She crushed it, telling herself she was going to add Big in front of her Idiot tattoo.
Nalini Singh
The Lord says, ‘Whoever has, to him shall be given’ (Mt. 13:12). He will give, then, to those who have; that is to say, if they use freely and cheerfully what they have received, He will add to and perfect His gifts.
Saint Augustine
The primary opportunity is to use a model or paradigm for describing ADD that’s not disease-based and doesn’t imply brain damage or what many children interpret as some type of retardation…a person must have hope; this model restores self-esteem, thus empowering individuals to change.
Thom Hartmann
I believe that if the people of this nation fully understood what Congress has done to them over the last 49 years, they would move on Washington; they would not wait for an election….It adds up to a preconceived plan to destroy the economic and social independence of the United States!
George W. Malone
In years to come, he would be a giver of bread, not a stealer – proof again of the contradictory human being. So much good, so much evil. Just add water.
Markus Zusak
What can you possibly add to a mind that’s full, especially one that’s full of itself.
Joseph Joubert
Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world.
The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son.
The only requirement is to believe in Him.
The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life.
Corrie Ten Boom
According to the supermarkets, there is no such thing as “out of season.” Berries in the middle of February? Why not? Seafood flown in from Japan? Sure. While it all adds up to appetizing and varied meals throughout the year, regardless of the weather, it comes with a price tag – both ethical and financial.
Homaro Cantu
I love this book! There are very few cookbooks published today that add something truly new and distinctive to the literature of food and cooking. Jennifer McLagan’s Fat is a smart, thoughtful book that ultimately asks us to understand our food better.
Michael Ruhlman
I have ADD or something. Even when I am doing something, it’s me on the computer, I’m painting and I’m writing music. I have to rotate what I’m doing every 15 minutes.
Charlyne Yi
An economy that adds value through information, ideas, and intelligence-the Three I Economy-offers a way out of the apparent clash between material growth and environmental resources.
Charles Handy
New Orleans is like my blood; it’s not going anywhere. And then I just take different things that I’ve learned over the years and add them to what I’m doing with the natural New Orleans sound.
Trombone Shorty

Motsi Mabuse
I’ve always been trying to add stuff to my game.
Khris Middleton
Dick Gregory and Richard Pryor laid the groundwork for us as Indian-Americans. How can we add our story to their groundwork is the question.
Hasan Minhaj

Neil Gaiman
The astronomer who catalogues the stars cannot add one atom to the universe; the poet can call an universe from the atom.
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
I should add that it is open to debate whether what we call the writing of history these days is truly scientific.
Lion Feuchtwanger

Richard Branson
Repealing the estate tax won’t create jobs, it won’t boost GDP, and it won’t add efficiency to the market. Instead, repealing the estate tax will simply add to the debt, hurt our ability to build a stronger economy and worsen economic inequality.
John Delaney
I’ve always thought that one of the the great thing about physics is that you can add more digits to any numberВ and see what happens and nobody can stop you.
Randall Munroe
All the translations of a poem in all possible languages may add nuance to nuance and, by a kind of mutual retouching, by correcting one another, may give an increasingly faithful picture of the poem they translate, yet they will never give the inner meaning of the original.
Henri Bergson
The camera adds a certain sheen to things. Something about being frozen in time really makes things sparkle.
Brandon Stanton
I have OCD mixed with ADD; you try living with that.
Justin Timberlake
When a woman wants to look festive, she should add some shine, sheen or sparkle to her outfit, like a metallic clutch, an embellished shoe, or a blingy statement necklace.

Joanna Lumley
Shall I add a man to my collection?
Patricia A. McKillip
It rarely adds anything to say, “In my opinion” – not even modesty. Naturally a sentence is only your opinion; and you are not the Pope.
Paul Goodman
The game of discontent has its rules, and he who disregards them cheats. It is not permitted to you to wish to add another’s advantages or possessions to your own; you are permitted only to wish to be another.
Ambrose Bierce
I, for one, love kids in my romance novels. When done right, kids add so much conflict. Not just of the ‘interruption on the way to the bedroom’ variety. But conflict about commitment and insecurity.
Molly O’Keefe
To Jane Jacob’s three traditional urban values of civic space, human scale and diversity, the current environmental imperative adds two more: conservation and regionalism.
Peter Calthorpe
Whoever wants to set a good example must add a grain of foolishness to his virtue: then others can imitate and yet at the same time surpass the one they imitate-which human beings love to do.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I know it is difficult to play in a big club like Manchester United as a No. 10 because you know how many goals you have to score to play there. So I thought I had to add something to my game. I had to give more options to the manager.
Ander Herrera
Every man has a purpose, something special that he can do better than anyone else. Your work is to discover this, then give yourself to it. The extent to which you use your skills to add to the world determines your happiness.
Deepak Chopra
If the U.S. doubled its total immigration and prioritized bringing in new workers, it could add more than half a percentage point a year to expected GDP growth.
Kevin Hassett
The flattery is nice, but awards don’t add up to writing quality songs.
Chantal Kreviazuk
I like the old school, then I add the new school, and I got a concoction of greatness. I can’t miss; you can’t miss with that.
Bernard Hopkins
Research is always a very necessary part of my process because all of my books to this point have been historical. Time spent in the library adds to one’s wealth as a writer or artist.
Floyd Cooper
It’s amazing if you just listen to people. They tell you all the time things that you can do for them, without even realizing what they’re doing. I’ve learned to take notice of those things and if it’s something that I feel God wants me to do, then I try to do that to add joy to their life.
Joyce Meyer
If fact were enough, you could take a photo of the subject. Unlike the sensitive observer, however, the camera never selects or comments, never adds or subtracts.
Paul Strisik
… All ideas need to be heard, because each idea contains one aspect of the truth. By examining that aspect, we add to our own idea of the truth. Even ideas that have no truth in them whatsoever are useful because by disproving them, we add support to our own ideas.
John Stuart Mill
If you have religious faith, very good, you can add on secular ethics, then religious belief, add on it, very good. But even those people who have no interest about religion, okay, it’s not religion, but you can train through education.
Dalai Lama
The day-to-day discomforts of prison life, combined with the big-picture realities of mass incarceration, do not add up to a party.
W. Kamau Bell
All have dreams, Life for them, they add meaning to LIFE. The only thing that differentiates us from other beings is the fact that US can dream.
Sujit Lalwani
There’s a game called Checkout where there’s grocery items and it’s how much you think the manufacturer’s suggested retail price is and we add up your total, then your total has to be within $2 of the regular total. I don’t think I could ever win that game.
Drew Carey
If you don’t like the NRA, get a million black people to join. Go to the convention. Realize that this ain’t white people in hoods, just regular working class people like you that are probably going to be friendly and engage you. And then add your thoughts to the agenda.
Killer Mike
Of course, we would love to know more about the exact moment of Big Bang, but interposing an outside intelligence does nothing to add to that knowledge, as we still know nothing about the creation of that intelligence.
Richard Dawkins
The key to doing eight shows a week is maintaining your energy. Getting as much sleep as possible and a big, healthy breakfast is the best way to make that happen. My mainstay is granola cereal, a banana, and soy milk. I also try to add a side of fresh fruit with yogurt and peanut butter toast.
Rory O’Malley
Be a good ancestor. Stand for something bigger than yourself. Add value to the Earth during your sojourn.
Marian Wright Edelman
When I – when I was going to school, I knew how to read, write, add and subtract and I – I basically said, ‘What else do I need? I’m never going to be able to go to college. I’m not going to be able to afford to go to college. I’m not going to be able to get a scholarship.’
Mark Wahlberg
When the world changes, you have to adapt and change with it. It’s not just death and taxes that we can always count on in life…. add ‘change’ to that mix. No matter what, tomorrow will always be a little bit different than today.
Christopher Jones
It is futile to try to make the universe add up. But I guess we must go on anyhow.
Philip K. Dick
Not every time someone gets hit these days with a kick, they don’t necessarily take a flat-back. Maybe less flat-backs add time to a career, but if they miss some of it, it just seems like you’re done.
Sean Waltman
Sooner or later that which is now life shall be poetry, and every fair and manly trait shall add a richer strain to the song.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I don’t know if younger poets read a lot of, you know, the poets – the established poets. There was a lot of pretty boring stuff to sort of put up with and to add to, to make something vital from.
Robert Adamson
You must not be afraid of small bits of silence. To use it well is the height of confidence and skill for a comedian. It increases the tension in a good way and adds contrast like a curveball complements the fastball of a good pitcher.
Franklyn Ajaye
Dried porcini add a substantial, deep flavour to otherwise more neutral vegetables. I use them in risottos, mashed roots and winter soups.
Yotam Ottolenghi
One important idea I hope is reflected in ‘The Poe Shadow’ is that fiction can add as much to history as nonfiction does.
Matthew Pearl
To be thankful for what we grasp exceeding our proportion is to add hypocrisy to injustice.
Charles Lamb
I am lucky to have the greatest band and when you add a symphony orchestra to the mix it brings all of my songs to a whole new level. I wouldn’t say I really change what I do but, having those talented musicians behind me, along with my band, really makes the songs so much bigger and more fun to sing.
Olivia Newton-John
Instead of trying to manufacture feelings, use the way you already feel. Or at least add that in.
Geena Davis
I always tried to be an all-around player. In college, I felt like I needed to add to my game to get to another level, to get to the NBA. The NBA has really turned to positionless basketball, so it was very important to me to have an all-around game so I could stand out in front of other guys.
Kyle Kuzma
To worry is to add another hazard.
Amelia Earhart
My missus likes my steak and coleslaw. My coleslaw’s not pure handmade, the cabbage will be ready to go but I’ll add stuff to it.
Aaron Mooy
For me, it is very important to control a situation in defence. You can always score goals, but you have to add stability in the defence.
Bastian Schweinsteiger
I started out in theatre and I definitely have wanted to add extra musical elements to my music with both imagery and text.
Glenn Branca
What happens with a lot of leaders is that their leadership style is like ADD; they are all over the place with different ideas. They could be driving one idea forward but then move on to something else too soon.
Henry Cloud
I don’t walk off and come back for encores. I figure I can add four weeks to my life that way.
Colin Hay
Matching your hat to your shoe to your bag, or your necklace to your earrings, has a tendency to look dated. Mixing up your accessories adds interest to an outfit, and can make you look much more modern and polished.
Stacy London
You were created to add to life on earth, not just take from it. God wants you to give something back.
Rick Warren
The Pigtronix Envelope Phaser pedal is a definite ‘must have’ for your Funk recipe cookbook……it adds definite Funkaliciousness to your WOO stew.
Bernie Worrell
My brother has ADD, which is weird because he drives a Ford Focus. I told my brother that joke but he didn’t laugh because he got distracted by my shoe strings.
Zach Galifianakis
A new yogi doesn’t handstand on their first try, and a new teacher doesn’t start out as a headliner. Be patient, and trust it’s all going to add up and unfold in due time.
Kathryn Budig
Pro-Tip: Ask for one clear action per panel. Don’t ask your artist to do two, three, or more things in a shot. You want those? Add more panels.
Dan Slott
Tolling… has a place. We’re not going to toll our way to prosperity as a country. It is a tool that can be used in some instances, for example, to add capacity and to pay for that capacity privately. But I don’t think it is a complete solution to how we deal with our surface transportation issues.
Anthony Foxx
I think that under ordinary circumstances (i.e., neither person is famous), it’s already hard enough to make a long-term romantic relationship work, but add fame to the calculus.
Christine Sneed
Riza: Without his Alchemy he’s just… Jean: A little brat who swears a lot Maes: An arrogant pipsqueak Roy: Useless. Just useless Alphonse: Sorry big brother, I don’t know how to add to that… Ed *starts to cry*: YOU’RE ALL PICKING ON ME!!!
Hiromu Arakawa
There’s so many people to see. So many people to check up on and add to your collection.
Elvis Costello
Thirty days is just about the right amount of time to add a new habit or subtract a habit – like watching the news – from your life.
Matt Cutts
Simplicate, and add lightness!
William Bushnell Stout
I’m excited to play any character that is based in reality. And I’d be even more excited if I can add a comic element to my role.
Shenaz Treasury
There is no doubt that many expensive national projects may add to our prestige or serve science. But none of them must take precedence over human needs. As long as Congress does not revise its priorities, our crisis is not just material, it is a crisis of the spirit.
Nelson Rockefeller
Poetry can add its grain to an accumulation of consciousness against the idea that there is no alternative – that we’re just in the great flow of capitalism and it can never be any different – that this is human destiny, this is human nature.
Adrienne Rich
My name at birth was Carol Joan Klein. It would take me five decades to appreciate my surname and the history that came with it. Along the way, I would add an ‘e’ to Carol and acquire several more surnames.
Carole King
A straight dark-green Manchu gown, with black trimmings, is my favorite. For it just about takes off those fifteen pounds I don’t need and adds those three inches I do.
Buwei Yang Chao
I have extreme ADD, and I’m into all kinds of stuff.
One of the jobs of a writer is to add nuance and ambiguity to that straight line that people often draw to very specific kinds of heroism. Most of us don’t get to be Snooki. For most of us heroism has to be in our everyday lives.
John Green
Women face enough pressures and challenges in a workplace that is still depressingly biased against a female’s success. Add to that, the fact that the very thing many women I know find most rewarding (having kids) is now frowned upon.
Mika Brzezinski
Stop worrying about what you don’t know. Focus instead on what you already know even if they don’t add up to much. Because you never know what you can achieve with what you already know until you take actions!
Mark Foo
We must not inquire too curiously into the absolute value of literature. Enough that it amuses and exercises us. At least it leaves us where we were. It names things, but does not add things.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The will of God is not something you add to your life. It’s a course you choose. You either line yourself up with the Son of God…or you capitulate to the principle which governs the rest of the world.
Elisabeth Elliot
Take what’s useful, leave out what’s useless, and add a bit of yourself!
Manuel Neuer
I’ve learned, over the years, to go after the parts where I feel I can add something.
Adam Scott
There is not built-in meaning to anything, we are free to add any meaning we choose to give it.
Seamus Heaney
I usually wear only a bit of pink lippy, but for TV, they add a few extra lashes to brighten my eyes and some colour to my face, as without it, I look pale and uninteresting.
Mary Berry
I like to add props to render the specificities of place – paintings, food, clothing, signs, infrastructure, music, sayings and slang particular to the region and particular to the character. And props shouldn’t just sit there; they should get used.
Kaui Hart Hemmings
My mantra is: put your brain into gear and if you can add to what’s on the screen then do it, otherwise shut up.
Richie Benaud
I’m a good collaborative writer. I can usually come in and add a couple lines to something, and add a riff or a B-section, or a bridge that will tie things together. I can do stuff like that. But to write a whole song, I don’t have the patience for that, I guess.
James Young
In France, I guess there’s something like a tyranny in mentalities – we accept success badly, beauty, money. People are certainly envious, and this creates negative energy. This is annoying. I suffered a great deal at one time. I had to fight harder than others. Add to that my marriage to Polanski.
Emmanuelle Seigner
I’d love to become like Bill Murray, who was so funny on ‘Saturday Night Live’ and has gone on to do some of the landmark comedies people like. And then to add this whole other phase to his career with ‘Lost in Translation’ and ‘Rushmore.’ I always felt to be able to have something similar to that would be great.
Will Ferrell
The greatest reward lies in making the discovery; recognition can add little or nothing to that.
Franz Ernst Neumann
Temperance adds zest to pleasure.
Anne-Therese de Marguenat de Courcelles
You can always add something to a bike, but you come to a point where you can’t take anything away and that’s a fixed gear bike
Graeme Obree
I’ve always sought to give opportunities to women, to people who come from a different background, to add diversity to the mix – in that I think it makes our work better.
Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi
But I will add, there’s one thing I will not do, ever: I will never talk to you about things you cannot change. It plants a negativity in the head of a designer or the student, and it’s a distraction.
Tim Gunn
I was better at both ends, defensively and offensively, It was more of a well-rounded game.
I want to add to that.
Sidney Crosby
What we want to do to monetize Venmo is to add more and more capabilities. Anywhere you see a PayPal merchant, you can click on that button and actually use your Venmo account to check out at that merchant. Then we’ll monetize that transaction exactly the same way we monetize a PayPal transaction.
Dan Schulman
I may add that the result of my 45 years of study of the Bible has led me all the time to a firmer faith that in the Old Testament, we have a true historical account of the history of the Israelite people.
Robert Dick Wilson
Winter is coming, we know what’s coming with it. We can learn to live with the wildlings, or we can add them to the army of the dead.
Jon Snow
Most marriages don’t add two people together. They subtract one from the other.
Ian Fleming
I had all kinds of allergy problems with certain meats, and with fruits and vegetables with pesticides. So I turned to bear, caribou, venison, hippopotamus, buffalo, elk and moose. Taste-wise, buffalo and elk are tied for first. Not gamy, and loaded with protein. And very expensive, I might add.
Billy Casper
I have always felt that I have observed life in a different way to others… Music has always been one creative outlet for me, but now I’m happy to add another one too, that being photography
Julian Lennon
People think they need to hire someone to do their PR, but 99 percent of PR in the early stages is stuff you can do yourself. It’s just like business development – there’s the warm-up intro, followup to build relationships, then add something of value.
Michael Seibel
I binge write, basically. I do a lot of prep, research, setup. I’ll have a pretty detailed outline. Sort of like a beat outline. And then I’ll add little notes and dialogue ideas, and I’ll just create a 20-page document.
Cary Fukunaga
The cell phone companies add to the problem. Every one they give out, they get money for from the federal government. So they have an incentive to give as many away as possible. And that’s exactly what they’re doing, and they’re making a killing.
Tim Griffin
Millennials, as others, want creative, durable, desirable, and beautiful products. But they do add a new criteria: respect.
Antoine Arnault
I love the way my weight fluctuates in the newspapers. It was 18 stone and then people look at a bad picture of me and add a few more stone on. I think the highest was 22 stone.
Johnny Vegas
Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away, when a body has been stripped down to its nakedness.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
He who by an exertion of mind or body, adds to the aggregate of enjoyable wealth, increases the sum of human knowledge, or gives to human life higher elevation or greater fullness – he is, in the larger meaning of the words, a ” producer,” a ” working man,” a ” laborer,” and is honestly earning honest wages.
Henry George
I tend to think that the onus is on the writer to engage the reader, that the reader should not be expected to need the writer, that the writer has to prove it. All that stuff might add up to a kind of fun in the work. I like things that are about interesting subjects, which sounds self-evident.
Lorin Stein
The worst part was that I had things I wanted to tell my mother, too many to count, but none of them would go down so easy. She’d been through too much, between my siters-I could not add to the weight. So instead, I did my best to balance it out, bit by bit, word by word, story by story, even if none of them were true.
Sarah Dessen
I know a lot of actors who get a part and then they dissect it and they want to change it and they want to add stuff. I’m always amazed and so impressed by actors who do that.
Naomie Harris
The larger picture here is that a North Korea with nuclear weapons adds to the larger proliferation risk.
Susan Rice
Wine lovers know that putting some effort into understanding and appreciating wine pays big dividends. Skillful tasting unlocks wine’s treasures. It adds an extra dimension to the basic routines of eating and drinking, turning a daily necessity into a celebration of life.
Marvin Shanken
People are always going to say stupid things, and you’re always going to be able to make jokes about that, but it should be the last thing you add in, because it’s the easiest thing.
John Oliver
People will get into the habit of doing the same thing over and over again, and you’ll stop seeing changes in your body. If you add variety and spice things up, I think it’ll help you to stay motivated.
Dara Torres
If the markets had behaved badly, that would obviously add to people’s sense of alarm… but there has been a lot of reassurance coming, particularly in the way the Brits handled all this. There seems to be no great fear that something like that is going to happen here.
Brit Hume
I like being old, even if the names I hear are more and more unfamiliar. Maybe, to paraphrase Goethe who said that, “Youth is wasted on the young,” we should add that “Age can be wasted on the aged,” unless one’s capacity to wonder increases.
Wolf Kahn
The opposite of Taking A Risk is of course Playing It Safe. You must admit though, Playing It Safe is a pretty dull way to live. On a score of one to ten as a Risk Taker where do you stand? Add a little spice to your life today and take a risk.
Bob Proctor
Add love, and all the lines between right and wrong were bound to disappear.
Jodi Picoult
My job is to interpret. I’m an interpreter. I can add things and bring unique qualities to the role that the writer may not have thought of, but someone else created the fundamental idea.
Kevin Spacey
When I build something for somebody, I always add $50 million or $60 million onto the price. My guys come in, they say it’s going to cost $75 million. I say it’s going to cost $125 million, and I build it for $100 million. Basically, I did a lousy job. But they think I did a great job.
Donald Trump
Pyramiding instructions appear on dollar bills. Add smaller and smaller amounts on the way up. Keep your eye open at the top.
Ed Seykota
I know all the Latin-American rhythms quite well, but I don’t play them exactly like they do in their own country – I add my personal touch.
Dizzy Gillespie
I must add… my gratitude to you for the attention with which you have listened to me, for, from my numerous observations, our Liberals are never capable of letting anyone else have a conviction of his own without at once meeting their opponent with abuse or even something worse.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
Companies can add value and simultaneously promote themselves if their product or service truly improves the lives of their customers. I mean really improve lives, not wishful thinking, rationalization. That’s the acid test.
Guy Kawasaki
My first gig ever was writing looplines for a movie that had already been made. You know, writing lines over somebody’s back to explain something, to help make a connection, to add a joke, or to just add babble because the people are in frame and should be saying something.
Joss Whedon
Why not add benefits for making healthy food choices, provide a transition bonus for getting off food stamps, or increase job training opportunities and income – raising minimum wage?
Donna Brazile
You’d think all of these “atypical” somethings would add up to a typical something
Robin Williams
The problem with a group is, the more people you add, the lower the average IQ.
William Binney
I love that we are bringing the flavors of Frontera to Los Angeles. I think we can only add to the booming food community in Los Angeles. Our food is gutsy and soulful.
Rick Bayless
I look at graphic design as communication, meaning that the work has to have a vibe to connect to the viewer or perceiver. I make a black and white drawing and then add color digitally, bringing in a contemporary pattern to the composition to create a vibrance.
John Van Hamersveld
The best way to make employees happy is to set realistic goals and achieve them. The big job is to make sure those small steps are pointing us in the right direction and demonstrate at the end of the year that they all add up to something pretty great.
Leila Janah
The whole of the life — even the hard — is made up of the minute parts, and if I miss the infinitesimals, I miss the whole. These are new language lessons, and I live them out. There is a way to live the big of giving thanks in all things. It is this: to give thanks in this one small thing. The moments will add up.
Ann Voskamp
A slick ponytail is a great way to add a modern, minimal look to your outfit.
Brad Goreski
Hence my insistence that music and meditation should go together. That adds a new dimension to both. Both are enriched by it.
I made the mistake of thinking that if you add up the past, you sum up the future; I forgot how frequently life astonishes us.
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
Your own experience keeps taking you towards something. My book adds the hope that it’s a better something.
Moon Unit Zappa
When I got to Cal, they tried to put me in safe classes, things I could succeed at. I went to Cal for an education. That’s definitely problematic. You see athletes taking majors that don’t add up to anything.
Jaylen Brown
You have to have a full-length mirror in your house so you can see what is missing and what you have to add to your look.
Carolina Herrera
Research can be interesting, but it can be pointless as well. The realities of making a movie often are not conducive with that. I’m not knocking it. I love doing research myself, but I admit it doesn’t always add to the performance.
Christian Bale
As a Marxist, let me add: if anyone tells you Lacan is difficult, this is class propaganda by the enemy.
Slavoj ЕЅiЕѕek
I’ve never worked for the sake of working. There’s probably enough crap out there for me not to add to it.
Judy Davis
For music, unlike a $500 software program, people are paying a buck or two a song, and it’s those dollars and pennies that have to add up to pay for not just the cost of that song, but the investment in the next song.
Hilary Rosen
Living is strife and torment, disappointment and love and sacrifice, golden sunsets and black storms. I said that some time ago, and today I do not think I would add one word.
Laurence Olivier
I’m just an actor. If it’s drama, I add as much humour as the part will stand. And if it’s a comedy, add as much drama as you can, so it balances out; you don’t wanna be too serious.
Michael Pena
Sad songs seem to work for me, but I don’t want to be redundant; I want to add a little flavor.
Toni Braxton
The secret of happiness is to count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.
William Penn
Donald Trump is a champion of women. He recognizes that we add to the conversation, and that certainly something as Republican Party chair I’m going to be reaching out to women all across this country.
Ronna McDaniel
I once had an editor advise me, as I was revising one of my early novels, to add more characters. I played around with the idea. As soon as I’d decided a few fresh faces and give them something to do, I realized that what my editor had really asked for was more plot. Ding. More characters equals more action.
Elizabeth Sims
Jesus removes all that is superfluous & unclean from our prayers, & adds His perfection, beauty & fragrance to them!
Joseph Prince
I love to not defend ever and to open my mind and take in what can always add to me, not take away from me.
Byron Katie
I want to add something worthwhile rather than just chucking loads of stuff into the world. I don’t want to feel responsible for adding to the soup of mediocrity.
Bat for Lashes
If we think the main mission of the church is to improve life in Adam and add a little moral strength to this fading evil age, we have not yet understood the radical condition for which Christ is such a radical solution.
Michael Horton
We’re mathematically past the point where the accumulation of individual actions can add up quickly enough to make a difference. The individual action that actually matters is not being an individual. It’s joining together with other people in groups large enough to change the political dynamic around climate change.
Bill McKibben
I’m a very textural composer. I care a lot about textures and gestures. Electronics add so much to that. It’s like a flavor – it creates so much texture.
Du Yun
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Rabindranath Tagore
It’s all about sound. It’s that simple. Wireless is wireless, and it’s digital. Hopefully somewhere along the line somebody will add more ones to the zeros. When digital first started, I swear I could hear the gap between the ones and the zeros.
Eddie Van Halen
Secret Cinema has created a new way of experiencing film. The fusion of film and theatre allows for a much more powerful experience and adds an incredibly unique dimension for the audience. It certainly did for me. I was blown away
Kevin Spacey
All that a good government aims at… is to add no unnecessary and artificial aid to the force of its own unavoidable consequences, and to abstain from fortifying and accumulating social inequality as a means of increasing political inequalities.
James F. Cooper
One advantage of the discovery of the Photographic Art will be, that it will enable us to introduce into our pictures a multitude of minute details which add to the truth and reality of the representation, but which no artist would take the trouble to faithfully copy from nature.
Henry Fox Talbot
Every generation reinvents the wheel – and in the process it often adds to rather than subtracts from a woman’s burdens.
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison
You can add five years to your lifespan by just making intelligent lifestyle choices.
Lamman Rucker
If we are to make progress, we must not repeat history but make new history. We must add to inheritance left by our ancestors.
Mahatma Gandhi
Poetry, at all times, exercises two distinct functions: it may reveal, it may unveil to every eye, the ideal aspects of common thingsor it may actually add to the number of motives poetic and uncommon in themselves, by the imaginative creation of things that are ideal from their very birth.
Walter Pater
I am astonished, disappointed, pleased with myself. I am distressed, depressed, rapturous. I am all these things at once and cannot add up the sum.
Carl Jung
The key to making up Oscar Wilde quotes is to add ‘~ Oscar Wilde’ at the end.
Oscar Wilde
I always try to look at the episode overall, and try to figure out where I can add something that’s a little ironic or self-aware or light because I think that’s what makes the show special.
Meaghan Rath
For knowledge, add something every day. For wisdom….subtract.
I make the game easy. Double and triple me, I’ll kick it out to you for a wide-open shot. I’ll add years to your career.
Shaquille O’Neal
For 40 years, I have not been the ruler – the authority has been with the people. They take nothing from me or add anything to me.
Muammar al-Gaddafi
For every new feature we add, we take an old one out. A lot of big sites don’t do that, and it’s a problem.
David Karp
the problems of three little people in a big world don’t add up to much
Humphrey Bogart
I could easily fill up each week with going to see debuts of friends’ compositions alone. When you add in all of the bands I’m interested in catching and all of the improvisers that I still love, it gets almost impossibly daunting. I try to do as much as I can.
David First
I saw it as a challenge to play with Pat and we put hours and hours into it, usually on the bus. The trick was to find something that we both wanted to play within our different styles which would add up to being greater than the sum of its parts.
Bill Bruford
When it comes to snowing people, one effective technique is to get a whole bunch of verifiable facts right and then add one or two that are untrue.
Daniel Levitin
I have career ADD, he says. I have career dissatisfaction. Even as a young kid, I’d have that. I’d get really passionate about something and then I’d realize, ‘I don’t want to do that!
Mark Consuelos
Oh these little rejections how they add up quickly, one small sideways look and I feel so ungood. Somewhere along the way I think I gave you the power to make me feel the way I thought only my father could.
Alanis Morissette
There are many reasons why photography does not attract the social and cultural attention it deserves. I would add one more which has received scant attention: it does not make a lot of noise. … Perhaps photography would be more appreciated if camera shutters fired with the sound of a .357 Magnum.
Bill Jay
Positiveness is a most absurd foible. If you are in the right, it lessens your triumph; if in the wrong, it adds shame to your defeat.
Laurence Sterne
My mom blames California for me being a lesbian. Everything was fine until you moved out there. That’s right, Mom, we have mandatory lesbianism in West Hollywood. The Gay Patrol busted me, and I was given seven business days to add a significant amount of flannel to my wardrobe.
Coley Sohn
Thankfully, roads have opened that could lead us out of this Brexit crisis. One obvious solution, which is fast gaining support, is to hand the issue back to the country. I would add that we also need formally to take no deal Brexit off the table, because that way lies chaos and disaster.
Dominic Grieve
Each day that fate adds to your life, put down as so much gain.
You will obtain a vision of matter that is perhaps fatiguing for your imagination, but pure and stripped of what the requirements of life make you add to it in external perception.
Henri Bergson
I like to be one of those drummers who actually add to the music, not one of those guys who sit in a room 24/7 trying to outwit or outplay another drummer.
Dave Lombardo
Accomplishing the impossible means only that the boss will add it to your regular duties.
Doug Larson
I always like to start with a matte base then add shimmer.
Scarlett Johansson
America’s Older Americans add great value to our Nation.
Paul Sarbanes
Computers add convenience to our everyday lives, but we are limited in what we can do with technology others have imagined. The ability for humans to teach machines entirely new things – coding – is nothing short of a superpower.
Tobias Lutke
I’m always in the studio with my dad. I’ve written a few songs. I’ll start off writing rhymes, then freestyles, then I add in beats.
Sofia Richie
A willing heart adds feather to the heel.
Joanna Baillie
I need to be spontaneous sometimes. Sometimes I find that the little detail or nuance that you add to it that’s based on what’s happening at the time that’s not very rehearsed often ends up feeling like the funniest thing.
Thomas Lennon
I take my craft seriously, of course, but I don’t feel the need to always play a certain character or a certain part or persona. I’m not going to cut something out of my life because it’s not ‘my image.’ I want to be open enough that if I love something, I can do it, and it will add to myself as an entertainer.
As Karl Marx once noted: ‘Hegel remarks somewhere that all great, world-historical facts and personages occur, as it were, twice. He forgot to add: the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.’ William Jennings Bryan and the Scopes trial was a tragedy. The creationists and intelligent design theorists are a farce.
Michael Shermer
It’s no longer just reporting the headlines of the day, but trying to put the headlines into some context and to add some perspective into what they mean.
Bob Schieffer
Truths emerge from facts, but they dip forward into facts again and add to them; which facts again create or reveal new truth (the word is indifferent) and so on indefinitely. The ‘facts’ themselves meanwhile are not true. They simply are. Truth is the function of the beliefs that start and terminate among them.
William James
Care to our coffin adds a nail, no doubt,
And every grin so merry draws one out.
John Wolcot
It doesn’t matter how old I get, I always act like an excited five year-old kid with severe ADD and a waddle at Disneyland.
Chris Colfer
Achievers can almost literally taste success because they imagine their goals in such vivid detail. Setbacks only seem to add spice and favor to the final taste of victory.
Denis Waitley
Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in uniform: he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
I’ve actually had a melody on my guitar since the day I learned how to play it, back when I was 7. And for some reason I can’t add lyrics to it.
Miley Cyrus
Ultimately, clean lines have greater longevity, which women appreciate, and to which they can add their own personality
Michael Kors
You can’t just be the same character forever. You’ve got to add some layers, show some personality.
Drew McIntyre
Avocados are not just for guacamole! You can just about add it to anything for a little more flavor!
Rachel Hollis
I use Stevia instead of sweetener. I add it to coffee or tea instead of sugar – you can even cook with it. The vanilla flavor is to die for!
Marisol Nichols
…from this day forward until the day you are buried, do two things each day. First, master a difficult old insight, and second, add some new piece of knowledge to the world each day.
Edwin Land
I am a socialist. However, I have to add that what I understand by socialism is exactly the opposite of what many people, or most people, today mean by socialism.
Erich Fromm
Need we add that mathematicians themselves are not infallible?
Henri Poincare
I have encouraged my kids to eat well from day one. I add flavor – herbs and spices – to everything because I don’t want them getting used to starchy, bland food.
Alison Sweeney
I want to suggest a feeling. It’s ridiculous to assume you can state an opinion. Somebody else can never relate to the lyric in the same way because their whole experience is different. You can only suggest, then people add their own history and experience to the lyrics.
Danielle Dax
For me, staying ready has always been, like, the preparations: do the behind-the-scenes or do what you think that’s not sexy that nobody will see, but when they do see it, it’s like, ‘Oh, snap… what she’s doing on her own, we’ll add to that, and it’ll blow up.’
Yvonne Orji
It’ll take you eternities to get rid of me,’ she adds sadly, which makes me jealous, I want her to say I’ll never get rid of her – I wanta be chased till eternity till I catch her.
Jack Kerouac
If you want to make a mythical creature, just take a regular animal and add wings to it. A horse becomes a pegasus, a lion becomes a griffin, and a hawk… becomes a double hawk.
Demetri Martin
Technique to me is a kind of a … I’m reluctant to talk about it because it seems so obvious to me what good technique is. I mean, you sit down, you shut up, and you pay attention is basically the good technique. And then the footnotes add; on an empty stomach, in a dark room, feeling comfortable.
Terence McKenna
The job is trying to create movie shots that have depth, that have the meanings you need them to have, and then good enough so that they will add something to the final picture. They will make the picture; they’ll get into the picture, and give them what they need. It’s an interesting job.
Robert Forster
I think it’s really important for actors to add some shock value to whatever they do. I think the audience gets bored very easily, and it’s really important to keep experimenting.
Jacqueline Fernandez
What moved us was not so much what would it do for South Africa, but there has been a great keenness on the Continent that the location of the Pan African Parliament must add to its credibility. And, so we said, fine, it’s a contribution to this process of the democratisation of the African Continent.
Thabo Mbeki
Readers themselves, I think, contribute to a book. They add their own imaginations, and it is as though the writer only gave them something to work on, and they did the rest.
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
I love that after a day when nothing is sure, and when I say ‘nothing’ I mean nothing, you can come home and absolutely know that if you add egg yolks to chocolate and sugar and milk, it will get thick. It’s such a comfort.
Julie Powell
‘Star Wars’ is life, but ‘Star Wars’ is also not very good, which is why ‘Rogue One’ – a Frankenstein’s monster assembled from a butchered first cut and an excessively large space antenna that only exists to add another 30 minutes to the film – is one of the better ‘Star Wars’ movies.
Sarah Jeong
Indian IT corporations have made work in the U.S. much more efficient by enhancing their productivity and quality of work. We have helped to add sufficient value to the corporations in the U.S.
N. R. Narayana Murthy
Do you realize that if we could increase just by 50 percent the number of adults who have a college degree, it would add $5 billion to the economy and it would result in a net income to the state of Arkansas of $340 million a year?
Mike Huckabee
For 350 years we have been taught that reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man and writing an exact man. Football’s place is to add a patina of character, a deference to the rules and a respect for authority.
Red Smith
Talent may frolic and juggle; genius realizes and adds.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I took the jacket off, changed my T-shirt for a dark gray tank top, slipped on the tangle of the back sheath, and put the jacket on again. Thugs are us. Great. Just add a super-tight ponytail and loads of mascara, and I’d be ripe to play a supervillain’s evil mistress. Ve haf vays of making you gif us your DNA sample.
Ilona Andrews
I write the music because I can’t really write lyrics. But I can write chords like Robin’s never heard of. So I provide the music for them to add the lyrics to.
Maurice Gibb
I now add, farther, that the apostle’s argument is so far from proving it to be the duty of people to obey, and submit to, such rulers as act in contradiction to the public good, and so to the design of their office, that it proves the direct contrary.
Jonathan Mayhew
I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.
Ken Burns
A little personal trick: apply brown eyeliner throughout the day and then just add a little black over the top for a night look.
Coco Rocha
I must be allowed to add some explanatory remarks to bring the subject home to reason-to that sluggish reason, which supinely takes opinions on trust, and obstinately supports them to spare itself the labour of thinking.
Mary Wollstonecraft
Taxing is an easy business. Any projector can contrive new compositions, any bungler can add to the old.
Edmund Burke
Mathematical Knowledge adds a manly Vigour to the Mind, frees it from Prejudice, Credulity, and Superstition.
John Arbuthnot
Women need to remember that if nature has made them plain, grace can make them beautiful, and if nature has made them beautiful, good deeds can add to their beauty. Grace will make you beautiful and will attract truly godly men to you. Make godliness and inward beauty your priority.
Joshua Harris
If you take the best of Wayne Dyer and add it to the best of Anthony Robbins, what you would have would only be half as good as Steve Chandler.
Dale Dauten
If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.
Coco Chanel
Mr. Obama denounced the $2.3 trillion added to the national debt on Mr. Bush’s watch as ‘deficits as far as the eye can see.’ But Mr. Obama’s budget adds $9.3 trillion to the debt over the next 10 years. What happened to Obama the deficit hawk?
Karl Rove
I cannot worry much about your sins and miseries when I have so many of my own. I can only love you all, poor fellow travellers, fellow sufferers. I do not want to add one least straw to the burden you already carry.
Dorothy Day
Facebook allows outsiders to add functionality to the site but reserves the right to change that policy at any time, to charge a fee for applications, or to de-emphasize or eliminate apps that court controversy or that they simply don’t like.
Jonathan Zittrain
Fiction that adds up, that suggests a “logical consistency,” or an explanation of some kind, is surely second-rate fiction; for the truth of life is its mystery.
Joyce Carol Oates
Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual for success, so Darren Hardy has written one for you. The Compound Effect shows you how small, smart choices add up to transform your life.
Harvey Mackay
The ability of a successful company to add functionality to its product has long been upheld.
Bill Gates
The queen of aggregation is, of course, Arianna Huffington, who has discovered that if you take celebrity gossip, adorable kitten videos, posts from unpaid bloggers and news reports from other publications, array them on your Web site and add a left-wing soundtrack, millions of people will come.
Bill Keller
Don’t try to add more years to your life. Better add more life to your years.
Blaise Pascal
The queen of aggregation is, of course, Arianna Huffington, who has discovered that if you take celebrity gossip, adorable kitten videos, posts from unpaid bloggers and news reports from other publications, array them on your website and add a left-wing soundtrack, millions of people will come.
Bill Keller
Wearing a breathable fabric is the most important thing for me. I also love to keep it simple and keep the number of garments I’m wearing ideally at one (a sundress for example), and then add some great jewelry.
Hilary Rhoda
A high truth, indeed, fairly, finely, and skilfully wrought out, brightening at every step, and crowning the final development of a work of fiction, may add an artistic glory, but is never
any truer, and seldom any more evident, at the last page than at the first.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
I always overwrite – really awful, long bits of script – and then I trim it down to the bare bones and then add a little bit to colour it in. At the end of all of my stories, I test for wordless comprehension. So I remove the text and see if it works by itself. And if it does, I feel that that’s a successful story.
Shaun Tan
The way to attack the entitlements problem is to bring the jobs home. This could be done by taxing corporations according to the location, domestic or foreign, at which they add value to their product.
Paul Craig Roberts
My palate is simpler than it used to be. A young chef adds and adds and adds to the plate. As you get older, you start to take away.
Jacques Pepin
A poem compresses much in a small space and adds music, thus heightening its meaning.
E. B. White
When you gain weight, for every pound that you gain, it adds four pounds of stress on your knees. So if you gain five pounds, you’ve got 20 pounds of stress on your knees. So that’s why I’m extremely careful with my portions and my workout, because I can’t be overweight.
Richard Simmons
I think that, if we do anything in a positive sense for the world, is provide one little bit of context, that’s very specifically focused, and hopefully people can add to their entire puzzle that gives them a larger picture of what it is that they see.
Jon Stewart
The measure of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much, but whether, as Franklin Roosevelt said, we provide enough for those who have too little.
Mark Shields
You think you have the most amazing life by having your dreams come true as a musician and marrying the woman of your dreams. But then you add a lil’ baby girl… to the mix, and it’s like you’ve never really lived and loved until she was here.
Coy Bowles
Yeah, leading an examined life, I always say, is a pain in the ass. It adds an element of complexity to business that most businessmen don’t want to hear about. They just want to call a fabric manufacturer, and say, “Hey, give us 10,000 yards of shirting.”
Yvon Chouinard
You add value to people when you value them.
John C. Maxwell
I once worked in a pub. I couldn’t add up to save my life, but I could pull the pints.
Pauline Quirke
I don’t buy art to put away somewhere. I buy art to appreciate, enjoy, and live with. It’s supposed to add to your life.
Orlando Bloom
I like classics but I always add a twist because I don’t like to think of my clothes as classic.
Monique Lhuillier
I like to write a joke without any fat on it. The shorter the better. I cater for people with ADD, basically.
Jimmy Carr
When I want to kick it up, I like to add hardwood chips or chunks to the grill; it adds bold smoky flavors. The most common woods are hickory and mesquite, but you can find alder, apple, cherry and, my personal favorite, pecan.
Emeril Lagasse
It’s nice to have a great female composer in the program and add her color.
Saint Cecilia
If Huck Finn or Tom Sawyer were alive today, we’d say they had ADD or a conduct disorder. They [boys] are who they are, and we need to love them for who they are. Let’s not try to rewire them.
Michael Gurian
No. He’s the personification of human fear. (Leta) Oh, goody. Just what I wanted to add to my dream. Should we invite him over for tea? (Aiden)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
If I were put into a college lecture hall right now and told to pay attention for 45 minutes, it would be physically impossible for me to do. I’m one of those people who believe that ADD is a gift. It’s tough to manage, but if you can harness it you can do great things.
Jeff Kinney
A picture is a thing which requires as much knavery, as much malice, and as much vice as the perpetration of a crime. Make it untrue and add an accent of truth.
Edgar Degas
A look which reveals inward stress adds more beauty to the face, no matter how much tragedy and pain it bespeaks; but the face which, in silence, does not announce hidden mysteries is not beautiful, regardless of the symmetry of its features.
Khalil Gibran
I was a very quiet kid. A really sweet kid, I might add.
Janet Jackson
The reserve currency role seems to add prestige to an area and some people in Europe have talked about the desirability of the euro becoming an international reserve currency.
Robert C. Solomon
Jesus. Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. Delilah, Jezebel, Salome, Judith, Eve. Trouble, every last one. Add Minerva Highwood to the list.
Tessa Dare
Add to this the pride of achievement; the desire to rank among the successful souls on earth, and we have the factors which have brought some of the ablest of human beings into the limelight that revealed them to an admiring world, as leaders and examples.
Lewis Howard Latimer
God is not just one thing we add to the mix called life. He wants an invitation from us to permeate everything and every part of us.
Francis Chan
Sentimental titles are the last bastion of scoundrels, and can add significant barf to an already barfy work.
Robert Genn
I have the basic skills already, my basic weapons if we put it that way. From there I can add more the necessary skills I need for a particular opponent. I have to study all the aspects of my opponent, so when I am in the ring, everything will be automatic.
Tomoki Kameda
An affair now and then is good for a marriage. It adds spice, stops it from getting boring… I ought to know.
Bette Davis
It is almost impossible to think of something no one has thought of before, but it is always possible to add different frills.
Isaac Asimov
Leadership is simple: Add value to people everyday.
Mike Krzyzewski
Mix idealism with realism and add hard work. This will often bring much more than you could ever hope for.
John Wooden
I like to wear classic silhouettes and add a punch to it.
Serena Williams
Spray a book with insect spray, drop it in a bag, add some mothballs and seal it. Put it in another bag and seal it. Another. The packages piled up on the floor, each a book sealed in four plastic envelopes.
Larry Niven
Take the year a country first reaches 50% literacy and add one or two generations to allow the idea to sink in and, democracy, more or less automatically, appears.
Gwynne Dyer
Allow me to add that it is my conviction that the contents of Der Stuermer as such were not (incitement). During the whole 20 years, I never wrote in this connection, ‘Burn Jewish houses down; beat them to death.’ Never once did such an incitement appear in Der Stuermer.
Julius Streicher
One basic formula for understanding the Community is this: ‘Take five broken empires, add the sixth one later, and make one big neo-colonial empire out of it all.’
Johan Galtung
Generally, when it comes to covers, I try and add elements that may not take your immediate attention but really become important the more you look at them.
Lee Bermejo
A great way to get all the right nutrients is to make a colorful plate – mix of good vegetables, carbohydrates, and protein. If you notice all your vegetables are green, change it up and add another color for a variety of benefits in one meal.
Summer Sanders
It’s a difficult world for lots of child actors, and it’s difficult to be a teenager under any circumstances. Add to that notoriety and fame, and things can go really wrong. But I had a terrific family and grew up very normal in Phoenix.
Peter Billingsley
We could take all the pleasures that have ever been and will ever be in all the universes and add them up into one experience. If you were absorbed in nirvana, it wouldn’t be noticed.
Frederick Lenz
It’s been said that astronomy is a humbling and, I might add, a character-building experience.
Carl Sagan
Who keeps the old akindle and adds new knowledge is fitted to be a teacher.
If I don’t think about anything and just sing sincerely, it could be the best, but at the same time of singing sincerely, I must also add my own thinking and measure in, to be able to maintain and sing this way is my dream, and it is also the biggest problem.
How come when you mix water and flour together you get glue…and then you add eggs and sugar and you get cake? Where does the glue go?
Rita Rudner
I think it’s fun to play with worlds that you can add a lot of your own imagination to. With ‘True Blood,’ you’re not limited by anything, there are just leaps and bounds of the imagination you can take with these characters.
Deborah Ann Woll
A pleasing personality helps you win friends and influence people. Add character to that formula, and keep those friends and maintain that influence.
Zig Ziglar
Obviously, any time you’re closer in terms of what your knowledge is to a character, you can add something. But an actor’s job is not to play only people he can identify with.
Peter Riegert
Life will not, it will never, make sense to your mind. The secret is to see life from the soul’s perspective; to add to the mind’s experience the soul’s wisdom, awareness, and total knowing.
Neale Donald Walsch
I could walk into anyone’s home one time and draw a three-dimensional architectural plan of the inside of their home from memory, but I could not add up a column of numbers.
Patricia Polacco
A good hamburger mix: add equal parts black pepper, granulated garlic, grilled onion, onion powder and some chopped onion. And mix in a little barbecue sauce, which will add even more great flavor.
Johnny Trigg
Every word you add dilutes the sentence.
Miller Williams
The church acknowledges some Scientologists choose to sever communications with family members who leave. The church says it is a fundamental human right to cease communication with someone. It adds disconnection is used against expelled members and those who attack the church.
John Sweeney
I dislike nothing more than finding fault with a man’s nature or talent; it only depresses and worries and does no good; one cannot add a cubit to one’s stature, all striving and struggling are useless there, so one has to be silent about it, and let the responsibility rest with God.
Felix Mendelssohn
You always have three movies that you have to reduce into one. You have the screenplay. And then, you do a workshop and you add more scenes. And then, on the day you shoot, there’s more action and interaction. It’s like a souffle. It has a tendency to just grow and explode, and it’s just too long.
Louis Leterrier
Talking-head shows are just a camera, a sound guy, and then a PA writing down what you say and a producer asking you questions. And you’re just supposed to rephrase the question and add a joke to it. Figuring out how to do that was super hard.
Nicole Byer
I don’t like the idea of having to reproduce a recorded song live that I sing. I have enough to do on stage. I’m really busy up there, and I’m really busy with everything I have to do for every show. Add having to worry about my voice and singing lead on a song or two, that’s not something I necessarily want to do.
Tom Scholz
The creation by word-power of something out of nothing–what is that but magic? And, may I add, what is that but literature?
Aldous Huxley
A little rudeness and disrespect can elevate a meaningless interaction to a battle of wills and add drama to an otherwise dull day.
Bill Watterson
Associating with the wise and the knowledgeable people adds to the prestige of a person.
Ali ibn Abi Talib
The attempt to remove evil from the world by killing a thousand evil – doers, only adds to the evil in the world.
Swami Vivekananda
Write a page a day. It will add up.
Herman Wouk
What I love about cooking is that after a hard day, there is something comforting about the fact that if you melt butter and add flour and then hot stock, it will get thick!
Nora Ephron
Color is just in a small area of our vision, and the rest we add with the mind.
James Turrell
You add a good receiver and that will take pressure off your quarterback.
Herm Edwards
And what do I mean by the word ‘perfection’? That I shall not try to explain but only say, ‘Perfection makes me laugh.’ Not cynically, I hasten to add, ‘With joy.
Susan Sontag
The world presents enough problems if you believe it to be a world of law and order; do not add to them by believing it to be a world of miracles.
Louis D. Brandeis
To become learned, each day add something. To become enlightened, each day drop something
Never should an unfamiliar word be passed over without elucidation, for, with a little conscientious research, we may each day add to our conquests in the realm of philology and become more and more ready for graceful independent expression.
H. P. Lovecraft
I would comment on the scene, but I’ve never kissed a woman so I don’t really have anything to add.
Todd Grisham
It’s not good to thicken sauce with too much butter because it can cause heaviness. You don’t want to avoid butter, but you also don’t want to put too much – add it slowly.
Daniel Boulud
Being with someone who is smart and gives good advice adds tremendously wonderful elements to your life.
Patricia Cornwell
Jenks laughed, taking to the air and saying, “Give it up, FIB man. It’ll take more than you to get her out. Remember what Ivy and I did to your finest last spring? Add Rachel to that, and you can say your prayers.” From behind me came Edden’s dry “You think Ivy wants another stint as a candy striper?
Kim Harrison
Moms that get evicted are depressed and have higher rates of depressive symptoms two years later. That has to affect their interactions with their kids and their sense of happiness. You add all that together, and it’s just really obvious to me that eviction is a cause, not just a condition, of poverty.
Matthew Desmond
Luminous quotations, also, atone, by their interest, for the dulness of an inferior book, and add to the value of a superior work by the variety which they lend to its style and treatment.
Christian Nestell Bovee
…we can only add to the world, where we believe it ends, more parts similar to those we already know (an expanse made again and always of water and land, stars and skies).
Umberto Eco
My goal has always been to add value, not to be redundant, not to get in the way, but to do things that lift and move things forward in a very strategic and objective way so that there are real outcomes.
Michelle Obama
Every little thing you do adds up, and before you know it, you’ve created your life. And how you create your life ripples out and affects everyone and everything that crosses your path, known or unknown to you.
Kathy Freston
It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought-that is to be educated.
Edith Hamilton
It’s like a painter with various layers of paint. I start with a drum loop and add keyboards, and then melodies start to take shape. The vocals happen later. I’ve never really done therapy before, but it’s a form of therapy. Everything else falls away.
Washed Out
Maybe I’m like acts of Congress or your favorite Chinese restaurant – you don’t really want to know what’s going on behind the door. I’m a real study in contrast, I expect, looking from without. But it adds up to what you get on stage.
David Lee Roth
We have learned to say that the good must be extended to all of society before it can be held secure by any one person or any one class. But we have not yet learned to add to that statement, that unless all [people] and all classes contribute to a good, we cannot even be sure that it is worth having.
Jane Addams
One figure can sometimes add up to a lot.
Wesley Ruggles
Awareness of insanity does not make one any less insane. Awareness of drowning does not make one any less of a drowning person–it only adds the burden of panic
Guillermo del Toro
It’s arguable whether a hit song is gonna add to the business a film does. There are plenty of films that didn’t do any business and sold a million albums.
John Hughes
[A]ll knowledge is one. When a light brightens and illuminates a corner of a room, it adds to the general illumination of the entire room. Over and over again, scientific discoveries have provided answers to problems that had no apparent connection with the phenomena that gave rise to the discovery.
Isaac Asimov
Artillery adds dignity, to what would otherwise be an ugly brawl.
Frederick The Great
There was a contact between a football player and a cheerleader, male I might add. That male cheerleader clipped me from the side as I was running full speed, or slower than full speed, but generally, in the upper quadrant of speed. And I hit the ground pretty good.
Les Miles
I mean, the part you don’t like, I mean, that’s the only part. That’s the part no one likes, and that is the criticisms, and the unfair criticisms, I might add, of my husband. But that’s also just a fact of life in politics.
Laura Bush
Freestyling helps me portray the emotion that I’m feeling right there instead of writing it at home and having to add to it.
Let’s do some comedy. I always like to add some comedy to my show. Those who’ve seen me before might know that.
Bill Hicks
Most of the time, when I make a big move, people say I am out of my mind. But I don’t think about how I can add to what I have today.
Masayoshi Son
I got a feeling your statements are true but all they add up to is one big lie.
Vincent Gardenia
Inez? I’m sorry I bit you,” he said with sincere regret, and then inspiration made him add, “Bastien made me do it.
Lynsay Sands
If you add a little to a little and do this often, soon the little will become great.
I can’t add above 10, I can’t draw a stick figure, and I’m tone deaf. So I had to be able to do something. I found that something was picking successful models.
Eileen Ford
Rather than exist each day in some dull, boring habitual manner, move into action on a big idea. Everyone is on the brink of possibility. Your responsibility is to discover what that possibility is for you. Ideas can turn you on, they can wind you up. The right idea can and will add a new dimension to your life.
Bob Proctor
I played the violin my whole life. I wanted to play from the time I was just a little kid, and I’ve always loved dance as well. I wanted to make people smile. I wanted to add an extra energy to my playing and make it visual and make it unique and fun.
Lindsey Stirling
I spent 23 years in the military. I think I’m in a good position to make those judgments on what is necessary in the military and what is not necessary, without buying a lot of things that would not really add to our security.
John Glenn
We know from hard research that educated populations have lower growth rates, are more peaceful, and add to the global economy.
Peter Diamandis
Everything we possess that is not necessary for life or happiness becomes a burden, and scarcely a day passes that we do not add to it.
Robert Breault
Those who have any intention of deviating from the beaten roads of life, and acquiring a reputation superior to names hourly swept away by time among the refuse of fame, should add to their reason and their spirit the power of persisting in their pur
Samuel Johnson
The public impression is that the government, industry or the highest bidder can buy a scientist to add credibility to any message. That crucial quality of impartiality is being lost.
Johnny Ball
I kinda have the opposite of ADD. I have a hyper-focused disorder, where if there’s a given task in front of me I really concentrate on that.
Jared Leto
I’m going to introduce BookShots, which are these under-150-page books that I’m launching, and they’re under $5. They just launched in Australia. I already had a ton of content, but now add 50 books a year of content.
James Patterson
O how feeble is man’s power, that if good fortune fall, cannot add another hour, nor a lost hour recall!
John Donne
Whenever you’re playing somebody who is, by all accounts, rotten, don’t focus on the rotten stuff. That stuff will take care of itself. It’s already in the script; the audience is already experiencing it without you having to add an extra feel of evil. Just play them like regular people.
Cameron Britton
What an actor says is much, much less important than a life, so that’s the great use for improvisation; you go, you find the life and then you add the words.
Giovanni Ribisi
Books, which we mistake for consolation, only add depth to our sorrow.
Orhan Pamuk
According to the celestial multiplication table, once one is three, and three times one is one, and according to heavenly subtraction if we take two from three, three are left. The addition is equally peculiar, if we add two to one we have but one. Each one is equal to himself and the other two.
Robert Green Ingersoll
I try to push myself a little every day. For me, it’s doing 10 more seconds of whatever I’m working on. So if I’m on the treadmill sprinting my butt off or doing a grueling core workout, I think to myself, ‘You can do 10 more seconds, and you’ll be that much mentally stronger.’ After a while, those 10 seconds add up!
Alex Morgan
Who knows if the gods above will add tomorrow’s span to this day’s sum?
Add a few drops of venom to a half truth and you have an absolute truth.
Eric Hoffer
I have extreme ADD.
JaVale McGee
Film gives me live actors, editing, music, sound, a huge and powerful toolbox to play with. If there is a problem for me, it is that film gives me too much. There is less room for the audience to add their side of the conversation.
Dave McKean
Pick up a grain a day and add to your heap. You will soon learn, by happy experience, the power of littles as applied to intellectual processes and gains.
John Seely Hart
Justice is not to be taken by storm. She is to be wooed by slow advances. Substitute statute for decision, and you shift the center of authority, but add no quota of inspired wisdom.
Benjamin Cardozo
Indeed art is fundamental : to science, mathematics and to language. Unfortunately theorists, educators, parents and administrators have not fully understood its importance, relegating it to a secondary role, or that of an add on.
John A. Hiigli
I’d like to add some beauty to life,” said Anne dreamily. “I don’t exactly want to make people KNOW more… though I know that IS the noblest ambition… but I’d love to make them have a pleasanter time because of me… to have some little joy or happy thought that would never have existed if I hadn’t been born.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
So, what if, instead of thinking about solving you whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.
Rainbow Rowell
I like mixing things up. That makes it more interesting. I love mixing in slower funk with what I do. I’ll add drum and bass and put my foot to the gas pedal and press it to the floor.
If history reveals any categorical truth, it is that an insufficient taste for evidence regularly brings out the worst in us. Add weapons of mass destruction to this diabolical clockwork, and you have . . . a recipe for the fall of civilization.
Sam Harris
Exterior shots showing blue skies add a levity and brightness to each show.
Bonnie Hammer
Every thought, every word, and every action that adds to the positive and the wholesome is a contribution to peace. Each and every one of us is capable of making such a contribution. Let us join hands to try to create a peaceful world where we can sleep in security and wake in happiness.
Aung San
The direction and rhythm of human progress do not depend on the masses, even when they add up to hundreds of millions; they depend on superior minorities.
Gonzalo Fernandez de la Mora
Be honest with yourself about what you’re blowing off. A little cancellation here or a bow-out there can add up… but only if you refuse to acknowledge your actions.
Rachel Hollis
I am eighty years old. There seems to be nothing to add to this statement. I have reached the age of undecorated facts – facts that refuse to be softened by sentiment, or confused by nobility of phrase.
Agnes Repplier
Thus, I blush to add, you can not be a philosopher and a good man, though you may be a philosopher and a great one.
George Bernard Shaw
The more allrounders you have, the more difficult it becomes for the opposition. The reason being, if you have players who can bat and bowl, and if they are proper allrounders – they may be spinning or fast-bowling allrounders – they add to the strength of the team.
MS Dhoni
I mean, 3-D adds a whole level of ‘oh my goodness’ to the movie in good ways and bad ways that you have to deal with. We’ve overcome any obstacle that we’ve ever had because we have a great 3-D crew, Max and the guys at Paradise 3-D.
Todd Farmer
My routine definitely starts with brows. I do add a little bit of mascara – even to the gym. I have to! I love Maybelline and Covergirl, just drugstore brands. I’m telling you, they’re the best.
Selenis Leyva
To put one brick upon another,
Add a third, and then a fourth,
Leaves no time to wonder whether
What you do has any worth.
Philip Larkin
We have to make sure as a staff, and I have to make sure as the staff learns, that we just really keep it simple. We get good at the fundamentals. And then, as we perfect that part of the game, now we can add on.
Matt Nagy
I thought I had to write literature and add my name to the list of great Southern storytellers. Fortunately for me, no one wanted to read any of those stories. They got rejected by everyone. Sometimes, I would get a note saying they liked the writing, but the story simply didn’t work.
Karin Slaughter
The people who do better and better work are people who are never satisfied. Cezanne would say, ‘I think I’ve accomplished something,’ but then he would immediately add, ‘But it’s not enough.
David Galenson
An incredible advertising career is not about creating an incredibly amazing ad, it’s about making an incredible amazing ad every single day of your career, it’s about getting those adds killed, and resurrecting them over and over again. It’s about your season average not that occasional home-run.
Lee Clow
It is great to add some glamour to the food industry, like television shows have done for the food world and inspiring people to work in the industry. The flip side of that is unfortunately people think that after they get their qualifications, they get their invitation to compete on ‘Top Chef.
Curtis Stone
Teach your students real-world writing purposes, add a teacher who models his or her struggles with the writing process, throw in lots of real-world mentor texts for students to emulate, and give our kids the time necessary to enable them to stretch as writers.
Kelly Gallagher
We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours.
John of Salisbury
Acknowledge all of your small victories. They will eventually add up to something great.
Kara Goucher
Like regular table salt, MSG can also help boost our perception of other existing flavors. Tomato soup with a pinch of MSG tastes a little more tomato-y. Add a dash to beef stew to make it taste beefier.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
Tantric Buddhism is just a collection of things that work by doing them. And sometimes we add new things. We have electronic music; we did not have it in Tibet.
Frederick Lenz
I’m not sure he’s wrong about automobiles,” he said. “With all their speed forward they may be a step backward in civilization — that is, in spiritual civilization. It may be that they will not add to the beauty of the world, nor to the life of men’s souls.
Booth Tarkington
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
An interesting piece of work, freely chosen, which has the virtue of inducing concentration rather than fatigue, adds to the child’s energies and mental capacities, and leads him to self-mastery.
Maria Montessori
Besides the obscurity arising from the complexity of objects, and the imperfection of the human faculties, the medium through which the conceptions of men are conveyed to each other adds a fresh embarrassment.
James Madison
The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability. Our business in every generation is to reclaim a little more land, to add something to the extent and the solidity of our possessions.
Thomas Huxley
As I followed him along the sharp black stones, I could hear Link’s voice in my head. “Bad move, man. He’s gonna kill you, stuff you, and add you to his collection of idiots who followed him back to his creepy cave
Kami Garcia
To think you can just go out and help people and somehow get a better life is not reincarnation as I know it. A better life comes from being happy and inner realizations. Now if helping others adds to that, well then, it’s great.
Frederick Lenz
Happiness is warm puppy. In other words, happiness is the things around you. Just to see that puppy is to be happy. You don’t have to do anything; you don’t have to add anything.
Frederick Lenz
[…] a number of flawed individuals can often add up to a brilliant social unit.
Robert Musil
I feel like any experience you can have which adds to your repertoire of things you’ve done and can add to your character – I’m willing to try.
Christa B. Allen
When people slave over those scripts and pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for them, they don’t usually want you to add farts.
Jennifer Coolidge
My secret with kale is to add lots of sweet or sharp flavours to offset some of that grassy intensity.
Yotam Ottolenghi
Everyone should have a deep-seated interest or hobby to enrich his mind, add zest to living, and perhaps, depending upon what it is, result in a service to his country.
Dale Carnegie
Joining McLaren didn’t add a lot of pressure but of course you want to make sure you can impress them.
Lando Norris
A woman’s wardrobe shouldn’t change every six months. You should be able to use the pieces you already own and add to them. Because they are like timeless classics.
Yves Saint Laurent
There is no question that I would be the better president. But as for the campaign, are Americans ready for a general election in which both major party candidates are ADD? Quite frankly, it could provide an opening for a third party candidate, maybe someone backed by the evil Koch brothers.
Joe Biden
It’s nice to get off the couch, throw the clothes on, add a little make-up and go back to work, every once in a while.
Leonard Nimoy
I think God’s hope and plan for us is pretty simple to figure out. For those who resonate with formulas, here it is: add your whole life, your loves, your passions, and your interests together with what God said He wants us to be about, and that’s your answer.
Bob Goff
I believe that it is made out of the same cloth of mind, but it is an add-on, it was something that was specialized to create what we call the self. And it exists for very special purposes and it has very special, and I think by and large good consequences, although not only good consequences.
Antonio Damasio
Inner child, what do you suggest? ‘I WANT A TREEHOUSE!’ Anything else to add? ‘FARTY NOISE UNDER THE ARM!’
Russell Howard
If thou hast wit and learning, add to it wisdom and modesty.
Benjamin Franklin
My biggest inspiration is black America and what they’ve done in the arts. I have always felt like an outsider in America, and what black Americans have done to add their chapter to this book called the American dream, and to be so unapologetic and true, and have added so much to art and culture in the world.
Hasan Minhaj
The fact of the attempted suicide by Augusto Martinez was explained in a concise and exact form by our government in a communique. There is absolutely nothing else to add.
Che Guevara
When I write music, these colors pop out of me. It’s hard to describe, but basically when I write music, I paint, and I add colors, and I add notes.
Ramin Djawadi
I loathed every day and regret every day I spent in school. I like to be taught to read and write and add and then be left alone.
Woody Allen
My life comes down to three moments: the death of my father, meeting my husband, and the birth of my daughter. Everything I did previous to that just doesn’t seem to add up to very much.
Gwyneth Paltrow
Math? Forget about it. If I add four plus eight plus six, I have to count on my fingers. I guess I’m hooked up differently.
Jeff Dunham
Relax, having kids is years away. But can you imagine? Your brains, my charm, our collective good looks… then add in the usual physical abilities dhampirs get. It’s really not even fair to everyone else.
Richelle Mead
The compensation of growing old … was simply this; that the passion remains as strong as ever, but one has gained — at last! — the power which adds the supreme flavour to existence — the power of taking hold of experience, of turning it round, slowly, in the light.
Virginia Woolf
You get [something] in your body that is the suffering or the problem, and then you [add] a second one, which is worry. In both cases, [it is] pointless.
Matthieu Ricard
Apply the lipstick first and then the gloss in the middle of the lips to add a touch of light.
Pat McGrath
I had so much fun developing and launching my first fragrance with Avon, so for my second fragrance, I really wanted to add a little more edge. Outspoken Intense is a provocative blend of sexy confidence and daring femininity that captures the thrill and excitement of being centre stage.
I want to get a job naming kitchen appliances. That seems easy; refrigerator, toaster, blender. You just say what the thing does and add “er”.
Mitch Hedberg
Prayer, like faith, obtains promises, enlarges their operation, and adds to the measure of their results.
Edward McKendree Bounds
Because I know war… because I know the horror, I don’t want to add to it. ………After the war, we felt the need to celebrate life, and for me photography was the means to achieve this.
Edouard Boubat
My brother was really smart, and I definitely had a little ADD – I was very creative and active – and my mom thought, ‘Why should I send them to school when they can work at a higher level at home?’
Vanessa Ray
I often enjoy wearing loud and outspoken clothing on stage, so off it, I usually wear loose-fitting vintage shirts, jeans, or track suits I’ve had forever. I just add styling to those pieces.
The US patent system adds the fuel of interest to the fire of genius in the discovery and production of new and useful things
Abraham Lincoln
I felt it would to add a great deal to my legend for eccentricity.
Roger Ebert
If I could only give three words of advice, they would be, ‘Tell the truth.’ If I got three more words, I’d add: ‘All the time.’
Randy Pausch
When I was born, my dad and my mom gave me names, but in Africa, when your child is born, especially close family members can suggest names they want to add on. Maybe your grandmom and your grandpop have something to add to the name of the child.
Dikembe Mutombo
Villainy, when detected, never gives up, but boldly adds impudence to imposture.
Oliver Goldsmith
I will frankly tell you that my experience in prolonged scientific investigations convinces me that a belief in God-a God who is behind and within the chaos of vanishing points of human knowledge-adds a wonderful stimulus to the man who attempts to penetrate into the regions of the unknown.
Louis Agassiz
Good and evil, as we term them, are not antagonistic; they are ever found hand in hand. Humanity has never achieved a single conquest without the aid of both. Indeed how can she? What adds to moral strength, but a grappling with temptation?
Sarah Moore Grimke
Many of us write because we are readers and have grown up in a long tradition, and we want to be able to add to that extraordinary flow of interpretations of the world.
Rosellen Brown
Let’s crowd source, curate, and add royalties to books
Walter Isaacson
For what is history, but… huge libel on human nature, to which we industriously add page after page, volume after volume, as if we were holding up a monument to the honor, rather than the infamy of our species.
Washington Irving
Be confident. There is no one who is not attracted to confidence. Women dig it. Men love it. Confidence adds hair, drops ten pounds, and takes off ten years.
Larry Winget
“Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s and unto God the things which are God’s.” One would like to add: Give unto man things which are man’s; give man his freedom and personality, his rights and religion.
Pope Pius XII
Remarkable marketing is the art of building things worth noticing right into your product or service. Not slapping on marketing as a last-minute add-on, but understanding that if your offering itself isn’t remarkable, it’s invisible.
A new thing I’ve been doing is just making sure I clear off my desk and try to only touch a piece of paper once, so I get the mail, open it up, deal with it then. My son’s homework, or what I get from his teachers, the same way. That way, it’s not nagging me, things to add to my to-do list.
Adina Porter
True and false fears let us refrain, Let us love nobly, and live, and add again Years and years unto years, till we attain To write threescore ; this is the second of our reign.
John Donne
Sorrow does not take away, but adds to the Christian’s joy.
Lester Roloff
Scientifically speaking, the existence of God is an untenable hypothesis. It’s not well-defined, it’s completely unnecessary to fit the data, and it adds unhelpful layers of complexity without any corresponding increase in understanding.
Sean M. Carroll
Never try to be a thought leader. There’s no value in that. Instead, try to add value.
Chris Brogan
On the left-hand side of the field equation we may add the fundamental tensor guv, multiplied by a universal constant, -О», at present unknown, without destroying the general covariance.
Albert Einstein
Every day, we are bombarded with a multitude of toxins in the environment. We know that the negative health impacts from this constant exposure can add up.
Chuck Norris
The small choices and decisions we make a hundred times a day add up to determining the kind of world we live in.
Harold S. Kushner
It’s not that I’m not grateful for all this attention. It’s just that fame and fortune ought to add up to more than fame and fortune.
Robert Fulghum
I definitely follow fashion and trends and will sporadically add them to my wardrobe in an organic way. But my style, at its core, is a minimal, clean, and timeless look.
Julian Edelman
A handbag is only one item to be worn with a complete outfit. Add a peony pink leather handbag to a charcoal gray suit, for instance, and the impact is chic with a touch of wit.
Kate Spade
Anyone can wear glitter, even a woman in her 60s. It’s all about techniques. Instead of applying glitter all over the face, you can just add a little to the inner corner of your eyes or on your brow bone, or even on your Cupid’s bow. It just adds this magical element to your makeup.
Michelle Phan
Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
Thomas Jefferson
If you add a little to a little, and then do it again, soon that little shall be much.
…Something we once loved, and love now, in the shape of a book. Maybe eBooks are going to take over, one day, but not until those whizzkids in Silicon Valley invent a way to bend the corners, fold the spine, yellow the pages, add a coffee ring or two and allow the plastic tablet to fall open at a favorite page.
Russell T Davies
Reality provides us with facts so romantic that imagination itself could add nothing to them.
Jules Verne
But I have to add – and this answers your other question – this catholicity in time and in space is only meaningful for me if there is, at the same time, a concentration on the Gospel.
Hans Kung
The testimony of scripture is so plain that to add anything were superfluous, were it not that the world is almost now come to that blindness, that whatsoever pleases not the princes and the multitude, the same is rejected as doctrine newly forged, and is condemned for heresy.
John Knox
There are enough tears in any child’s life; we certainly don’t need to add to them in the name of entertainment.
Bruce Forsyth
I think a lot of writers are tempted to add complexity by over-complicating things, but always remember that most natural rules/laws are, at their core, simple. Start simple, and build from there, or you risk getting yourself and your readers tangled.
V. E. Schwab
We know taxes slow down economic growth, so if you add a carbon tax you have to also minus other taxes. You can’t take more money out of people’s pockets. I don’t think you can build a consensus in this country about environmental policy if you’re going to make people poor.
Christy Clark
It is sometimes desirable to distort or accentuate with lenses of various focal lengths… Deliberate distortion may actually add to its reality.
Arthur Rothstein
I love to make a one-pot meal – think stir-fry but in the French Fricassee. I start with what takes the longest to roast and then add vegetables, fresh herbs, and starch until the meal is complete in one shot.
Daniel Boulud
In the time of your life, live—so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.”
William Saroyan
I mean, that’s the least we should do for these men and women [veterans and military spouses], is to make sure they come back to jobs that pay, to career opportunities, that these spouses are able to add a second income to their households, because these families do not have a lot of resources.
Michelle Obama
The short story is still like the novel’s wayward younger brother, we know that it’s not respectable – but I think that can also add to the glory of it.
Neil Gaiman
Justice to my readers compels me to admit that I write because I have nothing to do; justice to myself induces me to add that I will cease to write the moment I have nothing to say.
Charles Caleb Colton
Videos have to go hand in hand with your music, so that’s why, ultimately, they should be created by the artist. And if they’re not, it doesn’t really add up to me.
Marilyn Manson
The Prophecies of Daniel are all of them related to one another, as if they were but several parts of one general Prophecy, given at several times. The first is the easiest to be understood, and every following Prophecy adds something new to the former.
Isaac Newton
I think every time you take on a new role, you’re trying to help find that voice and you add your own bits and pieces along the way but with Noah [Baumbach] it’s already done.
Naomi Watts
Increasing your repertoire has the advantage that you don’t have to give up enjoying what you already like: it is always easier to add new behaviors than to deny your deepest desires.
Dossie Easton
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
When I first joined the Irvine Company, I realized that less than 11,000 acres were designated as open space in the original master plan, and that just didn’t seem adequate to me. So, I began the lengthy process working with public and community organizations to add more open space.
Donald Bren
That’s what hip-hop is – it’s about meeting the music where you are, and then you add on top of that. It’s about coming at it with your full self.
Daveed Diggs
our great common challenge … is to free people from religion, get it out of our laws, our schools, our health systems, our government and, I would add, also our sporting events. I would really like to see some separation of church and stadium, if we could work on that.
Barbara Ehrenreich
You’re like Marilyn Monroe,’ Ken tells me, which I take as a compliment and say a nervous “Thank You”. Interrupting, he adds, ‘You’re all velvet and Velcro. Men want you because you’re sexy and broken and when it gets too rough they can say “Hey! This toy is broken!” and toss you aside without feeling bad.
Emma Forrest
…music is about as physical as it gets: your essential rhythm is your heartbeat; your essential sound, the breath. We’re walking temples of noise, and when you add tender hearts to this mix, it somehow lets us meet in places we couldn’t get to any other way.
Anne Lamott
I always have homemade chicken stock in the refrigerator. I’ll reduce it, maybe add a little cream and a few shallots. Before you know it, eureka! It’s the best.
Johnny Mathis
…As an artist, you need the naysayers and the nonbelievers to add fuel to your creative fire.
Ice T
It wasn’t purely Alex Ferguson’s experience that made him a good manager, because he did it when he was inexperienced. But if you’ve got the qualities needed, and then you add experience to it, someone who’s been through it, well, that has to be advantageous. There’s no doubt about that.
Roy Hodgson
In the end mortals always expired before faeries. They were such finite creatures. Their first heartbeat and breath were but a blink from death. To add the weight of nourishing his insatiable court in a time of peace was to hasten that unconscionably.
Melissa Marr
Man, I wouldn’t know where to begin on education reform, but one thing we have to do is add teacher accountability WITHOUT stressing standardized test scores.
Raheem Jarbo
If people are coming into the country to add an extra dimension, to bring skills and expertise with them, we have always been open to that.
Esther McVey
Everything they say about Elvis today is true. He was just one great guy. He wasn’t jealous of anyone. I would say Elvis was really someone special when you add it all up.
Bobby Vinton
To lese-majeste and contempt of court, we must add the crime of lese-million, that fearful indignity we visit on the rich when we expose the impotence of gold.
Honore de Balzac
I wanted to make a reggaeton record. So I sent the record to Ozuna, and he killed it. Then I felt like I wanted to add a more female vibe but still keep some Spanish touch, so I asked Selena and Cardi, and it all came together.
DJ Snake
The Prophet had made dishonorable proposals to my wife… under cover of his asserted ‘Revelation.’… Smith told his wife Jane the Lord had commanded that he should take plural wives, to add to his glory… Joseph asked her to give him half her love; she was at liberty to keep the other half for her husband.
William Law
It is possible that the digital world may change the need for physical branches. We will continue to add branches incrementally, but we will reach a point – whether it is 1,500, 1,800 or 2,000 branches – where we will say enough is enough.
Uday Kotak
I’m always being told by directors that I add chemistry to scenes, so I mean how difficult could it be?
Zach Braff
A fine head of hair adds beauty to a good face, and terror to an ugly one.
Lycurgus of Sparta
Like it or not, we either add to the darkness of indifference and out-and-out evil which surrounds us or we light a candle to see by.
Madeleine L’Engle
Be intentional to add value to every person you meet everyday.
John C. Maxwell
By voting, we add our voice to the chorus that forms opinions and the basis for actions.
Jens Stoltenberg
God has invited us, as mere human beings, to add to the beauty of his plan and creation
Sara Groves
The same sports sayings seem to be used over and over again. If you have your own favorite sport saying and would like to share it, or possibly a story you would like to add please continue to our contributor page.
Mary Lynn Rajskub
There are two kinds of sculptures. There’s the kind that subtracts: Michelangelo starts with a block of marble and chips away. And then there is the kind that adds, building with clay, piling it on. The way I write novels is to keep piling on and piling on and piling on.
Jonathan Safran Foer
I don’t add any deliberate nuances to the way I sing. I’ve seen so much and been all over the world, but I’m glued to my roots, and that comes across.
Kailash Kher
I had serious training of painting styles from different historical periods… But to have all this training is not enough to be an artist. You have to add a new page to history; otherwise you are not making a contribution. But making history is not easy.
Liu Dan
I hesitate to add, but I will, that this is fun. God means Christianity to be fun. There is to be a reality of love and communication in the Christian-to-Christian relationship, individually and corporately, which is completely and truly personal.
Francis Schaeffer
After campaign financial reports show more money spent than raised in the month of September. Report adds to growing speculation that Donald Trump is not in some very deep psychological sense, actually running to be President of the United States, so much as he`s running to build up a fan base for Donald Trump.
Chris Hayes
I often feel like the woman in your life is your driving force. She’s your muse. She plays a big role in determining how confident you feel when you walk out the door. She can add 1,000 kilowatts of energy – or drain that out of you. She said, “No, you’re not that funny.” I thought, She knows better than anyone.
Trevor Noah
He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Say that his power lies in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count ’em up: what then? The happiness he gives, is quite as great as if it cost a fortune.
Charles Dickens
I feel most sexy when everything comes together! I like to maintain myself by going to the gym, I love the gym. I also feel most confident when I feel most beautiful inside – it shows on the outside! If I don’t feel like putting on makeup to leave the house, I just add a slick of lipstick to make myself feel sexy
Irina Shayk
Nothing could add to the horror of hell, except the presence of its creator, God. While I have life, as long as I draw breath, I shall deny with all my strength, and hate with every drop of my blood, this infinite lie.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Here’s the general theory: To clarify, add detail. Imagine that. To clarify, add detail. And clutter and overload are not an attribute of information, they are failures of design. If the information is in chaos, don’t start throwing out information, instead fix the design.
Edward Tufte
Work on the Who, the Who, and the Who. Add some Who, and then explore the Who. The What and Where will reveal itself.
T. J. Jagodowski
I look at what the president [Barack Obama] it doing, it adds up to me. We just have to keep – try to get more support for those people on the ground in Syria and Iraq who have to actually physically take the territory back.
Hillary Clinton
Whenever people say, ‘We mustn’t be sentimental,’ you can take it they are about to do something cruel. And if they add, ‘We must be realistic,’ they mean they are going to make money out of it.
Brigid Brophy
I like entertainment and think mastery is good, though I don’t feel like a master. If a theme means having a story that’s legible, then that’s certainly what we do. But we don’t treat design as an add-on layer.
David Rockwell
Are we just pretending to be unhappy so that we can add drama to our lives, so that we seem more substantial?
Jeff Daniels
Ever tried putting a caramel candy in a cup of hot tea? It’s excellent! Not only does it give a little different taste to the tea, but it takes the place of the sugar and cream which you ordinarily add.
When children are allowed to help make family decisions, they tend to be much more supportive and happier with family life. Also when allowed to help make rules, they will follow them much closer than if rules are forced on them. All these add up to a happier home for all.
Rudolf Dreikurs
Forbid a man to think for himself or to act for himself and you may add the joy of piracy and the zest of smuggling to his life.
Elbert Hubbard
I calculated the amount of time I spent with my father during my entire life… the total amount of time I had with him, if you add up the hours, was about two months. My father was a busy man… we had very few opportunities to really sit down and talk as father and son.
Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
Men are shameless in selling their story. Women are often reserved. So we do need to encourage women to know their story and then tell it strategically as to how they can add value.
Jenny Shipley
Except thou desire to hasten thine end, take this for a general rule, that thou never add any artificial heat to thy body by wine or spice.
Walter Raleigh
Pure mathematics offers no mercenary inducements to its followers, who is attracted to it by the importance and beauty of the truths in contains; and the complete absence of any material advantage to be gained by means of it, adds perhaps another charm to its study.
James Whitbread Lee Glaisher
Our attention span is shot. We’ve all got Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD or OCD or one of these disorders with three letters because we don’t have the time or patience to pronounce the entire disorder. That should be a disorder right there, TBD – Too Busy Disorder.
Ellen DeGeneres
I don’t claim to be an expert on this, but I think ADD and creativity may be the same thing; it’s just that they can’t sell you drugs for being creative. Seriously, the world needs people whose minds constantly wander, because that’s how great ideas are stumbled upon.
Hal Elrod
In Mexico we have a trick – add a crystal of salt to the kettle and the tea tastes better, almost English. But after four pots, your kettle’s broken.
Gael Garcia Bernal
Carry your groceries, garden, and do other activities that keep you moving. You will add more years to your life and more life to your years.
Dan Millman
If we say a little it is easy to add, but having said too much it is hard to withdraw and never can it be done so quickly as to hinder the harm of our success.
Saint Francis de Sales
It is dangerous to sit on your laurels, but a lot of the time you only have to add one or two people to the fringes of a winning team to improve it.
Eniola Aluko
Every generation has underestimated the potential for finding new ideas . . . Possibilities do not add up. They multiply.
Paul Romer
The oath adds nothing to the obligation. For a covenant, if lawful, binds in the sight of God, without the oath, as much as with it; if unlawful, bindeth not at all, though it be confirmed with an oath.
Thomas Hobbes
Ultimately, the current argument is “not having net neutrality will hurt innovation,” and you can make that argument, but I would rather make the public good argument, which is not just about innovation or nurturing new companies that will add to the nation’s GDP, it’s actually about creating a democratic public sphere.
Astra Taylor
A lot of NBA GMs have asked me about me why I changed my middle name to Trill. Actually, the reason why I filed the paperwork to change my name was so that I could officially add my mother’s last name, Stein, to my own. My mom is my best friend, and I wanted to honor her.
Willie Cauley-Stein
Whatever you think matters – doesn’t. Follow this rule, and you will add decades to your life.
Roger Rosenblatt
When you’re doing a TV show, it’s not like you just shoot for six weeks and you’re in an editing room with all of your footage. It’s like a guitar or a car, you have to fine tune things. You stop doing what’s not working, you work on what is working and you add things that do work.
Chris Pratt
Fear not lest precautions and protective contrivances diminish your pleasure: mystery only adds thereto.
Marquis de Sade
Logic is the technique by which we add conviction to truth.
Jean de la Bruyere
As Americans, which I suffer from myself, we have ADD.
I guess my height has hurt me as much as it’s helped me. In comedy people don’t mind casting tall women next to shorter men. It adds to the humour.
Allison Janney
At the end of the day the question comes, what are you doing for the world? You have to try to do something that’s going to add something positive.
Paul Feig
When you’re making music or playing a song, I find the moments when there are no instruments being played even stronger than when they are being played. Because they add tension. It’s also an ego-less thing – a place where you have no ego – when you’re with a bunch of musicians who stop and listen instead.
Sarah McLachlan
I’m not averse to being a supporting character. I try to pick parts where I can add something.
Laura Dern
The person with a plan, a picture, will go after thoughts that add value to their thinking.
John C. Maxwell
Pain adds rest unto pleasure, and teaches the luxury of health.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
Titles of honor are like the impressions on coins, which add no value to gold or silver, but only render brass current.
Laurence Sterne
This is enough. Do not add, And why were such things made in the world?
Marcus Aurelius
Over the years, I paid careful attention in client meetings and jotted down things that quite didn’t make sense. And I had the courage to raise questions and to be skeptical when something didn’t add up.
Cathy Engelbert
It takes these very simple-minded instructions – ‘Go fetch a number, add it to this number, put the result there, perceive if it’s greater than this other number’ – but executes them at a rate of, let’s say, 1,000,000 per second. At 1,000,000 per second, the results appear to be magic.
Steve Jobs
You don’t know how people are going to respond. But I would add to that, that getting your heart broken is not the worst thing and it’s actually quite unavoidable. I think in some ways I had to break my father’s heart and then face that in order to have a real relationship with him.
Melissa Febos
Every time you log in to Facebook, every time you click on your News Feed, every time you Like a photo, every time you send anything via Messenger, you add another data point to the galaxy they already have regarding you and your behavior.
Jon Evans
The terrors of the child are quite reasonable, and add to his loveliness; for his utter ignorance and weakness, and his enchanting indignation on such a small basis of capital compel every bystander to take his part.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
In Mali, you hear music everywhere. What is fantastic in Mali is the music tradition is handed down from father to son orally. It is not written. You learn from your father and add something, because you are living now and telling a story to others. This results in many different interpretations of the same song.
Ludovico Einaudi
Style … is a peculiar recasting and heightening, under a certain condition of spiritual excitement, of what a man has to say, in such a manner as to add dignity and distinction to it.
Matthew Arnold
Faith is not logical. But it isn’t illogical either. Faith is theological. It does not ignore reality; it just adds God into the equation.
Mark Batterson
Of what use is a long life, if we amend so little? Alas, a long life often adds to our sins rather than to our virtue!
Thomas a Kempis
You must remember the value that you add to others and not just what others have added to you. That’s how we build self-worth, which, in my opinion, is just as important as net worth.
Suze Orman
I hate all pain, Given or received; we have enough within us The meanest vassal as the loftiest monarch, Not to add to each other’s natural burden Of mortal misery.
Lord Byron
Any man who can write a page of living prose adds something to our life, and the man who can, as I can, is surely the last to resent someone who can do it even better. An artist cannot deny art, nor would he want to. A lover cannot deny love.
Raymond Chandler
Not everyone would choose to pay the costly price of being a great artist. To many, the riches of life are quite different. A skill in day-to-day living which adds up to a happy, love-filled life is success. You can have this and other riches, too. The choice is yours.
W. Clement Stone
When valuing a startup, add $500k for every engineer, and subtract $250k for every MBA.
Aaron Patzer
I focus a lot on my voice because I want it to be an instrument as well. I want my voice to add color.
Theophilus London
Once you’ve taken account of the quality of sibling relationships, knowing about the quality of parenting doesn’t add much information.
Robert J. Waldinger
The best fantasy does not offer an answer to our lives, it is an offering that acknowledges enough of the truth to resonate and add to the understanding about the human condition.
Isobelle Carmody
You look at women like Lena Dunham, you look at how women are kind of crafting their own space on the screen. I want to add to that.
Danai Gurira
Anything you put your mind to and add your imagination into can make your life a lot better and a lot more fun.
Taylor Swift
Franklin Roosevelt said the test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance to those who have much; it is whether we provide enough to those who have too little. This reconciliation package fails that test as well.
Patrick J. Kennedy
The important thing about any book is that you have to have a good story and that it has to be exciting. Then it’s nice to add other levels underneath that people can pick up on.
Jonathan Stroud
People who add value to others do so intentionally. I say that because to add value, leaders must give of themselves, and that rarely occurs by accident.
John C. Maxwell
As citizens and children of India – whether we live at home or abroad – we must ask ourselves how we can add to our country’s pride.
Ram Nath Kovind
I intend, before the endgame looms, to die sitting in a chair in my own garden with a glass of brandy in my hand and Thomas Tallis on the iPod. Oh, and since this is England, I had better add, “If wet, in the library.” Who could say that this is bad?
Terry Pratchett
When faced with a challenge, happy families, like happy people, just add a new chapter to their life story that shows them overcoming the hardship. This skill is particularly important for children, whose identity tends to get locked in during adolescence.
Bruce Feiler
You’re always having to live more to fuel something new. It’s an obligation to yourself and to the audience. The personal baggage that comes with being a known actor just adds to that struggle.
Sean Penn
I am a meat-loving Southern girl. Add in being a writer, and that means I drink more than I should, too.
Sarah Lacy
Many artists would want a major label. But, if someone made you big, it doesn’t mean they’re no longer good enough when you get big. If you want to add, add. But don’t get rid of your original team.
Romeo Santos
The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act.
Marcel Duchamp
Most people have no idea how much goes into designing a typeface. Twenty-six letters in the alphabet, usually with two versions of each, upper and lower case. Punctuation and alternate characters and numbers – let’s not forget numbers – can add another 40 or so.
Michael Bierut
My view is that we have the Second Amendment rights to bear arms, and in this country my view is that we should not add new legistlation. I do not believe in new laws restricting gun ownership and gun use.
Mitt Romney
I need not add that freedom is a dangerous thing. But it is hardly possible that we are all cowards.
Jack Parsons
I don’t really use any face products anymore because they make me break out. I like natural remedies. I usually put honey on my face. Sometimes, I put sugar in it so it’s an exfoliant, too. I add raw coconut oil, which is good as a face wash and a moisturizer.
Kali Uchis
The important thing is how much consciousness you add to the whole of human existence, for that is how eternity expresses itself.
Deepak Chopra
… Allow yourself a space of quiet, wherein you can add to your knowledge of the Good and learn to curb your restlessness. Guard also against another kind of error: the folly of those who weary their days in much business, but lack any aim on which their whole effort, nay, their whole thought, is focused.
Marcus Aurelius
The Rock’n’Blues Fest is my kind of festival series! It’s always great playing shows with my brother and, add to that, all the other great artists and their bands and this should make for one historic round of concerts.
Johnny Winter
Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add but when there is no longer anything to take away, when a body has been stripped down to its nakedness.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.
W. C. Fields
I’m a believer but to reach the top I have to believe more, endure more. When I do two hours of practice, I need to add 30 minutes more. I need to feel something inside to go further.
Gael Monfils
Language is too complex for a computer to understand. It’s not going to be able to make sense of what people are saying en masse. We need a new type of discipline that puts together computer scientists and social scientists, who can add context to the situation.
Noreena Hertz
The greatest service which can be rendered any country is to add a useful plant to its culture. –The Fruit Hunters
Thomas Jefferson
How then did it work out, all this? How did one judge people, think of them? How did one add up this and that and conclude that it is liking one felt, or disliking?
Virginia Woolf
Harmonics are vibrations a fraction of the length of the vibrating string, which add higher-pitched and more complex content to the notes. With a dull instrument, the harmonics die out, but with a sustaining instrument, the harmonics continue to sound along with the fundamental note.
Steve Albini
Every step by which men add to their knowledge and skills is a step also by which they can control other men.
Max Lerner
Take a job, do it for ten years and work at it, and you’ll succeed. Can I just add, take a job that you enjoy. If you don’t enjoy the job, it’s going to be a decade of hell.
Eric Bolling
Eloquence is a painting of thought; and thus those who, after having painted it, add something more, make a picture instead of a portrait.
Blaise Pascal
Almost any biographer, if he respects facts, can give us much more than another fact to add to our collection. He can give us the creative fact; the fertile fact; the fact that suggests and engenders.
Virginia Woolf
I love making my Instagram look cohesive – look like a Tumblr page almost. When they all make sense colorwise, or when you add those white borders to them, it makes them look cleaner. Clean and precise.
Ariana Grande
Going meat-free can make a huge difference. Studies show that vegetarians are, on average, 10 to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters and that a vegetarian diet reduces our risk of heart disease by 40 percent and adds seven or more years to our lifespan.
Ingrid Newkirk
I aspire to make a record that sounds better 10 listens in than it does after two, and still, at 50 listens, you’re picking out things that add a depth and a thoughtfulness to it; there’s enough in there that you can still be extracting pieces out of it.
Trent Reznor
When people want to sound smart, they add syllables to words, words to sentences, sentences to paragraphs, paragraphs to books. They try to make up in quantity and complexity what they lack in quality. That’s bullshit! They’re just hiding their bullshit!
Robert McKee
Sitting at a candidate rally is similar to sitting in a ballyard. Both give you the opportunity to assess the technical metrics and reflect on the intangibles – what baseball calls “make up” and politics calls “character” – the leadership, talent and maturity to add value to a venture.
Christine Pelosi
Clean energy is the ultimate growth strategy for our economy – one that would add millions more good-paying jobs right here in the United States.
Tom Steyer
The sum of all known value and respect, I add up in you, whoever you are.
Walt Whitman
I run, therefore I am. And given the years improved fitness adds to our lives, if I did not run, maybe I would no longer be.
Hal Higdon
For me, the main thing is spontaneity and taking chances. You have to study and know the traditions, but then you have to play things that haven’t been played before. It becomes a balance of knowing the tradition and using your own original voice to add to it.
Dave Kikoski
End racial and ethnic gerrymandering, stop voter I.D. laws that seek to suppress voters of color, and make sure everyone can add their voice and their vote to this great democracy.
Beto O’Rourke
It has been said that self-respect is the gate of heaven, and the most cursory observation shows that a degree of reserve adds vastly to the latent force of character.
Henry Theodore Tuckerman
Life + a cat … adds up to an incalculable sum.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Galton’s eccentric, sceptical, observing, flashing, cavalry-leader type of mind led him eventually to become the founder of the most important, significant and, I would add, genuine branch of sociology which exists, namely eugenics.
John Maynard Keynes
My everyday look has definitely become more low maintenance, but accessories are everything. A structured bag, statement jewelry or a cute scarf can add polish to any outfit!
Adriana Lima
I have kind of a weird technique with zucchini. I cut it into small cubes; sweat it in olive oil, adding just a little oil at time so it crisps. Then I cover it with boiling water, not stock, which really brings out the flavor of the zucchini, add lemon, thyme, and serve it with burrata and a fried zucchini flower.
Tom Colicchio
You cannot cover the 50 million new people Obama seeks to cover without more doctors and nurses. But the administration and even the Blue Dogs in the House have proposed nothing to add to the supply of medical services even as they plan vastly to increase the demand by covering new people.
Dick Morris
Sixteen games, to me, is a long enough schedule for anybody. We’re already concerning ourselves with head injuries and bodily harm to all of the professional athletes. Add to extra games to it, (and) you are just increasing those risks.
Emmitt Smith
The musical emotion springs precisely from the fact that at each moment the composer withholds or adds more or less than the listener anticipates on the basis of a pattern that he thinks he can guess, but that he is incapable of wholly divining. . . .
Claude Levi-Strauss
The only thing I’d rather own than Windows is English. Then I’d be able to charge you an upgrade fee every time I add new letters like N and T.
Scott McNealy
Beware of the conversationalist who adds “in other words.” He is merely starting afresh.
Christopher Morley
Plato is philosophy, and philosophy, Plato,–at once the glory and the shame of mankind, since neither Saxon nor Roman have availed to add any idea to his categories.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A good autobiography is like a document: a mirror of the age on which people can ‘depend.’ In a novel, by contrast, it’s not the facts that matter, but precisely what you add to the facts.
Imre Kertesz
Being a young woman is difficult enough, but add to that the pressures of Hollywood’s spotlight, and you have a lot to navigate.
Amanda de Cadenet
My body is damaged from music in two ways. I have a red irritation in my stomach. It’s psychosomatic, caused by all the anger and the screaming. I have scoliosis, where the curvature of your spine is bent, and the weight of my guitar has made it worse. I’m always in pain, and that adds to the anger in our music.
Kurt Cobain
I could add her to the long list of people I didn’t understand.
Charlaine Harris
Post-modernism has cut off the present from all futures. The daily media add to this by cutting off the past. Which means that critical opinion is often orphaned in the present.
John Berger
Our main task is not to see that people of great wealth add to it, but that those without much money have a greater chance to earn some.
Mitch Daniels
If you just add all the time, add more and more light, it loses its meaning.
James Turrell
If you want to win friends, make it a point to remember them. If you remember my name, you pay me a subtle compliment; you indicate that I have made an impression on you. Remember my name and you add to my feeling of importance.
Dale Carnegie
Pornography is the quadraphonics of sex. It adds a third and fourth track to the sexual act. It is the hallucination of detail that rules. Science has already habituated us to this microscopics, this excess of the real in its microscopic detail, this voyeurism of exactitude.
Jean Baudrillard
I’m very happy by myself – I’m lucky in that way – if I’ve got enough to read and something to write about and a bit of alcohol for me to add an edge, not to dull it.
Christopher Hitchens
I am thinking,’ he remarked quietly, ’whether I shall add to the disorder in this room, by scattering your brains about the fireplace.
Wilkie Collins
Of all the animal creations of God, main is the only animal who has been created in order that he may know his Maker. Man’s aim is life is not therefore to add from day to day to his material prospects and to his material possessions, but his predominant calling is, from day to day to come nearer to his own Maker.
Mahatma Gandhi
James Michael and I played everything on the album, then brought in the guys in my band to add their spirit to it with solos and specific parts.
Deana Carter
Jesus was a pothead- long hair, beard, sandals, carpenter- do the math it all adds up. Living with twelve guys with no visible means of support.
Ralphie May
A buddy will keep you honest and add a dimension of fun to your workout.
Bill Toomey
As you suggested I have in the following disputed certain passages, trusting you will do me the justice either to modify the same or add a note in the new edition stating that I dispute,’ etc.
Denis Kearney
I am blessed with a good metabolism, and as long as I work out, carbs don’t add to my weight. If I need a leaner, meaner look for a film, I go off carbs for a bit.
Arjun Rampal
I was curious about experimenting with different colors – kind of like having an expanded orchestra. Suddenly, instead of just writing for strings, you can add bassoon and oboe and brass. I like these extreme differences in sounds right next to each other.
Caroline Shaw
They were maps that lived, maps that one could study, frown over, and add to; maps, in short, that really meant something.
Gerald Durrell
Versatile Tangerine is striking enough to stand on its own and adds vitality to a printed pattern. Good natured and friendly, but with a tangy edge, this fun-loving color invites a smile.
Leatrice Eiseman
…it is up to us to add labors to labors in order to go from strength to strength (Ps. 83:7), and to come to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ (Eph. 4:13)?
Seraphim of Sarov
I can multitask like crazy. I’m riddled with ADD – a blessing and a curse.
Glenn Beck
I look for lessons in every experience. It adds to my leadership abilities.
Omarosa Manigault
Fantasy has had some problems with being too repetitive, in my opinion. I try to read what other people are doing – and say, ‘How can I add to this rather than just recycle it? How can I stand on Tolkien’s shoulders rather than stand tied to his kneecaps?
Brandon Sanderson
Know that every mother occasionally feels “at the end of her rope.” When you reach the end of your rope, don’t add guilt to your frustration. No one said motherhood was going to be easy.
Heather King
It’s estimated that across Africa 100 elephants are killed for their tusks every day. It takes nothing more than simple math to get to what that adds up to in a year, and it’s a distressing figure.
Graydon Carter
We are like artists by nature, constantly we’re trying to add beauty to movements.
Renzo Gracie
The question was, in a sense, at Princeton Review, how much value was I adding as a public company CEO. I was adding less than other people might’ve… I think you want to move on when you’ve given your best work and then feel that you’re not going to add as much value moving forward.
John Katzman
Sometimes you accidentally input an extra digit into the year: i.e, 19993 and you add 18,000 years on to *now*, and you realize that the year 19993 will one day exist and that time is a scary thing, indeed.
Douglas Coupland
I love exploring the past lives, just because I think it adds so much dimension to a personality.
Rachel Boston
I think anything emotional adds to your acting and singing, no matter what it is that you go through. It will always add to it, never take away.
Kelli O’Hara
We wanted to step off our island and add the color of the third world. We got gold cigarette paper and stuck it around our teeth. We really did look like pirates and dressed to look the part.
Vivienne Westwood
The secret to success is… is no secret. It’s called work your Ass off and find a way to add more value to peoples lives than anyone else does!
Tony Robbins
I am tired of kissing on screen. I have to do it because it is synonymous with me. Also, the producers and directors want to add that element. I don’t give it too much importance.
Emraan Hashmi
I can come up sometimes with ideas for scenes that I’m not in, to make it better or add something. It’s not about me, or my ego, that I wanna show this or that.
Noomi Rapace
When I was born, my dad and my mom gave me names, but in Africa, when your child is born, especially close family members can suggest names they want to add on.
Dikembe Mutombo
I intend, before the endgame looms, to die sitting in a chair in my own garden with a glass of brandy in my hand and Thomas Tallis on the iPod. Oh, and since this is England, I had better add, ‘If wet, in the library.’ Who could say that this is bad?
Terry Pratchett
That said, I should also add that I learned a great deal from being allowed in these privileged circles and am grateful for the opportunity to have worked closely with some of the most powerful and successful people in the business including Steven Spielberg and Ted Turner.
Douglas Wood
Diego Costa is a good example. He’s doing very well, and he’s arguably one of the best strikers in the world, so I have to see what he does and add it to my game.
Tammy Abraham
I am quite bereft that I’ve lost the emoticons from my latest new old berry. Is there anyway [sic] I can add them.
Hillary Clinton
Nothing adds such dignity to character as the recognition of one’s self- sovereignty.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
When I’m on the couch, I usually have the TV on and my MacBook Air nearby. And sometimes, when my ADD is really kicking in, I have my iPad too. And my iPhone. And a magazine that I haven’t gotten to. And a book under the pillow to my left.
Aubrey Plaza
A quarrel between friends, when made up, adds a new tie to friendship.
Saint Francis de Sales
I can only imagine how difficult it must be for someone facing racial or social prejudices to add autism to their list of struggles. It might be less stressful and at times, easier, to ignore the autism.
Liane Holliday Willey
I think the accurate description for the George W. Bush administration is a military plutocracy. Having lived and worked in the United States, I must add that I don’t want to make too much of the distinction between the Bush regime and its predecessors. I don’t see a great deal of difference.
John Pilger
The doctor, if he forgets he is only the assistant to nature and zealously takes over the stage, may so add to what nature is already doing well that he actually throws the patient into shock by the vigour he adds to nature’s forces.
Herbert Ratner
The gamester, if he die a martyr to his profession, is doubly ruined. He adds his soul to every other loss, and by the act of suicide, renounces earth to forfeit Heaven.
Charles Caleb Colton
People think a watch must weigh a lot to be a luxury. But there’s no reason why we should add weight to create value. People have to overcome these notions.
Richard Mille
I think I should be described as ‘bi’ – not bisexual, because I’m not – I’m gay – but ‘binational’ because I retain British nationality, and I add to it being Australian, which is like having your cake and eating it.
Miriam Margolyes
‘NewsHour’ is very interested in poetry, but they’re also interested in not just that something’s cute to add on at the end of their programming, but something that actually is integrated into the news.
Natasha Trethewey
We have fought for social justice. We have fought for economic justice. We have fought for environmental justice. We have fought for criminal justice. Now we must add a new fight – the fight for electoral justice.
Barbara Boxer
The intuitive wisdom that comes from your infinite mind can add to your creativity, success and well-being, and can take you to the threshold of enlightenment.
Frederick Lenz
I’d like to add her initial to my monogram.
Ira Gershwin
With ADD, you’re curious. You’re eyes believe what they see. Your ears believe what others say. I learned to trust my eyes.
Paul Orfalea
I have a lot of suits, but I’m not the kind of person who looks good in a suit. Suits are too serious for me. They are better if you can break the rules, so that’s why I always try to add something crazy to them.
Alessandro Michele
I do not hold that because the author did a bad job of writing the player need trump it with the same kind of acting. When I go into a picture I have only one character to look after. If the author didn’t do him justice, I try to add whatever the creator of the part overlooked.
William Powell
Philosophy consists very largely of one philosopher arguing that all others are jackasses. He usually proves it, and I should add that he also usually proves that he is one himself.
H. L. Mencken
Now all we need is to continue to speak the truth fearlessly, and we shall add to our number those who will turn the scale to the side of equal and full justice in all things.
Lucy Stone
When I’m sitting around watching a game with some friends, and we’re all excited, and Jordan is driving in, we might say, ‘Come on Mike, break me off a little somethin’-somethin’.’ I decided to take that and translate it into what I do on ‘SportsCenter.’ Just add statistics.
Stuart Scott
I don’t think I will ever write about politics or foreign policy. I feel like there is so much good writing in those areas that I have little to add. I also like to steer clear of writing about people whom I do not personally like.
Malcolm Gladwell
Maybe some percentage that’s substantially larger than 95 percent of VCs add zero value. I would bet that 70-80 percent add negative value to a startup in their advising.
Vinod Khosla
We didn’t start at ‘Fallout 3’ and think about how to add to that. We take a step back and think, ‘Okay, if we look at all the ‘Fallout’ games, what would a new one feel like?’ So the focus is not ”Fallout 3′ plus this’. Then we start really digging into the world.
Todd Howard
Simplify, then add lightness.
Colin Chapman
Make bold choices and make mistakes. It’s all those things that add up to the person you become.
Angelina Jolie
A bad manner spoils everything, even reason and justice; a good one supplies everything, gilds a No, sweetens a truth, and adds a touch of beauty to old age itself.
Baltasar Gracian
We must add our voices to those who cry out that there is a standard below which we will not allow human beings to live, and that that standard is not at the freezing nor starving point….In a democracy all are responsible.
Hannah G. Solomon
There’s no problem so awful that you can’t add some guilt to it and make it even worse!
Bill Watterson
Hegel remarks somewhere that all great, world-historical facts and personages occur, as it were, twice. He has forgotten to add: the first time as tragedy, the second as farce.
Karl Marx
I do not add a penny to the national debt.
Hillary Clinton
You can’t have community as an add-on to a monetized life. You have to actually need each other.
Charles Eisenstein
I love a little distortion across the bass; I think it kind of adds something to the sound of the band when the bass is a little overdriven.
Nikki Sixx
I’ve developed my passion for cars that drive themselves from being stuck in traffic for many, many, many hours of my life. I don’t know what it adds up to, but I feel like I’ve lost a year or two just in traffic. That’s big to me. That’s a lot of time, a lot of money that I just lose on the road.
Sebastian Thrun
I’m the only one in my family who doesn’t cook, but I can do a Swiss dish called frittatensuppe. You make a thin omelet from eggs, flour and parsley, then roll and cut it in the shape of tagliatelle and add broth. It’s a tradition we adopted.
Margherita Missoni
It was amazing feeling to be able to be involved in invention, but not just invention – the creating of a marketplace that had real value to add.
Blythe Masters
Immersing yourself in the environment of a real record store where music is celebrated and cherished adds real value to the experience of buying music. In some ways, that retail experience is as important as the music.
John Mellencamp
Each of us has a creation tale – how we came into this world. And I’ll add this: each of us has an uncreation tale – how our lives came apart. That which undoes us. Sooner or later, it will claim you. Mark you. More than your creation.
Michael Hainey
The general belief is that communists in the United Nations come only from the Iron Curtain countries, but this isn’t so. We must remember that many of the representatives of free countries are members of the local Communist parties. If you add them all up, you will see they have an amazing degree of control.
G. Edward Griffin
Paul Ryan is loved in our state because he’s a conservative who has advocated for conservative policies, and Donald Trump coming out saying favorable things about Mr. Ryan’s opponent doesn’t add to the number of voters in Wisconsin that’ll vote Donald Trump.
Sean Duffy
…all of our laments could not add a single second to her life, not one additional beat of the heart, nor a breath.
Audrey Niffenegger
Being in the Midwest, you get the best of all worlds and add your own flavor to it.
Big Sean
If at times my productions do not express the conventionally beautiful, there is always an effort to express the universal beauty of man’s continuous struggle to lift his social position and to add dimension to his spiritual being.
Jacob Lawrence
A number of the pundits said well, if a couple of the other candidates drop out, if you add their scores together they don`t understand that as they drop out, we`ll get the votes.
Donald Trump
The President’s call for more math and science students is not being heeded by his party’s leaders in Congress. They are cutting over $10 billion from student aide while refusing to fully fund No Child Left Behind. Something doesn’t add up.
Jim Clyburn
No one person can change the world, but one and one and one add up.
Sylvie Guillem
I am ashamed to be a member of the human race but I don’t want to add any more to that shame, I want to scrape a little of it off.
Charles Bukowski
I feel like we have so much to add to this book called the American Dream, and I want to add our chapter to it. I want to talk about what it means to be brown American and this concept of what I feel is the New Brown America.
Hasan Minhaj
I think that my sensitivity to music has actually deepened and expanded as I’ve gotten older. You add more life experience.
Rosanne Cash
The more you subtract, the more you add.
Jean Kilbourne
Education is the process in which we discover that learning adds quality to our lives. Learning must be experienced.
William Glasser
I love pointy nails! A cute way to add a pop of color to your nails is to make a V-shape at the ends of them in a pastel color.
Bella Thorne
You cannot take away one atom of matter or one foot-pound of force. You cannot add to the universe one atom of matter or one foot-pound of force. As such, evolution does not come out of zero; then, where does it come from? From previous involution.
Swami Vivekananda
There’s a sadness to the human condition that I think music is good for. It gives a counterpoint to the visual beauty, and adds depth to pictures that they wouldn’t have if the music wasn’t there.
Mike Figgis
There is an unlucky tendency … to allow every new invention to add to life’s complications, and every new power to increase life’s hustling; so that, unless we can dominate the mischief, we are really the worse off instead of the better.
Vernon Lee
Revenue on the consumption of foreign articles is paid cheerfully by those who can afford to add foreign luxuries to domestic comforts.
Thomas Jefferson
I always do book signings with the same blue pen. That way, if I add a personalised message to a book I’ve already signed, it’ll be in the same colour as my signature.
John Grisham
Songs definitely add to the excitement about a movie.
Sriram Raghavan
A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there-even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity.
Robert Doisneau
What you eat, how much you exercise, what example you set for those you influence are all matters of choice. Consistently making that best choice will add up to living your best life. Your health is the key to that.
Adam Rodriguez
You’ve no future unless you add value, create projects.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
I don’t always succeed in creating a delicious dinner for my family; I would, however, argue for the likely success of Taco Night. Who doesn’t love a taco? Make it with veggie crumbles! Add fish! Have you tried ground buffalo? The results are always impressive.
Corin Tucker
My objection to Christianity is that it is infinitely cruel, infinitely selfish, and, I might add, infinitely absurd.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Jason decided not to add that the best way to get him to focus on something was to tell him not to think about it.
Brandon Mull
Nothing is beautiful, only man: on this piece of naivete rests all aesthetics, it is the first truth of aesthetics. Let us immediately add its second: nothing is ugly but degenerate man – the domain of aesthetic judgment is therewith defined.
Friedrich Nietzsche
That’s a good thing for me. I own everything, I have 100% creative control, I own all my masters, everything. I’m blessed to be in that situation. If we sell some records, I think we’ll just add to the historic pace that this has been going at.
There’s no such thing as the contemporary novel. Before I seem the complete reactionary, let me add that I’ve happily joined in many discussions about ‘the contemporary novel’ where what that usually, unproblematically means is novels that have appeared recently or may appear soon.
Graham Swift
I think it’s really important to mix cardio with toning, so I love boxing and then add in Pilates or ballet to keep me long and lean and avoid bulking up.
Lily Aldridge
Add a sprinkling of folly to your long deliberations.
In the long run, our most deeply held desires will govern our choices, one by one and day by day, until our lives finally add up to what we have really wanted most–for good or otherwise. We can indeed have eternal life, if we really want it, so long as we don’t want something else more.
