I showed everyone the medal and they said, 'Ooh, I can't believe how heavy it is,' Sometimes they were more interested in the medal than in me. I was like, 'Hey, what about me?' -Sarah Hughes

Of course I've had a bunch of broken bones, sprains and I've had five or six concussions, with three serious ones. I also got a real heavy duty blood clot and internal bleeding from where I was shot in the stomach with a beanbag bullet that the police use for crowd control. I've also had six stitches in my head. -Johnny Knoxville

It's a pretty heavy thing that happens to me when I'm at competitions. I get so sucked in, I can't really turn it off. -Shaun White

I meant that the Chinese people are not aware of their own entrapment. They believe they live in a free society, but don't realize how much they are being monitored and controlled, how much the information they receive is restricted and warped, until they step out of line, that is, and feel the heavy hand of the state fall on them. -Ma Jian

I was a fan of heavy music – first metal, then punk, then hip hop. -Tom Morello

Then about 12 years ago it dawned on me that folk music – the music of Woody Guthrie and Phil Ochs, early Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Pete Seeger – could be as heavy as anything that comes through a Marshall stack. The combination of three chords and the right lyrical couplet can be as heavy as anything in the Metallica catalogue. -Tom Morello

I do know what my first meal in the next world would be… Spaghetti Aglio e Olio, heavy on everything. -Rachael Ray

You know, in my music career there was a moment where the irony was just so heavy. There were people in my audience that were the reason I developed neuroses. These people that tortured my life were using my art, my poetry, as fuel for them, to torture other people. -Fred Durst

I don't do heavy weights at all. -Maria Sharapova

I just love doing broader work – I always get asked to do fairly heavy-duty, intense dramas and interesting, psychologically intense characters. But you know, it's nice to make people laugh sometimes. -Julian Sands

If you look at casualties, you find countries that had much higher loss rates per capita than the US. Denmark comes to mind, the United Kingdom, they have suffered heavy losses at various points, the Germans as well. -David Petraeus

I used to lift very heavy weights in my mid-twenties – I used to bench press over 300lb. The most I ever lifted was 330lb; I couldn't do that today, no way. -Eric Bana

Go vegetable heavy. Reverse the psychology of your plate by making meat the side dish and vegetables the main course. -Bobby Flay

The mission I set out on in the beginning – to become heavyweight champion of the world, undisputed, lineal champion – you could say that mission is complete. -Lennox Lewis

I've worked hard and accomplished what I've accomplished in the heavyweight scene. -Lennox Lewis

I always ask myself why old heavyweights come back, but I plan to stay out of the ring. -Lennox Lewis

I like everything to be dependable, heavy, English furniture. -Mikhail Khodorkovsky

Basically I started playing double handed on both my forehand and backhand side because my first racket was very heavy. -Bjorn Borg

The American people ask, and legitimately so, why should we carry the heavy burden to ensure international peace and stability. You also profit from it, so you should also take your share in the burden. That's Secretary Gates's message. I share that message. -Anders Fogh Rasmussen

One of my timesaving habits is to save all of my magazines and junk mail for airplane trips. I walk on the plane with a very heavy bundle, but by the time the trip is over, it can all be thrown away. -Renee Fleming

Why would heavy metal ever go away? -Scott Ian

Anthrax, it's something that gets you sick, it's horrible, strong. It's a heavy-metal band name if there ever was one. -Scott Ian

The TV ads have been coming hot and heavy in Ohio. I think the Obama campaign has outspent the Romney campaign by two-to-one or three-to-one, depending on the analysis you look at. People are tired of the attacks already, and here we are in July. -Rob Portman

In France today, people no longer eat as much heavy food and fat as they did 15 or 20 years ago. These days, French cooking, through the influence of 'grande cuisine,' has become a bit lighter. And we are beginning to discover the original flavors of our produce. -Joel Robuchon

I train, for me, very smartly. I don't train heavy, I do a lot of isometrics. -Jean-Claude Van Damme

In the past, I was working out too heavy. -Jean-Claude Van Damme

There was no way to focus on the movement of the cable. If I looked down at the cable there was water moving everywhere. And if I looked up there was heavy mist blowing in front of my face. So it was a very unique, a weird sensation. -Nik Wallenda

I suppose if you look back to your early childhood you accept everything people tell you, and that includes a heavy dose of irrationality – you're told about tooth fairies and Father Christmas and things. -Richard Dawkins

The growth model China has relied on for the last 30 years – one predicated on low-cost exports to the rest of the world and investment in resource intensive heavy manufacturing – is unlikely to serve it well in the next 30 years. -Gary Locke

Politicians also have a love affair with the 'small business exemption.' Too much paperwork? Too heavy a burden? Not enough time? Just exempt small businesses from the rule. It sounds so pro-growth. Instead it's an admission that the costs of a regulation just can't be justified. -John Sununu

All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don't subscribe to any of that. It's all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the '70s sounds nothing like the stuff from the '80s, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the '90s. Who's to say what is and isn't a certain type of music? -Neil Young

My mum was very conscious about fashion and my dad was born into the tailoring tradition, so fashion has always been my life, although now, really, I wear the same thing – just in different weights – light and heavy cashmere in winter and cotton in summer. -Domenico Dolce

The winding down of summer puts me in a heavy philosophical mood. -Robert Fulghum

All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don't subscribe to any of that. It's all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the Seventies sounds nothing like the stuff from the Eighties, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the Nineties. Who's to say what is and isn't a certain type of music? -Ozzy Osbourne

A perfect record does not mean that someone is the greatest. Rocky Marciano never lost a fight, but I never hear anyone say he's the greatest heavyweight champion of all time. -Steve Sabol

I always see where I didn't do things the right way. I only see the heavy lifting. That's a bit of my wisdom, if you want to call it that. -Vera Wang

I don't get into heavy political numbers because I don't find them lyrical. -James Taylor

Climate protection creates sustainability and jobs in the real economy – in construction, in the production of heavy machinery and in systems engineering. -Sigmar Gabriel

Every day I go to my study and sit at my desk and put the computer on. At that moment, I have to open the door. It's a big, heavy door. You have to go into the Other Room. Metaphorically, of course. And you have to come back to this side of the room. And you have to shut the door. -Haruki Murakami

I do shadow boxing and use a heavy bag, but I don't spar with anyone. -Liam Neeson

One has to explain to people that the EU in this form is the answer both to 1945 and to the 21st century, in a dramatically altered world with new heavyweights, and that Germany benefits from the continued integration of Europe in political, economic and societal ways. And, of course, that means the Germans will have to pay. -Peer Steinbruck

Music has generally involved a lot of awkward contraptions, a certain amount of heavy lifting. -Tom Waits

I grew up with a heavy diet of gospel, folk, and blues because those are kind of the cornerstones of traditional American music. -Ben Harper

Europe and North America, we are told, are less dependent on energy-intensive heavy industry than in the 1960s and 1970s. It seems we squeeze more GDP out of a barrel of oil than in those benighted days. -James Buchan

What had brought me to New York in the autumn of 1972 was a letter of recommendation written by Norman Mailer, the author of 'The Naked and the Dead' and American literature's leading heavyweight contender, to Dan Wolf, the delphic editor of 'The Village Voice.' -James Wolcott

You don't know what it is to be heavyweight champ of the world until you become the heavyweight champ of the world. -George Foreman

The films that I do are deep, introspective, brooding roles that you're in this heavy headspace all the time. -Vin Diesel

From the heaviest of the heavy to classical to country, that's what I listen to, I listen to a variety and I enjoy good music, good songs. -Tom Araya

After 'Kong,' my knuckles have never recovered because I had to wear very heavy weights on my forearms and around my hips and ankles to get the sense of size and scale of the movement of the character… You are telling your body that you are these things and that you're feeling these thoughts and that you're experiencing these experiences. -Andy Serkis

There's not as much oxygen in that hot gym and I think it's great for conditioning. I believe in a lot of boxing. You can train and work on the speed bag and heavy bag, but when you get in the ring with another fighter, it's a different story. Punches are coming at you, there's physical contact, muscle against muscle. -Emanuel Steward

Whenever I pick up a jacket and it's heavy, I think, 'Oh, I don't want to wear that.' -Sarah Burton

Once a popular Alaska governor with a modest record of accomplishment, Palin could conceivably revive her reputation in this era of short memories.

I don't do facials or any of that stuff, but my workout regime does tend to depend on whether I have to take my top off in my next film because otherwise I know I'm too heavy. -Clive Owen

I play and I've played in heavy bands, but when I write for myself, I don't particularly feel like writing huge rock riffs. It just doesn't work for me and my voice. -James Iha

Some people train for certain sports and I want to train to be able to hold a super heavy electric guitar and carry luggage around myself because I always have to have 7,000 pairs of shoes. Who cares about sports? -Lisa Loeb

Years ago, I was performing, and people kept calling out for 'Puppy Love' and I just didn't want to. Then I thought I'd have some fun, so we did this insane heavy metal version of it. The applause was polite. -Donny Osmond

When I was growing up and listening to bands like the Dave Clark Five, the groove was what initially got me going. I really like that funky, heavy groove. -Eddie Van Halen

There's been times when I've been standing in a line at a movie and someone's hit me with something really heavy about someone really close and how our music has helped them get through it. Even in our darkest moments we try and find something beautiful. -Eddie Vedder

I worked as a head cook at courthouses and high schools. I left it behind when I started getting into my music real heavy. -Flavor Flav

One has to look at my life story to see what I've done. I've paid a heavy price that many people don't realize. -Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Luckily, my husband is my business partner as well as my life partner, so I never had to do the heavy lifting alone, literally or figuratively. -Josie Maran

The post-Soviet mafia wove a spider's web of dirty money around the world. Where better to attack it than to start with the Ukrainian criminal heavyweights – the 'family' and its closest circle? -Yulia Tymoshenko

I look for a sense of reality with everything I did. I didn't work in a studio, I didn't light anything. I found a way of working which pleased me because I didn't have to frighten people with heavy equipment. It was that little black box and me and £5 worth of film in my pocket or maybe it was only £2 in those days. -Eve Arnold

It took me twenty years to get Steven Parrino's work. From the time I first saw his art, in the mid-eighties, I almost always dismissed it as mannered, Romantic, formulaic, conceptualist-formalist heavy-metal boy-art abstraction. -Jerry Saltz

Part of the joy of music is listening to lots of different kinds of music and learning from it. Specifically for me, I like writing songs that move me, and what moves me are beautiful songs on the piano or the guitar and really, really heavy music. -Ryan Adams

I think that women are powerful and they're multifaceted and they're survivors; they don't have to depend on a man to do the things they needed them to do, whether it was hunting or lifting heavy things, so what's a man's place now? Who knows! -Rashida Jones

This is my breakfast: Two poached eggs, turkey bacon, and a half avocado. The yolks in a poached egg are alkalizing. Avocados are a great source of fat and vitamin E; great for your skin. It's super light and not too heavy. Sometimes I like a little sweet as well, so I have a cup of plain yogurt with blueberries. -April Bowlby

I grew up around a lot of various religions, so it's a part of my consciousness in a way. Everything from heavy Catholicism to followers of Indian spiritual masters to Unitarian universalists – all in one family. Though the family aspect was stronger than any particular dogma. -St. Vincent

I actually got to write with one of my musical heroes, a guy named Raine Maida from Our Lady Peace. I got to sit down and write some songs with him, and that was pretty heavy. I listened to Our Lady Peace growing up. It got me through the teenage angst. -David Cook

I feel very comfortable in my own skin. When someone makes jokes about me being heavy, it makes me mad. It's not true. I'm right where I should be. -Amy Schumer

I used to get made fun of a lot for being a male dancer, especially growing up in Boston. Kids are terrible, they don't realize how heavy words can be. -Kenny Wormald

Because I'm very petite, I try not to wear things that have a heavy pattern because I feel like they overtake you. -Emma Roberts

I used to hate old-timers who didn't praise the younger wrestlers, but you've got to pass the torch sometime. If you're old, that torch gets too heavy for you and you can't carry it, so it won't do you any good. -Randy Savage

Being a sex symbol is a heavy load to carry, especially when one is tired, hurt and bewildered. -Clara Bow

Nowadays I actually cook Italian-style food more than French heavy sauces. I make a good salad, some great roasted vegetables, grilled fish. I'm crazy about L.A. because at the farmers' market you find all kinds of wild mushrooms. -Benjamin Millepied

I like doing very high action things. Running, boxing, a lot of free weights. They're not heavy. I eat what I want, really, because I think that while you're working out you can eat better. -Natasha Bedingfield

I think there's something unfortunate about the attention that performers get in our media, but the weight of government propaganda is so heavy that anyone with a different point of view who has access to the media has a responsibility to use it. -David Clennon

I'm very proud of my Nigerian heritage. I wasn't fortunate enough to be raised in a heavy Nigerian environment, because my parents were always working. My father was with D.C. Cabs and my mother worked in fast food and was a nurse. -Wale

'Drive' came to me because the casting director knew my manager and called and said, 'You've always talked to me about Albert wanting to play the heavy. I think he should read this.' My ears just perked up. -Albert Brooks

I was a kind of angsty teenager and I would write diaries and write stuff down all the time. Sometimes I get to the level on stage where I'm singing and it feels heavy, but not always. -Ellie Goulding

I'm struggling with what is epic. People decided I was epic – if by epic, do you mean a big, heavy book? 'David Copperfield' is a big book – is it epic? Amount of time covered, length, drama, or story – that's the real appeal – if the story is long you have a better chance of becoming more connected. -Patrick Rothfuss

Here's how I work: It's 2013, and most marketers are operating like it's 2009. I'm always trying to market like it's 2015, but not like it's 2020. A lot of my contemporaries who understand where the world is going, go too far out, and aren't practical. I have always prided myself on being visionary, with a heavy practicality. -Gary Vaynerchuk

I was in punk rock bands, heavy metal bands, world music bands, jazz groups, any type of music that would take me. I just love music. -Reggie Watts

I would really like to do a straight action movie that's hardcore – heavy action, like 'The Expendables' or 'Fast Five.' -Tania Raymonde

Only two to three per cent of an audience is interested in words and pays attention to lyrics; most of the rest of it is about image or the beat or the sound, or else it's a tribal thing – country & western, rap, heavy metal, with historical folk rock off in some kind of cult. -Al Stewart

Ah, the power of two. There's nothing quite like it. Especially when it comes to paying utility bills, parenting, cooking elaborate meals, purchasing a grown-up bed, jumping rope and lifting heavy machinery. The world favours pairs. Who wants to waste the wood building an ark for singletons? -Sloane Crosley

It's heavy, but I am able to carry it. Why? Because I'm an African woman. An African woman carries heavy loads anyway. That's how we are trained; we are brought up that nothing is unbearable. I use that now, positively. I use that now to have the thick skin that I have, and not fear, and move forward, and push; and push forward. -Joyce Banda

I'm the type of person who can get a feel for what you need and what I need to do to push you to get you to a breaking point, where you realize that you can't go on this way anymore, that the reason you're heavy is because you're ignoring all the stuff that's going on inside. -Cara Castronuova

I've been lifting weights since I was literally 15 or 16 years old. My muscles are short and powerful and built to lift heavy weights, not to be graceful and glide around a dance floor. -Jake Pavelka

I am really heavy into songwriting. -Teyana Taylor

Well, you can't throw heavy, analytical, thought-provoking songs at people 24/7. It's been my experience over the last 20 years that on a rare occasion, in a live setting, if you can slow people down to listen to two good ballads, then you're doing pretty good. Then throw a tempo at 'em. Then have fun. -Ronnie Dunn

I've fallen down crevasses, been bitten by snakes, been knocked unconscious, had various limbs broken and once, a heavy camera came plunging down which very nearly decapitated me. -Bear Grylls

I'm primarily thought of as a rocker, and certainly 'Frankenstein' had a very dramatic power rock image. It was almost a precursor of heavy metal and fusion. But I also love jazz and classical and if there's one common thread that runs through all my music, it is blues. -Edgar Winter

I'd like to learn how to cook. I've hauled around this big, old, heavy Martha Stewart cookbook in my suitcase to Cape Cod, L.A., Paris. I don't know what possessed me. -Mamie Gummer

Every time Washington regulators pass down another heavy-handed rule or levy another hefty fine, Colorado loses potential jobs, revenue, and economic security. -Bob Beauprez

Oftentimes, heavy weights can tear the muscle fiber causing it to bulk, but using a lighter weight for a longer duration and allowing your body to move in many different ways to target all of the muscles will lengthen them without tearing. -Tracy Anderson

I have always been interested in how you can depict suffering without being heavy-handed. -Marlene Dumas

Mumford and Sons and Adele are both incredible artists and are great for popular music. There's a lot of club music with heavy beats, so to have that Mumford record and hear banjos being used is so cool. -Dave Haywood

The Booker 2011 is of no more interest to me than the world heavyweight championship, which I'm not going to win either. It's irrelevant. -Edward St Aubyn

It was a free-for-all with music when I was growing up. My mother was a huge music fanatic so I was listening to everything from country to heavy metal to Indigo Girls to Elton John. I guess when I was really young I didn't like Willie Nelson, and she obviously loved him. Now I do too, I'm so thankful to her for playing his music nonstop. -Tig Notaro

One area I have a huge amount of trouble in is writing about myself. I get a heavy, almost depressed feeling. -Jennifer Egan

It's really important to me to promote worthy causes. But not in a heavy, obligatory, responsibility way. I really admired that as a kid, learning about the 'Elton John AIDS Foundation.' And I was obsessed with The Indigo Girls. And they are the consummate activist group, always reaching out, especially to Native causes and things like that. -Brandi Carlile

A director recommended me for the role on 'Soap.' They said, 'She plays heavy roles, murderesses and the like.' He said, 'On stage, she could be very very funny.' -Katherine Helmond

What music I listen to day to day changes very, very much. I can go from bluegrass to heavy metal, to blues, to classical and big band and then go to pop and rap. -Casey James

The iambic line, with its characteristic forward movement from short to long, or light to heavy, or unstressed to stressed, is the quintessential measure of English verse. -James Fenton

My dad, as a guy, had to quit school in the ninth grade, fought in the Battle of the Bulge. And spent his life pushing wheel barrels of heavy wet cement. So we've gone from pushing cement to now in one generation pushing legislation. But we always want any president to succeed, to do well; that means America does well and Americans do well. -John Barrasso

I think I've written 40 books, and none of them have been heavy on action. I'm an introspective person. -Lois Lowry

Over the centuries, religion has become institutionalized, and in the process encrusted with elaborate hierarchies, top-heavy bureaucracies, highly specialized roles and reflexive routines. -Gary Hamel

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

Bon Jovi's trick is to use heavy-metal chords and still sound absolutely safe. Rock & roll used to be rebellion disguised as commercialism; now so much of it is commercialism disguised as rebellion. -Michael Azerrad

I lift heavy weights and sprint, but I am so bad at it that I develop severe injuries. -Nassim Nicholas Taleb

I really was kind of like a musical nerd. I would watch VH1's 'Behind The Music.' That was heavy when I was a kid. I would sit up and want to watch that all day instead of going outside sometimes. -Rico Love

Britons are good, though often brutal, colonists where they come into relations with entirely uncivilized tribes whose past is so remote as to be forgotten. But they trample with their heavy boots over the sensitive, delicate susceptibilities of an ancient, highly civilized and cultured nation, such as India. -Annie Besant

If you want your hair to be thicker, cut it when the moon is about to be full – a heavy, full, waxing moon. Do not cut it when the moon's waning. -Matthew McConaughey

My real self, the self I have always been from a child, is a loner and nerd, slightly overweight, with a very heavy fringe. That is who I was as a kid. I don't think I will ever be anything other than that. -Hayley Atwell

I read a lot of heavy literature when I'm on set, so on holiday I want to indulge in something light-hearted. -Hayley Atwell

I inherited this collection of vinyl records, which at that time numbered 6,000, and I've since continued to collect music. As you know, vinyl records can be very heavy, so every time I have to move into a new house, I need to build a complete new wall of shelves to put all these records, which is a nightmare for the architect. -Frida Giannini

Unlike 'real relationships', 'virtual relationships' are easy to enter and to exit. They look smart and clean, feel easy to use, when compared with the heavy, slow-moving, messy real stuff. -Zygmunt Bauman

Soldiers of the American Revolution fought that 18th century war with heavy muskets. In the early 20th century, we kids fought it every Fourth of July not only with exploding powder and shimmering flares, but with all of our senses. -Paul Engle

The clothes are different: pre-dog, I used to be very finicky and self-conscious about how I looked; now I schlep around in the worst clothing – big heavy boots, baggy old sweaters, a hooded down parka from L.L. Bean that makes me look like an astronaut. -Caroline Knapp

My mentor Jon Simmons introduced me to the Stanislavski system, which is so heavy on back-story. So you write and write and write these back stories about a character and then you throw it away. So then on set, if it doesn't come, then you didn't do your work. -Chris Zylka

When I get home from a heavy work day, I make sure I get outside with the kids. I don't think there's any better cure than being active as a family outside. -Elisabeth Hasselbeck

I was really heavy growing up, so it was never feeling like the pretty girl, never being popular. -Elle Varner

I knew I wanted to be in music, but I didn't know my role, so I did everything from interning at Rolling Stone to writing heavy metal fanzines to playing in a high-school band, and I think all those things probably helped in a way. -Mark Ronson

Our own sorrows seem heavy enough, even when lifted by certain long-term joys. But watching others hurt is the breaker of most any heart. -Clarissa Pinkola Estes

I find that the people who don't eat as much candy are really into heavy protein, like steak. I don't eat that. -Dylan Lauren

I think the National Football League needs a new union. The heavyweights of this union are not heavyweights enough. -Jim Brown

We share our planet quite naturally with a permanent aeroplankton; a buoyant ecology too soft to hear, too small to see, but heavy with mood and meaning. Imagine being aware of all these airy inclusions – and you can begin to understand how it might feel to be able to smell really well. -Lyall Watson

To you, W. B. Yeats, good praiser, wholesome dispraiser, heavy-handed judge, open-handed helper of us all, I offer a play of my plays for every night of the week, because you like them, and because you have taught me my trade. -Lady Gregory

For me, the '60s in the automotive industry was awesome. The cars are heavy, huge, rolling works of art. -Apolo Ohno

I never saw myself as a spokesman for a generation. It was all a bit heavy for me. I saw myself as a songwriter and wrote for myself, which I still do, and I also wanted to communicate with my audience. -Paul Weller

I think the minute you mention death, people run for the hills – unless it's heavy metal. People do not like death. -Rufus Wainwright

That's the challenging thing with TV; it's not the action scenes per se, and it's not the location scenes and the heavy dialog scenes, but the fact that there is just no let-up; there is no break. -Jason O'Mara

I spent a lot of time lifting my drums into a van, playing to ten people night after night. I can't complain about anything now. That stuff was heavy. -Fred Armisen

Banks are concerned the central bank is imposing too many regulations. If the trend continues, we'll swing to heavy regulation. We need to have balanced regulation to encourage the economy. -Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair

There are methods to creating a mayhem that sounds different from your usual mayhem. Because mayhem and a heavy drum backbeat end up sounding like Green Day or something. But if you put a different beat within it to create some air and lightness, the chaos comes through better. -Nick Cave

Writing a novel – unlike operating a piece of heavy machinery, say, or cooking a chicken – is not a skill that can be taught. There is no standard way of doing it, just as there is no means of telling, while you're doing it, whether you're doing it well or badly. And merely because you've done it well once doesn't mean you can do it well again. -Robert Harris

I will tell you that when I was heavy, people would say to me – and it was such a backhanded compliment – they would say, 'You've got such a beautiful face,' in the way of, like, 'Oh, isn't it a shame that from the neck down you're questionable.' -Kate Winslet

We know that if supersymmetric particles exist, they must be very heavy; otherwise we would have spotted them by now. -Brian Greene

If heavy metal bands ruled the world, we'd be a lot better off. -Bruce Dickinson

I wake up in the morning and my heart is light, man. It's not heavy. I don't have skeletons in the closet on their way out. -Drake

The rap community has been singled out as more homophobic than other groups, but I don't think that's right. It's homophobic, all right, but no more so than the heavy-metal community or the Hollywood community or any other community. -Michael Franti

Cave divers, of course, deal with an elevated level of risk, and the most that I can say here is that we tend to conduct our work at the bottom of a deep cave on an extremely conservative basis with heavy levels of backup equipment and a policy to abort if any single person doesn't like the situation underwater at any time during the mission. -William Stone

I just want to be a nice girl from the Midwest – I don't want to have to act like a heavy to be taken seriously, and I resent that I have to be so pushy and political sometimes just to do my job. -Cindy Crawford

We will reverse course on the heavy hand of regulation, discarding Dodd-Frank and any other regulations that advance a political agenda at the expense of jobs and investment on Main Street. -Rick Perry

Contrary to the utopian rhetoric of social media enthusiasts, the Internet often makes the jump from deliberation to participation even more difficult, thwarting collective action under the heavy pressure of never-ending internal debate. -Evgeny Morozov

A utopian future for the Internet could be secured if the heavy-duty influencers – and the grassroots influencers tweeting along – can create a new global organization peopled with defenders of Internet freedom. -Naomi Wolf

His name is 'Mr. Spock.' And the first view of him can be almost frightening – a face so heavy-lidded and satanic you might almost expect him to have a forked tail. Probably half Martian, he has a slightly reddish complexion and semi-pointed ears. -Gene Roddenberry

We are in a tech-heavy society, plunging headlong into an unknown future. Science fiction is what allows you to stand back and analyze the impact of that and put it in context of how it affects people. -J. Michael Straczynski

I wouldn't be in a huge hurry to go back to Kansas. It was just bizarre. There's a lot of very, very heavy set people who believe in whatever they were told, because they didn't seem to get out very much or be interested in leaving where they were. They just didn't seem that curious, and I find that a little hard to deal with. -Dylan Moran

I was muscular – I was never overweight. But tell a girl that she has to lose 15 pounds when she's not fat, and that has destroyed a lot of who I am over the years, even still. In my mind I'm thinking, 'I'm always too heavy. I should be a skinny thing.' -Kim Alexis

I didn't much like being in Parliament physically. I found it a bit depressing. It's very dark and heavy. I like being out and about. -Geoff Mulgan

If a severe pandemic materializes, all of society could pay a heavy price for decades of failing to create a rational system of health care that works for all of us. -Irwin Redlener

Deep Purple definitely belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 'Cause they had great songs, great musicianship, they had an impact, and they're a huge influence on the heavy metal community as a whole. -Kirk Hammett

The same sensations that you get in heavy metal are in horror movies. Heavy metal sounds evil and horror movies are evil, ha ha! -Kirk Hammett

I have the bigger iPad, but the Mini is the best. It just seems perfect. The old one seems so big and heavy. I like simple and clean. -Jeff Garlin

I like going to see live bands. Live bands can be quite heavy, but I think it's very relaxing at the same time because you feel so happy and chilled-out. -Ed Speleers

You have tremendous flexibility in defining both the greater good and the greater community. If you don't succeed in this, then you will continue to pull that heavy wagon up the mountain, and despite the fact that you are pulling it, it will somehow run over your own foot. -Srikumar Rao

I really wasn't heavy in high school. But no one feels right in their own skin, particularly in high school. -Tina Fey

'Immortals' was very much a martial arts based training program – a lot of body weight stuff, very little in the way of actually lifting heavy weights, and a very, very low calorie diet. -Henry Cavill

I always get cast as the girl who's dying or the girl who's killing or the girl who's suicidal – all these heavy roles. But I like playing them. -Lauren German

I'm not too secure about my looks. They can always change. I was heavy and overweight as a teenager, so it's hard to be cocky or egotistical. -Lorenzo Lamas

While the liberal media elite depict the bowler as a chubby guy with a comb-over and polyester pants, the reality is that bowling is one of the most tech-heavy sports today. Robotic pinsetters and computerized scoring were just the beginning. -Chris Hardwick

Football and me have never got on. My instinct and love for the harder end of contact had always meant I was perhaps a little too heavy-handed for football. Somehow it left me feeling unfulfilled. -Nick Frost

When I write in the studio, I tend to gravitate toward the ability to play really loud, aggressive, post-punk stuff, with big, heavy guitars and a big rock drum sound. -Tom DeLonge

'Life Is Good' represents the most beautiful, dramatic and heavy moments in my life. -Nas

My earliest memories of rap music was mixed with my earliest memories of reggae music. They were big sounds around the way, heavy bass lines, strong messages, definitely. -Nas

I have truly eclectic taste in music, and I seem to cycle through phases in terms of to what's inspiring me. I'll go from Beethoven to Sigur Ros; world music, Brit-pop, classic rock, blues/jazz, even the odd bit of heavy metal. -Rachel Miner

I like playing heavy metal music and pretending I'm a vampire in front of the mirror. -Luke Mably

Our conception of 1950s underwear is a lovely vintage aesthetic, but actually, wearing stockings with no elastic and a girdle was heavy duty. -Romola Garai

I can bulk up very fast. I can lift heavy weights because, like most people, I started off with heavy workouts. That's stayed in my muscle memory. I feel horrible when I feel my jeans are getting tight. Workouts peace me out. -Arjun Rampal

I was a grunt, walking around in the jungle of Vietnam, trying not to find the enemy. Because I am so big, they were going to give me either a heavy radio or a huge machine gun to carry. I carried a radio. -Bob Gunton

Whenever there's heavy-duty emotional work to be done, they call me. As for playing the completely off-the-wall, sexy, gorgeous lady that I am – no, they don't think of me. -Bonnie Bedelia

When I was first approached for 'Pass the Plate,' I was thrilled because I love to cook. And I love to cook healthy. The reason I started cooking was because I would go to restaurants and have just amazing food but feel so heavy and gross. I would go home and try to cook the same thing, but a healthy version. -Brenda Song

At 15, I started listening to hard rock and heavy metal, but I would say it was more hard rock because I liked Kiss, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, and eventually AC/DC. -Rick Rubin

Before a game, I avoid having a heavy meal so that I don't feel sleepy at the board. You eat to be healthy, and that generally takes care of everything. Also, you can't be too finicky, since at tournaments you tend to eat at restaurants here and there. But, as long as you're eating sensibly, it's all good. -Viswanathan Anand

Gentle reader, the Fountain of Youth is radioactive, and those who imbibe its poisonous heavy waters will suffer the hideous fate of decaying metal. Yet almost without exception, the wretched idiot inhabitants of our benighted planet would gulp down this radioactive excrement if it were offered. -William S. Burroughs

There's no way around it – drama is very difficult to shoot. It's very heavy and something that you carry with you for the course of the day. -Denis Leary

I like Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Common. But I like the underground stuff like Young Jeezy, Black Rob and Shine. I also love heavy metal like Slipknot and Pantera, It's very intense stuff. -Vanilla Ice

I had a trainer during 'Spiderman,' and I discovered I have deep-seated rage when I'm holding heavy weights over my head. Whatever dormant anger I have in me, that's where it comes out. That's not the kind of working out I want to do. -Emma Stone

I have tons of friends in the heavy-metal music world, and just going to see them inspires me. -Kerry King

Yes, I'm half Italian. So my grandfather speaks heavy Italian… and I couldn't understand a word he said. -Paulo Costanzo

I eat healthy and don't go by a diet chart. The breakfast is usually heavy, complemented with short frequent meals. My dinner is high on proteins and low on carbohydrates. -Vijender Singh

Since the 1960s, mainstream media has searched out and co-opted the most authentic things it could find in youth culture, whether that was psychedelic culture, anti-war culture, blue jeans culture. Eventually heavy metal culture, rap culture, electronica – they'll look for it and then market it back to kids at the mall. -Douglas Rushkoff

I grew up with the Blind Boys' music. My family owns a music store in Claremont, California, called The Claremont Folk Music Center. I grew up with a heavy diet of gospel, folk, and blues because those are kind of the cornerstones of traditional American music. -Ben Harper

I am more interested in how people interpret the phrase 'Elect The Dead' than what I may or may not have intended. I named the album after the track, which is a spiritual song about love, life and death and is the heaviest song on the album without having any heavy instruments. -Serj Tankian

Both my parents had heavy accents, and so did everybody they knew. It's a rhythm thing – people who speak English where they have to hesitate and think of the right word. And I think it rubbed off. -Christopher Walken

I don't know what heavy penance I would not have gladly undertaken rather than practice prayer. -Saint Teresa of Avila

A live action movie is work, and an animated movie is you showing up in your pajamas once every three months, or in my case, just a splash of baby powder. It's not any kind of heavy lifting. -Ryan Reynolds

I think people will always love a heavy Sabbath riff because it's fundamental to rock. -Stone Gossard

I have to have music playing constantly. It creates the tone and mood for anything you are doing. I specifically love rock, and Jimi Hendrix is one of my favorite artists. My favorite song is 'Red House,' because it's heavy on the blues. -Marisa Miller

One of the biggest obstacles I've overcome in my life was thinking I didn't deserve to be successful. Artistically I'm not as much of a heavyweight as someone like Paul Simon or Joni Mitchell, because I'm not a creator of original music, and I worried about that for years. -Bonnie Raitt

Mike Tyson is the most complex person I've ever met in my life. I've known Mike since 1986. We're both from Brooklyn. I didn't know him growing up, but once he became heavyweight champion, I knew him then. -Spike Lee

I think one of the defining moments of adulthood is the realization that nobody's going to take care of you. That you have to do the heavy lifting while you're here. And when you don't, well, you suffer the consequences. -Adam Savage

Carrying a grudge is a heavy burden. As you forgive, you will feel the joy of being forgiven. -Henry B. Eyring

When I was heavy, people would say to me – and it was such a backhanded compliment – they would say, 'You've got such a beautiful face,' in the way of, like, 'Oh, isn't it a shame that from the neck down you're questionable.' -Kate Winslet

Growing up under the heavy hand of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, it was drummed into me that attending weekly mass was not an option. It was a must to avoid eternal damnation, which was not a prospect filled with many positives. Hell fire was perpetual, and no parole would be offered. -Bill O'Reilly

Movies are all about plot. Theater, even if it's story heavy, it's about ideas. Theater has to resonate in your heart in a way that movies don't. -Harvey Fierstein

The bravery shown by Azza Suleiman who dared to stand up for another woman who was being beaten, and paid a heavy price in doing so, is both awe-inspiring and humbling. -Vivienne Westwood

I don't get into these long-winded heavy discussions about character – do we do this or that or what. At the end of the day, what you gotta do is just go out there and do it. -Robert De Niro

Everything I do is autobiographical in some way. 'Wayne's World' was me growing up in the suburbs of Toronto and listening to heavy metal, and 'Austin Powers' was every bit of British culture that my father, who passed away in 1991, had forced me to watch and taught me to love. -Mike Myers

It is impossible to preserve my friendship with people who are allegedly leaders when they are attacking their own people, shooting at them, using tanks and other forms of heavy weaponry. -Recep Tayyip Erdogan

I have my misgivings about 3-D. I don't like the lack of blacks and whites, how it dulls the image, how the color gets corrupted. I don't necessarily like the experience of having heavy glasses in front of me. -Alfonso Cuaron

I try to do something physical every day. I don't go heavy every day, though. -Russell Wilson

Thoughtful lightness can make frivolity seem dull and heavy. -Italo Calvino

I actually had a bunch of songs that I worked on with Jamey Jasta from Hatebreed, but they were too heavy for me because my voice sounds good when I sing clean. It sounds good dirty too, but when I hear my voice sing really clean, that's a special sound. -Sebastian Bach

It's not my place to compare myself to greats like Tyson, Frazier or men like that. But I would look at a fighter like Evander Holyfield. He's a great heavyweight who worked his way up through the weight classes to become champion and had to beat bigger men along the way. -Wladimir Klitschko

I think a fight with David Haye, even if he is not American, is going to give positive vibes about the heavyweight division for the American fans and fans worldwide. -Wladimir Klitschko

In the old days, when Muhammad Ali was fighting Ken Norton, Joe Frazier and George Foreman, there was a lot of excitement in the heavyweight division, I have to admit it. -Wladimir Klitschko

I've been many times to Dubai and the U.A.E., and I have friends that live there. It would be exciting to stage world heavyweight championship fights in the Arab world. It's something Muhammad Ali achieved when he fought in Zaire or the Philippines. It's absolutely exciting to fight in countries where you have never fought. -Wladimir Klitschko

Kids can sniff out a moral. They can feel the heavy hand of an adult. -Jeff Kinney

People ask how I can be a conservative and still want higher taxes. It makes my head spin, and I guess it shows how old I am. But I thought that conservatives were supposed to like balanced budgets. I thought it was the conservative position to not leave heavy indebtedness to our grandchildren. -Ben Stein

I'm just a lipgloss, blush and mascara kind of girl. I like playing with a bright lipstick or a heavy eye… But not together! -Lily Cole

I do love to cry. I'll cry at the drop of a hat. I'll cry at your basic television programme, let alone a weepie. But not big, heavy, serious crying. I haven't done that for a while, which is a relief. More like a little welling up of joy. -Miranda Hart

Honestly, I can't survive without my MAC gloss, pigment – sometimes MAC powder. But definitely my gloss and pigment and liner. I don't do mascara all the time. I do when I wear no lashes. I use the mascara, but when I wear lashes, I don't always do mascara, because it makes it real heavy sometimes. -Lil' Kim

As an actor, whether you look good or you don't, it's still about what you look like: Whether you are heavy enough to play this part or thin enough to play that part. The fact of the matter is, you can add a little weight with some extra padding, but you can't shave it off. -Cherry Jones

Red carpet dressing all depends on the climate. I think richer, deeper colours are more flattering on the body, but the opposite is true if you are in Cannes or St. Tropez where the light makes deep colours look heavy and unflattering. -Alice Temperley

For me, I love the flavors of Southern food, and people usually think of Southern food as heavy and fattening, but it doesn't have to be. -Carla Hall

Stuffed vine leaves tend to burn and/or stick when you cook them. To avoid this, use a heavy based pan lined with a few layers of second-rate leaves. -Yotam Ottolenghi

Everything I want to do, and to accomplish, is on the other side of the universe. That's peace of mind, energy, freedom. And I'm making myself ready to go, joyfully and willingly. I think I'm ready to be everybody's friend, and to do anything for anybody. It's heavy. -Richie Havens

I paid too heavy a price for perestroika. -Mikhail Gorbachev

People with high levels of wellbeing have been careful to work out early in the morning and not to have heavy meals throughout the day because you kind of fall off a cliff in terms of your energy by 2 or 3:00 if you have a lunch with a lot of heavy foods. -Tom Rath

The IMAX cameras are big and heavy. And they're loud. So you have to be mindful of whether or not they're worth it; I'd say the image quality is incredible and the scale is amazing. -Nina Jacobson

My act's not heavy on pop culture or stories, just lots of jokes. -Judah Friedlander

I'm not one of those kind of people who does the observational 'Hey, don't you hate it when you're at the grocery store and the line's long and the cash register starts taking too long.' I don't really do that kind of stuff. I'm heavy on persona, and I do a lot of interacting with the audience. -Judah Friedlander

The power chords in 'Come Sail Away' were super heavy to me as a kid. Metal? No. Hard rock? At times, for sure. -Eddie Trunk

One thing people would be surprised about is that although hard rock and heavy metal are without question 90% of what I listen to and my passion, there are other things I enjoy. My first ever favorite band in my life before KISS was a power-pop band called The Raspberries. -Eddie Trunk

Black Sabbath invented heavy metal, in my opinion. -Eddie Trunk

There are some actresses that can't do comedy; it's too heavy-handed. -Bob Newhart

Kant's style is so heavy that after his pure reason, the reader longs for unreasonableness. -Alfred Nobel

If you looked at my iPod, you would get a trip out of all the different music, from the real heavy metal to bluegrass to classical. -Eric Close

Being in the dark, there's a real weight to it. It's heavy. -Amanda Lindhout

There's a particular style that is very Peru that you don't see anywhere else; it's got so many different imprints. When you mix Incan minimalism with the heavy, ornate Spanish Baroque, it is very interesting. -Mario Testino

A lot of people are surprised by my love of heavy metal. I fell in love with heavy metal almost before any other genre. One of the first concerts I went to was a Donnington Monsters Of Rock concert. -Jamie Cullum

I think rap music is rap music. I mean, are there heavy writing aspects of it? Absolutely. In a sense, is it poetry? Yeah. I've heard that so much, growing up in a house with poetry. But I think people like to use that as a shortcut for who's good and who's not. It's like the word 'lyrical' – 'lyrical' is the worst word in the entire world. -Earl Sweatshirt

Belts distract the eye from a bloated tummy, a heavy-set upper body and all manner of sins. They can be a superb way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank, and there's no reason to stop wearing them, ever! -Twiggy

If you're a kid, it's all you think about if you stutter. Kids can be so mean. My grades suffered. Class participation weighs heavy in grading, and I wouldn't open my mouth to read or talk in front of anyone. -Kenyon Martin

With Pantera, we lived through so many trend-of-the-day situations – when grunge was huge, we were still a heavy metal band; when hip-hop started getting incorporated into metal, we stuck to our guns and remained a heavy metal band very purposefully. -Phil Anselmo

You gotta look beyond the mainstream… the mainstream'll drown you, you know? There's always a pulse in the underground that I love. And the pulse in the underground is what keeps heavy metal alive. -Phil Anselmo

Pantera revolutionized the sound and the approach to heavy metal. It's been regurgitated. Once you up the production on a product and not just the playing but the actual production, then it's going to up the ante. -Phil Anselmo

In 1973 I became heavyweight champion of the world with 38 victories, no defeats as a professional. You get to a point where you think you cannot lose. I felt like I had the greatest power with my fists, I was the strongest man in the world. -George Foreman

If you learn to sell, it's worth more than a degree. It's worth more than the heavyweight championship of the world. It's even more important than having a million dollars in the bank. Learn to sell, and you'll never starve. -George Foreman

You really have to be careful with the clues you lay into the film – if they're too heavy-handed, or you've pandered to a slightly stupider audience, then you've spoiled it for the people who are even slightly smart. -Ben Wheatley

I love heavy music, but you see, I had fallen in love with a radio station in Vegas that played nothing but Eighties music. That had a real profound impact on me. -Dave Keuning

Charles Wang, owner of the New York Islanders, serves as something of a cautionary tale in terms of how heavy owner involvement can sink a franchise. -Don Yaeger

Jack Palance was my distant uncle – that's the family gossip. Growing up, my family knew everything about his face getting burned and scarred in the military and how that mutilation led him to become such a famous 'heavy' in films. I prayed for good scars of my own. Not just acne scars. -Chuck Palahniuk

I wear tinted moisturized since, on the stage, we tend to wear such heavy stage makeup. -Emilia Clarke

Playing a show is a monumental hassle. You've got to schlep all your heavy equipment into the van, then you've got to drive for five hours, then you have to schlep all the heavy equipment out of the van, onto the stage, set it up, do the sound check, hang around for three hours, then play the show, which is incredibly draining. -Juliana Hatfield

My first professional job was to sell heavy-duty waterless cookware. -Zig Ziglar

Strictly speaking, intensity in the weight training context refers to the amount of work required to achieve the activity and is proportional to the mass of the weights being lifted – that is, how heavy the weight is relative to how strong you are. -John Romaniello

Being listened to and being heard is an experience that doesn't happen terribly often. To listen compassionately or nonjudgmentally to another person – not to get too heavy about it – but I once heard somebody say that was a form of real prayer. -Gabriel Byrne

I was going to McDonald's and Taco Bell every day. The kids behind the counter knew me – it wouldn't even faze them. Or I'd sit up at Denny's or Big Boy and just eat by myself. It was sad. I got so heavy that people started to not recognize me. -Eminem

Many think that the price of discipleship is too costly and too burdensome. For some, it involves giving up too much. But the cross is not as heavy as it appears to be. Through obedience, we acquire much greater strength to carry it. -James E. Faust

It's a heavy duty to try to do everything and please everybody. My job was to go out there and play the game of basketball as best I can and provide entertainment for everyone who wanted to watch basketball. Obviously, people may not agree with that; again, I can't live with what everyone's impression of what I should or what I shouldn't do. -Michael Jordan

It makes no difference to me what kind of bat I have. For instance, I often grab the first bat I come across when I go up to the plate. Muggsy McGraw uses a light stick and Jake Stenzel uses a heavy one, but I'm liable to take any one of the miscellaneous lot that falls in my way. -Joe Kelley

I'd say we are traditionalist. We are heavy on discipline and relatively strict and structured. But we also make sure our children feel not just physically safe but emotionally safe, like they can come to us with anything. -Mona Sutphen

If you look at the ecological circuitry of this planet, the ways in which materials like carbon or sulfur or phosphorous or nitrogen get cycled in ways that makes them available for our biology, the organisms that do the heavy lifting are bacteria. -Andrew H. Knoll

When I was a kid, I loved a heavy metal band called Motley Crue. I was thirteen when they came to my city, and I called every hotel in the Yellow Pages asking for a room by the name of their manager in hopes of meeting the band. After two or three hours of calling hotels, I got through, and the manager's brother answered the phone. -Steve-O

When I was in school, sport was given utmost importance. I think it's fantastic for character building, for team playing, and I think it's a great profile for a nation. One in every six people on Earth is an Indian, and I look forward to the day when we can compete with the heavyweights of the sporting world and do well in the medal tally. -Abhishek Bachchan

For me, Gothic is something from my youth, when I had a heavy metal phase. -Ann Demeulemeester

My first experience with the creative was mopping tar. If you let the tar sit, it can get cold pretty quickly. And because the mops are so heavy, you've got to dip it and then ride it really fast. -Theaster Gates

Every August, I go away for four weeks to a place in Michigan. I work in the mornings, spend the month in shorts and flip-flops. It gives me time to think like an investor and come back in September for some heavy planning. -Joe Mansueto

Occasionally I've seen children become heavy-handed and insensitive when dealing with their aging parents, and it only caused resentment and hard feelings. -Billy Graham

In the new series of 'Foyle's War,' London starts to get bombed, and the country falls under heavy attack. It affects people's sense of well-being, their sense of the future and their concerns for their family and friends. -Anthony Howell

I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives. -Ann Voskamp

Oh, how miserable it is to have no one to share your sorrows and joys, and, when your heart is heavy, to have no soul to whom you can pour out your woes. -Frederic Chopin

I lift quite heavy weights, but unfortunately no one believes me. -Cyrus Broacha

I'm not very into pastas or heavy foods like meat, but pastries, especially if they come from a really nice French bakery, I go crazy over! I try to allow myself those little treats in the morning for breakfast, then I have a lighter lunch. -Barbara Fialho

The book of 'The Hobbit' was given to me to read by a friend of my mother when I was about 12 years old: it set my life on a different path. Next, I read 'The Lord of The Rings' trilogy, then 'The Silmarillion' and Homers 'The Odyssey' and every Greek/Roman/Viking myth book I could get my hands on. Pretty heavy reading for a 12 year old. -Conan Stevens

One week, you can have a real heavy romance 'Chuck' episode, and the next week it can be some kind of murdery mystery. It's not like doing a procedural. -Robert Duncan McNeill

I write almost all my songs on an acoustic guitar, even if they turn into rock songs, hard rock songs, metal songs, heavy metal songs, really heavy songs… I love writing on an acoustic because I can hear what every string is doing; the vibrations haven't been combined in a collision of distortion or effects yet. -Corey Taylor

I'd grown up in a working class neighborhood in Baltimore, a place hard hit by the offshoring of numerous heavy industries – steel, textile, shipbuilding. -Philipp Meyer

Seafaring can be lucrative – the elite, such as gas-tanker captains, can earn $100,000 for six months' work – but the isolation is a heavy price to pay. -Rose George

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

Clearly, enriching the cosmos with heavy elements takes a while. So there's inevitably an interval between the sterile aftermath of the Big Bang and a time when the cosmic chemistry set had enough ingredients to make rocky planets (and squishy biology). -Seth Shostak

The central region of the Milky Way, known as the bulge, is stuffed with literally tens of billions of stars. And most of these are old – considerably older than our Sun or its neighbors – because this part of the galaxy formed first. Consequently, bulge stars are generally deficient in heavy elements. -Seth Shostak

Thanh Hoa itself is a rich agricultural province. Rice fields, a pattern of many shades of green, stretch far into the distance along the road, which also winds through foothills and the fringes of heavy jungle where tigers are said to roam. The vegetation, wild or cultivated, is lush. -Noam Chomsky

There is a heavy emphasis in Mormonism on initiative, on responsibility, on a work ethic, and on education. If you take those elements together with a free-enterprise system, you've got the chemistry for a lot of industry. -Stephen Covey

I try to do something every day. I lift weights at least three to four days per week, and I'll intersperse that with cardio. For example, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I'll run and do heavy lifting, and on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I'll spend two hours lifting weights, as well as something like swimming. -Misty May-Treanor

I'm about 5' 10", and my hair is the length of my whole body now. We grow our hair because of faith, but it's getting heavy. Most of the rastas I know with hair my length are elders, and they keep it tied up, but for a young person who's active and running around, the weight is a big thing. So to play sports, I put it in a backpack. -Damian Marley

My ego thinks I would like to be considered for more heavyweight roles, but the price you pay for that is they are always the same kind of roles. -Steffan Rhodri

It's great that I can look up a fact instantly on my cellphone, but I miss the days in my room with a dog-eared, text-heavy paperback, immersed in the statistics of crime and punishment and lunacy, completely alone with the narrative of human depravity. -Russell Smith

I realised that a lot of women felt the same way I did – they didn't want to wear heavy make-up, but, for whatever reason, there were elements in their skin they want to smooth out or cover. -Louise Nurding

If I'm watching my favorite boxer, and he's just won the heavyweight championship of the world, and he retires, it kind of makes the guy a legend. -Nikki Sixx

Go ahead, weathercasters and reporters: Tell Americans precisely what we don't want to hear: namely, that our self-indulgent, carbon-heavy, gluttonous and disposable lifestyle is precisely what is churning up the angry response from the skies and seas. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

In conventional oil and natural gas production, you always produce a lot of formation water, and it's crummy water. It's real salty. It's got heavy metals in it. It's got bad stuff in it. -Rex Tillerson

I had a strong vision for 'The Best Man Holiday,' so I was able to translate that to the actors and ultimately to the screen. Things can't get too heavy or too outrageously funny; it has to strike a balance. Tone is everything. If you've set the right tone, you can get away with a lot of stuff. You can get away with making people cry. -Malcolm D. Lee

Relatively mild gusts of wind blow some trees down. Graceful palm trees, for example, are lovely to look at but will not stand up in a heavy wind because they are not well anchored. -Joseph B. Wirthlin

Canberra was my home for many years, and there's a lot to love about it. It has a small population with a strong sense of community and is top-heavy with interesting, highly educated, socially progressive people – the opposite of the stereotypical image of dull public servants. -Judy Horacek

I found the iPad to be too large and heavy to use comfortably in casual situations (like reading in bed, for example), and too limited to use as a replacement for my laptop. By comparison, the Nexus 7 is just the right size for use anywhere – it's very similar in size to my daughter's Kindle Fire, but lighter. -John Battelle

Many people think making a film about history… about war… about the Holocaust, it might be heavy, dramatic and traumatic. I don't see things like that… you can find irony everywhere. It's how I look at life. -Arnon Goldfinger

I'm always striving to lose weight. And it's not a matter of wanting to be a size 3 again – I brought out my leotards, and a friend thought they were doll clothes. Being heavy isn't good for you. How long can your heart take the strain? So, I never give up, but it's hard. -Liz Torres

If I really want to be heard, I have that command, but a lot of heavy women don't. When I see someone heavy working on television, I say, 'Oh, God, go girl. You do it.' You know, it shouldn't stop your life. -Liz Torres

'Joker' was a violent, dark, and brutal book, so I wanted to do something a little less heavy. I played around with the idea of a children's book, and that eventually became 'Noel.' And I just kept finding these parallels between things I could do with Batman and Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol.' -Lee Bermejo

I did a short film at Outfest, 'Where Are the Dolls,' based on an Elizabeth Bishop poem done, where I play this woman who is sort of walking the streets and ends up alone dancing in a club. I have this hot and heavy scene with a very beautiful actress. It became very popular. -Megan Follows

I do heavy weights in the morning for about an hour, and then I do 45 minutes of higher-volume lifting in the afternoon. My least favorite is the legs… I do quite a few chin-ups and rows. I do mostly old-school lifting with a lot of squats. -Hugh Jackman

I ate fantastic Italian food in Croatia, which you wouldn't expect. The food in Istanbul was amazing. I never would've expected that and the food, I guess you're learning something about me, the food in Prague, they're very, very heavy meat eaters, like, a lot of meat, which is great. -Cliff Curtis

The last time I really got into new music that wasn't heavy metal was probably like… TV on the Radio? I think that was it. That's the last time. -Tim Schafer

I went to see President Nixon at the White House. It wasn't difficult to get a meeting because I was heavyweight champion of the world.

My mom allowed me to take an old burlap bag and fill it with moss, corn stalks and rocks, then hang it from a tree and spend an hour a day punching my heavy bag. -Joe Frazier

The score I always have on heavy repeat is 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark!' -Neil Marshall

A little light on the RPG elements but heavy on action, 'Mass Effect 2' was the game that created a world of characters that I actually cared about. When it came down to making those tough decisions during the final mission, I actually had to put the controller down and think about my choices. -Rob Manuel

Guns are heavy metal machines, and, at least in my case, it's surprising how many hours it takes before it looks like you know what you're doing. Releasing and re-loading magazines is difficult when you're asked to do it quickly and efficiently. -Trieste Kelly Dunn

The gay bunting erects his white crest, and gives utterance to the joy he feels in the presence of his brooding mate; the willow grouse on the rock crows his challenge aloud; each floweret, chilled by the night air, expands its pure petals; the gentle breeze shakes from the blades of grass the heavy dewdrops. -John James Audubon

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

I'm not in a position to tell heavy people anything. -Tyra Banks

Some actors specialize in shooting weapons and punching people. Some have the market on playing buffoons cornered, others specialize in roles that require heavy makeup or outrageous wardrobe. Some trade exclusively in a post-ironic blase attitude. -Rob Lowe

I had had some successes in the '90s, always made money, but the truth was I was like a man pushing a boulder up a hill. A huge, heavy, difficult boulder made up of some career mistakes, projects that didn't meet expectations, and twenty years of being a known quantity. -Rob Lowe

I've worked in a few sort of 'institutional' theaters – the Royal Shakespeare, the National Theater in England – and they're hopelessly top-heavy with bureaucracy. -Tim Curry

I've done a lot of dramas, and I've done a lot of serious stuff – some really heavy stuff… which I loved, but I wanted to do something light and airy. I think the challenge for an actor is always to see which parts of you you can explore and go have fun with. -Ally Walker

When my hair is curly, I use Suave coconut conditioner. It's not a leave-in, but I use it like one. It is so light and really brings out my hair's curl. A lot of leave-ins are too heavy, but this one is just perfect. When it's straight, I love Frederick Fekkai Tech Shampoo & Conditioner and their Olive Oil glossing cream. -Adrienne Bailon

I used to be a very, very heavy weight lifter. I weighed about 210, 215. And I used to put a lot of weight on my back. I squatted over 500 pounds. -Montel Williams

When people are in the midst of really heavy stuff and still have a sense of humor, I admire that. -Ted Danson

I was heavy as a kid. I mean, I kind of got it together for a while there in my 20s and early 30s. -Jason Alexander

Having cancer is a lonely experience. It is the one time in your life that you cannot ask those closest to you, 'What should I do?' It's too heavy a burden to place on another person. This is your life, your decision, and cancer kills. -Suzanne Somers

Artificial sweeteners may trigger cravings for other sweet foods. When your body is not fed nutrients, it asks again and again for more food, triggering heavy-duty cravings for fattening, sugary foods. Artificial sweeteners also mess with your metabolism. -Suzanne Somers

The armed forces are paying a lot more attention to the use of energy. The Air Force has realized that the paint on planes is heavy, so there are going to be a lot more silver planes, or planes painted in a less heavy way, so that you are using less fuel to get from point A to point B. -George P. Shultz

I always lift weights very heavy and spend a lot of time in the weight room. -Mark Teixeira

Outside of 'Justified,' I do like to keep it to comedy. When I'm not there, I try to seek out stuff that sort of more along the lighter fare. I have more fun on those sets than I do on drama sets just because when it's heavy, it's heavy, and it's hard to get away from it. -Natalie Zea

I associate heavy metal with fantasy because of the tremendous power that the music delivers. -Christopher Lee

I'm not concerned that my stuff isn't extreme. I don't want to be heavy. I can't think of another attitude to have toward an audience than a hopeful and a positive one. And if that includes such unfashionable things as sentimentality, well, I can afford it. -Robert Palmer

My mum was very conscious about fashion, and my dad was born into the tailoring tradition, so fashion has always been my life, although now, really, I wear the same thing – just in different weights – light and heavy cashmere in winter and cotton in summer. And jeans. -Domenico Dolce

Do we really need these big, gigantic, heavy rockets? What if we launch a rocket that's empty, and its sole purpose is to act as a source of fuel on the Moon? Who should build that? Well, I think the U.S. should build that. -Buzz Aldrin

Heavy lifting doesn't need to be heavy spending if we do the job right. -Buzz Aldrin

For me, I believe George Foreman was a bad example because when he became world heavyweight champion again at 42, that made a lot of fighters think they could also carry on. -Marvin Hagler

Of any guitarist, Jimmy Page was my biggest influence. I wanted to look, think and play like him. Zeppelin had a heavy influence on Rush during our early days. Page's loose style of playing showed an immense confidence, and there are no rules to his playing. -Alex Lifeson

I love Soul, R+B, Electronic, and good pop. Really, the only thing I don't listen to is country and heavy metal. I love Marvin Gaye, John Legend, Al Green, Fat Freddys Drop, Sade, Grace Jones, Bazoo Bijou, Prince, John Lennon, London Grammar, Daft Punk, Dr John, Dusty Springfield, Peggy Lee, Gotye, and on it goes. -Jane Badler

I don't like a heavy mask of make-up day or night – mascara and a bit of bronzer. -Cate Blanchett

In any film, there are 10 male roles for 1 female role, especially in the action films. They're heavy with the guys. -Marcia Gay Harden

If I'm going to be a pessimist, then I should just stop writing for young people because that's too heavy a burden to put on young readers. But also, I get to meet with people who have waded through horrible things, and they get up every morning, and they try to do their best. -Deborah Ellis

I guess that I'm primarily thought of as a rocker, largely because of 'Frankenstein' being such a heavy song – you know, it was really hard rock, almost a precursor of heavy metal and just the image of the synthesizer. I happened to be the first guy to get the idea of putting a strap on the keyboard. -Edgar Winter

I hate dream sequences in movies and T.V. shows generally for their heavy-handed symbolism and storytelling tediousness. -Ira Glass

Soon it will be a sin of parents to have a child that carries the heavy burden of genetic disease. We are entering a world where we have to consider the quality of our children. -Robert Edwards

Because I'm a big guy, I was always playing the bad guy or whatever, but after I did 'The Blind Side,' where I played a father who's a really loving, likeable sort of person, a lot of those barriers were broken down. People saw me as something softer, not so much as a heavy anymore. -Omar Dorsey

I'm an intense person. My own vision of life has always been heavy. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

It was the Victorians who covered the piano legs and drew a heavy curtain over what a lady got up to in her boudoir. -Laurie Graham

When people say, 'Your music was the music of the Seventies,' I say, 'So was discoteque.' The Seventies was also the highest peak of heavy metal. Pick a genre – they were all alive. -Gerry Beckley

I'm not a malicious person. When you get past the tattoos and leather, I give people a fair shake. There are periods when I've sowed some wild oats, no doubt about it. And I can party with some of the heavyweights. There are some stories about me that, yeah, where there's smoke there's fire. But sometimes the smoke is just smoke. -Al Jourgensen

Look at Cillian Murphy: 'Batman,' 'Tron'… those are some heavy-hitting franchises. But he works his way around it. He manages to have a great career and a great life. -Domhnall Gleeson

With vocal and choral music, first and foremost, it's the text. Not only do I need to serve the text, but the text – when I'm doing it right – acts as the perfect 'blueprint', and all the architecture is there. The poet has done the heavy lifting, so my job is to find the soul of the poem and then somehow translate that into music. -Eric Whitacre

Anders Thomas Jensen and I had talked about making a movie which addressed the cancer issue, and we didn't want to make it heavy-handed. We wanted to do something which had a lot of hope in it. And then for some reason we came up with a romantic comedy. -Susanne Bier

If I gamble, I'll play roulette. My wife and I will play roulette, and that's about it. I'm not a heavy gambler. -Tracy Morgan

When I started making music, I was so heavy into the hyphy movement. That's something you only know so much about if you were right there living in it, submerged in the culture. -G-Eazy

I'm doing a pilot for Comedy Central with the band Steel Panther. They're faux heavy metal. They started as kind of a tribute band out here, or a cover band, and they're funny guys, and they just sort of morphed into their own thing. -Brian Posehn

I used to see my friend Harland Williams in a lot of auditions. Then you'd see one of the DeLuise kids because they're kind of heavy and character-y. You'd just see a lot of the same guys over the years. -Brian Posehn

I definitely talk about my love of metal to audiences, and I sort of realized it was always natural and never, 'Well, I'm going to be the heavy-metal comedian.' -Brian Posehn

I've got the best parents you could ever ask for. My parents are from New Jersey, and they met in Vermont in college. My Dad grew up listening to heavy, psychedelic music. He's my biggest fan. -King Tuff

People like Art Blakey and Buddy Rich, you look at them playing music, and it's just like looking at a heavy metal drummer. I mean, they're playing with the same amount of ferocity. It's not to say all jazz is like that. -Damien Chazelle

We had to understand things like why the top quark was so heavy and the electron is so light. The Higgs is a big, important step. -Fabiola Gianotti

I have a pretty fast metabolism, so I don't really have to worry about getting pudgy. What I try to do when I'm working out is taking in a lot of heavy protein – clean chicken, clean meats. -Chris Evans

It's a heavy burden to look up at the mountain and want to start the climb. -Abby Wambach

In 'Kill Rock n' Roll,' the choruses came about at the moment I was listening to a lot of the Supremes, and if you listen to that part, you can hear a melody and a harmony there that's not too far away from what the Supremes would probably be doing, but there's heavy guitars in the back. -Daron Malakian

It's funny: I kinda still float under the radar. I'm not tall like a New York Knick; I'm not a heavy, strong New York Giant or New York Jet. I blend in pretty well. A lot of people don't recognize me too many places. More men recognize me than women. -Curtis Granderson

It's like fiction – the fact that somebody's telling you a story about people who didn't exist doesn't make the experience of the story any less real in your heart and mind. You go through heavy emotional responses to these stories, and wrestling is a similar thing – but it's happening in real space. -John Darnielle

Some leaders think time will solve the problem. Their hope is that Assad's regime will ultimately fall from the heavy toll of the horrors it has spawned. From past experience with such regimes, this scenario is unlikely to happen. -Ahmed Zewail

I'm into heavy duty, psychedelic, foreign music. That's what I like listening to. -Action Bronson

At the beginning, I experienced writing as a sort of constraint. Starting so young as a writer is pitiable: it's beyond your powers; you have to lay bare things that are very heavy, and you don't have the means for that. -Patrick Modiano

I used to tease Joe Louis by reminding him that I was the greatest of all time. But Joe Louis was the greatest heavyweight fighter ever. -Muhammad Ali

For 'The Trip To Bountiful,' I was worried about being too heavy, because I supposedly had just gotten out of the hospital. -John Heard

My twenties were my practice. My thirties were when I really hit my stride with GoPro and did all the heavy lifting to build the business. -Nick Woodman

I concentrate on making everything strong, and you can't do that with just cardio. I strength-train one day – and I'm not talking heavy weights, just a little. I see my trainer one day, next day I take a yoga class or cook. I'm not someone who just opens a pantry and rustles something up. -Jessica Biel

At the Jets training facility in Florham Park, N.J., we have strength and conditioning staff but also a nutritionist, Glen Tobias, who helps to whip everyone into shape. There is a heavy emphasis on grass-fed meat and on foods that aren't genetically modified. -D'Brickashaw Ferguson

I always work with the tempo of the energy of the character, whether he's fast or slow, or heavy or light. -Mads Mikkelsen

A script is so word-heavy, after trying to communicate so much verbally, I think you need a different outlet to give the verbal centre of your brain a chance to cool off. -David Alpay

Our biggest fear is that 'Food, Inc.' will move heavy-handed food-safety regulations forward. -Joel Salatin

An African woman carries heavy loads anyway. That's how we are trained; we are brought up that nothing is unbearable. I use that now, positively. I use that now to have the thick skin that I have, and not fear, and move forward, and push; and push forward. -Joyce Banda

You ask how I feel to be the first female president in southern Africa? It's heavy for me. Heavy in the sense that I feel that I'm carrying this heavy load on behalf of all women. -Joyce Banda

Growing up, I was picked on a bit; I was pretty heavy-set, and then I was a theater kid. I just felt unpopular and uncool, so I think in my mind I had this idea of fame and being popular and how nice that would be. The reality of it is sometimes it's not nice. -Jack Falahee

I think when you're dealing with very tenuous scenes and difficult and heavy subject matter, it's important to be close intimately with your cast as friends, and be able to diffuse a lot of that tension and trust each other with the work. -Jack Falahee

At 18, I moved to L.A. with my heavy metal band Avant Garde, which was very much influenced by Metallica. At 19, I got a job at Tower Records, and everything started to change very quickly. I started listening to the Velvet Underground, Pixies, early Nirvana, Sonic Youth, and also earlier music like the Beatles. -Rivers Cuomo

My style is clubby and groovy – you can jump to it, but you don't just have to just jump to it. It's not just really bass-heavy and hurts your ears; you move with it, and it sounds kind of tribal. -Ansel Elgort

Depending upon my activities, I sleep between five and ten hours every night. I sleep in an extra-wide single bed, and I use only one heavy down comforter over me, summer or winter. I have never been able to wear pajamas or creepy nightgowns; they disturb my sleep. -Marilyn Monroe

Years ago on my radio show, I used to say, 'I'm a conservative, but I'm not in a bad mood about it.' I've always believed that civility in heavy doses is essential in self-government. -Mike Pence

When you're writing stuff that's already clotted with neologisms and trying to get across fairly abstruse concepts, you're already putting a heavy burden on the reader. -Alastair Reynolds

Anything that anybody wants to give me is great! I've had folk songs, heavy metal songs, jewellery… I would never call anything any fan gives me weird, as it's how people express what they like about the books, what it means to them, and that's a wonderful thing. -Patrick Ness

Novels are one of the few remaining areas of narrative storytelling where one person does almost all of the creative heavy lifting. -Charles Stross

On a visit to Cologne in March 1945, after a heavy bombing, I met hundreds and hundreds of deserters who were squatting in the rubble, many in the deep cellars left from Roman times. They had been hiding there after the retreat from France. -Heinrich Boll

I've climbed Stromboli when it's erupting, which is quite a heavy climb: three hours with a helmet to get to the top. When you're there, and it's dark, and you can see this eruption and feel it, it's quite different to watching it on TV. -Michelle Paver

Journalists dedicate their lives to covering war – they make many personal sacrifices, and it's not something that's gender-based. In a place like Libya where there's heavy fighting, it doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman. -Lynsey Addario

Most people are remarkably resilient. Even those who have been through war or great loss often find reservoirs of strength. But the legacy of trauma is a heavy burden to bear. -Christina Baker Kline

My parents and grandparents listened to bacheta heavy, the true bachata from back in the day – Juan Luis Guerra, Anthony Santos. I liked the genre, but I remember thinking, 'OK, enough of this.' I would sing Usher's 'U Remind Me' to the girls in school. -Prince Royce

When I'm in heavy-duty writing mode, there's something great about reading a series. Soothing, but not distracting too much. -Lauren Willig

The worst thing for a filmmaker is for a film to be labeled as pretentious or heavy-handed. -John Curran

We anticipate countries increasing their spending on infrastructure like railways, airports, power plants and ports. Our heavy forging plant has the capacity to cater to each of these segments. -Baba Kalyani

My favorite way to cook a clam is in chowder. I was a New Yorker for 20 years, and I always loved tomato-based, celery-heavy Manhattan chowders. -Kate Christensen

I fear that light touch regulations that have allowed the Internet to prosper will now be replaced by a heavy hand that stifles innovation and does not adapt well to change. The Internet is not broken. -Marsha Blackburn

Claiming that solid rockets are necessary for a heavy-lift launcher is obvious nonsense. -Henry Spencer

An experienced designer with more freedom to act might have realised that there was just too much optimism in the Ares I concept: that a shuttle SRB was simply too small as a first stage for a rocket carrying the relatively heavy Orion spacecraft. -Henry Spencer

Testing a parachute drop of a heavy object is not simple. -Henry Spencer

Aging gracefully is about no heavy makeup, and not too much powder because it gets into the wrinkles, and, you know, to not get turtle eyelids and to not try to look young. -Iris Apfel

Our human experience, like the World War II Ultra code-breaking machine, catches the heavy traffic of messages about what we really do and what is done to us every day. -Eugene Kennedy

In America, burial means an embalmed body in a heavy-duty casket with a vault built over it, so that the ground doesn't settle. That body is encased in many layers of denial. -Caitlin Doughty

Liberal redistributionists in favor of heavy taxation place less weight on incentive than do small-government conservatives. -Edmund Phelps

I have a lot of friends who are in love the '90s. Girls, boys. '90s music? That's Tupac. That's Biggie. That's TLC. That's Aaliyah. I still listen to Aaliyah. I still listen to Tupac and Biggie. There's people who are really heavy on that culture. -Shameik Moore

History is the heavy traffic that prevents us from crossing the road. We wait, more or less patiently, for it to pause, so that we can get to the liquor store or the laundromat or the burger bar. -Mal Peet

All my life, I have loved balloons – all balloons – the heavy English sort, immense and round, that have to be pushed about, and the gay, light, gas-filled French ones that soar into the air the moment you let go of them. -Elizabeth Bibesco

Isn't that what love means, to fill ordinary, commonplace, conventional things with magic and significance, not to need the moon and white scent-heavy flowers at night? -Elizabeth Bibesco

My first memory of the public library is of lugging home a volume of Norse myths as heavy as a thunder-god's hammer. -Dave Morris

We ourselves hold the instrument that makes us fat. I just shake my head when I see someone eating cake and saying, 'Oh, I wish I wasn't heavy.' But they keep eating the cake! -Jean Nidetch

Because I've been a full professor doing research and lecturing at the University of California, I didn't have a lot of time to write, so I have always used my unconscious a great deal to do the really heavy lifting. -Gregory Benford

Considerations of plot do a great deal of heavy lifting when it comes to long-form narrative – readers will overlook the most ham-fisted prose if only a writer can make them long to know what happens next. -Lynn Coady

I still find the idea of a research-heavy or historical novel daunting. That's something I've had in mind for a while: like, would you research for a year and then start writing? I sit down, and I just don't know how to write it. -Lynn Coady

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

I still have the Triumph Palm Beach I was given for Christmas when I was 11. By today's standards, it is heavy and slow, but was my pride and joy at the time. -Jeremy Corbyn

If I'm going to see people, I won't wear heavy makeup. It's not attractive on me. When you see those pictures on my Instagram, they are usually for when I'm doing a photo shoot or an interview. -Kylie Jenner

One of the reasons I love devils so much is not based in my faith, but because as a kid, I grew up loving heavy metal and horror movies, and the devil is such a huge presence in both. -Victor LaValle

In some cases, it's not just about cleaning up the factories. It's about cleaning up the nearby rivers and lakes that have been tainted with heavy metals. -Ma Jun

China should cut heavy industries' share in gross domestic output by 9 percentage points between 2013 and 2030 to meet its pollution cuts target. -Ma Jun

China's energy is very much focused on coal, and the economy is very focused on heavy industry, which is carbon intensive, so restructuring won't be easy. -Ma Jun

I began writing poems when I was about eight, with a heavy assist from my mother. She read me Arthur Waley's translations and Whitman and Robinson Jeffers, who have been lifelong influences on me. My father read Keats to me, and then he read more Keats while I was lying on the sofa struggling with asthma. -Carolyn Kizer

I was at a book convention, in a cab. On one side of me was Arthur Schlesinger; on the other side was William Manchester – real heavyweights. All they were doing was asking me about Charles Manson. The only thing that enables me not to be bored is the people talking about it – they're so interested. -Vincent Bugliosi

We all know the Red Sox did not win a World Series for 86 years after unloading Ruth, and the Cubs just might be carrying some heavy weight for past karmic transgressions. -George Vecsey

It just feels good to know the work I did, people like it and love it – and continue to like and love it. It makes me feel real good that, after 20 years, 'Regulate' is still in heavy rotation all over the United States and all over the world. -Warren G

We have a fair on our farm every year – a gymkhana and a dog show and a funfair and a heavy-horse show. It was my idea. Be careful what you wish for – it's a monster. -Martin Clunes

My reputation was built on hostility. I had no friends and some very virulent enemies in the old-guard art scene when I began. They threw their heavy artillery against me. They were convinced I was perverting the public taste. -Betty Parsons

I feel like I'm way too young to wear such heavy makeup all the time. It's just bad for your skin, but I'm always doing photo shoots or red carpets and events, so I obviously want to look good. -Kylie Jenner

The high esteem in which the Nobel Prizes are held is undoubtedly due to the conscientious way in which the Committees have discharged a heavy responsibility. -Ernest Walton

Without thinking or reflecting, we plunge into war, contract heavy debts, increase vastly the patronage of the Executive, and indulge in every species of extravagance, without thinking that we expose our liberty to hazard. It is a great and fatal mistake. -John C. Calhoun

Boxing is a dying sport, really. Years ago, the world heavyweight champion could be said to have reached the highest pinnacle of sport. Even in this country, boxers were heroes. Think of Henry Cooper and Frank Bruno. -Tyson Fury

Although I think of myself as the greatest heavyweight, I do respect the legends of the past for what they did. But they are not my heroes. -Tyson Fury

There are 7 billion people in the world, but there's only one heavyweight champion of the world, and that's me. -Tyson Fury

Wilder is not a big draw in the U.S. He maybe sells 5,000 to 10,000 tickets when he's fighting in his own town for the heavyweight champion. -Tyson Fury

I set out in the beginning to be the heavyweight champion of the world. From a very young age, I was going to be the heavyweight champion of the world. Nothing else was a problem to me. That's what I'll finish doing. -Tyson Fury

I'm really excited about my future plans, as I'm doing things differently and currently training like a Trojan in pursuit of becoming heavyweight champion of the world. -Tyson Fury

If you labor heavily upon a work of art, then part of what you are saying is, 'This is a heavy work of art.' If you happen to be trying to say something about lightness, then the art should be light as well. -Chris Raschka

When we're 16, we have lots of heavy thoughts. And these are the heavy thoughts, where, when we're in our 30s, we look at 16-year olds and sort of scorn it. -Greg Rucka

Read some good, heavy, serious books just for discipline: Take yourself in hand and master yourself. -W. E. B. Du Bois

The human soul is heavy, clumsy, held in the mud of the flesh. Its perceptions are still coarse and brutish. It can divine nothing clearly, nothing with certainty. -Nikos Kazantzakis

A weak soul does not have the endurance to resist the flesh for very long. It grows heavy, becomes flesh itself, and the contest ends. But among responsible men, men who keep their eyes riveted day and night upon the Supreme Duty, the conflict between flesh and spirit breaks out mercilessly and may last until death. -Nikos Kazantzakis

I wrote 'Science For Her!' because I found normal, manly science textbooks to be too intense for my small size-0 brain, and I found normal science textbooks to have covers too heavy for my dainty size-0/size-2-with-bloat hands. -Megan Amram

Saxon, if you are unfamiliar, is a British heavy-metal band that has been around since the mid-'70s and was in no small part the inspiration for Spinal Tap. -Adam Schlesinger

I feel respect is in your hands as an actor when portraying a character, particularly when it's from the Indian subcontinent. I do make a conscious effort to do so and often talk to the directors especially about the heavy accent when it's not needed. -Ajay Mehta

When it comes to space, I see it as my job, I'm building infrastructure the hard way. I'm using my resources to put in place heavy lifting infrastructure so the next generation of people can have a dynamic, entrepreneurial explosion into space. -Jeff Bezos

I am very hopeful that my personal success in Qatar will ignite others, especially those in the so-called non-traditional sports, to try even harder because now they can see for themselves that significant achievements can be attained. But let me stress that it takes a lot of work – in fact, very hard work – mixed with very heavy doses of patience. -Alia Atkinson

Sometimes I had to spend a whole day mixing a boiling mass with a heavy iron rod nearly as large as myself. I would be broken with fatigue at the day's end. Other days, on the contrary, the work would be a most minute and delicate fractional crystallization, in the effort to concentrate the radium. -Marie Curie

When I was in my early to mid-teens, that was a very heavy diet of science fiction and fantasy, so those were the kinds of books I tended to imagine writing someday, or even began to try to write. -Michael Chabon

Before 'Dilbert,' I tried to become a computer programmer. In the early days of computing, I bought this big, heavy, portable computer for my house. I spent two years nights and weekends trying to write games that I thought I would sell. Turns out I'm not that good a programmer, so that was two years that didn't work out. -Scott Adams

Everybody who went to Vietnam carries his or her own version of the war. Only 10 percent engaged in combat; the American elephant, pursuing the Vietnamese grasshopper, was extraordinarily heavy with logistical support. -Pete Hamill

The government generally is just too top-heavy. -John McAfee

There's only so long you can play the silent type standing in the background. 'GoldenEye' was good for that. I was the villain: James Bond was doing all the heavy lifting. I liked that. -Sean Bean

Rawn did her own thing in her own way. She cast the female gaze on a genre heavy with all-male quest fellowships, trophy females, and the occasional Smurfette. Her world was male-dominated and highly patriarchal, but she populated it with notable numbers of well-drawn female characters. -Judith Tarr

An offer to fight Muhammad Ali came after Stevenson won his second Olympic gold in Montreal in 1976. Stevenson was at his peak. The world had never seen a heavyweight with the tools Stevenson brought into the ring. -Brin-Jonathan Butler

At a certain point, Mike Tyson and I reacted to violence a little differently. I was afraid to leave my house for three years while he became the heavyweight champion of the world. The thing was, at first, we reacted to it the same way, and our cowardice and trauma defined us. -Brin-Jonathan Butler

We were looking at ourselves as a store rather than a brand. When you do that, you draw thick, heavy lines around your freedom. -Robert J. Fisher

Israel will continue to act proactively to prevent the transfer of heavy missiles or advanced air defense systems from Syria to Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, which, of course, carries the risk of a military showdown. -Ehud Barak

I have a very heavy-footed walk; I always have. -Christy Turlington

I've been a loner all my life, so it didn't bother me that Hungarian was my first language and that I had to learn English. I had a pretty heavy accent in junior high school and would say things like 'wolume control' instead of 'volume control.' -Tommy Ramone

The first record was basically a quick, fast record. The second record, we were going for more of a poppier sound – like a heavy pop sound. For 'Rocket to Russia,' we'd sort of reached our pinnacle. We'd gotten really good at what we were doing, so that's like my favorite record – that's a really good record. It's just great from beginning to end. -Tommy Ramone

Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, heavy-handedly provoked South American governments on any number of issues, including a rush to endorse the 2002 coup attempt in Venezuela, which only worked to steel resistance and build solidarity. -Greg Grandin

In addition to pain, disability, and disfigurement, lymphatic filariasis carries a heavy social cost. Those disfigured by the disease are often shunned. Women are often rejected by their families. Both men and women can have difficulty finding jobs. -Tom Frieden

It's only natural that the heavy users help contribute to the investment to keep the Web healthy. That is the most important concept of net neutrality. -Lowell McAdam

Style-wise, Valle Nevado is what can only be described as 'hip international.' Brazilians, Chileans and Europeans make the place seem like an electronic music festival transported to an remote Andean valley. Huge speakers blare out thumping, bass-heavy music, while promotoras stalk the staircases selling everything from Red Bull to mobile phones. -Jonathan Franklin

At a time when every series we're supposed to be DVR-ing is very important, very serious, has to do with heavy, heavy matters, I think 'Wet Hot' provides a respite to that DVR homework. It's totally the gummy bears of your programming. -Lake Bell

I've never been a heavy practitioner of the method or, at least, with any specific intent; I'm kind of an impulse-based person. Like, I'm sort of waiting for something to happen that I'm not expecting, and I kind of want to jump on that train of emotion, whatever it is, both from myself or from the other actor. -Liev Schreiber

I believe in myself. I want to be a fighter. I want to be heavyweight champion of the world. -Gerry Cooney

I had two managers who couldn't stand each other. I had a promoter, Don King, who couldn't get any fights, and I was fighting once a year. I knocked out Norton and then didn't fight for 13 months. Then I fight the heavyweight champion of the world. -Gerry Cooney

Unfortunately, this will have a ripple effect in the economy. People carrying heavy student-loan debt won't buy houses, start families, or start businesses. This will hurt the future economy. -Elizabeth Esty

The Freedom Caucus, like many of the members, feel like that we have too much of a top-heavy, power-based type of leadership program where the decisions are made exclusively at the top and that members voices are not heard, which means that our constituents' voices are not heard: those that we represent. -John Fleming

Democrats get credit for money coming into the state, but I do a lot of heavy lifting. -Rodney Frelinghuysen

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

Some movies are entirely too heavy, and some movies have no meat in them. -RJ Cyler

In life, my childish behavior is the good kind, not to where it's annoying and, 'Wow, someone sit him down and give him a bottle, give him a Pamper.' It's like, 'This situation is very heavy, but RJ is here, so he'll lighten things up a little.' -RJ Cyler

When you're growing up, you realize you've got a lot of heavy things on your shoulders. -Nadia Comaneci

There's a clean simplicity to the plotting of 'Sinister,' whether you like it or not. And the scares are deliberate and even heavy-handed in a way. There's not a lot of sophistication or nuance in the plotting and not much restraint in the scares – and that's a part of what makes the movie accessible. -Scott Derrickson

I dressed as the Riddler once, when I was little too heavy to do. I would wear tights. My brother was in a hair metal band, and he had Riddler tights made. My brother's a geek, but he was in a heavy metal band, so I'm a chubby fifteen-year-old, and I borrow his Riddler tights and wear them to school with the package. That wasn't a good idea. -Christopher McCulloch

Many of the original New Deal programs required heavy manual labor. WPA workers built hundreds of schools, health clinics, roads, park facilities, and community centers. Much of what we now call our 'infrastructure' – highways, buildings, power plants, etc. – is here thanks to thousands of WPA workers. -Kathi Appelt

When I was growing up, my family was serious about manners. I always wanted to put my elbow on the table to prop my head up. I didn't understand how other people looked awake. My head felt so heavy after the whole day. -Margherita Missoni

The thing that attracted me to 'CSI' is that these guys are always professional, but underneath, it's teeming with a heavy shadow. Maybe even some decadence and some weirdness with certain characters! And that always intrigued me as an actor. -Paul Guilfoyle

I usually played out and out heavies. No one else 'saw' me in any other role. No one else had ever believed I could be anything but a heavy. It was a heavy in a picture with Clara Kimball Young that June Mathis saw me and decided to cast me as Julio. 'There is the man for Julio,' she said, 'He, and no one other.' -Rudolph Valentino

The raising to life of all animate beings at the resurrection of the dead can be no more difficult for Divine Power than restoring to life a fly in the spring, heavy with the death-stained sleep of winter. -Said Nursi

Today is the first of August. It is hot, steamy and wet. It is raining. I am tempted to write a poem. But I remember what it said on one rejection slip: 'After a heavy rainfall, poems titled 'Rain' pour in from across the nation.' -Sylvia Plath

Since my woman's world is perceived greatly through the emotions and the senses, I treat it that way in my writing – and am often overweighted with heavy descriptive passages and a kaleidoscope of similes. -Sylvia Plath

If, in the schools, the classical language would no longer be taught, whom could we entrust with the writing of memorials, documents, letters and notes in the public service? How could we possibly assign important offices and heavy responsibilities to someone who cannot even write fluently? -Zhang Zhidong

When I was young, I struggled with authorship: with everything the word meant and failed to mean. Irish poetry was heavy with custom. Sometimes at night, when I tried to write, a ghost hand seemed to hold mine. Where could my life, my language fit in? -Eavan Boland

I try to avoid hairspray, gel, and heat as much as I can – I will use a pomade or a very heavy conditioner to style it the way that I want it. -Andra Day

I knew that I could sing when I was young. I would listen to a lot of jazz; I'm a big jazz fan. When I first got to high school and studied musical theater, I could sing. But I added certain things to my voice, and I realized after graduating high school that this is the kind of voice I had. It's not very nimble, but it's heavy. -Andra Day

I love heavy music. I keep Flume nice and melodic, so I save the angry, testosterone-fueled heavy stuff for What So Not. I think it's a good defining thing for the two projects. -Flume

We deploy a full arsenal of tools against voter fraud, including long prison terms, heavy fines and deportation. We have checks and balances at all levels of the system. And we have the Department of Justice prosecutors backing us up. -Kate Brown

The Righteous Brothers got so heavy because of the dramatic hit records like 'Lovin' Feelin.' Bobby and I just felt like we were a couple of Orange County guys who were just having a great time singing rock n' roll, and then, boy, it became something else. -Bill Medley

I'm a really heavy sleeper. When I wake up I'm a terrible morning person. -Flume

Zegna has the perfect weight fabric. There are a lot of designers who make clothes that are a little too heavy. They feel heavy. They almost feel like a coat. -Alec Baldwin

Tell a story with your eyes when you face the camera – it makes all the difference. My best tip for making skin look good in photographs is to go easy on the make-up. You don't want it to look heavy and mask-like. -Thandie Newton

People tell me I'm doing all these intense women and that I should lighten up. Then I do a comedy that I'm not happy with, and I think, 'Let's go back to heavy, heart-breaking drama; it's so much more fun.' -Isabelle Adjani

I've always tried to expand what heavy or loud music was and where it can go and what it can do. -Glenn Danzig

I think that complicated, nuanced, deep, heavy – that's the place to go. That's what makes a great show. That's what all of us deal with in life. -Tracee Ellis Ross

I really love flying, but it's really nice to jump on a plane, sit back, and let someone else do the heavy lifting, but flying is my main passion for sure. -Dierks Bentley

When you're leading Marines, you don't screw around, so the comedy is limited in uniform. And when you're a comedian, you can't be heavy handed and come across with tales of gore or material that people won't understand, so I try to keep them separate. -Rob Riggle

When we went home every winter, they warned us not to lift heavy weights because they didn't want us to lose flexibility. They wanted us to be baseball players, not only home run hitters. -Ryne Sandberg

The Arab population of Palestine are victims of genocidal actions; their lands are confiscated or deprived of water supplies in the semi-desert areas, and their homes are destroyed with heavy wrecking equipment. -Fidel Castro

My dream role is Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight champion. -Mahershala Ali

The Eyemo was heavy and could be noisy. Once, I was in an auditorium filming a speech made by Goebbels when, suddenly, it decided to emit a huge snarling sound. Goebbels froze, and hundreds of uniformed Brownshirts turned and glared at me in anger. It was not a comfortable moment. -Douglas Slocombe

My own personal melting pot has no room for Hendrix or heavy metal, filled as it is with European ancestors such as Debussy, Sibelius, Bartok, Lutoslawski, and Ligeti. -Steven Stucky

'Go Tell It on the Mountain,' its pages heavy with sinners brought low and prayers groaning on the wind, scared me when I read it as a teenager. -Darryl Pinckney

Muhammad Ali inside the ring and Muhammad Ali outside the ring were totally different men; his abrasive, magnetic daring and infectious self-love outside the ring galvanized the world and distracted many from his sniper's precision. He was a heavyweight with the fluttering gracefulness of a middleweight. -Elvis Mitchell

I'm not a fan of that sort of punky, heavy, tinny stuff. I like a nice melody. -George Harrison

People just want to dig; they want to dance. They don't want to work all through the night, and neither do I. I like getting 'out there,' but communication should be occurring on more levels than heavy-laden philosophical. -Kurt Elling

My heart is heavy for the people of Paris, Beirut, and other nations affected by ISIS terrorists. -Ryan Zinke

Use a corrector to do all the heavy lifting under the eyes, not concealer. I spent years re-applying and layering concealer and Touche Eclat under there, when what I really needed was a good, peachy-toned corrector. -Zoe Foster Blake

I have a really feminine voice, but I also feel quite powerful when I write. So my songs feel heavy, and that's how Banks sounds. It's a really short, powerful sound. It almost sounds masculine, and I like having that dichotomy. -Banks

What people would qualify as R&B is, for me, just soul. And I love honesty and soul and heavy, crunchy beats that move you and make you breathe a little bit faster. -Banks

I always felt that, when I saw Denzel or Viola do scenes in their past films or past projects, that if it's a heavy scene, and it's requiring a lot of emotional weight, that we would have nothing but silence and incense burning in between takes just to keep things quiet. -Jovan Adepo

'WrestleMania' was the best day of my life, the greatest opportunity I've ever been afforded, but at the same time, no one wants to lose the main event for the WWE world heavyweight championship. -Roman Reigns

There's no way Daniel Bryan can beat me in a Royal Rumble match. It's ridiculous. He's nowhere near as heavy as me; he doesn't have a fraction of the strength I have. There are a lot of ways that Daniel Bryan can possibly beat me. -Roman Reigns

Hate is a very strong and heavy emotion, probably as strong as love. I don't think I can live with hatred. If something bad happens, you feel bad about it; you forgive and move on. There's no hatred. -Karan Singh Grover

I pass my time in the open air on the beach when it is really heavy weather or when the boats go out fishing. -Claude Monet

It was like a heavyweight fight, man. Just blow for blow, everybody playing their heart out. The Indians never gave up either, and I can't believe we're finally standing, after 108 years, finally able to hoist the trophy. -Ben Zobrist

I think there are ways to get so caught up in your career and being so heavy and dramatic, and everyone wants to be a tortured genius. -Laura Dern

I don't think you have to be in these serious, heavy, independent little movies to be an actor. Some of the most interesting acting I've seen is on cable television. -Laura Dern

That feeling is one of the things that keep me going. On July 6, 1998, I became the WCW heavyweight champion of the world! -Bill Goldberg

Initially, I just used the guitar as a prop. I'd pose with it in front of a mirror in my Kiss makeup when I was skipping school. Then I figured out how to play the main riff to Deep Purple's 'Smoke on the Water' on just the E string. Next, my old man showed me how to play barre chords, and that's when things started getting really heavy. -Dimebag Darrell

That one was stunt heavy. 'Monster Trucks' was a lot of stunts. I got to do some insane stunts they should've never let me do. -Lucas Till

Many shoulder heavy burdens of righteous responsibility which, on occasion, seem so difficult to bear. I have heard those challenges termed impossible. -Russell M. Nelson

When Klopp speaks about his football being heavy metal, I understand completely. It is so aggressive. For the fans, it is really good. -Pep Guardiola

I loathe and detest heavy metal. -Butch Trucks

Try not to eat after 7 P.M. Try to stay away from heavy food in the night, like hamburgers and chicken nuggets. Eat that stuff in the morning or early afternoon. -Irina Shayk

I generally fall sick if I eat very heavy food. -Nargis Fakhri

There's this idea that because I'm a heavyweight, I'm not supposed to be in condition, that I should take advantage of the fact that I can eat. But I train and eat well, and it shows when I step on the scales. -Anthony Joshua

We do not need a heavy theoretical thumb on the scales. What's important is how the traditional sources of law and legal interpretation – text, structure, history, canons of interpretation, precedent, and other well-established tools of the judicial craft – are prioritized, weighted, and applied. -Diane S. Sykes

When I went to Gladbach from Basel in 2012, I put a lot of pressure on myself at first, and it was too heavy. I will not put any pressure on myself at Arsenal, even though the transfer fee was high. -Granit Xhaka

I believe race is too heavy a burden to carry into the 21st century. It's time to lay it down. We all came here in different ships, but now we're all in the same boat. -John Lewis

We are one people with one family. We all live in the same house… and through books, through information, we must find a way to say to people that we must lay down the burden of hate. For hate is too heavy a burden to bear. -John Lewis

I used to say, 'Hey, man, what kind of a stupid question is that?' to a newspaperman asking me heavy things right after a race when I'm still in an emotional state. Now I at least try to answer. -Steve Prefontaine

The Great Khali always serves up a good beatdown if you can't get out from under that heavy hand. -Jeff Hardy

The British scene in boxing, not just the heavyweight division, is popping. -Deontay Wilder

I don't have any doubt in my mind: I could knock out any man in the heavyweight division. -Deontay Wilder

There's no other heavyweight in the division like me, especially when it comes into the athletic department. I'm the most athletic heavyweight in the division. -Deontay Wilder

I'm one of the baddest, hardest-hitting heavyweights in the business. Right here from Alabama, baby. -Deontay Wilder

It don't matter if I got a broke hand, got a torn muscle: I'm going to fight like heavyweight champions do. -Deontay Wilder

I will be that guy to change this sport, especially in the heavyweight division. A lot of people have lost interest. I'm the right man for the job… I want to make it bigger and better than it ever have been before. -Deontay Wilder

When they throw punches, the breathing, the sparring. The heavy bags being hit. All of that – it was a heavenly sound to me. -Deontay Wilder

Once I knock Szpilka out, I want all the Polish fans to come on the 'Bronze Bomber' train as I bring the heavyweight division back to the top. -Deontay Wilder

I'm the guy who has everything it takes to be heavyweight champion of the world. It's not just about being great inside the ring: it's about being able to do great things outside of the ring. Not everyone has that. I love to be out there with the people. -Deontay Wilder

I wanted to show the world what Deontay Wilder is all about. I'm a heavyweight, and I'm exciting. -Deontay Wilder

I think everyone has knockout power. I mean, it's the heavyweight division. -Stipe Miocic

Fabio Maldonado jumped up to heavyweight for our fight, and while he wasn't ranked, he is a super-tough dude and had never been knocked out before. -Stipe Miocic

Listen, anyone in the heavyweight division in the top ten, there is no easy fight. I don't care what you say. -Stipe Miocic

It's the heavyweight division, man: there's a bunch of big guys, so anything can happen when they hit you. But I have plans, and feel I get better every fight. -Stipe Miocic

I've always fought as a heavyweight, and I didn't see any reason to fight at a lighter weight. -Fedor Emelianenko

I want to be the light heavyweight champion of the world. -Andre Ward

Dan Henderson, even when you're close and he hits you from very, very close, you can feel how heavy his hands are. His hands are pretty powerful. -Daniel Cormier

I lift pretty heavy for my body weight, and I don't do any of that girly stuff like cardio or any light weights. I go really heavy, and that intimidates some guys. I enjoy that. -AJ Lee

Only recently have I been introduced to the gym and heavy weightlifting and things like that. Before that, when I grew up, I just did a lot of gymnastics and dance. I had more of an athletic background, but nothing where I was in the gym or using any kind of weights. -Aaron Taylor-Johnson

There are not many heavyweight fighters to come by, so having so many sparring partners is a big luxury a lot of other fighters don't have. -Alistair Overeem

Big screens helped propel Samsung to top-tier prominence and helped iPhone sales explode a few years later. But for many, including myself, the biggest-screen models just weren't practical, because their overall size made them too large, too bulky, and too heavy. -Walt Mossberg

I don't want my work to be heavy. The challenge is to make it interesting and engaging, keeping in mind the need for method acting. This is what I have learnt from Bharat Muni's 'Natya Shastra' and from the Russian theatre legend Stanislavsky. -Nawazuddin Siddiqui

'Freaky Ali' is not a heavy film. It's a simple but inspiring film. It will inspire those who want to go from zero to hundred. People who have made an effort to achieve success from nothing will be able to connect to the character. -Nawazuddin Siddiqui

There's a lot of comedy in 'The Guest,' so it was a bit more fun in a sense – it wasn't so heavy like 'It Follows.' -Maika Monroe

All of my films have been very dialogue-heavy, and that's great. It always makes it more of a challenge to market in other countries. -Edgar Wright

Old-school Dire Straits songs are on heavy rotation: 'So Far Away,' 'Romeo and Juliet' and of course 'Sultans of Swing.' -Nazanin Boniadi

History's lesson, of course, is that attempts to suppress free expression have merely confirmed the caricaturists' original critique of heavy-handed and objectionable actions of overreaching governments. -Nazanin Boniadi

Like most conservatives, my path was a bit meandering. I grew up around people who mostly held conservative or libertarian views. The liberals I knew were fairly quiet about it, or at least I don't remember it being very heavy-handed. -Dana Perino

I've always loved the use of the word 'thick' when it comes to heavy because it's always a positive thing. -Paula Pell

It's interesting because I think class is a heavy, heavy part of 'Moonlight,' and I think, in a certain way, through the sum of all these parts, it's become a commentary on the black experience in America. -Barry Jenkins

I'm an old spirit, and my voice tends to be kind of heavy and loud. I've been referenced as 'a young Aretha.' -La'Porsha Renae

Let not those who say that the path of obedience is a dangerous one claim to believe in the living and true God. They deny his omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotence. It is his will that the bands of wickedness should be loosed, the heavy burdens of tyranny undone, the oppressed set free. -William Lloyd Garrison

I loved doing 'The Family' with Eunice and Mama. They were very interesting because there were no jokes written into those sketches. It was all character-driven. And sometimes it got a little heavy. -Carol Burnett

Thor is magical, yes, but it is the magic of reality. His hammer was crafted 'in the heart of a dying star,' but so were you! Most of the atoms that make you up are in fact the innards of a ball of gas in space that got so heavy that it exploded. Stars died so that you could live, as physicist Lawrence Krauss would say. -Kyle Hill

The burdens of generations of poverty and powerlessness lie heavy in the fields of America. If we fail, there are those who will see violence as the shortcut to change. -Cesar Chavez

I could never understand, when I watch romantic comedies, the notion that for some reason, unattractive or heavy people don't fall in love. If they do, it's in some odd, kooky, roundabout way – and it's not. It's exactly the same. -James Corden

I am not a great fan of serious, heavy writing. I prefer simple, short sentences, light on prose. -Ravi Subramanian

When I first started, it was so male-heavy, so male-dominated, that on the 18th floor of the criminal courts building, which was where I worked, there were three men's bathrooms and only one women's bathroom. -Marcia Clark

I was always into classical music and opera because I played the piano as I went through school and was very interested in Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals and stuff like that. That changed into heavy metal at around the age of 14 or 13, and I dropped the piano and started to play the guitar. -Kristian Nairn

I grew up with the British-Chicago crossover of house music with a lot of pianos and very heavy bass lines, but what I love about house is you can mix it up a bit. -Kristian Nairn

I was always very into heavy metal, and heavy metal is full of emotion and extremes, and I think that's the same in dance music. -Kristian Nairn

I would really love to collaborate with Gwen Stefani and M.I.A.; artists that kind of make sense with me vocally. And in terms of style, I'm a very visual artist. I really love Pharell. I love people that really care about drums, and I like beat-heavy. -Kat Graham

Endurance training is so mental. You just do it. You just can, and you just will, and you just run that far because, you know, I get tired at the first mile. I feel heavy and all of those things, but now I have developed, it's hard to explain… It's a very satisfying place to get into. -Paul Sparks

In Russia, we eat a lot of heavy food like potatoes and lots of meat. I can't eat one apple or a salad a day. You wouldn't want to come talk to me if I don't eat. I have to eat, or I am in a really bad mood. -Irina Shayk

Spielberg may have intended 'Schindler's List' as the opposite of entertainment, but the film grossed $321 million and engaged audiences as only entertainment can, coaxing them to cry and shudder, leaving their hearts more heavy than broken. -Stephen J. Dubner

I tend to think of Pluto and its moons as presents sitting under a Christmas tree. They're wrapped, and from Earth all we can do is look at the boxes to see whether they're light or heavy, to see if something maybe jiggles a bit inside. We're seeing intriguing things, but we really don't know what's in there. -Alan Stern

Not a lot of people or pros in this game know how to train correctly. That's why they don't have a long career. Their body gets banged up. They get into a rhythm of heavy sparring and heavy work, but through that, they're limiting movement. -Conor McGregor

I'm heavy into 'Max Payne 3'. That's a good one. I like any of the fighting games and all of the 'Tekken' and 'Street Fighter' series. -Ne-Yo

One of the most interesting things that I'm seeing of the Trump picks is such a heavy business and financial focus. I can't help but feel like this is going to throw a lot of policy weight and details back to Congress, because these are not people who have a lot of experience drafting legislation. -Austan Goolsbee

It is with a heavy heart that I learn of Joe Manganiello, a.k.a. my wolfy Twitter boo, is seeing one Ms. Sofia Vergara. -Retta

A lot of guys are starting to get away from trying to jerk these heavy weights and throw all these heavy weights around. -Jake Arrieta

When I do train heavy, it's typically one to two days a week, but the training I do just about on a daily basis is Pilates-based. -Jake Arrieta

I think the best thing I've written is a story called 'The Boxer and the Blonde.' It's a piece about Billy Conn, the white would-be heavyweight champion of the world, who lived in Pittsburgh. -Frank Deford

It costs a lot of money to deliver newsprint. It's so much easier to do it through the air, Internet, radio, television. The second easiest thing is to do it through the mail. But when you have to take something heavy and put it on someone's doorstep, that costs a lot of money. -Frank Deford

I can understand how people who don't really follow baseball can look at 'dead arm' and think the absolute worst. Basically, a dead arm is when your arm kind of feels a little heavy, kind of feels weak, and basically, it's just muscular fatigue. -Matt Harvey

A person on dialysis undergoes very heavy and irritating treatment, and in time, it seems more than you can bear. -James A. Michener

Comedy is harder, because if there's no laughs, it's pretty bad. But drama, if there's no reaction, you can say, 'Well, it's not their cup of tea. Maybe it's too heavy for the audience.' -Fred Willard

I stay away from heavy-handed stuff, the good guy and the bad guy. It just doesn't interest me; all it does is create more fences between people, I think. -Sam Shepard

I was really lucky to have been raised in this really powerful matriarchy where my dad was around, but I was with my mom and my grandma most of the time. They were heavy influences on me. My mother has a career in technology; my grandma sold real estate. -Katherine Ryan

I think the more experience I have working on films, the more I can shed that character rather than carrying around that heavy weight. -Haley Bennett

I was doing theatre when somebody noticed me and referred me to Raju Hirani. And Raju saw me on camera, and there, I was a heavy guy with long hair. But I got selected for the role of Joy in '3 Idiots.' -Ali Fazal

Boot camp was the first time I got a heavy dose of discipline. It was the best thing that ever happened to me. -Nelsan Ellis

I was doing a tour of the 'Batman' live stage production, and I challenged the cast to join me to run. One time, we were running in Switzerland just before Christmas, and it was heavy snow. Another time, we were running down the Seine in Paris on Christmas Day, and we all had Santa hats on. -Sam Heughan

When I was a kid, I wanted to fight Joe Louis. But I think if I had seen Mike Tyson at that time, I would have said, 'Nah, I don't want to fight him.' He's deadly. He could have been one of the great heavyweight champions. But he goofed. -Jake LaMotta

We always think about illegal stuff moving through the border south to north, but people forget that most guns – and we're not talking small guns, we're talking heavy weapons – they get to the cartels and create literally small armies out of the cartels. -Luis Videgaray Caso

We live in such an image-heavy world that not seeing yourself in that landscape can really make it tough to feel human, to feel like you are part of the world. -Petra Collins

During the '70s, Trump and his father hired Cohn as their lawyer to defend the family against a housing discrimination suit. -Franklin Foer

Men have to be freed from the tortures of heavy clothing that covers everything but the face and hands. -Elsa Schiaparelli

My father died from a heart attack. He was the sort of person who wouldn't complain. The symptoms are not heavy – a bit of chest pain, arm strain, or indigestion. People ignore those symptoms because they think it's trivial. Don't feel afraid to come forward. -Ray Fearon

I don't think German films have to be heavy or intellectual the way they sometimes used to be. -Til Schweiger

The heavy hand of government and its rules are causing family businesses to shutter their doors. -Cathy McMorris Rodgers

The days of the heavyweight champion as civil rights leader are long gone. You think you'd see Ali rolling around on the floor of an ESPN Zone? I don't think so. -Rich Eisen

On our first album, 'Sounding the Seventh Trumpet,' we were listening to more obscure heavy metal bands and hardcore bands. -Zacky Vengeance

'Waking the Fallen' truly encompasses everything that Avenged Sevenfold was at that time. It was us being fearless, us showing our roots in heavy metal, punk, rock n' roll, and not being afraid to try everything under the sun when it comes to writing music. -Zacky Vengeance

I'd like to think that we will have had something to do with a shift back to heavy rock. That's what we've wanted all along, and we knew there'd be fearless steps to take to achieve that. -Zacky Vengeance

Kerrang asked us to do a heavy metal tribute to one of our favorite heavy metal bands. We had already been jamming out on 'Walk,' so we're like, 'OK. We'll record it for you guys.' -Johnny Christ

Every riff had to be perfect and heavy, collectively what we wanted it to be. If there was one person in the room who went, 'Heh, I don't think it is there yet, guys,' we'd scrap the whole song. I think that took a little bit of songwriting maturity for us. -Johnny Christ

I'm extremely delighted to host the special show 'Dussehra – Jeet Sachchai Kee', which will celebrate the spirit of good over evil. The show will be filled with a heavy dose of entertainment as renowned celebrities from across popular television shows will be joining in the celebrations and saluting the spirit of righteousness. -Rithvik Dhanjani

A 12-hour shift is physically exhausting. You give multiple shots, wearing heavy jewellry and make-up – and end up with dark circles, acne, and skin problems. -Nia Sharma

Every time we do a new record, we do the best we can. For us, every record is stepping into the ring with another heavyweight champion. -David Bryan

I think the way comedy is represented on screen is it's either all fart jokes – and it's just laughter for the sake of laughter – or it's one of those things where it's just kind of very preachy, very heavy-handed. -Hasan Minhaj

I go online, and I love watching heavy metal bands and guitar players play heavy metal versions of the 'Zelda' theme, and people do all the 'Zelda' music, which is one of my favorite soundtracks. -M. Shadows

The misunderstanding out there is that we are a 'hard rock' band or a 'heavy metal' band. We've only ever been a rock n' roll band. -Angus Young

Every time there is a terrorist incident involving evil fanatics who abuse the name of Islam, ordinary, law-abiding Muslims pay a heavy price. -Sadiq Khan

There is a heavy Mexican Catholic streak in my movies, and a huge Mexican sense of melodrama. Everything is overwrought, and there's a sense of acceptance of the fantastic in my films, which is innately Mexican. So when people ask, 'How can you define the Mexican-ness of your films?' I go, 'How can I not?' It's all I am. -Guillermo del Toro

The funniest memory that I can recall about my school days has to be one incident that involved unfinished homework for numerous days. I didn't do any of my homework for days and days at a stretch, and kept stalling my teacher that I was extremely unwell and was under heavy medication. -Karan Patel

In daily life, I'm not a heavy user anyway, but I'm extra careful online because of the kids who look up to me. That's the fun part of being an actor – that kids like you – because they are very pure and transparent in their likes and dislikes. There's no filter like the ones on Instagram. -Varun Dhawan

The object of rewards is to encourage; that of punishments, to prevent. If rewards are high, then what the ruler wants will be quickly effected; if punishments are heavy, what he does not want will be swiftly prevented. -Han Fei

I think there's a difference between making a feel-good movie like 'Think Like a Man' and a feel-good show like 'Common Law.' It's not too heavy, it's not too serious. You just walk away with a smile on your face. I think that makes people somewhat more endearing to you. -Michael Ealy

I remember when MTV first put 'Linger' in heavy rotation, every time I walked into a diner or a hotel lobby, it was like, 'Jesus, man, here I am again.' -Dolores O'Riordan

In practical terms, Israel has become the eyes and ears of the United States in the Middle East. This arrangement has freed the United States from a heavy intelligence-gathering burden. But it has also forced the Americans to depend upon the Israelis. -Ronen Bergman

I don't like the Sunday newspapers – I read them because I have to. 'Sunday Times,' 'Telegraph,' 'Independent' on Sunday – I find them heavy and too much! I prefer 'The Economist.' -Richard Quest

I seem to get cast as one of two extremes. Either I play the butch heavy or totally nice guys. -Tim Pigott-Smith

I always dreamt of being in 'Kerrang.' That was my ambition. I read that religiously when I was into heavy metal. Then the jazz magazines took over. -Julian Barratt

I remember I did the movie 'Eulogy,' and there was a dramatic moment in it. It was pretty heavy, and I went for it. It was… I didn't feel that comfortable doing it. -Ray Romano

I'd write songs like 'One Big Holiday,' and we'd play it and say, 'It's too heavy for 'At Dawn.' Let's save it for the next one.' We had more time for that, but when you mix a song, the general rule of thumb for us is a song a day or usually a day and a half. -Jim James

I feel like I've paid a really heavy cost, a really heavy physical health cost, for the years of touring and how physical I've been onstage. -Jim James

Threats of trade protectionism, plus unilateral actions on the exchange-rate front, such as the heavy interventions of China, Japan, and Switzerland in the currency markets – not to mention the retaliatory tariffs recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives – endanger growth prospects and could further depress financial market confidence. -Charles Dallara

The Greek people deserve an economy that is not burdened forever by a heavy bureaucracy and a bloated public sector. -Charles Dallara

When I was a kid in New York, long before saturation sports coverage, the world heavyweight championship was, with the baseball World Series, the great national event. -William Klein

Americans, like many citizens of rich countries, take for granted the legal and regulatory system, the public schools, health care and social security for the elderly, roads, defense and diplomacy, and heavy investments by the state in research, particularly in medicine. -Angus Deaton

In high school, I decided that all of my female friends were stupid and traded them for guy friends. I loved horror movies and heavy metal and used these interests to become a 'guys' girl.' -Emily V. Gordon

Being the heavy favorite is not always a good thing because of the amount of pressure on an athlete. -Mirai Nagasu

When you put on foundation with a brush, it's a heavy finish – but if you use a brush and then blend, it looks more like a moisturizer and much prettier. Then add concealer – applied with a fine brush – to the problem areas afterward. -Pat McGrath

The recession of the late 1980s was a very visible humiliation. Cities across Britain had become the victims of botched battlefield surgery – surgery that involved the ripping up of factories, the flattening of buildings, and the razing of the Victorian heritage of heavy labour. -Simon Beaufoy

Whenever I write, I write very dialogue-heavy things because I love to force my characters to interact with one another. -Lauren Ashley Carter

We must defend democracy using its own mechanisms, through explaining and exemplifying its merits rather than through the heavy-handed and arbitrary silencing of its critics. This is how we will build a sustainable alternative to the contorted worldview of extremists. -Deeyah Khan

I love writing villains because I was the big sister of five girls, so I had heavy responsibility growing up. I had to be 'the good girl.' -Sandra Brown

I personally would rather layer up than put on a big, heavy coat. -Michael Bastian

For me, the costume is very important. More the feel of it than the look of it. I take it more from the inside. So if I wear something that's heavy, it will affect my character. Is it very tight, and do I feel almost imprisoned, or is it very comfortable? It's the feeling of the costume that tells me where to go with the character. -Vicky Krieps

I like to do heavy lifting, so it's a great thing to have meals that have a lot of protein to maintain that. -Jessie James Decker

Physically, women have some challenges in the kitchen, like lifting heavy pots on and off the stove. You learn to adapt; you learn to find a way. But the biggest challenge for women in this industry is how to balance a family with such a demanding career. -Lidia Bastianich

Hurricane Irene's advance coverage was heavy on worst-case scenarios. Thank goodness they didn't pan out. -Steve Rushin

Sometimes my past is extraordinarily heavy. That's when I scream and cry until I feel like I can breathe again. -Stacey Dash

My father's schooling during the 1930s was heavy with memorization; eight decades later, he is reaping the benefits. -Hope Jahren

Everyone's got something that they've held onto from their childhood or from a past relationship, someone who's told you what you are, and it's leaving all that behind and living a happy life and realizing that a lot of that is inside you – really uncovering that. The story – those themes – are heavy themes that everyone can connect to. -Joshua Henry

The heavyweight championship of the world was the most coveted title in sports. Everyone knew who the heavyweight champion was. And not only when it was Muhammad Ali or Rocky Marciano: they knew when it was Ingemar Johansson. -Thomas Hauser

Even when the heavyweight champion was a fighter of limited ability, he was still the heavyweight champion of the world. -Thomas Hauser

Marciano was an idol in a simpler era, when professional athletes were heroes and sportswriters were complicit in building legends rather than exposing them. To the public, all that really mattered was that Rocky had 49 wins in 49 fights and retired in 1956 as the undefeated heavyweight champion of the world. -Thomas Hauser

There are hundreds of young fighters whose handlers believe them to be a future world champion or the next great heavyweight or another Sugar Ray Robinson. The young men who inspire these beliefs are known as 'prospects.' -Thomas Hauser

David Tua was an elite and world class heavyweight, I believe David Tua would have knocked Joseph Parker out in a handful of rounds. -Thomas Hauser

The Fox News makeup treatment is unlike any other in journalism. It involves false lashes, layers and layers of foundation, and heavy applications of come-hither lip gloss. -Amy Chozick

I was a big Pretty Purdie fan. I have heavy rhythm and blues influences, and that is what I bring to the table with Aerosmith. -Joey Kramer

You cannot make a giant space company in your dorm room. Not today. And the reason is that the heavy lifting infrastructure isn't in place. -Jeff Bezos

A lot of people have this misconception that Indian food means heavy curries and complicated procedures. -Maneet Chauhan

The military has a way of ruining all the best recreational activities – scuba, sky diving, camping, hiking – all made much more miserable with a heavy rucksack on your back under arduous conditions. -Todd Wilcox

Gravity always sucks. It really, really does. It's a big challenge just re-adapting to feeling heavy again, you know? Even my arm feels heavy. My legs feel heavy. -Peggy Whitson

I'm a big runner, and I like to lift heavy. I'm not one for those little two-pound dumbbells – my goal is to be super-muscular in my 40s. -Barbie Ferreira

I grew up around a whole bunch of girls, and one thing I realized is what they had on their plate was very different than what I had on mine. The things girls are made to be responsible for is a heavy burden – take care of your younger siblings, do good in school, have some extracurriculars. The pressure is intense. -Jason Reynolds

Neglecting clean energy sources such as solar, wind, and especially nuclear, can result in blackouts, increased power bills, and will take a heavy toll on our efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. -Christine Todd Whitman

I always have a problem playing text-heavy games. I'm a slow reader. I don't speak English well. As a kid in China, trying to play these games, I just wanted the text to go away. -Jenova Chen

I'm doing modeling to stay alive. I don't enjoy my work. I don't find it creative. You don't need brains, and there are no heavy qualifications. All it takes is not to be shy and to dare to make a fool of yourself. But I shouldn't complain, because I am privileged enough to be overpaid. -Paulina Porizkova

Watching something is a personal experience, and I think watching something that is dealing with a heavy subject matter, it's a personal thing. -Wyatt Cenac

The thing that I'm known for – at least, depending on what Subreddit you go to – is being a comedian. And so, even when talking about heavy things, I still want to try to use humor to walk us in the door. -Wyatt Cenac

There are certain things that you can blast through a stereo. You can blast hip-hop. You can blast heavy metal. You can't blast 'All Things Considered.' -Wyatt Cenac

I love fighting big guys because I'm fast. I'm not a big, light heavyweight. I can move. I can get inside on them. I'm inside, I'm wrestling with them, and they're just wrestling, but all the time, I'm chopping; I'm slapping. -Bernard Hopkins

I think people will always be interested in crimes of passion. And I don't think you can do a genre-heavy show and not be influenced by successful, beautiful stories that have gone before. -Kristin Lehman

Nina Simone is a musical genius and a rich and precious treasure who paid a heavy price for her artistic freedom. -Dianne Reeves

What is responsible for the phenomenal development of the Internet? Well, it certainly wasn't heavy-handed government regulation. -Ajit Pai

I've always felt that acting is acting, at the end of the day, so whether you're doing comedy or heavy drama or anything else in between, you always have to bring a semblance of honesty to it. It's all make believe. -Benjamin Bratt

The 'Manipulator' record was really fun to do. It was far less heavy and draining, in an emotional way. It was just like making a rock record. It was just really fun. -Ty Segall

You have some great films every year, but for the most part, no one is making films with heavy messages or themes. People are afraid of doing that. -Tye Sheridan

The first 600 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, before you get into the Sierra Nevada mountain range, is heavy on desert. One of the things I carry with me in the desert is an umbrella. People think that's insane. It has a shiny top to it, so it looks totally ridiculous, but the difference can be 20 degrees. -Jay Duplass

I was a gymnast for 13 years, so I was heavy into sports. -SZA

Anderson Silva is a tough guy, man. He's dangerous. He's got heavy hands, and he's not afraid to throw them. He's a dangerous opponent for anyone. -Chuck Liddell

History is a heavy thing everywhere. -Tracy K. Smith

You have to respect people for what they do. Just because you don't like it, it's like, I don't like heavy metal too much, but I can still respect it. -Logic

It's a very empowering kind of music, heavy metal is. -Rob Halford

The great thing about Priest, in all the years that we've been making heavy metal music, is that we've always kind of carried this metal flag, if you will – this beacon of hope that, no matter what you may be going through in life, there's always a sense of overcoming difficulties, a sense of winning, a sense of coming out on top. -Rob Halford

There are gay and lesbian people in all walks of life, in all different types of professions. I just happen to be a gay man who sings in a heavy metal band. -Rob Halford

I kind of blew the doors off the myth that all heavy metalheads are Neanderthal and very limited in their ability to take on subject matter of any human depth. -Rob Halford

When we talk about 'Firepower,' we're talking about the fire and power of heavy metal to prevail and endure difficulties. 'Children of the Sun,' is, to some extent, about climate change and the ecosystem… We want to deliver a message to the people without being too much of a teacher. -Rob Halford

I love heavy-metal music more than anything in the world, but I'm equally drawn to Michael Buble or Michael Feinstein. -Rob Halford

We're a rock n' roll band. We play heavy metal music. And we want to give you a great time. That's basically how it all boils down. -Rob Halford

To me, a WrestleMania Sunday is 'I serve at the behest and at the pleasure of my beast.' I'm there to lighten the mood. I'm there to keep the mood light and not make it too heavy, and to keep the pressure off Brock Lesnar. -Paul Heyman

We always try to go back to character: What do they want? What are they doing? What's in motion that they're dealing with? When things get particularly heavy, we will take a step back and look at who has some room to have some things lighter, funnier, or sweeter happen. -Peter Paige

I know, being a band that's mostly gay and has women in it, I just think that there are the male icon bands: they are always – and they deserve it – but they are always touted as, 'These guys are heavy-duty.' I think bands, because we have a sense of humor, we are not always taken as seriously. -Kate Pierson

I work at a non-profit called ALS Worldwide, where we work with ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease) patients and families. It is often heavy work, but I'm grateful to be able to contribute to the ALS community. I'm constantly learning about science and medicine, and I have the honor of corresponding with patients throughout the world. -Chloe Benjamin

What makes 'The Marriage of Souls' such a wonderful book is Collins's intricate reconstruction of the late eighteenth-century world. Simplicity and philosophy are the hallmarks of eighteenth-century art and architecture. The classically pure lines look deceptively simple and unburdened by heavy symbolism or imagery. -Amanda Foreman

We now know that stars which are abundant in heavy metals are five times more likely to harbor orbiting planets than are stars deficient in metals. -Debra Fischer

55 Cancri is extraordinarily rich in heavy elements and extraordinarily efficient at making planets – much more so than our sun – and those elements are the very ones you need to make planets that aren't just gas giants. -Debra Fischer

I buy the UFC pay-per-views that are on OnDemand, DirectTV, and DISH. As far as quality, come on. These are the best heavyweights in the world. I think everybody knows that. -Scott Coker

We're not too top heavy with executives. I don't have to check with New York or L.A. My crew walks in, we talk about something, and either we do it or we don't. There's not a long, drawn out process. -Scott Borchetta

You could think of the galaxy as a sort of stove with lots of pots on it, and the pots are the interstellar medium, like a chicken broth getting stronger with every reduction. Every time a supernova goes off and sends its heavy elements out into the interstellar medium, we cook up a stew that's better and better for solar systems and life. -Sandra Faber

I had done some small-sketch stuff in college, and at that time, Tina Fey was becoming a heavy influence on my life and my world. I decided I wanted to do what she was doing. -Grace Helbig

Songs can click together really quickly, and other times, they're really laborious and heavy-lifting. -James Murphy

If you put heavy, regular classic guitar strings on a baritone ukulele, it gets pretty low. It has a really nice, low, warm feel to it. -Lou Barlow

I remember being inspired by this band Godflesh, actually. They were a really heavy metal band, really nihilistic. -Lou Barlow

The Florida sound would probably be best defined as heavy bass with high energy dance records. There's a strong Caribbean heritage in Florida which features a lot of uptempo music, and the music accents the sexy, body-oriented sound. -Flo Rida

I did not know that if a member of a family serves, the whole family serves. I did not know that the spouses of our service members carry such a heavy load. -Mary Gauthier

To be someplace for ten years or to work anywhere for ten years is a tough deal. But to work in the WWE for that long, knowing how their dressing room is run with this top heavy, condescending 'do this and nothing else' attitude, it gets tiresome. -Shane Douglas

If you don't take care of the people doing the heavy lifting, they will burn your castle down. -John Schnatter

I grew up in a typical Ashkenazi household. My bubbe actually lived with us. She'd make us the traditional colorless, beige, heavy foods: chicken soup, kreplach, gefilte fish, tzimmes. -Harley Pasternak

One of the big things, especially if you're eating out frequently, is either splitting an entree with someone or ordering a protein-heavy appetizer for an entree, like a salmon or steak tartar. If I'm dying for a burger, I'll get the burger but have it with salad instead of fries and a glass of red wine instead of a beer. -Mary Helen Bowers

Slow-twitch muscle fibers are mostly used for long endurance exercises like aerobics, swimming, and distance running. Fast-twitch muscle fibers are generally more powerful and are activated during maximum exertion exercises like heavy weightlifting and intensive, short bursts of sprints. -David Kirsch

Women often use weights that are too heavy. I like to stay in the 3- to 15-pound range. If you're more fitness-experienced, use weights in the 8- to 10-pound range. If you're a beginner, start in the 3-pound range. -David Kirsch

Most people are like, 'Oh, you shouldn't eat steak. It's so heavy.' But I love steak the day before a meet. Or the day of. I try to get that red meat in, some extra energy. -Tori Bowie

I played on a 10'x10' chessboard at a hotel in Miami. The pieces were heavy, and I got tired just making a move. Not cool with that. -Gza

Filmmaking is so heavy: there are so many people and trucks and teamsters and costume people and hair people and makeup people. I try to make it light and as simple as possible. It's great for actors. It puts the story up front. It's not about shots and dollies and lighting and sets. -Jean-Marc Vallee

We're basically a rock band – guitar, bass, drums and vocals. But we take it further than that. We can be rotten, dirty, and heavy as anyone, but at the same time, we've got a lot of melody. -Rick Nielsen

I usually try to go for meals that aren't heavy when I'm playing for a long time. I'll try to stay away from carbing up too hard – so I avoid pastas. -Ninja

When I created the Cruiserweight division in WCW, nobody called them cruiserweights in the industry at that point. That was a boxing term, not a wrestling term, but I did not want to call them junior heavyweights, light heavyweights, or anything that made them sound diminutive. I wanted it to sound special and cool. -Eric Bischoff

Irrespective of their party affiliation or wishes on the matter, those governing from 10 Downing Street now have to take on much of the aura and role of head of state. And this is bound to have heavy consequences for their family. -Linda Colley

That's what I'm tryin' to achieve. I want to be a heavyweight in this game, and I'm tryin' to get the big money. By the same token, the title 'Big Money Heavyweight' applies to everybody in the world. That's what everybody's tryin' to achieve. -Mannie Fresh

When my voice isn't doing what I want it to do, it's crushing in the most heavy way possible. -Walker Hayes

I grew up on listening to, like, Mantronix and BDP and EPMD and Kool G Rap and Ultramag and Public Enemy and Fat Boys and Run DMC and a lot of those early records, those Rubin-era records. Those were always snare- and stab-heavy records. -El-P

I just like heavy music in general – from heavy rock and heavy metal and heavy rap and heavy everything. I've always been attracted to it. -El-P

If anyone has the opportunity to connect the dots and look at the directors I've worked with, from TV to film, there are some heavy hitters, from Taylor Hackford to John Singleton. -Regina King

When you push and pull heavy things, your body thinks it's going to die, and so it's like, 'I better get bigger, in case we do that tomorrow.' -David Harbour

I love the story behind the Vasa Museum: in the 17th century, the Swedish king was trying to make a statement by building a huge ship that would sail around Europe carrying the Swedish flag and proving that we were a force to be reckoned with, and basically, the ship was top-heavy, and so it went 300 or so yards and sank. -Bill Skarsgard

When I'm lifting heavy, doing squats, and doing upper-body workouts, it's mostly about core and stability. But I'll still do deadlifts. I also do tire workouts with these big 600-pound tires, flipping them and stuff like that. -Aaron Judge

I used to think of Mexican food as a once-in-a-while type of thing because it can be so heavy, but I learned how to lighten it up easily and keep it just as flavorful. That's awesome, since it's the perfect festive dinner for hanging out with friends on a relaxed night. -Katie Lee

Devising the menu for an intimate meal can be a thorny task. You want to make something your guy will go crazy for, but that usually means big and heavy. And feeling overly full kind of kills the mood. -Katie Lee

Wal-Mart is like a physical version of YouTube. You can find anything you want on YouTube. It let me access millions of people online who maybe wouldn't have tried yoga. Wal-Mart carries a similar heavy weight in its ability to reach people. -Tara Stiles

The window in which it's acceptable to listen to Ella Fitzgerald's 1960 record 'Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas' is short, so I keep it in heavy rotation throughout the festive season. -Sally Rooney

I think the best mood for writing is a heavy feeling that's a little bit removed from you. Sometimes I feel very self-indulgent and bratty and ungrateful, and no good music comes out of that. But sometimes I can be really sad or have an excess of feeling yet somehow be able to see the big picture more. -Perfume Genius

I do heavy weight deadlift squats, shoulder presses, push-ups, and I can pull up my own body weight. And I do an ab workout just about every night. It's 200 reps of five different exercises four times right before bed: a plank with hip twists, side bridge dips, a walking mountain climber, bicycles and leg lift. -Shalita Grant

I still feel a heavy responsibility for the people of Missouri because of the respect they have for me but also the things they've done for me. -Kurt Warner

I listened to Korn and Limp Bizkit and that whole era of heavy music. -Machine Gun Kelly

Imogen Poots loves music to death and can literally name 300 bands that she listens to, that you've never heard. She's so heavy into the underground music scene. When she's speaking on music, she means it. -Machine Gun Kelly

My dad was a three-time world heavyweight champion, so I want to be a three-time world heavyweight champion. -Cody Rhodes

Is the opposite of light entertainment meant to be dark and heavy? -Denis Norden

Venom was a joke in the '80s, their heavy metal music sucked big time, and I really have no interest in them – not then, not now. -Varg Vikernes
