Surfing is such an incredible experience with a huge ego element.

Nick Woodman

Sam Heughan
I guess the passion I have for cinema is as strong as the one that I have for music. And I’ve always tried to be a character in the film, not just a composer that throws his music to the film. That’s the main element that connects me with directors.

Alexandre Desplat

Mike Flanagan
My films, I’ve tried to put a message into them. It’s not about the gore; it’s not about the horror element that are in them. It’s more about the message, for me. That’s what it is, and I’m using this platform to be able to show my feelings of what I think.

Derek Walcott
Any Arthurian enthusiast who has watched ‘Merlin’ has probably concluded that it’s not accurate whatsoever – but, it’s not meant to be. It’s not meant to be a true telling. It’s in a fantasy setting, it’s really concentrating on the fantasy element.

I think there’s a lot of crazy stuff on the Internet. You read stuff that is wild speculation, and there’s an element of it that makes me not trust it because there’s this undercurrent of insanity to it sometimes.

Neill Blomkamp
There was a couple weeks when I was like, I’m going vegan and gluten free. Then I was trying all these weird diets because I think there was this element of control over my surroundings that that gave me.

Michelle Zauner
We love the idea of really putting on a show. It’s not just a band playing on the stage. There’s a theatrical element to what’s going on.

St. Lucia
Many shows in television have tried to do a Web element, and usually it’s dumb. ‘iCarly’ has set the bar in television and Internet. I don’t think there is better example. That may be the most significant thing about it.

Dan Schneider
Life, like poker has an element of risk. It shouldn’t be avoided. It should be faced.

Edward Norton
When we started there was this element of these experiments we were doing where we weren’t really sure how the music would play out because the music was all on different players.

Wayne Coyne
It’s the details and the human element that makes ‘Recount’ entertaining. Even though we know how the election ends, it plays like a thriller. It’s also funny.

Kevin Spacey
Man needs colour to live; it’s just as necessary an element as fire and water.

Fernand Leger
The work being done by Linklaters to help organizations understand keys to success in the development sector serves as an important international affairs issue and crucial element in how all of us work to support service provision in impoverished communities in a lasting and effective way.

Ann Cotton
For me, being able to go anywhere you want, with an element of precision and control, has been the goal.

Paul Parker
The thing I learned from watching Iain Glen and Brendan Gleeson, and Aidan Gillen and Michael Fassbender when I worked with them, there’s a huge element of leading something. It’s the atmosphere and dynamic you’re creating on set.

Killian Scott
A defensive coordinator is always going to try to throw you something different and get you out of your element, and I have to do better with the pass protection.

Josh Allen
There’s this whole other element of film scoring, which is the social and psychological side of how you’re dealing with people… And that is not always in sync with what’s right for the picture.

Marco Beltrami
I want to keep an element of myself in every character I play. And maybe that’s connected to finding something that you like in every character. Maybe they coincide.

Jamie Dornan
The great character actors are now the actors whose work has the element of ritual sacrifice once claimed by the DeNiros of the world, as well as the element of danger – the actors who thrill us by going for broke.

Tom Junod
Using something that is really painful, generally, as the percussive element for a beat, I think is cool.

Daveed Diggs
From afar, we know we have a great land, dominated by so many different forms of terrain, and we’ve got amazing and unique animals, and the climate, the beauty and the brutality of it. But I think the detail, and the intimate element of it, I think we’re kind of a little bit lost on it.

Aaron Pedersen
Life is precious and time is a key element. Let’s make every moment count and help those who have a greater need than our own.

Harmon Killebrew
I have found that women are really in their element in a very collaborative approach.

Lynne Doughtie
Impressions are still kind of hard for me and not what I love to do the most, but with characters, I think there’s an element of fearlessness. You try to figure out the best reading and wording of the jokes before the show, and then you just really have to go hard.

Cecily Strong
The only element of jazz that I keep is improvisation.

Jan Garbarek
All businesses should have an element of social enterprise, and all social enterprises should not ignore the most important lessons from successful commercial businesses.

Holly Branson
We need to incorporate fashion into every element and institution, whether it be through designer-lecture series, photography exhibitions, or collaborative efforts between artists and designers.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff
What’s cool about YouTube, unlike TV, is that there isn’t that competition element. I mean, you could make it into that, as there’s obviously numbers involved, but people are free to watch whoever they want.

The sex element is the most important in the business. You must sell sex.

Bobby Darin
Every demo I do has a mandolin or resonator on it – some element of the bluegrass or classic country world that I grew up listening to and that first drew me in. And then I always try to find somewhere for a bluesy guitar sound, because that’s also what I love. Musically, I’m always finding my way home.

Hunter Hayes
A single element in transactional mode can never be analysed to calculate either loss or presumptive loss. The losses or gains of all elements in the transaction need to be analysed.

Kapil Sibal
Without the element of uncertainty, the bringing off of even, the greatest business triumph would be dull, routine, and eminently unsatisfying.

J. Paul Getty
Most people who have encountered mercury have done so after breaking a mercury thermometer. And many of us who saw the liquid balls of mercury scatter across a floor or countertop considered the element the most beautiful on the periodic table.

Sam Kean
What could an unsanctified man do in Heaven, if by any chance he got there? Let that question be fairly looked in the face and fairly answered. No man can possibly be happy in a place where he is not in his element and where all around him is not congenial to his tastes, habits and character.

J. C. Ryle
There’s a classic element that all good Disney movies have. It really comes down to the storytelling, I think. It manages to push all of these buttons inside of us; there’s a sentimentality.

Mandy Moore
For acting, if there’s a strong female role and there is that action element, for me that just feels really natural.

Marisa Miller
It’s different in Scotland. People who come to readings are more interested in literature as such, but the readership in general is really quite diverse. It’s a cliche, but it’s said that people who read my books don’t read any other books, and you do get that element.

Irvine Welsh
I like the idea of movies having a magic element. How many times have you seen an actor in a movie who you know only as the character? It’s wonderful, isn’t it?

Christian Bale
‘The Borgias’ is quite good because it does stick quite steadfastly to historical fact, so a lot of people who are interested in the historical element will love watching it, but they were also a ridiculously dramatic family.

Holliday Grainger
What they will do is, you know the tabloids. They’ll take one element of a story that may be true and they’ll build everything around it. Take a picture and invent a story around it.

Dennis Quaid
I’m a huge, huge fan of Blu-ray. I think the picture and the sound quality is just such a massive improvement, and I think for movies like ‘Event Horizon,’ where the image is a key part of that film, and also the sound, as well, in any scary movie is an important element.

Paul W. S. Anderson
I like stories where people have to face some big demons internally. It always seems to be an element of horror, because it’s pretty scary to have to face yourself and the things you’re most worried about: your own abilities and your own capabilities and your own level of competence in being a hero.

Scott Snyder
I like the more community element of comedy. And I hate people pitting other people against each other. Audiences are always judging you, but when you’re being judged for a competition, it just takes away the joy of the job.

Aisling Bea
But I think the children of actors share a certain pragmatic approach. One is denied some of that ‘running away with the circus’ element of being an actor.

Toby Jones
According to the Jain view, soul is that element which knows, thinks and feels. It is in fact the divine element in the living being. The Jain thinks that the phenomena of knowledge, feeling, thinking and willing are conditioned on something, and that that something must be as real as anything can be.

Virchand Gandhi
I like an element of chaos in music. That feeling is the best thing ever, as long as you don’t have too much of it.

Jeff Beck
I think that’s how any actor would make their performance convincing: by bringing an element of themselves into the character.

Alfie Allen
You need to have one element about your outfit that is imperfect, that says you live in it and you’re not letting it control you. I think men and women both need a softness about them with formal wear.

Paul Feig
What is forgiveness? An emotion? A coping mechanism? An element of deepest faith? A way for the heart and soul to combat the type of hate, anger, rage and a thirst for revenge that could ultimately consume a person? All of those and more?

Mike Barnicle
There’s such a strong community element in country – it’s like a family. So I don’t want to do anything that can come off, even if I’m not intentionally doing it, as giving the perception that I’m trying to abandon that family.

Sam Hunt
The element of teamwork is perhaps underappreciated.

Stewart Butterfield
I do think a focus on fiscal restraint is a central element of the Tea Party, and thank goodness for it!

Ken Cuccinelli
A basic element of the American dream is equal access to education as the lubricant of social and economic mobility.

Nicholas Kristof
We will work to bring an element of stability to the price of oil.

Olusegun Obasanjo
There is a glacier in Iceland, Solheimar, which has retreated a great deal, and every time I go back there and see what’s not there any more, it does something to the heart. It makes you realise it’s possible for a gigantic natural element to just disappear.

James Balog
Making a film is so scary, and there’s such a kind of void that you’re working from initially. I mean, you can have all the ideas and be as prepared as possible, but you’re also still bringing people together and saying, ‘Trust me,’ even when you don’t necessarily trust every element.

Todd Haynes
I wanted a woman, at first, with a classy side but with a really wild, crazy side. I wanted that because I’m wild and crazy sometimes. But that was then. Now I need less wild and crazy, like, a little bit of that element, but more class. A woman that’s responsible and that wants to take care of herself.

Ray J
There was a glamorous Nick-and-Nora element to my parents. If you remove one from the other, you’re left with neither. But parents are parents.

Christopher Buckley
The single most powerful element of youth is our inability to know what’s impossible.

Adam Braun
When you read the New Testament, you see the Holy Spirit was supposed to change everything so that this gathering of people who call themselves Christians had this supernatural element about them.

Francis Chan
I remember from my school days Archimedes jumping into his bath and displacing water and coming up with his famous principle, and of course Isaac Newton being hit on the head with an apple. In other words, this realm of human knowledge – which is mathematical, essentially – can have a playful visual element to it.

James Marsh
I think that music is crucially important in Shakespeare – and, clearly, was an important part of the Elizabethan theatre. And, it’s always been something that was a profound element of the experience of Shakespeare that I have been drawn to – and interpreters have, as well.

Kenneth Branagh
New York has a strong focus on the migration of immigrants, and there is a crime element there and even an underbelly, but Chicago is a much harder and more brazen city.

David Eigenberg
To me, rock music was never meant to be safe. I think there needs to be an element of intrigue, mystery, subversiveness. Your parents should hate it.

Trent Reznor
For example, in painting the form arises from abstract elements of line and color, while in cinema the material concreteness of the image within the frame presents – as an element – the greatest difficulty in manipulation.

Sergei Eisenstein
You know when a song has a melody or some kind of element that affects you, and that is what I am trying to go for.

Britt Daniel
The Inhumans, just as an idea – the idea that you were an ordinary horseman until you were exposed to this catalyst that is a very rare element – is a neat idea in and of itself.

Charles Soule
As a group, we want to follow good and green strategy. Setting targets is one element of that. The second part is to design products which meet environmental goals.

Jamshyd Godrej
I want to evolve each season. I never want to be one of those brands where people know what they’re going to see. I always want an element of surprise. One thing I never want to do is copy what anybody else is doing. I have a signature, and it’s very important to me to stay true to that.

Victoria Beckham
Poker has such an element of competitivness that other games don’t have.

Chris Moneymaker
I have come to the conclusion that the most important element in human life is faith.

Rose Kennedy
CRATEL is a center with a two-fold mission – to explore technology as an expressive element and to use technology to bridge gaps between diverse groups of people.

John Harrison
I still enjoy my life, and I feel like I’ve achieved enough things that if I never did anything again, I’d feel confident that I’d still have made my mark in some way. But maybe the self-loathing bit is the element that makes you strive for more. Makes you strive to be better.

David Walliams
Having a visual element to your band is a good thing.

Billy Gibbons
There’s only one common element that united every writer I’ve admired… they’re all incredibly well-read.

Steve Toltz
Everybody agrees that whatever the solutions are to the big problems, they… can never be without some element of education.

Nicholas Negroponte
The popularity of Groupon has almost rendered the group-buying element of it obsolete, because we’re able to deliver so many customers that the merchants are very happy with even the smallest number that we can provide.

Andrew Mason
All novels are about crime. You’d be hard pressed to find any novel that does not have an element of crime. I don’t see myself as a crime novelist, but there are crimes in my books. That’s the nature of storytelling, if you want to reflect the real world.

Carl Hiaasen
One thing that is exciting about fashion is the surprise element. People don’t know what they want. They just know when they see it.

Marc Jacobs
Faith always contains an element of risk, of venture; and we are impelled to make the venture by the affinity and attraction which we feel in ourselves.

William Inge
One theme I ran into over and over while writing about the periodic table was the future of energy and the question of which element or elements will replace carbon as king.

Sam Kean
One key element to Hitchcock is the drooping jowl. That was crucial because his silhouette is crucial. There is something about his silhouette that became his brand.

Toby Jones
I’ve done a lot of different tours. For me, I try to go on tours that I think are gonna be fun. It’s, like, grueling, and it’s hard, and there’s got to be an element to it that’s exciting.

When two elements combine and form more than one compound, the masses of one element that react with a fixed mass of the other are in the ratio of small whole numbers.

Humphry Davy
But though cognition is not an element of mental action, nor even in any real sense of the word an aspect of it, the distinction of cognition and conation has if properly defined a definite value.

Samuel Alexander
There’s an element of control that comes with acting which you’ve just got to be really mindful of.

Jonathan Bailey
The most powerful element in advertising is the truth.

William Bernbach
I probably get a deeper satisfaction of having taken a very good photograph than of having written something very good, a very good story. Maybe it’s because the element of magic is so present in a good photograph – luck and magic, but also hard work and being ready and all that.

Teju Cole
Colors which stand the test of time are Valentino red, white and black. For the festive look, using these colors, you can work with embroidery and sequins to add some bling element to it.

Rhea Pillai
Campaigning for Congress is an issue of conviction, and there is no element of any personal gain in it.

Mahesh Bhatt
There is a pop element to what I do, but I’m going for a deeper, more left-of-center vibe. That’s the sound I’ve always been looking for.

I know exactly what I’m doing on the ice, and I’m in my element.

Apolo Ohno
I should point out that I was intimately involved with a group of women here a year and a half ago when there was an effort made by a right wing element in the President’s party to get him to turn back the clock.

Birch Bayh
The human element should be the two players on the court, not the officials. The best officials are the ones you never notice. The nature of the game made officials too noticeable a part.

Gene Scott
Mexico’s government has made a strong commitment to boosting the country’s competitiveness in global trade, and the Ministry of Economy recognizes that trade facilitation is a key element in achieving this objective.

Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal
We all like all of that, from ‘Rubber Soul’ to ‘The White Album’ and all of that, but even before, we were into that theatrical element of things. We didn’t want to do a ‘Sgt. Pepper’s’ thing.

Ryan Ross
For me it came from the material. It was so well written and brought the opportunity to work with great actors. And of course the opportunity to ‘mince about’ was an added element that I wanted to take advantage of!

Dwayne Johnson
I view advertising as being this romanticizing element that helps us appreciate, understand and enjoy how remarkable it is that we’ve been able to do so much, and learn so much. I view it as really vital, even though sometimes it can be really annoying.

Jaron Lanier
Quality, affordable housing is a key element of a strong and secure Iowa.

Tom Vilsack
And introduce an element of cynicism and darkness into it and just realize that we’re all vulnerable. We are humans. There is a finite end to this life and we’re all going to face it and a little silliness can help.

Alan Thicke
My stand-up shows don’t really have a theme but do have an interactive element to them.

Sean Lock
There’s not much TV these days where you really get that element of surprise. There are so many spoilers all the time.

Jenna-Louise Coleman
Throughout my career, there has always been an element of surprise. Sometimes there are moments of disappointment; sometimes there are moments of surprising success.

Michael McDonald
More than trends, consumers need functionality. Everything needs an element of fashion, but that’s more like a spice.

Tadashi Yanai
I think some women try to make you feel you’re not all female because you haven’t given birth. There are a lot of prejudices. Some women think women who have animals are deeply sad, because what they really want is a child. Mind you, there’s probably an element of truth in that.

Alison Goldfrapp
I want to keep looking for roles that have an element of surprise.

Tahir Raj Bhasin
In some sense, what you might have suspected from the first day of high-school chemistry is true: The periodic table is a colossal waste of time. Nine out of every 10 atoms in the universe are hydrogen, the first element and the major constituent of stars. The other 10 percent of all atoms are helium.

Sam Kean
As long as the crowd make noise, I will be in my element, whether it is booing or cheering. The main thing is I get a reaction of some kind.

Paulie Malignaggi
There is an element of mystique to radio, and I often listen to cricket commentary on radio, especially when one is stuck in a traffic jam.

Rahul Dravid
Most American films have now become mindless. The human element has been removed, so you are just left with the surrogate human, which is the robot, so coincidentally or, rather, ironically, they are making films about robots, without realising they are talking about themselves.

Steven Berkoff
What was any art but a mould in which to imprison for a moment the shining elusive element which is life itself – life hurrying past us and running away, too strong to stop, too sweet to lose.

Willa Cather
I think there’s a spiritual element to dancing in general. There’s a reason why in every culture, dancing seems to be in our DNA.

Jon Hopkins
Your primary tools, as an actor, are observation and imagination. You can pretty much get everything you need from that, and you do. It brings back that element of pretend.

Stephen Lang
I believe that the story is the most important element of any medium whether it’s theater, film, TV.

Chad Lowe
Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe, and has the potential to become an inexpensive source of energy for neighborhoods, light and heavy duty vehicles, and industry.

Charlie Dent
Ethno-nationalism – it’s losers. It’s a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, eh, help crush it more.

Steve Bannon
Time is the element that controls the consciousness, the very being of the people.

Jamaica Kincaid
We tell stories. We talk about statistics. And in 1978, we added an element of the show that gave it its heartbeat: the long distance dedication.

Casey Kasem
Whenever there’s a role that scares me, I get panicked and nervous. I know that greatness might come because I’m going to get out of my own element and comfort zone.

Moran Atias
Ivanka Trump’s declared mission to ’empower women who work’ is a welcome element in the Trump administration. As a woman with a desk in the White House and the founder of an international corporation, she is certainly in a position to improve the wages, safety, and quality of life of working women around the world.

Jan Schakowsky
The other thing that was very noticeable on that tour, not so much in the video, was the new young element that were coming to our shows… I started to see some very young people in the audience… maybe 14, 15, 16 years old.

David Coverdale
Harvard was also a little bit of a villain in my first book, ‘The Dante Club.’ I guess there might be a way to make Harvard more of a sympathetic presence, but it’s such a powerful institution that it more naturally lends itself toward not necessarily a negative but an obstructionist element in a story.

Matthew Pearl
I will be doing a lot of human interest interviews. It involves empathising and listening. Which is a lot of what my day job is about. And, frankly, the priesthood isn’t without its element of showbusiness.

Richard Coles
It’s important for me to put out things that I think are good – I want to be a fan of my own stuff. I also want my live shows to be really awesome, and dance is such an important element for me and my performances.

I think there is an element of nihilism about, but I don’t think most artists feel their work is meaningless.

Leonard Baskin
I’m increasingly conscious of the fact that, even when we know a lot, there’s an element of blind faith. For things to work well, you have to surrender to the moment. This is especially true of writing, producing and truly giving it all in a performance.

I believe that creativity is an important human experience and element in the same way as sleeping, eating, having sex.

Zac Posen
Really good books need a chaos element: something weird or inexplicable.

Michel Faber
I do honestly believe that, in the 21st century, sport is the most significant cultural element in this imperfect world. It calls for serious attention.

Frank Deford
I’ve always loved the rustic, slightly worn style of Canvas and that element of an artisanal hand. It’s so inherently chic.

Jason Wu
From the beginning, I wanted to make dance music with a human element to it.

Beth Orton
It is obvious that putting the Arab-Israeli dispute on a resolution track would be an important element of overcoming the confidence problem in the region.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan
Life will be interesting only when there is an element of surprise in it.

I don’t give my 100 per cent to any man.There should be an element of mystery left in the relationship to make it more fun.

Koena Mitra
Truth is the number one element in whatever you do with music.

I miss the days when girls would wear full long dresses and just stand onstage and sing. That’s what I’m trying to bring back: that timeless element. I want to create music that people will be listening to in fifty years, you know?

Sam Smith
Despite being quite a shy kid, I was in my element with my mates. I definitely wasn’t shy then. We had a lot of fun, running around town getting into mischief.

Adriano Zumbo
Religion must completely encircle the spirit of ethical man like his element, and this luminous chaos of divine thoughts and feelings is called enthusiasm.

Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Religion is one dimension of culture, a transcendent element of it.

Francis Arinze
My own philanthropic efforts have always included an educational element, whether it’s expanding opportunities to educate a promising mind or extending the brain’s ability to learn.

Naveen Jain
If I do a portrait, I know what they can take. If somebody’s a sweet, shy person, the photographs will be sweet and shy. Of course, you ask people to do something which they might not have done before, but that’s the journey, the fun element.

Juergen Teller
I lived for 10 years in Los Angeles, and the one element that surpasses everything else – that you are very conscious of – is fear. You can smell it.

Christopher Lee
Me as an artist, I’m more notorious for writing songs that celebrate women, songs that are all about the positive element of the immensely confusing creature that is woman.

You always have to come from the element of ‘What do you have in common?’ first. It makes it easier to work through your differences.

Nikki Haley
I think as an actor you’ve got to try to preserve some of your mystery so that there’s still an element of surprise about where characters come from.

Freddie Fox
I love love, and I love life. I love. I just love. It’s just great. It’s the most enduring element we have is love.

Gary Busey
I love the breadth and space you get to explore character in so-called serialized TV, the novelistic element of maybe being able to find out who people are. But I also very much like the sitcom discipline of having a self-contained episode that you could conceivably, I hope, be able to enjoy in and of itself.

Jesse Armstrong
‘Flash’ has a family drama element, ‘Arrow’ has a epic saga/crime element, ‘Supergirl’ has a young-woman-in-the-city and a workplace element, and ‘Legends’ is like the Dirty Dozen teaming up.

Greg Berlanti
Ronald has had bicycle safety and safety in the home. Yes, Ronald is McDonald’s, second most recognised figure after Santa Claus, and there’s an element of obviously benefiting your business.

Jim Cantalupo
One thing I always loved about hip-hop music was the raw, boom-bap element – it felt powerful and manly.

I like the contrast in making something that sounds sunny but also has an element of melancholy to it.

Jamie xx
You look at marketing: everything that’s happening in marketing is digitized. Everything that’s happening in finance is digitized. So pretty much every industry, every function in every industry, has a huge element that’s driven by information technology. It’s no longer discrete.

Satya Nadella
We men are easily prone to sins of thought. Therefore, He who has formed each heart individually, knowing that the impulse received from the intention constitutes the major element in sin, has ordained that purity in the ruling part of our soul be our primary concern.

Saint Basil
Playing fast and aggressive poker can help manufacture chips out of thin air and is one element of the game that separates the great players from the merely very good. But beware; it can be risky.

Phil Hellmuth
Surprise is a huge element in acting.

Simon Helberg
I quite like the element of charity shops not being sorted out.

Alice Levine
I did work incredibly hard but I think there’s a certain element of luck.

Lisa Stansfield
As I live my normal life, I hope to find something that click starts a thought, and then something totally unrelated would arise, and then maybe a third unconnected element would come from nowhere.

Rei Kawakubo
I really want to do a film in another language. My dad’s from Germany, so it’d be really cool to do a film in German. I’m not quite fluent, but I can get there. And my accent’s pretty good. I wouldn’t feel too out of my element.

Kirsten Dunst
My character is such an entertaining character that it is a whole other element to the show, so once they put me and Carmella together it was like, okay, now I have something to do.

It’s always nice working with friends. And if you have a director that you’ve worked with before, you don’t have to go through that first learning thing. There’s an element of trust there.

Jeremy Irons
There is probably an element of malice in our readiness to overestimate people – we are, as it were, laying up for ourselves the pleasure of later cutting them down to size.

Eric Hoffer
I could never overstate the importance of a musician’s need to develop his or her ear. Actually, I believe that developing a good ‘inner ear’ – the art of being able to decipher musical components solely through listening – is the most important element in becoming a good musician.

Steve Vai
I’ve opened up more by traveling outside Jamaica. It helps me to grow as a person to be outside of my element; to be on my own in a strange place meeting people.

Ziggy Marley
I think actors tend to be in their element when they are pushed out of their comfort zone.

Matthew Lewis
‘Paranormal 1’ scared me because I didn’t know if it was real or what. ‘Blair Witch’ was kind of scary for the same reason. It takes the voyeur element away and makes you think, ‘Oh crap, this could really happen to me.’

Marlon Wayans
For ‘We Are the Streets,’ we’d just gotten off Bad Boy. So we were just back in our element and were going up to Powerhouse every night just creating.

We have new tools that can give the audience a sense of not only being there, which is the key element in an IMAX film, but also seeing things in a way that they won’t see on television or in feature films.

Greg MacGillivray
Food is an important element of maintaining a fitter body.

Rashami Desai
When I started at Portsmouth in 1974 there was a strong National Front element in the crowd and they would abuse me even though I played for their team. Racist abuse was part of the game and it was never challenged.

Chris Kamara
There has to be an element of risk-taking for me in my work.

Sigmar Polke
I would always contend that talent is an element, but over the long run, ultimately, a minor part of it all; it is mostly hard work.

Pat Metheny
I don’t try to sound like anyone but me anymore. If something is out of my element, I try to avoid it.

Norah Jones
The heart in man signifieth the heat or the element of fire, and it is also the heat; for the heat in the whole body hath its original in the heart.

Jakob Bohme
I’ve seen people who come to work say, ‘No, I’m doing it this way, and that’s that.’ I’m the opposite – I like being out of my element; it’s where I like to live.

Bill Hader
It’s something that you pick up at a history class in college, the idea that history and time is something to which we can’t even hold a candle to. We, as human beings, are just a small element in the overarching sweep of narrative history. That really had a profound effect on me, that realization.

David Lowery
There was a summer in college where I worked for a stretch picking up garbage at the beach. On the early shift, it was very meditative walking the shoreline and crisscrossing the sand, picking up the junk people had dropped or tossed or that the ocean had returned. And there was this strange fantasy element to it.

Nathan Englander
I think that there is an element where leadership is lonely, but I also believe that it doesn’t have to be like that.

Alicia Garza
If you think you’ve already made it, that’s when you can fall short and go backwards. I’m constantly pushing forward and chasing the element of perfection.

Jason Derulo
We’re involved in racing because there’s that element of competition. But there’s that desire to push yourself beyond the natural comfort zone and the boundaries that are preset if you like, and to be better than the rest.

Allan McNish
There’s almost an element of selfies that is like photo therapy. People look upon themselves in a picture and then they critique themselves without knowing so, and that’s what’s happening on mass on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

Nigel Barker
The sanctions have been a key element in making sure that those who have violated human rights and are guilty of corruption have a clear consequence to their actions. They have also been key to helping protect the assets of the Venezuelan people.

Juan Guaido
In every religion there is an element of the supernatural, varying with the influence of pure reason over its devotees.

Charles Eastman
There is an element of seduction in shoes that doesn’t exist for men. A woman can be sexy, charming, witty or shy with her shoes.

Christian Louboutin
If you go back to ‘Louie Louie,’ there’s the whole element there, where you need to be able to appreciate what ‘dumb’ is in its profoundness.

Lindsey Buckingham
First of all, at any company, the investment in research and development in the products is the lifeblood, so that is a critical element of anyone’s future going forward.

Stephen Elop
The only time I even entertain the tiniest element of religion is for Christmas carols.

Ian Watson
Christ does not fulfill the human element, but he certainly fulfills every other need in your life. As far as I’m concerned, there’s no better love affair.

Gloria Gaynor
The evolutionary explanation for origins, although impossible either to prove or to test scientifically, is nevertheless defended by its proponents on the basis that it is the only explanation which is naturalistic, not involving the ‘supernatural’ element of a divine Creator.

Henry M. Morris
Maybe some people are attracted to the alt-right that are homophobes, right? But that’s just like, there are certain elements of the progressive left and the hard left that attract certain element.

Steve Bannon
I’ve always been tremendously interested in criminal law. It goes to a deep interest I have in prisons and the criminal element, and what we do as a society with it. I’ve always been touched by the idea of criminality.

Elizabeth Strout
What’s special with ‘Corrie’ is that they have the comedy element, women are funny as well – they might do the emotional stuff, they might do the drama, but they’re really funny too.

Michelle Keegan
With buildering, I get to keep that element of danger. Plus, I very much like the feeling of height, and buildings have even more of a feeling of height than rock faces.

Alain Robert
I feel like Caroline Forbes is such a crucial element… on ‘The Vampire Diaries.’

Julie Plec
No one doubts the enormity of the social challenges we face around the world but one critical element of our response must be the generation of new thinking and ideas. Yet creating the conditions that make this possible is not simple.

Simon Mainwaring
When a change in how some element of one’s business is conducted becomes an order of magnitude larger than what that business is accustomed to, then all bets are off.

Andy Grove
Increased revenues, meaning higher taxes, will be a central element of any successful long-term budget plan, and President Obama is right to insist that the wealthy – the slice of America that has come through the recession in by far the best financial health – should provide those funds.

Steven Rattner
I really enjoy fishing. It’s one of those things you have to get in your element for.

Luke Kuechly
Time is the most precious element of human existence. The successful person knows how to put energy into time and how to draw success from time.

Denis Waitley
There’s always an element of truth to what I write because that’s why I write.

Lzzy Hale
What’s good is that my music is different from everyone else’s. It’s got the soul element, like Duffy, but it’s not very retro. It’s a contemporary, pop, fresh sound. That’s what makes it different.

Pixie Lott
I’d love a werebear. But I guess you need that seductive element of danger. And though bears can be dangerous, when you say werebear it just sounds kind of cuddly. Probably has a rainbow on his belly.

Kandyse McClure
I know I have this kind of teaching element in me, but I don’t want to become a ‘teacher of theater’ because that would formalize something that I’d much rather keep casual.

Richard Griffiths
I feel like no matter what I’m on, whether it’s ‘Tiny Titans’ or ‘Swamp Thing’ or ‘American Vampire,’ there will be an element of horror in it. Which would be fun for ‘Tiny Titans.’

Scott Snyder
So, rap has that quality, for youth anyway; it’s a kind of blues element. It’s physical, almost gymnastic. It speaks to you organically. Rap grows out of what young people really are today, not only black youth, but white – everybody.

Archie Shepp
I would guess that any criticism about Wal-Mart could have some element of truth with 1,500,000 people.

Lee Scott
My work is distinct and definitive and specific, and hopefully it is so that every single character is different, and they are – but there’s probably an underlying element that’s me.

Michael Keaton
The main three components are the blues, improvisation – which is some kind of element that people are trying to make it up – and swing, which means even though they’re making up music, they’re trying to make it up together. It feels great, like you’re having a great conversation with somebody.

Wynton Marsalis
It is the growth of advertising in this country which, more than any single element, has brought the American magazine to its present enviable position in points of literary, illustrative and mechanical excellence.

Edward Bok
I take music very seriously, but it’s important to me that my music is – I don’t know if ‘intuitive’ is the word, but there’s a really important element of something kind of mysterious. It’s not academic or esoteric.

Julia Holter
When you have an audience standing and screaming the entire way through the short program and cheering every element you do, whether it’s footwork, or spin, or a jump, to have that kind of emotion coming at you from every direction in the building, it’s the most amazing sensation you can get as a sportsman.

Johnny Weir
I know that the last thing a book wants is to just sit around unread, serving as an element of interior decorating. So when I have people over, all they have to do is glance at my books, and I implore them to take a few home with them. If I am really ambitious, I pack books into boxes and donate them to prisons.

Barbara Ehrenreich
We cannot therefore say that mental acts contain a cognitive as well as a conative element.

Samuel Alexander
I just like playing interesting, complex, complicated characters. I like films that also have an element of humor.

Steve Buscemi
In every tragedy, an element of comedy is preserved. Comedy is just tragedy reversed.

Wislawa Szymborska
I was in and out of Yes six times. Someone once likened it to Liz Taylor and Richard Burton’s marriage where we couldn’t live with or without each other. There’s an element of truth, and I last left in 2005.

Rick Wakeman
There’s a particularly nasty element when lots of men get together sometimes.

Emily Thornberry
When it comes to other celebrity brands, I think a lot of people do a great job, but it can’t be all about them. Everybody doesn’t want to just look like the celebrity, because they can’t. They just want one element of that style.

Jessica Simpson
Please remember that as you become a more extraordinary human being, every element of your outer world must change accordingly. Just has to. So the more remarkable you become, the more remarkable will be the professional and personal life you’ll create.

Robin S. Sharma
Berkeley had a liberal element in the student body who tended to be quite active. I think that’s in general a feature of intellectually active places.

John Searle
I was jumping out of my skin. It was horrible. I was all over the place, because I’d never been in front of a live audience. That’s a whole other element in the play, the audience.

Lorraine Bracco
Force is not inevitable. Diplomacy is still the desired means. Pressure is an element of the means.

Dennis Ross
Another unsettling element in modern art is that common symptom of immaturity, the dread of doing what has been done before.

Edith Wharton
A big element of what they regard as conformity is simply a desire to have an audience.

Karel Reisz
During the offseason, when you don’t have the worries and the grind of the games and the wear and tear of your body, you can really attack the training element a lot harder. More load on your body, more stress – whether that be through running or in the weight room with the lifting program that you’re doing at the time.

Greg Olsen
The Huashan project is a clear example of how an urban element, key to the successful growth of the city, can at the same time improve the quality of life for its citizens, thanks to an integration of all three bridges and the creation of boulevards on the banks of the canal.

Santiago Calatrava
That element of surprise is what I look for when I am writing. It is my way of judging what I am doing – which is never an easy thing to do.

V. S. Naipaul
I honestly believe that there’s an element in this country, in our politics, that does not want to see a businessman succeed at getting the nomination for the Republican party, and does not want me to succeed at becoming President of the United States of America.

Herman Cain
I love the element of surprise, throwing people off of what they think they know about what I can do and who I am. I just want to keep doing that.

Brian Tyree Henry
My perfect bag would be practical but also have the stylish element to it; it would be bold and colourful. I would actually be able to open and close it. That would be a first.

Erin O’Connor
I think, for a love story, the most important element is the music, since you don’t have action sequences or item numbers. It really draws in the audience and adds to at least 70 percent of the opening of the movie.

Ranbir Kapoor
There is also an artistic element which is lead by the film maker. Issues of what is reality and objectivity are as always relevant as someone is going to edit the film.

Ben Edwards
True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding.

Ellen G. White
Every story needs an element of suspense – or it’s lousy.

Sydney Pollack
Ronald Reagan knew audiences. It was a key element of his political genius. One of the things at which brilliant politicians are better than mediocre ones is smelling new public concerns over the horizon before they are picked up by polls – before the public even knows to call them ‘issues’ at all.

Rick Perlstein
I played semi-professionally for a season, and there’s an element of performance to being a footballer, stepping onto the pitch: you feel like a gladiator walking into a colosseum.

Callum Turner
Despite the disreputable company it keeps, bismuth is harmless. In fact, it’s medicinal: Doctors prescribe it to soothe ulcers, and it’s the ‘bis’ in hot-pink Pepto-Bismol. Overall, it seems like the most out-of-place element on the periodic table, a gentleman among scoundrels.

Sam Kean
It is energy – the central element of which is will – that produces the miracle that is enthusiasm in all ages. Everywhere it is what is called force of character and the sustaining power of all great action.

Samuel Smiles
Universal suffrage is sound in principle. The radical element is right.

Rutherford B. Hayes
Well, in The Chosen, Danny Saunders, from the heart of his religious reading of the world, encounters an element in the very heart of the secular readings of the world – Freudian psychoanalytic theory.

Chaim Potok
Life is a force in its own right. It is a new element. And it has altered the Earth. It covers Earth like a skin.

Frans Lanting
People can now get to see anything they want, in any shape or form, anywhere, on laptop, iPad or ‘phone. What’s not controllable, though, is the live element. So there’s still a real thrill for TV viewers in watching actors pulling it all together and performing live, and a real challenge for the actors.

Mel Giedroyc
If you’re speaking of love, you really must include the element of uncertainty – and perhaps it’s best approached as the art of constant maintenance.

Twyla Tharp
In our day the conventional element in literature is elaborately disguised by a law of copyright pretending that every work of art is an invention distinctive enough to be patented.

Northrop Frye
There’s an elusive element to comedy, but nobody gets it for free. That’s why comedians seldom criticise each other.

Sean Lock
The reason why time plays a great part in so many of my tales is that this element looms up in my mind as the most profoundly dramatic and grimly terrible thing in the universe.

H. P. Lovecraft
I’ve always been interested in socially political, or overtly political, comedy. And I guess I’ve always liked to channel some kind of personal element to that.

John Oliver
For ‘Ghostbusters,’ the thing that makes it such an amazing franchise and an amazing idea is that it is adds the element of physics and technology. It’s not just about ghosts. Who the heck came up with that? It is such a good idea, such a unique combination of stuff from different genres. Ghosts and sci fi.

Kate McKinnon
There are instances where you’re in a space with someone who has been extraordinarily successful, and they don’t necessarily connect with you as another person. You can be a prop for them to deliver their stuff, and you’re just another element in the scene.

Mahershala Ali
A creative element is surely present in all great systems, and it does not seem possible that all sympathy or fundamental attitudes of will can be entirely eliminated from any human philosophy.

Morris Raphael Cohen
There is always an element of play in form, however ‘serious’ the expression.

Marilyn Hacker
The human element and human judgment around understanding the physics of machines and the process, and how those come together, I think there’s going to be a balance we all need to figure out how to strike.

Jamie S. Miller
For me, appropriations bills are the glue. These are the bills that must move, no matter what, to keep the government functioning as a reliable element of our society. The Appropriations Committee shouldn’t be the most political place to be; it’s the place where we have to make the institution function for the country.

Marcy Kaptur
In a bathroom choose a bold color pattern on the tile on a feature wall. Simple changes like that add a unique element that stands out.

Drew Scott
Most people recognize that to create jobs is really the essential element in their drive against poverty.

James Wolfensohn
The most violent element in society is ignorance.

Emma Goldman
The tragic element of a character is always intriguing I think.

Greg Kinnear
There’s a lot of girls in the division I really like, but I always feel like there’s this underlying sense of a potential matchup, potential competition. It adds a different element.

Miesha Tate
I don’t think there’s any show comparable to ‘Game of Thrones’ in terms of the way it does the fantasy element to such a high standard: everything is created with so much care and detail. You really feel like you are transported into this entirely other fictional place.

Hannah Murray
