- Alan Lightman

Been Foods

There's cleanliness to how I eat now. I'm much more in tune with my body, so now that I'm so in tune based on having become a semivegan, I can tell what foods affect energy levels. I can tell when I've been eating particularly high nutrient foods or I can tell when my glycemic levels are all over the place.

- Alanis Morissette

I've actually suffered from allergies my entire life. My mom had allergies, so I was aware of what an issue they can be. Many people allow their allergies to affect their lives.

- Alison Sweeney

I Think Before

I think music can really affect people's emotions and, when I am about to get into a race car, I definitely listen to music with a good beat - that's when you've got the adrenalin pumping. And the time before you go into a race weekend, you have a lot of emotion and adrenalin, and a lot of focus.

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.

- Amy Grant

Explain Forced

ACT UP was trying to explain to Americans that AIDS could affect all of us: that health care that ended once your disease was expensive could affect more than gay men with HIV or AIDS.

Lifetime Had

When the Second World War finished, I was 23, and already I had seen enough horror to last me a lifetime. I'd seen dreadful, dreadful things, without saying a word. So seeing horror depicted on film doesn't affect me much.

This stand wasn't because I feel like I'm being put down in any kind of way.

So I'm in the position where I can do that, and I'm going to do that for people that can't.

Your Out

When we do an investment, we always ask, 'Can we affect the outcome? When buying a company, can we have an impact?' That's a different style of investing than a passive investor in the stock market.

- Dan Gilbert

Been Very

Connections with other people affect not only the quality of our lives but also our survival.

- Dean Ornish

Reason Other

Because the biological mechanisms that affect our health and well-being are so dynamic, when people change their diet and lifestyle, they usually feel so much better, so quickly; it reframes the reason for changing from fear of dying to joy of living. Also, the support that patients give each other is a powerful motivator.

- Dean Ornish

Study Other

I'm a linguist. I study how people talk to each other and how the ways we talk affect our relationships.

- Deborah Tannen

University

As a sociolinguist, I want to know how cultural differences affect the ways people talk and listen. My research method, inspired by the work of Robin Lakoff and John Gumperz of the University of California at Berkeley, is sociolinguistic microanalysis.

- Deborah Tannen

- John Cleese

Direct Interacting

I enjoy all forms of writing, but playwrighting is what made me what I am. Not only working with the ghosts of Chekhov and Ibsen and Shakespeare, but what it is to be a playwright, to be interacting with human beings in the live theater and affect people on such a direct, emotional level.

- John Logan

Defence Charities

If you look at things that really affect people's lives - sport, the arts, charities - they were always at the back of the queue for government money - health, social security, defence, pensions were all way ahead. And each of those areas - sports, the arts, the lottery - got relatively petty cash from the government.

Artists Out

Artists need support, time and money to develop their ideas, and if people rip stuff off, you don't have to be that brilliant to figure out that you're ultimately going to affect the end product.

- John Redwood

Fuller Referring

A chief justice's authority is really quite limited, and the dynamic among all the justices is going to affect whether he can accomplish much or not. There is this convention of referring to the Taney Court, the Marshall Court, the Fuller Court, but a chief justice has the same vote that everyone else has.

- John Roberts

Want Critics

Critics should be to actors what ornithologists are to birds: they can write all they want, but it shouldn't affect them.

- John Simm

String Vary

Any object, whether animate or inanimate, will have a size. Airplanes, boats, or musical string instruments vary in size just like animals and plants, and in all cases, their size and their material construction are totally different matters even though they affect one another.

- John Tyler Bonner

Leader Being

The decisions you make affect a lot of people. You have investors, employees, and customers who all rely on you. Being a leader is a 24-hour-a-day job.

Shaped Seller

Facebook draws from the public and public-interest sphere, a simultaneously bold and modest step towards acknowledging that our new networked technologies deeply affect our lives in ways not always captured or best shaped by the typical template of consumer and seller.

- Jonathan Zittrain

Individual Bring

How do you make RoboCop? How do you slowly bring a guy to be a robot? How do you actually take humanity out of someone and how do you program a brain, so to speak, and how does that affect an individual?

- Jose Padilha

I Think Other

Cynicism is kind of like folding your arms and stepping back and commenting on things, like the old guys in 'The Muppets,' just throwing out comments all the time, whereas there are other people on the ground really trying to affect things and improve their lives and the lives of other people. I think it's noble and I think it's cool.

- Josh Radnor

Past Everyone

Everyone has a past, but I try not to let that affect the way I see them; I want to get to know who they are today.

- Jurnee Smollett

Young Careful

I have a fear of labels. If someone labels me, I have to respond - do I acknowledge it, reject it, deny it, live up to it, and defy it? Labels can affect your ability to be yourself. If you're not careful, like I wasn't when I was young, that can take a toll on you. You find yourself conforming to everyone else's ideas of who you are.

- B. D. Wong

Probability Act

The consequences of an act affect the probability of its occurring again.

- B. F. Skinner

Little Things Minds

Little things affect little minds.

- Benjamin Disraeli

Cut Poor Countries

I don't see why OPEC countries should continue to cut production just to keep the price of oil high. This will not affect the industrial countries alone, it will also hit poor countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Who will look after them?

- Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani

Revelation Whole

Unlike the interference of ordinary interest, power, or prejudice, which touches philosophy only at its outskirts and becomes at most a matter for philosophical tactics, the claim of revelation to the highest truth touches philosophy at its core and must affect its whole strategy.

- Hans Jonas

Helping Harry

Toffee Crisp was my downfall. I once ate five at a sitting. Do you really need that third helping, Harry? My parents didn't overfeed me, nor did they make an issue of it. That's when things go wrong. It doesn't have to be a problem for children to be fat, but it does affect you: you aren't as happy in that skin.

- Harry Melling

Questions Dwell

If a candidate for president said he believed that space aliens dwell among us, would that affect your willingness to vote for him? Personally, I might not disqualify him out of hand; one out of three Americans believe we have had Visitors and, hey, who knows? But I would certainly want to ask a few questions.

- Bill Keller

Other Neighborhoods

Communities and neighborhoods are affected. Idling trains, traffic backups, grade crossing accidents and other safety issues all affect the quality of life in our neighborhoods.

- Bill Lipinski

Politics Thought

My concern is to keep religion and the state separated. I don't think that religion and politics go together. When you see political decisions colored by religion, decisions that affect us all... I thought: 'I do not want to go back to medieval times.'

- Bjorn Ulvaeus

About Them

People just wanna talk. They wanna create negative things about you and your life and make up things. You can't let them affect you!

- Blake Lively

It's never happened in history that every region in the world could affect every other region simultaneously. The Roman empire and the Chinese empire didn't know much about each other and had no means of interacting. Now we have every continent able to reach every other.

- Henry Kissinger

Voice Bad

Nothing can affect my voice, it's so bad.

- Brendan Dooling

My Life Voice

For many years when I was younger, I let negative things that people said about me affect my life. What I've learned is that it's really important to find the right support network, focus on the positive things in your life and quiet that negative voice in your head.

- Brittany Snow

Caught Other

Your brain sends out vibrations all the time, and your thoughts affect your life and other people's. They pick up these thoughts and get changed by them. That's why, say, a pacifist gets caught up in a riot situation. It's a field of vibrations - you can 'feel' someone else's thoughts when close to them.

- Bruce Lipton

Natural Other

I have a natural right to do whatever I want with my body... as long as it doesn't affect anybody else or any other property.

- Jack Kevorkian

Best About

The best kids are going to become the best. But the best thing about it is that you're going to learn lessons in playing those sports about winning and losing and teamwork and teammates and arguments and everything else that are going to affect you positively for the rest of your life.

- Carl Lewis

Singing Through

What comprises good performance? The ability through singing or playing to make the ear conscious of the true content and affect of a composition.

Some Very

It's very hard not to let fame affect you because you are continually being told how good you are. After a while you begin to think there must be some truth in it because all those people can't be wrong.

- Jack Wild

Like Very

It's very, very hard to affect culture. And you can get surprised thinking you're farther down the path of change than you really are because, frankly, most of us like the way things are.

- Carol Bartz

Best About

The Olympics was always my be-all and end-all, so when I won, it was the best feeling in the world. But I didn't realise how much it would affect me mentally. All that pressure. I was only 19; I still didn't know everything about taekwondo, I wasn't experienced. I just did amazing on that day and won.

- Jade Jones

Me Religions

People and their religions don't affect me.

- Cat Power

Predict Rather

But I'd rather not predict. I'd rather affect.

- James Lankford

Future Own

Taking control of your own creation, you can ultimately affect your future.

- Dee Wallace

Everybody Very

It's just us trying to start a movement where everybody passes on a bit of cooking knowledge. We estimate that one person can potentially affect 180 others very quickly so we're just trying to spread the word.

- Jamie Oliver

Game Saturday

After a Saturday game, we're in on a Sunday to cool down and make sure we're fully back at it again. But it doesn't really affect things too much. It's basically like you've had a game on the Saturday, and then you're in the cup on a Tuesday.

- Jamie Vardy

Music Circumstances

Playing music is not really susceptible to theory much. Circumstances affect it so much.

- Derek Bailey

Move Within

For me, you've got to start from within. The things you eat directly affect the way you feel and the way you move.

- Derek Hough

Every Day About

We don't know anything about racism. We've never experienced it. If words can make a difference in your life for seven minutes, how would it affect you if you heard this every day of your life?

- Jane Elliott

Everybody Gonna

I know I'm not gonna please everybody when I make a record. I don't let that affect any of my decisions.

- Jason Aldean

Play Everybody

Everybody gets all worked up about trash talk but it is what it is - it's talk... You ask any player, honestly, if trash talk's gonna affect how hard they play, because if a little trash talk affects how hard they can play, it just lets us know that they were holding back or weren't playing harder or as hard as they could.

- Jason Babin

Always Here

All your acts affect all the people, people that you don't even know. So we have to live with responsibility. We have to live knowing that we're not the only ones here and you're affecting somebody else always.

- Diego Luna

Ways Out

I would not be at all surprised to find out... that the dimensions of buildings affect us in ways we don't guess.

- Doris Lessing

Superhero One Day

'Plutona' is the story of five kids who find the body of the world's greatest superhero in the woods after school one day. It's about how this discovery, and the decisions they make, affect them as a group and individually.

Perspective Very

It's very easy to make certain decisions that affect your life that you have no perspective on.
