If, however, you have richer pursuits in mind and know that no woman should be judged by how she looks – that everything she brings to the party is more important than the size of her arse – then refuse to be sucked into the never ending whirligig of self-doubting, self-hating madness that is stop-start dieting and crazy new exercise regimes. -Arabella Weir

I've always loved sports and hockey is a sport I play as much as I can. I love it. In a weird way it's like church and therapy and exercise all rolled up into one. I mean when I play hockey I don't think about anything. -Michael Vartan

I never, ever, ever had deltoids! Oh my God, when I'm doing exercises and I see them pop out, I'm like, Yes! -Valerie Bertinelli

It's easy to fall into a funk and not want to exercise, or to really want that second piece of chocolate cake. I have to say, I fight against those feelings all year. But I try not to let myself sit in a rut like that. -JoJo

These days I travel so much it's hard to get into a routine. When I'm on the road, I tend to use hotel gyms. When I'm home in L.A., I like to hike and hit the surf. All in all, I try to keep a balanced diet and exercise routine, which has stood me in good stead to date. -Curtis Stone

Something like Deckard Cain is great; it doesn't ruin your voice. But games that involve violence or battle or mutating and stuff like that really does take a toll on your voice.

I know what I have to do if I want to lose weight and stay healthy: eat a proper diet and exercise. All I've got to do is apply it. -John Candy

I exercise everyday. I swim, I bike, I run and I go to the gym. -Lance Armstrong

I never lifted a weight in my life. Why am I going to do steroids? That's not going to do me any good. We didn't have any weights in our clubhouse. We had one exercise bike and that was for the guy who tweaked his hamstring. And that thing didn't even work half the time. -George Brett

Great research universities must insist on independence from government and on the exercise of academic freedom. -Alan Dershowitz

I exercise most days. -Chris Hughes

I don't exercise. -Lou Holtz

To look and feel my best, I watch my calories and exercise. -Kim Kardashian

It was very clear to me in 1965, in Mississippi, that, as a lawyer, I could get people into schools, desegregate the schools, but if they were kicked off the plantations – and if they didn't have food, didn't have jobs, didn't have health care, didn't have the means to exercise those civil rights, we were not going to have success. -Marian Wright Edelman

Every time you get on a stage or in front of a camera, the whole exercise is about imagination. You're constantly depicting something that doesn't exist, and trying to find the reality of it. Once you settle on that premise, everything else is a matter of degrees. -Ron Perlman

A man writing a letter is a man in the act of thinking, and it was an exercise Reagan obviously enjoyed. After his first meeting with Gorbachev, for example, he sent a 'Dear Murph' letter about it to his old friend George Murphy, a former senator and actor who had once played Reagan's father in a film. -Russell Baker

I exercise every morning. I do light weights – 5lb and 10lb arm exercises – and then lie and lift my arms and legs. It's all about keeping core strength. I do a lot of stretching too. -Larry Hagman

I don't exercise. I'm skinny-fat. I worry about being too skinny. -Kristen Stewart

As a teacher at Princeton, I'm surrounded by people who work hard so I just make good use of my time. And I don't really think of it as work – writing a novel, in one sense, is a problem-solving exercise. -Joyce Carol Oates

So maybe there are three parts in my life – earlier background living in exile in Xinjiang in a very political circumstance, then later the United States from 24 to 36 years old. I was quite equipped with liberal thinking. Then the Internet. If there is no Internet, of course, I cannot really exercise my opinion or my ideas. -Ai Weiwei

People tend to judge presidents on how the economy performs, and yet we don't expect them to have the power to do much about it. Or we don't want them to exercise that power, if they were to have it. -Barbara Ehrenreich

The only exercise I take is walking behind the coffins of friends who took exercise. -Peter O'Toole

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

Prayer's important, not just as some kind of a metaphysical exercise, but I think it's a way to refresh one's own mind and motive. If you're praying, you're really looking beyond your own personal thoughts and the pressures that are around you. -Mike Huckabee

Whether you've seen angels floating around your bedroom or just found a ray of hope at a lonely moment, choosing to believe that something unseen is caring for you can be a life-shifting exercise. -Martha Beck

For me, one of the important things about keeping vocally healthy is warming up and making sure I'm aware where my voice is at, drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep, and just taking care of myself with exercise and eating healthy. -Adam Lambert

Weight-bearing exercise builds bone density, builds your muscular strength so that you can hold your body up where those bones have a tendency to get weak. -Ann Richards

Every day I try to do breathing exercises, meditation, and yoga. These things sound awfully cliche, but they help me slow down and try to point to a truth. -David Duchovny

The best way to prepare for a night out with a Shakespearean tragedy is to do a bit of reading up in the afternoon, eat a light supper – perhaps Welsh rarebit – and then arrive early to do some stretching exercises in the foyer before curtain-up. -Arthur Smith

When it comes to exercise, I don't like anything that's too serious. -Lindsay Ellingson

My workouts include aerobic exercise for a healthy cardiovascular system; strength training to maintain muscle tone and bone density; core strength exercise for a stable mid-section; and stretching to maintain mobility. -Samantha Stosur

Core strength and stability is very important to me. Tennis is all about rotation of the body and my ability to create power. I incorporate a lot of abdominal, back and glute exercises into my gym sessions. -Samantha Stosur

When I did 'Dancing with the Stars' I did lose an awful lot of weight and I think at the time everybody was sort of alarmed by it. You can eat anything and it is still dropping off you when you are doing that amount of exercise. -Katherine Jenkins

I'm not naturally a person that wants to exercise, but I find running is something I can do wherever I am in the world. -Katherine Jenkins

Now before I work out, I think, 'I love exercise,' and it works. -Ashley Tisdale

I realized just how much exercise and eating right make a difference in how you feel now and when you get older. -Ashley Tisdale

I look back on my liberal political beliefs with a sort of wonder – as another exercise in self-involvement – rewarding myself for some superiority I could not logically describe. -David Mamet

As a player, I was fortunate to work with coaching and medical staffs that underscored the importance of utilizing injury prevention exercises, which contributed to my healthy and long playing career. -Cobi Jones

Lots of people there seemed to be in denial, in absolute denial, of death – everybody's pretending that death doesn't happen in L.A.; if you do enough exercise and take enough wheatgrass and have your pill every day, you might not die. -Emily Mortimer

I don't exercise – that's something I struggle with. -Debra Messing

I'll exercise in spurts, usually inspired by a dress that I have to fit into. But once that gown is squeezed into, if I continue to exercise, I get sick or I pull my back. For some reason my body literally rejects exercise. -Debra Messing

Health has always been an important thing to me. I exercise and try to take care of myself, and drink a lot of water! And I push that to my kids so that they can carry on that same energy. -Doug E. Fresh

Everything is a process… some of our eating habits consist of things we can't change, but if we modify it a little and put some exercise in there, we can really make a difference. -Doug E. Fresh

For exercise, I tend to like the outdoors. In Paris, I rent a bike in the street and cycle around, and in L.A. I live up in the hills so I go hiking a lot. I like to stay fit by being generally active. -Diane Kruger

I exercise three to four times a week, doing the Tracy Anderson Method, which involves toning and strengthening our small muscle groups. -Natalie Imbruglia

I eat well, and I exercise. -Seth Rogen

I like sports, and swimming is my favorite. Doing physical exercises keeps one fit and healthy and helps one work more efficiently. I think we all need to strike a balance between work and relaxation. This can keep us energetic and help us do our job better. -Xi Jinping

There's no quick or magical way to lose weight. You just have to do it the natural way – diet and exercise and stick to it – and be able to do it at your own pace. -Jordin Sparks

Aside from performing in 'Peepshow,' I do yoga once a week and I like Pilates. I'm more into toning exercises over aerobics. I like working with a trainer at a private gym, but I also like going with friends because you don't get bored or distracted. -Holly Madison

I have a two-story house and a bad memory, so I'm up and down those stairs all the time. That's my exercise. -Betty White

I am interested in a lot of things – not just show business and my passion for animals. I try to keep current in what's going on in the world. I do mental exercises. I don't have any trouble memorizing lines because of the crossword puzzles I do every day to keep my mind a little limber. I don't sit and vegetate. -Betty White

I was a vegan for two years, and I really enjoyed it. Then, I got to a point in my life at which I wanted to do something else, so now I'm a vegetarian. You should make your diet one that best fits you and how you feel. Listen to your body. The most important thing is to exercise, drink lots of water, and take really good care of yourself. -Lea Michele

I like being able to marry the actor and the technician inside of me. It's really fulfilling. It exercises all of my creative muscles. -Carrie Preston

I'm glad that our music motivates people to exercise. If I had to pick just one song to run to, it would be 'Violet' by Hole. It makes me want to run. -Fergie

I went to Julliard where they use a lot of voice and speech exercises. -Lynn Collins

My inventing time is all done under the influence of aerobic exercise. Basically, I do all my thinking while I run. -Justin Cronin

I'd love to open up sessions at a Boys and Girls Club or something where kids can learn nutrition and how to exercise in a fun way. Especially for young guys. I'd love to be an inspiration. -James Maslow

Because I travel so much, I bring my workout clothes and shoes wherever I go. That way I can always do some exercise. -Gail Simmons

I sit at this really weird crossroads. My job requires me to take in calories. I take care of myself. I eat healthy. I exercise a lot. But then I have to go to events in cocktail dresses and look fancy, and people want to interview me about what I'm wearing, and then I'm compared to people who are wearing size 2 all the time. -Gail Simmons

I don't exercise. -Jackee Harry

People who care about animals tend to care about people. They don't care about animals to the exclusion of people. Caring is not a finite resource and, even more than that, it's like a muscle: the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. -Jonathan Safran Foer

I like running and swimming, and exercise four or five times a week, but not for long – about 30 minutes. I just exercise by myself and find that as I get older it becomes easier. In school I remember not enjoying running at all. -Arizona Muse

Humans should always exercise and watch what they eat. So with your pet, make sure they get enough exercise, make sure they're getting fed at the same time every day and getting the nutrition they need. And make sure they get a lot of love and attention you both need. That's why you have them! -Alison Sweeney

Spinning has been such an amazing part of my exercise. I love the music, the energy, and the sweat. It's a tough class, which makes me feel like I've really accomplished something. It's a great way to burn fat and lean out the body. An all-around win! -Alison Sweeney

Sometimes acting is really cool because it forces you to exercise certain muscles in your personality that you wouldn't normally be called upon in life. -Jenna Fischer

I love to exercise outside in the fresh air and sun: hiking, swimming, stand-up paddleboarding, and jogging. -Colbie Caillat

I'm kind of a manic exerciser. I'll like exercise for a week and be crazy, and then I won't do it for six months. -Jane Lynch

When I stopped doing ballet, I started training in the pool. I would do my barre exercises in the water, because that prevents injuries. -Summer Glau

To me, the question of inspiration is an exercise in hindsight. The truth is, inspiration is mysterious at the time. I don't think it's ever a rational process. -Julia Leigh

With the counseling of my family doctor, my mother ended up turning to Weight Watchers and their children's program. I went to weekly meetings, got counseling and would exercise with my peers who were my size. It was the first time I saw a proper children's portion size, and it wasn't two burgers, it was one. -Ginnifer Goodwin

You hang around actors, or dancers, the minute you sneeze, everybody has a remedy, and we're all on a million different kinds of diets, and different kinds of things that we do for exercise. -Anna Deavere Smith

I'd like to get into some sort of workout regimen so I can properly be healthy and exercise like a normal human being. I seem to not do that… ever. -Dylan O'Brien

You know, when I am working, I take really, really good care of myself. I eat really well, and I exercise, and again, I have this team of people pulling me together every day. -Michelle Pfeiffer

I was never particularly wild, just very busy and often didn't think about what I was putting into my body. Today things are very different. I stopped smoking in my late 30s; I avoid wheat and gluten as this makes me feel bloated and sluggish; exercise regularly and bounce out of bed. -Britt Ekland

Children have to be motivated to want to learn to read. Reading must not be taught simply as a school exercise. -Michael Morpurgo

A good movie is made by an initial burst of energy, the way that, when you are in school, your class exercises are always better than your final projects. -Abbas Kiarostami

I like to exercise. I always walk an hour a day, I swim 250 days a year and I do balancing exercises which take me an hour. -Julio Iglesias

Your body begins to change when it burns and shakes… so when an exercise is challenging, I always think 'feel your body changing.' -Stacy Keibler

I pride myself in taking care of my mind, body and soul, and not just through exercise. -Stacy Keibler

I am a type-2 diabetic, and they took me off medication simply because I ate right and exercised. Diabetes is not like a cancer, where you go in for chemo and radiation. You can change a lot through a basic changing of habits. -Sherri Shepherd

If you have a therapist who agrees with your every word, then your brain isn't getting proper exercise. -Beth Ditto

We've forgotten how to remember, and just as importantly, we've forgotten how to pay attention. So, instead of using your smartphone to jot down crucial notes, or Googling an elusive fact, use every opportunity to practice your memory skills. Memory is a muscle, to be exercised and improved. -Joshua Foer

Monotony collapses time; novelty unfolds it. You can exercise daily and eat healthily and live a long life, while experiencing a short one. If you spend your life sitting in a cubicle and passing papers, one day is bound to blend unmemorably into the next – and disappear. -Joshua Foer

So when you tell a joke, you want to make someone laugh, or if you tell a story about someone who had a heart attack, it may be because you want the listener to exercise. Stories are tools to create social cohesion and to get humans to strategize together. -Peter Guber

If you go into a bank or a shop and you want them to believe that you're going to shoot them, that's an acting exercise. If you want to turn to someone else who's as tooled up as you are and persuade them to put their knife down because you'll use your knife, that's an acting exercise. Nine out of 10 delinquents are frustrated actors. -Peter Mullan

To me, it's not necessarily about whom you vote for, it's more about the fact that you go out and exercise that right. There's a lot of people who fight for our right to vote and people in other countries fighting for other peoples' right to vote and I think everyone should exercise that vote. -Robert Griffin III

I grew up in the military. I've lived that life. I know that our soldiers are out there fighting for our right to vote, and they're out there fighting for other countries' rights to vote… Guys have been dying for it, and we have to go out and exercise it. -Robert Griffin III

I think by planning an exercise regime, your diet follows to some extent. -Dolph Lundgren

Interviews, when they are just simply an exercise in hearing what you want to hear, are of no interest. -Errol Morris

I exercise hard and the reason I do is so that I can earn the things I like to consume. -Ben Elton

I feel better if I exercise and eat healthily. -Linda Gray

I eat right. I exercise. I run 5 miles a day on the treadmill. -Wolf Blitzer

In the military I could exercise the power of being automatically respected because of the medals on my chest, not because I had done anything right at the moment to earn that respect. This is pretty nice. It's also a psychological trap that can stop one's growth and allow one to get away with just plain bad behavior. -Karl Marlantes

In artillery exercises, women always win because they're more accurate. -Michelle Bachelet

I took a gamble to exercise leadership without losing my feminine nature. -Michelle Bachelet

I will exercise patience and will provide all facts to the general public. -Yingluck Shinawatra

By learning about my body and making small, subtle changes, I find out what I enjoy and what is effective. I'm always finessing: adjusting my diet and my workouts. You have to figure out which exercises are fun and interesting and stimulate your brain – or else you'll never keep at them. -Lisa Edelstein

If I could give one tip for people – it's not an exercise or nutrition regimen. It's to walk your talk and believe in yourself, because at the end of the day, the dumbbell and diet don't get you in shape. It's your accountability to your word. -Brett Hoebel

If you think of exercise as a 60-minute commitment 3 times a week at the gym, you're missing the point completely. If you think that going on a diet has something to do with nutrition, you don't see the forest through the trees. It is a lifestyle. I know it sounds cliche, but you have to find things you love to do. -Brett Hoebel

Grooming oneself with all the crazed compulsion of an under-exercised lab rat in order to hook a rich man and obtain a lush lifestyle makes a certain (albeit seedy) sense. -Julie Burchill

Writing for adults and writing for young people is really not that different. As a reporter, I have always tried to write as clearly and simply as possible. I like clean, unadorned writing. So writing for a younger audience was largely an exercise in making my prose even more clear and direct, and in avoiding complicated digressions. -Serge Schmemann

You want to free the world, free humanity, from oppression? Look inside, look sideways, look at the hidden violence of language. Never forget that language is where the other, parallel violence, the cruelty exercised on the body, originates. -Ariel Dorfman

I'm quite curvy and I just try and exercise whenever I can. I don't do anything hardcore as I'm just not that dedicated. -Leona Lewis

I believe that a healthy body breeds a healthy mind. I am 74 years old now and my wife, Niso, is 38 years younger than me. She absolutely insists that I take regular exercise with her. -Wilbur Smith

Being in New York City is the best because I'm always walking, taking the subway and walking up and down the stairs – whether you like it or not, you're going to get exercise. -Ana Ortiz

I need to eat before a workout. If I exercise in the morning, I'll have a little oatmeal, cereal, or a hard-boiled egg with toast. If I go in the afternoon, I'll eat a turkey sandwich with cheese for lunch. -Ana Ortiz

I've never really focused on if I had good habits when I sang or if I had bad habits, or if I was breathing correctly. So, I started doing vocal exercises and would stretch out before I sang, stuff to help my breathing. It's funny, you breathe your whole life then you find out you're not doing it correctly. -Rodney Atkins

Nothing is harmful to literature except censorship, and that almost never stops literature going where it wants to go either, because literature has a way of surpassing everything that blocks it and growing stronger for the exercise. -Ali Smith

I know exercise is important, but I hate it! -Gayle King

I spend a lot of time on the 'Glee' set. A lot of time. Luckily we have to dance and rehearse, so we're always moving, but having such a tight schedule can make it hard to find the time to exercise. It's definitely a struggle! -Jenna Ushkowitz

Everyone knows that exercise can improve your health. Exercise is a key part of managing your weight and maintaining healthy hearts, lungs, and other bodily systems. But did you know that exercise can make you more productive? The latest research shows that a regular exercise routine can make you happier, smarter, and more energetic. -Robert Pozen

I exercise about 40 minutes a day, and I'll run one day and do circuit training the next day. I live in an area where there are brilliant hills and mountains, so I get a good hill run with my dog. At home, I'll do the circuit training with old weights, along with pull-ups in the trees and that sort of stuff. -Bear Grylls

One killer exercise that's really great is pull-ups with your legs out level. That's my favourite. It's such functional core strength, and that's why I can climb up trees and down vines. -Bear Grylls

Exercise helps my back. If I don't exercise, that's when it starts to hurt. The pain is a good motivator to run and exercise. -Bear Grylls

I always have to pay attention to exercise and nutrition. -Cintia Dicker

I really believe that beauty comes from health – sensible eating and exercise. -Dita Von Teese

I prefer the competitive atmosphere of a classroom setting, like yoga or Pilates. That keeps me going. Although performing on stage is great exercise! -Dita Von Teese

For many in the modern world, carving out time for both traditional seated meditation and exercise has become close to impossible. -Andrew Weil

Even low-calorie diets and vigorous exercise fail to work in the long term for at least some people. -Andrew Weil

Excess exercise tends to be counterbalanced by excess hunger, exemplified by the phrase 'working up an appetite.' A few people with extraordinary willpower can resist such hunger day after day, but for the vast majority, weight loss through exercise is a flawed option. -Andrew Weil

Human bodies are designed for regular physical activity. The sedentary nature of much of modern life probably plays a significant role in the epidemic incidence of depression today. Many studies show that depressed patients who stick to a regimen of aerobic exercise improve as much as those treated with medication. -Andrew Weil

Many exercise forms – aerobic, yoga, weights, walking and more – have been shown to benefit mood. -Andrew Weil

I am a particular fan of integrative exercise – that is, exercise that occurs in the course of doing some productive activity such as gardening, bicycling to work, doing home improvement projects and so on. -Andrew Weil

The most common objection that I hear to walking as exercise is that it's too easy, that only sweaty, strenuous activity offers real benefits. But there is abundant evidence that regular, brisk walking is associated with better health, including lower blood pressure, better moods and improved cholesterol ratios. -Andrew Weil

Routines may include taking a warm bath or a relaxing walk in the evening, or practicing meditation/relaxation exercises. Psychologically, the completion of such a practice tells your mind and body that the day's work is over and you are free to relax and sleep. -Andrew Weil

It is really important that we promote competitive support in schools. It is very important that we recognise that has to be underpinned by good quality physical education and by getting people into patterns of exercise. -Sebastian Coe

On the one hand I follow a vocation because I have an ability that I should exercise, but I want to use it for a reason, because I don't see that the freedoms that I enjoy are God-given realities. So I have a very healthy, activist general tension in me which feels that no, this is not gratuitous, it is important to keep this in focus. -Wolfgang Tillmans

Just as physical exercise is a well-known and well-accepted means to improve health for anyone, regardless of age or background, so can the brain be put 'into shape' for optimal learning. -Naveen Jain

Acting is a bit of a heart and soul exercise with me. It's kind of all I've got. -Ben Mendelsohn

I like to run on the beach. It's a different exercise as well when you're in sand, a different kind of training. -Charlie Bewley

With all the lines I have to learn for TV scripts, I don't think I have any problems with forgetfulness – that's brain exercise enough for me. -Kevin Whately

Yes, I'm obsessed with health, which has been an interesting journey. I went down the raw-food diet route, but got ill. It was really hard, especially in Britain in winter, trying to survive on raw carrots. I became so ill and anemic, so I stopped that and became a vitamin junkie. I just ate lots of vegetables, exercised and breathed. -Naomie Harris

Two successive commissioners in London police were fired by the mayor that came into office. That doesn't mean the police in London is not independent and does not exercise powers. Ultimately it is the political executive that has to answer. -P. Chidambaram

I do enjoy exercise, not because I am an exercise junkie but because it's terrific stress release. -Tony Abbott

I have exercise-induced asthma. -Chyler Leigh

If you get stuck, get away from your desk. Take a walk, take a bath, go to sleep, make a pie, draw, listen to music, meditate, exercise; whatever you do, don't just stick there scowling at the problem. But don't make telephone calls or go to a party; if you do, other people's words will pour in where your lost words should be. -Hilary Mantel

Generally, it's a great exercise to not get stuck in one medium too long because you begin to lose perspective on the peculiar drawbacks and strengths of the medium. For example, if I'm in the back of the stage and I want you to see my emotional change by a flicker of my eyelid, we're all going to be in for a long boring evening. -Denis O'Hare

To me, writing is much freer than dancing. With writing, you could do it whenever you wanted. You didn't have to do little exercises and stay in shape. You could have great moments of inspiration that advanced the story. In dance, unless you're going to choreograph things yourself, you're at the service of someone else. -Lorrie Moore

It's taken a while, but I've finally grown up and got my head around the fact that the healthier the food you eat is and the more exercise you do, the lighter you'll be. It really is that simple. -Martine McCutcheon

No matter what your political persuasion, you can find a guide that makes it quick, easy and painless to exercise your right to vote. Wanna know what a certain proposition put forth by a cadre of undisclosed billionaires which cuts funding for public education, arts and infrastructure means? Use the voting guide! -Steven Weber

When I was young, my mom realized I could dance and hold a beat, and I really danced just for fun. It was good exercise. -Tom Holland

Many dogs grow up without rules or boundaries. They need exercise, discipline and affection in that order. -Cesar Millan

Dog parks can be a fantastic way to socialize your dog, but it's important for owners to understand that a dog park isn't exercise and isn't a substitute for walk. A visit to the dog park is fun – play time. -Cesar Millan

I was blessed to grow up on a farm, and when you're a farm boy, exercise is part of your lifestyle. Like it or not, that environment makes you work out. On the farm, nature is your gym. You walk and run and swim and have to do a lot of work with animals too. -Cesar Millan

We moved to the city when I was 7, and the lack of exercise made me frustrated. I started fighting with my sisters, and my parents put me in judo as an outlet. I became very competitive and won a lot of medals. -Cesar Millan

My business life takes a big chunk of time, but I still put exercise in my schedule. I'm up at 5 A.M. and get up and stretch and go for a run in Runyon Canyon with all five of my dogs. -Cesar Millan

Few men in their 70s looked as good as my father did. What was his secret? Genes, maybe, since he didn't exercise or diet, and he kept a candy drawer, drank a pot of black coffee every day, and read in the middle of the night. Still, he took such joy in being a dad – and in life in general – and his happiness showed. -Jennifer Grant

A cultural shift is needed to incorporate exercise into our children's daily lives. -Darell Hammond

Play exercises both your physical and creative muscles. It helps you move around, solve problems, challenge yourself, and think in new ways. Not to mention that it's just plain fun. -Darell Hammond

I have always believed that the material world is governed by nonmaterial sources, so that in that sense 'English Music' is an exercise in the spiritual as well as the material. I have always been attracted to the Gothic and spiritual imagination, and I've always been interested in visionaries. -Peter Ackroyd

I am, in fact, a medical doctor; I am a world expert in mechanical heart technology; and I am an athletically fit man who takes care of his own health through diet and exercise, including frequent five mile runs. -Robert Jarvik

The thing we don't want to do is overstate the benefits, but there is all kinds of proof that exercise, both physical and mental, increases brain activity. -Nolan Bushnell

My mother used to say, 'You gotta exercise.' She would really pound on me to exercise every day. She was very physically fit; she was on the basketball team in high school in St. Louis in the 1920s, when women didn't do that. And she taught me to play tennis, taught me to walk and run, and I ran for 30 years pretty religiously. -Dick Gephardt

The task of the media in a democracy is not to ease the path of those who govern, but to make life difficult for them by constant vigilance as to how they exercise the power they only hold in trust from the people. -Jimmy Reid

Tackling the environment should not be a licence to lecture people, because they have no excuse not to exercise, or eat their fruit and vegetables. Nannying – at least among adults – is likely to be counterproductive. Providing information is empowering; lecturing people is not. So, no excuses, no nannying. -Andrew Lansley

Writing is a muscle that needs to be exercised every day: The more you write, the easier it becomes. -Jane Green

It's too bad prayer comes bundled in a package of 'spiritual disciplines.' Really, we should see prayer as a spiritual privilege. We don't do it as a callisthenic exercise to gain points with God; we do it, because it is good for us in every way. -Philip Yancey

When 'happiness' eludes us – as, eventually, it always will – we have the invitation to examine our programmed responses and to exercise our power to choose again. -Richard Rohr

For me, writing is an experience. It's an exercise in which I want to discover myself by taking my characters to the edges of human experience, to the edges of themselves and then, asking certain questions – about love, what does it mean to love? What's beauty? What is true beauty? -Ted Dekker

For me, writing is an experience. It's an exercise in which I want to discover myself by taking my characters to the edges of human experience, to the edges of themselves and then, asking certain questions – about love, what does it mean to love? What's beauty? What is true beauty? What does it mean to be insane – crazy? -Ted Dekker

The exercise of democracy begins as exercise, as walking around, becoming familiar with the streets, comfortable with strangers, able to imagine your own body as powerful and expressive rather than a pawn. -Rebecca Solnit

Green exercise improves psychological health. -Richard Louv

Science fiction isn't just thinking about the world out there. It's also thinking about how that world might be – a particularly important exercise for those who are oppressed, because if they're going to change the world we live in, they – and all of us – have to be able to think about a world that works differently. -Samuel R. Delany

Of course, women have long exercised influence behind the scenes. A few thousand years ago this drove Aristotle to distraction: 'What difference does it make whether women rule or the rulers are ruled by women? The result is the same.' -Stacy Schiff

Almost everyone who reaches a plateau where he or she is happy and comfortable says it's because of finding balance between work, relaxation, exercise, socialising and family – plus some alone time to do something contemplative, creative, or educational. -Neil Strauss

Fasting is, first and foremost, an exercise for identifying and managing adversity in all its forms. With faith, in full conscience, fasting calls women and men to an extra degree of self-awareness. -Tariq Ramadan

The CD is now the wax album and so it is a collector's item for people who collect music and love to look at the liner notes and feel paper. I don't know what would turn them on about having to go through that terrible exercise of trying to open the packaging – it's unbelievable when you're trying to open a CD, right? You need a box cutter . -MC Hammer

Of capital importance is to have a good diet and exercise a lot. -Evelyn Lauder

I'm innately conservative, and painting is an ideal place to exercise a progressive conservatism. I operate well within limits. -Laurie Simmons

IBM isn't investing billions of dollars every year into research and development – and winning more patents than our top 10 competitors combined for more than a decade – as an academic exercise. But research is now being driven much more by what people need rather than just by what is possible. -Samuel J. Palmisano

We all know we should eat right and we should exercise, but reading is treated as if it's this wonderful adjunct. -Walter Dean Myers

I keep threatening to keep a formal journal, but whenever I start one it instantly becomes an exercise in self-consciousness. Instead of a journal I manage to have dozens of notebooks with bits and pieces of stories, poems, and notes. Almost every thing I do has its beginning in a notebook of some sort, usually written on a bus or train. -Walter Dean Myers

Isn't that the great thing about Christmas? You get a lot of respite, time to recharge your batteries, time with family without too much else happening anywhere else in the world, time to focus on the people you love and the activities that you enjoy, time to exercise, to read. -Wayne Swan

Those who are devoted to amusements; who love the society of those who love pleasure, have an aversion to religious exercises. -Ellen G. White

Study and work and work and study will keep in active exercise both the physical and mental. These two, rightly conducted, will not war against each other. -Ellen G. White

Love exercised while duty is neglected will make children headstrong, willful, perverse, selfish, and disobedient. If stern duty is left to stand alone without love to soften and win, it will have a similar result. Duty and love must be blended in order that children may be properly disciplined. -Ellen G. White

Confound not faith and feeling together. They are distinct. Faith is ours to exercise. Believe, believe. Let your faith take hold of the blessing, and it is yours by faith. Your feelings have nothing to do with this faith. -Ellen G. White

I've run my whole life – for more than exercise, for mental health. -Wendelin Van Draanen

I look at my paintings for a very long time before letting them out of my studio. I like to get on the treadmill and look around at all of my paintings while I exercise. I try to stare them down to make them reveal their weaknesses. If they reveal weaknesses, they get repainted. -Sean Scully

I don't actually do any exercise, which is really bad. But I wear heels a lot. My theory is that it's painful, so it's gotta do something. -Karen Gillan

I'm not someone who has a lengthy attention span, and that applies to my exercise routine as well. -Jai Courtney

I stayed really physical during my pregnancy. I stuck to my normal pre-pregnancy workout, minus the stomach exercises and twisting. I really felt it helped my whole well-being. -Keri Russell

Without exercise, I don't feel like my head works right. -Matthew McConaughey

If we were meant to read for enjoyment, would God have created television? Read as it was intended – for exercise. The more you read, the more you expand your – what's the word I'm looking for? – your stockpile of words. You must have a stockpile of words that you can pass along to your children for their stockpile. -Steve Carell

I was never a class clown or anything like that, but I do remember being in the first grade and my teacher, Mr. Chad, told the class one day that we were going to do some exercises. He meant math exercises, but I stood up and started doing jumping jacks. To this day, I don't know what possessed me to do that, but all my friends cracked up. -Will Ferrell

The true exercise of freedom is – cannily and wisely and with grace – to move inside what space confines – and not seek to know what lies beyond and cannot be touched or tasted. -A. S. Byatt

Maybe it's every kid's dream to go into a pod and come out looking like Captain America. And you don't even have to exercise or lift weights! It's great! -Joe Johnston

Any government, that is its own judge of, and determines authoritatively for the people, what are its own powers over the people, is an absolute government of course. It has all the powers that it chooses to exercise. There is no other or at least no more accurate definition of a despotism than this. -Lysander Spooner

The trial by jury might safely be introduced into a despotic government, if the jury were to exercise no right of judging of the law, or the justice of the law. -Lysander Spooner

I majored in industrial design/painting, but haven't had time to exercise that creativity. -Elisabeth Hasselbeck

I don't like being away from theater that long. The muscles get atrophied if you don't exercise them. -Clarke Peters

When I exercise, I like to take lots of different classes because I want to really apply myself and feel like I'm learning a new skill. Not that I ever want to have to demonstrate any of those skills! -Zooey Deschanel

I'm quite compulsive about exercise. For two months, I'll exercise every day, then for three months I'll do nothing. I love food, so exercise is important for me. -Josephine de La Baume

I have an amazing metabolism. I'm sure that'll be gone one day. But I like to exercise, too, so I don't think I'll ever get really fat. -Aziz Ansari

The bad things about theatre get balanced by the good things in film and vice versa. So to tell you the truth, I love it when I can go back and forth – it feeds different parts of you and exercises different muscles. -Willem Dafoe

The best and the worst thing about fashion is that anyone can do it. But because fashion can be the most unintellectual thing, you have to turn it into an intellectual exercise just for your own sanity. You have to start with a conceit. -Joseph Altuzarra

It starts with your diet and then to your exercise… you have to make the right decisions as a consumer and learn about carbs and proteins as well as watching your portion control, and from there you have to stay active as much as possible. -Apolo Ohno

You want to know my real pleasure? Food. I love chocolate. I can't get enough chocolate. I can't help it. But my biggest pleasure of all is exercise. I really get off on exercise. -Brian Wilson

It gets harder every day to get out of bed. I don't feel like it loads of the time. It is only my exercise routine which wakes me up. -Bruce Forsyth

I love that there are beaches you can walk your dog on in San Francisco. Fort Funston is big and always packed with hundreds of dogs and their people. A great place to hike and get some exercise and fresh air with your well-mannered pup. Not recommended for antisocial dogs; there's just too much commotion there. -Jane Wiedlin

I use a lot of balance training and functional training. Basically it's where you add an element of instability to a regular exercise. So whether it's on the physioball or the Bosu ball or just balancing on one leg, I try to incorporate an instable plane and/or movement to the exercise, so the body's doing two or more movements. -Steve Nash

It's tough. It's very tricky to throw a morally flexible character onto the screen and have an audience empathize. It's always an exercise in restraint. -Ryan Reynolds

Good doctors exercise judgment. They make the call and – right or wrong – live with the consequences and learn from them. The redefined M.D. is flawed, but comfortable inside their own skin. -Brian Goldman

When I'm working, I always make time to get exercise into my schedule. -Daria Werbowy

Donors, like voters, increasingly expect candidates to exercise fiscal discipline. -Mark McKinnon

As every student in Philosophy 101 learns, nothing can force me to believe that anyone except me is conscious. This power to deny that other people have feelings is not just an academic exercise but an all-too-common vice, as we see in the long history of human cruelty. -Steven Pinker

I'm such a fanatic about exercise that I opened my own gym, 3Sixty Cycling Studio, and I exercise almost every single day. -Bobbi Brown

You have to build your credentials as a candidate, not just as a woman. You also have to be willing to exercise power. We've been educated to be mothers, peacemakers, but we must learn that we can't please everybody. -Madeleine M. Kunin

I think some authors suffer from a need to try to prove that they're clever and educated. I try not to suffer from that. I would rather sacrifice my own narrative in the exercise of writing a biography. So I'm not worried about whether I'm clever. -Amity Shlaes

Politicians generally act as if there is no cost to reconnecting with voters by building new New Deals. But the whole exercise of writing law out of New Deal nostalgia is a form of national narcissism. Call it New Deal narcissism. -Amity Shlaes

I don't force myself to exercise; I find going to gyms really boring. I find it easier to go for a fast walk or a jog in Central Park. I wear sensible shoes because my ballet dancing left me with a bunion on one foot after all the pointe exercises. -Sarah Brightman

I believe that art has been a vehicle for me that's been about enlightenment and expanding my own parameters, to give me courage to exercise the freedom that I have in life. -Jeff Koons

Variety is what I would recommend: As variety is the spice of life in food, so it is in exercise. Change it up. But most of all, don't overdo it. -Martina Navratilova

The secret to longevity, as I see it, has less to do with diet, or even exercise, and more to do with the environment in which a person lives: social and physical. What do I mean by this? They live rewardingly inconvenient lives. -Dan Buettner

Diet and supplements and exercise programs aren't what is achieving longevity. Having a faith-based community can add four to 14 years. -Dan Buettner

Psychology and acting are very closely linked. It's just about studying people and how they work. It can be an incredible discipline and exercise. -Claire Danes

It's important for moms to have alone time. However, that's the first thing that goes on a busy day. Fortunately for me, because of my job, I have to find the time to do it. At least that's the way my mind sees it. I have to exercise to be able to fit the clothes and book the jobs. -Cindy Crawford

All our talents increase in the using, and every faculty, both good and bad, strengthens by exercise: therefore, if you choose to use the bad, or those which tend to evil till they become your masters, and neglect the good till they dwindle away, you have only yourself to blame. -Anne Bronte

Sleephackers go to bed with sensors on their wrists and foreheads and maintain detailed electronic sleep diaries, which they often share online. To shift between sleep phases, sleephackers experiment with various diets, room and body temperatures, and kinds of pre-sleep physical exercise. -Evgeny Morozov

God gave us free will, and we may choose to exercise it in ways that end up hurting other people. -Francis Collins

You have to believe in a placebo or it won't work, but if it works, it's obviously working in some indirect way, through feedback in the immune system, let us say, or in the willpower of the patient to take a more strenuous exercise in their own therapy. -Charles Jencks

I don't have a trainer. Crazy, right? But I don't need anyone to motivate me. I love exercise, even things like the elliptical and stretching. -Catherine Zeta-Jones

I still don't like authority exercised without reason. But they laugh at you at Cambridge if you say that sort of thing. For them, the law is a system of rules not that different from mathematics. -John Lloyd

The theatre is one of those muscles – if you don't exercise it, it becomes a strange and truly fearful place. -Dawn French

I like playing sport, and I like doing physical stuff. I like hiking and I like climbing and I like playing sport. I do a lot. But I don't like the term 'exercising.' I feel like with sport, you're playing games. But with exercise, you're literally just trying to stop yourself from dying too young. It's weird. -James McAvoy

I lead a very active lifestyle. When I am not working, I enjoy snowboarding in winter. I golf and swim in the summer months. However, trying to find the time to exercise when I am traveling is quite a challenge. I find myself working out at hotel gyms quite regularly – just so that I can keep up with my training. -Lee Byung-hun

Having – and keeping to – a regular exercise routine is crucial. And forget about those extreme diets – they aren't healthy. -Lee Byung-hun

When I was 20, my husband at the time looked at me said, 'You're fat; go run.' There weren't a lot of tools at the end of the '70s to lose weight. It took me a while to realize what kind of exercise would make me happy and I would look forward to doing. And running became it. -Kim Alexis

I'm pretty fit, naturally. I do moderate exercise, and I try to eat pretty well and I think it has an effect on me. But hey, I'm putting on the insulin tire like everybody else, but that's just a function of getting older. -Mel Gibson

A tablet replacing an exercise book is not innovation, it's just a different way to make notes. -Geoff Mulgan

Both sexes like the exercise and challenge of sports, but for men it's also a basic display behavior for impressing and winning a mate. -Helen Fisher

Every school should have well-rehearsed emergency response protocols covering a variety of possible scenarios, from fire to armed intruders. Schools should have good lines of communications with local emergency response officials and practice those relationships in drills and special exercises. -Irwin Redlener

Many futurists use a checklist approach to make sure they're covering a sufficiently wide set of topics in terms of both research and brainstorming during a foresight exercise. -Jamais Cascio

I am proud of my husband, Marcus, the love of my life, and his Swiss heritage. Even though I have been a dual citizen since I was married in 1978, I have never exercised any rights of that citizenship. -Michele Bachmann

Personal style isn't simply an exercise in parroting but rather an exhibition for our own stories – from the gait of our walk to the rhythm of our speech to the manner in which the necktie falls from the knot. -LZ Granderson

No genuine choice is ever simply a matter of the arbitrary exercise of will. Take your choice of lunch today. You can't decide to want anything, but what you want will at least in part be a result of a series of other choices and judgments you've made in your life to date. -Julian Baggini

Intelligence alone does not get us where we need to go or even necessarily where we want to go. For that, the human creature must exercise harder-won capacities of wisdom, and wise action. -Krista Tippett

Never, ever exercise in front of a TV or while reading. You lose 50 percent of the benefit of the exercise by not hearing and feeling your heart rate, your sweat and the pain levels that need to be encountered in fitness training. -Kevin R. Stone

I'm extremely self-critical. Although I try not to be ridiculous about it, wearing horsehair shirts and all that. It's a private exercise I don't necessarily share with other people. -Gina McKee

I love yoga, and I love circuit training where you can do five exercises, 15-20 reps of each exercise, and I do it five times in a row – it only takes twenty minutes, and you can do it anywhere. You feel instantly better. -Jessica Lowndes

I try and work out as often as possible. Since I travel very often, it becomes very difficult to have a daily work out routine, but I practice yoga every day or try and play some sport. Also, I am very aware of what suits my body in terms of food and exercise. -Deepika Padukone

I used to be a compulsive exerciser, but I'm over that. -Courtney Thorne-Smith

Culture has worked by coming to exercise a form of mind control over us. We willingly accept and even embrace this mind control, and probably without even knowing it. -Mark Pagel

If a brain is exercised properly, anyone can grow intelligence, at any age, and potentially by a lot. Or you can just let your brain idle – and watch it slowly, inexorably, go to seed like a sedentary body. -Michael Merzenich

My mantra: Brainless exercise is a lost opportunity for improvement. -Michael Merzenich

I typically do yoga and I walk everywhere, and that's how I get my exercise. -Heather Doerksen

Much in the way Olympic athletes optimize their game by paying an enormous – borderline maniacal – amount of attention to things like diet, exercise, sleep, and of course the essential R&R, we all would do well to pay more attention to those key aspects of our lives that comprise our overall health equation. -David Agus

Remember that bodily exercise, when it is well ordered, as I have said, is also prayer by means of which you can please God our Lord. -Saint Ignatius

The only exercise I got as a kid was fork to mouth. Food was equated with love in my household. I thought you left the table when the zipper was down and you'd explode if you took another bite. I'd eat my plate and then everyone else's leftovers. -Paul Stanley

It's our hearts and brains that we should exercise more often. You can put on all the makeup you want, but it won't make your soul pretty. -Kevyn Aucoin

In a first pregnancy, you don't have a child yet, so you can nap and see movies and exercise. The notion of 'baby' is abstract. You look at the ultrasound and don't really understand that the creature you're seeing is soon going to be your roommate. -Kelli Williams

Why do I run? It's the best form of exercise. It's totally the core of being in shape. I really feel so good – anytime after the first mile. You start fantasying. You start thinking about things. -Tate Donovan

I've always taken a lot of exercise – I get a bit depressed if I don't. In terms of food, I'm a bit of a grazer. -Rupert Penry-Jones

'Eastbound & Down' is giving you a rhythm. It's just a whole different vibe with improv. As an actor I just kind of exercise within my environment and adjust depending on where I'm at. -Katy Mixon

I was diagnosed with a lung disorder that some people walk around with and don't even know they have. Through early diagnosis, I'm happy to share that I stay healthy with diet and exercise. -Tisha Campbell-Martin

We are not a country that subscribes to policing any part of the world. The areas we are comfortable with are capacity building, intelligence sharing, exchange of ships, call on each other's ports, joint training and exercises. -Salman Khurshid

If I eat junk food and have a workout the next day, I feel a significant difference in the way my body responds to exercise. I'm sluggish, tired and run out of energy very quickly. -Josie Loren

I've never loved spending time on the machines at the gym. But I have discovered an exercise regimen I can dedicate myself to: yoga. It's changed my body. -Judy Reyes

For years I exercised to be thinner, and I never got the results I wanted. When I finally started working out to be healthier, I saw a transformation. I've even quit weighing myself so I don't obsess over the numbers. -Judy Reyes

In my seventies, I exercised to stay ambulatory. In my eighties, I exercise to avoid assisted living. -Dick Van Dyke

The first, and overarching, count in the new indictment is that slavery permitted one group of people to exercise unrestrained personal domination over another group of people. -Robert Fogel

Try to think of working out and healthy eating as a lifestyle. Rather than go on a diet or try a crazy exercise routine, try making them something you do every day. -Allyson Felix

Now, we can't stop the devil from coming against us, but we can overcome him each time – if we exercise the authority of Jesus and decide not to put up with him. -Joyce Meyer

Actions speak louder than words. All companies say they care, right? But few actually exercise that care. -Simon Sinek

I make a sincere effort to do some form of exercise every day, except for Sunday. That's church and hang out day. -Johanna Braddy

I think that some people like to be someone other than themselves when acting, while others are most themselves. I fall into the second camp. For me, acting is a great exercise in getting to the truth about myself. -Kerry Bishe

Yoga is the most boring exercise. It's for people who are too lazy to get on the elliptical. Bikram, where they heat up the room to mimic India's climate, is especially stupid. People in India are not skinny because they're doing yoga in 105-degree rooms; they're skinny because there's no food. -Noureen DeWulf

I'm an exercise and yoga junkie and I feel good. -Lainie Kazan

Awareness is the key to everything. I think it's important to be aware of how you feel. How do you feel after you exercise? How do you feel after you eat something? I try to be mindful of the food I'm putting in my body, the products I use, and what I put in or on my body. -Lauren Bowles

I make sure that I laugh as much as possible, as its the best exercise, and if I'm really feeling the need to do some exercise, I'll go out with my best girls and dance the night away. -Sasha Jackson

I'd love to look like my mum when I am her age. She taught ballet for years, and my attitude to exercise and fitness has definitely been influenced by her. She's 84 now, and I've watched how well she has aged, and a lot of that is to do with her fantastic posture. -Sarah Parish

My eyebrows – they have a life of their own. I don't arch them on purpose; I don't do, like, arching exercises or anything, I promise! I try to maintain a neutral mass, but they just sort of go with whatever the situation is! -Seamus Dever

My main form of exercise is my bike. I don't have a car, so I cycle everywhere. -Sophie Okonedo

Just like you need to strengthen your core physically with exercise, you also need to strength your core spiritually. -Anne Graham Lotz

I'm not regimented. I don't diet, and I exercise the way I want to. -Lena Olin

Those who have come into Formula One without experiencing cars devoid of electronic aids will find it tough. To control 800 horse power relying just on arm muscles and foot sensitivity can turn out to be a dangerous exercise. -Michael Schumacher

I don't enjoy doing stand-up. I see it as being like exercise: I feel good about it after I've done it. -Jessie Cave

I work out religiously. It's great for my back. It's great for my core. I've been exposed to lots of exercise regimens and movement classes as an actor, so I understand the importance of stretching and staying limber, but Pilates is what's really spoken to me. It works everything out. -Thomas Gibson

The imagination is a muscle. If it is not exercised, it atrophies. -Neil Gaiman

I honestly think that kids should not exercise: they should keep fit through play. The most important age is zero to seven, both for the kid and the parent – for parents, because this is the time when your kid learns how to walk, talk and other behaviour. -Magnus Scheving

Certain characteristics about 'Marbury v. Madison' are, I think, indisputable. Marbury was the first Supreme Court decision ever to strike down an act of Congress as unconstitutional. Marbury stands for the authority of the Supreme Court to have and to exercise that power. -Cliff Sloan

The soul is a muscle, and it needs to be exercised a little every day. Say a morning prayer just to say something. -Catherine Hicks

In the 1960s, if you introduced a new product to America, 90% of the people who viewed it for the first time believed in the corporate promise. Then 40 years later if you performed the same exercise, less than 10% of the public believed it was true. The fracturing of trust is based on the fact that the consumer has been let down. -Howard Schultz

I've spent most of my life doing some sort of exercise, but I've learned to never push myself into doing it. I know that when I am up for it I will, and when I'm not in the mood to, I don't make myself feel badly over it. -Samaire Armstrong

When I was growing up, I did not exercise at all. I was raised in the French Quarter in New Orleans. If I saw someone running, I would call the police because I thought they stole something on Royal Street. -Richard Simmons

I spent my childhood eating. The only exercise I got was trying to twist off the cap of a jar of mayonnaise. -Richard Simmons

We're all in trouble, and we all need to sort of pick up the pieces and start to exercise more and really be careful with the food. -Richard Simmons

I write all the time, but you just want to be careful what you put out. That's all. You want to have the confidence that you've done what you need to do to it, because otherwise it's an exercise in vanity. -Dylan Moran

I didn't exercise. I worked all the time, went home and went to bed. -Jan Fields

I do moderate exercise, and I try to eat pretty well, and I think it has an effect on me. -Mel Gibson

I have an overactive brain, and as a result of that, I can really get in my own mind. So I like to try and exercise it to the point of exhaustion. -Jake Gyllenhaal

You have to have great passion, because to sing operatic music requires lots of work. I study for at least two hours every day. The voice is like an instrument and requires constant exercise. -Andrea Bocelli

We had an exercise in speech class in school, impromptu speaking, that I was always real good at. -John Mellencamp

I love improv. 'Crazy, Stupid, Love,' the script was really great, but the directors were open to letting you try different things. And that felt like a muscle I hadn't exercised in a really long time. -Emma Stone

I get very frustrated by this term 'genre exercise.' I mean, what exactly is that? Genre is not really relevant when you are writing a song; hopefully you are doing it to explore something, to create something, and I don't agree that any of my albums are genre exercises. -Elvis Costello

I'm just trying to spread the word and upturn the myth that actually you should be resting after cancer treatment. You shouldn't; you should be getting out and doing any kind of exercise you can. You don't have to run a marathon, but you just have to up your activity levels. -Jo Brand

Stand-up is the only thing in which you actually write it, act it and direct it simultaneously, so it's actually a great theater exercise. -Lewis Black

It is not my job to compare my movies. I don't like to compare my films with other movies because I don't really have that perspective. It is an intellectual exercise, but it doesn't intuitively come to me. -Steven Spielberg

The body needs to rest. It needs a lot less exercise than you think. -Sylvester Stallone

One of the first exercises we did in acting class my freshman year was to stand in two rows, two lines facing each other as a class, and just make sounds and move in some completely nonsensical way out into the center of the room. Sort of make an idiot out of yourself, essentially, but to be okay with that. -Chris Parnell

I grew up dancing, and for a while in college, I was a gym rat. I finally realized… I'm going to create a little more balance in my life and make exercise something that I enjoy doing. So I went back to dance when I started doing more musical theatre, and I've just found that it's the best thing that works for my body. -Christine Lakin

You can look at Bad Religion, and, really, almost everything I've ever done was an exercise in creativity. I've always had a desire to challenge and question authority, and that's where the fire inside comes from. I challenged authority out of a desire to make things better, not to be nihilistic about it. -Greg Graffin

It's very tricky to throw a morally flexible character onto the screen and have an audience empathize. It's always an exercise in restraint. -Ryan Reynolds

If I'm going to go out to be a solo artist, it's because I want to do something different without having to wait on someone else's schedule or hobbies or be limited by other people's prejudices. I'd be kind of stupid not to exercise that. -Chris Cornell

For many years, I was obsessed about what I was eating, how many calories it had, and how much exercise I'd have to do. -Dennis Quaid

I'm from the South – I love to eat, and that's why I have to exercise. -Kelly Rowland

Most Christian leadership is exercised by people who do not know how to develop healthy, intimate relationships and have opted for power and control instead. Many Christian empire-builders have been people unable to give and receive love. -Henri Nouwen

Architecture is a rare collective profession: it's always exercised by groups. There is an essential modesty, which is a complete contradiction to the notion of a star. -Rem Koolhaas

I do pool exercises, like weightlifting but underwater. I walk, I swim… I'm pretty fit for an old bloke. -Eric Idle

I have never felt more confident in myself, more clear on who I am as a woman. But I am constantly thinking about my own health and making sure that I'm eating right and getting exercise and watching the aches and pains. I want to be this really fly 80-90-year old. -Michelle Obama

I have high blood sugars, and Type 2 diabetes is not going to kill me. But I just have to eat right, and exercise, and lose weight, and watch what I eat, and I will be fine for the rest of my life. -Tom Hanks

When I work, a lot of times I have to lose weight, and I do that, but in my regular life I was not eating right, and I was not getting enough exercise. But by the nature of my diet and that lifestyle – boom! The end result was high blood sugars that reach the levels where it becomes Type 2 diabetes. I share that with a gajillion other people. -Tom Hanks

What I like about gyrotonics is you feel like you really elongated yourself for the day… As we all get older, everything changes and moves, and there's natural ways to exercise. I think it's important, and I think it's something that can help keep things in place. -Naomi Campbell

We were promised that we would have Jehovah, Jesus Christ, as our Savior and Redeemer. He would assure that we would all be resurrected. And He would make it possible for us to pass the test of life if we exercised faith in Him by being obedient. -Henry B. Eyring

The Holy Ghost brings back memories of what God has taught us. And one of the ways God teaches us is with his blessings; and so, if we choose to exercise faith, the Holy Ghost will bring God's kindnesses to our remembrance. -Henry B. Eyring

I do think that exercise is important, not only to keep you in shape but also for your state of mind. However, I am not fanatical about it. -Donatella Versace

When I learned that flour pound for pound has as many calories as sugar, and that when eating pasta you're basically eating cake, I was size 23, and my neck was restricting my breathing, and so I got on a microbiotic diet and got myself an exercise bike. -Caitlin Moran

Doing 20 minutes of stretching, light weights and floor exercises three times a week takes the same amount of time as a long coffee break – and eating a tuna fish salad, sardines on toast or scrambled eggs is surely preferable to a Big Mac or KFC. -Joan Collins

One of the main secrets to staying young is staying healthy. I've sometimes had to suppress a smile when some young lady, who has obviously not taken care of herself through diet or exercise, says admiringly, 'Ooh, I hope I look as good as you do when I'm your age!' Although it's intended to be complimentary, it's actually a back-hander. -Joan Collins

I like to eat. I'm always on the edge of how much can I eat without looking too – you know. If I eat something salty, it makes me want something sweet. I eat something sweet, then I want salty. And exercise is not my thing, though I do it. -Salma Hayek

I will not have Botox. You know why? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetable, I eat everything. If you exercise and you don't eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin. -Salma Hayek

I'll immediately gain, like, 5 pounds even just by thinking about cutting out dessert. It's a nightmare. I decided, for me, the healthiest thing was to eat what I want and just exercise. Some women can watch what they eat, but I just can't do that. -Gwyneth Paltrow

My main exercise is cardio. The treadmill is fine, but running outdoors gives me the best results. I try to log 6 to 8 miles a week. I could be in the worst mood, but when I do my cardio, I feel much, much better. -Mary J. Blige

I don't care what size you are or how old you are – once you see the results brought to you by regular exercise, you'll wonder how you survived without it. -Rachel Nichols

It's not my passion to wake up at 6:00 in the morning to do my exercises. Sometimes I really hate it. I'm lazy. -Sibel Kekilli

I look at how my kids view exercise. They have a complete understanding that nutrition and exercise go hand in hand. I didn't think like that when I was a kid. But they have a real consciousness about it that I'd like to think comes from the years of attention we've put into this. -Michelle Obama

I exercise at least five times a week with stretching, Pilates, push-ups, planks, sit- ups, squats and light weights. -Reba McEntire

A memoir forces me to stop and remember carefully. It is an exercise in truth. In a memoir, I look at myself, my life, and the people I love the most in the mirror of the blank screen. In a memoir, feelings are more important than facts, and to write honestly, I have to confront my demons. -Isabel Allende

Musicals are hard for me because I got thrown out of the glee club in high school, because I couldn't sing in tune at the time. I can sing in tune now, but I have to work really hard on it to make sure that I don't exercise one of my great talents, which is the ability to sing in three keys at the same time. -Alan Alda

I like to work when I'm not working – do something that may not be considered work, but to me it's work. Getting exercise by going to the grocery store. -Andy Warhol

You can't make everybody love you. It's an exercise in futility, and it's probably not even a good idea to try. -Robert Crumb

I live in the country, so I get a fair amount of exercise. We heat our house with wood, so I split wood. We also live on a steep hill, and I have to rake and put in cross-stitches to keep the road from washing out when there's a big rain. -Pete Seeger

My life as a professional musician is a joyless exercise in futility. -Robert Fripp

Variety is important when it comes to exercise. I don't do anything that bores me to tears. -Alanis Morissette

When you're singing, you're using extra muscles, and it requires a lot of exercise and breathing. You can't do that if you're a sissy. If I have any fitness advice for people, I'd tell them to sing more. It's good therapy, too. -Willie Nelson

Freedom is not just declared; it is exercised. -Ferdinand Marcos

Look at our society. Everyone wants to be thin, but nobody wants to diet. Everyone wants to live long, but few will exercise. Everybody wants money, yet seldom will anyone budget or control their spending. -John C. Maxwell

Sometimes I take this women's exercise class called Core Fusion at a place called Exhale. I shouldn't say it's a women's class. There's maybe two men. -Mike Birbiglia

I look back upon my Liberal political beliefs with a sort of wonder – as another exercise in self-involvement – rewarding myself for some superiority I could not logically describe. -David Mamet

I have always done exercise because I was a dancer, and it is probably good for you. I have done yoga consistently. -Francesca Annis

I've always danced and exercised. I can't imagine not doing it. I'll be Martha Graham in my 90s doing contractions on the floor. -Madonna Ciccone

The older I get, the less jarring I want my exercise to be, and I find that a long walk is equally as helpful and satisfying as a three-mile jog. -Kim Cattrall

Every time I exercise, I do something different based on which areas need to get in motion. -Sharon Stone

I go on benders where I just exercise like a maniac. And then I go on benders where I just can only take baths. Like, I have to lay down to bathe, and I could go on that for six months. -Sharon Stone

When people around me are getting rattled, I may just close my eyes and do a breathing exercise. -Carla Hall

I am rubbish at the gym. I prefer to exercise by moving around – it doesn't matter whether I am dancing on a Friday night or on my bike getting from A to B. -Erin O'Connor

I'm sure I've all but lost friends by maintaining that, despite their love for it, I always saw Stanley Kramer's 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World' as more of an exercise in anti-comedy than humor. -Dick Cavett

Even when you're out with someone, you need to get out of your head. And you can try exercises by putting yourself in situations where you may not feel completely comfortable, like going to a gallery opening on your own. -Hill Harper

The adoption of gloves for all contests will do more to preserve the practice of boxing than any other conceivable means. It will give pugilism new life, not only as a professional boxer's art, but as a general exercise. -John Boyle O'Reilly

The Greeks were the first boxers. Pugilism appears to have been one of the earliest distinctions in play and exercise that appeared between the Hellenes and their Asiatic fathers. The unarmed personal encounter was indicative of a sturdier manhood. -John Boyle O'Reilly

With the advent of chivalry, the art of boxing waned. The evolution of feudal aristocracy, with other and widely different exercises, pastimes and weapons from those of the common people, made boxing unfashionable. -John Boyle O'Reilly

Prize-Fighting is not the aim of boxing. This noble exercise ought not to be judged by the dishonesty or the low lives of too many of its professional followers. Let it stand alone, an athletic practice, on the same footing as boating or football. -John Boyle O'Reilly

Putting prize-fighting altogether aside as one of the unavoidable evils attending on this manly exercise, the inestimable value of boxing as a training, discipline, and development of boys and young men remains. -John Boyle O'Reilly

Exercise is important, but exercise in a gym is not important. Go and take a walk outside. Skip the umpteenth coffee date and go for a hike instead. Take the stairs. Walk your errands. -Daphne Oz

My dad, who is a heart surgeon, works with many adult patients who did not take good care of their bodies in their formative years. He is able to teach them how to break old eating and exercise habits and reshape their bodies, but not without a great deal of resistance. -Daphne Oz

Since I started CrossFit, I've read and heard about the critics talk about how unsafe it is, and my only response to that is any form of exercise can be unsafe if you don't have the proper coaching, education and guidance. -Bob Harper

I never really ate that bad, I just ate too much. It wasn't like I had to switch to whole wheat bread or something like that. I really just had to eat less of what I was eating, and I had to exercise more. -Patrick Stump

I've seen so many people – loved ones and colleagues – who jump from one diet to the next, one exercise regimen to the next . I was trying to figure out what were some of the basic things that each of us can build into a lifestyle for good, instead of bouncing from one thing to the next. -Tom Rath

Half an hour of exercise in the morning makes for better interactions all day. Then a sound night of sleep gives me energy to tackle the next day. I am a more active parent, a better spouse, and more engaged in my work when I eat, move, and sleep well. -Tom Rath

Writing music is such a freeing exercise, and it's really nice to play in that world of being confident, vengeful – getting back at all the bad boyfriends. -Gin Wigmore

The spirit, like the body, can be strengthened and developed by frequent exercise. Just as the body, if neglected, grows weaker and finally impotent, so the spirit perishes if untended. -Wassily Kandinsky

I come from a family that loves to eat, not exercise. Being fat made even walking hard. -Joe Bastianich

I think my collection is doing really well, but collaborating is actually just a nice exercise in doing something different. For example, I do things very differently for Moncler that I wouldn't specifically do for me. For me, I can do whatever I want. With other companies, you have to stay responsible to them. -Thom Browne

I exercise every day. I don't get up and have a cup of coffee anymore, I get up and move to get blood to my brain. -Carmen Dell'Orefice

I don't like talking about which bits I like or don't like about my body. Everybody has something they're not happy with, and my only advice would be, 'Do something about it – exercise or eat less, but don't do nothing!' Find ways to enhance the good bits and camouflage the bad bits. -Twiggy

I love exercise, but I find it boring doing the same thing all the time, so I fluctuate between going to the gym, doing Pilates, and taking dance lessons. -Twiggy

The most extremist power any political leader can assert is the power to target his own citizens for execution without any charges or due process, far from any battlefield. The Obama administration has not only asserted exactly that power in theory, but has exercised it in practice. -Glenn Greenwald

Getting up to Zaire – getting ready to fight Muhammad Ali – I thought this will be a matter of just a little exercise. I'll probably knock him out in three rounds. Two, three – maybe three and a half rounds. That was the most confidence I had in my whole life. -George Foreman

The United Nations passed so-called sanctions again on North Korea, and they've said they 'will exercise their preemptive right to a nuclear attack.' I don't think this ought to be taken kindly. -Oliver North

Running is very rhythmic, and I have written a lot of lyrics while out running. It's a very musical exercise, and sometimes I like to sing when I run. Your whole body is doing the same thing. -Sarah McLachlan

I wrote 'Hereafter' quickly and without mapping it out too much or being too schematic. As an exercise, I think that was incredibly important. -Peter Morgan

I get so much inspiration from my travels, but I also started an exercise where I write down so many words every week. Then I begin crossing them off. We create a grid of words and also images, but words for me are more ample because you can interpret them your own way. -Francisco Costa

My best tip: Create re-occurring calendar events for your exercise times. When a conflict arises, it forces you to consciously choose work over exercise, and often you'll find you have time for both. -Jessica Scorpio

What is the real purpose behind the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus? They seem like greater steps toward faith and imagination, each with a payoff. Like cognitive training exercises. -Chuck Palahniuk

Teasing and a sense of humor, if you can develop that in your kids, and if you can exercise it with the kids, just makes for a pleasanter atmosphere. -P. J. O'Rourke

Predicting innovation is something of a self-canceling exercise: the most probable innovations are probably the least innovative. -P. J. O'Rourke

I'm convinced that what kids need today are parents – not buddies. They need someone who will exercise mature judgment. -Zig Ziglar

Democracy is liberty – a liberty which does not infringe on the liberty nor encroach on the rights of others; a liberty which maintains strict discipline, and makes law its guarantee and the basis of its exercise. This alone is true liberty; this alone can produce true democracy. -Chiang Kai-shek

Good diet and exercise are key, but abject fear has its own rewards. And arriving on the first day for rehearsals for 'Spamalot' and seeing all these much younger, much fitter people, who I was going to be on stage with, became a catalyst for cutting out the more unhealthy aspects of my life. -Sanjeev Bhaskar

I always feel calmer when I exercise. In fact, that's probably the main reason I exercise. -Gretchen Rubin

We are accountable for our actions as we exercise our moral agency. If we understand this principle and make righteous choices, our lives will be blessed. -L. Lionel Kendrick

Judges are the people who have to protect the rights of individuals, have to protect the rights of minorities, have to protect the rights in the Constitution, have to protect the requirement that the executive and the legislature not simply exercise raw power but adhere to standards of reasonableness and constitutionality. -Jed S. Rakoff

I have seen many storms in my life. Most storms have caught me by surprise, so I had to learn very quickly to look further and understand that I am not capable of controlling the weather, to exercise the art of patience and to respect the fury of nature. -Paulo Coelho

Designing was an effortless exercise and something I always enjoyed. -Mary McFadden

I have this exercise where I force myself to look out from the flower's point of view at these great walloping humans coming down the path, and try, just try and feel it from their point of view because it's a different world to them, a fascinating hard one. -Alice Oswald

To those who believe but wish their belief to be strengthened, I urge you to walk in faith and trust in God. Spiritual knowledge always requires an exercise of faith. -James E. Faust

For students, the evolution-creation discussion can be a useful exercise, for it can help develop their critical thinking skills. -Ken Ham

I have always taken care of my body; I'm not a drinker, I've never smoked. And I've always exercised. That's all you have to do. -Ralph Hall

During times of emergencies, civil crisis, or natural disasters it is important for persons to remain free to exercise their constitutional rights in a lawful and appropriate manner, and I believe it is important that we provide individuals with specific reassurance that we value those rights. -Colleen Hanabusa

After four centuries of Spanish rule, Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States in 1898. Residents were granted U.S. citizenship in 1917, and the federal government has allowed Puerto Rico to exercise authority over its local affairs in a manner similar to the 50 states. -Pedro Pierluisi

I'm a socially concerned citizen of India. I have strong views on issues of social and political relevance. But it's very difficult to voice it in an intelligent manner without it sounding contrived. Because people think you're saying or doing all this as a PR exercise, not from your heart. -Sonam Kapoor

Dance is something I really enjoy; it gives me a different kind of happiness, something more spiritual. Plus it's good exercise; I'm happy doing it, and it all shows! -Madhuri Dixit

Looking beautiful isn't just about what you apply on your face. It's the little things you do that matter. A combination of a good diet, exercise, healthy habits, discipline, dancing etc. is what my beauty routine consists of. Also, I have no bad habits; I don't drink or smoke. All these contribute to me being fit and looking good. -Madhuri Dixit

I love my body. And, I'm always working out. I'm an exercise freak, be it cardio, weights, t'ai chi or yoga. -Kajol

I have something called exercise bulimia, which is where you rid of your calories by over-exercising. -Jamie-Lynn Sigler

I would have never wanted to write another management book. There are so many of them, and everybody says the same thing about them, and they are all the same – they give the exact same advice. It's like a diet book; they all say eat less calories, exercise more, and every single book has the same conclusion. -Ben Horowitz

When I joined the freedom movement in Mississippi in my early 20s, it was to come to the aid of sharecroppers, like my parents, who had been thrown off the land they'd always known – the plantations – because they attempted to exercise their 'democratic' right to vote. -Alice Walker

I use the exercise room early, because I don't want to get on the treadmill and everyone's going 'Oh, Bill Cosby,' and then they come around to see how fast I'm walking, and it becomes very competitive. -Bill Cosby

I find if my body feels well and I exercise regularly, I think better, work better and feel better. -Helmut Jahn

It's all very well setting up your own brand of face cream or exercise wear – but Christ, it's so shallow. -Jasmine Guinness

I don't believe in diets, as I always put whatever I lost right back on again. I think we should all just eat healthily and get as much exercise as we can. -Jasmine Guinness

It was easy being healthy when I was young. I was full of energy, so sports and physical challenges were fun. But as I got older and the spring left my step, exercise became harder, and eating, drinking and watching TV became easier. By the time I was 50, I'd put on 50 pounds. -Robert Kiyosaki

A child knows when they are on the receiving end of a didactic exercise, or when they are sitting in the shadow of something else. -Tim Crouch

The Beijing Olympics were an exercise in Chinese soft power. Americans have the 'Voice of America' and the Fulbright scholarships. But, the fact is, in fact, that probably Hollywood and MTV and McDonalds have done more for American soft power around the world than any specifically government activity. -Shashi Tharoor

Love and hate have a magical transforming power. They are the great soul changers. We grow through their exercise into the likeness of what we contemplate. -George William Russell

The pleasure of work is open to anyone who can develop some specialised skill, provided that he can get satisfaction from the exercise of his skill without demanding universal applause. -Bertrand Russell

I am not a fitness freak, but I do my regular exercises. -Uday Kiran

I have a half an hour warm-up I do that my voice teacher gave me. I exercise at least for an hour during the day. I don't have any superstitious rituals or anything like that. -Josh Young

I like to focus on making the music sound simple and true, and very lush and full. I think music should take you to somewhere else where you have the space to contemplate or exercise your imagination. All the while you should be feeling real good, like when you have a delicious and decadent meal, macaroni and cheese or foie gras. -Alice Smith

I want to do primarily film and theater; I always want to do a play because it feeds my soul. It's like an exercise on stage. -Nonso Anozie

Sexy is attitude, but fitness for me is my dance. I dance two hours nearly every day. You break into good sweat, and it doesn't even feel like exercise. Apart from that, I enjoy Pilates. -Jiah Khan

Since becoming an alleged adult, I've always felt like I should exercise – or should at least want to exercise – and make a feeble attempt at health, thus staving off terrible things like the coronary heart disease and high cholesterol described to me in 1980s margarine commercials. -Ali Liebegott

This is not what anyone wants to hear, just like somebody who wants to lose weight doesn't want to hear 'diet and exercise,' but I think giving yourself time and abstaining from interaction is the only way to get over somebody. -Julie Klausner

Reading is an exercise for learning how to write and vice versa. I have read myself into being a Christian, but I have also written myself into being a Christian. -Stanley Hauerwas

The world does not have time to be with the poor, to learn with the poor, to listen to the poor. To listen to the poor is an exercise of great discipline, but such listening surely is what is required if charity is not to become a hatred of the poor for being poor. -Stanley Hauerwas

I don't like to use writing assignments, exercises. I think too often people get comfortable writing in that vein, but you can't go on to write a novel comprised of short writing exercises. -Chang-Rae Lee

If you set goals for yourself, and you're like a lot of other people, you probably realize it's not that your goals are physically impossible that's keeping you from achieving them; it's that you lack the self-discipline to stick to them. It's physically possible to lose weight. It's physically possible to exercise more. -Daniel Goldstein

I think self-discipline is something, it's like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. -Daniel Goldstein

I have tennis shoes with little rhinestones that I slip on if I exercise. But I always wear heels, even around the house. I'm such a short little thing, I can't reach my kitchen cabinets. -Dolly Parton

Spiritual 'exercise' keeps your mind in shape the way physical exercise keeps your body in shape. -Marianne Williamson

In many cases, Obama's exercise of authoritarian power is criminal. His executive branch is responsible for violations of the Arms Export Control Act in shipping weapons to Syria, the Espionage Act in Libya, and IRS law with regard to the targeting of conservative groups. -Ben Shapiro

I think there are lots of ways to exercise ambition and accomplish things using leadership without going into elected politics. So, categorically, I have no intention of going into elected politics. None. -Chris Hadfield

My campaign is about getting pets to be more active, and exercise with your animal is a great way for people to exercise. When you're out with your pet, it becomes fun. You don't think of it as a chore. For me, taking my dog out for a walk is very relaxing. -Misty May-Treanor

I used to spend a couple of hours in the weight room, but really, an hour is long enough. I lift twice a week and on other days incorporate more core yoga and different exercises. It's important to listen to your body. I will shut it down if I'm tired. -Misty May-Treanor

Swimming is probably the ultimate of burnout sports. It's ironic because millions of people who swim as their regular exercise love the meditation aspect of it; you don't wind up with any orthopedic injuries. But when you swim at a world class level for hours and hours – the loneness of the long distance runner. -Diana Nyad

Obviously, exercise is an important part of my life, and I think taking care of yourself is an important part of every individual's health care. -Aaron Schock

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

I was an embarrassment to the department when they did research assessment exercises. A message would go round the department: 'Please give a list of your recent publications.' And I would send back a statement: 'None.' -Peter Higgs

I am a Mormon because I love the Lord Jesus Christ. And as I exercise faith in Him, I am blessed with the Holy Spirit in my life. -Jane Clayson

We all exercise agency in the choices we make. -Gordon B. Hinckley

My concern is not for the judicial system, but for the reality that the shark fin mafia of Costa Rica has a price on my head, and a Costa Rican prison would provide an excellent opportunity for someone to exercise this lethal contract against me. -Paul Watson

I glory in the fact that a human being has multiple talents and exercises them all with a degree of integrity and artistic proficiency. That's what I do. -Theodore Bikel

Medicare is a monopoly: a central-planning bureaucracy grafted onto American health care. It exercises a stranglehold on the health care of all Americans over 65, and on the medical practices of almost all physicians. Medicare decides what is legitimate and what is not: which prices may be charged and which services may be rendered. -Virginia Postrel

I have exercises that lead participants to discover for themselves that their deepest fulfillment comes when what they're doing is of benefit to larger society in some way. This really knocks some for a loop – especially those schooled in the 'take no prisoners' approach. -Srikumar Rao

Sustainable development is the pathway to the future we want for all. It offers a framework to generate economic growth, achieve social justice, exercise environmental stewardship and strengthen governance. -Ban Ki-moon

It's fun for me to try to write concise, compact things. It's a very good exercise for me. And I think it's important to try to do different things – change what I write about, and also the way I write. Otherwise, I'd just be repeating myself, which wouldn't be good for me or fair to my readers. -William T. Vollmann

It's always, you know, a pleasant exercise to imagine my own death because then I'm so happy when I can stop. -William T. Vollmann

I hate leg exercises. I hate one-legged squats. I hate the hurdles and the split squats. I hate all the leg exercises. I know they help me, and I'm able to move around and don't have knee problems, and my hip doesn't hurt anymore, but when my trainer tells me I have to do them, I almost feel like my body goes into convulsions. -Michael Strahan

The Internet has introduced an enormously accessible and egalitarian platform for creating, sharing and obtaining information on a global scale. As a result, we have new ways to allow people to exercise their human and civil rights. -Vint Cerf

Our bodies are truly the result of what we eat, what we think about, and the exercise we receive. If we are not wise, these little things can soon cause major health problems that will limit our success and ability to serve. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Many run primarily for the exercise, but others run to condition themselves for well-publicized races of various distances. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Clear limits should be set on how power is exercised in cyberspace by companies as well as governments through the democratic political process and enforced through law. -Rebecca MacKinnon

Facebook is not a physical country, but with 900 million users, its 'population' comes third after China and India. It may not be able to tax or jail its inhabitants, but its executives, programmers, and engineers do exercise a form of governance over people's online activities and identities. -Rebecca MacKinnon

Now if I don't take exercise I feel a bit frazzled. -Ben Elliot

A 'Globe' examination found that Boston police officers exercise broad discretion when deciding whether to issue a ticket. -Bill Dedman

Seriously, who really cares how long the Nile river is, or who was the first to discover cheese? How is memorizing that ever going to help anyone? Instead, we need to give kids projects that allow them to exercise their minds and discover things for themselves. -Aaron Swartz

I lead by example. My kids know what sweat is. They've seen me come home from so many runs and asked, 'What's on your skin? How did you get it?' And I tell them, 'It's from exercise!' So now my son will come home from a bike ride, take off his helmet and say, 'Look, Mom. I'm sweating! I just worked out!' -Summer Sanders

The kids know what I'm doing when I exercise, and that's powerful. So don't just tell your kids to go play outside. Take a moment off your computer, put on your tennis shoes, hop outside and help them start their game and run off some energy. -Summer Sanders

Whenever I am not traveling during the winter, I am pushing hard in the gym. Even when I am traveling, I try to fit a workout in at the hotel. And if the hotel doesn't have a gym? You can get a good workout in your room with an exercise band and some imagination. -Charlie Kimball

I need insulin to stay alive. It's just therapy to keep going. What I can do is make sure that I keep my blood sugar down to a reasonable level. I can exercise, and I can eat properly. And insulin plays a very big part in that. -Mary Tyler Moore

Not far from my apartment, within a stretch of no more than 500 feet, there are two doggie gyms where Gotham's canines who aren't getting enough exercise running through the city's parks, or are neglecting their all-important doggie glutes and abs, can go for a workout. What can I say? This appalls me. -David Rakoff

I have good genes, and I also do lots of exercises. -Leroy Hood

I travel often, which can make maintaining a workout schedule a little difficult, but I try to make time for it whenever I can. Sometimes I wake up extra early so I can fit in a run or a bike ride, and other days I'll just blast music and jump around or watch a 30-minute exercise video. -Bethany Mota

I tried to go to the gym a while ago and hurt my foot. I thought, 'Well, exercise and I just aren't meant to be.' -Sophie Winkleman

Try to exercise gentleness, kindness and humour, and you cannot go far wrong. -Sophie Winkleman

If I could only do one exercise, it would be dead lifting. For cardio, I dance, I ride my bike, I run and I have kids. There is a… lot of cardio just from being a parent. -Hugh Jackman

I take for granted that for the imaginative writer, the exercise of the imagination is part of the basic process of coping with reality, just as actors need to act all the time to make up for some deficiency in their sense of themselves. -J. G. Ballard

I suggest Substituting Inedible Nurturance, or SIN. Don't replace overeating with virtuous work or exercise; instead, make a list of things you love, from watching TV to hanging out with favorite people. -Martha Beck

According to the comprehensive Global Burden of Disease project, the leading risk factors for ill health and premature death are linked to lifestyle, what we eat and drink and how much we exercise. Disease prevention does not occur in the hospital. We need the whole of society to be involved. -Jonas Gahr Store

I used to be that crazy person that was strict about what I did and didn't eat. I was so diligent with exercise. And as soon as I stopped thinking about it, I lost weight. I wasn't stressing about it. The balance and relaxing is what's really helped me. -Phoebe Tonkin

My eyebrows – they have a life of their own. I don't arch them on purpose; I don't do, like, arching exercises or anything, I promise! -Seamus Dever

I learned how to eat right and learned portion control and how to exercise. Staying persistent over the years, I have been able to change the way I'm perceived on the outside. -Kevin Schmidt

Being able to make work – if it's on your terms, and it's a good fit with the people who are supporting it – can be a very interesting exercise. When it doesn't work is when an artist just connects with a brand, and they try to take advantage of each other. -Marco Brambilla

My exercise varies from yoga to Pilates. The yoga provides me with achieving my balance and mental relaxation, whereas the Pilates allow me to work my inner core through stretching and keeping my muscles toned. -Erin Heatherton

I will always have pain. But I exercise as much as I can, and I find that makes a huge difference. And if my body does seize up, I have a pain plan in place. If it escalates, I go back to my doctor. -Jennifer Grey

Take all the hype out of the exercise and think of it as brushing your teeth. -Nicole Ari Parker

I like a lot of things about yoga – its an intro to good music; with each good teacher you study with, you learn a lot about them personally; it's not just about specific technique or poses. I also like Shavasana – not too many exercise routines let you nap at the end of them. You don't see nap pods in CrossFit gyms. -Charles Michael Davis

I don't smoke, drink. I exercise, drink lots of water, eat well, don't sun. Me cuido. There's a lot of things that I want to do. -Thalia

I'm an ordinary Tasmanian like everybody else, and I have weight issues; I have issues around finding the time to do the exercise and things, but in my role as Health Minister, and in my role as myself as well, I have to look after my own health. -Lara Giddings

I am just as ordinary as anyone else, and I also have my problems, but I also am responsible for my own health. So I'll be on that exercise bike, I'll be out there walking and try to improve my health and diet as much as I'm expecting of other Tasmanians. -Lara Giddings

When I go to my health club, and it's in the basement, you have to take the elevator down. And this drives me crazy. Why can't there be a stairway? At least make it as easy to exercise as it is to not exercise. It's in society's interest for me to take the stairs. -Malcolm Gladwell

You can't consider a president weak because he will have a Congress that Mexican voters have wanted to be co-responsible in the decisions to be taken… It will be through the leadership that I will exercise that we will be able to build the agreements in Congress. -Enrique Pena Nieto

Most professional women I know – myself included – long since gave up looking for a rulebook or a roadmap; we make it up as we go along. Every day presents a new choice, a new challenge, which makes long-term career planning seem like an especially abstract exercise. -Nancy Gibbs

What studies say the number one best way to start an exercise habit is to give yourself a reward that you genuinely enjoy. -Charles Duhigg

Your brain will eventually enjoy exercise for exercise sake, right; endorphins and endocannabinoids will create a sense of reward, but it doesn't know that at first. -Charles Duhigg

Someone will write a resolution that says, 'I want to exercise more,' or 'I want to lose 15 pounds' – which is great, that's a great goal to have – but every study tells us that if you pose things in abstract, goal-related terms, it's much less likely that you will accomplish it than if you structure it as an actual activity. -Charles Duhigg

I work legs, upper body, everything. Legs are very important. I do hang cleans and squats – I do primary exercises. Squats work over 60 percent of your muscle mass in your body. The hang cleans work on my explosive movement, which is essential for success. -Larry Fitzgerald

History does not record in its annals any lasting domination exercised by one people over another, of different race, of diverse usages and customs, of opposite and divergent ideals. One of the two had to yield and succumb. -Jose Rizal

The sea does not belong to despots. Upon its surface men can still exercise unjust laws, fight, tear one another to pieces, and be carried away with terrestrial horrors. But at thirty feet below its level, their reign ceases, their influence is quenched, and their power disappears. -Jules Verne

Numerous observations made upon fevers, somnambulisms, and other human maladies, seem to prove that the moon does exercise some mysterious influence upon man. -Jules Verne

My parents didn't exercise, so it was not something I saw was good for you or fun. I wish I had grown up knowing to do that. -Christina Hendricks

I just have to express myself somehow, either through singing, dance or fitness. You get sick of it; you have days where you think you don't want to do it, but generally after I've done something, I feel better. That's why I do the exercise: to earn my bar of chocolate and cappuccino. -Bonnie Langford

There's no better exercise than dancing. 'Dancing with the Stars' is amazing. I used to take it for granted, but the three months you spend on the show, with that grueling regimen, you just shed weight. You can eat anything you want and it doesn't stick. -Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Going to grocery stores is almost my favorite thing to do to calm myself down. There's something about just walking aisle after aisle making mundane choices. 'Do I want that? No, I want the one that has the low sodium.' And that feels like a good exercise to be doing when there isn't anything to be doing. It's like a kick-starter in some way. -Shane Carruth

I used to teach improv courses in Amsterdam where we would do team-building exercises, and they can go south very quickly. -Ike Barinholtz

I do believe in exercise and eating right. And I'm not an avid exerciser. I exercise twice a week. -Jennifer Flavin

My parents both work in publishing, and I was a bright, academic kind of kid, and I read a lot of books, and when you read a lot, I guess the muscle that gets exercised is where you can hear the voices in your head. You can turn words into pictures and into sounds and into colours and smells. -Harry Lloyd

I went on Accutane, which is very strong. Your sebaceous glands dry up, you can't exercise, and you have very dry lips. But it was a miracle, and it worked. -Trinny Woodall

I think variety is the spice of sticking with an exercise routine, whether it's getting a dance tape one day, or getting a tape with those stretchy things to work with resistance on a different day. -Christie Brinkley

The thing that always strikes me is how much power one person has. Everybody has so much power to help and to change if they just exercise it and get after it. -Pete Carroll

A guy like Bruce Lee, I've always been a fan. How he used to be able to move and be so quick. You look at some of the exercises that he did, and it was all majority free weight, like standing on your hands. That works every muscle. Everything is firing. -Adrian Peterson

I'm always aware of trying to put my body in different positions to test it and strengthen muscles that you don't get when you do dumbbell press or pulls or weight-type exercises. -Adrian Peterson

I try to do a variety of physical activities. I spin, take classes at Barry's Boot Camp, go to the gym, use home DVD's of ChaLEAN Extreme workouts, which I think are brilliant, and I run around after my three girls. Also, let's be honest. The amount of laundry I do is an exercise in and of itself! -Alicia Coppola

I just use it as an exercise. -Elizabeth George
