Because how many people actually win an Oscar?

I’d make a terrible practitioner of any religion in any formal setting.
David Knopfler
I feel like I missed my era, because I remember the time when black people uplifted each other and looked for the positives. I feel sorry for the people who live their lives in the negative default setting because they filter out what’s good, and that’s no way to live.
I always picture my grandkids looking at their grandfather and saying, ‘My grandfather was the last or the first to do something.’ There’s nothing like setting goals and watching yourself get there, accomplishing that goal and putting your name to a part of history.
There are so many fantastic stories and I want to bring Thor and Odin and the other gods into the modern world, just like I did with the Greeks and ‘Percy Jackson.’ I’ll give the books an urban setting and have young people interacting with the Norse gods.
My mum would say sometimes, ‘Do you think you might be gay?’ But it wasn’t that. When I imagined myself in a romantic setting, it was heterosexual, but I was just always a girl.
When I started to do it with precision, I realized how much setting good screens made us better as a team offensively. It made things easy for me and my teammates.
In ‘Twilight,’ you’re setting up the world. You’re introducing the world, and I was also writing in a vacuum because I didn’t know who the actors were going to be. Now you’re going to ‘New Moon’ and ‘Eclipse,’ and I could write specifically to them in my mind. So it becomes a more comfortable world.
Democratic strategists and operatives should not design a strategy based off today’s conditions. They should be setting a strategy for where the trajectory of polling is headed.
A bridge is born of necessity, but it must establish its own identity. It should harmonize with its surroundings, and the design must transcend the purely local and transform the setting.

Women have not yet realized the cowardice that resides, for if they should decide to do so, they would be able to fight you until death; and to prove that I speak the truth, amongst so many women, I will be the first to act, setting an example for them to follow.
Veronica Franco
Setting targets is very important in my life; I always have targets to fulfil.
Directing seems like a logical progression for me, although I would never put myself in a film of mine. How can you? Putting on make-up while you’re trying to concentrate on setting up the next shot? No, no.
Estate planning is an important and everlasting gift you can give your family. And setting up a smooth inheritance isn’t as hard as you might think.
Labour was founded to make the lives of working people better and to create more opportunities for everyone. Whether it’s aspiring to work as a nurse in a hospital or setting up and running your own business, Labour should be about ensuring fairness so that everyone has the same chance in life to reach their goals.
It’s too much to expect in an academic setting that we should all agree, but it is not too much to expect discipline and unvarying civility.

It’s time to stop defending a system that is clearly in dire need of reform, stop issuing reports and setting up new roadblocks, and start providing Americans with prescription drugs that are both safe and affordable.
Herb Kohl
The Rafale deal narrative that the Congress is setting is a propaganda that has international ramifications.
When you listen to my songs, you hear messages and real stories. That’s what’s setting me apart.
Each of my books is different from the last, each with its own characters, its own setting, its own themes. As a writer, I need the variety. I sense my readers do, too.
Barbara Delinsky

Faith is an island in the setting sun, But proof is the bottom line for everyone.
A new setting is amazing cause it’s new for the team, and it’s new for our characters. It’s a breakaway from the normal deal. You get so tired, locked into a show for so many years. You get used to doing the same thing. A little shake-up and change is good.
They made a mistake. And it was an easy mistake to make. I don’t regard setting incentives aggressively as a mistake. I think the mistake was, when the bad news came, they didn’t recognize it directly. I don’t think that impairs the future of Wells Fargo. They’ll be better for it.
As a child, I was always intrigued by the question: what is it that distinguishes a city from a town? Is it size? Population? Location? When I asked grown-ups, the confident answer was that a city has to have a cathedral – which, to a child raised in a devout Catholic setting, made sense.
By providing clear objectives for your team, and setting guardrails for how they get there, you will set them on the path to success.
I just think, as women, we have to give ourselves room to be individuals. So when a woman makes a decision for herself, we as women shouldn’t set those hardcore boundaries for another woman. Just like we don’t want men setting hardcore boundaries for us.
We in the Labour party know better than most that opposition is the easy part. What’s more difficult is governing and setting out an agenda for government.
One of my most sentimental items is my grandmother‘s engagement ring that my mom gave me a few years ago. It’s a Victorian-style setting that’s closed in the back, so it doesn’t sparkle the way diamonds do now. I wear it as a pendant.
My whole family cooks and I’m in charge of setting the vibes.
I internalise every role that I do and my creative process sees me immerse myself with the setting and the character that I have at hand.

Solomon Asch
My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.
My favourite thorn belongs to the rose with a name like a mouthful of broken teeth, Rosa sericea pteracantha. It is grown almost entirely for its astonishing ruby-red shark‘s fin thorns that are at their lapidary best in early summer, especially when backlit by a low setting sun.
I’ve tried Oculus Rift; I’ve played with the Steam VR rig. Both are mind-blowing. In a traditional video game setting, in a first-person shooter, you can see a tower in the distance. You can walk up to that tower and use your controller to look up.
The biggest thing was just getting comfortable out there in front of all the people and just the whole major setting and how difficult major championships are, how patient… you have to be.

Setting a movie in an earlier age gives it a mythical quality.
Thank God sci-fi has moved away from spaceships fighting aliens! Now it’s a place where you can explore contemporary issues or emotional feelings. You can put it all in a different setting.
I don’t regret setting bombs.
Bill Ayers
When I was going out and trying to fully give glory to God, in my setting, I feared that people would be dismissive of it, like, ‘This is Christian rap. I’m not trying to hear it.’ But it’s the total opposite: People were very accepting of it.
I’m proud of my father, but my pride cannot be fully measured by that snapshot in history. Because contrary to first glance, my father’s legacy comes not from his presiding over the final act in the drama of fighting for equal rights – his legacy is about setting the stage.
Having my film premiere in Cannes has always been the ultimate dream for me. It is a combination of the elegance of the festival, the setting and the quality of films that premiere there.
I often enjoy singing in an acoustic setting more than an amplified one.
I feel, in a way, on a record, you can be more subtle. In the live setting, everything gets amplified. The dynamics are more extreme in concert.
Sondre Lerche
In a way, I have simplified my life by setting priorities.
It’s very satisfying to promote science and education and see good results. Setting a good example for young people, being a role model, is very important for me.
Yuan T. Lee
I didn’t have a father to deal with about boyfriends. I didn’t have a father to show me how a man and woman relate in a family setting. Therefore, I have given over my life to mentoring young people. I’m adamant about young people who have been denied a father/daughter relationship.
Much of a leader’s responsibility in creating a positive, high-performance culture is setting the right tone and acting on it consistently. That day-to-day execution – the tenor and tone – really makes the difference. One deviation – one exasperating meeting – and the CEO legitimizes bad behavior.
If I was a state, I would like to see education left to the schools themselves, but I don’t want the federal government involved in education. I think that it ends up setting standards that cost you time and money and don’t make any difference in education. I want to stop that.
In the entertainment industry, especially, is a total different environment then working in a corporate setting.
Meghann Fahy
I hope our hopes and aspirations are bigger than setting records.

If I’m appearing on ‘Raw,’ then I’m usually there to help sell tickets to something, and that’s when you see the ‘HBK’ Shawn Michaels come out. At panels, I can be more open and honest and show some more humility. They don’t want me talking about my family on TV, but I can in a panel setting.
The answers to all a startup’s challenges are out there. By setting up the right mechanisms for gathering feedback, the road to success can be a less bumpy ride.
With ‘Holes‘ I was troubled that there weren’t very many female characters. I tried to put them in where I could. But the setting didn’t lend itself to girls.
You can probably ask any actor: every time you start a new film, it’s literally like your first movie.

It’s like all of us have moved into a new house, and we are setting up the place.
It is only after you are able to stand on your own feet, or have the confidence that you can stand on your own feet, should you look at doing things such as marriage or setting up a family.

I have my parents to thank for that, they raised me to be active and play all sports. They taught me the importance of staying healthy, being focused and setting goals in whatever I do.
Kiana Tom
When a place comes across vividly in a novel, it’s often compared to a character. I can remember writing teachers who encouraged me to treat setting as if it were a character, to give it three dimensions, to make it come alive, jump off the page.
Mayweather has boxing genius. But it takes one to know one, and he knew right away Pacquiao also has rare boxing IQ – an equalizing gift for setting up and taking down an opponent.
God created us equal. Money and talent might be seen as setting us apart. But underneath, we’re all the same.
What I see as the particularly exciting prospect for writing horror fiction as we go forward is setting stories in more internal landscapes than external ones, mapping out the mind as the home for scary things instead of the house at the end of the lane or lakeside campground or abandoned amusement park.
Andrew Pyper
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Lia Ices
The mood of the country is set by its leaders and they are failing us by not setting a compassionate moral tone in a complex time.
It’s mostly the coaches the refs don’t like. Like Phil Jackson and Gregg Popovich. Jackson is a master at setting up refs, always telling them they’re against his team, playing mind games.

If you’re setting up lights and tripods, and you’ve got three assistants running around, people will want to get you out as fast as they can. But if you go the opposite way, if you make the camera the least important thing in the room, then it’s different.
You go from a touring car to an IndyCar, which isn’t a great jump, and then you go to this big old heavy stock car which doesn’t feel like anything you’ve ever driven before. All of a sudden none of the stuff you’ve learned in your career – like setting up the car or what the mechanics need to know – works any more.
When I did my first film, I had a fair idea of what I liked and what I didn’t while watching an actor in front of the camera. After I finished the film, I thought I had exhausted everything I knew. As I moved from one story, setting and character to another, I discovered something new.
I demand pretty aggressive goal setting and a commitment to measured progress towards those goals because I don’t like surprises. I don’t even like good surprises.
Fifty-nine or 54 or 52 or 49 wins isn’t going to mean a whole lot. What’s going to mean a whole lot to me, our organization, and our fans is how we perform in the playoffs and how deep a run we can make, and that’s what we’re setting our sights on.
I believe that the only way that the human race is gonna survive is to start colonizing space and setting up colonies on the moon, and then space stations.

I love reading fashion magazines, buying handbags, the usual things – but when you’re in the moment and focusing on setting up the car, how you look is so irrelevant.
Real leaders have to live a paradoxical life, where they must break the rules in order to maintain them. If your expectations are high, you’re setting yourself up for disillusionment. The land of governance is paved with gray streets, not black or white ones.
A clever conjurer is welcome anywhere, and those of us whose powers of entertainment are limited to the setting of booby-traps or the arranging of apple-pie beds must view with envy the much greater tribute of laughter and applause which is the lot of the prestidigitator with some natural gift for legerdemain.
It takes a lot of work to be a great mother, a great daughter, and a great friend. All those things take effort, and I think, after having my daughter, she opened up this fearlessness within me, and I’m setting an example for her.
I’ve tried to approach environmentalism the same way I do my climbing: by setting small, concrete goals that build on each other.
When you’re doing a deal with someone in the southern Sahara, it’s a very different way of doing business than in London. You can’t sign them in the usual way because they’d end up getting ripped off, which would defeat the object of setting up a label like this.
I’m big on setting goals, but I also think that if you have too many lofty ambitions and set goals for everything, you can sabotage your efforts by overextending your brain.
I guess drag queens, by nature, have to do everything. When you start being a drag queen, you’re grabbing the microphone, hosting the shows. Then, you’re setting the microphone down and doing the number. You’re spending the day before doing your wigs and sewing your costumes. You’re doing everything.
Clothes should just be like a beautiful setting for a jewel: They should offset you.
Shalom Harlow
Sometimes I carry a Green Marble SeLr setting spray. It’s the one drag queens use. That is bomb.

The press don’t wake up in the morning simply to be a mouthpiece for pols – they’re out to uncover and expose news.

Mundra Port remains committed towards setting up of world-class port infrastructure and facilities in India.
It’s not just about scoring goals, it’s about being a team player and setting goals up.

In Baltimore, I was walking with a friend who was playing at a pub he kept referring to as the Horse. But when I saw the sign ‘The Horse You Came In On’ – I thought, ‘My God.’ I had no intention of ever setting a Jury novel in the U.S., but when I saw that, I thought, ‘That’s it.’ The names are very important.
Martha Grimes
I certainly witnessed bullying as a teen in both a small and a big school setting. I feel like it is a universal topic.

One item on my agenda is simply planning trips, setting them as goals, something to look forward to.
Paul Parker
For my band’s debut tour in 2011, we road-tripped across the country in a 15-passenger van. It was the first time I’d left Alabama. I drove through scenery I’d only ever seen in calendars: auburn leaves falling in Vermont, the sun setting over purple mountains in Arizona. It was incredible.
The Christian fact is very straightforward: To be a student is a calling. Your parents are setting up accounts to pay the bills, or you are scraping together your own resources and taking out loans, or a scholarship is making college possible.

I mean, I could just go round and use session musicians for every song, but I don’t find that helps when it comes to setting up a band for live. Derrick has been with me for donkey‘s years.

The valley we lived in could easily be the setting for a fantasy novel or a prairie western novel. It could be anything.
Arthur Slade

It was a very bizarre experience for me, to get the songs together, go in there, and try to deliver them as I would perhaps in a live setting. But I realized that I couldn’t take on that coffeehouse style that I came from and go in there and burn it up.
The leader must aim high, see big, judge widely, thus setting himself apart form the ordinary people who debate in narrow confines.

Mackenzie Crook
The first day back to school, you never want to wear your best outfit. You’re setting the bar too high for yourself! Then the rest of the school year, you’ll feel so much pressure! Wear something cute, but save your best outfit for a day when no one expects it.
We go old-school during the summer, like swimming or setting up lemonade stands. I try to teach my kids to make their own fun.
Eighty per cent of my time is spent on paperwork, hiring musicians, putting bands together, setting up concerts, and 20 per cent is spent on the music. That’s the part that you really enjoy, but you can’t afford to spend 80 per cent on your music; otherwise, it’s not going to happen.
I’m really trying to stop setting my plays in this one fictional town in Vermont.
Annie Baker

Majel Barrett
Writers often like to talk about how intuitive the writing process is, but in truth, building a book is a remarkably unintuitive task. Or, to put it more accurately, you need a lot more than intuition. You need plot and characters. You need a setting. You need a theme that is relevant and supported by your text.
I look at the game like, ‘How can I impact it not just standing there?’ Just try to be active offensively setting screens, doing stuff like that, but I’m also trying to be active driving the ball to the hole, finishing, one-dribble pull-ups and stuff like that. Just playing ball and not being robotic. Just evolving.
The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.
