I’ve had people – I’ve seen people do routines that I knew they didn’t take from me but they had – because for whatever reason I had stopped doing it a long time ago. There’s no way they would have heard this bit. But it ends up being pretty much the same thing.

I can hit baritone notes, and I can sing in the soprano range if I wanted to. I did this thing a long time ago where I did a duet with myself. I sound like two different people.

I always make this joke that I know you were expecting to see the big skirts and the hoops. But that was a long time ago. Artists aren’t always seen as real people. If you start out as a teenager, sometimes people want to keep you locked as that. But I’m a woman now.

I learned a long time ago to be honest when I’m talking to other artists. Up-and-coming artists used to come and say something, they would have a demo reel, and I would try to tell them the truth. I don’t go up and say something unless I really feel it.
I realized a very long time ago, that I was never going to be the guy who, ‘Oh, you look so big, let’s push him in the main event and see,’ or, ‘Oh, this guy’s got the best physique ever, let’s put him in the main event and see.’ It was always going to be the hard way.

America decided we were going to stand by and let Americans die at the hands of terrorists a long time ago.

You know, now it’s sinking in. It’s taken me a long time to realize – and it is sinking in – how important this book is. And I have a certain distance now. I’ve done it such a long time ago.

Eileen Myles
My parents came a long time ago to Vienna, met in Vienna. Of course they had to go through a lot also, but we’re very happy to have our home in Vienna.
David Alaba
In some ways, September 11, 2001, seems a long time ago. Yet we have done so much in only a few years, and we will continue to do so in the future, to prevent such attacks on America.
George Allen
I’ll bet you $10 right now that there are an awful lot of literary writers who started a long time ago and now they find themselves in this place where secretly they feel trapped. And you know what they really read for fun? They read crime fiction.
Robert Crais
I began taking liberties a long time ago; now it is standard practice for most directors to ignore the rules.
Michelangelo Antonioni
We forget when we’re all grown up. 16 was a long time ago. It’s hard to remember how freakin’ difficult it is as 16! Life is not easy, and you’re trying to figure stuff out.
Greg Rucka
But please know, whether you believe campaign contributions are speech or property, that I learned to love very dearly the right of free expression when I lived without that freedom for a while a long time ago.
John McCain
As an engineer, I learned that a long time ago: you don’t want to get into a rational discussion about irrational subjects.

Wayne Shorter
I learned a long time ago: You’re in the entertainment business. You’re not in the reality business. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

Mandy Harvey
It makes me very sad. Everyone's afraid of each other -

It makes me very sad. Everyone’s afraid of each other – Jews are afraid of Palestinians, Palestinians are afraid of Jews. Everywhere I see fear, not understanding. Reason went out of the window a long time ago.

Someone said to me a long time ago, ‘You’re a drag queen,’ and at the time I was a little like… hello? But then I realized over the years that I actually am.
Roisin Murphy
I did an album a long time ago called ‘Replicas,’ which was entirely science-fiction driven, or science-fantasy. Since then it’s been a song here, a song there. It’s not really a constant theme. I’ve written far more about my problems with religion, with God and all that.
Gary Numan
YG and I started a long time ago back in ’08, and I am proud of where we are now.
Ty Dolla Sign
A long time ago, I watched President Reagan repeat a few simple points about the benefits for everyone of lower taxes, light regulations, and limited government. Successful policies are sold by repetition, not unrelated tangents.
Lawrence Kudlow
I really love helping students and helping them empathize with people who lived a really long time ago. That’s one of the highlights of working in fiction.
Deborah Harkness
I feel like I hadn’t given that many classic films, like, a really good chance. I watched ‘Casablanca’ a really long time ago when I was like, 12. I didn’t like it that much, and then when I saw it again in class, I loved it.
Miranda Cosgrove
I learned a long time ago that you can’t skip steps.
Monty Williams

Mike McCarthy
I learned a long time ago that some people would rather die than forgive. It’s a strange truth, but forgiveness is a painful and difficult process.
Sue Monk Kidd
Life had stopped for her a long time ago. She was so out of touch with her feelings that she had no joy in her life and no concept of the fact that she could be wrong. She delivered her care of her insane patients in a killing manner, but she was convinced she was right.
Louise Fletcher
A long time ago, my grandfather used to play blackjack with me, when I was very small, and I quite enjoyed that.
Victoria Coren Mitchell
I decided a long time ago that I didn’t have to be talented. I just had to be persistent.
Kate DiCamillo
Kevin Systrom of Instagram used to work for us as a consultant in the early days of Mint. I knew him a long time ago. Maybe I could have gotten in there. But with photo sharing, I don’t know if there’s an obvious business model. I don’t think there’s a competitive, sustainable advantage.
Aaron Patzer
I was close to getting married a long time ago. But it didn’t happen, and since then it has not been happening. It is jinxed, and I am very happy. I hope this jinx continues.

My work participates in that really quick and easy and inexpensive material that’s part of our culture. In that way, my work engages the means of production that we live with, even while it’s classical and embodies some things from a very long time ago.
Jessica Stockholder
I’m in my mid-40s now, and I came out in 11th grade, so I must have been 17. So that’s quite a long time ago, and the temperature and the culture was different.

A long time ago I learned how to shut my mouth, listen to my coaches and put trust in my coaches.

Instant dashi is also the key ingredient to these savory dinner oats, which I developed specifically to showcase this powerful powder. Someone a long time ago decided that oatmeal belonged in the breakfast category, but I think that chewy, hearty, steel-cut oats need more airtime in our lives.
Sohla El-Waylly
Hollywood has lost touch with their audience a long time ago.
John Ratzenberger
I’ve always been interested in the office. I was a secretary a long time ago, and I’ve always been into paperwork. My first secretarial job was 1965 or 1966.
