Putting

Total Quotes : 850
Box Here

If I give five flops, I won't get a job. You have to perform at the box office when you are at the top. No one is running a charity here.

No matter how senior you get in an organization, no matter how well you're perceived to be doing, your job is never done.

- Adam Rapp

Learning Deep

I'm always going to be making costumes. It's one of the ways I relax my brain.

- Adam Savage

Sometimes Away

What I try to do is that when I'm at home, I'm at home. We're working hard at putting away our devices and not taking calls. Sometimes, you have to, but I'll say, 'Look guys, I've got to take this call, but when I'm done, I'm all yours. I just need 20 minutes.'

Racing Other

I had a hard time treating my field as if it's horse racing, putting actors in competition against each other.

Through Couple

When I'm putting a story together, I generally know the ending and a couple of the points halfway through, and I've got sort of an idea about the beginning, and although I do write the story one sentence at a time, when I'm thinking it up, I'm thinking it up all at once.

Mind Rather

- Alana Blanchard

Love College

Before college, I acted in my room, to classical music, because music tells stories. I'd put on a record and proceed, silently. I'd keep putting the needle back to a certain segment because I hadn't died well enough. I had to really, really feel dead. I'd love to do a death scene.

- Amanda Plummer

Mouth Fork

Fork: An instrument used chiefly for the purpose of putting dead animals into the mouth.

Here Part

When I was prosecutor we had truancy and curfew issues and we made a refrigerator magnet, and that was hot with parents.

- Amy Klobuchar

- Amy Klobuchar

Very Other

Who would know but ten years ago that kids would be texting each other all the time, that that would be one of their main forms of communication.

- Amy Klobuchar

Questions Tell

I cannot stress enough that the answer to life's questions is often in people's faces. Try putting your iPhones down once in a while, and look in people's faces. People's faces will tell you amazing things. Like if they are angry, or nauseous or asleep.

- Amy Poehler

Always Like

I always wrote poetry and stuff like that, so putting songs together wasn't that spectacular.

- Amy Winehouse

Feel Visceral

Father Your

In my father's generation, the product was 80 percent of what you were putting into the world, and your personal life was 20 percent. It now seems that 80 percent of the product I put out is silly, made-up stories and what I'm wearing.

- Angelina Jolie

Sometimes I Think

- Angie Thomas

Changes Feels

GamerGate is really a sexist temper tantrum. That's kind of a silly, funny way of putting it, but it's kind of what it feels like, right? They're going after and targeting women who are trying to make changes in the industry. They're attacking anyone who supports women.

- Anita Sarkeesian

Very Some

And then there's also this element of - some people would describe it as spirits or a presence that appears when things are very difficult, physically and emotionally. You know, when you're really putting out. So the third man aura is sort of an appearance. It's the yeti.

- Ann Bancroft

I Write Comics

I know I've erred in the past putting too much of my social justice sentiments in comics, but hopefully not too much, and I tried to only do that with characters that it made sense with it. These days, with the 'social justice' aspects of the two books I write, 'Catwoman' and 'Katana,' the concerns are more about moral justice.

- Ann Nocenti

TV Sarah

'Vogue' has a history of picking up on various TV shows that reflect a moment in popular culture, whether it's putting Lena Dunham on the cover or Sarah Jessica Parker.

- Anthony Joshua

Experience Out

I never really enjoyed getting a portfolio together then sending it out; whereas, putting up the website is quite an enjoyable experience. The net's just a much faster and more modern way to distribute things, and you have to embrace it.

- Anton Corbijn

Recovery Your

You've just got to train hard. Conditioning is key, recovery is key. As hard as you work, recovery is just as important. All the soft-tissue work daily, all the things that keep me clean. And you've always got to be aware of what you're eating, what you're putting inside your body. That's key as well.

- Antonio Brown

Believe City

I believe in the city as a natural human environment, but we must humanize it. It's art that will re-define public space in the 21st Century. We can make our cities diverse, inspirational places by putting art, dance and performance in all its forms into the matrix of street life.

- Antony Gormley

Posters Them

I used to spend a lot of time cutting out film posters from papers and putting them up on the wall in my room.

Gift Natural

Putting is like wisdom - partly a natural gift and partly the accumulation of experience.

Tax reform is taking the taxes off things that have been taxed in the past and putting taxes on things that haven't been taxed before.

- Art Buchwald

Own Discarded

It is only a man's own fundamental thoughts that have truth and life in them. For it is these that he really and completely understands. To read the thoughts of others is like taking the remains of someone else's meal, like putting on the discarded clothes of a stranger.

- Arthur Schopenhauer

Been Visuals

A lot of rappers been putting out a lot of sub-par visuals. I feel like the visuals could be better.

- ASAP Ferg

I Think TV

- Charles Kelley

Want Album

We're putting a lot of pressure on ourselves for this second album and so we want to make it as great as we possibly can.

- Charlie Shrem

Myself Pressures

I was putting all those pressures on myself.

- Charlotte Gainsbourg

I Think About

I think I'm most excited about traveling and shooting and spending time in L.A. I have a great talent agency there and, you know, working with my acting coach and really putting in the time and effort to transition into the acting.

- Charlotte McKinney

Will More People

Although there are people saying I'm putting on a show, I'm hoping more will emulate my 'performance.' If more people did, more needy people would get help.

Always Clear

I've always tried to stay clear of being labeled, putting a label on what type of music that I make.

Hands Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney will tell us the hard truths we need to hear to end the debacle of putting the world's greatest care system in the hands of federal bureaucrats and putting those bureaucrats between an American citizen and her doctor.

- Chris Fussell

Before Other

I hadn't read comics really before coming in to shooting the original 'Thor.' During that and beforehand, I read stacks and got my head around it all. We reference, especially when we were putting the script together before we started shooting, other stories.
