I’m a grown woman. The haters are definitely wrong if they think I care.

I’ve just grown a little disappointed with ‘Muppets in the Old West’, ‘Muppets Under Water’ and all these weird concept movies. I just want to go take it back to the early 80’s, when it was about the Muppets trying to put on a show. That’s what I’m trying to bring back.
Gamers are everywhere, coming in all ages and genders, and developers have grown up, too.

I’ve grown a lot, and I’m learning every week.
Because I am a horrible flincher, contact lenses are not an option. I’m always envious of contact-wearers. There are endless reasons to take off one’s glasses during the day and, as I have grown older, what I don’t see has become increasingly pronounced.
I’ve grown up around some incredibly funny people, which has been a blessing and curse because now I’ve been completely spoiled in terms of what I find funny.

I don’t have a preferred religion – I’d have to do research. I was born a Christian, but as I’ve grown into my own man, I don’t attach myself to a religion – 100 per cent, I have faith. Then it’s locking into what suits me.
I’m the person that I always was, but in terms of how I approach my living, I’m not the same person at all. At all. I’ve buried a child, I’ve ended a marriage, and the grandson that I was raising is now grown. My family has totally shifted.
Yes the moustache appeared for the first time about 10 years ago and it was grown as a joke of course but I discovered I quite liked it. I preferred it and my wife prefers it. I got married in it and she wont come near me when Im clean shaven.

When I originally came from ‘Cheetah Girls,’ I was making music that was real to me but not believable. I think there was a disconnect there. I am a grown woman, and I’ve been through a lot. The most important thing about my music is that we don’t jump the gun and throw anything out there.

We were sitting on the bus one day and there were 5 of us hanging out. There was only one beer left in the cooler and we actually all took a little cup and split it. It was a pathetic day in a rock and roll when five grown men have to be sitting there sharing a beer.
So my character on ‘Tyrant’ is a chap called Barry Al Fayeed, and he is the second son of a fictional Middle Eastern dictator. But, he has grown up since he was young in America. He’s trained as a doctor. He’s married a beautiful American girl, had two kids, so he’s very much an American.
It’s very, very special for me. This is where I’ve grown up, it’s my home, and winning the Monaco Grand Prix is the highlight of any racing driver’s career and for me a childhood dream. It being my home makes it all the more special, unbelievable.
I’ve grown up, luckily, with only a distant relationship to war and soldiering.

I think my mom and dad have an incredible work ethic, and we’ve grown up around it.

I only drink coffee grown in high altitude rain forests.

One of the myths about Dad was that he was mean. That simply wasn’t true. I always found him generous to a fault but he wasn’t reckless with his money, which was rather rare in Hollywood. He’d grown up with nothing and he wasn’t about to fritter it all away.

I wasn’t a friendly child. I was reserved and mostly kept to myself. My family tells me they’ve noticed a sea change in me after I’ve grown up. But I guess that’s natural. Your surroundings, friends, college, etc. do make a lot of difference to your personality.
I avoid writing about sex out of a certainty that no matter how grown up and matter-of-fact I might try to be, there is a snickering yet nun-terrorized 12-year-old-boy inside me who would at some point be certain to grab the reins in his hairy palms.
Wrestling has grown so big… it’s almost a culture. And it’s a culture of all types of vibes, just like hip-hop has all kinds of vibes and rap has all kinds of vibes.
I always had a sense that I would fall in love with Tokyo. In retrospect I guess it’s not that surprising.

Enjoy the little fun things – like taking your kids to school – before they’re all grown up.

My parents were born in 1912; they graduated from college into the Depression. They kept notebooks of every nickel they spent, and these habits of frugality from having grown up so poor never left them.

I have nothing to explain. As for being misunderstood, I have grown accustomed to that.

Sometimes I still go round the house making weird noises and stuff, so in that aspect, I haven’t grown up!
On Disney, we stick to the script. But you go to the ‘Grown Ups set’ and it’s completely different. Same thing with Tyler Perry – it’s nothing but ad-libbing.

I’ve seen mothers and children really being vulnerable in the refugee camps; it’s supposed to be temporary, but they end up having children who have grown up in refugee camps.
It’s my belief that cooking is a craft. I think that you can push it into the realm of art, but it starts with craft. It starts with an understanding of materials. It starts with an understanding of where foods are grown.
I think people recognize me if I am going out to dinner or if I am staying in a hotel. They are not quite sure at first because I have grown up a lot.

My humour is a mix of my parents’. I get the chatty, anecdotal stuff from my dad and the filth from my mam, Valerie.

I hope I haven’t grown up. The cliche for all artists is that you don’t want to lose that child inside. I think when you get sedentary and set in your ways, you can lose a lot of that spontaneity and creativity. I hope I’m holding on to that.
At this stage I am not involved with young adults as closely as many other writers. My children are grown up and my grandchildren are still quite young.

And it’s funny, as much as I’m all about I’m my own person, and I’m making my own name for myself, I have grown up in a world where most of these people who are like me are children of famous parents. So it’s easy to become the socialite and be famous for that.
At home, I had seven brothers, one sister. I sewed clothes for my sister’s dolls although she was grown and gone away. I was a weirdo but didn’t think I was a weirdo.

One is never so dangerous when one has no shame, than when one has grown too old to blush.

I hadn’t grown up with ‘The Hobbit;’ I hadn’t grown up with ‘Lord of The Rings,’ anything like that.
When I got a deposit on my very first cake, I took that deposit and I bought some cake mix with it. I’ve never taken a loan – ever. And we’re doing this expansion just like everything we’ve done in this bakery as we’ve grown. If we weren’t able to afford paying for something cash, we didn’t buy it.
I try to stick to real food, meaning anything that has been grown naturally or organically and that is not majorly processed: meats and proteins, a lot of green vegetables, less sugary fruits, solid starches and nuts.
There are estimated to be fewer that 50 prodigious savants worldwide. If we were brought together, it would be disappointing in the sense of us having different abilities. One thing that would make me feel united with them would be the sense of us having grown up in isolation.
There’s no way to escape the fact that we’ve grown up in a violent culture, we just can’t get away from it, it’s part of our heritage. I think part of it is that we’ve always felt somewhat helpless in the face of this vast continent. Helplessness is answered in many ways, but one of them is violence.

I had grown up accustomed to living a life of high drama.
The evangelical Christian faith I’d grown up with sustained me. It demanded that I refuse the drugs and alcohol on offer in our southwestern Ohio town, that I treat my friends and family kindly, and that I work hard in school. Most of all, when times were toughest, it gave me reason to hope.
The Lakers had been home to me, unlike the home I had grown up and felt apart from.

A lot of my fans are people who have grown up and don’t have as much time to listen to the radio, but still want to keep up with what’s popular. A lot of shows don’t talk to them anymore, but I do.

In British culture, redheads get teased at school. But I’ve grown up enough to realize I love my hair.

I’ve been on ‘Hollyoaks’ since I was 15, and I’ve grown up on the show. I’m so very fortunate to be given the opportunity to learn my craft in such a fantastic environment.

To be perfectly honest, I think that as I’m growing older, I’m just growing more impatient. I’ll be very happy if at some point people say, ‘Michael’s grown wiser and softer in his old age.’ But we’ll have to wait and see what my next project is.

My generation of playwrights have grown up writing for studio theatres, and so the task of writing for more than ten or so actors is a huge challenge. Logistically, it’s like doing an enormous Sudoku. Making sure everyone is in the right place at the right time in the right order instantly sends me into a cold sweat.
So much of my sense of who I am is tied to mothering. When they left home, I fell into a huge, empty, black hole. Your children are grown and your career has slowed down – all the stuff that took up so much attention is gone, and you’re left with expansive time and space.
I’ve grown up listening to Gorillaz, so for me to, like, be asked to be on the album is an honour.

I think I read films having grown up around the pre-production and post-production aspect of the filmmaking medium, a lot more than most young people who are in acting would have experienced. I do think about scripts in a different way. I can’t just read a script as an actor. I don’t know how to do that.
I went through a brief phase when I thought of other career options: being an air hostess and even a psychologist. But eventually, my destiny led me to acting. Moreover, my dad being an actor, I have grown up in a very filmi environment. I was encouraged to watch films since I was a child.
I’ve grown a lot in my time in San Antonio, both on and off the court, and probably off the court most importantly.
I have grown up in Delhi in a way, and I keep coming here often. But, and I am sorry to say, I’ll always be nervous when in Delhi. In my college days, I have had my bum pinched around so many times. So yes, in Mumbai, I can just walk around and do what I want to do, but in Delhi I’ll always be scared.

In the wild, an enoki mushroom is often squat-looking and its stem is rarely more than twice as long as the cap is wide. When they are grown by farmers and hobbyists, however, their stems elongate, the caps are smaller, and a forest of golden colored needle-like mushrooms shoot up all at once.
I had grown up during Vietnam. I had no connections to the U.S. military, and I had a pretty cynical default opinion about the U.S. military.

As a director, I’m not the one animating every frame, every shot. I’m moving around like a surgeon on rounds, or a farmer checking in on all the plants being grown, pruning and adjusting. For me, it’s a very exciting job.
There are eight or nine leading varieties of rice grown in Japan, all of which, except an upland species, require mud, water, and much puddling and nasty work. Rice is the staple food and the wealth of Japan. Its revenues were estimated in rice. Rice is grown almost wherever irrigation is possible.
My face hasn’t matured as I’ve grown up, and neither has my sense of humour. In the mirror, I see an older version of myself as a child, although I do have more wrinkles and freckles.

The most effective step that may be taken to increase the production of these crops is to enlarge the acreage devoted to them in the regions where they are grown habitually.
I think the water dictates how food will taste in a country. In England the apples taste unlike apples grown in any other place. England is an island, there’s a lot of salt in the air and in the water. I think that has something to do with it.
Unlike people of my generation, my children and my grandchildren have grown up living with, knowing, people who were outwardly gay and lesbian. And they have learned that they’re just like us… And when you see that they’re just like us, the rationale for discrimination melts away.

As a grown woman, I saw the first black president reach down a hand and touch the face of a child like I once was, lifting his eyes toward a better future. But I have never, ever, in all my years seen a leader so committed to delivering that better future to America’s children as Hillary Clinton.
While we’ve taken seeds into space, and astronauts on the International Space Station have eaten lettuce they’ve grown, we haven’t produced fruit in space, so we can’t pollinate something.

If you bend a branch until it’s horizontal, the sap will slow to a stopping point: a comma or colon, made of leaves grown into one another and over one another and hardened. Out of this pause comes a flower, which unfolds itself in spirals, as if the leaf form, unable to keep to its line, had begun to pivot.
I’ve never grown into loving someone. It’s, like, either right away or slowly sinks in.

I always read all these books about the slaves. My mother is very educated. My father would talk to us like we were grown men. We never knew what he was talking about half the time.

You must remember that anyone under 30 – especially a ballplayer – is an adolescent. I never got close to being an adult until I was 32. Even though I was married and had a son at 20, I was a kid at 32, living at home with my parents. Sure, I was a manager then. That doesn’t mean you’re grown up.

I realized that I didn’t need nearly as many calories as I’d grown accustomed to. I ate 100 to 200 calories every two hours or so, consumed healthy proteins (yogurt, lean meat, turkey jerky), and drank a gallon of water a day. And as my weight dropped, my energy soared.

I have never grown out of the infantile belief that the universe was made for me to suck.
Young people have grown up watching so much content, and just to find something that they haven’t seen before: that’s the dream. When you stumble across a show, and you say ‘I haven’t seen this,’ that’s what we want.

Being young is an advantage. You’ve grown up with games as the dominant entertainment. You have a lot of experience of video games. So what do you want to see that’s not been done? Innovation is really low cost for you. You can afford to take risks and fail to execute new ideas.
As cities have grown rapidly across the nation, many have neglected infrastructure projects and paved over green spaces that once absorbed rainwater.
As a child, I lived through and survived the segregated South. I sat at the back of the bus at a time when America wasn’t yet as great as it could be.

As we’ve grown ‘The Daily Muse’ and met contacts who want to collaborate with us, knowing who does what has helped us be clear on who we want our partners to connect with – and makes us look buttoned up, too. SEO firm? Talk to our COO. An editor from the ‘Huffington Post?’ Meet our Editor-in-Chief.
Well, I was a big fan of the book and therein a huge fan of the girl Precious. And so I felt like I knew this girl. I felt like I’d grown up alongside her. I felt like she was in my family. She was my friend and she was like people I didn’t want to be friends with.
Gang members have invariably grown up in broken, chaotic homes, often experiencing domestic violence; they have truanted from school and many have been formally excluded; and they live in neighbourhoods where worklessness, addiction and crime are rife.
The six of us gathered at my house, and we walked to the polls. I’ll never forget it. Not a Negro was on the streets, and when we got to the courthouse, the clerk said he wanted to talk with us.

My kids that are grown up, in their 20s, they all go to festivals. They have to behave, though. When it comes to things like that it’s do as I say, not do as I do.
I’m glad to have grown up in the countryside and played, and had to use my imagination rather than a TV and had to learn to act the hard way, to have dealt with the rejection. It’s a life as well as a job, at the end the day, we all have to work for a living, but we have to have a life as well.

I’ve grown as a storyteller, and my comedic timing has gotten better.

I think that there is a generational change, where new generations that have grown up always having access to the internet have a somewhat different view in terms of personal information and what needs to be kept private.
