All writers of fiction will at some point find themselves abandoning a piece of work – or find themselves putting it aside, as we gently say.
New York cops are very specific in terms of the way they talk and the way they handle themselves. All these cliches that, as an Englishman, I thought were from a bygone era or were...
‘Crash’ was incredibly personal to me. So was ‘In the Valley of Elah.’ There were things in ‘The Next Three Days’ that were questions I was asking myself but couldn’t answer, like how far would...

Something I always admire, especially in female comedians, is that they’re willing to make themselves look terrible.
You quickly find, when you are a hand-reader as I am, that nothing interests people so much as themselves.
What I don’t like is judges legislating from the bench. And as president of the United States, I will appoint justices who uphold the Constitution and who don’t see themselves as a super legislature.
The English reputation for humour is a way by which people avoid revealing themselves and have superficial relationships, so that you can engage in banter without making yourself vulnerable.
To go to the synagogue with one’s father on the Passover eve – is there in the world a greater pleasure than that? What is it worth to be dressed in new clothes from head...
Stubborn people get themselves in a lot of trouble, but they also get things done.
People everywhere enjoy believing things that they know are not true. It spares them the ordeal of thinking for themselves and taking responsibility for what they know.
We decline the claim to power by parties which want to own their followers body and soul, and which want to put themselves over and above the whole nation.
American people have the ability to laugh at themselves. It is one of the things that makes this country the great country that it is.
Why should someone have to retrain themselves to use a new application that does the same basic thing as the old application, just because something as trivial as the operating system changed out from under...
A lot of people are afraid to face themselves, especially when something goes wrong. But that’s important, because if something happens within a relationship, it could be how you’re allowing someone else to treat you.
The fundamental goal of Republicans and Democrats is to get themselves re-elected.
I am happy that the young girls have a lot more choices these days and an opportunity to feel better about themselves.
I guess it’s hard work… whatever the decision is, how to show it to people that aren’t necessarily dancers, how to get people to think about more than themselves.
A reader should encounter themselves in a novel, I think.
We all have points in our lives where two roads present themselves and we have to make a decision very fast. We don’t know how it will impact our lives, but it usually does.
Those who back the Syrian regime from now on will find themselves in an even more isolated and indefensible minority.
Things have a way of moving to the left, and then they move back to the right before somebody finds themselves in the center. That seems to be the nature of the creative world. It’s...
I’m light skinned, and I used to lean on that because that’s something a lot of black people pride themselves on, and it’s weird.
For most men life is a search for the proper manila envelope in which to get themselves filed.
I think one of my strengths is that I can always take advice, and I can delegate. I know a lot of people feel the need to do everything themselves, but I am not one...
I have a particular interest in corporations that give themselves a cultural aura and are in other areas suspect. Philip Morris presents itself in New York as the lover of culture while it turns out...
I believe that if it were possible to scrap the whole of existing literature, all writers would find themselves inevitably producing something very close to SF … No other form of fiction has the vocabulary...
My muse changes all the time because I think every designer is a bit of a muse for themselves in a way – they just don’t want to say it.
It’s nice if people can finally loosen up a little bit and just go out laugh at silliness. I mean, people take themselves way too seriously sometimes.
If a tech journalist needs financial security before doing what their conscience dictates, I’m not sure they should be calling themselves journalists at all.
I have great empathy for all the contestants that come on ‘Top Chef,’ whether they go home right away or they make it to the finish line. It’s a very vulnerable position they put themselves...
Iraqi national identity under Saddam Hussein never truly incorporated Shiites or Kurds. Sunnis, who identified most closely with the Iraqi nation, remain in some ways disenfranchised relative to the other groups, or at least they...
If you do have a team where every rider has a huge list of results, that means everybody wants to do the race for themselves. The strongest team in the Tour is not the strongest...
I have exercises that lead participants to discover for themselves that their deepest fulfillment comes when what they’re doing is of benefit to larger society in some way. This really knocks some for a loop...
Deficits do not in themselves produce inflation, nor does a balanced budget assure a stable price level.
Part of the success of the show is that the audience sees themselves in the characters, becomes the characters. The more they inhabit the characters, the more they see.
The rules of engagement have become so rigid that governments often straightjacket themselves in the face of unambiguous aggression.
When my daughter was 3, she was eating Cheerios and spilled some on the table. So she swiped them onto the floor. I said, ‘Darcy, what are you doing?’ She said: ‘Don’t worry, Daddy, the...
Because hip-hop has no requirements, you deal with people that have the least intelligence on the planet. Some of the people that compare themselves to me, compare themselves to me because they rap and I...
