My parents were reluctant to let me start auditioning until I was at least a little bit emotionally stable – I’m still working on that!

I’d love for my son to go, ‘Hey, Mom, I’d love to have a career that is stable.’ I’d be so happy. But of course, whatever makes him happy is what he’s going to do.

Soren Skou
Like it or not children are being raised by gay and lesbian parents all over America – as many as 10 million children. And it does nothing to make their lives more stable and secure to attack their families, to attack their parents to prevent us from marrying each other.

Kate Bush
The world in the ’90s had seemed somewhat stable. There was talk of the end of history, a calm consensus around where we were all going. Consumer capitalism with some sort of social conscience. Then 9/11 happened, and that illusion was blown out of the water.

Bettany Hughes
I don’t necessarily want kids. A lot of our friends are having children and I don’t know if it’s for me. I haven’t come down hardcore on either side of the argument. I think when people come from a stable family having children becomes a celebration and I’m not sure it would be that way for me.
Jon Hamm
A home is crucial, the foundation of a stable family.
Eric Cantona

Liam Fox
We see evidence that lakes and forests and wetlands can have different equilibria – so you have a savanna system that may be stable and thriving, but it can also tip over and become an arid steppe if pushed too far by warming, land degradation, and biodiversity loss.

Horses, I used to go out to the LaBagh Woods and ride at a stable once every two years or something; no idea about horses. Dogs, I knew, had personalities, but not horses.
Michael Mann
Leaving Iraq without military assistance during its transition, and before it is stable enough to ensure its own citizens’ security, would pose a tremendous risk. We must complete our mission.

Martin O’Malley
I think that we value fairness in this country. We value equal opportunity. Without a stable home, those ideals really fall apart.
Matthew Desmond
For some in Washington, it’s become sport to pick on the federal workforce. I think they do so unjustly. The very foundation of a stable America is having a government that functions well. Many countries have dysfunctional governments, because they don’t have a good government workforce.

They were looking for a stable, but we didn’t have one. In fact, we weren’t very stable ourselves.

Kathy Freston
For me it would be unhealthy to be a method actor; I’m not mentally stable enough for that – I need to separate my two worlds.

David Ignatius
I want to have a stable professional career as possible, which is obviously hard to do.

Alfred A. Montapert
The origins of modern marital instability lie largely in the triumph of what many people believe to be marriage’s traditional role – providing love, intimacy, fidelity, and mutual fulfillment.

Stephanie Coontz
40 seems to be the new 25 in snooker so there is no rush, but I would like to start hitting the time where I’m more stable and regularly hitting the quarters and semis, push on and make some money.
Kurt Maflin

John Steinbeck

Max Heindel
We have antiquated policies that were put in place in the 1970s that prohibit us from exporting our crude oil, yet we have allies around the globe asking the United States to provide them with a stable supply of energy.
Cory Gardner
I think the relationship between social-dominance orientation in people and the extent to which they’re made uncomfortable by ambiguity and novelty is really important. Better a stable world that’s familiar, in which I’m doing pretty poorly, than dealing with all the ambiguity of a changing world.
Robert Sapolsky
Ideas rose in clouds; I felt them collide until pairs interlocked, so to speak, making a stable combination.
Henri Poincare
I don’t want to sound Pollyannish about this. I understand that poverty is never just poverty. It’s often this collection of maladies, this compounded adversity. I’m not naive about the problem. But I think that stable, steady housing is one of the surest footholds we could have on the road to financial stability.
Matthew Desmond
When you’re at a club that’s stable and everyone is enjoying it, it’s very hard to consider leaving.

Margaret J. Wheatley
Agriculture is not crop production as popular belief holds – it’s the production of food and fiber from the world’s land and waters.

Allan Savory
Kindness will always make things feel better, more stable.
Danielle Colby
If, like me, you have many reasons to be less than secure and self-assured, and like me, you are far from stable even on your best days, don’t for a moment imagine a psychotherapist will be of more help than a physiotherapist.
Charles Saatchi
I’d like to build stable relationships with neighboring countries including China and Russia.
Yoshihide Suga
You don’t need to be stable to be a stand-up comedian.

Karla Crome
I did a lot of choral music in high school, and that was kind of my primary, stable outlet for music because I didn’t feel comfortable being a soloist. It was a cool, safe space for me musically.
Autre Ne Veut
By the time I’m 25, I want to be financially stable.
Too Short
Nothing is eternally stable, and even Kansas isn’t really in Kansas anymore. The earth is in a constant state of flux.
Simon Winchester
People see your life on social media, and they say, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s perfect,’ and I’m like, ‘No, every day, it’s not even just a struggle: it’s something new, and it’s a new challenge to make sure that I’m mentally stable and healthy and that I’m okay.’ It was just great to finally get it out and talk about it.
Karen Civil
From a good lie in the middle of a fairway bunker, I’ll make the same swing as I do from an average fairway lie. I’ll dig my feet in slightly and keep my lower body stable so I won’t slip, but I don’t change my club selection or setup. It’s only when the ball is sitting down in the sand that I’ll make some modifications.
Ernie Els
A lot of people will call me nuts or crazy, but I’ve always been pretty stable. By some people’s standards, I might be crazy. But I realize that I’m not going to harm anyone, and the only place that I live is within my own universe, really – so it’s O.K.
Rachel Miner
No parent, family member, or friend should be told that treatment isn’t available for their loved one. By establishing a dedicated and stable fund for mental health, we will give hope to so many who are suffering in silence.
Kim Reynolds
I like to work at the beginning of projects. Once they get stable, I’ll hand them off.
Megan Smith
I changed my car completely – I was in a sports car and changed to a Jeep, which is more stable for the back and doesn’t put too much stress on it.
Jack Rodwell
The energy transition demands a clear vision of the steps that need to be taken and a stable, meaningful regulatory framework. It appears important to us to awaken public opinion to the fact that this transition will necessarily come at a cost and will, at least in the short term, involve a price increase.
Christophe de Margerie
I want to be in a stable relationship and have kids by the time I’m 30.
Olly Murs
There is nothing stable in the world; uproar’s your only music.
John Keats
When you grow up in an extended family, or in a stable neighborhood with two or three generations of families who live there, you feel seen. Not just the good things you’ve done, the stuff you put on your resume. You know they’ve seen you in your dark times, when you’ve messed up – but they’re still there.
Dean Ornish
It’s very intimate. There are certain moments where it feels like it’s just you and the lens. It’s something that has been a very stable, consistent thing in my life.
Saoirse Ronan
I really want to make Charlton a stable side in the Premier League but I’d be lying if I said England wasn’t in the back of my mind.

Tony McCoy
We are aware of the strategic location of Kuwait, besides the stable region.
Emma Bonino
Our youth deserve the opportunity to complete their high school and college education, free of early parenthood. Their future children deserve the opportunity to grow up in financially and emotionally stable homes. Our communities benefit from healthy, productive, well-prepared young people.
Jane Fonda
Markets themselves are looking for stability, and I think we have underestimated the capacity of Europe… to actually create a more stable framework for the whole issue of debt management, bonds, and so on.
George Papandreou
People are looking for something a little more stable; people are feeling like they need to get closer to God.
Dolly Parton

Bebe Buell
I am very lucky that I came from a stable home, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life until acting sorted of landed in my lap when I was in my 20s. Acting, to me, was a bit like the ladder I used to climb out of feeling lost.
Ty Burrell
I can kind of make money through my other passion, which is brewing, and that’s a pretty stable business, and it would free up my timeslot to take roles that I really liked and that I thought were interesting.
Dylan Sprouse
I know a lot of very stable gay couples.
Condoleezza Rice
You don’t meditate once and suddenly your life turns around. What it does is it lets you train your brain to be able to become more stable in an action-oriented way.
Goldie Hawn
If Britain is to have a stable, affordable pension system, people need to work longer, but we will reward their hard work with a decent state pension that will enable them to enjoy quality of life in their retirement.
Iain Duncan Smith
Paleoclimatic records show clearly that the past 10,000 years, the Holocene, is a remarkably stable period in which we went from being a few hunters and gatherers to become more sedentary agriculture-based civilizations, which then moved us to the current populated modern era.
Johan Rockstrom
I wanted to put together a Christmas album that went back to the stable in Bethlehem and the source of it all. It kind of gets lost sometimes.

Tom Sizemore
For the working actor, there’s nothing more stable than a network television show.
Reggie Lee
It no longer makes sense to see singlehood and marriage as two distinct and stable social categories that should be accorded different legal rights and social esteem.
Stephanie Coontz
Art was, seriously, the only thing I’d ever wanted to own. It has always been for me a stable nourishment. I use it. It can change the way that I feel in the mornings.
David Bowie
It takes about two and a half percent growth just to keep unemployment stable.
Ben Bernanke
I think that an advanced planetary civilization will modify their own planets to be more stable, to prevent asteroid impacts and dangerous climate fluctuations.
David Grinspoon
In the old 20th-century income distribution system, the shares of income going to capital, mainly in profits, and labor, in wages and non-wage benefits, were roughly stable. But that system is no more.
Guy Standing
If you look at Earwolf, we’ve tried to have a really diverse stable of hosts. Even my show can get a little ‘dudey’ sometimes.
Scott Aukerman
As I’ve gotten older and my life is a lot more stable, I’ve gotten more into storytelling.
Scott Weiland
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are a form of money that’s a stable field that the government can’t destroy and can’t distort. Because its creation is governed by the laws of mathematics. It can’t happen any faster or slower than a certain rate, and it all sort of self-adjusts.
Patrick M. Byrne
We would like a stable policy framework, and whatever incentives and tax structures are there should be made known to investors upfront. There should be credibility, clarity and continuity in both policy formulation and its implementation.
Narendra Modi
I will always choose the dollar bill carrying a wildly fluctuating discount rather than the dollar bill selling for a quite stable premium.
Michael Burry
The Y2K bug is a genuine technical concern, consuming the energies of many specialists. But the prophecies of doom represent a broader worldview using the bug as a news hook. In this vision, the good society is a stable society, undisrupted by innovation, ambition or outside influences.
Virginia Postrel
I worked with sociopaths and psychopaths in a mental hospital, and in my opinion, Casey Anthony is not emotionally stable.
Nadya Suleman
If the composer withholds more than we anticipate, we experience a delicious falling sensation; we feel we have been torn from a stable point on the musical ladder and thrust into the void.
Levi Strauss
I had quite a chaotic home life, it wasn’t stable, my diet wasn’t great. I was never an overweight child, but I had behavioural issues. I think that was linked to my upbringing and not having a great start with my nutrition.
Joe Wicks
This sort of encouragement is vital for any writer. And lastly the publication of Touching the Flame, which was on hold for two years and went through a few publishers before finding a stable home.
Paul Kane
Carbon has this genius of making a chemically stable, two-dimensional, one-atom-thick membrane in a three-dimensional world. And that, I believe, is going to be very important in the future of chemistry and technology in general.
Richard Smalley
In training, I felt like my body would switch one way, but my leg would kind of stay in one direction. So I kind of felt like it wasn’t stable.

Ben Rhodes
Stable growth ensures employment.
Li Keqiang
If it gets to the point where I actually physically cannot have a child, there’s plenty of children in the world that need a stable home and loving parent. I’m so down for adoption.
Joy Bryant
You know, musicians aren’t very stable, in case you hadn’t noticed.
Josh Silver
It’s only fair that stable gay relationships of long standing should have the same rights and responsibilities as married couples. I know the image of gay marriage is to some people horrific and ludicrous.
Ian Mckellen
Most parents feel traditional professional courses will give their children a stable future.
Amala Akkineni
Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while.

Tom Fletcher
I was raised on the Hudson, in a house that had been the stable of the financier and Civil War general Brayton Ives. In midcentury, we had fire pits in the floor for heating, and rats everywhere, because they nested in the hay insulation.
Mark Helprin
The costs in F1 are extremely high, it is down to the regulators to control those costs through having stable regulations, every time you change the rules, there is a huge cost involved.
Christian Horner
I think, increasingly, people will define success as staying in the League, being a stable Premier League club that treats its fans to good football every year.
Roy Hodgson
If your payloads cost hundreds of millions of dollars, they actually cost more than the launch. It puts a lot of pressure on the launch vehicle not to change, to be very stable. Reliability becomes much more important than the cost. It’s hard to get off of that equilibrium.
Jeff Bezos
My mother tells this joke about how when I was little I used to say, ‘Mummy, all I want is a stable home!’ and she’d reply, ‘That’s all right, darling, we’ll buy you a stable.’
Sophie Dahl
The main long-run contribution monetary policy can make is to provide a stable macroeconomic and financial environment.
Jerome Powell
Saudi Arabia is, of course, the keystone of OPEC. Saudi Arabia has had the distinction of remaining stable through all the escalating tumult of recent decades, reliably pumping out its roughly 10 million barrels a day like Bossy the cow in America’s oil import barn.
James Howard Kunstler
When you tour, it’s so hard on the body. Being in one place is cool. It’s a more stable environment.

Cori Bush
You get a reputation for stability if you are stable for years.
Mark Zuckerberg
Until I was about 16 years old, my dream was to be a musician. I played in rock bands and jazz bands. Then I decided to be an actor and kept the stable career of ‘jazz pianist’ as my safety net.
Simon Helberg
My mother always taught me a lot of important life lessons, and she would always tell me how important it was to tip. We didn’t have much money, so we would tip what we could. Now, it’s at the point I’m financially stable. When I’m out eating, I hope I have the cash, but if I write it on the receipt, I’ll leave a big tip.
Lil Yachty
In more stable political times, a low turnout in the E.U. elections was a luxury we could afford.
Gina Miller
To increase the zone of peace is to build the inner core of a stable international zone.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
With the rather stable ratio of labor force to total population, a high rate of increase in per capita product means a high rate of increase in product per worker; and, with average hours of work declining, it means still higher growth rates in product per man-hour.
Simon Kuznets
You’re better off betting on a horse than betting on a man. A horse may not be able to hold you tight, but he doesn’t wanna wander from the stable at night.
Betty Grable
Countries that managed to rebuild commanding state structures after popular nationalist revolutions – such as China, Vietnam, and Iran – look stable and cohesive when compared with a traditional monarchy such as Thailand or wholly artificial nation-states like Iraq and Syria.
Pankaj Mishra
I meet so many that think population growth is a major problem in regard to climate change. But the number of children born per year in the world has stopped growing since 1990. The total number of children below 15 years of age in the world are now relatively stable around 2 billion.
Hans Rosling
The monetary policy of the United States has a major impact on global liquidity and capital flows and therefore, the liquidity of the U.S. dollar should be kept at a reasonable and stable level.
Hu Jintao
In a vast and diverse country like India, a political party with secular ideology can ensure stable and progressive government.
Zeenat Aman
If our moral attitudes are entirely the result of nonrational factors, such as gut feelings and the absorption of cultural norms, they should either be stable or randomly drift over time, like skirt lengths or the widths of ties. They shouldn’t show systematic change over human history. But they do.
Paul Bloom
My father died when I was nine, but I came from a stable family environment, which I think does contribute to being well-behaved.
Robert Winston
The more stable you are, if you have the same manager, mostly the same players, it makes it easier for the club to play as best as they can. It gives a bit of comfort.
Christian Eriksen
My predictable stable routine completely changed once I retired. I went from a regimented and vigorous daily training program to a routine where every day was different.
Chris Hoy
Ten years ago, I still feared loss enough to abandon myself in order to keep things stable. I’d smile when I was sad, pretend to like people who appalled me. What I now know is that losses aren’t cataclysmic if they teach the heart and soul their natural cycle of breaking and healing.
Martha Beck
I knew after being drafted in the 57th round that I would be swiftly replaced if I wasn’t able to play through a considerable amount of pain in the minor leagues, and ultimately until I established myself as a productive, stable member of MLB.
Gabe Kapler
It is imperative that Congress provides adequately funded and stable budgets which allow us to support Afghan personnel and ensure that Afghanistan does not become a breeding ground for terrorists again.
Elise Stefanik
Music is not a very stable business. It comes and it goes, and so does money, but your education stays with you for the rest of your life. When you have that education, and you have nothing to fall back on, you can get a get a job anywhere.
Love is a component of many different things – the baggage you bring, the moment, what you need in your life, seeing someone as a portal for understanding everything, and all the intensity that brings. It’s not something to count on and act like it’s a stable thing.
Alexandra Cassavetes
I think the most important is to remain as stable and consistent as possible in terms of emotions, because when you’re working, if you work well, you’re always rewarded at some point.
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga
With King Abdullah’s leadership and his people’s trust he can keep the kingdom stable and secure in all its affairs.
Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud

Brian Deese
In addition to the massive benefits that SNAP provides to children, it also gives critical benefits for Americans who face substantial obstacles to stable employment.
Jeff Van Drew
While democracy in the long run is the most stable form of government, in the short run, it is among the most fragile.
Madeleine Albright
We should all live in central or southwest Queensland in Australia, which is geologically stable. Or Kansas or Nebraska, because it’s relatively geologically stable. I am sure there is no emergency plan for Topeka.
Simon Winchester
Our population is headed for a stable plateau, which means an aging population.
Emanuel Celler
I think, fundamentally, open source does tend to be more stable software. It’s the right way to do things.
Linus Torvalds
I’ve thought of the independents as a stable industry for a little over two decades, and that’s because I stably worked in it, so I’ve understood it that way.
Samoa Joe
If your country isn’t stable and free from the threat of violence then you can’t get to work, you can’t get to the local clinic and your children can’t go to school.
Priti Patel
I’m trying to take care of my kid, and the only way to do that is obviously being financially stable.
Jessica McDonald
Proponents of change within Vietnam’s government know their country will be more stable and prosperous if it continues to open up. But principled arguments don’t always carry the day.
Tom Malinowski
Portfolio investment, often called ‘hot money’ because of its volatile nature, can increase the economy’s vulnerability to the vagaries of international finance. Foreign direct investment, on the other hand, is far more stable and driven by domestic fundamentals.
Gita Gopinath
I wanted a stable job, and I wanted to feel like I was grounded with my family and to have personal relationships in my life that were healing and honest and genuine.
Indya Moore
I think it’s probably the Dutch who are to blame for starting the whole ‘art business’, because before they came along, art was attached to relatively stable structures, and it was everybody’s. It was like going to the movies.
Antony Gormley
Currency regimes in the past were always destroyed by volatility. So sooner or later, people desire a currency that is stable.
Porter Stansberry
Used as kites, these rigid stable aeroplanes are superior to the very best cellular kites I can make; they are lighter, pull harder per square foot, attain a greater angle of elevation, and have fewer parts.
Lawrence Hargrave
Americans used to be able to depend on their jobs to provide a stable retirement.
Keith Ellison
There are the people who read my horror novels – the first two of them – and they found them scary or whatever, and then there are some people who are maybe not entirely stable who think that they’re real, who think that they’re being stalked by the same demons or ghosts that are mentioned in the books.
David Wong
Can anyone seriously imagine a society without stable families? Maybe we should raise all the kids in state orphanages.
Rodney Stark
I think that all the talented filmmakers sort of share, I think, a sense of allowing magic to happen; of creating a stable and secure environment for performers to feel they can push to the end of their ability.
Chiwetel Ejiofor
Those who manage to keep the offensive and defensive balance are more successful. We search for balance in order to keep a stable level, which is the most difficult thing to do.
Diego Simeone
Every country has rich people. But only a few places have achieved a vibrant and stable middle class. And in the history of the world, none has been more vibrant and more stable than the American middle class.
Marco Rubio
A stable, changeless state, ’twere cause indeed to weep.
William Cullen Bryant
We are certain that Ukraine needs profound constitutional reform. In all fairness, we can’t see any other way to ensure the stable development of Ukraine but to sign a federal agreement.
Sergei Lavrov
Cooking is an important part of a good, stable family life. I like to get the family together; there’s a huge nurturing element in it.
Jade Jagger
You have to find what makes you stable in the storm. Then, no matter what’s happening round you, no matter what the hype or the publicity, you can still manage to make leaps in your work as an artist.
Jimmy Smits
