I prefer to play in smaller venues because I like the intimacy, the connection with the audience.

The real issue for the public is to figure out which narrative do we want. We can have a bigger government, if that’s the public’s choice. It’ll just require higher taxes on every American. Do you want that, or do you want smaller government, smaller taxes?

Glenn Hubbard
Having had polio never held me back as I got older. Although having one leg smaller than the other isn’t much fun, I could always get about without any trouble. Luckily, in the music industry, everyone was only interested in my singing and playing and not the size of my legs.

Studio films are really fun. You have months and months to shoot. With the smaller films you get to be on a much more intimate set and have to get things done quickly.

My work indicated that if we consider smaller and smaller black holes, at some stage, the properties of black holes become indistinguishable from those of elementary particles.

Ashoke Sen
When business became big business – conglomerates employing hundreds and even thousands of people – companies divided themselves into still smaller units.

The film world feels like a smaller world than music.

I do tend to like movies that challenge me professionally. That’s mostly on a smaller scale, when you have one or two or five actors, and it’s all about the acting and not the camera.

Ayelet Zurer
Some of the smallest things on a smaller film, to me, are greater achievements than on a big film when you have the resources and the time and everything else.

For rather particular reasons, the interior-design industry moved more quickly than fashion to cope with AIDS. One reason is that it is made up of generally smaller businesses than fashion. The human losses were more quickly noticed.

Michael Shnayerson
I’ve lost 12 inches in three weeks. Every time I go for the costume fitting each week, it’s smaller and smaller. I’m feeling great. I’m putting in the work. I’m getting a lot of sleep. Everything is on the backburner right now. ‘Dancing’ is my priority.

Ricki Lake
Fault‘ became the book everybody and their mother had to read, and ‘Paper Towns’ is one that’s beloved, but it’s a bit of a smaller book.

Wyck Godfrey
We need a smaller, leaner Washington. It won’t happen if we raise taxes without any coinciding reform and serious slashing of spending.

There is still some gravity where we are and even as far out as our moon. That is why our moon stays in orbit around the Earth. We don’t feel the gravity up here because it is so much smaller than the force we feel when we are on the Earth.

If I remember rightly Holland for instance has something like 45, and it’s a much smaller country. In comparison we have very few and they are very badly financed.

Wear clothes that fit. It’s the most important thing. Don’t just see something you like and automatically pick up a size 12 because that’s what you think you are. Try on the sizes bigger and smaller than what you expect to be, and buy what genuinely fits and feels most comfortable.

I rarely see one of the ‘summer blockbuster‘ movies. I’d like to see a stronger focus on smaller, smarter movies.

The world map looks smaller than ever before.

Max Azria
It seems like all the good looking people have smaller dogs these days. Especially for the women, because they always come in with their little Chihuahuas and the guys come in with their Golden Retrievers.

Elizabeth Perkins
A good pun may be admitted among the smaller excellencies of lively conversation.

James Boswell
If you have smaller eyes, you should choose a thinner brow that isn’t very dark in color. This will open the eyes.

I would like to do maybe a smaller romantic comedy.

Linda Fiorentino
Music is like the genius of humankind, universal… People who have never really taken the time to get into music, their lives are a lot smaller. Kids deserve the richness and dimension of it in their lives.

When you’re smaller and leaner, you’re not going to have that large a presence throughout the world.

If you’re making a smaller movie, you’re almost obligated to do something unexpected and surprising.

When you play in smaller places with a smaller symphony, sometimes there’s a difference in quality. Sometimes it’s murderous. Sometimes it’s real torture. Other times, you get a wonderful surprise. But there’s never a dull moment.

We already know that social security is more affordable in Scotland than it is in the rest of the U.K. – spending on social protection takes up a smaller share of our economic output and our tax revenues than is the case in the U.K. as a whole.

At one time, smaller, and story-heavy films were not appreciated much but exposure has made the audience aware of what great story-telling is. This has also ensured that the right actors are cast for the right kind of roles.

We spend as much time looking at companies that are smaller than we are as we do at those that are bigger.

Is a family just the strict definition of a small and discrete unit, or is it about the larger organic group that inevitably grows up around the smaller one?

I don’t know, I love it when I see movies with people who are not super familiar to me or people who I’ve seen in smaller parts who are suddenly getting a chance to do something bigger. For me that’s very exciting.

I’m not the fastest player, but you can’t really play up on me because my handles are good enough where I can get around you. But you can’t play off of me, because I can shoot. And if smaller guys try to defend me, I’ll back them down. I’m a good post player.

I just write notes all day on my phone, and when I write songs it becomes a patchwork of these smaller notes that I had, mixed with stuff in the moment.

Oddly enough, Asians are a much smaller ‘minority’ than African Americans in this country. But because Asians are so successful, college admission officers don’t feel sorry for them, so they are not a preferred ‘minority.’

There is not much danger of the smaller nations if the big nations will behave.

George William Norris
I was so much smaller before I had MS so I really struggle day to day to look in the mirror. I don’t feel I recognize myself because I’ve never been as big.

With the advent of technology the world has surely become a smaller place.

I know I did not play an 11-a-side match until I was 12; even beyond that, we tended to play smaller-sized matches on smaller pitches.

Eric Dier
Part of the greatness of being on the Island is it’s a smaller community; all of the players live within a couple miles of each other. It really promotes that family sort of atmosphere without being engulfed by the big city.

I think that kids who are at smaller schools or don’t have offers from big schools can look at my story and continue to work hard. I preach to them that it doesn’t matter where you come from: it matters how you play and how you apply yourself.

The ‘rock world’ is a lot smaller than it used to be. It’s doing a lot less things than it used to be. From Woodstock back in the day and Rage Against the Machine, no one sells millions of records anymore.

Austin Carlile
I feel like everyone has a preference. You have women who don’t like shorter guys. You have women who like taller guys. You have women who like heavier men. You have women who like smaller men. It’s the same thing with men. You have men who prefer lighter women and men who prefer darker women.

I’m one of those people that thinks the world changes in smaller and in more mysterious ways than a lot of people like to think. A lot of traditional charities and organizations do things that on the surface seem like a good idea, but it doesn’t change the way that people think about interacting with other people.

I admire artists who really take risks and aren’t afraid to do smaller movies and obscure, abstract things. It would be really cool if my career neared that.

Britne Oldford
If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people who are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants.

I do get a lot of facials because I think that when you don’t extract, your pores inevitably fill up more. I believe that facials keep your pores smaller.

I did some theatre. I had some smaller roles in a couple TV shows and films. I used to think I did a lot of acting, but my ‘career’ started when I started ‘Homeland’.

I think the original Matrix was really incredible. It was so original and it did so many innovative things with film. It was a much bigger film. Bound was just a smaller film. It was kind of like an old noir film.

Don’t let a lack of big company names on your resume get you down, but also, don’t let it feed a Silicon Valley ego. Oftentimes, the best candidates come from startups or smaller companies. It shows they are open to risk and can keep up with the long hours and occasional harsh demands.

Each year, therefore, a dollar spent on alcoholic beverages has purchased a smaller quantity.

When you’re fighting for an increasingly smaller portion of the pie, you turn against each other; you create reasons to hate each other.

The cardinal rule of taxation is that whatever you put a levy on, you’ll inevitably get less of. Taxing corporate activity means less investing, less hiring, fewer jobs and a smaller economy, which hurts the rich, the poor and the middle class alike.

One of my worries about America is the epidemic of depression we’ve been in. One of the possibilities about that is that the ‘I’ gets bigger and bigger, and the ‘we’ gets smaller and smaller.

In providing this $5,000 tax credit for those purchasing rural homes, we’re offering an important incentive to encourage people to live in smaller communities – and perhaps even stay in a community they might be considering leaving.

Because kids are physically smaller, there’s an assumption by people who haven‘t read a kids’ book for a long time that their ideas and themes and problems and ambitions must be commensurately smaller and less important. I would venture that sometimes the opposite is true.

It was always my intention to go with a smaller club. I reckoned I’d get more of a chance.

It is very tough in England. Every away game is hard, of course. And normally, if you’re a big club like Chelsea, you’re supposed to win games at home against smaller clubs. But in England, that’s not the case. We must play well every game.

Somebody accumulates a lot of muscle and think himself to be a big man. But this big man is only big when all around him are smaller.

It’s trite to say that the world has gotten smaller in the age of globalization, but my travels have told me that it’s wrong to think this means there is some kind of uniform world culture.

Norman Spinrad
For all it is a smaller country in terms of geography, Holland is the most closely aligned market to the U.K. in terms of trend. It is a big nation of card-makers and paper crafters, and Germany‘s market is at least five times larger than over here.

It’s one of my stronger points claiming high balls. I’m tall, so that helps me. If you’re a smaller goalkeeper, crosses in England are even harder.

Being in a smaller environment – sometimes I like that. As a comic, we start off in comedy clubs, and there are people right at your feet, right on top of you. And I realize, as I get older, I miss that sometimes.

When I post a photo from a ‘good angle,’ I receive criticism for looking smaller and selling out. When I post photos showing my cellulite, stretch marks, and rolls, I’m accused of promoting obesity.

I feel like big men don’t like it when they’re getting fronted by smaller guys and they just staying real, real aggressive.

For basically three years, I was doing ‘Catfish‘ and ‘We Are Your Friends’ at the same time – it was like straddling two very long-term creative marriages. And when you’re in a long-term creative commitment, you tend to daydream and fantasize about smaller creative flings that you want to have.

Tournaments are won by aggressively going after smaller pots with a range of starting hands. The trick is learning how to do that without becoming reckless.

I’m not a ‘messiah‘ coming to change Washington. I don’t come with a political background, so I think it’s part of my responsibility to raise my hand and say ‘Why?’ Folks don’t just want smaller government; they want an efficient small government.

Many dinosaurs were smaller than chickens.

The Soyuz is probably only slightly smaller than the Dragon.

People and companies make mistakes. I guarantee we’ll make a mistake next quarter. So what? Businesses make mistakes. Hopefully smaller, and fewer.

As with the factory, so with the office: in an assembly line, the smaller the piece of work assigned to any single individual, the less skill it requires, and the less likely the possibility that doing it well will lead to doing something more interesting and better paid.

I have talked about the ‘fractal organization’. Those smaller pieces should innovate and lead the rest of the organization. There will be parts that will be thinking about technologies of the future, and you need to nourish them.

Working on ‘Downton Abbey’ is amazing, but there’s an ensemble cast of between 18 and 21 actors. With ‘Love Life,’ there are two couples and a few other key characters. As a smaller unit, you’ve got to take more responsibility – at the same time, you can have more ownership of the direction it’s going in.

I continue to see a healthy PC market, very healthy. The machines will continue to morph; you’ll see smaller machines that have more capability.

Jim Allchin
It always seemed mad to me that people who have common investment objectives, let alone are related to each other, should take their capital and allow it to be less efficient by breaking it up into smaller bits.

In states where there’s one really big city, a lot of outlying counties and smaller towns really don’t have very many resources.

Investment is crucial but it’s just the start. You look at some of the nations that have massive budgets but don’t perform, then there are smaller nations who don’t have massive budgets and can still get a reasonable medal count.

This office is smaller than the last one I had. I’m not trying to impress people. I want to be close to them.

While designing, sewing and cutting patterns for clients, my mother was always telling me to make sure the upper part of the body was balanced with the lower part, an A-line skirt to minimize hips or shoulder pads if a client was smaller on top. I was training my eye to create balance.

We need a solution for European football. You need to help smaller clubs in European competitions get the right distribution of money so they can invest in coaches and attract talent for the level they can play at.

As I get older, I get smaller. I see other parts of the world I didn’t see before. Other points of view. I see outside myself more.

I know the ‘big spending club v. smaller club’ theme is popular in the Premier League. I don’t think about it – we are 30 teams trying to win the championship, and you do what you need to do.

In Europe and FIBA, the game is a little slower and the court is a little smaller.

Toronto is like a smaller, safe New York.

I have a saying: I try to make the world smaller by making the party bigger.

I lived for big waves. It’s where I felt comfortable and I could surf with ease. With smaller waves, it didn’t feel as natural.

Since 9/11 we have somehow come to accept the ‘radicalization’ narrative, which basically holds that people become terrorists through a series of consecutive, traceable steps laid out for them by large international Islamic organizations. Reality is messier, and also smaller.

What we won’t become is a ‘Democratic Party lite!’ We are a party that wants smaller government and lower taxes. Obama and the Democrats do not. We are a party that wants to encourage small business. We are a party that has a large constituent group that believes in a social agenda and we will not abandon them.

Ed Rollins
I think you have to be a niche player. You’ve got to find smaller ideas that are going to benefit in the conditions as they are. You can change the conditions and always try to find ways to make money in the conditions as they exist.

Jim Oberweis
I like to have fewer players. That way, everyone is plugged into what you’re doing. There is a risk attached to that sometimes but it’s good to have a smaller squad. People have more chance of playing; they’re ready and more motivated. Having 18 real players is better than having 25 or 26 not playing.

Some films really do take years to get going, but I’d say that most of the films I want to do are slightly smaller projects. Some could be sketches. They’re not all oil paintings.

By the time we get to the 2040s, we’ll be able to multiply human intelligence a billionfold. That will be a profound change that’s singular in nature. Computers are going to keep getting smaller and smaller. Ultimately, they will go inside our bodies and brains and make us healthier, make us smarter.

With every job I’ve gotten, I’ve bought myself something. When ‘Glee‘ was picked up, I rented a piano for the year. For smaller victories, I’ll go to dinner with a friend, or go for a walk and think about it all. It’s important to say to yourself, Today was a good day.

Smaller government, more individual responsibility, more individual control creates more Republicans. More state power and ownership and control and top-down decision-making creates more Democrats.

Taller people get very competitive. When I meet someone who’s close to me or taller, I’m straight up; I don’t wanna be smaller than them.

I always try to start out with some type of goal. Then I work backward and think of what I need to do to get there, and give myself smaller goals that are more immediate.

Australia is the same size as the U.S., but it’s much smaller in terms of population. I’ve been working in the States off and on since the ’80s, and the first time I played a lead here was in ’91, I think.

Robert Taylor
He who attends to his greater self becomes a great man, and he who attends to his smaller self becomes a small man.

I think unadulterated products and smaller portion sizes mean consumption of less food overall. Portion is everything. The first time I bought a scoop of ice cream in Paris, they weighed the ice cream on a scale before putting it on the cone. It was so small, it fell into the cone as she handed it to me.

I don’t see it as a disability. I’m just a normal person, but a bit smaller than everyone else.

More debt interest, higher taxes, a smaller GDP. That is the Liberal plan.

Selecting what gets sold in smaller shops and online is a long and artful process, it takes precision and care. The people who stock the successful vintage shops are great buyers, and you pay for their skill as well as the quality level at which they sell their clothes.

It’s glamorous when a movie is released, but then you feel disconnected from it. Someone asked if it wouldn’t be more glamorous for me being on Broadway rather than Off Broadway, but I thought, ‘What’s the difference?’ The Orpheum is a smaller house, that’s all. And there are no mikes, so you just talk louder.

Brooke Adams
It is nice to be out there, amongst contemporaries on a global scale. You meet different people, see different things, meet different producers, eventually grow to collaborate in different ways. The world is getting smaller. It’s nice not to be insular.

Dick Armey is an economic conservative. He is not a social conservative. He doesn’t like to talk about marriage and about the unborn child, the sanctity of life and things like that. He wants to talk about smaller government.

I have the impression that the women around me are like me – smaller, taller, fatter, thinner – but in fact, we are all the same.

Coming from a smaller place always made things feel more personal, which is really what it’s all about.

Many of the smaller banks have had to get to the point where they now have more compliance people than they have lending offices. That’s crazy.

I had this chronic hyperactivity and an inability to focus, so I was forever being moved to another class, with a much smaller group of children – some of them about 18. If I was asked to read a paragraph, this white wall would go up in my head. Still now, I read very slowly and can rarely work out a tip.

I’m a New Yorker now, and believe me, there’s no comparison between the Big Apple and Kalamazoo, no similarity at all. New York City’s hectic, always in fast-forward, and Kalamazoo’s more laid-back, smaller, slower.

But I can’t stress enough how much talking helps. I was so reluctant at first; I didn’t think it would help. But even if there’s no answer to your troubles, they will seem so much smaller once they leave your head.

OK, I wasn’t as successful as, say, Julia Roberts, but I’d spent years in a very respectable career, some big American films but a host of other smaller, really exciting, maybe experimental films, being paid rubbish but working with fine people, that was what I thought I was known for.

Joely Richardson
Being a smaller, nimbler company is better for our customers, employees and shareholders.

Gambling has brought our family together. We had to move to a smaller house.

Tommy Cooper
Throughout high school, I was made fun of a lot. I was a lot smaller than the other kids, and I have a big gap in my teeth. I had pretty bad acne. So I struggled with that.

There is still a big gap between South America and Europe and Asia, and if we had more players playing in Europe, the gap would be smaller.

As a youth, I and most of the other smarter kids in school got picked on by bullies. I was a big guy – even at a young age – and would take the beatings for my friends, who were often smaller and scrawnier.

The Awa are a distinctive-looking, diminutive forest people, smaller than any of the dozen other Amazon tribespeople I have met. Reduced size is adaptive in a rain forest. You can move around more easily and unobtrusively. Not only humans but other species are smaller in rain forests.

The 1970s – I was ten in 1975 – were a bad decade in all sorts of ways but the middle class had comfortable assumptions about the prospects for its children. The middle class was smaller then; it was a much less competitive Britain, less meritocratic.

I face the camera every day as a student as there is a lot to learn. You become an actor when you put emphasis on smaller details.

While globalization will make the world smaller and more accessible, we must continue to appreciate its vibrant diversity.

I love playing with a full band, but there’s just like a different feeling up on stage when you’re playing with a smaller group. It’s easier to play off each other.

I feel like I come from a smaller off shoot of black people because I am mixed. People say I’m African American but that doesn’t include the other half of me.

Maya Rudolph
Just because we’re plus size, doesn’t mean we have to prove that we’re healthy, just as someone who is smaller than us or average size doesn’t have to prove they are healthy.

It was so much easier to connect with my fans when I was smaller. I could answer every message, and I enjoyed doing that.

After the bones mended, my left eye was smaller than my right, and my eyebrow never grew back. But you know what? Big deal. I think I became beautiful after the accident. I became kinder, more aware. I gained respect for other people.

Splitting your meals up into smaller, more frequent portions will enable food absorption and utilization of nutrients.

Many classrooms are overcrowded, and splitting the class into smaller groups gives the children more one on one attention.

If you choose as a woman to work in cinema, the roles are smaller, not as diverse, and sometimes not as exciting. So when you try to have a conversation to say, ‘This part is lacking in this or that,’ or, ‘I don’t understand who this person is,’ or, ‘Why is she in this story?’ people are very afraid of that.

My partner, Beth Alexander, and I want to produce smaller films, but commercially viable films that will enable me to make the kinds of movies I want to make.

We have table reads for every episode of ‘Billions.’ The core cast is smaller than the core cast on ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ so in that sense, it has more of a theater vibe.

One reason the Founding Fathers thought that states should have two senators was so that smaller states wouldn’t get run over and could bring their interests to the attention of the Senate more broadly.

Killing animals and eating meat have been significant components of human evolution that had a synergistic relationship with other key attributes that have made us human, with larger brains, smaller guts, bipedalism, and language.

I don’t think anyone just becomes something overnight. I think it’s many, many hours in the dark, there’s all that time that people don’t see you doing smaller things or struggling along. Then suddenly you get a break and people are like, ‘He came out of nowhere!’

Karl Glusman
I have smaller hands, so it’s nice being a littler guy, having a guitar that fits my body type.

But I like the small places myself. I mean, you know you can really feel it, and for me the music just goes really well in the smaller places.

Pegi Young
On the whole, books are indeed less finite than ourselves. Even the worst among them outlast their authorsmainly because they occupy a smaller amount of physical space than those who penned them. Often they sit on the shelves absorbing dust long after the writer himself has turned into a handful of dust.

What Bharat Natyam has taught me is to appreciate the smaller things in life.

The future of TV is not on TV. It’s on the smaller screens we are all using in front of the television set.

I think the world’s a little smaller these days. With the Internet and the availability of people, the pool of English speaking actors – not just American actors, but Brits, Australians, New Zealanders, Irish. We’re all up for grabs.

So basically, you know, the first day on the job you get there and you realize everybody has a Nerf gun. They had, you know, the smaller ones that shoot the darts. So part of the rite of passage of coming to the company is you have to get your own.

Mark Rober
There is no object so large but that at a great distance from the eye it does not appear smaller than a smaller object near.

A 300pp novel can easily become a 200pp novel by printing with smaller type; a 100pp screenplay can potentially become a film of between 60-140 minutes in length; a 200pp stage play could be performed in anything from 30 minutes to four hours. For all these media, the script length is agnostic to the final work.

When all is said and done and the e-book is written about politics and the Internet, it is not going to be about the presidential election. It will be about the smaller elections in aggregate that have a huge effect on people’s lives.

The most powerful thing we can do is get involved locally. Help our local community and become community activists in our own smaller circle.

I’m lucky that I get to do the bigger movies and the smaller movies.

I’d be absolutely happy to go back and make a smaller picture. I never want my choices to be dictated by budget. That’s one of the reasons why I take so much pride in being able to make films for $2 and a paper clip – because I can always get my hands on $2 and a paper clip. I never have to ask for permission for that.

Because Comic Con in San Diego is crazy, and it’s very commercialized, and it’s corporate, and it’s all about money and selling, selling, selling… I think people want to go to smaller, specialized cons.

Liberals want the government to get bigger, and they want you to drive smaller cars, and they want to dictate the way you live.

After about 1940, scientists generally stopped looking for elements in nature. Instead, they had to create them by smashing smaller atoms together.

I believe that in music and in a lot of things it’s kind of like surfing, you can have a really big wave sometimes and then you can have a smaller wave.

As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.

I don’t think of myself as a small receiver, but you can’t control what somebody says about you. It hasn’t held me back – actually, I think I’ve changed the perception of smaller receivers.

Smaller films that have a great run at the festivals usually result in the audience promoting the film on social media and so on.

What I’ve seen around the world is if the regulatory desires are combined with things that affect consumer behavior – such as in Europe, they tax gasoline very heavily – you do get people to move to very fuel efficient cars; trade off bigger vs. smaller cars.

Rick Wagoner
You do need to edit yourself as you shoot because you have fewer options in a smaller movie. In other words, when I’m shooting a big movie, and I got an 85 day shooting schedule or more, then I’m saying I have enough time to shoot option A and B and C and D for every scene.

David Twohy
Ronald Reagan‘s vision of smaller government, less taxes, and a strong national defense has led to a prosperous America. As president, he rebuilt our military and reinvigorated our confidence in ourselves.

David Vitter
War made my everyday problems seem much smaller, and when it is hard sometimes, I just remember that it could be much worse.

The smaller races were where you made your money.

I’m a lot smaller than most guys, so I have to make up with grittiness and show I can work the hardest, show I’m strong on my skates and show I can push some people around.

I think, bottom line, I have to be good enough to make the team. I have to bring something in and beat somebody else out, especially with a smaller roster for the Olympics.

The more of your private life you put into the public domain, the smaller your private life becomes.

I’d rather have a smaller following of really cool people who get it, who will grow with us as we grow and are fans for life, than people that have us in their five-disc changer with Reba McEntire and Toby Keith.

There are about a dozen of these gardens, more or less extensive, according to the business or wealth of the proprietor; but they are generally smaller than the smallest of our London nurseries.

Further ahead, I’d like to see tiny spacebots – smaller than your cell phone – travel outside our solar system to the nearest star system, Alpha Centauri. By keeping the mass of those spacebots low, we could more easily accelerate them.

Sometimes, the smaller roles in movies can be the most interesting. If you only take the stance that you’ll only play central characters in movies, you’ll find yourself not being able to indulge in that morally grey terrain that makes support characters so rich and interesting.

I’m against the draft. I believe we should have a professional military; it might be smaller, but it would be more effective.

Well I grew up following most of the major titles like ‘Fantastic Four,’ ‘Spider-Man,’ ‘Avengers,’ etc. But I had also a lot of love for the smaller titles like ‘Master of Kung Fu,’ ‘Black Panther,’ ‘The Defenders,’ ‘Inhumans,’ and of course Power-Man and Iron Fist.’

People think that just because you’re a center, you’re not as smart as the guards or the smaller guys.

Patrick Ewing
It’s always good to get a smaller tournament under your belt so that by the time you get to the Slams, you have a lot of experience.

The central idea of string theory is quite straightforward. If you examine any piece of matter ever more finely, at first you’ll find molecules, atoms, sub-atomic particles. Probe the smaller particles, you’ll find something else, a tiny vibrating filament of energy, a little tiny vibrating string.

I’ve been rich; I’ve been poor. I’ve been successful; I’ve been decimated. And the way I felt inside didn’t change dramatically. It’s less stressful to have money, that’s for sure. But that doesn’t mean I felt fulfilled. So I’ve learned to live in the smaller moments of life.

I do like to hang out in the corner and keep my eye on the party, or be outside in a smaller group.

Warren Buffett pays taxes on a smaller percentage of his billions in income than his cleaning lady.

The smaller the planets are, they are, other things being equal, of so much the greater density; for so the powers of gravity on their several surfaces come nearer to equality. They are likewise, other things being equal, of the greater density, as they are nearer to the sun.

I love the smaller clubs. I love the theaters. I love the festivals. There are things I don’t like. At certain theaters, people can’t get up and dance.

Younger writers and smaller writers need to live and get by. They need to be paid. It has to be fair.

You can’t expect to connect with everybody, and that’s all right. The more I make films, I’m learning that you don’t have to make films for everybody. A film can be made for a smaller group of people than that, and it still warrants an existence.

Since the Columbia accident, the Russian space agency, or the Russian space program, has been literally carrying the load bringing us all the supplies we need on the Progress vehicle, smaller amounts on the Soyuz vehicles.

John L Phillips
We were looking almost one-tenth of the way to the edge of the universe. We’re planning to use the facilities we have to make improvements by another factor of 10… a strain sensitivity that is 10 times smaller. This means looking 10 times further out into the universe.

During a game, it comes down to your mind – the pressure. There are loads of other aspects, too. Many people say taking penalties is easy, but when you’re stood over one, that’s not the case. It’s in no way easy. The goal really does become a lot smaller.

Francesco Totti
When you’re young, you might not be ready to deal with the frustration of playing the big guys and dealing with their power. But we move better, we see the ball earlier, we can play faster. That’s why you see smaller guys able to compete. We use the power of our opponent.

By making bold cuts in spending and commonsense entitlement reforms, we will make our government simpler, smaller, and smarter.

I have always worked consistently, even in small ways and even in smaller theaters where I’ll do One Acts or something.

For X-rays, the phenomenon of diffraction by crystals was a natural consequence of the idea that X-rays are waves analogous to light and differ from it only by having a smaller wavelength.

Louis de Broglie
You know, when Republicans were in charge, we doubled the debt. But, now, our concern is the Democrats are in charge and they’re tripling the debt. So, really, our concern is that we want smaller government.

Environmentalists have been outspoken in their support of smaller family size and abortion rights as keys to reducing global warming. But when it comes to immigration, the single biggest contributor to population growth in the industrial world, they stand largely silent.

In comparison to other women in the world, perhaps I’m seen as smaller. But I’ve never had a problem thinking of myself as a large woman.

What has helped me is my success in commercial cinema. It has given me a platform for others to cast me in their films. If I did not have the commercial success, then I wouldn’t be able to do the smaller films.

As soon as you’re locking doors, you’re narrowing your circle. And your circle gets smaller and smaller until it’s finally just yourself and your buddy and you’ve got no one to party with.

There’s a lot of people who think in order to be a good head coach, you’ve got to be a head coach at a smaller school.

The higher the voice the smaller the intellect.

Ernest Newman
The thing about Jiu Jitsu is it is also not for everybody. It can be very humiliating and humbling. If you have a hard time dealing with the fact that someone smaller than you may be able to tap you out, it is going to be difficult.

I liked being in a smaller theater. I love doing shows of all sizes, but sometimes it’s nice to be in a smaller space and to strip away some of the music so that you can be a little less than larger-than-life; you can be a little more naturalistic.

Max von Essen
The moments that I feel a huge sense of accomplishment are actually the smaller moments, not really the bigger ones, the televised ones.

As a government watchdog, I’m always looking for ways to make government smaller, more efficient, and fairer.

I understood my path and what I meant to the game and what I mean to kids. Not only kids, but individuals around the world. Folks that didn’t think that the game was meant for smaller people. For me, I always felt that, tall or small, the game was for all.

But there’s still an avenue for smaller comics and personal expression.

I prefer to explore the most intimate moments, the smaller, crystallized details we all hinge our lives on.

The larger your audience, the smaller your vocabulary and range of referents – the fewer your means of expression. You can’t rely on the luxury of intimacy.

People with banking experience haven’t all flocked to the biggest banks; community banks and regional banks, along with smaller trading houses and credit unions, have some very talented people.

Ballet is incestuous. This world is smaller than small.

Cars have a large engine in the front and you have a gearbox, which is cumbersome. Electric cars don’t have this problem. The motor is much smaller, the battery is below you. This will allow you to play with different shapes.

When you play guitar and strum, you’re using biceps and triceps to move up and down. I realized you could just turn your wrist, your forearm, using smaller muscles in your arm that are much more efficient and much quicker.

I hope it’s always going to be a mix between theatre, film and radio. I’ve been very lucky living in London that you can do all that – in New York and L.A., there’s more of a structure for film in L.A. and theatre in New York. In London, our industry is smaller, but it produces brilliant work all in one place.

Paul Ryan says he’s for smaller government, and he’s funded every big government idea that there is.

The value in having bigs that have the ability to shoot from the perimeter has increased and having bigs that have the defensive versatility to not only protect the rim, but to switch out and defend smaller guards, the value of that has also increased.

I prefer the smaller acting than big histrionics. It’s about reacting and looks, which is often underestimated.

I think, in a lot of ways, it’s easier to play a smaller room. You can exploit the quieter dynamics you would shy away from in larger venues.

At some of my earliest shows, we used to roll up 20 deep – if my mates can’t come in, I can’t come in. My record label couldn’t understand it: plus-19 on the guestlist?! But that was how it was. Over the years – as it is with everyone, but amplified from being in the public – it’s got smaller and smaller.

The best engineered organisms can outpace others, even if they start smaller or later.

I guess the line between being paranoid and being a rock star is smaller than one would expect.

Brian Molko
As long as we can make them smaller, we can make them faster.

Seymour Cray
I’d been writing my own coming-of-age story, and I got to take a lot of that energy and a lot of those moments and themes that I wanted to explore in a much smaller film and then apply them to ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming.’

Seeing bigger guys doesn’t scare me at all. It just makes me want to compete against those guys. Bigger or smaller guys – it doesn’t matter.

I think that no one, or very few, are born as good presenters. It’s a skill that you learn. The key is the 10/20/30 rule: 10 slides given in 20 minutes using no font smaller than 30 points. If people just adhered to this rule, they would double or triple the quality of their presentations.

Sometimes I get the feeling the whole world is against me, but deep down I know that’s not true. Some of the smaller countries are neutral.

The one thing the Victorians really believed in was philanthropy. I think we’ve forgotten the obligation to be philanthropic. I think we need smaller government, but I want to make it clear I’m not the Sarah Palin of the Cotswolds.

I’m like LeBron, man. I’m like a smaller LeBron. That’s why I’m not in the NBA. If I had about five, six more inches, I’d be in the league.

If cheap immigrant labor is made unavailable, employers can hire Americans at a higher wage, or replace low-wage immigrant workers with technology and automation, which will create a smaller number of skilled jobs for Americans.

Deep Purple was sinking with Ritchie. We were playing to quarter houses in Europe, which is one of our strongest territories – in Germany. Smaller venues, and they weren’t even full. So had we continued that way, and had Ritchie not walked out, we would have finished; that would have been the end of it.

Wrestling used to be land of the giants and I think MMA has opened he door for smaller, more athletic competitors to climb up the card in wrestling and be top draws and main event.

I don’t think smaller guys usually bother me on my shot too much.

I wish my hair was thicker, and I wish my feet were prettier. My toes are really ugly. I wish my ears were smaller. And my nose could be smaller too.

In the U.S. box-office driven industry, if you want to do a smaller personal film, you have to find your own financing.

It’s quite different, the kind of love you get in a smaller club and the kind of love you get on a big proscenium stage. It’s quite different. I like both of them, but I’m in love with the smaller, intimate club.

Nickolas Ashford
You educate a boy, and he’ll have fewer children, but it’s a small effect. You educate a girl, and, on average, she will have a significantly smaller family.

For my own part I think no innocent species of wit or pleasantry should be suppressed: and that a good pun may be admitted among the smaller excellencies of lively conversation.

James Boswell
I think, with ‘St. Nick,’ when you’re working with a smaller budget, you have fewer risks involved. You’re able to take chances with style and content.

We can make a commitment to promote vegetables and fruits and whole grains on every part of every menu. We can make portion sizes smaller and emphasize quality over quantity. And we can help create a culture – imagine this – where our kids ask for healthy options instead of resisting them.

We had several hits in the States but probably only one big one in Europe. The crowds are smaller.

Huey Lewis
I used to be smaller than I am now, and it didn’t make my life any easier. It’s not really about your body. It’s about what’s going on inside, in your head and your heart.

Molly Tarlov
I am a believer in smaller government, limited government, less regulation, less taxes, because I think to have more of those things, we suffocate the entrepreneurial spirit of this nation.

Hyperloop One wants to make the world one, wants to make the world smaller.

In terms of smaller changes over time, I think good plays are like poems. Every syllable counts. So I wrestle with word choice, rhythm in final drafts.

I had neck surgery and I’m not freaking stupid. I get that my window is smaller than it was and my bump card is ticking.

I was a big fan of Chris Benoit growing up. I was always a fan of usually the, I guess you can say the smaller, more athletic guys, I was a big fan of Mark Henry, but was more gravitated towards the cruiserweight type of guys.

Cedric Alexander
Supporting and publicising the campaigns of smaller unions pressures bosses to accept workers’ demands.

I think one of the most beautiful things about YouTube is that it makes the world a smaller place. You realize that we’re all different, but we’re all the same. And if you think about it, it’s a beautiful concept.

I typically, with my work, like to approach it in a bigger way. That’s sort of how I am. And I remember when I was getting into television, the handcuff that gets put on you right away, especially when you’re a theater kid, is, ‘Be smaller, be smaller, be smaller.’

When you have the smaller guards – whether it be 6 feet, 6-2, 6-1, or under – they’re the most energetic, and they set the pace, whether it be shoot-around, practice, and in the game.

In turning from the smaller instruments in frequent use to the larger and more important machines, the economy arising from the increase of velocity becomes more striking.

I wish I was agile like Spider-Man and everything we do that draws on the childhood inspirations and the adulthood inspirations, for that matter. They’re definitely the reason how I am, how I am today, because I was a smaller kid who was a nerd.

We see a transformation of warfare from the big armies and battlefields in open spaces to a fragmentation of armed groups and smaller armies, which move into city centres, which increasingly become the theatre of warfare.

Don’t get me wrong, I am a proud Republican, and I want to support my party. I am a firm believer in the Republican principles of smaller government, low taxes and economic freedom. I have spent my time in government service fighting for these principles.

David Schweikert
A small pay discrepancy between men’s and women’s salaries for the same job may seem inconsequential. But over the years, salary discrimination adds up to a significantly smaller pension.

I’m just saying sometimes great to play smaller court, with the crowd very close. We can feel their energy, the passion, yeah, the love in it. I love it, to be honest. It’s great.

I felt really lucky that ‘Hairstyles Of The Damned’ and ‘The Boy Detective Fails‘ were both bestsellers, and I thought that donating the money from ‘Demons‘ was a good way to respond to that. My favorite artists are the ones that are willing to experiment, even if it means a smaller audience.

Joe Meno
When I do stand-up for a long time, I’ll get burned out, then I’ll get an acting gig. For me, the grass is always greener. I’d like to do a mixture of all of it. My goal is just to do small movies that I’ve written. That’s what I’m trying to do now, just write smaller movies.

People often say that they want to move away to smaller cities for a better lifestyle and peace, but as a single girl, you need your society, your neighbour, and even passersby to give you some respect.

Black liner around the eye makes your eyes look smaller. I think you should reassess, if you’re a really big black liner user, maybe even just doing the top line, not lower, or try a brown or a plum or even a navy.

The work that is truly productive is the domain of a steadily smaller and more elite fraction of humanity.

Vernor Vinge
I don’t want to lose my accent, I just want it to become smaller.

Goran Visnjic
The problem with a lot of marketing advice is that the examples they use are not exactly typical. It’s hard for businesses, particularly smaller businesses, to relate to the bold innovations of companies like Apple or Tesla.

History has shown that there needs to be some agora, or public spaces, and I think that we already live a lot of our life on a laptop, or even smaller devices that we hold in our hands.

Most journalists now believe that a person’s privacy zone gets smaller and smaller as the person becomes more and more powerful.

Roger Mudd
Now if you are condemned to life on welfare, I’m not so sure that being in a bigger welfare village is that much better than being in a smaller welfare village.

‘Tis very great pity that they who are so apt to over-rate themselves in smaller matters, shou’d, where it most concerns them to know, and stand upon their Value, be so insensible of their own worth.

For someone like me, if I ever had huge success or whatever that is, I would just play smaller venues two to three nights in a row just to keep the intimacy level there and that’s my take on it, but it just depends what you’re going for.

I stated that I’m a libertarian Republican, which means I believe in a series of issues, such as smaller government, constraint on budget deficits, free markets, globalization, and a whole series of other things, including welfare reform.

I have always believed that against smaller teams is when you can give others a chance to get some runs and gain some confidence.

I was always smaller than the rest coming up at Coventry, and I developed physically more in the later stages.

We can be just as safe with a smaller, more efficient nuclear arsenal at less cost.

All kinds of physical considerations become senseless when we try to apply them to distances smaller than 10 -13 centimeter.

George Gamow
‘Community’ gets to be the indie movie, while a ‘Modern Family’ gets to be the big blockbuster release. They service that big massive audience, and we service a smaller audience. But we get a lot of creative freedom.

We think there’s a huge opportunity in smaller vehicles. Smaller vehicles done in an American way.

Freeman Thomas
That seemed to be the case with most of the teams based in the smaller towns – the fans were more rabid, and they wanted to literally kill the opposition.

Bob Cousy
Women are all the same; we want to be smaller in the waist, longer legs, slimmer. I design for women and their defects, to make them better.

They do say, the smaller the feet, the better the dancer.

I am still interested in the long or serial poem, but have written a few smaller things. I may start sending to journals again in a year or so… that’s about it.

George Murray
So, you need to balance it out with bigger and smaller movies.

Wolfsburg might be a smaller club when you look at reputations and I thought about it long and hard. I could have stayed at Chelsea. Mourinho told me that I would get my chance. You have to make a decision, though, and in the end I only wanted to play football again.

Because most startups are lean and scrappy organizations consisting of a limited number of people and supported by an even smaller number of resources, startups cannot afford to have any slackers on board. When you fail, you cause an ‘epic failure,’ and when you win, everyone in the company knows about it.

They like to match giants against smaller guys in Japan, so I’d like to fight a heavier opponent. I’d like this type of fight, against a stronger opponent.

The world is still changing. Faster than ever. And so should the Republican Party. Or condemn itself to a smaller and smaller base of core supporters and permanent minority status.

When a young writer comes up to me with an ambitious idea for a 20-book series, I usually tell him to maybe try something smaller to start off with.

Jim Butcher
It’s hard being on a new network, a smaller network.

Donald Trump won, or he got the majority of the electoral votes, a large majority. I think it would be patronizing to say that the majorities of people in Florida and Ohio, smaller majorities in Wisconsin and Michigan, that they voted for him because they were misled by something on Facebook.

Whenever possible, buy a fish whole. With tuna, this isn’t practical; with smaller fish, it is.

The smaller the head, the bigger the dream.

Austin O’Malley
The process of radiation may be, and is, continuous – at any rate within limits extending to far smaller quantities than the quantum.

Charles Glover Barkla
I’m just honoring my mother’s words. She always told me, ‘The smaller your work, the bigger your name will become.’

Willard Wigan
I’d rather do smaller theaters, because it’s more fun for the audience and more fun for me. I like to build up demand.

Over the last few years, the world has become a smaller and more integrated place with technology that is leveling the playing field like never before.

How you eat is as important as what you eat. If I eat mindlessly while watching television, I get all of the calories and none of the pleasure. Instead, if I eat mindfully, paying attention and savoring what I’m eating, smaller portions of food can be exquisitely satisfying.

I love hotels. I generally prefer smaller boutique hotels to large chains, especially when attention and wit has been given to interesting design elements and beautiful bathrooms.

Technology has already opened the door a bit wider for filmmakers, with smaller digital cameras making production less cumbersome. Social media is allowing self-distribution, and girl groups like Spark Summit are leading the way in calling for fewer Photoshop image alterations of girls in print media.

Sharon Lawrence
I made ‘Enemy‘ to prep myself for ‘Prisoners.’ I had the need to direct something smaller in English before going to Hollywood. That’s the way I sold it to Warner because they asked me if I was berserk to make a movie right before.

Those of us who live in Mumbai or Delhi have notions about what women who live in Bhopal, or smaller towns, are like; and that perception is wrong. Some people are scared by how complex and subversive these women’s lives can be.

The homes I like the best are totally occupied, busy, and useful, whether it’s a tiny little house or a great big one. Rarely do you find a great big house that’s used in a good way. So I prefer smaller spaces that are full of books, full of things that people are doing.

As a rough rule of thumb, I would say the smaller the pond, the more belligerent the fish.

If you’re a comedian, you can change peoples lives for the better in much smaller increments – not their entire life, but for 15 minutes or a half hour.

Sometimes at 155 pounds I was the smaller fighter, at 145 pounds I am more often the bigger fighter, and the taller fighter.

When we introduced 10-and-under tennis – when we shortened the courts and had smaller rackets and low-compression balls for trying to introduce the sport to youth – a lot of people said we weren’t going to succeed.

Australia is a smaller country and the industry works differently over there. You get added to one radio station in Australia, and you pretty much get added across the board.

The Stones always tried to do the odd smaller gig when they could.

Bill Wyman
If you’re going to be a media brand and not just a linear television brand, then you have to make sure you’re speaking to all women and all interests, so it may mean that you end up smaller audiences serving individual pieces of content, but the aggregate is what’s important and what we’re paying attention to.

I will be busy playing, getting in shape, and learning English, and being in a smaller town will help me do that. And I want the challenge of trying to get Bolton into Europe for the first time in their history.

Don’t overstate Fox News. It’s still much smaller than the least of the network niches.

I like the brand Band of Outsiders. Their suits are cut really slim, for smaller framed gentlemen.

Over the last six years, airlines have experienced severe financial pressure to leave smaller communities, making demands on the EAS program even greater.

I’ve been on record many times in the past about the challenge of being competitive with NBA teams in smaller markets.

Little kids who get picked on and bullied can relate to the Lucha Dragons, who are smaller, but they’re quick and exciting and never give up.

It’s interesting – Pluto‘s almost a brand unto itself. It’s the farthest. It’s the most diminutive of the classical planets. It’s been maligned by astronomers. It’s always the one with all the question marks in the back of the textbook in the table. I think children identify with it because it’s smaller, kind of cute.

When I was smaller, I always looked up to Zidane, Messi, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo.

I have worn things that are too tight, and I’ve learned over the years that just because the size on the tag says something smaller doesn’t mean it looks good on you.

Before the L.A. riots, I’d only heard of the original Watts riots. But I’d also seen violence like that close up, but in smaller scenarios.

It’s a different style of golf; that stands out for sure when you come over to America. The style of play and the golf courses in America. Most golf courses in America either stretch your game, and test different elements of your game and the margins for error are smaller.

I think to do a proper independent movie, in my experience, it takes 22 or 23 days to shoot. That was ‘Party Girl’ or ‘House of Yes.’ But now with the digital camera, the budgets have gotten smaller, and the days have gotten shorter.

When we were a smaller company, Facebook login was widely adopted, and the growth rate for it has been quite quick. But in order to get to the next level and become more ubiquitous, it needs to be trusted even more.

Enjoying outdoor recreation is not only good for physical health, but also for improving mental health, and I encourage everyone to explore some of the beautiful opportunities our state has to offer, particularly at those smaller, less explored state parks.

The Big Bang theory is the idea that if we go back early enough in the history of the universe – and we can do this, of course, by looking at starlight coming to us from billions of years ago – we will see a very hot and dense period where the universe was much smaller, denser, and hotter.

We are being entertained all the time – in the bathroom, on the train, in our beds. Sure, there is a smaller audience for theater. But we know from radio that entertainment never goes away, it just changes. And more power to it.

I don’t care what people call me, labels have the negative value of making smaller boundaries for people.

I love films. It’s really funny, actually. Like, I see a lot of smaller movies. But a lot of these big, epic films that everyone’s like, ‘You have to see,’ I haven’t watched yet.

I’m kind of a smaller guy in my given profession, and people always told me I’m too small, so I know how it feels to have people tell you you’ll never be anything.

The CCP has become the political incarnation of the deadly coronavirus, infecting the world with illegal trade practices, arm twisting smaller nations, debt – a.k.a deathtraps and sinister imperialist ambition.

When the first armies were formed, combat took courage, which women share equally with men, and strength, which we do not. But though I am only 4 feet 7 inches tall, with a gun in my hand I am the equal of a soldier who’s 6 feet 7 – perhaps even at a slight advantage, as I make a smaller target.

The higher up the rugby ladder you go, the differences between winning and losing games get smaller and smaller.

The ordinary American – as far as I can tell – knows so much less than he did fifty years ago and has such poor work habits compared with fifty years ago that the average multiplicand of knowledge/capabilities is a much smaller number than it was in 1961.

If you thought the advent of the Internet, the spread of cheap and efficient information technology, and the growing fragmentation of the consumer market were all going to help smaller companies thrive at the expense of the slow-moving giants of the Fortune 500, apparently you were wrong.

I think that because television is shot on a really fast schedule, and it gets piped into your home on a smaller screen, it’s much more about character and dialogue in a lot of cases than the movies are.

As we move towards 8 or 10 billion people on the planet, there’s a little less gold per capita. Each one of us will continue to be fighting over an ever smaller percentage of total resources. This is not a happy thought.

I’m a smaller guy, so I train at a high pace.

For me, having kids was a complete gamechanger. Overnight, your entire world changes – it’s incredible. The ‘smaller things’ you used to worry about, suddenly don’t seem important and all you can think about is keeping these little people healthy and happy.

Coming from a smaller nation in Central Europe, I have learned pretty soon how important are agreed rules, cooperation, respect for partners and, most of all, willingness to listen and find common solutions.

Smaller players in the Premier League are very good at using their bodies and that’s what I will continue to do.

I could throw the ball hard, but at this level if you’re not accurate, it’s easy for batters to light you up with home runs. That’s when I started concentrating on making my movements more compact. It just seemed to me that smaller movements would produce the kind of pitching I desired.

Some people aren’t great with babies, or they’re not great with a smaller child – it’s not that they’re bad mothers.

Cara Buono
Their memory‘s like a train: you can see it getting smaller as it pulls away And the things you can’t remember Tell the things you can’t forget that History puts a saint in every dream.

Just like when I was in the NFL, you’ve got to find those smaller dudes – and when you get your hands on them, it’s bad news – all day.

The smaller newspapers probably won’t have any critics at all. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing because there’s a certain level of seriousness that you can’t get with a small newspaper for critics.

When ‘Line of Duty‘ started on BBC2, there was a feeling that it couldn’t ever become a big show because the BBC2 drama budget is much smaller, and a returning cop series would take away from the Stephen Poliakoff/David Hare stuff that they love to commission.

Happiness statistics may be most valuable in smaller, local discussions. Understanding how different sorts of programs affect the well-being of citizens would be enormously helpful to a mayor choosing between building a new bridge or offering a tax cut.

Chickens that are sold whole tend to be smaller in size, ranging between two and a half and five pounds, while chicken sold as parts generally comes from larger birds.

It’s nice to be in a smaller room. I like the big arenas as well, but at my core, I’m a live performer, so it’s nice to be able to feel the warmth of everybody in the room.

I’m a big girl, so I want somebody that’s going to make me look a little bit smaller.

Smaller portions of good foods are more satisfying than larger portions of junk foods, especially if you pay attention to what you’re eating.

In gymnastics, smaller will always be better in many ways. The stress in the head, that will be the same for all. But the stress on the body and the concussions it must endure, that will always be easier for the little ones.

Bela Karolyi
We find them smaller and fainter, in constantly increasing numbers, and we know that we are reaching into space, farther and farther, until, with the faintest nebulae that can be detected with the greatest telescopes, we arrive at the frontier of the known universe.

Edwin Powell Hubble
As a small guard, you need to understand how you impact the game and make sure you impact it in the way that you can showcase your talent on the floor and having that understanding of the game. Tony Bennett was a smaller guard, too. We all have different strengths.

The world is getting smaller thanks to technology.

The electroencephalogram represents a continuous curve with continuous oscillations in which… one can distinguish larger first order waves with an average duration of 90 milliseconds and smaller second order waves of an average duration of 35 milliseconds.

Hans Berger
Samsung has drastically altered the rule that big screens mean huge phones. Even this smaller of the new Galaxy S models has a larger screen than the biggest iPhone, but it’s much narrower and easier to hold and to slip into a pocket.

I believe in eating smaller meals more often throughout the day to keep the metabolism going. Don’t deprive yourself, just make better choices. At 50 years old it is definitely a lot harder to stay in shape then it was when I was in my 20’s.

If I had stayed at City I think I would have been someone who simply filled in when I was required. I’d rather go elsewhere and play regularly. Be a bigger part of a smaller team.

I was thrilled when a designer shop assistant said I was a size smaller than Madonna!

Anne Robinson
There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less.

With clothing being designed that allows you to be hugged virtually, video conferencing becoming ever sharper, and our social and romantic lives increasingly taking place online, the gap between the physical and the virtual is getting ever smaller.

Venezuela is incredible, but Caracas? Oh God, I hate it. The sidewalks get smaller every time I go back.

Without Madeleine Albright, our community of democracies might be smaller.

I’ve always had trouble with long guys because as a shorter guy I have smaller explosive movements and a lot of long guys I can get trapped inside of them.

Europe’s demography is developing towards a smaller working population in an ageing society.

I always treat shows as though they could belong on either platform. I always design it for the bigger stage, but I love it on the smaller stage.

What I like writing about are people’s relationships, not necessarily great big dramatic things but the smaller things in life and how they affect characters and challenge and change the people that they are. I do like a happy ending, so my books have to have a happy ending.

Penny Jordan
I’m kind of intimidated by the big screen – I often keep my performances much smaller and much more natural and subtle.

A lot of guys I know are into this whole scarf trend. Not my thing. I prefer to update and personalize my style with the smaller things, like a pocket square or, again, with the shoes. All in the details.

Smaller tax refunds are not a bad thing – they’re a sign that people are keeping more of their money as they earn it, rather than letting Uncle Sam keep it under his mattress for them.

We do care about planets like the Earth because by now we understood that life as a chemical system really needs a smaller planet with water and with rocks and with a lot of complex chemistry to originate, to emerge, to survive.

Dimitar Sasselov
The weird thing about the subway is no one looks at each other. So I play the O2 in London. It’s a 20,000 capacity venue, and then I’ll take the subway to my gig, and everyone’s going to my gig, and no one looks at you. If anyone does, they say, ‘Hey, you look exactly like James Blunt, only smaller.’

Fears that formaldehyde from vaccines may cause cancer are similar to fears of mercury and aluminum, in that they coalesce around miniscule amounts of the substance in question, amounts considerably smaller than amounts from other common sources of exposure to the same substance.

We need people with foresight who are willing to make films with smaller budgets and accept smaller profits.

At that moment in time when we feel like the other, we were not the person embraced, not one of the cool kids, not in the club – when you’re that person, it makes you feel smaller, and when they persecute you as a result, that’s a difficult position to be in.

Taxation is not charity. It is not voluntary. As we shrink the state and make government smaller, we will find that more and more people are able to take care of themselves.

I guess there are some women who like older men, but it’s a smaller group.

I have done theatre, and I enjoy the process of smaller films a lot more. When I do such films, there are certain things which I get to do which are untapped. The scenes give me the liberty to play and mould the character in accordance to the director‘s mindset.

Just like any other company, Samsung can fail, and if that happens, how will the South Korean economy overcome the shock? If we don’t decrease our over-reliance on the chaebols and prepare to let smaller, dynamic start-ups fill the gaps in their place, it won’t.

My dad liked to boil a squirrel head and suck the brains out the nose. Smaller than a chicken, bigger than a rat.

One of the advantages of playing in a smaller market is that I can go back to Toronto, or all across the States and never be recognized. I get to go out to dinner, walk my dog, or go to the mall and nobody knows who I am.

It sounds like I’m joking when I say it, but when I wrote ‘Take Me To Church’ and a lot of these things, I didn’t think they would be hits. I thought I was writing for a potentially smaller audience.

When we did Party in the Park it was in front of 70,000 people and that was amazing. But with smaller crowds, you can see everyone looking at you. We’re like ‘eeeee!’

If I’m gonna have a piece of pie, I’ll have a couple bites, or I’ll have a smaller piece. I’m not going to sit down and eat half a pie. I don’t do that.

I’m probably going to go more the feature film route for a while, just so I have more time on my hands. If I did go back to television, I’d do a comedy, a half hour. Or I’d go back on an hour long if it was ensemble, if I had a smaller role, if I could work less days.

Ally Walker
I’m in a kind of weird position where I want to prove that I can do smaller movies.

You can’t just go out and buy players and make a super team, because it’s so hard to do that. The salary cap doesn’t allow it. We have a much smaller salary cap than the NBA, and they only have 12 on a roster.

Instead of being able to look at smaller interesting research projects, I am trying to see the links between all the research NASA does. For me, that’s extremely fun because I get to go play and learn about areas of science that I know nothing about.

We’re all walking around trying to deal with a certain amount of shame, to repress it. And we restrict our mental lives to smaller and smaller areas.

What the mayors care about is, ‘How can I get money to invest in the infrastructure in my city? How do we put people back to work, lower the unemployment rate, provide for job training programs? How do we make class sizes smaller and make investments in our children from an education standpoint?’

People think that their world will get smaller as they get older. My experience is just the opposite. Your senses become more acute. You start to blossom.

I have a Crock-Pot, and I have an All-Clad slow-cooker – I have two different ones. The All-Clad is larger, for maybe a gang of people, and my Crock-Pot’s a little smaller if I’m just making something for myself.

If Flavor Flav was any smaller and darker, Brad and Angelina would try to adopt him.

Playing football in Fargo has a total big-time feel. Everyone says it’s FCS and it’s a smaller school, but in Fargo, North Dakota, and in the state of North Dakota, NDSU football is the real deal.

The Republicans cry for smaller government; however, it seems that at every turn, they work at interfering with the lives of Americans, and we can add food-choice to the list.
