Smaller

Affect Cut

Happiness statistics may be most valuable in smaller, local discussions. Understanding how different sorts of programs affect the well-being of citizens would be enormously helpful to a mayor choosing between building a new bridge or offering a tax cut.

- Adam Davidson

Hiring Activity

The cardinal rule of taxation is that whatever you put a levy on, you'll inevitably get less of. Taxing corporate activity means less investing, less hiring, fewer jobs and a smaller economy, which hurts the rich, the poor and the middle class alike.

- Adam Davidson

Making Films

I really loved making 'A Walk to Remember', so I'm not afraid of making smaller films. But for me, I just need to connect to the characters.

- Adam Shankman

West Coast Stories

All my stories take place on the West Coast - not the beach, but smaller inland towns. I feel homesick, and I find inspiration in capturing that.

- Adrian Tomine

Mind Conceit

The smaller the mind the greater the conceit.

- Aesop

Against Own

I will continue to speak out against the views of both Limbaugh and Hannity when I feel it's warranted, meeting their free speech with my own. But I will never forget that, without them, I'd have a much smaller platform on which to do it.

- Alan Colmes

Republican Other

I stated that I'm a libertarian Republican, which means I believe in a series of issues, such as smaller government, constraint on budget deficits, free markets, globalization, and a whole series of other things, including welfare reform.

- Alan Greenspan

I Think Been

It's interesting - Pluto's almost a brand unto itself. It's the farthest. It's the most diminutive of the classical planets. It's been maligned by astronomers. It's always the one with all the question marks in the back of the textbook in the table. I think children identify with it because it's smaller, kind of cute.

- Alan Stern

Leverage Protects

Equity is the cushion that protects financial institutions from unexpected changes in the value of their assets. The greater the leverage, the smaller the losses required to wipe out a company's equity, leaving it without enough money to repay the people who hold its debt.

- Alex Berenson

Big Wal-Mart

Wal-Mart does not do big mergers, though it will buy much smaller competitors in so-called 'tuck-in acquisitions.'

- Alex Berenson

Small I Think

I think unadulterated products and smaller portion sizes mean consumption of less food overall. Portion is everything. The first time I bought a scoop of ice cream in Paris, they weighed the ice cream on a scale before putting it on the cone. It was so small, it fell into the cone as she handed it to me.

- Alex Guarnaschelli

Forest Other

The Awa are a distinctive-looking, diminutive forest people, smaller than any of the dozen other Amazon tribespeople I have met. Reduced size is adaptive in a rain forest. You can move around more easily and unobtrusively. Not only humans but other species are smaller in rain forests.

- Alex Shoumatoff

Lose Imbalance

If you lose sight of the smaller accomplishments, you end up with an imbalance in your life.

- Alexander McCall Smith

Turns Cracked

Topsoil is a place of digestion. It sucks and chews things into smaller pieces. When it's hungry, it turns grey and stony; when it's thirsty, it opens thousands of cracked lips. Subsoil is more skeletal: it doesn't digest.

- Alice Oswald

Green More

There's nothing on this green earth that a liberal progressive fears more than a black American who wants a better life and a smaller government.

- Allen West

Hands Half

I'm probably going to go more the feature film route for a while, just so I have more time on my hands. If I did go back to television, I'd do a comedy, a half hour. Or I'd go back on an hour long if it was ensemble, if I had a smaller role, if I could work less days.

- Ally Walker

She Taller

Maybe because she's smaller than me she might look taller.

- Amber Benson

Young Elderly

Obviously, you look for something that is commensurate with your age. You know that you can't be playing the young hero anymore, and you have to be relegated to something smaller and something elderly, and you just try and do your best.

- Amitabh Bachchan

Electronics Get

With electronics, they just get smaller and smaller.

- Amy Heckerling

Through Been

More and more smaller entities, such as Politico or TechCrunch, have been able to come out of nowhere and own entities. Dealbook, like them, now has an even greater opportunity, through additional resources, to drill down and offer even more breaking news and deep analysis of the issues that matter to our audience.

- Andrew Ross Sorkin

Wait Give

Why do we need to wait until somebody sells 10 million records to give people a show like that? What about us smaller, hungry folk? At least gimme a curtain!

- Angie Stone

Madonna Shop

Pepper Which

I have lately examined water, in which beaten pepper was steeped, and found two sorts of animals for shape, and each of those sorts to contain greater and smaller kinds: the greater I supposed the elder, the less the younger.

- Antonie van Leeuwenhoek

Small Think

I don't think of myself as a small receiver, but you can't control what somebody says about you. It hasn't held me back - actually, I think I've changed the perception of smaller receivers.

- Antonio Brown

Play 30 Minutes

A 300pp novel can easily become a 200pp novel by printing with smaller type; a 100pp screenplay can potentially become a film of between 60-140 minutes in length; a 200pp stage play could be performed in anything from 30 minutes to four hours. For all these media, the script length is agnostic to the final work.

- Antony Johnston

Small Some

I think maybe short stories operate in some of the same ways that poems do. They frame single or small moments and elevate those. They give you insight into more minor dramas maybe, dramas between smaller groups of people.

- Antonya Nelson

Your Pillars

Your calves, biceps and neck should always be the same size in inches. Mine are 16 inches - anything bigger or smaller and you know you're going wrong! Most men ignore working out the legs and glutes, not realising that they are the pillars of our core.

- Arjun Rampal

Knowledge Small

As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.

- Arthur Schopenhauer

Country Gotten

The Democratic Party has gotten narrower and it's gotten smaller and it's fundamentally wrong on all the key questions involving the economic future of this country and our hopes of prosperity. And many Americans are beginning to realize that.

- Artur Davis

Big Very

Acting is a smaller piece in a big puzzle. There are charity things I want to immerse myself in and want to have the time to go and give back to people who don't have the opportunities I have. It's a very important thing to me.

- Ashley Greene

Process May

The process of radiation may be, and is, continuous - at any rate within limits extending to far smaller quantities than the quantum.

- Charles Glover Barkla

Which Predecessors

My first attempts to transmit typhus to laboratory animals, including the smaller species of monkeys, had failed, as had those of my predecessors, for reasons which I can easily supply today.

- Charles Jules Henry Nicole

Level Laying

Laying the groundwork for smaller, smarter government, especially at the federal level, is going to be tough. But it is essential for getting us back on the path to long-term prosperity.

- Charles Koch

Career More

I've lived my career backwards - I started off huge and I've got smaller and more personal, and I'm much more comfortable now.

- Charlie Simpson

Want Like

We like playing smaller venues, but we know how many people want to come and see us so we don't ever want to stop anyone who wants to come to a show from coming.

- Chester Bennington

Strong I Think

My character is somebody who is smaller in stature and yet who's strong, so to see the fighting situations between people who are not generally thought of being strong is in itself unusual and therefore interesting, I think.

- Chiaki Kuriyama

Natural Big

I'm kind of intimidated by the big screen - I often keep my performances much smaller and much more natural and subtle.

- Chloe Sevigny

Fact Big

I never really thought about myself being in really big movies at all. In fact, I always though I'd do, I don't know, smaller movies is not quite the right word, but more character-oriented, dramatic things. I took myself a little bit seriously.

- Chris Pine

Social Networks

Social networks particularly will tend to converge and consolidate over time, especially because they're inherently governed by network effects. So the bigger ones will just get bigger, their value will multiply exponentially, and the smaller ones will become less and less relevant.

- Clara Shih

Cause About

Because most startups are lean and scrappy organizations consisting of a limited number of people and supported by an even smaller number of resources, startups cannot afford to have any slackers on board. When you fail, you cause an 'epic failure,' and when you win, everyone in the company knows about it.

- Clay Clark

Big Plane

And I think it's that time. And I think if you just step aside and Mr. Romney can kind of take over. You can maybe still use a plane. Though maybe a smaller one. Not that big gas guzzler you are going around to colleges and talking about student loans and stuff like that.

- Clint Eastwood

Weird Movies

I'm in a kind of weird position where I want to prove that I can do smaller movies.

- Colin Trevorrow

Distance Bring

I come from Montana, and in eastern Montana we have a lot of dirt between light bulbs. It is expensive trying to bring the new technologies to smaller schools to upgrade their technologies to take advantage of distance learning.

- Conrad Burns

Pond Rough

As a rough rule of thumb, I would say the smaller the pond, the more belligerent the fish.

- Craig Brown

Love Small

I love Felicity Jones. It was funny because I went to go see the 'Rogue One' set, and I was like, 'Oh my God, I love you.' And she's so tiny, and elegant, and she's just so small. Everyone's so much smaller than they seem.

- Daisy Ridley

I Remember Films

I remember being inspired myself when smaller films, whether it's 'Beasts' or 'Winter's Bone,' wound up in the Oscars lineup.

- Damien Chazelle

Always Which

Coming from a smaller place always made things feel more personal, which is really what it's all about.

- Dan Auerbach

Want Kind

As far as the live shows go, we're not leapfrogging all the smaller venues. We would have bypassed these kind of shows and gone straight to the Arena shows, but we didn't want to.

- Dan Hawkins

Always Another

I was always looking to record, but how much I actually pursued it was another thing. The major labels weren't that interested in me, and the smaller labels didn't have any money to do anything.

- Dan Hicks

Very Proportion

Sometimes shooting on a smaller scale, as long as things don't blow out of proportion, is very liberating.

- Daniel Craig

Real Very

I've met real female NCIS agents who were smaller than I am. They were very petite.

- Daniela Ruah

Famous More

I found fame to be somewhat of a prison. The more famous you were, the smaller the cell that you had to live in.

- Dave Madden

Big Though

Though television is a smaller medium than the stage, you can't be afraid to be big.

- David Alan Basche

Want Films

Directing is not on my agenda, but writing is. I want to write everything from action, superhero films to quiet dramas, smaller films.

- David Dastmalchian

Big Very

The Big Bang theory is the idea that if we go back early enough in the history of the universe - and we can do this, of course, by looking at starlight coming to us from billions of years ago - we will see a very hot and dense period where the universe was much smaller, denser, and hotter.

- David Gross

Play Still

I headline concert halls for 20,000 people, but I still play smaller venues.

- David Guetta

World Small

Ballet is incestuous. This world is smaller than small.

- David Hallberg

Happen Need

We need a smaller, leaner Washington. It won't happen if we raise taxes without any coinciding reform and serious slashing of spending.

- David Harsanyi

Like Humane

More humane societies are usually smaller, like the Scandinavian countries and Holland, where it is much easier to reach consensus and cooperation.

- David Korten

Race Imposed

Historically, unfortunately, race seems to be the major division that humanity has imposed on itself, a way of subdividing into smaller groups.

- David Mitchell

Stories

In independent film you tend to have stories that involve more of a community, and the smaller characters are important to the story.

- David Morse

Bigger Shall

If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants.

- David Ogilvy

Beauty Some

For the greater beauty of the instrument, the balls representing the planets are to be of considerable bigness; but so contrived, that they may be taken off at pleasure, and others, much smaller, and fitter for some purposes, put in their places.

- David Rittenhouse

Republican Taxes

Don't get me wrong, I am a proud Republican, and I want to support my party. I am a firm believer in the Republican principles of smaller government, low taxes and economic freedom. I have spent my time in government service fighting for these principles.

- David Schweikert

Big Other

You do need to edit yourself as you shoot because you have fewer options in a smaller movie. In other words, when I'm shooting a big movie, and I got an 85 day shooting schedule or more, then I'm saying I have enough time to shoot option A and B and C and D for every scene.

- David Twohy

Strong Reagan

Ronald Reagan's vision of smaller government, less taxes, and a strong national defense has led to a prosperous America. As president, he rebuilt our military and reinvigorated our confidence in ourselves.

- David Vitter

Foods Larger

Smaller portions of good foods are more satisfying than larger portions of junk foods, especially if you pay attention to what you're eating.

- Dean Ornish

None While

How you eat is as important as what you eat. If I eat mindlessly while watching television, I get all of the calories and none of the pleasure. Instead, if I eat mindfully, paying attention and savoring what I'm eating, smaller portions of food can be exquisitely satisfying.

- Dean Ornish

Accountable Making

From cutting back on state contracts to reducing the number of state cars, We're making state government smaller, smarter, more efficient, and more accountable.

- Jim Doyle

Think Always

I think you have to be a niche player. You've got to find smaller ideas that are going to benefit in the conditions as they are. You can change the conditions and always try to find ways to make money in the conditions as they exist.

- Jim Oberweis

Love Given

I love hotels. I generally prefer smaller boutique hotels to large chains, especially when attention and wit has been given to interesting design elements and beautiful bathrooms.

- Joanna Going

Play Celtic

I can't play my songs on the smaller harp. I have a Celtic harp. I can't do the key changes.

- Joanna Newsom

Broadway Wanting

I grew up with 'Cinderella.' So that was my go-to Disney film, definitely. It was princess-related, and coming from a smaller area in Illinois and wanting to do something greater than myself in Broadway, that was a film that I could really relate to.

- Jodi Benson

Politics Election

When all is said and done and the e-book is written about politics and the Internet, it is not going to be about the presidential election. It will be about the smaller elections in aggregate that have a huge effect on people's lives.

- Joe Green

Through Grease

Everyone knows the presidential candidates and has an opinion about them. But as you get to smaller races, that evaporates and you can win through sheer elbow grease.

- Joe Green

Thought Lucky

I felt really lucky that 'Hairstyles Of The Damned' and 'The Boy Detective Fails' were both bestsellers, and I thought that donating the money from 'Demons' was a good way to respond to that. My favorite artists are the ones that are willing to experiment, even if it means a smaller audience.

- Joe Meno

Which Using

Instead of buying into the global agenda, which is using food as just industrial stuff, we would say we view food as biological, a living thing, that belongs in smaller communities.

- Joel Salatin

Anybody Used

The music business has changed incredibly. There used to be 50 record companies. Now there's only three, and it's just getting smaller and smaller. But then again, you have the Internet, so anybody who has music can get it out there.

- Joey McIntyre

Best Accounting

My philosophy is not a bean-counting, accounting 'look at this.' It is a philosophy that smaller government is better government, and government that is closer to the people is best of all.

- John Bolton

Always More

Ultimately, the film industry has always pushed out its biggies, and I don't have a problem with that. I just wish that we'd spend more time nurturing the smaller ones.

- John Hurt

Been Russian

Since the Columbia accident, the Russian space agency, or the Russian space program, has been literally carrying the load bringing us all the supplies we need on the Progress vehicle, smaller amounts on the Soyuz vehicles.

- John L. Phillips

Rural Providing

In providing this $5,000 tax credit for those purchasing rural homes, we're offering an important incentive to encourage people to live in smaller communities - and perhaps even stay in a community they might be considering leaving.

- John M. McHugh

Other Note

But we should be mindful as we argue about our differences that so much more unites than divides us. We should also note that our differences, when compared with those in many, if not most, other countries, are smaller than we sometimes imagine them to be.

- John McCain

Like Clerk

I like walking into a smaller hotel where the desk clerk recognizes me.

- John Pritzker

Other Reasons

There are good reasons why natural selection has become widely accepted as an explanation of evolutionary development. When applied to mammals and other large animals, it fits perfectly. But we cannot assume that all evolutionary steps arise from selection, particularly when looking at smaller animals.

- John Tyler Bonner

Average TV

Smaller than a breadbox, bigger than a TV remote, the average book fits into the human hand with a seductive nestling, a kiss of texture, whether of cover cloth, glazed jacket, or flexible paperback.

- John Updike

Feel Through

When we first created the Lyft community, we wanted to make cities feel smaller and more connected by bringing people together through transportation. In 20 months since we launched, we've seen drivers and passengers redefine the true meaning of community through Lyft in countless ways.

- John Zimmer

Larger Prefer

Due to my work, I tend to stay in hotels a lot of the time, and I generally prefer smaller hotels, as you tend to get better service than in the larger hotels.

- Jools Holland

Country United

The embargo doesn't affect the United States, not even minimally; all of Cuba's economy is smaller than that of Miami-Dade County, and the ones who suffer the most are Cubans. If you talk to them in the street, they're the ones most interested in the opening of a free market in their country.

- Jorge M. Perez

TV Using

The future of TV is not on TV. It's on the smaller screens we are all using in front of the television set.

- Jorge Ramos

Turned Occupy

On the whole, books are indeed less finite than ourselves. Even the worst among them outlast their authors - mainly because they occupy a smaller amount of physical space than those who penned them. Often they sit on the shelves absorbing dust long after the writer himself has turned into a handful of dust.

- Joseph Brodsky

Why Interacting

Art is not meant to change the world, but when you see people interacting, when you see an impact on their lives, then I guess in a smaller way, this is changing the world. So, that's what I believe in. That's why I'm into creating more and more interactions.

- JR

Big Banks

Whether or not you have good consumer protection has a big effect on safety and soundness of the banking community, especially smaller banks.

- Judd Gregg

Frustrated Very

A sonic logo on its own isn't going to do very much. We get frustrated with smaller brands who come to us and say, 'We need a bing-bong'. You just can't encapsulate a brand for £500 in a three-second sound. It doesn't work.

- Julian Treasure

Stupid Before

I've got a 27-inch waist. Before, I was stupid smaller. Finding clothes in the South was impossible.

- Justin Townes Earle

Mind Your

When you're working with a smaller budget I suppose one of the things that has to be in your mind when you are writing is that you have to keep the characters down to a minimum.

- Atom Egoyan

Doing Sells

The 'rock world' is a lot smaller than it used to be. It's doing a lot less things than it used to be. From Woodstock back in the day and Rage Against the Machine, no one sells millions of records anymore.

- Austin Carlile

Dream Head

The smaller the head, the bigger the dream.

- Austin O'Malley

Like Mostly

I do tend to like movies that challenge me professionally. That's mostly on a smaller scale, when you have one or two or five actors, and it's all about the acting and not the camera.

- Ayelet Zurer

Rather Tent

In the U.S., it would be so much better if the studios made many more smaller films for niche markets rather than a few tent pole films that swamp cinemas and Hoover up all the funding.

- Beeban Kidron
