Reaching out to Hispanics is critical to our future. The fastest-growing, and most conservative, segment of the population are natural Republicans. -Ken Mehlman

I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. -Glenn Beck

For me, the most fun is change or growth. There are definitely elements of both that I like. Launching a business is kind of like a motorboat: You can go very quickly and turn fast. -Tony Hsieh

When BP was not moving fast enough on claims, we told BP to set aside $20 billion in a fund – managed by an independent third party – to help all those whose lives have been turned upside down by the spill. -Barack Obama

Now, anybody who thinks that we can move this economy forward with just a few folks at the top doing well, hoping that it's going to trickle down to working people who are running faster and faster just to keep up, you'll never see it. -Barack Obama

I believe – I'm not a political expert, but I believe there is a broad consensus, a middle ground if you will, that Democrats and Republicans, business people and workers can agree on, to get this – the economy growing faster, getting people back to work. -Austan Goolsbee

One of the misperceptions that exists in the Muslim world, which needs to be fixed, is the perception that Muslims in America are – are – are living in – in very, very, very bad circumstances. They cannot practice religion freely. It is not the truth at all. The fact is, we are practicing. We fast, we pray, we do our prayers. -Feisal Abdul Rauf

The 200 years when Britain and the US were the top two economies were an aberration and that will change. The decline of empires has happened much faster than folks think. I believe that gold will be a far better bet in 20 years than the dollar. -Tom Winnifrith

Mumbai is home, so there's no comparison. But then again, New York's a lot like Mumbai, which is why I choose to live there. It's fast, crowded (in a good way), the people are friendly and it's full of color and race, like Mumbai. Unfortunately, the traffic's also just as bad. -Lavrenti Lopes

Each building has to be beautiful, but cheap and fast, but it lasts forever. That is already an incredible battery of seemingly contradictory demands. So yes, I'm definitely perhaps contradictory person, but I operate in very contradictory times. -Rem Koolhaas

Look, I am not worried about Washington cutting too much spending too fast. I mean, the kinds of spending cuts we're talking about just right now are $100 billion out of a $3.7 trillion budget. -Paul Ryan

We had a $10 billion budget deficit when we got here in January of 2003. We cut that budget deficit; we did not raise taxes; we came back in '05, and we had an $8 billion surplus. That's how fast it can happen. -Rick Perry

I really liked 'Starter For Ten' because I grew up watching 1980s teen films like 'St. Elmo's Fire' and 'The Breakfast Club' and I've always wanted to play the underdog lead hero in a 1980s-inspired film. -James McAvoy

Being an actor is mostly about rejection and being out of work. It was a fast lesson in all of that stuff. -Rose Byrne

I can direct breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I take pride in my kitchen, but I'm not going to direct a movie. -Julia Roberts

I don't know what to do with it. I'm very fortunate to have it, and it gives you room to maneuver. But the main thing about having money is it means you don't have to worry about it. And that for me is a lovely thing. It's not for fast cars and hookers. -Daniel Radcliffe

I was quiet, a loner. I was one of those children where, if you put me in a room and gave me some crayons and a pencils, you wouldn't hear from me for nine straight hours. And I was always drawing racing cars and rockets and spaceships and planes, things that were very fast that would take me away. -Gary Oldman

Life changes fast. Life changes in the instant. You sit down to dinner and life as you know it ends. -Joan Didion

For example, if the big bang had been one-part-in-a billion more powerful, it would have rushed out too fast for the galaxies to form and for life to begin. -Robert Lanza

I think that this industry in particular is so fast-paced that you keep saying, 'I'll take vacation later.' Sometimes later never comes. I'm definitely leading a much slower life now that I'm not working every single day on a television series. -Sarah Michelle Gellar

I came home in the afternoon to sleep, and there was this e-mail from Comedy Central saying they were interested in having me be part of this new show called 'Jump Cuts'! So I called them right away, and the producer started laughing and said, 'We sent that e-mail one minute ago – you're so fast!' -Lev Yilmaz

Lifting weights is obviously important, because you want to be strong and fast and all of that, but it's not one of those things you gotta go and try to bench as much as you can every day. A bench press isn't going to help you throw a 15-yard out or a deep comeback. It's not about that. It's about training right. -Mark Sanchez

If I had been under ObamaCare, and a beaurocrat had been trying to tell me when I could get that CT scan, that would have delayed my treatment. I was able to get the treatment as fast as I could based upon my timetable, and not the government's timetable. That's what saved my life. -Herman Cain

I like books that have razor-sharp plotting that snaps and moves along. It's not about the main character being different at the end. I don't want my main character to be different in the end. I still want him committed to his ideas, to be steadfast, true and loyal. -Brad Thor

We have an incredible warrior class in this country – people in law enforcement, intelligence – and I thank God every night we have them standing fast to protect us from the tremendous amount of evil that exists in the world. -Brad Thor

Overcoming the Cold War required courage from the people of Central and Eastern Europe and what was then the German Democratic Republic, but it also required the steadfastness of Western partner over many decades when many had long lost hope of integration of the two Germanys and Europe. -Angela Merkel

I like to use 'I Can't Believe it's Not Butter' on my toast in the morning, because sometimes when I eat breakfast, I like to be incredulous. How was breakfast? Unbelievable. -Demetri Martin

Pointing is a metaphor we all know. We've done a lot of studies and tests on that, and it's much faster to do all kinds of functions, such as cutting and pasting, with a mouse, so it's not only easier to use but more efficient. -Steve Jobs

The two championship contenders, Dario Franchitti and Will Power, are starting right next to each other in the middle of the grid. Honestly, if I can be fast enough early in the race to be able to get up there and latch onto those two, it will be pure entertainment. It's going to be a pack race, and you never know how that's going to turn out. -Dan Wheldon

My own time is passing fast enough without some national game to help it along. -Andy Rooney

When I hosted the dinner I served fast food hamburgers. It had nothing to do with black, white, purple, yellow, green race. it had nothing to do with Tiger or his family or his golf game. -Fuzzy Zoeller

But it's really hard to eat good when you're traveling because you see fast food and you want to go to this restaurant and that restaurant. -Nicole Polizzi

You might expect gravity would slow it down, but it's just expanding faster and faster. -Saul Perlmutter

All these nice people saying I'm going to be world champion won't make me any faster, you have to believe it yourself. -Sebastian Vettel

The folk music definition has changed in this fast music world and musical styles are blending really quickly. -Trey Anastasio

And by the way I don't object if people want to attack me, that's their right. All I'm suggesting that it's not going to be very effective and that people are going to get sick of it very fast. And the guys who attacked each other in the debates up to now, every single one of them have lost ground by attacking. -Newt Gingrich

Life's not fair, is it? Some of us drink champagne in the fast lane, and some of us eat our sandwiches by the loose chippings on the A597. -Victoria Wood

If you want me to swim fast, you have to let me enjoy my life. -Amanda Beard

There should be more booing in shops and restaurants and places like that when when the service is bad. If you've had a poor breakfast in a hotel, you should put your knife and fork down and boo. -Jenny Eclair

There weren't a lot of career opportunities in crazy-fast hardcore punk, so you didn't have a lot of ambition, just the love and passion to play music with your friends. -Dave Grohl

I've got a fastball, change-up, forkball, curve, slider, knuckle-slider, knuckle-curve, I had about seven pitches I could have used at any time. -Chili Davis

You know what the fastest growing religion in America is? Statism. The growing reliance on government. -Marco Rubio

I'm not a fast driver. I've seen what speed can do. -Carol Alt

I was shocked cause I didn't even know that they made my jersey. I didn't know that they made it so fast, so when I saw it I was like, I had to look three times and I was like, 'Did they customize that?' And then I saw a couple of other ones and I was like, ok, they must've made them overnight or something. -Jeremy Lin

I have worked out with the Thunder, Lakers, Knicks, Grizzlies, Spurs, and a few others before the draft. I have worked out primarily against shorter and supposedly faster players in these workouts. -Jeremy Lin

I had sadness for breakfast. -Andy Milonakis

You know what I like to do? I love waking up early, making them breakfast, taking them to school, having time in the morning with them. With six kids, it's like a reality show. -Allan Houston

I'm not like a 90-mph fastball kind of guy, but I can hit 70 on radar gun. I hit 70 one time on a radar guy at one of those pitch-and-throw kind of things. I have a pretty good arm for somebody who's not a baseball player. -Ben Gibbard

Much as I loved doing 'The Big Breakfast,' it almost became automatic. I need something to keep my brain ticking over, something that I have to concentrate on. -Denise Van Outen

People always ask me how I can hit the ball so far, and I say, 'I just swing.' It's the coaches who first told me I had good bat speed. I was just swinging, and I guess it was fast. I'm pretty fast at everything. -Eric Davis

When Bryan Price taught me how to throw a changeup, he made me see myself. All my life, I've been the equivalent of a fastball pitcher – trying to use blazing speed and brute force to wow the people around me. -Eric Liu

My number one inspiration was my mother. She worked two jobs and had breakfast and dinner prepared. I essentially called my mother, The Lion. She's fierce and she's proud. I'd like to think some of that rubbed off on me. -Christopher Judge

I don't believe in writing at night because it comes too easily. When I read it in the morning it's not good. I need daylight to begin. Between nine and ten o'clock I have a long breakfast with reading and music. -Gunter Grass

To play a lawyer and have one year of law school under your belt, you sort of know what you're talking about! I'm able to memorize the legal courtroom stuff a lot faster than I would have been able to otherwise. -Jerry O'Connell

Growing up in the business you have to grow up very fast – you do have a different type of childhood, that has its benefits and it has its drawbacks. -Jodie Sweetin

People fell in love with Alex Higgins, a working-class fellow from the back streets of Belfast. That's what brought the game alive. -John Higgins

When I went public with my breast cancer diagnosis six weeks ago, the overwhelming outpouring of love, prayers and support really helped me heal faster. I want to make sure to thank everyone. -Giuliana Rancic

John Wetteland had a very good curveball. He threw it for a strike, too, in any count, any situation. But, he really didn't use it much. He didn't want to throw it. He wanted to throw fastball-slider. -Jorge Posada

I knew that it was my only shot to be taken seriously in the recording industry, because it's fast and broad. -Adam Lambert

My breakfast is very important. -Sonia Rykiel

If you only design menus that are essentially junk or fast food, the whole infrastructure supports junk. -Jamie Oliver

It's like one of those dreams you have when someone is chasing you. You're running as fast as you can, and someone's trotting behind you, just out of range, trying to grab onto you. -Michael Chang

Well, we promised our fans that we'd put out records faster, and that's what we're doing. We figured out a way to condense our cycle, so to speak, by… continuing to write, trying to keep the creative ball rolling as often as possible. -Chester Bennington

Walk into a Chase branch and we can give you so much quicker, better and faster. Like Wal-Mart. -Jamie Dimon

It's a really cool time for artists who want to strive for a little more depth in what they want to say to come forward. We live in a very fast world right now. We've got all this media and music which is so accessible to us, it's here one minute gone the next. -Kimbra

I had a mouse in my apartment and I couldn't sleep for two nights. I hate mice. They move so fast. -Matt Czuchry

Being the only man in the household with my mom definitely helped me grow up fast. -LeBron James

I learned how fast you can go from being an international hero to being a reference in a joke on a late night talk show. -Michael Phelps

I am 26 and, and I don't recover as fast as I have in the past. -Michael Phelps

When I grew up Carl Lewis was still running, Maurice Greene was running – he was that figure I see, like Michael Johnson. I really wanted to look up to the fast guys – so those two guys were some of the guys I looked up to. -Tyson Gay

I was terrified of vault, like literally I hated it. I had a fear of running as fast as I could at a solid object, which is I think a normal fear to have because nobody would really want to do that. Once I got over the fear of running into the table I just kind of relaxed and now it's like autopilot. I love it. -Alicia Sacramone

Yeah, well I think anyone who likes fast cars will love the Tesla. And it has fantastic handling by the way. I mean this car will crush a Porsche on the track, just crush it. So if you like fast cars, you'll love this car. And then oh, by the way, it happens to be electric and it's twice the efficiency of a Prius. -Elon Musk

Sometimes it's so weird just to do an interview. This morning I was back in my parents' house, with my brother, and we went for a jog together, then had breakfast as a family. And a couple of hours later I'm wearing high heels and a dress and makeup, and talking about my job. -Carey Mulligan

In Athens I was 17 and I didn't have any expectations. I was just swimming fast and racing everybody. I didn't have the joy after my races in 2007. I didn't want to go to Beijing. I had to for sponsors. -Laure Manaudou

You can wish as hard as you like but all that really matters is the shape you're in on the day of the race. I've always felt these really big races aren't necessarily won by whoever is the fastest. They're won by the athlete who is the smartest and in the best shape on the day. -Paula Radcliffe

At big championships it's not the fastest person, it's the person who gets it right on the day. -Paula Radcliffe

I honestly think if I would've tied my suit and there wouldn't have been any water rushing through it, I think I could've gone at least a second faster. -Ryan Lochte

I started eating healthier. I actually gave up fast food. I gave up candy and potato chips and everything else. I started watching what I ate. -Ryan Lochte

The fact that I am as lean as I was in 2008, I'm stronger than I was in 2008 I think I have the potential to be as fast as I was. -Libby Trickett

I generally wake up at 4:30, have breakfast No. 1, then get to the pool by 5 a.m. -Natalie Coughlin

It's kind of nice in some ways having an Olympic Trials where I finished second. You can kind of go in more under the radar facing a 2:03 guy and facing a lot of dudes who are faster than I am, whereas, before Beijing, I had one of the top 10 times in the field, or something like that. -Ryan Hall

I'll go for broke. Swim faster. It's not going to be easy – this whole thing was never going to be easy. -Ian Thorpe

Nobody believes this, but I write very fast. -Robert Caro

Things take a long time, but when it's right things move fast. -James Blunt

Once you get to know me, you would know in a second that I am an East Coast girl. You can tell because I'm not flaky, and I will tell you how it is. I also walk faster than they walk in L.A. -Tara Reid

People still take it really personally. They come up to me at breakfast places like, 'When are you growing your hair back?' -Keri Russell

It's not necessarily size that matters, it's how fast you move that implement. -Bryan Clay

I am fast and very powerful on the court, so this is what matters. -Novak Djokovic

I feel like the second child feels like they have to do everything faster. -Tori Spelling

I get tired of myself pretty fast. -Paul Giamatti

The supporting thing can be harder to pop in and out of. The hardest thing is the people who have to come in and play, say, the bartender for a day – that's a lot harder than playing the lead role. You have to pop in and get it right. It's a lot of pressure to just pop in there and fit in and find your footing really fast. -Paul Giamatti

Well, I'm a writer by nature, and I got a little bit – a little taste of a daily fast-paced writing job, writing career, and I loved it. -Victoria Gotti

The auctioneer is talking for both people, and that's the big revelation about, 'Oh, that's what they're doing.' They're just doing it very fast, so you could kind of miss on that. He's speaking for you, because people in the crowd don't have a voice, so that's what really makes it compelling. -Jack White

My friends say I have two speeds: fast and blistering. -Jodi Picoult

I really do try hard to be a good teammate. I can't run very fast, but I try to always run hard. I may strike out a lot, but I try to walk to set up the guys who are hitting after me. -Jim Thome

I have a God-given talent and I work very hard for what I do. Anybody can run fast. It's how you run fast. I pay attention to technical things now. -Maurice Greene

I know what it takes to be fast and I feel like every year I learn valuable lessons about how to be better the next time. -Danica Patrick

Although Kurt Vonnegut may not be considered a humor writer, 'Breakfast of Champions' is one of the funniest books I've ever read. -Justin Halpern

Lifestyle change and changes in diet work faster, better and more cheaply than any medication and are as effective or more effective than gastric bypass without any side effects or long-term complications. -Mark Hyman

Brand-new research suggests that the faster you take weight off, the longer you keep it off. Now that's a reason for dieters everywhere to rejoice. -Mike Moreno

Most of the film directors expect their actors to want to work fast. -Yvonne Strahovski

There are guys out there faster than me. -Carl Hagelin

I've always been attracted to cars, and driving is a completely measurable experience: if you qualify last on the grid, you're the slowest, and if you qualify first on the grid, you're the fastest. So no one can say you're slow if you're fast and no one can say you're fast if you're slow. -Eric Bana

Nobody is faster than me. -Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

I split my time between Santa Barbara and Aspen. I live on a pretty fast horse. -Kevin Costner

I don't think life is about a pace, living slow or fast. I think you just live, y'know what I mean? -Lil Wayne

When I get in the car I love my wife and kids more than anything, but I'm not thinking about that side of things. I'm thinking about the car, I'm thinking about the race and I'm thinking about how to make the car faster. -Scott Dixon

I'm not sure anybody's ready to see me in a drama. And loving movies so much, I've seen a lot of comics try to make that transition too fast, and it can be detrimental. And I don't think I've had as much success as I need in the comedy genre to open up those opportunities. -Seann William Scott

TV is just such a fast-moving medium that you do what you can do, and what you can't do, you don't worry about too much. -Shawn Ryan

I was proper, proper fast at one point, and obviously I'm not now, so I've lost certain things, but when I was that fast I didn't need to do certain other things in a game. It was such a potent weapon. -Michael Owen

It was a real hand-to-mouth existence in those early days – I'd have whatever dry cereal there was in the house for breakfast, 30 cents to spend on lunch and a hot dog for dinner. I did that for years. So there was definitely a hunger in me, of various kinds, to succeed. -Neil Diamond

My father would often work all night and sleep during the day, so for us, dinner might be pancakes, and breakfast might be beef stroganoff. -Ahmet Zappa

I was obsessed with the idea of fasting and isolation. -David Blaine

Every quarterback can throw a ball; every running back can run; every receiver is fast; but that mental toughness that you talk about translates into competitiveness. -Tom Brady

The only thing that scares me in the tech area is that it moves so fast that you have to be ready to invest in 20 things. Because if you just invest in one, next week, somebody has a better mousetrap, and you get taken to the cleaners. -Daymond John

If I see anything remotely like a telcom-run faster internet that you have to pay more to get preferential traffic on, I'm out folks. I've seen this story before, I ran an ISP back in the late 90s. -Drew Curtis

In Hollywood, you play a mom, and the next thing you know, you're on 'The Golden Girls.' They age you so fast. -Gabrielle Union

I had a history for starting something and maybe getting halfway done. Then I'd see the same thing I was doing on the bestseller list! My ideas were right, but I hadn't done them fast enough. -Lori Greiner

I've been very competitive by nature from a young age, whether it was eating a bowl of pasta faster than somebody else, or always wanting to be the first one in line. -Maria Sharapova

I'm an afternoon tea type of girl. I come from a Russian background where we love our teas. So between lunch and dinner after training I come home and I love a nice cup of tea with jam in it, as we drink it there. Black English Breakfast with raspberry jam is my favorite. -Maria Sharapova

We don't walk. We overeat because we've made it easy to overeat. We have fast-food joints on every corner. By the way, the 'we' is all of us. It's not the government. It's all of us doing this together. -Mehmet Oz

The biggest mistake people make is to try to lose too much weight too fast. -Mehmet Oz

I am always looking for that nuance, that moment of truth, and you can't really do that fast. -Paul Thomas Anderson

Defensive backs are the best players on the field. But when you get an exceptional player like a Deion Sanders or a Darrell Green – these guys are fast and they have very good technique. You have to work a little harder. -Jerry Rice

I think the thing about that was I was always willing to work; I was not the fastest or biggest player but I was determined to be the best football player I could be on the football field and I think I was able to accomplish that through hard work. -Jerry Rice

Everybody has a cartoon of themselves. Mine is: I write very fast, and I'm ruthlessly efficient with my time. -David Remnick

A.J. Liebling, one of my heroes, used to say that he could write better than anyone who wrote faster, and faster than anyone who could write better. I'm one nine-hundredth as good as Liebling, but that principle may slightly apply. -David Remnick

Grateful people may recover faster from trauma. -Deborah Norville

If I could have one prayer answered, I would pray for patience. I move so fast sometimes. I try to slow down. -Debra Winger

When fast food is not a treat but a dietary staple, the children surf the internet all day in dark corners of the room and are bombarded with latest gadgets. Things replace parental standards. -Diane Abbott

At home in L.A., Sunday is lazy. It's the wife and me lying in bed with coffee, watching 'The Soup' or something funny on TiVo. The kid will occasionally join us. Eventually, breakfast is at a place down the street called Paty's. And we always have some kind of great dinner – my wife makes a great roast beef. -Eric McCormack

It's amazing, if you know what you want to say, how fast it is to write. -Evan Davis

Everyone makes pesto in a food processor. But the texture is better with a mortar and pestle, and it's just as fast. -Mario Batali

Just because you eat doesn't mean you eat smart. It's hard to beat a $1.99 wing pack of three at a fast-food restaurant – it's so cheap – but that wing pack isn't feeding anyone, it's just pushing hunger back an hour. -Mario Batali

Most of the time, I grill over high heat. I like things to move fast. I like the sound and smell of a very hot fire. I gravitate towards dishes that you can get on and off the grill as quickly as possible. After a while, you'll know without thinking about it how hot the fire is. -Bobby Flay

For me, it's all about moderation. I don't kick things out of my diet, like carbs. But I'm not going to eat fast food. -Bobby Flay

There's so many guys skiing so fast right now that you really have to be willing to take a lot of risks if you want to give yourself a chance to win. I'm prepared to do it; it's just a matter of if I can make it work. -Bode Miller

The Royal Family are not like you and me. They live in houses so big that you can walk round all day and never need to meet your spouse. The Queen and Prince Philip have never shared a bedroom in their lives. They don't even have breakfast together. -A. N. Wilson

Track and field is the best way to reach out for kids. It doesn't matter how fast you are. You always want to beat someone. -Carl Lewis

To this day, most people think of me as the fastest human. They don't really think me as a long jumper, although that's the event I had more success in. -Carl Lewis

As an actor, I like to get a bit of momentum going with a character and kind of work a bit quicker. I mean, not crazy-fast, but, you know, five or six pages a day is a nice pace. -Colm Meaney

Late night is no different than making a film, really, except that it's faster, and if you do a crap one, you can do a better one tomorrow. Writing a novel and doing stand-up – that stuff is very similar. -Craig Ferguson

I'm a fast healer. I was on the air a week after I got shot. -Curtis Sliwa

What you wear is how you present yourself to the world, especially today when human contacts go so fast. Fashion is instant language. -Miuccia Prada

There are many ways to grow football-wise. You go slow or are pushed to go faster, otherwise you get left behind. For me, there would be trouble in stopping learning. -Wayne Rooney

The Romney candidacy is better than it was four years ago, but it's not clear that it's good. Mitt needs to get good real fast: A real speech, real plan, real responses, and real fire in the belly. -Mark Steyn

I have this pet thing about how global communications are moving so fast now, throwing information at you, making everything available to you, and yet I feel it's leaving us more and more isolated. -Mike Rutherford

Me and Don Henley are fast acquaintances now, or something. He actually got on stage and sang with me. -Mojo Nixon

It just happens I write fast and always have done. -Boris Johnson

When Edward Gibbon was writing about the fall of the Roman Empire in the late 18th century, he could argue that transportation hadn't changed since ancient times. An imperial messenger on the Roman roads could get from Rome to London even faster in A.D. 100 than in 1750. But by 1850, and even more obviously today, all of that has changed. -Walter Russell Mead

There is no doubt that, since 1977 and the launch of Apple II – the first computer it produced for the mass market – many things which used to be done on paper, or on the telephone, have been done easier and faster on a screen. -A. N. Wilson

These past years, as we have been recovering and given our city a rebirth, we have been encouraged by our faith, knowledge, and steadfast belief that we will pull through. There will be challenges and setbacks, as there have already been, but we will continue, and we the citizens of New Orleans will prevail in bringing our city back. -Cedric Richmond

And what is liberty, whose very name makes the heart beat faster and shakes the world? Is it not the union of all liberties – liberty of conscience, of education, of association, of the press, of travel, or labor, or trade? -Frederic Bastiat

Time passes faster and faster, but with every project I always want to find the next challenge and the next challenge is just as exciting as the previous one. -Alexander Wang

Nothing's faster than the Internet. -Anna Sui

Exploitation films were famous for taking an issue an exploiting it because they could move much faster than a studio could. If there was any hot topic, they would run out and make a quick movie and make a buck on it, by changing it around and using it, in some way, to give some relevance. -Robert Rodriguez

I kind of like working fast. -Robert Rodriguez

I wish I could freeze time or go back in time and watch my kids grow up all over again because it is just going by too fast. -Robert Rodriguez

I know I have to be like people expect, because people love to dream with me, they like to think that I love my boat of 50 metres, that I drink Cristal for breakfast, that I dance until five o'clock in the morning. I am not like that. -Roberto Cavalli

I learned in high school that I was going to have to outwork people. I remember running around the track, training for football, and a faster guy ran past me. I just figured, I can outlast him. If I work harder than him, I'll beat him. And to this day I overprepare. -Roger Goodell

Just because I am a chef doesn't mean I don't rely on fast recipes. Indeed, we all have moments when, pressed for time, we'll use a can of tuna and a tomato for a first course. It's a question of choosing the right recipes for the rest of the menu. -Jacques Pepin

You've got to set yourself up to be as healthy as you can. The thing we tend to do is when it gets to be a bit too hard, we actually opt out for the absolute worst option. For example, if you're in a rush in a morning and you feel like you don't have time to make breakfast, you skip it. -Curtis Stone

The great thing about this is, and not to pump my own tires, but I feel like I'm not maximized yet. I feel like I can still run faster, jump higher, which I think makes it special. Hopefully, going to London, I'll be welcomed into the decathlon community. -Ashton Eaton

Tory plans to cut 'further and faster' would wreck recovery and roll back Labour's many successes. -Alistair Darling

It's not always possible to sit down and eat at home in this day and age of fast-paced living, but if you are going to eat out, do so as a family and support all the great local places in your areas. I'll still eat at the same diner I did as a kid with my parents. -Michael Symon

Things can change so fast on the internet. -Tim Berners-Lee

When I was a kid, I thought I was the strongest man in the world. Then, the fastest runner and then the smartest person in the world. One by one my delusions got shut down. Now I just see myself as the lamest guy in the world. -Jack Black

I learn fast and I take note of what I've been told. -Jay Kay

Personal identity seems like it's just such an American archetype, from Holly Golightly re-inventing herself in 'Breakfast At Tiffany's' to Jay Gatsby in 'The Great Gatsby.' It seems like the sort of archetypal American issue. If you're given the freedom to be anything, or be anyone, what do you do with it? -Chuck Palahniuk

I'm a fairly fast, but sloppy writer, so I'm a big fan of re-writing, and re-writing again. -Jeannette Walls

There was a stage when Balanchine and I didn't talk. I was trying to develop my classical technique as opposed to the fast-track technique that he was pushing. We were very quiet with each other. But after two years he saw what I was doing and sent messages through other people that, yes, this is good. -Gelsey Kirkland

Let's keep the chemists over here and the food over here, that's my feeling. What do I know? But that is a big aspect of fast food is their ability to artificially taint the colors and the smells and stuff to stimulate appetite. -Greg Kinnear

I'm a natural piano player. So all the practicing I do at this point is in my head. If I don't play for a year, my chops aren't going to get any worse. I've spent my time playing scales, and I don't necessarily want to play any faster than I play. So everything I do at this point is more philosophical. -Harry Connick, Jr.

I think the big thing about Groupon is just people had never seen anything grow quite so fast. -Andrew Mason

I'm very fast. -Cate Blanchett

Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough. -Mark Zuckerberg

You now have six-year campaigns for the Senate – you never stop running.

And that's driven by the cost of campaigning. -Evan Bayh

When I speak at my local church, which I try to do 35 to 40 times a year, I try in every lesson to take the Old Testament text or New Testament text and apply them to what is happening to me or how that applies to the audience that I'm teaching in a modern, fast-changing, technological world. I use headlines, interfaith and that sort of thing. -Jimmy Carter

Although in skating you compete with other people, anyone who achieves a certain level of success is first and foremost competing against themselves.

I was gonna go broke if I didn't get things turned around real fast. -Ted Turner

Everything's changed. The technology is the big thing changing now, the way movies like 'Alice' or 'Avatar' are made. And technology on the other side, the audience side. Word spreads so fast now on a movie, with the Internet, and piracy is something coming down the line like in the music industry. -Richard D. Zanuck

Of course women can have it all – if they want it all. I won't hear any defeatist talk. If you just dwell on problems, you won't get anywhere fast. -Louise Mensch

I think 40 is a good age to run a country. But I've always been fast. -Henrique Capriles Radonski

I'm old school. I'm not the fastest guy or the quickest guy. -James Harden

My tides were fluctuating, too – back and forth, back and forth – sometimes so fast they seemed to be spinning. They call this 'rapid cycling.'

They call that a 'mixed state.' -Jane Pauley

When I'm not on tour, I love to have a long breakfast at home in my garden. -Andre Rieu

Why doesn't Apple stop for a year and make medical devices?

If you want to run as fast as the men, you've got to train like the men. -Florence Griffith Joyner

I mean Fundamentalist Christians. -James Purefoy
