There are always a hundred people in the background who have helped to make it.

- Alice Oswald

I Think Been

Reason Some

Some mathematics problems look simple, and you try them for a year or so, and then you try them for a hundred years, and it turns out that they're extremely hard to solve. There's no reason why these problems shouldn't be easy, and yet they turn out to be extremely intricate.

Been About

Historically, over the last two or three hundred years, the relationship that we've had with money as a society - having money, talking about money - has been a little bit of a shameful thing. Splashing money about is clearly wrong, but there's nothing wrong about giving it back.

Book Allowed

I hate SF books that think all you need to make a book is cool technology and mind-bending ideas without a decent plot or characters. And I hate when fantasy books are allowed to ramble off into five hundred page diatribes which don't advance the story one bit.

Been Could

Fool! Don't you see now that I could have poisoned you a hundred times had I been able to live without you.

Used Anymore

- Cormac McCarthy

Doctor Researcher

A doctor can save maybe a few hundred lives in a lifetime. A researcher can save the whole world.

Inside Out

Coming where I'm coming from, really, my family name isn't a pressure because, you know, music is not like sports, where you can go and do a hundred reps in a gym and come out and be all buffed up. Music is an expression of what's inside of you. And that's how I make music.

- Damian Marley

Chicken Pattern

Repetition creates pattern. If I have a hundred of these, a hundred of those, it doesn't make any difference what these and those are. If I can repeat anything, I have the possibility of a pattern from hickory nuts and chicken eggs, shards of glass, branches. It doesn't make any difference.

- Dan Phillips

Over Broadway

You bet I arrived overnight. Over a few hundred nights in the Catskills, in vaudeville, in clubs and on Broadway.

I Think Been

I think that Shake Shack wouldn't exist had it not been for Twitter.

- Danny Meyer

Reason Some

It's a feeling you get. You could have a hundred actors reading for one part, and they could all be spectacular, but one sticks out for some reason.

- Daren Kagasoff

Couple Very

I think 'Shark Tank' is targeting companies that are really trying to raise their very first dollar. A lot of them aren't really tech focused. We're definitely going after companies that are building real technology, either software or hardware, they probably have raised a couple hundred thousand already.

- Dave McClure

Doing Couple

Most firms do two investments a year. They may talk to between 50 and 100 and do a couple, whereas we're talking to thousands and doing several hundred.

- Dave McClure

Rather Equally

People nowadays think of gamebooks as rather old hat - and, after all, it was twenty years ago. In their heyday, though, they were a phenomenon, selling upwards of a hundred thousand units per title. And it's not as old hat as you might think: the same design skills I used in those days apply equally when I'm creating modern videogames.

- Dave Morris

Last Pages

I'm scattered, and then that last hundred pages, bam, I'm a laser.

- David Fincher

Hit Madras

The double hundred Fowler hit in the Madras Test was an absolute beauty.

- David Gower

England Very

The one major disappointment I have is that I didn't get a hundred against India in India. I got lots of runs against India in England including a double hundred I am very proud of.

- David Gower

Week Some

- David Knopfler

Here About

Listen, here's the thing about an English degree - if you sat somebody down and asked them to make a list of the writers they admire over the last hundred years, see how many of them got a degree in English.

- David Mamet

Took Hundred Years

In a few hundred years you have achieved in America what it took thousands of years to achieve in Europe.

- David McCallum

Big Idea

It takes a big idea to attract the attention of consumers and get them to buy your product. Unless your advertising contains a big idea, it will pass like a ship in the night. I doubt if more than one campaign in a hundred contains a big idea.

- David Ogilvy

New Sucks

Being a lawyer in New York sucks because you're working eighty, sometimes a hundred hours a week.

- David Steinberg

I Think Deal

I think the institute of marriage is a noble thing. The idea of a partner for life is incredibly romantic. But now we're living to 100. A hundred years ago people were dying at age 37. Til death do us part was a much different deal.

- Debra Messing

Three Boy

When I started, there weren't any arenas. There was football fields, but they would only hold three or four or five hundred people at the most... We played a lot of high school auditoriums and things like that - a lot of churches... but boy, it has changed.

Lucky Week

At Sequoia, upwards of a hundred entrepreneurs a week present, and if we're lucky, maybe a dozen of them are focusing on the enterprise.

- Jim Valvano

Nothing Give

I am blessed with the energy of a chimpanzee. There is nothing I can't get up for and give it a hundred percent.

- Jimmy Iovine

Been Fathers

Since God had commanded it, it was necessary that I do it. Since God commanded it, even if I had a hundred fathers and mothers, even if I had been a King's daughter, I would have gone nevertheless.

- Joan of Arc
