Helen Mirren

I support repeal, but I think we ought to also spend time on the replacement side of that.

Chrissy Teigen
I guess I’ve grown to admire Queen Elizabeth II more. I’ve always struggled with my feelings about the Royal Family. I am a supporter. I’m not someone who thinks we should get rid of them. But what I’ve struggled with is the lack of emotionality that the Queen seems to share.

My mother told me Homer Ditto was not my father. Nope. Mom had had a fling with some other guy who was my dad. Some dude who didn’t stick around too long who Mom was happy to get rid of. She chose Homer, and Homer chose me, so he lent me his name even though I didn’t have his blood.
Beth Ditto
One has to get rid of his inhibitions, being an actor.

In 1998, the acting roles suddenly bottomed out. I was no longer getting scripts; even my agent stopped calling. When I finally got him on the phone to ask him what was going on, he paused, then said: ‘Well, Christine, you’re 45.’ I got rid of him.

If you would make the most of yourself, cut away all of your vitality sappers; get rid of everything which hampers you and holds you back, everything which wastes your energy, cuts down your working capital. Get freedom at any cost.
Orison Swett Marden
Nobody wants to get rid of the libel laws, but we want them to be fairer. If we drove down the costs you might end up with more people suing. The only people who can afford it now are the rich and the giant corporations.
Simon Singh
I actually rid myself of superstitions, but I do a quick 20-minute meditation before games.
Christen Press
Let’s get rid of the myth that I’m rich.

Those who worship God only, can get rid of anxiety of mind; others cannot.
I learned how to get rid of the Southern accent when I was, like, 11 years old and living in New York for the summer doing modeling and commercials and auditioning for Broadway. The mother I lived with for the summer taught me how to drop my Southern accent.

I have something called exercise bulimia, which is where you rid of your calories by over-exercising.
Jamie-Lynn Sigler
Getting rid of all the world records would be a bit of a radical move.

Meir Kahane
Ultimately, a running back has to get rid of tacklers without his blockers being a part of it.
Jim Brown
We’re very historically tried and true when it comes to our albums. We pick the best songs; we get rid of the songs we feel don’t fit on the album, and we don’t work on remixing or remastering albums.
Zacky Vengeance
We have too many cellphones. We’ve got too many internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.
Ray Bradbury
I’m kind of over people using the word ‘bae’. Let’s get rid of that.
Erin Foster
In the scope of a happy life, a messy desk or an overstuffed coat closet is a trivial thing, yet I find – and I hear from other people that they agree – that getting rid of clutter gives a disproportionate boost to happiness.
Gretchen Rubin
To truly rid the oceans of plastic, what we need to do is two things: One, we need to clean up the legacy pollution, the stuff that has been accumulating for decades and doesn’t go away by itself. But, two, we need to close the tap, which means preventing more plastic from reaching the oceans in the first place.
Boyan Slat
I knew all about Edward VIII’s abdication, George VI becoming the king and having a stammer, but nothing about how he got rid of it.
Geoffrey Rush
There’s a reason why, when Reagan became president, he started getting rid of regulations, and we had a booming economy.

Michael King
If I was on a march at the moment I would be saying to everyone: ‘Be honest with each other. Admit there are limitless possibilities in relationships, and love as many people as you can in whatever way you want, and get rid of your inhibitions, and we’ll all be happy.
Ian Mckellen
I’ve got rid of the ADD, but I do find it hard to concentrate sometimes.
Alfie Allen
No one’s playing records anymore, so find your favorite and frame it, then get rid of the rest – try selling or donating them.
Niecy Nash
You have three groups. One who is happy. Then players who are doubtful, but still feel they have a chance. And then, you have the losers at that moment, who will go to the second group and try to influence them. They are poison for your team. At Inter, and also at Crystal Palace, you’ve got to get rid of those players.
Frank de Boer
And this administration and this House leadership have said, quote-unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill. And now they’ve gotten rid of me and it will pass. You connect the dots.
Eric Massa
‘Absolute Water’ converts sewage water into water which can be even consumed – if only one can get rid of the taboo of drinking sewage water, which they do in many parts of the world!
Jim Sarbh
Rid yourself of anything that is not directed toward God.
Johannes Tauler
Of course, we knew that this meant an attack on the union. The bosses intended gradually to get rid of us, employing in our place child labor and raw immigrant girls who would work for next to nothing.
Rose Schneiderman
I decided to go to school for advertising and graphic design. That was what I was gonna do but acting is that thing, it’s like a splinter in your mind and you can’t get rid of it. So I decided to move to L.A. a few years ago and it just snowballed into this thing called ‘The Hunger Games.’
Dayo Okeniyi
I imagine that the intention is to get rid of them. The interests of security demand that we get rid of them.
Moshe Sharett
If I could push a button and get rid of all these dumb people flying Nazi flags and have them never show up – They are a big problem for the Right.
Mike Cernovich
In the second part of life you get rid of stuff you’ve accumulated.
Mikhail Baryshnikov
I’m like a fungus; you can’t get rid of me.
Adam Baldwin
There is no such thing as getting rid of nervousness.
Itzhak Perlman
Getting rid of the deductibility of state and local taxes will force the highest corporate tax states to lower their rates, or fewer corporations over time will headquarter there.
Stephen Moore
I don’t think I care about the hair as much as people think I do. It’s just kind of there. It’s not really a big deal to me. It actually drives me nuts. It’s always in my face if I don’t have a hat on. I might have to get rid of it.
Jacob deGrom
Sometimes in T20, you need to bowl only one over, and once the captain has given you that one over, irrespective of whether it is good or bad, that one over is out of the equation. That actually helps you, that one over. By the time the batsman figures out what you are trying to do, you get rid of one over.
MS Dhoni
There is an intellectual snobbery that, regrettably, many academics suffer from. They are proud their paper is only read by a small group of people – makes it very exclusive. Let’s get rid of that. If it’s truly important, people should be excited about it.
Gad Saad
We know that enlightened capital didn’t get rid of the slave trade.
Anand Giridharadas
I’ve had Botox and all that – why not? There’s no cream that gets rid of wrinkles; that’s a load of rubbish in my eyes. But Botox does.
Katie Price
My constituents say, ‘Congressman, have you balanced the budget?’ And I’m going to say, ‘Well, we’re working on it.’ And they are going to say, ‘Well, Congressman, did you get rid of Fannie and Freddie?’ And I’m going to say, ‘Well, we’re working on it.’
Stephen Fincher
The U.S. couldn’t even get rid of Saddam Hussein. And we all know that the EU is just a passing fad. They’ll be killing each other again in less than a year. I’m sick to death of all these fascist lawsuits.
Bill Gates
Pixar is filled with people who don’t get rid of their toys.
Lee Unkrich
You can’t drain the swamp, as President Trump has touted doing, without getting rid of Mitch McConnell.
Amy McGrath
Any part I do is a marriage of the words – what the playwright or producer or show runner’s vision is – to how I would play it. It took me a while to get rid of ‘Oh, they want it this way, so I’m going to do it how they want it.’
Christian Camargo
If you really want to get rid of the problems in the NFL, put Obama in charge of it: in a few months it will be so deep in debt it will have to go out of business – no more concussions.
Rush Limbaugh
The patriarchy is alive and well in Egypt and the wider Arab world. Just because we got rid of the father of the nation in Egypt or Tunisia, Mubarak or Ben Ali, and in a number of other countries, does not mean that the father of the family does not still hold sway.
Shereen El Feki
It’s all about communication and a dialogue between individuals – get rid of the labels, get rid of the shame, get rid of the stigmas and just be your most authentic self.
Matt Bomer
You have a responsibility to make inclusion a daily thought, so we can get rid of the word ‘inclusion.’
Theodore Melfi
Sometimes people give to charity because they have been persuaded to believe in a cause, sometimes just to get rid of you and sometimes because they are befuddled and confused.
Sara Pascoe
Just think how much poorer we would be today if the world would have had half as many people in the 19th century as it actually did. You can get rid of Thomas Edison or Louis Pasteur; take your pick.
Robert Zubrin
I’ll be very clear about this: I’m not a fan of getting rid of Dodd-Frank.
James P. Gorman
I go to the healthier foods that are less chemically treated. I am drinking lots of water to get rid of the toxins in my body. It’s a natural flushing. Water flushes your system and is also very good for your skin.
Aretha Franklin
Think about it – just getting rid of the fat doesn’t get rid of the toxins, which are reabsorbed into your body. This creates a vicious cycle. Losing weight without learning to eliminate chemicals is like a merry-go-round. And it’s why dieting doesn’t work.
Suzanne Somers
I don’t believe any person looking for work is fearful of political judgment. Government is a large institution, and if they believe that people are going to get rid of good employees for political reasons, that’s absurd.
Jan Brewer
The safest thing to do was get rid of the second breast. I just want to give myself the best chance possible to live.
Koo Stark
If you have to change the law to get more money, that’s a tax increase, and Americans for Tax Reform supports all efforts of tax reform, getting rid of deductions or credits, or something that’s misclassified, as long as you at the same time reduce rates so that it’s not a hidden tax.
Grover Norquist
I am so superstitious that I think even discussing this subject is dangerous and will probably bring me terrible luck. Having been raised a Catholic, superstition becomes almost part of your DNA. The challenge is to slowly rid yourself of these little delusions.
Anthony McCarten
Writing is one of the few professions in which you can psychoanalyse yourself, get rid of hostilities and frustrations in public, and get paid for it.
Octavia E. Butler
Since the Gothic, European sculpture has become overgrown with moss, weeds – all sorts of surface excrescences which completely concealed shape. It has been Brancusi’s special mission to get rid of this overgrowth and to make us once more shape-conscious.
Henry Moore
If you can get rid of the emotion and concentrate on the problem, you can solve the problem.
Richard Phillips
What’s really important is to simplify. The work of most photographers would be improved immensely if they could do one thing: get rid of the extraneous. If you strive for simplicity, you are more likely to reach the viewer.
William Albert Allard
We know that flat and non-hierarchical systems use information best. I’ve tried to do that with my own company because it works better that way. And society at large will work better as well if we can get rid of these old institutions and hierarchies. New innovations like the block chain can make this possible.
Patrick M. Byrne
My mind is constantly going. For me to completely relax, I gotta get rid of my cell phone.
Kenny Chesney
What’s love if not the thing you’ll do anything and everything to get back once lost? What’s hate if not the thing you’ll do anything and everything to get rid of once found?
Brian Celio
Gollum was so interesting to me because he’s morally ambivalent, and I love the notion of a quest that is to lose something. Not to gain, but to get rid of something.
Andy Serkis
‘Data exhaust’ is probably my least favorite phrase in the big data world ’cause it sounds like something you’re trying to get rid of or something noxious that comes out of the back of your car.
Rick Smolan
Iran is not getting rid of any of its nuclear plants. They’re not getting rid of anything.

Getting rid of all the food I was eating and going to this plant based diet it did take those few days to actually feel better, but when it got to the beginning of the third week I felt so good.
Hector Bellerin
I wake up in the morning and my mind starts making sentences, and I have to get rid of them fast – talk them or write them down.
Ernest Hemingway
I like to meditate. But I get rid of my stress at the gym.
Jason Statham
I think there is that very basic yearning for something or someone to be looking after us, for there to be a framework holding the universe together that is benign and intelligent. We’re not going to get rid of that; it’s just too scary to be that molecule flying around briefly in a vacuum.
Michel Faber
There were certain people who were out to get me. I know who those people were. They exist, believe me. They know that I know. They spent millions of dollars in order to try to get rid of me. I’m happy they lost most of their money.
Ehud Olmert
And you know, almost in a perverse way, I wish it had been undue influence because we know how to correct that. We get rid of the people who, in fact, were exercising that.
David Kay
Sometimes if you want to get rid of the gun, you have to pick the gun up.
Huey Newton
From paying off friends’ tax bills to rescuing stray dogs and stuffing ВЈ20 notes into the hands of homeless people, I can’t get rid of my money fast enough.
Julie Burchill
It’s about removing the barriers between producers and consumers. I want to get rid of that mindset so that people realize in order to create, you have to participate.
Peter Sunde
If I hadn’t had the rugby field to get rid of my aggression I would have been locked up a long time ago.
Gareth Thomas
You go through a process of refinement and getting rid of the excesses of your early youth in terms of your excitement about what theatre can do.
Stephen Daldry
I often find that having an idea in my head prevents me from doing something else. Working is therefore a way of getting rid of an idea.
Jasper Johns
I think we get too hung up on categories. Obviously, the book market has to categorise things, and it makes it easier for a reader to go into a bookshop and choose, but as a writer, it helps to get rid of all of that and imagine you are a storyteller around a campfire.
Matt Haig
I guess if you stay around long enough, they can’t get rid of you.
Paul Butterfield
You think that somehow they didn’t come after me to get rid of me because my vote is the deciding vote in the health care bill? Then, ladies and gentlemen, you live today in a world that is so innocent as to not understand what’s going on in Washington, D.C.
Eric Massa
You can get rid of the teacher certification requirements, and you’re still not going to have a rush of incredibly high-quality people going into teaching as long as teachers are valued in the way they currently are. The way we value people is by how much we pay them.
James Forman, Jr.
I don’t understand why people would want to get rid of pigeons. They don’t bother no one.
Mike Tyson
Cleaning is my favorite way to relax. I clear things out and get rid of the stuff I don’t need. When the food pantry and the refrigerator are organized, I feel less stressed.
Jennifer Morrison
As far as my favorite songs to perform live, most of the songs we did live were my favorite. If they weren’t, I would have gotten rid of them.
Johnny Ramone
We made some mistakes. We had some managers we didn’t like and had to get rid of, and that cost some money. Stuff like that. But overall, we did really well.
Robby Krieger
I can’t rid myself of the feeling that war is a product of the male nature.
Svetlana Alexievich
It’s ridiculous that we are in a place where we feel like we can classify and dismiss certain groups of people just because of the way they look, or we have these standards of health – like, cellulite is something you need to get rid of. No, it isn’t. It’s just a part of people’s bodies.
Zach Anner
Do you honestly think that if Senator Santorum becomes president, we’re going to get rid of contraceptives?
Foster Friess
You have to take care of your guys. If a guy underperforms, you get rid of him. If a guy overperforms, you take care of him.
Antonio Brown
I struggle with candida – usually it manifests on the skin and can be so pesty, painful, and irritating! It also feeds off sugar and gluten and is nearly impossible to rid yourself of.
Hannah Bronfman
The truth is that those at the top of British football do not care about getting rid of racism, they just don’t want to hear it or see it.
John Barnes
In practice, getting rid of crony capitalism is incredibly difficult.
Chrystia Freeland
With piracy, people think it’s about getting stuff for free. It’s not – it’s about getting rid of the middleman that stands between you and your enjoyment of the film or music.
Graham Linehan
I have found that every family has a strange remedy for any situation – from ‘Use Fantastic to get the scuff off your patent leather shoes!’ to ‘Soak an aspirin in a glass of water to get rid of a migraine.’
Nia Vardalos
I think we’ve already voted at the U.N., in the Security Council, to get rid of nuclear weapons. Let’s get rid of them. Let’s get rid of ours and then Iran will stop, I believe. And so everybody else will, because if everybody doesn’t have them, then we’re safe, at least safe from a nuclear attack.
Ted Turner
You see, as I go along, I’ve come to consider bravery as just about the most pernicious of virtues. Bravery is a horrible thing. The human race has it left over from the animal world and we can’t get rid of it.
James Jones
I feel I’m able to get rid of any demons lurking in my psyche through my writing, which leaves me free to create all of this and to enjoy our family life, stepping away from all the fictional traumas and the dramas. If I write about family in crisis, then I won’t have to live through it, I guess.
Jodi Picoult
But of course it’s always gonna be Suicide, our fingerprints, ya know? You can’t ever get rid of that.
Alan Vega
Money has never been my drive. I have never seen the shortage of money in my life, so for me, I don’t want to buy a silk pillow or a private jet… My drive is to achieve more than what my grandfather achieved; my drive is to make a name for myself, get rid of this ‘star son’ tag that has been attached to me.
Ranbir Kapoor
Experience proves that in this life peace and satisfaction are had, not by the listless but by those who are fervent in God’s service. And rightly so. For in their effort to overcome themselves and to rid themselves of self-love, they rid themselves of the roots of all passion and unrest.
Saint Ignatius
Because of the Korean free trade agreement, South Koreans who want Oregon blueberries are gonna see their prices go down because we will be getting rid of a 45 percent tariff on this Oregon product.
Ron Wyden
When you’re not able to play ball anymore, you see who’s really there for you. I would say that God works in mysterious ways, and He gets rid of your friends for you – the ones who were never really your real friends.
Stefon Diggs
I have a reputation for not turning up to sing. It’s something I want very badly to get rid of.
I sometimes think it’s like a weird elastic band. The more tragic your work is, the quicker you snap back. There’s a catharsis in telling a miserable old tale; you get rid of demons.
Anne-Marie Duff
In every area of the world where there is earthquake risk, there are still many buildings of this type; it is very frustrating to try to get rid of them.
Charles Francis Richter
If you could literally ‘rid’ yourself of your problems by voicing them, I’d be all for it. But since that isn’t so, why not reserve the spoken word for functional interactions and witticisms, if not declarations of love?
Amity Gaige
If ever you want to get rid of somebody you don’t want to talk to, just mention God. They’re out of there.
Tyson Fury
I wanted Puma to regain strength with the existing logo rather than try to get rid of the past.
Jochen Zeitz
I love red laser therapy or red light therapy and you can do it at your home and it’s really convenient. Kim Kardashian used it to get rid of her psoriasis and I’ve been using it for years.
Huda Kattan
The worst thing Spurs ever did was get rid of Keith Burkinshaw. They have never replaced him.
Graham Roberts
I would never bet against Peyton Manning. You know about the age and the neck and the strength. But I had George Blanda, and as he got older, he got smarter, and he just got rid of the ball quicker. I watch Peyton, and I see George Blanda.
John Madden
I drink protein shakes nonstop – three or four a day – and I run a lot, so you get rid of the bad carbs and keep the rest so you have the energy to make it through.
Shia LaBeouf
Rebuilding Afghanistan is not going to be solved by pouring billions in. Getting rid of the Taliban does not rid us of the problems of fundamentalism and instability.
James Wolfensohn
It’s Russia some people would like to get rid of. They are still afraid of our nuclear deterrent. We have our own foreign policy whether they like it or not.
Vladimir Putin
Let me announce this to the American people tonight one of the best things about this debate, as a Democrat from Massachusetts, I have proposed eliminating, getting rid of the alternative minimum tax.
Richard Neal
It stuns me how effective children can be in their messaging, and I believe that every child should enjoy that basic right to become an adult. Getting rid of childhood cancers is one effective way to reach that goal.
Alex Guarnaschelli
I studied voice for three months to get rid of my English accent. I changed my hair to blonde. I knew I could be sexy if I had to.
Deborah Kerr
The bottom line is we need a tax code that is more simpler, that is more fairer, that gets rid of the special carve-outs, the special lobbyist loopholes. That’s the direction we need to go.
Erik Paulsen
We need to rid our State Owned Enterprises of corruption because the money being siphoned out should be funding them.
Cyril Ramaphosa
The only way to clean up Chicago is to get rid of Capone.
Michael T. Flynn
I had to get rid of any idea of hell or any idea of the afterlife. That’s what held me, kept me down. So now I just have nothing but contempt for the institution of the church.
Frank McCourt
Pain is the mind. It’s the thoughts of the mind. Then I get rid of the thoughts, and I get in my witness, which is down in my spiritual heart. The witness that witnesses being. Then those particular thoughts that are painful – love them. I love them to death!
Ram Dass
I don’t know whether I want to improve religion or not. I prefer to get rid of it.
B. F. Skinner
I’d get rid of it, just get rid of the draft altogether. We’d just deal with the salary cap.

We must get rid of all the guns.
Sarah Brady
There was one day where I just stopped eating meat, but then the transition to get rid of the dairy and eggs took 12 years.
Austin Aries
Even if you’re Bill Gates, you’ve got problems. I’m sure he would probably easily give a few billion dollars to get rid of all the problems that he has.
Ben Carson
My sole ambition is to rid Mexico of the class that has oppressed her and given the people a chance to know what real liberty means. And if I could bring that about today by giving up my life, I would do it gladly.
Pancho Villa
We have to get rid of the constant fundraising that happens inside the Congress. Before, political parties used to raise money; now, individual members are raising money through the DCCC and the RCCC. It is absolutely corrupt.
Marcy Kaptur
Until we get rid of racial bias, sexism, homophobia in society, it will exist in all walks of society.
John Barnes
Kids are naturally inventive and curious and creative, but most adults have had that beaten out of them. Writing is a form of play; you have to get rid of all those internal censors that we adults have, the things that say, ‘Don’t go there, that’s not allowed.’
Monica Ali
The reason I hate publicists is because I think if we got rid of them everything would be on equal footing.
Adam Carolla
I don’t support getting rid of Social Security.
Ken Buck
Christians are nonviolent not, therefore, because we believe that nonviolence is a strategy to rid the world of war, but because nonviolence is constitutive of what it means to be a disciple to Jesus.
Stanley Hauerwas
Audiences aren’t going to get rid of me. One thing I can say, with absolute certainty, is that my shows will still be performed when I’m dead, buried and forgotten. They’re going to absolutely outlive me, which is a wonderful thing to think about.
Cameron Mackintosh
I really did have this powerful sense, when I was in New Orleans after the storm, of watching all these profiteers descend on Baton Rouge to lobby to get rid of the housing projects and privatise the school system – I thought I was in some science-fiction experiment.
Naomi Klein
Freecycle groups match people who have things they want to get rid of with people who can use them.
Geoff Mulgan
Take responsibility and make a relationship the best it can be. We’re all afraid of being hurt. Get rid of that fear. Be in the moment and enjoy the relationship – or you’ll ruin it.
Moran Atias
If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.
George Bernard Shaw
What we were all always saying with ‘The Wire’ was that there’s a whole group of people that America just sort of wants to throw away. They want to forget about them, and if they could, they’d get rid of them. They are Americans – they’re worth saving; they’re worth helping.
George Pelecanos
Climate change is real, and we need to work on a comprehensive approach. We eliminated sulfur dioxide in the air, and got rid of acid rain. We got rid of lead in gasoline. You can achieve these things when the private and public sectors work together.
John Fetterman
There’s something sort of intrinsic in being a Southerner that doesn’t go away. You can’t get rid of it, but it’s not something that’s terribly obvious.
Natalie Zea
Anxiety is part of creativity, the need to get something out, the need to be rid of something or to get in touch with something within.
David Duchovny
So instead of talking about theoretical ways of ending the war and violence, I say that we have to get rid of the individual asholes in each office and situation.
Colin Quinn
I’m a firm believer that if we could restore real parliamentary democracy, the best way to do that would be to get rid of political parties.
Elizabeth May
The real purpose of welfare is to get rid of poor people entirely. Everybody knows welfare has bad effects; that’s the point.
P. J. O’Rourke
I hope that Los Altos is one of the first cities to have self-driving cars, and if that’s true, well, awesome, because there’s a lot of parking lots that we could get rid of and use for parks. That would be amazing!
Anne Wojcicki
If you’ve got a big gut and you start doing sit-ups, you are going to get bigger because you build up the muscle. You’ve got to get rid of that fat! How do you get rid of fat? By changing your diet.
Jack LaLanne
I’m gonna keep Social Security without change, except I’m going to get rid of the waste, fraud, and abuse; same thing with Medicare.
Donald Trump
All the characters in my films are fighting these problems, needing freedom, trying to find a way to cut themselves loose, but failing to rid themselves of conscience, a sense of sin, the whole bag of tricks.
Michelangelo Antonioni
My mom gets mad because she’ll read on Twitter or some message board that Spencer Paysinger is no good, and the Giants need to get rid of him. I tell her to stop reading that stuff because, at the end of the day, the media has no say on what happens in the locker room.
Spencer Paysinger
Why I talk so seriously about art is that art is the only thing that helps people stay alive, and it is the only thing that has allowed people to create joy in this insane, suppressive universe. And art is the only thing that they can’t get rid of. They’ve tried, but ultimately they can’t stamp it out.
Juliette Lewis
It is time for Republicans in D.C. to fight. Too often, they give up; they negotiate with themselves. They said they would get rid of the unconstitutional amnesty. They didn’t do that. They said they would repeal Obamacare if we gave them the majority. They didn’t do that, either.
Bobby Jindal
Corruption is the enemy of development, and of good governance. It must be got rid of. Both the government and the people at large must come together to achieve this national objective.
Pratibha Patil
What we need to do is get rid of ‘men’s’ and ‘women’s’ sections and make sections that are, like, ‘dresses for tall people,’ ‘pants for short people,’ ‘jeans for people with hips,’ you know what I mean?
Asia Kate Dillon
Obamacare. Get rid of it. Period.
Tim Scott
Everyone confesses that exertion which brings out all the powers of body and mind is the best thing for us; but most people do all they can to get rid of it, and as a general rule nobody does much more than circumstances drive them to do.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
At its core, bitcoin is a smart currency designed by very forward-thinking engineers. It eliminates the need for banks, gets rid of credit card fees, currency exchange fees, money transfer fees, and reduces the need for lawyers in transitions… all good things.
Peter Diamandis
I think there are several departments we could completely get rid of, and we wouldn’t miss it.
Blake Farenthold
Lana Turner was adorable and funny. Jimmy Stewart was such a nice person. I quickly realized that if you’re not a nice person, you’re not going to last in this business. I mean, once your box office starts to drop off, like Veronica Lake, they’ll get rid of you fast.
Robert Osborne
Every time you work, you have to do it all over again, to rid yourself of this dross. I suppose for a person who is not an artist or not attempting art, it is not dross, because it is the common exchange of everyday life.
Carl Andre
Kinsey was trying to study sex scientifically, get rid of the overlay of culture and religion.
Bill Condon
The rare few, who, early in life have rid themselves of the friendship of the many.
James Whistler
We have a legal and moral obligation to rid our world of nuclear tests and nuclear weapons. When we put an end to nuclear tests, we get closer to eliminating all nuclear weapons. A world free of nuclear weapons will be safer and more prosperous.
Ban Ki-moon
I didn’t want to deal in poetry. I got rid of that after a few months.
Tom Wesselmann
I feel like the phone was in my way. So I got rid of the phone to focus.
Young Thug
I hate Cha Cha Cha the most on ‘Strictly.’ If I was in charge of ‘Strictly’ I’d get rid of Cha Cha Cha.
Kevin Clifton
I often do crazy siren noises, or, like, a high-pitched dolphin, just to make sure that all my range is there. I make random noise and blurt out random sounds, to make sure I get rid of any bad nerves. I want to make sure to feel as confident as possible.
Ella Henderson
I’m easy. Very easy. I’ll tell you why I am easy. If someone is no good, I get rid of them. It is no good being tough on somebody who can’t do the job. If he can do the job, then there is no point in being tough with him.
Harry Triguboff
I see robotic technology getting rid of the dangerous, the dirty, and the just plain boring jobs. Some people say, ‘You can’t. People won’t have anything to do.’ But we found things that were a lot easier than backbreaking labor in the sun and the fields. Let people rise to better things.
Rodney Brooks
Desperation is the perfume of the young actor. It’s so satisfying to have gotten rid of it. If you keep smelling it, it can drive you crazy. In this business a lot of people go nuts, go eccentric, even end up dead from it. Not my plan.
Uma Thurman
Dry-aging happens when meat has been left to hang out in a temperature- and moisture-controlled environment. Over time, the meat’s natural enzymes begin to break down the connective tissue and rid the meat of moisture, which results in a rich, nutty, and tender piece of beef.
Brad Leone
Exercise is a great way to get rid of stress and anxiety. It clears the head and gets rid of all that stuff that is annoying you and really isn’t all that important. It filters out any grouchie-ness – it’s a great mental filter.
Denise Austin
I got rid of my place in L.A. I had this beautiful condo in Taluca Lake, but I was like, ‘Why am I paying for this when I’m all over?’
Sydney Sweeney
As for the future, we are equally determined to explore all possibilities of getting rid, once and for all, of the huge Arab minority which originally threatened us.
Moshe Sharett
I think the market is always going to be around. The goal is not to say, let’s get rid of the market, because the market does render a huge number of services, and I don’t want to have a fight about the price of something every time I buy a book or a bottle of water.
Susan George
When I’m dancing with any woman, I immediately get rid of intimacy barriers. I just give her a big hug and crack on.
Anton du Beke
I was getting a little bored with my hair. It’s kind of a symbolic thing, just getting rid of the past, moving forward. It’s amazing what a reaction you get when you cut your hair.
Pamela Anderson
If you think you’re going to do 100 crunches and a plank and burn away belly fat, you’re not. Yes, you’re going to make the area stronger, but it’s not going to get rid of the fat. So do yourself a favor and, once and for all, let that idea go.
Gunnar Peterson
Don’t accept the old order. Get rid of it.
John Lydon
Some people have been talking about – every place I go, they bring up the issue of foreign aid. I go, ‘You can’t get rid of all foreign aid.’
Dan Webster
I would say I am one of those guys who teams are looking for a reason to get rid of most of the time.
Chris Hogan
The thing about the NBA, if you have a weakness, they are going to expose it on the first day of practice. You have to get rid of your weaknesses, and your strengths have to be as sharp as anything.
Chris Mullin
There should be a global commitment to try and get rid of UNHCR refugee camps and long-term people in those camps.
Malcolm Fraser
I don’t miss scenes at all the way that I used to miss them when I was younger making a film. It’s actually quite fun to get rid of them now.
Paul Thomas Anderson
We don’t teach kids how to think anymore. We’re getting rid of the classics – high school is all about self-esteem.
Rick Harrison
The desire to share is not a vague, windy sentiment, not when you see the massive rise in live concerts in response to the phenomenon of downloading music… People want to get rid of the headphones and be part of a shared experience.
Richard Eyre
I go where the revolution is, and the revolution is Ron Paul. Ron Paul is a champion of the Constitution. He’s about getting rid of the Federal Reserve and shrinking federal government.
Christine Ebersole
And the big issue here, I think, is that the publisher took over the editorial pages, a guy named Jeff Johnson. He’s an accountant from Chicago, doesn’t know anything about what newspapers are supposed to be about, and he made a decision to get rid of the column.
Robert Scheer
We can get rid of red tape.
Charlie Daniels
I am always keen to discover something new, but my advice is always to exfoliate. Get rid of those dead, dry cells; then the new skin is ready for moisturising, and you find your inner dewy, youthful glow. It’s in there somewhere.
Money is great, but history is something that you can never get rid of and act like it didn’t happen.
Bernard Hopkins
These false barriers that we’ve erected of space and race, all these illusions that we’ve allowed to infect us like toxins, we’ve got to rid ourselves of that. We are a better nation when we are ultimately united in a common purpose and a common cause.
Cory Booker
You get rid of the fear of death by understanding that it is an integral fact of our existence. You do that through will and reason.
G. Gordon Liddy
I’m a selective pack rat. There’s some things I have no problem getting rid of and others I hold onto dearly.
Will Ferrell
Editing is now the easiest thing on earth to do, and all the things that evolved out of word processing – ‘Oh, let’s put that sentence there, let’s get rid of this’ – have become commonplace in films and music too.
Brian Eno
It would be a sad story to get rid of religious belief, national identity, family, and even sexual identity. That’s not freedom.
Viktor Orban
People talk about ‘getting rid of the old image’, and I guess there’s some merit in that. But the truth is that people loved ‘The Wonder Years’ – I can’t turn my back on it.
Danica McKellar
I hate bands that hang around, like, 10 years too long – they’re like the drunk at a party you can’t get rid of.
Al Jourgensen
Over the holidays, and even during filming, I realized that I actually like my body, even if it’s not perfect according to the book. I just feel sexy. For the first time, I don’t want to get rid of the curves. I just want to tone it up. My body is comfortable, and it’s not unhealthy, so I’m going to rock with it.
I always thought that there was something in hip-hop culture that was the misfit of all the musical styles, where they didn’t really belong. They’re kind of like, ‘No, we’re a real culture! We’re not going anywhere, you can’t get rid of us!’ I really liked that there was a rebelliousness about it. I connected with that.
Iggy Azalea
Now, the president would like to do tax reform, which would obviously lower rates for most people in America and make the tax code fair and get rid of loopholes and special treatment. But absent tax reform, the president believes the right way to get our fiscal house in order is ask the wealthy to pay their fair share.
David Plouffe
I’ve learnt that if you can’t get rid of something, you have to find a way to live with it.
Amanda de Cadenet
The mystery of the Christian life is that Christ expects us to flee sin and the devil, but does not expect us to rid ourselves of either on this side of glory. Repentance is a way of life, and so is the pursuit of godliness. I wish every Christian could be reminded of these two things.
Kevin DeYoung
My father is from North Carolina, and he got rid of his drawl really fast. He’s very much about speaking correctly, enunciating in certain ways.
Boots Riley
We could only solve our problems by cooperating with other countries. It would have been paradoxical not to cooperate. And therefore we needed to put an end to the Iron Curtain, to change the nature of international relations, to rid them of ideological confrontation, and particularly to end the arms race.
Mikhail Gorbachev
I actually had the chance to sign for Newcastle before I went to West Ham; I didn’t in the end because they had got rid of their reserve team. There were a few clubs interested but I liked what West Ham had to offer and never regretted signing for them, I loved it straight away.
Michael Carrick
Narendra Modi promised a future and represented a hope. He wanted to rid the nation of a non-performing, corrupt government. People voted for him.
Arun Jaitley
Most trainers here, they ride whoever’s hot. If they get cold, boom, they get rid of him. But for some reason, I stick with a jockey the longest and when you do have the separation it’s a story.
Bob Baffert
Life… is not simply a series of exciting new ventures. The future is not always a whole new ball game. There tends to be unfinished business. One trails all sorts of things around with one, things that simply won’t be got rid of.
Anita Brookner
Bugs are a great pest in Colorado. They come out of the earth, infest the wooden walls, and cannot be got rid of by any amount of cleanliness. Many careful housewives take their beds to pieces every week and put carbolic acid on them.
Isabella Bird
My worry about this exclusive focus on Trump – the personality and how all of this is so unprecedented – is that then the solution seems to be, ‘Well, we’ll just get rid of Trump.’
Naomi Klein
If somebody is here illegally, and they commit a crime, chances are they’re going to commit another one. So let’s get rid of them.
Corey Stewart
We can reduce our deficit, and do it in a much more balanced way than sequestration, simply by fixing our tax code to get rid of needless giveaways.
Sheldon Whitehouse
When I started writing ‘Batman,’ I lobbied heavily to get rid of Robin – or at least not use him in the stories I wrote. Fighting crime with a teenager dressed in primary colors while you’re sporting a gray-and-black outfit always struck me as child endangerment, if not abuse.
Jim Starlin
There’s a certain amount of sympathy here for the Bush administration’s problem, which is they would like to get rid of Saddam Hussein and they would like to have the Kurds autonomous.
Les Aspin
Most of my advances were by mistake. You uncover what is when you get rid of what isn’t.
R. Buckminster Fuller
I want to be a good person. I don’t want to fail. I want to learn from my mistakes, rid myself of distractions, and run into the arms of Jesus. Most of the time, however, I feel like I am running away from Jesus into the arms of my own clutteredness.
Mike Yaconelli
Truly, the only way to prove that we can rid the oceans of plastic is to actually go out there and deploy the world’s first ocean-cleaning system.
Boyan Slat
I wrote my first novel in the same conditions as most first novelists – I had a full-time job, I shared an apartment, I had no time – and so I became a compulsive outliner of everything. Ever since then, my process has consisted of trying to forcibly rid myself of that compulsion.
Jonathan Dee
I don’t think I have HIV. I don’t think that I ever had HIV. I think I had hepatitis. I got rid of the hepatitis, and since then, every single time I have tested for HIV, it has been negative. The original test was a false positive.
Tommy Morrison
In fact, most people are being squeezed in their little cubicle, and their creativity is forced out elsewhere, because the company can’t use it. The company is organized to get rid of variants.
Scott Adams
If we can rid the world of financial centres that thrive on lack of transparency, non-cooperation, and weak regulation, an important step towards a fairer and cleaner world economy will have been achieved.
Jose Angel Gurria
There is an increasing demand that the president and Secretary Hull get rid of the unteachable group in the State Department of men who have not learned, after ten years of experience, that appeasement has never worked anywhere, at any time.
Elmer Davis
I’m not going to get rid of my house in Vegas. I love that house.
Drew Scott
I got addicted to Tetris, playing it in my basement, I was missing all these airplane flights over it. After the fourth one that I missed, I realized I needed to get rid of this thing – so ever since then, I don’t play video games any more.
Bam Margera
Digital is the only way to get rid of corruption and unaccounted cash.
Arundhati Bhattacharya
Bin Laden always wanted to get rid of Mubarek and Ben Ali and Gaddafi and so on, claiming that they were all infidels working for America, and in fact, it was millions of ordinary people who peacefully, more or less – certainly in the case of Tunisia and Egypt – got rid of them.
Robert Fisk
Once you’re a football player, you’re a football player for life. You always think of yourself in terms of that. We all do. It’s hard to get rid of when you can’t play anymore.
Pete Carroll
We must rid this nation of the United Nations, which provides the communist conspiracy with a headquarters here on our own shores, and which actually makes it impossible for the United States to form its own decisions about its conduct and policies in Europe and Asia.
John T. Flynn
A corporation’s responsibility is to the shareholders, not its retirees and employees. Companies are doing everything they can to get rid of pension plans and they will succeed.
Ben Stein
Cellphones are very addictive. Even if one goes to rehab to get rid of this addiction, it’s not going to work.
Saswata Chatterjee
Who do you think made the first stone spears? The Asperger guy. If you were to get rid of all the autism genetics, there would be no more Silicon Valley.
Temple Grandin
It’s easy to get rid of things when there is an obvious reason for doing so. It’s much more difficult when there is no compelling reason.
Marie Kondo
The mob’s not coming back in the Teamsters Union. We’ve gotten rid of them, and we’re free to be free of government supervision.
James P. Hoffa
It’s funny how the hippies and the punks tried to get rid of the conservatives, but they always seem to get the upper hand in the end.
There’ll always be that prep in me that I can’t seem to get rid of.
Chloe Sevigny
This is to LeBron James: If you want to be the best, get rid of the comparisons. Get rid of all the comparisons that are out there. That’s what Michael Jordan did.
B. J. Armstrong
I think sometimes negative campaigning, like so much, is in the eye of the beholder, and I don’t think we’ll ever get rid of it.
Peter Jennings
You get rid of the mistakes by playing hard.
Patrick Beverley
I was very much into buying contemporary art, but I’ve just decided I want to get rid of it all. Not that it’s not great art, but all of a sudden my mood has changed, and I want to go back to seventeenth- and eighteenth-century masters.
Sylvester Stallone
It took me about 10 years to get rid of. I’m all right now, though, lovely, I’m throwing some nice darts at the moment, but every now and then I get a bit of a jump. I wish I could find a cure, I’d make a bloody fortune.
Eric Bristow
You can’t get rid of it with exercise alone. You can do the most vigorous exercise and only burn up 300 calories in an hour. If you’ve got fat on your body, the exercise firms and tones the muscles. But when you use that tape measure, what makes it bigger? It’s the fat!
Jack LaLanne
Tax reductions are usually simpler and less distortive. I’m certainly willing to look at getting rid of tax deductions/credits, and go to dramatically reduced rates.
Grover Norquist
Once you get rid of integrity the rest is a piece of cake.
Larry Hagman
There’s a lot of noise in the world. And one of the beautiful things about doing theater and film is the absence of that noise or, perhaps, the adding of that noise where it’s helpful in telling the story. I’m always trying to get rid of that noise. The more you do it, the better you get.
Michael Stuhlbarg
The presidents of colleges have to have some courage to step forward. You can’t limit alcohol in college sports, you have to get rid of it.
Dean Smith
So many schools are getting rid of music programs and it’s really sad because I know that when I started singing and stuff it was something that I always wanted to do and I never believed in myself to be able to do it.
Hilary Duff
Get rid of debt now.
Suze Orman
I think the key to getting rid of illegal immigration, no matter where its coming from, is that you need to have a good legal apparatus for immigration.
Rand Paul
I can sit in my room and write a song that I think might be a hit. I can sort of make myself do that, and then I’ll play it to a friend, and they’ll say, ‘Oh, that’s nice.’ But when something happens to me, and I sit down and write a song to get rid of my emotions, they’ll turn around and say, ‘Wow, that’s great.’
I love hot dogs. That’s the only thing I can’t get rid of.
A. J. Green
When young people hear auto-tune, they think that’s real R&B. You have to get rid of all of the gimmicks.
Jeffrey Osborne
You can’t get rid of poverty by giving people money.
P. J. O’Rourke
Long before the terrifying potential of the arms race was recognized, there was a widespread instinctive abhorrence of nuclear weapons, and a strong desire to get rid of them.
Joseph Rotblat
You need not aspire for or get any new state. Get rid of your present thoughts, that is all.
Ramana Maharshi
Having an intelligent secretary does not get rid of the need to read, write, and draw, etc. In a well functioning world, tools and agents are complementary.
Alan Kay
True enough, the Fed needs radical reforms. In particular, it needs to replace its failed forecasting models and be rid of the academics who overwhelm the Fed system.
Lawrence Kudlow
It’s easier to get rid of things when you’re giving them to someone who can use them, but don’t let this kind intention become a source of clutter itself. I have a friend who has multiple piles all over her house, each lovingly destined for a particular recipient.
Gretchen Rubin
I can’t throw books away. My wife is always telling me to get rid of some.
Matthew Macfadyen
We got rid of a terrible dictator. We gave the Iraqi people an opportunity for a new life under a representative form of government.
Colin Powell
Thank God, I have sort of a pan-European accent rather than Russian, which doesn’t sound very pleasantly to Americans. For them, we speak with a rather rude pitch, and that might be our actors’ problem there. Now I’ve begun working with language coaches in Los Angeles to get rid of the accent completely.
Yuliya Snigir
If you’re glued together right and honorable, you will succeed. Get in there and get rid of stupidities and avoid bad people. Try teaching that to your grandchildren. The best way is by example. Fix yourself.
Charlie Munger
To change the media, you’re gonna have to totally throw out every journalism school and get rid of everybody in every newsroom, and then you’re gonna have to change the grade school and middle school and high school curriculum.
Rush Limbaugh
One of the misfortunes of our time is that in getting rid of false shame we have killed off so much real shame as well.
Louis Kronenberger
I think if you’ve held onto a character for several years and then you’re getting rid of that character, it’s going to be traumatic.
Dominic Monaghan
I think that’s a very good point they’re bringing into Formula One at the moment, to get rid of all the electronics. And I think that’s what a Formula One driver needs. That’s why they are a Formula One driver. They need to drive themselves.
Jos Verstappen
Rewriting is a large part of the whole job. And get rid of stuff that’s not working. Just pare it down until it’s a beautiful thing you can hand in, probably late, to your editor.
Kurt Loder
I love the fact that I can make a podcast in my house and tens of thousands of people will hear it. I also like that it’s gotten rid of a lot of gatekeepers.
Neal Brennan
Retirement is not in my vocabulary. They aren’t going to get rid of me that way.
Betty White
The reason we have cancer and heart disease is the same reason you can’t get rid of the wear and tear on your tires on your car: as soon as you use them, you are wearing them away. You can’t make eternal tires, and it’s the same with the human body.
S. Jay Olshansky
For me, meditation is a practice to get rid of useless junk cluttering my mind and useless ticks inhabiting my body.
Tara Stiles
I think you can’t have the monarchy without the coronation. I think you would have to get rid of the whole kit and caboodle.
Claire Foy
In liberating Iraq, we have rid the nation and the rest of the world from the danger of Saddam Hussein.
Elizabeth Dole
I’ve never worked in my natural accent, having studied so hard to get rid of it when I moved to England as a child where I was bullied at school for ‘talking funny.’
Gina Bellman
I’m still one who says that we can get rid of the Internal Revenue Service if we would pass the fair tax, which is a tax on consumption rather than a tax on people’s income, and move power back where the founders believed it should have been all along.
Mike Huckabee
It’s now clear that from the very moment President Bush took office, Iraq was his highest priority as unfinished business from the first Bush Administration. His agenda was clear: find a rationale to get rid of Saddam.
Edward Kennedy
When you are editing, the final master is Aristotle and his poetics. You might have a terrific episode, but if people are falling out because there are just too many elements in it, you have to begin to get rid of things.
Ken Burns
Europe is my home, Europe is my continent. Europe is where we live. The European Union is a political bureaucratic organization that took away our identity and our national sovereignty. So, I would get rid of the European Union and be a nation-state again.
Geert Wilders
I come from the school who thought the Internet could be the great democratising force, that getting rid of the gatekeepers was a positive move.
Beeban Kidron
When I was young, I first went into the theatre which opened up across from my house. My mum and dad put me in there, not to become an actor or anything but to get rid of my shyness, which was so bad, to the point it was painful. My time there was all about encouragement and improvisation.
Martin Kemp
I like getting rid of things. I really do.
Matt Lauer
A book may be compared to your neighbor: if it be good, it cannot last too long; if bad, you cannot get rid of it too early.
Rupert Brooke
You don’t have to destroy an entire industry to rid it of corruption.
Dan Donovan
What made al Qaeda retrieve the doctrine of militant jihad, and Breivik the ideas of crusade and reconquest, is a sense of siege. So, we should help both Westerners and Muslims get rid of that sense by easing their political tensions and by fostering dialogue between them.
Mustafa Akyol
We should get rid of ‘tick box’ measures that do nothing to address underlying inequality in areas like employment. And we should interrogate the claims of victimization made by some organizations to get their slice of pie.
Munira Mirza
Some people have a hard time getting rid of stuff. If that’s you, pray for God to give you the courage to get rid of things you don’t really need or things He wants you to give away. This will help keep your surroundings organized and clutter-free.
Joyce Meyer
It’s crazy how many nude lip crayons I own – I probably need to get rid of some.
Khloe Kardashian
Surely a long life must be somewhat tedious, since we are forced to call in so many trifling things to help rid us of our time, which will never return.
Samuel Johnson
To me, it feels like ‘The Doctor’ has to have a long coat, and that’s something imprinted on me from childhood, because he always did. And there’s something heroic in a flapping coat, but at the same time, I need to get rid of it sometimes and just be a scrawny guy in a suit that doesn’t quite fit.
David Tennant
Last night, two men tried to force my shutters. I recognized them: they are two of Rodin’s Italian models. He told them to kill me. I am in his way; he wants to get rid of me.
Camille Claudel
We can get rid of all the plastic bags and plastic straws in the world – and we need to – but nothing is going to get better until we can make the people at the top see that there are changes to be made.
Oliver Sykes
For ‘Dum Maro Dum,’ I had a diction tutor, as I had to get rid of my Hyderabadi Hindi and learn Goan Hindi. It wasn’t easy, because these two kinds of Hindi were mutually incompatible. I had to unlearn one kind of Hindi and then learn a new kind.
Rana Daggubati
I find an apple before singing really, really helps… It’s like there’s something in the pectin in the apple that helps get rid of vocal clicks.
Freya Ridings
I came to office promising major ethics reform to end the culture of self-dealing. And today, that ethics reform is a law. While I was at it, I got rid of a few things in the governor’s office that I didn’t believe our citizens should have to pay for. That luxury jet was over-the-top. I put it on eBay.
Sarah Palin
What did winning a Grammy do for me? It made me want to get rid of my Grammy, pack it away, and never see it again. It made me not want to speak to anyone who wanted to speak about my Grammy.
Fantastic Negrito
It is time to get rid of the harmful and dangerous practice of offshore drilling once and for all.
Jeff Van Drew
I’m a recovering jersey wearer who can’t bear to get rid of the blaze-orange Knicks warmup top that makes me look like James Carville on a highway repair crew.
Steve Rushin
With small spaces in particular you have to really follow the rule that if it’s not absolutely beautiful or absolutely functional, then get rid of it.
Jeremiah Brent
A society that gets rid of all its troublemakers goes downhill.
Robert A. Heinlein
A four percent growth strategy means you fix a convoluted tax code. You get in and you change every aspect of regulations that are job killers. You get rid of Obamacare and replace it with something that doesn’t suppress wages and kill jobs.
Jeb Bush
Because of my childhood where I was constantly by myself, I always feel lonely. I have a lot of people that I absolutely love and I know love me but I can’t get rid of that feeling of loneliness no matter who I’m with – even with my children.
Natalia Vodianova
Prejudices are not easily got rid of as an old coat which is no longer thought of.
Nicolas Malebranche
There’s only so much that you can control, especially when the game speed is super, super fast, and guys are flying at you, and you’re trying to make a play and get rid of the ball.
Deshaun Watson
You can have all of the laws and protection in place, but how do you get rid of homophobia? This is something that the U.S. is going to have to deal with.
James Costos
I believe, if done correctly, eliminating Saddam and liberating Iraq could be the ‘Normandy Invasion’ or ‘fall of the Berlin Wall’ of our generation… the Iraqi people are eager to be rid of Saddam, and there is equally encouraging evidence that republican principles could thrive there.
Pete Hegseth
To get rid of depression, I swim with dolphins.
Patti Stanger
We need to get rid of bullying. We need to get rid of abuse. We need to get rid of harassment. We need to get rid of the casting couch. Instead, we need to build the bench.
Nancy Dubuc
We may be living in a modern world but people still believe in ‘Icchadhari Nagins’ and still visit temples to rid themselves of ‘sarp dosh.’
Sudha Chandran
Just performing is where I’m happiest, and gets me rid of my troubles and worries.
Tito Jackson
The problem is not getting rid of fear, but using it properly.
Zig Ziglar
I use pure acetone Nail Polish Remover from Nails Inc. to really strip the nail. It’s actually important to dehydrate your nail a little bit to get rid of all of the oil before you put color on; then the color will really stick. Then, I use OPI Bond Aid. It’s a liquid dehydrator that you paint onto each nail.
Eva Chen
I think the best solution to this challenge, and I accept there is a challenge with homophobic bullying, is to make sure we get rid of the bullying rather than feeling we have to take kids out of our schools and teach then somewhere else. That would be the best approach.
George Osborne
We are not going to get rid of the digital media – nor should we want to – and so our challenge is to use the media to determine the truth, rather than to let the media obfuscate matters.
Howard Gardner
I am trying to Marie Condo the house starting with my books, although it’s really hard to part with them! But I really want to de-clutter and get rid of stuff I haven’t used for six months, whether it’s clothes, bags, or shoes.
Shabana Azmi
We need to get rid of the 16th amendment, and return to the original system that funds government with a variety of tariffs and duties.
Alan Keyes
I believe getting rid of the divide between men and women will truly establish what it is to be equal. Fashion is increasingly acting as a weapon of change, inspiring ideas that blur that division, albeit in a subliminal manner.
Masaba Gupta
I’ve never been shown how to get rid of my anger. I think I do it through my music.
