The point is that when I see a sunset or a waterfall or something, for a split second it’s so great, because for a little bit I’m out of my brain, and it’s got nothing to do with me.

In any authoritarian society, the possessor of power dictates, and if you try and step outside, he will come after you.

106
When I was at MIT, they had a beta test of Mosaic, the first popular browser. I remember looking at it, and there was a weather map or something. Now, in fairness to me, there weren’t any websites then. But I remember saying, ‘This is stupid – what’s the point?’ Now, of course, it’s obvious.

Hypatia
136

At one point, I recognized that Warren Buffett, though he had every advantage in learning from Ben Graham, did not copy Ben Graham but, rather, set out on his own path and ran money his way, by his own rules… I also immediately internalized the idea that no school could teach someone how to be a great investor.

A common misperception of me is… that I am a tough, rough northerner, which I suppose I am really. But I’m pretty mild-mannered most of the time. It’s the parts that you play I guess. I don’t mind it. I’m not a tough guy. I’d like to act as a fair, easy-going, kind man at some point.
177
Most people fall upon tough times at some point.
178
I don’t say I create. I copy, of course. I’ve never been interested in the point of view of the tailor or creator. Fashion is a visual impression. This is why I often refuse the name of fashion designer. It’s a superficial, stupid job. The social-psychological aspect is more interesting.
Franco Moschino
179
One of the problems with the Security Council is that there are vetoes, and they do not allow us to do what might be justified from the point of view of sanctions.
180
People talk about the conscience, but it seems to me one must just bring it up to a certain point and leave it there. You can let your conscience alone if you’re nice to the second housemaid.
181
Kendrick Lamar is 10-times the rapper I am, but I just feel I’m the best at getting my own point across.
182
Film critics said I gave a voice to the fear we all have: that we’ll reach a certain point in our lives, look around and realize that all the things we said we’d do and become will never come to be – and that we’re ordinary.
183
My approach to beauty is all about moods. If you want to feel sexy, if you want to feel feminine or, I don’t know, boyish – it’s all about how you feel at that point in time. My mood changes.
184
I should like to think that we’ll find peace on this Earth at some point and come to a collective consciousness of compassion for each other, where we say, ‘Enough! Let us live as one!’
185
My point was very simple, and it was that it is absolutely absurd for the United States of America to continue to urge us further down the line towards a federal superstate when the U.S. has not even signed up to the U.N. Convention on Human Rights.
186
I enjoy it; my experiences abroad have taught me the importance of an open mind and have given me a willingness to wander off the beaten path – not only to keep life interesting, but also to understand in a meaningful way that things do not look the same from every vantage point.
187
I’ve won; I’ve lost. I’m at the point where I do what I believe in and, win or lose, believe in what I do.
188
The optimum amount of sugar in a product became known as the ‘bliss point.’ Food inventors and scientists spend a huge amount of time formulating the perfect amount of sugar that will send us over the moon and send products flying off the shelves.
189
When I was a kid, I thought I would be an entrepreneur and maybe at some point go into law school.
190
My wardrobe for ‘Suits‘ isn’t like ‘Working Girl’ – dressing for work doesn’t have to be so on-the-nose these days. The key is to have your own point of view attached to it. Personally, I love cropped pants in vegan leather, a great fitted blazer, and a button-down.
191
Work less than you think you should. It took me a while to realise there was a point each day when my creativity ran out and I was just producing words – usually lousy ones – for their own sake. And nap: it helps to refresh the brain, at least mine.
192
You get to the point where you’re like, ‘I’m just doing me, and if people don’t like it, then it is what it is.’
193
People don’t really understand, but having people stare, and point, and take pictures, even if it is in a positive framework, is quite isolating; there’s no two ways about it. You feel a little bit, you know, freakish.
194
I’ve always believed that no officer‘s life, regardless of rank, is of such great value to his country that he should seek safety in the rearOfficers should be forward with their men at the point of impact.
Chesty Puller
195
See things from the boy’s point of view.
196
I’ve learned over the years that people are human and have mood swings, regardless of how talented they are. Today, I’m looking at life from a realistic point of view instead of the way I would want things to be.
Otis Williams
197
The attitude that nature is chaotic and that the artist puts order into it is a very absurd point of view, I think. All that we can hope for is to put some order into ourselves.
Willem de Kooning
198
Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.
199
The point of opera is that people are moved by the emotions and music.
200
The point – the power to hurt – of all figures lies in the truthfulness of their application.
201
There’s a moment when you come to a certain point, and if you make the leap you get to the big leagues. But if you back away, you get stuck.
202
While acting in ‘W,’ my worries about the way I act settled down. I also discovered another side of myself. It was a turning point.
Lee Jong-suk
203
The struggle isn’t just about being straight or gay or transgender – it’s a human struggle. That’s always really been my kind of starting point: If you’re out there and you’re odd, come over to my house.
204
A sociopath is not just someone who doesn’t care about human emotion. They’re someone who understands people to the point that they can manipulate them to an extraordinary degree.
205
I vividly remember a conversation I had many years ago in 1974, which marked a turning point in my leadership journey. I was sitting at a Holiday Inn with my friend, Kurt Campmeyer, when he asked me if I had a personal growth plan. I didn’t. In fact, I didn’t even know you were supposed to have one.
206
A stair not worn hollow by footsteps is, regarded from its own point of view, only a boring something made of wood.
207
The definition of being a feminist is equality, and if you’re not a feminist at this point, then what are you really promoting?
208
The whole point of corporate mascots is to be distinctive. No one in his right mind would ever confuse the Hamburglar with Mayor McCheese.
Gene Weingarten
209
It’s not that Good doesn’t triumph over Evil, it’s that the point spread is too small.
Bob Thaves
210
If the individual, or heretic, gets hold of some essential truth, or sees some error in the system being practiced, he commits so many marginal errors himself that he is worn out before he can establish his point.
211
You will be courteous to your elders who have explored to the point from which you may advance; and helpful to your juniors who will progress farther by reason of your labors.
Abbott L. Lowell
212
There is no question that climate change is happening; the only arguable point is what part humans are playing in it.
213
At some point in time, we’re going to have to stop addressing the kneeling, and we’re going to have to start addressing what led Colin Kaepernick to kneel. That’s the issue that nobody wants to talk about.
214
Learn to adjust yourself to the conditions you have to endure, but make a point of trying to alter or correct conditions so that they are most favorable to you.
William Frederick Book
215
Winning is fun… Sure. But winning is not the point. Wanting to win is the point. Not giving up is the point. Never letting up is the point. Never being satisfied with what you’ve done is the point.
Pat Summitt
216
Empathy is the starting point for creating a community and taking action. It’s the impetus for creating change.
Max Carver
217
I was never that much a focus of interest that I became a ‘thing’ at an earlier point in my career. I’m aware of having become a ‘thing’ now, which doesn’t give me a lot of pleasure.
218
The turning point was when I hit my 30th birthday. I thought, if really want to write, it’s time to start. I picked up the book How to Write a Novel in 90 Days. The author said to just write three pages a day, and I figured, I can do this. I never got past Page 3 of that book.
219
My dad is always there for me, and no matter how busy, he always makes it a point to answer my calls. I think he knows what is best for me better than me and is very involved in planning my career. Feel blessed to have a dad like him.
220
When I first left Iran at the age of 13, Iran had become such a shining star – it was the point to which all my desires and dreams returned.
221
There’s no point in treating a currency like a commodity, devaluing it artificially and causing a lot of poverty among poor countries.
222
All of us at some point have been coached by a male cricketer. I strongly believe that they get a lot of intensity into the training sessions. They are very hard taskmasters.
223
And sometimes you can make your point better with comedy than you can through shouting about it.
224
History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be.
225
People are pretty because they’re nice, and they care about other people, and they have a good heart. That’s what makes you pretty, and I didn’t know that at one point in my life.
226
When you happy, you get locked in sleep. You get sleepy happy. I always wanna be on point. I always wanna be aware.
227
At some point, life starts to pass you by and becomes about avoidance. I want to stay clear from that situation, because I don’t like that.
228
The point of living and of being an optimist is to be foolish enough to believe the best is yet to come.
229
From the boys’ point of view, scouting puts them into fraternity-gangs, which is their natural organisation, whether for games, mischief, or loafing; it gives them a smart dress and equipments; it appeals to their imagination and romance; and it engages them in an active, open-air life.
230
There’s a difference between being a comic and a comedian. A comic is a guy who says funny things, and a comedian is a guy who says things funny, and he has a style and point of view that will last much longer.
Milton Berle
231
I’m really not interested in acting as a facade, I’m interested in it as an emotional expression and as a transcendent experience for an individual. I find that a lot of people, a lot of young actors, haven‘t gotten to the point where they’re comfortable being stripped down. They’re still interested in ornate jackets.
232
Hope is not a resting place but a starting point – a cactus, not a cushion.
233
Surely the whole point of writing your own life story is to be as honest as you possibly can, revealing everything about yourself that is most private and probably most interesting for that very reason.
Judith Krantz
234
At some point, you got to stop caring about people’s expectations and care only about your expectations of yourself.
235
There could be no fairer destiny for any physical theory than that it should point the way to a more comprehensive theory in which it lives on as a limiting case.
236
I think we’re getting to the point where everyone’s getting fat and everyone’s getting allergic, or claims to be allergic to something and people can’t walk from their front door to their car without a bottle of water in their hand because they have to hydrate every three and half steps.
237
If you’re not willing to put in the hard work, to endure and fail, there’s no point. You win only if you’re willing to do whatever it takes.
238
If you want to grow a giant redwood, you need to make sure the seeds are ok, nurture the sapling, and work out what might potentially stop it from growing all the way along. Anything that breaks it at any point stops that growth.
239
The moment that changed me for ever was the moment my first child was born. I was happy, filled with hope, and thought, ‘Now I understand the whole point of work, of life, of love.’
240
In a way, J.F.K. was the high point of the American dream. In order to go to the moon and back, all we did was say we could – and we did.
241
I felt deep within me that the highest point a man can attain is not Knowledge or Virtue or Goodness or Victory but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe!
242
Everybody has a right to be defended, and every lawyer has a duty to defend people accused. And my office is to defend him, to discuss the accusation point by point, as I think this is a normal step in a democracy.
Jacques Verges
243
All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
Galileo Galilei
244
I guess there was a little bit of a slight rebellion, maybe a little bit of a renegade desire that made me realize at some point in my adolescence that I really liked pictures that told stories of things – genre paintings, historical paintings – the sort of derivatives we get in contemporary society.
245
The starting point of sanctification is the filthiness, corruption, or stain of sin.
246
I used to spray tan a lot when I was a teenager. The last time I got spray-tanned was for the Golden Globes. And I was like, ‘I love spray-tanning so much.’ I still really like it. But it definitely makes me look like I have leprosy, after a point.
247
And so, I mean, he declared war right there and then in so many words and Alex says later in the book, nobody in the White House from that point on had any doubt that we were going to bomb the mainland of Asia.
248
The line ‘Take it to the limit’ was to keep trying before you reach a point in your life where you feel you’ve done everything and seen everything – sort of feeling, you know, part of getting old.
249
I wrote the book because I wanted to be able to share some things that I had learned and as pompous as that may sound, as you get to a certain point in life, you figure so what am I doing?
250
I approach video games the same way I approach theatre, filmmaking, poetry, or painting. I wish more people would take that point of view. It would help the industry to move on.
251
The great defense against the air menace is to attack the enemy’s aircraft as near as possible to their point of departure.
252
I’ve come to a point in my career where it doesn’t matter if I dribble or nutmeg someone. The only thing that matters is whether I was decisive, did I put the ball in the back of the net today, and did it help the team win.
253
Casting sometimes is fate and destiny more than skill and talent, from a director’s point of view.
254
My point is there’s a hidden Scotland in anyone who speaks the Northern Ireland speech. It’s a terrific complicating factor, not just in Northern Ireland, but Ireland generally.
255
I do Thai boxing Mondays, jujitsu Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Wednesdays I do boxing with Mark – he was a world champion at one point. I absolutely love it. I actually have a punching bag outside in my garden. I’m obsessed with working out. I eat like a pig, so it kind of makes up for that.
256
It is possible that the digital world may change the need for physical branches. We will continue to add branches incrementally, but we will reach a point – whether it is 1,500, 1,800 or 2,000 branches – where we will say enough is enough.
257
There is a point at which even justice does injury.
258
I’ve had everything pierced at some point.
259
Sometimes you’re doing really well, then, after three or four years, everything inexplicably crashes like a house of cards and you have to rebuild it. It’s not like you get to a point where you’re all right for the rest of your life.
260
I worked in television; I’m the Failed Pilot Queen, I’ve done so many television shows, pilots, theater … when you do it for so long, I’m telling you, you get to the point where it becomes varied because you take what’s available for a number of reasons. It’s just an occupational hazard.
261
Nothing’s beautiful from every point of view.
262
Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.
263
Robotics has already made significant inroads in electronics assembly, with sewing trades – traditionally many countries’ first entry point to the global trading system – likely to come next.
264
Nihilism in American comedy came along way before ‘The Simpsons.’ There was a fairly nihilistic point of view to ‘Saturday Night Live,’ for instance, back in the beginning, and a lot of really dark comedy had a really anti-sentimental take on life.
265
The starting point for energy security today as it has always been is diversification of supplies and sources.
266
I have zero interest in performing in films to try to convey any kind of message. My job is to be entertaining. There’s a very different point of view about messages in films in Europe than there is in the States. Audiences rebel because they feel that they are being preached to.
267
The only point in making money is, you can tell some big shot where to go.
Humphrey Bogart
268
What’s the point of staying sober?
Oliver Reed
269
The true artist is not proud: he unfortunately sees that art has no limits; he feels darkly how far he is from the goal, and though he may be admired by others, he is sad not to have reached that point to which his better genius only appears as a distant, guiding sun.
270
I felt really sorry for Oliver Kahn. Up to that point he had made lots of saves for the German team. Of course he could have caught the ball but it just happened. It was bad luck. In that situation, you need to be very strong psychologically to carry on.
271
I do believe in God. But you won’t find me visiting temples every now and then. I believe in self-realization. Peace of mind matters a lot to me. What’s the point in doing something just for the sake of it? I’d rather do something I like doing as long as I’m being true to myself.
272
My view is regardless of whether you think prohibiting abortion is good or whether you think prohibiting abortion is bad, regardless of how you come out on that, my only point is the Constitution does not say anything about it. It leaves it up to democratic choice.
273
Our problem, from the point of view of psychology and from the point of view of genetic epistemology, is to explain how the transition is made from a lower level of knowledge to a level that is judged to be higher.
274
You can point any kind of laser at my face, but I don’t think Botox is for me. I think it is bad. People who have too much, they look like their faces are full of candles – a shiny, shiny face.
275
I just believe as a Christian, we are to show love; we are to show compassion to people, not to point the finger, not to do this, but to do this – to love them, to welcome them, to embrace them.
276
For the most part I excel as being the bad guy, and that’s definitely a strong point for me.
277
Be kind, don’t judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation.
278
I just want to make sure when I have kids, I can spend time with them. That’s the whole point.
279
My pessimism extends to the point of even suspecting the sincerity of other pessimists.
280
Part of why I like watercolor is that mistakes are visible, and you can’t really repair much. It has to look easy. When it comes out, it looks easy, but to get to that point takes a lot of doing.
281
It comes to a point where a lot of people don’t know if I’m a man or a woman. I find it quite a compliment.
282
Failure at some point in your life is inevitable, but giving up is unforgivable.
283
I am extremely content in my life – sometimes to the point where I really should find something to moan about!
284
I’m very honest – brutally honest. I always look at things from their point of view as well as mine. And I know when to walk away.
285
Truth is a point of view, but authenticity can’t be faked.
286
You have freedom, so you have to make choices – and at the point when I make a choice, the building starts to look like a Frank Gehry building. It’s a signature.
287
When we are at the worst times of our lives, when we are battling with something, or struggles, whatever it may be, when we are at our highest point as well, when things are going really well, we want somebody to comfort us and be there for us and to say, ‘Well done.’ That’s Jesus!
288
All I can tell you really is if you get to the point where someone is telling you that you are not great or not good enough, just follow your heart and don’t let anybody crush your dream.
289
From a linguistic point of view, you can’t really take much objection to the notion that a show is a show is a show.
290
If you’re watching a comedian on television and he’s making a political point, I would say he’s gotten too serious.
291
Votes are like trees, if you are trying to build a forest. If you have more trees than you have forests, then at that point the pollsters will probably say you will win.
292
The Muse should be a trusted destination for answers. A hand when you need one. Someone to talk you through tough decisions or situations. A starting point.
293
I do have a close circle of friends and I am very fortunate to have them as friends. I feel very close to them I think friends are everything in life after your family. You come across lots of people all the time but you only make very few friends and you have to be true to them otherwise what’s the point in life?
294
That’s how life is. All eyes on you, and all things point to you. Once things don’t go well, fingers going to point.
Chris Gayle
295
From my point of view, God is the light that illuminates the darkness, even if it does not dissolve it, and a spark of divine light is within each of us.
296
The real leader has no need to lead – he is content to point the way.
297
Before we really started writing our own songs in the James Gang, we’d play covers, and then, in the middle of them, we’d go for a jam for four or five minutes. At some point, we had six or seven of those sections, and we didn’t need to cover other people’s songs anymore.
298
A simple rule in dealing with those who are hard to get along with is to remember that this person is striving to assert his superiority; and you must deal with him from that point of view.
299
I believe that if you work hard and you never get to enjoy it then what’s the point. You can’t take any of this with you, the money or nothing. The only thing you can take is experiences, memories and good times, so I like to get amongst it as much as I can.
300
Weight gain can happen at any point in time, and it is something that you are dealing with anyway, and it is OK. It is ridiculous to have this dictate your very being because I have always said that it is not the outside that defines who you are.
301
But if two’s company, three’s a crowd – and that demands the omniscient point of view.
Arthur Herzog
302
I look for strong people. I don’t like people who’ll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue and disagree and have a point of view that’s reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to ‘The Standard.’
303
The whole point of getting things done is knowing what to leave undone.
Oswald Chambers
304
The reason I do this job is because I started to be a painter. Making money in art was difficult. The easiest way to make money was to use art for some other reason. One of the easiest and most interesting from an economic point of view was fashion. Fashion pays.
Franco Moschino
305
True adulthood occurs the moment we grasp that the people who raised us do not exist solely for our comfort and reassurance. From that point on, the steady stream of unconditional love and support we’ve expected from them all our lives has to flow both ways.
306
God bless IVF because it’s never too late to conceive any more. However, having said that, I have to point out that going through IVF is a gruelling procedure; maybe that’s why only a woman can go through it!
307
For us as a firm, not only from a risk mitigation standpoint but also as a point of differentiation, it is incredibly important to get consistency and the very best individuals with the capabilities to do the very best job.
308
There is a simple rule here, a rule of legislation, a rule of business, a rule of life: beyond a certain point, complexity is fraud. You can apply that rule to left-wing social programs, but you can also apply that rule to credit derivatives, hedge funds, all the rest of it.
309
Winning is fun… Sure. But winning is not the point. Wanting to win is the point. Not giving up is the point. Never letting up is the point. Never being satisfied with what you’ve done is the point.
Pat Summitt
310
An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought.
311
Everybody has a breaking point. It’s tough to ignore the impulse to respond with anger.
312
I think that I was being much more uptight about those things before. I feel like I really don’t have to prove anything at this point other than what I’m doing.
Diana Krall
313
Whether you live in a city or a small town, and whether you drive a car, take the bus or ride a train, at some point in the day, everyone is a pedestrian.
314
The high point of my career was winning the Champions League. No one will ever erase that from my memory, in the same way that no one will ever erase the fact that I did it in a Manchester United shirt.
315
You just try to play tough and focus point for point. Sounds so boring, but it’s the right thing to do out there.
316
To see someone 70 years old with dyed black hair, you’re like, ‘Hmmm, I dunno. Is that a wrinkled teenager? What is that?’ So at some point, I’m going to have to stop doing this. It’s gonna look ridiculous. I don’t wanna look like Elvis Presley at 60 years old.
317
You know, when you make the show, honestly, it’s to entertain, but it’s to win. So what’s the point to make the show and lose actually?
318
There’s no point in saying anything but the truth.
319
There’s no point in doing an intelligent quiz with me sitting opposite Kerry Katona.
320
You can’t ever get to the point where you don’t think you can learn anything more.
321
If I told you what it takes to reach the highest high you’d laugh and say nothing that simple, but you’ve been told many times before messiah‘s point you to the door though no one’s got the guts to leave the temple.
322
From the naturalistic point of view, all men are equal. There are only two exceptions to this rule of naturalistic equality: geniuses and idiots.
323
No matter how closely you examine the water, glucose, and electrolyte salts in the human brain, you can’t find the point where these molecules became conscious.
324
At some point, I don’t want to have any obligation. And just chill out.
325
From the traditional point of view, I am not handsome.
Kim Woo-bin
326
Some praise me because I am a colored girl, and I don’t want that kind of praise. I had rather you would point out my defects, for that will teach me something.
Edmonia Lewis
327
Eventually, we reach the point where we start to realize that we are not going to find peace, contentment, happiness, strength, fearlessness – all of the things that in our heart of hearts we wish we had – outside of us.
328
I always have a point of view. It may not be right, but it’s my own.
329
I don’t think human beings learn anything without desperation. Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point, you ain’t interesting.
330
I had a tryout when I was, like, 19 and totally not prepared. I was 170 pounds with homemade gear. At that point, I realized how far I had to go to even get looked at. Then, when I was 22 or 23, I was much more prepared, and that second tryout went way better.
331
But there’s no point in looking back and saying I was unlucky.
332
In Judaism, the temple was the most holy site in the world. But if you extend that argument as a metaphor, and you say ‘The world is a holy place,’ and you’re treating this holy place like a money-lending psycho, then Jesus says, ‘This is hypocrisy!’ and he’d point it out and flip it over.
333
Vengeance is not the point; change is. But the trouble is that in most people’s minds the thought of victory and the thought of punishing the enemy coincide.
Barbara Deming
334
I’m at a point where there isn’t any wasted movement in the throwing motion. Everything is consistent and smooth. When I first got into the league, I held the ball really high. That was the standard in college, and it messed up my timing a little bit – the draw, bringing it back, then the release.
335
People do bad things in their lives. And those sort of things are forgivable. That’s half the point of having confession in church – you need to be able to fess up to what you’ve done.
336
If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.
337
Drugs shouldn’t be used for recreation although they can be, but ultimately the point of psychedelics is to put you in touch with the powers of the universe.
Ray Manzarek
338
People would say it’s very improbable that I’d make it to this point in my life. I made it here because I wasn’t discouraged. I worked hard to get here, took advantage of every opportunity that I had.
339
I used to bodyguard for Muhammad Ali, Leon Spinks, Sugar Ray Leonard. I used to bodyguard a lot of diamond merchants; I would travel with a suitcase full of diamonds and take them from point A to point B. My reputation grew because I was a professional. I did my job, and I was courteous – a no-nonsense guy.
340
There’s a road that runs through our humanity and it traverses political and partisan lines, and my job as a U.S. senator is to do everything I can to point to that road that connects our collective humanity and to push forward legislation that’s good for everybody.
341
Thus passing through the infinite varieties of space we reach the Divine space which is absolutely free from all dimensions and constitutes the meeting point of all infinities.
342
Can I remember exactly when I ‘lost’ my husband? Was it the moment when I had to start tying his shoelaces for him? Or when we stopped being able to laugh with each other? Looking back, that turning point is impossible to pinpoint. But then, that’s the nature of dementia.
Judy Parfitt
343
In the ’80s, it got to the point where we’d have shows with a hundred looks. You’d want to order a pizza before it was over!
344
I believe I am strong mentally. My breaking points might be bigger than most players. I think it’s because of the way I grew up with my two older brothers. They pushed my limits quite often – once every day, I think! I think that played a big role in my breaking point being bigger than most players. Not all players.
345
We can all be conned but at what point do we realize that we’re being conned and to what point do we allow ourselves to be conned?
346
Maybe it was the challenge of flight, the opportunity to fly, the competition of summer camp and the inspiration and discipline of West Point. I think all of those things helped me to develop a dedication and inspired me to get ahead.
347
The Spirit works through community. Somebody will have a stupid, screwy idea. That’s okay. The point of having creeds and confessions and traditions is to keep us in touch with the obvious errors.
348
I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.
349
I think that the point of being an architect is to help raise the experience of everyday living, even a little. Putting a window where people would really like one. Making sure a shaving mirror in a hotel bathroom is at the right angle. Making bureaucratic buildings that are somehow cheerful.
350
Like some kind of particularly tenacious vampire the short story refuses to die, and seems at this point in time to be a wonderful length for our generation.
351
My errors will point to thinking men the various roads, and will teach them the great art of treading on the brink of the precipice without falling into it.
352
I love to argue. I’ve always loved to argue. And I love to point out the weaknesses of the opposing arguments. It may well be that I’m something of a shin kicker. It may well be that I’m something of a contrarian.
353
When the Internet first launched, you had all these newspapers saying that the Internet was only used by bad people, to do bad things and what was the point of it. But the Internet changed everything, just like Bitcoin will.
354
I snack on sauteed peanuts, a whole fruit, lots of cheese – especially goat cheese – with multi-grain crackers and dark chocolate. These are my weaknesses. I make it a point to eat every two hours.
355
I love milk so much! I make a point of drinking a glass of milk every day. So now anyone who did those milk ads with the milk mustaches, they’re my heroes.
356
We’ve reached a point where people are actually afraid to talk about what they want to say, because somebody might be offended. We’ve got to get over this sensitivity and it keeps people from saying what they really believe.
357
You reach a point where you don’t work for money.
358
If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.
359
The point of theatre is transformation: to make an extraordinary event out of ordinary material right in front of an audience‘s eyes. Where the germ of the idea came from is pretty much irrelevant. What matters to every theatre maker I know is speaking clearly to the audience ‘right now.’
Lee Hall
360
I’ve reached a point in life where it’s no longer necessary to try to impress. If they like me the way I am, that’s good. If they don’t, that’s too bad.
361
At some point in the future – possibly the very near future – Britain will be hit by a deadly pandemic, and its impact could be utterly devastating.
362
Every man is more than just himself; he also represents the unique, the very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world’s phenomena intersect, only once in this way, and never again.
363
Even at my lowest point, when I’ve wanted to give up, I know that I have to believe in myself because I’m all that I have.
364
Remember that breath walking – as with any meditation technique – should not be pursued with a grim determination to ‘get it right.’ The point is to cultivate openness, relaxation and awareness, which can include awareness of your undisciplined, wandering mind.
365
A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding.
366
Once you’ve reached the point where you can pay rent, you can go to the vet and you can go to the grocery store, after that point it’s all the same. I don’t have the appetite for a decadent lifestyle.
Renee Zellweger
367
The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter – for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way.
368
At no point do I wish to be in conflict with any man or masculine thought. It doesn’t enter my consciousness. Art is anonymous. It’s not competitive with men. It’s a complementary contribution.
Barbara Hepworth
369
You know, from my point of view, I’m the luckiest cat on the planet.
370
At a certain point I’m going to want to have a family.
371
You’re always learning. The problem is, sometimes you stop and think you understand the world. This is not correct. The world is always moving. You never reach the point you can stop making an effort.
372
When you grow up by the sea, you spend a good deal of time looking at the horizon. You wonder what on Earth the waves might bring – and where the sea might deposit you – until one day you know you have lived between two places, the scene of arrival and the point of departure.
373
The point is not to take the world’s opinion as a guiding star but to go one’s way in life and working unerringly, neither depressed by failure nor seduced by applause.
374
You must get engaged with people who are far less privileged than you. I think you must devote your time if not your resources… Because it is very, very important from the point of view of the development of our country.
375
Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy.
376
‘The melancholy of all things done’ is the way Buzz once described his complete mental breakdown after returning from the moon. Booze. A couple of divorces. A psych ward. Broke. At one point he was selling cars.
377
Running alone is the toughest. You get to the point where you have to keep pushing yourself.
378
The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one.
379
Eventually you get to this point where you understand what you want to do and get across and sound like.
380
I think it’s important for service to be a part of your life instead of an option. It’s awesome to make it a point to do something that’s gonna make the world slightly better than you left it.
381
I wasn’t a point guard. I was a killer.
382
Precision, speed, unambiguity, knowledge of files, continuity, discretion, unity, strict subordination, reduction of friction and of material and personal costs – these are raised to the optimum point in the strictly bureaucratic administration.
383
I love to deer hunt and fish and drive down the back roads in my truck. All those things basically equal freedom to me – and not having to return that message or call from my record company or management. At some point, I need to recharge.
384
I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.
385
I don’t care half so much about making money as I do about making my point, and coming out ahead.
Cornelius Vanderbilt
386
The starting point of discovering who you are, your gifts, your talents, your dreams, is being comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal. Take long walks in the woods.
387
You go through life experiences. Each record captures a different turning point in my life.
388
Truth is a point of view, but authenticity can’t be faked.
389
I’m probably only going to make 10 movies, so I’m already planning on what I’m going to do after that. That’s why I’m counting them. I have two more left. I want to stop at a certain point. What I want to do, basically, is I want to write novels, and I want to write theatre, and I want to direct theatre.
390
Every genre succumbs to gentrification at some point- as equipment becomes cheaper, as crowds become younger, there seems to be a sheepish attitude towards producers – how they can follow a mundane, linear sound, and make money.
391
Soul is the central point of spiritual discipline.
Mahavira
392
My first job at General Motors was as a quality inspector on the assembly line. I was checking fits between hoods and fenders. I had a little scale and clipboard. At one point, I was probably examining 60 jobs an hour during an eight-hour shift. A job like that teaches you to value all the people who do a job like that.
393
When radium was discovered, no one knew that it would prove useful in hospitals. The work was one of pure science. And this is a proof that scientific work must not be considered from the point of view of the direct usefulness of it.
394
It’s like a novelist writing far out things. If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it’s off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent, I think.
395
Representation of the world, like the world itself, is the work of men; they describe it from their own point of view, which they confuse with the absolute truth.
396
There’s no point in burying a hatchet if you’re going to put up a marker on the site.
397
Any self-respecting entrepreneur has borrowed money from their mother at some point.
398
There should be a point to movies. Sure, you’re giving people a diversion from the cold world for a bit, but at the same time, you pass on some facts and rules and maybe a little bit of wisdom.
399
The shape and composition of the government is important. We haven’t reached a point where politics and economics have been totally divorced from each other.
400
People just expect you to show up, be a cartoon character of yourself, take your money and go home. But don’t screw up to the point where you’re gonna be out of the picture.
401
I think it’s important for little girls growing up, and young women, to have one in every walk of life. So from that point of view, I’m proud to be a role model!
402
Romantic love is mental illness. But it’s a pleasurable one. It’s a drug. It distorts reality, and that’s the point of it. It would be impossible to fall in love with someone that you really saw.
403
In the history of science, we often find that the study of some natural phenomenon has been the starting point in the development of a new branch of knowledge.
404
When I design and wonder what the point is, I think of someone having a bad time in their life. Maybe they are sad and they wake up and put on something I have made and it makes them feel just a bit better. So, in that sense, fashion is a little help in the life of a person. But only a little.
405
Ain’t no point in stopping or slowing down. Ain’t like no ‘A’ight, I’m done with this, now take a break,’ you just keep going.
King Von
406
I look forward to being older, when what you look like becomes less and less an issue and what you are is the point.
407
The point of revenge is not in the completion but in the process.
408
I feel really humbled and really grateful to have the opportunities that I’ve had over the past couple of years to work with some amazing people. I think, at this point, I just want to put my head down and grind and do honest work.
409
At a certain point in their existential experience, the oppressed feel an irresistible attraction toward the oppressor and his way of life. Sharing this way of life becomes an overpowering aspiration.
Paulo Freire
410
I haven’t had an easy life, but at some point, you have to take responsibility for yourself and shape who it is that you want to be. I have no time for moaners. I like to chase my dreams and surround myself with other people who are chasing their dreams, too.
411
It is very tough to make a short film. It’s like writing a short story, which is tougher than writing a novel. You can’t afford to faff around; you can’t indulge. You have to get to the point.
412
Every restaurant needs to have a point of view.
413
From the point of the view of the nation’s power, it was obvious that while we were fighting the Sino-Japanese war, every effort was to be made to avoid adding to our enemies and opening additional fronts.
414
I’ve found that when the market’s going down and you buy funds wisely, at some point in the future you will be happy. You won’t get there by reading ‘Now is the time to buy.’
Peter Lynch
415
I just don’t want to live like I used to. And at some point, I’m going to put a gag order on myself in terms of talking about the past. I’ve got to slam the door and deal with the present and the future.
416
I wanted to go to drama school, but when I got the part in ‘Falling,’ I got an agent, so it seemed a good idea to work. I always did a lot of singing and dancing, so I am glad it worked out that way. I would like to study stage acting at some point, though.
417
Competition has been shown to be useful up to a certain point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.
418
Once you make it to your point of making it, you’ll appreciate the struggle.
419
The sole purpose of a crown is to make anyone not wearing one feel like an insignificant pauper. They’re obscene to the point of satire.
420
What makes Superman a hero is not that he has power, but that he has the wisdom and the maturity to use the power wisely. From an acting point of view, that’s how I approached the part.
421
National diplomacy strategies are usually focused on promoting one’s interests against others’ interests. By emphasizing the global ‘we’ rather than the national ‘I’ in the climate change debate, COP 21 proved to be a case in point for a change of lenses.
422
When Americans come to London they usually say how much they love the history, the tradition, the splendid tumpty-tum of things whose very repetition has become their point.
423
At times, when I reach my saturation point, I go to some random place and throw my phone away.
424
You play against an opponent so much the numbers got to match at some point! I played against the Raiders six years straight pretty much. I played against them more than any team I’ve ever played.
425
Nothing’s beautiful from every point of view.
426
The closer a man approaches tragedy the more intense is his concentration of emotion upon the fixed point of his commitment, which is to say the closer he approaches what in life we call fanaticism.
427
Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
428
There comes a certain point in life when you have to stop blaming other people for how you feel or the misfortunes in your life. You can’t go through life obsessing about what might have been.
429
I used to be a drummer in a band, and I really loved playing the drums, so I look forward to the right opportunity to do that at some point. Maybe even on TV. Every single live performance I’m doing on TV, I want it to be different and unique.
430
The human eye uses the eyebrow as an anchor point for the rest of the face. This is why a woman can look truly stunning without any makeup but perfectly shaped, full eyebrows.
431
Winter testing is essential but there comes a point where you have had enough of all the rehearsals and the pretend racing. You just want to get down to the real action.
432
I grew up as a point guard, and as a point guard you learn how to navigate situations.
433
The point is that there is tremendous hypocrisy among the Christian right. And I think that Christian voters should start looking at global warming and extreme poverty as a religious issue that speaks to the culture of life.
434
On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.
435
The clear problem of the outlawing of insult is that too many things can be interpreted as such. Criticism, ridicule, sarcasm, merely stating an alternative point of view to the orthodoxy, can be interpreted as insult.
436
If you go to Tiananmen Square, or go to any public area in China, you will hear my music at some point.
437
Prisons are out of public sight, and most often out of mind. But the vast majority of prisoners will at some point leave jail and rejoin our communities, which is why what happens inside matters to us all.
438
I am someone who can’t hold on to negativity or hold on to grudges. I might feel something at a certain point, but I get tired after that. I don’t carry it with me. I forgive and forget very easily, and that’s the only way to be happy and peaceful.
439
But at the same time, I don’t let myself regret things to the point that I’m paralyzed.
440
The Church controlled so much in Ireland for so long. I’m not going to get into whether or not religion per se is a bad thing, but my point is the political aspect in Ireland was way out of kilter, and it wasn’t right.
441
The truth is an objective standard by which reality is measured; it’s God’s point of view on any subject.
442
There’s no point thinking about dying, because it’s going to happen anyway, isn’t it? I don’t waste my time worrying about that.
443
Keep going and keep believing and do what makes you feel good. And when you feel good and get to the point where no-one can take that from you, then that feeling will the best feeling.
NikkieTutorials
444
We live in this era that has benefited from the Industrial Revolution, and we live with a kind of luxury and plenty that even all but the poorest of Americans live with a kind of sensuousness that was unimagined by medieval kings. But in order to get to this point, a lot of people had to suffer in really terrible ways.
David Liss
445
If there’s no point, then there’s no point giving up.
446
The world has not yet reached the point which, in my view, is an essential condition for the survival of our human species: access by all the peoples to the material resources of this planet.
447
I am truly at my happiest not when I am writing an aria for an actor or making a grand political or social point. I am at my happiest when I’ve figured out a fun way for somebody to slip on a banana peel.
448
Men must live and create. Live to the point of tears.
449
If you can’t help me grow, there’s no point with you being in my life.
450
I find it really easy to write on the bass, because you kind of get straight to the point: you do lyrics and melody without thinking about decorating the song until after you’ve finished it.
451
The point of launching a maternity line, for me, was to do something different.
452
I was born into a Christian family and brought up in a Lutheran church. My faith has been the center point of my life, really, since I was a child, but at 16 years of age, I fully surrendered my life over to Christ. At that point, as a teenager, I began to grasp the concept of Christ’s true love and forgiveness.
453
I remember at one point being in fellowship, and everyone used to wear the fish symbol; it said you were a Christian. So I asked my father, ‘Dad, why don’t you wear that at work?’ And he said, ‘Your religion should be in your actions.’ He set a great, great example.
454
‘The English Patient‘ was a huge turning point in my career and my life; it became this huge thing. But the whole Oscar build-up got completely out of control; I spent more time talking about that film than I spent making it!
455
I grew up without a father, so I have to be on point for my kids.
456
An artist’s job is simply to take the mirror in front of your face and hold it there. It’s not to give you any answers. It is simply to take that mirror and point it at you.
457
The real leader has no need to lead – he is content to point the way.
458
Drag is pastiche and parody and satire. Drag queens are never meant to be stars. We make fun of stars. Drag queens are the people that ‘point’ at the star.
459
The point of Left-wing propaganda is to make us feel powerless.
460
It’s like a garden: Whatever you water the most will do the best. At some point, you decide whether you’ll water your career or your relationship more.
461
I play the way I do because it allows me to come up with the sickest sounds possible. That’s the point now isn’t it?
462
Better to be a strong man with a weak point, than to be a weak man without a strong point. A diamond with a flaw is more valuable that a brick without a flaw.
William J. H. Boetcker
463
Every time you log in to Facebook, every time you click on your News Feed, every time you Like a photo, every time you send anything via Messenger, you add another data point to the galaxy they already have regarding you and your behavior.
Jon Evans
464
Dealing with bullies when I was in sixth and seventh grade has made me a better football player, believe it or not. You have to come to a point when you’re like, ‘I’ve had enough, and I’m not going to be kicked around and pushed around anymore.’
465
What is the point of me changing? If I became another person, it would be bad. If I acted in a different way with my friends, they would not be happy. It’s important I stay the same.
466
I once joked in a book that there are three things you can’t do in life. You can’t beat the phone company, you can’t make a waiter see you until he is ready to see you, and you can’t go home again. Since the spring of 1995, I have been quietly, even gamely, reassessing point number three.
467
A great accomplishment shouldn’t be the end of the road, just the starting point for the next leap forward.
468
Pretend you’re a southern sheriff. Or Mae West. Or Donald Duck. Buy a western hat and walk around the house like a cowboy. The point of all this, of course, is to draw yourself out of your accustomed groove.
469
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There’s no point in being a damn fool about it.
470
A point makes you happy; an assist makes you and your teammate happy. An assist makes two people happy.
471
You spend enough time on set as an actor and it’s great when a director was at some point an actor or understands acting. They’re able to finesse performances out of you that a lot directors can’t get.
472
I was brought up bilingual, but there came a point where my mom went back to work and I got a white babysitter, so sadly I lost it. Now I can understand Spanish and put words together, but I don’t speak it fluently. I’m ashamed of that.
Michael Trevino
473
From a purely positivist point of view, man is the most mysterious and disconcerting of all the objects met with by science.
474
I really struggle with that feeling of helplessness. That’s why I really try to get my blogs, and even myself, to point to the positive and look at all the inspiring things that are happening.
475
I am sorry to say that there is too much point to the wisecrack that life is extinct on other planets because their scientists were more advanced than ours.
476
I don’t think there’s any point going for second or third.
477
Things have become devalued to the point where people don’t realize the repercussions, that they’re devaluing themselves. It could end up bringing about chaos, a lawless situation.
478
I’d love to do a really broad comedy at some point.
479
I always said if it gets to a point where I really want a child, I would adopt; kids are amazing, so I’m getting the selfish stuff out of my system so when I have them I can say, ‘Go, run. I have plenty of money, go play.’
480
It’s funny, because when you’re younger you’re in a rush to be 18 or 21 or whatever. But then you hit 30. And now, the days go by like hours. You think, 40, man, this could be the halfway point. It could be the three-quarters point, you know? Who knows?
481
Ours is a divine journey; therefore, this journey has neither a beginning nor an end… This journey has a goal, but it does not stop at any goal, for it has come to realise that today’s goal is only the starting point of tomorrow’s journey.
482
Some may remember, if you have good memories, that there used to be a concept in Anglo-American law called a presumption of innocence, innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Now that’s so deep in history that there’s no point even bringing it up, but it did once exist.
483
Design is about point of view, and there should be some sort of woman or lifestyle or attitude in one’s head as a designer.
484
I can sing very comfortably from my vantage point because a lot of the music was about a loss of innocence, there’s innocence contained in you but there’s also innocence in the process of being lost.
485
It is a point where our old models must be discarded and a new reality rules.
Vernor Vinge
486
The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.
487
Perhaps I am naive, but I believe that at this point in history, the greatest danger to our freedom and way of life comes from the reasonable fear of omniscient State powers kept in check by nothing more than policy documents.
488
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
489
I think the path is different for everybody. Go after the doors that are open to you. That has always been my motto getting into the music business. Do the things that seem to be good opportunities and work hard at it. Try to make good decisions and be nice. Hopefully all of that will pay off at some point.
490
In one case out of a hundred a point is excessively discussed because it is obscure; in the ninety-nine remaining it is obscure because it is excessively discussed.
491
The point of painting is not really deception or imitation.
492
It’s not just the effect of technology on the environment, on religion, on the economic structure, on society, on politics, etc. It’s that everything now exists in technology to the point where technology is the new and comprehensive host of nature of life.
493
If you want to have a relationship, at some point you have to let yourself get caught.
494
I’ll always be there because I’m a skilled professional actor. Whether or not I’ve any talent is beside the point.
495
When you’re that successful, things have a momentum, and at a certain point you can’t really tell whether you have created the momentum or it’s creating you.
496
Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement.
497
From the point of view of art, the butcher and the victim are equal as people. You need to see the people.
498
Don’t struggle about the struggle. In other words, life’s full of ups and downs. So if you’re struggling, don’t worry, everyone else has or will at some point.
499
I came into this music business at 26 years old. I was a fully developed man at that point. At that age, I didn’t have anything to prove.
500
I don’t want to be called a point guard, but I can’t stop it.
501
When there’s a status quo, usually what shakes everybody up is some sort of military confrontation, at which point we all come running and screaming to pick up the pieces.
502
Fanatics end by subverting their own argument. For instance, animal rights activists have some point, and many people feel sympathy with them. But animal rights fanatics do not have a point. They are the sort of people who threaten human beings in their effort to ‘defend’ animals.
Douglas Murray
503
What’s the point? My face, shall we say, looks lived in.
Ava Gardner
504
I am mean; I’m nasty at times. I don’t feel like talking to people at times. When I am in a bad mood and have had a really awful day, don’t come in my face because I am not tolerant and I am not a goddess; I can’t handle it after a point. I am going to get up, and I am going to scream, and I am going to say bad things to you.
505
In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.
506
History will point out some of the things I did wrong and some of the things I did right.
507
We’re born with success. It is only others who point out our failures, and what they attribute to us as failure.
508
We’re at a point now where we’ve built AI tools to detect when terrorists are trying to spread content, and 99 percent of the terrorist content that we take down, our systems flag before any human sees them or flags them for us.
509
We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.
Zhuangzi
510
I think so many times in our society we focus so much on just the end result; when we finally reach that point we realize that was never the true goal.
511
You can only get to a certain point when you feel confident with the simulator and it always changes when you get to the track and you actually drive it for real for the first time.
512
Guys are simple… women are not simple and they always assume that men must be just as complicated as they are, only way more mysterious. The whole point is guys are not thinking much. They are just what they appear to be. Tragically.
513
My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories.
514
The real point is that totalitarian regimes have claimed jurisdiction over the whole person, and the whole society, and they don’t at all believe that we should give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God that which is God’s.
515
We have birthdays and bar mitzvahs and funerals and weddings. And these ceremonies and rituals, I believe, really help us transition from one point to another.
516
If people and their manner of living were alike everywhere, there would not be much point in moving from one place to another.
Paul Bowles
517
I’ve never seen the point of the sea, except where it meets the land. The shore has a point. The sea has none.
518
At some point we have to stop and say, There’s Marlee, not, There’s the deaf actress.
519
To me, graphic T-shirts are the most important and most expressive format for a designer or a person. Your taste in graphic tees says a lot about your point of view.
520
I find mediocrity hard. I find that whole area difficult. I’m a very passionate person; I care very much about what I do. I believe I give it a lot, so it’s gotta be good; otherwise, what’s the point?
521
Sometimes the point isn’t to make people believe a lie – it’s to make people fear the liar.
522
Everybody is responsible for their own actions. It’s easy to point the finger at somebody else, but a real man, a real woman, a real person knows when it’s time to take the blame and when to take responsibility for their own actions.
523
I grew up below the poverty line; I didn’t have as much as other people did. I think it made me stronger as a person, it built my character. Now I have a 4.0 grade point average and I want to go to college, and just become a better person.
524
Beyond a certain point, the music isn’t mine anymore. It’s yours.
525
No matter where you are, what point in your life you’re at, it’s not the end.
526
I was being called to surrender the very citadel of my self. I was completely in the dark. I did not really know what repentance was or what I was required to repent of. It was indeed the turning point of my life.
Bede Griffiths
527
But at any rate, the point is that God is what nobody admits to being, and everybody really is.
528
I try not to change my political point of view from paper to paper.
Jonathan Shapiro
529
The starting point of all achievement is desire.
530
I have been trying to point out that in our lives chance may have an astonishing influence and, if I may offer advice to the young laboratory worker, it would be this – never to neglect an extraordinary appearance or happening.
Alexander Fleming
531
At my house, it’s an, ‘If dad says it, you can say it’ kind of deal, so a lot of my slang words come off very childish at this point in my career.
532
God requires you individually to come up to the point, to make an entire surrender. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
533
I’m passionate and I travel the world not just as a tourist but to understand cultures… I’ve lived with Masai tribe… I travel the world and bring it back in the form of a research book that would become the starting point for the collection.
John Galliano
534
The ‘Doom‘ thing is to be able to come at things with a different point of view. I decided the mask would just add to the mystique of the character as well as make Doom stand out. I though it’d be an easy way for people to see and differentiate between characters, sorta like when an actor gains weight for a role.
535
Nature shows that with the growth of intelligence comes increased capacity for pain, and it is only with the highest degree of intelligence that suffering reaches its supreme point.
536
I don’t like eating outside food at all. I do it only if there is absolutely no choice. Whenever I have a party at home, and even if there are 25 people coming, I make it a point to cook everything at home, and I don’t get any stuff from outside.
537
I never thought I’d get to the point where I’d be able to release a proper album, and I absolutely never thought that when I did, I would give it a name as stupid I have, but here we are.
538
The voice I’ve chosen to turn to is that of NPR. With a reputation for some of the finest journalism in the country, the nonprofit organization is renowned for its unbiased stance – to the point that it’s been accused of being both conservative and liberal.
539
If you’re not willing to put in the hard work, to endure and fail, there’s no point. You win only if you’re willing to do whatever it takes.
540
It is the chiefest point of happiness that a man is willing to be what he is.
541
One of the secrets of a successful life is to be able to hold all of our energies upon one point, to focus all of the scattered rays of the mind upon one place or thing.
542
A question is a pursuit, an invitation to envision and explore a series of possibilities, to struggle and empathize and doubt and believe. The question moves, whereas our sense of what an answer is can often be static, a stopping point.
543
I’m over being a pop star. I don’t wanna be a hot girl. I wanna be iconic. And I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. I feel like I’m highly respected, which is more important than any award or any amount of records. And I feel like there comes a point when being a pop star is not enough.
544
At some point in every person’s life, you will need an assisted medical device – whether it’s your glasses, your contacts, or as you age and you have a hip replacement or a knee replacement or a pacemaker. The prosthetic generation is all around us.
545
Science of mind teaches you how to realize how much control you have over your own life. It teaches you that we have the ability to change our lives at any point we choose.
Marla Gibbs
546
If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.
547
I think the point about ActionAid is what it’s asking people to do is engage with poor people in developing countries and understand what their lives are like and understand how the way we live our lives impacts on theirs.
548
As Darwin himself was at pains to point out, natural selection is all about differential survival within species, not between them.
549
Science fiction is what we point to when we say it.
Damon Knight
550
It just seemed like Buddhism, especially Tibetan Buddhism – because that’s mainly what I’ve been exposed to – was a real solid organization of teachings to point someone in the right direction. Some real well thought out stuff. But I don’t know, like, every last detail about Buddhism.
551
My name is James Edward Franco. Ted is a nickname for Edward. That’s what my parents called me. I also got ‘Teddy Ruxpin’ a lot. It just got to a point where I got sick of it, so when a teacher called out ‘James Franco’ my junior year of high school, I didn’t correct her.
552
The point of Jesus’ existence wasn’t to lessen or diminish our appreciation of each other, but to expand our appreciation of each other by reminding us what lies within all of us, because Jesus was an example of the pinnacle of human evolution.
553
Let me say that discovering Tagore was the turning point of my life.
554
Opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law. If it goes past the centre of gravity on one side, it must go a like distance on the other; and it is only after a certain time that it finds the true point at which it can remain at rest.
555
Government is taking 40 percent of the GDP. And that’s at the state, local and federal level. President Obama has taken government spending at the federal level from 20 percent to 25 percent. Look, at some point, you cease being a free economy, and you become a government economy. And we’ve got to stop that.
556
History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be.
557
My father always worked away, and died when I was 17, but I hated him by that point. It hit me later in life, but back then I was teenage and angry.
558
Style is the perfection of a point of view.
Richard Eberhart
559
Gifts must affect the receiver to the point of shock.
560
Failure worries me; nobody wants to fail. There is a fear that one day, films will not come my way, or if someone doesn’t watch your film, that is a worrying point. It is unpredictable in the industry.
561
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
562
My experience at West Point and my service as an army officer have molded the way I look at the world.
563
I must stress here the point that I appreciate clarity, order, meaning, structure, rationality: they are necessary to whatever provisional stability we have, and they can be the agents of gradual and successful change.
564
If you have to lie, cheat, steal, obstruct and bully to get your point across, it must not be a point capable of surviving on its own merits.
565
I make a point to tweet out really funny comments I get on YouTube videos. I have the most ridiculous ones.
566
Simple and to the point is always the best way to get your point across.
567
I have always admired people who are comfortable not being liked because I am the opposite of that. To the point when I was little, it was crippling.
568
Years ago we discovered the exact point, the dead center of middle age. It occurs when you are too young to take up golf and too old to rush up to the net.
Franklin Pierce Adams
569
I met Woz when I was 13, at a friend’s garage. He was about 18. He was, like, the first person I met who knew more electronics than I did at that point. We became good friends, because we shared an interest in computers and we had a sense of humor. We pulled all kinds of pranks together.
570
An awful lot of England is slowly eroding, in ways that I find really distressing, and an awful lot of it is the hedgerows… We’re reaching the point where a lot of the English countryside looks just like Iowa – just kind of open space.
571
I don’t care who you are, you’re going to choke in certain matches. You get to a point where your legs don’t move and you can’t take a deep breath. You start to hit the ball about a yard wide, instead of inches.
Arthur Ashe
572
How many times have you been on the freeway and had someone fly by you at 100 mph then end up two cars ahead of you at the off ramp? What’s the point?
Mark Harmon
573
A proverb is good sense brought to a point.
John Morley
574
I wanted very much to do Traffic and at one point it looked like I was going to work on it. And then, of course, Catherine Zeta-Jones had her relationship with Michael Douglas and it suddenly didn’t happen.
575
Everybody has goals, aspirations or whatever, and everybody has been at a point in their life where nobody believed in them.
576
Most people in their lives do feel like they are outsiders at some point.
577
What I don’t want to do is restrict law-abiding citizens from their Second Amendment rights, which are focused on freedom. I point out all the time. Remember, bad guys aren’t stupid, they’re just bad.
Jim Jordan
578
Each one of us decides to incarnate upon this planet at a particular point in time and space. We have chosen to come here to learn a particular lesson that will advance us upon our spiritual, evolutionary pathway.
579
The absolute transformation of everything that we ever thought about music will take place within 10 years, and nothing is going to be able to stop it. I see absolutely no point in pretending that it’s not going to happen. I’m fully confident that copyright, for instance, will no longer exist in 10 years.
580
Self-care is the non-negotiable. That’s the thing that you have to do. And beauty is the thing that can be the benefit of the self-care. Beauty is not the point. Beauty is just a cute side-effect from self-care.
581
A far greater factor than abolishing poverty is the deterrent effect of swift and certain consequences: swift arrest, prompt trial, certain penalty and – at some point – finality of judgment.
Warren E. Burger
582
I have been criticized and ridiculed for turning to astrology, but after a while, I reached the point where I didn’t care.
583
A guy and a girl can be just friends, but at one point or another, they will fall for each other… maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late, or maybe forever.
584
Give yourself permission to get the most out of your life. If you’re spending all your time scrubbing corners with a toothbrush, you’re kind of missing the point. Taking shortcuts doesn’t mean shortcutting the end result.
585
No matter how good you are, at some point your kids are gonna have to create their own independence and think that Mom and Dad aren’t cool, just to establish themselves. That’s what adolescence is about. They’re gonna go through that no matter what.
586
At some point, you grow out of being attracted to that flame that burns you over and over and over again.
587
I was raised in a solidly upper-middle class family who had really strong values and excess was not one of the things that my family put up with. And there’s something wildy decadent about the young-star lifestyle, and I just don’t really see the point.
588
The universe of mortgage lending has gotten to the point where there is a place in it for everybody.
Joe Mays
589
You know it’s a great story when you identify with the main character to the point that you forget you’re a spectator or a reader.
590
At some point, you can’t lift this boulder with just your own strength. And if you find that you need to move bigger and bigger boulders up hills, you will need more and more help.
591
I love games. My favorite thing on this planet to do is to play games. And if you don’t enjoy games, then you’re really missing the point of what this life is.
592
I think at this point in my life, I’d like to play more good guys than bad guys.
593
Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another.
John Dewey
594
The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity – or it will move apart.
595
There is something magical in seeing what you can do, what texture and tone and colour you can produce merely with a pen point and a bottle of ink.
Ida Rentoul Outhwaite
596
When times get tough, at some point, people instinctively know they need to lighten up in order to get through it.
597
If I could have been a marine biologist I would have, but I didn’t have that kind of intelligence. Numbers were never my strong point.
598
God found me when I was at my lowest point. That was the first time in my life when I really felt like I understood who Jesus was – it was more than just knowing about Him: I felt like He met me in that time and place.
599
A strong passion for any object will ensure success, for the desire of the end will point out the means.
Henry Hazlitt

I would sit in class, and I would just cry. Like I don’t even know why. It wasn’t my school’s fault. It wasn’t anyone’s fault. I just didn’t like the environment. I totally had too much on my plate. At this point I wasn’t even doing YouTube yet, mind you.
