Regrets? None at all.

Around About

When I was younger, I talked to the adults around me that I respected most about how they got where they were, and none of them plotted a course they could have predicted, so it seemed a waste of time to plan too long-term. Since then, I've always gone on my instincts.

- Anderson Cooper

Your Soon

None can less afford to delay than the aged sinner. Now is the time. Now or never. You have, as it were, one foot already in the grave. Your opportunities will soon be over. Strive, then, I entreat you, to enter in at the strait gate.

- Arne Jacobsen

Trend Farmers

In the five years from 2007 to 2012, we only gained a little over 1,200 farmers. Since we aren't going to stop eating, we have to reverse that trend, or we'll see even more consolidation, more corporate farms, or increasing food imports; none of that is in our interest.

Smaller While

- Dean Ornish

Perfect Facade

We all can relate to people's weaknesses. We might put up a facade that everything is perfect but none of us are. When we see that weakness in somebody else, we understand or give ourselves a little bit of leeway.

Pleasure Diversified

Pleasure is none, if not diversified.

Reports Telling

- Jonathan Kozol

Myself My Life

If my life is of no value to my friends it is of none to myself.

Trust Israel

None of us and none of the Arabs trust Israel.

- Bashar al-Assad

Waste Time Capacity

Imagine if all those kings and dukes hadn't commissioned those crazy cathedrals, paintings and music... we'd still be living in sticks and mud. Because none of those things made any economic sense. Human beings' capacity to 'waste time' is a miracle - but that's exactly what art is for.

Themselves Those

None are so empty as those who are full of themselves.

- Benjamin Whichcote

Never Known

None but a coward dares to boast that he has never known fear.

- Bertrand Russell

Very Aspects

At no point do I ever remember taking religion very seriously or even feeling that the biblical stories were any different from fairy stories. Certainly, none of it made any sense. By comparison, the world in which I lived, though I might not always understand it in all aspects, always made a lot of sense.

- Harry Kroto

Thought Big

I don't understand art-speak. My pictures are big doodles. I'm amazed what people come up with when they look at them. There's one of a figure with two heads that somebody thought must be a comment on the state of matrimony. None of it is a comment on anything.

- Billy Connolly

Trust Political

If we put our trust in the common sense of common men and 'with malice toward none and charity for all' go forward on the great adventure of making political, economic and social democracy a practical reality, we shall not fail.

Negative feedback is better that none. I would rather have a man hate me than overlook me. As long as he hates me I make a difference.

Our Out

None of our family businesses were focused on technology. It was '93 when I came out of law school, and the Internet was taking hold. So I started New World Ventures.

- J. B. Pritzker

Records About

So people think I'm lying about my age all the time? It's the records that are wrong. I've never told anyone how old I am. The minute they ask me, I say 'That's none of your business.' So that means I've never once lied about my age. Now that's true!

- Calista Flockhart

Back Here

Everything I do is for my parents, None of this matters without them. If it weren't for them, I wouldn't be here... If it wasn't for them, if it wasn't for the structure and the backbone that I have, I wouldn't be able to mess up and keep coming back and sit in front of you as a world champion.

- J. R. Smith

Cause Had

It is to be remedied that the false traitors will suffer no man to come into the king's presence for no cause without bribes where none ought to be had. Any man might have his coming to him to ask him grace or judgment in such case as the king may give.

Set Several

Several tons of dynamite are set off in this picture - none of it under the right people.

- James Agee

Other Out

People think that I'm mean because I'm quiet, and I don't really go out places or because I don't really say too much. On the other hand, people think that I'm soft because I may not handle myself the way other people handle themselves. That's just not me. They don't know my background or none of that stuff.

- Derrick Rose

Book Other

There are other types of public appearances a writer does in addition to book signings and readings. Each calls for different skills. None of these skills, needless to say, are those that go into writing books.

- Jane Lindskold

Book Least

- Elinor Wylie

Best Very

I simply can't do one-word message replies: Yes. Ok. No. Sure. Cool. None of these are options for me. I must write something extra. Something personal. I put kisses and emoticons. Emoticons, by the way, are my very best friends. They have removed all the pressure of thinking up something personal to say.

- Karan Johar

Free Until

Until we are all free, we are none of us free.

- Emma Lazarus

Commercial Same Thing

None of my movies have ever made any money, so it's not about commercial success for me. It's always the same thing. I want to create something valuable, something unusual and different that the world has never seen.

Like Very

Affectation is a very good word when someone does not wish to confess to what he would none the less like to believe of himself.

Source Error

We have seen that no religion stands on the basis of things known; none bounds its horizon within the field of human observation; and, therefore, as it can never present us with indisputable facts, so must it ever be at once a source of error and contention.

- Frances Wright

Always Kid

Tony Orlando is one of the nicest guys I have ever met - bar none - in my entire life. I was always a fan when I was a kid - you know, huge fan. Who wasn't a fan of Tony Orlando?

- Larry the Cable Guy

Honor Him

A silent man is easily reputed wise. A man who suffers none to see him in the common jostle and undress of life, easily gathers round him a mysterious veil of unknown sanctity, and men honor him for a saint. The unknown is always wonderful.

- Frederick William Robertson

Say Drank

To say I drank my way into marriage isn't much of an exaggeration, and it's none at all to say I drank my way out of it.

- Lawrence Block

Your Second-Hand

Your second-hand bookseller is second to none in the worth of the treasures he dispenses.

- Leigh Hunt

Through Realism

A lot of television shows, when you see births, the baby is coming out, and the wife is freaking, 'You did this to me!' but she is still super beautiful. There's none of the realism that we just went through.

- Lennon Parham

Play Big

There's not an orchestra in the world that doesn't have weaknesses. None of us can play everything well. The repertoire is just too big.

Strength Swimmer

The swimmer adrift on the open seas measures his strength, and strives with all his muscles to keep himself afloat. But what is he to do when there is no land on the horizon, and none beyond it?

- Georges Duhamel

Through Very

All of the sports have a safety net, but boxing is the only sport that has none. So when the fighter is through, he is through. While he was fighting his management was very excited for him, but now that he is done, that management team is moving on.

- Gerry Cooney

Say Big

I'm bored' is a useless thing to say. You live in a great, big, vast world that you've seen none percent of.

Life Given

And life is given to none freehold, but it is leasehold for all.

- Lucretius

Other Disregard

Legislators and judges are necessarily exposed to all the temptations of money, fame, and power, to induce them to disregard justice between parties, and sell the rights, and violate the liberties of the people. Jurors, on the other hand, are exposed to none of these temptations.

- Lysander Spooner

War Cruelty

War is cruelty, and none can make it gentle.

None of us is as smart as all of us.

- Phil Condit

Way Many

How Many

- Thomas Browne

Fear Mistakes

Do not fear mistakes. There are none.

- Miles Davis

Buy Had

I had the notion that, OK, so now we have all of this wealth, we could buy not only one expensive car, we could buy all of them. As soon as you realize that you could buy all of them, then none of them are particularly interesting or satisfying.

- Pierre Omidyar

Friendship Friends

I keep my friends as misers do their treasure, because, of all the things granted us by wisdom, none is greater or better than friendship.

She Lovers

She who boasts of lovers soon has none.

Queen Palace

The Queen's intelligence network is a hell of a lot better than anyone's in this palace. Bar none. She knows everything. I don't know how she does it. And she sees everything.

- Prince Andrew

Cold Willing

Being asked to describe what 'post-racial' means is a bit like being asked to describe a leprechaun, cold fusion or unicorns: we know what is meant, but, if we are willing to be honest, we also know that none of the four describe something real, something tangible, something true.

- Tim Wise

Love Fair

None of us can claim to be fair and square in love - and I'm definitely not a hypocrite! Humans are built to evolve with time. It depends on the nature of the relationship you share with a person. It is there today, tomorrow it may be gone; c'est la vie.

- Randeep Hooda

Some Had

I guess The Grudge made over $100 million, but none of them had long legs after they came out but they all opened up and found an audience. If you could make those movies for a price, which is what I want to do with Spawn, then you could have some success.

- Todd McFarlane

Muslim Jewish

I'm a firm believer in God himself, but that's as far as I can go. I'm not any denomination. I'm not Catholic or Presbyterian or Baptist or Methodist or Jewish or Muslim. I'm none of those things. And I'm sure that's just fine with God.

- Ray Charles

Mature Boy

If you look at movies with Cary Grant or Jimmy Stewart and all the rest of it, none of them looks like a boy. They always looked like mature men. The audience didn't want to go and see kids.

- Tom Conti

Good Us

None of Us is as Good as All of Us.

- Ray Kroc

Fair Going

It's really never fair to judge people because none of us know what's going on inside anyone else's head.

- Tom Ford

Young Combat

The combat environment has the effect of flattening out civilian identities. If you're young or old, or a graduate from Harvard or the son of a farmer from Alabama, or if you're gay or straight or good-looking or ugly: none of those things matters much in combat, as long as you can conform to the group expectations.

- Sebastian Junger

Experience Becoming

What I got out of it was a great experience working with great people and it becoming a tremendous - basically - a family at the end that none of us wanted to leave.

- Shane West

World Us

None of us live in a zero-risk world.

- Rex Tillerson

Anybody Written

None of this was written to hurt anybody's feelings.
