I've played different nationalities, and everything from vulnerable to strong to crooked to demented. It just increases your possibilities of work because, if people know you can do just about anything, then you're going to get more offers. That's what I want to do. -Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

Campaign boot camp started as an opportunity to work in a grassroots way with people who were running for Congress. Colleagues on the Democratic National Committee were batting around different possibilities. I said, 'We should have boot camps.' -Christine Pelosi

Like many other scientists who hold the Catholic faith, I see the Creator's plan and purpose fulfilled in our universe. I see a planet bursting with evolutionary possibilities, a continuing creation in which the Divine providence is manifest in every living thing. I see a science that tells us there is indeed a design to life. -Kenneth R. Miller

If I'm not clear with the character, I can't do anything with it. But once I get that character, the possibilities are endless. When you have such a defined character, I feel like I can actually read the phone book and make it funny. -Eliza Coupe

My father never kissed me, hugged me or told me that he loved me. As my only living parent, he became the filter through which I saw myself, the possibilities for my life, the world and all men. He was a conflicted and dark filter. -Iyanla Vanzant

I'm open for possibilities. I'm open for choices. I always welcome new ideas. I'm always eager to learn. I'm never going to close my mind from learning. -Cesar Millan

Poetry is often the art of overhearing yourself say things you didn't know you knew. It is a learned skill to force yourself to articulate your life, your present world or your possibilities for the future. -David Whyte

There is always tension between the possibilities we aspire to and our wounded memories and past mistakes. -Sean Brady

Our economy is built upon convergent thinkers, people that execute things, get them done. But artists and designers are divergent thinkers: they expand the horizon of possibilities. -John Maeda

To be hopeful means to be uncertain about the future, to be tender toward possibilities, to be dedicated to change all the way down to the bottom of your heart. -Rebecca Solnit

We have responsibilities for others, not just across space but across time. We have responsibilities to people who came before us. They left us a world of institutions, ideas or possibilities for which we, in turn, owe them something. One of the things we owe them is not to squander them. -Tony Judt

The fundamental aspect of video is not the image, even though you can stand in amazement at what can be done electronically, how images can be manipulated and the really extraordinary creative possibilities. For me the essential basis of video is the movement – something that exists at the moment and changes in the next moment. -Bill Viola

Everybody has fallen down or been disappointed in love. Where you truly shine is when you get back up. Use it as a learning experience and believe in all of the possibilities. -Sherry Argov

We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize. -Thich Nhat Hanh

I plan on continuing to explore all the possibilities of technology, and then finally film and television and movies. Embrace it. -MC Hammer

The possibilities are endless now, with performing, getting your music online, getting your own website and getting your music out there. I think that's very cool and amazing. -Dave Gahan

With any character I have played, there's infinite possibilities for how they might behave, depending on who they are talking to or how they react to things. -Viggo Mortensen

A film writer is very much like a party girl. While you're good-looking and still unlined, the possibilities seem endless. But your appeal doesn't last long and you're quickly discarded. -James Salter

Theater isn't there to provide answers. Only possibilities. I just ask the questions. But I believe hope comes from the fact that there is a potential for redemption. At the core, that's what matters in the theater I'm attracted to. Do we dare to hope? Do we allow ourselves to hope? -Joe Mantello

Stage acting is for me the basic form of acting. If you make films all the time, you have so few possibilities to rehearse. And it's important to rehearse, because it gives you the possibility to try things which are not good! -Erland Josephson

If everyone worked with wide-angle lenses, I'd shoot all my films in 75mm, because I believe very strongly in the possibilities of the 75mm. -Orson Welles

I'm basically a dinosaur. I don't use e-mail. But I do recognize the importance of science and the resulting possibilities. -Bernard Marcus

If your mind is empty, it is ready for anything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities; in the expert's mind there are few. -Shunryu Suzuki

I don't think about what I can't do or what I shouldn't be doing. I just think there are endless possibilities musically, really. -Paul Weller

There was a time in my 40s where I thought, oh, it's all over – not just work, but I'm never going to feel young again, I'm always going to feel like I know what's going to happen, I'll know what to expect. Looking back I don't know if that was a midlife crisis, I don't know – but I don't feel that now. There's possibilities. It gets better. -Paul Weller

I have never been a fan of science fiction. For me, fiction has to explore the combinatorial possibilities of people interacting under the constraints imposed by our biology and history. When an author is free to suspend the constraints, it's tennis without a net. -Steven Pinker

A trumpet sounds pretty much like a trumpet, and that's true of a lot instruments; pianos sound like pianos, but there's something about the guitar – the range of possibilities is much broader. -The Edge

I wanted to become an artist because it meant endless possibilities. Art was a way of reinventing myself. -Sam Taylor-Johnson

Being Canadian and from Winnipeg, I have the spirit of a dreamer because of the cold, and being in the basement thinking of possibilities of where else I can be in the world, in a good way! -Sarah Carter

The possibilities for creation and insight are endless. We're constantly collecting more data, and it's starting to be very relevant to our lives. -Aaron Koblin

If you're willing to take risks, Twitter is a vast amusement park of interesting life possibilities. -Amanda Palmer

There are certain artworks that I respond to, artists that I respond to. It's an intellectual reaction but it's also a biological reaction. And the excitement that the work can generate – how it makes you feel about not only your intellectual possibilities but your physical possibilities in this world. How it feels to be alive! -Jeff Koons

I always like to believe that my work is about the expansion of the possibilities of the viewer. So if you have a sense of a heightened situation where there's an excitement, a physical excitement and an intellectual stimulation, there's just this sense of expansion. Because that's where the art happens. Inside the viewer. -Jeff Koons

Art's a very metaphysical activity. It's something that enriches the parameters of your life, the possibilities of being, and you touch transcendence and you change your life. And you want to change the life of others, too. That's why people are involved with art. -Jeff Koons

People don't realize how much control they do have. The more you can show them this control, the easier it is to tap back into the creative side of the brain that allows people to see possibilities and options. -Chip Conley

Balancing hopes, desires and an appreciating of the possibilities with a clear-eyed assessment of the limitations: that is the art of choosing. -Sheena Iyengar

Chaos does not mean total disorder. Chaos means a multiplicity of possibilities. Chaos is from the ancient Greek words that means a thing that is birthed from the void. And it was about that which is possible, not about disorder. -Jok Church

Transportation is the center of the world! It is the glue of our daily lives. When it goes well, we don't see it. When it goes wrong, it negatively colors our day, makes us feel angry and impotent, curtails our possibilities. -Robin Chase

Writing is not for me. I completely lose my sense of humor when I write. I become extremely pathetic, very sensational. Images give me possibilities that I don't have with words. -Marjane Satrapi

I think there are two aspects to smart environments. One is information embedded in places and things. The other is location awareness, so that devices we carry around know where we are. When you combine those two, you get a lot of possibilities. -Howard Rheingold

Advances in technology have opened up possibilities in the cultural realm throughout history. I'm intrigued by developments in technology – as an artist it gives me a new palette to explore. -Janet Echelman

I think science fiction helps us think about possibilities, to speculate – it helps us look at our society from a different perspective. It lets us look at our mores, using science as the backdrop, as the game changer. -Mae Jemison

What we find is that if you have a goal that is very, very far out, and you approach it in little steps, you start to get there faster. Your mind opens up to the possibilities. -Mae Jemison

Science works because the phenomenon being described can be relied on to remain the same. Even in quantum physics, where phenomena are changed by observation, the way in which observation interferes is regular and falls within a limited range of possibilities. Human culture, however, has the nasty habit of never staying the same for very long. -Julian Baggini

'Donnie Darko' was my first audition ever! It opened my eyes to the possibilities within camera work. -Jolene Purdy

If something comes that it is so extreme that you have difficulty thinking of it as a good thing, don't think of it as a good thing and kid yourself. To the extent that you can, don't label it a bad thing. Refusing to label something a bad thing opens you up to possibilities you would not have even considered otherwise. -Srikumar Rao

The world is not made up of particles and waves and beams of light with a definite existence. Instead, the world works in a much more exploratory way. It is aware of all the possibilities at once and trying them out all the time. That is a hard thing to picture. -Neil Turok

Concern yourself more with accepting responsibility than with assigning blame. Let the possibilities inspire you more than the obstacles discourage you. -Ralph Marston

Take your mind off the problems for a moment, and focus on the positive possibilities. Consider how very much you are able to do. -Ralph Marston

If you so choose, even the unexpected setbacks can bring new and positive possibilities. If you so choose, you can find value and fulfillment in every circumstance. -Ralph Marston

I believe in God, which means I am open to some absurd possibilities. But I understand the power of that faith, and I understand the metaphor of that belief. -Reza Aslan

It's not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities. -Kristin Armstrong

I think the reality-show format is brilliant, has endless possibilities. It's documentary! But unfortunately, it's rarely executed well. So it becomes just a scripted show, but without actors. -Justin Kirk

I've always loved the power of stories to transport me to another world, to imagine extraordinary possibilities, to experience things I may not have access to in my regular life – like being a superhero! Also, I would always put on shows for my family and the neighbors; I guess I was an actor before I even knew it. -Kandyse McClure

I love the science-fiction genre because there's always so many endless possibilities! It's a limitless genre and can be fun playing around with otherworldly ideas. -Laura Mennell

Communications technology changes possibilities for communication, but that doesn't mean it changes the inherited structure of the brain. So you may think that you're addicted to online reading, but as soon as it isn't available anymore, your brain will pretty immediately adjust to other forms of reading. It's a habit like all habits. -Margaret Atwood

The field of the novel is very rich. If you're a composer, you're well aware of the history of composition, and you are trying to make your music part of that history. You're not ahistorical. In the same way, I think, if you write now, you are writing in the historical context of what the novel has been and what possibilities it has revealed. -Salman Rushdie

I've never had a grand plan. I've only just tried to keep open to many different possibilities, have fun and work with people who are passionate about what they do. -Steve Buscemi

When I play supernatural characters in 'Ghost Rider' or 'City Of Angels,' the possibilities are limitless. The possibilities are endless, you can do so much with that. -Nicolas Cage

I think that Michael Jackson, just as an entertainer, as a figure who embodies the contradictions of black identity and the possibilities of R&B music in the '70s and '80s, will continue to be one of the most recognized and formidable human beings that we've ever produced in our tradition. -Michael Eric Dyson

Michael Jackson fundamentally altered the terms of the debate about African American music. Remember, he was a chocolate, cherubic-faced genius with an African American halo. He had an Afro halo. He was a kid who was capable of embodying all of the high possibilities and the deep griefs that besieged the African American psyche. -Michael Eric Dyson

I spent two years figuring out how I could turn it into something that would satisfy me as a musician but also make some kind of cross-cultural link. I feel that I kind of at least touched on the possibilities of cross-cultural music, but it is a lifetime's work, and I don't profess to be anything other than a novice at it. -Damon Albarn

The Internet opens up a whole new range of possibilities in a wide range of areas. -Herbie Hancock

How is it possible for someone who believes that the world was created in six days to have a rational conversation with me, who doesn't believe that, about other possibilities? -Paul Auster

What's interesting about science is that we're constantly discovering new things about the universe, about ourselves, about our bodies, about diseases, about the possibilities of the future. It's amazing. Science is one of the coolest things about being a human being – without a doubt. -Joe Rogan

I always remind myself that the world is bigger than Hollywood, because I need to. Being Canadian and from Winnipeg, I have the spirit of a dreamer because of the cold, and being in the basement thinking of possibilities of where else I can be in the world, in a good way! -Sarah Carter

Seriously, I wanted to be an artist because I saw that it meant endless possibilities. I came from a badly managed family background, so art was a way of reinventing myself. -Sam Taylor-Johnson

My representation overseas can't stand me doing theatre because it takes me out of action. But it's what I want to do. If it means passing up other possibilities, them's the breaks. -David Wenham

I don't think about what I can't do or what I shouldn't be doing. I just think there are endless possibilities musically, really. And I'm very, very open to experimenting with different people and trying to find different methods of writing and making music. -Paul Weller

Reading is an act of civilization; it's one of the greatest acts of civilization because it takes the free raw material of the mind and builds castles of possibilities. -Ben Okri

There is a correlation between economic inequality and personal violence. The explanation for the correlation isn't completely clear; there are a number of possibilities. -Steven Pinker

When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something good for people, to help humanity free itself from its hang-ups. -John Coltrane

Classical – perhaps I should say 'orchestral' – music is so digital, so cut up, rhythmically, pitchwise and in terms of the roles of the musicians. It's all in little boxes. The reason you get child prodigies in chess, arithmetic, and classical composition is that they are all worlds of discontinuous, parceled-up possibilities. -Brian Eno

It's hard to bury your head in Los Angeles. People come up to you and say, 'Hey, I saw your picture on a bus.' It's tricky: You're excited by the possibilities, but you don't want to get too crazy. -Chelsea Peretti

Jesus represents the possibilities of a new dimension of existence that transcends all the boundaries that restrict us from opening ourselves to God and allowing this source of love to flow through us. -John Shelby Spong

Scientists and philosophers tend to treat knowledge, imagination and love as if they were all very separate parts of human nature. But when it comes to children, all three are deeply entwined. Children learn the truth by imagining all the ways the world could be, and testing those possibilities. -Alison Gopnik

There are so many possibilities of life out there that an alien doesn't have to have green, long tentacles. They can be very similar to us. -Matt Lanter

Rap has so many possibilities that need to be explored. There are different factions of rap, but some are in a rut. Rap doesn't have to be about boosting egos and grabbing your crotch and dissing women. There's a way to make political and social issues interesting and entertaining to the young rap audience. -Michael Franti

I am kept awake by the list of possibilities for shooting more photos and deciding what I must prioritise next. -Martin Parr

Inspiration is the greatest gift because it opens your life to many new possibilities. Each day becomes more meaningful, and your life is enhanced when your actions are guided by what inspires you. -Bernie Siegel

Global sports tournaments have a range of benefits that go far beyond the games themselves. They can transform the image of a country or a region. They bring people together and reveal new possibilities to a nation's youth. -Richard Attias

I believe we should celebrate new possibilities of combining the printed codex with electronic technology… The information ecology is getting richer, not thinner. -Robert Darnton

Once you make decisions, you can't go back, but in photography, that process can continue. With film, you have to eliminate all the possibilities and make the one possibility work the best for you, so you have to become very creative with the direction you've chosen. -Anton Corbijn

My favourite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity. I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities. -Mario Testino

It is pure mythology that women cannot perform as well as men in science, engineering and mathematics. In my experience, the opposite is true: Women are often more adept and patient at untangling complex problems, multitasking, seeing the possibilities in new solutions and winning team support for collaborative action. -Weili Dai

The person who dumps garbage into your mind will do you considerably more harm than the person who dumps garbage on your floor, because each load of mind garbage negatively impacts your possibilities and lowers your expectations. -Zig Ziglar

Sci-Fi is the genre that explored both possibilities: the end of our existential crisis and the end of our existence. My novel, 'The 5th Wave,' explores the latter scenario, because, frankly, I believe it represents the likeliest outcome of an extraterrestrial encounter. In short, if they're out there, we better hope they never find us. -Rick Yancey

In abstract painting, I worried about the limited range of possibilities that, as time went on, became increasingly important to me. I wanted to express or deal with differences that an all-over paint and canvas 'presence' neutralized. -Richard Diebenkorn

We were in Philadelphia when Manager Pat shifted me from third to short, and right off the bat, I knew I had found my dish. Footwork was more a part of the new position than it had been at third. I suddenly felt I had sprouted wings. A world of new possibilities opened for me. -Bobby Wallace

We are gods. Our tools make us gods. In symbiosis with our technology, our powers are expanding exponentially and so, too, our possibilities. -Jason Silva

As technology continues to increase our possibilities, what we're seeing is a shrinking of the lag time between what we dream about and what we create. -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

When you are in a growth company, you have to really open people's eyes to the bigger possibilities so they think differently. Once they understand how to define success and what their role is in success, they make better decisions, and you can push decision-making down. -Dan Rosensweig

The past, like the future, is indefinite and exists only as a spectrum of possibilities. -Stephen Hawking

Cynicism stems from disappointment. Cynical and faithless people were not always like that. They were filled with possibilities and hope as kids. But they tried and perhaps failed. -Robin S. Sharma

In the end, the women can be very rebellious, and very capable and all of that, but if she depends on a man economically, she has few possibilities. -Subcomandante Marcos

Hope is the magic carpet that transports us from the present moment into the realm of infinite possibilities. -H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

President Obama is the best-known politician to be exploring the possibilities of new technologies to converse with the people. Others must follow his lead and innovate. It is inevitable. -Eduardo Paes

I don't know much about Britain. I've been working overseas for most of my adult life. So I'd like to see what sort of problems there really are here. It's a question of asking, 'Where are we going, how purposeful are we?' And see if there's anything that can be done to find possibilities for change. -Rory Stewart

I write for children because I am interested in fantasy and the possibilities for experience of all kinds before the time of compromise. I believe that children are far more perceptive and wise than American books give them credit for being. -Natalie Babbitt

In my teaching, I try to expose my students to the widest range of aesthetic possibilities, so I'll offer them stories from Anton Chekhov to Denis Johnson, from Flannery O'Connor to A.M. Homes, and perhaps investigating all that strange variation of beauty has rubbed off on me. Or perhaps that's why I enjoy teaching literature. -Chang-Rae Lee

I don't ever want to lose that mind-set where you've got to be able to realize different ideas-slash-fantasies-slash-possibilities in your life. -Charlie Trotter

The possibilities are infinite with new writing; every time you open a new script, there's no limit to what it might contain. -Tom Stoppard

Dig into life with wild roving abandon, opening your mind to the delicious possibilities that perplex the mind, entice the heart, and excite the spirit. -Maximillian Degenerez

The whole point of film for me is that it's such a joy. It's such a wonder. The possibilities are literally endless in terms of what you can creatively do. -Brendan Gleeson

In improvising, you've got your scale; you've got the notes that are going to sound good with other notes, the intervals that are going to sound good. But you've also got all the chromatic possibilities, the possibilities of sounding dissident, of being unexpected. -Eleanor Catton

The definition of an 'operating system' is bound to evolve with customer demands and technological possibilities. -Virginia Postrel

When I first went to places where people were suffering from war and persecution, I felt ashamed of my feelings of sadness. I could see more possibilities in my life. -Angelina Jolie

Film is the only language I speak, and I have been lucky to be involved in some great stories. You don't want to preach to people, but you want them to think about why things are the way they are, the history that is there as well as the possibilities. -Clark Johnson

Fiction is an elemental force, which has the power to shape reality in its own image – or images, I should say – because reality, like light, exists not only as a single point or particle, but also as an array of possibilities. -Ruth Ozeki

An ellipsis is a giant ocean of possibilities. -Jami Attenberg

It is rare that you read scripts that genuinely move you and make you feel that, regardless of the commercial possibilities, you have to make the film. -Eric Fellner

There is a whole aspect of freedom to recording at home that you don't get in a studio. The possibilities are infinite, and there is no reason not to explore them. -Jeff Mangum

Once we're willing to confront our emotional suffering, we begin making choices based on attraction instead of aversion, love instead of fear. Where we used to think about what was 'safe,' we now become interested in doing what seems right or fun or meaningful or ripe with possibilities. -Martha Beck

I distinctly remember the vivacious optimism that inundated the United States when the Soviet Union imploded in the early 1990s. This was not glee generated by the doom of an implacable enemy, but thrill germinated by the real possibilities that the future held for freedom. -Eskinder Nega

The great thing about doing a series about the Broadway community is that the possibilities are endless. -Megan Hilty

'Minecraft' opens up a world of limitless possibilities, driven by the player and created by the fans who love it. -Rob Manuel

If people tell you it's impossible, it's an even better reason to want to do it. People have a tendency to see the problem rather than the final result. If you treat the problems as possibilities, life will start to dance with you in the most amazing ways. -Martin Villeneuve

That's one of my problems is that there are so many songs to sing that I sort of get indecisive about what I want to do in a show – because there are so many possibilities! There are so many great songs out there. -Alison Elliott

I sometimes start keeping a journal about the writing process itself. Particularly when I get the ideas, and I am trying to brood over the chaos phase. In writing a novel, you really have to brood over a lot of chaos of ideas and possibilities. -Sue Monk Kidd

The characters that aren't what they seem to be or women who are stronger than people give them credit for or characters you underestimate, I always think are really interesting because there are so many possibilities with them. -Valorie Curry

There seems to be no limit to the exciting possibilities that come from combining technical innovations, the Internet, and social media. -Mohamed El-Erian

If you believe, like I do, that the world is abundant with possibilities, then we need to make sure we build capacity so that everybody is successful or can be successful in the pursuit of their dreams – not the dreams of someone from government, but their own dreams. -Jeb Bush

I can think of no other writer who so thoroughly embodies the Jamesian spirit as Alison Lurie. Like him she can excavate all the possibilities of a theme. Like his, her books seem long, unbroken threads, seamless progressions of effects. -Edmund White

I have a very, very good life. I'm grateful for all of my friends, my family and the life that I have, and the possibilities in my future. -Raquel Welch

To have my mind racing and my heart beating fast over glorious possibilities is very close to the summit of life experience for me. -John Ortberg

I consider my job as a screenwriter to pack a script with possibilities and ideas – to create a feast for the filmmaker to pick from. -Jonathan Nolan

Children have limited power to shape their own lives, but when they can experiment with possibilities through books, their optimism can be recharged and kept alive. -Morris Gleitzman

Mainstream animated movies are dumbed-down and sanitised: they make the world in their own image rather than exploring the limitless possibilities that are out there. -Nick Park

If we aim to act in harmony with the laws of Good, we rise above all other laws and become a law unto ourselves; co-workers with God and helpers in nature. Ours is the privilege, ours the loss, if we fail to live up to our highest possibilities. -Max Heindel

Growing up in a small town gives you two things: a sense of place and a feeling of self-consciousness – self-consciousness about one's education and exposure, both of which tend to be limited. On the other hand, limited possibilities also mean creating your own options. -E. L. Konigsburg

To me, a book is a book. A novel is a novel, and you have hundreds of possibilities, options, and they may all be fine. Charles Dickens or Ingeborg Bachmann, Claude Simon or later writers. The one and only condition is that it has to be good: it has to have quality, substance, atmosphere. -Per Petterson

We can change who we are. We can improve ourselves in various ways, and we can give ourselves possibilities. -James Heckman

I like to erase lines between categories. Why separate cookbook writing from writing, healthy from good tasting? I want to be open to possibilities. -Crescent Dragonwagon

It is the closest instrument to the human voice, and the things you can do on the cello… there are endless possibilities. -Stjepan Hauser

People don't think of cello as a rock instrument, really, and we want people to know all the possibilities that the cello can offer. -Luka Sulic

It has endless possibilities, and but what we do with our arrangements, we move the borders of cello playing and discover new ways of new techniques of cello playing. -Luka Sulic

We wanted to make a powerful cello sound in order to show to the world the possibilities of the cello and to use it in a different way than the classical way they are used to. We wanted to play something exciting, something crazy, something to draw younger generations to this great instrument. -Luka Sulic

Don't wait for someone to call you up. You can do anything. You have all the possibilities in the world. -Luka Sulic

Travel for me is all about transformation, and I'm fascinated by those people who really do come back from a trip unrecognizable to themselves and perhaps open to the same possibilities they'd have written off not a month before. -Pico Iyer

Mr. Bergman had a great imagination and saw the possibilities within every one of his actors, and he gave us great challenges. It was very inspiring. -Max von Sydow

I've listened to music all my life. I've always felt that music tells more stories sometimes than films, with more possibilities. Every time you listen to them, songs bring different images and moods – depending on where you are in your life, you can listen to a song, and it means something different. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

For a brief time in the 1850s, the telegraph companies of England and the United States thought that they could (and should) preserve every message that passed through their wires. Millions of telegrams – in fireproof safes. Imagine the possibilities for history! -James Gleick

We started MakerBot in 2009 and made a conscious decision to educate people with the possibilities they could do with 3D printing and share with people what is possible. -Bre Pettis

I'm somebody who explores extraordinary possibilities, not ordinary ones. -Graham Hancock

When we really start searching for the truth in stories, we can find it everywhere, not just in sincere confessions but in the deliberate lies and imagined possibilities, the magic and fantasy, and all the other unreal elements that go into the concoction of identity. -Joanna Scott

It wasn't until I started to read short stories – by people like Alice Munro, Mavis Gallant, John Updike… Eudora Welty – that I became excited about the possibilities of writing. -Carol Windley

I feel that heterosexual marriage is the more excellent way, and it surely is approved holy by the Holy Bible, and it holds so many more possibilities: the possibilities of having children of both the mother and father, the male and the female. -Robert H. Schuller

When an opportunity comes, it holds possibilities. And when you move away from it or don't sense it or grasp it, you're really throwing away your future; you're throwing away your tomorrow. -Robert H. Schuller

If you are different, or you have minimum possibilities, you can still succeed. I am living proof of that. -Zlatan Ibrahimovic

I think every national team has the same possibilities to win the World Cup. -Javier Hernandez

With the strong women I write about, I want to create a sense of strong possibilities. -Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

It pays to cultivate popularity. It doubles success possibilities, develops manhood, and builds up character. -Orison Swett Marden

In order to keep himself at the top of his condition, to obtain complete mastery of all his powers and possibilities, a man must be good to himself mentally; he must think well of himself. -Orison Swett Marden

The secret of success lies in that old word, 'Drudgery,' in doing one thing long after it ceases to be amusing; and it is 'this one thing I do' that gathers me together from my chaos, that concentrates me from possibilities to powers, and turns powers into achievements. -Orison Swett Marden

Strength of will is the test of a young man's possibilities. Can he will strong enough and hold whatever he undertakes with an iron grip? -Orison Swett Marden

I think we are living in paradise with regards to the ways we can amuse ourselves, communicate. We have such a richness of possibilities. -Ian Watson

What does 'work' mean in this 21st, ultra-wired century, with its exploding new industries, low barriers to entry and endless possibilities? Is technology making our lives more flexible – or our days more endless? -Rachel Sklar

I think the plasticity of the novel is its greatest challenge. There are no rules; there is no necessary form. You can know what you want it to be, or do, and still not know how to write it. There are endless possibilities, infinite choices. What voice should it be in? What events to start with? What characters will be part of it? -Sue Miller

I realized all of the possibilities that could exist for me with my camera: all of the images that I could capture, all of the lives I could enter, all of the people I could meet and how much I could learn from them. -Mary Ellen Mark

The object of religion is the imagination, that deep and inexhaustible font of our understanding and symbolizing our deepest possibilities. -Eugene Kennedy

Friendship is something whose depth fits human aspirations and fulfills human possibilities. It has heft to it, as a gold-piece does and a gambling chip does not. -Eugene Kennedy

Imagination makes us aware of limitless possibilities. How many of us haven't pondered the concept of infinity or imagined the possibility of time travel? In one of her poems, Emily Bronte likens imagination to a constant companion, but I prefer to think of it as a built-in entertainment system. -Alexandra Adornetto

I read so much science fiction when I was young. I believe science fiction is the genre for exploration and to learn about possibilities via book. -Bob Mayer

I always look on imagination as one of the most powerful things we can cultivate in young people. If they have a good, active imagination, they can cope with life better; they are… able to imagine possibilities and to think around problems. -Michael Pryor

I think that crime is a good vehicle for looking at society in general because the nature of the crime novel means that you draw on a wide group of social possibilities. -Val McDermid

I'm just fascinated by the past. You know, both by the possibilities it holds and by the complete tyranny of it, the way it sort of keeps you in this stranglehold and makes you want things that you no longer have and you can never get back. -Samantha Harvey

The past is open to all sorts of magical possibilities because it can't be verified. It's as we make it, so it seems to be entirely free. It seems to be completely up for grabs. But of course it's not. -Samantha Harvey

I'm extremely positive about investment in Africa. Africa has a wonderful climate, wonderful people, and amazing possibilities. Africa has been called dark and hopeless, but today it is neither of these. Africa is awakening. It's a huge market of almost a billion people with huge resources and a young population. It's the best place to invest. -Christoffel Wiese

'What if?' statements throw fuel on the fire of stress and worry. Things can go in a million different directions, and the more time you spend worrying about the possibilities, the less time you'll spend focusing on taking action that will calm you down and keep your stress under control. -Travis Bradberry

Maybe it's because I look into the future professionally, but I see great possibilities for both humanity and our planet. I don't believe the thriving of one has to come at the expense of the other, and I'm deeply concerned to find out whether other people do think that. -Karl Schroeder

Camera 1.0 was film. Camera 2.0 was digital. 3.0 is a light-field camera that opens all these new possibilities for your picture taking. -Ren Ng

There are a lot of possibilities I'm looking at for the future, but I'm very insistent on not limiting myself. -Damian Woetzel

I got a little bit lost in the writing process: like, that moment in the 'Fight Song' music video where I'm throwing the crumpled paper on the bed, that was really true life.

I would love if film doesn't disappear, if we can have film forever so we would have all these brushes, all these possibilities available. -Emmanuel Lubezki

Whenever I start a project, I have a broad range of possibilities. -Shaun Tan

The traditional Hollywood system is pretty rigid, but the film scene in, say, South Africa is booming with a lot of possibilities.

What a world this will be when human possibilities are freed, when we discover each other, when the stranger is no longer the potential criminal and the certain inferior! -W. E. B. Du Bois

A question is a pursuit, an invitation to envision and explore a series of possibilities, to struggle and empathize and doubt and believe. The question moves, whereas our sense of what an answer is can often be static, a stopping point. -Tracy K. Smith

Playful stimulation probably hits all kinds of synaptic possibilities. It is all make-believe and all over the map. The potentiality of the synapses and the potentiality of playfulness are a beautiful marriage. -Brian Sutton-Smith

Here is the root of all romanticism: that man, the individual, is an infinite reservoir of possibilities, and if you can so rearrange society by the destruction of oppressive order, then these possibilities will have a chance, and you will get Progress. -T. E. Hulme

The view which regards man as a well, a reservoir full of possibilities, I call the romantic; the one which regards him as a very finite and fixed creature, I call the classical. -T. E. Hulme

Imagine the possibilities if humanity banded together before disaster struck to relieve everyday suffering worldwide. -Christy Turlington

It's not going to be true that every country has the same technological possibilities, but there is no reason why it might not be more or less true. Broadly, that the idea that the same technologies should be available everywhere seems to me very plausible. -James Mirrlees

If you're playing with a number of people, there are all sorts of textures, all kinds of possibilities you can get into. So why just play a theme together and then take solos? -Roscoe Mitchell

From the moment we started working on the first 'Wreck-It Ralph,' we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters. -Rich Moore

Even criticism is more interesting when the writer's authority does not only come through this omniscient narrator, but through questions, ambivalence, vulnerability. A mind questioning and on the move, not just settling down and declaring – that's one of the most interesting possibilities. -Margo Jefferson

The aggregate of everybody's emotion, it's such a powerful thing. You can see it in the Trump rallies, where people – I just know, in their living rooms, would be better people – are driven to the worst possibilities by the bloodlust in a crowd. It just gets ginned up, and they're outside of themselves. -Meryl Streep

When I reached America, there was so much space and colour. The possibilities seemed endless. At least that's how I felt at 18.

It was easy, really. -Martina Navratilova

I don't want to have another baby, but my little sister is adopted, and I was hoping that one day I could do that…There are so many possibilities. -Evan Rachel Wood

While we rejoice in the new possibilities open to humanity, we also see the dangers arising from these possibilities, and we must ask ourselves how we can overcome them. -Pope Benedict XVI

There's a wide spectrum of possibilities in how to deliver a song. -Kurt Elling

The use of chance operations opened out my way of working. The body tends to be habitual.

It revealed possibilities that were always there except that my mind hadn't seen them. -Merce Cunningham

When I look at a football pitch, I suppose, yes, I see it as my canvas. I see solutions, possibilities, the space to express myself. I am always looking for ways to be creative, to gain an edge. -Robin Van Persie

Animation in itself has so many different looks and styles and possibilities. -Dave Filoni

If you desire something, you don't have it. It is more interesting than enjoyment, because enjoyment erases the mysteries and the vision of desire.

Jesus walking on water is an allegory, not fluid mechanics. God destroying the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah is a warning, not a historical battle. Doubting Thomas is an example, not a person. The story of Noah, with all of its scientific and historical impossibilities, can be read the same way. -Kyle Hill

Thinking of possibilities is like driving a car on a freeway. You have an open road that stretches endlessly before you where your thoughts are not shackled. But when we say 'impossible,' we have already reached a dead-end in our minds. So dwell on possibilities to open up your horizon. -Pankaj Patel

I should have conceived the idea for 'The Mighty Walzer' earlier. A boy who dreamed of winning fame, fortune, and the adoration of beautiful women as a table-tennis player – shame on me for taking so long to see the mock-heroic possibilities in that. -Howard Jacobson

I love the ultimate escapism of paranormal and fantasy – all of the otherworldly creatures, magic, and possibilities that transport both reader and writer away from reality for a while – it's such delicious fun! -Wendy Higgins

When trying to innovate, most people stop after 10-15 possibilities, failing to recognize that their first ideas are usually the most obvious ones. -Adam Grant

There are many ways to lead a life. It would always be ideal to have a paycheck coming in. But I really love this fly-by-the-seat-of-the-pants approach. It's scary and wonderful at the same time. I feel very open to many possibilities. -Wendy Whelan

At some point in the idea process, I simply wear myself down and force myself to choose. But here's the thing: Once I do choose, suddenly all the other possibilities wither and die, and thus I never have a backlog of well-formed ideas waiting for me when my latest book gets finished. -Erik Larson

Growing up in America, I experienced two puberties. The first opened me up to the possibilities of adulthood. The second reinforced that for someone like me – an immigrant, a minority, an Asian-American – there were limits. -Jenny Zhang

I'm thrilled to be working with the Science Channel. A chance to shine a light on the wonder and exciting possibilities of science with such a smart and talented team is a dream come true for me. It's very gratifying to me personally, and it's also a way to honor my family. -Nick Sagan

People say never work with children and animals. I actually like working with Oliver Bell, and working with a rat really opens possibilities to you because you don't know how it's going to be. It's just a rat, so you can just react to this rat being a rat, if that makes sense. -Tamzin Merchant

I believe that the therapist's function should be to help people become free to be aware of and to experience their possibilities. -Rollo May

Problems are the outward signs of unused inner possibilities. -Rollo May

The Internet has given us 10 or 15 new styles of communication: long messages like blogging, and then short messages like texting and tweeting. I see it all as part of an expanding array of linguistic possibilities. -David Crystal

The future is fluid. Each act, each decision, and each development creates new possibilities and eliminates others. The future is ours to direct. -Jacque Fresco

Roger Miller opened a lot of people's eyes to the possibilities of country music, and it's making more impact now because it's earthy material: stories and things that happen to everyday people. I call it 'people music.' -Glen Campbell

I saw experimental film-makers teaching in college. They did what they wanted and didn't worry about the market, but the circumstances ended up offering me other possibilities. -Todd Haynes

We read to find life, in all its possibilities. -Claire Messud

Tennis has opened a number of possibilities for me, and in future, it would be great to give something back. -Ana Ivanovic

Monsters are a departure from 'reality' in a way that allows for a range of fantastic possibilities. I mean this within the world of literature as well as in regards to art.

For products with revision possibilities, there is no better source available than a company going out of business! -E. Joseph Cossman

It would be ridiculous to ignore the speed and possibilities of the digital landscape. -Anna Wintour

It would be ridiculous to ignore the speed and possibilities of the digital landscape – you absolutely need to have fast-moving news online, but if you want to build a large audience over time, you absolutely have to take a risk on the big challenging stuff. -Anna Wintour

I think every administration has a settling-in process. And there's always an adjustment between what you can say during a campaign and what you find are the possibilities and the imperatives when you win the election and you enter the Oval Office. -Lee Hsien Loong

We have to create a range, and we have to let there be possibilities. And basically, by showing there are different types of people, you write down the monolith. You stop having to represent for all black people when you allow there to be different types represented. -Dee Rees

The possibilities that come with thinking about the camera as a portal into the realm of information and services are attractive not only to Snap but also to every other big player in the tech world.

Because you've been exposed to Western tonal music, you know after a certain chord sequence what the next possibilities are. Your brain has compiled a statistical map of which ones are most likely and least likely.

I am in the business of exploring crazy possibilities. -John Lithgow

There are only three integral views of the world: the religious, the materialistic, and the Islamic. They reflect three elemental possibilities (conscience, nature, and man), each of them manifesting itself as Christianity, materialism, and Islam. -Alija Izetbegovic

I pretty quickly move from an idea to possibilities for execution. If there's one advantage, I think, with working in television for even a short amount of time is trying to gain a faculty for processing a storyline or an idea and how to then best implement that and execute that as swiftly as possible. -James Spader

The subject matter of the show, 'Cabaret,' was more than risky. And the emcee I would be playing didn't have a single line of dialogue. Still, it was full of possibilities, and it was mine. -Joel Grey

I'm about possibilities and about surprises and the life force. -Joel Grey

I think when you get Robert Griffin, one of the most explosive quarterbacks to ever play the position, in a Mike Shanahan-type system, the possibilities are very exciting, I think, with Mike Shanahan's imagination. -Jon Gruden

I am terribly interested in the paragraph: the paragraph as an object, the construction, and the possibilities of what a paragraph can do. -Hisham Matar

What I want is a world where neither gender nor sex are destiny. Where no child is ever told there's anything they can't do, or must do, 'because you're a boy' or 'because you're a girl.' It's not a world where anything is 'taken' from anyone – it's one where everyone's possibilities are enlarged. -Naomi Alderman

Momentum is building for the creation of a shared future, one that is more egalitarian, inclusive, and respectful of the environment – a future that ultimately offers greater possibilities for personal development and control over our individual lives. -Isabelle Kocher

When you're surrounded by the world's leading social innovators, it's impossible not to be inspired by the energy and the 'what if' possibilities all around us. -Tae Yoo

I see The Stone Roses in '89 as Technicolor: we were all about joy and possibilities of life. -Ian Brown

The future will bring new possibilities and ideas – and new terms for them. -Jenna Wortham

With 'Black Panther,' black artists were provided with the opportunity and agency to create art that captures the full range of their imaginative possibilities. It matters that Chadwick Boseman is the protagonist and is supported by a cast of nearly all black characters. -Clint Smith

Denys Cowan and Dwayne Turner's visions of Wakanda as an ersatz African Epcot Center opened my eyes to the unexploited possibilities; these men, both of whom are African American, together with writer Peter B.

By having Spider-Man exist in the same universe as the Guardians of the Galaxy… C'mon, that opens up so many possibilities! -Jon Watts

It's not the number of trucks parked outside that make a movie interesting but if you have more money, you have more time. More time enables you to try out other possibilities or follow an interesting lead. I don't like indulgence, but to have more possibilities is always more interesting. -Christoph Waltz

I remember listening to 'Songs In The Key Of Life' as a kid. Stevie Wonder has an ability to manipulate pop into something globally obtainable. Anyone can listen and enjoy it because there's something for everyone. That woke me up to the possibilities of pop music. -Jack Garratt

Success gives you a platform for further success – suddenly everybody wants to work with you, and your opportunities and possibilities open up. But at the same time, success is also immensely challenging – it ultimately often creates pride, stubbornness, and sloppiness that beget failure, taking down people and organizations. -Joe Lonsdale

My gratitude is great to my family and friends for accepting me as the person who they now know me to be and for letting me show them the possibilities of a life well lived. -Sarah McBride

I love the way painting is so full of illusionistic possibilities. -Jessica Stockholder

I love the writing of Walter Tevis and what he views as the possibilities of science rather than science fiction. -Roger Deakins

Women are working for part or all of their adult lives now. The possibilities are limitless, but you need to prepare. -Frances Hesselbein

I really hate racism because I saw people denied possibilities. -Joe R. Lansdale

The growing diversity of family life comes with new possibilities as well as new challenges. -Stephanie Coontz

'Cabaret' was one of the first pieces of musical theater I saw that showed the possibilities of what musical theater can do. -Tom Kitt

We have to start imagining a new reality – this will mean fewer police and more social workers and teachers. This will mean creating more economic possibilities and investment that preserves and does not displace our communities. -Opal Tometi

I think about a young person who is sitting at home, 13 or 14, a person of color, possibly questioning their sexuality, and watching Dr. Hugh Culber and saying, 'I'm a part of an ideal future that we could work towards.' We're planting seeds in the minds of young people to say, 'Your possibilities are limitless.' -Wilson Cruz

By early 2009, tens of thousands of students were watching tutorials on the Khan Academy every day.

The possibilities surrounding the academy were so exciting that I had trouble doing my day job properly. And soon, I quit. -Sal Khan

'Your Name' is a film created with the innate imaginations of a Japanese team and put together in a domestic medium.

There are endless possibilities for what I can wear on and off the court. -Kyle Kuzma

There's always plays that Coach Reid just draws up every single week. I always say that they always work. He just gets on the board in his room and just starts drawing plays. The possibilities are endless. -Patrick Mahomes

Looking towards the future excites me with the possibilities we have to improve, and I'm excited about what the future might bring. -Kepa Arrizabalaga
