- Andy Roddick

Stupid Doing

- David Benioff

Most therapists do not appear to know how to pinpoint and reverse therapeutic resistance - to head it off at the pass.

Smaller Very

The winters are too long, and there's only one airline, so it's difficult to escape when you feel frustrated or claustrophobic. The audience for our films isn't very large, so it's difficult to support an industry. But, Iceland is beautiful. Sometimes it's hard to imagine living anywhere else.

Reasons TV

A mockumentary is supposed to be real, and we were frustrated with mockumentaries on TV, which are so rampant because of the success of 'The Office.' It's not real.

I'm fortunate enough to have learned not to waste time getting frustrated with my kids, or co-workers, or friends and family for not doing everything I wish they would. If someone doesn't respond to me the way I want them to, I understand that it doesn't have anything to do with me.

- Ellen McLaughlin

Career Away

I did have a nice career in print, but traditional publishers don't always have the resources to create individualized marketing for their authors.

- Kirk Gibson

Run Been

I have been running since I was 7. I was trying to restructure the way my body was made instead of trying to master the way I ran. I would get so frustrated with my starts in practices that I would just cry. When I ran, I wouldn't even try to get out of the blocks, I would just run.

- Florence Griffith Joyner

Cowboy Guess

I guess I'm just a frustrated cowboy.

- Lauren DeStefano

Play Other

'Are 'Friends' Electric?' was two songs: the verse part and the talking part. Two different songs I couldn't finish.

Director Like

I'm not like one of those actors who's a frustrated director.

I Think

If we continue to fight the National Rifle Association on their home court, which is the legislative front, I think we'll continue to be frustrated.

- Gavin Newsom

Sabbath Albums

I was so frustrated in Sabbath after the last few albums. I just didn't like the musical direction Sabbath was going in.

- Geezer Butler

My Life Role

My mom is one of my role models in a complicated way. I learned from her how to be a good mom. She was one of those natural moms who really took to it. Her chosen profession was teaching.

- Leslie Morgan Steiner
