Week Before

Before Mint.com, I was a long-time user of 'Microsoft Money' and Intuit's 'Quicken.' Both were powerful tools, loaded with features and functionality around taxes, investment, budgeting - too feature-laden, in fact. They took hours to set up, forever to learn, and an hour a week to maintain.

- Aaron Patzer

Heat I Think

I think there is a real misconception about Indian food being super spicy. And I know that's because when you go into an Indian restaurant, it is pretty spicy. But it doesn't have to be. In fact, my husband can't handle a lot of heat. I've had to temper my cooking so that he can eat with me.

- Aarti Sequeira

- Abel Ferrara

Separate Some

I don't think your personal life has anything to do with your professional life. They are separate things. Whatever is happening at home shouldn't be carried to work.

Other Committed

The fact is, funnily enough, that the people who seem to be most committed to causes also seem to be least invested in anyone actually talking to each other.

- Ad Reinhardt

I Think Date

A lot of my emotional issues come from dealing with the opposite sex. I've come to terms with the fact that I'll be retired before I can finally enter into a healthy relationship.

- Adam Levine

Dancing Surely

Vinyl is democratic, as surely as the iPod is fascist. Vinyl is representational: It has a face. Two faces, in fact, to represent the dualism of human nature. Vinyl occupies physical space honestly, proud as a fat woman dancing.

- Adam Mansbach

Rule Then

If you're calling yourself a maverick and you're not Dirk Nowitzki, then you are probably not one. In fact, this rule applies to anyone declaring themselves a 'God-fearing Christian' or a 'Man of the people.'

About Shakes

I knew what I was getting into: 72-ounce steaks, shakes by the quart, atomic wings. When I landed 'Man v. Food' in 2008, I accepted the fact that my weight would fluctuate. But instead of stressing about the scale, I made my long-term health a primary concern.

- Adam Richman

Doing Other

Feet British Museum

The fact is that the British Museum had a complete specimen of a dodo in their collection up until the 18th century - it was actually mummified, skin and all - but in a fit of space-saving zeal, they actually cut off the head and they cut off the feet and they burned the rest in a bonfire.

- Adam Savage

Toys Built

- Adam Schiff

Your Conjunction

I have this Waterpik that shoots water between your teeth. It's great. You do that along with flossing, and you know for a fact you've cleaned your mouth as much as humanly possible. It's like going to the dentist every night in your bathroom. I don't know if it's a floss replacement, but in conjunction with flossing, it's great.

- Adam Scott

New Taylor

Whereas Books of Wonder excels with children's literature, McNally Jackson is where I go for my adult new releases, and no, it has nothing to do with the fact that Taylor Swift shops there, too.

- Adam Silvera

Away Use

My weight is this permanent topic that just doesn't fade away. Most days, I am fine with people talking about it. That doesn't bother me as much as how people use the fact to promote their own ventures.

Sex Born

The fact that a baby can be born today and condemned to a life of hardship, struggle, and discrimination simply because of sex is enraging.

Always Very

We always reference kids but very rarely ask their opinion. Our inexperience might be what gives us the ability to teach our elders something, due to the fact that we are not jaded or cynical.

- Adora Svitak

Cows Facebook

None of my friends don't have Facebook accounts. Op-eds and studies can highlight our decreased enthusiasm for Facebook 'til the cows come home, but it doesn't change the fact that we are chained to the beast. Voluntarily, of course.

- Adora Svitak

Inside In Fact

A locked-room problem lies at the heart of my new novel, 'In The Morning I'll Be Gone,' in which an RUC detective has to find out whether a publican's daughter who fell off a table in a bar that was locked from the inside was in fact murdered.

- Adrian McKinty

Own Reader

As a reader, when the writer gets sentimental, you drift, because there's something fishy going on there. You recognize a moment that's largely about the writer and the writer's own need to believe in something that might not in fact exist. As a reader, you think, 'Where did the story go? Where did the person I'm reading about go?'

- Adrian Nicole LeBlanc

Black Hop

You have to look at the fact that Hip Hop is under attack. It's not just Hip Hop but Black people, Latino people and all people are under attack for different things.

Part Occupation

It is a fact that all women contribute more to marriage than men; for the most part they have to change their place of living, their method of work, a great many women today changing their occupation entirely on marriage; and they must even change their name.

- Agnes Macphail

Mind Very

The fact is I'm choosy, but mainly about a man's character. He has to be interesting, funny and clever. I don't even mind if he's not very good-looking.

- Agyness Deyn

Screen TV

So-called reality TV, which dominates British channels, is destroying what made it cherishable to me and lots of others in the first place. I loved Alan Clarke, Ken Loach and Alan Bleasdale's work. In fact the first TV dramas I ever saw were 'Screen Twos' produced by David Thompson, who also produced a lot of Alan Clarke.

- Aidan Gillen

Studio Some

You should learn to be happy with what you have. Besides, the fact that I'm not a huge star has allowed me to pick and choose the roles I want to do, not the ones some person sitting in a studio office thinks I should do.

- Aidan Quinn

Role Which

I know for a fact that if there's a role which I am suited for, I'll be signed on. I'll never go begging.

- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

The Only Thing

Filmmaking, I often like to say, is like Russian roulette. You never know what you'll get. The only thing you can do is find solace in the fact that, irrespective of the film's response, you work hard to make the money you do.

- Ajith Kumar

Love Enjoy

That's my actual payment, the fact that I can actually make something that I actually enjoy and put on repeat, and it's not related to anything else or anyone else's thoughts and ideas, it all came from me; I just love that aspect of it.

Play Better

The fact that we write about it doesn't mean we play better than ordinary players at all.

United Cut

Now the fact that terrorists throughout the world see this as an opportunity to defeat the United States, we have to be - and every Democratic candidate, even those who opposed us going in, now say we just simply can't cut and run.

- Al D'Amato

Reader Owners

Too many people don't protect their smartphones with a password or PIN. I anticipate that Apple's fingerprint reader will in fact make iPhone 5S owners more likely to secure their smartphones.

- Al Franken

Pleasure Scientific

I take no pleasure in the fact that the scientific predictions I've relayed to popular audiences turn out to be true.

- Al Gore

Having Using

Dallas Francisco

It's funny, but when there are dominant teams, there are a number of people who rail about the fact that they're always seeing the Dallas Cowboys or the San Francisco 49ers or the Green Bay either in the playoffs or in the Super Bowl.

- Al Michaels

Woman Guns

I've never cared for guns. In fact, when I did 'Scent of a Woman' I had to learn how to assemble one.

- Al Pacino

Chubby Could

As a kid who grew up chubby, I just marveled at the fact that I could be thin.

- Al Sharpton

Instructions Our

In our system, we leave questions of fact to a jury. But to render a verdict, a jury must know the law. For this, we rely upon jury instructions. Instructions are supposed to translate the law into lay terms that the jury can apply to the facts as they determine them.

- Alafair Burke

Frequently Reader

Just as I know the usual rules of law enforcement, I also know the exceptions and invoke those frequently. I don't feel a need to bog the reader down with an explanation of why the procedures are realistic, as long as I know that there is, in fact, an explanation.

- Alafair Burke

Own About

I've learned to accept the fact that my students are far too busy preparing for their own legal careers to care one bit about the off-campus antics of Professor Burke. I get the impression that my students are vaguely aware of my novels, but are at best mildly curious.

- Alafair Burke

Loved Always

I feel really assured by the fact that the women I have loved I have loved for always.

- Alain Badiou

Race Career

So in fact the only thing you can judge in this sport its the longterm. You can judge a career or a season, but not one race.

- Alain Prost

Call Very

Our milk chocolate is very chocolaty. In fact, we don't call it milk chocolate - we call it milky chocolate.

- Alain Ducasse

Climb Very

In fact, it will be very easy to climb the building because of its shape and architecture.

- Alain Robert

Other Almost

What I can't completely understand is most other people's fascination with what the famous among us do with their lips and the rest of their bodies. Why do ordinary people become the target of this curiosity simply by virtue of the fact that other people recognise their names and faces but know almost nothing else about them?

- Alan Alda

Scientist About

If two scientists are giving their papers at a symposium, and one of them is just naturally better at talking to the public or talking to a group of people, that scientist is liable to get more attention - in fact, I'm told that they do get more attention - than the one who's a little more stiff about it. Well, that's not good for science.

- Alan Alda

Me Still

I don't know what I'm proudest of. The fact that my kids still talk to me.

- Alan Arkin

Resurgence Vibrant

In fact, even the perception of a resurgence in crime can be enough to paralyze business momentum and destroy the sense of security that a vibrant and progressive city requires.

Career Everybody

The only thing that was economic, I might say, about my music career, aside from the fact that I did everybody's tax returns in the band, was the decision I made to leave the music business on economic grounds.

- Alan Greenspan

About Passage

For me, consciousness is the most interesting unsolved problem of science, and, in fact, we may never know what it is about a particular arrangement of neurons that gives rise to consciousness. Our consciousness, like the air we breathe or like the passage of time, is central to our existence as intelligent beings.

- Alan Lightman

Quantum Mechanics

Typically in science, individual scientists make up their minds about scientific fact or theory one at a time. We don't take votes. We just don't vote on quantum mechanics, the theory of relativity, why the sky is blue, or anything else.

- Alan Stern

Small Half

Pluto is still active four and a half billion years into its history. It was expected that small planets like Pluto would cool off long ago and not still be showing geological activity. Pluto is, in fact, showing numerous examples of geological activity on a massive scale across the planet.

- Alan Stern

Celebrity Some

About 100 things that your kid will do that will surprise you and break your heart and it will be a combination of fact based therapy, medically advised kinds of passages accompanied by celebrity anecdotes and just some funny stuff to lighten the load.

Cold Not Interested

We are not interested in the fact that the brain has the consistency of cold porridge.

- Alan Turing

Mind Rather

At the end of the day, I know that I would rather be alone and occasionally lonely and unhappy than in a miserable marriage and lonely and unhappy all the time. I don't mind being single. In fact, I like it.

- Alana Stewart

Mind Single

I don't mind being single. In fact, I like it.

- Alana Stewart

Big Shut

The big, defining feature of Palmares Tres government is its system of summer kings. The idea is that women 'Aunties' rule, led by a queen with a term limit of 10 years. Men aren't entirely shut out from this system - in fact, they have one of the most important roles in the government - but it's strictly delimited.

- Alaya Dawn Johnson

Suffering Mind

The modern mind is in complete disarray. Knowledge has stretched itself to the point where neither the world nor our intelligence can find any foot-hold. It is a fact that we are suffering from nihilism.

- Albert Camus

Famous Landlady

To be famous, in fact, one has only to kill one's landlady.

- Albert Camus

More Feels

Lying is not only saying what isn't true. It is also, in fact especially, saying more than is true and, in the case of the human heart, saying more than one feels. We all do it, every day, to make life simpler.

- Albert Camus

Read Spoke

And Marx spoke of the fact that socialism will be the kingdom of freedom, where man realizes himself in a way that humankind has never seen before. This was an inspiring body of literature to read.

- Albert Maltz

Suffering Hostages

In fact, this is a blackmail of the terrorists at the expense of the suffering of the hostages.

- Alberto Fujimori

Doing Sustaining

What we are doing in fact is recovering and progressing and sustaining the recovery of our democracy.

- Alberto Fujimori

Movie Ford

If I tried to somehow wrap my head around the fact that Francis Ford Coppola directed my first movie, there's never a slot into which that ever fits in your mind.

- Alden Ehrenreich

Lesson Nothing

The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist in the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything is completely different.

- Aldous Huxley

Limb Film Business

When you lack a certain vitality in the film business, there's no hiding it. It's like you've had your limb chopped off. How do you hide the fact that you're missing an arm?

- Alec Baldwin

Horror Everyone

Part of the public horror of sexual irregularity so-called is due to the fact that everyone knows himself essentially guilty.

- Aleister Crowley

Start Fifty

Time starts out as a notion. But after you turn fifty, time is not a notion anymore but a fact that you start feeling clearly, and in a way, it pushes you to become present in the present.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Very Beneath

We have to be very conscious of the fact that beneath every illness is a prohibition. A prohibition that comes from a superstition.

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

Like Designers

The fact that designers like Lagerfeld, Gaultier, Galliano and Dior could believe in Alek made me believe in myself, too.

- Alek Wek

Like Some

I like to blur the line between fact and fiction, but not to condescend to the reader by enmeshing her/him into some sort of a postmodern coop.

- Aleksandar Hemon

Searching About

The fact that there's people out there that care about what I'm eating for breakfast or care about a tweet that I posted in 2012 that they pulled up because they were searching on my Twitter and things like that - it's hard to understand, because it's just me, and I just think, 'What's so interesting about me?'

- Alessia Cara

Very Sept

The fact that we haven't faced another major terrorist attack on American soil since Sept. 11 is a very significant achievement, and one that's easy to forget - it's the dog that doesn't bark.

- Alex Berenson

Tourist Most

In fact, Tibet is one of the most popular European tourist attraction of asia.

- Alex Chiu

Love More

I look at my books the way parents look at their children. The fact that one becomes more successful than the others doesn't make me love the less successful one any less.

- Alex Haley

I Think Engaged

To feel nervous; to feel threatened and vulnerable and alive and engaged in that sense when interacting with someone you're really attracted to? I think that's wonderful. That's usually the best part. In fact, it's almost always downhill from there.

- Alex Karpovsky

Feel Notes

I like directing myself; I feel like it's one less person to give notes to. There's an efficiency in it. I'm also kind of a control freak. So I like the fact that it gives me more control in the overall picture.

- Alex Karpovsky

Reputation I Think

I think Rush have always had this reputation, particularly to non-fans, of being an ultra-serious and cerebral group when, in fact, the reverse is true. We don't take ourselves seriously at all. Sure, we take our music seriously, but that's altogether different.

- Alex Lifeson

Young In Fact

On 'Glee,' we often tackle the tough topics that young people face - in fact, my recurring character, Wade 'Unique' Adams, is a transgender teenager who finds herself navigating a lot of the same problems many young people face around the globe.

- Alex Newell

Political Socially

Political journalists, socially inept or no, are not nerds. Most of them can't do math, a fact that campaigns and politicians regularly exploit.

- Alex Pareene

Society In Fact

There's no law of physics that says we have to be an unsustainable society - in fact, quite the opposite. The planet's ready to work with us if we're ready to think differently, but we do have to make that jump and start to do things in new ways.

- Alex Steffen

Like TV

I've come to terms with the fact that if you're on TV, lots of people like you and lots of people hate you, and once you're OK with that, you apply it to everything.

- Alexa Chung

World London

London street style is the best in the world. Fact.

- Alexa Chung
