People don't realize the limitations of 200 words, and the way they get chiselled down into a song that has to be sung. -Neil Peart

It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects. -Nikola Tesla

I bark my voice out through a closed throat, pretty much. It's more, perhaps, like a dog in some ways. It does have its limitations, but I'm learning different ways to keep it alive. -Tom Waits

It's funny – I was a big fan of 'The Sopranos.' It became kind of a threat to 'The X-Files' in a way because they could play with language, character, and story in ways that we never could because of the limitations of network television. -Chris Carter

There's no limitation on comics, nothing. From a logical standpoint, how can there be a limitation on comics? You can use any word in the dictionary. You can put them in any order you want to. You can use a vast variety of illustrating styles. People could do all sorts of things. -Harvey Pekar

Social media, for all of its limitations, is rarely irrelevant. The stream of updates on your Facebook page, for instance, is algorithmically engineered to be darn-near irresistible. -Ryan Holmes

Music is there for us to explore. To intentionally limit yourself to one, two, or three genres is limitation at its worst. Music is huge; it's a gigantic history lesson, and if you are true music fan or a musician, you should explore it. It's all right there in front of us. -Phil Anselmo

I have made a promise to myself that I will have no limitations as an actor. I have realised I have to pay attention to the commercials or the business aspect of cinema, but deep inside, I am purely an artiste. -Randeep Hooda

I define a 'good person' as somebody who is fully conscious of their own limitations. They know their strengths, but they also know their 'shadow' – they know their weaknesses. In other words, they understand that there is no good without bad. Good and evil are really one, but we have broken them up in our consciousness. We polarize them. -John Bradshaw

'Rules dieters' find limitations oddly freeing, because the restrictions create a framework that's easy to follow. Essentially, rules dieters don't do well when they're let off plan, mainly because they are usually emotionally attached to food in some way. -John Romaniello

I'd always vaguely expected to outgrow my limitations. One day, I'd stop twisting my hair, and wearing running shoes all the time, and eating exactly the same food every day. I'd remember my friends' birthdays, I'd learn Photoshop, I wouldn't let my daughter watch TV during breakfast. I'd read Shakespeare. -Gretchen Rubin

They say that people teach what they need to learn. By adopting the role of happiness teacher, if only for myself, I was trying to find the method to conquer my particular faults and limitations. -Gretchen Rubin

The fundamental difficulty that most novelists face when they are trying to adapt their own book into a screenplay is realizing that a screenplay is a completely different way of storytelling, and it has limitations. -Barry Eisler

We have all kinds of limitations as human beings. I mean we can't see the whole electromagnetic spectrum; we can't see the very small; we can't see the very far. So we compensate for these short comings with technological scaffoldings. The microscope allows us to extend our vision into the micro-sphere. -Jason Silva

Techno-optimism is a belief in the power of technology to extend our sphere of possibilities and, ultimately, a belief that technology helps us solve and transcend problems, limitations and obstacles. -Jason Silva

Human beings are attracted to novelty: to probe the 'adjacent possible.' We didn't stay in the caves. We didn't stay on the planet, and soon we won't stay within the limitations of our biology. We move forward. We transcend our limits. We go to the moon, and we create the Internet. -Jason Silva

Our public schools arbitrarily define science as explaining the world by natural processes alone. In essence, a religion of naturalism is being imposed on millions of students. They need to be taught the real nature of science, including its limitations. -Ken Ham

Some things are very low profile, but if they excite me creatively, I accept them. Sometimes there are high-profile projects, and you have to do it. We all have human limitations. It is a painful decision to turn things down. Even accepting 'Slumdog Millionaire' was a decision that I had to sacrifice another project. -A. R. Rahman

I feel very much that I am a human being, with human limitations, and I need to respect that. -Phoebe Philo

Artists who take on curatorial activities have the advantage of negating the professional hurdles and limitations comprising institutions. -Michelle Grabner

A weak, insecure nation needs sporting heroes, players larger than life on the cricketing field, who can transcend the limitations of their country and team. -Shashi Tharoor

There is no time and space limitation for public accountability on the Internet. Creative commonality is standard and does not resemble the authoritarian style of the dead communist experience. It seems that it is no longer society's obligation to understand legislation; it is a duty for governments to be understood by their people. -Eduardo Paes

An empire that extends itself selectively is just being prudent about its own limitations. A republic that supports democratization selectively is another matter. -Noah Feldman

I didn't have the worst childhood, but I didn't have the best, and when you grow up like that, you have certain limitations invariably stuck inside you. Slipknot was a way to work it out. -Corey Taylor

To be honest, and this comes out of left field, but I would love to do something with Jay-Z or Eminem. I have no limitations when it comes to the stuff I want to do musically. So to be able to do something like that I think would be really, really cool. -Corey Taylor

Great guitar players are a dime a dozen. It is sometimes your very limitations as players that set you apart from the crowd. -Dean Wareham

There's no statute of limitations on doing what's right. -Louie Gohmert

Space is as infinite as we can imagine, and expanding this perspective is what adjusts humankind focus on conquering our true enemies, the formidable foes: ignorance and limitation. -Vanna Bonta

Compared with other recent presidents whose stumbles and failures have assaulted the national self-esteem, memories of Kennedy continue to give the country faith that its better days are ahead. That's been reason enough to discount his limitations and remain enamored of his presidential performance. -Robert Dallek

True, most Americans give lip service to the proposition that even the most exalted among us have their flaws, but we are eager to believe that presidents manage to rise above the limitations that beset the rest of us. -Robert Dallek

I doubt there's any government in the world that guides itself primarily by strategy or conceptual documents or worldview. Anybody who has the reins of power has to look at practical limitations and tradeoffs – the fact that you can focus at most on one or two things at a time, that resources are limited. -Barton Gellman

I play football in training all the time with my male friends, who are also professionals. But playing together in competition? I just don't see it. We have the ability, we have the technique, we have the tactical understanding, but there are physical limitations. You can't get away from that. -Marta

I would not want the limitations held by the name of a classical musician. I want many people to enjoy my music much beyond just classical music fans. I think the term, 'violinist,' keeps me distant from the audience. I want to communicate with them more. -Ji-Hae Park

In Israel, I think I have the image of an 'Ashkenazi woman' as a stereotype. Someone once told me that I look like a deodorant commercial. But my appearance is misleading; I can be emotionally aggressive, too, and in 'Law and Order,' I once played a murderer. I see no limitations. I see both my toughness and the softness. -Mili Avital

With 'Game of Thrones,' there are no real limitations. -Nathalie Emmanuel

I have a fairly realistic idea about what my gifts and limitations are. -Amanda Peet

There are certain vulnerabilities and insecurities that go along with not being linked to another person in a contractual way, even if it's an unspoken contract. People in New York manage that pretty well. I prefer choice and desire over convention and limitation. -Jamie Johnson

Science fiction is fantasy about issues of science. Science fiction is a subset of fantasy. Fantasy predated it by several millennia. The '30s to the '50s were the golden age of science fiction – this was because, to a large degree, it was at this point that technology and science had exposed its potential without revealing the limitations. -Raymond E. Feist

Retirees who are on Medicare will suffer the consequences of 700 billions of Medicare dollars instead being used to cover the skyrocketing cost of Obamacare. In essence, less dollars for seniors means less service. Not fair. The Boomers are going to take the 'hit.' In Obamacare, 'too old' has limitations of service. -Suzanne Somers

I knew from the age of four that I wanted to preach. I didn't even consider it strange that grown people were listening to this kid preaching until I was around thirteen. I have never believed in limitations. -Al Sharpton

The Y2K problem is not caused by technical limitations. We simply forgot to think of the problem. -Hasso Plattner

Kids only learn that the stove is hot when they put their finger on and they burn it. This, unfortunately, is the limitation of our precious brain. -Hasso Plattner

We're shaking loose viruses and dislodging them from their natural ecological limitations, places where they aren't very abundant and have competition, even within a single animal. We introduce them into a new, rich habitat called the human population, where they can flourish more abundantly and cause more trouble. -David Quammen

My cinema is an extension of myself. A sort of life-testimony of my vital experience, with my few virtues and my numerous limitations. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Whenever I see a forecast written out to two decimal places, I cannot help but wonder if there is a misunderstanding of the limitations of the data, and an illusion of precision. -Barry Ritholtz

I don't want to pretend to be a prophet or a saint. I'm very conscious of my limitations. I know my flaws. But I don't like lying. -Norman Finkelstein

I love a challenge. And I love defying limitation, gender stereotypes, and people's expectations of me as an actress. -Gwendoline Christie

I sort of locked into the idea that if I could be the perfect son to both of my parents, well maybe that would be enough to keep them together. And ultimately, obviously, it wasn't. Regardless of what I tried to do. That was a lesson about limitations. -Justin Trudeau

I believe in the power of media. I really do. It's my soapbox. And I do have an agenda, because I'm enraged by the limitations forced on people – by poverty, oppression, hatred, fear – and I'm saddened by the kind of loss we all experienced due to the contributions that people cannot make because of their circumstances. -Jenji Kohan

I felt frustrated by the limitations of rock and the lifestyle of touring around on a bus and playing the same songs over and over. So I went back to school to study music, and one of the things I got into was the Italian opera composer Puccini. -Rivers Cuomo

'Dead Aid' is about the inefficacy and the limitations of large-scale aid programs in creating economic growth and reducing poverty in Africa. -Dambisa Moyo

The old injunction 'Don't talk with your mouth full' is based on the presumption that, however multifunctional a mouth may be, it should only perform one job at a time. Humans have found a way around this limitation in the form of food writing. -Bee Wilson

In my own life I studied music, not creative writing; I see a novel as music – an opening as an overture, themes and subplots as lines in a fugue. The chance to write a novel about a musician boxed in by all kinds of limitations but who plays out his ultimate struggle for freedom at the piano was irresistible. -Nicole Mones

I think everybody thinks they're an amazing singer, but I'm one of those guys who realizes where his limitations are, and it's definitely with singing and dancing. -Clay Matthews III

Of our relation to all creation we can never know anything whatsoever. All is immensity and chaos. But, since all this knowledge of our limitations cannot possibly be of any value to us, it is better to ignore it in our daily conduct of life. -H. P. Lovecraft

If I had the gift of Jerry Seinfeld, of Bill Cosby, of Lewis Black, these instinctively brilliant comic minds, then you go that route! But you gotta know your limitations.

If the ways of the Almighty are not humanly logical, it is not the fault of the Almighty but of the limitations of human logic. -Maria Montessori

If you just storyboard something, you've already planned it, and you're stuck in the limitations of your imagination. -Daniel Espinosa

As an actress, you know there are limitations on what you can do creatively. -Michelle Yeoh

I think the frustration you can get into as a young artist is when you realize your limitations, but you want to accomplish that rather than seeing that you don't have to do everything. Just focus on your strengths. -Jose James

There would be more sense in insisting on man's limitations because he cannot be a mother than on a woman's because she can be. -Elizabeth Cady Stanton

We have the idea of saying that put limitations on bailouts, so that the bailouts don't occur in the future, so that we don't have to do the – look to see AIG situations or Bear Stearns situations or the Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, which is probably going to be more money spent on those two institutions than the Congress spent on the TARP program. -Scott Garrett

There are a lot of us that want to see limitations on refugee resettlement programs. -Jeff Duncan

At its very core, virtual reality is about being freed from the limitations of actual reality.

Experiencing mobile VR is like when you first tried a decent desktop VR experience. -John Carmack

It is true that the gameplay for 'Orcs&Elves' was designed around the limitations of mobile phones, and that if we were starting completely from scratch for the DS, we would probably do things a bit differently, but the bottom line is that when we sit a random DS player down with the game, they have a lot of fun. -John Carmack

There is a recognition that Second Amendment rights, like First Amendment and other rights, come with responsibilities and limitations.

I don't want to not be African. The goal is to live in a world where my race doesn't limit my access, where I can see myself represented in the highest level of society without any limitation. -Kerry Washington

I found filmmaking to be a very practical art form. It's about figuring out how to create within the very practical limitations/constraints of time, money, and large groups of collaborators. -Jeff Nichols

I really like the idea of modesty. By the time I got into music, I was already wearing the scarf all the time, and it's really personal to me, my Muslim beliefs, so I decided to keep it and find a way to work around it. I don't see it as a restriction or limitation – I can still be me and get into music and be an entertainer. -Yuna

To understand the power of the priesthood, we must know its limitations. -Russell M. Nelson

In any age range, there are some limitations in terms of good, good parts. -Martin Landau

My nucleus of friends or something protects me from the machinery that is Hollywood. I don't think I'm on the same quest that a lot of people are. I guess that could be a limitation. -Holly Hunter

I like the South: Southern literature and that relationship between grotesqueness and living below the Mason-Dixon line. But I also understand that people view it as a limitation – as an actor and as a person – perceptions that are really wrong: that you are ignorant and possibly illiterate, or that it's cute. -Holly Hunter

I think that is just a limitation of any questionnaire – that we apply a frame of reference or standard. It's a well-known finding in psychology that when people are total beginners at a skill, they tend to overrate their skill level. They don't know what they don't know. The more expert you are, the more critical you become. -Angela Duckworth

Planet colonization is not a short term concern of mine. The physical limitations of space travel render it low on the list for me. -Chris Sacca

He knows my limitations and where I'm a good wife and a good mom. -Angelina Jolie

Just being able to trade financial commodities is a serious limitation because financial commodities represent only a tiny fraction of the reality of the real commodity exposure picture. We need to be active in the underlying physical commodity markets in order to understand and make prices. -Blythe Masters

You come off the kind of commercial success that 'Rumours' had, and you see that there are limitations to that as well as freedoms. -Lindsey Buckingham

I'm not that knowledgeable with the guitar – I just find ways that are pretty creative, but it's all within the framework and the limitations of what I can do. -Lindsey Buckingham

McRaven

I believe in limitations. I think the worst art ever made – in my opinion, because it's all so subjective – is where the artist had complete freedom. -Fred Armisen

When you get older, you start to doubt, and you put limitations on yourself. But little Teyonah had no fear. -Teyonah Parris

I don't do anything digital. Everything is analog, and that's a limitation for me.

I work in response to the limitations of any situation and in relationship to what's possible. -Jessica Stockholder

In traditional 3D printing, the gantry size poses an obvious limitation for the designer who wishes to print in larger scales and achieve structural and material complexity. -Neri Oxman
