Unless you are a genius, it is best to aim at being intelligible.
To place oneself in the position of God is painful: being God is equivalent to being tortured. For being God means that one is in harmony with all that is, including the worst. The existence of the worst evils is unimaginable unless God willed them.
You never achieve success unless you like what you are doing.
But now I really don’t want to work unless I really, really care about a project.
We need to look to the future. You can’t come up with new things unless you constantly forget the past. There’s no reason to keep wearing the same pair of pants.
I’ve been to therapists my whole life. I find the less attention I pay to food, the healthier I am. Any obsession is dangerous. And a whole country that’s obsessed with one thing, unless it’s, like, jeans, it’s very dangerous. Everyone’s obsessed right now with carbohydrates in this country. It’s ridiculous.
Individuals have little opportunity to get elected to Parliament under the label of the government party… unless they are in good standing with the Prime Minister and pledged to be cooperative.
You will find poetry nowhere unless you bring some of it with you.
Philosophy means nothing unless it is connected to birth, death, and the continuance of life. Anytime you are going to build a society that works, you have to begin from nature and the body.
If your watch is slow by just four minutes, that’s not much – unless you’ve been warned that if you’re even one minute late ever again you will be fired. Then four minutes make a big difference.
Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.
It is also true that one can write nothing readable unless one constantly struggles to efface one’s own personality. Good prose is like a windowpane.
It became very obvious to me that in the United States of America, a fluffy ethnic disabled chick was never going to get a job unless she did stand-up.
The Department of Energy is a critical component of our efforts to curtail climate change; that work will be less effective unless we collaboratively rebuild confidence in the agency and its programs.
I am firmly of the opinion that women who make a lot of effort to hang onto their looks in middle age (unless they are beauties, entertainers or prostitutes) are rather sad, as one should surely have something more substantial to recommend one by this time, such as kindness or cleverness.
There is hardly a man on earth who will take advice unless he is certain that it is positively bad.
You can’t, or you shouldn’t, be nominated for an Oscar unless you’ve turned in a performance that’s special.
I regret to say that we of the FBI are powerless to act in cases of oral-genital intimacy, unless it has in some way obstructed interstate commerce.
J. Edgar Hoover
Golf has become so manicured, so perfect. The greens, the fairways. I don’t like golf carts. I like walking. Some clubs won’t let you in unless you have a caddy and a cart.
But is it not the fact that religion emanates from the nature, from the moral state of the individual? Is it not therefore true that unless the nature be completely exercised, the moral state harmonized, the religion cannot be healthy?
No man is to be credited for his mere authority’s sake, unless he can show Scripture for the maintenance of his opinion.
Philosophy is written in this grand book, the universe, which stands continually open to our gaze. But the book cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and read the letters in which it is composed.
I’ve just done a commercial in the U.S. in which I talk about stocks, shares and bonds. Everyone is amazed. They ask me: ‘You really know about that stuff or did you just learn it for the commercial?’ I tell them I wouldn’t do it unless I understood and had an interest.
You can’t call it an adventure unless it’s tinged with danger. The greatest danger in life, though, is not taking the adventure at all. To have the objective of a life of ease is death. I think we’ve all got to go after our own Everest.
There can be no liberty unless there is economic liberty.
The streets of New York are diverse, but when you go into a Broadway show, unless Denzel Washington is in it, or Fantasia’s in it, it’s a lot of old white people and gay men.
I swear my car won’t run unless I’m picking my nose: At least, I’m that superstitious about it, so I don’t want to take any chances.
The wisdom acquired with the passage of time is a useless gift unless you share it.
I don’t like to cry in public, unless I’m getting paid for it.
I don’t think that you can invent on behalf of customers unless you’re willing to think long-term, because a lot of invention doesn’t work. If you’re going to invent, it means you’re going to experiment, and if you’re going to experiment, you’re going to fail, and if you’re going to fail, you have to think long term.
Scandal is an importunate wasp, against which we must make no movement unless we are quite sure that we can kill it; otherwise it will return to the attack more furious than ever.
People cannot be free unless they are willing to sacrifice some of their interests to guarantee the freedom of others. The price of democracy is the ongoing pursuit of the common good by all of the people.
No one ever gets far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once a day.
Unless a president can protect the privacy of the advice he gets, he cannot get the advice he needs.
Richard M. Nixon
I will never repeat something verbatim on the air unless I know it’s accurate. And when you go to the source, sometimes there’s a better story beyond the original story. That happens all the time.
This submission is a restraint of liberty, but could be of no effect as to the good intended, unless it were general; nor general, unless it were natural.
You can’t be a resource for others unless you nourish yourself.
You can’t do it unless you can imagine it.

Charles Horton Cooley
I have not much love for the bright lights – unless it’s the sun creeping up over the horizon.
Citizens of Ukraine will never enjoy the beauty of peace unless we settle down our relations with Russia.
Information is a source of learning. But unless it is organized, processed, and available to the right people in a format for decision making, it is a burden, not a benefit.
What an artist is trying to do for people is bring them closer to something, because of course art is about sharing. You wouldn’t be an artist unless you wanted to share an experience, a thought.
Hypotheses should be subservient only in explaining the properties of things but not assumed in determining them, unless so far as they may furnish experiments.
I think standup is pretty good for an introvert because you are performing, but, I mean, it’s on your own terms. There are so many people in the room, but it’s a one-sided conversation. And you actually don’t have to interact – unless you want to.
You can’t invent Google, Facebook or the iPod unless you’ve mastered the basics, are willing to put in long hours and can pick yourself up from the floor when life knocks you down the first 10 times.
Nothing is miserable unless you think it is so.
I don’t reflect much, unless I’m talking to the media. I have more of a ‘Forward, march!’ kind of attitude.
We may be up against a stone wall, but we don’t have to bloody our heads against it unless we choose to.
I don’t think I’m ever going to get to the point where people run across a freeway to take a picture of me. I really don’t see it getting to that level of hysteria unless I have an affair with the Queen of Sweden or something like that.
I do earnestly wish to see the distinction of sex confounded in society, unless where love animates the behaviour.
It is not worth the paper it is written on unless it is backed by the kind of force that will make the other side consider the penalties too heavy to break the agreement.
Strategic planning is worthless – unless there is first a strategic vision.
Watches are the only jewelry men can wear, unless you’re Mr. T.
In theatres, you’re kind of disconnected. Also, it’s way too big for the likes of me. Unless you’re Robin Williams or someone that can fill a stage with movement and energy, it just looks like a small man on a big stage.
As much as I value an union of all the states, I would not admit the southern states into the union, unless they agreed to the discontinuance of this disgraceful trade, because it would bring weakness and not strength to the union.
We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it.
Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes… but no plans.
‘He means well’ is useless unless he does well.
Unless you’re Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant, there are few guys who can do comedy and drama.
In Washington, no one believes anything unless it comes from ‘The New Yorker,’ ‘New York Times’ editorial page, or ‘The Washington Post.’
What part of 9/11 is big? If the future continues to reinterpret the past, it could be argued that 9/11 provides irrefutable proof that unless there is some other way that we learn to deal with our technology or deal with our brothers and sisters, it is goodbye as a species. That genie does not leave that bottle.
I am sure of this: that no one can write a book which children will like unless he write it for himself first.
A. A. Milne
I think it’s always the moments that are the trials that end up making you become a hero in the end. You’re not a hero unless you’ve gone through the trials. And it makes these moments so much sweeter, so much better. I don’t believe in ‘deserved,’ but I might believe in ‘earned.’
It is not enough for us to restrain from doing evil, unless we shall also do good.
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.
J. K. Rowling
Unless you have bad times, you can’t appreciate the good times.
And I’m not apolitical – I’m very specific in my politics. But a lot of the time it’s nobody’s business unless you’re over at my house having dinner.
I didn’t know how to kill off a character unless I was able, as a narrator, to get really complicated. Because it was a big deal. I’d never killed a character before.
Unless we keep this planet healthy, everything else is for naught.
I don’t go out unless I’m working. My quality time is when I’m doing nothing.
Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it ‘white’.
The only way you can get good, unless you’re a genius, is to copy. That’s the best thing. Just steal.
The most important single central fact about a free market is that no exchange takes place unless both parties benefit.
When I first came to L.A., I was plotting out my career choices as if I actually had a choice. Unless you’re Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, impossibly good-looking, or look like a freak, you have to be malleable and open to everything that comes your way because that’s what makes it possible to pay your mortgage and eat.
Although there have been warnings that it was coming for years, the Alzheimer’s epidemic is here now and millions more families will be touched by this progressive – and ultimately fatal – disease unless its course can be altered.
To me our bombing policy appears to be suicidal. Not because it does not do vast damage to our enemy, it does; but because, simultaneously, it does vast damage to our peace aim, unless that aim is mutual economic and social annihilation.
J. F. C. Fuller
You’re not anyone in America unless you’re on TV.
Who doesn’t want to have a yacht? But I would prefer to invest my money in something else. But I love them. I just wouldn’t buy one unless I had a lot, a lot of money.
We cannot perform our tasks to the best of our power, unless we think well of our own capacity.
We can believe that we know where the world should go. But unless we’re in touch with our customers, our model of the world can diverge from reality. There’s no substitute for innovation, of course, but innovation is no substitute for being in touch, either.
America is never wholly herself unless she is engaged in high moral principle. We as a people have such a purpose today. It is to make kinder the face of the nation and gentler the face of the world.
George H. W. Bush
Anybody they ever offer me in fighting, I’ll probably never be surprised, unless it’s the guy’s first fight in the UFC.
B. J. Penn
There are two good rules which ought to be written on every heart – never to believe anything bad about anybody unless you positively know it to be true; never to tell even that unless you feel that it is absolutely necessary, and that God is listening.
Henry Van Dyke
No intelligent idea can gain general acceptance unless some stupidity is mixed in with it.
Publicity is like poison; it doesn’t hurt unless you swallow it.
Because of the fashion, the young people don’t have any access to the history of music, unless people like me revive it. There are very few people to revive it, because you can’t earn any money doing it.
Unless something real cool comes along, I will probably be doing features, so long as I can make a living doing that. Otherwise, I will do another show.
I’ve experienced several different healing methodologies over the years – counseling, self-help seminars, and I’ve read a lot – but none of them will work unless you really want to heal.
I’ve never set out consciously to write American music. I don’t know what that would be unless the obvious Appalachian folk references.
An athletic man, or whatever you want to call him, will only look good in a very classic suit, a pair of classic jeans, athletic clothes or simply naked. Forget fashion. This is not going to happen, unless you want to look like a Chippendales dancer in designer clothes.
You can’t change nothing unless you want to change it, and then if you don’t like whatever situation it is, just grow from it, learn from it, don’t let it happen again.
Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.
I’m a novelist, so I can’t write about ideas unless they’re attached to people.
I have never had a dietician and I never will, unless I get a disease.
It’s only words… unless they’re true.
It breaks my heart to see these young, really talented bands getting chewed up into the system. I remember a time if you’d signed to a major label it was such a sell out! But now… unless you’ve signed to a big label, you’re a failure now.
I’m here. I’m not going anywhere. No matter what the injury – unless it’s completely debilitating – I’m going to be the same player I’ve always been. I’ll figure it out. I’ll make some tweaks, some changes, but I’m still coming.
Fiction is based on reality unless you’re a fairytale artist.
Hunter S. Thompson
You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.
But the dollars spent on economic incentives and new investment strategies are wasted unless we seriously address the two most important economic issues in Kansas: education and health care.
My criticism is too severe sometimes and that is not good. But why don’t you start doing your work unless your leader flies into a rage? It is not that you cannot do it but that you don’t want to do it.
I think that’s the main threat in Bosnia and Rwanda and Zaire. There doesn’t seem to be much willingness to engage these problems unless they directly affect national security interests.
In my solitude, many miles from men and houses, I am in a childishly happy and carefree state of mind, which you are incapable of understanding unless someone explains it to you.
I want to be convinced with my work and unless that happens I can’t make a movie.
Aishwarya R. Dhanush
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
Dr. Johnson has said that the chief glory of a country arises from its authors. But then that is only as they are oracles of wisdom; unless they teach virtue, they are more worthy of a halter than of the laurel.
A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to take it off of you.
Love always involves responsibility, and love always involves sacrifice. And we do not really love Christ unless we are prepared to face His task and to take up His Cross.
Unless people can be kept in the dark, it is best for those who love the truth to give them the full light.
Speak not of my debts unless you mean to pay them.
Whether you’re successful or not, you’ll never actually feel the joys of accomplishment unless you love yourself. Success can be very difficult to deal with. You have to stay in the center. If you let your success define you, then you’re really just setting yourself up for failure.
Unless you are a good bowler, you won’t be in the India A side.
I’m not someone so much interested in exploring a slice of life unless that is down the corridor, around the corner, up the alley, and down the rabbit hole. That, I like.
The liberties of none are safe unless the liberties of all are protected.
William O. Douglas
The people in charge, globally, are maniacs. They are maniacs, and unless we do something about it these people are going to deprive us of a future.
You don’t give yourself a nickname unless you’re bloody struggling.
Everyone in the Chinese economic world knows that the country is not going to move out of cheap-workhouse status, toward the realm of ‘real’ rich-country corporate power and prosperity, unless (among other changes) it begins removing these price distortions.
The Congress is virtually incapable of passing any reforms unless they first get permission from the powerful special interests who are most affected by the proposal.
One can’t understand the Christian Right and similar movements unless one sees them as reactive – they’re reacting to what they call secular humanism.
Peter L. Berger
For I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand. For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand.
Anselm of Canterbury
Many are needed to plant and water what has been planted now that the faith has spread so far and there are so many people… No matter who plants or waters, God gives no harvest unless what is planted is the faith of Peter and unless he agrees to his teachings.
Soft money will find its way and seep into the political system and corrode it, unless we plug every hole.
But the fact is, nobody gets off drugs unless they really want to, and I really wanted to.
No candy bars unless I’ve had a low blood sugar where I’m shaky.
Mary Tyler Moore
No performer should attempt to bite off red-hot iron unless he has a good set of teeth.
Unless you have been to boarding-school when you are very young, it is absolutely impossible to appreciate the delights of living at home.
We shall not be happy unless we live like good animals, unless we enjoy the exercise of the ordinary functions of life: eating, sleeping, loving, walking, running, swimming, riding, sailing.
We used to play music for fun. Much more than now. Now nobody picks up a guitar unless they’re paid for it.
It is always the best policy to speak the truth, unless, of course, you are an exceptionally good liar.
Jerome K. Jerome
As to the Constitution and the Union, I have taken an oath to support the one, and I cannot do so without preserving the other, unless I commit perjury, which I certainly don’t intend to do. We must cherish the Constitution to the last.
Roosevelt’s strength was that he understood he would never get anything through the Republican old guard, his party, unless the public pressured Congress.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
You can only follow what’s on your mind. In fact, a song is something you write because you can’t sleep unless you write it.
Unless you are completely retired, earning money is the best form of wealth preservation.
You don’t get recognized that much unless you want to get recognized, like if you go to the fancy joints and that. It’s like, L.A. – there are 10 restaurants. If you want to be seen, you go.
In England only uneducated people show off their knowledge; nobody quotes Latin or Greek authors in the course of conversation, unless he has never read them.
You can’t win unless you learn how to lose.
No man goes before his time – unless the boss leaves early.

Unless the reformer can invent something which substitutes attractive virtues for attractive vices, he will fail.
I don’t think that you can address poverty unless you address the lack of affordable housing in the cities.
Men do less than they ought, unless they do all that they can.
Wit is so shining a quality that everybody admires it; most people aim at it, all people fear it, and few love it unless in themselves. A man must have a good share of wit himself to endure a great share of it in another.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
One should not lose one’s temper unless one is certain of getting more and more angry to the end.
William Butler Yeats
Climate change is something that we cannot fix alone – it is the original collective action problem – it will not work unless almost all the large economies of the world act together.
No matter how brilliantly an idea is stated, we will not really be moved unless we have already half thought of it ourselves.
We’ve cut back dramatically. I mean we never go out to dinner unless we go to somebody’s house. We never go to restaurants. That’s too extravagant.
Princess Michael of Kent
Legs’ wouldn’t be ‘Legs’ unless it had that driving synth bass.
Again, we turn down most books that have been self-published unless they have a special track record. We have taken a small number on, however, and sold them to major publishers for a nice sum. But that is an exception to the rule.
I do go back to Russia frequently, about twice a year. I hate the flight, but it’s worth it. My parents have a home in a little village of 12 houses. It’s not on any map, so unless you know it’s there, you won’t find it. Nothing works there; no Internet, no cell phone, and the land line only works sometimes. It’s great!
Anyone with a computer and a design program can create a page layout. But unless you’re trained in design, it won’t look very good and it won’t communicate very well.
Unless I can come in in the morning and smile, walk in the lobby and say, ‘Good morning!’ – if I am stressed – I am not going to do a good job. Everybody is watching us. They are feeding off of our energy.
The knowledge of anything, since all things have causes, is not acquired or complete unless it is known by its causes.
Weekends don’t count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.
Unless man is committed to the belief that all mankind are his brothers, then he labors in vain and hypocritically in the vineyards of equality.
Less is more, unless you’re Al Gore.
In our Constitution, it is said that we have freedom of speech and freedom of expression. In my mind, unless that freedom is total, it is no freedom at all.
There’s nothing anybody who watches my videos doesn’t know about me, unless it’s something genuinely sacred and private to me.
So I think one can say on empirical grounds – not because of some philosophical principle – that you can’t have democracy unless you have a market economy.
Peter L. Berger
Since I was , I’ve had that feeling of, ‘Am I enough? Am I worthy? Am I supposed to be here?’ And my culture and society is telling me that I’m actually not in a lot of ways – unless I have this amount of money, or I’m in this kind of car and I have this kind of job, or I’m famous, or whatever.
Age is of no importance unless you are a cheese.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow

Charity is injurious unless it helps the recipient to become independent of it.
John D. Rockefeller
Pollution from human activities is changing the Earth’s climate. We see the damage that a disrupted climate can do: on our coasts, our farms, forests, mountains, and cities. Those impacts will grow more severe unless we start reducing global warming pollution now.
I got into guitar because no parent will buy their eight-year-old kid drums unless they’re divorced and trying to get back at their wife. You know what I mean?
Castro couldn’t even go to the bathroom unless the Soviet Union put the nickel in the toilet.
Richard M. Nixon
PayPal exists because banks are not interoperable: I can’t efficiently pay you $10 unless I’m giving you a $10 bill. So we’re all on PayPal and Venmo, I need interoperability on the same ledger.
Nothing changes overnight unless you win an Oscar. You move up a little bit, but you are always a little fish – just in a slightly bigger pond.
Emotions have no place in business, unless you do business with them.
Baby boomers don’t go out as much, they aren’t interacting with each other and they would rather stay home and watch TV. That’s the audience for a guy like me, unless I’m doing ‘Bad Santa.’
Billy Bob Thornton
Saddam Hussein has been tenacious in his pursuit of weapons of mass destruction and, unless he is removed from power, he will eventually harm our nation and our allies. Every moment we delay allows him to grow stronger.
Doubt the conventional wisdom unless you can verify it with reason and experiment.
Most people don’t like change. They revolt against it unless they can clearly see the advantage it brings. For that reason, when good leaders prepare to take action or make changes, they take people through a process to get them ready for it.
John C. Maxwell
History shows that where ethics and economics come in conflict, victory is always with economics. Vested interests have never been known to have willingly divested themselves unless there was sufficient force to compel them.
B. R. Ambedkar
Advertising is totally unnecessary. Unless you hope to make money.
Jef I. Richards
Only to the extent that men desire peace and brotherhood can the world be made better. No peace even though temporarily obtained, will be permanent, whether to individuals or nations, unless it is built upon the solid foundation of eternal principles.
David O. McKay
Unless your government is respectable, foreigners will invade your rights; and to maintain tranquillity, it must be respectable – even to observe neutrality, you must have a strong government.
No woman ever falls in love with a man unless she has a better opinion of him than he deserves.
E. W. Howe
There really can be no peace without justice. There can be no justice without truth. And there can be no truth, unless someone rises up to tell you the truth.
Our individual lives cannot, generally, be works of art unless the social order is also.
Charles Horton Cooley
I don’t return anybody’s calls unless it’s going to mean extra money for me. And I’ve completely cut off all relationships with any friends that I had before the show. And I’ve copped an attitude.
Before the Civil War, Canada was at the top of the underground railroad. If you made it into Canada, you were safe unless someone came and hauled you back. That was also true during the Vietnam War for draft resisters.
Now our job, our duty, our responsibility to ensure the safety and security of our citizens cannot be complete unless we guarantee health care security for our citizens.
I don’t think a powerful man would be interesting unless he’d be nice, attractive, with or without the power. Men are interested in powerful men. Women are interested in terrific men!
Love is the terrible secret people are suspected of unless they’re married, then one always suspects they don’t.
Power is dangerous unless you have humility.
Richard J. Daley
Unless there is branding, players will not get adequate payment. Why do we want matches to be televised? Why do we want people to turn up for our matches? That’s how you will generate revenue.
God is of no importance unless He is of supreme importance.
Abraham Joshua Heschel
I don’t feel that no big stone should be put over my head, saying he did this, he did that. Unless there’s something that I really did do. I believe I’m just ordinary. And I’d like for people to think of me that way, as just a guy that tried. Wanted to be loved by other people because he loved people.
B. B. King
Unless each man produces more than he receives, increases his output, there will be less for him than all the others.
I don’t think you can say yes to every opportunity and work the weekends and work the overnight shift unless you’re really passionate about your job. So I encourage everyone to find their passion and go for it.
I try not to give advice unless people ask me.
Stand-up comedy is an art form and it dies unless you expand it.
Part of the whole L.A. mentality that nothing really matters unless it’s a success… is such a shallow and dangerous attitude to have.
Unless a man undertakes more than he possibly can do, he will never do all he can do.
Unless you are a professional, you will find the tart to be a high-maintenance, unforgiving whistle-blower of a pastry.
Unless India stands up to the world, no one will respect us. In this world, fear has no place. Only strength respects strength.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
With every job I watch, I can’t find peace with what I’ve done. It’s never good enough in my mind. I will never be happy if I’m in that mindset, unless I get a review that starts: ‘Once in a generation.’
But once we got them on its feet then they run themselves, unless there’s corrections you have to make.
Never give a golfer an ultimatum unless you’re prepared to lose.
It’s always been my personal feeling that unless you are married, there is something that is not very dignified about talking about who you are dating.
Unless there is recognition that women are most vulnerable… and you do something about social and cultural equality for women, you’re never going to defeat this pandemic.
Unless physicians stand together to fight threats and injustices, our practices cannot remain viable in the future.
What you’re saying is that ‘I, the superior elite, will take care of you.’ Why? Because, you see, that superior, elite group needs to feel superior and elite. And they can’t be superior and elite unless you have a whole lot of people down there groveling around. So you keep them down there by feeding them.
But if nothing but soul, or in soul mind, is qualified to count, it is impossible for there to be time unless there is soul, but only that of which time is an attribute, i.e. if change can exist without soul.
Any dispassionate observer would recognize that on Day One, a start-up has no customers, and unless the founder is a true domain expert, he or she can only guess about the customer, problem, and business model.
Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
There are very honest people who do not think that they have had a bargain unless they have cheated a merchant.
People want to start their own business or become financially independent. But you don’t end up a successful entrepreneur unless you find a way to love the risk, the uncertainty, the repeated failures, and working insane hours on something you have no idea whether will be successful or not.
I don’t think there’s much point in bemoaning the state of the world unless there’s some way you can think of to improve it. Otherwise, don’t bother writing a book; go and find a tropical island and lie in the sun.
You can’t have any successes unless you can accept failure.
I wouldn’t ever set out to hurt anyone deliberately unless it was, you know, important – like a league game or something.
People will have an altered idea of who you are unless they really take time to get to know you, which of course they don’t. They just get what they see, and they take that to the bank.
I know that I had not faith, unless the faith of a devil, the faith of Judas, that speculative, notional, airy shadow, which lives in the head, not in the heart. But what is this to the living, justifying faith, the faith that cleanses from sin?
I think it’s the hardest part for about 80 percent of the guys in the NBA. That’s just the way it is in the NBA, unless you’re a mega superstar. You’re just going to play wherever you go. You try to find the right fit and the right team with the right system and the right coach at the right time.
Books don’t exist unless you read them. And it’s a two way process – you write the book as you read it and you fill in the gaps. You discover it and you put the marks together and without you doing it they’re just marks.
For decades, the journalistic norm had been that the private lives of public officials remained private unless that life impinged on public performance.
A Christian has no right being in a fight unless it’s a spiritual fight.
You won’t understand me unless you understand that I am an odd ball.
I don’t care what people think of me, unless they think I’m mean or something, but I don’t care if they think I’m like someone else because I know I’m not – I’m a total weirdo. I’m not selling a dream; I’m not selling fame like it is some sort of fantastic thing. I’m just trying to sell music and get on with my real life.
I don’t think there’s any reason on Earth why people should have access to automatic and semiautomatic weapons unless they’re in the military or in the police.
The success of the second ‘Austin Powers’ caught us by surprise a little bit. We had decided not to do even a second one, unless the audience wanted it and we could do something better.
Courage is doing what you are afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you are scared.
You’re never going to get the amount of CO2 emitted to go down unless you deal with the one magic metric, which is CO2 per kilowatt-hour.
No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him.
Viktor E. Frankl
I don’t like laughing at people unless they’re in a privileged position or if they’re in authority. If it’s poor people or people who live on the outskirts or on the margins, or the underdog, I’d rather be laughing with them.
Something in us is telling us we’re moving too fast, at a pace dictated by machines rather than by anything human, and that unless we take conscious measures, we’ll permanently be out of breath.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I do not pretend to know precisely what is on foot there; but I think it pretty evident that there is a very free communication between that country and this body, and unless I am greatly mistaken, I see the dwarfish medium by which that communication is kept up.
Benjamin F. Wade
You can’t win the Kentucky Derby unless you’re on a thoroughbred.
You can’t be a sexy person unless you have something sexy to offer. With me, it’s my voice: the way that I sing, the way I express myself when I sing.
With the war and everything that’s going on, unless you’re Susan Sarandon, the best route is to keep your mouth shut. For me it is, anyway!
No trade will be made unless they want the thing more than they want their money.
Roy H. Williams
I just hate going to the gym, unless I need to do cardio once in a while. I think gymming makes you stiff and takes your aura away.
If it is something that I want to do, then I don’t think the audience will hate it. Unless I turn into a megalomaniac and start thinking that Salman Khan can do anything.
Unless you’re flat out dead, you have to think of some other questions like: what’s on the other side? It brings up issues of God, or no God. How does he play into this? Or he, or she, or it? How does it all play into this?
Unless more efforts based upon long-range planning are put into military preparations and operations, it will be very hard to win the final victory.
Well, unless you’ve suffered from panic attacks and social anxiety disorders, which is what I was diagnosed as having, it’s hard to explain it. But you go on stage knowing you’re actually physically going to die. You will keel over and die.
Two things I do well in books are sex and violence, but I don’t want gratuitous sex or violence. The sex and violence are only as graphic as need be. And never included unless it furthers the plot or character development.
Laurell K. Hamilton
It is not patriotic to commit young Americans to war unless our national security clearly requires it.
Nothing happens unless first we dream.
It’s absolutely true that unless you can instill discipline upon yourself, you will never be able to lead others.
Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for – because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.
No one can ever enter the celestial kingdom unless he is strictly honest.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
The way you get to know yourself is by the expressions on other people’s faces, because that’s the only thing that you can see, unless you carry a mirror about.
It is to the last degree distressing to contemplate the state and establishment of our navy… unless the private emolument of individuals in our navy is made superior to that in privateers, it never can become respectable; it never will become formidable. And without a respectable navy – alas, America!
John Paul Jones
A good basic selling idea, involvement and relevancy, of course, are as important as ever, but in the advertising din of today, unless you make yourself noticed and believed, you ain’t got nothin’.
Remember, if you do the same act for 20, 30 years it gets a little boring unless you’ve got something else going for you… And the orchestra really kept you going. They’d laugh at all your jokes, even if they’d been hearing them for the last 30 years.
Life is not an easy matter… You cannot live through it without falling into frustration and cynicism unless you have before you a great idea which raises you above personal misery, above weakness, above all kinds of perfidy and baseness.
Sure, every young person dreams about being famous, but nobody wants to be famous – unless they’re Zsa Zsa Gabor – every single moment of every single day.
In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it.
I won’t talk or deal with a young writer unless I sense he has utterly given his life over to it. It’s a waste of my time. If they don’t feel ‘called’ – why in God’s name would you do this?
I can’t waste more time worrying unless something surfaces that should legitimately cause fear.
Unless things change radically, President Bush will be the first President since Herbert Hoover to have presided over a net loss of jobs during his administration.
Quite frankly, I think political correctness is the worst form of censorship. You’re not allowed to speak your mind unless you’re black, or unless you’re a terrorist, or unless you’re an Arab or a minority people. Then you can say what you like. But if you are like a lot of us you are not supposed to say certain things.
We all want the same thing, love and acceptance. That’s pretty much it. And what I’ve learned is that unless I’m happy with my side of the nickel, it can change violently – quickly.
I saw that giving even all my life to God (supposing it possible to do this and go no further) would profit me nothing unless I gave my heart, yea, all my heart, to Him.
Astrology had an important role in the ancient world. You can’t understand many things unless you know something about astrology – the plays of Shakespeare and so on.
Don’t commit to being a columnist unless you’re willing to do it right. Report your behind off, so you have something original and useful to say. Say it in a way that will interest someone other than you, your family and your sources.
You can’t win unless you have good people with great attitude. They are the ones who won the games. I didn’t win any games. You never saw a coach make a tackle anywhere. My philosophy was to get the best players and then try to do something new with them.
Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct.
Unless you become more watchful in your states and check the spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that… the control over your dearest interests has passed into the hands of these corporations.
The main part of the Hyde bill is to withhold U.S. contributions to the regular assessed budget of the U.N. unless they make real and substantial reforms in the way they operate.
Always be yourself… unless you suck.
To me, celebrity doesn’t mean a whole lot unless you’re willing to use it. So I wanted to use it in a different way, with my AIDS work, the human rights stuff for the gay and lesbian community and the speaking I do.
The way NXT has been from day one when I was asked to do it, ‘Don’t put me on camera. I do not need to be on camera unless it’s absolutely necessary. This isn’t about me, it’s about the talent,’ and everyone that works in NXT, that’s what we think.
No change in musical style will survive unless it is accompanied by a change in clothing style. Rock is to dress up to.
It’s not about what the speaker wants. It’s not about necessarily what I want. There’s two other principles involved here. It’s what the constituents in my district want, and they didn’t want to raise the debt ceiling unless there were significant structural reforms and spending cuts to help us balance our budget.
I don’t wanna be preached to. Unless it’s in a beautiful voice, I don’t want that.
I never smile unless I mean it.
I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
An aged man is but a paltry thing, a tattered coat upon a stick, unless soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing for every tatter in its mortal dress.
William Butler Yeats
Irish people give big hellos and very little goodbyes. Unless they’re female, and then they spend five hours talking in the doorway to the person that’s leaving their house.
After all, a job isn’t worth doing unless you enjoy it.
No man will work for your interests unless they are his.
The golden child may be the oldest one, unless it’s the youngest. It may be the toughest one, unless it’s the most sensitive. It’s not even necessary that Mom and Dad have the same favorite – and typically they don’t.
Do not take up music unless you would rather die than not do so.
Don’t change on me. Don’t extort me unless you intend to do it forever.
You can’t strengthen the ranks of your middle class, you can’t strengthen and grow the ranks of your businesses and family-owned businesses, unless you are fiscally responsible.
Their argument is that most shows are losers, which is true, but it’s also disingenuous to say, ‘We are not going to take the risk unless it is totally covered by the few successful shows that are out there.’
If you believe in prayer at all, expect God to hear you. If you do not expect, you will not have. God will not hear you unless you believe He will hear you; but if you believe He will, He will be as good as your faith.
Men do not value a good deed unless it brings a reward.
I’m not so mean. I wouldn’t ever go out to hurt anybody deliberately – unless it was, you know, important, like a league game or something.
People are not used to seeing an older woman on screen, unless she’s playing a character role. Why can’t they make a movie about a woman who’s forty-five who’s falling in love or getting divorced? Why does the leading role always have to be a woman who’s twenty-three or twenty-eight?
Information’s pretty thin stuff unless mixed with experience.
The best of merchandise will go back to the shelf unless handled by a conscientious, tactful salesman.
James Cash Penney
I never sympathise with the accused unless there’s a chance the accused is not guilty, but I certainly don’t ever sympathise with the criminal.
The State thrives on war – unless, of course, it is defeated and crushed – expands on it, glories in it.
But when I don’t smoke I scarcely feel as if I’m living. I don’t feel as if I’m living unless I’m killing myself.
Unless you are a born connoisseur of art, you will not be able to judge by yourself why certain art is superior to other art.
All historical experience demonstrates the following: Our earth cannot be changed unless in the not too distant future an alteration in the consciousness of individuals is achieved.

How can we protect homeland security unless the government stops the invasion of illegal aliens?
I generally don’t like to talk too much about the character unless I feel stuck or in some trouble.
I don’t think you really have chemistry in the way that you want between two actors unless frustration is there as well.
Viewers can’t expect TV to keep developing unless they make their wants known. And let’s face it. The best way to make your wants known in this world is by ‘beefing’.
I don’t believe that there’s a good guy and a bad guy. Unless it’s like Superman or Batman, there is no good guy and bad guy.
I soon became convinced… that all the theorizing would be empty brain exercise and therefore a waste of time unless one first ascertained what the population of the universe really consists of.
Unless I’ve got Katy Perry on the cover of my CD, it’s going to be tough to sell a lot of records.
No right can come by conquest, unless there were a right of making that conquest.
Democracies, unlike dictatorships, are forgiving and generous, but they cannot survive unless they fight.
No leader, however strong, can succeed at anything of national importance or significance unless he has the support and cooperation of the people he is tasked to lead and sworn to serve.
Nobody spends any money on smallpox unless they worry about a bio-terrorist recreating it.
Don’t give advice unless you’re asked.
Argument is conclusive, but it does not remove doubt, so that the mind may rest in the sure knowledge of the truth, unless it finds it by the method of experiment.
When patients are admitted to hospital for elective surgery or non-urgent conditions, their vital signs are only monitored every four hours, unless they have been identified as being at high risk of deterioration.
Whether a party can have much success without a woman present I must ask others to decide, but one thing is certain, no party is any fun unless seasoned with folly.
People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.
Being famous is not something that would make me feel successful – unless one was striving for mediocrity.
You can’t look at the dollar and say, ‘I’m not what I dreamed of being unless I do this type of movie and it’s a blockbuster that gives me this amount of dollars.’ That’s not good.
I couldn’t go anywhere unless there was a security guard with me. That spoiled my life. It was like being in captivity. Those days are gone, and I don’t ever want to see that happen to me again. Now I can wander around the streets of Los Angeles on my own. I like it that way.
You’re not really ready to live unless you know what you’re willing to die for.
No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.
Self-exploration is very painful, but unless you do that, you will never know who you are and who you want to be.
It helps to be able to be alone. ‘Cuz writing is done alone, unless you collaborate, but I don’t do that. Ask my ex-wife.
I like light green, sometimes red is fun to look at, not a fan of yellow, unless it’s in a rainbow or on a coffee mug or on a happy face.
The frustrating part of it is that you’re generally known for what you did last. I’ve had the privilege of doing some very cool independent films that, a lot of the time, the general public doesn’t see unless you’re at a film festival or you’re into that kind of movie.
To be sure, no piece of social machinery, however well constructed, can be effective unless there is back of it a will and a determination to make it work.
I’m probably not going to get married unless I live with somebody for 10 or 20 years. But these people (Romeo and Juliet) took a chance and they did it. We don’t have the balls that Romeo did.
Most men, even egotistic actors, always shy away from dancing with me. Other dancers report the same trouble. They probably figure that I would be mentally comparing them with Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly. So I go to parties and usually just sit – unless George Burns is there – and then I have a ball.
The true idea of a church has not yet been shown the world, a visible Church, I mean, unless it was in the very earliest times; yes, the twelve disciples bound to their Lord in love, to do his work forever, that was a church, a Christian family.
I know how difficult it is to learn languages, since I am working in three regional industries in South India, and unless the director wants my voice to be dubbed, I do my own dubbing.
Nobody can be perfect unless he admits his faults, but if he has faults how can he be perfect?
Laurence J. Peter
Life can be boring unless you put some effort into it.
John C. Maxwell
India has a high level of corruption, a lethargic bureaucracy and is low on accountability. Investigations are long drawn and often aimless; those in power are rarely sacked for incompetence unless the media sets up a serious clamour for justice.
It is the end of the road for antibiotics unless we act urgently.
Superhuman effort isn’t worth a damn unless it achieves results.
We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.
R. Buckminster Fuller
When you wake up each morning, you can choose to be happy or choose to be sad. Unless some terrible catastrophe has occurred the night before, it is pretty much up to you. Tomorrow morning, when the sun shines through your window, choose to make it a happy day.
I love to do animation movies, and those might be some scores that are lesser known, unless you really kind of dig through my work and see.
The answer was that in Burundi, having a clean bill of health has taken on a very particular meaning: unless and until you have paid for your hospital treatment, you simply can’t leave, you are in effect a captive.
Running for President is physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually the most demanding single undertaking I can envisage unless it’s World War III.
Walter F. Mondale
The manager of a team is like a stagecoach, he can’t move unless he has the horses.
I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.
Building codes are a good thing. People who throw rocks at inspectors are being naive. It’s a lot like police officers; we want them around unless they stop us for a ticket. It’s the same with inspectors.
Children can write poetry and then, unless they’re poets, they stop when reach puberty.
What I love about low-budget movies is my interests and the director’s interests and the actors’ interests are aligned. No one makes money unless the movie works, and that informs every creative decision.
It’s about pursuing it rather than waiting to see what comes along. That’s partly because I found myself getting typecast, as everyone does unless they pursue roles that are very different from what they’ve done before.
Sincerity is impossible, unless it pervade the whole being, and the pretence of it saps the very foundation of character.
James Russell Lowell
If you have children, you cannot feed them forever with flags for breakfast and cartridges for lunch. You need something more substantial. Unless you educate your children and spend less money on conflicts, unless you develop your science, technology and industry, you don’t have a future.
It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching.
Francis of Assisi
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.
Richard M. DeVos

The man who does not know other languages, unless he is a man of genius, necessarily has deficiencies in his ideas.
There’s no reason to hold yourself back and say you can’t do something in life unless you go for it and try to do it.
Pain is no evil, unless it conquers us.
The fact is, the media never gets off the interstate unless there’s a major explosion.
Unless a man enters upon the vocation intended for him by nature, and best suited to his peculiar genius, he cannot succeed. I am glad to believe that the majority of persons do find their right vocation.
P. T. Barnum
No organization should be allowed near disaster unless they are willing to cooperate with some level of established leadership.
Liberty is the only thing you can’t have unless you give it to others.
William Allen White

I hate the giving of the hand unless the whole man accompanies it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I am like the sick sheep that strays from the rest of the flock. Unless the Good Shepherd takes me on His shoulders and carries me back to His fold, my steps will falter, and in the very effort of rising, my feet will give way.
Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.
There is no need for me continuing unless I’m able to improve.
The Internet has done a wonderful thing for us. But democracy doesn’t work unless people are well informed, and I don’t know that we are. People just don’t have the time.
There would be no Star Trek unless there were transporter malfunctions.
I don’t like nostalgia unless it’s mine.
Unless cameras were rolling, I was pretty much not Danny Tanner.
Our Creator would never have made such lovely days, and have given us the deep hearts to enjoy them, above and beyond all thought, unless we were meant to be immortal.
Nobody can give a good performance unless the authors and composers have written a good part, a fact which is often overlooked.
I go to assume a task more difficult than that which devolved upon Washington. Unless the great God, who assisted him, shall be with me and aid me, I must fail; but if the same omniscient mind and almighty arm that directed and protected him shall guide and support me, I shall not fail – I shall succeed.
It’s easy to get a loan unless you need it.
Norman Ralph Augustine
I have issues about swimming in the Med unless I’ve got a mask on.
Acting careers don’t come out fully formed – not unless your name is Jaden Smith and your dad has done it all.
You don’t hear things that are bad about your company unless you ask. It is easy to hear good tidings, but you have to scratch to get the bad news.
Thomas J. Watson
No wife can endure a gambling husband; unless he is a steady winner.
You’ll never do a whole lot unless you’re brave enough to try.
There’s no point in starting a business unless you’re going to make a dramatic difference to other people’s lives. So if you’ve got an idea that’s gonna make a big difference to other people’s lives, then just get on and do it.
I’m not a social media person; I don’t know what’s going on unless somebody tells me.
In these days a man is nobody unless his biography is kept so far posted up that it may be ready for the national breakfast-table on the morning after his demise.
No man has a right to expect to succeed in life unless he understands his business, and nobody can understand his business thoroughly unless he learns it by personal application and experience.
P. T. Barnum
You have to accept that when you don’t get the part, it’s to do with all sorts of reasons completely beyond your control, unless you know it’s because you weren’t prepared.
If you have got a dream and you’ve got ambition, then go for it. You know, unless you try, you’ll never know.
Eddie the Eagle
We don’t move on in the stunt unless it looks like a hit. So when I see it on TV, I’m generally satisfied that people are going to buy it.
I can say unequivocally that the boycott does not work. It’s never complete enough to have impact unless it’s backed by force, and I don’t think anybody in America seriously proposes that.
We are never defeated unless we give up on God.
I’m not good at interviews, I’m not good at dancing, I’m not good at looking like I’m having fun. I never will be, I don’t think. Unless I go to a life coach.
I firmly believe that unless one has tasted the bitter pill of failure, one cannot aspire enough for success.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Everyone forgets comedians are actors. There’s no question about it. A Robin Williams cannot say the same line every night for 40 weeks and make it sound fresh unless he’s doing an acting job.
I’m very good at what I do, and I don’t turn my hand to something unless I’m very good at it, frankly.
The only advice I can give to aspiring writers is don’t do it unless you’re willing to give your whole life to it. Red wine and garlic also helps.
Now he must not go the wrong way round the circuit, and unless he can spin himself stationary through 360 degrees I fail to see how he can avoid doing so.
You don’t make a statement unless you make noise.
Our schools and colleges are turning out people who cannot feel fulfilled unless they are telling other people what to do.
No art is any good unless you can feel how it’s put together. By and large it’s the eye, the hand and if it’s any good, you feel the body. Most of the best stuff seems to be a complete gesture, the totality of the artist’s body; you can really lean on it.
When you know what the male species is looking for – ‘I’m not into a redhead,’ ‘I don’t want a fat chick,’ – I have to tell them that X won’t date you unless you’re this. I’m just the messenger.
No country is free unless it is democratic.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
All that we know is nothing, we are merely crammed wastepaper baskets, unless we are in touch with that which laughs at all our knowing.
D. H. Lawrence
Unless we make education a priority, an entire generation of Americans could miss out on the American dream.
Democrats can’t get elected unless things get worse – and things won’t get worse unless they get elected.
I have some fond memories – a couple of the nights on the town … a couple of songs I wrote when I was messed up that I’m sure wouldn’t have come out of me unless I was messed up. It’s kind of happy-sad about those days – I could do anything I wanted to. I did. And now I don’t want to do any of that.
I believe you must find the things in life that you love, and don’t let anybody or anything stop you. There may be lesser successes, but you’re never a failure unless you choose not to do something. I don’t fail unless I quit. You must believe to receive.
Freedom of expression and freedom of speech aren’t really important unless they’re heard. The freedom of hearing is as important as the freedom of speaking.
People are very reluctant to invest unless they know it’s going to be a sure thing, and let’s face it: film is never a sure thing.
I mean, it is an extraordinary thing that a large proportion of your country and my country, of the citizens, never see a wild creature from dawn ’til dusk, unless it’s a pigeon, which isn’t really wild, which might come and settle near them.
Unless they’re a fugitive or a felon, or adjudicated mentally ill, we’re not against them buying guns at all.
Only very slowly and late have men come to realize that unless freedom is universal it is only extended privilege.
John Edward Christopher Hill
There are a couple of things that I’m sure people don’t think are important, but I do. I don’t like hair changes unless there’s a reason for it. Clothing – I don’t like to see an outfit worn more than one time in an hour – you can wear it again a few weeks later.
Age is just a number. It’s totally irrelevant unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine.
Unless young blacks are brought into the mainstream of economic life, they will continue to be on the curbstone.
As you get older and wiser you realize that when people are given anything without having to earn it (unless they are physically or mentally utterly incapable of earning anything), they become ungrateful and lazy. They also become less happy.
Nobody should be allowed to fund political parties unless they pay at least 30% tax on all income above the median wage. If that rule applied, the Tory party would be bankrupted overnight.
The commander in the field is always right and the rear echelon is wrong, unless proved otherwise.
Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.
When I have reached a summit, I leave it with great reluctance, unless it is to reach for another, higher one.
Unless the theatre can ennoble you, make you a better person, you should flee from it.
I do believe in living out your own time, unless it’s absolutely impossible, which it is for some people.
You gotta have fun. Regardless of how you look at it, we’re playing a game. It’s a business, it’s our job, but I don’t think you can do well unless you’re having fun.
Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
You’re playing a game, whether it’s Little League or Game 7 of the Word Series. It’s impossible to do well unless you’re having a good time. People talk about pressure. Yeah, there’s pressure. But I just look at it as fun.
Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.
Henry David Thoreau
Unless action is taken soon – unless we can display the same vision of that earlier period – we will lose the treasure of California’s open space and environmental beauty.
In my view of the present aspect of affairs, there is no need of bloodshed and war. There is no necessity for it. I am not in favor of such a course, and I may say in advance, there will be no blood shed unless it be forced upon the government. The government will not use force unless force is used against it.
I never let anyone pluck, including myself, unless my mom approves. She guards my eyebrows. She’s like the eyebrow police!
These race cars are dangerous and you don’t put someone in one unless you are 100 per cent certain that they can do what they need to do and be safe in the car.
My attitude about Hollywood is that I wouldn’t walk across the street to pull one of those executives out of the snow if he was bleeding to death. Not unless I was paid for it. None of them ever did me any favors.
Obviously, race is the elephant in the room, and we all understand that. Unless it is talked about constantly, it’s not going to get better… people have to be made to feel uncomfortable, and especially white people, because we’re comfortable. We still have no clue what being born white means.
Stan Van Gundy
What is not conservative about saying, ‘Don’t go to war unless we go to war properly with a full declaration of war and no other way?’
O friend unseen, unborn, unknown, Student of our sweet English tongue, I never indulge in poetics – Unless I am down with rheumatics.
I don’t go to celebrity parties a lot. I don’t really enjoy them because I really like going for it in parties. And sometimes at celebrity parties, there is no dancing on tables because people… it can be a little judgmental at times. So I tend not to go unless it is Taylor Swift’s birthday party; then it’s amazing.
As far as pacing the shoot is concerned, I know when I’ve got it. I don’t think there’s any reason to take ten takes unless you need them.
No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
I am disillusioned enough to know that no man’s opinion on any subject is worth a damn unless backed up with enough genuine information to make him really know what he’s talking about.
H. P. Lovecraft
One thing I always tell players is that there are three bad things: Nothing good happens after midnight, nothing good happens when you’re around guns unless you’re going hunting, and you don’t want to mess around with women that you don’t know because a lot of times, bad things happen.
An object in motion tends to remain in motion along a straight line unless acted upon by an outside force.
Certainly all historical experience confirms the truth – that man would not have attained the possible unless time and again he had reached out for the impossible.
What indeed is life, unless so far as it is enjoyed? It does not merit the name.
Don’t undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.
I never force myself to be devout except when I feel so inspired, and never compose hymns of prayers unless I feel within me real and true devotion.
Every writer knows that unless you were born gifted with either supreme confidence or outsize ego, handing in your work holds, in some cases, admitted terror. If that’s too strong, at least fairly high anxiety.
Nothing is really real unless it happens on television.
Daniel J. Boorstin
You don’t get to be the best unless you dedicate yourself to what you are doing.
Unless you are aggressive, you will never become number one.
I shall not be satisfied unless I produce something which shall for a few days supersede the last fashionable novel on the tables of young ladies.
Thomas Babington Macaulay
I strongly believe that you can’t win in the marketplace unless you win first in the workplace. If you don’t have a winning culture inside, it’s hard to compete in the very tough world outside.
Most child actors go through that. Unless you can transition into an adult star, your career is over.
All the major problems of the world today are global in essence, and they cannot be solved unless through some kind of global cooperation. It’s not just climate change, which is, like, the most obvious example people give. I think more in terms of technological disruption.
Yuval Noah Harari
You can’t even begin to understand biology, you can’t understand life, unless you understand what it’s all there for, how it arose – and that means evolution.
A fact is a simple statement that everyone believes. It is innocent, unless found guilty. A hypothesis is a novel suggestion that no one wants to believe. It is guilty, until found effective.

I tend to have a lot of jokes about ex-girlfriends. They always ask me if they will be the subject of a joke, and I always tell them they won’t. Unless they do something crazy. They all tend to, so you know where that goes. There are no closed doors. The ‘art’ will suffer.
I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it.

A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be lobster salad and Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming viands.

Young people in my generation were sort of in lockstep, and it wasn’t just the ’40s, either. In the ’30s and in the ’50s it was the same. No one ever dropped out unless he got sick or got kicked out.

Unless a product becomes outmoded, a great campaign will not wear itself out.

John Harvey Kellogg

What the American people want to do is fight a war without getting hurt. You can’t do that any more than you can get into a barroom fight without getting hurt… Unless the American people are willing to send their sons out to fight an aggressor, there just isn’t going to be any United States.

You never get tired unless you stop and take time for it.

Unless you know a lot more about something than I do, I am not really that interested. I have too much information already.
