I like helping people. -Lori Greiner

The biggest change we have to tackle that's out there is that we're digging the hole deeper and deeper and spending is totally out of control.

In my family, we let our boys have a say in what veggie side they want for dinner that night. We list off a handful of options and get them excited about helping to plan the dinner menu. They're much more inclined to finish their plates when they've helped decide what goes on them. -Cat Cora

When I was 13, I entered the seminary in the hope of becoming a priest. But I often found myself helping the nuns in the kitchen and thus discovered my passion for cooking. I began to cultivate my skills and aspirations at the age of 15, when I embarked on my first apprenticeship. -Joel Robuchon

I call crony capitalism, where you take money from successful small businesses, spend it in Washington on favored industries, on favored individuals, picking winners and losers in the economy, that's not pro-growth economics.

The general idea of the rich helping the poor, I think, is important. -Bill Gates

Republican governors are leading the way in helping the private sector create new jobs, reforming government and getting our economy back on track. -Bob McDonnell

I love working for the people of Indiana. I love helping our citizens make the most of their lives, but I do not love Congress. -Evan Bayh

I work hard and I have a standard of excellence – and I expect everyone at the Interior Department to meet that same standard. I delegate a lot.

We certainly want those at the top to do well, but if you base your entire presidency and your entire economic platform on helping them do even better, you're missing what makes the economy tick. Because not everyone has been as fortunate as Mitt Romney, you cannot base your whole approach on a life experience as rarified as his. -Chuck Schumer

We believe that in times like these we should turn to each other, not on each other. We believe that government has a role to play, not in solving every problem in everybody's life but in helping people help themselves to the American dream. That's what Democrats believe. -Deval Patrick

Home Star is a common sense idea that would create jobs and provide a boost to local economies, while helping families afford their energy bills.

There are a lot of other people that really play a significant role in helping you become an Olympian. -Jackie Joyner-Kersee

I suppose, if helping a patient die is killing, I suppose I'm a killer. -Jack Kevorkian

I love helping out good people who are doing good things. -J. R. Martinez

One lesson I got from Gandhi, 'Be the change you want to see,' haunts me.

I love going to Africa and stuff. I love going anywhere, really, but I've been to Africa a bunch of times and it's just a beautiful place that needs help, obviously, but helping people that are really thankful is really easy to do. And the people out there always seem so thankful. -Kris Allen

I look upon The Animals, they were a great band initially, we left our mark, but thing was it was a band that couldn't live up to its name so I soldiered on. On one level, it was devastating for a while. On another level, maybe I should thank them for helping me make my own way in my own career. -Eric Burdon

You know the most important thing the Americans did for Iraq apart from liberating the country from Saddam was helping Iraq reduce its debt. The United States worked very hard to reduce 80 percent of Iraqi debt. -Ahmed Chalabi

I love inspiring people and helping them to reach their potential. -Richard Hatch

Those three years on 'Loving' were instrumental in helping me move through the next few years of work, where it was hit or miss.

You learn that you have to just keep plugging away and never take anything for granted. -Michael Weatherly

There's something to be said for giving and helping to change people's lives. -Steven A. Cohen

People have come to me for my opinion since 'October Baby.' But, hey, look, I'm an actor who is very fortunate to be in a movie that's making wonderful noise, and hopefully helping parents and children to be a little closer. Leave me alone. I'm not talking about politics. I'm just trying to have a conversation with my own kids. -John Schneider

I think there's nothing more amazing than helping people every day. -Naomie Harris

By visiting patients in their home, by helping them come to terms with their illness, I could heal when I could not cure. -Abraham Verghese

My writing flows out of my doctorhood. They are not separate things. They are one.

I'm thankful to God for having a family that's been there for me. He's been there from the time I was a child to even now with my family helping with my little boy.

My show is not just a cop hosting a talk show – the two are completely different. My show is about helping people stand up to the bad guy. -Steve Wilkos

Conservatives may worship Adam Smith's 'invisible hand,' but for Obama, the helping hand comes in large measure from the public, not the private sector. To call this 'socialism' is to do violence to the word and to the concept. To call it 'un-American' is a smear. -Jeff Greenfield

A lot of people saved IBM. Yes, I was the leader of that team, but I could never have done it without a group of IBMers helping me. -Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

By incentivizing Wall Street players to sniff out inefficient or corrupt companies and bet against them, short-selling acts as a sort of policing system; legal short-sellers have been instrumental in helping expose firms like Enron and WorldCom. -Matt Taibbi

You know, there's nothing damnable about being a strong woman. The world needs strong women. There are a lot of strong women you do not see who are guiding, helping, mothering strong men. They want to remain unseen. It's kind of nice to be able to play a strong woman who is seen. -Ginger Rogers

I don't think in terms of that bizarre tautology 'value for money' in my literary and journalistic work – and nor will I in my academic role. However, if I don't believe I'm helping my students towards a fuller and more empowering relationship with the world, then I'll resign. -Will Self

I am going to give the American people a huge helping of unbridled truth: that we can't continue to spend what we are spending, that we can't avoid entitlement reform because we are afraid of third rail politics. -Rick Perry

I love helping people; just being of service makes me happy! -Cory Hardrict

Never wear a red t-shirt to Target. I enjoy helping people, but not every two minutes. -Kevin Nealon

I was a TV producer at a noncommercial station, and we were producing some good documentaries – on Head Start, on poverty. But I was struck by the children, and the damage that poverty was doing to them. I didn't think filming them was helping much, so I wondered how we could use TV for them, to teach them. -Joan Ganz Cooney

One of the things that I realize is that if you look at big business, I mean, they – and what they fund and what they do, they don't really – they don't fund the small non-profit community-based organizations that really are out there on the front lines helping people. They fund the big philanthropies. They're safe. -Rick Santorum

I consider myself true, which, I know, some people look at as radical, but I enjoy the normalcies of life. I'm not out there trying to transform things, but somehow, by being easy to talk to, and easy to look at, and on a mainstream TV show, I think that I'm helping the public's opinions about transgendered people to change, slowly. -Candis Cayne

I graduated from Second City Los Angeles. It helped me tremendously, not only in my roles in films but in helping shape me into a writer as well. In improv, you will fail sometimes, so it teaches you to be brave and try anything. The worst that can happen is nobody laughs. -Carly Craig

By international standards, many of the U.K.'s policies for civil society are exemplary. However, there are concerns about constraints on civil liberties – particularly restrictions on free assembly and about the rising tide of everyday regulation has seriously impeded community activity – from organising street parties to helping children. -Geoff Mulgan

For most of human history, the main goal of states has been to conquer land and to achieve glory for their rulers, usually at others' expense. Then in recent decades it was all about GDP. It's only in very recent history that rulers have been willing to commit themselves to helping their citizens live happier lives. -Geoff Mulgan

I really love the Olympics: Daley Thompson's back-flip, Derek Redmond's father helping him finish the 400m after his hamstring snapped at the 1992 Games in Barcelona, Carl Lewis, Michael Johnson, Sir Steve Redgrave – childhood memories are flooded with these moments and idols. -Giles Duley

Attention is the fundamental instrument we use for learning, thinking, communicating, deciding, yet neither parents nor schools spend any time helping young people learn how to manage information streams and control the ways they deploy their attention. -Howard Rheingold

By helping a woman, you help a family. -Jacqueline Novogratz

I think we need to do some deep soul searching about what's important in our lives and renew our spirit and our spiritual thinking, whether it's through faith-based religion or just through loving nature or helping your fellow man. -Louie Schwartzberg

I'm interested in helping secure the PC – we need innovation here. It's not just hug your PC, hate the iPhone. In fact I don't even hate the iPhone; I think it's really cool. I just don't want it to be the center of the ecosystem along with the Web 2.0 apps. -Jonathan Zittrain

We only live once, and how would you want to be remembered? I have kids. I have, due to my job, a probably higher responsibility to do good things in my life. But also, since I was a kid, I love doing things out of context, helping friends, being different, being a special kind of man is important for me. -Gilles Marini

There are a lot of pros to doing a film, as far as it helping your film career, and it is completely different financially. But theatre is the only place where you get to actually be the character, and nobody is going to come around and change it later. -Jimmi Simpson

I believe in helping young people rock causes they care about because I was one of those young people… a long time ago. -Nancy Lublin

Whether it's by helping us search for health-related information, connecting us with doctors through online portals, or enabling us to store and retrieve our medical records online, the Internet is starting to show the promise it has to transform the way people interact with and improve their own health and wellness. -Dean Ornish

I'm in the role of helping these apes negotiate the human role. I'm just a temporary intermediary in what I think will be eventual communication between the two species. -Sue Savage-Rumbaugh

I would love to be remembered as a wonderfully dynamic and multitalented actress who left a legacy through her work and through her life of helping people and of being a positive force in the world. -Keshia Knight Pulliam

Obviously Tesla is about helping solve the consumption of energy in a sustainable manner, but you need the production of energy in a sustainable manner. -Elon Musk

There are some die-hard 'Chelsea Lately' fans, and that's where the majority of my fans come from. Chelsea is really helping make comedy audiences hipper and edgier. -Natasha Leggero

Social media for the majority of companies is not about helping customers or improving products. -Tucker Max

I believe in backing players and helping them out with their game. -Gautam Gambhir

The immediacy of the technology of the web allows us, as songwriters, to write something very sharp and quick. That has a lot to do with helping a songwriter be more reflective of reality, instead of being in an area where you have to process things. It's the difference between processing fish and catching it in a boat. -Chuck D

I'm not talking about Russia in my music. I've never been to Russia. I'm not talking about Africa, Switzerland, China. I'm talking about me being American and growing up in a crazy world and helping to reflect all different sides of life. -Nas

I definitely got my philanthropic genes from my mom and dad. They taught me from a very early age to always lend a helping hand to anyone in need, and I hope to raise my daughter to be a very kind and charitable person. -Rebecca Gayheart

In high school, I had a couple girlfriends who had very extreme eating disorders. Anorexia and bulimia. And in college as well. It's just heartbreaking. As someone going through it, it's heartbreaking. And as a friend who's helping a friend going through it, it's heartbreaking. It's a real, real disease. -Katie Lowes

I feel like this is the way I was meant to interact with acting. Which is as a director, and helping, working with actors to find their way. Facilitating their performances is so satisfying for me. -Lynn Shelton

If I can center down and strengthen the core of who I am, and the core of who I am is my relationship with God, then that helps me maintain peace deep down. If I can maintain a healthy spiritual core, I think that's enormous for helping the stress. -Anne Graham Lotz

My team and I have discovered, over decades of study, that mushroom mycelium is a rich resource of new antimicrobial compounds, which work in concert, helping protecting the mushrooms – and us – from microbial pathogens. -Paul Stamets

Mushrooms have many helpful nutrients, including beta glucans for immune enhancement, ergothioneines for antioxidative potentiation, nerve growth stimulators for helping brain function, and antimicrobial compounds for limiting viruses. -Paul Stamets

I met India Arie, who is one of my favorite artists of all time. It was really sweet; I was broken up with a month before, and she stayed up texting me all night and was helping me through it. Her text message looks like a song of hers. She's sort of become my fairy godmother. -Ariana Grande

You give to get. Whether it's helping someone or training a kid, I believe you will be rewarded in some way. -Micky Ward

Relationships are about helping motivate each other to be all that you can be. -David Archuleta

I want people to take the initiative to find veterans that need help, veterans that are suffering and in need of assistance reintegrating from combat back into society, into normal family lives and jobs. We need to take a real 'boots on the ground' approach to helping veterans in need. -Max Martini

On Christmas morning, before we could open our Christmas presents, we would go to this stranger's home and bring them presents. I remember helping clean the house up and putting up a tree. My father believed that you have a responsibility to look after everyone else. -George Clooney

The problem with feminism in the second wave was that we fought so much among ourselves, and I think we did so much damage to the movement… and I think the next wave, the third wave, is women mentoring younger women and women helping younger women to enter the political process and the writing world. -Erica Jong

I feel so lucky that I met the love of my life. You know somebody's in it to win it when they're changing your IV bag or you're having a seizure and they're holding you. And helping you to the bathroom. You know that they love you. -Kathleen Hanna

It is an entirely selfish decision to turn producer because I want my kind of cinema to last and flourish, and helping young filmmakers make those kind of films is the best way to do it. -Anurag Kashyap

My charity is in the business of helping firefighters in any way that we can. For instance, after 9/11 we were the second-fastest charity to raise and distribute money to the widows and surviving family members of the 343 firefighters who died that day. -Denis Leary

Our primary goal in the consumer health service companies I back is helping them create an uncompromisingly great consumer experience. -John Sculley

More than half of all the hip hop record sales are white people, and I think that might be a result of my record helping people to accept hip hop. -Vanilla Ice

As a doctor, an educator, an innovator and someone who has dedicated his professional career to making things work better and to helping people – I am ready to lead. -Donald Berwick

I don't think my approach to acting is all necessarily in service of the character. I think, selfishly, I've put it in service of myself, my perspective on the world and helping my life. -Jake Gyllenhaal

A lot of moms give their kids line reads. My mom wasn't put in that position because I always had an acting teacher helping with the feelings rather than how to say something. -Kirsten Dunst

Some of my colleagues seem more interested in using every procedural method possible to keep the Senate from doing anything than they are in creating jobs or helping Americans struggling in a difficult economy. -Al Franken

When I'm putting some communication out on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, I think that it's helping me, my brain, you know, because it's always somehow stimulated by people who are sending things to me. And it works both ways. It's great. My brain is very happy about it. -Yoko Ono

I make a playlist for every character I portray. Music plays a huge part in helping me understand a character. Every time I get a new role, I will take a chunk of time to just sit and listen to a bunch of songs and select the ones that make sense in my mind for that character. I can't even explain how much it helps me. -Richard Harmon

Games I do find interesting for what they say about us, about what we wish for, about the programming. But let it stop there: don't listen to this rubbish about them actually being good for you, helping with hand-eye co-ordination or whatever. They're games. They prepare you for nothing. -Douglas Coupland

Comics is all about making it believable and helping people to get completely lost in a fictional world. -Dave Gibbons

Population growth is straining the Earth's resources to the breaking point, and educating girls is the single most important factor in stabilizing that. That, plus helping women gain political and economic power and safeguarding their reproductive rights. -Al Gore

I've been giving back since I was a teen, handing out turkeys at Thanksgiving and handing out toys at toys drives for Christmas. It's very important to give back as a youth. It's as simple as helping an old lady across the street or giving up your seat on the bus for someone who is pregnant. -Queen Latifah

For me, my family and my faith have been what's really been my anchor, and grounding me, and helping me navigate through a lot of the things that really destroy marriages in Hollywood, and in your own personal integrity. -Kirk Cameron

I like helping children. I have a big thing with children. You can correspond with the child, send something to them as a gift. You know it's actually getting there and you are doing something to help. -Lisa Marie Presley

When I die, I'd like' Friends' to be listed behind 'helping people.' -Matthew Perry

I had parents who believed I could do anything – and I know how that made me feel. I think both my parents, having careers in the medical profession, feel they are helping people on a daily basis, and that was inculcated in me as a value. I had to struggle with giving up the idea of becoming a doctor myself. -Reese Witherspoon

I enjoy the collaboration. I always envied people in bands who got to have that interaction. I've done so many albums where I've been in the studio for 14 hours a day for six months just trying to come up with things on my own. It's a nice change helping other people with their music and not being all about what I'm trying to do myself. -Beck

Science and mindfulness complement each other in helping people to eat well and maintain their health and well-being. -Thich Nhat Hanh

The real power of the Buddha was that he had so much love. He saw people trapped in their notions of small separate self, feeling guilty or proud of that self, and he offered revolutionary teachings that resounded like a lion's roar, like a great rising tide, helping people to wake up and break free from the prison of ignorance. -Thich Nhat Hanh

As you get older, you have to force yourself to have new dreams. For instance, I've been flying for 37 years, but now teaching others to fly is interesting for me. Sometimes you have to find new angles on life to keep you interested, like sharing successes and inspiring and helping others. -John Travolta

My mother was devoted to helping people – with my father's money! – who had great voices but didn't have the financial means to study music. He and my mum gave away dozens of music scholarships, and my mum opened a school in town, introduced opera to children and created fantastic programmes. -Salma Hayek

I'm a conservative first, and I believe that, if we do a better job of helping Americans understand what we're trying to do, to showcase every place in the country that our ideas are working at the state level, that that will help those at the federal level who want to carry those policies. -Jim DeMint

I wanted to write about looking at the world, so it's more about helping people, or persuading people, to see what is around us; both the marvellous and the terrible. -John Berger

Success is attaining your dream while helping others to benefit from that dream materializing. -Sugar Ray Leonard

Google Apps for Education is a suite of applications intended to be helpful to higher level educational institutions, but in the long run, I think Google has a role to play in helping to assemble relevant content for classroom use. -Vint Cerf

God put us here to prepare this place for the next generation. That's our job. Raising children and helping the community, that's preparing for the next generation. -Dikembe Mutombo

As a graduate student at Oxford in 1963, I began writing about books in revolutionary France, helping to found the discipline of book history. I was in my academic corner writing about Enlightenment ideals when the Internet exploded the world of academic communication in the 1990s. -Robert Darnton

I was raised in restaurants. My parents opened their first restaurant, Buonavia, in Queens when I was just 3. This business has always been my way of life. As a kid, home was reserved only for sleeping. After school, you could find my sister and I helping out at the family restaurant. -Joe Bastianich

I thoroughly enjoy the work I do in helping motivate and empower young girls to celebrate and love their natural selves. -Dominique Dawes

Building a company isn't that different from climbing a big mountain. You need people helping you traverse treacherous paths and to lift you up when you fall. -Vivek Wadhwa

I really like Los Angeles – I had a good life out there. But the reason I choose to live in New York is because when I'm between engagements, as they say, something creative always comes up for me, like 'Julian Po,' or helping teach at NYU, or helping stage a show at Juilliard. -Malcolm Gets

I do hope to be an adult actor. But if it doesn't work out, I've been thinking about doing something in the medical therapy field, chiropractics or something like that. I've always been into the idea of helping people medically, but I can't stand blood or surgery. That freaks me out. So this would be a bloodless way to help people. -Nathan Kress

Death is so important that God visited death upon his own son, thereby helping us learn right from wrong well enough that we may escape death forever and live eternally in God's grace. -P. J. O'Rourke

Corporate corruption has ecological merits. It's helping to preserve that species known as Democrats – thought to be endangered as recently as the year 2000. -P. J. O'Rourke

The bottom line is, until we're helping people to stop smoking, screening for breast cancer, giving Pap smears, giving prenatal care to pregnant women, we should not go into publicly paying for the artificial heart, which will benefit at great cost only a few people. -Richard Lamm

I think it is incumbent on anyone who can to lift human dignity to the highest possible levels, maintaining one's own and helping to raise that of others. -Henry Rollins

I like collecting comics, I like buying comics, I like looking at comics, but I also read comics on digital readers, so any way people read comics is fine with me. Digital is just helping people who might not necessarily have access to comics help them; that's great. -Geoff Johns

When you're doing a job that benefits other people, it's easy to assume that they feel conscious of the fact that you're doing this work – that they should feel grateful, and that they should and do feel guilty about not helping you. -Gretchen Rubin

Banks hold deposits and savings entrusted to them by individuals, by businesses, by governments and by central banks. They put that money to work, helping people to buy homes, for example, or lending to businesses to invest in expansion. -Bob Diamond

I like to think that faith has been a part of my life since I was a lot younger. It's definitely a part of my athletic career. I always wear a cross on my goggles during contests when I'm doing something gnarly. It's a reminder that I've got someone else helping me out. -Nick Goepper

Personally, I don't want to do a lot of angel deals in a year. I get approached a lot. I'm becoming less and less polite, which doesn't seem to be helping. A lot of the things I get pitched on are from people who just want to make money. -Jim McKelvey

I always tend to write about outsiders. And what's been fun for me is, as I travel around and visit schools, is that other kids that feel the same way relate to some of my characters, and so I hope in some way that's helping them when they want to read about somebody that they can relate to. -Kimberly Willis Holt

I originally started GoPro with the sole purpose of helping surfers capture photos of themselves and their friends while they were surfing. I thought it was crazy that very few surfers had any photos or videos of themselves. -Nick Woodman

In the end, it's a good investment for America to be involved in helping people get democratic governance – not to take over their country – but to help people be free. And that is an investment that will pay off in the future. -Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

By boosting oversight and accountability, we can empower the VA in its core mission of helping the men and women who have served our country. -Ann Kirkpatrick

A heck of a lot more accountability comes from individuals or the church doing it than the government, that signs off on helping people at 5 o'clock, because it comes from the heart, not from a badge or a mandate. -Doug LaMalfa

I went to college and law school with the help of the GI Bill. That experience moved me so much, I dedicated the rest of my life to serving this great country and helping others succeed. -Charles B. Rangel

I love dressing up. I have people helping me with it. I am not going to take credit for that. I have a stylist, make-up and hair stylist. -Sonam Kapoor

I've been very engaged in Illinois and Chicago civic activities for a long time; mostly around building businesses and helping entrepreneurs grow companies, but also around education and education reform. -Bruce Rauner

In the summer of 1966, I went to Mississippi to be in the heart of the civil-rights movement, helping people who had been thrown off the farms or taken off the welfare roles for registering to vote. While working there, I met the civil-rights lawyer I later married – we became an interracial couple. -Alice Walker

Our God who created all of us is the God who calls all of us to care for one another. I think that's going to be one of the big, big challenges of the future, helping refocus on the needs of others. -Donald Wuerl

I've started the John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health. The big focus is helping people get the correct diagnoses. -Amy Yasbeck

Personally, I find visualisations great for helping me understand the world and for sifting the huge amounts of information that deluge me every day. -David McCandless

As an economist specializing in the global economy, international trade and debt, I have spent most of my career helping others make big decisions – prime ministers, presidents and chief executives – and so I'm all too aware of the risks and dangers of poor choices in the public as well as the private sphere. -Noreena Hertz

Talking to my mental coach definitely helps. I talk to her every week. Yeah, I mean, she's been helping me a lot, too. -Inbee Park

I think college prepared me at a really high level. High school, you can take some plays off on the defensive end. Not on purpose, but if your man gets tired, you can rest a little bit. But once you get to college, and especially in the NBA, you can't do that. Even if my man gives the ball up, I'm on help side, helping my team out. -Trey Burke

I went to Africa without the perspective of a balance between teaching people the truth, which has been my calling, and helping people who have physical problems, like AIDS and orphans and hunger. -Bruce Wilkinson

If your life gets off to a rough start, just know this is helping you develop depth of personality and depth of character. -John Bytheway

When I started the Imagination Library in my hometown, I never dreamed that one day we would be helping Scottish kids. -Dolly Parton

Before the 1970s, banks were banks. They did what banks were supposed to do in a state capitalist economy: they took unused funds from your bank account, for example, and transferred them to some potentially useful purpose like helping a family buy a home or send a kid to college. -Noam Chomsky

I've had broken bones and cuts and dashes and tears from movies, but when I was five, my mom put the biscuits up high so we wouldn't be helping ourselves. So, one day I asked to stand up on a chair to get a biscuit, and it fell, and the corner of the chair went right into the side of my eye, and it made a big hole in there. -Gerard Butler

Some people feel good about helping others, and they do so often. They do not realize that their good deeds have a second agenda. They want to be appreciated. -Gary Zukav

I spent nearly two decades as a social worker and an educator with kids. So, my whole life has been about helping middle-class families. So it's just kind of a hollow argument to say I'm not a family person. -Kyrsten Sinema

Dell will participate in tablets and all sorts of client devices. Our main business is helping our customers secure, protect their data and access it from any device they want to. -Michael Dell

China is a BRIC country. BRIC country means Brazil, Russia, India and China. This emerging economy really is helping the revival of the world economy. -Michael Anti

We all know that as we form thoughts, they form deep channels in our minds and in our brains. Chronic pain is an example. If you burn yourself, you pull your hand away. But if you're still in pain in six months' or six years' time, it's because these circuits are producing pain that's no longer helping you. -Christopher deCharms

The United Nations has a proud record of helping millions of people in mine-affected countries. -Ban Ki-moon

I believe that in this new world that we live in, we often have a responsibility, you know, to actually go beyond the thou shalt nots – that is, the not harming others – and say we can help others and we should be helping others. -Peter Singer

I haven't worked enough to worry about getting typecast, but I do as a film lover didn't want to be working with the bad guys. I didn't want to be making a movie I thought was contributing to a lower base of movies that I just didn't think were helping people, really. -Alden Ehrenreich

Biographers use historians more than historians use biographers, although there can be two-way traffic – e.g., the ever-growing production of biographies of women is helping to change the general picture of the past presented by historians. -Claire Tomalin

There's something very real about helping someone one-on-one. -Matt Mullenweg

I took an improv class in 2005 in Chicago at ComedySportz, which was short-form, more of a games-based improv. I remember it being real fun and helping with my stand-up. If I did an improv class, and then I did stand-up later, I felt looser on stage and more comfortable. -Hannibal Buress

As a young boy, I had strange dreams of affecting people and somehow being instrumental in changing the makeup of Africa and helping to improve life there. -Djimon Hounsou

I love the experience of getting to direct because I can have all of the fun of helping shape the show, but I don't have to actually do it, so I don't have to deal with the nerves. -Tom Lenk

In the age of activism that is clearly not going away, it would seem that some form of engagement from directors with shareholders – rather than directors simply taking their cues from management – would go a long way toward helping boards work on behalf of all shareholders rather just the most vocal. -Andrew Ross Sorkin

I've been in the habit of helping people. -Seamus Heaney

I see courage everywhere I go in Africa. Fearless human rights activists in Darfur. Women peace advocates in eastern Congo. Former child soldiers in Northern Uganda who now are helping other former child soldiers return to civilian life. -John Prendergast

Whether it's veterans' disability claims, infrastructure projects, dam safety, or helping our farmers, what I am focused on is being useful for folks in the Hudson Valley. -Sean Patrick Maloney

I've always thought about my legacy – more so, though, my impact off the field and how I'm helping my community and solidifying and strengthening the lives of others around me. And also, I just want to be a dominant football player, too. So it encompasses everything. -Larry Fitzgerald

I really enjoy my philanthropic work, traveling around the world and helping people in need. That's a lot of fun for me. It's really rewarding. You're helping people, but it's helping you, too.

I once met a man who was a billionaire, and I said to him: 'Are you a self-made man?' – and he turned around and said: 'No man is self-made;' and certainly, if you want to make films or get into television or even theatre, the amount of help that you need, the amount of people who need to give you a helping hand is extraordinary. -Christian McKay

I worry a lot about what people think. I worry people think I'm not helping them enough, that they don't like my music, that I'm playing a song too fast or talking too fast.

A lot of credit goes to Google TV for helping that process get started and helping to build something like Chromecast. -Sundar Pichai

Back when I was helping put the swing into the swinging '60s, I used to hang out with Cathy McGowan. We'd be doing 'Ready Steady Go!' on T.V., and Biba used to make our dresses.

Customer-driven innovation was at the core of Intuit's first product, 'Quicken,' and it continues to guide us as we look to solve new problems in areas like mobile payments.

Leaders are for calling people to their better angels, for helping guide them to a kind of sterner, more mature sense of what we need to do.

Storytelling helps us understand each other, translate the issues of our times, and the tools of theater and film can be powerful in helping young people to develop communication/collaboration skills, let alone improving their own confidence. -Kevin Spacey

I think a lot of trainers are forgetting to take care of themselves and focusing only on their clients. You see it with doctors, nurses, and caretakers.

We are not in Afghanistan because girls were not allowed to go to school, but helping them do so will give the Afghan people hope for a better future. -Bob Ainsworth

The vast majority of people who speak to me say they have had brilliant care.

Anger, if used properly, might be for a cause, like helping feed children or stopping abuse somewhere. When we understand that every quality has importance and value, then we open up to this. Shining a light on these shadow qualities gives it balance. -Debbie Ford

What we are going to do is continue to grow our content spend on original programming, both in absolute numbers and as a percentage of our total spending, because it's been working.

There was no doubt that the star of their week was Snowy, the working barge horse who pulled us daily along the towpath. -Berlie Doherty

The existence of the Taliban, in my view, is a tragedy for Afghanistan. We as Americans need to understand our role in helping bring that tragedy about. So I think it's important to look at the stories about why these people are fighting. -Anand Gopal

In media coverage of the war, Afghans are often characterized as corrupt and deceitful. There has certainly been plenty of corruption and deceit in this conflict, but why?

Stacey Napp understands the ugly side of divorce – which is often the side that involves money.

We're going to have to rely on the world of Islam, major Islamic nations, to take the lead in helping promote a very different view of Islam – peace and understanding, as opposed to the radicalization going on. The Saudis and UAE and Qatar and others are going to have to take a leading role in changing hearts and minds in the world of Islam. -Mitt Romney

Every dollar spent on education should go toward helping our teachers teach and our students learn. -Doug Ducey

Everybody in my family cooks, so growing up and being around it… if I was going to spend time with everybody, it was helping them in the kitchen. -Zac Brown

In Philly, there are a lot of social programs. If you have a degree, you can go and apply. I was basically a social worker, but I became sort of a sub teacher in a special program, helping kids with reading or math. But we would also do plays, learn about music… We were doing lots of fun stuff, but that was such hard work. -Diplo

We first started to rent old VFW halls in Philly or whatever; we rented kegs and did parties and played our own music. We had to find a way to do it because nobody else was helping us, and I think now it's important to keep those dialogues happening, those parties happening. -Diplo

Make sure you are safe, and never ever put yourself in a compromising situation, but once that is checked off the list, I think it's really important for us to remember that someone needs us, and that your act of giving/helping/doing can truly become an act of grace once you get out of your head. -Meghan Markle

When I was a child in England before the war, Christmas pudding always contained at least one shiny new sixpence, and it was considered a sign of great good luck for the new year to find one in your helping of the pudding. -Michael Korda

I traveled the country for a year and a half helping Hillary Clinton to try to become president. -Tim Ryan

I wrote 'A Mindful Nation' to promote the values of slowing down, taking care of ourselves, being kind, and helping each other. It seems to me that if we embrace these values individually, it will benefit us collectively. And our country will be a little bit better off as a result. -Tim Ryan

Hollywood is a boys' club, and that's something I thought was a stereotype – and it's not. That really shocked me. Still shocks me.

I love working with kids and helping others, so I feel like a career in teaching would be perfect. -Caroline Wozniacki

I've had a lot more success helping guys then just being punitive. -Nick Saban

Other than playing the game I love, my passion is investing in innovative companies and helping the entrepreneurs behind them succeed. -Ryan Howard

Your average person in Illinois doesn't really even know what workers' comp is. The average person doesn't know really what's going on in the pension system.

I remember my mother taking me as a very little kid to the roof of our home in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to look at the bombs exploding in the distance. She didn't want us to be scared by the booms and the strange flashes of light. It was her way of helping us to understand what was happening. -Tammy Duckworth

I'm not a big AA guy, but I'll go every once in a while. They do tell you that going out and helping other people really helps you a lot. It seems like a simple thing to say, but it's really true. -Jason Isbell

When you close down your borders, you're helping people build up a lot of hate toward you. That ungenerosity is not only not very attractive, from a moral and social standpoint, but also it's not very effective as a means of defending the country. -Andrew Solomon

As far as characters that are written as Muslims, we're only seeing one dimension. It's either the good Muslim who is helping the FBI, or the taxi driver-terrorist bundled in one. -Maysoon Zayid

Opening doors for us, helping us with our jackets and chairs – we love all that. -Rachel Shelley

I've spoken before on how the art of storytelling has been lost a bit. I definitely feel 'Empire' is helping to reprogram us back to that place where we pay attention and invest emotionally in the records and the artists. -Ne-Yo

That's the trick of free market economic theory: it doesn't just ask you to only be selfish and not care about others. It tells you that by being selfish, you are helping others. And, in fact, by trying to directly help others, you will hurt them. -Naomi Klein

The ones that I love of 'I Love Lucy' are when one of them decides they need something, and the other one is along for the ride, sort of as the voice of reason, and is helping and making it worse. -Lennon Parham

There are huge pain points experienced by parents. It's hard to find good child care options in one place. It's hard figure out things to do with your kids on the weekends or after school.

That's the most gratifying thing in the world, helping each other. -Craig Robinson

I will not be deterred from my mission of helping kids in this country. -Betsy DeVos

Dick and I became increasingly committed to helping other parents – parents from low-income families in particular. -Betsy DeVos

I don't know why you play a team sport and not be concerned about making your teammates better and helping your team win games. That's the only thing that really matters, and if you're the best player, surely you're going to have some effect on the game's outcome. -Larry Brown

As long as I feel like I'm helping kids get better, I don't see why I should stop. -Larry Brown

When the kids were young, they just wanted to be around us. We were units of comfort and support. As they get older, we work the turnstile, helping the exasperated customer pass whatever temporary obstacle is keeping them from their next exciting thing. Now we're the ones who just like having them in the room. -John Dickerson

I've always been passionate about the concept of helping the underdog. It just doesn't make sense to me as to what kind of person would take a huge platform and not use it to do something, to change something, to help people. -Jameela Jamil

I realised that we're all equal – it's all about helping each other. -Benjamin Clementine

Every decision I make is, 'How is this helping me become a billionaire?' -Draymond Green

I think a kid from the inner city, if I had to recruit, is the ideal person for MMA. They'd be less likely to be affected by hard work. They'd be less likely to not appreciate something when someone is helping them out, because they probably don't have a ton of stuff. -Tyron Woodley

Kindness towards strangers is rare in North Korea. There is a risk to helping others. The state made accusers and informers of us all. -Lee Hyeon-seo

My mom works at the VA; she's been working at the VA for 15 plus years, and yet she's helping so many veterans coming back from brown Muslim countries, and my mom treats them.

I'm a big believer in letting kids have as much responsibility as you can give them in terms of helping around the house and getting themselves dressed. -Busy Philipps

I was 14 years old when my dad went into rehab, and he stayed there for a long time – I don't know, 10 or 12 years maybe. He first was there as a resident, as someone trying to get sober, and it took a long time; and then he stayed on helping people get their GED. -Casey Affleck

I love serving people. I love helping people empower themselves. -Marion Barry

Undoubtedly, there are a number of well-developed, mainly female, stars helping Miss Taylor to hold the film industry together: Sophia Loren, Anita Ekberg, etc. But such an insistence on cheesecake smells of bankruptcy. -Patrick Kavanagh

I'm for helping the poor, always have been. And I don't think they should be bereft of healthcare. -Orrin Hatch

Once money goes into a charity, it is tax exempt, so that's a benefit you get. And in return, you have to use the assets of the charity to serve the public good. So if Trump is using this money basically to save his businesses, the money isn't helping people. That's a violation of the letter and the spirit of law. -David Fahrenthold

There are few words in Russian for the Western concept of 'law,' but there are legions of words for connections, helping people from one's neck of the woods. -Simon Sebag Montefiore

Since the beginning of establishment, poets and spoken word artists have always been both vocal supporters and critics of government.

I started playing, and people responded to it and connected with it and now, I don't even know what I'm really connecting with anymore or if I'm helping people. Now it's more of a business. -Sharon Van Etten

I didn't think I was helping other people. But I think that comes hand in hand with trying to be able to connect with people, and if you make things too personal, then it's harder for people to relate to you. Otherwise, it's just them listening to you read your diary. -Sharon Van Etten

People like to shy away from comparisons. Personally, I think that's a mistake. Comparisons can be good. People like to compartmentalize things within their own heads, and helping them do that can actually be a positive thing for the brand you're trying to build. -Scooter Braun

We are a G20 country. One of the biggest world economies. We're in the middle of three continents. Changing Saudi Arabia for the better means helping the region and changing the world. So this is what we are trying to do here. And we hope we get support from everyone. -Mohammad bin Salman

Across Europe, not just in the U.K., the old Beveridge and Bismarckian variants of the welfare state have been dismantled.

I've learned that all of us should be constantly mindful of what's going on around us. Sometimes I think we get pretty single-minded in our pursuits and forget that we really do need each other. We need to actively engage in giving and helping each other every day. -LaTanya Richardson

I spent five years running Manhattan GMAT helping young people get into business school. -Andrew Yang

I know that it's my queer perspective that's helping people make songs that the world is listening to. -Justin Tranter

A lot of writers don't know what it feels like to get on stage. They don't understand the weight that songs can carry. I got a chance to play all these shows. I got a chance to define myself through music, so when it comes to helping other people figure out what they should say, I've been through it. -Justin Tranter

I love to give the song away – it's so exciting – where, I think, a lot of younger songwriters, they struggle with that. And it's a big struggle, where they want the shine and they want people to know that it was their idea and it was their doing. But luckily, I've been through that, so I can just focus on helping other people do their thing. -Justin Tranter

When I was playing Ajax, he thinks he's a hero; he thinks he's saving people. He thinks he's helping Wade Wilson by turning him into Deadpool. -Ed Skrein

My father was retired military, and my mother was an educator. She was incredibly creative. I used to love going to her school during the summer and helping her decorate her classroom. I would draw Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck. She was a sixth grade teacher. She and my father are the ones that got me into my love of music. -Brian Tyree Henry

The biggest thing I've learned is that it's not about me. All of the things that I do have to be about bringing service to the world and helping people shift their perception. -Gabrielle Bernstein

One of my passions is women in business and helping women to get ahead in business. For women, that feedback loop can be broken. Women won't get as much feedback from male bosses as men will get.

I love just helping people; that's what I'm good at. -Linda Perry

What I do know is that liberal Democrat policies in our big cities are not helping anybody, especially our big cities. -Wendy Long

People think, for some reason, that I don't care about creativity and art, or helping people.

I want you to think about a person that's just trying to help people. -Jaden Smith

I really needed a show like 'Jane' when I was growing up, so being able to portray a positive Latina character means a lot to me because I feel like it's helping me to contribute to someone's dreams. -Andrea Navedo

It's fun to play a part in the process of helping to inform readers about their political leaders. -Amy Chozick

They also reminded us how important communications networks can be during emergencies – and that the FCC has a role to play in helping keep people safe. -Ajit Pai

I've spent my whole career trying to stay out of any box that anyone could put me in. 'I'm going to do a play now.' 'Now I'll do a musical.' That was my instinct. So I don't feel boxed in. But 'African-American woman' is part of my identity. I don't want to relinquish that – especially as a mother, helping my daughter find her identity. -Audra McDonald

I helped my mom raise so many little sisters. At 11, I was helping get them ready for school, watching over them, putting them to sleep. It's just naturally with me. -Katy Mixon

If Trump wants to corruptly direct the conduct of an investigation in order to out an FBI source who was helping our government investigate Russian interference in our electoral processes, well, Article II of the Constitution begins with these terrifying words: 'The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.' -Benjamin Wittes

I studied as an actor at the theatre conservatoire in Quebec, but by the time I got to my third year, I was more interested in directing. There's more to it than helping actors get round a stage: it's a wonderful way of telling stories. -Robert Lepage

I'm not interested in anything besides making some good music, helping some artists, being an executive. I'm pretty happy with that. -No I.D.
