent. We could take out some of the songs that we felt weren’t as strong as some of the others, so you look better.

David Byrne
What interests me is the surprising enormous extent to which most people accept the fate that’s been given to them, and find some dignity.

Kazuo Ishiguro
We must remember, too, that the Russian population of the Caucasus are to a large extent Muslims, and the areas such as Georgia which have aspirations of their own.

Aly Khan
Indeed, the study of universities and the great men and women who have attended them leads me to think that the best of these schools are characterized not so much by what they teach and how they teach it but by the extent they provide opportunities and encouragement for students to teach themselves.

Paul Johnson
Bush does not want to go down in history as the president who lost in Iraq. His strategy to the extent he has one is to hang tough and let whoever succeeds him take the fall.

Eleanor Clift
That was the big thing when I was growing up, singing on the radio. The extent of my dream was to sing on the radio station in Memphis. Even when I got out of the Air Force in 1954, I came right back to Memphis and started knocking on doors at the radio station.

Johnny Cash
We joined a Conservative synagogue. I began learning through engagement, rote and reading. Suddenly, I belonged… well, to the extent that a novelist can ever feel she is part of a group; we may be part of a minyan, but we’re not fully merged into the community.

Susan Isaacs
It is just completely disgraceful that someone can go to the extent of morphing my face onto someone else’s body to create a sensational video.

Mona Singh
It’s a blessing to be a part of television shows that were, to a certain extent, staples in a lot of people’s lives and as far as their entertainment lives.

Kim Fields
Science and technology multiply around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.

J. G. Ballard
I’m not knocking the other sports; I love other sports. There’s a competitive and a technical level of them that I won’t understand, probably, to a certain extent, but I’ve done a lot of other sports competing on college teams, and there’s just nothing like fighting.

Luke Rockhold
It’s no longer necessary to slave over the vocals. I don’t sing the lyrics until I write them, and singing is the very last thing I do. I record the entire track, and then I worry about lyrics and vocals. The music will suggest where the words are going to a certain extent.

Todd Rundgren
The lives of African-Americans in this country are characterized by violence for most of our history. Much of that violence, at least to some extent, you know, done by the very state that’s supposed to protect them.

Ta-Nehisi Coates
My sister’s a singer, and she’s on Twitter, and she has millions of followers. I wonder how that helps her. I think it does to an extent. I think she gets free things.

Hannah Ware
The only way you can continue to make artistic films is to make an occasional one of those. They kind of keep your marketability going to the extent that people will employ you.

Gabriel Byrne
To what extent a film works is beyond me. My first film ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ did wonders at the box office. Then ‘Chocolate’ was also quite popular, but it didn’t have the same effect as the first one.

Tanushree Dutta
Monuments and archaeological pieces serve as testimonies of man’s greatness and establish a dialogue between civilizations showing the extent to which human beings are linked.

Vicente Fox
To make a division of power effectual, a veto in one form or another is indispensable. The right of each to judge for itself of the extent of the power allotted to its share, and to protect itself in its exercise, is what, in reality, is meant by a division of power.

John C. Calhoun
I was not a giant comic book fan as a kid, but to the extent that I did read comics, Spider-Man was always my favorite guy.

J. K. Simmons
I started growing my audience in small clubs through word-of-mouth. I started making music that isn’t necessarily commercially viable, and it’s not necessarily marketable to my peers to a certain extent.

Kat Edmonson
We were in denial about the extent to which Britain had cured itself of the poison of racism.

Nish Kumar
One important theme is the extent to which one can ever correct an error, especially outside any frame of religious forgiveness. All of us have done something we regret – how we manage to remove that from our conscience, or whether that’s even possible, interested me.

Ian Mcewan
Anyone who attacks our LGBT community, anyone who attacks anyone in our state, will be gone after with the full extent of the law.

Pam Bondi
Many legitimate forms of ownership, mainly cooperative and communal, had not been used to any effective extent mainly because of the imposition of Stalinist restrictions.

Alexander Dubcek
To the extent that we have a better understanding of the brain, we will have a richer appreciation of ourselves, of our fellow men and of society and, in fact, of the whole world and its problems.

John Eccles
A building or a town will only be alive to the extent that it is governed in a timeless way. It is a process which brings order out of nothing but ourselves; it cannot be attained, but it will happen of its own accord, if we will only let it.

Christopher Alexander
Many anti-energy groups display little appreciation of the extent to which modern economies depend pervasively on the use of fossil fuels and petrochemical products.

Robert Higgs
The haters can go to any extent to get the attention and I’m used to trolling.

Sara Khan
The NSA is already bugging everything that everybody does. Each time there’s a new revelation from Snowden, you realise the extent of it.

Geoffrey Hinton
I got back into the position of taking care of my husband, which is what I’d learned that I couldn’t really do: you can love and make things okay to a certain extent, but you can’t fix. I didn’t quite learn that until the kayaking incident. It became so clear then.

Mariel Hemingway
I’m intrigued by people who are super adept at manipulating their own image. We all do it to a certain extent.

K. Flay
In the same way that Egypt and Libya conspired to ‘disappear’ my father and silence writers such as Idris Ali, they made me, too, to a far lesser extent, feel punished for speaking out.

Hisham Matar
I’m a technophobe. I can’t crack the iPhone, and the extent of my multitasking is being able to talk while I make a drink.

Len Goodman
What I’ve said from the beginning is that I am going to try to help all the vulnerable populations in Afghanistan – and to a certain extent, that’s the majority of Afghanistan.

Rula Ghani
Adaptation seems to be, to a substantial extent, a process of reallocating your attention.

Daniel Kahneman
To some extent, the act of creation and the act of selling are hard to disentangle. If you create something, whether it’s a painting or a company, I think if you care about it, you have some obligation to go out and tell people about it.

Daniel H. Pink
The question is not whether Tibet should be independent but the extent of the autonomy that it is allowed. Tibet has been firmly ensconced as part of the Chinese empire since the Qing dynasty’s military intervention in Tibet in the early 18th century.

Martin Jacques
When you’re writing personal stories, you have to be totally uncompromising – to the extent that you can be – about yourself. I know that if I am uber-uncompromising with myself, that gives me some latitude to write about others.

Rob Lowe
I think ‘Trial & Retribution’ as a brand can go on forever. Its joy is that it has, to an extent, a formula, which gives a comfort routine for viewers. But we allow our directors total autarchy in putting their personalities on their stories.

Victoria Smurfit
In and after 1964 when I began to concern myself with the biological issues, and particularly from 1967 onwards, the extent of the problems over which I felt uneasy increased to such a point that in 1968 I felt a compelling urge to make my views public.

Andrei Sakharov
Cop shows are by definition melodramatic; they’re larger than life. They create very stark contrasts and conflicts emotionally. They’re provocative, assuming they grapple with – to the extent that cop shows are mirrors of the culture.

Steven Bochco
I think being a wealthy member of the establishment is the antithesis of cool. Being a countercultural revolutionary is cool. So to the extent that you’ve made a billion dollars, you’ve probably become uncool.

Sean Parker
I care about actors, and I understand them in a very personal way. I’m not saying every writer has to do that, but in my case, it’s been helpful. I can put myself into the scene and think, ‘What would it be like to act this?’ Any writer who’s really good probably does that to some extent.

Winnie Holzman
To some extent, Rwanda became a victim of the Somalia experience.

Kofi Annan
There was no measure that required greater caution or more severe scrutiny than one to impose taxes or raise a loan, be the form what it may. I hold that government has no right to do either, except when the public service makes it imperiously necessary, and then only to the extent that it requires.

John C. Calhoun
Children… are our legacy. Our responsibility. They are our destiny and we are theirs. The extent to which we fail as parents, we fail as God’s children.

Dirk Benedict
To the extent the dollar gains strength relative to other currencies, assets priced in those other currencies would become cheaper on a dollar basis.

Steve Mnuchin
I think every classically trained film composer feels to some extent, maybe on some level, that they took the low road, that they could have maybe pursued a career in the concert music world, and perhaps been involved in a higher quality of music.

James Newton Howard
The NATO forces will, to the extent that they have capacity, assist the war crimes tribunal.

Warren Christopher
The fact that some things are mysterious or that they touch on mystery isn’t in some way a capitulation, and one should realize that there are some things that we may never understand and, to that extent, should be humbled by that.

Simon Conway Morris
I got my heroes secondhand, from television and movies, to a certain extent.

Brad Bird
I don’t pass myself off as a Bible scholar or a pastor or someone who knows all the biblical facts cover-to-cover. I’m just a guy whose life was changed by it. And that’s about the extent of it. So I’m not easily offended when people struggle about where they’re at with their faith at all.

Shawn Michaels
The hierarchy of class in London was rigid. It was like a religion. It still is to a certain extent.

Ben Kingsley
I am very happy acting, and just have never gone at, or been bitten by the directing bug to the extent where I’m willing to put acting aside. If offered the opportunity, I think I could do a good job with the right material.

Stephen Lang
We’re all just a bundle of habits shaped by our memories. And to the extent that we control our lives, we do so by gradually altering those habits, which is to say the networks of our memory. No lasting joke, or invention, or insight, or work of art was ever produced by an external memory. Not yet, at least.

Joshua Foer
I would say that playing this character has caused me to think about a lot of things. He’s always questioning himself and trying to get back to something he lost touch with and trying to find forgiveness. Everybody struggles with these things to some extent in their life.

Lee Tergesen
To the extent that I can add value and make my country a better place, that’s a good thing to do.

Stephen A. Schwarzman
I believe in singing to such an extent that, if I were asked to redesign the British educational system, I would start by insisting that group singing becomes a central part of the daily routine. I believe it builds character and, more than anything else, encourages a taste for cooperation with others.

Brian Eno
I want to get up there and tell entertaining stories but that are also to a certain extent clean.

Jon Heder
In listening to the narratives of the Congolese, I came to terms with the extent to which their bodies had become battlefields.

Lynn Nottage
When you run for president, and become president, they just rip you apart. Every facade of privacy that you have is gone. I think everybody believes that, to some extent, you can maintain privacy. And I think in the end, everybody gets proven wrong.

James Carville
The mood in which my book was conceived and executed, was in fact to some extent a passing one.

F. H. Bradley
Expression, to a great extent, is a matter of terms, and terms are anyone’s. The meaning of ‘God’ may have a billion interpretations if there be that many souls in the world.

Charles Ives
I’ve been spared to a large extent the business end of the race stick.

Wentworth Miller
Aside from that reservation, a fictive tale even has the advantage of manifesting symbolic necessity more purely to the extent that we may believe its conception arbitrary.

Jacques Lacan
To the extent that Bernie Sanders was about building a movement of people where challenging things that up until then were unchallengeable, then absolutely we want to be seen in that mould.

Caroline Lucas
It’s not my style to either wear minimum clothes, to strip, or to even be comfortable with a sex-symbol label. I just want to do good work instead of sporting such meaningless tags. Sex sells, but to a small extent, not always. And this is what filmmakers have to accept.

Katrina Kaif
To a certain extent, just like my children, I nurture my writing until the point when it has to get out and face the outside world, where it takes on a life of its own. That is a purpose of any artist and their art.

Colman Domingo
This book is about physics and its about physics and its relationship with mathematics and how they seem to be intimately related and to what extent can you explore this relationship and trust it.

Roger Penrose
Everyone has those times when you feel like you don’t fit in. Everyone struggles to a certain extent with being cool and popular, but I never really let it affect me. I played sports and did theater, and school was really important to me. I had fun in high school.

Spencer Boldman
The fame of heroes owes little to the extent of their conquests and all to the success of the tributes paid to them.

Jean Genet
Aerobic dancing is already adjusting to injury problems and will probably phase out to some extent.

Kenneth H. Cooper
Or the other process that is important is that I compress longer sections of composed music, either found or made by myself, to such an extent that the rhythm becomes a timbre, and formal subdivisions become rhythm.

Karlheinz Stockhausen
Technology is permeating every single thing we do… And to the extent that we can better expose our young people to all the different ways that technology can be used, not just for video games or toys, we’re planning for the future.

Marc Morial
It’s fairly well known that we all hate each other to some extent. ‘Top Gear’ has worked because of a combination of camaraderie and mutual dislike. That’s actually the magic.

James May
It is impossible for someone to lie unless he thinks he knows the truth. A person who lies is thereby responding to the truth, and he is to that extent respectful of it.

Harry Frankfurt
We know there are certain types of viruses that are nasty – influenza, for instance, is an area that is not a blindside. But a lot of viruses have come out of nowhere, like H.I.V., or to a certain extent SARS. Because we know we have the potential to be blindsided, we really have to investigate the unknowns.

Nathan Wolfe
Ultimately we’re all moving towards a time when the races will be more and more mixed and we will all be brown to some extent.

Rick Famuyiwa
It would be wrong to say that the city of Berlin is not regulated. What I think is more interesting is to what extent a city creates a sort of safe haven for its users, so that people feel confident that the city works on their behalf.

Olafur Eliasson
It’s not like I’m a Buddhist or anything, but I think we’ve all got, to a certain extent, a predestined life. My journey took me from Boston to Philadelphia to Oakland to Los Angeles and then as a broadcaster. I’ve been fortunate.

Howie Long
I think to an extent every human being needs to be redeemed somewhat or at least needs to look at themselves and say, ‘I’ve made mistakes, I’m off course, I need to change.’ Which is probably the hardest thing for a human being to do, and maybe that’s why it interests me so.

Joss Whedon
I don’t think that a leader can control, to any great extent, his destiny. Very seldom can he step in and change the situation if the forces of history are running in another direction.

Richard M. Nixon
There are times when I’m watching an NFL quarterback struggling to get through the game, and I get bitter to some extent.

Jeff Garcia
Without Hitler, the State of Israel probably would not exist today. To that extent he was probably the Jews’ greatest friend.

David Irving
Nonetheless, to the extent that terrorists have come into our country or suspected or known terrorists have entered our country across a border, it’s been across the Canadian border. There are real issues there.

Janet Napolitano
The business, task or object of the scientific study of languages will if possible be 1) to trace the history of all known languages. Naturally this is possible only to a very limited extent and for very few languages.

Ferdinand de Saussure
To a certain extent, this tour is a celebration of individuality and that you can invent and reinvent yourself. You should have the power to be able to do that. Sexuality is a part of that. It should release you. It doesn’t have to be an issue. It shouldn’t box you in.

Neil Tennant
I don’t think I have the demeanor to be a politician. I’m used to making decisions and to a certain extent being in charge.

Raymond Kelly
I’ve always been an outsider to some extent.

I’ll bet Shakespeare compromised himself a lot; anybody who’s in the entertainment industry does to some extent.

Christopher Isherwood
I try to prepare for everything beyond the extent of preparation.

Taylor Swift
Every role is physical to a certain extent, but as a viewer, I don’t respond well to actors doing more than they need to tell a story.

Jamie Dornan
I have no problems exposing to any extent. However when I gave my first bikini shot, it was quite tough facing the public out there.

Rakhi Sawant
When it comes to Vijay Antony, he’s very calculative and is ready to go to any extent for the success of the movie.

Y. G. Mahendran
I am completely, utterly obsessed with clothes. To an embarrassing extent.

Sam Taylor-Johnson
We need to make sure that leaks of classified information, of national security secrets, needs to be rigorously pursued and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

John O. Brennan
Data allow your political judgments to be based on fact, to the extent that numbers describe realities.

Hans Rosling
I remember, growing up, you didn’t wear an England shirt. The English flag was very much – and still is, to some extent – associated with the far-right movements of the 1980s that I grew up around.

Riz Ahmed
The perception about me has changed to a certain extent after the success of ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.’

Nushrat Bharucha
When asked what he was fighting for, General Washington, in writing to General Thomas, said the object was ‘neither glory nor extent of territory, but a defense of all that is dear and valuable in life.’ He must have been an umpire. That’s what umpiring is about.

Doug Harvey
There’s pressure and it’s nerve-wracking, particularly in the Champions League. So you need to be able to free yourself to a certain extent and have fun in what you are doing.

Julian Nagelsmann
I don’t do Facebook and I don’t do Twitter, and already I notice that, with some of my friends, there’s a whole sphere of conversation that I’m completely on the outside of, and that’s my choice. But, to a greater extent, that’s what the whole of life is like.

James McAvoy
We’re all in the same room, so I want people to be involved with one another, but again you can’t decide exactly to what extent that operates. It varies all the time and it depends on the show, it depends on the audience, it depends on everything.

Mark Morris
To some extent, being an entrepreneur is a lonely journey.

Chad Hurley
Guys dropped their families and followed Him… When I read of Christ and the Apostles, I see mind control at work to an extent.

David Thibodeau
Everybody is xenophobic to an extent.

P. J. O’Rourke
My family wasn’t particularly political. Mom and Dad voted, but that was the extent of their involvement. In fact, I ended up going to U.C. Davis because, to them, Berkeley was too radical.

Jackie Speier
Reality is how we interpret it. Imagination and volition play a part in that interpretation. Which means that all reality is to some extent a fiction.

Yann Martel
We all know that any thing which retards in any way the free circulation of the sap, also prevents to a certain extent the formation of wood and leaves.

Robert Fortune
There is nothing respecting which a man may be so long unconscious as of the extent and strength of his prejudices.

Francis Jeffrey
I’m not a rock star. Sure I am, to a certain extent because of the situation, but when kids ask me how it feels to be a rock star, I say leave me alone, I’m not a rock star. I’m not in it for the fame, I’m in it because I like to play.

Eddie Van Halen
I have mild social anxiety to an extent where, when I’m talking to a new person, literally the only thing I can think in the back of my head is: ‘What do I say when they’re done talking?’

Bea Miller
To think Being itself explicitly requires disregarding Being to the extent that it is only grounded and interpreted in terms of beings and for beings as their ground, as in all metaphysics.

Martin Heidegger
The original idea of being anonymous – it was a great, naive idea on paper in 2008, not knowing to what degree we’d be touring or to what extent this was going to be a professional operation. That regimen is very hard to live by. What I hadn’t foreseen was the fans and their willingness to embrace that and play along.

Tobias Forge
We should note that this latter type of shift was successfully amplified to a considerable extent by Russian physicists using the intense light of a ruby laser whose wavelength is close to that of a transition of the potassium atom.

Alfred Kastler
No actor has made a career of exerting determination to the extent that Matt Damon has. In the ‘Bourne’ movies, he burned himself down to a central nervous system – his focus fried away unnecessary calories.

Elvis Mitchell
The game was different then, when I used to play. The ball ran more than the players and to some extent there was greater technical skill.

Mario Kempes
The story of ‘Highway’ is completely about travel. It is about the fascination of travel to an extent that I don’t want to even reach the destination and also being away from society gives you a certain view of the society, so that was the intention of the film.

Imtiaz Ali
I can’t distract myself enough here, for sketches to a new opera are constantly buzzing around in my head, to the extent that I need all my strength to wrest myself from them.

Richard Wagner
Health care is a design problem. Dependence on foreign oil is a design problem. To some extent, poverty is a design problem. We need design thinkers to solve those problems, and most people who are in positions of political power are not design thinkers, to put it mildly.

Daniel H. Pink
Grit may carry risk because it’s about putting all your eggs in one basket, to some extent.

Angela Duckworth
I like to see women getting drenched in the rain. So to that extent, I like ‘Barsaat.’

Ram Gopal Varma
People, even independently minded people, do to an extent draw their impressions from what they are told, especially if they are told it incessantly by newspapers.

Neil Kinnock
Everybody, to some extent, manipulates. Even children learn to cry when they want something. There are all kinds of subtle things we do to get others to follow our lead, not bother us, and so on.

Robert Greene
I have a very long relationship with America. My mother grew up there and I felt to some extent that I partly belong there. I was schooled there briefly for about a year.

Colin Firth
We are true to our name. We’re somewhat beneath the surface, and I think well always be to a certain extent.

Black Thought
The city of London, within the walls, occupies a space of only 370 acres, and is but the hundred and fortieth part of the extent covered by the whole metropolis.

Henry Mayhew
Esoteric or inner knowledge is no different from other kinds of human knowledge and ability. It is a mystery for the average person only to the extent that writing is a mystery for those who have not yet learned to write.

Rudolf Steiner
After my first knee operation, in January of ’65 before I went to the Jets, Dr. James Nicholas told me everything went well and that I could probably play four years in the NFL. The surgery was trailblazing to a certain extent.

Joe Namath
The ‘Playboy’ affiliation will probably stick for the rest of my life to some extent.

Barbi Benton
Ultimately, to have a career in movies, to a certain extent, certainly in England, you can’t sustain a career in just English movies.

Clive Owen
I was influenced by my mother to a great extent and I came to know about Hindu mythology from her.

Pooja Bedi
Sheet music, recording, radio, television, cassettes, CD burners, and file sharing have all invalidated, to some extent, the old model of making a living making music.

Kent Beck
A song has to take on character, shape, body and influence people to an extent that they use it for their own devices. It must affect them not just as a song, but as a lifestyle.

David Bowie
To the extent that there is anything properly identifiable as dignity in our society today, our present writers of comedy would be inclined to treat it as a proper object of ridicule.

Steve Allen
Charities are really good. To a certain extent, the ones you pick are arbitrary.

Penn Jillette
It’s no easy task to coach the national team. I never realised to what extent one becomes the property of the people.

Mickey Arthur
The CAA is not a law to remove someone from the country. Union home minister Amit Shah has said that it is to give citizenship. And I agree with it to that extent. It is to give citizenship to persecuted minorities from neighbouring countries and not to remove anyone from the country.

Uddhav Thackeray
In ‘Saaho,’ I play a grey character, someone who is complex from within. Devraj is someone who has grown cold over time, to the extent that people might describe him as someone who has died a hundred times.

Chunky Pandey
I’m very comfortable in the air. And if you’re really in love with flight, you’re in love to a certain extent with being outside of the body, not grounded. The problem is, if you’re not in your body, you can’t actually feel anything particularly authentically.

Ellen McLaughlin
In China, the problem is that with the system of censorship that’s now in place, the user doesn’t know to what extent, why, and under what authority there’s been censorship. There’s no way of appealing. There’s no due process.

Rebecca MacKinnon
Politicians are strong to the extent that they are ready to take serious decisions and fight for it.

Ehud Olmert
Homo sapiens is a social being, and our well-being depends to a large extent on the quality and depth of our social and family relations – and in the last 200 years, they have been disintegrating.

Yuval Noah Harari
I doubt I’d ever do television to the extent that, say, Gordon Ramsay has.

David Chang
To the extent that the United States has, I don’t like the word hegemony, the United States has influence around the world, I don’t think that’s based on to any significant degree on the fact that countries use the dollar as their major reserve.

Robert C. Solomon
So I know that if anything’s on television people will be drawn to it to some extent.

Pendleton Ward
My father very early on had both short and long-term strategies in his approach to raising his children, so my father was disturbed by the extent to which I was interested in both hip-hop and sports.

Thomas Chatterton Williams
New technologies and approaches are merging the physical, digital, and biological worlds in ways that will fundamentally transform humankind. The extent to which that transformation is positive will depend on how we navigate the risks and opportunities that arise along the way.

Klaus Schwab
I have this vision of maybe going the way of Bill Kurtis and, I think, Tom Brokaw, to a certain extent – the ability to not be tied to the desk anymore, but to do projects that are meaningful to you.

Lester Holt
All politicians are to some extent salesmen.

George Will
In retrospect, I have devoted my scientific life mainly to the question to what extent infectious agents contribute to human cancer, trusting that this will contribute to novel modes of cancer prevention, diagnosis and, hopefully, later on, also to cancer therapy.

Harald zur Hausen
Companies have choices to make about what extent they’re handling their users’ content.

Rebecca MacKinnon
If it was in the interest of Rome to extend her conquests towards the East, and to enter on the inheritance of Alexander the Great there in all its extent, the circumstances were never more favourable for doing so than in the year 716.

Theodor Mommsen
For me, it’s not a struggle to go out and play hockey. Under pressure, I feel it to a certain extent… but, I’m not scared of it.

Martin Brodeur
Only by taking responsibility for oneself, to the greatest extent possible, can one ever be free, and only a free person can make responsible choices – between right and wrong, saving and spending, giving or taking.

Paul Ryan
You can read everybody. It’s not even interesting to tell the truth because to some extent it’s false.

Charles Olson
There’s always some extent of luck going into getting a job. I try not to think too much about my own looks or how I work. There’s a danger in becoming too self-aware.

Bill Skarsgard
As an Egyptian, I was always frustrated, just like many young Egyptians, of the situation in the country. And to a large extent, we didn’t know what could we do. And looking at Khaled’s photo after his death; basically I just felt that we are all Khaled Said.

Wael Ghonim
To the extent that anyone has leverage over North Korea, it’s China.

James Clapper
I think it is important to remind people of the extent of our free will.

Jeffrey Eugenides
I think to the extent you die with money in the bank, you’ve miscalculated.

Gary David Goldberg
We’ve all faced the charge that our novels are history lite, and to some extent, that’s true. Yet for some, historical fiction is a way into reading history proper.

Saul David
It doesn’t matter how much you want. What really matters is how much you want it. The extent and complexity of the problem does not matter was much as does the willingness to solve it.

Ralph Marston
I think, as a younger actor, you are more open to the experience. And to an extent, you want to go into things blind and energised as if you were 15. Keep that terror.

Chiwetel Ejiofor
There hasn’t been one show that we did, that I didn’t enjoy to some extent.

Peter Tork
I went with the flow. I never knew this could be a career option. But as a 21-year-old desperate for people to watch his content and hear his music, I could go to any extent. Creating four videos a week, only a man sitting empty can do it.

Bhuvan Bam
Humans are crude linguists from the moment of birth – and perhaps even in the womb – to the extent at least that we can hear spoken sounds and begin to recognize different combinations of language sounds.

Jeffrey Kluger
Acting is the most personal of our crafts. The make-up of a human being – his physical, mental and emotional habits – influence his acting to a much greater extent than commonly recognized.

Lee Strasberg
Charter schools are public schools that operate, to a certain extent, outside the system. They have more control over their teachers, curriculum and resources. They also have less money than public schools.

Maggie Gallagher
Jazz and poetry both involve a structure that may be familiar and to some extent predictable. And then, you try to create as much surprise and spontaneity and feeling and variation while respecting that structure.

Robert Pinsky
All politicians will say they celebrate the NHS, but to a greater or lesser extent, they’ve all undermined it.

Ken Loach
Shakespeare is absolutely big in Africa. I guess he’s big everywhere. Growing up, Shakespeare was the thing. You’d learn monologues and you’d recite them. And just like hip-hop, it made you feel like you knew how to speak English really well. You had a mastery of the English language to some extent.

Ishmael Beah
Uber, and Airbnb to a different extent, implemented the same battle plan. Bezos is an investor in both companies and, to some degree, has relationships with both CEOs. It is not a surprise that they are heirs to Amazon.

Brad Stone
When virtue is at liberty, so to some extent is vice.

Barbara Amiel
So without getting into the specifics, I can tell you that to the extent that investigation is a relatively important investigation and meaningful, the president would have been periodically briefed.

Robert Mueller
I think it’s really important for the independent web to have a platform, and to the extent that WordPress can serve that role, I think it’s a great privilege and responsibility.

Matt Mullenweg
Adults have pretty much made up their minds – they like you to the extent that you confirm what they already believe.

Mark Kurlansky
There are a number of institutions globally where the Federal Reserve typically leads the U.S. effort to work with financial regulators from other countries, and we try to, to the extent possible, establish international standards for how – the amount of capital a bank should hold, for example, or how much.

Ben Bernanke
I’ve been writing since 1973. I’ve written nonfiction things of that nature, but I’m probably best known for crime fiction and, to some extent, horror fiction.

Joe R. Lansdale
Every time I write an article pointing out there is no scientific consensus on the extent of man-made – as opposed to natural – climate change, or that attacks on genetically modified food are flawed, I am accused, quite seriously, of being on the payroll of Monsanto or Western Mining.

Miranda Devine
To a certain extent, platforms are platitudes that you test when you get to govern. You have to run those priorities up against the opposition and decide what’s most important.

Sheldon Whitehouse
To one extent, if you’ve seen one city slum, you’ve seen them all.

Spiro T. Agnew
I think I am generally prone to exaggerating characters, taking them to a ridiculous extent. But you do also meet those people in real life who are just really awful.

Julia Davis
In the beginning, when I was trying to write, I couldn’t turn off the outside world to the extent that I can now.

Raymond Carver
You’ve got to acknowledge what you did wrong and see if you can fix it to the extent possible, and turn the page.

Tony La Russa
God cannot be realized through the intellect. Intellect can lead one to a certain extent and no further. It is a matter of faith and experience derived from that faith.

Mahatma Gandhi
I think the climate is changing, but I don’t believe humans are causing that change to the extent that’s been in the news.

Cory Gardner
Bands are actively seeking more film involvement – because the days of recording albums and MTV and even touring, to some extent, are gone.

John Hillcoat
That song has the full extent of my mandolin abilities; I’m not a good mandolin player at all.

John Fogerty
From the building of the temple of Solomon, which is also treated as a leading epoch in chronology, a new period in the history of worship is accordingly dated, – and to a certain extent with justice.

Julius Wellhausen
I think the relationship between social-dominance orientation in people and the extent to which they’re made uncomfortable by ambiguity and novelty is really important. Better a stable world that’s familiar, in which I’m doing pretty poorly, than dealing with all the ambiguity of a changing world.

Robert Sapolsky
I think our societies – to certain extent, of course, and to different degrees, but almost with no exception – have always been struggling to come to terms with archaic traditions.

Yasmine Hamdan
I think my whole life had centered on Democratic politics. I was very much in that bubble. I worked in the Clinton administration so I had all these friends from there, and then in Democratic politics in New York, so that’s what we sort of bonded over – that was our religion, to a certain extent.

Kirsten Powers
I grew up poor and used to look at people in big houses and thought they had everything. Then, later on, I looked at models in magazines and thought they had it all. When you have the ability to live that life, to some extent you find out that they don’t have any magic cure for everything.

Alana Stewart
I have held Jimi Hendrix’s Woodstock guitar and imagined what it would be like to play it, but that’s the extent of it.

Paul Allen
I’m a big believer in the notion that our greatest potential lies in our darkest parts. To a certain extent it’s only in facing those parts of ourselves that we can truly grow, and I think that’s true of all of the characters I’ve played, certainly in the past few years.

Zachary Quinto
Every child is going to grow up. You can see it happen in the books: They get older and older and belong to themselves to a greater and greater extent.

Jock Sturges
To a certain extent, I like fashion, but sometimes I just want to be comfortable and don’t really care.

Gia Coppola
Rian Malan was one of the first younger writers to perceive and write about a darkness in the South African psyche that goes deeper than mere politics. To some extent, that’s my territory, too.

Damon Galgut
I don’t want success to affect me to that extent that I change or failure to that extent that I get sad, bitter and negative.

Arjun Kapoor
People with conservative temperaments don’t become fighter pilots or presidential candidates – they’re all that way to some extent.

Tucker Carlson
Every public company depends to some extent on the trust of its investors.
