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.

Colm Feore

I have an avocado tree at my place in Los Angeles – it’s the smoother-skinned one, which tends to be a little stringy. Often the birds or raccoons get the avocados before I can harvest them.

I think part of the problem with charity is that it tends to make us view people as helpless victims. I think in the future, we’ll look back on charity in the same way that we look back on colonialism today: as a very paternalistic system that doesn’t fully recognise the full spectrum of humanity.

The use of chance operations opened out my way of working. The body tends to be habitual. The use of chance allowed us to find new ways to move and to put movements together that would not otherwise have been available to us. It revealed possibilities that were always there except that my mind hadn’t seen them.

What I personally gravitate toward tends to be fantasy, medium dark – not too dark – fairy tales and sci fi. Stop-motion takes something on the page that’s really dark and adds a little sweetness to it, a living toys realm.

There is something inherent in our democracy that tends to want to level. America is a little uncomfortable in the presence of someone who is distinctly superior in whatever way.

Generally, I think most of my writing tends to have some kind of magical element to it. That’s the way I can access the emotional life of the character.

I think what makes ‘Jeopardy!’ special is that, among all the quiz and game shows out there, ours tends to encourage learning.

I avoid tea and especially coffee as it tends to give me anxiety.

The ‘Womanthology’ book got a lot of people jobs, inside and outside the industry, and I think stuff like that tends to be really effective. You have something in print that you can point an editor or a publisher to, and it makes a huge difference for a lot of people.

The more self-aware an animal is, the more empathetic it tends to be.

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

A common danger tends to concord. Communism is the exploitation of the strong by the weak. In Communism, inequality comes from placing mediocrity on a level with excellence.

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
I work out every morning for an hour while in front of the news channel or business channels, then I’ll ride for four, five hours a day. So I’m on the move all the time, and I think that’s the key. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. That’s the law of physics.

Ian Millar
Hard rock for me is AC/DC, Def Leppard, Tesla, Kiss. Metal tends to be louder, ruder, darker, like Judas Priest, Slayer, Iron Maiden.

Money tends to make people suspicious, if there’s any money floating around.

Life tends to be an accumulation of a lot of mundane decisions, which often gets ignored.

American popular culture, like individuals in daily life, tends to either romanticize or demonize mothers. We ricochet between ‘Everything I ever accomplished I owe to my mother’ and ‘Every problem I have in my life is my mother’s fault.’

When I am a good guy on TV, my character tends to be almost identical to how I am as a real person. However, as a bad guy, I get to be the opposite. I get to be a jerk. I get to talk trash, I get to say all the things that I’m thinking but have to restrain myself from saying out of respect or decency.

Lamar Hunt
I think on a whole host of issues Washington tends to be a lagging indicator on public opinion.

Ironically, when a bunch of very smart people are sitting around a table for hours trying to figure out whether they should do something, that tends to not necessarily lead to the best results.

Running fills the cup that has to pour out for others. Running feeds the soul that has a responsibility to nourish. Running sets the anchor that limits the drift of the day. Running clears the mind that has a myriad of challenges to solve. Running tends to the self so that selfishness can subside.

I do mostly comedy, and it tends to be a subtler comedy. But I think that probably lends itself well to commercials.

Allyn Rachel

Walter Gilbert

People feel very strongly about restaurants if theyre involved in them. It tends to take over your life for good and bad.

The ear tends to be lazy, craves the familiar and is shocked by the unexpected; the eye, on the other hand, tends to be impatient, craves the novel and is bored by repetition.

I would rather play a club show, just because it tends to make a much livelier show. You can connect with people when it’s a smaller crowd.

I go to the gym every day. That tends to taper off when I’m at a tournament. During tournaments, I’m not trying to build fitness. I’m simply trying to keep away any kind of tension. I go for long walks to clear my head.

Star Trek‘ tends to take itself a little too seriously. They were either very dramatic shows, or if we did a humorous show, it was always a little like, ‘Oh, we’re doing humor on ‘Star Trek,” especially on the original series.

I’m not an actor that tends to care. I don’t ask ‘Is this a close up? Is this a master? Is this a wide? What are you doing? If I look up and notice the camera I go ‘Oh, it’s a big one today, must be an IMAX.’ And that’s kinda it for me because it doesn’t affect what I’m doing.

The media tends to report rumors, speculations, and projections as facts… How does the media do this? By quoting some ‘expert‘… you can always find some expert who will say something hopelessly hopeless about anything.

The discussion about energy options tends to be an intensely emotional, polarised, mistrustful, and destructive one. Every option is strongly opposed: the public seem to be anti-wind, anti-coal, anti-waste-to-energy, anti-tidal-barrages, anti-carbon-tax, and anti-nuclear.

The N.B.A. is not an easy job. As you get older, you play this game for 82 games a year, and you play 11 or 12 years, your body tends to break down.

The pop culture tends to go to the lowest denominator, so cinema is in a weird place, due to its mass nature. It’s diluted down to very little: simple stories and simple politics.

I grill almost all of my fish with the skin on because that gives you real protection at least on one side.

The pursuit of happiness, which American citizens are obliged to undertake, tends to involve them in trying to perpetuate the moods, tastes and aptitudes of youth.

One motivation for the ‘Soul Train’ awards was the grumbling that all of us in the industry have heard about the way black music tends to be viewed as a secondary phenomenon by the other awards shows.

Don Cornelius
Government isn’t that good at rapid advancement of technology. It tends to be better at funding basic research. To have things take off, you’ve got to have commercial companies do it.

Sporting a six-pack doesn’t necessarily mean that one is fit as it tends to reduce one’s immunity levels.

Having to respond to things that are made up or untrue tends to be a waste of time.

I believe that, in our industry, overexposure tends to create problems for artists, so fortunately, I have been exposed but not overexposed.

I never do anything to my hair. I just wash it. It tends to get dry, so I just try to put good, natural oils in it. I do a deep conditioning mask, which is quite good.

The way the media tends to cover fashion is as this superfluous, vacuous industry. They focus on models and shows, but behind all that is a massive global industry.

Personally, I believe that government, rather than money, tends to be the primary factor limiting the development of new technologies.

One of my frustrations is that we in society generally have this bifurcation in how we see the world. That’s probably a little less true with business audiences, but in general, there tends to be this view that for-profit companies are greedy, and nonprofits are noble. It’s absolutely more complicated than that.

When you’re writing these things, you’re in a room making each other laugh, you really have very little sense of political correctness or incorrectness. This is a question that Europe tends to ask and America doesn’t.

I think that even though some of the things on ‘Humans of New York’ are kind of very personal and very revealing, I think the discomfort with sharing that tends to be overwritten by the appreciation of being able to distill the experience of your life into a story and share it with other people.

My first Olympics was Munich in 1972. I am better now than I was then, in knowledge and experience. The age of top riders generally tends to be older than in other sports because it takes a lot of time to be consistent.

Ian Millar
There the union of Church and State tends strongly to paralyze some of the members of the body of Christ. Here there is no such influence to destroy spiritual life and power.

My assumption was that all indigenous architecture would be more fractal. My reasoning was that all indigenous architecture tends to be organized from the bottom up. As it turns out, though, my reasoning was wrong.

Ron Eglash
My mum‘s really the only person who still calls me Helen, and that’s not often. She tends to call me ‘love,’ so when she does say ‘Helen’ it can take me a while to respond.

Too much power in any institution tends to stifle innovation.

The taste of people with large bank accounts tends not to be on the cutting edge.

Paul Goldberger
Beethoven‘s music tends to move from chaos to order, as if order were an imperative of human existence.

Carpet bombing tends to portray something that’s totally indiscriminate, you know, en masse without regard to the target.

I never drink cow’s milk; I always opt for the soya alternative, and when I eat most dairy products, it tends to be in extremely small doses. However, being a vegetarian means I have to get protein from somewhere, so I do eat eggs and cheese about once a week.

As with ‘feminism,’ not to mentionliberalism‘ and ‘conservatism,’ ‘political correctness’ tends to mean what you want it to mean, which also pretty much amounts to utter meaninglessness.

It is all about the kind of experience you garner over the years, which tends to make a difference in the way you play at the top level.

Economic growth tends to require the taking of resources from the Earth. So something has to change on a debt-based economy.

‘The Expats’ is a thriller, but one that tends more toward general fiction than toward breathless pulp.

Sometimes when you think something is shiny and gold, it tends to be rusted and bronze, but that’s just the way it is, man.

Environmental concern is a phenomena that tends to rise in a nation after a certain level of wealth.

What happens is that the people who are leaders in any field are copied. I mean, there’s a reason why every wine newsletter tends to look like mine. They see someone who’s been successful, so they sort of copy these same ideas.

We don’t tell the officials to change the standard for the playoffs, but as we all know, time and space tends to evaporate very quickly in a playoff game; there tends to be a lot more physicality and a lot more adjustments in the course of a series.

If you look at where innovation – defined as ideas, not as commercial product – tends to live, the university system is remarkably innovative.

Grassroots organizing tends to be most available to big campaigns, but it’s actually most useful to small ones. You can’t win a presidential campaign without going on TV, but you can win a local election simply by organizing your community. NationBuilder levels the playing field.

Everything I write tends to come from my own personal experiences, or from people close to me that I’m singing about.

I’m one of those writers who tends to be really good at making outlines and sticking to them. I’m very good at doing that, but I don’t like it. It sort of takes a lot of the fun out.

Conventional wisdom suggests the primary motivator for entrepreneurs is money or wealth creation and, in fact, much of the political debate tends to center around what kind of tax or regulatory policy changes will turn corporate suits into small business adventurers overnight.

The more expensive and/or exclusive a sport, the whiter it tends to be: the fact almost has the force of a law. That is the main reason why the Rugby World Cup, the Pacific islands excepted, was so desperately white, the Springboks included.

Cable news tends to be talking points – you don’t have that much time to substantively unpack an issue.

The only thing wrong with immortality is that it tends to go on forever.

Herb Caen
For a solitary animal egoism is a virtue that tends to preserve and improve the species: in any kind of community it becomes a destructive vice.

Erwin Schrodinger
Each book tends to have its own identity rather than the author’s. It speaks from itself rather than you. Each book is unlike the others because you are not bringing the same voice to every book. I think that keeps you alive as a writer.

My writing tends to become very dense, so I have to keep some cushion. Sometimes, words that seem superfluous are actually essential for the overall effect.

One thing I have found over years is that if you change direction, the initial reaction tends to be very polarized, but as the music gradually filters through and fans start engaging with it on its own terms rather than comparing it to what went before, the appreciation and acceptance of it increases.

Fantasy gets a mixed reception – a lot of fantasy is formulaic but most of the award-winning fantasy on the contrary tends to be the stuff at the edges of the genre, rather than swimming in the middle.

Inspiration doesn’t really work like that – you’re not looking out for it. Inspiration is something that tends to capture you rather than you capture it.

One of the differences between what happens when an author and a gossip columnist sit down to write a book is that the former tends to make every effort at disguising and protecting their sources, while the latter doesn’t particularly care.

The kosher community tends to follow often several years behind the general societal trends.

Apart from the fact that any hardy exercise conduces much to the training and formation of a soldier, pig-sticking tends to give a man what is called a ‘stalker’s eye,’ but which, par excellence, is the soldier’s eye.

Due to my hectic work schedule, I hardly have enough sleep, and my skin tends to look dull. Facial masks are my savior, as it helps to brighten and hydrate my skin.

As you age, your blood pressure tends to get higher.

I’ve always felt that sexuality is a really slippery thing. In this day and age, it tends to get categorized and labeled, and I think labels are for food. Canned food.

The only way governments or would-be governments respond to ills these days is by seeking to lower the temperature… and that tends to mean public spending.

For me, CG tends to feel watered down and it becomes cold because it’s so perfect.

TV tends to look for the living equivalents of squeaky-clean Kens and Barbies, but with my dial I’m more like Ken’s dirty old uncle.

I feel like what I have learned in my career in racing is that anytime you are happy off the race track it tends to show up on the race track.

Theatre tends to be more metaphorical and intense, as you’re locked in one room and focused on one thing. Television can hop around, and you need to invest in its naturalistic reality more. But I love writing both, precisely because they’re so different.

Among Korean immigrants the majority tends to be Christian, because that was the way they immigrated to America – through the support network of churches. I grew up with faith being an important fabric of my life. That comes with my life in the South – it was just a given that you believe.

I would love to work more – I really would – but there is not a lot of stuff around and the stuff that is around is not very complicated; it tends to lie a little flat.

Where I’ve arrived now is the product of mixing the very straight with the very exploratory; there’s a fine line between the two, although it tends to be getting straighter and straighter because my songwriting is getting better.

Andy Partridge
Life… It tends to respond to our outlook, to shape itself to meet our expectations.

You could tell ‘The Handmaid‘s Tale’ from a male point of view. People have mistakenly felt that the women are oppressed, but power tends to organise itself in a pyramid. I could pick a male narrator from somewhere in that pyramid. It would interesting.

People love that you’re human and that we’re frail and we face the same situations. Honesty tends to communicate with people better than standing up there like you have an ‘S’ on your chest.

No other group in America has so had their identity socialized out of existence as have black women… When black people are talked about the focus tends to be on black men; and when women are talked about the focus tends to be on white women.

Subordination tends greatly to human happiness. Were we all upon an equality, we should have no other enjoyment than mere animal pleasure.

Everything I write tends to turn into a superhero team, even if I didn’t mean for it to. I always start off wanting to be solitary, because a) it’s simpler, and b) that isolation is something that I relate to as a storyteller. And then no matter what, I always end up with a team.

Everything you do tends to make you accomplish another step on the road to complete yourself.

I don’t think it’s such a bad idea that people learn the same history in school. I think it tends to ground people and give them something to respond to and react against.

Life… is not simply a series of exciting new ventures. The future is not always a whole new ball game. There tends to be unfinished business. One trails all sorts of things around with one, things that simply won’t be got rid of.

Social media has lots of benefits, but compared to Christianity, it tends to group people by interests. Religion puts you with people who have nothing in common except that you’re human.

Only people who live outside cities realize the size of them. London turns out to be huge; there are great swaths, vast panoramas, a whole diaspora I’d never imagined. The place I live in tends to be manageably small, a few familiar journeys and destinations.

When there’s trouble in a family, it tends to show up in the weakest member. And all the other members of the family know that. They make allowances for the one in trouble.

Ross MacDonald
My clothes have always been expensive. Even though I have had a few lower-priced lines over the years, little by little everything I do tends toward the luxury market.

A lot of my music is kind of contemplative, and somehow that always tends to tilt on the darker side. My inner conversation is apparently quite dark.

Hildur Gudnadottir
Temperature is the key to making a smooth custard butter cream. Some add the butter when the mixture’s still hot but it tends to split and you end up with a grainy result. Wait for it to cool.

American television tends to move faster than European or U.K. television.

I guess I’m the sort who, if I find something comfortable, tends to push against it.

Whereas for me, touring tends to be a very strange and isolating experience.

Then came the choreography… the impact of music and choreography tends to really emphasize an overall feeling of what you really want out of the program.

Peggy Fleming
Doing the acoustic at Carnegie is basically advised because electric music tends to get, let’s just say, acoustically unsound.

Writing tends to be very deliberate. A novelist could probably run a military campaign with some success. They could certainly run a country.

In this part of the world, due to our historical experiences with the Soviet Union and later with Russia, we are used to a situation where Moscow tends to put the blame on the people whenever a tragedy occurs, rather than on the authorities.

My body structure ensures that if I do not watch what I eat, my weight tends to spiral crazily out of control.

Society tends to always make multiples – whether it’s twins or triplets or whatever – one person. And it’s not always fair. I encourage multiples to embrace their individual uniqueness because, just as you are an amazing unit together, that can only happen when you are strong individually.

When I started out, I preferred to watch my films without music, as its presence tends to mask the underlying pace of the film. I felt I could feel the rhythm of the film better without music to influence me.

Paul Hirsch
Obviously classical music tends to be stuff that is usually at least a hundred years old.

Steve Hackett
When you have violence, there’s victims, which entertainment tends not to explore that as much.

‘Unjustly Maligned’ is a neat idea for a podcast. Antony Johnston invites a believer to make the case for a cultural artefact that consensus tends to deride.

All action takes place, so to speak, in a kind of twilight, which like a fog or moonlight, often tends to make things seem grotesque and larger than they really are.

Carl von Clausewitz
Performance art is the ultimate in creativity. Since it has so many possibilities at creativity, it’s essence tends to become creativity.

There is the desire of a consumer society to have no learning curves. This tends to result in very dumbed-down products that are easy to get started on, but are generally worthless and/or debilitating.

My humor tends to be a little more edgy than is appropriate for ‘Twilight,’ although I got some in there. That was fun! There’s just a tonal difference. For me, storytelling is storytelling. But, I do like writing for grown ups.

Happiness is a by-product rather than an end in itself. It pops into your life unbidden, and then tends to pop out again. I’m on record as being depressive. It is related to winter.

Right action tends to be defined in terms of general individual rights and standards that have been critically examined and agreed upon by the whole society.

Sometimes metal music tends to be very masculine, but because our version of metal is a fusion of dance and heavy metal, all the mixing will create a very different type of music and the female aspect of it will help to create more uniqueness to it.

Benjamin Franklin performed a beautiful experiment using surfactants: on a pond at Clapham Common, he poured a small amount of oleic acid, a natural surfactant which tends to form a dense film at the water-air interface.

Pierre-Gilles de Gennes
Collective fear stimulates herd instinct, and tends to produce ferocity toward those who are not regarded as members of the herd.

What we do have is a system in which power tends to be awarded to people on the basis that they are corruptible.

In a hierarchy, every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence.

It’s that one thing that you’re passionate about, that you end up developing tunnel vision for and everything else tends to fall by the wayside. Passion is appealing and universal.

I don’t think we ever really think about it when we’re doing it, because if you sort of go in with a plan of attack, it tends to take away the natural rhythm of songwriting.

It’s funny: what one tends to think of as the best work you’ve done is not what other people think is the best you’ve done.

Most peoples work ethnic tends to be OK, but not fantastic.

The State Department has promised they will never have another temporary mission facility like the one in Benghazi that is so lightly protected. But at the same time, history tends to repeat itself here, and so it might not repeat itself in exactly the same way as Benghazi.

Most lyric poetry is about love, whether yearned after, fulfilled, or wistfully regretted; what isn’t tends to consist of laments and cris du coeur over this, that, and the other.

The evil within the fantasy genre tends to be threatening to the heroes within the story, but not to the reader – or not to the viewer, in the case of cinema – and that’s why I think it’s more palatable and something that is more easily embraced for a lot of people.

Raising the minimum wage, as President Obama proposed in his State of the Union address, tends to be more popular with the general public than with economists.

The average MMA guys have a boxer‘s stance which makes it easier for a wrestler when they try and take you down. I tend to stand sideways and that gives them only one leg to shoot for, it tends to make it more difficult to try and take me down.

One always tends to overpraise a long book, because one has got through it.

I’m a comedian, and I have my share of anxiety and depression; so do most of my friends. My humor tends to lie in the juxtaposition of extreme lightness – I’m a huge musical-theater fan – and extreme darkness. And so I really like playing with those because that’s how I feel.

I don’t really like to just sit down at a computer and write, because that tends to be a little forced.

There tends to be a lot of autism around the tech centers… when you concentrate the geeks, you’re concentrating the autism genetics.

A movie studio has to answer to a marketing department, and to shareholders, to ensure the broadest audience possible for its product; it tends to err on the side of caution as a result.

Time and time again I was told that I would never make the film on time and never make it on budget. That kind of criticism tends to turn me into a great big motor of efficiency.

Ma Ying-jeou tends to use cross-strait policy as an election tool and a political tool, too, and my position is that we don’t use that as a political tool because that is an issue that is critical and essential to the interests of the Taiwanese people.
