I had a meeting with Umar Akmal and discussed exactly where I thought he was. We are looking at the skillset that he brings to the Pakistan team.

Donald Trump

Thomas S. Monson

People should be allowed to roll out of bed and go to an interview; people shouldn’t be telling you, ‘You can’t curse because it’s not ladylike.’ I don’t believe in those standards.

Mahira Khan
The failure to set standards for Palestinian conduct hurts the cause of peace.

Elliott Abrams
You can’t please everyone. When you’re too focused on living up to other people’s standards, you aren’t spending enough time raising your own. Some people may whisper, complain and judge.

I am pretty sure central banks will continue to print money, and the standards of living for people in the western world, not just in America, will continue to decline because the cost of living increases will exceed income.

Seth Moulton
In all great epochs of history, the existence of standards – that is, the conscious adoption of type-forms – has been the criterion of a polite, well-ordered society; for it is a commonplace that repetition of the same things for the same purpose exercises a settling and civilizing influence on men’s minds.

Walter Gropius

Lytton Strachey

Being broke and being in the street does not mean that you’re keeping it real. I think that everybody that lives in a non-wealthy neighbourhood spends their time and energy trying to do everything they can to better their living standards. I’m no different.

My parents set high standards. It wasn’t okay if you got a B.

Buster Posey

Zoe Quinn
In the end, I think the majority of Romanian society will understand that if we respect environmental protection standards, if we have benefits in taxes, royalties, jobs, we should do what all the modern countries in Europe and beyond are doing to take advantage of their natural resources.

Victor Ponta
I still worry that I could be better. That’s where standards come from, from not wanting to settle. The fear of not being good enough propels you.

April Bloomfield
Everything that I said that I feel like I want, deserve, the type of respect that I want from a man, I still believe that. I still am going to hold those standards for any man in my life.

Hannah Brown
Limbaugh has been warning us about a deep cultural rot in our intellectual class, an accelerating collapse of standards, and the institutions necessary to support and sustain limited government. Yet, the Beltway consultant class and the party leadership would not listen.

Tom Tancredo
In a globally interdependent world, a better financial and investment system cannot be achieved on a country-by-country basis. There may be no one-size-fits-all model for economic development, but without global standards and complementary regulations, the long-term outlook for the world economy will remain bleak.

Jose Angel Gurria
There are so many double standards that seem to be applied only to female MPs. I’ve had infinite comments about what I’m wearing when the focus should be on what I’m saying.

Andrea Leadsom
We must seek to persuade member states and institutions that better regulation in Europe does not mean cutting health and safety in the workplace, nor does it mean dismantling social standards.

John Hutton
Concealed-carry reciprocity, I believe, undermines American gun laws by forcing states to accept carry-permitting standards of every other state, including some states that have no standards at all.

Brad Schneider
Growth is not an objective in itself; we should be concerned with standards of living.

Joseph Stiglitz
The standards by which a woman’s appearance is judged on the news are different to men, there’s no question about that. Our clothes are different, for starters, they’re much more varied, they’re commented upon, there’s no question about that. But do you have to be really good-looking? I don’t think that’s true.

Fiona Bruce
People have asked why the new currency introduced was different in size and thickness from the old. This is because the new currency has been designed to make it hard to counterfeit. When you are going to make a change of this magnitude, you need to get the best standards in place.

Urjit Patel
I support high academic standards. Period.

Jeb Bush
You have competition every day because you set such high standards for yourself that you have to go out every day and live up to that.

Michael Jordan
Well, by the standards of a lot of countries, by Latin American standards, it wasn’t so bad.

Paul A. Volcker
It’s a technical, fairly difficult job that has no particular political connotations, so I doubt there are any big campaign contributors dying to be on the Fed. And remember, it doesn’t pay very well, certainly by Republican standards.

Alice Rivlin
Other than my sexuality, I am vulnerable regarding my physical appearance, as I am not what people considered ideal by most standards. For the entertainment business, I am not the body type of what is typically cast for television or movies.

Alex Newell
The parts that I get to play are not based around the European beauty standards: They’re more about character, and I love that.

Keala Settle
You should shoot for high standards, and believe they’re obtainable.

Buster Posey
Harass someone on Bumble, and you’re banned for life. Harsh? Maybe. But I feel strongly that we won’t end misogyny until we start holding each other to higher standards, and that starts with setting clear boundaries and enforcing them.

Whitney Wolfe Herd
The director Sofia Coppola’s new comic melodrama, ‘Lost in Translation,’ thoroughly and touchingly connects the dots between three standards of yearning in movies: David Lean’s ‘Brief Encounter,’ Richard Linklater’s ‘Before Sunrise’ and Wong Kar-wai’s ‘In the Mood for Love.’

Elvis Mitchell
We do all, myself included, we tend to hold ourselves to pretty low standards. But when it comes to judging public figures or politicians or people we’ve never met, we tend to hold people to very high standards, and, if we held ourselves to those standards, we’d always fall short.

We at The Web Standards Project turned everything on its head. We said browsers should support the same standards instead of competing to invent new tags and scripting languages. We said designers, developers, and content folks should create one site that was accessible to everyone.

Jeffrey Zeldman
It is up to us to change laws on the books like ‘Stand Your Ground’ laws and push elected officials to enact regulations that hold police officers to the same standards as the rest of society. This is why we vote.

Al Sharpton
We are constantly auditing our supply chain. Making sure that safety standards are – are, you know, are the highest. We’re making sure that working conditions are the highest.

Tim Cook
One of the issues facing us today is that there are countries where there is a serious lack of resources, the standards of living are very low, and this creates a fundamental unease and discomfort in entire populations.

Ralph Merkle
Torture, including practices like waterboarding, violates the legal and moral standards of all civilized nations.

Jerrold Nadler
Honestly, I wish I could be a part of all the remakes of my father’s films. But on second thought, I wouldn’t want to be a part of any. The thought of being compared to him is unnerving. I’d rather do my films than live in the fear of living up to his standards.

Abhishek Bachchan
What I find so special about acting – especially being female in this world, and growing up with such intense standards of how you should be – is that you can break those rigid models.

Brigette Lundy-Paine
Approximately 80% of our air pollution stems from hydrocarbons released by vegetation, so let’s not go overboard in setting and enforcing tough emission standards from man-made sources.

Ronald Reagan
We can be inspired by and renew our ancient culture of sustainable design and living. Why not set standards for producers and importers of all goods and services sold in India?

Rohini Nilekani
In ‘True Grit,’ we had a vulture, a trained vulture… that was a pain and that was – even by vulture standards – probably a stupid vulture, and that was frustrating.

Ethan Coen
In terms of social media, I try to have my voice heard loudly in the cacophony of other influences whether from television and the Internet or social media… I want my voice to be heard in terms of the standards and values that I try to pass on to my kids.

Alan Thicke
We must use every tool at our disposal to lift the living standards of low-wage employees.

Eric Schneiderman
What’s great about stand-up is that you can say whatever you want and go around the country, and sometimes the world, and work on it and see how people react. You don’t need Standards & Practices or notes from lawyers or producers to tell you what’s funny.

Natasha Leggero
To some people, Common Core means what it actually is, which is a set of standards. That’s not necessarily most people. To other people, Common Core is a new curriculum that’s been implemented at their school that they don’t understand. It’s applying new teaching tools.

Campbell Brown
Even the most cynical can hardly be surprised by the antics of Nixon and his accomplices as they are gradually revealed. It matters little, at this point, where the exact truth lies in the maze of perjury, evasion, and of contempt for the normal – hardly inspiring – standards of political conduct.

Noam Chomsky
Today the demands are for even higher standards in the quality of care, for greater flexibility and convenience in treatment times, and for more prevention through screening and health checks.

Lucy Powell
You can become an even more excellent person by constantly setting higher and higher standards for yourself and then by doing everything possible to live up to those standards.

Brian Tracy
In the literal sense, there has been no relevant evolution since the trek from Africa. But there has been substantial progress towards higher standards of rights, justice and freedom – along with all too many illustrations of how remote is the goal of a decent society.

Noam Chomsky
If I body-shame a woman, it is more a reflection of me being critical of my body, me not being able to keep up to certain standards I have, and so making sure that the women around me feel the same way.

Rupi Kaur
The government has a responsibility to protect society, to help maintain society. That’s why we have laws… The rule of law creates a set of standards for our behavior.

Vint Cerf
At the start of every season, I always asked myself – am I meeting my own standards? Can I still do it? I didn’t want to come to the conclusion that I couldn’t during a season.

Philipp Lahm
Competitive programs such as Race to the Top provide incentives for communities to develop new solutions for old problems. Because of Race to the Top, states have raised their standards and committed to fixing schools that have persistently failed students.

Michael Bennet
Nafta has been responsible for a race to the bottom in standards across North America, with working conditions declining along with wages.

Barry Gardiner
Americans deserve an attorney general that will be honest with them, they deserve an attorney general who will uphold the basic standards of political independence and accountability.

John Cornyn
We want to show all of our customers that the industry standards that we had been employing before – which are considered great standards – were not good enough.

Steve Ells
States are free to modify the Common Core State Standards or adopt their own individual standards, because academic standards are the prerogative of the states.

Jeb Bush
What matters is that you are doing what you think is right based on the standards which you hold.

Walter Annenberg
Good parts just don’t fall off trees. I try to be very careful about what sort of projects I attack. There’s an audience out there that expects high standards from me.

David Jason
Many thought it was a fool’s errand – that the browser companies were never going to listen to us. Others argued that, ‘Users don’t care if you use Web standards.’ Well, of course they don’t. They just know that your site works better.

Jeffrey Zeldman
You figure out what your standards are, and I think that’s important.

Neil Patrick Harris
New York was at the forefront of rap, so because of all the great people who have gone before me, being a rapper from Queens, I have to live up to those standards. I’m basically just a regular guy who says what he feels and likes to joke. I like long walks on the beach… and I love rap.

Action Bronson
We have to set our own agenda, we have to set our own standards, we have to be very strong about what we want, we have to be very strong about our passion and if it’s not right for you, you shouldn’t do it just because you’re advised by so-called geniuses.

Jackie DeShannon
I don’t like hypocrisy, I don’t like double standards, it’s probably why i’m vegan.

Austin Aries
The nicest thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from.

Ken Olsen
I always prefer to save up and have a four- or five-star holiday rather than take lots of little breaks where the standards aren’t so high.

June Whitfield
Africa Rising is as much about improving standards of governance as it is about an increasingly confident youths and civil society. It is also about businessmen and women who are stepping beyond national borders and going global.

Yemi Osinbajo
If you print money like in Zimbabwe… the purchasing power of money goes down, and the standards of living go down, and eventually, you have a civil war.

Marc Faber
I can’t speak highly enough of Petr Cech. He’s set the standards of what it is to be a proper man and a gentleman.

Ryan Mason
Let’s not be afraid to speak the common sense truth: you can’t have high standards without good discipline.

William Hague
I tried to be just a singer of standards when I was starting out. And there was nothing special enough about my voice to make it that far. So I feel a bit like Rod Stewart. Once you’ve had that rock career, people will give you that chance where otherwise they might not.

Nellie McKay
An elaborate system of etiquette and social standards flowered around the home phone: how long a child might be allowed to stay on the phone, how late one could call without being impolite, and of course, the dread implications of a late night call which violated that norm.

John Battelle
The changing economic situation, the changing global market means it is understandable that employers are constantly raising the bar. It is challenging the education system to come up with ever higher standards to meet the expectation of employers.

Jim Knight
Greatness, in the last analysis, is largely bravery – courage in escaping from old ideas and old standards and respectable ways of doing things.

James Harvey Robinson
We fully expect our competitors to join us in embracing open standards with their next redesigns.

Mike Davidson
We have to make a determination of what the minimum standards are for police, fire and emergency services in all of America’s major cities. Once we determine that, then we can decide what the funding is.

Warren Rudman
The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.

Ray Kroc
KPMG is committed to the highest standards of professionalism, , and quality, and we are dedicated to the capital markets we serve.

Lynne Doughtie
I honestly feel like we never had a bad episode by TV standards. Every week I felt there were so many strong components of the show, especially the writing.

Donal Logue
Perhaps McCain has opposed affirmative action for so long that he doesn’t know it’s about inviting more people to meet standards, not lowering them.

Gloria Steinem
Now that I’m a XXL Freshman, you know, I feel like that sets high standards for me, and I feel like I have to deliver.

Well it’s a drastic procedure by your standards and mine, but for the people who are living in desperation perhaps the best way to understand it is that it seems no more drastic to them than circumcision.

John Money
The country has double standards – it’s obsessed with fair skin on one hand, but if the woman is white, she is expected to be loose-moraled.

Kalki Koechlin
Ueli Steck, I’m absolutely certain, had a very strong inner drive to keep pushing. He set very high standards for himself.

Reinhold Messner
I know I have exacting standards.

Travis Knight
I think that the line between television and features started to blur a couple years ago. The standards started to become the same, which is that the idea had to be very loud. The show didn’t have to be loud; the idea had to be loud. It had to cut through the clutter.

Alex Kurtzman
The people I admire most are those doing outstanding things for the poorest children, such as Michael Wilshaw at Mossbourne academy, Dan Moynihan and all those at the Harris academies, and those at chains such as Ark and the Haberdashers, who are driving up standards in the poorest areas.

Michael Gove
Cultural dominance of middle-class norms prevail in middle-class schools with a teacher teaching toward those standards and with students striving to maintain those standards.

James S. Coleman
At the ‘Times,’ all journalists on every subject followed the same rules and were supposed to meet the same standards, so I never really thought about fashion writing as being in a bubble.

Suzy Menkes
Yes, bad or mediocre ballets can be useful to the dancers and temporarily fun for the audience, but in the long run, the lowering of standards can only erode the art form we all love.

Robert Gottlieb
You need to do the work to bring the money in, but not compromise standards.

Heston Blumenthal
There’s something to be said for a likable character, but fiction has a way of upending our ordinary standards.

Ben Dolnick
Bioethics is a very, very important field. As we get more and more in the arena of understanding science and getting better opportunities, the fact that you can do things with biological sciences that have an impact on a human being means you must have ethical standards.

Anthony Fauci
There are no standards for computer programmers and no group to certify them.

Dave Parnas
There are so many double standards, not just in rap, but everywhere.

Our heritage and ideals, our code and standards – the things we live by and teach our children – are preserved or diminished by how freely we exchange ideas and feelings.

Walt Disney
People mistake their limitations for high standards.

Jean Toomer
In business, standards establish the rules of the game, creating path dependencies as investments are made and corresponding designs are set in stone and plastic. Inferior standards can prevail due to smart marketing or industry collusion.

Evgeny Morozov
Set high standards and few limitations for yourself.

Anthony J. D’Angelo
In order to grow-up, blockchains will eventually need a lot of standards that are vendor- and solutions-agnostic. So many areas are ripe for standards developments: smart contracts, tokens, security, storage, messaging, identities, naming, record-keeping, and more.

William Mougayar
I set higher standards than anyone and don’t need anyone to tell me when I’ve played badly or not had a good game.

James Milner
Time after time we’re told corporations should have freedom from pesky job safety regulations, environmental protections and labor standards – giving working people the freedom to be crushed in collapsing mines, choke on filthy air and get paid too little to live on.

Richard Trumka
In 1973, the Supreme Court ruled that individual communities should set obscenity standards. Whenever a case is tried, it will be based on a community standard for that particular place.

Larry Flynt
Every time I act on a fear, I feel disappointed in myself. I have a lot of fear. If I can quit all fear in my life and all guilt, then I tend to be much, much more living up to my standards. I’ve never seen a person fail if they didn’t fear failure.

Sebastian Thrun
If I’m demanding and have high standards, I’m happy about that.

Noel Edmonds
As utility companies work to achieve full compliance with clean water standards, Congress must ensure our nation’s most vulnerable are not priced out of life’s most essential resource.

Marcia Fudge
As Speaker, I passed Maine’s most aggressive carbon emission reduction and renewable energy standards, and in the Senate, I will prioritize moving toward a completely clean and renewable energy system.

Sara Gideon
Every school, including voucher and charter schools, must be held to strict accountability standards.

John Bel Edwards
The standards of the international community manifest firmness. Iran has no need for long-range missiles or to collaborate with terrorist organizations all over the world.

Moshe Katsav
My expectation levels are probably higher than what’s achievable. But I have to keep pushing the standards.

Phil Neville
I set myself high standards, and when I drop below them, I’m not happy about it.

Andrew Robertson
You’re supposed to create new standards. The more you play songs by your peers, they become standards, you know? Miles Davis played ‘Gingerbread Boy’ ‘cos he and Jimmy Heath were cool, you know? That’s how the culture goes.

Robert Glasper
By cutting the red tape that comes out of Brussels, we will free our farmers to grow more, sell more, and export more great British food whilst upholding our high standards for plant and animal health and welfare.

Andrea Leadsom
When I helped to develop the open standards that computers use to communicate with one another across the Net, I hoped for but could not predict how it would blossom and how much human ingenuity it would unleash.

Vint Cerf
As a mother of four children, I want to know the drugs I’m giving them are safe. And as an American businesswoman, I want to keep jobs here, and that means making sure foreign drug plants have to meet the same standards as domestic ones.

Heather Bresch
Standards of conduct appropriate to civil society or the workings of a democracy cannot be purely and simply applied to the Church.

Pope Benedict XVI
Because we’re playing tournaments week in and week out I’d think to myself, ‘What’s the point in practising?’ You have no down time to yourself and you’re looking for some to spend with your family and friends. But I’ve now realised that with the game so cut-throat and standards going up every week, it doesn’t work.

Adrian Lewis
I don’t see a groundswell of people willing to raise gas taxes right now. That leaves fuel economy standards as the only effective tool we have as a nation to make a dent in our dangerous and ever growing consumption of oil.

Sherwood Boehlert
We need, first of all, for there to be accountability, for there to be somebody who is responsible for enforcing standards and holding people’s feet to the fire.

Jennifer Granholm
The Common Core State Standards are more rigorous standards than the great majority of states had in place previously.

Jeb Bush
Through their own actions, customers can hold companies responsible to higher standards of social responsibility. Through collective action, they can leverage their dollars to combat the force of those investors who myopically pursue profits at the expense of the rest of society.

Simon Mainwaring
I do believe that the United Nations needs to have more exacting, more enhanced professional standards for the military peacekeepers that are deployed.

Alex Morrison
Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church is often labeled today as fundamentalism. Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and swept along by every wind of teaching, look like the only attitude acceptable to today’s standards.

Pope Benedict XVI
There are a few dogmas and double standards and really regrettable exports from philosophy that have confounded the thinking of scientists on the subject of morality.

Sam Harris
To say that the U.K. could have no part to play in improving a justice system different to our own, but which was seeking advice on how to deliver more internationally compliant standards, was a betrayal of our international humanitarian duty.

Crispin Blunt
The tourism industry has considerable potential to be a sustainability role model in its role as a buyer of goods and other services, from building materials and green construction standards to farm produce.

Arancha Gonzalez
I think a winner has to be a master of preparation, they have to be a master of connection, extremely competitive and have really high standards for themselves and the people around them.

Maya Moore
Everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin. Whether there are social standards set in place that act against that, it doesn’t matter because the people that love you for who you are are going to love you always, and you should love yourself always.

Tye Sheridan
One meaningful distinction between high and popular culture, is that there’s way more good popular culture – because its standards of quality are more forgiving, because sobriety isn’t its default mode, because there’s so damn much of it.

Robert Christgau
People are, well, only human. We know that. The rule of law is borne out in identifying, condemning, and punishing those who violate the standards on which we all agree. This is exactly what we do in America.

Jim Inhofe
I remember making ‘Mr. Show,’ thinking, ‘Man this stuff is really funny to me.’ I don’t know if anyone else will love it, but I know I’m going to still watch it in 15 years if I’m still alive and laugh really hard. Even though we had very high standards, we were trying to excite and please ourselves.

Bob Odenkirk
It’s ridiculous that we are in a place where we feel like we can classify and dismiss certain groups of people just because of the way they look, or we have these standards of health – like, cellulite is something you need to get rid of. No, it isn’t. It’s just a part of people’s bodies.

Zach Anner
The monastery of Christ in the Desert had its resident hermit, Brother Xavier, chosen after years of devotion and service, a monk so trusted and experienced that he qualified by Benedictine standards to be sent to the front lines in the fight against the devil.

Michael Paterniti
If I was a state, I would like to see education left to the schools themselves, but I don’t want the federal government involved in education. I think that it ends up setting standards that cost you time and money and don’t make any difference in education. I want to stop that.

Gary Johnson
I grew up going to a real small missionary baptist church. We would sing a lot of the old standards… the hymns and everything. Those songs are still my favorite and are pretty timeless.

Josh Turner
Given the state of English schools in the 1970s, a national curriculum, Ofsted, regular testing, publication of performance results, have all helped to raise standards by shining a light into the walled garden and letting parents know what is going on inside the school walls.

Damian Green
If you had a national grid with one operator, you had twenty or even a hundred operators, if you don’t have the ability to compel people to observe high standards of conduct, then you run a greater risk.

Spencer Abraham
I think I was very lucky to have grown up with an artist’s studio in the house. It was a kind of life that was possible. Yeah, it made it kind of harder because the standards were higher, but there was no pressure.

Caio Fonseca
I set very high standards for myself and worked every game with the same energy and enthusiasm as if it were the seventh game of a World Series.

Jim Evans
The great philosophers and the great works are standards for the selection of what is essential. Everything that we do in studying the history of philosophy ultimately serves their better understanding.

Karl Jaspers
Filipino talents and skills are becoming ubiquitous in many parts of the world. Returning Filipino workers have helped improve our skills and technological standards.

Ferdinand Marcos
The Internet challenges traditional ways of distributing and processing information and so encourages new standards and behavior.

Ethan Zuckerman
Integrity, a firm adherence to the highest moral and ethical standards, is essential to the life of a true Latter-day Saint.

Joseph B. Wirthlin
It’s really frustrating when you write a show and it’s really funny and someone and from Standards and Decency says, ‘You can’t put that in because it has a naughty word.’

Russell Howard
I don’t think I ever will do a sex scene because of my religion and my personal standards.

Jon Heder
Parents and teachers alike are alarmed by this top-down approach to education that wrongly ties education money for states to the adoption of academic standards that do not fully reflect the values of South Carolina.

Jeff Duncan
Many investors understandably want to do good while also doing well. But the standards for ESG investing are often unclear and sometimes contradictory.

Eugene Scalia
The malfeasance and misjudgments by our corporate, financial and government leaders, declining ethical standards, and the failure of our new agency society reflect a failure of capitalism.

John C. Bogle
You want to score runs at the highest average you can. That’s what motivates you to keep driving the standards.

Alastair Cook
Working together, we can meet our shared goal to combat climate change. From harmonizing vehicle emissions standards to using our trading relationship to boost investment in clean energy, the actions the United States and Canada take together will help both nations meet international goals.

Amy Klobuchar
It is to be observed that every case of war averted is a gain in general, for it helps to form a habit of peace, and community habits long continued become standards of conduct.

Elihu Root
Long after Salinger sent me away, I continued to believe his standards and expectations were the best ones.

Joyce Maynard
The time for double standards that allow Islamists to behave aggressively toward us while they demand our weakness and submission is over.

Newt Gingrich
We should forcefully call out China whenever it violates international standards.

Sherrod Brown
Just because you read a report in the ‘New York Times,’ the ‘Economist,’ or, yes, ‘The New Yorker’ doesn’t make it true. But we do know that a few people have evaluated that story with what strikes me as fairly objective standards of reason.

Michael Specter
I am a junior senator, ninety-fifth on the seniority list, and so by Senate standards, my office in the Russell Senate Office Building is less than splendid.

Jim Webb
It’s in our ability to selectively engage and disengage our moral standards, and it helps explain how people can be barbarically cruel in one moment and compassionate the next.

Albert Bandura
I believe London is the city New York wants to be when it grows up. I love the wealth of cultural resources that a city of that size can offer. I also believe I don’t have to sacrifice all of my standards for human behavior to avail myself of them.

Harry Shearer
I don’t say that I’m going to be like every other comic that’s blue, or gratuitous use of language. I do try to have my own standards: I don’t do everything the audience wants, and I do try to surprise them.

The blessing of having your first project be something as fantastic as ‘Girls’ is that it gave me room to be selective because I didn’t feel pressure to do other things. The curse is that my standards were really high.

Allison Williams
George Bush is by American standards rabidly Upper Class – Eastern, Socially Attractive, WASP, 19th-century money, several generations of Andover and Yale (and, while we’re at it, his father, George H. W. ‘Poppy’ Bush, was a former president and his grandfather was the Nazis’ U.S. banker in the 1930s).

Peter York
I have a good supporting staff around me and good teammates encouraging me every single day to perform on the field and to perform in training and I set high standards for myself as well knowing that Bayern Munich is one of the best teams in the world.

Alphonso Davies
Many French directors, having now realised there was no more real criticism, that the standards of the past have gone, are very offended about the quality of film criticism.

Wim Wenders
I am not a music snob. If anything, my musical taste is bad by any critical standards.

Michael Ian Black
Move your personal investments and retirement funds to socially responsible investment (SRI) funds that support only those corporations that uphold higher standards of behavior. Returns on SRI funds are usually equal to, if not better than, many of the well-known traditional mutual funds.

Simon Mainwaring
We have seen that, in another unfunded mandate, the so-called No Child Left Behind Act, which created tougher standards, and we all support that, but Congress did not provide the money to attract and hire the best teachers.

Bob Filner
Four Seasons’ legendary brand epitomizes the highest standards for service in the hospitality industry worldwide.

Julia Hartz
To me, there is nothing but puerility in a tale in which the human form – and local human passions and conditions and standards – are depicted as native to other worlds and universes.

H. P. Lovecraft
I’ve also seen that great men are often lonely. This is understandable, because they have built such high standards for themselves that they often feel alone. But that same loneliness is part of their ability to create.

Yousuf Karsh
People claim to be progressive by celebrating curvy bodies – but the standards for those hourglass shapes are equally rigid. They mask that with body positivity – but what about unconventionally attractive bodies?

Barbie Ferreira
Not everyone’s high standards have to be the same thing.

Aja Naomi King
The whole point is, give me a break with the standards. You go to the average jazz label and suggest a record and they want to know which standards you’re going to play. I’m saying let’s break the formula.

Branford Marsalis
I know that many of you do wear such a cross of Christ, not in any ostentatious way, not in a way that might harm you at your work or recreation, but a simple indication that you value the role of Jesus Christ in the history of the world, that you are trying to live by Christ’s standards in your own daily life.

Keith O’Brien
I made straight A’s and never got into any trouble, and I still impose those standards on myself. So writing is my chance to escape and become the sleaziest, scummiest role.

Sandra Brown
Honestly, Korean beauty standards are harsh. People are even putting pressure on non-celebrities to be super skinny, and the standards of thinness are just getting worse.

Park Bo-young
I’ve always believed that the artiste is the one who has his pulse on the society and who, in many ways, represents the conscience of society in terms of engaging standards that we need to live by.

Anthony Carmona
There isn’t really any Common Core any more. Each state is able to set the standards for their state. They may elect to adopt very high standards for their students to aspire to and to work toward. And that will be up to each state.

Betsy DeVos
The truth is men like women who are challenging, and set them standards to live up too. Caveat: This doesn’t mean he wants someone to neurotically pick at everything all the time.

Matthew Hussey
Union Budget 2012 has supported industry’s long time demand to improve the provision and standards of education in the country.

Shiv Nadar
I’m not competitive at all, I just don’t care. I have my own standards I want to meet, but it’s a very, very low bar. Even then I struggle to meet those standards.

James Buckley
Sam Walton was a master storyteller who used illustrative stories to reinforce his cultural standards.

Michael Bergdahl
The work must be its own reward. I got that early on. And I’m blessed by meeting my own standards of excellence.

Al Jarreau
I am flattered that so many people have resonated with my style and that beauty and fashion standards in the media continue to grow in their inclusivity and reflection of the real world.

Melissa Leong
I do support high standards, strong accountability, and local control.

Betsy DeVos
The standards are being lowered, not just on the Internet, but in all of news and media.

Vince McMahon
I have a strong moral sense – by my standards.

Rex Stout
Just as the Japanese pioneered a new form of manufacturing – lean production and quite new standards of reliability – so Tata, too, is embracing new forms of manufacture in order to revolutionise the price to meet the consumer needs of a poor, developing country.

Martin Jacques
While Taliban fighters had an initial claim to protection under the conventions, they lost POW status by failing to obey the standards of conduct for legal combatants: wearing uniforms, a responsible command structure, and obeying the laws of war.

John Yoo
All of us salute the ITU’s excellent work in the telecommunications space. It has set standards which encourage investment in infrastructure and ensure that a call made from Europe or America connects smoothly in Kenya or anywhere in the world.

Ory Okolloh
Maybe, instead of putting our standards on other people, we should be very reticent, apprehensive, and deliberate and methodical in choosing whom we choose to elevate in the eyes of the public as role models.

Stephen A. Smith
I am interested in creating model for the global community by using technology and creating ease of doing business, ease of living, and creating higher living standards in A.P.

N. Chandrababu Naidu
When it comes to drag, my favorite thing we can do is kind of push against the beauty standards of magazines. We don’t need to look like supermodels. That what really makes drag special and makes it unique and makes it queer.

Sasha Velour
In sports, you get disqualified if you violate the rules, but in Ukrainian politics, no standards are at work.

Vitali Klitschko
Under Bill Clinton’s HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo, Community Reinvestment Act regulators gave banks higher ratings for home loans made in ‘credit-deprived’ areas. Banks were effectively rewarded for throwing out sound underwriting standards and writing loans to those who were at high risk of defaulting.

Lawrence Kudlow
What people really should be able to be confident in is that the standards of music- making that classically trained musicians present is elite, it is the best and all of us as artists should be committed to that.

Lesley Garrett
I hold myself to the highest of standards.

Jim Irsay
I grew up in a very small town which is remote even by Indian standards. I always dreamed of the world.

Mira Nair
While I may not agree with all of President Obama’s energy policies, I strongly supported his successful effort to double fuel economy standards for cars and trucks to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025.

Bernie Sanders
After my 10-match ban in 2013 for biting Branislav Ivanovic, I had questioned the double standards and how the fact that no one actually gets hurt is never taken into consideration.

Luis Suarez
I might occasionally forget how to open a car door and have too many shower curtains, but I’ve got some standards.

MaryJanice Davidson
Historically, it has required a combination of favorable employment trends and active government intervention to lower the percentage of people in poverty and raise living standards for the working middle class.

Stephanie Coontz
Miss Marple believes in justice and has very high standards. There is nothing you could say or do that would shock her.

Joan Hickson
There are teachers’ unions around the country realizing they want to improve standards of the profession, improve the quality of their profession, and ultimately attract the best and the brightest to their profession. The vast majority of teachers are dedicated and committed.

Antonio Villaraigosa
The #SwimSexy campaign is redefining standards of beauty, and I’m proud to be a part of it. My hope is that this campaign connects with women and girls of all ages, body-types, races, and backgrounds.

Philomena Kwao
Our aim is to set some kind of benchmark and standards for transparency and governance in private philanthropy.

Roshni Nadar
You have to be a well-rounded leader. You can’t fly by the seat of your pants anymore. You have to be incredibly tough-minded about standards of performance, but you also have to be incredibly tenderhearted with the people you’re working with.

Douglas Conant
Common Core reminds us what testing can do right. Modeled on standards of the world’s education superpowers, questions demand critical thinking and creativity. Students are asked to write at length, show their work, and explain their reasoning.

Wendy Kopp
I encourage teachers to speak in their own voices. Don’t use the gibberish of the standards writers.

Jonathan Kozol
All experts on WHO advisory groups for developing norms, standards and guidelines are required to disclose interests regarding the advisory committee’s area of work. If a declared interest is potentially significant, then the expert is either excluded from the meeting or given a restricted role.

Margaret Chan
It is also rarer to find happiness in a man surrounded by the miracles of technology than among people living in the desert of the jungle and who by the standards set by our society would be considered destitute and out of touch.

Thor Heyerdahl
The middle class today would be poor by the standards of the 1950s. Today, with two people working, they would still live paycheck to paycheck.

Peter Schiff
The NHS should be proactively using substantial resources across government to intervene and try to deliver positive improvements in people’s standards of living.

Andrew Lansley
The key benefits of a Special Purpose National Bank Charter are uniform regulations, standards, supervision, and authority for emerging financial technology companies to operate nationwide.

Perianne Boring
Leaders get out in front and stay there by raising the standards by which they judge themselves – and by which they are willing to be judged.

Frederick W. Smith
I, personally, have standards that I have set for myself. I’d like to achieve those and look back without regret.

Joey Votto
This archaic idea – that a woman who is unmarried and childless at 30 is somehow unnatural – will probably always exist, and, like most social standards, it is ridiculous.

Beth Ditto
Sometimes, being different feels a lot like being alone. But with that being said, being true to that and being true to my standards and my way of doing things in my art and my music, everything that has made me feel very different… in the end, it has made me the happiest.

Lindsey Stirling
I would love to see women be able to be powerful, complex, smart, opinionated and taken seriously, even if they are beautiful. Even more, I would love to see women held to different standards, other than the superficial ones that we’re held to.

Amber Heard
The practice of executing such offenders is a relic of the past and is inconsistent with evolving standards of decency in a civilized society.

John Paul Stevens
TSA serves as the operator, administrator and regulator for the nation’s transportation security. But in fact, the TSA bureaucracy does all it can to thwart any conversion to a system with more private-sector operations and strong federal oversight and standards. This agency cannot, and should not, do it all.

John Mica
Bitumen, the new national staple, is redefining the character and destiny of Canada. Rapid development of the tar sands has created a foreign policy that favours the export of bitumen to the United States and lax immigration standards that champion the import of global bitumen workers.

Andrew Nikiforuk
I listen to music all the time, and a lot of the things I cover are the standards of my time, and they work for me.

Dianne Reeves
When you repent and operate on God’s standards, now you have restoration and reconciliation.

Tony Evans
What happens when an art form becomes ambiguous, I think, is that the standards are lowered. You can say anything is jazz. So I think it’s important to reflect on what made jazz so special.

Stefon Harris
I’ve upped my standards. Now, up yours.

Pat Paulsen
I’ve always tried to set my standards high on a daily basis.

Kyle Korver
When I’m dealing with Britney Spears and Katy Perry, these massive brands, like, really, very Coca-Cola, you know what I mean? There are certain kinds of standards. There are risks you can take, and there’s risks that you don’t. And I think I’m interested in taking a little more risk in my own music.

Bonnie McKee
The big legislative updates that we need to compete in the 21st century and to raise living standards have been blocked by a reluctance to seek common ground.

John Delaney
Dove is encouraging people to set their own standards worldwide. To be their own unique selves. To not allow others to shame them for accepting their own bodies and styles.

Rain Dove
I do very few standards. Hardly any. Other people’s tunes that I do are usually obscure tunes, for the most part, although I do a couple of Duke Ellington tunes that are well known.

Mose Allison
To be in the England squad, you have got to be playing well and your standards have got to be up there.

Jack Butland
Jazz musicians have always taken the standards of their time and performed them with a jazz sensibility.

Dianne Reeves
Financial institutions, the corporate world and civil society – all must uphold high standards of probity in their working. Only a genuine partnership between the Government and its people can bring about positive change to create a just society.

Pratibha Patil
Nothing is a hobby – each discipline is its own world with its own high standards. Of course, every artist has ‘minor works’ that they do, but I don’t think I have any ‘minor disciplines.’

Patti Smith
Rising living standards – whether in a village, a region, a nation, or the world – depend first on specialization: on letting people concentrate on what they do best and trade with others who specialize in other things.

Virginia Postrel
Those things that are basically foundational – hard work, high standards, playing for your teammates, putting the team first – those things are ingrained in my fabric.

Brian Flores
By all standards, except for ‘Star Trek’ standards, 98 episodes of any television show is a wildly successful run.

Scott Bakula
Engineers in the developed world should be arguing not for protectionism but for trade agreements that seek to establish rules that result in a real rise in living standards. This will ensure that outsourcing is a positive force in the developing nation’s economy and not an exploitative one.

Brian Behlendorf
Everybody gives Trump an extremely bad rap. He’s a businessman, so he is not trying to rub your back and tell you everything is going to be OK. He is going to set standards and, when everything is in chaos, you need someone who is willing to do what needs to be done.

Bobby Lashley
If we would only give, just once, the same amount of reflection to what we want to get out of life that we give to the question of what to do with a two weeks’ vacation, we would be startled at our false standards and the aimless procession of our busy days.

Dorothy Canfield Fisher
When it comes to professionalism, it makes sense to talk about being professional in IT. Standards are vital so that IT professionals can provide systems that last.

Tim Berners-Lee
By the late Nineties, we had become a more visual nation. Big-money taste moved to global standards – new architecture, design and show-off contemporary art. The Sloane domestic aesthetic – symmetry, class symbolism and brown furniture – became as unfashionable as it had been hot in the early Eighties.

Peter York
No matter how talented you are or naturally gifted you are, there’s no substitute to hard work if you got to maintain standards.

Rohit Sharma
I do have very high customer service standards – I’d send back sushi because it’s too fishy.

Greg McHugh
There’s a hardening of the culture. Reality TV has lowered the standards of entertainment. You’re left wondering about the legitimacy of relationships. It’s probably harder to entertain the same people with a more classic form of writing, and romantic comedies are a classic genre.

Nancy Meyers
When governors such as John Engler, Mike Huckabee, and Mike Pence were driving the conversation on voluntary high standards driven by local voices, it all made sense.

Betsy DeVos
WTO is not the forum for labour standards. Next, the U.S. will argue the time zone difference is an unfair competitive advantage enjoyed by India that enables our software engineers to work while the Americans sleep.

Jairam Ramesh
We don’t have very many nights out on our own, and by most people’s standards we don’t have much of a social life. But for us the compromise works, and I think the best thing I ever did was to have a family.

Dido Harding
We very clearly do not want an authoritarian regime… setting standards in the world marketplace.

John Ratcliffe
I think there’s a great homogenizing force that software imposes on people and limits the way they think about what’s possible on the computer. Of course, it’s also a great liberating force that makes possible, you know, publishing and so forth, and standards, and so on.

Golan Levin
In addition to offering benefits to those who invest, carry out research, and create jobs, higher taxes on land and real-estate speculation would redirect capital toward productivity-enhancing spending – the key to long-term improvement in living standards.

Joseph Stiglitz
In most languages, ‘control’ is the first synonym for the word ‘manage.’ Control is about spotting and correcting deviations from pre-defined standards; thus to control, one must first constrain.

Gary Hamel
Mother set impossibly high standards for us, creating tremendous pressures and undermining our ability to accomplish whatever modest aims we may have set for ourselves.

Katharine Graham
Training a reliable military force that adheres to Western norms and standards is the work of a generation, not a few months.

David Ignatius
No student of Chinese history can say that the Chinese are incapable of religious experience, even when judged by the standards of medieval Europe or pious India.

Hu Shih
I mean regardless of what kind of success we have, this is one of the most gratifying things in the world – to work with your friends, and make good music, by our standards.

Fab Moretti
The best thing they’ve told me is to be forgiving of yourself as a mother. I think you go into it, and you want to hold yourself to the highest standards, and you want to be perfect. That’s not possible. You make mistakes and learn.

Camilla Luddington
The public, investors and stakeholders now expect higher standards of tax compliance and more transparency from large businesses about the way they approach taxation.

David Gauke
English girls’ schools today providing the higher education are, so far as my knowledge goes, worthily representative of that astonishing rise in the intellectual standards of women which has taken place in the last half-century.

Mary Augusta Ward
What I am for is protecting, with the highest standards in our courts, the religious liberty of Hoosiers.

Mike Pence
I’ve heard from pre-K and kindergarten teachers alike that the Common Core is inappropriately pushing written literacy standards when the focus should be on the development of oral literacy skills. And that’s actually delaying the development of literacy.

Randi Weingarten
Besides kind of like the Wes Anderson, or, of course, a lot of the European movies, most everybody in the States, the big studios, make pretty much the same film. And we’re kind of held to Pixar standards, or Disney standards, as it’s kind of always been in the animation industry.

Genndy Tartakovsky
I am not here concerned with intent, but with scientific standards, especially the ability to tell the difference between a fact, an opinion, a hypothesis, and a hole in the ground.

Serge Lang
No manager in the world gets good results all the time and you know there’s people always ready to have a snipe. In fact I’m my own biggest critic, I really am. Because my own standards are so high, I criticise myself behind the scenes more than perhaps I should, according to people who know me well.

Glenn Hoddle
People want to be liked by other people, so they adopt other people’s standards, but for me, my standard had always been true.

Kirk Cameron
Africa’s vibrancy and entrepreneurial spirit is un-matched. There’s huge potential here to grow business, create jobs, and to improve living standards.

Paul Polman
When I play live in restaurants and cafes, I don’t play my own stuff. I play jazz and ‘American Songbook’ standards, and I’ll fuse it with top 40.

Darren Criss
If you don’t live up to somebody’s standards, you get hammered.

Anthony Rendon
In the ‘Nike Economy,’ there are no standards, no borders and no rules. Clearly, the global economy isn’t working for workers in China and Indonesia and Burma any more than it is for workers here in the United States.

John Sweeney
The challenges of delivering more housing so people can enjoy the benefits of home ownership and improving standards and choice in public services can also be met with a strong Conservative policy agenda.

Priti Patel
You don’t have to live up to anyone else’s standards, you don’t have to look like anyone else, you don’t have to compare yourself to anyone else. You being you is enough, and you putting your positivity and good vibes out into the world, once you get to that point absolutely everything will fall into place.

Lizzie Velasquez
The repudiation of the primacy of understanding means the repudiation of the norms of judgment as well, and hence the abandonment of all ethical standards.

Johan Huizinga
Expanded credit access has helped households maintain living standards when suffering job loss, illness, or other unexpected contingencies.

Janet Yellen
What we hear now is great-sounding records with great-sounding grooves and loops. And the sound of these records is irresistible, but the craft of songwriting is just about over. That’s why, whenever I get an opportunity to do an album full of standards, I jump at it because I miss it.

Barry Manilow
Berners-Lee started the World Wide Web as a set of protocols for transferring, linking and addressing documents to send over the Net. Without the global reach and open technical standards of the Internet, the Web could never have proliferated as it did.

Katie Hafner
Ethics or simple honesty is the building blocks upon which our whole society is based, and business is a part of our society, and it’s integral to the practice of being able to conduct business, that you have a set of honest standards.

Kerry Stokes
My dad always had very high standards for me, from day one.

Doug McMillon
I think society is so hard on young women. Growing up, the images that I saw, the standards that I had to live up to in terms of how I looked and how I fit into my social groups – it was a lot of pressure.

Shannon Purser
There has to be active, hands-on management in concert with the manager to lead the organization and make sure that the standards that we set for the organization as a whole are being lived up to.

Theo Epstein
EPA’s Affordable Clean Energy rule (ACE), would restore the states’ proper role under the Clean Air Act and our system of federalism. Our plan would allow states to establish standards of performance that meet EPA emissions guidelines.

Andrew R. Wheeler
Women and young girls are constantly judging themselves by standards that aren’t real.

Valerie Harper
The food system is not a free market. In this country, we impose reasonably high standards of animal welfare – but we haven’t applied the same standards to food we import, so all we’re really doing is exporting cruelty from Britain elsewhere, and at the same time undermining our farmers.

Zac Goldsmith
I think it’s good to not edit your life too much, or you give people different standards.

Florence Pugh
If you’re going to use standards as criteria for signing musicians, you can sign thousands. If you’re going to use some sort of conceptual interpretation that’s based on the tradition of those standards, but is trying to move away from it, you’re down to about 10 people or so.

Branford Marsalis
Where the private sector, or anyone else, has skills, knowledge and resources that can help to deliver a high quality of education and to raise standards, we should use them.

Estelle Morris
I often feel that with a crime story, the moral standards have to be higher. You’re deal with real victims and with real consequences.

David Grann
With the commissioning of new schools undertaken by a local director of school standards, decisions will be fair and transparent, rooted in the needs of the local community. The admissions code and the role of the adjudicator will also be strengthened to provide fairness for all children.

David Blunkett
A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride.

C. S. Lewis
The democratic idealist is prone to make light of the whole question of standards and leadership because of his unbounded faith in the plain people.

Irving Babbitt
Everybody aspires to an affordable home, a secure job, better living standards, reliable healthcare and a decent pension. My generation took those things for granted, and so should future generations.

Jeremy Corbyn
Obviously this is the world descending into worse and worse standards of targeting civilians both in state violence in Iraq, Gaza and so on and the terrorist retaliation.

Clare Short
We were right to make the case for the U.K. to negotiate a comprehensive customs union with the E.U. And we are right to argue for a strong single market deal, based on common standards, protections and regulations: the right balance of rights and obligation.

Keir Starmer
Companies that operate across borders have the expertise SMEs need. Who better to help smallholder farmers navigate complex sustainability standards than the companies who demand – or set – them?

Arancha Gonzalez
Leaders must exemplify integrity and earn the trust of their teams through their everyday actions. When you do this, you set high standards for everyone at your company. And when you do so with positive energy and enthusiasm for shared goals and purpose, you can deeply connect with your team and customers.

Marillyn Hewson
I was born in California, raised a vegetarian, and love science fiction, so don’t tell me how I need to be in order to fit your standards.

Aisha Tyler
My dad was a composer and a musician, but he never finished high school. His formal education was rather minimal from the standards of today’s college graduates and Ph.D.’s, but he had a deep interest in questions of science and questions of the universe.

Brian Greene
For something to be profitable doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best thing in the world for the director. You judge a movie by different standards – I’ve worked on comedies, and now I’ve worked on superhero movies, and the reviews are almost parenthetical in both of those genres.

Jon Favreau
I realize that dancers have worked long and hard for standards. However, on occasion, I think that it’s good to examine one’s heart and ask why are we dancing.

Twyla Tharp
It’s nice to stand out and not have to conform to all the beauty standards that just don’t even make sense anymore.

Bria Vinaite
When it comes to the teapot tempest that is the Hillary Clinton email imbroglio, the real controversy isn’t about politics or regulations. It’s about journalism and the weak standards employed to manufacture the scandal du jour.

Kurt Eichenwald
It’s very clear that there’s a lot of double standards going on. Should there be a 30mph speed limit? Of course there bloody should. And certainly with kids and school food, kids need to be nannied for sure. So give them a bloody good meal at school.

Jamie Oliver
The idea for which this nation stands will not survive if the highest goal free man can set themselves is an amiable mediocrity. Excellence implies striving for the highest standards in every phase of life.

John W. Gardner
When I purchased my home, it was very strict underwriting standards. I had to provide two pay stubs, two years’ tax returns, three months of bank statements, all sorts of credit card information.

John Paulson
Russian democracy is the power of the Russian people with their own traditions of national self-government, and not the realisation of standards foisted on us from outside.

Vladimir Putin
We should insist that governments receiving American aid live up to standards of accountability and transparency, and we should support countries that embrace market reforms, democracy, and the rule of law.

Lee H. Hamilton
If Trump wants to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, the rest of the world should impose a carbon-adjustment tax on U.S. exports that do not comply with global standards.

Joseph Stiglitz
I do have high standards. I look at everything I have done and think, ‘Why wasn’t that better?’ Part of my motivation is from crippling self-doubt – I have got to prove myself wrong.

Michael Palin
I don’t deny that there are problems in the intelligence world, but I would argue that in the UK we try to uphold the highest standards in the world.

William Hague
We should ensure that the people-first principle runs through the whole of Party work as appropriate for its nature as a motherly party to make the climate of respecting, loving and depending on them pervade it and Party work focus on improving their living standards.

Kim Jong-un
Different parents have different standards for their children.

Penelope Spheeris
A man who gets divorced is not forever going to be talked about for it. There are very different standards that we have for women than we have for men.

Bianca Jagger
A lot of the drawbacks, a lot of the difficulties that Uber has had, have been completely predictable, and they handled them poorly, so by their own standards they made a lot of mistakes, and I think that they would admit that.

Brad Stone
I want young girls and women to feel like they connect with me and that they don’t have to aspire for unreal beauty or fashion standards.

Ananya Panday
We don’t live with the community of yesteryear. And we don’t enjoy the public services Europeans do. So we turn to the market. Once we do, we find that service providers raise the standards of personal life, so that we come to feel we need them to live our ‘best’ personal lives.

Arlie Russell Hochschild
I am the columnist who plays the would-this-happen-to-a-white-guy game because there are just too many double standards. But I’m equal opportunity with the game, including Hispanics, Asians, women and men.

Jemele Hill
I want to be great, and that’s holding myself to my standards, not anybody else’s.

Myles Garrett
We’re going to be very strong with employers in all of our aspects, because I think there’s been too much of this idea let’s try and get along here, and we’ve eroded some of our standards.

James P. Hoffa
Once you start worrying about a national football championship, then you begin to worry about getting the quality of athlete, and the numbers needed, to win a national championship. And that worry leads to pressure to compromise academic standards to admit those athletes.

Derek Bok
We spend millions of dollars per year supplying more than adequate meals and a Koran to every detainee along with a prayer rug that meets their religious standards.

Bill Shuster
I had no ambition to be a writer because the books I read were too good, my standards were too high.

Haruki Murakami
The Common Core State Standards are based on the best international research. They are built on the standards used by the most effective education systems around the world, including Singapore, Finland, Canada and the U.K.

Rex Tillerson
Brands who come to China, often they just care about price – so they actually drive the suppliers to cut corners on environmental standards to win a contract.

Ma Jun
Well firstly, that points certainly at the need for international standards on biometrics that would move in the same direction so that we can have the same technical requirements.

Asa Hutchinson
Even the most cynical can hardly be surprised by the antics of Nixon and his accomplices as they are gradually revealed. It matters little, at this point, where the exact truth lies in the maze of perjury, evasion, and of contempt for the normal – hardly inspiring – standards of political conduct.

Noam Chomsky
I certainly didn’t think of myself as gifted. The standards for being gifted in my environment were if you were good in Little League or if you were good in football.

James Cameron
There is only one person in the State Department that can sign off on State Department personnel being in a facility that doesn’t meet security standards, and it’s the secretary of state.

James Lankford
The most difficult thing is to make sure the standards remain high in each restaurant.

Joel Robuchon
Our objective in regulation should be to put in place tough enough regulation and capital and liquidity standards that we level the playing field and make it costly.

Janet Yellen
I set myself high standards on the pitch and I know I have not always lived up to them this season.

Rio Ferdinand
The Christian market has less competition and lower standards.

Jerry B. Jenkins
Cooperation and respect for each other will advance the cause of human rights worldwide. Confrontation, vilification, and double standards will not.

Robert Mugabe
We can lift standards of living for working families in this country. We can help small businesses create jobs. And we can have a beneficial impact on the economy as a whole if we do tax reform right.

Susan Collins
There are standards of the game that FIFA governs and promises to uphold.

Abby Wambach
Out of the past come the standards for judging the present; standards in turn to be shaped by the practice of present-day dramatists into broader standards for the next generation.

George Pierce Baker
All over the world, independent and strong civil society – NGOs, faith leaders, and other community advocates – help governments solve problems and better serve their people better by shining a light on the issues that matter most – like education standards, access to healthcare, the rule of law, and economic opportunity.

Ben Rhodes
Undermine their pompous authority, reject their moral standards, make anarchy and disorder your trademarks. Cause as much chaos and disruption as possible but don’t let them take you ALIVE.

Sid Vicious
I raised the standards on recruiting.

Mark Esper
It is possible to set your standards too high, which can undermine a man’s confidence and ability to perform. Instead of reaching for the stars and settling for the moon, there is considerable evidence that man is better served reaching for a blade of grass and settling for an under-the-table handshake deal.

Jason Whitlock
Even when you’re 50, you can make the effort to improve your standards.

Edmund Hillary
I wound up going to the Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, which was a really life-changing experience that’s still the most intense working environment I’ve ever been part of. Even now, as a professional actor, I’ve never once been held to the standards I was held to at my high school.

Barrett Wilbert Weed
I started out playing traditional jazz, and I still do: I love standards, I love the music. But it must move on, and it must live and breathe, and continue to grow, and continue to change, and continue to mesh with other music – all that kind of stuff. Jazz can be on the playground too, you know.

Robert Glasper
Our ACE proposal will reduce CO2 approximately the same levels that the Clean Power Plan would have, if it had been implemented. And we’re reducing CO2 from our CAFE standards.

Andrew R. Wheeler
I have a very focused agenda. And I hold myself to the highest standards. I judge myself more harshly than any voter, or any New Yorker, will.

Kathy Hochul
You have competition every day because you set such high standards for yourself that you have to go out every day and live up to that.

Michael Jordan
Bioethics is a very, very important field. As we get more and more in the arena of understanding science and getting better opportunities, the fact that you can do things with biological sciences that have an impact on a human being means you must have ethical standards.

Anthony Fauci
As we embark on something as ambitious as the Common Core, educators must be able to teach to the standards with the necessary support and collaboration and without the sense that there will be dire consequences if students, schools and their tests don’t make the grade.

Randi Weingarten
To become the kind of person you want to become, you’ve got to have discipline. It’s easier to keep to your standards 100 percent of the time versus 98 percent of the time.

Clayton M. Christensen
It may sound funny to others, but there is a sense of freedom when I am able to live on my own, and as per my own set standards.

Soha Ali Khan
A lot of these so-called left positions are actually centrist by the standards of the American people, just not by members of the American Congress.

Pete Buttigieg
The time has come for all evangelists to practice full financial disclosure. The world is watching how we walk and how we talk. We must have the highest standards of morality, ethics and integrity if we are to continue to have influence.

Billy Graham
Cooperation and respect for each other will advance the cause of human rights worldwide. Confrontation, vilification, and double standards will not.

Robert Mugabe
Policies to strengthen education and training, to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation, and to promote capital investment, both public and private, could all potentially be of great benefit in improving future living standards in our nation.

Janet Yellen
I have my own high standards for what I want in a partner and how I want to be treated. I bring a lot to the table. I’m not talking about material things but what I have to offer as a person – love and loyalty and all the things that make a good relationship.

Jennifer Lopez
In addition to fines, violators of decency standards could be required to air public service announcements serving educational and informational needs of children.

Charles W. Pickering
It is important for poets and writers today to know their shortcomings, and be able to edit their own work as well as reject them if they are not up to their standards.

Crime stories are often sensationalized. They can provoke lower standards.

David Grann
Growing up, I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test, and there were a thousand ways to fail, a thousand ways to betray yourself, to not live up to someone else’s standards of what was accepted, of what was normal.

Wentworth Miller
Years ago when you’d go to a working group most of the people in the working group would be from universities. Now most of the people are from companies who are building internet products and care what the standards turn out to be.

Jon Postel
To me, there is nothing but puerility in a tale in which the human form – and local human passions and conditions and standards – are depicted as native to other worlds and universes.

H. P. Lovecraft
The killjoys initiated automobile crash standards so rigorous that we can’t buy a car that hasn’t been dropped from the top of a phone pole with our whole family strapped inside.

P. J. O’Rourke
As far as natural calamities are concerned, Odisha had a very bad reputation before 2000 when we took over the government. After that, we have achieved international standards as far as controlling the effects of natural calamities. In fact, even the United Nations have complimented us on this.

Naveen Patnaik
Even by Silicon Valley standards, PayPal’s vision was massively ambitious.

Reid Hoffman
One of the standards on which your happiness is based, now and in your future, is moral purity.

Ezra Taft Benson
Our duty was to declare God’s standards to the world: no adultery, no fornication, no gays, no idolatry.

Megan Phelps-Roper
We may feel the pain of falling back from a level of affluence to which we have grown accustomed, but most people in developed countries are still, by historical standards, extraordinarily well off.

Peter Singer
To far too many, science is a four-letter word, and under the modern media’s false equivalency standards, a handful of skeptics are viewed as counterweights to the vast majority of scientists who acknowledge mankind’s proven role in global warming.

Christine Pelosi
In an era of global value chains, worldwide sourcing and the never-ending search for new markets, we must be careful to avoid the proliferation of regional standards. A multilateral approach holds wider benefits for more actors.

Roberto Azevedo
We tried our damnedest to make it a special entertainment, but I’ll admit I’m a contributor to the decline in TV standards.

Noel Edmonds
No matter how you hire, ensuring the systems are in place to manage the process will be critical in allowing you to find the right people to carry the standards you set. Don’t neglect that duty!

Michael Gerber
The simple facts are these: We need higher standards in our schools, and we need to hold teachers accountable for the outcomes in their classrooms.

Sonny Perdue
We often take for granted that our lights will come on when we flip the light switch, but the reality is that our reliability standards and the current state of the transmission grid leave us all vulnerable to blackouts.

Richard Burr
