We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Project Quotes from Nuno Bettencourt, Jack Dangermond, Maya Lin, Sean Duffy, Katori Hall. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
My current project is my band, Population 1. We are writing, rehearsing and playing in Los Angeles.
We shifted our philosophy from being a computer mapping group that would support planners to the idea of building actual software that would be well engineered. Because at that time, our software was not well-engineered at all; it was basically built with project funding and for project work, largely by ourselves.
I’m not in a hurry to do a lot of projects. I am very resolved in each project I take on.
We see people voting for bills that their ideals and principles are opposed to, but because their little funding project is in there, they’re voting for it. We might say it’s one percent of all spending but the impact of that spending is far greater.
‘Hurt Village’ is based on a real housing project in Memphis, about three minutes away from the Lorraine Hotel where Dr. King was assassinated, so in my work I’m focusing on a very specific area in Memphis. I see ‘Hurt Village’ as a natural extension of ‘The Mountaintop.’
I think I’m better wired for television. I love variety as far as a project. I’m easily bored and the schedule of a television show, it just keeps you going.
During my participation in the Manhattan Project and subsequent research at Los Alamos, encompassing a period of fifteen years, I worked in the company of perhaps the greatest collection of scientific talent the world has ever known.
That’s all true, but there was something else going on for me as a kid, something about my gender identity that I haven’t figured out yet. And that’s one of the things I’m hoping to dissect and investigate in this memoir project.
The only times I’m not relaxed are when I haven’t got a project on the go.
I’ve seen a lot of friends who have a lot of great projects, whether it’s a script or a play or whatever, and it is a great project and they have great people involved, and they can’t make it.
For me acting is a passion and an art, and always will only be that. I don’t have any rules when it comes to acting. I’ll do anything. But it depends on the script. Either I’ll have passion for the project or I won’t. It’s got to fuel me.
I mean I have a project that I have been wanting to make for quite a while now; and basically, it’s a story of my parents growing up in the Lower East Side.
There is a healthy fraternal rivalry, but nothing serious and we both have been looking for a project to do together. I guess he may direct me in a project some day.
For me to do a project – I have a pretty successful solo career, so – for me to even want to do Primus, it had to be a creative step forward.
I’ve never seen most of the fashion reality shows. The only one I’ve seen is ‘Project Runway,’ which is great, but I don’t watch television.

For example, in my own State of Arizona, an Israeli scientist is working with an Arizona company on a demonstration project involving a very fast-growing algae which can be used to power a biomass energy plan.
Let’s talk of a system that transforms all the social organisms into a work of art, in which the entire process of work is included… something in which the principle of production and consumption takes on a form of quality. It’s a Gigantic project.
I really have no preference between TV and film. I think that each individual project is its own thing and has a very different style.
Project management is not hard in the same way that theoretical physics is hard – there are tried and trusted methods that a lot of people without exceptional talents can use – yet we can’t embed it in government.
The idea of doing something that I’ve never done before, that presents a new challenge, that forces me to stretch in some way – that’s kind of a perfect project for me, and especially something that has greater social, conversational ramifications. I mean what more could you want?
In law school, we studied the famous book ‘Getting to Yes,’ co-written by the head of the Harvard Law School Negotiation Project.
Any architectural project we do takes at least four or five years, so increasingly there is a discrepancy between the acceleration of culture and the continuing slowness of architecture.
What I’m looking for is a self-promoting film; a movie which immediately gets people’s imagination is something I can promote – a project which writes its own publicity.
The Global Poverty Project’s mission is to stand up for the world’s poorest people. We fight for the full funding of Millennium Development Goals and advocate meaningful change to government and corporate policies that block progress and entrench injustice.
I see the Beijing National Stadium as an architectural project. I accepted Herzog and De Meuron’s invitation to collaborate on the design, and our proposal won the competition. From beginning to end, I stayed with the project. I am committed to fostering relationships between a city and its architecture.
I always wanted to do something different with each film. So I guess that means that I wanted to not repeat myself. There has to be some kind of a new element in each project that I take up.
Life is too short to be doing work that doesn’t make you feel happy and fulfilled. I’d rather wait for the right project, as opposed to just taking whatever is handed to me.
I went to a Catholic high school and it seemed like every time I drew something for a class project, it either got thrown away by the teacher or something.
Just because I haven’t yet had any project surgery, I’m not going to knock it, because I think women have the right to do whatever they want to their bodies that make them feel good about themselves.
I like ‘Glee’ because I love all the singing. It’s like an hour-long music video. Those kids are so talented, and I love ‘The Glee Project’.
The Human Genome Project has given us a genetic parts list.
When I did a high-profile project, I was not the developer of it.
I’d like to see Apple and Dell factories be brought to the inner cities; in every project in America, there’s some factory there, and it’s abandoned, and I’d like to see those factories open and bring jobs to America.
In art or architecture your project is only done when you say it’s done. If you want to rip it apart at the eleventh hour and start all over again, you never finish. I was one of those crazy creatures.
I’m not trying to project any persona. Often people don’t know where to put me. I don’t fit comfortably under banners, and that’s fine. I’m not worried about not making sense to people. That’s probably my best asset.
When you work in a multicast project, there has to be a lot of respect and cooperation from each other.
I got invited to work on Dre’s ‘Compton’ project.
As a kid, I was always building things. My father had a shop in the house, and we built things – we were kind of a project family. I started out as a painter, and then painting led to cinema, and in cinema, you get to build so many things, or help build them.
I’m a TV junkie, so it’s hard to choose just one. Currently I’m a slave to ‘Black Sails,’ ‘Vikings,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘The Mindy Project.’
Right after I did ‘The Fountain,’ I wanted to go make a documentary or something that was less constructed – more natural. I was searching for a project, and sniffing around, ‘The Wrestler’ fit right in.
If I had a project that I had auditioned for and I was getting close to getting it, I didn’t want to tell anybody because I thought then I wouldn’t get it, but in reality that really had no bearing on whether or not I got a part.
Scotty heard that I was thinking about quitting Apple because of his actions, so he called me into his office and asked what it would take for me to stay? I said, maybe if I could work on the Mac project, which Steve had just taken over from Jef Raskin.
We originally developed ‘The Client List’ along with Lifetime as a TV movie – my manager and I became partners on the project. Then, we brought in Howard Braunstein on the project and produced it along with Lifetime.
I was brought up in many different cultures, moving around all the time, and I find my identity in my songs. I project the identity I want to have throughout the songs that I write.
Doing a movie is a stressful thing. You spend months of you life focusing into that one project, and I want to make sure I do something I really like or I’m really passionate about.
I am a Gobot junkie, and I pitched the Gobots movie as an animated movie a few years ago, and we’re trying to work something out now that the rights are cleared. But that’s my dream project, besides ‘The Goldbergs’ – doing a Gobots movie.
Ideally I’d like to be working steadily as an actor: movies, a TV series, that sort of thing. I’ve been through a few different TV development cycles, and they didn’t work out. When the time and project are right, it’ll come together. Like I tell a lot of guys, it’s not a race; there’s no finish line.
I’m always trying to find something unique or a project that I can do something unique in.
The Internet is part of this ongoing, species-long project we’ve been working on since we climbed down out of the trees in the savanna. We’ve been working on it without really knowing it.
I’m more concerned with getting them to find and strengthen their original voice as writers rather than imposing my own subjective tastes, judgements or sensibility on the project.
It’s a project that touched me as an immigrant and as a New Yorker.
Innovation is what America does best. Whether it is the Apollo Project to the moon, developing the most advanced defense technologies available, the rise of the Internet or the latest advancements in biomedical gene therapies, our nation leads the world in transformative innovations.
During this period, I became interested in how the new techniques of cloning and sequencing DNA could influence the study of genetics and I was an early and active proponent of the Human Genome Sequencing Project.
Don’t undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible.
If owning stocks is a long-term project for you, following their changes constantly is a very, very bad idea. It’s the worst possible thing you can do, because people are so sensitive to short-term losses. If you count your money every day, you’ll be miserable.
The complete lack of governance in huge swaths of the Middle East – that is the project of the American establishment.
Usually when I start a new project there’s a fear of the unknown; maybe it’s a band I’ve never been in the studio with before. People are so different. It’s almost like you need to go through the process, discover and unlock what it is that makes that band that band. And a lot of times they don’t know it.
My father was a very warm, gregarious, sociable person who had many interests. He lived his life very much in the present, full of activities and the next project. He had many hobbies. He was not given to retrospection.
I feel that when people hire me they know it’s going to be a collaboration and that they hire me for what I give on all sorts of levels, from my movement to the emotion I bring to the project, the passion, all of it.
My next project is to get back to that. Actually, to learn how to write poetry. I’m not kidding.
When I was working at Trio, I was pitched ‘Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’ and I knew, whoever gets this, this is a game changer. When I started at Bravo in 2005, it was a hit, and Season 1 of ‘Project Runway’ was in postproduction.
I’d love to have another film to go on to. I’m in the mood to work. But I have to be patient, you know, to find that particular kind of project. Occasionally I’ll write one myself if I can summon up the energy.
We’re loosely calling it The River Project, but hopefully the pieces that we put together will be educational pieces that will throw some light on the situation as to what kind of jeopardy may be surrounding our great rivers.
There’s real peril in trying to repeat yourself, and apply rules that applied to something else to a new project.
Culture is a thousand things, a thousand times. It’s living the core values when you hire; when you write an email; when you are working on a project; when you are walking in the hall.
You know, ‘Project Runway’ was a really special show, and we had a great five seasons with it. We loved that show, and we loved the stories that it brought to Bravo and the creativity. And it was a magic five seasons.
Coming from a Haitian-American home, I thought it was necessary to give back to the country in which my parents were raised. That is why I believe in Project PlayWorld’s efforts to to provide secure playing spaces for the children of Haiti with the Live Civil Playground.
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was not engaged in subversive work; she was an apolitical project manager with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the charitable arm of the Reuters news agency.
Kids leave us and go off on their own lives. Family members tell us what they think of us. Animals can’t do that. They really are blank canvases, and we can project anything we want onto them. So the relationship is very pure and simple.
The project to settle Palestinians here will be never be approved during my tenure regardless of the price.
I don’t know why the guys with the big money don’t find five terrific young producers and give each of them enough to commission a musical and to live on for a year. You’d be likely to get at least one project with a future.
I think that’s something people need to convey because you see all these celebrity moms out there, and the perception is they can do it all, but they have sooo much help. And it’s kind of an unfair image to project for many women, because it is really hard, and if you have help, you should indicate you have help.
I like to mix it up, yeah. I don’t sort of think, ‘Oh, I need to do a comedy, I’ve done three dramas this year.’ I don’t think of it like that, but I definitely from project to project I feel like I want to just do something different all of the time and stop, I don’t want to bore myself or anyone else.
The project which we developed, however, was for a sound piece and I was initially curious that a sculptor should be interested in working with a musician, especially on a project for radio.
Part of the punk attitude was that you should project your music through your whole body… show your personality as much as possible.
I taught myself to tune in to another person’s wavelength, figure out what they were looking for, and try to project that thing back at them.
If I’m not convinced about my role then there’s no fun in working on a project.
There was this project I really wanted before ‘Glee’ and I didn’t get cast – I went in about 13 times and I was so bummed when I didn’t get it. But then a month later I got cast on ‘Glee,’ and I felt like it was meant to happen.
When I sign on for a project, I’m there to give the director all the material he or she might need to tell their story, and that’s the number one priority.
As a producer, I think one of the most important decisions you make is not necessarily the material you are working on but the production apparatus that you choose to develop the project with, and that determines what funding you go to, it determines many factors.
Ideas are really what interest me in producing a band, if I can bring something productive to the project.
When you start a new project, you wonder whether it’s the right choice.
It’s kind of a rule of thumb for me to self-doubt going into any kind of project. I always think that I shouldn’t be doing it and I don’t know how to do it and I’m going to fail and that I fooled them. I always try to find a way out.
How does a project get to be a year behind schedule? One day at a time.
Until now, I’ve not done a project where the produce, rapper and singer has never worked together like this before, and I had a chance to try a variety of styles.
I tend to project my father figure onto any director that I’m working with, or mother, if I’m working with a female, or it can be confused.
I’m not interested in wasting money on a project.
It was supposed to be in the second street project for Main Street. But who knows? Maybe it will be built one of these days. We never throw away any idea.
I’ve been offered lots of movies. There’s always some actor who’s doing a project and would like to have me do it.
My philosophy is, don’t take no for an answer and be willing to sacrifice your entire project for freedom.
In the earlier years when I started this project at Stanford University, everyone told me it was nuts to go and try to reproduce the mysterious complexities that occur in a whole cell.
You know, I’ve never been much of a method actor. I feel like, with every project I go in extremely prepared and I like to have a good time.
That’s Tommy, this great producer who comes in contact with people and must have a mental library of personnel who are great for this and great for that, and he brought this whole group of musicians to the project that I’d never worked with before.
So for me, I had to get something going to promote the new project that I got. I decided to come with the ‘Lost Jewelry’ EP, which is a mixtape but it’s more sexier because it’s all fresh music.
If it is indeed impossible – or at least very difficult – to inhabit the consciousness of an animal, then in writing about animals there is a temptation to project upon them feelings and thoughts that may belong only to our own human mind and heart.
Many people work behind a music project, but hardly get recognised.
Of course, it’s hard to support full-time programmers, so we do get funds from a set of companies that are interested in the health of the Mozilla project and so are willing to support the people working for the Foundation as well.
Drama is my sweet spot, but the thing about being an actor is that you want to do a variety of things. I definitely love fantasy and would want to be in a fantasy project.
With any project there’s one or two things that you really want to do and that’s going to crack it.
The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably recognized it among their earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison.
I love creating partnerships; I love not having to bear the entire burden of the creative storytelling, and when I have unions like with George Lucas and Peter Jackson, it’s really great; not only do I benefit, but the project is better for it.
From the age of four, I was a huge comic fan and still am. When Lost in Space came along it was like being in a huge comic so we jumped at the chance of being part of that project and it proved to be a good choice.
I feel like everyone directs their own career according to their taste, what they migrate to emotionally and what kind of artists they want to work with. And I’m lucky enough to be in a position where I can wait six months for a project that really interests me.
If I can do something in less than one minute, I don’t let myself procrastinate. I hang up my coat, put newspapers in the recycling, scan and toss a letter. Ever since I wrote about this rule in ‘The Happiness Project,’ I’ve been amazed by how many people have told me that it has made a huge difference in their lives.
We have a secret project at Third Man where we want to have the first vinyl record played in outer space. We want to launch a balloon that carries a vinyl record player.
I do like any kind of project that has both comedy and drama in it because in life you don’t have one day where everything is funny then the next day everything is dramatic.
I would not want to be a part of any project that I feel would not work. An actor like me always wants to work to get appreciation of the audiences. And appreciation can only come if people will come to watch the film.
The creative act is like writing a letter. A letter is a project; you don’t sit down to write a letter unless you know what you want to say and to whom you want to say it.
I have a project at HBO and one at the Family Channel coming that are being looked at. Aside from that I am not doing much more than playing golf and some skiing.
Mr. Speaker, the Delaware River deepening project is important for my constituents, for our region and for the entire nation. I trust that, when they examine the facts about it, every one of my colleagues will join me in supporting it.
If a project feels good to you, say yes. And do it with everything that you have and hope that the outcome is good.
Fashion never stops. There is always the new project, the new opportunity.
I think what happens is that you do the project first, then you think about what it’s about. Years later, you figure out why you’ve done things.
Eventually, the state’s funding covered only the stages leading to presenting a film project to potential funding bodies. It was enough to produce a script, indicate casting and put together a budget to present it all, but nothing beyond that.
Well, I got to have a project. I’m not a blue-sky guy at all. I’d never let anybody like me loose in a company.
Since I did the SK Project and I partner with the United Nations World Food Program, I got a lot of different feedback from people online. Through social networks and through the Twitter. I read the comments and see ’em saying, ‘People hungry here, Fif.’
We know the point of the 2010 Census is to count us, one by one, to tally every last resident, but the massive project of course has more prying, if limited, interests.
Climbing a big wall over several days is like running a giant construction project: constantly making lists, rigging ropes, organising food, figuring out camera angles – but you’re in this crazy place with your best friends, and it does take on a party atmosphere sometimes, like a big dudes’ camping trip.
For me, it was a lot of pressure to make another movie after ‘Inglourious Basterds’ because I didn’t want to do something wrong. I wanted to have a beautiful project for another American movie.
I really have learned to live in the moment. I don’t question things too much or try to project into the future. That’s how life should be.
I don’t know if I have good habits, but I’m very devoted to writing. I’m very compulsive about having a project, at least one, and trying to follow the business as much as I can. I keep on top of all the entertainment business news.
Once you make a studio 700 million dollars or so, or whatever the insane number is, then they finally seem to trust you, no matter how off-the-wall your project is.
I have always chosen subjects which are little different, and not subjects that you see. That challenges me and the actors who work in the project.
I’d like to be that chameleon. That’s really ultimately what I want to hear from people eventually: ‘I really love when I see him in stuff, but I never know he’s gonna be here.’ I want to be that actor that surprises you when you see him in a project, and you go, ‘Yes! I love that guy. He’s in this? Awesome.’
Marriage is a difficult project. When seven years have passed and all your body’s cells have been replaced, you’re meant to experience that seven-year itch.
Sometimes it is claimed by those who argue that race is just a social construct that the human genome project shows that because people share roughly 99% of their genes in common, that there are no races. This is silly.
Bad leaders believe that they have to project control at all times.
We’ve observed that people who stall in their personal growth work often have counterproductive soft addictions that stand in their way of growth and having the life they say they want. It can be a simple thing, such as watching TV instead of finishing a project.
One of the things Mr. Kennedy taught me was that in laying out a new project, you shouldn’t try to cope with every little problem.
I’ve always followed my heart and pursued my dreams, and I imagine that people find that inspiring. I hope that is the effect I have on my fans and people in general. I definitely want to project a positive energy out into the world.
It’s not just about the words you use, but the way you use them, and the message that puts over. Also your face too and the way you project your message. If you’re telling the group to stay calm, be good, and you have beads of sweat dripping down your forehead, you’re in trouble.
I never make a choice thinking about the results. I’m never gonna take a role or a project thinking where this could – what this could bring me or something like that, because you’ve got no control about anything, actually.
Somebody gave me this drum machine and somebody else asked me to program something for a project. I really liked programming and I was really interested in using the drum machine.
Each thing leapfrogs. I do a Genesis project – like now, we’re just finishing off an album – and then by the time the album is doing its thing, I could do nothing or I could do a film.
I went to start the first Ethiopian-led project in paleoanthropology, ever. Doing that was not easy.
My students frequently ask what their next project should be. My advice: immerse yourself in the music you love and you will find what you want to do; you will discover your next project.
I think we simply all like to project ourselves into somebody else – somebody who is better-looking, richer, smarter. It’s comforting. It’s escapism, and that, of course, is what the movies are supposed to be all about. Ultimately, I think it’s just part of human nature to pretend.
As a director, you should choose a project that will educate you and enrich your life, because you’re going to be doing it for two years.
Some of these sketches were done at the very beginning of the Pirates project, when I was trying to find a direction for myself. That was the early sixties… maybe 61 or 62.
What I view life like is about energy. Everything is about energy – everything. We physically are little units of electrical energy, and we vibrate and project electromagnetic thought.
I’m thinking about starting a solo project. But it will feature Tyler on all the songs. We’ll call it something like ‘Two Music Boys.’
I find the best things are done for yourself or start as a small project and become a big thing.
Directors are our teachers, and I’m always craving to work with a great director. They’re pretty much the first thing that interests me about a project. Let’s put it this way: It’ll take me a lot longer to read a script if there’s no director attached.
I’m just thinking I’m just like a normal actor who gets scripts, and I read them, and… if I enjoy reading them, then that’s what’s exciting, then I get excited about the audition or the project itself.
The players never think they project enough. In a hall that seats 3,300 people, it’s a very scary thing to play so quietly that you can barely hear yourself.
People see you as an object, not as a person, and they project a set of expectations onto you. People who don’t have it think beauty is a blessing, but actually it sets you apart.
Hmm, can I be obvious and say there is probably a double standard for male vs. female directors? Sadly, I think that’s actually the case. And it probably stems from the fact that there are proportionately so many fewer women directors than men ones that each project is perhaps more closely scrutinized for its content.
Arca was a project born immediately after I came out of the closet in New York.
It’s not that I’m opposed to doing a big-budget action movie. But it has to be the right project.
I’m very happy at City, very happy since the day I came. I knew that the project was good, and in my head, there is nothing else but Manchester City, so how long I’m going to be at City is just never a question.
I try to keep my life low key, and I don’t like going to parties unless they’re thrown by a friend of mine, or they’re to do with a project I’m in, or it’s because I’ve been nominated for an award.
You’ve got to have a young element in a show. Any project needs youth and dynamism as well old codgerdom and experience.
When we were in D.C. my daddy used to cut his hair with a bowl. Crucial. If you’re African, Haitan, Jamaican or even more poor than the people in the project, you’ll know about that.
It takes half your life before you discover life is a do-it-yourself project.
The best project is one that asks a novel question.
My guess is that people look at me and project their own values – importance of family, ego is healthy but not the biggest thing. I don’t know. I can’t explain my popularity.
We’ve done all the work that HRC wanted on the twin and the project has been completed. We were consistently up there with the top guys and that is what HRC wanted to prove.
It’s not unusual for a would-be entrepreneur to get turned down half a dozen times before finding a willing investor – yet in most companies, it takes only one ‘nyet’ to kill a project stone dead.
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.
Money is not the driving force behind my decisions to accept or reject a project.
By expediting the use of the 1619 Project, our schools are coming perilously close to cementing existing inequality, rather than giving kids the chance to escape it.
It quite often happens that they attach a name to a project and it doesn’t get all the financing it needs.
The federal government has no business spending your hard-earned money on a project to monitor political speech on Twitter.
When I write a scientific treatise, I might reach 100 people. When the ‘National Geographic’ covers a project, it communicates about plants and fish and underwater technology to more than 10 million people.
How do you project a character if you don’t have a sense of where she is from? I’ve always just gotten on a plane to go to the area to get a sense of what it is like, to smell it, feel the earth, hear people talk, go to the marketplaces.
I’ve never said, ‘I’m squeaky clean.’ It’s always the people who project that image that are hiding something. No one’s squeaky clean.
You appear to have a good project… we wish you well in this endeavor.
I undertake the same project as Montaigne, but with an aim contrary to his own: for he wrote his Essays only for others, and I write my reveries only for myself.
Being an actor gives you a chance to play all kinds of roles, very moving and dramatic on one project, silly and girlish on another. That’s the most interesting thing out this business, you get to keep reinventing yourself.
I’d much rather do an obviously commercial writing project than get a day job.
CPEC is an epoch-making project going to put Pakistan-China friendship and their economic cooperation to new heights.
‘Paranormal Activity’ was a unique project in that I made it basically on my own, with a little help, and I had no exposure to the filmmaking world when I made it.
My mother was a high-strung perfectionist. She would check my homework for the slightest imperfection and demand that it be redone if she detected any flaws, which she invariably did. My father, in contrast, was easy going and affable and delighted in helping me with any project.
The original project began because we know the universe is expanding. Everybody had assumed that gravity would slow down the expansion of the universe and everything would come to a halt and collapse. The big surprise was it was actually speeding up.
I’m involved in Project ALS which is trying to get money for stem cell research. That’s one I’ve been pretty involved with because if you can cure that, you can cure so many other diseases.
I’ve always worked on all different types of music, some with specific project goals and deadlines and some not. Sometimes I would write a piece of music that is almost like a film score or weird electro pieces, wherever the muse took me, and I still do that.
The reason for this project comes from my childhood, that is clear to me. I did not have any toys. So, I played in the bricks of ruined buildings around me and with which I built houses.
‘Twilight’ is such an amazing project, and I think it opened up doors for all of us cast members.
I don’t want euro bonds that serve to mutualize the entire debt of the countries in the euro zone. That can only work in the longer-term. I want euro bonds to be used to finance targeted investments in future-oriented growth projects. It isn’t the same thing. Let’s call them ‘project bonds’ instead of euro bonds.
This paranoid Islam, which blames outsider, ‘infidels’, for all the ills of Muslim societies, and whose proposed remedy is the closing of those societies to the rival project of modernity, is presently the fastest growing version of Islam in the world.
Sometimes, being a feminist artist, there are times where I’m in a position where I just want to feel like I’m saying all the right things politically, or I feel like I have to mention my own project over other people’s projects. But I don’t do that anymore. I just want to be off the cuff and honest.
We perceive through our senses a person, a situation or an event, and in an instant, we project our mental models – our fears, background and experiences – onto that perception. This often results in cognitive errors, which means we judge and respond incorrectly.
State formation has been a brutal project, with many hideous consequences. But the results exist, and their pernicious aspects should be overcome.
Our goal is to leverage what is already out in the field in terms of partners, but then hire in project management capability and a bit of technical capability.
We’re all products of what we want to project to the world. Even people who don’t spend any time, or think they don’t, on preparing themselves for the world out there – I think that ultimately they have for their whole lives groomed themselves to be a certain way, to present a face to the world.
Percussion is the most adaptable family of instruments. The biggest challenge is to project percussion in a lyrical way.
I do tend to apply myself to projects that make me uncomfortable because usually when that happens I try to find a way of existing in the project that is more creative.
The Trevor Romain Foundation is a project that I am most proud to be a part of. They work with the USO and help provide support and comfort to military children and their families.
There’s only so many small shows you can do. A lot of the smaller things are more side project things. Not everything is appropriate for Sonic Youth to do.
I always feel like everything I shoot is a student project, and nobody else knows about it. I forget, in the moment, that other people will see it.
Do I believe, for example, that by using magic I could fly? No. How would you get around gravity? Impossible. Do I believe that I might be able to project my consciousness into a very, very vivid simulation of flying? Yeah. Yes, I’ve done that. Yes, that works.
Everybody faces a blank piece of paper, no matter what they’ve written or painted or composed before. I can’t imagine approaching every single new project with-without doubt.
The challenge as we saw in the Nigerian project was to restructure the economy decisively in the direction of a modern free market as an appropriate environment for cultivation of freedom and democracy and the natural emergence of a new social order.
When you look at the runway now, the girls are 15 and 16 years old with no knowledge of clothes, no idea how to project themselves. I was trained how to show off the dress, how to move to make the clothes look better.
For whatever reason, every project I do becomes sort of a cult, or a cultish show, you know, like ‘Battlestar,’ or even a film I did years ago, ‘Kalifornia,’ people refer to it as a cult film.
Every book is a new journey. I never felt I was an expert on a subject as I embarked on a project.
The most challenging project I’ve ever done, I think, is every single thing I’ve ever tried to do. It’s never easy.
I am hands-on in any project that I am associated with. I just don’t want to put my face or name and lend it to a product that I’m not behind a hundred percent.
You just keep moving forward and doing what you do and hope that it resonates with people. And if it doesn’t, you just keep moving on until you find a project that does.
I’m getting good offers, as good as ever sometimes. I just finished a thing with Billy Bob Thornton that was the most unique part I’ve ever played in my life, in the most unique project.
A truly common culture is not one in which we all think alike, or in which we all believe that fairness is next to godliness, but one in which everyone is allowed to be in on the project of cooperatively shaping a common way of life.
These days i tend to use one project I do as a kind of offshoot to the next.
Grief is perhaps an unknown territory for you. You might feel both helpless and hopeless without a sense of a ‘map’ for the journey. Confusion is the hallmark of a transition. To rebuild both your inner and outer world is a major project.
The Ninety-Ninety Rule of Project Schedules – the first ninety percent of the task takes ninety percent of the time, and the last ten percent takes the other ninety percent.
Workflow and usability are not afterthoughts; they impact the core of any project and dictate how it should be engineered.
In my career, there have been roles I haven’t taken because someone involved with the project gave me a bad vibe. I don’t care how much money is on the table: No job is worth feeling uneasy every day.
If the kids did want to get into showbiz then so be it, but I would never project anything on to my children.
When I look for the next project, it’s always about, ‘Is it going to push me out of my comfort zone? Am I doing something different? Am I working with people who are passionate about what they’re doing?’ At the end of the day, if I’m going to be bored on set, then I’m not gonna be happy.
It’s hard for me… If I don’t have a project going, I don’t feel like I’m connected to anything. I don’t even think it’s that healthy for me. I like to get out of bed and have a purpose.
I’m always trying to find something unique or a project that I can do something unique in. When the director has a vision for a piece that I’ve never heard before, and they can back that up with visuals and they talk a good game, I get really interested in the world that they’re trying to create.
Fashion is kinda a joke. I don’t get too bogged down in the clothes. For me, it’s one big art project, just a canvas to show that fashion should have a brand which has someone behind it who cares about different contexts. Social things.
Every time you start a project, you’re hopeful that the critics receive it warmly.
There was a project at Lawrence Livermore National Labs where many years ago they went down this path for scripting and controlling very large numerical calculations.
Project Xanadu is essentially my trademark. It was originally, and has returned to my arms as that.
Regardless of fuel type or technology, every major energy project must face the challenge of siting infrastructure.
I live in Brick Towers, a public housing project in Newark’s Central Ward. I moved in when the projects were privately owned by a man who the residents and I believed was a grade A slumlord.
I’d like to do Broadway if the right project came along, but my mission in life is that I want to help change people’s lives.
I couldn’t do ‘Eleanor Rigby’ because it was clashing with another project – something I was going to go do – something with Liv Ullmann.
I feel comfortable with either digital or film – the director and the project should determine the course of choice.
The privilege of a middle-class, stable, bourgeois life is that you can pretend that you are not complicated and project yourself as a solid, uncomplicated person, with refined life goals and achievements.
The Trevor Project provides crisis-intervention and suicide-prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning teens and young adults. It’s truly a lifeline to so many young people who just need someone to listen to them.
I like the idea of working in an album-sized chunk, you know, and I never looked at Nine Inch Nails as a project that would be a hit-driven, single-based kind of thing.
Everything can’t be a postage-stamp-sized project. Everything can’t be a chamber piece. Musicals aren’t even meant to be that, or identified with it… It’s none of it simple.
My favorite actors are people who I don’t know anything about, and I can project any character onto them.
Animals in general have always been my passion, project, crusade – whatever you want to call it! The ocean is such a huge, beautiful thing that I feel like we all take for granted.
Their term project consists of a fieldwork collection of folklore that they create by interviewing family members, friends, or anyone they can manage to persuade to serve as an informant.
I’m doing a play, a musical. The musical follows the Mamma Mia concept. It’s my first LA theater project.
‘Crush’ is probably the most honest project I’ve ever written. It’s my voice.
‘Shelby Star’ is going great. We shot a music video, and I’m building an app and some other things for the project.
To create a big company, you need more partners, as it is hard to handle such a project alone. Such projects bring access to the expertise and management resources of the partners, and their connections above all.
I’ve started a company, called Tall Girl Productions, and we’ve got our first project that is purely producing, not writing, with a writer named Evan Daugherty. It’s for NBC, it’s called ‘Afterthought,’ and it’s science fiction-ish. That’s fun.
I am constantly thinking ahead to what I want to write about in the future, and when I’m done with one project, I give myself a little time and then start the next one.
I always imagined that I would learn something each time that I would take to a new project, then I realized that each new project poses a completely different challenge.
I read numerous books – loads in fact – and, as I always do when recording a historical project, immersed myself into the subject matter. I spent many hours at Henry’s old homes, such as Hampton Court, and visiting the Tower of London. I read no other books during that period.
The question of feasibility, the question of cost, the question of including partners elsewhere in the world, the question of the effect of this project on arms agreements – all these issues are in discussion.
My mother was really my partner in every project that I had. She was just the great enabler of my dreams.
I’m in the middle of my own ‘Project Runway’ challenge given to me by my daughter’s preschool. All the parents have to make an outfit for their kids, for school pictures, made entirely out of recycled objects. I can not believe I have homework.
I love the challenge of playing characters forced on life-changing emotional journeys. To work on a project with Billy Crudup and Sam Rockwell is just a dream come true.
I – I try to do as much as I can, wherever I am. So, at the farm, I’m always thinking of some new project, some new thing I can do.
You can find a lot of reasonable buys at Wal-Mart. But one key to making it on a budget is by donating your time and labor to the project. Do-it-yourself projects will always help you save.
Whenever something good comes up that sounds like I could be part of the project, my manager and my agents send me in on it.
If you’re going to immerse yourself in a project for three years, why not stake out a chunk of the world that is completely alien to you and go traveling?
Nobody on Earth does a project by himself. So you have to make sure your team is intact.
At the end of the day, though, there are a huge number of considerations that our management team go through before accepting any project – checking out the license is just one of them.
Yes, I was hired by Universal because they needed a comedy director. They had seen Scandal and liked it. I saw an opportunity even in those comedies to begin my project of American films.
I think ‘Dark Blue’ came to me while I was doing a project in London. I read it, and the character immediately popped out at me.
I readily admit it is easy to make of horses what we will. Silent, in some ways reserved, they allow us to train them, and to project our ideas upon them; to ride and drive them, and to make them symbolic, perhaps to a greater degree than any other species.
My career has been very strange. My career is like a heart monitor. I get involved in a good project now and then to keep things going. And then I make things that I work on that I hope are going to be good so I can make a living and keep a roof over the heads of those little monsters I have in my house.
In photo shoots, I rely on instinct. Which is not to say I don’t bring ideas to a project or consider it beforehand.
We have to embrace the good over the bad. That has to be one’s personal project.
My thought process is I have been lied to so much by people who I thought I could trust that it motivates me to want to be as honest as possible, to project that energy, because that is how I want people to treat me.
I am moving towards that zone where I don’t want to be a replaceable name. This is my goal. I want to hear from the industry that, ‘You are the only one who can do this. We will not go ahead with the project if you don’t do this.’ And I want to hear from the audience that it is worth watching a film that I have done.
I had a project called ‘Cover Art,’ which was the first project I did under the new name Anderson .Paak. I went through this process where I was recording new music for about six months straight.
I tell you, ‘Firefly’? Best job I ever had. Heartbroken when it was canceled, but had it not been canceled, I never would have gotten ‘Serenity’. I think ‘Serenity’ is the most incredible thing I’ve ever been able to actually get my hands on and do. I can’t even tell you how much love I have for that project.
The second stream of material that is going to come out of this project is a programming environment and a set of programming tools where we really want to focus again on the needs of the newbie. This environment is going to have to be extremely user-friendly.
Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery. It is a scourge for humanity, and America must project its values and protect vulnerable persons.
That’s a great feeling to know that I’m going into a project that I have no idea what will become of that movie, but I really trust Ang Lee. And I really trusted Ron. It’s just really nice to work with people that you feel that way about.
Irrespective of the language and industry, what I seek from a project is good story and role.
It’s drama, it’s a lot of things, but you know it’s always about every movie or every TV project ever made is meant to be watched. If people like it and support it, that’s what it is all about, really it’s sort of the important part about it.
I love watching reality shows – I’m up to date with ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and I love ‘Project Runway.’ But the shows where they’re just sitting in a house aren’t as fun to me!
My ultimate life dream project is my kids. My family.
When I put my first project out ages ago, I didn’t want to show anyone my emotions. Now I think it’s better for people to understand how I am as a person and let them relate.
I think Together #WePlayStrong is a big step for football. This project is about building interest and professionalism and making younger women want to play football at a high level.
I first considered writing ‘New York’ in 1991. I’d been in the city for a decade, was married to an American wife, and sending my children to New York schools. I was even on the board of a coop building. But I wasn’t sure how to organize such complex material, and for many years I put the project aside.
I don’t try to project any image at all, other than the person that I am.
The typical project design time for a large company like IBM – and they keep track of this – is a little over four years.
Before I joined the project most of the English people with whom I had made personal contacts were left wing and affected to some degree or other by the same kind of philosophy.
To be perfectly honest, I think that as I’m growing older, I’m just growing more impatient. I’ll be very happy if at some point people say, ‘Michael’s grown wiser and softer in his old age.’ But we’ll have to wait and see what my next project is.
I believe it is an important project, it makes the cost of doing business lower and they will make us more competitive at the same time, it will also provide some satisfaction to the people who demand services for them of the quality they want and also quickly.
When you’re picking up and moving, it does create… well, I can sleep anywhere, which is really useful, it turns out, on movie sets. But what it really does is teach you how to adapt and change and fit into a new group or school, and that really is a lot like turning up to a new movie project and finding your place.
I don’t want the power. When a project is given to me, and I say yes, I’m gonna oblige everybody who has the power to try to make it work.
My first Kickstarter project created a book called ‘Clear and Present Thinking’, a college-level textbook on logic and critical reasoning, which was made available to the world for free. As a professor myself, I observed that the price of textbooks was too high for some of my students.
I sample a little bit of everything – a bit of ‘House,’ a little bit of ‘Prison Break.’ I love ‘Project Runway;’ it’s my favorite show!
I hope to devote all of my spare time, which ordinarily would go to research, my summers, and every ounce of strength I can muster to further the project.
So everything turned out fine, and we were given the opportunity to go to Washington and be briefed on the project of man in space, and given the opportunity to choose whether we wanted to get involved or not.
Figure out what you’re good at and start helping other people with it; give it away. Pay it forward. Karma sort of works because people are very consistent. On a long enough timescale, you will attract what you project.
I want to have babies one day but not right now. When I do it I want to do it really well. I want it to be my best project in life.
I’m always interested in working with people who are good team players – that are selfless that way in their interests and dedication to the project.
These new ‘hybrid’ F1 cars represent an extremely complex project.
Also, I plan to screw something up on every movie I do so that I can learn from my mistakes and become a better director with each project.
At this time, my work on the SPS power supplies had just come to an end; I joined a study group on the pp project and an experimental team studying cooling in a small ring (ICE).
I’ve been spoiled by this project. I was given the script and went in to read, realizing that this was a powerful story and one that wasn’t told very often.
Outside’ was more of a personal project. This, the ‘African Giant’, is more of an African project.
In the aftermath of 9/11 and in the build-up to the invasion of Iraq, few questioned the idea that the United States was likely to be the extant superpower for several decades to come. Few anticipated how quickly the neoconservative project would run into the sands – or that China would rise so quickly.
Not only does investing in your infrastructure provide very good construction jobs, at the end of the project, you have something.
Incredibly, oil and gas companies don’t have to pay certain environmental costs that amount to small change to them, while an offshore wind project start-up is faced with fees that could mean the difference between building a wind farm and packing up and going home.
I left acting for a couple of years to found my company, Wayfarer, and the first project I did was this documentary series I created called ‘My Last Days’ to remind us that our time is limited and to inspire us to do more and to be the best selves that we can be.
My first payback to society in life, was The Dolphin Project.
There’s so many things that can go wrong in the execution of a project like a television show or a movie, so many little elements, any number of things, all the way to marketing – like they could market it poorly and nobody finds it and down it goes.
If someone told me when I was 16 or 18 years old that I’d be doing a side project with Tony Iommi, I wouldn’t have believed it.
It’s always hard when you’re working on a project, and you’re seeing it in bits and pieces, whether that be film, television, video games, animation – you only really have perspective of what you’re interacting with.
Big companies do not want to disrupt themselves. All they want to do is improve themselves. They see the blockchain as another IT project. It’s going to save money; it’s going improve a process here and there. It’s not going to change their business.
When everyone around you is doing all this incredible pirate acting and you’re having to sort of play the straight guy and move the story forward, you kind of want to be doing some of that pirate ripping it up stuff, but in truth, to be a part of that project is what I love.
For us, #BlackLivesMatter is really a re-humanization project. It’s a way for us to love each other again, to love ourselves, and to project that love into the world so that we can transform it.
Marketing is what gets you noticed, and that side of it something – this side of it, if you like, doing interviews – is the side of it that I least enjoy, and yet is 50% of the project.
It’s not how many hours you put in with a client or on a project. It’s the quantity and quality of your energy – your focus and force – that determine whether that time is valuable.
You shouldn’t be afraid of failure – when something fails, you think, ‘What did I learn from that experience? I can do better next time.’ Then kill that project and move on to the next. Don’t get disappointed.
One of the most interesting aspects of the film project was collaborating with so many people – directors, filmmakers, and writers – over a five-year period. I learned that there are two components to this.
User-centered design means working with your users all throughout the project.
You know, I’ve always been very open to any project.
I have long been a proponent of a guest-worker program between the United States and Mexico, and in particular I have proposed that Arizona would be an ideal location for a pilot project.
You don’t project yourself in the Hall of Fame as a player. It’s only during that five-year period where people start asking about it, and it doesn’t seem real until it happens.
Mr. Trump, like too much of the church, offers little more than an excuse to project complex problems onto simple villains. Yet the white working class needs neither more finger-pointing nor more fiery sermons.
I think if you don’t feel passionate about the first movie you’re doing, in the end the project will lack something because you don’t have enough experience to make the movie something special.
I don’t work on a project unless I believe that it will dramatically improve life for a bunch of people.
Whenever you do an animated project or a voice-over project it’s inevitable that part of your personality comes into play.
You can make yourself feel better about yourself if you project your shadow side, if you project your own potential for evil onto someone else. By annihilating them and, therefore, your shadow, you bring yourself into some state of purity or reformation.
Whether one admired or was repulsed by the positions he took on matters foreign and domestic, it is undeniable that Reagan’s ability to project anger was highly attractive to his most passionate supporters on the far right – and crucial to his political success.
Actually, the first film that I did was more like college boys project.
Men project their fantasies onto me; they live them through who they think I am.
Others may recognise their world in ‘Eat Sleep Work Repeat’. This podcast is the side project of Bruce Daisley, who works at Twitter. It consists of him talking to experts about what makes us happy at work and why.
I miss my mother very much, and I feel closest to her when I have dinner in the oven and the children are nearby playing and I’m reading a book or doing some little project.
I’ve had projects before where everyone says ‘This is going to be the big thing,’ and it doesn’t really turn out to be. Then there is a little project you do and forget about, and then it comes out, and it’s huge.
I definitely love fantasy and would want to be in a fantasy project.
Although I love working and making movies and that will always be the priority, I really do love continuing my education. It’s great to be active and learning instead of sitting around waiting for a phone call for the next project.
I don’t project no image. I just act like myself. I write about how I feel, the emotional stage I’m in at the time. So I write from the heart. I never write from my mind. My brain, I mean.
For the last 30 years our cinemas have been ruled by science fiction and horror. We’ve had some very good Fantasy films in that time period, but for my tastes I still haven’t seen fantasy done to absolute perfection. That is the hope I have in this project.
I changed my mind because of a scene between Howard Cunningham and Richie. The father-son situation was written so movingly, I fell in love with the project.
There was a second problem that was still not a technical problem… the project became classified. I couldn’t work on it after having gone to all that trouble. I was considered a security risk, so I could not get a clearance.
Before starting a building project, it is wise to discuss your plans in full with the neighbours.
I’m not lying, every single project I’ve done, they’ve all been great.
If women talk in ways expected of them or project a feminine demeanor, it’s seen as weak. But if they talk in ways associated with men or bosses, then they’re seen as too aggressive. Whatever they do violates one or the other expectation: either you’re not talking as you should as a woman or as boss.
There’s something depressing about a young couple helplessly in love. Their state is so perfect, it must be doomed. They project such qualities on their lover that only disappointment can follow.
The war project at Stanford was essentially completed, and I accepted an offer of an Assistant Professorship at the University of Minnesota, which had a good biochemistry department.
I think my view is that whenever you project into the future you’re never likely to be accurate in the details, or the paraphernalia and style. It’s in the spirit of it.
The way I like to start a new project is to take a cover song and make a stab at it, ideally one that has nothing to do with the people in the room.
I love thinking about the film, the project and committing myself as much as possible.
I think I had the most fun making a movie with ‘Dedication,’ just because you knew that it was a passion project for everyone involved. We had X amount of days to shoot New York in the cold. No trailers. Just sort of kind of doing it guerilla style in a way.
Let me tell you, if I could pick the project of all projects, it would probably be Kate Gosselin because if I can help Kate find a man? I can help anybody!
Honestly, before I settled on a name for the Bon Iver project in general, Chigliak was in the running for what I was going to name the band.
I love jotting down ideas for my blog, so I doodle or take notes on all kinds of stuff that inspires me: the people I meet, boutiques I visit, a florist that just gave me a great idea for an interior-design project, things like that.
‘Sara’ was the first film project I worked on as an actress; it’s a short film.
I think that’s become passe, but if you can surround yourself with a kind of monument to yourself and your family – a statement – and you can afford it, then that’s a noble project.
Lyft came out of a hackathon project where we were trying to figure out what does Zimride look like on mobile.
But ‘Cuban Linx’ was a project that really needed to come, and I really wanted to get it off my chest because I know that the fans were really skeptical about it, like ‘is this really gonna be what it’s supposed to be?’ So once everybody caught it for what it was and everybody was happy, that’s mission accomplished for me.
Rwanda was considered a second-class operation; because it was a small country, we had been able to maintain a kind of status quo. They were negotiating, they’d accepted the new peace project, so we were under the impression that everything would be solved easily.
Because I write a book a year, I always want to do one other project every year that’s stimulating in a different way. It means you can be working but not using up your prose juice, you know?
I often concentrate on the eyes and lips, they are great indicators of mood and feeling, and I find that I can project character into my portraits by bringing the viewer’s attention to these areas.
I always listen to a lot of different music when I am working on a project.
Thinking is my hobby. But sometimes you get to where you’re stuck and you can’t figure it out, so you just go work on another project. I always have multiple projects.
I have all the patience in the world about Sirens. For me it’s not a Grateful Dead project, it’s a Me project.
I write for fun. I had written a kind of media satire, but I doubt it will see the light of day. It was just a personal project.
What I’m fighting for now in my work… for an expression relevant to all manner of blacks, poems I could take into a tavern, into the street, into the halls of a housing project.
One of the hardest things about being a musician is finishing a project and then having to wait three or six months to publish it and to do all the sort of promotional behaviour.
My entire political career has been based on building up Britain’s political standing and economic prosperity through our membership of the E.U. and the European project.
Television and movies just take so long. If you pitch a show or develop a project, it can be a year before your show even gets on the air, if it gets picked up.
When I was 14 -years-old, I made this PowerPoint presentation, and I invited my parents into my room and gave them popcorn. It was called ‘Project Hollywood 2004’ and it worked. I moved to L.A. in January of 2004.
I want to be able to work on a project that will give people around the world the chance to represent their own people, their own culture, their own stories, rather than just Hollywood – really, you know, dominated Hollywood. And that’s a dream of mine.
I’m spending all my time and energy on the project at hand.
The bad experiences make you stronger and makes you focus on the next project.
My idea of chilling is to detox, and after you complete a project, there’s so much to unlearn and start afresh.
I did a filmstrip on pollution in the Davison area as my Eagle Scout project and showed it around town. Businesses who were the polluters were mad at me.
We’ve always been the development project that lived in a time pressured setting and always where commercial entities were relying heavily on releases in a certain time frame.
I don’t start with a design objective, I start with a communication objective. I feel my project is successful if it communicates what it is supposed to communicate.
You project a version of yourself to the public to protect and insulate yourself a little bit. Actors come up with a version of themselves in order to protect the real person.
I really want to do something in Europe. With a small movie, it can be an interesting challenge. But I have to get the right project. I don’t think it’s so important to go to Hollywood. All that trash that comes out of there! I don’t want to do that.
I’m always learning from experiences because each one is different and there are different players involved in the project at the time with their own way of doing things.
I think it’s the most extraordinary studio around. I would love to do my next project with Pixar.
The day Tarzan opened in London, I sat in a hotel room and discussed the project in detail.
As I got older, I got more Victorian and morbid. I got into things that circled around death, like skulls or morgue photographs or handwritten diaries. They can be almost haunted with all this history, and you project onto it and then it gets onto you.
You have to wait for a big star to come in and generate interest on a project, and now that has become me, which is an amazing blessing.
I’m really proud of Blair Witch Project as a film, but as far as the cultural phenomenon of it – that was just weird luck.
I am constantly hungry for growth and that’s what drives me. Success or failure of a project doesn’t drive me.
Then I started graduate school at UCLA. I got a part time research assistant job as a programmer on a project involving the use of one computer to measure the performance of another computer.
I appreciate the additional additives and preservatives that help sell a project, but I’m sticking to what works best for me. I gotta sell the album live on stage and make people believe in the songs.
What really excites me in a project is when it goes in a way you haven’t been before.
I’m actually in my 22-year-old son Jason’s band, After Midnight Project. The music is like Coldplay-ish rock.
Every project, I try to go up another level.
You just see a good project and want to be involved in it, and that’s what ‘Dexter’ was.
The Occupy Wall Street project feels like a burning ember that might light the torch of justice and inflame our longing for freedom.
I’d love to act more. I’ve had to turn down multiple movies because I was on tour, but it’s encouraging to know that someday there might be the right role, the right timing. And I’ve been writing a lot of music, so hopefully very soon I’ll have recorded a project of my own. I also want to get a boat and open a restaurant.
It’s easy to get caught up in a moment and think, ‘Oh, I’ve been offered some giant studio film or a superhero franchise or some actor wants to meet with me about a project they want to do.’ And it’s easy to get caught up in a moment because it’s flattering. But you can’t do a movie because it’s flattering.
I think it’s very important to recognize talent in all facets of filmmaking. Making a movie is such a lengthy and intense experience, so it’s wonderful to honour actors, directors, producers and all crew members who put so much hard work and passion into a project.
I always look forward to the next project. That is one of the wonderful things about architecture – you always can hope for another project to design.
I’m living to the edges of my fingernails, using everything I have. It’s impossible for me to look at things politically or in any way as a project, to further my career. You’re injected directly into the blood of the places in which you’re living and what’s going on there.
Every relationship should eventually become a long-term relationship. Any director that I meet now isn’t just a director. He’s potentially a friend, and someone I can call to do a project that I want or that I have.
When the Americans are behind you, they’re behind you 100%, and this gives you real confidence as an architect. They expect you to lead a building project – to make the kind of big and costly decisions that, in Britain, have been handed over to project managers and cost-cutters.
In 2016 the public voted by a majority to leave the E.U. As I can see from my mailbag, some are angry at being deprived of their hopes and expectations. They demand action to implement their vote, just as others require we should think again and abandon the project entirely.
I’m going to design again, but I come back when it’s the right project, so I keep my passion for it intact.
But typically for a project like the Mac, the size we had was pretty good. And it has different stages. The team grows as you have to write manuals and do testing… though the Mac had no formal testing.
I put so much pressure on myself to raise the bar with each and every project. I treat it like every film is my last, and I make sure I pour everything I have into every film I make because if I’m not trying to improve, someone else will.
With classical singing you have to put out so much air – you project, you emit force.
I coach young people. I have a group called BTP – Broadway Theatre Project.
I mean, the Constitution of this country was written 200 years ago. The house I was living in in Madrid is 350 years old! America is still a project, and you guys are working on it and bringing new things to it every day. That is beautiful to watch.
One of my teachers once said that the way you know you’re on the right path is that it works. Now, that doesn’t mean you don’t run into blocks and brick walls, but it does mean that you can find a way around them or find a way to change yourself or your project in order to find the flow again and have it work.
Health is not sort of like a 6-month project. Health is a lifetime accumulation of behaviors.
No matter what it is, pick yourself up and go on to the next project.
Then there’s going to be another project I am involved with, in fact, I’m going back to film it next week. It’s a game for the Internet called Advance Warriors, and my character is Max, who is blind, but he has special powers. It will be a new game played on the Internet.
A project like ‘Rizzoli & Isles’ is something you can’t pursue. It’s something that comes to you… I like to call it ‘fairy dust.’ And it happened without my having to do anything.
I still love coming into work everyday after so many years working as an actress. I’ve been working more or less continuously and I find I have to really want to do the project to make it work because you have to put such an enormous amount of effort into it.
I am very conservative. I don’t invest in anything that is risky. If someone comes to me with a project idea, I let them risk their money, not mine.
I would only take a role that I know I’m comfortable in and I can do. I’ve turned down plenty of things because I’d feel it’s not me, and I wouldn’t want to come on someone’s project and flip that.
The Eurasian union is a project meant to preserve the identities of nations and the historic Eurasian community in the new century, in a new world.
I always wanted to create this community that would come and tell their own story, shoot it – and watch them. The idea is to not have one entity who creates the work, the project, and another entity who consumes it; the idea is people create their own work, like somebody cultivating his garden.
Creative Artists Agency put together a project of extraordinary mediocrity and colossal stupidity. Otherwise, it was great.
I think Clinton fatigue was a real thing. It’s just hard to get comfortable with Gore – it was hard for him to project who he is, the person people know in private.
Not a day goes by where I’m not reminded of Gollum by some person in the street who asks me to do his voice or wants to talk to me about him. But because ‘The Hobbit’ has been talked about as a project for many years, I knew that at some point I’d have to reengage with him.
I have been really enjoying making a project out of seeking out an extremely healthy diet of raw, organic, vegan foods – and I plan on continuing to do so.
McLaren was a risky project because they were completely new, but we are one team – we win and we lose together.
By interviewing at least one veteran, you can preserve memories that otherwise might be lost. My uncle was a downed fighter pilot and P.O.W. in World War II, and I am looking forward to recording his story for inclusion in the project.
I’ve been saying for almost 20 years that I need to do a jazz project and it ought to be either big band or I should do some jazz songs with a trio or quartet.

My thing was always about individuality and about creating a world – because you don’t just wear clothes, you live a life. You have style. You project who you are.
It took three years to put Shakespeare’s words together, there were a lot of words to be studied and a lot of words to be sorted out, and it proved to be a major project.
When we’re anxious we tend to shrink into a defeatist position, curving our shoulders or backs. Learning to stand straight, take a breath and speak slowly helps to project a sense of confidence, relieving some of that anxiety.
Yes, it is true that I wanted to direct Rajinikanth in ‘Bhoothakkannadi,’ and I even narrated the story to him. But the project never materialised.
One answer is that the town’s elected officials thought that the project served a public purpose and that the various subsidies and favors were worth the price. But they may or may not have thought this.
I always believe it’s better to have 30 imaginations working on a project, rather than one imagination telling the other 29 what to do.
After my first visit to Japan, in 1960, to work on a joint model building project at Osaka University, I maintained a continuing interest in the country and the entire Far East.
Every project has challenges, and every project has its rewards.
I stay true because whatever the project is, I’m still looking for inside of that character. It’s the thing that connects him to me and to everybody else. So, the search is the same. It’s to unveil the truth, and that’s how I stay true, because my purpose isn’t altered.
The more people know about you, the less they can project who you are supposed to be. It’s unfortunate that you really only get one shot at that.
It happens very rarely that your ears perk up about a certain project.
In improv, the whole thing is that it is a relationship between the two people, as a back and forth. In standup, you don’t really want to be listening to what somebody is saying; you want to project your jokes into their face.
One characteristic of winners is they always look upon themselves as a do it yourself project.
Water Metro is the first water transport system of its kind in India. The project will be implemented in a timely manner and the first phase will become a reality in March 2020.
I’ve been lucky to find people who want to work with me, whom I respect and like, but the truth is there aren’t that many good projects out there. And we make way, way too many movies. So it’s not always going to happen with every project. But I try and wait it out.
We’ve learned that project by project, you can’t change millions and millions of lives.
But now I really don’t want to work unless I really, really care about a project.
If a film project were available and the timing was right, I might be interested.
While the Environmental Genome Project does not seek to assign allele frequencies, we are aware of the importance of accurate allele frequency estimates for future epidemiologic studies and the large sample sizes such estimates will require.
My mom was a seamstress, and I wish I’d learned to sew because I’m obsessed with ‘Project Runway!’
My system for staying young is to work a lot, to always have a project on the go.
Creativity runs across many categories in life, from the arts-and-crafts project a mum or dad does with their kids, to the bestselling author’s manuscript, to the designs of the hairdresser, to the creations of the computer programming genius.
When a project has an ample budget, I am interested now in using bigger units of materials.
I’m on a single track here – I work to direct what I want to see onstage. I basically have been feeding my own needs – to be working on a specific project at a specific time, and fortunately more often it works than fails.
I’ve started a little independent record label called ‘Six String Productions’ and recorded a couple of tunes, and I hope to do some more with some future artists next year. It’s a real passion project of mine.
I could make a whole album with no one else involved at all. It would be a total, unadulterated expression of myself. Because whenever you have others playing on a project, their influence becomes a part of it.
This mission was the project of a decade’s work.
We always project into the future or reflect in the past, but we are so little in the present.
The Eisenhower Memorial competition and project have stirred a remarkable polemic, the center of which is not President Eisenhower or Washington, D.C. but Mr. Gehry and the values he promulgates.
I’m asked all the time, ‘Doesn’t it feel great to finish the novel?’ And the answer to that is, ‘No.’ It’s sort of a loss to stop a 10-year project, which is an imaginary project in the sense that it’s a work of my imagination.
When I get really passionate about something, the audition process is really strenuous and hard on me because I feel so much for the project, and I become so attached to it. It’s hard. It’s stressful because you want it so badly, and you’re crafting this character that you’re falling in love with.
Within NASA, the shuttle is perhaps the least-groundbreaking project. Recall that Apollo was about creating brand-new technologies that did something unprecedented – putting men on the moon. The shuttle is, by comparison, a relic designed to make going into orbit routine.
I’ve seen ‘Babel’ four times. And each time I realize anew what a monumental project that had been for me.
I want to create the largest-ever participatory art project and highlight the concept of Shadow Philanthropy, where people help others create work without taking credit for it – through this we can really change the world.
It is deeply against my principles to work on any project that I think is to weaponize AI.
The constraints of melodrama can be a great blessing, because they demand that all the characters involved – as absurd and extreme as they may initially seem – must stay utterly rooted in their own reality, or the whole project collapses.
I’ve learned over the years that when I go to that place of passion within me, there’s no force in the universe that can interfere with my completing a project.
I think you can assume because our pool of Asian-Americans actresses or actors – men and women – is pretty small, that whatever project is out there I probably have been asked to audition or I probably chose to not go in it for various aspects.
When I was teaching at Harvard in the 1970s, I went to Project Incorporated in Cambridge and took photography classes. I didn’t even know how to aim the camera in those days.
Often we’re recreating what we think we’re supposed to be as human beings. What we’ve been told we’re supposed to be, instead of who we authentically are. The key about the creation of full self-expression is to be authentically who you are, to project that.
It is important to consider whether the sample size selected by the Environmental Genome Project will provide sufficient power to discover most alleles relevant to gene-environment interactions.
Generally, Hollywood makes the same stories over and over. I’ve never wanted to do the same thing twice. If a script doesn’t surprise me in some way, I simply can’t commit to the project.
We are pushing towards the dream of having our independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. If there is a real project that aims to resolve the Palestinian cause on establishing a Palestinian state on 1967 borders, under full Palestinian sovereignty, we will support it.
I’ve always been a big believer in diversification for anybody. It’s never good to put all of your efforts and all of your time and all of your financial resources into just one project. Diversification is key for any individual and any business.
The BJP does not intend to use Parliament to project Congress’s corruption.
It was easy to persecute me without people feeling ashamed. It was easy to vilify me and project me as a woman who was not following the tradition of a ‘good African woman’ and as a highly educated elitist who was trying to show innocent African women ways of doing things that were not acceptable to African men.
I used to really love Fiend, but he stopped. He just stopped. Every time he had a project, every project – ‘There’s One In Every Family,’ ‘Street Life’ – I had to have them. And he just stopped. And that was disappointing, ’cause that was my favorite rapper at one time.
A life lesson for me is, how do you muster the courage to take on a new risk? Whether it’s starting up a business or taking on a new project or expedition. I think the risks that we take are all relative to the risk-taker.
Is there a better example of natural selection in action than ‘Project Runway?’
Where I feel the most productive and engaged is when I’m buried in code, buried in some project, tweaking some designs. I’m certainly introverted.
