They’re really rare.

Simon Mainwaring

Latinos are the fastest growing minority, and we’re obviously not going anywhere. We’re extremely loyal as a people, and I think Hollywood is starting to recognize that.

The close of my studies with a degree of a Dr. Ing. in 1929 coincided with the great economic crisis, and I was not able to find an academic position.

The rare case where the conquered is very satisfied with the conqueror.
Konrad Adenauer

Salma Hayek
I’m an absolute fan of Angela Bassett. I think she’s a great, great actress. In the biopics, she is so moving. She’s very rare. It’s something that doesn’t happen that much, to see an actress inventing a new way of showing ‘woman’ onscreen, and a new way of being beautiful.
Arnaud Desplechin
Growing up, I was always enthralled by Ronnie Barker. He made my dad howl with laughter, which always intrigued me, and he had the rare gift of being as good a performer as he was a writer.
Dominic Holland
Committing unnecessary surgeries is very, very rare. And it’s very wrong.
H. G. Bissinger
I’m without a doubt a producer first. The lyrics happen towards the tail-end of the process, mainly because they’re more stream-of-consciousness. It’s very rare that I’m going to tell a really concrete story.

Domo Genesis
Vaccines have played a fundamental role in eradicating terrible illnesses such as polio, diphtheria, and hepatitis.

Beppe Grillo
A ‘serious’ scientist in 1992 or 1993 had to admit the possibility that planets were really rare, that most stars might not have planets. We’ve gone from there to here – where most stars have planets.
Debra Fischer
It’s rare, in my opinion, that we get to see someone who is in his late thirties, with a wife and children who he has to support, realizing that what he is doing is not fulfilling him in a way that he really wants. He knows what will and he goes after it.
Tiya Sircar
Icy and earthy, Helen Mirren is a rare, regal presence in a movie age that values the plebeian over the patrician and mass over class. Lauded with an Oscar and an Emmy for playing both Queen Elizabeths, Mirren has matched her cool aristocracy with a boldness of performance and display.
Richard Corliss
‘Purampokku’ was one of those rare films made just like it was narrated.

Lafcadio Hearn
Whether looking at pop music, hip-hop or R&B, it’s rare to find an artist who hasn’t been touched or affected by the power and soul of gospel music. In fact, many of today’s popular artists such as Whitney Houston, John Legend, and Katy Perry started their careers in the church choir.
Marvin Sapp
It is not that the child lives in a world of imagination, but that the child within us survives and starts into life only at rare moments of recollection, which makes us believe, and it is not true, that, as children, we were imaginative?

It is rare for an artist to get acceptance by the north as well as the south audiences, and I have thankfully managed that.

I actually had someone say to me, ‘Lynn, you’re going to have very good days, and you’re going to have very bad days. But It’s rare that things are as good as they look, and it’s rare that things are as bad as they seem.’ So having perspective, and challenging perspective, is important to making good decisions.

Michael Eisner
Thought is a strenuous art – few practice it, and then only at rare times.

It’s rare enough as an older generation player that you’re 100% fit – there’s always something niggling.
Brian O’Driscoll
I think true connectivity is something that is rare in sequels. I mean I love the first ‘Die Hard’ film; you won’t find a bigger ‘Die Hard’ fan than me. But I feel like with the sequels, they’re just taking that character and dropping him in different scenarios. There’s no real connective tissue.
Leigh Whannell
Despite the fact that one in every two men and one in every three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, no one ever expects it to happen to them. I surely didn’t.

Dylan McDermott
It’s very rare that publications double their frequency.
James Daly

Emily Rios
I always like Madonna; any Madonna song is good for me. Old school Janet Jackson is always good. I usually go old school. It’s very rare that I pick a song from nowadays.

Matt McGorry
It’s really rare to come across a character, a show, or a movie that allows you to completely play four or five different characters within a season, let alone a week.
Omari Hardwick
I think mental illness or madness can be an escape also. People don’t develop a mental illness because they are in the happiest of situations, usually. One doctor observed that it was rare when people were rich to become schizophrenic. If they were poor or didn’t have too much money, then it was more likely.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
By rationing in-person meetings, their stature is elevated to that of a rare treat. They become something to be savored, something special.

It is very rare that I am just coming up with melodies off the top of my head. I usually am responding to something – it could be chains dragging on the floor – but I am usually responding to something.
James Corden is a rare entertainment force who combines irresistible charm, warmth, and originality with a diverse range of creative instincts and performance talent.

Larry Charles
I’m the sort of person who would be perfectly happy spending an entire day in a rare books room.
Marie Rutkoski
I never wanted to be a part of the industry, as I had no knowledge about it. I am one of those rare and really lucky people for whom the calling identified me and not the other way around.
I’ve been in movies where the movie doesn’t come together but the role comes together, or the movie comes together but the role doesn’t come together or something like that. Something misses. It’s very difficult to make it hit on all cylinders – it’s just very rare.
Nick Nolte
It’s rare to find an Indian who speaks Chinese. It’s rare to find a Chinese who can speak any of the Indian languages. Neither of them at the trading level – I want to repeat this, at the trading level – can speak English, either.
Shiv Nadar
Finding out about Bjork was like finding out about some rare and magical thing that I had never encountered living where I was living at the time, being surrounded by the people I was surrounded by.

Carol Kane
It’s very rare I’ll watch anything I’m a part of and think, ‘I wouldn’t change a thing.’
Chris Harrison
Most politicians are either generalists or specialists. It’s very rare that a politician is both.
Margrethe Vestager
The other thing is that doctors test only the most common estrogen level. There are three kinds of estrogen in a woman but they don’t test the other two because they are so rare; mine was the third kind of estrogen.
Marie Osmond
It’s very rare to be able to do a show where the most important thing is being funny.
Natasia Demetriou
We have a rare and perhaps small window of opportunity to set partisan differences aside, and attempt to achieve what many in recent years have felt was unreachable – greater retirement security for ourselves and our children.

Dana Reeve
It’s pretty rare in jazz to have a full-on steady band.
Kurt Elling
I’ve come to a real understanding of the enormity of what owner entrepreneurs do in founding great businesses. They are rare and a thing of art in many ways.
Steve Young
For me, the things that are luxurious are things that are rare. It’s not really about how much something costs or whether it’s ‘limited edition’; it’s about how special it is.
I respect people who feel things passionately. I do. But when someone is a judge, that is not what they should bring to the bench. It is not really passion, except in rare instances, that serves the bench well. It is, rather, an ability to understand the law and follow it.
Chuck Schumer
Many gold and silver experts will recommend you buy numismatic coins – rare and old coins. If you are not a rare coin expert, I’d encourage you to stay away from them. New investors often pay too much for rare coins that are not really rare.
Robert Kiyosaki
The disease I have is quite a rare cancer, and it is located in a limited area – a very widespread area, but narrow. So a lot can happen if the cancer starts getting really aggressive, pressing on parts of the brain and causing me to lose either my speech or my ability to think, etc.
Valerie Harper
Ideally, you have a company of actors who care more about the product than they do about themselves. In my experience, actors who believe the opposite – that they are the people who matter rather than the show – are rare in the extreme.

Great books are rare.
Ian Hacking
It’s a rare combination to have someone who can write songs and sing well.
If your doctor tells you you have a rare disease that he or she has never seen, if you’ve got an incurable cancer, boy, don’t accept that. You know, go and get a second opinion.
Hamilton Jordan
It’s very rare for me to come across a script for NYMF that is truly its own animal. That’s really what appealed to me about ‘Valueville.’ I still have my notes from when I first read it.
Donna Lynne Champlin
Lawsuits are rare and catastrophic experiences for the vast majority of men, and even when the catastrophe ensues, the controversy relates most often not to the law, but to the facts. In countless litigations, the law Is so clear that judges have no discretion.
Benjamin N. Cardozo
If we looked in the world of 1945 and looked at the map of capitalist economies and democratic polities, they were the rare exception, not the norm.
Ashraf Ghani

M. Jayachandran
It’s very rare that people are exactly who they appear to be.

Seth Shostak
The rule seems to be that there are no absolutes, that what is rare is prized. Thus, in times of relative affluence, thin models become dominant.

My mom has a rare talent for being able to open up the refrigerator, and with the peas, the leftover eggs, the cream, the spinach, the cheese, and a little rice, she can just whip up incredible risotto.
Cote de Pablo
Its rare to see a proud and out LGBT person win an Oscar in a lead or supporting actor role.
Karamo Brown
The type of Alzheimer’s Dad has is rare – posterior cortical atrophy or PCA – and it affects his spatial awareness and the way he judges distance. His first symptoms were erratic typing and spelling, but to talk to him, you’d never know there was a problem.
Rhianna Pratchett
I think the audience is getting it right, you know what I mean? And that’s kind of rare when the artist feels like their audience understand them. But I feel like people are understanding exactly what I’m going for. And that’s awesome.
One of the challenges of being a director is often you don’t get to work with your peers. You know, writers can write together, and as a director you get to work with so many wonderful actors and writers and designers. But it’s pretty rare that you get a chance to partner in that way with another director.
Thomas Kail
It’s rare for anyone to value the opinions of a teenage girl.
Billie Eilish
I feel it’s so rare that young females are portrayed as being anything more than a stereotype.
Diana Silvers
Bailouts may have been more tolerable in the early 1990s when they were rare and their use for a failing bank was uncertain. That is no longer the case.
Jerome Powell
For an actor, to go to work every day is a really rare occurrence. You may work on a film for three months max, and then you’re off, so you have to find another job and then work another three months.
Boyd Holbrook
Good news is rare these days, and every glittering ounce of it should be cherished and hoarded and worshipped and fondled like a priceless diamond.
Hunter S. Thompson
Take the crocodile, for example, my favorite animal. There are 23 species. Seventeen of those species are rare or endangered. They’re on the way out, no matter what anyone does or says, you know.
Steve Irwin
It’s rare for artists to really stare deeply at themselves in the mirror, literally, because there’s constantly a mirror on you.
Omari Hardwick
It’s great when it all comes together in a great musical like ‘Sweeney Todd,’ when Stephen Sondheim writes songs from heaven, the book is good and the staging is good. But it’s very rare when that happens.
Dennis DeYoung
So many people have been abused. It’s not rare; it’s a very common human experience, and we survive.
India Arie
I usually have a hard time with the fit of off-the-rack suits, thanks to my athletic proportions, but somehow Burberry always fits me perfectly. There’s no tailoring really required, which is rare for me.
Henrik Lundqvist
Christmas is a rare occasion when we are reminded that we have obligations to people we did not choose to be related to, and that love is not just a spontaneous feeling but something we sometimes really have to work at, with people we may not even much like.
Julian Baggini
If it’s well written and well directed and you’ve got good actors to work with, acting is easy. But making sure all the ducks are in a row is the hard part. It’s very rare.
John Lithgow
The presidential and vice-presidential debates are those rare moments when people come together, but to even call them debates is a stretch because they’re played by such negotiated rules, and they’re so over-rehearsed.
Morgan Neville
In spite of overwhelming evidence, it is most difficult for a citizen of western Europe to bring thoroughly home to himself the truth that the civilisation which surrounds him is a rare exception in the history of the world.
Henry James Sumner Maine
Plenty of entrepreneurs can start a company. What is more rare is to evolve it and to scale with it over time.
Andy Dunn
It’s rare that there’s a role that requires an Australian accent.
Heath Ledger
Pentagon not only has the untrainable ‘It’ factor but also the rare ability to adapt and succeed wherever he competes. He has a unique charisma about him that fans connect with, and regardless of where he competes or what style is prominent, he seamlessly blends in – yet stands apart from everyone else on the card.
Kenny Omega
A rare experience of a moment at daybreak, when something in nature seems to reveal all consciousness, cannot be explained at noon. Yet it is part of the day’s unity.
Charles Ives
Botanists have a tradition of never revealing the exact location of a rare plant. Contact between humans and rare plants is generally risky for the plants.
Richard Preston
Any feeling that I was enriching my mind from those surrounding me was unfortunately rare with me.
Georg Brandes
Rare is the election campaign that truly hinges on a single issue.
Anne Applebaum
I don’t want to big myself up, but goals like mine leave a mark on history because they’re rare.
Olivier Giroud
‘Wings’ offered me the rare opportunity to be a full-time dad and a working actor for eight years.
Tim Daly
I know it’s a rare privilege, but if one can really tackle something in adult life that means that much to you, then it’s more rewarding than anything I can imagine.
Andrew Wiles
There are not that many people who can say they have been on a show long enough to leave it. Usually, you don’t have a choice. The show gets canceled. There are very few people who live in the rare air of being able to leave a show while it is still in production.
Rocky Carroll
Things that are unique and rare will cost a lot of money. Houses in East Hampton and Malibu will cost a lot of money because there just aren’t that many of them. The value of sports has appreciated because it’s the only thing that people have to watch live.
John Skipper
There are some times when I think acting can be a noble profession. And when those rare roles come along, like ‘Down to the Bone,’ you have the opportunity to be of service.
Vera Farmiga
It’s rare that a character film is easy to fund.
Patty Jenkins
I was accorded the opportunity to learn by failing – albeit at the cost of a few honourable teachers’ sanity – and now I realise what a rare and incredible luxury that is.
Arabella Weir
Everyone wants to be paid well – I know that I certainly do. But there are lots of other satisfactions that we get from our work. To feel needed. To feel accomplishment. To believe that our work matters. Being a lawyer gives you a rare chance to experience that kind of success.
Jeffrey Toobin
Perfect health, like perfect beauty, is a rare thing; and so, it seems, is perfect disease.
Peter Latham
Any time you have an opportunity to do something for the first time, it’s super exciting, and I just want to soak up everything, and each experience… just to say that you’ve represented your country at the Olympics, it’s such a rare opportunity.
Maya Moore
I think it’s really rare to see women on television who are brilliant, selfish, vain, fallible – and I feel like I have all those capacities in myself, so it’s good to see people in the media representing all of those things.
Kerry Bishe
Good characters are rare. As long as I find one or two a year, I’m happy.
Ludivine Sagnier
I love covers because there’s just something I love about replicating someone else’s music or taking rare music and introducing it to a wider or a new audience.
Sharon Needles
It’s pretty rare for them to not be in our fridge, I have usually a good supply of all-beef hot dogs.
Joey Chestnut
Architecture is a rare collective profession: it’s always exercised by groups. There is an essential modesty, which is a complete contradiction to the notion of a star.
Rem Koolhaas
One of the myths about Dad was that he was mean. That simply wasn’t true. I always found him generous to a fault but he wasn’t reckless with his money, which was rather rare in Hollywood. He’d grown up with nothing and he wasn’t about to fritter it all away.
Jennifer Grant
Around age 40 I put on twenty pounds. I had always had a perfect metabolism. But, my metabolism betrayed me as it does most people, except a very rare few who will always be thin.
Suzanne Somers
I… now see a rare opportunity to push across the goal line much of the unfinished business of America: investing in our infrastructure and workers, universal healthcare, comprehensive immigration reform and scrubbing a tax code that’s out of shape and behind the times.
Xavier Becerra
Only in the most unusual cases is it useful to determine whether a book is good or bad; for it is just as rare for it to be one or the other. It is usually both.
Robert Musil
On rare occasions one does hear of a miraculous case of a married couple falling in love after marriage, but on close examination it will be found that it is a mere adjustment to the inevitable.
Emma Goldman
It’s rare in satirical comedy not just to be cynical.
Josh Widdicombe
The best times I had on film sets were the times the director let me express myself, but those were rare.
Mara Wilson
It’s a rare film that has staying power. ‘A Christmas Story’ is not just a funny movie but something that connects with people.
Peter Billingsley
To me, the #1 key to success is ‘creating lasting positive change in yourself and others.’ That is what is most rare, most difficult, and most valuable about leading people.
Marshall Goldsmith
If you can speak what you will never hear, if you can write what you will never read, you have done rare things.
Henry David Thoreau
It’s rare for a startup to make money immediately, so you need to make sure that you have enough saved or that you have another income stream that can support you.
Richard Branson
It’s a rare thing when you read a role and have this immediate ownership over it, you have this take and this connection, and it’s not even that you feel that you’re gonna do a good job, it’s that you feel like you’ve found it. It fits, it’s natural; it’s like putting on a good shoe or something.
Fran Kranz
Be honest. Be honest with yourself, be honest with, you know, your fellow politicians. This is a rare quality of politicians.
Ma Ying-jeou
Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it.
Emily Dickinson
I think it’s very rare that you see girl friendships on television. It’s always cattiness and all that drama.
Lyndsy Fonseca
In deference to American traditions, my family put our oven to rare use at Thanksgiving during my childhood, with odd roast-turkey experiments involving sticky-rice stuffing or newfangled basting techniques that we read about in magazines.
Jennifer Lee
Going to war is a rare experience in American culture, so it’s easy for simple notions to gain a lot of weight. The reality is always more complex.
Phil Klay
There are franchise players to build around that have championship-level talent, skill, basketball IQ, and character – it’s hard to find those guys. Those guys are rare.
Jeff Van Gundy
The truth of the matter is, beauty is a specific thing, rare and fleeting. Some of us have it in our teens, 20s and 30s and then lose it; most of us have it not at all. And that’s perfectly okay. But lying to yourself that you have it when you don’t seems to me simple-minded at best and psychotic at worst.
Julie Burchill
It’s far too rare an experience for Asian American girls to see themselves in media.
Jenny Han
A garden is a complex of aesthetic and plastic intentions; and the plant is, to a landscape artist, not only a plant – rare, unusual, ordinary or doomed to disappearance – but it is also a color, a shape, a volume or an arabesque in itself.
Roberto Burle Marx
It’s rare that you cut out something that is really good. You screen all of it, and when the audience doesn’t respond, you cut out whatever is holding the story down.
Keenen Ivory Wayans
It’s rare to have even half-meaningful conversations in the film industry.
Amber Heard
I find it funny how at British festivals there are such inflated egos. It’s rare that I even talk to anyone at a lot of them.
Ben Howard
TV shows and movies are a rare form of atemporality, and in an ever-changing, always-on world, spoilers feel irrefutable – sheer access to them gives the illusion of control.
Jenna Wortham
We know too little about how life began on Earth to lay confident odds. It may have involved a fluke so rare that it happened only once in the entire galaxy. On the other hand, it may have been almost inevitable, given the right environment.
Martin Rees
It’s pretty rare to have CEOs or high level executives at big companies who are social activists. They tend not to be drawn to those areas of life.
Jerry Greenfield
When a woman drinks it’s as if an animal were drinking, or a child. Alcoholism is scandalous in a woman, and a female alcoholic is rare, a serious matter. It’s a slur on the divine in our nature.
Marguerite Duras
I grew up in financially straitened circumstances and meat, which was expensive, was a rare thing at mealtimes. We ate meat about once a month, if that.
Neel Mukherjee
Ditko isn’t a direct influence, but I really admire his work and how his personality always comes through the drawing. There’s a honest and quirky humanity to it, and you always feel the artist behind the comic. That’s really rare.
Cliff Chiang
It’s rare to see a person of colour in a lead role. It does matter to a lot of people.
Alesha Dixon
I am a rare occasion. I think if everyone had known it was going be me who succeeded, they would have supported me a lot more. They would have known what to do with me a lot earlier. They just didn’t know.
CeeLo Green
I can’t complain. I’m making a living out of what I do, which is really rare for a lot of actors. The hard part is staying confident and staying with it.
Morena Baccarin
There is no question that the benefits of a permanent, robust trading partnership between the U.S. and the E.U. are a rare example of a win-win for both parties.
Joe Kaeser
We’re brought up to believe in a fairytale-romance sort of way that true love is out there and true loves don’t care about what you look like and stuff, just what’s down inside. And that’s probably true, but what’s also true, sadly, is that true loves are very rare and very hard to find.
Mark Waid
When works of art are presented like rare butterflies on the walls, they’re decontextualized. We admire their beauty, and I have nothing against that, per se. But there is more to art than that.
Hans Haacke
Very few negotiations are begun and concluded in the same sitting. It’s really rare. In fact, If you sit down and actually complete your negotiation in one sitting, you left stuff on the table.
Christopher Voss
Hard work opens doors and shows the world that you are serious about being one of those rare – and special – human beings who use the fullness of their talents to do their very best.
Robin S. Sharma
It is rare that you read scripts that genuinely move you and make you feel that, regardless of the commercial possibilities, you have to make the film.
Eric Fellner
In New York, everybody looks great and is well dressed, but seeing someone in Ohio wearing Marc Jacobs is like spotting an owl in Central Park. Rare.
Isabel Gillies
For many years, people have encouraged me to share my story. Prince was loved the world over, but few knew him intimately. And ours was a rare, almost otherworldly connection.
Mayte Garcia
It was a very rare moment in Japan after the Fukushima nuclear plant accident. Ordinary people went out to the streets to speak anti-nuclear sentiments.
Ryuichi Sakamoto
It’s really rare in TV not to think, ‘Well, I’ve seen a version of this before.’
Gemma Chan
My first movie was ‘The Mask Of Zorro,’ and that was all swords and horses and swashbuckling, and I thought, ‘This is what movies are.’ Obviously, I never made another one like that again; those are very rare.
Matt Letscher
When you go to Mars, you need to have made the decision that you’re there permanently. The more people we have there, the more it can become a sustaining environment. Except for very rare exceptions, the people who go to Mars shouldn’t be coming back. Once you get on the surface, you’re there.
Buzz Aldrin
It’s a rare treat to be able to play in front of friends and family.
Becky Sauerbrunn
If you’re positioned to start your own organization, that’s great – but rare.
Andrew Yang
At the time of ‘The Epic,’ as a core band, we were all spending so much time apart making music for other people that by the time we got together – even though we grew up together and there’s a special connection we have – it was like a rare privilege to come together.
Kamasi Washington
There are very rare occasions when you get a good wicket to bat on, but whatever wicket you get, you have to play at least 20 overs for your side.
Virender Sehwag
Horror comedy – very rare in Bollywood.
Prabhu Deva
People ask ‘How does doing a film compare to doing an ad?’ Well, when you’re doing a commercial you don’t have to sell tickets. You have a captured audience. Which is actually completely rare and great; it gives you a lot of freedom. When you make a film, you have to do advertisements for the film.
Mike Mills
It’s a miracle to be an actor and to know that you have a job to go to a year from now is a rare thing, so I think peace of mind and financial stability come with that. Hopefully I’m a little wiser and have a little more perspective in my life than I did then.
Debra Messing
It’s rare when you stumble upon this amazing melody. We’d love to make a ‘Let Me Love You’ every time we go into the studio, but it’s definitely a special one.
Scott Storch
True idealists are rare; they are the dedicated workers, who would, if need be, die at the stake.
Henry Williamson
It’s very rare for the Internet to have a successful narrative show like ‘MyMusic.’ It’s really a case study for what is the future of the sitcom.
Benny Fine
It’s a rare and precious thing to be close to suffering because our society – in many ways – tells us that suffering is wrong. If it’s our own suffering, we try to hide it or isolate ourselves. If others are suffering, we’re taught to put them away somewhere so we don’t have to see it.
Sharon Salzberg
Half the world is full of women, but it’s rare to hear a narrative that doesn’t speak of women as the people who have things done to them instead of the people who do things. More often, women are talked about as a man’s daughter. A man’s wife.
Kameron Hurley
Frankly, there is not much demand from home and I don’t socialise much – no partying, get-togethers and very rare wedding appearances.
Sudha Murty
There are not many A-list directors who get to make the movies they want to make. I know two: Woody Allen and Tim Burton. Two different textures, but both get to do what they want, and that’s rare.
Martin Landau
On the rare occasions when U.N. blue helmets have made the news in the past, it has unfortunately too often been in the context of situations where peacekeepers have failed to shield civilians, or even when the peacekeepers themselves have been involved in abuse.
Samantha Power
It’s rare for the studios to find a filmmaker who wants to make a family film. To find someone that has an idea, embraces it, has kids and wants to make something exciting – well, they don’t see that too often.
Robert Rodriguez
It’s rare that I turn down a photo or autograph, because these are the people that support me, so why not support them. I love it and I invite it. I love what I do and the whole ‘celebrity’ life and all that.
Lance Gross
Gay rights are not primarily marriage rights, and for the millions who live in unaccepting places with no resources, dignity remains elusive. I am lucky to have forged meaning and built identity, but that’s still a rare privilege. And gay people deserve more, collectively, than the crumbs of justice.
Andrew Solomon
Albacore tuna has a mild flavor that’s delicious served raw or seared briefly on the outside so that it’s still rare on the inside.
Tom Douglas
Every year, you can depend on having at least a couple really exciting Nicole Kidman performances, and that’s a rare thing.
Adam Scott
My parents taught me that having a passion is a rare thing, so following it through and working hard, even when it’s tough, is important.
Jessica Springsteen
And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days.
James Russell Lowell
It is inspiring to partner with Moet & Chandon and Christie’s on something as rare and luxurious as 100 year old champagne, and see it simultaneously transformed into something that helps to meet the basic needs of those supported by The Lunchbox Fund.
Topaz Page-Green
There are lots of comic bosses and fathers in sitcoms, but the comic landlord remains rare.
Josh Widdicombe
Most of the tech CEOs I know used to think that moving to the Midwest or the South was beneath us, a good tactic for the Boeings of the world who don’t need the kind of rare skills we depend on, who have to grub for profits when we reach for growth. But if Amazon can’t afford to keep growing in Seattle, who can?
Glenn Kelman
Wal-Mart is an amazing success story. What I particularly admire very much about the late Sam Walton was his policy of valuing his employees. Giving value to employees is very rare in the retail industry. I also admire the strategies Walton used to build up his discount store concept.
Tadashi Yanai
Valor is common but great souls are rare.
Bernard Joseph Saurin
Every now and again I want to go to the beach and be in the sun, but that’s a very rare feeling, so I could live in London, definitely.
Taylor Momsen
By giving unusual people an easy way to find one another, the Internet has also enabled them to pool rare talents, resources, and voices, then push their case into public consciousness. The response, in many cases, is a kind of hysteria.
Virginia Postrel
I think Sammy Watkins is a rare talent.
Rex Ryan
I think I’m one of the rare people out there who still cares about the game of basketball.
Gilbert Arenas
I can’t stand confrontation, which maybe is a character flaw. But having said that, I do feel like when I do get upset – which is rare, as my husband and family would say – I have a hard time letting go.
Anna Faris
Art is changing. Again. Here. Now. Opportunities to witness this are rare, so attend and observe.
Jerry Saltz
It’s a rare pro-lifer who is against the death penalty, who’s against all war, who favors, you know, all the things people need to flourish and stay healthy in life. They’ve tied themselves to the Republican Party, which doesn’t support any of that.
Katha Pollitt
These rare senses and powers of reasoning were given to be used freely, but not audaciously, to discover, not to pervert the truth.
William John Wills
However rare true love may be, it is less so than true friendship.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Kind thoughts are rarer than either kind words or deeds. They imply a great deal of thinking about others. This in itself is rare. But they also imply a great deal of thinking about others without the thoughts being criticisms. This is rarer still.
Frederick William Faber
The rare few, who, early in life have rid themselves of the friendship of the many.
James Whistler
Become that rare person where people know that your word is your bond and you’re going to do exactly what you say you’re going to do.
John W. Rogers, Jr.
Honesty is as rare as a man without self-pity.
Stephen Vincent Benet
It’s nice to have the support and infrastructure to do what I want creatively. That’s kind of a rare thing to find.
Justin Peck
Players who create advantages for their team at one end or the other are rare.
B. J. Armstrong
Smooth shapes are very rare in the wild but extremely important in the ivory tower and the factory.
Benoit Mandelbrot
We live in a world where people think that finding a passion is so rare that if you find one you’re the luckiest person on the planet, and the possibility of finding two is just bizarre. It isn’t. We have multiple passions.
Larry Smith
‘Troll 2’ is one of the rare sequels where you don’t have to waste time watching the first one, since the films have absolutely nothing to do with one another.
Eli Roth
The first ‘Hunger Games’ movie was one of those rare films to combine epic storyline, memorable characters and challenging musical opportunities.
James Newton Howard
Normally, we are happy to find a fragment of jaw, a few isolated teeth, a bit of an arm, a bit of a skull. But to find associated body parts is extremely rare.
Donald Johanson
There is a daily discussion with our servants about the price of food and the number of loaves: a conference with our presbyters to consider the sins of our people is a very rare occurrence.
Saint Bernard
It’s rare to get a part in a show that’s greenlit, let alone two shows that have been greenlit.
Krysten Ritter
It is a rare mind indeed that can render the hitherto non-existent blindingly obvious. The cry ‘I could have thought of that’ is a very popular and misleading one, for the fact is that they didn’t, and a very significant and revealing fact it is too.
Douglas Adams
Like every mother, it’s my children; that’s the first thing that makes me really proud. For my own part, it would be when I became a Queen’s Counsel in 1995. I was the 76th woman ever to become a Queen’s Counsel, so it was still a pretty rare thing.
Cherie Blair
Music has given me a decent pension. I am in that rare position for a clergyman of having some provision for my retirement. Thank you, young people of Europe.
Richard Coles
The whole conviction of my life now rests upon the belief that loneliness, far from being a rare and curious phenomenon, peculiar to myself and to a few other solitary men, is the central and inevitable fact of human existence.
Tom Wolfe
These are rare moments in an actor’s life, where you’re put in an environment which is so natural, and you get natural performances.
Amitabh Bachchan
When good things come along, you end up saying yes to them. Because they’re rare.
John Lithgow
It was an argument of rare power and eloquence.
William Henry Moody
I would say if you do have ambitions, don’t just wait around. Go out and make yourself as well-qualified as possible so you can take that rare opportunity when it comes along.
David Mackay
It’s very rare that a song falls from your mind complete.
Alex Kapranos
It’s a rare opportunity to play a character that is not only a lot of fun to portray, but it’s also rare to play someone that teaches you something.
Scott Michael Foster
The rare opportunity of writing music for a movie about the making of ‘Mary Poppins’ was impossible to ignore. The fact that it could provide emotional content in relief of the struggles that the Sherman brothers and Walt Disney endured was reason enough to take on the challenge.
Thomas Newman
I genuinely miss writing now on the rare days I don’t write; my mouth waters when I think about writing, and I have an extreme physical reaction to the idea of doing it.
Caitlin Moran
Pixar is a community in the true sense of the word. We think that lasting relationships matter, and we share some basic beliefs: Talent is rare.
Edwin Catmull
On the rare occasions when my mother perfumed herself, she was going out, and so I rarely smelled those special scents up close on her body, except during kisses goodbye.
Mary Gaitskill
I never met Peter O’Toole, but he one was of those rare actors whose success was defined by a single role. His incandescent performance in David Lean’s ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ is one that nobody who saw it will ever forget.
Michael Korda
I have a suspicion that a lot of artists are trying to get a laugh but, unlike stand-ups, they don’t get an immediate response from their audience; a laugh is a rare thing in a gallery.
Arthur Smith
It’s very rare and unusual to see a female comic perform pregnant.
Ali Wong
Michael was a rare breed. There’s no question about that. He did things that a lot of players could never do, and still to this day players can’t do those things, so the honors that he’s had are definitely deserved.
Dominique Wilkins
It’s very rare in British boxing that you have two fighters who are both undefeated and who are both world champions.
Callum Smith
Everybody knows I wear a lot of black. When I pack, my whole bag is nothing but black, but sometimes, I have, like, a few pieces that are white, but it’s rare.
Mariacarla Boscono
It’s rare that I come across actors who are willing to work as hard on the material as I am.
Donnie Wahlberg
Being alone & actually sitting with our own thoughts can lead to such growth and realizations that are rare in our everyday busy lives.
Kourtney Kardashian
‘Kanaa’ is a rare opportunity; it’s about women’s cricket, and they’ve trusted me with this film. I trained for nearly four hours every day with three coaches.
Aishwarya Rajesh
I grew up obsessively collecting Queen T-shirts and concert posters and rare U.K. imports of their CDs.
Adam F. Goldberg
Chicago’s one of the rare places where architecture is more visible.
Frank Gehry
It seems like in the beginning of my flight, the space dreams were rare. And now, almost 150 days into it, the Earth dreams are more of the rare ones.
Scott Kelly
Joker’ is, of course, a character of my generation grew up with, and it’s a character you know really well and have strong opinions about. He’s been a larger-than-life character in fiction. He’s one of these rare characters that have had such strong performances.
Hildur Gudnadottir
It’s pretty rare that something I’ve written is close to something that’s pre-existed.
St. Lucia
A couple of my teammates have the rare Ford F650 Super Truck, and they’re kitted out with everything – even flat-screen TVs for movies and video-game systems in the back.
Ndamukong Suh
The resources industry has a long future in Queensland, whether it’s metallurgical coal from the Bowen Basin, bauxite from Weipa or rare earth minerals from the North West Minerals Province.
Annastacia Palaszczuk
I feel very indebted to my job. I support the loyalty that they’ve given me – it’s very rare, especially in my profession, that you find people who are not just supportive of who you are as a person, but supportive of you finding love and your happiness.
Rachel Lindsay
There are people who want to hear what they consider your hits. There are people who want you to experiment and explore random, rare things. And it’s kind of a different; they’re two different beasts.
Aaron Dessner
It’s rare that I go on a first date and don’t want to go out again.
Lamorne Morris
Priorities are fundamental to politics because of inevitable information bottlenecks: these bottlenecks can be transformed by rare good organisation but they cannot be eradicated.
Dominic Cummings
Violence is very much with us, and we like to see it. I doubt if you can change that, and I’m not sure you should want to. I have occasionally been very upset by something I was writing, but it’s quite rare: I keep my writing very separate from my life.
Ruth Rendell
It’s rare that you can promote a love story and feel fear in a film.
Cary Fukunaga
It’s really the rare creator who can tell you where he’s going to end the season of 22 episodes. That’s not bad. That’s part of the creative exploration.
Kevin Reilly
If I’d written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people – including me – would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.
Hunter S. Thompson
From an evolutionary standpoint, human consciousness has not been around very long. A little light just went on after four and a half billion years. How often does that happen? Maybe it is quite rare.
Elon Musk
I never played the ‘decoration,’ I always played the one who suffered. And then I got very lucky in my middle career, when I started playing the hero, which at that point was quite rare for women.
Tyne Daly
There are two of my favorite books, ‘The Great Gatsby’ and ‘Gone With The Wind’, that were made into movies. And I love those movies as much as I love the books. That’s really rare.
Tatiana de Rosnay
I haven’t left modeling completely; I just took a step out, and I now have the rare luxury of picking and choosing how to spend my days.
Christy Turlington
Usually, in musical theater, if you sing operatically or if you sing in a legit style, you’re the heart of the show. You maybe get to be moving and do dramatic stuff, but it’s very rare to be that funny.
Laura Benanti
The rule of law, democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of expression – we cannot take them for granted. They do not exist willy-nilly across the world; they are very rare.
Daniel Lubetzky
It’s very rare, as an actor, to be someplace – to have an address, so to speak.
Yvette Nicole Brown
The pressures of being an MP mean free time is a very rare luxury.
David Lammy
Music was always ever present when I was growing up, and it’s continued to be the most important and intrinsic part of me. It kept me from going off the rails as a kid, and it gave me rare purpose and self-confidence that I couldn’t find from anything else.
Sam Fender
It’s so rare that I get to do something in my own accent in my own hometown.
Rebecca Hall
It’s rare that anybody gets in the Hall of Fame, and to be nominated is good enough for me.
Robin Zander
I think true atheism is a rare thing in human affairs: Even in the most secularized precincts of Europe, a lot of nominal nonbelievers turn out to have all sorts of supernatural and metaphysical beliefs.
Ross Douthat
I’m grateful that on a lot of casts I’ve gained friends for life. But it’s more of a rare thing than a normal thing. I have a small group of friends, and I just, uh, feel fulfilled by the people that are in my life.
Matt Czuchry
Particularly if you’re a good engineer, there’s a lot of ways you can make money, but to actually have an impact on the world is rare, and when you find an opportunity for that, it’s very special.
Matt Mullenweg
It’s rare for me to sit in a room with my guitar and feel like I can’t stop playing, because it just sounds so good.
Adrianne Lenker
It’s very rare in life to be sure about something – particularly when it’s an issue.
Hugh Grant
I’m one of those rare breed of rock n’ rollers with a brain, probably because the brain’s still intact.
Suzi Quatro
As a Korean American, I grew up yearning to see actors that looked like me. On the rare occasions I saw an Asian celebrity, I adored them unflaggingly.
Crystal Hana Kim
The single most exciting thing you encounter in government is competence, because it’s so rare.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan
I’m a bit of a bed head: I’m always running around with no make-up on and my hair in a mess, but my nails are one thing I do love to keep looking nice, so it’s rare to see me without it.
Poppy Delevingne
It’s a rare opportunity when you can do something for the greater good.
Scott Borchetta
When people see a talented girl, it calls to mind the very rare breed of women who have managed to succeed. If I were a dude with the exact same voice, band and songs, I doubt they’d compare me to Sheryl Crow. But hey, I’m not complaining. Big fish, small pond.
Grace Potter
I do occasionally encounter a British business that delivers what and when, and for exactly the price, they promised. But commercial paragons in the U.K. are rare.
Lionel Shriver
For all of my life I’d been extremely healthy. I’d never had any health issues, so to go from being perfectly healthy to having this very rare disease was scary. In a lot of people it is very severe. Some people go blind, you can have neuro-lesions which affect your brain, so I was very nervous.
Sanya Richards-Ross
The Browning love story? It is an ideal, all too rare, and yet I hardly think it strange. It would have been far stranger had the fates allowed those two brilliant passionate souls to beat themselves out in silence.
Marie Corelli
Imgur offers a rare place for people to express themselves in a real way without the fear of social judgment. Everyone has an equal chance of sharing their story to millions of people because it’s not about who you are but about the quality of your content.
Alan Schaaf
We’ve built the largest empire in the history of the world. It’s been done over the last 50 years since World War II with very little military might, actually. It’s only in rare instances like Iraq where the military comes in as a last resort.
John Perkins
I don’t think people can imagine a Liverpool team without Gerrard. It is like Raul at Real Madrid and Puyol at Barcelona. They are a rare breed, these types of players.
Michael Laudrup
It’s the rare book that’s able to transport you in a way that a movie does.
Bret Easton Ellis
With rare exceptions, I respond most to painting that cuts across grain rather than following it. I think the artist here can get in touch with that grain rather than simply feel its flow. And he really can’t cut right across it anyway.
Richard Diebenkorn
‘Human Giant’ was a kind of lightning in a bottle. A rare opportunity for us to write and create our own sort of thing, with very few restrictions.
Rob Huebel
The documented incidences of voter fraud are very rare, yet throughout the country, forces have mobilized in over 30 states to stop it. These efforts are very partisan.
John Lewis
I remember when I was younger, I read that Jay-Z was 33 and I was just like, ‘Damn! This dudes really still goin for it?’ It’s just so rare that you see any rapper over 30 doing anything interesting.
Aesop Rock
Government workers often get a bad rap, but it’s rare for them to receive much appreciation when government works.
Matthew Lesko
To have a job you can count on as an actor is so rare, whether that means belonging to a regional theater company or being on TV.
Jim Parsons
Five centuries from now – barring unimaginable catastrophe – the moon will be developed real estate. There’s economic incentive to exploit the moon – the helium-3 will be useful in powering fusion reactors, and the rare earth elements could supplant the limited terrestrial supply of these materials.
Seth Shostak
It’s very rare that we play a gig and we all come off and say ‘That was great, I had a great time!’ There’s always someone that’s had a bad time. So the goal is always to achieve the next level of performing the piece that you’ve written. You’re looking for something that you haven’t even captured on the album.
Justin Chancellor
It may not be possible to get rare roast beef but if you’re willing to settle for well done, ask them to hold the sweetened library paste that passes for gravy.
Marian Burros
If somebody honks a horn in Cleveland, they’re saying ‘Hi.’ It’s so rare to be honked at in anger. When we have merging traffic, we just interweave. There’s real courtesy.
Mary Doria Russell
One can find women who have never had one love affair, but it is rare indeed to find any who have had only one.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
My history teacher could make us feel like he was imparting rare gossip to us when he was talking about Maria Theresa and the Habsburgs. I just loved that sense of – the Western canon is here, and it’s gossipy and tawdry, and everyone is sort of goofy.
Daniel Mallory Ortberg
Today we read books ‘extensively,’ often without sustained focus, and with rare exceptions we read each book only once. We value quantity of reading over quality of reading. We have no choice, if we want to keep up with the broader culture.
Joshua Foer
In the wintertime, in the snow country, citrus fruit was so rare, and if you got one, it was better than ambrosia.
James Earl Jones
It’s quite rare for a group of people to come together for a live event that isn’t loud music. A live event that enables thinking to take place, to take place collectively. It’s unique to theatre. It’s a quality I never want to see diminished.
Tim Crouch
Planned Parenthood can’t hide their sickening abortion business behind a ‘safe, legal and rare’ slogan.
Ben Sasse
On the plus side, leaving Leeds meant I have been able to spend a lot of time with the family, enjoying a very rare summer off and my first Christmas without work worries since I was a teenager. I was also able to accept an offer to work with BT Sport.
Neil Warnock
I like everything rare – cars, shoes, clothes.
Mike Will Made It
The tendency of old age to the body, say the physiologists, is to form bone. It is as rare as it is pleasant to meet with an old man whose opinions are not ossified.
Bob Wells
It’s rare when a president wins the campaign without winning independents.
Mark McKinnon
My experience on ‘The West Wing’ was, I think, now rare in that I was pretty young, and I walked into this environment where Aaron Sorkin was giving me a script every week, and Thomas Schlamme and John Wells were keeping the studio off my back, at least as best as they could.
Alex Graves
I had 30-something years’ experience in modeling, which is rare.
Lauren Hutton
Meetings should be great – they’re opportunities for a group of people sitting together around a table to directly communicate. That should be a good thing. And it is, but only if treated as a rare delicacy.
Jason Fried
Political prodigies are rare in a nation that grooms top leaders through decades of Communist Party road-testing and pageantry. And because Chairman Mao’s cult of personality led the country into extremism, the Party spent the next three decades engineering its politicians to be as indistinguishable as possible.
Evan Osnos
Older readers will remember there used to be matches on Christmas Day. I remember leaving the fireside and the presents to watch matches on the day as a boy but such matches were rare by the time I began playing.
Neil Warnock
Cock-fighting, which has attained to the dignity of a literature of its own, is the popular Malay sport; but the grand sport is a tiger and buffalo fight, reserved for rare occasions, however, on account of its expense. Cock-fighting is a source of gigantic gambling and desperate feuds.
Isabella Bird
I am a huge Prince fan. It’s a very rare thing for him to have people open for him. It’s been the Time and Sheila E., and that’s about it. Building a relationship with him has been like a dream come true. I’ve been looking for a mentor, and I feel like I have that in him.
Jill Scott
I’ve done lots of stuff, but it’s rare for people to come up to you and be happy about the fact that it’s been put out there, that it’s something a bit different, something creative.
Adeel Akhtar
It is really rare to find someone you really, really love and that you want to spend your life with and all that stuff that goes along with being married. I am one of those lucky people. And I think she feels that way too. So the romantic stuff is easy because you want them to be happy.
Harry Connick, Jr.
It is something that is called MDS. It is a rare blood disorder that affects the bone marrow. I’m going to beat this. My doctors say it and my faith says it.
Robin Roberts
Genuine cosmopolitanism is a rare thing. It requires comfort with real difference, with forms of life that are truly exotic relative to one’s own.
Ross Douthat
It’s rare to find these true coin flip situations in Hold’em but surprisingly common in Omaha. That’s one of the reasons why Omaha is the perfect game for action junkies who relish the notion of flipping coins for large sums of money.
Daniel Negreanu
Stars are rare creatures, and not everyone can be one. But there isn’t anyone on earth – not you, not me, not the girl next door – who wouldn’t like to be a movie star holding up that gold statuette on Academy Award night.
Sue Mengers
When an author creates a town in her novels, she spends a great deal of time visualizing the streets and buildings, landmarks and topography. And while the town becomes real in her imagination, it’s rare for an author to see the place she’s created actually spring to life.
Lori Wilde
It’s really rare that you come across a Southern character that’s not stereotyped, vilified or aggrandized.
Anson Mount
I try to factor solitude into my life because more and more, that’s becoming a very precious and rare commodity.
Robyn Davidson
A chunk of seared albacore tuna, salted and peppered, then seared rare in a little oil in a hot skillet for just a minute or so per side, is the perfect addition to a savory plate of fried rice. Just slice the tuna across the grain and fan those mild, meaty slices over the top of the rice.
Tom Douglas
On ‘State of Affairs,’ we’re going after some names that you wouldn’t think would traditionally do TV. A show that shoots in Los Angeles is such a rare bird in hand that I think we’re gonna have the pick of the litter.
Joe Carnahan
Then, again, the ability to organize and conduct industrial, commercial, or financial enterprises is rare; the great captains of industry are as rare as great generals.
William Graham Sumner
The thing with racism is it’s rare you can really prove racism.
Charlamagne tha God
On the rare occasions I go to the gym, I prefer silence.
Bebe Neuwirth
If you enjoy math and you write novels, it’s very rare that you’ll get a chance to put your math into a novel. I leapt at the chance.
Mark Haddon
I like tuna when there’s a definite streak of deep pink in the middle, medium rare so to speak, and it comes out best when it’s not cut too thick.
Geoffrey Zakarian
It’s very rare that I get really upset about something my assistants have done.
Brad Goreski
I don’t think anybody is a poet 24/7, only in those rare moments when a person is producing a poem.
X. J. Kennedy
There will always be vain, obsessive people who want to own rare and extraordinary things whatever the cost; there will always be people for whom owning beautiful, dangerous animals brings a sense of power and magic.
Susan Orlean
Often you find the character through the things they say. How they talk about other people, how they describe themselves – which is very rare.
Richard C. Armitage
The man must have a rare recipe for melancholy, who can be dull in Fleet Street.
Charles Lamb
These kinds of scripts telling the stories of women are very rare.
Shin Min-a
I have this thing called hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsies. It’s incredibly rare.
Branden Jacobs-Jenkins
My grandmother studied medicine in the Forties, which was very rare in Egypt, and my mother was a university professor, so my idea of religion wasn’t about a woman not working or having to dress in a certain way; it was more to do with the faith.
Leila Aboulela
‘Twilight’ passed like a fever through the sophisticated reader and the unsophisticated reader alike. People devoured those books in single sittings, over weekends, with a kind of raw intensity that is rare.
Holly Black
Growing up, a black face on TV was really rare.
Ainsley Harriott
If depression has taught me one thing, it is this: what a rare and beautiful treasure is the simple human gift of joy. For me now, joy – our capacity to delight in one another and in the world – is the reason why we are here. It is as simple as that. And I feel compelled to spread the word.
Giles Andreae
Except for teachers, who are ‘controlled’ as far as his militancy is concerned, good jobs are rare for Negroes.
Medgar Evers
I took the role because it’s rare to read a script that makes me laugh and cry, and it spoke to my own religious feelings, as well as giving me a chance to draw on my experience as a parent. Accepting it was a no-brainer.
Stephen Collins
I’m delighted by how Nobody’s Fool turned out. It was a rare movie.
Richard Russo
Finding yourself on a show that’s appreciated by its intended audience is a very rare and lucky thing, so when you win the lottery like that, you don’t want to rush its conclusion; you want to keep it going as long as you can.
Vince Gilligan
The bravest person I’ve ever met was a young boy going through massive amounts of treatment for a very rare, complex and unpleasant disease. I last saw him at a Discworld convention, where he chose to take part in a game as an assassin. He died not long afterwards, and I wish I had his fortitude and sense of style.
Terry Pratchett
My overwhelming concern will always be the well-being of the athletes. In Olympic sport, it is rare for competitors not to devote half their young life to this. Their families will have given up all sorts of things to allow them to do that.
Sebastian Coe
It is fortunate that molecular synthesis also serves the utilitarian function of producing quantities of rare or novel substances which satisfy human needs, especially with regard to health, and the scientific function of stimulating research and education throughout the whole discipline of chemistry.
Elias James Corey
Opinions are 10 a penny. In the spin-driven, PR-controlled world of the 21st century, hard facts are rare indeed.
David Hewson
Seeing Mexicans in the media is rare. Seeing role models on TV is rare. So who do we look up to? We’re not seen on football fields or basketball courts. So we look up to fighters; they’re Mexican. They are out there fighting, representing their people, and winning champions. We look up to them.
Cain Velasquez
For a filmmaker, it’s a rare chance to do a personal film on a big canvas.
Ang Lee
It’s really rare in life that a situation is as black and white as we tend to paint it.
Aesop Rock
Stephen King consummately honors several traditions with his rare paperback original, ‘Joyland.’ He addresses the novel of carny life and sideshows, where the midway serves as microcosm, such as in those famous books by Ray Bradbury, Charles Finney and William Lindsay Gresham.
Paul Di Filippo
I often say in my speeches, I say, ‘It’s rare in life that you get a controlled scientific experiment.’ ‘Cause you can’t do controlled scientific experiments with real people, normally.
Jerrold Nadler
Continuity is a wonderful thing, and it is a very rare thing in show business.
David L. Wolper
It’s very rare that things are true about yourself that are on the Internet. It’s just sad sometimes. So you definitely try and stay away from it as much as possible.
Taylor Lautner
To me, I don’t write when I’m depressed. If I’m depressed, which is actually rare, I’m not doing anything, you know, and I’m not able to do anything.
Nick Cave
I’ve learned that we all change constantly. It’s rare to find that person who is growing with you in the same way at the same time, who encourages you to grow.
Angelina Jolie
I rate ‘Naan Thaan Bala’ as one of the best performances of my career. It was a rare feat, perhaps in Indian cinema, that a popular comedian played the lead role in a film that didn’t have even a tinge of humour.
Evictions used to be rare in this country. They used to draw crowds. There are scenes in literature where you can come upon an eviction – like, in ‘Invisible Man’ there’s the famous eviction scene in Harlem, and people are gathered around, and they move the family back in.
Matthew Desmond
The daily act of writing remains as demanding and maddening as it was before, and the pleasure you get from writing – rare but profound – remains at the true heart of the enterprise. On their best days, writers all over the world are winning Pulitzers, all alone in their studios, with no one watching.
Jeffrey Eugenides
It’s rare to be treated like a friend you haven’t met in a Hollywood meeting.
David Ogden Stiers
Madness is rare in individuals – but in groups, parties, nations, and ages it is the rule.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I’m working on a school of architecture in China. It’s rare that an architect gets to design a school of architecture, and here I get to do it. I’m so pleased that they asked me.
Michael Graves
Sometimes I’ll turn the channel and there’s the movie and I can honestly say that those last few minutes always fascinate me. It’s one of the rare instances when image, music, and drama work effectively.
Madeleine Stowe
It’s rare in Hollywood to get the chance to work on something that you actually care about. The tragedy of the place is all these talented people trying to get excited about stuff they themselves would only view at gunpoint.
Stephen Gaghan
A scenario is, everyone takes gene therapy – not just curing rare diseases like cystic fibrosis, but diseases that everyone has, like aging.
George M. Church
My dad has had a rare form of leukemia since I was in about 7th grade. But they’ve come up with some amazing drugs since then and he’s doing really well today.
Tom DeLonge
Films like ‘Jungle’ are rare. It was a powerful role and in the future I would like to be associated with such films rather than being part of nonsense stuff.
Kashmira Shah
Old school Janet Jackson is always good. I usually go old school, it’s very rare that I pick a song from nowadays.
Jenna Dewan
It’s so rare when marketing and press doesn’t ruin your movie.
Jeff Baena
As a quarterback, there’s no better way to finish your year, in winning a Super Bowl, than with a touchdown pass. The chances of that happening, by the looks of most of the Super Bowls, is a very rare chance. Fortunately for me, I had an opportunity.
Joe Montana
Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer.
Jean de La Fontaine
To find a new British composer who is really good is rare.
Tim Rice
To read of a detective’s daring finesse or ingenious stratagem is a rare joy.
Rex Stout
As an actress, to get to work on a project where the main focus is the female voice is rare!
Jodie Whittaker
Together, the WEEE Act and the First Step Act represented two rare examples of Republicans and Democrats coming together to make meaningful change.
Kayleigh McEnany
My dream as an actor growing up was always to challenge myself to different genres, different roles, and it’s actually rare that an actor’s given that opportunity to do that.
Taylor Lautner
I’ve chosen a career that’s quite tricky. You have such high highs and low lows, and it’s outrageously inconsistent. But it is what I love, which is so rare, and I’m so grateful for that every day.
Annaleigh Ashford
I heard of this Texas studio. The owner, Tony Rancich, wanted to fly us out for the day to see the studio. I booked it the next day. He’s that rare guy that is in it purely for the love of it.
James Vincent McMorrow
It’s rare that scenes last more than 2 or 3 minutes, so sound helps segue from one scene to another.
Stephen Hopkins
R. Murray Shcafer is a Canadian composer with a twist. Aside from writing incredibly ethereal music, he is also an acousitc ecologist, fighting for the sonic space on this planet to be beautiful – a rare and shamefully underrated cause.
Weyes Blood
It’s very rare to have a patient who isn’t absolutely delighted when you say, ‘I read your feedback. The session didn’t go well. You actually got more upset, and I made about three really horrible errors.’ If you do that from the heart and not as a gimmick, boy, it’s a wonderful thing.
David D. Burns
Since ‘Christine’ started screening, I’m overwhelmed by the response from women and men – that it’s so rare to see something like this. We’re just not given the opportunity so much.
Rebecca Hall
It’s a very, very rare moment when another actor hurts you. That’s not normal. If anything, it’s the actor accidentally punching the stunt double, which happens quite a bit.
Katee Sackhoff
When I was born in 1970 with a rare genetic disorder called spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SED), medical science wasn’t what it is today and my mum and dad were treated terribly by the medical profession.
Warwick Davis
If you’re a goal scorer, you have to have a certain attitude. I’m very serious. My missus thinks I’m a bit weird. I’m cold, I don’t have many emotions. It’s very rare I cry.
Michael Owen
I feel like it’s extremely rare to find a female who’s bisexual and not either lesbian or straight on television shows.
Madelaine Petsch
What I find frustrating about scripted television is that it’s rare that you are surprised by how you feel about the character, or how you feel about the show.
Mike White
My school was pretty much all African Americans, but it was still a little tough to be in because I didn’t have a lot of money. And when I came back to my neighborhood, it was tough to fit in there, too, because I was wearing Catholic school clothes, and I had two parents, which was rare.
Ryan Coogler
Nothing else is as fulfilling as playing a part in which you are able to have a significant say in the creative process all the way through. How many actors get to do that? It’s extremely rare.
Tom Hollander
It’s a rare and special feeling to ride a racehorse.
Victoria Pendleton
There is no hierarchy of values any more. Real progress is due mainly to human genius, and that’s rare, and usually stems from a real elite, from a hierarchy.
Vivienne Westwood
Mastering the paradox of star brands is very difficult and rare – fortunately.
Bernard Arnault
If you ever catch a great boss, it’s just such a rare thing, and it’s amazing.
James L. Brooks
I’m a rare breed.
Teddy Bridgewater
The reality is that most companies are not about any values at all – they are about making money. It is extremely rare for a business to stand for anything because most businesses don’t want to alienate potential customers, and if you believe in anything you are going to alienate someone.
Jerry Greenfield
In Britain, libel damages are small and people build them into the cost of doing business. In America, libel is very rare and much harder to prove, but the damages are enormous.
Graydon Carter
From the beginning of the Radiation Laboratory, I have had the rare good fortune of being in the center of a group of men of high ability, enthusiastic and completely devoted to scientific pursuits.
Ernest Lawrence
Panic is rare, looting is essentially insignificant, people are not terrified and trampling each other to flee from a disaster scene, but in fact are trying to manage a situation. We may in fact revert to some sort of primordial civility.
Rebecca Solnit
Occasionally if you do something extraordinary, the crew responds with spontaneous applause, but that’s very rare.
Claudia Christian
If you want to get an email to Robert Redford, you send it to his assistant, and she prints it out. And then he will write you a letter, which is incredibly rare and incredibly classy. Unfortunately, I can’t be that removed from technology.
Taylor Sheridan
I think it’s rare for anyone that a really accomplished, amazing director calls you up and says, ‘I want to make a movie around you, and I want it to be this.’
Jay Duplass
As actors, our job is to step into other people’s shoes, So our capacity for compassion is like, next level, and that’s why it’s rare that you find a non-liberal actor.
Sian Clifford
‘Eureka’ moments are very, very rare in my experience. It normally takes several weeks of experiments to tease out the truth, even when you have a really pretty good idea of what is going on.
Tim Hunt
So it’s rare if I go to a city and don’t shop. I know different store systems in every city so I just like doing business everywhere I go.
Westside Gunn
I’m not happy on vacation. In those rare times when I have three hours with no work I have to do, I’m terribly uncomfortable.
Scott Adams
Being treated by a doctor who specializes in your kind of cancer is so important, especially for those of us who have rare or very rare cancers. They will have access to newer treatment options that may be offered only at big academic cancer centers, so you don’t miss out on treatments that could help you.
Kathy Giusti
When you start using terms like national championship and playoffs, that’s very rare air.
Urban Meyer
When you use the word ‘filibuster,’ most of us in America – and I count myself among them – envision it as the ability to hold the floor on rare occasions to speak at length and make your point emphatically and even delay progress by taking hours.
Jeff Merkley
Really, if I’m gonna eat a meat, I’d rather eat venison than anything and I do like it a little on the rare side. That’s probably my favorite meat and I’ve had some awfully good venison in some of the great restaurants.
Mike Ditka
Happy is the small business that can hire additional employees besides the proprietor; rare is the indie-film enterprise that can be happy in this way. The norm is an unpaid principal with no employees between productions.
Whit Stillman
Before the 20th century, to be a successful musician was merely to be one who was employed. A few, such as Liszt, Paderewski and several singers, had phenomenally lucrative careers, but they were rare – and Liszt gave all of his money away, travelling by choice in a third-class rail carriage.
Stephen Hough
Dre was a person who could see ahead of the beat. He could see the beat before it was even there. He’s like a rare person. Very rare.
DJ Yella
A squirrel attacked me. I got attacked by a squirrel in Battersea Park. They’re dangerous. It’s rare. I’ve torn most of the ligaments in my knee. So no football for me. It’s early retirement now. I’ve got a floating knee-cap!
Niall Horan
My pregnancy craving is truffles. I like the smell and I like the way it tastes but they’re very very expensive, rare mushrooms.
Maryse Mizanin
Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads.
Erica Jong
As an actor, it’s very rare that you get a choice in a matter. But you’re always looking for something that has some gravitas.
Aldis Hodge
Trust is that rare and priceless treasure that wins us the affection of our heavenly Father.
Brennan Manning
I go online at night and I order flowers, rare flowers, and then they come in the mail. That’s my fashion detox.
Zac Posen
It’s really rare that you find a designer who’s willing to dress people who maybe present more masculine in their womenswear.
Tommy Dorfman
In very rare circumstances, the executive branch might choose to ignore a court decision.
Newt Gingrich
When you create series and products, sometimes there’s specific situations where your content is being infringed… in very rare cases, somebody produces a beat-by-beat version of your exact series, which has happened to us.
Benny Fine
Generally, there’s a correlation between good work and good reviews. In the very odd, very rare case that they say it’s terrible, but actually you’re a genius who is ahead of your time, you are going to just have to suffer.
Tim Minchin
One of the most extraordinary things about being a spiritual teacher is the rare privilege of being able to look deeply into the very souls of many human beings at the same time.
Andrew Cohen
I love Tom Waits because he’s an artist who makes me not afraid to get old, and that’s rare. I think it’s a rare kind of thing to have that level of wisdom. And his lyrics are just astounding; everything in life is inside his lyrics.
Matt Bellamy
Leonardo DiCaprio is a rare phenomenon. Whereas for so many celebrities an interest in the environment is a fashionable accessory, for DiCaprio it is a thread that runs through everything he does.
Zac Goldsmith
The violinist is that peculiarly human phenomenon distilled to a rare potency – half tiger, half poet.
Yehudi Menuhin
My experience is that’s rare – that you have a script that is… what they call ‘film-ready.’
Laura Linney
As much as I love my work, I do appreciate my rare days off. Even then, I can’t afford to let the dancing go. I need at least an hour just to keep in shape, so wherever I am in the world, I’ll grab the door or the furniture and do some serious exercise.
Sylvie Guillem
Our time here is magic! It’s the only space you have to realize whatever it is that is beautiful, whatever is true, whatever is great, whatever is potential, whatever is rare, whatever is unique, in. It’s the only space.
Ben Okri
Mostly, I have to say as an actor, to find a character that’s been rich enough for 10 seasons of shows… that’s very rare.
Jon Cryer
You can be revered for all sorts of qualities, but to be truly charismatic is rare. Elizabeth Taylor was, for me, one of those rarities.
Francesca Annis
United Artists wanted to do records with me. I had no idea, what a rare thing that was… to make an album. And they put a guy with me working on songs, and I got busy with films. I just kind of let it slide. Isn’t that amazing?
John Astin
No not at all… it is rare for shows to make it as long as Once and Again… It was a pretty good run.
Sela Ward
I’m gonna keep Very Rare as a street brand. I wanna make a new clothing brand and group. It’s gonna be more… high fashion.
Ski Mask the Slump God
It’s rare that you get to play a great role that has an arc.
Matt Bomer
America gave me the opportunity to open successful restaurants, start a TV show, and write books. I can even fill an auditorium when I give a speech, which in America is rare for a chef.
Jose Andres
The big pay-off was to work as an artist and gain some shred of respect from your friends, who were also artists. But there was never any notion that you could make a living out of art. On the rare occasions you had a gallery show, and sold a little work, well, that was just gravy.
Edward Ruscha
I love being a redhead. It’s a rare thing, so I think there’s a bond between redheads.
Laura Prepon
Not many people do what Jameis Winston did: first year as a starter winning a national championship, only one loss in his two years as a starter. He’s got great charisma. He’s polarizing for some people, but he’s a rare talent.
Jon Gruden
It’s amazing how lucky Westlife were and what we achieved. It’s very rare to have seven number ones in a row. Ridiculous in fact.
Shane Filan
Honest communication is a rare thing.
Taylor Sheridan
It’s rare to find a film that goes for broke and says, ‘To hell with the consequences.’
Roger Ebert
In rare instances you have to give up what you thought was a great scene.
Keenen Ivory Wayans
I know it when I don’t know it. Sometimes I know it when I don’t think I know it. I need to trust myself in these moments, these rare moments of self-doubt.
Rush Limbaugh
Montenegro belongs to a rare number of countries that have managed to make progress on every internationally recognisable indicator.
Igor Luksic
All I wanted to do was create theater for us, for our generation, for the people of this planet. And it’s so rare that the art that you are making is reaching a huge mass of people.
Phillipa Soo
I think as a young actress, it’s very rare that you read something where you’re not either ‘the girl’ or there to serve some romantic purpose in a male dominated cast.
Sienna Miller
He greatly valued his possessions, chiefly because they were his, and derived genuine pleasure from contemplating a painting, a statuette, a rare lace curtain – no matter what – after he had bought it and placed it among his household gods.
Kate Chopin
He’s just like my father that way-my father just adored my mother and let her do whatever she wanted. John’s like that. He’s a very rare man, a very good man, and I’ve had a good life with him. I’m proud to be walking in the wake of Johnny’s fame.
June Carter Cash
Talent was not rare; the ability to survive having it was.
Neal Stephenson
I was thrilled and amazed when I found out we won the Nobel Prize. The dedicated and talented women and men of the COBE team collaborated to produce the science results being recognized. This is truly such a rare and special honor.
John C. Mather
Queen Victoria was a woman of peerless common sense; her common sense, which is a rare gift at any time, amounted to genius. She had been brought up by her mother with the utmost simplicity, and she retained it to the end, and conducted her public and private life alike by that infallible guide.
E. F. Benson
To rise from error to truth is rare and beautiful.
Victor Hugo
It’s awesome to see something like ‘Inception’, which is just mind-blowing and amazing, and it actually resonates with the audiences. I feel like that’s rare.
Danny McBride
It’s society that disables an individual by not investing in enough creativity to allow for someone to show us the quality that makes them rare and valuable and capable.
Aimee Mullins
It’s very rare to watch a movie and think, ‘That’s the movie we shot!’ So many things happen, with edits and things getting cut out.
Jessica Rothe
In the case of ‘The Lovely Bones,’ I felt that it was subject matter not often dealt with in film, and with a tone that is also rare.
Peter Jackson
I am a rare millennial who managed to buy property thanks to a mix of highly lucrative TV panel show work and employing Gary Barlow as a financial adviser.
Joe Lycett
It’s rare to find someone excited over jury duty. If they’re out there, I’ve never met them. Not a one. When the summons for jury duty arrives in the mail, how many people scream, ‘Yes!’ and run to clear the calendar? None. Our first and only reaction is, ‘Oh, no,’ quickly followed by, ‘How can I get out of this?’
Regina Brett
Fugitive slaves were rare then, and as a fugitive slave lecturer, I had the advantage of being the first one out.
Frederick Douglass
I’m a happy guy, but if I’m in a rare dark mood, I won’t go out because I don’t want to be horrible to people.
Jerry Springer
I went to Dartmouth College so simply by being an Indian-American woman, I was already so statistically interesting. And then the fact that I didn’t want to do anything science-related, and I wanted to write comedy plays and act little bit – I mean, I became deeply interesting in college because of how rare that was.
Mindy Kaling
I believe to have been one of the rare drivers to have returned to Ferrari.
Jacky Ickx
Our influences are who we are. It’s rare that anything is an absolutely pure vision; even Daniel Johnston sounds like the Beatles. And that’s the problem with the bands I’m always asked about, the ones derivative of the early Seattle sound. They don’t dilute their influences enough.
Eddie Vedder
Let us beware of saying that death is the opposite of life. The living being is only a species of the dead, and a very rare species.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Well, you can’t throw heavy, analytical, thought-provoking songs at people 24/7. It’s been my experience over the last 20 years that on a rare occasion, in a live setting, if you can slow people down to listen to two good ballads, then you’re doing pretty good. Then throw a tempo at ’em. Then have fun.
Ronnie Dunn
I don’t think I had a script on ‘King Kong.’ But usually you read a script and then you go and audition for it. It’s rare when there’s no script. I sort of like the latter better, because I’m more successful at it.
Kyle Chandler
Every time I’m ever in L.A., if I have anytime off – which is rare – I’ll go straight to the basketball court and play. That’s a way for me to escape and get my mind off everything. I’m so competitive, so if I’m playing basketball, all I’m thinking about is winning.
Trevor Jackson
I’m like an actor who obnoxiously says he doesn’t watch his own TV show. It is extremely rare for me to read my own comics and have asked publishers to please stop sending them to me.
Christopher Priest
I had really great parents who always gave me lots of opportunity for choice, but I didn’t always realize how rare that was for a girl for them to say, ‘You can be a mom or have a career or do both or do something we haven’t thought of yet.’
Ally Condie
Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best. And there are remarkably rare ones, who just bring out the most of everything that even you don’t know that you have.
Cedi Osman
I wear stuff I regret all the time. It’s very rare that I look back at a picture and think it was all good.
Suki Waterhouse
As an actor, I like as much time with the material as possible and given the opportunity, time spent with the other actors in the scene. But that is a rare luxury in working in any TV series.
Vincent Piazza
Delphine Lucielle’s paintings are profound, unique, and moving. It is rare to find contemporary art that combines both beauty, innovation, and creates a new style of painting by fusing technology and nature. Delphine Lucielle is pushing the boundaries of what art is capable of.
Jerry Yang
Mystique is rare now, isn’t it? There aren’t that many enigmas in this modern world.
Benedict Cumberbatch
Perfect numbers like perfect men are very rare.
Rene Descartes
In those rare cases in which you have a dull knife and cooking to do, but no ceramic in sight, the top edge of a rolled-down car window will work just as well. Even a smooth stone or slab of concrete outside can work in a pinch.
J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
Mark Twain
I love doing comedy. You don’t get many good comedy scripts. They’re rare. But, I do love playing comedy. Even in drama, I like to try to find the humor because I think it’s very human.
Colm Meaney
So much of our fictional medievalism is distorted through a lens of Protestantism and the Reformation, slanted even further through Victorian anti-Catholicism. The depiction of actual medieval attitudes toward the Church is remarkably rare.
Judith Tarr
Humor is rare in science fiction… there’s so little of it that it automatically reminds you of other heroes with that acerbic humor when you find it.
John Scalzi
North Eurasia is one of the best examples of religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence of Islam and Christianity. This is a rare thing in today’s world, even in its most liberal parts.
Nursultan Nazarbayev
I have no idea how to become successful in children’s tv programming today other than to say that whereever you find that rare animal being pursued, insert yourself into its environment; get in the door in any position and work from within.
William Jackson
I remember every defeat I suffered as an amateur. They were rare enough to be burned into my brain, and that’s why I can’t bear the thought of losing.
Joe Calzaghe
It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours. It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom.
Dee Hock
I think being honest on TV is pretty rare. So if I can be that, I would like to be.
Neal Brennan
Megyn Kelly is one of those rare women who seamlessly combines professional excellence and family. She doesn’t need a catch phrase to define what she instinctively has accomplished. She just ‘does it.’
Judy Sheindlin
Beauty is one of the rare things which does not lead to doubt of God.
Jean Anouilh
Despite being such a brilliant director, Hansal Mehta is a simple and down to earth man. He is very sorted and driven by passion. So that’s a rare combination – being a good craftsman and a good human being.
Pratik Gandhi
It wasn’t until 1999 when my idols Mia Hamm and Kristine Lilly took home the women’s World Cup trophy at the Rose Bowl in front of 40 million TV viewers that I remember thinking how rare it was to see women play sports on TV.
Alex Morgan
If needed, I would have even given seven years of my life for ‘Baahubali,’ as such characters are rare to play in a lifetime for any actor. I consider myself very fortunate and lucky for it.
‘Jolly LLB’ is one of my favorite movies. Courtroom films are rare to come by in Telugu.
Not only I am an adoptee, but I also want to prove to everyone that being legally blind with a rare eye disease called Nystagmus that you can do and be anything if you put your mind to it and believe in yourself.
