Virtue itself scapes not calumnious strokes.
The Strokes, you bond when you’re 18, and you’re friends. The feeling’s different. When all of us get into a room, we feel like the same people from before. We weren’t anybody; we were just hanging out. It’s hard to understand if you’re not in a band. You’re one-fifth.
I like to make broader strokes with politics in my work.

Anyone who is drawn in broad strokes either negatively or positively is generally not very interesting to play.
My father had several strokes and heart attacks. I was with him when he died, and it was a horrible death. He had been a very articulate man, and to lose that, never to be able to speak properly and to be unable to move – he had always been a very vigorous man, so to be in a wheelchair and mumbling – was terrible.
Alaskans are basically ‘leave me alone’ type people who respect and embrace different strokes.

Mum was in her early 50s when she had four strokes in quick succession that almost took her off. I’d just come down from Cambridge with a rubbish degree. I spent a year reading to her – her eyesight was badly affected – and making sure she got proper rest. It was a special time but very intense, too.
Well, I am not interested in the kind of expression that you have when you paint a painting with brush strokes. It’s all right, but it’s already done and I want to do something new.
I struggle with arrangements. I take forever doing them. It gets to a point where I’ve been playing around with things on loops for days. I always paint in broad strokes – very quickly, I’ll feel out the larger structure – but it’s putting the details in that I find the hardest part.
Ever since I did that 57.9 last year, the Americans have been analysing me in detail. You can see on the swimming web pages. They are breaking it down in every detail. How many strokes I take. How quick I am in and out of the wall.

The Strokes will never get anywhere after that first record.

To me, writing and composing are much more like painting, about colors and brushes; I don’t use a computer when I write, and I don’t use a piano. I’m at a desk writing, and it’s very broad strokes and notes as colors on a palette.

We were pretty darn good – fit and ready to play – but today’s level is different. Those ground strokes are ever so much faster, coming back at you at a pretty good speed. Footwork-wise, you’ve got to be ready to hit that next shot. It’s a tough time.
If talking about arts means being pretentious, a bit like being a wine critic, then I don’t feel comfy with that. You can get a lot from paintings without getting mystical about brush strokes.

The average juror is not Mr. Spock. If he were, then a trial-court judge’s job would be much easier. He could instruct the jury in broad strokes – instructing only as to the bare elements of the crime, perhaps – and be confident that the jury would deduce all of the finer-grained implications that must logically follow.
The googly and the slider are my favourite type of deliveries, and I love it when batsmen try to cut or sweep me and, while attempting those strokes, get lbw or clean bowled.
To concentrate intensely for 4 and a half hours, that’s too hard for me. Too tiring. I concentrate ‘lo maximo’ on the ‘golpe,’ the stroke, but between strokes I’m interacting with the crowd or laughing with my caddie, talking about the spectators, the cute girls.
One thing common with me and Shikhar Dhawan is that we play a lot of orthodox cricketing strokes. We look to play the ball along the ground and while lofting the ball, it’s more with a vertical bat.
Practice, work out, proper nutrition, lots of work on my short game. In golf, that’s really where the strokes come off the scorecard.

Mary Trump’s ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man’ tells a remarkable story, the broad strokes of which many already knew.

My strokes are safer when I hit full power. They are unsafe when I hold back; it’s more that I force myself to go full power all the time.

Playing on a low surface is always difficult for anyone to play their strokes. You need to be more of a grafter.
I’d rather be two strokes ahead going into the last day than two strokes behind. Having said that, it’s probably easier to win coming from behind. There is no fear in chasing. There is fear in being chased.
So, what is a stroke? In about 90 per cent of strokes, it’s the result of blood flow to part of the brain getting cut off, depriving it of oxygen and killing off the part fed by the clogged artery.

I have a tip that can take 5 strokes off anyone’s golf game. It’s called an eraser.
I was fortunate enough to interact with him when I played for RCB in IPL. I learnt from AB as to how he prepares for a game. I get amazed by the kind of strokes he hits and the time he has got to play those shots.
