If evolution is outlawed, only outlaws will evolve. -Jello Biafra

First of all, what in this world does not revolve around money? But money is a big part of film, unlike a lot of other art forms. -Spike Lee

At some point in your life, if you're lucky, you get to design the way in which things evolve. -Daniel Day-Lewis

I think I've evolved into someone pretty confident – in myself and in my skin. -Halle Berry

My style has definitely evolved. When I first started out I think I was a little all over the place and the clothes kind of wore me rather than the other way round. But now I'm at the point where I'm comfortable dressing for me, I know what works and what I like. -Ashley Greene

I think malware is a significant threat because the mitigation, like antivirus software, hasn't evolved to a point to really mitigate the risk to a reasonable degree. -Kevin Mitnick

People who avoid the brick walls – all power to ya, but we all have to hit them sometimes in order to push through to the next level, to evolve. -Jennifer Aniston

But does that mean that war and violence are inevitable? I would argue not because we have also evolved this amazingly sophisticated intellect, and we are capable of controlling our innate behavior a lot of the time. -Jane Goodall

Planting native species in our gardens and communities is increasingly important, because indigenous insects, birds and wildlife rely on them. Over thousands, and sometimes millions, of years they have co-evolved to live in local climate and soil conditions. -David Suzuki

The medical literature tells us that the most effective ways to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer's, and many more problems are through healthy diet and exercise. Our bodies have evolved to move, yet we now use the energy in oil instead of muscles to do our work. -David Suzuki

It's impossible, I think, however much I'd become disillusioned politically or evolve into a post-political person, I don't think I'd ever change my view that socialism is the best political moment humans have ever come up with. -Christopher Hitchens

We evolved to move and to learn with all our five senses! -Martha Beck

The heritage of a British actor revolves around the challenges of playing the classic roles to meet certain levels of success as an actor. In America, the heritage of an actor is based on cinema mainly. -Brian Cox

I don't like celebrity programmes – but I do like programmes about how ideas are formed and evolve. -Brian Eno

Each culture has its own form of staged combat, evolved from its particular method of street fighting and cleaned up for presentation as a spectacle, e.g. savate, Cornish wrestling, karate, kung-fu. -David Mamet

Culture exists and evolves to relegate to habit categories of interactions the constant conscious reference to which would make human interaction impossible. -David Mamet

Movies were never an art form, they were entertainment. It just evolved into an art form from there, and it's still evolving in different ways. -David Mamet

My life revolves around my child's routine. -Shania Twain

I know that my grandfather is 92 years old. And he has seen this country evolve in amazing ways. He looks at South Carolina and he says, wow, what an amazing state that we have the blessing to live within because of the evolution. -Tim Scott

On 'Van Halen,' I was a young punk, and everything revolved around the fastest kid in town, gunslinger attitude. But I'd say that at the time of 'Fair Warning,' I started concentrating more on songwriting. But I guess in most people's minds I'm just a gunslinger. -Eddie Van Halen

When you discover first love as a teenager, your whole life revolves around it and you open yourself up to it. -Patrick Dempsey

More and more, job listings are exclusively available online and as technology evolves nearly every occupation now requires a basic level of digital literacy with web navigation, email access and participation in social media. -Michael K. Powell

I think comedy has evolved like every art form, and people probably do less standing around and telling jokes, and more things that have to do with reality. -Adam Carolla

People have to evolve. -Caprice Bourret

Anxiety is a natural thing humans have. You know, that's how we evolve. That's how we are, you know, we think things through. Sometimes my mind just thinks things through a lot. -Vinny Guadagnino

I run a solid 4-6 miles at a time, and over the last year two years I've gotten really into SoulCycle. It's sort of an evolved form of spinning. -Gail Simmons

I've been watching 'American Idol' since its debut season in 2002. Back then, America hadn't yet evolved into a gladiatorial cybernation of bloggers, tweeters, and self-ordained voice coaches. -Diablo Cody

I grew up in the South, so a huge part of our American History education revolved around the Civil War. -Anson Mount

My activities tend to revolve around crossword puzzles, reading and playing piano and games with my friends. -Rashida Jones

I like things that are hand made – but personally for a man, I'm not interested in fashion that evolves with time. I like things to be the same. For a woman I think it's fantastic to have things that are different – it's like a flower where every season there's some new exotic bloom. -Roman Coppola

You grow and evolve and as you do that, your art hopefully reflects that change and that growth. -Fefe Dobson

I would love to act for the rest of my life, but I also know that it could be taken away in a day. It's something I've always loved, but it's nothing I've ever revolved my entire life around. I have many other passions as well. -Shailene Woodley

The urgency to mate persists in all people as in all other mammals because of the evolutionary drive to continue the species, the inborn imperative for genes to reproduce and hormonal differences that evolved over millions of years. -Lynn Margulis

Unfortunately, as obsessed as I am with all of those Grimm's slash Disney princesses, I do think women have evolved socially in so many ways. -Ginnifer Goodwin

Every relationship has its own language. It takes a long time to evolve and read one another. Just as it's true for people, it's also true on a national or cultural level. -David Mitchell

The idea of trust-fund guys who live in Brooklyn in their 30s is really interesting to me. There's a time and a place where that kind of bohemian lifestyle is appropriate, soon after college, in your 20s. But there are people still living that many years later; they haven't evolved to the next phase. -Tim Heidecker

Well, I took ballet for many, many years, so my whole childhood really revolved around dance class. I grew up around dance; my mother was a dancer. -Amy Sherman-Palladino

Of course everybody's thinking evolves over time. -Meles Zenawi

Usually my ideas for work have revolved around my interest in people, especially people that live on the edges of society. -Mary Ellen Mark

Most of my childhood revolved around wondering when we would be blown up by the Russians. I couldn't stand the news, I knew that if the missile were launched, mortality would arrive in half an hour, so I spent a lot of my childhood feeling that I was 30 minutes from being dead. -Jane Smiley

Every 10 years you're a different person, and the really great books evolve with you as you get older. They're full of new rewards. -Martin Amis

Searching for alternative life on Earth might seem misconceived, because there is excellent evidence that every kind of life so far studied evolved from a common ancestor that lived billions of years ago. Yet most of the life that exists on Earth has never been properly classified. -Paul Davies

Every season we try to do something new. And not for gimmicks. We feel the show has to evolve and keep changing. -Tom Colicchio

If you change a character too much, the audience falls out of love with the character, but characters need to evolve and grow over the years. -Angela Kinsey

I think it's natural for an artist to explore as they evolve. -Miguel

There's one fundamental law that all of nature obeys that mankind breaks every day. Now, this is a law that's evolved over billions of years, and the law is this: Nothing in nature takes more than it needs. -Tom Shadyac

I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle a complex a situation as climate change. The inertia of humans is so huge that you can't really do anything meaningful. -James Lovelock

I was given baby doll toys myself, and they proved a stark reminder that my life was expected to revolve around childbearing – just as my mom's had before me, and her mom's had before her. -Beth Ditto

Languages are something of a mess. They evolve over centuries through an unplanned, democratic process that leaves them teeming with irregularities, quirks, and words like 'knight.' -Joshua Foer

Today's children are taught by our culture that we are a cosmic accident. Something slithered out of the primal slime and over billions of years evolved into a human being. We are cousins, ten times removed, to the ape at the zoo eating his own excrement. -Gary Bauer

Rebecca Black might sing like a robot, but that's just proof she has evolved beyond us. Her vocal is just a slightly exaggerated version of the robot glitch-twitch stutter that's been mainstream pop vocalese for the past 10 years or so. -Rob Sheffield

You start realizing that maybe you're the one night a month that people have out, and they don't need to hear your political views or how dark you can get. They just want to laugh for an hour and go home. Once I wrapped my head around that, my act evolved accordingly. -Billy Gardell

I think that the 'laws of nature' are also prone to evolve; I think they are more like habits than laws. -Rupert Sheldrake

Cultural standards evolve. The meaning of the public interest also, of course, evolves. -Reed Hundt

Every bit of our lives revolves around how we get from one place to another and how long it's going to take to get there and what time of day you have to leave to do it. -Donna Edwards

Structure that really pays off is all based on emotion. I don't write down an elaborate plan. It's really done by feel. It's one area of my writing that I think I've got surer at as I've evolved. -Graham Swift

Professionally I've evolved with what's required, but the pictures I do for pleasure haven't changed, except for the cars in the background, the clothing. I haven't changed at all. -Elliott Erwitt

In the long term, the United States could greatly benefit Islam by uniquely freeing the religion from government constraints and permitting it to evolve in a positive, modern direction. But that's the long term. -Daniel Pipes

The Lean Startup has evolved into a movement that is having a significant impact on how companies are built, funded and scaled. -Eric Ries

Jumping genes are fundamental because they're agents of change. Everybody knows that organisms evolve. What makes them evolve is that their genes are dynamic and in motion. A familiar example is the stripe-y corn – called Indian corn – that you buy in the fall. -Nina Fedoroff

Everybody's social life in Jordan revolves around family. -Queen Rania of Jordan

We never know all the facts and the more we're mindful of how we deal with people, the more opportunity we have to evolve. -Mary McDonnell

Now that mobile phones and the internet have altered the epistemic selective landscape in a revolutionary way, every religious organisation must scramble to evolve defences or become extinct. -Daniel Dennett

Human beings and plants have co-evolved for millions of years, so it makes perfect sense that our complex bodies would be adapted to absorb needed, beneficial compounds from complex plants and ignore the rest. -Andrew Weil

After lengthy consideration, my views have evolved sufficiently to support marriage equality legislation. This position doesn't require any religious denomination to alter any of its tenets; it simply forbids government from discrimination regarding who can marry whom. -Tim Johnson

A revolution is to bring on change and we're spiritual people trying to bring on spiritual change. It might sound like I'm a dreamer, but economic models have reached their height of evolution. Technology has evolved. What hasn't evolved is mankind's spirituality; everything is from 3,000 years ago. -Damian Marley

The thing I love most about acting is that your capacity evolves as you evolve as a human being. -Ben Whishaw

You can control and censor a child's reading, but you can't control her interpretations; no one can guess how a message that to adults seems banal or ridiculous or outmoded will alter itself and evolve inside the darkness of a child's heart. -Hilary Mantel

I want to have a career that evolves as I go on. -Ed Sheeran

These characters, they have to evolve. They're getting older on the show, these are things that happen in everyone's life. People do get married… this is just a natural evolution. I wonder if we'll have 'Big Bang' babies in the season finale? -Kunal Nayyar

I really don't have any weaknesses. I do have areas of my life that I am working on to grow, heal and evolve. Giving myself permission to rest is an area I am working on. Not rescuing my children and grandchildren is another area. -Iyanla Vanzant

Technology, and applications of this technology, will continue to improve and evolve, providing unprecedented, global access to information, individuals, training, and opportunities. -Maynard Webb

Mention the gothic, and many readers will probably picture gloomy castles and an assortment of sinister Victoriana. However, the truth is that the gothic genre has continued to flourish and evolve since the days of Bram Stoker, producing some of its most interesting and accomplished examples in the 20th century – in literature, film and beyond. -Carlos Ruiz Zafon

When I multiply numbers together, I see two shapes. The image starts to change and evolve, and a third shape emerges. That's the answer. It's mental imagery. It's like maths without having to think. -Daniel Tammet

The way that I approached numbers, think about them, the same as for language as well-acquiring vocabulary, understanding the grammar, the structures of languages, the rhythm, the music and so-on – these things obviously evolved. -Daniel Tammet

Modern society has evolved to the point where we counter the old-fashioned fatalism surrounding the word 'cancer' by embracing the idea of the Uber-mind – that our will possesses nearly supernatural powers. -Abraham Verghese

I hope my organization will not be around in 10 years, because at a national, state, and community level, we will have evolved into a society that cares about children and the need for play. -Darell Hammond

I actually don't have a great surplus of ideas. Some evolve very slowly, over many years, but I sort of trust that all of the interesting ones will become something that I eventually end up doing. -Miranda July

'Sir' Richard Branson may be the Julian Assange of British business, in that both believe the world revolves around them. Hence Branson's decision to set up an air service between Manchester and London, above the route of the train line that's been taken from him. -Simon Hoggart

My poems… the ones that start out as jokes become these big ponderous things and the ones that start out ponderous devolve into jokes. -Jess Walter

The Earth we evolved to inhabit is turning into something more turbulent and unreliable at a pace too fast for most living things to adapt to. -Rebecca Solnit

We shoot with three cameras, try to shoot both sides of coverage if possible. That allows the actors to overlap and to find moments that feel more authentic and real than what you sometimes would normally get in a scripted drama that's shot more classically. And that's something in 'Parenthood' that has evolved. -Jason Katims

The world doesn't revolve around me anymore. Now it's all about this little baby. I come home after a rough day, I see her and she smiles and nothing but that matters. I know that sounds really cliche but it's the truth. -Michael Easton

It's not a stretch to say the whole financial industry revolves around the compass point of the absolutely safe AAA rating. But the financial crisis happened because AAA ratings stopped being something that had to be earned and turned into something that could be paid for. -Matt Taibbi

Ben & Jerry's evolved into what it is doing and is trying to transition its supply chain, but this is essentially retrofitting. In the social enterprise movement, we see companies whose essence, the products they make, the reason they exist from day one, is because these people see something out in the world that they cannot accept. -Jerry Greenfield

Your personal style should evolve with age. To say you want the same style at 25 as at 45 is a mistake. -Stacy London

You must always be able to predict what's next and then have the flexibility to evolve. -Marc Benioff

Men are at every stage of evolution, from the most barbarous to the most developed; men are found of lofty intelligence, but also of the most unevolved mentality; in one place there is a highly developed and complex civilisation, in another a crude and simple polity. -Annie Besant

I don't want to just revolve. I want to evolve. As a man, as a human, as a father, as a lover. -Matthew McConaughey

Listening and being curious and wide-eyed in the world, I think, is what allows us to move forward, progress, evolve and learn and alter our behavior and become more self-aware. I think that listening is kind of what it's all about. -Andrew Zuckerman

My childhood definitely revolved around my relationship with my brother. I wanted to be different. I wanted to find my way of being as intriguing and interesting as he was. -Martha Wainwright

I think athletically I can be okay with any role, but I'm willing to go over and beyond for my work. My fan base is so strong and loyal, and they wanna see me evolve. I'm where I'm supposed to be and I want to challenge myself with the people that are doing it real big. -Pooch Hall

Since I was a child, my whole life has revolved around music. It's often while listening to a song that ideas for my fashion collections formed. -Hedi Slimane

When my father made 'Jean de Florette' and 'Manon des Sources' back to back, everybody said, 'Why two movies?' But you need two movies to show how criminality evolves, and to tell the story: You can't show a man in love with so many women in one big biopic. -Thomas Langmann

Creativity runs on automatic, no matter what's happening in other parts of my life. I can't help myself. It's been in me, and it evolves in me over the years. It's a condition in me. -Mickey Drexler

I love the idea that I planned my career. I did not. It started out by getting invitations from artists that I really love and respect, to share a stage… I've been very lucky in that I haven't had to create a five-year plan. It's evolved. -M. Ward

People evolve and it's important to not stop evolving just because you've reached 'adulthood.' -J. K. Simmons

Soho is a gritty former mercantile area that has, of course, evolved into the most bourgeois neighborhood in New York. -Andre Balazs

I always like to preserve my freedom. I've never really been attached to any place; that's probably why I kept moving. I like to evolve. -Olivier Theyskens

The aim of being a good designer is to have an influence. If you design furniture or lifestyle, you should influence the way people evolve globally. It's good to have an influence. -Olivier Theyskens

Whatever requires an undue amount of thought or trouble or involves a large expenditure of effort and causes our whole life to revolve, as it were, around solicitude for the flesh must be avoided by Christians. -Saint Basil

From the first time I held an iPhone, the space has evolved quickly, and people have shifted from reading content on their desktops to smartphones and iPads, even long-form stuff. -Matt Mullenweg

Asana and complementary services are bringing the evolved team brain to the entire world. In great companies like Twitter, Uber, Airbnb, Foursquare, and LinkedIn, people already add information to and extract insight from these systems much the same way our hands and brain exchange signals. -Justin Rosenstein

Human survival is something that you can't see in another person; you can see if someone has that will to survive or that will to win; you can't see that, you can only watch that evolve over time. -Dhani Jones

On this ancient and miraculous world, where such beautiful natural and living things have evolved, something has gone wrong when life itself is used as a manufacturing process. -Roger Ebert

In life, everything just happens, and I believe even before we are born that our role in life has already been determined. My main ambition is to continue to write music, which helps me to evolve in a spiritual sense and hopefully to inspire others. -Gerry Rafferty

I've got great people who handle my schedule, and everything does revolve around the children. If there's a parents' night or an Easter bonnet parade or a Nativity play, whatever it might be, then I plan everything around that. -Victoria Beckham

I did stand-up for a long time, and I did classical theater. As much time as you could spend on a stage will always inform you and your job, as you evolve. I feel the freedom of being able to find comedy in the darkest moments because it makes it way more interesting, I think. -Kevin Durand

Sometime in the future, science will be able to create realities that we can't even begin to imagine. As we evolve, we'll be able to construct other information systems that correspond to other realities, universes based on logic completely different from ours and not based on space and time. -Robert Lanza

First comes an idea. Then, characters begin to evolve out of the landscape of that idea. And then, finally, characters dominate: plot is simply a function of what these people might do or be. Everything has to flow from their personalities; otherwise it will not be emotionally engaging, or plausible. -Robert Harris

An eye for beauty locks onto faces that show signs of health and fertility – just as one would predict if it had evolved to help the beholder find the fittest mate. -Steven Pinker

I believe that architecture, as anything else in life, is evolutionary. Ideas evolve; they don't come from outer space and crash into the drawing board. -Bjarke Ingels

Some artists are happy doing the same thing again and again, but my favorite artists are the ones who evolve and grow, and I want to be one of them. -James McCartney

I am an American man, and in America, we still think of figure skaters as little girls in pretty, sparkly dresses – I worked very hard to change the perception and image of figure skating, and I think I've done a great job on my end, but in figure skating, taste needs to evolve. -Johnny Weir

The packaged food business environment is very Darwinian. You're fighting for survival every year; you evolve and grow or you die. It's really that simple. -Douglas Conant

Economic theory dictates that the value of a company is basically the present value of its future profits. To estimate Facebook's value through its future profits, we need to have a view on its user growth and how this will evolve in the next 10 to 50 years. -Didier Sornette

My style has changed and evolved mainly because I've grown to have more confidence in myself. -Kevin Durant

Science is very good at answering the 'how' questions. 'How did the universe evolve to the form that we see?' But it is woefully inadequate in addressing the 'why' questions. 'Why is there a universe at all?' These are the meaning questions, which many people think religion is particularly good at dealing with. -Brian Greene

People have evolved into something selfish, greedy and intolerant. People are unaccepting, because of religion, race, gender, sexual orientation… I've seen it in punk clubs, and I've seen it in the world. -Gerard Way

When you grow up in one town and your life revolves around it, you are very aware of any darkness on the edge of town. That's because it's scary and it's inviting. -Melissa Etheridge

It's very important for a brand to have an identity through the years, but it's very important as well to evolve because times change so fast. -Donatella Versace

Knowing how to keep someone motivated and how to keep a connection are skills humans have learned and evolved over hundreds of thousands of years. A robot can't figure out whether you can do one more push-up, or how to motivate you to actually do it. -Erik Brynjolfsson

Although elephants are far more distantly related to us than the great apes, they seem to have evolved similar social and cognitive capacities. -Frans de Waal

For me, the excitement in architecture revolves around the idea and the phenomenon of the experience of that idea. Residences offer almost immediate gratification. You can shape space, light, and materials to a degree that you sometimes can't in larger projects. -Steven Holl

One of the things I think about as I've evolved as an architect is, 'Where do the poetic impulses come from?' -Antoine Predock

We, all of us, are what happens when a primordial mixture of hydrogen and helium evolves for so long that it begins to ask where it came from. -Jill Tarter

Life has evolved to thrive in environments that are extreme only by our limited human standards: in the boiling battery acid of Yellowstone hot springs, in the cracks of permanent ice sheets, in the cooling waters of nuclear reactors, miles beneath the Earth's crust, in pure salt crystals, and inside the rocks of the dry valleys of Antarctica. -Jill Tarter

It turns out that viruses evolve from each other, like everything else. So if you look at the evolutionary tree of viruses, you can find parts of their genome that haven't changed over evolutionary time. You can recognize what may be a new virus by identifying this little piece of their genome that hasn't changed and is represented on the chip. -Joseph DeRisi

Our moral sense really evolved to bind groups together into teams that can cooperate in order to compete with other teams. -Jonathan Haidt

The form a city assumes as it evolves over time owes more to large-scale works of civil engineering – what we now call infrastructure – than almost any other factor save topography. -Martin Filler

I think every artist subconsciously wants to evolve themselves. Sometimes they get stuck in ruts because of pop culture, peer pressure, stuff like that. But what excites me most is exploring my own musical insights and expanding upon them. -Steve Vai

You know, it's funny how songs continue to grow and evolve and become a new and deeper reflection of your life. -Gloria Estefan

I think we should all live the moment. But you also have to think ahead. You have to think, 'Am I going to be happy with this five, ten years from now? Is it going to let me evolve and grow, or am I going to grow to one day wish I had never done it?' Sometimes you just have to think a little bit ahead. -Gloria Estefan

Everything that an artist does is a risk. Some people want you to stay the same. If you want to evolve, they want to keep you in a certain place. -Gloria Estefan

You could not have evolved a complex system like a city or an organism – with an enormous number of components – without the emergence of laws that constrain their behavior in order for them to be resilient. -Geoffrey West

Digital organisms, while not necessarily any more alive than a phone book, are strings of code that replicate and evolve over time. Digital codes are strings of binary digits – bits. -George Dyson

We evolved in a tropical climate where the smells of plants and flowers were all around us. We spent a lot of time in the trees with a lot of sunlight and no clothes. -Helen Fisher

I think romantic love evolved to enable you to focus your mating energy on just one individual at a time, thereby conserving mating time and energy. -Helen Fisher

Along with our many human propensities, we evolved a huge cerebral cortex with which we make decisions. -Helen Fisher

Technologies evolve in the strangest ways. Computers were created to calculate ballistics equations, and now we use them to create amusing illusions. Creating amusing illusions is a big business if you play it right. -Howard Rheingold

Symbolically, what the rabbis say is that at Passover, what we have to do is try to get rid of our hot air – our pride, our feeling that we are the most important people in the whole entire world and that everything should revolve round us. -Jackie Tabick

Life evolved under conditions of light and darkness, light and then darkness. And so plants and animals developed their own internal clocks so that they would be ready for these changes in light. These are chemical clocks, and they're found in every known being that has two or more cells and in some that only have one cell. -Jessa Gamble

I pay for what I call eccentricity and my will to evolve. -Daveigh Chase

I'm completely taken and impressed by the planning authority of Singapore and its Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). It's the most cutting-edge agency in the world. They have very effective guidelines for development, and they review design as it evolves. -Moshe Safdie

I think music changes and it evolves. -Jana Kramer

Galileo got it wrong. The earth does not revolve around the sun. It revolves around you and has been doing so for decades. At least, this is the model you are using. -Srikumar Rao

We're not just social animals in the conventional way that people think. It's not just a bunch of us who hang out together. We have a very specific pattern of ties, and they have a particular shape and structure that is encoded in our genes. It means that human beings have evolved to live their lives embedded in social networks. -Nicholas A. Christakis

Life rarely presents fully finished photographs. An image evolves, often from a single strand of visual interest – a distant horizon, a moment of light, a held expression. -Sam Abell

When you are away from the game and busy with other areas, you realize that the world does not revolve around baseball. -Cal Ripken, Jr.

My parents are amazing, but when I was like, 'Well, I'm going to be an actress,' and they're all doctors, that wasn't the best and easiest thing to do. I'm sure that I probably went through a year period when I wasn't telling them exactly what I was doing. But that's going to evolve. -Reshma Shetty

Eating is my main hobby now, and most of what I do on the weekend revolves around that. -Daniel Bruhl

Silicon Valley has evolved a critical mass of engineers and venture capitalists and all the support structure – the law firms, the real estate, all that – that are all actually geared toward being accepting of startups. -Elon Musk

I'm interested in the origins of the religious experience, how the history of religion has evolved over the last umpteen thousand years, and where religiosity is going in the future. I think that's a topic I've been chewing on for a few years; I would love to eventually work on and produce a book out of it. -Reza Aslan

The narcissist act is not an act. I actually am a narcissist, very much so. My world revolves around me. -Tucker Max

Ma was legally blind due to a degenerative eye disease she'd had since birth. This meant she was entitled to welfare, and our lives revolved around the first day of every month when her payment was due. -Liz Murray

I certainly don't think I'm deserving of taking up space forever as a human. There's a whole generation of people yet to be born that are going to be so much more evolved than I am. I don't want to take up space. They're going to be better equipped to make the world a better place than I am. -Ashton Kutcher

I have several businesses that revolve around fighting: the training centres, the clothing line and all that stuff. I'll probably be involved in the sport in some way shape or form, and I'll continue to train and be active and do the things that I love to do. -Randy Couture

I think I have just evolved as a person, as a human being. I like fitness. It's an important part of my everyday life, and I enjoy and endorse a healthy lifestyle. -Karisma Kapoor

We evolved living in more sunlight than today. We make our own vitamin D when sunlight hits our skin cells. Many people living in the northern hemisphere, however, suffer from lower levels of vitamin D during the fall, winter and spring. -Paul Stamets

A nice person is a 'yes' person, whereas a good person is a person who accepts their responsibility in things and moves forward and tries to constantly evolve and isn't afraid to say no or challenge someone or be honest or truthful. -Miranda Kerr

It might sound like I'm a dreamer, but economic models have reached their height of evolution. Technology has evolved. What hasn't evolved is mankind's spirituality; everything is from 3,000 years ago. With spirituality comes morals, a better way of thinking. -Damian Marley

Work used to be the No. 1 important thing to me. Everything revolved around it, and to have a new perspective and have something else, my family, not just being a mom but being a part of an incredible family of my own, it makes me have a different perspective on life that I think is richer. -Lindsay Price

Life is a moving, breathing thing. We have to be willing to constantly evolve. Perfection is constant transformation. -Nia Peeples

I was comfortable in my thirties playing the romantic partner, the hero that saves the day, or the woman who is facing a world that revolves around younger kid actors. -Sharon Lawrence

I was in the hockey team in school, played football. One of the challenges for me was to make the team feel better. It helped me evolve, so batting at different positions was never a problem. -Rahul Dravid

I have grown up watching Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Dev Anand, Amitabh Bachchan and the likes. These are actors who have changed with time. They have no shelf-life. They have immortalised themselves because they have evolved with time. -Arjun Rampal

I like to do a movie, to be on it 8, 10 weeks. It evolves as you're working on it. Little things come to you every day. It's a slow process, and when you have to pack it into a short period of time, which you do for television, the experience is not one that I cherish. So if it's going to be television, it's really got to be the right thing. -Bonnie Bedelia

Going to Mars would evolve humankind into a two-planet species. -Buzz Aldrin

My life revolves around my writing, my wife and my son. -James Patterson

One of the interesting things about 'Saw' is that you don't find out about things in sequential or linear order. One of the things that fans have liked a lot is, we don't forget about details. They come back and reveal themselves as the story evolves. -Tobin Bell

We need to evolve a uniform law which does not leave room for any confusion and states that the minimum marriageable age for women is 18 years and that for men is 21 years. But the demand for this should come from within the community. -Girija Vyas

My style has evolved in a nice way, but everyone has bad moments. -Halle Berry

Chennai is the birthplace of a new language in cinema. The audiences here are the most evolved moviegoers to be found anywhere in India. -Anurag Kashyap

You think life is a beautiful thing, and you've got to live accordingly. You've got to magnify all your better feelings and better urges and better conscious ideas, and that's your life's evolvement. -Jon Anderson

We're still growing into that place of higher consciousness; we are becoming a global conscience. The idea is to unravel the onion and let go of the ego and evolve to that place where you perceive everything to be a beautiful experience rather than a daunting experience. -Jon Anderson

Evolution isn't true, because if we evolved from monkeys, how can they still be here? -Stephen Baldwin

When the Constitution was written, the founders had no way of anticipating the new technologies that would evolve in the coming centuries. -Al Franken

As I had visualized, 'Heroine' is shaping up to be a very contemporary film with a different premise and strata. This film, like most of my other films, is a blend of facts and fiction. The film has a larger span, more characters, and costumes… a journey that revolves around an actress's life and the showbiz. -Madhur Bhandarkar

It's very important to not repeat yourself. After 'Delhi Belly,' I was offered 40 'Delhi Belly's and you can't do that! So 'Revolver Rani' is dark and gritty with action, 'Sooper Se Oopar' is a big commercial love story, 'Santa Banta' is a 'theth' Punjabi comedy, 'Golu Aur Pappu' is a kids' film and 'Amit Sahni Ki List' is an urban romcom. -Vir Das

It's important to have people around who love themselves, are true to themselves, who have their own hobbies and their world doesn't revolve around Hollywood. I can always go to my family with any doubts or questions I may have. -Vanessa Hudgens

It's not a random chance that we have Alanis Morissette. She didn't evolve out of a null and void. She came from a former template. She borrowed styles and sounds from a very limited set of other artists. -Greg Graffin

When you have cancer, it's like you enter a new time zone: the Cancer Zone. Everything in the Tropic of Cancer revolves around your health or your sickness. I didn't want my whole life to revolve around cancer. Life came first; cancer came second. -Regina Brett

I was born and raised in Santa Cruz, California, and the whole lifestyle revolves around the beach. My parents met surfing, and the beach was a major part of our daily lives. -Marisa Miller

I've always had a propensity for getting the cursive down pretty well. What it evolved into was my pseudo-waitressing job when I was auditioning. I didn't wait tables. I did calligraphy for the invitations for, like, Robin Thicke and Paula Patton's wedding. -Meghan Markle

Democracy as a system has evolved into something that Thomas Jefferson didn't anticipate. -Hunter S. Thompson

If the anti-Christian agenda will say, 'Here's your identity, you're an evolved amoeba who ought to just go do whatever you want and don't let anybody tell you different,' then they can get you to throw your faith, your character, your courage, and your liberty right out the window. -Kirk Cameron

I have faith in God and not that we have evolved from a rock, not from worshiping the environment or endangered bugs. -Kirk Cameron

It's amazing to me to see how bands evolve and how they take all their influences and come up with their own sound. -Debbie Harry

Wintertime for me is a time when I do a lot of my writing in the studio. It's a time I enjoy. And it's very reflective and a very calming time of the year. Throughout the year I gather a lot of musical inspirations, and this is where I bring them to the studio and see what will evolve musically. -Enya

I find I'm not one of these composers that are, you know, walking along a beach or walking on the mountainside in County Donegal that's, you know, 'Oh, a melody.' It's more a matter of eventually taking that moment with me to the studio, and it begins to evolve. -Enya

I worry about my voice 24/7 when I'm on tour. It's like a pitcher and his arm. It's constantly the thing that my whole life revolves around. -Geddy Lee

Life took over 4 billion years to evolve into you, and you've about 70 more years to enjoy it. Don't just pursue happiness, catch it. -Eric Idle

I like to do books in which a lot of the research and the writing and the thinking revolves around something American. -Bill Bryson

Superman has evolved continually in the comic books over the course of 75 years. He couldn't even fly for years in the original comic books. Kryptonite wasn't added until the '60s. All sorts of things like this. If a character is going to remain vital, he does have to change with the times. -David S. Goyer

Once you have speech, you don't have to wait for natural selection! If you want more strength, you build a stealth bomber; if you don't like bacteria, you invent penicillin; if you want to communicate faster, you invent the Internet. Once speech evolved, all of human life changed. -Tom Wolfe

I'm a lifelong movie addict, and one of my favorite projects is making replica props and costumes. Nearly every one of these – from R2D2 to Hellboy's revolver – ends with the paint job. And it's not just cosmetic. The paint literally tells a story: what this thing is made of, where it's been, what it's been used for, and for how long. -Adam Savage

I always wanted to be an artist, writer and poet since I was seven, and one has to live long enough to evolve as an artist and do one's finest work. -Patti Smith

Biology is a software process. Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells, each governed by this process. You and I are walking around with outdated software running in our bodies, which evolved in a very different era. -Ray Kurzweil

I think New York has evolved in my work just the way the city has. -Paul Auster

Novels usually evolve out of 'character.' Characters generate stories, and the shape of a novel is entirely imagined but should have an aesthetic coherence. -Joyce Carol Oates

You either evolve or you don't. I don't like old people on a rock n' roll stage. I think they look pathetic, me included. And the fact that I represent an era means I can't just go out there and do all new stuff. They would all say, 'Sing 'White Rabbit,' and I'd say no? That's rude. -Grace Slick

In 'Futurama,' the skin color is no longer yellow. They have actually evolved to cartoon skin tone. But they still have four fingers. -Matt Groening

I believe that every writer evolves with every successive novel. I view myself as work-in-progress. -Ashwin Sanghi

Everybody should have a fair deal; everybody should have the chance to life in this world. If we were evolved as human beings, we would hopefully be able to alleviate suffering in the world. -Vivienne Westwood

As technology evolves, it manipulates our culture, and there's a huge opportunity to push ourselves further. I think it actually makes ourselves maybe more human, or at least human in a different way, that we can connect together in amazingly different ways and powerful new ways. -Aaron Koblin

You know, I think there are certain words like 'illegitimate' that should not be used to describe a person. And certainly, we have come far enough in our technology that our language can evolve, because it has an impact. -Aimee Mullins

I don't have an ego that makes me believe the world revolves around me. I am not self-absorbed. -Rush Limbaugh

When all is said and done, we exist only in relation to the world, and our senses evolved as scouts who bridge that divide and provide volumes of information, warnings and rewards. -Diane Ackerman

Feminism is not dead, by no means. It has evolved. If you don't like the term, change it, for Goddess' sake. Call it Aphrodite, or Venus, or bimbo, or whatever you want; the name doesn't matter, as long as we understand what it is about, and we support it. -Isabel Allende

I really just try to enjoy the game and hope that I can inspire young kids. I started playing tennis because of Monica Seles, and I try to promote the sport in the best possible way. Sometimes it's hard because you get upset on court, but I think in life one learns through experiences in order to evolve as a person. -Ana Ivanovic

I have been writing songs and poems since I was a little girl. I started writing short scripts, which evolved into the idea for a book. -Hilary Duff

Learning in a face-to-face human community, as humans have evolved to do over hundreds of thousands of years, may always be the ideal – especially in an endeavor that is as relationship-driven as business. -Warren Bennis

I began my writing life as a poet, so poetry has always been fundamental. I evolved from poetry to journalism to stories to novels. But poetry was always there. -Ben Okri

I don't think language could have evolved if it was the only distinctive trait. It goes hand in hand with our ability to develop tools and technologies, and also with the fact that we cooperate with nonrelatives. -Steven Pinker

The way to understand how different species evolved is to think about the niches that they fill in an ecosystem – basically, how they make a living. -Steven Pinker

Feminism is not only for women It's something everyone can participate in, and evolve together, as the first step in the right direction. I see feminism as a tool to achieve that balance and peace. -Ani DiFranco

I got quite annoyed after the Haiti earthquake. A baby was taken from the wreckage and people said it was a miracle. It would have been a miracle had God stopped the earthquake. More wonderful was that a load of evolved monkeys got together to save the life of a child that wasn't theirs. -Terry Pratchett

Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts. -Bobby Seale

My beauty tricks revolve around eyes. For the early morning shoots, I pop eye pads in the freezer the night before, and when I take them out in the morning they are already cold and active and are great under my eyes. I keep my eye pads right next to my red velvet Ben & Jerry's in the freezer. -Chrissy Teigen

We all have these notions of cool that come about at different points in our lives, and it's interesting in how it evolves or doesn't evolve in different people. -Noah Baumbach

No production of high ideological and artistic value can evolve out of a creative group whose members are not united ideologically and in which discipline and order have not been established. -Kim Jong Il

I cannot possibly conceive of my planet Earth as the centre of a three-tiered universe. I know rather that the sun, around which my planet Earth revolves, is a middle sized star in a galaxy called the Milky Way that has over a hundred billion other suns or stars within it. -John Shelby Spong

I can't work all day and then go home and hang out with the same people. I don't want everything to revolve around the entertainment business. Yes, that's my career, but it's not my life. -Keke Palmer

I know there are fewer women comics, and I think there'll continue to be an inherent sexism in many industries, comedy being one, just because things do take a while to evolve. Things are changing, but it's going to take time. I accept this rather than getting angry about it. -Miranda Hart

I think the kitchen is the new garage. And I think for a guy that wants to go out and be an evolved person, he should know about his local favorite restaurant. He should know how to cook something. -Marcus Samuelsson

There was a time when I could only relate to happy works. With time, my taste has evolved. -Tina Ambani

Apart from finding a first job, college graduates seem to adapt more easily than those with only a high school degree as the economy evolves and labor-market needs change. -Derek Bok

There's no way to escape the culture that has evolved, from which we ourselves have evolved. Naturally, we stress it, break it up, reassemble it to suit our own needs. But it is there – a source of vital strength. -Wole Soyinka

Lebanese mezze, Cantonese dim sum and Basque pinchos have all evolved over years and are designed to make sense together. -Yotam Ottolenghi

I say 'date potential.' The reason why is no matter who you date, anyway, five years from now, you're going to be different, and he's going to be different. The key is to really find somebody that you can grow with that you can change with, evolve with and that you can be partners with. -Hill Harper

In fashion design, you can divide people into two groups. You have people who come with an aesthetic that is there forever, even if it evolves. Then you have people I call 'jumpers.' One season it can be this; the next season it's completely something else. I always knew I am more of a jumper. -Raf Simons

I am always attracted to the moments when a person who is associated with a certain message, image or sensibility evolves. I am very interested in how audiences respond to that maturation and absorb the evolution. -Raf Simons

You learn that the interest is in what you don't yet know and that theories evolve. But we nonetheless have progress and improved knowledge over time. -Lisa Randall

What I do is very theoretical. It won't necessarily have implications for anything anyone is doing tomorrow, yet you know that there's a sense of progress in science, and as we understand more, it just turns out that, somehow, the world evolves with us. -Lisa Randall

I worry that if whatever pops into your head at any instant immediately goes online, you lose the crucial time for your thoughts to simmer and evolve and build up nuance, depth and empathy. -Paul Harding

I support a constitutional conversation, as the Labour Party does, which will allow New Zealanders to evolve a more mature and stable constitutional form, but that's not something that I, as Labour Party, would want to impose, either on the party or on the public. -David Cunliffe

It devolves upon the United States to help to motorize the world. -Walter Chrysler

Upon you, fellow-citizens, as the representatives of the States and the people, is wisely devolved the legislative power. -Millard Fillmore

I think 'Two Towers' is a completely distinct film from 'Fellowship of the Ring' or 'Return of the King.' I think that you can watch them as a group and watch how the story evolves, but I think each one was made in its own entirety, and each one has its own palate of sound and music and color and characterization. -Howard Shore

When the world lacks muscular and wise American leadership, it devolves into total chaos, which, in turn, produces unspeakable evils. -Monica Crowley

I dress some of the most successful women in the world, and meeting these women rubs off on you. A few years ago, the woman was someone I imagined in my head. Now they're real. It's important my work evolve along with me and that I show more facets of myself. -Jason Wu

Change and growth is so painful. But it's so necessary for us to evolve. -Sarah McLachlan

I'm not an artist, and I want to take risks, and when the possibility of failure occurs, it's because the idea is all exciting or interesting as a high wire act, and sometimes you've got to fall off, just by virtue of the fact that you're constantly trying to evolve and do new things. -Peter Morgan

I'd say that we dream primarily the same way that we have consciousness of the world for the same reason. Basically, that our brains evolve to simulate reality and to control what's happening around us. -Stephen LaBerge

Awards shows have devolved into self-parodies – liberals in limos, corny insider jokes delivered by the hosts among bad teleprompter reading from the some of the best thespians on the planet. -John Ridley

None of us can claim to be fair and square in love – and I'm definitely not a hypocrite! Humans are built to evolve with time. It depends on the nature of the relationship you share with a person. It is there today, tomorrow it may be gone; c'est la vie. -Randeep Hooda

Trust is not about what you can or cannot do in the name of love but who you are and what you choose to reveal as things progress and evolve. -Randeep Hooda

A man wants a woman who will place him at the top of his priority list, not second but first. He wants to be the kingpin around which all other activities of her life revolve. -Helen Andelin

This is our bottom line: The ways we give should and will evolve to enable us to achieve greater impact to improve the health and health care of all Americans. -Risa Lavizzo-Mourey

Anybody who does not evolve can become a self-parody. I have to evolve on a daily basis just to keep my own interest in what I do. -Marilyn Manson

You might find me outside with a can of hair spray, spraying it with the hope that the sun will burn a hole in the Earth. Another part of me hopes people will grow up and evolve and get smarter. That's the paradox of Marilyn Manson. -Marilyn Manson

We Americans, who invented traffic, are always being startled by the forms into which it has evolved around the world. -P. J. O'Rourke

I remember the first time I heard a co-worker refer to himself as a foodie. It immediately irritated me. Was he implying that he appreciated food more than other people? That his love of eating was somehow more evolved than mine? Don't all people love the thing we can't live without? -Jessi Klein

When I started out in Facebook, it had only 20 people. I saw it grow to a thousand employees and from five million users to over a billion users. I saw it evolve from a service that served college students to one that served the world. -Ruchi Sanghvi

From the time that I was in high school, my life really revolved around live theater, so it almost feels genetic. -Philip Baker Hall

As a society, we've evolved, and we've recognized that the American family structure has undergone enormous changes. Divorce is all around us, and who among us doesn't know someone who is divorced or has been impacted by divorce. It's not as scandalous as it was. -Laura Wasser

I respond well to what I read of Immanuel Kant's idea that the world as we see it is absolutely a function of the way our brain works. In the modern parlance, it's an evolved machine that we carry with us. -Bernard Beckett

I love seeing a story evolve over several books and watching characters develop. -Marie Rutkoski

I think whenever you come in, whenever you try to evolve a company, people will get nervous. But, if you articulate a clear vision, a clear mission to help them understand their roles in it and ask them to buy into the system, everyone will band together to make it happen. -Dan Rosensweig

Certainly, my advice is that communicating, lobbying, fundraising and engaging the public in policy and politics is far more exciting and inexpensive via the Internet. Old guard organizations like Common Cause had to evolve to embrace this new environment. -Chellie Pingree

For me to make a living acting silly for as long as I can get away with it, I think the most viable way to make that happen is to evolve into more traditional comedy. I've really been putting in the work. -Steve-O

Cartoonists create so many cartoons on any given topic that we can follow the life cycle of a comic idea and how it evolves over time more quickly than we can with a form like the novel. -Robert Mankoff

I grew up in the motel business, and it evolved into hotels. -Penny Pritzker

The very large brain that humans have, plus the things that go along with it – language, art, science – seemed to have evolved only once. The eye, by contrast, independently evolved 40 times. So, if you were to 'replay' evolution, the eye would almost certainly appear again, whereas the big brain probably wouldn't. -Richard Dawkins

We frequently look into the future of mankind and see dangers. We see if we carry on doing what we are doing in 20 years' time there will be no rainforests left, just to use one example. Looking into the future may be one of the reasons that brains evolved in the first place. -Richard Dawkins

There does seem to be a sense in which physics has gone beyond what human intuition can understand. We shouldn't be too surprised about that because we're evolved to understand things that move at a medium pace at a medium scale. We can't cope with the very tiny scale of quantum physics or the very large scale of relativity. -Richard Dawkins

Changes in size are not a consequence of changes in shape, but the reverse: changes in size often require changes in shape. To put it another way, size is a supreme regulator of all matters biological. No living entity can evolve or develop without taking size into consideration. Much more than that, size is a prime mover in evolution. -John Tyler Bonner

My songwriting has evolved, just as I've evolved as a person. -John Oates

Economics evolved as a more moral and more egalitarian approach to policy than prevailed in its surrounding milieu. Let's cherish and extend that heritage. The real contributions of economics to human welfare might turn out to be very different from what most people – even most economists – expect. -Tyler Cowen

My predecessor, P. W. Botha, had an inner circle, and I did not like it. I preferred decisions to evolve out of cabinet discussions. That way, we achieved real co-ownership of our policies. -F. W. de Klerk

In the past, my brain would never stop. Now I'm a father; the world no longer revolves around me. When I'm with Bronx, he's got my complete attention. He's the only thing that occupies my thoughts. -Pete Wentz

Since I quit banking, all my major life decisions, when they could, have revolved around writing. -Philipp Meyer

Though music transcends language, culture and time, and though notes are the same, Indian music is unique because it is evolved, sophisticated and melodies are defined. -Dayananda Saraswati

The genus Drosophila is one of the great success stories. There's hundreds of species within the genus. They're on every continent except Antarctica, they're in tropical rain forests, they're in deserts, they've evolved many exotic mating behaviors, and they're capable of incredibly long-distance flights. -Michael Dickinson

One of the primary reasons why the human brain has evolved to look so far into the future is so that we can take actions in the present that will bring us to a better future rather than a worse one. -Daniel Goldstein

Our brains are continuing to evolve, and perhaps a few tens of thousands of years from now, our descendants will walk around with five pound brains, allowing them insights that we can't imagine. -Seth Shostak

Country music has to evolve in order to survive. -Blake Shelton

The world cannot evolve if girls refuse to become women. -Marianne Williamson

As for my own views, they've of course evolved over the years. This conception of 'renouncing beliefs' is very odd, as if we're in some kind of religious cult. I 'renounce beliefs' practically every time I think about the topics or find out what someone else is thinking. -Noam Chomsky

I don't believe that we evolved moral psychology; it just doesn't seem plausible to me as a biological phenomenon. -Tom Stoppard

Leisure time is only leisure time when it is earned; otherwise, leisure time devolves into soul-killing lassitude. There's a reason so many new retirees, freed from the treadmill of work, promptly keel over on the golf course: Work fulfills us. It keeps us going. -Ben Shapiro

Whether you're trying to learn in hockey or trying to learn in life, I've always tried to be observant and tried to learn more, tried to evolve, whether it's as a hockey player or as a person. With each year, I try to do that. -Sidney Crosby

That's one of the ways language evolved, by some very obscure form becoming common usage. And I must say that I'm very intrigued by use of language and slang, and criminal underground terms. -Ricky Jay

Our home, just like our garden, evolves. We experiment, try out different things and new colors until we feel content. Try to keep the metaphor of home as garden in your consciousness. -Alexandra Stoddard

If one wants to go on living, one must evolve. Before, when we composed, we would start by a series of music themes. Once created, we would hire writers and lyricists to make up the text and the story line. I was the first to do this backwards with 'Man of La Mancha.' -Mitch Leigh

I think the more I learn, the more I see, and what you see makes your eyes and talent evolve. -Stacey Bendet

You do need to maintain some of yourself and know who you are, but that doesn't mean you can't evolve. -Grant Show

I love women. My life revolves around them. -Nikki Sixx

It is important to the typical 'Star Trek' fan that there is a tomorrow. They pretty much share the 'Star Trek' philosophies about life: the fact that it is wrong to interfere in the evolvement of other peoples, that to be different is not necessarily to be wrong or ugly. -Gene Roddenberry

I take a biocentric point of view. I look at things from the point of view of the Earth and the laws of ecology. As opposed to the anthropocentric point of view, where everything revolves around humanity. -Paul Watson

Just as movies, radio, and television evolved into new forms over time, the ebook will also become something more than just a way to read books. It will become its own specific and unique way of creating and sharing experience. -David Gerrold

The definition of an 'operating system' is bound to evolve with customer demands and technological possibilities. -Virginia Postrel

Ocean planets might be very common in the universe because water is very common in the low-temperature environments where planets form and evolve. This might be especially true for super-Earths, which can retain volatiles more easily thanks to their larger mass and surface gravity. -Dimitar Sasselov

Darwin and his successors taught us how our biosphere evolved, and thereby transformed our conception of humanity's place in nature. In the twenty-first century, space scientists are setting Darwin in a grander cosmic context – probing the origins of Earth, stars, atoms and the universe itself. -Martin Rees

It is astonishing that human brains, which evolved to cope with the everyday world, have been able to grasp the counterintuitive mysteries of the cosmos and the quantum. -Martin Rees

Space doesn't offer an escape from Earth's problems. And even with nuclear fuel, the transit time to nearby stars exceeds a human lifetime. Interstellar travel is therefore, in my view, an enterprise for post-humans, evolved from our species not via natural selection, but by design. -Martin Rees

In the animal world, there are all kinds of behaviors that are binary: for example, to flee or to fight. In any evolutionary environment, knowing your opponent's decision would not be advantageous for long because your opponent would evolve the same recognition mechanism to also know you. -Chris Adami

I think everyone evolves over the years, but I have always had the silhouette that I know suits me. I am never going to wear a frothy, poufy thing that sticks out because I have found a style that works for me, and I stick with it. -L'Wren Scott

You'd expect, as good Darwinian creatures, we would evolve to be fascinated with how the world really is, and we would use language to convey real-world information, we'd be obsessed with knowing the way things are, and we would entirely reject stories that aren't true. They're useless. But that's not the way we work. -Paul Bloom

Authoritarian systems evolve. Authoritarianism in the Internet Age is not your old Cold War authoritarianism. -Rebecca MacKinnon

It is not inevitable that the Internet will evolve in a manner compatible with democracy. -Rebecca MacKinnon

Based on the Gaza precedent, Israel should not simply be expected to withdraw from territory and let it devolve into a state of anarchy. The West Bank is simply too close to Israel's major population centers and infrastructure to allow it to become another launching pad for rockets. -Edgar Bronfman, Sr.

Even when I'm alone, my life revolves around film. I think that's why I live in New York, not L.A., where it's so concentrated. -Paul Dano

There are so many things that have evolved since I wrestled. They don't have periods anymore. They have rounds… it confuses the younger demographic. -Kurt Angle

I was brought up to understand Darwin's theory of evolution. I spent hours and hours in the Natural History Museum in London looking at the descriptions of how different kinds of animals had evolved, looking at the sequence of fossil bones looking gradually more and more and more and more like the modern fossil. -Jane Goodall

I've evolved, but I'm the same dude, I'm just in a different place. We all change, we all grow. I shouldn't be in the same place that I was 30 years ago; I should be more intelligent, you know. -Ice T

My songs pretty much revolve in my brain most of the time – usually, whatever's coming next. -Jeff Mangum

Morocco has a lot to do in terms of democracy. The daily practice of democracy evolves in time. Trying to apply a Western democratic system to a country of the Maghreb, the Middle East, or the Gulf would be a mistake. We are not Germany, Sweden or Spain. -Mohammed VI of Morocco

With so much to be aware of, awareness bracelets have reverted to signifying nothing more than color itself. Idealism has devolved into fashion. -Timothy Noah

The nature of a protective immune response to HIV is still unclear. Because in a very, very unique manner, unlike virtually any other microbe with which we're familiar, the HIV virus has evolved in a way that the immune system finds it very difficult, if not impossible, to deal with the virus. -Anthony Fauci

Capitalism and political systems – like companies – must constantly evolve to stay vital. -Thomas Friedman

Your brand is your public identity, what you're trusted for. And for your brand to endure, it has to be tested, redefined, managed, and expanded as markets evolve. Brands either learn or disappear. -Lisa Gansky

Technology is at the forefront of everything these days – communication, work. It's amazing and scary at the same time how robots have evolved, but I find it hard to believe that robots will completely rule the world. Not in my lifetime anyway. -Graham McTavish

Ancient, woman-centered words and beliefs never, like, fall off the planet. Having long done taken on a life of their own, they – like womankind – evolve, and survive. Chameleon style. -Inga Muscio

I'm one of those people where, the more responsibility I have, the better I become. The more I rise up to it. The less responsibility I have, the more I can easily devolve. -Matthew Davis

I like to believe we're always looking to evolve as writers. -Jim Rash

I think an art collection is a lot like a diary. Your taste evolves with time. I try to never sell anything, because it's part of my journey. -Delphine Arnault

We need to build change in to our systems and let these systems evolve as circumstances change. Change is inevitable, but we need to do a better job of dealing with it, because when we start building huge gleaming monoliths, I think we start getting into trouble. -Daniel Suarez

I don't want to disrupt anything. We never conceive of our products as disruptive – we don't look at something and say, 'Let's disrupt that.' It's always about how we can evolve this and make this better. -Evan Spiegel

There are still states that have not evolved so much as California, that still skimp on recognition and, even worse, the rights of immigrants. -Enrique Pena Nieto

It's important to remember that we evolved. Now, I know that's a dirty word for some people, but we evolved from common ancestors with the gorillas, the chimpanzee and also the bonobos. We have a common past, and we have a common future. -Louise Leakey

It was important for me as a theater artist to allow myself and my interests to evolve over time and allow my notion of what success meant to evolve over time. I've always had a day job and never been just acting. But it didn't make me feel like I wasn't doing what I was supposed to be doing. -Allison Tolman

The hypocrisy of some is that we like to think of ourselves as sophisticated and evolved, but we're still also driven by primal urges like greed and power. -Michael Leunig

One common denominator of super-affluent alpha men is the conviction, unchallenged every day, that the world revolves around them. -Tina Brown

My career has evolved at its own peculiar pace. American careers are supposed to have a much more singular direction than I've been able to… stomach. -Tim Curry

The ephemeral part of this work is that in music production, the sounds evolve so much faster than it used to, which means that you really have to put in a lot of work and effort in constantly designing the next sound that will move the culture forward. -Steve Aoki

By the time my first solo record came out, I was making a handsome living as a record producer. I had worked with the Band, Janis Joplin and all of these other artists in the Albert Grossman organization. So as my so-called solo career evolved, I never felt pressure that I had to come back and top when I might've done before. -Todd Rundgren

It seems like there are two worlds out there – one that has revolved around 'Breaking Bad,' and then the one that I've been in, which just kind of observes it from afar. -Todd Rundgren

Before there were any sort of 'recordings' there was performance. If we are devolved back to the Stone Age tomorrow, there will be performance. -Todd Rundgren

Over tens and hundreds of thousands of years, we evolved to find certain things stimulating, and as very intelligent, civilized beings, we're enormously stimulated by problem solving and learning. -Tom Chatfield

I'm involved in everything from a nutraceutical company to a pharmaceutical company to a medical device company. My whole world revolves around health, and I feel it's my responsibility, in a way, and I say it this way, and I don't take this lightly. -Montel Williams

I'd love to meet Darwin. He caused such controversy over whether God created the earth in six days or whether we evolved over time. I'd love to discuss that with him – what a fantastic conversation! -Isabella Rossellini

There are consequences with age, so you have to evolve. I've loved becoming a filmmaker. But I would love to continue modeling, and there isn't really any job for me. It's being marginalized – that's the sad part. -Isabella Rossellini

I loved my career as a model, and that evolved into being an actress. -Isabella Rossellini

In any business, you have to evolve. -Ross Levinsohn

The speed at which technology evolves affects everyone; we repeatedly hear that constant innovation is overwhelming for consumers, who struggle to keep pace. -Ross Levinsohn

The art of phlebotomy originated with bloodletting in 1400 B.C., and the modern clinical lab emerged in the 1960s – and it has not fundamentally evolved since then. You go in, sit down, they put a tourniquet on your arm, stick you with a needle, take these tubes and tubes of blood. -Elizabeth Holmes

Just like Barack Obama, my views on gay marriage have evolved, and now I am a reluctant groom. -Edmund White

Since babyhood, I've always evolved from one thing to another. My mother gave me ballet lessons at 6 as part of her enthusiasm for the arts and for life. We went to museums, to the theater. While her own talent was untapped, she worked for church causes. -Judith Jamison

Women, the way I see it, are very evolved people. They're more mature, they're more aware of their feelings, in touch with their feelings. They're connected to things that matter more in life. They know what's important. Men basically run around like idiots until we meet somebody who can show us that those things are important. -Rob Reiner

Touch seems to be such an important tool for enhancing social cooperation and affiliation that we have evolved a special physical route along which those subliminal feelings of social connection travel from skin to brain. -Leonard Mlodinow

I've always loved shows that combine both approaches – that have a mythology and a set of characters, whose stories develop and change, and where the relationships evolve and fracture. -Jonathan Nolan

My philosophy is my learning process. Until you die, you must evolve and improve. -Miyavi

Unfortunately, music devolved instead of evolved. The music business got into the hands of lawyers and accountants rather than the entrepreneurial creative people, and that's when the beginning of the end started. It's all based on money instead of art and creativity. -Gary Wright

The human brain has evolved the capacity to impose a narrative, complete with chronology and cause-and-effect logic, on whatever it encounters, no matter how apparently random. -Robin Marantz Henig

If you ever have a kid who doesn't know what to do, stick him in art school. It's amazing what evolves. -Ridley Scott

You have to know how to evolve with age without trying to hang on to your younger image of yourself from the past. -Cate Blanchett

Humans are mutants, everything's a mutant – things that evolve. -Oscar Isaac

In all warm-blooded creatures, which are the highest evolved and have feelings, passions and emotions, which reach outward into the world with desire, which may be said to really live in the fuller meaning of the term and not merely vegetate – in all such creatures, the currents of the desire body flow outward from the liver. -Max Heindel

The sculptor who deals with form seeks to imprison beauty in a marble statue that will withstand the ravages of time during millenniums; but a marble statue is cold and speaks to but a few of the most evolved who are able to infuse the statue with their own life. -Max Heindel

My greatest surprise was that so much of what we think is common sense is just prejudice, and so much of what we think is scientific fact is about as scientific as the idea that the sun revolves around the earth. -Amy Bloom

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

I've struggled a lot to get where I am. I initially got rejected by every producer. But no complaints. I enjoyed each and every moment of the struggle. My first break came in 1997 from Krishna Vamsi and then Puri Jagannadh, who is my closest friend. I owe everything I am to him. Our careers have evolved simultaneously. -Ravi Teja

Back when the concept of organ transplants qualified as science fiction, novelist Maurice Renard wrote a thriller called 'Les Mains d'Orlac.' Call it a bastard offspring of 'Frankenstein;' its plot revolved around the old theme of Science Giving Us Stuff We Shouldn't Have – in this particular case, restoring severed body parts. -Kage Baker

TechCrunch evolved on the Web as a new way of presenting the news on the Web. -Mike McCue

I think we were colonized by aliens 250,000 years ago, and they genetically altered our DNA to be primates into homo erectus and humans. I'm very interested in how we evolved so suddenly, which obviously ties in with the alien thing. -Al Jourgensen

Certain gorillas are more evolved than certain human beings I know. -Andy Serkis

I'm fascinated by management and organizations: how organizations get things done and how successful organizations are built and maintained, how they evolve as they grow from start-ups to small companies to medium companies to big companies. -Mitch Kapor

Learning how to understand how technology evolves, using tools like a Technology Road Map, is what you need more than anything to ride on top of the tsunami instead of being crushed by it. -Peter Diamandis

As humans, we have evolved to compete… it is in our genes, and we love to watch a competition. -Peter Diamandis

All of us are linear thinkers. We evolved in a world that was local and linear. You know, back 100,000, 200,000, millions of years ago, when we were evolving as a human species, nothing changed. You know, the life of your great-grandparents, you, your kids – it was the same. And so we are local and linear thinkers. -Peter Diamandis

I think there is something about… unless you come from a really evolved family that allowed you to talk about your feelings and felt like a safe environment, then you aren't really prepared to do that when you grow up. -Spike Jonze

We have people in our lives who help us evolve along the way. If you're lucky, you find someone who evolves along with you, and that's what you call a long-term relationship. -Richard LaGravenese

At first, laws evolved out of religious doctrines. It followed that they were recognized only when advantageous to those who practiced the same religion and who appeared equals under the protection of the same gods. For the members of all other cults, there was neither law nor mercy. -Leon Bourgeois

We can find a great sector or business, but we're investing so early that unless there's this tenacious grit, determination, resourcefulness, ability to evolve, it won't work. -Dan Levitan

'YouKu' means what's best and what's cool in Chinese. So, the whole product philosophy really revolves around how to help users, from a massive video database, finds what's best and what's cool. -Victor Koo

On top of opportunities in further traffic growth, there are increasing opportunities to fully realize the potential of the online video ecosystem, as China continues to evolve into a consumer-driven economy. -Victor Koo

We keep thinking that the human is evolving. No, the human has evolved to its extent. What's happening now is the organization of humans: just like cells organize to form people, people are organizing to form humanity. -Bruce Lipton

My privacy concerns have to do with the world, other people, technology intruding upon us – what Talmudic scholars once called 'the unwanted gaze.' Here I see major issues and concerns as society evolves, and I've written often on the subject. -Guy Gavriel Kay

Many of the familiar little things that we use every day have typically evolved over a period of time to a state of familiarity. They balance form and function, elegance and economy, success and failure in ways that are not only acceptable, but also admirable. -Henry Petroski

The word 'universe' is obviously not intended to have a plural, but science has evolved in such a way that we need a plural noun for something similar to what we ordinarily call our universe. -Leonard Susskind

Any time you can take a book a little beyond the realm of pure entertainment, I think it's a good thing. But I don't really have it on my to-do list when I write a book. It just evolves naturally during the process of immersing yourself in a subject. -Mary Roach

To keep your he-man jaw muscles from smashing your precious teeth, the only set you have, the body evolved an automated braking system faster and more sophisticated than anything on a Lexus. The jaw knows its own strength. The faster and more recklessly you close your mouth, the less force the muscles are willing to apply. -Mary Roach

Animals' taste systems are specialized for the niche they occupy in the environment. That includes us. As hunters and foragers of the dry savannah, our earliest forebears evolved a taste for important but scarce nutrients: salt and high-energy fats and sugars. That, in a nutshell, explains the widespread popularity of junk food. -Mary Roach

We are fashioned not by our genes, but by our environment – by the family and socio-historic conditions in which we evolve. -Michel Onfray

I don't think we will put higher-ed out of business. I think we'll evolve it. More access, higher quality, lower costs, more global reach. -Sebastian Thrun

Because of streaming, serialized television has become less of a dirty word when you're pitching shows. I had to fight for that for so long as someone who's always gravitated towards ongoing story lines with characters that evolved and changed and storylines that continued over longer arcs. -Jason Katims

When I heard that the bees were in trouble, the fact that they're disappearing and not coming back to the hive, which is a big issue, since a third of the food we eat comes from plants, I figured you couldn't tell the story of the bees without the story of the flowers and how they basically have evolved together for over 150 years. -Louie Schwartzberg

Both 'Consenting Adults' and 'Glengarry Glen Ross' revolve around the economic stresses of the '90s. They are about what people do when they're pushed against that wall, and how they're manipulated. They are both morality tales, though in very different genres. -Kevin Spacey

There are recurring elements in popularized fairy tales, such as absent parents, some sort of struggle, a transformation, and a marriage. If you look at a range of stories, you find many stories about marriage, sexual initiation, abandonment. The plots often revolve around what to me seem to be elemental fears and desires. -Kate Bernheimer

With our evolved busy hands and our evolved busy brains, in an extraordinarily short period of time we've managed to alter the earth with such geologic-forcing effects that we ourselves are forces of nature. Climate change, ocean acidification, the sixth mass extinction of species. -Kate Bernheimer

The SF genre, of course, is really an organically evolved, marketplace-determined, idiosyncratic grab bag of themes and signifiers and characters and icons and gadgets, some of which hew to the realistic parameters and paradigms embraced by science, others of which partake more of fantasy and magic. -Paul Di Filippo

I get to live down my reputation for being cantankerous if I slowly evolve towards being a really good live show. -Ariel Pink

The great thing about a culture is that once you really get it going, it evolves on its own. It's self-organizing. It's dynamic. It just feeds on itself. -John Mackey

As a company grows, its purpose grows with it. It has the potential to evolve your purpose. -John Mackey

More than once in the history of Whole Foods Market, the company was unable to collectively evolve until I myself was able to evolve – in other words, I was holding the company back. My personal growth enabled the company to evolve. -John Mackey

The reason space missions need artificial gravity is clear: humans simply did not evolve to live in zero gravity. -Andy Weir

You always have to evolve – the minute you start building a moat around you to keep yourself safe, you're going to lose. -Diplo

Ideally, really ideally, you want to get to a place where you can have creative control over the material you do – choices, at least, anyway. And you want your choice of script and role. But do you really want your life to revolve around trying to maintain your privacy? -Jai Courtney

Whatever I write has to evolve around my taste in music at that moment, because that always changes. -Daron Malakian

Climate change is transforming the world in profound ways that continue to evolve. -Martin O'Malley

All my novels are about people who strive to heal and evolve. -Michel Faber

Let's face it: my life tends to revolve around food, and I love feeding people. -Ruth Reichl

I usually dislike second books in series. The only second installment I ever loved was 'The Empire Strikes Back,' and I think that was wonderful because it evolved the characters while not seeming like a bridge. -Pierce Brown

I do think I'm country, but your definition of that word might be different from my definition. In my opinion, country music, the sound of country, has always evolved. But the one thing that has not changed is the story element. And I think country songs are truthful songs about life written by country people. -Sam Hunt

It's interesting how songs can evolve. Sometimes I'll write a song that feels relevant in the moment, but four years later, I don't want to sing it anymore. Then something will happen in my life, and the song becomes relevant again. -Jenny Lewis

I guess my interest in performance has evolved and changed many times over the years. -Allison Tolman

I've evolved in my writing to tell a more emotional story – my publisher, Random House, has urged that. -Alan Furst

As the leadership team, we're taking bold and decisive action to evolve our organization and culture. This includes difficult steps, but they are necessary to position Microsoft for future growth and industry leadership. -Amy Hood

I read the script for 'Guncrazy' in 1985 and loved it because it was one of the few scripts I'd come across that revolved around a strong female character. -Tamra Davis

We all evolved out of the same three or four groups in Africa, as black Africans. -Craig Venter

Cells will die in minutes to days if they lack their genetic information system. They will not evolve, they will not replicate, and they will not live. -Craig Venter

As mechanistic biologists, we are hoping that by understanding how the virus works at the molecular level, we will be able to predict with more accuracy how it will evolve. -Jennifer Doudna

I have evolved my own exercises, for the muscles I wish to keep firm, and I know they are right for me because I can feel them putting the proper muscles into play as I exercise. -Marilyn Monroe

Of course you can't 'trust' what people tell you on the web anymore than you can 'trust' what people tell you on megaphones, postcards or in restaurants. Working out the social politics of who you can trust and why is, quite literally, what a very large part of our brain has evolved to do. -Douglas Adams

As authors evolve and try to trace the precedents that have shaped their work, it sometimes becomes a matter of identifying the shadowy figure in the back row of the mental photograph, or of grabbing at the tail of a memory that's just slipping out the window into thin air. -Virginia Euwer Wolff

God never gives us more than we can handle. Everything that comes our way is coming our way so that we can grow and evolve. -Debbie Ford

Your soul's desires compel you to grow, evolve and move closer to your highest potential. -Debbie Ford

You have to continue to grow and evolve as individuals in order for your marriage to evolve. It takes two pillars to support a structure. If those two pillars become one, you have a structure that teeters. -Tamara Tunie

Our cinema has evolved in last 60 years because we have made people happy through our films. The main purpose of our storyline is to spread happiness. Our cinema has an emotional connect. -Anupam Kher

When I see how fast technology is advancing, my mind thinks of evolution and how organisms also have to evolve or adapt in order to, in their case, survive. -Tony DiTerlizzi

People always make the mistake of calling an idea small or stupid because they don't understand how it's going to evolve. -Sam Altman

If humans evolved in a tiny area of Africa, they only saw plants and animals within a 100-kilometre radius for a million years. When they began to migrate, there would have been different animals and plants – and potentially a lot of allergy issues. -Barry Marshall

Of course everybody's thinking evolves over time. Only dead people cease learning, and I am not certified dead yet. So I am still learning. -Meles Zenawi

My method of getting a play across the footlights is like a revolver shooting: every line has a bullet in it and comes with an explosion. -George Bernard Shaw

The fact that the colors in the flower have evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; that means insects can see the colors. That adds a question: does this aesthetic sense we have also exist in lower forms of life? -Richard P. Feynman

A prayer that must have a cannon behind it better never be uttered. Forgiveness ought not to go in partnership with shot and shell. Love need not carry knives and revolvers. -Robert Green Ingersoll

How does the past ambush us? How can we be accurate about what happened, how can we be true to it? And can war be declared over? And can we ever evolve from the notion of war, of nations, of us versus them? -Michael Winter

What attracted me to immunology was that the whole thing seemed to revolve around a very simple experiment: take two different antibody molecules and compare their primary sequences. -Cesar Milstein

I believe that writers have a responsibility to evolve the language, whether by introducing new words or new usages. Shakespeare alone is responsible for something like 3400 words and phrases. -Adam Mansbach

I haven't checked, but I highly suspect that chickens evolved from an egg-laying ancestor, which would mean that there were, in fact, eggs before there were chickens. Genius. -Ta-Nehisi Coates

I've evolved as a human being, and I've taken more risks. I've let go of judgment. I don't know when the best stuff is coming – I sink into the process in a different way. I paint more, and my vision is stronger, but I don't think my music is better, because nothing is ever better than your first material. -Sophie B. Hawkins

I have watched SS2 evolve over the years into an incredible vehicle that is going to open up space to more people than ever before. -David Mackay

There's been a big evolution since the days of personal computing. People had a concept of one computing device per family or maybe per person. We've clearly evolved to computing devices becoming more personal. -Sundar Pichai

I don't feel uncomfortable in forbidding institutions, and work with, say, prisons or psychiatric institutions could be one of the things that evolve out of the Laureateship. -Chris Riddell

We saw simply distribution was changing, content, premium content, premium stars; we're going to be able to do more in the world as it evolves. -Patrick Whitesell

I think, at least for me, I'm so impressed by Shanghai and how all of China continues to evolve. On a style level, you're seeing this increased sophistication and brand awareness. -Kevin Kwan

On average, an e-commerce client who evolves into a premier enterprise client increases their annual spend by 10 times in that first year. -Jon Oringer

Shutterstock has evolved from an image-based marketplace for small businesses to a much broader platform, with a large and expanding addressable market opportunity. -Jon Oringer

I could try to incorporate or reflect in my models what it is that an employee, manager, or entrepreneur does: to recognize that most are engaged in their work, form expectations and evolve beliefs, solve problems, and have ideas. Trying to put these people into economic models became my project. -Edmund Phelps

Henry David Thoreau was an oddball job quitter and ne'er-do-well who evolved into the bearded sage of literature, natural history, and civil liberties. -Michael Sims

Online transactions, once relegated to leaps of faith, have evolved into our status quo. We no longer ask ourselves whether or not it's wise to buy online. Instead, we ask whether or not it's wise to deal with a particular person, service provider, or business. -Leah Busque

I think each book sort of finds its own theme as it goes on. 'Warded Man' was fear. 'Desert Spear' was exploration of the other. 'Daylight War' was relationships. Some of this is intentional, and some of it evolves naturally. The series as a whole is obviously something I have given a lot of thought to, but each book is its own animal as well. -Peter V. Brett

The direct market has evolved into a machine that is very good at selling corporate-owned superhero titles published by two main companies: DC and Marvel. -Chris Roberson

Each FBI employee understands that to defeat the key threats facing our nation, we must constantly strive to be more efficient and more effective. Just as our adversaries continue to evolve, so, too, must the FBI. -James Comey

Just as our adversaries and threats continue to evolve, so, too, must the FBI. The key to this evolution lies with our greatest assets: our people and our partnerships. Every FBI professional understands that thwarting the threats facing our nation means constantly striving to be more effective and more efficient. -James Comey

The FBI is engaged in a myriad of efforts to combat cyber threats, from efforts focused on threat identification and sharing inside and outside of government, to our internal emphasis on developing and retaining new talent and changing the way we operate to evolve with the cyber threat. -James Comey

I think women have such rich emotional lives that they are expressive about. I also think they're funny. I like watching strong female characters, and I like writing them. I don't know if it's conscious that I gravitate towards women, but it's certainly evolved that way. -Darren Star

OKCupid's model is almost entirely based on advertising, which is the way most online media is monetized these days, whether it's the news or whether it's sports, and we think online dating is going to evolve in the exact same way. -Sam Yagan

The sort of the most efficient way for online dating marketplace to evolve and, in fact, any marketplace to evolve is to have one really big market where people can enter and exit as they please, where people have really advanced search, sort, and filtering technology. -Sam Yagan

I'm always sorry to finish a book, to let go of characters I love, people I've struggled to understand for years, people who evolve before me. -Kathryn Harrison

I go to assume a task more difficult than that which devolved upon Washington. Unless the great God, who assisted him, shall be with me and aid me, I must fail; but if the same omniscient mind and almighty arm that directed and protected him shall guide and support me, I shall not fail – I shall succeed. -Abraham Lincoln

Humans have continued to evolve quite a lot over the past ten thousand years, and certainly over 100 thousand. Sure, our biology affects our behavior. But it's unlikely that humans' early evolution is deeply relevant to contemporary psychological questions about dating or the willpower to complete a dissertation. -Annalee Newitz

In my novels, there are twelve ancient 'memory tools,' all now lost. Each of the 'Reincarnationist' books revolves around a different tool. -M. J. Rose

I've been intrigued by this question of whether we could evolve or develop a sixth sense – a sense that would give us seamless access and easy access to meta-information or information that may exist somewhere that may be relevant to help us make the right decision about whatever it is that we're coming across. -Pattie Maes

As an organization, Esri is strong, and we're continuing to grow. We're dedicated to this. And we're excited to see what you can accomplish and to watch your work evolve. -Jack Dangermond

Now, as a writer, the whole world is your nail polish display, and what's more, you can help yourself. A thrilling, colourful array of gorgeous human peculiarity revolves before your eyes, and you still can't quite believe it's all yours for the taking. -Lynn Coady

The evolvement of proteolysis as a centrally important regulatory mechanism is a remarkable example for the development of a novel biological concept and the accompanying battles to change paradigms. -Aaron Ciechanover

This year, 1996, has been designated the 'Year of the Vaccine,' commemorating the 200th anniversary of Edward Jenner's vaccination of James Phipps with cowpox virus and subsequent challenge with smallpox virus. Insight into the nature of viruses, and how viruses interact with mammalian cells, has evolved since the turn of the century. -Peter C. Doherty

The immune system has evolved the capacity to react specifically with a very large number of foreign molecules with which it had no previous contact while avoiding reactivity for autologous molecules, naturally antigenic in other species or in other individuals of the same species. -Baruj Benacerraf

As biologists, we contemplate with admiration and awe the wondrous array of sophisticated cell interactions and recognitions evolved in the T cell immune system, which must be a model for other similarly complex biological systems of highly differentiated organisms. -Baruj Benacerraf

The existence of common features in different forms of life indicates some relationship between the different organisms, and according to the concept of evolution, these relations stem from the circumstance that the higher organisms, in the course of millions of years, have gradually evolved from simpler ones. -Hans Adolf Krebs

I have a fascination for extra-judicial societies and underground cultures, and in situations where justice can only be found outside the law, and how these societies have evolved over the centuries. -Ann Nocenti

I know my predecessors have written a Green Arrow who has a lot of thoughts about social justice, but that was a more evolved, older, wiser Green Arrow. -Ann Nocenti

As our technology evolves, we will have the capacity to reach new, ever-increasing depths. The question is what kind of technology, in the end, do we want to deploy in the far reaches of the ocean? Tools of science, ecology and documentation, or the destructive tools of heavy industry? -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

People are tough. We're evolved for less food; more exercise; less sleep; less security; more paranoia. The irony is that we're so good at what we do. We strive for more food; less exercise; more sleep; more security; less paranoia – and we've succeeded. -Jeff Carlson

What I wanted in life always was to write something as good as 'Pinocchio.' I wanted to write. I wanted to evolve. I wanted to grow. -Patti Smith

I am always trying to evolve, so I like to read parenting books and things like that. -Kourtney Kardashian

I think that when you get right down to it, people do evolve on different issues. And, you know, I'm pro-life. And I was begrudgingly the other way. -Donald Trump

I do love the evolution of people in general. I think it's a beautiful thing when someone progresses and evolves in life. -Khloe Kardashian

Ultimately, criticism that 'The Real World' has devolved into a lesser enterprise comes from the viewers who came of age alongside it, not the teens of the moment that MTV has always existed for. -Andrea Seigel

The loneliest, most down-on-his-luck person can have a dog who adores him. The most bitter, sour person can light up with joy when he sees his dog. It is magical, and as 'The Dog Master' reveals, it is biological – we evolved together. -W. Bruce Cameron

In my office I have a sign that says, 'Don't think. Just write!' and that's how I work. I try not to worry about each word, or even each sentence or paragraph. For me, stories evolve. Writing is a process. I rewrite each sentence, each manuscript, many times. -David A. Adler

Starting out, they told me: 'You're a good-looking guy. We'll put you in this role, and you can be a conduit for the audience into this side of the story.' But I've grown up, and that's not what I want anymore. My concept of the job I do has evolved. And it is a job, nothing more. -Sam Worthington

I started out as a physicist; however, I am what I have become. I have evolved, with the help of many colleagues in the international scientific community, into an interdisciplinary scientist. -Alan J. Heeger

Human beings evolved opposable thumbs for a reason. The sense of reward you get from making something with your hands can't be earned any other way. It's obvious that people learn faster from 'hands-on' experience than they do watching someone else do something. -Mark Frauenfelder

Whatever content you create, let it revolve around your interests. You shouldn't create things just because you think other people want to watch it. -Connor Franta

That godfather of the modern action blockbuster, 'The Godfather,' is entirely character driven, propelled by the transformation of a crime lord's youngest son, who breaks bad when he evolves from white-sheep war hero to blood-soaked inheritor of his father's empire. -Steve Erickson

It goes without saying that before its culture and literature can continue to evolve, Latvia first must endure the political comedy of creating a stable, functioning and unthreatened democracy. -Amity Gaige

Humanity evolves when we realise that animals have the same rights to the Earth as we do. -Radhanath Swami

The same thing is to be understood of all bodies, revolved in any orbits. They all endeavour to recede from the centres of their orbits, and were it not for the opposition of a contrary force which restrains them to and detains them in their orbits, which I therefore call Centripetal, would fly off in right lines with a uniform motion. -Isaac Newton

I played in Velvet Revolver, which is a raw, bombastic blues band with a punk rock edge to it. It's like everything is based around the blues, no matter what the groove is. -Scott Weiland

After boarding school in Switzerland, at, like, 14 or 15, my life clicked, and I just realized, 'I don't want to be like anyone around me at my school. I don't think the world revolves around money.' -Albert Hammond, Jr.

My goals for myself have changed as my career has evolved and as I've grown as a writer. -Sarah J. Maas

The custom of going to a party only when we have been invited is a necessary, attractive, decent way for a party to evolve. -Letitia Baldrige

The most pivotal moments in people's lives revolve around emotions. Emotions make stories powerful. -Brandon Stanton

My show in Egypt was called, 'The Show,' or, 'Al Bernameg' in Arabic. Basically, it was a political satire show. It started on Internet by three, four-minute episodes, and then it evolved into a live show in a theater, which was something that was unprecedented in the Arab world. -Bassem Youssef

Lobbyists didn't descend from a spaceship. They evolved organically from the way we do business. -Christopher Buckley

We're trying to evolve a lot away from YouTube because YouTube is awesome – they have a huge audience, and we started there – but then you're at the mercy of their algorithms a lot, too. They can change anything, and it's really up to them, and you can't say anything about it. -Anthony Padilla

I used to make my grandparents pay a dollar to watch me sing 'Grease' songs and 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' in their living room. I was always an entertainer, and I would always do all that stuff, but it slowly evolved into a career, which is great, but it wasn't a plan. -Zoe Kravitz

One of the problems with compromise in one area of Scripture is where do you stop compromising? If Christians accept the idea of human evolution, then why not accept the idea that our sinful tendencies are really just evolved tendencies? -Ken Ham

Absolutely everything undergoes evolvement – whether it's technology, journalism, the NFL, medicine. -Marv Levy

Working out the social politics of who you can trust and why is, quite literally, what a very large part of our brain has evolved to do. -Douglas Adams

I was born into a world in which the most compelling stories are through film. But that wasn't always the case. Everything changes; everything evolves. -Chris Milk

My premise is that there's something hardwired into our DNA, that we as a species came and evolved from caves and clans and tribes, and therefore, we as a species care more about the things that are local to us than we care about the things that are 'over there' from us. -Chris Milk

Moscow and Washington have evolved a delicate process for 'de-confliction' in the tight Syrian airspace, where accidents or miscommunication could be disastrous. -David Ignatius

The ballet world I don't think is an art form that is quick to change or to adjust or evolve. -Misty Copeland

Trends come and go, and style evolves. It's important to have pieces of jewelry that are timeless and look chic despite ever-changing fashions. -Karen Elson

As we know, all sports evolve tremendously, and our sport is no different. It's really not the same thing at all as it was in 1972. It's a different type of horse we're using. The style of riding is quite evolved, the way the courses are built, the materials used… it's virtually unrecognizable. -Ian Millar

Mr. Trump has evolved to the point where he understands that a grass-roots strategy must be supplemented with paid advertising to be able to combat the negative ads that will run against him – and he is prepared or preparing to spend what it takes to make sure his message gets to the voters. -Corey Lewandowski

The phone is one hundred, one hundred and ten years old. There was a middle period where the government had a broad ability to surveil, but if you look at human history in total, people evolved and civilizations evolved with private conversations and private speech. -Brian Acton

The best companies in the world have all had predecessors. 'YouTube' was a dating site. You always have to evolve into something else. -Kevin Systrom

The purpose of life is to obey the hidden command which ensures harmony among all and creates an ever better world. We are not created only to enjoy the world, we are created in order to evolve the cosmos. -Maria Montessori

To say that Christ is the term and motive force of evolution, to say that he manifests himself as 'evolver,' is implicitly to recognize that he becomes attainable in and through the whole process of evolution. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

If you see voters as rational, you'll be a terrible politician. People are not wired to be rational. Our brains simply evolved to keep us alive. Brains did not evolve to give us truth. Brains merely give us movies in our minds that keeps us sane and motivated. But none of it is rational or true, except maybe sometimes by coincidence. -Scott Adams

Our generation grew up with technology. It evolved as we grew up. This new generation has had it since they were babies. That's crazy. It fundamentally changes they way they understand and think about technology. They've never known life without it, whereas we knew life without the Internet. -Brit Morin

Ethics are pre-determined and a matter of discovery, not a evolved concept. -Simon Conway Morris

The common ancient ancestor of mulluses and chordates could not possibly have possessed a camera eye, so quite clearly they have evolved independently. The solution has been arrived at by completely different routes. -Simon Conway Morris

As I've evolved, I'm capable of doing a lot of things at once, but really, as an entrepreneur and business person, it's more about adding the right structure to be able to handle scaling all those things as opposed to being at the forefront of doing a lot of them. -Rob Dyrdek

As skateboarding evolved, it evolved away from competition. Having a best-trick contest doesn't work. -Rob Dyrdek

There are always losers when society evolves. In the free market, these losers are expected and encouraged to retrain and find new ways to survive and thrive. -John McAfee

SK will evolve and develop based on its corporate culture and human resources. -Chey Tae-won

The spirituality of the dance, that's something that's evolved for me in the past ten years or so. I'm still trying to figure out where that's taking me. -Savion Glover

My sister and I had jointly heard the narration of 'Revolver Rani' in Tigmanshu Dhulia's office. After hearing the narration, my sister was very scared and adamant that I should not do this film, as my character was twisted, neurotic, violent and abusive. -Kangana Ranaut

Information technology is at the core of how you do your business and how your business model itself evolves. -Satya Nadella

My own thinking has evolved. You find Africanisms in American speech. You find an African influence on United States culture. There are all kinds of Africanisms in America, as you would expect, if you really thought about it… That whole thing is much broader; the influence is much broader than I first understood. -Amiri Baraka

My whole life revolved around TV as a kid. I would come home and make sure I finished my homework every night by 8 o'clock, generally so that I could sit down and watch TV from 8 to 10. As a kid, it was 'Family Ties' and 'Roseanne' and 'Growing Pains' and 'Perfect Strangers' and 'Golden Girls.' I mean, I watched everything. -Simon Helberg

Our public portrayal of fathers has shifted during my life. TV fathers have 'evolved' from real people like Sheriff Andy Taylor, Beaver's dad Ward Cleaver and Heathcliff 'Cliff' Huxtable, to cartoon dads like Homer Simpson and Seth MacFarlane's caricatures in 'American Dad!' and 'Family Guy.' -Donna Brazile

Medicaid and Medicare both need to be devolved to the states. -Gary Johnson

Clearly, we are a species that is well connected to other species. Whether or not we evolve from them, we are certainly very closely related to them. A series of mutations could change us into all kinds of intermediate species. Whether or not those intermediate species are provably in the past, they could easily be in our future. -George M. Church

We have the ability to completely change our environment to go… to take on… to inherit, in a certain sense, things far beyond our DNA, and that's inheritable. And we can see evolution in action as our ideas evolve and undergo a kind of Darwinian selection not at the DNA level. And we can go off into space. -George M. Church

I will make the argument that we are poorly adapted to our current environment. I mean, we did not evolve to sit all day and be exposed to giant amounts of really tasty food. -George M. Church

Every piece of geopolitical strife that's happening in the world today is revolved around energy, either trying to grab resources or people using resources to fund radical groups. -Mark Ruffalo

I want to evolve each season. I never want to be one of those brands where people know what they're going to see. I always want an element of surprise. One thing I never want to do is copy what anybody else is doing. I have a signature, and it's very important to me to stay true to that. -Victoria Beckham

Yes, you want to do studio movies, but I also want to grow as an actor, and an actress like me is not going to get roles where you grow and evolve in a studio film. It's just not gonna happen. -Octavia Spencer

When you have… bipartisan support, it shouldn't devolve into a bipartisan fight. -Chuck Fleischmann

As Obamacare devolves and starts to fall apart, what do you get? This big-government largesse that is involved in Obamacare, my fear is that it's going to devolve into a single-payer system, and we really can't afford to let that happen. -Chuck Fleischmann

I think these al Qaeda franchise groups have clearly evolved into a much more dangerous strain. -Michael T. Flynn

Gangs have evolved. The stereotypical gang member covered in tattoos and wearing colors does not really exist any more. There's this fear that it could be any kid, but by any kid, that means any Latino kid. -Susana Martinez

To me, the machinima artform has essentially evolved now into the Let's Play streaming world. That's what it is: it's people performing and creating art using video games. It's just more personality-driven rather than story-driven these days. -Burnie Burns

'Red vs Blue' as a show has evolved dramatically. It looks an entirely different show to what we started with, but the format of the show has changed so much over the years, too. -Burnie Burns

The great jazz radio stations have a duty to continue evolving their format just as audiences ask the musicians to evolve. How do you do that with a form of music that has 100 years of recorded history? How do you also keep it contemporary so you don't isolate your listeners? These are major questions. -Jason Moran

I feel that, historically, the Art Deco period has the most resonance for me. As a person, it has to be the plucky Clara Bow, the heroine of American silent movies of the 1920s. She embodied feminine dressing mixed with men's style. All this then evolved into the exquisite style and simplicity of Coco Chanel. -Anouska Hempel

You get these moments of thrill. There you are, at 3:00 in the morning, and you know something about how we evolved that nobody else in the world knows. It's a thrill of discovery. You make this breakthrough, and you find something. It's this wonderful, wonderful scavenger hunt when you got to the end. It's just so great to be a scientist. -Pardis Sabeti

Especially working in infectious disease, it's very interesting because these infectious diseases, these agents, they evolve over time. So it's very much an arms race and understanding how each changes to protect itself and to continue. And so it's very much this puzzle-solving but with this great urgency and importance in what you find. -Pardis Sabeti

I would say to you, have faith in yourself – believe in what you are doing, and, most important, be a person of integrity. It is totally up to you, and no one else, how your life evolves. -Jon Huntsman, Sr.

Working improvisationally in my studio with dancers, it's completely different. We don't have any starting point; we don't have an end point. We don't have anything we are trying to show or do. The picture evolves from nowhere. -Lois Greenfield

Shore Leave is the one who evolved the most – because he started as a one-off joke because we were gagging on how the G.I. Joe vocationally specific-themed characters reminded us of the Village People. We made a sassy Village People kind of guy, and then we brought him back. -Christopher McCulloch

For fifty years, debates about French anti-Semitism mainly revolved around France's record during the Second World War, when the Vichy government collaborated with the Germans. -Tom Reiss

Pergamon, a prosperous city in western Anatolia, was fabled to have been founded by Hercules' son. Like many Hellenistic cities populated by Greeks who intermarried with indigenous people, Pergamon after Alexander the Great's death (323 B.C.) had evolved a hybrid of democracy and Persian-influenced monarchy. -Adrienne Mayor

A high-quality public education can build much-needed skills and knowledge. It can help children reach their God-given potential. It can stabilize communities and democracies. It can strengthen economies. It can combat the kind of fear and despair that evolves into hatred. -Randi Weingarten

Species co-evolve with the other species they eat, and very often, a relationship of interdependence develops: I'll feed you if you spread around my genes. A gradual process of mutual adaptation transforms something like an apple or a squash into a nutritious and tasty food for a hungry animal. -Michael Pollan

A cow out on grass is just an incredible thing to behold… Cows and other ruminants can do things we just can't do. They have the most highly evolved digestive organ on the planet, called the rumen. And the rumen can digest grass. It takes grass, cellulose in grass, and turns it into protein, very nutritious protein. We can't do that. -Michael Pollan

Bacteria evolve, and so they become resistant to existing drugs. Sometimes they revert, depending on how damaging the mutation is to the life cycle of the bacteria. Mutations that give rise to resistance against particular compounds do increase, and that is why you constantly have to have new ones. -Thomas A. Steitz

We will not find the inner strength to evolve to a higher level if we do not inwardly develop this profound feeling that there is something higher than ourselves. -Rudolf Steiner

Man has evolved a mutual relationship with nature on earth, but his power to change its surface has grown so tremendously that this may become a curse instead of a blessing. -Walter Gropius

There are a few entrepreneurs whom I look up to. My dad, Ralph Lauren, has definitely evolved into a lifestyle brand of clothing and home furnishings. -Dylan Lauren

I'm happy with all of my past outfits, as they have felt right at the time, and your style always evolves. -Chiara Ferragni

My style evolves day by day; I love change. -Chiara Ferragni

I'm inherently a chameleon… to not evolve is to not live. -Andra Day

I'm grateful for the fans who've been there from the beginning and am excited about how we've grown and how we've evolved now. -Andra Day

Reggeton has changed very much, musically. It has evolved. The artists have also evolved. -Yandel

Music's always going to evolve, and we can't really stop that, so we have to figure out what's the next thing and how we move towards that as opposed to just being like, 'Oh, cool: let's just continue making tear-out EDM hits that are gonna last 2 months, and then somebody else is making the exact same thing under a different name.' -Jillionaire

Having arrived in London to seek refuge during the civil war in Sudan, where I was born, the thing I'm most proud of is having totally evolved. I came here not knowing how to speak English, but I went to school and learned; I adapted to this new culture. -Alek Wek

The songs were there before the band was there, and it's my songs. And it's like, we're not in the 1950s. We can't call ourselves, like, 'The Revolvers' – it just doesn't work that way. And 'The Lukas Graham Band' just sounded wrong. -Lukas Forchhammer

I don't understand why we give up genres, and the Western is a great genre. It's a part of the rich history of cinema and who we are as we've evolved as people, as a community. -Antoine Fuqua

The joke is that no matter how much we think we can evolve, we'll never escape our limitations. -Greg Mottola

The problem of sexism is getting better, but I don't know if it's getting better fast enough. We see more roles for women that don't entirely revolve around the way in which they function in a man's life, but typically those women are almost always white, and even then, there are only a few of them. -Aja Naomi King

You can have a coach for five or six years, and eventually, that coach has so little new to say. So get somebody else to give a different point of view. Somebody will see something I don't see and vice versa. You evolve with your game and your coaches. -Martina Navratilova

The way I evolved was playing straight-ahead jazz into playing more fusion-type stuff just because I was young enough to get into it. As I get older, I find myself coming back to where I kind of started. -John Abercrombie

When I was a kid, I would do Andrew Dice Clay jokes for my siblings. Like, we'd be on vacation, and I'd just recite Andrew Dice Clay jokes. They seemed to think that was pretty funny. Then it evolved into 'Wayne's World.' -Nick Kroll

I love to be free to explore, research, and evolve. -Issey Miyake

All peoples have evolved extraordinarily precise ways of settling issues about the things that matter to them. -Ian Hacking

I love the way this sport has evolved and impacted every segment of society. Now you have cross training and weight training in every sport and from middle school kids to senior citizens. -Lee Haney

Clothing started as an armor for me. It was one of the ways that I protected myself from the world. It evolved into a form of creative expression. -Tracee Ellis Ross

I'm surrounded by all these strong women – my publicist, my manager, and my wife – and sometimes I think that women are more evolved than men, and they are able to process a heartache better. -Dierks Bentley

Why would you codify a set of safeguards you might want to change as technology evolves and you face new risks of privacy, in addition to changing safeguards that might need to be relaxed in an emergency situation? -Tom Cotton

That's the great part about television: It's alive, and it changes and evolves with the way the characters evolve. Stuff that happens to you in your life when you're shooting a TV show, you have to be careful, because it might end up in the show. -Thomas Jane

These pirates are evolving, and we must stay with the curve and evolve with them to stop these incidents from happening. -Richard Phillips

I wonder if, as the tech to deliver content continues to evolve, we will start seeing the one season / 6-8 hour show that ends at a peak moment rather than is cancelled because it sucks. -Brad Feld

We've always wanted to control the video player for our videos. We really want to evolve how comments on videos work. -Freddie Wong

After Reconstruction, black newspapers evolved from being a propaganda arm into a kind of opposition press, because even the friends of former slaves had their fears. -Darryl Pinckney

Basically my whole life revolves around soccer. I don't take many vacations. Everything just gets put on the back burner because of my training. I miss out on a lot of weddings and family functions. But at the end of the day, I'm sitting here as a world champion, and it feels pretty good. -Carli Lloyd

We should explore ways to make us a more amazing species. A more fascinating society. We should embrace our innovations and evolve with them. -Brad Feld

You have to be confident in who you are and what you're doing. Of course, you try to evolve. I would never tell you, 'Today is the best I will ever be.' I'm always trying to be a better chef, a better dad, a better person. -Guy Fieri

A lot of things have changed since I made my debut in 2004. The way cricket is played has changed. The kind of players that are coming in the Indian team are drastically different than what we were used to. My role is quite the same. You only evolve with time, and that's what I am trying to do. -MS Dhoni

Like the majority of Alaskans, I supported a constitutional amendment in 1998 defining marriage as only between a man and a woman, but my thinking has evolved as America has witnessed a clear cultural shift. -Lisa Murkowski

Once upon a time, the homemaker was just Mom, but now we've evolved and come to a place where we're celebrating grandmas, grandpas, moms, dads – all the people that keep it safe and clean for our kids – and the overall health for ourselves so we can continue to function and do the variety of things we all do. -Christina Milian

The reality is the world's shifted; the world's evolved. We now measure ourself by total device space. We have a much bigger opportunity than we've ever had in the past to grow our business, but we have to rethink how we look at our business. -B. Kevin Turner

Our ability to predict how the federal funds rate will evolve over time is quite limited because monetary policy will need to respond to whatever disturbances may buffet the economy. -Janet Yellen

The future path of the federal funds rate is necessarily uncertain because economic activity and inflation will likely evolve in unexpected ways. For example, no one can be certain about the pace at which economic headwinds will fade. More generally, the economy will inevitably be buffeted by shocks that cannot be foreseen. -Janet Yellen

I know of Conor McGregor. This sport has evolved even from when I first entered the octagon. I think people are finding out that you have to talk the talk, and you have to – more importantly, you have to walk the walk. -Brock Lesnar

I feel very lucky 'Arrested Development' was so successful because I never really got too much attention, and I was able to evolve instead of only being seen as one character. -Alia Shawkat

There is a lot of growth taking place in capturing aspirational consumers and converting them to luxury as they evolve. -Priya Sachdev

I was always taught by my father to challenge myself and to continue to evolve in my career, and I saw the move to Manchester United as an opportunity to grow as a player and as a person. -Henrikh Mkhitaryan

I'm always trying to learn and grow, so my diet has, over the years, evolved. -J. J. Watt

There is still so much room for me to get better. Everyone in this sport evolves so quickly. You could take six months off and come back to a totally different game. That's why I'm always in the gym working. Even if I don't have a fight lined up, I'm still in there working to improve my overall game. -Stipe Miocic

When I was young, I was supposed to study in the afternoon, and 4 – 5:30 P.M. was playtime. The entire day would revolve around that time. We would play anything – kabaddi, cricket. Those one and half hours would feel like 5 minutes. -Sushant Singh Rajput

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

As far as aging on screen is concerned, I am sure the TV audience don't go by stereotypes – they have evolved and become smarter over the years. -Divyanka Tripathi

One thing I was proud of when I did the college talks was that, although stories revolved around experiences that I had in wrestling, one did not need to be a wrestling fan to enjoy them. -Mick Foley

Evolution is a constant state. You evolve and become comfortable in situations in which you might have felt alien in the past. -Arjun Kapoor

I think we are here to challenge ourselves and make ourselves better people and not just sit around in the world simply floating through life. You should be trying to do something great and making yourself better. You should be trying to evolve. That's what I'm trying to do, and that is very important to me. -Dominick Cruz

I'm working relentlessly at becoming a better fighter than I was yesterday. I think I've really shown that I'm a more evolved fighter these days than I've ever been. -Alistair Overeem

I love 'Pac-man', 'Mortal Kombat', and 'Street Fighter'. 'Ryu' is my favourite-ever character – I'd love to leapfrog the Hadouken. I never really evolved too far beyond that, but I have played '2K17'. -Becky Lynch

Dance music has evolved very much. From DJs playing at the Olympics, to playing at the Super Bowl, working with Cirque Du Soleil and even getting recognized at the Grammys with awards, dance music is growing in a big way. -Little Louie Vega

I think part of the beauty of our relationship with jewelry is that it can change and evolve as we do ourselves. -Erika Christensen

As I evolve, my interests change, always. But, what is consistent is that I always look for something new to play. -Juliette Lewis

Myself, I believe that black theatre continues to evolve, and the success of writers like Bola Agbaje and Rachel De-lahay is proof that fresh voices continue to emerge. -David Harewood

A lot of the things you see in science fiction revolve around black holes because black holes are strong enough to rip the fabric of space and time. -Michio Kaku

My music has evolved to reflect that multigendered, multiracial, multigenre music. Whether I realized it before or not, I'm most influenced by that rock and soul hybrid. -Ricky Reed

Moving to San Francisco affected me in a pretty profound way, in a lot of respects. I think it helped me evolve my sound and think outside of the space I'd been in in Sacramento. The scene there is so insular and kind of feeds on itself: you just end up playing the same shows with the same people for the same people. -Tycho

Everything has to evolve. Music has to go somewhere. That's what keeps it fresh. -Fat Joe

Back during the most dramatic and challenging time in our history, when we first came together with wolves, we had no idea that it was changing everything, but we literally evolved together. Without us there would be no dogs, and vice versa. -W. Bruce Cameron

I think I always wanted to be an artist. I sort of just followed my passion right out of high school, and everything kind of evolved for me. -Lisa Frank

I always try to evolve my sound – innovate, improve, be different but still Martin Garrix. It all starts with an idea in my head, which I work on until it starts to shape itself into a track. -Martin Garrix

The future consists of cross specialisation; that is how university systems abroad have evolved. -Shiv Nadar

As I continue to evolve as a filmmaker, I'm going to continue to do different stuff. -Jonathan Levine

I try not to be an ideologue about anything. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, and I'm willing to evolve. -Mark Cuban

It's important for youth, black youths particularly, to be able to fill in the blanks of themselves so they can know completely who they are, but also all the country to understand what this means: what the civil rights movement does to us as people. It is part of the journey that we must be on in order to become fully evolved human beings. -Forest Whitaker

I think the Rainbow Flag will survive forever, primarily because it's the perfect flag, regardless of whatever political meaning it may have or evolve to. -Gilbert Baker

I think being a little older and a little more determined and being a little more evolved in my case and maturity in the kind of music I was doing and how I was doing it really helped to keep me grounded and with an audience that could appreciate what I was doing, who grew with me and evolved with me and kept me alive and around. -Al Jarreau

There are so many different narrative traditions across the world, and each of those traditions has evolved dramatically over time. Once I understood that, I felt truly free; I could write and invent the way I wanted to because there never has been only one way to tell a good story. -Ken Liu

I want people to say, 'He evolved throughout his whole career.' I wanna be able to have the most number one records ever. The most Top 10 records ever. -Future

The image of the band has always been something that's evolved or changed with every record cycle that we've done. I think, in a lot of respects, that's because we were so interested in having a visual representation for the music that we were making. -Andy Biersack

Provision of best services to the citizens is our top priority, and Punjab government has evolved a coordinated programme in this regard. -Shehbaz Sharif

It's crazy how the world evolves and the audience gives you an opportunity to really grow and live out your dreams. -Luis Fonsi

You kind of grow up and evolve in everything you do. -Luis Fonsi

I was not big on playing house. I preferred make-believe that revolved around adventure, featuring pirates and knights. I was also domineering, impatient, relentlessly verbal, and, as an only child, often baffled by the mores of other kids. -Ariel Levy

There are… certainly more innovations on 'Revolver'… but the truth of the matter is 'Sgt. Pepper' has something that was just completely different and unique at that moment. -Steven Van Zandt

A lot of times, it seems like social media has devolved into people just yelling at each other and not really conversing. -Kumail Nanjiani

Being a fish out of water is tough, but that's how you evolve. -Kumail Nanjiani

I never, ever decided that I had to write a novel because, to me, there's no such decision that ought to be made. It's only something that I felt compelled to do, and it began to evolve. -Arundhati Roy

Firstly, 'Dance plus' is the only dance reality show in India with an entire panel of captains who rose to fame through their dancing skills. The show will introduce audiences to new trends and evolved dance forms through solo, duo, and group performers. -Remo D'Souza

Kids who evolve into creative adults tend to have a strong moral compass. -Adam Grant

Having that college experience and a social life that didn't revolve around Hollywood was absolutely crucial. -Haley Joel Osment

Everything happens the way it's supposed to because it's just like cavemen – you evolve and grow and learn. -Tionne Watkins

Yes, our band will change and evolve, but we want to establish the reality of what this band truly sounds like. -Isaac Hanson

For better or worse, we have evolved for sure, but we've also maintained a certain core about who we are, which is we were raised on late '50s and early '60s rock n' roll and R&B, and you can always hear that throughout. And that's just always been who we were. As much as we've evolved, that's stayed the same. -Isaac Hanson

I never want to make a complete, 180 reactional record. I wanted a connection to what I've done in the past but still move forward and evolve. -Washed Out

The sooner we become a multi-planet species, the safer the species is, and the stronger the guarantee that we're going to continue to evolve. -Ron Howard

All genres of music have to evolve, grow, and expand in order to maintain. I don't think there's anything wrong with the growth of R&B. I welcome it. -Ne-Yo

Kajol as Vasundhara is a tough cookie. Raghu and her world collides, and they have different ideologies. The plot revolves around their core beliefs and their disagreement with each other. -Dhanush

I don't like characters who are either good or bad. I just don't experience that in life, so my writing hasn't evolved that way. -Marti Noxon

I think enslavement has evolved to what may seem appropriate to this day's generation. Modern enslavement is imprisonment. -Aldis Hodge

My work today is perceived as being classic, but when I first started out, it was a break from the norm. Since then, I have continued to reinvent myself. I don't change my style, but I allow it to evolve. -Giorgio Armani

The one thing about internet language, people join it, and what quickly evolves is an 'internet dialect,' as it were. -David Crystal

The most compelling economic and geopolitical story in 2017 will almost certainly revolve around China. The world's most populous country bankrolled an economic boom with high levels of debt and leverage, with which the government is now forced to reckon. -Anthony Scaramucci

You grow older, you evolve. -Billy Eichner

The credit derivative market would never have evolved but for the preexistence of the derivative markets because so much of the technology was borrowed. -Blythe Masters

A maturing process, and growth, is always painful. You ask any teenager, they will tell you, and it's just like that for the country. We need to grow; we need to evolve. -Arundhati Bhattacharya

Cinema has evolved, and it is high time we stop policing it so rigorously. -Ali Fazal

I know where I am headed and how will I evolve. There's nothing stopping you. I don't have a family background on films, and I will need to work for it. -Ali Fazal

I'm always trying to find ways to evolve. Evolution, for me, is a very spiritual thing, getting closer to the creator, closer to God, and becoming a better version of yourself. -Sterling K. Brown

For me, I tend to enjoy wearing any period costume. I love how fashion and clothing has changed and evolved through time. -Billy Howle

Blockchains are digital organisms. As organisms evolve through changes in their DNA, blockchain protocols evolve through changes in their code. And like biological organisms, the most adaptive blockchains will be the ones that survive and thrive. -Fred Ehrsam

The IT organization can't drive or lead a digital transformation. It has to come from the business and the business strategy, because they're fundamental to how a company or an organization evolves. -Michael Dell

I don't want to change the world; I want to evolve myself. -Marion Cotillard

I think that governments are going to get disrupted by the blockchain. I think in the same way that the Internet forced everyone to evolve, the Blockchain is going to change the game again. -Adam Draper

The Internet requires evolved forms of governance that we haven't figured out as a planet. I'd love to help make that easier and make that possible. -Jeremy Allaire

With greater extensibility and programmability, bitcoin can evolve to enable transformations in how all forms of property are secured and exchanged, how voting and governance function, including spilling into the automation of commercial law, audit, and accounting. -Jeremy Allaire

From my own perspective, I value productivity more than tradition, but the customs of the House evolve slowly. -Jared Polis

Behind every great athlete is a masterful coach that inspires the athlete to evolve into the strongest performer they can become. -Cathy Engelbert

I don't think malls are going to go away. People still need somewhere to go, but they do have to evolve. -Angela Ahrendts

I literally never ate fruit or vegetables before. My diet instead revolved around ice cream, chocolate, peanut butter and jelly eaten with a spoon, pick-n-mix, and lots of cereal and pasta – I was a sugar monster. -Ella Woodward

Everyone wants to be an arena act, and it's making country music evolve. People are cutting things more for that arena environment. But who's to say that that is a sign of any more of a successful career than what James Taylor has been able to do, when he still comes and plays the Ryman every two years? -Tracy Lawrence

Things are always going to evolve and change. You might not always like the direction of it, but people's tastes change. -Tracy Lawrence

You just keep doing stuff, and one thing evolves into another. Then suddenly it's like, 'Oh, wait, I'm here surfing against Kelly Slater and all these guys I grew up watching.' -John John Florence

For me, what's crazy is CRM has really evolved, and keeps evolving. -Parker Harris

One factor that favors easier adjustment in EMEs is that U.S. monetary policy normalization has been and should continue to be gradual, as long as the U.S. economy evolves roughly as expected. -Jerome Powell

I've definitely grown and evolved as a person, as an artist, you know. Just in terms of my style, my taste, my influences, everything… That's a part of being an artist I think. -G-Eazy

I think every artist's next work will reflect a new chapter in their autobiography. Each album tells a story about where they were at during a particular period and how they have evolved. -G-Eazy

The world has devolved into a much more hardened and lethal place since that devastating September morning when Islamists assassinated nearly 3,000 Americans in the worst terror attack on U.S. soil. -Pete Hoekstra

When I was cast in 'Batman v Superman,' I was sent a huge stack of comics. They provided a ton of information about Cyborg and how he has evolved as a character over the years. -Ray Fisher

There is something about Dior that reminds me of New York City Ballet. They both have a classic, glamorous basis but are trying to evolve the arts in new and innovative ways. -Justin Peck

The danger of a rock band is repeating oneself. It's our greatest fear – that it evolves into the myopia of a semi-successful band that's in love with its own shadow. -Bryce Dessner

Our bodies and minds evolved and were adapted for hundreds of thousands of years for tasks like climbing a tree and picking apples, or hunting rabbits, or looking for mushrooms in the forest. They were not adapted to the very gruelling work that is involved in field work – ploughing, harvesting, bringing water, digging weeds – things like that. -Yuval Noah Harari

People have long feared that mechanization might cause mass unemployment. This never happened because, as old professions became obsolete, new professions evolved, and there was always something humans could do better than machines. Yet this is not a law of nature, and nothing guarantees it will continue to be like that in the future. -Yuval Noah Harari

We have to evolve, we have to change, and in order to do that, we have to initiate the change. -Edwin Catmull

What needs to change is the nature of advertising itself. That business hasn't really evolved since the days of Don Draper. -Daniel Lyons

I personally have a hard time with a lot of the creation stories that revolve around the creator being a white man. It seems very limiting to me. So God to me is… so limitless and magical and loving and beautiful. -Miranda Rae Mayo

I want tension in my business. Tension creates change. Change is necessary to evolve and prosper. I am never satisfied. -Kenneth C. Griffin

We've evolved over millions of years to sense the world around us. We use our five natural senses to perceive information. But the huge amount of information mankind has accumulated and stored online cannot be perceived by these senses. -Pranav Mistry

Charlottesville is a quiet town with friendly people, good schools, lots of churches, parks, and a bustling, growing community that more or less revolves around one of the country's great public universities. Volunteerism is rampant, and dozens of nonprofits hustle about, solving problems and helping those in need. -John Grisham

My dad teaches film and has done for 40 years, so I've really grown up in a movie household. All the walls are covered in movie posters, and many of the evening meals at 7:30 revolved around film discussions. -Jacqui Ainsley

When it comes to melodies, production, and sound in pop music, people try to be formulaic and solely concerned with what's resonant in a way that is so cheap and ugly. It actually just devolves culture, ultimately. -Kelela

If you want to evolve and reinvent yourself, you will need to observe people and explore a lot. -Rithvik Dhanjani

The human brain long ago evolved a mechanism for rewarding us when we encountered new information: a little shot of dopamine in the brain each time we learned something new. Across evolutionary history, compulsively seeking information was adaptive behavior. -Daniel Levitin

When you're a child actor and play the precocious kid, the temptation is to wear leather pants or a cutoff shirt to redefine yourself. But I never felt the need to randomly reshuffle the deck and say, 'Don't call me Peter. Call me Pete.' I just figured you evolve naturally, and you'll be recognized for what your successes are. -Peter Billingsley

We have this yearning to know the answers to the big questions about space and why we're here; we can't evolve fast enough to figure these answers out on our own, but we can do it through artificial intelligence. But there's also some very scary downsides that could come if we don't put the right safety precautions in there. -M. Shadows

My whole life revolved around gymnastics because I loved it so much. I home-schooled because of it; I changed my eating habits. -Laurie Hernandez

The challenge is moving fast and staying great. You have to keep the bar high. There's only one way you can evolve the brand and perception, which is to deliver. You just gotta lay it down. -Roy Price

That American confidence is more alive and well than it should be, to this day. But it's such a problem. There's a blindness to that confidence, a presumption that what's good for me is good for you. No! That's what teenagers think: the world revolves around them. As a nation, we've got to stop thinking that way. We're getting too old for that. -Jennifer Egan

I like to explore different ideas of race, how the concept of race has evolved in the country. It's one thing I enjoy talking about, but I don't feel compelled to talk about it. -Colson Whitehead

I have a two-year-old at home, and my whole life is – besides revolved around keeping this little person alive, just watching them on the stairs and eating food and everything of every minute of every day – you plan what time you're going to bed so that you can be your best self first thing in the morning. -Rosemarie DeWitt

It's a bit disturbing to me that people have to evolve to the idea that people are equal. -Nicholas Gonzalez

I do believe it is important to be future-ready with a portfolio to be able to deal with however the market evolves. This is better than just forecasting accurately but in having the weapons ready to deal with the uncertainties. -Anand Mahindra

Everything evolves, not just music. -Chris Lane

I've tried writing darker, more serious songs, but they don't go anywhere. Everything revolves around the chorus for me. -Shura

Humankind has mainly evolved in Africa, and we only left Africa very, very late in our evolutionary path. This means that there is very little genetic diversity among those who left Africa and very much genetic diversity among those who stayed. -Jens Martin Skibsted

It was really, really heartbreaking to not be named to the team in Sochi, but some things are just not meant to be. That experience changed me as a skater. I took a step back and decided that some things are not worth accepting. I wanted to be on another Olympic team. I took time to evolve myself as a person and as a skater. -Mirai Nagasu

For the American culture to evolve and include Asians is so amazing. -Mirai Nagasu

I lead a very normal life. I'm just so happy being a mother that everything else revolves around that. If a movie falls through or a TV show doesn't get picked up, I'm pretty easygoing about it because I'm just like, 'Yay, I get to be with my kids more!' -Molly Shannon

The word 'midget' is a slur. It evolved from P. T. Barnum's era of circuses and freak shows. Society has evolved. So should our vocabulary. Language is a powerful tool. It does not just name our society. It shapes it. -Sinead Burke

When 'Drag Race' first began, it seemed like a fun window into an underground culture, but over the nine years it has aired, the show has evolved to reflect America's changing relationship to queer rights and acceptance. -Jenna Wortham

Being surrounded by great women and amazing role models and good teammates allowed me to unfold and evolve into the person that I am today. -Hilary Knight

One of the things you hear about when studying the nature of fanaticism is that a lot of the time, people don't start as fanatics. They shift and evolve into that state. That's a process, a systematic process of losing your identity and sense of self. -Karyn Kusama

You always feel pressure to do your best, and when you know that the story revolves around you, it can become very overwhelming. -Lauren Ashley Carter

People always say, 'Oh, I'd love to work with my sibling,' or 'My God, I could never work with my sibling.' It was just a natural process for us. We started collaborating on our first films and it evolved. We have a passion for film that we shared as we were growing up. -Anthony Russo

I think every directing team works differently in the same manner that every director works differently. Everybody has a different personality and a different way of working, and that somehow evolves in the process. -Anthony Russo

I know all my different formulas to get certain sounds. I've been doing this so long that I don't experiment anymore. Or let me rephrase: I've been doing this so long that I don't have to experiment as much. You always want to evolve and change, but if I go in and I know it's a certain type of song, I know exactly where I'm going to place the mics. -Adrian Younge

Because the private sector has evolved processes and metrics for growth over many generations, for-profit models are more likely to efficiently accomplish their goals. -Joe Lonsdale

As we progress as a species, we will unlock new means for enhancing our lives at every turn – and our conceptions of wealth and poverty will evolve in tandem. -Joe Lonsdale

The reality is that Hillary Clinton has been a steadfast supporter of LGBT equality. She has evolved on the issue of LGBT equality, and I think we are a better movement when we give people space to grow and learn. We can't reduce it to a single issue like marriage equality. -Sarah McBride

Anywhere in the world, there is royal food, and there is commoner food. Essentially, eat at the restaurant or eat on the street. But Indian food evolved in three spaces. Home kitchens were a big space for food evolution, and we have never given them enough credit. -Ranveer Brar

Actors actually have a feeling, like a sixth sense. They are like mediums. But it only works – you can only become this medium or this vessel to transport emotions and images and feelings – if you are not too full of yourself. Otherwise, there wouldn't be space for a story to live inside of you or a world to evolve in you and around you. -Vicky Krieps

You can never squash something and assume it's not going to come back in some fashion. It's going to bubble up until it explodes. Society evolves to find a better way. -Barry Levinson

Culture is an output of a bunch of inputs that have to come together the right way. Specifically, it is the collision of people and their context, how they interact with each other in that context, and then how that context evolves based on those interactions as they multiply. -Andy Dunn

I remember starting working on the concept and the script for 'Pacific Rim' with a very, very conscious decision to say, 'I don't want any of these big sequences to take place in America,' because I feel like that's become so regular to the disaster genre, and then it sort of devolves into landmark stomping. -Travis Beacham

I think traditions change and modify with each generation. With new members joining the family, their customs and traditions have to be respected and combined with the exiting traditions. And the children that follow are part of that new evolving tradition and, as they grow, will have input that will, in turn, continue to evolve that tradition. -Lidia Bastianich

As the media landscape continues to evolve, 'Conan' will continue to lead the evolution of what a talk show will be in the digital age. -Kevin Reilly

A lot of the jobs I had revolved around metal fabrication and creating and building and maintaining equipment. -Mike Schultz

I feel like a serious revolution needs to take place in order for human beings to evolve in a way where we can truly exist as a society. -Jaden Smith

The people in Iowa know that Washington isn't working. It's devolved into partisan politics and a lot of gridlock and obstruction. -Patty Judge

It's so important to work with material you can really mold and milk and create and evolve. -Jamie Chung

If we are not given the chance to forget, we are also not given the chance to recover our memories, to alter them with time, perspective, and wisdom. Forgetting, we can be ourselves beyond what the past has told us we are; we can evolve. That is the possibility we want from the future. -Caterina Fake

I think that people should never be ashamed of wanting to move on with their lives and move on from their partners. I have a lot of girlfriends who were married in their early 20s and are now divorced because they basically grew apart – they evolved into another person in their 30s. -Alanna Ubach

Teach your kids emotional intelligence. Help them become more evolved than you are. Explain that, for instance, not everyone will like them. -Pamela Druckerman

Traditional radio is not going to die; it's going to evolve. -Elvis Duran

Whenever you're blessed and given a second season, you can really let the characters evolve. That first season, you're setting everything up. It's background, where they're coming from, what they want to do. And then you get to marinate in it that second season. -Katy Mixon

It's been more than a decade since 'The Real World: Philadelphia' aired. I've grown up. My views have evolved, as has the media landscape. -Karamo Brown

I think that each season we, as an industry, evolve more and more in such a great way, and I'm really excited about it.

I think it's so interesting. -Cynthia Rowley

A lot of queer stories revolve around tragedy. -Camille Perri

I'm a good dad. I'm an evolved dad. You know, you see a lot of guys when they're in training camp, they go off, do their own thing. But I'm in the midst of it. Swim lessons? I'm there. Changing diapers, teething, doctor's appointments, I'm there 24/7. -Demetrious Johnson

Our physiological constitution is obviously a product of Darwinian processes, insofar as you buy the evolutional theory as a generative, as an account of the mechanism that generated us. Our physiology evolved, our behaviors evolved, and our accounts of those behaviors, both successful and unsuccessful, evolved. -Jordan Peterson

A lot of our communication has now become digital, and it does not mimic the natural way we have evolved to communicate with each other, so it's almost like we have this muscle, these social-emotional skills, and they're atrophying, right? -Rana el Kaliouby

There's no doubt that the search for planets is motivated by the search for life. Humans are interested in whether or not life evolves on other planets. We'd especially like to find communicating, technological life, and we look around our own solar system, and we see that of all the planets, there's only one that's inhabited. -Debra Fischer

Because Hubble's been up so many years now, it's actually given us a window to things like… how planets' atmospheres actually change, evolve… over time. -Heidi Hammel

MMA has evolved. When you look at an MMA fighter's skill set, boxing has to be a big piece of it. All of them have a boxing coach now and strive to have a good stand-up game, knowing that to be a complete fighter, you have to tend to your striking skills. -Scott Coker

The Premier League benefits from foreigners, and the game's evolved in a way that's beneficial, but you can't lose the roots of the English game. -Cesar Azpilicueta

Rock evolved out of rebellion, so when you turn on the Billboard Awards or something like the Grammys, and there's no rock on there, that's a good sign – because that means that rock is not welcome inside of a pop format. -Ann Wilson

The questions that our society must ask revolve around whether the time-consuming demands of the deep-reading processes will be lost in a culture whose principal mediums advantage speed, multitasking, and processing the next and the next piece of information. -Maryanne Wolf

As work in neurosciences indicates, the acquisition of literacy necessitated a new circuit in our species' brain more than 6,000 years ago. That circuit evolved from a very simple mechanism for decoding basic information, like the number of goats in one's herd, to the present, highly elaborated reading brain. -Maryanne Wolf

I'm somebody who constantly wants to challenge himself, evolve, and grow. Because if you don't, you fade. You become stagnant. -CM Punk

Aside from birthing me my first grey hairs and keeping me up at night more times than I'd like to count, 'The Subtle Art' taught me a lot about the nature of work. And a lot of that had to do with how my perception of the work itself evolved over the course of writing the book. -Mark Manson

I think critics tend to think that comedy is freakin' math. Like, this is the Pythagorean Theorem. They're not sophisticated enough to know that comedy is fluid, that it evolves, and these organic evolutions are what you have to embrace. -Ken Jeong

As you grow and get older, you evolve. -Gza

I stopped with the red meat, let go of turkey and chicken, and then I held onto fish. When we finished 'Wu-Tang Forever,' I felt like I evolved and completely dived into veganism. -Rza

As you evolve, you learn that wrestling is not necessarily about stunts or spots. You need to go out and show the audience that they can love you for the persona you are – not because of the risk you're willing to take or the jeopardy you're willing to put your body in. -Matt Hardy

We shift in our everyday life; we evolve, depending on the circumstances. -Percelle Ascott

Languages evolve; ideas blend together. In computer technology, we all stand on others' shoulders. -Paul Allen

You can't manufacture the feeling of being in a small crowd and connecting on every single level to the very last person in the very last row in the back. I think when you evolve into a headlining act and things get bigger, the intimacy and some of that energy gets lost a little bit. -Jay DeMarcus

I think competition is the best thing for everyone. Competition is what makes us evolve, from when we were itty bitty little tadpoles in prehistoric times to what we've turned into now. Competition makes us evolve and makes us push ourselves better. -Big Show
