Gus Van Sant

When I was initially charged I still thought I was not guilty because I had followed the rules.
Andrew Fastow
There are no rules in live television.
Harsha Bhogle
The truth is that many people set rules to keep from making decisions.
Mike Krzyzewski
I think the biggest reason I was able to express myself and not be intimidated was by not having a mother. For example, mothers teach you manners. And I absolutely did not learn any of those rules and regulations.
Madonna Ciccone
I’m an untrained musician. Untrained musicians don’t really have any music theory, they don’t have a lot of rules. We break the rules, but it’s mostly because we don’t know what the rules are. It’s easy for us to go to certain places, so I’m not surprised that a lot of people were amused by my songwriting style.
Frank Black
Imagination has rules, but we can only guess what they are.
Mason Cooley
Baseball is a game of race, creed, and color. The race is to first base. The creed is the rules of the game. The color? Well, the home team wears white uniforms, and the visiting team wears gray.
Joe Garagiola
Plot, rules, nor even poetry, are not half so great beauties in tragedy or comedy as a just imitation of nature, of character, of the passions and their operations in diversified situations.
Horace Walpole
I am ready to fight according to the rules, and I ask for the opportunity to prove myself.
Yingluck Shinawatra
Those looking for ideology in the White House should consider this: For the men who rule our world, rules are for other people.
Naomi Klein
The NCAA has to establish their own rules and enforce their own rules.
Roger Goodell
I didn’t want to write a biographie romancee especially since I already write novels, nor did I want to challenge the rules of the biography game, arbitrary as those rules might be.
Edmund White
The great principle of Western society is that competition rules here as it rules in everything else. The best man – that is to say, the strongest and cleverest – is likely to get the best woman, in the sense of the most beautiful person.
Lafcadio Hearn
Americans are very big about loving the dog first, so when you tell them you have to set rules and limitations, a lot of people believe it’s going to hurt their feelings. They’re actually looking for you to be the pack leader.
Cesar Millan
Washington should revive international efforts begun during the Clinton administration to pressure countries with dangerously loose banking regulations to adopt and enforce stricter rules.
Kit Bond
Sometimes with 'The New Yorker,' they have grammar rule

Sometimes with ‘The New Yorker,’ they have grammar rules that just don’t feel right in my mouth.
David Sedaris
People who cling rigidly to gender binaries are more than welcome to. But for a lot of young people, we’re seeing that our gender roles don’t have to be dictated by a set of rules made by society. We can do whatever feels natural to us.
Courtney Act
Computer science inverts the normal. In normal science, you’re given a world, and your job is to find out the rules. In computer science, you give the computer the rules, and it creates the world.
Alan Kay
It’s not wise to violate rules until you know how to observe them.
T. S. Eliot
I felt like the luckiest kid in the world. And I was. I was growing up middle-class in a time when growing up middle-class in America meant there would be jobs for my parents, good schools for me to prepare myself for a career, and, if I worked hard and played by the rules, a chance for me to do anything I wanted.
Al Franken
We will reduce the tax burden, simplify tax rules, and make life easier for those who want to produce, do business, invest, and create jobs.
Jair Bolsonaro
I was the girl in the black leather jacket with the black fingernails, picked up after school by guys with loud cars and motorcycles. I carried straight-A grades, but I had a little trouble with rules. I tended to have a bit of an authority problem.
Melissa Marr
When I was teaching at the University of Tehran we were struggling against the implementation of the revolution rules.
Azar Nafisi
Sometimes there is dogma in baking and sometimes there is not – you just have to know when to break the rules and when to follow them.
Claire Saffitz
Imagination rules the world.
Napoleon Bonaparte
Principles and rules are intended to provide a thinking man with a frame of reference.
Carl von Clausewitz
The story grew, got way bigger than the contest rules called for, and next thing I knew I had a book.
Leslie Banks
America rules the world – by force.
Harry Browne
I had a list of 10 rules when we started ‘Strong Island,’ and one of them was, ‘Yance will never appear on camera with sync sound.’
Yance Ford
The general will rules in society as the private will governs each separate individual.
Maximilien Robespierre
Sometimes I wish that there were a way to let people know that just because I live in a world without rules, and in a life that is lawless, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t hurt so bad the morning after.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
I can relax with bums because I am a bum. I don’t like laws, morals, religions, rules. I don’t like to be shaped by society.
Charles Bukowski
The frustration of being ordered around by somebody to do something – everyone can relate to that. I think Beetle represents that – the common man caught in that morass of rules and regulations. I don’t even think of it as an army strip… it’s a world anyone can understand.
Mort Walker
Corporate governance should be done more through principles than rules.
Adi Godrej
Mormons… are so strong, they can handle wealth, they are confident. I think it is because they are not bogged down by rules for equality, but have a firmly defined system of relative status and responsible command.
Mary Douglas
Let’s build a country of opportunities, where everybody is equal before the law and where the rules of the game are honest and transparent, and the same for everyone.
Volodymyr Zelensky
You’re a Catholic in Italy when you’re born, it’s unthinkable to stop being Catholic. You just take the rules a lot more seriously, because it pervades your culture.
Andrew Greeley
Far be it from me to force anyone into either chess or dressage, but if you choose to do so yourself, in my opinion there is only one way: follow the rules.
Lars von Trier
The bed is now as public as the dinner table and governed by the same rules of formal confrontation.
Angela Carter
Obamacare comes to more than two thousand pages of rules, mandates, taxes, fees, and fines that have no place in a free country.
Paul Ryan
In their rules there was only one clause: Do what you will.
Francois Rabelais
Children should have enough freedom to be themselves – once they’ve learned the rules.
Anna Quindlen
But if, on the other hand, we should be justified in rejecting it, if there testified on oath, then, supposing our rules of evidence to be sound, we may be excused if we hesitate elsewhere to give it credence.
Simon Greenleaf
If I am talking to a youngster, I coach him what I feel is best for him to bowl, how to hold the ball, how to bowl certain things, and how to bowl to certain batsmen, how to position himself. I never talk to them about the rules.
Garfield Sobers
You don’t need to stick to tough rules or overnight changes; you need not rely on hardcore discipline that makes you hate your life. You need only focus on progress, not perfection. Lean in to the process of losing weight, and it will happen easily.
Kathy Freston
If you write genre fiction, you follow the rules, and you have to follow them because readers expect that.
Yann Martel
War has rules, mud wrestling has rules - politics has n

War has rules, mud wrestling has rules – politics has no rules.
Ross Perot
Unfortunately, these past few years, you can work hard, try to be as successful as possible, follow the rules, and President Barack Obama will do everything he can to stand in your way.
Nikki Haley
Accounting rules give financial institutions flexibility about when they choose to recognize venture capital profits.
Alex Berenson
I think guys who are rebels and make their own rules are appealing.
Leighton Meester
The old rules and the old methods of winning are gone.
Dick Morris
I began taking liberties a long time ago; now it is standard practice for most directors to ignore the rules.
Michelangelo Antonioni
There’s so many strict ideas and rules, whether it’s from religion or it’s just generations and generations.
Ashton Sanders
I’ve always embraced failure as a noble pursuit. It allows you to be anti whatever anyone wants you to be, and to break all the rules.
Malcolm Mclaren
Perhaps one of the only positive pieces of advice that I was ever given was that supplied by an old courtier who observed: Only two rules really count. Never miss an opportunity to relieve yourself; never miss a chance to sit down and rest your feet.
Edward VIII
When it comes to international trade, the question is, who is going to write the rules, the United States or China? And my vote is the United States.
John Barrasso
I think that the whole point of music is that there shouldn’t be rules. There is no right or wrong. And the fact that I may not like that piece of music and you may… The validation is in the fact that somebody gets something from it.
Lorne Balfe
Beauty has no boundaries, no rules, no colors. Beauty is like a religion. You can include everything inside it.
Alessandro Michele
In the ‘Nike Economy,’ there are no standards, no borders and no rules. Clearly, the global economy isn’t working for workers in China and Indonesia and Burma any more than it is for workers here in the United States.
John Sweeney
Rules are important, but they’re temporary and they’re always supposed to be changed.
John Lydon
The Internet is a giant ‘lab experiment’ for corporate America, and those companies that recognise this and play well within the rules of ambiguity and fluidity will survive and win.
Dan Pena
I believe young people need rules. They will respond to discipline.
David Starkey
Everybody has to look after their own economy and follow the rules.
Tarja Halonen
‘State’ can be a word that is a noun or a verb or an adverb – it’s kind of why I chose that title. It’s not to confound the audience but to keep me from painting myself into a cul-de-sac in the early stages of making a record by having too high concept or having some really strict set of rules I have to adhere to.
Todd Rundgren
Every relation forms its own defined and non-defined rules.
Gautam Gambhir
Today the tyrant rules not by club or fist, but disguised as a market researcher, he shepherds his flocks in the ways of utility and comfort.
Marshall McLuhan
When I started acting, my parents gave me three rules: I had to stay good in school, stay the kid they always knew I was, and I had to have fun. If I wasn’t doing those three things, then I couldn’t do acting anymore.
Shailene Woodley
My life hasn’t been conventional and it hasn’t been linear. I’ve had to make it up as I’ve gone along, which has taught me a lot. If you don’t accept the obvious options that are laid out for you, it’s up to you to work out where you’re going and to create your own specific rules and goals.
Beth Ditto
The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.
John Madden
I don’t make any rules.
Tiger Woods
Allow me a bit of philosophy here… We started tele skiing as a rebellion against rules.
Paul Parker
Although many texters enjoy breaking linguistic rules, they also know they need to be understood.
David Crystal
You are remembered for the rules you break.
Douglas MacArthur
I just like playing with makeup and clothes – so I really don’t feel like there are rules, and if there are rules, then I think it’s up to you to break them.
Kesha
A hedonistic lifestyle contrary to all the rules and expectations of Islam is not an unusual precursor to radicalisation: in fact, some young radicals see joining in the jihad as a way of achieving redemption for past sins.
Deeyah Khan
One of the trickiest things about ‘Game of Thrones’ is just seeding those first couple of episodes with that basic information that people need to know, both about the world and the ground rules of the world, and the relationships between the characters, as far as who means what to whom and why.
D. B. Weiss
If no one ever broke the rules, then we’d never advance.
Simon Sinek
There's nothing that irritates Americans more than the

There’s nothing that irritates Americans more than the fact that some members of Congress think they are entitled to their own set of rules. And it’s true – too many people in Washington live in an alternate reality.
Claire McCaskill
I don’t care about the rules. In fact, if I don’t break the rules at least 10 times in every song then I’m not doing my job properly.
Jeff Beck
I have faith in the market when we get the rules right.
Kenneth Lay
It’s much better to have rules that we can actually live within. And absolute prohibitions, generally, are not the kind of rules that countries would live within.
Alan Dershowitz
If I’d observed all the rules, I’d never have got anywhere.
Marilyn Monroe
I don’t want to be fake. I’m just being me. And I have the power to break stereotypes and whatever useless rules that society puts on us.
Bad Bunny
Rule A: Don’t. Rule A1: Rule A doesn’t exist. Rule A2: Do not discuss the existence or non-existence of Rules A, A1 or A2.
R. D. Laing
Essex is an amazing county, with its own set of rules. It’s a completely different world.
Denise Van Outen
Rules are for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men.
Harry Day
The perennial conviction that those who work hard and play by the rules will be rewarded with a more comfortable present and a stronger future for their children faces assault from just about every direction. That great enemy of democratic capitalism, economic inequality, is real and growing.
Jon Meacham
I started to let go and seeing that there are no rules.
Alycia Debnam-Carey
A mortgage transaction is very complex, very complicated, and very localized – the rules are not just by state but by county, sometimes even by municipality.
Dan Gilbert
I think my biggest trait is to play extremely hard within the rules of the game.
Patrick Beverley
We can’t give excessive, unfettered power to a president to act alone, to bind an entire country to a set of principles, a set of rules that the president, him or herself, makes.
Mike Lee
If you’re willing to work hard and play by the rules, you should be able to move up.
Julian Castro
Believing we know what makes prosperity work, ignoring the nature of the actual prosperity all around, we change the rules within which the Internet revolution lives. These changes will end the revolution.
Lawrence Lessig
I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny… To me, those are people who think the rules don’t apply to them.
Alec Baldwin
I’m learning to play by the rules. I sort of hate to think of it that way, but that’s how it is. I’m really learning to function out there and in such a way that I don’t need to drink.
Dana Plato
You’re not going to eliminate concussions. Anytime you hit your head, you have a chance of getting a concussion, in any sport, too. I think we have to learn more about it. Part of it is rules, part of it is equipment, part of it is medical studies, knowing more about the brain.
John Madden
I was a good kid. My parents laid rules out for me, and I followed them.
Heidi Klum
What’s very important is that we build a space that matters in the world, one that operates according to democratic rules, and that small and large countries enjoy a good relationship.
Jean-Pierre Raffarin
I am an undisputed gangster. To me, that means playing by my own rules.
Katherine Ryan
The latest rule is: you cannot have protectionism – otherwise you will get a world war. Other rules say you cannot have collective ideas that involve the surrender of the individual to the group – otherwise, you get totalitarianism or, even worse, religion.
Adam Curtis
The best rules to form a young man, are, to talk little, to hear much, to reflect alone upon what has passed in company, to distrust one’s own opinions, and value others that deserve it.
William Temple
I define nothing. Not beauty, not patriotism. I take each thing as it is, without prior rules about what it should be.
Bob Dylan
There is no actual need to tighten voter ID rules: there have been extraordinarily few instances of people committing fraud at the polls.
Adam Cohen
Peace rules the day, where reason rules the mind.
Wilkie Collins
Sports teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose-it teaches you about life.
Billie Jean King
The rules of morality are not the conclusion of our reason.
David Hume
You’re not allowed to step out of whatever the rules are, politically, or socially, and they’ll get you for it, they’ll hunt you down. That’s the really frightening thing.
Timothy West
I think a gentleman is someone who holds the comfort of other people above their own. The instinct to do that is inside every good man, I believe. The rules about opening doors and buying dinner and all of that other ‘gentleman’ stuff is a chess game, especially these days.
Anna Kendrick
Therefore, a person should first be changed by a teache

Therefore, a person should first be changed by a teacher’s instructions, and guided by principles of ritual. Only then can he observe the rules of courtesy and humility, obey the conventions and rules of society, and achieve order.
Xun Kuang
I had an advantage over a lot of people who had gone to school and earned degrees in writing and had learned the rules for writing, so to speak. My style was just to tell a story but to tell it well, and that has worked out for me so far.
Robert Kurson
Politics is a dirty game. We have our rules in boxing. In politics, no rules. Especially a young democracy like Ukraine. It’s more like MMA.
Vitali Klitschko
Without social cohesion, the human race wouldn’t be here: We’re not formidable enough to survive without the tactics, rules and strategies that allow people to work together.
Peter Guber
Our school education ignores, in a thousand ways, the rules of healthy development.
Elizabeth Blackwell
Growing up, I wasn’t allowed dolls, and my brothers weren’t allowed guns. I inherited my brothers’ clothes. I was never dressed in pink, and they were never dressed in blue; there were none of those rules that people still bizarrely subscribe to.
Natascha McElhone
Only in baseball can a team player be a pure individualist first and a team player second, within the rules and spirit of the game.
Branch Rickey
Growing up in an old-fashioned Bengali Hindu family and going to a convent school run by stern Irish nuns, I was brought up to revere rules. Without rules, there was only anarchy.
Bharati Mukherjee
If a man achieves victory over this body, who in the world can exercise power over him? He who rules himself rules over the whole world.
Vinoba Bhave
If I have to produce movies, direct movies, whatever to change the way Hollywood treats older women, I’ll do it. If I have to bend the rules, I will. If I have to break them, I will.
Naomi Watts
For decades, my identity was political, but I’ve come to understand that there’s no political solution when you’re dealing with someone else’s rules.
John Trudell
I know what women look good in. I don’t think the rules ever change.
Michael Kors
As basic rules of a language must be practiced continually, and therefore are never fixed, so exercises toward distinct color effects never are done or over. New and different cases will be discovered time and again.
Josef Albers
The only rules comedy can tolerate are those of taste, and the only limitations those of libel.
James Thurber
If you want to be a modern citizen of the world, you have to be minimally capable in technology. It’s a new literacy test. Technology rules your outcome in life. And software is making a lot of decisions in our lives.
Daniel Suarez
The hardest thing about being in this business is just being able to be yourself. People act like there’s this one set of rules to follow to be a pop star and I think, ‘Well, you say I’m a pop star, so maybe that’s not true.’
Kelly Clarkson
Integrity has no need of rules.
Albert Camus
I don’t do stand-up anymore. There are no rules in stand-up comedy. Journalists follow plenty of rules.
Jason Whitlock
I love good food but I follow strict rules the days I perform.
Jose Carreras
Women make natural anarchists and revolutionaries because they’ve always been second-class citizens, kinda having had to claw their way up. I mean, who made up all the rules in the culture? Men – white male corporate society. So why wouldn’t a woman want to rebel against that?
Kim Gordon
Los Angeles is much like Mumbai, the film industry rules the city over most other professions, so it feels like home.
Abhay Deol
I mean one of the basic rules when you’re acting is that you mustn’t stand in judgement on a character, you mustn’t say Hitler was a bad man because you can’t act in that way.
Janet Suzman
The wastefulness of indiscriminate plunder impoverishes a country, while it adds nothing to the support of the army; policy, as well as humanity to the inhabitants, dictates that all levies should be made according to established rules, and under the charge of discreet and competent officers.
Ambrose Burnside
The attractive idea that we can now have a parliament of man with authority to control the conduct of nations by legislation or an international police force with power to enforce national conformity to rules of right conduct is a counsel of perfection.
Elihu Root
In the Orthodox religion, you don’t draw the human figure. It’s against the rules.
Paul Rand
If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.
Bob Marley
The brain sure as hell doesn’t work by somebody programming in rules.
Geoffrey Hinton
The problem stems from the ADHD. The nutty behavior. You have got all this energy going and you can’t focus on anything. It’s like games at school – like football. I couldn’t play because I couldn’t understand the rules. I couldn’t get offside. I just couldn’t take in the rules.
Shaun Ryder
We have to be careful about creating more rules.
Paul Parker
We must ensure that more binding, durable, and enforceable fiscal rules go hand-in-hand with funding certainty for countries pursuing sound and sustainable economic policies. We need to keep pushing forward towards a comprehensive solution to the challenges of the eurozone.
Enda Kenny
Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball, the rules and realities of the game – and do it by watching first some high school or small-town teams.
Jacques Barzun
To insure peace of mind ignore the rules and regulation

To insure peace of mind ignore the rules and regulations.
George Ade
People always say that Randy Moss can’t stick to the rules. Even my own rules.
Randy Moss
There are only two rules for being successful: one, figure out exactly what you want to do, and two, do it.
Mario Cuomo
No tendency is quite so strong in human nature as the desire to lay down rules of conduct for other people.
William Howard Taft
It’s like the Wild West, the Internet. There are no rules.
Steven Wright
As Bromberger observed, rules are understood to be elements of the computational systems that determine the sound and meaning of the infinite array of expressions of a language; the information so derived is accessed by other systems in language use.
Noam Chomsky
I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
Robert A. Heinlein
Family responsibility, yes, and always. Family bankruptcy due to the cruel rules of government, no.
Barbara Mikulski
I don’t live by all these rigid, weird rules that make me feel all fenced in. I just like the way that I feel like, and that makes me feel very free.
Taylor Swift
The place was crawling with youngsters. It was good, because the kids were good. I can’t make a general assumption. Again, you’re probably getting, as a general theme from me, that I don’t make a lot of broad, sweeping rules about movies.
Adam Arkin
Just as I know the usual rules of law enforcement, I also know the exceptions and invoke those frequently. I don’t feel a need to bog the reader down with an explanation of why the procedures are realistic, as long as I know that there is, in fact, an explanation.
Alafair Burke
Being a Jehovah’s Witness, it was really a trip. We had to go from door to door, and we weren’t allowed to associate with the other children. It was a lot of rules.
Sherri Shepherd
Historically, privacy was almost implicit, because it was hard to find and gather information. But in the digital world, whether it’s digital cameras or satellites or just what you click on, we need to have more explicit rules – not just for governments but for private companies.
Bill Gates
There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
As a DJ, people expect a certain sound and a certain danceability for the music. As a producer, I really like to let go of any rules that may exist.
Armin van Buuren
My dad was the only son from his entire family to come to America, and I was his only son. We had come to the States to achieve security and success for our family. Rules were simple: No fun, no friends, no girls. Go to school, come home, and study.
Hasan Minhaj
The assumption that nature is all there is, and that nature has been governed by the same rules at all times and places, makes it possible for natural science to be confident that it can explain such things as how life began.
Phillip E. Johnson
I don’t really know that there’s any real rules for songwriting.
Amos Lee
Be polite; write diplomatically; even in a declaration of war one observes the rules of politeness.
Otto von Bismarck
I’m not defined by where I came from. I never took part in the rules and hatred that sometimes go along with religion. But if my parents are happy with what they believe, then I’m happy to stay out of their way. We agree to disagree.
Katy Perry
The rules of drama are very much separate from the properties of life. I think that’s especially true of Shakespeare.
Aaron Sorkin
It is in middles that extremes clash, where ambiguity restlessly rules.
John Updike
Well, I’m a runner, and I have to run with Secret Service – even though they can run twice as fast. It took me a while to get used to running with them, because I love the solitary aspect of it. So I have two rules. First, I can’t hear their feet. And second, I can’t see their shadows.
Jill Biden
Every great political campaign rewrites the rules; devising a new way to win is what gives campaigns a comparative advantage against their foes.
John Podhoretz
The rules of improvisation apply beautifully to life. Never say no – you have to be interested to be interesting, and your job is to support your partners.
Scott Adsit
You get the feeling that many of my guests feel that the French language gives them entry into a more cultivated, more intelligent world, more highly civilised too, with rules.
Bernard Pivot
A pie dough comes together exactly like a biscuit only there is very, very little liquid and no leavening involved. Other than that, the same rules apply. My best advice: handle the dough as little as possible.
Alton Brown
What I tell my kids is, ‘I’m preparing you for college and for life. So, having independence, knowing how to set your own boundaries, figuring out how to make that balance. We still have screen-time rules.’
Michelle Obama
Engagement with young people is always a refreshing break with routine. It’s also a reminder of how we need to constantly keep our thinking agile and unencumbered by traditional rules.
Frans van Houten
We must have the time to create strict rules so that property is not sold by Communist managers for a low price. They often get payments under the table to sell to the first bidder. This does not build public support for a market economy.
Vaclav Klaus
I know there is a Supreme Being who rules the affairs of men and whose goodness and mercy have always followed the American people, and I know He will not turn from us now if we humbly and reverently seek His powerful aid.
Grover Cleveland
Although our rules and laws are now officially colorbli

Although our rules and laws are now officially colorblind, they operate to discriminate in a grossly disproportionate fashion.
Michelle Alexander
Peace rules the day, where reason rules the mind.
Wilkie Collins
The Gun Control Act of 1968 was an attempt to impose order. It set up the Federal Firearms License (FFL) system; gun stores would have to become licensed, and they would have to follow certain rules. Felons, illegal immigrants, and crazy people would be prohibited from buying guns.
Jeanne Marie Laskas
I love having my hands in the dirt. It is never a science and always an art. There are no rules. And if it comes down to me versus that weed I’m trying to pull out of the ground that doesn’t want to come out? I know I’ll win.
Matthew McConaughey
Fall in love with a dog, and in many ways you enter a new orbit, a universe that features not just new colors but new rituals, new rules, a new way of experiencing attachment.
Caroline Knapp
Thus, anybody who follows this nature and gives way its states will be led into quarrels and conflicts, and go against the conventions and rules of society, and will end up a criminal.
Xun Kuang
The rules of wildlife are simple and clear, which is not the case for men.
Laurent Baheux
Everyone else thinks I’m a nonfiction writer. I think it’s because my nonfiction is easier to find. But I write both in equal measure. I love writing fiction because I can totally lose myself, and I get to make up the rules of the world that I’m writing.
Roxane Gay
Unity is the most important thing on the road to stamping out terror. You need global rules of law and order, and they have to be enforced. Start with that principle.
Chris Matthews
I try to be careful because technology changes so much over the years. But some things don’t change. Kids and parents have disagreements, kids try to manipulate, parents try to sit down with rules and regs. That part never changes.
Paula Danziger
The values by which we are to survive are not rules for just and unjust conduct, but are those deeper illuminations in whose light justice and injustice, good and evil, means and ends are seen in fearful sharpness of outline.
Jacob Bronowski
Fame is really strange. One day you’re not famous, and then the next day you are, and the odd thing is that you know intellectually that nothing in the world is different. What mattered to you yesterday are the same things that matter today, and the rules all still apply – yet everyone looks at you differently.
Matt Damon
There are no rules when it comes to love.
Taylor Swift
Jesus had a universal concern for those who suffered that transcended the rules of the ancient world.
John Ortberg
It occurred to me, when I was old enough to make rules of my own, that they should be fair and simple.
Moon Unit Zappa
German businessmen are overwhelmed by the high cost of doing business. Inflexible rules, enforced by a burgeoning bureaucracy, discourage entrepreneurship.
Suzanne Fields
I sympathize with the zombies and am not even sure they are villains. To me they are this earth-changing thing. God or the devil changed the rules, and dead people are not staying dead.
George A. Romero
Unaware of the absurdity of it, we introduce our own petty household rules into the economy of the universe for which the life of generations, peoples, of entire planets, has no importance in relation to the general development.
Alexander Herzen
You just go for it and see what works. There are no rules.
Joey McIntyre
When you look at Yahoo Answers, there can be a lot of garbage. But if you’re careful about the rules and supporting good contributions, over time you can get better and better, like Wikipedia.
Adam D’Angelo
Setting regulatory certainty is very important for bitcoin. I’m opposed to the regulations, but the bitcoin businesses need to know the rules of the game in order to move ahead.
Roger Ver
We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.
Michelle Obama
History shows the power-grab in every religion once it gets organised. And then it’s people making you do things that you don’t agree with and setting the rules. But it does mean something to me to believe that we are not alone – the human animal is quite a scary thing, left on its own.
Margrethe Vestager
The many questions about the bombing of Yugoslavia by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation – meaning primarily the United States – come down to two fundamental issues: ‘What are the accepted and applicable ‘rules of world order,’ and how do these apply in the case of Kosovo?’
Noam Chomsky
Every society and religion has rules, for both have moral laws. And the essence of morality consists, as in art, of drawing the line somewhere.
Huston Smith
My look is relaxed, and while I love fashion, I don’t obsess about it. I don’t have set rules when it comes to dressing, and I don’t mind where my clothes are from.
Donna Air
‘A Rogue by Any Other Name’ is the first book in the ‘Rules of Scoundrels’ series, centered on a legendary pre-Victorian casino and her four scandalous aristocratic owners.
Sarah MacLean
Obedience keeps the rules. Love knows when to break them.
Anthony de Mello
I don’t live by a lot of society’s rules; I can’t pattern myself after the herd.
Kim Basinger
The U.S. basically wrote the rules and created the institutions of globalisation.
Joseph Stiglitz
The team needs a leader to handle everything with rules and constant stability. Mourinho is the ideal man for that job, and we are delighted about it.
Sergio Ramos

I’m a fighter. We come from the beginning, no gloves, no rules, no time limits.
Royce Gracie
We know that we cannot live together without rules which tell us what is right and what is wrong, what is permitted and what is prohibited. We know that it is law which enables men to live together, that creates order out of chaos. We know that law is the glue that holds civilization together.
Robert Kennedy
You can read a dozen different textbooks or how-to manuals that will tell you the basic rules of what makes a story – a beginning, a middle, and an end.
Len Wein
I understand the rules of Superman – not necessarily better than anyone else – but better than a normal filmmaker would. After doing ‘Watchmen’ and digging that deep into the why of superheroes, when Superman is presented to you, I felt like I was in a unique position to say ‘I get this guy. I know what this is.’
Zack Snyder
The Security Council represents the situation from 1945 – you had the Allies who won the war who occupied that. The defeated guys – the Germans and Japan – were out. The occupied countries had no voice. That was fine in ’45, but today, Germany rules Europe, frankly. They are driving Europe but have no voice.
Mo Ibrahim
My mother’s rules had to do with feminine deportment, so I never played hard enough to break a toy or muddy my dress. My father’s rules had to do with never shaming the family by even a hint of scandal, and not providing business rivals with an opportunity to kidnap me or throw acid in my face.
Bharati Mukherjee
I’m not trying to follow a set of rules and stuff. I’m just living my life.
Joel Osteen
Many dogs grow up without rules or boundaries. They need exercise, discipline and affection in that order.
Cesar Millan
I use the rules to frustrate the law. But I didn’t set up the ground rules.
F. Lee Bailey
If men make war in slavish obedience to rules, they will fail.
Ulysses S. Grant
Global warming, like Marxism, is a political theory of actions, demanding compliance with its rules.
Paul Johnson
The citizen is becoming a pawn in a game where nobody knows the rules, where everybody consequently doubts that there are rules at all, and where the vocabulary has been diminished to such an extent that nobody is even sure what the game is all about.
Andrew Eldritch
I hope that through my work, artists will take some chances, break some rules, and make art that comes from inside of them. I would like to be remembered as a kind person, a great Mom, and a bit unruly – in a good way!
Angela Cartwright
I just want people to know the reality, and I want people to see the world as it really is – the world is our playground, and we can do anything we want to do on it. Everyone else needs to see it that way – there are no real rules.
Hopsin
I see myself as a true modernist. Even when I do a traditional gown, I give it a modern twist. I go to the past for research. I need to know what came before so I can break the rules.
Vera Wang
The Yankees have strict rules. You can have a mustache but no other facial hair.
Derek Jeter
The trouble with referees is that they know the rules, but they do not know the game.
Bill Shankly
There aren’t any rules, as far as anything-and that applies especially to writing songs, whatever gets the point across. So you’re just kind of brought up to feel-in any field, if you say you can do it, do it. There it is.
Guy Clark
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
We grew up Amish, but my parents left the religion when I was a child. The Amish have lots of rules, and my dad thought many people in the faith were hypocritical because they’d tell others not to do something and then do it themselves.
Verne Troyer
I’m a communist, man. I’m going to break the rules.
Skip Bayless
The middle of ‘America’s Women’ is about the Civil War, and how women, black and white, confronted slavery and abolition. As in every other period of crisis, the rules of sexual decorum were suspended due to emergency.
Gail Collins
It is a point where our old models must be discarded and a new reality rules.
Vernor Vinge
Writing has laws of perspective, of light and shade just as painting does, or music. If you are born knowing them, fine. If not, learn them. Then rearrange the rules to suit yourself.
Truman Capote
There will always be a rule. There will be people who break the rules. There will be consequences. We fundamentally think these things will be true for a time. The question becomes, What are the consequences? Who enforces the consequences? What are the worst consequences?
DeRay Mckesson
Writing a song is like playing a series of downs in football: Lots of rules, timing is crucial, lots of boundaries, lots of protective gear, lots of stopping and starting.
Christine Lavin
What scared me in that debate is that it’s not about the ownership rules at all. The vast majority of people don’t even know what the rules say, to be perfectly candid. Name all six of them.
Michael K. Powell
No one painted a more accurate picture of military depredation than Vergil. Inspired though he was by the Latin spirit and by his pride in Rome, he nevertheless glorified Rome’s true mission as one of providing the world with the rules of peace and justice.
Ernesto Teodoro Moneta
I published ‘Rules of Civility’ while I was still working. It became a best seller. I was working on this book, and then I decided to retire.
Amor Towles
There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about.
Helen Frankenthaler
We have our Upside Down document which describes its rules and its mythology in quite a bit of detail, but I think we’re just going to slowly parse that out, and maybe not even fully use all of it.
Ross Duffer
Community organizing is all about building grassroots s

Community organizing is all about building grassroots support. It’s about identifying the people around you with whom you can create a common, passionate cause. And it’s about ignoring the conventional wisdom of company politics and instead playing the game by very different rules.
Tom Peters
I had always broken the rules.
Lauren Hutton
But the Republic has its rules and it must not tolerate any abuse of them.
Jean-Pierre Raffarin
Rape, mutilation, abuse, and theft are the natural outcome of a world in which force rules, in which human beings are objects.
Chris Hedges
Since I’ve been a part of this league, I can’t recall when they’ve actually made rules that have actually helped to improve the game of basketball.
B. J. Armstrong
Raising a child is a little like Picasso’s work; in the beginning he did very conventional representational things. Cubism came after he had the rules down pat.
Anna Quindlen
The American people expect more from Congress. They expect fiscal responsibility and common sense. They expect us to return to the pay-as-you-go budget rules that we had enacted in the past that helped us establish a surplus, however briefly.
Melissa Bean
Anytime a member of Congress wants to travel abroad – which we do from time to time as part of our official duties – we are required to check with the House Committee on Ethics as to whether the trip follows the ethics rules by which federally elected officials are bound. Not so with Supreme Court justices.
Mike Quigley
There’s something liberating about watching someone not following the rules.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
In some ways, with the security challenges this country has faced, we have had to put in rules and regulations for business to be able to sustain their growth and create jobs.
Wayne Allard
We started off trying to set up a small anarchist community, but people wouldn’t obey the rules.
Alan Bennett
The thing about parenting rules is there aren’t any. That’s what makes it so difficult.
Ewan McGregor
Beauty has no boundaries, no rules, no colors. Beauty is like a religion. You can include everything inside it.
Alessandro Michele
The Open Internet principles were not legal rules adopted by the FCC; they were effectively a press statement posted on the FCC website.
Marvin Ammori
Illegal immigrants are beginning to comprise a black market class of workers in our society, jeopardizing the financial health of companies which play by the rules, while themselves vulnerable to the exploitation by those willing to take advantage of their illegal status.
Spencer Bachus
Back in the days of the colonies, there were rules that were very good.
Princess Michael of Kent
Language is not merely a set of unrelated sounds, clauses, rules, and meanings; it is a total coherent system of these integrating with each other, and with behavior, context, universe of discourse, and observer perspective.
Kenneth L. Pike
Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.
Carl Jung
There are two golden rules for an orchestra: start together and finish together. The public doesn’t give a damn what goes on in between.
Thomas Beecham
Could we teach taste or genius by rules, they would be no longer taste and genius.
Joshua Reynolds
Just as the common law derives from ancient precedents – judges’ decisions – rather than statutes, baseball’s codes are the game’s distilled mores. Their unchanged purpose is to show respect for opponents and the game. In baseball, as in the remainder of life, the most important rules are unwritten. But not unenforced.
George Will
I consider myself a law-abiding person. But I’m exhausted. I don’t know where to put the bottles, newspapers, cans, and other stuff for garbage pickup outside my house. The rules are so thick you need someone from M.I.T. to explain them.
Bill O’Reilly
Rules about public sanitation are a simple and familiar example. Without them, a city can’t be a healthy place to live; but these rules don’t just happen. The rules for a city are different from the ones for a village, but as a village slowly gets bigger, a city may be stuck with the rules of the village.
Paul Romer
Not one single country in the world is dependent for their trade wholly on WTO guidelines – they aren’t ‘rules,’ because the sanctions for breaching the guidelines are puny.
Andrew Adonis, Baron Adonis
For you to ask advice on the rules of love is no better than to ask advice on the rules of madness.
Terence
President Obama is a principled man who has worked hard to put healthcare and a good education in the reach of millions of Americans and believes that everyone who works hard and plays by the rules, should have a fair shot at the American dream.
