I think directors should be confident in their leadership capabilities. I think directors should be confident in what they want to do. -Philip Seymour Hoffman

When you have real power you don't threaten. People know what your capabilities are. -Dennis Kucinich

Most people are overconfident about their own abilities. That is probably a good thing. But we would be horrified if a physician's aide engaged in heart surgery. -Andrew Lo

I did not particularly enjoy modeling. I felt I was only utilizing 10 or 20 percent of my abilities. In India, it's just another job. -Freida Pinto

I will aim to restore the Japan-U.S. alliance and Japan's strong diplomatic capabilities. Japan can't pursue a strong foreign policy without strengthening its alliance with the United States. -Shinzo Abe

Every person is endowed with God-given abilities, and we must cultivate every ounce of talent we have in order to maintain our pinnacle position in the world. -Ben Carson

My working life has always been wrapped up in doing my job to the best of my abilities and doing the best for my family. It is not a contest between the two. -Johann Lamont

I find writing very difficult. It's hard and it hurts sometimes, and it's scary because of the fear of failure and the very unpleasant feeling that you may have reached the limit of your abilities. -Tony Kushner

My wife happens to be probably the greatest working woman in comedy. I can't think of anyone who even approaches her achievements and her abilities. -Nick Offerman

Traditional local media are adding local search capabilities to their sites so they can share in the local search traffic and ad revenues in the local markets they serve. -Marc Ostrofsky

It's neither my job nor within my capabilities to save people. But a book sure can try. -Lauren Myracle

I think reality TV for dancers has changed for the better. There are more opportunities and the platforms that we are being given are better. We have more job security and TV is allowing different levels of dance to come through to the forefront. People can now take their abilities and turn them into brands and make these top dollars. -Laurieann Gibson

We worry about appearing awkward in a presentation. But up to a point, most people seem to feel more comfortable with less-than-perfect speaking abilities. It makes the speaker more human – and more vulnerable, meaning he is less likely to attack our decisions or beliefs. -John P. Kotter

Rousseau ranks among the great educational theorists of the modern era, even if he was the last man to put in charge of a classroom. Young adults, he thought, should be allowed to develop their capabilities in their distinctive way. -Terry Eagleton

The foundation of a strong economy and job creation begins with providing every child in America with the best possible education, including students with disabilities. -Jared Polis

It's critical to show that we can meet our commitment to students with disabilities without raising taxes and without increasing the deficit. In the past, there's been strong support for full funding and I'm still hearing that from many of my colleagues. -Jared Polis

Well, no American wants to in any way hurt our capabilities to national defense, but that doesn't mean an unlimited amount of money, and a blank check for anything they want at any time, for any purpose. Not at all. -Chuck Hagel

The government, for example, has determined that black people (somehow) have fewer abilities than white people, and, so, must be given certain preferences. Anyone acquainted with both black and white people knows this assessment is not only absurd but monstrous. And yet it is the law. -David Mamet

As the mother of a son with disabilities, I try to keep an eye out for news that affects people in the large community of which he is a part. -Judy Woodruff

I look at my voice and my abilities as a gift. I don't feel that I can even take any credit for it, but it's such a huge presence in my life. It is my life. It's my identity, it's everything. And it's given me a great deal of joy and a sense of purpose – I can't imagine my life without it. -Emmylou Harris

The Marshall Plan was after destruction, and the U.S. came to our help and obviously this was very, very important for the future of Europe. I think now we have all the capabilities of doing it on our own and, in a sense, we have to. -George Papandreou

Many people with physical disabilities have romantic lives and good marriages to partners who see past their disabilities and recognize all of the things they can do. -Jeanne Phillips

When I hire actors I believe in their abilities. -Sean Durkin

There are a lot of downsides to being male. We age faster and die younger. But give us this: we're lifetime baby-making machines. Women's reproductive abilities start to wane when they're as young as 35. Men? We're good to go pretty much till we're dead. -Jeffrey Kluger

Founded when Abraham Lincoln believed education could lead the nation out of its darkest days, Ohio State now provides a powerful platform of interdisciplinary academic programs, world-class scholars, outstanding students, and extensive research capabilities. -Gordon Gee

I was always led to believe you should take care of yourself, trust in your abilities and you're the author of your own destiny. -Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

I just got my work visa to shoot 'American Horror Story,' and my official status is 'alien with extraordinary abilities.' -Lizzie Brochere

We've lost these qualities, these abilities to do something by hand. Some illustrators have it still, but it's just not art. We have photography. We have cameras and computers that do it better and faster. -Gerhard Richter

We owe it to our children to equip them with all the capabilities they'll need to thrive in the limitless world beyond the classrooms. -Naveen Jain

Deterrence is still fundamentally about influencing an actor's decisions. It is about a solid policy foundation. It is about credible capabilities. It is about what the U.S. and our allies as a whole can bring to bear in both a military and a nonmilitary sense. -C. Robert Kehler

A lot of white-collar work requires less of the routine, rule-based, what we might call algorithmic set of capabilities, and more of the harder-to-outsource, harder-to-automate, non-routine, creative, juristic – as the scholars call it – abilities. -Daniel H. Pink

I happen to be extremely left-brained; my instinct is to draw a chart rather than a picture. I'm trying to get my right-brain muscles into shape. I actually think this shift toward right-brain abilities has the potential to make us both better off and better in a deeper sense. -Daniel H. Pink

In many professions, what used to matter most were abilities associated with the left side of the brain: linear, sequential, spreadsheet kind of faculties. Those still matter, but they're not enough. -Daniel H. Pink

There are estimated to be fewer that 50 prodigious savants worldwide. If we were brought together, it would be disappointing in the sense of us having different abilities. One thing that would make me feel united with them would be the sense of us having grown up in isolation. -Daniel Tammet

It's obvious we can't all be a Gully Foyle, but most of us energize at such a low level, so far short of our real capabilities, we could all be more, do more. -Alfred Bester

Whenever anybody gets involved in politics, its always exciting for me because we take for granted our freedoms and our abilities to effect change through political activism. -Emily Saliers

I try and open a few doors to the mind, encourage people to embrace change and to stretch their capabilities. -Max Walker

My life goal is to see the world's one billion people with disabilities embraced and encouraged by the church. -Joni Eareckson Tada

Like all good citizens, the elderly and people with disabilities want to eradicate waste and fraud from government, but helping people with special needs meet their basic needs doesn't fit this description. -Joni Eareckson Tada

While religious tolerance is surely better than religious war, tolerance is not without its liabilities. Our fear of provoking religious hatred has rendered us incapable of criticizing ideas that are now patently absurd and increasingly maladaptive. -Sam Harris

It feels amazing to be a role model for people with and without disabilities. -Lauren Potter

I am on the International Board of Best Buddies, and I am also working with Special Olympics, and with The Arc to help people with disabilities become more independent and more included in their communities. -Lauren Potter

I was recently appointed by President Obama to the President's Committee for People with Intellectual Disabilities. I am so excited that the President trusts me to advise him on things that are important to people with disabilities! -Lauren Potter

The challenge to people like me is, how do you use your capabilities and resources to help support things that are important to you, whether it's the arts or education or homelessness? -Brian Moynihan

I believe the structure of 'House of Leaves' is far more difficult to explain than it is to read. And while I'd like to lay claim to some extraordinary act of originality, truth is I'm only taking advantage of capabilities inherent in everyone. -Mark Z. Danielewski

I don't like the word 'strong,' because a strong character is never an interesting character. A character is made interesting by their vulnerabilities and their weaknesses. -Helen Mirren

I played football in the ninth and 10th grade. I looked a lot like Joe Namath, so I think my looks got me there more than my abilities. -John Travolta

If you watch the news, you see politicians use human vulnerabilities to get in and earn people's trust. -Morena Baccarin

When I was younger I did karate and martial arts, and I think it's really cool for girls to have those kinds of abilities. -Rebel Wilson

All my family has very good mathematical abilities – like, so dorky. I was the dork then in school – on any maths exams I'd get 100%. I just knew how to do maths and most people would hate it, but for some reason it just came. -Rebel Wilson

I'm trying to solidify a long-term career, because I have no other skills and no other abilities. -Martha Wainwright

One of my favorite things to do is formulate powers for a character, then come up with their corresponding weaknesses and liabilities. And I delight in world-building: melding the supernatural with the natural, then tweaking and polishing until it feels organic. -Kresley Cole

The college that takes students with modest entering abilities and improves their abilities substantially contributes more than the school that takes very bright students and helps them develop only modestly. -Derek Bok

I often think about the many remarkable things that my personal computer can do which I never ask it to do. I probably use a small fraction of its capabilities. I often wonder if the same dynamic occurs with our capacity for creativity. -Geoffrey S. Fletcher

I turned down as many roles that I thought were beyond my abilities as I did ones I thought weren't good enough. -Joel McCrea

For a football coach, there's nothing that matches the pain of a team not playing up to its capabilities. -Joe Greene

The human brain is a product of natural selection. In the face of scarcity, our hominid great-great-uncles were unable to compete against our sapient great-great-grandparents' abilities to build more elaborate mental models and orchestrate their bodies' movements in more sophisticated ways. -Justin Rosenstein

I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. -Roger Ebert

A creative writing workshop will contain students whose ambitions and abilities, whose conceptions of literature itself, are so diverse that what they have in common – the desire to write – could almost be considered meaningless. -Rachel Cusk

Europe unified its monetary policy through the euro before it unified politically, therefore sustaining member countries' abilities to pursue the kind of independent fiscal policies that can strain a joint currency. -Amity Shlaes

I have more concerns about potential risks and vulnerabilities than most people. -Nouriel Roubini

For me, I never ever felt the ownership or any identity with any community of disabilities. I didn't grow up being told that I was a disabled child. -Aimee Mullins

People presume my disability has to do with being an amputee, but that's not the case; our insecurities are our disabilities, and I struggle with those as does everyone. -Aimee Mullins

I was a journeyman chef of middling abilities. Whatever authority I have as a commenter on this world comes from the sheer weight of 28 years in the business. I kicked around for 28 years and came out the other end alive and able to form a sentence. -Anthony Bourdain

We should find inspiration in the senses that already exist and try to copy them and apply them to us. If we compare our senses to the senses of other animals and species that we don't have, we can get ideas for new abilities that we can adapt to humans by applying cybernetics to the body. -Neil Harbisson

It is important to distinguish between the power of the Internet to make the great change it can, and the limits and vulnerabilities of that change without real-time political mobilization deployed globally to protect those who venture out, especially in closed societies, into the heady new vistas it offers. -Naomi Wolf

Acting has always been a way for me to express myself, and show all my vulnerabilities and flaws through my characters. -Alexia Fast

Men and women are equally intelligent, but separate factors, such as the abilities to focus, be collaborative and take other people's views into account, allow you to be successful. -Hanna Rosin

Clinically speaking, depression is a pessimistic sense of your own capabilities, and despondent lack of energy. -Jane McGonigal

The idea that the mind can extend even beyond the body is an intriguing one, and is bound to become more pressing as we increasingly develop technologies that augment our natural abilities. -Julian Baggini

When I was a kid, I had trouble at school because of my learning disabilities. Carving is my body compensating for the lack of other skills. -Willard Wigan

Some claim that computers will, by 2050, achieve human capabilities. Of course, in some respects they already have. -Martin Rees

I want to thank my parents for somehow raising me to have confidence that is disproportionate with my looks and abilities. -Tina Fey

I don't mind rude people. I want people that I can make money with, so if their executional abilities are good, and they're arrogant and rude, I don't care. -Kevin O'Leary

I do believe everyone on this earth is an artist – some people more than others. But I do believe we are all artists in a certain way. We all have unique abilities. There are people who are meant to make it their life, and that is a different kind of person who would choose to be on that path. -Melora Hardin

I can't wait to do a fully improvised script again, to find people who are really comfortable and into it. It's about the capabilities of the people you're working with, what are their strengths and weaknesses. Some of the most brilliant actors need the spine of the text to work off of, and there's no shame in that; they're actors, not writers. -Lynn Shelton

God wants to free us from ourselves, and there's nothing like suffering to show us that we need something bigger than our abilities and our strength and our explanations. -Tullian Tchividjian

I think that I've learned to relax, and trust in and hire very talented people, and trust in their abilities a little more. -Mark Romanek

I realized very early in life what my abilities and limitations were, and foreign languages was definitely one of my limitations. With strenuous effort, I just barely passed my French class at Harvard so I could graduate. -Michio Kaku

I'm a Christian woman, but I believe in human rights. I do not go into people's bedrooms. I appoint people based on their capabilities, not their sexual orientation. -Portia Simpson-Miller

My abilities on the computer are limited pretty much to iTunes and YouTube. I check my email as much as anybody, but I'm more old-fashioned in a certain sense. -Josh Hartnett

We as a nation have no choice but to conserve fuel to the best of our abilities or be prepared for harsh measures like steep price increase, if the need so arises. -Veerappa Moily

People remember my last name because it's different, and people remember me in meetings because I dress differently from other people just because I'm a woman. Those kinds of things give you an opportunity and a spotlight, so use that to your advantage. Use it as a platform to demonstrate your knowledge and your capabilities. -Padmasree Warrior

I always tell women to use the fact that we offer a different point of view in a room full of men, to their advantage. Because we often stand out, we gain a unique platform to demonstrate our knowledge and capabilities. -Padmasree Warrior

The evolving social and digital media platforms and highly innovative and relevant payment capabilities are causing seismic changes in consumer behavior and creating equally disruptive opportunities for business. -Howard Schultz

Lebanon is a small country, weak, an army with very humble capabilities. -Hassan Nasrallah

I guess I want very much to be recognized for my abilities, for the work I put in, and yet it's still always there – who my parents were. As much as I love my parents, if that was the last thing ever said about me – that I was their daughter – I would be disappointed that my contributions weren't strong enough on their own. -Jamie Lee Curtis

I never try to pander to an audience, and I'm really not concerned with my image. I'm far more interested in stretching my abilities as an actor. -Tom Selleck

Disabled people need more invested in their education, housing, job training, transportation, assistive technology, and independent-living facilities. Governments earn back this investment – and more – by making people with disabilities economically productive citizens. -Jesse Ventura

When I started acting, it was like a double identity crisis – your basic crisis, compounded by people saying, 'there goes Robards' kid, Bacall's kid.' Now I realize, sure, that gets your foot in the door, but once it's there, it's your foot. I'm not bothered anymore. I'm confident of my abilities. -Sam Robards

Marketers spend millions developing strategies to identify children's predilections and then capitalize on their vulnerabilities. Young people are fooled for a while, but then develop defense mechanisms, such as media-savvy attitudes or ironic dispositions. Then marketers research these defenses, develop new countermeasures, and on it goes. -Douglas Rushkoff

As Apple continues to release new styles of netbooks, laptops, and even desktops with untold movie-watching and game-playing capabilities, I wouldn't be surprised to see the iPhone operating system running on them – and the Macintosh eventually becoming a thing of the past. -Douglas Rushkoff

Nothing can be compared to the great beauty and capabilities of a soul; however keen our intellects may be, they are as unable to comprehend them as to comprehend God, for, as He has told us, He created us in His own image and likeness. -Saint Teresa of Avila

A lot of roles for people with disabilities are quite patronising. It's a real pity when they are just used to give dull PC kudos to a drama, or when they're wheeled on in a tokenistic way without any real involvement in the plot. -Mark Haddon

There's innovation in Linux. There are some really good technical features that I'm proud of. There are capabilities in Linux that aren't in other operating systems. -Linus Torvalds

I had a prodigious life, living in a grown-up world when I was a child. But I think my abilities were about perceptiveness, and they were about examining psychology and examining people and relationships. -Jodie Foster

Neurologically, I'm a quadriplegic, so virtually everything about my work has been driven by my learning disabilities, which are quite severe, and my lack of facial recognition, which I'm sure is what drove me to paint portraits in the first place. -Chuck Close

There are so many artists that are dyslexic or learning disabled, it's just phenomenal. There's also an unbelievably high proportion of artists who are left-handed, and a high correlation between left-handedness and learning disabilities. -Chuck Close

Political ignorance helps explain Americans' perpetual disappointment with politicians generally, and presidents especially, to whom voters unrealistically attribute abilities to control events. -George Will

Obedience opens the door to the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost. And the spiritual gifts and abilities activated by the power of the Holy Ghost enable us to avoid deception – and to see, to feel, to know, to understand, and to remember things as they really are. -David A. Bednar

With my natural communication abilities, I could probably gather a crowd even without the Spirit. -Francis Chan

The two things I understand best are stand-up comedy and martial arts. And those things require an ultimate grasp of the truth. You have to be objective about your skills and abilities to compete in both. -Joe Rogan

Unprecedented technological capabilities combined with unlimited human creativity have given us tremendous power to take on intractable problems like poverty, unemployment, disease, and environmental degradation. Our challenge is to translate this extraordinary potential into meaningful change. -Muhammad Yunus

I think that everyone has something about themselves that they feel is their weakness… their 'disability.' And I'm certain we all have one, because I think of a disability as being anything which undermines our belief and confidence in our own abilities. -Aimee Mullins

If we want to discover the full potential in our humanity, we need to celebrate those heartbreaking strengths and those glorious disabilities we all have. It is our humanity and all the potential within it that makes us beautiful. -Aimee Mullins

We aren't handicapped in any way except by what other people think. Focus on people's abilities. I can't be on 'American Idol,' but there's all kinds of stuff I can do. -Marlee Matlin

If we could honestly promise young couples that we knew how to give them offspring with superior character, why should we assume they would decline? Common sense tells us that if scientists find ways to greatly improve human capabilities, there will no stopping the public from happily seizing them. -James D. Watson

Pixar's short films convinced Disney that if the company could produce memorable characters within five minutes, then the confidence was there in creating a feature film with those abilities in story and character development. -John Lasseter

I cannot transfer my abilities to anyone, but I can think of quicker ways with which to help people develop numerical aptitude. -Shakuntala Devi

A big ego means that you have some confidence in your abilities, really, and that you're prepared to take the risk of trying them out. -Brian Eno

I don't feel my capabilities in cookery are as big as my desire – as with so many aspects of my life. -Anna Chancellor

We all have our secrets. We all have our vulnerabilities. -Brett Dalton

When I travel around the globe, I try as hard as I can to represent the NBA and the game of basketball to the best of my abilities. I get to go around the world and not only share the game but also my philanthropic work. Building a hospital in the Congo is one of the proudest achievements of my life. -Dikembe Mutombo

It remains to be seen the extent to which the critical needs of seniors in low income high rises, people with home medical needs and those with disabilities have been adequately planned for and met during widespread power outages. I fear the answers. -Sheri Fink

My mother taught me that to maximize your philanthropic potential, you need to constantly challenge your capabilities and put yourself in situations that are not always comfortable. Through her example, I discovered that there is no more beautiful way to live a life than to live a life of service. -Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen

I don't know the capabilities of our enemies. But I found it quite easy to circumvent security at certain phone companies throughout the United States. So if an inquisitive kid can do it, why can't a cyberterrorist do it? -Kevin Mitnick

My hacking involved pretty much exploring computer systems and obtaining access to the source code of telecommunication systems and computer operating systems, because my goal was to learn all I can about security vulnerabilities within these systems. -Kevin Mitnick

The explosion of companies deploying wireless networks insecurely is creating vulnerabilities, as they think it's limited to the office – then they have Johnny Hacker in the parking lot with an 802.11 antenna using the network to send threatening emails to the president! -Kevin Mitnick

Hackers are becoming more sophisticated in conjuring up new ways to hijack your system by exploiting technical vulnerabilities or human nature. Don't become the next victim of unscrupulous cyberspace intruders. -Kevin Mitnick

People don't realize that we cannot forecast the future. What we can do is have probabilities of what causes what, but that's as far as we go. And I've had a very successful career as a forecaster, starting in 1948 forward. The number of mistakes I have made are just awesome. There is no number large enough to account for that. -Alan Greenspan

I do not understand where the backing of Bitcoin is coming from. There is no fundamental issue of capabilities of repaying it in anything which is universally acceptable, which is either intrinsic value of the currency or the credit or trust of the individual who is issuing the money, whether it's a government or an individual. -Alan Greenspan

Tax increases slow economic growth. Why would you raise taxes? We need to reform spending, the tens of trillions of unfunded liabilities can never be funded by tax increases, that can only be fixed by reducing spending. -Grover Norquist

We should all strive to be extraordinary, and that starts with a focus on our own capabilities instead of those of our opponents. -Don Yaeger

The 18,000 NASA employees are full of galactic talents and abilities and are ready to accomplish whatever they're directed to do. -P. J. O'Rourke

There is a certain amount of dissatisfaction that goes with knowing your time, talent and abilities are not being properly used. -Zig Ziglar

I wrote 'Mr. In-Between' very quickly when I was about 23. I wrote the penultimate chapter, then realised I'd done something which was written to the best of my abilities. I panicked. I hesitated to finish the final chapter and went into withdrawal for three years. I decided to pick it up again after I went drinking with author Tim Binding. -Neil Cross

I learn something new everyday about myself as an actor, my capabilities, how far I can stretch myself, throw out emotions I never knew I had. -Sophie Turner

I've been a huge fan of Hal Ashby forever. And I think that the distinctive thing about 'Coming Home' is the love story, and how – kind of emotionally real it is, and how these two characters allow each other to see their – kind of vulnerabilities. And it's great because it's a love story that's not really that cheesy, either. -Jonathan Levine

Others can challenge and motivate us, but we must reach down deep into our souls and call forth our God-given intelligence and capabilities. We cannot do this when we depend on the efforts of someone else. -James E. Faust

There are lots of people with mental health disabilities, and that's just the way their life is; it's not like you see it in the movies. -Andy Behrman

After doing a bunch of movies as a stuntman, I realized that being a stuntman, you are in the shadow of the actor, and they don't get to see your true ability, and I wanted people to see that it was really me doing those stunts, and it was really my true abilities. -Tony Jaa

When I work on a movie, I never aim for records, collections or the number one position. I always concentrate on my work and look for ways to improve my acting abilities. I also advise my co-stars not to concentrate on these pretty issues and just focus on acting. -Mahesh Babu

I am capable of much more. I guess every artist feels that way. If you are satisfied, you begin to stagnate. I want to grow as an actress every day. There are so many things you can learn, and you can improve upon your skills and abilities every day. -Madhuri Dixit

The common thread for everything I do is this idea of a Web-services architecture. What does that mean? It means taking components of software and systems and having them be self-describing, so that you can aim them, ask them what their capabilities are, and communicate with them using a standard protocol. -Bill Gates

Having an infant is difficult. It's a lot of work, and I didn't hire any help because I overestimated my own abilities. -Megan Fox

Assets put money in your pocket, whether you work or not, and liabilities take money from your pocket. -Robert Kiyosaki

Our brains are either our greatest assets or our greatest liabilities. -Robert Kiyosaki

Sometimes I wonder if I'm as famous for my wheelchair and disabilities as I am for my discoveries. -Stephen Hawking

Every situation I have ever been in I have been trained for, and I dealt with it to the best of my abilities. -Marcus Luttrell

The late 20th century had just enough communication abilities to allow superstar-ness and communality to happen. It was a musical renaissance that rivals the visual one that happened in the 1400s. -Daryl Hall

I was given the task of I.P.L. Chairmanship which I tried to perform to the best of my abilities. The tournament was organised well despite all the controversies. The stadiums were jam-packed, which proved that I.P.L. was still popular. -Rajeev Shukla

To me, stretching the capabilities of my imagination is a crucial aspect of writing fiction; you could think of it as a mental form of athleticism. -Julia Glass

My goal is to create friend machines. Friendly genius machines. Machines with genius capabilities. -David Hanson

Chinese brands will face many obstacles when marketing to Western consumers. Beyond the associations with poor quality and unsound environmental practices, they generally do not have the marketing capabilities or budgets to build powerful global brands. -Nirmalya Kumar

It was the Obama administration that cut a faux deal with the Iranians that will not disarm Iran of its nuclear capabilities, and will in fact accelerate their nuclear development. -Ben Shapiro

Primarily affecting low-information voters and members of the mainstream media, Obama Worship Syndrome attributes impossible capabilities to Obama's political opponents, finds excuses for every Obama failure in everyone around him and praises the president as the finest politician – nay, human being – of our time. -Ben Shapiro

When I entered federal parliament at the end of 2007, I was appointed parliamentary secretary for disabilities. -Bill Shorten

The human race is a remarkable creature, one with great potential, and I hope that 'Star Trek' has helped to show us what we can be if we believe in ourselves and our abilities. -Gene Roddenberry

It's worth knowing more about the complicated environmental and genetic factors that could explain why traumatic brain injuries lead to long-term disabilities in some people and not in others. -Anne Wojcicki

When the Internet came along, at first it was just a medium for moving text around – books first, then pictures, finally video. Each time the bandwidth expanded, so did the capabilities of the medium, and each time it happened, the Internet cannibalized preexisting formats. And each time, those formats had to adapt. Or die. -David Gerrold

What I like to call 'journalism of depth' is the media that regards the collective conscience of the masses to be its point of departure. It is the media that believes, as a matter of principle, in the potential capabilities of the people and respects their choices. -Wadah Khanfar

To measure the success of our societies, we should examine how well those with different abilities, including persons with autism, are integrated as full and valued members. -Ban Ki-moon

By including children with different learning abilities in mainstream and specialized schools, we can change attitudes and promote respect. By creating suitable jobs for adults with autism, we integrate them into society. -Ban Ki-moon

Since the beginning, HTC has focused on developing strong research and development capabilities and keeping a close eye on consumer, market and technology trends. -Cher Wang

Every person – with his or her own skills, abilities and uniqueness – can contribute to others and bring great joy to those that fortune has not smiled upon. -Shari Arison

It may seem like sort of a waste of time to play 'World of Warcraft' with your son. But you're actually interacting with each other. You're solving problems. They may seem like simple problems, but you're solving them. You're posed with challenges that you have to overcome. You're on a quest to gain certain capabilities. -Vint Cerf

No matter our age, circumstances, or abilities, each one of us can create something remarkable of his life. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Yes, education is the catalyst that will hone and sharpen our talents, skills, and abilities and cause them to blossom. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Despite the Obama administration's proclaimed commitment to global Internet freedom, the executive branch is not transparent about the types and capabilities of surveillance technologies it is sourcing and purchasing – or about what other governments are purchasing the same technology. -Rebecca MacKinnon

I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom – how great is that? -Soledad O'Brien

The most successful politicians are the ones who embrace their best traits while turning their liabilities into loveable attributes. And yet, many a candidate tries to run as something they aren't simply because the strategy dictates it. -Chuck Todd

On 'Idol,' you have to show off your vocal abilities, so I stuck to the ballads, so I'm glad my first single is 'Tonight' so I can show off my fun, young side, and what I want to do as an artist. -Jessica Sanchez

As digital communications have multiplied, and NSA capabilities with them, the agency has shifted resources from surveillance of individual targets to the acquisition of communications on a planetary scale. -Barton Gellman

The U.N. Security Council ordered Iraq in April 1991 to relinquish all capabilities to make biological, chemical and nuclear weapons as well as long-range missiles. -Barton Gellman

There are more things to worry about in the world than a messed-up audition. It's out of your hands. So often, it's not down to acting abilities but something an actor has no control over. So go in, be prepared, do your job, and go and enjoy the rest of your day. -Gregg Sulkin

I would love to play 'Wonder Woman'; I have the abilities and the strength because I am definitely not the typical Hollywood actress. -Nadia Bjorlin

You can't help but be in awe of the athletic abilities of the WWE Superstars. -Dana Davis

I always think the recipe for success for a game or any sort of a fantasy experience is to think of a character that hasn't really been explored before, who is unique and has special abilities that not everybody has, and plop them into whatever is the most interesting situation to plop them into. -Tim Schafer

I'm delighted to be joining INVESCO, an organization that has been growing both in terms of assets under management and the breadth of investment capabilities offered. I see great potential in working with the accomplished investment centers within INVESCO and providing expertise to help develop strategic solutions for our clients. -Diane Garnick

I credit my mom with inspiring in me a love of design, matched by her creative problem-solving abilities. This is a woman who could find an old, discarded piece of furniture, bring it home and turn it into something fabulous. -Candice Olson

It's rewarding to be recognized by the fans and other players for my abilities and to be able to represent the Arizona Cardinals fans from around the world. -Larry Fitzgerald

There are certain vulnerabilities and insecurities that go along with not being linked to another person in a contractual way, even if it's an unspoken contract. People in New York manage that pretty well. I prefer choice and desire over convention and limitation. -Jamie Johnson

In 2001, Texaco was bought by Chevron, and during deliberations concerning that sale, an 800 page document listing the problems and liabilities connected to Texaco was brought forward at their stockholder meeting by Amazon Watch, a non-profit dedicated to protecting the Amazon. -Peter Coyote

I am excited to think that the development of commercial capabilities to send humans into low Earth orbit will likely result in so many more Earthlings being able to experience the transformative power of space flight. -Buzz Aldrin

A hybrid human-robot mission to investigate an asteroid affords a realistic opportunity to demonstrate new technological capabilities for future deep-space travel and to test spacecraft for long-duration spaceflight. -Buzz Aldrin

Thirty percent of Americans have German blood in their family. I don't see any major difference in the engineering abilities of Americans and Germans. -Hasso Plattner

Despite global economic concerns, other nations are continuing to push forward and invest in their space capabilities. A U.S. withdrawal from the industry will only allow others to surge in their own capabilities, potentially impacting our national security and technology competitiveness in the future. -Nick Lampson

The United States of America was originally an experiment. But it was an experiment in recognizing God-given individual liberty and creating a government in which we no one is deemed better than another. And in which all of us are equal. Not equal in abilities, but equal in intrinsic worth and value. -Mike Huckabee

Regarding lack of vision or disabilities of the organ of sight, it has long been known among researchers that it is the effect of extreme cruelty in a past life. -Max Heindel

I admire Miken's exceptional engineering capabilities and was drawn to their passion for hockey and drive to be the best in all they do. -Brett Hull

The '60s was a time of unthinkabilities. -Mike Love

Considering the 'Tomorrow People' are supposed to be the next step in human evolution, I think it's a fascinating idea that they can't kill. They've evolved in all these other ways, and they have these special abilities, but they can't kill. It's a very interesting concept. I really like it. I like the idea of it. -Luke Mitchell

We're crafting versions of our TotalGuide Solution to work on both legacy devices as well as new and advanced boxes with varying levels of services based on the capabilities of the set-top box and network. -Alfred Amoroso

I believe that we are going to have a much deeper appreciation of what kinds of abnormalities in cancer cells and in the surrounding cells that feed and respond to cancers are vulnerabilities that will allow us to make better predictions of which kinds of drugs will work to treat these cancers. -Harold E. Varmus

In order to have greater visibility of the larger cyber threat landscape, we must remove the government bureaucratic stovepipes that inhibit our abilities to effectively defend America while ensuring citizens' privacy and civil liberties are also protected. -Michael McCaul

In my view, Asian countries have learnt the lessons from the past and significantly enhanced their capabilities to fend off risks. -Li Keqiang

I want to keep pushing my boundaries. One of the biggest things I learned from 'Unbroken' is that you can go a lot further than you think you can. We often underestimate our actual capabilities. -Finn Wittrock

The industrial revolution that defined the first half of the 20 century marked the start of modern business, typified by high-volume, large-scale organizations. Mechanization created a culture of business derived from the capabilities and needs of the time. -Steven Sinofsky

Knowledge created a new culture of business derived from the information gathering and analysis capabilities of first the mainframe and then the PC. -Steven Sinofsky

I've got the best job in the world; I love it. I get to meet so many interesting people, and I get to make sure that other people with disabilities can tell their own stories as well. -Stella Young

Believe me, people with disabilities are just as concerned about benefit fraud as anyone else. Money spent on those who are not in need is money that isn't being spent on vital services to support us in the community. -Stella Young

Yooralla, like most disability service organisations, is full of good people who are passionate about the rights of people with disabilities. -Stella Young

People with disabilities are simply part of diverse communities in the U.S. -Stella Young

The problem for many people with disabilities is not that we are not able to work a certain number of hours a week. It's that no-one will let us. -Stella Young

Many of us, particularly those of us with disabilities who have faced persistent discrimination throughout our lives, not least when trying to find employment in the first place, take enormous pride in our hard-fought jobs and careers. -Stella Young

We are a society that treats people with disabilities with condescension and pity, not dignity and respect. -Stella Young

We often hear that people mean well: that so many just don't how to interact with people with disabilities. They're unsure of the 'right' reaction, so they default to condescension that makes them feel better in the face of their discomfort. -Stella Young

Self esteem and a healthy body image for people with disabilities are so often hard-fought. -Stella Young

For me, and for many other people with disabilities, our status as disabled people is one of which we are fiercely proud. -Stella Young

The use of drones is rapidly transforming the way we go to war. On the battlefield, a squad leader can receive real-time data from a drone that enables him to view the landscape for miles in every direction, dramatically expanding the capabilities of what would normally have been a small and isolated unit. -Michael Hastings

I got into cars through my father. He used to work on cars. My job was to hold the light, which pretty much was the limit of my mechanical abilities. -Adam Ferrara

You need to aim beyond what you are capable of. You must develop a complete disregard for where your abilities end. Try to do things that you're incapable of… If you think you're incapable of running a company, make that your aim… Make your vision of where you want to be a reality. Nothing is impossible. -Paul Arden

In film, movies' schedules are based on three things: actors' availabilities, when are sets being built, when you can rent the place you're going to film in. -Kevin Spacey

The entire Internet, as well as the types of devices represented by the desktop computer, the laptop computer, the iPhone, the iPod, and the iPad, are a continuing inescapable embarrassment to science fiction, and an object lesson in the fallibility of genre writers and their vaunted predictive abilities. -Paul Di Filippo

Safety-net programs must make efficient use of taxpayer resources and harness the capabilities of recipients by helping them move back into the workforce. -Todd Young

With the revolution around 1980 of PCs, the spreadsheet programs were tuned for office workers – not to replace office workers, but it respected office workers as being capable of being programmers. So office workers became programmers of spreadsheets. It increased their capabilities. -Rodney Brooks

To be able to serve and to eat a whole fish, especially a trout, is part of civilized dining. This applies particularly to the young, who should take to it as soon as they can handle knife and fork; this is a fine way for them to begin taking pride in themselves and their abilities. -Julia Child

I consider anybody a twerp who hasn't read 'Democracy in America' by Alexis de Tocqueville. There can never be a better book than that one on the strengths and vulnerabilities inherent in our form of government. -Kurt Vonnegut

You can't separate me from my upbringing as a child overcoming learning disabilities and having to make my way through that. -Dannel Malloy

My father once told me when I was a young girl that I was destined to do great things. His belief in my abilities and ambition is rooted deeply in the spirit of Malawians; resilient and determined for a better Malawi and a better Africa. -Joyce Banda

Unusually for an Indian man of his generation, my father, being aware of my mother's intellectual abilities, encouraged her to go abroad by herself to obtain a Ph.D. -Venkatraman Ramakrishnan

I would like to think all our gifts and talents and abilities come from God. -Margaret Keane

I like stories where people have to face some big demons internally. It always seems to be an element of horror, because it's pretty scary to have to face yourself and the things you're most worried about: your own abilities and your own capabilities and your own level of competence in being a hero. -Scott Snyder

Before they deploy, they train for the specific operations, but there is a danger that the Army is not retaining the core of its full capabilities. -Des Browne

The idea that an independent Scotland – having separated assets and liabilities from the rest of the U.K. – would expect the rest of the U.K. to be a lender of last resort, and of course be kind to them, doesn't make any sense. -Johann Lamont

I was able to overcome my failures because I was always confident of my abilities and was sure I could achieve what I had set out for. -Anupam Kher

I decided to combine my musical background, business education and creative abilities – and go into the record business. -Alan W. Livingston

Many of my colleagues are not able to run their family budget. On the other hand, I look at some of the apparatchiks in research councils, and I have even less trust in their abilities. Good intentions have always paved the road to hell. -Andre Geim

I want to explore the existing manufacturing abilities of Indian companies and create products together. -Henrik Fisker

Life inside successful Web startups – especially the really successful ones – can be nasty, brutish, and short. As companies grow exponentially, egos clash, investors jockey for control, and business complexities rapidly exceed the managerial abilities of the founders. -Brad Stone

The true and the approximately true are apprehended by the same faculty; it may also be noted that men have a sufficient natural instinct for what is true, and usually do arrive at the truth. Hence the man who makes a good guess at truth is likely to make a good guess at probabilities. -Aristotle

Practice radical humility. Take no credit for your talents, intellectual abilities, aptitudes, or proficiencies. Be in a state of awe and bewilderment. -Wayne Dyer

I was pretty lucky to get into Berklee at all. I never really had any theory or music-reading capabilities; I was completely by ear. -Madi Diaz

The emphasis on innovation and technology in our companies has resulted in a few of them establishing global benchmarks in product design and development, manufacturing practices and human resource capabilities. However, there is no room for complacency. -Baba Kalyani

Indians have very good engineering capabilities, and that is why, if an industry focuses on innovation, you will have a far greater chance of success, rather than the model which is based on just being a production machine. -Baba Kalyani

The advantage comes out of the capability of Indian engineers and the competitiveness of their capabilities and the cost at which they can create those capabilities. -Baba Kalyani

All of us, the government, parliament, local authorities and the society must demonstrate determination and readiness to use knowledge and capabilities… toward full European integration. -Igor Luksic

Through the 'It's About Ability' campaign and with parents and other members of society, we have created a social family for children with disabilities. -Igor Luksic

Without being overtly political about it, if people with severe disabilities are calculated in societal terms purely as a monetised unit, in terms of how much they cost in terms of care, you lose an important sense of who they are and the effect they have. -Rory Kinnear

Sama means 'equal' in Sanskrit; I chose 'Samasource' because I thought it really reflected a value that I had and that I wanted the company to have, which is that everyone has equal capabilities and deserves an equal chance. -Leila Janah

The wealthy are confident in their abilities to overcome bad situations – on the job, in their personal lives, with their finances. Many have triumphed over dismal financial starts. And, unlike most of the population that hops from job to job, career to career, the wealthy are much more likely to stick with what they start. -Jean Chatzky

VCE exams do not showcase students' abilities. By this, I mean that the system fails to recognise the diversity of skills, and most subjects do not allow students to demonstrate skills in a form other than a written exam. -Alexandra Adornetto

When I'm doing the Justice League stuff, my point of view is always coming through Buddy. And he's a dad, and there's stuff about his life that I relate to with my life, and I can also take the abilities of animals, which a lot of people don't know about me. -Jeff Lemire

When you're an insecure teenager, you build walls and defenses and masks, and those are incredibly satisfying to perform and chip away at. I mean, when I was an insecure teenager, you'd have had no idea what I was insecure about because I hid it so well. Only confident people are comfortable wearing their vulnerabilities on their sleeve. -Sarah Steele

Some believe that the FBI has these phenomenal capabilities to access any information at any time – that we can get what we want, when we want it, by flipping some sort of switch. It may be true in the movies or on TV. It is simply not the case in real life. -James Comey

As we visit Mars multiple times, we will build up infrastructure on the surface to expand the capabilities and reach of humans on Mars. -Ellen Stofan

One of the questions writers bump up against in their work, whether they know it or not, is about lying. Because fiction is a form of deceit, and one's abilities are measured by how convincingly one can persuade readers that these events really happened. -Damon Galgut

Throughout our lives, God's grace bestows temporal blessings and spiritual gifts that magnify our abilities and enrich our lives. His grace refines us. His grace helps us become our best selves. -Dieter F. Uchtdorf

I was always interested in working with people with disabilities, and in high school I worked with people who had Down Syndrome. That was for an agency called AHRC, Association for the Help of Retarded Children. Then I went to college, and throughout college I volunteered for AHRC. -Meredith Eaton

I've been asked to endorse lots of different pieces of equipment. It's not necessarily that it's an awful thing to be asked to endorse something, because it's inherently a compliment to your skills, your abilities, on a level. But sometimes it's just not the right fit. -Wylie Dufresne

Explorations into chemistry were done in our basement, sometimes with friends, and my parents must have had quite a bit of confidence in my abilities when they allowed me to experiment with explosive mixtures. -Wolfgang Ketterle

Terraforming our moon will take many decades and vast abilities. Before we can begin, we'll have to master the resources of our solar system – especially transporting raw masses over interplanetary distances. -Gregory Benford

'Doom' aficionados expand their adventures as far as their imaginations and artistic abilities allow. Once players have exhausted the 'authorized' levels of 'Doom,' they can go on to explore thousands of additional unauthorized levels available in kits and on the Internet. -Marc Laidlaw

I don't have heroes, exactly, but I do have people I hold in high respect. Ronald Reagan, for example, stood for ideals that I value: integrity, patriotism and a fundamental belief in goodness and capabilities of mankind. -Diane Hendricks

True confidence is firmly planted in reality. To grow your confidence, it's important to do an honest and accurate self-assessment of your abilities. If there are weaknesses in your skill set, make plans for strengthening these skills and find ways to minimize their negative impact. -Travis Bradberry

I think that part of the reason that 'Iron Man' was so successful was that we really chose to break new ground in a new area tonally, cast wise, the way we depict the hero, what his abilities are. It felt fresh in a genre that is beginning to feel stale if it's not done with the proper amount of inspiration and a strong voice or tone. -Jon Favreau

I'm not the world's best philosopher. But I am one of the world's best strategists. I will put my strategic abilities against anybody on Earth. -Nick Hanauer

Human security recognizes the importance of individuals and that the key to ensuring growth in developing countries is to foster individual talent and abilities, build self-reliance, and put people in a position to make a broader contribution to society. Growth must be inclusive, and no one must be left behind. -Shinzo Abe

It turns out that a Nobel is also followed by other recognitions, and perhaps the most unexpected of these is that the Japan Karate Association in Tokyo has now made me an honorary 7th-degree black belt, something that, given my athletic abilities, is even more unimaginable than being an Economic Sciences Laureate. -Alvin E. Roth

And I believe only with a strong America will we defeat this radical group, this apocalyptic group called ISIS. That's why when I'm president we are going to rebuild our intelligence capabilities. And they're going to tell us where the terrorists are. And a rebuilt U.S. military is going to destroy these terrorists. -Marco Rubio

While academic abilities remain integral, it is the work ethics that form the soul of the business. -Jamshyd Godrej

It is my absolute belief that Indians have unlimited talent. I have no doubt about our capabilities. -Narendra Modi

The world has crafted a beautiful balance of collective action – common but differentiated responsibility and respective capabilities. -Narendra Modi

People in general romanticize nature, and they make it out to be something that it isn't because humans are so awful. And yes, we are absolutely screwing up this planet, but that is only because we have the capabilities to do so. Animals are not better than us. They are not nicer than us. -Elise Andrew

My father would have been impressed by Barack Obama's mind and style and grace of manner, as well as by – I'm certain – his abilities as a writer. -Christopher Buckley

Genes work with probabilities; they don't work with certainties. So most things that you're looking at with these genetic tests, it's not like you're condemned to automatically get the disease or the syndrome. There's a lot of factors in play there. -Sam Kean

Business cycles naturally entail peaks and troughs in employment, and socially responsible businesses should follow successful examples like Coca-Cola, Alcoa, Saudi Aramco, Africa Rainbow Minerals, and Google in working toward mitigating joblessness and enhancing people's abilities to earn a livelihood. -Klaus Schwab

If you support diversity and think shows should give a portrayal of what America truly looks like, then performers with disabilities must be included in that equation…People have been very good at being politically correct. -Robert David Hall

Respectfully, the civil rights movement for people with disabilities is modeled on the African American civil rights movement. I'm old enough to remember 1964. I was a junior in high school. -Robert David Hall

Do not pray for tasks equal to your abilities, but pray for abilities equal to your tasks. Then the performance of your tasks will be no miracle, but you will be the miracle. -Thomas S. Monson

If we're going to go farther from Earth, to Mars or somewhere else someday, we have to have a good understanding of the psychological impact on people. And not only psychologically, but how it affects their cognition. We're doing a lot of research on my cognitive abilities. -Scott Kelly

I am certain that Gadi Lesin's abilities and the experience he accumulated during his sixteen years in a variety of general management roles in Strauss Group in and outside of Israel will enable him, together with group management and all managers and employees of Strauss, to continue to take the group forward to further success. -Ofra Strauss

I knew a bit about the capabilities of HTML5 and have always had a preoccupation with technology. I wanted to delve deeper, to see what else it could do. The technology becomes the palette that you make the artwork with, your palette and your paint. -Chris Milk

This year-in-space mission was a profound challenge for all involved, and it gave me a unique perspective and a lot of time to reflect on what my next step should be on our continued journey to help further our capabilities in space and on Earth. -Scott Kelly

If I wasn't a model, I would never have been around interesting musicians, even had the financial capabilities to say, 'I don't have to work right now. I can sit and make my record.' -Karen Elson

WhatsApp's extremely high user engagement and rapid growth are driven by the simple, powerful and instantaneous messaging capabilities we provide. -Jan Koum

There is an amazing power getting to know your inner self and learning how to use it and not fight with the world. If you know what makes you happy, your personality, interests and capabilities, just use them, and everything else flows beautifully. -Juhi Chawla

NASA should not be developing its own proprietary version of capabilities it could purchase commercially at much lower cost, especially when we know the agency's bureaucratic tendencies will be to view the commercial versions as competitors to kill. -Newt Gingrich

The thing I would hate myself for the most or regret the most is if I did not push myself to maximize my potential and my abilities. -Milos Raonic

Even when I was much younger, whatever I did, I wanted to do it to the best of my abilities. When I came home from school, I would be the one doing my homework while my siblings would be watching TV and putting it off until later. -Eugenie Bouchard

I see Americans of every party, every background, every faith who believe that we are stronger together: black, white, Latino, Asian, Native American; young, old; gay, straight; men, women, folks with disabilities, all pledging allegiance under the same proud flag to this big, bold country that we love. That's what I see. That's the America I know! -Barack Obama

Obviously, the Philippines or any regional state can never match Chinese defense spending, but we will have to develop minimum deterrence capabilities that allow us to resist and inflict sufficient retaliation if China continues to undermine Philippine territorial integrity. -Miriam Defensor-Santiago

We want to build intelligence that augments human abilities and experiences. -Satya Nadella

Look what's going on: the Iranians are spreading military capabilities throughout the region; look what's going on in Yemen, Hizbollah, their cooperation with Assad, terror activities the world over, undermining regimes and states. -Isaac Herzog

There is a perception across the Middle East that America is weakened. I believe the perception is wrong. The United States remains the world's mightiest military, economic and diplomatic power by far, with reach and abilities beyond rival. -Ehud Barak

A lot of society tries to put people with disabilities into one cube, and when you think about it, many, many people have different types of disabilities, and you cannot put a code that applies to towards everyone – generally, they can be guidelines, but in the long run, interior designers and architects need more education on the subject. -Itzhak Perlman

I have a very simple philosophy. One has to separate the abilities from the disabilities. The fact I cannot walk, that I need crutches or a scooter or whatever it is, has nothing to do with my playing the violin. -Itzhak Perlman

Access Living is a powerful voice for people in the Chicago area who live with disabilities. -Itzhak Perlman

A very successful woman, Palin has the wherewithal to move forward consciously. What she did was move forward thoughtlessly and overconfidently, without considering that her abilities or qualifications would ever be questioned. -Rebecca Traister

We're extremely excited about the assets that Yahoo has in the areas of Sports and Finance and Email and News. You match those up with AOL, and we've just made an exponential leap in capabilities here. -Lowell McAdam

There's this very interesting and complicated connection between our environment and our genes and the traits that come out of the environment plus genes. And there's huge potential. I mean we see amazing abilities. Marie Curie, Albert Einstein. All sorts of arts, and literature and so forth. These are not typical traits of everybody on earth. -George M. Church

The NSA has the greatest surveillance capabilities in American history… The real problem is that they're using these capabilities to make us vulnerable. -Edward Snowden

You could watch entire villages and see what everyone was doing. I watched NSA tracking people's Internet activities as they typed. I became aware of just how invasive U.S. surveillance capabilities had become. I realized the true breadth of this system. And almost nobody knew it was happening. -Edward Snowden

I believe in my abilities as a fighter. -Gerry Cooney

Besides the conventional military threats, North Korean cyber capabilities are growing. -Cory Gardner

I think America is less safe on a lot fronts, and I disagree with the release of the information from Dianne Feinstein. I think she's as much a traitor to this country at this point as I thought about Edward Snowden and his release of information about other investigations and abilities from an intelligence standpoint. -Jeff Duncan

I can't think of a greater privilege than to speak out with legislation for people that can't often speak for themselves. And I know the ABLE Act will bring justice and peace of mind to millions of American families who deal with disabilities every day. -Ander Crenshaw

One of the things that we have to keep in mind on Iran is Iran is also a country with ballistic missiles, cyber capabilities. -Michael T. Flynn

We all want to not repeat ourselves constantly, and explore the limits of our capabilities. -J. K. Simmons

America has some capabilities that Israel doesn't have. And Israel cannot place their security in the hands of Barack Obama; they can't do it. -Trent Franks

Pakistan has done some really terrible things, and yet they also have facilitated our military capabilities in ways that are critical to our country. -Trent Franks

It has been my observation that the happiest of people, the vibrant doers of the world, are almost always those who are using – who are putting into play, calling upon, depending upon-the greatest number of their God-given talents and capabilities. -John Glenn

We are so accustomed to love on a human level that we find loving God for Himself either impossible or beyond our capabilities. We tend to love those who appeal to us, render us a service, or are good to us. In the degree they perform these various services, we love them. -Mother Angelica

I must not permit the evil capabilities of human nature to sour my faith in the tremendous good that is possible despite the frailty of that nature. -Mother Angelica

My parents make sure we have everything we need so that we compete to the best of our abilities. -Simone Biles

To me, when people say, 'Oh, you're a freak athlete,' it's bittersweet. It's a huge compliment to say, 'O.K., you have physical abilities that are kind of above and beyond.' But at the same time, I feel like it diminishes the mental side of the game. -Colin Kaepernick

As I travel the world, it seems that younger people identify me merely with some of the folklore in the 'Chuck Norris Facts' – those hyperbolic sayings that elevate my abilities beyond my capabilities. Others view me in light of the character I played in 'Walker, Texas Ranger' or in one of my 20 tough-guy films. -Chuck Norris

I don't set goals. Competing with a number in your head can be limiting, and I don't know what my capabilities are yet. -Ashton Eaton

I'm so lucky in my life, but I'm so unlucky in my abilities. I love art so much, but I'm unable to produce it. I can't even draw a dog that doesn't look like a horse. -Agnes Gund

As far back as 2008, the Canadian Forces brass was explicit: drones with 'all-weather precision strike capabilities' were a 'requirement' for Canada's overseas operations. -Terry Glavin

It is clearly a bad idea to try to just move games from other platforms directly over, but I'm sure we will see a lot of it, especially as the handsets surpass the hardware capabilities of previous generation consoles. -John Carmack

We keep score in life because it matters. It counts. It matters. Too many people opt out and never discover their own abilities because they fear failure. They don't understand commitment. -Pat Summitt

There were a lot of years that I was trying to do things that other people wanted me to do. But you have to follow your heart. Believe that you have a unique group of talents and abilities that are going to allow you to accomplish something in an area that interests you. Work at that and try to make some kind of contribution to your community. -Robert Kennedy, Jr.

The beauty of man's being, fashioned as he is in the fairest of forms, demonstrates the existence of the Maker, while at the same time the fact that, together with his comprehensive abilities, lodged in that fairest of forms, he soon declines and dies, demonstrates the existence of the resurrection. -Said Nursi

The divine wisdom which requires a division of labor has sown different abilities and tendencies in human nature and has enabled human beings to carry out the duty of establishing sciences and developing technology. The fulfillment of this duty is obligatory upon humanity as a whole, though not on every individual. -Said Nursi

There is research proving that deaf people have increased visual abilities. -Nyle DiMarco

When you think about the Americans with Disabilities Act and what it takes for employers sometimes to accommodate a person with disabilities, when we talk about reasonable accommodations – it's doable, but the payoff isn't always obvious right away. -Maggie Hassan

I'm going to show up and do my job to the best of my abilities every day, every week. -Brock Osweiler

I don't think you change from the time you're 16 until you die. Maybe your body changes, and you have different experiences, but I think you become a fully conscious soul with full abilities. Souls are eternal, and if you keep your marbles until you croak in your 90s or your 100s, you're the same. -Whit Stillman

Right from my childhood, I have believed in a Supreme Power. I don't know whether it has form, or it is formless. I am a high school dropout. How come life has given me so much? It's not my intelligence, it's not my abilities. This understanding makes me scared even in success. I don't own my success. Neither do I own my failure. -Pawan Kalyan

When I get economic development calls from business leaders who are considering relocating or expanding in Arkansas, the abilities of our workforce are always a critical part of the conversation. -Asa Hutchinson

People's beliefs about their abilities have a profound effect on those abilities. Ability is not a fixed property; there is huge variablitiy in how you perform. -Albert Bandura

Notifying the enemy in advance of our withdrawal dates or reassuring the enemy that we will not use certain capabilities like our ground forces should be avoided. -Jim Mattis

A-POC respects that there is a fine balance between the value of the human touch, which can be called artisanal, and the abilities of technology. I like to think of it as poesy and technology. -Issey Miyake

What your interests are has a lot to do with your natural abilities. -Lee Haney

I let the players use their abilities and what they're capable of doing. If they're capable of stealing bases, I'm going to give them the green light. I'm going to teach them to pick their spots and to get a base when they can get a base. -Ryne Sandberg

Taxpayers should demand that their states honestly assess public pension plans, accurately measure the assets and liabilities, and take steps to provide fair benefits to public employees that limit taxpayers' liability. -Elaine Chao

In terms of my development as an artist, playing Professor Sprout wasn't all that important because she is well within my capabilities as an actress. But in terms of marketability, it made an enormous difference. -Miriam Margolyes

America is composed of all kinds of people – part of the difficulty in our nation today is due to the fact that we are not utilising the abilities and the talents of other brown and black peoples and females that have something to bring to the creativity and the rejuvenation and the revitalisation of this country. -Shirley Chisholm

I imagine a day, some time in the not too distant future when children and teenagers will be able to create their own genetically engineered machines, cure the diseases of the old and find new ways to build and extend the capabilities of humanity, moving from programming software to programing the physical world, through biology. -Ryan Bethencourt

I did not grow up thinking that I wanted to be an engineer. I had read some articles about girls becoming increasingly scientifically illiterate and that girls lacked confidence in their capabilities when it came to quantitative skills. And I just thought that was kind of wrong. -Aileen Lee

My intellect was quickened at divinity school, and my abilities to discern were strengthened, and that's always valuable. -Kurt Elling

The United States should have stepped up and destroyed ISIS at its origins rather than wait until ISIS grew their capabilities and influence. -Ryan Zinke

For commercial customers, we have invested in specialist mobile-first sales capabilities, and we are building out our device-selling channel. -B. Kevin Turner

Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton both had exceptional natural abilities. Nelson Rockefeller was very good statewide but never gained national traction. -Henry Kissinger

Sometimes it takes dealing with a disability – the trauma, the relearning, the months of rehabilitation therapy – to uncover our true abilities and how we can put them to work for us in ways we may have never imagined. -Tammy Duckworth

We've got to do better at taking care of players and making sure the fans get the best of the players when they're showcasing their abilities. -Ben Zobrist

You just never give up. You do a task to the best of your abilities and beyond. -Debbie Reynolds

Married or single, you sisters possess distinctive capabilities and special intuition you have received as gifts from God. We brethren cannot duplicate your unique influence. -Russell M. Nelson

I don't think one film is enough to showcase your talent or to show your abilities as an actor. -Kriti Sanon

I could put everything I got in the bank on my abilities and skill and will, and what I'm capable of doing in the ring. -Deontay Wilder

Every character that I've chosen has made me evolve as an actor. And I am lucky that my directors have shown so much faith in my abilities. -Sushant Singh Rajput

A fighter, a real strong fighter, should always look dignified and calm, and I believe that any expression of aggression is an expression of weakness. A strong person will not be nervous and will not express aggression towards his opponent. He will be confident in his abilities and his training; then he will face the fight calm and balanced. -Fedor Emelianenko

I train and prepare for every contest the same so I can compete to the best of my abilities. -Fedor Emelianenko

My left brain has gradually 'eaten' the right-brain capabilities away. -Walter O'Brien

I have never restricted myself to my strengths and abilities, as they are unlimited, and I am still discovering them. -Arjun Kapoor

It is clear that while our Army was engaged in Afghanistan and Iraq, Russia studied U.S. capabilities and vulnerabilities and embarked on an ambitious and largely successful modernization effort. -H. R. McMaster

What we can afford least is to define the problem of future war as we would like it to be and, by doing so, introduce into our defense vulnerabilities based on self-delusion. -H. R. McMaster

Consequences of linear thinking in Afghanistan and Iraq included overestimating indigenous forces' capabilities, underestimating the enemy, and the associated expectation that the coalition could soon reduce force levels and shift to an exclusively advisory effort. -H. R. McMaster

As liberals in charge and a media question the capabilities of police, they then limply ask why there is an anti-police atmosphere or why cops are holding back. -Greg Gutfeld

I could heartily wish that every commission officer was to be previously examined; for, to my certain knowledge, there are persons who have already crept into commission without abilities or fit qualification: I am myself far from desiring to be excused. -John Paul Jones

I am very willing to admit that I have some poetical abilities, and as few – if any – writers, either moral or political, are intimately acquainted with the classes of mankind among whom I have chiefly mingled, I may have seen men and manners in a different phasis from what is common, which may assist originality of thought. -Robert Burns

IT is permeating more industries. Moore's Law knocks down simulation capabilities. We don't need wind tunnels anymore, for example. You can run experiments more quickly. -Steve Jurvetson

I have friends who have children with various disabilities, and I was able to talk to them about just sort of the struggle and the extra effort that has to be put into very commonplace things. -John Ross Bowie

I think that you find out what your boss wants you to do, and you do more. To me, that's work ethic. Because, if you demonstrate that your capabilities extend past your current job, they'll probably give you a better job. -Thom Tillis

As any successful mad scientist will tell you, energy ain't free. Popular culture tends to forget this, instead focusing on the destructive capabilities of our finely crafted death rays without noting the massive energy expenditures required to use them. -Kyle Hill

We don't know the probabilities of future events. Still, you have to take action, and so you do it on gut feeling. That's the world we live in. -Robert J. Shiller

A calling is the place where your gifts, abilities, desires, and feelings of worth all meet. When you follow your calling, you feel at home, at peace – you feel as though you're where you're meant to be. -Mike Yaconelli

People tend to treat people with disabilities sort of like they're aliens from another planet. It doesn't come from a bad place; it comes from a place of, 'I have no idea what this disability entails, and I don't want to offend anyone or make them feel awful.' -Zach Anner

I want to make sure that people know that I can only be myself – I can't be a spokesperson for people with disabilities, because everybody has a completely different experience. I'm glad that I'm able to inspire parents to see one way to deal with it, but at the same time, I tell a lot of dirty jokes. -Zach Anner

Pfizer's actually teamed up with my nonprofit organization, which is called Adaptive Action Sports. I cofounded this organization in 2005 to help people with physical disabilities get involved in action sports, go snowboarding, skateboarding. -Amy Purdy

The way I look at it is, we all have disabilities. -Amy Purdy

Our safety net must reflect our country's belief that – without exception – Americans are not liabilities to be written off but assets to be realized. -Todd Young

Because we make ourselves deaf to feedback, because we overestimate our abilities, because we become consumed with ourselves, we end up subjecting ourselves not just to the inevitable stumbles or difficulties of life but catastrophic, painful failures. -Ryan Holiday

All the great artists had their dark sides. Look at Amy Winehouse or anyone who has achieved a certain level of success. Even Adele, and the people that you wouldn't put in the same category as a gangster rapper. These women have exposed their vulnerabilities, demons, and things that have hurt them. -Kat Graham

The ADA allows persons with disabilities the opportunity to participate in the world around them. -Tammy Duckworth

I am definitely a Hillary, a Secretary Clinton supporter. I think that she's got the experience and the leadership capabilities to be the next president – and most importantly, her understanding of domestic and foreign policy and social issues. -Michael Kelly

Five years ago, we came to the realization that the camera can be used for more than capturing memories. We showed it can be used for talking. The dream for us is expanding the camera and what it can do for your life. It has capabilities beyond making memories. -Evan Spiegel

Teams need the opportunity to learn about each other's capabilities and develop productive routines. So once we get the right people on the bus, let's make sure they spend some time driving together. -Adam Grant

Luckily, I'm in a band with two other guys who really pull their own weight and have the skills and abilities to compensate for my weaknesses. -Isaac Hanson

My family's lineage, we are warriors. The McGregor clan, we are warriors all through. We are famous all through the world for our fighting capabilities of all generations. So I have no doubt that's stood to me and that led me down this path and gave me what I have. -Conor McGregor

It could be easy to get frustrated or discouraged when it comes to educating students with disabilities. But that's because there are too often artificial barriers and roadblocks that limit your ability to focus on meeting their individual needs. -Betsy DeVos

In the 2012 campaign, the president successfully transformed the most intense conservative positions into liabilities on immigration and the role of government. -John Dickerson

You can get really great reflective screens that rival e-paper at really amazing price points and with fantastic ultra-low-power capabilities. -Mary Lou Jepsen

Learning disabilities do not go away, but you learn how to adapt. You may have to work a little bit harder; it may take a long time. You just may do it differently – but you can do it. -Michelle Carter

I'm not against a border wall, OK, but go to China, and you'll see a border wall there. We need technology, we need drones, we need surveillance capabilities, and we need rapid-reaction capabilities. -John McCain

The reason that ISIL was so successful, yes, it had to do with their capabilities and prowess on the battlefield, but they were dealing with a receptive constituency in northern Iraq because of the intense hatred of the Maliki government, which of course is imposing the Shia view on them. -James Clapper

As NFL players, we have such a platform to spread the Word of God. And that is an area I don't mind speaking out on at all. As far as talking about my football skills, however, I will let my abilities and actions speak for themselves. -Calvin Johnson

There are a lot of female characters out there that, when they fall on hard times, they sort of stew in their fears and negativities and vulnerabilities. And there's something that's really truthful about that – when I've gone through hard times or breakups, I've spent a lot of time on my couch overeating and crying with friends, that's true. -Ari Graynor

I've found that one's language abilities, especially for Korean kids like me, get frozen at the age you immigrated. So I've always associated Korea with being a child and being infantilized through my inability to speak. -John Cho

If it's a cliche to say that intellectual curiosity keeps your mind sharp, your senses alert, and your capabilities cutting-edge, that's because it's true. -Adena Friedman

Nasdaq is investing in the technologies, talent, and capabilities that solve the complex challenges our clients face. -Adena Friedman

'Carol' takes place at a time the country was crawling out of the shadows of the war years, feeling the new vulnerabilities of the Cold War and conflicts within the union. -Todd Haynes

I don't want to come across as a pretty looking girl. Because it is very easy – wear good clothes, wear good make-up, and you'll look good. I know my abilities. -Disha Patani

I was introduced to 7 Charming Sisters at an Emmy Award Show event. When they approached me to become a brand ambassador, I was over the moon about working with the brand. What impressed me even more as a disability advocate is the fact that the company is dedicated to employing people with disabilities. -Jamie Brewer

I'm a huge advocate for individuals with disabilities. -Jamie Brewer

Diversity is not only color, but it also includes individuals with disabilities. -Jamie Brewer

There's a wide variety of diversity, with people that have disabilities from R.J. Mitte in 'Breaking Bad' to Danny Woodburn being a little man. -Jamie Brewer

Too often, our most vulnerable students – English-language learners, immigrants, poor kids, teenage parents, students with behavioral problems and learning disabilities – fall through the cracks. -Jared Polis

That is the culture at Deloitte: To make sure we are all maximizing the capabilities that we have. -Cathy Engelbert

I hope to be viewed and judged first and foremost by my accomplishments and capabilities as a leader – regardless of my gender. -Heather Bresch

As a working woman at the height of my career, I know age has only enhanced my professional and personal abilities. It has brought a sense of calm to the drive for success. -Bonnie Hammer

Evolving our culture to operate and think differently is no small task. We are challenging our employees to be the best of both small and big companies – they should operate with the soul and spirit of a startup, while leveraging the scale, resources and capabilities of Campbell – with the goal of ultimately becoming the biggest small company. -Denise Morrison

I've always had the upmost confidence in my abilities as well as the other guys in The Shield. We all have kind of have the same mindset as far as success, personally and professionally. -Seth Rollins

For me, I know my capabilities and the spectrum I can cover as an entertainer. -Seth Rollins

One of Trump's vulnerabilities is that he doesn't always vet his people, whether it's business partners, the dubious characters he retweets, or the foreign leaders who show up at his door. -Franklin Foer

We are excited about the prospect of working with the Google Maps team to enhance our search capabilities and to join them in their ongoing efforts to build the best map of the world. -Noam Bardin

The key thing in Northeast Asia is North Korea. They are unpredictable; they are developing their nuclear capabilities and their missiles. -Lee Hsien Loong

In order to stay healthy, recover quickly, and continue building strength and agility, I've combined different types of low-impact sports circuit exercises to maximize and expand my abilities. -Rob Gronkowski

Jobs are changing. Jobs will be about the blending of the digital and industrial capabilities. -Jamie S. Miller

The U.S. might have diminished al-Qaeda's capabilities in the border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan, but it has not diminished the threat from radical Islamist terrorists as a whole. -Pete Hoekstra

I look at the action scenes as placeholders when I arrive on a script, knowing that I'm going to expand on them when I understand the constraints of the movie, the locations of where we're shooting, the abilities of the actors, and where we want to go with the characters. -David Leitch

The notion of superhumans is using bioengineering and artificial intelligence to upgrade human abilities. If they use the power to change themselves, to change their own minds, their own desires, then we have no idea what they will want to do. -Yuval Noah Harari

Humans have two kinds of abilities: physical and cognitive. -Yuval Noah Harari

I titled the book 'Homo Deus' because we really are becoming gods in the most literal sense possible. We are acquiring abilities that have always been thought to be divine abilities – in particular, the ability to create life. And we can do with that whatever we want. -Yuval Noah Harari

Conventional companies try to find new uses for capabilities they already have. Transformers look at what the market needs and then go build it, hiring new people and/or taking people off other jobs. -Daniel Lyons

The possibilities that come with thinking about the camera as a portal into the realm of information and services are attractive not only to Snap but also to every other big player in the tech world. Facebook, for instance, has slowly been enhancing the visual capabilities of its Messenger. -Om Malik

I think I might have exaggerated some abilities in the past. Practical abilities for acting jobs you sometimes have on your CV – I have definitely exaggerated in meetings to get a job and then not been up to scratch on the day. -Daniel Rigby

I had physical disabilities as a kid. I had fine gross motor problems, so I didn't have natural dexterity in my hands. I also wore corrective braces on my legs, like in 'Forrest Gump.' -Apollo Robbins

Despite the fact that important measures such as the Americans with Disabilities Act passed only with crucial Republican support, the public – and the community of disability advocates – normally identifies this issue with the Democratic party. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Big, expensive government is not the answer for people without disabilities, nor is it for those with. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Reducing the entanglement of Big Government in order to benefit people with disabilities should be a top priority for the Republican party. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

The significant disparity in work opportunities for people with disabilities is the direct result of government programs and policies that propagate dependency. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

The ADA gave more than 50 million Americans with disabilities, just like my son Cole, the chance to live the American Dream and be defined only by their potential – not their limitations. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Throughout human history, some of our most influential inventors, entrepreneurs, and leaders have had disabilities. For example, Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, and Charles Schwab are all dyslexic, while scientist Stephen Hawking has used a wheelchair for decades. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

Often, films about people with disabilities are from the outside looking in. -Roger Ross Williams

There's always some potential vulnerabilities in any system. -Dan Schulman

What we want to do to monetize Venmo is to add more and more capabilities. Anywhere you see a PayPal merchant, you can click on that button and actually use your Venmo account to check out at that merchant. Then we'll monetize that transaction exactly the same way we monetize a PayPal transaction. -Dan Schulman

Baseball is a game based on adversity. It's a game that's going to test you repeatedly. It's going to find your weaknesses and vulnerabilities and force you to adjust. That adversity, in the big picture, is a really good thing because it shows you where your weaknesses are. It gives you the opportunity to improve. -Theo Epstein

Typically, it takes young players years to adjust to life in the big leagues and to start performing up to their capabilities. Most of the blame for this rests on these ridiculous old baseball norms that say young players are to be seen and not heard. -Theo Epstein

We've learned that musical ability is actually not one ability but a set of abilities, a dozen or more. Through brain damage, you can lose one component and not necessarily lose the others. You can lose rhythm and retain pitch, for example, that kind of thing. -Daniel Levitin

You get some confidence in your songwriting abilities and go for the essentials – guitar, bass, drums, vocals. Those are the basic band essentials that have to be in place before you go any further. -Mike McCready

Over the years, I've had a slight ebbing and flowing of confidence in my non-comedic role abilities. -Thomas Middleditch

I am planning to start a K. D. Jadhav Memorial International Championship in which I will have wrestling tournaments all over India. I will make a foundation and, through that, encourage youngsters to participate in sports activities. Jadhavji was my idol, and he inspired people like me to rise above our disabilities and achieve success in life. -Sangram Singh

Churchill faced his own diminishing capabilities and increasing irrelevance by maintaining the sense that he was the only one who could solve whatever problem was before him. He was very often wrong, of course, but then he had spent so much of his life overcoming appalling mistakes, disasters, and rejections. -John Lithgow

Do not follow anyone else's opinion of your capabilities; find for yourself what you're passionate about and chase it! -Mawra Hocane

As an actor, when you don't have a reference to pick from, you experiment, try out new things. And what comes of it eggs you on. You realize your capabilities and push your limits. -Sidharth Malhotra

You can take a team of absolute all-stars in terms of their native abilities, but if they are not working together, they are much less effective than a team where there is less native ability but a higher degree of teamwork and cohesion. -Stewart Butterfield

We continue to not only operate the International Space Station but to increase its capabilities as well as commercial contributions. -Ellen Ochoa

He who is vain and delights in his own ability is deceived by his inferiors. When he likes to bring forth arguments and kindliness, his inferiors take advantage of his abilities. -Han Fei

If nothing else, the cyber attacks that occurred during the 2016 presidential election have laid bare the very real vulnerabilities that exist across our government and the private sector. Imagine the harm that could be done if our enemies ever hack into the Department of Defense or Homeland Security. -Mike Quigley

Obamacare does much more than provide coverage to the previously uninsured – it improves the quality of coverage for all of us. Critical cancer and other health screenings are free. Women and people with disabilities or chronic conditions are no longer charged more – or priced out of the market altogether. -Jan Schakowsky

Women are the overwhelming majority of the workers providing long-term support to seniors and people with disabilities. As a result, women are the ones most affected by legislative decisions on long-term care. -Jan Schakowsky

One can only presume, despite unequivocal polling to the contrary, that Republicans believe relentlessly attacking womens' abilities to make their own health care decisions is popular and will help them win elections. I believe it is at their peril that they pursue this anti-women agenda. -Jan Schakowsky

As a state sponsor of global terrorism and supplier of weapons to terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah, Iran cannot be allowed to develop nuclear weapons capabilities. -Brad Schneider

Relying on intelligence as the chief touchstone for decisions about whether and when to attack creates a wide opening for misunderstandings, divergent interpretations, and vulnerabilities to parties with an interest in either attack or delay. -Ronen Bergman

We are Christian and Jewish and Muslim and Hindu and none of the above. We are gay and straight. We are black, brown, white, and innumerable combinations. We are young and old, female and male, with and without disabilities, urban and rural, and liberal and conservative. Every one of us is an equal American. -Sheldon Whitehouse

As we continue to drive the benefits of integrating our enterprise skills, capabilities, and experience – what we call operating as 'One Boeing' – we will find new and better ways to engage and inspire employees, deliver innovation that drives customer success, and produce results to fuel future growth and prosperity for all our stakeholders. -Dennis Muilenburg

If we ramp up capabilities in China, including additional 737-related work, the actions that we'll take are actions that ultimately allow us to grow jobs in the U.S. -Dennis Muilenburg

Standing up Global Services will accelerate our capabilities across all Boeing services and support areas – from our traditional parts, modifications, and upgrades business to strengthening our data analytics and information-based offerings. -Dennis Muilenburg

Doing 'Comedy Bang! Bang!,' you have to play at the top of your abilities, so it is so fun to get that opportunity. I've grown a lot as a performer just working with those guys. -Lauren Lapkus

If I had the science and math capabilities, I would have liked to be a vet, but I don't! I don't have those capabilities. -Carol Kane

Too many people fought too hard to make sure all citizens of all colors, races, ethnicities, genders, and abilities can vote to think that not voting somehow sends a message. -Luis Gutierrez

The environment on the 'Chewing Gum' set is where everyone can work to the best of their abilities and everyone is happy. So, if I'm not happy with something, I've learnt that you don't start flailing about; you go in quietly, and there's a conversation. -Michaela Coel

In my career, I have done more than a thousand voice-overs in commercials, cartoons, and radio shows, so I'm very familiar of my voice capabilities and its range. -Stefan Kapicic

The U.N. must have adequate resources and the right capabilities to fully engage in global peacekeeping. -Miroslav Lajcak

Success is no longer about changing strategies more often, but having the agility to execute multiple strategies concurrently. And success requires CEOs to develop the right leadership capabilities, workforce skills, and corporate cultures to support digital transformation. -Pierre Nanterme

The breadth and scale of the capabilities we provide end-to-end across strategy, consulting, digital, technology, and operations are absolutely unique in the marketplace. And this is why Accenture remains the partner of choice for the world's leading companies in executing large-scale transformation programs. -Pierre Nanterme

We've truly transformed Accenture capabilities to help our clients embrace the new, applying innovation and intelligence at the heart of their organizations. -Pierre Nanterme

Our approach to continuously investing in the scales and capabilities of our people helps us meet the needs of our clients and enhances our ability to attract the very best talent in our industry. -Pierre Nanterme

FusionX's elite team of cyber security experts works at the C-Suite level to help clients test security and see their vulnerabilities through actual replica attacks. This acquisition brings to Accenture the critical ability to help our clients assess and respond to sophisticated cyber-attacks. -Pierre Nanterme

I hope that as a professional snowboarder, Olympian, and now, a Global Ambassador for Special Olympics, I will be able to change perceptions about people with intellectual disabilities. -Hannah Teter

Women too often say to themselves, 'It's too difficult. I'm not going to get there.' I tell them: 'Listen: do not question your abilities. Dare to do what you want to do and realize that you can do it.' -Isabelle Kocher

It is such an uncertain universe out there that you have to create what I call 'real' options and develop capabilities that will enable you to deal with an environment that will change anyway. -Anand Mahindra

For India's economy to expand as rapidly and yet more sustainably than China's, we need to make our differences into virtues rather than vulnerabilities. -Anand Mahindra

I want to represent my country to the best of my abilities. I want to make Reese Witherspoon proud. -Adam Rippon

Never lose your undying belief in yourself and your abilities. -Mirai Nagasu

Since most cyberwar is conducted covertly, governments avoid any public acknowledgment of their own abilities and shy away from engaging in any sort of 'cyber diplomacy.' Statecraft conducted in secret fails to create public norms for deterrence. -Jared Cohen

Hope is not the basis for policy. Wise policymakers analyze major issues such as immigration carefully and look at facts and probabilities instead of just hoping for the best. -Laura Ingraham

It's really important to remember that disability is diversity, and that disabled actors and disabilities are something that is hugely under-represented in film. -Rachel Shenton

For us as a firm, not only from a risk mitigation standpoint but also as a point of differentiation, it is incredibly important to get consistency and the very best individuals with the capabilities to do the very best job. -Punit Renjen

Trump's campaign is not a collection of ignorant statements. It is a candidacy of hate and fear that poses serious risks to people of color, women, people with disabilities, immigrants, and LGBTQ people. -Sarah McBride

Co-innovation between a startup and an enterprise works best when each party fills a gap in the other's capabilities and when they share equitably in both the work and the rewards. -Maciej Kranz

I had a job once selling encyclopedias, and that was an interesting job because I learned a lot about people's vulnerabilities and how salesmen take advantage of them. -Jon Voight

StandWith has two main functions: first, updates which allows the caregiver to send out patient updates to their community in a simple way that eliminated dozens of texts, emails and calls. The second is tasks. A caregiver can request a task to be fulfilled and their community can self-select which they complete based off their abilities and means. -Yael Cohen

Health should be easy. The good news is that, through the increasing use of mobile devices with their real-time networking capabilities and by addressing health collaboratively in our communities, we're accelerating the 'democratization of health care.' -Bruce Broussard

Evangelical women are also large consumers of evangelical media and ministries, and their support of these organizations is crucial. Should they shun both Trump and the predominately male evangelical leadership, it may have a ripple effect in these organizations' fundraising abilities and their ministerial efforts. -Anthea Butler

TV has so many access points, so many availabilities. DVR, binge viewing. -Kevin Reilly

Given that many girls are indoctrinated to believe that they should be feminine and modest about their abilities, as well as brought up to assume that girls are not innately gifted at science or math, it is not surprising that so few can see themselves as successful computer scientists. -Eileen Pollack

I think often we like to talk about the strength of black women, and really, that can become an interesting stereotypical trap – that these women are so strong, that they don't fear anything, they don't need help, and they have no vulnerabilities. Well, that's not a human person! That takes away a lot of the humanity as well. -Jeryl Prescott

I don't have much estimation of my abilities as a director, but I found I loved class and loved process and loved practice. And so I've put together classes of actors – oh my God – since I was 21 years old, I think. -Jeff Perry

Bring your whole self to work because, that way, you can bring full ideas and the wholeness of your unique abilities. -Bozoma Saint John

I hope that my work ethic has been a model for those who do not believe in themselves or have lingering doubts about their own abilities. -Max Aaron

There's a certain point in chemistry and in calculus where I reached the end of my abilities, and I realized, 'This is where I'm stupid.' -Andrew Sean Greer

I think one in five Americans has a disability of some sort. That's 20% of the population, and yet we rarely ever see people with disabilities on-screen, and their stories and their resilience and their zest for life and their humor and their humanity. -Hong Chau

When women apply for a job, we ask ourselves, 'Am I qualified? Do I have the experience? Do I have the education? Do I have the abilities?' When a man looks at that job, he thinks, 'How much does it pay?' We need to stop second-guessing our abilities. We need to stand up and make ourselves heard. -Catherine Cortez-Masto

The beauty of any conspiracy theory is that because it can't be proved, that just makes it more 'real.' It's not a question of believing or not believing, really; it's more a question of just accepting a series of probabilities that lead to an undeniable conclusion. -Dean Haglund

'Retirement' is a dirty word. Luckily, I can carry on working until I drop, provided I retain my mental abilities. -Leslie Bricusse

When faced with an obstacle or uncertainty in your abilities, use it as an opportunity to grow your talents. -Caroline Ghosn

A budget is a reflection of our values, and as a member of the House Budget Committee, I work each year to ensure that our federal budget invests in programs that support working families, enhance our research and development capabilities, and ensure the safety and security of the American people. -Seth Moulton

The people who are inspiring and strong for me are the ones who acknowledge vulnerabilities. -Jessie Buckley

Strength, to me, is about exposing vulnerabilities and foibles and facts and people that are honest. -Jessie Buckley

We have all this very clever technology and all these abilities to manipulate the world in all these ways, yet we are faced with the very real question of whether we can be sustainable on this planet – whether or not, in fact, we can endure. -David Grinspoon

There are many, many different kinds of intersectional exclusions – not just black women but other women of color. Not just people of color, but people with disabilities. Immigrants. LGBTQ people. Indigenous people. -Kimberle Williams Crenshaw

With new technologies promising endless conveniences also comes new vulnerabilities in terms of privacy and security. And nobody is immune. -Clara Shih

We face a wide array of threats, which means we have to have a wide array of capabilities. -Mac Thornberry

Our abilities are limited only by our perceptions. -Debbie Millman

The most exciting thing I've seen is directors not only being open to actors coming in the room with different abilities but actively looking at ways that the story can be enlarged with disabled actors. -Michael Arden

People with disabilities are capable and deserve the same opportunities as everyone else. -Madeline Stuart

When I started working at NASA and understanding what the capabilities really were of the space station and the space program, one of the biggest draws for me was the ability to do experiments in space. We can do a number of experiments where gravity is actually a variable. -Kathleen Rubins

I'm honored to sit on the House Intelligence Committee and am proud to chair the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities. -Elise Stefanik

I enjoy roles that involve a task outside of my natural capabilities – for example, playing a number of musical instruments or sword fighting or cutting a suit. You have to look as though you can do it, without too much editing. -Geoffrey Rush

As we put autonomous cars on the road, connect Alexas to our lights and our thermostats, put ill-protected Internet-connected video cameras on our houses, and conduct our financial lives over our cell phones, our vulnerabilities expand exponentially. -David E. Sanger

A lot of times, we look at people who have disabilities as, 'Oh, we can't invite these people here or there.' And I hate that, because it's inappropriate. It's so weird to me when people say they don't have friends who have disabilities. -Karamo Brown

Clothing reveals what a character is trying to project as well as what they're giving away about themselves without even realizing it: their socioeconomic class; their confidence level; their vulnerabilities. -Camille Perri

At the end of the day, I know what my skill set and abilities are, and it's just going to take people a little while to recognize it. Whether that comes around or not, I'm not going to sit here in the corner and pout about it. -Demetrious Johnson

The exploration of space: Be it by humans or robots, based on the best choice for the mission and the most efficient means to return the data and science sought. Most of the time, this will mean we send robots due to cost and danger. But sometimes, we will need the irreplaceable judgment and descriptive abilities of a person on the spot. -Rick Tumlinson

We have a space agency desperately in need of purpose, whose employees and capabilities have been wasted for decades on make-work projects and dead-end PowerPoint pioneering placebos designed to do nothing more than keep the billing high. -Rick Tumlinson

I try to bring awareness, not just to CP but to all disabilities in the sense that it's knowledge. My disability gave me so much knowledge that I was able to take into 'Breaking Bad' and to grow and to learn. -RJ Mitte

People with disabilities can grow up thinking they have a weakness because they are told,You will never do this properly; you will never walk properly or talk properly.' That's all they hear. But you have to look past that. -RJ Mitte

I work with amazing organisations: I work with I'm A Performer With Disability, and I work with a clinic which tries to get opportunities for people with disabilities to work in the film and TV industry, and we're making strides, and they're making strides. -RJ Mitte

With moderate physical training, you can control anything in your body. You don't have to be an athlete to do it, and this isn't just about people with disabilities – it's about everyone. You just have to have the willpower, the mindset, and the desire to want to better yourself. -RJ Mitte

When my disease nearly destroyed me in 2009, my doctors thought I'd be lucky to regain 80 percent of my cognitive abilities. When I was at my sickest, I couldn't read or write. I could barely walk on my own or groom myself. The disease felled me physically and mentally – robbing me, briefly but intensely, of my wits, my sanity, my memory, my self. -Susannah Cahalan

I do feel sorry for the Prince of Wales, waiting and waiting, while his mother looks better and better. She's not staying on because of any concern about his abilities as a king. The Queen simply feels she must do her duty, and she's never even contemplated abdication. -Sarah Bradford

Startups, by their nature, are entrepreneurial – testing new things, launching new products, and disrupting themselves. That's why you join a startup in the first place – to create, to stretch beyond your current capabilities, and to make an outsized impact. -Jennifer Hyman

The popular dystopian vision of AI is wrong for one simple reason: it equates intelligence with autonomy. That is, it assumes a smart computer will create its own goals and have its own will and will use its faster processing abilities and deep databases to beat humans at their own game. -Oren Etzioni

There are actually very few deeply 'gifted' kids with transcendent cognitive or artistic abilities. -Alissa Quart

Plenty of black people that I know have been on 'SNL,' and they haven't been utilized to the best of their abilities. -Baron Vaughn

Sometimes, we only get to know someone as one aspect of who they are. Then you start peeling back the layers and understanding more and more about who they are – their vulnerabilities, their fears, their joys, all those other words that equal humanity. -Mara Brock Akil
