I think L.A.'s terrific. You fly an hour and a half and you're in the mountains in three feet of powder. I also think it's a much better city if you're working as an actor. If you're not working and you don't see your dreams coming true, there can be a lot of heartache. -Scott Patterson

If I'm going to fly for more than twenty feet it's generally a good idea to get a stunt guy. -Joe Flanigan

For me, as an actress, being a dancer has helped me. I've done it with my feet bloody. -Elizabeth Berkley

I'd get kicked out of buildings all day long, people would rip up my business card in my face. It's a humbling business to be in.

When I cut the feet out of my pantyhose that one time, I saw it as my sign. I had been visualizing being self employed prior to this happening. It was my mental preparation meeting the opportunity in that moment. -Sara Blakely

Okay, I'm going to let you in on a little secret: I'm a very superstitious person. I'm walking onto the plane as we speak. I'm putting my hands on the outside of the plane and my feet are on the lip of the plane. I have to do it every time before I fly. -Jessica Chastain

This sounds really lame, but I'm pretty proud of my feet. -Torrie Wilson

I've gotten so many compliments for having nice feet. -Torrie Wilson

I started tapping and I was okay. Then after about two years my feet knew what they were doing! -Adam Garcia

It seems like the studios are either making giant blockbusters, or really super-small indies. And the mid-level films I grew up on, like 'Back to the Future' and all those John Hughes movies, the studios aren't doing. It's hard to get them on their feet. -Chris Evans

The sum total of all my stop-starts have made me less concerned about the future. I'm just aware now that I'll always land on my feet somehow. -Joel Edgerton

The big fun in 'Battleship' is that there are no current battleships in the Navy today. The battleships are about 1,000 feet long and they have huge guns. They were what you saw in WWII. The last battleship that was used was the Missouri, which is what the Japanese surrendered to. -Peter Berg

It used to happen in villages and towns in China that they would have – I guess you'd call them beauty contests – where all of the women of a particular village or town would be seated behind these screens or curtains with only their feet showing. -Lisa See

When I first saw tap dancing, I immediately got it: the righteousness of being able to make so much noise with your feet! -Shalom Harlow

It's a 12-hour cooking class for me on the set of 'Chopped.' You'd think I'd get sick of it, but it's a source of endless interest to me. The only thing I don't like about it is it's a long day and my feet hurt. Otherwise, I love it. -Ted Allen

I was one of the hardest-hitting conservatives on George W. Bush. Republicans didn't like me on George W. Bush. Republicans still don't like me on many things. If any Republican thinks I've been hard on Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich or any of these guys, wait until Mitt Romney gets into office. I'll hold his feet to the fire just as much. -Glenn Beck

My body doesn't have any rhythm, you know. I've got quite good rhythm when I'm singing but my feet are very much two left feet. -Adele

My feet are definitely more grounded than before. And I know that I'm not holding onto a dream. I'm holding onto my life. -Celine Dion

I think of guitar players in terms of doctors: you have the doctor for your heart, the cardiologist, then one that works on your feet, your leg. But I believe George Benson is the one that plays all over. To me, he would be the M.D. of them all. -B. B. King

I find it a lot healthier for me to be someplace where I can go outside in my bare feet. -James Taylor

I like to walk around with bare feet and I don't like to comb my hair. -Beyonce Knowles

To put that in perspective, that's a 5×5-foot cubicle for every man, woman and child in China. -James Chanos

Greece will not manage to get back on its feet without restructuring its debt. There is no way around it.

You have seen on TV how hard it is to go up 129,000 feet and how hard it is to come down. -Felix Baumgartner

My entire high school career – my entire school career – I've been like three feet taller than everyone in my grade. -Karlie Kloss

I have a confidence about my life that comes from standing tall on my own two feet. -Jane Fonda

I'm not getting within 20 feet of a married man ever again – not even talking to one! -Chris Evert

If the movie is good then great, but if it's not then God, I feel so bad for that person with their face fifty feet tall, all blown up. Some people would be happy with that, that as long as their face was out there they're stoked about it. I'm not like that. -Kristen Stewart

I know I will never wear sandals now anywhere. I got in a fight in the back of a grocery store when I was really young, like 14 or something. And I remember my feet were so torn up afterwards because I lost my sandals in the middle of the fight. My toenail was missing. It just sucked. -Channing Tatum

It has been difficult to hold onto many paintings but I have retained a few. Possibly the current favorite is titled 'Big Band' completed in 2005. It measures 13 feet x 9 feet. It has 18 nearly life size recognizable portraits of the biggest jazz stars that I knew and saw perform in the 1950s, '60s, '70s, '80s and includes Wynton Marsalis. -LeRoy Neiman

I'll continue on the path I've been taking, feet on the ground, describing people's lives, describing people's emotions, writing from the standpoint of the ordinary people. -Mo Yan

But the moment I've got a ball at my feet, I'm happy. -Thierry Henry

When I go through the airport and see white women walking through the airport barefooted, like athlete's feet don't exist, there's something wrong. -Dick Gregory

Money is not a motivating factor. Money doesn't thrill me or make me play better because there are benefits to being wealthy. I'm just happy with a ball at my feet. My motivation comes from playing the game I love. If I wasn't paid to be a professional footballer I would willingly play for nothing. -Lionel Messi

It is quite widely known that I like shoes. This is not something that defines me as either a woman or a politician, but it has come to define me in the eyes of the newspapers. I wore a pair of leopard-print kitten heels to a Conservative Party Conference a few years ago and the papers have continued to focus on my feet ever since. -Theresa May

It is often difficult to watch yourself onscreen, especially 60-feet high. As an actor, it is an uncomfortable experience. -Chris Hemsworth

I do think one should have clean feet. -Manolo Blahnik

I have pictures of me sitting in the racquetball court in my pajamas with an acoustic guitar, and Wolfgang is probably just two-and-a-half-feet tall. I'll never forget the day I saw his foot tapping along in beat! I knew then, I couldn't wait for the day I'd be able to make music with my son. I don't know what more I could ask for. -Eddie Van Halen

As the only girl growing up among three brothers, I was always afraid of being excluded. If there was a game to be played, a sport to be learned, a competition to join, I was on my feet and ready. I didn't spend much time alone for fear that I'd miss out. -Elisabeth Shue

There's no reason to keep a piece of furniture in your house that is so sacred and rare that you can't put your feet up on it and a dog can't jump up on it. Likewise, a book that sits on a shelf like a piece of porcelain, only to be admired, never to be read again, is a dead book. -Elizabeth Gilbert

I have huge hands and feet. I'm 5'6" and wear a size 10 shoe. -Ellen Barkin

When I'm running fast, I don't feel anything, it's effortless, it's like my feet don't even touch the ground, it's like I'm flying. -Evelyn Ashford

Tap dancing is all about the feet; you put your head down and don't really engage with anything but the rhythm in your head. -Jamie Bell

And I was the only black kid in my school for almost all of my childhood, until I was a teenager. So imagine, if you will, being 6 feet tall by third grade, so essentially being a living maypole. -Aisha Tyler

I run Willow Management, which is the biggest agency for other short actors. We look after performers who are either under five feet and over seven feet tall. -Warwick Davis

I'm a great swimmer, probably due to the size of my feet. -Cat Deeley

Here's another secret – I have really big feet. I'm a size ten, so every opportunity I get I buy myself shoes. -Freida Pinto

I think any girl would throw me under a bus to be within five feet of Robert Pattinson. I actually think he's an attractive guy. And I watched most of 'Twilight,' and I think he was really intriguing. -Paul Wesley

Everyone expects me to be 9 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds when they meet me. -Khloe Kardashian

I have the same pet peeve as Anderson Cooper, which is bare feet in public. I hate it. It so grosses me out, especially in New York. Oh my God, New York in the summer with people and their feet in their sandals and their flip-flops, like get it away! -Busy Philipps

I always wanted to be a zookeeper when I was growing up, and I've wound up a zookeeper! I've been working with the Los Angeles Zoo for 45 years! I'm the luckiest old broad on two feet because my life is divided absolutely in half – half animals and half show business. You can't ask for better than two things you love the most. -Betty White

I'm the luckiest broad on two feet, I'll tell you that. They say once a woman passes 40 she doesn't get any good parts, so I'm blessed. -Betty White

I am the luckiest old broad on two feet if the truth were known. It's – but it all goes back to 'Mary Tyler Moore,' 'Golden Girls,' all those – actors love to take the credit. We couldn't do it without the writers. -Betty White

Russell James asked me to shoot underwater. He tied my feet under the water. I don't know how many feet – maybe five, six meters. He tied me underwater and I had no air. Somebody had a tube, and they were giving me some oxygen, but I couldn't really see anything. Everything was blurry. I'm waiting for the oxygen – that was the craziest thing. -Alessandra Ambrosio

I have always loved fashion because it's a great way to express your mood. And I'm definitely a shoe lover. The right pair of shoes can change the feel of an outfit, and even change how a woman feels about herself. A woman can wear confidence on her feet with a high stiletto, or slip into weekend comfort with a soft ballet flat. -Fergie

Any middle-aged woman knows that our feet are not for the faint of heart, especially in midwinter. I wear clogs, so it's actually like my feet are wooden now. -Lisa Scottoline

I've worn stilettos since I was 12, so I have abused my feet to the point of no return. -Cobie Smulders

I never really drank coffee in college, but now I'm on my feet all day and out all night and can't believe it hasn't always been in my life. When morning comes I crave it. -Gail Simmons

Terrorists are not 100 feet tall. Nor do they deserve the abject fear they seek to instill. -John O. Brennan

Just about every children's book in my local bookstore has an animal for its hero. But then, only a few feet away in the cookbook section, just about every cookbook includes recipes for cooking animals. Is there a more illuminating illustration of our paradoxical relationship with the nonhuman world? -Jonathan Safran Foer

Well, there's nothing better than putting your feet up on a Sunday afternoon and grabbing a good book. -Chris Klein

My feet always danced to Irish traditional music, but I was very glad to get out of the North of Ireland in the mid-Seventies when it was really closed and tight and relentlessly unforgiving. -Ciaran Hinds

My favorite toy growing up was Polly Pocket. But one gift that I wanted though never received for Christmas was a pair of trampoline moon shoes. You strap them to your feet and they have springs on them, and you can just jump around! -Lucy Hale

It's always mildly unnerving when you're hanging upside down 70 feet in the air. -Reeve Carney

In L.A. summer's blistering heat, I've seen many girls wearing short skirts with Ugg boots. I like the boots, and the short skirts, but I've always wondered, don't their feet get hot? -Jackson Rathbone

'Cliffhanger' got me in the best shape of my life, working at 10,000 feet up in the mountains. And everybody was great. I lived in Italy for seven months doing that movie. It was a great vacation. -Michael Rooker

My feet are like something from another age – prehistoric and troll-like. I keep expecting them to talk, they have that much character. -Sally Hawkins

We have enough to worry about with what's happening in our nation to worry about what's happening in California. Keep your feet grounded in your own backyard and together we're going to build communities that work. -Sher Valenzuela

I have gotten into a lot of trouble in my life for being brutally honest. Sometimes I put both my feet in my mouth. But like Elton John, I'm still standing. -Cristina Saralegui

I really respond to putting myself out of my own depth and finding my feet. -Bonnie Wright

When I was in fourth grade, a novelist came to talk to my English class. She told us that being an author meant sitting at the kitchen table in pajamas, drinking tea with the dogs at your feet. -J. Courtney Sullivan

I've spent a lot of my teenage years working on sets. I've missed out on more than just playing rugby, but I think I've managed to keep my feet on the ground and keep my friends around me. -Douglas Booth

You cry and you scream and you stomp your feet and you shout. You say, 'You know what? I'm giving up, I don't care.' And then you go to bed and you wake up and it's a brand new day, and you pick yourself back up again. -Nicole Scherzinger

Hitchcock is a big ask. I am playing someone significantly older than me and someone significantly bigger than me. The stuff I find very interesting is why certain physical things have come about. How can he be light on his feet when he is so big? How can his weight vary so much? Where does this rather beautiful voice come from? -Toby Jones

Sometimes these challenges naturally select more chefs that can think on their feet very quickly. There are chefs I know who won't put things on the menu unless they've tried it four or five times. So you just naturally select a certain kind of chef, people who maybe don't win a bunch of challenges but they hang around. -Tom Colicchio

I think commercials are something that everyone does to get out there and get a little bit of exposure, get their feet wet, and also pay the bills. So anytime you can be a part of a wonderful, fun commercial, that's just a bonus. -Isaiah Mustafa

I hate sitting around a table and talking about what a play might mean. I'm the person who's always like, 'Can we get up on our feet and just do it?' -Norbert Leo Butz

Washington, D.C. is full of think tanks, theoreticians and advocacy groups. Governors are the ones whose feet are on the ground. -Phil Bredesen

I like my home to be somewhere where my friends can feel like they can put their feet up on the couch and for it to feel like really easy living. I really love to have my friends over, cook dinner for them, catch up, and spend quality time with quality people in my life. -Stacy Keibler

This is a country for, of, and by the people not for, of, and by the government. If we turn it over to them we cannot complain about what they're doing because this is a natural course of men and we have to hold their feet to the fire. -Ben Carson

Sometimes there are paparazzi that take photos and you don't know they're there. So you're laughing, kicking up your heels and doing silly things. You don't even realize it. And then there's other times where they're two feet away from your face and it's invasive and it feels threatening, so you don't want to be smiling. -Dianna Agron

When I planned my wedding the first time, my ex-husband and I, we were both struggling comics. I had a TV show that had gotten cancelled. Basically, I rented a wedding gown; the reception hall smelled like feet. -Sherri Shepherd

I never expected to get the Tom Jones treatment and it amazes me that I do. Strangely it's women who throw their underwear at me when I'm performing live. My male fans tend to be quite shy. My female fans are wild. I never know what to do with all the lingerie that lands at my feet. Maybe I should open a shop. -Ellie Goulding

Are you motivated? Are you coherent? Is your intention aligned? Are your feet, tongue, heart and wallet congruent? That intention shines through. -Peter Guber

People love to be swept off their feet, to go into an environment where they've never been, to experience things they only dream about. And filmmaking offers that potential. -Peter Guber

Some people are like cats – if they're dropped upside down, they land on their feet. I get a little irritated about stories like that. -Peter Segal

Tackling, and that ability to stay on your feet and pressurise a player, is a dying art. -Peter Storey

Life is a glass of wine and having your feet washed – it's a biblical event, might I add. This is part of mankind's story. You are always looking for a moment to take a break. -Mick Fleetwood

Air travel is the safest form of travel aside from walking; even then, the chances of being hit by a public bus at 30,000 feet are remarkably slim. I also have no problem with confined spaces. Or heights. What I am afraid of is speed. -Sloane Crosley

When I first got back from the war, I said, 'I'm gonna write the Great American Novel about the Vietnam War.' So I sat down and wrote 1,700 pages of sheer psychotherapy drivel. It was first person, and there would be pages about wet socks and cold feet. -Karl Marlantes

I used to sleep with the phone right by my pillow but I'm getting better. Now it sits on the table a few feet away. -Alex Guarnaschelli

Cooks build muscles; we can stand all day long on our feet and not feel the pain. -Eric Ripert

I was blessed, because I come from a family where they knock you down before you float away. I have a lot of brothers who just make sure we have our feet on the ground, and my mom is a rock star. She is an amazing mother. -Kellan Lutz

Even the classics that we read to our young children are full of wolves' fangs and burning ovens and bloody feet and ice shards piercing hearts. Even the New Testament climaxes with an act of unspeakable torture. Might as well just read to our kids from the Amnesty Annual Report and be done with it. -Geraldine Brooks

The mind and the body are inextricably entwined, and rarely are their inseparability clearer than when we're under some kind of mental pressure. The moment we start trying to learn a new skill, make a decision or otherwise think on our feet, our nervous system reacts – with accelerated pulse rate, increased respiration, even sweating. -Jeffrey Kluger

If a chick wants to know who makes my shoes, she's got to take them off my feet and look inside. -ASAP Rocky

But I'm not the girl who changes into flats because my feet are tired at the end of the night. I go the distance. I go all the way. -Dita Von Teese

I always have this image of a woman running across a desert carrying children, trying to find water and food, not knowing when they'll get that. And her feet are slashed up from the dry, hard earth… Even when I'm uncomfortable, sometimes in pain, or just cold… I think, 'Thank God for what I've got.' -Sue Townsend

I don't know why the universe is so determined to keep my feet on the ground. -Rufus Sewell

I am my parents' daughter, and I always want to be. But I first wanted to make sure that I was standing on my own two feet. -Lily Rabe

You know, film is the ultimate goal in an actor's career. I mean, I still love TV. I have my feet firmly stamped in it. But my opportunities have been bigger and better. -Idris Elba

Be willing to step outside your comfort zone once in a while; take the risks in life that seem worth taking. The ride might not be as predictable if you'd just planted your feet and stayed put, but it will be a heck of a lot more interesting. -Edward Whitacre, Jr.

I'm under five feet; I'm very small, 4'11 1/2. -Jacki Weaver

I'm really tall – almost six feet – and my features tend to be extreme, especially on TV. -Missi Pyle

I live in a rural residential area. It's a great place for a walk. I'm at my happiest when I'm listening to my iPod while walking around where my feet take me. -Park Chan-wook

My feeling is that maintaining financial independence is also a healthy way to keep my feet on the ground. -Valerie Trierweiler

My father works for Xerox and fixes those gigantic copy machines that are about 10 feet wide. -Michael Cera

I don't want to get burned when I'm cooking. To avoid getting hit when pan-frying, I stand far away and use chopsticks that are almost two feet long. I learned it from my mom, who does the same thing. -Eddie Huang

There are a lot of similarities between dancing and wrestling. The costumes are the same, the spandex and all that, but you have to be light on your feet to do both, and you have to remember choreography. -Chris Jericho

After college, I went into the NBC Page Program. It's one of those great programs that allows kids to get their feet wet in every area of the business. -Lara Spencer

Among us, who is above must be in service of the others. This doesn't mean we have to wash each other's feet every day, but we must help one another. -Pope Francis

I wish I could avoid the people who have threatened me. My favorite threat is that I will be thrown in the River Miljacka, which is at most knee-deep, with my feet bound in cement. -Aleksandar Hemon

I have the idea that running shoes are based on a kind of cult idea – that our feet are flawed and we need shoes to correct those flaws. The shoe companies are in the business of selling shoes. But there's no evidence from running shoe manufacturers that they're right. There's no scientific data that running shoes reduce injury. -Christopher McDougall

I never wanted fame, of all things, and I'm not just being cheeky. There are benefits that come with being famous, but there's also confusion. It's important to make sure your feet stay on the ground. -Grace Park

I was told by my agent that a number of big stars won't work with anyone two inches taller than them and most of them are under six feet, so you have to be prepared to have trouble. -James Cromwell

The stage and the live crowd taught me to think on my feet, to improvise. -Jason McCoy

You know, I agree with President Obama that in Iraq and Afghanistan, at some point in time, we have to take the training wheels off and we have to allow those countries to stand on their own two feet. -Josh Mandel

My mother played the piano and my father the violin, I can remember my dad teaching me how to waltz; I had my feet on his, my mother playing the piano, and my husband will tell you the lessons weren't very successful. -Quentin Bryce

Some days we may be more acutely conscious of our sinfulness and hence more aware of our need of His grace, but there is never a day when we can stand before Him on our own two feet of performance, when we are worthy enough to deserve His blessing. -Jerry Bridges

I once fell 20 feet from a tree, was knocked unconscious, and when I picked myself up and straggled home, my parents thought I was making it up. However, when my brother and I fabricated a story about an encounter with a bear, they believed that! So maybe I learned very early on that fiction was more interesting to listeners! -Sharon Creech

I write almost entirely in bed or on a couch with my feet up on the coffee table. I feel most creative when I'm looking out the window, and my bed and couch have nice views of the New York skyline. -Gary Shteyngart

You can't work in a steel mill and think small. Giant converters hundreds of feet high. Every night, the sky looked enormous. It was a torrent of flames – of fire. The place that Pittsburgh used to be had such scale. -Jack Gilbert

Almost everyone wears rubber on their feet these days, but there was a time when it was considered cheap. Luxury shoes had leather soles, which were rigid and heavy. -Diego Della Valle

We must never lose sight of the fact that shoes go on the feet, and if people can't walk in them, they are worthless. Fashion designers who are not specialists need the help of technical people. We help decide the collections together. -Diego Della Valle

Childhood was terrifying for me. A kid has no control. You're three feet tall, flat broke, unemployed, and illiterate. Terror snaps you awake. You pay keen attention. People can just pick you up and move you and put you down. -Mary Karr

High heels weren't always a girl thing. In the fifteen-hundreds, the riding shoes of French noblemen were fitted with raised heels so that their feet stayed put in the stirrups. Over the next few decades, heels inched higher on dress shoes, particularly among men of privilege. -Patricia Marx

It's through working with a lot of first-time directors that I realized that people learn on their feet. Everybody works on something for a different reason. Everybody has got something new to learn on these sets, and you don't have to know everything, the second you start. -Jess Weixler

We have seen the big loan servicers drag their feet in the Obama administration's well-intentioned mortgage modification program. -Sheldon Whitehouse

Five states – Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Illinois and North Carolina – have been identified by the EPA as contributing significantly to Rhode Island pollution. As of 2010, 284 tall smokestacks – stacks over 500 feet – were operating in the United States: needles injecting poison into the atmosphere. -Sheldon Whitehouse

I consciously memorized the speed at which every pitcher in the league threw his fastball, curve, and slider. Then, I'd pick up the speed of the ball in the first 30 feet of its flight and knew how it would move once it has crossed the plate. -Stan Musial

Growing up in Harlem, I had the chance to practice with a Negro League team. At fifteen, I was over six feet tall and a fair athlete, but my skills didn't come close to some of the players I saw. -Walter Dean Myers

Few parents are aware of the difficulties that beset the minds of the little philosophers and theologians who sit upon their knees or play at their feet; and many a parent could not comprehend the disturbance, if he were aware of it. -Lucy Larcom

Johnny Depp gave me the best advice. He said, 'Keep your feet on the ground. Stay grounded. Remember where you came from.' -Sam Claflin

It seems to me that Sotheby's is very much like the British monarchy: an old and apparently very venerable institution which is in fact very nimble on its feet, an institution invested with a great deal more self-interest than the public image would suggest. -Robert Lacey

Friends are really important, especially when you've had the successes that I've had. I've gone really far in my career, so they're the ones that keep you humble, keep your feet on the ground. -Ferran Adria

Intelligent design, unlike creationism, is a science in its own right and can stand on its own feet. -William A. Dembski

I'm going to be doing solo stuff. The idea is to do 'small' and 'off my beaten path,' or go back to an old, beaten path – do some smaller things that I haven't done in 15 or 20 years. Just to sort of get my feet wet, because I haven't done my own material for a couple of years – I've been doing a lot of other things. -Patty Griffin

That's the thing about zombies. They don't adapt and they don't think. Literally, you could have a zombie on one side of a chain link fence and you could be on the other side and they could be trying to get to you and six feet down could be an open door and they will not go through that door in the fence. That's why they're so scary. -Max Brooks

Any survival guide will tell you, don't buy a pair of combat boots before any disaster. They'll tear your feet up. Or water – don't bring water with you because it'll tire you out and you'll lose too much fluid. Bring a water pump. -Max Brooks

I have that memory of dancing on my father's feet to all the music my parents used to listen to. -Deborah Kass

The ideal gymnast would be between 4 feet 7 and 5-2. I wouldn't be able to pinpoint an ideal height, however. It would be foolish to say that a gymnast above 5-2 could not be great. -Bela Karolyi

I will lead my people by the hand along the road until their feet are sure and they know the way. Then they may choose for themselves and rule themselves. Then my work will be done. -Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Look at the bark of a redwood, and you see moss. If you peer beneath the bits and pieces of the moss, you'll see toads, small insects, a whole host of life that prospers in that miniature environment. A lumberman will look at a forest and see so many board feet of lumber. I see a living city. -Sylvia Earle

If cattle and horses, or lions, had hands, or were able to draw with their feet and produce the works which men do, horses would draw the forms of gods like horses, and cattle like cattle, and they would make the gods' bodies the same shape as their own. -Xenophanes

Now, if you notice how the swan, putting its neck down into the deep water, brings up food for itself from below, then you will discover the wisdom of the Creator, in that He gave it a neck longer than its feet for this reason, that it might, as if lowering a sort of fishing line, procure the food hidden in the deep water. -Saint Basil

My torso is short, but my arms are really long and gangly and my legs and my neck, and my feet and hands are really long, and I look like a duck. -Cyndi Lauper

Verbally, I'm quite fast on my feet. I could embarrass or anger most people if I wanted to. -Andrew Marr

My father would invite me sweetly to come and sit on a stool at his feet, and, as I let myself trustingly down, he would gently kick the seat from under me – and laugh. -Lincoln Steffens

We are Jesus Christ's; we belong to him. But even more, we are increasingly him. He moves in and commandeers our hands and feet, requisitions our minds and tongues. We sense his rearranging: debris into the divine, pig's ear into silk purse. He repurposes bad decisions and squalid choices. Little by little, a new image emerges. -Max Lucado

I like the piano – I'm always about 15 feet away from a piano. -Brian Wilson

They do say, the smaller the feet, the better the dancer. -Bruce Forsyth

I never went to acting school, so improv was my training. Just being quick on your feet helps in everyday life. -Ben Schwartz

I'd say my best memory was climbing Mt. Fuji, and the worst memory was… trying to fit my feet into the free giveaway slippers at Japanese schools. -Bruce Feiler

The whole idea of a democracy is that we ourselves, the people, are supposed to make a path of our politics, and it is we who with our feet and our vote and our labors and our vigilance are supposed to shape our country. -Eugene Jarecki

I don't think you should go into politics until you can stand on your own two feet economically, if possible, and you know enough about the world. -Ross Kemp

Just ask anybody who is getting old – everything starts hurting. For me, it's my shoulders, thumbs, knees and feet. -Meat Loaf

I'm learning kite surfing. It's a little surfboard you have on your feet with straps, and you have a big kite like a power glider in the air that pulls you. You don't need waves to move, and it makes a big spray of water as you go. -Bertrand Piccard

I don't want to sound like a Hallmark card, but to be able to wake up each day with food and shelter, that alone is good. Forget aging and the fact that my butt is becoming a little more familiar with my knees than my tailbone. If you are six feet above ground it's a good day. So, give me more! -Faith Hill

Conventional turbines only work up to 200 feet, but capturing a small fraction of the global wind energy at higher altitudes could be sufficient to supply the current energy needs of the globe. -Saul Griffith

I find that if I'm watching somebody upon television or in a movie that is on a window ledge or in some high precarious position my hand starts sweating and I get that crawling feeling in the soles of my feet. -Alan Moore

When you freefall for 7,000 feet it doesn't feel like you're falling: it feels like you're floating, a bit like scuba diving. -Benedict Cumberbatch

When I was in junior high, a foreign-history teacher started a theater class. So I got my feet wet there and through high school, so I was very fascinated with acting as a means of expression. -Dwight Yoakam

I'm used to people being a mile away. That suits me. It's more nerve-wracking playing in front of people who are two feet away from me. -Noel Gallagher

A lot of people assume that women of a certain age who are not unattractive have no excuse for not having a perfect life. But you can have emotional baggage that is dragging you down like cement blocks tied to your feet. -Olivia Wilde

The golden rule of drums is hands clapping and feet tapping, and when you are in and out of consciousness, you can't do that to best of your ability. -Steven Adler

I was the class podiatrist. I never made it to class clown. I wasn't funny enough. I would examine feet and prescribe and ointment. It was a sad childhood. -Gilbert Gottfried

I'm happy to report you still get nothing you don't need at Motel 6, and, therefore, you don't have to pay for it. I don't need valet parking. If I can drive the old crate 300 miles to the hotel all by myself, I can certainly handle the last nine feet to the parking space. -Tom Bodett

It's taken me time to find my feet in L.A. -Caitlin Stasey

I like my feet. I have a tattoo on my foot with my last name. They're dancer feet. They're pretty. My toes are proportioned nicely. And they're strong – I can pinch people with my toes. -Caity Lotz

I daily disconnect and read a good book or listen to a good sermon or call a friend or my mom and talk on the phone with my feet up. I also take baths with bath salts that I make myself. -Kim Alexis

Funnily enough, the most difficult style to do is the plain pump because it needs to look good on a variety of feet. I compare it to having a good bone structure. Make-up will make you look good, but it helps if you have a good skeleton to begin with. -Christian Louboutin

The thing I always try to remember is that feet are attached to the leg, and that you must prolong the silhouette. The shoe elongates the leg and does it discreetly. The goal is to get people to look at a woman's legs. It's all about the leg. No, it's not about the leg. It's about the woman. -Christian Louboutin

The highest heels I do are six-inch heels – but mostly only dancers can wear them, since they are used to being on point in ballet shoes. Their feet are arched. -Christian Louboutin

I don't mind doing scripted material. It's actually kind of a relief, because improvising is a little bit like screenwriting on your feet. -John C. Reilly

I grew up with a pretty tough mom. She was a self-appointed neighborhood watchdog, and if she saw that any of the local boys were up to no good, she would scold them on the spot. Although she is only 5 feet 2, she was famous in our neighborhood for intimidating men three times her size and getting them to do the right thing. -Hanna Rosin

Men and women are like two feet; they can help each other get ahead. -Helen Fisher

The only way to make something cheaply today is to have it mass-produced. For example, you wear the same shoes as everyone else. If you had a fabber, you could custom-make shoes that perfectly fit your feet. Three-dimensional printing will help us move away from the mass consumption that is so deeply ingrained in our culture. -Hod Lipson

The Chinese use every spare bit of an animal: cow lungs, pig ears, chicken feet, duck blood. -Jennifer Lee

I'd been told that when you first put your feet on African ground, you'll be hit by a feeling of overwhelming understanding, like you've returned home and suddenly belong. Quite frankly, I didn't feel that. -Jill Scott

I love to see a woman in high-heeled shoes. There's something about the curve of the feet up the leg to the butt that's really, really wonderful, and the right pair of shoes can give you the right silhouette. -Tyler Perry

I am not the paraplegic seated permanently in his chair or the able-bodied person on her feet. Identity for a hemiplegic is a shifty thing. -Joshua Prager

The truly humble feel the ground beneath their feet every day and do not only become aware of it when held aloft or pushed down to their knees. -Julian Baggini

Doing voiceovers is so great because even though many people would think it's just your voice, you really do use all your physicality. I've done everything from playing a butterfly to Alice in Wonderland when she's 10 feet tall, so it allows you to be an actor and build new characters. -Ashley Bell

When there's not ten feet of snow on the ground, I ride my bike down the streets of New York, and I literally hear two things out of car windows as cabs pass by me: They either yell, 'Hey, dummy,' or 'Hey, Mayhem.' -Dean Winters

If most people were to take a moment to picture in their minds the average, not-for-profit, save-the-world girl, they… well, they probably wouldn't, because who wants to think about hemp, hairy legs, and Birkenstocks? But I'd rather eat a pair of Birkenstocks than put them on my feet, and I love, love, love my Christian Louboutins. -Nancy Lublin

I'm not sure that the problem of violence in society can be put at the feet of the entertainment industry. -Ivana Milicevic

When's the last time you really thought about what you eat, how much you move throughout the day, whether or not you feel fantastic when you get up in the morning, and which shoes keep your feet comfortable? -David Agus

I enjoy the process of composing music. The first time I hear a song, it has to bring a smile to my lips. You have to tap your feet and be able to sing the song. -Salman Khan

I've reached a point where I'm comfortable in my own skin, and I do what I need to do, to feel good, but I'm built the way I am. The dancer's feet, the bruises on my legs, they're not going to go away. I think real girls have bruises. Tough chicks get bruised. They get dirty. And they have fun. -Nina Dobrev

In professional wrestling, I think that they want you to be bigger than life. It's almost like an over-acting type thing – whereas on the big screen, you're 35 feet and they've got a close-up of you to put it on the screen in the movie house. At 35 feet, it's more subtlety than the overboard drama that we do in pro wrestling. -Kevin Nash

I've always been brought up to stand on my own two feet and not rely too heavily on everyone else around me. -Emilia Fox

I live in Hollywood. Go three feet and you will run into someone more cut and better looking than me. For me, working out is more about keeping my temperament great. Jujitsu and lifting keep me very even. -Jonathan Lipnicki

Funnily enough, the most difficult style to do is the plain pump because it needs to look good on a variety of feet. -Christian Louboutin

I got my feet wet in a couple of shows. I did a cameo on my favorite show, 'The Vampire Diaries.' And I guest starred on a show called 'Kickin' It' on Disney. -Gabby Douglas

Runners, by nature, are intentional people and normally pretty light on our feet. -Kristin Armstrong

The way I look at it, a footballer wouldn't play in flip-flops or dip their feet in acid and then expect to get to David Beckham's level. My voice is my living, so I'll be looking after it. -Jessie J

Dancing in high heels is kind of tough. I learn the dances without the heels, and then we add them. We just practice, and I get used to it. My feet hurt really badly at the end of the shows, but it's fun. While it's happening it's fun. I feel tall. -Ariana Grande

If I buy a Fiat Uno, I'll read that, for a man like me, a Ferrari was more suitable. If instead I buy a Ferrari, they'll write that I should have kept my feet on the ground and bought a Fiat. If I smile, I'm not serious. If I don't smile, I'm a rich sulker that doesn't enjoy having the most beautiful job in the world. -Mario Balotelli

I've trained primarily in Meisner Technique, and I've done a little bit of Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade just to get my feet wet in the improv world because I think that's really important. But most of the teachers I've worked with, I've gotten, like, references through agents or managers, and they're sort of independent. -Scottie Thompson

There are moments when you're stepping out of a really nice car on to a red carpet, and you feel inside like, 'This is quite nice,' but I'm never whisked off my feet. -Stephen Graham

Kenya, being a third world country, from a young age your eyes are open to the real world. I'd like to think growing up there taught me to stand on my own two feet, make my own decisions about what I wanted to be. -Chris Froome

I'm a very emotional writer. I always need to have a boyfriend. I always need to have some food. I always need to have a heater at my feet, and I drink this thing called Cool Brew, which I found in Louisiana. It's like condensed coffee. -Ester Dean

I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I'm like, 'My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don't have it. I just want to chill.' We all have self-doubt. You don't deny it, but you also don't capitulate to it. You embrace it. -Kobe Bryant

When I was a student in the '60s, I dreamt of making a house 7 feet by 7 feet, as a dream of freedom, of self-moderation. -Renzo Piano

I began dancing when I was 7 years old. I was told that I had the perfect ballet dancer's body and had these crazy high arches in my feet that resulted in an amazing point. Ballet was very disciplined and, frankly, a little boring, so I eventually transitioned to gymnastics. I loved that, although I never reached a competitive level. -Catherine Mary Stewart

In a lot of the really impoverished areas of Johannesburg you see these packets of cheesy puffs which are like 6 feet long and the width of a basketball, and they're transparent and they have like 10,000 cheesy puffs in them, and you can buy that for like 50 cents. It's kind of a weird treat that you'd see people having in the townships. -Neill Blomkamp

You can have a knack for dancing, but you still have to practice till your feet are bleeding to be worthy of being in front of an audience. -Bronson Pinchot

I wasn't a pretty girl. I was six feet tall at 15, you know. -Maya Angelou

America's leaders need to put their feet in the shoes of working Americans. -Howard Schultz

I am completely fascinated by the differences and comparisons between real life and fairy tales because we're raised as little girls to think that we're a princess and that Prince Charming is going to sweep us off our feet. -Taylor Swift

To wear dreams on one's feet is to begin to give a reality to one's dreams. -Roger Vivier

For my very first movie, 'Roger and Me,' I made it as part of my deal with Warner Brothers that the four people that were evicted in that film, that Warner Brothers would house – would pay their mortgage or their rent for the next two years to give them a chance to get on their feet. -Michael Moore

I have a rule: I want the pilot flying me up in the air at 30,000 feet to make more than a guy working at Taco Bell. -Michael Moore

I have a photograph at home of Fred Astaire from the knees down with his feet crossed. It's kind of inspiring because it reminds me his feet were bleeding at the end of rehearsals. Yet when you watch him, all you see is freedom. It's a reminder of what the job is about in general, not just being in musicals. -Alan Rickman

Americans are so spoiled. They think you always have to have a car, whereas I got away on my own two feet. -Lee Harvey Oswald

For some reason, men in politics seem to have a bunch of charisma, and women drop around their feet. I haven't noticed that so much for me and men. -Lara Giddings

I feel confident writing on my feet with improv, but it's different when you're sitting down and writing it out. -Amy Sedaris

I believe to go along to get along is unpatriotic. I believe that agreeing with your government on everything they do is unpatriotic. I believe a patriot stands up and holds your government's feet to the fire. Because if you do that, you will get good government. -Jesse Ventura

I've jumped out of an airplane 34 times. I've dove 212 feet under water. I've done a lot of things that defied death. -Jesse Ventura

We women continue to swallow this line that it's unladylike or even proof of being a lesbian if you wear flat shoes like Doc Martens. I'm prepared to put up with that accusation, because at least my feet aren't killing me and I don't look like a bandy ostrich. -Jo Brand

If we are busy in a hundred good things – even great things, gospel things, glorious things – but don't sit at the feet of Jesus, we are busy in the wrong ways. -Kevin DeYoung

When you see grown men near to tears because they've missed hitting a little white ball into a hole from three feet, it makes you laugh. -Bill Murray

If someone's got a fear of heights, they'd probably say, well, hanging off a helicopter at 3,000 feet above downtown L.A. would be the scariest. For me, that's a day's work, something I was very happy to do. -Jason Statham

My favorite body part? My feet. They're not pretty, but they get me where I want to go. -Patricia Heaton

Boys are easy. I mean, there are just a lot of bruises when they're young. With boys, you get a lot of accidental jabs in the eye and stepping on your feet, and those tantrums they cause when they don't want to leave the toy store. -Jodie Foster

I have no intention of flattering people. I like wrinkles and crow's feet and flaws, and somebody should know, if I'm going to photograph them, that's going to show up, you know? -Chuck Close

If you have a pair of shoes that hurt, don't wear them. The ugliest thing that I think I've seen is a woman walk like her feet hurt. It's awful, so make sure your shoes fit. -Kelly Rowland

I wanted to write something in a voice that was unique to who I was. And I wanted something that was accessible to the person who works at Dunkin Donuts or who drives a bus, someone who comes home with their feet hurting like my father, someone who's busy and has too many children, like my mother. -Sandra Cisneros

I'm 5-feet-9, I have a deep voice, and I have a way with a line. What can I do about it? I can't stay home waiting for something different. I think it's a total waste of energy worrying about typecasting. -Bea Arthur

The fact is that the British Museum had a complete specimen of a dodo in their collection up until the 18th century – it was actually mummified, skin and all – but in a fit of space-saving zeal, they actually cut off the head and they cut off the feet and they burned the rest in a bonfire. -Adam Savage

Heavenly Father has assigned us to a great variety of stations to strengthen and, when needed, to lead travelers to safety. Our most important and powerful assignments are in the family. They are important because the family has the opportunity at the start of a child's life to put feet firmly on the path home. -Henry B. Eyring

If I'm taking a picture of Brancusi's grave, I know that there's something of him, of his mortal remains, beneath my feet, and there's something beautiful about that. -Patti Smith

My life has been a roller coaster ride, but somehow I've always been able to land on my feet and still play the guitar. -Ace Frehley

I don't think of myself as a metafictional writer at all. I think of myself as a classic writer, a realist writer, who tends to have flights of fancy at times, but nevertheless, my feet are mostly on the ground. -Paul Auster

I'm quite British; I've got big, flat feet, and I can't wear heels. I've got very, very pale Celtic skin, so my legs are always a frightening blue color. So when you take out clothes that reveal your legs, shoes that have any kind of heel, no shop will actually take my money. -Caitlin Moran

Most ankle strap shoes are seriously unattractive, cutting the line of the leg as well as cutting off the circulation! Try dancing in them – your feet will look like a pair of overdone hotdogs afterwards. -Joan Collins

I was a floor model at I. Magnin. I'm 5 feet 7, but my legs weren't long enough to be a big-time model. From the knees up, everything is long, but from ankle to knee, if I was in proportion, I'd be 5 feet 9. -Grace Slick

I'm a good example of someone who can come to Hollywood and keep their feet on the ground with all the rock stars, all the drama that goes with being here. It's still important to pump your own gas and to be able to vacuum. -Pamela Anderson

I was a wild kid. I was left to climb trees. And you know those railways logs, they piled them up, six feet apart, and I'd jump from one to the other. Without a safety net! I was an incredible tomboy. -Shirley Bassey

When I am in New York, you know, my studio is big, about 20,000 to 25,000 square feet, and I have painting rooms and rooms I do etching in, rooms I do lithographs. -Peter Max

We never think that our mothers will die. It was like suddenly an abyss opened at my feet – I was standing on nothing. It was the strangest thing. Her passing away ripped the solidity out of the world. -Ben Okri

During my days of deepest grief, in all of my shock, sorrow and struggle, I sat at the feet of God. I literally spent hours each day reading God's word, meditating on scripture and praying. I intentionally spent a significant amount of time being still before God. -Rick Warren

I don't have the luxury of sitting around any more. I must have had bags of spare time before I had children, but I don't know what I did with it and I didn't appreciate it. But it's such a terrific trade-off. I don't have time to get a pedicure, but I sure am happy. Who cares if your feet look bad? -Julia Roberts

Usually, I wear tennis shoes because my feet are flat, and it hurts to wear anything other than shoes that are cushiony. -Ellen DeGeneres

If I dream that I'm directing, it's not a film, it's like a commercial for cotton candy, and I've got four feet of cotton candy all around me that I've got to break through, like a brick wall or a fortress. -Mike Birbiglia

I give myself homework when I have an audition. I give myself goals, and that's how I check how I'm doing. It can be something simple like 'listen,' or 'find your feet.' And then afterward it's an assessment, so in a way it's not about booking the job or not. It's about what I learned as an actor about that character. -Lupita Nyong'o

A motorcycle coming down from 30 feet at 70 mph gives you a terrible jolt. -Evel Knievel

The first thing I learned in boxing is to not get hit. That's the art of boxing. Execute your opponent without getting hit. In sports school, we were putting our hands behind our backs and having to defend ourselves with our shoulders, by rolling, by moving round the ring, moving out feet. -Wladimir Klitschko

In the first gospel, Mark, the risen Christ appears physically to no one, but by the time we come to the last gospel, John, Thomas is invited to feel the nail prints in Christ's hands and feet and the spear wound in his side. -John Shelby Spong

It's not an understatement to say that I owe everything as an actor to 'Merlin.' It was pretty much my first job, and I didn't know what I was doing for many years on it. It wasn't until the third and fourth series – the fourth series especially – that I really found my feet with the character, and as an actress. -Katie McGrath

I'm five feet tall – I'm very petite – so for me, if I'm wearing a skirt or dress, it needs to be short, or else it makes me look frumpy. I need to wear either something really short or a maxi dress; anything in between just looks weird. -Kourtney Kardashian

It's possible to look really cute and still be comfortable. You don't have to kill your feet to have a fashionable look. -Laura Marano

I once ran away from home because I was upset with my parents! I didn't get farther than a few feet into the woods, where I hid behind a tree. Sometimes you feel like you should just go out and rebel, and then you realize it's not the right thing to do. You've got to stay true to your family. -Max Schneider

The way the music comes to you starts to affect how you listen to music. When you're a kid, it's 'Does it rock? Does it make me feel good? Does it make me tap my feet? Does it make me go to sleep?' -Michael Franti

I eat bags and bags of cashews. I've got them in the kitchen, and about ten feet away I've got another bowl on the kitchen table. In my backpack, I've always got a bag of cashews. I started eating them in the airports because that's the one food that you can find in every airport that's actually nutritious. -Michael Franti

I have a very happy marriage and friends who keep my feet on the ground. But looking for satisfaction in life is difficult. Maybe being happy is as simple as not being unhappy. -Jasper Carrott

I don't think many people would think I'm a designer. I behave in a different way. I'd get knocked down and cut to pieces if I went home and flounced about; this industry is known for the flounciness, but I've got my feet on the ground. -Alice Temperley

My own pregnancies were all about me, me, me. My aches, my pains, my swollen feet, and my body that looked like the Michelin Man. -Barbara Park

I've got nice feet. I do pay quite a lot of attention to them. I always have. -Toks Olagundoye

People tend to comment on my feet a lot. In daily life. -Toks Olagundoye

I'm appreciative that people appreciate the care I've taken of my feet. -Toks Olagundoye

I'm six feet tall. No one realizes that because on 'The Daily Show' I'm usually sitting. -Jessica Williams

I'm not the guy with the enormous comedy nose or the big feet or the bad posture or the whatever; a physical comic has certain things. -Dick Cavett

What I wear is everything – from how I carry my hair to what I'm wearing on my feet. I have to feel comfortable on stage, so I like to wear things that have room. My mood changes a lot, so sometimes I wear 6-inch heels, and other times I'll perform in bare feet. -Laura Mvula

I like comfy feet. If I'm not barefoot, you'll probably find me with a pair of New Balance on. -Reid Scott

I'm not very good at cooking, and I'm away all the time, and I like transient living. I get really itchy feet if I stay in one place. -Alison Goldfrapp

I try to go home to Missouri every couple of months. I do that because I like my family, of course, but my mom doesn't know who Carine Roitfeld is. And as much as that horrifies me, it's a good way to keep your feet on the ground. -Derek Blasberg

I like people like Robert De Niro and Anthony Hopkins. And Gianfranco Zola, who played for Chelsea and Italy. He's an artist with his feet. -Phil Daniels

My grandmother died in childbirth, and my great-aunt lived with us. She had bound feet. She never knew how to read or write. -Wendi Deng Murdoch

I make the music my ears want to hear, I wear the clothes my body wants to wear and the ones boys call me back for, and I generally make the songs that my feet dance to. -Natalia Kills

Scouting teaches a boy to take care of himself and stand on his own two feet. -Ezra Taft Benson

Every accountable child of God needs to set goals, short- and long-range goals. A man who is pressing forward to accomplish worthy goals can soon put despondency under his feet, and once a goal is accomplished, others can be set up. -Ezra Taft Benson

I wouldn't want to be someone's roommate, that's for sure. You can't do certain things: you can't leave the bathroom door open… you can't put your feet on the couch, you can't hide stuff in the couch. -J. B. Smoove

The great 'New York Times' columnist Dave Anderson famously slept one year in a child's race-car bed. There he was, Pulitzer Prize and all, snoring as his feet dangled over the rear tires of Lightning McQueen. -Willie Geist

My grandmother on my father's side, a nightclub singer, was a Jewish refugee from Prussia who ended up in Jerusalem, where she met my grandfather – a British army officer. I remember as a child having bowls of chicken soup made by her. There were lots of interesting components, like feet and necks. -Jamie Cullum

Thanks to 'I'm Yours,' I'm probably set for a really long time. The pressure I put on myself, or what I hope my 'I Won't Give Up' does, is to make a difference in people's lives… With 'I'm Yours,' I got to go out and set my feet on different continents, and expose myself to different cultures and causes. -Jason Mraz

Despite my love affair with skyscraper heels, luckily for my feet I rarely wear them – preferring, instead, the comfort and child-handling practicalities of a pair of trainers. -Sheherazade Goldsmith

As a cameraman, I was paid to stand within a few feet of Yehudi Menuhin performing. I saw Rudolph Nureyev dancing. I couldn't believe I was being paid for that. -Michael Bond

When I lived in London when I did 'Wicked' there, everyone told me the audiences might be much more reserved, but I found it was completely the opposite. They jumped to their feet sooner, even more enthusiastically than the New York audiences did, and they were just as warm and as enthusiastic and supportive as New York. -Idina Menzel

The problem is not scientifically illiterate kids; it is scientifically illiterate adults. Kids are born curious about the natural world. They are always turning over rocks, jumping with two feet into mud puddles and playing with the tablecloth and fine china. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

Men and women have defined roles, and it's the responsibility of a parent to make sure they know which way to go; otherwise, a child would feed themselves with their feet without the correct guidance. -Monica Johnson

There are some famous people, and I've met them, who you might think are great, and then you meet them, and you discover that they not only have feet but heads of clay. -Anne Beatts

With a tennis racket strapped tightly to her hiking pack, Martina Navratilova began her ascent of Mount Kilimanjaro. The tennis legend had visions of celebrating at the summit of Africa's highest peak by hitting a couple balls to see how far they might fly in the thin air at 19,341 feet. -Don Yaeger

I live in New Hampshire. We're in favor of global warming. Eleven hundred more feet of sea-level rises? I've got beachfront property. You tell us up there, 'By the end of the century, New York City could be underwater,' and we say, 'Your point is?' -P. J. O'Rourke

Kabul is a walled city, which sounds romantic except the walls are pre-cast reinforced concrete blast barriers, 10 feet tall and 15 feet long and moved into place with cranes. The walls are topped with sandbags, and the sandbags are topped with guard posts from which gun barrels protrude. -P. J. O'Rourke

I myself, however wretched I may be, have been occasionally privileged to sit at the feet of the Lord Jesus, and to the extent that his merciful love allowed, have embraced with all my heart, now one, now the other, of these feet. -Saint Bernard

In a regular theatre, you'd be kind of moving your eye from one character 5 feet over to the right on the cut. In IMAX, suddenly that's like 20 feet. So I would love to do something. I think I would really want to take the massive screen into consideration so that it would be done properly. -Pete Docter

I wouldn't call myself a dancer. I would never even dance in a club – I can't move my feet! I'm terribly shy about moving. I feel comfortable in my body, but dancing is like learning another language. -Matthew James Thomas

All the great game show hosts have a signature 'look,' from Bob Barker's year-round Brazil Nut-hued tan to Monty Hall's oversized lamb chop sideburns. As the host of IFC's new comedy game show 'Bunk,' I, too, have worked to develop a style signature by being the first man or woman in TV history to host every show in my bare feet! -Kurt Braunohler

When I was 3, my parents strapped on a pair of Playskool plastic roller skates to my feet, and that's where the story begins. -J. R. Celski

I am a tall man, 6 feet and 1 1/4, and I am born in 1913; that's all. -Gert Frobe

The American woman is a charming creature. She is of a type most unusual and delightful… And their feet and ankles are the most perfect in the world. -Jean Patou

I grew up a huge fan of The Three Stooges and Monty Python, so somebody getting slapped in the face with a fish, or falling out of a chair, or running into a door, or tripping over their own feet and eating it, is all stuff I find really, really funny. -Thomas Sadoski

My friends think it's weird that I spray perfume on my feet. -Chantal Sutherland

Politicians usually get the blame for dragging their feet on environmental issues. And fair enough. Most of them do just that. But the blame isn't theirs alone. For politicians afraid of losing votes, a bristling media waiting to transform good green ideas into monsters is a colossal disincentive. -Zac Goldsmith

I can't imagine what it's like to go through life without shoes to protect your feet, and yet millions of kids do it. That's why TOMS is such an incredible company – it gives shoes to children who need them! -Amanda Hearst

A lot of leftists think it is soccer's fault that people don't think, while most rightists are convinced that soccer is a proof that people think with their feet. -Eduardo Galeano

You don't have to be Wilt Chamberlain to get into the Basketball Hall of Fame. If you don't have a sweet turnaround jumper from 18 feet, the best route to the Hall is fatherhood. Daniel Biasone, aka the 'father of the 24-second clock,' made the cut. -Brendan I. Koerner

Monorail tracks are prefabricated and can be erected relatively quickly: Simply dig a hole every 120 feet or so, plop down a column, and lift the track into place. Because the systems operate above traffic, collisions with errant motorists are never an issue. The trains are automated, saving millions in labor costs in the long run. -Brendan I. Koerner

In my day, when you called on a girl, her mother was always hollering down to see if she was still unraped, the maid would look in, her father would shuffle his feet in another room. Today the boy calls up, says, 'Meet you at the back door of Stern's.' -Frank Crowninshield

Physical elegance, which is what I am talking about here, comes from the body. This is no superficial matter, but rather the way that man found to honour the way he places his two feet on the ground. -Paulo Coelho

Although skin color is undoubtedly the most salient signal of racial identity in America, other actual or imagined bodily features have also been seen as distinctive markers of Negritude. These include the shapes of heads, feet, lips, and noses as well as the texture of hair. -Randall Kennedy

Sometimes, at parties, people demand I tell a joke. It's like pointing a gun at my feet and telling me to dance. -Celia Rivenbark

Sadly, for those who are busy sawing off their feet to escape the trap of cliches, every story is chock full of them and sometimes depends on an especially hoary one. -Rafael Yglesias

Choreography is writing on your feet. -Bob Fosse

You can always land on your feet if you know where the ground is. -George Cukor

There's no job like 'SNL.' There's no other job you go to where you're like, 'Oh, this is like that live, late-night sketch variety-musical show that shoots in, whatever it is, 10,000 feet of sound stage.' There's nothing like it. -Taran Killam

A lot of people cannot dance because they are inhibited. 'Oh, I can't dance' or 'I have two left feet' or maybe someone has commented on their dancing a while back. When you enjoy something, you might be doing the simplest of moves, but they still look so beautiful. -Madhuri Dixit

Yes, many people in rural parts of India are very orthodox and have arranged marriages. But I won't – I want to fall madly in love with someone and be whisked off my feet. -Shilpa Shetty

My way of viewing the talking filibuster was as a way of doing unanimous consent with your feet. You object by going down and talking. -Jeff Merkley

I am just a Flemish girl with her feet on the ground. -Ann Demeulemeester

Any mature, responsible adult doesn't run around stomping their feet and screaming 'I'm a mature, responsible, adult.' -Debby Ryan

For me, shoe-wise, platforms give me the same height that I need, but they're not as taxing on my feet. -Debby Ryan

I usually write in my underwear, with a space heater running full blast, and three dogs sleeping at me feet. -Jonathan Evison

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. -Stephen Hawking

Before you rip off three feet of toilet paper, consider that each year 500,000 acres of virgin boreal forest in northern Alberta and Ontario are being clear-cut to make the stuff. These forests are home to some 500 First Nation communities, as well as caribou and bears, moose and wolves, and, in the summertime, billions of songbirds. -Alex Shoumatoff

The episode of the 'shoe bomber,' Richard Reid, has suddenly meant more feet being bared at airports than at the average Hindu temple. My solution has been to replace my customary lace-up Oxfords with a pair of slip-on loafers when I fly. Generals are always fighting the last war, and security screeners are the same. -Shashi Tharoor

Programs like food stamps, unemployment insurance, Medicaid, and job retraining help Americans get back on their feet when they are down and out and laid off through no fault of their own. -Hank Johnson

We are nothing if we walk alone; we are everything when we walk together in step with other dignified feet. -Subcomandante Marcos

The word of the oldest of the old of our peoples didn't stop. It spoke the truth, saying that our feet couldn't walk alone, that our history of pain and shame was repeated and multiplied in the flesh and blood of the brothers and sisters of other lands and skies. -Subcomandante Marcos

My girlfriend is a great support, and I've got a big circle of mates who keep my feet on the ground. -Rob James-Collier

My parents were concerned that I would not get good schooling, so they put me up in my uncle's house in Dharwad, and I spent about six years there. So at a very young age, I was away from my parents. I developed an amount of independence and learned to stand on my own feet. -Nandan Nilekani

As long as I am winning, people shouldn't care whether my skirt is six inches long or six feet long. How I dress is a very personal thing. It is scary that every time I wear a T-shirt, it becomes a talking point for the next three days. -Sania Mirza

I found the purpose of my existence, and also the purpose of my circumstance. There's a purpose for why you're in the fire. If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart! -Nick Vujicic

Winter sports aren't my thing. You can have your boards and blades and your glacier-gripping cleats: My feet prefer to negotiate the ground on a pair of dependable soles. -Julia Glass

Shoes are a neutral blessing for us because feet generally aren't regarded as a place where the battle for self-esteem is won or lost. Feet don't change size when the body does through the natural ageing process. -Simon Van Booy

Offal and offcuts such as head and feet can be picked up for next to nothing, and eating them helps to avoid waste. -Tristram Stuart

Skysurfing is skydiving with a board on the feet. You can imagine with this big surface of a skysurfing board, there is a lot of force, a lot of power. Of course, I can use this power, for example, for nice spinning – we call it 'helicopter moves.' -Ueli Gegenschatz

The Maldives, a string of islands off the coast of India whose highest point above sea level is eight feet, may be the first nation to drown. In Alaska, entire towns have begun to shift in the loosening permafrost. -Michael Specter

What's a space elevator? Simply described, it's a thin ribbon, about 3 feet wide and 60 thousand miles long, stretching upwards from the surface of the Earth. The lower end is bolted to a heavy anchor (think of an oil drilling platform), and the top is capped with a counterweight. -Seth Shostak

Mike Leigh taught me about making choices – as an actor, you choose between being honest and clever, and with Mike, it's always about being honest. I learned how to behave on a film set from Jim Broadbent. He was a great example of someone with a fantastic career who kept his feet on the ground. -Eddie Marsan

Bare feet on the grass comfort the spirit and connect the body to the earth all at once! -Maximillian Degenerez

I don't see myself as angry, although other people see that. I just see myself as a short, dumpy guy with bad feet, and I'm passionate. -Tracy Morgan

By five or six, when the heels start to hurt, I kick off my shoes and walk bare feet. But that's not a big deal. Nobody else is at the office at that time, and as for singing loudly, I don't sing loudly. I might hum a tune at times when I am thinking about something, but that's all fine. -Indra Nooyi

You don't simply tell someone to get out there and win the tennis match. You say 'move your feet' or 'watch the fuzz on the ball' to really get into the Zen of it. You pull all that together, and then you just might hold up the Wimbledon Plate… It's not about winning first place but bringing every element of effort to whatever you do. -Diana Nyad

I didn't really have an interest in politics when I first entered the workforce. What I wanted to do was help people who grew up like me. When I was a kid growing up in Tucson, my father lost his job and we lost everything – including our home. We lived in an abandoned gas station for two years until we were able to get back on our feet. -Kyrsten Sinema

I think a lot of good actors – for instance, Gary Sinise – have no training. His training was really entirely on his feet. I suppose you have to have an instinct for it. -Glenne Headly

Six feet three in her stocking feet, L'Wren Scott was every inch a great lady. -Hamish Bowles

I absolutely hated high school. As a freshman, I was 5 feet tall and weighed 95 pounds… When I got to high school, I had no social skills. Was I a nerd? More of a dork. Definitely not one of the popular kids. -Grant Show

Do you feel gloomy? Lift your eyes. Stand on your feet. Say a few words of appreciation and love to the Lord. Be positive. -Gordon B. Hinckley

A breeding sow spends most of her life in a tiny cage. It's usually about seven feet long and two feet wide. She cannot turn around. She cannot scratch herself. She must urinate and defecate where she stands. Simply put, I believe she is tortured, day in and day out. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

Mother Earth needs us to keep our covenant. We will do this in courts, we will do this on our radio station, and we will commit to our descendants to work hard to protect this land and water for them. Whether you have feet, wings, fins, or roots, we are all in it together. -Winona LaDuke

As long as I have my feet, I can dance; you know what I'm saying? -Dule Hill

My father was truly a great man. I remember one day putting my feet in my father's shoes. I was amazed at the size. Would I ever be big enough to fill his shoes? Could I ever grow into the man my father was? I wondered. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Apparently, I have good feet for ballet. -Gillian Jacobs

My poor, problematic feet don't let me wear anything much over a three- or four-inch heel. -Gillian Jacobs

Rip Rig & Panic was a milestone for me, and I've always been really thankful that I did that when I was 16. It saved me for when I suddenly became really successful later on. So even when my head's been spinning like a banshee, my feet still feel held down to the ground. -Neneh Cherry

I have some bad feet. But really, my main fault would probably be my personality. A lot of times, I am not serious enough. I joke around too much sometimes. -Tim Hudson

Learn the Constitution. Then when someone wants to be elected, hold their feet to the fire and make them follow it because that's what we need to get back to. It works so well when we follow it. -Joe Wurzelbacher

I always have a football handy at home, and I'll play with it. Sometimes it'll get on my wife's nerves. But the moment I've got a ball at my feet, I'm happy. -Thierry Henry

I remember being fascinated by ants and wasps and other bugs when I was a kid. I'd set out a Coke can and stand back 20 feet and use my telescope to watch wasps land on it. -Paul McEuen

Some people treat seeing me as if they just won a car on 'The Price is Right.' The feet get going, and the hands start flapping, and it's really quite amazing. It's a little scary: you can't have more than two or three of them at the same time because someone might get hurt. But it's great fun. -John Schneider

I feel like I've got feet firmly in different camps. Between the right of gun ownership and public safety. -Tim Walz

Once, no self-respecting puncher considered himself dressed for work until he had his feet inside of a pair of $15 boots made by one of the favorite boot-makers, whose merits they discussed about the camp fires night after night. -Will C. Barnes

Stealing home is one of the most sensational plays in baseball. If the run thus scored is the winning tally, the play is, of course, all the more thrilling. It is a play that requires a lot of quick thinking to bring about a successful completion. The chap who has slow moving feet and a slower moving brain had better never try to steal home. -Billy Evans

Comedy, when it works, is light on its feet and has the illusion of complete spontaneity: as if there is no film, no camera. You are standing there experiencing it all in real time. This illusion, I believe, is why so many people think comedy is easy. -David Dobkin

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

Enclosed by a sand berm four miles around and 160 feet high, the Baghdad Nuclear Research Facility entombs what remains of reactors bombed by Israel in 1981 and the United States in 1991. It has stored industrial and medical wastes, along with spent reactor fuel. -Barton Gellman

Soledad Barrio is clearly a master – of thrilling steps and passionate movement. She stalks, she circles, she struts, she snaps her head – her feet drill the stage. -Robert Gottlieb

As a kid, I was so short, it was tough for me to keep up with the taller guys. I always had quick feet, but I just didn't have any power, really, as a kid. -Carl Hagelin

I will definitely start in small venues, as I want to find my feet as a performer; the first shows that Westlife did was ten dates at Wembley, which was just crazy. We didn't have a clue what we were doing because it was so big. -Shane Filan

I just sing. But I have a fun hobby: I love to do archery. I'm pretty good on target. I'm not sure about the distances – maybe only 7 or 10 feet, so far, but I've scored the bull's eye several times, but usually always hit the target. -Jackie Evancho

My feet are not a good part of my body. They definitely have suffered for my art. They're, like, all bunions and blisters. -Lindy Booth

I don't have a brilliant body at all. I've got very broad shoulders. I've got very big feet. I've also got a very muscular neck. -Jaye Davidson

My feet are my foundation, and they should always feel good! -Megan Hilty

On the 'Revenge' set, even if they're not showing my feet, I'll still wear my heels because it gets me in the feeling of Ashley Davenport. -Ashley Madekwe

If I'm outside, I want something flat on my feet. -Ashley Madekwe

The hardest role that I've ever tried to play was Clara Johnson in 'Light in the Piazza' at Lincoln Center. It was the least fun I've ever had, but the most beautiful experience I've ever had. I could not understand her. I could not put my feet in her shoes. I came home every night, and I was depressed. -Kelli O'Hara

I'm quite interested in adapting some of James Herbert's early work. 'The Dark'… But I was always desperate to do an adaptation of 'War of the Worlds' until the Beard stole it from underneath my feet. -Neil Marshall

In February 1991, I was rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles to have my feet amputated. Three years earlier, I had broken the national 100 meters hurdles record while a student at UCLA and was a favourite for the event at the 1988 Seoul Olympics. -Gail Devers

I played football; I was a running back, and I took a hit, and I had a hairline fracture in my leg which no one spotted, and I was playing basketball all winter and it got worse. And then I was long jumping, about 20 feet, and I landed one time and there was this big crack, and all the bones were jutting out of my leg. -Nick McDonell

I typically shoot underwater with my regular camera in an underwater housing, and then I usually have two big strobes that I use to light. But with whales, you're not going to be able to really light a 45-foot subject. Your strobes are only effective for maybe five or six feet underwater. -Brian Skerry

Heights make my feet tingle; not sure if that is a phobia, but it isn't the greatest feeling. -Charlie Rowe

This is the fantasy of every woman – to hold at our feet servile and tame slaves, like in Roman times. And the worse we treat them, the more passionate they become. -Thalia

I don't have a steady relationship. That's something that women in politics deal with. For some reason, men in politics seem to have a larger charisma, and women drop around their feet. I haven't noticed that so much for me. -Lara Giddings

New Orleans lives by the water and fights it, a sand castle set on a sponge nine feet below sea level, where people made music from heartache, named their drinks for hurricanes and joked that one day you'd be able to tour the city by gondola. -Nancy Gibbs

I'm sentimental about many things: the lumpy feel of a baby's unused feet, the metallic smell of the air before the first snow, the last scene in 'It's a Wonderful Life.' But Valentine's Day leaves me cold. -Nancy Gibbs

When I first did 'Moby,' I didn't realize how taxing it would be. I was climbing fifty feet up in the air and climbing down. Literally, it's so busy, you feel you're on a ship. You're always moving; you're constantly adding clothes or taking them off, and there are many people on stage all the time! -Stephen Costello

I love the Wendy Syred boutique in Taunton. She has fantastic off-the-wall stuff, such as Vivienne Westwood. And I always have huge success in Omah Shoes, which is also in Taunton. I've got such small feet – three and a half – but I always find my size there. -Kate O'Mara

I was very fortunate to have some great mentors. A father that was always in my life set the example every day at home. Everybody asks me, 'What was your role model?' My role model slept 20 feet from me every night. I could always go talk to him and ask him questions no matter what it was about. -Larry Fitzgerald

We must not let ourselves be swept off our feet in horror at the danger of nuclear power. Nuclear power is not infinitely dangerous. It's just dangerous, much as coal mines, petrol repositories, fossil-fuel burning and wind turbines are dangerous. -David J. C. MacKay

Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars. -Casey Kasem

All the screen cowboys behaved like real gentlemen. They didn't drink, they didn't smoke. When they knocked the bad guy down, they always stood with their fists up, waiting for the heavy to get back on his feet. I decided I was going to drag the bad guy to his feet and keep hitting him. -John Wayne

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

My back has been compressed and operated on, my feet have been surgically cut up, and I have a knee that's just going wacky. So I do my own driving, and I ski and skate. I'm playing hockey again. Anything that immobilizes my feet I'm OK with. -Richard Dean Anderson

I'm a believer, but an unsettled one. I think it has something to do with the fact that my grandmother always told me she would come back and tickle my feet at night time when she passed away. She hasn't gotten me yet. But I keep the blanket over my feet at night, no matter how hot it is. -Shari Sebbens

I played Little League. I was a 'pitcher.' But we had a pitching machine, so I was just basically an 'in-infield' shortstop because all I got to do was field bloopers six feet from the plate. I couldn't hit, so that was pretty much my entire job. -Freddie Prinze, Jr.

I had one of the most outdoorsy childhoods you could imagine. I basically lived in the woods until I was 13. My dad and I built a huge treehouse in our backyard in Chesterfield, about 30 feet in the air. And we'd vacation on an island in Michigan, where I hunted a deer that we ate. -Gabriel Basso

Part of George R.R. Martin's brilliant storytelling is taking the carpet out from under your feet. -Harry Lloyd

We've heard a lot in recent polemic about how to win the fight for the corner office. But pushing up against a glass ceiling is practically a luxury when you consider the millions of women who can feel the floor dropping beneath their feet. -Tina Brown

There is a special sensation in getting good wood on the ball and driving a double down the left-field line as the crowd in the ballpark rises to its feet and cheers. But, I also remember how much fun I had as a skinny barefoot kid hitting a tennis ball with a broomstick on a quiet, dusty street in Panama. -Rod Carew

I started modeling at 28. I'm 5-feet-7 1/2, and I never went on a diet. I followed what my doctor told me: 'It's good to have a little bit of fat. Your weight is fine. Don't go any lighter.' -Isabella Rossellini

I'm at 23 feet, diving into 17 feet of water. I'm over 400 pounds. Who doesn't want to see that? I do. I'm always shocked that I can do it. -Louie Anderson

Golf's ultimate moral instruction directs us to find within ourselves a pivotal center of enjoyment: relax into a rhythm that fits the hills and swales, and play the shot at hand – not the last one, or the next one, but the one at your feet, in the poison ivy, where you put it. -John Updike

My mother is a tall woman – as is everyone in my family. At her prime, she stood 5 feet 9 inches, which is quite unusual for a woman born in 1922. -Judy Gold

Remember the phrase – 'Act your age, not your shoe size?' That didn't apply to me, as they were the same until the age of 12 when my feet stopped growing. -Judy Gold

Because it flew without a pilot, the D-21 was designed to fly over territory where the U.S. was denied access and to take photographs of weapons facilities from altitudes as low as 1,500 feet. But the project was canceled on July 30, 1966, after a fatal accident at sea during the drone's first official launch. -Annie Jacobsen

Cancer didn't bring me to my knees, it brought me to my feet. -Michael Douglas

From a good lie in the middle of a fairway bunker, I'll make the same swing as I do from an average fairway lie. I'll dig my feet in slightly and keep my lower body stable so I won't slip, but I don't change my club selection or setup. It's only when the ball is sitting down in the sand that I'll make some modifications. -Ernie Els

You hope all good athletes run on the balls of their feet. You don't want them coming down heel first. The perfect style is the foot to come down with a slight supination and on a tilt to the outside. -Sebastian Coe

I'm always stressed when I have to wear a long dress, especially with those high heels. I'm like, 'Oh my God, I'm going to fall! My feet are going to get caught in the dress!' -Sigrid Agren

Some celebrities like to get behind water conservation or helping the homeless get back on their feet. Me? Body grooming control: that's what I like to step behind 100 percent. -Adam DeVine

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective. -Gilbert K. Chesterton

I like getting my feet massaged; I'll get whoever's closest to do it. -Liam Hemsworth

My dad used to have an expression – 'It is the lucky person who gets up in the morning, puts both feet on the floor, knows what they are about to do, and thinks it still matters.' -Joe Biden

I never go to the gym – I can't be doing with it. But I run up and down the stairs, wash my feet in the basin to keep supple, and I don't eat things that have a pulse. -Joanna Lumley

At 10, I could walk down the street and see over everybody's head. I don't remember being little or having to look up at people. I think I was born 5 feet 10. It's not that I felt especially tall. I was wondering when everybody else was going to catch up. -Judith Jamison

I always write back to people who are kind enough to write to me. Actually, I don't write – I recline on my red velvet sofa with my feet on the coffee table and dictate the letters to my eldest son. -Sue Townsend

Sometimes, thinking on your feet can be the most creative. Constrained circumstances can bring the best out of you. Some of the most successful shows come out of shoestring invention. -Cameron Mackintosh

I am different because I have better schooling, better understanding of the line, gesture, how feet working, positions. They taught me modern things… and I wanted to give what I had: my schooling. -Natalia Makarova

On a beautiful clear Sunday morning, myself and James Nesbitt jumped out of a plane together at 18,000 feet. -Aidan Turner

My audiences who love me don't mind me dancing with two left feet. -Sunny Deol

What do you remember about Jason Robinson? His feet. Not how improved he was under a high ball or his kicking skills. Everyone remembers those feet. He could go round you in a phone box. -Brian O'Driscoll

Nobody in Africa loves to be a beggar or a recipient of aid. Everywhere I go in Africa, people say, 'When are we going to stand up on our feet?' -Mo Ibrahim

I've seen my fair share of drama over the years of Children In Need. I had a close brush with mortality in 2009 when a chain collapsed from the studio rigging. I was in mid-spout to camera when I heard an enormous crash behind me – a ton of steel had come hurtling down and smashed to the ground a few feet away. -Terry Wogan

Everything on my body turned real dark. My toes, under my feet, inside my mouth, under my tongue – I just turned really dark. I'm still here, but it's gonna take a while to get back to normal. Chemo kills all the good cells along with the bad. -Sharon Jones

I've spent years trying to time up my drops with my throws. You learn to listen to your feet and trust your positions. -Aaron Rodgers

As early as I can remember, I wanted to be a snowplow driver. When you grow up in the Rocky Mountains, like I did, you see the snow drifts piled up six feet high, and you're two feet, so it's impressive. -Kip Thorne

A woman who's light on her feet is always going to make the guy on her arm look better. -Tom Cavanagh

More than anything, what we do as actors is to sit and watch, and I would never want to get so lost in the celebrity bubble I couldn't do that because my feet no longer touch the ground. -Chris Pine

Gorillas are the largest of the great apes. A mature male may be six feet tall and weigh 400 pounds or more; his enormous arms can span eight feet. -Dian Fossey

I spent a lot of time in the clouds. Becoming a mother has really helped me put my feet on the ground and given me a very powerful sense of self and a powerful sense of priority in life. -Evangeline Lilly

It's an interesting but useless bit of information that every single character in 'The Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit' wears a wig, and many of them wears a prosthetic – false ears, feet, hands. In my case, nose. -Ian Mckellen

It's really odd to be up close to an icon like Bruce Willis. You're used to seeing him on a screen, 50 feet tall. To think, 'Hmm, I'm taller than you are' is just weird. -Luke Grimes

You want to know how I'm feeling? Just look at me, and I'll tell you how I'm feeling. Nothing is hidden. I'm all out there. I cry like a baby, I get upset, I stamp my feet. I'm not stoic. -Marcia Gay Harden

I've got my feet on the ground because I've got a lovely family waiting for me when I get home, even though they're not my flesh and blood. I haven't got children. That's my only regret, I suppose. -Bonnie Tyler

I slept fourteen feet from a polka tavern as a kid growing up. I heard polkas all night long, people singing and drinking beers and having a great time. I know more polkas than Frankie Yancovic! -Al Jarreau

Almost any shark, three or four feet long, could kill a human being if it chose to do it. It could make you bleed to death. But they don't. -Peter Benchley

Whenever I see a tree that is climbable, it must be climbed. Sometimes when I'm on a run, I'll just run up a tree, jump on a branch and swing off. My favorite tree, in Saratoga, gets me a good 75 feet up. -Aaron Patzer

When faith did come, it came, I think, by way of my little paralyzed daughter. Her lifeless hands led me; I think her tiny feet still know beautiful paths. -Joyce Kilmer

I have never been worried about the future. I will always be able to drive my own feet. -Kabir Bedi

In Japan, I live in a little neighborhood in the middle of nowhere. I don't have a bicycle or a car or anything, so my only movement is within the boundaries of my feet. I feel there's a need for that kind of conscientious objection to the momentum of the world. -Pico Iyer

Golfers who play a lot of courses often encounter short ledges or retaining walls, and I always had fun hopping down from them. I could jump off something six feet high and land like a cat, no problem. Well, today I can't jump off anything higher than two feet without it just killing me. -Tom Watson

Good keepers sniff out attacks whether with the feet or a throw out. -Tim Howard

My very, very first moment on set on 'Lord of the Rings' in 2000 was me in a lycra suit, six and a half thousand feet up on a mountain in New Zealand, standing in front of 250 crew who were all wondering what I was doing – myself included. -Andy Serkis

I make my guitar scream with pain or pleasure or sensuality. It makes people move their feet and shake their bodies. That's what music does. -Dick Dale

Sometimes you're watching a great film actor, and if you stand 10 feet away from them, you're like, 'God, they're terrible. They're not doing anything.' And then you see the close-up, and it's so nuanced, and so much expression is happening. They were acting for that camera and for no one else. -Finn Wittrock

I had some great pitchers while in St. Louis. At first, they only 'pitched' the ball fifty feet. They had an allowance of six bases on balls, which was neutralized to some extent by four strikes. Later on, the 'throw' became a free-for-all, overhand, or any style the pitcher chose. -Charles Comiskey

By and large, our political system has betrayed its promise to each new generation of Filipinos, not a few of whom are voting with their feet, going abroad and leaving that system behind. -Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

Agrarian reform should not merely subdivide misery, it must raise living standards. Ownership raises the farmer from his, but productivity will keep him on his feet. -Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

Fracking opens up vast tracts of the U.S. to exploitation by gas drillers. There's enough energy under our feet to last us for decades, maybe centuries. -Kenneth Fisher

Statistically after six months, if an Indigenous or non-Indigenous person has come off welfare, even long-term welfare, and has stuck in that's job for six months, then they've really broken in their own psychology the welfare reliance mentality. They're up on their own two feet. -Andrew Forrest

We want the city back on its feet. We want to have jobs for the city. -Manuel Moroun

If you don't like what you do, you're probably dragging your feet. -Victor Koo

I have a fear of water, believe it or not. To put a wire 12 feet over a swimming pool frightens me. I don't like water. -Philippe Petit

Notre Dame and Sydney – that was nothing. Notre Dame doesn't have a police station; it is not 1,000 or so feet high. It was a public structure, very easy to access. And Sydney Harbour Bridge was half-and-half: a bridge, in the middle of the night. The World Trade Center was the end of the world. Electronic devices, police dogs. -Philippe Petit

I rendezvous with the long wire and perform the 'torero walk', gliding my feet, holding the pole away from my body, head high. -Philippe Petit

I relax by looking at things and reading about things. Even the simplest thing can reveal a great deal about the world around us. It relaxes me greatly to sit back with my feet up and look around my study at the everyday things that surround me. -Henry Petroski

Everyone has something that defines them, whether they're wildly intelligent or whether they have really big feet. -Gwendoline Christie

I am this guy who's four and a half feet tall, but my life doesn't constantly address it. -Peter Dinklage

I think with a lot of filmmakers, their first film is their best film because they had to think on their feet and solve problems with ingenuity. -Peter Dinklage

The Czech Republic, severed from its old Slovak half, sits in apparent landlocked contentment, inside the European Union but outside the troubled Euro Zone, set into the new Continental mosaic like one of the small sturdy paving stones, just a few inches square, that form the sidewalks under the visitor's ambling feet. -Thomas Mallon

The pedicure is beside the point – the rub is all I care about. And not just my feet, my calves and thighs. There is nothing better, except maybe a scalp massage. -Amy Landecker

I love the water. Everything about it. Smelling the humidity in the air, seeing the mist rise in the morning, feeling the dew-wet grass on my bare feet. I love watching the fish jump and the geese land. We even have an eagle here that circles every so often. -Lori Foster

Just think about it: in every shop in the reading world since 1956, there has been two feet of book-space devoted to Tolkien. -John Rhys-Davies

A fan sent me a pair of fluffy winter socks, and I was like, 'Oh, that's cool. I'll wear them to bed. It's cold; it's winter.' But they were worn. They were black underneath, and they stunk, and I hate feet. She was like, 'I'm giving you my favorite pair.' -Ella Henderson

I was weaned not on television or Wild West sagas but on stories of nationalism and patriotism. I would sit at my mother's feet by the hour and drink in these exciting tales of the freedom fighters in our family. -Sukarno

People don't understand that the feel of the surface is so important for a footballer. The ball travels on the surface; our feet move on the surface – all of that goes into how the game is actually played. -Abby Wambach

I painted the Astor-Victoria sign seven times, and it's 395 feet wide and 58 feet high. I dropped a gallon of purple paint on Seventh Avenue and 47th Street from 15 stories up and didn't kill anybody. I dropped a brush at Columbus Circle. It fell on a guy's camel-hair coat. -James Rosenquist

My father's like – it's as if he was transparent. He's a man of great mystery, whereas apparently N.C. Wyeth was 6-feet, 2-inches tall, with a booming voice. I think that's reflected in their work. -Jamie Wyeth

Money looks better in the bank than on your feet. -Sophia Amoruso

My favorite place is whichever sidewalk is beneath my feet because I am just constantly fascinated by walking and looking and learning. If I've already walked a street five times, then the next five times I walk it looking up, and I learn something about the cornices. -Danny Meyer

I have an 'office,' technically. I never use it. I work on a couch in my living room, with my laptop on my lap, looking out the windows. I love space and green things. And I'm an incredibly casual person. I slouch. I close the laptop and just lie on the couch for a while if I need to think. I put my feet up on a table while I type. -Ramez Naam

I chose biochemistry as my major and graduated after 4 years with an Honours degree in Biochemistry. During that time, I had come to love biochemistry research, although I was just getting my feet wet in laboratory research. -Elizabeth Blackburn

I was reading newspaper front pages from the 1930s, and I was taken aback. I'm not naive about American history, but I was a bit knocked off my feet by things that used to be on the front pages of newspapers. -Daniel Woodrell

I tried to stay with things until I thought they were on their feet and they learned to walk and talk. -Glen A. Larson

My mom had five kids. And she came home after working three jobs, and I'd rub her feet. We'd all rub her feet. We were lucky to get any time with her. -Lee Daniels

If my feet ever left the ground, my mother would soon put them back down. -Douglas Booth

In 2010, when the Lotus Sutra was made available to me by a private dealer, I was very fortunate to be able to have it. It is very long, 30 feet or something crazy like that. It has some 15,000 very small standard script characters that the artist Zhao Mengfu in the Yuan dynasty made when he was in his 60s. -Jerry Yang

Greeks have always been very confident, very strong people. That is – that is our real, I guess, benefit, is that we are independent thinkers. We will always get up on our feet. We – we sometimes act the best when we are downtrodden. -Pavlos, Crown Prince of Greece

I love being a mom. But there's a certain kind of tedium to your life when your kid is young. Writing allows you to wander when your kid is napping in a crib ten feet away. So that's the great joy of writing fiction for me. -Gayle Forman

You always feel the ground rumbling beneath your feet, and if you don't, you're an idiot. Mostly because it is rumbling beneath your feet, and there is always someone who is coming up behind you who is as good, younger, and, at least as you perceive it, has more energy and more nimbleness than you. -Scott Rudin

Living in New York, for me at least, just keeps it very real and keeps my feet firmly planted on the ground. -Tamara Tunie

You've got to pay the bills, and you want to get your foot in. The great shows usually aren't going to look for somebody completely untested, so you have to kind of get your feet wet doing other shows. -Mike Scully

I think people thought I was crazy for leaving Mexico when I had any project I wanted falling at my feet. But I risked everything to come to Los Angeles, where no one knew who I was, and start all over again. It was a very hard step to take. However, it was the moment I thought it was right to take a risk in my career. -Karla Souza

To act for a living is a gift, and understanding you're a lucky bloke keeps your feet on the ground. -Michael Socha

I thought art was dead rabbits hanging by their feet on a wall. I went to Italy and saw all the religious paintings, and they didn't move me all that much. Then someone invited me to see this van Gogh exhibit at the Rosenberg Gallery in San Francisco. -Irving Stone

Virgin America flyers tend to be more likely to be using a mobile device and tapping social networks – even at 35,000 feet. -Sam Altman

Jabari Parker is one of the best, if not the best, I've seen on tape. He's so hard to guard. You've got to guard from 23 feet. He can shoot it, or he can go one-on-one from there. He can post. He's so fast and long. -Steve Alford

Everything is always on the table. I think it's one of the things that's made 'Arrow' special. But we also all collectively feel like 'The Flash' needs to stand on its own two feet, now that it's gotten its launch from 'Arrow.' -Marc Guggenheim

Our experience is that it is not terribly difficult to do business in China. But the issue is, how much stability do you have in terms of what you negotiate up front and when you've got your feet and your investments on the ground. -Azim Premji

My own zigzag path through life led me back to Santa Cruz in the early Eighties, and I have revisited regularly since. The place hasn't changed: head in the clouds, backside on the hills and feet in the ocean – one of the most decent and beautiful places on earth. -Clive Sinclair

Heinrich Heine once imagined the exiled Israelite as a dog who regains his stolen manhood only when he embraces the Sabbath bride. I see western swing performing a similar function in hardscrabble Texas, turning dirt-poor hired hands into Dapper Dans with magic feet at the Saturday night hoe-down. -Clive Sinclair

Maybe strong leaders are not quite as alluring as we think, and we should celebrate the fact that our leaders are just like us. Just because one candidate can't remember his whole speech and the other likes to put his feet up on the job doesn't mean they can't govern. -Jonathan Powell

I keep my feet on the ground because of my roots and the way I was raised. -Percy Sledge

He is the richest man who enriches his country most; in whom the people feel richest and proudest; who gives himself with his money; who opens the doors of opportunity widest to those about him; who is ears to the deaf, eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame. -Orison Swett Marden

When people ask me where my roots are, I look down at my feet, and I see the roots of my soul grasping the earth. They are here… in the Southwest… I still live in New Mexico. -Rudolfo Anaya

Ellis Island lies in New York Harbor 1,300 feet from Jersey City, New Jersey, and one mile from the tip of Manhattan. At the time of the first European settlement, it was mostly mud, sand, and oyster shells, which nearly disappeared at high tide. -David Souter

One of my feet is a whole size longer than the other. One is size ten, the other is size eleven. -Nnedi Okorafor

After 'Gremlins' came out, I should have packed up everything, moved to Los Angeles from New York, and dedicated myself to being a full time film actor. I had the world at my feet. -Zach Galligan

'The Crumbling of America' should be required viewing for local and national government, not to mention the local and national media who should be keeping their feet to the fire on guarding against disaster. -Rachel Sklar

Revising stuff lately, I was shocked to see how often my characters scratched their ankles, felt their feet, and touched their own ears. -Elizabeth McCracken

I spent the night on a sliver of rock high up on the east face of Long's Peak, climbing with Tom Frost, and slept at the icy feet of the Dru, listening to the lightning crack above me and the thunder roll down. I only did it to write about it. I would never go up on the Grotto Wall for fun. -James Salter

I had actually finished the manuscript of 'The Wild Trees' and turned it in to Random House when all of a sudden word came. Michael Taylor and his colleague, Chris Atkins, another explorer, have just knocked one out of the park. They found the world's tallest tree. The tree is named Hyperion, 379.1 feet tall. -Richard Preston

There is a difference between movie actors and TV acting, especially with movie stars, which is they know their face is 20 feet high on the screen. They know they don't have to do much. -Noah Hawley

I've always been an incredibly physically capable human being. I've always had good control of my body, walk a hundred feet on my hands, jump off rock wall and do a back flip into the sand. That's always been who I am. -Casey Neistat

Money is nothing really worth squabbling about. This is what puts people six feet under. You know, I don't need it. -Burt Shavitz

An Ebola particle is only around eighty nanometres wide and a thousand nanometres long. If it were the size of a piece of spaghetti, then a human hair would be about twelve feet in diameter and would resemble the trunk of a giant redwood tree. -Richard Preston

Stand at the base and look up at 3,000 feet of blankness. It just looks like there's no way you can climb it. That's what you seek as a climber. You want to find something that looks absurd and figure out how to do it. -Tommy Caldwell

The musicals that leave us kind of staggering on our feet are the ones that really reach for a lot. -Lin-Manuel Miranda

Oscar is the exact opposite of how I think you should behave. I just think of it as a negative view of the positive mind I have. Big Bird is sweet and nice and also sympathetic, as kids can identify with him even though he looks like such a bizarre character – great 8 feet 2 inches, a beak 18 inches long. -Caroll Spinney

'Smart', in American usage, is slicker and sharper than 'intelligent'; faster off the mark and quicker on its feet than deep thought. -Mal Peet

I bashed myself. I cut myself. I caught on fire. I fell: I had been myopically focused on peeling garlic, and hadn't noticed a bin of beef at my feet until I walked into it. -Bill Buford

I work in a small study on the top floor of a brownstone in Brooklyn – it's about 75 square feet, 11 taken up by book shelves along one wall. -Kathryn Harrison

About all that is needed to put the world on its feet are the right qualities of mind and heart on the part of all men. -Charles M. Schwab

I shall be well enough when I get to Kentucky or Alabama. The tonic I need is the tonic of opposition. That always sets me on my feet. -Dorothea Dix

I was, by divine grace, enabled to bring all my sins and all my sorrows and lay them at the feet of Jesus, and to receive the blessed assurance that He had accepted me, all sinful and polluted as I was. -Elijah Parish Lovejoy

Emancipation – what is meant by it? Simply that the slaves shall cease to be held as property and shall henceforth be held and treated as human beings. Simply, that we should take our feet from off their necks. -Elijah Parish Lovejoy

In an area of more than 1,000 war graves and with birdsong as the only sound, I contemplated the thin margin between life and death. If the sniper's bullet had been just two feet to one side, my father's life would have been over, aged just 27, and I would never have been born. -Michael Ashcroft

Why borrow if you are not in need of it? You must lend feet to the maximum of your bed only, and not to borrow except in the case of necessity. -Sulaiman Abdul Aziz Al Rajhi

Lincoln prevailed: wearing his green shawl in the White House and gripped with melancholy, his feet constantly cold, he preserved a nation that had begun to unravel, often holding it together with nothing more than the flat of his hand and his unfaltering sense of human worth. -Jerome Charyn

I played high school basketball at six feet, then I went to 5-11 in my 50's, and then, bang, I went down to 5-9. -Tom Brokaw

I weighed 25 stone, and I didn't stand nine feet tall, so the weight didn't sit well on me. As big as a house? No. I was as big as an estate. -Victor LaValle

I think it's also safe to say genre TV and movies were a big influence – the first stories I ever tried to write were Godzilla fan fiction when I was in elementary school, complete with elaborate maps of Monster Island made with multiple sheets of typing paper and nearly six feet wide. I kind of wish I still had those. -Martha Wells

Recent studies have shown that our creativity is increased by 60% when we're walking. I encourage my workshop participants to write at their desks but think on their feet. -Kate Klise

The vertigo is a difficult thing: it just comes and goes whenever it pleases. I wasn't expecting it. I've had it before, and there have been years between stretches, and unfortunately it happened at the U.S. Open, and that knocked me off my feet. -Jason Day

The situation of Leh is a grand one, the great Kailas range, with its glaciers and snowfields, rising just behind it to the north, its passes alone reaching an altitude of nearly 18,000 feet; while to the south, across a gravelly descent and the Indus Valley, rise great red ranges dominated by snow-peaks exceeding 21,000 feet in altitude. -Isabella Bird

The breadfruit is a superb tree, about 60 feet high, with deep green, shining leaves, a foot broad, sharply and symmetrically cut, worthy, from their exceeding beauty of form, to take the place of the acanthus in architectural ornament, and throwing their pale green fruit into delicate contrast. -Isabella Bird

The San Gabriel Mountains rise like a rampart at the edge of the city, safeguarding more than 500,000 acres of mature forests, mountain streams, dramatic waterfalls, and towering peaks that reach over 9,000 feet. These untamed places attract bighorn sheep, mountain lions, and other threatened or endangered species. -Frances Beinecke

I feel like when I do some dance moves during the week or at the house, I'm quicker on my feet. I can react quicker just from dancing. -Rob Gronkowski

I've done routes where I've climbed 200 feet off the ground and just been, like, 'What am I doing?' I then just climbed back down and went home. Discretion is the better part of valor. Some days are just not your day. That's the big thing with free soloing: when to call it. -Alex Honnold

At the crux of Half Dome, at the very top of the wall, imagine, like, a smooth wall of rock – a nearly vertical granite slap with tiny ripples for your hands and feet. And so you're really trusting the rubber on your shoes to stick to these ripples. -Alex Honnold

As a girl, I sat awestruck at the feet of Harriet Ne, author of 'Tales of Molokai'. It was she who used to say, 'I myself have seen it,' after telling a particularly hair-raising ghost story – a phrase that I borrowed for one of my titles. -Susanna Moore

No one is perfect in this world, and we all have our battles, but it's the way we get back on our feet and turn it around that really counts. -Tiffany Thornton

The problem with being married to an athlete who is, like, 19 feet tall and can just eat, like, 17 burgers at 11 o'clock at night is, you're like, 'I'll have just three of those burgers,' and you think you're being good because he had 19 and you had three! -Kaley Cuoco

Moms, take it from me: do not buy your baby too many shoes when they're so tiny, because their feet grow every week. -Ciara

Nobody put the camera on the background singers who were singing. It was on Stevie Wonder. It was on Elton John. It was on whoever was the lead singer out front. We were 20 feet from stardom. -Darlene Love

If age someday grounds my feet and wilts my port de bras, what vestige of the old life will be left? The signs that I was a dancer will gradually fade like stripes on a beach towel. Even my knowledge of the art form, reaped in sweat over decades, could be lost over time. -Sascha Radetsky

Satellite datasets like WorldView can see objects as small as 1.5 feet in diameter. In 2014, WorldView-3 will be able to see objects a small as a foot. -Sarah Parcak

Playing upside down is insane. It's two or three times more difficult than what's normal. Your feet want to come off the pedals, your arms want to drop down – all of your body is fighting gravity. -Tommy Lee

Of course drums weren't meant to be played other than sitting on the ground. When you're upside-down, your feet don't want to sit on the pedals. -Tommy Lee

To be absolutely alone for the first time in the cockpit of a plane hundreds of feet above the ground is an experience never to be forgotten. -Charles Lindbergh

'SVU' is one of my favorite shows. When I got the call to appear and play myself, I jumped at the chance. Obviously, I went over my lines, but playing yourself is a really great way to get your feet wet in the acting field. I enjoyed being on set and learning as much as I could about the scripted world. -Taylor Hicks

I love New York. I'm working on Broadway, and it's a great way for me to get my feet wet in acting and a great way to season yourself as a performer. -Taylor Hicks

The Kwajalein waters are incredibly lucid: vision typically up to three hundred feet. -Dennis L. McKiernan

Dartmoor proper consists of that upland region of granite, rising to nearly 2,000 feet above the sea, and actually shooting above that height at a few points, which is the nursery of many of the rivers of Devon. -Sabine Baring-Gould

In the depths of the moor, the peat may be seen riven like floes of ice, and the rifts are sometimes twelve to fourteen feet deep, cut through black vegetable matter, the product of decay of plants through countless generations. -Sabine Baring-Gould

I was 5' 10 when I was 14, skinny and flat, with huge feet, and I never had a boyfriend. -Jerry Hall

Nothing is nearer to us than heaven. The earth is beneath our feet, and we tread upon it, but heaven is within us. -Nikos Kazantzakis

Whenever I go to have a meeting at Universal, the security guard just leaps to his feet and comes over, bumps my hand, and says, 'Thank you! Thank you – I love your films!' -Wes Craven

Distributers don't need massive amounts of square feet to stock digital products. Retailers don't need brick-and-mortar stores to sell them. The entire supply chain for these select items has been permanently dematerialized. The marketplace has been blown to bits. -Jay Samit

The fact is, after a certain age, high heels can feel as painful as someone sticking hot pins into the soles of your feet. -Marie Helvin

Baseball is a movable conversation across nine innings. It is eye contact with the person seated next to you in a park where the pitcher is separated from the batter by 60 feet, six inches or in a family room where a 60-inch TV screen hangs on the wall. -Mike Barnicle

My kitchen in New York City is in the Richard Meier building on Perry Street, so it's ultra-modern: white, glass and transparent. It's 180 square feet, with an induction stove. Everything's hidden, so you don't see the microwave or the fridge. -Jean-Georges Vongerichten

I had a job transcribing a biotechnology-litigation seminar. You put headphones on and fast-forward and stop with your feet. There were a lot of 'um's.' -Adam Schlesinger

I think I've changed my business strategy every year since 2003. You have to be watching the horizon constantly. The rug has been pulled out from under our feet so many times. -John Allison

The United States lost the nuclear-powered submarine Thresher 100 miles east of Cape Cod in 1963, and the submarine Scorpion sank in 1968 in more than 10,000 feet of water 400 miles southwest of the Azores. -Andrew Rosenthal

When I was younger, my feet would hurt a lot, but you build up calluses and strength, and you don't feel as much pain there. But then again, it's a give and take. The older you get, you may feel pain in your back or your hips. -Misty Copeland

If the rhythm or beat of the music changes with a live orchestra, you have to think on your feet. If you feel like you are not on your leg, you have to make a decision to make it look as though nothing is going wrong. -Misty Copeland

The calluses on your feet in space will eventually fall off. So, the bottoms of your feet become very soft like newborn baby feet. But the top of my feet develop rough alligator skin because I use the top of my feet to get around here on space station when using foot rails. -Scott Kelly

My album is very uplifting and positive and fun. That was my mission – to get people up on their feet and escape the seriousness of life. -Fleur East

I've got a little arthritis that I have to deal with. I was 6 feet 7 when I started, and I've shrunk up a little bit. I'm probably 6-5 or so now. But up here at 82, I feel pretty good. I'm sticking in there. -James Arness

Mastered by deadly passions, Rigaud has dug a gulf at your feet; he has laid snares which you could not avoid. He wished to have you as partisans in his revolt; and to succeed in his object, he has employed falsehood and seduction. -Toussaint Louverture

I have no desire to put my feet up. Why would I? -Morley Safer

I do not like the human race. I don't like their heads, I don't like their faces, I don't like their feet, I don't like their conversations, I don't like their hairdos, I don't like their automobiles. -Charles Bukowski

As soon as a redwood is cut down or burned, it sends up a crowd of eager, hopeful shoots, which, if allowed to grow, would in a few decades attain a height of a hundred feet, and the strongest of them would finally become giants as great as the original tree. -John Muir

The earth's crust has not yet stopped heaving and plunging under our feet. Mountain ranges are still being thrust up on the horizon. Granites are still growing under the continental masses. Nor has the organic world ceased to produce new buds at the tips of its countless branches. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

A border collie saved me once when I was pinned under a horse in Colorado. And once when I went through the ice, one of my sled dogs saw me go under, and she got the rest of the team, and they pulled me out of 12 feet of water. I think that dogs offer the only form of unconditional love that's available to humans. -Gary Paulsen

Growing up, I had only one good pair of shoes. So on rainy school days, my mom would slip plastic bread bags over them to keep them dry. But I was never embarrassed. Because the school bus would be filled with rows and rows of young Iowans with bread bags slipped over their feet. -Joni Ernst

I wish someone had put a golf club in my hands, not skates on my feet. It is a really great game for business. It's a great game for making connections. -Condoleezza Rice

People have choices. They are going to vote with their feet. -Tom Perez

America is the greatest country on Earth – and when people vote with their feet, they come here. -Michael Bloomberg

I don't like one-foot jumpers like LeBron James. It looks better jumping off two feet. Every time Michael Jordan jumped off two feet, it looked so much better. -Nate Robinson

I have severe claustrophobia, and I panic if I'm more than six feet above ground. -Daniel Espinosa

I've stayed in hotels where you were scared to even put your feet on the floor, or had to sleep in a chair. -Peter Hook

I started working full time as a comedian in 2005, shortly after we did the Vince Vaughn 'Wild West Comedy Show.' I worked at the Four Seasons hotel from 1998 to 2005, so about seven years, just trying to put some food on the table and pay the rent while I went out to the open mics and got my feet wet with stand-up comedy. -Sebastian Maniscalco

Conan O'Brien's the best. I'm glad he's in L.A. because I want to move in with him. I was a guest on that show one time to promote 'Human Giant,' and he was the coolest, funniest guy. I was really impressed. He's also eight feet tall and can shoot lightning from his fingertips. -Rob Huebel

Mice are very difficult to do front on, but they have nicely human little hands and feet, and whiskers and tails are great for expressing emotion. -Helen Craig

Hundreds of years ago, the most beautiful women of Havana were only glimpsed stepping in or out of carriages on this street. The first foreign writers who arrived and saw this could never get past just how incredibly beautiful their feet were. -Brin-Jonathan Butler

I come from a long line of people who express themselves through the dance. I come from a long line of people who create music through their feet. -Savion Glover

I started as a drummer. The feet are an extension of that. -Savion Glover

It's as if my left heel is my bass drum and my right heel is the floor tom-tom. I can get snare out of my right toe by not putting it down on the floor hard, and, if I want cymbals, I land flat on both feet, full strength on the floor. -Savion Glover

My mom couldn't afford dance shoes, so she put me in these old cowboy boots with a hard bottom so I could get some sound out. I used them for seven months. When I finally got real tap shoes, I was nervous. I kept moving my feet, thinking, 'Oh, so this is how it's supposed to sound.' -Savion Glover

I dance anywhere. I just start moving my feet. -Savion Glover

The Nicholas Brothers were the best tap-dancers. I'm not talking about their flash-dancing, I'm talking about tap-dancing. They were really saying something with their feet. -Savion Glover

The climbs up the Hand of Fatima, which is 2,000 feet, and Naga Parbat, which is just over 15,000 feet, were spectacular. The Hand of Fatima and the Kaga Tondo, in Mali, is a personal favourite of mine. -Jimmy Chin

You do wonder – when you are at 28,000 feet, the height that aeroplanes cruise at, when you are struggling to draw breath and every limb aches – why do I do this? -Jimmy Chin

Most birds are very stiff-necked, like the robin, and as they run or hop upon the ground, carry the head as if it were riveted to the body. Not so the oven-bird, or the other birds that walk, as the cow-bunting, or the quail, or the crow. They move the head forward with the movement of the feet. -John Burroughs

Man takes root at his feet, and at best, he is no more than a potted plant in his house or carriage till he has established communication with the soil by the loving and magnetic touch of his soles to it. -John Burroughs

I'm 5 feet 3, but I was 6 feet 4 when I married Ava. -Mickey Rooney

What dinosaur traits are missing from an ostrich? The ostrich has a toothless beak, but there are mutations that cause teeth and claws to come back to their mouth and limbs. You need to replace the feathers with scales, but there are no feathers on their legs and feet, so you just need to make its whole body like its legs are. -George M. Church

I was a commercial girl. In drama school, I was a mediocre model occasionally to pick up some extra cash, and because clearly I'm not six feet tall, and I had baby weight, I would mainly just would do promotional stuff. -Lake Bell

I hope to stay light on my feet, to work in many modes, to seek inspiration always, and avoid the fatal. But, as we all know, it is the price of life to burn out, both metaphorically and literally. -T. C. Boyle

I played rugby in the winter, cricket in the summer, and for a brief period was on the books at Cardiff City. Athletics was only sports day for me. In fact, I never really liked it. I was never too keen on a sport that didn't have a ball at your feet. -Lynn Davies

What I'll say is that Cuban-Americans don't have to deal with the same immigration issues as other nationalities because of the 'wet feet, dry feet' policy. For Cubans, one year after you touch United States territory, you can become a legal resident. -Jorge Ramos

I think we can create an environment where America can kind of get back on its economic feet. -Bill Flores

The 2012 superstorm known as Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc beyond the Eastern Seaboard and reached Northeast Ohio as well, with heavy rain, wind gusts of nearly 70 miles per hour and waves on Lake Erie reaching 15 to 18 feet. -Marcia Fudge

For the life of me, I can't understand why BP couldn't go in at the ocean floor, maybe 10 feet lateral to the – around the periphery, drill a few holes, and put a little ammonium nitrate, some dynamite, in those holes and detonate that dynamite and seal that – seal that leak. And seal it permanently. -Phil Gingrey

As a judge, when I saw veterans in legal trouble, I created the state's first veterans court to help them get treatment and get back on their feet. -Ann Callis

I walk out to my backyard garden at certain times of the year, and I can't get 30 feet without stopping for 20 minutes because the goumis need trimming. -Ross Gay

Working in a gun store is hard on your feet and your back. -Jeanne Marie Laskas

Drake's home is its own fantasia, a single-level ranch that sprawls in various wings over 7,500 square feet, from the game room to the gym to Drake's master bedroom with Jacuzzi. The pool is like a scene out of Waterworld, with a bar inside a grotto, waterfalls, and a slide that drops thirty feet through the rock. -Michael Paterniti

Roja Dove – who, at 58, is a stock-straight six feet and handsome with lantern jaw, blue eyes, and impeccably combed silvering hair on the sides of an otherwise tanned bald head – may possess the finest nose in the world. -Michael Paterniti

Ring Kuot, a 15-year-old Sudanese boy, was rumored to be eight feet three. And until Leonid's emergence at eight feet four inches last spring, people generally assumed that Radhouane Charbib of Tunisia, at seven feet nine, was the tallest documented man in the world. -Michael Paterniti

New York is still the most glamorous city I've ever been to, but it's starting to feel older. The sirens still wail; the paths in Central Park still pulsate with joggers. The Manhattan schist still trembles beneath your feet. But weirdly, it's starting to feel, dare I say it, a bit quaint. -Tom Hollander

Quite often, we're swamped with friends. My house is known as Hotel Morrissey, which is quite handy whenever I need dog-sitters for Tiggy. She's my tiny little rescue dog, the size of both of my feet put together. -Neil Morrissey

You come to our stadium and look at the aura of 100,000 people. You look up there and see an Army tank coming at you. You see it on a TV screen, it's one thing. You see it at a movie theater, that's something else. When that thing's coming at you 70 feet high and 180 feet long, now that looks like a tank. -Jerry Jones

I've been six feet tall since the sixth grade. -Leslie Jones

You can look good. Don't let nobody tell you you can't look good because of your size… or what size your feet is. -Leslie Jones

Men don't know how to act like men sometimes. Take the trash out. Open up the door. Rub my feet. I mean, it's a two-way street! -Loni Love

I believe that Christianity in the United States has been dragging its feet, and I don't think there's any other force in America that has been more detrimental to the solution of our racial problems than Christianity. -Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.

I've always thought like I'm really a 3-feet-high comic trapped in a leading man's body… but then I played Nicholas Nickleby, and suddenly I was heroic. -Roger Rees

There is Rio in 2016, but it won't be the same as going to London and hearing 24,000 people – nearly all British – cheering, stamping their feet, and screaming your name. -Charlotte Dujardin

I've never turned to anybody for advice and counsel. Even when I was a very small child, I had to stand on my feet because of the circumstances of those times, and somehow, the circumstances have remained more or less the same. I have to take my own decisions. -Indira Gandhi

You win with your feet. It looks easy, and it's not. -Venus Williams

Freshman year, I was 95 pounds and 4 feet 10 inches. So you can imagine what my football uniform looked like – my shoulder pads were bigger than my body! -Casper Smart

I don't think my husband's work depends on what I say and what I do. My husband stands on his own two feet. -Rula Ghani

My husband stands on his own two feet; my religion is not a factor. God created and decided for me to be born in a Christian family. It's not every day that a Lebanese marries an Afghan. I think God's hand is also in there. -Rula Ghani

Instead of investing our resources in locking people up, let's invest more of those resources in our fellow citizens so they don't end up in the system to begin with. And if they do, they can get back on their feet. -John Legend

I ended up writing songs and growing up in public with my songwriting. And it's a good thing for me back then: in the early '70s, there was a thing called artist development, where an artist could find his feet, find himself, find his voice. I think I made five or six albums before I sold five or six albums. -John Mellencamp

I'm quite shy, really. The figure you see on TV, that's just a persona. I like getting home, putting my feet up, getting into my slippers and dressing gown. -Paul Hollywood

I don't have the best feet. -Alicia Vikander

During my first open ocean dive, I went down to 800 feet and turned out the lights. I knew I would see bioluminescence, but I was totally unprepared for how much. It was incredible! There were explosions of light everywhere, like being in the middle of a silent fireworks display. -Edith Widder

If I go out in the open ocean environment, virtually anywhere in the world, and I drag a net from 3,000 feet to the surface, most of the animals – in fact, in many places, 80 to 90 percent of the animals that I bring up in that net – make light. This makes for some pretty spectacular light shows. -Edith Widder

Finding animals that make light in the ocean is easy. Just drag a net through the water anywhere in the upper 3000 feet, and as many as 80-90% of the animals you catch can make light. The biomimetic lure that I developed imitates one of these – a common deep sea jellyfish called Atolla. -Edith Widder

I am like the sick sheep that strays from the rest of the flock. Unless the Good Shepherd takes me on His shoulders and carries me back to His fold, my steps will falter, and in the very effort of rising, my feet will give way. -St. Jerome

I was 175 pounds at 13 years old and 5 feet tall. -Jillian Michaels
