We think when God speaks to us, there’s going to be a boom out of Heaven or we’re going to get some chill bumps, but I really believe God’s talking to us all the time. He’s talking to us right in here. I call it our heart, our conscience, but it’s the Holy Spirit talking to us.

Wisdom and penetration are the fruit of experience, not the lessons of retirement and leisure. Great necessities call out great virtues.

Discernment is God’s call to intercession, never to faultfinding.

I’ve known Donald forever, and I know the bad things they say about Donald Trump is not true because I’ve known him as a friend for so long. I’ve seen what he’s done for all types of people. I know how many people call him a racist and all this, and it just makes me sick because he’s not.

If you call ‘religious’ a man who believes in what I call a Supermeaning, a meaning so comprehensive that you can no longer grasp it, get hold of it in rational intellectual terminology, then one should feel free to call me religious, really.

What most men call their conscience is imaginary virtue switching left or right according to self-interest.

There’s no such thing is aging, but maturing and knowledge. It’s beautiful, I call that beauty.
I didn’t even know what a beauty editor was. It sounds like a fictional job if you think about it. You get to test lipstick and perfume and nail polish legitimately and call it work.

We can reduce these cancer rates – breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer – by 90 percent or more by people adopting what I call a nutritrarian diet.
Resveratrol is fascinating stuff. One of the best sources of information about it is the Immortality Institute. They have a forum where some people are in the 500 Club, as they call it. They’ve been taking 500 milligrams for years. It’s a really great source of data.
Our discomfort with female leadership runs deep. We call little girls bossy. We never really call little boys bossy, because a boy is expected to lead, so it doesn’t surprise or offend.
We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.

Because no matter who we are or where we come from, we’re all entitled to the basic human rights of clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and healthy land to call home.
The DJ still has the relationship with the people, I believe. I don’t know to call the DJ ‘the ambassadors’ or what, but we still are connecting the dots, getting the good stuff and passing it on to the people. DJs still have relevance, even with the technology that elevates the DJ beyond being a selector.
Babylon is everywhere. You have wrong and you have right. Wrong is what we call Babylon, wrong things. That is what Babylon is to me. I could have born in England, I could have born in America, it make no difference where me born, because there is Babylon everywhere.
And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.
If you call yourself a leader, then you have to be decisive. If you’re decisive, then you have the chance to be a leader. These are two sides to the same coin.
Now I call myself a bleeding heart libertarian. Because I do believe in the principles of Libertarianism as an ideal – because I’m an idealist.
I think what makes us human – is our interconnectedness among people. It’s our ability to form and maintain relationships. It’s the barometer by which we call ourselves human.

What people call impartiality may simply mean indifference, and what people call partiality may simply mean mental activity.
All mental hygiene is based on the core practice of doing nothing. Most of us are good at wasting time, staring at the wall while telling ourselves we should be working. We call this doing nothing, but our brains are furiously active. We think constantly, and our thinking is often rife with distress.
Well, in the first place, military service, they don’t call it service for nothing. You are actually serving your country. And it is a worthy and valid vocation.
What people call serendipity sometimes is just having your eyes open.
I’ve tried to incorporate new ways of playing the game. That’s why you hear people call me a ‘hybrid goalie’ and say I adjust to the situation, never doing the same thing over and over like a butterfly goalie. I try to see what works and hopefully with my talent I’m able to play it and make it happen.
I like to mix the street look with classy and sexy. I call it ‘hood chic.’
There’s a lot of administrator and ex-administrators and board of regents from Baylor that say that Art Briles was a scapegoat at Baylor. I’ve had calls from ex-chairmen of the board of regents there, current big booster there, lawyers that represent Baylor. I have not had one negative call about Art Briles.
If you want to be fully convinced of the abominations of slavery, go on a southern plantation, and call yourself a negro trader. Then there will be no concealment; and you will see and hear things that will seem to you impossible among human beings with immortal souls.
Blockchain is like the new big data or AI – too many people are using it as a buzzword and not focused solving a real problem. We like to call them Blockchain tourists!

The word ‘aerobics’ came about when the gym instructors got together and said: If we’re going to charge $10 an hour, we can’t call it Jumping up and down.
I have never said that there is no need for a guru. All depends on what you call guru. He need not be in a human form.
When people talk about people who are optimistic about gold, they call them ‘gold bugs.’ A bug is an insect. I don’t call equity bugs ‘cockroaches.’ Do you understand? There is already a negative connotation with the expression of ‘gold bug.’
Our Government is committed to pursuing policies and programs which facilitate a further lowering of the interest rates in order to fuel investment and growth. We call on the commercial banks to partner with us in this effort.
I thought I was grounded. I thought from my kinda blue-collar outlook on life that I would call myself a grounded person. I was not. I was like a balloon flying around in the air. And as soon as our first child was born, boom – my feet came right down to the ground.
When I was a young man, Dirac was my hero. He made a breakthrough, a new method of doing physics. He had the courage to simply guess at the form of an equation, the equation we now call the Dirac equation, and to try to interpret it afterwards.
With the success of a show, you get an opportunity to call attention to things that you believe in.
It’s not a choice between war and peace. It’s a choice between war and endless war. It’s not appeasement. I think it’s better even to call it American self-interest.
Listen, if you don’t talk big game, you never get anywhere. If you don’t think big, you don’t get big. Some people call it egotistical, some people call it high hopes, some people call it confidence. It’s all in how you want to dissect it.
We spent a few days up Ben Nevis, which is the biggest mountain in the U.K., and there was one day when we had to make a decision whether we were going to go to the summit or not. It was already getting dark, but we made the call to go and made the summit, but as soon as we got there, this blizzard just hit.
When people say the word ‘bromance,’ it drives me nuts, because guys can’t be friends so they call it a ‘bromance’ as this macho way out of it.
I’ve always believed in a higher power. You can call it God, you can call it Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Allah, I don’t care. I really believe we are all a part of God.
I had a little portable typewriter. I call it my Harlem Literary Fellowship.
We shot ‘Breaking Bad‘ on film; we capture ‘Better Call Saul’ digitally. In the shooting of ‘Breaking Bad,’ we would have this steady, handheld, cinema verite sort of look, so we purposely went the opposite way with ‘Better Call Saul’ – locked in the cameras and made the movements smoother and more mechanical.
I still call myself a communist, because communism is no more what Russia made of it than Christianity is what the churches make of it.
If society fits you comfortably enough, you call it freedom.
My hope is that we would begin to have a dialogue in this country about the importance of civility. We can have strong differences, but it does seem to me that most of the country believes it’s gone to critical mass in what I would call the professional class across the political spectrum – left and right.
I wouldn’t call myself a feminist, because I think there are differences between men and women.

Greed has been with human beings forever. We have a number of things in our species that you would call ‘the dark side,’ and greed is one of them. If you don’t put certain structures in place or restrictions on those parts of our being that come from that dark place, then it gets out of control.
I’m not even on Facebook. I’ve got enough friends I never see. You know how you have a lot of friends you never call? I don’t have time for new friends, and I don’t want to be friends with someone only online.

The men who learn endurance, are they who call the whole world, brother.

And I will do everything that I can as long as I am President of the United States to remind the American people that we are one nation under God, and we may call that God different names but we remain one nation.
Oftentimes, when we think of 3D, we think of things coming out of the screen, but actually, you’ve got this zero, this negative space, what they call the negative space, which is the scene, what’s being filmed in the positive space of the audience. As you can have things come out, you can have all of this depth.
All in all, I wouldn’t call it a bad outing. It was a short outing.

I call Pluto the harbinger.
Authority is mainly a moral power; therefore, it must first call upon the conscience, that is, upon the duty that each person has to contribute willingly to the common good.
I take all of my life lessons, which some people might call ‘mistakes,’ and apply them to my future so that I keep growing.
I am always saying, ‘I don’t believe in God; I believe in Al Pacino.’ And that’s true. If I ever get a phone call saying ‘Would you like to work with Al Pacino?’ I would go crazy.

People always call it luck when you’ve acted more sensibly than they have.
A free America… means just this: individual freedom for all, rich or poor, or else this system of government we call democracy is only an expedient to enslave man to the machine and make him like it.
My thing about gender-based violence is to bring in the men. Because people would ask women, ‘What do you think we should do to fight this?’ And I’m like, ‘Why are you asking me?’ I’m not the perpetrator in most of the instances so why don’t we call on the people that are?
I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees Christmas trees. I don’t feel threatened. I don’t feel discriminated against.
Agriculture not only gives riches to a nation, but the only riches she can call her own.
I come before you to call for unity from all Argentina, to build a new social contract of brotherhood and solidarity. I come before you calling for all to put Argentina on its feet, to put the country on a path toward development and social justice.
You take 35 degrees out of 360 degrees and call it a photo. No individual photo explains anything. That’s what makes photography such a wonderful and problematic medium.
I don’t know if you call a burger ‘recession food.’ It’s comfort food.
The Constitution that I interpret and apply is not living, but dead, or as I prefer to call it, enduring. It means, today, not what current society, much less the court, thinks it ought to mean, but what it meant when it was adopted.
I’d rather spend my leisure time doing what some people call my work and I call my fun.
The call of death is a call of love. Death can be sweet if we answer it in the affirmative, if we accept it as one of the great eternal forms of life and transformation.

If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry’.
I call it like I see it. I don’t hold back when it comes to being candid on the hot issues.

I don’t remember myself to be a forefront fighter, but when pushed to a point with a wall behind me, there is only one way forward. Later you can call it a Rambo syndrome, but I never regret it, as it comes naturally to me, and in my mind, that is the only way.
Israel is following policies which maximise its security threats… policies which choose expansion over security… policies which lead to their moral degradation, their isolation, their delegitimation, as they call it now, and very likely ultimate destruction. That’s not impossible.
My poor children have been the subject of all of my experiments. We’re still doing what I call ‘Amish summers‘ where I turn off all electronics and pack away all their computers and stuff and watch them scream for a while until they settle down into, like, an electronic-free summer.
Any man can call time out, but no man can say how long the time out will be.
The separation of church and state is a source of strength, but the conscience of our nation does not call for separation between men of state and faith in the Supreme Being.

As a doctor, you are out on call most nights, so you don’t get continuous sleep, and that becomes something that is familiar to you. So, working hard doesn’t bother me.
And why is our music called world music? I think people are being polite. What they want to say is that it’s third world music. Like they use to call us under developed countries, now it has changed to developing countries, it’s much more polite.

Looking the way I look, whenever anybody’s looking for a light brown funny guy, I get the call… I’m 100 percent Greek, but I look like I could be Indian or Middle Eastern or Hispanic. If it’s ethnic, they’ll try and put me in it.
What’s it like finding out Denzel Washington wants you to direct his next movie? It’s like getting a phone call from Muhammad Ali or Michael Jordan saying they want you to coach them.
A little of what you call frippery is very necessary towards looking like the rest of the world.
I have a big forehead, and I got made fun of all time. When I was a little girl, they used to call me ‘five-head.’
I call everyone ‘Darling‘ because I can’t remember their names.
Architecture is a service business. An architect is given a program, budget, place, and schedule. Sometimes the end product rises to art – or at least people call it that.
In the rest of the world, rich people will give a donation, and businessmen give to charities. But in Mexico, the execution capacity of what we call the social sector is missing. I find it much more effective to set up the actual social organisation and then fund it with my money.
In America, they like to think, ‘Do as many things as you can.’ That’s what I like about being here. ‘You’re a polymath! We call you multi-hyphenates!’ I like the idea you’re allowed work as much as you can.
An illustration is a visual editorial – it’s just as nuanced. Everything that goes into it is a call you make: every color, every line weight, every angle.
The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.
I talk to my friends and, you know, they all seem to get relationships that aren’t right. You kind of want someone who is not at your beck and call but loves the idea of being in a relationship and what that entails.
If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that… I believe in what I do, and I’ll say it.
Kristina, my wife, and I thought about this one day when the kids were, of course, watching television. And we took a big blanket and put it in the backyard and said, ‘Let’s go out on our back and look at the sky and call it sky television.’ We saw all kinds of things.
There are no categories in contemporary art. There are no rules. Artists are given the freedom to make and create whatever they please and call it whatever they please. I identify with that system, or lack of system, much more than I do the landscape of contemporary publishing.
Can I call up any actor in Mumbai? I can, and they can say wrong number and hang up!

We have to live today by what truth we can get today and be ready tomorrow to call it falsehood.
When I was younger, it was so much easier. All I needed to do was just get a job. It was like, ‘Oh, my God, I have a job! I can call myself a working actor.’ But then, the older you get, you have to be more selective, and that’s tough.
Where I think people are being offensive to religion in this country – whichever religion that might be, but particularly the one I and many other Christians subscribe to – well, we will just call it out, and we will demand the same respect that people should provide to all religions.
Pressure is the single mom who is trying to scuffle and pay her rent. We get paid a lot of money to play a game. Don’t get me wrong: there are challenges. But to call it pressure is almost an insult to regular people.
Poetry is a call to action, and it also is action.
I think we should take Iraq and Iran and combine them into one country and call it Irate. All the pissed off people live in one place and get it over with.

Don’t just stand there, idiot. Call a doctor, and then help me find a nose.

I’m what they call an intelligent hoodlum.
A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.
In the earliest years of the AIDS crisis, there were many gay men who were unable to come out about the fact that their lovers were ill, A, and then dead, B. They were unable to get access to the hospital to see their lover, unable to call their parents and say, ‘I have just lost the love of my life.’
Not only had I not expected a random call from Joe Biden, but I could never have imagined he would make that call to ask me out. I’ve been asked if I was starstruck by the fact that a U.S. senator thought I was worth a call, but I honestly wasn’t. I was flattered that someone I’d heard of was interested.
When I was a teenager, my dad used to call me ‘Hollywood‘ because I wore sunglasses all the time, even at night. Cue song.
I think the American Dream should be about a greater progressive legislation that allows for what I call a necessary future world of cooperational humanism.
I like men. I like the sound of their voices, the way they think. They’re more sensitive than women. With a woman, everything is either this or that, black or white. But a man can see shades of gray. That’s what I call being sensitive.
My first recollection is that of a bugle call.
Don’t call me, I’ll call you… I’m out.
Don’t call me an intellectual. After all, there are a lot more people taking their A-levels each summer than signing for Real Madrid. I was just a good and serious student.
Coming up in this country, I’ve seen it so many times. When you see somebody rising you want to tear them down because you feel inadequate and you want to call it humble.
I was once married to a woman who could eat anything and tell you what was in it: the most complicated recipes. Her memory of taste – now that’s what I call memory!
The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck.
It’s hard knowing who to trust with your personal life. When you cry in your room at night, you don’t always know who to call. So I am very close to my family.
It’s really amazing that in the age of unbelief, as a smart man called it, there isn’t even more fraud. After all, with no God, there’s no one to ever call you to account, and no accounting at all if you can get away with it.
A lot of people say, ‘What set the Attitude Era up?’ or, ‘What started the Attitude Era?’ To me – and I was allegedly the leader of it – sports entertainment, pro wrestling, whatever you want to call it has always had an attitude. So, why that particular generation got labeled, I don’t know.
Pray in your family daily, that yours may be in the number of the families who call upon God.
The worst thing to call somebody is crazy. It’s dismissive.
The NWO, yeah, we’re a bunch of outlaws, thugs, whatever you want to call us, but… we do what we want, when we want. And we’re having fun doing it.
Positive rights are the right to shelter, the right to education, the right to health care, the right to a living wage. These things are – these are, I would call them, more properly, political rights rather than positive rights. And they are extremely tricky, because now we are dealing with things that are zero sum.
Wherever there is a design that is highly successful in a broad range of similar environments, it is apt to emerge again and again, independently – the phenomenon known in biology as convergent evolution. I call these designs ‘good tricks.’
I am really surprised bitcoin isn’t more popular in India, given the strong gold culture here. I call it Gold 2.0. It has all the attributes other than the fact that it isn’t tangible, and tangibility is less important in the digital age.
Mathematical reasoning may be regarded rather schematically as the exercise of a combination of two facilities, which we may call intuition and ingenuity.

Motherhood is the ultimate call to sacrifice.
You’ve got to listen to the universe, to life, to God, whatever you want to call it. Because its going to speak to you.
Without transformation, you can assume you’re at a high moral, spiritual level just because you call yourself Lutheran or Methodist or Catholic. I think my great disappointment as a priest has been to see how little actual spiritual curiosity there is in so many people.
People want to call me racist for doing the Bon Qui Qui character, and I’m like, ‘Look, Bon Qui Qui is a representation of a hood chick. That’s it.’ There are lots of hood chicks out there: some are black, some are Mexican, some are Salvadorian, and some are white.
I call on all the countries of the world, especially the donor countries, to speed up their contributions so that the Palestinian people may overcome their economic and social problems and proceed with reconstruction and the rebuilding of infrastructures.

The Western world, the free world, loses what it cherishes most, and that is freedom and liberty we’ve seen for a couple of hundred years in this grand experiment that we call democracy.
