I don’t really see myself as a socialite or as a ‘child of someone.’ I’d rather be working than going to fashion parties all the time.
—Amber Le Bon
I would seriously rather be in a long line at the DMV than eat with people I don’t know.
A committee is organic rather than mechanical in its nature: it is not a structure but a plant. It takes root and grows, it flowers, wilts, and dies, scattering the seed from which other committees...
And the user may have a higher comfort level deciding what information to provide rather than worrying about what inferences might be made from what they’ve gathered.
Rather, it is through conciliation and compromise that we are building a fair Iraq, a just state for all its peoples.
I would rather not work than be a neurotic mess.
You have to talk about why things happened the way they did. You can’t actually explain my political life except by a series of situations rather than by some carefully constructed, rigidly progressed ascendancy.
I have very fond memories of swimming in Walden Pond when we lived in Boston. You’d swim past a log and see all these turtles sunning themselves. Slightly disturbing if you thought about how many...
I’d rather share the glory of a hit than star by myself in a flop.
Those powers that control the tent are not threatened at all by any activity that you engage in, in the shadows, that’s not moving toward the tent. And I am rather convinced that we have...
The banking collapse was caused, more than anything, by bad government policy and the total failure of bad regulation, rather than by greed.
Physics tells us observations can’t be predicted absolutely. Rather, there’s a range of possible observations each with a different probability.
I love to utilize my celebrity status in a responsible and constructive and substantive manner. I like to get my hands dirty rather than a photo op.
I think a lot of Indians want Indian artists to be cultural cheerleaders rather than cultural investigators.
I went to India and met some people who had been involved in this guerrilla business, middle-class people who were rather vain and foolish. There was no revolutionary grandeur to it. Nothing.
If I go to an awards ceremony, I wear a suit, of course I do. I am proud to be there. If there are young kids looking at pictures of me, I want them to...
I always felt like if you get to a point where you’ve got enough money to invest in something real, you gotta invest in anything that’s related to a natural resource because that’s gonna be...
In some ways, what I learned is that you can take a character and breathe with them, and it’s up to the audience to interpret rather than you putting moral stamp on the character.
Two or three things I know for sure, and one is that I’d rather go naked than wear the coat the world has made for me.
I’d rather have a hundred thousand or a million people saying I’m nuts and I’m crazy for my musical choices and what I’ve said lyrically, than a million people all raising their hand on the...
I would rather propose a bureau somewhat similar to that which we have in the Universal Postal Union.
I am a friend of the working man, and I would rather be his friend, than be one.
This flattery has been rather slow in coming. I think all of sudden late in life now I’m getting some credit for what I’ve done. Which is gratifying, but it’s kind of a little late.
Do you want Columbus to go across the ocean, or do you want to put a message in a bottle and hope that it lands somewhere? I’d rather have actual people be there. Whether they...
I’d rather buy something that is relatively depressed than something that is relatively high.
After trying Atkins and doing Nutrisystem a few times, now I’m just focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle rather than dieting.
Sometimes people fear the truth. They’d rather not speak to you than know what you really think.
I could have begged. They made it obvious to me that if I wanted to come back and be a good boy… but I’d rather be in Roots than Good Times.
I’d much rather be playing songs than talking to people.
Reason in man is rather like God in the world.
God, who preferred the correction rather than the death of a sinner, did not desire that a homicide be punished by the exaction of another act of homicide.
An unsophisticated forecaster uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts – for support rather than for illumination.
Don’t ever give up. Believe in yourself or no one else will. My personal saying is: ‘I’d rather die knowing that I tried to do what I love.’
There is a real hunger for information about Obama and a sense that information is not being covered or, in some cases, even being withheld. There is a sense that there are elements of the...
Rather than showing themselves to be an ally to the middle class by ending the AMT or repealing it for years to come, my Republican colleagues refused to include it in today’s legislation and America’s...
The work with which we embark on this first volume of a series of theological studies is a work with which the philosophical person does not begin, but rather concludes.
I would rather make feature movies because, let’s face it, you take more time. You take seven days to do a show, and you take three or four months to do a movie.
We don’t have as many managers as we should, but we would rather have too few than too many.
But the gravest difficulty, and perhaps the most important, in poetry meant solely for recitation, is the difficulty of achieving verbal beauty, or rather of making verbal beauty tell.
God doesn’t promise us escape from suffering or pain. Rather, He promises to miraculously use even bad situations for your ultimate good.
The president’s grand experiment in trickle-down government has held back rather than sped economic recovery. He seems to sincerely believe we can build a middle class out of government jobs paid for with borrowed dollars.
I look on most religions as fear-based rather than love-based. I’ve drifted away from all that. Yes, I think I’m more spiritual. I just don’t go and pretend every Saturday or Sunday that I’m in...
I joined a band because I didn’t like school, and there’s nothing else I’d rather have done. If I really wanted to make money, I’d be in real estate. But I’m rich enough. I have...
IBM isn’t investing billions of dollars every year into research and development – and winning more patents than our top 10 competitors combined for more than a decade – as an academic exercise. But research...
How different our national perspective would be had Johnson, rather than Nixon, served from 1969 to 1973.
People think because I can make them laugh on the stage, I’ll be able to make them laugh in person. That isn’t the case at all. I am essentially a rather quiet, dull person who...
I quit flying myself last year and that was difficult for me because I enjoy it as much as playing golf. It was an adjustment sitting in the back of the plane, rather than at...
Usually when people see me, they see me as more of the soft-spoken one rather than being the witty, smart-tongued character.
I’m quite intrigued by the notion of a book that is completely self-contained but related to another book. I’ve coined a rather hideous word for it – a paraquel.
Tourism is important because it can create sustainable local economies. I’d much rather have 1,000 tourists going up the Tambopata than 1,000 gold miners.
