It’s not the way I threw the football – it’s not particular games that I won – but that they remember that here’s a guy that believed, that worked hard.

Kurt Warner
I was a disruptive student. I hated my teachers, especially my Spanish teacher. When I went to see the musical ‘Matilda,’ the horrible Miss Trunchbull brought back all sorts of horrible memories. I’d go into Spanish class, put on headphones, and sing at the top of my lungs until they threw me out.

Roald Dahl
How do you convince somebody to host a stranger for the weekend? That’s not a trivial thing. It’s not something I think you can throw technology at, marketing at, or sales at.

Joe Gebbia
There are a lot of things in Queen albums that you don’t expect; that’s why we threw them in.

Preston Sturges
When I had the idea for ‘Shopaholic’, it was as though a light switched on. I realised I actually wanted to write comedy. No apologies, no trying to be serious, just full-on entertainment.

Sophie Kinsella
In the past, I used to rely on the randomness of working with samples, which was a good way because it threw you in a completely different direction. You just thought, ‘What if I take this samba drum and combined it with an ’80s synth line or something from this record?’
Jens Lekman
Warren Moon and Doug Williams really didn’t run that much. That’s the negative stereotype when it comes to African-American quarterbacks, that most of us just run. Those guys threw it around. I like to think I can throw it around a little bit.
Robert Griffin III
I’ve seen fathers criticizing their sons the moment a game’s over. Not my dad. It doesn’t matter if I threw an interception or a Hail Mary, he always says, ‘Good job, son, I’m proud of you.’ Then he shakes my hand and gives me a hug. Every time.

Gene Cernan
I was eight when I found out I was adopted. My step-brother told me. He’d overheard my mum and my stepdad at the time talking about it, and he threw it in my face. But I didn’t really care. It didn’t seem relevant, because I never once in my life felt unloved or like I was a burden.

Ali Wong

Amanda Nunes
I had a really good time in New Orleans, although I had some very tragic times in Baton Rouge. Some guys beat me up and threw my horn away. ‘Cause I had a beard, then, and long hair like the Beatles.

Lenny Henry

Most people know me for U.S. Open, right? And during U.S. Open, I didn’t show any emotions most of the time. But then after that, I did show – well, in my opinion, it was a lot of emotions. I got upset, and then I threw my racket or stuff like that.

Jack McBrayer
I’m happy because I was proud of what I did at ‘SNL.’ It’s the only time probably in my life that I didn’t have any regrets. I worked really hard. I played really nice. I threw myself into it. I committed. Beyond that, what else could I have done?
Michaela Watkins
I do a lot of working out, but I haven’t been kicking for a while, so one time I was rehearsing a spinning roundhouse and darned near threw out my leg.

Dana White
When I signed up for ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I was nervous. If I threw everything off, there are 10-15 million people watching, and that would be a negative viewpoint of deaf people, and I didn’t want that.

It’s the first film that I made where the director was not present under the camera, and it threw me.

I remember in the spring of 1971, a hundred thousand people converged on the Pentagon in June of 1971. They threw blood; I guess it was goat’s blood or something, on the steps to the Pentagon. People were being accused of being murderers and baby killers. You just can’t imagine the civic outrage.

Jeffrey Tambor
This is rather different from the receptions I used to get fifty years ago. They threw things at me then but they were not roses.

Frankie Avalon
There was a story that I was in a shoe shop and that I threw a pair of flip flops at the wall, shouting, ‘I can’t believe how overpriced these are!’ I thought, ‘Gosh, if I’m gonna take a big stand on something I would hope it would be for more than flip flops!’

Gary Cherone

Ken Wilber
When they sold me on ‘Supergirl’, I went and sat down with Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti, and they described the character to me. Greg Berlanti used a couple of music theater references to kind of explain who the character was. They threw up Chris Pratt in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ as a reference point.
Chris Wood
Sparky Lyle threw me a slider, and it wound up in the seats. We won, and it was a memorable moment.
Richie Allen
Islamophobia first appeared in my life on 11 September 2001. I was coming back from college and didn’t know what had happened. A white van stopped and a man got out. He spat on me, yelled a profanity, and then threw a can of coke in my direction. I cried as I walked home.
Nadiya Hussain
My cousin got wrapped up in the NBA lifestyle and threw parties at my house all the time. So I got wrapped up in it, too.

Glenn Tipton

The Indonesian nationalists, mainly Javanese, who threw the Dutch out – in 1949, after a four-year struggle – were keen to preserve their inheritance and emulated the coercion, deceit, and bribery of the colonial rulers.
Pankaj Mishra
As a quarterback, I appreciated the passer rating whether you threw the ball a majority of the time or if you didn’t throw it as much. You were judged on a level playing field, and I thought teams should be ranked similarly.
Troy Aikman
On my first day teaching my own classroom, I threw up before I entered the building.
Tim Gunn
I’ve broken my hand, I threw my back out once, and then I’ve had some pretty bad cuts, but that’s been about it. I’ve been able to avoid most of the really, really bad injuries and career-ending injuries.
We lived near a supermarket, and whatever they threw away, we would get it, and my mother would make soup. Or she would get a big can of lard, a big can of meal, a big can of flour, a big can of beans, and fix the same meal for months.
Ernie Banks
I remember when I first came out on tour, it was Greg Norman and Nick Price. We forget how big Norman was, what a presence he was. I remember one of my first tournaments, Greg threw an orange peel down on the ground and some fan ran over and grabbed it. ‘This is Greg Norman’s orange peel!’

Taron Egerton
I saw my father deal with every headache the government threw his way – whether it had to do with the signs on the front of the building or the prices on the showroom floor. He knew he could do better, if government would just get out of the way – and stay out of the way. He was right.
Ann Wagner
I never threw the spitter, well maybe once or twice when I really needed to get a guy out real bad.
Whitey Ford

Nia Jax
I was chastised for writing several obituaries for Malcolm X, exploring different aspects of his writing. One teacher in particular told me, didn’t I think I was beating a dead horse? and dismissively threw my paper on my desk.
Ntozake Shange
What happened was I saw this ad for a yogurt plant for sale. It was in my junk mail pile, and I threw it into the garbage can. And then about half an hour later, with the dirt on it, I picked it up from the garbage can, and I called out of curiosity.
Hamdi Ulukaya
I remember when we came in, in 2013, and I was implementing our border protection policy, people threw their hands up – and I said, ‘I’m doing what I said I would do in the way I said I’d do it’ – and guess what: I’m now getting the results I said I’d get.
Scott Morrison
‘Straight Outta Compton’ is the album I’m least happy with. I threw it together in six weeks so we could have something to sell out of the trunk.
Dr. Dre
I used to write sketches. I loved David Letterman in the ’80s. I used to write Top 10 lists for him, and I faxed them in anonymously. I’m sure they threw them away.
Dan Schneider
On the other hand, I don’t understand the enthusiasm for everything in the antique shop that Grandma threw out. There, the sense of quality has declined; otherwise Grandma wouldn’t have thrown it out.
Arne Jacobsen
I went to the studio, and I freestyled ‘Beautiful’ in, like, an hour and a half, and I threw it up, and people were like, ‘This song’s gonna change your life.’
Sometimes I feel like, those superheroes, if you threw a cookie at them, they would be more terrified than the villain because they might have to eat a carbohydrate.
David Harbour

Leslie Odom, Jr.
It was only supposed to be on WCW compilation; on that wrestling compilation. And for that I thought it was good. And then we threw it on our record as well.
Kerry King
The worst I encountered was Peter Manley talking behind me as I threw during our world championship quarter-final back in 2006.
Adrian Lewis
I loved the Rumble that Shawn Michaels won. Bulldog threw him over, and he hung on by the skin of the teeth and dumped Bulldog – that was one of my favourite ones.
Seth Rollins
I once threw myself a surprise party on Twitter because I was lonely. It was awesome. Thousands of people showed up and then Wil Wheaton and I made a bunch of monkey-ponies.

Jenny Lawson
In the early part of the ’70s, we had glam rock, but we also had reggae and ska happening at the same time. I just took all those influences I had as a kid and threw them together, and somehow it works.
Boy George
I dated a guy for over a year who lied about his age the entire time. I found out after the fact and couldn’t believe it! I even threw him a birthday party for the wrong age… I couldn’t get over how hard he had tried to keep it a secret!
Kirsten Prout
When we talk my biggest influence, I have to say Van Gaal. He threw me in the deep end.
Thomas Muller
I did a year at Leeds, studying English. They basically threw me out, because I was taking too much time off to act. So I transferred to the Open University, because I could do it all online. By that point, I had admitted to myself that I had the acting bug.
Holliday Grainger
I think feminism’s a bit misinterpreted. It was about casting off all gender roles. There’s nothing wrong with a man holding a door open for a girl. But we sort of threw away all the rules, so everybody’s confused. And dating becomes a sloppy, uncomfortable, unpleasant thing.
Zosia Mamet
I suddenly had all of this time on my hands, so I just threw myself into the blog and then worked on photos, recipe development and networking with other bloggers, growing a following and growing it into something that could be a business.

Michael Avenatti
My very first live shot was from the White House lawn. I literally almost threw up. I was so scared out of my mind. It was horrible.

My reputation was built on hostility. I had no friends and some very virulent enemies in the old-guard art scene when I began. They threw their heavy artillery against me. They were convinced I was perverting the public taste.
Betty Parsons
When I was little, my older brother, Gary, was forced to read a book a week in fourth grade. The books he liked he threw on my bed when he was finished with them. This continued throughout my childhood and made me a reader for life.
Keith Hernandez
I’ve always been a fan of poetry. I grew up with Lawrence Ferlinghetti and the Beat poets. I really followed that stuff for a while. I just love the way people threw words around like they were painting.
Ric Ocasek
I was home-schooled, was always very close with my mom, and was very straight-laced and square. I was never the rebellious one, and I never threw hissy fits. I was the type of person that would show a Powerpoint presentation about why I should do something versus crying and screaming over it.
Brie Larson
My roots are in music. But Eileen Ford saw my high school graduation picture, and next thing I knew I was on a plane to New York. That’s what threw a monkey wrench in it. The modeling.

At some of the venues, the audience was so loud we could hardly hear what was happening on stage, which kind of threw us back to 1983, when we had very similar reactions on a much bigger scale.

When my mother threw a party, even as a kid, she’d call me in and say, ‘Organize it for me.’
Reem Acra

Breckin Meyer
