I met some fans who said, ‘Please start Twittering!’ They even walked me through it, but I’m terrible at it. I’m so bad at keeping it up. I forget how to use it. And I’m not very savvy: I try to send a private message, and it goes out to everybody.

The first day I walked into prison, and he slammed that door, I knew the magnitude of the decision that I made, and the poor judgment, and what I allowed to happen to the animals.

I met Kim Kardashian the other week, and she knew who I was! I walked in the room, and she was like, ‘I should text Kanye saying you’re here; he showed me your music.’ It’s really hard to digest. Also, I don’t think you should digest stuff like that.

Lena Horne – when she walked onstage, she really was Erzulie.

My mother saw her mother… her father walked out when they were very young and it was a lot of, I’d say more verbal abuse than physical, but it was the same.

When I first moved here, I almost felt like I was obligated to hate L.A. as a New Yorker. I moved way too fast for this city. I walked everywhere, and I was lonely, too. It was a really hard time not knowing anybody, and you don’t run into people the way you do in New York. You can go a week without seeing anyone.
The only way physical comedy works is if you don’t see it coming. And the harder the fall, the funnier it is. You have to really take some shots, and I’ve walked away with some bumps and bruises.
St. Michaels Mount is a favourite place of mine; people will walk across to the Mount all day and assume they will be able to walk home. The spectacle of hundreds of people realising that the path they walked over on is disappearing under several feet of water is very amusing.
I’m often asked how I write books, but I don’t think my approach is suitable for everyone. If I walked into a creative writing class, all I could say to them was ‘I tend to make it up as I go along.’ I’m not sure that’s brilliant advice.
I’ve never really taken more than four days off, so it was a lot for me to go away for three-and-a-half months. I went all over Europe. I walked on a whole bunch of beaches and I did a lot of thinking.

Magic and new technology have always walked hand in hand – even back in the days of Robert Houdin.
Emmitt Till had walked into a cultural narrative in which his role was already tragically written. It was a narrative designed to preserve white supremacy. So it gave power – the right to kill – to any white claiming to defend the honor of white women.
I walked on eggshells a lot. I have a bad self-esteem problem, and my father probably facilitated it. He once looked at me very seriously when I was about 15 and had whipped cream smeared all over myself. He said, ‘You’d do anything for a laugh, wouldn’t you?’
NASA’s Office of Commercial Exploration has been concerned about protecting the landing zones where humans first walked on the Moon, and one of my colleagues, ecologist Margaret Race, has been part of their deliberations.
When I first walked in to London, I was so overwhelmed by the village, the sheer volume of people. I was just so excited. You don’t know what to expect.

The Administration should never have walked away from the Kyoto Treaty. Global warming is real and it is here today. The facts aren’t the issue. The policy is the issue. I think the Administration’s policy on global warming is dead wrong.
And I have been able to give freedom and life which was acknowledged in the ecstasy of walking hand in hand across the most beautiful bridge of the world, the cables enclosing us and pulling us upward in such a dance as I have never walked and never can walk with another.

People inspire me. Every day, I meet amazing individuals in the field.

The river Trent is lovely, I know because I have walked on it for 18 years.

As prime minister, I was the Israeli leader who walked the greatest distance in his offers to the Palestinians.

We all came to see that site. We all walked around it. It is already sacred.
I was with a famous comedian when a young fan walked up and asked for an autograph. The comedian blew him off. I’ll never forget the look on the young boy’s face. He was devastated.
When I walked into the studio, the chorus of ‘Nobody Love’ was already set. For me, the challenge was to make it have depth.

I don’t like doing things without understanding the meaning. Once I walked out of a film event as I could not stand the insult they meted out to a Sanskrit verse.
And you know what – and I don’t mean this in tongue in cheek way – but it’s like deja vu. When I walked in to WCW they were producing wrestling on a little teeny sound stage at Disney, okay? I’m walking into TNA and they’re producing wrestling in a little teeny sound stage at Universal.
In Brazil, I walked around with a lot of security. Fans were threatening to fight me.
I don’t save people. God saves people. I can point them in the right direction. I can say, ‘There’s that door. I think if you walked through it, you’d be happier than you are.’

I don’t think nobody should compare me to anyone, ’cause, at the end of the day, you’ve got a ‘Pac, you’ve got Snoop, you got Tip, you got Wayne – there’s only one Jeezy, man. Ain’t nobody walked in these shoes but me.
It’s always the case, whenever you’re doing someone real, how much you want to do an impression or a characterisation. If I was doing Churchill, or Gandhi – people know exactly how they talked, walked.
My first job, actually, was a Chicago Bulls commercial. I was a ninja. I walked with a limp for a week afterward and got paid 500 dollars 6 months later. Thanks, guys.

I had a second-degree-blue-belt test, and I broke two boards with my right foot, and the next day I walked into school, and no one ever picked on me again. I suddenly believed in myself and respected myself. I had some inkling of my power, so the bullying stopped instantly.
One day when I was 14 I put together a makeshift CV and walked into this weird boutique in Pinner, near where I lived, to ask if they needed a Saturday assistant. They didn’t, but the owner took me on anyway.
I’ve seen some terrible plays, but I generally enjoy myself. One play I walked out of, I have a tremendous respect for the author. That was Robert Wilson, something called ‘Network,’ which consisted of Wilson sitting on a bunk, the dialogue of the movie ‘Network’ looped in while a chair on a rope went up and down.
There were no clippings of Ambedkar. The only thing I had was a two-and-a-half minute film which I saw countless times. Nobody knows how he walked, how he spoke, or how he behaved. I had to conceive all those things in my mind. I had to work a lot on the make-up, too.
My first shift in broadcasting was 2-11 A.M., doing lots of grunt work and running the TelePrompTer for the morning anchors. Luckily, I fell in love the minute I walked into the newsroom, and I’ve never gotten over that.

When I was a kid, we got up, we walked a number of paces to a television, turned it on, and changed channels.
I realized how far-reaching the effect of hip hop was when I walked by a jewelry store named Bling in a small, rural town in France. Hip hop has made a huge impact on urban culture. Yet many brands still don’t speak to young people in a tone and manner that’s representative of them.
I didn’t have a career plan. But what I did was, whenever there was a door open and a new opportunity, I always looked into it and took a chance and walked through the door.
At first, Hendrix went and became a superstar in London, but if he walked past the Apollo in Harlem, no one would know who he was. I’m the hip-hop version of him.

In Manchester a girl pulled a lock of my hair out once. She hugged me and then tugged my head and just walked away hugging it.

I can’t say I’m not guilty of age discrimination when it comes to animals. Like most people I’ve walked into a shelter more than a few times and a magnetic force has pulled me toward those fluffy little puppies in the corner cage.
I said after 2006 that Republicans didn’t just lose our majority, we lost our way. I mean, our party walked away from the principles that men in our national governing majority first in 1980 and again in 1994, and the American people walked away from us.
I remember being in India one time where I saw people who were struggling to find food at the bottom of a trash can, and then I walked into my hotel and saw people arguing over how the quality of food at the buffet wasn’t good enough.
Once, while exploring Seville Cathedral, I walked into a metal bar and gashed my head.
You have to prepare to quit, and this is what I did. I prepared to quit, so on the day that came when I had to walk away from the game, I walked away and didn’t look back.
You know, I can’t remember the last movie I walked out of. If I pay, I’ll see it through. I can’t be halfway through a movie and think that I know everything that’s going to happen, because I hope that I’m wrong.
I never walked the streets of New York hoping to be a musical comedy star. For one thing, they would have thought I was too tall, because l was five feet eight and a half, and they were all little bitty things running around in the studio at that time.
For someone like me who, as a kid, walked to school muttering little political speeches to myself, it was irresistible to finally get a chance at political life for real. When the people of Etobicoke-Lakeshore elected me their MP, it changed me forever.
I did organize something in high school like a school walkout. These kids were locked up in their school, they weren’t allowed out, but 3,000 school kids from Sydney walked out and protested. And I organized it from my mom’s office at work. And I was 12.
They gave me the chaps and hat and everything. I looked like a real cowboy. I walked around the rodeo and thought, I am a real cowboy and thought everyone thought I was a real cowboy.

My mom saw me do my first pull-up my freshman year, and she’s emotional, and she started crying. She walked out, and I thought, ‘You’ve got to let her be sometimes.’ She does that.
Someone had told me about a house in Wandsworth, southwest London – 21 Blenkarne Road – with an incredible garden, so I went and had a look. I walked in and just said, ‘I want it.’
I can remember standing in the middle of the field after the race and seeing the American flag raised and hearing ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ and all the people singing it. Then I walked off the field and just kind of enjoyed the feeling.
I walked on a high wire at Battersea power station for Comic Relief in 2011. It was the scariest but the most exciting moment. I hated being on it but as soon as I stepped off I was desperate to get back on and do it again!
For me, having walked through Times Square so many times as a broke and starving artist, as a TV star, and now having other hopes and dreams, it just represents possibility and the moment of full circle.
I mean, my dad, is really the biggest leadership influence in my life and I believe Jesus was the greatest leaders that ever lived and I think He had the most impact on humanity of anybody who ever walked the planet.
I first became aware of the delights of the natural world when my father, an entomologist, presented me with what looked like a twig. When it got up and walked, my delight was such that I wrote a poem, ‘To a Walking Stick.’
I’d love a training camp. But if they walked in the door right now and said, ‘Do you want to fight for the title in the next 10 minutes?’ I’m out the door, warming up, ready to go.
When I got to WWE developmental, that pedigree did not help you at all. It was against you. You were an enemy of the state when you walked in, when you had an independent background.
Eventually the bad stuff I’m writing turns into better stuff. Other times, I’ve just walked away from what I was working on, and figured I’d have a better perspective when I came back to it.
I don’t hate Charles. I just want my life to count for something. Everyone thinks I just walked out on a paralyzed man. But after he had his stroke, he couldn’t hang on to me. And I realized for the first time that I was at peace.
One would marvel on the screen the way Shammi Kapoor walked, Dilip Kumar cried, or seeing Dev Anand’s style. And then, one day, you are in the same space with them. It’s very unreal.
Now, I’m the most impatient person that ever walked the planet. However: for the best, you always wait.
I grew up in a great neighborhood, and I remember that you just walked out the front door, and you had a ton of friends to hang out and play with.
Kennedy had been assassinated a month or so before. So we walked to the grave of John Kennedy and ended our walking symbolically at the Arlington National Cemetery.
None of the kids in the neighborhood had dogs. My dad walked in that Labrador, and we started running together and rolling around together like we found each other after years apart. And then, suddenly, some of the other people in the neighborhood started getting dogs, too.
People like Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Marlene Dietrich and Sammy Davis Jr. all walked me down this path of entertainment.

When I walked outside of my room for the first time since being placed into self-isolation for breaking the Covid-19 protocols, I heard the cameras clicking with every single step I took. The whole spectacle made me feel uneasy.
I just idolise Nigel Benn, the things he said, how ferocious he was, how intimidating he was – I just loved watching him. As I do the old Mike Tyson, the ’89 Mike Tyson. The Tyson who walked to the ring with a white towel on and looked ferocious. He frightened me just watching him.
Not to name drop, but I’m kind of best friends with Yanni. We barbecue together, we’ve walked on beaches together – it’s kind of a thing.
I wanted to cut past the polemics and experience London’s Muslim communities for myself. My first visit was to Tower Hamlets, an East London borough that is about 38% Muslim, among the highest in the U.K. As I walked down Whitechapel Road, the adhan, or call to prayer, echoed through the neighborhood.
Could I have walked out then? If I had, Terry wouldn’t have accepted the job.
The summer before I started college, my parents walked everywhere instead of taking the bus. Once a week, they would hand over $10 to the university housing office, a deposit so I could move into the dorms in the fall.
Morocco is completely alive for me because I spent about a third of my life there. The first few times I went back to Casablanca, I walked through the streets and remembered how years earlier I had walked those same streets and prayed that a miracle would happen and I would leave and become famous.
I didn’t realize how much the paint was going to affect how I moved and how I walked. And it wasn’t something that consciously happened. It was because the first time I’d done it was a Tokyo Dome show, I want to say in 2013-14, and I walked out there, and I was a completely different person.
He’s so ugly. When you walked by him, your pants wrinkle. He made fly balls curve foul.
For every man that ever walked the Earth, except maybe the sociopaths, when it comes to talking to pretty girls… it’s just stark terror.
The Christ path is the path I’ve walked all my life, so it’s normal and natural. And I have no reason to abandon it because it leads to where I want to go.

I’ve been a top guy since I walked in – since I beat John Cena in my first match.
I was a library rat and a bookworm. I read all the time. I walked to school reading books. I read under my desk.
I get up when I feel like getting up. That’s the deal I’ve made with myself: I can stay in bed as long as my dog’s bladder holds. The other half of that deal is that once the dog is walked, the very next thing I do is write. It’s mechanical. It’s programming, very nearly brainwashing.
When I first started wearing wigs, I didn’t know you had to anchor them down with bobby pins. I walked out during a windy day and my wig blew off and got stuck to a branch. I was walking while my wig was hanging! If that’s not the most embarrassing thing… but you have to use bobby pins.
If you’ve ever walked a mile into a virgin forest – you know, like a deep forest where trees have been uncut – the energy is totally different from the shopping mall.
Electric Gypsy’ was really raw. I was literally sketching out the lyrics as they walked in the door. I jumped up and had a sheet of paper and I showed them the chords, which are simple. We counted it off, I got the lyrics off the sheet into the song and played a solo at the end – done!
When I walked down the ramp and stood in the ring, I made other big guys look small.

When ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’ was a new album in 1973, a friend of mine walked into my room where I was working with a copy in his hand and said, ‘You really have to do a play about this album.’

I wanted to be a theater actress, but I thought it would be easier to get to New York and the theater if I had a name than if I just walked the streets as a little girl from California.
My experience on ‘The West Wing’ was, I think, now rare in that I was pretty young, and I walked into this environment where Aaron Sorkin was giving me a script every week, and Thomas Schlamme and John Wells were keeping the studio off my back, at least as best as they could.
Being a Witness was too closed an experience. That’s what I walked away from, not the things I believe.
A lot of things have happened that I wish I could have just walked away from. But you wind up saying, ‘This is what it is – how does it get better, or how does it affect you, or how can you influence it in a positive way?’
The problem I see with most contests is that the people judging have never competed in a bodybuilding contest. I feel that to have the knowledge necessary to judge a bodybuilding competition, you must have walked in those shoes.
I went on an audition. I walked in the room, and it was Leslie Mann with Judd Apatow. It was intimidating.
There’s a staircase on the first floor of the Capitol that I walk every day. It’s made of marble, and as you walk those steps, you think of those who’ve walked before you. You think of the challenges that the country’s faced.
For me, I have never walked a path that has been carefully crafted or charted. I have gone into territory unknown on many an occasion.
For a really long time in my life, I fought against how I look. Because I was raised Catholic in school, where everyone had to wear a suit and tie. I hated everything that stood for. And I realized when I walked down the street, everyone would see the guy I hated and not the guy I was.
I walked the streets of New York; I would feel the presence of Daredevil. I would see him up on the rooftop. What you are doing in your life, you start to see in your book. It all starts to merge together.
Here I am at the turn of the millennium and I’m still the last man to have walked on the moon, somewhat disappointing. It says more about what we have not done than about what we have done.
Unless someone has walked in your shoes, you really can’t judge. Everyone needs to make the best choice for their life.
One thing about me, I think, over the years I’ve walked onto the court earlier than I was supposed to and it kind of lingered into something else.
I’ve walked out in front of Madison Square Garden to 20,000 people, which is amazing, as I can remember working in the O2 arena in Dublin as security for wrestling events.
Have you ever walked along a shoreline, only to have your footprints washed away? That’s what Alzheimer’s is like. The waves erase the marks we leave behind, all the sand castles. Some days are better than others.
In October 2014, for the first time in almost three-quarters of a century, a gray wolf was seen loping along the forested North Rim of the Grand Canyon, in Arizona. She had walked hundreds of miles, probably from Wyoming or Idaho.

If I had doubts, I would’ve never walked into the ring.
If the audience doesn’t like it, usually they’re just silent. But they’ve never all walked out at once.

I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me.
You know the actor John Garfield? In one movie he walked up to this train station, the ticket booth, and the guy says, ‘Yes, where are you going?’ And he says, ‘I want a ticket to nowhere.’ I thought: that’s it. The freedom to do that. I want a ticket to nowhere.
I didn’t really have intentions of fighting in MMA; it just kind of fell into place. Once I started fighting, though, I loved it, and I walked away from kickboxing right away.
One hot summer night in San Francisco, roughly 10 years ago, I was sitting in a crowded Pacific Heights restaurant when Alice Adams walked in with a man. She was about 60 at the time, and she was wearing a skirt that fell an inch or so above her knees and flat heels without stockings.
I would have gone to law school, or gotten a psychology degree. I wasn’t interested in sleeping on a futon forever. And what happened is I walked into auditions, and I had nothing to lose, because I had a backup plan.
When an executive walked on our floor, it was at their own risk. As far as what others thought of working for me, I know I was very tough at times, and would storm down the hall after watching some bad animation from Korea. But overall, I feel we had a good time.
The woods that I loved as a child are entirely gone. The woods that I loved as a young adult are gone. The woods that most recently I walked in are not gone, but they’re full of bicycle trails.
If I had walked into a dry cleaning store, and I had looked over, and the register drawer was open with money inside, I wouldn’t have taken it.
I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.’
For me, comedy is constantly presented as this fake casualness, like a guy just walked on stage going, ‘This crazy thing happened to me the other day.’ And he’s in front of 3000 people, and he’s acting like an everyman, and he’s getting paid so much money.
In that first blow to the deaf walls of those who have everything, the blood of our people, our blood, ran generously to wash away injustice. To live, we die. Our dead once again walked the way of truth. Our hope was fertilized with mud and blood.
While researching ‘Horse Soldiers,’ I conducted over 100 interviews in the U.S. and in Afghanistan, and in Afghanistan, I walked and studied key sites that appear in the book. I was able to capture not only the Americans’ point of view but the Afghans’ as well.
I’m totally an empath, and I’m so susceptive to being walked on and being taken for granted.
My father died during open-heart surgery on March 29 of my senior year in college. I was getting set to go to law school. I remember sitting in the waiting room when the doctor walked in. I said to myself, The worst possible thing just happened. What will you do?
People like Jefferson, Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony and M. L. K. are larger than life to me. I find myself staring at photographs of Lincoln almost in disbelief that he was a man who walked the earth and not merely some fiction writer’s creation.
After I had done the first ‘Pirates’ movie and ‘Secret Window,’ I went on vacation to escape with my kiddies and my girl, and someone said that there was an island down the road for sale. I said, ‘Oh well, let’s go see it.’ I looked at it, I walked on it, and I was done. It had to be.
I have always put my own money into Tails of Joy. For years, every time a dog walked by, my husband would say, ‘There goes our beach house.’
Video game voicing is absolutely different from cartoon work. In cartoons, you’re almost always there with the entire cast, and the entire script is acted out in sequence. With video games, it’s you by yourself, in a room with a script you just got when you walked in.
When I was three years old, a nanny took me shopping and I saw large cut-outs of Mary Poppins in the store and yelled, ‘That’s mummy!’ These women walked by and said, ‘Oh how cute. That little girl thinks that Mary Poppins is her mum.’
I’ve run for office, and I’ve stood on street corners, while people walked by me and didn’t want to talk to me, and did not think I was a credible candidate. And then four years later, I was nearly elected mayor of San Francisco, so I know what it takes.

My dad was a very violent, frightening and dangerous guy. Next to him, I was this vague kind of kid who walked around, as I still do, gathering impressions.
My husband says, ‘What Joan walk? You’ve always walked that way!’
I think the audience doesn’t know a movie’s lit, but they feel it. Because you’ve walked in a forest many times, or in a park, so you know how it looks. When you start lighting, subconsciously you know there is something that is absolutely wrong.
I felt different from everyone else – like an alien. The looks I received when I was 320 pounds were ones usually reserved for three-eyed monsters, half-man half-woman reptiles, creatures with hideous rolls of skin that sweated profusely and jiggled when they walked. That last one really was me.
I’ve walked on hot coals with Tony Robbins.
Not trying to be arrogant, but if I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?
There are a lot of times when I walk into a room and forget why I walked in there. I’m going through some studies right now, and I am going to do a brain scan.
I come from a very big family from every economic background. Some of the streets I talk about, I’ve actually walked on because I have family from there. Jamaica has so many contradictions.

Well, I was quite young when we first walked on the moon; I had just turned four, but I did watch it on TV. I think that just set the seed right then that that would be a really interesting thing to do.
I was once doing a gig with Tim Vine; he was backstage, and there was one of those long strings of polystyrene coffee cups. He picked up the whole stack of about 20, walked on stage and then said: ‘Bloody hell this coffee’s hot!’ which I think is the funniest thing anyone has ever said.
Auditioning is the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done. There must have been four or five of them where I completely froze up and walked out of the room. My palms get sweaty just thinking about it.
I longed from a tiny child to get away on my own. When I was five, I walked out along the sands from Redcar, nearly all the way to Hartlepool.
The fact that we walked away from the Middle East, as distasteful as it was for us to stay involved and prevent wars, based on our long involvement there, we have helped to create and provide a foundation. Obviously for ISIS and also for the absolute barbarianism and human catastrophe that Assad impacted on his people.
When I lived in a little flat in Pimlico in 1981, I’d write in the hallway. As you walked in, there was a tiny little recess type thing, hardly a hallway, really, and I’d sit there writing songs with my guitar.
The first day of ‘Liberty,’ I was hanging around waiting for Ford to come in. Everybody told me how tough he was and not to say anything, or he’d single you out and get on you the whole shoot. But as he walked in, I got up and saluted him.
It was very much like Norman Rockwell: small town America. We walked to school or rode our bikes, stopped at the penny candy store on the way home from school, skated on the pond.
My mother told me one day I walked in to her and said, ‘Mom, I’m not going to be sick anymore,’ and she said ‘Why?’ and I said ‘Because an angel told me so.’ Now, I don’t remember saying it; that’s just what she told me.
I was impressed by Hendrix. His attitude was brilliant. Even the way he walked was amazing.
One time, my ex-boyfriend and I were in Paris, and we went to this really fancy dinner. We weren’t full after, so we walked from the schmoozy restaurant to McDonald’s, and we finished our date at McDonald’s. It was awesome.
My father never really encouraged me or even took an interest after I walked away from the family business. No one did except my mother and my grandfather. To be truthful, I cannot remember one meaningful conversation I had with my father.
I was three years old, and I walked onstage during a performance that my father was a tenor in ‘The Barber of Seville.’ I walked out onstage, and people started laughing and clapping, and that was it. That was all it took. Laughing and clapping, I still enjoy today.
I think it’s kind of silly, actually… I’ve been coached by men the majority of my career. It hasn’t ever been an issue. They have never walked in on us. So I don’t – I think it’s a nonissue when you really reverse the conversation.
Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther King could walk. Martin Luther King walked so Obama could run. Obama’s running so we all can fly.
Of course I was in love with my father as a child. He was Daddy, and our house came alive in a special way whenever he walked through the door. He’d romp and play with us; my sisters and I would literally squeal with excitement when Daddy came home.
I had an enormous responsibility not just to survive but to become a good man because I had all of my family’s hopes on my shoulders because they walked around outside without the shield that I carried knowing I hadn’t done anything.
There is something about New York City that in and of itself is so theatrical hat I use to think… I use to feel when I walked out of my apartment on the way to school or anywhere that I was walking out on stage.
We cannot continually barricade ourselves under some falsified idea of race, because our idea of blackness and race is simply reactionary. Africans didn’t walk around Africa being black and proud, they walked around proud.
I don’t think there are any footsteps to be walked in. No one else has taken things that you can buy at the grocery store and put them together. I hope that I have a career as long as Julia Child.

With slight risk of exaggeration you could say that he walked almost every mile of the Indian land.

Having walked on the Moon, I know something about what we need to explore, really explore, in space.
I am not a known face and a lot of people wouldn’t recognise me if I walked into a room. But that’s okay with me. I want people to recognize me through my work.
I was, like, forty at birth. When I wasn’t even a year old, I spoke, I was potty trained, I walked and talked. That was it. Then I started school and drove everybody crazy because they realized I had popped out as an adult. I had adult questions and wanted adult answers.
When I was at ‘Newsweek’ magazine – which, you know, this really sounds like I walked four miles in the snow to school – but I started at ‘Newsweek’ magazine in 1963, which was before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. So it was actually legal to discriminate against women, and ‘Newsweek’ did.
The first time I walked onto the set of Neverland, it was like walking into another world. They built the sets extra strong, so we were allowed to play on them when we weren’t filming. It was cool!
When I first came to the House of Commons and walked out into the lobby, men sprang to their feet. I asked them to sit down since I’d come to walk around. I didn’t want them doing me favours.
This was Shakespeare’s form; who walked in every path of human life, felt every passion; and to all mankind doth now, will ever, that experience yield which his own genius only could acquire.
If what you do is being threatened as a profession, that could be scary. But that’s the same reason why I walked out on stage many times after receiving death threats. I couldn’t live without doing what I wanted to do. So at the same time I have to be willing to die for it.
I walked onstage in a play at prep school, and with childish naivete, told myself, ‘Wow, I’m an actor!’
Black Sabbath was written on bass: I just walked into the studio and went, bah, bah, bah, and everybody joined in and we just did it.

The Democratic party, respective to health care, is like a person who was sent into the store to purchase a gallon of milk and some butter for the evening’s meal and instead walked out with a ‘Gladiator’ DVD, a can of Easy Cheese, and some Homer Simpson house slippers because how funny are they?
My son walked up to Nicole on the beach and I was throwing the ball for the dogs in the ocean. I was like, ‘Max, you get the dogs. I’ll talk to the hot blondes.’
The English have a special sense of humour. This I immediately experienced in the dressing room. As I walked with two plates while eating, suddenly a team-mate asked me, ‘Basti, what time is it?’ hoping I would automatically turn my hand to look at my watch. That’s quite entertaining.
Sinatra had a lot of mood swings, but he was wonderful to my wife Barbara and to me. He made no bones about who he liked and who he loved, and he had this great charisma. When he walked into a room, it stopped. I’ve only seen that happen with Ronald Reagan.
I walked into the gym not even knowing what jiu-jitsu or MMA and all that was. I was looking to lose baby weight after I had my son.
The biggest misconception about me is that people seem to think that I want it all and that I had it all, and I walked away from having it all. That was never part of it. I never wanted it all.

Only once in a thousand years or so do we get to hear a Mozart or see a Picasso or read a Shakespeare. Ali was one of them, and yet at his heart, he was still a kid from Louisville who ran with the gods and walked with the crippled and smiled at the foolishness of it all.
Have you walked around in heels? That’s a workout. But like all good gay men, I have a gym membership.
The last thing I’m gonna do is, ‘This is dynamite!’ That’s not my gig, man. I love the mom-and-pop joints. I love giving them recognition, but I’m not gonna blow smoke. We walked out of locations; we’ve changed locations.
I was shocked by the amount of Welsh people in L.A. We’d go to this British pub to watch the ‘Six Nations’ early in the morning and I remember the first time I walked in it was just a sea of red.
I was in awe every time I walked on to the field.
I walked into the wrong examination room. I’m bad enough at facial recognition… I saw more that day than I cared to. Fortunately, I didn’t recognize her from that angle, whoever it was, and I didn’t ask. I’m off to a rocky start on the road to fatherhood, but I got a free view.
Head Start has a proven track-record of success in Central Virginia, and millions of Americans have walked through its doors and benefited from the foundation it provides.
You can’t walk alone. Many have given the illusion, but none have really walked alone. Man is not made that way. Each man is bedded in his people, their history, their culture, and their values.
I’d never walked on snow ’til I was 50, you know. There’s no snow where I come from.
As far as anybody in the rap game ever tryin’ to assassinate my character, that’s impossible. You talkin’ about a man who has always walked the walk and talked the talk.
There have been situations where I have lost movies because I’ve said, ‘This is not a fair deal,’ and I’ve walked away.
I remember the first time I met Hulk Hogan was at a hotel somewhere in Cleveland. My bags were really heavy and he walked over and helped me. He even knew my name, so that was a big thrill for me.

I received the most fantastic welcome to the Broadway Theatre community. I walked on stage to tremendous applause and a long standing ovation, wondering when I was ever going to be able to say my first line!
When someone gets sick, it is easy to get walked all over, walk all over people, and be so beat down you agree to things you would never normally agree to.
I’m glad that I walked into my purpose. I’m glad that I walked into something that was a smooth transition from football.
I am proud of where I came from, and I am proud of what I’ve been able to achieve through hard work and perseverance. And I guarantee you that anyone who tries to say otherwise hasn’t walked a day in my shoes.
I know people who’ve had a nose job, and they’ve walked out feeling a million dollars, and their confidence is tenfold. Good on them! Natural beauty comes in all different shapes and sizes, but if you think surgery would right something you have a problem with, then why shouldn’t you do it?
‘The Hangover’ was, like, solid. I laughed a bit, you know. Seven out of 10, maybe. But I made it 32 minutes into ‘Hangover 2’ before I walked out.
I remember when I was young, there was an older boy who was physically and mentally disabled. He had a speech impediment and walked with difficulty. The boys used to make fun of him. They teased and taunted him until sometimes he would cry.
I remember going down the tunnel into the Olympic Stadium and getting a glimpse of all the people and hearing all the noise, all the people shouting for us. I’d seen Usain Bolt on the warm-up track, and then, as I walked into the stadium, I sort of realised how big it was!
My father walked out on us when I was three months old, and my mum, well, she wasn’t the driven sort.
Much before I entered films, my dad walked into my room and saw me busy drawing something at 3 A.M. He stood there for some time and said, ‘Whatever career choice you make, you are going to be successful.’ I’ll never forget those words. It gave me the confidence to be who I am today.
I had never heard of Meghan before. I was beautifully surprised when I walked into that room and saw her, and there she was, sitting there. I thought, ‘I am really going to have to up my game here, sit down, and make sure I’ve got a good chat.’
I walked out of a restaurant with my sister Sana and the next day it was all over the media, ‘Sooraj seen with a mystery girl’. That mystery girl was my sister. It’s not fair. They should have some protocol.
First time I walked out on the Opry stage, Vince Gill was there. He kind of ‘daddied’ me through the whole thing. My knees were knocking. I walked out there, and I was literally shaking. They say it’s the spirits or the ghosts. And out of respect for that whole establishment, I was really really nervous.
When I spent time with my father, it wasn’t playing ball in the back yard. I came to his office and listened to him do business or sat in on meetings. I walked job sites. On Saturday, we’d see my grandfather in Queens for a couple hours, and then he’d say, ‘Let’s go collect rent!’
I’ve never walked through the curtain with someone I wasn’t trying to audition as a WrestleMania main-eventer, and I never want to.
A completely disrespectful photographer was asked to stop taking photographs, and then said, ‘I’ve got what I want. What are you going to do about it?’ How would you feel if somebody walked up and started taking your photograph? I don’t think you’d be very happy.
Most of ‘Let the Great World Spin’ is centered on the day in 1974 when Philippe Petit walked on a tightrope between the two towers of the World Trade Center, creating an astonishing spectacle that intersects with the lives of many of the novel’s multiple protagonists.
Fifteen years ago I walked out of a production of one of my plays at the RSC because I decided it was a waste of time.

I always knew from that moment, from the time I found myself at home in that little segregated library in the South, all the way up until I walked up the steps of the New York City library, I always felt, in any town, if I can get to a library, I’ll be OK. It really helped me as a child, and that never left me.
My grandmother introduced me to B.B. King. She wasn’t someone who had a lot of posters, but there was a big poster of B.B. King on the wall as soon as you walked into her house in Meridian, Mississippi.
I’ve been a fan of The Rock ever since he first came to wrestling. Every time I went to school, I talked about The Rock. So when I finally got to meet him I couldn’t believe it! When he walked through the door, I went bug-eyed! ‘I’m standing next to The Rock, man!’ He’s huge. He’s very nice, though.
Nothing beat that welcoming smell of fried food wafting into the hallway from the kitchen as I walked in from school as a kid.
I actually met The Game in my hood on Crenshaw and Slauson. I was outside on the block with 20 of my homies. I see the Range Rover, and we all walked up to his car. I handed him my CD.

When I was a kid, I wanted to walk with my dad’s limp – my dad was my hero – but that infuriated him, and he would make me walk back and forth in the living room until I walked without it.
Once the U.S. and NATO walked away from Libya, a chaotic, lawless state in the soft underbelly of Europe arose.
Of course, I should have done what doctors said and walked for miles every day and not eaten great amounts of butter. But then, life is life, and if we all did what they said we should do, it would be a different world.
I walked into Relativity Records as a musician who could not be taken advantage of. That’s why I wound up owning all my own publishing and making a deal that was quite advantageous for a new solo artist. But I really didn’t think of myself as an entrepreneur.

I was feeling real good and real manly. Until a real cowboy walked by and told me I had my hat on backwards. So much for my career as a cowboy.
Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon intimidated us all because she walked in and was going to be the dance captain. She was a great star, but she loved that kind of work as his assistant.

Nan Kempner wore one of the first Saint Laurent trouser suits to one of those fancy Madison Avenue restaurants and was denied access. She famously took off her pants and walked in wearing only the jacket. And it was that kind of revolution that was echoed in fashion and in life.
Actually, it wasn’t on a set but we were on a shooting floor, we were doing the look test for ‘The Sky Is Pink.’ I walked on set and I saw Priyanka Chopra and I was like, ‘What just happened?’ Yeah, that was the first time I was smitten by all that she is and more.
I played Sky Masterson in ‘Guys and Dolls’ at St. Ignatius. I walked out onstage at one point looking for Nathan Detroit, and I’m supposed to say, ‘Has anyone seen Nathan Detroit?’ But, instead, I said, ‘Has anyone seen Sky Masterson?’ I immediately realized what I’d done, so I said, ‘Wait a minute. I’m Sky Masterson!’
In kickboxing, if I walked around at 185 pounds, I fought at 185 pounds.

When I moved to Tampa, Florida I remember going to a Kid Rock concert and I was in one of those sky-boxes. When I walked into the sky-box I didn’t know he was there, but I hear a, ‘Hi, brother!’ I turn around and it’s Hulk Hogan. I just got ‘brothered!’
It’s pretty easy to make a film in China. A few years ago I just walked into the office and let them know I wanted to make a movie called ‘Red Cliff’ and they were so excited. They said, ‘Let’s do it!’ It’s that simple.
The first thing we ever filmed was, we had to eat off people’s plates, like we just walked over and took something. We thought we would get punched.

I began to pay attention to Scripture and meet people who walked the walk, and little by little, I guess you could call me a born again Christian. 1978 is when I found my walk with the Lord.
I was training in Gleason’s Gym on 30th and 8th Avenue, where it was the Mecca of boxing, and a guy walked in who couldn’t rub two quarters together and said, ‘Did you ever think of being on TV?’ And somehow I ended up in ‘Taxi,’ which is the craziest thing of all.

There’s a design book I got years ago that had a statue of a dog with a bunch of hats on it, and I just obsessively fell in love with it. For years I searched for that dog. One day I walked into an antique shop in La Jolla and I found a white dog that I could put hats on!
I fell down in Hyde Park with a friend who’d had a hip operation, and neither of us could get up again. People must have thought we were a couple of drunks rolling around and walked on by.
I like to make people think differently than they did before I walked in the room.
Deep Purple was sinking with Ritchie. We were playing to quarter houses in Europe, which is one of our strongest territories – in Germany. Smaller venues, and they weren’t even full. So had we continued that way, and had Ritchie not walked out, we would have finished; that would have been the end of it.
When you open up Pinterest, you should feel like you’ve walked into a building full of stuff that only you are interested in. Everything should feel handpicked for you.
I sort of felt like the runt of the litter. My brother was just great. If you gave him a cricket bat he’d score 100. If he walked into a party he’d pull the best-looking girl. He was my hero.
I regretted the solitary nature of the writer’s life – other people, normal working people, spent their days with co-workers, rode the subway home with a crowd, walked through thronged streets. I worked at home, all by myself.

I only worked on Men of Honor for three weeks, but I walked away with so much. Because Bob is the kind of actor who gives you the opportunity to really go there. And we really had to go there. I mean, we were both playing drunks.
As mayor, I got used to the fact that when you walked out of the house in the morning to pick up the newspaper in your boxers, there could be a camera there.

John Cena actually showed up to do a song with Snoop in L.A. and he walked in and was like, ‘What the hell are you doing here?’ I was like, ‘You didn’t know? I got let go. I’m back bodyguarding now. He was like, ‘What? That’s crazy!’ I was like, ‘It’s all good. Good to see you. Appreciate it.’
From the moment I walked into the White House, it was as if I had no privacy at all.
But I still feel like a normal person… I’ve walked the streets and I know what it feels like. I speak with humility, and apparently those songs connect with people.
I was miserable in West Side Story. They really miscast me. I came from the Midwest; what they really needed was a guy that was street smart. The first time I saw the movie, I had to walk out. I looked like the biggest fruit that ever walked on to film. My character was so weak.
This is how I started playing: I was playing hooky one day, and the coach and the principal walked up behind me. They scared me, and I ran, and they noticed I could run really fast. They wanted me to come out for the football team.

The first time Stuart Broad walked into the dressing room, with his flowing blond hair, striking blue eyes and perfect figure, I thought: ‘My God, she’s beautiful.’
The Huffingtonpost.com does not pay its writers. Tina Brown’s thedailybeast.com does pay its writers. You have to be paid because this is not a hobby. You have to keep that standard. You can’t ask grandpa to loan you money because you have to go to Afghanistan. I walked the picket line for that to continue.
For a long time, I really blithely walked around in the world imagining that gender didn’t matter any more and behaving like I was on equal footing with other people. And I think, for a long time, it was easy to live in the world that way.
I moved to New York on October 21, 2004, and it was the day that the Chelsea Grill, a restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen on 9th Avenue between 46th and 47th Street, opened. I had never waited a table in my life, but I walked in and lied to the manager in a very J. Pierrepont Finch way.
Theses officers were good friends, so it must have been a terrible argument, because the one who played chess with my father was so angry that he walked over to the dentist’s house and got the dentist out of bed and shot him.
I always said to myself when I walked into the arena ‘today they’re going to know how good I am’ and that was the attitude I carried with me every single time and just felt like at the end, you can’t hold talent down. If you have it, eventually it’s going to shine through and you just have to keep pushing.
I was in line at a store and there was a little girl, she was standing in line next to me and some other girls had come up to me and recognized me from ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ When they walked away, this girl was staring at me, and her eyes got so big, and she started crying. It was, like, the cutest thing.
I’ve been brought up to be polite and I’m not very confrontational, but even I have walked away from situations and thought, ‘If only I’d said or done that.’ Well Mr Hyde says and does that.
One of my favorite L.A. movies is ‘Ed Wood,’ and it’s about how Bela Lugosi went from being this movie star personality to living in a little bungalow with his cats in the valley where, if you walked by, you’d have no idea. He’d come out and get his paper, and you’d go, ‘That guy looks familiar.’
There’s only one Mark McGwire. The man walked over 160 times. Just think. If he walks 60 times, he might hit 100 homers.

The atmosphere is so tense, if Elvis walked in, with a portion of chips… you could hear the vinegar sizzle on them.
I respect every guy that has walked away. I think every single guy in this league makes his own decision, and that’s perfectly fine. The reason I respect that and the reason I think every guy has his own way of dealing with things is because, in my personal opinion, I know what I’m getting into.
We had a showing of Battlestar in LA last week. I walked out the door and there were 50 people. I signed a ton of autographs. Other actors walked away without signing. These are the fans. I guess it depends. on who you are.
It was like a classic thing with Emma. So I walked in and I slammed the door and everything fell off the wall on the set. It was my second or third scene and I was so embarrassed and scared and so nervous about what everyone would say, but everyone just packed up laughing.
The United Nations was founded 70 years ago, at the end of World War II. Since that time, Japan has steadfastly walked the path of peace and rebuilt a nation. And, since the mid-1950s onward, we have actively worked to share our experience of development with other nations, especially in Asia.
I didn’t really realize I was a woman director until I walked onto the set at Pinewood Studios when I did ‘Mamma Mia!’ and everybody was calling each other ‘Governor’ and ‘Sir’… and then, looking at me, ‘Well… good morning!’
The last time I was in there to set up for a surgery, I was sitting in the waiting room … watching television. And a special came on the news about a guy who got AIDS from re-used medical equipment in the VA. It was the same procedure I was fixing to get. I’m gone. Deuces. I walked out, man.
Girls’ strength lies in its diversity, and its members have walked in a lot of borrowed shoes to make it that way. ‘Solitude’ is a bold and sweet example of inspiration trumping originality.
When I go to America, I’m fortunate enough to stay in the nicer areas but the last time I went there – to New York last October, November – I went and explored. I went to the rough areas – to Brooklyn, Harlem, the Bronx; I walked around and you see it first-hand, what life is like out there.
It’s extraordinary to think that if you walked into a room and said you had never heard of Hamlet, you would be regarded as a Philistine. But you could walk into the same room and say, ‘I don’t know what a proton is,’ and people would just laugh and say, ‘Why should you know?’
I wish I’d walked out of ‘The Tourist’ with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. I said to the missus after two minutes, ‘He’s her husband.’ An hour and a half’s worth of nonsense later, the big twist at the end is… he’s her husband.
I have walked into several pubs, and guys in there have said to me, ‘My God, you are the girl off the dancing horse.’ They have got no idea about dressage, and they said, ‘I can’t work out whether you make the horse do that or the horse does it itself – we just couldn’t tell – but it brought tears to our eyes.’
Not everything in old age is grim. I haven’t walked through an airport for years, and wheelchairs are the way to travel.

After PyeongChang and after the tours, I was searching for different fulfillment. And then when my fiancee walked into my life, it became clear the direction I wanted to head.

Wherever Mantle went in the great metropolis – Danny’s Hideaway, the Latin Quarter, the ’21’ Club, the Stork Club, El Morocco, Toots Shor’s – his preferred drink was waiting when he walked through the door. Reporters waited at his locker for monosyllabic bons mots. Boys clustered by the players’ gate, hoping to touch him.
We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.
It turned out that those years I was at the Studio were the last years that Mr. Landau was alive and teaching. They were also the last years of some of the greatest teachers that have walked the earth. I got to hear the advice of Charlie Laughton, Mark Rydell, and Penny Allen.

I was in New York and I walked into this pet store and came out with a dog.
I walked out of the show business in 1968 because I thought that would be good for the family. It took me some time to decide but I wanted to spend more time with my wife and two daughters who were always beside me. I wanted to do everything I could for them.

I remember from the very beginning when I walked out at UFC 40, when we had the big lights, the flames, everything. Fans want to see entertainment.
I had some rainy days, I didn’t handle those rainy days. I walked out without an umbrella sometimes. I’m going to be more mentally prepared for my downs, because there are going to be ups and downs.
I walked into a demo session one time, and a guy said, ‘I’m thinking kind of like a Trace Adkins thing.’ And I looked him right in the eye and said, ‘Man, you’ve got the wrong guy. I’m gonna have to fire myself. You’ve got to hire somebody else.’
I was down in Wilmington, Delaware, doing ‘The Desk Set’ with Shirley Booth. I was at the DuPont Hotel. I walked out, and there was this grill next door called the New England Grill. I loved seafood. They said very nicely, ‘We don’t serve colored people.’

When Joan Rivers walked through the curtain on ‘The Tonight Show,’ nobody in my house was allowed to utter a sound. Her gait was full of pep and purpose and her voice unmatched.

Fantasy was something I’d read as a child. And, in fact, my teachers despaired a little bit because I refused to give up Enid Blyton. Then I walked through the wardrobe with C. S. Lewis, and I don’t think I actually have returned fully from the wardrobe. So, fantasy was something that was in my life from quite young.
I got the honor of traveling some with Kerry Von Erich. He was as close to a rock star as I’ve ever seen. He had a presence that when he walked into a room, it was like Elvis walking into the room.

One time, when I was really young, my dad and brother were watching ‘Team America,’ the Trey Parker and Matt Stone movie. I walked in and they didn’t know I was there, but I got really freaked out by the marionettes – just the look of them, their mouths, those grins. That cemented in my brain.
I stopped and gazed on the little dull man who was being paid to be a teacher of teachers. I turned and walked to the door, slammed it closed with a bang, and broken glass crashed to the floor. There was uproar behind me in the class, which did not interest me at all.
I always thought I was going to be a great poet, and go and live in New York, where the great poets lived – you know, where Whitman had walked the streets.

I haven’t watched one second of ‘First Take’ since I walked off that set.
