Clint Howard

I am a big believer that orderliness begets wealth. A pile of bills and statements – whether paid or not – is a sign that someone is clueless about what’s coming in and going out. When you consciously open, read, and file away your bills and statements, you are connecting with your money and taking control of your life.
Suze Orman

Tina Brown
I see kids and young adults walking the streets of L.A. with this enormous sense of entitlement, who seem to think that if they are basically good people and pay their bills, then the world will be good back to them. And I think life isn’t always like that.

Patty Murray
I want to be really clear about something: I think we kind of fetishize the creative life.

Bills ought to be passed with deliberation by committees. Change should be achieved in a bipartisan manner. Incrementally, day by day, we should reach a consensus – not perfect, by any means – but something that we can be proud of, nonetheless.

Marisol Nichols
Speaking nothing of how we often fall short in keeping our promises, we frequently play an unnecessary game of politics with key issues – using must-pass legislation such as disaster relief as a vehicle to sweeten unrelated, contentious bills that may not otherwise pass as stand-alone measures.
Mark Meadows
Turning a blind eye to your finances always brings trouble. When you let the bills or late notices stay in their envelopes, you’re making matters worse. When you finally have to deal with the problem – believe me, you will eventually – it will be exaggerated because you didn’t take action.
Jean Chatzky
I had a friend at college who took being poor very personally. He started showering in the sports centre next door and said he wasn’t going to pay for the hot water in our flat any more because he didn’t use it. He made me and my other friend pay the bills on our own.
Robert Webb
At one point, I had over 800 employees, and I always paid all health care for my people – including a man who was my assistant who got HIV. I wound up paying his medical bills, which went into the hundreds of thousands. I’m not making myself out to be a saint. I did the right thing.

I’ve been doing comedy and paying my bills.

Doing music to pay bills is an uncomfortable situation. I never wanted to be in that situation.

Stipe Miocic
My mom, her money going was straight to the bills.
Kodak Black
The way I look at it, everything is a trade. You acquire some money, so then you’ve got no financial burdens, but everyone wants your money and so who can you trust? Or you’ve got no money and you can trust anyone, but then you’ve got the worry to pay bills. Which is worse?
Matt LeBlanc
I am prepared to discuss the things that I believe we need to do not just to raise the debt limit. Raising the debt limit is the easiest thing. That’s one vote away. The hard thing is to show the world we are serious about putting our spending in order so we can show people we’ll able to pay our bills down the road.
Marco Rubio
When you go through the death of somebody who you care about, and taking on moving, bills, and a daughter, it makes you feel older. You learn a lot about life.

Nicolas Winding Refn
If you ask the question of Americans, should we pay our bills? One hundred percent would say yes. There’s a significant misunderstanding on the debt ceiling. People think it’s authorizing new spending. The debt ceiling doesn’t authorize new spending; it allows us to pay obligations already incurred.
Peter Welch
Zombie books were going to be my passion projects, but certainly not pay the bills. I thought I was going to have to get a real job on a sitcom or something, and have my zombie books to remind myself I was still a writer at heart. I never thought I could actually pay my bills and write what I wanted.
Max Brooks
It seems like every week we are considering bills that would make it harder to limit the amount of carbon we are dumping into our atmosphere, and prevent implementation of clean technologies. The voters who sent us here deserve better.
Mark Pocan
Raising the debt ceiling is not additional spending. It is simply saying, you, the United States of America, can continue to borrow the money you need to pay the bills you have already rung up.
Jay Carney
Nothing wrong with making money or doing what you need to do to sell, but I think it shows when you’re writing something to pay the bills and when you’re writing something because it’s really your version of the world.
Laurell K. Hamilton
You can take a chance with any man who pays his bills on time.

Completing annual appropriations bills would be an important step in responsible federal budgeting.

Research confirms that both Republican and Democratic women are more likely than their male counterparts to initiate and fight for bills that champion social justice, protect the environment, advocate for families, and promote nonviolent conflict resolution.

Stephanie Land
If you have to pay the bills, and you write something you’re not proud of, use a pen-name for that.

Andrew Scheer
We believe that electricity exists, because the electric company keeps sending us bills for it, but we cannot figure out how it travels inside wires.
Dave Barry
An actor equals, sometimes, an entitled baby. People take care of things for me, and they pay greater attention to things than I was ever capable of doing. But in the last few years, I have learned a great deal more about taking care of things. I pay my own bills now.
Christian Slater
If the U.S. Government was a company, the deficit would be $5 trillion because they would have to account by general accepted accounting principles. But actually they encourage government spending, reckless government spending, because the government can issue Treasury bills at extremely low interest rates.
Marc Faber
I’m an artist but I’m also a real person. I have bills like everyone else.

Frank Zappa
Washington’s a mess, but that’s not stopping me from getting bills to help Montana signed into law by President Trump.
Jon Tester
Writing itself is a dream. There are days of self doubt and deadlines and wondering how you’re going to pay the bills until you write that bestseller. But it’s still the best job I’ve ever had. I’ve also been able to help a lot of people and even inspire a few and that feels great.
Graham Brown
If we had decided on January 5, in the new House of Representatives, to make no new spending bills, the debt ceiling would’ve still been hit, because, those are bills that are coming in as a result of purchases and commitments made by the administration and the previous Congress.
Bill Johnson
I just like to keep working and being able to pay my bills.
Emma Stone
Unions have been under attack for quite some time, and I think a lot of the jobs that we need to create in this country need to be union jobs. People want to be able to get a job that they can rely on to feed their family and pay their bills.
Richard Ojeda
I am fighting on many fronts to protect access to affordable health care because I don’t want to see medical bills continue to climb and millions of people to lose coverage.

We’ve seen filibusters to block judicial nominations, jobs bills, political transparency, ending Big Oil subsidies – you name it, there’s been a filibuster.
Elizabeth Warren
My own feeling on the consumer is that he – he or she looks at what it costs them to pay their bills every month as opposed to how much debt they have.
Kenneth Langone
My old life was really hard. I had to get up at 4:30 A.M. in the morning to pay the bills. You know that if you don’t turn up you don’t get paid. It has really helped me knuckle down as a dart player and treat it like a job.
Rob Cross
You gotta keep working, baby. You gotta work. I got kids, I got bills, I like nice things – always buying cars and watches. I’m a sneaker-head.
Costly jail calls and high commissary fees have forced families to choose between paying their bills and talking to their loved ones who are serving time, adding further costs to an already difficult situation.

Roger Stone
I know how far a fiver can go in non-League, let alone 100,000! So it is a lot of money. That money can be spread across the country to grassroots football which is fantastic. It can help them with things like electricity bills, new kits, new footballs and lawnmowers.
Jimmy Bullard

I paid my own bills even when I was married and my husband could have easily paid them.
Carole Radziwill

M. J. Hyland
Many bills and many amendments that get passed get passed by a voice vote. They don’t actually get voted in by roll call, meaning all 435 members don’t vote on many of the bills.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
I thought administration was the running of the office. The Xerox machine. Paying bills.
Lesley Stahl
When you live the life of a comedian, it’s such a state of arrested development. I can’t deal with anything very maturely. I’m still really bad at paying bills or doing anything that would be considered semi-adult. I’m really bad at it. It’s weird I can create and run a TV show, but I can’t pay my phone bill.
Nick Swardson
Europeans are easily offended by errors in their titles or full names. Their exasperation is equal to that shown by Americans when the department store fouls up their bills.
Letitia Baldrige
If you are making money writing, you are doing great. If you can support yourself writing, you are a success. I don’t care if you’re writing textbooks or Pulitzer Prize-winning articles for weighty publications of world renown: If you’re writing and it’s paying the bills, consider yourself a successful writer.
Julie Klausner
A lot of talented actors still have to pay their bills.
Mark Wahlberg
I love the stage, I love the process of acting in theatre, but unfortunately, it doesn’t pay the bills.
Kabir Bedi
The U.S. Senate does not allow legislative provisions to be included in appropriations bills, for much the same reason that most Americans are concerned about earmarks: it creates a slippery slope by which lobbyists and special interest groups can sneak provisions into large, must-pass legislation.
Ron Wyden
My family and I are just regular folks, just trying to get through the day and do the best you can and pay the bills, and that’s who we’re singing to.

Chris Sununu
Since the big band started I’m just always swamped with movies and things. It certainly pays the bills and it’s very satisfying, because I get to write all these big charts and all this crazy music.
Brian Setzer
The designs of the paper euros, introduced in 2002, proclaim a utopian aspiration. Gone are the colorful bills of particular nations, featuring pictures of national heroes of statecraft, culture and the arts, pictures celebrating unique national narratives. With the euro, 16 nations have said goodbye to all that.
George Will
Just like families must live within their budgets, the Federal Government must live within its means. We have passed appropriations bills that have been fiscally responsible while recognizing our national priorities.
Dennis Hastert
I’ll admit, sometimes I’ve paid the bills with acting. You know the phrase, ‘It’s one for the money, two for the showreel.’ I don’t want that as a director. I don’t want to compromise myself. There’s a big old wide world out there. I want to explore it.
Paddy Considine
I come from a simple background, so I couldn’t call my father and say, ‘Come pay my bills,’ so I had to get out there and work.
Camila Alves
It’s God’s will for you to live in prosperity instead of poverty. It’s God’s will for you to pay your bills and not be in debt.
Joel Osteen
We do not need mindless spending bills with no reforms attached.
Paul Gosar
F.D.R. had an economic crisis of unprecedented proportions in 1933 when he drove 15 major bills through the Congress, and super majorities in the House and the Senate in 1935 when he won passage of Social Security.
Robert Dallek
My husband gave up all his work to stay at home with the kids, and we split all the duties at home. I do all the boring stuff – like pay the bills, and he does all the exercising for both of us, which I’m very grateful for… I thank him for it regularly.
Erika Slezak
When I was younger, trying to afford football camps, my parents would sometimes have to miss bills. They sacrificed these things for me because they saw I had a goal.
Myron Rolle
In every union roles are assumed, some traditional, some not. My husband used to pay his own bills, I used to call my own repairman. But as marriages progress, you surrender areas of your own competence, often without even knowing it.
Ayelet Waldman
I wanted to build up a little nest egg and go back to L.A. and choose roles that I wanted to do instead of roles that I had to do to pay the bills.
Estella Warren
Clean energy isn’t just good for the planet; it’s good for consumers’ monthly utility bills and for the economy.
Kevin de Leon
Once you start getting big roles as an actor, everything pays. So what are you making decisions on? It’s about the director or the script or whatever. But before you reach that point, you’re taking jobs with, say, a theater company, in spite of the fact that it’s not paying your bills.
Chadwick Boseman
TV directing is fine because you can come in and do a TV show in a relatively short period of time, and that can pay the bills.
John Polson
A lot of the times, I end up having to do jobs to sort of pay the bills.
Casey Affleck
We need to make sure middle-class people are able to pay the bills. We need to make sure that poor people don’t starve. Those are values, too.
Chuck Schumer
If I can pay the bills, I’m happy.
Morgan Wootten
For far too long, America has been without a comprehensive energy plan, and today consumers are paying the price – literally – at the pump and in their heating bills.
Chris Chocola
I’m not being cynical, but I have to find work that is allowing me to pay bills and keep our lives going in a way that we’re used to and trying not to betray my political beliefs while I’m doing it. Listen, it’s a tough thing to do.
Thandie Newton
The only introduction to sports that I had before meeting my husband was Buffalo Bills football and Doug Flutely Flakes. My dad grew up in Buffalo and has been a Bills fan all his life.
Ayesha Curry
Ah, the power of two. There’s nothing quite like it. Especially when it comes to paying utility bills, parenting, cooking elaborate meals, purchasing a grown-up bed, jumping rope and lifting heavy machinery. The world favours pairs. Who wants to waste the wood building an ark for singletons?
Sloane Crosley
You just hope that you will get the opportunity to do what you love and pay your bills, and that is being a success as an actor.
Debra Messing
In 2014, with the help of Donald Trump, my friend Chuck Sonntag and I got a group of Big Tree Boys together to organize fans to help keep the Bills in Buffalo. We started Bills Fan Thunder, and we played a small public role in saving our team.
Michael Caputo
Home Star is a common sense idea that would create jobs and provide a boost to local economies, while helping families afford their energy bills. By encouraging homeowners to invest in energy efficiency retrofits, Home Star would create 170,000 manufacturing and construction jobs that could not be outsourced to China.
Peter Welch
We should not allow wealthy people, including corporate criminals, to hide their assets and avoid paying their bills.
Jim Talent
If I can transport audiences for the three or four hours they’re at the opera, to make them forget all of their worries, the bills they have to pay and all that, then I’ve done my job. That, for me, is very gratifying.
Sondra Radvanovsky
I pay all my own bills… I want to choose the man. I do not permit men to choose me.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
When you don’t get a certain quality of work, you end up doing lesser quality of work because there’s no work. I’m a professional actor, I have bills to pay so I end up taking work which ideally I wouldn’t have.
Ranvir Shorey
It’s a tough life being a pop star. You know, at the end of the day when you’ve paid all the bills and put the kids through college and that, you know, there’s only enough left for a small island off the South Pacific.
Larry Mullen, Jr.
When I go on vacation, I leave my house in total order: bills paid, garbage out, no milk in the refrigerator, mail done so that I can better negotiate what will await me.
Judy Sheindlin
I was broke from 19 to 26, borrowing money from my parents or my brothers or sisters every week to pay the bills.
Chelsea Handler
Any time you are in a position where your peers plus the people who paid your bills all your life are honoring you, it doesn’t get a hell of a lot better than that.
Harley Race
Even though I love pro wrestling and love MMA, I’m here because I have to pay those bills. I’m here to make money; nothing comes free.
Alberto Del Rio
I have carried bills concerning Sudan. I’ve carried bills concerning Congo. I’ve carried bills concerning North Korea and Iran and Iraq.
Sam Brownback
When I was sworn in, we had Republican-sponsored climate-change bills all over the place. You had John McCain running for President in 2008 on a strong climate platform. You could see American democracy actually starting to work at solving a difficult problem.
Sheldon Whitehouse
Mum did a lot of commercial theatre and farces in the 1980s and ’90s to make sure the school bills were paid.
Benedict Cumberbatch
I am one of those artists who knows where their money is. I pay my bills; I take care of my mama. I handle my business. I am a businessman. I go to meetings and take care of things, so it’s a lot more than just partying and turning up.
Juicy J
Everybody is looking for that chiseled guy. Just because they have a lot of muscles, they think he’s the strongest guy out there, this and that. Lucky for me, the skills pay the bills.
Andy Ruiz Jr.
Anyone who is awake and aware knows that these quote-unquote bathroom bills or any legislation discriminating against LGBTQ citizens is horrible.
Jack Antonoff
I will sign pro life bills. But what people are interested in is what we can do to create jobs, grow the economy, and keep our costs under control.
Sam Brownback
Working 16-hour days to ensure that I can pay my bills has been a bulk of my entrepreneurship life. And on days when I don’t, odds are I’m running to the airport.
Luvvie Ajayi
No one should have to choose between caring for their family when they need it most, and paying their bills.
Ned Lamont
There are so many of us that just do things to pay bills, but I never wanted that to be me.
Mehcad Brooks
Everybody sees the Bills fans and how crazy they can be. But they use that craziness for good.
Andy Dalton
Modeling is not a passion of mine. I have been having fun with it, but it’s just to pay the bills.
Dylan Penn
Your goal should be to pay off your credit card bills in full at the end of each month and set aside money toward your emergency savings.
Suze Orman
I worked at a jewelry store to pay the bills when I first moved to N.Y.C., and I always loved the phrase ‘Semi Precious.’ So I wanted to just call the band Semi Precious, but my dad told it was kinda sissy, so I added Weapons.
Justin Tranter
I know a lot of people might not be used to that – the Bills having a winning mentality. But that’s what Sean McDermott has brought to this franchise. Winning habits. A Winning attitude.
LeSean McCoy
When you pay a hospital bill, you’re really paying two hospital bills – one bill for you because you have a job and/or insurance and can pay the hospital. and another bill, which is tacked onto your bill, to cover the medical expenses of someone who doesn’t have a job and/or insurance and can’t pay the hospital.
P. J. O’Rourke
No Americans wants to see somebody lose their house because of health bills. Their boat? Maybe. Maybe the boat. But not the house.
P. J. O’Rourke
The world is completely revolutionized, so we’re told, and so the logic goes that governments can just print money to pay their bills and there’ll be no consequences. It’s insane.
Pierre Poilievre
Thousands of Ohio families are going deeper and deeper in debt just trying to pay their heating bills, fill prescriptions, and buy groceries. The current minimum wage is simply not enough.
Sherrod Brown
I think at the end of the day we have to raise the debt ceiling, because America pays its bills.
Terri Sewell
The decisions MPs make as our representatives affect every aspect of our daily lives, from energy bills to the quality of our hospitals, schools and emergency services.
Gina Miller
Being rich would be disastrous for me as a writer. I have always needed to write to pay the bills.
Simon Beaufoy
I’m a working mother… You try to pay the bills, you try to keep your life going and there’s pressure.
Carnie Wilson
Having been governor of New Mexico, I know that legislation gets passed to benefit those who have money and influence. Then they buy more money and influence. That’s one reason why, as governor, I vetoed more than 750 bills and thousands of line items. I did it to keep crony capitalism away from government.
Gary Johnson
The life of a singer is you have to pay your bills. You have to take a gig.
Judith Hill
There is nothing wrong with your marriage if you’re dealing with bills and kids and the broken garbage disposal and in-laws and work demands. That’s a normal marriage.
Phil McGraw
In a world where you graduate with a theater degree from college, you gotta find your bread job. You gotta find that job to pay the bills.
Natasha Rothwell
I’m one of the few adults lucky enough to love their job. And when you’ve got bills to pay, you get on with it! I like challenges.
Malorie Blackman
I did criminal defense work part-time, and that paid the bills for representing abused and neglected children… and for defending in juvenile court those kids the ‘child protective system’ had missed when it had the chance.
Andrew Vachss
When you grow up middle class, you just always feel like you’ve got to be working, or you won’t be able to pay the bills.
Anna Kendrick
Consumers don’t need to be forced to pay billions for so-called smart technology to know how to reduce their utility bills. We know to turn down the heat or air conditioning and shut off the lights.
Lisa Madigan
You’ve got to pay the bills, and you want to get your foot in. The great shows usually aren’t going to look for somebody completely untested, so you have to kind of get your feet wet doing other shows.
Mike Scully
It wasn’t so long ago that I was a working mom myself. And I know that sometimes, much as we all hate to admit it, it’s just easier to park the kids in front of the TV for a few hours, so we can pay the bills or do the laundry or just have some peace and quiet for a change.
Michelle Obama
I wanted to be an independent woman, a woman who could pay for her bills, a woman who could run her own life – and I became that woman.
Diane von Furstenberg
I like to be able to go out to dinner once in a while. I like to be able to drive my MG up the McKenzie River on a weekday afternoon. I like to be able to pay my bills on time.
Steve Prefontaine
I find my best writing time is actually 6 A.M., before the detritus of the day – the fish fingers and the school uniform and dogs and bills – have had a chance to clog up my brain. I can usually get 500 words done before 7 A.M. But it is difficult, and the Internet, and social networking, are terrible timesucks.
Jojo Moyes
Theater was always in the backdrop. Nursing was a way to pay the bills. I wasn’t a nurse; I had a nursing agency.
Lee Daniels
These kids understood what is not immediately obvious; that they were going to pay the bills for tax cuts that had been passed today or in the last 4 years, and for the war in Iraq, because essentially we are borrowing money to do those things.
Tom Allen
I’m from Texas, so I’m an LBJ fan. He passed more civil-rights bills than any other president. He made a mistake in Vietnam, but who didn’t?
Barbara Barrie
I’ve been chasing some paychecks. Modeling. I don’t discriminate against paychecks. I’ve got to pay the bills.
Luke Rockhold
I certainly did not envisage making a Disney movie. The most I hoped for was to be able to pay my bills. I was not a go-getter. I was very type-B.
David Lowery
I’m just making music, and I’m paying my bills.
I could count my modeling jobs on my hands and toes. When I graduated from college, I moved to New York specifically to study acting, and I needed to pay the bills, and it’s better to make a couple thousand dollars in one day than to wait tables six days a week.
William Baldwin
I was inspired to do anything I could to get out of what I was doing… today, I’m motivated to pay the bills.
Terry Zwigoff
We need to expand opportunities for more families to reap the benefits of using cleaner sources of energy that can also help households save money on their utility bills.
Brian Deese
At a time of economic recession, the need for Medicaid and other safety net services is even greater. And we don’t want to raise taxes on people who are having a tough time paying their bills.
James Douglas
We don’t spend money properly in Washington, D.C. We jump these massive bills to massive bills.
Mick Mulvaney
The premise of my whole campaign has been not that people need to believe what I say to them, but they need to look at what I have done. And what I have done in the state of Nevada, I have voted over a 100 times against tax and fee increases, poor public policy, and unconstitutional bills.
Sharron Angle
I want to go back to college for sure! Who doesn’t, right? All your bills are paid for. You’re there with all of your friends.
Julie Foudy
During the struggles, the one thing I remember was the continued support from my wife. I was running up phone bills and did all kinds of things to begin the process. When times were bad we bought food with credit cards. We had bill collectors calling. We maneuvered through this together.
David Steward
For a number of major companies, if you can’t access the commercial markets, you can’t fund your business. That’s a big problem. You can’t pay your bills.
Kenneth Chenault
Horror films are the ones that pay the bills, and historically, they have shown that they are good investments. They helped Universal survive with that initial splash of horror films in the 1930s and ’40s. And horror films kept New Line alive with the ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ series.
Christopher Young
I know what not being able to pay your bills feels like real well… I know that way better than a room full of beautiful people and Tony awards and Grammy awards.
Leslie Odom, Jr.
As I’ve long said, the farm bill is in need of major reform. At first chance, I voted to remove direct payments. Both the House and the Senate passed bills that end direct payments, and as we move forward, I hope we can work out the rest of the issues to implement the necessary reforms.
Stephen Fincher
As a doctor, I saw firsthand the problems many patients face finding a doctor, navigating the system, and paying their health care bills.
Charles Boustany
I didn’t publish my book until I was 37. So the ability to pay my bills, pay my rent, make a life for myself, and become a working writer was a puzzle that took me a while to solve.
Leigh Bardugo
Teaching theater, I felt very lucky. In a world where there’s few options for someone who graduates with a theater degree, trying to figure out how to make rent and pay the bills, I always gravitated towards teaching jobs and things like that. I wanted to stay close to my passion as well.
Natasha Rothwell
I know where my bills get paid from, and that’s God!
My grandmother Izzy taught me to balance her checkbook when I was 6 years old. She would sign the checks after I paid the bills. I had a chuckle with my grandmother recently on how ‘unbalanced’ her checkbook must have been years ago.
Mary Callahan Erdoes
I remember, when we first got married, the only money we had was what was in Chip’s pocket. He always had a wad of cash, but we were broke. If I needed to go grocery shopping, it’s whatever was in his pocket. That’s how we paid the bills.
Joanna Gaines
There’s a foot race between gas bills and paychecks.
Jerry A. Webman
How am I supposed to pay my bills? I can’t get a regular job because I have been accused of being a Nazi. Am I supposed to be homeless?
Laura Loomer
Commercial success certainly helps pay the bills.
Gina Schock
It’s not easy cutting welfare bills. It’s not easy cutting the deficit.
George Osborne
The United States Postal Service has a problem. People aren’t sending as much mail as they used to. That means less postage revenue and difficulty paying the bills.
Matthew Yglesias
When I die, my epitaph should read: She Paid the Bills. That’s the story of my private life.
Gloria Swanson
Men are sent into the world with bills of credit, and seldom draw to their full extent.
Horace Walpole
This is how I feel about horror films: there’s enough scary things that happen in day-to-day life. Sometimes just going and getting the mail is scary, when you open your bills. And so, sometimes I feel like scary movies are just tapping into those anxieties and magnifying them.
Josh Hamilton
I’m not a young kid struggling to get to the top. I’ve been to the top. I gotta look out for my best interests as a businessman in this fight game. At the end of the day, it is a business. I’ve got children to take care of; I’ve got bills to pay.
Tito Ortiz
Rather than negotiating yet another continuing resolution at the last minute, the appropriations process should work as it was originally designed, with appropriations bills passing the House and the Senate and being signed into law by the president, after robust debate, with a process for amendments.
Tom Graves
I go on expeditions for the same reason an estate agent sells houses – to pay the bills.
Ranulph Fiennes
When Demetrie got sick, we knew it was our responsibility to take care of her and pay her medical bills. And we embraced that. But the tricky part is, like so many families in the South, we also expected her to use a separate bathroom, to use separate utensils.
Kathryn Stockett
You work for the WNBA. Obviously, they want us to prioritize the WNBA as being No. 1 on our list, but the reality is other people are paying the bills. That’s the way it is.
Diana Taurasi
We’ll keep sending more and more conservatives to Washington, and we’ll eventually get these bills passed. But don’t be afraid to pass good, strong, conservative legislation.
John Fleming
I can pay the bills doing what I love, and Im able to fish; Ive got a really wonderful life. And if people still see me as a heart-throb, great.
Robson Green
No dog means no disgusting surprises on carpets – thank goodness for those irrigating vacuums they sell at Canadian Tire – no hefty vet bills, no destruction of everything from eyeglasses to baseboards to legs of furniture, and no responsibility.
Neil Macdonald
I am certain more emergency supplemental bills will be needed before this process is concluded. In fact, there is a point I have repeated several times recently which keeps the enormity of this situation in perspective.
Jo Bonner
I’m not a fan of giving to charities. I have a few I support, but the overhead and inefficiencies really bother me. Instead, I pay people’s bills and help solve problems.
Mark Cuban
Congress must do what we said we would and find ways to pay for bills we propose so we don’t leave future generations mired in debt.
Sharice Davids
I’ve been married for 46 years, and I live in a nice house, my grass is always cut, I pay my bills, and my cat loves me!
Christopher Walken
Every time I go to the dentist they say, ‘You really need to fix that gap of yours’. I’m like, ‘My gap is paying your dentist bills.’
Lara Stone
When we talk about the kind of folks whose lives will be made better by raising the minimum wage, we’re not talking about a couple teenagers earning extra spending money to supplement their allowance. We’re talking about providers and breadwinners. Working Americans with bills to pay and mouths to feed.
Tom Perez
The Farm Bill is one of the only bills that provides substantial deficit reduction that passed the Senate this year. It only makes sense that this deficit reduction bill would be included in a larger deficit reduction agreement.
Debbie Stabenow
The president is under no obligation to sign the spending bills that Congress gives to him. And once that happens, once he says no, then you’re supposed to negotiate.
Dan Crenshaw
Well, first of all, let’s go right to it. We’re going to balance the budget. We should live within our own means, and we should read the bills and work with the American people.
Jeff Sessions
If House Republicans can’t get border security right, who will trust them on the other bills?
Tom Tancredo
While incarcerated, I had no bank statements, no bills, no credit history. In our interconnected world of big data, I appeared to be no different than a deceased person.
Chelsea Manning
I support the Second Amendment. But for God’s sake – how can we knowingly pass bills and laws that are in direct opposition to saving kids’ lives?
David Hogg
When the writing is going really well, whole days and weeks go by, and I suddenly realise I have all these unpaid bills and, my God, I haven’t unpacked, and the suitcase has been sitting there for three weeks.
George R. R. Martin
Bills should go through committee.
Mitch McConnell
I’ve had the luxury of owning my own studio, 24 analogue, 48 digital, endless effects, endless hardcore gear, that I don’t have to rent, I don’t get stuck with the bills, it’s all mine.
Billy Sherwood
I love long-jumping, and if I’m granted the opportunity without repercussions, then I will pursue it further, but I’m obligated to Buffalo Bills football and that’s the main focus.
Marquise Goodwin
The typical minimum wage earner is a provider and a breadwinner – most likely a woman – responsible for paying bills, running a household and raising children.
Tom Perez
I want to see families with lower energy bills.
George Osborne
It turns out that American Express honors recurring payments even if the vendor is unable to supply an accurate card number and expiration date. An Amex phone representative said this is a feature, not a bug, which makes sure my bills are paid.
Barton Gellman
I think commercials are something that everyone does to get out there and get a little bit of exposure, get their feet wet, and also pay the bills. So anytime you can be a part of a wonderful, fun commercial, that’s just a bonus.
Isaiah Mustafa
In removing the friction involved in paying bills, electronic billing has substantially increased the friction involved in not paying them.
Timothy Noah
Originally my entire goal with music was for it to be my job. When I sit down to make a beat, I wanna know that I’m gonna get paid from it, and that I can pay my bills and still have money left over to be a person.
You know, as fiction writers, if our instincts are off, we can’t pay our bills.
Lorrie Moore
As congressional Republicans and the Trump administration continue to attack the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it came as no surprise that the House voted on two bills that would weaken emissions standards and, as a result, put our public health at risk.
Seth Moulton
No one will pay you for planning an expedition at first: you have to work in pubs at weekends so you can pay the gas bills. I joined the Territorial Army, which paid me when I turned up to drill nights, and so did my wife.
Ranulph Fiennes
I don’t believe we are supposed to go through life defeated and not having enough money to pay our bills or send our kids to college.
Joel Osteen
I’ve forgotten the birthdays of everyone close to me. I have forgotten to pay bills, file tax returns on time, go to meetings, and, every week, I forget to put the bins out. But I have never forgotten I want my lunch.
John Niven
I just felt like I couldn’t deal with the everyday responsibilities of life, paying bills and all of that. I’m terrible at all of that. So I knew I had to make enough money to pay someone else to deal with all of that.
Lily Allen
My parents had no money, but they had strong values that I’ve carried throughout my life – things like not going into debt, never borrowing money, never leveraging, paying your bills on time, keeping your agreements, selling customers the right things, treating employees right, and growing things.
Jack Dangermond
I don’t use any real vintage hardware any longer. That’s always been the object as far as gaining control of the studio environment, going back to when I built my first studio, Secret Sound, in New York City. The whole point was to not have to pay studio bills anymore and not be looking at the clock.
Todd Rundgren
One of the things I give Nancy Pelosi a lot of credit for is that she’s able to get things passed and hold her members together because she shows us that she’s doing everything possible to get our views into these bills.
Peter Welch
For the vast majority of Americans who work hard and play by the rules, paying the bills may be hard some months, but it’s something we always do.
Ami Bera
In an age of reckonings, when so many bills have come due, Obama has made the case for an America that can no longer do it all. It must pick its fights.
David E. Sanger
There is no such thing as a ‘free’ government benefit. Ask small-business owners who are footing skyrocketing bills for bottomless jobless benefits.
Michelle Malkin
Bullying is not going to make your mom proud. It’s not going to pay your bills. It’s nothing to be proud of.
DeSean Jackson
Tax reform shouldn’t add one penny to our deficit or to the tax bills of middle-class Americans.
Dianne Feinstein
When we are asked to bail out corporations and banks, or pass tax bills that shift billions in public dollars out of government, we must ask ourselves, who were we truly sent here to advocate for?
Rashida Tlaib
I think you have lots of actors who would much rather do a wonderful part at the Royal Shakespeare Company, but then you have to take a two-line part in a TV thing to pay the bills.
Morfydd Clark
In the Mac vs. PC ads, Apple bills itself as the antidote to Microsoft. To love Apple wasn’t to sell out. It was to buy in. Most people use PCs, but Apple has the mindshare.
Wesley Morris
It is essential that we stop worrying about money and stop resenting our bills.
Louise L. Hay
The major material advantage, financial advantage from having a reserve currency is that between 200 and 300 billion dollar bills, that may be twenty, fifty, hundred dollar bills as well as ones, exist in the world – a lot of them in Russia as you all know I’m sure.
Robert C. Solomon
I am very abnormal… But it wasn’t very long ago that I wasn’t so abnormal. I was very normal and headed for a lifetime of paying medical bills as proof of my normalcy.
Dirk Benedict
Theatre is great, but we don’t live in an idealistic world, and we have to pay our bills.
Randeep Hooda
They’ll always find somebody for me to fight. Whether I win or lose, they’ll find somebody to fight, and I’ll compete. I’ll make money, and I’ll pay my bills.
Demetrious Johnson
The truth is Mr. Trump could simply sit in the Oval Office for four years like a potted plant, and that would be a vast improvement over the Obama agenda, which was almost in every case – from tax increases to spending stimulus bills to Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, the war on fossil fuels, and so on – bad for growth.
Stephen Moore
I wish the media and people that work in media would realize sometimes – and I know it doesn’t pay your bills – but sometimes just sit back and think, like, ‘Man, what if this was my child? And somebody was doing this to them? And they had to go through it? If somebody bashed them like this?’
Allen Iverson
College, by far, was the best time of my life. Just being able to go there right now and not worry about paying bills and all that and just having fun.
Markelle Fultz
I was a writer for hire. I wrote to pay the bills.
Damien Chazelle
You got to pick one – pay your medical bills or pay the mortgage. Most people can’t do both, and I’m no different.
Levon Helm
If you fill your Agriculture Committee with representatives of commodity farmers, and you don’t have urbanites, you don’t represent eaters, okay? You don’t have people from New York City on these committees, you are going to end up with the kind of farm bills we have: a piece of special interest legislation.
Michael Pollan
My parents have a pawnshop in Downtown Las Vegas for quite awhile. I grew up seeing people come in and want – need – money so they could go and gamble again or so they could pay their bills or whatever reason, and try and sell items that were of value to them.
Charles Bock
I remember my mother and I sitting down counting off our pennies to pay our bills. We really had nothing.
Diana DeGarmo
I think most people think that a spiritual path or growing spiritually means that all of a sudden you’ll be able to forecast the six lotto numbers and all your bills will be paid.
Iyanla Vanzant
I find the difference, for me, between having no money and having quite a bit is that the bills get bigger. And that’s it. The lifestyle doesn’t change.
Douglas Adams
I have to look after my life, my kids, their school, their doctor, my house, my phone and electric bills.
Shweta Tiwari
If you’ve got a mortgage, and you’ve got bills to pay, you might tend to do some stupid things.
Roy Nelson
I had a job to take care of my parents, to take care of some bills at the house, because my daddy wasn’t working. I had to figure out how to make that all work at one time. I was working at Boston Market… I told my coach, ‘I can’t play football because I have to make money to help my mom.’
Jason Pierre-Paul
We women feel we are here to serve. That’s the mistake we make. We may have children, husbands, lovers, bills, responsibility. Those things don’t own us, but too often we let them.
Susan L. Taylor
You just have to keep at it and budget yourself; be prudent. It’s art, so you really don’t go into it to make a zillion dollars, but there’s definitely bills to pay, and I want everyone in the band to have a salary and whatever they need.
Cindy Wilson
I love doing theater. Despite the fact that out of theater, film, and TV, theater is the hardest thing to do. It’s the least paid, and we all have these bills that we have to pay.
Joe Morton
People tend to put entertainers on pedestals. We’re human beings, just like you. You may see us smiling, and whether we have money or not, we still have bills to pay, we still have our stresses. I think a lot of people want to focus on others’ shortcomings to make themselves feel better. And it’s a very sad thing.
Janet Jackson
There are lots of families who – who make irresponsible purchases. There are also a lot of families who have debt on credit cards because they use those credit cards to pay for medical bills.
Elizabeth Warren
I still do commercial work as an actor, which I love, because it’s very quick, and it definitely pays my bills.
Felicia Day
I’ll probably have to open a recording studio at some point because I won’t be able to pay the bills.
Mac DeMarco
Seeing states like North Carolina enacting these bathroom bills that are banning transgender individuals from using the restrooms they identify as… it’s complete discrimination.
Jazz Jennings
I work ’cause I have to pay the bills. But I also work ’cause I love it. I don’t know what I’d do with me if I didn’t have this work. It’s what I’ve done all my life. It’s my motivation. It’s my satisfaction. It’s my joy to stand in front of an audience to sing, to come back home and write songs. Man, it’s amazing for me.
Al Jarreau
On New Year’s Day 2008 I had two bailiffs turn up on my doorstep and because I had so little income I had not been paying bills, and I respect the concept of paying bills, I’m very much in favour of it, I just couldn’t quite get it together.
Anne Hegerty
It’s nice to know there’s a way to pay the bills other than third-and-8 and getting your bell rung.

Matt Riddle
If poor people are spending their own money, it is amazing how fast they will figure out how to keep a lid on medical bills.
Rick Scott
I love luxury, I love the high life, and I have to foot the bills – I have received practically nothing from my marriages and relationships.
Britt Ekland
Anything to do with children, sign me up! I work a lot with St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, which is an incredible hospital in Memphis that treats children with cancer for no charge whatsoever, including the families’ lodging and all of their bills.
Lily Aldridge
I’d been in Hollywood for five years before I started writing ‘The Guild.’ I worked enough to pay all my bills. So I was very lucky in that respect. Most people don’t make a living acting.
Felicia Day
I’ve got favorite sweatshirts and my Buffalo Bills sweatshirts that I’ve had for years. I will never abandon them. They are my pride and joy.

One of the first bills I introduced in Congress was the Be Open Act, legislation to help ease an unnecessary, duplicative and punitive burden placed on employees and employers under the Affordable Care Act.
Elise Stefanik
It is only by not paying one’s bills that one can hope to live in the memory of the commercial classes.

Many families teeter on the edges, not qualifying for the little support on offer, unwilling to seek it for fear of drawing attention to a household barely holding the pieces together, or hit by unexpected bills.
Jack Monroe
I try to keep in mind that it’s a long journey. It’s not a race. It’s about staying focused, continuing to do good work, make my family and community proud; that’s all I really want to do… and pay my bills.
Gina Rodriguez
I’ve been able to pay the bills. I’ve been able to pay off my student loans. I was a homeowner before anything happened in the larger public eye.
Sterling K. Brown
My great-grandmother lived to be 100 years old, so I got to know her. She always sent us birthday cards that had $2 bills inside – we kept them for good luck.
Dana Perino
Anna Deavere Smith’s new one-woman show bills itself as being about health care, but the truth is that ‘Let Me Down Easy’ is mostly about the grimmer subject of death and dying.
Terry Teachout
People get into debt head over heels because banks make it so easy to do so. Then the banks come along and act like these people who can’t or won’t pay their bills are the dregs of society.
Jonathan Raymond
When I was much younger, I sometimes felt rejected by feminists because of an image that I sold because it paid the bills. Any fool could tell my hair is dyed.

Paul Gosar
I guess to long story short it, I was really just working day jobs when I moved to New York and trying to pay the bills, working in restaurants and as a receptionist, and at one of those reception jobs, I just got so bored, I started a blog, honing my writing skills a little bit.
