Dallas is an extraordinary place in it’s own right. The first thing about Dallas that you can’t get away from, particularly when I arrived, you’ve got no idea of the heat in this place.

Irvine Welsh
My idea with ‘4 Degrees’ was to articulate, for a minute, not my ideal vision of how I wanted to perceive my relationship to nature but the reality. If I could give a voice to my behavior, what would that voice be? Taking planes, enjoying first-world fossil fuel, an addict of first-world comfort.
Anohni
I’ve always been used to playing 60 games – one every three days – and I’ve played on artificial turf. There is artificial turf in Europe as well in some places. There is heat as well. And if it’s hot for me at 110 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s hot for the others as well.

Piet Mondrian
The first 600 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, before

The first 600 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, before you get into the Sierra Nevada mountain range, is heavy on desert. One of the things I carry with me in the desert is an umbrella.

My life is just a series of mistakes and regrets of varying degrees.

Neil deGrasse Tyson
I get homesick for snow and for winter and for seasons and, really, for weather patterns. But L.A. has some of the best weather, so who can complain when it’s 80 degrees and sunny?

I often joke with my husband and say to him, ‘You know I have two theatre degrees, right? That’s all I know how to do.’ LOL! He went to Pepperdine Law School, has four degrees, and passed the California Bar first time around, so I always make sure he doesn’t expect too much from me.
Deborah Joy Winans
Women are just much better at getting degrees than men. It seems that school at every level plays to the natural strengths of women more than it does to men.

Mike Portnoy
I did a film once in the Sahara. It was pretty awe-inspiring. I remember sitting up on the roof of our hotel, watching the sun go down, and all around me, for 360 degrees, was nothing but sand. It took your breath away but also made you feel tiny.
Lennie James
L.A. is a constellation of microclimates and microcosms, a library with dozens of special collections. A 20-minute drive can bring a temperature change of 15 degrees. Crossing an intersection can feel like crossing a national border.

Dawn Foster
There is a method in man’s wickedness; it grows up by degrees.
Francis Beaumont

Stuart Appleby
I actually didn’t find too many differences between B-town and the south. The difference lies in the temperature. I was shooting when it was 45 degrees Celsius in Chennai; Mumbai is cooler.

Hill Harper
God will not look you over for medals degrees or diplom

God will not look you over for medals degrees or diplomas, but for scars.
Elbert Hubbard
My teachers used to tell me all the time, ‘One day you’re going to be famous. Make sure you come back; don’t forget about me when you make it.’ People would tell me – like, teachers with their masters’ degrees.

Scott Snyder
This arrogance thing… I’ve had that my whole life. I flip between, ‘Oh really? Oh, thank you. Wow. That’s amazing’ and, ‘Yeah! Of course I am.’ They’re both varying degrees of a self-defence mechanism. It can be from minute to minute that I change.
James Corden
Well, I have an undergraduate degree, a couple of bachelor’s degrees, from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Brian Grazer
What I hear every day on talk radio is America’s lack of education – and I don’t mean lack of college degrees. I mean lack of the basic art of democracy, the ability to seek the great truths that can come only by synthesizing the small truths possessed by each of us.

Jacki Weaver
Some things get written more quickly than others, but I can’t really measure degrees of difficulty.

David Remnick
It was about 105 degrees in Chicago. And that’s a time when everybody gets tired. I came into the clubhouse, and everybody was sitting around, and I said, ‘Beautiful day.

Ernie Banks
We’re going to turn this team around 360 degrees.
Jason Kidd
There are varying degrees of shade. There is funny shade, warning shade, tea shade, and mean girl shade.

Mark McKinnon
We’ve got great potential in our country and the only way we’re going to make sure kids are getting the degrees that they need, make sure we’re getting through that red tape, is by working together.

I was in the business of marketing, and I have two Bachelor’s Degrees in Political Journalism, and I wrote for the school newspaper at the time.
Enzo Amore
Belief is not restricted to a brief affirmation based on imitation; rather, it has degrees and stages of development. It is like a seed growing into a fully grown, fruit-bearing tree; like the sun’s image in a mirror or in a drop of water to its images on the sea’s surface and to the sun itself.
Said Nursi
My greatest platform is not with all my degrees, everything else, it’s not all my books, everything. It’s that I’m known as a man who loves his wife and spends time with his children. That opens more; I speak as a daddy.

There are problems with nursing – such as the issue of nurses all having to do degrees these days. But that doesn’t mean to say the entire infrastructure of nursing is falling about and that it is populated by unfeeling psychopaths, which is, frankly, the implication sometimes.
Jo Brand
A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music’s simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory. It’s different, because I grew up on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges and punk, so in that sense I’m mutating country and folk more than a few degrees.
Stone Gossard
I have a lot of influences. I’m American-schooled. I’m classically trained. I’m a pretty universal student, if you will. I have a lot of degrees, which really don’t pay the rent. I have two doctorate degrees, I have a bachelor’s degree, but I’m still a cook.
Emeril Lagasse
My parents told me that education was the path to success – and they showed me, taking me to Head Start while they were pursuing their own college degrees.

My mother was very wary at first. And now she’s come around 180 degrees. She’s, like, one of my biggest fans now. Like, she’ll come over to my house, and she’ll be like, ‘OK, listen. I need two T-shirts from the comedy show, and give me three DVDs. The neighbors are asking for them.’
Maz Jobrani
I’ve worked every job under the sun, from waitressing in my teens, to clocking hours on a construction site in London (I have degrees in quantity surveying and construction). I modelled on the side and starred on reality TV in Ireland.
Vogue Williams
My older sister has all her degrees in theater, and I couldn’t stand the theater geeks!
Diane Neal
We should prepare our future workforce differently. It

We should prepare our future workforce differently. It isn’t just advanced STEM degrees. There are many jobs you can do without advanced degrees.
Ginni Rometty

Thomas Babington Macaulay

Robert J. Sawyer
Top-up fees mean that universities are increasingly under pressure to confer degrees upon students, who perceive the degree as a commodity they’ve purchased. Failure doesn’t enter into anyone’s calculations.
Sarah Churchwell
We were romantics in the 1990s and thought that communism was dead. But 10 years passed, and Putin came, and it became obvious that the process is reversible; that communism will, to varying degrees, return again and again.
Svetlana Alexievich

As an undergrad, I studied engineering physics at the University of Oklahoma, and all my degrees are from engineering departments. My father wanted me to join him in the oil-field business in Oklahoma, but I wanted to be a scientist.
Paul McEuen
Harvard produces leaders. People with Harvard degrees go on to become administrators in high-level positions in state educational departments and in public schools around the country.
Christina Hoff Sommers
I’ve always loved maths, so in college when I started engineering, I had applied math and I really liked it, so I overloaded my courses and did two degrees.

Hollywood, that whole industry, is a lot like a really small town. You bump into the same people all the time. I think Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon can be played with anyone and everyone in Hollywood.
Gabourey Sidibe
When I lived in London, I worked at the U.N. for a while as its human rights and refugees officer. I have two degrees, and my second was in radio. I was a programmer and news reporter in Canada. My CV looks bananas.
Hannah Simone
You know, my degrees are in computer engineering. I spent a lot of time in the tech industry. And I like to say that I don’t invest in tech because I spent time in it. And I saw firsthand that the durability of technology moats is many times an oxymoron.

The problem with Google is you have 360 degrees of omnidirectional information on a linear basis, but the algorithms for irony and ambiguity are not there. And those are the algorithms of wisdom.
William Hurt
I didn’t want to go get a job or get a degree in business or marketing, or whatever all my friends were getting degrees in.
James Marsden
Many of our young people spend four years getting very expensive college degrees. But our universities fail them and the nation if they continue to graduate students with expertise in biochemistry, mathematics or history without teaching them to think about what problems are important and why.
Heather Wilson
If we openly declare what is wrong with us, what is our deepest need, then perhaps the death and despair will by degrees disappear.
J. B. Priestley
Imagination is not the exclusive appanage of artists, but belongs in varying degrees to all men.
George Henry Lewes
The word that I constantly hear out of women is ‘fear.’ It’s almost like a background melody. Women have excellent degrees and experience, but we are afraid we aren’t good enough because we have such high expectations.
Mireille Guiliano
I was near the Niagara Falls where I was shivering and delivering my lines. It was minus 17 degrees and I had gone there without proper thermal wear. Tourists looked at me with horror thinking I had gone nuts.
Vivek
For me, I was always the only woman in my cohort, first as a mechanical engineering undergraduate student, then as a chemical engineering graduate student. There were very few women getting degrees in those fields at the time. My role models were men – great men role models.
Frances Arnold
On occasion we need to make a second effort – and a third effort, and a fourth effort, and as many degrees of effort as may be required to accomplish what we strive to achieve.
Thomas S. Monson
Once the shooting starts, we don’t mind whether it is 43 degrees plus or minus 6 degrees: we just keep working.
