Game Ruth

We have an obligation to spread amateur baseball both at home and abroad. Building up the game at all levels - Little League, Babe Ruth Leagues, the colleges - is in our own self-interest. That's where the pool of talent is - and also of fans.

- A. Bartlett Giamatti

Show Tastes

I am sure it is one's duty as a teacher to try to show boys that no opinions, no tastes, no emotions are worth much unless they are one's own. I suffered acutely as a boy from the lack of being shown this.

The way to write is well, and how is your own business.

Freedom Politics

Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one.

Through Correct

It is impossible for me to estimate how many of my early impressions of the world, correct and the opposite, came to me through newspapers. Homicide, adultery, no-hit pitching, and Balkanism were concepts that, left to my own devices, I would have encountered much later in life.

- A. J. Liebling

Carried Armies

The great armies, accumulated to provide security and preserve the peace, carried the nations to war by their own weight.

Soul Celebrity

I was a common man, and I will always remain a common man. No amount of stardom will ever consume my soul. Money comes, money goes. Fame comes, fame goes. I believe every human being is a celebrity in their own right.

Mother Betrayed

I feel betrayed by own mother.

Time Film

A film has its own life and takes its own time.

Play Tops

If we were poor, we didn't know it 'cause I guess you don't miss what you never had. So, you know, we made do with whatever. We used to make our own toys, and we used to play with spinning tops and marbles. A pocket full of marbles, and you were rich - you didn't worry about no money.

- Aaron Neville

I Think Critique

I think as you get older, you realize there's always going to be critics. Critics are going to win every time because they can change their critique based on the stats and their own personal feelings.

- Aaron Rodgers

I Think About

I think as you get older, you realize there's always going to be critics. Critics are going to win every time because they can change their critique based on the stats and their own personal feelings. It's less about proving people wrong, the critics wrong, and it's more about challenging myself to keep this level up.

- Aaron Rodgers

My Own Still

If I do a certain number of ads, I have to do a personal project in between, just for my own sanity. I still consider myself a punk-rock kid.

- Aaron Ruell

Foods About

Instead of going out, I'm trying to encourage people to have a memorable experience in their own home. We call it 'Delicioso Night In.' I invite the people I care about the most. Then, when I get a lot of people together, I like to have finger foods.

- Aaron Sanchez

Education Some

Real education is about genuine understanding and the ability to figure things out on your own; not about making sure every 7th grader has memorized all the facts some bureaucrats have put in the 7th grade curriculum.

- Aaron Swartz

Culture Rooted

In order to be universal, you have to be rooted in your own culture.

Think I Think

Very Dad

I really, really like interior design. I grew up in a really old house outside of Philly that was built in 1821. My mom is really into antiques, and my dad is very mid-century. They're not together anymore, so in the middle of growing up, I, all of the sudden, had two houses that were very different but really well done in each of their own ways.

- Abbi Jacobson

Your Only

The only way to support a revolution is to make your own.

Experience Tend

During events like the World Cup and the Olympics, I tend to get really wrapped up in my own experience to stay focused, but it's like a bubble. I don't see much outside my own perspective.

- Abby Wambach

Play Moved

From a pretty early age, my mother realized that I was a little bit more gifted and talented than my own age group. So, she moved me over to play with the boys' travel soccer team when I was about 11 years old.

- Abby Wambach

I Think About

I think the success of democracy is not really police security; it's the presence of a broad middle class. The stronger the middle class of a people is, the less you have to worry about one group coming in and exploiting the democratic process for its own ends.

- Abdullah II of Jordan

Soul Some

At some point, a flash of sustained clarity reveals the difference between what someone would have you believe is true, and what you know from the depths of your own heart to the peaks of your soul to be true. What happens after that is up to you.

- Aberjhani

Bond New

I hold that while man exists, it is his duty to improve not only his own condition, but to assist in ameliorating mankind.

- Abraham Lincoln

Next Other

Arab leaders worry more about making money from the profits they get from oil and gas that they turn the other way when Lebanon is being destroyed right next to them. Their neighbours are being murdered, but they only make calculations for their own benefit.

- Abu Bakar Bashir

Destiny Cause

You have to take control of your own life, your own destiny, and your own careers. You can't leave everything up to someone else, 'cause then you can look at them and blame them.

- Action Bronson

Very I Write

Penmanship means a lot to me. I don't have cursive penmanship, though. I've created my own penmanship. It's very clear. Everyone can read it. I write things down all day long.

- Action Bronson

Education Needs

It is the local community that needs to own the commitment to education.

- Adam Braun

Love Doing

A lot of guys and people in our society think that chicks just love dudes with money. Chicks love dudes who are successful who happen to have money - do you know what I mean? Chicks are attracted to dudes that are doing their own thing.

- Adam Carolla

Other Before

Amazon is holding its own because the service it provides - offering millions of books and other items quickly and easily from home at any hour of the day or night - is a real one, and one that was impossible before there was an Internet.

- Adam Cohen

Discussion Other

There is such a polarized discussion of economics among people like analysts, columnists, bloggers; often, they end up just saying that views other than their own should not even be discussed. I find that frustrating. There is no intellectual progress without considering lots and lots of different views.

- Adam Davidson

Young Movie

I like the guys who wrote their own stuff and were able to perform it, like Seth Rogen. He popped off so young. When he did 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin,' and he was a co-producer on the movie, I was like, 'Oh my God: that's exactly what I want to do.'

- Adam DeVine

Piano Bass

I own a guitar, a piano, a bass.

- Adam Driver

Year Other

One thing that helps to stretch me is to listen to other preacher's sermons. Every year, I will listen to at least ten other preachers, both to hear God speak to me, and also to evaluate their preaching to see what I can learn and how I can improve my own preaching.

- Adam Hamilton

Everyone About

The greatest thing about music is everyone has their own style, and I respect all styles of music.

- Adam Hicks

Parent Critical

When it comes right down to it, developing a critical sensibility about parenting isn't really about disapproval; it's about honing your own sensibilities, figuring out how you want to parent.

- Adam Mansbach

Career Other

The paradox of being in an industry where other people are usually the gatekeepers: publishers, editors - there are a lot of barriers to having control over your career. But coming out of hip-hop, the mindset was always to create your own.

- Adam Mansbach

Kid Least

To be a white kid into hip-hop meant you'd sought it out and you practiced the art. Which meant dedication and diligence, as well as removing yourself at least occasionally from your own comfort zone and circumstances, and from people who looked like you.

- Adam Mansbach

Against Flags

I consider that 9/11 was the day when war was started against my own work and against myself. Even though we are not sure of the links, Iraq was one of the countries that did not lower its flags in mourning on 9/11.

- Adam Michnik

Slightly TV

British audiences tend to want to see their own lives reflected on TV, whereas American audiences are quite aspirational and enjoy high-concept shows that show them lives that are perhaps slightly more exciting than they aspire to.

- Adam Rayner

Feel Other

When I'm around the kids I feel like I act the most grown-up just because you're supposed to. And I say things, like every other day, that remind me of my own parents.

- Adam Sandler

My Own Reject

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

- Adam Savage

Success Define

A band can define their own success.

- Adam Schlesinger

Project Fewer

It would probably be better if I got involved in fewer things just because I'd have more time to write for my own purposes... But if somebody calls you up with a really cool project, it's hard to just say 'no' because you don't feel like working.

- Adam Schlesinger

Face Die

'They Both Die At The End' is about coming face to face with your own mortality.

- Adam Silvera

Want Paint

If you paint a picture and I paint a picture, we each want to do it our own way. And we'll stand or fall on whatever we did.

- Adam West

Movies New

The new 'Dark Knight' movies, they're wonderful in their own way.

- Adam West

Got Bit

Just as we were finishing 'Paul's Boutique' we got our own places, and I was going out to clubs a lot less. I got a bit more introverted and spent a lot more time on my own reading. I would just go down to the esoteric bookstore and wander around.

- Adam Yauch

Politics TV

I talk about any number of things on my Facebook space. Politics. Current events. The writing life. The latest tempests in a teapot centering on fandom. Daily doings from my own life. My cats, for crying out loud. Flights of humorous fantasy. Books, both those I've read and those I've written. Movies. And occasionally, TV shows.

- Adam-Troy Castro

Very Putting

In a photo shoot, you have to be very comfortable in your own skin. It's all about confidence-boosting and putting on armor.

- Adelaide Clemens

Strong My Own

When my mother tells me to do something, I'll do my own thing. A strong character can be good, but sometimes it is not good. I hope it's good in my case.

- Adelina Sotnikova

Rise Above Everybody

Everybody seems to be imprisoned in their own sectarian or political affiliations. They don't seem to be able to rise above these things.

- Adnan Pachachi

Readiness Buried

I am left alone in the wide world. My own dear family I have buried: one in Rangoon, and two in Amherst. What remains for me but to hold myself in readiness to follow the dear departed to that blessed world, 'Where my best friends, my kindred dwell, where God, my Saviour, reigns.'

- Adoniram Judson

Language Simple

Though I have seldom done anything to my own satisfaction, I am better satisfied with the translation of the New Testament than I ever expected to be. The language is, I believe, simple, plain, intelligible; and I have endeavored, I hope successfully, to make every sentence a faithful representation of the original.

- Adoniram Judson

Other Tries

There are lots of different interpretations of the word 'prodigy.' My own is of someone who is talented and tries to help other children. So in that respect I could be called one, although I don't think I'll go off the rails.

- Adora Svitak

Love Year

We all love people who give credit to others for their success. Companies would probably do better with CEOs who didn't blow their own horn and ask for ridiculous salaries and new yachts every year.

- Adora Svitak

Needs Planet

We are on parallel paths with the planet. The wants and needs of marine wildlife are our own: we want connection, companionship, a healthy clean environment.

- Adrian Grenier

Very Movie

I was watching Monster's Ball, which is a fabulous movie. It's just a little gem: beautifully shot, and shot in a way I never would have done. It made me feel very old, really, because it wasn't eccentric for its own sake, it was just very original.

- Adrian Lyne

Fact 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

Some Comics

Most of my work - including everything from my own comics to the covers I've drawn for 'The New Yorker' - is the result of taking some personal experience or observation and then fictionalizing it to a degree.

- Adrian Tomine

Understand Quick

I understand how a first impression is often just that: a quick snapshot that, on its own merit, is meaningless.

- Adriana Trigiani

Doing Audience

It looks better when you do your own stunts, because seeing somebody's face when they're doing them is fun for the audience.

- Adrianne Palicki

About Outpouring

The nomads' egalitarian lifestyle astonished the Greeks, who kept their own women indoors weaving and minding children. The exotic Scythian lifestyle fueled the Greek imagination and led to an outpouring of myths about fierce Amazons, 'the equals of men.'

- Adrienne Mayor

My Own Very

I came from a very corporate environment, but my own style is quite approachable, warm, and very detail oriented.

- Aerin Lauder

Drop Against

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.

- Aeschylus

Will Utter

And one who is just of his own free will shall not lack for happiness; and he will never come to utter ruin.

- Aeschylus

Give Means

We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.

- Aesop

Other Anymore

I do not like people writing songs and then other people singing them. A lot of people don't even sing their own songs anymore. It's like producers these days have ghost producers; 'I don't produce, but I am a producer.'

- Afrojack

Nothing Social

There is nothing wrong with being well off as long as money has a social and ethical value and is not the object of one's own greed.

- Aga Khan IV

Confident Neighbours

A secure pluralistic society requires communities that are educated and confident both in the identity and depth of their own traditions and in those of their neighbours.

- Aga Khan IV

Will Tendency

There's too much tendency to attribute to God the evils that man does of his own free will.

- Agatha Christie

Country Iraqis

Are Iraqis ready to carry the responsibility for their country? Is Iraq ready to be its own master? We want to be the masters of ourselves and to carry our responsibilities in this region.

- Ahmed Chalabi

Tell Whole

Police in China can do whatever they want; after 81 days in arbitrary detention you clearly realise that they don't have to obey their own laws. In a society like this there is no negotiation, no discussion, except to tell you that power can crush you any time they want - not only you, your whole family and all people like you.

- Ai Weiwei

Through Other

You get to be wiser by storying the world and seeing it through other forms of consciousness than your own.

- Aidan Chambers

Good I Think

My own rapping skills are quite good, actually. You get this thing, I think it's called Songify or AutoRap, and you talk into them, and they auto-tune it and make it into a quite interesting musical number. And I got one where it builds it into a rap.

- Aidan Gillen

Shame Everybody

Everybody kind of understands, Oh yeah you take drugs and it does something to your brain and then you can't stop. It's easier to describe that shame, that horrible feeling of not being able to control your own life.

- Aimee Mann

Disability I Think

I think that everyone has something about themselves that they feel is their weakness... their 'disability.' And I'm certain we all have one, because I think of a disability as being anything which undermines our belief and confidence in our own abilities.

- Aimee Mullins

Supportive Detriment

I'm the kindest, most supportive friend ever, probably to my own detriment, but I hope that I am toughening up a little bit.

- Aisha Tyler

Tell Day And Age

In this day and age, when there are so many people creating work online and writing their own shows, I wouldn't tell another actor, 'If you can do anything else go do that.' I would tell them to figure out the story they want to tell, to figure out what artists inspire you and why, and then figure out a way you can create that for yourself.

- Aja Naomi King

My Own Allow

I was getting in my own way. I would quit jobs and step out on hope and faith, and pray to God that I would book something that would allow me to just continue to act.

- Aja Naomi King

Creative Your

It is important to make your own stuff. Even if you are not an actor, it is important to not stop involving yourself as a creative person.

- Ajay Naidu

Mind See

America makes up its own mind about what it wants to see.

- Ajay Naidu

I Think Politically

If you look at it closely, 'Mankatha' is a politically incorrect film. It explores the darker side of the human mind, and I think, while watching it, people are, in a sense, redeeming themselves of their own guilt.

- Ajith Kumar

Compare Basis

Each department and institution has its own authorities and responsibilities, and they act on that basis. It is wrong to even compare such actions to what is done in Guantanamo or elsewhere by the Americans. They do not stand on a high moral platform to preach to others.

- Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani

Anger Thy

Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.

- Akhenaton

Directors Videos

I've always loved music videos - I used to make my own for bands like Pearl Jam. My favorite directors are Michel Gondry, Spike Jonze, and Patrick Daughters.

- Akiva Schaffer

Work Father

My father used to see God in human beings and in his work. Each person has his own way.

- Akkineni Nagarjuna

My Own Screen

I'm an athletic actor. I'm known for my action; I'm a guy who does my own stunts on screen.

- Akshay Kumar

Use Years And Years

If you want a free email service that doesn't use your words to target ads to you, you'll have to figure out how to port years and years of Gmail messages somewhere else, which is about as easy as developing your own free email service.

- Al Franken

Crowd Sly

I came along with that crowd of singer-songwriters who were able to make their own statements in such a personal way that it changed the industry: Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Sly and the Family Stone.

- Al Jarreau

Political About

Let's get with it, guys: You don't need to hear a Ministry song to get political. You should be political on your own. We're just a side project to society. So do I care what people think about me personally? No. I just do what I do.

- Al Jourgensen

Stupid Away

It's such a stupid thing to sign a band and then demand a hit right away to instantly recoup the money. The point is, you have to do it by building your own following, and that is not necessarily done by writing instant hits.

- Al Jourgensen

Hands Officer

In Ferguson, there are witnesses who say Brown had his hands up when he was shot. That should be enough probable cause to go to trial to then determine if Officer Wilson is guilty or not. It is at trial that he can then defend himself and his attorneys can present their own witnesses and their own defense.

- Al Sharpton

Work Gotta

So that's why one of my rules of parody writing is that it's gotta be funny regardless of whether you know the source material. It has to work on its own merit.

- Al Yankovic
