Pete Dunne

I enjoy practicing law too much to even contemplate retiring, but I often think about engaging in serious study of the history of art, of the intricacies of classical music. I could write a fugue, or perhaps learn to play the cello.

To me, one of the things I love about being an actor is that it’s never done; it’s never perfect, and so it’s the process. It’s like practicing being okay with things not being perfect and things being outside of your control.

There's a great deal of suspicion and misunderstanding

Mitch Kapor
I’m a natural piano player. So all the practicing I do at this point is in my head. If I don’t play for a year, my chops aren’t going to get any worse.

Harry Connick, Jr.
I actually no longer use ‘art’ as the framing device. I think I’m just kind of practicing things, practicing life, practicing creation.

I’m a practicing Christian – and I’m going to keep practicing till I get it right – but I don’t feel everyone has to practice the same religion that I do. You have a right to worship who you choose and how you choose to.
Jane Elliot
I’m practicing a kind of meandering faith, or faithful meandering. I just trust that something is coming. I don’t know what it is. But I’ve been a straphanger all my life; I know what it’s like to not know when the next train is coming, but I trust the subway.
Sarah Jones
I spend a lot of time practicing active imagination before I go to sleep. What I’m feeling will manifest as images through active imagination. And then I go to sleep, and those play out even more in my dreams.

When it’s football time, that’s where I am – the studying, the working, the practicing, everything.

LeSean McCoy
I’m the only one in my family – I’m a practicing Jew – who has attached themselves to religion in a more traditional way.
Jessica Hecht
I was raised Catholic in Rockford, Illinois. But I’m not a practicing Catholic anymore. Oh God, no.

John Petrucci
Ever since I was little, I was changing the pace. I think I was just getting bored on the court, so I was trying anything. It’s been working ever since. I’ve been practicing it, and it’s obviously throwing off a lot of players.

Goldie Hawn
Oh, I was super serious about practicing and rudiments, and still am. I still have all my books.
Travis Barker
My biggest thing about being a role model is whatever I’m preaching, I’m practicing. If I’m telling people I’m boxing and then I’m eating a burger tonight, it’s because I am. I’m not cheating and eating a salad and then being like, ‘Yeah! Burgers are cool!’
Gigi Hadid
Practicing going over scenes and in front of the camera just to see how that feels, and then ultimately just finding a way to expose yourself to people. That’s what I did.
Bridgit Mendler
My father is a practicing criminal law attorney in the Seattle area.

These people that worked with my dad doing landscaping were in a grunge band so the music on the cover of Rolling Stone was in a very real way connected to people practicing in the woods near my house while I was home doing my homework.
Phil Elverum
I started doing ’30 Rock’ and started writing ‘Mystery Team’ at the beginning of that. While I was doing ‘Mystery Team,’ I started practicing stand-up. While I was doing stand up, I got ‘Community.’ It’s like I planted trees six years ago, and now they have fruit.
Donald Glover
All the training for the combine was basically practicing for the different drills that we would see at the combine. Rather than football specific drills that we would do at BC.

In the balance of my professional life, I've had the pr

I could hear my friends outside playing soccer while I was expected to stay inside practicing the piano. It was like torture!
Ildar Abdrazakov

Neil Gorsuch
I don’t see any harm in working, getting out there, and practicing.

Merrie Spaeth
I don’t know if I practiced more than anybody, but I sure practiced enough. I still wonder if somebody – somewhere – was practicing more than me.
Larry Bird
I’ve been a practicing physician for over 30 years. Every day, I get to wake up and do a job I love – it’s not something I take for granted. I want every child in our commonwealth to have that same opportunity, and the foundation for that is a quality education.
Ralph Northam
To me, the object of practicing is to allow you to play what you hear. But you’re always hearing new things, so you never get to the end of it.
David Sanborn
I have an interesting perspective on depending on others. I think it gives people a chance to serve. And I’m not so much big on independence, as I am on interdependence.

When I was 15, I had a crush on this guy who was really good at magic, and so I learned to juggle, thinking it would impress him. I spent hours and hours practicing, planning to show him. And then I never even saw him again. But at least I learned how to juggle.
Danica McKellar
I grew up playing the saxophone. I joined the jazz band in high school, but somewhere along the way I realized the guys who strummed acoustic guitars at parties were the ones who got the attention.
