I think Russia is a difficult country, and it’s very difficult for people to adapt here, especially if they don’t speak the language well.
Maelle Gavet
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature’s inexorable imperative.
H. G. Wells
I think it’s always a challenge to adapt a beautiful literary work into a fresh and alive film.
Michael Stuhlbarg
No matter where I bat I try to adapt to the situation.
Moeen Ali
At my age – 31, nearly 32 – the No. 9 role is perfect for me. But it is important to adapt to whatever the team and the coach need.
Kevin-Prince Boateng
‘The Blacklist’ was really right place, right time. I read the script and met with Jon Bokenkamp, John Eisendrath, John Fox and John Davis, and we just hit it off. They understood that I was not so much trying to adapt to television, but adapt a cinematic style to the things that we were gonna do.
Joe Carnahan
Elon Musk is worried about AI apocalypse, but I am worried about people losing their jobs. The society will have to adapt to a situation where people learn throughout their lives depending on the skills needed in the marketplace.
Andrew Ng
To survive and even thrive in a changing world, nature offers another great lesson: the survivors are those who at the least adapt to change, or even better learn to benefit from change and grow intellectually and personally. That means careful listening and constant learning.
Frances Arnold
Apart from finding a first job, college graduates seem to adapt more easily than those with only a high school degree as the economy evolves and labor-market needs change.
Derek Bok
When I was 16 I took the first opportunity I had to play basketball in a different country. I flew to Europe for the first time and found myself in the small town of Macon, in France. That was the first time I lived far away from my people, from my culture. I was young and had to adapt quickly.
Serge Ibaka
When I was younger and in primary school, I’d do maybe a film a year, and I had to adapt to being away from everyone for a couple of months.
Saoirse Ronan
Every horse I get on I can adapt to. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle.
Charlotte Dujardin
I got used to being pushed down, getting my eye split open and guys talking trash.You have to learn to live with it and adapt to it. That’s what I did.
Mike Conley Jr.
I was the first judge in the ‘Indian Idol’ format. The biggest risk when you adapt a format from a country in the West is how to make it your own, so I remember at the press conference for Indian ‘X Factor,’ the press would ask, ‘Who is Simon Cowell?’ And I said ‘Why don’t you ask Simon Cowell, ‘Who is Sonu Nigam?’
Sonu Nigam
Technology advances at exponential rates, and human institutions and societies do not. They adapt at much slower rates. Those gaps get wider and wider.
Mitch Kapor
If players cannot see what’s going on in a game and adapt then they are no good and they will not win anything.
Graeme Souness
Sometimes true girl power means accepting that we are actually vulnerable and even powerless – then figuring out how to adapt and have our needs met in other ways.
Rachel Simmons
There are teams in England who play the football I like, keeping the ball on the ground, playing a quick game with one-twos, pressing their opponents high up the pitch. If one of these clubs were interested in me, I’d adapt to them well, and they could adapt to my way of playing, which isn’t so common.
What’s needed to be appreciated about Young Zwann is that he is quite receptive to changes, always willing to learn and adapt to new styles. I am sure that given his dedication, he will manage to carve his own space in the music industry.
Amaal Mallik
Since he was 17 years old in Atlanta, I think people always knew that there was something different about Key. He’s obviously been able to adapt to so many sounds and time periods in his own way, which is clear from the long list of collaborators; but he has always retained an effortlessly weird perspective.
Kenny Beats
Neymar will leave Barca fans speechless. He could become an even better player than he was during the Confederations Cup with Brazil. He’ll easily adapt to the style of the team and will be very happy there.
I feel like I can really adapt to any type of fashion sense that I want to.
But in practice master plans fail – because they create totalitarian order, not organic order. They are too rigid; they cannot easily adapt to the natural and unpredictable changes that inevitably arise in the life of a community.
Christopher Alexander
I don’t think I’m the right man to adapt a book.
Jonathan Glazer
Values are the foundation of a company. Culture is the manifestation of values – the day to day actions and behavior. Adapt tactical cultural behavior that helps you execute on your values.
Christine Tsai
We have to adapt in football.
Jordi Alba
I think in our global economy, uncertainty is ever increasing. So to accommodate to that, we need to build a dynamic economy and dynamic rules that can adapt to changing circumstances.
Myron Scholes
I’ve always been the type of guy that wants to change, adapt and morph from year to year.
Chris Jericho
You have to build up to green smoothies. Everyone loves fruit smoothies: you can add a handful of baby spinach to a fruit smoothie and may hardly even taste it. Next, try two. Slowly, your taste buds can adapt to more greens.
Michael Greger
Different coaches have different schemes, so for me, it’s about learning and being able to adjust and adapt to these coaches. It fills your toolbox.
Marc Gasol
I don’t think that the movie industry is any more ready than any other part of the information industries to adapt itself to the information age. But it’s going to go there one way or the other.
John Perry Barlow
As with Cesc Fabregas, some players who go and play for foreign clubs improve on a cultural level. It makes them grow on many levels; intellectually, because you have to learn a new language and adapt to another culture, and on a footballing level too.
Vicente del Bosque
Web series is a new format, where everything, from the writing to storytelling is different. As an actor you have to approach it differently because you have a character which can go on for a long time. It is my duty to be on my toes, understand the new technology and adapt.
Atul Kulkarni
As a singer, I float around. I’m kind of scatty, bouncing around a lot. I try to adapt to what’s going on around me in the song and the arrangement.
Daryl Hall
My game takes time to adapt to grass; grass is a little bit different.
Stan Wawrinka
Cyborg doesn’t need to eat or sleep, and whenever he encounters an issue that he’s not initially equipped to handle, his technology can transmogrify and immediately adapt to that situation.
Ray Fisher
I was 16 and went straight into the reserves. I had to adapt to the language, adapt to a new country, adapt to a style of play, all with new team-mates. All those kind of things were in my head and it was very hard.
Patrick van Aanholt
It’s nice to have a band that can adapt to whatever show we’re in, so we can play on a big stage or a house show.
Phil Elverum
In Brazil, we play quite open, but I’m doing my best to adapt as quickly as I can.
Philippe Coutinho
The chalkboards are no longer cutting it. We’ve got to adapt education at every level to this new paradigm to keep our kids competitive. Affordability of technology has to be at the forefront of everything we do.
Scott Howell
I don’t think that American drivers going to NASCAR are taking the easy way out because as I said, the racing is amazing; it’s just that it’s easier to adapt to what you grow up with. American drivers grow up with NASCAR, they know NASCAR, and that’s where they want to go.
Jacques Villeneuve
If you come to Formula One you have already proved that you are able to adapt and learn and be fast.
Kevin Magnussen
I wanted to write and direct movies and not be forced to adapt them from a bestselling book.
Francis Ford Coppola
There is no question that Korean footballers have the ability to play in Europe. The real challenge is whether they will be able to adapt to western culture.
Park Ji-sung
Those who are truly contemporary are those who neither perfectly coincide with their time nor adapt to its demands… Contemporariness, then, is that relationship with time that adheres to it through a disconnection.
Giorgio Agamben
You have to have coaches willing to adapt.
Rocky Wirtz
We should be in constant evolution and adapt to the new without ever losing our essence or our integrity.
Pedro Capo
It took me a long time to adapt to the West Coast. I lived eight years in New York before California and might have gone back. Then I discovered surfing. It’s the California equivalent of ice hockey, I guess. It gave me a real sense of place.
Rachel Morrison
For me, the most important thing is that I adapt quickly to different conditions and be consistent.
Vijay Shankar
Hope E. L .James doesn’t think I’m being a prankster. I really want to adapt her novels for the screen. Christian Grey is a writer’s dream.
Bret Easton Ellis
Yeah, you got the family dog and the white picket fence, and you just think that’s all there is. Some of us had to grow up in poverty-stricken urban neighborhoods, and we just had to adapt to our environment. I know that it’s wrong. But people act like it’s some crazy thing they never heard of. They don’t know.
Michael Vick
We moved from the East coast to the town of Spokane, Washington, when I was about 13 years old, and I did not adapt very well to the, to the style of the place, and I spent most of my time in the public library.
Irwin Rose
To be a couture designer is not only to create dresses but to adapt your line to your private customers. It is why couture is expensive. You are like a doctor.
Hubert de Givenchy
Good players always adapt well.
Ernesto Valverde
Living with anyone for many years takes skill. To keep peace in the household, couples learn to adapt to one another, hopefully in positive ways.
Diane Ackerman
A reactionary is fixed on the past and wanting to return to it; a conservative wishes to adapt what is best in the past to the changing circumstances of the present.
Roger Scruton
Just like any business is a living, breathing thing, an entrepreneur has to be able to adapt over time.
Robert Herjavec
The brain adapts very quickly. It is incredible how quickly we can adapt and what progress we can make in a very short time.
Robert Kubica
Animals can adapt to problems and make inventions, but often no faster than natural selection can do its work – the world acts as its own simulator in the case of natural selection.
Vernor Vinge
If they don’t execute well enough then there’s nothing much a coach can do. But if they do execute those plans correctly and they don’t work, then you need to be able to adapt and come up with something different.
Glenn McGrath
When you play the top sides you cannot afford to be as open as 4-4-2 can leave you. Consequently teams adapt their formation.
Chris Hughton
If you create open technology that people can use, adapt and play with, it builds capability and they teach themselves.
Charles Leadbeater
I’m not trying to keep up or adapt. I’m allowing myself to grow, evolve and create new music.
LL Cool J
An employee who’s one of hundreds, rather than one of a few, is unlikely to feel personally responsible for helping the organization adapt and change.
Gary Hamel
The failings in Afghanistan don’t fall on the shoulders of the American service personnel trying to complete their mission. The failure falls on military leadership unable to adapt to irregular warfare, and a Congress that blindly continues to fund failure.
Erik Prince
Movies are not novels, and that’s why, when filmmakers try to adapt novels, particularly long or complex novels, the result is almost always failure. It can’t be done.
Paul Auster
Whenever I write for television, I plan the story on whiteboard wallpaper in my office, using a system created by the American writer Dan Harmon. It’s remarkably simple: a character wants something; they enter a new world and adapt to it; they get what they want, re-enter the old world and change.
Graham Linehan
When you’re picking up and moving, it does create… well, I can sleep anywhere, which is really useful, it turns out, on movie sets. But what it really does is teach you how to adapt and change and fit into a new group or school, and that really is a lot like turning up to a new movie project and finding your place.
Amy Adams
The problem was Le Corbusier was a genius and an enormous artist, but he tried to resolve problems to which there is no solution. So the idea to demolish the centre of Paris in order to adapt it to the car – he drew it! – is something not even the most bloody dictators conceived.
Leon Krier
When antibiotics first came out, nobody could have imagined we’d have the resistance problem we face today. We didn’t give bacteria credit for being able to change and adapt so fast.
Bonnie Bassler
I will carry with me always the deep sense of what it feels like to be an outsider and how tough it was, how hard it was to adapt to this country.
Elaine Chao
My hypothesis is that for people who are both trained and inclined to think in rigorously logical ways, it is particularly difficult to adapt to the Soviet system of doublethink.
Masha Gessen
When you go to a club you have to adapt to the club, the country, food, but not Neymar.
Roberto Carlos
Being a professional cricketer, you have to adapt to the conditions quickly. It takes time to get rhythm when you are constantly traveling from one country to another.
Harbhajan Singh
Organisms by their design are not made to adapt too far.
Kevin Kelly
If a prince marries a foreign princess, one to the manner born, he is being snobbish and old-fashioned. If he chooses a Diana or a Fergie, glamorous outsiders, they may never adapt to the restrictions of being Royal, with calamitous results.
Michael Portillo
Theoretically, an open-plan office is a great format for a changeable work environment, a place where employees have a say over how they work and a place that can adapt to their needs and to the needs of the business.
Neil Blumenthal
The future of the U.N. will be determined by its readiness to change and adapt.
Antonio Guterres
The key thing is knowing how to adapt. Adapting to the group that you have at your disposal; adapting to the place where you’re working; adapting to the local environment. This is crucial: adaptability.
Didier Deschamps
A proud and healthy society does not equivocate when it comes to stating clearly and unequivocally what it expects of its prospective immigrants. It is for immigrants to adapt to the host nation’s values and never the other way around.
Gad Saad
The fundamental difficulty that most novelists face when they are trying to adapt their own book into a screenplay is realizing that a screenplay is a completely different way of storytelling, and it has limitations.
Barry Eisler
The difference in the Premier League is that it’s very competitive physically, so I’ll try to improve in that aspect as well and adapt as soon as possible to the style of play.
On my end, I am still surprised that many media organizations are unable to adapt to new media formats and, more importantly, new network behaviors.
Om Malik
A true champion can adapt to anything.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
When a new coach comes to a new club with new ways, new ideas, the players have to adapt.
Antonio Conte
Entrepreneurs – both women and men – need equal and fair access to finance – to create new businesses, to reach to new markets, and to adapt to climate change.
Arancha Gonzalez
Give up the thought that you have control. You don’t. The best you can do is adapt, anticipate, be flexible, sense the environment and respond.
Frances Arnold
The best leaders adapt and are flexible with their situations. I try to be the same.
Marcus Mariota
At heart, I’m a dude from South Central Los Angeles. We roll the way we roll because we had survival tactics; we had to learn how to adapt. That’s just me.
John Singleton
We know growing technological developments in artificial intelligence, automation and big data mean that democratic socialism in the 21st century must adapt to such a rapidly changing world.
Clive Lewis
It felt like the first thing, but when I first started out, I got a job adapting a book by Russell Banks called ‘Rule Of The Bone.’ I didn’t do a very good job. I didn’t really know what I was doing in general, let alone how to adapt a book.
Paul Thomas Anderson
I was one of the youngest world champions in boxing. It is not that I was not prepared for it. I was just so young and it happened so quickly. I had to adapt to it. Live up to the hype. It was hard.
Gervonta Davis
You are cruising along, and then technology changes. You have to adapt.
Marc Andreessen
That’s one of the cool things I love about television, is it’s able to evolve and able to adapt and the actors and the performers are actually a more integral part of the process. So they’re informing not just the characters, but the story.
Matt Duffer
I got a sneak peek into the functioning of the film industries of the south through Telugu cinema. This industry has helped me understand how to adapt to various styles of filmmaking. It’s been liberating.
Tridha Choudhury
A change is always difficult for a player and his family. You are starting from zero and you have to adapt to a new league.
The evolution of Parkour sort of happens with time and age as you change, and the body has a certain memory of Parkour. There is a sort of thing that remains intrinsic, but then the choreography will adapt to whatever the necessity of each particular film needs.
David Belle
It is remarkable how easily children and grown-ups adapt to living in a dictatorship organised by lunatics.
A. N. Wilson
As a pop artist by definition, you have to learn to adapt.
Pedro Capo
We have to adapt and overcome, that’s all we can do.
Frank Knight
Life clearly does more than adapt to the Earth. It changes the Earth to its own purposes. Evolution is a tightly coupled dance, with life and the material environment as partners. From the dance emerges the entity Gaia.
James Lovelock
Growing up not being the biggest guy around, you learn different ways of playing tennis. I’ve learned to adapt.
Alex de Minaur
I like to adapt to each city. I like to come up with a concept for each space I do. The vibe in L.A. is a little sexier than New York, so the colors are a little different.
Rande Gerber
I think a fighter should be ready and able to adapt to anything that is in front of him in the ring.
Gervonta Davis
It’s difficult to adapt to Barcelona.
Ousmane Dembele
The climate crisis is upon us, and its effects will only become more apparent in the years to come. We need to both adapt to this reality and continue to take bold action to fight it.
Ned Lamont
Perhaps if you are in support functions waiting on the warfighters to spell out the specifics of what you are to do, you can avoid the consequences of not reading. Those who must adapt to overcoming an independent enemy’s will are not allowed that luxury.
Jim Mattis
Every species becomes extinct; at some point, we will go extinct. The question is, as Homo sapiens, are we going to be able to adapt to the change that we’re actually part of? We’re causing such dramatic changes to the planet, so yes, you do stop and think, ‘I wonder where we’re headed.’
Louise Leakey
I can adapt to any situation.
Jalen Brunson
I’ve learnt to adapt on the pitch and, when I think back, also in front of goal.
Life in England was a bit difficult. It is not easy for a South American. Some people get on fine, and for others, it is harder to adapt.
Angel Di Maria
I’m pretty versatile. I’m able to adapt to an environment and the way I view things based on who I’m with.
Jake T. Austin
A friend of mine, Neil Gaiman, had the film rights to his book ‘Stardust’ bought by producer Matthew Vaughn and suggested I adapt it for the screen.
Jane Goldman
Change does not mean you will win with a new coach and achieve victories, but rather it causes instability in the team as the new coach needs some time for the players to adapt his new plans, which are always different than the previous coach.
Fabio Cannavaro
It makes it easier to adapt a book that is popular with kids because of how excited they are about the project; you don’t get the criticisms you would get with other projects.
Dylan O’Brien
Toy time is holding steady, but kids are spending more time on digital, and toys need to adapt.
Margo Georgiadis
Brains are tricky and adaptable organs. For all the ‘neuroplasticity’ allowing our brains to reconfigure themselves to the biases of our computers, we are just as neuroplastic in our ability to eventually recover and adapt.
Douglas Rushkoff
If you’re in big-time situations all the time – like for me, high school was big-time situations, college, big time situations – you adapt.
Robert Horry
There’s a lot of thought that bitcoin will be a huge threat to existing tax systems or existing ways governments have of controlling currency flows across their border. I personally think governments will do what governments have always done: they will adapt.
Gavin Andresen
It’s very hard to adapt something. You end up changing it too much to make a good movie out of it. I prefer to work with things that are custom made for my kind of animation.
Nick Park
I read ‘The Last Wish’ and really loved it. But I never would have called myself a fantasy writer before this. I’ve done some comic book shows, I’ve done a lot of drama. So when I read the book I loved it but never thought I should adapt it personally.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich
Even if I was in prison, I could be free in my head. I can adapt easily.
Azzedine Alaia
I have to know the characteristics of the players. I have to adapt myself to the characteristics of the championship and the players. Now I study my players.
Maurizio Sarri
I can adapt to change easily, but I’m not a fan of it.
Ashley Wagner
Now with our Software Developer Kit (SDK), any developer can embed Emotion AI into the apps, games, devices, and digital experiences they are building, so that these can sense human emotion and adapt. This approach is rapidly driving more ubiquitous use of Emotion AI across a number of different industries.
Rana el Kaliouby
You can’t underestimate rest. Sometimes in tennis we don’t realize that to rest your body is as important as it is to practice. We are traveling so much, all year, in different conditions, different courts, different surfaces, different balls – so we always have to adapt.
Stan Wawrinka
I think you learn from every experience, and you have to continue to adapt.
Tom Thibodeau
When you make a documentary, you have to adapt to what reality imposes upon you.
Hirokazu Kore-eda
I must learn to adapt, or else I’ll fall victim to the negative statistics surrounding retired athletes.
Spencer Paysinger
Russian humor is to adapt or make some sense or nonsense out of the insanity of their lives.
Ian Frazier
I’m not a really good classical guitarist by any means, but what I learned from this is a way of working very slowly on solo pieces and I enjoyed working on these pieces of John’s. They were not written for solo guitar but a lot of them were easy to adapt.
Marc Ribot
I think the F2 tyres are probably one of the hardest things to adapt to, harder than the Formula One Pirellis were to get used to.
Lando Norris
I’m too old to adapt to somebody else’s ways.
Claudia Christian
It’s important to go into the grocery store with a plan and a list. But it’s a skeleton – you need to know how to deviate from it and adapt it to what ingredients are available and fresh.
Antoni Porowski
The transition from football to futsal is very difficult, as this is a shorter and faster version. We have no time to think, but I’m trying to adapt the best I can.
Some things are difficult to adapt to.
Ahmet Davutoglu
The learning curve, and the things that you have to adapt to on a daily basis in the UFC, is pretty crazy. It’s a huge burden for anybody to have: not just the fighting itself but learning how to deal with the other responsibilities.
Rose Namajunas
Bowlers have to adapt all the time.
Jasprit Bumrah
When people note that more and more voters are cutting their landline phones and that more and more people are refusing to pick up phone calls from numbers they don’t know, they are identifying problems that the polling industry has long struggled with and continue to try to adapt to.
Kristen Soltis Anderson
I am constantly asked, ‘What’s the difference between acting in the theater and acting in film?’ The only answer I can give is the space – you adapt to the space. But acting is acting.
William Hurt
The things I have sold to film, I’ve sold because I was happy to rent out the right to adapt those works. Some things, I haven’t sold to film, because I was less interested in having no control over the adaptation.
Warren Ellis
Changes have taken place since year one. When Caruso left, that was a big change. We’ve been able to adapt nicely. It’s given us new opportunities for different characters and story lines.
Dennis Franz
I see N.Y. hip-hop like I see N.Y. streets. N.Y. streets are grimy; it’s a grind. N.Y. rappers are hustlers – whatever sound is in, we can adapt to that; there’s nothing wrong with that.
Adapt to yourself, bro. What I wanna say is don’t let nobody tell you that you should stay in your lane, bro.
Ski Mask the Slump God
You need to adapt your game for what the team needs.
Faf de Klerk
We’re the only creature God ever created that doesn’t want to adapt. We want to make it stand still. And one thing that’s constant is nature is constantly changing.
Don Young
People forget actors can adapt and change their appearance. In this industry, people sometimes cast to type, or as close to type as possible, but actors are a lot more versatile than you think!
Sam Heughan
The digitally native vertical brand (DNVB) is born on the Internet. It is aimed squarely at millennials and digital natives. It doesn’t have to adapt to the future; it is the future. It doesn’t need to get younger customers. It starts with younger customers.
Andy Dunn
It is urgent to shift from a traditional, authoritative, rote educational approach to a project-based and experiential approach. Specific hard skills are fundamental, but is even more important that students ‘learn how to learn’ and focus on crucial soft skills such as flexibility and the ability to adapt to change.
Alain Dehaze
I have a temperament that doesn’t adapt well to politics. It’s because I speak my mind so much.
Joaquim Barbosa
I’m easy to adapt to. I’m not going to come in and say I need this shot, I need the ball here or there. Doesn’t matter.
Bradley Beal
I’ve learned in my life that things change. Seasons changes, times change. We take different jobs. Our children grow. So, we have to study the people in our lives and adapt to them, because when we do that, we get more out of our relationships.
Victoria Osteen
We live in a world where we just have to adapt. You can’t sit around and cry. You’ve got to get a move on, that’s the way the world is.
Liz Cambage
As Governor, I’ve worked to solve problems the New Hampshire way – bringing together Democrats, Republicans and Independents to help hard-working Granite Staters adapt to our changing economy so that everyone has the opportunity to get ahead and stay ahead.
Maggie Hassan
The thing about living with any disability is that you adapt; you do what works for you.
Stella Young
Whether you’re in a blockbuster or an art film, you have to be able to adapt.
Lea Seydoux
I think the consistency in my performances, my ability to adapt to different coaches, systems or competitions work in my favour.
Wissam Ben Yedder
If you look at the best players around the world, they sum up what people are trying to do and adapt to it and are willing to change and have the confidence to change what they are doing to get the right outcome.
Steve Smith
Whatever happens, I’m going to adapt to it. I always been like that all my life.
Anuel AA
Most of the games are decided by a small margin. That shows the intensity and the competitiveness of the English league. Everyone knows here the competition is ferocious. It’s a bit different than the Portuguese league. But I’m going to try to adapt to this league as quick as possible.
I don’t think my body’s gonna go to hell if I train for performance. It might change a little and adapt, but I like being strong.
John Cena
It is impossible to talk about slowing climate change without talking about reducing CO2 emissions. Equally, it is impossible to talk about adapting to climate change without considering how we will feed ourselves. And it is out of the question that we can adapt agriculture without conserving crop diversity.
Cary Fowler
At KPMG, we believe that companies with inclusive and diverse cultures are better positioned to adapt, grow, and thrive in a changing business environment.
Lynne Doughtie
Basketball players can adapt to any situation.
Michael Carter-Williams
Snapchat works because using a selfie is way easier than texting or tweeting. Stories should adapt to the medium and do so without cheapening the story.
Om Malik
In France one must adapt oneself to the fragrance of a urinal.
Gertrude Stein
We know from research that the reading circuit is not given to human beings through a genetic blueprint like vision or language; it needs an environment to develop. Further, it will adapt to that environment’s requirements – from different writing systems to the characteristics of whatever medium is used.
Maryanne Wolf
As a kid I had buck teeth and braces and acne. I hated what I saw. I’m still not comfortable, but that’s why I change and adapt the way I look.
Marilyn Manson
To achieve success in this game you need specific talents and attributes. But we also have to adapt to the fact that we work in the public eye, with all its pros and cons.
Philipp Lahm
I’ve always said to everyone that ever worked for me, if you get too dug in on a position, the facts change, and you don’t change to adapt to the facts, you will never be successful.
Henry Paulson
You have to adapt and find your niche, in terms of the type of player you can become, both on and off the pitch. I always knew I’d have no chance against a 1.90m, 90kg defender in a duel, so the key is to avoid these situations altogether. You have to pick your space and time.
Thomas Muller
Good musicals, a strange world, seem so easy. People say, ‘Ohhh, it’s magic.’ Nothing’s magic. A thing doesn’t jell. Adapt. Change the rhythm. Shorten the scene. Rewrite the character. Maneuver the waters. Seeming easy is why so many shows aren’t good.
James Lapine
China will continue to adopt multiple measures to advance the reform and opening up of its financial sector so that its financial market can better adapt to financial modernization and globalization.
Xi Jinping
Access to information, to music or any kind of culture, is getting faster and faster and more streamlined. At each juncture, people are thrown into tumult and have to adapt or die.
Colson Whitehead
The Chinese government clearly does pay attention to public opinion expressed on the Internet – the extent to which they choose to adapt their practices based on it, or ignore it, seems to vary.
Rebecca MacKinnon
One of the first places where I started to respond to song lyrics was in reggae music. A lot of what I was responding to were references to the Old Testament. It was not that I had to adapt the lyrics to the sound. Reggae and the Old Testament are bound up together. There wasn’t anything that I had to do.
Don’t tie yourself down to one workout, as your muscles quickly adapt to a certain style of training, so you’ll see less results over time. The same can be said about cardio and your diet.
Hafthor Bjornsson
I’ll adapt to any situation. I’ve been adapting to different situations my whole life.
D’Angelo Russell
I realise I have to adapt my game a bit at international level; that the combativeness in the Premier League is a little bit different at international level.
Scott Parker
Coaches are going to adapt to whatever the rules are. The rules certainly change strategy.
Stan Van Gundy
Life does more than adapt to the Earth. It changes the Earth to its own purposes.
James Lovelock
Ancelotti immediately understood me and put me in the right situation to adapt quickly. I was 18 and, at that age, it is difficult. He helped me a lot off the field, too. He advised me on how to behave. You can say he was a father to me in the footballing world.
Marco Verratti
‘Adapt and overcome’ is my new motto.
Jack Osbourne
You have to have something in your head to understand the Barcelona play. You have to adapt as quickly as possible.
Ousmane Dembele
Players have to adapt nowadays, and if you have a good football brain, if you can read the game, you can manage it.
Ashley Young
We’re always thinking of different things to be on the cutting edge of what’s entertaining or what’s hot on Twitter or social media or even society in general. I’ve had little goals here and there. But that’s the main goal. Always changing, always be prepared to adapt.
Kofi Kingston
I’m listening to Tame Impala, Mac DeMarco, Frank Ocean, Childish Gambino. I’m just trying to just get as many different inspirations as I can. I love artists that can adapt and have different styles.
Rich Brian
When I moved from Independiente to Atletico Madrid, I was only 18, and I found it hard to adapt. But what surprised me most about moving to England was how fast the game was. I like it, but it is so quick.
Sergio Aguero
To me, the songs that I’m most thankful to have been a part of creating are the songs that are able to adapt and change over the years and that mean different things to you at different periods of time in your life.
Laura Jane Grace
What has truly impeded ESPN from overcoming its financial mistakes and inability to adapt to technological advances? The decadelong culture war ESPN lost to Deadspin, a snarky, politically progressive sports blog launched by Gawker’s Nick Denton in 2005.
Jason Whitlock
Perhaps I can say that I am a bit astute, that I can adapt to circumstances, but it is also true that I am a bit naive. Yes, but the best summary, the one that comes more from the inside and I feel most true is this: I am a sinner whom the Lord has looked upon.
Pope Francis
Abusive relationships go on and on. You’re in it for so long that it can almost be impossible to see it for what it is. That just becomes your life. We get used to and adapt.

When doing a remake, you’re on safer territory. You know you cannot go absolutely wrong. But how right it goes depends on various factors like casting and the way you adapt the film.
Boney Kapoor
Almost every collection I do has 200 different references. I don’t have two of the same coat, two of the same dress. I have it in one color, in one fabric. I’ve tried to adapt the culture of couture, and the know-how and the heritage, but I try to update it.
Alber Elbaz
I enjoy adapting my own work, or anybody’s work. I like to adapt books.
Joseph Wambaugh
I was an executive producer. I’ve done a lot of jobs and I think each one helps you get closer to what you want as a director. It also helps you – when you work with different filmmakers – to absorb, to adapt, to know what to watch out for, to know pitfalls.
Zoya Akhtar
The presentations and conceptions of the average man of the world are formed and dominated, not by the full and pure desire for knowledge as an end in itself, but by the struggle to adapt himself favourably to the conditions of life.
Ernst Mach
The second season is always easier than the first one. When you change, it’s always more difficult. You have to adapt to the way your team plays; you have to adapt to your team-mates, to the league, to the referees.
Bernardo Silva
If you change and adapt your persona, you are seen as inauthentic; if you stay the angry young man, you fade from attention or seem tiresome.

Michael Laudrup
If I can adapt to different tactics I think I will be a better player.
Adama Traore
Whenever you’re looking at new ways to get in shape, first you have to decide what you want. Do you want a more muscular look, or do you want to slim down and appear more toned and ripped? I adapt my training and diet with each role I do, depending on the image I want to convey.
Scott Adkins
Wherever you’re from, you adapt to your environment. It definitely made my music a little bit more explicit. Because I really was in North Philly, I listened to State Property and stuff. Everything my dad listened to, I listened to.
Lil Uzi Vert
I really like being thrown into the works. Many actors, I have found, have this as a common trait. We had to, as children, adapt to various situations with either a military family or things like that.
Adelaide Clemens
Changes to weather patterns that move crop production areas around – we’ll adapt to that. It’s an engineering problem, and it has engineering solutions.
Rex Tillerson
You just have to adapt to what is needed at that moment, whereas as coaches are going crazy, because they’re used to having and following a schedule. Everything’s laid out in front of them on when they’re going to practice and when they’re going to take a plane to this city.
Danny Ainge
With Lille, we could have gone to the South of France, and people wouldn’t have recognised us. But at Chelsea, the players are at another level. Everything has changed – the language, the country – but it is up to me to adapt.

Lolly Adefope

That image is now associated with the Portuguese coaches: the ability to adapt, to arrive and win, to assemble good teams and good structures is undoubtedly one of our brands and I think that’s the main fact for which we are most respected around the world.
Andre Villas-Boas
As human beings, we have the blessing and the curse that we’re able to adapt to almost anything. No matter how extreme the circumstances you’re in, they become normal.

To adapt a play into a movie, you have to change it.

Elodie Yung
Our farmers and ranchers constantly evolve and adapt to the conditions surrounding them, and if provided better and faster connectivity, the development of new technologies on the farm will rival any other sector.
Abigail Spanberger

Norman Lloyd
You never know for sure whether a player will adapt to a new country until he gets there.
Diego Forlan
Going to Watford at such a young age and leaving everyone behind and being around new people was very different for me. Adapting was a challenge. I was staying in a boarding school and in a different culture that I wasn’t used to. It was very hard to adapt, build confidence and change my attitude.
Jadon Sancho
I’m French – it’s less important. Meaning, I remain a Frenchman in America, but I adapt to American culture. I feel good there – but I’m still a foreigner.
Olivier Martinez
By now, we all know that our every move online can be tracked and traced, and that, ideally, services learn from and adapt to customers based on an artful deployment of that data.

Victoria Beckham
I know that if I have come to Britain, I must adapt, and I will try to.
Nuno Espirito Santo
Capitalism has proved its ability to adapt: at a time when so many younger people quite legitimately feel that the economic system doesn’t work for them, big business appealing to their sense of idealism is a savvy move.

Gwyneth Paltrow
If a translation doesn’t have obvious writing problems, it may seem quite all right at first glance. We readers, after all, quickly adapt to the style of a translator, stop noticing it, and get caught up in the story.
Lydia Davis
Churches, by the very reason of their structures, are monolithic and do not adapt easily. But in many cases, they, too, have allowed themselves to become allied or even part of an unjust establishment or system.
Sean MacBride
When you change teams, cities or countries it’s obvious there’s a period of adaption, but some players can adapt quicker than others.

Nolan Ryan
If you see a gaggle of teenagers walking towards you, you tend not to make eye contact, because you know they’re going to recognise you. You learn to adapt: 99.999 per cent of people aren’t looking to be harmful or unpleasant; they just want something, a photograph or an autograph.

Ron Ben-Israel
I had proposals from England, but I believe they would have had to adapt to my style.
Mario Mandzukic

Javier Mascherano
Many European guys go to the N.H.L. at a young age, even without knowing English. But they quickly adapt to new conditions, another game, a new country. They are also young, receptive, can move mountains.
Jaromir Jagr
Every situation I’ve been in in my career, you just sort of adapt, and figure out where you can be effective.

Michel Faber
In an Ashes series you have to adapt quickly to the conditions and your rivals. If you don’t, you get found out.

And I also am very nervous about implants. You know, I’m just nervous about all that. So I could still do it. I could think about it. But I needed to adapt to myself.

Vic Reeves
You’ve got to adapt – or get out.
John Corabi

Nick Hornby
It’s always a challenge to adapt a novel for screen, a visual medium.
Vikramaditya Motwane
Unfortunately, injuries are part of the game and you have to adapt, keep faith, trust and never give up.

Lindsey Buckingham
If Arsene Wenger came down to League Two he would have to adapt, he couldn’t work in the same way he works at Arsenal.

Deontay Wilder
There is nobody called Test bowler, one day bowler or T20 bowler. It just how you adapt and make a difference to your own game.

Foreign managers, sometimes it’ll take them time to adapt or for the players to adapt to them. It’s something that is just one of those things in football.
Danny Rose
I was on this weird, wild goose chase where I thought I might try to adapt a Willa Cather book. And if you don’t know Willa Cather, she was an author in the early 1900s. And for a while, she wrote these books about New York high society.
Lee Isaac Chung
My theory in the ’90s was that I didn’t want to take a Jane Austen book I loved and reduce it to a 90-minute movie. The Emma Thompson-Ang Lee ‘Sense and Sensibility’ was beautiful, but other ones, I didn’t think justice was being done. It’s not a slam dunk to adapt these books.
Whit Stillman

Bobby Roode
I always want to give my best and do the best I can. I know when I have sung my best and when I haven’t. There can be stresses and hassles with time travel and press attention. I just have to adapt and find a way of dealing with it.

In terms of being able to adapt to any situation on any given night, in any given moment and that just comes with nearly twenty years of experience and paying attention to the guys that I’ve tried to emulate throughout my career.

Hope Solo

Neil Harbisson
I am always trying to learn and adapt.
Joe Hart
Of course, Minneapolis, we think, ‘Oh well, it’s cold there, lethally cold.’ But the reality is you adapt to weather… Humans are consummately adaptable creatures.

Anderson Silva
