Squaring numbers is a symmetrical process that I like very much. And when I divide one number by another, say, 13 divided by 97, I see a spiral rotating downwards in larger and larger loops that seem to warp and curve. The shapes coalesce into the right number. I never write anything down.
Daniel Tammet

As I had visualized, ‘Heroine’ is shaping up to be a very contemporary film with a different premise and strata. This film, like most of my other films, is a blend of facts and fiction. The film has a larger span, more characters, and costumes… a journey that revolves around an actress’s life and the showbiz.
Madhur Bhandarkar

Charlie Hunter
Music is obviously a huge part of the Marley family identity. But that music is part of a larger idea – love.

As the builders say, the larger stones do not lie well without the lesser.
I think of myself as living so much outside borders or old categories that I choose as my leaders U2, the Dalai Lama, Vaclav Havel, Sigur Ros, Desmond Tutu, Barack Obama, and the girl next door. By definition, in short, my leaders are the ones who think in terms larger, and more intimate, than any country.
Pico Iyer

Fred Ehrsam
It is a great feeling to be working in Bollywood where films are made with much larger scope.
Ammy Virk

Daniel H. Pink
The larger meaning here is that mainstream journalists simply cannot talk about things that the two parties agree on; this is the black hole of American politics.

It was enormous, in terms of human rights, ethnic rights, a concern for the environment, too.
Noam Chomsky
There are problems in Canada. There is a certain inconsistency in the acting. I don’t mean to sound chauvinistic, but we do have a larger supply of good actors in Hollywood. There are good actors in Canada, but not as wide a choice.

In a lot of films, they’re showing more complete, developed characters of diverse ethnic backgrounds. The larger concern is to be able to tastefully explore the stereotypes, and still move past them to see the core of people.

Sohla El-Waylly
As long as you think of your real self as the person you are, then of course you’re going to be fearful of death. But what is a person? A person is a pattern of behavior, of a larger awareness. You know, the two-year-old dies before the three-year-old shows up, the three-year-old dies before the teenager shows up.
Deepak Chopra
The federal government is far larger than the Founding Fathers ever intended it to be. We have racked up over $16 trillion of debt through wasteful spending, and it is time that we cut that waste and start reducing the size of our government.
Matt Salmon
I was going to go and do what I should do as a filmmaker and make slightly larger films each time, learn my craft, make mistakes and solve them.

Duryodhan was a prince fighting for his throne. He was powered by ambition and aspiration. Parshuram is godly. His fight is against injustice at a larger societal level. I’ve enjoyed playing both the characters.
Puneet Issar
We have reached a milestone in our understanding of nature. The discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs boson opens the way to more detailed studies, requiring larger statistics, which will pin down the new particle’s properties, and is likely to shed light on other mysteries of our universe.
Rolf-Dieter Heuer
Super-Earths are how we call a family of planets… up to two times larger and about ten times more massive than the Earth.

The best way to conduct research on a larger scale is to make sure everyone knows what everyone else is doing… The sooner the better – start talking to other people about what you’re doing. Because that’s what will stimulate things the fastest.

Palmer Luckey
It’s a hard thing for me to wrap my mind around the C word: celebrity. Rock stars are celebrities because they’re larger than life. As an actor, you have to play the everyman and the everygirl. If you start treating people in the real world like assistants, that’s not a good look. But my friends keep me grounded.
Channing Tatum
I take the world very personally. I take history personally; I want to place myself in the larger context.
Marianne Wiggins
The Cold War provided justification for a larger peacetime military, since we were never really at peace, or so the argument went.
Phil Klay
You’re not hearing people like Madeleine Albright argue that the budget of the State Department should be as large as the Defense Department. The Pentagon is going to be larger by its nature. It’s going to have more people.
Ronan Farrow
So many tech companies have embraced a mission that they say is larger than profits. Once you wrap yourself up in a moral flag, you have to carry it to the top of other hills.
Glenn Kelman
Here’s how I see obesity: as a symptom. The larger problem is over-consumption. In a society that identifies consumption with patriotism, valorizes ‘growth’ above all else and assigns status according to how much you consume, we compete with each other to see who can consume the most.
Emily Levine
The music and movie business has been consistently wrong in its claims that new platforms and channels would be the end of its businesses. In each case, the new technology produced a new market far larger than the impact it had on the existing market.
Steve Blank
Indians can identify with the Indian sensibilities, and rather than taking something from foreign films, it is always good to make a movie which has been enjoyed by a certain audience or in a certain part of India and make it available to a larger audience.
There are always going to be obstacles. I think the bigger your aspirations, the larger the obstacles.

Ian Frazier
Only a consistent, ongoing, deep experience can make a lasting media brand: one that has a commitment from a core community and the respect of a larger reading public.

Ron Rash
Is it philosophical, is it quite allowable, to assume without evidence from fossil plants that the family or any of the genera was once larger and wide spread? and occupied a continuous area?
Asa Gray

Garry Trudeau
People want to hear about the extremes of human nature. They want things that are larger than their own lives, and more romantic, and not necessarily of their own experiences.
Richard Thompson
I’m interested in the hope we invest in science, and the disappointment we can feel when science flattens, or ‘explains,’ the larger mysteries of religion.
Ben Marcus
I was raised to be in service to something larger than myself. A lot of actors concentrate on what they will get out of the profession, rather than what they can offer it. The way I see it, if you come with something to offer, you can offer it forever.
Tyne Daly
I don’t know much about international policing and I would love to learn more. Especially in this day and age when the Internet is rapidly reducing borders and crime can happen on a larger scale than ever before. These things intrigue me.
Lisa Gardner
It’s hard to come across someone who can look past an artist who is larger and just see them for the talent they are and have them be willing to invest what’s necessary to make them a star.
Kelly Price
We are always larger than life because we come from this mentality that since we are a very poor nation, we need an escapist cinema to take us out of our miseries. And that’s where Bollywood comes from.
Abhay Deol
Admire a small ship, but put your freight in a large one; for the larger the load, the greater will be the profit upon profit.
I don’t care about age very much. I think back to the old people I knew when I was growing up, and they always seemed larger than life.
Chinua Achebe
One of the tricky things about sort of larger, comic-book action movies is that the scale is so big that they have to save the world at the end of every movie, and so at the end of each of the films, either Chicago or New York end up getting obliterated.
Graham Moore
Trauma and pain and suffering can be the very thing that dislodges a person from themselves both in awful ways and larger ways that force one to reckon with one’s own life.
Scott Derrickson
Any effort which wittingly or unwittingly draws a wedge between the people and Armed Forces of Pakistan undermines the larger national interest.
Ashfaq Parvez Kayani
I am a bit of a fundamentalist when it comes to black women’s hair. Hair is hair – yet also about larger questions: self-acceptance, insecurity and what the world tells you is beautiful. For many black women, the idea of wearing their hair naturally is unbearable.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Internationally, I have as large of a fan base – if not larger – than I have domestically.

Cindy Wilson
To help producers serve larger institutional customers like schools and hospitals, USDA has helped fund new regional infrastructure like cold storage warehouses, commercial kitchens and local slaughter facilities.

Stanley A. McChrystal
As far as lighting and blocking, camera angles and facial expressions, all that stuff that has to be very specific in film, as opposed to in wrestling where everything is larger than life and you’re performing to the masses.

Nathan Myhrvold
For many years, we have repeated that the direct-to-consumer channel is growing and capturing a larger share of our customers’ wallet.
Richard Hayne
I like to create characters that are larger than life. But it’s funny because I do a lot of bad guys, and it’s because, being European, I usually get cast as bad guys. It’s just how it is.
Peter Stormare
I think sharing your experiences with younger players is something that’s hugely valuable for your team, for your program. It kind of gives me a sense of self outside of just connecting your passes, scoring your goals – it’s being a part of the larger picture.
Christen Press
Ranbir doesn’t like to portray characters which are larger than life. I am very proud that he took such challenges.
Rishi Kapoor
In many ways, Tucker Carlson’s a better symbol of the pathetic state of what passes for conservative journalism than even Glenn Beck or the late Andrew Breitbart, to name two of his contemporaries with a much larger following.
Alex Pareene
Is a family just the strict definition of a small and discrete unit, or is it about the larger organic group that inevitably grows up around the smaller one?

Nikki Sixx
In most careers, you find something you do well, and you tie an increasingly larger bow on the package.

David F. Houston
For most people, using the Internet broadens their sense of who ‘we’ is and actually ends up leaving us in a place of greater compassion and understanding. It leaves us more connected to a larger group of people and more at one with a lot more people in our community.
Alex Steffen
In cash games, you’re apt to see more players staying in to see the flop. If you have a hand worth playing, your best options are to either limp in or make a slightly larger pre-flop raise to build the pot and narrow the competition. A raise of four times the big blind should do the trick.
Daniel Negreanu
Although the flagship brand, Pepsi-Cola, has always been second to Coca-Cola, the Frito-Lay division is ten times larger than its largest competitor, Diamond Foods, Inc., of San Francisco. Its products take up whole aisles at Walmart.
John Seabrook

Shirley Henderson
We absolutely look at larger trends and reactions on Twitter here at the White House.
Daniel Pfeiffer
Writing provides no guarantees. And writers who stay with writing do it for reasons that are larger than self.

Nigel Farage
Because of Murray State’s size, I was able to receive more one-on-one time with my instructors and also more stage time. This isn’t necessarily the case at larger institutions.

Tom Allen

Sohla El-Waylly
It seems that, every several months, you have to expect there is going to be a terrorist incident or that there could be a terrorist incident somewhere. Right away, you’re thinking, ‘What are the consequences? Is this the first part of a larger attack? Is it coordinated, or a lone wolf?’
Peter T. King
Freddie Gray was a story I followed closer than others, for whatever reason, in this larger narrative of police brutality.
Stephen Malkmus
Since Social Security faces a large gap between what it promises younger workers and what it can afford to pay them, private savings will likely need to play a larger role in retirement planning for younger workers.
Ron Lewis
I won my first 10 fights by knockout. The money was getting larger at the same time.
Eddie Alvarez
There’s a lot of exaggerated talk about CAFTA, but it’s actually a fairly routine trade agreement. Although it involves fairly small nations, they’re still more important trade partners than places like Australia or many other larger nations.
Ernest Istook
I believe that we all have ambitions and we all want to achieve something. But the larger things in life that happen to us are already pre-meditated, pre-destined. So we should just romance life.
Amrita Rao
Our fifty principal cities contain 39.3 per cent of our entire German population, and 45.8 per cent of the Irish. Our ten larger cities only nine per cent of the entire population, but 23 per cent of the foreign.
Josiah Strong
The advantage of the consumer businesses is they tend to be much broader-based, much larger number of customers, that tend to over time be a lot more predictable. The advantage of the enterprise companies is they are not as subject to consumer trend, fad, behavior.
Marc Andreessen
It’s always good to promote a film on a larger scale before it’s been put to test.
I have a Crock-Pot, and I have an All-Clad slow-cooker – I have two different ones. The All-Clad is larger, for maybe a gang of people, and my Crock-Pot’s a little smaller if I’m just making something for myself.
Milo Ventimiglia
Time to open up a new chapter in life, and to explore a larger centre.
Lillian Russell
To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking.
Agnes de Mille
We’re seeing a much larger ministry here for the general community. Not just Catholics, but others are calling us too. They’re not looking for lawyers or suing their grandfathers, but counseling and healing.

Conchita Wurst
We are as great as our belief in human liberty – no greater. And our belief in human liberty is only ours when it is larger than ourselves.
Archibald MacLeish
I don’t have a steady relationship. That’s something that women in politics deal with. For some reason, men in politics seem to have a larger charisma, and women drop around their feet. I haven’t noticed that so much for me.
Lara Giddings
Following Michael Brown’s death, I went to Ferguson and met with his parents. I stood with them as they tried to hold their heads high and deal with both their immense loss and the larger issues of police-community relations.
Al Sharpton
I have a tendency to be larger than life.
John Pinette

Barack Obama
Has there ever been a dance career with more ups and downs than Twyla Tharp’s? Or with more varied ambitions? Or larger ambition?
Robert Gottlieb
Syrian refugees fleeing to Europe do not go through anything like the rigorous process experienced by those who are coming to the States, and the volume of Syrians fleeing to Europe is orders of magnitude larger than it is to the United States.
Peter Bergen
I feel like it’s harder to perform in front of a smaller crowd sometimes still than it is a larger crowd.
Alexa Bliss
Britain’s unique success as an industrialised nation-state prompted strong imitative endeavours not only across Europe, but also in Asia. Now many people, who were once humiliated into a sense of nationality by British rule, loom larger than their former masters.
Pankaj Mishra
Most of the services staff is for the larger corporations, not so much for small and medium businesses because they cannot afford an extensive services army.
Kevin Rollins
If you really want to show power in its larger aspects, you need to show the effects on the powerless, for good or ill – the human cost of public works. That’s what I try to do, show not only how power works but its effect on people.
Robert Caro
The demarcation between an art house film and an entertainer has blurred, only because a larger section of the audience has accepted such realistic films.

Pete Gallego
The electroencephalogram represents a continuous curve with continuous oscillations in which… one can distinguish larger first order waves with an average duration of 90 milliseconds and smaller second order waves of an average duration of 35 milliseconds.
Hans Berger
Policing is an integral part of governance. It is a whole, but it is also a part of the larger whole. Just like a human organ like the head, it’s got intelligence, stamina, strategy and surveillance. But it cannot function independently in the absence of other life-sustaining organs.
Kiran Bedi
Small places intrigue me. Whenever I tried moving to a larger city, I ran back to the hills.
Ruskin Bond
Winning matches on any surface will definitely give you a much larger element of trust in what you’re doing.
Johanna Konta
A gay person in office can set a tone, can command respect not only from the larger community but from the young people in our own community who need both examples and hope.
Harvey Milk
Our oceans cover two-thirds of what my grandfather called our water planet, and the part of the ocean that falls under the jurisdiction of the United States covers an area larger than the country itself.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
We are all part of a larger collective looking to create a more beautiful and just world.
Janet Mock
I do have the sense that, although there may be no one way to write a novel, there are many novelists who are in fact part of some sort of larger literary community, whether in the form of a writing group or an MFA program, to name two of the more common forms.
Hanya Yanagihara
I think the media made Manson, turned him into some larger than life figure and surrounded him with mystery and some shady glamour.
Maynard James Keenan
Obviously if it’s a larger bag, you can always debut it at a nice lunch or a good shopping date – maybe like a luncheon or a Dodger’s game. Obviously for smaller bags, clutches and stuff, you can always wait for something in the evening like a big party.
EJ Johnson
J.J. Watt is larger than life and Houston’s newest sports hero, in every sense of the word. He is a guy who spends NFL Fridays at high school football games and actively seeks out those in need of his kindness.
Hannah Storm
I think there is a larger responsibility towards actors to make television what it should be in India. I would love to take on the challenge. Had it been for me, I would focus on good content.
Barun Sobti
We paid off our debts, we learned some, made friends and returned in 1950 with a larger view of life. I had, however, no home, no income of any kind and no prospects whatsoever.
James Black
It’s impossible to change the social without changing the personal – you have to put your money where your mouth is. And if you’re not making those challenges at home, it’s unlikely you’ll make them in a larger setting.
Carrie Mae Weems
I am most attracted to characters and stories that I can relate to. The traditional formula of ‘larger than life’ I never found attractive.
Abhay Deol
In daily life, there are times when people are happy to talk about problems, but when the society is troubled by something, there is never a larger platform for discussion. Bollywood is religion in our country and that is the best place where you can place those questions on the table.
Anubhav Sinha
I think you can safely say that the mystery in ‘Twin Peaks’ as we started to explore more is very large, there are many aspects to it and the hope is that people will find things that they are interested in in all sorts of things related to the larger mystery.
Mark Frost
Lets not push it under the rug, or push it to the side because, no matter what, it’s going to keep coming up. You know, if you never deal with that dirt up under the carpet, it’s going to get larger and larger, and it’s going to keep coming up.
Herschel Walker
Samsung has drastically altered the rule that big screens mean huge phones. Even this smaller of the new Galaxy S models has a larger screen than the biggest iPhone, but it’s much narrower and easier to hold and to slip into a pocket.
Walt Mossberg
‘Life, Love & Hope’ is… I’m thinking ‘larger picture.’ I’m not trying to preach to anyone. We all get lost and caught up in our everyday problems. Your cellphone doesn’t work or you got a parking ticket, you had a bad day at work. You can lose sight of the really important things in life; that’s what the song is about.
Tom Scholz
This war in Iraq is part of a larger effort to remove this terrorist threat from the planet.
Paul Cellucci
I therefore shared fully the intense chagrin of the New York and other State delegations when, on the third ballot, Abraham Lincoln received a larger vote than Seward.
Henry Villard
In many biological structures proteins are simply components of larger molecular machines.
Michael Behe
I’m a big believer that science is part of a larger cultural thing. Science is not all by itself.
Sean M. Carroll
All animals communicate. What’s special about gossip is that it’s not about the here and now. You don’t gossip about lions. You don’t gossip about clouds. You only gossip about other people. And once you do, you can keep track of many more people – this is the basis for forming larger communities.
Yuval Noah Harari
A weak, insecure nation needs sporting heroes, players larger than life on the cricketing field, who can transcend the limitations of their country and team.
Shashi Tharoor
We were gradually playing larger venues and in the early days PA systems were kind of non-existent. So to play loud, we had to use louder equipment. The PA systems back then didn’t mic the instruments – only the vocals.
John Entwistle
I think, on a larger note, that filmmakers and studios should start to tuck it in a little bit, because films wouldn’t have the pressure they have if the word wasn’t out about how expensive they were.
Ted Demme
Baseball is this intense subculture that actually doesn’t speak very much for the larger culture.
Michael Lewis
Idris Elba is a grand actor. He’s very larger than life; he’s bigger than life.
Nicolas Cage
I love to watch entertaining films with larger than life characters and hence enjoy making such kind of movies.
Sajid Nadiadwala
Shakespeare’s idea of the tragic fact is larger than this idea and goes beyond it; but it includes it, and it is worth while to observe the identity of the two in a certain point which is often ignored.
Andrew Coyle Bradley
I believe investors should invest for the long run, so I don’t buy and sell. I usually maintain the classic index of global equities, diversified U.S. and global and emerging markets, and when the risk is larger, I diminish the amount in global equities and put more into liquid assets – but very irregularly.
Nouriel Roubini
Costume, hair and makeup can tell you instantly, or at least give you a larger perception of who a character is. It’s the first impression that you have of the character before they open their mouth, so it really does establish who they are.
Colleen Atwood
In the time I spent with him, Jurgen Klopp was enigmatic, larger than life, and extremely quick-witted. He is quite unique as a football manager in many ways, and that is what makes him so entertaining.
Gary Lineker
I’m not a big crossover person, I’ll be honest. I try to keep ‘Hellcat’ separate from the larger Marvel world because I want it to be a book anyone can read, not just a hardcore comics fan.
Kate Leth
‘Our thing’ is turning into ‘my thing’ within the Mafia, just as the larger American society is facing the new realities of the ‘me generation.’
Joseph D. Pistone
I would have thought it possible to choose delegates for these larger conferences who, even if they could not speak the principal languages, could at least understand them or could have friends seated beside them who could keep them informed on essential points.
Fredrik Bajer
When Priyanka Chopra makes a mark for herself internationally, we claim her achievements as our own and then threaten to ban her films and make her apologize for a work of fiction that has been created by someone else. Can we please attempt to be larger than that?
Pooja Bhatt
Don’t hoard your wealth. Instead, live the life you want with the wealth you have been blessed with, but also make it beneficial for the good of the larger community.
Ajay Piramal
In addition to dealing with call spoofing and robocalls with acts like the Robocall Enforcement Enhancement Act, the American people require a larger scale approach.
Jeff Van Drew
In ‘When They Call You a Terrorist,’ I reflect on my time growing up in Van Nuys, California, surrounded by my devoted family and supportive friends, weaving our experiences into the larger picture of how predominantly marginalized neighborhoods are under constant systemic attack.
Patrisse Cullors
Whether we live alone or with other people, few acknowledge the presence of another roommate. This roommate is named ‘Things’ and the space that ‘Things’ occupies is typically a lot larger than the space people have for themselves.
Fumio Sasaki
I dread the promotion part of my job. It’s agony, especially compared to the private, at-home joy of writing. But being a grown-up means doing every part of the larger task.
Chuck Palahniuk
The bringing-about of order is the first and fundamental task of government. We accept limits on our rights for the sake of a larger social compact all the time.
Jon Meacham
Our ancient forebears who learned to synchronize the movements of dance were those with the capacity to predict what others around them were going to do and signal to others what they wanted to do next. These forms of communication may well have helped lead to the formation of larger human communities.
Daniel Levitin
It was larger than life – the 76ers, Dr. J, Moses Malone, Mo Cheeks, Andrew Toney and Bobby Jones – those were the teams that I grew up following.
Frank Vogel
You know me, I go higher, faster, larger, as long as I can.
Wally Funk
Character is everything. The reason people watch sports entertainment is to see people who are larger than life, but at the same time, there’s something real about them.
John Morrison
The global realignment is accelerating the migration of growth and wealth dynamics from the industrial world to the larger emerging economies.
Mohamed El-Erian
The current nation-state model is the product of thousands of years of political, social, and cultural evolution. I mean, it was only recently – in, like, the last few decades – that people have tried to create an organizing principle larger than the nation-state.
Stephen Miller
All I’m really interested in musically is trying to make concept albums. Serving a larger sum than the parts.
Sturgill Simpson
All small countries have the same problems and concerns about being protected from larger countries and their influences.
Ken Watanabe
I have long been an advocate of starting an IoT journey with a small, low-risk project that can produce immediate benefits. But don’t confuse small with non-strategic. Align each project, no matter how small, into your larger strategic vision.
Maciej Kranz
My family is mostly a chosen one. I’ve managed to invite some really amazing people into my life and they become family. Brothers, sisters, siblings, mentors, role models. And I like to live that way, where your family bleeds out into the larger community.
Adrian Grenier
Modern psychology has pointed to the need of educating people to use a much larger portion of the mind. Transcendental meditation fulfills this need. And it can be taught very easily.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
If we had created rules to automatically turn up the required down payment on a home when there’s a housing bubble, or just say that the mortgage on a property cannot be larger than the value of the property three years ago, the amount of human misery that would’ve been avoided would’ve been enormous.
Bill Foster
I think back to the old people I knew when I was growing up, and they always seemed larger than life.
Chinua Achebe
It’s great to have a job you find rewarding, but let’s face it, we’re not saving people’s lives. ‘Oh gosh, they’ve got a larger Winnebago than me!’ Who cares? It’s what ends up on the screen that counts.
Rita Tushingham
It’s good for people to believe in causes larger than themselves.
Michael Ignatieff
Television forces people to be larger than life. I would be too shy.
Heston Blumenthal
In the context of our world, sizes 8 and 10 are teeny, but not for Hollywood. I had to ask myself, ‘Do I want to be somebody who worries about what I’m eating? Or do I want to find a balance where I can be healthy and not consumed by that and maybe have to buy some larger pants?’ I bought new pants.
Tracee Ellis Ross
It’s indisputable that you’ll make way more money with a larger playoff.
Mike Leach
I’m a larger lady, a plus size with a bit of belly fat, but I know what suits me, clothes-wise: blouses, tailored jackets and pencil skirts. One of my favourite outfits is jeans, riding boots and a fitted velvet jacket.
Jo Frost
Therefore, every country has to understand that fighting against international terrorism is not for the sake of the United States, but for the sake of themselves, and, to a larger extent, in the name of stability of international relations.
Omar Bongo
‘Mean Gene,’ as he was universally known, made every WWE Superstar he interacted with appear larger than life. He had the gift of gab as one of WWE’s most tenured personalities.
Natalya Neidhart
I’ve talked about that with friends, about what genre makes sense to choose for each record and the strategy around that… Sometimes it’s more about the moment of time, and other times it’s more about the sound of the song. Sometimes it’s about what’s going on in larger life, in politics.
There will never be a replacement for that ongoing physical contact. But I don’t think blogging is meant to replace the face-to-face of friendships and meetings. Blogging is a way to keep in touch with a larger group of people on an ongoing basis, in a more efficient way.
Indra Nooyi
The grandest thing has been the lifting up of the gates and the opening of the doors to the women of America, giving liberty to twenty-seven million women, thus opening to them a new and larger life and a higher ideal.
Olympia Brown
It’s much harder to detect a lone wolf than it is somebody who’s associated with a larger organization who’s having planning meetings and making phone calls to people in the organization. And so that is really how the jihad has really developed in the United States.
Peter Bergen
I believe for some high-technology medicine, like transplants and kidney dialysis, age should be a consideration in the delivery of that technology. In a world of limited resources, we have a larger duty to a 10-year-old than to a 90-year-old.
Richard Lamm
Irrespective of economic theories, we will take decisions in the larger interest of the poor people.
Amit Shah
To drop into being means to recognize your interconnectedness with all life, and with being itself. Your very nature is being part of larger and larger spheres of wholeness.
Jon Kabat-Zinn
Since Mahadev’ ended, I was waiting to play more larger than life characters.
Mohit Raina
I think we always look up to legends and people who not only win but give us a larger than life role model… I think Michael Jordan is this, someone who became bigger than his sport.
Dani Alves
It would be hard to exaggerate Ernest Hemingway’s influence over American literature, but his influence on our lives is probably larger still.
Arthur Phillips
If you’re trying to deal with being a marginalized person and trying to confront a larger population that isn’t the same as you, you can be friendly about it, and invite everybody in, or you can be angry about it and be hostile and attack the systems that you want to destabilize.
Ezra Furman
You are ruled by change whether you like it or not, and io9’s future path lies with joining a larger site that covers technology as well as science and science fiction.
Annalee Newitz
Larger Post Panamax ships are critical to securing America’s position in a global market, and all our ports, including Jaxport, must be deep enough to handle them.
Ander Crenshaw
There is a small world of people who are very interested in contemporary art and a slightly bigger world of people who look at contemporary art. But then there is a much larger world that doesn’t realise how influential art is on things that they actually look at.
Marc Jacobs
America, 5 years after this brutal attack, is testament that a Nation conceived in liberty and equality will endure. It is a triumph of millions of Americans but it is also the triumph of an idea larger than any one person, larger than any one nation.
Nick Rahall
The more I thought about myself, the weaker I got. The more I recognized that I was serving a purpose larger than myself, the stronger I got.
Eric Greitens
I write larger than life. It’s what I do.
James Patterson
All that you may achieve or discover you will regard as a fragment of a larger pattern of the truth which from the separate approaches every true scholar is striving to descry.
Abbott L. Lowell
I have a cell phone that doesn’t behave like a phone: It behaves like a computer that makes calls. Computers are becoming an integral part of daily life. And if people don’t start designing them to be more user-friendly, then an even larger part of the population is going to be left out of even more stuff.
Alan Cooper
Believe in something larger than yourself… get involved in the big ideas of your time.
Barbara Bush
English does have a larger vocabulary than other languages because of its history as the primary language of science and its global reach.
David Crystal
Some of my scripts need the larger catchment area of Bollywood. But some suit Telugu films.
Ram Gopal Varma
Big teams are absolutely vital if you want to achieve certain results when you’re working on larger scales, both in terms of physical size and productive quantities.
Virgil Abloh
The larger the state, the more callous it becomes… the colder its heart. It is also true that the bigger the corporation, the more callous its heart. But unlike the state, corporations have competition and have no police powers.
Dennis Prager
If President Trump were to say, ‘I’m going to go to San Juan to see that nasty mayor,’ I would receive him with open arms because democracy is larger than me.
Carmen Yulin Cruz
I believe that human beings are desperate, always, to belong to something larger than themselves.
David Whyte
There are periods when you feel really good. You feel the ball is bigger. The court is larger. You feel like you can’t miss. And then there are periods when you feel, ‘OK, I’m not feeling great.’ But I still need to try to find a way to win.
Caroline Wozniacki
I think having nature be a part of people’s lives helps all of us see ourselves as part of something larger.
Ethan Hawke
War is chaotic and when you start having a larger scale film and you have a lot of safety protocols and choreography, I would imagine it becomes more difficult.
Adrien Brody
I decided early on that I wanted to participate in the greater American experience, rather than the parochial one in Mississippi. But I have an urge as a writer to meld the Southern experience into the larger American one.
Richard Ford
Once I came up with the ‘Stone Cold’ thing, it was like a snowball rolling down a hill; it just kept getting larger and larger, and I wasn’t afraid to push the envelope.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
In traditional 3D printing, the gantry size poses an obvious limitation for the designer who wishes to print in larger scales and achieve structural and material complexity.
Neri Oxman
If we want people to vote, we need to make it a larger part of their self-image.
Adam Grant
And this thesis is somewhat connected with general social and political observations, because it establishes the fact that the number of consumers is considerably larger than the number of producers, a fact which exercises a not inconsiderable social and political pressure.
Hjalmar Schacht
I never sit down to write anything personal unless I know the subject is going to go beyond my own experience and address something larger and more universal.
Meghan Daum
Actors ought to be larger than life. You come across quite enough ordinary, nondescript people in daily life and I don’t see why you should be subjected to them on the stage too.
Ninon de L’Enclos
I would sort out all the arguments and see which belonged to fear and which to creativeness. Other things being equal, I would make the decision which had the larger number of creative reasons on its side.
Katharine Butler Hathaway
In a much larger sense, the problem of Sabah is directly influenced by the duplicity of imperial Britain. For whatever devious reason, the dismantling of the British empire created divisions and violence due to ethnic and religious differences.
F. Sionil Jose
One of the biggest motivators is to be part of something larger than yourself.
Paul Jacobs
The coal industry is an even larger part of the Australian economy than it is of the American, and it has an enormous amount of political power.
Jeff Goodell
I have a divinely-ordained calling in my life to create a larger impact on human society.
Tanushree Dutta
I’d love there to be more larger models, but it’s just not going to happen. Designers love to design for slim girls.
I was in fact pretty much – by the larger culture, by the local culture, by people around me, by people on TV – encouraged to imagine women as something slightly inferior to men.
Junot Diaz
People need a sacred narrative. They must have a sense of larger purpose, in one form or another, however intellectualized. They will find a way to keep ancestral spirits alive.
E. O. Wilson
I look for two things when I am about to launch into a book. First, there has to be a dramatic arc to the story itself that will carry me, and the reader, from beginning to end. Second, the story has to weave through larger themes that can illuminate the world of the subject.
David Maraniss
There’s a larger conversation we need to have about the role of police officers, their relationship to the people as enemy or executioner, when they’re not supposed to be either.
Chance The Rapper
Blog-based businesses have lower cost structures and are more ‘authentic,’ and as a result are drawing larger shares of ad budgets.
Fred Wilson
The single best thing is, family comes first. Over everything. I can’t think of anything that has been more pervasive and played a larger part in my life than that simple lesson.
Hunter Biden
You cannot mistake Bush’s clarity of purpose. He believes in a story about freedom and opportunity that makes his followers feel like they aren’t just ticking their days down but are part of something larger than themselves.
Eric Liu
It’s not worth getting too excited about thinking about the larger picture. The larger picture doesn’t come into focus for an awfully long time.
Jonathan Safran Foer
But without a caring society, without each citizen voluntarily accepting the weight of responsibility, government is destined to grow even larger, taking more of your money, burrowing deeper into your lives.
Jeb Bush
Instead, I have an abundance mentality: When people are genuinely happy at the successes of others, the pie gets larger.
Stephen Covey
The ‘Fortune’ I came to work for on Jan. 25, 1954, was a monthly, with pages significantly larger than what you’re reading; ‘art’ covers that did not relate to stories inside; and a newsstand price of $1.25.
Carol Loomis
Children, and sometimes those of larger growth, will not read dialect.
Joseph Jacobs
When I think of what has happened in a larger sense, beyond myself, then I would not change anything.
Anita Hill
I really am not interested in making political music per se. I’m making personal records, but at the same time, I’m very much aware of my surroundings. And those surroundings, what’s going on in the larger picture, affects my everyday life and affects the way that I think.
I have this prominent feature on my face – I don’t know if you’ve noticed – but, well, they’re my lips. They tend to walk into a room before I do because they’re larger than average! So Chapstick’s a big one for me.
Chloe Bridges
When you have no money in New York, you’re living in a shoebox, and it’s freezing. When you have no money in L.A., you’re living in a slightly larger shoebox, and you can go outside and feel okay about your life for a minute.
Anna Kendrick
That larger story in ‘Salvage the Bones’ is just about survival, and I think that, in the end, there are things about this novel and about these characters’ experiences that make their stories universal stories.
Jesmyn Ward
As a designer, I always want to put out to a larger public. I truly believe that all bodies are beautiful, and that’s what makes our world exciting.
Zac Posen
There is, of course, no larger mass hysteria in American history than the epidemic of racism.
Kevin Young
For all it is a smaller country in terms of geography, Holland is the most closely aligned market to the U.K. in terms of trend. It is a big nation of card-makers and paper crafters, and Germany’s market is at least five times larger than over here.
Sara Davies
When a change in how some element of one’s business is conducted becomes an order of magnitude larger than what that business is accustomed to, then all bets are off.
Andy Grove
Each one of us fulfills a piece of a larger puzzle.
Eric McCormack
I wanted to go from seeing the individual patient to seeing the plural – the whole population as a market. You want to see the larger population, yet at the same time you need to understand the impact of decisions on individuals.
Risa Lavizzo-Mourey
You know, larger than life is always better than smaller than life in politicians. And, you know, God save us from mediocrities.
Joe Klein
The clan is nothing more than a larger family, with its patriarchal chief as the natural head, and the union of several clans by intermarriage and voluntary connection constitutes the tribe.
Charles Eastman
I already own two houses – one in Malad and another in Thane – but I sold off the Thane apartment and bought one in Bandra, because it was convenient and larger than my other homes.
Daisy Shah
Boxing should focus on pitting champion versus champion – those are the fights that everyone wants to see. The sports also needs to work on developing new heroes and personalities. I’d like to see more vignettes on fighters, focusing on their lives, goals and stories. Boxers need to be larger than life.
Sugar Ray Leonard
In short, no pattern is an isolated entity. Each pattern can exist in the world only to the extent that is supported by other patterns: the larger patterns in which it is embedded, the patterns of the same size that surround it, and the smaller patterns which are embedded in it.
Christopher Alexander
Voyagers discover that the world can never be larger than the person that is in the world; but it is impossible to foresee this, it is impossible to be warned.
James Baldwin
Food choices are something fundamental you can control about yourself: what you take into your body. When so many other things are out of control and your influence over climate change – all these much larger issues – it’s very hard to see any results or any progress. But everybody can see progress around food.
Michael Pollan
The great increase in longevity has produced a surge in the desire to accumulate assets for retirement. It has outpaced the ability of the private sector to produce assets, so we need a larger government debt.
William Vickrey
Every coach in every sport, one of their larger concerns is the balance between work and rest. We all think about it all the time.
Stan Van Gundy
All my life, Americans have been accustomed to thinking of theirs as ‘the richest, freest’ country in the world. By most measurements, it was long a contender for that honor, and – among the larger countries, if equal weight were given to wealth and indices of freedom – probably did deserve to be so described.
Conrad Black
We look at life from the back side of the tapestry. And most of the time, what we see is loose threads, tangled knots and the like. But occasionally, God’s light shines through the tapestry, and we get a glimpse of the larger design with God weaving together the darks and lights of existence.
John Piper
Snoop Dogg has this larger than life image which is so not true because when you meet him in person he’s so humble, loves his kids and enjoys his life.
Amazingly enough, athletic achievement is one of those things that seems larger than life at points. I think we all look to sport for inspirations.
John Cena
Bill Gore from Goretex was a very strong influence because he was one of the first larger companies to experiment with freedom in the workplace.
Ricardo Semler
‘Out of many, one’ is the national motto, and what the Founders imagined it meant is that out of the great and celebrated differences between us comes one nation and one larger purpose.
Mike Gallagher
If I got dropped tomorrow or every single I released from now on tanked, I’d be devastated, but I’d also still be doing this. I’d still be writing songs. I’d still be recording them. I was doing that for four years in Nashville. This is just on a larger stage.
Maren Morris
In a larger sense, we all write our own destiny.
Chanda Kochhar
I was always looking for relatability, because I am not someone cut out for larger than life roles.
Abhay Deol
I think of myself as making independent films within the studio system. Yes, I’ve made movies with significantly larger budgets, and I’ve also made movies with smaller budgets.
Doug Liman
In the society, where people are just parts in a larger machine, individuals are unable to develop fully.
Friedrich Schiller
We in the industrialized world make a greater difference because our ecological footprint, our impact on the condition of the environment, is 40 to 50 times larger than that of people in the developing world.
Maurice Strong
We are made for larger ends than Earth can encompass. Oh, let us be true to our exalted destiny.
Catherine Booth
On stage you look much larger than you are. You can have subtle changes of timing; how you place a punch line in a joke or movement or emotion according to an audience.
Sylvester McCoy
The larger your audience, the smaller your vocabulary and range of referents – the fewer your means of expression. You can’t rely on the luxury of intimacy.
Joshua Cohen
As an artist, as I design and lay out a page, the less-important things, things I want you to spend less time looking at, I draw them very small, maybe even silhouette them. The more-important pivotal scenes, I draw them larger, maybe even a double-page spread.
Jim Lee
When you launch a surgical operation, you must already be well deployed to follow it through with larger forces. That complicates matters: you need to be ready for a full-fledged campaign on the operational level and have the diplomatic backing lined up as well.
Ehud Barak
U.S. trade policy is not just about the relationship between our nation and other countries. It is part of a larger conversation about living wage, consumer protection, job security, and a better quality of life for all Americans.
Marcia Fudge
Real change occurs from the bottom up; it occurs person to person, and it almost always occurs in small groups and locales and then bubbles up and aggregates to larger vectors of change.
Paul Hawken
I liked helping talent with their matches prior to my injury. Obviously, now as a producer it becomes more a larger responsibility than just me as a talent giving advice. What I didn’t know was I didn’t know how fulfilling it could actually be.
Tyson Kidd
We see ourselves as part of a larger gaming ecosystem: You’ve got broadcasters, game developers, sponsors, and of course the video platforms like TwitchTV.
Justin Kan
More than stock prices or product launches, Silicon Valley’s legacy will be defined by whether tech leaders step up to contribute to the larger American experiment.
Ro Khanna
Although racism does, of course, occur in individual acts, these acts are part of a larger system that we all participate in. The focus on individual incidences prevents the analysis that is necessary in order to challenge this larger system.
Robin DiAngelo
Tragedy is one of the larger prices we pay for being alive. No one ever sidesteps tragedy. It is always there, shadowing us.
Douglas Kennedy
In reading, you sense the divine: the things that are larger and greater and more mysterious than yourself.
Richard Flanagan
Rap actually took root in the Negro community, and then in the Hispanic community, long before it impacted on the larger American community as a whole.
Archie Shepp
The larger the disaster, the more necessary it is to have the government as the principal driver of recovery.
Irwin Redlener
Larger deficits are necessary and proper means to mitigate unemployment as the far greater evil in terms of human welfare.
William Vickrey
The history of fossil-fuel development has always been that certain people are expendable. What’s changed is that new, larger populations are now considered expendable.
Josh Fox
The present assault upon capital is but the beginning. It will be but a stepping-stone to others, larger and more sweeping, till our political contests will become a war of the poor against the rich.
Stephen J. Field
Mike Tyson has become larger than life.
Thomas Hauser
I like a woman who has a vocabulary larger than ‘shoes’ and ‘handbags.’ But a nice pair of legs to go in the shoes is always good, too.
Kirk Acevedo
We experimented with stuff that some might find crazy, but we wanted to widen and make the spectrums of influence much larger, because house and electronic music is about freedom.
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo
As someone with a deep faith in competition and the market, I also know that markets only work with tough enforcement of the rules that guarantee competition and fair play – and that the pressure to break those rules only gets stronger as the amount of money involved gets larger.
Eliot Spitzer
The institution of marriage works better when there’s a spiritual connection. If you’re marrying just for the sake of the woman, then you may lose interest in each other very soon. When we marry in the interest of the Holy Spirit with the intention of serving God and humanity, then it gives a much larger perspective.
A. R. Rahman
As he enters his final term, with the elegiac music playing out there in the distance, Barack Obama will use the history that he has come to embody and, perhaps, even to fulfill, as part of a larger project that never will be completed but only finished, over and over again.
Charlie Pierce
The larger the audience the better. The more pockets in the world, the more interesting and exciting because it just makes it that much more liberating. This makes it that much more liberating for the various facets of creativity to be explored.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Johnny Cash has always been larger than life.
Kris Kristofferson
Everyone has a responsibility towards this larger family of man, but especially if you’re privileged, that increases your responsibility.
Susan Sarandon
The thing about Texas is that it’s a little larger than life.
Lauren Shuler Donner
I didn’t go to school for illustration. I did larger pieces, mostly drawings and paintings, and minored in video, but when I moved to N.Y.C., I didn’t have a studio space anymore and downsized to my desk and started illustrating. I started a greeting card company and sold cards all over the city.
Abbi Jacobson
Sometimes, I have themes that interest me or that touch on larger issues but, really, I’m just trying to figure out the plot, or how the characters work. I’m trying to make the best story I possibly can.
Brian Selznick
With the recent news that the State of Florida has agreed to purchase 181,000 acres of U.S. Sugar land, we have an historic opportunity for our larger restoration efforts and for the people of Florida. This too will not come without difficult challenges, but it reminds us that anything is possible.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
I think the larger productions in India are very methodical and pretty much on the ball in terms of work. When I say work, I mean pre-production and the homework that’s required.
Ali Fazal
Russia, at the start of the 21st century, at least in its larger cities, very much resembled the United States of the early 1990s: being gay was no longer criminal or shameful, but it was still not a topic for polite conversation or public discussion.
Masha Gessen
Good habits, which bring our lower passions and appetites under automatic control, leave our natures free to explore the larger experiences of life. Too many of us divide and dissipate our energies in debating actions which should be taken for granted.
Ralph W. Sockman
I always had a larger view. I’m interested in real life – my family, my friends. I have tried never to define myself by my success, whatever that is. My happiness is way beyond roles and awards.
Amy Adams
In addition to joblessness, of course, by the working of supply and demand, when you have a larger number of people unemployed, wages do not rise at the normal level, so that we had last year a drop in real wages.
Tim Bishop
I don’t think there are many larger lessons to be found in sports.
Gregg Easterbrook
And this speaks to the larger problem that no one wants to talk about: the restoration of the Roman rite is a precondition for a long-term fix for the problem.
Richard Morris
Today, there are more opportunities for writers in terms of access to larger success, but it’s more difficult to publish a literary novel in the lower ranges. In other words, you almost have to hit a home run. You can hit a triple, maybe, but nobody’s interested in a single.
James Lee Burke
Miami’s not anybody’s poor cousin. It’s an aspiration to live in this town, not something you have to do to promote yourself like some of the larger cities.
Iggy Pop
There will be, and should be, reams and reams of analysis, even praise, for our friend but also even larger measures of non-analysis and, certainly, condemnation for James Baldwin, the Negro writer.
Amiri Baraka
Due to my work, I tend to stay in hotels a lot of the time, and I generally prefer smaller hotels, as you tend to get better service than in the larger hotels.
Jools Holland
I’m against unanswerable concentrations of power, whether that be government or private industry or religious figures – anybody who is not accountable to the larger social climate or society for the power they wield, that concerns me. I’m very pro-democracy.
Daniel Suarez
I guess I see ‘Goo’ half as a really New York record because I think there are a lot of really particular New York references on it, but I also see it, for us, as the first of our records that really opened up to the larger world around us.
Lee Ranaldo
Your tenacity is a larger deciding factor in your success than however good or bad an actor you may be. I feel like that’s just something that cannot be overstated enough for people getting into the business. You have to really want it more than anybody else.
Matt Letscher
A writer’s job is to give the reader a larger vision of the world.
Natalie Goldberg
When presidents decide to litigate an issue to protect their policy decisions, they are more likely to act judiciously, and with an eye toward compromise, because they can see the larger implications for the legacy of their office.
Asha Rangappa
Europe today is the most secular region in the world. Europe is the only region in the world experiencing population decline. Wherever you turn today the more religious the community, the larger on average are their families.
Jonathan Sacks
A lot of my work, the subject is film and television itself, and history, and how that kind of coincides with larger cultural history and memory.
Martine Syms
Solar makes electricity expensive for two inherently physical reasons. Sunlight is dilute, requiring 10 to 15 times as much materials and mining, and up to 5,000 times more land, than non-renewables. And sunlight is unreliable, which reduces the value of solar as it becomes a larger part of energy supplies.
Michael Shellenberger
Rumors sound of galleries asking artists for upsized art and more of it. I’ve heard of photographers asked to print larger to increase the wall power and salability of their work. Everything winds up set to maximum in order to feed the beast.
Jerry Saltz
Beyond the Catholic exclusionary paradigm is a larger one which is the Christian one. Christians claim that if you don’t believe in Christ, you can’t get to heaven. Well that eliminates two thirds of the world’s population!
Neale Donald Walsch
What grows from our head is something that we should love. The larger society can love it or not, but it’s not their decision to make.
A’Lelia Bundles
If you can’t put problems in your own backyard to rest, then how can you deal with larger issues?
Mahesh Bhatt
The financial report makes it very clear that if we got into honest budgeting today, that in fact we would find ourselves with a much larger deficit than we have today.
Jim Costa
Acting can truly take a toll on your nerves. I mean, we have to be larger than life. Worse, I’ve seen actors acting off the sets, too.
Preity Zinta
I do have that compulsion to organize moments into a larger thing.
Bennett Miller
When we’re looking at strategic partners, it may be that they’re larger partners or big corporations or start-ups. But, when you look at Gilt and places like Amazon and Starbucks, they’re all places where it’s a lot of foot traffic or digital traffic.
Troy Carter
The influence of culture and arts is much larger than the influence of economy sometimes.
Park Won-soon
For us as players, revenue sharing, getting a larger percentage of the pie, is important, but also the overall growth of that pie is important.
Ryan Fitzpatrick
I think it’s very important to always make sure that you’re talking to the entire coalition and to as many Americans as possible; not to go chasing after one little group or another. The Democrats would bring new groups into their party and not notice that larger groups are going out the back door.
Grover Norquist
High-performance people have larger, more expanded comfort zones than most!
Dan Pena
European countries give much larger shares of aid for poverty relief than the U.S.
Angus Deaton
Humankind has never transitioned to energy sources that are more costly, less reliable, and have a larger environmental footprint than the incumbent – and yet that’s precisely what adding large amounts of solar and wind to the grid requires.
Michael Shellenberger
A forest – the word dates back to the Norman occupancy, when it meant an area set aside for England’s violent new masters to hunt boar and deer – is necessarily larger than a wood. It belonged to the king and was a fit place for his recreation.
John Burnside
What I liked about American movies when I was a kid was that they’re sort of larger than life and I think I’m still suffering from that reaction.
Guy Ritchie
The world has become a larger place. The universe has been expanding, and Perl’s been expanding along with the universe.
Larry Wall
The end of the First World War had thrown Germany’s youth into great turmoil. The reins of power had fallen from the hands of a deeply disillusioned older generation, and the younger ones drew together in larger and smaller groups to blaze new paths or, at least, to discover a new star to steer by.
Werner Heisenberg
‘Dhadak’ has its own individuality and a story that deserves to be told to a larger audience.
Ishaan Khatter
IBM, Microsoft, the profit they made was larger than the top four banks in China put together… But where did the money go?
Jack Ma
The cultural decoding that many American writers require has become an even harder task in the age of globalisation. The experience they describe has grown more private; its essential background, the busy larger world, has receded.
Pankaj Mishra
Australia is properly speaking an island, but it is so much larger than every other island on the face of the globe, that it is classed as a continent in order to convey to the mind a just idea of its magnitude.
Charles Sturt
The funny thing about advertising is that it’s not a zero-sum game… Historically, in the digital ad world, pie has gotten larger and it’s possible for everyone to win, and it’s perfectly possible that will continue to be true for quite some time.
Eric Schmidt
Hollywood is the kind of town that likes to make everything larger than life: movie premieres, aging actress’ lips, and murders. Actors come from all over the world to find their sliver of fame on the street of L.A. Many stars rise, but many more fall.
Rob Manuel
If you consider each individual tin as just the building block for a larger recipe, it doesn’t really make much difference whether it comes from a tin, or whether it’s fresh because it’s just being used in a lot of other things.
Jack Monroe
My dad worked with Mary Jackson very closely at one point. I knew Katherine Johnson as well. They were all part of this group of black engineers and scientists within this larger NASA community.
Margot Lee Shetterly
The way I work, the interview never becomes larger than the person being interviewed.
Ken Burns
‘Horse Soldiers’ is the untold story of how a small band of U.S. Special Forces soldiers secretly entered Afghanistan in 2001, just five weeks after September 11, saddled up on horses, and rode to an improbable victory against a vastly larger Taliban and Al Qaeda army.
Doug Stanton
It was natural to see the struggle for dignity for black people in America as a sister struggle of the Jewish struggle. So growing up, it was always a part of my breakfast cereal to think of myself as someone who was part of a larger struggle.
Eugene Jarecki
The larger picture here is that a North Korea with nuclear weapons adds to the larger proliferation risk.
Susan Rice
When it comes to brains, size matters. It’s not all that matters, of course. Whales and dolphins have brains that are larger than humans’, but few of the flippered and fluked set win tenure at Stanford. Our brains are the largest in proportion to body size, and they’re also highly sophisticated.
Seth Shostak
There is not a single indication in man’s wonderful mechanism that he was created for a life of poverty. There is something larger and grander for him in the divine plan than perpetual slavery to the bread-winning problem.
Orison Swett Marden
You’ll find individuals agreeing on this, but when they get into collective societies and larger groups they find it difficult to achieve group agreement.
Neale Donald Walsch
Obama’s numbers fell by a slightly larger amount over his first few months because he enjoyed much more support right at the start from Republicans, support that eroded quickly.
Kristen Soltis Anderson
Smog is affecting larger parts of China, and environmental pollution has become a major problem, which is nature’s red-light warning against the model of inefficient and blind development.
Li Keqiang
To try to write a grand cosmical drama leads necessarily to myth. To try to let knowledge substitute ignorance in increasingly larger regions of space and time is science.
Hannes Alfven
Wambaugh’s naturalistic portrait of the cop world turned ‘Centurions’ and ‘The Blue Knight’ (1972) into bestsellers, but his next two books made him relevant to a larger audience and to the next generation of crime writers.
Sarah Weinman
To me, getting to do music and videos, you work on a character. Being onstage is acting; you get to be larger than life and larger than yourself.
Carrie Underwood
In 1908, there was a persuasive demonstration of the power of high-speed, low-mass asteroids in rural Siberia. The Tunguska impactor iced millions of pine trees and about a zillion mosquitoes – and was no larger than an office building.
Seth Shostak
I think of childhood as an explosion of creativity. For most people, growing up and earning a living means leaving all that behind. But an artist never leaves that behind. Edwin Mullhouse was my way of exploring the child as artist and, under the guise of childhood, something larger.
Steven Millhauser
‘The Bradshaws’ is the appropriately inappropriate English title given to an enigma – some hundreds of thousands of mysterious rock art paintings scattered through the wilds of the Kimberley, an area larger than Germany in the remote, scarcely populated northwest of Australia.
Richard Flanagan
Black Bolt is typically a stoic leader, part of a larger cast of Inhumans who get their hands dirty in ways that he doesn’t.
Charles Soule
You spend a much larger part of your life being old, not young.
Douglas Coupland
Los Angeles for many years had operated with a police department that was far smaller than other police departments had in areas of comparable or larger size, New York and Chicago being the most obvious examples.
Scott Turow
There’s no pressure on me to be a particular weight. But I loathe being renowned as a ‘larger’ model. It makes me cringe.
Sophie Dahl
We’ve managed to motion-track the silkworm’s movement as it is building its cocoon. Our aim was to translate the motion-capture data into a 3D printer connected to a robotic arm in order to study the biological structure in larger scales.
Neri Oxman
In the larger world, tribalism is an enormous problem, as it ever has been: both strength and idiocy borne from belonging.
Jane Hamilton
First of all, you want to do the soaking with almost all of the larger beans because that will take care of the gas, and second of all… they want to be seasoned and flavored.
Crescent Dragonwagon
Even as I was writing ‘Empire State,’ I knew there were more adventures for the main character, private detective Rad Bradley, to have. I also knew that the world was far larger than what I’d presented in book one.
Adam Christopher
Well-roundedness comes not from sitting in a classroom but from experiencing the larger world.
Alex Tabarrok
I’m not one of those people who’s so blinded by my own work and my sweat. It’s kind of risky writing a memoir when you’re really part of a larger universe.
The arteries are found in nearly every part of the animal body, with the exception of the hairs, nails, and epidermis; and the larger trunks usually occupy the most protected situations, running, in the limbs, along the flexor side, where they are less exposed to injury.
Henry Gray
I believe that we are given strength and help from a power much larger than ourselves. I believe if I humble myself that this power will come through me, and help me create work that is bigger than I would have ever been able to have done alone.
Rebecca Wells
Your life is like a play with several acts. Some of the characters who enter have short roles to play, others, much larger. Some are villains and others are good guys. But all of them are necessary; otherwise, they wouldn’t be in the play. Embrace them all, and move on to the next act.
Wayne Dyer
As Looker got larger, the talented people we hired started to see things that we couldn’t. And what had looked like a company the three of us could run out of our houses for a few hours a day became something bigger. Much bigger.
Marc Randolph
Whoever’s designing for plus-size doesn’t get it. The entire garment needs to be reconceived. You can’t just take a size 8 and make it larger.
Tim Gunn
But if Russia is to be part of this larger zone of peace it cannot bring into it its imperial baggage. It cannot bring into it a policy of genocide against the Chechens, and cannot kill journalists, and it cannot repress the mass media.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
If you want to build a larger physique that actually makes you look like you lift, you need to train your shoulders, back, triceps, glutes, and legs more frequently. You probably also need to suck it up and train them harder than you ever have before if you want them to grow.
James Haskell
Every once in a while, an election comes along, and who you are and what you believe gets subsumed in a larger tide. It just happens.
Evan Bayh
I really have no ulterior motive in taking on certain roles. I have no larger issue that I really want to show people. I’m an actor, that’s all. I just do what I do.
Sally Field
Smaller portions of good foods are more satisfying than larger portions of junk foods, especially if you pay attention to what you’re eating.
Dean Ornish
When you get a jean for a larger girl, you have to have them tailored for you. Tailoring is indeed everything.
Jill Scott
You see a lot of European influence coming in with bigger guys having a larger skill set, shoot the ball, handle the ball, pass the ball. I’m hoping that’ll develop into something I can do.
Kelly Olynyk
At the age of 14, I moved across town to Magdalen College School, Oxford, where science played a much larger role in the curriculum.
Tim Hunt
I was the tallest guy in the school, and I was very conscious of being larger than anybody – classmates and teachers.
James Arness
I didn’t know if I had the music for it or if I could pull off the larger concert experience. Then I realized if I can just continue to be myself, I’ll be all right.
Jason Mraz
Small amounts of philosophy lead to atheism, but larger amounts bring us back to God.
Francis Bacon
Well, we like to let down our hair and pep it up at the dances, but we keep it slower when we broadcast. We have to please everybody, and that softer music appeals to the larger amount of people. It’s like eating too much cake. You have to have your steak too.
Vaughn Monroe
I really just choose stories that are compelling, have interesting trends and characters, and hopefully say something larger about society.
David Grann
The larger the island of knowledge, the longer the shoreline of wonder.
Ralph W. Sockman
A poem I write is not just about me; it is about national identity, not just regional but national, the history of people in relation to other people. I reach for these outward stories to make sense of my own life, and how my story intersects with a larger public history.
Natasha Trethewey
With the premise that we look for technical co-founders to run a company, I view myself as being a coach to that technical co-founder. I can help them with their business issues, with the growth issues of taking a company from a very early stage to something much larger.
Peter Levine
If you choose to work at a larger company over a smaller company, you are more likely to be higher paid.
Julie Sweet
Every time a person sacrifices himself for a larger injustice, it aids in the cycle of change.
Amy Carter
I believe that nationalism is a very strong force, but there are other forces operating; there are tendencies pushing towards a larger picture, especially in Europe, I think; but I still think nationalism is real.
Peter Singer
In this larger conversation about diversity, we want to really show that we’re all the same. We are all experiencing the same stories.
Salim Akil
Logically, it may be argued that banks could indeed lower interest rates and make up their profits through larger borrowing volumes. But banks, in turn, could justify exorbitant rates by arguing that they cater to a riskier segment.
Sucheta Dalal
As more and more people adopt an urban lifestyle and cities continue to swell, not only does the risk of urban epidemics increase – something we haven’t seen much of for decades – but the need for larger emergency stockpiles can increase, too.
Seth Berkley
I have something in common with Nazis in that I am opposed to the radical Left. And when you oppose the radical Left, you end up being a part of a much larger group that includes Nazis in it.
Jordan Peterson
In sports entertainment, you can be larger than life.
Matt Riddle
Being Poet Laureate made me realize I was capable of a larger voice. There is a more public utterance I can make as a poet.
Rita Dove
Empowering innovations transform something that is complicated and expensive into something that is so much more simple and affordable that a much larger population can enjoy it.
Clayton M. Christensen
When I was doing larger than life roles in action entertainers they weren’t clicking.
Like the producers of crops, airplanes, and books, producers of natural gas provide goods to meet the size of their available market. The larger the market, the more they can produce, and the more revenue they can obtain to cover their fixed costs and invest in future development.
Robert Zubrin
People start panicking because they think it’s the end of everything. But the fact is, you know, books survived movies; books survived TV. Books are surviving manga and anime. Books will always be there in one form or another. You just have a larger palette of entertainment options.
John Scalzi
The development of exponential technologies like new biotech and AI hint at a larger trend – one in which humanity can shift from a world of constraints to one in which we think with a long-term purpose where sustainable food production, housing, and fresh water is available for all.
Arvind Gupta
Education is the great growth industry of the Third World. Since the Second World War, we have multiplied the number of children in school by four, with even larger multiples for secondary and university education.
Arthur Lewis
You can get so focused on a strategy and making it work that you lose sight of your larger mission.
Joe Sestak
Some types of environmental restoration projects are well-known; restored wetlands, for instance, or coal mine reclamation projects. Recently though, larger dam removal projects have started, a number of them in Washington state.
Matt Gonzalez
I think that personal experience is very important, but certainly it shouldn’t be a kind of shut-box and mirror-looking, narcissistic experience. I believe it should be relevant, and relevant to the larger things, the bigger things, such as Hiroshima and Dachau and so on.
Sylvia Plath
I would say the larger the pool you have to select from, the more likely you are to find the most compatible person for you if you have the right algorithms working on your behalf.
Sam Yagan
In Atlanta, with a large African-American population, Sosa is often considered a black man. In Miami and Los Angeles, with larger Hispanic populations, he is a Latino man, and the black label is rejected as robbing Hispanics of a hero.
Bill Dedman
The larger truth, the universal truth that you can give in a novel, is far greater than what you can give through journalism.
Oriana Fallaci
It doesn’t help to follow every rise and fall of your portfolio. It’s better to tune out the day-to-day shifts, in fact. But getting a handle on the larger picture will make you feel more secure, and that goes a long way in calming your fear.
Jean Chatzky
The black community now in many ways divided itself the way the larger white community divides itself, over class issues. And that race is no longer the bond that it once was. That’s one of the prices you pay for progress.
Ed Smith
Faith helps many people make sense of the world around them. Faith gives them a spiritual connection to something larger.
David Harsanyi
The challenge we face as a government is meeting expectations – not specific expectations, but the larger expectations: things that need to be changed and that Narendra Modi will do it as though he has a magic wand.
Nirmala Sitharaman
Schwarzenegger is big, he’s noisy, he’s larger than life, and he’s earned the credibility to be cast for the role of America’s Green superhero.
Tina Brown
I’m one of the larger mammals. Everyone in my family was large, mom and dad, my two older sisters. If you meet a skinny person in my family, you say, ‘And you are married to who?’
John Pinette
If you can give away free music, you can give away free electricity, free water. Those tiny jabs at a larger infrastructure are what make revolutions.
Chance The Rapper
My history is that I will create a character, and they will have a book to themselves, and then I’ll integrate the character into the larger world of all my books.
Michael Connelly
Our great history has been that people came to Michigan because you didn’t have to have a college degree to get a good-paying job. Consequently, we have got a larger number of our population that right now are facing outsourcing, et cetera, without higher or advanced degrees.
Jennifer Granholm
Tech companies don’t exist in a bubble; they draw from and feed into a larger community. Ideally, the relationship is symbiotic.
Ryan Holmes
I’m not larger than life, my personality is not larger than life, I promise you. But when I fight I am larger than life, I promise you that.
Justin Gaethje
I created jobs. Russ Feingold, during that same approximate 30 years, what did he do? He built government. He built it larger and more intrusive.
Ron Johnson
The UN’s unique legitimacy flows from a universal perception that it pursues a larger purpose than the interests of one country or a small group of countries.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
Part of running DC Comics is that it’s much larger than Image Comics is, or was. There’s a challenge to being one of the industry leaders in that everything you do is scrutinized and watched.
Jim Lee
After assembly complete, when we have a larger crew on orbit, a more complex vehicle, more laboratories and more robot arms, maybe we’ll have room for specialists. But right now we don’t.
John L. Phillips
There is still refinement needed – we are working on being able to do the same things at lower light levels and with a larger field of view.
Stefan Hell
People always remark on how I’m not as tall as I look in film. I tell them about the time I saw Lassie on a studio lot, and she was this tiny scruffy dog. Film makes you larger than life.
Ann Reinking
Turkeys are perfect for feeding larger gatherings.
Pippa Middleton
The actor always must be in the scene, not above the scene. To communicate any larger ideas is my problem; it’s how the narrative is constructed and directed that hopefully does it.
James Gray
At the federal level, as a member of Congress, you have one vote out of 435, and in the Senate, it’s one out of 100. So, the ability to get some stuff done exists as a much larger opportunity at a local level than in the federal government.
All of the marketplaces like Prosper, LendingClub, etc., as they get larger, they flip from being retail capital to institutional capital.
Naval Ravikant
I struggle with arrangements. I take forever doing them. It gets to a point where I’ve been playing around with things on loops for days. I always paint in broad strokes – very quickly, I’ll feel out the larger structure – but it’s putting the details in that I find the hardest part.
English football is evolving. It’s no longer the game it used to be. Apart from the larger quantities of money which make it more attractive to foreign stars, the mentality is also different – everybody looks to win games no matter what, even if it means taking risks.
Gianfranco Zola
I am a bit difficult to be around sometimes. I can be stubborn on a lot of things, and I’m set, but I can also adapt in a conflict situation and don’t hold on to an ego. I end up seeing the larger good and adapt to it, provided it benefits me. I may come across as a cold person, but I am extremely sentimental.
Emraan Hashmi
Squid don’t eat jellyfish, but they eat the things that eat the jellyfish. Jellyfishes put on a lightshow to attract a larger predator. It’s caught in the clutches of something like a fish and has no hope for escape unless its lightshow attracts something bigger that will attack their attacker.
Edith Widder
Toad talked big about all he was going to do in the days to come, while stars grew fuller and larger all around them, and a yellow moon, appearing suddenly and silently from nowhere in particular, came to keep them company and listen to their talk.
Kenneth Grahame
With television, you can make anyone look larger than life.
Robert Dallek
Cop shows are by definition melodramatic; they’re larger than life. They create very stark contrasts and conflicts emotionally. They’re provocative, assuming they grapple with – to the extent that cop shows are mirrors of the culture.
Steven Bochco
A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.
Paul Klee
When I moved to Stanford I began to pursue the line of research I have been following ever since, namely trying to understand the larger implications of fractional quantum hall discovery.
Robert B. Laughlin
We have to do more than keep media giants from growing larger; they’re already too big. We need a new set of rules that will break these huge companies to pieces.
Ted Turner
The Virginia class is an extremely successful program, and we’d like to keep it that way, and we’re confident in our performance. But the Ohio replacement is a significantly larger ship.
Phebe Novakovic
Be larger than your task.
Orison Swett Marden
You think of George Washington, this man who was larger than life, and in some ways he was. But at the same time, he’s just a person.
Benjamin Walker
I do like my rock stars to be a little larger than life. I don’t mind the earnest ones at all, but I do like a bit of individuality.
Elton John
Out of all the climbers of this generation, I was the one who became known to the larger public. Many of them – not all of them, but many of them – understood they had only one chance to use me for their personal gain. And it’s very easy to use me.
Reinhold Messner
I’ve always been a big guy – I was much larger and stronger than my peers when I was 13 years old.
Ronnie Coleman
My first film was a big dud at the box office, and my second film did decently. I used to wonder how it would feel to have a hit film. I thought I’d be larger than life, but I’m not feeling anything I imagined. It’s a completely different experience.
Shraddha Kapoor
Greece’s unprecedented fiscal effort, which was more than planned, has triggered much larger contractions of economic activity and the tax base than the original program had assumed.
Charles Dallara
Clothing for larger sizes doesn’t have to look frumpy and old; it should seamlessly integrate fashion – like Universal Standard.
Iskra Lawrence
I think place and time for me is often a matter of convenience, something I can use to another end rather than something I’m trying to define because it’s somehow fascinating to me in itself. It’s more what the place can do for the larger goals I have for the work.
Alice McDermott
I wouldn’t want to do a Bollywood film per se, but I would like to do an Indian-language film. For some reason I think Bollywood has become synonymous with commercial cinema, which is song and dance and everything that is larger than life, and I am interested in the reality.
Freida Pinto
More retirees, longer life expectancy, larger benefits, and fewer workers – these trends have meant substantial increases in the payroll tax. Since the social security program began, the payroll tax has increased more than 500 percent.
Alex Tabarrok
The New Gods really need to be larger than life. There’s an operatic quality to them, and they need to be handled pretty carefully, or else you’ll go too far and be almost like a caricature.
Cliff Chiang
Photography gives you the opportunity to use your sensibility and everything you are to say something about and be part of the world around you. In this way, you might discover who you are, and with a little luck, you might discover something much larger than yourself.
Peter Lindbergh
When national policy becomes hostage to regional interests, the federal government becomes paralysed and would be unable to act in the larger national interest.
Sanjaya Baru
After the global financial crisis of 2008, populist uprisings had sprouted across Europe. Putin and his strategists sensed the beginnings of a larger uprising that could upend the Continent and make life uncomfortable for his geostrategic competitors.
Franklin Foer
I became a larger than life figure for one reason only. When you’re quoted in the ‘Wall Street Journal’, the ‘New York Times’, constantly as the expert in the business people assume you’re a lot bigger than you are. And then I had to run like hell to catch up with my own image.
Barbara Corcoran
Sometimes I have little movies that I’ve made that I wish would be seen by a larger audience. I have a horror movie called ‘Sensored’ which I’m very creepy and disgusting in, and then I have a family drama called ‘The Legends of Nethiah’ which has a science-fiction B-story.
Robert Picardo
Being a parent gives you historical perspective. You have thoughts about how you fit into a larger generational drama – those who came before and those who will come after.
Marianne Williamson
The generosity of the super-rich is sometimes proffered as evidence they’re contributing as much to the nation’s well-being as they did decades ago when they paid a much larger share of their earnings in taxes.
Robert Reich
Sometimes movies that I’m in that I have a leading role don’t necessarily get the biggest release, so it’s a difficult thing between balancing indies that have uncertain futures and maybe larger films that have guaranteed releases that you have a smaller part in.
Gillian Jacobs
With me serving as the president, we filed a $3-million lawsuit against the league and its member clubs in an attempt to win increased pension benefits and a larger share Of television revenue.
Ted Lindsay
I’m a teacher still, but with a much larger classroom.
Rick Riordan
As a cohort, millennials are unique in their social consciousness, and they make decisions based on that awareness. Keep them engaged at work by showcasing a culture of paying it forward and tying the day-to-day into the larger purpose of the organization.
Kathryn Minshew
Astronomers are obsessed with building larger and larger telescopes. There are two promises that we make with bigger telescopes: that they can see fainter things and that they see more detail. But it’s been really hard to follow through on that second promise because of atmospheric distortion.
Andrea M. Ghez
People say you favor assassination, what do you think war is? Except that it’s assassination on a much larger scale, a much more horrific scale.
John Bolton
Occasionally I’ll be a producer for hire on a larger budget movie, but with Blumhouse Pictures, we mainly focus on micro-budget, under-$5-million-dollar movies. That’s what we’re in business to do, and that’s what we’re in business to make.
Jason Blum
All renewables thus require a material throughput – from mining to processing to installing to disposing of the materials later as waste – that is orders of magnitude larger than for non-renewable energy sources.
Michael Shellenberger
There are so many times where I may share a dirty joke or laugh at one, but the due restriction has to be there in one’s head when it comes to the larger audience.
Sajid Khan
American businesses and upper incomes pay a larger portion of the federal taxes of our national taxes than any country in the world.
Jim DeMint
In our education system, we’re so focused on the building blocks that sometimes we try to keep the kids from looking at the larger picture.
Ritesh Agarwal
Writing is a spiritual practice in that people that have no spiritual path can undertake it and, as they write, they begin to wake up to a larger connection. After a while, people tend to find that there is some muse that they are connecting to.
Julia Cameron
So far as I know, anything worth hearing is not usually uttered at seven o’clock in the morning; and if it is, it will generally be repeated at a more reasonable hour for a larger and more wakeful audience.
Moss Hart
The right of such control is already admitted by the State Socialists, though they maintain that, as a matter of fact, the individual would be allowed a much larger liberty than he now enjoys.
Benjamin Tucker
A lot of sports cars are just not designed for the larger gentleman.
Chris Harris
The truth of faith is a slender, glowing element that runs through even the seemingly ordinary and undramatic moments of existence. Even at low intensity, it is a steady source of illumination. Such religious truth is powerful even when it seems faint, even when it seems obscured by the larger events of history.
Eugene Kennedy
Ronald Reagan, who led the larger New Right project of re-sanctifying U.S. foreign policy after its Vietnam disaccreditation, felt compelled to drape his support for Central American death squads in the rhetoric of American exceptionalism.
Greg Grandin
I love essays, but they’re not always the best way to communicate to a larger audience.
Chris Abani
Full statehood in Delhi is a larger issue as compared to anti-corruption. For, only when the Delhi government gets its anti-corruption bureau back will it get the power of suspension and vigilance inquiries on corrupt officers of different departments of the government. That is how you can curb the corruption.
We used to approach a small 400-person show like an arena show, as if I was a star and I was coming out on stage in front of screaming people and that I was to be larger than life.
‘Pod’ was a significantly larger crew with Ilium Pictures co-producing. ‘Darling’ was bare bones. We had less than half of the crew that we had for ‘Pod.’
Lauren Ashley Carter
We see our mobile initiatives as a way to bring our intellectual properties and our gameplay experiences to a larger population than the tens or hundred million consumers that own a dedicated gaming system.
Reggie Fils-Aime
My films are larger than life.
Rohit Shetty
The electronic media introduced this idea to the larger audience very, very quickly. We spent years and years and years meeting with activists all over Europe to lay the groundwork for a political response, as we did here.
Jeremy Rifkin
In many ways, Scotland will benefit more than other parts of the UK when Universal Credit comes in. A larger percentage of people will see an increase in their income through moving into work or taking on more hours.
Iain Duncan Smith
Most of the things we do, we do for no better reason than that our fathers have done them or our neighbors do them, and the same is true of a larger part than what we suspect of what we think.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Campaigns fail if they waste resources courting voters who are unpersuadable or already persuaded. Their most urgent task is to find and persuade the few voters who are genuinely undecided and the larger number who are favorably disposed but need a push to actually vote.
James Surowiecki
No matter how we name and dissect inequality, we must keep explaining the larger downside of such concentrated extreme wealth.
Alissa Quart
The earth only has so much bounty to offer and inventing ever larger and more notional prices for that bounty does not change its real value.
Ben Elton
My parents were lured to America by the democracy here promised. In our family, freedom was a word to conjure by. Hoping for larger privileges for the growing family of children, they brought them to the New World, the world of many intellectual as well as material advantages.
Jenkin Lloyd Jones
It was through the private world of family that the public world of politics came alive for me: living in intimate proximity with people for whom larger questions of ideology and belief, as well as issues relating to politics and governance, were vivid daily realities.
Sonia Gandhi
By the immediate preservation of eggs for home consumption through the use of water glass or lime water, larger supplies of fresh eggs may be made available for marketing later in the season, when production is less and prices higher.
David F. Houston
Ocean planets might be very common in the universe because water is very common in the low-temperature environments where planets form and evolve. This might be especially true for super-Earths, which can retain volatiles more easily thanks to their larger mass and surface gravity.
Dimitar Sasselov
In modern life, we hide behind ourselves. In Shakespeare, there’s nowhere left to hide. It’s life, larger than life, and every actor has to raise their game to get there.
Ray Fearon
The money that bin Laden inherited was about 20 million dollars over the course of many years, not the much larger sums some have suggested. In 1994, his family cut him off.
Peter Bergen
Bioscience and biotech offer many opportunities. The U.S. focuses on the rich man; India has rich man diseases and poor man diseases. So you have a much larger set of opportunities.
Romesh Wadhwani
I have never been one to show off too much skin, and it’s not just because I’m a larger woman.
Nia Jax
One misconception I think is wrong is that being a larger size means, somehow, that you’re neglecting your body, or you don’t look after yourself, or you don’t love yourself enough to lose weight. We’ve been saturated with the idea that to be happy you must be thin, or to be healthy you must be thin.
Philomena Kwao
As entertainment and storytelling move in the direction of more immersive environments, binaural sound will begin to play a larger and larger role in those experiences.
Chris Milk
As far as a truly radical conscience, you have to take it as part of a larger thing, that it was sort of historical inevitability that with the coming of a leaguer society people would start to use drugs a lot more then they had before.
Lester Bangs
In terms of companies, they must stand for something bigger. They must be dedicated to something larger than financial results. I reject the Milton Friedman belief that a company’s sole responsibility is to the shareholders.
Srikumar Rao
Sports teams, people who follow sports teams, religion, churches, work – any company, I find that people just generally have a need to belong to something larger than themselves.
Sean Durkin
You could argue that as web audiences have grown larger and advertisers have demanded scale, the web has dumbed down – like the mainstream media we so mocked.
Nick Denton
I grew up in the large house and the larger garden of my parents in Altenberg. They were supremely tolerant of my inordinate love for animals.
Konrad Lorenz
I look to work with businesses that know what they are doing but need larger distribution or exposure.
Daymond John
If you are buying a larger turkey than usual, make sure it will fit in the oven.
Mary Berry
I became very famous, as a teenager, and my name and photo were splashed in all the media. They made me larger than life, so I wanted to live larger than life, and the only way to do that was to be intoxicated.
Cat Stevens
I truly believe the art’s larger than the artist. Who cares about John Steinbeck? I care about the Joad family.
Andre Dubus III
Supermarket tabloids and celebrity gossip shows are not just innocently shallow entertainment, but a fundamental part of a much larger movement that involves apathy, greed and hierarchy.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
I was used to playing misled youth, rough-and-tumble guys. It was nice to get back to a big-hearted, warm and gentle soul, a guy who is destined for something a lot larger than he ever expected.
Milo Ventimiglia
I’ve played Madison Square Garden and Jones Beach several times, but I personally don’t enjoy those larger venues. I much prefer theater or a performance space.
Jason Mraz
People often focus on the downsides of population growth but neglect the upsides. These upsides may even outweigh the downsides, making a larger population a good thing overall.
Ian Goldin
At the end of the day, I want the music industry to be larger than what it is today.
Daniel Ek
I think that literature is something that embraces a much larger experience than politics. It’s an expression of what is life, of what are all the dimensions of life. But politics is one among others.
Mario Vargas Llosa
Although a novel takes place in the larger world, there’s always some drive in it that is entirely personal – even if you don’t know it while you’re doing it.
Joan Didion
Harry Potter represents a much larger wave of cultural revolution that we’re all immersed in, and I believe it’s a spiritual revolution as well – a negative spiritual revolution.
Michael O’Brien
A belief may be larger than a fact.
Vannevar Bush
All action takes place, so to speak, in a kind of twilight, which like a fog or moonlight, often tends to make things seem grotesque and larger than they really are.
Carl von Clausewitz
Companies with aspirations to be larger publishers – Kabam, Kixeye, even Zynga – are moving aggressively off the Facebook platform to mobile and the open Web. Publishers aren’t convinced that the costs of being on Facebook are worth it.
Mitch Lasky
I do think that deciding between a particular discovery and a technological breakthrough – I would always think the impact is probably much larger for the technological breakthrough.
Joachim Frank
Obviously, when you get into larger budgets, you have less of that freedom, and I just – I’m not a person that tends to make stories for those larger budgets. To me, it’s not much fun to have that kind of pressure.
John Cameron Mitchell
When you get some easy baskets, the basket definitely looks like it’s much larger.
Scottie Pippen
Climate change is not a discrete issue; it’s a symptom of larger problems. Fundamentally, our society as currently designed has no future. We’re chewing up the planet so fast, in so many different ways, that we could solve the climate problem tomorrow and still find that environmental collapse is imminent.
