When I was on a major label I felt obliged to say yes to every interview, tour and whatever else. The label is always telling you, ‘This ain’t going to last,’ so I worked myself half to death. I learnt from that and I like to pace myself now.
Yes, I would have loved to win it, but I have great memories from World Cups. The 2007 tournament – my first – was very special.
I said ‘Brian, no one is going to respect me as a mother after this.’ He said, ‘oh no, yes they will, this is a movie, don’t worry about it.’ But they’re not.
Yes, the world is now flat for publishing as well.
God creates out of nothing. Wonderful you say. Yes, to be sure, but he does what is still more wonderful: he makes saints out of sinners.
Fiction is a kind of compassion-generating machine that saves us from sloth. Is life kind or cruel? Yes, Literature answers. Are people good or bad? You bet, says Literature. But unlike other systems of knowing, Literature declines to eradicate one truth in favor of another.
The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking, ‘Is there a meaning to music?’ My answer would be, ‘Yes.’ And ‘Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?’ My answer to that would be, ‘No.’
You do indeed have a past, but not now! And, yes, you have a future, but not now! You can consume your now with thoughts of ‘then’ and ‘maybe,’ but that will keep you from the inner peace you could experience.
As a songwriter, you respect and appreciate the writings of other people, and I often get asked, are there songs out there I wish I’d written? Yes. There’s many of them!
Yes, there was a sort of underground cult following, which came from nowhere, and grew, and grew. It was quite surprising to us all, because all of us had spent probably the previous five to ten years without it. So it was quite overwhelming. Overwhelming and humbling.
Nuclear power is a young technology – there’s so much more to be discovered. That’s what makes it so exciting to me. Yes, there are problems, but innovative people are going to be able to come up with solutions and bring the technology to its full potential.
I would love to have children, yes. Maybe even adopt them. I’m not sure that I should pass on my genes.
‘Agent Mom’ is a perfect opportunity for me to do what I love… develop characters, act and take incredible stories to my fans. So yes, I can absolutely see myself cast as ‘Agent Mom.’
Yes, free markets tend to produce unequal incomes. We should not be ashamed of that. On the contrary, our system is the envy of the world and should be a source of pride.
I used to get 2000 as pocket money, and I was being offered a car and an opportunity to make lakhs, so I said a yes. I was a kid and got homesick over my 40-day schedule in Bangalore and decided that I would only do films in the South if they were 10-day roles.
I never questioned the integrity of an umpire. Their eyesight, yes.
The best thing is to always keep honest people around, because when you have a bunch of yes men around that know that you’re making a mistake but let you go on with it, that’s when it ruins your mind state as an artist.
I have no idea what goes on in another person’s mind. As a legislator, I need to be good at persuading people, counting votes and getting to 50 percent plus one. I don’t go back and say, ‘Why did this person get to the right position?’ It’s only, ‘Are you yes or are you no?’
Every label thinks, when they sign someone, ‘This is the perfect pedigree to sign. They’re cute, they can sing, they can dance, et cetera.’ And they say to the public, ‘Here, this is what you’re gonna like.’ But you might say, ‘No, I don’t like that!’ You’ll probably say ‘no’ many more times than you’ll say ‘yes!’
I write funny. If I can make my wife laugh, I know I’m on the right track. But yes, I don’t like to get Maudlin. And I have a tendency towards it.
Yes, I would love to play one of the leads in one these movies and have all those challenges and deal with all those complications, but the business being what it is, there is a slot for me in these kinds of films, so I enjoy them, and I enjoy the people that I work with.
Yes, ‘Aagadu’ was a failure. I was dejected for a couple of months, since there was a lot at stake.
I always wanted to be a Broadway girl. But once I got Tony-nominated, it really messed with me, because it was like, yes, I’m getting this affirmation that you’re right where you’re supposed to be, but there was still this voice saying, ‘You’re not good enough.’
Yes, yes, no one denies, for example, that you’re going to be able to fix the Murray through the Living Murray process without money, no one denies that.
Yes, I want to work with Rick Rubin. Yes, I want to work with Trent Reznor. Yes, I want to work with Madlib. Yes, I want to get with all these wonderful people. Collie Buddz, Marsha Ambrosius. I just want to go, man. I’m gonna keep on making music.
If a project feels good to you, say yes. And do it with everything that you have and hope that the outcome is good.
Every time Wimbledon is on, I am thinking, ‘Yes, I could do the same and get out the racket.’ Sadly, not the same results.
If I’m only defined by my sport, I really have failed. Yes, I’ve opened myself up for more criticism, but I’m a professional athlete. I get criticised every week. I’m used to it. It doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt, but you get used to it.
It’s inevitable that if you do okay on something like that you don’t just annoy people, that it will make a difference because it seemed like such a lot of people so, yes I would have to say that it has done.
I believe in soulmates, yes, but I believe you also have to work at love. I happen to believe your soulmate doesn’t have to be your partner – your soulmate could be your best friend, your sibling, it doesn’t have to be the person you marry.
In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.
When you carry out acts of kindness you get a wonderful feeling inside. It is as though something inside your body responds and says, yes, this is how I ought to feel.
Yes, I used to miss my childhood, but I did get a chance to relive it through Esha and Ahaana.
Yes, I had to learn how to live life outside, but I had so many people help me.
Yes. I was the first female colonel. I enjoyed being that kind of role model for young women watching the show. A woman can be a colonel! A woman can be in charge! Those were new ideas then.
Yes, my teacher is the cold.
Yes, the companionship is amazing. You know, you can get that physical attraction that happens is great, but then there’s an awful lot of time and the rest of the day that you have to fill.
I wrote in my book, ‘unPlanned,’ about a church that kicked me out when they found out that I worked for Planned Parenthood. I often get questioned about that, whether I still think they made the wrong decision. My answer is a resounding ‘Yes.’
I try to be healthy. I train three days a week with a trainer. But I do like to eat, clearly. And I do eat dessert every day. If I cut that out, yes, I would lose weight.
But when they offered this little situation for me to do this voice in this special segment, I found it so incredibly humorous that I said yes, and I enjoyed it. It was fun.
Yes, it must be something that goes very well with my voice, let’s say something that I understand that this would be good communication with the others, and I don’t pretend for instance, to look for music that would be something that doesn’t go with my personality.
I’m a dark blonde, yes. I dyed my hair blue, then black, when I was 14. I thought the colour was more flattering and matched my skin tone. I don’t think I’d ever change back unless it was for a film.
We are fans because the game also appeals to our local pride, our pleasure in thinking of ourselves as, yes, Americans but nonetheless different from residents of other towns, other states, other regions.
Yes, love indeed is light from heaven; A spark of that immortal fire with angels shared, by Allah given to lift from earth our low desire.
To say yes, you have to sweat and roll up your sleeves and plunge both hands into life up to the elbows. It is easy to say no, even if saying no means death.
Yes, we become stronger when men and women, young and old, gay and straight, native-born and immigrant fight together to create the kind of country we all know we can become.
A nice person is a ‘yes’ person, whereas a good person is a person who accepts their responsibility in things and moves forward and tries to constantly evolve and isn’t afraid to say no or challenge someone or be honest or truthful.
We’ll see if we ever do another Ministry gig again or not. I’m not saying yes or no yet. All I’m saying is I know there’s no new Ministry studio CDs coming ever again. I promise.
There’s something about the openness of the American people. Yes, we have our faults, but deep down, there’s a goodness. America doesn’t want to take over the world; in many ways, we don’t want to be bothered by the rest of the world.
Yes, I am complimented on my work in Kids in the Hall once or twice a week. It’s a nice feeling.
Yes, I remember the barbed wire and the guard towers and the machine guns, but they became part of my normal landscape. What would be abnormal in normal times became my normality in camp.
The food wasn’t very good in the first kitchen I ever worked in. But it was very busy, so I learnt to be fast, absorb pressure, use a knife, and say, ‘Yes, chef.’
He’s a good tough producer, yes. But I don’t think that he’s unreasonable unless he feels threatened. And when somebody’s in your home, I think everybody in the home gets threatened.
Well if you were asking my personal opinion on that I think the answer can only be yes but it was missed. Much as I know I’m responsible for a lot of things, I can’t wear any responsibility for that.
More than an end to war, we want an end to the beginning of all wars – yes, an end to this brutal, inhuman and thoroughly impractical method of settling the differences between governments.
Do I believe in the supernatural? Oh yes, certainly. I can’t believe, I can’t accept that you die and that’s the end. Physically maybe it is a fact. But there’s something about the mind that’s more than that.
You know the actor John Garfield? In one movie he walked up to this train station, the ticket booth, and the guy says, ‘Yes, where are you going?’ And he says, ‘I want a ticket to nowhere.’ I thought: that’s it. The freedom to do that. I want a ticket to nowhere.
Should the high court be able to roll back state health regulations whose efficacy was at least debatable? If your answer is yes, logical consistency should encourage you to apply this same logic to the court’s consideration of state-level gun control.
I’m in control of myself. I take yes or no from no one.
I never would have believed as a candidate for the U.S. Senate that the U.S. government could buy GM without a hearing, with no vote, yes or no. There are billions and billions of dollars at stake here.
It’s a twin type of telepathy. My sister and I, we share the same DNA, so on paper, we’re the same person. I knew she was pregnant, like, right away – it’s so crazy – but I asked her, and she said yes.
I got a phone call from Jon Favreau saying, ‘I need the voice of a personality-less robot, and I thought of you immediately.’ I thought that was the funniest thing I ever heard, so I said, ‘Yes.’
My interviewing style and my approach to things is that, yes, it’s okay to be sincere; it’s okay to be yourself; it’s okay to be real.
I’m tenacious, I think – I know – and I do also have a quality where if you tell me I can’t do something, if I know I can’t do it I’m the first to raise my hand and say, ‘I can’t do that.’ But there is a big Bronx, New York Jew in me that just says, ‘Really? Really? You think I – yes, I can. I can do it. I can do it.’
I tried marriage. Do I advocate it? Yes. Marriage is a wonderful institution, provided you meet the right person and you be the right person.
Everything happens for a reason. Like, I kind of hear people go, ‘Man, you’ve been in a lot of bands.’ Yes, I have. I’ve also been married several times, too, and every time I get into something, I think, ‘This is the one.’ I think that’s just human nature.
If you were not to set an alarm clock, would you sleep past it? If the answer is yes, then there is clearly more sleep that is needed.
Yes, we do defend our office as we do defend our homes. This is a constitutional right everybody has, and nothing’s funny about that. The only reason they get mad at the Black Panther Party when you do it is for the simple reason that we’re political.
When I arrived in Manchester for the first time, it took me five seconds to realize that it was a very different place than where I come from. It is cold, yes, but people also do things very differently than we do in Nigeria. The culture was different, and everything looked different.
China and the U.S. need each other very badly. Yes, we should argue about some things, but it’s not an ‘us versus them,’ it’s an ‘us and them’ type scenario.
After the final no there comes a yes and on that yes the future of the world hangs.
Yes, the more I go through life I realize that there’s really no separation between practice and art at all. The two things more and more become one rather than two different aspects of my life.
Yes, for my undergrad I majored in Criminal Justice and minored in Political Science and English.
I actually think the whole concept of retirement is a bit stupid, so yes, I do want to do something else. There is this strange thing that just because chronologically on a Friday night you have reached a certain age… with all that experience, how can it be that on a Monday morning, you are useless?
Successful negotiation is not about getting to ‘yes’; it’s about mastering ‘no’ and understanding what the path to an agreement is.
Acting is a strange profession, and, yes, sometimes I struggle with its worth, its value in the world.
Over the years, I’ve learnt how to strike a balance between both my lives and give quality time to my passion as well as to my family. Yes, it is tiring at times, and every working woman goes through the phase.
People are ready to say, ‘Yes, we are ready for single-payer health insurance.’ We are the only industrialized country in the world that does not have national health insurance. We are the richest in wealth and the poorest in health of all the industrial nations.
I look at light as a material. It is physical. It is photons. Yes, it exhibits wave behavior, but it is a thing.
Yes, I was a parish priest for five years. I was a curate in a large working class parish in Bristol and the Vicar of a village in Kent.

So I think that, yes, anything that makes it more palatable and easier to understand, such as a Virtual Centre, has to be seen as a primary activity within the educational and information global state.
Yes, the European model remains superior to that of America and Japan.
But, yes, now I wouldn’t do some of those soundtracks the way I did them.
Do you want an interesting job? Yes. Do you want a balanced life? Yes. And to make a contribution as well? Of course.
I always have hard-boiled eggs with me to eat egg whites for protein. Even when I travel, I bring eggs with me so I don’t eat the plane food. Yes, I’m the person you do not want to sit next to with hard-boiled eggs.
Most of the things we decide are not what we know to be the best. We say yes, merely because we are driven into a corner and must say something.
As I look over my work, I mean every time I look over my early work, I see, yes, I could do that then and then I could do that and that… That may be the hardest thing for a writer, at least for a poet, to tell what the identity of his work is.
As for finding comfort in the zone, I’m comfortable singing what I write. I like writing emotional and slow, melodious songs. I haven’t tried singing songs from other genres, but yes, I would like to give them a try.
Luck always favours the brave. And you must remember that brave are the people who follow their heart; brave are the people who take chances in life. Which also means you have to say no sometimes. I believe the power of no is greater than yes.
Do you feel good in your role? If yes, that’s the perfect time for you to experiment with something new, to get out of your comfort zone. This willingness to learn is probably the most important thing for leaders of today and tomorrow.
Well, now I would like to kidnap Johnny Depp and yes, Ranbir Kapoor for sure.
Millions of ordinary Americans may suffer from a toxic combination of ignorance and amnesia, but the victims of U.S. coups, invasions, and bombing campaigns across the globe tend not to. Ask the Iraqis or the Iranians, ask the Cubans or the Chileans. And, yes, ask the North Koreans.
Yes, but if you take that crap and put a star in it, then you’ve got something.
Did I haze the Miz? Hell yes!
Yes, and many times it’s frustrating, because I’m simply part of the show, and I’m not in the creative end of it, who goes out with detectives and tries to find these things out.
But, on balance, we seized the marketplace. We’ve got a great infrastructure. And yes it’s struggling in some areas because of some external factors and some internal factors.
Yes, because when you’re in love, you are shy.
Yes, there are directors I admire, the mavericks. Altman. There are many good directors.
I have practically no private life. I’m already used to this and ready for it. Yes, sometimes it is hard, but it is the choice I made.
Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.
I eat a little bit of everything and not a lot of anything. Everything in moderation. I know that’s really hard for people to understand, but I grew up in an Italian family where we didn’t overdo anything. We ate pasta, yes, but not a lot of it.
‘Yes’ is a far more potent word than ‘no’ in American politics. By adopting the positions which animate the political agenda for the other side, one can disarm them and leave them sputtering with nothing to say.
I don’t think you can say yes to every opportunity and work the weekends and work the overnight shift unless you’re really passionate about your job. So I encourage everyone to find their passion and go for it.
I love all Yes music and love to play it live, but I’m most interested in making new music with Yes.
There are opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry, the insurance industry, so yes back home we are talking about investment opportunities in Morocco for various sectors of our economy and we will continue to do that.
I say time and time again – yes, cooking is wonderful to cook for your loved ones and see them eat the food but the most important thing is getting them all sat around the table together.
Yes, I’m going to be the President of the United States. You know why? You think you can get chicks by being in the movies? You can really get chicks by being the President.
When the Hollywood thing happened, I thought at some point I’d get to the front of the queue: ‘Yes, hello, I’d like to play that role.’ But you don’t. You just join a different queue.
It’s so important as a creative person to go out and look for things. Go to galleries, talk to people, read books. Yes, you can just type something into Google, but if you read and interact, you’ll have a deeper understanding of the world.
For me, being able to engage with the details when necessary, when there’s a challenge, when there’s a particularly important pivot, yes, you have to do that. But in general, a leader needs to trust their commanders, needs to trust the team they’ve assembled, to actually execute in the right way.
To have ego means to believe in your own strength. And to also be open to other people’s views. It is to be open, not closed. So, yes, my ego is big, but it’s also very small in some areas. My ego is responsible for my doing what I do – bad or good.
I hate the terminology of ‘costume’ because my clothes are not costumes at all. I think they’re high fashion, avant-garde, and more couture, definitely, and yes, some of my pieces are not particularly wearable, but I wouldn’t say they’re costumes, I’d say they’re more couture.
Yes, young men, Italy owes to you an undertaking which has merited the applause of the universe. You have conquered and you will conquer still, because you are prepared for the tactics that decide the fate of battles.
As a grown adult, if you can’t look a woman or look a man in the eye and say, ‘I have serious feelings for you’ and instead you have to say, ‘Do you like me? Check yes or no,’ like we’re in grade school, that to me is a red flag of maturity as far as a relationship goes.
It’s good fun, yes, but when we play, we take it seriously and want to do well.
Yes, I have made a woman cry.
Yes, we believe in globalization and trade, but we also believe in you being able to benefit from that more. For too long, we progressives have seemed like part of the system. We need to start thinking about whether or not it’s delivering for us now.
Yes, my mum had a huge influence on my life and the love she had for me, the love we had between each other, did sway me to not do bad things. Sometimes they say the street raised you, but my mum did the raising.
I can’t really put it in one sentence because although on one hand Preacher is about faith and yes it is also about, I suppose, the search for God, the search for faith and the manipulation and the abuse committed by figures in whom I suppose people have faith.
When it comes time to write the book itself I’ll shut the lights out, picture the scene I’m about to write then close my eyes and go at it. Yes, I can touch type.
I want a smaller government, yes, but I want a government that will be fair.
Yes, but with the Cube there are many flashes, there are many aha’s.
Yes, I’ve been down the pike and back. And through the years, I’ve heard different songs with scatting in it, and it was – always cracked me up as kind of a funny style of music, you know? When I did it, it kind of cracked me up as a comedy kind of routine.
Among players, coaches, people who know football, yes I feel I get recognition.
I don’t know why so many people in America hate Hillary Clinton; I found her to be one of the most gracious, intelligent, perceptive, and, yes, classy women I have ever met.
I’m very confident that not only will the other candidates who ran for this office support me but all of their supporters will as well. So yes, I’m very confident that I will get their support.
Life and death matters, yes. And the question of how to behave in this world, how to go in the face of everything. Time is short and the water is rising.
After you’ve watched your dad beat the crap out of Charlie King or some other bad guy in about forty movies, you pretty much always said, ‘Yes, sir,’ and meant it.
Yes, I’m religious. God has shown me things, made certain ways clear to me.
I love technology – yes, I have fallen in love with older cars, but I’m all for new technology.
Oh, yes; you Virginians shed barrels of perspiration while standing off at a distance and superintending the work your slaves do for you. It is different with us. Here it is every fellow for himself, or he doesn’t get there.
Yes. I’ve been asked to pose nude, but I never have, and I probably never will.
We need someone with superb judgement in their own right because, yes, a president can hire the best advisors on Earth, but I guarantee you this: Five advisors will give five different opinions. And it is the president – and the president alone – who always makes the final call.
I think women have long been defined by their roles as procreators and wives, and we’re expected to serve, take care of, say ‘Yes,’ and not ruffle any feathers. Women, in particular, are sometimes not allowed to consider who they are outside of the roles that they play.
I’m sometimes asked if I get bored with talking about ‘Kevin,’ and of course, the short answer is yes. Nevertheless, after a long slog in the literary trenches, I never take a single reader for granted and always remind myself that for new readers the unfolding story is fresh.
If someone comes up to me and asks me for a photo, if they do it politely, I’m always going to say yes.
Yes, we have the freedom to do what we please, but it only works because we don’t do everything we might please – we should exercise some degree of personal, and corporate, responsibility.
I didn’t think I would be prime minister, because I didn’t consider it. But that’s the power of saying yes, because there will be a moment when someone asks you to do something beyond your comfort zone. I am not unique.
Yes, Indian wrestling has improved since foreign coaches came in because the skills and techniques they have is new to us.
Yes, I am a failed playwright. I had three shows on Broadway by the time I was 30. They all flopped, and I fled.
People are dying who haven’t had that opportunity to say yes to the Lord.
Los Angeles is not a town full of airheads. There’s a great deal of wonderful energy there. They say ‘yes’ to things; not like the endless ‘nos’ and ‘hrrumphs’ you get in England!
Yes, living voices in a living language, so it seemed to us.
I am a little bit of a softie, yes. Actually I don’t think it’s softness, I think it’s kindness.
Words, yes, formulating things, creating something from your heart, it is something very necessary, yes.
Some things is made by destiny, yes, other things by hard work, but quality you don’t learn. Quality you are born with.
Here’s a vice: I say yes to too many things. I wish I had the guilty pleasure of saying no. My goal is to try to do less, but more fully.
Yes, thanks to God… my life has a goal, much more important than my artistic activities, that is the struggle against Leukemia.
As a footballer, I have always found it better not to be too emotional. Better to be cool, consistent, clinical. Celebrate goals, yes, but keep your feelings for those you trust most.
Yes, we do need better representation, but I’m a big believer that we also need to talk about the Uluru Statement of the Heart. We need all of Australia to understand what it was, and is, and what that movement is about.
Do I believe in plastic surgery? Yes, if something is wrong and you can modify it. For certain people, it’s right.
I think Sadio Mane is lucky the way Liverpool play. His job is pretty much to stay on one half of the field. Yes, he does come back and help out defensively every now and again, but generally he’s told to stay in the attacking half of the field and go at defenders.
Yes, Leander locked me out. I’d gone with my child for a birthday party. Leander and his mother were running out of the building as I was entering. They even put my clothes in boxes and threw them out.
Yes, it is one of my ultimate aims – it is the ultimate sense of football: to make the people happy, to let them live some emotions that you usually can’t get.
It’s my first record since my son is old enough to understand and I can’t even show it to him. Yes, it’s affected me, probably in the opposite of how anyone would have thought.
I proposed to my wife on Brighton Beach, and she said yes. That’s pretty romantic. Even though I forgot to go down on one knee because I was too busy trying to compose the question.
So, yes, we do celebrate America today because the majority will stand up and empower the American people to live that American Dream and to be part of making a better, freer, and safer world.
It would be very discouraging if somewhere down the line you could ask a computer if the Riemann hypothesis is correct and it said, ‘Yes, it is true, but you won’t be able to understand the proof.’
Yes, influences are enriching, and they can be found in every work of art, even the most original.
I’m not interested in being easy anymore. Readable, yes. Easy, no.
Yes, the Bechdel Test. It’s named for Allison Bechdel, who is a comic book creator. The test is, are there two named women in the film? Do they talk to each other? And is it about something other than a man? I actually think the Bechdel Test is a little advanced for us sometimes.
When you’re starting out, say yes to everything you can.
Say yes to everything.
If we’re discussing women’s empowerment and equal rights, then yes, I support it.
I’m such an impulse buyer. I once went into a pet store for dog food and left with a fish tank and five fish. And yes, of course I forgot to buy dog food.
Yes indeed I have gained a lot out of playing scales and etudes.
But how odd that in this heathen nation of empty pews, where churches’ bare, ruined choirs are converted into luxury loft living, a Labour government – yes, a Labour government – is deliberately creating a huge expansion of faith schools.
Yes, America must do the right thing, but to provide moral leadership, America must do it in the right way, too.
Yes, but don’t forget I also have the luxury of the worlds finest band when it gets lonely.
Joining Yes was one of those stupid things that you do sometimes. It was one of the two or three times in my life that I’ve done something that I knew was wrong.
In a storm of struggles, I have tried to control the elements, clasp the fist tight so as to protect self and happiness. But stress can be an addiction, and worry can be our lunge for control, and we forget the answer to this moment is always yes because of Christ.
I always thought I was a good person, a decent person. I never harassed anyone or touched anyone. And you say to yourself , ‘Oh, that’s good enough,’ but yes, I had certain jokes that I always assumed the audience would understand. This is Persona.
I have been called the human jukebox, yes. But karaoke is not meant for people who can sing!
Yes, it is a rehearsed show, yes, it was analogy of going to see a play at the theatre, where everything has to be in place and whole things, everything being works, all works together to get the best effect you know it’s more like an actor learning a part.
Faith is not simply a patience that passively suffers until the storm is past. Rather, it is a spirit that bears things – with resignations, yes, but above all, with blazing, serene hope.
Yes, there is a story about Agent Orange, and we knew that it harmed our troops and we knew how long it was to get the medical community to accept that, the military to accept it, the VA to accept it.
Our business is about technology, yes. But it’s also about operations and customer relationships.
I really rebel against this idea that politics has to be a place full of ego and where you’re constantly focused on scoring hits against each one another. Yes, we need a robust democracy, but you can be strong, and you can be kind.
You know, my family and friends have never been yes-men: ‘Yes, you’re doing the right thing, you’re always right.’ No, they tell me when I’m wrong, and that’s why I’ve been able to stay who I am and stay humble.
Oh yes, I love gadgets.
Yes, I mean, There’s nothing like it. There is an added sense of pressure because of that, but there’s also nothing like the thrill you get being in the same space with that audience right there and then. And when you do it, it’s over.
The depths of the Depression. You didn’t ask what the job was, what the pay was, you didn’t ask about stock options, or – you said yes.
Yes, I am Canadian, having sailed here from England on a Russian boat called the Alexander Pushkin when I was the ripe old age of 4.
However, yes, especially as one gets older, you know, you really hope that your music will become more generally available, even though some of the performances might be riddled with faults.
Everything changes as a mother. Yes, work has changed. The projects that I choose are even more important to me now. The world he’s growing up in and the kind of stimulus that is out there; they are so precious and I’d do anything to protect him.
The pretty girls get all the good stuff. Oh, God. So not true. I unlearned this after years of coaching beautiful clients. Yes, these lovelies get preferential treatment in most life scenarios, but there’s a catch: While everyone’s looking at them, virtually no one sees them.
At the moment I am a little bit politician, yes. I think that could be my next step. It is not because I want power, it is because of what I think I could do for the people.

Yes, indeed, in fact I would tell you that we go out of our way to be true to the original feeling and sort of sonic and musical pallet that we painted with back then.
When people ask for time, it’s always for time to say no. Yes has one more letter in it, but it doesn’t take half as long to say.

I don’t mind if somebody comes up to me and shakes my hand, but if I’m in the middle of a restaurant and somebody asks me for a picture, I can be a jerk and say no, or I can say yes and draw more attention to myself, which is exactly the opposite of what I want.
In the underlying bill, I think the authors of the legislation, those in support of it, understand the use of the Mississippi River. Yes, there is commercial navigation on it, and there will be tomorrow.
Yes, I believe the will is very important. It’s how I have succeeded in life.
It is no accident that I made Cartoon Town a simple little village – in many ways it mirrored my home town. And, yes, many of my puppet characters took on some of the more eccentric characteristics of people I knew there.
I went into a French restaraunt and asked the waiter, ‘Have you got frog’s legs?’ He said, ‘Yes,’ so I said, ‘Well hop into the kitchen and get me a cheese sandwich.’

If an apprentice does not hear what a master hears, is then that quality not present in the music? Yes and no. In the world in which the apprentice lives no.

Yes I still enjoy playing him. He’s the best person to play isn’t he?
Conspiracy theories themselves are big business, of course, selling books, videos, conferences, and all kinds of merch. Then there is the economy that promotes conspiracy theories to sell goods such as supplements, survival gear, and yes, bunkers.

In a way, yes, because I was starting something fresh, and it was something totally independent.
We think of our prison inmates as the dregs of society, and we scorn them and push them off to the side and forget about them. We have to remember that they are humans, and they have rights, and yes, they did wrong, but we all have one shot at doing wrong, you know?
Yes, President Abraham Lincoln was a Republican, but a hundred years later, the Republican Party wasn’t Lincoln’s. Richard Nixon became president by courting Americans upset by integration, intentionally fueling the racial divide.
I dislike the word ‘self-help.’ Self-awareness, yes, but not self-help.

The oldest, shortest words – ‘yes’ and ‘no’ – are those which require the most thought.
Yes, the experience of all stages of life are valuable, not just of youth.
I stand by it. I take the criticism for it. I think it’s unfair, but yes, there is a thing about nepotism, and we all try to respect it.

Almost everything in ‘A Day With Wilbur Robinson’ has some basis in truth. And yes, my sister did pay me to feed her grapes while she talked to her boyfriend on the phone.
Yes, but another writer I read in high school who just knocked me out was Theodore Dreiser. I read An American Tragedy all in one weekend and couldn’t put it down – I locked myself in my room. Now that was antithetical to every other book I was reading at the time because Dreiser really had no style, but it was powerful.
Yes, it’s absolutely true that anything worth doing is worth doing poorly – until you can learn to do it well.

Yes, guns are to men what jewelry is to women!
And yes, the Homesteaders, including my grandparents who left behind almost nothing, and arrived in Montana with nothing but the clothes on their back, high hopes, faith in God and dreaming of the future.
Yes, iD is a machine vision and sensor browser for the physical world. That’s what we have been working on with Coca-Cola, Verizon, Bank of America and Disney to launch content when an image is recognised.
I’m one of those people you can tell ‘no’ a million different ways, and I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to figure out some way to get you to say ‘yes.’ People have always underestimated me. I have great stamina, great tenacity.
Yes, well I really hope I can make a difference, even in the smallest way. I am looking forward to helping as much as I can.
I’ve gotten death threats, yes. I have. I think anytime you shine a spotlight on homosexuality or minorities and you try and say they are as normal or as worthy as acceptance as others, the people who are on the fringe don’t like that and they will come after you. And they have come after me.
So in one sense you don’t have the classic keyboard player in Yes.
Yes, I am proud, and very humble too.
You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip.
Having the courage to say no when all your friends are saying yes is one of the most difficult things you’ll ever have to do. Doing it, however, is one of the biggest charges you can ever make to your personal battery. I call this ‘won’t power.’
I studied in American school, so yes, I grew up speaking English and Spanish. Obviously, Spanish is my first language.
My mother used to tell me, No matter what they ask you, always say yes. You can learn later.
I get asked this question a lot. Am I really pro-life? Am I against abortion in all circumstances? Yes. Do I believe there are any exceptions for abortion? No. Do you want to make abortion illegal? Yes.
Well yes so far, I was recently in Germany and they had me do six book signings a day and that was too much so I had them cut it down to about three. It becomes taxing at times but its a lot of fun and you meet a lot of nice people.
Yes, I mean, I used to be into the big bulk thing, and that’s why my legs look like those of a cyclist instead of a shooter’s, but I think there is a point to where too much is not a good thing. I think I try to lower my center of gravity by doing a lot of legs.
It was important that I became successful. People say they do it for the love, and yes, you do it for the love, but you want to be successful.
Did I put them in contact with the people to acquire them? Yes. Did I educate them on how to use them properly, and what way, shape, or form, and when, and with what supplements? Yes. Absolutely.
Eat some pizza, play some Xbox, watch some TV. Gross? Maybe. Me? Yes.
I find Godzilla exciting because he/she/it comes from the sea. It’s entirely plausible that it could be real. Yes it is! It doesn’t take a huge stretch in the imagination to imagine that something may be living at the deepest depths of one of our oceans.
Yes, we’ve still got more work to do. More work to do for every American still in need of a good job or a raise, paid leave or a decent retirement; for every child who needs a sturdier ladder out of poverty or a world-class education; for everyone who has not yet felt the progress of these past seven and a half years.
Am I bossy? Absolutely. I don’t like to lose, and if I’m told ‘no,’ then I find another way to get my ‘yes.’ But I’m a loyal person.

What is our destiny? Does it matter? Is it bound up with ‘our’ planet? In my opinion, yes.
Yes, prudently invested contributions to the Social Security fund may bring greater dividends, but those contributions would also face a greater risk. It would be like gambling. We should not gamble with the investments and the future of the citizens of this land.
