Tries

Total Quotes : 268
Other Each One

It's Will Ferrell, he does Will Ferrell movies. But if you really look at it, he tries to do something different with each one, whether it's an action cop movie like 'The Other Guys' or doing 'Talladega Nights' going into red state America or 'Casa de Mi Padre' or 'Stranger Than Fiction,' which is more of a drama.

City Out

New Orleans is New Orleans. It's a great city and fun and great food. It's one of those cities that when you are working hard hours like we work, you have to do as much as possible to stay out of trouble. Not much of a problem for me, but in New Orleans, trouble tries so much to find you.

Gift Larger

Who is there that ever receives a gift and tries to make bargains about it? Let us, then, return thanks for what He has bestowed on us. Who can tell whether, if we had had a larger share of ability or stronger health, we should not have possessed them to our destruction.

- Alphonsus Liguori

Communist Hit

Any pitcher who throws at a batter and deliberately tries to hit him is a communist.

- Alvin Dark

My Life Play

I've always been on the side of science that tries to help man. I play an active part with the foundations I'm involved in. Science gives hope. If it were offered to me? Never say never. But I wouldn't kill or steal to have my sight. My blindness doesn't define my life.

- Andrea Bocelli

Play Always

I've always been on the side of science that tries to help man. I play an active part with the foundations I'm involved in. Science gives hope.

Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is already up and need not strive to look better by making others look worse.

- Ann Landers

Love Character

What makes us love a character is a character that tries.

- Annette Bening

Attract Quick

Quick condemnation of all that is not ours, of views with which we disagree, of ideas that do not attract us, is the sign of a narrow mind, of an uncultivated intelligence. Bigotry is always ignorant, and the wise boy, who will become the wise man, tries to understand and to see the truth in ideas with which he does not agree.

- Annie Besant

Christ Which

Theosophy tries to bridge the gulf between Buddhism and Christianity by pointing to the fundamental spiritual truths on which both religions are built, and by winning people to regard the Buddha and the Christ as fellow-laborers, and not as rivals.

- Annie Besant

Die Guy

I've sat in sushi bars, really fine ones, and I know how hard this guy worked, how proud he is. I know you don't need sauce. I know he doesn't even want you to pour sauce. And I've seen customers come in and do that, and I've seen him, as stoic as he tries to remain, I've seen him die a little inside.

- Anthony Bourdain

Through Types

There are two types of warriors: the one that rides through on his horse and tries to slay everyone, and the sniper. I try to be more like the sniper. Bang. Bang. Bang. Break them down, shot by shot.

- Anthony Joshua

More Capitalist

- Anthony Scaramucci

Which Means

So long as we have failed to eliminate any of the causes of human despair, we do not have the right to try to eliminate those means by which man tries to cleanse himself of despair.

- Antonin Artaud

Love Explosive

'Banshee' is the story of a man who gets out of prison, tracks down his long-lost love, and tries to reclaim what was stolen from him years earlier by assuming the identity of a sheriff. I guess you could say it's an explosive action drama - sit down, strap in, and enjoy the ride!

- Antony Starr

Think Been

I think we've all been in the middle of doing something we cared about, when someone coming in the room and saying 'hello' was annoying. I personally can understand that, as someone who tries to create.

- Ashton Kutcher

Some Concerned

When we say that Philosophy tries to clear up the meanings of concepts we do not mean that it is simply concerned to substitute some long phrase for some familiar word.

- Charles D. Broad

Feels Accomplishes

Perhaps nobody ever accomplishes all that he feels lies in him to do; but nearly every one who tries his power touches the walls of his being.

- Charles Dudley Warner

Other Bargaining

Unfortunately, in collective bargaining one party or the other too often tries to gain an advantage - a bargain, like buying something in a store for less than it is worth.

Rebel Someone

The second someone tries to put me in a box, I will do everything to rebel against that.

- Charli XCX

Think Human Being

I think of myself as a guy who tries to write screenplays and now has tried to direct one. Anything more than that is meaningless and it gets in the way of being a real human being.

- Charlie Kaufman

Wiped Something Else

When someone takes their existing business and tries to transform it into something else - they fail. In technology that is often the case. Look at Kodak: it was the dominant imaging company in the world. They did fabulously during the great depression, but then wiped out the shareholders because of technological change.

- Charlie Munger

Magic Away

I'm honestly kind of scared of horror films. My girlfriend always tries to expose them to me. Being in a scary movie and seeing all the fake blood and stuff definitely takes away from the magic and kind of humanizes scary movies to me now, though.

- Chris Carmack

Comedy Television

American television constantly tries to co-op British comedy and create their own version of it. Most of the time it doesn't work; obviously, in the case of 'The Office,' it did. But a lot of times, it doesn't really work.

- Chris Hardwick

College Everybody

When I was broke, no one ever offered to buy me a beer. Now that I have quite a bit of money, everybody tries to buy me beers. Where were all these people back when I was in college and broke?

- Chris Moneymaker

Best Traits

The most successful politicians are the ones who embrace their best traits while turning their liabilities into loveable attributes. And yet, many a candidate tries to run as something they aren't simply because the strategy dictates it.

- Chuck Todd

Church Through

The Church doesn't censor. It tries to guide its faithful through catechism.

- Claudio Hummes

Soup Artist

In the eighteenth century, it was ladies and gentlemen and swings in a garden; today, it may be Campbell's soup cans or highway signs. There is no real difference. The artist still takes his everyday world and tries to make something out of it.

- Corita Kent

Think I Think

I think I'm just someone that just tries to get by. I'm kind of - if it was during the Second World War, I'd be a black marketeer, I think.

- Craig Ferguson

Middle Very

I bring to the table core Democratic values and can articulate them very strongly. I'm not someone who tries to claim the middle.

Better Person Within

Religion promotes the divine discontent within oneself, so that one tries to make oneself a better person and draw oneself closer to God.

- Cyril Cusack

Woman Pursue

No man or woman who tries to pursue an ideal in his or her won way is without enemies.

- Daisy Bates

Mistake Always

The man who never makes a mistake always takes orders from one who does. No man or woman who tries to pursue an ideal in his or her own way is without enemies.

- Daisy Bates

Think Everybody

For me, I think everybody with half a heart tries to do their best to do their part of good during the holiday season.

- Darren Criss

Thought More

Thought is constantly creating problems that way and then trying to solve them. But as it tries to solve them it makes it worse because it doesn't notice that it's creating them, and the more it thinks, the more problems it creates.

- David Bohm

Everyone Compare

Everyone tries to compare cooks to rock stars. I see more comparisons to the fashion world.

- David Chang

Lot Infiltrate

I'm not one who goes to a lot of fashion shows or tries to infiltrate that world, really.

- David Hallberg

Think Commercial

Think of a pitch in terms of advertising: You're trying to hook a reader the way a commercial tries to hook a detergent user.

- David Macinnis Gill

Communicate Them

When a man tries to communicate with an animal, there's a relationship between them, and you generally find this between the dog and his master.

Characteristics

Part of an actor's job, in my opinion, is adjust to the characteristics of the director and try to understand to how he tries to work.

Happy Always

He is good and wise who always speaks the truth, acts on the dictates of virtue, and tries to make others good and happy.

- Dayananda Saraswati

Give Cares

A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares.

- Debi Mazar

Move Pretenses

Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But, it's usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.

- Jim Morrison

Hidden Which

Everything I do tries to do the same thing, which is to express things that are hard to express, hidden things.

- Jim Woodring

Game Football Team

The name of the game is 'kill the quarterback.' Every football team tries to knock the guy out of the game that's handling the ball.

- Joe Namath

More Comics

The comics I hate are thieves. Nothing's more disgusting than a guy who steals another person's ideas and tries to claim them as his own.

- Joe Rogan

Read I Write

I'm not an angry person. When I write, the lawyer in me tries to make it as easy to read as possible.

- Joe Scarborough

Politics Caught

I see it all the time in politics. If a candidate gets caught in a lie, he quickly tries to change the subject by throwing more mud at his opponent. The mud keeps flying until some of the slanderous material sticks.

- Joe Scarborough

Pink Caught

Benji usually tries to match his hair with his underwear, and you know how he had the pink hair for a while well we caught him in a pink thong one day!

- Joel Madden

Think Play

I don't think anybody really super-consciously tries to develop a style to play.

- John Abercrombie

Feel Bit

That word 'funny' always makes me feel uncomfortable. Because if I were trying to be funny, I would be something like Bill Wegman - he really tries to be funny. I don't try to be funny. It's just that I feel the world is a little bit absurd and off-kilter, and I'm sort of reporting.

- John Baldessari

Doing TV

What I really like about 'Grit' - especially being the guy who goes on TV every week and says 'Never Give Up' and who truly tries to live his life to that credo - we recruited 16 people who said, 'I will never give up.' And the only way they can leave the contest is by doing the one thing they said they never would.

- John Cena

Doing Guilt

The denominational world tries to pressure its members to focus on the birth of Christ, but in doing so layers of guilt are imposed, and competition gets complicated as one Christmas program tries to outdo the other.

- John Clayton

Think Extent

I think all writing is necessarily autobiographical to a greater or lesser extent, and the less it tries to be confessional, the more likely it is that you're somehow sneaking the things you need to say in there.

- John Darnielle

Woman Offers

Generally speaking, when a woman offers unsolicited advice or tries to help a man, she has no idea of how critical and unloving he may sound to him.

- John Gray

Before Least

Every film tries to advance the state of the art, at least a little bit. Brand new techniques? A lot of them are just evolutionary: we're just building on something that's like something we've done before and just trying to do it a little bit better or make it a little bit more realistic.

- John Knoll

Guy Allowed

I returned from my last L.A. visit to find myself tipping the scales like Homer Simpson when he tries to gain enough weight to qualify as disabled to be allowed to work from home. All I was missing was his kaftan and Fat Guy Hat. So, I decided it was time to diet.

- John Niven

Explain Technical

Whenever someone like a plumber or a mechanic tries to explain something technical to me, I listen for about three seconds before it all just becomes white noise, like Charlie Brown's teacher.

- John Niven

Explain Utter

In utter loneliness a writer tries to explain the inexplicable.

- John Steinbeck

Disconnect Feels

I used to think there was something dirty about being paid for something which is a sacred thing to do. I can't disconnect the act of writing music from the act of prayer. If anyone tries to stop me working, it feels like someone is trying to stop me from taking communion.

- John Tavener

World Christian

A Christian novelist tries to describe the world as it is.

- John Updike

Racing Been

I was this guy who'd been racing around down there, on that field in 1999, running straight over people, scoring tries, winning games, having fun. And I ended up so sick I couldn't even run past a little baby.

- Jonah Lomu

Play About

When I made 'Terminator 3,' I learned something about directing actors to behave like robots. And one of the key things I learned is that if an actor tries to play a robot, he or she risks playing it mechanically in a way that makes the performance uninteresting.

- Jonathan Mostow

Art True Art

True art tries not to attract attention in order to be noticed.

- Jose Bergamin

Ashamed Some

I do not believe in political movements. I believe in personal movement, that movement of the soul when a man who looks at himself is so ashamed that he tries to make some sort of change - within himself, not on the outside.

- Joseph Brodsky

Think Perfect

I don't think there's a morally perfect way to do anything in life, but I'm not a filmmaker who tries to hide my mess.

- Joshua Oppenheimer

However Correct

Show business always tries to stereotype you, so that is something you have to fight against no matter who you are. A lot of actors who are of a minority background complain that they only get stereotyped roles, and they are 100 percent correct. However, it's also true that, no matter who you are, you get typecast as well.

- Judah Friedlander

Code Period

It is only in the case of the Priestly Code that opinions differ widely; for it tries hard to imitate the costume of the Mosaic period, and, with whatever success, to disguise its own.

- Julius Wellhausen

Give TV

That is where the irony of the film comes off, in terms of the language it employs - where he tries desperately to be a 'TV Dad,' to give advice and it's so pat it becomes ridiculous.

- Atom Egoyan

Control Doing

Writing is an incredibly creatively empowering experience for me. It is the place where nobody tries to control what I'm doing.

- B. D. Wong

Learn Some

Skateboarding teaches you how to take a fall properly. If you try to kickflip down some stairs, it might take you thirty tries - and you just learn how to take a tumble out of it without getting hurt.

- Bam Margera

Role Measured

There are those who believe that the value of a children's book can be measured only in terms of the moral lessons it tries to impose or the perfect role models it offers. Personally, I happen to think that a book is of extraordinary value if it gives the reader nothing more than a smile or two. In fact, I happen to think that's huge.

- Barbara Park

Goal Here

I hope that everyone tries to help to increase the level of the MLS and also that American players like Pulisic are here and not in Europe. That should be the goal for America. I just try to help as much as I can.

- Bastian Schweinsteiger

I Think Away

I would ask... of my supporters to get away from the personality conflicts that media tries to bring forward and focus on the real issues impacting the American people. And when you do that, I think the choice is pretty clear and that is that Hillary Clinton is far and away the superior candidate.

- Bernie Sanders

Propaganda More

Why is propaganda so much more successful when it stirs up hatred than when it tries to stir up friendly feeling?

- Bertrand Russell

Give Couple

It takes a lot of dedication to quit smoking, and whether you give up for good on your first try or have to give it a couple of tries - just keep swinging at it and you will succeed.

- Harmon Killebrew

Rewarding Teaching

Teaching is hard. It takes a lot of skill. Not everyone who tries can do it well. We need to admit that and act accordingly. We should reward and respect great teachers by paying them more, and we should stop rewarding seniority over effectiveness.

- Betsy DeVos

Benefits Works

My system works, as long as people let me do my job my way. It is not just the sequence, it is how you do it: the timing, the mirrors, the temperature, the carpet. But if people only do it 99% right, it is 100% wrong. When someone tries to mess with it, the people won't get the yoga benefits.

- Bikram Choudhury

Stupid Which

Speaking is the one trait in which woman is superior to man. Consider what happens when a couple argues. The man tries to talk to the woman. The stupid fool - he can never win.

- Harry Harlow

Leader Role

Leadership is an active role; 'lead' is a verb. But the leader who tries to do it all is headed for burnout, and in a powerful hurry.

- Bill Owens

Mother King

If a king tries to start a war, a mother should go to him and forbid it.

- Henri Rousseau

Love Enigma

I love being an enigma. Every time I'm tempted to respond to someone who tries to put me in a box, politically - you know, someone who gets on the Internet and says, you're pro-gun, or you're anti-gun - I stop and say to myself, 'This is great; this is what I wanted. I wanted to be the guy you can't figure out.'

- Brad Paisley

Will In The Past

I have said this in the past and I will continue to repeat it as long as I live: Whoever tries to hurt our national unity is my enemy until the day of judgement.

- Hussein of Jordan

Reason Hostile

I have a really beautiful life right now, so there is no reason to be hostile. I'm a husband, a father and a man who tries to do the right thing in life and in my work.

- Ice Cube

Spoon Pattern

Brit + Co tries to help women understand that they are creative and give them all sorts of opportunities to try their hand at something creative. We want it to be as easy as possible to start. If that means you uploading a pattern to Spoon flower and make wallpaper, that's great. You made it!

- Brit Morin

Which Some

But someone like Claude Chabrol tries to make a connection between the society in which we live and the social reasons which make monsters out of some people.

- Isabelle Huppert

Constitution Willing

We came to say, the Quran is our constitution, we are committed to God and his holy book. God willing, should they try to carry out their crime against the Quran, God will tear their state apart and they will become God's lesson to anyone who tries to desecrate the holy book.

- Ismail Haniyeh

Education Code

A lot of society tries to put people with disabilities into one cube, and when you think about it, many, many people have different types of disabilities, and you cannot put a code that applies to towards everyone - generally, they can be guidelines, but in the long run, interior designers and architects need more education on the subject.

- Itzhak Perlman

Deal Including

With respect to drugs, you know, there are a lot of organizations, including an enormous budget and an army at the federal government level that tries to deal with the drug problem.

- Burke Marshall

Blend Some

Every musician tries to blend in some reggae. It's the only music that brings all people together, different races, different religions.

- Burning Spear
