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

What I would argue in my defence is that shows like 'Britain's Got Talent' and 'The X Factor' have actually got people more interested in music again and are sending more people into record stores. -Simon Cowell

The idea that I have to be on the same side of the fence as Dan Quayle is cruelly depressing to me, but the truth is, I believe in family values. -Harold Prince

I have been described by one of my colleagues as a 'militant agnostic' with my tagline, 'I don't know, and neither do you!' I take this hard-line, fence-sitting position because it is the only position consistent with both my scientific ethos and my conscience. -Brian Schmidt

The thing that happens is that politicians run on tough-on-crime rhetoric. You appeal to the public and say, 'Let's put more money into taller fences, tougher laws, tougher sentencing, handcuffs,' and where does that money come from? Well, immediately, it comes out of all the money needed for corrections. -Eugene Jarecki

In Australia, we point out a person's weaknesses as a way of saying 'I see you and I accept you'. If you do that with Americans, they instantly take offence. -Andrew Dominik

My suggestion to newspapers everywhere is to give the public a reason to read them again. So here's an idea: get on a big story with widespread public appeal, devote your best resources to it, say a quiet prayer, and swing for the fences. -Graydon Carter

A decent government with an effective, but not gratuitously violent, police force and a fair court system are essential. This deters and incapacitates psychopaths, bullies and hotheads – and if it earns the confidence of the people, they don't have to become violent in self-defence. -Steven Pinker

It's time for women to wake up, to use the power of the vote, to honor the suffragists who chained themselves to the White House fence so that women could vote. -Madeleine M. Kunin

O most merciful Father, put far from me all my iniquities and all my offences; so that, by Thee made whole in body and in soul, I may be accounted worthy to approach the Holy of holies. -Saint Ambrose

When I was a kid I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I did know what I didn't want to do. I didn't want to grow up, have 2.2 kids, get married, the whole white picket fence thing. -Jody Williams

Some people get very confused about my game. They think it's better if the court is slow, because I have a good defence. But the faster it is, the better for me. My spin is more painful for my opponents, my aggressive game works better. -Rafael Nadal

Until I was about 14, I was a fat boy, or at least I looked like a fat boy. I think that being funny was a bit of a defence mechanism for me, so I ended up being a bit of a joker. -Pippa Evans

I'm in love with red. I think it's such a passionate color. Every flag of every country pretty much has red it it. It's power, there's no fence sitting with red. Either you love it or you don't. I think its blood and strength and life. I do love red. I love all colors. Great shades of blue, you find them in nature. They're all magic. -Bryan Batt

Life is not living in the suburbs with a white picket fence. That's not life. Somehow our American culture has made it out that that's what life needs to be – and that if it's not that, it's all screwed up. It's not. -Tom Brady

The modern believer is not suspicious enough, which is perhaps why, when they try to construct arguments in their defence, the convictions are left doing all the work and reason, debilitated by neglect, weakly fails to prop them up. -Julian Baggini

It's true that youth is wasted on the young and, if I had my life to live over again, I suppose I would pay more attention to my career. I would make better choices. But, in my defence, I would say that I have three wonderful children, and that's something I am very proud of. -Olivia Hussey

Offence is important; that's how you know you care about things. Imagine a life where you're not offended. So dull. -Marcus Brigstocke

Going to religious places gives me clarity. When I am sitting there, I am in a state of gratitude with my defence mechanism down and am open to receiving that energy, that gives me clarity as at that time, you are listening to your heart. The heart shows you the direction in life. The mind exists only to execute your emotion. -Arjun Rampal

I never expected anyone to take care of me, but in my wildest dreams and juvenile yearnings, I wanted the house with the picket fence from June Allyson movies. I knew that was yearning like one yearns to fly. -Maya Angelou

Let go of offence. Let go of fear. Let go of revenge. Don't live angry, let go now! -Joel Osteen

I don't live by all these rigid, weird rules that make me feel all fenced in. I just like the way that I feel like, and that makes me feel very free. -Taylor Swift

You try to – you want to fly on both sides of the political fence because that's where the – where the comedy is. -Denis Leary

I'm now the elder in the position of doling out wisdom and trying to mend fences. -Jane Fonda

The neighborhood I grew up in had this fence that surrounds the watershed. And if you go on the other side of that fence, there's nothing until the North Pole and down to Siberia. It's the absolute cutoff point between man and nature. -Douglas Coupland

I did think of becoming a priest quite late on, when other boys were thinking of knocking over fences and going out with girls. I would have made a very good bishop: nice housekeeper, nice clothes – god, the clothes. -Colm Toibin

Because I could throw so hard when I got to college, they made me a pitcher. If I had to it all over again, I would have stuck to playing in the outfield. I loved running. I can catch everything in the outfield. I could throw people out from the fence. -Shemar Moore

When grand plans for scientific and defence technologies are made, do the people in power think about the sacrifices the people in the laboratories and fields have to make? -A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

A good breeder or experienced rescue agency wants you to prove that you'll be a capable caretaker. The interrogation and screening can be annoying, but it's also a sign that you're on the right track. A breeder ought to know if you work long hours away from home, have a fenced yard, have kids or other animals, or if you have access to parks. -Jon Katz

I spend the entire 90 minutes looking for space on the pitch. I'm always between the opposition's two holding midfielders and thinking, 'The defence is here, so I get the ball and I go there to where the space is.' -Xavi

A people morally and intellectually equal to self-government must also be equal in self-defence. -Jefferson Davis

We need to know who's in the United States. We need to know everyone who's in the United States that comes in here from a foreign country. And we have to separate the ones who are dangerous from the ones who aren't. To accomplish that, we need a fence. We need a technological fence. We need a border patrol. -Rudy Giuliani

Keeping it all together as a modern woman means multitasking, especially when you work. I think you always need to try your best, but at the same time you can only do what you can do, and you don't need to beat yourself up about it. I'm not white-picket-fence perfect. -Heidi Klum

The Patriot missile is a point defence missile. Point defence means that you put the missile at a location to defend a very specific target such as an airfield, a supply dump or a headquarters. -Norman Schwarzkopf

Buckwheat, like Marmite and durian, is a seriously divisive foodstuff, so it needs a seriously capable defence team if it's ever going to make it on to most people's dinner tables. -Yotam Ottolenghi

Vatican City is a bit overrated in my opinion – no offence to the Vatican. -Ed Stoppard

Everything in Russia is made of cement – phone booths, fence posts and light bulbs. -Ian Frazier

Young people especially sometimes feel that the standards of the Lord are like fences and chains, blocking them from those activities that seem most enjoyable in life. -Ezra Taft Benson

Downhillers are going over 110 miles per hour. But no matter what, you can't hit the fence at 100 miles per hour. -Julia Mancuso

By August 2008, we had left Voikovskaya and moved into a wooden dacha in the artists' colony of Sokol in north-west Moscow. The house was a haven amid the madness of the city: lily of the valley grew near our front gate, Virginia creeper decked the green picket fence. -Luke Harding

If I'm jetlagging, and I've missed some meals, and it gets to that point in a movie that you're supposed to cry, I'll let my defences down from around my inherent standing level of cynicism, and I'll cry. -Henry Rollins

I make terrible jokes every time I go into a hospital. I think it's a defence mechanism. -Sanjeev Bhaskar

There is nothing like Ruth ever existed in this game of baseball. I remember we were playing the White Sox in Boston in 1919, and he hit a home run off Lefty Williams over the left-field fence in the ninth inning and won the game. It was majestic. It soared. -Waite Hoyt

When I walked out on the mound, I felt enclosed. You see, I'd been used to playing on pastures, where when somebody hit a ball you had to stop it from rolling. Well, this field had fences around it. -Ted Lyons

The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot forever fence it out. -J. R. R. Tolkien

Quite honestly, if we do manage to destroy the planet with our devil-may-care attitude to natural resources, I'd suggest we leave, as a dossier in our defence, the collected letters to agony aunts and uncles down the generations. It would certainly prove that we weren't all bad! -Mariella Frostrup

When you're 40, you can't ride the fence anymore. You gotta make definite decisions about your life. -Dolly Parton

Everyone saw me on TV or read articles, and it was all about my great marriage, the white picket fence, all this success and my perfect life. But behind the scenes, it was a struggle. -Lindsey Vonn

The target of preventive war must have several characteristics. It must be virtually defenceless; it must be important enough to be worth the trouble; it must be possible to portray it as the ultimate evil and an imminent threat to our survival. -Noam Chomsky

When you're taking a fence on a horse, you don't think much; your body does all the thinking, and you're over or you're not over. It's much the same when you are doing a tricky thing with a pen. There are times when I'm writing very, very fast. -Patrick O'Brian

Killing a baby seal is about the easiest thing you can do if you're inclined to be sadistic; you certainly can't say there's any sport in it – the animal is totally defenceless. -Paul Watson

From the beginning of my time as Secretary-General, I have sought to advance a practical, action-oriented vision of the U.N. as the voice of the voiceless and the defender of the defenceless. -Ban Ki-moon

You can choose not to sit on the fence. You can choose not to criticise. You must stand as guard at the door of your own mind and choose to be positive. -Gail Kelly

The merit of 'The Spy Who Came in from the Cold,' then – or its offence, depending where you stood – was not that it was authentic, but that it was credible. -John le Carre

We have ministers who are incapable of doing what has been ordered from above because there is no follow up, because there are no consequences. If you are poor man and you steal, your hand is cut off after three offences. But if you are a rich man, nobody will say anything to you. -Basmah bint Saud

Cheney was among the best secretaries of defence the country has ever had. He was a very effective White House chief of staff. He did not make many enemies, and he had the ability to persuade people with that soft tone and very reasonable style of his. He's always been exceptionally good as the right-hand man. -Barton Gellman

This arrogance thing… I've had that my whole life. I flip between, 'Oh really? Oh, thank you. Wow. That's amazing' and, 'Yeah! Of course I am.' They're both varying degrees of a self-defence mechanism. It can be from minute to minute that I change. -James Corden

One reason you should not use web applications to do your computing is that you lose control. It's just as bad as using a proprietary program. Do your own computing on your own computer with your copy of a freedom-respecting program. If you use a proprietary program or somebody else's web server, you're defenceless. -Richard Stallman

No one has the right to detract the attention of the nation from the defence of the country. -Ivica Dacic

I take the work seriously. Which is why I always swing for the fences whenever I voice a character. But that said, I don't take myself all that seriously. -Jim Cummings

I know that, as a bisexual, sometimes people who are gay or lesbian look down upon the bisexual community as well and assume that people who are bisexual just don't know what they want or are just playing both sides of the fence, and that's not the case, either. -Crystal Bowersox

People seem to take as much offence as they possibly can these days – it's almost a new type of greed, a new kind of road rage. -Michael Leunig

Humans are nervous, touchy creatures and can be easily offended. Many are deeply insecure. They become focused and energized by taking offence; it makes them feel meaningful and alive. -Michael Leunig

I went to work for the Civil Service. I'd wanted to work for the Ministry of Defence because I had some far-fetched idea that it had something to do with the Avengers, but I ended up in Social Security. -Paul O'Grady

By confirming the importance of politics and politicians in Britain, we can build from the bottom up and begin to reverse the worrying anti-politics trend, which will empower the elite technocrats and leave defenceless the man or woman in the street with a mere vote to cast. -David Blunkett

I grew up in Arizona. I love it. I'm a part of the desert. I feel like, really, I'm from the Sonoran Desert, which is – extends to both sides of the border. I'm really from that part of Mexico, also. And I hate that there's a fence, you know, running through it. -Linda Ronstadt

I think there is no defending a title. You don't go into a season with a points advantage over anyone. So I don't think it's ever a title defence. I think you've got a different number on your bike, if you choose so, but everyone starts at zero again. -Casey Stoner

I was in Estonia when a professor asked me if I was aware that making any criticism of the Red Army during the war was now an imprisonable offence. I was quite shaken. -Antony Beevor

I don't get into these petty things, Kentucky-Louisville. To me, it's nonsense… There will be people at Kentucky that will have a nervous breakdown if they lose to us… They've got to put the fences up on bridges. There will be people consumed by Louisville. -Rick Pitino

I admire politicians. It is a really tough assignment, and I would fall at the first fence. -Joanna Lumley

I would always treat my attacking game as the more natural part. With defence, you have to get yourself in positions to understand the game and understand situations and that might not be as natural a thing. -Brian O'Driscoll

You can't rely on your defence to win a World Cup. -Brian O'Driscoll

When I was thirteen years old, I didn't exactly discover epic fantasy on my own. I acquired it as a social defence mechanism. -Tansy Rayner Roberts

The word 'religion' is only a label. What lies behind that, the most important thing of all, is the word 'faith'. You either have faith, or you don't have faith, or you have degrees of faith – and if you have degrees of faith, then you become agnostic. You're kind of in-between, or you're on the fence. -Ridley Scott

It's about who owns the servers. The servers that store your metrics. The servers that shout the ads. The servers that transmit your chat. The servers that geofence your every movement. -Raph Koster

Most Americans are fiscally conservative and socially liberal. I'm advocating a balanced budget. But along with that, look, there should be gay marriage equality. A woman should have the right to choose. Let's not build a fence across the border. -Gary Johnson

In commendably seeking to protect freedom of speech, we must not lower our defences against the evil of racial and religious intolerance. -Barry O'Farrell

I have mended fences with both my sisters. But do I have their families on my side? Not easily. My one sister, Florence, has two lawyers in the family and two doctors. Of course, I couldn't win that battle. -Manuel Moroun

Steven Adler and I played football in the street when we were 12. I remember rehearsing in my bedroom with my first band, and some kid climbed over the fence of my backyard and peeked his head in the window to see who was rocking. It was Slash. -Flea

Our experience shows that security does not lie in weapons or fences or armies. -Óscar Arias

Every sport has its dangers. I've been pretty lucky, knock on wood. But I've had really confident, brave and smart horses growing up, which I think is important when you're young. You are working with massive animals over big fences, and especially at this top level, there is really no room for error. -Jessica Springsteen

I write narrative nonfiction, creating lively scenes through action and the use of quotes from firsthand accounts, all based on rigorous research. If I say a character leaned against a fence on a windy day, than I have at least two sources to back up these details. -Jim Murphy

Defence must be more adaptable, able to respond quickly to the changes in the security environment and the character of conflict. -Bob Ainsworth

I was Minister for the Armed Forces in the Ministry of Defence for two years prior to being appointed Defence Secretary. -Bob Ainsworth

I have always had a keen interest in defence and military history and read more on this subject than anything else. -Bob Ainsworth

As the Chief of the Defence Staff says, you don't defend on the goal line. Defending the interests of the U.K. means tackling threats early and at source, and that means intervening overseas. -Bob Ainsworth

I am extremely honoured to be the Defence Secretary, and I would not do the job if I did not think that I could make a useful contribution in the role. -Bob Ainsworth

The best defence against mafia business is full declaration of assets and incomes. -Milos Zeman

If you build a car, you can only sell it once. If you paint a fence, you only get paid for it once. If you create a piece of software that's essentially free to reproduce, you can keep getting paid over and over perpetually. -Markus Persson

Back when I was young, lists seemed like fences on the open range. But secretly, I was pleased to be corralled among other literary thoroughbreds. -Clive Sinclair

I am a big fan of music in general. I listen to all genres: hip-hop, R&B, whatever sounds good to me; it doesn't matter to me where it comes from – there are no boundaries, no fences. If I like it, then it will inspire me to create. -Stephen Marley

I always thought it was a goat that kicked me over the fence. My mama told me the other day it was a cow. Now I'm sort of scared of both. -Kelsea Ballerini

The racism of the Nazis threatened to make whatever we had experienced look like child's play. If they could be so brutal to the Jews, what would they do to the blacks? So large numbers of black young men and women rallied to the defence of the empire. -Peter Abrahams

Bofors was a steelmaker that became a forgings company and then went on to build guns. Companies like Krupp and Thyssen were in steel and forgings before entering defence. There are similar examples in the U.K.; it is a natural progression. -Baba Kalyani

India has the capability to create a fairly extensive defence manufacturing capability in many areas, and as a country and as an industry, we have matured in terms of technology and capability to make this happen. -Baba Kalyani

We need to just study what other countries have done. There are examples of a strong partnership between the defence establishment and the private industry. -Baba Kalyani

We passionately set up a programme that we call the Indian gun programme. I challenged Colonel Bhatia, who heads our defence business, that let's build an Indian gun. There's a belief that Indian companies aren't capable of this, and we want to prove them wrong, as we did in components. -Baba Kalyani

There is a feeling within our system that defence equipment can't be made here and should be imported. I wanted to break this myth, so we spent our money and made a product to prove we have capability in this country, so don't just brush us aside. -Baba Kalyani

India is the second biggest defence procurer in the world after the U.S. -Baba Kalyani

Imams must ridicule Caliphate fantasies. Exchange programmes between Muslim-only schools and non-Muslim-majority schools should be initiated. Community-based debates around these themes must no longer be shut down from fear of offence. -Maajid Nawaz

Stories are the common ground that allow people to connect, despite all our defences and all our differences. -Kate Forsyth

I was fourteen, watching 'The Princess Bride' for the 254321th time, captivated by Wesley and Inigo dueling on the cliff-top. I had never held a sword in my life, but I phoned my mum and said, 'I want to learn to fence!' -V. E. Schwab

I may have had a prejudice against agnosticism as a body of thought: sort of a fence-sitting theory, where you can't make up your mind one way or another. -S. T. Joshi

The tradition is a fence around the law; tithes are a fence around riches; vows are a fence around abstinence; a fence around wisdom is silence. -Akiva ben Joseph

In the spring of 1984, I was crushed not to make my Little League All-Star team. I will not go into too much detail, but imagine all your best friends were invited to a one-month party, and you weren't. You could watch it from afar but never get past the fence line. It was an early and abrupt welcome to adolescent loneliness. -Brian Shactman

It is the right of a democratically elected parliament to act in defence of our traditional liberties, and everything should be done to keep it that way. -Jeremy Corbyn

We can build the fence. We can triple the border patrol. We can end sanctuary cities by cutting off funding to them. We can end welfare for those here illegally. -Ted Cruz

The strong should always permit the weak and aggrieved to talk, to bluster, and scold without taking offence; and if we had so acted, and exercised proper skill in the management of our affairs, Mexico and ourselves would, by this time, have quietly and peaceably settled all difficulties and been good friends. -John C. Calhoun

I don't think kids have a problem reading books meant for adults; the problem is on the other side of the fence, a misconception of what one kind of literature is 'supposed' to be, perceived to be, as opposed to another: if it's for kids, it can't be any good; it's got to have been dumbed down and/or sweetened up. -Kathe Koja

Broccoli is incredible. It can prevent DNA damage and metastatic cancer spread; activate defences against pathogens and pollutants; help to prevent lymphoma; boost the enzymes that detox your liver; target breast cancer stem cells; and reduce the risk of prostate cancer progression. -Michael Greger

Morality arose largely as an empirical defence of the individual and society. Ever since intelligent beings began to be in contact, and consequently in friction, they have felt the need to guard themselves against each other's encroachments. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

A good boxing competition gives one the sight of fine men in their prime, trained to the ounce, showing the highest skill, pluck and endurance in carrying out their attack and defence under strict rules of fair play and good temper. -Robert Baden-Powell

The reason why Broken Men only became Untouchables was because in addition to being Buddhists, they retained their habit of beef-eating, which gave additional ground for offence to the Brahmins to carry their new-found love and reverence to the cow to its logical conclusion. -B. R. Ambedkar

You might have a great fence, a great shoot, run, and swim, but you might get a dodgy horse. Each country supplies the horse; you get 20 minutes to warm up with it, and then you have to do the jumping course. Pentathlon's difficult because everything has to come together. -Chloe Esposito

We have found that the Ministry of Defence was slow in responding to the threat of improvised explosive devices and that delays in providing adequate medium-weight protected patrol vehicles should not have been tolerated. -John Chilcot

The European Army is our long-term goal. But first we have to strengthen the European Defence Union. -Angela Merkel

I can't imagine that I would be the person I am today if, over the last seven years, I had been married to somebody who didn't feel 100 percent comfortable with my drive, my ambition, my interest in thinking big and swinging for the fences. -Ivanka Trump

I believe the friendship of the Games still exists. There is a tremendous camaraderie and atmosphere at the Olympic and Commonwealth Games – where else could you go and sit down and have breakfast with a Russian weightlifter, an East German sprinter, and an Indian fencer and talk about different cultures and problems? -Lynn Davies

As you ride in a steeplechase, and you're on the horse, going quite fast, you think, 'That's quite a big fence…' But trust the horse, and don't give him any reason to doubt you. -Victoria Pendleton

There aren't any fences to the imagination, and so there shouldn't be any for books. -Matt Haig

There was once this viral photo of the Pope doing his Pope-mobile parade, and everyone had their phones up. But there was this one old woman looking over the fence so beautifully at him. She was totally in the moment. For me, then, I think there shouldn't be any phones at a Pope-mobile situation – or at a Beyonce concert. -Chrissy Teigen

I don't mind causing offence when I intend to, but I don't like causing it accidentally. -Stewart Lee

The idea of what's acceptable and what's shocking, that's where I investigate. I mean, you can't be on 'Top Gear,' where your only argument is that it's all just a joke and anyone who takes offence is an example of political correctness gone mad, and then not accept the counterbalance to that. -Stewart Lee

Controversy seems to be a by-product of what I do, rather like offence is the by-product of a dog urinating on the pavement. It just happens. -Stewart Lee

The Virgin Birth is possible if there is a God. An Omnipotent Being who can do all things and yet cannot do some things is hardly worth our attack or defence. -Vincent McNabb

Metal, I love metal sounds. If I have a stick with me, I just drag it across a fence. And all fences make different sounds, just like people when they laugh. -Aurora

We should play free football, defend lively with a passion, and have the best understanding in offence. -Jurgen Klopp

Netanyahu must mend fences with Obama. -Reuven Rivlin

I did quite a lot of fencing when I was a kid. I was a swimmer, and I played a lot of basketball. I was a fencer for Great Britain, but I only did that because I watched 'Robin Hood,' 'Star Wars,' 'Highlander' and 'The Three Musketeers,' and I wanted to emulate Richard Harris and the great British actors that I grew up watching. -Kieran Bew

I'm sorry – I know America is supposed to be the land of the dreams and hopes, but it's like, when was that actually a real thing? I think from the very beginning it was all a lie, and it still kind of is. Stop trying to sell the picket fence, because there's another backyard here that you haven't looked at. -Sasha Lane

If you're going to do something that's going to cause offence to people, you're always going to get a reaction. -Irvine Welsh

It was everyone going up there to swing for the fences, because the home runs were what would get them on 'SportsCenter.' That really changed the mindset of the players. -Ryne Sandberg

Show me a university which is a hotbed of thin-skinned offence-taking, where every unacceptable idea is policed and every person who happens to hold one is hounded out of a job, and I will show you a university that isn't a university but an ideological prison camp and indoctrination centre. -Howard Jacobson

You can't stop demographics. And show me a fence that ever worked. It didn't work at Hadrian's Wall. The Great Wall of China didn't work. The Berlin Wall. -James Turrell

Everybody believed you had to have a big piece of lumber and then muscle the ball over the fence. But by the time I and Hank Aaron – another guy who did it with his wrists – were through, there were a lot of guys ordering light bats and playing handball. -Ernie Banks

Time is water, and the Venetians conquered both by building a city on water, and framed time with their canals. Or tamed time. Or fenced it in. Or caged it. -Joseph Brodsky

We are looking for rebuilding Hungarian defence Industry with India's participation. -Viktor Orban

The northern border is a different problem set than our southern border. We're not going to put a fence between America and Canada, across Glacier Park. I grew up there. We can use some technological controls. We work with the Canadians more, and there's a lot of property we share, along with tribal lands. -Ryan Zinke

I am still not at all in favour of offering any defence. Even if the court had accepted that petition submitted by some of my co-accused regarding defence, etc., I would not have defended myself. -Bhagat Singh

My applications submitted to the Tribunal regarding my interview during the hunger strike were misinterpreted, and it was published in the press that I was going to offer defence, though in reality I was never willing to offer any defence. -Bhagat Singh

After having supplied myself with provisions from Mr. Travis's, I scratched a hole under a pile of fence rails in a field, where I concealed myself for six weeks, never leaving my hiding place but for a few minutes in the dead of night to get water, which was very near. -Nat Turner

It's just as easy for me to be building a fence somewhere and scraping by on unemployment in between doing a guest star spot. I've been there. -Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Offence is no longer defence – it's a full-time profession. Everyone is so offended all the time. The new police force that we weren't told about: the moral police. No qualifications, no training, no understanding of actual morality, but they have a degree in the art of being offended. -Karan Johar

For me, it is very important to control a situation in defence. You can always score goals, but you have to add stability in the defence. -Bastian Schweinsteiger

I am a total beach person, and that's why I just love coming to Vizag. The city also reminds me of the peaceful defence colonies of my childhood. -Rakul Preet Singh

'Losing My Edge' was an anthem for the aging music nerd, with lyrics detailing a comically epic list of historical dates, bands and attended gigs: the anti-hipster's defence against 'the art-school Brooklynites in little jackets and borrowed nostalgia for the unremembered Eighties.' -Katie Kitamura

I was on a picture for four or five days, had an opportunity to be on a set, and the assistant cameraman kept showing me things. One day I climbed the fence, knowing they needed an assistant cameraman. A couple of days later, I was one. The first day or two, it was pretty disastrous, but I knew something about photography, and I caught on quick. -George Stevens

When I was little, I didn't have dreams to be an actress or a star; I wanted to be a mom, have a house and a picket fence. -Sherilyn Fenn

We deal here with the right of all of our children, whatever their race, to an equal start in life and to an equal opportunity to reach their full potential as citizens. Those children who have been denied that right in the past deserve better than to see fences thrown up to deny them that right in the future. -Thurgood Marshall

It's good to be good at playing defence, but the best defence is a strong offence. -Chrystia Freeland

You have to ask if the country would have been ready for Barack Obama if we hadn't been prepared by Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice. If they hadn't already been in positions of enormous power and influence – secretary of state, secretary of defence – you know what I mean? -Forest Whitaker

I used to live with my grandmother. I used to wonder why the other kids in school went home with their mothers and fathers. I wanted to be the guy that got married. I wanted to be the guy with the children and the white picket fence. I never had that. -Kevin Gates

I think you start hitting home runs, and you start getting caught up in seeing how far you can hit them. They're fun, but you really only have to hit them a foot over the fence. They all count the same. -Vernon Wells

I hate cardio; I hate to go for a run. I hate physical things. But Jiu Jitsu is fun because its self-defence and you get some good cardio. -Irina Shayk

The economics of the space industry are changing. Within so called 'NewSpace,' not only are new entrants being created almost daily, the business models and capital sources have proven to be dramatically different from traditional models built upon large government contracts and defence-related spending. -Dylan Taylor

I'm a big believer in,'If anyone can understand my politics, I've failed.' If you can get a sense of which side of the fence I'm on, then I'm not doing a service. I'm preaching, and that's not my job. -Taylor Sheridan

I am the Internet guy. But the reason the 'Onion News Empire' was such an easy decision to make is I so trust that side of the fence now. -Jeffrey Tambor

I wanted to live in the suburbs and have a white picket fence and my own bedroom. And a staircase – I thought having a staircase meant that you were a normal family. I thought somehow if you could transplant us to the suburbs, we would become a normal family. But in retrospect, I'm so grateful I grew up in the Chelsea. -Gaby Hoffmann

I own a ranch in Texas, so there's always something to do as far as work goes, whether it's tractor stuff or tearing down fence. -Stone Cold Steve Austin

I've had the liberty of having a lot of control in the offences I've been a part of because I get the game pretty well, and I pick things up fast. -Jordan Rodgers

I was creating characters early. People didn't beat me up. I scared them. I hated authority. I could also get people to do things; I was quite the early director. I could make people laugh enough to get their defences down – and then brainwash them. -John Waters

All things considered, defending our borders by building a fence to keep out people is a necessity. There is no more humane alternative when it comes to protecting ourselves. We must act humanely, within the law, while honoring transparency, but with firm resolve. -Viktor Orban

I go for my shots with no regrets, even if I play to the fence. -Garbine Muguruza

In our society, which is multiracial and multi-religious, giving offence to another religious or ethnic group, race, language, or religion is always a very serious matter. -Lee Hsien Loong

Abraham Lincoln spoke out against the Mexican War. But once Americans were under fire, people who were on the fence felt obliged to support it. -H. W. Brands

After spending so much time in America, I started travelling with 'In Defence of English Cooking' by George Orwell. It's archaic and old-fashioned in its Englishness and reminds me of home. -Jamie Hince

The whole idea of a trade deal is to build a fence around participants inside and give them an advantage over the outside. So there's a conceptual flaw in that, one of many conceptual flaws in NAFTA. -Wilbur Ross

Europe can't rely on a Trump-led U.S. for its defence. But, at the same time, it should recognise that the cold war is over – however unwilling to acknowledge it America's industrial-military complex may be. -Joseph Stiglitz

I try to be a complete player – in attack and in defence – and to improve every year. -Antoine Griezmann

As a lawyer, I've dealt with really serious offences, and the public rarely hear what the true impact is on the victims' families. When you hear it from the mouths of victims, your entire approach changes, because it could happen to anybody, and they articulate that in such a powerful way. -Robert Rinder

If an employer decides to flout the law, it may be guilty of criminal offences and subject to serious financial liability. -Robert Rinder

It is extremely hard to bring a claim for compensation against the police or the Crown Prosecution Service, even when a person has been charged with an offence and later cleared. -Robert Rinder

I have some really nice memories of Delhi. Going swimming, roaming around in Defence Colony, cycling in its beautiful, wide lanes, and enjoying good food. -Sidharth Malhotra

In Europe, we don't only take offence when one company is treating another company in a way that's illegal. We also look at if governments are joining up with companies that makes it more difficult for other companies. We also see that sometimes government actions can make it very difficult for businesses to compete on their merits. -Margrethe Vestager

I like the concept of 'Make in India'. But the orientation of 'Make in India' is slightly different than what I would. So, the orientation of Make in India is big business, and a lot of it is defence. My orientation of 'Make in India' would be small and medium businesses. -Rahul Gandhi

Many low-income people in the U.S.A. charged with a crime opt to plead guilty to a lesser offence because they cannot afford to go to trial. -Guy Standing

If you're even on the fence about hiring someone, that person is a no. You have to feel it in your gut. -Alan Schaaf

It would seem staggeringly arrogant to think we were the only ones in the universe, but at the same time, I don't know if contact has been made yet or not because you think something like that would be hard to cover up. I'm still on the fence. I keep an open mind about all of these things. -Dean Haglund

When I was in law school at Harvard, the Defence of Marriage Act (DOMA) in the U.S. was a big thing. I remember the fight between the army recruiters and Harvard University due to 'Don't ask, don't tell.' -Ory Okolloh

In a progressively privatised city, the defence of public space, the production of new public space, and saving what is public really for the public is very important. -Elizabeth Diller

A bizarre political correctness has tied the tongues of those who would normally rally to defend women's rights but who are now instead sacrificing those very rights in the name of fighting an increasingly powerful right wing. -Mona Eltahawy

Australia was a very different world and culture from the one I left in Europe. Life was much more spread out. People drove everywhere. They built higher fences. Neighbours didn't interact so much. -Andreja Pejic

We will pursue a relationship of friendship and co-operation with the United States, always rooted in mutual respect and in the defence of our fellow Mexicans who live and work honourably in that country. -Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador

A more worldly and competent foreign and defence policy is by far the preferred first line of defence – rather than the default position of relying on expensive but problematic hardware. -Paul Keating

All I watch is war movies. The stories be touching… just to see what they go through on both sides of the fence. -21 Savage

Even though I am not going to coach in the future, if I had to pass on a recommendation, it would be to base your game on having a strong defence. -Paolo Maldini

It's super easy to do what Conor does. He earned something. Then, he looks over the fence – he looks for something new – and it's very easy to be motivated for something new. -Max Holloway

Obviously, defence is very sensitive and very challenging ministry. -Nirmala Sitharaman

We have heard the Chinese refer to the Shangri-La Dialogue speech at various points. You have a lot of articulations about the top leadership itself about what is the spirit of India-China relations.

With South East Asian nations, ASEAN countries, with some of them, we do have defence cooperation, and we continue with them. -Nirmala Sitharaman

In defence, 'Make in India' is happening in a big way, and it is not happening without orders coming from the ministry. -Nirmala Sitharaman

I will be the defence minister round-the-clock. -Nirmala Sitharaman

We will ensure that the important characters of what make 'Make in India' an important flagship programme for PM Modi is given full play for defence production.

It will be a priority for me to ensure the smooth and speedy implementation of defence deals and projects. -Nirmala Sitharaman

There is something different between defence deal and deal in defence. -Nirmala Sitharaman

The government took a decision to implement 'One Rank, One Pension' for defence personnel in 2015 and promised to pay arrears in four instalments. I can say that all OROP arrears have been cleared, with over Rs 10,788 crore being spent. -Nirmala Sitharaman

It is the duty of the Defence Ministry and the forces to keep India safe. -Nirmala Sitharaman

In the periods of my career when I stopped passing the ball forward or when I stopped looking for the risky pass that might open up a defence, the consequences were the same. The manager stopped picking me. I got back into the team when I went back to doing it the way he wanted. -Paul Scholes

Buffon may be a bit smaller, but he has everything that you want from a great goalkeeper. He relays his confidence to his defence, and they feel that they have a great keeper behind them.

I had developed a relationship with one of the anti-abortion sidewalk counselors who stood in front of my facility.

I mean no offence, but we know that the French league is not the same as the Spanish or English league, where there's more difficulty. -Rivaldo

They say that the best form of defence is attack, but maybe I have to take a look at how I defend. -Kyle Walker

Britain First, the English Defence League, the British National Party, and the National Front are all guilty of using British symbols and institutions (notably support for the Armed Forces) to attempt to further their own deeply objectionable beliefs. -Amber Rudd

Most of the clubs who have had success against Barcelona have relied on a highly organised and disciplined defence. -Frank Rijkaard

Normally, I am a player who can play in different positions, but never in defence. -Georginio Wijnaldum

I think it's all machismo – 'Come on, you've got to guard your guy, man. If you can't guard your guy, then you can't play defence.' A lot of it is accountability, where you say, 'Hey, you're matched up with him. Go do your job.' The zone kind of sometimes moves a lot of pieces around. -Nick Nurse

We want to always play with pace on offence. -Nick Nurse

Marquinhos is very good in the middle, as in defence. He is an incredible player who must and always wants to improve. -Thomas Tuchel

I think when you play with the same defence, you sort of understand each other's body language, and you read off each other, and it's much, much better. -Wojciech Szczesny

Over a long time, I've honestly had enough of people saying Arsenal's defence is not good enough. -Wojciech Szczesny

When I was a child, it was segregated, and I couldn't go across a fence to certain parts of Gainesville. -Charles Bradley

In football, there has always been this idea of having a left-footer and a right-footer in central defence. -Aymeric Laporte

If Europe does not understand that our sister continent, Africa, a stone's throw away, is going to face a demographic explosion, if there is no real economic and political restructuring, if we do not understand we have a collective responsibility for Africa, there is not a fence high enough to stop people coming to Europe. -Frans Timmermans

The issue of migration has played a key role in all of our member states, wherever we are. Only we, as a European Union, can convince our citizens that we do have an answer to this – not deny migration, not pretend you can solve it by building fences and walls, not pretending we can solve it by letting everybody in. -Frans Timmermans

I don't get all these pop stars who sit on the fence when they're asked for an opinion. People are scared of speaking out. They're too worried about the consequences – like they might lose a few fans if they give a serious opinion. -Slowthai

We all need to chip in with goals and assists. It's not just the front three. It's not just the defence that keeps clean sheets, either. It's a team game. -Andrew Robertson

For me, as a coach, it is important to put together a team that not only blends but finds the right balance between defence and offence. -Jupp Heynckes
