Becoming Some

I did not grow up thinking that I wanted to be an engineer. I had read some articles about girls becoming increasingly scientifically illiterate and that girls lacked confidence in their capabilities when it came to quantitative skills. And I just thought that was kind of wrong.

- Aileen Lee

Rest Question

The signs that the world is spinning out of kilter are increasingly difficult to misinterpret. The question is how to convince enough people to join a critical mass of urgent opinion, in the U.S. and the rest of the world.

- Al Gore


There are people who say, 'Oh this guy is quite thick.' I think the reason is that, increasingly, I don't mind being simple in terms of literary expression. Others say, 'No, no, no. He went to Cambridge. He got a good degree. He must be Einstein.'

- Alain de Botton

Couple Almost

I increasingly fear that nothing good can come of almost any adaptation, and obviously that's sweeping. There are a couple of adaptations that are perhaps as good or better than the original work. But the vast majority of them are pointless.

Idea Some

Why do we even need WikiLeaks? They're not the only organization that publishes leaks. And they don't have some special technology that allows them to post on the Internet with mirrored sites. The idea of WikiLeaks lives on, but as an organization, it's become increasingly irrelevant.

- Alex Gibney

Bigger Rising

I don't know what has caused this reawakening in academia. Obama? The GOP's assaults on science and on patients? Jon Stewart? I'm not at all sure.

- Alice Dreger

Medicine Set

I actually completely suck at being a bioethicist. What I do is history of medicine and patient advocacy. Patient advocacy is actually the opposite of bioethics, because bioethicists are the people who increasingly set up and justify the systems we patient advocates have to fight.

- Alice Dreger

Play Some

Being a father of three children and grandfather to nine, I do think that this thing called 'parenting' is becoming increasingly difficult.

- Craig T. Nelson

- Daniel H. Pink

Think Country

I think technology is spreading, and I think one's experience of technology is going to relate increasingly to class - not so much to country.

- Daniel Suarez

Play Measured

Our education system is increasingly embracing a black-and-white way of thinking, in which 'learning' and 'play' are diametrically opposed. 'Learning' is the serious stuff that happens inside a classroom and can be measured via multiple choice questions and a No. 2 pencil. 'Play' is frivolous, fun, and worst of all, optional.

- Darell Hammond

Music Venue

Instrumental music is increasingly marginalized and there's just no outlet, there's no venue for it, in terms of media.

- Dean Karnazes

Becoming Been

In a global economy, the Bush doctrine of unilateralism - going it alone - has been disastrous. It's becoming increasingly clear that we're all in this together. Your happiness is my happiness, your suffering is my suffering, your recession is my recession.

- Dean Ornish

More Been

The world we live in has been and is being increasingly politicised so that our daily experience is more and more a matter of public policy.

Through Some

Like Fewer

We have increasingly fewer and fewer journalists who have any military experience and understand what life is like in the military and in combat.

Art Beginning

- Joe Shuster

About Goods

Globalisation means many things. At one level, it talks of trade, which since the 16th century has exchanged goods and now, increasingly, ideas and information across the globe. But globalisation is also a view of the world - it is an opinion about man and why men are on the world.

- John Berger

Society Aware

Though neglectful of their responsibility to protect science, scientists are increasingly aware of their responsibility to society.

See Been

We will see the increasingly rapid rate of growth we've already been seeing in Colorado continue.

Society Aware

- John Templeton

Becoming Very

Barry White seemed so filled with self-parody at first that it was easy to dismiss him. But it is becoming increasingly obvious with every additional release that he is a very talented man.

- Jon Landau

Needed Became

The early Stones were adolescent rockers. They were self-conscious in an obvious and unpretentious way. And they were committed to a musical style that needed no justification because it came so naturally to them. As they grew musically the mere repetition of old rock and blues tunes became increasingly less satisfying.

- Jon Landau


We eat as sons and daughters, as families, as communities, as generations, as nations, and increasingly as a globe. We can't stop our eating from radiating influence even if we want to.

- Jonathan Safran Foer

Digital Other

Digital books and other texts are increasingly coming under the control of distributors and other gatekeepers rather than readers and libraries.

- Jonathan Zittrain

Small Stigma

Native Americans' families experience living surrounded, living in increasingly small reservations surrounded by the society that destroyed their civilization, and are still stigmatized.

Find Very

I find it very difficult to relax. I find it increasingly difficult to find outlets for my frustration.

- Ban Ki-moon

Grow Will

And that will increasingly dawn on people. The demand for controlling the commanding heights will grow.

- Barbara Castle

Becoming Code

I found it interesting that as people become more technically oriented all over the world, at the same time people are becoming increasingly spiritual. The success of the Da Vinci code - even though it was a great yawn - also showed people's interest in religion.

- Barbara Walters

Which Offered

We are increasingly offered a diet in which sensation, not story, is king.

- Beeban Kidron

Work Need

We need to work out who is paying for film; in the U.K., it is increasingly difficult to get production funds - and pre-sales demand more and more shot/cut material.

- Beeban Kidron

Own Use

Our children, manipulated to become exemplary consumers, increasingly admit they do not feel 'in control' of their own Internet use.

- Beeban Kidron

Love Means

I have been thinking about the notion of perfect love as being without fear, and what that means for us in a world that's becoming increasingly xenophobic, tortured by fundamentalism and nationalism.
