Life More

Idea Very

I tried the paleo diet, which is the caveman diet - lots of meat. And I tried the calorie restriction diet: The idea is that if you eat very, very little - if you're on the verge of starvation, you will live a very long time, whether or not you want to, of course.

- A. J. Jacobs

I'm not a sculptor; I'm a hard-edged model maker. You give me a drawing, you give me a prop to replicate, you give me a crane, scaffolding, parts from 'Star Wars' - especially parts from 'Star Wars' - I can do this stuff all day long. It's exactly how I made my living for 15 years.

City Some

There are some times when you make films and you travel places, and the take that people in the business have is that the worst way to see a city is to shoot there, because you work these long 12, 13 and 14-hour days, and you go home to the hotel, you eat, and you pass out.

Actors are like Swiss Army knives - we're ready to use any lever at any moment. But I learned long ago that, unfortunately, this industry only sees the one thing sticking out that they know us from, and that's the only thing they can imagine.

- Allison Williams

Giving Exhausted

You don't want to keep giving yourself a sugar spike and then crash and get exhausted and need coffee because you shoot for a long time. On set, I eat a lot of peanut butter and apples, things that have actual energy and protein in them to keep me going.

- Andie MacDowell

Live Dead

Graphene is dead; long live graphene.

- Andre Geim

Mother Lot

I did a lot of work with myself over the course of being pregnant and the first few months of being pregnant. It's nice, the pace of being pregnant; it gives you a long time to not just germinate a baby but germinate the mother that you're gonna be.

- Ani DiFranco

Quakers Equivalent

Very Had

Mothers and daughters generally have fairly complex relationships, and ours was made much more so by Mother's illness. She had Parkinson's disease, which was not diagnosed for a long time... All that made me very self-protective, because for one thing, I didn't want to get trapped.

- Alice Munro

Wanted Novelist

I wanted to be a novelist for so long.

- Alice Sebold

Opposition Direct

I'm attracted to things that are in direct opposition to something that I've just done. It's not like I'm trying to make the right chess move. It's more just that personal thing where you get connected to something for so long and then you want to do something that's in opposition to that.

- Anna Kendrick

People Played

I played crying people in corsets for a long time, but I went into acting to be a character actor.

Moment Part

Part of the pleasure of editing 'Vogue,' one that lies in a long tradition of this magazine, is being able to feature those who define the culture at any given moment, who stir things up, whose presence in the world shapes the way it looks and influences the way we see it.

- Anna Wintour

Been Other

Beauty Thought

How long can men thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing the fumes of coal and oil, growing, working, dying, with hardly a thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine-made beauty, the mineral-like quality of life?

- Charles Lindbergh

Faithful Convenience

Too many Christians have a commitment of convenience. They'll stay faithful as long as it's safe and doesn't involve risk, rejection, or criticism. Instead of standing alone in the face of challenge or temptation, they check to see which way their friends are going.

Long Time Pile

Praise is nothing that accumulates. Praise is a sequence, especially if you've toiled for a long time. Praise does not pile up. So in a way, you can't get too much. I don't consider it to be a quantity that you can measure by volume.

- Christoph Waltz

Sense British

There's a melancholy sense of things lost in the shabbier British seaside towns; of comfortable failure and better times long gone.

- Christopher Fowler

Balls Wear

I find this mortifying to admit, but I have one of those balls that helps my posture. They're hard to sit on, so it stops me from sitting too long... I also wear a pair of 3M(TM) PELTOR(TM) Optime(TM) II Ear Muffs. They're the same ones that people wear on the tarmac among the planes - noise blockers.

- Claire Cameron

Will Exist

So long as nuclear weapons continue to exist, so will the temptation to threaten others with overwhelming military force.

Thought Mental

Nobody can make a putt that breaks to the right. It's unnatural. Unless you're left-handed, of course. Standing over a putt that breaks to the right can actually make you dizzy. I've long thought that right-breaking putts are a major contributor to mental and physical ill health.

- Dan Jenkins

Rewarding Evolved

The human brain long ago evolved a mechanism for rewarding us when we encountered new information: a little shot of dopamine in the brain each time we learned something new. Across evolutionary history, compulsively seeking information was adaptive behavior.

- Daniel Levitin

Hang Out

I'll always be grateful for what 'Doctor Who' has given me. I go to quite a few fan conventions. It's lovely to hang out with people you worked with so long ago. And, more than that, it's made me aware of the impact that television can have.

- Daphne Ashbrook

How Been

Sendak's 1963 classic 'Where The Wild Things Are' has long been a favorite of mine because of the creative imagery, fantastic adventures and, most of all, because of how this timeless story shows us that children need to be free to roam, explore and invent in order to understand their place in the world that surrounds them.

- Darell Hammond

Kid Been

I have been making hip-hop since I was a kid growing up in New York in the '80s and '90s. It's always been a hobby of mine - I've been making beats and writing songs for as long or longer than I've been acting.

- Dash Mihok

Offended Crowd

For a long time the people at my shows were sort of the Pantera-tattoo trucker guys, really cool dudes, but I don't know what happened to them. That's the crowd that I like, the ones that don't get so offended just to be offended.

- Dave Attell

Finally Shall

I have withstood the power of convictions a long time; and therefore I fear I shall be finally left of God.

- David Brainerd

Bring Anything

For a long time, it was hard for me to get my work done in Chicago. Silk Road gave me opportunities to do shows like 'Golden Child' - shows that nobody else seemed interested in. And they bring an artistic integrity to the work that matches anything you'll find at a bigger theatre.

- David Henry Hwang

Real Thick

From sixth grade on I was a real Pillsbury doughboy. Overweight, long hair, thick glasses.

- David Pratt

Years About

I'm not surprised about the lack of women on boardrooms. They were only emancipated 200 years ago, and historically, men have dominated. I welcome women as long as they qualify for the job.

- David Tang

Luxuries Our

When we understand the connection between how we live and how long we live, it's easier to make different choices. Instead of viewing the time we spend with friends and family as luxuries, we can see that these relationships are among the most powerful determinants of our well-being and survival.

Mind Got

I don't mind if my skull ends up on a shelf as long as it's got my name on it.

To be on the road, even if you're not that happy, is all right, as long as I'm pourin' me heart into it.

Out Long Time Ago

People spend their careers trying to figure out what makes a hit single. But I learned a long time ago that you can't anticipate what people want, because it's always going to change.

East About

Oh, it's essential. I mean, you have to - if I'm writing about the Middle East, I have to go there, and if possible, stay long enough to get a real feeling for what's going on.

- Joe Sacco

Waves Having

As long as I'm getting waves and having fun, the results tend to take care of themselves.

- Joel Parkinson

Big Out

The music is fun. The big difference performing it live is that we might get a little more heated, not as subdued, we'll stretch things out more. It's how you stay fresh after such a long time in the business.

- John Abercrombie

Infantry Large

General: I attempted to take Williamsport yesterday, but found too large a force of infantry and artillery. After a long fight, I withdrew to this place.

- John Buford

Been About

I've been called a funny person for a long time. I don't know that I know anything about comedic acting.

- John Cho

Songwriters Waited

Younger songwriters will ask me, 'What did you do?' And it's like, 'Well, I worked a day job, and I didn't stake anything. I didn't quit my day job. I didn't have any hopes at all. I just did the thing that I believed in, and I waited a long time.'

- John Darnielle

Use While

Mankind will never win lasting peace so long as men use their full resources only in tasks of war. While we are yet at peace, let us mobilize the potentialities, particularly the moral and spiritual potentialities, which we usually reserve for war.

- John Foster Dulles

Search Had

I saw no African people in the printed and illustrated Sunday school lessons. I began to suspect at this early age that someone had distorted the image of my people. My long search for the true history of African people the world over began.

- John Henrik Clarke

Enjoy Portion

After all, I long to be in America again, nay, if I can go home to return no more to Europe, it seems to me that I shall ever enjoy more peace of mind, and even Physical comfort than I can meet with in any portion of the world beside.

- John James Audubon

Long Time Started

When I started earning money from screen-writing, for a long time my only indulgences were books.

- John Logan

Sometimes Seem

Going on the road for long stretches can seem daunting, and I certainly miss being home sometimes, but the chance to see so many different cities, let alone perform in them, is something I am really grateful for.

- John Mulaney

American Pursuit

Though I have drawn my sword in the present generous struggle for the rights of men, yet I am not in arms as an American, nor am I in pursuit of riches. My fortune is liberal enough, having no wife nor family, and having lived long enough to know that riches cannot ensure happiness.

- John Paul Jones

Holding On Bring

God has ordained that Satan have a long leash with God holding on to the leash because he knows that when we walk in and out of those temptations, struggling with both the physical effects that they bring and the moral effects that they bring, more of God's glory will shine.

- John Piper

Confident Friendly

Justice Rehnquist was friendly and unpretentious. He wore scuffed Hush Puppy shoes. That was my first lesson. Clothes do not make the man. The Justice sported long sideburns and Buddy Holly glasses long after they were fashionable. And he wore loud ties that I am confident were never fashionable.

- John Roberts

Need Going

We're going to need oil and gas and coal for a long time if America wants to keep the lights on.

- John S. Watson

Gluttony Our

Our fear of hypocrisy is forcing us to live in a world where gluttons are fine, so long as they champion gluttony.

- Jonah Goldberg

Speed Slower

I'm a filmmaker, but my working procedures are different. All my basic structuring is done during the filming. You know, how long I keep the shot, the exposure or the speed - slower or faster, etc. That's structuring. And then there is a second stage of structuring that comes later when I begin to put those pieces together.

- Jonas Mekas

Some Atmosphere

It can take a long time for some people to find out how to ground themselves, and film sets are an odd atmosphere to do it in - especially if, like me, you finished school early.

- Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Gone Anybody

I haven't gone home with anybody who tried to pick me up in a long time.

- Jorja Fox

Other Fortunate

I'm fortunate to have success, but it was a long and challenging road, so I try to make that not be the case for other women.

- Joy Mangano

More Some

I have long observed that the act of writing is viewed, by some, as an elite and otherworldly act, all the more so if a person isn't paid for what she writes.

- Joyce Maynard

Line Interacting

I'm not one of those kind of people who does the observational 'Hey, don't you hate it when you're at the grocery store and the line's long and the cash register starts taking too long.' I don't really do that kind of stuff. I'm heavy on persona, and I do a lot of interacting with the audience.

- Judah Friedlander

Work Need

I work as long as I need to work to do what I need to do.

- Judith McKenna

Experience Two

I have worked with Divya Dutta in two National Award-winning Punjabi films. I have known her a long time; she is a fantastic actress. I sent her flowers after I saw 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.' Shabana Ji is, of course, a legendary actress. It was a great experience working with her.

- Juhi Chawla

Years Without

The truth is that for those 86 long years when the Red Sox went without a World Series win, fans were not only in a recession, but trapped in a longstanding, deeply entrenched sports depression.

- Julianna Baggott

Heart Never

The greatest explorer on this earth never takes voyages as long as those of the man who descends to the depth of his heart.

- Julien Green

Next Your

When the painting is hanging on your wall for a long time, you don't notice it. You get tired of it, even if it's a Picasso. When the next generation inherits the painting, they sell it. I don't want to be sold.

- Julio Iglesias

Accomplishments Lived

I have lived long enough both in years and in accomplishments.

- Julius Caesar

Movies Characters

I am fine playing 'Law & Order' and even the 'Jurassic' movies to be straight up, as far as the characters being portrayed there, but I never want to stay in straight-up land too long. I always wanted to do something where the character's world gets to be explored.

- B. D. Wong

Country Serve

So long as I'm Commander-in-Chief, we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known. When you take off the uniform, we will serve you as well as you've served us - because no one who fights for this country should have to fight for a job, or a roof over their head, or the care that they need when they come home.

- Barack Obama

Some Our

We're not a fragile people. We're not a frightful people. Our power doesn't come from some self-declared savior promising that he alone can restore order as long as we do things his way. We don't look to be ruled.

- Barack Obama

People Remained

People only watch my shows for me, and those shows have remained evergreen long after the guests are forgotten.

- Barry Humphries

Anything Is Possible

Anything is possible as long as you have the passion.

- Guy Forget

Trust Our

All I'm saying is, is God the god who we look to for comfort during tragedies? Is he the god who can control all those things, or is he the god that we don't even trust with our daily lives... As long as there's prayer and exams, as long as there's games, there will be prayers.

- Benjamin Watson

Attack Breathe

As long as I breathe, I attack.

- Bernard Hinault
