I don’t think the Palestinian people or Afghan children or some other things I’m concerned about are at the top of other people’s agendas – not right now, when America is going through such a recession and people are suffering across the board financially. But I think all that will change.

Hayley Hasselhoff
I don’t have a problem with a board that advises, that supervises, one with which we can have a discussion. But we will never accept a board that has control over Puerto Rico’s affairs.
Eduardo Bhatia
I was born in Mumbai. We stayed in a joint family. But in 1994, my father had to shift to Pune for business. I started working at a very early stage. Immediately after my SSC board examination, I took up odd jobs in shops, as I wanted to contribute to my family.
Amruta Khanvilkar
Every company I know is looking for more women at the table. Every board is looking for more women at the table. There’s a reason why men want to understand the challenges women face, address them, because then they’re going to be better hirers, attracters and retainers of women.
Sheryl Sandberg

William Henry Ashley
To be honest, I knew pretty much nothing about Watford as a town or a club. But I feel so comfortable – the players, the staff, the board, and the fans have made me so welcome.
Especially in local elections, because hardly anybody pays attention to those – but it’s really important who’s mayor and who’s on the city council, county commissioners, sheriffs, district attorney, and of course the school board.
Jello Biafra
My family was never happy with me. I could just say that across the board.

Daniel Radcliffe

P. J. O’Rourke
It’s easy to feel spurned, especially when you return to your apartment and stare at the hundreds of rejection letters tacked to your bulletin board.

James Gray
I made and created a show that my family was all on board with, and we were so excited because we got to work together.
Kris Jenner

I’m not precisely saying that a really good board meeting at the MLA (Museums, Libraries and Archives Coucil) makes me want to go and write poetry, but there is a pleasure in doing that sort of thing well.

My mood board says that there should be a G.O.O.D. Music festival. Why not? Like, we haven’t – I don’t think – and I think all of the G.O.O.D. Music artists and affiliates are doing so many different things that we never get to Voltron up. So that would be a thing of mine.
Pusha T
One of the inspirations for my becoming a writer was the baseball board game Strat-O-Matic.

I’m on the board of a national group called Faith in America. It’s designed to fight religious-based bigotry.
James McGreevey
There was never a time you could get the majority of people in Alabama or Mississippi, or even southern Delaware, to vote to end segregation. What changed things was the rule of law, the courts. Brown v. Board of Education was ushered in by a movement, but it was a legal decision.
Bryan Stevenson
Crazy people are my people? Really? I think that’s silly. That’s another one of those pigeonhole things. Lay somebody on an ironing board and put a scalding hot iron on them, get that going real good: ‘Oh, this is who Holly Hunter is.’
Holly Hunter
No one person controls Microsoft. The board and the shareholders decide whether they want to have me as CEO.

Sandra E. Peterson
Frankly, Donald Trump won the candidacy for the Republican Party. Let’s get on board and help him win.
Michael T. Flynn
Financing for ‘Shotgun Stories’ was initiated with money from close friends and family. This is where the money to go into production came from. After production, a company called ‘Upload Films’ came on board and provided post-production funds and services. In both instances, people were taking a gamble on us.
Jeff Nichols
‘You’re fired’ was not a part of the deal. And when I went into the first board room, the very first one, I’m looking at these people, and I had to fire somebody, but we never thought in terms of the expression ‘You’re fired.’

Many of us have questions about what Trump’s positions really are. We want to make sure we are on board with each other.

Curtis Stone
When I was at school, one of my teachers had two statements hanging from the board all year: ‘Be observant’ and ‘Be empathetic.’

Anita Sarkeesian
As a songwriter and as a vocalist, Adele is amazing. You have that. But then there’s something about her that’s just very honest. I feel like so many people across the board can relate to her and who she is. She’s just so appealing and very real.
Greg Kurstin
Any board executive can forget just how many people helped them get where they are. Those women who have got to the top need actively to ensure there is a pipeline of younger women, whether by networking or mentoring, who in turn are encouraging those below them.
Karren Brady
Actually I’d had a certain amount of experience in Europe in the inter-war period, as a banker, and I was also a member of the Board of Directors of the International Chamber of Commerce.
W. Averell Harriman
Sex in the City was a different kind of phenomenon because of the show itself is a phenomenon and to me that’s successful because to resonate with women across the board for six years and have only one African-American actor pass through for one episode.
Blair Underwood
The concept of commercialism in the fashion and art world is looked down upon. You know, just to think, ‘What amount of creativity does it take to make something that masses of people like?’ And, ‘How does creativity apply across the board?’
Kanye West
Firms don’t just try to pay as little as possible to get the needed bodies on board; when there is unemployment, they ask themselves how wage cuts would affect the behavior of the employees. Would they quit or feel dissatisfied and work less hard on the firm’s behalf if they feel that wage policies are unfair?
Janet Yellen
It is my opinion that a local school board cannot impose a mandatory fee on students taking advanced placement courses for the required taking of the Advanced Placement Examination.
Ken Cuccinelli
The important thing for my father bringing me on the board of HCL Technologies was to expose me to our largest asset, which is HCL Technologies.

P.K. Subban
I remember when I had to copy writing off the board at school it just looked to me like a magic eye picture, I could just see so many shapes.

I’m not going to speak about any of our investors or board members at all because we don’t.
Alexander Nix
I’ve been on a show before where I was on a billboard and then, after like three or four weeks, they took the billboard down and replaced it with nothing. Took my face down and put a white board up.
Matthew Perry
Showtime has given new, young filmmakers – black, white, across the board – an opportunity to make films, as well as actors who want to cross over into directing.

Viv Richards
Startup culture fosters laughter, debate, and a passionate, non-politically-correct focus on getting things done. And this startup of culture is something entrepreneurs struggle to maintain as the business grows. To ensure this environment continues, create a strong foundation and ensure everyone is on board.
Clay Clark
A lot of people don’t want to vote because they believe the negatives rather than the positives about the outcome of their decisions about the sheriff or councilman or the board of education in their community.
Bushwick Bill
When a parent comes into school waving a book and saying, ‘Take this book away. I don’t like this book.’ I won’t say in all cases, but in many cases, that will not happen anymore. It has to go through a proper review board. The complaining parent will have to fill out a complaint, you know, put it in writing.
Judy Blume
When you experience bereavement at a youngish age, you suddenly realise that life is unjust and unfair, that bad things will happen, and you have to take that on board.

Ted Lieu
Whether football or board games, I love to win.
Ryan Tannehill
I remember once doing a benefit for a Jewish charity and wearing an enormous cross. I kind of don’t let the audience dictate anything to me. I sort of dictate to them, and they better be on board.
Lisa Lampanelli
My father used to always give me a basketball, a skate board, and a bike every Christmas. That’s all I wanted every year.
Amar’e Stoudemire
Burnley Football Club helped me mature from a boy to a man and I can’t thank them everyone from the club enough, from the board to the staff at the training ground and the staff at the club.
Danny Ings
I think we did a pretty good role, linking, being a sounding board really and a driving force, especially from the bottom up. I think that part of this is bottom up as well as top down.
Richard Rogers
The term ‘glass ceiling’ was coined in 1984. More than 20 years later, the ceiling has barely cracked. There isn’t a single country in the world that has as many female as male politicians. In business, the situation is even worse. Its highest echelon – the board – remains a chauvinist’s dream.
Noreena Hertz
Banks need to have large shareholders on the board that have a direct interest in their performance.
Mian Muhammad Mansha
We could eliminate sugar across the board for all confectionary products and sodas, and we can replace it with all-natural fresh fruit.

The problem of a rising population destroying more than four tons of soil for every human already alive needs to find its way into corporate board rooms if we are to enjoy future financial, economic and political stability.
Allan Savory
What happens is, you write a spec, people get it, they see your writing, they see you’re good, they bring you into their office, and they say, ‘Boy, that spec was really good – we’ll never make that in a million years. We have rights to the board game of Monopoly. What do you think about a Monopoly movie?’
Robert Ben Garant
It was on a bulletin board that I first learned about hacker culture, the ‘Let’s just break through this wall and see what’s on the other side’ mentality.
Harper Reed
The ratings board is completely different when it comes to film versus the television arena.
Lee Daniels
In Adrenaline Mob, I’m not the leader, but I’m on the board of directors, and that’s OK. I’m not stressing out over every detail. I’m sharing the load.
Mike Portnoy
If you board the wrong train, it is no use running along the corridor in the other direction.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Stoking fears of a potential shutdown is a strong motivational tool to get members on board with legislation that they don’t want to support. Both parties are guilty of this.
Mark Meadows
If somebody’s going on your board, and you’re going to be C.E.O., it will help if that person knows how to be C.E.O., who has done it before.
Ben Horowitz
So for my studio purposes, I know that I’m in my studio with technicians who’ve done amazing things to my board and to my power amps and I know what I can deliver out of my studio.

Nina Tassler
The acting in ‘Downton Abbey’ has been consistently excellent across the board.
James Frain
I make music that surfers dig, but, like Brian Wilson in the Beach Boys, I’m the dude who never gets on the board.
Kevin Parker
It doesn’t matter who scores as long as we win the match. I’ll obviously try to get on the board, but the more important thing is to be prepared for the match.
Son Heung-min
If you crave for Knowledge, the banquet of Knowledge grows and groans on the board until the finer appetite sickens.
Arthur Quiller-Couch
My role is really just to try to make sure that the voice of all shareholders and employees is heard – that no one is bullying their agenda, their choice of a CEO, or their selection of who should be the board members. Benchmark, I believe, has been pushing their agenda at the expense of those stakeholders.
Shervin Pishevar
When we look at the situation in Ferguson, Missouri and the tragic death of Michael Brown, we are reminded of the importance of who we elect to our city councils, who sits on our local board of education committees, who we pick to represent us in Congress, in the Senate and more.
Al Sharpton
Women are not making it to the top. A hundred and ninety heads of state; nine are women. Of all the people in parliament in the world, thirteen per cent are women. In the corporate sector, women at the top – C-level jobs, board seats – tops out at fifteen, sixteen per cent.
Sheryl Sandberg
There’s a lot of things that are said on the American Idol message board. I quit reading them because most of the people are very mean.
Carrie Underwood
Every chef has his treats. By that, I mean bits and pieces from things you’re working on – crusty little cake trimmings, ends from a brisket, collars from a salmon, scraps. But they’re snacks to me, and I eat them right off the cutting board – maybe too much.
Tom Douglas
Earnings don’t move the overall market; it’s the Federal Reserve Board… focus on the central banks, and focus on the movement of liquidity… most people in the market are looking for earnings and conventional measures. It’s liquidity that moves markets.
Stanley Druckenmiller
It is good to kind of put your pride aside for the betterment of the ball club. We are all on board for that, even if you want to go another inning.
Jake Arrieta
Entrepreneurship is like a computer game in which you have to master every level before achieving success. Startups repeatedly stumble and have to go back to the drawing board. The best way to skip some levels and to increase the odds of survival is to learn from others who have already played the game.
Vivek Wadhwa
I think, as you move to the upper ranks of science – ranks being positions of influence and access – you see fewer female faces. And I think the basic reason is the same reason that you don’t see a lot of female faces in Congress or on the Supreme Court or on the directing board of Fortune 500 companies.
Hope Jahren
Selling a film option and getting a studio on board can be a slow process, and until things are official, you never want to spill the beans.
Taylor Jenkins Reid
After your knife and your cutting board, quality pots and pans are the most important tools in your kitchen, and a good set can run hundreds, even thousands, of dollars.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
I love what the Valley does. I love company building. I love startups. I love technology companies. I love new technology. I love this process of invention. Being able to participate in that as a founder and a product creator, or as an investor or a board member, I just find that hugely satisfying.
Marc Andreessen
I’d visually have that idea. I’m diving off the end of the diving board. I’m not going to be worried about if I’m going to dive into a jellyfish or the water’s going to be too cold or the boys are going to beat me. I’m just doing it. And if I do it, it’s a good chance I’ll make it.
Gail Sheehy
Martin Luther King Jr. was not just a man of peace. He was a radical pacifist, and so he was against war across the board.
Cornel West
We are a very systems- and process- driven business which reports directly to the board, whether it is risk or legal.
Ajay Piramal
After taking a two-year sabbatical to spend time with my wife and travel the world, I’m excited to join the Twitter Board and help the company advance its mission.
Patrick Pichette
In 1948 the first severe crash occurred in my life when Stalin put out his decree on ‘formalism.’ There was a bulletin board in the Moscow Conservatory. They posted the decree, which said Shostakovich’s compositions and Prokofiev’s were no longer to be played.
Mstislav Rostropovich
The Pakistan Cricket Board is a long-standing joke, its chairmen replaced with every change of government.
Tariq Ali
Killing Intel, I, I just had to resign from the Apple Board.
Arthur Rock
I am a board game enthusiast, a board game evangelist, a board game nerd, but I wouldn’t say I’m ‘keen’ because I very rarely win, and ‘keen’ suggests you’re actually good at something. But I do play a lot of them, and I have a pretty good-sized collection.
Rich Sommer
LA is a harsh city to be in when you’re a little girl from the South, and you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing and you are thinking, ‘Am I making, have I made a massive mistake? I don’t have money to move back home. My parents are not on board with this. What do I do?’
Madelyn Cline
I’m not a poster boy for Conservation International. I’m a working member of the board.
Harrison Ford
When I wanted the CEO of Starbucks to keep me in mind for their board, I sent him a note rather than calling. I call it dripping: You don’t want to be like a faucet full-on; you want to drip just enough that they don’t forget about you.
Mellody Hobson
When trouble strikes, which it always does – bad economy, bad quarter, activists, takeover – when trouble strikes, those board members who don’t understand or are not committed are not helpful.
Carol Bartz
Oh, I’m nerdy about science fiction and fantasy and graphic novels and reading, and I’m nerdy about board games. My favorite board game is a board game I’m working on right now. It’s a game of Napoleonic era naval warfare, and it’s going to be fun.
Billy Campbell
I have to admit, in January and February I was in an absolute fuzz. I had no one on board. It wasn’t that I didn’t know what I was doing, but we didn’t have all the pieces put together.
Donna Shalala
I was one of the first 18-year-olds in the United States elected to public office right after 18-year-olds got the right to vote back in the early ’70s. I ran for the Board of Education.
Michael Moore
If you ask any adult woman in this country to name an iconic romantic comedy, I bet the answer you’ll hear more often than not is going to be ‘When Harry Met Sally.’ If the question were asked on an episode of ‘Family Feud,’ for example, it would place number one on the board.
Camille Perri
I’ve been on the board of UCLA Film and TV School, and I went to UCLA. I realized that the same movie theater that was there when I went to school, 30 years later is the same movie theater in the same condition. There was an opportunity to refurbish an existing room, and I jumped at the opportunity.
Darren Star
I have always been someone who wants to get it right. That started when I ran for school board. It’s an avocation that’s become a full-time job.
Phil Gingrey
The battle goes on for me; as a gay man, I shall not be happy until I see equality across the board.
Rob Halford
I’m not too involved in day-to-day matters. I only supervise at the board level.
Adi Godrej
I first considered writing ‘New York’ in 1991. I’d been in the city for a decade, was married to an American wife, and sending my children to New York schools. I was even on the board of a coop building. But I wasn’t sure how to organize such complex material, and for many years I put the project aside.
Edward Rutherfurd
I believe that architecture, as anything else in life, is evolutionary. Ideas evolve; they don’t come from outer space and crash into the drawing board.
Bjarke Ingels
I loved going surfing down on Venice Beach. I’d go out with a board under my arm and think, ‘I can’t do that in Cranhill.’
Billy Boyd
That’s what we’re here for as quarterbacks is to help our team win, lead the offense down the field and put points on the board.
Ryan Tannehill
Criticism comes with Celtic. If you take it on board, it can make you ill, but if you think: ‘No problem’, it makes you really thick-skinned.
Paul Lambert
Having diversity around the board room, the executive table, and up and down our stores is really important.
Mary Dillon
I’d like to do a film in Canada, but it’s too difficult. National Film Board funding takes too long, and there’s too much paperwork; by the time the film is approved the topic is dead and gone.
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
What I see with the utility industry is, more and more, we’re taking up this belief that our workforce, our leadership ranks, our board should be reflective of the community that we serve.
Geisha Williams
I would like to see the gay population get on board with feminism. It’s a beautiful organisation and they’ve done so much. It seems to me a no-brainer.
Annie Lennox
School boards are, for the most part,made up of political wannabes who see a board seat as a stepping stone for political office, or well-meaning parents who represent an ethnic group or geography, or have some other narrow interests. Few people on them understand what governance is about.
Eli Broad
I’m honored. Really honored that the Red Sox have asked me to possible be on the board of the Red Sox Foundation and do some stuff on their charitable works that they are so passionate about.
Tim Wakefield
The role of a board of directors is to be a sounding board for the vision of the company – to hold executives accountable in executing that vision and to ensure a management succession plan is in place.
Mellody Hobson
Men can be men and still get excited about other men kicking a ball around and they’re never mocked, whereas it’s easy for women to take mocking on board, to be belittled. Because we’re used to it.
Marian Keyes
I’ve just tried to do everything I can personally to be the best quarterback I can be, whether it’s doing extra work for my rehab, extra work in the film room, on the board, extra work out on the field with my drops and footwork.
Ryan Tannehill
The College Board is both in the business of test administration and test prep. If this feels inherently unfair, it should – it’s like a doctor whacking your knee with a sledgehammer and then offering to patch you up.
Eliot Schrefer
Create an inspiration board before your trip! If you’re like me and love photography, food, and great experiences, chances are you have a Pinterest board filled with travel inspo.
Eva Gutowski
I used to have to go to the board and hit three 180s before I’d allow myself to go to bed. Sometimes, I’d do it in five minutes but, on a bad night, it could take an hour.
Phil Taylor
Across the board, from my mother to my father to my aunts and uncles, everybody has always given me a lot of love.
Amos Lee
I never feel comfortable! I’m always anxious. I’m always all over the board. That said, I like doing comedy because it’s easy to tell when you’re getting it right because people laugh, and you can hear it, and they’re smiling, and you can see it.
Lucy Punch
When the price of oil goes up, the entire Texas economy takes a deep breath. Millionaires blossom like rain lilies. News races through the countryside that the money train is pulling into the station. Hop on board!
Lawrence Wright
At 14, I began working in radio. I ran the board at a little radio station in Dallas.
Elvis Duran
In my space journey, I felt vulnerable because we did not have anyone with medical background. When we make that big trip to Mars, we would need a doctor on board.
Sunita Williams
I feel like now fashion is just part of how I think about everything. When I send out a mood board to our contributors every month about our monthly theme, there are photos from our fashion shows, but there are also film stills and album art.
Tavi Gevinson
If D-Day – the greatest amphibious operation ever undertaken – failed, there would be no going back to the drawing board for the Allies. Regrouping and attempting another massive invasion of German-occupied France even a few months later in 1944 wasn’t an option.
Douglas Brinkley
When I was around eleven or twelve, my board got hung up on the top of a bowl, and I got a concussion, and I knocked my teeth out. That was the first time that I got seriously injured, and I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance, and my parents briefly doubted.
Tony Hawk
Our science and advisory board think that nuclear lamin dysfunction is a side-effect of DNA damage and mutations, rather than the cause. We are currently trying to mend nuclear dysfunction using Human Telomerase reverse transcriptase.
Liz Parrish
You look across the board at comedy quiz shows, and they are mainly hosted by men.
Jo Brand
I come to New Orleans so often that, one day soon, someone’s going to declare me a native. I love the food. I love the music. I serve on the board of the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.
Soledad O’Brien
And I’ve tried to give us a higher profile. Typically, at a board meeting, we’d pass resolutions about the civil-rights issue of the day, but we’d never tell anyone. So I’ve instituted a policy of announcing our resolutions at the end of our meetings.
Julian Bond
I was on the board of Teach for America. And we transformed a failed public school system in the City of New Orleans, probably the most corrupted and failed system in the country.
Steve Scalise
It was the nearest to a casualty on the Spray in her whole course, so far as I know. The young man having come on board with compliments made the mishap most embarrassing.
Joshua Slocum
Getting plenty of sleep is always great. It really is. I have a girlfriend who’s sending me a slant board.
Bernadette Peters
With every positive, there is a negative across the board in life. It’s about choosing to see the positive and working with the negative.
Kate Gosselin
There is a degree of confidence exhibited towards strangers in Sweden, especially in hotels, at post-stations, and on board the inland steamers, which tells well for the general honesty of the people.
Bayard Taylor
I am excited to join the Workday Board at an exciting time in the company’s growth and look forward to leveraging my past experience as a technologist and entrepreneur to provide advice as they continue to look at new areas of growth.
Jerry Yang
I really love New York, but I have to say, the humidity during the summer is a nightmare for a cartoonist. Not only am I sweating in my studio, my bristol board is curling up, the drafting tape is peeling off the board, my Rapidograph pens bleed the minute I put them to paper… it’s a disaster.
Adrian Tomine
Anytime someone uses one of my songs for anything – a ceremony or a sacred moment – that, to me, is a high honor. I’m proud of the song at that point because I’m trying to write something for humans – whichever humans want to get on board and put this in their soundtrack to their soul’s development or spiritual lives.
Jason Mraz
Across the board, women are unhappy with our industry.
Abigail Johnson
Growing up in Silicon Valley, during my time at Morgan Stanley and as a member of Stanford’s Board, I’ve had the opportunity to experience firsthand how tech companies can help people in their daily lives.
Ruth Porat
I was on the state board of directors of the American Civil Liberties Union.
Betty Hill
At the turn of the twentieth century, board games were becoming increasingly commonplace in middle-class homes. In addition, more and more inventors were discovering that the games were not just a pastime but also a means of communication.
Mary Pilon
My main goal is to be the No. 1 American and the No. 1 player in the world. If an American is on top of the leader board every week, it will bring more people into the game of golf.
Paula Creamer
I can’t tell you how many board meetings I’ve been in where the CEO is anguished over the impacts on morale that cost cutting or layoffs will bring about. You know what hurts morale even more than cost-cutting and layoffs? Going out of business.
Heidi Roizen
We should all be obliged to appear before a board every five years and justify our existence… on pain of liquidation.
George Bernard Shaw
I like to play board games a lot with my girl, things like that. We attempt to cook. And even if it goes wrong, it doesn’t matter because it’s the time you spend doing it that’s important.
Sam Worthington
I am on the board of corporations who contribute both to environmental problems and their solutions. And I am on the NGO side: the Earth Council and other organizations.
Maurice Strong
I have a song called ‘I Don’t Even Know Your Name’ which I think is going to be well liked across the board.
Shawn Mendes
I sit on the board of Cloudera, a big vantage point of big data.
Aneel Bhusri
I am deeply honored by the trust the board has placed in me to lead Duke Energy. I have a high degree of confidence in the strength of our company’s leadership and dedicated employees.
Lynn Good
It’s very important for the parents of young autistic children to encourage them to talk, or for those that don’t talk, to give them a way of communicating, like a picture board, where they can point to a glass of milk, or a jacket if they’re cold, or the bathroom.
Temple Grandin
I’m a Hemingway fan, so in a manner of speaking, I’ve been fishing with him already. But man, would I love to board Pilar in Key West and head south until we have a day-long battle with a tarpon, haul that bad boy up, then celebrate by telling lies over rum on a Cuban terrace.
Marcus Sakey
Architecture is my work, and I’ve spent my whole life at a drawing board, but life is more important than architecture. What matters is to improve human beings.
Oscar Niemeyer
I’ll paddle board, swim in the ocean, roll in the sand, soak up the sun, eat good food, be with friends and family and go fishing with my dad.
Behati Prinsloo
I love card games, and I’ve always loved board games and stuff like that as a kid, and I think it’s that part of your brain that’s engaged in con movies. It’s like this ‘Who’s outsmarting whom?’
John C. Reilly
You know, even people who talk about cutting spending and they go ‘That’s not the spending that I was actually talking about that you’re supposed to be cutting.’ Well, we have to be looking across the board.
Ben Quayle
If you have got diversity on your board, then you are going to have new ideas come to the table.
Sol Campbell
I was on the Harvard board of overseers for six years, between 1989 and 1995.
John Lithgow
As CEO of Accenture, I am not French anymore. When I’m in India, I am Indian. We are a company with no physical headquarters. We operate on a virtual level. Our leadership meetings are teleconferences, which is why the Board asked me to stay on in France. And I tell others to stay in their own countries.
Pierre Nanterme
The idea of having proper qualifications had been very much ingrained in me. My father had a steady job for the Potato Marketing Board, and the family emphasis was on getting to university.
Roger Taylor
In this respect I suppose I’m the total opposite of Garry. With his very emotive body language at the board he shows and displays all his emotions. I don’t.
Vladimir Kramnik
We have to have a school board that’s actually gonna be able to function and that has true parent representatives on it.
Lori Lightfoot
I have mutual funds. I have a lot of individual stocks. I’m across the board, really well diversified.
Duff McKagan
Of course, I have a different vested interest in the gay community, because I am gay, and I would certainly enjoy the tax advantages that straight people have, and the inheritance advantages, and things like Social Security, but I’ve always been a civil rights advocate across the board. That’s how I was raised.
Janis Ian
I did cartoons for four high school publications and then and there decided I wanted to spend my life at the drawing board.
Bil Keane
HCL and Wipro are largely controlled by one family, so a strife with the board is not possible.
Roshni Nadar
For ‘Filth,’ we had about 12 producers on the thing. The opening credits go on for months. Most of them are actually financers rather than producers. And the only way that we could raise the budget without interference from a studio was to have a lot of different financers on board.
Irvine Welsh
I would not board a plane piloted by a quota beneficiary or be operated on by a quota doctor.
Jair Bolsonaro
A lot of teams see Lord’s as a special place and up their games to try to get their names on the honours’ board.
James Anderson
I’m on the advisory board of Alex’s Lemonade Stand, which is a children’s cancer charity. I’m so proud to be on that and help them.
Kirsten Vangsness
I’m consistently pro-freedom. No matter where I go, whether it’s Fox or when I’m walking around the block or going to the dog park, I will agree with people on pretty much half of everything. Freedom is something I believe in across the board, and I will fight for that.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
There’s a lot of administrator and ex-administrators and board of regents from Baylor that say that Art Briles was a scapegoat at Baylor. I’ve had calls from ex-chairmen of the board of regents there, current big booster there, lawyers that represent Baylor. I have not had one negative call about Art Briles.
Tilman J. Fertitta
An architect’s most useful tools are an eraser at the drafting board, and a wrecking bar at the site.
Frank Lloyd Wright
One day, I was playing ‘The Game of Life,’ the board game, with a mess of kids, and I wasn’t quite sure how, but it seemed different than the game I remembered playing as a kid. So I bought an old game, from 1960, and it was different.
Jill Lepore
The fact that I’m a Tory who hasn’t worked at a university – at least, not since I taught at Cambridge in 1990 – doesn’t disqualify me from serving on the board of the OfS.
Toby Young
All of these really strong females making names for themselves in what were traditionally male-dominated spaces. And I’m not usually one to get too hung up on the male-vs.-female side of things, but it is interesting to see the dynamic shifting and it’s happening across the board. It’s cool to be a part of that.
Nita Strauss
I’ve definitely done things to change my behaviour. There are certain things you can’t do when you get to a certain level in what you do. When it gets to a certain time, you’re a story to somebody. It is something I have taken on board.
Ben Stokes
Coaches who can outline plays on a black board are a dime a dozen. The ones who win get inside their player and motivate.
Vince Lombardi
At the heart of both democracy and capitalism is a simple assumption that, across the board, people make free and relatively rational decisions: that we are, to borrow a medical term, Gillick Competent.
Nick Harkaway
I am honored to be named chairman of Duke Energy’s board and privileged to lead our company forward for our customers, employees, and shareholders.
Lynn Good
Speech within the kingdom of Amazonia – run by its sovereign Jeff Bezos and his board of directors with help from the wise counsel and judgment of the company’s executives – is not protected in the same way that speech is constitutionally protected in America’s public spaces.
Rebecca MacKinnon
When I’m on TV or whatever, I’m able to bring my instruments, my board, and my sound is intact. But other kids who are on TV, when they’re doing tap, sometimes they’re just on the regular floor. It’s not as safe; it’s not as sound-worthy as it should be.
Savion Glover
Be as polite to the custodian as you are to the chairman of the board.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I wasn’t able to do much reading when I was chairman of the Reserve Board. The workload was too large, and the luxury of reading was not available to me. So I caught up a good deal when I left office.
Alan Greenspan
If you circle above Central Park at night in a helicopter, you’re looking down at the most expensive real estate in the world. It’s the American Monopoly board.
Ridley Scott
Before I drop in, I tend to knock on my snowboard. You know how when you jinx yourself, they’re like, ‘Knock on wood.’ My snowboard’s wood, so in case I jinxed myself sometime in the past, I just knock on my board. It just makes me feel a lot more comfortable.
Chloe Kim
The original way to play beach volleyball was in a bikini and board shorts, and I don’t know what else they want us to wear.
Kerri Walsh Jennings
I know how important it is to take different tactics from different managers on board.
Ross Barkley
I grew up in a business-inspired environment, and over the years have started and run several businesses and philanthropic organizations. Understanding how large corporations work, by having hands-on and board experience, I apply that knowledge to the benefit of all that I do.
Shari Arison
It used to tear me up when we lost games, it stayed in me for weeks. I was a bad loser at everything. When we used to play board games, I had fights with my family and I had to go to my room.
Nathan Ake
I’m trying to figure out, Chairman of what Board? People come up to me and seriously say: ‘Well, what are you Chairman of?’ And I can’t answer them.
Frank Sinatra
I think of myself as playing against the board, and not against my opponent.
Daniel Naroditsky
I’m never surprised by the insensitivity of ‘The New York Times’ editorial board.
Joe Lhota
You speak to the press at the Tour every day, but most often in a negative sense. Ninety per cent of the questions you are asked in the post-race press conferences are challenging or provocative, so you have to justify yourself; you have to try to give the right answers about every topic across the board.
Bradley Wiggins
Get inside information from the president and you will probably lose half your money. If you get it from the chairman of the board, you will lose all of your money.
Jim Rogers
My wife’s brother has a little house on a small island in the Baltic Sea, and we go there at Christmas. The 30-minute crossing from the mainland to this island is the most terrifying cruise you’ll ever take. They give you a barf bag when you walk on board.
Nick Frost
My mom gets mad because she’ll read on Twitter or some message board that Spencer Paysinger is no good, and the Giants need to get rid of him. I tell her to stop reading that stuff because, at the end of the day, the media has no say on what happens in the locker room.
Spencer Paysinger
I was a wrestling fan long enough, and once in a while, I would get bored. I’d be on board with a superstar and love what he’d do. Then eventually, I would get bored with him. I don’t want people to think that way of me, so I’m doing everything I can to make sure it doesn’t happen.
Kevin Owens
I just sit at the drawing board most of the time. I am used to talking to people. I love going to conventions, getting feedback and talking to people. Some artists don’t. Some artists sit at their drawing board because their personality actually dictates that.
David Lloyd
The subtle generational cues that make one thing cool and another uncool aren’t always obvious to a parent. My children are my dinner-table sounding board. I’ve come up with some wonderful ideas that they universally dismissed as ‘lame.’
Nolan Bushnell
It is an honor to join ‘The Nation’s esteemed editorial board.
Zephyr Teachout
Growing up in Augusta in such a protected and loving community is something that I really enjoy talking about. I love talking about – even though I grew up, of course, in the time of segregated schools: Brown vs. Board of Education came along after I was already in first grade.
Jessye Norman
Part of the problem with producing contemporary political theater in America today is that many theaters don’t have flexibility or resources, be it hiring a lot of actors or staging a work that might be tough for some audience and board members.
Theresa Rebeck
When I was 8 or 9, I started using bulletin board systems, which was the precursor to the Internet, where you’d dial into… a shared system and shared computers. I’ve had an email address since the late ’80s, when I was 8 or 9 years old, and then I got on the Internet in ’93 when it was first starting out.
Aaron Patzer
I think that’s a huge theme in superhero books across the board: When you have this massive power, how do you use it responsibly? When do you intervene? Those are the big questions.
G. Willow Wilson
While the World Bank is an inter-governmental institution, drawing its funds from member governments and run by a board of directors nominated by member governments, its policies have increasingly become sensitive to civil society pressure and NGO agendas.
Sanjaya Baru
The key to any good comic strip or television sitcom is to reset the board at the end of the episode because people like familiarity.
Jeff Kinney
I joined the board of the Santa Fe Institute.
Esther Dyson
I’ve been surfing several times, and I’m terrible at it. But what I found was that you’re usually waiting on the board, hanging out, watching the waves come in. And one that you think is a big wave is not actually one.
Andy Grammer
A lot of people, some of them close to me as well, have said that I sacrificed myself by doing what I did in bringing Terry on board. I didn’t see it that way.
Bryan Robson
There has never been a failure of a currency board anywhere in the world. These are tough systems, and when I say they are foolproof, that’s exactly the case.
Steve Hanke
Look at the bark of a redwood, and you see moss. If you peer beneath the bits and pieces of the moss, you’ll see toads, small insects, a whole host of life that prospers in that miniature environment. A lumberman will look at a forest and see so many board feet of lumber. I see a living city.
Sylvia Earle
I wanna put numbers on the board. And the thing that everybody doesn’t get is that it just doesn’t happen. It doesn’t just fall out of the air and land on your lap; the only way to get it is to get it and put the work in.
I’m the chairman of the board of the Actor’s Fund. It’s an incredible organization. It helps anybody that has made their living in the performing arts and entertainment: actors, singers, dancers, film producers, agents, managers, ticket takers, writers, anybody in times of need or crisis.
Brian Stokes Mitchell
If companies can refuse to provide coverage for women, what other objections to the Affordable Care Act will we see based on ‘religious grounds’? For that matter, will ‘religious freedom’ be used as an excuse to discriminate against other minorities and disenfranchised groups across the board? Where will it end?
Al Sharpton
I board with a poor Scotchman: his wife can talk scarce any English.
David Brainerd
I enjoy all my relationships with my husband, my kids, my sisters and my girlfriends and maintaining a healthy relationships across the board nurtures my soul.
Denise Austin
Then you have to convince the players and get them on board with what you are doing, and after that you can start to build. But the identity is the foundation for everything.
Mikel Arteta
And God said, ‘Let there be light’ and there was light, but the Electricity Board said He would have to wait until Thursday to be connected.
Spike Milligan
Both my brothers played football. My mother had season tickets as a school board member. I was in the band, my sister was in the band. The thing was, the unifying civic activity was obsession over high school football.
Lori Lightfoot
Across the board, most NBA teams do not call back. You need a court order just to get a phone call back from these organizations. I’m not a part of their fraternity.
Robert Parish
During the decades after Brown v. Board of Education there was terrific progress. Tens of thousands of public schools were integrated racially. During that time the gap between black and white achievement narrowed.
Jonathan Kozol
I’ve never made a comment on a message board in my life.
M. Shadows
My role is not so much to lobby but be a sounding board for people. That’s a more effective place for me to be.
Bob Corker
The first movie I literally ever made in my life was about two guys playing Stratego with each other. I had all my friends dressing up like the military characters in the game. So ‘Battleship’ is really my second board game turned movie!
Peter Berg
A lot of times I’ll see guys who are nowhere near the level of the board they’re riding. They might love surfing and love how it looks, but you really have to work your way up. It takes eating a little humble pie at first, and stepping back to equipment that might be a bit slow, but do it.
Kelly Slater
Brown v. Board helped unite us all, and gave us all great pride knowing we all are truly E Pluribus Unum – one people out of many.
Mike Rogers
When I first left university, I thought about going into the private sector. But I discovered when I went to interview that I could only have a career in the back office, or doing HR. The attitude was, ‘My dear lady, you cannot possibly think about going on the board.’
Pauline Neville-Jones
When I was really young, Dad wasn’t that well known. I don’t remember when I realised he was a writer, but I do remember him leaving his full-time job at the Central Electrical Generating Board to concentrate on books.
Rhianna Pratchett
I’m a chairman on the Board of Governors for the East-West Players, the longest-running Asian-American theater company in America.
George Takei
Board meetings should not be for the benefit of the board. They should be for the benefit of the CEO and the senior team.
Fred Wilson
When you look at the best Nos. 6 and 7 in the world, they all average above 45, so gone are the days when you could get away with someone at 6 or 7 who’s below 40. You need to have those runs on the board.
Stuart Broad
The way that people have gotten on board with me is the most encouraging thing in the world, but it’s all very connected to the 14 years I’ve been on tour with Steel Train, even my band before that, Outline, and then fun. and now Bleachers.
Jack Antonoff
You know a good board when you see one.
Anne M. Mulcahy
Abby Johnson has agreed to become Chief Executive Officer of Fidelity, reflecting a further step forward in our leadership succession plan. Abby will retain her role of President, and I will continue to serve as Chairman of the Board.
Edward Johnson, III
The music that I’ve had out so far was obviously very pop, but when I signed with Hollywood Records, I was like, ‘I know that’s the music you’re familiar with, but that’s not what I want to sing. I want to do country.’ They were on board with it!
Lucy Hale
As a child, I used to spend nearly all my summer holidays with my aunt in Wales, and we used to catch mackerel in a boat and then cook them on board.
Mary Quant
If I am playing 18 ball, I aim to see how I can get my strike rate to 150-160. After 6-14 overs, you need to break down, that if you play half balls, then how much runs you need to get on the board.
Ajinkya Rahane
If terrorism is to be defeated, the world of Islam must take on board the secularist-humanist principles on which the modern is based, and without which Muslim countries’ freedom will remain a distant dream.
Salman Rushdie
I try to keep up with everything – all wrestling across the board. I want to know what the competition is doing, what the up-n-comers are doing.
Matt Hardy
My characters aren’t chess pieces. I don’t move them around some big board. I actually care about these fictitious people.
Jeff Nichols
It’s easy for the board to say, ‘Well, add makeover shows.’ The No. 1 show for women in the United States is ‘The Walking Dead.’ That’s not a makeover show.
Nancy Dubuc
I’ll usually stay up a little later than my wife and play Xbox, a little ‘Modern Warfare 3.’ Or I’ll have a friend over, and we’ll play board games until late at night. I’ll always choose fun over sleep.
Rich Sommer
I’d be very happy serving on a local school board. I just know that I have a responsibility to give back.
Andrew Zimmern
I do really well in the traditional board games: Backgammon, Checkers.
Chelsea Clinton
We all know that the NFL is the best of the best, and there’s great competition across the board, so any time you’re hurt or something like that, and another guy gets his opportunity, he’s going to try to make the most of it.
Brock Osweiler
Concerned consumers are realizing that they can use social media to organize themselves around shared values to start effective movements. Social media gives them a sounding board to share ideas, as well as a means to punish irresponsible corporate behaviors.
Simon Mainwaring
It’s a cliche, but Americans are puritanical. In their movies, they are scared of sex, but they overindulge in violence. I could have cut a G-rated version of ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien’ that would have pleased the American ratings board, but it would have been five minutes long.
Alfonso Cuaron
The best way I’ve learned to navigate pivotal moments in my career is by actively cultivating a personal board of directors. The most successful companies and nonprofits have strong boards to help guide them, so why not create our own? The needs are quite similar.
Margo Georgiadis
I think people forget that to be on the A list you first had to go through the original graded Parliamentary Selection Board. I did that and then like everyone else had the further interviews to get onto the A list.
Adam Rickitt
How pleasant it is for a father to sit at his child’s board. It is like an aged man reclining under the shadow of an oak which he has planted.
Walter Scott
After 2003, we lowered taxes across the board. And by 2004, revenue to the federal government grew. In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan cut taxes dramatically. And by the end of the decade, revenue coming in the federal government had doubled.
Pat Toomey
Anything that has to do with Disney and Pixar, I am on board with. That is where my heart and family are. So when they call, I jump.
Jodi Benson
We need education across the board on all fronts.
Matt Bevin
In college, my friends called me Mr. James Bond 007 because I entertained everything: blonds, brunettes, redheads. I’m across the board.
Paul Walker
I have an RSS reader, Feeddler. I mostly subscribe to board game blogs – they have reviews of new games and discussions about trends. It’s straight-up dork talk.
Rich Sommer
I’ve always been a big supporter of homeless charities across the board, ever since I first moved to London.
Giles Deacon
If I’m to be an ‘ist’ then, like Bobby Kennedy, I’m probably more of a free market capitalist than an environmentalist. Rather than wanting to tell people to be less bad, I’m saying let’s make it fair across the board and stop subsidizing the big heavy-polluting fat cats, let’s make it a level playing field.
Gord Downie
All my life I’ve been that way – ever since I was a kid. It doesn’t matter whether we played video games or even before that when we had board games when you played with your sister and mom and dad – I didn’t like losing then and didn’t want to do anything but win when we played.
Tony Stewart
A board constituted as the board of Sydney Hospital is constituted is not a suitable body to have control of an institute of medical research.
John Eccles
I can safely say that there are dozens of places on ‘Titania’ to watch a film with friends. I would estimate there’s something like 50 televisions on board, some of which are very big-screen, some of which drop out of ceilings on the outdoor decks.
John Caudwell
The materialisation of reforms in the form of rollout of the GST, the institution of Indian Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, and the abolition of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board should boost investor and investment confidence.
Urjit Patel
Web series are a way forward. It is a space where creative minds can express themselves without the fear of censor board.
Siddharth Shukla
There is nothing anyone can do anyway. The public has no power. The government knows I’m not a criminal. The parole board knows I’m not a criminal. The judge knows I’m not a criminal.
Jack Kevorkian
It was hard to find a board my size. I was tiny.
Shaun White
As CEO, I accept responsibility for the irregularities that have been found in diesel engines and have therefore requested the Supervisory Board to agree on terminating my function as CEO of the Volkswagen Group.
Martin Winterkorn
It defies common sense that stores are fined for selling toy guns to children, but someone who isn’t even allowed to board an airplane in this country can purchase as many real guns he wants with no questions asked.
Carolyn McCarthy
I look forward to working closely with the CDK Board, management team, and employees to enable CDK to meet its full potential to generate value for all of its stakeholders.
Brian Krzanich
I didn’t play or like a lot of board games as a child. I liked playing with my G.I. Joes and making up adventures for them.
Jonathan Ames
It may be true that the only reason the comic book industry now exists is for this purpose, to create characters for movies, board games and other types of merchandise.
Alan Moore
Lots of entrepreneurs don’t want to be hassled by a board of directors early on. The entrepreneurs want to control the company, don’t want to be responsible to a board, or don’t want to waste time communicating with board members. This is a classic error of thinking about the early stage board incorrectly.
Brad Feld
We used to have a crew of three on board the space station and even at one time a crew of two people, so it’s something we can adjust to.
Scott Kelly
I maybe need a break, because I feel like I’ve done every iteration of it, and that’s what’s been great, you know – ‘Mr. Brooks’ is so different from ‘Friday the 13th,’ which is so different from ‘The Crazies,’ which is different from ‘Piranha.’ So, I feel like I’ve kind of covered it across the board.
Danielle Panabaker
If Martin Scorsese calls, I am available. And then there the ones, well, you can just run down the list – any of those Oscar-nominated films, they have amazing directors across the board.
Timothy Olyphant
My ideal beach house has bookshelves full of paperbacks that can tolerate a little sand, a DVD library that includes some Disney classics for the little ones, board games, and jigsaw puzzles. At least one big flatscreen television is a must.
Mary Kay Andrews
I could have gone on to be an engineer full time, except that there was more demand for my playing. But the love of working the board never leaves you.
Steve Cropper
In the ideal scenario, consultants work for a board, and they’re helping the board check on certain aspects of management. Their work is made public and transparent.
Matthew Stewart
A lot of people have said ‘people should see you work in the studio,’ because a lot of people don’t realize I’m an actual engineer. I don’t walk in and have some guy grab the board. I have my own studio and soldered every wire in the studio.
Sir Mix-a-Lot
Every week Rangers have different former players come out at half-time. Spurs should have a couple a former players on the board, who know what the supporters want.
Graham Roberts
Instead of fostering the kind of dialogue in the boardroom that has in part contributed to our success, the board has inappropriately chosen to silence my concerns through termination as an executive officer.
George Zimmer
When I entered normal school, it was hard for me to adjust sometimes. I was so unused to just sitting down in a classroom and copying off the board – simple things.
Alex Sharp
It’s not just about casting female protagonists. It’s gotta be across the board throughout the industry.
Kathleen Kennedy
This high official, all allow, is grossly overpaid; there wasn’t any Board, and now there isn’t any Trade.
A. P. Herbert
The Gottman Institute’s study about arguments in long-term relationships concludes that couples with the best chance at long-term success are the ones with a low negativity threshold: if something’s wrong, they speak up about it immediately. That’s something I’ve taken on board.
Hannah Fry
I think ‘Settlers of Catan’ is such a well-designed board game – it’s the board game of entrepreneurship – that I made a knockoff called ‘Startups of Silicon Valley.’ It’s literally – it’s the same rules but just a different skin set to it.
Reid Hoffman
Dealing with Jazz at Lincoln Center and its board of directors, who are so great, and then seeing how these Rock Hall guys operate, it’s like: ‘Really?’ It seems like they’re total amateurs when it comes to doing shows and contracts.
Steve Miller
My transactions are above board: I do not have money deposited in other accounts and have transparently declared all assets. My real wealth is, however, my experience as cofounder of Infosys and as Aadhar Chairman, which gave away 60,000 crore identity cards to people of India as promised.
Nandan Nilekani
When my record company rejected ‘Full Moon Fever’, I was hurt so bad. I was pretty far along in my career at that point. I’d never had anything rejected; I’d never really even had a comment. So when that happened, it was really just a board to the forehead. But then, finally, I picked myself up.
Tom Petty
I was that kid that did dance, singing, pageants. I did everything pretty much across the board, so it was kind of an adjustment solely doing music.
Normani Kordei
When the value of the company clearly has fallen below what its assets are worth, having a shareholder who says, ‘Let’s get a better board’ can be helpful.
Ben Horowitz
Jamal Adams has got The Jet Way. Everybody needs to get on board with that kid and follow him, even if it means more than the coach.
Rex Ryan
In many ways, our marriage is anything but traditional. When I started my blog in 2006, Ladd was the only one that really understood what I was doing, probably before I even understood what I was doing. He wasn’t tech-savvy, but he just got it and was totally on board with it.
Ree Drummond
The Orthodox hierarchy doesn’t have the kind of power that high-ranking clergy do in other churches. There isn’t even a worldwide governing board to hold all the various Orthodox bodies together.
Frederica Mathewes-Green
When I was elected for the first time in ’06 I’d never been elected to any body. City councils, school board, community college boards, trustee, water district trustee, class president, ASB president, senior class president – nothing. I was never elected to anything in my life.
Kevin de Leon
I was the first in my family to board an airplane. I was the first in my family to get kicked off an airplane.
Trevor Noah
Before I went to Juventus, I made a final promise to the board at Barcelona. I said, ‘You’re going to miss me.’ I didn’t mean as a player. Barca have plenty of incredible players. What I meant was that they were going to miss my spirit.
Dani Alves
I love business and that’s why I go on other people’s board because it is my hobby. Some people join a tennis club to do things in their spare time. I join boards because that’s what I love.
Karren Brady
Occupy has to continue as a bold, in-your-face movement – occupying banks, corporate headquarters, board meetings, campuses and Wall Street itself. We need weekly – if not daily – nonviolent assaults right on Wall Street.
Michael Moore
We invited HP executives to participate in the management and in the board. HCL had this concept of corporate officers since inception in 1999. We had a remuneration committee. Now everyone is talking about nomination and remuneration committee. We had this from 1999.
Shiv Nadar
One of our books has been made into a musical, ‘The Great American Mousical,’ which I directed at the Goodspeed Opera House in Connecticut. And another, ‘Simeon’s Gift,’ has been adapted for a symphony orchestra and five performers. I’m also a very proud member of the board of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Julie Andrews
Everything I have done in the private sector has been through an ethics review point by point by point, and I have been given a clean bill of health by Ethics from the day I walked in the door, including my involvement with Innate Immunotherapeutics and my position on the board.
Chris Collins
The fact is that the College Board’s products – the SAT, other standardized tests, the accompanying strategy guides – are sold at far higher than the cost to make them.
Eliot Schrefer
Dos Anjos, his wrestling and grappling is supposed to be good, but I feel my Jiu Jitsu, wrestling and striking is way better. I’m better than him all across the board.
Donald Cerrone
It’s the board I had a problem with. I could totally handle being in the water and stuff. I came here to do my own stunts. Water! Ocean! Action! Big waves! That water, that water has tamed me. You can feel that the world is connected to it.
Michelle Rodriguez
I don’t story board. I do something else, which is, I block it. We then train to the blocking. In other words, when everybody’s training, they’re actually training a lot of the moves that we are definitely going to use, and then, I do a lot of photography of that, and that becomes where the cameras go.
Michael Mann
Eventually I ran for the board of the WTA, lost my first attempt, got on the board my second attempt, and stayed there through most of my career.
Pam Shriver
The intensity of the story breaking on ‘Vampire’ has never been easy. Every week, you’re starting with a blank board and trying to make a new movie. There’s no formula; there’s no franchise to hang your hat on.
Julie Plec
As board members, we only meet infrequently and are not as engaged with the front line, necessarily. The first thing I did as CEO was I left this board room.
Oscar Munoz
In our case, one of my earliest experiences working in the company was being asked to be on Ted Turner’s board, and I saw that the value creation from owning networks was stunning – new channels, international opportunities, synergy, many things that Turner Broadcasting built for decades.
Brian L. Roberts
I choose my work based on what is offered to me. If I see if my role can change the way the show will shape up, I come on board. If me being there in a show will make no difference, then I won’t bother being part of it. I am inclined to do things that I haven’t done before.
Rithvik Dhanjani
It’s very important to get friends on board, friends who make a difference.
Yo Yo Honey Singh
I probably have a small number of people that are consistently advisors and mentors, but I’m much more likely to have a broader array of… almost like an unofficial board of advisors, where I know that certain people are going to be good for certain types of topics.
Kathryn Minshew
When I wear the hat of management, it is important that our management behaves and conducts as management accountable to the board.
Uday Kotak
When I’m on the field, I’m locked in, focused on my job. I try to have a positive play and try to get points on the board.
Deshaun Watson
Now, if most Americans want to go out and buy a car, they don’t say, you know, ‘I think I’ll call the chairman of the board of Ford Motor Company and see what kind of deal we can make here.’
Jeb Hensarling
Growing up, I looked up to major league baseball players, and now these young women have amazing, incredible women all across the board, from swimming to gymnastics to softball to basketball. It is incredible how far women have come and women in sports have come.
Jennie Finch
When I was 28, running products for a company I’d co-founded, the CEO called to say that I had a problem with the board, that I probably couldn’t overcome it, that I’d have to leave the company.
Glenn Kelman
I was, as president and chairman of the board, required by law to verify the veracity of the financial figures, the assets under management, the number of outstanding shares, et cetera.
Matt Bevin
Our mission at Khan Academy is a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere, and college readiness is a crucial part of that. We want to help as many students as possible prepare for college and for life, and since the SAT measures preparedness for college, our partnership with the College Board is a natural fit.
Sal Khan
On the aircraft carrier under my command, where the average age of sailors was 19 and a half, you could see accountability in action at all times. You especially saw it when an order was given that a plane about to launch suddenly must be switched out for another and kept on board.
Joe Sestak
There was a board game called ‘Sorcery,’ which is one of my favorites, and I would often revisit the game. It’s not a video game, but it definitely stands out in my mind as a game that impacted me.
Hidetaka Miyazaki
My executive board, my management, my friends, are so ethnically diverse.
Machine Gun Kelly
Across the board, people are looking at the problem, but simply not changing anywhere near fast enough.
Trevor Phillips
I love Logic Audio and have been using it for years. All my track outputs used to come up on my old board in the same order as in the old Mac G4 – 1 through 32, came up as 1 through 32, for instance.
Tony Visconti
You can’t build a strong corporation with a lot of committees and a board that has to be consulted every turn. You have to be able to make decisions on your own.
Rupert Murdoch
I’m usually out there grinding. You see a birdie go up on the board, and you’re not thinking about how it affects the tournament because you’re playing.
Brooks Koepka
It’s really important for cycling and for women to be on a sporting stage which is in the mainstream and across the board, not just my own sport.
Lizzie Armitstead
We ought to open up energy innovation across the board and – and remove the barriers to every form of energy.
Ted Cruz
Firing insults anonymously behind the keys of a message board, slandering other people’s beliefs or opinions, this happens on a daily basis in my comment section or on my feed. Cyber-bullying and, further, online social ignorance, is a very real problem, typically without any real consequence.
Ryan McCartan
A whole range of things are done to ensure services remain safe and sustainable because that is the absolute paramount duty of the health board.
Nicola Sturgeon
I know that some books and some writers, you can pretty much draw a square around it and say, ‘Nobody under 40,’ or ‘Nobody under 25.’ With my books, it always has been, and continues to be, spread right across the board, and I think the operative term is ‘reader.’
Margaret Atwood
When we look at really good high-performing companies abroad, they are always at the back of an extremely high-performing board, and that is something which is very lacking in this country.
Roshni Nadar
I personally think skateboarding is harder because it has so many moving parts. With snowboarding, your feet are strapped to your board.
Shaun White
Would-be terrorists cannot so much as board a plane without a thorough screening, yet we give them nearly unfettered access to very dangerous weapons.
George Takei
I have been blessed, working both at the local level on a community school board, the state assembly, four years in the state senate, and now almost 12 years in the House of Representatives.
Phil Gingrey
Kook means the clueless beginner who paddles his surf board out to the other surfers in the lineup and starts chattering away like it’s a cocktail party, completely ignores all the finely-tuned protocols of surf that have developed over decades.
Peter Heller
All my life, I’ve been the rebel in the X-wing fighter, and then one morning, I woke up, and I was on board the Death Star.
Bobby Kotick
We need to accept that the commandments of God aren’t just a long list of good ideas. They aren’t ‘life hacks’ from an Internet blog or motivational quotes from a Pinterest board.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
It’s a film called ‘Kursk’, which is a true story about a submarine disaster. There was an accident on board a Russian submarine in the year 2000, and it stranded a large number of sailors. That’s next.
Colin Firth
I find that when you lead with vision and values, engaging employees and showing them that values are just as important as profits, everyone comes on board. And not only do they come on board, but they connect to their own individual creativity.
Shari Arison
Even if the technology advances, I don’t expect we will be allowed to sail around with 400-meter long container ships weighing 200,000 tonnes without any human beings on board. I don’t think it will be a driver of efficiency – not in my time.
Soren Skou
I’m in a different position than most CEO’s. I’m a founder. I’m not a hired CEO. Now, I can be fired by the board, but most CEO’s are hired by the board.
Howard Schultz
I’m on the Facebook board now. Little did they know that I thought Facebook was really stupid when I first heard about it back in 2005.
Reed Hastings
Violence against the other, and the way we otherize people out of fear, has to be examined across the board.
Yance Ford
We’ve got to look at waste, fraud, and abuse across the board.
Chuck Fleischmann
Three times a year, there’s Strategicon convention, and I go for the board games. It happens Presidents Day, Labor Day, and Memorial Day weekends. You go and take a look at the new board games and meet a couple of board game designers, and you can check out games you don’t own from the library and then return them.
Rich Sommer
We really find that most houses we look at – that are really rough around the edges – most of those are actually diamonds in the rough. They could be beautiful, and it just takes a little creativity and having the right people on board.
Jonathan Scott
Tax reform for the 21st century means rewarding hardworking families by closing unfair loopholes, lowering tax rates across the board, and simplifying the tax code dramatically. It demands reducing the tax burden on American businesses of all sizes so they can keep more of their income to invest in our communities.
Kevin Brady
When he was twenty-three or twenty-four my father began to learn German and read philosophy in his spare hours, which did not look as though he were destined to remain long on board ship!
Edward Carpenter
After 9/11, new security measures not only added longer lines and earlier check-ins, but took away our privilege of carrying knitting needles or our favorite moisturizer on board with us. Although we want to be safe when we fly, in some ways it all just adds to the misery of our experience.
Ann Hood
When I was in college, I lost my scholarship one year. I had enough money for tuition, but not room and board. So I camped in the hills.
Robert Hass
In the White House, you can be on the pitcher’s mound or you can be in the catcher’s position. Put points on the board. Show people you can govern. Deliver on what you said you were going to deliver on.
Rahm Emanuel
I am a board member and the volunteer director of medical and scientific content for Less Cancer.
Margaret Cuomo
We’ve got a yawl named the Phebe, which is named for a boat in a whaling journal my father and I edited. We keep a copy of the journal on board.
Nathaniel Philbrick
I am a movie fan across the board, though, so if a movie is well done then I love it and it does not really matter what the genre is.
Tania Raymonde
I don’t care if you’re from the right or left of politics – there are core objectives we can all agree on: equal pay, equal representation on the media, equal representation at board level, politics, an end to domestic violence.
Sandi Toksvig
As a former nine-year member of the Board of Supervisors and nine-year mayor, I know firsthand the merits of strong zoning laws. They protect residential areas so they can support families and be free of commercial activities that are not related to neighborhood needs.
Dianne Feinstein
Being on a board is not just about showing up for the meetings. A board member needs to materially contribute to the success of the business.
Scott Weiss
At home, I tend to read print, and most of the time, that means recently released hardcover novels. I enjoy the feel of paper and board; I like turning pages, dog-earing my spot, jotting notes in the back.
Chris Pavone
That text-books be permitted in Catholic schools such as will not offend the religious views of the minority, and which from an educational standpoint shall be satisfactory to the advisory board.
Charles Tupper
Every manager feels a responsibility to his board of directors and the public and the players.
Frank Rijkaard
The ride to orbit was impressive, as it always is. But once I got on board the space station, it really felt like I was visiting an old home; it felt very comfortable.
Scott Kelly
I quit ‘Splash!’ because I couldn’t dive off a 3 m. board.
Kendra Wilkinson
PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) is doing an unbelievable job in trying to resurrect international cricket. I just hope the World XI tour goes ahead and that will almost be the curtain raiser to, hopefully, get some international cricket back.
Mickey Arthur
Often, I grow irritated before the first tile has been placed on the Scrabble board. This generally occurs when one of my opponents has insisted upon bringing a dictionary to the table, making it clear that he will be consulting it throughout the game.
Craig Brown
Because most startups are lean and scrappy organizations consisting of a limited number of people and supported by an even smaller number of resources, startups cannot afford to have any slackers on board. When you fail, you cause an ‘epic failure,’ and when you win, everyone in the company knows about it.
Clay Clark
‘Black film,’ unless it’s lucky enough or creative enough, or timely enough to build a life of its own, hangs subjacent to ‘white film’ on Hollywood’s financial score board… aided and abetted by the supposition that so-called black film has no foreign market.
Joe Morton
My dad got me a huge board when I was little. He loves to surf. He suited me up and sent me out on this huge wave. I went under, and when I came out and the board hit me in the face. So I said, I never wanted to do this again. I stayed away until I was 13.
Shaun White
The reality is that religion, across the board, and in and of itself, neither provokes war nor promotes peace – and it is childish and naive, not to mention utopian, to believe otherwise.
Mehdi Hasan
I don’t have the runs on the board to trash talk anyone in the boxing sense. I’ve got to do it the hard way and earn that respect.
Sonny Bill Williams
I never feel like I’ve been pushed towards a certain thing, but now, at 26, I do feel like I have integrity over my output, you know? There’s a fine line between saying, ‘You can’t tell me what I can and can’t do,’ and taking on board people’s opinions.
Cassie Ventura
I was on the San Diego school board for 4 years, where I watched children successfully matriculate into elementary schools from Head Start programs from all around our city.
Bob Filner
The reason I actually ran for office is because of Hillary Clinton. Everybody was telling me why I shouldn’t run: I was too young, I had small children, I should start at the school board level.
Nikki Haley
When I grew up in Cincinnati in 1974, the Board of Education set up the performing school, similar to the New York performing arts school, and it was in walking distance from my school.
Rocky Carroll
Creating the right advisory board for your startup can be the single most important step you take in building a new business.
Jay Samit
I tend to watch the score board a lot.
Jason Day
And we invested three hundred thousand dollars, became the lead investor and I became Chairman of the Board of Scientific Data Systems, as I was at Intel for a while.
Arthur Rock
We humans have always looked to the sky as a sounding board for asking big questions about ourselves: Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going?
Trevor Paglen
Our economic model allows us to invest a disproportionate amount in our food costs. We have a very efficient system: customers go through a single line, the people who serve you are the ones who make the food, and our menu board is not cluttered.
Steve Ells
I’m still focused on the flagship businesses: Quicken Loans and RockBridge, the title company, and some of the board stuff in the gaming.
Dan Gilbert
Two studies from the year 2000, however, indicate that Catholics give lower ratings to their clergy’s ministerial activities across the board than do Protestants.
Andrew Greeley
I read upon the subject and grew more and more interested, and after a time I became a member of the National Board, and had duties and responsibilities that kept me busy after my day’s work was done.
Rose Schneiderman
The election of Trump threw the chess board up. The pieces are all over the place. That’s upsetting to a lot of people, but what I think is there’s a lot of fertile ground for good ideas.
Dave Rubin
I started to get very well recognized in the early seventies as the only man in the United States who had been elected three times to the board of NOW in New York City.
Warren Farrell
I am honored to serve on the Board of Visitors for Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. Being the first board member from Latin America, I hope to provide insight into the economical, social and political issues facing the region, and continue to grow and strengthen this prestigious institution.
Ricardo Salinas Pliego
When I taught a civil rights class at the University of Maryland Law School, I would do an exercise with my students. I’d write ‘civil rights’ on the board and ask them to tell me what immediately came to mind.
Tom Perez
If I’m on the board of any company where there’s an offer that comes in, I want to negotiate.
Nelson Peltz
I am fully on board with the Wellness Policy. Even after being suspended by it, I’m fully on board with it. I think it’s really keeping people healthy in general.
I take mentoring very seriously and I am on the board of an organization called Girls Write Now, where we match teen girls and writing mentors because it changes their lives.
Tayari Jones
The New York Times editorial page is like a Ouija board that has only three answers, no matter what the question. The answers are: higher taxes, more restrictions on political speech and stricter gun control.
Ann Coulter
I don’t like leaving work behind. I hate the idea that something might be happening on the drawing board at home that I am going to miss.
Quentin Blake
Our next-door neighbour taught physics at Hampton University. Our church abounded with mathematicians. Supersonics experts held leadership positions in my mother’s sorority, and electrical engineers sat on the board of my parents’ college alumni associations.
Margot Lee Shetterly
Listen, it’s not just ‘Full House.’ It’s across the board in the entertainment industry: women are not paid what men are paid.
Lori Loughlin
We had rising student achievement across the board because high standards, robust accountability, ending social promotion in third grade, real school choice across the board, challenging the teachers union and beating them is the way to go.
Jeb Bush
In many cases, women are being harassed by people who are on their board or who are associated with one of their venture capitalists.
Jennifer Hyman
Everyone must know by now that the aim of Scrabble is to gain the moral high ground, the loser being the first player to slam the board shut and upset all the letters over the floor.
Craig Brown
You can’t expect to go about change – especially change of this nature, when you talk about racial equality and justice – you can’t expect to go about or engage in that without resistance, and so you’re going to have some people who aren’t on board.
Malcolm Jenkins
I feel like I’m part of history being made. I leave Apple board meetings thinking, ‘I’ve got to do a better job.’
Andrea Jung
I ran spotlight. Swept up. Did box office. Ran the lighting board. But acting was the most fun.
Tim Robbins
When I was about 19, I shot a tape of me doing magic just to people on the streets, and I would edit together all the reactions and I kept pushing this idea, and then ABC came on board and made my first show.
David Blaine
I always do very detailed demos. I feel that it’s better to show the director a demo that sounds as close to the final thing as possible with samples. It takes time to create, but I feel that it’s better to get the director on board very early on in terms of the sounds that I have in my head.
Johann Johannsson
I was desperate to leave Hamburg. The club was awesome, don’t get me wrong, but I had a personal issue with one of the board members. He was desperate to get me out. The first club came calling, and it was Man City.
Vincent Kompany
It’s often discouraging sitting working at home, wondering whether to put the heating on, answering the doorbell to the gas board, feeling it’s all utterly pointless.
Rachel Johnson
What you do by having an income tax rate reduction across the board, you really provide great incentives for people to work, produce, and increase output. So I would support a carbon tax in replacement for a progressive income tax.
Arthur Laffer
You sit at the board and suddenly your heart leaps. Your hand trembles to pick up the piece and move it. But what chess teaches you is that you must sit there calmly and think about whether it’s really a good idea and whether there are other, better ideas.
Stanley Kubrick
The ship of democracy, which has weathered all storms, may sink through the mutiny of those on board.
Grover Cleveland
Ideally, I’d love to write poems that intrigued humans across the board: literary folk and academics as well as… dog-walkers, doctors, plumbers, chefs, math professors, jugglers, etc.
Amy Gerstler
I think reviewers are sexist… This isn’t to sound bitter, but I think you’re more likely to get a critical kicking if you’re a woman. I just think that’s a fact. I really think less value is put in general on women’s voices, across the board.
Marian Keyes
I came from a religious, homeschooled background; I had conventional views across the board.
Ben Domenech
I really have to give the Navy all the credit it deserves. They were so flexible and accommodating, given that everybody on board had better things to worry about than this person coming on board who’s just going to be in the way, really.
Geoff Dyer
I vertically center things in tables a lot, and the fact that there is no way to control vertical positioning in divs affects the way we do things across the board.
Mike Davidson
That first responsibility as a school board member – meals for latch-key children – was absolutely critical in my understanding of the extraordinary problems of poverty.
Richard Lugar
Wherever I go, the club is never to stay on the same square on the board: they have to move up. I don’t know if it’s coincidence, some calling, or destiny – but whatever it is, it’s the story of my life.
Claudio Ranieri
You go to the draft board and think, ‘Here’s a nose tackle. Who needs a nose tackle?’ Well, eight teams in front of you need a nose tackle, and there’s two nose tackles. It’s something you have to figure out where you can get the players to play in your system.
Bill Belichick
Sure, I like to win when I play basketball or board games or video games, but my day isn’t ruined if I lose. I’m always up for a rematch. In all seriousness, that’s something that’s nice about maturing.
Aaron Staton
I am for 100% equality across the board for everybody, in all walks of life.
David Furnish
Jeezy just recognized my grind, and I jumped on board with him to enhance it. Artistically, we’re in the same mind frame. We come from very similar backgrounds – poverty. That’s something that we can both relate to, something that we can convey in our music.
Freddie Gibbs
I think I’m always willing to learn and listen to the coaches and the manager and listen to the advice of the players in the team as well, so whenever I get the advice, I try to take it on board and just try to help myself get better.
Trent Alexander-Arnold
The emphasis so far on fiscal austerity, while to a degree necessary for the countries facing market funding difficulties, is excessive when carried out across the board.
Charles Dallara
I was offered my first film right after my 10th board exams. Back then, I didn’t even know they made films in the South. Films, I thought, were either in Hindi or English.
Of course you bank on your experience, but as a sounding board. It isn’t that you write down what happens to you every day. You wouldn’t be a writer if you did that.
Philip Roth
Making a movie in Hollywood is a bit like playing a board game, where you have to throw a six to start.
Nigel Cole
I wasn’t that over-the-top, but I got sent to the principal in first grade for talking. And my father was for a long time the president of the Board of Education. That was always a hard note to bring home.
Barbara Park
I joined the board of Etsy when it was just three founders, and I helped recruit the COO and CTO, Chad Dickerson, who later became the CEO.
Caterina Fake
One of the things that the court held in Brown v. Board of Education is that government can’t impose a badge of inferiority on some of its citizens. Yet that is exactly what Proposition 8 does with respect to gay and lesbian couples in California.
David Boies
There’s nobody telling Oprah what to do. There’s no one telling David Letterman what he can and can’t do. You’ve got to have 100 percent support from everybody who’s behind the show, across the board.
Vicki Lawrence
The first time I almost died was surfing: I got hit on the head with a board. I went under and started swimming until I hit the bottom of the ocean. I thought, ‘Oh my God, I’m going the wrong way. Do I have enough air to get back up?’ If you’re a surfer, you know the feeling.
Robert David Hall
We all think there is a formula, (but) as long as we love our children, that’s really the only solid thing I know that works across the board.
Jada Pinkett Smith
Quite frankly, I am not very comfortable in chitchat. When I go to board meetings, I arrive two minutes before and leave when it’s over. I don’t stay for lunch or go early and have coffee.
Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.
The College Board is officially a non-profit. But all that means is that it doesn’t have shareholders and that their financial accountings must be available to the public; it certainly doesn’t mean that they’re not also into making money.
Eliot Schrefer
Brown versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem.
Bill Cosby
