We want Google to be the third half of your brain.
Sergey Brin
Being right half the time beats being half-right all the time.
Malcolm Forbes
To get the feel of how the slider should roll off of your index finger, use this grip and practice at half speed and roughly half the distance to the mound.
Steve Carlton
If you destroyed half the pharmaceutical production in

If you destroyed half the pharmaceutical production in the United States, we’d think it’s a pretty serious problem. In fact, we’d probably go to war.
Noam Chomsky
My big places to shop are Wal-Mart and Target – seriously. That is where half of my stuff comes from now.
Kelly Preston
Hawaii is the best form of comfort for me. When I die, I want to be cremated, and I want half my ashes spread in the Pacific around the island, the rest on the property.
Richard Pryor
I began to believe the fairy tales: You know, how we’re all out there looking for our magical missing half.
Michael Bergin
If you want to be a professional writer then you need to write consistently. Inspiration strikes about once every blue moon which, for me, is once every two and a half to three months, which is when I’ll get really and truly inspired about something.
Christopher Paolini
If you were an optimistic teen, then you’ll be an optimist at 80. People’s reactions to bad events are highly stable over a half century or more.
Martin Seligman
I’m careful, controlled, bodily conservative: if someone offered me a pill I’d only ever take a half.
Roy Harper
Big companies are like marching bands. Even if half the band is playing random notes, it still sounds kind of like music. The concealment of failure is built into them.
Douglas Coupland
Ali had a break that was an inch and a half long, and you keep getting hit as hard and as much as I hit Ali, the pain would take over and you would pass out.
Ken Norton
If a product has an endless list of ingredients, and you can’t pronounce half of them, I would think twice about bringing them into your home.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
I live half the year in Nigeria, the other half in the U.S. But home is Nigeria – it always will be. I consider myself a Nigerian who is comfortable in the world. I look at it through Nigerian eyes.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Wrongful convictions happen every week in every state in this country. And they happen for all the same reasons. Sloppy police work. Eyewitness identification is the most – is the worst type almost. Because it’s wrong about half the time. Think about that.
John Grisham
I think it is about time that equipped women began to take on some of the ethical questions which a male-dominated culture has produced and dissect and analyze them quite to pieces in a serious fashion. It is time that ‘half the human race’ had something to say about the nature of its existence.
Lorraine Hansberry
It took me less than half a lifetime to realize that regret is one of the few guaranteed certainties. Sooner or later everything is touched by it, despite our naive and senseless hope that just this time we will be spared its cold hand on our heart.
Jonathan Carroll
I pretty much only drink water, Tazo passion tea, or coffee with half and half, and it’s an ongoing joke in the office that I never have less than three glasses of water and some form of tea or coffee in front of me.
Ivanka Trump
I am a positive person. I never think of the glass as half empty. I just keep pushing forward.
Rosie Perez
Never angrily rant into your web cam. While smashing a keyboard in half over a game of ‘World of Warcraft’ may seem totally justified in your head, to the rest of the known universe you look like a raging psychopath.
Ray William Johnson
Women hold up more than half the sky and represent much of the world’s unrealized potential. They are the educators. They raise the children. They hold families together and increasingly drive economies. They are natural leaders. We need their full engagement… in government, business and civil society.
Ban Ki-moon
I’m proud to pay taxes in the United States; the only thing is, I could be just as proud for half the money.
Arthur Godfrey
Among the many important provisions in the energy bill are the creation of an estimated half million new jobs, increased oil production, blackout protection, controlling fertilizer costs by stabilizing natural gas prices and enacting new efficiency benchmarks.
Paul Gillmor
Politeness is half good manners and half good lying.
Mary Wilson Little
This applies to many film jobs, not just editing: half the job is doing the job, and the other half is finding ways to get along with people and tuning yourself in to the delicacy of the situation.
Walter Murch
Peru is a country where more than half the people would emigrate if given the chance. That’s half the population that is willing to abandon everything they know for the uncertainty of a life in a foreign land, in another language.
Daniel Alarcon
Let me first say that I don’t think the millennium target of cutting global poverty in half is an impossible or abstract target. I think it is a real and achievable goal.
Gro Harlem Brundtland
No one could have predicted on day one of rehearsals, that a year and a half later we would have shot a film and all be living in New York. It was surreal.
James Corden
The way Michael Vick uses his legs and is able to throw out of the pocket really changes games. The way that Aaron Rodgers is able to sit in the pocket and make throws that not a lot of people can make – I hope I can be half what those guys are and emulate it into my game.
Marcus Mariota
In the first half of the 20th century, fashion was simply not a very English thing to do.
Mary Quant
Words, like nature, half reveal and half conceal the soul within.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
If it’s a huge tentpole movie, for instance with a movie like ‘Tintin,’ a year and a half, almost two years in advance, we were developing a videogame campaign and massive consumer products campaign.
Kathleen Kennedy
Ten percent of the big fish still remain. There are still some blue whales. There are still some krill in Antarctica. There are a few oysters in Chesapeake Bay. Half the coral reefs are still in pretty good shape, a jeweled belt around the middle of the planet. There’s still time, but not a lot, to turn things around.
Sylvia Earle
I’m half Jewish, half Christian. I’m a Jew for Jesus.
Terrell Suggs
I was editing Canadian Literature. I didn't want to let

I was editing Canadian Literature. I didn’t want to let Canadian Literature go, so they reached a nice compromise by which I received half a professor’s salary.
George Woodcock
Famines were frequent in colonial India and some estimates indicate that 30 to 40 million died out of starvation in Tamil Nadu, Bihar and Bengal during the later half of the 19th century.
M. S. Swaminathan
Now I don’t know half of the young people in the industry. It’s too spread out, too diffuse.
Cesar Romero
In terms of working out, I’m in the gym, maximum, twice a week, but for a pretty intense period of time: two or two and a half hours nonstop. Most of the exercises are body weight. We’re talking pull-ups, chin-ups, decline rows, elevated push-ups.
Scott Glenn
I don’t do plays without jokes anymore. I’ve retired from those plays. I think it’s bad manners to invite people to sit in the dark for two and a half hours and not tell them the joke.
Bill Nighy
One of the factors a country’s economy depends on is human capital. If you don’t provide women with adequate access to healthcare, education and employment, you lose at least half of your potential. So, gender equality and women’s empowerment bring huge economic benefits.
Michelle Bachelet
A wise man’s question contains half the answer.
Solomon Ibn Gabirol
I’m half Telugu. My mom is Telugu and dad, a Maharashtrian. I was brought up in Gwalior. I was exposed to English, Hindi, and Marathi. I heard my mom speak to her family in Telugu, so I got the hang of it.
Harshvardhan Rane
My husband and I met when I was a teenager, and I’ve been with him for more than half of my adult life.
Aisha Tyler
I feel like I’ve dreamed half of my life that hasn’t happened yet, so a lot of times I’m going along, and I do stuff, and I know that I’ve done it. I have deja vus more than I have regular experiences. If half of your day is a deja vu, then you start to wonder, ‘What is real and what isn’t?’
Marilyn Manson
But I think our humour is exactly the same today. Only, we’ve made rules now. We’ve said we are not going to do prosthetic make-up scenes, because when they take it off half your face comes off.
Jennifer Saunders
Half the lies they tell about me aren’t true.
Yogi Berra
I am a product of an amalgamation of different teachers. If it was just one teacher, even just my father, I would be half the player that I am today.
Synyster Gates
In the Top 40, half the songs are secret messages to the teen world to drop out, turn on, and groove with the chemicals and light shows at discotheques.
Art Linkletter
I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it’s half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
Althea Gibson
The only time I ever spend alone is when I am working or when my husband is away filming. I put the kids to bed and have an hour and a half in the evening for myself.
Helen McCrory
While Kuwait is not a democracy, giving only half the population a voice in their government is not a policy this Congress should support and one that I am glad that Kuwait’s leaders are changing.
Ginny Brown-Waite
Research shows that there is only half as much variation in student achievement between schools as there is among classrooms in the same school. If you want your child to get the best education possible, it is actually more important to get him assigned to a great teacher than to a great school.
Bill Gates
Hermione uses all these big long tongue twister words. I don’t know what she’s going on about half the time!
Emma Watson
Humans are amphibians – half spirit and half animal. As spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time.
C. S. Lewis
If kids see you on the street and they want an autograph, that’s a big honour so I spend half an hour before I get in the ground and 40 minutes to an hour after the game with the Everton fans signing autographs.
Timothy F. Cahill
Who never doubted, never half believed. Where doubt is, there truth is – it is her shadow.
Ambrose Bierce
Tony La Russa is considered among the best in his business. Yet nearly half the time he led his organizations into competition, they were defeated – 2,728 wins, 2,365 losses.
Don Yaeger
My lighter, more superficial side will always steal a march on the deeper side and therefore always win. You can’t imagine how often I’ve tried to push away this Anne, which is only half of what is known as Anne – to beat her down, hide her.
Anne Frank
To preach more than half an hour, a man should be an angel himself or have angels for hearers.
George Whitefield
My father, Dennis Popham, was a very handsome, talented artist, and as my mother always reminds me, ‘someone who had wonderful style.’ He was half Samoan-German, half New Zealander, and their first date was to a Fleetwood Mac concert, which I love the thought of.
Emilia Wickstead
I always tell people you can’t make peace half way: to make peace with somebody, you have to make peace and bury the hatchet, or you just keep fighting forever.
Bret Hart
When a man retires, his wife gets twice the husband but only half the income.
Chi Chi Rodriguez
No, there’s nothing half so sweet in life as love’s young dream.
Thomas Moore
I sat staring, staring, staring – half lost, learning a new language or rather the same language in a different dialect. So still were the big woods where I sat, sound might not yet have been born.
Emily Carr
Sea World’s killer whale collection needs constant replenishing. The average life span of the animals in captivity is less than half the average for killer whales in the ocean.
Nina Easton
I do not say think as I think, but think in my way. Fea

I do not say think as I think, but think in my way. Fear no shadows, least of all in that great spectre of personal unhappiness which binds half the world to orthodoxy.
Thomas Huxley
A skilful leech is better far, than half a hundred men of war.
Samuel Butler
Lunch kills half of Paris, supper the other half.
Montesquieu
I’m a computer guy, and one of the things I did with the good fortune that ‘Presumed Innocent’ brought me was to buy one of the very first laptop computers. It weighed about eight and a half pounds, by the way.
Scott Turow
The glass is always half full: I have no time for anything negative – and actually, I’ve bought crystals for all my team, so they all carry crystals as well.
Victoria Beckham
We started at once to dig our trenches, half of my platoon stepping forward abreast, the men being placed an arm’s length apart. After laying their rifles down, barrels pointing to the enemy, a line was drawn behind the row of rifles and parallel to it.
Fritz Kreisler
Every one of my positions cuts – out half the country. I’m pro-choice, I’m pro-gay rights, I’m pro-immigration, I’m against guns, I believe in Darwin.
Michael Bloomberg
We simply can no longer afford to deny the full potential of one half of the population. The world needs to tap into the talent and wisdom of women. Whether the issue is food security, economic recovery, health, or peace and security, the participation of women is needed now more than ever.
Michelle Bachelet
I have treated many hundreds of patients. Among those in the second half of life – that is to say, over 35 – there has not been one whose problem in the last resort was not that of finding a religious outlook on life.
Carl Jung
A smart man only believes half of what he hears, a wise man knows which half.
Jeff Cooper
One half of the world’s people live on less than two dollars a day. This should concern our national security policy as well as our conscience.
Lee H. Hamilton
However, those who have used those words use half the sentence to fit their purpose, which, of course, I believe is to discredit me and the new Nation of Islam that has come up around me.
Louis Farrakhan
I don’t have half the nerves there that I have anywhere else.
Eric Clapton
You spend so much time in your head in life. And what yoga does is, it asks you to allow your head to be quiet, to allow it to be still, just for an hour and a half. Just deal with your body and your breath. And it’s a great workout. I love it.
Colin Farrell
For someone who loves literature, and all books on principle, being asked to name three titles over a half century of serious reading is akin to asking one to recall their three favorite sunsets.
Thomas Steinbeck
There’s a lot of work to do – not only the science but maintaining the facilities up here. When you go down from a crew of six to a crew of three, obviously you’ve lost half of your crew time available, so it does have an impact. But it’s an impact we plan for.
Scott Kelly
To say nothing, especially when speaking, is half the art of diplomacy.
Will Durant
The sparrow that is twittering on the edge of my balcony is calling up to me this moment a world of memories that reach over half my lifetime, and a world of hope that stretches farther than any flight of sparrows.
Donald G. Mitchell
I grew up half in South Central and half in the San Fernando valley.
Cheech Marin
I do have a personal life. I spend half of the week at home. One of those nights, I’ll go out with some friends and have a good time. I have a day and a half at home, and love to just sit on my backyard by my pool, read a book, or do some writing. That’s my vacation.
Dolph Ziggler
My dad told me, ‘It takes fifteen years to be an overnight success’, and it took me seventeen and a half years.
Adrien Brody
Modernity is the transient, the fleeting, the contingent; it is one half of art, the other being the eternal and the immovable.
Charles Baudelaire
I tell people I’m too stupid to know what’s impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.
Debi Thomas
I had a wonderful time at Liverpool. My three and a half years there was a great experience.
Brendan Rodgers
He who has seen one cathedral ten times has seen something; he who has seen ten cathedrals once has seen but little; and he who has spent half an hour in each of a hundred cathedrals has seen nothing at all.
Sinclair Lewis
Two years ago, if anyone had told me I’d be doing half the stuff I’m doing, I wouldn’t have believed it.
Zayn Malik
Around me I saw women overworked and underpaid, doing men’s work at half men’s wages, not because their work was inferior, but because they were women.
Anna Howard Shaw
Half the states have stopped making civics and government a requirement for high school. Half.
Sandra Day O’Connor
The man who can keep a secret may be wise, but he is not half as wise as the man with no secrets to keep.
E. W. Howe
Recycling, cutting back on driving, and changing out old light bulbs for energy-efficient ones might save half a ton of carbon a year. A household going car-free, flight-free, and vegan – changes impractical, if not outright impossible, for many families to make – might reduce emissions by four tons a year.
Annie Lowrey
I never wore a single fedora filming ‘L.A. Noire.’ It took about an hour and a half to do the hair – it was a very precise process.
Aaron Staton
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but i

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it’s not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.
Terry Pratchett
Yet food is something that is taken for granted by most world leaders despite the fact that more than half of the population of the world is hungry.
Norman Borlaug
One ought never to turn one’s back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
Winston Churchill
I write for a certain sphere of readers in the United States who on average watch seven and a half hours of multichannel television per day.
Jerzy Kosinski
The young people look great on television. They’re youthful and have a lot of zip and energy, but when you see them live, they can only do about 20 minutes because they haven’t got the training to hold an audience for an hour and a half or so.
Tony Bennett
To me, the costume does half the job for you, or even more than half of the job.
Phoebe Dynevor
It is hard to know what you are talking about in mathematics, yet no one questions the validity of what you say. There is no other realm of discourse half so queer.
James Newman
I’m visiting my high school. Every half year I do the exams, and then this year I’m going to graduate.
Daniela Hantuchova
I need a break. I’ve been working for about a year and a half. I think I’d like to go to Pakistan.
Mia Kirshner
For me, the backdrop of half the experiences of life includes music.
Amy Grant
My father went to work by train every day. It was half an hour’s journey each way, and he would read a paperback in four journeys. After supper, we all sat down to read – it was long before TV, remember!
Maeve Binchy
I’m just one of those people that if I sit down to watch a horror film, I put my hands over my face and I cry a lot and I don’t see half of the film because I’m too upset.
Neve Campbell
If the Old Testament were a reliable guide in the matter of capital punishment, half the people in the United States would have to be killed tomorrow.
Steve Allen
A painting that is well composed is half finished.
Pierre Bonnard
A lie which is half a truth is ever the blackest of lies.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
The city is as large as Seville or Cordova; its streets, I speak of the principal ones, are very wide and straight; some of these, and all the inferior ones, are half land and half water, and are navigated by canoes.
Hernan Cortes
Believe me, than in half the creeds.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I’d say I am a fly half. As regards being 12 for England, I’ve not tried to play any different. I guess I’ve been like another 10. Obviously, you do some things differently, and you might not have your hands on the ball as much – but you’re still in the game and constantly communicating.
Owen Farrell
I turned up for my first day training with England Under-19s super excited, and I just happened to bang my knee on the floor, and it just blew up. It turned out that I’d completely snapped it in half.
Lucy Bronze
Remember to look at your glass half full and not half empty. A lot of my strength comes from God. God has given me a gift – the gift of life – and it’s amazing that I live each day.
Mattie Stepanek
You can’t make people laugh for more than half an hour and be consistent.
Hal Roach
Basically, I start my morning off with a Bustelo coffee made in a mocha pot – the Bialetti. I warm some milk on the side, on my stove, and I add one teaspoon or half a teaspoon of real sugar. I have two of these every morning. Even when I was pregnant.
Debi Mazar
After you ride a roller coaster that’s been going up for a year and a half, and you reach the pinnacle and then dive straight down with no gradual decline, it’s a little disorienting. I didn’t know how to take losing.
Bill Goldberg
I stopped eating carbs and red meat for a month and a half, and I was like, ‘Oh, no, I lost my butt!’ I have to eat potatoes and rice and meat to bulk up. But I do try not to eat too much fast food.
Karrueche Tran
Half the lies our opponents tell about us are untrue.
Boyle Roche
I do yoga every morning, then I run for half an hour and take a sauna.
Antonio Banderas
All the blood is drained out of democracy – it dies – when only half the population votes.
Hunter S. Thompson
What does the future, that half of time, matter to the man who is infatuated with eternity?
Emil Cioran
When you’re onstage and you know you’re bombing, that’s very, very scary. Because you know you gotta keep going – you’re bombing, but you can’t stop. And you know that half an hour from now, you’re still gonna be bombing. It takes a thick skin.
Christopher Walken
Drilling is risky because finding oil is only half the job. The real challenge is finding the money to pump the oil.
Tahl Raz
Nothing can be more absurd than the practice that prevails in our country of men and women not following the same pursuits with all their strengths and with one mind, for thus, the state instead of being whole is reduced to half.
Plato
Nearly half of the American population is eagerly antic

Nearly half of the American population is eagerly anticipating the end of the world. This dewy-eyed nihilism provides absolutely no incentive to build a sustainable civilization. Many of these people are lunatics, but they are not the lunatic fringe.
Sam Harris
It’s not an anti-sex trip. Like, we’re taking sex, which is probably another half of American entertainment, sex and violence, and we’re projecting it, and we’re saying this is the way everything is right now.
Alice Cooper
There wouldn’t be half as much fun in the world if it weren’t for children and men, and there ain’t a mite of difference between them under the skins.
Ellen Glasgow
There lives more faith in honest doubt, believe me, than in half the creeds.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.
Princess Diana
At least half my writing time is spent researching. So for every hour I’m actually clicking on the keyboard, I’m spending another hour trying to figure out some tiny detail I need answered.
Gail Carriger
Half a world away nations that once lived under oppression and tyranny are now budding democracies due in large part to America ‘s leadership and the sacrifices of our military.
Bob Riley
There’s a very passionate pro-chewing movement on the Internet called Chewdiasm. They say that we should be chewing 50 to 100 times per mouthful, which is insane. I tried that. It takes like a day and a half to eat a sandwich. But their basic idea is right. If you chew, you’ll eat slower and you will get more nutrients.
A. J. Jacobs
Rome has not seen a modern building in more than half a century. It is a city frozen in time.
Richard Meier
Get inside information from the president and you will probably lose half your money. If you get it from the chairman of the board, you will lose all of your money.
Jim Rogers
The doubt of an earnest, thoughtful, patient and laborious mind is worthy of respect. In such doubt may be found indeed more faith than in half the creeds.
John Lancaster Spalding
I maintain that the period during the first half of the 1990s, the period in which rising inequality reached its peak, was a period in which we came very, very close to a demagogic immobilization of racism in this society.
William Julius Wilson
That’s what’s so great about television. You’re able to tell this long story, where you couldn’t really do that in a film because you have to tell a story in an hour and a half or two hours.
Aaron Paul
Half a century ago, the amazing courage of Rosa Parks, the visionary leadership of Martin Luther King, and the inspirational actions of the civil rights movement led politicians to write equality into the law and make real the promise of America for all her citizens.
David Cameron
I was about five years old when I was eating soup in our kitchen, and as I was lifting the spoon towards my mouth, it bent and broke in half.
Uri Geller
We need to quit arguing about whether the glass is half full or half empty – and instead acknowledge that there’s not quite enough water to go around.
Kate Brown
I was busy in making a film called ‘Buddha in a Traffic Jam’ and it consumed two and half years.
Vivek Agnihotri
Success to me is having ten honeydew melons and eating only the top half of each slice.
Barbra Streisand
My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years, to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.
Grover Norquist
I remember the beginnings of the Kurzweil reading machine. I was one of the first to meet Ray Kurzweil and purchase the reading machine in Boston. To think that the machine was at least two and a half large suitcases at the time, and now you have a camera and it takes a picture and you have sound.
Stevie Wonder
When I was 50 years old, I actually decided to draw up a list of half a dozen things that I really hadn’t done very well, and I was going to make efforts to improve. One of them was skiing, and I really did become a very much better skier.
Edmund Hillary
I’m a very positive person, glass half full.
A. J. Pritchard
For the first half of geological time our ancestors were bacteria. Most creatures still are bacteria, and each one of our trillions of cells is a colony of bacteria.
Richard Dawkins
I think that half of us feel fraudulent in our lives anyway. There’s that strange disconnect of not really knowing what we’re doing sometimes, or why it matters. It’s our existential crisis.
Carrie Brownstein
Stand up to your obstacles and do something about them. You will find that they haven’t half the strength you think they have.
Norman Vincent Peale
When it comes to jewellery, less is more as you get older. Just before I go out to a party, I look at myself in the mirror and take off half of the jewellery I’m wearing. Anything that rattles or clanks is just too dowager duchess.
Jerry Hall
If I made a list of the people I admire, Mom would probably fill up half of it. She could do anything and everything.
Patsy Cline
Well, I’ve just gotten accustomed to just being in Canada for five and a half months a year.
Anthony Michael Hall
Don’t give up at half time. Concentrate on winning the second half.
Bear Bryant
I commuted an hour and a half each way to high school in N.Y.C. I took a bus, a ferry, then a subway.
Colin Jost
What kind of moron would go to work for half the amount of money, when they could sit at home and collect what’s written in a contract?
Bill Goldberg
Matthew Lowe is one of the great water men that I know.

Matthew Lowe is one of the great water men that I know. He’s a surfer, a great water polo player. I think he’s half fish.
Rob Lowe
Half the world is composed of idiots, the other half of people clever enough to take indecent advantage of them.
Walter Kerr
The half hour between waking and rising has all my life proved propitious to any task which was exercising my invention… It was always when I first opened my eyes that the desired ideas thronged upon me.
Walter Scott
You could hear him, literally, half a mile away when he opened up. He was at his peak then. He was, naturally, dying to get out of the place he was in, and he recorded for us his appeal for pardon to the governor.
Alan Lomax
Half the stuff I have done which has been successful would never have been made if it had been shown to focus groups.
John Hurt
One half of the world cannot understand the pleasures of the other.
Jane Austen
I did plays in college, and I have half of a play. But I’m kind of stuck. I keep revisiting it so maybe it will move somewhere. There’s something about plays where you can feel that sense of artifice at any moment.
Aimee Bender
The opponents and I are really one. My strength and skills only half of the equation. The other half is theirs. An opponent is someone whose strength joined to yours creates a certain result.
Sadaharu Oh
Most everybody who’s Italian is half Italian. Except me. I’m all Italian. I’m mostly Sicilian, and I have a little bit of Neapolitan in me. You get your full dose with me.
Al Pacino
Books that have become classics – books that have had their day and now get more praise than perusal – always remind me of retired colonels and majors and captains who, having reached the age limit, find themselves retired on half pay.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
I’m a books person. Yes, I have a Kindle. I used it for an hour and a half and put it in the closet.
Andrew Wylie
Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards.
Benjamin Franklin
I always run in the morning on an empty stomach, and I’ll go through a bottle and a half of water. Then I have a protein drink or I eat egg whites.
Drew Carey
I was at rock bottom for a year and a half – and the people who got me out of my rut were my fans.
Paige
I’m, like, half Norwegian and half Italian.
Toby Regbo
Of course I’m sure half the people there hate me and half the people like me.
Kevin Mitnick
Rich people never go to war. You ask a college kid to go to war, and he’s like, ‘Umm, I’m taking this sociology class, and I think war is, like, really stupid, and my roommate’s, like, half Afghani, so it’s going to cause some static.’
Bill Burr
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
I’m limitless. Glass is always half full.
Michael Sorrentino
Half of us are partly German! Half our language and culture, generally, in Anglo-Saxon terms, is German.
Martin Freeman
We are half ruined by conformity, but we should be wholly ruined without it.
Charles Dudley Warner
I’m working as hard as I can. Yesterday, I had five different debates. I don’t get a half an hour a day to talk to my wife. I don’t know how much harder I can work.
Jim Moran
Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.
Alexandre Dumas
I’m six foot four and a half and I have a temper. It’s reserved for very important issues. If someone is asking me to make an artistic concession, then I’ll become a madman.
Tim Robbins
There ought to be an artistic depot where the artist need only hand in his artwork in order to receive what he asks for. As things are, one must be half a business man, and how can one understand – good heavens! – that’s what I really call troublesome.
Ludwig van Beethoven
I remember when I did the pilot, and I though no network is going to want to do this. How could that happen? A half Chinese guy walking the old west that doesn’t fire one gun and never gets on a horse?
David Carradine
Trees are our closest relatives. What trees exhale, we inhale; what we exhale, they inhale. They are half our respiratory system.
Jaggi Vasudev
His name is ‘Mr. Spock.’ And the first view of him can be almost frightening – a face so heavy-lidded and satanic you might almost expect him to have a forked tail. Probably half Martian, he has a slightly reddish complexion and semi-pointed ears.
Gene Roddenberry
Sex is a conversation carried out by other means. If you get on well out of bed, half the problems of bed are solved.
Peter Ustinov
A virtuous character is likened to an unblemished flower. Piety is a fadeless bud that half opens on earth and expands through eternity. Sweetness of temper is the odor of fresh blooms, and the amaranth flowers of pure affection open but to bloom forever.
Dorothea Dix
Since Star Wars, that film’s success led to bigger budgets, more hardware, that the great movies like the ones I did, which were studio movies, are now independent movies. They range from half a million to several million, and a lot of those have very interesting roles.
Faye Dunaway
We are worried about the size of the deficit, which is

We are worried about the size of the deficit, which is why the president is pleased that the House and Senate have followed his lead in cutting the deficit in half over the next five years.
Ken Mehlman
I always see the glass half full. I see the beauty in others, and I see the hope for tomorrow. If we don’t have hope and faith, we have nothing.
Craig Sager
To know that one has a secret is to know half the secret itself.
Henry Ward Beecher
I work out two, two and a half hours a day.
Henry Cavill
It’s difficult for my mum because she doesn’t know half of the things that happened. She might think the sun shines out of me. That’s the case with a lot of parents and their children – they don’t really know what goes on when they leave the house.
Andre Gray
About half my time is spent on business operation type stuff.
Mark Zuckerberg
We do have pictures on the wall, in our office in Belfast where we spend half our time. All the head shots are on the wall. So yeah, we just throw darts at the ones we don’t want anymore.
D. B. Weiss
He has the deed half done who has made a beginning.
Horace
There isn’t a religion on earth that isn’t damaging to the human race because every one of them is patriarchal and every one eliminates more than half of the human race – women. They are all oppressors of women.
Susan Powter
I pity the young woman who will attempt to insinuate herself between my mama’s boy and me. I sympathize with the monumental nature of her task. It will take a crowbar, two bulldozers and half a dozen Molotov cocktails to pry my Oedipus and me loose from one another.
Ayelet Waldman
Half your battle is won when the writing is good, and then you as an artist bring your personality into it.
Abhay Deol
Never talk for half a minute without pausing and giving others a chance to join in.
Sydney Smith
I don’t know why people question the academic training of an athlete. Fifty percent of the doctors in this country graduated in the bottom half of their classes.
Al McGuire
I just spent 11 and a half months in a maximum-security jail, got shot five times, and was wrongly convicted of a crime I didn’t commit.
Tupac Shakur
People think being famous is so glamorous, but half the time you’re in a strange hotel room living out of a suitcase.
Ja Rule
Literature flourishes best when it is half a trade and half an art.
William Inge
I do not fear Satan half so much as I fear those who fear him.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Half of the secular unrest and dismal, profane sadness of modern society comes from the vain ideas that every man is bound to be a critic for life.
Henry Van Dyke
Half the U.S. population owns barely 2 percent of its wealth, putting the United States near Rwanda and Uganda and below such nations as pre-Arab Spring Tunisia and Egypt when measured by degrees of income inequality.
Eric Alterman
Persistence is half the battle. That’s what I love about independent movies. They don’t have to be made. There’s no studio with an agenda to set up a franchise like ‘Batman’ or to make a vehicle for a celebrity actor. My films are made because I love the process.
Brad Anderson
The clever men at Oxford, know all that there is to be knowed. But they none of them know one half as much, as intelligent Mr. Toad.
Kenneth Grahame
I lived a block and a half away from four cousins, and I had three siblings. The Jaeger home was a big, messy, happy family.
Sam Jaeger
I never wanted to become an actor. I always wanted to be a farmer and dreamt of owning half an acre of agriculture land.
Pawan Kalyan
Compared to coal, which generates almost half the electricity in the United States, natural gas is indeed a cleaner, less polluting fuel. But compared to, say, solar, it’s filthy. And of course there is nothing renewable about natural gas.
Jeff Goodell
For years, I meant to read ‘Arabian Sands’, Wilfred Thesiger’s account of two punishing camel journeys during the late 1940s across Southern Arabia’s Empty Quarter. Now that I have, I can sheepishly join the chorus of those who revere the book as one of the half dozen greatest works of modern English travel writing.
Michael Dirda
We have trouble feeding, providing fresh, clean water, medicines, fuel for the six and a half billion. It’s going to be a stretch to do it for nine.
Craig Venter
I played in Joe Louis in a playoff game. I played there when the roof caved in for half a season. The facility is great for basketball because it goes straight up, so you feel like the fans are on top of you.
Bill Laimbeer
It can only be true love when you enable your other half to be better, to be the person they’re destined to be.
Michelle Yeoh
When the show started out, it was like all of a sudden we had to do 35 episodes and we had just a month and a half to write them, and it took me a while to realize that I was in charge.
Mike Judge
Half the people in Hollywood are dying to be discovered and the other half are afraid they will be.
Lionel Barrymore
Today a minimum wage earner has to work a day and a half just to pay for a full tank of gas. That is simply shameful.
Bill Pascrell
'White Rabbit' was mostly done in about two days, the m

‘White Rabbit’ was mostly done in about two days, the music in about half an hour. The music is a ‘Bolero’ rip-off and the lyrics a rearrangement of ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ You take two spectacular hits and throw them together, and it’s hard to miss.
Grace Slick
It’s much more casual than it was, but my clothes and my ring attire – I thought up half of what I brought to the show.
Ric Flair
It’s important to get under your opponent’s skin and let them know that you are coming for them out in the middle. When you do that, half the battle’s won!
Dale Steyn
I do it for myself and for like-minded people. Half the time I don’t know why I make what I do. I’d do this if no one was listening. I’m stuck. I’ve got the curse.
Madlib
Born and raised in Paris, I am deeply attached to my city; we almost have half a century of love story together, where I have been truly completely faithful! The most beautiful city in the world is my city, yeepeeee!
Christian Louboutin
Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who’s sorry for a gnat or girl?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Art, like real estate, is half science, half gut. We go to a lot of art fairs. We have two full-time art experts who help me make all the decisions about how to build the corporate and personal collection and what we put in our developments. We don’t let interior designers pick art for us.
Jorge M. Perez
Television? The word is half Greek, half Latin. No good can come of it.
C. P. Scott
I haven’t been to a movie in a year and a half.
James Ellroy
For fifteen years, I was a teacher of youth. They were years out of the fullness and bloom of my younger manhood. They were years mingled of half breathless work, of anxious self-questionings, of planning and replanning, of disillusion, or mounting wonder.
W. E. B. Du Bois
I just wish the world was twice as big and half of it was still unexplored.
David Attenborough
You have two hemispheres in your brain – a left and a right side. The left side controls the right side of your body and right controls the left half. It’s a fact. Therefore, left-handers are the only people in their right minds.
Bill Lee
It is the same in love as in war; a fortress that parleys is half taken.
Margaret of Valois
We continually say things to support an opinion, which we have given, that in reality we don’t above half mean.
Frances Burney
If you get half a million, at a certain stage you probably will get 4 million people, if they are able to hear it. The touring thing is unbelievable. It really is amazing from what we did the last tour even to what we are doing now.
John Mayer
A writer is, after all, only half his book. The other half is the reader and from the reader the writer learns.
P. L. Travers
You have a billion people who know ‘Tribbles’ and only half a million who know my novel ‘The Man Who Folded Himself,’ which is one of my better-known books.
David Gerrold
In the second half of primary school, I liked live-action shows and giant-monster movies, and then in junior high, I got into regular movies.
Akira Toriyama
Half our mistakes in life arise from feeling where we ought to think, and thinking where we ought to feel.
John Churton Collins
The entire economy, of course, is locked in a down cycle right now. Last time we weathered this was during another Bush presidency in ’90. We were locked in it for a year and a half and everyone came out of it.
David Talbot
I was half asleep lying there writing this lyric in my head at about 3:30 in the morning. I woke Steve up with this idea and then we went into the living room where there was a little upright piano and finished the song. I wonder where that piano is now?
Jim Capaldi
Your body is like a piece of dynamite. You can tap it with a pencil all day, but you’ll never make it explode. You hit it once with a hammer: Bang! Get serious. Do 40 hard minutes, not an hour and half of nonsense. It’s so much more rewarding.
Jason Statham
If I studied all my life, I couldn’t think up half the number of funny things passed in one session of congress.
Will Rogers
I used to have six left feet. Now I only have one and a half left feet.
Jesse McCartney
Almost every scene, I re-think as I’m about to start drawing it, and at least half of the time I’m changing dialogue or whatever, or adding scenes or different things.
Chester Brown
In the rich world, the environmental situation has improved dramatically. In the United States, the most important environmental indicator, particulate air pollution, has been cut by more than half since 1955, rivers and coastal waters have dramatically improved, and forests are increasing.
Bjorn Lomborg
But I do feel a little teeny right now that I’m just about ready to start, and winter is entering. Half past autumn has arrived.
Gordon Parks
TV writing – for me, at least – is half original voice and half an embodiment and a representation of the spirit of the actors you’re writing for.
Julie Plec
My attitude when I’m in Mexico is I wake up in the morning with nothing to do and I go to bed half done. I don’t wear a watch. When I live down there, I do nothing according to time. I eat when I’m hungry and go to sleep when I’m tired.
Jesse Ventura
Half a century ago, Ronald Reagan, the man whose relentless optimism inspired me to enter politics, famously said that he didn’t leave the Democratic Party; the party left him. I can certainly relate. I didn’t leave the Republican Party; it left me.
Charlie Crist
The majority of people think their children’s lives will not be as good as theirs. Nearly half of all Americans are no longer proud of their country. Politicians have become a despised breed.
Kathleen Troia McFarland
When you have good friends you've been around, every ti

When you have good friends you’ve been around, every time they talk, you don’t give them your full attention. You don’t look them in the eye and stop. Half the time, you’re listening, half the time, you are ignoring them.
Matthew McConaughey
There are people who enjoy the life in England but don’t pay a penny in tax, whereas my footballers pay more than half their income in tax.
Gordon Taylor
There’s a great deal of women in film school. I was not the only woman in my class at UCLA. When I went through the Sundance program, it was half women and half men.
Gina Prince-Bythewood
On the second half of ‘Under Pressure,’ I talk about my family, and there are voicemails on my phone from when I was on the road that actually make up the second half of the nine-minute song. I transcribe them and rap them as if I were my sister, my brother, or my father.
Logic
The new millennium began with a great global dream. World leaders gathered at the United Nations in 2000 and adopted, among others, a historic goal to reduce poverty by half by 2015. Never in human history had such a bold goal been adopted by the entire world in one voice, one that specified time and size.
Muhammad Yunus
Art teaches you the philosophy of life, and if you can’t learn it from art, you can’t learn it at all. It shows you that there is no perfection. There is light, and there is shadow. Everything is in half tint.
William Morris Hunt
Hot yoga is something that I forced myself to get into. When I first did it, I thought, ‘How on earth am I going to get through an hour and a half of this?’ because I was so hot.
Caroline Flack
You could be worth $2 billion today and a half a billion tomorrow. It doesn’t take much for this to disappear overnight.
Patrice Motsepe
There can be no great courage where there is no confidence or assurance, and half the battle is in the conviction that we can do what we undertake.
Orison Swett Marden
Searching is half the fun: life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party.
Jimmy Buffett
I like young actors because they’re so unspoiled, not like some of those actors who are about half an hour into their fifteen minutes of fame by the time they get to me.
John Hughes
I am not one for half measures or half-hearted efforts.
Jay Inslee
George W. Bush attended the intelligence briefing every day. Obama has not even attended half of them. He sends surrogates. That to me is significant.
Rush Limbaugh
A half marathon is a good way to have a bit of fun and race against those girls and learn a bit more about them. The world half marathon is a world championship at the end of the day and it’s important. I’ve win it twice and it’s a quality event.
Paula Radcliffe
I lost 80 percent of my wealth and then gave away over half of the rest. So I’m a man of modest means now. But if you budget carefully and watch your expenditures, you can get by on a couple billion dollars.
Ted Turner
When you have the chance to present yourself vocally, you realize a kind of brand develops around that vocal, and you start to see the public consciousness of you is only about one half of your brain.
Josh Groban
We seem, as it were, to have conquered and peopled half the world in a fit of absence of mind.
John Robert Seeley
The purpose of satire has been rightly stated as to strip off the veneer of comforting illusion and cosy half truth, and our job, as I see it, is to put it back again!
Michael Flanders
I got quite bored, serving in the bar. Since I was there, the customers wouldn’t talk about women, and with half their subject matter denied them, it was: horses, silence; horses, silence.
Bernadette Devlin
I’ve been doing this for seven and a half years. I’ve been just bustin’ it, trying to break in as an artist in this business. For me, it’s still just about the work. I get the scripts and I’m all about that. I don’t really even have an idea what that’s going to be like.
Josh Holloway
I grew up in Kingston, Jamaica, as the youngest of four children and the only girl. My father died when I was only a year and a half. He was killed in a car accident when he was 26.
Ann-Marie Campbell
I had been playing for about a year and a half when the Beach Boys formed. When our folks went to Mexico on business, we would take the food money they had left us and we would rent instruments.
Carl Wilson
At my age, I don’t buy but a half a loaf of bread, you know?
Merle Haggard
It is three and a half hours long, four characters wide and a cesspool deep.
John Jay Chapman
Some women can be fooled all of the time, and all women can be fooled some of the time, but the same woman can’t be fooled by the same man in the same way more than half of the time.
Helen Rowland
I didn’t really get into golf until I was about 14. My mom and dad were taking lessons from a pro an hour and a half from our farm in Cohuna, Australia. When they got home, I’d ask my mom to explain everything they learned – drills and all.
Stuart Appleby
Now about those ghosts. I’m sure they’re here and I’m not half so alarmed at meeting up with any of them as I am at having to meet the live nuts I have to see every day.
Bess Truman
Nowadays, you have to sell, like, half a million or a million records just to break even.
Maynard James Keenan
I’m half living my life between reality and fantasy at all times.
Lady Gaga
And I’m a slow writer: five, six hundred words is a good day. That’s the reason it took me 20 years to write those million and a half words of the Civil War.
Shelby Foote
My family came in 1635 from England and settled in Williamsburg. Shortly after, they split up; half went to New England and half stayed in Virginia. I’m a Virginian Ballard.
Robert Ballard
I think Francis at half form is better than anybody els

I think Francis at half form is better than anybody else by 50%, you know? I think it’s just that he has never… he has a late pick of the things that are ambitious enough for him.
John Milius
My dad worked so hard. He slept in his own bed maybe half the nights of the year because of road assignments, but even when he was home, he was covering games. It put a lot of pressure on my mom. She brought in her parents to help out, and it took a village to raise us. I was lucky.
Joe Buck
I had four sandwiches when I left New York. I only ate one and a half during the whole trip and drank a little water. I don’t suppose I had time to eat any more because, you know, it surprised me how short a distance it is to Europe.
Charles Lindbergh
My heart is half Puerto Rican, half Canadian. That is how I feel.
Roberto Alomar
Women’s tennis is two sets of rubbish that lasts only half an hour.
Pat Cash
I want to work with Song Joong Ki sunbae again who I worked with in ‘Vincenzo.’ I learned so many things from Song Joong-ki sunbae but it’s regrettable that we mainly filmed together only in the second half.
Kwak Dong-yeon
When I was young, I was supposed to study in the afternoon, and 4 – 5:30 P.M. was playtime. The entire day would revolve around that time. We would play anything – kabaddi, cricket. Those one and half hours would feel like 5 minutes.
Sushant Singh Rajput
Americans are big boys. You can talk them into almost anything. Just sit with them for half an hour over a bottle of whiskey and be a nice guy.
Nguyen Cao Ky
Half of the troubles of this life can be traced to saying yes too quickly and not saying no soon enough.
Josh Billings
Quantum Mechanics and General Relativity are both accepted as scientific fact even though they’re mutually exclusive. Albert Einstein spent the second half of his life searching for a unifying truth that would reconcile the two.
Roy H. Williams
I don’t think I knew that much about camera placement and working with actors when we did ‘Half Nelson.’
Anna Boden
You get a painting idea, and you go do that. You get a cinema idea, and you go in to do that. The difference is, even though the paintings might take some time to make, with cinema you are booked for a year and a half, minimum.
David Lynch
I would love to see more women directors because they represent half of the population – and gave birth to the whole world. Without them writing and being directors, the rest of us are not going to know the whole story.
Jane Campion
The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful if there were no dark valleys to traverse.
Helen Keller
After almost half a billion dollars spent on the computer registration system for Obamacare, the website coughed, sputtered, and appeared to descend into an immediate coma as millions tried to log on. One reason is that the Obama administration never fully tested it.
Jonathan Turley
‘SNL’ is the first real job I’ve held for more than a month and a half.
Hannibal Buress
I probably tweet every other day, which I know isn’t half as much as some people.
Cory Monteith
‘The Fault in Our Stars’ is a beautiful film that’s really positive. The second half gets sad, but it’s always positive.
Ansel Elgort
Stress eating is huge – I did a lot during lockdown, and I think that’s half the battle. We give ourselves such a hard time, our internal voice is so aggressive and we need to start being kinder to ourselves.
Davina McCall
He can’t decide whether to leave his visor half open or half closed.
Murray Walker
I’ve never been more in love with anyone nearly half my age than I am today. I’d get married in a minute if I weren’t still married to somebody else.
Rod Stewart
Sometimes that is why you might even stay in the bathroom for even half an hour, making that water running all over, just singing.
Dennis Brown
While I filmed the ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ series for eight and a half years, I had never had much time to read, except for screenplays of the episodes.
Chuck Norris
If I am playing 18 ball, I aim to see how I can get my strike rate to 150-160. After 6-14 overs, you need to break down, that if you play half balls, then how much runs you need to get on the board.
Ajinkya Rahane
I was, like, 22 years old. I had half a million dollars sitting in the bank. I had no expenses. Life was great.
Charlie Shrem
I remember, my first season was 1999, and I must have crashed about 13 times in that first year. But then, in the second season, you crash about half as much and then, in the third year, even less again.
Guy Martin
I cannot stand for more than half an hour in one place.
Lech Walesa
Let us believe neither half of the good people tell us of ourselves, nor half the evil they say of others.
John Petit-Senn
What I’ve said before, only half in joke, is that everybody in Ireland is famous. Or, maybe better, say everybody is familiar.
Seamus Heaney
The energy of live theater is indescribable. You are just in the moment for an hour and a half.
Adrianne Palicki
The first half of the 20th century belongs to Picasso, and the second half is about photography. They said digital would kill photography because everyone can do it, but they said that about the box brownie in 1885 when it came out. It makes photography interesting because everyone thinks they can take a picture.
David Bailey
My mind was always very cluttered, so I took great pain

My mind was always very cluttered, so I took great pains to simplify my environment, because if my environment were half as cluttered as my mind, I wouldn’t be able to make it from room to room.
Leonard Cohen
If you wait for customers to tell you that you need to do something, you’re too late. Good business leaders should be half a step ahead of what customers want, i.e. they don’t actually quite know they want it. That’s what innovation’s about. With Plan A, we didn’t wait for the consumers to tell us.
Stuart Rose
The cup of Ireland’s misery has been overflowing for centuries and is not yet half full.
Boyle Roche
My mom, well, she’s half Greek, half German-Italian; born in England. She’s just a nomad. She loves Middle Eastern style, Indian style, so much so that she ended up having Indian babies.
Hannah Simone
I don’t half love being in my forties! You feel more grown-up and can say ‘no’ to things without feeling you’re letting the whole team down. You don’t have to worry about pleasing other people all the time. You just feel more comfortable in yourself.
Kathy Burke
I meet people at book signings. My record now, for signing, is ten and a half hours in one sitting.
David Sedaris
There’s something about the rhythm of walking, how, after about an hour and a half, the mind and body can’t help getting in sync.
Bjork
Mike and Heather and I rapped once or twice in New York and then we all wound up on a train together on the way out to Maryland. I think it was about a month and a half from the time we got cast until the time we shot the thing.
Joshua Leonard
I’m not sure whether I’ve been happy. After my last book tour, I sat on my balcony with a cup of tea. I thought: ‘You can’t rewind the movie. I’ve spent more than half my life in the Middle East. There have been great moments of horror and depression and loneliness.’
Robert Fisk
The computer cuts my production time in half. I love it.
Scott Adams
Pitching is 80% of the game and the other half is hitting and fielding.
Mickey Rivers
Before doing fieldwork in Middle Egypt, I analyzed satellite imagery to determine exactly where I wanted to go. Within three weeks, I found about 70 sites. If I had approached this as a traditional foot survey, it would have taken me three and a half years.
Sarah Parcak
I did a Coca-Cola commercial when I was about two and a half years old, and then me and my family were extras in a bunch of Westerns. I loved dressing up and stepping into this imaginary world, and it was fun to get outside of my tiny little town with a bunch of movie weirdos.
Jesse Plemons
If you give an audience a chance they will do half your acting for you.
William Hazlitt
If sexual intercourse, as the poets tell us, began in 1963, it was another decade and a half before the American political system began to take notice.
Michael Kinsley
We all understand the economics of the Super Bowl – 10 or 12 minutes of the ball in motion will be stretched into three and a half hours or more of money-making commercials.
George Vecsey
Covid time was not a fun time, I’ll say that much. There was probably a week and a half there that was pretty miserable. And obviously I wouldn’t want anyone to have to go through that.
Lindsey Horan
Remember, half the doctors in this country graduated in the bottom half of their class.
Al McGuire
Whether we’re up 2-0 early in the second half, or we’re up 1-0 with 10 minutes left in the game, my mind-set is the same when I come in the game. It’s to help keep that lead, whatever way I can.
Lindsey Horan
I put on 15 kg for my role as an amateur wrestler in the first half of the Marathi film Natrang.’ Then, I lost 17 kg for the second half of the film where I play a nachya,’ an effeminate character in traditional Marathi tamasha. The weight gain took 40 days and I lost weight in the next 40 odd days.
Atul Kulkarni
Any education that matters is liberal. All the saving truths, all the healing graces that distinguish a good education from a bad one or a full education from a half empty one are contained in that word.
Alan K. Simpson
I feel being an actress is probably not half as difficult as being a mother, and I do not know when I will be ready for that kind of a decision.
Freida Pinto
I set the time on my iPhone to be 30 minutes late, so I’m only an hour and a half late to appointments now.
Bill Hader
I’m not comically oriented. I get angry and I start complaining and then people start laughing. I don’t even want them to laugh half the time.
Adam Carolla
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
Winston Churchill
Cardio is a nice way to start the morning, man. Whether you sit on the bike for half an hour or throw on two jumpers and just sweat, it’s good to get up, get the body active, put on your headphones, and just pedal away.
Anthony Joshua
I love being one half of a romantic couple.
Julianna Margulies
I’m not so naive as to think that everybody always succeeds, right? I mean, half of Shakespeare’s stories are tragedies – right?
Michael J. Saylor
There is great beauty in going through life without anxiety or fear. Half our fears are baseless, and the other half discreditable.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Before every performance, you need at least half an hour to focus on what you are about to do: the walk-on and walk-off, the lyrics, how you are going to sing it – like, the original or bring your own personal flavour to it – how are you going to make it the best.
Jessica Mauboy
I am half Bengali and half Irish by birth.
Amala Akkineni
Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than hal

Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time.
E. B. White
Half of the equation is men, and right now, unfortunately, men are running the majority of corporations, so we have to make sure that if that is the case, that they are respectful and honor women for their true accomplishments.
Gretchen Carlson
I thought that, when I came to New York, that I would have a very life here for three months or three and a half months. And my impression is that it won’t be so quiet as I wanted.
Mario Vargas Llosa
Japan has only 100m people. Asia has 4bn. At least one-third, maybe nearly half, will become middle class, and this is a big opportunity for Japanese businessmen.
Tadashi Yanai
I do not know if she was virtuous, but she was ugly, and with a woman that is half the battle.
Heinrich Heine
Half a truth is better than no politics.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Here’s good advice for practice: go into partnership with nature; she does more than half the work and asks none of the fee.
Martin H. Fischer
But it is my happiness to be half Welsh, and that the better half.
Richard Cobden
It was amazing that during rehearsals, without any of the costume on, the character was there complete. It just happened. Half the time, I didn’t know I was doing it.
Peter Mayhew
Being a dancer and a singer gave me some advantage with regards to having a stage presence. I always take my timing from the audience because they are half of my act.
Rita Rudner
I would love to do the therapist on ‘Two and a Half Men’ again or just work with Charlie Sheen.
Jane Lynch
I was a millionaire twice over and half again before I was twenty-one. I stole every nickel of it and blew the bulk of the bundle on fine threads, gourmet foods, luxurious lodgings, fantastic foxes, fine wheels, and other sensual goodies.
Frank Abagnale
I wish I could remember where I put things. I spend half my life looking for my keys. With the other half I look for my glasses.
Sara Paretsky
If I wanted, I could have ruled half of Bombay.
Dev Anand
I judge when I need a top-up of Botox by looking in the mirror to see if I can move more than half my forehead.
Trinny Woodall
I went to Catholic high school for half a year and religion wasn’t the cool thing to talk about even at a catholic high school. It never came up.
Mandy Moore
I was nice to the people in the Philippines for the two and a half years I was there, because I knew eventually I’d have to kiss up to them so my grandchildren could have toys.
Don Rickles
Unequal funding resources also results in unequal educational opportunity when you consider studies that show that one half of low income students who are qualified to attend college do not attend because they can’t afford to.
Bobby Scott
One of the best things – and something I’m grateful for every time I walk onto a film set – is my six and a half years on Dawson’s Creek and the experience it afforded me in how to get comfortable with the camera.
Michelle Williams
He tosses aside his paint-pots and his words a foot and a half long.
Horace
Compared to what we ought to be, we are half awake.
William James
My fibula was cracked in half to where it was a clean break, and it was poking at the skin, to where it could have been a compound fracture. My Achilles tendon was crushed like a soda can, the whole top of my foot was ripped off the bone, and the ankle was lodged up into my shin, on both sides.
Rich Swann
The United States was seriously defeated in Iraq by Iraqi nationalism – mostly by nonviolent resistance. The United States could kill the insurgents, but they couldn’t deal with half a million people demonstrating in the streets.
Noam Chomsky
I think every day there is some new actress comes out and inspires me to do something else… like Hilary Swank. After she did Boys Don’t Cry, I felt this yearning to go out and be even half as good as she was.
Elisabeth Moss
My melons are twisted every bleeding morning at about half past five when I’m up with the little ones!
Shaun Ryder
A man will turn over half a library to make one book.
Samuel Johnson
Coming to the growth potential in financial services, there is enough data to show that, usually, financial services grow about twice or two and a half times of what the economy, the GDP growth rates.
Ajay Piramal
If you get a chance to play with great players, that’s half the battle.
Charles Barkley
They’ve lived here now for more than half of their lives, and they raised a family here and now have grandchildren here… It has become their home, but at the same time, for my parents, I don’t think either of them will ever consciously think, ‘I am an American.’
Jhumpa Lahiri
You have to have faith in your own qualities; that is part of being a footballer: being strong in your head. That is more than half of the quality you need to be a football player.
Olivier Giroud
Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don’t mean to do harm. But the harm does not interest them.
T. S. Eliot
I feel that women - without wishing to foster any stric

I feel that women – without wishing to foster any strict separatist notions, homo or hetero – indeed have a need for their own publications and organizations. Our problems, our experiences as women are profoundly unique as compared to the other half of the human race.
Lorraine Hansberry
Believe half of what you see and only some of what you hear, unless you hear it from me.
Chris Daughtry
I went from 250 to, like, 175 in three and a half, four months. And then I ended up graduating with honors. I went from a 2.4 to a 3.06 in a year. It’s funny how those two are related. I don’t want to say that if you lose weight, you’ll get smarter, but… well, it worked for me.
Jay Pharoah
I therefore set to work, and after two and a half years of not inconsiderable labour I now have the privilege and the satisfaction of accompanying the early volumes of the series with this preface.
James Loeb
Norway is a small country, about half the size of Sweden, but it has a very good film climate because they have municipal cinemas, so even in the smallest towns you have a cinema that shows art house films from all over the world.
Stellan Skarsgard
I feel like after acting, the other half of why I love this business is the opportunity to work with and meet people who inspire you. That it pays my rent is a good bonus.
Aaron Yoo
Our cellar home had a kitchen and a combination bedroom and half bath, which meant we had a sink next to the bed. We had no refrigerator, no shower or tub, and no privacy. My parents shared the bedroom with my sister and me.
Lou Holtz
I never lifted a weight in my life. Why am I going to do steroids? That’s not going to do me any good. We didn’t have any weights in our clubhouse. We had one exercise bike and that was for the guy who tweaked his hamstring. And that thing didn’t even work half the time.
George Brett
Once I had a steel job for half of a day. I never went back to collect my pay.
Art Rooney
And when a woman’s will is as strong as the man’s who wants to govern her, half her strength must be concealment.
George Eliot
It has been well over half a century and I’m glad to say we have taken the right path from authoritarianism to democracy and this is a road of no return.
Chen Shui-bian
Many of us spend half of our time wishing for things we could have if we didn’t spend half our time wishing.
Alexander Woollcott
In the land of the skunks, he who has half a nose is king.
Chris Farley
Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can’t, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.
Robert Frost
‘The Practical Heart’ was published one week before the World Trade towers collapsed. Book reviewing and all else in our culture stopped dead-still for half a year. I went on the book tour anyway. But I felt like the apostle Paul going unto the catacombs where scared believers hid and prayed.
Allan Gurganus
I am travelling half the year around the world, every year, so coming home is one of the most beautiful things.
Andre Rieu
I’m half Jewish, but no one believes me because my looks lean a little WASP-y… It’s sometimes hard for me to get the roles I’m drawn to.
Armie Hammer
Poets lose half the praise they should have got, Could it be known what they discreetly blot.
Edmund Waller
I’m as anxious as any viewer would be to see what Temple is going to do next. All I know is that in the second half of the season, he’s going to have more sexual tension developing. And it’s a great cast – they’re all Broadway actors except for me. I aspire to that.
Sean Patrick Thomas
Life is half spent before we know what it is.
George Herbert
I still get a lot of material but I find that as one gets older you get more fussy. You know you’re going spend a year or a year and a half on this and you know there are only so many films in you so you get a little bit more selective.
Norman Jewison
I create women characters by watching the female staff at my studio. Half the staff are women.
Hayao Miyazaki
Killing yourself is a major commitment, it takes a kind of courage. Most people just lead lives of cowardly desperation. It’s kinda half suicide where you just dull yourself with substances.
Robert Crumb
So far is it from being true that men are naturally equal, that no two people can be half an hour together, but one shall acquire an evident superiority over the other.
Samuel Johnson
I’m half deaf. I have nerve damage and a constant ringing in both of my ears, and there are certain times and conditions when I can hardly hear at all.
James Nachtwey
It would be nice if the poor were to get even half of the money that is spent in studying them.
Bill Vaughan
Some people use one half their ingenuity to get into debt, and the other half to avoid paying it.
George Dennison Prentice
When you come together with your other half, you immediately experience a sense of wholeness and completeness.
Andrew Cohen
In America most everybody who’s Italian is half Italian. Except me. I’m all Italian. I’m mostly Sicilian, and I have a little bit of Neapolitan in me. You get your full dose with me.
Al Pacino
It is the greatest mistake to think that man is always one and the same. A man is never the same for long. He is continually changing. He seldom remains the same even for half an hour.
George Gurdjieff
The deep, personal material of the latter half of your life is your children. You can write about your parents when they’re gone, but your children are still going to be here, and you’re going to want them to come and visit you in the nursing home.
Alice Munro
Immigration is the issue that tells us who is with us a

Immigration is the issue that tells us who is with us and who is against us; there’s no question about it. And it’s very simple to understand why – half of all Latinos over 18 years of age were born outside the United States. It really makes no sense to attack them and criticize them if you want their vote.
Jorge Ramos
One half of my life has put the other half in the grave.
Pierre Corneille
Half of acting is you’re very intimidated, overcoming your fears, letting yourself be vulnerable in front of people and that sort of stuff.
Travis Fimmel
I think we’re getting to the point where everyone’s getting fat and everyone’s getting allergic, or claims to be allergic to something and people can’t walk from their front door to their car without a bottle of water in their hand because they have to hydrate every three and half steps.
Adam Carolla
Half of the time, I’m walking around a construction site, then I’m transitioning into the evening, having drinks with the girlfriends or meeting with my husband and then racing back home to put the kids to bed. I have less time, so I’m a much more efficient decision maker.
Ivanka Trump
When I was born I was so surprised I didn’t talk for a year and a half.
Gracie Allen
The Indians on board said that thence to Cuba was a voyage in their canoes of a day and a half; these being small dug-outs without a sail. Such are their canoes. I departed thence for Cuba, for by the signs the Indians made of its greatness, and of its gold and pearls, I thought that it must be Cipango.
Christopher Columbus
He’s so slow that he takes an hour and a half to watch 60 Minutes.
Edwin Edwards
Having covered some half a hundred cities, towns, villages, and wide spots in the road during the last tow years, George and I fairly wallowed in the comfort of our own home base.
Martin Milner
Out of fifty mathematical papers presented in brief at such a meeting, it is a rare mathematician indeed who really understands what more than half a dozen are about.
E. T. Bell
Women are half the population and they know how to take care of themselves, if they are only given access to health care.
Cynthia Nixon
I never read the life of any important person without discovering that he knew more and could do more than I could ever hope to know or do in half a dozen lifetimes.
J. B. Priestley
No one would choose to be jerked randomly off task again and again until you have half a dozen things you’re trying to get done, all at the same time.
Marilyn vos Savant
I was in jail four and a half years. When I came out, I continued the same struggle against injustice, but instead of using weapons, I began to use art and cinema.
Mohsen Makhmalbaf
I’m absolutely strict about it. When I land, I put my watch right, and I don’t care what I feel like, I will go to bed at half past eleven. If that means going to bed early or late, that’s what I live by. As soon as you get there, live by that time.
David Attenborough
Growing up in northern California has had a big influence on my love and respect for the outdoors. When I lived in Oakland, we would think nothing of driving to Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz one day and then driving to the foothills of the Sierras the next day.
Tom Hanks
I’m functioning on a lung and a half, but I have proved that it’s possible to challenge yourself.
Stefanie Powers
At least half the mystery novels published violate the law that the solution, once revealed, must seem to be inevitable.
Raymond Chandler
Almost half of the population of the world lives in rural regions and mostly in a state of poverty. Such inequalities in human development have been one of the primary reasons for unrest and, in some parts of the world, even violence.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
More than half of Guatemalans are pureblooded Indians, descendants of the proud Maya-Quiche tribes. In their mist-shrouded villages, the Indians worship the corn god and the rain god, only vaguely concerned with the political entity known as Guatemala.
Stephen Kinzer
It’s fun working on the set… I usually work about 10 and a half hours a day, and I also study about five of those hours. It can be tiring, but it’s fun!
Mila Kunis
I was about half in love with her by the time we sat down. That’s the thing about girls. Every time they do something pretty… you fall half in love with them, and then you never know where the hell you are.
J. D. Salinger
Celebrating failure is key. Half of what we do fails, at least.
Nancy Dubuc
Most critical writing is drivel and half of it is dishonest. It is a short cut to oblivion, anyway. Thinking in terms of ideas destroys the power to think in terms of emotions and sensations.
Raymond Chandler
Those who still think listening isn’t an art should see if they can do it half as well.
Michael Ende
One thing I learnt was that you don’t have to spend all day shooting: you can get it done in half an hour if you’re that talented as a cameraman.
Aneurin Barnard
I am half Bengali and half Marathi.
Abhijit Banerjee
First and foremost, when I think of him – I’m prejudiced; I worked for the guy for six and a half years – when I think of him, I think of him first and foremost as an idea politician.
John Podesta
The Nautilus was piercing the water with its sharp spur, after having accomplished nearly ten thousand leagues in three months and a half, a distance greater than the great circle of the earth. Where were we going now, and what was reserved for the future?
Jules Verne
There are half a dozen subjects that I return to time and time again, and that doesn’t bother me. Because most of my favorite writers do that, to hunt down the same topic or theme from different directions each time.
David Bowie
Today we’re faced with over 500 casualties, a cost of over $200 billion. And it could rise – the casualties could go into thousands and the cost could go over half a trillion – if we stay there for years.
Dennis Kucinich
I really do see it as the start of the second half of m

I really do see it as the start of the second half of my career.
Al Jarreau
We worked very hard to make the lyrics suit the music. I can’t, like Elton John, for example, compose by lyrics. Elton has a great talent for that. Whatever you give him, including your questions, he composes in half an hour and makes a great song out of it.
Rick Wright
Keep well; that is the half of wisdom and of happiness.
Emile Zola
I started to write a new editor not too long ago and had it about half done after two days.
Bill Joy
Eight years ago, you may remember Hillary and I were rivals for the Democratic nomination. We battled for a year and a half. Let me tell you, it was tough, because Hillary was tough. I was worn out. She was doing everything I was doing, but just like Ginger Rogers, it was backwards in heels.
Barack Obama
I work out two, two and a half hours a day. For ‘Immortals,’ it was body-weight stuff: crunches, pullups, and martial arts-based cardio.
Henry Cavill
Among doctors in general, I think more than half support what I’m doing.
Jack Kevorkian
I was already on pole, then by half a second and then one second and I just kept going. Suddenly I was nearly two seconds faster than anybody else, including my team mate with the same car.
Ayrton Senna
Every man is half God, half man; he is both spirit and flesh. That is why the mystery of Christ is not simply a mystery for a particular creed: It is universal.
Nikos Kazantzakis
I didn’t actually rob anyone but once I was kidnapped by two older boys for half a day and they were trying to get me to steal or mug someone.
Ashley Walters
We’re the first not-white family to ever live in the governor’s mansion. My son-in-law is Puerto Rican. I have a beautiful little granddaughter who is half Korean and half Latina. I’m the only white guy in the house.
Larry Hogan
The violinist is that peculiarly human phenomenon distilled to a rare potency – half tiger, half poet.
Yehudi Menuhin
I wished that I could have been down there because Paul actually wanted me to do the tour with him, but then he realized that it just wouldn’t be right. It wouldn’t be a solo tour anymore. It would look like just half of KISS.
Eric Carr
Bewitched is half of everything.
Nelly Sachs
I have spent more than half a lifetime trying to express the tragic moment.
John Locke
Baking is about multi-tasking. If you are organized and prepared, that’s half the battle.
Johnny Iuzzini
Don’t sleep too much. If you sleep three hours less each night for a year, you will have an extra month and a half to succeed in.
Aristotle Onassis
I used to work in Macon, Georgia and Spartanburg, South Carolina where the studio was about half the size of your living room.
Ernie Johnson Jr.
But I do know this: that the two and a half years that I’ve been at HUD, I am absolutely convinced that some of the best workers in the world are in Federal Government.
Alphonso Jackson
I am a big foodie, so much so that I eat in every half an hour. This is the secret of my glowing skin.
Deepika Padukone
The moving finger writes, and having written moves on. Nor all thy piety nor all thy wit, can cancel half a line of it.
Omar Khayyam
Campaigns are crazy things. They’re half startup, half enterprise.
Harper Reed
We’ve seen in the last half century an incredible shift. This is just an extraordinary time to be alive.
Neale Donald Walsch
For the first half of my adult life, I was a Democrat.
Alphonso Jackson
The English language has a deceptive air of simplicity; so have some little frocks; but they are both not the kind of thing you can run up in half an hour with a machine.
Dorothy L. Sayers
The 6th of August in the morning we saw an opening in the land and we ran into it, and anchored in 7 and a half fathom water, 2 miles from the shore, clean sand.
William Dampier
Women hold up half the sky.
Mao Zedong
In November 2008, the day of the presidential election, Israeli military forces invaded Gaza and killed half a dozen Hamas militants. Well, that was followed by a missile exchange for a couple of weeks in both directions.
Noam Chomsky
If you look at comparative figures, the last two episodes of ‘Six Wives of Henry VIII’ were watched by 4m. Graham Norton, who is very funny, gets 3m. Johnny Vaughan’s comedy, which I have never seen but people say isn’t very good, got less than half the viewers of ‘Six Wives.’
David Starkey
I am convinced that 100 years from now, people will talk about Elliott Carter as one of the most important figures in the second half of 20th-century music.
Daniel Barenboim
Let discernment in matters of fashion and entertainment determine who should get the vote, and half the country would be disenfranchised.
Howard Jacobson
To be honest, it was slavery. Nobody should have any ro

To be honest, it was slavery. Nobody should have any romantic ideas about working underground. It’s very, very dangerous. You always knew you were living in danger. You were on your hands and knees half the day.
Dennis Skinner
I’m half Puerto Rican and every Friday we have rice and beans and chicken in my house – so that’s like a very Latin staple. It’s just so comforting. I look forward to every single Friday because I just can’t wait for my rice and beans and chicken.
Victoria Justice
I spent, as you know, a year and a half in a clergyman’s family and heard almost every Tuesday the very best, most earnest and most impressive preacher it has ever been my fortune to meet with, but it produced no effect whatever on my mind.
Alfred Russel Wallace
I have rooms full of little dongly things and don’t want any more. Half the little dongly things I’ve got, I don’t even know what gizmo they’re for. More importantly, half the gizmos I’ve got, I don’t know where their little dongly thing is.
Douglas Adams
And then when I found my sound, it took me two and a half weeks to find my sound and when I did I pulled out all the stops, all the stops I could find.
Jimmy Smith
There have only been about a half dozen genuinely important events in the four-billion-year saga of life on Earth: single-celled life, multicelled life, differentiation into plants and animals, movement of animals from water to land, and the advent of mammals and consciousness.
Elon Musk
You could write your fingers off for 25 years… and never get the kind of hearing you could get from shooting off your mouth on television for a half hour every week.
Jack Germond
Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don’t know which half.
John Wanamaker
We have three billion people, half the world’s population today, living on less than two dollars a day.
James Wolfensohn
Half my life is an act of revision.
John Irving
As a dancer, I’ve always checked my body constantly: ‘Am I having a good day, or am I having a fat day?’ I am probably more critical of myself than anyone else. I am very tiny – 5’1 and a half inches – so there’s nowhere for weight to hide.
Bonnie Langford
I grew up in Vancouver, man. That’s where more than half of my style comes from.
Seth Rogen
I am thankful that Brooklyn, a community of more than 2.6 million people of which nearly half speak a language other than English at home, stands as a shining example of how immigration and diversity have made us a safer and stronger place to live, work, and experience the American dream.
Eric Adams
My first reaction when I watched Les Miserables was, ‘Wow, my hair looks good!’ They put half a wig in, and I was always kinda worried it was gonna make my head look twice as big!
Ellie Bamber
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
Half the time I feel like I’m appealing to the downer freaks out there. We start to play one downer record after another until I begin to get down myself. Give me something from 1960 or something; let me get up again. The music of today is for downer freaks, and I’m an upper.
Wolfman Jack
If I liken the Pacific War to a football match, I can say to you that the first half is over, we have kicked off after the interval, and we are going to carry the ball into enemy territory for a smashing victory.
John Curtin
Belgium is half French-speaking and half Flemish, and I was born on the French side. So we spoke it a lot – like, in kindergarten, it was almost all French. But then I moved to New Zealand when I was 10, where we obviously spoke English all the time, so I lost the French a little bit.
Stella Maxwell
When you’re in love it’s the most glorious two and a half days of your life.
Richard Lewis
I believe this government cannot endure permanently, half slave and half free.
Abraham Lincoln
I don’t care half so much about making money as I do about making my point, and coming out ahead.
Cornelius Vanderbilt
Don’t be condescending to unskilled labor. Try it for a half a day first.
Brooks Atkinson
I learned different ways of working out. I learned a lot about my body. Let me just say that Arnold Schwarzenegger had 20-inch biceps when he did his first film, and when I did ‘Saala Khadoos,’ being a vegetarian, I managed 18 and half inches.
R. Madhavan
It is not true that people are naturally equal for no two people can be together for even a half an hour without one acquiring an evident superiority over the other.
Samuel Johnson
When my mother had to get dinner for 8 she’d just make enough for 16 and only serve half.
Gracie Allen
Music is half the film.
Matthew Vaughn
When you stand for something, you’ve got to stand for it all the way, not half way.
Kevin Gates
I started college Pre-Med. That lasted about half a semester.
Peter Krause
Because I enjoy training, obviously what comes with that is if you haven’t been training, or you’re not feeling like you’re in great shape, then the last thing you want to do, like anyone, is to be seen by millions half naked.
Kelvin Fletcher
Never hate a song that’s sold a half million copies.
Irving Berlin
Thus, biologically speaking the American people are literally only half an immigrant people.
Samuel P. Huntington
If I ever completely lost my nervousness I would be fri

If I ever completely lost my nervousness I would be frightened half to death.
Paul Lynde
My dad is Caucasian, and my mom is African American. I’m half black and half white. Being biracial paints a blurred line that is equal parts staggering and illuminating.
Meghan Markle
When I got into the second half of ‘Dragon Ball,’ I had already become more interested in thinking up the story then in drawing the pictures. Then I started to not place much emphasis on the pictures.
Akira Toriyama
