Generally, you want to raise capital either when you have to or when it’s really easy. If the company desperately needs money, and they can’t figure out any other way, then they need to raise money. Or if someone’s offering you easy money on good terms, you should take it because you can use it for good things.

Eve Arnold
Well they’re very, very genuine concerns at present as to the status of the 800 people who are to be sent by Australia to Malaysia. There’s concern about the status of asylum seekers in Malaysia generally, but there’s concern about the status of the 800 to be sent.
Julie Bishop
I lived in a world where social arrangements were taken for granted and assumed to be timeless. A child’s obligation was to learn these usages, not to question them. The complexities of racial deportment were of a piece with learning manners and etiquette more generally.
Drew Gilpin Faust
Generally, the view that I’ve had on Twitter is if you’re on Twitter, you’re in, like, the meme – you’re in meme war land. If you’re on Twitter, you’re in the arena. And so, essentially, if you attack me, it is therefore OK for me to attack back.

The arts generally have had to recognize Modernism – how should poetry escape?

Peter Straub
I can’t stay friends with anyone who doesn’t have a passion for something; and, generally speaking, artistic people, creative people carry it right into the kitchen, too. They have a zest for life; the excitement of living. All of the great eaters I’ve known are also men of great wit.

My point is there's a hidden Scotland in anyone who spe

My point is there’s a hidden Scotland in anyone who speaks the Northern Ireland speech. It’s a terrific complicating factor, not just in Northern Ireland, but Ireland generally.

Kenneth Lonergan
Generally speaking, if people are prepared to stick their heads above the power pit, like Zinn says, and absorb what’s going on around them, it makes them think.

George Will
I think there’s a lot of mythos about what’s required in acting. The way that actors talk about acting is generally quite punishing, and I think actors want to put forward the idea that they do all of this work because, you know, it’s a post-De Niro world, when, largely, in fact, it’s almost never true.
Ben Mendelsohn
In history, one gathers clues like a detective, tries to present an honest account of what most likely happened, and writes a narrative according to what we know and, where we aren’t absolutely sure, what might be most likely to have happened, within the generally accepted rules of evidence and sources.

James Madison

Virginia Postrel
Every Republican president starting with Lincoln – and for almost 100 years thereafter – generally supported tariffs, while Democrats tended to promote free trade.
Robert Lighthizer

Joe Sacco

Ani DiFranco
Typically, an historic site is considered by the National Park Service to contain a single historical feature, while generally a National Historic Park extends beyond single properties or buildings.

Wise kings generally have wise counselors; and he must

Wise kings generally have wise counselors; and he must be a wise man himself who is capable of distinguishing one.
Diogenes
I generally write a first draft that’s pretty lean. Just get the story down.
Nora Roberts
The frustrating part of it is that you’re generally known for what you did last. I’ve had the privilege of doing some very cool independent films that, a lot of the time, the general public doesn’t see unless you’re at a film festival or you’re into that kind of movie.
Hayden Panettiere
Power is, in its nature, encroaching; and such is the human make that men who are vested with a share of it are generally inclined to take more than it was intended they should have.

Generally speaking, rural drivers are a much better behaved species than city drivers. I’m not sure whether they’re intrinsically this way, or there are just fewer opportunities for them to do behave badly. You can’t go around running red lights if there aren’t any red lights to run.
Linwood Barclay
I am neither a method actor nor a trained one. So, I don’t generally prepare for any role. Becoming the character and being in that moment are most important.

Peter Blair Henry
What is generally referred to as American-style films are, in fact, studio productions.
Wim Wenders
The appeal of the spectrally macabre is generally narrow because it demands from the reader a certain degree of imagination and a capacity for detachment from everyday life.

Sam Harris
Sometimes people try to read into my strip and find out what my state of mind is. And I can say if I’m in a good mood, generally the comic strip starts out in a good mood, but the punchline is very negative and sour.
Matt Groening
Those who believe that they are exclusively in the right are generally those who achieve something.

Those disputing, contradicting, and confuting people are generally unfortunate in their affairs. They get victory, sometimes, but they never get good will, which would be of more use to them.

The way I write is generally about love. I have a great

Carly Rae Jepsen
Is Tony Blair of the Labour party? The answer to that is profoundly ‘yes’, but that is not how, sentimentally, he is regarded in the Labour movement generally.

Geraldine Brooks
I generally mark my ball with a quarter, but sometimes I’ll use a Canadian one-dollar coin. I have a bunch from when I played on the Canadian Tour. I’m not superstitious.

Arrogance generally is a bad thing, but with a band, somehow you have to have this gang mentality or this certain degree of arrogance to push forward an idea that’s new enough that people aren’t comfortable with it at first.
Mike D
When I started out as a music journalist, at the end of the 1980s, it was generally assumed that we were living through the lamest music era the world would ever see. But those were also the years when hip-hop exploded, beatbox disco soared, indie rock took off, and new wave invented a language of teen angst.
Rob Sheffield
My mom’s a psychologist, and I think that has influenced me on a personal level. Plus, I’m just generally interested in visualization and humanity, social activity and technology, and what happens in aggregate.
Aaron Koblin
Actresses generally aren’t allowed to have haircuts, because short hair isn’t considered as versatile.

There is a difference between happiness and wisdom: he that thinks himself the happiest man is really so; but he that thinks himself the wisest is generally the greatest fool.

A person’s health isn’t generally a reflection of genes, but how their environment is influencing them. Genes are the direct cause of less than 1pc of diseases: 99pc is how we respond to the world.
Bruce Lipton
Generally, we admire the thing we are not.
Stephen Fry
Telling the truth to people who misunderstand you is generally promoting a falsehood, isn’t it?
Anthony Hope
The world generally speaking is now drifting on a more and more devastating course towards the absurd target of extermination – or rather, to be more exact – of the northern hemisphere’s towns, fields, and the people who have developed our civilization.
Alva Myrdal
I hate to sound like a romantic adolescent, but I believe artists don’t generally see art as a career choice; they simply can’t overcome their desire to make art, and will live on little income for as long as they have to, before they start to sell their work – or give up and get a paying job.
Charles Saatchi
I would walk down the street and people would scream from their cars at me and, generally, I’d turn around and it’s a 13-year-old girl. And it’s funny because that is the audience that I think big studios are always trying to target.
Eugene Lee Yang
Basically, what I do is place a stop, generally 10 to 20 percent below the current price, whenever I buy a stock. The exact level depends on my own analysis of a stock’s trading pattern. If a stock violates this stop, I’m out.
Martin Zweig
Generally, I travel with my own cast to stage plays in different countries.
Y. G. Mahendran
I’m the worst Bond, according to the internet. Generally hated!
Roger Moore
Junipers are generally chosen for the latter purpose, as they can be more readily bent into the desired form; the eyes and tongue are added afterwards, and the representation altogether is really good.
Robert Fortune
I’ve generally got a good eye for design and proportion.
Bruce Oldfield
The Times has much less power than you think. I believe we attribute power to the media generally that it simply doesn’t have. It’s very convenient to blame the media, the same way we blame television for everything that’s going wrong in society.
Michael Pollan
My character is somebody who is smaller in stature and yet who’s strong, so to see the fighting situations between people who are not generally thought of being strong is in itself unusual and therefore interesting, I think.
Chiaki Kuriyama
Hope is generally a wrong guide, though it is good company along the way.
George Savile
Pianists don’t argue too much generally because we have such a hard time just getting things right; arguing is for string players.
Emanuel Ax
Making a mix CD – albeit slightly old school – is generally a pretty cool gift and something I like to receive, or giving someone a book that moved you. Writing an inscription inside makes it even better.
Ryan Reynolds
I think probably like seeing women fight because we’re generally not thought to be strong, especially in the case of this movie.
Chiaki Kuriyama

Kevin Kelly
Generally, achieving goals… which in many cases means winning… is really the ultimate in this life we live in.

David Bohm
The reason why so little is done, is generally because

The reason why so little is done, is generally because so little is attempted.
Samuel Smiles
I mean… if you’re raised as a decent human being, killing somebody is against every moral thing you’ve ever been taught. And so, generally, in combat it’s ‘krauts,’ the ‘gooks,’ the ‘yanks’ – whatever you want to do to try and make it so that it’s not a human being.
Karl Marlantes
Not only I lost what I had in the ship, but from the captain and the company generally what was good or worth the taking was carried away; all which was done unknown to the emperor.
William Adams
If you work hard in real life, people tend to get in your way – either from inertia or prejudice – and they stop you achieving things.

Daley Thompson
Obama had reached out to the business community, they just haven’t liked all of his decisions and some of his rhetoric. But generally, I think the administration is quite open and accessible.
David Rubenstein
There is no word more generally misinterpreted than the word egoism, in its modern sense.
John Buchanan Robinson
I hate dream sequences in movies and T.V. shows generally for their heavy-handed symbolism and storytelling tediousness.
Ira Glass
A lot of the Warp stuff has infected people’s minds ’cause they’re at the point where they can put tracks out, ’cause electronics are cheaper in America and kids are richer generally.
Sean Booth
I’m generally pessimistic about the dumbing down of America – especially with summer movies.

Robert Green Ingersoll
The problem with winter sports is that – follow me closely here – they generally take place in winter.
Dave Barry
We may forget, or be unaware of, how prevalent it is to be sexually traumatized by events that are generally not thought of as traumatizing.
Peter A. Levine
The state’s interest in marriage is stability. Generally speaking, polygamy does not work for stability. Inherent in the whole polygamous movement is a deep and abiding misogyny and denigration of women. So polygamy is objectionable on lots of grounds.
Gene Robinson
People will generally accept facts as truth only if the facts agree with what they already believe.
Andy Rooney
A man that is ashamed of passions that are natural and reasonable is generally proud of those that are shameful and silly.
Mary Wortley Montagu
Comparing Oceanic art generally with Negro art, it has a livelier, thin flicker, but much of it is more two-dimensional and concerned with pattern making. Yet the carvings of New Ireland have, besides their vicious kind of vitality, a unique spatial sense, a bird-in-a-cage form.
Henry Moore
The famous saying ‘God is love’, it is generally assumed, means that God is like our immediate emotional indulgence, not that the meaning of love ought to have something of the ‘otherness’ and terror of God.
Charles Williams
Generally, I find a lot to be grateful for.

William Penn
True, Heaven prohibits certain pleasures; but one can generally negotiate a compromise.
Moliere
‘Authoring tools’ are terrible; there is almost no software that can create closed captions for media players. And of course there is no training. TV captioning is bad enough, and this stuff is generally worse.
Joe Clark
The time I trust will come, perhaps within the lives of some of us, when the outline of this science will be clearly made out and generally recognised, when its nomenclature will be fixed, and its principles form a part of elementary instruction.
Nassau William Senior
Generally, you are held to a sound and that becomes your sound. That gets branded as your sound, and all the copycats start with it because the labels are looking for that sound.
Randy Bachman
I don’t plan to write another science book, but I don’t plan not to. I do enjoy writing histories, and taking subjects that are generally dull and trying to make them interesting.
Bill Bryson
I generally think that I should only speak by action and not by words.
Mukesh Ambani
Next to enjoying ourselves, the next greatest pleasure consists in preventing others from enjoying themselves, or, more generally, in the acquisition of power.
Bertrand Russell
All improv turns into anger. All comedy improv basically turns into anger, because that’s all people know how to do when they’re improvising. If you notice shows that are improvising are generally people yelling at each other.
Albert Brooks
I'm big on being positive. I'm generally so positive an

I’m big on being positive. I’m generally so positive and happy. I just always felt that I was exactly where I wanted to be. And things have continued to go in great directions.

Bill Nighy
The exact contrary of what is generally believed is often the truth.
Jean de la Bruyere
The garden is a living, pulsing, singing, scratching, warring, erotic, and generally rowdy thing. I may find peace in its midst, but I regard it as a whole with many parts, a plural organism.
Diane Ackerman
On the contrary, history generally confirms that the more conscious and the better you are organized in vanguard organizations, the more constructively you operate in the mass organizations of the working class.
Ernest Mandel
This is why universities, and civil society more generally, are so important for a democracy like ours, founded on a genuine idealism that we have a hard time holding on to. They provide a space to question whatever we are doing in the name of things we say we believe in or might believe in.
Abhijit Banerjee
I get offered movies probably twice a month and they are just generally bad.
John Corbett
Eccentricity has always abounded when and where strength of character had abounded; and the amount of eccentricity in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius, mental vigor, and courage which it contained.
John Stuart Mill
Most of us wake up every day and make decision that will make us happy, and generally decisions that will make us happy right then in the moment or that day. We are not really on a truth quest.
Andy Stanley
Obviously there is stuff that I wouldn’t play in a club that I play at festivals, and vice-versa, but my sets are still dominated largely by my own music. I think that’s what makes me stand out a bit. My music is also festival- and club-friendly, so it generally works out well.
Avicii
I’m a great believer in karma, and the vengeance that it serves up to those who are deliberately mean is generally enough for me.
Beth Ditto
I just get annoyed at myself. A lot of swearing goes on generally when I am driving.
Lando Norris
Hope is generally a wrong guide, though it is very good company by the way.
Edward Wood, 1st Earl of Halifax
Since Ronald Reagan’s election in 1980, conservatives of various sorts, and conservatisms of various stripes, have generally been in the ascendancy. And a good thing, too! Conservatives have been right more often than not – and more often than liberals – about most of the important issues of the day.
Bill Kristol
What I generally get from being in Africa is a sense of warmth and openness. As a stranger, you are always welcomed into people’s homes and people are always offering you food. That generosity is incredibly touching.
Naomie Harris
And in an era where radio stations that are inclined to play Styx music are your classic rock stations and the stations that play current music look at us as dinosaurs – the only way we could reach people with our new music, generally, is to perform live.
James Young
But it is impossible to divide a cube into two cubes, or a fourth power into fourth powers, or generally any power beyond the square into like powers; of this I have found a remarkable demonstration. This margin is too narrow to contain it.
Pierre de Fermat
The benefits of education and of useful knowledge, generally diffused through a community, are essential to the preservation of a free government.
Sam Houston
In the theatrical works we love and admire the most, the ending of the drama generally takes place offstage.
Gustav Mahler
I did that all the more, if I may say so, because I was aware of the fact that there is an inclination to go to extremes in German people, and in the German character generally.
Fritz Sauckel
A kitten is chiefly remarkable for rushing about like mad at nothing whatever, and generally stopping before it gets there.
Agnes Repplier
Generally, I tend to despise human behavior rather than human creatures.
Sidney Poitier
Generally I can sleep any time, anywhere, any place, unless I’m anxious about work. I can get performance anxiety, so when I’m on tour it can be hard to sleep.
Natalie Imbruglia
I find great beauty in songs with a creative interpretation, but most people generally don’t get that, and go for the simple songs, but I prefer something a bit more complicated, which is more meaningful to the creator.
Irwin Thomas
I would like to spare the time and effort of hack reviewers and, generally, persons who move their lips when reading.
Vladimir Nabokov
I think English film is very embarrassed by patriotism, generally.
Tom Hooper
Mind you, I’ve always been a very off-message type of fat broad; one who gladly admits she reached the size she is now solely through lack of discipline and love of pleasure, and who rather despises people (except those with proven medical conditions) who pretend that it is generally otherwise.
Julie Burchill
A husband’s mother and his wife had generally better be visitors than inmates.
Samuel Richardson
I would sit on the street corners in my hometown of Ind

I would sit on the street corners in my hometown of Indianola, Mississippi, and I would play. And, generally, I would start playing gospel songs.
B. B. King
I only really watch sport. That’s where you see real joy. I don’t like watching much else on TV, because it’s generally either twisted or sad.
Roger Milla
I believe that what we call beautiful is generally a by-product.
Dorothea Lange
Generally speaking, life is so rich and full of variety; you have to remember all the time that there is a comical side to everything.
Wislawa Szymborska
I hadn’t thought that I was generally a pack rat, but it turns out I am.
Joan Didion
The greatest achievements of the human mind are generally received with distrust.
Arthur Schopenhauer
There is no concept more generally cherished by publishers than that of the Undeserving Poor.
A. J. Liebling
Activists are generally doers – rather than watching television and thinking about the world they will put there energies into doing something ‘active’ to change the (political) situation.
Ben Edwards
I have a theory that women are generally given space and appointed to jobs when the situation is tough. I’ve observed that in many instances. In times of crisis, women eventually are called upon to sort out the mess, face the difficult issues and be completely focused on restoring the situation.
Christine Lagarde
For the most part, it is really nice when people come up to me, because I do think that people who are awkward relate to me, and that’s really nice. It’s generally good.
Rashida Jones
We’ve all heard the phrase ‘equal pay for equal work.’ Many of those who habitually repeat this mantra may not realize that it is simply a variation of the discredited labor theory of value (LTV), which is generally associated with Marxian economics.
Kane
No one should expect the value of their house to appreciate quickly – counting on your home to be a significant part of your retirement saving isn’t a winning strategy – but it is reasonable to expect that prices generally will rise with at least the rate of inflation for some time to come.
Mark Zandi
When I look back over my novels what I find is that when I think I’m finished with a theme, I’m generally not. And usually themes will recur from novel to novel in odd, new guises.
Richard Russo
The healthy man does not torture others – generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.
Carl Jung
When I go to movies I generally want to be taken to another world.
Darren Aronofsky
And generally the shows I’m in fail really big.
Megan Gallagher
If every gay person were to come out only to his/her own family, friends, neighbors and fellow workers, within days the entire state would discover that we are not the stereotypes generally assumed.
Harvey Milk
There is this difference between happiness and wisdom: he that thinks himself the happiest man, really is so; but he that thinks himself the wisest, is generally the greatest fool.
Charles Caleb Colton
Generally my feeling is that I think women are just in a universal way coming out, coming to their own more. And they have more opportunity, and basically we’re equal.
Chantal Kreviazuk
Laws are generally found to be nets of such a texture, as the little creep through, the great break through, and the middle-sized are alone entangled in it.
William Shenstone
Generally speaking, rhyme is the marker for the end of a line. The first rhyme-word is like a challenge thrown down, which the poem itself has to respond to.
James Fenton
I generally find an affinity with a lot of the people I play and I suppose if I didn’t feel an affinity for them then they wouldn’t be particularly good performances.
Hugo Weaving
What separates sports from entrepreneurism, however, is that in business we constantly have to overcome undefined and unpredictable challenges. Athletes train for specific events and conditions, whereas entrepreneurs generally have little idea what they will encounter along the way.
Naveen Jain
Sometimes we know the best thing to do, but fail to do it. New year’s resolutions are often like that. We make resolutions because we know it would be better for us to lose weight, or get fit, or spend more time with our children. The problem is that a resolution is generally easier to break than it is to keep.
Peter Singer
If you look at my life, generally, I’ve been put in situations which were difficult and which I conquered.
Madeleine Albright
It’s always felt natural, because I’m generally very comfortable with people.
Bruce Springsteen
People that lie to me generally get banished or vanished to the planet Pluto in my mind.
Jim Cornette
I think the world would be much poorer without religion, speaking generally.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Stunted varieties were generally chosen, particularly if they had the side branches opposite or regular, for much depends upon this; a one-sided tree is of no value in the eyes of the Chinese.
Robert Fortune
Impatience translates itself into a desire to have something immediate done about it all, and, as is generally the case with impatience, resolves itself in the easiest way that lies ready to hand.
Edward Sapir
In my experience, those who make the biggest fuss about not spending much at Christmas are generally the ones who buy what they want and eat where they want 12 months a year.
Julian Baggini
But it's not just the cattle producers, it's all the at

But it’s not just the cattle producers, it’s all the attendant industries like transport and shipping and feed producers and the like. There will be enormous ramifications across the beef industry generally as a result of the Government’s decision to ban all exports to all of the abattoirs in Indonesia.
Julie Bishop
Speaking generally, people who are drawn to journalism are interested in what happens from the ground up less than they are from the top down.
Tom Brokaw
I follow the director’s lead because they generally know more about the big picture, but I also trust that the director will give me enough freedom to play.
Yuri Lowenthal
As an actor, you generally don’t get to choose what projects you are part of, so I’ve been very fortunate that ‘The Book of Mormon’ was something I got to be part of. I don’t want to be lofty, but it was groundbreaking, in many ways, for musical theater, so that was really thrilling to be part of.
Andrew Rannells
It has been generally the custom of writers on natural history to take the habits and instincts of animals as the fixed point, and to consider their structure and organization as specially adapted to be in accordance with them.
Alfred Russel Wallace
Parshuram’s is a very detailed character. People generally know him as an angry man who goes around cursing. What they are not aware of is the undercurrent of pain behind every curse of his. I bring out this pain in the character.
Puneet Issar
I once saw a lump of Greenland breaking off into the sea and moving south, which of course will affect the atmosphere and us generally, and it’ll happen more and more.
Ralph Steadman
When I’m not at the keyboard, I’m generally reading, practicing tai chi or middle eastern dance, or cooking.
Sarah Zettel
Well, yes, I’ve fired a lot of people. Generally I like other people to fire, because it’s always a lousy task. But I have fired many people.
Donald Trump
When I’m considering an idea, and there is an element of hubris involved, I generally feel comfortable that it’s going to be a good story. Pride goeth before a fall. It’s an element of a lot of big stories.
Erik Larson
Generally speaking, the Way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death.
Miyamoto Musashi
A man has generally the good or ill qualities, which he attributes to mankind.
William Shenstone
I’m generally a very pragmatic person: that which works, works.
Linus Torvalds
I’m fun with people I know. But at the same time, people also say that I am a little cold, rude, and moody. ‘Moody’ is the word they generally use for me.
Shaheer Sheikh
I used to work very long hours. Then I started to realize that the stuff that I was writing in the late afternoons, I was generally throwing out. So I quit earlier than I used to.
Robert Caro
I think, generally, the creative process is hurt if you’re thinking about the end as opposed to focusing on day-to-day decisions.
Jason Blum
Generally I don’t care about what people say. I have to be clear with myself. When everything goes well, people celebrate you, when you make mistakes people criticize you.
Sebastian Vettel
For the average person, taken to their sick bed, it takes a serious bout of pneumonia or a full body cast to completely forget the life they had prior to falling off the rollercoaster. I, however, will do this over a paper cut on my thumb, obsessing of said cut and being generally consumed by it.
Sloane Crosley
I think generally I’m kind of interested in subjective experience, what goes on inside someone’s head, that being all they really know of the world.
Charlie Kaufman
You watch the Supreme Court in action on these cases, and they are a conflicted court. However, when it comes to speech issues generally, the court has been protective.
Jay Alan Sekulow
The aspect of congresses and such meetings generally to which I attach the greatest importance is the discussion. That is why people assemble: to hear different opinions, rather than to pass resolutions.
Fredrik Bajer
Generally what I produce is new. Of course, they are often variations on the same subject.
Sergio Aragones
People are generally proud of their food. A willingness to eat and drink with people without fear and prejudice… they open up to you in ways that somebody visiting who is driven by a story may not get.
Anthony Bourdain
The Cause of Women is generally the Cause of Virtue.
Samuel Richardson
I’m generally more and more in my comfort zone in the wild.
Tom Felton
We need to take vegetables out of the role of side dish, even in low-fat, vegetarian diets, whose calories are generally derived mainly from grains and other starches.
Joel Fuhrman
No man deserves to be praised for his goodness, who has it not in his power to be wicked. Goodness without that power is generally nothing more than sloth, or an impotence of will.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Generally my typical books have lots of twists and turns a big surprise ending and then usually another surprise at the end and ideally, as in Garden of Beasts, we get to the very end and we find at the last few pages that there’s yet another surprise.
Jeffery Deaver
I was not an outstanding student. I did a reasonable amount of work. I got generally good – pretty good grades, but I was not that passionate about getting straight A’s.
Steve Case
When we study Shakespeare on the page, for academic purposes, we may require all kinds of help. Generally, we read him in modern spelling and with modern punctuation, and with notes. But any poetry that is performed – from song lyric to tragic speech – must make its point, as it were, without reference back.
James Fenton
I like to take risks and do weird things and stuff that’s not normal compared to other Hollywood movies. Not stuff that’s totally avant garde and daring, but doing stuff that’s in other languages and not using stars and using real people – things that they generally don’t do in mainstream films.
Eli Roth
I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it.
Mae West
Big waves are a whole different ball game. You’re riding a wave with an immense amount of speed and power, generally over 10 meters. On the face of the wave, obviously life and death thoughts start to happen.
Kelly Slater
This kind of overall way of thinking is not only a fertile source of new theoretical ideas: it is needed for the human mind to function in a generally harmonious way, which could in turn help to make possible an orderly and stable society.
David Bohm
I think Jim Taylor was very underrated, never hear much about him. We played Green Bay every year in exhibition, and generally we played them every couple of years in regular season. And I always thought he was a fierce competitor.
Bob Lilly
I think Sadio Mane is lucky the way Liverpool play. His job is pretty much to stay on one half of the field. Yes, he does come back and help out defensively every now and again, but generally he’s told to stay in the attacking half of the field and go at defenders.
Steve Nicol
Generally, I think America is America. America has been through suffering like other countries, but America will come up. I have no doubt. It’s just going to bounce. You know, you have ups and downs.
Ivana Trump
I don’t believe in trickle-down economics. I don’t think that people who have the most are inclined to share it, generally.
Dave Matthews
The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they’re going to have some pretty annoying virtues.
Elizabeth Taylor
My hair is naturally curly, and in the 80’s, even though I experimented with different lengths, I generally wore it curly. Since then, I’ve learned how to use a blow dryer and flat iron.
Susanna Hoffs
When we let cops talk about themselves as a separate community, then we are letting cops wall themselves off from the rest of us. We don’t generally do that with any other jobs. We don’t talk about the barista community or the Wal-Mart greeter community.
W. Kamau Bell
The business of horror movies goes up and down, and people are always like, ‘It’s working,’ ‘It’s not working,’ but generally, I think if you make a good movie that’s scary, people will come.
Jason Blum
Most men are far younger when they have their children and they’re building their careers. If they are older they probably don’t have the luxury of retiring – and generally sixty something-year-old men don’t choose to have a child and spend all their time with that child. So it was a very unique situation.
Jennifer Grant
I have made a career of bumbling around places, stumbling on landmarks and generally being quite haphazard and shambolic about the way I go about things.
Bill Bryson
I grew up with low self-esteem. I didn’t think I was very pretty. I had glasses, red hair and was generally quite a spod.
Mark Gatiss
But it’s just that the whole country is making generally lousy films these days and has been for quite a while. That’s the big problem that we all have to think about.
Alexander Payne
There are two phases to a movie. First you shoot the movie, and then you make the movie. Generally, post-production is longer than filming.
Keenen Ivory Wayans
I generally unwind by having dinner with close friends.
Nelson DeMille
Heroes are not known by the loftiness of their carriage; the greatest braggarts are generally the merest cowards.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Generally a chef’s book is like a calling card or a portfolio to display their personal work.
Sally Schneider
I don’t think I was a naturally born talent, surely I had some natural attributes, which perhaps helped me in my sport, but generally speaking I wasn’t competitive in nature.
Abhinav Bindra
Greatness, generally speaking, is an unusual quantity of a usual quality grafted upon a common man.
William Allen White
But it is important to observe that when Europe or the United Nations impose sanctions that are supposed to be aimed against a certain regime, usually generally millions of people end up being directly punished.
Omar Bongo
We come to meditation to learn how not to act out the habitual tendencies we generally live by – those actions that create suffering for ourselves and others, and get us into so much trouble.
Sharon Salzberg
Persuasion is achieved by the speaker’s personal character when the speech is so spoken as to make us think him credible. We believe good men more fully and more readily than others: this is true generally whatever the question is, and absolutely true where exact certainty is impossible and opinions are divided.
Aristotle
A proof of really great art is that it is generally true – it seldom falls into the misapprehensions to which minor art is liable.
Lafcadio Hearn
While imperfect, the electoral college has generally served the republic well. It forces candidates to campaign in a variety of closely contested races, where political debate is typically robust.
William M. Daley
Prophecy, however honest, is generally a poor substitute for experience.
Benjamin N. Cardozo
The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.
David Friedman
I think generally the Japanese players have more intensity in practice but generally I do the same things.
Arsene Wenger
We’re constantly told that all cultures are equal, and that every belief system is as good as the next. And it led to a kind of – and generally, that America was to be known for its flaws rather than its virtues.
Frank Miller
The male, for all his bravado and exploration, is the loyal one, the one who generally feels love. The female is skilled at betrayal and torture and damnation.
Charles Bukowski
A radical generally meant a man who thought he could so

A radical generally meant a man who thought he could somehow pull up the root without affecting the flower. A conservative generally meant a man who wanted to conserve everything except his own reason for conserving anything.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Yeah, I have been because, generally speaking, to we Biblical literalists, the media is very hostile.
Tim LaHaye
A less icy Arctic is coming, and generally speaking, that’s not a good thing. Climate change is warming this region twice as fast as the global average, threatening wildlife and indigenous communities.
Tatiana Schlossberg
People from North India are generally known to be aggressive and emotional.
Virat Kohli
I think that generally New Zealand is respected for the positions it takes because it thinks them through.
Helen Clark
The arts community is generally dominated by liberals because if you are concerned mainly with painting or sculpture, you don’t have time to study how the world works. And if you have no understanding of economics, strategy, history and politics, then naturally you would be a liberal.
Mark Helprin
Men of integrity are generally pretty obstinate, in adhering to an opinion once adopted.
William Cobbett
I generally only eat one meal a day, which is pretty unusual for a restaurant reviewer. It’s not that I have a problem with food; I’ll eat anything that doesn’t involve a bet, a dare, or an initiation ceremony.
A. A. Gill
Shields were generally made of wood, covered with leather, or some similar substance. To secure them, in some sort, from being cut through by the sword, they were surrounded with a hoop of metal.
Thomas Bulfinch
But no, I don’t generally have trouble with spelling mistakes.
Bill Joy
If you go out to Hollywood you’ll find a lot of fantastic plastic people there in the business and a lot of people in life generally. They find it so hard to be themselves that they have to be plastic.
Jimmy Cliff
But generally speaking, I tend to be quiet and introspective.
Rowan Atkinson
I think it’s crucial for athletes to get plenty of fluids whether their regime is intensive or not. For me, generally, I eat and drink a lot so that I’m always at the top of my game.
Mario Gotze
I don’t think I have ever done anything for this age of children before, a pre-school audience. Generally speaking, we don’t have vivid memories of that age and what influenced us, yet clearly they are hugely formative years and it’s really important that we can create television of a high quality for that audience.
David Tennant
Without an adequate response, an epidemic can develop into a pandemic, which generally means it has spread to more than one continent.
Alan Huffman
I have come close to producing films. But generally by the time they hit the screen, there’s about 50 people with producer credits, so what’s the point. I usually find scripts I like with no money attached and take them to producers that I know and try to raise finance.
Tim Roth
I enjoy having some boundaries to work within. That’s why I generally don’t like alternate tunings and stuff like that. I like the boundaries of regular tunings.
J Mascis
Six months after that, I left Taiwan, first for Hong Kong and then for mainland China, where I spent another three months studying still more Chinese and generally kicking around the country.
Eric Allin Cornell
Thinking is generally thought of as doing nothing in a production-oriented society, and doing nothing is hard to do. It’s best done by disguising it as doing something, and the something closest to doing nothing is walking.
Rebecca Solnit
Shame is a fitter and generally a more effectual punishment for a child than beating.
Samuel Richardson
As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable. In our everyday experience, if something has never happened before, we are generally safe in assuming it is not going to happen in the future, but the exceptions can kill you and climate change is one of those exceptions.
Al Gore
I generally try and have great days, because I feel very lucky to be doing what I’m doing.
Imogen Poots
First of all, just because the Tea Party people appear to be generally uneducated, ignorant about the political process, ignorant about economics, confused about their own platform from the beginning, and indelicate when it comes to the craft of diplomacy, doesn’t mean they’re wrong.
Steven Van Zandt
Generally, I’m a pretty mellow guy.
Shaun White
I don’t snack. I don’t generally eat sweets or drink soda. I never eat between meals or even before big ones.
Anthony Bourdain
That the more authoritarian organizations survive and prevail goes generally unnoticed because people focus on the objectives of organizations, which are many and varied, rather than on their structures, which lend to be similar.
Robert Shea
Generally, my writing is influenced by living, by absorbing everything that happens to me and my actions.
Graham Nash
If the consumer generally feels like they are going to have a job… access to money… we will see them spend that.
Doug McMillon
Whenever nature leaves a hole in a person’s mind, she generally plasters it over with a thick coat of self-conceit.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I’ve been on so many movies. Generally, I haven’t gotten to be on the ground level. As of two years ago, in ‘Dear John,’ I got to really be on the ground floor. I wasn’t a producer. I felt like I put the work in, and I did have a lot of sway on what got fixed, reshoots, so on and so forth. It felt really good.
Channing Tatum
I don’t think generally politician come from democratic country. I think not that thinking. But sometimes little bit short-sighted. They are mainly looking for their next vote.
Dalai Lama
Generally, I think my work has so much influence becaus

Generally, I think my work has so much influence because of its reasonableness.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
French novels generally treat of the relations of women to the world and to lovers, after marriage; consequently there is a great deal in French novels about adultery, about improper relations between the sexes, about many things which the English public would not allow.
Lafcadio Hearn
None of us had any idea of how successful Downton was going to be. I thought I was signing up for another period drama that had a slightly modern feel. It had a freedom about it because it was coming out of the head of Julian Fellowes. Anything could happen and generally did.
Dan Stevens
The Reagan Administration, generally regarded as having conducted the most successful Transition of modern times, had managed during the election campaign to build bridges to the Democrats in some areas, notably foreign and national security policy.
Richard V. Allen
In legal language, a covenant generally denotes an agreement between two or more parties. But in a religious context, a covenant is much more significant. It is a sacred promise with God. He fixes the terms.
Russell M. Nelson
I’ve mis-signed many a book Rollins or Clemens. My readers quickly become aware. Booksellers will often promote me under both names, and I do plug both at signings. Generally, the fantasy reader has no problem going into the suspense genre. It’s harder for the typical suspense reader to go the other direction.
James Rollins
The engineer, and more generally the designer, is concerned with how things ought to be – how they ought to be in order to attain goals, and to function.
Herbert A. Simon
I wish I had the ability to crack wise, generally. You know, without getting punched. There’s no way I could do it while getting beaten up. Definitely.
Guy Pearce
I think male authors who want to try to tackle these issues of representation of women can generally do a better job if they try to question traditional notions of masculinity and the sort of toxic nature of traditional ways of presenting masculinity.
Ken Liu
Generally in my films like ‘Hearts of Darkness’ or ‘Picture This,’ I try not to make myself a presence in the film.
George Hickenlooper
My work generally tends to be an all-out, 360-degree subversive take on everything, most of all my own notion of myself as a son, father, husband, human being and male in this culture.
Mark Leyner
Generally, I find the hotter the temperature, the cooler I am.
Katy Tur
One cannot be too extreme in dealing with social ills; the extreme thing is generally the true thing.
Emma Goldman
The way I pick who gets caked is generally by who shows me the most energy and is screaming for it. I still can’t help but ask myself… should I stop caking people? Will that stop the haters from hating? Stop giving the trolls more content to target me with?
Steve Aoki
There’s a certain amount of pressure that comes from playing real people. It’s a pressure to deliver something fair and right to the real person and any living relatives. But generally, it’s a joy, as you get to target your interest on a particular era.
Lydia Leonard
I have a rule in research: The third time you hear something, it’s generally true.
James L. Brooks
Walter Cronkite was a personally decent and convivial man, who literally couldn’t kill a fly, was kind to his children, generally helpful to juniors, authentically curious about the news, and, in his time, an energetic reporter.
Conrad Black
I generally leave the details of fiscal programs to the Administration and Congress. That’s really their area of authority and responsibility, and I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to second guess.
Ben Bernanke
I generally don’t think most situations can be labeled as black or white.
Heath Ledger
I like physics. I think it is the best science out of all three of them, because generally it’s more useful. You learn about speed and velocity and time, and that’s all clever stuff.
Tom Felton
Generally, when I am working, I tend to learn from my seniors and juniors.
Rishi Kapoor
I’ve politely declined a few reality-type things but generally have been asked to do things that I’d enjoy. I’ll be doing less in the new year so I can get some writing done.
Greg Davies
Generally I finish a first draft in 2-6 months, then I set it aside for a while so that when I come back to it I can read it with fresh eyes and figure out how to improve it.
Margaret Haddix
The young athlete who aspires to greatness, generally speaking, learns a number of things from several different coaches. The first one taught him the fundamentals; the second one instilled discipline in him and taught him more of the techniques that must be mastered to excel.
Zig Ziglar
I generally leave the television on while I’m working.
Akira Toriyama
People generally quarrel because they cannot argue.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
You feel it in there, pacing your heart sometimes, and it has what’s called a defibrillator. Should I suffer that arhythmia, it’s generally sudden death. And the paddles that are internal shock you back and restore your rhythm to its normal and natural state.
Victoria Gotti
I think generally I’m a pretty good person if I had to grade myself. Or toot my own horn.
Kid Rock
You must realize that honorary degrees are given generally to people whose SAT scores were too low to get them into schools the regular way. As a matter of fact, it was my SAT scores that led me into my present vocation in life, comedy.
Neil Simon
As a children’s author, reviewers are generally very nice to you. I only ever wrote one adult book and received such a kicking for it that I was in trauma for the next six months.
Anthony Horowitz
What we anticipate seldom occurs: but what we least expect generally happens.
Benjamin Disraeli
When men attempt bold gestures, generally it's consider

When men attempt bold gestures, generally it’s considered romantic. When women do it, it’s often considered desperate or psycho.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Every man becomes, to a certain degree, what the people he generally converses with are.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
You know, the dirty secret in the Director’s Guild is that the average life expectancy of Director’s Guild members is 57 years old. The stress level is so high and directors are generally really out of shape, cause they sit in the chair and they eat craft service.
Eli Roth
A truly elegant taste is generally accompanied with excellency of heart.
Henry Fielding
I enjoy some physical stuff. But if I had a choice between playing a scene where it’s raining, it’s terribly cold, I’m wet and I’m being drowned and playing a scene with dinosaur eggs in a laboratory, I’d probably take the latter. It’s warmer and generally more comfortable!
Sam Neill
I’ve never looked at my career in terms of, What haven’t I done that I want to do? I just generally find a story that I think is a good one and go to work.
Kurt Russell
The voice of the people has been said to be the voice of God; and, however generally this maxim has been quoted and believed, it is not true to fact. The people are turbulent and changing, they seldom judge or determine right.
Alexander Hamilton
Of course, a law that is selectively used is in one aspect even worse than a law that is generally used because it puts a lot of power in individuals’ hands and makes government a rule, not of laws, but of people.
Vikram Seth
Generally I’m against regulation.
Dorothy Denning
T20 is generally the fun side of cricket. You’ve got to have a sense of humour. Some days you can turn up and get whacked. Next game turn up, bowl the same and you don’t go for many. You have to take it as it comes.
Ben Stokes
I am also the product of a place called Paint Creek. Doesn’t have a zip code. It’s too small to be called a town along the rolling plains of Texas. We grew dryland cotton and wheat, and when I wasn’t farming or attending Paint Creek Rural School, I was generally over at Troop 48 working on my Eagle Scout award.
Rick Perry
If you look at the publishers I’ve worked with, generally, they’re a great bunch. Creation is unlike any other publishing house you can think of. The people I’ve worked with have integrity and intelligence and, almost always, less money than ideas.
Peter Sotos
I think that generally music should be a positive thing, I like Bob Marley’s attitude: he said that his goal in life was to single handedly fight all the evil in the world with nothing but music, and when he went to a place he didn’t go to play, he went to conquer.
Jon Fishman
I generally wake up, exercise and read through a huge amount of newspapers. I get to the office somewhere between 7:30 and 8:00 – my brothers and I are always the first ones in.
Ivanka Trump
Generally speaking, the errors in religion are dangerous; those in philosophy only ridiculous.
David Hume
Germany can generally only pay if the Corridor and Upper Silesia will be handed back to Germany from Polish possession, and if besides somewhere on the earth colonial territory will be made available to Germany.
Hjalmar Schacht
The employer generally gets the employees he deserves.
J. Paul Getty
Washington is still very much a male-oriented culture. Being from Los Angeles, I think it is less so there – there is less attachment to tradition, perhaps, there is more flexibility, more acceptance of change generally. That is partly because of Hollywood.
Dee Dee Myers
People generally let me be me. People are aware that I’m not someone particularly begging for attention. They hold back a bit with me.
Sade Adu
A new philosophy generally means in practice the praise of some old vice.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I think, generally, most people can’t maintain anything that’s particularly strict for very long. I watch people trying and failing to do that a lot.
Anna Paquin
When philosophers try to be politicians they generally cease to be philosophers.
Walter Lippmann
For exercise, I tend to like the outdoors. In Paris, I rent a bike in the street and cycle around, and in L.A. I live up in the hills so I go hiking a lot. I like to stay fit by being generally active.
Diane Kruger
She generally gave herself very good advice, (though she very seldom followed it).
Lewis Carroll
Indeed, the whole company, although thin in flesh, and generally of slight forms, and limbs, especially, are as good looking and intelligent a body of men as we usually meet with.
Lewis Tappan
Rekindled love is generally short-term.
Nicholas Sparks
You can really help support a character if you understand the setting. So for that reason I generally write about Philadelphia.
Lisa Scottoline
When Roosevelt came along, I approved of his program, generally. I figured an economic system should work for people, not vice versa.
Sargent Shriver
Generally, Hollywood makes the same stories over and over. I’ve never wanted to do the same thing twice. If a script doesn’t surprise me in some way, I simply can’t commit to the project.
Sherilyn Fenn
When people wear shoes that don’t fit them, it says something about their soul. Generally, I think it means they are good people.
Billy Bob Thornton
The defendant wants to hide the truth because he’s generally guilty. The defense attorney’s job is to make sure the jury does not arrive at that truth.
Alan Dershowitz
A tool is usually more simple than a machine; it is gen

A tool is usually more simple than a machine; it is generally used with the hand, whilst a machine is frequently moved by animal or steam power.
Charles Babbage
Well, I love what you would call boys’ music, you know, the prodigy, banging techno, music that girls generally don’t like.
Chris Lowe
A reporter asked recently, ‘What keeps you up at night?’ I replied that I generally sleep well, but if I ever do have trouble, I don’t have to count sheep. I count all the states I’m glad I’m not the governor of.
Mitch McConnell
I am the candidate of tax cuts, repealing Obamacare, repealing Dodd-Frank, letting the markets work, coming up with patient-and-doctor-centered healthcare solutions instead of more big government – and just generally getting government off the backs of small businesses.
Wendy Long
Among a people generally corrupt liberty cannot long exist.
Edmund Burke
I actually don’t believe in big government, and half the time I’m never quite sure I believe in government, generally.
Sebastian Coe
Generally the whole entertainment business now is bland.
Eartha Kitt
You know that neither numbers nor strength give the victory, but that side which, with the assistance of the gods, attacks with the greatest resolution is generally irresistible.
Xenophon
I’m very organized and tidy in my home life and I generally do something myself rather than farm it out to somebody else. I don’t have an assistant or anything because I think I can do it myself.
Mark Strong
I think private ownership is generally superior to public because you care about the land more and it doesn’t get trashed.
John C. Malone
In the United States, commentators recognize that, generally speaking, most people who hold liberal positions over a range of issues will likely vote Democratic, while most people, again generally speaking, who hold conservative positions will vote Republican.
Stockwell Day
The imaginations of believers have dressed up and exaggerated the excellence of the style and matter of the New Testament generally, in the same manner, in which they have the moral instructions of Jesus.
Lysander Spooner
As far as I’m concerned, it’s a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity.
Hunter S. Thompson
I have no conceit as a writer; in fact, I find it very difficult to start writing about sculpture generally & my aims in particular.
Henry Moore
She always says, my lord, that facts are like cows. If you look them in the face hard enough they generally run away.
Dorothy L. Sayers
It seems that this situation is not restricted to science but is more generally human.
Felix Bloch
When we say ‘less fortunate,’ we generally mean the poor rather than the disabled, who actually are less fortunate. In truth, the poor are generally ‘less fortunate’ only in terms of genetics. They are certainly not less fortunate in the amount of help they receive.
Ben Shapiro
On stage, generally speaking, the story is stopped or held back by songs, because that’s the convention. Audiences enjoy the song and the singer, that’s the point.
Stephen Sondheim
I spend so much time thinking and I don’t generally have strong emotional reactions too much.
Trevor Bauer
I like working-class people, generally speaking.
Jordan Peterson
I’m generally intimidated by adults.
Mayim Bialik
Ring Kuot, a 15-year-old Sudanese boy, was rumored to be eight feet three. And until Leonid’s emergence at eight feet four inches last spring, people generally assumed that Radhouane Charbib of Tunisia, at seven feet nine, was the tallest documented man in the world.
Michael Paterniti
It is of great importance to our country generally, and especially to our navigating and whaling interests, that the Pacific Coast and, indeed, the whole of our territory west of the Rocky Mountains, should speedily be filled up by a hardy and patriotic population.
James K. Polk
And I hope very much that the ALP will become increasingly engaged in the international discussions that are taking place amongst centre-left parties generally.
Patricia Hewitt
Outside of the mindless sitcoms that the networks thrive on, people able to think generally consider most entertainment is escape in one form or another.
Gary Gygax
The best thing about me is that I am generally very honest – not hurtfully honest, but honest. The worst thing about me is that everybody can make me feel guilty. I feel responsible about things that don’t even concern me.
Carolyn Jones
There are numerous bugbears in the profession of a politician. First, ordinary life suffers. Second, there are many temptations to ruin you and those around you. And I suppose third, and this is rarely discussed, people at the top generally have no friends.
Boris Yeltsin
For those of us in the political business, generally, it’s been pretty much an unwritten but understood rule that family and children are out of bounds, that you don’t attack someone’s family.
Michael Nutter
In the past, people generally believed they could acquire magic in two ways: through learning the craft, either from another practitioner or from books; or through obtaining magic from a powerful being-think Faust or the classic, demonized witch, both of whom get their mojo from Satan.
David Liss
No, generally I think influence is used as a nice word for plagiarism.
Gilbert Gottfried
Generally, a rising trend in rates is bearish for stocks; a falling trend is bullish.
Martin Zweig
Generally speaking, the public appetite for criminal ju

Generally speaking, the public appetite for criminal justice policy is just tough talk.
Kamala Harris
Husbands and wives generally understand when opposition will be vain.
Jane Austen
A small species of pinus was much prized, and, when dwarfed in the manner of the Chinese, fetched a very high price; it is generally grafted on a variety of the stone pine.
Robert Fortune
Generally I don’t like doing remakes, but I think that’s more in the cynical world of Hollywood where normally remakes are purely for commercial reasons.
Gerard Butler
The PhD system is the real root of the evil of academic snobbery. People who have PhDs consider themselves a priesthood, and inventors generally don’t have PhDs.
Freeman Dyson
The young are generally full of revolt, and are often pretty revolting about it.
Mignon McLaughlin
There is one safeguard known generally to the wise, which is an advantage and security to all, but especially to democracies as against despots – suspicion.
Demosthenes
I am not generally regarded as a pleasant or socially minded fellow.
Caryl Chessman
I was a big fan of Jim Hall as well. I liked his comping style, his accompanying. And that he played, generally, four note chords, the top four strings of the guitar.
Gary Burton
You have certain writing tools but generally creating something from nothing makes one quite mad and Cynthia and I are quite mad you know.
Barry Mann
Naturally, the reader has access only to the events I show and the way I show them, but as has been said, there’s generally a good deal of ambiguity in that presentation.
John M. Ford
Between 21-30 women go through humungous changes. After that, they’ve generally achieved what they wanted, and they’re more settled.
Rod Stewart
I thought that subtitles are boring because they’re there generally to serve us with information to make you understand what people are saying in a different language.
Tony Scott
It isn’t generally the case that liberals dominate entire hierarchies. That isn’t generally how it works, because the hierarchies are usually set up so that conservatives fill up the hierarchies; it’s in the nature of hierarchy.
Jordan Peterson
But generally speaking, I felt to engage in the political process was to sully oneself to such a degree that whatever came out wasn’t worth the trouble put in.
John Perry Barlow
Until the 20th century it was generally assumed that a writer had said what he had to say in his works.
John Updike
I have to be a lot more calculating because I’m a very private person. I actually really struggle with the attention; I’m generally a pretty shy kind of a person. So it’s tough figuring out how to manage it. But there are ways of managing it, and you just have to be smart.
Emily Watson
I used to hate exposure situations. What is generally referred to as ‘red carpet.’
Christoph Waltz
If you go out on the Appalachian Trail, you have to bring so much more equipment – a tent, sleeping bag – but if you go hiking in England, or Europe, generally, towns and villages are near enough together at the end of the day you can always go to a nice little inn and have a hot bath and something to drink.
Bill Bryson
Temporary teams of trusted people are generally sent to all Departments and to major agencies of government to assist in planning and to acquaint the incoming administration with the civil servants and bureaucracy that will remain in place in the new Administration.
Richard V. Allen
My style is difficult to contain in a sentence; it’s ever evolving. Generally I’m drawn to clean cuts and avoid patterns. I tend to choose structure and block colors, but these are all just loose guidelines.
Daphne Guinness
If there is one good thing I can say about the Republicans, it is that they are generally better than Democrats at putting the interests of their party above the interests of any one of its members.
Peter Navarro
If anyone has a conscience it’s generally a guilty one.
Max Frisch
One of the ways that Microsoft beat Apple way back in the day was that they were a lot more open; today, in the world I come from, the free software and open-source world, Microsoft is not generally viewed as open; they’re viewed as proprietary.
Jimmy Wales
Those who have least to do are generally the most busy people in the world.
Samuel Richardson
In the steel industry the corporations generally have accepted collective bargaining and negotiated wage agreements with the Committee for Industrial Organization.
John L. Lewis
While farmers generally allow one rooster for ten hens, ten men are scarcely sufficient to service one woman.
Giovanni Boccaccio
When Shakespeare begins his exposition thus he generally at first makes people talk about the hero, but keeps the hero himself for some time out of sight, so that we await his entrance with curiosity, and sometimes with anxiety.
Andrew Coyle Bradley
Satire is a sort of glass, wherein beholders do generally discover everybody’s face but their own.
Jonathan Swift
I think we match up with anybody because our pitching. In a short series you run your big three out there or four out there. That generally is what wins a series – pitching and defense. If we can catch the ball and not give away any runs like we do sometimes.
Dusty Baker
The thing generally raised on city land is taxes.
Charles Dudley Warner
Music has generally involved a lot of awkward contrapti

Music has generally involved a lot of awkward contraptions, a certain amount of heavy lifting.
Tom Waits
So the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is out there preserving and fighting for, and sometimes winning and sometimes losing, the fight for First Amendment rights in comics and, more generally, for freedom of speech.
Neil Gaiman
I’ve never lost perspective on who I am. Well, maybe briefly, but generally I’m pretty balanced.
Sting
If you look at the history of the American capital market, there’s probably no innovation more important than the idea of generally accepted accountancy principles.
Lawrence Summers
My dad, Frank Addison Albini, was a terrific shot with a rifle and had generally excellent hunting skills. While my dad loved hunting and fishing, he didn’t romanticize them. He was filling the freezer, not intellectualizing some caveman impulse or proving his worth as a real man.
Steve Albini
It is easy to respect secular Americans who hold fast to the Constitution and to American values generally. And any one of us who believes in God can understand why some people, given all the unjust suffering in the world, just cannot believe that there is a Providential Being.
Dennis Prager
You generally hear that what a man doesn’t know doesn’t hurt him, but in business what a man doesn’t know does hurt.
Gerald Brenan
Beauty is that quality which, next to money, is generally the most attractive to the worst kinds of men; and, therefore, it is likely to entail a great deal of trouble on the possessor.
Anne Bronte
One of the litmus tests for judicial conservatism is the idea of judicial restraint – that courts should give substantial deference to the decisions of the political process. When Congress and the president enact a law, conservatives generally say, judges should avoid ‘legislating from the bench.’
Jeff Greenfield
The man I lived with is a Christian, so I would talk to him about it. What would this person do in the Bible? What’s the story around this person? Generally, when people talk about characters in the Bible, there’s one thing they’re known for, like Job.
Lucinda Williams
Noises have generally been thought of as indistinct, but this is not true.
Pierre Schaeffer
People generally don’t recognize how long it takes to conceive, publish, and write a book.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I think that building any product that has a lot of user loyalty is a bit like making a sequel to a great movie or video game – people generally want ‘more of the same thing, except better and different.’
Yishan Wong
It’s very important in a restaurant to really do the right hiring because there’s no restaurant that you have one cook and one chef and nobody else in the kitchen. Generally you have five, ten, 15 people with you. So that’s really important is to train them right, but first you have to hire the right people.
Wolfgang Puck
Generally speaking, I’m a jeans, T-shirt and boots man but I do own an Armani suit, which gets a regular outing. It’s nothing fancy – just a classic, well-cut suit with clean lines and beautiful tailoring. It’s timeless and you can mix and match it with anything to dress up or dress down.
Matthew Rhys
You don’t service a big, fun premise comedy and then shoot yourself in the foot with too much irony. You need the audience to invest in the fun and the warmth and generally care about the characters.
Shawn Levy
It’s extremely seldom that anybody wants me to change what I’ve written about them. Generally I portray them in a good light, if they’re friends.
Harvey Pekar
I use a G-Pen from Zebra. Different people have different preferred pen nibs. I don’t put much force on it when I draw, so I’ll generally use a single nib for about three chapters.
Akira Toriyama
I requested the gentlemen to put on their hats, and the ladies their shawls, to avoid catching cold, and then had the windows widely opened. This proceeding caused some astonishment and alarm at first; for the Americans generally have a dread of cold air.
George Combe
For some reason, I grew up generally believing that Japan and Korea were quite friendly. I do know that there is some bad history and the extremists on both sides are unreasonable.
Joichi Ito
