We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Last Year Quotes from Webb Simpson, Anna Lee, Malcolm Fraser, Jake Peavy, Amelie Mauresmo. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
I wanted to just come out and continue to improve my game, continue to improve my mental capacity to play well in tournaments. I’ve had a slow year compared to last year, but I’ve been pleased because I felt like I was getting better.
Oh, if I had only known then what I know now, I would have stopped it last year when I was still young.
Last year the National Sorry Day Committee consulted with stolen generations people in every State and Territory, and concluded that programmes set up in response to the Bringing Them Home Report are reaching only a small fraction of those they are intended to help.
When it’s my last year, I’ll probably let people know when that last pitch is thrown and say thanks and walk away.
I think I have handled things pretty well last year and this. What I have to do now is try do it even better.
I don’t know if it’s a romantic comedy but I’m in the beginning of the first of the season of ‘The West Wing.’ We shot it last year. I don’t know. If anyone asks me to be in one, I’ll jump on it.
Last year I traveled to the Middle East to visit with troops in Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
The CD is dedicated to our dog Nell, who passed away last year.
I have been lucky, of course. Like, last year, if I went out, I’d have to fight to chat someone up. This year, I look exactly the same, which is really scruffy, and yet lots of people seem to have just changed their minds and decided I’m really sexy.
I would also point out that many governments that chose not to support this war – certainly, the French president, Jacques Chirac, as I recall in April of last year, referred to Iraq’s possession of WMD.
I’ve spent the last year listening to Americans, and the state of the union that George W. Bush lives in is very different from the state that most hardworking Americans are living in.
Last year we said, ‘Things can’t go on like this’, and they didn’t, they got worse.
We’re the largest home improvement company today, and we did $30 billion last year, or less than 10 percent of the total amount of building materials sold in the U.S. So when people ask, how much runway left does Home Depot have, it’s an awful lot.
In fact, when I began selling ‘Phenomenal Woman’ T-shirts on International Women’s Day last year, the campaign was supposed to run just through March, for Women’s History Month. At the time, I hoped to sell around 500, maybe 1,000 T-shirts in total. We ended up selling 2,500 T-shirts on the first day alone.
Last year, in the year 2008, it just became normal to watch great American institutions crumble, almost dissolve like sand.
No, if it was up to me every record would be brand new studio material but Atlantic records asked me to put out a full live record because my tour really did do well last year.

Any time you sign a contract it means that you had a good season last year and that you need to improve yourself this season.
We’ve seen more reform in the last year than we’ve seen in decades, and we haven’t spent a dime yet. It’s staggering how the Recovery Act is driving change.
The year you win an Oscar is the fastest year in a Hollywood actor’s life. Twelve months later they ask, ‘Who won the Oscar last year?’
Talking money is crass; so I’m not going to tell you what I made last year.
In the Olympics, everything goes back to square one. The world champion or the world record holder or the ninth last year are fighting for the same medal, and you have got to go there like it was the first time.
Initially, I know that I handled it worse than she did and I think partly because I’ve always been… every bit of adversity I’ve faced up until the last year and a half is adversity I brought upon myself – or the opposing teams have given me.
I wrote about Herschell in my book ‘Shock Value,’ for which I interviewed him. We became friends; I had dinner with Herschell the last year before he died. He was elderly, but his mind was perfectly intact.
Business 2.0 was hugely profitable last year, and will be profitable this year.
Last year was a tough decision for me, to end my season so short. But it was the right decision for me, because right now I feel great. I can go out here and sprint full speed right now, but I’m just going to pace myself for April 5.
This last year I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that, and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up.
Last year people won more than one billion dollars playing poker. And casinos made twenty-seven billion just by being around those people.
I think it’s time to have a celebration of life and renew our vows. And this time we’re going to write the vows because they’re going to mean a lot more. We certainly put the ‘in sickness and in health’ vow to the test the last year and half.
Well, as you know, General Motors does not make hybrids. Ford only made 4,000 hybrids last year.
I gave a Christmas party last year – well, two Christmases ago – where I did a Sam Cooke show. I didn’t perform as R. Kelly. I performed the Sam Cooke show from 1964, when he performed at the Copacabana.
I was so nervous to turn 40, but the last year and a half has been the most fun I have ever had.
The lesson of the last year is this: foreign policy can’t be managed through the politics of personality, and our President would do well to take note of an observation John F. Kennedy made once he was in office – that all of the world’s problems aren’t his predecessor’s fault.
I am an English major in school with an emphasis in creative writing. I think hearing Maya Angelou speak at school last year was one of the best moments Stanford, at least, intellectually, had to offer.
Guys that are playing in the last year of their contracts are playing for their livelihood and that tends to come off as selfish.
Taxpayers have put more than $24 trillion on the line to resuscitate Wall Street after the economic meltdown of last year. With the help of this massive taxpayer support, the nation’s largest banks are posting record profits.
Everyone says I should really savour the last year, play as much as possible, really soak everything in. I’d most like to sit on the bench, or, even better, in the stands.
I’ve been living. I’ve been doing the writing thing. I’ve been being the family man. I’ve been traveling the world. I been to, like, 18 cities last year. I’ve been getting my thoughts together, trying to figure out what’s going on with hip-hop itself.
My last year of football I started having a couple of MMA fights, and bringing the weight down. It started in the pre-season of football, just to keep fit, and I did really well.
You can’t live on last year, you can’t live on the year before. I can’t bring in my 13 Pro Bowls in the locker room and say, look at me. No. That is gone. That is the best thing about the game of football is that everybody starts over.
Ryerson helped me because I was around acting all the time. It was pretty much all I thought about, even if I didn’t really get to practice every day; I definitely thought about it. Actually a lot of it was just sitting and watching, especially in my last year, but I think a good actor learns from everything.
Never ask yourself what you have learned… only ask yourself what are the circumstances which are different from last year. In that way, you can apply last year’s lessons.
Before my last year at Arsenal, when we won the FA Cup, I was really up and down, never really consistent, and never really put my mark on the team. I understand that then there were question marks over my name.
There are staples to my show. I have to be conscious about switching things up because I know people who saw me last year will say, ‘He did that last time.’ But if certain things work, they work.
I grew up in Texas, but that was 20 years ago. Last year, in Fort Worth, they had hail the size of softballs. We’re seeing more and more powerful storms, of all types, almost on a biblical level.
We owned a bearded collie for many years. Sophie. She was old, and she died last year.
The tax relief package enacted in 2001 was central to pulling the economy out of the post 9-11 recession. It’s the reason we’ve got low unemployment and have created more than two million jobs in the last year.
Mom was the one who taught me unconditional love. With Dad, I’d always felt there was something to live up to – expectations. But in the last year, we had a wonderful relationship.
Canada’s total exports into global markets reached a record high of $528.8 billion in 2014, the last year with fully available figures. A mere $18.8 billion of those exports went to China.
Free is not an alternative. My company did not turn a profit last year.
The fans in Dallas were hard on me my first year, but after having a great year last year they are now supporting me. It feels great to have my hard work pay off, especially when the fans made it hard for me.
I became friends with a lot of chefs. I was a judge on ‘Top Chef’ last year. It was a dream come true.
There is no question of the benefits that opening a market of a billion people will bring to American businesses. But as I said last year, this will test China and the world trade system.
I went to NYU drama school, so I was a very serious actress. I used to do monologues with a Southern accent, and I was really into drama and drama school. And then, in my last year of drama school, I did a comedy show, and the show became a big hit on campus.
I went with a friend to see Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas, in the last year that he was performing. He wasn’t necessarily on top form, but the way he could connect with an audience and the way he communicated through the lyrics was something I hadn’t ever really seen before.
And, as you recall, last year, people were asking us, don’t vote on the bill until you read every part of the bill. So, as a good attorney and as a good legislator, I think it’s my responsibility to read the amendments.
They want to wipe – in fact, the Democrat Party in their own platform last year wiped even – any reference to God completely from their platform.
In 2005, the last year of his life, Ahmad Abu Adass was 22 and still living with his parents in Beirut, Lebanon. He was kind and liked people, his friends later told investigators, but none of them thought he was very sophisticated.
What’s interesting is there are $12 billion of breaks in the energy bill that passed, yet we see that the sixth major oil companies in America last year made $1.1 trillion.
I only ever became conscious of how hairy I was when I got to Year Six, the last year of primary school.
The terrorists who committed the 2003 Istanbul attacks were locals, that is, Turks. And when filmmaker Theo van Gogh was murdered in the Netherlands last year, the murderer and his supporters were also part of the Muslim community.
Last year I think I made more from my Image books than anywhere else.
I was a very focused kid. I always had this crazy lifestyle… billions of jobs, two hours of gymnastics every day, handball, anything with a ball, really. I must have had ADHD or something. I was very energetic, and very small. I didn’t start growing until the last year of high school.
Ever since I did that 57.9 last year, the Americans have been analysing me in detail. You can see on the swimming web pages. They are breaking it down in every detail. How many strokes I take. How quick I am in and out of the wall.
We were so bad last year, the cheerleaders stayed home and phoned in the cheers.
I decide my future. I decide what I want to do. Nobody else. If I decide this will be my last year, maybe it is. If I decide it will be my last contract, I decide that. Nobody else. So I will decide when the moment is there.
I turned down twelve films last year… Huge money films, but I had no respect for the writer or the work.
This may be a dream, but I’ll say it anyway: I was supposed to be married last year, and I bought a gown. When I meet Nelson Mandela, I shall put on this gown and have the train of it removed and put aside, and kiss the ground that he walks on and then kiss his feet.
‘Hot Pursuit,’ ‘Pitch Perfect 2,’ ‘Trainwreck,’ and ‘Spy’ were all being done in the last year. All four of those movies I just mentioned are not rom-coms: they’re all about women doing different things.
At the moment, I’m afraid that the discipline system doesn’t give teachers the support that they need. One thing that I’ve been struck by is that the number of violent assaults on teachers increased last year. We need to be clear that teachers have the power they need in order to impose discipline.
My mother died of lung cancer last year. I felt helpless. As an economist, I thought, ‘What can I do?’
The senior officer who met with reporters in Baghdad said there had been 21 car bombings in the capital in May, and 126 in the past 80 days. All last year, he said, there were only about 25 car bombings in Baghdad.
I can’t tell you how hard I worked the last year. In fact, I worked so hard that I know I can’t maintain that same work level in 2001, so I’ve got to quit something.
Once I was in my last year of law school, I started doing plays, as I said, without taking the bar. And I got hooked. I did a play called ‘Marat/Sade’, and I never had so much fun in my life.
I was afraid of being a failure, of not having the best time or of being chicken. But every year I get older I think, What was I fearing last year?’ You forget. And then you move on.
It’s not easy when you lose Flamini, Hleb, Senderos, Gilberto, and Lehmann. When you lose all these players – and Flamini, for me, was the best player last year – it’s really difficult to compete against Chelsea, Man United, or Liverpool.
There have been many moments over the last year when I thought it was all over.
I know who I am as an artist and I know what my sound is, but I wanted to know what I could do in order to take it to that next level. So the experiences I had last year of moving to California and traveling to places like Rome and Nicaragua where I met a lot of people just had a really big impact in my life.
I call it fan fatigue. I went to see Bob Dylan last year, who I think is absolutely incredible, but he suffers from his audience.
When you talk about goals, you look at your team last year and you want to move the meter a little bit. You don’t want to go back and be the same team that you were last year, so we have tried to get better in some ways.
It started last year, during the summer. I went to the doctor and they found out it was kidney stones, so they had surgery done to help get those out and to pass them… More just kept coming in. So I had all together before the last show… I had like five surgeries.
The drink? Yes, I’ve had tough times in my life, especially the last year, regarding my ex-wife, my kids, I nearly broke my neck, I was on death row with pneumonia.
For the second album I look forward to doing a lot of serious collaboration and taking the experiences I’ve had over this last year, good and bad, and working it into the album.
I was the worst hitter ever. I never even broke a bat until last year when I was backing out of the garage.
In the last year my wife has noticed me struggling to get downstairs on a Sunday morning. I’ve two young children and football has been so good to me over the years I don’t want to spoil it.
Just give me 25 guys on the last year of their contracts; I’ll win a pennant every year.
When you’re competing, you don’t have the choice of what the weather will be like. It really doesn’t affect me. I ran one of my fastest times in the New York Diamond League meeting last year. It was raining pretty hard then.
My daughters won’t let me retire. Many times I joke at home that this will be my last year, and they tell me that I won’t be able to live without it. I need to play it, watch it on TV or know what’s going on.
I met a producer at a festival last year, and she said: you will find as you get older that there might not be parts; there aren’t always roles for women out there that are any good. I don’t think I will ever stop feeling that way: we’ve all grown up in the culture, it infiltrates your subconscious.
I always thought you went out and entertained people and got nothing back in return. But in the last year, I’ve realised that what the crowd gives you is so amazing, that sometimes I just stand onstage and cry.
I don’t look at my old work. I mean, they made nice books; the books were made without me, the one from last year and the one from this year. I – personally, I’m not interested in my own past. I’m only interested in today – perhaps tomorrow.
I cooked at the White House for Easter, last year, with Michelle Obama. But it more had to do with cooking from the organic garden, and her message. I took my daughter and granddaughter there, and they were really charming, it was great.
You know, it’s amazing. I don’t even have a car, would you believe it? I had a motorbike and it got stolen last year. So I’ve got to buy another one of those, I suppose. I can treat myself to that.
During my last year of college, I maxed out what small available credit I had after declaring bankruptcy in my mid-20s to pay medical bills.
Last year I was 16, it was my first round of releasing music. Since then I’ve been working more on having an identity as an artist and really figuring out what it is that I want to talk about and how I want to sound.
I decided to study music my last year in high school.
It is exciting to see the different genres that audiences want to watch. The response to a show like ‘Mirzapur’ last year and to Delhi Crime earlier this year was so encouraging and a proof that good content is the new formula.
Last year we had so many people coming in and out they didn’t bother to sew their names on the backs of the uniforms. They just put them there with Velcro.
However, while the Nazi barbarians and their collaborators threatened the entire world, I could not accept his philosophy and, after several earlier attempts, was finally accepted into the Canadian Infantry Corps during the last year of World War II.
Certainly, last year we did an episode about the census and sampling versus a direct statistic. You just said the word ‘census,’ and people fall asleep.
You don’t have to worry about what happened last year; you can start fresh.
I loved it, it’s such fun. I like that people are seeing it and then talking about it. Like when I took my son and his friends to see Napoleon Dynamite last year, we spent the next six weeks trying to explain it.
The next MVP of the Super Bowl is just as likely to have been a full-time grocery store bagger last year as a Heisman Trophy winner.
Your success has to be measured against yourself – a decade ago, last year, or yesterday.
Very similar experience happened last year when we released this album, North. It was on Deutsche Grammophon, it was very, very honest. It was the most honest record I’ve ever written.
I started to learn Greek when I was in high school, the last year of high school, by accident, because my teacher knew Greek and she offered to teach me on the lunch hour, so we did it in an informal way, and then I did it at university, and that was the main thing of my life.
I think people are going to like my new shoes. I like them. I had a lot of success with the one last year, but this year’s shoe is going to be a little different, but at the same time it’s going to be a little spin-off on last year’s shoe.
My first was in 1994 and it’s ten years ago already. It’s been ten years and I’m still around. I won a stage again, like I did last year and the year before.
You know, I thought seeing Aretha Franklin last year was amazing, and I didn’t think anyone can top that. But if someone can, John Legend would be the man. In my mind, he’s a legend, no pun intended.
It wasn’t until last year that I figured out the problem: I just don’t love competitive golf. What I love is the game itself. I love being outdoors, practicing, and smelling the freshly cut grass at 6:00 a.m. as the sun rises. But I didn’t love travel, or pressure, or the mean-spiritedness of my competitors.
It’s totally different from last year because I came in with good shape with no health worries so it was about going out there and running well and enjoying it.
God, he deals you blows that at sometimes you think you can’t handle and in the last year there have been things that we thought we couldn’t handle but we’ve dealt with it up until this point.
You have to transmit to them what it’s like being in the theater. And it has to come from somewhere inside you and not by being like what somebody did last year.
The hardest part of it was really being away from my family – I have two small children. Last year I took over 20 business trips, so being away from them was hard.
I’m sure that you could go back and make a graph showing that all the killings of black males increased in times of economic difficulty. As a matter of fact, a black man was lynched last year.
It’s funny, I had dinner with my dear friend John Spencer last night and I’m not in the first episode, but he’s at the beginning of it and he was telling me about it and I thought this sounds very hot because I think this is definitely the last year of West Wing.
When I started on the London circuit in 1989, nationwide there were about 150 to 200 people that were what you could call alternative comedians – that weren’t club comics. Now, last year when the Laughing Horse chain of clubs held a new acts competition, a thousand people entered. So, there are 800 people more.
Percussion is physical, as most instruments are. The body must function well in order to play the instruments well. Last year I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.
Last year, the surgery was a tough decision, but I had to make a decision based on my career. It was a decision to get healthy, and start over with a new team at 100 percent.
I’ve spent the last year and a half going through a very public separation, hiding in hotel lobbies.
I’ve been very lucky in the characters I’ve chosen. Up until last year I was a nobody. I did jobs I booked because I needed to put food in my mouth.
When I went back to Shea last year it really hit me how much the fans care for me, it still gives me goose bumps. I want to do the right thing for them and my family.
Last year in Germany at a town hall in Leipzig there was a game music concert played by the orchestra and some of the Final Fantasy scores were played. This year there is another concert scheduled in the same location, for game music.
The struggle we went through in the last year of ‘Journey’ was pretty insane, and I think that is also why, when I was working on the struggle level, I was able to channel my own struggle into the game.
I come from playing sports. I compete, so I gotta be better than I was last year. I gotta get better, and that better gotta come from just growing. From learning new stuff to working on it, experience it in life, and failing.
This is my last year at Oregon, and it means a lot to me. The people have been great to me up there, so if I have to run three races to win the Pac-8 title, I’ll do it. Oh, sure, I’ll probably be tired, but the people shouting will carry me across the finish line.
I think that one of my favorite movie roles has been a film that I did with Jason Statham that was out last year called ‘Safe.’ I played the main bad guy in that.
My feeling is that no series should run over five years, but I’m glad that ‘Bonanza’ went as long as it did. I do resent the fact that in the last year, the network switched us from our old slot on Sunday nights to Tuesdays without much of a promotional campaign.
I’ve just built a studio in my mama’s old bedroom, which I thought was fitting; she died last year. We’ve recorded nine songs recorded in there already; we’re sort of just chipping away.
I put a list together. It was like: Get health insurance, get a car, get a bigger apartment, travel more, get a record deal, get a publishing deal, sell 10,000 units, be a part of a No. 1 album, make a million dollars. I got to check off 90 percent of the stuff last year. I hit some serious landmarks in 2015.
One cannot escape the harsh fact that as a ministerial profession, the priesthood has very serious problems. They are not new. They did not develop yesterday or last year.
It would seem, therefore, that this constitutional safeguard may no longer serve its original purpose, especially when, as we learned last year, some acts of perjury may now be acceptable – in this world, at least, if not the next.
Francisco Garcia could have been a high draft choice last year, probably in the 20s. He’s the best wing player I’ve ever coached. But he’s done it the right way. He knew he had to work on his body to become a good pro. When he goes into the pros, he’ll be physically ready.
In my last year of drama school, I was Abigail in ‘The Crucible’ and Nina in ‘The Seagull,’ and I did some Shakespeare with the RSC. That’s what casting directors saw me in, and I got put up for a lot of period drama auditions. I always get told I suit the costumes. I don’t think I have a very modern-looking face.
Last year was a lifetime, a whole career in one season. We went from being the dregs to winners.
I’m not one of those people who say last year I caught a fish this big or I surfed a wave 20 feet or something. It’s a matter of what I do today. Everything else is a pleasurable memory.
I think my recognizability ebbs and flows. I don’t lead a particularly celebrity lifestyle or anything like that. I don’t go to showbiz parties or red-carpet events, so it all depends on whether I’ve got a film out. I’ve not been very visible in the last year or so and as a result hardly anyone stops me in the street.
Another dynamic of this last year was our increased penetration into the Japanese market.
I had the experience last year of directing my first feature while I had a 1-year-old son and while I was also pregnant, so I am now well aware of the difficulties women who are rearing children face when they’re also trying to make headway in mainstream of film.
It is being alleged that the Federal Government is ‘cutting’ spending. In fact, we are not ‘cutting’ anything. Defense spending under this budget would rise by 4.3 percent over last year. Other discretionary spending would also rise.
I did find a wonderful girl last year, but the photographs that we did were more about motorcars.
Last year when I was playing for Hamphsire, Delhi Capitals asked me if I was interested in playing for them. I took my time and I thought it’s an opportunity for me to learn something new. To take my game forward, to take my T20 game forward.
In those days, reserve duty lasted for six years, which, I might add, was three times as long as service in the regular army, although to be perfectly honest, I was unable to fulfill my entire obligation because I was taking acting classes and they said I could skip my last year.
You know, we opened a record number of stores last year.
I think that one of the motivating factors was in my last year of law school: we had a competition, and I won the competition; it was judged by several of the federal judges at the time. I got a tremendous amount of encouragement to pursue litigation from them at the time.
Something I worked very hard on, especially last year, was being more outgoing on the court: recognising good points I’d played and trusting myself and my skills on the court. The fist pumps weren’t necessarily to let my opponent know I was here, more to let myself know that I’m here.
In Sierra Leone last year there was just the two of us hanging out of a helicopter and, when we were in Bosnia, I drove an armoured vehicle, thousands of miles.
I visited the Chinese side last year. The Chinese are in a constant state of military readiness. They have all their nuclear weapons in the area, presumably trained on targets across the border.
Every year is a new year, and when you look at the turnover year to year, teams that made the playoffs last year aren’t a guarantee to make the playoffs this year.
Georgia Tech beat us and Mississippi Southern tied us last year, and Texas beat us after we had the game won. We only played about five games the way we were capable of playing and lost one of those.
Youth is seen as everything. You don’t know anything when you’re young. It’s great being older, just having a more balanced perspective. I wake up and realise that what seemed to be important last year no longer is. I’m increasingly grateful for every day.
Before I left the ‘Star’ last year to write books full-time, I welcomed catastrophe. It was material. Missed planes, broken pipes, dead lawns, digestive disorders, you name it, if it was something that had gone horribly wrong, it was worth banging out 600 words about.
In 1965, I was 11 and in my last year at Junior school. I was living with my mum and older sister in a rented flat in south London – my parents had separated when I was five and got divorced a couple of years later, which was unusual at the time. My dad was working abroad, and I hadn’t seen him for several years.
Last year, Congress passed a law that directs the Federal Reserve to set limits on debit card swipe fees that are reasonable and proportional to the cost of processing those transactions. Like most Americans, I had no idea that swipe fees charged to American businesses are the highest in the world.
Well, my last year was 04-05 with the Heat, and I relaxed for a few years, and I said, ‘Well, what am I going to do?’ I’ve got to do my passion, and my passion is basketball.
Everything that happened last year stays in the past.
With the absence of a flu vaccination last year, I did not take a flu shot; but there is still some immunity that carries over from year to year; but about every 30 years, there is a major change in the genetics of the flu virus.
I’ve had so much stress in the last year so it’s really a struggle. I never hide, when I walk down the street, someone’s going to take my picture, that’s what I look like.
According to the study, approximately 16.7 million U.S. workers born in Latin America had a combined gross income of $450 billion last year, of which 93 percent was spent locally.
We felt like when we went into last year we had a pretty good chance to win the championship from the previous year with the fall we put together. We’ve got the same everything now, so I think we can come back and be as strong this year.
I am stronger than I was last year. I am throwing the ball better now in May of 2013 than I did in May of 2012 – significantly better. I got better throughout the season.
Well, the crazy thing for me is I think out of anything that’s happened in the last year, all the success, people always ask what do you guys do with the money? I don’t think they realize we’re not really making any money.
The biggest thing for me coming into the league was my last year in college I didn’t think about the NFL one time. I just played ball and went out there and did what I did and let everything take care of itself. It worked out great for me.
It meant a lot because it was my first time to compete as a senior at that meet, which was kind of weird because I’ve done senior all year, but I didn’t get to compete last year because of my elbow.
I’ve slowly gone back, later on in life, to fish and then chicken and then, last year, red meat.
Last year, I finally got my own grand piano, and that was a big thing for me because it’s always been and always will be a very important part of my life.
There are some parents who always have their daughter’s hair whipped. Mine wasn’t always like that, but I appreciate that both my parents were into me having natural hair, so they did find Anota Scott, who I was going to for my cornrows and wrapping last year and a couple years before that.
There’s Kenyan guys who last year or two years ago were running for Kenya, and then they switched to Qatar and Bahrain and other countries. Yes, I do have a problem with that.
Last year, at the beginning of the year, we couldn’t get arrested, so I’ll take this. Feast versus famine.
Last year my wife got a Rolls-Royce.
I love playing team ball, but that doesn’t happen when most players are in the last year of their deals.
I was so excited when ‘Parasite’ won the Oscar last year, and part of that was the shared Korean heritage and also it was just knowing that Bong Joon Ho made an incredible film and it didn’t matter what language they were speaking, what country it was from, audiences all around the world responded to it.
Originally, AXS TV came to me last year and asked me if I’d be interested in doing an acoustic ‘Live from the Grammy Museum’ performance. But I was bound and determined to do an electric show with this great band to dispel any notion that I wasn’t a ‘rock guy’ in Styx.
I left school early in my last year before I took my A-levels. I wasn’t expelled. It was just a mutual understanding. I wasn’t interested in going to school and they said, ‘You’re not turning up,’ so we severed ties. Both sides appreciated it.
‘Anthems’ was a harsh indictment of American foreign policy; the video for the first single featured an American flag engulfed in a pool of oil, imagery which might have been risque in 2002, but seemed unimaginably passe in the last year of Bush’s presidency.
In 2005, before I was president, the state of Bolivia had only $300 million from hydrocarbons. Last year, 2007, the Bolivian state – after the nationalization, after changing the law – Bolivia received $1,930 million. For a small country with nearly 10 million inhabitants, this allows us to increase the national economy.
I think it was in Moscow last year and I got changed for training the day before we played Moscow, but the fact is they actually wanted to do John’s, me and John were next to each other and they did mine by mistake. John had done them I think. So yeah it is true.
Whenever an earthquake or tsunami takes thousands of innocent lives, a shocked world talks of little else. I’ll never forget the wrenching days I spent in Haiti last year for Save the Children just weeks after the earthquake.
We ought to recognize that we have an offensive responsibility to take the war to the terrorists where they are. That responsibility has waned in the last year as military and intelligence resources were withdrawn from Afghanistan and Pakistan to be used in Iraq.
I can say that hands down from being in this business 32 years; we’re going to be much better than we were last year just because there’s eight new players that now have experience and Palacios will be healthy.
A housing renaissance has begun. This may be hard to believe after the dizzying, six-year-long crash in home sales, construction and house prices. But housing turned the corner last year, and it will take off in 2013.
I turned 65 last year, and each year I get more and more interested in human health. For most people it happens around age 50, but I’ve always been a slow learner. It’s critical in terms of the cost of health care.
Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line. He caught every other fish.
Last year I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I was over 50, Caucasian, thin, small-framed, and I have it in my genetic history. It was almost a slam-dunk.
My goals were last year to win the world champs and this year to win the Olympic Games and I’ve done that and I couldn’t be happier.
As Obama prepares to begin the last year of his presidency, he stands in an unusual position on the national stage: He is the rationalist, a creature of intellect rather than emotion.
That’s the NFL: Not For Long. First year’s a welcome year. Second it’s, What are you going to do? Third year’s like, Well, you didn’t do much last year; give us something or you’re going. That’s the way it is. They’ll trade you or they’ll cut you.
Because of the changes in the Padres team I played with last year, I felt like a veteran recently when I worked out with Jason Kendall and he told me he’s liked listening to my records since he was a kid!
By the end of last year we solved a lot of threads, and it’s really good for this new way we’re taking the show to really have these new people and these new energies, frankly.
We ran three cars last year. Unfortunately, as time went on, we did have to let a few people go, which we regretted, but just because of the situation.
Last year, the Assembly of the League, as a result of the initiative taken by the Scandinavian nations, further limited and clarified all the provisions of the clause prescribing the duty of states to participate in sanctions.
There’s nothing in the Constitution that says the President stops being President in his last year.
I am a fighter. I learned it at Genk in my first year when we were fighting against going down. Also, at Bremen last year, it was very difficult. We had to fight more often than not. I will fight again to earn my place.
In the last year of my presidency, I travelled 200 days out of 365. You have to lead a very disciplined life. To be able to do that, I need a lot of sleep. But I have no problems sleeping. On long days, I can easily take a nap for 20 minutes in the afternoon.
We have to get government out of the job of picking winners and losers. That’s what they’ve been doing the last year and a half, getting in the way of businesses that are trying to reinvest to get our economy back on its feet.
Moreover, as the leadership of the House confirmed last year, the Administration remains opposed to a congressional resolution on the Armenian Genocide due to Turkish objections. This approach sends absolutely the wrong signal to Turkey and to the rest of the world.
A study of economics usually reveals that the best time to buy anything is last year.
What happened is, when I was doing ‘Taxi,’ the last year, we did this thing where we had on top hats and tails, and we pretended to tap-dance. And I said to myself, ‘You know, I always wanted to know how to do this.’ So I got myself a teacher, and I started studying, and I got hooked.
Last year, I was on Threat Matrix. We were on Thursday against Friends and Survivor; so this year it’s fun to know people are watching, and to know that all of your hard work is not sort of wasted.
I think the end of last year when we were aware of that transition was for everyone in their own way kind of bittersweet, but it’s also what the show’s about, one administration ends and another begins.
I ask people what they do in sales, how much money they made last year, what their cost of sales is, and they don’t even know. If you don’t know your numbers, you’re going out of business. I don’t care how good your product is.
I don’t feel the need for religion. But I went on a yoga retreat last year and I do believe slightly in the karma thing and just being good and true unto yourself. And I slightly believe that you can attract good and bad to you.
The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year.
Last year, when ‘Black Swan,’ ‘True Grit’ and ‘King’s Speech’ all grossed over $100 million, it gave studios and independent financiers the confidence to make daring movies and not do the same old you-know-what.
In my last year at Hallmark, we finally began putting verses on computer. It had been all in filing cabinets on index cards. They had to assign a 4 digit serial number to each sentiment, for each area of feeling.
Now I literally roll out of bed and put on whatever is there. I have really enjoyed being a boy this last year.
Once the race starts, it doesn’t matter what you did yesterday let alone last year.
I’m noticing a new approach to art making in recent museum and gallery shows. It flickered into focus at the New Museum’s ‘Younger Than Jesus’ last year and ran through the Whitney Biennial, and I’m seeing it blossom and bear fruit at ‘Greater New York,’ MoMA P.S. 1’s twice-a-decade extravaganza of emerging local talent.
To get your own chatshow, with your name in the title, my arena tour last year – that was another goal for me – I got my own radio show, again with my name in the title… Apart from rehab, there isn’t really much on my to-do list!
I quit flying myself last year and that was difficult for me because I enjoy it as much as playing golf. It was an adjustment sitting in the back of the plane, rather than at the controls, but I’ve grown accustomed to it and enjoy reading a book, doing some work or challenging my wife to a game of dominos.
Last year, I was proud to be an original co-sponsor of legislation that would increase federal judges’ salaries by more than 40 percent. It also built in a cost of living adjustment, so the Judicial Branch would not be dependent on the Legislative Branch for increases each year.
I didn’t get the degree because in my last year, for my thesis film I made a feature called Permanent Vacation and they’d given me a scholarship, the Louis B Mayer fellowship and they made a mistake.
I was privileged to be able to study a year with Martha Graham, the last year she was teaching.
I would audition for all the school plays, and finally, my last year, I got the role as Pinocchio – finally.
I usually do one con a year as a GoH and try to make the World Fantasy Convention for business purposes. Last year I went to a worldcon for the first time in two decades. I may go again this year.
Last year, I twice voted against the Labor, HHS, and Education Appropriations bill because it did not adequately fund education in general, and Native American programs specifically.
Don’t get to the point where you think, ‘I learned everything last week,’ or, ‘I learned everything last year.’ You’ll never learn everything. Wake up every day and try to learn something new. And if you do learn something, pass it on to people you think deserve the game.
From 1836, down to last year, there is no proof of the Government having any confidence in the duration of peace, or possessing increased security against war.
I was watching the show last year and it didn’t even cross my mind that this could even happen.
It’s a little crazy. Last year, I was in seventh grade, and we were the babies at the school – ’cause my middle school’s eighth grade and seventh grade – and now I’m eighth grade, and all these new students have come in, and they’re all like, ‘Oh my gosh! Darci Lynne!’
I’ve seen a study in the last year that digital sound actually induces stress in the listener.
People are looking a lot at statistics and all these things, but in the end, I don’t really care. If we can win more games than last year where I score less, I will be really happy. And maybe if we can win a few titles, that’s the bonus.
The Lego children and fans are highly engaged people, so they expect a high degree of interaction with us. If you go to YouTube… we were told by Google last year that we are the second most-watched brand of all brands.
So much of what happened to India late last year and early into 2011 is the same story we’ve seen with other big emerging markets, and that is that investors started to realize that the growth trajectory in India would have to get moderated by tightening policy.
Last year in a historic move, the state of New York passed the very first cigarette fire safety standard.
Last year my boyfriend gave me a painting – a very personal one. I really prefer personal gifts or ones made by someone for me. Except diamonds. That’s the exception to the rule.
I sure love Ireland. The first trip I ever made was last year when I did this record in Dublin.
I have had lots of friends who’ve been affected by Aids and a very good friend of mine, Oscar Moore, died of Aids and I was with him in his last year quite a bit. And of course he was a man living in a very rich culture with a wealthy family who was able to afford health care.
You look at 2001, we were third in points and no one gave us much of a chance when the season started. We came back last year and had the same team, the same everybody and led points.
I learned a lot in my last year at Livingston and even more since coming to Leeds, as a player and on the sports science side.
It is absolutely unacceptable to think that in the last year of the president’s term, that he should stop doing his job, and he won’t.
