It’s such a paradox. You come from this place where you want fame; you don’t want to be bourgeois, but you want to be successful. You want to be accepted, but you also want to be going against the grain. You want to be on the outside, but you want to be on the inside.

Gail Collins

Marcos Maidana
What I realized the moment I got to Oxford was that someone like me could not really be part of it. I mean, I could make a success there, I could even be perhaps accepted into it, but I would never feel it was my place. It’s the summit of something else. It’s distilled Englishness.

Susan Estrich
The Porsche was just a vehicle to get to another place. I used it to change people’s perceptions of me. I had grown up really middle class. USC was filled with elitists, richies who would go skiing every weekend. So I pretended like I was part of that world – to be accepted.
Brian Grazer
It’s great to be able to find a way to release your music and do what you want to do artistically and not have to just worry about being accepted by the major label industry.
Kate Nash
Actually, the notion of what is acceptable for a moral government to do seems to have eroded in some ways since 9-11.

Gail Simone
The demarcation between an art house film and an entertainer has blurred, only because a larger section of the audience has accepted such realistic films.

Democratic accountability means that governments must b

Democratic accountability means that governments must be popularly accepted, with citizens empowered to replace corrupt or incompetent rulers.

Carlton Cuse
Maybe at some subconscious level, things are done to upset somebody – part of me continues to see no valid reason for many of the accepted rules of design.
David Carson
One of the biggest development issues in the world is the education of girls. In the United States and Europe, it has been accepted, but not in Africa and the developing countries.
Harri Holkeri

Michael O’Rielly
Africa is a continent in flames. And deep down, if we really accepted that Africans were equal to us, we would all do more to put the fire out. We’re standing around with watering cans, when what we really need is the fire brigade.
Bono
Anger clearly has its proper place at work, which is neither wholly absent nor ever present. The manager who is an emotional blank is just as hard to work for as the volcanic boss, and both can do great harm by setting an unhelpful example for what kind of emotional expression is expected and accepted.
Julian Baggini
When I was in first grade, the kids called me ‘fatso.’ It hurt, but the way I overcame it was to outrun every kid in the class. So I developed a thick skin, and athletics became my way of performing and being accepted.
Billy Casper
If the adjustment made by a court can be accepted or not, it will be refused whenever the men can gain more by continuing the strike, with whatever of violence that involves.

Mark Fisher
I am standing in solidarity with decent Remain voters who respected the rules and accepted the result and are as appalled by Parliament’s undemocratic antics as the most ardent Brexiteer.
Claire Fox
You should always be prepared to win. But as much as I tell myself that, I’ve accepted another kind of role. Racism undercuts expectation, something like that. I’m not saying that to excuse myself from anything, but I’ve lived all this time, and things don’t happen.
Ruby Dee
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
Bindi Irwin
Divisions of the kind were fashionable at that time, and it was so easy to stifle one’s need to help by deciding that help could neither be accepted nor understood.
Janet Frame
I was accepted to multiple fashion schools. But I had two kids when I was a teenager. My kids’ mom already had two kids when she was still in high school. So I had to be in the streets early. Instead of going to fashion school, I took the street route.

Since the beginning of the internet era, it has been pretty widely accepted that when you join an online service, whatever data you put into it belongs to you.
Daniel Lyons
Compared with my brother, I always felt like Richard III, some clever humpbacked thing who surpassed him in the end. He was the one who read books, but I became the writer. He painted and drew, but I was the one who got accepted by the High School of Music and Art.
Jerome Charyn
I think women were just accepted more as songwriters when they sat on a stool with a guitar and had scruffy hair.

Lisa Stansfield
However, it required some years before the scientific community in general accepted that flexibility and disorder are very relevant molecular properties also in other systems.

Chris Elliott
I acknowledge that I’m really fortunate to have found pockets of people all through my life who’ve accepted me.

If bigots oppose gay marriage so vehemently, it must be because marriage is a defining institution for them; gays will never be fully accepted until they can marry and adopt, like anyone else.
Edmund White
It's quite amazing how tattoos in general have been mor

It’s quite amazing how tattoos in general have been more and more accepted.
Lorenzo Lamas
I’ve said before, ‘gymnastics is abusive,’ but now I know it’s not the sport that’s abusive – it’s the culture that was created and accepted and normalized.
Katelyn Ohashi
I am not writing to try and convert people to fundamental Christianity. I am just trying to share my experience, strength and hope, that someone who is as messed up and neurotic and scarred and scared can be fully accepted by our dear Lord, no questions asked.
Anne Lamott
Many of Judy Blume’s books – which I devoured when I was growing up and where I found characters that were believable because they were a lot like me – caused considerable consternation when they were first published, but now they’re widely accepted as an essential part of the children’s literary canon.
Jeff Kinney
My ideas have undergone a process of emergence by emergency. When they are needed badly enough, they are accepted.
R. Buckminster Fuller
After the desperate years of their own war, after six years of repression inside Spain and six years of horror in exile, these people remain intact in spirit. They are armed with a transcendent faith; they have never won, and yet they have never accepted defeat.
Martha Gellhorn
Could a government dare to set out with happiness as its goal? Now that there are accepted scientific proofs, it would be easy to audit the progress of national happiness annually, just as we monitor money and GDP.
Polly Toynbee
I’m just waiting for the moment where it’s accepted that women are just as sexual as men without women having to be overtly sexy just to prove how ‘liberated’ they are.
Marina and the Diamonds
It is not seen as insane when a fighter, under an attack that will inevitable lead to his death, chooses to take his own life first. In fact, this act has been encouraged for centuries, and is accepted even now as an honorable reason to do the deed. How is it any different when you are under attack by your own mind?
Emilie Autumn
I don’t consider myself a fighter first any more like I used to,’ he explained. ‘I was all fight, all fight. And then I met my wife and basically shortly after I was going to church, things like that. Before you know it I was baptized. I accepted Christ as my lord and saviour. And things really changed.
Rory MacDonald
I entirely concur in the propriety of resorting to the sense in which the Constitution was accepted and ratified by the nation. In that sense alone it is the legitimate Constitution.
James Madison
Maybe I was accepted to Harvard only because of my tennis skills, since I definitively had no great academic achievements. I was 17 and only thought about surfing and playing tennis. I had almost never left Rio de Janeiro and had never been to the United States.
Jorge Paulo Lemann
I have never spoken to the president about the Postal Service, other than to congratulate me when I accepted the position.
Louis DeJoy

John Gurdon
Every loss I take, I’ve accepted, and I move on.
Mark Hunt
North Korea aside, most authoritarian governments have already accepted the growth of the Internet culture as inevitable; they have little choice but to find ways to shape it in accord with their own narratives – or risk having their narratives shaped by others.
Evgeny Morozov
If I’m being totally honest, I’d pretty much given up on turning pro. I don’t think I’d totally given up on the dream, but I’d accepted that it probably wasn’t going to happen.
Dwight Gayle
So okay, I accepted, and I realized while working for that concert that I’d been missing something very important and vital to me, and that something was music.
Joseph Jarman
As with the subjects in all of my films, the incentive is left to the subject to determine on their own. I never ask someone why they say yes to me. After all, if you invited someone to join you for dinner, and they accepted your invitation, your next question wouldn’t be, ‘Why are you saying yes?’
R. J. Cutler
Any people has a right to self-determination, and now in Europe the process of diluting national sovereignty in the framework of a united Europe is more accepted.

I feel very accepted, like I never have any slander. I never have any issues. You know, like, when people see me, they respect me. It’s all about how you carry yourself.
Big Freedia
In the 21st century, I think it’s fair to say, homosexuality is more accepted in Britain and it’s wonderful that my generation has been able to grow up with that.
Dan Stevens
Some MPs, some very senior civil servants and others, are basically conspiring – and I use the word deliberately – in order to try and prevent us from leaving the E.U. They have never accepted the verdict of the British people in the referendum.
Mark Francois
In about 9th grade, an English teacher told me I had a talent to act. He said I should audition for a performing arts high school, so I did on a whim. I got accepted. Then I got accepted at the Julliard School, and by then, I was serious about it.
Ving Rhames
We’re still expected to color within the lines of accepted femininity, and women who step out of those lines are usually attacked, whether verbally or physically.
Libba Bray
I was on the lookout for something different, as I was exhausted with the fiction space. When I was asked to host ‘Tujhse Naaraz Nahin Zindagi,’ it was not as an actor but as an individual, and on being explained the concept, I found it interesting and accepted it since it was about real people and real life.
Ashish Sharma
I wanted to be the best football player in the world. That was my dream. Except in Sweden it’s not accepted.
John Guidetti
I used to hate, with a capitol H, making videos. It was nothing but a chore. It was something you had to do to have your music accepted in the visual medium.
Sheena Easton
There were no examples of girls like myself becoming successful actresses. To be an actress in England was a serious, upper-middle class girl’s profession. I just thought I would never be accepted unless I pretended to become somebody I wasn’t.
Tracey Ullman
How do you rate works of genius? Partly by personal inclination, partly by accepted wisdom, partly by popularity.
Robert Gottlieb
I think that what happens for many Christians is, they accept their particular faith, they accept it to be true, and they stop examining it. Consequently, because it’s already accepted to be true, they don’t examine other people’s faiths… That, I think, is not healthy for a person of any faith.
Adam Hamilton
I don't really care about being accepted now. I wish I

I don’t really care about being accepted now. I wish I had been like that earlier.
Terry Bradshaw
There’s this idea that Hollywood sells over and over again: ‘If I just looked more like this, I’d be accepted.’
Marti Noxon
When I found myself facing jeers by wearing the shirts of Juventus and Milan, I always accepted them.
Leonardo Bonucci
Despite all the criticisms that have been leveled at the comics community, both in terms of fans and creators, I have always felt more comfortable and accepted in the comics community than I have in any other medium of publishing that I’ve had the pleasure of working in.
G. Willow Wilson
I have accepted fear as a part of life – specifically the fear of change… I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back.
Erica Jong
Toward the end of 11th grade, my acting teacher asked me if I was thinking about going to college. I said, ‘Yeah, I think so.’ He said, ‘You should audition to Julliard.’ I was like, ‘What’s that?’ I’m accepted to Julliard, and I realize within the first couple of weeks just how lucky I was to be in the program.
Shalita Grant
If we all worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true is really true, there would be little hope of advance.
Orville Wright
I put my flaws on front street. So the world accepted my flaws, so I don’t have any flaws.
Kevin Gates
You never know why a film gets accepted and why it doesn’t. I have learnt to just go with the flow.
Pranitha Subhash
We have all had, on all sides of the House – some truly appalling things said about us. I’ve been called a race traitor, a coconut, a sell out. It’s horrible and it’s never the kind of thing that should be normalised or accepted.
James Cleverly
In the spring of 1959, I received an offer of a professorship at Harvard, which I accepted with alacrity since I wanted to be near my family and since the chemistry department at Harvard was unsurpassed.
Elias James Corey
Dreams must be heeded and accepted. For a great many of them come true.
Paracelsus
I’ve accepted stuff even if it’s a few lines, because I think it’s better to be seen.
Anne Reid
I spent my whole adolescence, when you just want to be accepted, looking much younger than everyone else.
Jenna Fischer
I still feel I need to do things 10 times better than other players. Just to be accepted and to improve myself.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
I wanted ‘The South Bank Show’ to reflect my own life and that of the team around me; to stretch the accepted boundaries and challenge the accepted hierarchies of the arts; to include pop music as well as classical music, television drama as well as theatre drama, and high-definition performers in comedy.
Melvyn Bragg
It is much easier to imitate something else that you know is accepted and loved than it is to look inside and follow your own compass, because you have no idea if you’ll be accepted, if you’ll be right, if your ideas are good, if your way is a path to success.
Shannon Lee
It is now, after doing TV shows and so much work, that people have accepted me as a great choreographer. So I had to struggle too much, and I am happy with my journey today, though there is a lot more left now.
Remo D’Souza
I already accepted that I can’t jump no more. I’m not as fast as I used to be. I accepted that already. That’s where you become more smart, make that first step or two before that quick player can get there. I gotta make this jump shot, so I’ll give a pump fake because I know that he can jump higher than me.
Rasheed Wallace
You know, Freud accepted his lot very stoically and very well and with a sense of humor. He aged and died gracefully, and there’s a lot to be said for that.
Viggo Mortensen
When I was in college, my school newspaper accepted an ad from a Holocaust revisionist organization. This would have been offensive on most college campuses across the country, but I went to a school with a very large Jewish population, so the ad, as you might expect, stirred absolute outrage.
Simon Sinek
We live in an epoch where rational reasoning associated with evidence isn’t universally accepted and is, in fact, in jeopardy. That worries me a lot.
Rainer Weiss
Pretty people aren’t as accepted as other people. It’s like, ‘She’s pretty and thin and she’s got to have problems. She’s messed up.’
Mischa Barton
‘Star Trek’ fans totally accepted my sexual orientation. There are a great number of LGBT people across ‘Star Trek’ fandom. The show always appealed to people that were different – the geeks and the nerds, and the people who felt they were not quite a part of society, sometimes because they may have been gay or lesbian.
George Takei
My audience has accepted me for a long time as, you know, not a fat comedian but a comedian who happens to be fat. That’s a huge difference.
Ralphie May
The P.L.O., and later the Palestinian Authority, never truly accepted that Israel, as the national state and homeland of the Jewish people, was here to stay.
Danny Danon
Lesbians and gays… they still have to fight, even inside. It’s not that simple, even if they seem to be accepted.
Catherine Deneuve
Before I left for Germany, I had gotten accepted to the performing arts high school in New York, which was a big dream of mine. And having to leave that was very sad for me.
Nina Arianda
Why, if someone is good in one field can they not be accepted or given the slightest opportunity to express and be creative in other fields?
Kanye West
A lot of the LGBTQ community accepted ‘Tangerine,’ which was something we worked really hard to achieve.
Sean Baker
The Japanese government has accepted the notion that Japan is the loser, and it appears to be going to accept unconditional surrender. Such a position frustrates the officers and soldiers of the imperial armed forces.
Hideki Tojo
Why should Bollywood accept me? I should accept Bollywo

Why should Bollywood accept me? I should accept Bollywood. I don’t care if Bollywood has accepted me. I don’t seek acceptance. I don’t need to live up to anybody’s expectations.
Kangana Ran
aut
America is a knowledge-based society, where information counts as much as material resources. Therefore those with the power to define what qualifies as knowledge – to determine what are the accepted facts – wield the greatest social and political power.
Nancy Pearcey
Later, after flying in the Navy for four or five years, spending some time on an aircraft carrier, I applied to and was accepted in a program where I went to graduate school first and then to the Naval Test Pilots School.
Mark Kelly
We are now welcoming a world where fashion is not bogged down by binary gender norms. The trend is moving beyond symbolizing its wearers’ identity or gender. It’s now being accepted by the mainstream as more of a look, both on the catwalk and the high street.
Masaba Gupta
When I accepted the commission, I had something of an epiphany in the research I did about the agency, actually the science of espionage. I realized there is a connection between the sciences and the invisible forces of man.
James Sanborn
It is commonly asserted and accepted that Paradise Lost is among the two or three greatest English poems; it may justly be taken as the type of supreme poetic achievement in our literature.
John Drinkwater
I was a salsa dancer for the majority of my life, from, like, 7 to 17, and did the World Salsa Congresses. I realized that I wanted to continue obviously to be a performer. But in my household, being an actor and jumping into acting is not really accepted.
Gina Rodriguez
Just because people are calling you skinny doesn’t mean I’m like, ‘Yay!’ No! You’re telling me I don’t look right. This is me, this is my body – I have accepted it.
Shenae Grimes
I’m a film buff and I was keen to find out about the response to Daniel Craig’s 007. ‘Empire’ and ‘Hot Dog’ had great reviews, and finally he’s been accepted as the new Bond. So many millions go into that franchise that if you make a mistake, it’s awful.
Burn Gorman
Growing up, I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test, and there were a thousand ways to fail, a thousand ways to betray yourself, to not live up to someone else’s standards of what was accepted, of what was normal.
Wentworth Miller
To draft a bill of rights that simply replicates the European convention on human rights gives the game away; namely that the Human Rights Act does, in fact, offer appropriate protection to all of our citizens according to universally accepted standards.
Keir Starmer
If I just produce the transparent ideal accepted by the Western experts, a process of privatization which will be very good but never happen, that means nothing.
Anatoly Chubais
I went to a very mean school and was bullied like crazy. I was a bit of a goth with purple hair, and I was also part of the drama group, which was filled with actors and writers and wasn’t really accepted by the rest of the school.
Christina Hendricks
Very rarely does a mainstream film push the envelope. A film that’s so-called mainstream and questions certain norms, certain notions of morality, and gets away with it opens doors. It means the common man, the majority of the people, have accepted it.
Javed Akhtar
English, once accepted as an international language, is no more secure than French has proved to be as the one and only accepted language of diplomacy or as Latin has proved to be as the international language of science.
Edward Sapir
I’m used to taking risks – my career was a risk. Being a stand-up comic is not something that’s normally accepted when your mother is Filipino.
Jo Koy
I’ve accepted I can’t rely on my work alone; I must market myself. The truly spectacular roles do go to the girls who actively promote their popularity.
Embeth Davidtz
Most days I struggle just to be accepted into the camp of plain old feminists. This is mainly because I am not by nature ideological and generally suspicious of people who are.
Hanna Rosin
I went to college and did theatre. After that, I spent about three years in Seattle doing French theater and community theater and sorting it all out. Then I applied to graduate school and got accepted, so I started pursuing my master’s in theatre at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco.
Darby Stanchfield
If I had accepted the offers to continue just for the sake of carrying on then it wouldn’t have made me happy especially if it was just for money. Now I’ve got other projects to concentrate on.
Sete Gibernau
When I used to put videos on MySpace, there’d always be someone posting something nasty. To those people, I’d send friend requests, and invariably, they accepted them.
Wyatt Cenac
Intellectuals would be much more accepted now than in the ’40s.
Parker Stevenson
When I was a senior, I got accepted into the Julliard School for Dance, but ultimately decided to move to L.A. to act, so that was a fun conversation with the parents. I truly have some of the greatest parents ever.
Jacob Artist
There’s an examination for young people to go to university. I failed it three times. I failed a lot. So I applied to 30 different jobs and got rejected. I went for a job with the police; they said, ‘You’re no good.’ I even went to KFC when it came to my city. Twenty-four people went for the job. Twenty-three were accepted.
Jack Ma
I think ‘The Wood’ was probably more concerned with the parts of Inglewood that aren’t usually seen on film – the areas that were middle-class, or upper-middle-class – and that idea that these worlds do exist, and should be accepted as part of Inglewood itself.
Rick Famuyiwa
I know people said I wasn’t selling out in America, but that was entirely untrue. We sold out all over the world, and every night I looked out into the fans and those front rows that you’re talking about, the tears, the honesty, the inability to not be completely overjoyed because they felt accepted.
Lady Gaga
In Seattle, I soon found that my radical ideas and aesthetic explorations – ideas and explorations that in Richmond, Virginia, might have gotten me stoned to death with hush puppies – were not only accepted but occasionally applauded.
Tom Robbins
The biggest challenge for cyborgs is to be socially accepted. Society needs to accept that there are people who wish to use technology as part of the body.
Neil Harbisson
John Brown was one of my longtime heroes, and it was with no little amount of temerity that I accepted the role. There are some things I am hesitant about, and playing a hero of mine is one of them.
Sterling Hayden
Among other things, the Real ID Act sets minimum security criteria that states would have to meet to have their driver’s licenses accepted as identification to board a commercial flight or enter federal facilities.
Elton Gallegly
Every human being can relate to wanting their thoughts and their feelings to be accepted and rewarded and validated. So in that way, a stand-up is similar to almost any profession. It’s very simply just someone who wants to be heard and live authentically and express themselves.
Pete Holmes
When I took the SAT, I didn't get accepted into a singl

When I took the SAT, I didn’t get accepted into a single white school that I applied to. Now I’ve got honorary degrees from a lot of those schools that rejected me. Things are different now, but not that much different.
Andrew Young
Even though I read voraciously as a child, I never saw myself in books. Without narratives to expand my ideas of who I could be, I accepted the stories others told me about myself, stories which diminished and belittled me and people like me. I want to write against that.
Jesmyn Ward
It is often observed that the first casualty of war is truth, but how do you tell the truth without betraying the sacrifice of those who accepted the terms of battle? War is a sacrificial system that creates its own justification.
Stanley Hauerwas
I gladly accepted the commission but was uncertain about what the end result would be. On the one hand, Cuban music was conquering the world; being heard everywhere, and our small island was already producing one of the popular musical genres of the 20th century.
Alejo Carpentier
Through my unique style of playing, I want to prove that you don’t have to conform to be accepted. The greatest value comes from loving yourself for who you are.
Lindsey Stirling
Never, ever, have I felt really accepted in Hollywood.
Sally Field
After graduation from high school, I attended the university entrance examination, and fortunately, I was accepted by the Department of Pharmacy and became a student at the Medical School of Peking University.
Tu Youyou
I was wearing blush when I was in third grade, so honestly, I just grew up with people who accepted me.
Bretman Rock
I have accepted that even when Mr. Cosby is long gone, I will still get asked about him.
Malcolm-Jamal Warner
I’ve experienced colorism in that way: where if you’re lighter, then you’ll potentially be accepted into society better than if you were darker-skinned.
Diane Guerrero
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Arthur Schopenhauer
I never had any doubts. I wanted MLS. I’d followed it on TV, and I liked it. And being able to play in New York did the rest. I don’t know if I would have accepted an offer from any other city.
Andrea Pirlo
The feeling of being accepted and acknowledgement and recognition and fame – I’m vain like everybody else. The feeling of achievement that I’ve helped the poor or somebody in need far outweighs the money.
Joe Jamail
There is such a thing as old emotional pain living inside you. It is an accumulation of painful life experience that was not fully faced and accepted in the moment it arose. It leaves behind an energy form of emotional pain.
Eckhart Tolle
Some boys accepted me, some didn’t. And my family had comments made to them. Brazil is still a very macho society, and sports are mainly for boys, so people would say to them: ‘What is this girl doing? Why is she always out there in the soccer games with the boys?’
Marta
I had accepted a position as a business analyst at Deloitte Consulting in New York. But before I went into that workforce, I decided to take a year off and went to India to do a social enterprise fellowship. It wasn’t the best fit, but that was where a TV show in Korea found me and invited me to first come perform.
Eric Nam
If Pakistan had not accepted the demand to stop cross-border infiltration and the United States had not conveyed to us Pakistan’s guarantee to do so, then nothing could have stopped a war.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
The more horrific works came out of a feeling that everyone accepted my stuff too easily. I was deliberately trying to be antagonistic towards collectors and critics.
Cindy Sherman
The lusts of this world leads us to fulfill our carnal need to be accepted, but as children of God we are already accepted by a Heavenly Father who is over and above all things.
Monica Johnson
Since the web is totally worldwide, we need a set of behavioural rules, laws they are commonly called, that are accepted worldwide. There is a big difference as to how things are treated in the U.S. and Europe and Asia.
Robert Cailliau
I didn’t think much about foreign readers when I began ‘Naruto,’ but I knew that many of the artists who influenced me had already been accepted overseas.
Masashi Kishimoto
Any thought that is passed on to the subconscious often enough and convincingly enough is finally accepted.
Robert Collier
We knew when we started we wouldn’t be accepted overnight, that it was going to be a long haul.
Angus Young
People assume that trans people will only be accepted as trans characters, or that there aren’t enough trans writers, or that there aren’t any trans producers or directors, there’s that attitude.
Brian Michael Smith
More than accepted, it’s encouraged for rock stars to be out of control.
Martin Gore
I’m confident in who I am. I’ve come to a place in my life where I’ve accepted things that are me, as opposed to feeling pressure to explain myself to people around me. That’s just the way I’ve always tried to be. It didn’t change when I became a star.
Lady Gaga
I tried four times to get into the Central School of Speech and Drama before I got accepted. I started when I was 17, which was too young, in retrospect, and finally went when I was 21. I just kept plugging away. Determined? Yeah, I think I was.
Catherine Tate
There were promises made to me as far as if I became a professional wrestler, that I was going to be given every opportunity to be a headliner… and that’s the only reason why I accepted.
Bruno Sammartino
When I was in Taiwan, we were there for about 8 months, and I was 11 at the time, so it was definitely a culture shock. But it was a really interesting time to be there. I didn’t entirely realize how different it is from the States. I just accepted it because I was there and my parents needed to be there.
David Lambert
I’ve gone the full spectrum – from gospel to blues to jazz to soul to pop – and the public has accepted what I’ve done through it all. I think it means I’ve been doing something right at the right time.
Lou Rawls
Today, Jewish defense is an accepted thing.
Meir Kahane
I had pretty much accepted the fact I was going to be a

I had pretty much accepted the fact I was going to be a stay-at-home mom and do my other adventures in life. I thought coming back to the WWE was out of the cards for me.
Mickie James
It took me a long time to be accepted as an actress, I think, because of the modeling and because of my mother.
Isabella Rossellini
Do you know something? The minute that blood sacrifice was accepted, Jesus was the first human being that was ever born again. Now that was real – it happened when he was in Hell.
Joyce Meyer
The Obama administration notoriously refuses to acknowledge that Islamists commit Islamist terror, so it logically follows that a Christian victim of Islamist violence should not address the issue lest it challenge accepted political orthodoxy.
Pete Hoekstra
I am so grateful that I accepted the offer to do ‘CSI,’ but it was like being shot out of a cannon, and it was so different from anything that I have ever done.
Ted Danson
It is widely accepted and understood that consumer decisions are as much influenced by emotional attachments to a product or service as by factors like price and performance. So why is it that when it comes to most aspects of human transportation, the world still seems to believe people are rational machines?
Jens Martin Skibsted
I’d been writing poems for many years, but most of them I didn’t like. Then, when I was 23, I wrote one I did like, sent it to ‘The Paris Review’ – the highest publication I could think of – and they accepted it. No other moment in my literary life has quite come close to that.
Siri Hustvedt
I regard myself as being enormously lucky to have been accepted by the British public in so many areas.
Rolf Harris
We do not build new Jewish communities in Samaria, Judea and Gaza. The United States has never accepted our building of communities or of the fence. Yet, I’ve managed to develop relations between Israel and the United States even though President Bush never supported settlements.
Ariel Sharon
I come from a family of tall, curvy women. I developed in my body and my shape far earlier, so from a young age I accepted it. I embraced it and saw it as an advantage.
Ricki-Lee Coulter
I felt unworthy to play Jesus. I just accepted the responsibility and said, ‘What actor wouldn’t want to play this role?’
Jim Caviezel
Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He’s sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped.
Charles Stanley
The basic idea that if you increase government spending or you cut people’s taxes that stimulates the economy and lowers the unemployment rate, is a very widely accepted idea. It’s in every economics textbook, that’s what we teach our undergraduates, and I certainly try to teach them the truth.
Christina Romer
I wrote my first full book when I was fourteen, and that was ‘Obernewtyn.’ It was also the first book I had published. It was accepted by the first publisher I sent it to, and it was short listed for Children’s Book of the Year in the older readers category in Australia.
Isobelle Carmody
I like to think I’m a bit of a son of the country, I’ve played for the country so many times I feel proud to be Welsh. It’s accepted me for what I am and what I do.
Gareth Thomas
Movies are this thing that came into my life, and it still feels pretend in some way. I kind of do this thing, and I never really accepted this idea that I’m a film actor. That’s what I do. I feel like I’m a theater actor that started doing films. Most people have never seen me in a play. They’re fun, though.
John C. Reilly
I have to say, my family’s always been incredibly open and encouraging of any way I might want to express myself. At a very young age, they accepted that my outlet would be writing, and comedic writing, and they were pretty accepting of that.
Susanna Fogel
My relationship with George Steinbrenner was great. He was the boss, and I accepted that.
Joe Torre
Actually, it’s difficult to predict which films would be accepted by the audience. The trend changes time to time.
Soham Chakraborty
As long as we’re great at what we do, we’ll be accepted.
Lisa Lopes
I mean, I have a daughter, and it’s a very bad message to send to my daughter that to be valid or accepted or to have value, you have to look a certain way. It’s all about appearance, and not about education and not about contributing. I think we’ve completely lost our way.
Christopher Cross
Ever since the economic crisis in 2008, millions of people have accepted cuts in all sorts of things – from real wages and living standards to benefits and hospital care – without any real opposition. The cuts may be right, or they may be stupid – but the astonishing thing is how no-one really challenges them.
Adam Curtis
War stories, westerns, spy stories are all accepted as respectable because they are read by men. It is only women’s light reading which is derided.
Charlotte Lamb
I like to take music from everywhere and put it in my style and let it be accepted.
Flo Rida
‘Betchya Got A Cure’ is my gut response to the media wars in this country, which are driving a wedge between citizens. It’s about taking a stand for individuality and being brave instead of being accepted.
Sophie B. Hawkins
When you’re accepted you don’t have to fight for parts.
Jackie Coogan
A lot of times black folks look for love in all the wrong places. You’re always looking for somebody to love you, be accepted, and there’s the insecurities that are even transmitted through rap. Everyone is trying to aim to please too much.
Chuck D
When the Lakers sent me down to the D-League, I didn’t view it as a demotion. I accepted it as a challenge. Plus, it meant playing more minutes, which meant growth.
Jordan Clarkson
When I got a call to be a part of the Save Governments School initiative as an ambassador, I happily accepted. I even adopted a government school for a small amount of Rs 5 lakh.
Pranitha Subhash
The core constituency that Republicans must satisfy in high court nominations is the party’s social conservative base, which fundamentally cares about issues, not diversity, and has accepted white men who practice the judging it admires.
Benjamin Wittes
In New York, everyone’s desperate for success, desperate for money and desperate to be accepted, but in London they’re more laid back about things like that.
David Bailey
The International Brigades and the British volunteers w

The International Brigades and the British volunteers were, numerically, only a small part of the Republican forces, but nearly all had accepted the need for organization and order in civilian life.
Bill Alexander
You were told how much space so it was a matter of whether you could send in two paintings or three paintings, you know, pending where the show was being held. You did submit work to be accepted. Once you were accepted that was it. You did your own selection of what went in.
Lee Krasner
A no deal Brexit is a proposal so damaging to our future that it cannot be accepted.
Dominic Grieve
Men and women are different: we have different tendencies, skills, and behaviors. This should be accepted and fostered, not demonized. Because the end result is simply more effeminate men and more masculine women. Who wants that?
Milo Yiannopoulos
My mom has accepted my style. My dad is a little suspect with all the bright colors and loud stuff. He’s a khakis and polo kind of guy. He’s OK with it, but the loud stuff, he says I’m his little daughter.
Chandler Parsons
I see the Beijing National Stadium as an architectural project. I accepted Herzog and De Meuron’s invitation to collaborate on the design, and our proposal won the competition. From beginning to end, I stayed with the project. I am committed to fostering relationships between a city and its architecture.
Ai Weiwei
As is widely accepted, putting a price on carbon pollution is the lowest cost and most efficient way to tackle dangerous climate change.
Wayne Swan
It is definitely somewhat a crutch of feeling that you have to please others in order to be accepted.
Angie Stone
I was never confident about finishing a book, but friends encouraged me. When I finished my first book, it was accepted by a publisher right away and became an instant bestseller. One male critic called it the most shocking book he ever read.
Jackie Collins
Well, I have a CBE and I accepted it with glee because it’s not bestowed on you by the royal family, it’s not bestowed on you by the government, you have to be nominated by the public.
Rod Stewart
I don’t hate what I see when I look in the mirror. Even if legions of others don’t agree. I have accepted the reflection that reliably bounces back at me for its perks and its flaws.
Leandra Medine
Working with higher education institutions can also help to aid cybersecurity professionals who are already in the workforce. Programs like these can help to move the industry forward by building rigorous and universally accepted certifications and changing expectations of what a security expert can and should be.
Ken Xie
You’re trying to grow up, and you don’t want to be like your parents, and that gets mixed up with being Korean… They brought their values from Korea, and I accepted them because I didn’t know anything more. But as I grow older, I feel more Korean every year; it’s very strange.
John Cho
The industry doesn’t usually say nice things about my work. My films take a while till they are accepted as good and I think ‘Yennai Arindhaal’ too will go through that phase.
Gautham Menon
With whom do you argue? With a woman, of course. Not with a friend, because he accepted all your defects the moment he found you. Besides, woman is mother-have we forgotten?
Marcello Mastroianni
In Mexico, this idea that fathers go away is really deeply accepted because, for so long, so many men have had to leave to work in the United States.
Diego Luna
Some women are forced by men to look a certain way to be accepted by the general public, and I find that terrible.
Alessandro Michele
The commonly accepted definition of terrorism is that it is politically motivated violence directed at civilians by entities other than a state. These kind of attacks can come from the far right, the far left, racists of every stripe, as well as jihadists.
Peter Bergen
I guess I’ve accepted that theatre is never going to be edgy in the way I want it to be. It’s too expensive for a start. And, the audience seems to be complicit in the dullness.
Martin McDonagh
By virtue of my traditions, and my community, I worked hard to ensure that I was accepted as part of the traditional family of America.
James H. Douglas, Jr.
We have a list of human rights – right to food, right to shelter, right to health, right to education, many such items which are considered and accepted as bill of rights. These are to be insured to people. So all nations, all societies try to do that.
Muhammad Yunus
I came home from school one day, and there was a phone call for me. And I picked up the phone. They said, ‘This is the Harvard Admissions Department. We’d like to let you know that you’re accepted in the freshman class.’ And I said, ‘Come on, who is this really?’
Ben Bernanke
I was happy when I got into film school. I’d simply satisfied my ambition to show them that I could get in – nothing else – although I do believe they shouldn’t have accepted me. I was a complete idiot. I can’t understand why they took me. Probably because I’d tried three times.
Krzysztof Kieslowski
I went to Briar Cliff College initially, and then I transferred to Georgetown University, because I was a Russian major, and I was one of two girls accepted that year. This was September 1969 – well, that would have been 1970 – into the School Of Languages And Linguistics in Georgetown.
P. J. Soles
Vail’s a very important place for me. Everyone kind of took me in and accepted me in that town, and they still have to this day. I wouldn’t be a downhill skier if I hadn’t been there.
Lindsey Vonn
My first novel, ‘Housekeeping,’ was accepted by the first agent who read it, and bought by the first editor who read it. In general, my experience with publication has been gentle and gratifying.
Marilynne Robinson
I decided to pursue graduate study in molecular biology and was accepted by Professor Itaru Watanabe’s laboratory at the Institute for Virus Research at the University of Kyoto, one of a few laboratories in Japan where U.S.-trained molecular biologists were actively engaged in research.
Susumu Tonegawa
When hired three years ago, I willingly accepted the challenge of leading the Bulls back to the type of team this city richly deserves. I’m proud of the fact that each year the team has taken another step toward an NBA championship, and played with intense pride and determination.
Doug Collins
I have always accepted intelligence was an honorable profession. We are all mindful of the need to comply with our moral values and the law.
James Clapper
Reggae music is not an easy music to like when it comes to the power in society. ‘Cause it talks about changing society. You won’t find it readily accepted.
Ziggy Marley
More than 30 years ago, when I had embarked upon the fight against child labour, it was not even considered an issue worth any discussion. It was accepted as a way of life in India, much like it was in other countries. Today, no country or business or society can throw this issue away.
Kailash Satyarthi
Violence is totally accepted in this country.

Violence is totally accepted in this country.
Jay Chandrasekhar
I’ve never been able to relate to many people. I’ve always been the outcast child. I don’t follow the rules. That’s kind of how I do everything. Through my music, I’ve found a place in the world where I’m accepted, so I’m happy.
Neon Hitch
There was nothing about Bobby I didn’t like… I guess I never understood why he took a left-hand turn when real success came. We got along better from 1990 until his death in 2003. I had accepted him for who he was.
Bill Medley
I think the audience will be pleasantly surprised to see what I have attempted with ‘Dolly Ki Doli.’ I am confident that this movie will be accepted.
Arbaaz Khan
I’m learning to accept everything that I am. I’ve accepted that I’m not going to be a stick-thin-model kind of girl. When I was 14, I was tall and spindly. By the time I turned 18, I had become a woman, and my body’s not going to go back to what it looked like when I was 14.
Mandy Moore
While I can hold my own with great talents and have an opinion in the face of big personalities, I’m just a regular guy. I’ve accepted my position in life: that I’m never going to be that cool. And I’m okay with that.
Bobby Bones
I didn’t become an actor because I wanted to act. Actually, I wanted to become a marine biologist. But most of all, I wanted to be accepted.
Willie Aames
I believe the accepted model of capitalism that demands endless growth deserves the blame for the destruction of nature, and it should be displaced. Failing that, I try to work with those companies and help them change the way they think about our resources.
Yvon Chouinard
What happens when we’re willing to feel bad is that, sure enough, we often feel bad – but without the stress of futile avoidance. Emotional discomfort, when accepted, rises, crests, and falls in a series of waves. Each wave washes parts of us away and deposits treasures we never imagined.
Martha Beck
While handling social media pages, my father accepted every friend suggestion that popped up on the screen. He’s shared some random videos and commented on people’s posts. I told him it’s silly paa ‘ and he laughed. Maybe on Father’s Day, I’ll teach him to order his favorite food on an app.
Pranitha Subhash
Anyone who has not accepted Jesus, I want to be your brothers and sisters, too.
Robert J. Bentley
Today’s practicality is often no more than the accepted form of yesterday’s theory.
Kenneth L. Pike
Life is made up of challenges that cannot be solved but only accepted.
Roger Ebert
What might we learn from lines of research that are off the beaten track? They check accepted ideas, always a good thing, and there is the chance nature has prepared yet another surprise for us.
Jim Peebles
I always accepted the libertarian position of minimum regulation in the sale and use of firearms because I placed guns under the beneficial rubric of minimal restrictions on individuals.
Michael Shermer
Cocktail music is accepted as audible wallpaper.
Alistair Cooke
Trans women should be accepted and celebrated, whether they look a little bit more on the masculine side of the spectrum or they’re the femme of all fems.
Trace Lysette
I was obsessed with The Who. I would have accepted a marriage proposal from Roger Daltrey on the spot. I went to all of their shows in San Francisco and some in L.A. That was as close as I got to being a groupie.
Jennifer Egan
Everyone in the world knows ‘Spider-Man.’ And to be accepted into such a large franchise was overwhelming.
Chris Zylka
The year I got into The Actors Studio, Steve McQueen and I were the only two accepted that whole year.
Martin Landau
Immigrant communities have been genuinely accepted in London.
Sadiq Khan
In the past, two colleagues died each season. It was generally accepted this could happen.
Jacky Ickx
In the steel industry the corporations generally have accepted collective bargaining and negotiated wage agreements with the Committee for Industrial Organization.
John L. Lewis
The Keynesian idea is once again accepted that fiscal policy and deficit spending has a major role to play in guiding a market economy. I wish Friedman were still alive so he could witness how his extremism led to the defeat of his own ideas.
Paul Samuelson
I’m delighted to have been accepted into the U.S.A. with my fishing program after its success in Australia and throughout the U.K., Europe, and Asia.
Rex Hunt
It’s my experience that the fluidity of sexuality with younger people is more accepted.
Josh Schwartz
I was seventeen when I moved to New York. I was nineteen when I joined the main company. I was going through a lot. Just becoming an adult and just wanting to fit in, be accepted, and be in common with the other dancers.
Misty Copeland
Drag breaks the fourth wall, which is why it’s never been quite accepted, because nobody wants to be told that they are really a caricature of themself and to not take yourself too seriously.
RuPaul
I needed our fans to know they’re loved and accepted, and fear isn’t the way to go.
Lauren Jauregui
My parents didn’t know anything about collegiate scholarships, so they had accepted the national team training stipend, the monthly stipend that I received after making the national team, so I was ineligible for NCAA eligibility anyway.
Dominique Moceanu
Olmert made a proposal on the governing of Jerusalem that I do not believe his cabinet or the Knesset would have accepted.
Elliott Abrams
When people come to my gigs, they feel accepted as they

When people come to my gigs, they feel accepted as they are and they feel part of this family.
Saara Aalto
One of the first rules of playing the power game is that all bad news must be accepted calmly, as if one already knew and didn’t care.
Michael Korda
There’s no accepted global policy on what to do about asteroid impacts.
Rusty Schweickart
I’m very proud this show has been accepted for this length of time.
Robert Stack
I never accepted why there should be some invisible, wavy cutoff line separating Great Fiction from phosphorescent beauties and dollhouse miniatures, novels that contain a whole world in a snow globe.
James Wolcott
Redistribution of wealth would require enormous amounts of investment. The only time an elite has accepted this has been during crises, such as in America in the 1930s under Roosevelt.
Susan George
Haven’t we put off problems without clarifying Japan’s will to protect the lives and assets of its people and territory with its own hands, and merely accepted the benefits of economic prosperity?
Shinzo Abe
The power of the silent filibuster to distort Senate politics is now accepted on Capitol Hill and by the press as normal and not worth mentioning. Let me be the skunk at this political garden party and say this stinks. Representative government was not designed to work this way by the Founding Fathers.
Juan Williams
It’s very clear from Biblical history and Jewish history that Jewish monotheism wasn’t developed in an instant, that it became gradually the accepted norm. But undoubtedly, Jewish ancestors were polytheists.
Robert Winston
I guess the British audience accepted us for being refreshing and interesting.
Moa Kikuchi
I am flattered to have been the woman to have opened the door for female rockers to be accepted into the mainly male industry.
Suzi Quatro
I’d rather be hated for who I am than loved who I am not. Even if you’re not accepted, at least you are still yourself.
Kat Graham
But I think you have to accept – as I have accepted – that the demands of TV are different than the demand of book writing.
Ian McElhinney
I wasn’t accepted the first time I tried to get into drama school. I said, ‘I’ll give this one more shot… and if that doesn’t work, I won’t bang my head against this painful brick wall.’
James Purefoy
Once my heart was captured, reason was shown the door, deliberately and with a sort of frantic joy. I accepted everything, I believed everything, without struggle, without suffering, without regret, without false shame. How can one blush for what one adores?
George Sand
My grandparents would never admit to being Tasmanian, but I think it’s really great and funny. But I guess, in the past, Tasmanians just weren’t quite accepted. You had that lazy reference to them being felons.
Jessie Cave
I think falling in love with an older woman is not abnormal. It happens a lot in our society, but it’s just that it is not accepted with open arms.
Dimple Kapadia
Wake Forest came knocking on the door, and I accepted that offer. It changed my life completely.
Muggsy Bogues
It’s possible and available to any artist to be himself or herself on their own terms, to be accepted and embraced by black people. You don’t have to be a thug to get love from black people.
Mos Def
The octogenarians who have pictures of Hillary Clinton under their toilet-bowl covers – they’ve completely accepted me.
Dustin Lance Black
I needed to be accepted, not humored. I intended to act.
Gene Tierney
Love is of that excellent nature, that it is esteemed by the best of men, and accepted from the meanest persons; what then is the affection of a Father!
John Pearson
In certain places around the world, street art is widely accepted and it is part of the urban environment.
Ben Eine
My sister was born a couple years after I was, and I realized that I wasn’t getting enough attention, as much attention as I used to before she showed up, and then I learned pretty early on that if I could do a silly dance or make grown-ups laugh, then the attention would come back to me, and I would be accepted.
Paul Rudd
It would be a privilege to be accepted by the Glazer family in Tampa.
Jameis Winston
Sexuality didn’t come into it when I was bullied, but for so many years, being LGBTQ was one of the biggest things you would be bullied for at school. Hopefully, as time goes on, it will be a completely accepted thing that people won’t have to think about.
Tom Daley
It has always been accepted, even in pronouncements by the Supreme Court that the Court and its judgements can be subjected to strong, even trenchant criticism. Is the same yardstick not available for comments on the use or abuse of the Court’s powers of contempt?
Prashant Bhushan
I think, as a gay man in society, we are not accepted yet… let alone a gay man with a kid.
Scott Evans
When God took it, he accepted it; when he brought it back, he accepted it. That’s what’s happening with me.
James Brown
I applied to only one college – the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania – and was fortunate to be accepted. After graduation, I headed to Wall Street and worked as I had dreamed.
Karen Finerman
In Germany air became generally accepted Berlin in this area. It operated with 45 airplanes within the Low Cost range from Germany, and is one the most successful carriers in Europe.
Niki Lauda
'Hispanic' is English for a person of Latino origin who

‘Hispanic’ is English for a person of Latino origin who wants to be accepted by the white status quo. ‘Latino’ is the word we have always used for ourselves.
Sandra Cisneros
My focus never wavered; I never accepted the film was not going to be finished.
Dougray Scott
I accepted the face that as much as I want to lead others, and love to be around other people, in some essential way, I am something of a loner.
Arthur Ashe
To be recognized and accepted by my musical peers is truly an honor.
Khalid
One may say that in a state of science where fundamental concepts have to be changed, tradition is both the condition for progress and a hindrance. Hence, it usually takes a long time before the new concepts are generally accepted.
Werner Heisenberg
Stereotypical and hurtful tropes about Jews are widely accepted in the African American community.
Jemele Hill
It’s a wonderful narrative device to bring someone from the outside and look through his eyes if you want to describe the absurdity and preposterous reality that is accepted amongst the ones who are inside.
Christoph Waltz
Having done movies in Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi, I have been accepted both in North and down South. I don’t believe in divisions. I like to believe that I am working in the Indian film industry.
Asin
I’ve always kinda been a little outcast myself, a little oddball, doin’ my thing, my own way. And it’s been hard for me to, to be accepted, certainly in the early years of my life.
Dolly Parton
I have never accepted any random offers for the sake of being a regular face in the film industry.
Atul Kulkarni
Skepticism is an important historical tool. It is the starting point of all revision of hitherto accepted history.
Samuel E. Morison
There are a lot of movies about misfits that are quite cool, that kind of glamorize it on some level. I think there are fewer films, certainly with a lady at the center, about the agony of what it’s like to feel like you’re not accepted, and you’re different, and somehow you’re weird.
Rebecca Hall
Divorce is so common and accepted in America that beating myself up over it may sound ridiculous. But I was raised to believe that divorce wasn’t an option; to me, divorce equaled failure. I wasn’t able to change that equation until I found myself in the right relationship.
Trisha Yearwood
It is obvious that discrimination exists. Women do not have the opportunities that men do. And women that do not conform to the system, who try to break with the accepted patterns, are stigmatized as odd and unfeminine.
Shirley Chisholm
I couldn’t lie anymore to my kids telling them that they are equal citizens in the state of Israel. They cannot be equal because in order to fit in and to be accepted and to be a citizen in Israel, you need a Jewish mother.
Sayed Kashua
I met with my lawyers. They gave me all the wrong advice. For a long time I refused to accept the child was mine. I should have met her, arranged a DNA test and accepted my responsibility.
Boris Becker
The struggle goes on. The victory is in the struggle, for me. And I accepted that a long time ago.
Al Lewis
Our films have immense power, and we have always accepted international artistes with open arms. If Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone can do wonders in Hollywood, then they can also do it here.
Remo D’Souza
At high school, instead of the weekly essay, I would write a poem, and the teacher accepted that. The impulse was one of laziness, I’m certain. Poems were shorter than essays.
Paul Muldoon
I don’t feel secure as an actor. I want to do more films and get accepted by masses.
Saqib Saleem
My career is too short for there to be any turns! But I would say that not everyone is noticed and accepted in their debut films. I was accepted both by the industry and the audience.
Kriti Sanon
I’m not the sexy girl. I’m more youthful and innocent, the girl who wears jeans and T-shirts and sneakers. But fans have accepted that I’m a tomboy. There’s a different group of people who find that attractive.
AJ Lee
It was really exciting to see how ‘Bridesmaids’ was accepted and how well it did.
Lauren Miller
Early in the second season of ‘The Andy Griffith Show,’ I ventured a suggestion for a line change to make it sound more ‘like the way a kid would say it.’ I was just 7 years old. But my idea was accepted, and I remember standing frozen, thrilled at what this moment represented to me.
Ron Howard
Breaking accepted rules does bring people together.
Theodore Zeldin
I talk to women’s groups all over the country and see women struggling with this. The fear of not being accepted, of being different, of not having a man, all make it hard for a woman to do what she really believes is right for her.
Olympia Dukakis
The decision to write full time was made when I was twenty-eight years old and had just had two small plays accepted for BBC Radio.
Douglas Kennedy
Ever since Pele’s extraordinary talents blessed the world of football, black footballers have been accepted in the pantheon of the greats. But to achieve commercial recognition is somewhat different: it requires a form of adulation that also spells identification and role model.
Martin Jacques
I was accepted into Cornell in 1979 and went there to follow a finance and business path. I ended up pursuing marketing and sales because I was selected by Procter & Gamble as an undergraduate candidate to go into its brand management program, which is typically available only to M.B.A. candidates.
Reggie Fils-Aime
In order to govern, the question is not to follow out a more or less valid theory but to build with whatever materials are at hand. The inevitable must be accepted and turned to advantage.
Napoleon Bonaparte
If I had not accepted Milan, then I definitely wouldn’t have been called to the national team.
Gerard Deulofeu
I always wanted to be a dentist from the time I was in

I always wanted to be a dentist from the time I was in high school, and I was accepted to dental school in the spring of 1972. I was planning to go, but after the Olympics there were other opportunities.
Mark Spitz
The luxury of time to write, and the confidence to do so, make it easier for the more affluent and when the most decorated novels all begin to resemble each other the tacitly accepted view of what a good novel must be (and must be about) shifts imperceptibly.
Dawn Foster
My ego’s not the kind that says, ‘I want to be an actor and be accepted as that.’
Joe Namath
Like a lot of New Yorkers, I assumed that I knew all about the U.N. I was shocked to find out it’s not like anything I had in mind. There are only six languages accepted there. It’s considered international territory.
Sydney Pollack
But synthesizer music has been accepted as emotional for long enough that it isn’t a huge reach, conceptually, to think of a fake voice as ’emotional’, especially since there’s a human composing it.
Caroline Polachek
In the ’80s everything was accepted and there was a kind of euphoria. The ’90s will be the balance-sheet decade, and only those who give the consumer what they promise will survive.
Maurizio Gucci
MMA has been very accepting. I wouldn’t say that every gym you go to is as open as the gym I’m a part of. But they just accepted me with open arms.
Liz Carmouche
I started off in radio, then made little films for Granada. I applied for a job at ‘Weekend World,’ and they turned me down; I’d also applied to the Foreign Office, which accepted me.
Jonathan Powell
The majesty of the American Jewish experience is in its success marrying its unique Jewish identity with the larger, liberal values of the United States. There is no need anymore to choose between assimilation and separation. We are accepted as equals.
Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
Until I really accepted this about myself and got over any of my own transphobia that I had, I really felt like I wouldn’t be accepted. I thought I would ruin my life.
Chaz Bono
A string of excited, fugitive, miscellaneous pleasures is not happiness; happiness resides in imaginative reflection and judgment, when the picture of one’s life, or of human life, as it truly has been or is, satisfies the will, and is gladly accepted.
George Santayana
Telugu audiences love cinema. They won’t let a good film down, and they’ve proved this with the way they accepted ‘Srimanthudu.’
Mahesh Babu
I enjoy my relationship with straight men. It’s very nurturing. It’s very validating to hang out with straight guys and be accepted. So many of us, we were not accepted when we were younger by straight persons in high school.
Kyan Douglas
In the late 19th century, the theory that the Aborigines were an inferior race that was doomed to die out became accepted as fact.
Richard Flanagan
In chess, everyone’s accepted. That’s what’s great about it. You can be a little bit different. You can be an oddball.
Hikaru Nakamura
Through the music, you can pretty much tell what I’ve been through and what I’ve accepted. And releasing it has made me realize I’m not alone in it, because of the reactions I’ve been getting.
Gabriella Wilson
Even if I accepted that Jesus – like almost every other prophet on record – was born of a virgin, I cannot think that this proves the divinity of his father or the truth of his teachings. The same would be true if I accepted that he had been resurrected.
Christopher Hitchens
When I was a kid, monsters made me feel that I could fit somewhere, even if it was… an imaginary place where the grotesque and the abnormal were celebrated and accepted.
Guillermo del Toro
Everyone’s hip to the fact that we all do things to accentuate our looks – and it’s much more accepted.
Kyan Douglas
It kind of irritates me that I’m seen as this pretty face. People also say I’m too thin. The truth is pretty people aren’t as accepted as other people. It comes with all these stigmas.
Mischa Barton
It used to be, it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.
Ted Cruz
The Crystal Cathedral Ministries, the assets and the buildings, would still be in the hands of the ministries if my father would have simply walked away. When I accepted the role as the next senior pastor, he had agreed to be an ambassador-at-large and raise funds for the endowment fund. He didn’t do that.
Robert A. Schuller
It means a lot to be accepted as an athlete as I have and I can be myself.
Albert II, Prince of Monaco
I figured if you live in a country long enough, you want to be a part of the political process, and you sort of owe it to your hosts. They’ve accepted you. Why wouldn’t you accept them?
James P. Gorman
I’ve always had this feeling wherever I go. Of not feeling fully part of things, not fully accepted, not fully inside of something.
Jhumpa Lahiri
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
I wrote Murder at the Windmill. And it was accepted and we made it and it was the first film I made with Danny Angel, well the only film I actually made… I made a lot of it at the Windmill itself.
Val Guest
Properly practiced creativity must result in greater sales more economically achieved. Properly practiced creativity can lift your claims out of the swamp of sameness and make them accepted, believed, persuasive, urgent.
William Bernbach
Success was one of my weakest points. I was so ill-prepared for it. I never appreciated within myself the gift of success. I never accepted it. People gave me so much momentum and love, and people really got my music, but I didn’t accept it. That’s probably one of my biggest regrets.
Sophie B. Hawkins
I know we’ve had AI films, but they’ve been quite specific in their scope. The scope of ‘Humans’ is a world set up where this technology is universally accepted. I haven’t seen anything that’s dealt with it in that multi-layered, every-layer-of-society way.
Gemma Chan
This is not a screenplay. I don’t do twenty drafts. I’m not going to show this to you until it’s published or accepted for publication. You can make whatever suggestions you want, but I probably will ignore them entirely.
Robert B. Parker
