Sometimes my body wakes me up and says 'Hey, you haven't had pain in a while. How about pain?' And sometimes I can't breathe, and that's hard to live with. But I still celebrate life and don't give up. -Mattie Stepanek

There's an interesting contrast between born Catholics and converts. Converts are often much more rule-directed. Catholicism isn't something that they breathed in from their childhood, so they think that if you don't toe the line on abstract doctrine you can't be part of the Church. -Garry Wills

You have to rely on your preparation. You got to really be passionate and try to prepare more than anyone else, and put yourself in a position to succeed, and when the moment comes you got to enjoy, relax, breathe and rely on your preparation so that you can perform and not be anxious or filled with doubt. -Steve Nash

Mozart, Beethoven – how can you not want to share them with everyone and anyone? This stuff is of as great importance as the food we eat and the air we breathe. -Charles Hazlewood

Culture is the air we breathe all around us. -Josh Fox

I get to shift multiple markets. I get to shift economies. It's extremely liberating. I breathe differently. -Shai Agassi

For some people, you know, Garrison Keillor, Rush Limbaugh, really the stars, they've got a passion. They eat, drink and breathe radio, and I'm not like that. I used to think I wanted to be. But I need to be away from it, too, and that's the difference, I think. -Tom Bodett

This air we breathe is precious, and the glaciers helped me understand that and stay focused on that. -James Balog

Breath does, in fact, connect us all in a very literal way. Take a breath now. And as you breathe, think about what is in your breath. There perhaps is the CO2 from the person sitting next-door to you. -Jane Poynter

I love to dance and perform the Argentine tango – it breathes love! -Gilles Marini

Any good production team is going to allow an actor to breathe life into the characters – that's why they hired that woman, that man, whatever the case. -John DiMaggio

Mine is a job that never ends, a function where it is almost impossible to set aside time to rest or take a breather. -Alber Elbaz

I'm going to guess Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, all want clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. I'm sure most people think women should be paid the same as men if they're doing the same job. I think we all want good schools for our kids. If we made that list, we actually are in agreement on more things. -Michael Moore

When people ask me what the most important thing is in life, I answer: 'Just breathe.' -Yoko Ono

In a meadow full of flowers, you cannot walk through and breathe those smells and see all those colors and remain angry. We have to support the beauty, the poetry, of life. -Jonas Mekas

Look at the newborn baby. It struggles to breathe after living in the womb. And yet, growth comes as a result of struggle. Even when we talk about jihad. We need to attach consciousness to struggle. This struggle has to be both individual and collective. -H. Rap Brown

Don't start writing your novel until you know your characters very, very well. What they'd do if they saw somebody shoplifting. What they were like at school. What shoes they wear. Spend days – weeks, months – being them until they thicken up and start to breathe. -Deborah Moggach

I work in a business environment forty hours a week, and writing is what I do to unwind. It allows me to transport myself to a happy place where I can indulge my hopes, beliefs, aspirations and fantasies. It also allows me to live and breathe a topic for eighteen months while I'm researching and writing. -Ashwin Sanghi

We need to put ourselves in the shoes of our customers. That is my new battle cry. Live and breathe Starbucks the way our customers do. -Howard Schultz

The most important thing for me is health – you wake up in the morning, you can breathe, and you can walk. -Mohamed Al-Fayed

An anthropologist will not excitedly report of a newly discovered tribe: 'They eat food! They breathe air! They use tools! They tell each other stories!' We humans forget how alike we are, living in a world that only reminds us of our differences. -Eliezer Yudkowsky

Magic is crazy. He is that crazy wild guy on the basketball court that is very intense and very serious. He is the guy who lives and eats and breathes basketball. Magic is a guy who would stand for nothing but winning and really prepared himself as well as he prepared his team. Earvin is the complete opposite. -Magic Johnson

We need to be more conversant with it because science is in our lives. It's in everything. It's in the food we eat. It's in the air we breathe. It's everywhere. -Alan Alda

You should breathe deeply and chant, 'Money will easily and effortlessly flow into my life' as often as you can every day. Things will start to change after a month. If you believe you will be financially secure, then you are opening yourself up to change. -Louise L. Hay

There is something about acting that's mysterious and magical because there is only so much I can do to prepare, and then I have to just let go and breathe and believe that it will come through. -Lupita Nyong'o

The worst thing I ever wore, really, was rubber pants, but I don't think that was a cliche. They were just way too hot. Rubber doesn't breathe. I look back on my photos, and I dig them. I think I look really cool. -Sebastian Bach

I want to make something that is breathtaking. Of course, you can't make something that is always breathtaking, or you would never be able to breathe. You would collapse. -Brian Eno

My mother 'gave teas' the way other mothers breathed. Her own mother 'gave teas.' All of their friends 'gave teas,' each involving butter cookies extruded from a metal press and pastel bonbons ordered from See's. -Joan Didion

It has always been the aim of royalty and aristocracy to lower the individual liberty and independence of the common people. A baron and a minute-man could not breathe the same air. -John Boyle O'Reilly

I live in a Moomin house in East London which I fill with blankets and nice crockery and get people round for dinner. When you travel a lot, you feel rootless and adrift – this is my sanctuary, where I can breathe out. -Bat for Lashes

What keeps me interested is that I have to do it. It's like people wake up and they have to breathe; I have to write songs; I have to make music. That's like eating or breathing to me. It's that simple. -Diane Warren

If you're an artist, it's OK to put your money into your art. The advantage, in hindsight, is that you become the film, and the film becomes you; you breathe it. -Anton Corbijn

My father got a trade union scholarship to Oxford; he lived and breathed politics; he was always watching current-affairs programmes. But I have a five-year-old child's attitude towards the news. Mainly, that it absolutely turns me off. -Jez Butterworth

The Left can play the race card incessantly without consequence or punishment, but woe to anyone else who even breathes valid opposition to their policies: Thou shall be deemed a racist. -Monica Crowley

I think everyone should sing – it's so good for you, as it makes you breathe deeply, and it's good for you emotionally, too. It's a brilliant release way of lifting the spirits. -Twiggy

Maintaining the trust of the consumer is critical to our business. We live and breathe only one thing, which is wanting to connect consumers with great local businesses, and I don't feel we can do that if we don't have effective ways to prevent gaming of the system. -Jeremy Stoppelman

Alice Munro is not only revered, she is cherished, her stories handled lovingly, turned over and over, gazed at and studied and breathed in with something approaching awe. She has never, over the years, written the way any of her contemporaries have. -Cathleen Schine

I lived and breathed dancing. It was my everything. -Lisa O'Hare

I love team sports – they give me something to focus on rather than the fact that I can't breathe or my muscles are aching. -Sanjeev Bhaskar

Bond doesn't have an inner life. There would be moments when I'd think, 'We need to gather our thoughts here and have a breather,' where in another novel you'd slow the pace, have some description and see what Bond feels about this. But Bond doesn't reflect. All you can do is move on to the next bomb or shark or car. -Sebastian Faulks

Racing takes so much determination, guts, and sacrifice to be on top. I once craved, lived, and breathed racing. I can honestly say now, I'm ready to slow down and enjoy my life. Maybe I'll cut loose and have a cheeseburger or some pizza. Those types of indulgencies are not allowed when you constantly have to monitor your weight. -Chantal Sutherland

I think the Winter Olympics are definitely on a smaller scale than the summer games, but with the inclusion of cool new sports like slope style skiing and snowboarding, it is going to breathe new life into them and attract a whole new crowd. -Nick Goepper

I want to take time for myself, because all my life is ta-ta-ta-ta. So I don't want nothing special, just to breathe. I'd like to work maybe a half day and then take my bicycle and go by the riverside. -Renzo Rosso

Living in New York City, I am reminded by the Statue of Liberty that the United States of America has always welcomed those yearning to breathe free and seek a better life. -Charles B. Rangel

I don't usually get star struck, but I met Sir Paul McCartney randomly on Sunset Boulevard a few years ago, and I lost it! I couldn't breathe, I couldn't think, and I didn't know how to speak. It was crazy. He was nice enough to talk to my family and me for 10 minutes, but I remember babbling away about nonsense. -Sterling Knight

Cricket is my life. Before the cancer, I was happy-go-lucky. I used to think about my career and worry about the future. But post it, my thinking has completely changed. I'm happy to eat and breathe normally. I'm happy to have my life back. -Yuvraj Singh

Acting isn't a side thing – you have to live and breathe it. -Bella Thorne

I never personalize anything because I think that can be dangerous. For me, the best way is – this may sound pretentious – but it's to breathe the character and get into the psychology of it. -Imogen Poots

Every one, we, we homosexuals, are people, and we need our oxygen to breathe. -Binyavanga Wainaina

I live on the West Coast of the United States, and yet the air that I breathe is sometimes the same air that was being breathed in China the day before. -Alice Walker

I remember, as a boy of 17 years of age, this was a fascinating thing for me: how we human beings breathe out carbon dioxide into the air, the leaves of plants pick this carbon dioxide up, and the plant gives off oxygen, which we can breathe in and keep our life going. -Percy Julian

At the parish level, where the church lives and moves and breathes, that's where we need to be engaging our people much more in understanding the Word of God… the Word of God reflected in the traditional teaching of the church, the Word of God reflected in the scriptures, is as much a part of their lives as anything else. -Donald Wuerl

If you ever really want to get away from it all and see something that you have never seen, and have an excellent chance of seeing something no one has ever seen, get in a sub. You climb in, seal the hatch, turn on a little oxygen, turn on the scrubber, which removes the CO2 in the air you breathe, and they chuck you overboard. Down you go. -Mike deGruy

Israelis would mostly breathe a sigh of relief if Palestinians were to disappear. -Noam Chomsky

I enjoy mixed audiences, not one particular group. Short, tall, scientists, Jews, gentiles, whatever, as long as they breathe and like to laugh. -Don Rickles

Hindered by asthma since I was six weeks old, I had begun experimenting with my diet and discovered a disquieting correlation. When I stopped eating the normal American diet of sugar, fats, alcohol, chemicals, and additives, I felt better. I could breathe freely. When I tried to sneak in a hamburger and a Coke, my body rebelled. -Paul Hawken

Whether in print or other media, a good biography is more than a court record or a stringing together of already familiar sources. It breathes life into the subject. -Noel Riley Fitch

When I was 25, I was in a show called 'Bajour,' and I was going to leave the show because I couldn't breathe. I couldn't sing, and I couldn't do the basic dance steps I had to do. Fortunately, two actors in the production – who were also yoga instructors – taught me some breathing exercises, and my asthma was cured that day. -Paul Sorvino

Everything has to have some kind of a point for people to breathe easy. What's the point of life? I have no clue, but sometimes there are things that just attract us and pull us in a certain way. -Harmony Korine

I'm part of a speech therapy programme called the McGuire Programme. It teaches you a new way to breathe, a new way to speak, a brand new way of tackling the mind-sets that come with having a speech impediment. Mainly, it teaches you how to slow things down, and that has really helped me. -Gareth Gates

An institution is beyond any individual. It breathes and lives on its own and always will. -Nita Ambani

I always breathe cricket. -Kapil Dev

I am definitely someone who needs to take a second by myself and stretch and breathe before a show. -Jake Epstein

Being able to breathe underwater would be sweet. There is so much life underneath the water that we don't know about. I would love to check out the bottom of the ocean to see what's going on down there. -Cameron Bright

My parents lived, breathed, ate and slept theatre. Emotions were right on the surface. Growing up, the unreal had as much importance as the real. -Megan Follows

The 13-episode model lends itself to a more serialised format, which is nice and gives writers a chance to breathe some space into it. -Eddie Cahill

You breathe fast when you're scared. -Kelli O'Hara

Since the majority of the oxygen we breathe comes from the ocean, not to mention much of the world's protein, it is not an exaggeration to say that when our oceans' health declines, our very survival is at risk. -Brian Skerry

All roads for me lead back to Mozart. In his tragically short life, he breathed new life, fire and meaning into every form of music that existed in his time. -Charles Hazlewood

Millions of people with respiratory diseases have relied on oxygen equipment, delivered to their homes, to help them breathe. -Charles Duhigg

Since cowardice must occur at a time and place where an enemy either has already appeared or may yet turn up, servicemen in peacetime – and ordinary civilians – can breathe a sigh of relief. If you are yellow-bellied back home, you're not technically a coward. -Charles Duhigg

If you want to paint the inner life, you paint it from the exterior. From the exterior, you breathe the inner life into your painting. -Charlotte Rampling

My energy levels are off the charts. I can run all day, I breathe well, and I sweat a lot, so the toxins and impurities come out of my body. -Larry Fitzgerald

It's funny how when your kids get sick, they get even cuter when they have a stuffed nose and they mouth breathe. -David Walton

I thought I was Superman until I experienced that life-changing anaphylactic shock. I was eating lunch and gobbled down a couple of bowls of gumbo. Then, 15 minutes later, I'm in my dorm room resting up. My eyes started itching and my throat was swelling up. I could barely breathe. -Adrian Peterson

In some ways, what I learned is that you can take a character and breathe with them, and it's up to the audience to interpret rather than you putting moral stamp on the character. -Aden Young

I can't even consider the prospect of grandchildren because I don't know if there will be anything left for them on Earth. That's how serious the problem is. We can't drink the water or breathe the air, and we're all dying from some sort of cancer. How many generations can sustain that? It frightens me terribly. -Patti Davis

I think most amateurs dread playing a 180-plus-yard par 3 even more than a hard par 4. Part of it is psychological: You think you should be getting a breather, distance-wise, and instead, you get hit with a long iron or hybrid shot over trouble. -Ernie Els

I come from a country that lives and breathes rugby, and I didn't think there would be anywhere else in the world that could be the same. But New Zealand takes it to another dimension. It's extraordinary how much passion Kiwis have for the game. -Luke Evans

The Chinese have figured out that they have a giant environmental problem. Folks in Beijing, some days, literally can't breathe. Over a million Chinese die prematurely every year because of air pollution. -Joe Biden

Innovation can only occur where you can breathe free. -Joe Biden

Yes, e-commerce is a strange situation for an old guy like me. You can buy a TV online, OK, but to buy a dress or shoes? Ugh. The customer has to go back to the store and breathe and smell and have a good time. Because shopping is a good time – like going to a nice restaurant. -Max Azria

Change is one of the only constants in Buddhism; as meditation became the way I breathed in the days, this became apparent. -Nick Flynn

Let's leverage the power of the Web – don't get rid of it, but make the Web beautiful again. We need to give the content room to breathe and give magazine-style advertisements the opportunity to flourish. -Mike McCue

Acting was merely a pastime; I wanted to make films. But theatre, ah – now that was a labour of love. Can there be anything better than performing without retakes and cuts, in front of people you can see, hearing them breathe in the darkness of the hall? -Kabir Bedi

One of the best moments I've ever had in New Orleans is seeing Bourbon Street filled on a weekend night not long ago. Just watching the city breathe again. -Ray Nagin

In many a piece of music, it's the pause or the rest that gives the piece its beauty and its shape. And I know I, as a writer, will often try to include a lot of empty space on the page so that the reader can complete my thoughts and sentences and so that her imagination has room to breathe. -Pico Iyer

With sufficient water on the Moon, solar energy can be used to split the water into hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen is, of course, critical for humans to breathe and the water important for us to drink. -Peter Diamandis

Americans easily forget that the air they breathe is the same as those in Europe or Africa or Asia; it's the same air as Jesus breathed. I would like them to remember that connection. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Many cities make music, but no city breathes music quite like Memphis. The songs and sounds that come from here are uniquely American. -Shawn Amos

The model of the human habitat dictated by zoning is a formless, soul-less, centerless, demoralizing mess. It bankrupts families and townships. It disables whole classes of decent, normal citizens. It ruins the air we breathe. It corrupts and deadens our spirit. -James Howard Kunstler

I love being tall. as you literally look at life from a different perspective: it's easier to breeze through life's turmoils; there's more room to breathe. -Gwendoline Christie

I talk to myself quite a lot, and when things get stressful, I just tell myself to breathe. -Maisie Williams

I'm a mammal at the end. I breathe out and breathe in and eat. At the end, when we go to sleep, nobody lives this political definition. It's something we connect by and we try to understand each other by, but at the end, we know that this is not who we are. -Ashraf Barhom

I was a jazz drummer, and it was my life for a while: what I lived and breathed every day. -Damien Chazelle

Nothing I do is thought out or planned or premeditated. It's just that I'm breathing and living! You just have to breathe and live. -Banks

I love getting to be in 'The Avengers.' You just breathe a little bit. It's not all about you. It's so nice to have other people bearing the burden of responsibility. -Chris Evans

Organisms in the ocean provide over 40 percent of the oxygen we breathe, and they're the major sink for capturing all the carbon dioxide we constantly release into the atmosphere. -Craig Venter

You seize sentiment better when you get clear of nature. You breathe it in every sense! -Jules Verne

What am I? Do I know? I am a man: quite simply, a 'breather.' -Marcel Duchamp

I'm convinced that the main reason we've become so obsessed with restaurants is due to our basic need to get out of virtual space and into a real one. We're not going out to eat merely to share food; we're there to sit at the same table together, slow down, breathe the same air. -Ruth Reichl

I gasp for air if I don't get to breathe Italian air once a year. -Danny Meyer

The costume affects your posture, affects your walk, how you hold yourself, and how you breathe. The costumes make you deliver. -Richard Madden

I have a couple of things I do to clear my head when I need it. The first is exercise, the kind of exercise that makes me lie on the floor afterward gasping for breath and wonder if I'm actually going to be able to breathe enough to not die. The other one is playing music. -Stewart Butterfield

I've never had a voice coach, but I am about to name drop horrendously here: I did once get some advice on how to project my voice from Sean Connery, which was lovely. It's all about where you breathe. That's my claim to fame. -Nicola Sturgeon

I normally write in the first person, and my narrators are as real to me as any of the people I have worked with. They live and breathe in my imagination. -Michael Robotham

Coming to Nashville has been so motivating and inspirational. Just watching people live and breathe their music and create something that they can feel from start to finish. -Madi Diaz

My directing style has changed over the years. I allow things to breathe a lot more. -Scott Ellis

I still can't believe that I went on 'The Colbert Report' myself; for the appearance I wore a lot of makeup, my hair was curled like a poodle's, and I could barely breathe in my Spanx undergarments. But, hey – an authoress has to lean in, right? -Edan Lepucki

'Avatar: The Last Airbender' is, to my mind, the greatest American animated series ever produced. The characters lived and breathed. -Gene Luen Yang

My dad was a huge big band and jazz fan, and we both sort of enjoyed be-bop, but man, it required so much skill to play it. And then there was cool jazz, the era that Miles, Coltrane, and Ornette ushered in, and that found a home in me. It turns out that that music was just really where I breathed. -J. D. Souther

Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap – let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. -Abraham Lincoln

Even though it's not a widely appreciated yarn, any suit made from a mohair-wool blend travels exceptionally well. The retention of the mohair fiber bounces back and minimizes any creasing that occurs whilst traveling. Mohair also breathes really well, keeping you cool or warm, and is therefore extremely versatile. -Simon Spurr

Music feels like a six sense to me, and it's never been just a hobby. It's something that I have to do to breathe. It's an extension of who I am. -Shamir

Rhythm is sound in motion. It is related to the pulse, the heartbeat, the way we breathe. It rises and falls. It takes us into ourselves; it takes us out of ourselves. -Edward Hirsch

COPD includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, or both. Over time, it makes it harder and harder to breathe because less air is able to flow in and out of the lungs. -Caitlyn Jenner

You have to find something that you have to obsess over if you're making a movie about it. As a director, you have to be able to pick something that excites you enough that you can breathe it every day. -Jon Favreau

Acting is my life. It's what I live and breathe. -Ruby Rose

Our nation has abundant clean energy resources, and tapping them will generate jobs, make the air safer to breathe, and tackle climate change – the greatest environmental crisis of our time. -Frances Beinecke

In classic noir fiction and film, it is always hot. Fans whirr in sweltering hotel rooms, sweat forms on a stranger's brow, the muggy air stifles – one can hardly breathe. Come nightfall, there is no relief, only the darkness that allows illicit lovers to meet, the trusted to betray, and murderers to act. -Michael Dirda

Every footstep we take, every action has a consequence. We breathe in weather, but we breathe out CO2. We're responsible for weather and for climate. -Gretel Ehrlich

I couldn't breathe. I – I went into – literally, my kidneys stopped functioning. They stopped, you know, processing the fluid that was starting to build up in my body. -Natalie Cole

I am a father, and sometimes I want to stay close to home. By varying the workplace, it gives me space to breathe. I enjoy theatre because it reminds me I'm mortal, and it's terrifying when it goes wrong but the most thrilling experience when it flies. -Colin Salmon

When a kid graduates from being the youngest in a family to being a big brother or sister, there's an amazing transformation. They have to make a big effort, and when they accept their new position in the family, everybody breathes a sigh of relief. All of a sudden they seem bigger, and they seem smarter, and they feel good about it, too. -Peggy Rathmann

The problem of working in a mine, you are inside the belly of the monster, and it controls you. The air you breathe, the stones that fall on your head, we had to be on guard. -Patricia Riggen

I love a good wool suit, and I appreciate the fact that it's a natural fiber. I know where it comes from, and I know how it's bred. And it's built to last. It breathes, and it feels good. -Jason Clarke

School houses do not teach themselves – piles of brick and mortar and machinery do not send out men. It is the trained, living human soul, cultivated and strengthened by long study and thought, that breathes the real breath of life into boys and girls and makes them human, whether they be black or white, Greek, Russian or American. -W. E. B. Du Bois

I believe in Liberty for all men: the space to stretch their arms and their souls, the right to breathe and the right to vote, the freedom to choose their friends, enjoy the sunshine, and ride on the railroads, uncursed by color; thinking, dreaming, working as they will in a kingdom of beauty and love. -W. E. B. Du Bois

It's for us to take care of the air we breathe and the water we drink. And I do believe we have an impact on that, and we do have the ability to change it if we make the decision to. -Scott Kelly

You go to the gym to make sure you have the stamina to breathe in the corsets. -Sondra Radvanovsky

We can no longer take our own way of life for granted – we know that it may be challenged. And we know this, too – and know it ever more deeply – we know that freedom and democracy are not just big words mouthed by orators but the rain and the wind and the sun, the air and the light by which we breathe and live. -Stephen Vincent Benet

We reached a high point in my opinion with the passage of the civil rights legislation and Martin Luther King's success and the crusade of others. I think we kind of breathed a sigh of relief as if we had achieved the end of racial discrimination or white supremacy. -Jimmy Carter

When they told me I couldn't sit on the Senate floor with an iPad – that the technology wasn't even permitted – I breathed deep and knew that I was going to have to start pushing. -Cory Booker

I understand when people think dressage is boring. But while your standard horse is like driving a Fiesta, our horses are like driving Formula One cars. I can't breathe without the horse reacting. You are training another being to become really responsive and athletic and powerful. -Lee Pearson

Revenge is a caustic thing. I say, Breathe in, breathe deeply, let it go. -Jason Statham

Placing limits on carbon pollution from power plants is about ensuring that we have clean air to breathe and communities that are safe to live in. Carbon pollution limits are about defending families who have borne the heaviest burden of the main pollutant that is driving climate change. -Donna Brazile

It's funny: in the middle of making 'The Muse,' I was offered, at the time, the first 'Ice Age,' the part that Ray Romano took: I was offered the elephant. And I couldn't even stop to breathe, so I didn't do it. They've made, like, six of them. And in the animation business, for a voice actor, that's what you want. You want six, you know? -Albert Brooks

I meditate. I breathe out what I can't control and focus on the positives. -Deepika Padukone

Art is something that grows and breathes and lives, and it shouldn't be predicated on the success of box office – but it is. But within that, you have to give people a chance to find their voice, to play, to continue to create. -Ava DuVernay

Often, female characters are quite one dimensional, especially in a two hour film; television gives characters room to breathe and develop. -Elizabeth Debicki

An adult human can last 40 days without food, a week without any sleep, three days without water, but only five minutes without air. Yet nothing is more taken for granted than the air we breathe. However, not just any air will do – it must be exquisitely designed to meet our needs. Too little oxygen in the atmosphere will kill us, as will too much. -Hugh Ross

I'd never felt afraid of pollution before and never wore a mask no matter where. But when you carry a life in you, what she breathes, eats and drinks are all your responsibility; then you feel the fear. -Chai Jing

God breathes through us so completely… so gently we hardly feel it… yet, it is our everything. -John Coltrane

We have to breathe new life into Europe. -Emmanuel Macron

What secret knowledge, one must wonder, is breathed into lawyers when they become Justices of this Court that enables them to discern that a practice which the text of the Constitution does not clearly proscribe, and which our people have regarded as constitutional for 200 years, is in fact unconstitutional? -Antonin Scalia

I don't really wear makeup every day. I feel like being an actress – we wear a lot of makeup – but when I am not working, I need to let my face breathe and be very comfortable. -Lea Seydoux

Political theatre presents an entirely different set of problems. Sermonising has to be avoided at all cost. Objectivity is essential. The characters must be allowed to breathe their own air.

Definitely when you give a script to an actor, it's like dropping a capsule in water and the fizzing starts. That's when the thing starts to live and breathe. -Jeff Nichols

Yoga stretches out your body and releases lactic acid. I do it four times a week, and my skin feels fantastic afterwards. When I'm doing a film, I do it every day – I keep a yoga mat in my trailer. Sometimes I do it in front of the TV. The stretching makes me feel so good. It gets my heart going and helps me breathe deeply. -Thandie Newton

We are a nation founded as a rebuke to tyranny. A nation of revolutionaries who refused sovereign reign from afar. Hear me – we're a nation that says give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. A nation built on our differences, guided by the belief that we're all created equal. -Michelle Obama

I suppose one of the challenges of writing the word-side of music these days is trying to decipher and communicate how this planet is very overwhelming at this point. The difficulties we face are overwhelming. It's very difficult to give yourself the time to breathe and appreciate the joy and beauty that might be just right around us. -Eddie Vedder

I was a grade B housewife, maybe a B minus. But when I got time to write, I would be unable to finish a sentence. I had anxiety attacks. Partly it was a way of personifying the situation because I couldn't breathe. I was surrounded by people and by duties. I was a housewife and the children's mother, and I was judged on how I performed those roles. -Alice Munro

I am the conductor for life of the Staatskapelle in Berlin, which fills me with tremendous joy because I feel absolutely at one with them. When we play, I have a feeling that together we manage to create one collective lung for the whole orchestra so that everybody in the stage breathes the music in the same way. -Daniel Barenboim

To be honest, whenever I go to shoots, or I'm on set, it really makes makeup special and allows me to have so much more fun with it – I don't wear it on an everyday basis, because I like my skin to breathe. -Samira Wiley

I eat and breathe small government and freedom. -Mike Pompeo

What people would qualify as R&B is, for me, just soul. And I love honesty and soul and heavy, crunchy beats that move you and make you breathe a little bit faster. -Banks

When I taught art, I was always asked, 'How do you know you're an artist? What makes you an artist?' And to me, it's like breathing. You don't question if you breathe; you have to breathe. So if you wake up in the morning, and you have to realize an idea, and there's another idea, and another, maybe you are really an artist. -Marina Abramovic

I had breathed in the atmosphere created by Henri Christophe, the monarch of incredible aims, much more surprising than all the kings invented by the surrealists. -Alejo Carpentier

I first found delight in the Sabbath many years ago when, as a busy surgeon, I knew that the Sabbath became a day for personal healing.

Nelson

I breathe martial arts every day of my life. -Rafael dos Anjos

Anybody who knows me knows that I don't just love this sport, I am in love with it. I am really in love with this sport. I am obsessed with boxing. I eat, breathe and sleep it.

Manchester United breathes football. -Robin Van Persie

There's such a thing as being a little too perfect – a little too shiny. I know I prefer things that have room to breathe and give you a story, a world, in which you have the room to move around. -Mark Frost

It's OK to want to look and feel your best. It's OK to work at being attractive, whatever that means to you. And it's also OK to not expect to be defined by that. It's OK to be powerful in every way: to be big, to take up space. To breathe and thrive. -Claire Danes

Refugees come to us seeking asylum, seeking freedom, justice and dignity – seeking a chance just to breathe. And people in our country are saying close the doors and don't let them in? -Mandy Patinkin

When we did 'The Jewel In The Crown,' we filmed in India first so the actors had an idea of what the heat was like, what it did to you – it slows you down; it's weighty: the air that you breathe is full of humidity. You are aware of the fact that you're not in a studio in Manchester. -Art Malik

We should steadily intensify the work of establishing the Party's monolithic leadership system to make the whole Party share ideology with the Party Central Committee, breathe the same breath as it, and keep pace with it. -Kim Jong-un

I used to go trick-or-treating all the time. When I was young we had the plastic mask with the rubber band that would cut your face, and you couldn't breathe and it was really sweaty! I had the Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man. I used to love the Incredible Hulk, and then one year I had the great idea to be Mr. T, and that was an awesome costume too. -Kenan Thompson

I learned that when life pulls you under, you can kick against the bottom, break the surface, and breathe again. -Sheryl Sandberg

Comedy prepared me for drama. There are a couple techniques you can think of. One of my acting teachers said that comedy is like ping-pong, and drama is tennis. You take things a bit slower, so you do get to breathe more and take some more time. -Craig Robinson

Being on 'The Office' prepared me for drama. Comedy got me ready, but once you get down to it, they're two sides of the same thing. I mean, the delivery has to be different – in drama, there's more time to breathe, and comedy's all about hitting the joke. -Craig Robinson

I live and breathe football. -Eric Weddle

Our dad was always like, 'Look, if you're musical, if you live and breathe music and want to play an instrument, that's not something that's on me to put on you. If you're passionate, you will come to my studio every day after school and watch me work because you can't live without it. -Erin Foster

We eat, sleep, breathe bitcoin. -Tyler Winklevoss

It's always a weird feeling being on the red carpet, but the more I go, the more I try to connect myself to the here and now. And breathe. That's the way I make the experience a good one. If I think too much – if my head is somewhere else because I'm stressed out – it shows. -Marion Cotillard

I refuse to believe that 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…' is now an empty entreaty. But if it is, shame on us. -Maryanne Trump Barry

When I ruptured my spleen, I was about to win the overall Series for the World Tour, and I was at the last event in Vermont for the U.S. Open and was having a great day.

I always remember to go on the Staten Island Ferry because it's the most amazing view of New York. And it's free! You see Ellis Island, and it conjures up something of that great moment: you know, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. It's staggering. -Tim Pigott-Smith

Sometimes I feel surrounded by this dark cloud, and it feels like I can't breathe. It's nervousness and I don't know what else. -Mikaela Shiffrin

I really don't believe in retiring as long as you can breathe. -Ruby Dee

I always think of albums as the format. I think it's perfect. I don't think you can tamper with that. It's not just sound, the analog, which is so much richer. It's the format. You're constrained by just 45 minutes, and it's perfect to me. I don't want to listen to any more than, and I live and breathe music. -Jim James

Separation, I think, in an early-stage company or a startup environment is not a good thing. You need to basically live and breathe the entire environment. -Shervin Pishevar

Being from a small town, no one else was going to breathe life into my ideas other than me, so I had to go out there and do it. -Matt Bellamy

'Session 9' can be interpreted in different ways. You can get the sense that Gordon breathes in an evil spirit but can also be read as a much more clinical movie that shows a man who becomes unhinged or may be going mad. An inspiration was Nicolas Roeg's 'Don't Look Now.' -Brad Anderson

I'm in bed by 10, but I may not actually go to sleep until 11. It doesn't take long. I just breathe in and out maybe 10 times, and that does it. -Belinda Johnson

When you look at farmers and ranchers, for example, they are our first environmentalists. They are our first conservationists. When you look at the greatest asset that they have, it is their land.

Music needs room to breathe. -Ennio Morricone

In Jiu-Jitsu, every instinct you have wants to do everything but relax or breathe when someone's attacking you, and learning that takes a long time.

I just feel like there's a lot of things more important than just basketball, and I love basketball. It's what I want to do for the longest time possible.

It's time we acknowledge that not all Democrats are the same. That a Democrat who takes corporate money, profits off foreclosure, doesn't live here, doesn't send his kids to our schools, doesn't drink our water or breathe our air cannot possibly represent us. -Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

If I can do a scene in one shot, it's in one shot. Most of my shots are pretty long. I think with 'Looking,' what we have in the first minute is a whole episode of a traditional TV show. I like to let things breathe; I like to let things have a certain tone. -Andrew Haigh

I take a few moments in the morning just to breathe while I drink my morning coffee or right before I get out of bed. -Ayesha Curry

I don't wear that much makeup. I'll do a little concealer here and there and apply some mascara. It just depends on how I'm feeling that day, but I try and go days without makeup just because I think it's healthier for skin to breathe. -Goapele

I worked on 'Always and Forever, Lara Jean' for a few months before I breathed a word of it my editor or agent. -Jenny Han

Parents who achieve a successful work-life balance don't live and breathe to make their kids happy. Instead, they strive to raise independent children that will grow to become responsible adults. -Amy Morin

The family that I live for only breathes the air that smells of combat. -The Ultimate Warrior

I teach people how to breathe; I teach them how to use dynamic resistance, which is what gets your heart rate jacked up. -Diamond Dallas Page

I like to let my skin breathe, I don't like to stress it out. I don't like to put it through very much. -Hari Nef

Five years before 'Kitchen Confidential' – and before then, the 'New Yorker' essay that led to the book – Bourdain published 'A Bone in the Throat,' a crime novel set in the restaurant world he lived and breathed. -Sarah Weinman

Everyone wants to be safe. Well, I got news for you: You can't be safe. Life's not safe. Your work isn't safe. When you leave the house, it isn't safe. The air you breathe isn't going to be safe, not for very long. That's why you have to enjoy the moment. -Lemmy

They treat you as if you are a different kind of human or life form when you are a celebrity – as if we don't breathe the same air, or we don't bleed the same – and I hate that. I really hate that. -Lil Yachty

Many times, I'd spend the night walking the city streets: the Trevi fountain, in the dark, is so beautiful it moves you, but the Colosseum is my favourite place – you can breathe history there. -Alisson

I like many things in English football – everyone lives and breathes it here. Of course, that doesn't mean I don't like Spanish football. -Julen Lopetegui

I live, breathe, and sleep guitars. -Joe Bonamassa

I've suffered rib injuries, but I've never had a broken one. I've dislocated it and popped it, and even that, a big step down from broken, it hurts so bad. But you can't really move. You can't even fully breathe and take a deep breath of air. -Chael Sonnen

There are a lot of opportunities to do a lot of great, wonderful things, and if you say yes to them all, you will not sleep or breathe or eat. -Chris Carmack

When I was first getting into the guitar, I played it incessantly. I lived it, breathed it, ate it, and slept it. I was also extremely self-critical, so from early on, I made sure to develop good playing habits – I constantly strove to sound in tune and have a great tone, and to play cleanly and in time. -Yngwie Malmsteen

Silence can be very effective, and it gives the music space to breathe. -Johann Johannsson

I lived, ate, breathed, slept Shawn Michaels. I wouldn't call it pro wrestling back in the day when I was a kid. I just called it Shawn Michaels. -Enzo Amore

I ended up breaking with my boyfriend, and a week later, Neil and I had a date. We started hanging out every single night, and after three months, it was just non-stop.

We're all burdened by our history of racial inequality. It's created a kind of smog that we all breathe in, and it has prevented us from being healthy. -Bryan Stevenson

I do work incredibly hard. I eat, sleep, and breathe pro wrestling with all of my heart, and I'm always committed to giving this my all. -Adam Cole

I had little breakdowns and depression that would last for three days. I also started suffering from panic attacks. I used to get them when I was really young, but they came back. I'd be out having a drink, and then I wouldn't be able to breathe, would freak out, and I'd feel like my heart was going to stop. -Tulisa

When you look at what's written under the Statue of Liberty, it's the immigrant story. It's about 'bring me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.' It's not about 'only bring me only your rich, your wealthy, your smart.' -Daniel Dae Kim

It is very difficult for me to breathe when it's hot and humid. -Paul Scholes

Being sick is a different story than having an injury. If you have a right arm injury, you can still use the rest of your body. You still have the energy to perform.

When it comes to 'Maruvaarthai,' I have said many a time that Carnatic music drives my creative influence. In that sense, Darbuka Siva gave me a lot of room to breathe with the melody. The instrumental, however, was grounded. The lyrics is just poetic, and phonetically, they sound beautiful. -Sid Sriram

I'm truly excited to be a part of the Reebok family. What really comes through when working with Reebok team is that they live and breathe fitness. They have an incredible heritage in training and know exactly what it takes to help athletes be as fit as they can be. -Johny Hendricks

I'm Asian, and I'm an actress, and I've been doing this since I was a teenager, so if anyone understands the conversation about misrepresentation and underrepresentation, it's me. I live and breathe it; this is my life. -Jessica Henwick

Torino is a city that breathes football. -Joe Hart

A lot of bands live and breathe out of hotels. I just happen to be the one that lives on my bus. I have camped and RVed my entire life. -Bret Michaels

I think there's always some good reason to try and modernize most period things, because at the end of the day, they may have, I suppose, used a different language or a different etiquette, but ultimately, these are still people that loved and breathed and lived and ate and weed and pooed just like we do now. -Florence Pugh

I have really acne-prone skin, and unfortunately, my job requires a lot of makeup, so when I'm not working, I do my best to let my skin breathe. -Logan Browning

There is a future for English films. Don't we all talk, breathe, and think in English? If we can talk and think in English, we can also make films in English. -Dimple Kapadia

In management, everything is different. If you look at successful coaches, they always need time to kickstart something. Arrigo Sacchi – when he started the revolution at Milan, he was almost on the brink of being sacked, but then he won, and people started believing in the system; he had more time to breathe. -Edgar Davids

I don't want to have to be taken out because I'm tired or I need a breather. -Myles Garrett

With the last couple of Pantera records, we kept getting more and more narrow-minded because of Phil. He didn't want to experiment or take any chances, and it was like being in a tube that was getting to be so small you couldn't even breathe. Personally, I think the dude was afraid of success. -Vinnie Paul

That's where I think a lot of these guys today are just, 'I'm the drummer, man. Check it out. Here's my lick. I just learned this new drum lick. I'm just gonna blast all over the place.' It's like, 'Man, you've got to let the song breathe.' -Vinnie Paul

In the Premier League, you don't have one second to breathe – you have to be on it from the first minute. If you lose focus – just for a few seconds – the game will pass you by. It's 100 miles an hour. -James Maddison

I lived and breathed football. Now I have difficulty walking because of that: because I gave much more than I actually had to give. -Gabriel Batistuta

I know that when I'm fitter, I breathe better. If I breathe better, I can eat more. -Joey Chestnut
