I felt like the script [of “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore”] was so clear. It was sort of packed full of information. [Macon Blair] puts in a lot of discussion in the script.

It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.

Wayne Thiebaud
Originally when we talked about language disorder it was a catastrophic language disorder.

Darold Treffert

Ian Somerhalder
TLC has helped me to know that as a musician, I can talk about anything; that there are no barriers, and that you can be yourself. That’s what I love about them. Left Eye in particular helped me to stay on top of my A game. She’s one of the best female MCs that I’ve heard.
Lil’ Mama

Hannah Arendt
I believe passionately that everyone has a particular God-given ability.

Pope John Paul II
What is a face, really? Its own photo? Its make-up? Or is it a face as painted by such or such painter? That which is in front? Inside? Behind? And the rest? Doesn’t everyone look at himself in his own particular way? Deformations simply do not exist.
Pablo Picasso
I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
Tom Glavine

Wilhelm Ostwald
I’m not someone who feels anger on particular issues.
Theresa May

James Allen
There was no one in particular I really tried to copy.
Caroline Corr
My boy and I move. We have this game where if we dress in a particular item of clothing, we have to do a different movement. A hat means 20 jumps – that sort of thing. When I put a scarf on, my son has to drop down and do push-ups, immediately. He thinks it’s really funny.
Magnus Scheving
For the success,
Although particular, shall give a scantling

The baby figure of the giant mass
Of things to come at large.

Ove Arup

Oscar de la Renta
Brendan O’Meara’s Six Weeks in Saratoga is a victory to be savored by those who treasure good writing in general and tales of the track in particular. Horses may win races, but they also win hearts as this impressive book proves beyond doubt. A memorable, sure-footed debut.
Madeleine Blais
I don’t have a particular recommendation other than that we base decisions on as much hard data as possible. We need to carefully look at all the options and all their ramifications in making our decisions.
Dorothy E. Denning
Sometimes something intrigues me about particular sounds, how they work together, and I think “Okay, I’ve found something here; I’m going to take it somewhere.” And sometimes just to find a name for that sound, whatever it is, ends up becoming a title of the piece or becoming part of the title.
Brian Eno
As an actor I think sometimes producers need a little bit of encouragement to see you in a particular role, they may not have as much imagination as you would expect.
Steve Kanaly
When we have any function, whether it’s language or vision or cognitive functions like memory, we aren’t dealing with a straight line to the brain that says ‘This is what I do.’ The brain builds a network of connections, a network of neurons that have a particular role in that function.
Maryanne Wolf
A great artist can really enter the logic of any particular mazurka and fully understand the language of Chopin’s music.
Rafal Blechacz
And again, the political economy in that particular environment means that, if my attraction ever coheres as a thought at all, it’s never going to be verbalized, because that will mess up the education environment, it will mess up everything. You cannot claim to be doing good if you’re moving in that direction.
Anne Elizabeth Moore
If you know Christ, you don’t need to beg for the Holy Spirit to come into your life; He is already there- whether you “feel” His presence or not. Don’t confuse the Holy Spirit with an emotional feeling or a particular type of spiritual experience.
Billy Graham
I am interested in telling my particular truth as I have seen it.
Gwendolyn Brooks

Virgil Abloh
The film [Close Up] made itself, to a large extent. The characters involved were very real, I wasn’t directing the actors so much as being directed by them. So it was a very particular film.

David Wojnarowicz
In heaven an angel is nobody in particular.
George Bernard Shaw
I think there’s something very lovely and hilarious about exploring the particular neuroses of the female mind. It’s just not the same thing with men. I mean, there are exceptions, but for the most part, women beat themselves up in their heads more. They overanalyze stuff far more than men do.
Lizzy Caplan
I am the consequence of a particular type of demographic movement, one that has always involved paying a high price. But I don’t know much about styles or genres. I only know notes and chords.
Concha Buika

James Nares
The first degree of proficiency is, in painting, what grammar is in literature, a general preparation for whatever the student may afterward choose for more particular application. The power of drawing, modeling, and using colors, is very properly called the language of the art.
Joshua Reynolds
I think anytime we talk about transforming in capitalist society, we are talking about a process not a particular event so you can’t talk about a socialist revolution.
Cornel West
TV evangelists say they don’t favor any particular
denomination, but I think we’ve all seen their eyes
light up at tens and twenties.
Dennis Miller
The natural distribution is neither just nor unjust; nor is it unjust that persons are born into society at some particular position. These are simply natural facts. What is just and unjust is the way that institutions deal with these facts.
John Rawls
Talking about covers, whether visually or sonically, if a particular combination of notes struck a chord in your heart in a way that you want to be a part of it by covering that song, then there’s nothing wrong with it.
Ville Valo

Jeb Bush
If you are a friend of the Constitution as I am, I hope you will consider engaging me in the topics of my posts whether you agree or disagree with my position on a particular subject.
John Jay Hooker
Along this particular stretch of line no express had ever passed. All the trains–the few that there were–stopped at all the stations. Denis knew the names of those stations by heart. Bole, Tritton, Spavin Delawarr, Knipswich for Timpany, West Bowlby, and, finally, Camlet-on-the-Water.
Aldous Huxley
In your own life, you should take particular care with endings, for their color will forever tinge your memory of the entire relationship and your willingness to reenter it.
Martin Seligman
I love ‘Troy.’ I love Brad Pitt’s character – when he went to Troy, he just ran over it. Then this particular scene where they made this big old horse or something out of wood, and they hid inside the wood.
I don’t paint so that people will understand me, I paint to show what a particular scene looks like.
J. M. W. Turner
Scientists, especially when they leave the particular field in which they are specialized, are just as ordinary, pig-headed, and unreasonable as everybody else, and their unusually high intelligence only makes their prejudices all the more dangerous.
Hans Eysenck
I don’t have any particular beef with Barbara Boxer. My beef is with the official Democratic doctrine that anybody who reaches Boxer’s position has to spout and has to endorse.
Mickey Kaus
Martin in particular concluded that man was born to live either in the convulsions of misery, or in the lethargy of boredom.
Become an internationalist and learn to respect all life. Make war on machines. And in particular the sterile machines of corporate death and the robots that guard them.
Abbie Hoffman
The number of individuals employed under the Constitution of the United States will be much smaller than the number employed under the particular States.
James Madison

Molly Crabapple
I’m more concerned about the salvation of souls than I am in promoting a particular party.
Bill Bright
The subordinate’s job is not to reform or reeducate the boss, not to make him conform to what the business schools or the management book say bosses should be like. It is to enable a particular boss to perform as a unique individual.
Peter Drucker
I don’t have a particular style I like, it just changes daily, depending on the mood or the situation. I don’t have a style chosen.
If you have a problem and you can’t find a solution, you meet again tomorrow and you keep talking until you find a solution. You can disagree with behavior or a particular position, but you do not resort to calling an opponent worthless.
Kofi Annan
The Party, as such, stands for positive Christianity, but does not bind itself in the matter of creed to any particular confession.
Adolf Hitler
There are two types of collector, I think. There are those who are quite academic, and get into the archaeology of finding the earliest example of a particular idea. Then there are those interested in what’s new.
Adam Clayton
Check out not to become a man or woman of achievement, but instead seek to become a particular person of price.
Albert Einstein
That’s what governors do, they wrestle with the issues, they find solutions and they move the agenda forward. At the appropriate time we’ll talk about all of these issues, while remembering that our party is a big tent party. We lose when we try to become exclusive to one particular set of issues.
Jon Huntsman, Jr.
I thank Henry James for the scene in the hotel room, that I stole from Portrait Of A Lady… This particular scene is the most beautiful scene ever written.

Phyllis Schlafly
In abstract mathematics, of course operations alter those particular relations which are involved in the considerations of number and space, and the results of operations are those peculiar results which correspond to the nature of the subjects of operation.
Ada Lovelace
Meliorn looked impassive. “Mundane humans are not permitted in the Court.” “I wish someone had mentioned that earlier,” said Simon, to no one in particular. “I take it I’m just supposed to wait out here until vines start growing on me?” Meliorn considered. “That might offer significant amusement.
Cassandra Clare
When you’re looking around for metaphor or simile, I do think it’s often helpful to keep inside the world of the book, to gather your comparisons from the stuff particular to that world – be they king salmon and aviation fuel, or pot roasts and spatulas.
Leigh Newman
I don’t dictate particular styles of dress. I do teach classes in self discovery.
Frederick Lenz
I don’t expect everyone to get something deep out of it. Some people can just listen to the music, or get their aggressions out, but I think with any great painting or movie, album or whatever it is, it’s better if people can take what they need from it. That they’re not forced to get some particular message.
Marilyn Manson
One danger, when you’re writing lots of quick, opinionated blog items about the latest developments, is that you never get around to stating fully, in one place, what you think about a particular topic.
Mickey Kaus
To defeat terrorism, we must acknowledge that we are all human beings. It is not our choice to belong to a particular race or family.

Fethullah Gulen
I personally believe it’s really important for the students to experience a particular culture.
Robert J. Dolan
Human beings have an almost unlimited capacity for self-delusion. We can justify any amount of sadness if it fits our own particular standard of reality.
John Twelve Hawks

Ross Honsberger
Generally, older people in their fifties, sixties, and seventies are running most countries and are CEOs of corporations. Which isn’t to say there aren’t entrepreneurs, but if the young were better in every respect, there’d be no reason for the old. Our life span reflects our particular life strategy.
Cynthia Kenyon
Nations don’t start out. There is not a particular moment when they unveil the essence of themselves. They are always a work in progress.

Cassandra Clare

Erwin Rommel
I think people often underestimate the power of consumers. But I equally say that consumers are like shock troops: You can’t keep them agitated and motivated and committed and active forever. There are pulses where they switch on to a particular issue, and just inevitably they switch off.
John Elkington
The practical effect of a belief is the real test of its soundness. Where we find a heroic life appearing as the uniform fruit of a particular mode of opinion, it is childish to argue in the face of fact that the result ought to have been different.
James Anthony Froude
The masses are brainwashed to the point that they believe if an American grocery store or restaurant offers a particular food, it must be good and safe.

Clint Eastwood
Agitators, organizers, activists, intellectuals aren’t bound by those rules. We’re not trying to figure out, how do I thread this particular needle?
Bill Ayers
Getting inside the mind of a terrorist wasn’t difficult at all. Even as children, human beings fabricate elaborate revenge fantasies. We’re not a particular species. Check out popular video games.
Alan Dean Foster
All acts suppose certain dispositions, and habits of mind and heart, which may be in themselves states of enjoyment or of wretchedness, and which must be fruitful in other consequences besides those particular acts.
John Stuart Mill
Let us seek in particular to communicate the deepest joy, that of knowing God in Christ.
Pope Benedict XVI
When you do the right thing, but not to any particular person, we instinctively feel that we have earned some sort of pay back. Since no-one will do that for us, we opt for self-service reciprocation.
Julian Baggini
Jekyll and Hyde, in particular, is such an important novel in terms of suspense and setting a perfect scene for crime
Alanna Knight
[ Being director] is really reassuring to me that it’s just about who is right for that role and less about if you ace the audition. It’s just about getting to know people, not about who’s a better actor a lot of the time. It’s about who fits that particular suit, you know?
Alden Ehrenreich
Thinking doesn’t seem to help very much. The human brain is too high-powered to have many practical uses in this particular universe.
Kurt Vonnegut
After 40, your chances of getting pregnant are between two and eight percent, and in my particular case, they were less than five percent.
Aisha Tyler
I don’t start a film with the heroine but with the cinema subject. If there is a woman in the story, she has to be of a particular type. It’s not as if I start with Madhuri Dixit and then think what kind of film.
Satyajit Ray
The people I admire most hadn’t really followed a particular path that was visible when they were on it.
Anderson Cooper
I never mean, unless some particular circumstances should compel it, to possess another slave by purchase, it being among my first wishes to see some plan adopted, by which slavery in this country may be abolished by law.
George Washington
In Latin America in general, and Cuba in particular, poets have been the inspiration behind struggles for independence, struggles for freedom of all sorts.
Margarita Engle
Curiosity is missing. Curiosity in particular is something that the system, not only the educational system but, the parental… what you do as a parent at home.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Donald Trump singled out three particular states where he claimed there was, quote, “serious voter fraud” – Virginia, New Hampshire and California. Trump lost all three of those states.
Audie Cornish
Sofia is so active, and she made The Virgin Suicides, which I thought was great – all these things are inspiring to me, not in terms of creating a particular dress, but just in terms of knowing that there is this type of woman out there.
Marc Jacobs
General rules will bear hard on particular cases.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
All the reasons which require the subjection of a believer to the brethren of a particular church require his subjection to all his brethren in the Lord.
Charles Hodge
But some one will say that this supreme Being, who made all things, and those also who conferred on men particular benefits, are entitled to their respective worship.
Never forget that every living thing has a particular and needed job to do in the universal Plan and Purpose.
J. Boone
During President George W. Bush’s two terms, you couldn’t drive far without seeing a particular bumper sticker: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Now that Democrats control the White House and Congress, the left treats dissent as the lowest form of treason.
Monica Crowley
LOVE: A word properly applied to our delight in particular kinds of food; sometimes metaphorically spoken of the favorite objects of all our appetites.
Henry Fielding
I’m very interested in buildings that have meaning for a particular place. I suppose it feels slightly rude to me if the imposed style that lands in a place is almost stronger than the place. For me it’s about inventing a solution for each place; if people then want to know who did it, then great.
Thomas Heatherwick
But when researchers at Bell Labs discovered that static tends to come from particular places in the sky, the whole field of radio astronomy opened up.
Murray Gell-Mann
I’d like to think I’m going upriver in talking about world-view topics rather than particular political or controversial topics.
Max Lucado
My fullest concentration of energy is available to me only when I integrate all the parts of who I am, openly, allowing power from particular sources of my living to flow back and forth freely through all my different selves, without the restriction of externally imposed definition.
Audre Lorde
They’re not particular about whether you’re playing a flatted fifth or a ruptured 129th as long as they can dance to it.
Dizzy Gillespie
The mathematics are distinguished by a particular privilege, that is, in the course of ages, they may always advance and can never recede.
Edward Gibbon
What I’m doing when I’m doing my speaking engagements is that I’m delivering serious material with humor. So, instead of delivering humor without a particular point other than to entertain people, I’m delivering comedy in a serious way.
Andy Andrews
Number is the Word but is not utterance it is wave and light, though no one sees it it is rhythm and music, though no one hears it. Its variations are limitless and yet it is immutable. Each form of life is a particular reverberation of Number.
Maurice Druon
If people want to legalize a particular relationship, we need to be careful if that kind of relationship has been disapproved for millennia.
Dallin H. Oaks
Colon has always thought that heroes had some special kind of clockwork that made them go out and die famously for god, country and apple pie, or whatever particular delicacy their mother made. It had never occurred to him that they might do it because they’d get yelled at if they didn’t.
Terry Pratchett
In particular, the efforts to reestablish peace after the World War have been directed toward the formation of states and the regulation of their frontiers according to a consciously national program.
Christian Lous Lange
I don’t encourage socialists or anarchists to accept falsehoods, in particular, to see revolutionary potential where there is none.
Noam Chomsky
Literature and the arts are also criticism in a more particular and practical sense. They embody an expository reflection on, a value judgement of, the inheritance and context to which they pertain.
George Steiner
I do not think that my spiritual apprehensions are as dogmatically cultural as those of many people who have been brought up strictly in a particular tradition.
Quentin S. Crisp
Kids, everybody can get behind. It’s a bipartisan thing. We care about our kids’ health. But the truth is, it’s very important for us to talk to parents, in particular mothers, because it’s really our self-esteem, it’s our initiative.
Michelle Obama
If anyone should tell you that a particular person has spoken critically of you, don’t bother with excuses or defenses. Just smile and reply, “I guess that person doesn’t know about all my other faults. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have mentioned only these.”
The GOP establishment, in particular, is facing a pick-your-poison kind of decision. Many establishment Republicans dislike [Ted] Cruz personally. He has no Senate endorsements.
Mara Liasson
From my sketch files I’ll find a pose that shows the emotion behind a particular character’s story.
Frank Bruno
A creative idea will be defined simply as one that is both novel and useful or influential in a particular social setting.
Alice Weaver Flaherty
A particular disappointment is seldom more than an excrescence upon the trunk of a general good–a shower that spoils the pleasure party, but refreshes and enriches the earth.
Christian Nestell Bovee
My latter schooldays and my university days were during the war, when science – physics, in particular – was a very important and glamorous subject. A lot of us felt that if we couldn’t get into science, we might try engineering or medicine.
John Henry Carver
I believe in God, who made of one blood all nations that on earth do dwell. I believe that all men, black and brown and white, are brothers, varying through time and opportunity, in form and gift and feature, but differing in no essential particular, and alike in soul and the possibility of infinite development.
W. E. B. Du Bois
For those people who fail to see the injustices that are occurring, in particular with the Muslim community, I think it’s because you’ve sat in a seat of privilege for a long time, and you kind of choose to be myopic and not think of those people around you.
Ibtihaj Muhammad
A name is precious; it carries inside it a language, a history, a set of traditions, a particular way of looking at the world. Losing it meant losing my ties to all those things too.
Laila Lalami
Start it at no particular time of your life; wander at your free will all over your life; talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment; drop it the moment its interest threatens to pale.
Mark Twain
We want all our friends to tell us our bad qualities; it is only the particular ass that does so whom we can’t tolerate.
William James
‘The Fight Club’ DVD is great. I like anything that has really good extras because as an actor, it’s really great to see the behind-the-scenes stuff and see how different actors approach their particular project.
A. J. Cook
I grew up around a lot of various religions, so it’s a part of my consciousness in a way. Everything from heavy Catholicism to followers of Indian spiritual masters to Unitarian universalists – all in one family. Though the family aspect was stronger than any particular dogma.
St. Vincent
Growth can also involve producing services instead of goods. In particular, a major expansion of public and caring services (like child care, education, elder care, and other life-affirming programs) would generate huge increases in GDP and incomes, with virtually no impact on the environment.
Jim Stanford
If women were particular about men’s characters, they would never get married at all.
George Bernard Shaw
I don’t know if I have any particular views about women in positions of power, though I do think it’s more difficult for women, particularly in a Medieval setting. They have the additional problem that they’re a woman and people don’t want them in a position of power in an essentially patriarchal society.
George R. R. Martin
When the first fossils began to be found in eastern Africa, in the late 1950s, I thought, what a wonderful marriage this was, biology and anthropology. I was around 16 years old when I made this particular choice of academic pursuit.
Donald Johanson
All research in the cultural sciences in an age of specialization, once it is oriented towards a given subject matter through particular settings of problems and has established its methodological principles, will consider the analysis of the data as an end in itself.
Max Weber
Language is a tool adequate to provide any degree of precision relevant to a particular situation.
Kenneth Lee Pike
Luckily, many other people tell me how they have had a particular landscape photograph of mine in their office or bedroom for 15 years and it always speaks to them strongly whenever they see it
Any claims on the truth in my pictures are only to be answered in the sense that a particular event did in fact happen and did take place in the here and now.
Andreas Gursky
Sometimes it’s good just to be seduced by the particular cheeses spread out in front of you on a cheese counter.
Nigella Lawson
Whatever may be the tensions and the stresses of a particular day, there is always lurking close at hand the trailing beauty of forgotten joy or unremembered peace.
Howard Thurman
Political change and academic change and intellectual change are obviously crucial, but they don’t necessarily change society. They can change a particular class and give everybody in that class great arguments, but that doesn’t necessarily translate into the body of the culture.
Eve Ensler
I don’t see that there are any particular changes in popular music.
Lester Bangs
Russia comes from a place of deep resentment against the West, in general, and the United States in particular. They are rapacious, because they want back as much of their empire as they can grab. And we need to resist that. At the same time, we should be able to look for areas of common interest.
Daniel Fried
Virgil has very finely touched upon the female passion for dress and shows, in the character of Camilla; who though she seems to have shaken off all the other weaknesses of her sex, is still described as a woman in this particular.
Joseph Addison
I think Nevada is going to really be the first true test of whether or not these candidates have particular strengths in particular demographics.
Lucy Flores
I learned many things from Professor Brown, including his philosophy toward research, but there is one thing he said that I recall with particular clarity: ‘Do research that will be in the textbooks.’ It is not easy to do such work, but this has remained my motto.
Akira Suzuki
I’ve been asked a lot why didn’t ‘Ruined’ go to Broadway. It was the most successful play that Manhattan Theatre Club has ever had in that particular space, and yet we couldn’t find a home on Broadway.
Lynn Nottage
As a dancer, I know couples that have stayed married but separated to dance on different continents. Dance in general, but ballet in particular, is such a finite career. You can’t do it later in life, and it’s something that I think a dancer has to have some selfishness to fulfill.
Amanda Schull
The private life of one man shall be a more illustrious monarchy,–more formidable to its enemy, more sweet and serene in its influence to its friend, than any kingdom in history. For a man, rightly viewed, comprehendeth the particular natures of all men.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I don’t believe in any particular definition of the afterlife, but I do believe we’re spiritual creatures and more than our biology and that energy cannot be destroyed, but can change. I don’t know what the afterlife is going to be, but I’m not afraid of it.
Alan Ball
A justice is not like a law professor, who might say, ‘This is my theory… and this is what I’m going to be faithful to and consistent with,’ and in twenty years will look back and say, ‘I had a consistent theory of the First Amendment as applied to a particular area.’
John Roberts
The attraction, and my particular participation is in being able to communicate with my fans, answer their questions, get a feel for how they respond to Vader.
David Prowse
All we can thus far say about the duration of the units of [the business cycle] and each of [its] two phases is that it will depend on the nature of the particular innovations that carry a cycle,… and the financial conditions and habits prevailing in the business community in each case.
Joseph A. Schumpeter
Dishonesty in government is the business of every citizen. It is not enough to do your own job. There’s no particular gift in that. Democracy isn’t a gift. It’s a responsibility.
Dalton Trumbo
Customers won’t care about any particular technology unless it solves a particular problem in a superior way. And if you can’t monopolize a unique solution for a small market, you’ll be stuck with vicious competition.
Peter Thiel
It was sad leaving ‘All Saints’ because I was leaving a family that had nurtured me and looked after me for a couple of years, and at the same time that particular storyline wasn’t a surprise to me. I knew I was going. It had been worked out very carefully over many months.
Chris Vance
The uniform tenor of a man’s life furnishes better evidence of what he has said or done on any particular occasion than the word of any enemy.
Thomas Jefferson
We are largely the playthings of our fears. To one, fear of the dark; to another, of physical pain; to a third, of public ridicule; to a fourth, of poverty; to a fifth, of loneliness … for all of us, our particular creature waits in ambush.
Horace Walpole
In order to become soundly virtuous, it is advisable to make good practical resolutions concerning particular acts of the virtues and to be faithful in carrying the out afterwards. Without doing that, one is often virtuous only in one’s imagination.
Vincent de Paul
Freedom of expression – in particular, freedom of the press – guarantees popular participation in the decisions and actions of government, and popular participation is the essence of our democracy.
Corazon Aquino
As I progressed further with my project, it became obvious that it was really unimportant where I chose to photograph. The particular place simply provided an excuse to produce work… you can only see what you are ready to see – what mirrors your mind at that particular time.
George A Tice
But smiles and tears are so alike with me, they are neither of them confined to any particular feelings: I often cry when I am happy, and smile when I am sad.
Anne Bronte
You never want to be pigeonholed into something and have people think, “Oh, that’s the guy we call for this particular thing.”
Amanda Schull
I don’t want anybody to accuse me of taking advantage of the situation to pursue a particular political agenda.
Thomas de Maiziere
Children thrive in a variety of family forms; they develop normally with single parents, with unmarried parents, with multiple caretakers in a communal setting, and with traditional two-parent families. What children require is loving and attentive adults, not a particular family type.
Sandra Scarr
Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.
Patriotism is an ephemeral motive that scarcely ever outlasts the particular threat to society that aroused it.
Denis Diderot
There are, in the King case in particular, some names of confidential informants, persons to whom we promised confidentiality in return for their testimony. We have put their testimony in the public domain, but feel that their names should continue to be anonymous.
Louis Stokes
We need a type of theatre which not only releases the feelings, insights and impulses possible within the particular historical field of human relations in which the action takes place, but employs and encourages those thoughts and feelings which help transform the field itself.
Bertolt Brecht
Sometimes, I feel that Manhattan in particular has gotten really tame and gentrified or something.
Tea Leoni
I am thinking about chess in schools in particular. In the USA more than 3200 children competed in an event.
Anatoly Karpov
I think it is important to maintain a sense of self and confidence, not letting either falter for the sake of a particular part or project, no matter how great it might be.
Fred Savage
There wasn’t any particular player I modeled my game after. I tried to learn from everyone and create my own style. I studied past players… Truth be told I never had a favorite player. It’s just not my nature to go around idolizing people. I just go try to learn.
Magnus Carlsen
I like to give people novels I think they would like, on no particular occasion – just when we’re in a bookstore together. I like to receive reference books on my birthday.
Daniel Handler
I’m not psychic. I cannot know what is in the mind of particular public figures.
John Bercow
We choose our sex, our color, our country, and then we look around for the particular set of parents who will mirror the pattern we are bringing in to work on in this lifetime.
Louise L. Hay
People always think of technology as something having silicon in it. But a pencil is technology. Any language is technology. Technology is a tool we use to accomplish a particular task and when one talks about appropriate technology in developing countries, appropriate may mean anything from fire to solar electricity.
Mae Jemison
You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election. Push to change it. But don’t break it. Don’t break what our predecessors spent over two centuries building. That’s not being faithful to what this country’s about.
Barack Obama
You must be absolutely honest and true in the depicting of a totem for meaning is attached to every line. You must be most particular about detail and proportion.
Emily Carr
Suppose you like someone very much. Then, by a familiar halo effect, you will also be prone to believe many good things about that person – you will be biased in their favor. Most of us like ourselves very much, and that suffices to explain self-assessments that are biased in a particular direction.
Daniel Kahneman
‘Camp’ is a vision of the world in terms of style – but a particular style. It is the love of the exaggerated.
Susan Sontag
Remember that the wit, humour, and jokes of most mixed companies are local. They thrive in that particular soil, but will not often bear transplanting.
Lord Chesterfield
I think that men of my generation – not me in particular – are among the most fortunate men in the universe.
Sergio Leone
I’m not faithful to one particular medium, and it’s what I try to teach to people who work with me.
Fay Godwin
The ultimate end is a nation that lies under the concept of the Declaration of Indepen dence. The Declaration of Independence is such an extraordinary statement – it was designed by people skeptical of government, local or national, but in particular national.
Malcolm Wallop
Whoever commits a fraud is guilty not only of the particular injury to him who he deceives, but of the diminution of that confidence which constitutes not only the ease but the existence of society.
Samuel Johnson
When there’s an ache, you want to be like aspirin, not vitamins. Aspirin solves a very particular problem someone has, whereas vitamins are a general “nice to have” market.
Reed Hastings
Female friendships are important because they help define us in a particular time and place.
Victoria Scott
God is not in the vastness of greatness. He is hid in the vastness of smallness . He is not in the general. He is in the particular.
Pearl S. Buck
People like change in general, but not in particular.
William J. Clinton
Go practice if you please with men and women: leave a child alone for Christ’s particular love’s sake!
Robert Browning
I probably also wanted to be black at that particular time [ 9 years old] as well.
David Bowie
He who writes much will not easily escape a manner, such a recurrence of particular modes as may be easily noted.
Samuel Johnson
Education today, in this particular social period, is assuming truly unlimited importance. And the increased emphasis on its practical value can be summed up in one sentence: education is the best weapon for peace.
Maria Montessori
Oftentimes when I do a project I do get influenced by the wardrobe. I certainly learned a lot from ‘Mad Men’ and from Janie (Bryant) in particular. She’s just so fabulous.
Christina Hendricks
I think an editing style is something that is ascribed to the work after-the-fact. I don’t think you go in with a particular intention, but I think if there is an integrity to the work and the material you are working with, the work comes from the nature of that material.
Jay Cassidy
There are some circumstances in which the First Amendment interest comes up against another interest that is really important and in which we have to make a decision in a particular case as to which is more important.
Floyd Abrams
Just as ecstasy purifies you of the particular and the contingent, leaving nothing except light and darkness, so insomnia kills off the multiplicity and diversity of the world, leaving you prey to your private obsessions.
Emile M. Cioran
I’ve pretty much kicked over every stone. And there’s nothing in me that says, “I must create this particular thing.”
Sandra Bullock
Call it stubborn, call it ignorant, call it what you want, but I don’t think I have to join a particular faith or culture or creed or religion just to fit in, since I was part of the clique since it’s inception.
Phife Dawg
It never dawned on me at any particular time of my life that people are paid tremendous money to sing.
Ben E. King
It’s many things that she had to deal with, and she got to the point where [my wife] didn’t know what to believe anymore and she just didn’t care to live her life anymore. I think it was devastating at that particular time, and it’s even more devastating today as we grow older.
John Carlos
A man is like a bit of Labrador spar, which has no luster as you turn it in your hand, until you come to a particular angle; then it shows deep and beautiful colors.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A memoir takes some particular threads, some incidents, some experience from a person’s life and gives an account of it.
Richard Hell
I don’t think the state will allow people to occupy a particular space unless it feels that allowing that will end up in a kind of complacency, and the effectiveness and urgency of the protest will be lost.
Arundhati Roy
The people on the edge of Hell were most afraid of the devil; for those already in hell the devil was only another and no one in particular.
Joanne Greenberg
I have myself a poetical enthusiasm for pigs, and the paradise of my fancy is one where pigs have wings. But it is only men, especially wise men, who discuss whether pigs can fly; we have no particular proof that pigs ever discuss it.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I do read P.D. James because she pays much more attention to character, to a particular atmosphere or setting. But most mystery writers, I think, are controlled by the plot.
Martha Grimes
If we will not interfere with our thought, but will act entirely, or see how the thing stands in God, we know the particular thing, and every thing, and every man.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
If I have any particular appeal to women, maybe it’s because I listen more than other guys do and appreciate how they think and feel about things.
Ryan Gosling
But it’s a very universal story and the thing is I was reluctant to answer that question because I don’t want people latching on to a particular stereotype.
Parminder Nagra
They had spent a year in France for no particular reason, and then drifted here and there unrestfully wherever people played polo and were rich together.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
So my weakness is sweets. I like bread pudding and cheesecake in particular.
Vivek Murthy
How do popular attitudes get formed? Do the movies just reflect it or inform it? Where does this particular idea come from? I don’t know if I can say anything too illuminating.
Thom Andersen
An aphorism is a generalization of sorts, and our present-day writers seem more at home with the particular.
Anatole Broyard
In that way, as an actor in particular, you’re powerless. And so in that way as an actor in particular you can’t make mistakes.
Jake Gyllenhaal
I’m not tied to any particular political line.
John Hewson
For me, the greatest kind of success that I’ve had on a particular project or in exploring a role does come through collaboration. I wouldn’t want to do a movie where everything I do the director just says, “Good job” and I’m under directed.
Miles Teller
It’s really hard when you read literature in a language that’s not your own. There are all these cultural references you have to be born into that particular language to get.
Chath Piersath
Mankind have their local attachments. They have a particular regard for the spot, in which they were born and nurtured.
Thomas Clarkson
Arts and sciences in one and the same century have arrived at great perfection; and no wonder, since every age has a kind of universal genius, which inclines those that live in it to some particular studies; the work then, being pushed on by many hands, must go forward.
John Dryden
It must be an odd feeling to be thankful to nobody in particular. Christians in public institutions often see this odd thing happening on Thanksgiving Day. Everyone in the institution seems to be thankful ‘in general.’ It’s very strange. It’s a little like being married in general.
Cornelius Plantinga
To be a miracle worker you do not have to get a doctoral degree, become a minister, eat a particular food, or be able to meditate for long hours. All you need to do is to begin to see beauty in your life and those around you.
Alan Cohen
You know, I’m very particular about my sheets. They have to be one hundred percent cotton, with a high thread count. Only cotton. No flannel.
Ryan Murphy
I think probably winning these things [an Oscar] can be a bit of a curse depending on who you are and how you think. But I haven’t been on a journey to get anywhere in particular, so that hasn’t changed. And my criteria for choosing projects hasn’t changed.
Cate Blanchett
Readiness is a student’s entry point relative to a particular understanding or skill.
Carol Ann Tomlinson
I happen to love engineering. I love figuring things out in a spatial sense, that whole realm of working with mechanical parts, and the relationship of the parts, and things like ratios and the speeds of particular objects.
Arthur Ganson
I never much cared for politics. I love policy, and I love international policy in particular. I got to be Secretary of State; it really doesn’t get much better than that. I love what I do. I love being a professor.
Condoleezza Rice
We have not looked at any particular movies [in creating War Horse], but again, it’s hard not to see the similarities between those movies [because of those filmmakers’ influence on the industry].
Janusz Kaminski
We recycle everything in my house. I’m not into any particular organizations, but I’m doing my part and that makes me feel okay.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar
Every man hath a good and a bad angel attending on him in particular all his life long.
Robert Burton
It’s curiosity, and always a sense of poetry. You see it in particular in the chapter “Iceland” where I’m reciting ancient Icelandic poetry. It has this very beautiful gravitas in conjunction with the volcanoes.
Werner Herzog
All my kids love superheroes, but my middle daughter in particular is obsessed with Wonder Woman and Batgirl.
Mark Millar
One of my complaints with American TV characters is that they all have a particular schtick, a hook.
Kevin McKidd
When you’re dead, you’re dead. I believe in shapes – you’re not conscious of it, but you’re like a tree that grows but takes a particular shape that is prewritten.
Gaspar Noe
The issue I have always felt most strongly about is hunger in America, in particular the children.
Sandra Lee
You need to be able to do that to market these possibilities to these specific investors who would be interested in a sector of that kind. It’s what would be normally done by anybody with regard to attracting investment to particular sectors of the economy.
Thabo Mbeki
In the Atlantean period there were many energies being used and information and knowledge being used which were, for particular reasons of safety, withdrawn, shall we say, to prevent complete catastrophe, to prevent total destruction of your planet.
David Icke
All of us grow up in particular realities – a home, family, a clan, a small town, a neighborhood. Depending upon how we’re brought up, we are either deeply aware of the particular reading of reality into which we are born, or we are peripherally aware of it.
Chaim Potok
Speaking about myself, I’ve been pleasantly surprised that my older plays are still being performed. Most important is that they still have something to say to today’s audience, in particular the young people who enjoy my plays. That’s the best I could hope for, that the plays aren’t single-use products of one era.
Vaclav Havel
In 1945, just at the end of World War II, the American poet Muriel Rukeyser wrote a remarkable book called The Life of Poetry. In it she says that on any particular day in the world, if poetry ceased to exist, it would immediately be reinvented on that same day.
Adrienne Rich
If you’re writing a screenplay from scratch, it involves a lot of creation. In this play, I had a strong main character and it involved some creation around him. That’s what I like about adapting that particular play because I added some maneuvering space as a scriptwriter to invent my own things.
Philippe Falardeau
The most fascinating women are those that can most enrich the every day moments of existence. In a particular and attaching sense, they are those that can partake our pleasures and our pains in the liveliest and most devoted manner. Beauty is little without this; with it she is triumphant.
Leigh Hunt
Our predecessors understood that the ties that bind America are far stronger than disagreements over any particular policy and far more durable and profound than any party affiliation.
Madeleine Albright
Calvinism is an all-embracing system of principles… It is rooted in a form of religion which was peculiarly its own, and form that specific religious consciousness there was developed first a particular theology, then a special church-order, and then a given form for political and social life.
Abraham Kuyper
The whole Haley-Nathan marriage deal was a pretty good twist huh? I hope we got all of you with it. That particular story line even suprised me when I read it, it’s a good one and it’ll provide for some good stories to come.
James Lafferty
The actual consequences of Plan Colombia are to devastate peasant communities, which have been driven to drug production. These peasants have no particular desire to grow coca, but their other means of livelihood have been wiped out.
Noam Chomsky
Could the situation be that we no longer believe in that particular place? Or maybe we were all promised Heaven in our lifetimes, and what we ended up with can’t help but suffer in comparison.
Douglas Coupland
The only books that influence us are those for which we are ready, and which have gone a little farther down our particular path than we have yet got ourselves.
E. M. Forster
The first question concerning the Celestial Bodies is whether there be a system, that is whether the world or universe compose together one globe, with a center, or whether the particular globes of earth and stars be scattered dispersedly, each on its own roots, without any system or common center.
Francis Bacon
As one reads mathematics, one needs to have an active mind, asking questions, forming mental connections between the current topic and other ideas from other contexts, so as to develop a sense of the structure, not just familiarity with a particular tour through the structure.
William Thurston
This is a particular thing, you know, catholic stories of martyrs who had their head removed and then continued to be miraculous in the last moments of their life.
Black Francis
Because Lincoln is so closely identified with what it is to be American, everyone wants to claim him, to rewrite his story to satisfy their own particular needs. For my own people, it was important to imagine him as the Great Emancipator, the Moses who led us out of slavery.
Henry Louis Gates
The option of quitting has long been undervalued and underused… Quitters must not be frightened by the potentially cataclysmic outcome of a particular quit.
Evan Harris
Using your imagination to create mental images stimulates your mind, helps organize your life and keeps your focus in a particular direction. It allows your unconscious mind to work toward the image you have created, the goal. It’s about understand the life you want to live, and seeing it unfold before you.
Georges St-Pierre
What’s the go of that? What’s the particular go of that?
James Clerk Maxwell
Millions of people die every day. Everyone’s got to go sometime. I’ve came by this particular tumor honestly. If you smoke, which I did for many years very heavily with occasional interruption, and if you use alcohol, you make yourself a candidate for it in your sixties.
Christopher Hitchens
Every hour in itself, as it respects us in particular, is the only one we can call our own.
Jean de la Bruyere
What is good for you creatively is usually bad commercially. You thrive financially by sticking to a series and not fiddling about too much. You do yourself harm by moving away from the series and the genre. By trying things not based in that particular mode of writing, you will just lose readers.
John Connolly
I’ve been pretty transparent with all that I’ve done. I think my work speaks a lot for who I am. So, I don’t think there’s a particular thing I’d like them to know.
Tyler Perry
To answer the purpose of the adversaries of the Constitution, they ought to prove, not merely that particular provisions in it are not the best, which might have been imagined; but that the plan upon the whole is bad and pernicious.
Alexander Hamilton
The Epistles in the New Testament have all of them a particular reference to the condition and usages of the Christian world at the time they were written.
Joseph Butler
Bores can be divided into two classes; those who have their own particular subject, and those who do not need a subject.
A. A. Milne
Anyone who knows history, particularly the history of Europe, will, I think, recognize that the domination of education or of government by any one particular religious faith is never a happy arrangement for the people.
Eleanor Roosevelt
I’ve never really found inspiration for story ideas in the news, but I’d say it certainly affects our lives in so many ways. I would say that certainly the stories of the day appear in the work – I just have never gone so far as to say, well, this particular event could influence a plot of an entire book.
Michael Koryta
If a dread of not being understood be hidden in the breasts of other young people to anything like the extent to which it used to be hidden in mine – which I consider probable, as I have no particular reason to suspect myself of having been a monstrosity – it is the key to many reservations.
Charles Dickens
As president of the largest Jewish organization, I disposed of budgets of hundreds of millions of dollars; I directed thousands of employees, and all this, I emphasize again, not for one particular state, but within the frame work of International Jewry.
Nahum Goldmann
A move of the Spirit of God is coming to the Catholic Church. The youth in particular will be ignited with a fresh fire of zeal and passion for Christ and His Gospel. A radical company of Believers will arise in the Catholic Church during this move, and they will release a flow of God’s love and truth into the nations.
Patricia King
Worship is not a twenty minute period during a church service, but a lifestyle of relating to God in a particular way.
Mike Bickle
Unfortunately, I experienced some sexual abuse. It was a known and admitted fact of life amongst us that there was this particular man, and you didn’t want to be left in the dressing room with him. It took many years to come to terms with it and to forgive those incidents that I felt had deeply hurt me.
Gabriel Byrne
Older actors, and women in particular, are getting more opportunities. It pleases me, its very good news for us. They say that people are living longer, and maybe it’s just that there’s more of us out there.
Christopher Walken
There are people whom even children’s literature would corrupt. They read with particular enjoyment the piquant passages in the Psalter and in the Wisdom of Solomon.
Anton Chekhov
Even the cerebral characters I play seem to have physical quirks. They’re all “physically inhabited,” for lack off a better expression. For instance, Sherlock Holmes has very particular physical gestures which are drawn out in such detail.
Benedict Cumberbatch
In my particular instance, I came from a family that didn’t have anything. Everything I earned in life I made. Myself. With songs that I wrote.
Billy Corgan
The more you look into health and health inequalities, you realize that a lot of it is not due to a particular disease – it’s really linked to underlying societal issues such as poverty, inequity, lack of access to safe drinking water and housing. And these are all the things we focus on at CARE.
Helene D. Gayle
Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. If you first understand that, then you will see how impossible it is to organize a belief.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
If surrealism ever comes to adopt a particular line of moral conduct, it has only to accept the discipline that Picasso has accepted and will continue to accept.
Andre Breton
I think the open software movement (and Linux in particular) is laudable.
Kenneth P. Thompson
I must say that the tasks of the youth in general, and of the Young Communist Leagues and all other organisations in particular, might be summed up in a single word: learn.
Vladimir Lenin
There is a spirit and a need and a man at the beginning of every great human advance. Every one of these must be right for that particular moment of history, or nothing happens.
Coretta Scott King
Courses in the humanities, in particular, often seem impractical, but they are vital, because they stretch your imagination and challenge your mind to become more responsive, more critical, bigger.
Martha Nussbaum
The property of the estate owners (pomeshchiks) doesn’t belong to any particular detachment, but to the people as a whole. Let the people take what they want.
Maria Nikiforova
The impulse of nature, fused through the personality of the artist by laws arising from the particular nature of the medium, produces the rhythm and the personal expression of a work. Then the life of the composition becomes a spiritual unity.
Hans Hofmann
My taste tends to skew a little bit towards the more feminine. Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta. Some of his wedding dresses in particular have been spectacular.
Danielle Panabaker
In should be the duty of every soldier to reflect on the experiences of the past, in the endeavor to discover improvements, in his particular sphere of action, which are practicable in the immediate future.
B. H. Liddell Hart
Any life is lived in a particular time and place. Every life is impacted by the family’s socio-economic circumstances, and, in later life, by the person’s.
Marge Piercy
We as men, in particular black men, are constantly supported, nurtured, forgiven, apologized for, led, followed and coddled by black women, and they get very little in return.
Jesse Williams
They all laugh. We all laugh. And it occurs to me that I might be meeting Tobias’s true faction. They are not characterized by a particular virtue. They claim all colors, all activities, all virtues, and all flaws as their own.
Veronica Roth
It is the responsibility of Pastors to encourage, also by their personal witness, the practice of Eucharistic adoration, and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in particular, as well as prayer of adoration before Christ present under the Eucharistic species.
Pope John Paul II
The state is based on this contradiction. It is based on the contradiction between public and private life, between universal and particular interests. For this reason, the state must confine itself to formal, negative activities.
Karl Marx
They talked about nothing in particular, sentences that had meaning only in the sound of the voices, in warm gaiety, in the ease of complete relaxation.
Ayn Rand
The cardones cactus is very similar to saguaro cactus in Arizona. These cacti only grow in very specific, particular places.
James Turrell
Most people have made this mistake of thinking Middle-earth is a particular kind of earth or is another planet of the science fiction sort but it’s just an old fashioned word for this world we live in, as imagined surrounded by the Ocean.
J. R. R. Tolkien
We don’t have storm troopers that just knock on the door of every American citizen. We don’t do that for any crime. But when we have evidence that a particular person has committed a crime, we send law enforcement to apprehend them.
Ted Cruz
You’re going to have to settle on one eventually. Why not save us both the hassle, close your eyes and point. Whoever you’re pointing at will be our winner.” “I’ve played that game once before. Ended up–” Paris shuddered. “Never mind. It’s not good to wander down that particular memory trail. So no. Just no.
Gena Showalter
Envy is never general, but always very particular – at least envy of the kind one feels strongly.
Joseph Epstein
People say to me that I can’t be nervous because I’ve had such a wealth of experience, but I tell them that I have never done this particular part before.
Brenda Blethyn
The new art must be based upon science – in particular, upon mathematics, as the most exact, logical, and graphically constructive of the sciences.
Albrecht Durer
People had no tolerance for your particular hardship unless you knew how to entertain them with it.
Don DeLillo
Spanish is a poetic language, in particular the Spanish of Mexico which has a wonderful animistic attitude you might not see in the Spanish of the peninsula. I think it has to do with the indigenous way of looking at nature.
Sandra Cisneros
Knowledge is the reward of action. For it is by doing things that one becomes transformed. Executing a symbolical gesture, actually living through, to the very limit, a particular role, one comes to realize the truth inherent in the role. Suffering its consequences, one fathoms and exhausts its contents.
Heinrich Zimmer
There’s no particular evidence that any of the lower mammals or any of the other animals have any interest in aesthetics at all. But Homo sapiens does, always has and always will.
Jock Sturges
I personally don’t subscribe to any particular cosmology or beleif system. I’m a seer.
Frederick Lenz
We’re all more or less interested in the ‘swinging sixties’, of course, but that’s not what I mean. I’m interested in the particular naive glamour that clings to the post-war and pre-Hendrix era.
Quentin S. Crisp
Hereditary right should be kept sacred, not from any inalienable right in a particular family, but to avoid the consequences that usually attend the ambition of competitors.
Jonathan Swift
I think it’s wrong for North America in particular, the West in general to make a comparison between the economic situation in Cuba and the extraordinarily developed industrial complex of North America.
Huey Newton
Nullification is not a ‘defense’ recognized by law, but rather a mechanism that permits a jury, as community conscience, to disregard the strict requirements of law where it finds that those requirements cannot justly be applied in a particular case.
David L. Bazelon
As the classes in modern life come together, we have become much more intensely class conscious. It’s a very curious thing. But I deal with human beings with whom I’ve come in contact and have had a chance to closely observe. Their upper-classness is not a matter of particular fascination for me.
Louis Auchincloss
The great thing is that whether we have faith or not, we are by and large very tolerant of people, whatever their particular view.
Ed Miliband
I don’t know that there’s any particular scientific evidence that you could say, more guys get hurt in this offense versus that one, or hurry-up, or whatever, but everything that we’ve ever done in the NCAA is about exposure. How many exposures does a player get?
Nick Saban
The particular feature of Berlin – well, all you need to do is look at the map: the geographical position of the city right in the heart of Europe, and the separation of the most powerful two blocs we’ve ever had in history, which went all the way through Germany.
Markus Wolf
In the texts, and as His Holiness the Dalai Lama reminds us, we should check the person’s behavior not when they’re sitting on a big throne, but behind the scenes. How do they treat ordinary people – not the big sponsors – but just ordinary people who are of no particular importance to them.
Tenzin Palmo
The baby looks at things all day without winking; that is because his eyes are not focused on any particular object. He goes without knowing where he is going, and stops without knowing what he is doing. He merges himself within the surroundings and moves along with it. These are the principles of mental hygiene.
As has repeatedly been stated, the underlying hypothesis, which in a number of cases has been supported by direct experimental evidence, is that each gene controls the production, function, and specificity of a particular enzyme.
Edward Lawrie Tatum
Being a journalist, Hacker had no particular talent for reporting facts.
Jonathan Lynn
In particular, I found praying very disturbing, like swimming with bricks tied to your feet. And yet I was drawn to it constantly.
Jack Dee
Remember that every science is based upon an abstraction. An abstraction is taking a point of view or looking at things under a certain aspect or from a particular angle.
Fulton J. Sheen
I think operating systems work best if they’re free and open. Particular applications are more likely to be proprietary.
Larry Wall
People see America through particular lenses, either their profession, their race or their gender. So the party that speaks to our racial perceptions and offers solutions to the racial difficulties which we face is the party that’s going to be rewarded with our votes.
Julian Bond
I don’t think anybody can be held accountable or responsible for anyone’s behaviors expect the individual. This goes beyond that particular situation.
Iyanla Vanzant
There is something about being a director where, for me personally, I get to . . . it’s the closest I’ll ever come to being able to be a stand up. And to use my particular sense of humor, and hear people laughing, without me having to stand up in front of an audience and tell jokes.
Barry Sonnenfeld
There’s plenty more fish in the sea than Prince Jonathan,” he told her softly. “And this particular fish loves you with all his crooked heart.” -George to Alanna
Tamora Pierce
Our ordinary language has no means for describing a particular shade of color. Thus it is incapable of producing a picture of this color.
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Respect your characters, even the В­minor ones. In art, as in life, everyone is the hero of their own particular story; it is worth thinking about what your minor characters’ stories are, even though they may intersect only slightly with your protagonist’s.
Sarah Waters
Linux is a complex example of the wisdom of crowds. It’s a good example in the sense that it shows you can set people to work in a decentralized way – that is, without anyone really directing their efforts in a particular direction – and still trust that they’re going to come up with good answers.
James Surowiecki
As for my voice, it cannot be categorized-and I like it that way, because I sing things that would be considered in the dramatic, mezzo or spinto range. I like so many different kinds of music that I’ve never allowed myself the limitations of one particular range.
Jessye Norman
I had the feeling that if I encountered anyone they would intuit my disgrace and would judge me instantly. Nothing is more isolating than having a particular history. At least that’s what I thought. Now I know: all pain is the same. Only the details are different.
Kevin Powers
It’s not merely that conservatives are better at selling their product, or that they happen to have an easier-and undoubtedly simpler-ideological product to sell. It’s that they know what they are selling. Liberals in general and Obama in particular cannot say the same.
Eric Alterman
Know what is behind you, and pay particular attention to anything out of place.
Jeff Cooper
To have in general but little feeling, seems to be the only security against feeling too much on any particular occasion.
George Eliot
Depression presents itself as a realism regarding the rottenness of the world in general and the rottenness of your life in particular.
Jonathan Franzen
You have this mounting aggressive ignorance with the rabbit’s foot of their particular religion. You don’t really have any kind of spiritual law, just a kind of a rabid mental illness. The songs are a little slice of life.
Joni Mitchell
You don’t have to deserve your mother’s love. You have to deserve your father s. He’s more particular. The father is always a Republican towards his son, and his mother’s always a Democrat.
Robert Frost
What makes a publisher decide to market a book to a particular audience is not the subject matter but the style.
Russell Smith
I don’t have a particular go-to political blog.
Justin Amash
I have never been in, nor have I had any strong particular desire to be in, what is termed a costume drama, but I keep forgetting to think of ‘Charles II’ as a costume drama.
Martin Freeman
There are many Welsh who are taciturn, truthful, well formed, open minded, handsome and peaceful, even if no particular individual immediately springs to mind.
Auberon Waugh
I don’t think there is a particular responsibility on designers that is not on other professions… I think there’s a responsibility for all of us to engage on all levels.
Stefan Sagmeister
Every passion gives a particular cast to the countenance, and is apt to discover itself in some feature or other. I have seen an eye curse for half an hour together, and an eyebrow call a man a scoundrel.
Joseph Addison
One of the least impressive liberties is the liberty to starve. This particular liberty is freely accorded to authors.
Arnold Goodman, Baron Goodman
Every photographed object is merely the trace left behind by the disappearance of all the rest. It is an almost perfect crime, an almost total resolution of the world, which merely leave the illusion of a particular object shining forth, the image of which then becomes an impenetrable enigma.
Jean Baudrillard
There’s no particular role that comes to mind that I’d like to take on, but for me, it’s about playing interesting characters and not just two-dimensional ones.
Michelle Dockery
As I say, the Animals had a particular concept of themselves as a band. There was an anarchic spirit in it, which was being flattened by commercial designs, attitudes, and needs.
Alan Price
People who are involved in self-discovery lead different types of lives. The lives they lead are not necessarily the lives of renunciation. Rather, it is a structuring of the elements in your life in a particular way.
Frederick Lenz
It is not the particular man in power that I oppose, but the power itself, which is unjust.
Wendy McElroy
Lo, I am the most stupendous in the land at my particular profession.
Chris Jericho
There’s always an intellectual side to the films Ang Lee’s doing and to the characters, and there’s such a deep knowledge when you’ve worked with the actors that he’s worked with, on stage in particular, but also in film.
Jake Gyllenhaal
You see, I’m a believer in the rhapsodic. I like things that are happy. For no particular reason, I just like them. Most people don’t seem to be like that in this particular place, in this world. You can tell by what they focus on. Read a newspaper, watch a TV show, go to a movie, look at a life.
Frederick Lenz
I am fearful, or suspicious, of generalizations… They cannot guide me reliably in making decisions about particular individuals.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
We were all flying around up and down the coast near Dunkirk looking for enemy aircraft which seemed also to be milling around with no particular cohesion.
Douglas Bader
Each celestial body, in fact each and every atom, produces a particular sound on account of its movement, its rhythm or vibration. All these sounds and vibrations form a universal harmony in which each element, while having it’s own function and character, contributes to the whole.
I never fell in love with another woman. I cannot have a relationship with a woman if I’m not in love…I’m a very particular person, I’m not very much interested in short adventures with women or girls. I have to fall in love with someone in order to have a realtionship with her.
Omar Sharif
No science is ever frightening to Christians. Religious people don’t need the science to come out any particular way on IQ or AIDS or sex differences any more than they need the science to come out any particular way on evolution…If evolution is true, then God created evolution.
Ann Coulter
The military community in particular, I think, could always be more supported, especially people who are being processed out of the military and trying to readjust to being civilians.
Adam Driver
What I search for continuously in my art is adequate language, language I hope can stand beyond any particular occasion. What I’m finding is that in our increasingly dysfunctional U.S. society, marvelous poetry is being written – out of and amid the dysfunction.
Adrienne Rich
Music, uniquely among the arts, is both completely abstract and profoundly emotional. It has no power to represent anything particular or external, but it has a unique power to express inner states or feelings. Music can pierce the heart directly; it needs no mediation.
Oliver Sacks
Growing up in Atlanta, it brings a particular swagger about a person. There are three or four places in the country where people think of fashion: One is LA, obviously. Another is New York. And I think Atlanta has to be in the top five cities where fashion is very big.
Cam Newton
I suppose that being moved to write a song is more applicable to me, I have to be moved, I have to have a reason to write a particular song.
Neil Diamond
My father, my grandfather, the wrestling business, the WWE in particular, has really given me everything. A lot of happiness, my kids are taken care of, my wife is happy, they get to travel. A lot of pluses come with it; the Hall Of Fame would just be the cherry on top.
Randy Orton
The tendency is to blame boredom on the environment. “This town is really dull” or “What a boring speaker.” The particular town or speaker is never dull, it is you experiencing the boredom, and you can eliminate it by doing something else with your mind or energy at that moment.
Wayne Dyer
I’m a student of cinema in general, not just of one particular genre. So it was very important to me and to my soul to go out and do something different.
James Wan
Atoms are very special: they like certain particular partners, certain particular directions, and so on. It is the job of physics to analyze why each one wants what it wants.
Richard P. Feynman
Obligations may be universal or particular.
Tom G. Palmer
I never struggled with injury problems because of my preparation – in particular my stretching.
Edwin Moses
Party is a body of men united, for promoting by their joint endeavours the national interest, upon some particular principle in which they are all agreed.
Edmund Burke
I don’t believe any real artists have ever been non-political. They may have been insensitive to this particular plight or insensitive to that, but they were political, because that’s what an artist is-a politician.
Toni Morrison
Photographers direct the eye toward a particular object. We who write, one hopes, are directing the heart and the soul.
Nikki Giovanni
Looking back over my life so far I am able to remember specific days that were perfect. These tend to be days, and parts of days, in which nothing in particular happened, except that I was utterly happy.
Daniel Pinkwater
Where a man has a passion for meditating without the capacity of thinking, a particular idea fixes itself fast, and soon creates a mental disease.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The Archivist of the United States essentially works for the American people across partisan lines and not, regardless of which Administration nominates the person, for a particular President or political party.
Allen Weinstein
Becoming a bird ecologist was just luck! I had the chance to be a field assistant for a scientist working in the Galapagos Islands, and while I was there, I saw a particular problem in behavioral biology that I wanted to solve and, in the process, made myself into a bird ecologist.
David J. Anderson
Creatures of a very particular making, we need to know the cultural blinders that narrow our world view as well as the psychological blinders that narrow our view of our personal experience.
Christina Baldwin
Horror fans are a particular breed. They analyze films with such detail and expertise that I am reminded of the Canadian literary critic Northrup Frye, who approached literature with similar archetypal analysis.
Roger Ebert
I think what I’m gonna do is keep being international and not being grounded to any one particular thing. As long as I’m entertaining people in one way or another and maintaining some sort of adventurous life with my family in tow, then I’ll be happy.
Rhys Darby
I don’t ever write with a particular audience in mind. I just write books that please me.
William Landay
I loved doing problems in school. I’d take them home and make up new ones of my own. But the best problem I ever found, I found in my local public library. I was just browsing through the section of math books and I found this one book, which was all about one particular problem – Fermat’s Last Theorem.
Andrew Wiles
It’s hard to pick out one particular wrestler.
Owen Hart
I had no name for that particular hue of orange, other than unfortunate.
Rachel Caine
I think you can’t go into any story-breaking process thinking, ‘What if they come off as unlikeable?’ You just gotta break the story because if you know who your character is, the story will tell you. The story will dictate and say, “This feels off-kilter for this particular person.”
Amy Sherman-Palladino
As we lose our vagueness about ourself, our values, our life situation, we become available to the moment. It is there, in the particular, that we contact the creative self. Art lies in the moment of encounter: we meet our truth and we meet ourselves; we meet ourselves and we meet our self-expression .
Julia Cameron
Remember: You are the only human being in the world who can help this particular customer at this particular moment in time.
Tom Peters
I think the new spirituality will be a spirituality that’s not based on a particular dogma. And that steps away from the old spiritual paradigm that we have created on this planet, which comes from a thought that there is such a thing as being better.
Neale Donald Walsch
We pay a subsidy. Money coming over the border, they’re – there are so many ways that Mexico makes money with us, Bob. There are so many different ways, five in particular, that we will take it out of there.
Donald Trump
There were some particular themes that I knew I wanted to hit, and when I got deeper into the project I found that it was becoming serious in and on its own. By the end, it’s not very funny at all. I think, now, that part of the power of the book is that the jokes are kind of sparkly distractions.
Moshe Kasher
There are some exceptions: Chicago, my hometown, in particular. But overall in the country this is a much safer place than it used to be.
Barack Obama
People frequently believe the creative life is grounded in fantasy. The more difficult truth is that creativity is grounded in reality, in the particular, the focused, the well observed or specifically imagined.
Julia Cameron
There certainly was a lot of potential in the air for doing a magazine which focused on the way business, in particular, was being transformed by the Internet.
James Daly
I’m very much for strengthening our industry at home. It’s great now there’s a lot of work happening but I think with Irish film in particular, the views were starting to get a little stereotypical and we were pigeonholing ourselves a little bit. We needed to get out of that.
Saoirse Ronan
Every parent wants to know that their children are protected against those who have a particular agenda until they get old enough to make decisions for themselves.
Iain Duncan Smith
Memory is like patches of sunlight in an overcast valley, shifting with the movement of the clouds. Now and then the light will fall on a particular point in time, illuminating it for a moment before the wind seals up the gap, and the world is in shadows again.
Tan Twan Eng
I think I created my particular stage persona out of my dad’s life. And perhaps I even built it to suit him to some degree. I was looking for – when I was looking for a voice to mix with my voice, I put on my father’s work clothes, as I say in the book, and I went to work.
Bruce Springsteen
The mind reproduces itself by transmitting its symbols to other intermediaries, human and mechanical, than the particular brain that first assembled them.
Lewis Mumford
There’s not one thing in particular that influences my music, but I write about what I know. It’s based in personal experience. That’s not to say all the songs are biographical, because sometimes it’s what I’ve seen in others’ lives.
Holly Golightly
Although the particular inclination of the homosexual person is not a sin, it is more or less strong tendency ordered to an intrinsic moral evil, and thus the inclination itself must be seen as an objective disorder.
Pope Benedict XVI
It really lasted the whole game, because I was really untouchable, unstoppable that game. But it was heightened on one particular play, and that was the longest run where everything completely slowed down. My awareness was so keen, it was so heightened, it was really amazing.
Marcus Allen
Random? You’ВЂВ™d almost think we were dealing with an identifiable enemy motivated by a distinct ideology that is drawn verbatim from a particular belief system’ВЂВ™s scriptures. Nah . . .
Andrew C. McCarthy
Leave part of the yard rough. Don’t manicure everything. Small children in particular love to turn over rocks and find bugs, and give them some space to do that. Take your child fishing. Take your child on hikes.
Richard Louv
Single parents in particular may have trouble maintaining themselves as authority figures because of underlying guilt; they feel acontinuing sense that they have deprived their kids of the second parent, and so they tend to give in to the children’s requests, even when unreasonable.
Marge M. Kennedy
And empathy is narrow; it connects us to particular individuals, real or imagined, but is insensitive to numerical differences and statistical data.
Paul Bloom
There is a particular kind of pain, elation, loneliness and terror involved in this kind of madness… It will never end, for madness carves its own reality.
Kay Redfield Jamison
If all those around you believe some particular thing, you will soon be tempted to share in that belief.
Frank Herbert
I always tell young people in particular: Do not say that nothing’s changed when it comes to race in America, unless you lived through being a black man in the 1950s or ’60s or ’70s.
Barack Obama
I have now reached the happy age of 23. No, happy is not quite the right word. At this particular moment I am certainly not happy.
Eva Braun
New York is my home and I have a particular fondness for it. I think it’s a place where you can generate any kind of story wonderfully. But I also would be very happy to make a film in Paris or Rome.
Woody Allen
On religion in particular, the time appears to me to have come, when it is a duty of all who, being qualified in point of knowledge, have, on mature consideration, satisfied themselves that the current opinions are not only false, but hurtful, to make their dissent known.
John Stuart Mill
When, instead of merely associating some act with some situation in the animal way, we think the situation out, we have a set of particular feelings of its elements.
Edward Thorndike
Ancient Chinese custom if you were a guest in one of their homes and you admired some particular thing, they would wrap it up and present it to you as a gift. But isn’t that what life does.
Sterling W Sill
I have great respect for the people in intelligence and CIA. I don’t have a lot of respect for in particular one of the leaders. But that’s OK. But I have a lot of respect for the people in the CIA.
Donald Trump
I try to do things positive on my throat, but a couple things are negative like smoking and drinking heavily. I really don’t know. There’s no particular thing that I do that’s beneficial – it just kinda works. I guess I’d say warming up every day before a performance is the biggest thing.
Mitch Lucker
I think there are a whole host of things that are civil rights, and then there are other things – such as traditional marriage – that, I think, express a community’s concern and regard for a particular institution.
Barack Obama
Growing up in Asia in a particular time period – the ’50s and ’60s – I attended a Catholic missionary school where I was taught by nuns and where consciousness of the body was repressed. Yet at the same time, the female body was a highly visible and sensitive site.
Shirley Geok-lin Lim
Acceptance doesn’t mean that you’ve resigned yourself to live the rest of your life with a particular person, or in a particular situation. It just means that you won’t cause yourself emotional discomfort because of the way things are in this moment.
Ken Keyes Jr.
Every artist has a very particular sound and style.
Ali Shirazinia
Charlotte, Will’s being vexing.’ ‘And the sun has come up in the east,’ said Jem, to no one in particular.
Cassandra Clare
No statement about God is simply, literally true. God is far more than can be measured, described, defined in ordinary language, or pinned down to any particular happening.
David Jenkins
I welcome the role that people of faith play in building Britain’s future – and the Catholic communion in particular is to be congratulated for so often being the conscience of our country, for helping ‘the least of these’ even when bearing witness to the truth is hard or unpopular.
Gordon Brown
The House of Peers, throughout the war, Did nothing in particular, And did it very well: Yet Britain set the world ablaze In good King George’s glorious days!
Walter Raleigh
A club that plays in the Champions League is the goal, but I don’t have a particular one in mind.
Abdoulaye Doucoure
I’ve never heard that the sexual act requires any particular intelligence. From what I’ve observed, many stupid people are easily able to produce children.
Lisa Kleypas
A special ability means a heavy expenditure of energy in a particular direction, with a consequent drain from some other side of life.
Carl Jung
The thing I learned is that the work is getting done by people who dig in and work on a particular project: the people who spend 20 years sustaining a theater for black teenagers in Chicago; the people who reintroduce sticklebacks into Strawberry Creek in Berkeley and then wait patiently for the first egrets to show up.
Robert Hass
Particular nuisances (are) smoke, sewage odours, dust and similar aerosols, and vibrations.
Yehuda Levi
I try to convey what it feels like and sounds like and smells like and looks like inside of my particular skin, to move through the world as a black American woman in her mid-twenties.
Morgan Parker
Christians, in particular, realize that their responsibility within creation and their duty towards nature and the Creator are an essential part of their faith.
Pope John Paul II
Second, there are two problems with respect to mobile homes in particular. One is we obviously don’t want to put them in a flood plain, because if there’s another flood, you’re going to lose the mobile home.
Michael Chertoff
I don’t think that my particular religious convictions should be held against me in this campaign any more than the Prime Minister’s lack of convictions should be held against her.
Tony Abbott
Ambient Music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting.
Brian Eno
There are dangers in consensus: it could be an attempt to satisfy people holding no particular views about anything. … No great party can survive except on the basis of firm beliefs about what it wants to do.
Margaret Thatcher
Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Balanchine ballets, et al. don’t redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history.
Susan Sontag
You definitely do not do films for that particular reason. You do them for yourself, for your satisfaction of creating this thing with characters and watching these characters take on real life – that’s all you care about.
Clint Eastwood
Up to that time I never realized that I possessed any particular gift of discovery, but Lord Rayleigh, whom I always considered as an ideal man of science, had said so and if that was the case, I felt that I should concentrate on some big idea.
Nikola Tesla
I’ve always loved Ibanez guitars, and in particular 7 strings.
Paul Wardingham
Men of the greatest genius are not always the most prodigal of their encomiums. But then it is when their range of power is confined, and they have in fact little perception, except of their own particular kind of excellence.
William Hazlitt
Yeah, it’s more like playing what you think is appropriate for the moment, not forcing any particular style.
Charlie Hunter
People believe I am what they see Me as, rather than what they do not see. But I am the Great Unseen, not what I cause Myself to be in any particular moment. In a sense, I am what I am not. It is from the Am-notness that I come, and to it I always return.
Neale Donald Walsch
Unless a variety of opinions are laid before us, we have no opportunity of selection, but are bound of necessity to adopt the particular view which may have been brought forward.
I’m never sloppy, and I never wear jeans. I don’t work one look in particular, but it’s usually retro – I’m a flea-market freak. And detailed – I’m always very done, even at the gym.
Debi Mazar
What is demanded by God today is not a message to a particular people alone, a message is demanded for the whole of humanity who has suffered under the 6,000-year rule of Satan (or “Shaitan”); whose evil is not confined to himself but is spread to all the corners of the Earth.
Louis Farrakhan
Most theoretical work since the proposals of Hebb (1949) and Hayek (1952) has relied upon particular forms of dependent synaptic rules in which either pre- or postsynaptic change is contingent upon closely occurring events in both neurons taking part in the synapse.
Gerald Edelman
I’m an actor, in particular, that likes to have a mask or something that can help me distance myself from the character. Like the moustache or an accent.
Corey Stoll
I shall never forget Juliek. How could I forget this concert given before an audience of the dead and dying? Even today, when I hear that particular piece by Beethoven, my eyes close and out of the darkness emerges the pale and melancholy face of my Polish comrade bidding farewell to an audience of dying men.
Elie Wiesel
What happens whenever we convert a writer into a symbol is that we lose the writer himself in all his indefeasible singularity, his particular inimitable genius.
Alfred Kazin
The Christian faith can never be separated from the soil of sacred events, from the choice made by God, who wanted to speak to us, to become man, to die and rise again, in a particular place and at a particular time.
Pope Benedict XVI
When acting, I can wear another person’s clothes and act out the attractiveness of a particular character, which is very interesting for me. Singing is something I love as well.
Lee Seung-gi
That particular odyssey is now over. My mind is now at rest.
Andrew Wiles
Medicare in particular, will run out of money, and we will not be able to sustain that program.
Barack Obama
She wasn’t afraid of difficulties, what frightened her was having to choose one particular path. Choosing a path meant missing out on others. She had a whole life to live and she was always thinking that, in the future, she might regret the choices she made now.
Paulo Coelho
I’m not necessarily a good actor, but once people start saying you are, you are. And I know that that’s a truism, and there’s obviously nothing important in that particular statement, but it’s really about the fact that people create you as a good actor.
Alexander Siddig
Our delight in any particular study, art, or science rises and improves in proportion to the application which we bestow upon it. Thus, what was at first an exercise becomes at length an entertainment.
Joseph Addison
Character has more effect than anything else. Let a number of loud-talking men take up a particular question, and one man of character, of known integrity and beauty of soul, will outweigh them all in his influence.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Men go to sea, before they know the unhappiness of that way of life; and when they have come to know it, they cannot escape from it, because it is then too late to choose another profession; as indeed is generally the case with men, when they have once engaged in any particular way of life.
Samuel Johnson
Writers are interested in a diverse range of subjects, but prefer to move from field to field to satisfy intellectual curiosity, rather than devote an entire working life to one particular discipline.
Robert W. Bly
Each person has his or her own very particular history and after all, the unconscious is the most secret part of ourselves.
Simone de Beauvoir
Justification, in terms of the broadening of freedom, for any particular form of institution of property must be argued in terms of whether the losses caused by the restrictions imposed are greater or less than the gains derived from the elimination of costly conflict.
Kenneth E. Boulding
What’s scary is that Donald Trump has his own sordid history when it comes to discrimination – in housing, in particular.
Jumaane Williams
In brief, we have no explicit family policy but instead have a haphazard patchwork of institutions and programs designed mostly under crisis conditions, whether the crisis is national in scope (such as a recession ) or personal (such as a break-up of a particular family).
Kenneth Keniston
Nineties hip-hop in particular really shaped what became the common pop cultural language that we all speak.
Rick Famuyiwa
I am wiser than this man, for neither of us appears to know anything great and good; but he fancies he knows something, although he knows nothing; whereas I, as I do not know anything, so I do not fancy I do. In this trifling particular, then, I appear to be wiser than he, because I do not fancy I know what I do not know.
The Frank Matcham theaters in the West End in particular are incredible pieces of architecture.
Adrian Dunbar
We haven’t made any particular decision [on Maigret], I haven’t been asked if I want to carry on with it. All these things are a matter of whether you feel as though the idea is developing and whether it’s still interesting to play.
Rowan Atkinson
Our taste is too delicate and particular. It says nay to the poet’s work, but never yea to his hope.
Henry David Thoreau
Man’s naked form belongs to no particular moment in history; it is eternal, and can be looked upon with joy by the people of all ages.
Auguste Rodin
What is needed is the development in men of that particular type of skill which will enable them to make social use of knowledge already in their possession; enable them to apply simple, sometimes self-evident, truths to the guidance of their common life.
Norman Angell
You see, greatness for a state doesn’t require some huge monument for all to see. It is not a journey to a particular destination – but a commitment to follow a course of constant and never-ending improvement.
Sonny Perdue
I never chased after any particular school, never really had mentors; I really just did the work that was true to me.
Joyce Tenneson
I think that era of mechanically figuring out of how to bring a particular evocative image to the screen was a really important part of my education.
John Dykstra
I respected it. I submerged myself into it. So on a lot of days off I would go and fish with the fishermen and the families that ran the boats. I would go work the fields with farmers. I would go and talk with farmers about growing particular products for me.
Emeril Lagasse
When I watch students make particular decisions about language, structure, and form, it sharpens my own thinking and my own development as a writer.
Leni Zumas
If you look carefully you will see that there is one thing and only one thing that causes unhappiness. The name of that thing is attachment. What is an attachment? An emotional state of clinging caused by the belief that without some particular thing or some person you cannot be happy.
Anthony de Mello
Having spent the greater part of my life under a Communist dictatorship, I am very familiar with the Bolshevik mentality according to which an author in general, and an eminent author in particular, is always guilty, and must be punished accordingly.
Ismail Kadare
Despite one or two minority appeals our society is not outraged at man’s unremitting use of the animal world. Ecologists and environmentalists may talk of “ecological consciousness” or “environmental responsibility” but seldom, if ever, is this responsibility articulated towards other non-human species in particular.
Andrew Linzey
If you have the temerity to try to dramatize a theme that involves any particular social controversy currently extant. . . then you’re in deep trouble.
Rod Serling
Everyone is here on earth as an artist; to tell his particular story or sing her irreplaceable song; to leave a unique creative signature.
Leonard Wolf
There must be a realm of truth beyond political competence, that’s why there must be a separation of churches, but if religion is bad and a bad religion is one that gives an ultimate sanctity to some particular cause.
Reinhold Niebuhr
Systems are to be appreciated by their general effects, and not by particular exceptions.
James F. Cooper
The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern: every class is unfit to govern.
Lord Acton
Apparently, before we are born, each of us experiences a vision of what our life can be, complete with reflections on our parents and our tendencies to engage in particular control dramas, even how we might work through these dramas with these parents and go on to be prepared for what we want to accomplish.
James Redfield
As in any technological revolution, there will be winners and losers. On balance, everyone will come out ahead, although there will be particular companies that will not be able to cope with a new environment.
Ralph Merkle
Sense (for a particular art, science, human being, and so forth) is divided spirit; self-restraint is consequently the result of self-creation and self-destruction.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
No class of Americans, so far as I know, has ever objected . . . to any amount of governmental meddling if it appeared to benefit that particular class.
Carl L. Becker
They’re pretty particular about what they show. They certainly edit the scripts and have conversations with the writers about what they are and aren’t willing to portray. But the writers and the network are pretty much on the same page.
James Denton
People love advertising in particular but they hate advertising in general.
Cindy Gallop
Propaganda by censorship takes two forms: the selective control of information to favour a particular viewpoint, and the deliberate doctoring of information in order to create an impression different from that originally intended.
James A.C. Brown
Faith is a luxury for those who are able to ignore what the rest of us must see every day. Pessimism, distrust, and irony are the holy trinity of my religion, irony in particular.
Brando Skyhorse
I think direct political action, civil disobedience, in particular, is something to be taken very seriously.
Terry Tempest Williams
I do think it imperative that you recover from fear of rejection. Forgive me, but that is the sin of pride, and you must avoid that particular manifestation of the sin if you are to reach the goal . . . you hope for.
John Farrar
If something’s bugging my ass on any particular day, I’m probably going to say something about it, but I’m not going to go on a tirade.
Patterson Hood
All countries are particular and no models are perfect.
Mary Robinson
So often I wonder whether it is my right to capitalize, as I feel, so often, on the grief of others. But then I justify, in my own particular thoughts, by feeling that I can contribute a little to the understanding of what others are going through; then there is reason for doing it.
Mark Z. Danielewski
Because, we assume, these days, you just get in a car, you turn the key, and woosh, you’re up the road. Or even now, dare I say, you don’t turn a key; you get in a car and you’re up the road. And yet with this particular car, it was a five-step process to start it. So how do I let the reader know that?
Jacqueline Winspear
When it’s over I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
Mary Oliver
Obviously no language is innate. Take any kid from any race, bring them up in any culture and they will learn the language equally quickly. So no particular language is in the genes. But what might be in the genes is the ability to acquire language.
Steven Pinker
I’ve been blessed with some lovely scripts and a character that people could truly identify with. It’s one of those surprises in life that makes you think, ‘God was smiling on me that particular day.
Dwight Schultz
A good aspect of me is that I’m not too particular about things. A bad aspect is that I’m indecisive.
Akira Toriyama
In a small cathedral town where changes are few, there are always people who remember who used to live in a particular house, what happened to them there and afterwards, and so on.
James Hilton
A good director is not an expert in anything in particular. A good director just knows a little bit about everything.
Nicolas Winding Refn
Your informed, “no,” to a particular service allows another to offer their gifted and unreserved, “yes.”
Mary Anne Radmacher
[The cause of inaction in war] … is the imperfection of human perception and judgment which is more pronounced in war than anywhere else. We hardly know accurately our own situation at any particular moment while the enemy’s, which is concealed from us, must be deduced from very little evidence.
Carl von Clausewitz
The particular egoic patterns that you react to most strongly in others and misperceive as their identity tend to be the same patterns that are also in you, but that you are unable or unwilling to detect within yourself.
Eckhart Tolle
Since man’s highest mission on earth is to spiritualize everything, it is his excrement in particular that needs it most.
Salvador Dali
We don’t attempt to have any theme for a number of the anthology, or to have any particular sequence. We just put in things that we like, and then we try to alternate the prose and the poetry.
James Laughlin
There is a world-old controversy that crops up whenever women attempt to enter a new field. Is a woman fit for that work? It would seem that a woman’s success in any particular field would prove her fitness for that work, without regard to theories to the contrary.
Ruth Bancroft Law
I have a particular dislike of human pride. And if you think that you can engineer outcomes, that’s a manifestation of pride. Among other things, it’s impractical. It just doesn’t work. The world doesn’t work that way.
Mark Helprin
And I really do think that the difficulty of research makes it more real to you than punching a thing to find out how many men were killed at this particular action.
Shelby Foote
I am particular about the seating of the audience – also about how much money they pay – but most of all where they are seated. If I am going to sing something intimate, who am I going to sing it to?
Nina Simone
Wordsworth’s particular grace, his charisma, as theologians say, has been granted in equal measure to so very few men since time was–to Plato and who else?
The crucial thing is never what we do, but always what we do right after that. What matters is always the next step!
Robert Musil
I think that people find that’s a fresh look at a relationship between two best friends, between two soul mates, that people haven’t really seen in this particular way. So that’s definitely something that people are noticing.
Steve Zissis
After the discovery in 1918 of love letters revealing that Franklin was involved with Lucy Mercer: The bottom dropped out of my own particular world, I faced myself, my surroundings, my world, honestly for the first time.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Sport has the power to inspire and unite people. In Africa, soccer enjoys great popularity and has a particular place in the hearts of people.
Nelson Mandela
Most people don’t know what they spend in every single area, but they know they have a problem in particular areas.
Aaron Patzer
The concept of portraying evil and then destroying it – I know this is considered mainstream, but I think it is rotten. This idea that whenever something evil happens someone particular can be blamed and punished for it, in life and in politics is hopeless.
Hayao Miyazaki
He well knew his mind’s natural tendency to be endlessly on a thousand subjects at once, to flit from this to that and to the next thing to no particular purpose–indeed, he called it his “butterfly mind.
Eric Metaxas
Preservation of the environment, promotion of sustainable development and particular attention to climate change are matters of grave concern for the entire human family.
Pope Benedict XVI
Organized murder is war, and though we demonstrate against a particular war, the nuclear, or any other kind of war, we have never demonstrated against war.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
Everyone understands the European Union is a failure. It has not kept any of its promises – in particular about prosperity, security – and, worst of all, has put us under a guardianship.
Marine Le Pen
serene illumination, or just sitting, is not a technique, or a means to some resulting higher state of consciousness, or any particular state of being. Just sitting, one simply meets the immediate present. Desiring some flashy experience, or anything more or other than ‘this’ is mere worldly vanity and craving.
John Daido Loori
I’m really only capable to two emotions at this point: lust and hunger. I lost revenge a few years back, and even then, it was reserved only for ex-girlfriends and particular football games that caused me to lose a lot of money.
Jason Mulgrew
One has to devote oneself to a particular pursuit. To be successful at anything, you have to make a total commitment to it.
Donald Johanson
It’s a technical, fairly difficult job that has no particular political connotations, so I doubt there are any big campaign contributors dying to be on the Fed. And remember, it doesn’t pay very well, certainly by Republican standards.
Alice Rivlin
Italians in particular are seen as either benign and child-like (the sweet old nonna with her meatballs), menacing mobsters, or hyper-sexualized housewives and gigolos; the kind of nourishment I’m looking for doesn’t lie in any of these stereotypes.
Christopher Castellani
I have a particular disdain for Islamic extremism, and of course, in both ‘The Kite Runner’ and ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ that’s obvious.
Khaled Hosseini
But integration and equality are myths; they disguise a new segregation and a new equality…Every social order institutes its own program of separation or segregation. A particular faith and morality is given privileged status and all else is separated for progressive elimination.
R.J. Rushdoony
I think having a term for a condition that is prevalent is useful, because then people understand it as something not particular to them. It allows you not to ask the question, “What’s wrong with me?” and begin to ask the question, “What’s wrong with this place that I’m in?”
Claudia Rankine
I work to loud music – hard-rock stuff like AC/DC, Guns ‘n Roses, and Metallica have always been particular favorites – but for me the music is just another way of shutting the door.
Stephen King
He did nothing in particular, and did it very well.
W. S. Gilbert
When you’re making a film you start living with it, and I find myself sitting down and figuring out a sound or melody that would go with a film, or a particular period. It’s not brain surgery, you just kind of feel it along.
Clint Eastwood
I’m not scared of anything in particular, but I am motivated by a fear of failure as opposed to a need to succeed.
Heston Blumenthal
If you tried to make a show for every person’s particular interest, it’d be impossible because everyone is going to consume it the way they want to. All you can do is try to do an hour that makes sense for all.
Scott Van Pelt
The motions of the comets are exceedingly regular, and they observe the same laws as the motions of the planets, but they differ from the motions of vortices in every particular and are often contrary to them.
Isaac Newton
It has no denim-toned house paint. Levi makes what is essentially a commodity: blue jeans. Its ads may evoke rugged outdoorsmanship, but Levi hasn’t promoted any particular life style to sell other products.
Naomi Klein
The field of vision is comparable, for me, to the terrain of an archaeological dig. To see is to be on guard, to wait for what emerges from the background, without any name, without any particular interest: what was silent will speak, what is closed will open and will take on a voice.
Paul Virilio
If you look back today over the last 25 years, it is a fact that we have had a progressive degeneration of our intelligence community in general; in particular in the field of human intelligence.
Paul Bremer
Of course great hotels have always been social ideas, flawless mirrors to the particular societies they service.
Joan Didion
As a seer, I naturally can see the evolutionary potential of a being. But the potential will not necessarily be actualized. A particular being will not necessarily realize their full height.
Frederick Lenz
The light in Alaska in particular is so beautiful. So beautiful! Such incredible light.
Sebastiao Salgado
In order to know the true situation of a Planet at any particular time, the small set of balls are to be put each on its respective axis; then the winch to be turned round until each index points to the given time.
David Rittenhouse
I have seen landscapes . . . which, under a particular light, make me feel that at any moment a giant might raise his head over the next ridge.
C. S. Lewis
The artist must be blind to distinction between ‘recognized’ or ‘unrecognized’ conventions of form, deaf to the transitory teaching and demands of his particular age.
Wassily Kandinsky
The United States in particular and the West in general should be feeling a little embarrassed about all that lecturing we did to the Third World.
Paul Krugman
In the pop world, instead of saying I want to get an album by such and such a group, it’s I like this particular tune and that one I like less. I think it’s much better to get involved with an artist instead of riding up and down the works you like and disregard the works you don’t like.
Steve Reich
Sometimes the personality or just the particular process of a director can really affect your quality of life as a composer in terms of how much time you spend away from your family or the amount of time you spend doing the type of work that you maybe don’t consider as fun to do as other type of work.
Christophe Beck
There’s no way of telling why you want to do things beforehand. Something just grabs you. It might not grab you six months later, and it might not have grabbed you six months before, but at that particular moment it grabs you, so you jump on it.
Peter Morgan
Comedians who are 22 years old can certainly be funny and clever, and be capable of telling jokes – but are they talking about their favorite TV shows, or a particular brand of shampoo?
Rob Delaney
Orientals, and the Malays in particular, are a sensitive people: delicacy of sentiment is predominant with them.
Jose Rizal
Any time one seeks to produce for a larger public one inevitably has to drop material that would only be understood by a particular group.
Tim Parks
Every individual is a unique manifestation of the Whole, as every branch is a particular outreaching of the tree.
Alan Watts
My particular focus at the moment is on the development of genetic algorithms and neural networks that work together to create computer architectural systems.
Frederick Lenz
If a city has a 30% Negro population, then it is logical to assume that Negroes should have at least 30% of the jobs in any particular company, and jobs in all categories rather than only in menial areas.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Motherhood, in the sense of an intense, reciprocal relationship with a particular child, or children, is one part of female process; it is not an identity for all time.
Adrienne Rich
Love without end, hath no end, says the Spaniard: (meaning, if it were not begun on particular ends, it would last).
George Herbert
I started hitching about the country when I was 16 or 17 years old. I found the music that was played around the country – Irish music – had a particular resonance.
Brendan Gleeson
I don’t diet, I don’t do fads, I’ve just decided to not eat carbs. So no more bread and pasta for the month. I can’t live without chocolate, though. I’ve always got a bar in my handbag. It has to be 72%. Any less and it’s too sweet, any more and it’s inedible. Like I said, I’m very particular.
Nancy Meyers
Let us not be tempted by those who try to find the unique qualities in a particular group. In this case, among South Africa indigenous people, it reflected what has been evidenced throughout the world.
Nelson Mandela
Anybody can decide if they have got the money to fight a case if they don’t like a particular thing, and they complain to the watch committee, local council or whatever.
Timothy West
I don’t want to limit myself to a genre, language or a particular industry. I will do anything interesting that comes to me.
Sourabh Raj Jain
Many people say that I don’t know how to draw because I don’t draw particular forms. When will they understand that execution, drawing and color (in other words, style) must be in harmony with the poem?
Paul Gauguin
After all, if there is no class stratification in a society, it follows that there is no state, because the state arose as an instrument to be used by a particular class to control the rest of society in its own interests.
Walter Rodney
Our opinions partake, more or less, of the prejudices of our class, party, or sect. We are all largely pledged, through interest, affection, or passion, to particular classes of opinion, and the strength of efforts to get released from these pledges, is the measure of our advancement.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Good-breeding is not confined to externals, much less to any particular dress or attitude of the body; it is the art of pleasing, or contributing as much as possible to the ease and happiness of those with whom you converse.
Henry Fielding
I had lots of posters on my bedroom wall of players like Zico, many Brazilian and Italian players, not many players in particular but I loved football so much and I especially loved skilful players.
Emmanuel Petit
I don’t have any particular plans in mind. What I see is that you can become so focused on the idea of running that winning becomes your motivation, as opposed to what you stand for being your motivation.
Zephyr Teachout
Certainly there is no contending against the Will of God; but still there is some difficulty in ascertaining, and applying it, to particular cases.
Abraham Lincoln
Gates is the ultimate programming machine. He believes everything can be defined, examined, reduced to essentials, and rearranged into a logical sequence that will achieve a particular goal.
Stewart Alsop
