Experience People Advice

To me idealized characters are so boring to play, especially having grown up in the classical theater.

Experience Woman Great

I didn't think; I experimented.~Anthony Burgess


Experience Think

In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.~Ansel Adams

So when you're developing in innovation, you have to be a dictator.~Ashton Kutcher


Time Experience Innovation

Creativity is an energy. It's a precious energy, and it's something to be protected. A lot of people take for granted that they're a creative person, but I know from experience, feeling it in myself, it is a magic; it is an energy. And it can't be taken for granted.~Ava DuVernay


Myself Experience Creative

I had a weirdly awesome high-school experience.~Abbi Jacobson


Experience Awesome Weirdly

Experience World

The main thing that I learned from my horrible job experiences was how horrible they were.~Adam Carolla

Experience Truth May

The only concept or experience or core belief that I can attribute my other-ness to is that I just started out a weirdo and I stayed a weirdo. And it took me a long time to embrace my outsidership and see it as a strength rather than a weakness.~Aisha Tyler


Time Strength Experience

Any album that you pick up of mine, you know it's an Akon album. The guests are very limited, and you get to really feel the experience. You get the Akon experience when you get the albums.

Experience Focus Want

Experience Learn Singing

Food is one part of the experience. And it has to be somewhere between 50 to 60 percent of the dining experience. But the rest counts as well: The mood, the atmosphere, the music, the feeling, the design, the harmony between what you have on the plate and what surrounds the plate.~Alain Ducasse


Music Food Experience

Music is, of course, a universal emotional experience, cutting across cultures and languages. I studied piano for ten years as a child and consider that experience one of the most valuable in my life.~Alan Lightman


Life Music Experience

Novels aren't pedagogical instruments, or instructions in law or physics or any other discipline. A novel has to be an emotional experience, a trip of the imagination, and because science has raised so many issues that concern and affect humans, it's a good starting place for me.~Alan Lightman


Experience Good Science

My experience as a refugee had made me strong; I could survive anything, even the world of fashion.~Alek Wek


Experience Strong World

What I found is that experience in the World Series made me connect more with the fans.~Alex Rodriguez

Work Experience Day

Lollapalooza, that was one of my worst shows. We just played at, like, 3 in the afternoon; it was like the hottest, most miserable thing. My shoes were melting. I just thought I was going to die. It was the most horrible experience. I lasted, what, four songs? In front of quite a lot of people. That was one of my least favorites.~Alison Mosshart


Experience Shoes People

Work Time Experience

My life experience has taught me nothing happens by chance. Even the idea of the ball in a roulette game: it's not chance it ends up in a certain place. It's forces that are at play.~Andrea Bocelli


Life Experience Chance

I am not in favour of quotas. Just put the best person into the job. It is not about gender; it is about experience, leadership and vision.~Angela Ahrendts

Experience Today Listening

There is no question that creative intelligence comes not through learning things you find in books or histories that have already been written, but by focusing on and giving value to experience as it happens.~Antony Gormley


Learning Experience

Experience End Doing

Being in love is the only transcendent experience.~Armistead Maupin


Love Experience Love Is

'Control' had to do with my own life a lot, and that's why that seemed to be a film I could be the director of, because I had an emotional attachment to the whole story. And because of that experience, I feel that I can try other films. I didn't set out to become a director.~Anton Corbijn


Life Experience Control

It may sound very strange, but I love the freedom that writing a novel gives me. It is an unhindered experience. If I come after a bad day, I can decide that my protagonist will die on page 100 of my novel in a 350-page story.~Ashwin Sanghi


Love Experience Freedom

Before I worked on film, I studied the theatre, and I expected that I would spend my whole career in theatre. Gradually, I started writing for the cinema. However, I feel grateful towards the theatre. I love working with spectators, and I love this experience with the theatre, and I like theatre culture.~Asghar Farhadi


Love Experience Culture

I think that's the key for a good team, to work together like a family. It's something that I've learned over the years with the experience that I've gotten over 10 seasons.~Asdrubal Cabrera


Family Work Experience

Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.~Auguste Rodin


Time Experience Nothing

Experience Good Boss

People are getting away from the whole album experience, it's true. I think that's sad. Maybe I'm just saying that because I'm an old fart. But I can't help it - albums are what I grew up with, and I still love them.~Alex Lifeson


Love Experience Sad

I never thought about writing a novel until I was 13, and that happened by chance. I was on school holidays, and I was bored, and I thought I just wanted to do something to occupy myself instead of asking, 'What can I do, mum? Entertain me.' I started, and it really just took over, and I realised, 'Wow, this is an amazing experience.'~Alexandra Adornetto


Myself Experience School

I'm not an experienced sailor.~Alfie Allen


Sailor Experienced

My wife and I use a lot of garlic and rosemary with roast lamb. It has to be New Zealand lamb. The domestic variety is too gamy, in my experience.~Alfred Molina


Wife Experience New

Respect Experience Living

It's been my experience that the longer I do yoga, the more I want to know, the more I am able to understand and the less judgmental I am.~Ali MacGraw


Experience I Am Want

Relationship Experience

Experience means conflict, our natures being what they are, and conflict means drama.~Allen Tate


Experience Conflict Drama

Dramatic experience is not logical; it may be subdued to the kind of coherence that we indicate when we speak, in criticism, of form.~Allen Tate


Experience May Speak

I think you leave your imprint on every screenplay. I like to bring my experience as a woman to all my female characters that hopefully makes them a little more layered and complex.~Allison Schroeder


Experience Woman You

London 2012 was superb. It was the best triathlon experience in a million years.~Alistair Brownlee


Best Experience London

Life Music Experience

I just wanted to do something about the teenage experience; it's such a wonderful and horrible time of life.~Amy Heckerling


Life Time Experience

An adolescent is somebody who is in between things. A teenager is somebody who's kind of permanently there. And so living with them through the various teenage hopes and sorrows and joys was curiously enough a maturing experience for me.~Andrew Greeley


Experience Me Living

Most men are very attached to the idea of being male, and usually experience a lot of fear and insecurity around the idea of being a man. Most women are very identified with their gender, and also experience a tremendous amount of fear and insecurity.~Andrew Cohen


Women Experience Fear

I am already inherently full and complete as I am. Man doesn't need woman and woman doesn't need man in order to experience his or her inherent fullness.~Andrew Cohen


Experience Woman Man

In my experience, men are not necessarily less sensitive or compassionate than women are, and women are not necessarily any less aggressive or competitive than men are - as a matter of fact, often they are more so!~Andrew Cohen


Women Experience Men

Our relationship to reality and to our experience is all based upon the ideas in our mind that we're always trying to live up to.~Andrew Cohen


Relationship Experience

When you come together with your other half, you immediately experience a sense of wholeness and completeness.~Andrew Cohen


Experience Together You

Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.~Angela Carter


History Experience Book

Poverty is more than a material experience; it's a psychological state as well, one that is infused with anxiety. And decision-making is very complex because every decision you make has an impact on your future and survival.~Ann Cotton


Future Experience Decision

My faith experience, well, as you can imagine, you need a lot of faith to raise five boys.~Ann Romney


Experience Faith You

It's been quite an experience, being conservative and living in the North East.~Ann Romney


Experience Living East

The more personalized television gets, the less passive the experience will become.~Anne Sweeney


Experience Television Will

The more opportunities people have to experience television on different platforms, the more television they consume overall. So there actually has been a benefit, but the ratings have gone down. But we've seen kind of the horizontal benefit of this. And it remains a great, great promotion engine.~Anne Sweeney


Experience Great People

As I get older, I want to draw on my experience to make roles better. I see that in the older women who inspire me - their experience makes them better.~Anne-Marie Duff


Women Experience Inspire

I just spent a lot of time on 'ER' for that eight years. I also started working when I was 16, so by the time I left 'ER,' I was 40 years old, I had this incredible experience, my wife had this great company, we had four kids, it was like, 'Let's go to New York and live for a while and make that the priority.'~Anthony Edwards


Wife Time Experience

The experience of having a child does crack you wide open. I felt like I suddenly had to rebuild the skin that I'd grown over the years before having a child. Perhaps that might be quite interesting in terms of acting.~Anne-Marie Duff


Experience Child Acting

I just love the days when you come out of the archives with half a dozen excellent descriptions or poignant accounts of personal experiences.~Antony Beevor


Love You Experiences

When you experience the emotion of sadness, there will be changes in facial expression, and your body will be closed in, withdrawn. There are also changes in your heart, your guts: they slow down. And there are hormonal changes.~Antonio Damasio


Experience Heart Changes

Like every aspect of cancer I've weathered thus far, today's experience was not at all demoralizing, expensive or humiliating. No, it was just plain fun.~April Winchell


Experience Today Fun

Even though I always knew I had a good nose for fragrances, the process of creating my own, 'Alive,' turned out to be a great learning experience for me. And the name explains my reason behind it. Smelling good makes you feel alive.~Arjun Rampal


Learning Experience Good

The greatest question of all is whether our experience on this planet is 'it' or whether there is something else. Things in the supernatural realm give support, strangely perhaps, to the things we take on faith.~Art Bell


Experience Faith Support

Proper training and federal supervision in state-federal partnerships are essential to both assuring constitutional rights and enforcing our immigration laws. Our Founding Fathers' concept of federalism does not prohibit such cooperation, and we have learned from experience that joint efforts work best.~Asa Hutchinson


Work Best Experience

Reading the play at home, however fulfilling, can never be the vivacious experience that Shakespeare intended.~Arthur Smith


Home Experience Reading

Experience Grow Up Want

Experience is the extract of suffering.~Arthur Helps


Experience Suffering

Everything is discursive opinion instead of direct experience.~A. R. Ammons


Experience Opinion

What happens to the Microsofts, Oracles and IBMs of the world is that when they get big enough, they don't think they need to bring that same level of focus and energy to the end-user experience.~Aaron Levie


Experience Focus World

I'm not from a political family and didn't grow up dreaming of being George Washington. I started working in 8th grade and have held every odd job possible - working in a gravel pit, weighing big wheelers, ticket sales, data base management - but I knew if I worked hard and got experience, I could apply that experience to my next endeavor.~Aaron Schock


Family Experience Job

It'll be interesting to raise kids in New York City. I'm from suburbia, so I don't really have any experience with what it's going to be like here.~Aaron Lazar


Experience City New

Each year I host a leadership summit in my district, and my biggest advice to young people is get experience. Get your foot in the door.~Aaron Schock


Leadership Experience Door

Mulberry Street was the beating heart of the Italian-American experience, but you don't find those gangsters now. I live with a bunch of yuppies and models.~Abel Ferrara


Experience Heart Live

When we get people to log in, they end up using Quora a lot more, and we can provide a lot better experience for them. We can show them a personalized news feed; we can send them digest emails and do all this ranking to find some stuff they want to read.~Adam D'Angelo


Experience End People

When I work in the theater, you know you'll get this almost devotional, religious experience where you're breaking bread with everyone every day.~Adam Rapp


Work Experience Day

I saw 'Six Degrees of Separation' because my brother was in it. It was a watershed experience. It was theatrical and scary, and New York functioned like a character. John Guare became a hero for me.~Adam Rapp


Experience Character Hero

We learn from each other. We learn from others' mistakes, from their experience, their wisdom. It makes it easier for us to come to better decisions in our own lives.~Adrian Grenier


Wisdom Experience Mistakes

My path has not been determined. I shall have more experiences and pass many more milestones.~Agnetha Faltskog


Experience Path Milestones

I think it's a different experience for plus-size women in film and television to get clothes for events. It's just not as welcoming for us to get cool clothes that are, like, equal in glamour, in style, to what, I am going to say, 'small size' co-stars get to wear.~Aidy Bryant


Women Experience Cool

Some creative writing programs seem evil, but my experience at Irvine was totally the opposite, where I feel like they were really good at focusing in on each writers voice and setting. When I felt like I was obligated to write a story that was more typical, no one really liked it.~Aimee Bender


Experience Good Creative

I don't eschew autobiographical writing, but I'm not interested in mine to be so straightforward. The things that tend to move me the most are often those that I have to figure out its meaning for myself. The human being's ability to make a metaphor to describe a human experience is just really cool.~Aimee Bender


Myself Experience Cool

I get a little myopic in the act of doing any writing. I think I'm not as interested or not as able to write about balance, because I think there's something I want to try to get at. I'm trying to get at something about the experience of growing up or about families.~Aimee Bender


Experience Balance Writing

I was very interested in that. It is very important to have confidence as well as to build up experience.~Alain Prost


Experience Confidence Up

My feeling is that writing is, for me, a pathological condition. That could sound like a mystical experience, and it may be a mystical experience, but I have learnt just to go with it.~Alan Garner


Experience May Writing

Experience really does make you better, man.~Alan Vega


Experience Man Better

If I had to do a lot of promotion as a kid, it would have been very intense. I'm really glad I got to go through high school, have a college experience, and have the last five years since then, just... being a person.~Alden Ehrenreich


Experience School College

I've had that experience many, many, times - when you don't get roles. I'd developed a good muscle for shaking it off. I buy myself a present whenever I don't get a role that I really wanted. You get bummed out, and then you go, 'Oh! Now I get to go buy a present for myself.' That kind of helps.~Alden Ehrenreich


Myself Experience Good

I really enjoyed my time in state government. I thought we made a difference. I liked being a part of that effort. I had a different experience in Washington.~Alberto Gonzales


Time Experience Government

When you're watching a Hitchcock movie, you, for most of the movie, are playing the guessing game. What's the endgame? What's the plot? How are these people involved? It's the best way to tell the story, and as a viewer, that's what you want to experience.~Alex Kurtzman


Best Experience People

Here's what I'll say: some toys should be movies, and some toys should not be toys, and I'd like to believe we know the difference between those two things. The movies that work, work when there is a story there that you can take the toy out of, but when you put the toy in, it becomes an even more amazing experience for whatever reason.~Alex Kurtzman


Work Experience Amazing

I did a modeling gig for Burberry once, and it was a great experience, but no I am not a model. I want to be a model because it's a lot easier than acting.~Alex Pettyfer


Experience Great I Am

It was also my experience at Hull-House that aroused my interest in industrial diseases.~Alice Hamilton


Experience Interest

Songwriting isn't always something that's directly proportionate to the experience.~Amos Lee


Experience Always

The cool thing about being a songwriter, or a writer, I guess, in general, you can take on a lot of different things, experience a lot of different things, just by writing about them.~Amos Lee


Experience Cool Writing

In my experience, if people don't have a sense of humor, they are usually not very good scientists, either.~Andre Geim


Experience Good Humor

I always feel that crime films are about capitalism because it is a genre where it is perfectly acceptable for all the characters to be motivated by the desire for money. In some ways, the crime film is the most honest American film because it portrays Americans as I experience a lot of them, in Hollywood, as being very concerned with money.~Andrew Dominik


Money Experience American

Plan for each episode to be a satisfying experience, but still leave the audience thinking, 'Oh, my God! Now what?'~Andrew Davies


Experience God Thinking

Telling the world is the most difficult experience of my life, but it is very close to having to live through the experience that occasion this meeting.~Anita Hill


Life Experience World

I prefer department stores. In boutiques, they come up and ask you if you need help. I can't get lost in the experience.~Anna Netrebko


Experience Lost Help

When confronted with the facts of foreign atrocities, the experience is often consigned to the realm of the unimaginable. Fiction makes the unimaginable imaginable.~Anthony Marra


Experience Facts Fiction

I remember the first time I read Freud, I was 25 or 30, and I was expecting it to be about the Oedipus complex. But what I actually discovered confirmed my own common experience, that you also had little boys who loved their fathers and little girls who loved their mothers.~Arnaud Desplechin


Mothers Time Experience

Ruby in Paradise and the intensity and quality that I was able to experience on Smoke were equally as important to me as working on this movie every day for three-and-a-half months.~Ashley Judd


Experience Day Quality

For my career, I want to be able to do projects that have serious context to them or that make me grow as a person and an artist after the experience.~Ashton Sanders


Experience Artist Me

While my trips are most often focused on business, I always try to take some time to experience the local culture.~Aslaug Magnusdottir


Time Business Experience

You are traveling and see these people shooting the entire experience of going through a city, and maybe in the back of their minds they sustain the illusion that they will edit it all, but I don't think that's it.~Atom Egoyan


Experience People City

Instead of going out, I'm trying to encourage people to have a memorable experience in their own home. We call it 'Delicioso Night In.' I invite the people I care about the most. Then, when I get a lot of people together, I like to have finger foods.~Aaron Sanchez


Home Experience Together

It is our experience that political leaders do not always mean the opposite of what they say.~Abba Eban


Experience Politics

Combat is a piece of war. But war is a totalizing, uncivilized experience.~Abigail Disney


War Experience Combat

It's the same thing that drives people to want to experience sexual pleasure or have one too many drinks. We all want to experience the other, and to get out of our daily existence.~Adam Arkin


Experience Daily People

We don't have performances as big as 'Lemonade Mouth' on 'Zeke and Luther,' but they're both amazing experiences; just, 'Lemonade Mouth' was a bit bigger. It was different for me.~Adam Hicks


Amazing Me Experiences

I mean, the acting school I went to, we did have a social experience, but you know, when it's a bunch of actors, it's everyone self-consciously having a social experience rather than just having a social experience.~Adam Scott


Experience School Acting

I'm still good friends with everybody from 'Teen Wolf.' I still see them, and I go to Jeff Davis' for 'Teen Wolf' night when I can. It was such a rewarding experience. That's such a fun set.~Adelaide Kane


Experience Good Friends

I wanted to wash off the experience of Africa but obviously I couldn't because that's who I was.~Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje


Experience Africa Because

I was a wild, mischievous kid, and I had tremendous imagination. Any experience I had, I'd try to reenact it.~Adrien Brody


Experience Imagination Try

Any place that anyone can learn something useful from someone with experience is an educational institution.~Al Capp


Experience Learn Place

Teaching does allow me to keep one foot in the youthful waters I tend to occupy in my novels, so I'm thankful for that. My students also remind me on a daily basis that the stories I collected during my district attorney days are actually interesting to people who haven't had that experience.~Alafair Burke


Thankful Experience Daily

For me personally, the way I've been trained, just through life experience - the harder something is, the harder you have to work for it, the more worthwhile it is, and you just have to know that going in.~Aldis Hodge


Life Work Experience

Moving around a lot allows you to experience many different cultures and learn about the ways that different people in different parts of the country live, and it probably made me somewhat more adventuresome and allowed me to meet my future wife in Pensacola.~Alan G. Poindexter


Wife Future Experience

So I had the worst experience at the very beginning, and things have been getting better since.~Alex Cox


Experience Beginning

Movies began as a communal experience. Even though we now watch them as DVD's, sometimes alone on our computers, mostly in the history of cinema it has been a communal experience.~Alison Owen


History Experience Alone

The first piece of advice I would have from my experience is that governments need to be vocal about human rights.~Amal Clooney


Experience Advice Rights

I think the joy of any soap opera is it is always there. You are allowed into this world for a little while and it's safe in that you are watching other people go through some troubles rather than yourself. It's there every night, and there is something special about that sort of terrestrial television experience for a mass audience.~Amanda Donohoe


Experience Joy Night

I'm friends with a lot of actresses, but my 'SNL' friends are my closest. The experience of working there is something of a battleground, a great one, but complicated. I think there's a deep connection for having survived that workplace.~Ana Gasteyer


Experience Deep Great

There are some beautiful books out there. But the ones that leave me cold are the ones where I feel - it's that postmodern thing - it's more experimentation with language than it is a deep compassionate falling into another human being's experience.~Andre Dubus III


Beautiful Experience Deep

I think the biggest adjustment I've made before coming here was going from High A to Double A. I was going in facing pitchers who had more experience and knew how to throw all their stuff for strikes and in hitter's counts, things like that.~Andrew Benintendi


Experience Think High

The reason humans experience so much more stress than other species isn't just because we think more, but also because we think differently.~Andrew J. Bernstein


Experience Stress Think

The less you think counterfactually, the less you experience stress. Stress, in this light, isn't a bad thing. It's simply a warning system telling you that your mind has lost touch with what's real.~Andrew J. Bernstein


Experience Light Stress

During the financial crisis, I worked with hundreds of executives who struggled as a result of their thoughts about job security. When their beliefs changed, so did their emotional experience - and they were then able to focus on the task at hand more effectively.~Andrew J. Bernstein


Experience Focus Job

Playing in sold out arenas several nights a week is something I have never experience before. I want to experience that. I want to experience that in my first year and build on that.~Andrew Bogut


Experience Week Want

There is only one thing more painful than learning from experience and that is not learning from experience.~Archibald MacLeish


Learning Experience

In my experience, staying in a marriage that my ex and I both agreed had all its best moments behind it was epically depressing.~Ariel Gore


Marriage Best Experience

Sometimes in this country, we don't focus a lot on people's experience and their resume. Mitt Romney would be the most experienced executive to be nominated since 1952. The fundamental task for the next president is going to be fixing things, cleaning things up, being a turnaround artist, if you will.~Artur Davis


Experience Focus People

Civilization never stands still; if in one country it is falling back, in another it is changing, evolving, becoming more complicated, bringing fresh experience to body and mind, breeding new desires, and exploiting Nature's cupboard for their satisfaction.~Arthur Keith


Nature Experience Mind

The emphasis of my government is to take advantage from the Chinese experience in the fields of agriculture, fisheries, energy, infrastructure, development, health and high efficiency irrigation.~Asif Ali Zardari


Experience Health Energy

I love food and am very good at improvising when preparing it - it's a really creative experience for me.~Autumn Reeser


Love Food Experience

Immediately after the Floyd experience, I became a pop record producer.~Alan Parsons


Experience Producer Pop

I can understand that there are those who can think and imagine the world without words, but I think that once you find the words that name your experience, then suddenly that experience becomes grounded, and you can use it and you can try to understand it.~Alberto Manguel


Experience Words World

I remember, as a child, the confusion of not knowing what this place was where I was supposed to spend the night: it's a disquieting experience for a child. And what I would do was quickly unpack my books and go back to a book I knew well and make sure the same text and the same illustrations were there.~Alberto Manguel


Experience Child Book

Any experience that isn't fun is probably something I will at least use in my writing someday.~Alex Flinn


Experience Writing Fun

One of the things about being raised British in Africa is that you get this double whammy of toughness. The continent in place itself made you quite tough. And then you've got this British mother whose entire being rejects 'coddling' in case it makes you too soft. So there's absolutely nothing standing between you and a fairly rough experience.~Alexandra Fuller


Mother Experience Tough

In ways I don't entirely have the words for, an experience, thought or a lesson isn't real for me until I've written down.~Alexandra Fuller


Experience Words Me

That's an important lesson for me, to not qualify my experience against somebody else's. My experience is the experience that I wanted to have, and have created for myself, but it doesn't make me any more deserving than anybody else - or less.~Alexis Denisof


Myself Experience Me

I think we love bacon because it has all the qualities of an amazing sensory experience. When we cook it, the sizzling sound is so appetizing, the aroma is maddening, the crunch of the texture is so gratifying and the taste delivers every time.~Alexandra Guarnaschelli


Love Time Experience

I'd never been to a prom, I had never had the whole high school experience. I think I was kind of an anomaly. I don't think they knew where to put me.~Alicia Witt


Prom Experience School

Working with the likes of Joseph Fiennes was just an incredible experience.~Alice Eve


Experience Working Likes

One has a greater sense of degradation after an interview with a doctor than from any human experience.~Alice James


Experience Medical Doctor

I suppose one has a greater sense of intellectual degradation after an interview with a doctor than from any human experience.~Alice James


Experience Doctor Human

I think Kurt Sutter's different as a creator for different people. My experience of Kurt Sutter has always been a really professional, lovely one. I like Kurt Sutter very much.~Ally Walker


Experience People Think

I think I draw most inspiration from writers like Richelle Mead and filmmakers like John Hughes. They both really understand the experience of being a teenager and how insistent and intense everything feels, but they're also smart, savvy, and fun.~Amanda Hocking


Experience Smart Fun

I don't regret any decision in my life... not my career, not marriage. Every experience has been so fulfilling in so many ways.~Amrita Singh


Life Marriage Experience

Dad's cancer experience included periods of relatively good health as well as bouts of hospitalisation as he coursed his way through a variety of different chemotherapy treatments.~Amy Hoggart


Experience Good Health

I offer my expertise and experience for hire in order to help a group of people reach the summit.~Anatoli Boukreev

People respected my experience, they hire me, they pay me what I am worth to coach their team.~Anatoli Boukreev


Experience Team I Am

I've had the healthy and sobering experience of constantly working with music that is invariably better than any performance of it can be.~Andre Previn


Music Experience Better

It was a beautiful experience for her, the experience that she had that she confesses. It wasn't dirty and it wasn't horrible and wasn't shattering. It was a wonderful, liberating experience.~Andrew McCarthy


Beautiful Experience She

So something about that touched me, obviously, when I was young and it just stayed with me. I'm always amazed by that, because my experience seems to be so much different than what I'm told, so much of the time.~Andrew McCarthy


Time Experience Me

The more you do, the more experience you have and the next time it will be easier to choose the right thing.~Andy Lau


Time Experience You

Go and experience life the way that someone else might experience it. Maybe you'll find meaning in a different corner of your brain. The fact that it changed doesn't negate the fact that it ever mattered.~Angel Olsen


Life Experience Brain

Growing up in Mississippi - a state that historically was a place of racial injustice, inequality and oppression - gave me the unique opportunity to experience first-hand the evolution of the civil rights movement through the eyes of my parents, grandparents, and the black elders of our community.~Angela McGlowan


Parents Experience Eyes

Everything is a learning experience.~Angus T. Jones


Learning Experience

A writer loses possession of her work as soon as it's reaches its audience. Each reader brings his own experience and prejudice and imagination to the work. Television adaptation just goes one step further, and the novelist has to learn to let go.~Ann Cleeves


Work Experience Step

We've all learned about this disease since it was first discovered several years ago in Europe. And so I think we've learned from the European experience.~Ann Veneman


Experience Think Disease

I'm not sure plays tell people anything. I think plays include an audience in an experience that is happening in that moment, and that's the specialness. What people take away has almost as much to do with what they bring as what we do.~Anna D. Shapiro


Experience Moment People

I wish theater criticism in this country could be more of a companion piece to the experience than a warning about where not to spend your money.~Anna D. Shapiro


Money Experience Wish

All my experience of the world teaches me that in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, the safe and just side of a question is the generous and merciful side.~Anna Jameson


Experience World Me

Growing up in Poland, I didn't have the experience of going to Disneyland as a child, so I don't have any childhood memories connected to it, good or bad.~Abel Korzeniowski


Memories Experience Good

When I put something into motion, the creativity starts to make other people want to jump in, and then a lot of people get employed. I'm just like a shark, in that way. If I stop swimming, I'll die. But, it really is about that shared experience with people. I'm from theater, and that's really what theater feels like.~Adam Shankman


Experience Creativity

When I work, I'm thinking in terms of purely visual effects and relations, and any verbal equivalent is something that comes afterwards. But it's inconceivable to me that I could experience things and not have them enter into my painting.~Adolph Gottlieb


Work Experience Thinking

There have always been poets who performed. Blake sang his Songs of Innocence and Experience to parties of friends.~Adrian Mitchell


Experience Friends Always

You don't buy experience at the pharmacy. You acquire it through games over time. Every player must go through that, but when the federation hired me, they told me they wanted new players and young players who will prepare for the future.~Agustin Castillo


Time Future Experience

As a young entrepreneur starting an enterprise company, be prepared for the fact that you'll need to get involved in enterprise sales. Everyone wants to speak to the founder, and this is also how you'll get feedback on your product. It's worth bringing in early somebody with enterprise sales experience.~Anthony Goldbloom


Experience Speak Young

I owed Lewis one thing, at least. Once you had suffered the experience of presenting a case at one of his Monday morning conferences, no other public appearance, whether on radio, TV or the lecture platform, could hold any terrors for you.~Anthony Storr


Morning Experience Monday

I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I've been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me - you're doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.~Anthony Doerr


Experience School May

Of course, experience strengthens one later.~Anton Seidl


Experience Later Course

The connection to place, to the land, the wind, the sun, stars, the moon... it sounds romantic, but it's true - the visceral experience of motion, of moving through time on some amazing machine - a few cars touch on it, but not too many compared to motorcycles. I always felt that any motorcycle journey was special.~Antoine Predock


Time Journey Experience

Underwater, I experience space with my body. I'll see a school of fish gathering and moving together and I'll exclaim, 'This is architecture.'~Antoine Predock


Experience School Together

I was told to have an ice bath once, which I did once, and it was the most horrific experience. In my head it sounded like a great idea, so I filled my bath with ice and water, and it was absolutely horrendous.~Antony Starr


Experience Water Great

I limited myself to one shout a day. But I didn't like the sound of my voice. It sounded panicked, it sounded scared. And I knew from experience you can't hear more than 50 yards either way down a canyon.~Aron Ralston


Myself Experience Day

On the intimate level, anyone who has loved a companion animal knows the uniquely wonderful experience these 'other nations' provide, and their important presence in our shared lives. In their very local way they show us the global truth of our real wealth, our biodiversity.~April Gornik

Many people experience Gethsemane moments.~Arthur Middleton


Experience People Moments

I've had some of the best and most traumatizing experiences at NBC.~Ashleigh Banfield


Best Experiences Most

It's been said that horror films are experimental forms of art, and I agree. As an actress, you're put in positions and have to experience emotions that are way beyond reality, whether fighting in a post-apocalyptic world or being possessed by the Devil.~Ashley Bell


Art Experience World

Yeah, the whole 'One Tree Hill' experience made me realize I wanna write, and produce, and direct as well as act. I'm interested in all facets of the industry.~Ashley Rickards


Experience Tree Me

I think every role you do prepares you for the next one. Of course, 'Nashville' has been, and will continue to be, a huge learning experience for me as an actor. It's something that I grew a lot doing.~Aubrey Peeples


Learning Experience Me

Experience, which plays such an important part in culinary work, is nowhere so necessary as in the preparation of sauces, for not only must the latter flatter the palate, but they must also very in savour, consistence, and viscosity, in accordance with the dishes they accompany.~Auguste Escoffier


Work Experience Important

I see the American experience as being defined by the immigrant paradigm of rupture and renewal: rupture with the old world, the old ways, and renewal of the self in a bright but difficult New World.~Ayad Akhtar


Experience Self World

I feel like one of the things that is central to American life is the religious experience, and I think that the experience of being Muslim in America is as valid and as important a perspective on the religious experience of America as evangelical Christianity or Judaism - whatever it may be.~Ayad Akhtar


Life Experience May

The human race has had long experience and a fine tradition in surviving adversity. But we now face a task for which we have little experience, the task of surviving prosperity.~Alan Gregg


Experience Adversity Long

In life there are no problems, that is, objective and external choices; there is only the life which we do not resolve as a problem but which we live as an experience, whatever the final result may be.~Alberto Moravia


Life Experience May

The best way to learn how to work with actors is to have had experience of trying to act yourself - it will teach you humility if nothing else.~Alexander Mackendrick

'As the World Turns' was such a great experience and such a great school for me. It was better than any class I could have ever taken.~Alexandra Chando

DivX Plus Streaming provides secure streaming delivery of a feature rich premium digital entertainment experience to connected devices including HDTVs, Blu-ray players, smartphones, game consoles, PCs, Max and cable set-top boxes.~Alfred Amoroso

I think if companies start reinventing themselves and focus on the customer experience more, they will win out in the end.~Alfred Lin


Experience End Focus

Do you know that my very first experience as a composer was a 'Concerto for Accordion?'~Alfred Schnittke


Experience You Know

I am so not a pageant girl, but I signed up for the Miss Junior Florida contest because I thought it would be good experience.~Amanda Latona


Experience Good I Am

As a fan of the books, I feel fortunate to be part of 'The Hunger Games' family. It was an amazing experience; I am proud of the film and my performance. I want to thank all of my fans and the entire 'Hunger Games' community for their support and loyalty.~Amandla Stenberg


Family Experience Loyalty

I'm ridiculously fortunate to get a chance to experience the sitcom world. The schedule is extremely easy, and you get fed as an artist because you're not only working on a project, but you get to work with cameras, and you get the audience there.~Andrea Anders


Work Experience World

Latinos come from different countries, and they tend to segregate with only their country instead of embracing all the other countries, because in reality, all the Latinos are going through the same experiences of discrimination and racism.~Andrea Navedo


Racism Reality Experiences

When I was 11, I went to Puerto Rico for a month to stay with my grandmother. To see the way people lived there and experience my own culture was wonderful.~Andrea Navedo


Experience Grandmother

The experience of the race shows that we get our most important education not through books but through our work. We are developed by our daily task, or else demoralized by it, as by nothing else.~Anna Garlin Spencer


Education Work Experience

I will respect the limits of my experience but that won't stop me from trying to lead by example of my work. Being a good teammate and picking them up on and off the field is a simple goal of mine.~Anthony Rizzo


Work Respect Experience

Just going to Comic-Con alone, that's an unreal experience on its own. I think if everyone in the world could experience that place, it would change their outlook. It's just one big lovefest. It's pretty incredible.~Ari Millen


Change Experience Alone

Not that the propositions of geometry are only approximately true, but that they remain absolutely true in regard to that Euclidean space which has been so long regarded as being the physical space of our experience.~Arthur Cayley


Experience Space Long

A foreign ideology cannot be introduced into Chechnya - were it through an Arab or al-Qaeda. Our experience is rich and long enough for us to be Muslims and know what jihad is.~Aslan Maskhadov


Experience Rich Long

For me, making music is a continuous learning experience, and I think that it feeds itself.~Atticus Ross


Music Learning Experience

I didn't have that typical high school experience of feeling ashamed of who I was. I once wore a superman cape and pajamas, and I thought that was awesome - and some people didn't! But some people did, and it was an arts high school, so nobody made me feel bad about who I was.~Aya Cash

I feel like everything will be a letdown after 'You're The Worst.' It was such a great experience.~Aya Cash
