I suppose I could admire all these slow Seattle drivers

I suppose I could admire all these slow Seattle drivers for their safety-mindedness, consideration for others, and peace of mind. Instead, I’m a fury of annoyance.
Maria Semple
‘M Train’ is as close to knowing what I’m like as anything. I don’t know exactly what the book is about. All and nothing, I suppose.
Patti Smith
Acting is about communicating what it is like to be human: the pain, the laughs, the misery, the joy. I suppose I am searching to have it all.
Rosamund Pike
It is a mistake to suppose that men succeed through success; they much oftener succeed through failures. Precept, study, advice, and example could never have taught them so well as failure has done.
Samuel Smiles
Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate.
Phyllis Schlafly
I never had a mother. I suppose a mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled.
Emily Dickinson
There’s never been a game plan, and I suppose I’ve had an uneasy relationship with my ambition. Someone who had been in my year at drama school once said to me that I was terrifyingly ambitious back then. Which was not at all what I felt at the time – I felt paralysed with shyness, though that evaporated.
Jennifer Ehle
I suppose you could say I love outlaw American culture.
Jamaica Kincaid
I didn’t want to be a former child actor for the rest of my life, although in some ways I suppose I am. I am going to be that.

Danielle de Niese
The way I choose to dress, I want to influence other people around me, I suppose.
Bindi Irwin
So long as the universe had a beginning, we could suppose it had a creator. But if the universe is really completely self-contained, having no boundary or edge, it would have neither beginning nor end: it would simply be. What place, then, for a creator?
Stephen Hawking
I was brought up in a publishing home, a newspaper man’s home, and was excited by that, I suppose. I saw that life at close range and, after the age of ten or twelve, never really considered any other.
Rupert Murdoch
I suppose popularity is measured by ratings. If a broadcaster is known as the leader because of ratings, then that’s where people most want to be seen and heard, so there’s no question that there’s an advantage.
Walter Cronkite
The embarrassment of a situation can, once you are over it, be the funniest time in your life. And I suppose a lot of my comedy comes from painful moments or experiences in life, and you just flip them on their head.
Miranda Hart
I suppose it’s amazing when you think how many things people get involved in that don’t work.
Tim Berners-Lee
I think the best comedy is tragicomic. Yeah, I suppose if you were to look at everything I’ve done, there is a bit of a black streak through all of it. It’s not deliberate: it’s what makes me laugh, and there’s a fine tradition of it, especially in Ireland.
Sharon Horgan
It’s hard to say how certain stories just punch us in the heart and the brain at the same time at the end. I suppose that’s what we’re all looking for. But each story has its own valence, its own way of saying goodbye to you.
T. C. Boyle
In playing, I suppose my greatest gift was to express the way I felt or the willingness to express myself.

Atom Egoyan
I suppose the things you remember about someone who has died are the funny moments. Those are the ones that stand out.
Harry Lloyd
‘Old times’ never come back and I suppose it’s just as well. What comes back is a new morning every day in the year, and that’s better.
George Edward Woodberry
‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?’ In my case, I suppose it’s not just a cliche.
Saul Niguez
I think a lot of good actors – for instance, Gary Sinise – have no training. His training was really entirely on his feet. I suppose you have to have an instinct for it.
Glenne Headly
I always felt free when I ran. I suppose that’s what was good about it.
Betty Cuthbert
I suppose I’ve been selfish in the past and put my career first. But priorities change.
Ray Fearon
More people seem to know the Van der Graaf Generator material than my solo work – thanks, I suppose, to their parents’ lingering vinyl collections.
Peter Hammill
I constantly felt (as I suppose many an ambitious girl has felt) a thumping from within unanswered by any beckoning from without.
Anna Julia Cooper

David Chipperfield
After all, life hasn’t much to offer except youth, and I suppose for older people, the love of youth in others.
F. Scott Fitzgerald

I suppose I've got a reputation for playing quite extre

I suppose I’ve got a reputation for playing quite extreme characters and making them quite believable.

Garth Ennis
People are more aware now of cities and of different ways of life. I suppose the writing I do is a bit in the past, and I’m not sure it’s the kind of writing I would do if I were starting now.
Alice Munro
Anyone can learn a trick, but to make it entertaining, to put a presentation twist on it, and then to take it out there and really amaze people is a whole different ball game. You have to have some kind of a natural ability to do that, I suppose.
Keith Barry
My main point here is that if you are the child of God and God is a part of you, the in your imagination God suppose to look like you. And when you accept a picture of the deity assigned to you by another people, you become the spiritual prisoners of that other people.
John Henrik Clarke
Some people haven’t got a life, I suppose. They want to be on the road all the time.
Jon Anderson
Clark Kent, I suppose, had a little bit of Harold Lloyd in him.
Joe Shuster
He was a great man, my granddad, a very calm, logical and methodical guy. I suppose I’m trying to be more like him as I get older.

Emilia Fox
Before ‘Titanic,’ yes, I had done some things and, yes, I had been nominated for an Academy Award, but I had never been sort of world-famous. And I suppose, yes, I am really famous now. But I feel embarrassed to say that because it’s just a bit daft for me.
Kate Winslet
Since then, I have just read and read – but, that said, I suppose there is a raft of writers to whom I return again and again, not so much because I want to write like them, even if I were capable of it, but simply for a sort of stylistic shot in the arm.
Penelope Lively
I wrote about wasting time, which I suppose is a part of the great human journey. We’re supposed to wallow, to go through the desert without water for a long time so that when we finally drink it, we’ll truly need it and we won’t spill a drop. It’s about being present.
Walton Goggins
I love poetry; it’s my primary literary interest, and I suppose the kind of reading you do when you are reading poems – close reading – can carry over into how you read other things.
Jonathan Galassi
Generally, my notes and outlines comprise more words than my novels. I suppose that’s one reason I’m a comparatively slow writer, something that has always bothered me given the fact that other authors can turn out a book every six months while I usually take about two years.
Frank Peretti
I suppose because I have a good ear, I could pick out harmonies and learn by ear. I still think that you have to have an ear for music to really be able to feel and understand what you’re playing. You can learn by watching and listening to other people.
Mick Taylor
Life is not quantifiable in terms of age, but I suppose in my fifties I am more grounded and more at ease in my own skin than when I was younger. I have a confidence that I didn’t have before from the experiences I’ve had.
Annie Lennox
Some stories, my property, have been stolen. Someone’s appropriated them. It’s an illicit act. It’s unfair. Suppose you had a coat you liked, and somebody went into your closet and stole it. That’s how I feel.
J. D. Salinger
I suppose you can say I became an odd-job man.
Lord Mountbatten
I suppose I would still prefer to sit under a tree with a picnic basket rather than under a gas pump, but signs and comic strips are interesting as subject matter.
Roy Lichtenstein
I suppose everyone continues to be interested in the quest for the self, but what you feel when you’re older, I think, is that you really must make the self.
Mary McCarthy
Scratch the surface of what’s socially normal. I suppose in some way all of us have something we display to the public and things we feel too ashamed of or uncomfortable with to reveal to other people.
Michael Fassbender
Every single time I step into the studio, I say, ‘Can I still do this? Do I still have it? Have I ever had it?’ I suppose there’s a good amount of self-loathing that goes into any form of artisanship.
Ben Harper
