Beauty Bonus

The pattern of a newspaperman's life is like the plot of 'Black Beauty.'

- Aaron Koblin

Kid Eventually

As a kid, I was always into art at the same time as computers, and eventually I realised I was making more interesting stuff with my keyboard than with my hands. I really enjoyed modifying computer games more than playing them, so that got me into programming.

Through Angles

I always check my harness before I do a stunt; I test-drive the cars I have to race or explode; I'm present at all pyrotechnical rehearsals; and I walk through everything step-by-step. No man should put their life in someone else's hands unless they have covered their own safety from all angles.

- Akshay Kumar

In Ferguson, there are witnesses who say Brown had his hands up when he was shot. That should be enough probable cause to go to trial to then determine if Officer Wilson is guilty or not.

Becoming Gotten

I'd gotten the message in my home, starting with my grandfather, that real work, the kind that makes you sweat and gets your hands dirty, is a respectable, necessary thing.

- Ali Liebegott

Breathing Became

From the first I became convinced that what I must look for was lead dust and lead fumes, that men were poisoned by breathing poisoned air, not by handling their food with unwashed hands.

Very Before

Smaller Half

I'm probably going to go more the feature film route for a while, just so I have more time on my hands. If I did go back to television, I'd do a comedy, a half hour. Or I'd go back on an hour long if it was ensemble, if I had a smaller role, if I could work less days.

- Ally Walker

Book Kind

Writing is so fun precisely because if you take out the right adjective, the readers can decide what kind of book is in their hands. Suspension of disbelief should not be mandatory in contemporary writing.

Been Abuse

I had lived with abuse for many years, but the worst abuse has been at my own hands and the appalling situations I have tolerated.

- Amanda de Cadenet

Muse I Think

People think of me as a stereotype: muse, privileged, decorative. Classically, the muses were the inspiration. They'd come and go - they wouldn't actually make things, get their hands dirty. I don't think I'm a muse, although I think I can help pull a trigger. I really like getting my hands dirty.

- Amanda Harlech

Models Sleazy

Models are just mannequins seeking validation at the hands of sleazy fashion people.

- Amy Adams

Soup Country

Golf isn't just about hitting a lot of drivers. I grew up playing on my front lawn, chipping and putting into soup cans, out of the ivy and over rose bushes and hedges - the little Alcott Golf and Country Club. I just loved having a wedge in my hands.

Congress Will

If Congress continues to sit on its hands, and the drug companies continue to stash cash in their stockings, Americans will be forever bound in the Jacob Marley-like chains of high prices.

My Life Became

At the age of 19, the day after I graduated high school, I moved to a place where it snowed, and I became a massage therapist.

Dancers know how to move their arms and their hands. But I don't know the first thing about how to move my arms and hands gracefully.

Small TV

I like to just make things... If I have the TV on, I'm not just going to sit there. I want to do something with my hands; I've always got a project. Or I get a small group of people over, and I say, 'Let's make these things today.'

- Amy Sedaris

Very Something

I normally speak by moving my hands, and I'm very expressive with my face - something Cuban, I guess.

Love Beauty

Old hands soil, it seems, whatever they caress, but they too have their beauty when they are joined in prayer. Young hands were made for caresses and the sheathing of love. It is a pity to make them join too soon.

Doing Nick

I spar with Nick and Nate Diaz... those boys know what they're doing; they can throw their hands.

- Andre Ward

The great constitutional corrective in the hands of the people against usurpation of power, or corruption by their agents is the right of suffrage; and this when used with calmness and deliberation will prove strong enough.

- Andrew Jackson

Dearest Privileges

Unless you become more watchful in your states and check the spirit of monopoly and thirst for exclusive privileges you will in the end find that... the control over your dearest interests has passed into the hands of these corporations.

- Andrew Jackson

I Think TV

Besides Spiderman and Batman, 'The Flash' has, hands down, the best villains. You could do a TV show about The Rogues, and there's enough depth and interest and oddly honor amongst those characters that I think people will watch that show.

- Andrew Kreisberg

Couple Very

There certainly is a good 'Tex Mex' restaurant very close to our office. My office is around 100 yards from it. I call it Tex Mex because every couple of years it's changed hands and changed name, I'm not exactly sure why!

- Andrew Oliver

Fact Interest Rates

The greatest economic power might in fact remain in the hands of the Federal Reserve. Economists credit the Fed's policy of keeping interest rates at historic lows with helping to pump up the economy and bring unemployment down.

- Andrew Ross Sorkin

Kind Ring

As you know, Microsoft eventually kind of grabbed the gold ring out of Apple's hands, I guess.

- Andy Hertzfeld

Like Before

Well, immediately we announced yesterday or the day before we're building, with my foundation, a youth tennis and learning center in Austin. I'd like to be hands on with that and not see it periodically.

Head Using

Don't rule out working with your hands. It does not preclude using your head.

Rather Prefer

I'm better for it and I prefer to keep things simple and see what sounds I can get out of my head and hands rather than relying on a sound that someone else created.

- Andy Summers

I Think Show

Usually with this genre the first thing that happens is a good fight sequence to show that you're in good hands. So we broke that rule. I think a lot of that comes from the western audience.

- Ang Lee

Impatient Like

I get impatient with people working on a film that have their head in their hands like it's the most complicated thing in the world.

- Angelina Jolie

Myself Keep

For myself, I keep writing. I've got to do something. I can't sit on my hands and do nothing.

- Angus Young

Shady Even

In our hands, even the straightest lyric sounded shady.

- Angus Young

Feet Keeping

I advise keeping four feet on the floor and all hands on deck.

- Ann Landers

Own Fought

The people who founded America, who fought for its freedom, did not look to anyone else to get them out of their troubles. They took matters into their own hands and answered only to God and their peers. In today's world, sacrifice and hardship are not in the everyday language, and instant gratification is foremost.

- Ann Rinaldi

MGM Were

From the time you were signed at MGM you just felt you were in God's hands.

- Ann Rutherford

New Frontier

The American idea is as promising, imaginative, and full of the unexpected as the land itself. The land represents freedom - the frontier, the ability to make a new future with your own bare hands.

- Anna Deavere Smith

Dirt Buy

Don't be afraid to get your hands in the dirt. Buy gloves if you are squeamish about it.

Having Actual

I'm struck these days by how often people come up to me and ask to take a photograph instead of shaking hands, meeting one's eyes, and having an actual conversation.

- Anna Wintour

Get Almost

I'm fascinated by almost any mythology that I can get my hands on.

- Anne Rice

Artist No Time

Artists have different responsibilities in different eras. But at this point, I really feel like it's all hands on deck. An artist that's fiddle-faddling in opaque, gossamer gestures - I mean it's fine to do that, totally fine, but there's no time left. We don't have the luxury of time anymore.

- Anohni

Motivation Became

England used to be known for making beautiful things. Then we became the rag trade, known for our street fashions, which were picked up around the world. I want us to be recognized for quality. We have the hands to make the clothes. What we need is the motivation.

- Anouska Hempel


If we are to celebrate the giants in Australian public life, then Robert Garran must be among them. A lawyer and passionate advocate of Federation, Garran was one of several hands that drafted our constitution.

- Anthony Albanese
