Jennifer Love Hewitt

There was always that thing with ‘Johnny’ – I always saw myself as his writer and PR. But when he got out there, I had no control. His whole thing was going off on those flights of fancy. Going, ‘Let’s see what we can possibly do that hasn’t been done before up here.’ And when it works, it’s lovely; it’s a great night.
Markets are unforgiving, and sometimes they move for reasons we can’t possibly foresee.
The Unhappy may, possibly, by indulging Thought, hit on some lucky Stratagem for the Relief of his Misfortunes, and the Happy may be infinitely more so by contemplating on his Condition.

How, possibly, could the police have made the ‘mistake’ of charging the wrong man with the notorious Red Light Bandit crimes? That also is something that is fully revealed in the Pandora’s Box of facts I have prepared.
I spend all day replying to tweets and reblogging posts and sharing fan art. I think it’s the most important thing I can possibly do, to stay involved in the community as a part of the community, not ahead of the community. I’m very much the same level of them in it.
Make the film that you love. When you find a film that you love, every molecule of your being will be moving in the direction of making the best film you can possibly make. This should be your default mode of operation.
I can’t divorce myself from my childhood. I try to write as much fiction as I possibly can, but there are so many things that are touchstones of my childhood like being on the swim team and playing soccer and the particularities of sports season and environments that make their way into my books.
No, but Liza took went and took away from me, possibly my livelihood.

I DJ all the time, as much as I possibly can. I’ll never stop. That’s my security blanket, that’s what I’m good at. I still consider myself a better DJ than a singer. I can DJ in my sleep.
For me the greatest revenge of all is having a happy adulthood, waking up in my gorgeous turquoise bedroom in the morning beside a person who really inspires me. That’s the best revenge a girl-loving girl from the Bible belt could possibly have. And, importantly, it’s healthy.
Some people think that movements, such as the movements in ballet, are a higher cultural expression, whereas some are just dirt. I think it is elitist to think that a trained movement is more acceptable than untrained and possibly unrehearsed movements.

To me, it’s a little odd to ever think ‘model into actor.’ I modeled once. I was about as far from a decent model as you can possibly be. I did not enjoy the world at all. I fell in my stilettos quite a bit.
I don’t think that writing talent has much to do with where one went to school, or the number of degrees on one’s business card, but I do get a bit bristly at the implication that romance authors couldn’t possibly be smart enough to get into an Ivy League school.
I was working probably at the age of 10, when I had my first paper route. I had every different kind of job you could possibly imagine as a young kid.
One of my first days shooting on ‘Game of Thrones’ was possibly the coldest day I’ve ever experienced in my life, and that sticks out especially because I’d never, ever done anything before.
Isaac Hempstead Wright
The story of Willie Stark fascinated me because it was tackling the story of a man who outwardly has all the success one could possibly want and who is destroyed by his personal demons.
If anyone has seen the horrific and unwatchable footage of the Chinese cat and dog trade – animals skinned alive – then they could not possibly argue in favour of China as a caring nation. There are no animal protection laws in China and this results in the worst animal abuse and cruelty on the planet. It is indefensible.
Aviation constituted a new and possibly decisive element in preventing or fighting a war, and I was in a unique position to observe European aviation – especially in its military aspects.

In my late teens and early twenties, I thought having children was possibly the most irresponsible thing you could do because I thought that the world was a dreadful place; I thought the sooner we all got off the planet, the better.
Thus the races, though alike in their physical response to climate, may possibly be different in their mental response because they have approached America by different paths.
Whether it’s this year or next year, I don’t want to leave basketball limping out of basketball. At the end of the day, we’re all men and we all look at ourselves every morning and you have to ask yourself, Did I leave the way I wanted? Did I do everything I possibly could do to leave the way I want?’
You’ve got to stay current and up with the competition. The main thing, though, is finding the greatest songs you can possibly find.
No one knows when a robot will approach human intelligence, but I suspect it will be late in the 21st century. Will they be dangerous? Possibly. So I suggest we put a chip in their brain to shut them off if they have murderous thoughts.
We’re putting a lot of pressure on ourselves for this second album and so we want to make it as great as we possibly can.
It is no coincidence that so many religious beliefs date back to times when no science could possibly have accounted satisfactorily for many of the natural phenomena inspiring scripture and myths.

It’s foolish to call Chanakya an Indian Machiavelli. Rather, Machiavelli was possibly an Italian Chanakya.
England is nothing but the last ward of the European madhouse, and quite possibly it will prove to be the ward for particularly violent cases.
I wanted to get out in the world, have a great job, make my mark, and see how far I could go. And I wanted to make good on the philosophy my mother drilled into us with all the subtlety of a Lady Gaga performance. I got it loud and clear. I would need to succeed, and then I could possibly be happy.
‘m so fortunate to have done what I love to do for so long, but the day I retired was one of the best days of my life. Not because I was happy to get away from the sport, but because it was clear in my mind that I had done all I possibly could, and that it was time to go.
We all had our reservations about possibly overdoing it but, you know, the script was great. Basically it stuck to the formula that worked for the first two movies, and for that reason I think this works as well.
The seeded draw came into being. This means that the two best players of the tournament are placed in opposite halves in the draw, and cannot possibly meet until the finals, if they come through successfully against all the rest of the participants.
Helen Wills Moody

I went to Salem as many Halloweens as I possibly could.
What matters is this: Being fearless of failure arms you to break the rules. In doing so, you may change the culture and just possibly, for a moment, change life itself.
Part of my plan was not only to introduce all useful animals that I possibly could into this part of Australia, but also the most valuable plants of every description.

On Anzac Day, coffee and jokes with a Turk might be the most meaningful and fair dinkum dawn service you could possibly have.
The only thing I can control is working as hard as I possibly can to do a good job and make people right on the opportunities that they’ve given me.
When I was leaving NBC News to go to CNN, people would say, ‘What?! Why would you possibly leave the ‘Today Show’ to go to cable?’ If I would’ve listened to people, I would’ve been on a great platform, but I wouldn’t have grown as a journalist. So far, most of the steps in my career have been really good.
Just sharing things that are either embarrassing or possibly relatable, searching for that laugh so that someone makes me feel less alone. Like, ‘Oh, they laughed, so they get what I’m saying.
I can’t rank anything. I mean, how could anyone possibly say what their favourite piece of music is? I don’t have the ability or the desire to categorise things of that nature.
I’m not an advocate for disability issues. Human issues are what interest me. You can’t possibly speak for a diverse group of people. I don’t know what it’s like to be an arm amputee, or have even one flesh-and-bone leg, or to have cerebral palsy.
There are so many wonderful, wonderful musicians in the world, I cannot possibly make a distinction between the fact that they might play classical music, or bluegrass, or Irish traditional, or Indian music.
I get bored. We seem to have been having a little bit more time off this winter than last winter. I’m always itching to get back in the car. It’s going to get harder, so I’ve got to make sure that I’m doing everything I possibly can do to make sure I can start next season how I ended this season.
I couldn’t wait to leave school. So I did it as soon as I possibly could at 16. I had no clue what I wanted to do next other than being at school wasn’t it and that I was desperate to make my own way as soon as I could.
Despite tantalizing suggestions of fossilized microbes in meteorites, puzzling and possibly biogenic methane gas in the martian atmosphere, and a long-standing controversy over the Viking lander experiments of nearly 40 years ago, there’s still no Exhibit A that points unequivocally to biology in our own back yard.
When onstage, I always try to take my audience through as many emotions as I possibly can. I want them to go from laughter to tears, be shocked and surprised and walk out the door with a renewed sense of themselves – and maybe a smile.

At some stage in the process, most mainstream pop records are being manipulated and possibly completely rebuilt on a computer, with a visual program.
We operate under a jury system in this country, and as much as we complain about it, we have to admit that we know of no better system, except possibly flipping a coin.
I think the most successful are the most paranoid. The first thing people do when they buy a mansion is they build the biggest wall you could possibly build around it. What happens is, now you become a target. If I go into the hood, I’m at a disadvantage. They could carry guns. I can’t. They can hit me in the face. I can’t.
You don’t want to line up on the blocks and know you have not done everything you possibly can.
We all have a hungry heart, and one of the things we hunger for is happiness. So as much as I possibly could, I stayed where I was happy.

My own life was filled with so much love and joy that when depression struck, it was like a prison door slamming shut and I was being placed in an isolation cell. No one else could possibly be feeling what I was. I hated my depression and all of its symptoms.
Susan Polis Schutz
Playing a character is an illusion, and I feel that when you know too much about a person, possibly part of that illusion is disrupted.
I went through a mod and goth-phase when I decided that I wouldn’t ever be the bronzed beach-bunny. I started going as pale as I possibly could.
He made it quite clear that if I didn’t play the role, I would be dead within a week. As you can imagine, the guy who turned down Hagrid would be like the guy who called the Beatles a guitar band. So I couldn’t possibly refuse, really.
I’d like to be a jazz singer, but I couldn’t possibly do it; nobody would want me, anyway.

And it is a very beautiful idea, and possibly true, that a common man from Stratford with a common education was able to write these plays.

Fake is, like, the worst word you could possibly use to describe anything, you know?
I think possibly, as an artist, you’re always treated with a certain respect but also with a certain sort of nervousness.
The only process that comes close to the process of writing a whole book, in my experience, is childbirth. There is this moment when you think you can’t possibly labour for another moment, and that, paradoxically, is when you have to push hardest.
I put the cameras on her and told her to be obnoxious as she could possibly could be. She was.
Keenen Ivory Wayans
I wanted people to talk about the finale of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ as one of their favorites, which is a lofty ambition, but it certainly drove me hard creatively to make sure that we had put as much thought and love into it as we possibly could.
I’ve always been the, ‘Sure, I’ll try that’ guy. I’m very adventurous and don’t have fears. I think I got that from my mother’s side because she was an Olympic skier. Jump off a mountain with a parachute? Sure. What could possibly go wrong?
Donald Trump, Jr.
Possibly I’ve become less funny as I’ve been happier.
People seem to take as much offence as they possibly can these days – it’s almost a new type of greed, a new kind of road rage.
Everyone who ever trusted Washington has been betrayed. Possibly there is an exception somewhere, but the betrayals are vast and are sufficient in number to define Washington as the least trusted entity on the earth.
Paul Craig Roberts
The whole idea is to look at the television camera and present as much love as you possibly could to a person who might feel that he or she needs it.
I was a bartender at a Pizzeria Uno’s for nine years. The people I worked with were amazing, but it was quite possibly the most miserable time of my life.
Lots of people feel more alive when they’re riding a roller-coaster relationship. But while this might be fun for a while, it can’t possibly last.

My mentality is to get in and around the box as much as I possibly can and be more impactful in those areas where I think I can make a difference.
‘Big Little Lies’ is the story of a school trivia night that goes horrifically wrong, when one parent ends up dead, possibly murdered. I have never attended a school trivia night where a parent ended up dead. In fact, I’ve never been to a school trivia night at all.
I feel that I learned far more from my students than I could possibly have taught them.
I’m more akin to things like Sigur Ros, Mogwai, possibly. But when I’m making solo electronic music, techno stuff is just the most exciting form of rhythm.
You cannot possibly invent painting all by yourself.
I’ve been an employee all my life. Would I wish, if I could rewind it, to have gone down a different route? Possibly, but I’ve had a great time. Anyway I’m not ruling it out; I could still buy a business.
You spend ten years of your life being trained to do one thing, and you’re being taught to think that it’s the most serious thing that anyone could possibly do, and then suddenly you find yourself doing something that in some respects is the epitome of frivolity.

We could have a political movement going if it had been properly organized but the Monarchy’s done itself enormous damage possibly beyond the point of long-term recovery.
The flag is a symbol of our freedom, and burning it absolutely is one of the least patriotic things that a person could possibly do. I say ‘one of the least’ because I can think of a few things that would actually be less so – and, as a matter of fact, I think that banning flag-burning would absolutely be on that list.
To answer that I have to describe what I think is my responsibility as a thriller writer: To give my readers the most exciting roller coaster ride of a suspense story I can possibly think of.
I feel there is a great sense of achievement coming from a non-filmy background. But when you are going through a low phase, you don’t have anybody to advice you because your parents possibly can’t advice you on that.
I am just getting into Zora Neale Hurston, who is possibly a much better writer than the critics and rivals who tried to erase her from history, resulting in a life in which she worked as a maid and died in a welfare nursing home. She’s clever. She does something modern to the sentence.
I spent a lot of time thinking that I was some kind of foundling, that I had been a changeling, that I had been found under a bush somewhere, and that I couldn’t possibly be kin – but the more I live, the more I feel absolutely like I come out of my family. I’m a sort of strange natural progression.
You can always amend a big plan, but you can never expand a little one. I don’t believe in little plans. I believe in plans big enough to meet a situation which we can’t possibly foresee now.
Harry S Truman
I couldn’t possibly write ‘Next to Normal,’ but God, I can weep and watch ‘Next to Normal’ five times.
Possibly because I did start off as a journalist, my starting point has always been that you’ve got to keep an audience with you. Whatever you’re doing, you always want a script to be a page-turner. It’s very important never, ever, to feel above that.
I thought I could go and make a bigger name for myself on the independents and possibly in Japan, places like that.
If we go to the 1940s, Nazi Germany – look, we saw it in Britain. Neville Chamberlain told the British people: Accept the Nazis. Yes, they will dominate the continent of Europe, but that is not our problem. Let’s appease them. Why? Because it can’t be done. We cannot possibly stand against them.
I’d like to meet a lovely man who shares my interests. On the other hand, I possibly will not. It’s part of the hand you’re dealt. It’s a challenge-and I’m not atypical.
I try to be as calm and as reassuring and a rock to my daughter as I possibly can be. I try to teach her everything that I never knew when I was her age, and I try to give her all the advantages and the things that I didn’t have when I was her age.
I want to be the best daughter, sister, friend and wife I can possibly be – because when I die, I am not going to be buried with my Oscar.
When you say that you are a race man, it means that you embrace the entire black community regardless of the hue, whether somebody is very light and could pass for possibly white or someone is very dark.
I am a firm believer that one way to become enlightened is to be so relaxed, as relaxed as you possibly can be.
My tips for any budding actors would be to go out and see as much as you possibly can. Find the people you want to work with and be ready to hopefully make them want to work with you.
I have the best husband a wife could possibly have. He’s the best father my children could have.
The rare person is still interested in new advances when they are adults. There is possibly a correlation with intelligence. In any case, you have to be fairly bright to keep learning and changing attitudes as you get older.
The secret of life is to have a task, something you devote your entire life to, something you bring everything to, every minute of the day for the rest of your life. And the most important thing is, it must be something you cannot possibly do.
Perhaps we can get to the point where we can outsource our own personal experiences entirely into a computer – and possibly our own personality.
Story was that human civilization started to develop with first social network. Emerged where population concentration was high. Helped propel to where we are now. Facebook is next step of creating a huge human brain to embrace hundreds of million, possibly billions of people.
For a brief moment, Ian Fleming made being an Englishman seem sexy, even to the French. He should have been awarded a knighthood, even possibly the Garter.
My total year’s income from working as hard as I possibly could from writing went from like $30 one year to about $70 the next year. And it made me realize that maybe you couldn’t really pay the rent that way.
Kevin J. Anderson
I said to Scott that the ascent seemed to be going slowly and that I was concerned descending climbers could possibly run out of oxygen before their return to camp IV.
Since my mother passed away, my father and I forged a bond that is so tighter than one could possibly imagine. Keep in mind, I am an only child, so I was always fiercely close with both my parents. The tragedy my father and I endured when my mother passed created a bond between us that no amount of force can break.
You want to learn everything that you possibly can, chew it, digest it, and take it for what it is, and then move on.
I mean, I’m just speaking of my own experiences and my own desires, and it’s a kind of a childlike wonder that could really possibly speculate on other dimensions.

Possibly because I’ve lived so much of my life in difficult circumstances, I think I have a more profound understanding of life.
What I do is between me and the Lord, to examine and possibly alter the state of grace in which I live, and thereby the state of grace of anybody who listens.
Townes Van Zandt
Just to be working again as an actress and possibly doing TV would just be great. It’s not about how big the role is.
I know that Oswald killed Kennedy. Now, was he pushed? Encouraged to do it by outsiders? Possibly. Possibly. Was he sitting down with Fidel Castro? No.

How could a New Yorker possibly take something called the Hollywood String Quartet seriously?
People used to laugh that academics would study Disney movies. There’s nothing more important for academics to study, because they shape the minds of our children possibly more than any single thing.
One should always try to do the best you possibly can. I’m not in a race to the finish line – I won’t put anything out until it’s completely ready. You want to keep it special and unique for the customer.
The purpose of life is to love and be loved… what could possibly be more energizing than that?
We need stem-cell research, no question about it. It is absolutely crucial for moving our medical science forward. We are trying to harness an untapped source of energy that can provide cures and possibly even prevent disease and suffering.
Possibly, I should have been a jazz singer from the beginning.
Everything that I do in my life is geared towards my kids and their survival and giving them the best education that I can possibly give them and the best home that I can possibly give them.
I think pop culture underestimates people. The message is, ‘Being yourself is the worst thing you could possibly be.’ But people are still attracted to it.
If you tell your husband or boyfriend for his whole life that he needn’t worry about his clothes, that he couldn’t possibly understand them, that they are a woman’s affair, then you can hardly complain that he doesn’t have any style sense. You all make this bed.
Being yourself is one of the greatest things you can possibly do. Being true to yourself.
We want to look at everything we can do that’s right and proper under federal law, and with federal laws to see that the children of America are given a chance to grow as strong, constructive, healthy human beings. It’s the best investment we can possibly make in America.
I would like to use the law of this land to do everything I possibly can to protect America’s children from abuse and violence and to give to each of them the opportunity to grow to be strong, healthy and self-sufficient citizens of this country.
Icon. What is an icon? When someone is iconic it means they have established a certain kind of legacy possibly, and I think it does come with time. It’s something in the arts, I feel. Maybe not, maybe it doesn’t have to be in the arts exactly. I’m not really sure. But I don’t think you are born an icon.
In this coming year, I will seek knowledge from those wiser than me and try to teach those who wish to learn from me. I love being alive, and I will be the best man I possibly can.
I’ve really tried to strip my writing of as many adjectives and adverbs as I possibly can.
Record companies don’t think creatively about what something could possibly be because they are not filled with creative people. Nobody’s looking at the future of music because they’re concentrating so hard on what they can get from it right this second. It’s really hard to see an artist; it’s a lot easier to see money.
Oh, there’s so much ego with men; in their head, they can’t possibly think about Tesco’s when they are doing Othello. Er, why not? They want to think that they are such geniuses they can’t muddy their day with domesticity, and I’ve got no truck with it whatsoever.
I want to wake up every day and feel that I’m training harder than my competitors, that I’m dieting harder, that I’m recovering better. That’s what gives me confidence when I’m lining up on the blocks. I’ve never gone out to prove people wrong. I just want to be the best that I can possibly be.
I want to do everything I can possibly do to step outside the box.
I’m a carb queen. I’ll always order macaroni and cheese, but I don’t want it to be fancy. I want it to be as close to Kraft Services as it can possibly get!
Fairness forces you – even when you’re writing a piece highly critical of, say, genetically modified food, as I have done – to make sure you represent the other side as extensively and as accurately as you possibly can.
Most people didn’t have the bandwidth to download whole albums. And so it brought back this cherry picking idea that the audience would focus on certain songs and possibly be the impetus behind what eventually got on AM radio: the single or whatever.
I seem to be failing in my intention to be as boring as I possibly can be for self-protection.
My perfect day is constantly changing. Right now, it would be to lie around in a hammock reading with a portable phone and a table of food next to it. I would spend all day there. And that’s all that I can possibly come up with on the spur of the moment.
Basically, I think of fiction and non-fiction as different ways of engaging with the world. You reach a point where you feel you have said all you possibly can, in reportage or a review essay or a reflection on history, which ‘From the Ruins of Empire’ was.
I never want to possibly take another life in my hands.
If you wanted to design a robot that could learn as well as it possibly could, you might end up with something that looked a lot like a 3-year-old.
We’ve only explored about five percent of our ocean. There are great discoveries yet to be made down there, fantastic creatures representing millions of years of evolution and possibly bioactive compounds that could benefit us in ways that we can’t even yet imagine.
To my mind, the best investment a young man starting out in business can possibly make is to give all his time, all his energies, to work – just plain, hard work.
Charles M. Schwab
I never try to be the poster child for the perfect mother/wife… You prioritize, you do the best you can possibly do, and you don’t beat yourself up.
I felt that politics was one place where I could possibly have a career in arguing, debating, and getting to write papers. I almost considered working in law enforcement or something like that, but that didn’t really last long.
Anything that I do, I try to make it as good as I possibly can.
We are telling our kids that nature is in the past and it probably doesn’t count anymore, the future is in electronics, the boogeyman is in the woods, and playing outdoors is probably illicit and possibly illegal.
Goals are what count for me. It’s not about a battle with defenders. Fighting hard, giving everything and working hard on the field you have to combine with the goals you score. It doesn’t matter if defenders want to battle with me or not; I will just be trying to do my job as well as I possibly can.
I’m a huge fan of online communities. I think that asynchronous internet-based communication forums such as Reddit and other discussion forums are one of the best things that could possibly have happened to collaborative invention. The Rift certainly would not exist without forums.
I am telling you, Lebanon was fun. I played for 5,000 people in a sold-out venue. The clubs there don’t even open until 4 A.M. If a bomb goes off, people don’t get excited. They live every day like it’s their last because it could possibly be.
From the very beginning, I think it’s been quite clear that there’s no way I could possibly say that trans women are not women. It’s the sort of thing to me that’s obvious, so I start from that obvious premise.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
‘The Lego Movie’ did better than we could possibly have imagined. We were very nervous that people would discount it because it is called ‘The Lego Movie.’
To be a great artist, you need to know yourself as best as you possibly can. I live my life and delve into my own psyche. It’s more about exploring how I feel rather than making pale imitations of something that came before. We are unique beings, and the way we look at things is our own.
Bat for Lashes
Every time I could possibly be doing stand up, I am.
T. J. Miller
If I’d been living in Berlin in 1933-34, could I possibly have foreseen the Holocaust and all the corollary horrors of World War II? And if I had, would I have done anything about it? I also started to wonder: how does a culture slip its moorings?
If I start trying to make a record for what I think could possibly get played on radio, I’m dead.
I wanted to be a surgeon, possibly influenced by the qualities of our family doctor who cared for our childhood ailments.
I’ve been to the Hall of Fame many times, in grade school and high school. I had field trips to the Hall of Fame and taking tours of it. I just never thought about that one day I possibly might be in it. I think it’d be great.
Where the stakes are the highest, in the war on terror, we cannot possibly succeed without extraordinary international cooperation. Effective international police actions require the highest degree of intelligence sharing, planning and collaborative enforcement.
I want to make as much money as I possibly can so that when my day comes, my mother and sister is fine. My close friends are fine. They don’t have to worry about anything ever again.
Tyler, The Creator
I feel a responsibility to the fans who have paid to see me and I want to give as good a show as I possibly can.
Grief has limits, whereas apprehension has none. For we grieve only for what we know has happened, but we fear all that possibly may happen.
Pliny the Elder
I’m such a bikini girl. Generally, I like to be as half-naked as I possibly can.
The most evil and insidious thing about mental illness is that it isolates us and makes us feel so different that we think no one can possibly relate.
Even if Koch Industries had a financial interest in the Keystone XL pipeline, what possibly could be wrong with that? Perhaps more important, under what circumstances would such an interest be worthy of a congressional inquisition?
When practicing, it’s great to break a part down into its different elements, start slowly, and then try to build up the speed until you’re playing as fast as you possibly can.
I think I’ve far exceeded what I ever thought I could possibly do.
I’m not religious. I’m not an atheist. Would I say I’m an agnostic? Possibly. But I would say the collective unconscious is something I’m much more interested in.
I can’t tell you if one day I’ll be standing up there with an Oscar or directing, but I am going to be the best human being I possibly can.
I drink tons of water. Just as much water as I can possibly drink.
I believe climate change is real – and I believe we have to act to protect the climate as fast as we possibly can.
I have tried to be as eclectic as I possibly can with my professional life, and so far it’s been pretty fun.
I did every odd job you could possibly imagine: Holding a sign in the rain for 14 hours straight, sweeping up cigarette butts, pouring coffee, running around – anything I could to be on a film set. I wanted to be in the business. So I’d say, ‘You need that job done? Fine,’ and I became indispensable to people.
Possibly the fact that I was physically quite feeble, a relatively short little fellow, attracted me to that idea of a very authoritative and aggressive version of Conservative politics.
I didn’t come out and roll from job to job – my first year was really tough. I had to work as a teaching assistant for an agency; I ran a pancake stall in Dulwich Market. I taught drama classes and ran my own workshops. I applied for every advert on Gumtree there possibly was.
When I first became recognizable from appearing on television, I abused my notoriety as much as I possibly could, at the expense of both my health and personal relationships.
I always tell my students, ‘If you walk around with your eyes and ears open, you can’t possibly live long enough to write all the novels you’ll encounter.’
‘Pastoralia’ by George Saunders. Possibly my favorite book. It’s one of the weirdest books I’ve ever read. If Monty Python and Thomas Pynchon had a love child, and it was raised by Frank Zappa on a weird commune, that would be this book.
My mother made a choice. And when I was younger, I judged her for making that choice. Then I got older and got to be an adult, and I realized that was the ultimate sacrifice that any parent and any mother could possibly make.
Jose Antonio Vargas
The world is full of opportunities, and I want to try as many as I possibly can.
I think fractures in your childhood make you observe the world more as an outsider. Possibly it pushes you outside.
What can possibly be the common factor in a Kim Jee-woon film? I think what really ties a lot of my projects together is that there is always a character that believes his life is not exactly the way he wishes it to be. My regard for that character turns out to be a very sympathetic one.
I think when wedding dresses are talked about, every woman has a different set of factors in her mind of what it could be because they’ve been thinking about it possibly for such a long time.
If you love your work, you’ll be out there every day trying to do it the best you possibly can, and pretty soon everybody around will catch the passion from you – like a fever.
I would like to fight as hard as I possibly can in each and every game and win or lose, leave it at that, and move forward. I know in my heart that that is the mindset I need to be a successful and happy athlete.
The other thing I felt was that the philosophical concept behind the experiences also looked like it had been designed by technicians and not by entertainers. I felt I needed to grab hold of it and try and push the envelope as much as I possibly could right now.
There’s a stigma to skating. People think of it as a kid’s sport. People kept telling me I couldn’t possibly make a living out of it. Then they said I couldn’t keep it up in my 30s. And here I am in my 40s, and I’m still improving my skills.
Film and TV are the most popular mediums in America. Literature and poetry are possibly the most under-recognized art forms.
No translation can possibly be perfect. Every production and every performance is a different path up the mountain, and nobody ever makes it all the way to the summit.
My thing is, and I’ve always been this way – to get to know as many people as I possibly can on a personal level, so that way, when you get on the football field, you’ve got your buddy right beside you, and you’re ready to go.
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve dreamt about winning the Brazilian league, and I still dream about it now. I am doing everything I possibly can to make my dream come true.
Not even the creators of ‘Rock Band’ could possibly believe that playing the game is tantamount to making your own music. There is, however, a sad similarity between ‘Rock Band’ and some actual bands, and that is the attempt at realness.
There’s really no difference between what I do and what a male filmmaker might do. I mean we all try to make our days, we all try to give the best performances we can, we try to make our budget, we try to make the best movie we possibly can.
I’m not going to give up doing interesting things. I’m going to do it as long as I possibly can and hopefully have longevity in this business.
If I believe that I became the best quarterback that I could possibly be, the best football player that I could possibly be… That’s how I’m going to measure my career as a success or not.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair.
I think very long and hard about every possibly offensive joke I want to make. I really hate mean humor and would hate to make anyone reading my jokes feel truly bad.
At 20, I realized that I could not possibly adjust to a feminine role as conceived by my father and asked him permission to engage in a professional career. In eight months I filled my gaps in Latin, Greek and mathematics, graduated from high school, and entered medical school in Turin.
I’m no longer going to play thugs or debauched cops that I can’t possibly make complex characters. I’m bigger than that. I owe too much to too many good people at the Goodman, Arena and Playwrights Horizons.
I would love for ‘The Goldbergs’ to continue for as long as we can possibly let it happen, because it’s my favorite thing I’ve ever done, and I can’t imagine my life without it.
Pro wrestling was there, and I was good at it, thank God. I started getting a lot of offers, but unfortunately, at WWE I was under a tight leash. I think it had a lot to do with The Rock making the transition, and me possibly being the next guy – you know, the company didn’t want to lose another top performer.
My grandmother was a psychiatrist and possibly the ultimate of all skeptics. But even she couldn’t explain the strange noises we so often heard in the attic.
Of our relation to all creation we can never know anything whatsoever. All is immensity and chaos. But, since all this knowledge of our limitations cannot possibly be of any value to us, it is better to ignore it in our daily conduct of life.
H. P. Lovecraft
There were some jobs I wanted that weren’t necessarily right for me at the time. The ones I thought I’d never get, I got. As long as I am doing the best work I can possibly do at any given time, I can’t do any better than that.
Some asteroids have us in their sights. Be nice to sort of go near them and find out what they’re made of, possibly tag their ears so they’re always broadcasting to us their location. In case one of their trajectories head straight for us, we’ll know well in advance to do something about it.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
We are committed to making construction zones as safe as we possibly can for motorists and those working on the job.
Possibly he knew, as he wrote this, that he was mad – because inside every madman sits a little sane man saying ‘You’re mad, you’re mad.’
I think you have to love the characters that you write. I don’t know how you could possibly write a TV show where you didn’t love the characters.
I’ve experienced great things, I’ve experienced great tragedies. I’ve done almost everything I could possibly ever imagine doing, but I just know that there’s more.
Learning how to compete is one of the most important things that an athlete can do. You can train as well as you possibly can and go compete and completely choke.
We have such an energetic live show. We have so much fun onstage. We swap instruments. We might possibly be the sweatiest band in the business.
We hope we can slow or possibly reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
To me, ‘Educating Rita’ is the most perfect performance I could give of a character who was as far away from me as you could possibly get and of all the films I have ever been in, I think it may be the one I am most proud of.
I don’t know that there’s more bullying or whether it’s just more talked about. It seems to me that possibly that there’s been a lot of bullying all the time, but at the moment, it’s something that people are talking about.
In certain strains of Judaism, there’s a profound passion for the ineffable. Contemplation of God is meant to be forever elusive, because, you know, our tiny minds can’t possibly comprehend Him. If we find ourselves comprehending Him, then we can be sure we’re off track.
First of all, I’m Middle Eastern; I’m Iranian, so to be playing a leading role in a big Hollywood movie, I think, is possibly one of the first times.
My family didn’t have money to travel, so reading was how I knew about the world. It made me hungry to have more experiences than just what I could possibly experience in Arkansas.
As a running back, it takes five offensive linemen, a tight end, a fullback and possibly two wide receivers, in order to make my job successful.
I pretty much built a band out of the most incredible guys I could possibly find. I didn’t really want a six-piece band, but it just ended up being a six-piece band because these guys are all awesome.
I’m forever being told that I’m an odd-looking actress, so it’s great playing parts where there’s no vanity. You just look as rough as you possibly can!
Anna Maxwell Martin
I’m a victim of Developaralysis: the crippling sense that the software industry is evolving so fast that no one person can possibly keep up.
I have a romantic conception of the writer’s life, and the sort of writer’s life that I admire is probably a childless life, possibly a marriageless life, certainly a travelling life – I’m in awe of how much D.H. Lawrence managed to get around. But that’s never been something I’m capable of doing.
You cannot possibly be reaching the needs of your consumers when the makeup of your company is not reflective of the community you serve.
I have everything that I would possibly imagine. I have a family that loves me and that’s… more than most kids have. And it’s really awesome for me to experience this life… because most kids don’t have this life, and I’m trying to reach out to them and help them.
No one can doubt that the sufferings of the sober, virtuous woman, in legal subjection to the mastership of a drunken, immoral husband and father over herself and children, not only from physical abuse, but from spiritual shame and humiliation, must be such as the man himself can not possibly comprehend.
Susan B. Anthony
But I have on occasion suddenly realised that some men feel slightly threatened by, or slightly baffled by, or confused by, possibly even now, by having a woman in… a very powerful role.
I want to play women my own age, rather than artificially ‘de-age’ myself so that I can play women who are younger or much younger than I am. I want to grow into those kind of more mature parts, not try and keep them at bay for as long as I possibly can.
There was a time when Pluto – which NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft at last explored in 2015, a mission I led – was considered the last planet. We now know there are thousands of other – possibly inhabited – planets.
What can possibly be the common factor in a Kim Jee-woon film? I think what really ties a lot of my projects together is that there is always a character that believes his life is not exactly the way he wishes it to be.
Clearly, high energy prices will have a large negative effect on the California economy and could possibly drag the rest of the nation into a recession.
I don’t remember my childhood very well for one reason or another, possibly childhood trauma or possibly just a very bad memory. My early life has sort of been erased from my memory banks.
People’s attitude seems to be that if you don’t have a television, you’re not connected to reality – somehow you’re not in reality. It’s quite interesting, because I suspect that possibly it’s the reverse.
Until you are somewhat comfortable and confident and embrace who you are as a person, you can’t possibly love somebody else because you don’t like yourself that much.
America is the only nation in the world based on an idea – freedom and self-government – so if we don’t understand that idea and what sacrifices were made to win that freedom and keep it for over two centuries, how can we possibly continue to keep it?
If I am a cup maker, I’m interested in making the best cup I possibly can. My effort goes into that cup, not what people think about it.
If you’re eating grassland meat, your carbon footprint is light and possibly even negative.
Have we gotten too full of ourselves? Possibly.
What I always think about when I think about ‘Girls’ is Lena being in a scene where she’s very vulnerable, possibly directing, acting, and she’s probably written the dialogue. It’s 2 in the morning. Everyone’s tired. Everyone’s grumpy. And she has a smile on her face and kindness for everyone who interacts with her.
After I graduated from Brandeis, I took all the money I had in the world, which was $5,000, and I made a short film. I made every mistake you could possibly make. It was a total disaster as a piece of work, and yet, you know, it was ambitious in some way.
I’m committed to try to make the product the best I possibly can.
While the Ark Encounter will be able to accommodate 16,000 guests per day, our consultant’s research has shown that we could possibly expect more than that during the first few weeks of opening, especially during the summer time frame.
It’s okay to fail ’cause there’s no failure, you’re just informing the richness of your experience, and that’s – that’s the greatest gift you can possibly give yourself.
Everybody is in a hurry to decode you in a certain way, and then they expect you to adhere to their definition. How can they possibly do that when you yourself are finding it hard to discover yourself?
Sushant Singh Rajput
Do a little more each day than you think you possibly can.
We don’t know how to actually code, but I wish that I did. It’s so much harder than anyone could possibly imagine – it’s like learning German.
Whoever stands by a just cause cannot possibly be called a terrorist.
There is a terribly terrestrial mindset about what we need to do to take care of the planet – as if the ocean somehow doesn’t matter or is so big, so vast that it can take care of itself, or that there is nothing that we could possibly do that we could harm the ocean.
When I wrote ‘Marley & Me,’ I had a clear audience in mind. And it did not include children. I wrote my book for adults and assumed only adults, and possibly teenagers, would be drawn to it.
How could anybody possibly have a problem with two people falling in love and finding happiness together?
The religions that fascinate me and, you know, could possibly tempt me are not the ones that involve faith or belief. They’re the ones that offer you the opportunity to know the spirit or deity.
I couldn’t possibly lead the kind of life I lead, and keep the schedule that I do, having radiation or chemotherapy.
One thing I like about trying to write is that I can possibly write myself a role. Otherwise, you’re at the mercy of whatever roles are out there that people are willing to give to you.
Don’t edit yourself too much. Don’t be afraid of looking stupid, ‘cool’ is so rarely funny I think. And just do it! Do as many gigs as you possibly can, and watch as many gigs as you possibly can. You’ll get the rhythm of it in your head and make lovely friends.
I’m mad keen on recycling because I’m worried about the next generation and where all this waste we’re producing is going. It has to stop. I wash out my plastic containers and recycle envelopes, everything I possibly can.
It is possibly not very helpful to our inner life to ponder a great deal on how the external world is reflected in our soul. By doing so, we do not get beyond a shadowy picture of the world of mental images in ourselves.
I just love writing. It’s magical, it’s somewhere else to go, it’s somewhere much more dreadful, somewhere much more exciting. Somewhere I feel I belong, possibly more than in the so-called real world.
I got ‘Elektra: Assassin,’ and that’s where I learned that she was a tortured soul. She’s been through a lot and was possibly psychologically unstable.
Perusing colorful storylines on the backs of book jackets, I realized that none of them could possibly be as dramatic as my life to date. Then sadly, I also realized I could never find the ending of my story from the safety of an armchair.
Possibly the strangest book ever made, the ‘Codex Seraphinianus’ is an encyclopedia of an imaginary world, with illegible calligraphy – it is written in an alphabet no one can understand – and surreal drawings of odd beasts and machines.
I have this weird tropism for islands. Take me to an island as far from New York as I can possibly go.
Garth Risk Hallberg
My father wanted to be a hero. He went to the Air Force Academy, was valedictorian, and then he found himself strafing villagers in Vietnam in a war he didn’t want to be in and didn’t understand. He was extremely conflicted about the line where he went from being the good guy to possibly being the bad guy.
My goal every time I make a record is just to make the funkiest, the best music I could possibly make, both lyrically, and music-wise.
When you’re playing someone that’s real, there is that hanging weight of how will they feel when they see this: will I make them feel exposed in some way, and how do I absolutely avoid doing that while playing this as accurately and empathetically as I possibly can?
In our society, people look at women who are tenacious, smart, attractive, and talented and for whatever reason say, ‘There must be something wrong with that equation. She couldn’t possibly be all of those things at once.’
I want a baby from an Italian – possibly Sicilian – donor.
Let me create great music, go in the studio, and possibly become a memory and a time stamp in people’s lives – and just give the best performances, because I know that’s all that really matters.
Many people must have noticed the intense attention given by children to the conversation of grown-ups when they cannot possibly be understanding a word of what they hear. They are trying to get hold of words, and they often demonstrate this fact by repeating joyously some word which they have been able to grasp.
Possibly I am difficult to live with, but I don’t bring my work home much. I’m either busy or not busy. And I don’t work from home. I have an office here which has a white wall. No view. I did try working in a room with a view but it was too interesting. Too distracting.
I can’t possibly overstate how much influence Rush had on me as a young teenager. I would say from about 1981 to 1987, they were my gods.
Hollywood is the most superficial thing you could possibly be a part of and if I weren’t attractive I wouldn’t be working at all.
Certainly, I think being depressed is absolutely part of the human condition, it has to be, if there’s joy there’s its opposite, and it’s something you ride if you possibly can.
I think for us as people, when we can help someone with a blood transfusion, when we can help somebody with a monetary donation that can go towards research, to know that you can possibly save a life, it’s huge.
You know journalists. You know the media. They are going to hang on to anything negative they possibly can.
I think the World Cup is going to be bigger than what a lot of people are anticipating. At this stage in my career, when there is an opportunity, albeit a small one, of being on the team, what a great way to possibly end my career.
It would be curious to discover who it is to whom one writes in a diary. Possibly to some mysterious personification of one’s own identity.
If they don’t care about me, how can they possibly care about anyone else?
If we have wealth, it will be protected from inflation and possibly even enhanced in value.
My plans were to practice law and then possibly go into public service.
I’m learning as much martial arts as I possibly can. My show is packed with action. Enough to get a rise.
Jill Eisenstadt’s comic second novel, ‘Kiss Out,’ is a work of such extravagant wackiness, eccentricity, and exuberance that any attempt to squeeze it into the confines of a simple plot summary seems doomed to failure and is possibly pointless.
The whole world appears to me like a huge vacuum, a vast empty space, whence nothing desirable, or at least satisfactory, can possibly be derived; and I long daily to die more and more to it; even though I obtain not that comfort from spiritual things which I earnestly desire.
One should indeed read Pope with his notes available, in the Twickenham edition possibly, to see what a vast amount he did understand about Homer.
It is only the forcible propagation of conventional Christianity that makes the agnostic so bitter toward the church. He knows that all the doctrines cannot possibly be true, but he would view them with toleration if he were asked merely to let them alone for the benefit of the masses whom they can help and succour.
H. P. Lovecraft
No one could possibly look all the time like my photographs. It is dreadfully hard to live up to them. They stare at me everywhere.
My experience is that you can’t possibly win against whatever the tidal wave is that’s coming at you.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura
I honestly can’t describe what goes on in my head when I’m out there. People who don’t wrestle can’t possibly understand it. When I’m in the ring, I don’t feel any pain. I’m in another world out there.
My strong suits, coming from poetry, will naturally be description, which I love doing. It comes very easily, and possibly structure, up to a point.
I first saw Walter Hill’s second film, ‘The Driver,’ as a teenager, late at night on the BBC, quite possibly sitting too close to the telly. Given that this 1978 slice of neo-noir takes place almost entirely in the dark streets of a deserted downtown L.A., it’s really a perfect midnight movie.
You’ve got to try to guard, make an effort to defend to the best of your ability. You have to rebound the ball, which was an area that was so critical. And they wanted you to play smart and have fun. I’ve kind of tried to let our people understand those are the most important things that I could possibly tell them.
Working on any show that works is the best job you can possibly have in any area of the business. You’ve got so much going for you, a good community, everybody’s hanging together, and you get to do it every week.
James L. Brooks
Who is Mike Judge? Let me think. The only way I could possibly answer that question would be in a nonverbal fashion. I think I could do an interpretive dance that would answer that question for you.
The first two missions have some test objectives, some new capabilities that we’re going to try to develop on orbit to possibly be used on later flights.
Picasso, Michelangelo, possibly, might be verging on genius, but I don’t think a painter like Rembrandt is a genius.
It took me a while to figure that out and to realize what a gift that I had been given. And when I finally did, I dedicated myself to be the best pitcher I possibly could be, for as long as I possibly could be.
The perception in Silicon Valley is that if you dress well, you couldn’t possibly be smart, or you’re in P.R. but couldn’t possibly run a company. I remember briefly attempting the Adidas and jeans and sweatshirt over T-shirt look, but I realized I was trying to dress like a young tech geek, and that just wasn’t me.
It’s hilarious, because my guitar has what’s known as a tremolo bar or a whammy bar. And the whammy bar is probably the most alien thing on my guitar that could possibly relate to a classical guitar.
I would love to give you a more in-depth coherent explanation of my view of the soul, and if I had one I would. The soul and my concept of it are as ephemeral as anybody’s, and possibly more so.
Bullfights are hugely popular because you can sit comfortably with a hot dog and possibly watch a man die. It won’t be me, but I can sit comfortably and watch it.
I look at my little girl and I wonder what she’s going to be and what she’s going to do and what is it that leads girls certain directions in life. I think a lot of that goes back to what kind of father they had, and so it makes me want to be the best dad I can possibly be.
I’ve played every instrument you could possibly think of for 10 minutes. So I’m mediocre at everything. I can play drums, guitar, piano, violin, saxophone, clarinet, flute… Just not well.
The point is to expand the scope of what a movie can possibly mean or be, to get people involved because they’re artistic or understand the point of the material, not just because they fit a certain bill aesthetically.
I’m always drawn to the thing I think I can’t possibly do, because I tend to be better when I think I can’t possibly do something than I am when I’m pretty sure I can do something.
I think the government should do everything they possibly can to, to bring this crisis to an end; and that means going after BP, enforcing the laws that are on the books, and restoring the gulf to its original condition.
Oh, I love to lie. That’s one of my favorite things in the world, coming up to somebody, especially press people, and telling them some enormous lie that couldn’t possibly be true.
I was called a misogynist because I was reducing women to mothers. ‘Reducing women to mothers’ – now there is possibly the most anti-women statement I’ve heard.
If you’re black in this country, if you’re a woman in this country, if you are any minority in this country at all, what could possibly possess you to vote Republican?
Trayvon Martin was 17, Mike Brown was young, Tamir Rice was 12. And so young people are affected by it, possibly the most affected, because they’re seeing themselves.
When the art world is done wrong, a reader’s faith is lost and possibly not recuperable.
I think the problem we have as apes is we’re asking far bigger questions than we could possibly process.
I came to the conclusion that it was unlikely that a man as really awful as I think that Steve Jobs was could possibly create a great company for the long term. I just don’t believe bad guys do well in the long run.
How can you possibly reconcile the justice of God with the idea that only through Christ can you be saved? Most of the world lives and dies and never even hears of Christ. There has to be some mechanism set up for all those who have ever lived to have an opportunity to hear of Christ.
Directing non-actors is difficult. Directing actors in a foreign language is even more difficult. Directing non-actors in a language that you yourself don’t understand is the craziest thing you can possibly think of.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Everyone is always working on their body and trying to make it the best that they possibly can. That’s what I do every single day, mostly for performance, but also just for me.
But I do think the survey group – and I think Charlie Duelfer is a great leader. I have the utmost confidence in Charles. I think you will get as full an answer as you can possibly get.
There are nights when you are lucky enough to tap into something about yourself that you are unaware of and can’t possibly control, and somehow, at that moment, other people can view it or sense it or feel it.
I think that we’re foolhardy to not be engaging in federal funding of stem-cell research in the most aggressive way we possibly can.
For me, Glasgow is all about the people and the spirit of the place. You have enough Gregg’s bakers, though, I’ll say that. The opening of the 1977 ‘Star Wars’ movie was possibly the only time I’ve seen a longer queue round the block than in Glasgow for sausage rolls. That was quite an eye-opener.
Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.
I really just want to work with good directors and learn as much as I possibly can.
We need to hit pause, and possibly reset, as we think about this whole Syrian refugee resettlement issue.
If our main goal is to connect emotionally, we should want to have as many tools as we possibly can to achieve that goal. The more abilities that we have, the more choices we can make musically.
Playing for Australia, if they told me at 36 or 37 or whatever I’m going to be, that I can go to camp and possibly make a fifth Olympics, then why not?
The thing I do remember the most of Wrestlemania, which was a high point for me, was Wrestlemania 1. The fact we made it over the fence. Then Wrestlemania 3. Bobby Heenan and myself coming back for Wrestlemania 17 and the gimmick battle royal. So many highlights, couldn’t possibly cover them all.
We’ve only explored about 5% of our ocean. There are great discoveries yet to be made down there – fantastic creatures representing millions of years of evolution and possibly bioactive compounds that could benefit us in ways we can’t even imagine.
We have always wanted to give back to cinema, and we couldn’t possibly think of a better way to do that than facilitate films which we believe will make Malayalam cinema proud.
I’d done acting at a local drama school on Saturdays. I just enjoyed it. It never entered my mind I could possibly do it for a career.
I grew up singing and dancing, so people have been calling me gay since fifth grade. I’ve heard everything you could possibly hear about it. But I do love gay people, so I’m not going to act like I was insulted or angry about it.
There is a one-in-300 chance that Earth will be struck on March 16, 2880, by an asteroid large enough to destroy civilization and possibly cause the extinction of the human race. But, on the bright side, Prince could re-release his hit song with the new refrain ‘We’re gonna party like its twenty-eight seventy-nine.’
I don’t think necessity is the mother of invention. Invention, in my opinion, arises directly from idleness, possibly also from laziness – to save oneself trouble.
If it’s unseemly and possibly dangerous for a man to be angry, it’s totally unacceptable for a woman to be angry.
There are so many things I want to do. Like, I want to get an artist, a musician, a photographer, and a bunch of dancers that I know and just travel across Africa and just film it and just see what happens. Do and learn as much as I possibly can. Luckily, I have a lot more time.
I don’t understand the iPhone. I just don’t get it. Don’t ya’ll have to write serious emails throughout the day? How can you possibly manage detailed missives on a phone with no keys?
I don’t think I have advice for female directors as opposed to male directors. I think all first-time directors should try and be as prepared as they possibly can, because it’s hard!
I try very hard to write the best book I possibly can, every time.
Batman has what is quite possibly the best rogues’ gallery every created. People who have never read a comic can name half a dozen of his foes, and that’s barely scratching the surface.
Atheists have as much conscience, possibly more, than people with deep religious conviction, and they still have the same problem of how they reconcile themselves to a bad deed in the past. It’s a little easier if you’ve got a god to forgive you.
How many deaf people do you know in real life? Unless they live in a cave, or are 14, which seems to be true for most people in this business, what could I possibly tell them that they don’t already know?
I hate tenure. Tenure allows teachers to put their feet up on the desk and possibly have a job forever. That’s why I got turned on to charter schools. It’s a business model. Every employee and every teacher will be monitored by performance.
Republicans and Democrats have used accounting gimmicks and competing government analyses to deceive the public into believing that 2 + 2 = 6. If our leaders cannot agree on the numbers, if ‘facts’ are fictional, how can they possibly have a substantive debate on solutions?
J. C. Watts
I know how to treat my voice to make it sound as good as it possibly can – which is still not that good.
Do you remember campaigns like ‘Keep America beautiful’? What about ‘Buckle up’? I believe we need an approach like this to attack obesity. Let’s be a good industry that does 100% of what it possibly can – not grudgingly, but willingly.
I think Americans generally are not used to working very hard, in terms of working for the collective. I think in our country we have taken individualism to its farthest reaches, possibly.
If you have an ongoing relationship with a person, think of everything positive about that person that you possibly can and enter your interaction from that space. Ignore all the crap that used to drive you up the wall before. You will be amazed at what a change this attitude shift brings about.
‘Top Model’ is pretty good, because it gives these girls an opportunity to chase their passion and possibly get a contract.
I just realized that basketball and going to the NBA was a possibility, and that’s something that I want to use to better my family and possibly help the world if I can.
I like to think of myself as the corniest, most awful thing you could possibly imagine.
The Who quite possibly remain the greatest live band ever. Even the list-driven punk legend and music historian Johnny Ramone agreed with me on this.
When I first left university, I thought about going into the private sector. But I discovered when I went to interview that I could only have a career in the back office, or doing HR. The attitude was, ‘My dear lady, you cannot possibly think about going on the board.’
Writing is possibly an art, but crime writing is definitely a craft.
By the time Apple’s Macintosh operating system finally falls into the public domain, there will be no machine that could possibly run it. The term of copyright for software is effectively unlimited.
It is important for investors to understand what they do and don’t know. Learn to recognize that you cannot possibly know what is going to happen in the future, and any investment plan that is dependent on accurately forecasting where markets will be next year is doomed to failure.
During a time of war, we ask our troops to give their best even to the point of sacrificing their own lives. When compared against that, how much of a sacrifice is it for a president to engage in a possibly contentious debate with Congress about whether military action is a good idea?
When I’m around people having conversations about their day, I’m looking at them, like, ‘What could they possibly be talking about? How are we not talking about deconstructing white supremacy right now? How are we not trying to save trans people?’
It’s like taking over This Is Your Life from Eamonn Andrews – you just open your mouth and hope you sound like yourself. That’s all you can possibly do.
When I think of music, I think of music in its totality, complete. From the lowest blues to the highest symphony, you know, so what I’d like to do is exemplify each style of as many periods as I can possibly do.
I feel like, growing up, I watched football, obviously, and you see great players, and as a fan, you want to watch the best you can possibly watch, and you want to see what’s capable of being made.
J. J. Watt
Luckily, I’m young and I have a great training staff that helps me take care of my body day in and day out. You make sure you’re eating right. Make sure you’re hitting the iron, lifting as much as you possibly can. That’s easier said than done because we don’t have many practice days.
I like to do everything you can possibly do before you go into rehearsal, because once we are in rehearsal or on the stage there will be a problem I didn’t anticipate. It’s really good to think we got it all nailed – of course you’ve never got it all nailed.
I am actually talking about possibly adapting ‘The Boys,’ by Garth Ennis, which would not be a comedy, but an action movie with comedy elements to it.
I say getting a lecturing from Oprah is probably the most terrifying lecture you could possibly get.
No one has a First Amendment right to lie to a federal agency in order to claim an improper tax status in order to avoid legal disclosure requirements on political spending and thereby receive undue tax benefits. That’s a criminal false statement and possibly a fraud.
You need to recognize that the copyright date on a book reflects when it came out, not when it was written – assume that the information in the book is at least a year older than the copyright date, and possibly two.
There is still a lot of football in me and I enjoy watching the players go out there and be the best players they can possibly be.
The limitless content of our universe might be only one instance of a large (and possibly infinite) number of other universes.
Often in the past, there have been authors that were deeply disappointed in their adaptation, but that’s because they haven’t accepted the fact that a movie is a different thing, and it can’t possibly be the same as the book.
The most audacious thing I could possibly state in this day and age is that life is worth living. It’s worth being bashed against. It’s worth getting scarred by. It’s worth pouring yourself over every one of its coals.
I would most like to do film or TV. Possibly theatre in the future, but I’m in L.A. a lot of the time at the moment and if I was going to do theatre it would be in London.
Information on how to heal autism and how to possibly delay vaccines or prevent autism shouldn’t come from me. It should come from the medical establishment.
The longer mathematics lives the more abstract – and therefore, possibly also the more practical – it becomes.
E. T. Bell
I’m not one of those women writers who are obsessed by their ego, possibly because I don’t have one.
I don’t want to demonise ‘Johnny.’ I was really proud of what he achieved. Especially within stand-up. He was quite a unique voice. I will always possibly be trading off ‘Johnny’s name, but there’s a lot more things that I’m able to do now – the strengths that ‘Michael’ can bring to it.
I think kids will read more good books than we can possibly produce.
Not to be too detailed, but I’ve had an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriages and I’ve had fertility treatments. I’ve done all the stuff you can possibly do to try get pregnant.
As soon as you start making a record, things start getting lined up: the promotion, possibly even a tour.
I put together the influences of my life in as clear a way as I possibly can, in the same way that Beethoven or Schoenberg or Bach put their influences together.
I think any actor worth their salt wants to show as much versatility as they possibly can.
I like the Foo Fighters a lot – apart from them being friends of mine as well. They’re definitely a fantastic live act to see: so much energy and possibly even bigger in Europe than they are in the U.S., and that’s great.
With a lot of hair and make-up then I’m possibly, remotely attractive. But it’s rare, I don’t think I’m ugly but I’m nothing particularly special. I’m not a yoga and health girl. I don’t exercise that much and I eat crap and smoke and bite my nails.
Lisa Marie Presley
What I feel responsible for is, if my name is on a comic, I want it to be the best-written comic that I can possibly do. I want it to include some new things we haven’t seen before, new story ideas, new characters. Quality, quality art, all those kinds of things.
Fight hierarchy and bureaucracy as hard as you possibly can. Don’t ever let it become the master; always remember it’s the servant.
It’s to paint directly on the canvas without any funny business, as it were, and I use almost pure turpentine to start with, adding oil as I go along until the medium becomes pure oil. I use as little oil as I can possibly help, and that’s my method.
The moment that you feel that just possibly you are walking down the street naked… that’s the moment you may be starting to get it right.
I’ve struggled a lot in my life with feeling like a failure. I lived in a ‘prison of perfectionism,’ holding myself to a standard I couldn’t possibly live up to. Then I became a mom, and all of a sudden, there arose even more opportunities for failure.
I gotta make a living. I make no bones about that. Most actors do. But within that context, I’ve never not tried to make something as fresh and alive as I possibly could make it.
You can’t do things for money. You just can’t act them. There’s gotta be something about the script that you really want to do. I wouldn’t do a job if I didn’t think I could do the best work I possibly could.
I believed or thought I was disoriented and the victim of a bizarre dream and I believe I paced in and out of the room and possibly into one of the other rooms. I may have re-examined her, finally believing that this was true.
These days I have to be extra nice in stores. It never fails that whenever I look as bad as I can possibly look or I am sort of cranky because the store is out of something, that is precisely the time when someone one will recognize me and say: ‘I really like your show.’
I’ve been making movies a long time. I’m a professional at it. I’m not a professional at making soundtracks – that’s not my job. My job is to put the right songs in the movie so the movie works the best it possibly can.
Original thought is like original sin: both happened before you were born to people you could not have possibly met.
My bravery however was the effect of assurance for could I have believed the current report, I should have fled as fast as any man, no man can possibly have a greater reluctance to an intimacy with Sir William Howe than my Self.
We conceal it from ourselves in vain – we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man cannot possibly live for a moment without it.
Sometimes, I seem to be only able to actually move and get going with things on the razor edge of possibly still managing whatever it is I’m supposed to do. I think, secretly, I might even get a buzz out of it. Maybe I crave the adrenalin like some sort of crazy gambler high on risking everything on the turn of a card.
I was a child when the March on Washington led by Martin Luther King occurred, and I wanted to hear what was going on. I wanted to be a part of it. I wanted to contribute in the best way I possibly could.
What could I have possibly learned except the really most important thing, which is that I did not want to work at the ‘New York Times’? Beyond that, I learned how a newspaper works.
I’m the worst ad anyone could possibly be for abstaining from anything.
It can’t possibly last for years and browsing has its limits. Only a certain amount is healthy or wise.
There’s been talk of YES possibly doing something on Broadway in New York. People have approached me with that idea, and there are discussions about that.
Rome is possibly my favorite city in the world. I have such fond memories there – most of them food related.
I found the offer of a knighthood something that I couldn’t possibly accept. I found it to be somehow squalid, a knighthood. There’s a relationship to government about knights.
Regardless of any experiences in the past, for me it really is important to be engrossed in as much of the creative process as I possibly can. I was surprised with how much the eight years I spent on ‘Castle’ actually serviced that. I ended up, in a way, having a free education on that show.
I think it’s so exciting to try anything you possibly can.
I have to keep developing and progressing and strive to be as good a player as I can possibly be.
I think a lot of times people look at me and say, ‘Well, we can’t possibly hand a show over to her to run.’ It seemed like executives would be worried about me controlling a room and having power, and I’d say, ‘Oh, I can control a room. I can give an order like nobody’s business.’
Everyone can guess what ‘Corn Flakes’ tastes like, even if you’ve never had them. But what, pray tell, does ‘High School Musical’ or ‘Spider-Man’ cereal possibly taste like? In this late era, we have reached the ultimate deracination between product image and what actually sits on our spoon.
Paul Di Filippo
The responsibility that I feel is to do as good a job as a journalist as I can possibly do.
My family is as far from a stage family as you could ever possibly find.
In a bubble, eventually people start saying, ‘Wait a minute… these prices are way too high! What is anyone buying anymore? What could they possibly be thinking?’ And then there’s a correction and a bursting.
Robert J. Shiller
There’s no way you can possibly intellectually justify, ‘Well, it’s okay for the Western Judeo-Christian countries to have nuclear weapons, but not for a country like Iran.’ That logic goes nowhere fast.
Owners sometimes think their dogs have already suffered so much that they couldn’t possibly inflict any more criticism. Yet it’s that very firm, effective training that would make those dogs happier and more secure.
When we get on stage, naturally, you just get out there and work it as hard as you humanly possibly can do it.
No one can possibly achieve any real and lasting success or ‘get rich’ in business by being a conformist.
J. Paul Getty
No one person can possibly combine all the elements supposed to make up what everyone means by friendship.
Francis Marion Crawford
I think, ‘How could anybody mock a good pop song?’ It is timeless; it transcends barriers; it breaks down every single type of social barrier that you can possibly have. It can deal with the most difficult subjects, even if it abstracts the subject matter.
The biggest risk I’ve ever taken is going on American Idol and trying to be myself. I wasn’t going to try too hard to conform, and I knew that it could possibly not work out.
Wonderful characters rotate around and through bookshops on a daily basis, competing with and possibly even triumphing over fiction when it comes to entertainment, strangeness and inspiration.
Even though money seems such an objective topic, it can also be the most intimate, and possibly harmful, part of a relationship.
I’m privileged to have had some success, but I’ve never forgotten what it was like to queue for a half-crown gallery seat for ‘Oliver!’ which is why I ensure that there are £20 day tickets for ‘Miss Saigon’ and that the balconies in my theatres are as comfortable as I can possibly make them.
We can’t possibly fight all the terrorists in all the countries where they exist because we don’t have the money or manpower to do so.
I think when you love a child, it’s a different kind of love. You think, ‘I love more every day. I love more every day, more every day, I couldn’t possibly love any more, I’m going to blow up.’ And then you blow up. Your chest actually starts to hurt. You love so much, you think I can’t love any more.
The rudiment of verse may, possibly, be found in the spondee.
Edgar Allan Poe
I’m glad there are a lot of guitar players pursuing technique as diligently as they possibly can, because it leaves this whole other area open to people like me.
Why anybody gets my sense of humor I never know, but I do know that when they do, I keep them as close as I possibly can.
Just as Mars – a desert planet – gives us insights into global climate change on Earth, the promise awaits for bringing back to life portions of the Red Planet through the application of Earth Science to its similar chemistry, possibly reawakening its life-bearing potential.
I’m a yarnaholic. That means I have more yarn stashed away than any one person could possibly use in three or four lifetimes. There’s something inspiring about yarn that makes me feel I could never have enough.
The tension I feel is the moment they say, ‘Action!’ Movies are like lightning in a bottle, and you always want to find when you possibly can catch a surprising moment.
I wanted to weave a green thread through the Conservative party; that’s my job, and I signed up imagining that I would be in a very small minority within my party, possibly even on my own, battling away on these issues.
It’s an honor to live on a legacy, getting to do what we love to do and try to be the best musicians that we can possibly be.
I know, people have had different things to say about Marvel, about how creatively free they are or not free they are, but for me, the rule has always just been stay as good as I can possibly be, and stay one step ahead of the curve, and stay unique, and stay myself. And they seem to like that.
To seduce a woman famous for strict morals, religious fervor and the happiness of her marriage: what could possibly be more prestigious?
The last thing I ever wanted to get involved with is Hollywood. The way it works is that people get an idea you could possibly do something, but there’s a one-in-a-hundred chance that it could get made.
I spend as much time as I possibly can doing things for other people, if I can. If I see a need and I feel that I can help, I do it. I work a great deal in terms of charities and things.
We have observed that, in society and the world in which we live, selfishness has increased more than love for others, and that men of good will must work, each with his own strengths and expertise, to ensure that love for others increases until it is equal and possibly exceeds love for oneself.
Truthfully, this is how I approach my workout: I want to be the best athlete I can possibly be. If I can out-perform some of the better athletes then I’m happy. When I look at the NFL or the NBA, these guys look how I want to look – it’s useable, functional muscle.
Technology steers what 2 billion people are thinking and believing every day. It’s possibly the largest source of influence over 2 billion people’s thoughts that has ever been created. Religions and governments don’t have that much influence over people’s daily thoughts.
In many cases, the Treasury will get preferred or convertible preferred stock for the money it gives to banks. These shares typically don’t have voting rights, possibly to give more of a hands-off appearance to the government.
Jerry A. Webman
John Fahey, thought during his lifetime to be possibly more than a little crazy, was the author of some thirty albums of gnomically introverted droning guitar instrumentals, which I listened to heavily in my teens and twenties; I even produced an hour or so of banjo music in an imitative John Fahey style.
Madison Smartt Bell
We obviously would like to get unemployment as low as we possibly can.
I’m fascinated by adult women who don’t have close friends and how that could come to be. I think when you’re a kid, the relationships are so intimate, and you’re so connected to your girls, so what becomes of them? What could possibly happen to have you become an adult woman and no longer have that?
It just seemed too weird to me. I don’t know, maybe they were smoking a joint in the car downstairs from their parents’ apartment. I had to go that far to put together a scenario of how they could have possibly recognized me.
When we launch a product, we’re already working on the next one. And possibly even the next, next one.
I would suggest the taxation of all property equally, whether church or corporation, exempting only the last resting place of the dead and possibly, with proper restrictions, church edifices.
Ulysses S. Grant
When in the end, the day came on which I was going away, I learned the strange learning that things can happen which we ourselves cannot possibly imagine, either beforehand, or at the time when they are taking place, or afterwards when we look back on them.
Far too many government spending programs have gone years, even decades, without being reauthorized, leaving the American people less able to effectively review, rethink, and possibly eliminate government programs.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
I don’t really care what’s going on I just care about getting my job done the best that I can possibly do and deal with the other things in my life that take a lot of time and a lot of thought.
We cannot possibly let ourselves get frozen into regarding everyone we do not know as an absolute stranger.
I barely listen to the radio, to be honest. I don’t want anything infiltrating my ears that I don’t want to possibly put out in my song.
You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.
I’m going to die with my mind intact. And to me that is the most exciting way you could possibly die.
Any American who has spent time in Iraq or Afghanistan will tell you: the closer you get, the less certain you are of anything. If you are in Iraq, if you are in Afghanistan, everything is ambiguous. Everything is murky and gray and uncertain and possibly lethal.
The thing that sets Mars apart is that it is the one planet that is enough like Earth that you can imagine life possibly once having taken hold there.
The U.S. has been in control of the domain names of the Internet since its inception. If we relinquish this control, it goes possibly to the U.N.
AIDS obliges people to think of sex as having, possibly, the direst consequences: suicide. Or murder.
I can think and play stuff in classical music that possibly violinists who didn’t have access to other types of music could never do. It means I’m more flexible within classical music, to be a servant to the composer.
Until you have kids, you can’t imagine how much you could possibly love a human being.
The mass of Venom. I mean, he’s like a big, foreboding, physical presence. Actually, let me correct myself – the eyes, the tongue, the mouth, those are his most distinguishing traits, and so making those look as photoreal and true to the comics as we possibly could was super important to me.
I’m scared of failure so much more than any of the other girls I compete against that I work so much harder than they possibly could. I’m totally down with spiders and frogs and heights and snakes – everything; I’m cool with it.
Happiness includes chiefly the idea of satisfaction after full honest effort. No one can possibly be satisfied and no one can be happy who feels that in some paramount affairs he failed to take up the challenge of life.
Possibly because I grew up not feeling very confident about my own physical appearance, I developed internal devices so that I could integrate into society.
You’re always going to believe in yourself, and I have to thank God for that, but it’s pretty hard to believe that you can make it to the big leagues and that you can possibly get 200 hits three years in a row. I feel very proud.
I’ve never been someone who is cast for having a lovely figure but for whatever qualities I could possibly bring to a role, so I’m still castable.
Ford Maddox Ford’s ‘The Good Soldier’ is my favourite novel. I first read it in the 1950s and have read it about 20 times since. It’s possibly the best-constructed book in the English language.
Well, I say that the most important job you can possibly have is raising a child, and it needs to be treated that way. You have to show them, rather than just talk to them.
I just don’t see where I could possibly fit in directing a feature.
I managed to survive the worst things any entertainer could possibly go through.
As a 29-year-old, the only thing that I can possibly think is that if I’m still performing at 50, it’s because I’ll have had disastrous marriages and I have to pay for them.
Performers should really go to the best schools, like Lady Gaga, you know, she went to NYU and had great teachers… It’s best to really study your technique as much as you possibly can so you can have a long career instead of a quick one that’s a failure.
I try to be cognisant of when and how and what I eat and get as much rest as I possibly can, as that helps the vocal cords.
I don’t know… part of, I suppose, my way out of everything, has been really taking care of myself. I think that comes from an awareness that my children really need me, and they need me to be the healthiest version of myself that I can possibly be.
I bow to no one in my ambition to see Glasgow be as successful as it possibly can be.
At some point in the future – possibly the very near future – Britain will be hit by a deadly pandemic, and its impact could be utterly devastating.
I think if I tried very hard, I could do a novel or a play, a poem. I could possibly paint a picture, but I know I can’t write music. And still, it is the most accessible of all arts, as you know when you hear a tune.
In this culture, the phrase ‘black woman’ is not synonymous with ‘tender,’ or ‘gentle.’ It’s as if those words couldn’t possibly speak to the reality of black females.
You label somebody ‘New Age,’ and that’s automatic mockery: ‘She cannot possibly be a serious thinker.’
Outside of advertising, the person who’s influenced me most is quite possibly Frank Gehry.
When you become a parent, it blows you open in ways that you never thought possible in terms of a level of love that I know I never thought I could possibly have.
I’ve seen a lot of shows, but I can’t possibly cram in everything that I’d like to, and it’s exhausting trying to.
I should be a postage stamp, because that’s the only way I’ll ever get licked. I’m beautiful. I’m fast. I’m so mean I make medicine sick. I can’t possibly be beat.
I have very little fashion sense, and to tell you the truth, I give it very little thought. I dress to be as comfortable as I possibly can. Most of my clothing is either black, grey, or dark blue, and I don’t really wear a lot of colours. But I do like jackets. I have a little bit of an obsession with them.
Everyday I strive to, at least, recognise my short-comings and the things I have to do to be the best person that I can possibly be.
I made a life for myself in Africa that was as far as you could possibly get from art school at Yale.
I am not someone who deserves to be dissected and analyzed like some tragic example of everything that can possibly go wrong for a professional athlete.
I couldn’t possibly have any regrets, because I’ve been very lucky, I’ve been celebrated, and I’ve survived. I couldn’t have one single regret. That would be absurd.
When I first started talking about gay marriage, most people in the gay community looked at me as if I was insane or possibly a fascist reactionary.
My job is to look out on that world that I write about and be as honest as I possibly can about that world. If that’s optimistic and uplifting, OK. If it’s not, OK.
As the egalitarianism of Marxism is attractive to many, socialism could have attracted many followers in America, anyway. But there is no doubt that it could not possibly have affected us so widely and so deeply as it has, had it not been heavily financed.
B. Carroll Reece
Plan to build up your food supply just as you would a savings account. Save a little for storage each paycheck. Can or bottle fruit and vegetables from your gardens and orchards. Learn how to preserve food through drying and possibly freezing. Make your storage a part of your budget.
Ezra Taft Benson
Everybody knows what my sexual orientation is. I don’t need to scream it out. I won’t, only because I live in a country where I could possibly be jailed for saying this.
I’ve had every haircut you could possibly imagine: mullet, tail, dreadlocks, afro, crew cut. It’s always been an expression of who I am.
I just assumed the world was full of solo percussionists. I couldn’t find sticks or music or anything where I was, but that was expected because there was nothing there anyway. And I think that was possibly the greatest asset for me, just not knowing.
Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.
‘Words, Words, Words’ was very much its title. It’s just words, words, words and trying to show that I can pack as much material into an hour as I possibly could word count-wise.
I read way, way more Andre Norton than could possibly have been healthy. It was a short hop from her to the rest of the library’s science fictional and fantastic holdings.
Is our national goal to place as many people on welfare, food stamp support, as we can possibly put on that program? Is that our goal? Is that a moral vision for the United States of America, just to see how many people we can place in a situation where they’re dependent on the federal government for their food?
The mysteriousness and mystique of space is such, that science fiction attempts to tantalize you by telling you a story that could possibly be out there and that’s the appeal of science fiction.
The fact that slavery is written into the Constitution is about as entrenched a form of classism as you could possibly imagine.
I personally believe this Agency has always been very dedicated and has always worked as hard as it possibly can to do things as safely and as effectively as possible.
It’s horrible to think that a small cadre of people would manipulate that information. I mean, for God’s sake, we’ve admitted that we were experimenting on our veterans with mustard gas. So there is no security question. It can’t possibly be the reason.
Through these ongoing activities and possibly in the future, a Canadian will go live and work on the International Space Station and we will continue to make Canadians proud of our achievements in space.
I think the worst part about a breakup sometimes, if one could choose a worst part, would possibly be if you get out of a relationship, and you don’t recognize yourself because you changed a lot about you.
Nothing can be divided into more parts than it can possibly be constituted of. But matter (i.e. finite) cannot be constituted of infinite parts.
It’s very weird about movies: you never know which ones are going to stay alive and which one are going to be meaningless. When you’re there, you couldn’t possibly predict it. Some things slowly die, and others slowly stay a while.
What if an asteroid were to strike planet Earth? What could we possibly do to prevent it? However many guys we have working on this problem, it can’t possibly be enough.
One cannot possibly understand the teaching of the saints unless one has a pure mind and is trying to imitate their life.
At some level it’s still hard for me to admit that my father died. I can talk about it and around it, but those two words. ‘He died.’ What can that possibly mean? That I won’t get to hear his voice again?
Rock n’ roll was one thing, and then they chopped off the ‘roll’ and called it ‘rock,’ which became a sort of umbrella term for anything with a guitar in it. Like hair bands. How could we possibly believe that? It’s just gotten downright silly, to the point where now it’s sort of become like professional wrestling.
If Congress doesn’t raise taxes, you cannot get a private investment account without forgoing a portion, possibly all, of your guaranteed benefit check.
If, in the schools, the classical language would no longer be taught, whom could we entrust with the writing of memorials, documents, letters and notes in the public service? How could we possibly assign important offices and heavy responsibilities to someone who cannot even write fluently?
As a matter of fact, I’ve been to Italy many times before I met my husband, which he can’t even imagine that I could possibly know anything about Italian food. But, you know, Italian food’s really basic, and there’s so many different variations on it that what my husband did is he broke it down for me.
It suddenly struck me – I’m 70 years old. I wonder if I could possibly end my life the way I started it: doing the most joyful thing I ever did, which is to sing.
You cannot predict literary success; the only way you can possibly aim for it is to do your thing and do it well.
Genes can’t possibly explain all of what makes us what we are.
Sports and fashion move so fast that I can’t possibly keep my ear to the ground. For one thing, my ear trumpet gets in the way.
I don’t write songs that don’t affect me on some level, because I figure if I am not moved by it, if its not something that I have a longing to celebrate or to be reminded of, if it doesn’t affect me, then how can I possibly think it is going to affect somebody else. My touchstone is write something that matters.
Sports – especially the NBA – function as a place where American society pretends to discuss and pretends to solve questions and historical agonies that can’t possibly be solved within the realm of sports.
I shall soon be six-and-twenty. Is there anything in the future that can possibly console us for not being always twenty-five?
Michael Bennet can’t possibly understand the impact of flooding our job market with workers that aren’t citizens of this country, and when we fight, they call us racist. When did wanting to feed your family become racist?
I just think we need to find a way, because we don’t dispose of them very well; they have very bad chemicals in them. If we could just find a way, maybe start at a small step with eliminating batteries perhaps in small electronic devices, and then possibly in the future go bigger, that would be great.
I was too shy, I think, to sing publicly. It takes a particular kind of person. And when I was young, I was not that person. In the first instance, when a record company said to me, do you want to try and make your record, my first reaction was, no, I’m not worthy – I couldn’t possibly, and so on and so forth.
In one year I won two titles – one being the Premier League. I have a trophy at home that not many people have and in possibly the most competitive league in the world.
My father taught me many important giving lessons, but two stand out. First, always give as much as you possibly can. And second, give equally from among your resources – your time, your mind and your capital. These are principles I live by.
We want to stay on this tour bus together as long as we possibly can. I’m sure a lot of bands are like, ‘I need my own space.’ But we don’t. I want to be with these guys forever.
I think action movies bring more excitement than tears, but I always want to take it to another level. I mean, I think if one appreciates anything in life to a certain degree, it could possibly bring tears to your eyes.
On the day I was born, or possibly on one of the following days, my father went on a walk in the forested hills and thought of a name for me. His first son was called Daniel, and Samuel in memory of one of his forefathers.
How do you possibly say that a cover band is better than the band that created and wrote the material? It’s absurd.
I have too much respect for the characters I play to make them anything but as real as they can possibly be. I have a great deal of respect for all of them, otherwise I wouldn’t do them. And I don’t want to screw them by not portraying them honestly.
I like the idea that people who see ‘Gone Girl’ are possibly going to come out with incredibly different reactions to it – not just between men and women, but if you are in a good relationship or a bad relationship. Everyone is going to bring their own bundle of prejudices and viewpoints and experiences to it.
That is the meaning of the Trump brand – being the boss who is so rich and so powerful he can do whatever he wants. So the way in which he ran for president was to embody that idea as fully as he possibly could with his outrageousness.
I think the most important thing when you’re telling a story is to just tell the story as best as you possibly can.
There’s just nothing funnier or crazier than that – doing your Broadway debut as Spider-Man in ‘Spider-Man’ the musical. It was, like, the last thing I could have ever possibly imagined happening. I mean, I would tell people I was playing Spider-Man, and people would just break out laughing because it was so ridiculous!
No institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under a leadership composed of average human beings.
There is more felicity on the far side of baldness than young men can possibly imagine.
Logan Pearsall Smith
The movements which I make I cannot possibly repress because, at the time, I am actually the idea I am interpreting, and naturally I picture my players and auditors as in accord with me. I know, of course, that my mannerisms have been widely discussed.
John Philip Sousa
It’s amazing how small business owners figure out how to stretch a dollar as far as they possibly can.
Our first concern is the security of the lawyers because without security you can’t possibly have a fair trial, if trial at all, and that’s not been adequately attended to.
Thus, the controversy about the Moral Majority arises not only from its views, but from its name – which, in the minds of many, seems to imply that only one set of public policies is moral and only one majority can possibly be right.
I have friends who are very pessimistic. They say you can’t possibly be an optimist nowadays. But I think, taking the longer view, you can still be as optimistic as you want.
I think possibly the first film that has music as its leading character.
Working with real firefighters keeps us really grounded. How can you possibly complain that your trailer is not at the correct temperature when you are working with a man who ran out of a burning building to save someone’s life?
Miranda Rae Mayo
It is our goal to provide full public access to as many files as we possibly can.
It’s true, some senior Hungarian writers are not known for their laughter. There is a strong Germanic influence – an attitude that if it’s enjoyable it can’t possibly be literature.
There’s no way Daniel Bryan can beat me in a Royal Rumble match. It’s ridiculous. He’s nowhere near as heavy as me; he doesn’t have a fraction of the strength I have. There are a lot of ways that Daniel Bryan can possibly beat me.
The first big break was winning a scholarship to go to Cambridge University. I was very lucky, because my parents couldn’t have afforded a university education for me. Without a scholarship I couldn’t possibly have gone.
Is education possibly a process of trading awareness for things of lesser worth? The goose who trades his is soon a pile of feathers.
You have to have as many defences in place as you possibly can. But even then of course – and it’s important to stress this – you cannot guarantee being able to prevent every attack or every kind of attack.
Not only did God deliver me from the bondage of alcoholism, he also blessed my family financially because of my commitment to honor what he had done for me and for not doing what I believed could possibly be destructive to others.
The thing is, horror is a big part of ‘Sherlock Holmes.’ Doyle also wrote a lot of great horror stories, so there’s a lot more horror in ‘Holmes’ that people possibly think of. There’s a lot of curses and mysticism and real scares.
The fact that my mother’s life was cut short is something that pushes me to always move forward and live the best life I possibly can. In a way, I feel like I can take her along with me through every experience, and in that sense, her beautiful energy and spirit will live on.
Rock is ironic in that, up to a certain point, you can get better and better at it if you don’t mind possibly looking more and more ridiculous.
Start a part-time business and make as many mistakes as you possibly can while you still have your daytime job.
People live in their part of the Union, and if they don’t travel a lot, then there is a tendency to believe that the other parts of America couldn’t possibly be as American as their part. You can see it in the way people in the South scrunch up their faces when they hear words like ‘New York,’ ‘Chicago,’ and ‘challah.’
W. Kamau Bell
Here’s my theory: If a person gets worldwide fame at a young age, they’re emotionally frozen at that moment. For me, that’s 15 to 18, so you find yourself in your mid-20s being a glorified 15-year-old. What could possibly go wrong?
A novel quite possibly won’t be good and, even more possibly, will have not-good parts, but at least it won’t shape-shift on you; at least you can say that you’re halfway through and know that this maps onto some clear, visualizable chunk of narrative.
I have been called many things in my life, but if there has been but one constant, one barb, one arrow flung my way time after time, it is the accusation that I am, in essence, nothing more than an escapist. Apparently this is bad, suspect, possibly even un-American.
J. Maarten Troost
Above all else, look around to employ the best talent you possibly can.
In a memoir, I think, the contract implies a certain degree of truth. I think you have to be as true to your memory and your experience as you possibly can.
If there was no Black Sabbath, I could still possibly be a morning newspaper delivery boy. No fun.
What most people don’t understand is that UFOs are on a cosmic tourist route. That’s why they’re always seen in Arizona, Scotland, and New Mexico. Another thing to consider is that all three of those destinations are good places to play golf. So there’s possibly some connection between aliens and golf.
I like to write about love and love lost because I feel like there are so many different subcategories of emotions that you can possibly delve into.
I know that to be a good player, you have to stay healthy, and you have to be as athletic as you can possibly be.
No one can possibly know what is about to happen: it is happening, each time, for the first time, for the only time.
I’m not going on a crusade but I’m proud of who I am. I feel I have achieved everything I could ever possibly have hoped to achieve out of rugby and I did it being gay. I want to send a positive message to other gay people that they can do it, too.
As a filmmaker, you have to understand the essence of the book and tell the story you want to see on the screen, and hopefully please yourself – because you can’t possibly please everyone.
I don’t care whether people like me or dislike me. I’m not on earth to win a popularity contest. I’m here to be the best human being I possibly can be.
I have God, Jesus Christ: I’m Christian. I try to stay as grounded as I possibly can. And I have my parents that help me and my friends that are really great accountability partners to me.
I used to comfort myself when I became an actor that it was a useful job, entertaining people. And it was important to do it as well as you possibly can.
Every week, I heave open a supermarket skip and find therein a more exotic shopping list of items than I could possibly have invented – Belgian chocolates, ripe bananas, almond croissants, stone-ground raisin bread – often so much it would have fed a hundred people.
Having a child is a lifetime commitment, the biggest one you can possibly make.
To be a gluten-free vegan is, like, the most difficult thing you can possibly be.
I would like to do something modern and possibly funny.
I actively avoided responsibility for as long as I possibly could.
I met with several public company CEOs to learn about their experiences of going public and listened to as many earnings calls as I possibly could.
I accept the dying process. I would just like to be as healthy as I possibly can at each step and phase along the way.
I did feel when my mother died if anyone was going to haunt me it would be her. And she hasn’t, so I think it is possibly the end.
The Internet carries the flag of being subversive and possibly rebellious and chaotic, nihilistic.
At this point we’ve answered about every question you could possibly imagine about Deep Space Nine, so we do this thing called Theatrical Jazz, where we do a show of bits and pieces of things from plays and literature, poetry… stuff that we like. It’s fun.
Virgin Galactic, which will be operating SpaceShipTwo, will be only one of several spacelines. The competitors for Virgin include the Russians, Bezos’s Blue Origin, and possibly Rocketplane Kistler. And likely a couple of others who are smart enough not to tell people what they are doing!
I do believe that people hire immigrants, legal and illegal immigrants, to do certain jobs that maybe possibly could go to American citizens, and that’s unfortunate. If they’re here legally, I think it’s OK. If they’re here illegally, then they ought not be taking jobs from American citizens.
The poem ‘What Teachers Make’ is not without its detractors. This one person wrote to me and said: ‘Gee, Mr. Mali. You don’t possibly have a teacher-God complex, do you?’ And that was the first time I’d ever heard of that expression. So, yeah, I’m sure I have a teacher-God complex.
I don’t think that you can possibly embrace the kind of joy which one who has worked with plants and plant structures such as I have over a period of nearly 40 years, how wonderful the plant laboratory seems.
If you look at my career… I couldn’t possibly have chosen those subjects if I was thinking, ‘That’s a great commercial idea.’ I’m not aware of a great musical where someone has done that.
Andrew Lloyd Webber
What could an unsanctified man do in Heaven, if by any chance he got there? Let that question be fairly looked in the face and fairly answered. No man can possibly be happy in a place where he is not in his element and where all around him is not congenial to his tastes, habits and character.
J. C. Ryle
The public health ramifications of our scandalous open borders are possibly even more dangerous and far-reaching than the economic and political consequences.
Comedy is drama. I think that if your characters are feeling something that is very real, then they have to respond in a way that feels real to them, and some situations, the only response you could possibly have is to respond in a way that’s so extreme that people are going to laugh.
Jason Robert Brown
Whenever I write, I write what I find to be the way people are. I never use any symbolism at all, but if you write as true to life as you possibly can, people will see symbolism. They’ll all see different symbolism, but they’re apt to because you can see it in life.
