There’s a tradition in the history of dissent in authoritarian countries of a certain kind of dissident, and their form of dissent is to live their lives as normally as possible.
If you normally go quiet when you get angry, you may not relate to a character that reacts very differently. But if you see someone internalising the anger like you do, you will immediately identify with him or her. It’s these small things that penetrate your psyche and make you relate at a deeper level.
Lectins bind to receptors on the surface of each cell lining the gut, breaking down the tight junctions that normally make an impenetrable barrier between the intestinal contents including bacteria and ourselves.

I’m on a group chat with my dad which he named ‘Dearest Daughter’. It’s so sweet because I don’t think he really understands that a group chat normally has more than two people but I love chatting with him in it anyway.
I normally try to ignore presidential tweets.
Egoic consciousness is the one we all normally operate with, until we are told there is something else! Every culture teaches egoic consciousness in different ways. At that level it is all about me, my preferences, my choices, my needs, my desires and me and my group as the central reference point.
I grew up as normally as any other kid. Between that small TV part I did at five and when I turned professional actor at 18, I stayed away from the limelight, so I was just like any typical kid who went to school.
Normally when we play against Brazil, we will just try to stop them from winning.
NME is normally associated with indie rock. It ain’t something I read as a kid.

When people grow up in atmospheres of violence or atmospheres of poverty, they don’t normally use hi-falutin’ language to describe those things. They would describe some brutal event the same way we would describe getting a taxi or missing the bus.

I normally don’t concern myself with, ‘Will audiences like me or like my character?’

I love keeping. I’m in the game all the time. I see angles that I wouldn’t normally see, and I feel part of what the captain does.
AB de Villiers

I never get sick normally, but having strep throat three times in four months – that’s pretty crazy.
When I have red velvet cake, I normally have cream cheese icing.
On collar wounds, we normally manage to save them, but they can take weeks to heal because they’re so deep, and they sort of grow into the flesh under the arm.
I’ve always envied people who compose music or paint, because they don’t have to be bothered with the sort of crude mess that language normally is, in everyday life and in the way we use it.
I will normally eat about seven or eight mince pies in one sitting. Sometimes, I can get to double figures. My friends, and probably most people, stop at two, so they probably dislike me a bit for it.
The addition of vinaigrette to freshly roasted vegetables gives them a freshness and juiciness they don’t normally have; the acidity brings out new shades of flavour, too.
I appreciate a lot in this life; the things you cannot buy. Life is only once. I am happy being here and all the things that are a risk I normally avoid.

At first it was a bit daunting, but once I started to do it, the more I got into it, the more I started enjoying it and being able to say things lyrically that I would normally have to say musically.
‘Eureka’ moments are very, very rare in my experience. It normally takes several weeks of experiments to tease out the truth, even when you have a really pretty good idea of what is going on.
What I’ve gathered from people who are big fans of the ‘Musketeers’, they adore the books to the degree where an awful lot of them, even if they have problems with an adaptation, normally still lap it up because they just love the whole idea of it.
Normally, I think the people you would use on your first film, it would be a real struggle to bring them with you onto your television show. I just brought every single person with and expanded my little indie film world.
My readers – and I get 400 emails for a day, my readers normally they say, well, you understand me, and I answer, you do understand me also. We are in the same level.
I normally listen to Spanish music – well, Latin music. I like a lot of singers.
The interesting thing about the miracle berry in chemo patients is that it actually straightens out their taste buds, whereas for you and I, it blocks our bitter and sour receptors. For them, it straightens them out to taste food as it normally tastes.
Normally, I bolt at the idea of playing anyone for too long because I don’t want it to become dull and like another job.

It was interesting doing impressions as somebody else doing impressions. Normally, I’ll do a voice, and it’s me doing the voice. To have to be Robin Williams doing the voice was an interesting sort of study in getting into somebody’s head.

With ‘Good Will Hunting,’ Miramax made certain the recruited audience wasn’t expecting to laugh at Robin Williams like they normally do. From my limited experience, you can really blow test screenings by conducting them in the wrong way.
Gus Van Sant
I can see there’s a connection between not following normal thinking and doing creative thinking. I wouldn’t have had good scientific ideas if I had thought more normally.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
If I was making the decision normally, with my heart, I’d never leave Celtic. My life was great. I loved the city. I loved the people. I loved the club. I had a wonderful life. If you think of all those things, you’d never move.
When people laugh at me, they are not laughing in the way that they normally would at a comedian. They are laughing with relief, because the truth has been spoken, and political correctness has not strangled this particular gigastar.

What we normally define as history doesn’t interest me. It’s a constraint.
Silverstone is normally quite a tricky place for the set-up and for finding a good balance, because you have a big difference between the low-speed and high speed corners, and there are not really any medium-speed corners in between.
The ratio of celebrity divorces is probably about the same as non-celebrity divorces; it’s just that the non-celebrity divorces don’t get a lot of public scrutiny, normally.
No one with a body full of aliments can have a luminous soul and other intellectual faculties. It is necessary to care for the body if we wish the spirit to function normally.

Ukip had undertaken a survey on why people wanted to leave the E.U. or not, and they also had membership data. So we were able to build personas out of that. That was work that would normally be paid for.
Now, normally I do all my research on existing recipes before I start working on my own version.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
As a young person, and I know it’s hard to believe that I was shy, but you could take your camera, and it would take you to places: it was like having a friend, like having someone to go out with and look at the world. I would do things with a camera I wouldn’t do normally if I was just by myself.
Normally, I would run with a group of guys in my camps. A couple of days before the fight, I would run by myself. That was my time to choreograph the fight in my head, so I needed to be myself.

Normally the biggest stars, as Wayne Rooney is, are selfish but he is not.
I always like surprising people and doing things at a young age and, I don’t know, trying to do them at a higher caliber than what you’d normally think. I’m not saying I’m a virtuoso, but I always challenge myself.
I’m not normally a jewelry person. I’m supposed to be a working class champion and all, and I don’t like to rub my success in people’s faces.
As a DP who mostly does features, I’m normally in a director’s pocket, 24/7.
I can act normally, and I can go out, but people around you don’t act normally. If it was normal, I’d go out and have my dinner and nobody would be video-phoning me eating my dinner.

One of the nice things about licensing music to movies or advertisements is you can reach a lot of people who normally wouldn’t hear music.

Normally, when people compose for film, you give them the film, and they look at it, and they compose it.
But that’s something that I like about scoring film: it makes me reach out of the parameters of my self, it requires me to do things musically that I wouldn’t normally do left to my own devices.
If I were trying to impress a girl, I wouldn’t get all super dressed because I would look like I was trying too hard. Instead, I would probably wear what I normally would.
Most shows are normally 40 or 50 pages.
In the corporate world, there’s, like, a 300 percent markup. In our world, we normally don’t go above a 100 percent markup.
I don’t get angry very often. I lose my temper rarely. And when I do, there’s always a legitimate cause. Normally I have a great lightness of being. I take things in a very happy, amused way.
I love graffiti because it enables kids from every social extraction to do something that brings them closer to art, when they normally wouldn’t be stimulated to be visually creative. Graffiti helps to develop an awareness of immediate expressive and uncontrolled freedom.
I’m just chilled out, you’ll always catch me in a mad tracksuit. Normally a black tracksuit, I’m not really an out there person.
I am normally the manly-ish girl on the planet.
I like to see people laugh who are normally serious.
We try not to flaunt our family too much. I know it works for some people, but while our children are small I want them to grow up quietly and normally.
Normally, you want the river when the water is low and not when it’s flooded. For example, there are parts of the Amazon where the water goes up to 15 meters high. This floods the forest, so a lot of the fish that normally stay close together are suddenly very hard to find.
I am normally afraid of birds and have never dreamt of any bird in my life.
Normally, Celtic dominate in their own league but it’s difficult to get good results in Europe.
Frank de Boer
I’m a person who likes these sort of movies… sad but moving ‘art movies’ that normally are at a festival and then they go to a small art house theater and disappear.
Normally, I only put on a little foundation and I think that’s because I wear make-up for work so much. I am a big fan of mascara though.
If you think of a solo artist, you normally know them by their name; you don’t normally describe their kind of music. You just say, ‘It’s so and so, or it’s so and so.’ But with bands, everyone feels an obligation to categorize them.
In Kannada cinema, the introduction song for the hero is normally, as we call it, a massy commercial number.
Normally when I train, I’m all mad, thinking about all I’ve been through to push me.
For ‘Vikings,’ we have to do so much outside shooting, and it’s normally – I think with American shows, it’ll be 60 or 70 percent inside and a little bit outside, but with us, it’s almost 70 percent outside, and that’s huge and really difficult.
In the work that I normally do, you have a whole script, a whole arc, that you play. And I do believe a good actor will play every bit of information they’re given.
Normally, my digital peregrinations take me to destinations like Facebook, YouTube, and boingboing.net.
I’m a cynical person who’s normally attracted to the dark side of things.
Normally, a TV show shoots episodically.
Children should be kept as normal as possible. At a very young age, they are not even aware of the happenings around them. You need to do whatever you can to grow them normally.
Chase scenes normally just have to be exciting and, you know, not a lot of emotion you need to go through. It’s just about getting from A to B with as much excitement as you can.
What’s amazing with ‘The X Factor’ is that it gives people a chance who wouldn’t normally have one. I couldn’t go on it, because it would be, like, me being lazy, because I’ve definitely had my opportunities.
I just essentially stayed at home for three years and just learned to play as many instruments as I could and listened to as many singers as I could. Like, when I got to about 19/20, I started listening to singers. I normally just listened to bands. Now I listen to a lot of old singers, not a lot of new stuff.
James Vincent McMorrow
Normally skeptical journalists routinely give renewables a pass. The reason isn’t because they don’t know how to report critically on energy – they do regularly when it comes to non-renewable energy sources – but rather because they don’t want to.
Normally, I play in midfield where I’m challenging the players and trying to take the ball.
I think competition turns people into what they normally wouldn’t be.
Normally, a loss, it’s hard to swallow, but you get over it sooner or later.
Eleven years old is not an early age to set your sight on the Olympics for a gymnast, because we normally peak in high school. I first qualified for the Olympics team during my sophomore year in high school, when I was 15 years old.
You do nonfiction, you get to meet people you would not normally meet.
John Gregory Dunne
Devon holds a special place in my heart. As a child, I normally went on holiday to Bantham and have lots of happy memories from my time there. I used to catch sand eels in the early morning and go fishing for bass throughout the day. I remember a gull taking my bait.
Humor disarms people. It opens them up to starting a dialogue about things they wouldn’t normally talk about. I don’t understand how people who don’t have a sense of humor get through life.
Normally I tell the truth whether it’s nice or not.
Everyone wants to play. If you don’t, normally you’re not happy.
I do love Louboutin shoes, but I need to stop buying them because I don’t go to many ‘dos,’ so they just line up. I’m normally in my trainers.
My idea about the role of artists is to get people to look at things in a way that’s different than the way they normally would if they are being told how to think, what to do. I think when people receive information through art, they are more open-minded.
It’s about me doing me, about me being organic. I can’t wear things and put on a front and say I like something when I don’t. I won’t wear something I wouldn’t normally wear just for people to like it or for people to look at me like this or that in fashion.
P. J. Tucker
I like to drive everywhere, so I normally like to sing out loud in my car where nobody else can hear me.
Normally, whenever I try to photograph my mother, she is extremely impatient and will only stand for a minute and insists on knowing exactly what I’m doing.
Normally, I would seek to compromise, but not on immigration policy.
Often my best work comes from somebody trying to stretch me in a direction that I wouldn’t normally want to go in. It’s not something I fight at all.
My looks vary, but I definitely think about it and plan. I like to shop, too, so I’m always mixing it up. But normally, I’ll be wearing something like a college T-shirt and a sweater, something like that. But I definitely have to plan.
J. R. Smith
I don’t usually see my type for on-camera stuff as a series regular. Normally, my type is the janitor, the secretary, the cop, or the nurse.
Donna Lynne Champlin
Boxing’s not going to retire me; I’ll retire from boxing. That’s where most people make mistakes. They normally stay in the game a bit too long.
The wish fulfillment of growing younger is not necessarily all it’s cracked up to be. You have new problems that arise which you are not anticipating and you deal with the same problems you would deal with if you were ageing normally: what is the end of life about? What have I accomplished?
Pilot season’s such a strange time. You get such a concentrated amount of scripts. A lot of them become white noise after a while. When something really pops, it becomes apparent very quickly. I’m quite instinctive about that. I know, normally by about 10 pages in, whether I want to do something or not.
I had a big Akita, Yoshi, who was fabulous. I loved him. We lost him when he was 12, and I’ve never been able to replace him. Normally, most people lose a pet and get another and keep going on. But it just felt wrong to me; it felt disloyal.
I think we mixed a lot more curveballs than normal because they were either going after my drop or laying off of it and that’s normally my go-to (pitch).
Playing Mo-yeon was satisfying because I could be irritable. I normally can’t be like that in public because of my image.
I’m normally a really humble guy.
Only teams with style succeed. But, in the end, success is normally what matters in modern Europe.

I love audiences. They are my oxygen. I only breathe with audience. When I’m alone, I am normally a miserable you-know-what.
Bruce Willis is Bruce Willis in every single movie I’ve seen him in, except ‘Death Becomes Her’ and ‘Mortal Thoughts,’ which is another movie he was in that was very different from what he normally does.
It’s heartbreaking for the people who work behind the scenes. A lot of people who are at clubs normally get affected by relegation. We feel sorry for them.
Normally, I never listen to the people who speak about me.
David de Gea
Normally I’m not like a big TV person. I never use my DVR.
A lot of people who don’t write for kids think it’s easy, because they think kids aren’t as smart as they are, or that you have to dumb down what you would normally write for kids. But I think you have to work harder when you write for kids, to make sure every word is right, that it’s there for the right reason.
Normally, I spend a week on the outline and take two weeks to write the book.
R. L. Stine
People get excited around me and behave differently than they would normally. I don’t feel different from anyone else, except that I drive a racing car round in circles faster than somebody else.
I’ve been in public life for long enough that I know you just have to live your life normally.
Normally, improving contrast sensitivity means using glasses or surgery to correct the eye. But we’ve found that action video games train the brain to process visual information more efficiently and improve vision.
Normally, I can get through a whole show with one guitar pick.
I tend to focus on young people and on giving a voice to groups of people who don’t normally get their voices heard.
I don’t normally get too excited. I just – yeah, I just try and keep it pretty simple, and that’s just my personality, really.
Normally, people give up parliament because they want to do more business or spend more time with family. My wife said ‘why don’t you say you’re giving up to devote more time to politics?’. And it is what I have done.
I’m not really making decisions that people normally expect.
In earlier comics, my only priority was telling a joke in the last panel, but now I try to make every panel as interesting as possible, and that normally means at least a li’l joke there.
When we do reggae, it’s normally a one-chord or a two-chord, or whatever it is. With Sting, there’ll be chord changes, key changes.
Political disagreements have the colour and fragrance that normally is seen and felt in a political bouquet, while remaining united on one issue that democracy is the future of Pakistan.
Asif Ali Zardari
Normally, young writers have all the time in the world and they don’t always use it well.
When you get in some people minds, they won’t think how they normally would.
I normally start at the computer with something really simple like a four-bar loop of a drum sample or a bass line. And then I just start adding layers of synthesizers.
Normally doing an album you go from track to track and go, ‘Let’s not work on this one today, let’s go work on the other one,’ and I think you tend to get more self-indulgent that way.
Because normally with Western cuisine, you’ll serve vegetables separate from the meat, so kids will eat the meat and never touch the vegetables.
I hate how old people get in my way when I’m swimming. You’re trying to get into the zone and normally, if there’s someone faster than you, you get out of the way, but old people don’t; they’re like, you can go round me. I give a little tut when I pass them.
Normally I provide a lot of assists and do a lot of dribbling – but it’s always great when you score a goal.
The Democratic Republic of Congo was the most unbelievable place I have ever seen. Now, I’m not normally a massive fan of landscapes, but the country was just so so stunning!
Normally when I do an album, I have a concept behind it.
It’s better to not overthink and let things happen normally instead.
A top-class striker normally plays up on his toes, so he can sprint or go for every ball that falls in his direction.
Marco van Basten
Normally, I have a lot of alpha readers on my books. These are people that, once I finish a novel, I let them look at it and give me a reader response.
Normally, you should be dead if you have a retrospective.
Normally in life there are all these distractions but in lockdown all that stuff was gone. You were forced to just sit and think. Creatively, it had its benefits.
I like listening to people talk about things that they love. They get to express things they don’t normally get to express.
A great tennis career is something that a 15-year-old normally doesn’t have. I hope my example helps other teens believe they can accomplish things they never thought possible.
When I first met my wife, I really just settled down quite a bit and I started living a much cleaner lifestyle. I was able to concentrate on things that I neglected in the past a little more and I was spending a lot more time at home than I normally would.
I would normally never set out to write a trilogy.
For me, a holiday is doing something else apart from what I normally do.
I have gained value like an antique. If there is an ’80s event, I normally get the call and that is a nice problem to have.
If I’m DJing a show, I will normally wear the designer I’m DJing for; if I’m DJing a party, I will most likely be wearing very high heels.
In Hollywood, normally things don’t work out, and dreams are crushed.
Jessica St. Clair
Normally I don’t feel like having a belly full of pasta.
Normally when I work with bands I’m trying to refine and improve what’s already there.
I look forward to going to Chicago because it’s where I grew up, and the food there is so munch. Especially during the winter, I get deep dish pizza or Italian beef, and it warms me up. It’s something I don’t normally get, especially here in L.A. where you’re always trying to be healthy.
Normally, ‘Saturday Night Live’ is about as entertaining as an ocular migraine.
It just depends on what’s asked of me, but normally I’m looking to make the right, easy play. So if I can get a teammate a layup, if I can get him an open shot, I just think that gets the ball moving and I feel like it makes everybody feel good and we get into a better offensive rhythm.
I normally don’t listen to my instincts because I’m so full of doubt.
Normally, what I do for fun is just nothing. I try to just relax. Normally, it involves just relaxing and reading and maybe going out and meeting up with a friend. I live a very simple existence. I would much rather just sit around and listen to a couple of records and read the paper.
I’ve been successful, but I haven’t had any unwanted attention. To be honest, I’ve never invited or courted attention. I think if you act normal, then people will treat you normally. If you go around with a big entourage all the time, you’re not staying true to yourself.
For me I normally rise up to a Paralympics, I love those pressured environments.
We’re not a city that has normally relied on major corporations. It doesn’t mean that we don’t want to have major anchor tenant corporations in our city. We love to have them, but for whatever reason we’ve been a city that’s been very entrepreneurial.
Francis X. Suarez
It’s things I wouldn’t normally do in my real life, so when I go to work and get to beat people up and shoot guns and get waterboarded, those are things I find completely interesting.
Normally, ‘black responsibility’ is a forbidden phrase for a black leader — not because blacks reject responsibility, but because even the idea of black responsibility weakens moral leverage over whites.
Normally in the past whenever Everton have beaten Liverpool, the accusation was that they wanted it a little bit more.
It’s a quiet life. Normally it’s training, house, gym.
Any rehearsal process – I find, anyway – does have quite an effect on me, and I very much live in that world for the whole period of time that I’m involved with the production. But normally, afterwards with a little bit of space, I can come right back out of it again.
Directing all six episodes was a really unique experience, right? Because normally TV is run through the showrunner system, and Marvel didn’t do that on ‘Loki.’
People don’t normally just say, ‘Do you want to come and audition for one of your favorite directors?’
Normally, the law of nature is such that one who rises falls, and one who rises quickly falls as quickly. I don’t know how the law of nature will work as far as Modi is concerned. But some time or the other, all bubbles burst. This bubble will also burst.
I don’t normally do pure historical work.
Since becoming a pop star, I’ve experimented a lot more. I’ve gotten more creative with what I wear. My stylist is a bit more adventurous than I would normally be, but it’s really worked, and the colours really work together. I think everyone should be a bit more confident: if it’s a summer’s day, wear some bright colours.
People sometimes get a little extra criticism when they try something that they don’t normally do, but I think that’s just a natural thing for artists. It’s like, ‘Okay, I did that, and now I want to try this.’
Normally, I work 18 hours a day.
Normally I don’t race other people; I challenge the environment and my own limitations.
Lewis Gordon Pugh
When I got on stage, I would have a rush of adrenaline; everybody gets it. Normally after the first night it becomes more controllable, and as long as I could ride the wave, I was still in charge.
I don’t normally look like a twig and I do eat like a pig but the weight has just dropped off me.
That’s what fascinates me about these writers’ retreats: You’re in these small spaces with small groups of people, and all of the sudden, the spotlight is shining on you harder than it normally is.
Normally in dangerous situations I have a getaway car.
Sacha Baron Cohen
What is normally called religion is what I would tend to call music – participating in music, listening to music, making records and singing.
What I normally do with long scenes is that I understand the emotional content and the words fall into place.
Normally, I have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the festive spirit. I’m not a Scrooge. But when I was growing up, Christmas didn’t begin until mid-December.
I really dislike it when the media asks young actresses, normally when they’re about 23, how they feel about ageing. There are other things to worry about.
You don’t normally see incredibly ugly people who’ve gone missing and it becomes a sensation.
Normally my films have a single thread of an emotion, an insight or one single belief, and then I turn the entire story and build it around that.
Normally I don’t sleep much during a Test match.
I normally don’t wake up until 1 P.M. and I’m not about to screw with my biorhythm.
All syncopation means is accenting beats that you don’t normally accent.
Normally, I never dress up.
Normally we go in, we do a series and then that’s it, we’re axed!
I normally try to drive carefully.
I’m normally not really an angry person. Maybe some other people have a different opinion.
Normally book ideas come to me in a moment.
Normally, when someone we love is turning away from a struggle, we self-protect by also turning away. That’s definitely my first response. I think change is more likely to happen if both partners have common language and a shared lens to see problems.
Normally, if you go through a game without attracting attention, you are doing a hell of a job.
I normally go through every single line as part of my warm-up before a show. When I’m working on a film or TV programme, there often isn’t a rehearsal, so I tend to learn my lines much later. They are often shorter, too, so they’re essentially just there.
I read a lot of news online, but I like buying a paper because I’ll read an article I wouldn’t normally read. And more often than not, the articles that you don’t expect to care about are the ones that grab you.
Eddie Kaye Thomas
For me, personally, when I’m afraid of something – when you’re afraid of something, normally you try to go away, you try to avoid it. Instead of avoiding it, to overcome your fear, I believe you need to embrace it.
One of the standard story-generating engines for science fiction is to take something we normally think of as metaphoric and treat it as if it were literal.
Robert J. Sawyer
There’s an authenticity in just being who you are and not having an act about it or wear clothes you normally wouldn’t wear. I’m just comfortable in my own skin.
Normally I get called Sammi Sweetheart on a daily basis.
Normally, when you do a movie, you have those mundane days when it’s like, ‘Today is the scene where I get coffee.’
I do explore the city if I have the time for it, but normally, I would rather stay relaxed at home. London can be a stressful place because it’s crowded and it’s a big city.
Do I think it is good policy for the government to own companies? Normally, I’d say ‘no.’ But in my world, if a firm puts itself in a position that it needs a last minute rescue, and the future is uncertain at best, then the investor who steps into that breach ends up owning the company. Full stop.
We shoot with three cameras, try to shoot both sides of coverage if possible. That allows the actors to overlap and to find moments that feel more authentic and real than what you sometimes would normally get in a scripted drama that’s shot more classically. And that’s something in ‘Parenthood’ that has evolved.
One very important side of my playing lies in rhythm; I have a very percussive style. It’s one I’ve developed with Dream Theater over the years, and requires the guitar to be very locked into the rhythm of the drums… way more than what would normally entail.
Normally I sit there in the films really hating watching myself. Loving watching the films, hating watching myself.
The Bushes were certainly part of Texas in their mind, but they didn’t have the kind of political flavor that you normally find in Texas politicians. It’s just Texas is such a unique place to itself that politically, at least so far, they haven’t found anybody to play nationally.
Courage comes normally to me.
Melody has a certain way that it projects back to you. It triggers certain nerves in your body and certain instincts that normally wouldn’t be triggered by a normal voice.
I love growing older. Normally, I don’t bother with make-up. This face in the mirror is changing. I’ve got new lines from smiling at the sprog so much.
Normally for me, it’s not interesting. When do you see in the jungle, female fighters fighting each other? I mean it’s not human nature.
Normally, if you play a part, you have the words, and you invent the personality out of your experience, your knowledge – your life, in a way.
Normally as a director, you do look at other films and things that are relevant. But with this film, it became impossible because I became so aware of the camera placement.
The term ‘triage’ normally means deciding who gets attention first.
A politician normally flatters you in your face and criticises you behind your back.
The popularity of ‘2 Dope Queens’ just showed there was like a hunger for new stories because we have alternative comics on our show that wouldn’t normally be featured on, like, a white guy’s comedy show.
Gravity Falls’ normally follows very particular rules: we start out in reality close to the world as we know it, usually one magical element presents itself, and then it’s essentially vanished or hidden back to where it came from by the end of the 20 minutes.
Normally, people would spend thousands to watch a trashy film in a multiplex, but not shell out a few bucks to watch a play. But in bigger cities, we are more likely to find a bigger section of people who would want to watch a play.
There’s always been a lot of interest in the tech community about how to foster innovation and creativity – both within a company but also in the ecosystem of a tech cluster. In both cases, creating opportunities for people who don’t encounter each other normally to meet and talk is key.
I would say that normally it is the creative minorities that determine the future, and in this sense, the Catholic Church must understand itself as a creative minority that has a heritage of values that are not things of the past, but a very living and relevant reality.
Pope Benedict XVI
Normally, the path is you get mentored by a chef and they take you under their wing and then they help you open a restaurant. But that path doesnt exist for most people of color.
Brain cells are normally not sensitive to light. So by introducing light-sensitive proteins into specific types of neurons, we can now selectively control that specific type of neuron by shining light in the brain.
I normally work out six days a week. I’ll do Pilates on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and I’ll do cardio on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Normally I start with a plot, and write a synopsis, and the ideas come from the construction.
I believe in method acting. Whenever I’m working on a character, I start behaving like him. I start doing these things which the character would normally do. Maybe that’s the way I function as an actor, and I believe in it. And that’s how I try and portray a character.
My children aren’t normally allowed to watch a lot of things that I’m in.
On ‘Handmaid’s’ you are given complete freedom – unlike some shows where you’re really expected just to ‘fold in’ and ‘deliver the script’ and ‘put the camera where we normally put the camera.’
I love buying things I wouldn’t normally buy, especially cigars.
Our songs aren’t metaphorical, normally: they’re literal in their interpretation.
Normally I’m the type who wouldn’t bail on a responsibility unless dead on the side of the road, and I believe deeply in the importance of continuing to follow our own paths.
Laura van den Berg
The thing I’m afraid of the most with the 800m is injuries. That’s why I don’t normally like to run in a group: I prefer to be in front, just in case someone pushes me with their spikes. I don’t like stuff like that.
Being ‘Strictlyfied’ is the opposite to who I am normally, but on this show, you definitely have to go with the flow.
The use of drones is rapidly transforming the way we go to war. On the battlefield, a squad leader can receive real-time data from a drone that enables him to view the landscape for miles in every direction, dramatically expanding the capabilities of what would normally have been a small and isolated unit.
Normally, I rely heavily on my director to massage me out of my actor comfort zones.
‘Star Trek’ put sci-fi on the map and changed television, and ‘Battlestar’ has changed it in another direction by making it a little more mainstream and acceptable to people who wouldn’t normally watch sci-fi.
When I was much younger, I realized that when I was handling something very large, and I was on my own doing that, that my breathing rate would increase, and that would affect my ability to think as well as I normally would. So when that starts happening, I slow down.
Stephen A. Schwarzman
Normally, a goalkeeper has to be a perfect man. All my mistakes are visible so I have to keep my concentration all the time.
P. R. Sreejesh
I do always the music before the lyrics. The story or an idea for the lyrics appears during the composing process normally, but some other times I already have a strong idea of the story I would like to sing before any music comes to my mind.
Well, I’m not a violent person. You have to back off. People sometimes will try you and try you until you try not to, but you have to react. Normally, I just walk away.
I’m not normally the kind of person who holds on to grudges, I’m really not.
Normally, people think of Asian women as timid, but I think I’m very strong.
What I normally do before going on stage is pray – normally we do a group prayer with the crew or whoever is around, like our security guard, our tour manager and whoever else is back there and wants to pray with us.
I think that when you’re writing fiction what you’re doing is reflecting life as you see it, and putting down how you think and how other people think, and the sort of confusions that you don’t normally like to admit to.
In my horror movies, I was always trying to deal with real characters and real character drama played by good actors… Laura Linney, Ethan Hawke, Eric Bana, and Tom Wilkinson, people who don’t do horror normally.
As a tennis player, normally you lose almost every week.
We hope to win over new listeners who would normally never listen to an Aly & AJ record. That’s our greatest expectation we’ve set for ourselves.
I used to try and make up visually for what I couldn’t play as a musician. I used to get into very incredible visual things where, in order just to make one chord more lethal, I’d make it a really lethal looking thing, whereas really it’s just going to be picked normally.
Normally, an actress has to work to bring out her male side. In our case, the dynamic is reversed. The actor playing her modelled himself on Sharon Stone.
Normally, if I would read in a script that there’s mostly flashbacks and mostly voiceover, I would run as far away as possible.
It’s a lot of fun to play someone you don’t normally think of yourself as.
Normally, you go into the recording studio, make a record and then take it on the road and you think… wow… I could have done THIS to it, or something.
When you are winning games in a row, normally what the people say about you is good.
I didn’t care about anyone or listen to nobody, only my father or mother. I would fight my coaches and say: ‘Who are you to scream or shout at me? Are you my dad? Talk to me normally.’
In film, normally what happens is that not many people work more than once. Normally, it breaks couples. It doesn’t make them.
I thought that, as a black audience member, I would like to see something that reflected an experience that’s not normally exhibited in documentaries, or is so much about black people as victims in this country, and black people not taking control of their own lives and their own destinies.
I don’t normally take to Yorkshiremen.
We rarely just hate people or love people. Normally, the people we have moments of the most impassioned hate for, it’s because we love them so much.
The race for the White House is normally an event suffused with drama, sucking eyeballs to the page all over the globe.
I went to film school so I have a writing and directing background, and I think a lot of the material I’m interested in writing and getting out there is stories about anti-heroes and people you should just not ordinarily root for – trying to figure out a way of appealing to people they wouldn’t normally appeal to.
You see, ‘The Look of Silence’ is the first film ever made where survivors confront perpetrators who still hold a monopoly on power. It’s normally never done because it is too dangerous.
Normally, I just sit in my quiet little room and do the small things that bring me pleasures. I read my books, I answer email, I write a little bit.
Since the beginning of the Bush administration when we were attacked, September 11th, we’ve not had any major terrorist attack in this country. We’ve had individual crazy people, of normally, they look more like me than they look like Middle Easterners.
To be honest, I don’t have a particular recipe, but I normally start with the chord progression and then I build it from there. I listen to a lot of jazz, so the chords are really important to me.
Governors normally have jurisdiction over public health emergencies, but a widespread biological attack would cross state boundaries.
I like young players when they are still open to learn and behave normally, not driving a Porsche after three matches in the first team.
Normally when I read, I don’t like music playing.
We shot on location in our very first weeks, in our very first shows. I would like to go on location again, Hawaii would be good!! But normally, we tape five days a week in the studio starting at about 8:00 a.m. and continuing until about 8:00 p.m.
China, as a nation, is a country under the one-party rule of the Communist Party, but it has introduced the market economy. As a country that is under the one-party rule of the Communist Party, normally what they should be seeking is equality of results.
Normally you read a screenplay – and I read a lot of them – and the characters don’t feel like people. They feel like plot devices or cliches or stereotypes.
Breathing in, I am aware of my heart. Breathing out, I smile to my heart and know that my heart still functions normally. I feel grateful for my heart.
Thich Nhat Hanh
I don’t pay attention to which foot I’m developing. I just train normally and use both feet. I’d say I’m right-footed.
I love going to conventions, and I love spending time with the fans and going to parts of the world where I wouldn’t normally go.
I don’t actually go to that many conferences. I do that a couple of times a year. Normally, I am not recognized; people don’t throw their panties at me. I’m a perfectly normal person sitting in my den just doing my job.
I like it when people make an effort to wear things that you wouldn’t normally put together – I like eccentrics.
Bat for Lashes
I normally write on acoustic guitar, although piano is the instrument that I actually studied. Occasionally, I’ll write on the piano or sometimes with no instrument at all.
All we think about is how to keep the audience engaged, and normally we’re big on plot because that’s the easy way to do it.
Sevilla, in general, usually show up well against Madrid, both at the Pizjuan and the Bernabeu. Normally, they are very attractive matches with a lot of goals.
The good Lord didn’t see fit to put oil and gas only where there are democratically elected regimes friendly to the United States. Occasionally we have to operate in places where, all considered, one would not normally choose to go. But we go where the business is.
But I never worried about having a child in my 40s, which is unusual – normally, I’m the queen of worry.
The genuine artist is never ‘true to life.’ He sees what is real, but not as we are normally aware of it. We do not go storming through life like actors in a play. Art is never real life.
I didn’t try to be a tough guy. I didn’t try to be a big mobster. I was who I was. I didn’t stop doing what I normally did. I worked out. I lifted weights. I ran. That’s what I usually did.
Joseph D. Pistone
It’s always a lot more fun as a quarterback if you can do things you don’t normally get to do. So if I can catch a pass and make a play for the team, that’s what I’m willing to do.
Robert Griffin III
I’m not going to normally get hired to play those emotional things, and I’m capable of it. I was raised by a single mother in Iowa – I’m just trapped in a big, dumb body.
I normally wear jeans and sneakers, but given an occasion, I enjoy dressing up.
I’m not scared of any other player, but I normally know the quality of the others and try to be ready before the game. But I don’t forget my own style to play soccer.
It is strange how your understanding of a play changes. It normally happens after a performance and you suddenly think, ‘So that’s what that line really means’ – it’s like a light going on.
I’m tempted to say that Conservative governments are normally elected to clear up the mess left by Labour governments.
When I’m training for a fight, I’m not the same person that I normally am when I’m at home. I’m always thinking about fighting. I’m doing it day in and day out. Pretty soon, my personality starts to change. My temper’s a little bit shorter, I don’t have a lot of patience for a lot of things.
Where two or more crops are taken normally, it is time to begin preparation for a good rabi crop by assembling the seeds, soil nutrients, and other agronomic inputs needed for timely sowing and good plant population.
M. S. Swaminathan
I am not an early bird. I go to bed normally between midnight and 1 o’clock, so it is understandable that I cannot be an early bird. I wake up around 9 o’clock.
Since ‘School of Rock’ opened, for the first time in my career, ever, really, I’ve had a lot of projects offered to me. It’s extraordinary. Normally, I’ve initiated them all myself.
Andrew Lloyd Webber
Daft Punk wouldn’t have normally fit into anything that was pop on the radio, but they just did it.
I’m bored, normally, when I travel.
Normally when you write for an orchestra, you think about melody and harmony and countermelody.
We need to bring music to the people, even to those who normally do not listen to classical music.
I am not normally a betting person, but I say that putting your money on the American people is about as close to a sure bet as you are going to get.
I suffer from an amazing amount of insecurities, and I’m grateful that my body image, it’s normally not something I pay attention to.
I am appalled to hear the defence of the niqab or burka in Europe. A bizarre political correctness has tied the tongues of those who would normally rally to defend women’s rights but who are now instead sacrificing those very rights in the name of fighting an increasingly powerful right wing.
While I know some women who are stunningly sanguine when they’re pregnant, I dissolve into a total mess. What normally appears sturdy turns fragile: the economy, the climate, humanity’s baseline social contract.
I’m not normally content with what I do unless I win.
In two days, it’s hard to to get the quality you would normally want for a design project.
Actors normally go to the gym to achieve a certain kind of fitness for a role but when you start playing a sport, then you realise that being athletically fit is a very different kind of fitness.
Tahir Raj Bhasin
Pogba is a midfielder who has all the qualities. When you are a midfielder you normally have some special qualities but he has everything.
Most period drama is so earnest. A lot of it is about making yourself take seriously things you wouldn’t normally.
As far as I’m concerned, I want to do everything because life is short. So, when I did ‘The Red Violin’ film, I got to go to the Oscars, and I got to meet Samuel Jackson, and I got to do stuff that one wouldn’t normally do in my world.
For me, writing a novel is like having a dream. Writing a novel lets me intentionally dream while I’m still awake. I can continue yesterday’s dream today, something you can’t normally do in everyday life.
We were told by President Obama that in respect of international trade, we would have to get to the back of the queue – not a position that America normally requires the United Kingdom to be in when it comes to other matters, such as the Iraq War.
It’s really fun to put yourself into a character – into shoes you wouldn’t normally be in.
I often say in my speeches, I say, ‘It’s rare in life that you get a controlled scientific experiment.’ ‘Cause you can’t do controlled scientific experiments with real people, normally.
I normally don’t do interviews on the road.
Normally, the action is just a gratuitous thing. In the case of Bourne, he was going to learn about himself in the action scenes.
I enjoy working with Melissa a great deal. We’re always looking for projects to do together. I was happy to have her do the show, because she doesn’t normally do episodic unless she’s starring, and I was very happy with the results.
You need to eat normally and healthfully, and you need to exercise. I’m so passionate about this because I think people spend their lives not happy in their bodies.
I’m not normally very adventurous with food.
Normally, if I’ve got an audition, I’m punctual, I’ve learnt my lines, and I’ll go looking smart.
I was called a terrorist yesterday, but when I came out of jail, many people embraced me, including my enemies, and that is what I normally tell other people who say those who are struggling for liberation in their country are terrorists.
I’m not a big crier normally, but when I see people having life-changing experiences on reality shows, that’s a different story.
Normally our season is seven weeks in the Drama Theatre and four weeks in the Opera Theater.
A lot of stuff doesn’t faze me. I think it’s because I was brought up in a small town, and normally, when you’re from a small town, when you see a famous person, you’d be like, ‘Oh my god. This never happens,’ but I’ve always kind of been like nonchalant.
Normally, in a film with lots of twists and turns, half of them don’t make sense; they’re just there for their own sakes.
The Federal Highway Administration has allowed states to take advantage of a loophole in federal regulations, delaying bridge inspections to every four years instead of the two years normally required.
It’s important to have people around you with enough confidence to say if you are not acting in a good way. Normally, when you are at the top, people say everything is fantastic. Probably in that moment it is what you want to hear, but it’s best to be reminded how to act properly.
See, if there is zero possessiveness in a relationship, then one needs to put a reality check to see if things are really going fine. So, normally, everyone is a bit possessive, and so am I.
I normally take a long time finding titles. I finish the book and go into sweats for months afterwards trying to think of them.
‘Laguna Beach’ was definitely not as manufactured as ‘The Hills’ was for me. ‘Laguna Beach’ was more putting us in situations where we normally wouldn’t be in or hanging out with people we wouldn’t necessarily hang out with.
With the ‘Born This Way’ album, generally we said, how do we find strategic partners that can help us with our vision? Part of that is about putting the music in places people wouldn’t normally put music, like with Google and with Gilt.
Normally the amount of music we have is what you hear on the album and that’s it.
The majority of the time having first touches, when the ball comes to you, you’re normally free so you’ve got time to control, but as a centre forward, you’ve got to be able to ride it. You’ve got to tense your body, but then have your foot be soft enough to control the ball, as well.
Not everything, always, is about your performance. It’s about the team performance. When the team is not playing well, then normally, you will not play well. It’s all about the team.
To express to you in mere words, our personal feelings on this occasion you must know to be impossible, and particularly so for one who normally has to describe only things outside himself.
Normally with film, it’s normal for the screenwriter to never be seen again after finishing until the premiere.
I honestly believe that you have to be able to play the guitar hard if you want to be able to get the whole spectrum of tones out of it. Since I normally play so hard, when I start picking a bit softer my tone changes completely, and that’s really useful sometimes for creating a more laid-back feel.
What sets ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ apart is Riggs’s use of ‘found’ photographs as a spark of inspiration for the narrative. ‘Found’ describes art created from common objects that are not normally considered art.
When I get tired, I start eating things that I wouldn’t normally crave, like biscuits, because they’ll give me a bit of energy to keep going.
I believe in eating everything and love my rice and sweets. And eating it without guilt and worry… I feel that’s the best way to digest food. I don’t ever do a rigorous dieting normally.
I’m interested in what would normally be considered the worst aspects of commercial art. I think it’s the tension between what seems to be so rigid and cliched and the fact that art really can’t be this way.
I don’t normally do shows around Christmas time.
Normally, I try to get my haircut when I’m in a developing country. Last time, it was in Vietnam.
Academics don’t normally manage to alter people’s way of thinking through their strength of argument.
I don’t normally cook, but if I did it probably would be beans, sausage, bacon and eggs. I never really get to eat that to be honest.
Four days a week, I do gymming, four days marital arts. Once a week I normally play lawn tennis, and once a week I horseride.
Sushant Singh Rajput
Well, normally we don’t think all that hard about titles.
When the pressure is on, you’re going to default back to how you’ve played your whole life and how you’d normally pitch.
I even get tired performing standup, which is normally a low-impact exercise in futility but looks hard the way I do it. That’s why I take a lot of breaks, often stopping in the middle of a joke to catch my breath, or blame the crowd for not laughing before the punchline.
Normally if I am on holiday I’ll be planning a fishing trip or a surfing trip.
I normally did isolation/bodybuilding-style workouts. But since coming to the Performance Center, the strength and conditioning coach has me doing a lot of different workouts I’ve never done before, and it’s really shocked my body in a good way.
I normally don’t eat junk food.
Normally, you spend the play convincing people of the world and the characters.
I’m normally a burger and chips girl – such a cheap date.
The Games are just a nice, positive way to build friendships, camaraderie and, of course, self-esteem. Plus, the Games are a great opportunity for people to participate in sports who normally wouldn’t.
The Internet has given us an unlimited platform of knowledge and inspiration. Sometimes the most efficient way to create a new sound is to cross between genres and experiment with noises/tempos that wouldn’t normally go together.
The general view is that actors start on soaps and then maybe graduate to prime-time television or film; normally you don’t see a film actor going to do a soap.
Normally when one reporter talks to you at a tournament it’s no big deal.
The recreational golfer who gives it careful thought will conclude that the favorite golf hole in his life played downhill, gradually or severely, and normally was downwind as well.
Meditation is such a more substantial reality than what we normally take to be reality.
I’m slightly concerned, because as a centre-half who took a lot of knocks to the head I’m not normally synonymous with being a fashion icon.
Sitcom characters, my writing partner Sam Bain and I sometimes tell each other, are not normally self-conscious. Or not quite. The best sitcom characters are probably just a little self-conscious. Deep enough to feel pain and humiliation, but shallow enough that there are no hidden depths.
Normally, the same strange impulse which brings a crowd to an accident is present in the reaction to a concert in which something goes wrong.
Lara St. John
Something that I don’t normally tell, and it’s not necessarily because I wanna keep it from anybody – I just don’t think about it – but one thing about me that not a whole lot of people know and that never really gets brought up is that I actually don’t have a driver’s license. I’ve never taken a driver’s test.
We talk about quantum weirdness and things being in two places at once, but it all involves atoms and molecules, stuff we don’t normally interact with.
Aaron D. O’Connell
Big Internet companies on average are capable of generating revenue of $1 million per employee, and that compares to 10 to 20 percent of that which is normally generated by traditional offline businesses of comparable size.
Everyone knows how much Australia means to me. I try to get back here as much as I can, but normally it’s for work, so I’m in and out and jetlagged and stressed.
London audiences are tricky, too. They don’t laugh as much as the Northern audiences because, and I hate to say this, they are a bit cleverer normally, and they are picking up on all the little details and listening more carefully.
During the fight, if you feel something, you know it’s pretty bad, because normally you don’t feel anything. You get punched and elbowed in the face, you don’t feel it until after the fight.
I tend to like to make my statements more in fashion than in beauty, because what I normally respond to is when someone looks really effortless and deconstructed, beauty-wise, and they’re fashion is really grand. Someone like Kate Moss is a great example.
As an actress, it appeals to me because I love the idea of playing those in-between moments, the sort of behavioral stuff that one might not normally see.
The stuff that I do and enjoy is normally quite similar to a lot of the stuff that psychics and spiritualists would enjoy themselves. I just have a different approach to wanting to find out how things really work, or a sense of, I guess, responsibility about honesty and so on.
With regards to the paint, I’m normally quite introverted and shy. I keep myself to myself, and I find that when I hide behind the paint, so to speak, I’m able to let myself go more and move more freely than I can without it.
When I take go-karts out with my friends, it’s a disaster normally. But in the race car, I’m calm because they pay me to do this, and I have to be professional.
Most people travel with a good book, but I also keep my agenda with me; I’ll flip through the pages and take a few moments to organize my life a little – I rarely get the time to do this normally.
I want the opportunity to play for a Stanley Cup, but I want to be able continue living life normally.
I don’t have a sweet tooth, normally; I’m a salty-savory girl. But when I’m pregnant, almost as a ritual, at 4 o’clock, I’ll have cookies-and-cream ice cream!
I don’t like to look too far ahead normally, I see it season-by-season or game-by-game.
I like styling girls that don’t normally dress in vintage clothes and don’t normally wear red lipstick; I like seeing those kind of girls restyled in a retro way.
Dita Von Teese
I use a portable pocket ultrasound device instead of a stethoscope to listen to the heart, and I share it with the patient in real time. ‘Look at your valve, look at your heart-muscle strength.’ So they’re looking at it with me. Normally a patient is tested by an ultrasonographer who is not allowed to tell them anything.
Normally, you have to wait for the costume department to help you out of costume.
I mean normally you have your agent call the other agent and all the agents talk and then finally you get a phone call and you hear some misrepresentation of what someone else had to say.
Normally I make myself swim, do exercises. For zest I like going to the cinema.
I really try to make smart choices about my fashion and really live a life on the carpet that’s the same as the life I live normally.
When you’re sick, you’re not thinking 24 hours a day about your suffering, about dying. You want to talk and laugh and think about other things. In the midst of trying to live your life normally, the fear and dread, the realization that it might all end, rises up inside of you.
You know how a nonlethal weapon is supposed to work? A nonlethal weapon works on the basis of three things: It needs to deter, and that’s normally done through pain, and that pain creates a byproduct, which is fear.
Like most of the other teachers, I’d done a bit of teaching and we all think we’re great at what we do, but you realize that normally you have an audience who are all onside, who all want to listen.
After a couple losses, I normally wouldn’t say anything to my wife in the morning, just kind of grunt and grumble and grab my coffee and get on my way out.
I never quite know how to describe what I do. I normally just say, ‘Oh, I’m a magician’, which probably puts fairly naff ideas in people’s minds but is pleasantly conversation-stopping.
When people are away from home, they do things they might not normally do.
Normally, I don’t like explaining songs. I don’t want to kill anyone’s interpretation or the story they want to make for themselves.
I used to get off the bus, and there’d be a crowd around, you know, and I was thinking, ‘God, I hope this is not for me.’ And it normally was, and it was because someone said something to my sister, and the first she says is, ‘Well, I’ll get my brother.’
I’d first come to Chelsea from Kosice and, for me, that was a dream. It’s not easy making that move. I was maybe the first player to come from Slovakia to a club like Chelsea, who normally buy players from Holland, Spain, Italy, Portugal.
Taking time to do something slower than you normally would is a privilege that should not be ignored.
I did all sorts of things that you wouldn’t normally find on an engineer’s docket, but it made an educated person out of me.
I love palm strikes because you have a longer reach. Normally, when you give a left hook and then a right straight, you are too close for the right straight. Why? Because the hook is shorter.
Normally, I’d believe that the saying ‘There’s no small parts, only small actors’ is a load of crock because, more often than not, actors relegated to the small-part category stay in ‘Who was that guy from that thing’ purgatory – however, ’90s sitcom ‘Friends’ proved that the saying is true.
Practicing is not normally fun. Sometimes people say they’re practicing, but they’re really just enjoying themselves and the instrument. That’s not real practice.
I can’t grill vegetables, shellfish or steaks without tongs. Don’t bother with those long-handled grilling tongs normally found in the BBQ section of your home store. Get intimate with your grill and opt for the regular stainless steel tongs.
Normally, some people think about 50 as a big moment in life. I kind of think 30 because in your baseball career, 30 was considered on top kind of looking at the end of your career. So I remember thinking about 30 in different ways, but 50 just seems like another step right now.
Cal Ripken, Jr.
Normally when you meet a person you don’t like, you might have words with them, but then you walk away. When you’re filming a show, you can’t walk away.
Normally, I love to go to the movies and when I see a character portrayed by different actors at different ages, it kind of pops a little bit for me. It brings me out of the movie experience. Now we have the technology to cure that.
I normally talk to my players about everyday situations, and there are not really any secrets.
The funny thing is that I’m the girl who no one sees at the beach. Ask anyone who’s traveled with me. Normally, I’m in so many layers, I look like Lawrence of Arabia!
You have to see if the batsman is coming out, if he is staying back, what his grip is like, to gauge his intentions. A common trend I have observed is, a lot of batsmen change their grips when they are looking to hit: normally they either go high or slide their hand to the bottom of the handle to get maximum power.
Normally, learning lines is fairly easy for me, but when you add an accent onto that, it adds a complexity that I had not anticipated.
People who don’t normally read make an exception for my books, possibly because they’re short.
Normally when we go in and write the songs we write, we think about doing a cover, but never a covers record. That would be, for us, a concept. We don’t want to have a concept!
I have done everything in my life very normally. And marriage is definitely there on my agendas in life. But I don’t know when will it happen.
Normally, when you’re working on something, there are other characters that you have alliances with, and you have unified goals with some characters.
‘LOL’ is one of several texting expressions that convey nuance in a system where you don’t have the voice and face to do it the way you normally would.
I don’t watch the beginnings of many series; I don’t know why – maybe because I’m normally working.
I call it ‘The Breakfast Club’ philosophy. There’s something about being trapped in a dire situation with a group of people that you would never normally be trapped with.
At barbecues, people just like to eat a lot of meat; it’s extraordinary. They eat far more than they normally would at a dinner party.
It’s great to have the chance to play a character before he goes to the dark side, or the yellow side if you will. Normally, you don’t get that opportunity. The narrative of a movie usually demands that you are that guy from the start.
Braising eggs in a flavoursome, aromatic sauce is all the rage. It is warming and comforting, ideal for the morning when you are not normally up for a great culinary challenge.
I normally do a workout in the morning so I have the rest of my day to do what I want.
I live with one foot in the sand and one in the snow. There’s European egocentricity, and the African opposite. I normally say that my African experience has made me a better European.
Normally, when politicians talk about ‘cutting the budget,’ they really mean reducing the amount of increase. Actual spending goes up while the politicians claim to have ‘cut the budget.’
Getting comfortable again and being in a vocal booth on the opposite end of the spectrum, when you’re normally the one tracking the vocals, is kind of scary.
I used to write travel essays, and I was struck by how the fact of writing about a place would change my relationship with it. I would make completely different choices, do things I wouldn’t have normally, because I had to fill this narrative shape.
The driver is normally responsible for adjusting the brake balance, so if it is happening automatically you could brake later and take more speed into each corner.
On some sets, if a helicopter goes by, what would normally happen is that somebody would go, ‘There’s a helicopter. Stop.’ I’d never stop for a helicopter. I am always trying to make sure that the machine is in service to the actors.
As a rule, anything that is pretty you avoid when on an expedition in the polar extremes. Normally anything other than white means a hazard such as a crevasse.
There’s a variety and depth to the song topics I get to write about in children’s music and books: being able to write about things I wouldn’t normally write about, like a disappointing pancake, or monsters or opposite day is really different than writing about heartbreak and relationships.
I normally live in Los Angeles, if you can call it normally living.
I am not a typical wife. We are two friends who live together. We love each other, but I don’t do the usual things that wives normally do for their husbands, like giving medicines on time, or making sure the clothes are ironed or dry-cleaned.
When you work in Norway, you actually have to have a contract about lunches because Norwegians don’t eat lunch normally, so they just throw out a loaf of bread and some coldcuts.
For events, I do use make-up, but normally I don’t. I might use a bit of eyebrow pencil and a lipstick but nothing else.
Normally, my goal is to get past the first round, because that’s the hardest.
I think I’m basically the same guy I always was. Maybe I’ve learned, through experience, to rein in some of the anger and temper they say redheads normally have.
Leeks are normally given the job of flavouring other things, such as stocks and soups, but I find their creaminess and sweet, oniony flavour very satisfying.
Normally, if you have a huge category that leads a bear market all the way down to the bottom – like tech after 2000, or energy in the ’80-’82 bear market – you get one quick pop, and then years of lag as we fight the old war.
Here’s what I love about social media: You get to peer into people’s lives that you normally wouldn’t be able to.
If I write something down, it’s normally just a sharp one-liner.
I’m normally quite restrictive in the runs department.
I went to the UAE aged 28, which normally doesn’t make sense to go at that age.
History shows that it is incredibly tough for a defender to be named Footballer of the Year because over the course of a year there is normally always a forward who steals the headlines up front.
Casseroles don’t have to be about canned ingredients and vegetables you normally wouldn’t even think of eating alone, much less stuck in between layers of sauce and breadcrumbs. They can vary from everyone’s favorite all-time casserole, macaroni and cheese, to the ultimate English casserole, Shepherd’s Pie.
Normally, I like my privacy in the high desert.
I’d been travelling in Romania. It was 1990, just after the revolution and you couldn’t buy anything so we’d been eating basic food. We went to McDonald’s and, I’m ashamed to say, it was wonderful. I hate McDonald’s normally.
Normally I’ve been burning lots of calories by dancing, going to shows and generally being active. But since we went into the first lockdown I’ve mainly sat on the sofa.
I work out most days, normally first thing, and then I just see where the day takes me. I recipe test most days, do lots of social media and emails, but nothing else is constant. Some days, I film YouTube videos; other days, I have lots of meetings, work on blog posts, brainstorm ideas, and work on upcoming projects.
Normally, I stay away from politics – unless I’m going to run for president.
Normally I play dads, good guys, and little animals.
The only reason why I’m on Twitter is because Dixie Carter made me. I’ll go on Twitter every now and again and just say some things. Normally, it’s just to hype wrestling and to hype what’s coming on TV and whatnot.
This book was company for me – I wrote these things when I was in hotels, far from where I normally live. I never intended to publish it.
My family is normally ‘Shameless’ meets ‘The Royle Family.’
At my ashram, people work long hours joyfully because they are inspired. When people are involved and joyfully doing something, they usually turn out ten times more and do more than what they would normally do as a duty.
What I’m normally associated with are darker, more brooding roles.
Normally, I focus on my job and focus on trying to help my team and trying to improve every training session and try to be as a good as I can.
David de Gea
I accept MMA, I appreciate MMA, I even get techniques from MMA, surprisingly, like footwork techniques and how I move. It’s different and unorthodox to what boxers are normally used to.
Still, most of those effects occur in the context of harmless play and it is patently obvious that children are not normally turned into aggressive little monsters by TV or video games, since most children do not become aggressive little monsters.
Normally, on the rare chance that a celebrity comes to my property, I get real nervous.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Normally street children are shown in terms of the tragedy of their lives – which is true – but there’s also another dimension: their wisdom, dignity and enormous capacity for survival.
Normally, I try to stay away from playing security guard-type characters, the stereotypical, big man fare. And I’ve been pretty blessed, man, and successful at getting out of the box.
Omar Benson Miller
My favorite part of the film business is the research part, with the access we get from people who are excited to be involved and the things we get to see and do, which we’re not normally going to get in everyday life.
I have been doing 120 miles a week, when normally I would do about 140.
When you have an idea for a story, you want those characters to reach as many people as you can. I think you normally think of prose as a way of doing that. It fits our time, the culture.
Normally, making polenta means having a convenient excuse to use all the butter, milk, and Parmesan in my fridge. Using miso and water instead builds tons of flavor but keeps the texture light.
I always want to set myself a challenge by doing something no-one would expect me to do! But, having said that, I don’t feel as a musician you can steer too far away from what you normally do.
Martial arts just normally would not draw me to the box office.
Normally I sleep for 9, 10 hours a night.
I always tell people that, just to be a bad jazz musician, you have to be better than most musicians. The worst jazz musicians are normally better than most musicians, because you have to know so much.
We want to talk to celebrities about the things celebrities don’t normally talk about. Like, we’d love to get Kim Kardashian to talk to us about finance. She is a businesswoman, after all.
Prediction by analogy -creativity – is so pervasive we normally don’t notice it.
I try to study a genre I don’t really listen to on a day-to-day-basis because there is honestly inspiration everywhere: it’s best to go digging in places you don’t normally go.
I normally ignore the History Channel.
I’m interested in doing movies I wouldn’t normally be interested in doing.
I love playing the stuff with McGee at home with Delilah. We’ve had episodes where it shows them at home arguing over making dinner and things like that. I love doing that stuff because it’s different than what the show normally does.
The Green Lanterns are very forward and very courageous, very forceful. The Red Lanterns are out of control, and they’re not in their right mind because when we’re angry or in rage, we say things and we do things we wouldn’t normally do.
I hate that people think going to the theatre is a special occasion. I wish people would treat it as normally as going to the cinema.
I’ve got a Range Rover and a little Mercedes. I normally drive my Range Rover because I feel like a monster in it. Nobody messes with me.
When the fans spend money, you normally leave the audience happy.
I’m normally a player that plays well under the TV lights, the cameras and everything, I normally do produce quite well.
Normally, my birthdays are very quiet. I go to the temple with my family and later take blessing from my parents. A few friends come over to my house, and we talk about the year gone by.
Normally sports day is once a year for kids, where you have fun, and everybody is jostling. For us, making movies is like having sports day everyday: competing with each other, doing your best. It’s like that except we don’t get awards every day in our sports day.
With ‘Hang the DJ,’ I was concerned that it was more comedic and much lighter than we normally do for ‘Black Mirror.’
I normally sleep very well, but when I do have bad dreams, they always involve my children.
Normally, the coach does not like to make changes that are not necessary – because a team has to find itself.
Normally I’m watching people become actors in the process of making the film. It’s very important you have a lot of respect when you are dealing with young people. You are in charge of everything about the process. You’re an adult and they’re not.
I normally like to do a lip pencil and then fill it in with the same pencil because it stays on all day, and you don’t have to reapply it.
That’s what counts for you as a player if you are on a high salary and you are earning, let’s say, enough money, which you normally can’t spend in your lifetime. It’s something you should really think about – where you play, what level you play, the audience.
We normally know Jesus as a humble, loving servant, which He is. But Revelations gives us the bigger picture of who Jesus is, in His glory.
One place that I have very strong memories of is the Congo. That’s somewhere I’ve been to four times. It’s not a place where normally outsiders go, which is what makes it very special.
I think what happens normally in a narrative film is that the camera constructs the reality.
