Human bodies are designed for regular physical activity. The sedentary nature of much of modern life probably plays a significant role in the epidemic incidence of depression today. Many studies show that depressed patients who stick to a regimen of aerobic exercise improve as much as those treated with medication.
Postmodernism is, of course, the dead end from which hauntology starts – but one of its role is to denaturalise what postmodernism has taken for granted, to conceive of postmodernism as a condition in the sense of a sickness.

I don’t subscribe to the idea of a first and second heroine. I go by if a role is strong.
I wouldn’t say there’s a need for the Spice Girls, but I’d say there’s a place for the Spice Girls. There’s certainly a place for them, but you don’t promote the Spice Girls at the expense of promoting what I think are good role models for girls. You need to create some kind of equality.
Lawyers have rendered immense sacrifices for the restoration of democracy and free judiciary, and their role in this regard cannot be ignored.

My role in society, or any artist’s or poet‘s role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all.
I’m a role model to a lot of kids.
When I thought about having the greatest impact with my life, I thought about all the times people lose loved ones because diseases weren’t detected early enough. I thought, ‘I can play a role there.’

I always say I write because I have questions, not because I have answers. It’s true that you begin the conversation – that’s the role of the artist. But it’s not my job to tell us what to do next. I wish I had those tools.
I’m a big fan of Purdue as an institution and in its role of educating the next-generation workforce.
I know my role on this team, and I’m expected to prepare and to perform every week and play well.

I feel that business leaders with their ability to create businesses, with their ability to scale, need to play an important role in social service.

There is no room for military people, including our veterans, to see themselves as victims, even if so many of our countrymen are prone to relish that role.

More Asians need to be on television as a positive role model.
It’s usually the exact same three things which are, the Scripts, the Director and the Role those are the three things I look for and really any two of them, If I get two of them that’s usually enough, but definitely those are the things I look for.

Many schools desperately need caring professionals like guidance counselors and social workers to ensure students’ emotional, social and educational needs are met. But proposals to arm teachers are irresponsible and dangerous. The role of educators is to teach and nurture our children, not to be armed guards.
In fifth grade, I did ‘Oklahoma!,’ but I didn’t get a leading role. I knew the whole play and could sing it already, but they were like, ‘The sixth-grader has to get the lead.’ I was really discouraged.
It is impossible for Bangladesh alone to take action against the rising sea level, as it has been a cumulative effect of global emission in which Bangladesh does not have any role. It is the responsibility of global community to address this issue as urgently as possible.
My commitment to the security and future of Israel is based upon basic morality as well as enlightened self-interest. Our role in supporting Israel honors our own heritage.
What I am going to write is the last of what I have to say. I will say that literature is the only consciousness we possess and that its role as consciousness must inform us of our ability to comprehend the hideous danger of nuclear power.
Every role is physical to a certain extent, but as a viewer, I don’t respond well to actors doing more than they need to tell a story.
When we teach in pluralistic ways, there are two wonderful dividends. First of all, we reach more students, because some learn best through stories, some through works of art, some through role play etc. Second of all, we show what it is like really to understand something.
The DJ role, it’s never been a big thing for me.
The ‘Doom’ thing is to be able to come at things with a different point of view. I decided the mask would just add to the mystique of the character as well as make Doom stand out. I though it’d be an easy way for people to see and differentiate between characters, sorta like when an actor gains weight for a role.
My mother’s death brought me to my knees. She was my hero, my role model, my very best friend. I spoke to her every single day of my life. I really tried hard when I grew up to make her proud of me.
Ultimately, mentorship plays such a big role in breaking directors that successful male directors tend to reach the helping hand to guys who remind them of themselves. We need more women directors so they can reach out to girls who remind them of themselves.
There’s no particular role that comes to mind that I’d like to take on, but for me, it’s about playing interesting characters and not just two-dimensional ones.
I think everybody has their own way of looking at their lives as some kind of pilgrimage. Some people will see their role as a pilgrim in terms of setting up a fine family, or establishing a business inheritance. Everyone’s got their own definition. Mine, I suppose, is to know myself.
I had many teachers that were great, positive role models and taught me to be a good person and stand up and be a good man. A lot of the principals they taught me still affect how I act sometimes and it’s 30 years later.
If I look at my era, you looked at the black players who were playing then and there weren’t many – Clyde Best… Certainly as each generation has gone, there have been role models for young black players to aspire to.

Faith Hill is a big role model.
When we have any function, whether it’s language or vision or cognitive functions like memory, we aren’t dealing with a straight line to the brain that says ‘This is what I do.’ The brain builds a network of connections, a network of neurons that have a particular role in that function.
I was always the smallest role in community theater and school plays. I always had two lines – I was the kid that came on stage and said one thing and then left, and that was my part for the play.
For me, I was always the only woman in my cohort, first as a mechanical engineering undergraduate student, then as a chemical engineering graduate student. There were very few women getting degrees in those fields at the time. My role models were men – great men role models.

In ‘Maad Dad,’ I play Lal’s wife, who dies quite young. I’ve gone completely retro to fit into the role of his traditional wife.

The Republican Party is the Grand Old Party. It’s made enormous contributions to the success of our country. And it is a party that has embraced its leadership role when it has had the majority or the White House.
I think there is something about the Internet which gives people almost an opportunity to role play and to create a facade, an image. I see that as quite a dangerous development because I think what we call social networking, Twitter, Facebook, etc., is actually quite antisocial.
Many scientists think that philosophy has no place, so for me it’s a sad time because the role of reflection, contemplation, meditation, self inquiry, insight, intuition, imagination, creativity, free will, is in a way not given any importance, which is the domain of philosophers.
I’d love to be a role model for black kids, whether they play hockey or not.

One of the ways that people avoid taking responsibility for their role in their own pain is what I call the BPs – blame and projection.

But when I got to know they just wanted me to stand in for Sanjay Dutt for some scenes, I decided to give this offer the pass.
Companies and leaders are role models – not just with the business community – but in the broader world.
You can’t fall back on the private sector and say, ‘You take care of the nation’s banking system.’ That’s a fundamental function of the government, the Federal Reserve, the Treasury and the FDIC, etc. All of those agencies have a major role to play there.

I’m not playing a role. I’m being myself, whatever the hell that is.

I think how Chicago plays a role in my life – it had such a role in my youth and the decisions that I made as a kid and formulated who I am as an artist early on.

All that young people have to look up to are older role models, and I think it’s important to have people like myself show that it’s OK to be who you are when you’re young.

In America, there’s a failure to appreciate Europe‘s leading role in the world.
If you’re the person living closest to the parent who’s going to need help, and you take on the whole role of primary caregiver, you can be pretty sure your sibling who lives farthest away is going to call you and say, ‘You don’t know what you’re doing.’ Because they’re not on the spot, and they probably feel guilty.
I didn’t have a role model. My role model was Michael Jordan. Bad role model for an Indian dude… I didn’t have anyone who looked like me. And by the time I was old enough to have what could have been a role model, they were my peers. Aziz Ansari is my peer. Kal Penn is my peer.
I didn’t have parents, so I lived in people’s homes… And because I grew up with no parental role models, I learned to become my own friend, eventually my own father and my own mother.

I think a primal role of a man in a relationship is to protect his woman.
I would like to be called an inspiration to people, not a role model – because I make mistakes like everybody else. When I’m offstage, I’m just like everybody else.

The role of the intellectual cannot be to excuse the violence of one side and condemn that of the other.
People are not used to seeing an older woman on screen, unless she’s playing a character role. Why can’t they make a movie about a woman who’s forty-five who’s falling in love or getting divorced? Why does the leading role always have to be a woman who’s twenty-three or twenty-eight?

The role of anxiety in the development of human personality is central, and it is intricate beyond our understanding.
To all the parents out there, thank you for allowing me to be a role model for your children. I really, really do not take that for granted.

I… was not too happy to suddenly take on this public role thrust upon me. They just assumed I was the Joan of Arc of the women’s movement. And I wasn’t at all. It put a lot of unnecessary pressure on me.
