I learned piano off YouTube and still do a lot. It’s hard to find contemporary indie music on there, at least lessons, because the reach is smaller.

You also have more receivers who are getting jet sweeps, doing different things with the ball in their hands.
The notion that moving toward renewable energy will kill jobs is an absurdity on its face. The notion that we have to live smaller lifestyles; not have the American way of life or give up the American Dream is just ridiculous.

Just as the system of the sun, planets and comets is put in motion by the forces of gravity, and its parts persist in their motions, so the smaller systems of bodies also seem to be set in motion by other forces and their particles to be variously moved in relation to each other and, especially, by the electric force.
The world itself has become a smaller place. If you want to be remembered and create a legacy, you have to reach out to people. They want to know you. I can just say where I’m going, and Twitter will get it, and if there’s a controversy, I can give my opinion. It’s easier to communicate.
Maybe I should have taken it easy on the smaller shows especially, but all in all, I have no regrets.
Look at the Coen brothers. All their minor characters are as interesting as their protagonists. If the smaller characters are well-written, the whole world of the film becomes enriched. It’s not the size of the thing, but the detail.

I admire my fellow judge Paul Hollywood enormously, though we often argue. He believes presentation and uniformity are paramount; I’m more interested in taste. I don’t mind if one bun is smaller than the others, or if there’s a little pastry cracking, though I don’t want a soggy bottom.
I believe we are going to move into a situation where the more effective conferences will be smaller, more specialized, more focused, with occasional large gatherings to get the attention of the larger world.

That’s the way we want to go. Make smaller targets and then step by step developing.

With any body shape it’s important to buy the right size and not be dictated to by size you think you are. Try on a bigger and a smaller size in the shop and see what fits visually. If you do have to go up a size, cut the label out, it’s just a number!
In the wrestling world, you had WWE, WCW, and smaller promotions that were like the independents. I look at it as craft beer being the independent beer makers. It’s the indie scene.

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 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’.

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

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.
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.

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.

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

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

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.
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 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.
On the whole, books are indeed less finite than ourselves. Even the worst among them outlast their authors – mainly 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.

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

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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

The higher the voice the smaller the intellect.

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.

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.

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

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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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

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.

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.

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.
Technology has already opened the door a bit wider for filmmakers, with smaller digital cameras making production less cumbersome.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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?’
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.
Publishing your work is important. Even if you are giving a piece to some smaller publication for free, you will learn something about your writing. The editor will say something, friends will mention it. You will learn.
I think we are in an age where cash pays for time and space. The more cash you have, the bigger space you can buy and the smaller the technology to put in it.
Due to my work, I tend to stay in hotels a lot of the time, and I generally prefer smaller hotels, as you tend to get better service than in the larger hotels.
