I ran for the presidency, despite hopeless odds, to demonstrate the sheer will and refusal to accept the status quo.

34
When we started work on ‘Baahubali,’ my sheer aim was to be able to live up to the imagination that Rajamouli sir had in mind.

For sheer creativity and totality of involvement, ‘Rolf’s Cartoon Club’ with HTV in Bristol was an amazing show to work on, but I think the ‘Rolf on Art’ series, culminating in the painting of the Queen‘s portrait to celebrate her 80th birthday, just nudges into the favourite spot.

100

Some people mistake grit for sheer persistence – charging up the same hill again and again.

135

Ralph Adams Cram
147
Roald Dahl pioneered a new kind of literature for youngsters, one that dispensed with cant and solemnity, favoring anarchy and joy over duty and humbuggery while acknowledging that oftentimes no good deed goes unpunished. But ultimately, it was his sheer joie de vivre that carried the day.
148

Cynthia Voigt
154
I’ll meet listeners who tell me what a great voice I have. But I don’t have a great voice for radio. My voice is the utterly normal voice, but sheer repetition has made them think it’s OK. Mick Jagger once was asked, ‘What makes a hit song? He said, ‘Repetition.’

161
When I first walked in to London, I was so overwhelmed by the village, the sheer volume of people. I was just so excited. You don’t know what to expect.
