The ‘Britishness’ debate too often descends into worthy flannel about common values and mutual respect.

The media thinks that only the cutting edge of science, the very latest controversies, are worth reporting on.

Eliezer Yudkowsky
Look at how a caretaker has worked for the England rugby team in the Six Nations – they’ve done fantastically. Everyone’s got an edge. No one’s sure of a place, and everyone has an incentive. So I’d back the FA if they decided not to go for a full-time manager yet.

‘Tis the sharpness of our mind that gives the edge to our pains and pleasures.
Michel de Montaigne
I think that’s something a scientist can do because a scientist works at a border, at the edge of science, at the edge of knowledge, and so there’s a lot of fun of reaching out and thinking about things that other people didn’t think about.

People from the Bay feel like they have something to prove, and I always love feeling like I have something to prove.
Ricky Reed
It’s like a novelist writing far out things. If it makes a point and makes sense, then people like to read that. But if it’s off in left field and goes over the edge, you lose it. The same with musical talent, I think.
Johnny Cash

A business of high principle attracts high-caliber people more easily, thereby gaining a basic competitive and profit edge.

Putting women in military combat is the cutting edge of the feminist goal to force us into an androgynous society.

Angelos Postecoglou
If research can help us discover cures for diseases, it surely can improve a football team. Whether it’s data analysis or biomechanics, it can give you an edge – and I’d be a fool if I didn’t want that edge.
Niko Kovac
Honestly, you could go as far as to say I have a boring edge.
Tulisa
The last thing I want is for people to say that the music is nice. It’s not nice. It sounds good, but it’s got grit, and it’s got edge. It never veers into sweet.
Lukas Forchhammer
Trying to outplay my sister or come out from her shadow, I think that gave me an edge, or a chip on my shoulder. That’s where the flair and a little bit of the drama came from.
Reggie Miller
I always felt that a painted edge between two colors was a depiction somehow.
Ellsworth Kelly
Sometimes when you think you are done, it is just the e

Sometimes when you think you are done, it is just the edge of beginning. Probably that’s why we decide we’re done. It’s getting too scary. We are touching down onto something real. It is beyond the point when you think you are done that often something strong comes out.
Natalie Goldberg
The comedy on ‘2 Broke Girls’ always comes from a place of love – it’s never mean. We’re a comedy, and we often go right to the edge. It doesn’t bother me. I’ve encountered this all my life. I’ve been made fun of all my life.
Matthew Moy
I love ‘River’s Edge.’
Jon Watts
5G cell networks create a whole new wave of distributed and edge computing.
Michael Dell
I started doing sculpture in 1959. I had no commissions then. They were painted, similar in style to the paintings… At a certain point, I decided I didn’t want an edge between two colors, I wanted color differences in literal space.
Ellsworth Kelly
I thought I’d get over being insecure if I became famous, but it hasn’t happened. It just gets worse, really. You get more and more on edge, more nervous. These are all the things I’m dealing with. You think if you get famous, fear will go away and problems will go away. But they don’t.
Christian Slater
With the Neal Morse Band, we’re doing progressive music with a harder edge; it’s a little more in Dream Theater territory for me. Flying Colors is a little more poppy, it’s more Radiohead, Muse, and Coldplay territory, so I approach that drumming in a different way.
Mike Portnoy
I don’t know, people take chances on stage. It’s a big free speech zone, a comedy show. So sometimes things happen, you say things that are a little bit off the edge.
Drew Carey
‘Close to the Edge’ is the album where we first attempted to do the extra-long-form piece of music, having one song taking up the whole side of a piece of vinyl.
Chris Squire
Whoever is in the best shape, whoever has put in the most work in the offseason is going to have a little bit of an edge, especially the first few games.
Michael Carter-Williams
Often times, when you find an edge, it’s not for very long. People figure it out, so you have to try and exploit it, quickly, while you can.
Sam Hinkie
We have this very clean picture of science, you know, these well-established rules with which we make predictions. But when you’re really doing science, when you’re doing research, you’re at the edge of what we know.
Lisa Randall
Revolutions and their aftermaths, of course, are always fluid and fickle times, and the outcome is often perched on a knife’s edge.
Sri Mulyani Indrawati
I think good art happens on that edge between comfortable and in a lot of pain, you know what I mean?
Liz Phair
I am simply not prepared to stand back and watch my country fall off a cliff edge. If that means voting against my party, so be it.
Anna Soubry
The data center side of the world is kind of like a solved problem, but you see interesting things happening on the edge with things like cell phones and embedded systems that are becoming really fascinating.
James Gosling
I think fear is what keeps us from going over the edge. I mean, as a race car driver, I don’t think what makes a good race car driver is a fearless person. I think it’s somebody that is comfortable being behind the wheel of something that’s somewhat out of control.
Jeff Gordon
I want to explore my boundaries. I want to push myself and go right to the edge of what I am capable of. I don’t want to ever be comfortable.
Shura
It’s a great time to be doing political satire when the world is on a knife edge.
John Oliver
There’s not too much Edge in Adam Copeland, but there’s a little bit of my sarcasm and my sense of humor, I guess, but I’m not a sleazy, raving maniac like the character of Edge could be.
Edge
About the 50th hour, I was going to start thinking about the edge of the universe. Is there an edge? Is this an envelope we’re living inside of, or no, does it go onto infinity in both time and space? And there’s nothing like swimming for 50 hours in the ocean that gets you thinking about things like this.
Diana Nyad
I’m good when I’ve got a bit of an edge, like the Clint Eastwood type of archetypal character. The tough guy that doesn’t say a lot.
Scott Adkins
Well, the stuff that has become more commercial doesn’t have any edge.
Iggy Pop
The Normans came over, lance in hand, burning and trampling down every thing before them, and cutting off the Saxon dynasty and the Saxon nobles at the edge of the sword; but the right of petition remained untouched.
Caleb Cushing
On ‘Edge of Tomorrow,’ we discovered that movie while we were making it.
Doug Liman
I love a man who has lived a full life and lived on the edge.
Carmen Electra
I think Edge has completely put himself on the map as a bona fide WWE superstar.
John Cena
If I am training on a holiday, most likely nobody else is – and that gives me the edge. If I’m supposed to run for 20 minutes and I get back and it’s only been 19:34, I’m going to jog in a circle for 26 more seconds. I’m never going to cut it short.
Carli Lloyd
Thrillers are my favorite. I like stuff that keeps you on the edge of your seat or maybe makes you jump.
Corey Feldman
I had this vision of shooting a great white in the studio with all the edge lights I use for movie posters. I knew that I couldn’t bring the great white to the studio, so I had to bring the studio to the great white.
Michael Muller
Check out London, Manhattan, Aspen and East Hampton real estate prices, as well as high-end art prices, to see what the leading edge of hyperinflation could look like.
Paul Singer
I live on the edge of Bath. It's really lovely, but its

I live on the edge of Bath. It’s really lovely, but its very loveliness freaks me out a bit. It’s peaceful, a great antidote to the craziness of being on tour, but sometimes I feel as though I’ve retired.
Alison Goldfrapp
I think therapy interferes with the creative process. It takes off the edge.
Michael O’Donoghue
A great solo is one that’s so frail that it actually teeters on the edge of falling apart, but doesn’t.
Joe Bonamassa
Travel means growth. You have to see something new. You have to grow. You can’t grow in the same place. Travel takes the edge off and you are thrust into a new environment where you are forced to survive and to learn the language.
Redfoo
For the kid in me that had a rockier edge and wanted to be Stevie Nicks, it’s been fulfilling that I’ve met Dave Navarro and Dave Grohl, these amazing artists that have given encouragement.
Tiffany Darwish
Yeah, I think it motivates you as people start to count you out. It doesn’t make you play any harder, because every time you go out on the field you give 110 percent, but it does give you more of an edge mentally, knowing that you were in the same situation, because in sports you always find yourself behind.
Joe Montana
Playing with a man over me in a 34 type defense really doesn’t change what I have to do. You still have to play aggressive football and execute. No matter what the front, I think strength gives me a little edge.
Mike Webster
We stand today on the edge of a new frontier – the frontier of the 1960’s – a frontier of unknown opportunities and perils – a frontier of unfulfilled hopes and threats.
John F. Kennedy
Ever crack an egg into simmering water only to watch the white spread out and form wispy tentacles? It happened to me until I came across this game-changing fix: Break the egg into a sieve set over a bowl. The watery outer edge of the white will drain through, leaving the thicker white and yolk intact.
Claire Saffitz
The financial world is at the cutting edge of high technology.
Robert Harris
A lot of bands have to change what they sound like, but we are exactly the band that we want to be: a pop band, definitely, but we’ve got a rock and punk edge.
Luke Hemmings
I spent 25 years clearly understanding that I’m not gonna meet Bono or the Edge. But then it happened at the Grammys when we were all backstage and I just about fell out of my shoes.
Kristian Bush
I listened a little to punk when I was younger, but it was straight edge punk. It was nothing like what is going on now, like poppy punk.
Travis Barker
We simply believe that we should lean into the world with something other than the pointed edge of a sword.
Chris Murphy
‘Sweet Genius’ viewers will be on the edge of their seats as we continue to push the limits with inspirations and ingredients, while showcasing the talents of some of the best pastry chefs around. As a result, the desserts that the chefs create are truly outrageous.
Ron Ben-Israel
Most important to any fake story is a plausible, realistic edge with a satirical twist that is topical.
Joey Skaggs
A well-designed 401(k) plan is an enormous competitive edge when recruiting and retaining employees.
Barry Ritholtz
My favorite artists are able to take things to the edge or just over the edge. Miles Davis and Duane Allman, for example. It’s about not playing too many notes. Those guys had lots of phases to their careers, but they always played with economy and intelligence.
Derek Trucks
To eat the boiled head of a pig sliced like salami is very strange. It may seem cutting edge, but it’s actually a lot older than any of the other traditional salami.
Mario Batali
Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge. Some of us have ventured out nevertheless, and so far we have not fallen off. It is my faith, my feminist faith, that we will not.
Andrea Dworkin
When it passes towards the east, the sun begins to have less effect upon it, and a thin line on the edge of its bright side emits its splendour towards the earth.
Vitruvius
I’ve got good speed off the edge.
Malik Jackson
I was not a good teacher; I didn’t have the sort of edge one should have on the students, so I decided to do something else.
Terrence Malick
There’s a different kind of attitude when you come from Western New York. You work for everything you get, and nothing’s really handed to you… You realize good work turns to good things, and that’s the edge I always came up with.
Luke Harper
Much as soldiers come back, they’ve been in combat or the edge of it and suddenly that adjustment back to civilian life is a real challenge.
Mark Dayton
Performing is just standing up there and doing something. Performance takes on an edge to it. It has a more dramatic context.
Alan King
Sugar does make people happy, but then you fall off the edge after a few minutes, so I’ve really pretty much cut it out of my diet. Except for cupcakes. I like those.
David Lynch
Once you begin shooting, Bollywood actors get totally involved in their roles, and that gives you an edge in getting what you want out of them.
Prabhu Deva
If Death Grips isn’t the fourth horseman of a hip-hop apocalypse, its music at least tests the genre’s threshold of extremity: The trio’s abrasive, jittery style teeters on the edge of palatability, and plays toward a morbid curiosity to which many listeners won’t succumb.
Anthony Fantano
There’s a misunderstanding about what nonsensical things are – the idea that they’re just funny, and that’s the beginning and the end of it. Nonsense is not ‘not sense’ – it operates at the edge of sense. It teems with sense – at the same time, it resists any kind of universal understanding.
Jesse Ball
I definitely like a little bit of darkness, a little edge. I get a little bored when things are maybe too simple or too… expected.
Deborah Ann Woll
The point is to balance on the edge between musicality

The point is to balance on the edge between musicality and content.
Rick Moody
I know most players do, but I always keep both eyes opened. I still do it. I see two shafts, the real one and the transparent one. I look for what’s on the inside edge of the transparent one.
Ben Crenshaw
I went very close to the edge, but it’s nice to have been strong enough to get through it. I’m lucky I had family, a good husband, and my mom. People like that help balance you. When you’re feeling down and bad, it’s the people that love you who kind of sort your head out for you.
Dolores O’Riordan
The coral that grows at the edge of the reef is always the strongest and most colourful because it faces the greatest battering. It’s the same if you’re called Honeysuckle. I’d have had a totally different life if I’d been called Mary.
Honeysuckle Weeks
People who label themselves as ‘realists’ are usually accurate – they see to the real edge of what they know, understand, or believe. At best, these folks tend to be caring worriers.
Brendon Burchard
I’m a winner and I’ve had that instilled in me since I was a kid and sometimes it goes over the edge.
Jonjo Shelvey
As time goes by the memories of sitting on the edge of a bed and reading aloud with your kid are going to be very meaningful in your own mental scrapbook.
Gary Ross
I thought of America as Natalie Wood and Bob Wagner sprawled on the edge of a Hollywood swimming pool biting into the same red apple.
Bharati Mukherjee
I got a phone message from Janet Jackson saying, ‘Hi, I love ‘Losing My Edge’, can you do me something funky and dirty like that?’ I can’t really do off-the-peg stuff, so I never called back.
James Murphy
I played in Velvet Revolver, which is a raw, bombastic blues band with a punk rock edge to it. It’s like everything is based around the blues, no matter what the groove is.
Scott Weiland
The original ‘Edge of Darkness’ was fantastic, a fabulous series. It was of its time, but this film version shows that times really haven’t changed.
Ray Winstone
The leading edge of the best science in the world is being driven by private money, and investment money because of the scarcity of government money to do this. It’s not only by far the best and most advanced science, we’re driving the equation at Human Longevity that everyone else is beginning to follow as well.
Craig Venter
Heels, and shoes in general, are such an easy way to complete any outfit and give it that little bit of flare or edge you want.
Jeffree Star
Though familiarity may not breed contempt, it takes off the edge of admiration.
William Hazlitt
I’ve never recorded anyone else’s songs. I’m not interested. If you gave me a song by Bono and Edge and promised me a number one hit with it I’d still say no. That, for me, is not the kind of success I want.
Gilbert O’Sullivan
I wear a lot of hair extensions because I’m doing a lot of shoots and things like that. But for me, a good edge control is really important, and then a headscarf at night.
Ayesha Curry
Securing and attracting the best talent is an obsession in the tech industry for good reason. It’s your main asset; it’s your edge.
Taavet Hinrikus
I like playing these characters who are just on the edge of ridiculous but always grounded in reality. I would never want to come across as a cartoon.
Kaitlin Olson
We have come to the edge of the abyss and now it is time for a bold step forward. There is a political view that the tougher you are, the more credible you are.
Ed Balls
Men like us who live on the edge and had this player life – and for even some that still do – we gotta respect women – we gotta understand that their position here is much bigger than what we might give them.
Ray J
Not having a trainer is basically just giving an edge to my opponent, and I’m not willing to do that anymore.
Chris Eubank Jr.
I was writing waltzes at a time when the most popular thing was Shania Twain and the very pop edge of country. I didn’t really know how to do much of that.
Chris Stapleton
It is greed or financial difficulty that makes people fix matches, not gaining an edge over rivals, so it is different from say Lance Armstrong or Ben Johnson.
Neil Robertson
I miss all of the singing from the ’90s; I miss groups. There are no groups like Jagged Edge and SWV or Brownstone.
CeCe Peniston
The older generation may see us as plucky little Britain, on the Edge of Europe. But more and more of the post-war generation see Britain as a less beautiful, more cramped, more snobbish, less glamorous version of America.
Harry Enfield
You can become a winner only if you are willing to walk over the edge.
Damon Runyon
I usually have three fried eggs every morning. It always has to be three: two is just not enough, and three won’t put me over edge.
Ali Krieger
Using string bends instead of just playing regular, unbent notes can definitely help give certain riffs a cooler, heavier edge.
Dimebag Darrell
I always try to find companies I see eye to eye with. It was an easy collaboration with Hyland. They’re a well-rounded player and always try to find certain strategies to give their clients a competitive edge.
Xander Schauffele
We love movies like ‘Edge of Tomorrow.’ It’s why we go to the movies, and it’s why we make movies.
Doug Liman
We grew up listening to so much hardcore: everything from the very early D.C. stuff – Teen Idols, Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, SOA, Government Issue – to bands who weren’t straight edge, like Negative Approach. I really feel they were one of the greatest punk bands ever.
Davey Havok
Because there is no cosmic point to the life that each

Because there is no cosmic point to the life that each of us perceives on this distant bit of dust at the galaxy’s edge… there is all the more reason for us to maintain in proper balance what we have here. Because there is nothing else. No thing. This is it. And quite enough, all in all.
Gore Vidal
Lita was the perfect blend of pretty and punk, Lucha with a gothic edge and a high-flyer who could take on anyone, anytime, anyplace. She truly was ahead of her time.
Natalya Neidhart
I have a theory about Ireland, being at the edge of Europe. For 1,000 years, people didn’t know what was beyond. But we thought about it – a lot. And that ‘beyond’ became internalized in our psyche.
Conor McPherson
When I was on ‘One Life to Live,’ I always wanted to delve into my character, Layla, to find out why she was the black sheep of the family. I so wanted to have some edge. I have no idea why there was a reluctance to do that or why we so rarely see it.
Tika Sumpter
Once a week, someone tells me to toughen up, get a sharper edge. I don’t do that.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
Charming people live up to the very edge of their charm, and behave as outrageously as the world lets them.
Logan Pearsall Smith
I think all of The Beatles were from an era when certainly playing was important to them, and they were cutting edge. But for all time, they’re master composers.
Paul Gilbert
Bill Murray is such a tremendous talent, but the world wasn’t ready for ‘Razor’s Edge,’ for something that thoughtful and with that much depth at that time in his career.
Keegan-Michael Key
I’m a great admirer of Primo Levi’s work. It’s always mind-boggling, the idea of how much pain people can endure and still come back from the edge with a sense of humor, with this tremendous animal desire we have to get on with life.
Allan Gurganus
I was the kind of reader in smudged pink harlequin glasses sitting on the cool, dusty floor of the Arrandale public library, standing at the edge of the playground, having broken a tooth in dodge ball, and lying under my covers with a flashlight.
Amy Bloom
Most of the books and films I love walk a knife edge between romance and cynicism, and I wanted ‘One Day’ to stay on that line. I wanted it to be moving, but without being manipulative.
David Nicholls
Health care costs blunt the competitive edge of American entrepreneurs, from the auto industry to internet start-ups.
Tom Allen
The leading edge in evidence presentation is in science; the leading edge in beauty is in high art.
Edward Tufte
I learned, for me to play at my best, I need to play with an edge.
Baker Mayfield
Every striker has to have that edge. When they are not scoring, or when the team is losing, they explode.
Romelu Lukaku
The promos with all of the beautiful women probably attracted some men, but the mystery story line is pretty cool. It’s got that dark edge, and people will watch anything funny.
James Denton
So long as the universe had a beginning, we could suppose it had a creator. But if the universe is really completely self-contained, having no boundary or edge, it would have neither beginning nor end: it would simply be. What place, then, for a creator?
Stephen Hawking
No nation has embraced Total Quality Management, e-commerce and e-government with greater enthusiasm than Dubai. Such innovations have given Dubai a competitive edge and an accelerated growth rate that few could match.
Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair
‘Losing My Edge’ was an anthem for the aging music nerd, with lyrics detailing a comically epic list of historical dates, bands and attended gigs: the anti-hipster’s defence against ‘the art-school Brooklynites in little jackets and borrowed nostalgia for the unremembered Eighties.’
Katie Kitamura
I learned it was crucial to play right on the edge of the beat… It makes you drive the song more. You’re ahead of the beat, but you’re not.
Glen Campbell
In New York and L.A., there is sort of that silent competition to be on the cutting edge of something. You end up having a conversation with how the world receives your work, especially if you are writing narrative, not fiction. Sometimes it is an awkward conversation. It’s like group therapy.
Sloane Crosley
People on the edge of love go with their heart and not their head.
Sienna Miller
I used to ride motorbikes and drive cars like everything was a racetrack; it was ridiculous. It wasn’t because I thought it was cool; it was just because I loved living on the edge. But I’ve chilled.
Orlando Bloom
Success in sport is based on you thinking you are doing something to gain that edge, but if I wanted that little bit extra, I would go and run up sand dunes at Merthyr Mawr.
Lynn Davies
Tag team wrestling is what put myself, Edge, the Hardys and the Dudleys all on the map. It made us into WWE superstars, and without that, I don’t think that my singles career would have gone to the places it went to.
Christian Cage
I had an edge in ‘Andhadhun’ because, being a musician, I knew how to play a guitar, so it was not difficult for me to learn a musical instrument.
Ayushmann Khurrana
Sometimes if I’m in my head before a take, I’ll just like to reach out to the closest thing to me – the wall or a sharp edge – and just push into it. That way, my physical experience is totally contemporaneous and not in the clouds.
Timothee Chalamet
These individuals on steroids, does it enhance their career, does it give them a little more strength, a little more stamina, a little more psychological edge? Absolutely. How do you determine what – what their stats would be without steroids? It’s impossible to tell.
Jose Canseco
I tend to be attracted to material that has a tough edge to it – darker material.
Sondra Locke
Because of who I am and what I’ve accomplished, everything is pretty much given to me. People cater to me all the time. It’s almost like I’ve lost that edge – lost the ability to want something and then put in the work necessary to get it.
Ken Shamrock
All our words from loose using have lost their edge.
Ernest Hemingway
I like living on that edge, musically. I like a bit of

I like living on that edge, musically. I like a bit of insecurity and that feeling of not really knowing what’s going to happen.
Kamasi Washington
When you rebound, you’ve got to get some edge. You get some elbows early in the game, it kind of gets your blood flowing. Then you’re kind of just on edge, just aggressive from there.
Harrison Barnes
Investing is about predicting the future, and the future is inherently unpredictable. Therefore, the only way you can do better is to assess all the facts and truly know what you know and know what you don’t know. That’s your probability edge.
Li Lu
I think you should ride the line between fatigue and chaos. The chaos keeps the energy level and spontaneity maximized, while fatigue is just over the edge, and you should try to avoid it.
Ted Nugent
I don’t think that – you know, I’m sure that there’s guys that are doing it, because I’m sure in every sport there’s players who want to get the edge. But I think that it’s been blown overly – way more than guys are using it in our game.
Rafael Palmeiro
I don’t want to sit by the edge, like some other guys who have played their game. Earned money, have nice lifestyles, and don’t say anything.
Sol Campbell
We’re always thinking of different things to be on the cutting edge of what’s entertaining or what’s hot on Twitter or social media or even society in general. I’ve had little goals here and there. But that’s the main goal. Always changing, always be prepared to adapt.
Kofi Kingston
When I was a child, I had posters of James Dean in my room. I was a big admirer of his work and was fascinated by him living on the edge. Looking back, my life was kind of the same.
Boris Becker
Surely the President can agree with us, that theft from government is not good. I know it’s bold. It’s out on the edge. I know from a Chicago-Springfield background it’s hard to fully grasp that honesty could be part of government.
Newt Gingrich
You have to travel globally today to know what’s going on and maintain an edge.
Yuri Milner
There’s nothing like living a little close to the edge that gets you motivated to ensure that you get the credentials you need to succeed.
Thomas Friedman
The industrial revolution in the new century is, in essence, a scientific and technological revolution, and breaking through the cutting edge is a shortcut to the building of an economic giant.
Kim Jong-un
I have thought about the next steps, and you know, they still don’t know that I can dance. They don’t know it, and it’s frustrating me because I feel that it’s an edge that I have, and I’m not talking about I took this hip hop class, I’m talking about this is how people actually know me.
Naima Adedapo
S Club 7, in some ways, was a continuation of some of the things I’d have liked to have done with the Spice Girls. It was also a shift in tone. S Club was this equality of boys and girls, very positive, very uplifting, didn’t have the edge of the Spice Girls. I didn’t want to repeat it.
Simon Fuller
Technology is an enabler; you have to be at the cutting edge of technology – there is no choice.
Uday Kotak
You lose attitude when you feel too comfortable, so I prefer to wear clothes that have a certain edge to them.
Carine Roitfeld
It’s fun to play a character who lives on the edge, who is an ethical and moral mess, and is paying the price for some of his actions.
Josh Charles
My favorite film is Gene Tierney and Tyrone Power in The Razor’s Edge.
Terence Stamp
The white spruce forest along the banks is most inspiring, magnificent here. Down the terraced slopes and right to the water’s edge on the alluvial soil it stands in ranks.
Ernest Thompson Seton
There’s still nothing I love more than being in the air. I’ve always liked speed and things on wheels, going out there and putting it all out there, being on the edge.
Rickie Fowler
I spent my last year of high school in Latin America, and there’s a edge of salsa under all of my rhythms.
Stephen Stills
Central Philippines has the competitive edge in tourism in its natural wonders and the extraordinary hospitality of its people.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
I don’t go out there to hurt people, I don’t even know how to attempt to hurt somebody. I play hard, bring the edge. I’m an instigator. That gets me going.
Patrick Beverley
What we’re doing is special and unique in its own way but still keeping it heavy. For me as a listener, part of the journey I’m on with Metallica, there’s just a certain edge that needs to be there.
Robert Trujillo
Every film that comes out that incorporates CGI or performance capture is a little bit ahead of the last film that came out. You’re on the cutting edge for a certain amount of time, and then the new technology comes out.
Ben Schnetzer
I fear nothing. I fly around and do things a guy 6-2 and 240 would not do. That gives me an edge.
Rohan Marley
Sometimes, I seem to be only able to actually move and get going with things on the razor edge of possibly still managing whatever it is I’m supposed to do. I think, secretly, I might even get a buzz out of it. Maybe I crave the adrenalin like some sort of crazy gambler high on risking everything on the turn of a card.
Steven Hall
The funny thing is, the music that I’m writing now is probably some of the most cutting edge we’ve ever done. The music that I’m thinking about putting on our next album.
Charlie Daniels
I get magnetically pulled towards a project because there’s something in it that offers me the opportunity to explore the edge of my understanding about myself.
Maggie Gyllenhaal
You don’t have a Batman without Bruce Wayne. Batman is the edge or scary image for Bruce to use.
Paul Dini
Every movie has three things you have to do – you have to have a compelling story that keeps people on the edge of their seats; you have to populate that story with memorable and appealing characters; and you have to put that story and those characters in a believable world. Those three things are so vitally important.
John Lasseter
The wisest hustler can suddenly fall for the worst tram

The wisest hustler can suddenly fall for the worst tramp and lose all of his money on her. The hustler is aware of his own weaknesses and openings to con. This awareness is his edge.
Robert Greene
At my age, I’m not trying to score cool points. I’m just excited when I can speak to younger members of our audience in the WWE. I just get to be a superhero to kids, but I’m not trying to be on the cutting edge of style or anything like that. Once you reach that point of deprivation, you don’t mind it.
John Cena
You need to feel that the game is important to you. Lose that feeling and you lose your edge. There’s no faking that kind of emotion. You can’t invent the feeling. It’s got to be natural, real.
Dan Marino
I’ve always been more interested in organisms that can move on their own than in stationary plants. But when I canoe or hike along the edge of lakes or oceans and see trees that seem to be growing out of rock faces, I am blown away. How do they do it?
David Suzuki
I’m somebody that has a very big competitive edge and a chip on my shoulder.
Erin Andrews
There are some very unsavoury aspects of art dealing that go with the unregulated nature of the market but its all part of the glamour. Glamour always has an unsavoury edge. I dont want to come across as preachy.
Grayson Perry
I always really enjoyed Edge’s entrance theme. Also Stone Cold. WWE once asked me in an interview, if I had to change my entrance music, whose would I choose, and I said Edge. So they created a video of me using that song, and I was like, ‘I’m in love.’
Paige
The NBA has prided itself on free expression. Its players and owners have a well-earned reputation for speaking out on social justice in the United States. Sadly, it seems woke capitalism stops at the water’s edge.
Ben Sasse
I love pop, but with an edge so that’s what I’d say my music is. And quite controversial.
Sarah Harding
As an owner, you have a choice. Do you want to adopt a vision that you think is real sharp and real cutting edge and could get you from good to great – has a chance – or do you want to just say the organization is not about that, and we’re not going to try to adopt a new coaching philosophy and vision.
Jeffrey Lurie
‘Munmun’ happened because the human world’s dizzying inequality – of wealth and of power – had begun to send me over the edge, and I had to write something to try to help myself understand it a little better.
Jesse Andrews
I don’t make political statements; let’s all have a laugh. Let’s all live and be free. I try and live to the letter of the law, but right on the edge of it.
Mark Roberts
I like living on the edge.
James Dyson
I’m from a small town on the bottom edge of Mississippi, very near New Orleans and the Louisiana border. My family has lived there for generations.
Jesmyn Ward
They dined on mince, and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon; And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon.
Edward Lear
The game of investing is a process of discovering who you are, what you’re interested in, what you’re good at, what you love to do, then magnifying that until you gain a sizable edge over all the other people.
Li Lu
Now, I am not saying that there is one single type of individual who is a better type of terrorist than another. What I am saying is that the circumstances that push certain individuals over the edge, to become terrorists, are generally very, very similar.
Loretta Napoleoni
The only time information is really an edge is if you either have more or you’re using it better.
Daryl Morey
Wrestling has always been on that edge of a cliff in many areas as far as what is politically correct and not.
Brandi Rhodes
I always want to be on the cutting edge.
Frank Peretti
I just like guys who have an edge to them. But it could go either way. Like, I have been into the surfer blond frat guys, and then there’s definitely a thing where I like the dark, mysterious bad boy.
Ashley Tisdale
That’s how I choose to approach my career. I’m constantly trying to find an edge and find the next way to improve myself.
Trevor Bauer
If we just sit and exist, and understand that, I think it will be helpful in a world that seems like a record that’s going faster and faster, we’re spinning off the edge of the universe.
Martin Scorsese
New Yorkers may think they’re on some cutting edge, but that’s not especially true. It is, however, the most exciting heterogeneous mess of a town I’ve ever seen.
Carter Burwell
It seems to me, thinking of it, that there must be some universal plan which set in motion the orbiting of the electrons about the nucleus and the slower, more majestic orbit of the galaxies about one another to the very edge of space.
Clifford D. Simak
Intelligence services all over the world, in order to retain their competitive edge, have to adapt or they won’t survive.
Gina Haspel
If you must speak ill of another, do not speak it, write it in the sand near the water’s edge.
Napoleon Hill
Flying Colors is more alternative pop with a prog edge. Think the Beatles meets U2 meets Muse and Foo Fighters. It is the opposite of Adrenaline Mob, which has more classic metal influences like Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Pantera, or Disturbed. They are completely different ends of spectrum.
Mike Portnoy
Ever since I found out I got the part on ‘Gilmore Girls,’ my life has been changing in so many ways. It seems as though all we get is good news. I’m just so grateful to be a part of it. It’s a wholesome show with an edge. I have no idea how we pull it off.
Keiko Agena
I guess you have to be on the edge of the normal human condition to be exceptional.
Edd China
I’m terrible at solving things. I’m really bad and haven’t got any sort of lateral thinking capacity. I am your perfect audience for a mystery. I love that kind of stuff. I’m always on the edge of my seat.
Julia Sawalha

Athletes are used to battling. The public would never learn their names if professional athletes had not shown courage at an early age. They learn they can overcome, but sometimes this becomes a false sense of security that leads them to the edge.
George Vecsey
There is a percentage of people who want to be a little bit outside their comfort zone and I am one of them, someone who lives on the edge.
Alain Robert
One of my earliest memories is of seeing my mother in her beach chair, reading a book under an umbrella by the water’s edge while my sisters and I played beside her. Of all the life lessons she taught me, that is one of my favorites: to take time at a place I love, restore my spirit with books and the beach.
Luanne Rice
I love all of Albert Brooks’ work from ‘Defending Your Life’ back to his first film, ‘Real Life’, but am sorry that he seems to have lost his edge in his more recent work.
Douglas Wood
You should never feel comfortable. There is something wrong if you are. You should always feel under threat, on the edge of your seat and pushing yourself. Win one and you want to win more. It’s never-ending.
Damon Hill
Only a good actor has an edge over a weak actor. A hardworking actor has an edge over a lazy actor. Nationality has nothing to do with it.
Mahira Khan
I view edge providers as a significant bright spot in our struggling economy. They are tirelessly innovating, growing, and meeting – often exceeding – consumer expectations.
Michael O’Rielly
Finnish companies tend to be very traditional, not taking many risks. Silicon Valley is completely different: people here really live on the edge.
Linus Torvalds
I enjoy trying to inspire myself. I enjoy the artistic side of everything. Music, art, fashion, everything. I just like to be on the cutting edge of it. I’m into designing houses and interior design. I like change. I like creating things out of nothing.
Chris Kirkpatrick
I play poker, a game where there is no edge but the luck of the deal and the skill of the player.
Victoria Coren Mitchell
Seventeen consecutive years of irregular war, extended years of budget uncertainty, and an increasing complex security environment have eroded our competitive edge.
Mark Esper
Well, I’m a pretty wild guy and I live pretty close to nature – I’ve often lived in caves or on the edge of cliffs or in forests – so it’s just second nature for me to tap into the movings of the weather and the world.
Dean Potter
It’s not like Alaska isn’t wilderness – it mostly is. But most Alaskans don’t live in the wild. They live on the edge of the wild in towns with schools and cable TV and stores and dentists and roller rinks sometimes. It’s just like anyplace else, only with mountains and moose.
Tom Bodett
‘The Voice’ has lots of singers who fit the ‘Idol’ mold of young, innocent ingenues with psycho stage moms. But it also has long-suffering adult pros, with a whiff of thirtysomething despair in their voices. That adds an edge of realness.
Rob Sheffield
I love the song ‘Into the Night.’ It’s Roy Orbison meets David Lynch meets Iggy Pop on amphetamines. It has a punk edge that is not HIM, per se. It is super melodic and super ’60s, and that is very new to me and it is a sense of achievement to me.
Ville Valo
Everything that happened to me as a child was the perfect breeding ground for a rock n’ roll singer. It toughened me up. I was on edge; I was needy. I needed people to like me ’cause it made me feel safe… and that gave me confidence.
Jimmy Barnes
I’m dependent on writing for a living, so really it’s to my advantage to understand how the creative process works. One of the problems is, when you start to do that, in effect you’re going to have to step off the edge of science and rationality.
Alan Moore
I did grow up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, around a lot of my mom’s family. I had a lot of cousins and aunts and uncles around me, and my sisters and my brother. Probably the most formative part of it was that we grew up on the edge of a forest. It wasn’t a big forest, but it was enough. When you’re a kid, it feels gigantic.
Mark Ruffalo
Oh I love gadgets and I pride myself on keeping at the cutting edge of technology.
Alexander McCall Smith
Only once in my life was I on the edge of incivility. I do not like to be unkind.
David Rockefeller
In real life, I swear by Edge Control by Olive Oil. My hairstylist hates it, but it’s everything to me. And I mean everything! It’s like a perm in a little jar of gel.
Tasha Smith
Life has taught me to be very cautious of a man with a dream, especially a man who has teetered on the edge of life. It gives a fire and recklessness inside that is hard to quantify.
Bear Grylls
I have a special place in my heart for the Straight Edge Society. Never reached its full potential.
CM Punk
It’s good to be slightly ambitious, but I believe one shouldn’t be too calculative. It’s good to be on the edge, but I have never followed my mind. I have always followed my heart. And it has yielded the right results.
Deepika Padukone
Edge goes out every night, and not just on pay per views; every night, Edge goes out there with the intention of stealing the show. I know that he felt like his title run had not been given the respect from the company that it deserved, and he was really hell-bent on proving that he belonged as a main event guy.
Mick Foley
I wasn’t always such a great fan of Shakespeare, mind you. I can guess we all at one time had it rammed down our necks at school, which tends to take the edge off it.
Christopher Eccleston
From a good book, I want to be taken to the very edge. I want a glimpse into that outer darkness.
Mark Haddon
Until the Eighties, Oslo was a rather boring town, but it’s changed a lot, and is now much more cosmopolitan. If I go downtown, I visit the harbour to see the tall ships and the ferries, and to admire the modern architecture such as the Opera House or the new Astrup Fearnley Museum on the water’s edge.
Jo Nesbo
