I’ve heard people say that God is the gift of desperation, and there’s a lot to be said for having really reached a bottom where you’ve run out of any more good ideas or plans for everybody else‘s behavior; or how to save and fix and rescue; or just get out of a huge mess, possibly of your own creation.
The Libertadores is sensational, but the Champions League… The first time I heard the anthem was a really special feeling. It’s like being in a video game; it’s living the dream of every child.

You also have to study the right subjects.
I’d never heard anything about this at all.
Two people in a conversation amount to four people talking. The four are what one person says, what he really wanted to say, what his listener heard, and what he thought he heard.

Isn’t that the most perverse thing you’ve ever heard?

I heard this massive thud. I spun around, and there Keith was, on the ground. He’d cut his gums up on impact, he was very bloody, and clutching his head. I think it was a kind of wake-up call for him.

I was about seven and I sang a song called, ‘Jesus, I Heard You Had a Big House‘ and I remember people standing up at the end and me thinking, ‘Oh, I think I’m going to like this.’ That’s how it all began. Sounds funny to say you got your start in church, but I did.
While most people in the world probably haven’t heard my name, Vladimir Putin thinks about my name on a very regular basis. He really dislikes me because I’m the guy responsible for the Magnitsky Act.

Vince Russo stuck up for me in WCW when it came down to who should be world champ. From what I’ve heard, there was a meeting, and Russo stood up for me. I would not be six-time world champion if it were not for Vince Russo. I would not even be one-time world champion if it weren’t for Vince Russo.
For me, coming up, the first I had ever heard of basketball? It was from my mom. She was a really good player back in her day, and even played college ball at Kentucky State.

It was a privilege to direct the music video for Adele’s beautiful, heartbreaking song, ‘Hello.’ When I first heard it, all the images appeared clearly in my head – and her trust and generosity allowed me to work with abandon artistically and emotionally, like she always does. It made me extremely proud.

It’s the same old story you’ve heard a thousand times. Somebody’s trust gets broken. Somebody’s left behind.

Women should be obscene and not heard.

Have you heard of this new thing called the internet? It’s giving people new expectations. It’s allowing them to become their own expert. Knowledge lies anxious at their fingertips. Gloss over the truth in your advertising and you’ll quickly be dismissed as a poser.
I’ve heard people on panels say, ‘You must have a Web site. You need to tweet. Repeat the title of your book constantly,’ and I just want to say, ‘Shut up. Everything you’re saying is wrong.’ People will know instantly if your only motivation for tweeting is to sell books.

If I’d been born ugly, you’d never have heard of Pele.
One of my favourite Donald Byrd tracks is ‘Think Twice,’ and I didn’t want to sample it. I’ve always enjoyed when other people have sampled it, so I wanted to instead of making a beat with it or something like that, or freak the beat of whatever. I wanted to just recreate it in my own way, like how I heard it.
I went to the opening of ‘Sister Act,’ and I had such a great time. I had no idea what it was about, and I had never seen the movies. But I heard the show went through some major last-minute craziness in previews, and man, opening night was really fun and really entertaining.
I have heard talk and talk, but nothing is done.
I heard what was said of the universe, heard it and heard it of several thousand years; it is middling well as far as it goes – but is that all?

Not all single women want to be married. Not all boys like football. Not all homemakers like to cook. Not all messy people are lazy. And not all the obese are gluttons.

I have a younger brother and sister who actually play in my band, and we were always into Disney music, big time. The first time I heard myself sing was when I recorded myself singing a Disney song.

My job is writing. I get paid to do it. When was the last time you heard someone challenge a doctor for making money off of cancer?
I have long been one of those tedious people who rails against the coronation of ‘student-athletes.’ I have heard the argument that big-time athletics bring in loads of money to universities. I don’t believe the money goes anywhere other than back into the sports teams, but that’s another story.
One day I heard a speech of Hitler. In this speech he said that the German factory worker and the German labourer must make common cause with the German intellectual worker.
I call myself a blues singer, but you ain’t never heard me call myself a blues guitar man.
My dark sound could be heard across a room clearer than somebody with a reedy sound. It had more projection. My sound always seemed to fill a room.
Sometimes, what’s not said is just as important to the writing as what is said. As a writer, we have our voices heard. I think that, at oftentimes, the ability to allow the dialogue to recede properly into the world of the film is also a really valid sort of way to be a writer, I think.
As an independent artist, there can be nothing better than the fact that your song will be played and heard in different corners of the world.
Wouldn’t you like to have heard the voice of Shakespeare, or Jesus Christ?
I’ve heard my father say that the man is to be the priest, the provider, and the protector of his family. He’s the priest because he is the spiritual leader, monitoring and growing the spiritual temperature of his family.
None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone.
Anirudh is phenomenal. His popularity among the youth is to be seen and heard to be believed.
Growing up in colonial Virginia, if you know anything about that part of the country, there was a number of tensions there. Because of that, you heard the family members talk about Dr. King and many others who were not just speaking out, but sacrificing a ton so that our world, our country could be a better place.
I’ve always said that I’ve been acting my whole life, and everyone always told me, ‘you should be an actress professionally.’ I’ve heard that my whole life, so it’s kind of cool to think, ‘yeah, they were right.’ I can do this and I’m good at it, and that feels really good.
I sang ‘Nessun Dorma’ twice with Pavarotti, and he told me he’d heard ‘Smoke‘ about five or six times, and every time was different. He was so jealous because if he deviated one jot from the traditional interpretation of the famous arias, he’d be crucified. We have the freedom.
And if citizens of New Orleans who are really contemplating coming back heard that we’re really intent upon making the place secure again – regardless of whether the levees held or not – then I think a rebuilding process would really take shape.
Every successful person I have heard of has done the best he could with the conditions as he found them, and not waited until next year for better.
I realize there is a paucity of African-Americans in my position. Everywhere I go, people say, ‘Don’t mess this up. Don’t forget about us.’ You feel a tremendous responsibility, not to take the black side of things but to make sure that side gets heard, because if I don’t do it, who’s going to do it?
I feel that I communicate best when I am not deliberately being linear. Along this same line, I feel some of the best sermons I’ve ever heard were in the theatre rather than the pulpit – as, for example, in the Theatre of the Absurd.

I enjoyed working with Peter, I was very pleased when I heard he was going to be the Doctor.
I was at the premiere of ‘Prisoners,’ and I heard two thousand people scream at the same time. I turned to my wife and said, ‘I love cinema!’ It’s the sharing of emotions together, and it’s collective. It’s one of the last communions we have.
I think it is important the communities are listened to and that their voice is heard, particularly with local government boundaries more than parliamentary boundaries, because you are talking very much about communities. It can be a very emotive thing.
This scepticism is the same scepticism I heard a generation ago in the USSR when few thought that a democratic transformation behind the iron curtain was possible.

I many times encountered courage, real courage. Undeniable courage. I’ve heard it said that that was the highest quality of the human animal. I encountered that many times, in unexpected places. And I have learned to recognize it when I see it.
I have heard some people say I have a low profile. Why should somebody be high profile, anyway? I am just doing my job.
Out of 30 years of Second City I was probably the third African-American with the main stage cast. I was surprised when I first heard that. I think part of the reason that improvisation has never been popular with African-Americans is that it isn’t popular in the inner cities.
Alison Krauss is definitely my favorite singer that’s ever lived. I’ve never heard anyone like her.
I think I’m alright as a lyricist, you know? But then what will happen every couple of months or so is that I’ll hear a song I’ve never heard before and feel I’ve gone right back to square one.
I didn’t really hear any other music other than what my dad was working on until I was 12.

For every child prodigy that you know about, at least 50 potential ones have burned out before you even heard about them.

I would love to buy a Koenigsegg Agera RS. It is such an incredible car. It has so much power, the sound is like no other V8 I’ve ever heard and if you get it just right, then it makes this incredible thunderous clap. I absolutely love that car.
I’ve heard a few times, in three or four years, this league is going to be yours. I don’t like that. Because I think I’m established now.
I’ve sort of heard that ‘it’ girl thing, but not really. Hearing it from a few people doesn’t solidify it in my mind and I wouldn’t know how to solidify that title. It’s so elusive and what does it mean, I don’t know?
I heard the Bloc Party record Japan before it came out in the UK as they are on the V2 record label. I think it has a great vibe and has great songs. I also think the Kings of Leon are right up my street.
For many years I had heard about an underworld consisting of people who act out a vampire fantasy while I was living in New York. Fortunately for me there are also several books on the phenomena.

I have heard people eat most heartily of another man‘s meat, that is, what they do not pay for.
My dad is a storyteller. I’ve heard his funny stories 500 times, but I would never stop him because he tells them so brilliantly and still knows where to put the funny bit.

Old people should be heard but not seen. Young people should be seen, not heard.
You’re one of the most natural, great singers I’ve heard in a long time.
When developing countries go to the WTO and register their protest over things, they should be heard. Their views should be considered by the rich countries.
As for me, even though I have been accused of anti-Semitism countless times, no one has ever heard me make anti-Semitic statements or engage in anti-Semitic behavior.
I have never heard anyone say This is it. I know right now is the high point of my life. It will never get any better. Only in retrospect do we recognize the best times and of course then it is too late.
Cartoonist was the weirdest name I finally let myself have. I would never say it. When I heard it I silently thought, what an awful word.
I just found out last week – my sister told me – that my father had some Beatles records. So I must have heard them quite a bit, but it never registered, really. Now I listen to them with new ears.
I have never yet heard of a murderer who was not afraid of a ghost.
When people say, ‘I don’t see you enough,’ well just because you don’t see me don’t mean I don’t exist, or just ’cause you haven’t heard me don’t mean I haven’t been making noise. But if I keep making noise, you’ll pick up.
Man, you don’t know how I felt that afternoon when I heard that voice and it was my own voice.
If I had grown up in any place but New Orleans, I don’t think my career would have taken off. I wouldn’t have heard the music that was around this town. There was so much going on when I was a kid.

When I first heard ‘Pearly Gates‘ by Mobb Deep and 50 Cent growing up, the rapper Prodigy had a line about wanting to beat Jesus up. I wasn’t religious, but I’d never been introduced to something like that. I was scared and mad, but then I asked why I felt like that.
He asked my girlfriend if we could come over and sing some of the songs that we had written, which we did. After he heard the songs, he said that he knew someone in the record business by the name of Bob Shad.

I have not heard that even the New York abortion has done very much in the States where it has been enacted.
There’s been a big buzz about the Charlatans in the last couple of years. I’ve heard the word Charlatans more in the last few years than I’d heard it for the previous 20 years. People would interview me for years and never even mention the Charlatans.
An apology for the devil: it must be remembered that we have heard one side of the case. God has written all the books.
I’ve heard that the true love of country music is alive and well. That gives me so much hope and so much happiness.

Women have a voice; they’re empowered, and they’re heard.
I always supported gay issues, but I never understood transgender issues. But after I heard Bruce Jenner speak so honestly, so sincerely, and so relatably, I totally got it. I totally understood what he was saying – it was so compelling.

The great medley of Oregon and California emigrants, at their camps around Independence, had heard reports that several additional parties were on the point of setting out from St. Joseph‘s farther to the northward.
I don’t live in this soul music bubble. I love Young Thug, Drake, Kendrick Lamar. I even heard that Kendrick was a fan of my music. Hopefully there’s a door open for us to do music together. He’s one of my favorite artists. I love Jazmine Sullivan, Lianne la Havas, Usher, Ginuwine. It goes further than classic soul.
You always get that energy, you just want to be heard, to go out, do your thing and show people that we have just as much talent here as everywhere else.

Matthew being a constant attendant on our Lord, his history is an account of what he saw and heard; and, being influenced by the Holy Spirit, his history is entitled to the utmost degree of credibility.

In interviews with dozens of black advisers, friends, donors and allies, few said they had ever heard Mr. Obama muse on the experience of being the first black president of the United States, a role in which every day he renders what was once extraordinary almost ordinary.

There will always be another group of kids going to college, drinking beer, and discovering that movie. Many of them have never even heard of SCTV.
You can hear some artists, hear five of their albums and still have no idea who they are. But if you’ve heard most of what I’ve recorded, you know me. You go from ‘Honesty’ to ‘Going Through Hell’ – you can listen to the hits, and they pretty much reflect who I am. ‘Take a Back Road’ is the same thing.
I’ve often cringed when I heard myself described as a jazz singer. I’ve always thought of myself as a jazz vocalist.
I never seen no shootin’. I only know what I heard and what I read. I had no involvement.
Good listeners have a huge advantage. For one, when they engage in conversation, they make people ‘feel’ heard. They ‘feel’ that someone really understands their wants, needs and desires. And for good reason; a good listener does care to understand.
I’m not one of these guys who says, Now I’m on a really hot show, better quit soon before I get labeled. That’s the most ridiculous notion I’d ever heard.

Today, comics is one of the very few forms of mass communication in which individual voices still have a chance to be heard.
Lucknow, as far as I have heard, is always known for its culture, literature and poetry. So it has set a cultural benchmark for the entire country.
You have doubtless heard, my dear mother, the misfortune of Madame de Chartres, whose child is born dead. But I would rather have even that, terrible as it is, than be as I am without hope of any children.
The government doesn’t really prosecute for polygamy anymore, but a lot of the arrests are of groups supporting themselves through welfare scams or for child abuse. So that was all I’d really heard about polygamists.
When I first heard from my manager, who asked me, ‘There’s this Disney ‘Mulan,’ do you want to audition for it?’ I’d heard that so many people were auditioning. So, I asked myself what I could bring.
Judas heard all Christ’s sermons.
They’ve got this house style which is writer driven. I heard of one person who sent his script in, and Karen Berger said there weren’t enough words in it. Put some more in.

Well, before we met I had heard and seen him sing so I knew he was good.

How do I keep young? Haven’t you heard? I sleep every night in the deep freezer!
When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the Worldwide Web… Now even my cat has its own page.
I’ve found cinnamon to be very effective for lowering the glycemic response to meals. People have heard that before, but I didn’t realize how profound it could be until I did the actual testing with continuous glucose monitors. And I tested all different varieties and species of cinnamon from Ceylon to Saigon.
I only hope that He will let me preach to those who have never heard that name Jesus. What else is worthwhile in this life? I have heard of nothing better. ‘Lord, send me!’
At screenings for ‘Black in America,’ I’ve heard people say, ‘Well you know, I never thought you were black until you did Katrina, and then I thought you were black.’
Country music is just country. It’s going to shift around a little bit, doing some different instrumentations, different production styles. But it will always come back to what you heard at the Opry. Nobody wants it to change.
I ain’t heard anyone play like I do in my band and I am very happy about that.
Country is not what you heard on the Grammys.
I was about nine years old when I first heard Wu-Tang’s ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ Before that, I didn’t know anything about rap or hip-hop. I was just into Korean pop.
The more English is heard in the world, the more gratifying it seems to speak French, and above all to know the culture of our country. They find a kind of French social grace in the language and culture.
Well, in the sense that we do not tour or record together anymore – then I suppose not. But if our old recordings get heard more we shall be delighted.
Nothing seems to come up to your expectations. But nothing I had heard about Hollywood was enough.
It was Max Perutz who inspired me to go into structural biology when he gave a lecture at Harvard in 1963. As soon as I heard him talk, I decided that this is what I want to do.
Diversity requires commitment. Achieving the superior performance diversity can produce needs further action – most notably, a commitment to develop a culture of inclusion. People do not just need to be different, they need to be fully involved and feel their voices are heard.
I grew up doing musical theatre in Orlando, Florida. When I was 14, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time – a deliveryman heard me singing and offered to deliver my demo tape to Sony Music. I was just really lucky.
I’ve heard people say all our music sounds the same, but it’s usually just the people who don’t like us who say it.
The biggest thing is to let your voice be heard, let your story be heard.
In the middle 1940s… I heard everyone live. Painting, the theater; everything was happening. It was an exciting time when New York was the place to be.
There haven’t been a lot of superhero movies with female leads, and there have been even fewer – if any – that were truly funny. I heard Ant-Man was, but I haven’t seen that yet. So, that would be my goal, my dream – to be a super-heroine who’s not afraid to be feminine and also not afraid to make people laugh.
It’s been a long haul. It may seem to some people that have never heard of me, ‘Oh she just popped up on the scene,’ but I’ve been working on this for some time.
I’ll never forget the first time I heard Johann Sebastian Bach‘s ‘Partita in E Major’ for violin. It was in a late-1980s television commercial, of all things. As a young violinist at the time, it enchanted me – it was so pure, precise, and unadorned.
The first time I heard Johnny play at the Fillmore East, I wasn’t really impressed. He had come on the scene with everybody telling me how great he was, and I didn’t hear it.
We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored.

The way I heard about The American Giving Awards was from the people that I work with. My publicist and I had a conversation a while back about wanting to really get involved more and more. We’ve been working with the National Council for Adoption with the children’s home that I was adopted from called Holston Home.
Before, I could meet and greet all my fans one by one, but now, it’s hard to remember all of their names. And my actions can sometimes cause misunderstandings. If I bow to one side, I’ve heard people from the other side ask why I didn’t bow there.
Too often, politics is like bad theater. The mass media simplifies stories and personalities into their most basic, digestible and familiar bits. Listeners prefer songs they have heard before, after all.
Fathers should be neither seen nor heard. That is the only proper basis for family life.
I have often heard that the novel is dead. But I see novels produced, I don’t know how many a week, in France. I have the impression it’s carrying along quite well.
The music that I chose during my life, it wasn’t arbitrary. It was all in my family home when I was growing up. I never tried to record anything I hadn’t heard before the age of 10. Otherwise, I couldn’t do it authentically.
When I first heard Korn, they blew me away, and I’ve been a fan ever since.
When I was growing up, I never heard the word ‘racism.’ It was only in Paris I encountered that.

I was first influenced by a friend in fifth grade when he brought a Walkman to school and was listening to ‘Paradise City’ by Guns ‘N Roses, which he had concealed within his hoodie. He put the headphones over my ears and I was completely blown away by what I heard. I’ll never forget that.
My whole life, I’ve been called ‘Just a pretty face,’ or, ‘You’ll never amount to anything, you don’t really have anything to offer, but your looks.’ It’s never defined who I am, I mean, I’ve heard it my whole life, it’s nothing new.
I believe there’s other forms of intelligence in the universe. I’ve seen and heard some pretty convincing UFO stuff. Besides, if we’re the most intelligent things in the universe… well, that’s just depressing.
New York City is home to so many people from so many places and the uniqueness of it is that you never feel a foreigner. English is almost hardly ever heard in the subway. In fact, it’s weird.
I realized by using the high notes of the chords as a melodic line, and by the right harmonic progression, I could play what I heard inside me. That’s when I was born.
I’ve heard rumors that the Petersons are writing a book. It will be very interesting to see what they have to say, but I don’t know anything about the Rochas.
I never heard Jack Nicklaus say, ‘I’m a great player,’ or Tiger Woods, as a matter of fact. They just get out and do it. And I think that’s far more appealing… than talking about how good you are.
Watch MTV and you can see what the music scene is like in England. The Spice Girls? Not a lot of creativity in the commercial area. There are still great musicians in England, but not a lot being heard that much.

The first time I heard ‘Crazy Train,’ I was crashed out in bed, definitely not wanting to get up and go to school, when my brother Vinnie came in and cranked it up.

I’m certainly hoping that all the recommendations that we have heard will be implemented.

I committed to directing ‘Catch Me If You Can’ not because of the divorce component, but principally because Frank Abagnale did things that were the most astonishing scams I had ever heard.
Before I ever heard about ’60 Minutes,’ I had been a writer, a columnist for ‘Life’ magazine and for ‘Newsweek’ – that was about as high as you could get in column writing. I care about my writing. I’m not a quack-quack TV journalist.
An activist is someone who makes an effort to see problems that are not being addressed and then makes an effort to make their voice heard. Sometimes there are so many things that it’s almost impossible to make your voice heard in every area, but you can sure try.
I can’t imagine how hard it must be to invest in a community… when you don’t feel heard and when you don’t feel seen.

I was about twenty and the Beatles were meditating and I heard about it and they had a center in New York and I came to the center and I learned about it.
When I heard the word ‘cancer,’ I was in bits. I panicked, I think everyone does, it was very scary, horrible. Thankfully, the melanoma does not appear to have spread. They’ll continue to monitor me, I’ve got scars on my face, on my back. Good thing I was never worried about my good looks.
I’ve never heard Daft Punk; I’ve never heard a track of theirs in my life. They’re the two guys with motorcycle helmets on?
I mean, that’s another big surprise of the show, is that I see sixteen year old people who recognize me and they’re honest, for-real fans of the show. And it goes down to nine months. I mean, I’ve heard of nine month to year-old children who are watching the show.

My whole life, I heard, ‘Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg.’ It’s all I heard throughout elementary school.
I’ve heard expressions like, ‘Are you good in bed?’ What does that even mean? For me, good in bed means sleeping seven hours. Undisturbed! If I get eight hours, that means I’m amazing!
The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.

When I saw the movie, I said, I wish I had heard the music. I would have ridden the horse differently.

My parents were in high school and college in the ’80s, so let’s just say I’ve heard some stuff, man. We listen to a lot of music and watch lots of great films, but the real context they provide from that era is about politics.
The first time I heard a Billie Holiday record, I thought, ‘What’s so great about Billie Holiday?’
My grandfather, Arthur Baskerville, he played and still plays a little bit piano and trombone, and so when I was a kid, I always heard jazz around the house, but I also went to his gigs, whether it be a Saturday brunch in my hometown Columbus, Ohio.

When have you ever heard of a cantor or any artist turning anyone down when he is strongly urged to perform?
I saw The Sound of Music when I was 10 and thought that it was the most beautiful singing I had ever heard.

I think they could of recast the children, I heard of people wanting to do something like that. That would be a nice little show to do but you know that show was of the 80’s, I don’t think the audience mind set is in that direction any longer.
You can tell on-stage when a joke’s starting to lose its pop. It doesn’t mean people don’t want to hear it anymore; it means I don’t want to do it anymore. Because I want to move on to something that has a knee-jerk reaction just like you get when you tell somebody a joke that they’ve never heard.
I work with youth offenders in LA, I’ve heard them speak and see how music manipulates them.

One of the bibles of my youth was ‘Birds of the West Indies,’ by James Bond, a well-known ornithologist, and when I was casting about for a name for my protagonist I thought, ‘My God, that’s the dullest name I’ve ever heard,’ so I appropriated it. Now the dullest name in the world has become an exciting one.
I’ve heard people say in the U.N. community among mediators they don’t like women as mediators because they’re too quick to compromise.

My mother was a churchgoing lady, so I always heard about God at home.
When I heard Bjork’s debut, that was when I first realized that I could be a singer, even with my unusual voice.
One motivation for the ‘Soul Train’ awards was the grumbling that all of us in the industry have heard about the way black music tends to be viewed as a secondary phenomenon by the other awards shows.

I was trying to do Billie Holiday, because she was the voice to be heard at that time.

I first fell in love with music when I was a little boy. When I first heard music, I felt the beauty in it. Then, being able to tap along on a table top and box was great, but my favorite thing to do was to watch records spin. I would almost get hypnotized by it. These things are what drew me in initially.

I think its so cool that you can pick up the guitar and create something that didn’t exist 5 minutes ago. You can write something that no ones ever heard before. You have music at your fingertips.
