There is a danger for Britain as we perceive ourselves, or as we are – less wealthy, facing economic austerity – that we essentially draw back.

Julian Schnabel
The choice facing the American people is not between growth and stagnation, but between short-term growth and long-term disaster.

I had hoped to hear the President tonight tell the Congress and the American people exactly how he plans to tackle some of the important issues facing this country, unfortunately I did not.

Frank Lautenberg
I always said when Edge and I were tag team partners that we had great chemistry together. Then we ended up parting our own ways and facing each other, and we found that chemistry again as opponents. It doesn’t matter how you put Edge and myself in the ring, we’re going to make sure that we give you what you pay for.

Airbnb is creating a new marketplace for space and is facing many of the challenges that eBay faced back in 1998 when they created a new marketplace for goods.

John Boozman has been traveling the world, making 129 visits to 53 countries during his time in Washington, and ignoring the real problems hardworking Arkansans are facing every single day. That is unacceptable.

I have dealt with lots of teens in my show and the big problems teenagers are facing is the impact of social media in all forms, as it seems like it has a heavy negative influence on them.

Despite facing rejections, I did not give in or take any other route. I was always open to face rejections. I took it in a positive stride.

When you make that choice of stepping out and facing the issue of disclosure, you do create this kind of self-imposed negative fear. It’s unfortunate it still happens today. ‘Do I step out and say I’m a gay guy?’ But you have got to do it and live your life on your terms and no one else’s terms.

We all know that there are different scripted programs out there, and we’re all facing the same challenges in terms of ratings and everything else, but I think that there is a lot of opportunity to be had as well, and what I’m excited to do is to get to explore that.

James Mooney
As we know, menstrual hygiene is an issue women have been facing over the years. It’s great that the initiative to provide low-cost sanitary napkins has been undertaken. It is an empowering step for many women.

The women I see are very brave women, very strong women, women that are facing a lot of challenges and yet are up to the challenges and are making a very big effort. So I don’t see why one of them cannot become a president – one day.

Nolan Sotillo
I cannot be silent when facing these evils against women and children.

Chen Guangcheng
I think about fighting my brother being as natural as giving him a hug. We were basically born facing each other, so it would be something interesting. We’d put on the best fight we ever had. We know each other too well.

Why are we in this mess, now facing the prospect of economic armageddon? It’s because the prevailing characteristic has been greed, and it doesn’t matter whether it’s individuals living beyond their means or governments living beyond their means or people seeking to get rich quick.

Jeremy Paxman
I think ‘Lost in Space’ certainly shifted from being an ensemble adventure series about a family facing the unknown alien environment to this trio of comedians – Dr. Smith, the Robot, and Will Robinson being the straight guy. It definitely changed its tone over the three seasons and 84 episodes we did.

I began to fear that I was forever going to be living in a hot desert cage, living as and being treated as a male, disappearing from the world into a secret prison, and never facing a public trial.

Chelsea Manning

So we have been facing this crisis, and it’s devastating the people of Arizona. And I feel as governor I have a responsibility to protect the citizens.

We never want to force the Bible down people’s throats. But I want them to ask, ‘What joy do they have that I don’t have?’ Let go and enjoy yourself and leave feeling like you can take on whatever you’re facing in life.

Fujio Mitarai
When I found myself facing jeers by wearing the shirts of Juventus and Milan, I always accepted them.

Politicians or pundits can distort or cherry-pick climate science any way they want to try and gain temporary influence with the public. But any serious industrialist who’s facing ‘climate exposure’ – as it’s now called by money managers – cannot afford to engage in that sort of self-delusion.

Again, as a gay man I look at that and say there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it, but as a human being I look at it and say ‘Why? Where’s this disparity coming from, and why can’t we as a culture and society dig deeper to examine that?’ We’re terrified of facing ourselves.

What patients seek is not scientific knowledge that doctors hide, but existential authenticity each person must find on her own… the angst of facing mortality has no remedy in probability.

Just as our adversaries and threats continue to evolve, so, too, must the FBI. The key to this evolution lies with our greatest assets: our people and our partnerships.
