You can't get rid of it with exercise alone. You can do the most vigorous exercise and only burn up 300 calories in an hour. If you've got fat on your body, the exercise firms and tones the muscles. But when you use that tape measure, what makes it bigger? It's the fat! -Jack LaLanne

Without strength and courage it's really hard to perform at the highest levels of international figure skating, because you're alone on the ice and you only have seven minutes over two nights to prove yourself. -Scott Hamilton

I'd like to state that Spike Lee is not saying that African American culture is just for black people alone to enjoy and cherish. Culture is for everybody. -Spike Lee

The pressure isn't on my brain, but on my mouth. I realized Sam Malone said very little, he spoke in little sentences. Which is much more comfortable for me for some reason. -Ted Danson

I never thought I'd be a writer. I never thought I'd be able to read a book, let alone write one. So if books like this inspire kids to write, or even read a whole book, I think it's good. -Don Novello

These roads do not serve transportation alone, they also bind our Fatherland. -Fritz Todt

I was able to support myself by acting alone about six years ago. Until then, I was just scraping by. -Edie Falco

The Jew does not wish to be isolated. He fears being alone, without allies. -Meir Kahane

For so long as the Jew has even one ally, he will be convinced – in his smallness of mind – that his salvation came from that ally. It is only when he is alone – against all of his own efforts and frantic attempts – that he will, through no choice, be compelled to turn to G-d. -Meir Kahane

I am alone, some people help me, but, basically, I can do what I want. -Sergei Bubka

If you go long enough without a bath, even the fleas will leave you alone. -Ernie Pyle

She goes through the vale of death alone, each time a babe is born. As it is the right neither of man nor the state to coerce her into this ordeal, so it is her right to decide whether she will endure it. -Margaret Sanger

Woman must have her freedom, the fundamental freedom of choosing whether or not she will be a mother and how many children she will have. Regardless of what man's attitude may be, that problem is hers – and before it can be his, it is hers alone. -Margaret Sanger

For an adult, eating alone at McDonald's is admitting a kind of defeat. -Jonathan Carroll

What troubles me is the Internet and the electronic technology revolution. Shyness is fueled in part by so many people spending huge amounts of time alone, isolated on e-mail, in chat rooms, which reduces their face-to-face contact with other people. -Philip Zimbardo

On the stage, you alone hold the key, and on the night you have to trust that the director has inspired you enough to take the material and run with it. -Greta Scacchi

It depends on the situation. I mean, on one hand there's the argument that people should be left alone on the other hand, there's the argument to wade in a stop slaughters in places like Bosnia and Kosovo and what we probably should have done in Rwanda. -Jello Biafra

Events alone rarely provide much guide to the future. -Walter Lord

Noah and his family were the only loyal and obedient subjects to the legal power: they alone were saved. -Orson Pratt

I don't like to produce albums. I hate producing albums, as a matter of fact, because I'm an obsessed mixer and I can't leave it alone. -David Friedman

I'm the most gregarious of men and love good company, but never less alone when alone. -Peter O'Toole

Even though I have often recorded alone, I still feel the best music is made by musicians playing off each other. -John Fogerty

When I work alone, it can be like dabbling with a canvas. Maybe you paint over bits, and it starts to form its own life and lead you off in a direction. It becomes an intuitive, subconscious process. -Lindsey Buckingham

When I work alone, my process is like painting. With Fleetwood Mac, it's more like movie making. -Lindsey Buckingham

But it seems that the judging maybe they shouldn't at least see the practices all week long. That can taint the way they go into the judging and the outlook of what's going to happen, instead of just watching those four minutes and judging on those minutes alone. -Nancy Kerrigan

I alone, as the sharer of their way of life, presented a replica of childhood. -Neal Cassady

The combined results of several people working together is often much more effective than could be that of an individual scientist working alone. -John Bardeen

I remember playing football dressed in peculiar costumes with some friends in France and laughing so hard we couldn't even stand up, let alone kick the ball. -Fred Frith

I discovered that the study of past philosophers is of little use unless our own reality enters into it. Our reality alone allows the thinker's questions to become comprehensible. -Karl Jaspers

The history of philosophy is not, like the history of the sciences, to be studied with the intellect alone. That which is receptive in us and that which impinges upon us from history is the reality of man's being, unfolding itself in thought. -Karl Jaspers

But Socialism, alone, can bring self-determination of their peoples. -Karl Liebknecht

Being an actor is the loneliest thing in the world. You are all alone with your concentration and imagination, and that's all you have. -James Dean

I did all the work at the beginning up until the point where I couldn't handle the increasingly heavy art production burden alone. I needed, and got, assistance. -Joe Shuster

There is nothing like being left alone again, to walk peacefully with oneself in the woods. To boil one's coffee and fill one's pipe, and to think idly and slowly as one does it. -Knut Hamsun

I was a little doubtful about the propriety of going to the Mammoth Cave without a gentleman escort, but if two ladies travel alone they must have the courage of men. -Maria Mitchell

I would as soon put a girl alone into a closet to meditate as give her only the society of her needle. -Maria Mitchell

In any case, his judgment and set of values, acting alone or through his assistants, determine not only what is gold and what is dross but the design of the history which he creates out of the metal. The historian decides what is significant, and what is not. -Samuel E. Morison

What We want is to make it possible for our unfortunate people to live a life of industry for it is by steady work alone that we hope for our physical and moral rehabilitation. For this reason above all we have undertaken to rally our people around our ideal. -Theodor Herzl

I have never been able to grasp the meaning of time. I don't believe it exists. I've felt this again and again, when alone and out in nature. On such occasions, time does not exist. Nor does the future exist. -Thor Heyerdahl

The older I grow, the more I find myself alone. -Alberto Giacometti

By far the greatest part of those goods which are the objects of desire, are procured by labour; and they may be multiplied, not in one country alone, but in many, almost without any assignable limit, if we are disposed to bestow the labour necessary to obtain them. -David Ricardo

You ask me if I will not be glad when the last battle is fought, so far as the country is concerned I, of course, must wish for peace, and will be glad when the war is ended, but if I answer for myself alone, I must say that I shall regret to see the war end. -George Armstrong Custer

Believing that the power to destroy belongs to the Creator alone I affirm… that any theory which, when carried out, demands the annihilation of force, is necessarily erroneous. -James Prescott Joule

Although I managed my schedule to be home by late afternoon most days, basically, Roselle raised our children alone. And so I missed out on a lot of wonderful moments, missed watching my kids grow into the wonderful people they are today. -Perry Como

Very much alone in my work, I am almost jealous of it. -Yves Tanguy

The employee is regarded by the employer merely in the light of his value as an operative. His productive capacity alone is taken into account. -Leland Stanford

King Lear alone among these plays has a distinct double action. Besides this, it is impossible, I think, from the point of view of construction, to regard the hero as the leading figure. -Andrew Coyle Bradley

We cannot arrive at Shakespeare's whole dramatic way of looking at the world from his tragedies alone, as we can arrive at Milton's way of regarding things, or at Wordsworth's or at Shelley's, by examining almost any one of their important works. -Andrew Coyle Bradley

The International Brigades provided a shock force while the Republic trained and organized an army from an assemblage of individuals. The Spanish people knew they were not fighting alone. -Bill Alexander

However, as a parent, as a grandparent, as a former educator, I know that these practices alone when we are dealing with young children are insufficient. We will never control this rising epidemic without greater accountability from the food industry. -Bob Filner

What do you mean by faith? Is faith enough for Man? Should he be satisfied with faith alone? Is there no way of finding out the truth? Is the attitude of faith, of believing in something for which there can be no more than philosophic proof, the true mark of a Christian? -Clifford D. Simak

The athlete of today is not an athlete alone. He's the center of a team – doctors, scientists, coaches, agents and so on. -Emil Zatopek

With the brush we merely tint, while the imagination alone produces colour. -Theodore Gericault

And I don't have any specific steps to take because I don't start the same way every time. But there is a knowing when it's enough and you can leave it alone. -Bruce Nauman

But if we leave them alone, just satisfying ourselves with social work, economic work and the building up of a national army, it can make progress, hopefully within a short time. -Bulent Ecevit

What does it mean with regard to tactics, this fact that the proletariat of Western Europe stands all alone: that it has no prospect of any help whatsoever from any other class? -Herman Gorter

Israel is no longer a people that dwells alone, and has to join the global journey toward peace, reconciliation and international cooperation. -Yitzhak Rabin

The revolution in Russia was victorious with the help of the poor peasants. This should always be borne in mind here in Western Europe and all the world over. But the workers in Western Europe stand alone: this should never be forgotten in Russia. -Herman Gorter

The population forecast for the United States in 1970 is 170 million. The population forecast for Russia alone in 1970 is 251 million. The implications are clear. -Emanuel Celler

And then when all around grows dark, when we feel utterly alone, when all men right and left pass us by and know us not, a forgotten feeling rises in the breast. -Max Muller

In fact a lot of them I think are absolute baloney. Those Charles Olsens and people like that. At first I was interested in seeing what they were up to, what they were doing, why they were doing it. They never moved me in the way that one is moved by true poetry. -Norman MacCaig

Fortunately, many people also enjoy a stand-alone as a sample of something new, like trying the special at a favourite restaurant one night instead of going for the usual. -Sarah Zettel

FIFA's goal of making the world a better place through football cannot be achieved through our efforts alone – equally important is the power which every fan of the beautiful game has at their disposal. -Sepp Blatter

The development of beauty in chess never depends on you alone. No matter how much imagination and creativity you invest, you still do not create beauty. Your opponent must react at the same highest level. -Vladimir Kramnik

When I get into bed at night, I hope I don't get into it alone! -Calvin Klein

When you're surrounded by all these people, it can be even lonelier than when you're by yourself. You can be in a huge crowd, but if you don't feel like you can trust anybody or talk to anybody, you feel like you're really alone. -Fiona Apple

The only time I commit to conspiracy theories is when something way retarded happens. Like Lee Harvey Oswald acting alone. -Joe Rogan

You do stand alone sometimes. But my mother stood by me through all this. -Morris Dees

The secret to being a writer is that you have to write. It's not enough to think about writing or to study literature or plan a future life as an author. You really have to lock yourself away, alone, and get to work. -Augusten Burroughs

When I was working on Eye of the Beholder, I played a character who is so aloof that my whole lifestyle became very aloof. If someone knocked on my door, there was a part of me that went into a rage, because I wanted to be isolated and alone. -Ashley Judd

I have a responsibility to nurture and shepherd my talent and when I'm living the parts of my life not related to that I feel I have the right to be left alone. -Ashley Judd

The struggle is so great that the triumph over fascism alone is worth the sacrifice of our lives. -Federica Montseny

You can be around 100 people and be completely alone. People don't realize what it's really like. -Lenny Kravitz

I need to do things on my own, need to be left alone. -Henry Rollins

I look really young. I always get carded at bars. No one believes that I'm over 18, let alone over 21. -Monica Keena

All species capable of grasping this fact manage better in the struggle for existence than those which rely upon their own strength alone: the wolf, which hunts in a pack, has a greater chance of survival than the lion, which hunts alone. -Christian Lous Lange

The day after the prison was transferred to the military intelligence command, they had an entire battalion – 1,200, 1,500 soldiers – arrive at Abu Ghraib just for force protection alone. -Janis Karpinski

When I'm alone at home, I really prefer to listen to Wagner's orchestral music rather than any vocal music. I find it illuminating not to have to pay attention to voices in the recordings. -Kiri Te Kanawa

And what's more I've got no need for anyone to tell me how to do it. I am not interested. You act how you want to and leave me alone to do my own thing. -Olivier Martinez

Music, which should pulsate with life, needs new means of expression, and science alone can infuse it with youthful vigor. -Edgard Varese

The power of a book lies in its power to turn a solitary act into a shared vision. As long as we have books, we are not alone. -Laura Bush

I feel less alone when I read the books of Ratzinger. -Oriana Fallaci

The fathers, if they got me alone, would try to kiss and fondle me. I hated it. -Christine Keeler

I went out every single night so I was never alone with my stepfather. At 12, I stopped going on holiday with them. The times I was alone with him I always made sure I was all covered up. -Christine Keeler

I hope this will help new moms not feel alone or desperate, and that there is no shame in their feelings. PPD is out of their control, but the treatment and healing process is not. -Brooke Shields

I've stood my ground in life, alone, even against overwhelming forces with the might and money to crush me. -Tatum O'Neal
