I grew up believing my sister was from the planet Neptune and had been sent down to Earth to kill me. I believed this because my sister Emily convinced me of it when I was a toddler.

There are times when I’ll send a manuscript to an editor, and I’ll think it is the most likely project I’ve ever sent them. And they might call me the next morning and say they couldn’t tolerate it. That happens so frequently that I’ve given up any expectation of knowing what anybody’s going to like.

One of the things that gave me most pleasure was a letter sent to me by Sebastian Vettel, written in his own hand, full of beautiful words and kindness. I wasn’t expecting this; usually, drivers don’t do this: they drive, and that’s it. But he is a beautiful person.
We must expect reverses, even defeats. They are sent to teach us wisdom and prudence, to call forth greater energies, and to prevent our falling into greater disasters.

No one wants to be sent to prison, including me.
We’re all imperfect. And wouldn’t it be great if the message sent out by the mainstream media is that we’re fine being exactly who we are? Wouldn’t that be great for everyone?
The story of Jesus makes no sense to me. God sent his only son. Why could God only have one son and why would he have to die? It’s just bad writing, really. And it’s really terrible in about the second act.
When we are asked to bail out corporations and banks, or pass tax bills that shift billions in public dollars out of government, we must ask ourselves, who were we truly sent here to advocate for?

I’ve sent thousands of emails – the conversations in the book are just the success stories.
Just because something’s legible doesn’t means it communicates. More importantly, it doesn’t mean it communicates the right thing. So, what is the message sent before somebody actually gets into the material? And I think that’s sometimes an overlooked area.

A fan sent me a pair of fluffy winter socks, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s cool. I’ll wear them to bed. It’s cold; it’s winter.’ But they were worn. They were black underneath, and they stunk, and I hate feet. She was like, ‘I’m giving you my favorite pair.’
My sister and I said, Dad, are you doing to do anything about that? And he mentioned treatments other people sent him that he’d been working on. So we thought it would be kind of cool to give these guys a real script.

Should President Clinton have killed Osama bin Laden when he had the opportunity in 1990s? Should President Bush have sent the U.S. military into Iraq to depose Saddam Hussein in 2003?

About half the scripts sent to me feature characters I just can’t identify with, particularly one-dimensional businessmen or, if it’s a comedy, some absurd 10-year-old Japanese stereotype, some role related to IT or business… There’s no point in getting mad about it; it’s just the way things are.
I remember the first time my friend Colin Lewis, who used to be a judge with me on a show on MuchMusic called ‘disBAND,’ told me, ‘I think I just found your next favorite artist to adore.’ He sent me The Weeknd, and he was completely spot on. The Weeknd is literally on every playlist I have.
I was the only person I’d ever met who had a record contract. None of the E Street Band, as far as I know, had been on an airplane until Columbia sent us to Los Angeles.
Authors are often sent a number of books to read for possible review and advance praise. It can be easy for new books to get lost in the pile.
I was picked up on a London street by a model agent. She took me to her office and then sent me to Paris to work in shows. It was supposed to be two weeks, but I ended up living there with my Zimbabwean boyfriend. I made enough money modeling and acting in French movies to buy a nice flat.
When we first sent missions to Jupiter, no one expected to find moons that would have active volcanoes. And I could go down a long list of how often I’ve been surprised by the richness of nature.
Duane Eddy is somebody I wanted to play like. I discovered him before The Beatles, and he totally got to me. He sent me a note back in 1977 and said that he really liked what Cheap Trick were doing. That’s one of those ‘Wow!’ moments, you know?
In an era when information can be sent instantaneously anywhere, it is utterly nonsensical that our Nation’s police, the fire, and EMS personnel cannot consistently communicate with each other.
How do you top ‘Mormon?’ I get sent scripts all the time and I don’t know what I would do next. What do you do after that? So I think if you do see me onstage, you’ll see me in something dramatic, maybe, or you’ll see me try my hand at something else. Perhaps fail, terribly, but try.
I sent out a tweet, ‘Dancing with the Stars’ should stop the jibber jabber. They shouldn’t make the departure of a dancer so tear jerky because nobody’s going to war.
When a PR person asks why is it a big deal that they got your name wrong or sent you a pitch on something you would never cover, it’s because when you get hundreds of those a day, it’s incredibly annoying. It’s basically like having telemarketers call you all day long for something you never want to buy.
And we broadcast tapes sent to us from Americans against the war. These were most effective I believe.
I have never used my office for anything other than the purpose in which I hold it – to represent the people who sent me to Washington.

Fame has sent a number of celebrities off the deep end, and in the case of Michael Jackson, to the kiddy pool.
I created ‘Captain Underpants’ when I was in the second grade. I was constantly getting in trouble for being the class clown, so my teacher sent me out into the hallway to punish me. It was there in the hall that I began drawing ‘Captain Underpants’. Soon I was making my own comic books about him.
My mum sent me to an open audition for ‘Notes On A Scandal’ so I could see quite how many other girls wanted to do this. And I queued up, and I got the job. That was my first-ever audition, and my second was ‘Atonement.’
When I was growing up as a young lesbian in the ’50s, I looked in vain for books about my people. I did find some paperbacks with lurid covers in the local bus station, but they ended with the gay character’s committing suicide, dying in a car crash, being sent to a mental hospital, or ‘turning’ heterosexual.
Don’t get me wrong; it’s not like I didn’t go out and have fun. But there’s been a lot of players that come to New York and get caught up in the lifestyle, and before you know it, they’re sent away to another team because it affected their performance.
The best way to honor our troops, the less than 1% of our country’s population who voluntarily put their lives on the line in service to our country, is by making sure that when they are sent into combat, it is the last option, not the first, and that the mission is worthy of their great sacrifice.
Even though my brother and I loved scrumping – we loved the act of climbing trees and grabbing fruit – there was always fear we would be caught. We feared we’d be imprisoned, sent to Australia.
Now and then an innocent man is sent to the legislature.
I came home in the afternoon to sleep, and there was this e-mail from Comedy Central saying they were interested in having me be part of this new show called ‘Jump Cuts’! So I called them right away, and the producer started laughing and said, ‘We sent that e-mail one minute ago – you’re so fast!’
I believe I was sent to Washington to fight for and defend our traditional values of smaller government, lower taxes, a strong national defense, and the lives of the unborn.

I sent some scenes from ‘Life on Mars’… and then I didn’t hear anything for about 48 hours, and I was sure that I wouldn’t get this. Then I got a phone call saying, ‘They want you to take the role of Jim Shannon on ‘Terra Nova,’ and would I be interested!
We didn’t plan one of my kids; they just kind of happened. So I’ve just kind of taken each one as a blessing sent to me by God.

It’s always crude to link Dickens back to the blacking factory where he was sent to work aged 12 when his father was imprisoned in Marshalsea Prison for bad debt, but it was obviously a huge part of him.
I was raised in a Jewish family, but since I was adopted, my parents sent me to Hebrew school and Bible chapel, so I got the best of both worlds – singing in both a choir in Bible chapel and a chorus in Hebrew school. It shaped me and my voice.
I was sent off to study in Georgia to keep me from movies. When I outgrow this film career, I will become a practicing doctor. I want to specialize in cardiology.
When I was doing Bond, I was always being sent scripts to play the derring-do hero, with explosions going on all around.
Prayer is commission. Out of the quietness with God, power is generated that turns the spiritual machinery of the world. When you pray, you begin to feel the sense of being sent, that the divine compulsion is upon you.
I graduated from college in Ohio and bummed around for a while, and then I joined VISTA, which was a domestic Peace Corps kind of thing, and they sent me to Colorado.
The president said nothing about the views of government in regard to the possibility of Carolinas seceding. This however was frequently spoken of by other statesmen at the North. I think they were unanimous in this, that no army would be sent here.
It is a better thing to save souls for the Lord than to save treasures. He who sent forth his apostles without gold had not need of gold to form his Church. The Church possesses gold, not to hoard, but to scatter abroad and come to the aid of the unfortunate.
I guess that’s what I was: a set of abs. And they lit the abs and shot the abs and sent the abs on their way. The photographer didn’t look at my face once. I was humiliated.
So many times, you get sent scripts where it’s, like, the token chick, where the woman is just there to serve the man in the film.
No matter what, your parents are going to worry about you. I had a tour bus, and my mother still thought I was broke. Remember: It’s your life, not theirs. Just because your parents sent you to college doesn’t mean they bought the rest of your life.
One of my earliest memories… I knew three full verses of the Star Spangled Banner when I was seven or eight years old. And one of the nuns discovered this phenomenon and I was actually sent around from classroom to classroom to do the whole thing.

With ‘Start With Me,’ I sent it to Gunna and he sent it right back. I didn’t have to ask him. If I send you a song, you gonna vibe to it and if you don’t, it’s cool.
I was incredibly determined – I wrote short stories, I wrote the beginnings of novels. I wrote a little children’s book and sent it to the editor-in-chief of the children’s division of Simon and Schuster and she asked me to write a little children’s book for a series she was doing.
I read pretty much every tweet that’s sent to me and often reply.
With ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ I had to leave a couple of times – I got another show, and I had a baby – so they sent me off to rehab. If I hadn’t left, they probably would’ve killed me off by now.
For a long time, there was this rumor that I turned down doing ‘Austin Powers,’ which is not true. While they did send me the script, I don’t think I was ever a serious consideration to direct it. I’m sure they probably sent it to 20 others as well.
I went from being a player who had received just a few yellow cards in his career to a red card in a World Cup. It was a devastating moment for me. It was my first game in the World Cup, so I was excited and thankful for the opportunity. Being sent off was a big blow.
The Israelites’ slavery in Egypt is the equivalent of our slavery to sin. God sent Moses to deliver them from bondage, and He sent Jesus Christ to set us free.

I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.
Since I’m allergic to various things, the army wouldn’t accept me during the war, and I got into the Office of War Information, which sent music to Europe.
The release of ‘Lungs’ was so hard. It was terrifying, because it was the first time doing everything. The first experiences of media exposure were almost paralysing. I spent a lot of time crying on the floor of the studio – it sent me a bit mad.
Most Americans in both red and blue states reject and resent the message being sent by Hollywood and some in the media that values are subjective, to be defined by the individual and not by God.
The Secure Fence Act, which authorizes the construction of 700 miles of security barriers along the southwest border, has now been sent to President Bush for his signature. This piece of legislation is an important piece of the border security puzzle.

While on the space station, I kept up with news a couple of ways – Mission Control sent daily summaries, and I would scan headlines on Google News when we had an Internet connection, which was about half the time.

Anime has sent me all over the world, introducing me to people who have touched my life in indescribably profound ways.
Hyde-Smith was sent to Washington because she believes in empowering the American worker by reducing taxes and cutting unnecessary red tape – and because she’s committed to preserving your Second Amendment right to bear arms.
I write songs for the same reasons most artists write songs -because I have to, whatever that means. Because I want to talk about myself or have demos that need to be sent off. I like doing it. It’s my job and I like doing it. For the most part, it’s pretty easy for me.
My ’24’ death obviously sent Jack Bauer into a huge downward spiral.
I invented animals and birds – I had about two dozen. After working on them for six months, I sat down and just for fun wrote two dozen poems to accompany the drawings. It was for no one to every see, but a friend sent me in to an editor.
In 1978, when I was a non-Congress chief minister, we distributed surplus wheat among labourers. Later, when we visited a village, I asked a labourer whether he knew who sent the wheat. ‘Yes, Indiraji – only Indiraji helps the poor.’ Indiraji was a symbol for the weaker sections.

My dad left when I was a little boy and I grew up with my mother’s family. There were foundations in the U.S. where Jewish people got together and sent money to Cuba, so we got some of that. We were a poor family, but I was always a happy kid.
On paper, being good sounds great but a lot depends on the atmosphere of the workplace or community we live in. We tend to become good or bad depending on the cues sent out within a particular space.
Sometimes life gives us lessons sent in ridiculous packaging.
I’m always getting sent new stuff, so I have to incorporate digital equipment into my sets, but I try to play vinyl as much as possible. It’s just the best-sounding format still. And I’ve been using vinyl since I started deejaying, for over 15 years, so it also just feels the most natural for me.
One of the greatest technicians of all time was a man named W. D. Gann (1878-1955). He had tremendous success predicting market moves much in advance.

Before ‘Memphis,’ I had never considered working on a musical. But when Joe DiPietro sent me the script, I heard the entire score in my head.

Many thanks for all of the love and good wishes sent our way from my friends out there in cartoon land… the only place where a nine month pregnant woman can still play a hot goth chick in a belly shirt!
When I went through my divorce, I decided that I was going to pray this time for someone. Then, God sent me someone. I prayed for the specific qualities I wanted in a man, and I wasn’t going to settle for anything less.
I am fortunate that I get sent scripts and get to meet people I would never have met had I not done ‘Harry Potter.’ But I feel I had to come out of that show and prove that I am not a one trick pony and can do other stuff.
My mother sent me to psychiatrists since the age of four because she didn’t think little boys should be sad. When my brother was born, I stared out the window for days. Can you imagine that?
I’m married to Kevin, a photographer whose career has put him on the campaign trail with presidential candidates and sent him on assignment to far-flung places for long periods of time. It was sometimes rough when our children were small, and I was beginning to write in earnest.

I get sent a lot of scripts where you’re just the mom.
My parents sent me to a dance class, so it was a road chosen by them, not me. But I enjoyed it so much I knew I would become a performer.
My parents couldn’t afford physical therapy, so they sent me to dancing school. I learned how to dance in heels, which means I can walk in heels. And I’m from Jersey, and we are really concerned with being chic, so if my friends wore heels, so did I.
I think a lot of stuff like people’s emails getting hacked or that an email you sent is stored on a hard drive somewhere, that kind of stuff worries me a little bit. It’s a weird thought that someone else could get into my information that easily. That stuff’s pretty scary.
My fans’ love and support keep me going. I’ve a cupboard which comprises letters, cards, and gifts sent by my fans. They encourage me whenever I feel low.
I was very chatty and talkative and always getting sent out of class for talking too much and not paying attention, passing notes.
There’s always a thrill to see a guy’s face when you sent ’em packing because you’re gonna be the last person they thought about, the whole offseason.
There’s so many confusing messages that you’re being sent about being pretty but not too pretty, smart but not too smart, ambitious but in a way that makes people comfortable. It’s very hard to navigate.
I had a situation where Bill Clinton sent the F.B.I. after me.
Pre-Internet, maybe it took six months for a fashion message to get across to a customer base. Fashion messages are now being sent out overnight, simultaneously, to every market in the world.
I kind of like to keep it very minimal. I get a lot of products sent to me, and I like to try them, but I end up just literally washing my face and putting on moisturizer and toner.
They sent me the script, and I was dubious at first. I said, ‘Lost in Space? They’re reviving that? They tried to do that with the film, and it didn’t work.’ And then I read the script, and I actually liked it.
In the middle of my sophomore year, I was sent to boarding school, at the Cranbrook School for boys, in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, where I fell in love with Marilyn Monroe. I knew that she was the most beautiful woman in the world, and yet she was in pain, in need. She was unhappy. I believed that I could help her.
Once I accidentally left my passport in Nice, France, when I was on my way to Prague. Upon arriving in Vienna, after taking an overnight, and being asked to present my travel documents and realizing I forgot them at the hotel, they kicked me off the train and sent me back!
I still like complete sentences that are grammatically correct without spelling errors. I don’t always achieve this, and it is irksome to read a message I have sent and discover errors. I know I often leave out words in e-mail, not by choice, but because of the way my brain works.
I sent one e-mail in my life. I sent it to Jeff Raikes at Microsoft, and it ended up in court in Minneapolis, so I am one for one.
I hadn’t learned to read by third grade, which wasn’t unusual for some kids. I knew something was wrong because I couldn’t see or understand the words the way the other kids did. I wasn’t the least bit bothered – until I was sent back to the second-grade classroom for reading help after school.
We’d only speak Korean at home. They wouldn’t let us have sleepovers and sent us away to Korean church camp during the summers. We had weird food concoctions, too, so instead of spaghetti bolognese, we had rice bolognese with kimchi.
I can remember an Inter-Verona and we arrived at the stadium an hour and a half before kick-off and there were already 85,000 fans screaming our names. It sent shivers down your spine. I am proud of one thing and that is that I really gave all of my energy for those people.
My faith grew strong, and I sent a letter (as I was ordered) to the Rev. Dignitary of the Cathedral of Exeter. I was assured, before I sent it, he would not answer it.
Earnestness is stupidity sent to college.
I met with Hitchcock when I was a very, very young actress just starting out and he was making ‘Frenzy’ in London and I was sent along to meet with him. He was very, very unimpressed with me and I have to say, I was rather unimpressed with him – but only because I was an arrogant, ignorant young actress.
I think the first rule of comedy is that it has to be funny and I find a lot of the broad comedy which is sent to me, painfully unfunny.
My acting ability would have sent me back to the post office. It was my singing that got me jobs. Ironically, now, people think of me as an actor and don’t know me much as a singer.
