My late wife Olympia was Goan and I’ve been to India many times. I love the food there.

Every time I’ve done comedy in, like, traditional comedy clubs, there’s always these comedians that do really well with audiences but that the other comedians hate because they’re just, you know, doing kind of cheap stuff like dancing around or doing, like, very kind of base sex humor a lot, and stuff like that.

The United States has the best, deepest, widest, and most transparent capital markets in the world which give you, the investor, the ability to buy and sell large amounts at very cheap prices. That is a good thing.

A lot of women these days, a lot of young women don’t want to call themselves feminists. You have this cheap, hideous ‘girl power’ sort of fad, which I think is pretty benign at best, but at worst, I think it’s a way of taking the politics out of feminism and making it some kind of fashion.
In high school, during marathon phone conversations, cheap pizza dinners and long suburban car rides, I began to fall for boys because of who they actually were, or at least who I thought they might become.

But when I got into my teens, I didn’t have money. And then, getting into my early 20s, I still didn’t have money. And charity shops would be a great place for me to get cheap clothes.
When I was 14, I bought myself a cheap electric guitar and tried to teach myself.
There’s so little representation of people who look like me behind the camera that it makes you want to say yes to any opportunity out of desperation. It puts you in a situation where you can’t make your best work. Diversity for cheap.
In the universities, cheap, vulnerable labor means adjuncts and graduate students.
Almost everyone wears rubber on their feet these days, but there was a time when it was considered cheap. Luxury shoes had leather soles, which were rigid and heavy.

I would caution against fueling cheap populism. First of all, every German who has spent a vacation in Greece knows that the standard of living there isn’t higher than it is in Germany. Second, Greece is paying a high price for European assistance.
The genius idea of industrialism was the concept of the Model T: In exchange for something cheap and well-made, we’d forgo unique, lovely design.

The tricky part is the follow-through: making good ones work, making the best out of the raw material!
Fake news is cheap to produce. Genuine journalism is expensive.
No one wants growth, constant expansion, physical swelling. Growth is not a human value; it’s a means to the ends of sufficiency and security. Once we have enough, no one wants more, unless it is sold to us as a cheap substitute for something else, something non-material.
The library, with its Daedalian labyrinth, mysterious hush, and faintly ominous aroma of knowledge, has been replaced by the computer’s cheap glow, pesky chirp, and data spillage.

I certainly could’ve made a lot more money buying cheap ingredients, and people might not have been able to tell the difference. That was never a part of the calculus. It was not part of my DNA.

Hollywood don’t always pay a lot of money. Because we’re English they think we’re cheap!

VR is going to become something mainstream, but it’s not going to happen right away. You just don’t have the horsepower to make it happen on a device, much less a cheap enough and comfortable enough device that a normal consumer is going to want to have.

I just want to clear something up… vintage doesn’t mean cheap.
One nice thing about the benefit of long experience with la frontera is that we in Texas don’t have to run around getting all hysterical about immigrants. The border is porous. When you want cheap labor, you open it up; when you don’t, you shut it down. It works to our benefit – it always has.

I have to admit that I really don’t care for horror movies all that much. I think mainly just because I’m a cheap scare.
My second business would have succeeded but for competitors’ jealousy. I was selling motorbike gear cheap, but the people I was undercutting complained to the manufacturer and cut off my supply. It showed me how corrupt business can be. When I sold phones, the same thing happened, but this time I was ready.
Not just in commerce but in the world of ideas too our age is putting on a veritable clearance sale. Everything can be had so dirt cheap that one begins to wonder whether in the end anyone will want to make a bid.

And all the consumers are the same: they want new things, they want cheap things, they want good things, they want unique things. If we can create these kind of things for consumers, they will come.

When you turn your life over to God, you don’t give up the drama; you give up the cheap drama.
When I was a kid, every field trip was to some Roman fort because it was cheap and free.

But British aristocrats didn’t care a damn about what people thought of them, so they made humour acceptable.
Ideas are cheap and easy, and there are a lot of them.
More negatives write than call. It’s a cheap shot for me to go on the air with the critical letters or E-mail I get because the reaction of the listeners is always an instantaneous expression of sympathy for me and contempt for the poor critic.
Fandom grew first through individual correspondence. It was cheap and quick, continent-wide contact for a penny stamp.

For the BBC and others, a free website is an obvious and relatively cheap addendum to their main purpose of streaming news and entertainment on screen to a mass audience.

I find it really cheap when people talk about an issue just for the sake of talking and are not making any difference to the actual situation.
I want to make the IKEA of clothes for fat girls and boys. Cheap, affordable, basic – but ethically made. Basics, you know? Like Spanx – I’m still confused as to why retailers haven’t ripped them off yet and done it well. It’s because they don’t understand the basics behind it. I love Spanx. I’m wearing ’em right now!
Writers and books are cheap dates, especially when you compare the cost of a book with a ticket to the opera – or an NHL game.

On the Internet, information from Indiana and India is equally cheap and easy to access.

I’ve been asked to say a couple of words about my husband, Fang. How about short and cheap?
As a kid in the eighties, I didn’t need much disposable income. I went to Catholic school – white shirt, plaid skirt – so fashion choices were limited. But youth finds a way.

Drawing was a cheap way for me to express myself. It gave a focus to my thinking and my life from a very early age.

Cash is not cheap. The physical infrastructure is not easy to maintain and cheap.
It is Trump who plays with the tax code to pay no taxes; it is Trump whose Trump-brand products are made overseas by cheap labor; it is Trump who hires undocumented workers from Poland to work on his projects, then refuses to pay them minimum wages.
I think e-mail is kind of a cheap way to communicate. It’s a lazy way of writing a letter, you know. I write a letter every now and then, you know, pick out somebody and drop them a line, because I always like receiving letters.
When I first started out and would go on pitch meetings, there was always this kind of eye-roll that would come with pitching a horror movie when you were dealing with the studios.

In Japan, Taiwan and South Korea, the government in a matter of years has put a lot of energy behind recycling food waste as livestock feed. It’s environmentally friendly, it provides cheap livestock feed for the farmers in those parts of the world, and it avoids sending the food waste to landfill.
Talk is cheap – except when Congress does it.
Both cheap value stocks and more glamorous growth stocks can work well in a portfolio – if done right.

And if you look at our paychecks and you look at child care, there goes our paycheck. How are we going to eat?
‘Anchorman’ was never supposed to be a popular, like, hit movie. That movie was a cheap movie – it felt like we were working on a weird independent comedy in a way.
I get my clothes from three sources: Target, thrift shops, and friends. It’s simple and it’s cheap.

Sometimes you get into fights if a teammate is getting taken advantage of, sometimes just from competing and you feel someone takes a cheap shot. It’s just the intensity. It’s an intense game, sometimes you just get too fired up and fights happen.
When all is said and done, cheap gas is an illusion, because our reliance on gas creates a whole series of costs that aren’t factored in to the pump price – among them congestion, pollution, and increased risk of accidents.
Shipping is so cheap that it makes more financial sense for Scottish cod to be sent 10,000 miles to China to be filleted, then sent back to Scottish shops and restaurants, than to pay Scottish filleters.
There is nothing wrong with eating sweets, fried foods, pastries, even drinking soda every now and then, but food manufacturers have made eating these formerly expensive and hard-to-make treats so cheap and easy that we’re eating them every day.

Stop trying to treat music like it’s a tennis shoe, something to be branded. If the music industry wants to save money, they should take a look at some of their six-figure executive expense accounts. All those lawsuits can’t be cheap, either.
Love is a special word, and I use it only when I mean it. You say the word too much and it becomes cheap.

A whole set of values comes with fast food: Everything should be fast, cheap and easy; there’s always more where that came from; there are no seasons; you shouldn’t be paid very much for preparing food. It’s uniformity and a lack of connection.
One must not make oneself cheap here – that is a cardinal point – or else one is done. Whoever is most impertinent has the best chance.

You know the illusion of the cheap money is over and now Britain has to go out there and graft and earn its way and create wealth and prosperity in a very competitive world.
The World’s Fair was the precursor to theme parks like Disneyworld, and the really sort of cheap, superficial promotional architecture that you see everywhere in the U.S. I think there’s a danger when you start creating a civilisation that isn’t meant to last.
I love beauty supply lip gloss. Any cheap, 99-cent lip gloss. I use it, it stays on all day. You can eat anything and it will still be on your lips. You can drink anything, it’s still on there.
I live like a scumbag, but it’s cheap.
CDs, too. Totally corporate. They look real cheap and soulless and they don’t smell of anything.

My first taste memory is of our nanny in South Africa making white bread sandwiches with salad cream, which was potato mashed with a cheap mayonnaise thing with bits in it of – I suppose – pickled cucumber. I absolutely loved them.
I never have broken up in comedy, ever. There’s something about me that I just don’t break on camera – maybe because I’m just so cheap, and I know how expensive it is to shoot – but I broke on ‘Sordid Lives,’ and I broke on ‘The Office.’ Those are the only two times in my life.
With PayPal, you have to send people over to their website… whereas with Stripe, we offer a way to integrate payments into the website, on the website or into a mobile app. That is what all the best businesses care about, so we make it very easy, very fast, very simple and very cheap to do this.
I’ve got a Ferrari 430. It’s black. I don’t know what it cost but it wasn’t cheap. I bought it because I was being a boy. It’s fast and looks good.
Even with cameras being very cheap, one thing that researchers noticed was that you look really bad in a videoconference image because the lighting is bad and you get shadows and things.
When I grew up, the thing boys would do during the summer is work tobacco because it was a cheap product back then. I didn’t want to do that. From an early, early, early age, I was like, ‘I like music. This performing thing comes easy.’ And perhaps that’s how I ended up doing what I’m doing today. Being a musician.
With a population of 1.4 billion, China is a lucrative market. But getting into that market isn’t cheap. At best, the price of doing business in China is silence; at worst, it’s reading talking points straight from the Chinese Communist Party. Beijing is not subtle about it.
I’m not a great one for classic horror or cheap thrills.
Ideas are cheap. Always be passionate about ideas and communicating those ideas and discoveries to others in the things you make.
So much of selling a film in the industry is about creating a fulcrum where all the pressure comes to bear, and something seems suddenly valuable and approved by an audience.

Accelerating technology innovations such as ubiquitous sensors, cheap computing power, and 5G networks will open entirely new opportunities and challenges.
If the price is very cheap then it’s almost certainly a fake.

At best, a 100-day measurement of a new presidency is a meaningless abstraction. At worst, it’s an invite to cheap politicking at the expense of the common good.
Reading books might itself be a bit weird, but obviously okay, since books were part of school, and doing well in school was clearly a good thing. But comics were more like candy, just flashy wrappers without any nourishment. Cheap thrills.
I’m very cheap. My friends hate me.
My album is called ‘Zero to Infinity’ and none of my songs are going to have cheap, dirty lyrics. Every song, in a way, is a women empowerment song. Every song, even if it’s a dance track, you’ll be dancing on it, but it’s the right thing.
Nobody disputes that cheap natural gas would be a good thing for the economy. The question is, is this a sustainable new development that can be counted on for decades to come, or simply a ‘bubble’ brought on by a land grab and drilling frenzy?
Politicians said that with our cheap labour, we could be competitive in the world. Nothing could be further from the truth. We were the most uncompetitive country with that cheap labour.
To me, it’s like, what’s good for me is good for Cheap Trick… and what’s good for Rick is good for Cheap Trick, and so on… and that’s the thing.
Societies tend to presume that poor people are unable to handle money. If they had any, people reason, the poor and homeless would probably spend it on fast food and cheap beer, not on fruit or education.
I ended up landing in London out of high school, and I saw a performance that Vanessa Redgrave gave, just because it was a cheap ticket, and I didn’t know what to do with my afternoon, and I went in, and I saw this Eugene O’Neill play, and I sat in the fifth row, and I watched her.
Food should be cheap, and labor should be cheap, and everything should be the same no matter where you go; whether it’s a McDonald’s in Germany or one in California, it should be the same. And this message is destroying cultures around the world. Needless to say, agriculture goes with it.
I sometimes clean my ears up to five times a day. Even having buds in the same room makes me want to have a go. When I’m in India, the cheap ones freak me out because I worry they’ll drop off inside my ear. In the U.K., I like Johnson’s.
Some women are smarter than men, and some aren’t. But to suggest to women that they deserve dominance instead of equality is at best a cheap applause line.
The first thing many tourists see in Hawaii is concrete – a long dreary stretch of it through landscapes dominated by sad, cheap apartment buildings and almost entirely denuded of plant life.
I started as a child, in this PBS series ‘Voyage of the Mimi,’ which led to driving down to New York for ‘Afterschool Special’ auditions, which led to moving to Los Angeles. I wanted to be an actor. But in L.A., I got into film technology, and I was building cheap editing systems and would edit my friend’s acting reels.
I love Goody’s Spin Pins. They’re super cheap and look like corkscrews. You just gather your hair and screw them into a bun.
