I think a lot of times we can get distracted and not be in the moment with people and be missing all the life happening in the moment. -Angela Kinsey

'I Know You Care' is about my dad. And I haven't seen him for a long, long time. And my parents divorced when I was really young. And I guess I just wanted a – it was my way of saying that I wasn't bitter or angry anymore. I was just sad and just felt like something was missing. -Ellie Goulding

I start really missing London when I go away. I have a little flat, but very central. I live above a pub and you'd think it'd be a nightmare, but I like hearing the music and it's quite comforting. -Ellie Goulding

Our lives are pretty calm. Merging on the freeway in the closest you get to risking your life. So what's missing now is that primal emotion of being scared to death, and I think that's why people crave thrills like roller coasters or scary movies. They give you the chance to feel this very primal emotion in a very controlled environment. -Oren Peli

'Nuclear' is nothing but trouble. Do you say 'new-clear' or do you say 'nuke-you-ler'? Whoever invented that word had obviously never studied the human mouth. We don't have enough muscles in our face to make that group of letters come out smoothly. The word is missing a middle syllable, for cryin' out loud. -Paul Feig

Sometimes people who want to understand Haiti from a political perspective may be missing part of the picture. They also need to look at Haiti from a psychological perspective. -Jean-Bertrand Aristide

We've all seen great actors and actresses who are missing a certain chemistry. And it's not about getting along or not getting along. -Johnny Galecki

If you think of exercise as a 60-minute commitment 3 times a week at the gym, you're missing the point completely. If you think that going on a diet has something to do with nutrition, you don't see the forest through the trees. It is a lifestyle. I know it sounds cliche, but you have to find things you love to do. -Brett Hoebel

There's a darkness under 'The Hangover' because ultimately there's a missing person and it's not really that funny. There's a sort of darkness under it that I love, and still people are laughing as hard if not harder than they did in 'Old School.' -Todd Phillips

There's plenty to read about keeping your sanity while raising children, but it's all common-sense stuff about task division and taking breaks and the relentlessly repeated magic of date night with your spouse. What's missing is some 'tude. -Jeffrey Kluger

I spend a great deal of time on research, on finding all the available accounts of a scene or incident, finding out all the background details and the biographies of the people involved there, and I try to run up all the accounts side by side to see where the contradictions are, and to look where things have gone missing. -Hilary Mantel

Talk about your negative experiences with the father, with your girlfriends. Not with your children. And bite your tongue when it comes to diminishing, denying, dismissing, name-calling. -Iyanla Vanzant

You rarely find someone who sings really well and who produces really well; it's a problem, and I just think it's a missing link in the music scene. -Grimes

The element which is conveniently missing from today's Republican Party is the human one. People's hopes and realities become numbers and words, devoid of personality and easy to erase. -Steven Weber

We have as a nation been duped by those who use our guilt about how we treated the innocent pawns in the Vietnam War game – the soldiers – into missing the point once again about the utter senselessness that is war. -Steven Weber

I wish that the circuses that were around now felt like they did then. They're not quite as elegant or as magical as they used to be. There was something about the old tent shows, the Big Top, the canvas, the lights, the sawdust, the hay and the animals that's just missing now. Now, it's all urbanized and maybe a little garish. -Francis Lawrence

I joke, but only half joke, that if you show up in an American hospital missing a finger, no one will believe you until they get a CAT scan, MRI and orthopedic consult. -Abraham Verghese

I wanted to write a voice that for me, as a reader, had been missing from the chorus: the voice of an angry woman. -Claire Messud

When I was a child I wanted to be Pope. My greatest disappointment is missing out on that. I also wanted to be a tap dancer but I never fulfilled that ambition either. -Peter Ackroyd

I think sometimes we rush through countries, ticking off the attractions, but that's missing the point. -Mem Fox

The reason people talk about cable cutting is they imagine the price burden will get so high that people won't be able to pay it. They're missing something: that the actual price of the electronic package is going down. They've got their Internet, phone, TV, all of it. Now people are using more and more stuff for less. -Jeff Bewkes

My mother was religious; she was knowledgeable about mythology and scriptures; she could tell the metaphysical nuances and make the story come to life with their deeper significance. The current generation is missing out on this. -Vilayanur S. Ramachandran

I maybe missed money in my childhood, but I didn't miss love, that's for sure. My dad wasn't there, but I can tell you not even once did I think I was missing something. -Olga Kurylenko

There was this song I was working on called 'Swing.' It was almost finished, but there was something missing, and I couldn't for the life of me figure it out. And then this little piece of information – this little tweet – came to the forefront of my mind. -Imogen Heap

There's something missing about how we're informing the youngsters coming along about what matters in the world. We teach them the numbers and the letters, but we fail to communicate the importance of our connection to the living world. -Sylvia Earle

There were so many lessons I learned the hard way: missing out on a raise because I didn't know to ask, having colleagues consistently get credit for my ideas because of how I spoke up in meetings. When I looked for a resource that addressed the challenges I was facing, I couldn't find it. There was nothing. -Kathryn Minshew

When I looked at the state of women's MMA, what I saw was that it was missing rivalries or anything theatrical about it. Everybody was trying to be Miss America, unwilling to go under any kind of criticism, and taking the safe answers. I thought I needed to do whatever I could to get attention. -Ronda Rousey

Sometimes people who want to understand Haiti from a political perspective may be missing part of the picture. They also need to look at Haiti from a psychological perspective. Most of the elite suffer from psychogenic amnesia. That means it's not organic amnesia, such as damage caused by brain injury. It's just a matter of psychology. -Jean-Bertrand Aristide

And as I stumbled onto Eastern philosophy and Buddhism, it was the first time I had ever read any sort of philosophy that really made a tremendous amount of sense. What I liked that was missing from my experience of Christianity growing up was a sort of acceptance, a sort of being OK with being imperfect and not focusing on the sin. -Alan Ball

What's missing in the musical theater is producers willing to nurture new work, raise the money and put it on. -Harold Prince

I find so many songwriters today are missing an element… either the production is amazing but the songs aren't, or it's the other way around. -Rufus Wainwright

Despite their good intentions, today's businesses are missing an opportunity to integrate social responsibility and day-to-day business objectives – to do good and make money simultaneously. -Cindy Gallop

There aren't any looks or customs I wish would come back. Today almost anything goes. Culture constantly devours the past so there's not much that's missing. -Graydon Carter

Working 14 hours a day until you're 55 and missing your kids growing up is not what I would consider a recipe for happiness. -Robert Harris

There's something that happens with the collection of a large amount of data when it's dumped into an Excel spreadsheet or put into a pie chart. You run the risk of completely missing what it's about. -Aaron Koblin

For years I had lived in my body half-consciously, ignoring it mostly, dismissing its agendas wherever I could, and forever pressing it into the service of mental conceptions that resulted, almost as a by-product, sometimes in its pleasuring and sometimes in its abuse. -Rachel Cusk

If I try to articulate every little detail in a drawing, it would be like missing the forest for the trees, so it's just about getting the outline of the forest. -Jeff Koons

People's hands fascinate me. It's tempting to look at a businessman's left hand and see if there's an indentation from a missing wedding ring. Or maybe there's a tan line and the skin is pressed down where's he's worked a ring off his finger. -Benedict Cumberbatch

You don't restore 'The Last Supper' by filling in the missing bits – you preserve. You accept the material that has somehow survived. -David Chipperfield

Most of us think of pride as self-centeredness, conceit, boastfulness, arrogance, or haughtiness. All of these are elements of the sin, but the heart, or core, is still missing. The central feature of pride is enmity – enmity toward God and enmity toward our fellowmen. -Ezra Taft Benson

I came out to my parents as gay, and then I realized, you know, four or five years later, that I wasn't really happy, no relationships were working, and there was something missing in my life, and you know, I was doing drag, performing and stuff, and I realized through that arc that I was much happier doing that. -Candis Cayne

When I worked as a music and fashion photographer, I always had the nagging feeling that there was something missing, that I wasn't using my skills productively. I gave up photography – I walked away from it completely – and started doing care work. -Giles Duley

Comic-Con has become more of a pop cultural festival, and to not be included feels like you're missing the biggest celebration of the year. -Felicia Day

If you've never tasted what it's like to get up in the morning and be pleased to go to work, you don't know what you're missing. -Larry Smith

I lived in the States from 1996 till 2000. I attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston in 1997. But I wasn't the most hard-working student. I rarely went to school. At that time, I seriously doubted that you could learn creativity in school. Music isn't something you can just learn from other people. Sometimes I regret missing classes. -Psy

I would like to perform more in English. But there have to be many good things gathered for me to be willing to do a movie. I watch trailers of every new American movie and I'm, like, 'OK, I'm not missing anything!' -Ludivine Sagnier

I have Czech, I have Russian, I have English, I have Italian. Uh, what am I missing? A little bit of Irish. The Russian is Jewish. So I'm your classic American mutt. -Joe Lhota

I'm home a lot. Because I live in Ireland, we can live under the celebrity radar. I might go missing for a whole year. -Bono

Acting is about enhancing your life, not representing something that's missing. -Katherine Parkinson

I know what I'm missing. I know what I have to work on. Coloratura. And I sing sharp sometimes. It happens when I'm nervous. -Anna Netrebko

My Hamlet was about as alienated as you can get. Mine was a bitter and lonely prince. Valid, I think, but maybe tough to root for. I think that romance was missing. -Stephen Lang

When you go to jail, there's so much simple stuff missing. You just want some good toilet paper or a real toothbrush, a real blanket and a real bed to lay in. -Ja Rule

If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments. -Steven Wright

People like music when they're in love, but they don't need it as much. You need music when you're missing someone or you're pining for someone or you're forgetting someone or you're trying to process what just happened. -Taylor Swift

When you are missing someone, time seems to move slower, and when I'm falling in love with someone, time seems to be moving faster. -Taylor Swift

I don't want an opportunity to go missing because of my lack of organization. -Sandra Bullock

I seem to have fallen for women with missing parents. Goodness knows what it signifies. -Salman Rushdie

I've done four videos for older people under my new brand, Prime Time, and the missing link was yoga.

It's easy, you can't get hurt, it's very doable, and I've done it in ten-minute segments. -Jane Fonda

I never think, 'Where am I going to be in a year's time?' That seems to be a sure way of missing the fact that you might be quite happy now. -Jo Brand

My whole family is missing that sports gene. I hope I didn't screw that up by marrying a great golfer. -Penn Jillette

In politics, readily dismissing inconvenient people can easily extend to dismissing inconvenient truths about them. -Daniel Goleman

Dismissing socialization and gender roles as piddling compared to this amorphous idea of 'maternal imperative' is part of the reason progress is stalled for family-friendly policies. -Jessica Valenti

George Bush ran a campaign where he bragged about being an anti-intellectual, dismissing his Harvard and Yale pedigree, pretending he was an American every day, ordinary everyman, and as a result of that, played up his fumbling speech because it signified that he was a good guy. That is deeply and profoundly anti-intellectual. -Michael Eric Dyson

Wall Street has come to America's heartland, really. The only thing missing are the skyscrapers, you know? -Dennis Quaid

Whatever's missing in your relationship, including a marriage, is what you're not bringing to it. -Nadine Velazquez

The Hollywood lifestyle was just overwhelming. A party here, an interview there, magazine and modeling shoots daily, your face everywhere and girls throwing themselves at you. As great as it felt at the time, I still felt something missing, and that I needed to change. -Kirk Cameron

If I had my choice, I would be writing by typewriter. I worked on newspapers for 10 years. I typed with the touch system, and unfortunately, you can't keep typewriters going today. You have to take the ribbons back to be re-inked. You have to – it's a horrible search to try to find missing parts. So I went to the computer. -Tom Wolfe

I like missing someone and being missed; I like looking forward to seeing him again. I like getting emails and texts with lots of xxx's. -Deborah Moggach

If you read 'Lord of the Rings' and dismiss it as a lie because it has orcs and elves, you're missing the whole point of the story. If children don't have to be concerned about strangers because there's no such thing as a Big Bad Wolf dressed like Granny, you're missing the point. -Doug TenNapel

A lot of movies about artificial intelligence envision that AI's will be very intelligent but missing some key emotional qualities of humans and therefore turn out to be very dangerous. -Ray Kurzweil

I'm always consciously trying to make what I feel is missing. -Pharrell Williams

Girls are complicated. The instruction manual that comes with girls is 800 pages, with chapters 14, 19, 26 and 32 missing, and it's badly translated, hard to figure out. -Hugh Laurie

It doesn't get any more underground, conscious or indie than Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, but because they got a couple of really big pop hits, actually some of the biggest pop hits that hip-hop has ever seen, people are missing that part of their story. People are not counting that blessing. -Talib Kweli

If you're an athlete and you completely focus on the body, you're missing other components. Similarly, if you're trying to broaden your mind but not also being attentive to your sense of humour and your spirit, then you're not going to grow and develop so fast. -Aimee Mullins

The most extraordinary thing about trying to piece together the missing links in the evolutionary story is that when you do find a missing link and put it in the story, you suddenly need all these other missing links to connect to the new discovery. The gaps and questions actually increase – it's extraordinary. -David Attenborough

I wanted to have more songs with religious backgrounds. The Christmas record has strong, traditional hymns, but it also has a song called 'Christmas in Heaven' about missing someone that you love that's passed on, and wondering what's going on up there on Christmas. -Scotty McCreery

'Bum's Rush' is a piece about timing, and everything that's in the piece needs to be with the piece. If people are missing, or marking, or unable to use their voices, the impulses that prompt the action are lost, and its logic crumbles. -Twyla Tharp

Nobody worked harder than Mozart. By the time he was twenty-eight years old, his hands were deformed because of all the hours he had spent practicing, performing, and gripping a quill pen to compose. That's the missing element in the popular portrait of Mozart. -Twyla Tharp

A part of me is missing when I can't ski, but I've learned there's more to define me and make me happy, like stand-up paddling and Jet Skiing – things I'd never done before. Or being with people I love and just enjoying life. -Lindsey Vonn

When a person doesn't have gratitude, something is missing in his or her humanity. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude. -Elie Wiesel

I came from a very loving home, had a happy life with no great aspirations, but going to the seminary changed me. There was a chunk of my childhood missing. Once I'd realised it wasn't for me, I still felt a tremendous pressure to continue for fear of letting everybody down. -Johnny Vegas

My whole life, I've wanted things before I was ready. I was always pushing for the next job, the next success. I was so focused on achieving and the path that I was missing some great point about life. -David Duchovny

A book without potty humor is like a banana split without hot fudge. It can still be good, I suppose, but you kinda get the feeling that something is missing. -Dav Pilkey

Anyone working in the media can tell you that there seems to be an always-ready-to-explode segment of the populace for whom offense is a fate worse than anything imaginable. You'd think offense is one of the most calamitous things that could happen to a human being; right up there with the loss of a limb, or just missing a parking space. -Dick Cavett

The people who are teaching religion and not teaching love are missing the message. -Ziggy Marley

I had braces; I was lucky, 'cause I had some snaggle teeth. I always try and keep my retainer on me 'cause I'm paranoid about my teeth. It was run over by a car, so half of it's missing, but it still works. -Kreayshawn

Each album takes two or two-and-a-half years to finish between recording and touring. It's like being with an old boyfriend every single night watching the same things on TV. There is a world out there going on that I'm missing. -Bat for Lashes

If you judge everything by how photographically real it looks, then you're missing out on a lot of what art is about and what communication is. There are ambiguities in life, and that should be reflected in art, cinema, and storytelling, I think. -Ben Wheatley

I never liked sleeping; I always think I am missing something. -Francisco Costa

Writing a screenplay needs to be more than words on a page – and by the way, I think the words on the page are something you have to try to execute on the highest level you can; I'm not dismissing that by any regard. -John Ridley

I can't stand the idea of missing something. I've got to know what's going on – it's like an animal instinct with me. -John Fairchild

As so much music is listened to via MP3 download, many will never experience the joy of analog playback, and for them, I feel sorry. They are missing out. -Henry Rollins

I've always been in this sort of perpetual state of existential longing. I feel like something's missing. -Juliana Hatfield

In 'Reclaiming Virtue,' I argue that we have had an element missing in moral education. That element is 'affect.' Affect is simply the technical word for feeling or emotion. -John Bradshaw

Full-body workouts are great for someone who can only train a few times per week, as missing one day will be less detrimental. -John Romaniello

I'm trying to avoid having regrets about missing opportunities. That would be the worst thing. Like having an audience waiting, and not working hard enough, and coming out with a record that disappointed them. -James Mercer

I think supporting casts in comics are missing. I think a lot of the time in comics, all we have are people in costumes talking to other people in costumes, superheroes talking to superheroes and supervillains, and that's it. -Geoff Johns

I started to work on a feature-length script about pirates in Somalia, but I knew that there was something I was missing, which was that I didn't know what day-to-day life looked like and felt like in East Africa. So I decided I had to go. -Cutter Hodierne

I don't write a play from beginning to end. I don't write an outline. I write scenes and moments as they occur to me. And I still write on a typewriter. It's not all in ether. It's on pages. I sequence them in a way that tends to make sense. Then I write what's missing, and that's my first draft. -Richard Greenberg

I write a ridiculous number of drafts. The characters change and grow through the drafting, and my understanding of them deepens. Creating characters in a novel is like shooting at clay pigeons and missing, and then missing more productively as the narrative continues. -Robert Boswell

That's the thing: once it's in their hands, it's not my book anymore, it's theirs. I have no idea what happens when they start to digest it. So when someone writes me to explain how they read it, what it was like, what they enjoyed, there's a thrill. Writers who don't make their email addresses public are missing out on something wonderful. -Rosecrans Baldwin

The need to do something about global warming is obvious. And it's also pretty clear that the public understands the need for change and is ready to embrace it. What is missing is political will in Congress to stand up to the powerful energy companies and their well-paid lobbyists. -Chellie Pingree

I try not to read reviews. It's hard not to hear what the critics are saying, but as an actor, I try not to let it in and to just give the best performances I can. At the end of the day, if you're trying to please the critics, you're missing what's really important: being creative and having fun. -Reid Scott

When I was ten years old, my dad and brother did judo, so I went along because I felt like I was missing out. They eventually gave up, and I continued, then moved into Tae Kwon Do, kickboxing and various other martial arts. I did lots of different things, but mostly things like Wushu, Jeet Kune Do, Krav Maga and stuff like that. -Scott Adkins

It's weird. All I want is to play my guitar when I am on a movie set. But then when I am out on tour, all I want to do is get into a role again. When I am doing one thing, I am missing the other. I guess that's how I know I should keep doing both. -Shane Harper

Never at any point did I feel like missing a training session. I was very keen on improving as a cricketer and as an international player. -Virat Kohli

I always had a sense of discipline in me. However, there was a time when I couldn't divide my time properly between off-field things and on-field assignments. The focus would be missing at times, and that would affect my preparation for matches. I managed to change that. -Virat Kohli

I am not doing comedy because the genre is successful. If that was the case, I would have done a run-of-the-mill comedy film. I set my own trends. I like to give something new and different to my audiences. I want to do the kind of comedy that has been missing till now. -Emraan Hashmi

The characters I've played as an actress have been really challenging and emotionally rewarding, but there was just something missing. I was finding over and over again that directors were looking to me to help with troubles on set as far as characters' relationships, special effects and story points were concerned. -Danielle Harris

I started missing acting when I was in school, and I realized after being in the business after however many years that I was really interested in film. -Gaby Hoffmann

The missing link in cosmology is the nature of dark matter and dark energy. -Stephen Hawking

If one person in a group of ten is missing the tip of his little finger, I will notice it almost immediately. This extreme attention to visual detail is not a virtue, just a fact of my person. It happens seemingly involuntarily and strikes me as neither good nor bad. -Rosemary Mahoney

There's a certain missing feeling, a void out there that I'm more than happy to fill. Without criticizing what's out there now, I'm just going to do El DeBarge. -El DeBarge

I realised that a television show on political lampoon was one genre that was missing. -Cyrus Broacha

I remember being this little girl missing her daddy and living so far away in France and from anything that was familiar to me. I felt so different and so isolated. When you're removed from everything that's familiar, you realize who you are. -Penelope Mitchell

I always tell the fans, 'Screw it! Like what you like. Listen to what you want.' Insisting that one type of music is better than the next is snobbery, and I have no time for that. Check out all the music that's out there. There's great stuff you're probably missing. -Corey Taylor

I'm not patient at all. I avoid writer's block by writing. I power through with a bad version, so I can move on, and usually once I've gotten to the next scene, I'll discover what was missing from the bad version scene. Then I can easily rewrite it to get back on the right path. -Anders Holm

I think every woman has this point in her life where she's like, 'I have a great job, great outfits and great friends, but something's missing.' -Tracy McMillan

When people grow up in atmospheres of violence or atmospheres of poverty, they don't normally use hi-falutin' language to describe those things. They would describe some brutal event the same way we would describe getting a taxi or missing the bus. -Philipp Meyer

What we want from art is whatever is missing from the lives we are already living and making. Something is always missing, and so art-making is endless. -Jane Hirshfield

If women's choices – such as taking time off to rear children – make them less productive in the economy, does adolescent boys' behavior in school make them even less so, because they are missing the educational potential of their formative years? -Sendhil Mullainathan

The one thing I regret is missing the time with my older children when they were young. -Kris Kristofferson

Originality is definitely missing from EDM. There are people looking for it and exploring but I feel it's so big now it is just getting milked. House music is losing all its melody as it becomes more about how dirty the drop is and how energetic it is. It loses touch with what music really is. -Avicii

I've gone seventy-nine hours without sleep, creating. When that flow is going, it's almost like a high. You don't want it to stop. You don't want to go to sleep for fear of missing something. -Dr. Dre

Creating a body of mathematics is about intellectual labor, not some kind of transcendental revelation. There are plenty of important components of European fractal geometry that are missing from the African version. -Ron Eglash

'The Last Patriot' is set in the present day but is based upon the premise that the Prophet Mohammed had a final revelation, he shared it with his disciples, and they killed him to keep it hidden and out of the Qur'an. If this missing revelation can be found, its impact on the world will be incredible. -Brad Thor

China's one-child policy punishes families for having 'out-of-plan' children, resulting in sex-selective abortion and tens of millions of 'missing girls' as well as forced abortion and sterilization campaigns. -Chris Smith

I don't like improvising on camera, particularly, but very often, a scene will not be working, and you rehearse it once or twice, and you realize something's missing. So I'll play with it until it makes sense. -Alan Arkin

No matter what you do or where you are, you're going to be missing out on something. -Alan Arkin

Companies are accustomed to dismissing employees for misuse of computers at work. -Bill Dedman

The sports space is so full of opinion that you aren't hearing from the athletes just speaking for themselves. We are such a Twitter-oriented society with radio talk shows, TV talk shows and social media – what you are missing is the authentic, unfiltered aspect of who these people are. -Hannah Storm

I'm terrified of missing my call time. I'll check my alarm several times before I fall asleep. -J. D. Pardo

From a young age, I understood the idea of balanced flavor – the reason you put ketchup on a hamburger. I was that kid who wouldn't eat something if there was something missing. I never really understood it until I began cooking professionally, balancing acids, sweets, spicy flavors and fat. -Michael Mina

During Grover Cleveland's second term, in the 1890s, the White House deceived the public by dismissing allegations that surgeons had removed a cancerous growth from the President's mouth; a vulcanized-rubber prosthesis disguised the absence of much of Cleveland's upper left jaw and part of his palate. -Robert Dallek

The promise of the early web was that everyone could have a website but there was something missing. Maybe the technology wasn't ready. -Matt Mullenweg

Statistics show that diversity in the media is pretty dismal. Critical voices from women and people of color are missing from many important conversations. -Cameron Russell

When I first read the script to 'Black Hawk Down,' I didn't think it was the greatest thing in the world – far from it. But I thought the script at least raised some very important questions that are missing from the final product. -Brendan Sexton III

I enjoyed being in California for a while. But that's the thing about London: you can't really shake it. I've always had the impression when I was in L.A. for long periods of time that simultaneously my life was happening somewhere else, and I'm missing it. -Chiwetel Ejiofor

Foreign languages was the only thing that interested me when I was at school, so playing in another language… it is quite demanding because if it is not your mother tongue, you are missing some connotations and some emotional depth of certain things. -Tom Wlaschiha

I'm not panicking any more or worrying about the next job. It was exhausting and making me very unhappy, and I was missing out on life. -Kerry Condon

As soon as I get bored, I start missing the kids, so I don't let myself get bored. I just go surfing. -Joel Parkinson

While 'Visitation Street' has the markings of a traditional whodunnit mystery – starting with a missing girl, intrigue and many suspicious characters – Pochoda shows her hand early on by fingering a culprit. The book turns, then, into a 'whydunnit.' -Claire Cameron

Changing what you don't like about yourself can be empowering, and that's not a bad thing. Feeling secure enough to own what is weak and missing from either your body, mind or spirit and to commit to action to change it is a good thing. -Teri Hatcher

If you're missing three or four limbs, you have special challenges going forward. And the last thing you want is to not be independent in your home. -Gary Sinise

With so many part-time people on – and not on – the job, corporate America has started to feel like it's on a permanent maternity leave. Colleagues are an amorphous, free-floating army of rotating waifs whose voicemails are clogged with plaintive requests from their own offices for missing information. -Tina Brown

I played a million different sports when I was growing up. I started when I was probably five or six, and we'd just go from activity to activity to activity. I think, finally, my parents just realized that we were missing something in our lives. They realized that it was time for us as a family to start going to church. -Sam Bradford

Inviting others to help us with our work in the Church helps them feel needed and helps them feel the Spirit. When these feelings come, many people often then realize that something has been missing from their lives. -Clayton M. Christensen

After assessing what's in your closet, make a list of what you need. Not want, but need. Write down the basics missing from your wardrobe. It could be a classic white shirt, a trenchcoat, or the perfect little black dress. Whatever the blank spots, write them down. This will be your reference for shopping. -Nina Garcia

Those companies that don't see the black and brown communities are missing, out of their closed eye, talent, which leads to money and growth. When baseball, football and basketball couldn't see the field, they missed talent and growth. The same is true in the tech industry. -Jesse Jackson

There was one 'crime' during the whole time I was at school, when a fountain pen went missing. Stealing just didn't happen. I was taught not to shoplift, not to steal, not to behave badly. We weren't even allowed to drop litter. -Joanna Lumley

I never watch TV. I know I'm missing so much, aren't I? I'm probably not. I can't stand popular TV. I've got too much to do to watch it. I know that sounds pretentious and pompous, but there you are. -Stephen Rea

I think that the effort to continue to look for some law to somehow make violence go away is missing the point. -Mitt Romney

'What am I missing?' is a much more important question than 'How cool am I?' -Paul Singer

In the rest of the world, rich people will give a donation, and businessmen give to charities. But in Mexico, the execution capacity of what we call the social sector is missing. I find it much more effective to set up the actual social organisation and then fund it with my money. -Ricardo Salinas Pliego

Children are my pet cause. I have a foster child in El Salvador, and whenever I'm home, I work for the Adam Walsh Foundation, which finds missing children. I also do some hospital visits and other things for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. -Jane Badler

We're going to need a definitive quantum theory of gravity, which is part of a grand unified theory – it's the main missing piece. -Kip Thorne

I have drawn my whole life. My parents were in the tapestry restoration business, and as a young girl, I would draw in the missing parts of the tapestry that needed to be rewoven. -Louise Bourgeois

The real thing young people should fear is missing out on those few, true, long-term friendships that make for a richer, happier life. -Robin Marantz Henig

What's upsetting about an autobiography is that the final chapter is always missing. I mean, you want the death, don't you? -Ian Mckellen

My favourite place to write is at my desk in my house in the mountains of Crete. I produce more there because one big distraction is missing: the Internet. -Neal Asher

Nonfiction is both easier and harder to write than fiction. It's easier because the facts are already laid out before you, and there is already a narrative arc. What makes it harder is that you are not free to use your imagination and creativity to fill in any missing gaps within the story. -Amy Bloom

If you are going to tell a story about a child going missing, it's going to have similarities with a real life child going missing. -James Nesbitt

Lot of work can be completed by 7 A.M.; people who wake up at 10 and 11 don't know what they are missing. -Ravi Teja

I saw the Kino print of 'The Man From Beyond,' but apparently a superior new print has been produced by Restored Serials. Maybe a few snippets of missing footage will close up some of the plot holes, but I have my doubts. -Kage Baker

I can't remember missing a practice because of illness. -Don Shula

I'm not sure the least educated members of the population are missing out on the advances in medical technology as much as they are adopting harmful behavioral habits that shorten their life. -S. Jay Olshansky

I'm no Buddhist monk, and I can't say I'm in love with renunciation in itself, or traveling an hour or more to print out an article I've written, or missing out on the N.B.A. Finals. But at some point, I decided that, for me at least, happiness arose out of all I didn't want or need, not all I did. -Pico Iyer

I feel that contemporary music, with very few exceptions, is missing the voice. You see an award show, you see a hundred extras on set dancing and special effects, and you don't see that solo voice that was the trademark of Adele. It's no accident that it was her album that ended up selling 27 million copies worldwide. -Clive Davis

I spent many years writing and directing in radio drama, so I am comfortable with an audience or a microphone, but I do worry about the blurring of an author's public persona with the work itself. A good 'performer' can make a mediocre book sound strong, and a shy author can leave listeners missing the excellence of his or her writing. -Guy Gavriel Kay

Eighty percent of flavor comes from your nose, including a set of internal nostrils. When you chew food and hold it in your mouth, the gases that are released goes into these nostrils. People who wolf their food are missing some of the flavor. -Mary Roach

If E.B. White were writing in 2013, would there be a 'Charlotte's Web' trailer and an @SomePig Twitter account? I doubt it. Yet, in a way, he'd be missing out because I'm beginning to think that some of this noise is worth making – and some of it is worth hearing, too. -Ellen Potter

L.A. is great, but it's a completely different beast. I go back to Minnesota, and I borrow a bike from my neighbor and go around Lake Harriet saying 'Hi' to people. Some of that is missing in L.A. -Yara Shahidi

As a seven-year-old, I remember when Etan Patz disappeared and was immortalized as the first missing-child face on a milk carton. -Chelsea Cain

Every time you write a song, you're looking for some sort of perfection, and you never quite reach it. You're always looking for that extra missing piece. -Alex Turner

What art is, in reality, is this missing link, not the links which exist. It's not what you see that is art; art is the gap. -Marcel Duchamp

I spent 250 to 300 days of every year on the road. But in the end, I felt something was missing. I needed to be anchored so I could concentrate, so in 2000, I established a new methodology – the one I use today. I spent the week in my office and travelled every weekend, even at Christmas. -Hans-Ulrich Obrist

I have an amino acid missing that you can only get from certain kinds of eggs. So, I've been eating a few eggs. -Bryce Dallas Howard

On telly, there's been a move towards entertainment – with some very high-powered, fast-moving dramas. Then we have the Internet, where we get our information but it's all in bite-size pieces. I think the documentary, as a form, actually speaks to what's missing. -Beeban Kidron

Every entrepreneur talks about the passion you have for your work, and I think that's what's missing with a lot of women in business. -Martha Stewart

Once, I was out of the house 93 days in a year. I was missing grandparents' days at schools and kids' birthdays and Valentine's Day, not to mention the fact that when you're on the road, you can't get anything done. I had to learn to say 'No,' cut back on travel. -Jerry Spinelli

I have accused L.B. Management of failing to report to me, and I've told L.B. Management the money is missing, and it could very well be embezzled. -Jeff Greene

In Silicon Valley, I point out that many of the more successful entrepreneurs seem to be suffering from a mild form of Asperger's where it's like you're missing the imitation, socialization gene. -Peter Thiel

My bedroom was filled with reading material: books salvaged from dustbins, books borrowed from friends, books with missing pages, books found in the street, abandoned, unreadable, torn, scribbled on, unloved, unwanted and dismissed. My bedroom was the Battersea Dogs' Home of books. -Christopher Fowler

I remember disassembling and putting an old analog alarm clock together. It was a lot of fun figuring out why it still worked with that one spring missing. -Markus Persson

I had to make a choice at one point in my life, of missing films or missing my children. It was a very easy decision to make because I missed my children so very much. -Audrey Hepburn

I've been to more racetracks than any other person I've met. Almost every track, missing only a few of the newer ones. -Dick Van Patten

If you lose a parent, no matter at what age, every five or 10 years you have a different way of missing them and a different way of getting on with your life. -Rory Kinnear

I'm really busy, but I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. -Gabrielle Aplin

Diversity really means becoming complete as human beings – all of us. We learn from each other. If you're missing on that stage, we learn less. We all need to be on that stage. -Juan Felipe Herrera

Put all of your savings on autopilot, and you won't likely notice the missing cash. -Jean Chatzky

I would die if I had to be confined. I don't want to feel that I'm missing out on experiencing as much as I can. For me, experiencing is knowing people all over the world and being able to photograph. -Mary Ellen Mark

There would be no need for love if perfection were possible. Love arises from our imperfection, from our being different and always in need of the forgiveness, encouragement and that missing half of ourselves that we are searching for, as the Greek myth tells us, in order to complete ourselves. -Eugene Kennedy

I hate the idea of any kid missing out on the magic of reading. -Alexandra Adornetto

I returned from my last L.A. visit to find myself tipping the scales like Homer Simpson when he tries to gain enough weight to qualify as disabled to be allowed to work from home. All I was missing was his kaftan and Fat Guy Hat. So, I decided it was time to diet. -John Niven

The theme of sisters – of missing sisters, of needing sisters, the special love that sisters share or the antagonism sisters share – is something that is very close to me. -Miriam Toews

I had written two or three books before my husband noticed that in every one of them a family member was missing. He suggested that it was because my father's death, when I was five, utterly changed my world. I can only suppose he is right and that this is the reason I am drawn to a narrative where someone's life is changed by loss. -Jenny Nimmo

When I was a young artist, and I would go look at other artists' career retrospectives, and I was often disappointed with the lack of story line… What was missing to me was the story of where the artist came from and how they got to where they were. -Robert Gober

I travel to a lot of schools, and I see firsthand that while we do still have a lot of traditional readers, we don't have as many as we used to. And we're missing an awful lot of kids entirely… Do I want to get rid of the Internet? Obviously, I don't want that because of all the amazing things it brings. -Patrick Carman

How much of our lives is consumed with meeting people, attracting people, keeping people and missing people? Usually, when everything is resolved romantically in one of my books, the characters stop talking in my head, and I stop telling the story. -Susanna Kearsley

I still have my high school copy of the collected Poe – missing its covers and pretty worse for the wear. -Matthew Pearl

This band has a weight to it. Our songs feel important to play… That was missing in my life without Sleater-Kinney. -Janet Weiss

The seed of an idea laying dormant in an old sketchbook is fed the missing ingredient from a new experience. Trying to share some of these experiences, some of the wonders, is one of the reasons why I do books. -Michael Foreman

The missing toothbrush was nothing compared with the fact that the spacecraft was orientated to ascend, not descend. I would have gone up and up instead of going back down to the ground. -Valentina Tereshkova

I figure anytime you put an adjective before 'writer,' it's a way of dismissing the writer. -Stephen Graham Jones

People don't stop at a size 12. I feel like there's a big thing missing where you can't dress to your mood above a certain number. -Melissa McCarthy

Food is celebratory. People who don't cook don't know how much fun they're missing. -Leo Buscaglia

Love is the missing factor; there is a lack of affection, of warmth in relationship; and because we lack that love, that tenderness, that generosity, that mercy in relationship, we escape into mass action, which produces further confusion, further misery. -Jiddu Krishnamurti

'Mosaic' is about what we see and what we don't see. I learned how people can develop other senses to compensate for a missing one when I was a child. My best friend, Carol, who is profoundly deaf, saved me from an approaching car that she 'heard' when I didn't. -Gayle Lynds

I have American friends in France, and when I meet with them, they tell me about everything that is wrong with France. I think there is a general expat syndrome, which means that whatever country you are in, you are always missing your own country and always thinking that the country you live in is actually not as good as it could be. -Maelle Gavet

There's always a fine line between being too focused and missing opportunities, or being too wide and taking on too many. -Maelle Gavet

I feel like elements of race and identity and ethnicity are sort of missing in all of literature, not just in women's literature. -Cristina Henriquez

There are many reasons I love novels with multiple narratives. In novels where the events are filtered through the consciousness of a single 'reliable' narrator, I often wonder, is this the whole story? What could be missing here? -Susan Barker

Having children showed me a whole different kind of love that I had never known. It was something that had always been missing. Complete love. I would die for them. -Scott Weiland

Writing a log line helps you define – for yourself – the essential elements of the plot. It will also let you know immediately if major components of the plot are missing. -David Macinnis Gill

There's inevitably something missing when you grow up in this kind of an environment when your parents travel a lot. When your father is famous, you are looked at and expected of. There are standards you need to meet. -Natalie Cole

Things like the movie 'Memento' are interesting to me because our memories of the things we've done and how we've behaved form our notion of who we are, what our character is. So if part of that were missing, what does that actually say about you? And what does it say about your sense of responsibility for things if you can't remember them? -Paula Hawkins

We have lost the art of conversation. People are shy and don't know how to approach other people, and they are missing opportunities for relationships. And no one's entertaining at home anymore. They're not having people over for dinner. -Letitia Baldrige

I'm missing work. We didn't have enough money for preschool. I had a panic attack. I couldn't do it. I became one of those horrible foster parents who give the kids back. -Vanessa Diffenbaugh

I believe that we are missing a great opportunity. We as Republicans are not really emphasizing what brings us together, and that's conservative values: love of the country. Love of family. Personal responsibility. Hard work. Optimism. Those are the things that we should be communicating to Latinos, and we're doing that very poorly. -Lionel Sosa

I started watching so many different types of women, saw all the complexities of them, all the ways and the look and shapes they could be, and I felt it was missing for me in American film. I didn't see anybody I was watching in movies that felt like me. I felt rather tortured and lonely about it. -Brie Larson

Pirate ships were built for stealth and invisibility. They filed no manifests with any agency or government. When they went missing or sunk, nobody went looking for them. They simply disappeared into the ether. -Robert Kurson

I didn't care how much work it would take, and I didn't see the time invested as a waste or like I was missing out on anything. Ballet became my ultimate passion. -Misty Copeland

Finding ballet was like finding this missing piece of myself. -Misty Copeland

I missed the television train at some point. I don't know what happened, but now I've created a complex about it. I'm missing out on what everybody's watching, and now I can't even begin to think about starting to watch a television show because it's been so long. I don't even have a Netflix account. -Dakota Johnson

If you're not hiring from some groups of the population, then you're obviously missing out. -Stewart Butterfield

I moved to San Francisco when I was 20 years old. I couldn't even drink yet. My friends in college thought I was so stupid for missing out on the four best years of my life. But I was so ready to start living my own life and absorb Silicon Valley culture. -Brit Morin

Pikaia is a missing link because, of all chordates, it's probably the most primitive. -Simon Conway Morris

I don't have a lot of shame. That doesn't mean I can't feel bad about the way someone reacts to me or about something I read about myself online. But I don't have a lot of guilt, no. I've always been this way. I'm missing a chip. -Chelsea Handler

In our quest to tweet, like, and trend, we have forgotten that brands can be built through advertising. Ads can generate big ideas that can never be trumped by tactics. That is the magic of an ad, and that is what is missing from many ads today. -Jerry Della Femina

I have two little children. I didn't want to be missing their childhood while I was away, busy writing about children. -Melissa Mathison

'The Leftovers' takes place three years after 2% of the population has gone missing. And it's about how that changes society. Cults form as a result, and it drastically changes home life for a lot of people, including the Garvey family, which is the family I belong to. -Margaret Qualley

When people ask what 'American Pie' is about, they're missing the point. The song isn't about the lines themselves – it's about what is between the lines. The song is about what isn't there. -Don McLean

I was sure that somewhere a grandiose carnival was going on in the sky, and I was missing it. -Eve Babitz

Spiders keep me awake at night. If I see one that's too big to get under a glass, there will be big problems. I'll spend the rest of the day feeling like I'm being terrorised by this missing spider. -Nicola Adams

It wasn't just music in the Ramones: it was an idea. It was bringing back a whole feel that was missing in rock music – it was a whole push outwards to say something new and different. -Tommy Ramone

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

I was just finishing up 'Spotlight' in Toronto – I finished it on a Tuesday and started 'True Detective' on a Friday. So I was missing rehearsals, unfortunately, which I hate and why I never like to work back-to-back. -Rachel McAdams

I think a four-year ban would effectively rule out one Olympic games – a life ban is too harsh. I think everyone deserves a second chance. If you come back from missing one Olympic games and serving a four-year ban, you are a pretty determined and reformed character. -Lynn Davies

One of the things that was missing from the 2014 election was a Contract With America type of platform. -Ron DeSantis

The administration must act promptly to ensure that the central premise of the Affordable Care Act is executable and, rather than dismissing criticism, should examine it in good faith and work to serve the needs of the people. President Obama must approach this problem like a CEO confronting a very bad product launch. -John Delaney

The RFA requires federal agencies to assess the economic impact of their regulations on small firms, and if significant, consider less burdensome alternatives. Federal agencies sometimes fail to comply at all, or simply 'check the box,' fulfilling the letter of the law, while missing the purpose of the law entirely. -Sam Graves

I was missing out on public school and going to the football games, prom or homecomings. But I've been to three World Championships… so I think it's like a win-win. -Simone Biles

I never felt I had questions or needed answers or had a part of me that was missing. -Simone Biles

I do enjoy doing pantomime at Christmas. If I didn't do it, I'd feel as though I was missing something. -Kenny Baker

When I look back on my life, I overpaid for my big successes every time. And when I tried to get a bargain, get it a little cheaper or get a better deal on it, I ended up usually either getting it and not happy I got it. Or missing it. -Jerry Jones

It's getting harder as I get more known. Even though it's my break, I couldn't really go out and get drunk – because people expect you to be training and getting up early. But I'm not bothered about missing out on normal teenage things. -Katarina Johnson-Thompson

It's not always about gold medals, I think. It has to be about development, and we are missing that in U.K. at the moment. -Lizzie Armitstead

A world championship medal on the road is something that I'm missing from my CV. -Lizzie Armitstead

Eating well is really important to me. That means having balanced meals, never missing a meal, never skipping a meal, having a balanced diet, and never doing anything extreme. -Lizzie Armitstead

I married my husband because I loved him, and I don't feel like there's anybody missing from our marriage, but when you think about this person that you love, and you think about what a wonderful thing it would be to bring another person like that into this world, I think that's the hardest part about all of it. -Aisha Tyler

It's like someone important is missing from a party because you can't imagine an Olympic gymnastics competition without Romania. -Nadia Comaneci

I told my kids, 'It doesn't matter if this person or that person in the family isn't perfect; this is what you've got. We have to work with that, and if you can't work with that, then you're just jumping into someone else's family, and there's always going to be something missing if you don't work that out.' -Cynthia Robinson

While Muslim men describe themselves as insecure in their harems, real or imagined, Westerners describe themselves as self-assured heroes with no fears of women. The tragic dimension so present in Muslim harems – fear of women and male self-doubt – is missing in the Western harem. -Fatema Mernissi

Next time I do a play, I want to go out of town. I don't like the idea of opening in New York. I don't have to do theatre, but if you're going to do it, you should do it well. These days, everything has to be up and running in five minutes. As a result, the rehearsal time is missing. -Jamey Sheridan

The trick of Afrobeats is it doesn't just move your upper body, it moves your hips as well, and I think that's what people have been missing in popular music for a while. I think that's what people need around the world. -Jidenna

I don't really watch video, but I see the replay; like when I do strike out, and I'm walking back to the dugout, I look up and see if they do show the replay of me swinging and missing. -Freddie Freeman

Grace, respect, reserve, and empathetic listening are qualities sorely missing from the public discourse now. -Meryl Streep

I look at the camera as sort of a missing link between motion picture photography and still photography. -Jeff Bridges

I've just seen that there is a really amazing perspective that we're missing by not having more women directing. -David Oyelowo

I've said the election of Obama has made the hustler less relevant. People took it in a way that I was almost dismissing what I am. And I was like, 'No, it's a good thing!' -Jay-Z

I can't write; I don't think I'm even particularly good at telling a writer what's good or what's missing. So, actually having someone who can do that is a godsend. -Stephen Frears

There was something missing. But in my world, there is never time to figure out what is, in fact, missing. -Jeff Fisher

When you lack a certain vitality in the film business, there's no hiding it. It's like you've had your limb chopped off. How do you hide the fact that you're missing an arm? -Alec Baldwin

I think that Christians who have an interest in filmmaking need to deepen their love for cinema. To be honest, that's what I think has been missing historically from the Christians who want to succeed in the Hollywood industry. -Scott Derrickson

Diverse forms of memory can have a variety of gaps. Thus it is possible for me to represent a past situation to myself and be unable to remember my inner behavior in this situation. As I transfer myself back into this situation, a surrogate for the missing memory comes into focus. -Edith Stein

When a town doesn't have a book store, it is like something is missing, and unfortunately, fewer and fewer have them. -Irvine Welsh

It's what's missing, I think, from most music – the rebellious part. That rebelliousness is part of great rock music or great literature or any great creative stuff. -Glenn Danzig

People expect to just hear something raunchy from a female – we're missing meaningful messages as women. We don't have enough stories. -Tink

I'm not trying to dog any artist or genre, but to me, there is a lot of diversity missing from the radio. I miss turning the radio on and getting punched in the soul with a great lyric. -Maren Morris

The Free Body Culture gave me a gift I might never have received had I refused to play along. It left me with an acute sense of the absurd – one I still cherish – to be there among my fellow apes, awkward and less than half-willing, aiming and missing, leaping, landing and wincing. -Lydia Millet

I don't feel the pressure and stress of having to be a comic in a club every night. I accomplished a lot of things; I did lot of things, and I don't feel like I'm missing out when I am home with my son. -Kevin Nealon

The pleasantly crude 'Hall Pass' reminds us of what's been missing from movies: Those squirm-inducing moments in comedy that produce enough discomfort that, at points, what we're watching is half a heartbeat away from a horror film. -Elvis Mitchell

Often, entrepreneurs don't build a board until they are forced to by their VCs when they raise their first financing round. This is dumb, as you are missing the opportunity to add at least one person to the team who – as a board member – can help you navigate the early process of building your company and raising that first round. -Brad Feld

People always make a lot about how I don't carry grudges. That's my religious upbringing. I went nine years without missing Sunday school. Lutheran. I can't live with hatred inside of me. That's what I learned. I ain't scared of dying, either. -Earl Weaver

Adding salt to desserts helps to balance and pronounce flavors. Almost all of my desserts have salt in them. They don't taste salty per se, but if I gave you two of the same item – one with salt and one without – side by side, you would realize something was missing. -Johnny Iuzzini

I have had the same person show up in a few cities with flowers. A lovely gentleman who gave me a picture of himself. I came home, gave it to Ian, and said, 'If I go missing, here's the guy.' -Nia Vardalos

There's a waterfall of content that you're missing out on. -Steve Chen

Earning a comfortable living and being responsible with your money is always a good thing. But, if you let that completely control your life, you're missing out on a lot of incredible experiences that money can't buy. -John Rampton

There is an actor's responsibility in presenting the emotional content of the lyrics to an audience. But whether you do that in a straightforward fashion or an ironic fashion or a blase fashion is all about opportunities, and singers are missing opportunities as artists if they don't pay attention to the lyric. -Kurt Elling

Alaskans need some certainty and clarity over how the Pebble Partnership intends to proceed. I understand the complexity of a project like this, and I appreciate the investments that have been made in Alaska already. But a reliable timeline has been missing, and I hope that the companies will provide one soon. -Lisa Murkowski

What's been missing from regions outside of Silicon Valley is a 'playbook.' In American football, a playbook contains a sports team's strategies and plays. It struck me that every region needs its own industry playbook on how to compete globally. -Steve Blank

That's the real work, being away from my loved ones, my family, my household. There's nothing that's hurt any more than being away from my little girl and missing days, but I'm lucky. -Roman Reigns

If you aren't listening, you are missing out. -Tilman J. Fertitta

Not missing games, miss one game due to injury in my career, and that even hurt me to miss that game, but I just love to get out there and compete, both ends of the ball, and I don't think I'm afraid to take the big shot. If I'm 2-for-15, I'm not afraid to take that shot, make it 3-for-16. -Klay Thompson

You have to put money in its proper perspective. The way it is positioned in the culture is like it is the most important thing. But something is missing. -Jim Brown

If rock & roll is dead and gone, man, I am missing out on it. -Johnny Van Zant

I just sort of feel like John Hughes movies are perfect, but they're missing violence. If they just had some violence, they'd be perfect. -Ryan Gosling

The Champions League is the one thing missing from my career. When I look at the history of the competition and the people that have taken part, the top, top players have all won it. For many, it is why they have been regarded as top players. -Eden Hazard

My knee bends only to a 60 degree angle. Normally, like on my right leg, my heel can touch my glute if I just pull my leg back. On my left side, there's still a big percentage missing. That has made me change my style in the ring. -Rey Mysterio

I think people generally are lost, as they keep thinking about what is going to happen and what they have done. They are not alive anymore. The art of listening is missing. In their head, they are doing something else. -Sushant Singh Rajput

When I was growing up, I thought I was getting bored of acting, so I left that. Then after a few years, I started missing it. I left my studies mid-way, and I used to give lots of auditions. -Fatima Sana Shaikh

Although I started off as a child artist, I left acting in between, as I felt that I was missing the fun of school days. But a little later, I became keen on acting again and started going for auditions. -Fatima Sana Shaikh

I'm from New Jersey. But I went to school in Los Angeles and all across the country. So, I can totally connect with missing home. -Shanice Williams

When I got to high school, I was going to do sports, but I got kicked off the volleyball team because I kept missing it for musical theater. -Shanice Williams

I love games. My favorite thing on this planet to do is to play games. And if you don't enjoy games, then you're really missing the point of what this life is. -RuPaul

We take the sense of touch for granted. Think about it: Without it, you're missing one of the basic senses that enables you to interact with the world. -Louis B. Rosenberg

I just felt something was missing from my vision of what Tycho should eventually be. It took several years of learning new recording and production techniques to get to a point where I felt I could make a record like 'Awake.' -Tycho

My advice to anybody, including myself, is if you're going through a bad period, and you just can't see the world's on your shoulders and no day is a good day, you're missing the whole point of the experience. And that's something dogs know from the moment they come bounding up to you as a puppy. -W. Bruce Cameron

My career will come full cycle one day when I play the father of a cute little kid missing teeth who spouts one-liners. -Gregory Smith

I've gone through several cycles. When I was little, I was the cute kid with missing teeth and funny one-liners. Then I moved on to be the young guy who wanted to be a grownup. -Gregory Smith

When I was in college at UCLA, I took a playwriting course. I was all set to be a writer. But I had to take this acting class as a theater arts major. I had to do this scene in a one-act comedy. I just said this line, and then… this laugh happened. I thought, 'Whoa. This is a really good feeling. What have I been missing?' -Carol Burnett

What entrepreneurs and artists have in common is that they give the world something it didn't know it was missing. -Daniel H. Pink

I'm not the only one who has ever lost somebody; I'm not the only one who was missing somebody. That's what I love about country music, that's what I love about songwriters, is being able to put out those words, those feelings. -Cole Swindell

Anyone who faults Romney or Obama or any public figure for demanding quote approval is missing the point. The journalists were no abused weaklings here. They made a bargain for access to these newsworthy figures that they thought was in their favor – they're only complaining because they got caught. -Ryan Holiday

Sometimes what I think what the news is missing is the human element, the connection – the moment that you look into a little girl's eyes or a father who has just left his family and risked everything just to try and survive. -Kat Graham

Every time I feel like something is missing from a dish, I think, 'Oh, I know, I'll add a pinch of dry ginger.' If it's not salt and it's not vinegar, it's probably missing dry ginger. -Alex Guarnaschelli

I'm always interested in something that's missing. -Clive Cussler

There's a lot of mythological stories you can tell. There's not just one. I appreciate all of those different kinds, but what I was personally missing was grand, classic, true-north hero. Pure and simple emotion, and also aiming for big time emotion, like love story as well, in a very sincere way. Like 'Superman: The Movie' had done for me. -Patty Jenkins

If you're not educated to enjoy the arts, if you're not taken to a concert, or you don't hear something beautiful, you don't know what you're missing. -Julie Andrews

It's not wrong to be skeptical. I was one who participated in the debate on Iraq and voted against the resolution because I was skeptical of the intelligence. But that was based on looking at the facts, analyzing the case in as rational and as logical way as you can, not simply concluding or dismissing facts. -Jack Reed

We are becoming so fickle and self involved. Always looking for the next best thing – especially when it comes to people. We spend hours buried in our phones trying to keep up with the social lives of people we may not even know. Envy and the fear of missing out have taken over. Yet we are all still longing for human connection. -Whitney Wolfe Herd

All of my books have an internal geometric shape, and once I've seen the shape, then the writing gets much faster and easier because I now do know where we're going, and I know what's motivating these people, why they were here, and therefore, I have some good idea how they got there, and so I can fill in the missing chunks somewhat more easily. -Diana Gabaldon

As a society, we're failing. In so many ways. Such high incarceration rates of underrepresented minorities ultimately means we're missing out on great potential from black and Latino communities. Yes, there's immense talent brewing even within the most impoverished neighborhoods. Talent is universal, but opportunity is not. -Christine Tsai

Breaking down barriers is tough. Many companies make the mistake of dismissing diversity early on, only to realize later how foundational it is to their success or failure. -Christine Tsai

That irritates me the most – missing tackles. -Eric Weddle

There's something missing in all this new new media craziness, and that is something that uses celebrity news as a way to get into a really serious analysis of our culture. -Jessica Williams

After my neurosurgery, part of my brain was missing, and I had to deal with that. It wasn't the grey matter, but it was the gooey part dead center that makes key hormones and neurotransmitters. -Mary Lou Jepsen

Obviously, it's tough – missing my parents, family in general – but I'm getting used to it. It's the life, and hopefully I'll get some time to go home maybe for a week or a bit to catch up on things. -Denis Shapovalov

I had a kind of romantic notion about being a Hollywood Errol Flynn type. Honestly, I did not get into a lot of bar brawls – but I was always willing to. About the only thing missing from my story is that I haven't had a full knock-down fight in the middle of the Polo Lounge. -Kelsey Grammer

At certain points, I was afraid there was something – a missing chink of skill – that was going to prevent me from having a movie that was financially successful. That frightened me. -Jonathan Demme

There are some people who might have better technique than me, and some may be fitter than me, but the main thing is tactics. With most players, tactics are missing. You can divide tactics into insight, trust, and daring. In the tactical area, I think I just have more than most other players. -Johan Cruyff

One thing I think is great is that if you use social media really well – in a natural, personal way – you can kind of see what's missing. You can see when you're bored of something or of someone. -Jonathan Anderson

I'm missing an index finger. -Jason Pierre-Paul

You're in there, you're having a match, and you're feeding off that crowd. That's the gasoline that fuels the match, and that's how you make your decisions. If you're not listening to that crowd when you're working, you're missing the biggest part of what working is all about. -Stone Cold Steve Austin

I want to go see Somalia because I've never been there, and I feel like I'm missing out. I want to learn that heritage; I want to learn about my culture. -Halima Aden

I was very interested in what happens to the husband when his wife goes missing, and how quickly they can be turned into heroes and villains. -Gillian Flynn

You don't normally see incredibly ugly people who've gone missing and it becomes a sensation. -Gillian Flynn

I think that the Internet is going to be one of the major forces for reducing the role of government. The one thing that's missing, but that will soon be developed, is a reliable e-cash – a method whereby on the Internet you can transfer funds from A to B without A knowing B or B knowing A. -Milton Friedman

I think playback singing has a lot to do with voice acting. I would suggest to all the youngsters to understand the character, situation, and the story behind the songs. That is when you can add soul to the rendition which, I think, is missing in today's music. -Lata Mangeshkar

In the business world, if you're not looking ahead, you're missing something. -Jared Polis

Questions matter. In business, remarkable performers are brilliant at getting to the right question: the one that speeds them to the place they need to get to and offers them the missing piece they need to find. -Robin S. Sharma

Look at Allen Ginsberg. In poems like 'Kaddish' and 'Howl,' you can hear a cantor between the lines. It's fully alive, and I think that's what's missing in modern poetry. It's too dry and cerebral. -Derek Walcott

I think theater is the strongest place to find what's missing in entertainment. Unfortunately, it pays the least. -Joe Morton

Whenever senior players are missing, its ideal for youngsters to avail of these opportunities. -Virender Sehwag

Everyone feels at times like they're missing a page or two out of the handbook that tells you how to live your life. -Simon Helberg

Going to salsa clubs may be popular, but I feel we're really missing something as a society by overlooking ballroom dancing. If only we could persuade schools to teach it or there was somewhere young people could go on a Saturday night to learn it. -Robert Rinder

Having a family is really important. And there would be something missing in my life as a woman if I didn't at least attempt to fulfil that side of me. Just for a certain period of your life, to have your sole purpose to be nurturing, feeding and protecting someone else: it's animalistic, isn't it? It's beautiful. -Lara Pulver

When I'm not writing, I feel an awareness that something's missing. If I go a long time, it becomes worse. I become depressed. There's something vital that's not happening. -Jennifer Egan

Beginning in middle school, the era of wide-margined, Bible-paged anthologies, short stories develop unpromising associations – and these associations often linger through college, when stories become the things distributed in Xeroxes missing entire pages of line-endings. -Ben Dolnick

The challenge is always around culture. I think that's often underestimated because people focus on the substance and the practical; soft steps go missing. -Rajeev Suri

In my experience, what is often missing between intent and action is the knowledge and the means to actually change the way we do business or make consumer decisions. -Arancha Gonzalez

I'm disturbed by the words missing from the Trump campaign: Liberty, justice, freedom, and tolerance. -Ron Chernow

We must listen to the concerns of our people without dismissing them. When people see something wrong, there is something wrong. When our people see corruption, it means there is corruption. When our people see that their resources are being stolen by certain people, it means this is happening, and we should listen. -Cyril Ramaphosa

I ran over 10 years without missing a day, averaging close to 15 miles. I loved being able to run a long distance and get that feeling of strength and exhilaration from being in good shape. There was a meditative quality about it. Almost effortlessness. That's a special feeling. -Mark Parker

FOMO (fear of missing out) is the enemy of valuing your own time. -Andrew Yang

The fact that 'Mom' is not joke, joke, joke – and is investing in these characters and their lives, things that really happen to people – I think it's resonating, and that's why people are tuning into it and not just dismissing it as a multi-cam sitcom. -Allison Janney

I have learned that if I only see and deeply appreciate one side of an argument, it means I am probably missing something important. -Joe Lonsdale

Starting a company in San Francisco when we did usually meant it was destined to be a data-driven tech company. But that didn't seem to fully encompass what we wanted with Airbnb. When we tried looking through a tech lens, it didn't work. The humanity was missing. -Joe Gebbia

Hip-hop is not about pretense. You can be missing an eye; you can have an ice-cream cone in your face; you can run around with Bantu knots; you can decide to wear gold, all everything. It's not about how you look – it's about what you say. It's about what message you're getting across. -Brian Tyree Henry

When folks decide they love any institution more than the individual souls inside them, they're missing the mark. -Glennon Doyle Melton

Good writing is often about trying to investigate something you feel is missing and trying to put it back. -Abi Morgan

I was missing the main weight-bearing bone in both legs. And the left leg, I didn't have a full knee. It was a floating knee. I had six toes. My hands were webbed, and I also have one kidney. I don't have a full bicep on my right side. Thank God my hair didn't get ruined. -Oksana Masters

My goal is always to help other women with programs that help them live better lives, especially is areas where health care is missing. Both of my parents are from Ghana, where there is a need for health care in the smaller villages. -Philomena Kwao

I think the biggest sacrifice I had to make was giving up time and missing out on things. Not going to college and getting the college experience. Or missing important holidays. All my time was spent in the studio. -Poo Bear

I see some people stay in one place because it's convenient or it's comfortable. But they're missing out on their passion. -Arianna Huffington

Men think of women as people who just augment their experience. Women's value isn't a given.

A lot of stupid dudes are really missing out on a much more interesting experience of life. -Noel Wells

A lot of people were getting million-dollar deals from music I felt was trash, because their videos were going viral. I wanted to put out music that had soul, because that's what was missing. -Kali Uchis

I can be a friend from a million miles away. I can play basketball in China. The only thing I can't do is be a father. I missed my kids' first basketball game. I missed birthdays. I can talk to you from a million miles away, but I was missing the dad part of life. -Michael Beasley

There are so many families who do not come up in a traditional household. African Americans, Latins, and, I'm sure, whites as well, but there are a lot of men missing in African American communities and in Latin communities. -Salim Akil

Sugar makes me feel crazy – like, makes my body hurt kind of a thing. I don't really eat fruit because it has a lot of sugar. I try not to eat a lot of red meat, but every now and again, I feel like I need iron or something – something that I'm missing. -SZA

For me, you look at the beginning of his career, the man couldn't even make weight. That's how I found out about Henry Cejudo to begin with. 'Oh, Henry Cejudo misses weight again.' I'm like, who's this guy who keeps missing weight. When the UFC signed him, I was like, 'Great, you guys signed another guy who can't make 125.' -Demetrious Johnson

Emotions don't disrupt our rational thinking but guide and inform it. But they are missing from our digital experience. Your smartphone knows who you are and where you are, but it doesn't know how you feel. We aim to fix that. -Rana el Kaliouby

There are always ridiculous things on television or on the Internet that make people go, 'Did you see that?' That could be anything from a clip from the 'Real Housewives' to someone jumping off their roof and missing the pool to a zillion other things. -Joel McHale

Neptune's unusual behavior is showing us that though we can make great models of planetary atmospheric circulation, there may be key pieces missing. -Heidi Hammel

Most car advertising assumes that people have IQs that are missing a digit. -Sergio Marchionne

When you lose someone that's really important to you, I feel like it's something that never really goes away. It's almost learning how to live with an empty feeling; it's weird. Something's always missing, but you kind of get used to it. -Amber Mark

We scientists have an obsession with unification, a grand synthesis. And dark matter is an irritating missing piece. -Priyamvada Natarajan

It really pisses me off when people look at women who are older and are not in a relationship as somehow sad or missing something, because they certainly don't look at men that way. -Miriam Shor

You always know. You have basic needs, and when they aren't met, your body sends signals. Hunger, loneliness, exhaustion, thirst, and fear are all signals that something is missing, and you need to act on it now. -Mel Robbins

Of the Queen tributes, some of them are very funny, and some of them are really not funny at all. The terrible ones are cheesy and pantolike, more about dressing up in a Brian May wig and a Freddie Mercury moustache, and what they're missing out is the fact that the music is quite complicated and actually not easy to perform. -Roger Taylor

Songs, a while ago, became the medium through which I process most of the information that I receive and feel. But I go back and forth about whether this is all of life or whether you're missing something important in living and whether or not, as a humanist, you're abnegating a certain responsibility if this – this art – is just where you are. -David Longstreth

It's a very funny topic, missing weight and getting title shots. I think the punishments should be more severe, but I don't know. -Robert Whittaker

I found a 'lost' manuscript called the Book of Soyga that had once belonged to Queen Elizabeth I's court astrologer, John Dee, in Oxford's Bodleian Library.

Filming 'It's Not Rocket Science' has made me realise I'm missing the part of my brain that warns me about danger because – even though the tasks are terrifying – I find it really exciting. -Rachel Riley

All the family gatherings, I'm too tired, or I can't because it conflicts with work… I have seven grandkids. I've been missing recitals and graduations. To me, it's just not worth it. There is a better way to live life. -Damon Wayans

If we didn't have a sustainable agriculture industry, who would be paying the then-missing taxes to support our defence, police, roads, airports, elderly, parks, public sporting facilities and much more? -Gina Rinehart

When I put my head in my hands after missing a chance, that annoys the coaches a little. -Olivier Giroud

While wrestling in college as a junior, it came to a point where wrestling just wasn't enough for me anymore. I love wrestling, but I felt like I was missing something, and so the striking part about MMA, the boxing and kickboxing, was what got me really interested in MMA. -Cain Velasquez

I could have played in a lot of Monday qualifiers for PGA Tour events, which would have been fine as long as I was getting through. But Monday qualifiers can also be depressing if you are missing out time and again. -Brooks Koepka

When I was a player, all the pressures I felt created a lot of anxiety in me. I didn't know how to manage that on my own. I think I was missing someone – a manager, no doubt – who could teach me to control my emotions. -Unai Emery

I have two younger sisters, and during those first four years when I was in Argentina, I wasn't around to see them grow up. It was very hard for all of us because missing out on that period and not seeing them grow up was tough for me. -Radamel Falcao

I think football saves many people. It can give you a life of luxury, but people don't see all the effort that goes in behind the scenes. That might mean not seeing your family or missing your mother's birthday; many players are so focused that they miss the birth of their children. -Alexis Sanchez

I realized that there are many people who are very good students, but they think of themselves as bad students. At the end of the day, what they are really missing is way to understand where their gaps are and a way to address those gaps. -Sal Khan

Just as computer science is missing from our school system, so is science fiction. -Sal Khan

What joy and adventure the youngsters of today are missing as they sit indoors mucking about with computer games and videos! -Brian Clough

When I was thirteen years old, and we had just moved to Germany, I definitely felt I was missing out on normal teenage life.

It's a bitter thing to have one or more defenders missing. -Manuel Neuer

You can get caught up in making and missing shots, but the game is so much more. -Rajon Rondo

When you go into a game, and there's something that was drawn up the way it was supposed to be drawn up, and you missed the throw or the catch, as a receiver, it's something where you feel bad about that. You can always regret just missing it, but as a football player, you have to move on to the next play. -Patrick Mahomes

My wife was the part of me that was missing. And I got that whole family that came along with her in the deal. It's an extended family, and they're very close, and it's a dynamic that's never been around me before. -Joe Walsh

The World Cup is the World Cup, and I'm sad I won't play in it; that's my only regret. But to play a friendly with my national team, I did it many times, so it's not something I'm missing. -Samir Nasri

One of the things that we're missing from our political dialogue right now is the idea that the United States is a home. It is more than an accounting sheet. It is more than the sum of its G.D.P., its total tax collections, or its total outlays. America is a family. -Stephen Miller

Rather than missing home when I'm on tour, I miss tour when I'm at home. -Chris Rea

We're so obsessed with, 'Is Michael Cohen going to jail or not? Is Rod Rosenstein going to be fired? What did Trump tweet today? Did he call the press an enemy of the state?' We're so focused on that, we're missing just the tremendous damage Trump is doing to the decency and moral character of this country. -Daniel Pfeiffer

Since I was 18, I have swum for 50 minutes every day, missing less than one day a year except for a two-week stint when I was training as a cosmonaut in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, in March 2009. -Esther Dyson

I remember watching David Beckham scoring that free-kick at Old Trafford to take England to a World Cup. Things like that stick with you. I was at Southsea, waiting to board a hovercraft for the Isle of Wight. We ended up missing it because we were more interested in watching the big screen. -Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

What am I missing to be the best in the world? Honestly, nothing in terms of quality, just consistency, and that's not arrogance. -Memphis Depay

Ninety percent of my material is made on stage, but I feel like you're missing something by abandoning sitting down to write entirely. -Tom Segura

I remember, in 2008, and we won the Champions League and the Premier League, and we were having our photos taken with the trophies, and someone said to me, 'Patrice, you don't look happy.' I said, 'It's because we are missing the FA Cup.' -Patrice Evra

I've always been comfortable being the first person at a party, metaphorically speaking – being the first person on the dance floor, saying, 'This is where it's happening, people, and if you don't think so, that's cool, but I think you're missing out.' That's my general philosophy, and it's served me pretty well. -Asia Kate Dillon

With any career you're in, there's always a life outside of your career, and that's one thing when you're on the road 300 days of the year, you start missing your family, you miss your friends, you miss all the things you enjoy in life like going to the movies, museums. -Brie Bella

We always try to make every song we do sound like a track. It's vocal, but we want it to be really full so no one really can even know if it's a cappella. It's not like it's missing anything, per se. -Kirstin Maldonado

All in all, 18 individuals from my family are missing, including my six brothers and my mother, my brothers' wives, my nephews and nieces. -Nadia Murad

The family is something you are always missing, but it has to be like this. It is not easy for any manager to be with your family, in your house, and working at your nearest club. So you have to travel. -Rafael Benitez

What I've been missing in my career is 30 back-to-back games and getting a good run of form and confidence. -Jack Rodwell

I thought after that fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao, if this was supposed to be fight of the decade, then people must be missing me a lot more. -Naseem Hamed

The one thing I learned early on as a football player is people have their opinions, and I can't change them. But I can show them what they're missing. -Deshaun Watson

When I was about 9, my brother, who's six years older than me, started getting guitar lessons, and I wouldn't say that it inspired me to pick up an instrument: it was more me being like, 'Well, if he's getting guitar lessons, then so am I. I'm not missing out,' type of thing. -Lewis Capaldi

My parents and I always look at movies and just think, 'What's missing?' from the plot to the people of color or diversity in general. -Marsai Martin

Executives in Hollywood are missing a lot because they don't want to watch other cultures. -Eugenio Derbez

In 2013, I changed to left-hand low, or cross-handed. And it's helped a lot. At the time, the reason I switched was just a lot of inconsistency with putting. I was either making a lot of putts, or I was missing a lot of putts. -Tony Finau

I think the game of football, from a commentating standpoint, is missing something. I think it should be a celebration, and I think it should be enjoyable, and I'm trying to make it that way. -Pat McAfee

Both 'Saturday Church' and 'Pose' are incredible because they demonstrate something essential about survival. When you get pushed hard enough by certain circumstances, your survival mechanism kicks in, and you grow into the things that you need or are missing in your life. -Indya Moore
