I had a TV set and a typewriter and that made me think a computer should be laid out like a typewriter with a video screen.
I probably learned, being in ‘Taxi Driver‘ before I made my first film, I would come to the set every day just to watch how that film came about. It’s like a graduate course: it’s terrific. You talk to the cinematographer during the breaks. You ask the electrician why they are doing this.
Most anything I’ve ever set my mind to, I could accomplish.
People say sometimes that I’m distracted. I’m not distracted. I’m being smart. I’m capitalizing while the iron is hot. That’s why I’m trying to do movies. I do the podcast. I do a radio show. I work on FOX. I have a gym; I have a lot of things going on. That’s because when I’m done, I want to be set up.

It is just as important to set apart time for the development of our aesthetic faculties as for cultivating the money-getting instinct. A man cannot live by bread alone. His higher life demands an impalpable food.

On a film set, there are runners who are 19, it’s their first job, but to me they’re as important as anybody else because if they don’t do their job then nobody else can. So I don’t think anybody should be treated disrespectfully or as if they’re of a lower status.
I am not the kind of director who sits in a chair smoking a cigar talking with a microphone to 10 assistants. I need to move. To touch. To put a painting on a wall. To arrange a set.

The main thing that I learned from editing is that most people, when they’re making a film, they start too early into the story. They will try to set up the characters, they will try to establish things before the plot actually starts.
I could relate to the naive and young Bulbbul, before the character transforms. It was easier to understand her mind set and how she looked at things. But it was difficult to internalise her transformation. It was like playing two different personalities.

The message of Jesus is summed up partly in the Sermon on the Mount, and partly when he begins his ministry and quotes the passage from Isaiah: ‘I have come to set free the prisoners and restore sight to the blind.’ And certainly, his mission is also to bring hope.

If you’re climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don’t look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don’t think you’re progressing until you step back and see how high you’ve really gone.

My dream was to set up my own e-commerce company. In 1999, I gathered 18 people in my apartment and spoke to them for two hours about my vision. Everyone put their money on the table, and that got us $60,000 to start Alibaba. I wanted to have a global company, so I chose a global name.

I think you can have a ridiculously enormous and complex data set, but if you have the right tools and methodology then it’s not a problem.
I was pretty dead set against ever writing an academic novel. It’s always been my view that there are already more than enough academic novels and that most of them aren’t any good. Most of them are self-conscious and bitter, the work of people who want to settle grudges.
Those that set in motion the forces of evil cannot always control them afterwards.
I set my own goals higher than what anybody else has set for me.

I run all the brands like cousins. You want your cousins to do well, but you want to do better. All of our brands want to win, but we certainly want to fight fair and coordinate as much as we can behind the scenes. But to the consumer, we want to offer the broadest, most competitive set of products that we can.
What I tell my kids is, ‘I’m preparing you for college and for life. So, having independence, knowing how to set your own boundaries, figuring out how to make that balance. We still have screen-time rules.’

Just as the system of the sun, planets and comets is put in motion by the forces of gravity, and its parts persist in their motions, so the smaller systems of bodies also seem to be set in motion by other forces and their particles to be variously moved in relation to each other and, especially, by the electric force.
When I wake up, I expect things to be good. If they’re not, then I try to set about trying to make them as good as I can ’cause I know I’m gonna have to live that day anyway. So why not try to make the most of it if you can? Some days, they pan out a little better than others, but you still gotta always just try.
I don’t understand why people set limits, like I will buy a house, then car, and so on. But I ask them, what after you’ve achieved all that? I have come to realize the value other things, like nature, or spending time with my family in Ludhiana or peace of mind.
On a film set, where there is so much chaos, I find inner peace.
If you’re a new artist, practice your art and share it. Set up shop somewhere, whether it’s a street corner or a coffee shop. I got my start in a coffee shop that didn’t even have live music. I wanted to play in coffee shops that did have live music, but I didn’t have an audience.

Give me a laundry-list and I’ll set it to music.

I think when people mean that Discworld books have become darker they really mean the series is growing up. In ‘The Colour of Magic‘ most of the city is set alight. It’s a joke, in much the same way that the Earth is destroyed almost at the start of Douglas Adams’s ‘The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.’
A philosophy of freedom must set out from the experience of thinking, for it is through this experience of thinking that a human being discovers his own self, finds his bearings as an independent personality.

Leaders establish the vision for the future and set the strategy for getting there.

Even if I set out to make a film about a fillet of sole, it would be about me.
Several paranoid suspicions occurred to me, the worst of which was that my whole identity was merely a patched-together set of behaviors designed to keep my parents joined to each other – the repertoire of tricks of a small but intelligent dog.
Honestly, being a 5’11” quarterback, not too many people think that you can play in the National Football League. And so for me, you know, I knew that my height doesn’t define my skill set, you know? I believed in my talent. I believed in what God gave me. I believed in the knowledge that I have of the game.
Our job is to represent the truth of human nature, whether you’re playing a tender love story that’s set in a coffee shop or whether you’re in ‘The Avengers,’ which is set in a Manhattan which is exploding.

The Oslo Accords in 1993 determined that the Gaza Strip and the West Bank are a single territorial entity which cannot be divided. Immediately, the United States and Israel set about separating the two and making sure that they would not be united.

I do not set myself up as an advocate of the woman’s right doctrine, but would rather appear in the character of a quiet lady expressing her sentiments, not so much to the public as to her immediate friends.
You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your best and still don’t win, at least you can be satisfied that you’ve tried. If you don’t accept failure as a possibility, you don’t set high goals, you don’t branch out, you don’t try – you don’t take the risk.
The great thing about being a broadcaster is you have this incredible responsibility to the people that make it all happen, the people that turn on the television set.
Set high standards and few limitations for yourself.

Anytime you’re trying to set a course, there’s gonna be decisions made, and you have to weigh all options, and then in the end you come up with the best course.

The space between the television set and the viewer is holy ground.
Man has set for himself the goal of conquering the world but in the processes loses his soul.
I lived in America for a long time before I started working as an actor. Some actors show up on set and have never done an American accent before, so they rely on a slew of technical mechanisms. Part of what makes an accent is understanding why people speak that way – you have to understand the culture.
If we long to believe that the stars rise and set for us, that we are the reason there is a Universe, does science do us a disservice in deflating our conceits?

So in my sophomore year of high school, I ran in Barcelona for the World Junior Championships, and I set the national record for the girls’ 1,500 meters in doing so.

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.
Every day on set, there was something to watch and learn.
Every significant event that takes place in our lives is set to some kind of music.
My dark secrets are life threatening. Pockets of unhappiness set in aspic that build and build. I have this primitive feeling that if something good happens, it is going to be followed by something bad. There is always a price to pay.

When I create a TV show, it’s so that I can write it. I’m not an empire builder; my writing staff is usually a combination of two kinds of people – experts in the world the show is set in, and young writers who will not be unhappy if they’re not writing scripts.
Globalization is not a monolithic force but an evolving set of consequences – some good, some bad and some unintended. It is the new reality.
Every season is a new challenge to me, and I always set out to improve in terms of games, goals, assists.
I didn’t set out to make this kind of picture. It just came my way. But its been going on for me for 16 years now and its wonderful for an actor to work consistently. There seems to be an insatiable audience for this type of film.

Circumstances dictate your set of values, your set of morals.
Every time you go on a set, it’s a whole different world, and I love that.

I’ve always been about progress and accomplishment. When you set your mind toward a goal, you continue to have follow-through.
I’ve watched ‘Doctor Who‘ since I was a kid. I loved it, and I still love it. I can geek out about it, like when I go to set and see the TARDIS.
Most children – I know I did when I was a kid – fantasize another set of parents. Or fantasize no parents. They don’t tell their real parents about that – you don’t want to tell Mom and Dad. Kids lead a very private life. And I was a typical child, I think. I was a liar.
I was sure I’d set the world on fire, and it was hard for a young feller like me to realize the truth – that I hadn’t set the world on fire, and I was totally unprepared to handle the consequences if ‘The Big Trail’ had been a success and launched me as a star.
Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example.
Every man should have laws of his own, I should think; commandments of his own, for every man has a different set of circumstances wherein to work – or worry.
Giftedness gives you this amazing tool kit for handling self-discipline and gives you an area of knowledge, but then it also gives you this weird set of aspirations.
I set for myself only small goals, goals that are not that far away.
Education is possibility set in motion.
What you write on the page has nothing to do with when you’re on set. When you’re on set, it has nothing to do with when you’re in the editing room. And when you’re in the editing room, it has nothing to do with the final movie. You just have to let it go.
I’ve said this a lot – I’m afraid to have girls! I’ve worked with kids before, and I just relate to boys better. I like their competitiveness and aggression: that’s more my style. I’m still dead set on doing whatever I can to make sure I only have boys!
As an entrepreneur, one of the biggest challenges you will face will be building your brand. The ultimate goal is to set your company and your brand apart from the crowd. If you form a strategy without doing the research, your brand will barely float – and at the speed industries move at today, brands sink fast.
I worry from the moment I take a job. I worry about how I’m going to do it, if I can do it… Then I walk on set and the director says, ‘Roll’, and all of a sudden, all of it disappears and it’s all happening, and I relax, and I’m doing what I do, and I’m not even thinking about it.
Hurricane Katrina this past week was certainly the worst episode in what has become an all-too-familiar and tragic cycle, and our nation is now faced with a set of unprecedented challenges.
That professionalism comes from what I’ve watched people do on the set. I’m just trying to be as respectful to the environment, as they have been. I think I still act like a kid. I just try to be as professional as I can.
Earth as an ecosystem stands out in the all of the universe. There’s no place that we know about that can support life as we know it, not even our sister planet, Mars, where we might set up housekeeping someday, but at great effort and trouble we have to recreate the things we take for granted here.
The Holy Spirit can be with you always and guide you back to Him, but in order to enjoy the benefits of this holy gift, you must truly receive it, and then you must use it in your life. How sad it would be to be given such a precious gift and then set it aside and never use it.
Swing voters are more appropriately known as the ‘idiot voters’ because they have no set of philosophical principles. By the age of fourteen, you’re either a Conservative or a Liberal if you have an IQ above a toaster.
I’m very much a Christian in ideals and ethics, especially in terms of belief in fairness, a deep set obligation to others, and the virtues of charity, tolerance and generosity that we associate with traditional Christian teaching.
Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
This may sound mad, but you sort of assume that no one’s going to watch what you do. You go on set, have a lovely time, and then you forget anyone’s going to see it. So it’s always a bit of a shock to be recognized. I get terribly embarrassed.
In order to cultivate a set of leaders with legitimacy in the eyes of the citizenry, it is necessary that the path to leadership be visibly open to talented and qualified individuals of every race and ethnicity.
Nothing seems at first sight less important than the outward form of human actions, yet there is nothing upon which men set more store: they grow used to everything except to living in a society which has not their own manners.
Comedy is a reflection. We create nothing. We set no styles, no standards. We’re reflections. It’s a distorted mirror in the fun house. We watch society. As society behaves, then we have the ability to make fun of it.
You don’t have to know how to build an automobile or a television set or a laptop to know how to use it.
Find your passion, set a goal, go to work, evaluate, reassess, and repeat.
Everyone who achieves success in a great venture, solves each problem as they came to it. They helped themselves. And they were helped through powers known and unknown to them at the time they set out on their voyage. They keep going regardless of the obstacles they met.
The Israelites’ slavery in Egypt is the equivalent of our slavery to sin. God sent Moses to deliver them from bondage, and He sent Jesus Christ to set us free.
I believe that Americans should be deeply skeptical of government power. You cannot trust people in power. The founders knew that. That’s why they divided power among three branches, to set interest against interest.
It isn’t generally the case that liberals dominate entire hierarchies. That isn’t generally how it works, because the hierarchies are usually set up so that conservatives fill up the hierarchies; it’s in the nature of hierarchy.
The Supreme Court 2013 ruling that gutted the 1965 Voting Rights Act set in motion what many feared: the subjection of minorities, seniors, and low-income Americans to unfair, punitive barriers preventing them from exercising their most basic right as American citizens.
I will follow in my father’s footsteps. My father set the bar very high. He was a wonderful leader.
The key to forming good habits is to make them part of your ‘rituals.’ I have a morning ritual, afternoon ritual, and Sunday ritual. It’s one way to bundle good habits into regular times that you set aside to prepare yourself for the life you want. Rituals help you form habits.
I alone of English writers have consciously set myself to make music out of what I may call the sound of sense.
Revathi madam is a legend, and I have seen young actresses set her performance as a benchmark.
Looking at the world from other species‘ points of view is a cure for the disease of human self-importance. You suddenly realize that consciousness – which we value and we consider the crowning achievement of nature, human consciousness – is really just another set of tools for getting along in the world.
I would encourage you to set really high goals. Set goals that, when you set them, you think they’re impossible. But then every day you can work towards them, and anything is possible, so keep working hard and follow your dreams.
When you’re on a set it can be very tedious and slow. It’s just not as big as when you see it on film.
They are just really stupid people in Hollywood. You write them a script, and they say they love it, they absolutely love it. Then they say, ‘But doesn’t it need a small dog, and an Eskimo, and shouldn’t it be set in New Guinea?’ And you say, ‘But it is a sophisticated romantic comedy set in Paris.’
When it comes to social media, there are just times I turn off the world, you know. There are just some times you have to give yourself space to be quiet, which means you’ve got to set those phones down.
The psychic task which a person can and must set for himself is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity.
You don’t have to label yourself, because it’s not set in stone. It’s so fluid, and there’s so much pressure on kids to label themselves and say, ‘This is what I am; this is what I like.’
When I played pro football, I never set out to hurt anyone deliberately – unless it was, you know, important, like a league game or something.
We never had a billionaire brand in music; the closest thing we had was Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson sold 750 million records. I think we’re gonna set the tone for other youngsters to make more money and see that a billion dollars can be accomplished.
If you don’t set the tone for the day, the devil will set it for you.
We’re on some path that’s set since we’re born, but I still believe we can change some things. So I believe in my faith, but I still don’t believe in my fate.
I’m from the colonies, so I remember when the sun never set on the British Empire.
Usually, if I’m yelling at the TV, I’m in a bar. If I’m by myself, and it’s not a game, I often find myself scolding reality stars that can’t hear me through the television set.
Perhaps nothing helps us make the movement from our little selves to a larger world than remembering God in gratitude. Such a perspective puts God in view in all of life, not just in the moments we set aside for worship or spiritual disciplines. Not just in the moments when life seems easy.
I’m confident that the wrong cinematographer on a project can very much derail the mood and the feeling on set when you’re trying to create a bubble of trust, effectively.
I really tried out for the part of Harry Potter, but they ended up picking me for the part of the enemy of Harry. Actually it is really fun playing the bad kid because it just has so many interesting qualities to it. And Daniel Radcliffe and I get along really well off set so it’s really fun filming.
I’ll keep working and keep going. I don’t set too many targets, I’ll just keep going.
With the right set of mind, with the right people, with the right support, things happen.
Being an actor on a movie set is like going to the playground at recess.
How easily some light report is set about, but how difficult to bear.
Once I get my mind set on something, I want to see it succeed at the highest level.
If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else‘s success.
I work on OpenBSD fulltime, as the project leader. I set some directions, increase communication between the developers, and try to be involved in nearly every aspect of the base system.
I do have a stunt double because there are certain things that they won’t let me do. Like they won’t set fire to me. They won’t like let me jump off a 20 story building. There are certain big stunts that it’s just impossible to get insurance to let me do, but for the most part I’d say I do probably 75% of my stuff.
Believe me when I say this: you can’t please everyone in concert, even though I still want to. Someone always wants you to sing a song that isn’t necessarily on your set list.
If anyone offers conjectures about the truth of things from the mere possibility of hypotheses, I do not see by what stipulation anything certain can be determined in any science, since one or another set of hypotheses may always be devised which will appear to supply new difficulties.
In a world that is constantly changing, there is no one subject or set of subjects that will serve you for the foreseeable future, let alone for the rest of your life. The most important skill to acquire now is learning how to learn.
It doesn’t matter if you’re doing a studio movie or you’re doing an independent movie. When you get to set and you’re doing a scene, it’s always going to be the same job. I really don’t think about my career, in terms of planning it out and what this does for me.
In the age of social media and dating apps, so many people are able to hide behind their Instagram page or their Raya page or Facebook. And it’s like, ‘Let’s set something up! I want to meet face-to-face.’ And ‘Take Me’ was about, ‘Are you going to take me out? Do I have to be the first person to make the move?’
I am doomed to an eternity of compulsive work. No set goal achieved satisfies. Success only breeds a new goal. The golden apple devoured has seeds. It is endless.
Point set topology is a disease from which the human race will soon recover.
Scientists – the crowd that for dash and style make the general public look like the Bloomsbury set.
The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable.
My father died during open-heart surgery on March 29 of my senior year in college. I was getting set to go to law school. I remember sitting in the waiting room when the doctor walked in. I said to myself, The worst possible thing just happened. What will you do?
From my perspective, ‘postmodernism’ merely names an interesting set of developments in the social order that is based on the presumption that God does not matter.
I have been given the authority over you, and I am not the best of you. If I do well, help me; and if I do wrong, set me right. Sincere regard for truth.
I made the right decisions, I set everything on the right course, the reforms are going in the right direction.
I think people are used to seeing actors be wide open and desperately giving of themselves, and while I do that on a movie set as much as I can, it’s so unnatural for me to do it on television, in interviews, in anything like that. I also don’t find that my process as an actor is really anyone else‘s business.
It starts with myself. I have to believe in myself and set expectations for myself, set goals for myself, and continue to work for those goals every day.
I honestly felt no envy or resentment, only astonishment at how much of a world there was out there and how much of it others already knew. The agenda for self-cultivation that had been set for my classmates by their teachers and parents was something I’d have to develop for myself.
With physical prep work, you know if you go to the gym, you will get size. There’s no chance it won’t happen. The emotional prep work is a variable. You could step onto the set one day and have a disconnect with your thoughts and feelings and have a rough day acting because you can’t quite tap into what you need.
If there is to be peace in our industrial life let the employer recognize his obligation to his employees – at least to the degree set forth in existing statutes.
I suppose my Iranian identity is one of the driving forces for being a writer: I want to set the record straight about who I really am.
Donald Evans is a favorite person of mine. His worth ethic, his attitude and his dedication really set him apart.
My job is not to make decisions but to set stretch objectives and help our managers work out how to reach them.
I have been instrumental in banning bottled water on the set. It hasn’t gone that well with the crew… so I replaced it with tequila.
Data can set you free.
Human behavior is an enormously complex set of things, and that mixture of underlying things is different for different people, so it’s not just complex, it’s meta-complex.
The notion that before you even set out to go to Thailand, you say, ‘I’m not interested,’ or you’re unwilling to try things that people take so personally and are so proud of and so generous with, I don’t understand that, and I think it’s rude. You’re at Grandma‘s house, you eat what Grandma serves you.
Now, honestly, every movie set that I go on, I walk onto set with the confidence that there is nothing that they can throw at me that’s gonna surprise me.
When I’m on an adult set and I’m in a scene, I am myself. I’m not acting. I am playing to the camera, definitely, but I am myself.
Trust your gut feeling about things, listen to what others are saying, and look at the results of your actions. Once you know the truth, you can set about taking action to improve. Everyone will be better for it.
On a regular basis if you’re trying to produce something, I think you should work every day and set achievable goals.
The propagandist’s purpose is to make one set of people forget that certain other sets of people are human.
Just set yourself a goal and try and stick to it. Because you’ll always end up better than where you started.
The License Raj in India was a time when, to set up an industry, you needed a license. Which made the government an omnipresent and sort of all-pervasive authority.
The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.
Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others.
Set religion free, and a new humanity will begin.
As climate change moves from a model of the future to the reality of the present, health care systems across the country are facing a difficult set of questions. What are doctors supposed to do when wildfires, rising floodwater or other natural disasters threaten their ability to provide care for patients?
I’ll say initially acting was my first love, and that’s what I pursued. But then, so far as even my first day on a film set, and just watching how things were set up, I just said, ‘I think I want to be in charge.’ I am very much type-A. I am a bit of a control freak.
Being on set is really hard because there’s craft service.
I can go to the BBC and say, ‘OK, my next drama is for women, and it is diverse women.’ I take that to America, however, and I have another set of conversations.
When you do a play, you have all this time to rehearse and grow into the character. In television, even though you’re waiting and waiting and waiting, once you’re actually on set engaging in the scene with another actor, time is of the essence.
We have also set up the national institute for ethics. This institute and also the implementation of the national integrity plan, that will certainly do the follow up that is necessary for this.
Ueli Steck, I’m absolutely certain, had a very strong inner drive to keep pushing. He set very high standards for himself.
Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all your energies on a limited set of targets.
I sort of set myself really high standards which is good and bad. If I know that I’ve done all I can to prepare, that’s when I race the best and in ’09 I was going through a lot of emotional ups and downs and I was never as fit as I would have liked to have been. So I never felt comfortable.
I look back at Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, and especially Betty Carter, whom I admire the most, and I say, OK, they set a standard of excellence. I listen to them not for what they are doing, but to study where they are coming from because, for me, jazz is life experience.
The Beatles set the rules. And the rules were: now just because we have long hair doesn’t mean that we’re rebellious.
Public action should seek to expand the set of opportunities of those who have the least voice and fewest resources and capabilities.
On the morning of Thanksgiving, I would wake up to the home smelling of all good things, wafting upstairs to my room. I would set the table with the fancy silverware and china and hope that my parents and grandmother wouldn’t have the annual Thanksgiving fight about Richard Nixon.
The basis of drama is… the struggle of the hero towards a specific goal at the end of which he realises that what kept him from it was, in the lesser drama, civilisation and, in the great drama, the discovery of something that he did not set out to discover but which can be seen retrospectively as inevitable.
It’s so hard to do the right thing with a pen and a piece of paper and a set of abstract thoughts.
The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and never persist in trying to set people right.
Well, you know, I never want to feel like I have a set plan of what I’m supposed to do. I kind of like to go script by script, and if I like the character and like the story that’s why I want to do a movie.
Happy accidents are real gifts, and they can open the door to a future that didn’t even exist. It’s kind of nice sometimes to set up something to encourage or allow happy accidents to happen.
It is easy to criticize me from behind a pen or a microphone, from someone who never set foot on a football field.
‘Moonlight‘ is a story that hasn’t been told. Whether placed as queer black cinema or urban male cinema, the lack of coming-of-age films featuring people like Chiron and set in places like inner-city Miami is pronounced and unfortunate.
I’ve given up on trying to explain myself, or trying to set the record straight, or trying to get people to understand what I’m really like as a man, outside of my acting, outside of my job.
There’s a reasonable amount of traction in college education, particularly engineering, because quite a lot of that is privatized, so there is an incentive to set up new colleges of reasonably high quality.

The thing you fear most has no power. Your fear of it is what has the power. Facing the truth really will set you free.
Poetry can unleash a terrible fear. I suppose it is the fear of possibilities, too many possibilities, each with its own endless set of variations… With basketball, you can correct your own mistakes, immediately and beautifully, in midair.
While different people may approach opportunities in different ways, we need to base decisions on a fundamental set of values as we chart our course of action.
The sun will not rise or set without my notice, and thanks.
Whatever your situation might be, set your mind to whatever you want to do and put a good attitude in it, and I believe that you can succeed. You are not going to get anywhere just sitting on your butt and moping around.
It’s amazing how much you can absorb on a film set.
I have a sensible set of values that tell me to never lie.
You can have a bad day, but as soon as you set foot on that stage it’s joyous.
I set some goals: little goals first and then the big ones. I stopped thinking about big achievements.
True marshmallow – and I’m not talking about those ones from a bag – is nothing more than an Italian meringue set with gelatin.
Systematic theology – be careful how you tie down the Word to fit your set and final creeds, systems, dogmas, and organized theistic philosophies! The Word of God is not bound! It’s free to say what it will to the individual, and no one can outline it into dispensations which cannot be broken.
I was full time on ‘Party of Five’ for one year, then more like a creative consultant for two years, where I was in the writing rotation but didn’t have to go in every day or cover the set until midnight.
What is called for is dignity. We need to set an example.
The sun has not yet set for all time.
Virtue is like a rich stone, best plain set.

Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
As pessimistic as I am about the nature of human beings and our capacity for atrocity and malevolence and betrayal and laziness and inertia, and all those things, I think we can transcend all that and set things straight.
I don’t know if it has set in or not. Honestly, it’s crazy. It’s such an amazing honor. I remember thinking back to being in my room waiting for the call to see if I got the part. It’s like winning the lottery. I’m proud to be a member of such an amazing cast – that’s the best award of all.
One of the great strengths of the United States is… we have a very large Christian population – we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.
Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
The people recognize themselves in their commodities; they find their soul in their automobile, hi-fi set, split-level home, kitchen equipment.
From too much love of living, From hope and fear set free, We thank with brief thanksgiving Whatever gods may be That no life lives for ever; That dead men rise up never; That even the weariest river Winds somewhere safe to sea.
As I’ve traveled the country, we visit tech incubators all the time where women are going into their second or third act in their career and learning how to be software programmers, or how to work at startup companies, and learning a completely different skill set. I think it’s never too late.
If the world ran the way a crew runs a set, we’d have a better, more progressive world.
They were fun days, and we set the town on fire with every movie we did.
My first film was a movie shot in 1974. I was 18 on that movie set. It was called ‘Big Bad Mama.’ I turned 19 on the next movie I worked on, which was a black ‘Blazing Saddles.’ I worked in the art department. It was called ‘Darktown Strutters.’
When I came into this business, there was a bar set for me. My goal is to push it as high as I can to make my family’s legacy even stronger. To add to the history that’s already been created. So for me, it’s a huge challenge that I’m willing to fight for every single day.
Our whole life is set up in the path of least resistance. We don’t want to suffer. We don’t want to feel discomfort. So the whole time, we’re living our lives in a very comfortable area. There’s no growth in that.
It may be that religion is dead, and if it is, we had better know it and set ourselves to try to discover other sources of moral strength before it is too late.
Genius is talent set on fire by courage.
I like crossing the imaginary boundaries people set up between different fields – it’s very refreshing.
Yes, I’ve heard of the ‘Mad Men‘ comparisons, but I like to think ‘The Hour’ has its own distinctive voice. Although it is set in 1956, I have tried to give it a contemporary edge, and its themes of love, passion, romance, fury, professional jealousy, and personal failure are universal, I think.
I’ve always done food that can work in a set time frame. The message I’m trying to get across is, it doesn’t have to take three days to do this. With planning, you can do a lot and really have quality food every day.
Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.
There’s something frightening that comes with freedom. And there was something very frightening for a lot of slaves once they were free and were going through Reconstruction. It was like, what do you do now? There was nothing set up.
President Obama seems to understand the Constitution as a ‘set of suggestions.’
My first day in Chicago, September 4, 1983. I set foot in this city, and just walking down the street, it was like roots, like the motherland. I knew I belonged here.
Given the rapid rate of change, the old paradigm of one-off education followed by a career will no longer work: life-long learning is a must, and it is up to governments and employers to invest in training and for employees to commit to constantly update their skill set.
You have to be strategic with your career path and set a goal for yourself so you’re not wandering aimlessly.
The press is the hired agent of a monied system, and set up for no other purpose than to tell lies where their interests are involved. One can trust nobody and nothing.
I’m not an example for how people should live their lives. Never in my life would I ever set out to be an example for people on how to live their lives. If you need an example for how to live, then you just shouldn’t have been born. Straight up.
Floyd has showed me that he’s set up with real estate, businesses, and investments.
The actor already comes with emotions to the scene: fear, the fear of being in front of the camera. It is this fear that spurs the emotion of the scene. I too am afraid; I don’t know exactly what I am searching for. On the set, we are all participating in this fear together.
You should set goals beyond your reach so you always have something to live for.
The pursuit of truth will set you free; even if you never catch up with it.
We didn’t set out to be educators or even scientists, and we don’t purport that what we do is real science but we’re demonstrating a methodology by which one can engage and satisfy your curiosity.
The professionals must set a good example.
Every time you do something, make something, it’s final in a way, but it’s not. It immediately raises a great set of questions. And if you become a question addict, which I am, you immediately have something you need to pursue.
The show is ’12 Monkeys,’ and I’m playing the role that Bruce Willis played in the original film ’12 Monkeys.’ It is a show about time travel. My character is from a future post-apocalypse, and he has been given a mission to go back in time to essentially set things right and stop the apocalypse. No big deal.
In ‘The Plato Papers‘ I wanted to get another perspective on the present moment by extrapolating into the distant future. So in that sense, there’s a definite similarity of purpose between a book set in the future and a book set in the past.
I’d be happy doing anything on a film set.
The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.
A set is a Many that allows itself to be thought of as a One.
To a generation beaten down by skyrocketing unemployment, plunging retirement savings, and mounting home foreclosures, ‘Mad Men’ offers the schadenfreude-filled message that their predecessors were equally unhappy – and that the bleakness meter in American life has always been set on high.
My biggest high is just to be in front of the camera and be on a film set.
My novels about medieval Wales were set in unexplored terrain; my readers did not know what lay around every bend in the road.
I always had really good teachers, that were always about more than what was in the books. Those little advice and tips can set you down the right path in your life.
Don’t let the Monday morning quarterbacks stop you from being bold. You’ve got to set a high bar.
Tennis is best of three sets, so even if I lose the first set, I still have a chance.
I don’t set out to write something. I more just write, and later on, I discover what it’s about.
I never set out to be weird. It was always other people who called me weird.
I just aspire to be the best I can be. I want to work hard and set one goal at a time for myself.
Following the teaching of Gandhi and Thoreau, Dr. King, it set me on a path. And I never looked back.
Never think you can’t do something. I definitely never thought I could write a book, and even after I started writing it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, how am I gonna write a book?’ Just set your sights high and reach for the stars. Go live your dreams, and never think you can’t.
