Fittings are boring, but it’s fun when you get to wear something new and go to a new event. I have a massive say in what I wear – I work really closely with my stylist.
Conor Maynard
Democracy is not a spectator sport, it’s a participatory event. If we don’t participate in it, it ceases to be a democracy.
Michael Moore

I believe that when people experience an event as a community, it can transcend and change people’s lives.
Andy Serkis
If you’re going to be hosting any event or a performance or having dinner with people after a performance, it is work, but it’s also social: food and a glass of wine would be involved often.
John Tiffany
Edge goes out every night, and not just on pay per views; every night, Edge goes out there with the intention of stealing the show. I know that he felt like his title run had not been given the respect from the company that it deserved, and he was really hell-bent on proving that he belonged as a main event guy.
Mick Foley
I had a hip replacement a couple of years ago. I have a song about that. And why wouldn’t you? It strikes me that that was a huge event. It’s kind of funny and horrible and interesting, so why wouldn’t one write about that?
Loudon Wainwright III
‘Death with dignity’ is our society’s expression of the universal yearning to achieve a graceful triumph over the stark and often repugnant finality of life’s last sputterings. But the fact is, death is not a confrontation. It is simply an event in the sequence of nature’s ongoing rhythms.
Sherwin B. Nuland
I think the live show is a different kind of catharsis. It’s an event. It’s supposed to be entertaining. To keep myself entertained, I like to play a rock n’ roll show. I still kind of feel like I’m a rock n’ roll musician anyway.
Jason Isbell
One of the things I think we’re learning to do as the twelfth insight emerges is to be discerning without being judgmental, because condemning someone certainly feels like a comic event that brings other things back on you.
James Redfield
The author himself is the best judge of his own performance; none has so deeply meditated on the subject; none is so sincerely interested in the event.
Edward Gibbon

Perez Hilton
I love the Cannes Film Festival. From the lavish parties and events to the red carpet attire, this star-studded week-long event is where I get a lot of inspiration for hair and fashion.
Tabatha Coffey
I personally have no shame in saying I am extremely interested in fashion. I am not as interested in trends. I won’t go on Style.com unless I’m looking for stuff to wear to an event, or there’s a designer I am interested in.
Josephine de La Baume
I’m drawn to stories about ordinary people who get tangled up in an extraordinary event or idea or emotion. I’m not saying I don’t love films about super-people or super-doctors, but my preference is for stories about how we get through this life, what it is to be human, because I’m always struggling with it myself.
Sophie Okonedo
I would not have an event before the majors. I would build them up. It very rarely happens that a player plays the week before, wins the event, and then goes on to win the slam.
John McEnroe
The foodstuff, carbohydrate, is essentially a packet of hydrogen, a hydrogen supplier, a hydrogen donor, and the main event during its combustion is the splitting off of hydrogen.
Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
I used to stay up at night and sneak into the TV room, past my parents, who were asleep, to watch Saturday Night’s ‘Main Event.’ That’s how I started watching SNL. On accident.

Norman Mailer
There is no such condition as ‘schizophrenia’, but the label is a social fact and the social fact a political event.
R. D. Laing

Luanne Rice
When it comes to war, we focus more on the mainstream coverage of the event, rather than the event itself. People dying is never funny. Protest puppets are always funny.

If you ask two people to remember a specific event, the stories are going to vary wildly because we always make ourselves out to be the hero.
Aja Naomi King
Social economic problems do not exist everywhere that an economic event plays a role as cause or effect – since problems arise only where the significance of those factors is problematical and can be precisely determined only through the application of methods of social-economics.
Max Weber
This is the home of hurdling, and the Americans are the kings of the event.
Dayron Robles
At midnight on July 1, 1997, Hongkong, the British Crown Colony, will be restored to China. This is not only an event which will be celebrated by patriotic Chinese; any patriotic American should celebrate it as well.
Robert Trout

Gloria Allred

Mick Foley
In the event of a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic dystopia, people with supplies of food and water could become warlords or chieftains in the social order that emerges out of the rubble.
Nish Kumar
There were 'big stars' at the Alamo! Bowie, Crockett! I

There were ‘big stars’ at the Alamo! Bowie, Crockett! It is a huge political event because it, and the events at Goliad and San Jacinto, changed the look of a map of America. America would be a very different place if Texas had remained Mexican.
Phil Collins
Traditionally, photography is supposed to capture an event that has passed; but that is not what I’m looking for. Photography brings the past into the present when you look at it.
Julian Schnabel
There isn’t a single American city, in my estimation, that has sufficient plans for a nuclear terrorist event.
Irwin Redlener
If I’m doing an event, if it’s a charity event, where it’s a walk-around event, where I gotta put a thousand small plates out in the course of a four-hour event, I gotta make sure I can do something that I know I can produce, that’s going to be consistent and good all night long.
Tom Colicchio
Of course the Munich tragedy was the biggest event in my career and the most terrible.
Jim McKay
You can’t recover memories of a missing event. That’s a fallacy.
Betty Hill
I am the best in the world. It’s 1: Cody; 2: Kenny; 3: Okada; 4: Charlotte; 5: Cena, with Ospreay creeping up on the list. It’s my responsibility with the event to live up to that ranking. I am unbelievably good at this because of hard work and dedication.
Cody Rhodes
If I felt, in the event of a royal wedding, inspired to write about people coming together in marriage or civil partnership, I would just be grateful to have an idea for the poem. And if I didn’t, I’d ignore it.
Carol Ann Duffy
I’m just always a bit thrown when, in the immediate aftermath of some event which makes us feel like either God’s out to get us or He’s not doing His job as well as He can, we all still get together and continue to ask Him for help.
Paul Feig
American Made is not just an event. It’s a movement to spotlight and support the next generation of creative entrepreneurs who are turning their passion for making into thriving small businesses.
Martha Stewart
I hope one day I will host my own charity event to give back to society.
Yani Tseng
We all get damned in our lives, and there are ripple effects. One thing can determine a life, and it’s hard to overcome that if the event is really traumatic. Your life is completely condemned by it.
Matthias Schoenaerts
Exposition has legitimate uses. It’s the most efficient way to summarize background information, including necessary information about a character’s history. It can set the stage well for a major dramatized event.
Nancy Kress
A teacher is never too smart to learn from his pupils. But while runners differ, basic principles never change. So it’s a matter of fitting your current practices to fit the event and the individual. See, what’s good for you might not be worth a darn for the next guy.
Bill Bowerman
While starving refugees in Homs were providing target practice for government snipers, Bashar al-Assad’s strongest international backer was in Sochi, at the Iceberg Skating Palace, visibly moved, smiling with deep satisfaction, as the Russians beautifully glided and leaped their way to the gold medal in the team event.
George Packer

Tabitha Soren

Craig Venter
For some reason, the fans got behind me, and I don’t know exactly why that is. I wasn’t supposed to main event WrestleMania XXX, but the fans were so vocal about it that the fans had no choice but to put me in the match. I’ve had a lot of lucky breaks.
Daniel Bryan
Maybe come to think about it, that is the sign of an extrovert, in any event I have always from the earliest of ages found it difficult to wander into a restaurant on my own.
Roger Moore
Vietnam was the defining event for my generation. It spilled over into all facets of American life – into music, into the pulpits, in churches of our country. It spilled over into the city streets, police forces. And even if you were born late in the generation, Vietnam was still part of your childhood.
Tim O’Brien
When people first started watching UFC, it seemed like a no-holds barred event… early on it looked like all the fighters were crazy. Actually, there are a lot of techniques, and the reality shows have let people see the fighters behind the scenes.
Randy Couture
There’s this whole new grammar Twitter skill set that I do not possess. I’m not a very good person to follow. I never tweet, and when I do, it’s about some sort of sporting event that I’m watching.
Sterling Knight
What I found was when I started my first study, and then in subsequent studies, is here you have people under some kind of duress, or I chose to study them because they represented some kind of historical event, as it impacted on them or as they helped to create it.
Robert Jay Lifton
In a film score, the last thing you want to do is take people out of the movie. The music is secondary. In opera, the music is the main event.
Stewart Copeland
In 2013, before the publication of my fourth novel, I met with a stylist at Nordstrom. Since then, I’ve rarely shopped for ‘event clothes’ on my own. I usually do it with my sisters or a friend; if I’m alone, I take pictures of myself in the dressing room and text them to my sisters.
Curtis Sittenfeld
There is a new venue for theory, necessarily impure, where it emerges in and as the very event of cultural translation. This is not the displacement of theory by historicism, nor a simple historicization of theory that exposes the contingent limits of its more generalizable claims.
Judith Butler
A drawing is an autobiographical record of one’s discovery of an event – either seen, remembered or imagined. A ‘finished’ work is an attempt to construct an event in itself.
John Berger
One of the best parts about my job is that I get to dress for red carpets and appearances, and I often forgo working with a stylist because fashion is half the fun of any event!
Mary Lambert
In a still hot morning, the tide went out and didn’t come back in. This was not a spectacular event. The sea did not roll up like a scroll, like the sky in Revelations. It quietly withdrew.
Ruth Park
When I'm at an event, I like to be an eccentric dresser

When I’m at an event, I like to be an eccentric dresser. I will just keep wearing what I like.
Eva Green
I shy away from showing cruelty on the page. A lot of the violence in my books actually happens off stage. The police come on to the scene after the event has occurred.
Tess Gerritsen
White people think one thing and black people think another thing about the same event. And we automatically, before we really know what happened, kind of pick our sides.
Benjamin Watson
I’m following a real event and real people.
John Landis
It’s all about the crowd and what type of event I am DJing. If it’s a corporate party, I keep things upbeat but light. For late night events, I really turn it up with dance songs and trap hits.
Hannah Bronfman
You have to go into every event with 100 percent confidence and just surf your best because everyone there is there to win, and no one is going to give you the heat. You have to win by a mile to really make a heat.
John John Florence
In a well-monitored storage site, it is always possible to release CO2 in a controlled manner in the unlikely event that it threatens to escape. Such a release is certainly no worse than ignoring the emission in the first place.
Klaus Lackner
The reason why the tag teams are not main event level attractions in the WWE is because Vince McMahon doesn’t like it and doesn’t present it that way. He’d rather make individual stars.
Jim Cornette
In February 1991, I was rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles to have my feet amputated. Three years earlier, I had broken the national 100 meters hurdles record while a student at UCLA and was a favourite for the event at the 1988 Seoul Olympics.
Gail Devers
The only thing worse than the Pastor Terry Jones scheduled Koran burning is the fact that he canceled the proposed event.
Henry Rollins
Whenever a Gujarati or Sikh businessman comes to a Republican event, it begins with an appeal to Jesus Christ. While the Democrats are really good at making the outsider feel at home, the Republicans make little or no effort.
Dinesh D’Souza
I once saw my mother playing Mary Magdalene in a parish event. But she had to put the role aside in order to go and front the choir who were singing at the same occasion. She left the stage halfway through the Crucifixion.
Fiona Shaw
Squash has the credentials to become an olympic event and our goal is to see the sport in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. We are working towards this and will keep trying even if our bid is not successful.
Jahangir Khan
When we had the ‘flash crash’ in 2010, where the price of some stocks briefly fell to zero, high-frequency trading played a big role in that event.
Brad Katsuyama
You’re at a party or an event, and you’re interacting with other people, but there’s no shame in getting your camera out and getting your perfect angle. It’s bizarre to me.
Dylan Penn
My advice is that it’s easier to write than direct. If you have an interest in writing, write. You might as well start with yourself or some event you know well, and you need a point of view.
Barry Levinson
I do get pissed off when I’m at some gay event, and there’s a 25-year-old, and he has no idea who I am. And I say, ‘You need to know more about your gay history, boy.’ I think the younger generation takes it a little bit for granted.
Martina Navratilova
The Masters is one of golf’s greatest traditions and Augusta is one of the best courses in the world. They are synonymous. It’s an event that every golfer, and golf fan, looks forward to.
Mike Weir
Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins is an event where actors and actresses will come out, and I give all credit to Oscar for that.
Bernard Hopkins
I’m really disappointed at every event if I don’t do less than what I wanted to do.
Shaun White
We’ve seen smaller guys in main event fights, and they do well. It just takes the right combination of people I think. I think Dominick Cruz v. T.J. Dillashaw could have main-evented a PPV and done pretty good.
Daniel Cormier
I may never get back to the track. The problem was that I was dominating my event, and the winning became slightly boring. I wanted new challenges, and I’ve got that on the road.
Bradley Wiggins
My to-do list is so long that it doesn’t have an end; it has an event horizon.
Craig Bruce
A historical event represents the best and the worst of that moment.
Rachel Kushner
The most important event I covered was the Panama Canal debate, which dragged on for months.
Jessica Savitch
The NSA is not listening to anyone’s phone calls. They’re not reading any Americans’ e-mails. They’re collecting simply the data that your phone company already has, and which you don’t have a reasonable expectation of privacy, so they can search that data quickly in the event of a terrorist plot.
Tom Cotton
Christmas… is not an external event at all, but a piece of one’s home that one carries in one’s heart.
Freya Stark
How much the greatest event it is that ever happened in the world! And how much the best!
Charles James Fox
The 200 m. is not my best event, and it’s something I am learning.
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce
The most pressure I felt was for the first ‘Paranormal Activity,’ because when it was released, whether it was going to be a hit or not, I knew it was going to be a life-altering event for me.
Oren Peli
I was born too late to experience Apollo 11, though I do trek to Dad’s house every time there’s some space event. There’s something awesome about crossing your fingers and watching a tense Mission Control room do their thing.
Andy Weir
9/11 was a hugely overblown event that only assumed its

9/11 was a hugely overblown event that only assumed its overarching importance a) because it was done to the United States and b) because of the way the U.S. reacted.
Martin Jacques
It’s really interesting to me how all of us can experience the exact same event, and yet come away with wildly disparate interpretations of what happened. We each have totally different ideas of what was said, what was intended, and what really took place.
Marya Hornbacher
Before a big event, I usually go to church and light a candle for St. Sebastian, who is the patron saint of athletes.
Simone Biles
‘I Will Not Be Broken’ has really become very healing for me. Any time you go through a cataclysmic event… it’s going to inform the richness that you sing from… The experiences of life make all your emotions, I think, deeper.
Bonnie Raitt
In the evening every man looks the same. Like penguins. Women have a special dress for that event; men, the same tuxedo.
Roberto Cavalli
Working with Woody Allen is like filming Howard Hughes’s will. It’s a very mysterious and strange event. You never get a peek at the whole will.
Michael O’Donoghue
The journalistic vision sharpens to the point of maximum impact every event, every individual and social configuration; but the honing is uniform.
George Steiner
Acting comes first. I would love to make an album. I was at an event… for Dionne Warwick, and we got to go in the studio and go crazy. I love singing, but it’s very time consuming. I have to make time for it.
Raven Goodwin
Louise Brown’s birth marked the end of the beginning of human IVF, acclaimed at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This event was snubbed by some clinicians now styled as ‘pioneers’, who shouted that the test-tube claim was a fake! They did not matter.
Robert Edwards
I don’t really like the Oscars; it’s a commercial promotional event. It helps immeasurably to sell films, but it’s hardly the Nobel prize.
Richard Attenborough
Once we truly grasp the message of the ‘New Testament’, it is impossible to read the ‘Old Testament’ again without seeing Christ on every page, in every story, foreshadowed or anticipated in every event and narrative.
Michael Horton
The AAC is the best amateur event in the region and the most important tournament to me every year.
Guan Tianlang
‘America 24/7’ will be a landmark series in documentary photography and the watershed event of the new digital photography age.
Rick Smolan
I love the State Fair. It’s an event that really brings the urban and the rural Minnesotans together. Rural people get a chance to mix with the urban folk and see what the cities have to offer, and urban people get to remember where their food comes from and who produces it for them.
Amy Klobuchar
Happy to see that the Automobile Club of Monaco, opened its doors to the public to attend a considerable event. The promotion of this event will be made by the image and by the text, but still by word of mouth.
Jacky Ickx
Life is a glass of wine and having your feet washed – it’s a biblical event, might I add. This is part of mankind’s story. You are always looking for a moment to take a break.
Mick Fleetwood
We talk about cancer as a noun, as if it’s a one time event: ‘I’ve got cancer.’
David Agus
Remember that failure is an event, not a person.
Zig Ziglar
A typical practice consists of practicing every event for about an hour. A lot of people assume I have private coaching, but I work out with 13 other girls at the gym!
Shawn Johnson
In the organization of any major sporting event or the planning of a building, long-term thinking is key.
Richard Attias
Elimination race is my thing. I really enjoy that event.
Laura Trott
Nakamura, to me, is a main event star.
Mick Foley
I don’t know where the ideas come from, and it’s terrifying. They seem to be absolute flukes. When I was in my 20s, I’d walk around with a notebook all the time and make sure I wrote down anything that occurred to me. Now I’m just hoping that some sort of event will descend on me.
Stewart Lee
May it be long before the people of the United States shall cease to take a deep and pervading interest in the Fourth of July, as the birthday of our national life, or the event which then occurred shall be subordinated to any other of our national history.
Samuel Freeman Miller
I’ve been applying makeup long enough to feel good doing it on my own, but I cannot do my hair to save my life. When left to my own devices, if I have to go to an event, I do a slicked bun. Otherwise, I just try to wear a hat, put it in a ponytail, or do a side braid – something easy.
Kourtney Kardashian
There have been so many incredible moments since the start of this organization. One that stands out specifically is when an anonymous businessman triple-matched our donation to Memorial Sloan Kettering after our NYC event.
Yael Cohen
The future of humanity is going to bifurcate in two directions: Either it’s going to become multiplanetary, or it’s going to remain confined to one planet and eventually there’s going to be an extinction event.
Elon Musk
I want to get another Olympic medal outside the team event.
Nathan Chen
I have to remember if I’m at some charitable event where kids are… I try to remember don’t swear in front of the kids!
Kevin Spacey
We have the best sporting event in the world in polo, and yet it is weak.
Facundo Pieres
No single event can awaken within us a stranger totally unknown to us. To live is to be slowly born. It would be a bit too easy if we could go about borrowing ready-made souls.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I've just always been interested in alter-naturalism an

I’ve just always been interested in alter-naturalism and seeing if you can make real life interesting enough to be dramatic without enhancing it. Like, could you make a movie or write a play in which there’s no compression of time, there’s no enhanced event, it’s just real life?
Kenneth Lonergan
It was an event whenever ‘CHiPs’ would come on in my house. There wasn’t a lot of Latin people being hired to star in TV shows or movies back in the day. Not only was it a fun show, there was a Latino starring in it – so we thought it was extra cool.
Michael Pena
I got a lot of publicity, but it steamrolled. Event organizers weren’t used to that kind of behavior, so later, they tightened the rules.
John McEnroe
I think everyone in the heptathlon is improving together, so it is a very hard event to compete in.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson
I shy away from plot structure that depends on the characters behaving in ways that are going to eventually be explained by their childhood, or by some recent trauma or event. People are incredibly complicated. Who knows why they are the way they are?
Rachel Kushner
In the world of energy politics, the sudden vanishing of the word ‘coal’ is a remarkable and unprecedented event.
Jeff Goodell
First-ever woman to have an iron-man match. It’s been such a long time, to be the second woman ever to main event a Raw.
Sasha Banks
I realized a very long time ago, that I was never going to be the guy who, ‘Oh, you look so big, let’s push him in the main event and see,’ or, ‘Oh, this guy’s got the best physique ever, let’s put him in the main event and see.’ It was always going to be the hard way.
Kofi Kingston
Rather than realizing immediate physiological gain, the challenge is more about reducing the mental attrition from the two days to maximize each event.
Ashton Eaton
In any event, it’s not exactly a secret to regular readers what my views on the war are.
Garry Trudeau
You base your actions on a projected ending, which you actually don’t know. However, when you reach the crucial point, and the pinnacle event doesn’t occur, you just need to go on, and something else will happen.
Elif Batuman
A self-fulfilling prophecy is an assumption or prediction that, purely as a result of having been made, cause the expected or predicted event to occur and thus confirms its own ‘accuracy.’
Paul Watzlawick
You think about someone’s well-being or someone’s health as obviously being way more important, than any sporting event you could win.
Denny Hamlin
Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.
Brian Tracy
I have a black pair of suede Jimmy Choos. I’ve only worn them once to a Sony event. The heels have these arrow plates in a pattern. There’s gold, black and white and they’re amazing!
Jessica Mauboy
Art cannot be looked at as an elite, sacred event anymore. It has to be embraced as an accessible, popular form, which is what I believe theater is at its roots.
Diane Paulus
My best event is probably… it actually varies day by day. But the high bar – it’s the most fun for me. A lot of people like it. It’s risky and dangerous. I like the adrenaline rush.
Sam Mikulak
Pete Rozelle used television to get the game to the American public by creating the Super Bowl and making it the biggest sporting event in the world.
Will McDonough
Democracy is not something that happens, you know, just at election time, and it’s not something that happens just with one event. It’s an ongoing building process. But it also ought to be a part of our culture, a part of our lives.
Jim Hightower
I don’t want to stand on stage night after night, without being on my face beforehand truly crying out for those that have come to the event.
Jeremy Camp
Sometimes when I am photographing a major news event, I am suddenly overwhelmed by helplessness.
Lynsey Addario
I listen to a lot of podcasts, which are split down the middle between comedy and board game podcasts, and a couple of eclectic ones like ‘The Dinner Party’ from NPR, where they take an event that happened that week in history and give you a cocktail recipe inspired by it.
Rich Sommer
Life is so constructed, that the event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.
Charlotte Bronte
We don’t use Hubble to stare at Jupiter unless there’s a special event or some special reason.
Heidi Hammel
There is no greater feeling in business than building a product which impacts people’s lives in a profound way. When we look around at the thousands of people who have attended Summit gatherings, it makes us smile to see the new friendships, business partnerships and philanthropic initiatives that each event produces.
Elliott Bisnow
The literal resurrection of every soul who has lived and died on earth is a certainty, and surely one should make careful preparation for this event. A glorious resurrection should be the goal of every man and woman, for resurrection will be a reality.
Ezra Taft Benson
Psychologically experienced consciousness is therefore no longer pure consciousness; construed Objectively in this way, consciousness itself becomes something transcendent, becomes an event in that spatial world which appears, by virtue of consciousness, to be transcendent.
Edmund Husserl
In any event, colonization and the grant of lands were provincial matters.
Albert Bushnell Hart
For an event that was wholly created in the poisonous psychological warfare kitchens of the Second World War, run by the ministries of propaganda in many countries, not just by the British or the Americans, but also the Russians and undoubtedly the world Jewish organizations.
Ernst Zundel
It was the greatest thing in the world getting fat. Every meal out was an event. Or we’d go to Italy and we’d have pasta, truffles, and dessert and then plan the next incredible meal. It was a happy-go-lucky time. I never had so much fun.
Kirstie Alley
A crisis, by its very nature, is a negative event.
Judy Smith
We are accountable for what happened at Dan River and h

We are accountable for what happened at Dan River and have learned from this event.
Lynn Good
It means a lot to be back in New York. Particularly since one of the last senior event scheduled in the States was supposed to be here in New York. We were supposed to play in Central Park right after 9-11 and when 9-11 happened obviously things changed.
John McEnroe
We have a substantial number of countries that have pledged and provided all kinds of support for the United States in the event that war becomes necessary in Iraq.
Douglas Feith
Being a celebrity you always get really good seats to sporting events but you never get as good seats as the photographers get. And I really love sports. So one of the scams I have going now is I want to learn sports photography so I can get better seats at a sporting event.
Drew Carey
A lot of celebrities have a sense of humor, and combined with an outrageous event, sometimes the sky’s the limit!
Chris March
It seems so easy to write about some normal event and twist it a little bit to make it into a supernatural event.
Arthur Slade
When people grow up in atmospheres of violence or atmospheres of poverty, they don’t normally use hi-falutin’ language to describe those things. They would describe some brutal event the same way we would describe getting a taxi or missing the bus.
Philipp Meyer
We live in a society that has ever-changing values and ever-changing standards and ever-changing criteria to determine who is a superstar or not. If you want to be a superstar, if you want to main event, if you want to profit in the entertainment business, you have to go with those trends and spearhead new trends.
Paul Heyman
If the British Fleet were lost or captured, the Atlantic might be dominated by Germany, a power hostile to our way of life, controlling in that event most of the ships and shipbuilding facilities of Europe.
Wendell Willkie
Long after this wonderful event in the Earth’s history, when the human species was spread over a good deal of Asia, Europe, and Africa, migration to the American continents began in attempts to find new feeding grounds and unoccupied areas for hunting and fishing.
Harry Johnston
I am a chameleon when it comes the way I dress. I am constantly changing it up, and I really can’t commit to one thing because dressing for the day or for an event is really a mood thing. I like variety, and I don’t mean just designers, I mean mixing the high-end garments and the cheaper clothing.
Darby Stanchfield
The World Cup is a truly International event.
John Motson
The world of crime is a last refuge of the authentic, uncorrupted, spontaneous event.
Daniel J. Boorstin
I explained I wanted to descend as quickly as possible to camp IV in order to warm myself and gather a supply of hot drink and oxygen in the event I might need to go back up the mountain to assist descending climbers.
Anatoli Boukreev
One of the great challenges of being a modern historian is interviewing multiple people who were all there for something, some event. No one’s version matches up 100% with other people’s, even if it’s three or four people on a conference call.
David Garrow
If any event teaches you how to perform on no sleep, it’s a hurricane.
David Muir
And Clinton was like that – he saw the whole playing field. He didn’t just see the event that he was at or the circumstances of that week or that month. He saw the whole playing field all the time.
Dee Dee Myers
Whenever I talk to people who founded a company, I often like to ask the prehistory questions ‘When did you meet? How long have you been working before you started the company?’ A bad answer is, ‘We met at a networking event a week ago, and we started a company because we both want to be entrepreneurs.’
Peter Thiel
We all wake up at our leisure; the kids know not to wake me up. Then we make breakfast or go out to eat with family. There is usually a sporting event or two to watch!
Josie Bissett
I knew that my staying up would not change the election result if I were defeated, while if elected I had a hard day ahead of me. So I thought a night’s rest was best in any event.
Benjamin Harrison
Ask anyone where they were when they heard of Diana’s death, and they won’t hesitate, because nobody can forget. Along with 9/11, it remains the most poleaxeing public event, news so shocking it made me shake, and drove everything else from my mind for days.
Michael Portillo
Mostly it would be those who rode in a particular even would hang out with those who rode in the same event.
Chris LeDoux
Every day is different when I’m home, but mainly I just surf. There’s no nightlife or shopping, so it’s pretty mellow but really nice to come back to after a trip or an event. If you’re traveling, you’re all stressed out, then you get to Kauai, and nothing matters anymore.
Alana Blanchard
It was an incredible experience performing for the members and attendees at the Diamond Resorts Invitational; it was such an impressive event, and I was honored to be a part of it.
Cole Swindell
If you believe that feeling bad or worrying long enough will change a past or future event, then you are residing on another planet with a different reality system.
William James
I’m the ‘Showstoppa’, the Main Event, the icon!
Shawn Michaels
Pain leaves a mark, the degree depending on the person and the event.
Chevy Stevens
I think South Africa has shown it can host such a big event as the World Cup, so why not hold the Olympics at some point in Africa? Maybe not just in one country but in a host of countries.
Jochen Zeitz
When I worry about privacy, I worry about peer-to-peer invasion of privacy. About the fact that anytime anything of any note happens, there are three arms holding cell phones with cameras in them or video records capturing the event ready to go on the nightly news, if necessary.
Jonathan Zittrain
The signing of the Israel-PLO accord is more than a political milestone. It is a transformative event which touches every Jewish family – physically, emotionally, spiritually.
Shimon Peres
). Dozens of nations have agreed to join in monitoring and, if necessary, intercepting and boarding ships on the high seas in the event they are suspected of engaging in one or both of these threatening activities.
Frank Gaffney
I'll absolutely be focusing in on the defense of this n

I’ll absolutely be focusing in on the defense of this nation and making sure that our men and women have the proper tools, training, and equipment to do their jobs, that they have clear rules of engagement and, in the event that something happens to them, that we have a VA system that actually works.
Darryl Glenn
Backstage, I get sleepy, and want to curl up and snooze. I never get nervous, whatever the event. I feel quite detached until I walk on stage, and then some gear inside me clicks and off I go like a wind up doll.
Pete Townshend
Going to the movies was a big event in my youth. My father would be the initiator – he’d have me put on a jacket to see a film.
Ralph Fiennes
The U.N. must be a good steward of the funds entrusted to it. Abuse and waste are therefore not a mere public relations problem. Institutional reform is not a one-off event, like applying a fresh coat of paint.
Paul Kagame
One of the reasons why we were so successful in integrating with Facebook was because we saw people using Facebook to promote their event and link back to Eventbrite before Facebook Connect and before the event’s API was even available.
Julia Hartz
Five days after the Tsarnaev brothers blew up Boston’s most sacred event, and just 24 hours after one brother was killed and the other was caught, everyone decided that it was OK to play baseball at Fenway again. The game happened on a Saturday afternoon, preceded by an emotional ceremony and many prayers.
Bill Simmons
In 1968, in the midst of the tumultuous 1960s, the Olympics were much more than just another event.
Peggy Fleming
We aren’t upset when Paramount makes a $200 million movie that flops, but if a charity experiments with a $5 million fundraising event that fails, we call in the attorneys. So charities are petrified of trying bold new revenue-generating endeavors and can’t develop the powerful learning curves the for-profit sector can.
Dan Pallotta
The World Cup, as an event, carries a lot of pressure, irrespective of the number of caps you have earned, and the pressure doubles when you play at home.
Mithali Raj
World War II was a historical event, but also a movie genre, and ‘Fury’ occasionally prints the legend. The rest of it is plenty grim and grisly. Audience members may feel like prisoners of war forced to watch a training-torture film.
Richard Corliss
Ronda Rousey changing the game for MMA, you know? Dana White said he’d never have a girl in the Octagon. Ronda Rousey comes along, and she’s the main event any time she’s on. The women, I feel, in the UFC are stealing the show.
Becky Lynch
Hockey suffers from being compared to itself in ways that other sports are not. Every four years, some of us fawn over Olympic hockey, a great event with bigger rinks, minimal goonishness and national pride in addition to the heightened skills of veritable all-star squads.
George Vecsey
In my world, history comes down to language and art. No one cares much about what battles were fought, who won them and who lost them – unless there is a painting, a play, a song or a poem that speaks of the event.
Theodore Bikel
I made it to London aged six, an event I recorded in my diary with coloured markers to convey my sense of occasion. And in 1983, after graduating from college, I returned to spend two years at Cambridge University.
Jean Hanff Korelitz
I’ve been very fortunate to be involved in all the Super Bowls, to see some World Series, to cover heavyweight championship fights; I’ve been to the Olympics and seen every sporting event there is.
Will McDonough
We live in an experience-hungry society with advanced event technology and broad social reach at our fingertips. These external factors offers an ideal environment for organizers to create a connection with a broader set of people and maximize each interaction with their audience.
Julia Hartz
Javelin throw is a very technical event and a lot depends on the day’s form.
Neeraj Chopra
The 200 m. is the event I want to get better at.
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce
The heptathlon world record is nice, but the decathlon is the event. I think the heptathlon is more like a practice. There is something completely different about the decathlon.
Ashton Eaton
So long as the Oregon question is left open, Mexico will calculate the chances of a rupture between us and Great Britain, in the event of which she would be prepared to make common cause against us. But when an end is put to any such hope, she will speedily settle her difference with us.
John C. Calhoun
‘Fahrenheit 9/11’ is astounding. Not so much as a film – although it is cunning and moving – but as an event.
John Berger
As a pastor, you get invited into the most poignant moments of people’s lives. Whether it’s a wedding or a funeral or a hospital visit, you get invited into the center of the event, whether or not you know the people.
Rob Bell
We went around and looked and talked to a lot of foundations with those charities and decided upon the Children’s Hospital. They had a golf tournament at the time, but it was a small event that didn’t raise a significant amount of money.
Tom Kite
I was in ‘Cliffhanger’ years ago, so I’m a massive fan of the big event movies – the good ones – but there’s a lot of crap that’s made in between the good ones. It’s just the superhuman films that I can’t get my head around. I guess if you’re a fan of them, then you love them.
Craig Fairbrass
If ‘Trek’ is a hit, we’d love to do a series of films – a regular event. Look at James Bond’s films. They’ve been around since the early sixties.
Gene Roddenberry
My nightmare of nightmares is being overdressed for a casual event – I’ve done it! You have to have a real sense of what you want to communicate.
Nina Garcia
I was introduced to 7 Charming Sisters at an Emmy Award Show event. When they approached me to become a brand ambassador, I was over the moon about working with the brand. What impressed me even more as a disability advocate is the fact that the company is dedicated to employing people with disabilities.
Jamie Brewer
I love traveling. But I haven’t had big, transformative experiences while on the road. When I go out on the road, it’s to go out and get a story or do a promotional event.
Ira Glass
I do have a library of events I can talk about and I always expect to find a different point of view on it so even if I talk about the same event in the same town it’s fresh.
Leo Kottke
Whether you are right in the middle of a glamorous event or watching it from the sidelines, the red carpet Oscar events set the stage to showcase the latest designs and styles for those watching around the world.
Brad Goreski
My favorite event each year is the Yankees-Red Sox series. Love seeing passions run hot among the fans, especially when both teams are in the running for the playoffs.
Elizabeth Banks
Until 1869, when they were banned, debtors' prisons wer

Until 1869, when they were banned, debtors’ prisons were the great incinerators of British reputations. Those who were unable to pay their bills were jailed until their creditors were paid – an unlikely event, given that the prisoner was unable to work.
Tina Brown
When I go out or to an event, I’ll wear blue jeans and a shirt. And sometimes when I go to an event I’ll wear camouflage. It depends what kind of mood I’m in.
Si Robertson
My favourite way of getting ready for a red carpet event is to turn the hair and makeup time into a bit of a pre-party. I use the same artists all of the time, so we know each other so well – so it’s a ‘hanging with friends’ session. Music, lots of laughing, and food – because you must eat before the event.
Behati Prinsloo
I grew up in the Holiness Church, where prayer was an event.
Iyanla Vanzant
I recently had the opportunity to participate in Inc.’s first-ever ‘Hire Power Awards’ event in Washington, D.C. The event was a testament to the power of American entrepreneurship and the role that it plays in driving job creation and innovation in a wide array of industries.
Karen Mills
Early in life I had noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper.
George Orwell
In the event of the death of a current or former President, like the recent death of President Ronald Reagan, the flag should be flown at half-staff for thirty days from the day of the death.
Mike Simpson
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child’s world and thus a world event.
Gaston Bachelard
And ‘Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll’ was a very transitional film for me in that I was one of the producers and you know, came up with the idea with the writer and the producer, as well. But, it was a very collaborative event. You know, I really love working in that way.
Andy Serkis
The first time I ever heard Airborne Toxic Event, my friend was turning 11 or something. And he had a paintball birthday party where him and me and two of our other friends went out to these paintball courses and I got obliterated. I don’t think I got one hit.
Finneas
Every relationship that we have in our lives – our contact with each person, place, and event – serves a very special, if yet to be realized purpose: They are mirrors that can serve to show us things about ourselves that can be realized in no other way.
Guy Finley
Our kids seldom even get to see a movie. When we go to a movie, it’s an event – and we make it an event.
Eve Arden
This is a once in a lifetime event. It is very rare to remove 86% of the currency in circulation in one go. The logistics of such an operation are mammoth.
Urjit Patel
People talk about me in ‘Arcadia’ and I think I was okay in it but I’ve given better performances in other productions that didn’t have the same impact. But I knew ‘Arcadia’ was going to be an event and I wanted to be part of it.
Rufus Sewell
In 2010, there was a TED event called Mission Blue held aboard the Lindblad Explorer in the Galapagos as part of the fulfillment of Sylvia Earle’s TED wish. I spoke about a new way of exploring the ocean, one that focuses on attracting animals instead of scaring them away.
Edith Widder
I’m a wrestler, so I’m used to not being paid, and I’m used to doing five or six competitions a day and paying someone else to allow me into the event.
Chael Sonnen
I hate when the major event of a show I watch is spoiled for me. And I’m wracked with guilt when/if I spoil something for someone else.
Bryan Cogman
I was struck after 9/11 by what seemed the assumption that everyone bereaved by that event was suffering the same thing. I wanted to explore how individual grief is, how complicated, how colored by the complexity of the mourner’s relationship with the person who’s died.
Sue Miller
One of the questions I face when working on a book about a historical event is whether I should visit the actual place that I’m writing about. No matter how scrupulously maintained a historic house or battlefield may be, it is nothing like it was in the long-ago past.
Nathaniel Philbrick
I think opera has gained a kind of glamorous appeal. It’s a live performance that aligns all of the arts, and when it is represented in the media, in film in particular, it is presented as something that is really a special event, whether it’s a great date or something that’s just hugely romantic.
Renee Fleming
We all have bad things that happen in our lives, and a lot of us wonder how we can go back to before the event, whatever it is. ‘Fallout 4’ is about realising that your life has a new normal. We want to put you in the shoes of someone who knows what life was like before this.
Todd Howard
Since 9/11, the Bush administration has used that tragic event as a justification to rip up our constitution and our civil liberties. And I honestly believe that one or two 9/11s, and martial law will be declared in our country and we’re inching towards a police state.
Michael Moore
This is the deal: You win the Royal Rumble match, you go to main event WrestleMania. That’s the process.
Roman Reigns
Stronger productivity growth would tend to raise the average level of interest rates and, therefore, would provide the Federal Reserve with greater scope to ease monetary policy in the event of a recession.
Janet Yellen
I’ve always enjoyed playing in Paris, ever since I was a junior and won the junior event there. Being Swiss, this is the Grand Slam that is closest to us – the one we watch first and visit first if we are lucky enough.
Stan Wawrinka
If you’re walking down the street and you smell a scent, it can take you right back to a memorable time in your life, whether it’s a moment with an ex-girlfriend or a childhood event.
Chris Evans
At this time, the only thing that would get me back in the ring is something that would positively impact those in need. If selling out another major event would allow me to bring a ship full of supplies to hand out to those in need, I’d say that would be very significant.
Bill Goldberg
I don’t ever work in a way where something is an illustration of an event, but when something is occurring at the same time I see it as very informed by that.
Julie Mehretu
Everything that happens today is like something in the past, but it’s also unlike things in the past. We never know until an event happens if it’s the similarities or differences that matter more.
H. W. Brands
For political and bureaucratic reasons, governments at all levels are telling far less to the public than to insiders about how to prepare for and behave in the initial chaos of a mass-casualty event.
Barton Gellman
Every time I got ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ or ‘Fantastic Four’ or another book firmly on the rails, we got pulled into some big event book or crossover and it cost momentum and messed badly with the pacing and structure of the book.
J. Michael Straczynski
Liturgy, in truth, is an event by means of which we let

Liturgy, in truth, is an event by means of which we let ourselves be introduced into the expansive faith and prayer of the Church. This is the reason why the early Christians prayed facing east, in the direction of the rising sun, the symbol of the returning Christ.
Pope Benedict XVI
Every person should have their escape route planned. I think everyone has an apocalypse fantasy, what would I do in the event of the end of the world, and we just basically – me and Nick – said what would we do, where would we head?
Simon Pegg
My topics are timely. When an event is happening is when I want to be there… I think it is our duty to challenge the status quo.
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
The Magnificent Seven was really kind of a miraculous event that took place in my life.
James Coburn
I myself have never been enchanted by the dream of the white wedding, and, heaven help us, the expectation that this exquisitely catered event should be ‘the happiest moment’ of one’s life.
Elizabeth Gilbert
The main event isn’t bitcoin. It’s using the blockchain to disrupt other industries and Wall Street.
Patrick M. Byrne
When I think of the Olympics I only think of good things. I think of what a great event it is and what it has done for me and my career, and changed my personal life, too.
Roger Federer
I don’t tackle major global events. I don’t like to read about something – an event, a cataclysm – in fiction for the sake of reading it.
Jhumpa Lahiri
Nat doing ‘Fault’ was the greatest thing for our band, and the only reason that our song got in it because Nat was screaming it in the movie. Now we can say that we have a song in ‘Fault in Our Stars,’ and we have a thousand fans who went to listen to our music because we performed at an event for ‘Fault in Our Stars.’
Alex Wolff
When I was young, I believe I met Nicolas Cage. I think I was probably eight, and I remember seeing him at somebody’s house – it was an event, and he happened to be there.
Simon Helberg
I always try and have a snack before an event – usually a small bowl of chickpea pasta, which is quick to make and delicious with just salt and pepper and a little bit of butter.
Nina Agdal
Solar storms cause power outages. They pose a hazard to satellites. They might interfere with your GPS or send your compass a couple of degrees off course. But I don’t think solar storms are a life-threatening event.
Jocelyn Bell Burnell
I’d always put on little shows at home, but when I was 11, I did a community event in Woodford, where anyone could go. You had three days of vocal training and performed your song at the end.
Naomi Scott
People often say that a bad event is a ‘blessing in disguise.’ Trust me, experience will teach you that some are unbelievably well disguised. Everyone gets fired, or decides to make a radical change at some point. Everyone suffers setbacks.
Tom Freston
I can wear a sexy dress to any red carpet event. My wedding is my chance to go all the way and wear a princess silhouette.
Roselyn Sanchez
Someone asked me the other day, ‘What is your most memorable moment in your career?’ and by far, China was. Being so close – the medal race was one part of the story, and there were a few incidents through the event that amounted to that massive drama at the end that cost us the medal.
Nathan Outteridge
A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music’s simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory. It’s different, because I grew up on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges and punk, so in that sense I’m mutating country and folk more than a few degrees.
Stone Gossard
In the United States in the 20th century, every major event that America was going through, there was a boxer who seemed to symbolically represent it, from slavery to the Vietnam War to the Depression – all the way along, you just seemed to have boxers that carried the narrative.
Brin-Jonathan Butler
It’s true that I don’t rearrange that much in the fiction, but I feel if you change even one name or the order of one event then you have to call it fiction or you get all the credits of non-fiction without paying the price.
Nicholson Baker
In applying this subject to the melancholy event, which has deprived this Diocese of its venerable Bishop, we presume not to compare him with the blessed Apostle, of whom we have been speaking.
John Strachan
I can’t think of a single one of my plays that does not represent a coincidence between an external and an internal event. Something outside of me, outside even my own life, something I read in a newspaper or witness on the street, something I see or hear, fascinates me. I see it for its dramatic potential.
Athol Fugard
To this day, most people think of me as the fastest human. They don’t really think me as a long jumper, although that’s the event I had more success in.
Carl Lewis
It takes tough love to order kids to step away from the iPhone or iPad during dinner or to take the devices away if they’re interrupting and interfering with everyone else’s pleasure at a movie, concert or other public event.
Regina Brett
I see an insidious problem in the marketing of weddings as ‘the happiest day of your life.’ The pressure that is placed upon this event to be the alpha and omega of your entire existence makes it, I think, into a kind of nuptial New Year’s Eve, and we all know how that usually turns out.
Jessi Klein
I believe that the Holocaust is the most significant event in human history.
James Comey
Persons whose wagers depend upon how particular selected athletes perform in actual sporting events stand in no different stead than persons who wager on the outcome of any sporting event in which they are not participants.
Lisa Madigan
Painful as it may be, a significant emotional event can be the catalyst for choosing a direction that serves us – and those around us – more effectively. Look for the learning.
Louisa May Alcott
Young girls – like friends of my daughter’s – always ask if we do prom dresses, and we do dresses that would be lovely, but £2,000 isn’t realistic for most girls. The Debenhams collection will hopefully be great for that sort of event because the price point is much lower.
Jenny Packham
I hate picking out outfits for events. That’s why I always wear the same thing when I go out – OK, not exactly the same, but always something easy. If it isn’t a big fashion event, it’ll be jeans and a nice top.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
The Olympics is the biggest competition for all athletes and an unforgettable event.
Kim Yuna
If I’ve got an event coming up, I might buy myself a new suit. I prefer wearing suits to dresses – I reckon I’ve got about 15.
Nicola Adams
My favorite thing about 'Saturday Night's Main Event,'

My favorite thing about ‘Saturday Night’s Main Event,’ it was that one time where I could stay up late with my dad and four brothers, and we would all beat the tar out of each other while the show was on, and it was all okay because my dad was a wrestling fan.
John Cena
To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
My expectations are not in any future event. I would rather just be prepared for whatever might take place.
Dan Webster
The ‘Sisters’ phenomenon was a byproduct of the ‘Trainwreck’ deal. I had to do the normal auditioning process for ‘Trainwreck’. I was extremely nervous for it, because you plan for this one event, and you get the opportunity.
John Cena
Nothing me and Kanye can do musically was gonna match the event of what we were trying to do. So we were trying to deliver an album and experience at one time; that was the idea for ‘Watch The Throne’.
Jay-Z
The real test of an anchor is when there’s a very big event. Sept. 11 is the quintessential example of that, and that day it took everything that I knew as an anchor, as a citizen, as a father, as a husband, to get through it.
Tom Brokaw
Any big televised event that starts at the crack of dawn is worth getting up for. I’ve done it all my life: big boxing matches, royal weddings, even TV-A.M.’s inaugural episode was enjoyed in pyjamas in my house.
Sharon Horgan
In other words, by finding the anomalous event, what you do is you get out ahead of activities.
Stephen Cambone
People are saying fashion week is no longer just a press event, it has become a shopping event because of us.
Aslaug Magnusdottir
For some people, an event happens and they are thrown into a tabloid feeding ground.
Clive Owen
Do send out a newsletter when you have a new book out or are going on tour. Also list relevant event dates and notifications of contests you are running.
M. J. Rose
When a crime is committed, only the victim and the victim’s close circle experience the event as pain, terror, death. To people hearing or reading about it, crime is a metaphor, a symbol of the ancient battles fought every day: evil versus good, chaos versus order.
S. J. Rozan
Just to see him come on the stage was an event. They had very high risers, and back a little bit, so he’d walk around behind the risers and right across the front of the stage to the podium, remember?
Robert Ripley
I revel in my anonymity. But when I’m at a specific event and gamers are there, they’ll recognise me.
Nolan North
I once did an event with Ian Rankin where he said he didn’t really need to do much background research because his books are set in the present, and I just thought: ‘You lucky, lucky beast!’ because as a historical novelist, I live constantly on the edge of wondering whether tissues had been invented.
Sara Sheridan
Once men are caught up in an event, they cease to be afraid. Only the unknown frightens men.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
You have to have an awareness of where you’re going, what the event is, what you’re promoting, and who the audience is. That always informs the way you dress.
Gillian Jacobs
I am thinking about chess in schools in particular. In the USA more than 3200 children competed in an event.
Anatoly Karpov
The Olympics is this big global event, but when neighbours come up and wish you well, it feels more personal.
Jonathan Brownlee
Job applications are an aesthetic event. They are performance art. They are not about proving you are smart – well, maybe your writing sample does that, but even then, the main point is to get an interview.
Timothy Morton
When we are exposed to a real or perceived threatening situation, powerful things happen in the brain to memorialize aspects of the event, including all manner of associated circumstances like where, when and how it occurred.
David Perlmutter
In the event of a victory over Germany by Soviet Russia and England, Bolshevism in Europe would inevitably follow. Under these circumstances I would prefer to see Germany win the war.
Pierre Laval
A movie that costs only $1.6 million doesn’t have to be a cultural event to turn a profit.
Steven Soderbergh
I do not send their Lordships the particulars of our losses and damages by this, as it would take me much time; and I am willing none should be lost in letting them know an event of such consequence.
John Byng
Evictions cause job loss. Because it’s such a destabilizing, stressful event, they lose their footing in the labor market. It has big impacts on people’s health, especially mental health.
Matthew Desmond
The destructive malware attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) in late 2014 was an unprecedented cyber event for the United States in its scope, destructiveness, and economic implications. The FBI responded to this attack with an investigation that was groundbreaking in its scope and collaboration.
James Comey
There’s a time when it was an event for a black person to be on television. Where black households would gather around, ‘Oh, you know, Sammy Davis is going to be on ‘All in the Family’ tonight! Let’s go check it out!’ It was a big, big thing.
Sterling K. Brown
My Olympic moment from the individual event was that I was really able to enjoy my skating, and so that meant a lot to me, and I didn’t portray that accurately.
Mirai Nagasu
The Severing is a catastrophe: an event that does not take place ‘at’ a certain ‘point’ in linear time, but a wave that ripples out in many dimensions, and in whose wake we are caught.
Timothy Morton
You know, we lose more homes every year to flooding than we do any other event in America.
Russel Honore
I haven’t seen it this busy since I’ve been an IndyCar driver. So I think that’s a great kind of thing that’s happening for the IndyCar Series, in general, right now. But it’s an event that I’m very proud to be part of. I love it. I can’t wait to come back next year.
Dan Wheldon
I live on a farm in Dorset. The nearest neighbour is a

I live on a farm in Dorset. The nearest neighbour is a quarter of a mile away. It’s really quiet, with an amazing view – can’t see a pylon, can’t see a road. Blockbuster’s an event in our house, when the little blue envelope comes in.
Martin Clunes
Whether I’m in the main event or on the preliminary card, the same Cowboy is going to be out there.
Donald Cerrone
Back in the really olden days, dinner was seldom a ceremonial event for U.S. families. Only the very wealthy had a separate dining room. For most, meals were informal, a kind of rolling refueling; often only the men sat down.
Nancy Gibbs
We need a right view of the cross. It is both a historical event that can take us to Heaven and a current event that can bring Heaven to bear on Earth.
Tony Evans
You have to understand that PTSD has to be an event that you experience, a very traumatic event. And actually, there is evidence that brain chemistry changes during this event in certain individuals where it’s imprinted indelibly forever and there’s an emotion associated with this which triggers the condition.
Dale Archer
Some stories seem to lend themselves to telling right away. ‘All The President’s Men’ was done, what, four or five years after the event? It certainly seemed to work there, as opposed to something that happened 40 years ago.
Barry Levinson
We thought we could reinvent the way people came together for live events. We wanted to ticket everything from a five-person yoga class to a 10-person cookery class to a fashion event.
Julia Hartz
‘WrestleMania’ is pressure-filled anyway, and more so when you’re going for the first time in what might be the main event. If you are being dubbed, or people seeing you as the next guy, those things mount up.
Shawn Michaels
Always you find that the more decisive event wins so my father’s sort of annual decisiveness which came upon him on the Day of Atonement every year, he suddenly remembered that he was Jewish.
Janet Suzman
Even now I will go to, like, an industry event, and all the ladies will be over here and all the guys over here, and I will go to the guys’ table and sit because I just feel I can have a much better conversation over there. And that’s automatic; it’s not prejudice.
Rihanna
My mom has this great skiing event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, every year for a local charity.
Joely Fisher
A revolution is not an event. It’s a process. And it takes its time.
Bassem Youssef
As recently as the September 11 event, the majority of Muslims were, as the rest of the world was, against its violence. However, if despair and humiliation continue in the population of more than one billion Muslims, the world will face increasing risks of conflicts and wars.
Ahmed Zewail
When you have a traumatic event in your life, you change. You’re not the same person you were, and you have to discover who you’ve become.
Isabel Gillies
Even the president’s own Science and Technology Office head Mister Holdren says no one single weather event is due specifically to climate change.
Marsha Blackburn
I can go completely berserk with the makeup, depending on the event. I’m currently in this very mod stage. I wear false lashes and color on my eyelids. I’m really liking shiny eyelids in copper, rose, gold, or silver.
Sharon Stone
Quite often in life, when a tragic event arrives it becomes a springboard for mirroring all other things in one’s life that one hasn’t come to terms with.
Charlotte Rampling
If I go to a concert or sporting event I usually go in a VIP entrance. And leave the same way.
Fran Drescher
The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?
J. B. Priestley
A political race today, even a primary, is $150 million. The whole political system has become obscene in terms of the absurd amount of money that is required to compete. Just put it on ESPN and call it a sporting event.
Mike Huckabee
At the FIFA World Player of the Year event, FIFA executives and FIFA president Sepp Blatter didn’t know who I was. And I was being honored as top three in the world. That was pretty shocking.
Alex Morgan
When you read the Bible, you are reading the Holy Spirit and not history books. When you read history books, you are reading about events, but the Bible is not an event. So, when you are reading the Holy Spirit, you are supposed to be carried along by it.
T. B. Joshua
Final pairing on Sunday in a PGA Tour event? If you can’t get up for that, you better find something else to do.
Graham DeLaet
Our culture is so obsessed with the idea that you’re going to go through a crisis or some difficult event and come out the other side a changed or improved person, and I just think that if you’re honest, that often does not happen, and in fact, it shouldn’t happen.
Meghan Daum
Davos is probably the world’s most elite society, but it dresses itself up as a non-elite event. Don’t be fooled. You must wear a specially coloured badge, which shrieks your status to others.
Richard Quest
A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that ‘individuality’ is the key to success.
Robert Orben
Should slavery be abolished there, (and it is an event, which, from these circumstances, we may reasonably expect to be produced in time) let it be remembered, that the Quakers will have had the merit of its abolition.
Thomas Clarkson
Taxes have been complicated. Every single time I spend a Bitcoin, it’s a taxable event. It’s like I bought and sold an asset. It counts as an investment, with a short- or long-term capital gain or loss.
Olaf Carlson-Wee
The first time I played a PGA Tour event at Tucson was 1975. I came off the course on Sunday feeling very good about myself. I’d finished at even par, and I knew I could play even better if I worked at it.
Gary McCord
I mean, certainly it’s the single biggest event, I think, in terms of popular entertainment, or art even, if you say that, of the 20th Century. It’s been film. It’s the 20th Century’s real art form.
Sydney Pollack
I had to give everything I had to one event if I wanted to excel.
Chris LeDoux
I've had a lot of success over the years racing in New

I’ve had a lot of success over the years racing in New York, but the main point is that I feel the marathon is a different event, a lot more my event.
Paula Radcliffe
The FIFA Confederations Cup is a major event, and a success in this tournament can make a team stronger.
Cafu
My relationship with Paris began when I was working for Cerruti in the mid-1960s. When there was an important event in his store, Nino Cerruti very kindly took me with him. I was fascinated, and the city made a big impression on me.
Giorgio Armani
Anyone who was alive during the outbreak of the bubonic plague in the 14th century experienced something terrifyingly close to the widespread death and chaos of an apocalyptic event.
Alan Huffman
Whenever I go to any particular event, people are shocked that I’m a fighter. To be a fighter, I have to look a certain way, and to be an actress, I have to look a certain way. I have to change that; I’ve joined acting to do meaningful cinema and to show that there is much more than glamour that actresses can offer.
Ritika Singh
But any big change is more likely to result if there is a disruptive event such as new technologies or platforms that have a surprising effect on market share.
Trip Hawkins
The first event I vividly remember was competing at the Junior Olympics in Seattle, Washington. It was my first major competition outside of Texas, and I remember being very nervous. I could not control my nerves, and I threw a few fouls.
Michelle Carter
Crashing could not be more inconsiderate to a host. It is a negative act because hosts likely have a particular plan for the event, an intention to move guests’ attitudes in a certain direction.
Letitia Baldrige
The mountain climbing, I just want to be able to have a real cardio-intense event, and the payoff is you get the top.
Jared Isaacman
You’ve got to have the right attire for the right event. I attend a lot of dinners, a lot of concerts, and I have to be on the red carpet; each has its own dress code, and I have to be prepared. Jeans and a hoodie are great for a concert, but a dinner party?
Amar’e Stoudemire
I work for Fox News as a commentator. I say whatever I want. I’m the blonde on the left, figuratively and literally – the one who’s usually smiling because it’s T.V., not the Supreme Court or Congress, and I find civility more effective in any event.
Susan Estrich
‘Bowling For Columbine’ and ‘Gus Van Sant’s Elephant’ really intrigued me. With ‘Bowling For Columbine’, I think Michael Moore just gave the perfect exploration of both the mass media interpretation of the event and going into the minds of these kids. These were messed-up kids who had hit a point of no return.
Josh Trank
I am a person who dreads any kind of public exposure and any kind of public event. I spend all day, if I have to do a reading, preparing.
Junot Diaz
Be it a private event or a college fest or the occasional wedding sangeet, my visits to Noida are frequent.
Neha Kakkar
There’s no way to reconstruct reality. It happened once. What you do is reinterpret and recreate. Even if you have the person who lived it and did it next to you, the event happened just once.
Edgar Ramirez
I look at this as a second life. Every game feels like an event. Every pitch matters. I need that. It elevates your aggressiveness.
Al Leiter
Memory depends mainly upon myth. Some even occurs in our minds, in actuality or in fantasy; we form it in memory, molding it like clay day after day – and soon we have made out of that event a myth. We then keep the myth in memory as a guide to future similar situations.
Rollo May
The primary goal of the so-called nonfiction text is to relay the facts of an event – the facts about a person, the facts of history – which is not why I turned to this genre.
John D’Agata
Millions of people gave their lives fighting fascism and imperialism, but Pearl Harbor was the event that forever changed the course of human history.
Sam Graves
When we are dealing with death we are constantly being dragged down by the event: Humor diverts our attention and lifts our sagging spirits.
Allen Klein
Very near Auch, Lectoure, and Mirande, great fire will fall from the sky for three nights. A most stupendous and astonishing event will occur. Very soon afterwards, the earth will tremble.
Nostradamus
It is almost always the cover-up rather than the event that causes trouble.
Howard Baker
There comes a point in nearly every book event I’ve done when a little feminist revolt stirs inside the crowd.
Hanna Rosin
Make your having dinner out become The Event of the Night, instead of just the beginning.
John Walters
Don’t try to run your life through a single straw. Someone, some event, will cut it off.
Michael Mullen
Our main thing we’d have to entertain us: All my uncles would come over, and we’d sit around the living room on a weekend night, and we’d play. That was a big event for me, getting to play. We never did have any percussion.
Dickey Betts
Even as global warming increases the frequency of El Nino and the Atlantic event, their effects are being amplified by the annual loss of an area of rain forest the size of New Jersey. Less rain falls, and the water runs into the rivers instead of being sucked up by the fungus filaments and tree roots.
Alex Shoumatoff
I don’t follow trends. I make each cake for a particular wedding, or event.
Ron Ben-Israel
In 1949, China declared independence – an event known in Western discourse as ‘the loss of China’ in the U.S. – with bitter recriminations and conflict over who was responsible for that loss.
Noam Chomsky
As a decathlete, you take pride in saying, ‘The elements, I’m not going to let them affect me. It’s just the 11th event. Another thing you have to fight through.’
Ashton Eaton
When I was at Stratford, the very first thing that I was commissioned to work on was trying to make a musical out of the documentary material about the General Strike, which was the next big historical event in England, after the First World War.
Trevor Nunn
It's a once-in-a-lifetime event for all of us, somethin

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime event for all of us, something like this.
Berenice Bejo
We shall be inclined to pronounce the voyage that led to the way to this New World as the most epoch-making event of all that have occurred since the birth of Christ.
John Fiske
The letters I get from people, a lot of people are very appreciative. I get stacks of letters. I’ll do an event, and all the kids will send me all kinds of letters, and that right there is enough motivation to keep doing it.
Chris Harris, Jr.
Death should not be a taxable event.
Matt Rosendale
I think there’s a time and place to watch an independent film, or catch up on a French action film on your laptop, or Netflix it, or download it, or watch it on-demand. But I think we also have to maintain the sacredness of the movie theatre as church – especially with event screenings.
Robert Englund
Music is a spiritual event and a means to realize freedom.
Ed Kowalczyk
A lot of people tune in to ‘Monday Night Raw,’ and they can hear these boos or these mixed reactions, but they’re not there for our Friday live event show, our Saturday show, our Sunday show. I get to experience a lot of very supportive nights where everybody is on my side.
Roman Reigns
People tell me an Olympic medal is a life-changing event. Except I don’t even think about the medal unless someone asks about it.
Mikaela Shiffrin
China’s rise is really a kind of a world historical event. This is the largest country in the world. It has caused a wholesale substantial contraction of U.S. manufacturing employment.
David Autor
Every unfortunate event does not give rise to lawsuit.
Judge Mills Lane
The great power the president has is that he is the most prominent person in the biggest media event on the planet. He has the attention of the nation and the world. When he speaks, everybody listens.
David Frum
Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history. Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks.
Stephen Hawking
Usually, before I salute the judge, I’m able to just grab the event, and I pray on it, and that really grounds me. For some reason, once I do that, I am able to think clearly, and I’m able to calm down right before I compete.
Laurie Hernandez
When you’re doing any event on an elite level, you’re in tune with your body.
Ashton Eaton
I came from the bottom. Now I’m the main event and UFC champion.
Rafael dos Anjos
The Chinese people have been forced to forget the Tiananmen massacre. There has been no public debate about the event, no official apology. The media aren’t allowed to mention it. Still today people are being persecuted and imprisoned for disseminating information about it.
Ma Jian
I have this ambition that when I become powerful and famous, I will host an event of boxing or kick-boxing, which the entire nation watches. That way, this sport will gain attention. People will realise that there is a lot of talent in India.
Ritika Singh
Sochi started with the same problem as every Winter Olympics. Forget the crass commercialism, the fake amateurism, NBC’s refusal to televise important events live to all its viewers. As an event, the Winter Games fail on the most basic level. They’re lousy to watch.
Alex Berenson
Sportswriting is fascinating – descriptions of the opponents and the details of an event in which someone is going to win and someone is going to lose. Life is much longer and more complicated, and the outcomes are less clear-cut.
Gilda Radner
It’s a learning process, and now I know that even when you don’t have a title, or you’re not in a main event caliber program, you have to remain ‘main event level’ and always not allow anything to hinder that.
The Miz
I am genuinely sorry that my attendance at an event which, other than my comments, appears to have primarily involved a discussion of cockfighting, has created concern on the part of many Kentucky voters.
Matt Bevin
Over the years Woodstock got glorified and romanticised and became the event that symbolised Utopia. It’s the last page of our collective memory of the age of innocence. Then things turned ugly and would never be the same again.
Ang Lee
I think competition can make people stronger at whatever it is they’re competing on. If we’re competing in some athletic event for competitive swimmers, really intensely competing, it’s likely that both of us will become better, but it’s also quite possible we’ll lose sight of what’s truly valuable.
Peter Thiel
All my life, I have been a positive thinker… I have always been able to survive by telling myself that no matter how bad things are, they will one day be better. And that out of every event – no matter how tragic – one can always find a way to survive and even, perhaps, to be a little bit happy.
Zsa Zsa Gabor
The actual tragedies of life bear no relation to one’s preconceived ideas. In the event, one is always bewildered by their simplicity, their grandeur of design, and by that element of the bizarre which seems inherent in them.
Jean Cocteau
Since high school, I’ve always been super into photography. I event went to Valley College for photography.
Christina Milian
In October, 1865, occurred what was, in my eyes, the greatest event in the history of the observatory. The new transit circle arrived from Berlin in its boxes.
Simon Newcomb
The awakening of the people of China to the possibilities under free government is the most significant, if not the most momentous, event of our generation.
Woodrow Wilson
A political event was that I met Fidel Castro, the Cuban revolutionary. He is a young, intelligent guy, very sure of himself and extraordinarily audacious; I think we hit it off well.
Che Guevara
The earliest golfing memories that I have are of the Italian Open when I was about six years of age. Watching that event is how I really got started in the game.
Matteo Manassero
The birth of the Savior into mortality is an event of immeasurable significance that occurred almost 2,000 years ago. In much of the world, calendar years are numbered forward and backward from the entire time of His birth.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
For me, growing up in Indiana with cornfields and churc

For me, growing up in Indiana with cornfields and churches, I was always very intrigued by the Academy Awards – they were a big event. That was the one night of the year when all of the glittering movie stars got together, and I used to love that night because, as a child, it was a way to dream for me.
Ryan Murphy
Dates that come around every year help us measure progress in our lives. One annual event, New Year’s Day, is a time of reflection and resolution.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
I’ve always been interested in setting my stories against a big event, the importance of which my younger readers are slowly becoming aware of as they move into their teens.
Morris Gleitzman
For nighttime or for an event, I’m all about the nice heel. Something that’s still walkable but definitely very elegant.
Carly Rae Jepsen
The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years.
George Matthew Adams
Pearl Harbor was the defining event in my life. It shaped who I am, and all of my hang-ups and my drives, I think, stem from that.
David Suzuki
I played Woodstock in ’69, and it really changed my life. Without a doubt, it was the single event that really changed the way I felt about music. Up to that point, I hadn’t really thought of myself as more serious musician, and I didn’t really have that much interest in pop music.
Edgar Winter
Sir Derek Jacobi has been an inspiration to so many actors and audiences throughout his brilliant career. To see him in Shakespeare is an event in itself.
Kenneth Branagh
Post traumatic stress disorder starts out with nightmares, flashbacks and actually reliving the event. And this happens over and over and over and over in your mind. If you let it go on, it can become chronic and become hard if not impossible to treat.
Dale Archer
The greatest thing that ever happened to me in my life was being allowed to do business in Macau and in China. I love it here. It has been the greatest single event in my commercial career. Period.
Steve Wynn
Soccer is a great game, and the rich variety of styles and passions that come with being truly global makes the World Cup a nonpareil event in the universe of competitive sport.
Serge Schmemann
‘FlashForward’ is definitely not a sci-fi show. It doesn’t have the mythology of ‘Lost.’ We have one major event that happens that you are asked to buy into. After that, you’re dealing with very human ripple effects – how people deal with it and how they come to terms with it.
Sonya Walger
I think we could very easily suffer a seriously catastrophic cyber event.
John F. Kelly
I went to a British Council event a while back and there were lots of German professors of literature. About half of them were convinced I had a German sense of humour and the other half were sure it was British. They are probably still arguing about it now.
Tibor Fischer
My best event is Super-G. I’m competitive in all my events, but Super-G has been most consistent for me.
Julia Mancuso
You have to remember that coaching wasn’t sophisticated back then – you didn’t have the camps, clinics and all the technical advances that are available today – so from that standpoint, playing with a cast on my arm was a fortunate event in my life.
Bob Cousy
Daddy was hilarious. He could take the most mundane event and tell it so that we all on the floor laughing. He trained me in the joys of humor.
Karen DeCrow
One great thing about going to a fashion event in the morning, especially in February in New York, is that the other attendees are dressed less like models themselves. A winter coat, it turns out, is a great equalizer.
Josh Gondelman
At an event in Germany, I realised the organisers had ‘The Great Escape’ playing as background music to my test, and I just thought, ‘It’s really cool. I want that.’ It is fantastic to ride to.
Charlotte Dujardin
The British invasion was the most important event of my life. I was in New Jersey and the night I saw the Beatles changed everything. I had seen Elvis before and he had done nothing for me, but these guys were in a band.
Steven Van Zandt
In 1975, the collapse of a cascade of Chinese dams during a flood killed a hundred and seventy-one thousand people, but the event is rarely discussed, and the names of the victims are largely unrecorded today.
Evan Osnos
I am the champion of champions. I’m the main event. I’m untouchable. I, Tommaso Ciampa, am the greatest sports-entertainer of all time.
Tommaso Ciampa
Any time you make more than a couple of friends at an event, I think that you actually made no friends.
Naveen Jain
The loss of my father was the most traumatic event in my life – I can’t forget the pain.
Frank Lowy
Every event that a man would master must be mounted on the run, and no man ever caught the reins of a thought except as it galloped past him.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.
Oprah Winfrey
Family time was very difficult when my girls were little, but I never missed a birthday; I was there for every major event.
Jeff Dunham
Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.
Bob Newhart
I have been working for over 30 years and am always wondering about where I am and where I am going. It does not stop and become a fixed event of achievement.
Maira Kalman
It feels good when your hometown supports you, and Macon’s always done that with us. Every time we come here, it’s an event – which is nice.
Jason Aldean
If you are still being hurt by an event that happened to you at twelve, it is the thought that is hurting you now.
James Hillman
To be honest with you, I literally don't even know how

To be honest with you, I literally don’t even know how to style my hair unless I’m doing an event because I rely on hair stylists.
Nina Dobrev
There’s always going to be a ball up in the air, and what I try to do is make sure that ball is never the kids. If that means sacrificing a social event or having fewer work commitments, it’s worth it.
Elisabeth Hasselbeck
Making an effort is polite, and getting ready and looking after yourself makes an event more fun.
Jude Law
Most of the books that I’ve written have been focused on, sort of, the individual, and sort of, either a voice, a personal voice, or a kind of transforming event where they step forward to fight for something they value.
Caroline Kennedy
The ancients often believed a celestial event like an eclipse to be a bad omen, that the sun or the moon vanishing from the sky was a harbinger of disaster, a sign of devastation or destruction to come.
Jenna Wortham
I think we would all like to believe that every new event demands a new word. But we’re environmentally conscious with our words. We recycle words we’ve got.
Erin McKean
The life of a play begins and ends in the moment of performance. This is where author, actors, and directors express all they have to say. If the event has a future, this can only lie in the memories of those who were present and who retained a trace in their hearts.
Peter Brook
I’m not a big fan of the Olympic Games. The ATP calendar is a bit complex due to the Olympic event.
Dominic Thiem
My generation remembered going to the movies as an event. We would see these things, we would bring them home, and we would think about them for years because it would take a long time before they would go on television where you could re-experience the fun that you had when you watched them.
Joe Dante
Probably the greatest match in my career, and really put me on the match as a main event guy and paved the way for what I was to become, was Wrestlemania 13, with the one and only, Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
I can’t say I have a lucky charm, but I do wear a 3/4-zip U.S.A. jacket I wear to every event. I got it from Nike, and it was from the 2012 Olympic Games.
Max Aaron
Unless I’m on a stage, I don’t want to be the event in someone’s day.
Frances McDormand
I’ve never been interested in the event when I’m the center of attention.
Helmut Lang
I remember watching the 2002 Olympic Games and watching the men’s event. I just started figure skating, and I remember thinking how cool it would be to be there.
Max Aaron
I adapted an antiquated style and modernized it to something that was efficient. I didn’t know anyone else in the world would be able to use it and I never imagined it would revolutionize the event.
Dick Fosbury
The publishing of a book is a worldwide event. The attempt to suppress a book is a worldwide event.
Salman Rushdie
We’ve always kind of tried to keep the mystique. We don’t wanna give everybody everything. You give ’em too much, it’s just white noise. When we do say something, we want it to be an event. When we go out and do things, we want it to be an event and kind of keep everything else behind closed doors.
Johnny Christ
I am unable to watch the Olympics due to the blustering jingoism that drenches the event. Has England ever been quite so foul with patriotism? The ‘dazzling royals’ have, quite naturally, hi-jacked the Olympics for their own empirical needs, and no oppositional voice is allowed in the free press.
Morrissey
The Athletic Association competed against the University. So there was an event. You cannot break world records unless it is an established event, and you have three timekeepers, and the whole thing is organized.
Roger Bannister
The size of the effect that we measured from the first event, the merging of two black holes, the actual size of the signal was about one thousandth the size of a proton, what it did to our apparatus.
Barry Barish
When George Hirsch ran the New York City Marathon in 1976, the first year the course snaked through all five boroughs, the event was a lean affair. He and two thousand others dodged wayward bicycles and pedestrians on the streets, with little help from an anemic police presence.
Mary Pilon
I never got away from the war. Not because I was obsessed with it in those years, but because it was the event of my generation and I started out covering it so I stayed with it.
Neil Sheehan
‘Into The Gloss,’ what I think it did so well was create a conversation around beauty and make beauty the main event as opposed to the ugly step-sister, which it often is in magazines.
Emily Weiss
You could summarize everything I did at Apple was making tools to empower creative people. ‘QuickDraw’ empowered all these other programmers to now be able to sling stuff on the screen. The ‘Window Manager,’ ‘Event Manager,’ and ‘Menu Manager.’ Those are things that I worked on that were empowering other people.
Bill Atkinson
The country has sorted itself ideologically into the two political parties, and those partisan attachments have hardened in recent years. It will take an extraordinary event and act of leadership to break this partisan divide. I thought 9/11 might provide such an opportunity, but it was not seized.
Thomas E. Mann
I love theaters. I love the event of going there and seeing a movie with a lot of people. I like the community coming around the story.
Willem Dafoe
The words we spoke and our entire punk performance aimed to express our disapproval of a specific political event: the patriarchs’ support of Vladimir Putin, who has taken an authoritarian and anti-feminist course.
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova
I’m very proud of ‘Will the Sun Ever Shine Again.’ That was a song written very close to the 9/11 event.
Alan Menken
Once in awhile, there’s stuff that makes me say, That’s what theatre’s about. It has to be a human event on the stage, and that doesn’t happen very often.
Uta Hagen
Do we not all spend the greater part of our lives under the shadow of an event that has not yet come to pass?
Maurice Maeterlinck
Believe me, the next step is a currency crisis because there will be a rejection of the dollar, the rejection of the dollar is a big, big event, and then your personal liberties are going to be severely threatened.
Ron Paul
In any event, the problem in Iran is much bigger than w

In any event, the problem in Iran is much bigger than weapons. The problem is the terrorist regime that seeks the weapons. The regime must go.
Richard Perle
I’m looking at a dead event and trying to give it new life. In a sense, I’m a taxidermist.
Yann Martel
Monaco is a very special event in its own right, and the atmosphere is quite crazy! As a driver, you have to stay calm and relaxed and try to do your job.
Romain Grosjean
Seeing the road show of ‘A Chorus Line’ in 1977 at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Memphis was a life-changing event for me: there were gay people, on the stage, and they all lived in New York.
Ira Sachs
Dying should not be a taxable event.
Mike Fitzpatrick
I think all art comes out of conflict. When I write I am always looking for the dramatic kernel of an event, the junctures of people’s lives when they go in one direction, not another.
Joyce Carol Oates
I don’t know, I always had an active dream life, and there’s something so profound and wonderful about a movie. It’s so alive. It’s so shared. The thing of sitting in an audience and going into a dream-like state with several hundred other people that are sharing exactly what you’re feeling is a profound event.
Wes Craven
In everyday life, I’m pretty much T-shirt and jeans guy – a soft LnA shirt, cool APC jeans, Nikes or Jordans. If I’m going to an event I like to wear a suit, sometimes a three-piece. I’m into brands like Simon Spurr – I think he makes great suits – and Dior Homme.
Bryan Greenberg
I just need to concentrate on each event and accumulate a good score, and hopefully I won’t flop in the 800 m. in Gotzis.
Katarina Johnson-Thompson
The World Cup experience is more than just the game of soccer. It’s an event. And it will fly by faster than you think. It will end and you’ll be saying, ‘Wow, it’s over already?’ You have to remember to take it all in and enjoy it.
Cobi Jones
He can develop sense and style, in the manner of distinguished modern prose, in which event he may be sure that the result will not fall into any objective form.
John Crowe Ransom
The collapse of Russia was the second great event of 1917.
Kelly Miller
Perhaps the main stumbling block to a better, and more fruitful, theological relationship with Judaism and the Jewish people has been the tendency of many Christian theologians to see the Christ event as the end of history.
David Novak
No party or event is without a reason. This is how we foster new relationships, open doors, and launch new ideas that create business opportunities, investments, and jobs in the U.S. and Spain.
James Costos
I’m good at separating things. When I’m in my classroom, I’m totally there. When I’m at an event, I’m totally there. And when I’m with my grandkids, my total attention is on them.
Jill Biden
No political event can be judged outside of the era and the circumstances in which it took place.
Fidel Castro
Almost all of your life is lived by the seat of your pants, one unexpected event crashing into another, with no pattern or reason, and then you finally reach a point, around my age, where you spend more time than ever looking back. Why did this happen? Look where that led? You see the shape of things.
Ron Perlman
A lot of biopics to me feel very much like someone is standing in front of the camera and is reading a Wikipedia page to you, like someone is reciting event. Did you know this happened? Did you know that happened? But Alan Turing’s life deserved a sort of passionate film, and an exciting film.
Graham Moore
It is amazing to have the UFC to come here to Perth… it is great for Australian Mixed Martial Arts and great for the sport, and it is going to be great for Perth to have such a world-wide event, through pay-per-view, hosted here.
Robert Whittaker
