The role that hallway chat plays in driving new ideas has become a cliche of business writing, but that doesn’t make it less true.
Crime fiction makes money. It may be harder for writers to get published, but crime is doing better than most of what we like to call CanLit. It’s elementary, plot-driven, character-rich story-telling at its best.
It’s a lot harder to get people to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over beets and carrots than it is to get them to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over artichokes or asparagus, and I enjoy being able to take these humble, ‘lowbrow’ foodstuffs up a few notches and serve them with great exuberance.

I don’t know if it’s harder but when you’re playing a real person you want to honor their memory – even if they’re a criminal or someone that the public loathed. That can be challenging.

The bad thing about young people starting a company is that sometimes they do it for the wrong reasons or because they have the wrong skill set, but the good thing is that they don’t have any of the old paradigms baked into them, so they have a lot of the bright new ideas that are harder to come by as you get older.
I have such a respect for comedy. It’s a lot harder than doing drama, in my opinion; you have to have sort of an innate sense of humor. There are rules to comedy you can learn. But ultimately, it really does require a certain point of view on the world, and that really does appeal to me.
Sometimes when you’re in the storm, it’s harder and maybe when it’s over, then you can look back on it.

Winning the peace is harder than winning the war.

I’m not sure why writing for others became harder. Probably a reluctance to give away anything you might conceivably use yourself caused a block. I did it, but it remained hard when it had once been easy.
Sometimes words are harder than blows.
For some reason, people find me funny. It’s quite hard to define why a thought is funny. It’s even harder to define why a person would be funny. It’s a word that I can’t define at all. But whether I know quite what it is or not, I seem to be it.
You’ve got to push yourself harder. You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper.

I think I’m better at playing difficult than I am at being normal. And to me that’s something I’m working on now. I’m not really that difficult or complex a person, so it’s interesting to me that it’s just so much harder for me to play an everygirl.
Conservative humor is frankly harder than liberal humor. You get points for just being liberal. You can get more points if you make fun of your own side sometimes.
Indifference is harder to fight than hostility, and there is nothing that kills an agitation like having everybody admit that it is fundamentally right.
One of the things that has been very difficult in Libya is the sense of uncertainty – the sense that they haven‘t actually finished the revolution, that there was still a great deal of uncertainty. That uncertainty has made Libya harder for business in terms of oil and other things as well.
I don’t play comedy as comedy. That would be the biggest trap. I think about the characters and their situations. Then you don’t have to worry where the laugh is going to be. But comedy is harder than drama.
We can appear to be tough as nails, but guys have a level of insecurity and vulnerability that’s exponentially bigger than you think. With the primal urge to be alpha comes extreme heartbreak. The harder we fight, the harder we fall.
I’ve always been a big PlayStation fan. Even when the Xbox first came out, I stuck with the PlayStation. I think it’s because when the Xbox first came out, the controller was so different that you just automatically assumed that it was harder to play, and I always just stuck with that notion.
I used to always read my stuff. And I could never understand why artists would say, ‘Oh, I can’t read my older stuff.’ I’d go, ‘Are you crazy? I could read my stuff forever!’ Now it’s a little harder.
When you have a passion for something then you tend not only to be better at it, but you work harder at it too.

Temptation‘s something you have to deal with even if you’re not famous. It’s harder when you’re famous because it’s a lot more in your face, and that makes it a little more difficult to walk away from sometimes.

But I don’t just see the movie when I see the movie, I see all the great people who worked on it and all their hard work, because they could not have worked any harder.

I’ll never forget when me and Jason Matthews wrote the line, ‘Don’t be a tape player hater,’ in ‘Country Man,’ I don’t think I ever laughed harder. We didn’t know where we were gonna put that in a song, but we knew we had to make it into a song. I just remember laughing and being so proud of such a goofy little line.
The real challenge in doing a TV show is in what I would call the maintenance energy. You take that creative energy and you use it every week, of course. But you then need to maintain the quality of the stories, and it’s harder to do.
But I think we’re also just talking about the literacy of the audience. The visual literacy of the audience. They’ve seen so many images now, especially here in the States. There’s so much to look at, to watch. So the visual storytelling literacy is harder to impress.
I know we have to have people of good conscience who stand up against oppression. I know we have to have people who understand that social justice belongs to us all. And that wakes me up every morning, and that makes me fight even harder.
Yes, it’s hard to write. But it’s harder not to.
Caring makes you want to work harder.
Green Arrow has gone through so many changes; he’s been right-wing, he’s been left-wing, he’s been rich, he’s been poor, he’s been a social justice guy, then when I got him, he was a rich playboy guy. So it was a lot harder to get into a character that has so many personas in the past, and I just looked at his anger.
The nobler a man, the harder it is for him to suspect inferiority in others.
My mom tried to not let me see how much we were struggling, but I noticed it. I think that’s what made me work harder. I saw how hard she was working, and I just wanted a better life for both of us.
I think the harder you work, the more luck you have.
Yeah, I think it motivates you as people start to count you out. It doesn’t make you play any harder, because every time you go out on the field you give 110 percent, but it does give you more of an edge mentally, knowing that you were in the same situation, because in sports you always find yourself behind.
It is very difficult to make the ideas in my head come to life, but what is harder is making them look effortless.
There’s a hardening of the culture. Reality TV has lowered the standards of entertainment. You’re left wondering about the legitimacy of relationships. It’s probably harder to entertain the same people with a more classic form of writing, and romantic comedies are a classic genre.
There’s nothing harder than going on TV and saying something that you don’t believe. I don’t do that anymore.
I believe there’s not a harder job in the world than being a teacher, and there isn’t a job with a more direct impact on the performance of our students.
A lot of people think theatre must be much harder work than film, but anything histrionic or superfluous gets seen on camera so you have to work to distil it into a complete sense of what’s true.

It is harder to kill a whisper than even a shouted calumny.
When people listen to Jay-Z, they’re working all day or trying to work and pay their bills, and what they hear is someone who’s free. Who doesn’t have to worry about the electricity. But all we’re taught is that those who are rich deserve to be rich because they worked harder than the rest of us, or they’re smarter.
Nobody works harder than me.
What I learned from people like Carlos Santana is that you cannot get too happy after working for five years in the industry. It takes years and years, and I learned to keep a straight head and keep on working harder and harder.

It’s a weird thing because I’ve been single at the time when I’ve been successful. That’s good and bad. Good, because you meet lots of people, bad because your privacy is infringed, so it’s harder to develop things.
When you become successful on the level that Fleetwood Mac did, it gives you financial freedom, which should allow you to follow your impulses. But oddly enough, they become much harder to follow.

I’d always much rather be second choice on anything because it makes you work harder.
As a financial historian, I was quite isolated in Oxford – British historians are supposed to write about kings – so the quality of intellectual life in my field is much higher at Harvard. The students work harder there.
People respect you more if you just play and blow something out than if you take the easier road. That’s how we think. You get more respect and people play harder for you. Just play till you blow it. Just play till it goes.

You know it’s harder to be a girl in this world because we’re the weaker sex.
I don’t think there’s so much difference between making documentaries and feature films. I think it’s even harder to make documentaries.
I admire when people take the harder path, not because they are masochistic and want to beat themselves up, but because you actually kind of learn more and I think you grow more.
As life goes on, life just gets harder.
I’m interested in the kind of religion that makes life harder. I’m not so interested in the comforting kind of religion.

Good laws make it easier to do right and harder to do wrong.
Life isn’t easy, and leadership is harder still.

Executives will talk about the importance of passion, but what they really mean is finding somebody who will work nights and weekends on their assigned task but predictably and reliably follow orders and just work harder.
Dig just a little bit deeper. Work just a little bit harder. And don’t get weary! Remember this is personal! Let’s finish what we started, and re-elect President Barack Obama!

The public digs needled me to rebel. They forced me to work harder.
Honestly, as hard a profession as acting is, I think music is even harder. Acting, you’re like a leech, because someone else does the hard part for you. They write it for you, then the director tells you what to do. You really just need to know how to pay attention, follow instructions.
We have a harder way to succeed in life as Serbs because of the past that we had and because of the history we had.
Happy is harder than money. Anybody who thinks money will make you happy hasn’t got money.
Researching real people and doing them, I think, is harder than anything else. You don’t want to do a caricature of them and you don’t want to do an impression.

Some people don’t like competition because it makes them work harder, better.
I can’t work on something if I don’t believe in it. I love music, and I am inspired to work harder and spend more energy. I feel lucky that I was born with this passion.
I wear my shadows where they’re harder to see, but they follow me everywhere. I guess that should tell me I’m travelling toward light.
Well, it’s a little harder in New York. It’s not as forgiving to a film crew. You hold up a bunch of New Yorkers who can’t cross the street, they’re not going to take it well. Southern California? They’ll wait. It’s cool man. In New York, they’re like, ‘Are you kidding me? I gotta get to work.’
Fifteen years before I became a screen actor, I was in the theatre. A lot of my work was comedy, which I loved doing. It’s harder.
People don’t realize that the Obama Administration has been, if anything, harder on whistleblowers than the Bush Administration. Part of the reason is that they know that the response will be more muted because the traditional constituency supporting whistleblowers just happen to be the same constituency as Obama’s.
I love writing journalism because it’s all over in two hours and comes straight off the top of the head. Writing novels is soooooo much harder. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Although I have to say, it’s become a lot harder for me since I won the world series because everyone wants to beat me. For example, bluffing is really tough now, because there’s always someone who calls me on the off-chance that they’ll then be able to say they read a world champion‘s bluff.
There’s nothing harder than defining oneself.
As the middle class is predated upon with an ever greater malicious intensity, their children stand to lose more and harder than their parents ever did.

Though it’s harder to justify the use of a cadaver for practicing nose jobs than it is for practicing coronary bypasses, it is justifiable nonetheless. Cosmetic surgery exists, for better or for worse, and it’s important, for the sake of those who undergo it, that the surgeons who do it are able to do it well.
I think we have to keep working enormously hard to see that every single Indigenous child – every Australian child – has true equality of opportunity. We’ve got to work harder at it. I think, you know, the heartland issue for us is the gap; the gap in life expectancy in this country.
Now, it’s my belief that Python is a lot easier than to teach to students programming and teach them C or C++ or Java at the same time because all the details of the languages are so much harder. Other scripting languages really don’t work very well there either.
It’s almost like a lot of black people in America, a lot of young black men, are born with this cloud over their heads. It’s their penitentiary cloud, this philosophy we all have, that it’s harder for us.
I think reviewers have become particularly venomous because, in a way, the power has been sucked from them. A 15-year-old can write a review on the Internet and it means as much as Roger Ebert’s review, and that just makes Roger Ebert mad, so he comes out harder and stronger.
My coach never looked at me as a female fighter, but just as a fighter, as someone he was training. I had to work just as hard as the guys, or harder than them.
Trouble is, kids feel they have to shock their elders and each generation grows up into something harder to shock.
Hopefully with each thing that you do you’re learning something, you’re growing, and you’re pushing yourself a little harder in some way or another. So I think you’d be in real trouble if each new thing that you create didn’t feel like ‘Oh, wow. I feel like I’m doing something a little different this time.’
I have a tendency toward being a micromanager. Which, the bigger the project you’re involved in, the harder that becomes.

I can usually find my own way out of whatever dicey literary or linguistic situations I wander into, but I have to work much harder at the science.

I love acting, so it’s easy when you have a passion for it. I’ve always found the harder you work, the luckier you get.
Years ago, I picked up figure skating. How hard could spins and jumps be, I thought? It’s just applied Newtonian physics. After repeatedly falling on my rear end, I realized it was harder than I thought. But it had an upside. That is how I met my wife, who was ice dancing at the Rockefeller Center ice rink.
We put stereotypes on ourselves. Everybody does that. But I think it’s just a little harder for black kids to just be who they are.
My whole belief system is that our paths are drawn for us. I believe in reincarnation. I believe we’re here to learn and grow. We choose how we come into this life based on what it is we have to learn. Some people have harder lessons than others.
A man can look upon his life and accept it as good or evil; it is far, far harder for him to confess that it has been unimportant in the sum of things.

When it comes down to it, at the end of the day, I need more out of my life and I need to push myself harder. And if at the end of the day I don’t have it, then I don’t have it, but at least I’m going to put myself out there. If I fail, I’m going to fail terrifically.
Modernism, rebelling against the ornament of the 19th century, limited the vocabulary of the designer. Modernism emphasized straight lines, eliminating the expressive S curve. This made it harder to communicate emotions through design.
Most restaurant people work much harder physically, on a daily basis, than most entertainers. Though most people in entertainment complain more.
The 1980s will seem like a walk in the park when compared to new global challenges, where annual productivity increases of 6% may not be enough. A combination of software, brains, and running harder will be needed to bring that percentage up to 8% or 9%.

Don’t think that there’s a different, better child ‘hiding‘ behind the autism. This is your child. Love the child in front of you.

We accept so many things that come through the media; we get used to them, however vigilant we are. But for any creative art, you have to remain 110% conscious, and in a world that’s losing consciousness, that’s getting harder.

Feature-length film comedy is harder to pull off than the episodic sitcom – it doesn’t have the same factory machinery up and running, teams of writers putting familiar characters through permutations – but that doesn’t explain the widening quality gap that makes movie humor look like a genetic defective.
I’m a fast writer, and crime novels are easy to do. It’s much harder to write a 1,000 word article, where everything has to be 100 per cent correct.
I have done a lot greater things than ‘Survivor.’ Going through SEAL training was much harder than ‘Survivor.’
Men display less self-doubt and lead with what seems always like a sense of force and direction. We are not as familiar with women leaders, and so we question their skills. As women, we always need to work harder to prove our competence.
Oh yes, my generation liked to be in some pain when they read. The harder it was, the more good we believed it was doing us.
I can feel pretty critical of people, and I understand that sort of feeling of when you’re going through something that’s painful, taking it out on the world and projecting onto other people, finding faults with other people because it’s harder to find faults in yourself.
When you wake up and learn to love yourself and want to take care of yourself, things are harder because people don’t like the idea of it. But when you get in trouble, it gives people things to talk about.

The more criticism I get, the more it gives me a stronger urge to win. So I try harder.

The Full Sail crowd, it’s a pretty unique and a pretty distinct environment. It’s very close quarters and a bit more of what I’m used to from my days on the independents. But the truth is, I sometimes think that it’s harder to win over a small crowd sometimes than it is to win over a big crowd.
Once universities, rather than religious orders, were established as the key repositories of learning, women would find it ever harder to prove the pen as mighty as the sword.

The harder I work, the luckier I get.

I’ve been through my fair share of highs and lows. Yes, I’ve been written off, and it amazes me, and it amuses me, also, when I’m written off by the press cause then I tell them that’s just the lull before the storm. And every time I’ve been down, I’ve been down, never out. So it just makes me work a lot harder.
Well rounded forms gives smooth sounds; sharper or angular forms give harder and harsher sounds.
For the most part, having more money and more fame make your life harder. It just does. I’ve seen it happen with people. You know, it’s so hard to stay normal. It’s so hard to stay happy. It’s hard to remember why you were doing what you did in the first place.
No one can make me work harder than I do, so I’m generally not interested in who I am competing with.

I would say that nobody is going to work harder for your career than yourself – the one with the vision. No matter how many people you hire, nobody is going to get is as much as yourself does.

I never met a man who worked harder than me.

Try harder to be better and the universe will work towards giving you more happiness.

Life would be so much harder if I had to lie about who I was.
There’s beauty everywhere. There are amazing things happening everywhere, you just have to be able to open your eyes and witness it. Some days, that’s harder than others.

Outwardly, I may look quiet, but deep inside, I’m full of this sense of challenge. I’m always striving to work harder, to improve by learning, to do better and keep dreaming.
The Supreme Court has a very light backlog. They leave a lot of splits among the circuits, a lot of uncertainty. And I think they ought to work a lot harder.

I occasionally rapped along to some homegrown Korean rap. And then a friend introduced me to Wu-Tang and played me ‘Enter the 36th Chambers.’ It was very shocking. And then I started to look for different albums. This was pre-Internet, so it’s hard to find the music, and it was even harder to find music videos.
It is easy not to support the death penalty when there is doubt about the culpability of the person sitting in the chair; it is harder to sustain such principles when the crime of the accused is morally indefensible.

Before I got divorced, I was personally unfamiliar with trial, or at least trial of serious, heart-wrenching proportions. I figured that life went smoothly if you tried hard, and if you messed up, or things weren’t working out, you just tried harder.
The harder I work, the luckier I become.

Living alone makes it harder to find someone to blame.

I’ve always been an entrepreneur, but it’s never been about the money. I like a challenge, the harder the better.
A lot of people who don’t write for kids think it’s easy, because they think kids aren’t as smart as they are, or that you have to dumb down what you would normally write for kids. But I think you have to work harder when you write for kids, to make sure every word is right, that it’s there for the right reason.

I think it’s harder than ever to be an artist. I think that you end up, especially as a middle-aged person, you pay such big consequences for saying, ‘I’m just going to devote my life to making art,’ or ‘I’m going to devote my life to writing novels.’ You end up with no resources.
We don’t feel pressure of, ‘Let’s make this really raunchy.’ It’s more about making a good story, which is 10 times harder. The raunchy stuff’s really easy for us.
