When I create a song, I immediately think about what I’m going to wear when I perform that song.

An outfit, to me, is almost a tool to express the music.
If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.
Alphonse de Lamartine
There is a new model of leadership in the world that rides on the premise that every single person in the organisation can be a leader. Titles are important for structure and order, but real power does not come from titles.

There are people in our country, in our communities who are being marginalized and discriminated against every single day. I fight for them.
I want completing the single market to be our driving mission. I want us to be at the forefront of transformative trade deals with the US, Japan and India as part of the drive towards global free trade. And I want us to be pushing to exempt Europe’s smallest entrepreneurial companies from more EU directives.
The referendum was clear: the British people voted to leave the single market and to take back control of our borders.
The amazing thing about love and attention and encouragement and grace and success and joy is that these things are infinite. We get a new supply every single morning, and so we can give it away all day. We never, ever have to monitor the supply of others or grab or hoard.
Glennon Doyle Melton
Live in the moment and make the most of every single hour that you’re alive. Like it says on the sign outside the drop zone in front of the school: No Idling.

My daughter, who is 7 years old – I have no idea where she learned this – she made a video where she’s beat-boxing. We have no idea where the beat-boxing came from, but all of a sudden, there it was.

I’ve never done a film before where every single person in the audience knows the ending. I mean suspense, twists are almost impossible these days. People are blogging your endings from their cinema seats.

Reparations, I believe, are talked about for political reasons, trying to cater for the purpose of getting votes. If Congress was serious about reparations – in ’93 and ’94 the Democrats controlled the House, the Senate and the White House, and not one single Republican vote was needed for reparations.

It is impossible, in principle, to explain any pattern by invoking a single quantity.
My grandmother told me a long time ago, ‘I don’t care if you’re sweeping a porch for a living.’ She said, ‘You need to do your best.’ So I’ve lived by that every single day.

No one does anything from a single motive.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Especially for those of us who lived in single cells, you had the time to sit down and think, and we discovered that sitting down just to think is one of the best ways of keeping yourself fresh and able, to be able to address the problems facing you, and you had the opportunity, also, of examining your past.

William H. McRaven

I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for it.

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.

Emily V. Gordon

Ida B. Wells

Many European countries, as well as Australia, Canada, Israel, and New Zealand, have adopted legislation that creates a ‘public lending right’, where the government recognises that enabling hundreds of people to read a single copy of a book provides a public good, but that doing so is likely to reduce sales of the book.
Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.

Every single art form is involved in film, in a way.
As you get older, the summer is less of a vacation and more of a training period by yourself away from the team. It’s exciting for me. I felt like I’ve been really getting better as far as my conditioning every single season as I get older.
If you wish to have free access to the single market, then you have to accept the fundamental rights as well as obligation that come from it.

We have Democrats saying dumb things every single day, and Republicans as well.
In reality, climate change is actually the biggest thing that’s going on every single day.

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
I use sunscreen every single day, even if I’m not going outside in the sun, because I’m near a window. I can always get those UV rays on my face, so I always apply sunscreen on my face and neck. It’s like brushing my teeth: I feel weird if I don’t apply sunscreen.
I never saw a bureaucracy produce a single barrel of oil.
The single most important factor in our long-term happiness is the relationships we have with our family and close friends.
Clayton M. Christensen

You’re born single, you die single, but why not being in a relationship is some special ‘single’ status, I don’t understand. Life is less stress being single, I have to admit.
I have to show off my struggle so that people accept that I’m black. No matter that every single room I go to, I’m usually the darkest person there… I kind of resent that mentality. I’m just an individual.
I’m hungry to learn, so I always have my big ears open fully, ready to learn every single minute when I play.
Every single thing you see on-screen came out of somebody’s creativity. It doesn’t exist. Nature didn’t deliver it to us. Everything had to be dreamed.
A lot of cable television is shot on a single camera. Our eyes are more trained to that. It takes the camera off the crane, away from observing the action, to becoming a character in the story along with everyone else. People are getting used to that.
A. J. Bowen
Even the government understands that the environmental challenge is so big that no single agency can handle it. It needs collaboration among all the stakeholders – companies, governments, NGOs and the public. Public accountability will be the ultimate driving force.

Even though there wasn’t much damage, it’s a disgrace that the skies over the imperial capital should have been defiled without a single enemy plane being shot down. It provides a regrettably graphic illustration of the saying that a bungling attack is better than the most skillful defense.
Sometimes I say to people, ‘Do you think you’re easy to live with?’ People who are single. And the ones who say, ‘Yeah, yeah, I’m pretty easy to live with; it’s just a question of finding the right person,’ massive alarm bell rings in my mind.
Alain de Botton
We inherit every one of our genes, but we leave the womb without a single microbe. As we pass through our mother’s birth canal, we begin to attract entire colonies of bacteria. By the time a child can crawl, he has been blanketed by an enormous, unseen cloud of microorganisms – a hundred trillion or more.
Everybody faces a blank piece of paper, no matter what they’ve written or painted or composed before. I can’t imagine approaching every single new project with-without doubt.

Stone Cold Steve Austin
I much prefer the sharpest criticism of a single intelligent man to the thoughtless approval of the masses.

Being a wife and mother are the single most important roles in my life. They take a lot of work, a lot of patience, and help from God and His Word, but if you put in the effort, it’s more fulfilling than anything on earth.
Candace Cameron Bure
The single overriding objective in wellness is creating constant personal renewal where we recognize and act on the truth that each day is a miraculous gift, and our job is to untie the ribbons. That’s the Law of Esprit: living life with joy.

It’s very difficult to change your approach to how you see yourself when you suddenly get divorced. And you have to think again, over the next few years, how you’re going to earn your income, how you’re going to run your life. You have to identify as a single mother rather than as part of a family.

Sushant Singh Rajput
I just read an 800-page history of the Scottish Enlightenment and, honestly, I may as well just start it again now, because I cannot remember a single thing. I can barely remember where Scotland is.
