Nearly

- Aaron Sorkin

Movie

One of the things I liked about the movie 'Minority Report' was they used a lot of futurists as consultants to really try to understand what the world really would be like in 50 years.

- Adena Friedman

Couple

One of the things I've really gotten past in the last couple of years is the idea of being made uncomfortable by the way things appear, rather than how things are. Clearly in this business you have to contend with a lot of that.

- Aimee Mann

Some

But one of the things I learned from improvising is that all of life is an improvisation, whether you like it or not. Some of the greatest scientific discoveries of the 20th century came out of people dropping things.

- Alan Arkin

Love

One of the things I love about wen wu is its encouragement of developing the spiritual and intellectual aspects of the self that are actually more important than the development of the body and the capacity to commit violence - which is how much of Western pop culture defines a man.

- Alex Tizon

Allowed

We basically built a pricing model that surgically identified what people wanted to pay us for and what they didn't want to pay us for. One of the things we figured out early on was that we could create value for people by creating a product that allowed them to design something that they couldn't design without us.

- Alexa Hirschfeld

Point

One of the things I say is from an evolutionary point of view: probably the ideal rich environment for a baby includes more mud, livestock, and relatives than most of us could tolerate nowadays.

- Alison Gopnik

Love Boy

One of the things I say is, 'You want to know what it's like to be a baby? It's like being in love for the first time in Paris after four double espressos.' And boy, you are alive and conscious.

City

One of the things I noticed while I lived in New York City was how different the kids and teens were that grew up there versus, you know, my suburban upbringing. They have this innate resilience and toughness to them, and they're incredibly self-sufficient, usually from a pretty young age.

- Alexandra Bracken

House

A home should be an intimate autobiography of the things that you like. One of the things I'm so keen on expressing is that, if you don't do it for yourself, if you're always seeking affirmation from outside, you'll never have a home. It'll just be a house.

- Alexandra Stoddard

Big Use

When I'm writing a novel, one of the things I do is get big poster boards. They're actually canvases that artists use. And I keep all the characters' names on them. If you write a big novel, there's a lot of characters.

- Alexi Zentner

Used Lot

I always wanted to act, but it was not because of the influence of my family. I just wanted to act since I was four! I used to watch a lot of movies. One of the things that attracted me were the songs picturised on 'Govinda' and Karisma Kapoor, who would dance in the middle of the street!

- Alia Bhatt

Gender

That's all true, but there was something else going on for me as a kid, something about my gender identity that I haven't figured out yet. And that's one of the things I'm hoping to dissect and investigate in this memoir project.

- Alison Bechdel

Could

One of the things I wanted to do with 'The Turn' was write a production of songs that could be stripped down to one or two instruments if you chose to do it.

- Alison Moyet

About

One of the things I like best about 'Biggest Loser' is being around people who are trying to make the right choices. When you feel defeated about your weight and your health, like there's no hope, and you still make the choice to fight for it, to make the change happen no matter what people say or think, that's inspiring to me.

- Alison Sweeney

Very

One of the things I've always liked about my husband is he's very good at lots of stuff. He was an English teacher when I met him. He wrote poetry and played the guitar. As time went on, he decided to go into economics, so he's very analytical and mathematical in addition to his artsy side.

- Ally Condie

Love

'Girls' is one of my favorite shows of all time. One of the things I love about Lena Dunham and Jenji Kohan and Shonda Rhimes is that they're all willing to show complex, amazing women.

Thought

Stories

One of the things I realized... is how few success stories there are in websites or products or businesses that exist primarily for an altruistic purpose.

- Andrew Mason

Feel

One of the things that frequently gets lost in descriptions of depression is that the depressed person often knows that it is a ludicrous condition to feel so disabled by the ordinary business of quotidian life.

- Andrew Solomon

About

The issue is: how do you engage the audience? And one of the things I talk to our communicators about is: The outline is great; the stories are great. But how do you engage them? How do you make it feel like we are on a journey, not you are just up there giving me information.

- Andy Stanley

Shared

There are a lot of writers who just want to do their own thing and avoid the rest of the Marvel Universe. But for me that was one of the things I loved about Marvel: that shared universe. So of course you would run into a mutant in Manhattan. You would run into another hero in Manhattan. For me, I figured why not? Why not have that fun?

- Ann Nocenti

Away

I like talking about comic book process, and one of the things is that I have plans going ahead for years, and the plans constantly get thrown away and shifted. There's a difference between planning and what actually happens in life, and comics have a life of their own.

- Ann Nocenti

Strong

I was raised in a solidly upper-middle class family who had really strong values and excess was not one of the things that my family put up with. And there's something wildy decadent about the young-star lifestyle, and I just don't really see the point.

- Anne Hathaway

Very

One of the things that is very important to me is how I feel about my team. And not just what their jobs are but what they mean to one another.

Cards

- Anne Wojcicki

Want

I want to encourage people. One of the things I do encourage people is that - that Internet is a place where we should share our ideas and be positive, not negative.

- Ansel Elgort

Town

One of the things I can't stand about this town is the back-stabbing. Where I grew up, we're front-stabbers.

- Anthony Scaramucci

Role

One of the things about being a boy, especially growing up without a father, is you really don't have that role model to teach you how to do things.

- Art Alexakis

Big Deal

Well, one of the things a lot of Americans don't know, when Mitt Romney is nominated a few days from now, he will be the most experienced executive to be nominated for the presidency since Dwight Eisenhower in 1952, who had run a university and had run the allied war effort. That's actually a big deal.

- Artur Davis

Play

One of the things that I really enjoyed playing with Ender was how he's constantly struggling between his brother and his sister. It's like he's got two sides to him. And I've always wanted to play a darker character, and in this film and in the novel, Ender has his moments where he isn't a glorified hero.

- Asa Butterfield

Like

I am not a good decision maker; that's one of the things I don't like about myself.

- Charles Soule

Away

I came from being a singer going into jazz. And that's one of the things that polio did for me is it took away my ability to sing with a range because it paralyzed my vocal chords, so that was when I started playing. But I hear the music as if I were singing even when I am playing.

- Charlie Haden

Church

One of the things my mom used to do - I don't know why she chose me, but she chose me out of her six children to take to the African-American church that was in the town that we lived in Springfield, Missouri. And we would go to the church, and we would sit in the back row, and we would listen to all of the spirituals in the hymns.

- Charlie Haden

Nature

One of the things I believe in is a sense of human nature.

Learn Go

- Chris Wedge

Woman

One of the things that drives me crazy as a professional woman is you'll have bought a suit, and you get home and realize you don't have a shirt to wear with it.

- Christine Quinn

Very

One of the things you learn in football is that you're only as good as your last outing. I don't like to reflect on what we've done in the past. I'm not a very good storyteller, for one thing. I'd disappoint you. When it's time, I'll talk about the good old days. But it's a sign of old age, reveling in the past.

- Chuck Noll

Very

Poetry was one of the things that interested me most as I was growing up. I used to write it in my head all the time. I still think the very greatest pleasure in life is to write a poem.

Lesbian

I am many things, but one of the things I am is a lesbian.

- Clare Balding

Women

I don't know why women want any of the things men have when one of the things that women have is men.

I Think

I think that was one of the things that happened, especially in Ireland, that you left in order to improve yourself, and you couldn't write home and tell people, 'Look, I'm really lonely,' because you'd realize how much those letters were going to matter, that you needed to put good news or uplifting news into them.

- Colm Toibin

Made

One of the things I do as a food writer is to take a classic recipe made with meat, look at it a whole lot, and tinker with it according to my taste.

Away

One of the things we found out as we filmed with people who dealt with chimps, and with all animals, and it's really incredible, is their levels of intelligence that we don't recognize right away.

Rehab

One of the things you learn in rehab is that you're responsible for your own actions.

- Dale Archer

My Life

One of the things I did to make myself feel better is that I kicked up my running even more. I knew that I had to stay active, that I had to keep living as if my life was actually going to unfold naturally because when you stop, when you freeze, and you think about it, that's when the demons come and can drag you down.

- Dan Hill

Effort

One of the things I really learned from my first term is the importance of focusing. In that sense, it is a deliberate effort. What I look at with each vote is that priority of whether it's good for the middle class or not.

- Dan Maffei

Very

I have a very good family. I'm very fortunate to have a very good family. I believe very strongly in the family. It's one of the things we have in our platform, is to talk about it.

Some

One of the things I loved about my childhood was that I didn't feel like I lost my innocence too young, like some children these days.

- Danielle de Niese

I Think

I think that's one of the things that has always put me in kind of an odd niche. It's that all of my understanding of orchestral music is via film, not via classical music like it's supposed to be. To me it's the same, it doesn't make any difference.

- Danny Elfman

Horror

One of the things I wanted to do with my own books was bridge the gap between 'Goosebumps' and adult horror.

- Darren Shan

Country

One of the things I most admire about America is they have created a genuine melting pot society, a country of opportunity; you can be of any religion, colour, ethnicity, persuasion and make it to the top of your chosen field. And that's something I admire about America and hope they continue with.

- David Cameron

Actor

I'm analytical as an actor, and one of the things Quentin did was free me from that.

- David Sze

Her Well

Well, one of the things I did was recreate her home in my home.

- Debbie Reynolds

Part

One of the things I'm always reminded of when I'm back on stage is how much you have to be aware of and in control of. There is no tight shot. There is no 'we're only shoulders-up this time.' No, from the top of your head to your pinky toe, you're telegraphing part of the story the entire time you're up there.

- Jim Parsons

Some

That is one of the things about going on tour, that I get to work with some really talented people and it allows me to be able to listen to them as well - and just have fun on stage.

- Joan Armatrading

Fiction

One of the things that writing has taught me is that fiction has a life of its own. Fictional places are sometimes more real than the view from our bedroom window. Fictional people can sometimes become as close to us as our loved ones.

- Joanne Harris

Away

Repetitiveness is one of the things that's most difficult to get away from in genre pictures, because people come specifically to see certain kinds of things but get disappointed if they're presented in the same way. So to try to find a new way to show old stuff is always the challenge.

- Joe Dante

Studio

When you do a writing job for a studio, one of the things you want to do is satisfy the expectations of your employer. That's a little bit different than when you sit down and write something to satisfy yourself, because then you're the employer.

- Joel Coen

Here

Believe it or not, one of the things I try to do around here is try to look for opportunities to work with people across the aisle. I know that's not the common narrative. But the truth is if you want to get anything done, that's an absolute requirement.

- John Cornyn

Fact

I don't like the term 'global warming,' because it's misleading. It implies something that's mainly about temperature, that's gradual, and that's uniform across the planet. And in fact, temperature is only one of the things that's changing.

- John Holdren

Best Our

One of the things that makes our military the best in the world is the certain knowledge of each soldier, sailor, airman, and Marine that they can always count on their comrades should they need help - that they will never be abandoned.

- Jon Kyl

Over

In this business, you have so little control over things, but one of the things you can control is who you work with.

- Jon Tenney

Life Got

Positivity, that's one of the things I try to spread throughout my company and really anyone I come in contact with. Because as you know, life's too short. You got to keep it positive and keep it fun.

- Jose Garces

Been

One of the things I've been taught by Native American elders is the importance of patience, of waiting to do things when the time is right.

- Joseph Bruchac

Things

One of the things that you're not really in control of - apart from everything - is your smell.

- Julian Fellowes

New Like

One of the things I've come to realize is that, like every new technology and like every disruption, broadband has downsides.

- Julius Genachowski

Date

One of the things I noticed is that people really change when they realize their expiration date is coming, and they know what it is. Most of us don't: we just hope we can live as long as we can and do as much good as we can.

- Justin Baldoni

I Think

I once gave a talk at a girls' school and, once I'd finished, 29 out of the 30 girls wanted to be film directors. I think that's where we need to get girls interested in making films. We need to give them the idea that they can, that it's one of the things on their horizon.

- Beeban Kidron

Been How

One of the things that is devastating is I realise I haven't been living a different life than when I was, like, 12. I'm shocked at how reclusive I've been since then. I was unaware of it until recently.

- Gus Van Sant

Love

I find myself enjoying a deeper love than I ever imagined was possible in the form of my daughter and certainly in the union with my wife. It makes everything else, including work, which is one of the things I'm most passionate about, pale by comparison.

- Benjamin Bratt

Figure

One of the things you realize with a lot of high achievers: You have to figure out a way to make things their idea.

- Hank Haney

Thought

One of the things which make any company successful, in particular the Home Depot, was that we understood and catered to the customer. If it didn't sell, it didn't make a difference what we thought or our research told us. They told us if it was successful by buying it or not.

- Bernard Marcus

South

So one of the things that happened with integration in the South is they found that the black teachers were much more educated than the white teachers.

- Bernice Johnson Reagon

Control

One of the things I'm fascinated by as a traveler is watching how different countries control how they let the world encounter them.

- Hanya Yanagihara

Father

I'm glad that's one of the things I chose to do as a man - to be a father to my child.

- Big Boi

Means

I suppose one of the things that interest me about acting is unpicking what makes people tick and why they do what they do and what it means to be human.

- Hattie Morahan

Made

One of the things that made 'American Pie' great was also the sexiness of it.

- Hayden Schlossberg

Like

One of the things I like about acting is that, in a funny way, I come back to myself.

- Bill Murray

Turn Our

One of the things we've always tried to do is help others with our story. Whether it's with the infertility issues, whether it's with the breast cancer, we said we're gonna turn these negatives into positives. And if we can help others by sharing our story, then it's worth it.

- Bill Rancic

Stories

One of the things that I have learned since trying to bring in an interesting story in under 28 pages is that we already agree on great chunks of typical superhero stories.

- Bill Williams

Some Joe

That's one of the things I hope that the book can do, is to restore some dignity to Joe Cinque.

- Helen Garner

Give

One of the things that we hope to do with 'Pitchmen' is to give people an appreciation of what we do.

- Billy Mays

Most

One of the things I enjoy the most is fishing.

- Henry Paulson

TV Dad

One of the things that was probably to Dad's discredit was that he was never a fund-raiser. But he didn't live in an era of TV ads.

- Bob Latta
