Palestinians also have a right not to have their homes

Palestinians also have a right not to have their homes demolished because an occupying power refuses to grant them a permit. Palestinian children should not be shot at or arrested in the middle of the night and interrogated by the Israeli military while terrified and isolated.
Layla Moran
On ‘Love Actually,’ I met Hugh Grant, who is a relative: our great-grandmothers were sisters. He’d call me cousin and ruffle my hair. And it was brilliant working with David Tennant on ‘Doctor Who.’
Thomas Brodie-Sangster
Lou Grant was pretty much always Lou Grant.
Mary Tyler Moore
At early previews, the theater gossips are there, wishing you ill every night. They don’t grant you any slack. Agents are in from Hollywood. Your friends are there. People who are going to spread the word-of-mouth. If something doesn’t work, everyone will know.
Peter Stone
If you look at movies with Cary Grant or Jimmy Stewart and all the rest of it, none of them looks like a boy. They always looked like mature men. The audience didn’t want to go and see kids.
Tom Conti
If even dying is to be made a social function, then, grant me the favor of sneaking out on tiptoe without disturbing the party.
Dag Hammarskjold
One of the most important tools in critical thinking about numbers is to grant yourself permission to generate wrong answers to mathematical problems you encounter. Deliberately wrong answers!

Celine Sciamma
God grant you the strength to fight off the temptations of surrender.
Walter Annenberg
Patience is the most necessary quality for business, many a man would rather you heard his story than grant his request.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
The amount of work that a for-profit has to do to get real money is minimal compared to the amount of work it takes a non-profit to get even a very small grant.
Leila Janah
In a time of serious budget deficits, immense war costs and a sluggish economy, we cannot afford to grant such outlandish subsidies to some of our Nation’s largest corporations.
Ron Kind
One does not read a poem by Gwendolyn Brooks with hopes that it will grant him a career in engineering; he does so because poetry helps him see something in the world that he might not have seen before.
Clint Smith
The scientist-community guy may get a $500,000 grant, and if his equipment works or doesn’t work, he still gets a gold star for doing the science experiment. For me, there is no merit in anything for doing an experiment; I have to go home with pictures.
James Balog
Dropping out of college was never the plan, but it made me eligible for the Peter Thiel Fellowship. I was the first Asian to win that grant!
Ritesh Agarwal
George Washington, Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, Zachary Taylor, Ulysses Grant, Rutherford Hayes, James Garfield, Benjamin Harrison, Theodore Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower all rode their wartime heroics into the White House.
Jeff Greenfield
I think all animals have souls. I feel certain that if we have souls, octopuses have souls, too. If you grant something a soul, it demands a certain level of sacredness. Look around us. The world is holy. It is full of souls.
Sy Montgomery
God grant you all your desires and accept my own hearty thanks for all your attention to me. Although indeed, those attentions have tried me more than death can now terrify me.
Jane Grey
I grew up in Harlem Grant projects, and I didn’t have a whole lot then. I’ve always been good about only getting what I need, not what I want. Just because someone else has something, I don’t feel the need to.
Keith Sweat
My favourite actors are all dead or dying. I just love Jimmy Stewart, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn – I was named after her – and Cary Grant. I just love old black and white movies and the stars in them. It must have been a great time to be in Hollywood.
Katharine Isabelle
In my own view, Hamas’s frustration derives from a lack of legitimization by Israel and by much of the world. It is this frustration that leads them to such destructive desperation. That’s why we need to grant them status as a legitimate enemy – before we talk about an agreement or, alternatively, about a frontal war.
A. B. Yehoshua
Heaven grant us patience with a man in love.
Rudyard Kipling
In my mind, I’m not scary at all. I’m channeling my inner Cary Grant!
Tony Todd
I’m not going to grant Bobby Green his wishes by fighting him and responding to his nonsense.
Donald Cerrone
Cary Grant and I were doing a play in New York. He had a crush on me. Whenever we went to a party, he would always sit on the floor beside me. I thought that was kind of beautiful, like that’s where he wanted to be.
Fay Wray
About once a decade, it becomes necessary to remind Americans again that Ulysses S. Grant was a great man, indeed a giant figure. The usual way to try to do this is by publishing a thumping big biography, and let me say that there is nothing wrong with this, although it still hasn’t worked.
Michael Korda
What happens once you get a felony conviction? Now you are entering this American caste system where you can’t get a job, you can’t get a loan, you can’t get a Pell grant, you can’t get public housing.
Cory Booker
One of the hardest things for me to do is watch myself. The first time I see it, I am obsessed with my left ear or my right ear or some other physical attribute, or the fact that I’m 60 or whatever shallow ego thought is running through my head. I’m just destroyed that I’m not Cary Grant or whatever.
Ted Danson
I could, I think, quite easily have gone to Oxford. I got four good A levels, but my father’s income was such that I wouldn’t have got a grant, and he wouldn’t let me go to university, and that was the end of it.
Colin Baker
With ‘Poison,’ I’m sure some people just hated the movie, but it also got caught up into a debate about arts funding because it was a film that received a National Endowment for the Arts Public Grant, and it won the prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
Todd Haynes
May it please Christ our Lord to grant us true humility and abnegation of will and judgment, so that we may deserve to begin to be His disciples.
Saint Ignatius
Grant me the treasure of sublime poverty: permit the distinctive sign of our order to be that it does not possess anything of its own beneath the sun, for the glory of your name, and that it have no other patrimony than begging.
Francis of Assisi
Modern conveniences grant us more free time to focus on spiritual needs and devote more time to personal service. But the basic element which should never change in the lives of righteous young women is giving service to others.
James E. Faust
Unless you’re Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant, there are few guys who can do comedy and drama.
Steve Guttenberg
The toughest fight I’ve ever had was T. J. Grant.
Johny Hendricks
I’ve always aspired to Cary Grant’s level of coolness and failed miserably.
Jason Priestley
I felt blessed by the existence of Horace Porter’s ‘Campaigning With Grant.’
Ron Chernow
Building a country that worked for everyone was supposed to be about supporting ordinary working class families, which is exactly what Labour’s plan to bring back the maintenance grant would do.
Angela Rayner
The Women’s Sports Foundation has empowered so many young girls and women across the U.S. I benefitted from WSF with a travel and training grant when I was 12 years old. It really helped my family financially.
Michelle Kwan
It’s traditionally not federal policy to fund state and local salaries. It’s done sometimes on a temporary basis or a grant basis. But it’s not often done. And the reason is clear, because the federal government can’t continue in perpetuity these programs.
Jim Talent
When I was a deacon, my father took me and my older brother to general priesthood meeting in the Tabernacle. I remember how thrilled I was to be in the presence, for the first time, of the prophet of God, President Heber J. Grant, and the other prophets and apostles.
James E. Faust
A lot of people have read the Mira Grant books who are not urban fantasy readers, and they would never have picked up a book with an urban fantasist’s name on the cover, but then they go on to read my urban fantasy and like it.
Seanan McGuire
The greatest leading man, in my opinion, will always be Cary Grant.
Joe Pantoliano
I grew up in the church and loved contemporary Christian music. I go back to the early days of when it first started with the likes of Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. Those people that really pioneered are heroes of mine.
Jay DeMarcus
I think the most important things my book does is to give readers the address of George Monbiot’s website and how to get hold of comic books by Grant Morrison.
Frankie Boyle
I always ask, why can’t I be just like Cary Grant or something.
Aaron Eckhart
When we formed Bad Company, I looked around and asked, ‘Who is the biggest rock band in the world?’ The answer was undoubtedly Led Zeppelin. Peter Grant was their manager, so we got him to work with us. That made the difference for Bad Company.
Paul Rodgers
I know General Grant better than any other person in the country can know him. It was my duty to study him, and I did so day and night, when I saw him and when I did not see him, and now I tell you what I know, he cannot govern this country.
Edwin M. Stanton
Grant us a brief delay; impulse in everything is but a worthless servant.
Caecilius Statius
I don’t ever recall having a political argument with Bob Grant. I’ve known him a long time. I’ve always liked him.
Mario Cuomo
I love ‘Bringing Up Baby.’ Anything that Katharine Hepburn’s in. I’m committed to the Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn era of filmmaking.
Doug Liman
When you have somebody out there that’s willing to work for the team first, that’s contagious. In Phoenix, I learned that from Steve Nash, Grant Hill, so many different guys. When you’re playing with somebody like Steve, like Grant, that just passes on to you.
Robin Lopez
Mobs in the street tearing down Ulysses S. Grant statues is a really chilling sight.
Thomas Chatterton Williams
I lived for 15 years in Los Angeles, and I still can’t believe that the handsomest man in the world, Cary Grant, and the greatest performer in the world, Fred Astaire, and Johnny Carson, one after another – they were all in my home at different times. I celebrated my 50th birthday with them. Unforgettable.
Tony Bennett
Grant, if we edited Fortran, I assume that you’d put a column thing in there.
Ken Thompson
Then, there was Cary Grant. He spent three hours a week in hospitals teaching nervous people how to eat jello.
Red Buttons
Steve Nash, Grant Hill, they were always preaching whether you win or lose. You have to keep an even keel, keep a level head.
Robin Lopez
The Pell Grant is more than a financial aid program for college students in need. It is the right thing to do for America’s college students, and it is the right thing to do for America’s economy.
Norm Coleman
The navigation of our inland waters has for years been sought in vain by foreign countries, and if we grant the privilege to Russia, other States will be guided in their demands by her example.
Zhang Zhidong
Let us search into the records of Holy Writ, if out of this their great charter, there be not a seal grant of a lesser, though like privilege, and this by virtue of Christ, in that we have the honour to be accounted Abraham’s seed as truly as they.
Thomas Goodwin
I was inspired by Cary Grant. I wanted to do the kind of work he did and to work in light-hearted roles, in comedies.
Robert Vaughn
I am not in favour of hierarchies that grant privileges to members who fail to uphold those values – there are plenty of those – but the monarchy is really the Queen, who is of unimpeachable integrity and the longest serving head of state in the world, and who never puts a foot wrong.
Richard Coles
Riskin went into directing and made a film with Cary Grant which applied to the letter all the ideas which had made his comedies famous. It had everything except that little something – and the film was a failure.
Sidney Buchman
I got a grant for the Old Vic Theatre School in London, which had just started. It was only five terms; they used to break you down and never quite put you together again but it was an excellent training.
June Brown
The name ‘The Beach Boys’ is controlled by Brother Records Inc., which was founded by the original members of the Beach Boys and whose sole shareholders voted over a decade ago to grant me an exclusive license to tour as ‘The Beach Boys.’ With it, I’ve felt a great responsibility to uphold, honor and further our legacy.
Mike Love
In any operation, what you have to do is to persuade the patient to grant access to the patient’s energy. The purest form of that is when you’re trying to help a woman through labor: when you’re saying, ‘Push, push!’ and you’re rhythmically with the woman.
David Milch
The only legitimate right to govern is an express grant of power from the governed.
William Henry Harrison
Yeah, but there’s nobody who represents romance to me like Cary Grant.
Aaron Eckhart
I loved Cary Grant. I got to know him and Audrey Hepburn. Here were these people I always liked and admired, and they were coming to my house.
Ralph Lauren
If you don’t look like Rupert Graves or Hugh Grant, they’ll have you playing the gardener.
Jared Harris
I was a big fan of Grant Fuhr. I was a big Oilers fan growing up. I started out playing goal, but there wasn’t enough action. So I decided to play out, and I’m thankful, ’cause goalie is a tough position.
Jarome Iginla
‘North by Northwest’ took two and a half to three months to film. When I look back, I realise I wasn’t intimidated by Hitchcock and Cary Grant. They were so accepting of me.
Martin Landau
The progress of evolution from President Washington to President Grant was alone evidence to upset Darwin.
Henry Adams
I’ve played under Alan Pardew, Gianfranco Zola, Avram Grant, Sam Allardyce, Alan Curbishley and Slaven’s made me captain.
Mark Noble
I came from a working-class family, but I was supported by a grant system and had my fees paid, so I came out of Oxford with a debt of something like £200.
Val McDermid
One of my favorite graphic novels of all time is Grant Morrison’s ‘Earth-2.’
Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
President Ronald Reagan used to speak of the Soviet constitution, and he noted that it purported to grant wonderful rights of all sorts to people. But those rights were empty promises, because that system did not have an independent judiciary to uphold the rule of law and enforce those rights.
John Roberts
As a fiction writer, all I need is a laptop, and when I’m not teaching, I travel as much as I can, applying for every research grant and overseas gig I hear of, then trying to extend those trips as far as the stipends will go. I love to travel alone.
Molly Antopol
Abraham Lincoln went through 12 generals before he got Ulysses S. Grant. He had never done a Civil War before.
Marianne Williamson
My mother was a Bloomsbury figure: a great friend of TS Eliot, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell. My grandmother, Mary Hutchinson, gave her life to works of art, being an admirer of Matisse and Giaometti, whom I collected as a young man because of her.
Jacob Rothschild
Fate is never too generous even to its favorites. Rarely do the gods grant a mortal more than one immortal deed.
Stefan Zweig
There are thousands of grant programs and every program has different requirements and deadlines.
Matthew Lesko
Fear not; and the God of mercies grant a full gale and a fair entry into His kingdom, which may carry sweetly and swiftly over the bar, that you find not the rub of death.
Donald Cargill
The great actors, like Cary Grant, and the gentlemanliness that they portray in the movies is something that I try to keep in mind.
Michiel Huisman
When I was at university in Birmingham, I used to spend half my grant betting on horse racing. Seven terms out of nine, I made a profit.
Chris Tarrant
Trust cannot be commanded; and yet it is also correct that the only one who earns trust is the one who is prepared to grant trust.
Gustav Heinemann
Dr. Cox mentors the rookie doctors with a spoonful of dirt and then a cup of sugar. I see him as an archetypal descendent of two of my favorite curmudgeonly characters: Lou Grant and Louie De Palma.
John C. McGinley
You cannot grant amnesty. If the American people see us granting amnesty they will never again believe in legal immigration. They will never again support it, and that’s wrong for our country, bad for our future.
Marco Rubio
Cary Grant is really the master of not taking himself so seriously.
Christoph Waltz
After the Volcker Fund collapsed, I got another grant from the Lilly Endowment to do a history of the U.S., which I worked on from 1962-66. The original idea was to take the regular facts and put a libertarian assessment on everything.
Murray Rothbard
At the time when I was in college, Oscar Grant had just lost his life in Oakland, Calif. He was an unarmed young black male who had a record. And at the time when his death was making headlines, more people were talking about what he had done in his past than the fact that he unjustly lost his life.
Angie Thomas
Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love.
Francis of Assisi
When we’re able to identify disparities in education, we can better determine whether federal grant programs are effectively reaching our students, allowing us to improve how to distribute and implement these funds across communities.
Jacky Rosen
My kindergarten teacher encouraged me to learn, as did my school headmaster, who gave me a grant to study.
Ada Yonath
It’s easy for the thought-leader and executive classes to embrace a ‘do what you love and love what you do’ philosophy when they are wealthy enough to work hard only voluntarily, and when their jobs grant them status.
Alex Pareene
Even when EPA subjects its science to peer review, the agency often stacks the deck of supposedly independent advisory panels by including members who are EPA grant recipients.
Ralph Hall
Saying that you are advocating on behalf of small business does not grant a license to spend at will on more and more programs without congressional input, oversight, or statutory authority.
Sam Graves
Our worldly successes cannot be guaranteed, but our ability to achieve spiritual success is entirely up to us, thanks to the grace of God. The best advice I know is to give is to give those worldly things your best but never your all – reserve the ultimate hope for the only one who can grant it.
Mitt Romney
Hugh Grant is really the perfect actor for romantic comedies. Anything he does is invariably charming.
Brad Hall
For what the lover would, that would the beloved; what she would ask of him that should he go before to grant. Without accord such as this, love is but a bond and a constraint.
Marie de France
Grant Dalton, constantly, whenever he gets asked something in the media about Oracle, he makes the statement that we have got unlimited resources, and we can do anything we like. It is just complete crap.
James Spithill
While the scars of the monstrous Civil War still remain, the wounds have closed since 1865, in large part, because of the civility of Grant and Lee.
Douglas Brinkley
From a dramatic viewpoint, there are few professions that grant their members entry into other lives, high among them cops, doctors, clergymen, journalists and prostitutes. Perhaps that explains why they figure in so much television and cinema. Their lives are lived in the midst of human drama.
Roger Ebert
I have no bigger goal than to eradicate racism, to grant Americans who have a different color of skin the right to disagree against the Left’s style of orthodoxy.
Andrew Breitbart
It’s not a pretty face, I grant you. But underneath its flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.
Alan Jay Lerner
The wise decision by President Obama to grant some undocumented immigrants the right to remain in the United States for two years without the threat of deportation is already benefitting the country.
Eliot Spitzer
Hugh Grant is the main man. He’s the number one romantic comedy man in the world.
Sam Elliott
Murder is unique in that it abolishes the party it injures, so that society has to take the place of the victim and on his behalf demand atonement or grant forgiveness; it is the one crime in which society has a direct interest.
W. H. Auden
I like Hugh Grant.
Harry Enfield
Although it has been said by men of more wit than wisdom, and perhaps more malice than either, that women are naturally incapable of acting prudently, or that they are necessarily determined to folly, I must by no means grant it.
Mary Astell
I would love to do a really cool romantic comedy, perhaps with Hugh Grant. I think he is brilliant. That’s the kind of film I love to go to see. I love ‘girls’ films’.
Sophia Myles
Nowadays if you’re dependent on a grant – and 99% of them are – you can’t make mistakes as you won’t get another one if you do.
James Lovelock
I don’t really deeply feel that anyone needs an airtight reason for quoting from the works of writers he loves, but it’s always nice, I’ll grant you, if he has one.
J. D. Salinger
God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless.
Chester W. Nimitz
Just about everything put out by Top Shelf and Drawn & Quarterly and Fantagraphics is what I keep up with. And once in a while, I’ll read the more mainstream comics – I like Grant Morrison’s writing and some of Warren Ellis’ stuff, although maybe they’re more on the fringe of the mainstream.
Jeffrey Brown
The truth is, I’d never seen a Cary Grant film. Since then I have watched his stuff and it’s astounding, but I don’t see any similarity between us. Except for the fact that I’m told he used to wear ladies’ underwear, which is something I also do.
Hugh Grant
I decided that now is the time to start doing the things that really interest me and I find important. It was in the 10 years of the MacArthur grant that I began working on my first book… and I began putting more work into environmental history.
Jared Diamond
I was brought up playing games and still do ferociously. I once played Connect Four on set with Bill Nighy and Richard E. Grant for so long that the assistant director got cross.
Rachael Stirling
Without bureaus, committees, officials or emissaries to manufacture sentiment in his favor, without intrigue or effort on his part, Grant is the candidate whose supporters have never threatened to bolt.
Roscoe Conkling
Just like Grant Fuhr and Tony McKegney showed me it was possible to do what I’m doing, I want to be someone who shows kids that it’s possible to be whatever they want to be.
Jarome Iginla
Hugh Grant, who several times has announced that he was thinking of retiring from acting, has said that he suffers from panic attacks when the cameras start rolling.
Scott Stossel
It is important for women to have a choice, to have an opportunity to plan their families, because if they don’t, the Republicans have said this is an ownership society. You are on your own, and they’re going to begrudge that child everything, from WIC to a Pell Grant to health insurance.
Gwen Moore
I wouldn’t be here if it were not for the grant system that paid for me to go to art school – because my parents couldn’t have afforded it.
Peter Capaldi
With ‘Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ I wanted to play a character who lives more in the real world, although yes, I grant you, he immediately encounters, um, turtles, of the teenage mutant ninja variety.
Will Arnett
When I approached ‘Animal Man,’ I approached it as if it wasn’t a reboot, as if the Grant Morrison and Jamie Delano stuff happened. I mean, as much as I could make it all make sense, it still all happened.
Jeff Lemire
I talked to Grant Hill, and I told him, ‘I played against you a lot, and now, hopefully, I’m getting to coach a player like you. Jabari has the opportunity to be a special player in this league. But it’s not handed to you. He’s going to work, and our jobs are to make him better each day.’
Jason Kidd
Citizenship is a privilege. We don’t grant it to people because they think they deserve it. What have you done for the United States?
Jeanine Pirro
The Lord grant we may all be tillers of the soil.
Nikolai Gogol
But I think ‘Love, Actually’ has a very realistic view of human nature in line with the latest scientific evidence. The opening scene, where Hugh Grant’s character talks about the arrivals gate at Heathrow, is about friendship and connection, it’s about who we really are as a species.
Rutger Bregman
In my case, I learned that although God loves us, he doesn’t grant us immunity from the consequences of our choices.
Donna Rice
Refusing to grant clemency is a failure of one of the most basic jobs of being governor.
Zephyr Teachout
Grant us more powers, not less; grant us more democracy, not less; grant us the tools to move forward because, I can assure you, Puerto Rico will move forward. We did it in the past; we will do it again.
Anibal Acevedo Vila
There is this miraculous thing I heard Hugh Grant talking about – the thing about screen acting is that you can read people’s thoughts. You are trying to register something inside and usually the eyes in cinema are where you will register that.
Toby Jones
Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Boris Pasternak
The left’s mission isn’t simply to grant every citizen the basic means of survival, but comfort and prosperity, too, through collective means. Yet the existence of billionaires is irreconcilable with this emancipatory project.
Owen Jones
I oppose any attempt to grant homosexual unions the same legal privileges that civil government affords to traditional marriage and family life.
Todd Akin
Last year, New York got $200 million. This year, we’re going to give them $124 million under this particular program. But last year was an artificially elevated number to make up from the very low grant the year before.
Michael Chertoff
So it’s a mistake for someone to think that they bailed New York out. They did assist us, for which we are grateful, but it’s a mistake to say we bailed New York out by giving them a grant of money to help those poor people who throw it away on welfare.
David Dinkins
The Israelis should understand that it is in their long-term interest to have a democratic Egypt as a neighbor, and that it is prudent to acknowledge the legitimate interests of the Palestinians and to grant them their own state.
Mohamed ElBaradei
In the late 90s I was hired to participate in a 2 year initiative discussing intimacy and depression which was funded by an educational grant by Glaxo Wellcome.
Drew Pinsky
Goethe died in 1832. As you know, Goethe was very active in science. In fact, he did some very good scientific work in plant morphology and mineralogy. But he was quite bitter at the way in which many scientists refused to grant him a hearing because he was a poet and therefore, they felt, he couldn’t be serious.
Stephen Jay Gould
He’d forgiven who he needed to forgive, let go of what he needed to, and accepted himself as he was. Archibald Alexander Leach, Cary Grant, and all.
Jennifer Grant
In 2007, I received a National Geographic Expeditions Council grant to go around the top of the world and talk to Arctic people about how they’ve been impacted by climate change.
Gretel Ehrlich
President Obama seems to think that you win by demonstrating that you’re a more reasonable person than your opponents. It didn’t work too badly, I’ll grant, as an electoral strategy in the 2012 election.
Timothy Noah
In ‘Charade,’ there was a big fight. George Kennedy was playing one of his first big heavy roles; he had a hook for a hand, and he was real ugly. Cary Grant was Cary Grant. They were on a slanted roof, a very exciting fight, and we agreed there shouldn’t be any music, just the grunts and the action.
Henry Mancini
Grant that the true organ with which the beautiful is apprehended is the imagination, and it follows that all arts are likely to affect the feelings indirectly.
Eduard Hanslick
A novel can grant humanity even to those who act inhumanely, and by making men and women of monsters, it can offer not only a ground-level view of a particular conflict, but a descent into the substratum of human nature capable of the incomprehensible.
Anthony Marra
Hugh Grant does a great job with his style. Somehow understated yet timeless and seems to get it. He does it on and off camera.
David Lauren
‘The Invisibles’ by Grant Morrison is my favorite series of all time.
Brea Grant
I went to the London School of Economics to study sociology and psychology on a serviceman’s grant.
Ron Moody
‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ is a great classic by Paul McCartney and John Lennon, I sure love that song. I did like the classic version, a rock-oriented song, then someone heard me do it with the Grant Green approach – Grant Green and Larry Young did it, with a bossa nova beat on the funky side.
George Benson
Prayer should be short, without giving God Almighty reasons why he should grant this, or that; he knows best what is good for us.
John Selden
O ye gods, grant unto me to have little and to want nothing.
Apollonius of Tyana
Cary Grant was wonderful to work with on stage. He would move downstage, so that as he looked at me the audience had to look at me, too. He knew a lot about the theater and how to move around. He was very secure.
Fay Wray
I read tons of comic books. My favourite is Grant Morrison, a Scottish comic writer.
Frankie Boyle
I will watch everything that Cary Grant did, or Kubrick made or Bergman.
Tim Roth
In ’89, I got a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. That’s when I started to get into group shows. Suddenly, I sort of ‘came out’ as an artist.
Glenn Ligon
With ‘Sweetback,’ I just put it together a little bit at a time. I didn’t do it on anybody’s grant. I did it like any other young executive – by cheating and stealing!
Melvin Van Peebles
The custom of speaking to God Almighty as freely as with a slave – caring nothing whether the words are suitable or not, but simply saying the first thing that comes to mind from being learnt by rote by frequent repetition – cannot be called prayer: God grant that no Christian may address Him in this manner.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Obviously dunking on Horace Grant and Michael, in those circumstances, is just an incredible thing to happen. I’m happy I was able to make that play, and I’m fortunate I was in that position where I could make that happen for my team.
John Starks
Grant that I may not pray alone with the mouth; help me that I may pray from the depths of my heart.
Martin Luther
All the good modern parts go to Jack Lemmon or Cary Grant.
Charlton Heston
With acknowledgement of residues, we can be more easily prepared to grant the unit of science, the overlapping of disciplines, and the total coherence of all facts.
Kenneth L. Pike
I wanted it to be like Amy Grant, but it didn’t pan out that way. My label actually went bankrupt, and I was left without a home.
Katy Perry
In my life, I got a haircut junior year of college that was a real wash-‘n-go type of situation. It was short. I had six or seven people say I looked just like Hugh Grant. And I was like, ‘That’s a man. So… that’s not nice.’
Jessica St. Clair
I started doing standup because of Hugh Grant’s best-man speech in ‘Four Weddings,’ which is basically a standup routine.
Kumail Nanjiani
You’re absolutely right: Bob Grant is a racist, Bob Grant is a bigot, he’s a despicable talk show host and I agree with that.
Alan Dershowitz
I never took a grant or borrowed a penny from anybody. It was partially because I didn’t really know how to do that, but secondly, my pride never would have allowed me to. In the beginning it was about doing it the right way, on the merits of the music.
Bryan Adams
From the Bush Administration to the 9-11 Commission, there is an urgent and universally recognized need to change the broken formula through which Homeland Security grant money currently is allocated to our first responders.
Vito Fossella
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Reinhold Niebuhr
I will accept no commission that would tend to create a rivalry with Grant. I want him to hold what he has earned and got. I have all the rank I want.
William Tecumseh Sherman
Hugh Grant will always be associated with his scandal, and so will Max Mosley.
Ruth Rendell
That’s how the Pell Grant system works, in that you get a flat dollar amount, and you can use it for tuition or room and board.
Brian Schatz
With the Ford Foundation grant all of a sudden instead of being an artist that had made a couple of short films, I became a filmmaker who dabbled in the arts.
Bruce Conner
Filmmaking in general is my second career. I thought that writing wasn’t practical, so I went to business school and got an MBA, and I worked three years in grant management.
Dee Rees
If a friend asks a favor, you should grant it if it is reasonable; if not, tell him plainly why you cannot: You will wrong him and wrong yourself by equivocation of any kind.
Robert E. Lee
In 2003, I introduced and passed The Tornado Shelters Act, which allows local governments to use Community Development Block Grant funds to construct storm shelters in manufactured housing communities.
Spencer Bachus
When I was younger, all my friends were older – John Ford, Howard Hawks, Alfred Hitchcock, Orson Welles, Jimmy Stewart and Cary Grant. I loved talking to those people.
Peter Bogdanovich
By placing discretion in the hands of an official to grant or deny a license, such a statute creates a threat of censorship that by its very existence chills free speech.
Harry A. Blackmun
My father sang well, and he was a handsome man. When he walked down the street, people sometimes mistook him for Cary Grant and asked for his autograph.
Alan Alda
To see Grant Fuhr starring, to see Claude Vilgrain and Tony McKegney, it was very important for me to see to follow my dream.
Jarome Iginla
We want Telangana state with Hyderabad as its capital. We demand the Centre to grant the statehood for the region.
I didn’t take the fight with Michael Grant because the timing wasn’t right. They offered me a lot of money, but it wasn’t in my best interest to take that fight. They were trying to use me to build up Michael Grant.
Shannon Briggs
‘Mira Grant’ is actually my pseudonym. And ‘Seanan’ is pronounced ‘SHAWN-in.’
Seanan McGuire
There are many actors who have inspired me: Spencer Tracy for his incredible elegance and, of course, Cary Grant. But, there’s also an Italian actor I admire a great deal: Alberto Sordi.
Alfred Molina
When I was first writing ‘Feed’ – which was the first book I published as Mira – I talked about it very openly on my blog, on Twitter, that I was writing this book, and it wasn’t until after it was sold that I said ‘Mira Grant’ wrote this book. And the reason there was really purely marketing-based.
Seanan McGuire
There was a guy that I got to know pretty well – Joe Grant. He was one of the creators of Dumbo and worked side-by-side with Disney. Being a total Disney nerd, I was obsessed with asking him questions. He was 92 when I got to know him.
Pete Docter
Maybe climate change is a threat, and maybe climate change has been tarted up by climatologists trolling for research grant cash. It doesn’t matter.
P. J. O’Rourke
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Saint Augustine
We want people to realize you are at a design school, not a land grant college. The way we look says a great deal about who we are.
James Hall
And I pray thee, loving Jesus, that as Thou hast graciously given me to drink in with delight the words of Thy knowledge, so Thou wouldst mercifully grant me to attain one day to Thee, the fountain of all wisdom and to appear forever before Thy face.
Venerable Bede
Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, I grant you that. Yes, yes, it’s the most comical thing in the world.
Samuel Beckett
Over time, my mother also gave up her dream of seeing me as a bride because whomever she showed my horoscope to would say my marriage wouldn’t be a successful one. It was not the kind of thing I believed in, but it did grant me some semblance of peace.
Asha Parekh
My parents kept us sheltered from this world of Hollywood. I don’t have any great memories of bouncing on Cary Grant’s knee or something like that.
Tony Goldwyn
It was the wont of the immortal gods sometimes to grant prosperity and long impunity to men whose crimes they were minded to punish in order that a complete reverse of fortune might make them suffer more bitterly.
Julius Caesar
I support gay unions. I think the government should get out of the marriage business completely – leave marriages to the churches. And grant civil unions to gay couples, grant civil unions to a man and woman.
Gary Johnson
If I had to date someone, it would be Hugh Grant. I love him.
Rituparna Sengupta
One of the more surreal days I’ve ever had in the recording studio was Martin Fry teaching Hugh Grant his old dance moves. Showing him how to do the hair-flip and the point, and all these sort of trademark moves of his.
Adam Schlesinger
A man becomes what he dreams. And I dreamed of being in the movies. I was brought up on Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Warren Beatty, and Cary Grant.
Pierce Brosnan
I believe in singing for my supper. I’ll never accept a grant because what I do should be able to be founded purely on free enterprise.
Russell Crowe
The right to vote is the easiest of all rights to grant.
Robert Kennedy
Our volunteer fire departments know their needs better than Washington, D.C. They need more flexibility on spending grant money from FEMA and Homeland Security.
Mike Ross
That’s pretty much how I feel on stage, like I can let go of all kinds of baggage, or even disappear and change outfits. I want to remind people that they can grant themselves the license to do the same.
Christine and the Queens
The first time I spoke to Avram Grant, my first question was about his conception of football. He gave me his answer and it was a good point.
Demba Ba
Everybody wants to look in the mirror and see Cary Grant looking back at them, but that’s just not the case.
Dennis Farina
Whatever a person may pray for, that person prays for a miracle. Every prayer comes down to this – Almighty God, grant that two times two not equal four.
Ivan Turgenev
I suppose you all grant that woman is a human being. If she has a right to life she has a right to earn a support for that life. If a human being, she has a right to have her powers and faculties as a human being developed. If developed, she has a right to exercise them.
Ernestine Rose
O Christ, on you the many-eyed cherubim are unable to look because of the glory of your countenance, yet out of your love you accepted spittle on your face. Remove the shame from my face, and grant me to have an unashamed face before you at the time of prayer.
Isaac of Nineveh
When I knew I was pregnant four years ago with a boy, a friend suggested I call him Cary, but I initially resisted. There was only one Cary Grant. But a week before he was due, I started thinking it would be wonderful to pass the name on to him. And anyway, my father wasn’t Cary to me. He was Dad.
Jennifer Grant
Grant me some wild expressions, Heavens, or I shall burst.
George Farquhar
I met Cary Grant once, and I was absolutely star struck. I got his autograph.
David Hasselhoff
There are actors in this town who made important careers for a long, long period just by taking the parts that Cary Grant turned down.
Louis Jourdan
After that I won a prize, I was with a group of ancient music of Spain that they helped me a lot with a grant, you see, during three years. And so I made my debut in 1944 and I found myself helping my family, it was a very poor family.
Victoria de los Angeles
Since it is necessary to grant six million Filipinos their rights, so that they may be in fact Spaniards, let the government grant these rights freely and spontaneously, without damaging reservations, without irritating mistrust.
Jose Rizal
How arrogant – how very far from humility – would be the self-satisfied, smug assurance that God, a tidy-up-after-us God will come and clean up our mess? Hope for a nanny God, who will with a miracle grant us amnesty from our folly – that’s not aligned with either history or the text of the Bible.
