Mike Love
I can’t quote stats from another decade. I’ve got friends that can do that. But I am a huge sports fan. In fact, I enjoy all sports, and when I enjoy a game for five minutes, I’m in it for the whole thing. Plus, I do have some teams I loyally follow.

Gavyn Davies
Keep in mind, the web existed for almost a decade before social networks became pervasive.

Steve Case
The first point to remember is that attempts to clone mice have actually been very unsuccessful for at least a decade. Sheep have been successful.

Ander Crenshaw
I want to be very clear: I will not sign on to any health plan that adds to our deficits over the next decade.
Barack Obama

Alex Tizon
If you’d asked me when I was 18 if I’d be happy being in the top 100 male players for 10 years, I’d have taken that like a shot. As it turned out I was top five for a decade.

I hear people in their 20s describe the 40s as a far-off decade of too-late, when they’ll regret things that they haven’t done. But for older people I meet, the 40s are the decade that they would most like to travel back to.
Pamela Druckerman
Black unemployment is twice white unemployment and has been for decade after decade.
Rand Paul
I first considered writing ‘New York’ in 1991. I’d been in the city for a decade, was married to an American wife, and sending my children to New York schools.

Edward Rutherfurd
In the space of a decade, China and India have emerged as dramatic, dynamic competitors.

My relationship with Shinsuke – I mean, he’s a tremendous guy, we’ve maintained our friendship for well over a decade, and he’s one of those incredible, rare, once-in-a-lifetime athletes whose ability transcends international border, which is something that’s not often able to be done.
Samoa Joe
I think I’d be a million times more successful and more iconic if I was a singer in the ’40s. I’d be allowed a level of mystery, and I think I’d suit that decade.

The level of shyness has gone up dramatically in the last decade. I think shyness is an index of social pathology rather than a pathology of the individual.

In an age when many of our citizens casually reveal information about themselves in social media wildly beyond anything imaginable only a decade ago, it would seem to be a useful exercise in civics to re-educate the public about the value and purpose of protecting against unwarranted government intrusion.
Richard Ben-Veniste
For more than a decade, Novartis spent hundreds of millions of dollars on so-called speaker programs, including speaking fees, exorbitant meals, and top-shelf alcohol that were nothing more than bribes to get doctors across the country to prescribe Novartis’s drugs.
Audrey Strauss
Obama and the Democrats’ preposterous argument is that we are just one more big tax increase away from solving our economic problems. The inescapable conclusion, however, is that the primary driver of the short-term deficit is not tax cuts but the lack of any meaningful economic growth over the last half decade.
Bob Beauprez
I was a student at Peking University for close to a decade, while a so-called ‘knowledge explosion’ was rapidly expanding. I was searching for not just knowledge, but also to mold a temperament, to cultivate a scholarly outlook.
Li Keqiang
After living a decade in Jakarta, I chose. I chose Manila, the Philippines, for better or worse.
Maria Ressa
As someone who has put my life on hold, my personal life on hold, for Parliament and for public service for over a decade and a half, I really got to a culmination point where I had to make a decision to have more normality in my life, or sacrifice that entirely for a campaign that was going to be all consuming.
Pierre Poilievre
I’ve thought for the last decade or so, the only actual place raw truth was seeping through in newspapers was on the Comics Pages. They were able to pull off intelligent social comment, pure truths not found elsewhere in the news pages, and had the ability to make it all funny, entertaining, and pertinent.
Elayne Boosler
There are people who possess not so much genius as a ce

There are people who possess not so much genius as a certain talent for perceiving the desires of the century, or even of the decade, before it has done so itself.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
A decade is a long time to be doing anything, much less to be with the same guys, chasing after the same goals.
Mike Shinoda

Paul Dini
The 1890s was perhaps the most Gothic decade ever: ‘Dracula,’ ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ and ‘The Time Machine,’ not to mention ‘Heart of Darkness’ and ‘The Interpretation of Dreams,’ were all written between 1890 and 1899.
Mark Fisher
I feel like Drake is doing exactly what I plan on doing, just being sick for all of, what, a decade now? And just always being able to switch it up and never stay in one box.

Sarah Weinman
Our decade of change has unleashed the ingenuity, creativity, and character of the most extraordinary people in the world – the people of this state, who come from every corner of the globe.
George Pataki
Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year – and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!

Jeffrey Dean Morgan
The defiance of established authority, religious and secular, social and political, as a world-wide phenomenon may well one day be accounted the outstanding event of the last decade.
Hannah Arendt
I can’t inhabit my characters until I know what kind of work they do. This requires research because my jobs for the last decade have been author and professor, and I’d like to spare the world more author or professor novels.
Victor LaValle
I was Pippa on ‘Home And Away’ for nearly a decade.
Debra Lawrance
The ’90s was a decade of mundane market-consumer nothingness where there was nothing coming up from the streets; you just had someone in an office deciding what was cool.

Rose Matafeo
Maybe to feel like an Afghan I needed to be born and raised in the States, and maybe I needed to live in Afghanistan for nearly a decade to feel like an American. Both worlds shaped me, but neither one of them completely correspond to the picture I have of myself.
Aman Mojadidi
Messi and Ronaldo have dominated world football for a decade and, given the nature of football, at a certain point the baton will have to pass to someone else. I think Neymar has a great chance of filling that role.
Jay-Jay Okocha
A lot of times in this business, it’s so transitory – it’s just 10 weeks here or there on a movie and then it’s over – but to see the same people over all that time, a decade, makes you feel really safe and secure.
Helena Bonham Carter
It’s only recently women got to be action heroes on TV. Progress is slow, and often non-existent. There’s plenty of cool comics with female characters… But all it takes is one Catwoman to set the cause back a decade.
Joss Whedon
After a decade this glum, we deserved a shot of ‘Glee,’ a show that restored our faith in the power of song, the beauty of dance, and the magic of ‘spirit fingers’ to chase our cares and woes into somebody else’s backyard.
James Wolcott
The ’60s are my favorite decade – with the Cold War, the women’s movement. And then there’s the music, the fashion, the clothes, the hair.
Margot Robbie
I believe we can prevent or delay most disease until the 9th or 10th decade. The goal is to prevent anything that can affect your quality of life prior to those years! By the time many of us get to the 9th or 10th decade, who knows where the new medical and science will take us? I am an optimist!
David Agus
An intriguing paradox of the 1990s is that it isn’t called a decade of greed.
Paul Samuelson
Breast cancer deaths in America have been declining for more than a decade. Much of that success is due to early detection and better treatments for women. I strongly encourage women to get a mammogram.
Larry Craig
If I had gone to a big network at age 28, I’d have been a big failure. I wasn’t ready and needed to make a decade of mistakes.
Colin Cowherd
In business, we say that people overestimate what you can do in a year and underestimate what you can do in a decade. This is true in philanthropy as well.
Marc Benioff
Your success has to be measured against yourself – a decade ago, last year, or yesterday.
Michael Gerber
Somebody will be able to crack ebook files in the same

Somebody will be able to crack ebook files in the same way that people cracked music files a decade ago. An author could have worked for three years on his book, have someone buy it for their Kindle for £6.99 and then see it shared with everyone in the world for free.
Simon Armitage
To the credit of the Republican Party and the conservative movement, people have been expelled or marginalized. Pat Buchanan in the ’90s. Ron Paul, Rand Paul in the first decade of this century. Bill Buckley famously expelled the Birchers in 1964. It’s been a movement that’s tried to maintain its boundaries.
Bill Kristol
It was amazing for me growing up in the musical decade of the ’60s. I saw The Beatles on television and went out and bought an electric guitar.
David Cassidy
Certainly a decade and a half out in the real world, bashing my head against things, probably made me into a more textured writer. It gives you something to write about.
Richard K. Morgan
I think the 20s are a vastly overrated decade. We promise kids that once they get out of school, life will begin and their dreams will come true. But then comes the struggle.
Tyne Daly
And I think what people in New Jersey have gotten to know about me over the last decade that I’ve been in public life is what you see is what you get. And I’m no different when I’m sitting with you than I am when I’m at home or anyplace else.
Chris Christie
Every decade there’s a new trend of films. Something else is more liked by the audience, something else is more popular.
Deepti Naval
For over a decade, I had played every week, so to then have a season when you are not – that physical and mental high when you build up to a game and come down afterwards – was missing. It takes a while to adjust and is quite confusing.
Robert Green
For over a decade, the top 1% of income earners have seen their pay skyrocket, riding a wave of lobbyist-sponsored financial de-regulation. For the remaining 99%, wages have stagnated, and employment has fallen off a cliff.
Reshma Saujani
Having a mustache and never smiling became a permanent component of my persona through the quaintly self-important decade of the seventies.
John Oates
The best thing you can learn from the worst times of your life is that it always gets better. It may take a month, a year, a decade, but it will get better if you leave yourself open to it.
Janis Ian
A lot of things we take for granted sprang out of the 70s; it was a decade for thought and if a decade can be a mentor, then the 70s was mine.
Vic Reeves
I well remember a leading Egyptian liberal saying to me in 2003 that she did not favor free elections right then in Egypt; she favored them in a decade’s time if she and others had those 10 years to organize freely.
Elliott Abrams
If there is any justice in the world, then eighties rock will never again serve to blight humanity as it did in that dark decade!
Vivian Campbell
Despite recent media reports that have clouded, or even misrepresented, the facts, there is compelling evidence that al-Qaida and Iraq have been linked for more than a decade.
Elizabeth Dole
I have been sober for the longest time. Oh, it’s over a decade now. No joke.
Dana Plato
It’s been more than a decade since ‘The Real World: Philadelphia’ aired. I’ve grown up. My views have evolved, as has the media landscape.

Annalee Newitz
I’d like to think of myself as the flavor of the decade.
Ron Paul
EarthEcho Expeditions represents the culmination of more than a decade of working with educators and youth from around the world. EarthEcho Expeditions uses the thrill of adventure to inspire and empower a new generation of environmental champions.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
You look at Governor Romney’s record in the private sector, he helped turn businesses around. Certainly a decade ago he took what would have been an international disaster with the U.S. Olympics, and turned it around for America and made us great again with the Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Scott Walker
Cory Doctorow should be too busy for lunch. He’s co-editor of, and a prolific contributor to, one of the most influential blogs in the world, Boing Boing. Over the past decade the Canadian-born writer has published 16 books, mostly science fiction novels. He campaigns vigorously on the politics of the digital age.
Tim Harford
A lot of people spend their last decade of their lives in pain and misery combating disease.
Craig Venter
We’ve been delivering cloud-based services for over a decade, with more than 30 million Intuit customers using offerings across a variety of desktop and mobile devices. The benefits are clear: online experiences are simply better for customer.
Brad D. Smith
I knew I was a world champion and a top contender at the highest level for over a decade, but I think I’ll be remembered as somebody that was an ambassador for the sport, someone who helped build something bigger than myself, and also for the team I’ve been able to build.
Urijah Faber
I didn’t wear jeans for, like, a decade of my life.
Melissa McCarthy
Fitness will be a major factor in the first race and I think that will play into the hands of drivers who have been racing recently, rather than people like me who haven’t raced properly for a decade. I’am not one of the favourites to start with.
Nigel Mansell
Throughout my decade on the bench, I have watched my colleagues strive day in and day out to do just as Socrates said we should – to hear courteously, answer wisely, consider soberly, and decide impartially.
Neil Gorsuch
I was a personal trainer for about a decade. I competed in powerlifting, and I did a bodybuilding competition. I was heavily entrenched in the personal training world.
Matt McGorry
I was born in the ’60s and grew up in the ’70s – not exactly the best decade for food in British history. It was horrendous. It was a time when, as a nation, we excelled in art and music and acting and photography and fashion – all creative skills… all apart from cooking.
Heston Blumenthal
All evidence shows that we are actually getting smarter. Roughly we are getting 10 IQ points smarter every decade. The speed of innovation is also faster.
Bjarke Ingels
Forties are good! I'm thinking with my brain now, which

Forties are good! I’m thinking with my brain now, which is a lot more clear, and women seem to appreciate that. It’s a wonderful decade where you’re in control of yourself but the women are still interested.
James Marsters
As an entertainment journalist for over a decade, I travel to great places for work, from red carpets in Rio, movie premieres in London to celebrity sit-downs in Bora Bora.
Ashlan Gorse Cousteau
I would say there’s always a movement of music and fashion in youth culture – every decade inspires the new one.
Maripol
Andrew Carnegie loved libraries; he knew their importance to an educated society and as anchors to our communities. And so, just as some loyal baseball fans travel to attend games at all 30 major league stadiums, over the last decade or so, I have slowly, casually, visited Carnegie libraries whenever I am on the road.
Sam Weller
I have been involved with the Roundabout for over a decade. Every once in a while, they’d give me a call to participate in a reading or offer me a show.
James Rebhorn
I don’t think the U.K. should leave the E.U. I think it would be a disaster for our economy, and it would lead to a decade of economic and political uncertainty at a time when the tectonic plates of global success are moving.
Andrea Leadsom
From the beginning of this century, for a decade as chief minister of Gujarat and for just over four years as India’s PM, Modi has made an indelible mark in the annals of our history.

You can’t segregate and humiliate people decade after decade without creating long-lasting injuries.
Bryan Stevenson
I’ve written only two novels, but they’re both long ones, and they each took a decade to write.
Donna Tartt
It’s been more than a decade since I put that self-published novel, ‘Lip Service’, up on a website. Since then, many hundreds of authors have gone from self-published to traditionally published.
M. J. Rose
I was turning 20 during my first record. Those decade birthdays always kind of cause me, it seems, to reflect, look back, and then look forward. I just was closing this period of my life where I was living in a car and scrambling my whole life to then signing a six-record deal with Atlantic.
Jewel
We are now in the Me Decade – seeing the upward roll of the third great religious wave in American history.
Tom Wolfe
Some day, somebody is going to have to start talking about what happens to us all a decade from now if we let these North Koreans and the Iranians go forward with their nuclear weapons program.
Lawrence Eagleburger
I take almost no notes when I write. I have one notebook – this old green leather notebook that my dad gave me a decade ago.
Nicole Krauss
The struggle to modernise the Labour party, which started under Neil Kinnock in the 80s, took more than a decade – and they were swimming in a largely friendly sea.
Damian Green
I just can’t believe all the things I did that decade.
Dick Schaap
With each passing decade, history becomes less real for us, less immediate and essential to our way of life, and so, like ‘green’ nature, more of a commodity or an advertising gimmick.
John Burnside
I have already established myself as Stuart Binny. I want to be known as a good player who served Karnataka cricket for more than a decade and also played Test cricket for country.
Stuart Binny
This mission was the project of a decade’s work.
Philippe Perrin
In the ’80s, it was difficult and frustrating to appear in the theater and TV again, even though I had some successful shows and hit records. Now, I have to say, the ’90s are the best decade of my life. I’ve done the best work and, in a funny way, I’m enjoying the most success… more than in the ’70s.
David Cassidy
This is my seventh decade… and every once in a while I get a hankering to re-visit these songs again… songs with which I have had a great relationship.
Eddy Arnold
The 90s was a difficult decade, with recessions in many transition countries and in emerging economies provoked by financial crises; and with continuing stagnation in Africa.
Hilary Benn
The ’80s were a lost decade.
John Cooper Clarke
Buying a house in Mumbai is a big deal. Even after a decade of being in Mumbai, there was a time when we didn’t have a house, suddenly the whole family was homeless.
Pratik Gandhi
I wasn’t born in the wrong decade.
Chloe Kohanski
The 1970s was the decade of developments in the new area of information economics. Search theory, which emphasized the need to gather information, was joined by models that featured asymmetric information, the case in which information differed across individual agents.
Dale T. Mortensen
We can choose a future where we export more products and outsource fewer jobs. After a decade that was defined by what we bought and borrowed, we’re getting back to basics, and doing what America has always done best: We’re making things again.
Barack Obama
The 1990s, after the reign of terror of academic vandalism, will be a decade of restoration: restoration of meaning, value, beauty, pleasure, and emotion to art and restoration of art to its audience.
Camille Paglia
Dan Brown and the ‘Da Vinci Code’ have been around well over a decade now, and to be perfectly honest, both he and it have become a joke.
Michelle Dean
It is fun to be in the same decade with you.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
We can now diagnose diseases that haven’t even manifested in the patient, and may not until the fifth decade of life – if at all.
Craig Venter
Every decade has its ABBA; that's the proof that pop wi

Every decade has its ABBA; that’s the proof that pop will always be around.
Gerry Beckley
After more than a decade as the editor of ‘Wired’ magazine, Chris Anderson started the company of his dreams – a robotics manufacturing company called 3D Robotics – to produce the autonomous flying vehicles coming out of DIY Drones.
Peter Diamandis
I know what it feels like to have a talent and not be able to use it for almost half a decade.
Justin Gatlin
When I started to write, it was the ’70s, and throughout that decade, we didn’t have any problems with book challenges or censorship.
Judy Blume
I started blogging a decade ago because I like blogging. Writing’s a kind of lonely thing to do, and I liked the idea of demystifying the process because I loved it as a kid and teenager and as somebody who wanted desperately to write.
Neil Gaiman
Cerner has significant growth opportunities. We believe there is leverage with HNA Millennium and in our business model that can grow both our top-line and earnings during 2000 and through the foreseeable part of this decade.
Neal Patterson
Over the past decade… while many businesses have pursued what I call ‘business as usual,’ I have been part of a different, smaller business movement, one that tried to put idealism back on the agenda.
Anita Roddick
More than a decade and half after 9/11, U.S. military actions in countries such as Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and several other Muslim nations are governed by the Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) that was passed in the days immediately after 9/11.
Peter Bergen
What Bloomberg and his elitist cronies will never understand is what saves the Second Amendment is the tidal wave of support from the majority of the American people. And decade after decade, NRA has been their voice.
Wayne LaPierre
Around 2001, I went to rehab in Arizona, and I started to see what was going on and how the past affected me. I started to get a grip on it. But over the next decade, I reverted to the behaviour I used to protect myself when I was young – being mindless, being defeatist and full of bravado.
Jimmy Barnes
Imagine a political system so radical as to promise to move more of the poorest 20% of the population into the richest 20% than remain in the poorest bracket within the decade? You don’t need to imagine it. It’s called the United States of America.
Thomas Sowell
The names of common flowers change from decade to decade, so I spent a lot of time with old outdated dictionaries, with awful flower names like ‘mouse-eared chickweed.’
Vanessa Diffenbaugh
After a decade in public life working to stop Iran from ever acquiring nuclear weapons, I cannot support a deal giving Iran billions of dollars in sanctions relief – in return for letting it maintain an advanced nuclear program and the infrastructure of a threshold nuclear state.
Ted Deutch
I’m generally an optimist, but of course, when you’ve been with the UFC for a decade and still not had a title shot, there is a little part of you that wonders if it will ever happen.
Michael Bisping
None of the actor methods ever discussed what it would be like to play a character on film for over a decade, and what it must be like to return to a character and imagine the time off-screen, which is interesting. There’s something as an actor that I enjoy about evolving characters.
Vin Diesel
It has been, after all, 11 years, more than a decade now, of defiance of U.N. resolutions by Saddam Hussein. Every obligation that he signed onto after the Gulf War, so that he would not be a threat to peace and security, he has ignored and flaunted.
Condoleezza Rice
Fashion is constantly changing from decade to decade, but I don’t see a change in how many black faces I see on the runway, and it’s something we should talk about because it’s a problem.
Jessica White
For more than a decade after the 2000 election, leading Democrats ran from their gun control past and bent over backward to assuage the fears of gun owners.
Steve Kornacki
The emergence of Pakistan, a decade ago, was an act of protest against the existence of privilege in the social order of the subcontinent of India.
Aly Khan
I think most models fear growing old, but from a tender age I had always chosen to play someone grown up. I am slowly but surely catching up with the people that I have spent the last decade and a half trying to portray.
Erin O’Connor
It took a little over a decade to build a coalition strong enough to beat the insurance companies, but in 1990, then Senator Tom Daschle and I passed a law regulating the private market for supplemental Medicare insurance policies.
Ron Wyden
I’d like to have a decade of my life back. I dropped into a void for almost a decade.
Charles Durning
I always say God should have given women one extra decade at least, especially if you want a family. You’re trying to pack a lot in.
Christine Baranski
Just a decade after ‘Living in Bondage,’ Nollywood films, made in some 300 languages, were being watched in both urban and rural areas, distributed on both the streets and online, and finding their way into international festivals.
Elizabeth Flock
Every decade, we get a stunning collection of dynamic, heartbreaking short stories. In the past, those collections came from Barry Hannah, Mark Richard, and Thom Jones.
Chuck Palahniuk
There has been one defining production for me in each decade.
Stephen Daldry
Nearly a decade of time is enough for everybody to change, quite a bit.
Alexis Bledel
It’s always true, and in all the arts. When one guy’s terrific, there will be a lot of other terrific guys around. And this last decade, the ’90s, has been a period of very low talent.
William Goldman
Two years passed, and I had no second book to follow ‘Roots.’ Four years passed, six years. When a decade had passed without me having another book to follow ‘Roots,’ I was having serious private frustrations with myself.
Alex Haley
I felt like onstage I have to have a certain amount of anonymity, like, personal anonymity, to feel loose and free. When you’re up there with people who’ve known you for a decade, and you make a bad joke and you hear the cackling behind the drums, it’s hard to get lost in the moment.
Jenny Lewis
Calling a young artist ‘great’ these days can give one the heebie-jeebies: The word has been denatured in the past decade.
Jerry Saltz
I had run other people's campaigns. I had been doing po

I had run other people’s campaigns. I had been doing political activities for a decade before I ever ran for office myself. That is so much the experience of women of my generation. We always feel as though we have to bring so much more to the table, and that never stops the guys.
Mazie Hirono
I spent almost a decade as an undercover officer in the CIA. I was the guy in the back alleys at four o’clock in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the Homeland.
Will Hurd
I had real plans for my next decade and felt I’d worked hard enough to earn it. Will I really not live to see my children married? To watch the World Trade Center rise again? To read – if not indeed write – the obituaries of elderly villains like Henry Kissinger and Joseph Ratzinger?
Christopher Hitchens
My first job was to run a concessions cart. Later, I found a position at the Pacific Film Archive. Thus began a long series of jobs, each one slightly better than the last, that continued for a decade, until I sold my first novel, and still goes on, even now.
Mona Simpson
Every decade needs its own manual of handicraft.
Liberty Hyde Bailey
After 2003, we lowered taxes across the board. And by 2004, revenue to the federal government grew. In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan cut taxes dramatically. And by the end of the decade, revenue coming in the federal government had doubled.
Pat Toomey
The ’60s may be idealized in the movie from a cultural point of view, but the decade was all about discord and a big generational split that was very painful.
Jane Fonda
We keep a woman in prison for decade after decade at a cost of $60,000 a year, and then give them $200 when they hit the gates for release. And, adios. People have to get their IDs, Social Security cards. They have to get clothing, housing, apply for benefits and services, and it’s impossible to do with 200 bucks.
Susan Burton
We were postwar middle-class white kids living in the slipstream of the greatest per-capita rise in income in the history of Western civilization; we were ‘teen-agers’ – a term, coined in 1941, that was in common usage a decade later – a new, recognizable franchise. We had money, mobility, and problems all our own.
John Lahr
People clinging to job security, savings, retirement plans, and other relics will be the ones financially-ravaged from 2010-2020, the most volatile world-changing decade in history.
Robert Kiyosaki
I married a Florentine. We bought a house, had a family, and after a decade in our little Hollywood nest, we said, ‘Let’s go to Tuscany.’ Tell God you can’t make him laugh, but the next thing I know, my cooking show has become a hit, and they’re asking for more seasons, and they want it to be in the States.
Debi Mazar
Wall Street shouldn’t be deregulated. I think Wall Street and Main Street need to play by the same set of rules. The middle-class can’t carry the burden any longer, that is what happened in the last decade. They had to bail out Wall Street.
Stephanie Cutter
It’s funny, I used to say on ‘That 70’s Show’, you could really put us in any decade, and it was about the people and the characters and that we cared about each other.
Laura Prepon
A decade down the line, I don’t want to sit back and think that I didn’t do anything to stop disasters like the extinction of certain species.
Abhay Deol
Far from ending, systemic racism reinvents itself to conform to what is publically acceptable, leaving the quality of black life diminished and more permanently fixed with each passing decade.
Opal Tometi
Almost a decade removed from the foreclosure crisis that began in 2008, the nation is facing one of the worst affordable-housing shortages in generations.
Matthew Desmond
History suggests the 2010s will give rise to a super-unicorn or two that reflect the key tech wave of the decade, the mobile web.
Aileen Lee
The culture of self-gratification and deregulation that began during the Clinton years and continued under President George W. Bush led to the bursting of one stock market bubble at the turn of the century and a full-scale financial crash less than a decade later.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
I am thankful to my parents for letting me pursue music as a career. No one in my family is a musician, so when I won a music reality show a decade ago, it was a breakthrough for me.
Neeti Mohan
In every country I visit, I am proud to present Jasmine and what we are doing here. I am in no doubt that we will soon be called upon to teach others the model we have been developing for the past decade, for the promotion of women-owned businesses.
Ofra Strauss
When I turned 50, something clicked in my head and I said, ‘I’m not going to live to 100. I’m half-cooked already.’ I set the family down and I said, ‘Listen everybody, we’re now entering the decade of Daddy. We’re going to start doing things that I want to do.’
Kevin O’Leary
During the decade following the discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA, the problem of translation – namely, how genetic information is used to synthesize proteins – was a central topic in molecular biology.
Venkatraman Ramakrishnan
Going to school was an absolute terror for me for, like, a decade.
Jonathan Van Ness
If you look at ‘Mad Men,’ it’s set in the wrong decade. The style of Mad Men is really the 1950s, not the 1960s.
Jerry Della Femina
A decade and a half ago, the U.S. Air Force dropped massive 15,000-pound ‘Daisy Cutter’ bombs on the Tora Bora complex where Osama bin Laden was hiding in December 2001.
Peter Bergen
About once a decade, it becomes necessary to remind Americans again that Ulysses S. Grant was a great man, indeed a giant figure. The usual way to try to do this is by publishing a thumping big biography, and let me say that there is nothing wrong with this, although it still hasn’t worked.
Michael Korda
The idea of exploring character relations and their development over a decade has to be appealing for any actor who cherishes his craft.
Vin Diesel
If the social media platforms don’t take the gatekeeping seriously they will kill the public sphere. If we don’t get this right in 2020 you can open a decade or longer of a descent into fascism. And it will be global because platforms are global.
Maria Ressa
The weird thing for me is I’m sitting there in the ’80s writing about the Mutant Control Act and here we are in the second decade of the 21st century with the Patriot Act, listening to presidential candidates talk about building walls to keep people out: who’s acceptable and who isn’t. It’s very creepy.
Chris Claremont
A decade in advertising exposed me to plenty of schemers and backstabbers. But honestly, advertising is wonderful training for fiction. Writing novels is much easier if you’ve ever tried to write a billboard.
Marcus Sakey
During the Blair-Brown decade social concerns – what kind of society we have become – have gradually replaced economic worries. People fear that we have become an increasingly fragmented, boorish, more violent society.
Andrew Neil
I spent close to a decade as an undercover officer in t

I spent close to a decade as an undercover officer in the CIA and have spent most of my adult life collecting intelligence and protecting sources and methods.
Will Hurd
As a personal matter, I stopped voting more than a decade ago, on the grounds that it helped me as an analyst not to think about making a choice in the voting booth.
Jeff Greenfield
The problem is that during the 1980s, a decade of heavy poaching, the elephants retreated to safer areas. And now people have moved into the corridors once used by the elephants.
Richard Leakey
I majored in Computer Science at U.C. Berkeley and worked as a software developer for a couple of years. Then I taught high school computer science for over a decade and a half in Oakland, California.
Gene Luen Yang
I just turned 30 so I got really introspective as you do, questioning my life. And when I stopped and sort of looked back at the past decade, I realized I had done more work than I thought I had done.
Sheryl Lee
‘Night of the Living Dead,’ then ‘Dawn of the Dead’ is a few weeks later, ‘Day of the Dead’ months later, and ‘Land of the Dead’ is three years later. Each one spoke about a different decade and was stylistically different.
George A. Romero
Since the early 1990s, I had been very worried about the state of the environment, and by the end of that decade, I realized I needed to do something about it.
Ryuichi Sakamoto
When I was in my early forties, I slept with a loaded gun under my bed. I’d become severely depressed in my thirties, and for almost a decade I spiraled down into paranoia, rage, self-loathing, and thoughts of suicide.
Byron Katie
I’d been told, or warned, that when you paint one room, not only will it look nice, but it will also make the room next to it look as if raccoons have been living in it for the past decade.
Christopher Buckley
George W. Bush has dutifully, if not intentionally, provided Americans with laughs for nearly a decade. He has also made them cry, sometimes for the same reason.
Alexandra Petri
The ’90s and early 2000s were the ‘I’ decade. iPhone, the iPod – everything was about me. Look where that got us? In a terrible recession.
Adam Neumann
To me, I think of the ’70s as being this glorious decade where I discovered who I was and discovered all these amazing things… punk rock, electro music, fashion, all of that.
Boy George
We all know my image of the last decade, look I can’t take it back. I am who I am, I’ve done what I’ve done. I’ve had problems off court, I’ve been arrested and stuff, but that’s that.
Bernard Tomic
One of my biggest gripes with wrestling in the last decade is it has seen a lot of silly, goofy characters. I feel like every other match is a comedy spot, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but I think if there is a comedy spot, it should be special.
Eli Drake
Let us be about setting high standards for life, love, creativity, and wisdom. If our expectations in these areas are low, we are not likely to experience wellness. Setting high standards makes every day and every decade worth looking forward to.
Greg Anderson
Really, I could care less if there’s a Second Decade record.
Michael W. Smith
It took me a good decade of hiding in my house and not going outside to even, like, get my arms around this idea of celebrity, where suddenly people are looking for you to pick your nose or get a shot of you kissing some woman. It’s a very discombobulating thing.
Brad Pitt
As I made my way through ‘On Line,’ the austere, stridently dogmatic, sometimes revelatory exhibition ‘about line’ at MoMA, I found myself thinking, ‘Someone please wake me when the seventies are over!’ In the empire of curators, the sun never sets on the seventies. It is the undead decade.
Jerry Saltz
It may sound surprising when I say, on the basis of my own clinical practice as well as that of my psychological and psychiatric colleagues, that the chief problem of people in the middle decade of the twentieth century is emptiness.
Rollo May
Here is what we know after more than a decade of Republican rule: Texas works. Even ‘The New York Times’ let it slip into its pages that, ‘Texas is the future.’
Rick Perry
But baseball bounced back in the next decade to reclaim its place as the national pastime: new heroes, spirited competition, and booming prosperity gave birth to dreams of expansion, both within the major leagues and around the world.
John Thorn
The most interesting people to me are entrepreneurs. As someone who’s owned my own business for over a decade, I am always so inspired by people who are building things.
Rachel Hollis
R&B was really prominent in the ’90s, and we can all admit that it kind of fell off. But my generation is more in touch with our emotions – we’re not afraid to show them. We’re bringing that decade back.
Justine Skye
In the budget, the president will call for a five-year freeze on discretionary spending other than for national security. This will reduce the deficit by more than $400 billion over the next decade and bring this category of spending to the lowest share of our economy since Dwight Eisenhower was president.
Jack Lew
I am blessed to have made my career as an actor for a decade now and I’m grateful for that. It could arguably have gone better in ways and it certainly could have gone worse, but you have to keep fueling the fire.
Jason Butler Harner
The year I was born, 1955, the first big disease-eradication program in the world was declared for malaria. After about a decade of work, they realized that, at least in the tropical areas, they did not have the tools to get it done.
Bill Gates
For a decade, Emma-Lee Moss has been steadily making weird, moody, melancholic music under the moniker ‘Emmy the Great’ that has been referred to as nue-folk, anti-folk, synthpop, and, most of all, literary.
Jenny Zhang
It’s crazy what can happen in a decade and how much you can grow as a person and as a woman and truly find your voice.
Nikki Bella
Racism plagued America throughout the ’60s, into the ’70s, through the ’80s; it continued in the ’90s and in the first decade of the new millennium; and it persists today.
Jack Schlossberg
Much of my reading time over the last decade and a half has been spent reading aloud to my children. Those children’s bedtime rituals of supper, bath, stories, and sleep have been a staple of my life and some of the best, most special times I can remember.
Louise Brown
For many Europeans the next decade looks to be filled with threats rather than opportunities.
John Hutton
All of us, at different times of life, are looking for

All of us, at different times of life, are looking for answers. It happened to me a decade ago and led me to the path of wanting to know more. I read Osho, Sadhguru, Deepak Chopra, and Parmananda Yogi. I haven’t found the ultimate answer. The journey is the answer.
Kirti Kulhari
As far as Iraq is concerned, let’s not forget what the UNSCR is about, that the main consideration in Iraq is that there is a leader who has been developing weapons of mass destruction, and has been violating UN resolutions for over a decade.
Donald Evans
I covered financial news and Wall Street for a decade.
Margaret Brennan
There is a sociology of horses, as well as a psychology. It is most evident in the world of horse racing, where many horses are gathered together, where year after year, decade after decade, they do the same, rather simple thing – run in races and try to win.
Jane Smiley
The Millennials graduated into the worst jobs market in 80 years. That did not just mean a few years of high unemployment, or a couple years living in their parents’ basements. It meant a full decade of lost wages.
Annie Lowrey
To some, the ’50s were a decade marked by the banal, the predictable.
Annette Funicello
Even a healthy economy and labor market would have struggled under the additional expenses enacted and proposed in 2009 and 2010 – from healthcare mandates and higher taxes, to carbon cap-and-trade and delay in extending the last decade’s tax reforms.
Elaine Chao
Don’t try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won’t live long enough to find out about, but I’m still curious about them. You know people who are already saying, ‘I’m going to be 30 – oh, what am I going to do?’ Well, use that decade! Use them all!
Betty White
I have spent a decade of my life dating. I am thrilled about never going on another bad date for the rest of my life. I’m also so excited to learn and grow with the person I respect most in this world.
Leah Pipes
I don’t believe that what Tears for Fears has done, and continues to do, can be pigeonholed into a genre or decade.
Curt Smith
Dread, which is closely related to fear, steals the ability to enjoy ordinary life and makes people anxious about the future. It keeps them from looking forward to the next day, the next month, or the next decade.
Joyce Meyer
I think three-to-five years ahead minimum. I have a short-term plan, a five-year plan and a decade plan.
Steve Garvey
I didn’t even realize that I was interested in film until I was in college, and since then, I’ve had a very uncertain and sort of lost decade.
Gaby Hoffmann
The action we take and the decisions we make in this decade will have consequences far into this century. If America shows weakness and uncertainty, the world will drift toward tragedy. That will not happen on my watch.
George W. Bush
For the last decade, the last 50 years, Barcelona dominate football matches. I love the way they play.
Pep Guardiola
I hadn’t published a book of poetry in over a decade because I’ve been very ill. As I got better and started to write, I said, ‘Wow, even as an old woman, I could have a selected book of poems.’
Ntozake Shange
I’ve known Russell Allen for over a decade now, and I’ve always thought he was a very underrated singer. He has one of the best voices in the business I’ve ever heard.
Mike Portnoy
My teammates will tell you I find it hard to remember what happened two weeks earlier, let alone what happened a decade and a half back.
Mithali Raj
The Declaration on Strategic Partnership between India and Russia signed in October 2000 became a truly historic step. The developments in the first decade of the 21 century confirmed that it was a particularly significant and timely step.
Vladimir Putin
Some grocery stores began using electronic scanners as early as 1976, and the devices have been in general use in American supermarkets for a decade.
Andrew Rosenthal
I’m almost positive I have some type of PTSD. Almost a decade of my life was consumed by the prison system.
Remy Ma
I think the 1970s will always be the decade for me. Obviously, I grew up in that era, but the beauty standard was touchable, kissable.
Tom Ford
Sculptures created from found materials like ice and thorns, driftwood, and even bleached kangaroo bones all presuppose that artistic design will yield to the cycles of time and climate, whether over an hour or a decade.
Simon Schama
When do you suppose the electric guitar was invented? If you thought the 1950s, you’d be wrong. If you can muster a recollection of hearing electric guitar in Lionel Hampton’s big band in the 1940s and date it to that decade, you’d still be off – by more than 30 years.
Daniel Levitin
I’m not a one-hit wonder as some suggest. I’ve had a couple of hits, but still, all of my hits were in the ’70s. There was pretty much nothing in the ’80s, ’90s, or in the first full decade into the next millennium.
Todd Rundgren
I keep showing decade after decade that I am a real performer.
Patti LaBelle
The ’80s have not been a gracious decade, and people are seeking ways to be nice to each other.
Letitia Baldrige
When you start off as a dancer, you don’t become one overnight; you must train for more than a decade.
Amala Akkineni
I started working with brain sensing tech in labs over a decade ago and was immediately fascinated by the potential to help people peer into the workings and behaviors of their own minds.
Ariel Garten
There’s nobody in the world like me. I think every decade has an iconic blonde, like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana and, right now, I’m that icon.
Paris Hilton
Despite the left’s best hopes, the Manafort indictment didn’t contain a single reference to the Trump campaign and the charges he faces are completely tailored to a decade of shady business deals overseas. Collusion wasn’t the center of the charges and President Donald Trump was left out of it.
Katie Pavlich
There have been linkages between the Iraqi government a

There have been linkages between the Iraqi government and al-Qaeda going back more or less a decade.
Douglas Feith
Comscore, Nielsen, MediaMetrix and Quantcast studies all show women are the driving force of the most important net trend of the decade, the social web.
Aileen Lee
I still do cardiovascular exercises, aerobic exercises, and then strength training, as it’s important to keep your muscle strength, as every decade you lose about 10% of this.
Lynn Davies
It’s been a very long journey, and people have been immensely kind. They’re not tired of watching me on television for a decade; they want to see more of me.
Vikrant Massey
It needs to be said, over and over again, that Stan the Man was voted by ‘The Sporting News’ as the best baseball player of the postwar decade, from 1946 through 1955.
George Vecsey
There is no single development, in either technology or management technique, which by itself promises even one order-of-magnitude improvement within a decade in productivity, in reliability, in simplicity.
Fred Brooks
I had the chance to be governor for eight years and I took a year to transition out and a year to transition in, so that’s a decade of my life where I pursued my own ambitions and I thought it was time to rearrange my life to focus on other things.
Jeb Bush
All of a sudden I’m an actor, and I spend a decade trying to fit in and realising that I didn’t, really. Sometimes in the right circumstances, with the right people, it felt OK. But other times it was a bit more jobbing. I didn’t fit the mould, somehow.
Paddy Considine
I was 7 years old when the ’80s began and 17 years old when they ended, so it was an incredibly formative decade for me.
Ernest Cline
Modi has been the Gujarat chief minister for more than a decade, but there is a vast difference between controlling a state and leading a nation.
Sharad Pawar
As I look at the barn in my ninth decade, I see the no-smoking sign, rusted and tilting on the unpainted gray clapboard. My grandfather, born in 1875, milked his cattle there a century ago.
Donald Hall
Over two billion people now use the broadband Internet, up from perhaps 50 million a decade ago, when I was at Netscape, the company I co-founded.
Marc Andreessen
If we each take responsibility in shifting our own behavior, we can trigger the type of change that is necessary to achieve sustainability for our race or this planet. We change our planet, our environment, our humanity every day, every year, every decade, and every millennia.
Yehuda Berg
While one might laugh at the meaningless boredom of people a decade or two ago, the emptiness has for many now moved from the state of boredom to a state of futility and despair, which holds promise of dangers.
Rollo May
Over the next decade, cities and states across America will be compelled to tighten their belts as the really big bills – the pension bills they cannot afford – come due. They’ll have to go after existing contracts with current workers.
John Podhoretz
Anytime you leave something you’ve done and where you’ve been for nearly a decade, it’s going to be different.
Nnamdi Asomugha
Coming out of Juilliard, I honestly was expecting and willing to be breaking my neck, hustling, and being unemployed for a decade, two decades. I was gritting my teeth, but I was so down to do that.
Alex Sharp
When you’re playing the same character for a decade it’s natural that there are moments when you want to try something new.
David Schwimmer
