Abby Lee Miller
It’s basically taking a 911 call, bringing them on stage and dealing with it just like when I was a Chicago policeman for 12 years. I personally become involved. Where Jerry lets people tell their story and lets everything happen on stage, I kind of go after the bad guy and protect the little guy.

There is a difference between executive producing and producing. Producing, you have no life for two years.

Mangosuthu Buthelezi
My mother – it’s not one of those waxing-poetic kind of things – she literally worked two or three jobs most of her life. So I personally experienced that, even though I had these great friends and associations who had unlimited amounts of money. That juxtaposition was an interesting one.
Gavin Newsom
Byron Saxton is creepy. He has a relationship between me and him going on in his head. I’m not included in this personally – like, I am, but I’m not. He has a weird fetish with my feet: he loves to call me different kinds of names, like ‘Samoan Sweetcake’ and ‘Twinkle Toes.’ It goes on from there.
Nia Jax
Sylvia Plath was just a month and a half older than I, and when she committed suicide I was only 30 – and very shocked and sorry. I never knew her personally.

The right to private property meant at the same time the right and duty to be personally concerned about your own well-being, to be personally concerned about your family’s income, to be personally concerned about your future. This is hard work.

Personally, I would never use sexuality or looks as a selling point.

For me, personally, I watch pretty much everything on Netflix, and I watch all the episodes in a row, when I can.

Jerry Lewis

Dolly Parton
I have taken my friends’ bikes for rides, but my parents never allowed me to get one for myself, as they think bikes are unsafe. Personally, though, I love bikes.

Ashton Kutcher
Being a part of success is more important than being personally indispensable.

I personally like hard forks. Particularly, I like the fact that they give users a measure of control, requiring them to opt in to protocol changes. Sure, they can be a little more chaotic if they’re controversial, but that’s the price of freedom.
Vitalik Buterin
I start with actors that I know personally or I know their work, and there are things about their work or their presence or their own personality that make a character, that exaggerates some qualities and suppresses other qualities. It’s always a real collaboration for me.

Being hurt personally triggered a curiosity about how such beliefs are formed.

Tim Tebow
Personally, when I go to Tulum, I prefer to be near the action but not in the midst of it.

I think that’s so strange, because they do know that we’re all actors and we perform things that have not necessarily anything to do with us personally.
Werner Klemperer
I had a hard time publishing my books in the beginning of my career, because editors were afraid what people would think of THEM, personally, if their name was associated with me.
Susie Bright
Personally, I don’t want to do a lot of angel deals in a year. I get approached a lot. I’m becoming less and less polite, which doesn’t seem to be helping. A lot of the things I get pitched on are from people who just want to make money.
Jim McKelvey
I take the world very personally. I take history personally; I want to place myself in the larger context.
Marianne Wiggins
I’ve been through a lot, both personally and professionally, and the album that I started to record two and a half years ago is a different album from the one that exists today. I even changed the album title. First it was ‘All I Want is Everything,’ and now it’s ‘Jumping Trains.’
JoJo
Personally I find there is just as much if not more creativity among game makers as there is among feature filmmakers.

David Slade
One of the commitments that I personally have now is to a diverse approach to buying businesses, and the operation of those businesses.
Julius Erving
Some writers are more natural public performers than others; personally I find it quite strange giving interviews. But everyone has parts of their job that they like more than others. You can’t complain if you get to do what you love doing most of the time, can you?
Monica Ali
I personally have dealt with any adversity in my life with humor. That’s why I told America to ‘Read my hips!’ on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ or was happy to play along with Jason Alexander and Jerry Seinfeld in the great restaurant scene on ‘Seinfeld.’
Marlee Matlin
I don’t happen to have a sense of humor personally, so I don’t know what’s funny about a character… This happens to be a feature of my life generally.
Wallace Shawn
I would like to fly in space. Absolutely. That would be cool. I used to just do personally risky things, but now I’ve got kids and responsibilities, so I can’t be my own test pilot. That wouldn’t be a good idea. But I definitely want to fly as soon as it’s a sensible thing to do.
Elon Musk
I don’t know why everyone feels the pressure to look young. Personally, I hate it. I don’t want to inject Botox and look young forever. It’s living in denial and anything that has an undercurrent of this philosophy is bad for your growth.
Kangana Ran
aut
I used some vivid language that, if I could take it back, I’d take it back. It’s not my intention to be personally critical of the President or of anyone else.

David Morrissey
Most everyone now personally knows someone who is openly homosexual.

I used to go on chat rooms on AOL, back when those things existed, and argue with believers in evolution and argued with them that it was against God’s law to believe in evolution. It was something I believed really personally.

Personally, I’m not afraid of a robot uprising. The benefits far outweigh the threats.

Matthew Lillard
The price I have personally paid for these extra Sisyphean years has been prohibitive.
Caryl Chessman
Personally, I can’t see why it would be any less romantic to find a husband in a nice four-color catalogue than in the average downtown bar at happy hour.
Barbara Ehrenreich
I personally don’t believe in aliens. But, I do believe that there is something out there that is accountable for all these mysterious things that are going on: I think it is a spiritual thing not a material thing.
J. T. Walsh
As for ABC you can’t take it personally. We had three good years.
Sela Ward
Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, has on several occasions talked about transparency as an absolute principle. I don’t personally believe that.

Personally, I’m a real wimp with scary movies. I get so scared.
Keri Russell

L.A. Reid
A weird thing about Gossip that I’ve always said: ‘If I weren’t in this band, I would never listen to it.’ But I would go see it. It’s a band you would go see that you don’t necessarily listen to. We’ve always wanted to do a live album because personally, I think we’re a way better band live than on record.
Beth Ditto
I don’t personally see my work as being dark. What interests me is a balance between light and dark.
Carter Burwell
I wouldn’t want to criticise someone like Charlotte Church because she has done fantastically well, but personally I’ve always cared about the long term.
Lesley Garrett
I personally believe that the iPod is a frankly corrosive device because it encourages you to surround yourself with your favorites. The whole idea of a playlist is to surround yourself with your favorite things, and the interesting thing is that when you do that, they cease to be your favorites.
Hugh Laurie
I specialise in taking teams of designers, psychologists, usability experts, sociologists and ethnographers into the field. It’s called ‘corporate anthropology,’ but personally I’m more comfortable with ‘design research,’ because I’m not an anthropologist by training.
Jan Chipchase
I come with bad genetics, personally.

I come with bad genetics, personally.
J. B. Pritzker
Moral justification is a powerful disengagement mechanism. Destructive conduct is made personally and socially acceptable by portraying it in the service of moral ends. This is why most appeals against violent means usually fall on deaf ears.
Albert Bandura
Things can be really empty in this world, and I don’t just mean the music world. It can become a very meaningless place if you don’t really understand: ‘who am I? Why am I here? What am I doing?’ To feel fulfilment and have a deeper level of understanding, personally, that is the most important thing.
Alicia Keys
Personally, as a filmmaker, I think you should prepare your audience as to what they can expect.
Sudeep
Personally I discovered that you could go through the academy as a young scholar, come out, and almost immediately have an impact on the academic environment.
Bernice Johnson Reagon

Richard Dawkins
As a frequent rider of the subway myself, I cannot count the number of times I have had to personally intercede in a physical or verbal altercation, whether on the platform or in a subway car.
Eric Adams
I think we have become obsessed with beauty and personally I’m really saddened by the way women mutilate their faces today in search of that.
Halle Berry
I personally do not drink. To drink or not to is one’s own choice. So long as it doesn’t affect others, it is okay.
Rakul Preet Singh
Personally, I would not care for immortality in the least. There is nothing better than oblivion, since in oblivion there is no wish unfulfilled. We had it before we were born yet did not complain. Shall we whine because we know it will return? It is Elysium enough for me, at any rate.
H. P. Lovecraft
I’d love personally… this is not an announcement at all, but I would love to see ‘Fable 2’ on the PC.
Peter Molyneux
I personally do not listen to a lot of music. It helps keep my mind free. I don’t want to sound like someone else from the get-go. I want to express myself and the world in my head.
Victoria Legrand
It could be that all awful dictators are frustrated artists – Mao with his poetry and Mussolini with his monuments. Stalin was once a journalistic hack, and I can personally testify to how frustrated they are. Pol Pot left a very edgy photo collection behind. And Osama seems quite interested in video.
P. J. O’Rourke
Personally, I’d never seen a graphic novel. I knew they existed because friends of mine like Jonathan Ross collect them and some very literate and intelligent people really rate the graphic novel as a form.
Stephen Fry
I personally would rather raise my child in New York. It seems like it would be easier to make sure she or he gets a whole bunch of experience and understanding of the world. But, people in general think it’s easier to raise a kid when you don’t have so much stuff in your face.
Jeremy Sisto
I know that sounds selfish, but you have to look at what it’s doing to you personally – are you frustrated because of the way people perceive you, or are you happy enough about the things you’ve realized about yourself that you can tolerate the way people perceive you?
Shannon Hoon
Shaving my head was a millennium ritual, to not let it pass as just another New Year’s Eve. A lot has happened to me in the last couple of years, personally and spiritually. I wanted to mark it for myself.
Joan Jett
My life has flourished in so many ways both personally and professionally that I can’t ask for a better life.
David Cassidy
Personally, I think wearing a baby chinchilla says, ‘I’m ignorant.’
Eva Mendes
I had always been intrigued by the emotional aspect of adventure gaming-the fact that people get so personally involved.
Roberta Williams
I never write my stories as a wake-up call as such. I simply explore the kinds of situations that I find personally challenging by placing characters into situations that challenge them in similar ways.
Ted Dekker
Me personally, I like to wear as few artificially made products as possible. That stuff affects us, one way or another.
Gbenga Akinnagbe
Personally, I think the best motto for an educational establishment is: ‘Or Would You Rather Be a Mule?’
Terry Pratchett
David Dinkins was a financial disaster personally – and as an administrator. That is what the record shows.

I personally think that if you deny something or if you hide something you’re inadvertently admitting it’s wrong.
Amber Heard
Personally, for my character, I started as the silent but deadly type.
Roman Reigns
Wal-Mart is the biggest distributor of DVDs out there, but personally, I think their manufacturing policies have destroyed our economy, and they don’t pay their employees enough. I have massive problems with them.
Adam McKay
Saddam’s fate should be in the hands of his country men. They were the major victims of his brutal reign and should decide his life, death, or permanent imprisonment. Personally, I would lock him away forever.
Ronnie James Dio
When I say something, I want people to take it to the bank that I mean it and believe in it. It humbles me that companies want me. It’s a challenge to uphold their values and make their product look good. I take that personally.
Tim Tebow
For me, personally, I try to deal on Twitter only in positive.
Jared Dudley
As human beings, we aren’t as individual as we’d like to believe we are. And I think that’s what makes acting possible. Despite the fact that I have not experienced something, I have it in my human capacity to imagine it and to put myself in someone else’s shoes, and to take someone else’s circumstances personally.
Lupita Nyong’o
I think it's my personality to overcome things, learn f

I think it’s my personality to overcome things, learn from them and become stronger, both personally and professionally. To be honest, I welcome those hardships.
Hope Solo
I personally think honestly disclosing rather than hiding one’s subjective values makes for more honest and trustworthy journalism. But no journalism – from the most stylistically ‘objective’ to the most brazenly opinionated – has any real value unless it is grounded in facts, evidence, and verifiable data.
Glenn Greenwald
I happen to be interested in watching a face age. I like faces of women aging so it makes me personally quite sad. That’s a beautiful gift from God. If people don’t want to see that anymore then I won’t be in anymore movies.
Debra Winger
I haven’t personally in my real life had many people close to me die, but my characters have, and I’ve had to live that as though it’s real. And it can take a really big emotional toll on someone.
Nina Dobrev
I don’t personally consider myself Dr. Doom. I call myself Dr. Realist, even though it’s less exciting and more boring than being called Dr. Doom. If you are consistently saying ‘the world is going to end,’ who is going to listen to you?
Nouriel Roubini
My wife can see always how a part affects me personally because she has to live with it.
Cillian Murphy
Truth is a pain which will not stop. And the truth of this world is to die. You must choose: either dying or lying. Personally, I have never been able to kill myself.
Louis-Ferdinand Celine
Whether one is Marian or Charismatic or both, or prays in one or more of the many other ways open to us, it is all a flow of love, if the heart is truly speaking to and listening to the Holy Trinity. Personally, I pray the Divine Mercy chaplet every day. We pray the Rosary every day in our family.
Michael O’Brien
While many of us never knew Ronald Reagan personally, we felt close to him because we shared his lighthearted sense of humor, admired his uncommon virtue, and were moved by his remarkable wisdom.
Randy Forbes
This ‘bubbly’ word, I am personally going to take it up as an agenda to ban it. Colas are bubbly. Champagne is bubbly. I am not bubbly!
Parineeti Chopra
I think it was probably down to the fact that we weren’t together personally as a band. We weren’t pulling in the same direction. I always feel if you’re having a good time in the studio it actually comes across on the tape and that was a bit of a miserable album for us.
Roy Wood
Netanyahu personally is leading the campaign against the Arabs.
Ayman Odeh
I personally think intellectual property is an oxymoron. Physical objects have a completely different natural economy than intellectual goods. It’s a tricky thing to try to own something that remains in your possession even after you give it to many others.
John Perry Barlow
I was very pleased with the way that the show ended creatively and personally. It just feels like we’ve completed the piece. And now to be able to step back a little bit and look at it from beginning to end, I feel good about the complete story that is ‘Battlestar Galactica.’
Ronald D. Moore
Personally I feel, for me, it’s tough to do Botox – but it’s also tough not to! Sometimes, I think I need the help. Whatever anyone else chooses is fine with me – no judgment.
Naomi Watts
Ever the blameless narcissist, Trump always insists that the buck stops wherever convenient – for him, personally.
George T. Conway III
Personally, I don’t like the term ‘success.’ It’s too arbitrary and too relative a thing. It’s usually someone else’s definition, not yours.
Ichiro Suzuki
Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Don Miguel Ruiz
I’ve personally reached the point where the sound of MP3s are so uncompelling, because so much is lost in translation.
Beck
Well I think if you really go out with someone for quite a long time you do get to know each other very, very well, you go through the good times, you go through the bad times. You know both personally, but also within a relationship as well.
Kate Middleton
I think that you can take things personally or get hurt feelings as a result of something not working out just because your psyche said it should or you deserve it, or whatever it is.
Michael Shanks
I personally don’t like to go see romantic comedies. But people do want to see them, and they seem to want to see me in them.
Matthew McConaughey
I come personally from a broken family, divorced very early in my childhood, a family with its own share of troubles, so I think that was very influential in both me believing that someday I would consistently devote myself to my own family that I created, but I think it also really affects my view of the world.
Bill de Blasio
I personally think that you have to get lost to find something really worthwhile, at least sometimes.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I worked with practically everybody in the business in all of the years in NBC, but I worked personally many years with people like Crosby and Sinatra, so of course that was a great ground school for me.
Skitch Henderson
An empowered organisation is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organisational success.
Stephen Covey
Whether we knew many who died on September 11 or personally knew none, we all lost something on that day. Innocence. Security. A trust that our homeland would always be safe.
Bob Taft
I’ve had a lot of voices tell me what I should be making. Personally, I would much rather live and die by my own hand. If my stuff sucks, then at least I made it suck. I didn’t allow some person, some old dude in a suit, to make it suck for me.
Zendaya
Personally, I don’t choose any particular religion or symbol or group of words or teachings to define me. That’s between me and the most high. You know, my higher self. The Creator.
Erykah Badu
Women are repeatedly accused of taking things personally. I cannot see any other honest way of taking them.
Marya Mannes
Personally, I love Toronto.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
On nights that I'm feeling a need to stretch personally

On nights that I’m feeling a need to stretch personally and artistically, I tend to put together outfits that are very quirky, mismatched and over-the-top eclectic.
Esperanza Spalding
I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and the U.K. as Mint is expanding globally, and I’m personally doing much of the research and business deals to make them happen.
Aaron Patzer
I don’t go around lecturing people and telling them they shouldn’t eat meat. I just don’t think that’s terribly effective. I just try to tell people how I have personally benefitted from the vegan lifestyle.
Steve-O
Being funny is my biggest differentiator, and I think I’d be a fool not to use that, and there’s nothing I enjoy personally more than making a human being laugh. But then, I also think I have a serious side to me.
Lil Dicky
But for me, personally, I didn’t have any ambitions to become an actor. I’m interested in getting behind the camera.
Danny McBride
I personally think skateboarding is harder because it has so many moving parts. With snowboarding, your feet are strapped to your board.
Shaun White
Personally, I’ve found one of the more stimulating ways of playing in recent times has been to kind of move outside the free improvised area and work with people who are probably improvisers but they have a particular way of working.
Derek Bailey
I’m not saying no to anything, at least as far as reading scripts. I don’t care if it’s television or films but, personally, I would say I’d like to establish myself more in film.
Michael B. Jordan
Personally, just as an actor, I love accents; they’re fun.
Carla Gugino
But to personally satisfy my own adrenalin needs, I’ve been racing cars a little bit, which has been fun.
Picabo Street
‘Blues Clues’ has been incredibly good to me, and I’ve been working so hard on it for so long that I take it very personally. I wouldn’t want to do anything to jeopardize what so many kids love. So there’s a lot of responsibility there.
Steve Burns
Personally, I, Mindy Kaling want to spend like 80 percent of my life hanging out with women.
Mindy Kaling
The feeling of not belonging, of not being entirely worthy, of being sometimes hostage to your own sensibilities. Those things speak to me very personally.
Anthony Minghella
You go through tough times. What I personally believe in is you should forget the stats. But also, it pushes you to see the areas where you have to work on to be a consistent team.
MS Dhoni
Yes, but personally I was never a big acid head.
Bill Griffith
I like things that are hand made – but personally for a man, I’m not interested in fashion that evolves with time. I like things to be the same. For a woman I think it’s fantastic to have things that are different – it’s like a flower where every season there’s some new exotic bloom.
Roman Coppola
Usually, when I do a soundtrack, the music from the movie doesn’t have anything to do with me personally. It’s music to enhance to the film. My own stuff is more introspective and about what’s on going in my head.
Stanley Clarke
Now personally, I think the president should golf every day and never have a press conference. I want the leader of the free world to be as stress-free as possible. And if golf helps fade the psychic heat from the job, by all means tee it up often, Mr. President.
Mark McKinnon
I think paranormal experiences are very personal, again, if they are that. Yes, sometimes I’ve felt that some things I would personally believe enough for me to take action on it… like, you know, I felt something happen in a hotel once that made me never stay there again.
Andrea Corr
Having personally watched the Voting Rights Act being signed into law that August day, I can’t begin to imagine how we could have all been so wrong in believing that more Americans would vote once they were all truly free to do so.
Andrew Young
There are some artists that don’t like working with other females, which is fine. They have their own thing. I personally love being surrounded by other females.
Bonnie McKee
Personally I find the democratic chaos of the Internet fascinating, and for the most part really benign.
Moby
You can’t take people’s opinions personally. Usually what people say about it is a reflection of them own issues.
Terrence J
Some bitcoin users see the hard fork as in some ways violating their most fundamental values. I personally think these fundamental values, pushed to such extremes, are silly.
Vitalik Buterin
My Cleveland years were both scientifically and personally most rewarding. My wife Judy was able to rejoin me in our research and my research group grew rapidly.
George Andrew Olah
Whatever feminists may say about their only advocating choices, everyone knows the truth: Feminism regards work outside the home as more elevating, honorable, and personally productive than full-time mothering and making a home.
Dennis Prager
I like stories that are not normal, everyday lives. I don’t personally seek them out, but they find me.
Katherine Moennig
We worked personally with a lot of great VCs. They just work incredibly hard at supporting entrepreneurs and their companies.
Marc Andreessen
I personally think if something’s not a challenge, there’s no point doing it, because you’re not gonna learn much.
Tom Holland
Personally, I was never the cool kid. I was always sort of a bookworm.
Zac Efron
I think you always learn something in every character you play onstage, either personally or creatively.
Jared Harris
I have a million dollars in the stock market, because i

I have a million dollars in the stock market, because if I lose a million dollars, I don’t personally care.
Suze Orman
I’m not really one of those people who goes and writes some big back story and agonizes over characters. I think you kind of can get it. For me personally, it’s just kind of more instinctive. But I don’t have kind of an acting background. I fell into it accidentally.
Rose McGowan
Being truthful is a necessity because when I’m not being truthful it takes a toll on me. I don’t have any room for it in my life. I don’t have an across-the-board opinion on honesty in relationships. But for me, personally, it’s paramount.
Dax Shepard
I, personally, have found reading a continual support to writing.
Margaret Mahy
Immigration reform doesn’t impact me personally; nothing my foundation works on does. But the truth is I have a long history of ties to Latin America. Some of my best friends are in Latin America.
Howard Graham Buffett
I don’t personally believe that villains exist. Villains are just a way of saying that somebody has an opposing conviction.
Ryan Reynolds
I have no love for those who consider themselves ‘good people’ but stand idly by as the world crumbles around them. It’s not enough to personally not do damage. If you’re present as someone else destroys what’s around you and you do nothing, you helped them.
Luvvie Ajayi
Personally I’m very happy to be behind the scenes. I like collaboration, I like working with directors.
Mark Mothersbaugh
I have nothing against undertakers personally. It’s just that I wouldn’t want one to bury my sister.
Jessica Mitford
I personally don’t think of myself as either an optimist or a pessimist.
Nick Bostrom
I think books, novels and autobiographies have a power to touch people far more personally than films do, so there’s a bit more of a responsibility when you then dramatise it.
Robert Sheehan
Personally, I don’t want to own a dog that inspires fear. I choose my dogs carefully, have their temperaments observed and evaluated, train and socialize them day after day. Yet I know any dog can be unpredictable.
Jon Katz
I don’t have a favorite author; I have favorite books. ‘Moby Dick’ is a favorite book, but Melville was a drunk who beat his wife. ‘Moveable Feast’ by Hemingway, but I would not like him personally. He was a stupid macho person who believed in shooting animals for fun, but that book was incredible!
Gary Paulsen
Of course it’s difficult to turn anything down when Mike Nichols calls you personally.
Andrea Martin
When I lose, I take it very personally.
Jennie Finch
I have met Jackie Chan about 6 times up ’til now… and even though many people think we are natural enemies, I personally think he is a cool bloke and would honestly love to work with him in a film one time – that would a well brilliant movie!
Jet Li
I have personally seen statements that were longer than some books I have read.
Wendell H. Ford
I was definitely incredibly close to my dad, in a way that was all-encompassing. I am close to my mum, too, but there were areas that she and I did not share. So his loss to me was huge, personally and professionally. He believed in me, not just as a father, but as a director, and that always meant a lot.
Natasha Richardson
I personally don’t think ginger men have a habit of being attractive. We have to make ourselves seem attractive by doing stuff.
Ed Sheeran
But quite honestly, personally, I was much more concerned – I mean, there’s not much I can do about my appearance obviously other than spending four hours in hair and makeup.
Diane Kruger
If you’ve developed an ideology that what’s good for you personally also happens to be good for everyone else, that’s quite wonderful because there’s no moral tension.
Chrystia Freeland
As for kids who are struggling personally, ignore the bullies! Who cares what they think? A lot of the time, they’re not thinking, so you shouldn’t take their words to heart. Ignore, ignore, ignore, and keep pushing forward.
Nolan Gould
Personally, I really enjoy sci-fi. I watch it, I read comic books, and I play video games. I love this kind of world, so to be able to work in it is a dream. I enjoy it. It’s all good.
Aaron Ashmore
I personally think we developed language because of our deep inner need to complain.
Jane Wagner
Personally, I am stuck with one foot in the past and one foot in the present.
Anthony Kiedis
I personally do not write highbrow music. If I do, it’s by accident.
Gordon Getty
I look at modern life and I see people not taking responsibility for their lives. The temptation to blame, to find external causes to one’s own issues is something that is particularly modern. I know that personally I find that sense of responsibility interesting.
Edward Zwick
I’m inspired every day by the great captains of industry and enlightened entrepreneurs like my great-great-grandfather and founder of Fiat, Giovanni Agnelli, who personally knew all his workers and gave so much to this country, or Adriano Olivetti, unique and innovative in every way.
Lapo Elkann
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 like to entertain the crowd. Personally I like to entertain my team-mates first, but when the crowd gets going, it is amazing.
AB de Villiers
For me, personally, the value of a film is not determined by a review, but the health of the film is.
Bennett Miller
Personally, I like films that make me a little bit unco

Personally, I like films that make me a little bit uncomfortable because I think you’re uncomfortable when something is real.
Alice Englert
I don’t want to discredit people’s individuality, but I think people are pretty much the same. People are very similar. If you have a good enough imagination then you can feel things that you personally have never done before. That’s acting.
Kristen Stewart
Personally I just want to win a championship.
Allen Iverson
Now, personally, I like a car with some sort of character.
Richard Hammond
Personally I’m always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.
Winston Churchill
Personally, I don’t know what I’d do without films.
Nico Mirallegro
I have not been part of an active counterculture movement, as it is not the approach that I have personally pursued to create a qualitatively beneficial and meaningful impact on society. Perhaps, my belief is along the old saying that ‘it is always better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.’
Al Seckel
Creating fantasy is a very personal thing, but you can’t take the process too personally.
Joseph Barbera
For example, I tend to personally reward myself for specific acts of exceptional discipline.
Robert Vaughn
I want to know what it’s like to play in a Super Bowl and win one. My career will be great without it. But, personally, selfishly, I want to know what it feels like.
Dan Marino
Journalism: A profession whose business is to explain to others what it personally does not understand.
Lord Northcliffe
They’ve said I’m gay, they’ve said everyone is gay. I personally don’t believe in doing huge lawsuits about that stuff. Tom does. That’s what he wants to do, that’s what he’s going to do. You do not tell Tom what to do. He is a force to be reckoned with.
Nicole Kidman
Personally, I find it romantic not to be with someone all the time; you don’t get used to someone or take them for granted.
Monica Bellucci
Personally, I find looking at all of the supporting materials and bring it all back to me – the people I worked with, the experience of working on a project – makes it come alive again. So, I try to put those experiences into my commentary for the viewers.
Michael Mann
The congressmen and senators used to go have a drink in D.C. They would disagree all day long, but they would find that time to sit down and learn about each other personally. I think that’s totally wiped out; I don’t think it really exists anymore.
Zach Galifianakis
I enjoyed in every way my 12 years of playing Archie, and I wasn’t personally sad about finishing a long job.
Carroll O’Connor
Although the evidence at this trial shows that Charles Manson was the leader of the conspiracy to commit these murders, there is no evidence that he actually personally killed any of the seven victims in this case.
Vincent Bugliosi
I don’t personally feel that I have to save democracy and journalism.
Katharine Weymouth
You have to support the government, not to me personally; I do not want anyone cultivating loyalty to me. I don’t like that.
Rodrigo Duterte
My mother and father taught me about black excellence and dynasty. They experienced racism personally, and when something like that happens to you and not around you, you develop a different perception than someone who has never experienced racism a day in their lives.
Lizzo
For myself, personally, I am never really aware of timing or anything because I am passionate about what I do, so I have found that if you really love what you do, then time flies.
Colm Wilkinson
Let’s get with it, guys: You don’t need to hear a Ministry song to get political. You should be political on your own. We’re just a side project to society. So do I care what people think about me personally? No. I just do what I do.
Al Jourgensen
I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.
Margaret Thatcher
I’ve always been the DJ or the bass player or the drummer, somebody in the background. I don’t think anybody who knows me personally would say that I’m particularly shy or introverted, but I’m definitely not like Mr. Attention.
Mayer Hawthorne
Personally, I would love to see every gun on the planet disappear.
Jean Hanff Korelitz
Personally, I’ve realized that the tradition I thought of as too safe, too pretty, and too conventional is the space where women have been able to gain some practical ground. The area of music where we thought the status quo was really being upset – specifically hard rock – has actually remained the most male-dominated.
Ann Powers
There’s a perennial debate about whether the propagandistic tripe produced by establishment media outlets is shaped more by evil or by stupidity. Personally, I think it’s both: a healthy dose of each is needed. The system design is malicious, while those who serve as its public face are generally vacant.
Glenn Greenwald
I don’t know the vast majority of you personally, and it may sound kind of corny, but I really feel as if we’ve become friends through the years. And you’ve been with me during a lot of good times and some very difficult ones. I can’t tell you how grateful I am.
Katie Couric
Well I don’t know that I’m okay any more than anyone else is okay, I lead a happy life and a very full one – I have a happy marriage and my kids are all cheerful, and no one is finding fault with me, personally.
L. Ron Hubbard
Personally, I prefer the dark side.
Daniel Radcliffe
I’m not critic-proof, and I still take it personally, but I take it less personally now.
Gordon Ramsay
Personally speaking, growing up as a gay man before it

Personally speaking, growing up as a gay man before it was as socially acceptable as it is now, I knew what it was to feel different, to feel alienated and to feel not like everyone else. But the very same thing that made me monstrous to some people also empowered me and made me who I was.
John Logan
But as much as I am personally proud for winning five championships, I’m equally proud just being part of a women’s division that has gotten so much better with all these great athletes here.
Trish Stratus
Personally, I am obsessed with my mom, and I would do literally anything for her.
Alexa Von Tobel
I’ve never been nostalgic, personally or politically – if the past was so great, how come it’s history?
Julie Burchill
Personally, I have had sometimes moments where I thought my idea behind the idea of a collection – the concept maybe – something that we don’t see at the end on the catwalk, I think the way it was, the genesis in my mind, was probably artistic, an artistic approach.
Olivier Theyskens
Personally, I like two types of men – domestic and foreign.
Mae West
Me personally, I’m a guy who it took a long time to figure out what I’m supposed to be doing. I relate to a lot of that finding oneself a little later in the game, or being thrown a curve later in the game.
Kurt Sutter
For me personally, I’m mostly focused on writing and acting right now.
Ben Savage
Child abuse is a heinous and personally damaging crime; it is therefore incumbent on the Church to treat such matters with the utmost seriousness.
John Sentamu
When I played Bobby Fischer, my opponent fought against organizations – the television producers and the match organizers. But he never fought against me personally. I lost to Bobby before the match because he was already stronger than I. He won normally.
Boris Spassky
This is our lance. See, you’re making me laugh about this now, because there have been a few jokes on the set about what they actually look like. But, see, I personally think they’d be a great toy. So… just batteries aren’t included.
Kevin Sorbo
I ran track in high school. I was a fragile young man, personally and physically. I tried football. That didn’t work out; I broke my collarbone. But I always loved running.
Danny Pudi
I’ve struggled for confidence and had great doubts about myself. But, personally, I’m not riddled with guilt.
Charlie Cox
There is nothing I’ve been through in my life that I regret, or that I would go back and change. I feel like everything that happened – personally and professionally – I went through for a reason, and I learned from those things.
Sheryl Swoopes
Personally, I’ve never been attracted to danger. It’s not my sort of thing. I am more attracted to pubs and cafes. The known, safe and comfortable world.
Bill Bryson
I enjoyed showing a bit more leg in the last few stories. It was good fun, but it can be quite sexist. But it doesn’t worry me personally all that much.
Sarah Sutton
I am personally interested in more than just business schools. However, life has been good to me, and it’s been good to me through a business career. I think the chance to help strengthen the foundation of young people going into business, as I did, just appeals to me.
Gerry Schwartz
People aren’t going to talk about it except me and that is communication and the visits I have personally had in our meetings with our store managers saying if you do these things you will be terminated, period.
Lee Scott
And yet because of my attempt at sincerity I have been condemned, hooted at, reviled; filthy rumors have been circulated about me, not about my characterizations but about me personally, my private self.
Erich von Stroheim
I personally do not believe ‘Premam’ has influenced anyone in any way; it has just portrayed characters and is one man’s story where he falls in love with his teacher, and I don’t believe people would use this as a reason to imitate it.
Sai Pallavi
I’ve personally demanded that tyrants let their people go. I’ve tried to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, protect the elderly and infirm, and defend the needy from the aggressively greedy. I’ve led a blessed life. What a kick for a kid from the projects.
Gary Ackerman
This life is not man’s own show; if he becomes personally and emotionally involved in the very complicated cosmic drama, he reaps inevitable suffering for having distorted the divine ‘plot.’
Paramahansa Yogananda
People think that they just want movies like Pretty Woman, when really they – at least the ones that I know personally – have been waiting for something that doesn’t completely insult them.
Winona Ryder
I personally hold Blair more responsible for this war than I do George Bush. The reason is, Blair knows better, Blair is not an idiot. What is he doing hanging around this guy?
Michael Moore
Personally, I don’t take holidays; I go on trips. My idea of relaxing is taking a trip that isn’t commissioned. I’ll work just as hard, but without that nagging pressure of fulfilling a commission. Now that’s what I call a holiday.
Martin Parr
Every actor I think has got their own number of takes that they like, you know. Some actors like to go all day, you know on the one scene and some actors want to take two takes. I personally like four.
Robert Carlyle
Beijing didn’t go the way I planned and I would have liked to have performed a little bit better personally. After Beijing that is what stuck in my mind. I want a better Olympic finish.
Alicia Sacramone
I personally have gone to photo shoots and see the pictures afterwards, and I don’t look like me because I’m just so airbrushed and so, kind of, fake and almost plastic-looking, you know?
Jennette McCurdy
I am very much opposed to abortion personally. But I don’t think it is the government’s rule.
Arlen Specter
If, however, the success of a politician is to be measured by the degree in which he is able personally to influence the course of politics, and attach to himself a school of political thought, then Mr. Mill, in the best meaning of the words, has succeeded.
Millicent Fawcett
Due to the fact that I experienced personally the situation of a political prisoner, I have an historical commitment to all those that were or are prisoners just because they expressed their views, their public opinion, their own opinions.
Dilma Rousseff
For me personally, I have a fear of, 'If I stop, I'm go

For me personally, I have a fear of, ‘If I stop, I’m going to die.’ If I stop doing the things that are enriching to me or creatively exciting to me or if I stop creating, then I feel stagnant. If something isn’t growing, it’s dying.
Chris Hardwick
There are a lot of food choices in Kyochon, but I personally recommend the double fried chicken and the Soonsal series – deep-fried, boneless chicken breast strips coated in a special rice batter.
Lee Min-ho
I personally believe the film turns out better when shot in one short schedule, plus it doesn’t stress the actors.
Shah Rukh Khan
Personally, I don’t even read bummer news stories about the environment because it makes me feel helpless to fix anything and reminds me that the general population doesn’t treat these issues as an important part of our political life.
Rachel Dratch
When I do an interview, when I appear on camera, I want to be the same person as the one you meet personally and say, ‘He is really the same person I saw on television.’
Kaka
We rushed into renewable energy without any thought. The schemes are largely hopelessly inefficient and unpleasant. I personally can’t stand windmills at any price.
James Lovelock
It takes a little work to be a vegan, but now it’s really possible to have tasty stuff and it’s better for you. I say the best test is go as far as you can and see how you feel. Personally, I feel great.
Grace Slick
I personally have said many times I’d be a hundred percent in equities. That fits my risk profile and my views of the world, though obviously it’s not appropriate for everyone. Most investors need a more diversified portfolio.
Laurence D. Fink
The way I personally work is I like to write what I know, what I feel, and also where I am.
David E. Kelley
I think that lens flares can work really well under certain circumstances. Personally, I am trying to get rid of them most of the time. I don’t like artifacts that draw attention to the surface of the image.
Roger Deakins
Personally, I feel like there should be some sort of cap on the quads, but we should still be pushing it to a certain number.
Nathan Chen
For most of the history of our species we were helpless to understand how nature works. We took every storm, drought, illness and comet personally. We created myths and spirits in an attempt to explain the patterns of nature.
Ann Druyan
Everything that I have professionally, and so much of what I have personally, is because of this great, fair city, and to see it being drowned like this is almost unbearable.
Harry Connick, Jr.
I’ve personally backed off from direct political involvement.
Pat Robertson
People still take it really personally. They come up to me at breakfast places like, ‘When are you growing your hair back?’
Keri Russell
Personally, I just think rap music is the best thing out there, period. If you look at my deck in my car radio, you’re always going to find a hip-hop tape; that’s all I buy, that’s all I live, that’s all I listen to, that’s all I love.
Eminem
And you realise you’re doing a public service in making people happy – as a musician you can give people something a doctor, a lawyer, a politician cannot give them that. It’s not scientific. It’s spiritual – a good feeling. And although you don’t know them personally, the audience are like your friends.
Billy Ocean
There is no better test of character than when you’re tossed into crisis. That’s when we see one’s true colors shine through. So I try my best to make my characters personally involved in the plot, in a way that stresses them and tests them.
Tess Gerritsen
Right and wrong becomes more difficult for each of us as we grow older, because the older we get the more we know personally about our own human frailties.
Blanche Lincoln
I have my husband and children near me in Rome, and I feel this is where we are temporarily belonging. But personally, all my life, I have felt the absence of a sense of history.
Jhumpa Lahiri
Teachers are sort of faced with a thankless task, because no matter how good they are, unless they find a way to personally rationalize the rewards of their effort, nobody else is really going to do it for them en masse.
Julius Erving
What really turns me on about technology is not just the ability to get more songs on MP3 players. The revolution – this revolution – is much bigger than that. I hope, I believe. What turns me on about the digital age, what excites me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing.
Bono
I take every role seriously. Personally, I never look at any role as Michael White. I’ve done that my entire life.
Michael Jai White
I still believe that a plant-based diet has tremendous health benefits, but I have incorporated more animal protein into my diet. I found that my body personally got to a point where I needed something more.
Bob Harper
No one told me I had to make something that would sell, but I personally want everyone to like my music.
Utada Hikaru
Everything I’ve done has been personally fun, important, and meaningful to me.
Ashley Judd
I don’t know about changing my mind regarding The One-Man Band. I’ve always personally found him incredibly entertaining, which is one of the reasons why, in the past, I surrounded myself with guys like him. I think he’s a complete buffoon, don’t get me wrong, but personally, I find him very funny.
Wade Barrett
For me personally, everything is on a kiss.
Anna Friel
I personally feel like if I were to talk to myself when I was a trainee I’d like to tell myself that every minute of me dreaming and enjoying what I do is all investment in what I’m doing for the future.
Rose
Personally, I have nothing against work, particularly when performed, quietly and unobtrusively, by someone else. I just don’t happen to think it’s an appropriate subject for an ‘ethic.’
Barbara Ehrenreich
There’s a rebirth that goes on with us continuously as human beings. I don’t understand, personally, how you can be bored. I can understand how you can be depressed, but I just don’t understand boredom.
Dustin Hoffman
Every girl likes to just rock out when they put music o

Every girl likes to just rock out when they put music on in their room – I learned that personally when fans would tell us how much they loved to make up their own dances to Cheetah Girls songs.
Sabrina Bryan
I, Maggie, personally cannot tell you that you’re going to save the planet. But what I do know is that we can draw a line to an issue that can conserve what we already have and what’s left in a way that we can actually breathe the air, drink the water, actually grow things in soil – that matters in a real, practical way.
Maggie Q
Personally, I don’t wear fur.
Karl Lagerfeld
I was mostly interested in it as a theatrical film. Personally, I am not so interested in television, simply because I don’t watch television myself. I’m into movies.
Bille August
I personally believe this Agency has always been very dedicated and has always worked as hard as it possibly can to do things as safely and as effectively as possible.
Mark Kelly
For me personally, I think I just enjoy movies about werewolves or vampires because it’s not like an everyday thing. It’s something you can really escape into.
Agnes Bruckner
You feel different every day of your life. You just have to create your own space to survive, personally and professionally.
Jerry Cantrell
Personally, my interests are ancient history and ancient civilizations. In my own life, I’d like to go to places like Easter Island.
Nicolas Cage
Every man must have the right fearlessly to think independently and express his opinion about what he knows, what he has personally thought about and experienced, and not merely to express with slightly different variations the opinion which has been inculcated in him.
Mstislav Rostropovich
I personally go to the airport looking like a homeless person, because I think people will leave me alone. But I dress myself with my luggage – all my luggage matches.
Andre Leon Talley
Life as an actor has toughened me up, and I’ve learned that you shouldn’t take things too personally. Someone once said that to do this job you need talent, luck and a thick skin – which is so true.
Marc Warren
What we make testifies who we are. People can sense care and can sense carelessness. This relates to respect for each other and carelessness is personally offensive.
Jonathan Ive
The necessity to constantly turn in an excellent performance, to be absolutely wedded to this dedication and this ideal means that as a child you’re going to pay for it personally.
Twyla Tharp
The Church is presided over personally by Jesus Christ.
Richard G. Scott
My feeling was, you plant some seeds. If they grow, great; if they don’t, you don’t take it personally. Not my problem; I just kept planting. Just like a farmer.
Hank Haney
I just personally decided I was going to be the first woman fighter pilot.
Martha McSally
I personally believe that the office of the President of India is not to be sought. It is to be offered.
Pranab Mukherjee
The fact is we can only love what we know personally. And we cannot know much. In public affairs, in the rebuilding of civilization, something less dramatic and emotional is needed, namely tolerance.
E. M. Forster
Clearly you need a new team to go out to bat on your behalf; to fight for your rights and to report back to you personally and to the leadership of the IFP.
Mangosuthu Buthelezi
Every time I’d get a critique or some redirection, I’d always just take it very personally. Now I have no problem with it.
Jessica Alba
I have personally believed in every product I have ever advertised.
Kate Smith
Who isn’t a fan of Jeff Bridges? And he is such a unique character. I can’t think of anybody who’s quite like him. He was a lot of fun to be around, just personally.
Marisa Miller
As a songwriter, it’s very hard to listen to music that’s not coming from the heart and soul, personally.
Jake Bugg
Personally, I’d be really glad to have a national conversation about whether to outlaw most forms of birth control. For once, the kids and their grandparents would find themselves on the same side.
Gail Collins
I work really hard at these books, and when colleagues write nasty reviews of them, I take it very personally.
Richard Ford
Personally, I look forward to better tools for analyzing C++ source code.
Bjarne Stroustrup
Personally, I love theater; that’s where I started.
Valerie Azlynn
Personally, I enjoy a bowl of brown rice for breakfast most of the time.
Kathy Freston
I personally like to do independent films.
Famke Janssen
This was all the inspiration it took: We put 100 percent of ourselves in the lines. We personally take care of everything, from fulfillment to answering the mail.
Connie Sellecca
I wouldn’t include a piece in my collection that I wouldn’t wear personally.
Lauren Conrad
For me, the moral difficulties lie in the continual pre

For me, the moral difficulties lie in the continual pressure brought to bear on my friends and immediate family, pressure which is not directed against me personally but which at the same time is all around me.
Andrei Sakharov
Personally, I believe that playing the lead antagonist is always better than a character artiste, whose weightage isn’t much.
Abhimanyu Singh
I personally don’t believe we ought to be raising taxes or cutting spending, either one, until we get this economy off the ground. I’ll pay more, but it won’t solve the problem.
William J. Clinton
Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. In all of his teachings about multiple things – he never said that gay people should be condemned. I personally think it is very fine for gay people to be married in civil ceremonies.
Jimmy Carter
I find more interesting roles for women in period pieces. I do personally like watching period films; I think you can really get lost in the fantasy of them.
Keira Knightley
Everyone knows in the industry that when these great roles come up, every two years, there’s a huge number of people up for them. I’m not one of those top five females that can personally finance any film.
Joely Richardson
The importance of ‘Dream School’ is monumental. Helping to inspire these students to reach their potential is personally gratifying.
Curtis Jackson
When the honour is given to that scientist personally the happiness is sweet indeed. Science is, on the whole, an informal activity, a life of shirt sleeves and coffee served in beakers.
George Porter
I am a liberated woman. And I do believe if a woman does equal work she should be paid equal money. But personally I am feminine and I do like male authority to lean on.
Julie Andrews
Personally, I’m very classic. If I’m going to wear a suit, it’s going to be classic, black, and fit very well. There’s nothing like it.
Michael Pitt
Personally, I don’t think it is acceptable to manipulate the human germline for the purpose of changing some genetic traits that will be transmitted over generations.
Emmanuelle Charpentier
Studying acting has been personally enriching because it has taught me to take the time to imagine what someone else’s life experience might be like. To look deeply at how our pasts and the circumstances of our early childhoods mold us as people.
Aja Naomi King
The rabbis will find in me personally someone who cares about their future and welfare.
Ephraim Mirvis
For me, personally, getting a podium is not as important as feeling super comfortable on my skiing.
Julia Mancuso
Up until 1995, I still had a day job that I hated. I was still personally involved in things in the 90s.
Ted Rall
Personally, I don’t think of myself as a style icon. It’s basically because the public loves me so much.
Atif Aslam
I think my dad is definitely my biggest role model, personally, just in my day-to-day life.
Michael B. Jordan
Before I got divorced, I was personally unfamiliar with trial, or at least trial of serious, heart-wrenching proportions. I figured that life went smoothly if you tried hard, and if you messed up, or things weren’t working out, you just tried harder.
Kristin Armstrong
Personally, I had a great education. My mum was a trained teacher, a Montessori teacher, and I know that I could not have written ‘Eragon’ if I had gone into a public school system because I would have just been too busy attending classes and doing homework – I wouldn’t have had the time to write.
Christopher Paolini
I’ve always found that I personally love to observe things, and I’m good at observing things.
Jamie Johnson
I don’t have a problem being labeled a sex symbol, though I personally don’t feel very sexy about myself.
John Abraham
I think the black community is no different from any other community. We need to take responsibility for how we live together. We need to be personally responsible for keeping our streets clean, our schools safe, and our houses peaceful.
Pearl Cleage
That is someone who follows the teachings of the nonviolent Jesus and takes the gospel personally, and then pays the price. I fall into that category.
Martin Sheen
The notion that before you even set out to go to Thailand, you say, ‘I’m not interested,’ or you’re unwilling to try things that people take so personally and are so proud of and so generous with, I don’t understand that, and I think it’s rude. You’re at Grandma’s house, you eat what Grandma serves you.
Anthony Bourdain
Personally, I’ve made myself a very small window of what I enjoy in this business, which is I love being a big part of the storytelling process.
Bradley Cooper
I find it personally distracting when kids are constantly texting, but they can be texting something that is just benign and just fine.
Mike DeWine
On the mountains mistakes are fatal. In politics, mistakes are wounding emotionally, but you recover. Personally, wilderness helps me get back in touch with natural rhythms, helps me reflect and, in the process, restore my creativity.
Mark Udall
I have not personally suffered from the deprivations, the bitterness and sorrow which bring so many men and women to a realisation of social injustice.
Emmeline Pankhurst
Think about the comfortable feeling you have as you open your front door. That’s but a hint of what we’ll feel some day on arriving at the place our Father has lovingly and personally prepared for us in heaven. We will finally – and permanently – be ‘at home’ in a way that defies description.
Charles Stanley
We may be personally defeated, but our principles never!
William Lloyd Garrison
I personally hate psychiatrists. When I was a kid, I saw quite a few of them, and they ruin everything.
Kane
And me, myself personally, in order for there to be any

And me, myself personally, in order for there to be any kind of longevity there’s gotta be some history.
Edwin Starr
I personally tend to believe that there is a right to migration, the same way there’s a right to love whom you like and to believe what you believe and to say what you want to say.
Mohsin Hamid
I personally tend to be drawn to stories that aren’t paid much attention to, or stories that aren’t on people’s radar.
Anderson Cooper
I think that for me, personally, a lot of my choices have been to do with my own issues of not feeling safe as a child and feeling a sense of stability.
Mariah Carey
I rarely meet a politician that I don’t like personally. They are generally well endowed with charm. Therein lies the danger.
P. J. O’Rourke
I believe in collaboration. I think that is the most entertaining and effective way to write for me, personally.
Jonah Hill
I understand blackness from the inside out. What my goal is, is to allow the world to see the humanity that I know personally to be the truth.
Kehinde Wiley
Personally I support 14,000 kids in Zambia – I feed and clothe them – but I don’t hold press conferences about it. I don’t do it so you’ll think what a nice person I am; it’s private.
Gene Simmons
Let me just say that while I personally am very fond of John Boehner, his record of predicting what would happen if certain policies, economic policies were instituted is abysmal, okay?
Jay Carney
Me personally, I think all the barriers that are put up between genres are so easily broken. People just love music that moves them.
Jason Derulo
People often ask me if fantasy is about escapism, and I personally don’t think it is.
Lauren Schmidt Hissrich
I don’t know if I particularly want to be remembered for anything. I personally do not think I’m a great gift to the world. I’ve been very fortunate.
Edmund Hillary
I’ve seen a lot of women give up after they’ve had three or four bad gigs in a row. It’s very difficult to learn not to take nasty heckles personally.
Jo Brand
I was raised an Episcopalian. And I did not and I don’t believe that anyone is looking out for me personally.
Joan Didion
‘Free’ is more of that ‘familiarity breeds contempt’ kind of thing. It’s about saying ‘Wait, I’m longing for something more than I have and I don’t know what it is that I want, but I know I want it.’ It has nothing to do with what I’m going through, personally.
Jon Crosby
Personally, what goes beyond sport, you have to put to one side. You need the best to win trophies.
Karim Benzema
Junk food was never allowed at home, and personally too, there is no love for aerated drinks.
Ananya Birla
An employee who’s one of hundreds, rather than one of a few, is unlikely to feel personally responsible for helping the organization adapt and change.
Gary Hamel
I think forgiveness is overrated, personally, because some things people do are unforgivable.
Charlamagne tha God
I have never personally seen a hand transplant that is more useful than a prosthesis.
Joe Murray
He was an embittered atheist, the sort of atheist who does not so much disbelieve in God as personally dislike Him.
George Orwell
I personally have never made a movie in Hollywood, because I don’t want to get up in my own bed and then go to the movie set, and then come home at night to my real life.
Sydney Pollack
I, personally, think there is a really danger of taking food too seriously. Food should be part of the bigger picture.
Anthony Bourdain
Personally, it was hard to see Emmitt in red.
Jerry Jones
Personally, I think young musicians need to learn to play more than one style. Jazz can only enhance the classical side, and classical can only enhance the jazz. I started out playing classical, because you have to have that as a foundation.
Doc Severinsen
I love my last-minute lifestyle because I just sort of don’t have plans, and things kind of happen. Plans make me annoyed a little bit, personally. I’m not the most prompt, on-time person.
Maxwell
I love ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I was so excited to be able to be on this show, just because I personally watch it. Of course, I come from Disney, and I have a lot of young fans, but I do have fans who have grown with me as well.
Ashley Tisdale
What I found personally to be true was that it’s easier to manipulate people rather than technology.
Kevin Mitnick
I personally would not have plastic surgery. What the hell for? It looks ridiculous.
Calvin Klein
Whether it’s making a film or raising my children, personally I’m striving to do the right things and to learn.
Tom Cruise
I’ve never been in a Sweat Lodge. I, myself, personally don’t even like sitting in a sauna, so I’ve never been to a spiritual retreat so I don’t understand the whole process.
Hulk Hogan
My mission in life was to make sure that there were no

My mission in life was to make sure that there were no women walking around who didn’t know me personally.
Lorenzo Lamas
If you really believe in what you’re doing, work hard, take nothing personally and if something blocks one route, find another. Never give up.
Laurie Notaro
If all of us acted in unison as I act individually there would be no wars and no poverty. I have made myself personally responsible for the fate of every human being who has come my way.
Anais Nin
Personally, I need to learn every word on the page before I go in and audition. I have not mastered the skill of holding pages in my hand and acting with pages in my hand. I find that every time I have to look at the page it takes me completely out of the scene.
Freddy Rodriguez
Our Heavenly Father continues to communicate with us through revelation. These revelations are communications of divine directions. They may come to us personally or through the voice of the Lord’s chosen servants, the prophets, seers, and revelators.
L. Lionel Kendrick
I am such a gearhead. In my recording studio, I personally engineer and edit everything on computers.
Tommy Lee
I can’t speak for readers in general, but personally I like to read stories behind which there is some truth, something real and above all, something emotional. I don’t like to read essays on literature; I don’t like to read critical or rational or impersonal or cold disquisitions on subjects.
Laura Esquivel
I’m lucky that I’ve never been bullied personally. There are always going to be kids who are mean and say stuff, but the people that matter to you – the people you love, like your parents, your siblings, and your friends – those are the people you should listen to.
Kendall Jenner
Personally, I don’t go and seek contact with fans, but if they happen to find me somewhere I’ll say hello and speak to them for a while.
Nick Wechsler
After you take time off, it can be really scary to do the harder things you used to do, and I personally hate being scared.
Sunisa Lee
Dedicating your life to something, dedicating time to something, ending up achieving it and maybe doing better than that. Me personally, that would be a Stanley Cup. That’s something I’ve dreamed of my whole life. I think that’s why every hockey player at this level plays.
Jack Hughes
For me personally it is because I get an awful amount of success and I don’t think I deserve it and then I want to sabotage it.
Michael Parkinson
Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask ‘how’, while others of a more curious nature will ask ‘why’. Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.
Man Ray
Having experienced personally and through my family the tragedy of Chile is something always present in my memory. I do not want events of that nature ever to happen again, and I have dedicated an important part of my life to ensuring that and to the reunion of all Chileans.
Michelle Bachelet
Even as a kid, I wore J.C. Penney plain-pocket jeans because they were plain pockets. I didn’t want anybody’s name on my backside. I personally don’t like to wear clothing that is named for somebody or has someone’s likeness all over it.
Matthew McConaughey
For me, personally, I love delicious food when I’m stressed.
Momo Hirai
It’s not okay to just make up false things about someone, especially in their personal life. Professionally, fine! Scrutinize me all you want. I know that I can’t please everyone, but personally, let’s just leave it alone. It’s going too far.
Keri Hilson
I personally don’t believe people really grow. They just learn stuff when they were a kid, and hold on to it, and that affects every relationship they have.
Donald Glover
I’m personally a hopeless romantic. I always have been.
Brett Young
You all know my commitment to the National Health Service. While I am Secretary of State, the NHS will never be fragmented, privatised or undermined. I am personally committed to an NHS which gives equal access, and excellent care.
Andrew Lansley
The nice thing about ‘Futurama’ for me personally was that it was a way to honor some of the traditional ideas in literary science fiction, not so much movie or television science fiction – although we have that too, obviously. Our situation, a workplace comedy, led to all sorts of stuff.
Matt Groening
Through my ongoing work as a UNAIDS Ambassador and with the End AIDS Coalition, I remain personally committed to aligning resources and galvanizing global action and working with amfAR to make AIDS history.
Kenneth Cole
Personally, I read a lot of scripts.
David Yates
I’m a very feminine person, but I have this hard shell, man, and I stay focused and don’t take things personally.
Zoe Saldana
There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect.
Katy Perry
Personally, I have never wished I were a male novelist.
Curtis Sittenfeld
The death of a famous person is different from the death of a loved one, whether it is Michael Jackson, Frank McCourt, or Walter Cronkite. We didn’t know any of them personally, and yet, we experience a sense of loss.
Madeleine M. Kunin
If a kid is old enough to drive a car or buy a gun, isn’t he old enough to be held personally responsible for what he does with his car or gun? Or if he’s a teenager, should someone else be blamed because he isn’t as enlightened as an eighteen-year-old?
Marilyn Manson
I think it is important for me to speak out on social issues. Sometimes people will agree with me. Sometimes people will disagree with me. I don’t take that personally.
Charles Barkley
Although personally I am quite content with existing explosives, I feel we must not stand in the path of improvement.
Winston Churchill
We are comfortable with the fact that we cannot know personally what happened in the world before we were born, yet we are uncomfortable with the notion that we will stop engaging with time at some point in the future.
John Barton
I personally have a background of many days on end of c

I personally have a background of many days on end of confusion, understimulation, overstimulation, and uncomfortableness with the world around me.
Mary Lynn Rajskub
I don’t believe that I personally have been changed by the money. The bad thing is people assume you’ve changed because now you have money.
Shaquille O’Neal
For Debussy the musician and the man I have had profound admiration, but by nature I’m different from him. I think I have always personally followed a direction opposed to that of the symbolism of Debussy.
Maurice Ravel
I had to examine myself very thoroughly to find the right path personally.
Fritz Sauckel
I understand personally that it is frustrating to lose presidential elections by narrow margins.
James Baker
Personally, when a controversy erupts, we decide first whether it requires clarification and, secondly, if it receives notice from authorities and the establishment, we submit responses to their queries.
Amitabh Bachchan
There is an apprenticeship system in jazz. You teach the young ones. So even if the musicians weren’t personally that likable, they felt an obligation to help the younger musicians.
Dave Van Ronk
Personally, my interest in social history ends around 1959, by which time I was an adolescent. I’ve always attributed this to my particular sensibilities. I like formality and elegance, and I’m fundamentally conservative.
Laurie Graham
I’m personally not terribly interested in designing wholesome characters, so I don’t have many variations to offer.
Akira Toriyama
Personally speaking, when everything is boiled down to the marrow, I think the reason Reddit tolerates the creepy forums has to do with money more than anything else.
John Scalzi
I’m a product of the ’60s and the ’70s – slightly rebellious back then in college, not so much in high school, when I got to college I think I was. And I think a lot of where I’m at right now is rooted in a lot of hypocrisy that I recognized back then that I never wanted to be personally.
Joe Maddon
I, personally, am trying to get more and more involved with the gay and lesbian movement, very much so.
A. J. McLean
Well, I’m not sure, but of one thing I am certain: History judges one differently than contemporary observers, and so I think that as time passes, I hope that not me personally so much, but our administration will be seen for some of the things that we accomplished.
David Dinkins
When I became CEO of Xerox 10 years ago, the company’s situation was dire. Debt was mounting, the stock sinking and bankers were calling. People urged me to declare bankruptcy, but I felt personally responsible for tens of thousands of employees.
Anne M. Mulcahy
I guess that in a lot of ways, my writing is more of a character to me than something that I feel personally attached to.
Angel Olsen
Personally, I prefer contemporary films, but the market calls for more period choices, especially since China opened up a cinema market in Hong Kong. There’s a lot of restriction for contemporary films simply because of subject matter.
Donnie Yen
Personally, I don’t like watching violence. I’d much rather see more skin.
Cameron Diaz
I’ve personally never wanted to be ‘the babe’, and refuse to let vanity get in the way of my acting because I don’t see my job as being a beautiful person.
Zooey Deschanel
Personally, I believe in fiction because the stories I like are those with a beginning and an end.
Italo Calvino
I still party all the time and hang out with everyone who drinks, but I just don’t personally, and don’t really have the desire to get blitzed drunk any more.
Slash
I’m personally a moderate and a registered independent, so I’m not strongly Democratic or strongly Republican.
Elon Musk
Taking on a leadership role doesn’t mean that you only have to be personally ambitious.
Jacinda Ardern
I personally love to run outdoor fitness trails. I love the meditative value I get when out alone, challenging myself to run faster and higher.
Laurieann Gibson
I’d personally like to see the Human Rights Act go because I think we have had some problems with it.
Theresa May
Personally, I’ve never done things just for money.
Glenn Turner
Let’s teach boys at school the personally and economically valuable skills of self-expression and emotional intelligence, of mediation and problem-solving.
Naomi Alderman
I’ve never personally criticized anyone else’s music, but I know that the public’s real problem is not the music I make but the perception that I play simple music for money only and for the notoriety and to increase my popularity.
Kenny G
I am a fairly mongrelized person – you know I’ve been a migrant my whole life, and it’s hard to think of myself as any pure one thing. And so I take it, I guess, very personally – this notion that migrants are bad and that mixing is bad and that people from other places are bad.
Mohsin Hamid
Personally, I do not believe that we shall have greater armaments in the future than we have had in the past. On the contrary, I believe there will be a gradual diminution in this respect.
William Watson
You cannot be happy with your family while being personally unhappy with your work. It’s a Catch-22 kind of thing.
Mikhail Baryshnikov
I try personally not to be nostalgic.
Daniel Clowes
I wouldn't do nudity in films. For me, personally... To

I wouldn’t do nudity in films. For me, personally… To act with my clothes on is a performance; to act with my clothes off is a documentary.
Julia Roberts
I didn’t really care if I had a coach that much, me personally, because I was brought up to think for myself.
Billie Jean King
A lot of actors, and artists in general, never feel secure in love. They always feel everything’s going to be taken away from them, professionally and personally; they’re extremely emotional and volatile.
Sylvester Stallone
Personally, I take every match seriously and give off my best… My aim is to win and there’s no time to relax.
Ajinkya Rahane
Hollywood films have become a cesspool of formula and it’s up to us to try to change it… I feel like a preacher! But it’s really true. I feel personally responsible for the future of American cinema. Me personally.
Alexander Payne
It’s nice to be able to, you know, for me to be able to personally do whatever the heck I feel like, whether I think that I can justify it exactly in business concerns or not.
John Carmack
I consider personally the election of Barack Hussein Obama to have very great symbolic meaning. A Muslim and a Christian name – so in his name there is a synthesis, although people from time to time want to overlook that, and they do it intentionally.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
I’m a bit of a scaredy cat. Personally, I don’t like to be kept up at night.
Laurie Holden
Personally, I don’t ever want to depend on makeup to feel beautiful.
Lupita Nyong’o
The print on canvas is the closest to the original work. I personally sign them as well.
Dwayne Hickman
Faith is the first step to understanding. Either it’s the Word of an infallible God, the fallible words of men, or faith in what you personally believe. You’ve got to have faith in something. Believe me.
Ray Comfort
Many of the museum directors who make an impact personally curate exhibitions.
Jeffrey Deitch
If you are under the illusion that you can start a business and run it at your life’s schedule, you are mistaken. The business is like a starving puppy – when it needs to eat, then it needs to eat regardless of what you have going on personally.
Robert Herjavec
I personally think you can have a really rich and full life with no abs. Abs are for wimps.
Rachel McAdams
I personally love sportswear, and love using it in high fashion.
Stella McCartney
I know Chuck Lorre personally, and am familiar with his work going back to ‘Roseanne’ and ‘Cybil.’
Bob Newhart
Personally, I think Jesus would like better bands.
Billy Corgan
We hope that eventually there would be an occasion which I can personally prove that game music can in fact impress many different people and move them.
Nobuo Uematsu
I would say it simply: No one can give that which he doesn’t personally possess, which means we cannot transmit the Holy Spirit in an effective way, render the Spirit perceptible, if we ourselves aren’t close to the Spirit.
Pope Benedict XVI
Welfare distorts behavior, makes one less personally responsible and reduces the role of private charity. This principle applies to corporate welfare.
Larry Elder
Marriage equality is a hustler’s feeding frenzy of gold-diggers. I campaigned for marriage equality in Maryland because I believe we should have the right to it, but I personally don’t want to get married. I don’t want to imitate the traditions of heterosexual people. I hate weddings: they make me uneasy.
John Waters
Robert Johnson? No, I didn’t know him, personally.
Muddy Waters
My message is that giving is very important. Giving is a Jewish thing, and I like to talk about that. There’s nothing more important, personally, for anybody than being able to give.
Itzhak Perlman
We are seeing more managed money and, to an extent, institutional money entering the space. Anecdotally speaking, I know of many people who are working at hedge funds or other investment managers who are trading cryptocurrency personally, the question is, when do people start doing it with their firms and funds?
Olaf Carlson-Wee
I really fell into drama school – I had a lot of lot of luck. I didn’t take criticism very well while I was there; in fact, I took it personally. With every note I got, I felt like they were telling me I was a bad person.
Charlie Cox
The only sport I’m not interested in is horse racing. That’s because I don’t know the horses personally.
Nat King Cole
I think by paying attention to the feedback that you get on Yelp, you can very quickly integrate it into your business… The really savvy folks out there, they don’t necessarily take anything negative personally, but use it as constructive feedback and adjust their business.
Jeremy Stoppelman
It’s super dope when you connect with something personally.
Watkin Tudor Jones
I’ve never personally differentiated a person who dressed up in a three-piece suit and goes to Wall Street from a person who dresses up in a polyester uniform and works at McDonalds. I think it’s all drag.
RuPaul
Groups break up because they never got across what they wanted to do personally, and they have creative differences, and egos start to clash.
Kendrick Lamar
If a policy is wrongheaded, feckless and corrupt, I take it personally and consider it a moral obligation to sound off and not shut up until it’s fixed.
David Hackworth
If we are honest with ourselves, we have to admit that

If we are honest with ourselves, we have to admit that sometimes our assumptions and preconceived notions are wrong, and therefore, our interpretation of events is incorrect. This causes us to overreact, to take things personally, or to judge people unfairly.
Elizabeth Thornton
I personally pledge myself to openly counsel, aid, and abet youth, both black and white, to quarantine any Jim Crow conscription system.
A. Philip Randolph
With trials, you become wiser. You learn more about yourself and the people surrounding you. Me personally, I’ve never been the type of person to judge anyone over wrongdoing, no matter what it is. I’m just not a judgmental person.
Adrian Peterson
I haven’t personally experienced bullying, but when I was in high school, I had a best friend who became a bully. I took a stand and took it upon myself to separate from her. I couldn’t be associated with her because it wasn’t the type of person I wanted to be.
Amber Riley
I personally believe technology can transform the functioning of the judicial system.
Kapil Sibal
I’m not a representative of Pakistan; I’m just an example that Pakistanis are different from each other. I believe it in my fiction and I believe it personally.
Mohsin Hamid
I personally never got the gist of Facebook and Twitter.
Helena Bonham Carter
You learn not to take things personally, but it can be hard.
Motsi Mabuse
I personally, generally, don’t really feel much emotion if there’s some problem and I’m actively solving it.
Vitalik Buterin
‘A Christmas Story’ has always meant a lot to me personally.
Peter Billingsley
I’ve had it up to my ears with the personal mythology. It’s getting kind of personally sickening. The personal stuff just turns out to be misinterpreted. I’ve had such an earful for so long, it’s gotten tedious. I figure if you stay away from it, you’re safe.
Sam Shepard
I am glad to see the people grooving to and loving the Punjabi tunes. I also personally feel that Punjabi songs have a different vibe and energy, which helps in lifting one’s mood completely.
Guru Randhawa
Personally I’m not a feminist, as I can’t stand puritans.
Vivienne Westwood
I don’t think I will do a Mafia character again. I want to get away from the violence a little bit, because it is starting to bother me personally.
James Gandolfini
I’m proud of my hard work. Working hard won’t always lead to the exact things we desire. There are many things I’ve wanted that I haven’t always gotten. But, I have a great satisfaction in the blessings from my mother and father, who instilled a great work ethic in me both personally and professionally.
Tamron Hall
Personally, I feel that if you shoot off 200,000 rounds, and your lead character pulls out a pistol and never gets hit, there’s a sense of jeopardy that’s lost. It becomes a little less exciting when things don’t make sense.
Judge Reinhold
Me personally, I wouldn’t put my kids on television. But to each his own.
Nick Cannon
I’ve always been obsessed by visual art as I have been by music personally, but that doesn’t mean anything professionally.
Dave Matthews
To say that I am pro life is just wrong. I am personally pro-choice and legislatively pro-choice.
Harold Ford, Jr.
My daughter had carried within her a story that kept hurting her: Her dad abandoned her. She started telling herself a new story. Her dad had done the best he could. He wasn’t capable of giving more. It had nothing to do with her. She could no longer take it personally.
Regina Brett
I’ve been in Nigeria myself personally alone when elections have been going on and it was a bit ropey.
A. J. Odudu
Just for the record, I personally do agree with some of the sentiments of Rabbi Meir Kahane. I think he was right about certain things, wrong about other things, but I have absolutely nothing, no association whatsoever with Kahane Chai leaders.
Aaron Klein
I have a much wider, freer view about spirituality. I feel that people need to pursue it on their own, personally. You know, let it be theirs – a personal relationship with their soul, or their God, or with their church.
Peter Jurasik
When it comes to Starbucks, I take every threat very personally.
Howard Schultz
I don’t know what’s hipper: to Facebook or to Twitter. I just know for me, personally, discretion never went out of style.
John Ridley
I don’t personally try to balance my work because I operate under the assumption that anyone reading or watching my stuff isn’t having a particularly balanced day anyway. But negative attitudes just amuse me more than positive ones.
Lev Yilmaz
Fleetwood Mac were really accessible musically, but lyrically and emotionally, we weren’t so easy. And it was our music that helped us survive. But all of us were in pieces personally.
Mick Fleetwood
For me, personally, I really get a kick out of game shows. I like the play-along factor.
Doug Davidson
There is something about seeing real people on a stage that makes a bad play more intimately, more personally offensive than any other art form.
Anatole Broyard
Scheduling down time as part of your routine is hard but worth it, personally, even professionally.
Daniel Goleman
You know, the hard thing about audiences not liking what a character does is that they sometimes take it out on the actor personally. That’s something that you know when you become an actor or actress, but it’s always hard to deal with when it actually happens.
Linda Cardellini
Billions of taxpayers' money has been wasted in bad dea

Billions of taxpayers’ money has been wasted in bad deals. The London Underground modernisation, personally negotiated by one of Gordon Brown’s team, was a disaster, as the National Audit Office has confirmed.
Vince Cable
I’m personally a nonbeliever, so I’m struggling with if we really need religion.
Frans de Waal
Personally, I don’t stretch, I don’t get massages. Maybe massages would be useful, but I just don’t have the time for it.
Dean Karnazes
Personally, I think universities are finished. So much rubbish gets taught.
A. N. Wilson
I personally made a decision many years ago that I wanted to crawl into portraiture because it had a lot of latitude.
Annie Leibovitz
My wardrobe for ‘Suits’ isn’t like ‘Working Girl’ – dressing for work doesn’t have to be so on-the-nose these days. The key is to have your own point of view attached to it. Personally, I love cropped pants in vegan leather, a great fitted blazer, and a button-down.
Meghan Markle
I’ve said publicly, and it’s true, I’ve had a lot of wonderful things come my way. But personally, the greatest thing I ever accomplished was when I was named the starting quarterback at Ole Miss. That was my childhood dream, as it was thousands of kids in Mississippi.
Archie Manning
Personally, I’d like us to have a few more women on the ‘Today’ programme.
Evan Davis
As much as possible, location-specific information should not be collected in the first place, or not in personally identifiable form.
Adam Cohen
Personally, I believe people who have a lots of memories are people who are living with zest.
Karen Salmansohn
It’s important, according to me, to train in small doses so as to not lose the joy of playing chess. I personally think too many coaching and training classes may take away a child’s interest in the game itself. The essential thing to do is practise often and, in case of a doubt, to consult a trainer.
Viswanathan Anand
I have not been part of an active counterculture movement, as it is not the approach that I have personally pursued to create a qualitatively beneficial and meaningful impact on society.
Al Seckel
I would like to do a musical, if I could find a cool one. A song-and-dance role is closer to me personally than other characters I play.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
When she started to play, Steinway came down personally and rubbed his name off the piano.
Bob Hope
For me, personally, I will always do G-rated films, which the world needs more of.
John Lasseter
The sadness of the women’s movement is that they don’t allow the necessity of love. See, I don’t personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.
Maya Angelou
Personally, I would say the ‘master’ of this whole thing is fate… Whoever is on the playing field is fair game, and it’s up to them to avoid being used.
Cliff Burton
I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, You can’t wear anything sleeveless or strapless. And all of a sudden I was like, What if I just didn’t send such negative messages to my brain and said, wear it and enjoy it? And now I’m more comfortable in clothes than ever.
Drew Barrymore
Any thief or criminal or robber who enters another country in order to steal should expect to be exposed to murder at any time. For the American forces to expect anything from me personally reflects a very narrow perception.
Osama bin Laden
It’s very difficult to learn not to take nasty heckles personally.
Jo Brand
I’m honored when young people say they’ve gone to school on slide guitar with my records. But people get their influence from my live shows and records and YouTube, not me personally. I walk around with a hat on. People don’t know it’s me.
Bonnie Raitt
