And yet there are certain concerns that stay constant.

- Alanis Morissette

Leading Hospitals

The royal family's existence is a constant reminder of the hollowness of John Major's rhetoric, and idiotic statements by its leading members a constant boost to the republican cause. They're fine opening hospitals. It's when they open their mouths they get into trouble.

Death Been

Voice Been

I just think that when you've been singing for 30 years, which I have been, you just want to find different things you can do with your voice. It's a constant journey. It's not like any one album that you make is who you are. It just reflects that particular day.

- Alison Moyet

- Amanda Schull

Through Very

Happiness is not always through success. Equally, the constant pursuit of success is sure unhappiness. But we have to find the balance. My own thoughts are that parenting is very personal.

- Amy Chua

Confused Evolving

Like many confused and evolving humans, I live in constant danger of transformation.

- Amy Gerstler

Explain Through

I have two cousins with juvenile diabetes. They both contracted the disease before the age of 5, and it was so heartbreaking watching them go through daily blood tests and injections. It is such a difficult disease to live with and requires constant attention; a tough thing to explain to a child.

Young Very

I read a lot, very passionately, from the time I was very young, but it was a constant battle; my mother would more or less let me be, but with my father, I was always searching for a place where he wouldn't find me.

Kid Caught

As a little kid in the late 1960s, I was afraid of the world. Even if I didn't get caught in the draft that was sending American teenagers to Vietnam, there was always the possibility of a Soviet nuclear attack. I made constant escape plans and imagined a life going from port to port.

- Andrew Solomon

Ring Big

Boxers risk a lot in the ring. That's one of the things that attracts me to it. You want to see a knockout but I also really don't want to see people get hurt. It's this constant dilemma when I'm watching boxing. The only times I get nervous is watching a really big fight or when my brother is playing. I get to the stage where I'm actually shaking.

Education Other

There are 45 million children in Africa who are not in school.

- Ann Cotton

Democrats Actual

The Democrats have no actual policy proposals of their own unless constant carping counts as a policy.

- Ann Coulter

Quick Movie

Press junkets are incredibly annoying. You sit in a chair for three to six hours and have different journalists shuttle in for three minutes at a time, asking cheesy movie questions to get a quick sound bite - and that's their only objective. You can't really move or eat. You're just stuck there. It's pressure, constant pressure.

- Annabella Sciorra

Devil While

Idleness is a constant sin, and labor is a duty. Idleness is the devil's home for temptation and for unprofitable, distracting musings; while labor profit others and ourselves.

- Anne Baxter

Goal Like

My life's goal is not to write books; my life's goal is to know God better today. The neat thing about a goal like that is you can achieve it. Faith is constant; it's a relationship.

- Anne Graham Lotz

Woman Gift

Age has given me the gift of me; it just gave me what I was always longing for, which was to get to be the woman I've already dreamt of being. Which is somebody who can do rest and do hard work and be a really constant companion, a constant, tender-hearted wife to myself.

Other I Write

I'm not entirely sure why I write about family, but I do know that it hasn't stopped interesting me.

- Antonya Nelson

Me Goes

Gospel goes with me wherever I go. Gospel is a constant with me.

- Aretha Franklin

As an actor, your life is constant ups and downs. My friends and I joke that when a job ends and nothing is lined up, you have nothing to do for the rest of your life. You just ride that wave.

- Ari Graynor

Financial Flight

Obsession with conventional ideas of 'success' can be harmful enough, but compound that stress with relationships, family, financial woes and health concerns, and you find yourself in a constant state of fight or flight. This causes people to be more reactionary, which further perpetuates the cycle of stress.

- Ariel Garten

Always Seemed

It always seemed to be a constant that my parents were political.

- Arjun Kapoor

Voice Mail

We think we're saving time with microwaves, cell phones, beepers, computers and voice mail, but often these things help us create the illusion of getting somewhere - and they foster a chain of constant activity. We're really just squeezing extra activity into every minute that we gain.

I'm so proud to be an Army brat, but it was not an easy life. Moving around so much, skating was that one constant thing I had to hold on to.

- Ashley Wagner

Only Developing

Leapfrog innovation - consistent, constant, ridiculous leapfrog innovation - only happens within a dictatorship. Any time you try to do something really innovative, most people aren't going to understand it until after they experience it. So when you're developing in innovation, you have to be a dictator.

- Ashton Kutcher

Truth Her

The greatest friend of truth is Time, her greatest enemy is Prejudice, and her constant companion is Humility.

Very Elder

Because of the earlier loss of the two elder siblings, my brother and I lived a very pampered and protected life. Nursemaids kept constant watch. With my parents busy at dinner parties and social events, we only met them as if for a daily royal audience.

- Charles K. Kao

Values Other

Clashes of values and the struggle for primacy constitute a constant in human history that accounts for that other constant - conflict and war.

You can never get to a place of comfort in this business. As soon as you hit that little cushy spot, somebody's gonna kick you out. So I have a constant need to do it better.

- Charlize Theron

Very Had

But one thing that's constant is we've always appreciated fans. They put us on the map and they keep us on the map. I always put myself in their position. If I loved someone and had their posters all over my wall and met them and they were rude it would be very hurtful.

- Cheryl James

Myself How

Drawing was a constant in how I expressed myself.

- Chris Renaud

American Before

I grew up in the '70s and '80s, at a time that I'd argue was the absolute golden age of American popular culture. Because not only did we have all of the fantastic new stuff in print and on screens, but we had a constant supply of everything that came before, as well.

- Chris Roberson

Believe My Life

I get bored if I do the same thing. The only constant that I have in my life is that I start whatever I do with my Total Gym, because I believe it helps keep me from getting injured.

- Christie Brinkley

My Life Start

The only constant that I have in my life is that I start whatever I do with my Total Gym, because I believe it helps keep me from getting injured.

- Christie Brinkley

Believe Your

It is setting goals and trying to be a business person, but at the same time not losing sight of who you are writing songs for and what your goals are as a songwriter. So believe me, if you think I've got it down I don't it is a constant struggle.

Relationships

Relationships are a constant negotiation and balance.

- Claire Danes

Like Them

Most of us women like men, you know; it's just that we find them a constant disappointment.

There is no moment where you can rest and think: 'Wonderful, I have that job now. I'm going to spend five years here.' There's a constant judgment on your work that's very strongly related to what you are.

- Clemence Poesy

Some Based

A potentially useful property of forecasts based on cointegration is that when extended some way ahead, the forecasts of the two series will form a constant ratio, as is expected by some asymptotic economic theory.

- Clive Granger

Deal Very

Very often when you see families it's all perfect and neat, and parenting isn't like that. You do have constant negotiations. Things are ever developing and ever changing, and you constantly have to evaluate how you deal with your kids.

- Clive Owen

Problem Actor

The actor has a constant problem of personal identity.

- Cyril Cusack

Important May

Constant attention by a good nurse may be just as important as a major operation by a surgeon.

- Dag Hammarskjold

Perfect Bad

A constant stream of 'free' money is a perfect way to keep an inefficient or simply bad government in power. As aid flows in, there is nothing more for the government to do - it doesn't need to raise taxes, and as long as it pays the army, it doesn't have to take account of its disgruntled citizens.

- Dambisa Moyo

Music Mayhem

Our house is a constant mayhem of music, noise, socializing and business. It vibrates life, as a house should.

Rain New

I moved to New Zealand from Winnipeg when I was almost five. I hated it. It was to a city in the south of New Zealand called Invercargill and there was constant rain. There was a depressing sensation in the air.

- Daniel Gillies

Guidance

Constant, gentle pressure is my preferred technique for leadership, guidance, and coaching.

- Danny Meyer

Learning Weeks

Sailing is the closest I can get to nature - it's adrenaline, fear, a constant challenge and learning experience, an adventure into the unknown. And of course there is nothing better than wearing the same T-shirt for days and not brushing my hair for weeks.

- Daria Werbowy

Career Blank

Constant rejection. No security. Career paths being dictated by freelance reviewers. And of course, the terror of the writing desk, of the blank page. Why is it so hard for our non-writer friends to understand this - that it's a job?

- Darin Strauss

Politics Perfect

I have an ethics background. It doesn't mean you're perfect. But I tried to set an entirely different bar for politics in D.C. that's based on ethics and first principles and political philosophy, and not this constant bickering of, 'Are you Right or Left?'

- Dave Brat

Door Feel

Obedience opens the door to the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. And the spiritual gifts and abilities activated by the power of the Holy Ghost enable us to avoid deception - and to see, to feel, to know, to understand, and to remember things as they really are.

- David A. Bednar
