In 2007, in the early 2007, everybody saw the housing market was falling, and at any given moment a lot of people thought it was going to fall more, and a lot of people thought it was going to rebound. You just didn’t know.
I’ve given up reading books. I find it takes my mind off myself.
My greatest disappointment is that I believe that those of us who went through the war and tried to write about it, about their experience, became messengers. We have given the message, and nothing changed.
I had sort of given up on conventional journalism. I found it far too restrictive.
For three hundred years we have had our focus on the individual. We have distinguished him from the objective world as the Middle Ages did not think of doing. We have given him the world and the universe as a playground for exploration and discovery.
I start from one point and go as far as possible. But, unfortunately, I never lose my way. I ‘localize,’ which is to say that I think always in a given space. I rarely think of the whole of a solo, and only very briefly. I always return to the small part of the solo that I was in the process of playing.
To have faith doesn’t mean you get any less frustrated when you don’t do your best, but you know that it’s not life and death. Take what you’re given, and when you continue to work hard, you will see results. That will give you the confidence you need to keep going.
In some ways, I lament the introduction of civilisation on such a huge scale, because it has given us a lot of room to abuse each other, which we continue to do.
I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given to participate in that work as a representative of my country, Canada, whose people have, I think, shown their devotion to peace.
I think there’s no reason the Davis Cup couldn’t be as powerful and popular and profitable as any of the four majors are today, given some changes.
Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the sum of all human knowledge. That’s what we’re doing.
When I was in 7th grade, we were all given an exam. It was science and math, and the boys who did well were skipped ahead so that when they got to be juniors or seniors in high school they would be able to go to the local community college and take calculus and physics there. And I wasn’t skipped ahead.
If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself.

Music is God’s gift to man, the only art of Heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to Heaven.

We have no companies now, not in the sense that I know, that nurture actors. It’s very depressing that, given the money they get, the companies today don’t number up in my estimation. They should be bringing on young talent, and they don’t.
If you’re a retailer and know that once a year you’re going to get Mary Higgins Clark‘s book on a given date, you’re going to have an awful lot of copies out there in time for that. You’d have to be simple-minded not to do that – although bookselling prior to 1950 never made that connection.
I often imagine that the longer he studies English literature the more the Japanese student must be astonished at the extraordinary predominance given to the passion of love both in fiction and in poetry.

We underestimate our people. Given a challenge, most of our people will do it, especially the youngsters who take to technology like duck to water.
People who are given whatever they want soon develop a sense of entitlement and rapidly lose their sense of proportion.
What is called generosity is usually only the vanity of giving; we enjoy the vanity more than the thing given.
As America celebrates Memorial Day, we pay tribute to those who have given their lives in our nation’s wars.
I don’t want the power. When a project is given to me, and I say yes, I’m gonna oblige everybody who has the power to try to make it work.
He that hath wife and children hath given hostages to fortune; for they are impediments to great enterprises, either of virtue or mischief.
I think it’d be pretty unrealistic to think we’re the only planet in the world with thinking beings. It’s kind of a strange conceit. Especially given how many universes there must be.
I’m great at a deathbed. I’ve never given tranquillisers or psychiatric medicine. I’ve given love and fun and creativity and passion and hope, and these things ease suffering.

I want minimum information given with maximum politeness.
What was freely given to me, I freely give.
For the past three or four years you know the crowd‘s behind you, supporting you, and to then be given a bit of a boo is not a good feeling.
I want to thank God, obviously for the health, for the talent He’s given me, for my family who supports me, for the things that basketball’s taught me on and off the court. For the people that I’ve been able to meet through the game of basketball.
Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.
No nation has embraced Total Quality Management, e-commerce and e-government with greater enthusiasm than Dubai. Such innovations have given Dubai a competitive edge and an accelerated growth rate that few could match.
Music would lose its charm were not dissonance interspersed at frequent intervals. The closer a composer can come to discord without actually entering it in the score, the more pleasing will be his composition when given life through musical instruments.
Anyone who has been given the gift of being opposite an actor who gives and gives, it just makes you better.
Instruction ends in the schoolroom, but education ends only with life. A child is given to the universe to be educated.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
The human person, whose definition serves as the touchstone according to which good must be distinguished from evil, is considered as sacred, in what one might call the ritual sense of the word. It has something of that transcendental majesty which the churches of all times have given to their Gods.
I’m looking for a Justice who appreciates the awesome responsibility that she will be given, if confirmed. A Justice who understands the gravity of the office and who respects the very different roles that the Constitution provides for each of the three branches of government.
Sacramento is where I grew up, so I felt like it had not been given its proper due in cinema.
There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.
Given where medicine is today, there may not be any traditional injuries that aren’t repairable.
Intersectionality has given many advocates a way to frame their circumstances and to fight for their visibility and inclusion.
I credit my success to my mother. Her prayers and support are everything to me. I know all she does for me, and I know nothing I do can ever pay back the amount of support she has given me.
Freedom cannot be given… It can only be taken away.
In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.

We’re put here on Earth to learn our own lessons. No one can tell you what your lessons are; it is part of your personal journey to discover them. On these journeys we may be given a lot, or just a little bit, of the things we must grapple with, but never more than we can handle.
