Lin-Manuel Miranda
The typical response from people when I tell them I’m diabetic is, ‘Oh, I’m sorry to hear that.’ You know, I’m not. I’m a better athlete because of diabetes rather than despite it. I’m more aware of my training, my fitness and more aware of nutrition. I’m more proactive about my health.

The film [Dream of Life] came together when we started editing; it was organic, it became nonlinear and it was its own animal. And I didn’t want to tame it, either. I wanted it to be different. It’s not your typical documentary.
Steven Sebring
I went to an all-girls pre school where everyone went off to Harvard or Yale, and I had zero interest in doing so. I think they thought I was on drugs. There was a neighboring all-boys school, so we’d get together and do dumb things. It was your typical Catholic-American upbringing.

Kalki Koechlin

My go-go dancing was not your typical go-go dancing: I really was doing performance art. I would do dramatic, elaborate lyricals across the bar. I learned a lot, actually, as an artist during that time.
Annaleigh Ashford

The only time I was popular at school was the day I won the debating competition for my house.
David Starkey
Arnold Schwarzenegger is blaming man for global warming. And today, Al Gore agreed with him. That’s so typical. Two cyborgs, ‘Oh, let’s blame the humans.’
Jay Leno
Your typical business just measures the metrics that have to do with the profitability of the business one way or another. But you can have metrics that measure employee happiness and the morale. You can also do direct customer surveys; you can track it over time. You can do supplier satisfaction scores as well.
John Mackey
A typical master. Right to the end, he didn’t give me a chance to get a word in edgeways. Which is a pity, because at that last moment I’d have liked to tell him what I thought of him. Mind you, since in that split second we were, to all intents and purposes, one and the same, I rather think he knew anyway.
Jonathan Stroud
I don’t feel that I’ve had a life of abuse or that I am a victim in any way. My life is pretty typical of a lot of Americans of my generation who grew up in the sixties in families like mine that were sort of unconventional.

A typical agent in New York gets 400 query letters a month. Of those, they might ask to read 3-4 manuscripts, and of those, they might ask to represent 1.

The president we have today is a typical Washington politician that’s prone to hyperbole and decisiveness and false outrage. And I think it’s very sad – very sad to watch.
Marco Rubio

James A. Michener

Garance Dore

Timothy Gowers
Jolt is for Windows programmers. It’s typical IBM PC: it goes in brown and comes out yellow. Mountain Dew is for Macintosh programmers: it goes in yellow and comes out yellow. It’s WYSIWYP.
Guy Kawasaki
We are a very typical Spanish family – a bullfighter, an actress, a flamenco dancer and singer!
Paz Vega

Matt McGorry
To young people born under the weird planet of the SAT, intelligence was equated with agility, with raw acuity.

Marc Koska
Along with enough sleep and taking proper supplements, I steam – in my steam shower. I find it’s very healing, more than just your typical ‘tea and honey.’

The typical white intellectual considers himself superior to ordinary white folks for two contradictory reasons. First, he constantly proclaims his belief in human equality, but they don’t. Second, he has a high IQ, but they don’t.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar
I’m not a very typical singer.
Samuel Larsen

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
I have no doubt that President George W. Bush – a man, in my experience, of extremely kind and generous instincts, and back in Austin even a rescuer of stray animals – would be appalled by the conditions of a typical American factory farm or packing plant.
Matthew Scully
I was privileged because my father was a policeman, and we lived in town. Many people in Malawi are from typical villages. My grandmother insisted I should be in both worlds, and so I needed to be acquainted with village life.

Susan Fiske

Do portraits of people in familiar and typical attitudes, above all give to their face the same choice of expression that one gives to their body.

Paul Nassif
I was…a journalist…though my typical beat was freelancing articles on Canadian politics, which never included any mention of demonic phenomena, though it might explain the rise of the neoconservatives.
Kelley Armstrong
Growing up, I wanted to be a musician. My mother, in typical Filipino-mom fashion, would always make me go up in front of people at parties to sing. Back then, as a kid, I was mortified. In retrospect, I see that doing that as a child helped me get over my fear of being in front of people.
Jacob Batalon
Sometimes I do readings and people can’t stop laughing, but I’m reading about pretty tragic things. I think Soviet humor is a desperate humor, rather typical of very different nations, of Jewish people, Ukrainians, and of course, Russians. It’s despair – just keep laughing, until you are dead.
Alina Bronsky
Working in network sitcom arenas, whenever you decide to depart from the norm and tell a story that’s not typical, I think you’re always a little bit nervous.
Nahnatchka Khan

Morton Feldman
The R.I.P.D. picture is like a graphic novel, I guess. I don’t know if it’s like a typical kind of comic book. But there is great source material for those kinds of films.
Ryan Reynolds
Now, the typical way you make good things happen in Washington is you find a bunch of wealthy companies who agree with you.
Aaron Swartz
I knew that there was an aspect to this story that was beyond the typical and that it was something very important about America, about our culture, and about bringing a story to a new generation that perhaps didn’t know the details of it, (and) hadn’t had the visceral experience that this film is [42].
Harrison Ford
The next day, we shot ‘I Want You Back,’ and that was a 14-hour day. That’s typical. By the end of the day, my knees and ankles are killing me.
Grant Gustin
I much prefer the company of the crew, the sort of ‘blue-collar working person.’ I much more have that sensibility than what the public perceives as what a typical actor would have.
Michael Cudlitz
I’ll continue to make the typical Adam Sandler comedies.
Adam Sandler
My mom is a very warm, typical sort of Jewish-mother type. And my dad has a somewhat, um, different personality.
Peter R. Orszag

Garry Kasparov
We had a very upwardly mobile economy, and that peaked around the 1950s when the typical middle-class American family consisted of a father with a job and stay-at-home mom who took care of the kids.
Peter Schiff
Sir Alex Ferguson sent me a letter wishing me good luck before my fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. He also sent me a United shirt, signed by all of the players. It was a really nice touch and typical of the man who has always made himself available to managers in this country whenever they’ve needed advice.
Ricky Hatton
I am all in favor of pay equity for women, but this kind of legislation, as is typical of what’s being proposed by my friends on the other side of the aisle, opens us up to lawsuits for all kinds of problems.
John McCain
The song ‘Laughing Down Crying’ is not a typical Daryl song.
Daryl Hall
I’m a typical No 9: always in the box, strong, good in the air.
Aleksandar Mitrovic

Stephen F. Lynch
I hear daily from Hoosier veterans who are forced to wait months on end for their disability claims to be processed. Unfortunately, this is typical.
Jackie Walorski
The typical review makes a Teletubby look like a sabre-toothed tiger. You can economize by reading online rather than squandering $4.95, yes, but all you get is people pusillanimously Favoriting and Liking and Friending. Why is there no Hate button? Why?
Helen DeWitt
A lot of artists have a lot of different ventures, I think it’s typical for a hip hop artist, at this point, to have a bunch of different ventures.
Kanye West
This obsession with celebrity culture is really unhealthy. I don’t want to live my life like that, and I don’t want to be a typical pop star.
Marina and the Diamonds
I started in investment banking at Allen & Company in 1991. It was the go-go days of media mergers, and we were incredibly busy with one deal after another. Unlike typical investment banking groups, even in the midst of merger mania, we didn’t have a formal face-time culture – and I felt empowered by that.
Dara Khosrowshahi
Re: Invent is different from the typical technology-industry conference in that it’s not a sales and marketing event, but about learning and education.
Andy Jassy
I am not a typical wife. We are two friends who live together. We love each other, but I don’t do the usual things that wives normally do for their husbands, like giving medicines on time, or making sure the clothes are ironed or dry-cleaned.
Kirron Kher
Education, for most people, means trying to lead the child to resemble the typical adult of his society . . . but for me and no one else, education means making creators. . . . You have to make inventors, innovators…not conformists
Jean Piaget
The terrible thing is that the crowd that fills the street believes that the world will always be the same and that it is their duty to keep that huge machine running, day and night, forever. This is what comes of a Protestant morality, that I, as a (thank God) typical Spaniard, found unnerving.
Federico Garcia Lorca
The deal machinations many companies put themselves through, while certainly a bonanza for investment bankers, can confound the typical investor.
Whitney Tilson
Songwriting for me is about zooming into the canvas, not songwriting in a typical sense.
I’m not a really big comic book person. I know the typical ones – ‘Spider-Man’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ and ‘Storm’ and that stuff. But don’t quiz me, because I’m not good at things like that.
Christian Serratos
I have a real passion for playing a role that’s a strong female character, that’s just not typical, with a lot of heart, not an easy sell of a movie, not real commercial. It doesn’t have to be a big movie, but I’m just looking for something that I really, truly, 100 percent believe in and am behind.
Missy Peregrym
A typical practice consists of practicing every event for about an hour. A lot of people assume I have private coaching, but I work out with 13 other girls at the gym!
Shawn Johnson
Some may look on my work as being corny or old hat and wonder if my observations on the typical family are passe, what with the single-parent family and mixed family units.
Bil Keane
I tend to like writing characters that are not typical heroes.
N. K. Jemisin
Today, the gap between productivity and compensation for the typical worker is larger than at any time since World War II.
David Rolf
I never took guitar lessons. I took classical piano lessons from the age of six when we lived in Holland. And when we moved to America, it was just the typical thing except I was really good at it; so was my brother.
Eddie Van Halen
There isn’t really a typical day in my life, I kind of wish there was, but it always starts too early, there are always lots of children running around, normally my own and not just random children, and there’ll be the routine of the school run and walking the dog to start the day.
Sara Cox
I don’t like to look typical.
Adam Lambert
I am looking at it from the point of view of a harried user, which I am, and I believe that I am much more like the typical non-technical harried user than I am like the people who smoothly operate everything.
Ted Nelson
Cassoulet requires a few ingredients you won’t find in the typical supermarket.
Claire Saffitz
It just makes me laugh, when you talk to people who are ‘typical’ men, masculine, they watch sports and they can armchair quarterback, but they don’t do anything themselves and they judge your masculinity.
Riley Stearns
I always just want to do non-typical voices for some reason.
Kenan Thompson
The typical person has no trouble believing without knowing. What people need to realize is simply that you do not need to believe to know.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
In the Indian film industry, especially those of us who are in mainstream cinema, we invariably play a typical hero’s role. More often than not, we cater to the public perception. However, there is a latent desire in most actors to do a role where you can go all out and experiment.
Abhishek Bachchan
I’m not your typical quarterback. I don’t like when people say, ‘Quarterbacks aren’t supposed to run,’ or, ‘Quarterbacks aren’t supposed to work out a certain way.’
Colin Kaepernick
A typical medical practice is like an old-fashioned business which keeps all of its records on paper. It can probably track down any individual transaction if it needs to, but it’s basically helpless when it comes to overall measurements of performance. And that’s the big problem.
Mitch Kapor
I’m probably most proud of the fact that we are bootstrapped and that we are able to do not just the typical Silicon Valley startup thing. We are basically throwing away all the typical conventions of other startups.
Alan Schaaf
Over the years, we have been conditioned that certain communities need to be looked upon in a certain typical way. So I think we need to question the logic behind it. ‘Mulk’ is going to question that logic – and where did it start and why did it start and the need to change it immediately.
Taapsee Pannu
A typical day for me involves a lot of meetings.
Sophia Amoruso
Today, if you want to access a typical out-of-print book, you have only one choice – fly to one of a handful of leading libraries in the country and hope to find it in the stacks.
Sergey Brin
I want to break that typical Asian female stereotype. There’s this standard where they’re all calm. I want to break that.
There’s more well-known artists who aren’t making as good songs as people who are just coming out of nowhere. That seems to be more typical in the last few years than ever.
I think a writer is a describer. She describes society and human nature as she sees it. She has to be both typical of that society and alone within it.
Amity Gaige
I’m an African-American man with an Afro who isn’t your typical athlete – who wasn’t as masculine as other guys.
My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military.
Smedley Butler
Like the song “Stereo”, to me that’s like, kind of hip-hop in that slacker way. There’s some slackerisms mixed in with that stuff, but it wasn’t really conscious, I guess. When things would get more typical rock’n’roll that was my fallback to go to those kind of lyrics instead of the alternatives.
Stephen Malkmus
There’s virtually nothing to stop the cold air from off of Hudson Bay from flowing down across the midlands. So you get good contrast: the warm air coming up — the cold air coming down — and where they meet is your typical frontal location.
Joe Schaefer
My grandparents came from a typical Marathi family, where they respect the value of rules and regulations.
Mithila Palkar
‘Independents’ – the industry term for companies that have more capital and know-how than the typical ‘wildcatter’ – can grow either by exploring and finding reserves or by buying a company that already has them.
Tahl Raz
Burgundy was the winiest wine, the central, essential, and typical wine, the soul and greatest common measure of all the kindly wines of the earth.
Charles Edward Montague
…in rebellion against the typical British-type dry flies, I created the Wulff series.
Lee Wulff
I’ve got quite a low voice, so it’s not your typical musical theater voice, but I do love musicals; they’re a very different experience.
Sarah Greene
We’re not a typical Christian band. We’ve got dreadlocks and tattoos.
Sonny Sandoval
When we did ‘Back In The Game’ on the Wu-Tang ‘Iron Flag’ album, I did a verse about gambling. I didn’t want to be ‘back in the game’ or ‘back on the block’ – that’s typical. I made it all metaphorical.
I am a typical Italian; I love the clan. But I don’t think about getting married.
Gianni Versace
Any corporate policy and plan which is typical of the industry is doomed to mediocrity. Where this is not so, it should be possible to demonstrate that all other competitors are at a distinct disadvantage.
Bruce Henderson
Here’s one truth that perhaps your typical investment counselor would disagree with: if you’re comfortably rich and someone else is getting richer faster than you by, for example, investing in risky stocks, so what?! Someone will always be getting richer faster than you. This is not a tragedy.
Charlie Munger
Im a typical Capricorn. Im hardworking, loyal, sometimes stubborn, and I dont believe in astrology.
Jonah Peretti
I’m not a typical public school boy.
Josh Bowman
The typical modern has the look of the hunted.
Richard M. Weaver
I’m a Mormon. I don’t do a lot of the off-the-field activities that athletes are known to do. And I guess I’ve created a world that is unlike the typical world of a professional athlete.
Jeff Kent
It is quite typical for Democrats and other political groups to incite or exploit racial hatred, prejudice, or tension for political gain around the time of elections.
Mollie Hemingway
I love doing movies that are content-driven, but at the same time, I would love to dance around trees and do those things that are typical to Bollywood. I have grown up watching such films and I would love to be a part of them.
Ishita Dutta
Some of those 10, nine-year vets, they know some things that your typical college senior wouldn’t. I’ve come across some guards in the NFL that know how to use their hands better than D-linemen in college. I guess they’ve learned from their enemies.
Mike Daniels
I don’t partake, really, of any of the typical rock-star-lifestyle things you could think of. I try to be responsible when I’m out on the road. I take it pretty seriously, what I’m doing, as something that’s good for the world, and my family, and everyone.
If you think of the typical Herbalife distributor and their level of sophistication, to this day I still don’t understand the marketing plan – true story.
Bill Ackman
I bought a lot of rubbish things that kids buy: skateboards and clothes and typical teenage stuff. And, as soon as I could, I wasted a lot of money on cars – BMW’s mostly – for myself and my family.
Tom Felton
The Romantic poets were the prototype ramblers, and I’ve often found myself following in their footsteps – although perhaps not all of their footsteps since a typical walk for Samuel T. Coleridge might last two days and cover 145km.
Arthur Smith
My mother was aggressive – the typical stage mother.
Dick Van Patten
A protective tariff is a typical conspiracy in restraint of trade.
Thorstein Veblen
The truth is that most people have a better chance to be uncommon by effort than by natural gifts. В Anyone could give that effort in his or her chosen endeavor, but the typical person doesn’t, choosing to do only enough to get by.
Tony Dungy
I always had the sense that nothing was never good enough – striving for perfection. My mother and I had a sort of typical mother-daughter relationship.
Dorothy Hamill
The typical computer network isn’t like a house with windows, doors, and locks. It’s more like a gauze tent encircled by a band of drunk teenagers with lit matches.
Robert David Steele
I’m not a typical couturier, although I really respect them.
Nicola Formichetti
When you get pregnant, you start reading pregnancy books. Everything has been pretty textbook. It’s amazing how they can say, ‘This week, this might happen,’ and it kind of does. I had typical nausea the first trimester, which was no fun. And extreme tiredness.
Anna Silk
I liked the idea that my character was not gonna be the typical dumb guy that I play, typically. I also loved the fact that it was dealing with kind of adult-extended adolescence, which I think is always interesting – a bunch of people that don’t wanna grow up.
Jim Gaffigan
We are a typical working class northern family, big into our football… no one in the family was into acting. But I remember seeing a panto when I was about six and thinking, ‘Yeah… I wouldn’t mind doing that.’
Faye Marsay
I’m a really big homebody. If I had my way, a typical Saturday night would be staying home, ordering in, watching a movie or catching up on some shows.
Christine Taylor
It seems to be typical of life in America … that the second generation has no time to talk to the first.
James A. Baldwin
The deck is still stacked in favor of those already at the top. And there’s something wrong with that. There’s something wrong when CEOs make 300 times more than the typical worker.
Hillary Clinton
As is typical of this God [of Israel], he calls his people into freedom in the most unlikely place.
Mark Galli
I actually never thought that Barack Obama was anything but a typical Democratic party politician, which to me meant that he was probably in bed with Wall Street.
Matt Taibbi
I think when someone knows who they are and is comfortable and confident with that, I think a lot of the typical, aesthetic things sort of fall by the wayside.
Matt Bomer
I’m probably not your typical business person in many ways. I don’t wear a suit. I don’t carry a briefcase. I don’t wear a tie. I’m fairly casual. I haven’t got a big office, and it’s in a very ordinary part of town. I’d much prefer to downplay than impress.
Gerry Harvey
There are as many archetypes as there are typical situations in life. Endless repetition has engraved these experiences into our psychic constitution, not in the forms of images filled with content, but at first only as forms without content, representing merely the possibility of a certain type of perception and action.
Carl Jung
I was a typical American boy. I did a lot of outdoor activities, played a lot outside with my friends, loved to go the beach, liked to hike, boating and fishing, and I flew a lot of model airplanes as well.
Alan G. Poindexter
[The Freedom Writer] is full of disinformation … typical of left-wing journals like yours, you print anything you can find that is derogatory to those with whom you disagree – without checking the facts.
Tim LaHaye
You know later in life I was inspired to sing and that would’ve been Aretha, Chaka Khan, Mariah – the typical divas were the inspiration. I’ve always enjoyed all those singers.
When you think of the typical Teach For America corps member, soldiers and ex-bankers are probably not the people who come to mind. In fact, there is no such thing as a typical corps member. They can’t be neatly pigeonholed or painted with a broad brush.
Wendy Kopp
We travel a lot and don’t get enough time to spend with our family, and so we have to take our pictures, videos, also bother about things like which are the HD quality phones. So I’m very much a part of these typical things.
Yami Gautam
My father, Bob, was a sweet, gentle man who was prone to frustration. I hardly knew him as a child, but that was typical of those days. He got up early, came home late and wanted to be left alone.
David Starkey
Marriage has changed Himmanshoo in some ways. Throughout our 10 years of courtship, he was more liberal. But after marriage, he has become a typical Indian husband.
Amruta Khanvilkar
The typical minimum wage earner is a provider and a breadwinner – most likely a woman – responsible for paying bills, running a household and raising children.
Tom Perez
It’s typical at Real Madrid that we often seem to be going through a revolution.
Sergio Ramos
Your typical Six-year-old is a paradoxical little person, and bipolarity is the name of his game
Louise Bates Ames
My parents were typical Asian parents, and they do, like all parents, want their children to be successful. They really encouraged my brother and I to study math and science, and that’s what we did as kids.
Lisa Su
My training varies so much. There’s no such thing as a typical day.
Chris Weidman
The typical socialist… a prim little man with a white-collar job, usually a secret teetotaler and often with vegetarian leanings.
George Orwell
There is a difference between the typical politician and the statesman. A typical politician is that person who tells people what people want to hear, while the statesman tells people what people need to know.
Г“scar Arias
You need to look at inequality as a typical condition of modern society.
Rem Koolhaas
Typical tech-driven companies or hardware-driven companies always lay out the so-called roadmaps when it comes to making the new hardware. So, in other words, availability of certain technologies dictates when the company is intending to make the new hardware.
Satoru Iwata
I wouldn’t exactly describe ‘Detention’ as a horror movie. I mean, it does have horror elements in it, but it’s got a lot more to it, and it’s not a typical horror movie.
Shanley Caswell
While there is a typical introduction song for the hero, there are songs that represent each phase of the characters’ journey.
Mani Sharma
A diet that relies heavily on meat production results in higher emissions than a typical vegetarian diet. Different individuals will make different choices. However, the debate about climate change should not be dumbed down to a single slogan, such as ‘give up meat to save the planet.’
Nicholas Stern
This is typical Mourinho. Rashford is the biggest talent you have in England. He needs games. He should be playing every week. Instead, he buys Lukaku, he buys Sanchez.
Frank de Boer
By the mid 1920s the typical American town was in full sexual bloom. The change came with erotic fashions, literature and movies, and an unsuspected sexual aid, the automobile.
John Leo
I can’t believe I’ve turned into a typical old man. I can’t believe it. I was young just minutes ago.
Maurice Sendak
‘Fast & Furious’ is Hollywood’s ‘Dabangg.’ It is that big there, so it obviously feels amazing to have played a part in it. The role is small but very interesting. People will see me in full Hollywood accent, and the character is not like typical Indian character.
Ali Fazal
Reverse the typical American meal pattern and instead eat like a king for breakfast, a prince for lunch and a pauper for supper.
Jane Brody
Michael Powell always used to say ‘I’m a typical Englishman’. He was and he wasn’t. He was very cosmopolitan and spent a lot of time in Europe.
Thelma Schoonmaker
I would love to play ‘Wonder Woman’; I have the abilities and the strength because I am definitely not the typical Hollywood actress.
Nadia Bjorlin
I stared up at the Erlking, and with my typical pithy brilliance said, “Uh-oh.
Jim Butcher
Oh, absolutely, it felt more serious than your typical job. One of the things that got us through how difficult the shooting actually was was that we are telling a real story.
John C. Reilly
As soon as I get a typical day, I’ll know I’m in trouble. I like doing different things all the time.
Martin Cooper
To do a poem justice, explain what makes it unique; to get a poem noticed, explain what makes it typical.
Stephen Burt
It’s crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe – the creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor – loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss.
Francis Chan
I will never say never, but I will say never to doing the more typical romantic comedies. You know, unless I’m getting audited and I’m on the street and I desperately need some dough and that’s the only thing that I’m getting.
Christian Bale
I was a typical teen growing up in the 1960s, when everybody was into gurus and meditation.
David Suchet
There was a genocide unfolding against Bosnian Muslims and we, in the United Kingdom, were incredibly angered – a teenager at the time, 15 years old, so my young teenage mind processed that in a way typical to the very passionate and angry and black-and-white way that teenagers often can do.
Maajid Nawaz
My morning rituals are typical. I wake up yearning for a few extra moments of rest. I express gratitude to a higher power for the breath in my body and the blessings in my life. I shower. I dress. I eat breakfast. I exchange laughter and words with my beloveds, embracing each other as we say our daily goodbyes.
Patrisse Cullors
When I was 14, I thought I looked terrible. I wore these typical Slavic shoes with metal bottoms so you could always hear me coming and this really ugly princess skirt and blouse with the top button closed. I had a boy haircut, a baby face covered with pimples, and a really big nose.
Marina Abramovic
The move to tax Internet sales, clothed as a ‘fairness’ issue, is the typical ‘wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing’ ploy so often used by governments unwilling to cut expenditures to match revenues. It matters not whether its proponents have a ‘D’ or an ‘R’ after their name. It is a tax increase in either case.
Bob Barr
It’s the default premise in science: If you observe something in nature only once, you assume that what you’ve seen is typical. That’s because ‘typical’ is just another way of saying ‘most probable.’
Seth Shostak
Thompson is a typical American: wide feet, good jab; he’ll try to have a fight.
Liam Smith
You know, what ‘New Girl’ is doing is they’re bringing in really cool people. These are home-run people who aren’t your typical guest-star-type people.
Jake M. Johnson
Though born in Los Angeles, U.S.A., I am a typical Tamil girl.
(The festival) was awfully impersonal and abstract and there was something really gloomy about it. That’s when I first started thinking about the typical view of reality.
Thomas Cahill
My background is not typical of a lawyer or a DPP. My dad was a toolmaker before he retired, so he worked in a factory all his life.
Keir Starmer
For a woman, the typical danger emanating from the unconscious comes from above, from the “spiritual” sphere personified by the animus, whereas for a man it comes from the chthonic realm of the “world and woman,” i.e., the anima projected on to the world.
Carl Jung
We have to look beyond what we see as the typical, the ‘normal package,’ and just see people as who they are. We all have to learn and get along a little better in society.
Tamlyn Tomita
It’s the typical mid-life crisis kind of thing, where you just stop and wonder, ‘Should I go back to university and get a law degree?’ I kind of looked around me and thought, ‘What kind of idiot am I that I’ve just spent the last 10 years writing novels? Financially, I’m pretty much where I was when I was 28.’
Lynn Coady
There’s no typical person [addicted to heroin]. It just has permeated every segment of society in Ohio.
Mike DeWine
We don’t need more of the same, typical politicians fighting for themselves and for special interests. We need someone to believe in our small-business owners again and someone to champion those folks who play by the rules.
Tim Walz
In the past, I tried to be more of a typical session guitarist. I wasn’t so concerned with impressing anybody.
Brad Paisley
The typical minimum wage earner is a provider and a breadwinner – most likely a woman – responsible for paying bills, running a household and raising children.
Thomas Perez
It doesn’t set off any alarm bells. As is typical with T. Rowe, no transition comes about abruptly; they tend to be planned pretty well.
Bill Vaughan
Washington was a typical American. Napoleon was a typical Frenchman, but Lincoln was a humanitarian as broad as the world. He was bigger than his country – bigger than all the Presidents together.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Hollywood’s thinking is very typical. And it’s just really predictable too. And I think at Hollywood, these box office movies are flopping. I mean, there hasn’t been an original thought coming out of Hollywood since the ’80s.
Andrea Tantaros
Sexist language, racist language, theistic language – all are typical of the policing languages of mastery, and cannot, do not, permit new knowledge or encourage the mutual exchange of ideas.
Toni Morrison
If there was such a thing as a typical English gentleman in rock music, then it was Jon Lord.
Ian Gillan
Machismo requires Latin blood. I’d say I never experienced machismo up close until I worked in a French office; the typical Wall Street gunner has the soul of a coffee filter in comparison.
Rosecrans Baldwin
If today is your typical day in America, 80 of our fellow citizens will die from gunfire. In the last two weeks, more Americans have died from gunfire here at home in the United States than in the entire war in Iraq since it started.
Michael D. Barnes
We tend to think that employment is employment, and we don’t ask the question: is this rewarding employment? Research establishes pretty clearly that typical notions of happiness – that more is better – really don’t correspond to the way people think and feel.
Michael Spence
Most everything I do revolves around tae kwon do. That said, I like to be a typical girl and go shopping. I have three nieces and nephews that I like to hang out with. I’m also finishing my last semester at the University of Houston, where I’m majoring in childhood education.
Diana Lopez
My earlier film ‘Punda’ did not give people a glimpse of what I could do as my role was that of a typical glamour doll that required me to run around trees.
Meghana Raj
Golf is typical capitalist luncay.
George Bernard Shaw
I’m much more comfortable in pants and shirts, running around. There was a typical construction about womanhood when I was growing up that I rejected.
Shirley Geok-lin Lim
Like a typical Gemini I’m changeable, I can be two different types of people. I can be very outgoing, but sometimes very shy.
Denise Van Outen
Growing up, my father was a financial analyst for an oil company. He was just a regular dad. And when I would say, Hey, come see my play, hed say, Sure. Hed see one, Oh, good play – you know, very typical dad reaction.
Eric McCormack
My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.
Smedley Butler
Many feminists in the academy and in the major women’s groups are knocking down open doors. It’s 2016, not 1950. But you wouldn’t know that if you looked through a typical women’s studies textbook or website.
Christina Hoff Sommers
After a pretty amazing year that included more wins than I thought possible, I rang in 2013 by watching the Times Square ball drop on TV… and then heading directly to bed. It might not have been the typical New Year’s Eve for a 21-year-old, but what can I say? It was a training night!
Ashley Wagner
The community in Utah was very religious. I was a typical teenage girl trying to find my sexuality. Unfortunately, girls do use their sexuality to find attention. I also understand why parents want to protect their kids.
Julianne Hough
The typical conditions for the birth of a bull market are here: you have a changed country, you have a deep fall in growth and everybody is perplexed by the rise of stocks.
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala
People ask me if I’m going to open a school. Why not? I think I should. Maybe not a typical school where anyone can come but with young fighters definitely one day. I don’t have the nerves for amateurs.
Mirko Cro Cop
Innovation is the lifeblood of an organization. Knowing how to lead and work with creative people requires knowledge and action that often goes against the typical organizational structure. Protect unusual people from bureaucracy and legalism typical of organizations.
Max De Pree
I don’t have formal training at all, but I did grow up around design. My parents both flipped homes. A typical weekend for us was walking through model home units. I loved walking through interesting floor plans and seeing different design aesthetics.
Jeremiah Brent
The typical imperative from biology is not “Thou shalt… ,” but “If … then … else.
Steven Pinker
Generally my typical books have lots of twists and turns a big surprise ending and then usually another surprise at the end and ideally, as in Garden of Beasts, we get to the very end and we find at the last few pages that there’s yet another surprise.
Jeffery Deaver
The typical Western diet is the number-one cause of premature death and the number-one cause of disability. In other words, a long and healthy life is largely a matter of choice.
Michael Greger
I did not want to be taken for a fool-the typical French reason for performing the worst of deeds without remorse.
Jules Amedee Barbey d’Aurevilly
Why can’t we have a concert with food? Your typical cooking demonstration, there’s just no enthusiasm. There’s no energy behind it. I said, ‘What if we take a cooking demonstration and fortify it with a lot of good music? … Drive it to the next level?’
Guy Fieri
Whoever has character also has his typical experience, which returns over and over again.
Friedrich Nietzsche
My parents read me some typical children’s books: ‘Green Eggs and Ham,’ ‘The Little Engine That Could,’ ‘Peter Rabbit.’ But I quickly developed a preference for nonfiction books about baseball and math, by the likes of Bill James and Martin Gardner.
James Holzhauer
‘Daddy’ is an amazing Bollywood debut for me. I don’t play a typical Bollywood heroine. It’s a performance-oriented role.
Aishwarya Rajesh
Senator McCarthy’s reckless and unfounded attempt to impugn my loyalty is just one more example of his typical tactic of attempting to tie up to Communism anyone who disagrees with him.
Edward R. Murrow
The typical output deal from a studio is 10 to 14 movies a year.
Ted Sarandos
I think I’m probably more typical of the average American who doesn’t have a connection to a military community.
Michelle Obama
I expect a time when, or rather an integrity by which, a man will get his coat as honestly and as perfectly fitting as a tree itsbark. Now our garments are typical of our conformity to the ways of the world, i.e., of the devil, and to some extent react on us and poison us, like that shirt which Hercules put on.
Henry David Thoreau
Vegas is definitely a new challenge, but I wanted to be able to put on a different type of show. You get to do so much more when you don’t have to put your stage in trucks after the show every night – we got to build a venue specifically for my show. It’s going to be more like a party than a typical concert.
Britney Spears
I’m bigger than the typical model, and I’m shorter, too. I really can’t say why it’s all worked for me.
Suki Waterhouse
In any game, you have an enemy coming at yourself that you have to shoot. If you go back to ‘Space Invaders,’ they shoot at you when they come at you, so how are you going to protect yourself? You’re going to shoot, and that is a typical videogame.
Hideo Kojima
I’ve never had coffee. I’ve always hated the smell. It was always tea. I was a pretty typical kid, though. I grew up drinking Lipton. I didn’t know there was other tea to drink.
Billy Corgan
The abortion industry and their workers are under unique pressure and constantly in the spotlight because abortion is so controversial, and people on both sides are considerably passionate. This isn’t a typical nine-to-five job. It’s on a whole other level of intensity.
Abby Johnson
I have been hooked to cinema since childhood. I am like a typical Indian villager who had no other source of entertainment while growing up.
Suhasini Maniratnam
I’ve always had a strange acting life. I’m the daughter of a director, and a very French, typical director who fell in love with every single one of his actresses. And that’s also something that’s kind of normal in the acting business, because everything is based on desire, one way or the other.
Lou Doillon
Typical news accounts and commentaries about school shootings and rampage killings rarely mention gender.
Jackson Katz
For most teenage runners, the right foods means a varied diet, decreasing the amount of fat found in the typical American diet and replacing those calories with carbohydrates. Avoid saturated fats, such as those found in fried foods, and eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Don Kardong
When Bound was released, Boys don’t Cry wasn’t out yet. Therefore it was very taboo to play a lesbian. I loved the part, because girls never get to play the typical guy parts.
Gina Gershon
There wasn’t a single good character in ‘Titanic’ who was English and this is typical.
David Warner
There’s a lot of things, even the landscape that we show in the movie [Everybody Loves Somebody] of Ensenada in Baja is just spectacular. There’s so much more – I wish we could have shown more, but I’m glad we didn’t see the typical, you know, border-sombrero-tequila thing that we normally do.
Karla Souza
Chipotle was going to incorporate all the things I had learned at the Culinary Institute and Stars and really elevate typical fast food.
Steve Ells
That’s typical Gabrielle, … Marc has a very clever plan for this pregnancy. It’s going to turn her world upside down
Eva Longoria
The resemblance of … the alien abduction of ‘experiencers’ to the contracts described by our own volunteers is undeniable. How can anyone doubt, after reading our accounts… that DMT elicits ‘typical’ alien encounters?
Rick Strassman
I think we’ve faced all the typical challenges that young filmmakers go through over the years – time, money, negativity – but it’s a lot easier to manage when you can learn from and laugh about all those mistakes and anxieties with your best pal.
Dave McCary
Doing the right things for the wrong reasons is typical of humanity. Precession – not conscious planning – provides a productive outcome for misguided political and military campaigns.
R. Buckminster Fuller
Normal men retain their childish longing for a woman to mother them. At adolescence a new desire is added. They want a girl to allure them. When you put these two together, you have the typical male yearning that Wonder Woman satisfies.
William Moulton Marston
A saint has to be a misfit. A person who embodies what his culture considers typical or normal cannot be exemplary.
Martin E. Marty
This sounds really craven on some level, but on some level, a lot of what I’m doing is trying to not do a typical TV show.
Matthew Weiner
‘Brand-Dropping’ is the term that the Kluger Agency coined to describe discreetly advertising by product mentioning in song, and we feel we can make this the way of the future without jeopardizing any artist’s creative outlet or typical style.
Adam Kluger
My father is an amazing guy – he’s a total, total patriot… He loves America … and he says what’s on his mind… He’s not like the typical politician who has to pander to everybody.
Eric Trump
It’s very typical that when two people are having lunch, they put a phone on the table between them.
Judy Woodruff
A typical guy who buys organic food doesn’t really buy it in order to be healthy; he buys it to regain a kind of solidarity as the one who really cares about nature. He buys a certain ideological stance.
Slavoj ЕЅiЕѕek
I didn’t take the typical path and go to college after high school. Instead, I saved up money from teaching dance classes and moved to L.A. But my family was so supportive – I never felt pressure from them. It’s crucial to find a support system, even if it’s not your family.
Dianna Agron
I think that the typical Emilia Wickstead women is very effortless, very sophisticated: she’s got alluring style, and she’s always taking on fashion. I always describe her as ‘imaginative with her own taste’.
Emilia Wickstead
I was raised in a truly typical Midwestern home with a lot of repression. My life, and the creation of Playboy, were a response to that repression.
Hugh Hefner
I get music from odd places that I assume are fairly typical at this point. I’ll just go on iTunes, go to EDM and just look at the Top 100, or I’ll go on the Beats app and look on the playlists that are sort of curated.
Neal Brennan
Typical mergers happen when there are two competitors coming together, and they reduce overhead.
Tony Fadell
My dad worked in a very typical first-generation immigrant fashion – 24 hours a day for years.
George Michael
Even when I became the typical shy adolescent, I never minded performing. I felt there was a kind of safety, a protection about being on stage, about losing myself in another character.
Hayley Mills
If a predator tries to get a hold of you, yell, kick, and punch. Do all of the typical self-defense measures you’ve heard of – eye-gouging, knee to the crotch. Anything you can do to cause a scene.
Eve Torres
I was your typical pregnant lady – pickles and watermelon.
Morena Baccarin
I just see me, an ordinary girl. I know my life is not typical, but I have tried to stay really grounded and true to myself. My family really helps me with that.
The thing about the ‘Raw’ after Wrestlemania, the thing is they are the real hardcore, hardcore fans. It’s not your typical WWE audience.
I wanted something that was really ‘us,’ but not typical engagement photos in any way. We’re not a fancy couple. More jeans and T-shirts.
Jedediah Bila
I went to a local high school in Lancaster. Not much I can say about it; it was pretty much your typical public high school back in Pennsylvania.
Jonathan Groff
I’ve never been a waitress, hostess, bartender or any of the typical side jobs you’d expect an actor to have. This is partly because I’ve always been afraid of dropping plates on customer’s heads.
Candace Kita
I have this typical Ukrainian face. Even people who know my music don’t recognize me most of the time, thank God.
Neko Case
But you don’t hire Ang Lee to do a typical children’s movie. But it’s such an interesting combination, whoever thought of getting Ang together with a comic book, that was just great.
Dennis Muren
I believe that for the typical smoker nicotine satisfaction is the dominant desire, as opposed to flavor and other satisfactions.
R. J. Reynolds
It wouldn’t be in the typical fashion of the Go-Go’s that anything isn’t a struggle.
Gina Schock
I try not to be a typical athlete.
Tyronn Lue
My life is anything but typical.
Margaret Cho
I think the typical way is that usually Holocaust survivors are known to be very quiet and full of anxiety, many of them don’t like life, don’t trust people. But my parents were children during the Holocaust. And my father was very optimistic.
Etgar Keret
Our family has made its livelihood from the land, digging trenches for hundreds of miles cross-country. You could say this is a real paradox, to destroy the land, yet love it at the same time. This is a typical story of Westerners, how we build community through change.
Terry Tempest Williams
Unlike typical romantic comedies, Definitely Maybe is not formulaic or predictable and it spans a decade while being set against a political background. Also, the audience doesn’t know who ends up with who until the very end, which makes it a sort of “romantic mystery comedy”.
Isla Fisher
A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues.
Theodore Roosevelt
I was a typical boy growing up, even though I wasn’t particularly outgoing or chatty. I loved running around and playing football. My siblings and I are only a year apart in age, so we played together. Sometimes it was good being so close, sometimes it wasn’t – like when they’d steal my candy and toys.
Verne Troyer
It’s absolutely imperative for the parents and the typical kids to have time by themselves, to go out to dinner or even go on vacation while someone else cares for the autistic child.
Jenny McCarthy
A typical triumph of modern science to find the only part of Randolph that was not malignant and remove it.
Evelyn Waugh
The terrain of Adam’s Mountain provides a palette unique to the region. Rather than typical mountain slope play, the course is broad and open, allowing for special golf experiences on every single hole.
Tom Weiskopf
Voter fraud is a reality in American elections, but it is typical of the candidate to confuse anecdote with data and turn allegation into conspiracy.
Bret Stephens
I’ve never been a guy who was anal about housework. A typical Wellington flat when I was flatting was a warehouse with, basically, sheets hung up for walls.
Taika Waititi
In contemporary society [the typical lady] is an archaism, and can’t hardly understand herself unless she knows her own history.
Emily James Smith Putnam
Eighty percent of the cases used in the typical MBA program are about successful companies. Students graduate with this notion that ‘If I do everything that the people in those cases did, then my organization will grow and be successful, too.’
Clayton M. Christensen
Our sufferings and weaknesses, in so far as they are personal, are of no literary interest whatsoever. They are only interesting in so far as we can see them as typical of the human condition.
W. H. Auden
My earliest influences would definitely be my father, just seeing him play in different bands and going to his shows and going to the rehearsals. You know what I’m saying, it was the typical story of a son looking up to his dad. So the years that my father was around, my father was my biggest influence.
Jon Connor
I long for typical days, but rarely get them any more.
Nora Roberts
If you ask the typical two- or three-year-old or a teenager what a robot is, they will think about a humanoid that does my homework for me or walks the dog. When I go and talk to kids and pull out the Roomba, it’s not this big ‘Wow!’ moment.
Colin Angle
The best horror walks a line that’s completely on a psychological level, not needing the typical tropes of traditional horror filmmaking, then also having to tease out those elements in a way that makes the audience feel like they know what they’re in.
Karyn Kusama
It is a lot more difficult to make a typical Bollywood film than a realistic film.
Although I am a typical loner in my daily life, my awareness of belonging to the invisible community of those who strive for truth, beauty, and justice has prevented me from feelings of isolation.
Albert Einstein
If I do what I really want to do, I’m not going to do a typical commercial Broadway show, so I’m going to write what I want to write.
Mitch Leigh
I’m a typical middle child. I’m the mediator. The one that makes everything OK, puts their own needs aside to make sure everybody’s happy. It’s hard to change your nature, even with years and years of therapy.
Jennifer Jason Leigh
There’s the typical books, Moby Dick and, I guess in my adult life I began to read biographies more than fiction. I started to want to relate to other people’s lives, things that had really happened.
Julius Erving
The typical American citizen is the business man. The typical business man is a bad citizen; he is busy. If he is a ‘big business man’ and very busy, he does not neglect; he is busy with politics, oh, very busy and very businesslike.
Lincoln Steffens
By the time I was done with the car it looked worse than any typical Indian car that has been driven all its life on reservation roads, which they always say are like government promises – full of holes.
Louise Erdrich
This was a very typical time. I was single. All you needed was a cup of tea, a light, and your stereo, you know, and that’s what I had.
Steve Jobs
The authentic Gullah dialect is actually very clipped, and so it would sound almost Jamaican and be very odd to an American audience’s ears. It’s not the typical Southern dialect that we’re used to.
Audra McDonald
It’s typical of Andy Barr and his team, taking things out of context.
Amy McGrath
If someone ever decides to tell my story, it will make for a typical masala movie.
Adnan Sami
If I’m going to do blues, it’s going to be a typical Jimmy Rushing record.
Jimmy Rushing
The deep learning techniques, while relatively easy to learn, are quite foreign to traditional engineering modalities. It takes a different mindset and a relaxation of the presumption of control. The practitioners are like magi, sequestered from the rest of a typical engineering process.
Steve Jurvetson
It was the typical paranoid experience [to hide coke]. As soon as I knew my hiding place, I thought the whole world knew it. I’d write clues to my hiding places in code, then forget the code and spend the rest of the day looking for my coke.
George Carlin
Several states are now looking into the possibility of taxing marijuana as a source of revenue. That is so typical of the government, isn’t it? Trying to squeeze blood from a stoner.
Jay Leno
Actually Pu La was my father’s friend and their friendship was very typical , as friends should be, fame did not come in between.
Ashok Saraf
My first movie was a movie that had a bunch of people dying in it – the typical popcorn movie. That’s where I got my start.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
What I’ve seen from keeping in touch as well as I can is that what I find so typical in Mexican culture is the helpfulness of the people to each other. I think, at this point, that is the highest good and the highest we can hope for – which is to be of help and use to each other wherever we are.
Alice Walker
Well, it was a typical meeting with the President. He was very gracious, very outgoing.
Lew Wasserman
He came in shouting ‘goal of the season’ – typical Jonjo. He’s got that in the locker.
Garry Monk
So, make a real effort to avoid getting sucked into all the expensive lifestyle habits of typical Americans. Because if you do that, then people with the money will dictate what you do with your life.
Richard Stallman
The first book I wrote was The Bride Price which was a romantic book, but my husband burnt the book when he saw it. I was the typical African woman, I’d done this privately, I wanted him to look at it, approve it and he said he wouldn’t read it.
Buchi Emecheta
I watch other wrestlers. I watch movies with Jackie Chan and Jet Li and Tony Jaa. Then there’s breakdancing and Capoeira – just anything I see that looks awesome that I think I could adapt in the ring. Just your typical Kung Fu, breakdancing, Capoeira moves.
John Morrison
Typical of most French guys in our league with a visor on, running around and playing tough and not back anything up.
Sean Avery
It had never occurred to me that my colour – or lack of it – was an issue for some people, but then I moved to Sydney, and apparently it was. People look at me and don’t see what they think is a typical Aboriginal. Thankfully, my mother raised me well in knowing where I come from and who I am, and I’m proud of that.
Shari Sebbens
I came into the Agency with a set of ideas and attitudes that were quite typical of people coming into the Agency at that time. You could call it liberal anti-communism.
Aldrich Ames
A typical neuron makes about ten thousand connections to neighboring neurons. Given the billions of neurons, this means there are as many connections in a single cubic centimeter of brain tissue as there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy.
David Eagleman
I’m interested in taking raw human emotions and then isolating them without any narrative structure. In order to achieve this, I try to break out of the narrative conventions that you’d see in a typical feature film.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
Kolaigaran’ is not a typical hero-villain subject. We explored the other side of human nature, which is grey.
Vijay Antony
The typical nature photograph shows a butterfly on a pretty flower. The conservation photograph shows the same thing, but with a bulldozer coming at it in the background.
Joel Sartore
It’s typical for people living in nonurban areas to drive 100 miles to go to work, to the grocery store or to the doctor.
Cynthia Lummis
Vehicle donation programs have existed forever, but the typical model loses a lot. There had to be a place to store them, people who could only go out so far regionally to pick them up.
Richard Rawlings
I put a lot of weight on feelings and am weirdly in touch with them, which is not typical for an engineer.
Luis von Ahn
What happens when you speak colloquial Hebrew is you switch between registers all the time. So in a typical sentence, three words are biblical, one word is Russian, and one word is Yiddish. This kind of connection between very high language and very low language is very natural, people use it all the time.
Etgar Keret
The beautiful thing about ‘Bhav’ is that it reaches out to a far more number than just the typical set of people who say they like classical music and dance.
You don’t judge a book by a cover. I’m not your typical rap look.
Action Bronson
I think anything you do that’s different, that doesn’t take the typical approach, invites differing opinions.
Sofia Coppola
Going out is the typical thing when you turn 18, but it’s not really much fun when you have a recognisable face.
Maisie Williams
I’m a typical mutt American. I have an Italian last name. Half-Mexican, half-Jewish.
Eric Garcetti
The whole history of Israel, its ritual and its government, is explicable only as it is typical of the spiritual Israel, of the sacrifice on Calvary, of the precious blood which alone can wash away sin.
Abbott Eliot Kittredge
In a typical desperation for quick answers, easily understood, people had turned to primitive worship as the solution. With less than success. Not only had they died as quickly as the rest of the people, but they had died with terror in their hearts, with a mortal dread flowing in their very veins.
Richard Matheson
For what we don’t realize today is just what the typical self of every previous stage failed likewise to comprehend: this is not the highest and greatest mode of consciousness which can be attained – there lie ahead the realms of the superconscious and the pitiful ego, by comparison, is as a speck of nothingness.
Ken Wilber
The Republican Party’s typical position is to preemptively surrender whenever liberals start yelling ‘Oh that’s mean. You can’t use that word’: ‘Oh I did not realize that ‘The New York Times’ made a finding that the term ‘anchor baby’ is offensive. Henceforth I shall not use it.’
Ann Coulter
I certainly have opportunities many can only dream of – but in most ways I’m a typical girl in her 20s trying to forge a career and represent herself in what can sometimes seem rather strange circumstances. One of the most attractive has been the chance to publish ‘Celebrate.’
Pippa Middleton
I knew that collaborating on songwriting would be difficult for a lot of people, because I was known very much, for my independence and the fact that I wrote these quirky songs that were not typical structure, not typical sound – you know, really original stuff.
Liz Phair
A typical twenty-page short story would work quite well as a graphic novel. A single graphic novel of maybe 120 pages would condense down into a short story quite nicely.
Richard K. Morgan
Of course at that point I had no idea that the adventure was only beginning and that the struggle and the rejections were to pile before me, a typical young writer, in an implacable mountain. But I was on my way.
Vera Nazarian
A label’s typical plan would be to put something out that’s safer and get fans, and then push buttons, but my idea is to push buttons first, scare off the people who are gonna be scared off, and then the right people will like you for who you really are, and stay with you.
Kacey Musgraves
The week of the Super Bowl takes on a carnival atmosphere. There are so many media commitments. There are so many NFL commitments, buses being shuttled from here to there. You are practicing at unfamiliar places. You are asked to do things that are outside of the norm of your typical game week.
Howie Long
A typical day for me is I’m writing when I’m not directing.
Adam Rapp
I was the typical 20-, 25-, 28-year-old going around, going, ‘Life is great. Life is fine.’
Prince Harry
You can tell a lot about someone’s personality if you know his star sign -Jesus, born on 25 December, fed the five thousand, walked on water -typical Capricorn.
Harry Hill
I’m a typical Capricorn. I’m hardworking, loyal, sometimes stubborn, and I don’t believe in astrology.
Jonah Peretti
It’s funny because the perception is that the typical ‘X Factor’ contestant is the person who’s just working 9 to 5 and just decides to one day go and audition. So yeah, for me, it was a very different story.
Fleur East
A typical rapist is a recidivist.
Kirsten Gillibrand
Unfortunately, I am not the typical, old-school, ‘Yes dear, you’re right,’ just to get out of a situation. I am more of the type to work it out until you think I’m right or I think you’re right.
Jason Winston George
I would wager that the number of civilians that were killed [in] a typical week under Saddam Hussein was probably more than we killed during the weeks we were at war there.
Bill Maher
I am very picky with my career. I don’t need to do it for the money or the fame. I’m very choosy, which is why I haven’t played the typical role that people expect to see from someone of my stature and size, as the mean jock or the preppy. It’s very easy to see me like that. That’s why I go against it in different roles.
Kellan Lutz
All through college, I was searching for characters that would make me unique and set me apart from the typical ventriloquist with the typical dummy that was the little boy, cheeky hard figure like Charlie McCarthy.
Jeff Dunham
BDS is not a typical act of political correctness, undertaken by radical academics whose usual prey is the youth of America. This is a worldwide movement designed to destroy the one democracy in the Middle East and the hopes of people who have occupied that land for over three thousand years.
Thom Tillis
The Khodorkovsky case is typical of the “oprichnina” – the system of oppression.
Vladimir Sorokin
My brain doesn’t work in a typical linear fashion: my brain is vibrant and fast and bright and on 10,000 all the time.
Amanda Seales
I was not typical. Whatever typical or normal is, I was somehow separated and different.
John C. Hawkes
In the typical economic recovery, a resurgent housing sector helps fuel reemployment and rising incomes.
Ben Bernanke
Life wanted faces that would express what we wanted to tell. Not just the unusual or striking face, but the face that would speak out the message from the printed page. I am always looking for some typical person or face that will tie the picture essay together in a human way.
Margaret Bourke-White
Being a typical teenager isn’t easy. When you have autism, it can be extra difficult. We need more public awareness about these hurdles as well as compassion towards these young people.
Holly Robinson Peete
Sometimes if I really want to get someone’s attention, I’ll start a sentence with something like, “I’m not racist, but…” I say, “I’m not racist, but you look great today.” They say, “That wasn’t racist at all.” I said, “I know. I said I’m not racist. You never listen. Typical Mexican.”
Demetri Martin
To fix Social Security, we should first stop using the Consumer Price Index to adjust benefits for inflation. Using the C.P.I. overstates the impact of inflation and has also led to larger increases in benefits for Social Security recipients than the income gains of typical American workers.
Steven Rattner
I was the one that in a very overconfident immigrant way thought I knew exactly how to raise my kids. My husband was much more typical. He had a lot of anxiety; he didn’t think he knew all the right choices. And, I was the one willing to put in the hours.
Amy Chua
It takes me about a week and a half to read the typical book. I don’t know how many ten-day spans I have left. Eventually the unread books on my shelves will have to be abandoned, or they will join me on the pyre. The book I’m about to purchase may be among them. We all buy books we won’t live to read.
Ken Kalfus
I am constantly swimming on the margin, neither 100% American, French, nor Lebanese. I am none of those. I am the result of those three. Sometimes it’s an asset: no one can put you in a category. That I do not make typical Lebanese, European or American films does not bother me.
Ziad Doueiri
[My grandmother] is a typical white person.
Barack Obama
The straw hat is the typical hat Cubans use. It’s cool and keeps the sun away from your face.
Desi Arnaz
What Jesus said we could do is leave typical behind.
Bob Goff
The typical fund company services 401k plan participants in the same way that Baby Face Nelson serviced banks.
William J. Bernstein
When I started getting so many haters and closed doors, I decided to prove that it could be done. I was a divorced single mother of three at the time and a size 12 – not your typical model artist that labels feel work for the music industry.
Jenni Rivera
The transfiguration of Jesus is one of the typical facts of the resurrection of the body; not only of the glorious change, but of the renewed life of the body and of the general judgment day.
Edward McKendree Bounds
Children in school are not students, they are pupils. It is typical of certain kinds of politicians that they should regard children as adults, the better subsequently, and consequently, to regard adults as children.
Anthony Daniels
I drink a lot. More or less 10 or 12 coffees a day, both typical Italian and espresso.
Domenico Dolce
I traveled when I was super young, so my mindset was never like a typical 8-year-old.
Gervonta Davis
I am the typical British aspiring working class. To be called ‘elite’ by people who have inherited wealth and run hedge funds or worked in the City of London, I don’t criticise them for it, but the idea is frankly laughable. Just ridiculous.
Gavin Esler
Several things about Reagan are unusual in a public man. He was not a typical politician at all, but a private man in public life.
Lyn Nofziger
An art of expression should begin with childhood, and the lucid use of one’s mother tongue should be typical of that art.
The sense of reality should be strengthened from the beginning, yet by no means at the cost of those lofty illusions we call patriotism, veneration, love.
Louis Sullivan
Everybody was in tears. You turned on the radio or the television, and it was nothing but Gainsbourg. With typical British music journalist disdain, I just figured it was a testament to how poor French pop was if there was this much fuss about a guy who had one hit record, ‘Je T’Aime (Moi Non Plus)’.
Sylvie Simmons
I live in a house that’s incredibly old, and it’s typical that part of it is slightly in the ground. It’s very earthed. It’s almost like living in a hobbit house.
Brian Froud
When I made ‘Satyamev Jayate,’ which is a typical Hindi action masala film, people told me it won’t work because only real cinema worked. But it was a hit.
Bhushan Kumar
The street I lived on for the first handful of years of my life was lined with modest, lower-middle-class houses with small front yards and cracked driveways – your typical North Jersey neighborhood, with all the odd hidden darkness that that implies.
Chris Gethard
Encourage aspiring writers to continue writing when things are going against them, when it feels hard. Explain the typical obstacles that occur, and encourage and reassure them to continue, never to give up.
Patrick Modiano
There are proxies, proxy servers on the internet, and this is very typical for hackers to use. They create what are called proxy chains where they gain access to a number of different systems around the world, sometimes by hacking these, and they use them as sort of relay boxes.
Edward Snowden
My firm has 25,000 high-net-worth clients. A typical account would be that of a couple aged 65 and 60 who need their money to last the rest of their lives, 25 to 35 years.
Kenneth Fisher
In 1900, the typical American was a boy, not yet a teenager, named John. He lived with his parents and his sisters, Mary and Helen, on a farm in New York or Pennsylvania.
Bill Dedman
I don’t want there to be a typical episode of ‘The Walking Dead.’ I want to try to give people different things every week because that’s what I dig.
Scott M. Gimple
I was very close to my grandmother, Agnes Parry. She was a typical matriarchal leader of the family and the community. People looked up to her and would always go to her for advice and help.
Michael Ball
I went to public school my whole life. It was a performing arts school, so I can’t say if it was a typical experience or not, because it’s all I know.
Eden Sher
So many people want to have this typical look and this typical everything and it’s all the same everywhere.
Bria Vinaite
My typical Saturday night is a great solo dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. I like to talk to the restaurant staff while I eat, then come home, finish up some work until midnight, and then play the keyboard until I’m ready to sleep.
Kendrick Sampson
When artists who are not associated with the typical infrastructure get recognition, that becomes a cultural movement.
Ryan Lewis
I realized that all my life, my values were based upon typical middle-class American values: hard work, doing good, living well, owning things, following the rules & being the best I can be… but God clearly says, “those are not MY values. I value justice, mercy & humility.
John Green
I think all my albums have concentrated on songs, I’ve never taken the typical Van Halen route to try and become a guitar hero.
Gary Moore
Growing up, my father was a financial analyst for an oil company. He was just a regular dad. And when I would say, ‘Hey, come see my play,’ he’d say, ‘Sure.’ He’d see one, ‘Oh, good play’ – you know, very typical dad reaction.
Eric McCormack
I’ve been involved in the Conservative party for two decades. I’ve fought for the party. I have an unusual background – I’m not your typical Tory recruit. I’ve spent a long time evangelising about why people should look at the Conservative party seriously.
Sam Gyimah
This is a typical liberal trick, by the way: Stack the deck so the whole thing fails leaving only one option, the government to go in to save the day.
Rush Limbaugh
Though the concept of the show revolves around a love layer, ‘Ek Duje Ke Vaaste’ has a very unique storyline. It is not a typical love story, and I am glad to be a part of this show.
Nikita Dutta
I’m not too fond of the typical Australian activities or culture. I’m not into surfing – that’s what I’m trying to say.
Jens Lekman
In typical sailing races a long time ago, you’d come in and go out, and the first thing you’d do is probably have a cold beer. The first thing we do now is have a protein shake and our recovery drink.
James Spithill
A typical native New Yorker, I’m prone to wearing the city’s unofficial sartorial color: black.
Amanda Hearst
Working with David Cronenberg or Darren Aronofsky or even Steven Soderbergh isn’t really like a typical Hollywood movie. These are true artists, and have a certain amount of freedom when they work, and they’re more like independent filmmakers making their way through big studios.
Vincent Cassel
When I was in middle school and even high school, I wasn’t comfortable with my body. I look back, and it makes me sad, but I’ve grown into my body and really embrace it. I don’t have the typical girl body; I’m kind of built like a boy.
Kelley O’Hara
The Caprese salad perfectly represents the colors of the Italian flag. While I am not so sure that the colors of the flag stem from the cuisine, there is no denying that those colors do evoke a typical Italian plate.
Lidia Bastianich
It’s typical for video customers to often use licensed music – whether a soundtrack, background music, or sound effects – to complement their video projects.
Jon Oringer
I have played characters where I haven’t been absorbed – you know, what I call a typical film leading man role where you just have to look gorgeous and be attractive and charming. It bores me. I like a bit of dirt, a bit of sand in the oyster.
Jeremy Irons
Our typical Western diet is full of inflammatory fats – saturated fats, trans fats, too many omega-6, inflammatory, processed vegetable oils like soy and corn oils. These increase IGF-1 and stimulate pimple follicles.
Mark E. Hyman
I’ve had a somewhat typical experience in that many of the contemporary writers I was exposed to early on were white and often male.
Laura van den Berg
Most writers on the subject seem to agree that the typical working mathematician is a Platonist on weekdays and a formalist on Sundays.
Philip J. Davis
I was not very well-behaved. I remember I was a discipline problem. I was a typical American male at twenty-years-old, and I was causing trouble whenever I could.
Peter DeLuise
The typical Westerner wishes to be the cause of as many changes as possible in his environment; the typical Chinaman wishes to enjoy as much and as delicately as possible.
Bertrand Russell
I like stylish men although I’m someone who sees a man who’s not dressed right and think what I could do with him to make him cute. I’m a typical Jewish woman like that.
Amy Winehouse
I like that I’m not typical. I like that I’m called ‘no-genre hip-hop.’
I don’t really search for typical or more traditional validation because of the role that I’ve had and understanding what that kind of means in the scope of things.
Spencer Dinwiddie
Getting to prove yourself in a room that’s not your typical demo is an experience every comic should try. It makes you better.
Iliza Shlesinger
My music is very innovative, in a class by itself. Nobody else is saying anything of value. What I’m trying to do is get people to think, to alter their consciousness. It’s not your typical platinum formula for success.
Wendy O. Williams
The problem with a lot of marketing advice is that the examples they use are not exactly typical. It’s hard for businesses, particularly smaller businesses, to relate to the bold innovations of companies like Apple or Tesla.
Ryan Holiday
I had an amazing experience working with great people. I had a great family, a typical family with drama in certain areas, and that’s pretty much everywhere in everyone’s life.
Tina Yothers
I have a problem with Porsches. They’re wonderful cars, but I know I could never live with one. Somehow, the typical Porsche people-and I wish them no ill-are not, I feel, my kind of people. I don’t go around saying that Porsches are a pile of dung, but I do know that psychologically I couldn’t handle owning one.
Rowan Atkinson
I don’t really have a favorite bass player. I listen to a lot of bluegrass. But then again, I’m not a typical bluegrass bass player. I was really into the Grateful Dead, and I still am – I don’t listen to them too much, but for me they are a big influence.
Mike Gordon
The Typical American? He is sent to school Little or much, where he imbibes the rule Of safety first and comfort; in his youth He joins the church and ends the quest of truth.
Edgar Lee Masters
I think it is typical for many men to have problems when their wives make more money then they do, or when their wives are higher on the corporate ladder than they find themselves. I think that often is an issue.
Meryl Streep
In Italy, for the same price as a typical British hamburger meal including sweet, a builder’s labourer could eat like a king – rather better in fact, because pasta dishes gain from being kept simple.
Clive James
It wasn’t until I moved to New York that I started actually leaving the house and doing things. You know, I was a typical theater nerd.
Randy Rainbow
Make people’s portraits in familiar and typical attitudes.
Edgar Degas
Its typical of Mexico, of the whole human race perhaps В— violence in favour of an ideal and then the ideal lost but the violence just going on.
Graham Greene
I can’t wait to get on stage, because there you don’t worry about whether you’ll ever get married because your life is insane, or whether you’ll ever have another boyfriend again, you don’t worry about the typical boundaries of how your life has to be.
Florence Welch
There are two kinds of typical days. There’s the typical day when I’m writing a novel, and there’s the typical day when I’m not.
Paul Auster
For older actresses, the story is still the same. They are either subservient wives taking care of their husbands – like that typical age-old character of a woman, who serves her husband a hot cup of tea as soon as he comes home; or they are mothers dependent on their sons.
Supriya Pathak
Strange how much simple wisdom there is to be found in the deformed head and unprepossessing carcase of your typical London cabbie.
Auberon Waugh
Is it not typical that we have a Tory Government that wants, just like its pals in the Labour Party, constantly to talk down Scotland’s prospects?
Nicola Sturgeon
I have acute myeloid leukemia, an aggressive type of cancer. The typical prognosis is 3-6 months to live, but I would like to stress that is for a patient who is not receiving treatment.
Craig Sager
Ronald Reagan is not a typical politician because he doesn’t know how to lie, cheat, and steal. He’s always had an agent for that.
Bob Hope
I think you will find me to be a typical middle-class American.
Gina Haspel
I’m dying to do a masala Bollywood film with typical song and dance. But having said that, my character in the film should have her own point of view. I won’t play a role who has no brains.
Sayani Gupta
I guess in life I find people who, at first glance, appear to be very typical or average, whatever that means, and then turn out to have hidden qualities.
Curtis Sittenfeld
I was the typical little sister who wanted to be just like her older brother. When I was growing up, my brother wrote phenomenal stories, so I wanted to write them, too.
Lisa Graff
Every age probably regards itself as unique in its sexual sophistication, and if we take Ovid as a typical spokesman we should have to conclude that the keynote of his age was elegance. . . . Ovid could not possibly have taken himself, nor be taken for, an Ancient.
Rolfe Humphries
In a typical whistleblower scenario where the inspector general determines a complaint to be credible and urgent, there would be no colorable legal basis for the complaint to not reach Congress.
Asha Rangappa
In Puerto Rico, we have a lot of traditions. We eat a very typical thing that’s called ‘pasteles’ – it’s almost like a tamale made of bananas, and we make it all together. Like, all the women of the family unite, and it’s a very big deal, a very big thing.
Joyce Giraud
It’s typical of Italian culture that we only start to feel emotional about something when we have the possibility to see it in front of us. By February, Italy will have Olympic fever.
Alberto Tomba
A typical biography relying upon individuals’ notorious memories and the anecdotes they’ve invented contains a high degree of fiction, yet is considered ‘nonfiction.’
Joyce Carol Oates
I had a nervous breakdown at 17 when my first love left me, and he was a typical bad boy, albeit a charismatic one, with a string of broken hearts trailing behind him.
Caroline Leavitt
The sources and research I use for my inspiration aren’t your typical sci-fi subjects, but it’s really driven by obsession and personal anxiety more than trying to take up the sword and do what’s right.
Paolo Bacigalupi
The typical old-fashioned diet (in the nineteenth century) was so bad it almost assembled modern dieting.
P. J. O’Rourke
I’m a typical California boy.
Gary Lockwood
At first glance, the rhythm may be confused with gaiety, but when you look more closely at the mechanism of social life and the painful slavery of both men and machines, you see that it is nothing but a kind of typical, empty anguish that makes even crime and gangs forgivable means of escape.
Federico Garcia Lorca
I’ve always wanted to be a poet at the beginning. I would look at my grandparents’ books and my parents’ books. And in my family, a typical aspirational Jewish family, being a writer was very much exalted, and it seemed impossible to me, that I could ever do something like that.
Mark Leyner
I’m obsessively opposed to the typical.
Lady Gaga
Narcolepsy is a disorder that affects many different areas of life. So in typical patients with narcolepsy, they have something called “excessive daytime sleepiness.” So, they’re very sleepy during the day. Yet, at night, they’re still sleepy, but their sleep is very broken.
Shelby Harris
I’ve never really identified with the way a typical alpha male views women. It’s always an awkward forum for me to hang out with another guy and talk about girls, because I can’t really find a way to fit in.
Jack Antonoff
I realise that there is a certain expectation from a ‘typical heroine’ in Bollywood. She is expected to be beautiful and have a toned body. And to achieve that, I have literally starved myself.
Shefali Shah
The difference between the American version of ‘Live Aid’ and the British one – in England, if you wanted a cup of tea, you made it yourself. If you wanted a sandwich, you bought it. In typical American style, at the American concert, there were laminated tour passes and champagne and caviar.
Phil Collins
[The] idealization of marriage is typical of those who are excluded from it: priests, gays, adolescents. It shows an extraordinary willful blindness.
Michael Warner
On a serious note, I just enjoy exploring the unconventional. I like Alfred Hitchcock; I actually grew up watching his films. A thriller gives you much more scope of exhibiting creativity in terms of playing with the camera and sound, as against a typical love story.
Sriram Raghavan
I’m a typical Irishman in that I only get home for weddings and funerals.
Walter O’Brien
The mission of NASA’s Kepler telescope is to lift the scales from our eyes and reveal to us just how typical our home world is. Kepler operates by measuring the dimming of stars as planets pass (‘transit’) in front of them. It has found thousands of previously unknown worlds.
Seth Shostak
A typical Ponzi scheme involves taking money from investors, then paying them off with money taken from new investors, rather than paying them from actual earnings.
Amy Goodman
My mom is not typical in any way.
Adam F. Goldberg
I grew up in an area that was the typical city that was a racially divided and economically segregated place. And it had a big influence on me.
Ed Kowalczyk
I’m more into the old-school country myself, like Dolly Parton, and I guess it wouldn’t be typical, but I really love Linda Ronstadt.
Sara Rue
In a typical history book, black Americans are mentioned in the context of slavery or civil rights. There’s so much more to the story.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
A diet that relies heavily on meat production results in higher emissions than a typical vegetarian diet. Different individuals will make different choices. However, the debate about climate change should not be dumbed down to a single slogan, such as ‘give up meat to save the planet.
Nicholas Stern
Typical! I break my neck trying to get here, and I find you peacefully tidying up!
Diana Wynne Jones
Dez Bryant isn’t Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees or Russell Wilson. Dez Bryant is a typical, me-first NFL receiver diva, cut from the same cloth as Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson, Randy Moss and Keyshawn Johnson, sprinkled with a heavy dash of Pacman Jones.
Jason Whitlock
Though Autism can be frightening and terribly demanding, it also comes with its vast share of superpowers that are unknown to the typical human.
Andrea Suarez Paz
I am a typical Indian woman, who loves to buy vegetables, cook food and take care of the house.
Bharti Singh
I went to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, which was great but very different from a typical university. They sat us down in the first week and said: if you want to party, you’ve come to the wrong place. There was no lie-ins or skipping lectures.
Kimberley Nixon
My accent is not very refined as it has the typical U.P. touch. So I am trying to overcome that.
Amrapali Gupta
I’m a typical college girl; I love to shop and gossip with my roommates about boys and whatnot.
Alicia Sacramone
I really don’t like getting dressed up. It’s a lot more comfortable to be in some type of T-shirt or dry-fit shirt and shorts. That’s pretty much my typical attire.
Brian Shaw
For a long time, I thought, ‘I’m not a TV presenter,’ but now I realise there’s no typical route into this business.
Rachel Riley
A lot of things sound neutral, but they’re not. A typical example would involve police violence. It’s usually forbidden to call police “murderers,” even if they’re convicted of murder. People will say that it sounds hysterical and unobjective.
Molly Crabapple
My friends tell me I’m the most boring celebrity they know! A typical night for me is at home in California or watching movies in my pyjamas.
Amber Riley
I’m an extraordinarily anxious person. I’m a typical actor: narcissistic and paranoid and all them things.
Joe Gilgun
I see the progress typical in some of my poems as starting with something simple and moving into something more demanding. This is certainly the pattern of weird poetry.
Billy Collins
The elimination of individual capitalists and the replacement of private capitalism by state capitalism in Russia has not in the least altered the typical helpless and authoritarian character structure of the masses of people.
Wilhelm Reich
It was exciting to play a gay person in high school who’s really proud of himself and isn’t dealing with the sort of typical story line – the coming-out story – but is already out and sort of an advocate in his own way.
Tommy Dorfman
Miles’ sessions were not typical of anybody else’s sessions. They were totally unique.
Herbie Hancock
Snohetta promotes a more democratic workplace atmosphere than most other architectural offices. This may merely reflect prevalent employment practices in Scandinavia, but Snohetta places a stronger emphasis on group participation in the design process than typical high-style firms.
Martin Filler
A typical day for me is I get up at 6:00, the coffeemaker goes on automatically and the computer gets turned on. I pour a cup of coffee, listen to Garrison Keillor’s The Writer’s Almanac, and then I write.
Kate DiCamillo
You know, what ‘New Girl’ is doing is they’re bringing in really cool people. These are home-run people who aren’t your typical guest-star-type people.
Jake Johnson
Neapolitans are extremely empathetic, whereas the typical northern attitude is more about not showing or sharing your feelings.
Toni Servillo
Beauty is a complex theme, for sure. We all have a different concept and opinion regarding it, but we all like to look at things that are aesthetically pleasing. I had the typical high school experience, where you question what is beauty, and you’re comparing yourself to others, it was just part of growing up.
Elle Fanning
A typical day in the Senate requires several trips to the Senate floor and back, although the journey is usually underground so that on some days, once I arrive at work, I never see the sun.
Jim Webb
It’s a typical story: you think of something, it stays in the back of your head for a while, and then you finally do it.
Julie Delpy
I’m not your typical preppy put-together girl that wears high heels or whatever. I love unique pieces.
Brandi Cyrus
If a man has character, he has also his typical experience, which always recurs.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Negative feelings are typical of learning, and you shouldn’t feel like you’re stupid when you’re frustrated doing something. You might say to yourself, ‘I can’t do this,’ but you should say, ‘That’s great.’ That means you really have the potential to learn something there.
Angela Duckworth
I’m not ashamed that I need glasses for distance. I did not feel like I needed to have all of that hair, which was typical Star Jones, or the extra lashes or the heavy makeup.
Star Jones
Typical horror movies of the 1930s were often given a period setting in what looked like a kind of stylized 19th century… the sense of ‘elsewhen’, of distance, lent to many of these movies by their settings. They exist, as it were, in a 19th century of the mind.
Andrew Tudor
I hope that in some way that I can be some sort of beacon of hope, especially because I am not the typical Hollywood beauty.
Octavia Spencer
Actually, I am a typical middle-class girl.
Padmapriya Janakiraman
The E-S theory does not stereotype. Rather, it seeks to explain why individuals are typical or atypical for their sex.
Simon Baron-Cohen
I’m from a typical middle-class family in Delhi, with one of the most down-to-earth childhoods.
Priyanshu Chatterjee
We’re not playing your typical guitar tuning, so there is no normal chords for us to get our footing with. We’re pretty much making it up as we go as far as the sounds we’re creating. Oftentimes, the song will be inspired by just a certain kind of block of sound that somebody creates.
Lee Ranaldo
My early childhood memories center around this typical American country store and life in a small American town, including 4th of July celebrations marked by fireworks and patriotic music played from a pavilion bandstand.
Frederick Reines
History shows a typical progression of information technologies: from somebody’s hobby to somebody’s industry; from jury-rigged contraption to slick production marvel; from a freely accessible channel to one strictly controlled by a single corporation or cartel-from open to closed system.
Tim Wu
They’re a typical Hollywood audience. All the kids are on drugs and all the adults are on roller skates.
Eric Idle
When you objectively observe the most spiritual area to which modern people devote themselves, the religions, ask yourself if the basis of modern culture, particularly in religion, is not human self-interest. It is typical of modern sermons that the preacher criticizes people for their selfishness.
Rudolf Steiner
It is good for a student to be poor. Getting and spending, the typical American college student lays waste his powers. Work and contemplation don’t mix, and university days ought to be days of contemplation.
Russell Kirk
It is not as if farming brought a great improvement in living standards either. A typical hunter-gatherer enjoyed a more varied diet and consumed more protein and calories than settled people, and took in five times as much viatmin C as the average person today.
Bill Bryson
There were definitely auditions and even bookings and jobs where I played your typical Asian model minority: an IT tech guy or something of that nature. It’s tough sometimes, especially when you’re starting out, because they make these roles sound as if they won’t be a typical nerd.
Manny Jacinto
Food from Quebec is not known to be amazing. Actually, even though you can eat really, really well in Montreal, it’s crazy. It’s one of the best cities I eat in, but typical Quebec food is like food from people that work in the woods. It’s potatoes, meat and sauce.
Charlotte Le Bon
My dad is this typical orthodox, narrow-minded Punjabi man in front of whom you can’t even utter the word called ‘boyfriend.’
Parineeti Chopra
I’m regarded outside New York University as a looney tunes leftie, self-hating Jewish communist; inside the university, I’m regarded as a typical, old-fashioned, white male liberal elitist. I like that. I’m on the edge of both; it makes me feel comfortable.
Tony Judt
In many ways, I was a typical young guy out of college. I was at Oxford, where every night there’d be a late showing of some great film.
Geoff Dyer
Compared to the typical Zim/Chomsky-spouting grad school clown, a trucker with a screaming eagle hat is a paragon of political nuance.
David Burge
There is no such thing as a typical season, not for the Cardinals, not for San Diego, not for Minnesota.
Dennis Green
First dates are so awkward and annoying. I think a casual and fun first date with friends is much more fun than a one-on-one typical first date.
Kourtney Kardashian
I feel like I have a very typical west African physique, and that is part of my blackness!
Wunmi Mosaku
Are anybody’s parents typical?
Madeleine L’Engle
I want to urge filmmakers in Bengal to choose a subject and mount the film in a way that there’s a Bengali connect. They must not fall into the typical remake pattern.
Prosenjit Chatterjee
The typical response from people when I tell them Im diabetic is, Oh, Im sorry to hear that. You know, Im not. Im a better athlete because of diabetes rather than despite it. Im more aware of my training, my fitness and more aware of nutrition. Im more proactive about my health.
Charlie Kimball
In stark contrast with the views of the Greek philosophers and with those of the rest of western intellectuals to the present day, Chinese Taoist thought always defended individual liberty and laissez-faire while attacking the systematic and coercive use of violence typical of government.
Jesus Huerta de Soto
In a dream it’s typical not to be rational.
John Forbes Nash
Down South, I have predominantly acted in typical candy-floss films, where I have played cheerful college-girl roles with songs and romantic scenes.
Pranitha Subhash
He’s not your typical prince, more like a square peg in a round hole, kind of like me. He’s the sort of guy who wouldn’t mind reading side by side on a date.
Jodi Picoult
Typical of the fundamental scientific problems whose solution should lead to important industrial consequences are, for example, the release of atomic energy, which experiment has shown to exist in quantities millions of times greater than is liberated by combustion.
Arthur Compton
A typical complaint of married women with children is that their job stress tired them out so that they have little quality emotion and energy left for their children, much less their husbands.
Laura Schlessinger
The Mall Of America, outside Minneapolis, is just a mall. Yeah, it’s big. So, like, instead of your typical 12 Starbucks, there are 30.
Adam Schlesinger
Women are problem solvers, and often we don’t get much credit for that because the typical image of a leader is someone who’s loud, obnoxious, chest-pounding. That’s not my vision of what true leadership is; true leaders are the ones who work with great commitment to get something done.
Mazie Hirono
It is perhaps typical of very creative minds that they hit very large nails not quite on the head.
Marshall McLuhan
Observe yourself as you go through a typical day. Stuff happens to you. As it does, you immediately judge it and label it. Dozens of times. Hundreds of times. So often that you no longer recognize that you’re doing it. It is a deep-seated habit.
Srikumar Rao
New York is the meeting place of the peoples, the only city where you can hardly find a typical American.
Djuna Barnes
I’ve mis-signed many a book Rollins or Clemens. My readers quickly become aware. Booksellers will often promote me under both names, and I do plug both at signings. Generally, the fantasy reader has no problem going into the suspense genre. It’s harder for the typical suspense reader to go the other direction.
James Rollins
