I must say, I always – from experience, when I watch TV shows and I see characters leave without a proper explanation or leave with not enough time, I get irritated.

I want to do Hindi films, but a proper one and a good production. I’m even open to multi-starrers because those work better in Bollywood.

I think my strength is to act instinctively, really quickly, on what I believe, what I see in this person. A proper portrait. I wouldn’t dream of doing something inappropriate for that person. I guess I make the person comfortable around me.
Juergen Teller
I think to do a proper independent movie, in my experience, it takes 22 or 23 days to shoot. That was ‘Party Girl’ or ‘House of Yes.’ But now with the digital camera, the budgets have gotten smaller, and the days have gotten shorter.
Parker Posey
When you sketch a shoe but don’t have the intention to do a proper shoe, it remains a curvy sketch with no detail. The shoe completely morphs to the body.

Helen George

We have got to make sure there is proper independent scrutiny and accountability for people in the press, just as there should be in any other industry where things go wrong.

Nick Clegg
I remember, the first time I gave Dad a proper hug, it was big.

I may try and get into education. I may open a school, and that is my ultimate dream. Opening a school will give education to children, who are the future of our country. If we can educate them in a proper way, I think that will change the future of the country.
Gautam Gambhir
I’d bowled a lot, but I never really had proper lessons.
John Goodman
My dad bought a Beatles tape when I was in fifth grade, and that was the first time I ever really – I mean I was into music, but that was the first time it really blew my mind. When I heard the ‘Red Compilation,’ which wasn’t like a proper album, I thought, ‘music was more than I had ever thought it was before.’
Andrew Dost
An introvert as a child, I spent most of my younger years being bullied for my name. It took its toll on me, and by Class VI, I couldn’t even have a proper conversation with anyone.
Kubra Sait
We can be a free and independent country and will prosper if given a proper chance.
Priti Patel
I have long believed these types of collaborative agreements are a far better approach to federal land management than the contentious battles that too often sidetrack proper resource management.
Mike Simpson
Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance.
Isaac Newton
At times it is folly to hasten at other times, to delay. The wise do everything in its proper time.
I was a 19 year old kid; I was 170 lbs soaking wet. I didn’t have an identity. I didn’t have a look. I didn’t have the proper gear. I was just a young guy trying to be a wrestler. So, to be honest, WWE didn’t even give me a second look.
Adam Cole
I was a big and un-ironic fan of Dear Abby when I was a kid in Chicago. I think I sort of internalized her. So I have this inner Abby: cranky, proper, folksy yet scathing, with a beehive hairdo. But that’s my issue.
George Saunders
I’m gonna show the world how to do proper football reporting, Narstie-style.
Big Narstie
A woman confronting men is a proper subject, it is inexhaustible.
Claude Chabrol
I am a coffee fanatic. Once you go to proper coffee, you can’t go back. You cannot go back.
Hugh Laurie
My first proper kiss was from Cara Shucksmith when I was 13 or 14 at her birthday party.
Robert Webb
We have to make their livelihoods viable, get them the proper prices for their produce, try and make them stay rather than sell their property and leave again.
Paddy Ashdown
I’ve always had a proper job. I don’t know anything else.
Guy Martin
In making a speech one must study three points: first, the means of producing persuasion; second, the language; third the proper arrangement of the various parts of the speech.
It is the same with revolution; so long as the proper spirit is spreading amongst our young men, we are satisfied that it spreads without bombast or parade.
Henry Lawson
There is no need for government to intervene in money and prices because of changing population or for any other reason. The ‘problem’ of the proper supply of money is not a problem at all.
Murray Rothbard
So, one of the things I was doing with the aliens in The Quiet Invasion was creating that advanced society which had ideas about morality and proper use of natural resources that were radically different from ours, as the Europeans were from the American Indians.
Sarah Zettel
I believe that proper eating will help all sorts of diseases. I can’t say it will cure, but I can say it will materially help.
David H. Murdock
I do not fear truth. I welcome it. But I wish all of my facts to be in their proper context.
Gordon B. Hinckley
It is far more difficult to be simple than to be complicated; far more difficult to sacrifice skill and easy execution in the proper place, than to expand both indiscriminately.
John Ruskin
He who looks the higher is the more highly distinguished, and turning over the great book of nature (which is the proper object of philosophy) is the way to elevate one’s gaze.
Galileo Galilei
Each haka has its own interpretation, but you have to make sure you are in unison with your team-mates; the haka should be a proper war cry.
Jonah Lomu
I played guitar from the age of four or five. Every year there would be a slightly larger triangular box under the Christmas tree, until finally I got one that was big enough to make a proper sound.
Johnny Marr
The strong should always permit the weak and aggrieved to talk, to bluster, and scold without taking offence; and if we had so acted, and exercised proper skill in the management of our affairs, Mexico and ourselves would, by this time, have quietly and peaceably settled all difficulties and been good friends.
John C. Calhoun
Dartmoor proper consists of that upland region of granite, rising to nearly 2,000 feet above the sea, and actually shooting above that height at a few points, which is the nursery of many of the rivers of Devon.
Sabine Baring-Gould
If we left the European Union, it would be a one-way ticket, not a return. So we will have time for a proper, reasoned debate. At the end of that debate you, the British people, will decide.
David Cameron
My deepest impulses are optimistic, an attitude that seems to me as spiritually necessary and proper as it is intellectually suspect.
Ellen Willis
When you get into the final week of the Tour de France, it becomes a different kind of race. As the distance and the fatigue really tell, that is when it becomes a proper test of everyone’s fitness.
Bradley Wiggins
Fashion comes and goes; prints come and go. Proper camo never really goes away.
Nick Wooster
If you can speak English, and you can get a place on a proper course at a proper university, you can come to study in Britain.
Theresa May
In 1976, Rastafarians were one of the most violated, persecuted groups in Jamaica. They could be beaten within an inch of their lives, or detained for two years, just for being found in a ‘proper’ neighbourhood.
Marlon James
My uncle was in a ska band called the Top Cats; that was my first proper influence, as I was taken to see them every week. It sort of built up, the want to replicate it creatively.
King Krule
The truth is I have always found it hard to get up. One of the reasons I became an actor was specifically because you get to lie in more than people with proper jobs.
Tom Hollander
When you do a telemedicine visit, you don’t do a proper physical exam.
Mikhail Varshavski
I like things in their proper places.
Alan Sugar
We had only snacks last time, I think it was OK for a day time menu. But this time it will be late night when people gather so we should add some proper meals.
Hidetoshi Nakata
Proper names are rigid designators.
Saul Kripke
I felt the question of the afterlife was the black hole of the personal universe: something for which substantial proof of existence had been offered but which had not yet been explored in the proper way by scientists and philosophers.
Raymond Moody
Venissa is a perfect destination for day-trippers from Venice proper who are searching for great food and a little adventure; it’s a 30-minute jaunt by vaporetto from St. Mark’s, quicker by water taxi.
Roger Morris
I need to have proper equipment when I work out, and the Nike Frees are light, comfortable, and great for training. I also usually bring a short-sleeve or long-sleeve compression shirt and a pair of shorts.
Sam Bradford
I had a sort of classic moment when a friend of mine rang up and said she’d just been to a funeral, and in the middle of the eulogy, this kid had taken out the phone and had a whole proper text conversation – while everyone was weeping!
Beeban Kidron
You have to put money in its proper perspective. The way it is positioned in the culture is like it is the most important thing. But something is missing.
Jim Brown
Coughs seem very common here, especially among the children, though people look strong and healthy, but in the absence of proper statistics one cannot undertake to say whether the district is a healthy one or not.
Edward Burnett Tylor
I am able to hang with the hardest, the baddest, the worst, and I’m able to hang with the most proper and be at ease. I’m able to hang with any skin colour, any belief. I just fit in everywhere.
Alicia Keys
Comedy isn’t necessarily all dialogue. Think of Buster Keaton: the poker face and all this chaos going on all around him. Sometimes it’s a question of timing, of the proper rhythm.
Clint Eastwood
Conservatism is not the problem. Conservatism is the founding of this country, essentially. Conservatism isn’t even really an ideology. Conservatism is just what is right, proper, decent, and moral. That’s all it is.
Rush Limbaugh
What it is saying is that someone who was a world champion and who takes care of himself with a 17-year rest and applies the proper training techniques and perseverance could be successful.
Mark Spitz
Some people may get in to the building without the proper passes and things, but I think that’s the price you pay for being an open place for people to come.
Margo MacDonald
We continue to recognize the greater ability of some to earn more than others. But we do assert that the ambition of the individual to obtain for him a proper security is an ambition to be preferred to the appetite for great wealth and great power.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
My dad used to cut out newspaper ads and post them to me in the hope I’d get a proper job.
Jane Fallon
My first proper credit was a small voice-over on an episode of ‘The Sopranos’ when I was, like, 11 or 12.
Morgan Saylor
The spiritual (i.e. the supersensory) has many degrees; thus, the term ‘spiritual’ is used both for the scale of degrees away from the physical towards the spirit, but also only for the spiritual proper.
Piet Mondrian
In our excessive involvement in the affairs of other countries, we are not only living off our assets and denying our own people the proper enjoyment of their resources; we are also denying the world the example of a free society enjoying its freedom to the fullest.
J. William Fulbright
If you’re trained as a proper political consultant, you should be able to undertake your profession no matter who the client is.
Brittany Kaiser
I can only say that there is not a man living who wishes more sincerely than I do, to see a plan adopted for the abolition of it – but there is only one proper and effectual mode by which it can be accomplished, and that is by Legislative authority: and this, as far as my suffrage will go, shall never be wanting.
George Washington
The lack of access to proper nutrition is not only fueling obesity, it is leading to food insecurity and hunger among our children.
Tom Vilsack
When the phonies are expelled from their leadership roles and the Republican Party backs a moderate gubernatorial candidate acceptable to the rank and file with proper financing and the intestinal fortitude to fight the good fight, the rank and file will rejoin the fold.
Carl Paladino
Traditionally, scientists have treated the laws of physics as simply ‘given,’ elegant mathematical relationships that were somehow imprinted on the universe at its birth, and fixed thereafter. Inquiry into the origin and nature of the laws was not regarded as a proper part of science.
Paul Davies
I have a foundation where it caters to street children and entices them to go back to school. The street is not a good school for them. They need to go to a proper school.
Arnel Pineda
The science of the mind can only have for its proper goal the understanding of human nature by every human being, and through its use, brings peace to every human soul.
Alfred Adler
I don’t do any sim at home or whatever. If I do, it’s with the team, which is a proper preparation for me.
Mick Schumacher
Chiral receptor sites in the human body interact only with drug molecules having the proper absolute configuration, resulting in marked differences in the pharmacological activities of enantiomers.
Ryoji Noyori
My first job was a commercial for a Swiss insurance company. It was an eight-minute short with a proper story arc, and it ended up getting a spot at Cannes Lions; I was lucky to avoid the commercials where you’re their puppet.
Charlie Heaton
I’d love to have a proper sailing boat and go around the world.
Jonathan Powell
In Israel, we are sorry for the loss of life of Turkish citizens in May 2010, when Israel confronted a provocative flotilla of ships bound for Gaza. I am sure that the proper way to express these sentiments to the Turkish government and the Turkish people can be found.
Ehud Olmert
Food makes travel so exceptional, because you get to taste what it’s actually supposed to taste like. To eat the real Pad Thai or finally have a proper curry is something pretty amazing.
Meghan Markle
I eat meat, poultry and fish in proper proportion – nothing to excess.
Norman Lloyd
When I’m not working, I don’t wear a lot of makeup. When I do, I like to accentuate my eyes and wear natural colors. I am also mindful of the proper way to apply concealer.
Jessica White
I did a lot of stage plays and musicals, and my first proper acting job was on ‘Holby City’ when I was 15.
Lee Ryan
I guess I don’t have a proper perspective on my fame; if I did, I don’t think I’d like it.
Calvin Klein
A fair trial is one in which the rules of evidence are honored, the accused has competent counsel, and the judge enforces the proper courtroom procedures – a trial in which every assumption can be challenged.
Harry Browne
Here is God’s purpose – for God, to me, it seems, is a verb not a noun, proper or improper.
R. Buckminster Fuller
I flew to Los Angeles to interview Vinnie Jones and Piers Morgan for the BBC and spent 11 hours in economy on BA, and the leg room was fine. In business class, Virgin, BA, and Emirates are good. I’ve flown business class on Kingfisher, which has proper couches.
Andrew Flintoff
When conducted with proper preparation, and in a focused and professional manner, oversight of executive branch actions can reveal serious shortcomings by government officials and help prevent recurrence; the ‘Waco hearings,’ conducted over a two-week period in 1995, stand as an example of such an undertaking.
Bob Barr
Anybody that got in your way or stopped you or barred your success, you either push through them or work around them. I don’t have enough time for excuses or crying about people saying how someone wasn’t given a proper opportunity. Nobody gave me an opportunity.
Samoa Joe
This Martina Navratilova is a real champion, but with the proper training, I can make miracles happen.
Bobby Riggs
The proper study of mankind is woman.
Henry Adams
But with ‘Newsrevue’ I started doing some characters, and I just loved how you were in control. You could write something that day and go and do it that night, rather than waiting for a job that involves other people. So I did character stand-up, and then proper stand-up, and I loved it; I got addicted.
Sara Pascoe
I can do basics, but I’m not a proper cook. I can do a roast. I can stick a chicken in the oven with vegetables.
Lesley Nicol
The Internet has perceived me as this fantastic dancer. I can still do a couple pirouettes, but I am by no means a proper dancer.
Tom Holland
The most essential part of my day is a proper dinner.
Rachael Ray
It’s a little bit late in the day for men to object that women are getting outside their proper sphere.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas
There aren’t too many principles of proper business conduct with which just about everybody will agree. Two come to mind: 1. Unless you’re a professional athlete, don’t offer co-workers encouragement by patting them on the butt, and 2. Don’t burn bridges.
Dale Dauten
As a man, there’s a part of me that feels I should still be going out and doing a proper day’s work.
Ray Winstone
Wisdom is the power to put our time and our knowledge to the proper use.
Thomas J. Watson
I got into cello in the fourth grade, and I played that for years. I adored playing it. I got an opera coach when I was 12 because I really wanted to learn how to sing properly. The only proper way to sing, I thought at that age, was opera.
Beth Hart
My dad used to be a rapper, he had a rap group. They did proper old school, boom-bap music. He had a high top and everything.
AJ Tracey
The whites have resolved to destroy our liberty and have therefore brought a force commensurate to their intentions. The Cape, after a proper resistance, has fallen into their hands, but the enemy found only a town and plain in ashes; the forts were blown up, and all was burnt.
Toussaint Louverture
If you start from the farm sector, we need much better investments and capital creation on land. We need logistics support; we need cold chain and processing capability. We need proper pricing at various stages to ensure that the producers are not left out in the value-chain.
Arundhati Bhattacharya
Cyber weapons won’t go away, and their spread can’t be controlled. Instead, as we’ve done for other destructive technologies, the world needs to establish a set of principles to determine the proper conduct of governments regarding cyber conflict.
Jared Cohen
In well-functioning markets, price equals opportunity cost. Meaning that the proper way to price out and charge us for things is to charge us what those resources could otherwise have produced. This is a lesson the Soviet Union never learned at all, and the rest is history.
Paul Samuelson
That’s the thing, you see, we were never good enough to write proper punchlines.
Bob Mortimer
The proper union of gin and vermouth is a great and sudden glory; it is one of the happiest marriages on earth, and one of the shortest lived.
Bernard DeVoto
It’s just a dream of the struggling actor to just have a proper shot – not just in a film that people will see, but with a character that’s rich and complicated and that you can show you’re capable of taking on.
Katherine Waterston
When I am listening to Vivaldi or Japanese music or making spaghetti at 3 in the morning and realize that I don’t have the proper sauce for it, fame is of no use.
Saul Leiter
It’s a tougher gig than what people think it is. The proper, real, genuine, worldwide movie stars don’t get a lot of downtime from the world outside. That’s a tougher price, I think, than what people’s fantasy of fame account for.
Ben Mendelsohn
After it was sewn back on, they did a proper job of it, and now it’s OK. It looks a little distorted, and the nail has not grown fully back yet, but I’m thankful I still have my thumb, and I can still do my horn sign.
Ronnie James Dio
I feel like a lot of pop singers hurt themselves if they don’t have the proper training.
Bonnie McKee
What I do is provide a quality product with a quality taste, that’s sustainable, and present it with a proper price structure so when people see it on the shelves, they will want to try it.
Rohan Marley
Absent scandal, a federal judge can serve for decades on the bench, underscoring the importance of appointing judges who have a proper understanding of their constitutional role.
Paul Weyrich
I also like a great Caesar salad with anchovies, although I don’t know why some places say ‘with anchovies.’ If you’re making a proper Caesar salad, it’s going to have anchovies.
Paula Poundstone
I’m a mom. I’m from Ethiopia. I gave birth in the U.S. and had all the proper care available to me. If I had given birth in Ethiopia – I don’t know if I might have even survived it.
Liya Kebede
I didn’t get to experience proper autumn until I was eighteen and heading off to college on the East Coast!
Alexandra Bracken
I am no supporter of factory labor for children, but I have never joined with those who clamored against proper work of children on farms outside their school hours.
Herbert Hoover
IT may be proper to observe further, that this Duty is not confined to those who live under any one particular Form of Government: It extends to the Subjects of all regular States, lawfully established.
Charles Inglis
I don’t actually do anything special to get in the proper frame of mind for creepy/heinous scenes.
Paul S. Kemp
Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.
Joseph Addison
I took business and economics courses. More than anything, I learned the proper steps and the things that need to be outlined. You have to keep your books: how much money you made, how much money you’re spending, what you profited, and what you’re gonna need for expenses.
Karen Civil
The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year’s Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you’re married to.
P. J. O’Rourke
Don’t most of us agree that providing school meals to kids who need them is an overwhelmingly good thing? After all, nutrition is essential to proper cognitive development.
Laura Moser
My style kind of differs – sometimes I want to be a little dressed down, a little tomboy, sometimes I want to be dressed up and very chic and look proper. But I don’t ever believe in overdoing it for day-to-day style.
Hailey Baldwin
Nothing can conduce more to the order and stability of a government than the simplicity of the laws, the proper definition of rights, and their impartial and consistent administration.
Sam Houston
I enjoyed L.A. because it was nice to be in the sunshine and live in a house with proper wardrobes. I loved the space.
Caitriona Balfe
Get proper training right from the beginning. It prevents injuries and avoids wasting your time with misdirected effort, which is what most people generally don’t understand. Give it your all from day one.
Ronnie Coleman
I guess that is what I remember of ‘Mezzanine’: it was a proper struggle.
Robert Del Naja
There is nothing better than a proper breakfast.
Sophie Dahl
We have not provided our frontline supervisors and managers and individuals with the proper procedures that would allow them to use their common sense.
Oscar Munoz
I’m a capitalist. I believe in the proper working of the free market. That’s why I found the scandals of 2008, the banks, Libor, absolutely abhorrent.
Richard Quest
I never thought I’d get to the point where I’d be able to release a proper album, and I absolutely never thought that when I did, I would give it a name as stupid I have, but here we are.
Lewis Capaldi
I’m a proper man.
Vitor Belfort
In truth, every creation of the mind is first of all ‘poetic’ in the proper sense of the word; and inasmuch as there exists an equivalence between the modes of sensibility and intellect, it is the same function that is exercised initially in the enterprises of the poet and the scientist.
Saint-John Perse
I assume that the proper study of interaction is not the individual and his psychology, but rather the syntactical relations among the acts of different persons mutually present to another.
Erving Goffman
Nothing makes it easier to resist temptation than a proper bringing-up, a sound set of values – and witnesses.
Franklin P. Jones
The people on programmes like ‘Made in Chelsea’ just want to be celebrities. It’s so depressing. No proper actor has that as a goal. I’m striving for longevity in my career.
Kelly Macdonald
I was nervous about meeting Charlotte Rampling, as she’s a proper legend, but she is just so sweet.
Olivia Colman
My first proper relationship was at 16 in college.
Varun Dhawan
Family life is the backbone of mankind, and that life is dependent upon mutual giving, sharing, and receiving from each other. It entails the proper use of each other’s successes and failures for mutual up-building.
Mother Angelica
I remember thinking this was a proper football interview, just as David Davies had promised. But then the line of questioning changed, and it became about my beliefs on reincarnation.
Glenn Hoddle
On the beach, we women are at our most exposed and therefore most vulnerable. As any woman deserves to look and feel good, especially when she’s away on holiday, she needs swimwear that pays proper attention to comfort and function. And there should also be some thought put into value.
Geri Halliwell
Of all the diversions of life, there is none so proper to fill up its empty spaces as the reading of useful and entertaining authors.
David Viscott
OCD is a really serious condition – it’s a proper thing. It’s not just, ‘Oh, you like your pens to be straight’. For me, it would always go in tandem with being unhappy. The unhappier I was, the worse it got.
Jon Richardson
I’m never proper or careful, but I never curse in front of my mother, either.
Chris Rock
Responsibility for the proper conduct of children was not confined to their parents only. When they misbehaved, they misbehaved against the community. And a senior member of the community was expected to do something about it.
Oliver Tambo
Major miscarriages of justice have occurred because of the absence of proper legal representation.
Sadiq Khan
I am interested in how cells know what they are and how they should behave in their proper place in the body.
Tim Hunt
It’s so important for those living with chronic pain to establish good communication with both their healthcare professionals and caregivers. Clear communication about pain is vital to receiving proper diagnosis and effective treatment.
Naomi Judd
I was born on the west side of Chicago, and there was quite a bit of poverty. My family and I didn’t have exactly the best or the most optimal financial situation in my youth, but we turned out well. My mom always made sure that we got a proper education and that we dedicated ourselves to our work.
Sufe Bradshaw
I was doing it the amateur way, doing everything myself till ‘Naalaya Iyakunar.’ They said, ‘You need crew members’; they insisted on having proper production values. So I learnt a lot about making films for that show.
Karthik Subbaraj
I would always talk with my friends in English and Spanglish, but it was more like slang. It was more like, ‘Yo, what’s up, dog?’ But in Spanish, I know what’s proper, and what’s ghetto. I know the difference.
Romeo Santos
There are two proper ways to use garlic: pounding and blooming. Neither involves a press, which is little more than a torture device for a beloved ingredient, smushing it up into watery squiggles of inconsistent size that will never cook evenly or vanish into a vinaigrette. If you have one, throw it away!
Samin Nosrat
It is altogether proper for people to recognize a sovereign God.
Roy Moore
I just get really bored with sticking to the norm and having the proper conservative image. That’s just so not me.
Christina Aguilera
I remember when I got to 16, my mum was like, ‘No, now you’ve got to go and get a proper job. We’ve indulged you long enough.’ I don’t think they ever thought I was going to be successful in entertainment at all.
Kelly Brook
These are busy times for the Border Patrol, the customs agents, immigration folks; but if we are going to send these agencies to fight a war on drugs, to fight a war against illegal behavior, we have to send them the proper tools.
Bob Filner
This country deserves a statesman who can represent the people with proper decorum, respect, and knowledge of what’s happening in the world, and I don’t believe that Donald Trump represents any of that.
Michael Kelly
The idea of ‘talking white,’ a lot of people grew up around that, just the idea that if you speak with proper diction and come off as educated that it’s not black and that it’s actually anti-black and should be considered only something that white people would do.
Chance The Rapper
I was raised a proper Southern boy.
Powers Boothe
I regard freedom of expression as the primary right without which one can not have a proper functioning democracy.
Lord Hailsham
Somerset is the first proper country county you come to in the West, which isn’t dependent on London and isn’t full of commuters. Somerset is full of the most fantastically interesting people.
Charles Hazlewood
Screenwriting is still a challenge for me. It’s more technical than creative. You have to be a very good journeyman plumber and put the proper parts together. Then, if you can still inject a little bit of something worthwhile, you have done as much as can be expected.
Leigh Brackett
Being pregnant is not license to forget all the rules that you abide by when you’re not pregnant. Moving your body, getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, and eating proper foods throughout the day are even more important when you’re pregnant.
David Kirsch
The ministers of kings should learn to moderate their ambition. The higher they elevate themselves above their proper sphere, the greater the danger that they will fall.
Louis XIV
My plans are not to open a restaurant, but what I would like to do is open a kitchen somewhere in D.C. proper and have a chef’s table where people can come and taste my food without having to have a catered event.
Carla Hall
Animals when in company walk in a proper and sensible manner, in single file, instead of sprawling all across the road and being of no use or support to each other in case of sudden trouble or danger.
Kenneth Grahame
I have done martial arts my whole life, so it comes easily, but I have never done proper sword fighting.
Alexander Dreymon
I really don’t care for the proper chef coat.
David Chang
As a good wine must be kept in a good cask, so a wholesome body is the proper foundation for a well-appointed inner ground.
Johannes Tauler
There is nothing of greater importance to the well-being of society at large – of man as well as woman – than the true proper position of woman.
Lucretia Mott
Early in my career, I had difficulty breathing during workouts and my performance on the ice suffered. It wasn’t until I was diagnosed with EIB and received the proper treatment that I was able to reach my peak performance.
Apolo Ohno
I’m always on tour, so I’m always trying new tracks out live before they’re released. That’s more necessity than anything, because I don’t get a proper chance to sit in a studio and work on tracks like other producers do.
Any MP has to have a proper family life, they have to have support of their partner.
Michel Martelly
I try to write about a woman finding her self-respect, valuing herself, and liking herself again. But what one desperately wants now is to write a proper novel.
Kate O’Mara
I was good at most subjects at school. Looking back, I was a proper boffin! Now, the thing I’m really good at is poker.
Non-citizen terrorist suspects are not members of the American national community, and they have no proper claim on the rights Americans accord one another.
Richard Perle
Writers on etiquette receive a continuous flow of questions on subjects such as ‘When is it too early in the season to wear white accessories?’ and ‘What is the proper gift to send to a family in mourning?’
Letitia Baldrige
Judges need to restrict themselves to the proper resolution of the case before them. They need to avoid the temptation to set broad policy.
Mike DeWine
I used to think there was a scientific way to do things. Like a proper way to answer a question or that kind of stuff. It’s like, there’s not! There’s not a method, there’s not a science to it.
Hunter Hayes
Building a proper wardrobe is like building a home. Indeed, you should think of it like a home, because it is something you’re going to live in. It must be comfortable and suit all your needs.
Edith Head
It was the full conviction of this, and of what could be done, if every man were placed in the office for which he was fitted by nature and a proper education, which first suggested to me the plan of Illumination.
Adam Weishaupt
I have a fear of poverty in old age. I have this vision of myself living in a skip and eating cat food. It’s because I’m freelance, and I’ve never had a proper job. I don’t have a pension, and my savings are dwindling. I always thought someone would just come along and look after me.
Jenny Eclair
As we learn from the New Testament, the Jews and the Samaritans in the days of Jesus were not agreed on the question which was the proper place of worship, but that there could be only one was taken to be as certain as the unity of God Himself.
Julius Wellhausen
I’m just wanting to make the proper breakfast and keep the house. That’s my passion. At the request of my kids, I’m taking cooking classes. As I go to sleep at night, I think, ‘Did I do a great job as a mom, or was that an average day?’
Angelina Jolie
Sadly, we don’t have Gujarati food on sets, but we do love the delicious Rajasthani dal-baati, gatte ki sabzi, and those proper Rajasthani thalis.
Karishma Tanna
I’m working on a proper rock record, a good, old-school rock record. Finally.
Liz Phair
The generality have considered that disease is but a confused and disordered effort in Nature, thrown down from her proper state, and defending herself in vain.
Thomas Sydenham
Judges ought to be more leaned than witty, more reverent than plausible, and more advised than confident. Above all things, integrity is their portion and proper virtue.
Francis Bacon
I could never write a proper party song.
Asking the proper questions is the central action of transformation. Questions are the key that causes the secret doors of the psyche to swing open.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
It’s an epidemic. Instead of socialising and having proper conversations, we’re staring at pictures of models in bikinis and wondering how they look like that. It’s like self-loathing.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
Indeed, the woes of Software Engineering are not due to lack of tools, or proper management, but largely due to lack of sufficient technical competence.
Niklaus Wirth
I always loved films, and when I decided to go to film school, it was with the excuse that I would go into making commercials, because that would be a proper profession, and people wouldn’t think I was crazy.
Yorgos Lanthimos
I’ve had my moments of insanity. But there is a certain responsibility to set proper examples for your children, and that influences your choices in every aspect of your life.
Andy Garcia
Corruption has reached an unacceptable level. It devours resources that could be devoted to the citizens. It impedes the proper carrying out of market rules and penalizes the honest and capable.
Sergio Mattarella
You learn to give up what’s not working and surround yourself with things you love – not what’s correct or proper.
Alexandra Stoddard
My parents tolerated me reading comics because they knew I was also reading ‘proper’ books, too.
Philip Pullman
Hip-hop has done so much for racial relations, and I don’t think it’s given the proper credit. It has changed America immensely. I’m going to make a very bold statement: Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations.
Look there are going to be, there are already adjustment processes in place but the point is that you’ll actually make them work and get satisfactory outcomes if there’s decent burden sharing along the way. If there’s, if you like a proper transitional assistance.
John Anderson
Proper school nutrition must be complemented by activities outside of the cafeteria. The decisions parents make to keep their kids healthy are critical in fighting this battle on the home front.
Tom Vilsack
You’ve got to have free markets with limited government, with the proper amount of regulation where you don’t jam entrepreneurship.
John Schnatter
Some days I want to look like a hipster kid, and then other days I want to be prim and proper. I really wish I had, like, seven lives so I could go from being a hipster one day to a punk the next. But that’s the great thing about fashion. In a way, it’s like acting, because you can try on all these different roles.
Sophie Turner
Privatizing bits of the prison industry was a step in the right direction, but what we didn’t have – until recently – were proper instruments for incentivizing the judiciary. That’s what the ‘kids for cash’ judges were apparently experimenting with.
Thomas Frank
My first proper ‘Here’s your guitar, Joseph’ was a 1981 Chiquita, one of those Erlewine travel guitars. And it was good for a four-year-old because it was small.
Joe Bonamassa
My first proper kitchen was this funny little club that we set up in Mercer Street in Covent Garden. It got shut down. Then I worked at a club in Notting Hill.
Fergus Henderson
It is a medical fact that children can have a better chance in life with better looks, better health and more vigor if the teeth, nose, throat and mouth are taken proper care of at the crucial time of childhood.
George Eastman
I think I might have played a song on piano or guitar in a school talent show. I went to an all girls school, so there were always little things going on, but it wasn’t really until I was 17 that I did a proper performance. My first big one was Glastonbury, before I was signed.
It feels amazing to be on the MTV Brand New list. I was shocked when I got told – a good shocked. I’m proper happy about it.

Edwin M. Stanton
I have evolved my own exercises, for the muscles I wish to keep firm, and I know they are right for me because I can feel them putting the proper muscles into play as I exercise.
Marilyn Monroe
All workers, whether they are employed in the private or public sector, should avoid living ‘paycheck to paycheck.’ Studies show that every household wastes 10% or more of its salary or income on unnecessary expenditures or by not taking the time to shop for better prices. It’s all a matter of proper budgeting.
Mark Skousen
Photography does not create eternity, as art does; it embalms time, rescuing it simply from its proper corruption.
Andre Bazin
Time puts things in proper perspective.
Cameron Crowe
In advertising, I was frustrated by having to deal with the client. It was the only time I really worked in a proper office, and I didn’t like it-simple as that.
Terry Gilliam
I think when war becomes your life, I think it’s very difficult to have the proper perspective to be able to create a fully balanced policy.
Michael Hastings
It is relatively easy to design for the perfect cases, when everything goes right, or when all the information required is available in proper format.
Donald Norman
There are six components of wellness: proper weight and diet, proper exercise, breaking the smoking habit, control of alcohol, stress management and periodic exams.
Kenneth H. Cooper
Since I met Starsmith, my producer, I really feel like I’m making music because we write it together and produce it together. I’ve got a proper involvement in the end product as opposed to just writing a song and finding someone else to produce it.
Ellie Goulding
You’ve got to pay an awful lot for your hotel before you get fresh orange juice. If a hotel has got proper orange juice – and you do expect it if you’re abroad – I rank the hotel highly.
Mary Berry
We need a proper balance between government spending on nursing homes and nursery schools – on the last six months of life and the first six months of life.
Thomas Friedman
As soon as I got my proper first job, I never did acting again. I think the last thing I did was a Mike Figures film, and then I got a series with the BBC. I’m glad of the experience, because I think it’s very, very good to understand what actors go through.
Justin Chadwick
I was raised in a conservative Christian household. We weren’t even allowed to watch ‘secular’ television, anything that was deemed not proper for Christians.
Matt Bomer
In theatre, there’s no time for a proper meal.
Tamsin Greig
Some of my friends said I wouldn’t have a future in football, as did some of my family, but I still believed in the potential I had. My mum would tell me I needed to get a proper job, but for me, I didn’t want to be anything other than a footballer. That led to some tension and frustration between us.
If all political parties are committed to the role of the free market, the politicians act as, I don’t know, as traffic policemen; they stand outside the ring and let the real decisions be slugged out by entrepreneurs. That doesn’t seem to me a proper democracy.
Ken Loach
Well, certainly I think American television is – that’s proper TV.
Graham Norton
I have no doubt that if we act with proper focus, we can protect our borders, our sovereignty, and our citizens, all while remaining true to America’s noblest legacies.
Nikki Haley
It’s a sense in Minnesota that we need to get back to common sense. We need to get back to taking sensible looks at positions and understanding the proper role of government.
Pete Hegseth
But again, I put in my time with Marvel and DC so there was that period of my life of trying to learn how to draw and tell stories in a proper fashion.
Todd McFarlane
It may not be proper for me, perhaps, to let my feelings carry me further am therefore resigned to stop here, if sir, you think my particular reasons following too free, or will give offense to the House, which I would be sorry to be thought capable of intending.
Christopher Gadsden
At 27 or so I thought, you know, I actually do really want to make money and have a proper life, and I don’t want to be a loser. I know! I’ll go to university and get a proper degree and maybe get a job in media… I went and did an English degree.
Sharon Horgan
The proper study of mankind is the science of design.
Herbert A. Simon
Afrikaans culture is very right-wing and conservative, very proper, and you get this hidden underbelly, the zef side of Afrikaans which no one knows about.
Watkin Tudor Jones
All my habits through life have been singularly removed from any condition of reliance on others, and the feeling – right or wrong – that aloneness is my proper position has prevailed since my early childhood, no doubt nourished and strengthened by many and quick-following bereavements.
Dorothea Dix
By providing our young children with opportunities for free, child-directed play, along with proper nutrition, we are setting them up for a lifetime of healthy habits, versus interventions needed later in life.
Darell Hammond
I was like, ‘I can’t do grime. That’s for kids.’ – I was 20 at the time, and I thought I was a gangsta, a proper rude boy.
We can put television in its proper light by supposing that Gutenberg’s great invention had been directed at printing only comic books.
Robert M. Hutchins
In any event, the proper question isn’t what a journalist thinks is relevant but what his or her audience thinks is relevant. Denying people information they would find useful because you think they shouldn’t find it useful is censorship, not journalism.
Michael Kinsley
My family is really proper.
Millie Bobby Brown
In Manchester, you don’t have proper tall buildings. Or in Munich.
Bastian Schweinsteiger
At last the best of artisans ordained that that creature to whom He had been able to give nothing proper to himself should have joint possession of whatever had been peculiar to each of the different kinds of being.
Giovanni Pico della Mirandola
I used to work at a pub called The Miner’s Rest, and the landlord, Dennis, taught me how to pour a proper pint – it’s the type of place where the regulars would send their drinks back if they weren’t right.
Katherine Kelly
The first time I went out under the spotlight, I was proper freaked out.
Katy B
Given the difficulty of resisting such temptations over the longer run, a proper concern for the welfare of congressional souls may well be the ultimate argument in favor of term limitations.
James L. Buckley
We all have personal brands and most of us have already left a digital footprint, whether we like it or not. Proper social media use highlights your strengths that may not shine through in an interview or application and gives the world a broader view of who you are. Use it wisely.
Amy Jo Martin
You can’t have force structure without proper training, without proper equipment, without proper leadership, without proper funding to conduct exercises and perform maintenance.

I’m content with what I’ve got from the industry, even though sometimes it seems like I might not get the proper credit.
It’s impossible for everybody to be in sync, even the most proper family.
Andy Garcia
Device makers, especially consumer-focused ones, have been the Achilles’ heel of IoT security. These vendors have often viewed proper security implementations as extra cost, complexity, and time-to-market burdens with an unclear payoff.
Maciej Kranz
You play a certain way for so long, and change is good. So I look forward to change, and I look forward to playing with the proper talent that we were able to put together.
Dwyane Wade
The most common mistakes women make when applying makeup are not applying it in the proper light and not using their hands as blending tools.

Alexander Pope
I want the great masses of my people to take a greater pride in their appearance and to give their hair proper attention.
Madam C. J. Walker
I don’t really have a treasured possession, but I do love my family’s proper old photo album. We all have hundreds of photos on our phones now, but you can’t beat the old albums stuffed with black-and-white wedding photographs and 1970s Polaroids.
Nicola Walker
Developing a diet that is healthful, balanced, and appropriate for your particular caloric needs is easy enough and is absolutely critical to establishing a healthful lifestyle that incorporates proper nutrition, adequate fitness, and mental resilience.
Daphne Oz
If you can get the proper definition of trouble, then we can find out who the real troublemakers are.
Al Sharpton
The body is a great machine, and it knows how to take care of itself. I think more often than not the things we do to our skin or our bodies can hold it back from doing its proper job.
Julia Roberts
It’s not that other countries steal jobs from you guys. It’s your strategy. Distribute the money and things in a proper way.
Jack Ma
Liberty is the proper end and object of authority, and cannot subsist without it; and it is liberty to that which is good, just, and honest.
John Winthrop
In my normal life, I am a private person doing a proper job.
Guy Martin
Man is born a tabula rasa; he must learn how to choose the ends that are proper for him and the means that he must adopt to attain them. All this must be done by his reason.
Murray Rothbard
In all our deeds, the proper value and respect for time determines success or failure.
Malcolm X
I need to feel as if everything is clean and in its proper place before I can even attempt to write one word. At least, that’s what I tell myself. I make the bed, I put away the dishes, maybe I dust, maybe I do the laundry, maybe I go to the post office.
Said Sayrafiezadeh
America has a long history of pride in the military uniform, and the Army has a 362-page directive on proper uniform wear. Included are guidelines that accommodate freedom of religion by outlining what religious attire or jewelry can be worn with the uniform.
Martha McSally
It’s better to think of life as a proper journey with a beginning and an end. Maybe, I can settle for being immortalised on screen.
Douglas Booth
Our communities must demand dignified housing, satisfying jobs, and proper labor conditions; our educational system must be culturally relevant, multi-lingual, and teach our histories. Our value should not be determined by legal records.
Patrisse Cullors
As chief selector, I did my best to pick new talent and give them proper opportunities, as they are the future of Pakistan cricket.
Blacks who lack a proper killing rage are merely victims.
bell hooks
I started comedy as a hobby, really, and it still doesn’t seem like a proper job.
Sara Pascoe
How can our industry better represent the reality of our larger community and provide our next generation a proper example of what they see around them every single day? This representation should also look beyond race and include those of all body types, religion, sexuality, and gender identification.
Adwoa Aboah
Schiaparelli was almost like a pop artist. Even the first sweater had a naive visual impact. You immediately get it, and you love it or you hate it. There’s nothing in between. But she had a proper upbringing, so she also understood about quality and luxury.
Marco Zanini
I’ve always been spiritual but I’ve never had a proper context, and it took me awhile to find the proper context. It’s hard to realize you can have any kind of relationship with God you want… and so I now have a punk rock relationship with God.
Billy Corgan
I don’t think I ever got proper credit about being smart about the game.
Rickey Henderson
Most plays that are missed by the umpire are caused by the umpire not reading those cues early enough and making the proper adjustments.
Jim Evans
On the whole, as we readily acquiesce in the acknowledgment that the field and the cabinet are the proper spheres assigned to our Masters and our Lords, may we also deserve the dignified title and encomium of Mistress and Lady in our kitchens and in our parlours.
Deborah Sampson
I must have been 15 or 16 when I left Antrim Grammar, but I do remember having my first proper kiss when I lived there.
Ricky Whittle
So popular is the naval service the only embarrassment is that men volunteer so rapidly we have to work overtime to give them hardy, adequate housing and proper training.
Josephus Daniels
I had a few stories and longer pieces published, but my first proper novel came in 2003, called ‘Dead I Well May Be.’
Adrian McKinty
Like many other people of my generation, I don’t think I ever really bothered to grow up. I wasn’t ever really a proper teenager until I was about 19, and maybe I got a bit stuck there, because it seemed to go on and on.
Meg Rosoff
You can’t be a proper comic unless you’ve been out on stage and felt the fear.
Johnny Vegas
A proper family diary with everyone’s events and parties in it really helps organise the household.
Anthea Turner
To pass to the deluge, and beyond it, and to come to close quarters with our proper division, the origin of Romance itself is a very debatable subject, or rather it is a subject which the wiser mind will hardly care to debate much.
George Saintsbury
I had this big thing about guitar harmonies. I wanted to be the first to put proper three-part harmonies onto a record. That was an achievement.
Brian May
If what the heart approves conforms to proper patterns, then even if one’s desires are many, what harm would they be to good order?
Xun Kuang
When I’m injured, I eat everything – proper junk. That’s the one thing about being injured so much, I get to treat myself.
Tony McCoy
An instant-read thermometer is your best bet for making sure that meat and fish are cooked to the proper temperature.
Bobby Flay
I had been a basketball fan growing up, and I felt that if we brought in the proper coach, and we played basketball the old fashioned way – where defense is paramount and offense involved movement off the ball and movement of the ball – we could build a winning team, and Chicago would respond to that.
Jerry Reinsdorf
In Serie A players have to stay in a hotel before a home game to ensure proper preparations without the distractions a wife and family can bring. It’s a system which no doubt suits some players, but would not be my choice.
Jaap Stam
I’ve had an addiction for a long time to the whole business of maximizing one’s potential, what I call human activation. The vehicle for actualizing oneself is choice, options, seeking out the proper choices.
Padgett Powell
When you get a good script, and the director gives you proper lines, half your job is done.
Anushka Shetty
I know my body needs to have the proper nutrition so that I can keep kicking at a high level. The same goes with sleep.
Adam Vinatieri
I think the No. 9 will always be in football. You need the proper No. 9s in football; that’s my opinion.
Edin Dzeko
Those things which I am saying now may be obscure, yet they will be made clearer in their proper place.
Nicolaus Copernicus
It is fair to say the New Testament is the most ethically sophisticated of the great scriptures; the proper comparison for the Qur’an is with the Old Testament – against which it holds its own.
Sebastian Faulks
I never had a proper modeling career. It was not something I succeeded in. Once I started acting, that’s when the fashion world kind of embraced me.
Mia Goth
I feel that a lot of human spirituality stems from the belief that we are unique and special in the universe, but maybe we are just what happens when there is proper temperature and proper distance from the right type of star.
Alex Honnold
I am a passionate believer in freedom of speech. I would not support anything which would impinge on aggressive robust freedom of the British press, but when things go wrong and there has been outright illegality, there should be proper accountability.
Nick Clegg
I might have some sort of personality disorder. I might not have proper filters; it might be some kind of version of Asperger’s meets Tourettes meets prose.
Jonathan Ames
God, to me, it seems, is a verb not a noun, proper or improper.
R. Buckminster Fuller
There is no comparison between the life of a rock star and an actor. If I could now, I would be a rock star within a blink of an eye. So as far as music is concerned, yeah, I might just go back to it, but don’t want to be unfair to it. It requires its proper time and space.
Fawad Khan
In my proper character, I am an officer of the United States Army.
Zebulon Pike
I think because Sport Lux has come in and leisure wear is a new thing, girls can sneak in hoodies and leggings and so on where they wouldn’t normally – it has been proper legitimate fashion.
Zoe Foster Blake
The Supreme Court is not elected, and it is therefore not a proper arbiter of social policy.
Lamar S. Smith
Our duty as concerned citizens is to educate ourselves so that we can recognize and report trafficking to the proper authorities.
Chris Hansen
Proper sleep has helped me get to where I am today as an athlete, and it is something that I continue to rely on every day.
Tom Brady
My parents were what I like to call proper musical fans. Lots of Sondheim was played in the car.
Daniel Radcliffe

Miranda Raison
Sadism is all right in its place, but it should be directed to proper ends.
Sigmund Freud
Baseball began early for me. When I was 5, my father took two Little League bats and put them on a lathe. He whittled them down and sanded the bats so they were the proper size for my brother and me. He began by throwing tennis balls to us. Eventually, we practiced hitting and fielding at a field near our house.
Keith Hernandez
The mistake is to think that clever technology can solve everything, but it can’t solve our relationship with nature, which is where I think it’s gone wrong in that we have somehow abandoned our proper connection with nature.
Prince Charles
Since I started CrossFit, I’ve read and heard about the critics talk about how unsafe it is, and my only response to that is any form of exercise can be unsafe if you don’t have the proper coaching, education and guidance.
Bob Harper
When you get back control of your country, you get proper democracy. You get back proper debate.
Nigel Farage
Unlike F. Scott Fitzgerald and Tom Wolfe, I don’t like proper dress while working. I like writing in pajama-like clothing, which eases and relaxes me and allows me to connect with the decidedly improper.
Chang-Rae Lee
It is proper to ask for sorrow with Christ in sorrow, anguish with Christ in anguish, tears and deep grief because of the great affliction Christ endures for me.
Saint Ignatius
One of the responsibilities of Congress is the power of the purse, but there is also oversight. In order to have proper oversight, you have to have agency administrators, directors, and secretaries of those agencies speak frankly and about the facts.
Paul Gosar
It is time we in Scotland put England in its proper place and instead of our leaning on England and taking inspiration from her, we should lean and turn to Europe, for it is there our future prosperity lies.
Hugh MacDiarmid
In international football you have 10 games a season, with players from different clubs. There’s no time for proper coaching; they’re just recovering from playing on the Saturday.
Graham Taylor
As a footballer, it can be enjoyable to do a proper interview where you trust the journalist to reproduce your thoughts.
Diego Forlan
I wanted to find a bridge between Musique Concrete, electro-acoustic music, and proper rock music.
Jean-Michel Jarre
In England and America people tend to graze all day long, but I think it’s such a waste to be constantly picking at food because you then can’t enjoy a proper full meal when the time comes.
Nigella Lawson
The class distinctions proper to a democratic society are not those of rank or money, still less, as is apt to happen when these are abandoned, of race, but of age.
W. H. Auden
No one should be so precious as to refuse criticism of their work. But to respect an opinion, we have to know that it was given honestly and with proper thought.
Joanne Harris
I would have benefited a lot from proper training. I could have done with a strong wake-up call about getting jobs.
Deirdre O’Kane
In the middle of the 20th century, aspirations to sound ‘proper’ were passionately pursued. Dictionaries as late as the Seventies include many pronunciations that could cut the proverbial glass.
Susie Dent
I think we have seen evidence that being brave enough to go abroad can lead to a proper opportunity.
Gareth Southgate
To lose yourself in righteous service to others can lift your sights and get your mind off personal problems, or at least put them in proper focus.
Ezra Taft Benson
I don’t consider Los Angeles home anymore; ultimately, it was pretty negative, but I did spend my formative years in the Valley and all around L.A. proper. Through my teenage years and into my young adulthood, up until the age of 30, I spent a good amount of time there.
Patrick deWitt
In the 1950s, when we went to Lord’s, you had to sit down, and it was very prim and proper. It was only in the 1960s when we started to do well that West Indians started voicing their opinions.
Garfield Sobers
I happen to be one who believes very strongly that state and local governments have their proper roles.
Don Nickles
Consequently he who wishes to attain to human perfection, must therefore first study Logic, next the various branches of Mathematics in their proper order, then Physics, and lastly Metaphysics.
I suffer depression only in the sense that I am a writer. We don’t have proper jobs to go to. We are on our own all day. Show me a writer who doesn’t get depressed: who has a completely stable mood. They’d be a garage mechanic or something.
Mark Haddon
Divorce these days is a religious vow, as if the proper offspring of marriage.
It’s a dream when some people think that once you give your life to God, all of a sudden things are perfect. That’s not the case. We live in a world that’s broken, where there’s disease, where people are selfish. The foundation of your faith helps you know how to put that in proper perspective.
Danny Gokey
The proper means of increasing the love we bear our native country is to reside some time in a foreign one.
William Shenstone
Lucifer likes to have fun, but we need to make sure that he’s also rooted in a proper journey. For the first few episodes after a pilot, you’re just trying to establish your world and the starting points for your characters. But I feel like, as the stakes went up, the ‘Lucifer’ veneer got less and less.
Tom Ellis
Proper British nannies put the child ahead of everything. They do not like to see children used as accessories, carried around in slings for the convenience of the parents’ social life. They want a proper set-up, where the baby is rested and happy, not shown off to all-comers.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
The proper method for inquiring after the properties of things is to deduce them from experiments.
Isaac Newton
It is always possible for the court to overreach its proper bounds and perhaps declare a lot of laws unconstitutional and frustrate the will of the majority in a way that it ought not be frustrated.
William Rehnquist
I no longer believe that just about everything is funny, if viewed from the proper angle.
Tom Perrotta
The first ‘Polly and the Pirates’ is about a prim and proper girl who gets kidnapped out of her comfy boarding school by a bunch of pirates that think she’s the daughter of their long lost queen. In the course of the adventure, she discovers she has a natural penchant for swashbuckling, despite her sheltered childhood.
Ted Naifeh
One might argue that proper understanding of any social situation would require game-theoretic analysis.
John Harsanyi
I’ve been an actor since I was 18. So that’s my proper job. But I was not a very successful actor, if you consider being able to afford your rent successful. I did lots of old people’s tours; reminiscence tours.
Sara Pascoe
If we were all determined to play the first violin we should never have an ensemble. therefore, respect every musician in his proper place.
Robert Schumann
We watch our sons go to war, disagree with the rationale for sending them, loathe the men who ordered them to battle, and then, when the veterans come home, beg and plead with the local V.A. to ensure they have access to proper care.
J. D. Vance
Growing up was very interesting for me. If you were Haitian, people just automatically assumed that English was a second language. So they had a special class for my brother and I, but we spoke proper English.
Karen Civil
Democracy demands that judges confine themselves to a narrow sphere of influence – that is why the late Alexander Bickel called the judiciary the ‘Least Dangerous Branch.’ In a world governed by a proper conception of their role, judges don’t play at being legislators – they leave that job to our elected representatives.
Edwin Meese
A chronicle is very different from history proper.
Howard Nemerov
For me, it’s about moderation and discipline, and that’s something I picked up from my dad. I don’t believe in rigorous workouts but believe in eating right, going to bed early, and getting a proper workout.
Akkineni Nagarjuna
The proper words in the proper places are the true definition of style.
Jonathan Swift
The prerequisite of originality is the art of forgetting, at the proper moment, what we know.
Arthur Koestler
My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.
Arthur Conan Doyle
My dad was a proper old English gentleman, even though he was from the Caribbean. He used to stand up and salute during the Queen’s Christmas speech.
John Barnes
I do not remember any proper children’s books in my childhood. I was not exposed to them.
Maurice Sendak
The Maria Mayer shell model suggestion in 1949 was a great triumph and fitted my belief that a nuclear shell model should represent a proper approach to understanding nuclear structure.
James Rainwater
When a person is humiliated, when his rights are being violated, and he does not have the proper education, naturally he gravitates toward terrorism.
Shirin Ebadi
If the fans want me out, I’ll put my hands up and leave. Like a proper man. I won’t make excuses, I’ll leave.
Paul Gascoigne
Parents are trying to be friends with their kids rather than draw the line and tell them what proper public behavior would be.
Speed and danger don’t always go together, but it’s proper fun when they do.
Guy Martin
Typically, a position change is more for instructional league and winter time. It’s just a more relaxed situation. A player can make some mistakes and learn from them. That’s the proper way to go about a position change, for me.
Ryne Sandberg
Since acquiring major interests in Dole Food Company 28 years ago, educating the public on proper diet has constituted the agenda of the Dole Nutrition Institute.
David H. Murdock
I don’t do much for skin. Just drink water, try to get proper sleep, exercise, sweat it out, keep it moisturised, and most importantly, clean. That’s basically what I do.
Radhika Apte
I support the Volcker rule, but there needs to be proper definitions around the Volcker rule so that banks can understand exactly what they can do and what they can’t do, and that they can provide the necessary function of liquidity in customer markets.
Steve Mnuchin
My captaincy model was characterised by two distinctive pillars. Proper identification of talent and then ensuring the young finds play fearless cricket.
Sourav Ganguly
Getting Richard Norris his new face wasn’t easy. For starters, doctors needed a donor who wasn’t just a favorable blood match but also had the proper skeletal features and skin color – they calculated only a 14 percent chance they’d find one. Then there was the epic surgery that took a team of 150 people.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
There might be a proper age to know how to tell a story, but there’s no proper age to start telling them.
Xavier Dolan
When it comes to social consequences, they’ve got all different people acting in different ways, very difficult to even have a proper criterion of success. So, it’s a difficult task.
George Soros
Pate a choux is a mixture of simple ingredients – flour, water, milk, eggs – but the proper technique is essential. Unlike other doughs, the pastry is pre-cooked on the stovetop before being enriched with eggs, piped, and baked.
Claire Saffitz
If I’m not working on music, I’m usually with my friends playing FIFA. We just kick back – I’m proper chilled.
No; we have been as usual asking the wrong question. It does not matter a hoot what the mockingbird on the chimney is singing. The real and proper question is: Why is it beautiful?
Bertrand Russell
The proper method for hastening the decay of error is by teaching every man to think for himself.
William Godwin
Life is a perspective and for me, if a human being has access to school, clean water, food, proper health care, that is the basis of human rights.
Gelila Bekele
This is bad for policy-making – if you cover up the problems, how can you solve them? It also corrodes public trust. Government must be much more honest about the challenges facing the country, if we are to begin to tackle them. Short-term spin must give way to proper long-term strategic thinking.
Dominic Grieve
I guess the nicest thing about being, I won’t say famous but being popular is a more proper word for me to use would be that if you’ve got a recognizable name, a lot of times you can get people to do things for you ordinarily that you wouldn’t get done.
Mickey Gilley
The proper care and rearing of a child is integral to their development. It breaks my heart to know that some children’s futures are being destroyed within their own homes.
Lawrence Jackson
When I was younger I just played football for the fun of it, scoring the maddest goals and trying to come up with new tricks but when you’ve got to take yourself into a proper match, you’ve got be serious.
Alex Iwobi
This profession, I don’t know why, you’re supposed to be so serious and just be so proper.
Lane Kiffin
When we were writing the ‘Stage’ album, we realized we’d never really done proper covers, where we were taking songs and making them our own and kind of playing around with them. I came up with the idea of doing a cover of ‘Wish You Were Here,’ but we didn’t really want it on the record.
M. Shadows
Because there is no cosmic point to the life that each of us perceives on this distant bit of dust at the galaxy’s edge… there is all the more reason for us to maintain in proper balance what we have here. Because there is nothing else. No thing. This is it. And quite enough, all in all.
Gore Vidal
I reserve the right to survey the national political landscape for candidates at all levels who reflect a proper understanding of our national security, economic security, and family security – the ideals of social conservation, the heart and strength of our country.
Jeff Fortenberry
The best thing about a British winter is the cold weather, real fires, frosty mornings. I love living somewhere that has proper seasons.
Jane Fallon
Quite naturally, the men who led in stirring up the revolt against Great Britain and in keeping the fighting temper of the Revolutionists at the proper heat were the boldest and most radical thinkers – men like Samuel Adams, Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, and Thomas Jefferson.
Charles A. Beard
I personally really like getting a proper album with artwork and everything.
Chris Martin
Does a black person make them an African American? No. There are Hispanics that are very, very dark skinned so the word has lost its meaning, it’s not a very concise or proper word to use even today and it wasn’t then.
Pam Grier
Nashville is wicked. It’s like a proper music community, but it’s also quintessentially American. You bump into people there with cowboy hats that spit in jars and call you ‘boy.’ I just love that.
Ed Sheeran
Every dressing room should have a few proper bottles of bubbly.
Tony Vincent
Life itself is the proper binge.
Julia Child
Cameron’s resignation really was the death knell of the Conservative Party as we knew it because that’s something a proper Conservative politician cannot do: renounce leadership at the moment when it’s needed.
Roger Scruton
A song doesn’t happen as a whole verse; it happens linearly, line by line, almost word by word, phrase by phrase. And if each phrase, each line, has a proper emotional feel and connects to the line before it and the line after it, the song will be doing what it should be doing.
Robert Hunter
Chris Messina is amazing, and he’s so serious – he’s, like, a proper actor! He’s got craft! I love to watch him. But not in a creepy way.
Ed Weeks
The Web is fascinating and transformative, but it’s an easy, flashy, get-rich-quick option to the hard graft of proper industry.
James Dyson
I could never turn to a guy and a girl and ask, ‘Are you going steady?’ That was absolutely a no-no – it was the Eisenhower period, and no parent wanted their kid going steady, so it wasn’t a thing that you could endorse as proper behavior on the air.
Dick Clark
I’ve established myself as a proper artist. And it’s ridiculous when anyone questions my credibility – I’ve had four number one singles and I’ve also sold over two and a half million albums. I shouldn’t have to convince people that I’m credible, but I’m glad people are now taking me more seriously.
Olly Murs
Therefore God is one, if that which admits of so great power can be nothing else: and yet those who deem that there are many gods, say that they have divided their functions among themselves; but we will discuss all these matters at their proper places.
You are the master of your environment. You’ve got your own head, your own mind. So once you figure out what you want for yourself, you have to create the proper environment to make sure you can live out all the things you want.
Tyrese Gibson
We must then build a proper relationship between the richest and the poorest countries based on our desire that they are able to fend for themselves with the investment that is necessary in their agriculture, so that Africa is not a net importer of food, but an exporter of food.
Gordon Brown
To state that lethal force should not be used without a proper legal justification is to state the obvious.
Keir Starmer
It’s the duty of the federations to make sure that the funds reach the athletes properly. They need to make sure that the athletes get proper facilities so that they can win the medals for the country.
Virender Sehwag
I never quite envisioned myself a proper doctor under that white coat, but I was interested in the idea of healing and in the psychological dimension rather early on.
Robert Jay Lifton
Marriage, it seems, confines every man to his proper rank.
Jean de la Bruyere
It is proper to take photographs or other kinds of pictures of persons to put them before us for sight or remembrance. But it is improper to make pictures and images of God and to take his likenesses therefrom to his great distortion.
Dayananda Saraswati
My mother always cooked, every day, proper food. We didn’t have fast food. It was probably pretty much meat and two veg, but as time went on and new things came into the culture, she embraced all of that. I grew up with mealtimes and sitting around the table with proper cooking and eating.
Lesley Manville
Facetiousness is allowable when it is the most proper instrument of exposing things apparently base and vile to due contempt.
Isaac Barrow
Proper exercise and a balanced diet help you lose weight quickly.
Koel Mallick
I am not interested in doing a film on the basis of a good story. I want a proper screenplay.
Aishwarya Rajesh
I was in fashion school, my brother has a law background, and my sister-in-law had worked in production, but none of us had a proper fashion business education.
Alexander Wang
By the proper intakes of vitamins and other nutrients and by following a few other healthful practices from youth or middle age on, you can, I believe, extend your life and years of well-being by twenty-five or even thirty-five years.
Linus Pauling
I have the fault of being a little more sincere than is proper.
With the proper motivation, you can do anything. I was just a poor kid that ate pork and beans out of a can and apple sauce. I went from rags to riches. But it does take a lot of determination, inner strength, drive, and discipline.
Lee Haney
When I swapped studying for a wage and a proper job, Mam and Dad were devastated. I was rejecting an opportunity they never had. But their eldest son, at 16, wanted only to follow his father down the pit. It was to be the biggest education of my life.
Dennis Skinner
In the summer of 1997, a little more than half a lifetime ago, I got my first proper summer job. The job, with one of the many branches of Canada’s federal government in Ottawa, covered the entire tuition for my sophomore year of college.
Sarah Weinman
I don’t think a Jewish or Christian or Islamic state is a proper concept. I would object to the United States as a Christian state.
Noam Chomsky
God gave us faculties for our use; each of them will receive its proper reward. Then do not let us try to charm them to sleep, but permit them to do their work until divinely called to something higher.
Saint Teresa of Avila
In trials of fact, by oral testimony, the proper inquiry is not whether is it possible that the testimony may be false, but whether there is sufficient probability that it is true.
Simon Greenleaf
CrossFit really teaches the basics and fundamentals of proper mechanical movement.
Seth Rollins
I was super brainy and a proper geek at school, but there would always be a boy. But that sort of obsession did turn me into a songwriter. My writing has always come from that feeling of infatuation.
Ellie Goulding
A good stance and posture reflect a proper state of mind.
Morihei Ueshiba
I think with something like ‘Watchmen’ you can genuinely call that a graphic novel because it has the weight and the intent of a proper novel and it also is the complete story.
Dave Gibbons
I have to prioritize: father first, and then a pastor and a recording artist and entrepreneur. I try to put everything in proper perspective, and then the proper priority.
Marvin Sapp
I consider myself to be very correct and proper: an upright citizen.
Sebastian Horsley
I’m not a manufactured artist. Nobody taught me how to be a proper artist.
He only seems to me to live, and to make proper use of life, who sets himself some serious work to do, and seeks the credit of a task well and skillfully performed.
The big risk to British lives in 2013 is in Afghanistan. Our troops, diplomats and aid workers have made a big contribution there. But while there is an end date for Western engagement, 2014, there isn’t a proper end game.
David Miliband
There are some who invoke separation of church and state – to try to get the government out of the business of morality – but this is antithetical to what the founders wanted. The founders wanted to keep theology out of government so that government could focus on the proper business of morality.
Dinesh D’Souza
I worked for a company called Population Services International, a social marketing company advocating healthy behaviors. We had a big branding campaign with celebrities to help educate about the proper use of mosquito nets, for example, to help prevent malaria.
Yvonne Orji
I make very proper clothes. But I was never that person. For a long time, I thought that was the image I needed to have for my brand. And I thought that’s the person that I needed to be. Because it gave me a distinct image that no one can deny.
Jason Wu
I started making some proper decisions, getting things in order. It’s kind of like cleaning up your house. I was looking for direction for what God wanted me to do – and that’s when I got a call about The Passion.
Scott Stapp
While in the Florida legislature, I strongly opposed the Stand Your Ground law because I believed it would provide defenses to people who had created the scenarios they sought protection from. Or it would leave juries without the proper rules of engagement that ought govern predictable human interactions.
Dan Gelber
If you are at the top in entertainment, you earn money that you can never justify to ordinary people doing proper jobs. You can’t.
Gary Lineker
People don’t buy horses to ride around any more for transportation. I just think the world changes. As a business, we have to make the proper adjustments.
Troy Carter
I used to have a pony but I outgrew it and I do dream that one day I will live in the country and have lots of horses and be like a proper English lady who goes hunting and everything.
Georgia May Jagger
I had some proper training, but that was only on snare drum. Learning all the techniques in marching bands and realizing how important it is to play tight set a standard for me for when I did get into a band.
Vinnie Paul
In order to be totally spontaneous, you can’t be too obsessed with accuracy, but if you’re inaccurate in a drawing, it will look fake, and when you act, it will sound fake. You have to find miraculously some proper balance between the two, but there’s no formula.
Peter Falk
I think the astute viewer can recognise I am the proper bloke, because I have a toolbox and can put things back together, and I can quote W. B. Yeats and Alfred Lord Tennyson.
James May
My house feels like a proper home. It’s very relaxed with a hippyish vibe.
Cat Deeley
While maintaining our nuclear potential at the proper level, we need to devote more attention to developing the entire range of means of information warfare.
Boris Yeltsin
When children do not have three square meals a day, a proper education, and at least one adult who they know loves and is committed to them, it’s very unlikely they will grow up to be productive citizens of the world.
Stephanie March
When my work gets crazy, I make sure to always have vitamins, water and proper food with me. That has helped me to lose 33 pounds.
Carnie Wilson
Look at our farmers’ markets today, bursting with heritage breeds and heirloom varieties, foods that were once abundant when we were an agricultural nation, but that we have lost touch with. Bringing all these back helps us connect to our roots, our communities and helps us feed America the proper way.
Jose Andres
I got my first football when I was two and played my first proper game before I was five. So nothing else was ever an option!
Manuel Neuer
Now Herod was an active man, and soon found proper materials for his active spirit to work upon.
Flavius Josephus
With proper acting, I don’t know what I would play – I got sent a script for a play, and it said in the notes that my proposed character was ‘hideously fat and ugly’. That made my day. I mean, I do know I am no oil painting.
Jo Brand
From a very young age my mother persuaded me that I could write for fun, but I had to have a proper job – very good advice.
Joanne Harris
When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives.
Ezra Taft Benson
Declare Church and State forever separate and distinct, but each free within their proper spheres, and that all church property shall bear its own proportion of taxation.
Ulysses S. Grant
At Reliance Foundation schools, we lay special emphasis on value-based education, sports, and overall development of students. That is why the teacher-students ratio is kept at a healthy 1:20 so that all children get proper attention in class.
Nita Ambani
Whatever the reason is, I hope we can finish talking about the Olympics. It’s gone, it’s behind us. The schedule wasn’t proper for players who went there and there is some fatigue in a lot guys’ play right now.
Saku Koivu
What is the appropriate behavior for a man or a woman in the midst of this world, where each person is clinging to his piece of debris? What’s the proper salutation between people as they pass each other in this flood?
I have no proper money to invest!
Deirdre O’Kane
Economy consists in a due and proper application of the means afforded according to the ability of the employer and the situation chosen; care being taken that the expenditure is prudently conducted.
Whether it’s possible or not, being a doctor, you take an oath. To care for your patient, not to kill them. You take an oath to do things that are proper in the medical world. Not to administer something outside of a hospital setting that’s not even your area.
Jermaine Jackson
It is not proper to project our feelings onto things or to attribute our own sensations and passions to them. Can it also be improper to see in them a guide, a way of life?
Octavio Paz
To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.
Mary Oliver
Our parents were very prim and proper, but we always got one toy every day. That was a ritual. The money didn’t really matter.
Atif Aslam
No man is sane who does not know how to be insane on proper occasions.
Henry Ward Beecher
Equally important to having the right content is providing the proper tools for the users so they can quickly find the images and videos they need.
Jon Oringer
We’ve sung to prerecorded tracks and things like that, but we’ve never done a proper world tour with a band and everything.
Keren Woodward
I always wanted to get into proper shape.
Luke Evans
I want to beat up Michael Fassbender in a movie. I was with him at the beginning of his career when he did an episode of ‘Murphy’s Law.’ He’s a proper superstar and enormously talented, but I want to do a scene where I properly duff him up.
James Nesbitt
Go for the girl who can eat a proper meal. If she’s passionate about food, you’ll most likely be fortunate in other venues.
Liz Vassey
Proper Sabbath is Sabbath with Bill Ward. I’m sorry, it just is.
Joey Jordison
‘The Piano Lesson’ is very sophisticated, easily the most adult or complex material I’ve attempted. It’s the first film I’ve written that has a proper story, and it was a big struggle for me to write. It meant I had to admit the power of narrative.
Jane Campion
I am a control freak. I want everything to be prim and proper.
Nikita Dutta
I should like to know what is the proper function of women, if it is not to make reasons for husbands to stay at home, and still stronger reasons for bachelors to go out.
George Eliot
I’ve wanted to design golf courses ever since I was a kid. I suppose it comes from the way I’ve played the game. To find the proper way to play any hole, I’ve always begun by asking myself what the architect has tried to do with it.
Jack Nicklaus
Along with enough sleep and taking proper supplements, I steam – in my steam shower. I find it’s very healing, more than just your typical ‘tea and honey.’
Idina Menzel
You know the only people who are always sure about the proper way to raise children? Those who’ve never had any.
Bill Cosby
I know what I have to do if I want to lose weight and stay healthy: eat a proper diet and exercise. All I’ve got to do is apply it.
John Candy
The mission of the Secret Service (to keep the president of the United States safe and secure) is, by its very nature, pivotal to the proper functioning of the country, and any failure to accomplish this mission has the potential to cause an immediate international crisis.
Dan Bongino
A strained hamstring is a muscle tear and very easy to take care of with proper therapy. The greatest problem for a sprinter coming back from a hamstring injury is getting yourself to a point where you are confident mentally that all the muscles are going to be firing.
Donovan Bailey
