The older supermodels sometimes don’t agree with the fact there is a new generation of models. We’re not saying we’re supermodels.

Yes, in general, I think there is too much club football on TV.
I think it’s a very central tenet to it yes, it is. I can’t bear it, I can’t bear inequality, I can’t bear bad behaviour to other people. I cannot bear it that people are mean to people who can’t help what they are.
I got a phone call from Jon Favreau saying, ‘I need the voice of a personality-less robot, and I thought of you immediately.’ I thought that was the funniest thing I ever heard, so I said, ‘Yes.’

I’m tenacious, I think – I know – and I do also have a quality where if you tell me I can’t do something, if I know I can’t do it I’m the first to raise my hand and say, ‘I can’t do that.’ But there is a big Bronx, New York Jew in me that just says, ‘Really? Really? You think I – yes, I can. I can do it. I can do it.’

Yes, I enjoyed my share of fantasy fiction series and comics. Among superheroes, Spiderman was my favorite. I always had this fascination for costume-clad vigilante who would come and save the day!
If I’m only defined by my sport, I really have failed. Yes, I’ve opened myself up for more criticism, but I’m a professional athlete. I get criticised every week. I’m used to it. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt, but you get used to it.
My parents are very hard working people who did everything they could for their children. I have two brothers and they worked dog hard to give us an education and provide us with the most comfortable life possible. My dad provided for his family daily. So, yes, that is definitely in my DNA.
We ought to thank God for that. Yes, the man who tills the land is more worthy of respect than any.

Oh yes, I love gadgets.
I hate the terminology of ‘costume’ because my clothes are not costumes at all. I think they’re high fashion, avant-garde, and more couture, definitely, and yes, some of my pieces are not particularly wearable, but I wouldn’t say they’re costumes, I’d say they’re more couture.
Yes, exercise is the catalyst. That’s what makes everything happen: your digestion, your elimination, your sex life, your skin, hair, everything about you depends on circulation. And how do you increase circulation?
Am I a workaholic? Yes, but I also have no problem taking time for myself.

Acting is a strange profession, and, yes, sometimes I struggle with its worth, its value in the world.

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.
Cap the well, yes. Clear up the mess, yes. Make compensation – yes, absolutely. But would it be right to have legislation that independently targets BP rather than other companies? I don’t think that – would be right.

I’m not up on the Internet, but I hear that is a democratic possibility. People can connect with each other. I think people are ready for something, but there is no leadership to offer it to them. People are ready to say, ‘Yes, we are part of a world.’
Yes, and it’s my third movie with Richard. American Gigolo was my first.
Now, people when I say that look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?’. The answer is yes, that’s what I’m telling you.

Yes, but Hollywood is the strangest place in that they’ll torpedo their own film to prove an emotional point.
Luck always favours the brave. And you must remember that brave are the people who follow their heart; brave are the people who take chances in life. Which also means you have to say no sometimes. I believe the power of no is greater than yes.
I am not in every picture I post, and my social media is not only for film promotions. I don’t feel comfortable with that. Yes, I’ll post something promotional now and then, but rest of the time, it is like any other social media account.

Jordan has to show the Arab world that there’s another way of doing things. We’re a monarchy, yes, but if we can show democracy that leads to a two-, three-, four-party system – left, right and center – in a couple of years’ time, then the Muslim Brotherhood will no longer be something to contend with.
Most of the things we decide are not what we know to be the best. We say yes, merely because we are driven into a corner and must say something.
As a showrunner, you can never be a ‘maybe.’ When I do movies, there is a lot of, ‘Maybe’ and, ‘Let’s investigate that.’ But for TV, it has to be yes or no.

Yes, I always imagined living in other places.
Yes, thanks to God… my life has a goal, much more important than my artistic activities, that is the struggle against Leukemia.
I simply can’t do one-word message replies: Yes. Ok. No. Sure. Cool. None of these are options for me. I must write something extra. Something personal. I put kisses and emoticons. Emoticons, by the way, are my very best friends. They have removed all the pressure of thinking up something personal to say.
Yes, I have spent. I have lived and had accidents. It’s all part of life’s wonderful experience.
Yes, we record practically everything on Pro Tools.

I noticed that there are no B batteries. I think that’s to avoid confusion, cause if there were you wouldn’t know if someone was stuttering. ‘Yes, hello I’d like some b-batteries.’ ‘What kind?’ ‘B-batteries.’ ‘What kind?’ ‘B-batteries!’ and D-batteries that’s hard for foreigners. ‘Yes, I would like de batteries.’
Yes, well I really hope I can make a difference, even in the smallest way. I am looking forward to helping as much as I can.

I’m told that I look like a nice girl. But, yes, I do a full contact sport, and when people ask what I do, they are a bit surprised when I say, ‘A martial art, a full contact sport.’

My friends ask me if I want more kids, and I always say yes, I want more; it’s the best thing you can have in your life.

It’s really obvious that we have very serious inequality in this country across many different spectrums. Yes, we can talk about the form of protest or the way it’s done or this or that. But it’s still not really the conversation that I think we desperately need to have more of in this country.
In my imagination yes, I remember, when I was six years old, I was conducting all this concert in my house. But now it’s real.
Do I believe in God? Yes I do. When you’ve had a life like mine, you have to.
I would never say yes to a fight that would take me out of the title picture if I’m in it. If I did it, I’d want to be compensated. That’s the important thing. If you ask me to do something like that, I need to be compensated correctly.
Oh yes, as a matter of fact it is quite interesting that exercises can be conducted which demonstrate conclusively that there are memories which exist prior to this life.

Yes, I made mistakes by rebelling, by acting out in confused ways.

Yes, I won the Bafta. I thought the British were very intelligent.
Yes, but another writer I read in high school who just knocked me out was Theodore Dreiser. I read An American Tragedy all in one weekend and couldn’t put it down – I locked myself in my room.

Does being a feminist mean that I believe that I’m as good as any man? Yes.

Some things is made by destiny, yes, other things by hard work, but quality you don’t learn. Quality you are born with.

Yes, I know and then in the same time period within those nine years I lost 150 pounds.
Yes and, you know, I can’t use the nice words anymore because I used to chicken out by using them. I used to call myself plus size, used to call myself chubby. I used to call myself overweight.
Yes, I would love to play one of the leads in one these movies and have all those challenges and deal with all those complications, but the business being what it is, there is a slot for me in these kinds of films, so I enjoy them, and I enjoy the people that I work with.

There’s a classic medical aphorism: ‘Listen to the patient; they’re telling you the diagnosis.’ Actually, a lot of patients are just telling you a lot of rubbish, and you have to stop them and ask the pertinent questions. But, yes, in both drama and medicine, isolated facts can accumulate to create the narrative.
I think as a leader, as a captain, it’s important to back your instincts, whatever you feel. Yes, it is important to take advice from your colleagues, but in the end what your instincts tell you, you should back that.

The bosses can’t read your mind, so I think women should tell them what they want out of their careers. And so I think that if you’re just a good person, you work hard, you say ‘yes,’ and you are driven, you will eventually work your way to the top. At least, that’s how it’s been for me.

But I’m proud to come from a family of Republicans and, yes, we have some spirited discussions in our family.

Yes, in fact, it’s hard to believe this, but it was almost 18 years ago when I first got the idea.

‘Yes’ is a far more potent word than ‘no’ in American politics. By adopting the positions which animate the political agenda for the other side, one can disarm them and leave them sputtering with nothing to say.

Yes, politics IS war without bloodshed; and war is an extension of those politics.

Yes, fractals are what I want to find in my music.
In India, I personally believe yes, there is a clear fear of unknown; there’s a lot of risk aversions in science and technology.

Have I been wiretapped? Yes. But who they said wiretapped me was incorrect.

I didn’t have any doubts about my choice of career, but I had constant doubts about my ability, yes.
Every label thinks, when they sign someone, ‘This is the perfect pedigree to sign. They’re cute, they can sing, they can dance, et cetera.’ And they say to the public, ‘Here, this is what you’re gonna like.’ But you might say, ‘No, I don’t like that!’ You’ll probably say ‘no’ many more times than you’ll say ‘yes!’
Yes, but personally I was never a big acid head.
Being home alone at night makes me a bit nervous. If I’m at home alone, I have to sleep on the sofa – I can’t face going to bed. I’m there with the TV on and all the lights on. I’m not very brave about anything in life. In tennis, yes. In everything else, not very.
Well, it’s not full time – my dancers are only paid for six months of the year in two three-month blocks; but yes, it is possible we could do it in another year.

My dad was a Presbyterian minister. Yes, I am one of those dreaded P.K.s – Preacher’s Kids. Be afraid.

I’m up for re-election in 2014, and yes I do plan to run for re-election.
‘Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars.’ Guess what? Yes, we do in one regard: We want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn’t have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super-wealthy. That’s not a tax raise. That’s called fairness where I come from.
Yes, well, you are quite camp, so I guess that he could see the point of you.
Expand the definition of ‘reading’ to include non-fiction, humor, graphic novels, magazines, action adventure, and, yes, even websites. It’s the pleasure of reading that counts; the focus will naturally broaden. A boy won’t read shark books forever.
If an apprentice does not hear what a master hears, is then that quality not present in the music? Yes and no. In the world in which the apprentice lives no.
I love all Yes music and love to play it live, but I’m most interested in making new music with Yes.
Music is beautiful. Yes, music is great. My music’s great.
Global poverty is a complex web of interlinked problems. There is no one ‘silver bullet‘ that will solve global inequality. Multiple contributing factors must be tackled in parallel. Yes, education alone is unlikely to lead to employment without economic reform to address the demand side in much of the developing world.
Yes, actually ever since I saw his films and tried to write about them, Sirk’s been in everything I’ve done. Not Sirk himself, but what I’ve learned from his work.

There is this strange thing that just because chronologically on a Friday night you have reached a certain age… with all that experience, how can it be that on a Monday morning, you are useless?
I think in any organization you want your manager to have a strong opinion. You don’t want them to just say, ‘Yes, sir’ to things they don’t believe in.
Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that. Yes, yes, it’s the most comical thing in the world.
Though it’s safe to say there are a whole lotta American gals who agree with the core ideals of feminism, they are somehow nevertheless watching ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ by the millions.
Words, yes, formulating things, creating something from your heart, it is something very necessary, yes.
All art is political. Yes. Even the stuff that sounds like bubble-gum songs. I think all art is, by nature, intended to motivate society for change, and the only reason change doesn’t happen is because within the target population, courage is lacking.
Yes, I always remember my dad’s, mom’s and my grandma‘s perfumes.
It’s good fun, yes, but when we play, we take it seriously and want to do well.
World records at 19. I don’t want that. Later, yes. And when it comes, I’ll learn to live with it, but it won’t be my first love.
Yes, it is frustrating to listen to those who foment fear, suspicion and intolerance, who don’t know the mistakes of history, and are in the midst of repeating them. Have faith that the character of the American people as a whole is such that, in the end, we will choose not to drink this brand of soiled milk.
I prefer to have the music as pure as possible. I don’t want to say, ‘Oh yes, this is good. This is not good; I have to do it again.’ I don’t want to do it again. I want to do it once. It’s no good, I do another one.
I had good coaches and mentors. They helped me a lot, and I trusted them when they tapped on my shoulder to move to the next level. And maybe I’ve been smart enough to always say yes more than no when I’ve been proposed a new and challenging jobs.
Yes, I do get recognized in public. It’s pretty nice.
Yes, I am complimented on my work in Kids in the Hall once or twice a week. It’s a nice feeling.
Yes, I travel in unusual circles. George Osborne and his wife Frances are my cousins.
And yes, there’s a simplicity to writing books because you’re not a member of a team, so you make all the decisions yourself instead of deferring to a committee.
But, on balance, we seized the marketplace. We’ve got a great infrastructure. And yes it’s struggling in some areas because of some external factors and some internal factors.
Yes, I have made a woman cry.
My parents know I was outgoing as a child, and whenever people came over, I’d automatically do impressions of them as soon as they left; it was my mom’s favorite thing. Yes, I grew up in Hollywood, but not in any rich neighborhood.
It’s a political and manipulative industry. Actors vie for the same roles, movies are snatched away. Have I ever been manipulated? Yes. But I haven’t manipulated anyone because if you think from the heart, you cannot be calculative. I have spent nights crying.
Yes, natural is good and healthy, and whole foods are important. However, experimentation is important, too.
Am I bossy? Absolutely. I don’t like to lose, and if I’m told ‘no,’ then I find another way to get my ‘yes.’ But I’m a loyal person.
Beautiful? It’s all a question of luck. I was born with good legs. As for the rest… beautiful, no. Amusing, yes.
I go to see films at the multiplex because they are not good films, and so I don’t have to think about things like death, social oppression, or yes, my fertility, while I watch them.
Death obsesses me, yes it does. I can’t really understand why it doesn’t obsess everyone – I think it does really, I’m just a little more out about it.
Saying no frees you up to say yes when it matters most.
It was just this crazy craziness, and the fact that it was shot in Paris, and it had these incredible people in it. It was an easy thing to say yes to.
Yes, we’ve seen it all before. And yes, those who do not study history are condemned to repeat it. But no, the sky is not falling – baseball is such a great game that neither the owners nor the players can kill it. After some necessary carnage, market forces will prevail.
