We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Occasionally Quotes from Ruskin Bond, John Stossel, Brad Henry, Rana el Kaliouby, Janet Yellen. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
Occasionally, I have written about stories related to crime, but I have never attempted a traditional detective story. So I want to write a true detective story.
I saw how the regulation I called for made things worse, didn’t help consumers and simple competition was better. And I started praising business and occasionally criticizing regulation.
Families are the compass that guide us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.
I will occasionally take power naps on weekends and agree that they can be re-energizing.
To me, a wise and humane policy is occasionally to let inflation rise even when inflation is running above target.
I’d been in Sacramento a day and already noticed the pervasiveness of its homeless problem. The city seemed like California without the masks or pretense: a place where dreams were occasionally made but mostly torn apart.
When I’m with the wife, and we’re having a romantic night, I occasionally think about a glass of red wine, but I’ll order a sparkling water. I’d like the wine, but it wouldn’t end with one glass, so I don’t even go there.
Some actors occasionally waive their outlandish salaries and take a cut of the gross instead.
I occasionally go to the gym and I lift free weights, I don’t use machines.
Believe me, I love a good chocolate chip ice cream. I’m not going to go for some lousy version of it. If I’m going to have it, I’m going to have a really good one. I believe in treating yourself occasionally to something.
I’m privileged to occasionally stand on a table, and people listen to what I say, and in those moments, it’s important to me that I have something to say and that I honor it.
A sibling is a friend for life, but they are a friend for life that you are forced to have. And like anything that you are forced to do, occasionally people will drive you crazy.
Filter from your tap, and if you do occasionally buy the bottles, please recycle.
In your teens and twenties, death doesn’t exist. In your thirties, you glance down the road occasionally. But then in your forties, it becomes a full-time job looking the other way.
Occasionally it’s been a long and bumpy road – one I’m still travelling – but I’ve always felt like my home town has been solidly behind me and I’m both grateful and proud.
Circumstantial evidence is occasionally very convincing, as when you find a trout in the milk, to quote Thoreau’s example.
I regard myself as someone who is retired but who occasionally goes out to work.
Occasionally, I share advice, but most of my advice is based on my personal experience.
I do not, in fact, use many puns. Certainly there are far fewer than people believe. But I suspect the ones I do occasionally use tend to hang around in people’s memories for a while.
I take guidance regularly from NCP chief Sharad Pawar Saheb and occasionally speak Soniaji Gandhi.
I think it’s very important to send the message that, while parents are needed to remind you to practice and occasionally force you to finish things… they also need to learn to respect you. You as an individual, ultimately, are the captain of where you’re going.
In 1981, I was a futurist – or at least I was a guy who put on a futurist hat occasionally – and I wrote about the 21st century.
My scripts are possibly too talkative. Sometimes I watch a scene I’ve written, and occasionally I think, ‘Oh, for God’s sake, shut up.’
You take an educated gamble. If you don’t occasionally make a mistake, you’re not doing your job.
Planning bores me. I like to go with the flow. Being whimsical is nice, occasionally. It keeps things fresh; there’s no expectation.
Occasionally I’ll watch Fox News for as long as I can tolerate it, or CNN. I’ll watch until I get infuriated, but you got to know what they’re talking about and what they’re not talking about.
The fact that my mother was on television every week while I was young was occasionally awkward, and often frustrating.
In the process of looking for comedy, you have to be deeply honest. And in doing that, you’ll find out here’s the other side. You’ll be looking under the rock occasionally for the laughter.
Most people are not shocked that I am occasionally rude to journalists. They are probably amazed I don’t punch one in the face.
The truth is, none of us is OK, not really. The best, most dear, most thoughtful and engaged and open and feminist men in my life have occasionally come out with some statement that’s made me gasp. Then again, so have almost all the women.
Bengaluru’s traffic does not allow scope for cycling regularly, but I brave the roads occasionally and take the cycle out to work.
Occasionally, if I’m in doubt over specific Indian classical or raga-related questions, I’ll find myself going back to my lesson tapes or my father’s recordings.
By the very nature of his art, which depends on invention and innovation, a story teller must depart from the beaten track and, having done so, occasionally startle and disagree with some of his associates. Healthy disagreement we must have.
A diplomat these days is nothing, but a head waiter who is allowed to sit down occasionally.
I think sometimes we forget what we have, and occasionally it’s important to remind ourselves.
I use a toothbrush on my lips as a lip scrub; occasionally, I use a toothbrush with some dark eye shadow on my eye brows if I want to fill them in. And if I want a really thick, textured look with mascara, I put one on my lashes, as well.
People love the electric rake. You just hit it or whatever you want to do. You can’t play ‘Swanee River’ on it. You have to just make terrible noise. Occasionally, it will make a sound like a note.
Occasionally I do things against my inner voice, but you really should go for the thing that touches you most-even if you don’t quite know why it does.
When I listen to my favorite songwriters, they have such simple melodies and chords. I occasionally manage to stop at the right time, but all too often I keep on going until I have way too many notes and words. But that’s just what I do.
My books are shelved in different places, depending on the bookstore. Sometimes they can be found in the Mystery section, sometimes in the Humor department, and occasionally even in the Literature aisle, which is somewhat astounding.
Mum’s serial misbehavior over the years had driven me, despairing, to write her scolding – occasionally scalding letters.
Good candidates can arrive at the binary search tree as the right path in a few minutes, and then take 10-15 minutes working through the rest of the problem and the other roadblocks I toss out. But occasionally I get a candidate who ‘intuitively understands’ trees and can visualize the problem I’m presenting.
I prefer to imagine that my wife, a few friends, and occasionally my mom are the only ones who read what I do, though I realize that this is somewhat unrealistic.
Romney Marsh remains one of the last great wildernesses of south-east England. Flat as a desert, and at times just as daunting, it is an odd, occasionally eerie wetland straddling the coastal borders of Kent and Sussex, rich in birds, local folklore and solitary medieval churches.
I’m aware of my old plays and occasionally think about them, but I’m much more anxious about finding the next play.
When I am writing, and occasionally achieve single focus and presence, I finally feel that is where I’m supposed to be. Everything else is kind of anxiety.
I don’t deny my life-style is occasionally pretty wild.
I do public appearances. I’m bluff, hearty, goofy. I wear loud clothes, and I read the funny bits. I occasionally get taken to task for one thing or another, and I acknowledge my fault, my flaw, my failure, and I move on.
I can do a really good animal impression! I’m great at ducks, cats, dogs, and occasionally dolphins.
You don’t keep in contact with many of the people you work with because there are so many. Acting’s just a transient job, very occasionally you’ll meet people and really hit it off but generally you just know people to say hello to.
Occasionally if I look back at something I’ve written I’ll find one of those that I don’t understand, but that’s a bad thing – the unconscious has dealt me a bad hand.
Occasionally I write a small piece or the odd lecture in English, and I teach in English, but my fiction is always written in German.
I was a smoker for years. Occasionally I slip and have a cigarette. Remarkably, my voice has held up. I’m grateful, obviously. But I don’t gargle with honey and ground-up bird eggs. I have no secrets.
We occasionally stumble over the truth but most of us pick ourselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
I know I have sex appeal, but I’ve never felt like an actual sex symbol. Fans sometimes think I am. The majority of them are sweet about it, but occasionally somebody weird becomes totally fixated upon me.
I don’t spend too much time on my phone, laptop or television. However, I do occasionally watch documentaries and shows on streaming platforms.
The ICRC did not see Nazi Germany for what it was. Instead, the organization maintained the illusion that the Third Reich was a ‘regular partner,’ a state that occasionally violates laws, not unlike any army during World War II, occasionally using illegal means and methods of warfare.
Occasionally, I’ll wear glitter or blue eye shadow.
I occasionally wear Miss Dior perfume. It’s quite elegant and feminine. It reminds me of a romantic evening out.
You get a lot of apps and companies that are trying to sell you on something that’s totally useless or potentially unhealthy. Only occasionally does something really worthwhile really come out.
We learn much during our sleep, and the knowledge thus gained slowly filters into the physical brain, and is occasionally impressed upon it as a vivid and illuminative dream.
Occasionally projects just take off unexpectedly, sometimes you can work away at sketches and ideas for years before they are published. There are a number of authors I would be eager to illustrate.
A lot of sites offer free postage over a certain amount and are pretty cool with you sending stuff back, if you do it within a particular time frame. However, occasionally some sites don’t accept returns on vintage items, so make sure you know that before you spend your cash.
The reality is that financial markets are self-destabilizing; occasionally they tend toward disequilibrium, not equilibrium.
I am occasionally enraptured by Western landscape. But I don’t identify that state of mind as having to do with my own origins, having grown up in the West, although I certainly crisscrossed Nevada countless times growing up, and then as a young adult, in cars and on motorcycles.
Some days, just occasionally, when I’ve had just one too many chickpeas, drizzles of olive oil or chunks of feta, I crave a return to the sushi-filled joints of Tokyo.
It got to the point where most of my time went toward writing novels. I would still occasionally write short stories, but only when I was commissioned by an editor to write for a themed anthology or special issue.
I try to keep in touch with the details… I also look at the product daily. That doesn’t mean you interfere, but it’s important occasionally to show the ability to be involved. It shows you understand what’s happening.
I like being called ‘Mr. Freeman’ occasionally.
I have an agent and everything. I audition occasionally.
I’ve never really suffered complete and utter writer’s block, really. I equate it with sex: in the beginning of my career, I was writing five songs a week; now, I occasionally write a song. But it’s an exciting moment when it happens!
Occasionally, I have time to go to the theater, and I think for a minute, ‘Man, I’d really love to be doing a play right now.’ Because I loved doing plays when I was doing them. Then I think, ‘I want to do it right now, but will I want to do that Sunday matinee in six weeks?’
I love the Pembroke coastal path. Whenever I’ve been there, it’s been sunny, but slightly bracing. So you’re happy to keep walking, but you’ll get a bit of a tan. The wildflowers and the insects are great and you’ll occasionally see a small mammal.
The Kitchen was a really great concept; it just wasn’t at the price point that made it accessible to people. People could visit occasionally, and some people were coming regularly. It just wasn’t a novel concept for every customer.
Am I disappointed occasionally by the lack of irony in some movies? Yes.
I’m on Facebook and Twitter, and occasionally I will tweet something. Somehow my problem is that I don’t think I have anything interesting to tweet about.
Traffic: Sit there. Sit. Occasionally move your foot from the brake and crawl forward, then put it back. That’s all you do for hours. It’s very calming.
I go out to dinner occasionally and that’s the sum of my dating life.
I do occasionally encounter a British business that delivers what and when, and for exactly the price, they promised. But commercial paragons in the U.K. are rare.
It’s all chaos and the house is occasionally filthy but I get to stand at the school gates. Writers are so lucky to have that flexibility.
Gossip can be entertaining: occasionally, I’ve heard the most fascinating things about myself I never knew.
I’m a Christian, and those beliefs occasionally come out in the books.
I would love to occasionally do English-speaking films, but the script is as important for me as the director.
I really can’t live without my In-N-Out burgers. Honestly, I can’t. Even when I’m doing the whole no-carb thing occasionally, I make an exception for these. They’re too delicious to count.
I am aware of the words ‘national treasure’ being attached to me occasionally. It just makes me feel old.
Occasionally, I have to think like myself to remember where I put something.
‘Powers of Persuasion: The Story of British Advertising’ by Winston Fletcher – the impression you get from reading this book, which covers post-war advertising until the present, is of a chaotic, self-serving, occasionally brilliant but ultimately shallow business.
I do think about and do occasionally take my wife and son out with me on tour. It’s difficult.
Running had always been my main source of exercise, but I would go to classes at different gyms occasionally, but when those gyms closed, running became my one and only source of exercise.
I met Angela Bassett during the awards circuit. I was actually surprised at how moved I was to meet her in person. I was moved to tears. I find that feeling, it’s happened occasionally, and I never know who it’ll be with.
Sitting on public transport is an occasionally exasperating experience if you have the temerity to attempt travelling while female.
Girls like to see girls dressed up like princesses occasionally.
As long as I don’t overindulge, it’s OK for me to eat burgers and ice cream occasionally. As for alcohol? I’ve never tried it.

Occasionally, you have to make adjustments and try different things.
Better to be occasionally cheated than perpetually suspicious.
I occasionally read digital books when I’m traveling, but I do so begrudgingly.
When I do research, I cast my net very widely and then snatch what feels right out of that. Occasionally I’ll read a specific book for a specific book, but usually I’m trying to increase my general understanding.
Nature is not evil. The world occasionally shrugs its shoulders, and people get knocked off. The earth, for geological reasons that are well known, is a fairly risky place to live. To be evil, you have to have intent. Any remarkable natural happening in which no human will is employed cannot be regarded as evil.
Man will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of the time he will pick himself up and continue on.
Meeting forensic patients for the first time could occasionally be an unnerving experience. They often came across as mild and gentle people, but the details of the crimes were harrowing in the extreme.
I’d occasionally do some exercises at home, but I never cared for gyms.
My circle includes some of the most influential people in the world. They all occasionally suffer from depression. Our DNA is built to serve and interact, not be worshipped.
Occasionally, human beings are briefly de-animated, and the stories of people who are briefly de-animated that interest me the most are those having to do with the cold.
That they may have a little peace, even the best dogs are compelled to snarl occasionally.
I lead a simple life. I feed the fish. I walk the dogs. I cook dinner. Occasionally I take a meeting.
As much as early 2000s aesthetics are something I was pining for and very much love, I would occasionally struggle to find one singular image or one singular site that summed up all of my memories really well.
On the street, I’ll hear, ‘You made the Olympics for me,’ or ‘I love what you represented.’ Only occasionally is it, ‘You were a flop, an also-ran, a loser.’
I do road gigs occasionally but I don’t want to go out on the road for months at a time.
I do get approached occasionally, but not a ton. I’m unrecognizable because I’m coated in cat hair and sweat. And there’s a sort of yeti quality to my presence… so I don’t think that people can see the face.
Occasionally, I just need to escape from my work or be reminded of the comparative bliss of my own life, so I pick up a novel.
Before ‘Twilight,’ occasionally I would get the ‘Hey are you that girl from that movie?’ but no one knew my first and last name. The fans of the saga are amazing, and it’s very flattering.
Exploration is an oft-lauded human activity, and one that resonates in the same way that music and good stories do. It’s hard-wired into our species (and into many others), no doubt because it has survival value. Exploration occasionally rewards those who accept its risks, usually with new resources.
I have Twitter auto-post to my Facebook page, and I occasionally post things directly to Facebook as well. I’ve always noticed that the direct-to-Facebook approach generates far more likes, but I’ve never actually gone back and run the averages.
When it comes to the point where you occasionally look forward to being in prison on the basis that you might be able to spend a day reading a book, the realization dawns that perhaps the situation has become a little more stressful than you would like.
Human life isn’t about ideals. It’s a compromise, and occasionally it’s boring.
Occasionally, a young catcher is born with a backup’s soul. Bob Montgomery was on the Red Sox opening day roster for the entire 1970s, yet he never had more than 254 at-bats in a season.
When you’re in the position I’m in, you have two options: you can either shut yourself off from everybody, from the world, and not live a full life. Or you welcome everybody into your life and occasionally somebody will try to take advantage. And I’d much rather be that person who lets people in.
I’ve become more and more comfortable with occasionally dressing sexier, but I still hope to express a ‘cool’ type of sensuality.
Contrary to popular belief, I do occasionally get to watch TNA, mostly on fast forward, but Bobby Roode is one of the guys… solid, solid guy.
The larger-than-life thing is definitely what I’m after. I’ve always drawn dark stories. Occasionally, I’ll try a perfect hero, but it’s a real stretch for me. I like ’em warts and all, and obsessive and weird.
I had therefore, no hesitation in giving all the information I had, even though occasionally I tried to concentrate mainly on giving information about the results of my own work.
At the end of the day, I know that I would rather be alone and occasionally lonely and unhappy than in a miserable marriage and lonely and unhappy all the time. I don’t mind being single. In fact, I like it.
During two decades, on and off, reporting in Russia and the post-Soviet states – in the turbulent ’90s, the wealthy but depressing aughts and, finally, during the eruption of violence in Ukraine – I occasionally heard people talk about how ‘the Americans’ wanted this or that political outcome.
I’ve been out now for so many years that I am not surprised at what someone may occasionally say. It really doesn’t faze me.
With an independent movie, it’s like, ‘Okay I know what I want, and I got to go for it.’ I just got to get the A version of this. Occasionally we’ll try a B version, but not often. We’ll just get what’s scripted and try to do that as best we can, so you sort of edit while you shoot an independent movie.
I used to say the wealthiest among us have to pay our fair share, which I still occasionally say. That’s not dodging the word ‘millionaire.’
It is interesting that our biggest fans are the greatest names of the classical music scene, such as Julian Rachlin, Janine Jansen, Mischa Maisky and Gidon Kremer. They even make guest appearances in our concerts occasionally.
I mind my body by eating whole, healthy foods. I learned from Nutrisystem to eat consistently all day; otherwise, your body hoards fat. Of course, I also mind my body when it occasionally whispers, ‘Marie, you need some chocolate.’
The pavilion that seems to intercept divine aid does not cover God but occasionally covers us. God is never hidden, yet sometimes we are, covered by a pavilion of motivations that draw us away from God and make Him seem distant and inaccessible.
For my 100-day project, I decided to keep a journal. It could be just one sentence. Often, it was just one word, occasionally the F-word. But it gave me a sense of structure.
I don’t wear cologne. I do occasionally, but anytime I take a shower, I just put on deodorant. That’s basically what I smell like.
When I joined Small Faces, we occasionally would bump into The Who. And Keith Moon and I became firm pals.
I occasionally buy a bikini, but I’m too shy to wear it.
I have to make rock records occasionally.
We recognise that, like us, other humans have insecurities and ambitions; we fall in love and have relationships that end in heartbreak; we worry about our children’s wellbeing; we say things we regret; we’re occasionally kept awake by fears or worries; and we try to impress people we look up to.
I do all kinds of roles – nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho – and occasionally someone kind of normal. It’s weird, when I lived in Austin I was always cast as pretty normal people. But when I moved to Los Angeles I was immediately branded a psycho.
Occasionally we have to interpret an international treaty – one, perhaps, affecting airlines and liability for injury to passengers or damage to goods. Then, of course, we have to look to the precedents of other member nations in resolving issues.
I paint in acrylic and sometimes in oil. Sometimes I’ll paint my kids. And I’ll occasionally do some photography.
Occasionally, you’ll get a ‘District 9,’ a film that is politically charged, but there is nothing going on beneath the surface with a lot of horror films. They are not about anything.
Everyday life is pretty funny and pretty ridiculous and occasionally really great, though not all the time, and that’s all part of it.
Imagine if baseball were taught the way science is taught in most inner-city schools. Schoolchildren would get lectures about the history of the World Series. High school students would occasionally reproduce famous plays of the past. Nobody would get in the game themselves until graduate school.
We are so happy to advise others that occasionally we even do it in their interest.
Sight gags had to be planned; they required timing and mechanics. Occasionally, spontaneity would arise in the shooting of the scenes.
The judiciary is peopled by judges who are human, and being human, they are occasionally motivated by considerations other than an objective view of law and justice.
As interesting as that music can occasionally be, I don’t think it really replaces the other.
I’m sure that is a reason why young people occasionally bash up old people – because the ages don’t mix any more.
I don’t mind being stereotyped in some way and playing certain kinds of guys, but if I can find something to occasionally get a break from that, that would be nice. And I feel like I manage to.
I’m not joking around when I’ve said occasionally, trying to learn how to play a D chord properly has been a very big thing for me.
I am a sentimental guy, and occasionally, that lump in my throat when I speak has stopped my tongue from working.
My very first job was a cashier at Burger King in Tucson, Arizona. And I occasionally worked the drive-thru. I’d go wherever I was needed! My second job was at Dairy Queen. I stayed in the fast food royalty.
Bin Laden is living in the United States, and he has blonde hair. He’s probably got some type of eating disorder. And he drinks too much, and then occasionally writes an op-ed under the name Ann Coulter.
I’ve become very fond of the law. I’ve always been an advocate for justice, which occasionally the law brings to light.
I have been away a great deal in the daytime, occasionally at night.
A friend of mine once told me that I can’t screw up when I play my own music. I also take voice lessons, play other peoples’ songs out of music books, and occasionally figure out how to play other people’s music from records. This keeps my ears, fingers, and mind working.
The idea that maybe you don’t have to own a car if you only need one occasionally may catch on, just like time-sharing caught on in real estate.
To me, it was a sad fate to have been born into a period and a world where everything was in tip-top order, and the only real excitement was to be found in history books and occasionally also in the paper.
I make a dribble or a simple pass, knowing that if I lose the ball near the area, the opponent can score. I am aware of what I do on the pitch, but I always do it to help the team. That’s why, occasionally ,I also boot the ball into the stands.
I’ll occasionally go and do an honor like the Mexican-American Legal Defense Fund because it raises money for a very worthy organization.
Sure, food stamps are occasionally misused, but anyone familiar with business knows that the abuse of food subsidies is far greater in the corporate suite. Every time an executive wines and dines a hot date on the corporate dime, the average taxpayer helps foot the bill.
When you’re in the position I’m in, you have two options: you can either shut yourself off from everybody, from the world, and not live a full life. Or you welcome everybody into your life and occasionally somebody will try to take advantage.
As Indiana’s governor, I balanced eight budgets, never raised taxes, and left the largest surplus in state history. It wasn’t always easy. Cuts had to be made and some initiatives deferred. Occasionally I had to say ‘no.’
Occasionally the conflict between ‘what we stand for’ and ‘what we do’ has been forthrightly addressed.
We were working class, but my mother stopped working at the mill when she married my father and he went on to become an electrical engineer and later a draughtsman. So although we were never rich he was bringing in enough money to be able to splash out occasionally.
Occasionally I’ve seen children become heavy-handed and insensitive when dealing with their aging parents, and it only caused resentment and hard feelings.
I’ve been thinking about ‘The Jetsons’ since I was a kid. But occasionally, you want ‘The Jetsons’ to come to reality. That’s what Apple is so great at: Productizing things and bringing them to you so you can be a part of it.
In an ideal world, as a director, you usually wish you could do your own thing and not have to take anyone else’s point of view into account, but occasionally you work with someone like Robyn, who brings a new set of ideas to the table, and the whole ends up much greater than the sum of the parts.
Human beings are social creatures – not occasionally or by accident but always. Sociability is one of our lives as both cause and effect.
I was a vegetarian through many of my teen years and easily revert back to that occasionally, but my immune system is usually happier with a bit of real meat.
As a writer and sometime activist who needs to promote my books and articles and occasionally rally people to one cause or another, I found Facebook fast and convenient. Though I never really used it to socialize, I figured it was OK to let other people do that, and I benefited from their behavior.
I think you go into a debate trying to be fair minded and trying to be balanced but occasionally there will be a sense where it feels like the moral imperative is pulling you one direction or another.
If the cosmos isn’t finite, then far, far away, floating duplicates of your brain – with all its experiences, thoughts, and emotions – are occasionally (and temporarily) thrown together by the random combining of atoms. Such ‘Boltzmann brains,’ as they’re called, are a disturbing consequence of an unlimited universe.
My process is kind of intuitive – I think about how a character will speak according to their station and personality, occasionally making notes with guidelines for their mannerisms, and then I just sort of crack on and write it.
I am an on-and-off vegetarian. Sometimes on, mostly off. I think it is better to be a vegetarian but occasionally, the call of the hot dog overpowers my ethics.
I’d love to spend more time on the Isle of Man. I love the anonymity of putting on a boiler suit and going down to buy parts for the compressor. And Norman Wisdom’s a neighbour; I salute him occasionally.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Although I’m largely doing other things in life, it’s very nice occasionally to put my toe back in the waters of show business.
When I was a kid in the U.S., ‘Doctor Who’ wasn’t really on, but you would occasionally catch an episode. Different stations did marathons.
During the couple of years it took to write ‘At The Bottom of Everything’, I decided, on the sort of hopeful whim that occasionally overtakes me, to sign up for piano lessons.
Somebody will occasionally give me a line or a tag or something like that. It’s rare that someone will give me a whole joke that I can use.
That’s been the case for decades. ‘The Simpsons,’ ‘King of the Hill’ – they do the preproduction in America, and the production is in Korea or in some cases China, or occasionally Japan or India.
I’m not one of your knockabout, knuckle-scarred, Internet-controversy-courting book critics. Occasionally I stumble into controversy accidentally, but not because I enjoy it. It’s probably just because I’m a weird person.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
The only thing that really annoys me is when all of a sudden you hear yourself on the radio advertising Smith’s tyre shop or Blenkinsop’s jam. They simply can’t do that. And in Australia, occasionally I have to take action.
Sometimes it’s cool to have banter with the audience. Occasionally, somebody will say something, and I’ll say something right back, and everybody laughs, and it’s funny.
I think I’m a much better father as an older man than I was with my first kids. Occasionally, I have to yell at the little guys, but they don’t take me seriously. ‘Listen to the old guy,’ they say. ‘Isn’t he great? He’s mad.’
I’m lactose intolerant, so usually pizza makes me feel horrible. But I’ll occasionally go very hard and do pizza and pineapple.
I’m really not a journalist, and I don’t do a ton of newsy pieces. Occasionally I’ll write about something that’s going on recently, but I really don’t do a ton of stuff that’s tied to current events.
Occasionally, I’ll be on the Internet and see something about me and give in to the urge to click on it. It’s hard not to. Usually, I wish I didn’t.
I was a lawyer for 10 years, and several of my clients had the misfortune, through no fault of my own, of going to prison. I visited them occasionally.
Occasionally I get messages from women saying that I’ve brought them some joy, and that’s unbelievably thrilling.
A youngster should know his game first. If he knows his game, he can modify it at the top level if required. But if he doesn’t know his game, then it is difficult to get success at international level. You will get success occasionally but not regularly.
I hope in my books I help children to see their strengths, and show them I have some idea of what they may occasionally be going through. Especially at tricky moments when it is easier to go back and evade things rather than go forwards and confront them.
I occasionally rapped along to some homegrown Korean rap. And then a friend introduced me to Wu-Tang and played me ‘Enter the 36th Chambers.’ It was very shocking. And then I started to look for different albums. This was pre-Internet, so it’s hard to find the music, and it was even harder to find music videos.
I go into Daunt Books in Marylebone every couple of weeks. My wife Sara demolishes books, but I only buy stuff occasionally. I like boys’ things, spies and the Cold War.
I got introduced to yoga in drama school. It’s now a mainstay in my life, ever since I got instructor certification at a teacher-training intensive. I even occasionally guide an intimate class of friends and family, but mostly the training was to serve and deepen my own practice.
‘Middle class’ used to mean having two children and sending them to high-quality public schools, or even occasionally to private schools. It meant new brown Stride Rite Mary Janes with little purple and silver flowers when the old shoes were pinching the toes.
The troops were occasionally occupied in pursuing scattered bands going north or south, and on three occasions the large camp of Sitting Bull ventured south of the Canadian border, and important expeditions were sent against them.
I was a good kid, but I was just very chatty. Teachers were rarely entertained, but occasionally a child was, which was enough for me. Everything was so urgent. I needed to say it immediately.
My sexuality is not black and white. I’m a gay man who has occasionally drifted. I am not bi. I’ve had perfectly pleasant romances with women, but they weren’t sustainable. My passion wasn’t there. I would always be looking at guys.
It’s a great privilege to be asked to help the country – even if it occasionally comes with some degree of criticism.
My overall quest is always to do something that’s somehow different from whatever it is that I just got done doing. If that can include occasionally playing an older guy who has a romantic side and a romantic relationship, than that’s a real treat.
While it was occasionally done here or there, nobody else had a figurehead like Walt doing it. Jack Warner wasn’t on TV. Walt was the boss, but he had a real public profile and he used it to his advantage. And he became a household face.
Occasionally, I would focus on a particular school project and become obsessed with, what seemed to my mother, to be trivial details instead of apportioning the time I spent on school work in a more efficient way.
Later, I found it too hard to give up, and so I’ve continued eating fish and other seafood, while trying to ensure it’s sustainably sourced. This means I’m now one of those vegetarians I used to frown at – one who occasionally eats fish.
I live in the area where the Hollywood sign is. Every afternoon, I’ll take a daily walk, and there are loads of tourists always on the street taking photos of the Hollywood sign. Occasionally, I’ll still get recognized as ‘Gunther,’ which is okay with me.
Given how unflinching his productions have been, the 44-year-old McQueen is remarkably gentle and thoughtful – so much so that he will request a moment to consider a question, and turn it around in his head to get the shape and weight of it, before answering, occasionally with an excited rush of words in response.
Creating a decent pop song is a challenge – and occasionally, once in every decade – it’s kind of fun to do that.
Occasionally, I’ve been asked to do American roles, and once or twice I have, but I don’t understand Americans. I don’t have any real feeling for American culture.
As I occasionally survey the pack of sycophantic shih tzus in the Washington press corps, wriggling on their bellies to kiss the feet of those in power, I feel plumb discouraged about the future of journalism.
Standing beneath the white light of an Apple store is like standing on a Stanley Kubrick movie set. His ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ predicted Jobs and a future where technology was our friend. Kubrick, of course, didn’t like what he saw. And occasionally, I have my doubts.
Occasionally, a re-enactment is a fine thing. I love Civil War re-enactments.
My parents wielded disposal cameras and Polaroids with the best of them, occasionally begging for at least one decent photo of my brother and me at the state fair, in front of the Golden Gate bridge, or smiling half-heartedly next to a mascot.
Others too would occasionally entertain and privately express such doubts; though we all had been most solemnly warned by the cruel murder of Saint Francis.
Do I think the West End relies too heavily on star names? Yes, I do, and it can result in miscasting and sub-standard stuff. Not always, but occasionally.
The trouble is now, with rock’n’roll and stuff, it gets so big that it loses what once upon a time was a magnificent thing, where it was special and quite elusive and occasionally a little sinister and it had its own world nobody could get in.
I read books all the time. I’m just half looking for something to do; I mostly just read for pleasure. Occasionally I stumble across something that could be a movie, but I don’t put a book down just because I don’t see a movie in it, either.
Sitting on the airplane seat today, I was thinking – I have been in different cities every week. Most of the time, it’s because of golf tournaments. But occasionally, I also attend various events. All of a sudden, I feel like I am a business woman. Although sometimes I feel tired, I do enjoy this kind of life.
I travel a lot, read a lot, meet my friends, like to cook occasionally.
I’m basically a movie actor now, and my big roles are mostly horror movies – unless I’m doing a guest star or something – and occasionally I try to get back into television.
I love dark chocolate, but I will have a piece just occasionally.
It’s always great to see one of the actors I’ve worked with from ‘Caddyshack’ and ‘TRON.’ I run into them occasionally at events.
Fame… it’s been a challenge, let’s put it that way. It’s a privilege and a responsibility, and I’m not sure I carried the responsibility well at times, which is embarrassing. And I’ve had to look and be disappointed in myself occasionally for how I behaved in some circumstances.
I currently use Ubuntu Linux, on a standalone laptop – it has no Internet connection. I occasionally carry flash memory drives between this machine and the Macs that I use for network surfing and graphics; but I trust my family jewels only to Linux.
Occasionally the state of the planet can knock me off my perky perch.
I’ve mostly worked in Hindi and occasionally Gujarati, which is my mother tongue.
To be occasionally quoted is the only fame I care for.
I get up at 3:30 A. M. We’re on air from 6 A. M., so if I’m in the studio, I’ll have eggs at around 7 A. M. from the canteen – scrambled or poached, occasionally with a slice of brown toast.
I’m not a crazy Twitter guy to where I’m tweeting out stuff every day, and rarely even once a week do I tweet. But I mean, occasionally, I read some stuff.
Occasionally, family members treat each other with less courtesy and kindness than they do acquaintances or even strangers.
I think that former leaders are best seen occasionally and not too often heard – particularly on the subject of their successors!
When I go a stretch without tweeting, I will occasionally get an email from my mom, checking in. I always find this amusing but also gratifying: Thanks to Twitter, I can keep in touch with my parents and let them in on what I’m doing in a way that even the regular phone calls of a doting daughter can’t do.
I hardly ever watch TV and when I do it’s sports. I’ll occasionally stick on some old episode of ‘Fawlty Towers’ or something.
Wikipedia’s funny. Some of the stuff on there – I go there occasionally – it’s unbelievable the amount of stuff that people will write on there.
My guilty pleasure is bread pakodas and samosas, which I eat occasionally.
I like stirring things up. I’m on the side of the kids more than I am on the adults. And occasionally I find some adults that have that same mischievous streak, so I don’t get in too much trouble.
The thing about hoofing is that It’s much more intricate than people realize. Occasionally you see some good hoofing on TV. Bob Hope is very good at the old slide steps. George Burns does a good, old-fashioned sand dance from Vaudeville!
I have spoken to expert audiences occasionally, but then no audience is expert over the whole range of things I want to explore.
It was completely fruitless to quarrel with the world, whereas the quarrel with oneself was occasionally fruitful and always, she had to admit, interesting.
I went through different styles but realized Ray-Bans are the classics. You can’t go wrong with them. I explore and cheat on them occasionally, but I always go back to the aviators.
Somebody once told me I treated my smart phone like Wilson, the volleyball Tom Hanks turns into a friend when he’s stranded on a desert island in that movie ‘Castaway.’ It’s an apt comparison: parenting a toddler occasionally feels like being marooned, and your phone is your only connection to the rest of the world.
We are all just little dolls of ourselves. Who occasionally pull back the curtains to reveal the real us.
Occasionally when I look at my Instagram and see how many followers I have, it shows me how it’s going up by the minute. It blows my mind, but everyone around me keeps me grounded.
On the campaign trail, candidate Trump occasionally raised the idea of creating ‘safe zones’ for Syrian civilians.
My view is that while you do occasionally have differences you ought to have a process where you can sit down and talk about things. How else do you solve problems?
I occasionally suffer from eczema but only very mildly.
I write in a journal occasionally. But it is not a daily discipline for me.
Finally, let’s keep well in mind the most important lesson of the auto rescue: While government should stay away from the private sector as much as possible, markets do occasionally fail, and when they do government can play a constructive role, as it did in the case of the auto rescue.
Occasionally people ask me how it is I write different types of things, and my answer to that is it’s very natural. You get bored writing one kind of thing all the time.
In his holy flirtation with the world, God occasionally drops a handkerchief. These handkerchiefs are called saints.
My mother tried really hard to protect us, but occasionally, after afternoon cartoons of whatever was on… the nightly news would come on, and I’d see footage from the war zone, and I would hear the word ‘Vietnam,’ and I would know my dad was over there, and it was a very frightening experience for me.
The world is never quiet, even its silence eternally resounds with the same notes, in vibrations which escape our ears. As for those that we perceive, they carry sounds to us, occasionally a chord, never a melody.
I’m often asked – and occasionally in an accusatory way – ‘Are you atheist?’ And it’s like, ‘You know, the only ‘ist’ I am is a scientist, all right?’ I don’t associate with movements. I’m not an ‘ism.’ I just – I think for myself.
Rodents are pests and not pets, and anything that manically runs around a wheel 24/7 and occasionally has 19 babies in the middle of the night should not be brought into the house.
From my time at Nokia, I’ve seen the 99% positive and occasionally negative impact that communication tools can have on people.
I think privacy is valuable. You don’t have to share everything, and it’s healthy to occasionally hit the pause button and ask yourself if you’re oversharing. But at the end of the day, if you’re not doing anything wrong, you don’t have anything to hide.
Occasionally, some brother sings very earnestly through his nose, often disturbing those around him, but it does not matter how the voice sounds to the ears of man. What is important is how the heart sounds to the ears of God.
Occasionally when I’m procrastinating writing, I’ll while away the hours on iTunes. You can just keep going forever and find these bands you’d never normally hear of.
I really like the look of the 1950s, lots of suburban Americana influences. I’m 5’4′, so I like kitten heels occasionally because I can move around a bit easier, but pointy-toed pumps are very elongating.
I don’t have a problem with the concept that miracles might occasionally occur at moments of great significance, where there is a message being transmitted to us by God Almighty. But as a scientist, I set my standards for miracles very high.
I would love to live in the wilds of nowhere, and when writing ‘Chronicles,’ I would occasionally rent a cottage in the middle of nowhere that had no mobile reception, but I’m not about to move away from my family.
Occasionally, you feel like the only person able to win the match. So you take all the responsibility, you do too much, and you do something bad.
I wouldn’t attach too much importance to these student riots. I remember when I was a student at the Sorbonne in Paris, I used to go out and riot occasionally.
Even though I occasionally appear on it, I don’t watch television.
I lead a very regimented life. I take excruciating care of myself: I take a lot of vitamins, get enough sleep, don’t drink apart from a glass of wine occasionally.
The sometimes-tough love of the Christian faith of my childhood demanded a certain amount of self-reflection and, occasionally, self-criticism.
I do not read newspapers. I do not watch television. I am not interested in current events, although I will occasionally discuss them if other people want to discuss them.
We may have limped onto Broadway as the underdogs, but underdogs bite back occasionally.
I occasionally play works by contemporary composers and for two reasons. First to discourage the composer from writing any more and secondly to remind myself how much I appreciate Beethoven.
Actually, I find it embarrassing being a pop star. I prefer it when people just treat me like anybody else, although occasionally there is a side of me, which is indulgent and I expect certain things because of my position. It’s one of the perks.
I still tell a lot of jokes and do a lot of funny comics, but the stuff I like best is the personal stuff. I will still occasionally talk about my job and retail, but it evolved.
I was once in a very, very bad car accident. So my drawing arm is full of pins and platinum stuff. Occasionally it hurts. But I found that after the arm was put back together I could draw better than before. I have no idea why.
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.
The conscience of an artist worthy of the name is like an incurable disease which causes him endless torment but occasionally fills him with silent joy.
You have to remember that I was a bright but simple fellow from Canada who seldom, if ever, met another writer, and then only a so-called literary type that occasionally sold a story and meanwhile worked in an office for a living.
Well, it so happens that I have had a spinal curvature since I was about thirteen and every once in a while that has given me some trouble, and at that time it began to kick up again. and occasionally I have to get into bed and nurse a severe backache.
For my own part, I had rather suffer any inconvenience from having to work occasionally in chambers and kitchen… than witness the subservience in which the menial class is held in Europe.
Most magazines have become wallpaper, they’re all the same, all the same celebrities. It’s really an abysmal time in American journalism right now. But occasionally one story or two will pop out.
People assume because I have a very thick skin that I don’t have feelings. I don’t, for the most part. But occasionally, I’m capable of great acts of charity. I tend to do it quietly.
I felt like people who had a lost mindset or who occasionally did stupid things were having a ‘donkey’ moment, or some of them are permanent donkeys, so I just started calling them donkeys. So when I went to Philly to do my own morning show, that’s when I first started doing ‘Donkey of the Day.’
Im an entirely one-paced runner, but occasionally I try and go into a slightly higher speed and usually pull my dodgy hamstring. So I just potter along with my rather odd bow-legged running style.
I really spent most of my childhood in my bedroom watching Barbra Streisand movies and musicals and making videos. That was kind of where it all started for me. I would go to the beach occasionally.
I like to play characters that have an inner confidence about them that maybe you wouldn’t expect them to have and that they aren’t afraid to unleash occasionally.
I don’t really set out to please anybody, and I don’t think I ever have. I have occasionally been encouraged to try to write something specifically for the purpose of releasing it as a single to get radio play. Those are not my best songs, as a rule.
I know what she used to do sometimes. She kept her best cape she wore on the street in there, and she used occasionally to go up there to get it and to take it into her room. She kept a great deal in the guest room drawers.
My name is Bruce Feiler, and I’m an explainaholic. I first heard this word used to describe Isaac Asimov, and I knew instantly that I suffered from the same condition. It’s the incurable desire to tell, shape, share, occasionally exaggerate, often elongate, and inevitably bungle a good story.
Occasionally, you get a nice surprise when someone covers your song in an extraordinary way.
As actors, we have the best job in the world, but occasionally it can be made difficult by ego and by not listening to each other and lack of communication.
I usually start with an ending, then outline high points of things that happen, and kind of make up the rest as I go along. Occasionally, the characters surprise me, and I wonder how we got here. Other times, the characters are stubborn and won’t do something I want them to in the story.
Occasionally people will look at me and do a double take and they’ll look at me like they’re trying to think where they know me from.
My parents were brutal to each other, so I slept in the basement by an old coal-fired furnace. I became a street kid. Occasionally, I’d live with aunts or uncles, then I’d run away to live in the woods, trapping and hunting game to survive. The wilderness pulled at me; still does.
I’m an all-things-in-moderation kind of person. I do eat a warm donut occasionally. I especially enjoy a cider donut when I’m apple picking. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
The worst feeling in the world is the homesickness that comes over a man occasionally when he is at home.
I think Phil Collins is one of the most underrated musicians, singers, performers – he is absolutely amazing, I think, and I think he’s probably got a bit of a rough ride occasionally because he became so mainstream and so popular.
When I was living in New York and didn’t have a penny to my name, I would walk around the streets and occasionally I would see an alcove or something. And I’d think, that’ll be good, that’ll be a good spot for me when I’m homeless.
Occasionally, I hear grumbles about everything being a series or a trilogy, but apart from the question of them maybe selling more books, I think that there’s a real problem in trying to introduce a new world or a new concept while also getting your reader to pay close attention to your characters and themes.
You can find, occasionally, some absolutely fantastic things in hunting shops. I’ve got one jacket that I just happened across which is a kind of unwashed leather – completely anonymous but absolutely special.
People will occasionally ask me if I understand what it’s like to be lonely. And the truth is I don’t, because for me, solitariness is a blessing, a gift. Me, I get on fine with myself.
Occasionally, you see presidents come in and provide a clear change in direction of leadership.
One of the disadvantages of being a patrician is that occasionally you’re obliged to act like one.
I try to eat as near perfect as possible, but once in a while I eat for my taste buds. For example, I occasionally like to treat myself to a small cup of chocolate frozen yogurt – plus toppings.
Everyone has their ‘Showgirls.’ We remember the great films actors have been in, and the rest get forgotten. But occasionally, people like to revisit the ones that get swept aside.
There’s a process: you audition, you get rejected, occasionally you get jobs, and it’s exciting, but it’s all little stepping stones.
You always have to be on at times, and occasionally people get upset if you say no to a picture when you’re eating dinner or something, and that’s kind of the hard part. Or if you get crazy rumors that swirl around you from time to time that are just silly.
Television, although It’s in steep decline, still occasionally gives voices to people who don’t have voices.
One thing I’ve learned is that when you shoot something in the U.K., there’s always going to be somebody called Trevor on your set. And maybe a Nigel. Occasionally a Colin.
At home in L.A., Sunday is lazy. It’s the wife and me lying in bed with coffee, watching ‘The Soup’ or something funny on TiVo. The kid will occasionally join us. Eventually, breakfast is at a place down the street called Paty’s. And we always have some kind of great dinner – my wife makes a great roast beef.
The column’s worked out great for me. I’ve gotten a ton of ego satisfaction, had a lot of fun, won a batch of prizes and occasionally done some public good.
I don’t mind if the couple next to me is tense or the kids are whiny. I’d even be happy to hear an honest argument, evidence of thinking. I’d like to know these teeth-perfect families don’t just buy each other stuff but just occasionally can talk to one another.
And occasionally some of the nations that will be partners in this would probably not be, in terms of passing a pure human rights check, have everything going for them that you would like to have.
