C. J. McCollum
It’s silly to work hard the whole week and then spoil it by not preparing properly before the game.
Arsene Wenger
I worked as a draftsman for the Department of Environmental Protection, and as a teacher, in N.Y.C.; at a big bank and a small ad agency, a tiny law firm and a few giant ones; as a cashier and a dishwasher; preparing deli sandwiches and stringing tennis racquets and pruning evergreens into conical Christmas-tree shapes.
Chris Pavone
The work I’ve been putting in, I’ve kind of just been preparing myself for every situation. I’ve been doing a lot of off-the-ball shooting, catch-and-shoot shots. And preparing myself to play on the ball as well.
Caris LeVert
When I was a child, my December weekends were spent making cards, decorating the tree, hanging the wreath and preparing brandy butter and peppermint creams.
Pippa Middleton
If atomic bombs are to be added as new weapons to the arsenals of a warring world, or to the arsenals of nations preparing for war, then the time will come when mankind will curse the names of Los Alamos and of Hiroshima.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations.
Yasser Arafat
Battling is therapeutic for Hip Hop, but you can’t take it serious. I mean, you got to take it because when you’re preparing your material for your opponent but when it affects your heart or when you let it get too personal… you got to have fun with it.
I did the best that I could in preparing for Georges, knowing what I knew. Some things worked, and some things didn’t.
Carlos Condit
When I came back on the rink in 2012, I set a goal of wrapping up my career well rather than just winning medals. I’m not preparing for any special skills for Sochi because I don’t feel like they are necessary.
Kim Yuna
I have to finish ‘Behen Hogi Terim’ and then get right into that zone to seriously start preparing for it. It is a huge responsibility to play Netaji.
Rajkummar Rao
I co-pastor now, so I preach six months, then another guy preaches six months. So that’s really why I’m preparing for January, because I’ll finish in June; then I’ll be writing and doing other projects for the rest of the year.
Max Lucado
If we have reason to believe someone is preparing an attack against the U.S., has developed that capability, harbours those aspirations, then I think the U.S. is justified in dealing with that, if necessary, by military force.
Dick Cheney
Having today’s technology available to our students is crucial in preparing our future workforce.
Mike Parson
My understanding is that what was provided was general order of battle information, not operational intelligence. I certainly have no knowledge of US participation in preparing battle and strike packages and doubt strongly that that occurred.
Frank Carlucci
Music is a huge part of my life when I am on the road, working out, or preparing for a game. It is something I always go back to, and it is something that motivates me. It gets me hype before a game.
Giannis Antetokounmpo
Kids who are in school just visit life sometimes, and then they have to stop to do homework or go to sleep early or get to school on time. They’re constantly reminded they are preparing ‘for real life,’ while being isolated from it.
Sandra Dodd
I’ve gotten very good at scheduling my life, scheduling the scene and preparing myself for knowing, saving the energy, consuming the energy, knowing when to go for it and having the available reserves to be able to do that. You have to think about that, because it’s endurance.
Tom Cruise
Each game we approach like a final. Today it was the opening game at home, we won and showed outstanding football qualities. We will be preparing for the next game the same way.
Andriy Shevchenko
Tom Cotton voted against preparing America for pandemics like Ebola.
Mark Pryor
My work is my passion so it’s impossible to imagine doing all the things I love if I couldn’t see – riding my bike, reading an autocue or preparing dishes.
Dave Myers
He would see civilization in danger of perishing under the oppression of a gigantic paradox: he would see multitudes of people starving in the midst of plenty, and nations preparing for war although pledged to peace.
Arthur Henderson
Prior to 1980, people used to dictate to a secretary for preparing written documents and that person would then punch keys on a typewriter. I was inspired to invent a medium for doing this work by engaging just one person.
Shiva Ayyadurai
Sometimes God allows us to be tested because He’s preparing us for promotion.
Joyce Meyer
In these early games you’re focused on your performance. Just coming out and playing hard. There’s not a lot you can do in terms of preparing and in terms of scouting.
Dom Starsia
It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for war.
John F. Kennedy
Mexico attacked United States troops in 1846 because they had moved into disputed border territory; President James Polk used this as a convenient casus belli, but he was preparing a war message for Congress even before the attack.
Max Boot
It is a tremendous honor to be a No. 2 seed, and to get to play so close to home in Dayton. It is an incredible feeling, and it will be interesting to start preparing. But right now we need some rest and then we’ll get our guys going for the NCAA Tournament.
Thad Matta
My parents didn’t believe in luck. They believed in hard work and in preparing me to take advantage of opportunity. Like many parents, they taught me to be generous but never to depend on the generosity of others.
Naveen Jain
I needed to do my current job well, keep preparing, and wait on God’s timing. I needed to trust His leadership rather than try to force an outcome I wanted.
Tony Dungy
I’m an expert cook when it comes to preparing the quail, ducks, geese and wild turkeys that I hunt on the farm.
Jimmy Carter
Becoming food savvy is one thing, but it’s amazing how fast savvy turns to snooty, and snooty leaves you preparing three-hour meals that break your budget and that the kids won’t even eat.
Jeffrey Kluger
Preparing for death is one of the most empowering things you can do. Thinking about death clarifies your life.
Candy Chang
Preparing for a short-notice fight is dangerous, it doesn’t even matter who you are preparing for. Short-notice fights suck.
Tony Ferguson
I feel like I’ve been playing Spider-Man my whole life. He’s a character I’ve been pretending to be in my bedroom since I was a kid – so I’ve been preparing for this forever, I think.
Tom Holland
I had to learn that slower is faster If you practice every day with patience and correctness, you will get there. It’s like preparing for a jump. You can’t rush. You must summon the appropriate energy.
Edward Villella
Our schools are not geared toward building, preparing kids for the modern economy.
Davis Guggenheim
After my 12th standard, I started preparing for the film industry. I’ve had no formal acting training.
Tiger Shroff
I do beseech you to direct your efforts more to preparing youth for the path and less to preparing the path for the youth.
Ben Lindsey
The path to knowledge is a forced one. In order to learn, we must be pushed. On the path of knowledge we are always fighting something, avoiding something, preparing for something; and that something is always inexplicable, greater and more powerful than us.
Carlos Castaneda
Alpinism means you go by yourself with your own responsibility, knowing that you could die. But Everest now is more like ski tourism: preparing the piste, helping people go up, setting oxygen bottles near the summit.
Reinhold Messner
Freedom is not nurtured by nations preparing for war.
William Appleman Williams
I think writing, or any form of art-making, is a way to prepare for not being here. Not that we can. No amount of preparing can really ready us, in a meaningful way, for the great void that awaits us all.
Laura van den Berg
I started preparing meals for my family when I was 12 because both of my parents worked, but I didn’t know that it was something I could make a career out of until I had my daughter and realized there were people out there who were interested in learning how to prepare a quick meal.
Ayesha Curry
After a couple of years in a professional setting, you’ll get used to dressing presentably, preparing for meetings, speaking appropriately, showing up on time, writing professional correspondence, etc.
Andrew Yang
Mosley is bigger than me. He’s fast and his hand speed is still there. He’s faster than most of my opponents. He’s also preparing hard and he’s also good, so we never underestimate our opponent.
Manny Pacquiao
If Hillary can’t win the nomination – and it’s clearly very, very hard for her – she’s basically a stalking horse for McCain. She’s preparing the demographic ground for McCain, by getting white working-class Democrats used to (if you will) not voting for Obama.
Rich Lowry
You want be young and have fun, that’s great. But while you’re having fun, someone you don’t see is studying and preparing. You might end up working for that person. No one wants to hear that! But I try to tell young people: You want to be the one signing the front of the check, not the back.
Chris Gardner
All great work is preparing yourself for the accident to happen.
Sidney Lumet
We are now preparing for the reform of the yuan’s exchange rate system. For such reforms to take place, we need good economic conditions… and we need to do it under tight control.
Wu Yi
Luck usually visits me at 2 am on a cold morning when, red-eyed and bone-weary, I am pouring over law books preparing a case. It never visits me when I am at the cinema, on a golf course or reclining in an easy chair.
Louis Nizer
Playing black, I put great stake in the Ruy Lopez: I liked it, feel it, and understand it; in matches with Hjartarson and Timman it served me well. – on preparing for World Championship versus Garry Kasparov
Anatoly Karpov
We can’t be fighting the last war. We have to be preparing to fight the new war.

God is preparing his heroes; and when the opportunity comes, he can fit them into their places in a moment, and the world will wonder where they came from.
A. B. Simpson
I was preparing to get into one of the IITs when I was in school. I was a good student.
Rhea Chakraborty
A lot of people aren’t saving enough. And incidentally, people are living longer now, and health care is improving. You might end up retired for 30 years – people are not really preparing for that.
Robert J. Shiller
What I tell my kids is, ‘I’m preparing you for college and for life. So, having independence, knowing how to set your own boundaries, figuring out how to make that balance. We still have screen-time rules.’
Michelle Obama
When you train your employees to be risk averse, then you’re preparing your whole company to be reward challenged.
Morgan Spurlock
From my earliest memory, times of crisis seemed to end up with women in the kitchen preparing food for men.
Barbara Kingsolver
Our education system is not preparing young people for the world they will face.
Campbell Brown
How is it that we do not die of love in seeing that God Himself could do no more than shed His divine blood for us drop by drop? When as man He was preparing for death, He made Himself our food in order to give us life. God becomes food, bread for his creatures. Is this not enough to make us die of love?
Teresa of Avila
We were preparing not Peace only, but Eternal Peace. There was about us the halo of some divine mission. We must be alert, stern, righteous and ascetic. For we were bent on doing great, permanent and noble things.
Harold Nicolson
Sometimes you can win, and you are preparing to disrupt yourself. Sometimes you don’t win, but you are preparing yourself to be better.

Billy Graham
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
John Wooden
She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘why?,’ and she said, ‘Because I’m so profoundly happy, Dr. Rasul. Happiness like this is frightening.’ I asked her why and she said, ‘They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.
Khaled Hosseini
Everything I was doing when I didn’t have deals was preparing me for when I did
Tim Gordon
While I am usually in despair when a movie abandons its plot for a third act given over entirely to action, I have no problem with the way Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets ends, because it has been pointing toward this ending, hinting about it, preparing us for it, all the way through. What a glorious movie.
Roger Ebert
Nobody hands you excellence on a silver platter. You earn it through planning, preparing, and persisting in the face of all obstacles.
Terry Orlick
Usually I love preparing. It’s really the time I prefer, because it’s a time of reflection and of possibility of growth – to let it cook inside.
Juliette Binoche
Preparing food is not just about yourself and others. It is about everything!
Shunryu Suzuki
Religious teaching in the past has dealt mainly with preparing people for the next world. This is of course of the utmost importance, but we should not allow it to blind us to the fact that there is a Power that can make this life perfect also.
Henry Thomas Hamblin
Mr. Trump has evolved to the point where he understands that a grass-roots strategy must be supplemented with paid advertising to be able to combat the negative ads that will run against him – and he is prepared or preparing to spend what it takes to make sure his message gets to the voters.
Corey Lewandowski
There are plenty of politically motivated pretenders out there preparing to punk you, and you better be on your toes.
Michael Caputo

Tara Westover
Expect the best, Prepare for the worst.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah
In the two years of preparing material for shows, I realized there are elements that are definitely going to work live, but might not be the most exciting thing to put on a record. And there’s stuff that I really love but it falls flat live.
Girl Talk
I’m preparing for a multimedia theater piece, Airport Music, that’s coming up in New York City.
Jessica Hagedorn
I remember preparing for my audition on the plane to L.A. — I was drawing all these weird vampire pictures and I am sure the gorgeous ladynext to me thought I was very odd.
Lucy Fry
I love chicken. But, like a lot of chefs and cooks, I get tired of preparing it the same way.
Marcus Samuelsson

Paul Allen
You’re in the gym eight hours a day; you’re not preparing for cameras and running around and doing tour stops and making acting appearances.
McKayla Maroney
One thing is all things. To resolve one matter, one must resolve all matters. Changing one thing changes all things. Once I made the decision to sow rice in the fall, I found that I could also stop transplanting, and plowing, and applying chemical fertilizers, and preparing compost, and spraying pesticides.
Masanobu Fukuoka
Great companies need to reinvent themselves. We can do that: we can stay relevant, we can grow, and we can stay successful. It takes courage, but it’s a path we’ve been preparing for carefully.
Frans van Houten
Ordinary people seem not to realize that those who really apply themselves in the right way to philosophy are directly and of their own accord preparing themselves for dying and death.
God has been preparing me for what God had prepared for me.
Johnny Hunt
I spent the first twenty years of my writing career preparing for the mystery genre, which is my favorite literary form.
Sue Grafton
A man who is eating or lying with his wife or preparing to go to sleep in humility, thankfulness and temperance, is, by Christian standards, in an infinitely higher state than one who is listening to Bach or reading Plato in a state of pride.
C. S. Lewis
Preparing for the worst is an activity I have taken up since I turned thirty-five, and the worst actually began to happen.
Delia Ephron
Christ’s public life extended only over eighteen months, and for this he had silently been preparing himself for thirty – two years.

Les Miles
This year is very difficult for me to run after I after I lose my fiancee. I’m not preparing very well. I have sadness in my heart.
Kenenisa Bekele
Allow your dreams a place in your prayers and plans. God-given dreams can help you move into the future He is preparing for you.

Champ Bailey
I spend my days preparing for life, not preparing for death.
Mumia Abu-Jamal
Because of Christ, even our catastrophes have purpose. God is preparing our character for the time when we will see Him face to face.
Kenneth Boa
I’m a visual thinker. Research tells us that only 20 per cent of people think visually. So what about the other 80 per cent? Don’t they think in pictures? I mean if you imagine washing and preparing potatoes you visualise the process, right?
Douglas Coupland
I used to hurt so badly that I’d ask God why, what have I done to deserve any of this? I feel now He was preparing me for this, for the future. That’s the way I see it.
Eden Phillpotts
I do endless chopping and preparing things. I really find that relaxing. I do a lot of thinking as I am chopping and cooking.
Kate Winslet
When preparing for a concert, I do lots of training. I work with a choreographer to create great moves and then I have to keep my voice strong with lessons.
Miley Cyrus
I would say auditioning was my real training ground. The technical aspects – like hitting marks and pacing yourself and preparing and dealing with the downtime – the first recurring role I had on 24 was probably the way I learned that stuff.
Zachary Quinto
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s ‘Little House’ series is a national treasure, beloved by generations. But what I love most is the peek it provides into the planting, harvesting, hunting, and preparing of the foods that America’s settler families ate in the late 1800s.
Isabel Gillies
I love the draft process. I love the regular season. I love preparing for the games. I just love football.

Shalane Flanagan
I like that talented chefs are able to keep coming up with new ways of preparing food – it really is an art form.
Lisa Hanawalt
What we need in this country is a general improvement in eating. We have the best raw materials in the world, both quantitatively and qualitatively, but most of them are ruined in the process of preparing them for the table.
H. L. Mencken
The minute you step off that podium is the minute you start preparing for the next world championship. That’s kind of how I work. You celebrate for a brief moment, then you move on.
Abby Wambach
And the Institute sent me a little film footage of Kinsey himself preparing to do an interview for television to talk about his work, so that was quite valuable for me.
Liam Neeson
Preparing for a stunt is like training for a sporting event.
Jean-Paul Belmondo
We didn’t know that Mother had gone through a passionate love affair or that Father suffered from severe depression. Mother was preparing to break out of her marriage, Father threatening to take his own life.
Ingmar Bergman
Nature has the deep cunning which hides itself under the appearance of openness, so that simple people think they can see through her quite well, and all the while she is secretly preparing a refutation of their confident prophecies.
George Eliot
Now that I look back, it seems to me that in all that deep darkness a miracle was preparing. So I am right to remember it as a blessed time, and myself as waiting in confidence, even if I had no idea what i was waiting for.
Marilynne Robinson
And war is wonderful, isn’t it? For it’s war, isn’t it, that the Americans have been preparing for and are preparing for this way step by step. In order to defend this senseless manufacture from all competition that could not fail to arise on all sides.
Antonin Artaud
Our responsibility is not simply shielding those we care for from adversity but preparing them to meet it well.
Aimee Mullins
The rise of ISIS is a result of – Obama and Clinton making a decision to pull our troops out without preparing Iraq is a colossal mistake.
Paul Manafort
Never praise a sister to a sister, in the hope of your compliments reaching the proper ears, and so preparing the way for you later on. Sisters are women first, and sisters afterwards; and you will find that you do yourself harm.
Rudyard Kipling
I do a pretty good job preparing myself. That’s something I take pride in.
Luke Kuechly
The United States contributes to peace in both by serving as a buffer between and among regional powers that, while not preparing for armed conflict, do not fully trust one another.
Michael Mandelbaum
There is always a part of my mind that is preparing for the worst, and another part of my mind that believes if I prepare enough for it, the worst won’t happen.
Kay Redfield Jamison
We don’t experience the world fully unless we are willing to give everything away. Samaya means not holding anything back, not preparing our escape route, not looking for alternatives, not thinking that there is ample time to do things later
Pema Chodron
As a batter you are generally playing a mental game most of the time and having too long to prepare can work against you – you can almost fry yourself out before a Test match or feel slightly fatigued two games in because you have spent too long preparing.
Joe Root
I am a fitness freak, and I do not celebrate any festivity in a grand way during the months of December and January because I am busy preparing for my marathon.

I liken myself to someone who built the house he will live in one day and is preparing to furnish it.
Elie Saab
A whole generation of Americans will retire in poverty instead of prosperity, because they simply are not preparing for retirement now.
Scott D. Cook
If people tell you that
you should live your life preparing for the future, do not believe
them. Real Life is found only in the present.
Leo Tolstoy

Bill Rodgers
Well, any time Im preparing for a performance or even a rehearsal, its as if in a way, like any other athletes, these are muscles that support the vocal cords which are just I believe cartilage. It demands a kind of constant warming up and a constant feeling of where is the voice today.
Renee Fleming
One thing that’s nice about writing a book about food is – unless it’s from a specific place – you can revisit things easily by preparing the dish. The sensory detail that comes from interacting with that is something that can be recreated pretty easily.
Michelle Zauner
I don’t feel anything right now. I am just preparing, that’s it.
Irina Slutskaya
. . . planning a brilliant menu and preparing it beautifully doesn’t guarantee a recipe for success.
Kathy Lette
Many Americans genuinely fear that God is preparing to remove his hand of protection and blessing from our country, or perhaps already has.
Joel C. Rosenberg
My first semester of college, I’m going to sociology and English and psychology, and all I cared about was getting home and preparing for whatever audition I had.
Dylan O’Brien
We know that there are significant health benefits from consuming more fruits and vegetables, and that’s an opportunity for us to sort of move away from some of the meals that we’ve been preparing in the past.
Tom Vilsack
God is not just saving individuals and preparing them for heaven; rather, He is creating a people among whom He can live and who in their life together will reproduce God’s life and character.
Gordon Fee
George B. Cortelyou
People on this planet are currently preparing to blow themselves up in ultimate thermonuclear wars. We are living among beings whose state of mind is destruction.
Frederick Lenz
So as I was growing up, my father was always in the middle of making a film or preparing a film. It was a full-time, all-consuming type of operation.
Barbara Broccoli
Enjoyment is an art and a skill for which we have little talent or energy… your entire education has has deprived you of this capacity because it was preparing you for the future, instead of showing you how to be alive now.
Alan Watts
All of the products I take help me feel like I’m getting the maximum amount out of my workouts and out of my practice work. They’re a big part of preparing and recovering each week.

Winston Churchill
I have an idea that the phrase weaker sex was coined by some woman to disarm some man she was preparing to overwhelm.
Ogden Nash
It feels like he’s marking me. Like he’s preparing me for something monumental. That could both change and ruin my life.
Katy Evans
Risk is relative. And relative to the imminent planetary ‘game over’ neon sign that’s starting to flicker above our children’s heads, just as they are preparing for a full life ahead… now that’s what you call risk!
Dave Hampton
Be a mentor to others. Your most important legacy is preparing new leaders to carry on your goals.
Ellen Sauerbrey
When I’m not preparing for a fight, I like to chill, go to the cinema and socialise with my mates.
James DeGale
The events and prophecies of our time are preparing us for the Savior’s Second Coming.
Robert D. Hales
We’re all products of what we want to project to the world. Even people who don’t spend any time, or think they don’t, on preparing themselves for the world out there – I think that ultimately they have for their whole lives groomed themselves to be a certain way, to present a face to the world.
Cindy Sherman
Once I’m at the training ground, I’m focused, preparing for the next game.
Jack Wilshere
People should relate to nature as birds do. Birds don’t run around carefully preparing fields, planting seeds, and harvesting food. They don’t create anything . . . they just receive what is there for them with a humble and grateful heart.
Masanobu Fukuoka
When Richard M. Nixon resigned and Ford became the 38th president of the United States, the Watergate Special Prosecutor’s Office, of which I was a member, was preparing for the criminal trials of Nixon’s top aides – H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and John Mitchell.
Richard Ben-Veniste
Many feel the terms “Sabbath day” and “play day” are synonymous. . . . But I . . . know that remembering to keep the Sabbath day holy is one of the most important commandments we can observe in preparing us to be the recipients of the whisperings of the Spirit.
H. David Burton
I really enjoy everything about this profession. From the training I do preparing for my matches, to the time I spend in the dressing room getting ready, right up until I make my entrance to the ring and the final bell rings.
Thousands of mercenaries, who have trained in camps on the territory of Chechnya as well as come in from abroad, are actually preparing to impose extremist ideas on the whole world.
Boris Yeltsin
Looking at the original lyrics [of “A Song For You” ] as I was preparing it, I thought, “Wow! I feel like it was written for me.” That’s what a great song does. You don’t have to do a lot of homework. You can just say the words and it springs to life.
Cheyenne Jackson
Tamil for me is my cousin Esha. I even told her that I was preparing to play a Tamilian and asked her if she could teach me the language.
Abhay Deol
What I tell my kids is, I’m preparing you for college and for life. So, having independence, knowing how to set your own boundaries, figuring out how to make that balance. We still have screen time rules.

We must be careful not to discourage our twelve-year-olds by making them waste the best years of their lives preparing for examinations.
Freeman Dyson
Your past does not determine who you are. Your past prepares you for who you are to become.
Joel Osteen
We spend so much of our early lives trying to figure out who we really are. And we spend the rest of our lives preparing ourselves to let it go.
John Cameron Mitchell
When you’re doing an out-and-out comedy, the notion of preparing for a character – I hope I don’t reveal too much of myself here – but, uh, no, I’m not doing anything.
Will Ferrell
What if things happened to you—special, magic things—because you’d been preparing for them?
Jennifer McMahon
I believe that our Great Maker is preparing the world, in His own good time, to become one nation, speaking one language, and when armies and navies will be no longer required.
Ulysses S. Grant
You may be going through things right now that are painfully preparing you for some precious service to Jesus and to his people. When a person strikes rock bottom with a sense of nothingness or helplessness, he may find that he has struck the Rock of Ages
John Piper
God is always at work, though we cannot see it, preparing people he has chosen for leadership. When the crisis comes, God fits His appointee into the place ordained for him.
J. Oswald Sanders
In the late 1950s, self-esteem hadn’t yet been invented. High schools saw their sole mission as preparing students thoroughly for academic work.
Edith Pearlman
When the Holy Spirit calls your to fast, He is preparing you for what is ahead.
Jentezen Franklin
At an age when most youngsters are preparing for their GCSEs, I was suddenly a jet-setter, briefly the toast of Hollywood and London’s West End. My immature wishes and naive opinions were treated with respect.
Jack Wild
A whole set of values comes with fast food: Everything should be fast, cheap and easy; there’s always more where that came from; there are no seasons; you shouldn’t be paid very much for preparing food. It’s uniformity and a lack of connection.
Alice Waters
My hope is that this life is not all there is. This life is like preparation for what is coming next, and what is coming next is something so glorious that the Bible says minds can’t conceive it, eye has never seen, your imagination could never even enter into all that God is preparing for those who love him.
Anne Graham Lotz
Instead of joyfully looking forward to my birth, my mother began systematically preparing for her own death. She was fatalistic.
Lorna Luft
The fine art of preparing sushi is something that you watch and learn.
Nobu Matsuhisa
Courage – you develop courage by doing small things like just as if you wouldn’t want to pick up a 100-pound weight without preparing yourself.
Maya Angelou
A friend of mine had this great theory about the Teletubbies, that it’s preparing us for being mindless. And getting us ready for living in an underground world. That’s why the scenery is so flat.
Rachel McAdams
I love food and am very good at improvising when preparing it – it’s a really creative experience for me.
Autumn Reeser
To point the finger at one guy, at each other or at the coaches, won’t do any good. It’s not supposed to be the coach. It’s our team. The coaches can do a phenomenal job preparing you, but it has to come from within.
B. J. Armstrong
I am a person who dreads any kind of public exposure and any kind of public event. I spend all day, if I have to do a reading, preparing.
Junot Diaz
I run on the road long before I dance under the lights.
Muhammad Ali
I didn’t know how to go about preparing for the part of someone who can’t remember who he is. The frustration angle is written in, but there’s also this incredible passive state.
Tom Berenger
We want Florida to be first for jobs, and we must have a skilled workforce to reach that goal. By investing in science, technology, engineering and math education, we are ensuring our students are prepared for the jobs of the future. Our teachers are essential to preparing our students.
Rick Scott
The ego mind both professes its desire for love and does everything possible to repel it, or if it gets here anyway, to sabotage it. That is why dealing with issues like control, anger, and neediness is the most important work in preparing ourselves for love.
Marianne Williamson
The challenge of education is not to prepare a person for success, but to prepare him for failure.
James Stockdale
As the first member of my immediate family to graduate from college, I understand the importance access to high quality education plays in preparing our children to learn and compete in a competitive, global workforce.
Elise Stefanik
My “thinking” time was devoted mainly to activities that were essentially clerical or mechanical: searching, calculating, plotting, transforming, determining the logical or dynamic consequences of a set of assumptions or hypotheses, preparing the way for a decision or an insight.
J. C. R. Licklider
A number of rare or newly experienced foods have been claimed to be aphrodisiacs. At one time this quality was even ascribed to the tomato. Reflect on that when you are next preparing the family salad.
Jane Grigson
Turn the preparing of food into a communal affair by enlisting others to help with the chopping, grating, stirring, simmering, tasting and seasoning. When the cooking is finished, eat together round the table with the electronic gadgets switched off so you can savor the food and let the conversation flow.
Carl Honore
In order to have good fried chicken, you should wash and season the bird the morning you’re preparing it for dinner. Don’t wait and do it right before you start cooking. Throw it in the refrigerator, seasoned, that morning, and give it a chance to soak up all the salt and pepper and goodness.
Paula Deen
I can sit down and watch the Discovery channel and see something on nuclear submarines that gets me thinking about torpedoes and darts . Or I can see a documentary about someone preparing for a big challenge and I’ll use the same techniques. You always need to aim to get better.
Phil Taylor
We secured peace for our country for one and a half years, as well as an opportunity of preparing our forces for defense if fascist Germany risked attacking our country in defiance of the pact. This was a definite gain to our country and a loss for fascist Germany.
Joseph Stalin
When the safety of America is threatened, we will spend any amount of money. The real safety of our nation is preparing this next generation so that they can take our place [in] thinking and technology and democracy.
Geoffrey Canada
The notion that you would initiate a new product without preparing the way by persuasion and advertising and salesmanship is fantastic. It’s an integral part of the system.
John Kenneth Galbraith
When you’re pregnant, you go out and buy every single book; you have this stack of books on your nightstand, but there was nothing that was preparing me for anything even remotely resembling what my life was going to look like.
Jenna McCarthy
Interviewing someone is very similar to preparing a character, isn’t it? You’re just asking questions: ‘Who is this person? Why did they make that choice? Why are they doing that?’ You’re being Sherlock Holmes.
Felicity Jones
I guess the hardest thing about preparing for an album release was the fact that we had a lot more responsibility in creating a full-length, compared to a single.
Apple is a military-like command-and-control organization where people lower down in the organization manage up. They are constantly preparing their boss who may be preparing their boss and their boss for a presentation to the CEO or to the executive team.
Adam Lashinsky
You need always to balance your tasks at the racetrack and at the factory. Still the factory is important where we are developing the car, preparing the cars.
Mattia Binotto
Play permits the child to resolve in symbolic form unsolved problems of the past and to cope directly or symbolically with present concerns. It is also his most significant tool for preparing himself for the future and its tasks.
Bruno Bettelheim
We must do everything we can to help our service members and veterans transition into civilian life once they return home, and that means preparing them for the tough job market.
Kirsten Gillibrand
In Winter the bare boughs that seem to sleep Work covertly, preparing for their Spring.
Preparing our city to achieve its destiny will require strong leadership.
Thomas Menino
It was a good experience for me to be in the same camp as Minto when he was preparing for Shane Cameron, to see the weaknesses and strengths he brings.
Joseph Parker
Some think that by preparing to deal with crises you make them more likely. I think the wiser judgment is the contrary. In this area at least, if you want peace or stability, it’s better to prepare for war or instability
Timothy Geithner
When preparing for auditions, I have no rituals. I just try to be as prepared as possible.
Dante Basco
Should Disappointment, parent of Despair, Strive for her son to seize my careless heart; When, like a cloud, he sits upon the air, Preparing on his spell-bound prey to dart: Chase him away, sweet Hope, with visage bright, And fright him as the morning frightens night!
John Keats
God is not preparing the Blessing for YOU, He is preparing YOU for the Blessing
T. D. Jakes
Rations were scarcely issued, and the men about preparing supper, when rumors that the enemy had been encountered that day near Gettysburg absorbed every other interest, and very soon orders came to march forthwith to Gettysburg.
The hope we have in Christ is an absolute certainty. We can be sure that the place Christ is preparing for us will be ready when we arrive, because with Him nothing is left to chance. Everything He promised He will deliver.
Billy Graham
Christmas was close at hand, in all his bluff and hearty honesty; it was the season of hospitality, merriment, and open-heartedness; the old year was preparing, like an ancient philosopher, to call his friends around him, and amidst the sound of feasting and revelry to pass gently and calmly away.
Charles Dickens
Everyone has their own way of preparing.
Marco Verratti
In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
It is not fair to think that when students transit through a K-12 system that is not preparing them for beyond, that somehow we are going to wave a magic wand and things are going to be perfect for them at the higher-ed level.
Betsy DeVos
Memorial Day will be celebrated … by the usual betrayal of the dead, by the hypocritical patriotism of the politicians and contractors preparing for more wars, more graves to receive more flowers on future Memorial Days. The memory of the dead deserves a different dedication. To peace, to defiance of governments.
Howard Zinn
I’ve never been much of a computer guy at least in terms of playing with computers. Actually until I was about 11 I didn’t use a computer for preparing for games at all. I was playing a bit online, was using the chess club mainly. Now, obviously, the computer is an important tool for me preparing for my games.
Magnus Carlsen
Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.
Mike Murdock
I’m preparing to be a mother one day and I really wanted to get inside the mind of a mom.
LeToya Luckett
So many actors get caught up in their technique, and to be honest, I see it really getting in the way. I see them forcing things. I definitely do my best work when I’m free of that. But I think as an actor, I work really hard in preparing the roles.
Gerard Butler
We’ve begun preparing to repeal and replace Obamacare…I know you can say, oh, Obamacare. I mean, they fill up our rallies with people that you wonder how they get there, but they are not the Republican people our representatives are representing.
Donald Trump
The process of writing a book is like the process of preparing a dinner. Serving dishes, choosing ingredients and so on.
Brian Tracy
We need to be reminded that there is nothing morbid about honestly confronting the fact of life’s end, and preparing for it so that we may go gracefully and peacefully.
Billy Graham
When I’m playing the 1-guard, teams do a great job of just loading up and preparing for my drives and preparing for my three-point shots.
Kyrie Irving
Parenting is not giving your child everything they want. Parenting is not being your child’s friend. Parenting is about preparing your child to be a useful and respectful person in society.
When I was in Class XI, I started preparing for medical college, and after that, the Miss India pageant.
Manushi Chhillar
As any war veteran will tell you, there is a vast difference between preparing for battle and actually facing battle for the first time.
Kevin Hearne
I’m getting fat … as I planned. Luckily, my gut is intentional. I’m actually preparing for a big role. Sure, it’s a cinnamon roll.
Jim Gaffigan
I am going home and I think in a week or so, hopefully, I’ll be done with all the press stuff, and then I can kind of into my cave and start preparing for “Mad Max.”
Charlize Theron
BottleRock has these incredible VIP cabins where a chef is preparing sushi for you in your cabin or lounge decorated by Restoration Hardware.
Michael Rapino
Ballet really lends itself to that because there’s such a sense of ritual, with wrapping the shoes every day and preparing new shoes for every performance. It’s such a process. It’s almost religious, in nature.
Natalie Portman
It [preparing for a role] is just like studying for a test and making the test easy; it makes it a lot of fun, especially when people enjoy it.
Gina Carano
When I perform outside, the major problem that could arise is strong wind.I spend months preparing for the types of wind that occur in different locations.
Philippe Petit
We should want children to value difference. Preparing them for a more just world doesn’t mean teaching them to aspire to purple. It means helping them learn to celebrate black.
Meena Harris
People accuse me of going overboard preparing for my first ten million years in eternity; in my opinion, people go overboard in worrying about their last ten on earth.
Francis Chan
Last summer when we were preparing for the movie, I actually kind of wanted to stay fairly uninformed about it. As we went through the process that we do in the movie, I wanted to be a little wide-eyed.
Thomas Haden Church
Sometimes you don’t have the time to prepare yourself for looking good in front of the mirror with what you’re wearing. And then when you go to work or go out, you don’t like it. I spend a lot of time preparing.
Renzo Rosso
For a single woman, preparing for company means wiping the lipstick off the milk carton.
Elayne Boosler
I didn’t know how to go about preparing for the part of someone who can’t remember who he is. The frustration angle is written in, but there’s also this incredible passive state
Tom Berenger
In baseball, I don’t fraternize with players when it’s time to hit. I’m preparing for the game. It’s the most important time of the day. And I know if I don’t hit, I won’t have a job in the big leagues. That’s why I tend to get very upset when people try to talk to me.
Albert Belle
I am reproached for allegedly preparing my children, my eldest son, as a successor. I swear to you I have never discussed this idea, even with my family or with my sons.
Alexander Lukashenko
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
Benjamin Franklin
But, lady, as women, what wisdom may be ours if not the philosophies of the kitchen? Lupercio Leonardo spoke well when he said: ‘how well one may philosophize when preparing dinner.’ And I often say, when observing these trivial details: had Aristotle prepared vituals [sic], he would have written more.
Juana InГ©s de la Cruz
The thing about happiness is that it doesn’t help you to grow; only unhappiness does that. So I’m grateful that my bed of roses was made up equally of blossoms and thorns. I’ve had a privileged, creative, exciting life, and I think that the parts that were less joyous were preparing me, testing me, strengthening me.
Lana Turner
Our expertise is preparing foods in tough environments. We have a kitchen where we grill and roast and make smelly stuff happen, and then bring it to the site and warm it in a way that makes it taste just-cooked.
David Castle
Peace for us means the destruction of Israel. We are preparing for an all-out war, a war which will last for generations…
Yasser Arafat
I’m expecting a lot from myself, I have set the bar high and I want to do really well for my teammates. I love working out and preparing so I have spent a lot of time doing that.
Giovani Bernard
For some time its been my habit to use images when preparing a speech: rather than write it down, I illustrate it.
Dario Fo
Americans do not have a good track record when it comes to preparing for disasters, unless they see a clear possibility of personally being in harms way.
Irwin Redlener
Preparing your tactical formation is essential. Each player needs to know where he has to be, and that is why there needs to be mutual understanding: because you need absolute discipline.
Louis van Gaal
In Porto, when we were preparing, the players guessed the team that was going to play.
Andre Villas-Boas
Sequencing is a really big factor in preparing for a team that you’ve faced several times. For me, at the end of the day, I feel like if I execute, regardless if I were to use same sequencing as I have in the past against these guys, I still feel confident in my ability to have success.
Jake Arrieta
What we want in students is creativity and a willingness to fail. I always say to students, ‘If you’ve never at some point stayed up all night talking to your new boyfriend about the meaning of life instead of preparing for the test, then you’re not really an intellectual.’
Alison Gopnik
I’m saying that an editorial process that is preparing the material for publication counts as part of the inspiring process whereby God, in his sovereignty, gave every word.
J. I. Packer
You say a new era in art is preparing; you sensed it coming; continue your studies without weakening. God will do the rest.
Paul Cezanne
The war against radical Salafi-Jihadism has been going on for several decades already and it will span many more and the U.S. must be preparing mentally for it.
Will Hurd
Every time I’m preparing a new production, I’m trying to reinvent my style and offer the audience several choices.
Romeo Santos
Spring training is kind of my offseason. I’m preparing for the season, but the workload that I experience in spring is much lower than any other time of year. And so, I enjoy it.
Trevor Bauer
Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.
John Spence
Preparing for climate change has to be a national priority backed by tens of billions in federal investment. Lives are on the line.
Bill de Blasio
I have worked on my defense skills and played in the midfield as well. Coaches are preparing players to play at any given position.
Sandeep Singh
I’ve learned a lot about the process. I had no idea how the balls got from the officials locker room down on the field and so forth and so on and all of that. That’s not something I have ever thought or concerned myself about [on] game day. I’ve concerned myself with preparing and coaching the team.
Bill Belichick
I would say from top to bottom, the SEC is strongest. Every now and then, another conference is going to have a great number one team. But week in and week out, having to play a really tough schedule that’s preparing you for the postВ­season, there’s no better conference than the SEC.
Maria Taylor
The task of evangelism often involves preparing an open road so offenders can find their refuge in Christ.
Max Anders
I think we’re going to have some difficulty in front of us. I have absolutely no doubt the next three, four years Europe are going to be at best stagnation. We are preparing for tough times.
Carlos Ghosn
I don’t think about it, ‘Wow! I’m the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.’ For me, this is my job. This is what I’ve been preparing to do. And I really want to win badly.
Tony Romo
I hate to write and spend months just waiting for the film to get financed. Then when you start preparing the film and you shoot it, you’ve already forgotten why you wanted to make the film in the first place. I like to have some kind of coherent energy that takes you through writing, preparing, shooting.
Olivier Assayas
Jesus resisted the temptation of outrage and the quick fix of condemnation. He spent most of his time preparing wineskins before pouring new wine into them. Our tendency is to start pouring the wine into skins that will only burst.
Ravi Zacharias
As a kid, I’d go into the bathroom when I was having a tantrum. I’d be in the bathroom crying, studying myself in the mirror. I was preparing for future roles.
Adam Sandler
Well, any time I’m preparing for a performance or even a rehearsal, it’s as if in a way, like any other athletes, these are muscles that support the vocal cords which are just I believe cartilage. It demands a kind of constant warming up and a constant feeling of where is the voice today.
Renee Fleming
I think that really what our training, what our culture, our religious institutions, our educational and cultural institutions should be about is preparing the heart for that journey outside of the cage of the ribs.
Leonard Cohen
Preparing for action sequences helps me stay fit.
Anushka Shetty
I do it when I’m a preparing for a role quite a bit – I sit with music. It helps influence the discovery of something. Then sometimes during filming I like to listen to the same things. It brings me back to a place where I just feel more creative and focused.
Rami Malek
I do have high expectations for Alex Riley. He seems athletic, articulate and intelligent. Only time will tell how far he goes, but Riley has bonafide potential. FCW did a nice job of preparing Alex for WWE. Alex’s future success is largely up to Alex.
Jim Ross
We discover that we are at the same time very insignificant and very important, because each of our actions is preparing the humanity of tomorrow; it is a tiny contribution to the construction of the huge and glorious final humanity
Jean Vanier
Dancing is never excruciating as preparing for it is. For instance, the song ‘Chamma Chamma’ had heavy outfits and even more heavy jewellery. ‘Kambakht Ishq’ was shot in extreme heat during the day and a rain sequence in the night, so we were literally drenched throughout the night.
Urmila Matondkar
I don’t think about my losses. I only think about winning my next fight and preparing for my next fight.
Wanderlei Silva
While Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the Great King’s army and demanded that the Greeks lay down their arms and submit to the might of Persia. Leonidas laconically told Xerxes, “Come and get them.
In many countries, schools are preparing students to participate in a democratic environment; yet schools themselves tend to be extremely autocratic, with all high-level decisions being made by adults.
Adora Svitak
I always tell actors, “Don’t think of it as unemployment when you don’t have a job. You have to think of it as being in preparation for your next job.” You have to be always preparing for success.
Virginia Madsen
I was preparing myself unknowingly for ‘Bigg Boss’ for a long time now. It is a show about personality, and I love mine a lot. I would love to flaunt it in front of millions of viewers.
Divya Agarwal
Of your own indefatigable labor from early dawn and of your explicit instructions, that the batteries should reserve their ammunition, until the grand charge should commence, for which the enemy were undoubtedly preparing.
John Bigelow
While few human challenges are greater than that of being good parents, few opportunities offer greater potential for joy. Surely, no more important work is to be done in this world than preparing our children to be God-fearing, happy, honorable, and productive.
James E. Faust
I hide my grief, just like the blessed birds hide themselves when they are preparing to die, my love.
Omar Khayyam
Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character.
Alan Armstrong
I spent a lot of time preparing for releasing music and then not a lot of time releasing music.
King Princess
Striving for peace and preparing for war are incompatible with each other, and in our time more so than ever.
Albert Einstein
I didn’t even realize it was a grand slam (number thirty-one) because I was mentally preparing myself for Andy Benes because he struck me out the first time.
Mark McGwire
Once you’ve made your first feature, you know what you can do wrong and how hard it is to shoot a feature. Before you do it, you just don’t know how hard it is. Once you’ve done it, when you’re writing a second one, it’s almost like you’re preparing, and it’s almost holding you back.
Mike Birbiglia
The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life.
Maria Montessori
The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.
Thomas S. Monson
You do not play then at whist, sir? Alas, what a sad old age you are preparing for yourself!
Charles Lamb
I went through a phase of deep introspection. I realised that while doing films back to back, I was getting burnt out and not concentrating on quality. I wasn’t preparing for my role and was working like a machine. When I saw the result on the big screen, I felt that the work I’d done was horrible.
Amala Paul
With science fiction I think we are preparing ourselves for contact with them, whoever they may be.
Dwight Schultz
More time on paperwork means less time spent with students or preparing lessons for students. It is as simple as that. The numerous reforms in the bill will go a long way to free our time of special educators.
Christopher Bond
When I was preparing for ‘1994,’ the song for Deena and Sam was ‘Fast Car’ by Tracy Chapman. I just really love that song so much, and I think the lyrics really hit home and reminded me of their dynamic.
Kiana Madeira
Play is a sacred thing, a divine ordinance, for developing in the child a harmonious and healthy organism, and preparing that organism for the commencement of the work of life.
J. G. Holland
Clay is so challenging as a surface because you want to be playing aggressively but the margins are so small and it’s easy to get the balance wrong and start making errors. Getting your movement right and preparing correctly to hit your shots is key.
Tim Henman
Our schools play an important role in preparing our students to enter the workforce.
Mike Parson
Preparing for battle, plans were essential. But once the battle was joined, plans were useless.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
At 2, I start preparing fish or chicken for dinner. I don’t drive. I don’t have hobbies. I have no desire to travel.
Lawrence Sanders
Slowly and steadily I’m preparing myself for Bollywood and I can’t wait till I get an opportunity.
Gurmeet Choudhary
When I’m preparing for a swim, I imagine absolutely everything about it: the color of the water, how cold it is, the taste of salt in my mouth. I visualize each and every stroke.
Lewis Gordon
The Spirit goes ahead of us when we witness—
preparing the way, giving us the words, and granting us courage.
Billy Graham
Astronauts are very professional and when they’re preparing for launch, they prepare for it as the most serious endeavor of our lives.
Ellen Ochoa
Fundamental, Bible believing people do not have the right to indoctrinate their children in their religious beliefs because we, the state, are preparing them for the year 2000, when America will be part of a one-world global society and their children will not fit in.
Peter Hoagland
Every time when I start preparing my character for a movie, I always try to make up and create my own background story for the role in order to fill it with life.
Sibel Kekilli
