Careers quotes by Daniel Pipes
#3. My career divides in two: before and after 9/11. In the first part I was trying to show that Islam is relevant to political concerns. If you want to understand Muslims, I argued, you need to understand the role of Islam in their lives. Now that seems obvious. #Quote by Daniel Pipes
Careers quotes by Rod Stewart

Careers quotes by Lynn Povich
#10. What led to our revolt? Why did our generation suddenly realize that our place in society was changing--and had to change? In part, we were carried by the social and political currents of our time...But even with the social winds in our sails and the women's movement behind us, each of us had to overcome deeply held values and traditional social strictures. The struggle was personally painful and professionally scary. What would happen to us? Would we win our case? Would we change the magazine? Or would we be punished? Who would succeed and who would not? And if our revolt failed, were our careers over--or were they over anyway? We knew that filing the suit legally protected us from being fired, but we didn't trust the editors not to find some way to do us in.

Whatever happened, the immediate result is that it put us all on the line. "The night after the press conference I realized there was no turning back," said Lucy Howard. "Once I stepped up and said I wanted to be a writer, it was over. I wanted to change Newsweek, but everything was going to change. #Quote by Lynn Povich
Careers quotes by Panashe Chigumadzi
#11. The time for careers and passions was gone. Hunger pangs displaced ambition. #Quote by Panashe Chigumadzi
Careers quotes by Loren Weisman
#12. The most devastating thing artists can do to their career is get in their own way, and way too many people do. It's not the labels, the industry, the fans, the cities, the economy, the social media, the marketing, the promoting, the 'right time,' the music, or whatever other excuse you can come up with that determines whether you succeed or you fail. It is you, no one else, #Quote by Loren Weisman
Careers quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#13. Prudence, patience, labor, valor; these are the stars that rule the career of mortals. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Careers quotes by John Fogerty
#14. Other people want a career or success because they think that will help them find their personal life somewhere. I've done it the other way around. What I have is what everybody else is looking for. I know I've got it made. I know I'm a very lucky man. That came first. Then the music and the career just kind of took care of themselves. #Quote by John Fogerty
Careers quotes by Mike Rowe
#15. Some jobs pay better, some jobs smell better, and some jobs have no business being treated like careers. But work is never the enemy, regardless of the wage. Because somewhere between the job and the paycheck, there's still a thing called opportunity, and that's what people need to pursue. #Quote by Mike Rowe
Careers quotes by Bill Murray
#16. I think all phases of one's career are serious if you take it seriously no matter if you are doing high profile dramatic pieces or not. #Quote by Bill Murray
Careers quotes by Sean Combs
#17. Fans made me. The fans gave me a chance, and they made me. Beyond that, my career has been trials and tribulations and ups and downs, so I have to have true fans riding with me. #Quote by Sean Combs
Careers quotes by Peter Drucker
#18. Some of the best business and nonprofit CEOs I've worked with over a sixty-five-year consulting career were not stereotypical leaders. They were all over the map in terms of their personalities, attitudes, values, strengths, and weaknesses. #Quote by Peter Drucker
Careers quotes by Daddy Yankee
#19. 'Limbo' has been one of the greatest hits of my career. A great response all over the world, not just Latinos but people in Europe and America. #Quote by Daddy Yankee
Careers quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#20. As often happens between men who have chosen different pursuits, each, while in argument justifying the other's activity, despised it in the depth of his heart. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Careers quotes by Thomas Huxley
#21. Without seeing any reason to believe that women are, on the average, so strong physically, intellectually, or morally, as men, I cannot shut my eyes to the fact that many women are much better endowed in all these respects than many men, and I am at a loss to understand on what grounds of justice or public policy a career which is open to the weakest and most foolish of the male sex should be forcibly closed to women of vigor and capacity. #Quote by Thomas Huxley
Careers quotes by Carl Lewis
#22. After I left the podium in Atlanta, I felt so fulfilled in my career that I lost my desire to compete at that level again. #Quote by Carl Lewis
Careers quotes by Adam Cole
#23. My all-time favorite match that I've ever had was against Kyle O'Reilly in 2012, the 'hybrid fighting rules match' where we were bleeding buckets all over the place. And it was really a match that took my career to the next level. #Quote by Adam Cole
Careers quotes by Dennis Quaid
#24. Playing Bill Clinton is really, probably, the scariest time of my career. #Quote by Dennis Quaid
Careers quotes by Meg Ryan
#25. I've played a heroin addict and a speed freak and dark characters throughout my career. #Quote by Meg Ryan
Careers quotes by Alicia Keys
#26. Musicians used to be way more instrumental just in providing a soundtrack to what's going on in the world. And it's also important to state what we think. There's like this fear for their career, if they have anything intelligent to say about politics. And that's really messed up. #Quote by Alicia Keys
Careers quotes by Don Henley
#27. It was pretty frightening because as we all know, when large, famous groups breakup, a lot of the members don't survive in solo careers. #Quote by Don Henley
Careers quotes by Jessica Savitch
#28. It had not occurred to me that marriage requires the same effort as a career. And unlike a career, marriage requires a joint effort. #Quote by Jessica Savitch
Careers quotes by Blake Mycoskie
#29. Instead of squirreling away your earnings early in your career, spend on experiences that will enrich your life - like diving with great white sharks. It can expose you to influential people who could open doors for you. #Quote by Blake Mycoskie
Careers quotes by Torre DeRoche
#30. His introduction throws me. The only time I can envision "Hi, I'm a surgeon" as a fitting introduction is if I were on a gurney in a stark white room and a man wielding a scalpel was standing over me. Plus, it's been a while since we've talked careers with anyone. Jobs are rarely a topic of conversation anymore--they exist in a place and time too far away to seem interesting. "What do you do?" is not a question asked to define someone, because out here we're all working the same jobs: yachties, mechanics, navigators, weather-readers, fishermen, adventure travelers, storytellers. #Quote by Torre DeRoche
Careers quotes by Allison Pearson
#31. My mother was a stay-at-home mom until I was about 11, when she got a job - and it was like a light came on inside her. It's not wrong to be passionate about your career. When you love what you do, you bring that stimulation back to your family. #Quote by Allison Pearson
Careers quotes by Susan Wojcicki
#32. At the end of the day, both men and women who become CEOs have showed tenacity and hard work to succeed in their careers. It takes not just skills but also extreme dedication and commitment. And regardless of gender, CEOs are measured by the same criteria - the growth and success of the business. #Quote by Susan Wojcicki
Careers quotes by Treat Williams
#33. This is the kind of work I've aspired to my whole career. #Quote by Treat Williams
Careers quotes by Andy Warhol
#34. Believe me ... I've made a career out of being the right thing in the wrong space and the wrong thing in the right space. That's one thing ... I really do know about. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Careers quotes by Earl G. Graves, Sr.
#35. To have a successful career, you have to approach it as an entrepreneur, even if you are working for someone else. Your career is your own private business. You have to market yourself and your abilities and knowledge just as you would a product or service. #Quote by Earl G. Graves, Sr.
Careers quotes by Greg Giraldo
#36. All the evidence we need that God is angry with us is Justin Timberlake's career. #Quote by Greg Giraldo
Careers quotes by Cory Trepanier
#37. Rather than listening to music while you paint, listen to the sort of wisdom that can help grow your career. #Quote by Cory Trepanier
Careers quotes by Wilma Mankiller
#38. A lot of young girls have looked to their career paths and have said they'd like to be chief. There's been a change in the limits people see. #Quote by Wilma Mankiller
Careers quotes by Jason Versey
#39. Every great accomplishment has its share of struggle, adversity and pain. Great achievement cannot exist without them. To reap the rewards of success in our marriages, in the lives of our children, and in our professional careers we must be prepared to push through some pretty tough moments. But trust me... on the other side of that struggle awaits an intrinsic reward that is worth more than gold. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Careers quotes by Brian Cox
#40. The hardest thing to do in movies is be a day-part player. You have to go in, make your mark, and get out. There's a lot of leading actors who are not good for a lot of a movie, and then suddenly they have good moments, and they're like stepping-stones across a particularly feisty stream. They build careers out of that. #Quote by Brian Cox
Careers quotes by Irvine Welsh
#41. Ah don't really know, Tam, ah jist dinnae. It kinday makes things seem mair real tae us. Life's boring and futile. We start aof wi high hopes, then we bottle it. We realise that we're aw gaunnae die, withoot really findin oot the big answers. We develop aw they long-winded ideas which just interpret the reality ay oor lives in different weys, withoot really extending oor body ay worthwhile knowledge, about the big things, the real things. Basically, we live a short, disappointing life; and then we die. We fill up oor lives wi shite, things like careers and relationships tae delude oorsels that it isnae totally pointless. Smack's an honest drug, because it strips away these delusions. Wi smack, whin ye feel good, ye feel immortal. Whin ye feel bad, it intensifies the shite that's already thair. It's the only really honest drug. It doesnae alter yer consciousness. It just gies ye a hit and a sense ay well-being. Eftir that, ye see the misery ay the world as it is, and ye cannae anaesthetise yirsel against it. #Quote by Irvine Welsh
Careers quotes by Kate Winslet
#42. If you're not still learning and growing as an actor, then you have no backbone and no career #Quote by Kate Winslet
Careers quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#43. We prepare our students for jobs and careers, but we don't teach them to think as individuals about what kind of world they would create. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Careers quotes by Sarah Stillman
#44. For me, the part of reporting that's the most rewarding and energizing is just hearing directly from people whose voices haven't often been heard, or incorporated into mainstream media. That stuff is really, really gratifying, and so to realize that you could make a career of that part of it, that appealed to me. #Quote by Sarah Stillman
Careers quotes by Samantha Bond
#45. I managed to slip two children out in the middle of my career and have been lucky with all the work. #Quote by Samantha Bond
Careers quotes by Michael Eklund
#46. Actors sure have stories. We always have stories. At the end of our careers, all we have to take with us is our stories, and we have many of them. #Quote by Michael Eklund
Careers quotes by Brian Littrell
#47. Eyes are very appealing to me. I also like somebody who is interested in a career for themselves and can treat me like a normal person. #Quote by Brian Littrell
Careers quotes by Angela Bassett
#48. Acting is my calling, not my career. #Quote by Angela Bassett
Careers quotes by Bob Saget
#49. If you're a host of a video show and you're on the cleanest show on television for eight years, people want to say, 'Well, that's what that person does.' That was the dilemma for me, career-wise. #Quote by Bob Saget
Careers quotes by Kurt Fuller
#50. I suppose there are a lot of people who'd kill to have my career, but I still feel like a fan. #Quote by Kurt Fuller
Careers quotes by Allan Sloan
#51. I've spent my career trying to help people without connections understand what's going on so that they have a chance of getting a fair shake from the connected and the powerful. #Quote by Allan Sloan
Careers quotes by Charlie Hunnam
#52. In the early part of your career you are always compared with somebody until you can stand on your own two feet. #Quote by Charlie Hunnam
Careers quotes by Whoopi Goldberg
#53. Thank you, God, because I am lucky. Also let's face it, it turns out I'm black. And I'm having a career quite different from lots of people, so I feel doubly lucky. #Quote by Whoopi Goldberg
Careers quotes by Thomas Paine
#54. It has been the political career of this man to begin with hypocrisy, proceed with arrogance, and finish with contempt #Quote by Thomas Paine
Careers quotes by Ryan O'Connell
#55. I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can't do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can't vomit from drinking at 26. I just can't! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We're obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It's kind of sad actually because I don't think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We're so concerned about doing things "the right way" that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young. #Quote by Ryan O'Connell
Careers quotes by LaToya London
#56. I know I'm happy and can't wait to see where my career will go next. This isn't the end for any of us. I can understand why they are upset but I want them to move forward and look for the future. #Quote by LaToya London
Careers quotes by Michael Ealy
#57. For the most part, I meet people who are like 'I really like your work. I'm watching your career. I want to see you do well. Keep doing what you do.' I get that so much, and it's so reassuring. I often wish that so many people, who just work normal jobs, could get a pat on the back as much as I do, because it's very complimentary. #Quote by Michael Ealy
Careers quotes by DeVon Franklin
#58. Commit to a career built on sacrifice, not compromise. #Quote by DeVon Franklin
Careers quotes by Alex Webb
#59. Photograph because you love doing it, because you absolutely have to do it, because the chief reward is going to be the process of doing it. Other rewards - recognition, financial remuneration - come to so few and are so fleeting ... Take photography on as a passion, not a career. #Quote by Alex Webb
Careers quotes by Dana Perino
#60. I think, certainly, in history, if you look back, a lot of people would go through their careers, build a business, or be a doctor, lawyer, and then they would go and do public service later on in their careers. #Quote by Dana Perino
Careers quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#61. They [the Democrat Party ] owed her everything. Hillary Clinton preserved the Democrat Party. She preserved the Bill Clinton career, meaning she preserved the Bill Clinton presidency, which meant that she preserved eight to ten years of constant victory over the Republicans and over conservatives. They betrayed her on a moment's notice. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Careers quotes by Sandra Bernhard
#62. The most important, overriding arc of my career has been that I would never be self-deprecating. #Quote by Sandra Bernhard
Careers quotes by Craig Keffeler
#63. Wanted to do something creative, and wrote "Asesina" as I transitioned careers. I hope you will enjoy the novel. #Quote by Craig Keffeler
Careers quotes by Michael Douglas
#64. My entire career is contemporary based, not by choice, but just by character. So, all the movies I've done, except for one in 40 years, are contemporary. But I never did an effects movie. So, I'm also a producer and I was really curious about how this whole thing went together. #Quote by Michael Douglas
Careers quotes by Steven Spielberg
#65. I've kept the people who've been in my career who I feel are my family. Kathy [Kennedy] had been with me since 1978. Janusz Kaminsky, my cinematographer, has made every movie with me since Schindler's List. Michael Kahn has cut every movie I've directed since 1976 when we made Close Encounters together. Rick Carter has done more than 15 of my directed films as a production designer. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Careers quotes by Wendell Berry
#66. I would argue that it is not human fecundity that is overcrowding the world so much as the technological multipliers of the power of individual humans. The worst disease of the world now is probably the ideology of technological heroism, according to which more and more people willingly cause large-scale effects that they do not see and that they cannot control. This is the ideology of the professional class of the industrial nations - a class whose allegiance to communities and places has been dissolved by their economic motives and by their educations. These are people who will go anywhere and jeopardize anything in order to assure the success of their careers. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Careers quotes by Lindsay Davenport
#67. I could never have gotten back into my career without the undying support of my husband, who works full time at a stressful job! We decided that we were going to do this as total partners and it is a 50/50 deal with us. #Quote by Lindsay Davenport
Careers quotes by Hans F. Sennholz
#68. We are ever aware that politics is an ugly struggle that determines 'who gets what, when, and how.' It is the favorite occupation of people who serve special interests, who have axes to grind, and public careers to advance. It is a game in which benefits are bestowed according to political skill and connection, rather than merit. #Quote by Hans F. Sennholz
Careers quotes by Chris Hedges
#69. We've bought into the idea that education is about training and "success", defined monetarily, rather than learning to think critically and to challenge. We should not forget that the true purpose of education is to make minds, not careers. A culture that does not grasp the vital interplay between morality and power, which mistakes management techniques for wisdom, which fails to understand that the measure of a civilization is its compassion, not its speed or ability to consume, condemns itself to death. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Careers quotes by Lucille Roybal-Allard
#70. People show surprise that I have interests outside my political career. There is subtle surprise, for example, that I would be interested in a recipe. #Quote by Lucille Roybal-Allard
Careers quotes by Dan Simmons
#71. Nothing helps an artist's career more than a little death and obscurity. #Quote by Dan Simmons
Careers quotes by Kimberly Quinn
#72. My career's consisted of all of those things that you hope would one day lead to being a series regular, and then your dreams grow from there. My career has been very steady, and I've been blessed in that I've been given everything that I can handle, at the right time. #Quote by Kimberly Quinn
Careers quotes by Kenny Loggins
#73. It's difficult to get an audience to want to keep up with you, stay present tense. But there's never been a big lag in my career between product. I've constantly tried to pull my audience up into what I'm doing present tense, and they've been usually happy to go there with me. #Quote by Kenny Loggins
Careers quotes by Sandra Bernhard
#74. I've always loved being at the eye of the storm creatively with people that I find exciting and glamorous. So sometimes I got sidetracked in my career and maybe I would have done more TV or film. #Quote by Sandra Bernhard
Careers quotes by Maria Sharapova
#75. There's not many firsts in my career, as I have been a part of many tournaments and fortunate enough to win many. #Quote by Maria Sharapova
Careers quotes by Meg Rosoff
#76. I know from experience that careers do not always arise from a deep sense of destiny. #Quote by Meg Rosoff
Careers quotes by Brian Halligan
#77. I started my career as a sales guy in the nineties, when the funnel was controlled by the sales rep, who had all the information the prospect wanted, including pricing and discount options. Now 90 percent of it has swung to marketing. It's self-service and you need to be very, very helpful to see to the top of the funnel. The game has changed a lot. #Quote by Brian Halligan
Careers quotes by Frederick Lenz
#78. Career success means making enough money to lead the kind of life you would like to lead as a practicing Buddhist. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Careers quotes by Cal Ripken, Jr.
#79. So many good things have happened to me in the game of baseball. When I do allow myself a chance to think about it, it's almost like a storybook career. You feel so blessed to have been able to compete this long. #Quote by Cal Ripken, Jr.
Careers quotes by Brian Leetch
#80. I just wore a cage my whole career coming up, and didn't feel a reason not to have some type of protection. #Quote by Brian Leetch
Careers quotes by Rick Warren
#81. Faithful servants never retire. You can retire from your career, but you will never retire from serving God. #Quote by Rick Warren
Careers quotes by Charlie Munger
#82. Early Charlie Munger is a horrible career model for the young because not enough was delivered to civilization in return for what was wrested from capitalism. And other similar career models are even worse. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Careers quotes by Bob Geldof
#83. When I hit 11 so did the careers of Dylan and the Stones. A year later it was the Who and the Kinks. #Quote by Bob Geldof
Careers quotes by Loren Weisman
#84. Try not to sound like those singer-songwriters that go on and on with ten-minute, barely intelligible stories that everyone endures until the next song starts. #Quote by Loren Weisman
Careers quotes by Rose McIver
#85. I am inspired by working professionals who find lots of time for family and friends. It is easy to get caught up in a career, and I personally aspire to maintain strong connections with the people who matter most to me. #Quote by Rose McIver
Careers quotes by Kerri Walsh
#86. The balancing act of motherhood and a career, and being a wife, is something that I don't think I'll ever perfect, but I love the challenge of it. #Quote by Kerri Walsh
Careers quotes by Frank N. Newman
#87. The most important thing an institution does is not to prepare a student for a career but for a life as a citizen. #Quote by Frank N. Newman
Careers quotes by Phil Elvrum
#88. I am still not taking my "career" in music for granted. It is constantly surprising that it works. Generally my thinking about the future has this assumption of an impending apocalypse. #Quote by Phil Elvrum
Careers quotes by Padma Lakshmi
#89. I have a great career, and I have my daughter. Sio what I don't have is not as important to as what I do have. #Quote by Padma Lakshmi
Careers quotes by Ruud Gullit
#90. If you look at my career, I've never gone to a team that had fulfilled their potential. #Quote by Ruud Gullit
Careers quotes by Nastia Liukin
#91. Gymnastics, especially in my family, is more than a sport. It's our life, it's our careers, it's our family business. #Quote by Nastia Liukin
Careers quotes by Michael Bay
#92. Nobody in the world knew about Megan Fox until I found her and put her in 'Transformers.' I like to think that I've had some luck in building actors' careers with my films. #Quote by Michael Bay
Careers quotes by Sidney Poitier
#93. If you apply reason and logic to this career of mine, you're not going to get very far. You simply won't. #Quote by Sidney Poitier
Careers quotes by Amanda Schull
#94. As a dancer, I know couples that have stayed married but separated to dance on different continents. Dance in general, but ballet in particular, is such a finite career. You can't do it later in life, and it's something that I think a dancer has to have some selfishness to fulfill. #Quote by Amanda Schull
Careers quotes by Sarah Jessica Parker
#95. I thought if I had straight hair and a perfect nose, my whole career would be different. #Quote by Sarah Jessica Parker
Careers quotes by Alberto Juantorena
#96. If we carry on filling up the calendar, we keep on pushing the athlete, we shorten the athletes longevity. The risk is to shorten a career that could have lasted 10 years because the athlete is burnt out. #Quote by Alberto Juantorena
Careers quotes by Aisha Tyler
#97. A belief in feminism is a belief in personal freedom - the freedom to live a life free of fear of violence, to select a fulfilling career and be compensated fairly, to choose when to start a family, to marry whom you love. I want everyone, regardless of gender, to live a life free of restriction or fear, able to pursue their own personal brand of happiness and fulfillment. #Quote by Aisha Tyler
Careers quotes by Ann Coulter
#98. When liberals start acting like they're opposed to pre-marital sex and mothers having careers, you know McCain's vice presidential choice has knocked them back on their heels. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Careers quotes by Michael Owen
#99. The longer my career has gone, the more I seem to score ... It's experience and age and knowing where the ball's going to be. #Quote by Michael Owen
Careers quotes by Ashthon Jones
#100. Steven Tyler is awesome. He is so humble. He's really sweet and coming from him and his career, it's amazing. #Quote by Ashthon Jones
Careers quotes by Ali Wong
#101. A reporter once asked me why I think progressive men who earn significantly less than their breadwinning wives still won't quit their jobs to take care of their children. Why do they still hold on to their careers, even if taking care of the children would make more financial sense because the cost of childcare is higher than their net salary?
I think I know the answer to that now, and it sucks. Women are not expected to live a life for themselves. When women dedicate their lives to children, it is deemed a worthy and respectable choice. When women dedicate themselves to a passion outside of the family that doesn't involve worshiping their husbands or taking care of their kids, they're seen as selfish, cold, or unfit mothers. But when a man spends hours grueling over a craft, profession, or project, he's admired and seen as a genius. And when a man finds a woman who worships him, who dedicates her life to serving him, he's lucky. But when a man dedicates himself to taking care of his children it's seen as a last resort. That it must be because he ran out of other options. That it's plan Z. That it's an indicator of his inability to provide for his family. Basically, that he's a fucking loser. I think it's one of the most important falsehoods we need to shatter when talking about women's rights. #Quote by Ali Wong
Careers quotes by Arnold Palmer
#102. I never felt I could be a complete professional without having won the British Open. It was something you had to do to complete your career. #Quote by Arnold Palmer
Careers quotes by Buddy Holly
#103. Death is very often referred to as a good career move. #Quote by Buddy Holly
Careers quotes by Nicole Kidman
#104. If I were a strategically minded person, I think I would have a far different career. #Quote by Nicole Kidman
Careers quotes by Dan Fogelman
#105. My first jobs were at Pixar and John Lasseter just doing animation would always allow actors to do that, and then animate to that. It was an early lesson for me that, if you're lucky enough, as I've been in my career thus far, to get really incredible iconic people to do your stuff, you want them to tell your story and you want them to be on page in the important moments, and they usually are. #Quote by Dan Fogelman
Careers quotes by Courtney Thorne-Smith
#106. I understand that it would be smart, career-wise, to line up something, but it wouldn't be smart for my personal life or my sanity. Some people thrive when they're working. I thrive when I'm hanging out with my friends and doing yoga. #Quote by Courtney Thorne-Smith
Careers quotes by Conan O'Brien
#107. A congressman from Texas sent out a tweet comparing President Obama to Hitler. That is ridiculous because at this point in his career Hitler had a much higher approval rating. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Careers quotes by Harry Reid
#108. I understand that during [Sonia Sotomayor's] career, she's written hundreds and hundreds of opinions. I haven't read a single one of them, and if I'm fortunate before we end this, I won't have to read one of them. #Quote by Harry Reid
Careers quotes by Lauryn Hill
#109. I knew his life deserved a chance/But everybody told me to be smart/Look at your career they said/Lauren, baby use your head/But instead I chose to use my heart. #Quote by Lauryn Hill
Careers quotes by Helen Keller
#110. I can not do everything, but I can do something. I must not fail to do the something that I can do. #Quote by Helen Keller
Careers quotes by Larry Eskridge
#111. The Jesus People experience proved to be a staging area for tens of thousands of young Americans who were making up their mind about marriage, schooling, and careers #Quote by Larry Eskridge
Careers quotes by Layne Staley
#112. Our perception of songs that we've written ... the meaning changes from day to day ... to whatever stage we're at in our life and careers. #Quote by Layne Staley
Careers quotes by Taylor Lautner
#113. I guess winning an Oscar is the ultimate dream. A lot of amazing actors go their whole career without even being nominated. So that would definitely be a goal to reach. It's a difficult one, but I'm aiming for it! #Quote by Taylor Lautner
Careers quotes by Marcello Lippi
#114. What happened in the United changing room has happened to me 50 times in my career. I have kicked bottles of mineral water, bags and shoes but I never hit a player. It's a question of technique, and the Scots must have a better technique. #Quote by Marcello Lippi
Careers quotes by David Lee Roth
#115. Let's play with the career, if we can't find anything else to do #Quote by David Lee Roth
Careers quotes by James C. Collins
#116. Don't take care of your career. Take care of your people. They will take care of your career. #Quote by James C. Collins
Careers quotes by Ellen Page
#117. I've always been a huge fan of Patricia's [Rozema ], as a director and as a writer, and she's a friend. For me, Patricia is one of those people who can cross genre in a way that I think has been pretty incredible, if you look at her career and the versatility of her work. #Quote by Ellen Page
Careers quotes by Channing Tatum
#118. There are so many dramatic actors where I would give all of my anything to have their careers, but I don't think I can try to follow anyone. #Quote by Channing Tatum
Careers quotes by Ireland Baldwin
#119. Even when I get to the point where I am acting and performing, where I want to be with my career, I'm never going to think of anyone as lower than me. Everyone's the celebrity of their own life, you know? #Quote by Ireland Baldwin
Careers quotes by Miley Cyrus
#120. You deal. You survive. You grow up and you build a career. And you remember these big/little hardships. They make you human. #Quote by Miley Cyrus
Careers quotes by Bill Dedman
#121. Unlike the United States Congress, which mostly forbids outside employment, state legislatures are generally composed of people with other careers. #Quote by Bill Dedman
Careers quotes by William Joyce
#122. I did not win and in fact I was called into the principal's office for a consultation with my parents. But that was the beginning of my literary career. #Quote by William Joyce
Careers quotes by Anne Robinson
#123. I eventually got a job with a television company, started to see how exciting journalism could be as a career, and decided that was what I wanted to do. #Quote by Anne Robinson
Careers quotes by Auliq Ice
#124. Each job requires a conscious choice of career path, and a different plan of development. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Careers quotes by Selena Gomez
#125. My first big career purchase when I was, like, 17 was a Louis Vuitton laptop bag. Now, seeing the exhibit [Louis Vuitton's "Series 3" exhibition in London], it's exciting because I feel like I kind of know it. It's weird - it's almost like something you grow up with and you just know a little bit about it. Now that I'm immersed in it, it's kind of insane. #Quote by Selena Gomez
Careers quotes by Richard Branson
#126. The music industry is a strange combination of having real and intangible assets: pop bands are brand names in themselves, and at a given stage in their careers their name alone can practically gaurantee hit records. #Quote by Richard Branson
Careers quotes by Meghan Daum
#127. I started my professional career before the blogosphere existed in any sort of meaningful way. I think that my approach as a writer was certainly freer because I wasn't worried, I didn't have commenters on me right from the get-go. I didn't have this instant-reaction culture that young writers have to deal with now. I had different things - I was listed in the phone book and people would look me up and call me and yell at me, but that was about as bad as it got. #Quote by Meghan Daum
Careers quotes by Frederick Lenz
#128. If you want to succeed always associate with winners, people who have understood something. You will notice that they all share something in common, tremendous attention to detail in their personal lives and associations. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Careers quotes by Katherine Albrecht
#129. When I see the move of RFID into universities, it concerns me, ... It is sending a message that not only do we not have to worry about privacy but you can profit from it by a career perspective. #Quote by Katherine Albrecht
Careers quotes by Jeff Foxworthy
#130. Comics don't usually have very long careers, and I'm 22 years into this. #Quote by Jeff Foxworthy
Careers quotes by Isaac Slade
#131. I can't really speak for the guys, but for me, I think I want a build a longer-term career and I feel like we've been really fortunate to have some big success with a few things, but I want smaller success with more things. #Quote by Isaac Slade
Careers quotes by Stephen Covey
#132. Your power to choose your direction of your life allows you to reinvent yourself, to change your future, and to powerfully influence the rest of creation. #Quote by Stephen Covey
Careers quotes by Mark Nepo
#133. It takes six million grains of pollen to seed one peony, and salmon need a lifetime of swimming to find their way home, so we mustn't be alarmed or discouraged when it takes us years to find love or years to understand our calling in life. Everything in nature is given some form of resilience by which it can rehearse finding its way, so that, when it does, it is practiced and ready to seize its moment. This includes us. When things don't work out - when loves unexpectedly end or careers stop unfolding - it can be painful and sad, but refusing this larger picture keeps us from finding our resilience. #Quote by Mark Nepo
Careers quotes by Olivia Stuck
#134. I realize that acting is my job, and I have a life outside of my career to help keep me grounded. It is great to have a job you love! #Quote by Olivia Stuck
Careers quotes by Daniel Handler
#135. The Edith Head Trio, I would say, would be even less of a musical career than playing the accordion, particularly because I played the accordion in The Edith Head Trio. I'm very impressed by your Googling. The Edith Head Trio and another band, Tzamboni, were two bands I was in after college that played at tiny clubs to little acclaim. Our Gypsy tango version of "When Doves Cry" was our biggest hit.But we were not destined for greatness. #Quote by Daniel Handler
Careers quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#136. Were the offer made true, I would engage to run again, from beginning to end, the same career of life. All I would ask should be the privilege of an author, to correct, in a second edition, certain errors of the first. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Careers quotes by Mark Waid
#137. In the world of comics, Jack Kirby and Will Eisner may have been more influential artists, but Joe Kubert was its most influential man. Even if he were to be remembered solely for his body of illustration work, he'd still be one of the greats, but by opening the Kubert School in 1976, he was able to personally mentor and educate literally thousands of successful artists who owe their careers to his teachings. #Quote by Mark Waid
Careers quotes by Tana French
#138. What I warn you to remember is that I am a detective. Our relationship with truth is fundamental but cracked, refracting confusingly like fragmented glass. It is the core of our careers, the endgame of every move we make, and we pursue it with strategies painstakingly constructed of lies and concealment and every variation on deception. #Quote by Tana French
Careers quotes by Bill Nighy
#139. I did actually sit down with a blank sheet of paper once. I think the phone rang and that was the end of my literary career. #Quote by Bill Nighy
Careers quotes by Ruby Wax
#140. My whole career has been an act of revenge. #Quote by Ruby Wax
Careers quotes by Timothy Keller
#141. Just because you cannot realize your highest aspirations in work does not mean you have chosen wrongly, or are not called to your profession, or that you should spend your life looking for the perfect career that is devoid of frustration ... You should expect to be regularly frustrated in your work even though you may be in exactly the right vocation. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Careers quotes by Greg Kinnear
#142. I've never felt like my career has been on fire. #Quote by Greg Kinnear
Careers quotes by Taylor Swift
#143. My career always involved being the person in charge of what I was portraying to people. I never wanted to be an image of something I didn't believe in, an image that somebody else had put together. The idea of that just really scared me, more than the idea of failing. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Careers quotes by Ken Buck
#144. In my political career, I'd like to see a constitutional balanced budget amendment. #Quote by Ken Buck
Careers quotes by Kenny Chesney
#145. I'm proud of the fact that I'm at a point in my career that if I want to take a little bit of a left turn and make an album that is more hushed, more acoustic and more personal, that I can do it, #Quote by Kenny Chesney
Careers quotes by Dennis Ritchie
#146. Obviously, the person who had most influence on my career was Ken Thompson. #Quote by Dennis Ritchie
Careers quotes by Gretchen Mol
#147. It's hard to know really how it's going to happen, but the career ebbs and flows and now there's a nicer feeling of interest than there has been at other times. #Quote by Gretchen Mol
Careers quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#148. Potter for me is something that's been giving me these amazing opportunities to start a career and learn while I'm doing, which is the best way to learn. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Careers quotes by Robin Van Persie
#149. I look at the occasion, and this was one of the biggest so far in my career. It was a bit of a gamble, but I spotted Casillas off his line before the cross came in. It was a header, but a lobbed header
a great goal. #Quote by Robin Van Persie
Careers quotes by Marnie Stern
#150. It seems to me, that's the only thing that ends up being really fulfilling or satisfying - your career. #Quote by Marnie Stern
Careers quotes by Rashida Jones
#151. The minute you feel like there's nothing left to learn, whether it's with your career or life, you're done. #Quote by Rashida Jones
Careers quotes by Cate Blanchett
#152. I admire the work of brilliant actresses such as Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Helen Mirren, who have had such varied careers. They have never stopped working, and they are as great today as they ever were. #Quote by Cate Blanchett
Careers quotes by Kate Moss
#153. I don't think modelling is a career I'm going to pursue. #Quote by Kate Moss
Careers quotes by Clint Eastwood
#154. If anybody asks me what I attribute the longevity of my career to, then I say it's because I was never satisfied with being a cowboy in the plains of Spain and later I was never satisfied with just playing a detective in San Francisco, and constantly just pushing the envelope. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Careers quotes by Kristen Bell
#155. Someone once told me it's more important what you turn down than what you take, and I think that rings true, especially when you're trying to make decisions about how you want to be viewed. It's hard, because I also want to have fun, and if there's a project that's super-small or low-budget or silly but it happens to have friends involved, I'll always take it, because my number-one priority is that I want to have fun with my career. #Quote by Kristen Bell
Careers quotes by Dalia Grybauskaite
#156. If women decide that their mission, their political career, balances out what they have to give up, they can be and are equally successful as men. #Quote by Dalia Grybauskaite
Careers quotes by Sonja Lyubomirsky
#157. Women's magazines will often ask me things like, 'All right, I need six five-minute happiness strategies.' And I say, well, there aren't any five-minute happiness strategies. This is something you have to do kind of every day for the rest of your life. Just like if you want to raise moral children or if you want to advance in your career. It's a goal you pursue your whole life. #Quote by Sonja Lyubomirsky
Careers quotes by Ali MacGraw
#158. When one stops working at the height of one's career, it's just stupid not to say, 'I want to make sure I have a house.' #Quote by Ali MacGraw
Careers quotes by Jack Welch
#159. You never know how diverse your career can be. I think it's wonderful. My life has always been the next page, not the last page. #Quote by Jack Welch
Careers quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#160. I view the major features of my own odyssey as a set of mostly fortunate contingencies. I was not destined by inherited mentality or family tradition to become a paleontologist. I can locate no tradition for scientific or intellectual careers anywhere on either side of my eastern European Jewish background. [ ... ] I view my serious and lifelong commitment to baseball in entirely the same manner: purely as a contingent circumstance of numerous, albeit not entirely capricious, accidents. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Careers quotes by Steve Merrick
#161. Ok is there anyone here who isn't injured?" She let the silence last a bit longer theatrically, then laughed. "Why are we still here?" Nods of confusion and one derisory snort later she laughed again. "Ok are we or are we not frakking commonwealth soldiers? Have we or have we not survived repeated balls ups throughout all of our careers." One wolf whistle and a lot of nods. "Are we going to give up. #Quote by Steve Merrick
Careers quotes by Jessie Willcox Smith
#162. To marry and have children is the ideal life for a woman. What career could ever be as fine? To give the world splendid men and women-isn't that the noblest thing a woman could possibly do? #Quote by Jessie Willcox Smith
Careers quotes by Jennifer Lopez
#163. If anyone can figure out how to balance my celebrity and my dual careers in music and film, it's me. I don't feel frightened; I feel challenged. #Quote by Jennifer Lopez
Careers quotes by Michael Josephson
#164. Physical courage to a person of honour is easier and less risky than acts that could subject him to embarrassment or humiliation or a diminished career or reputation. These things he must live with. To die for honor is an easier thought to bear. #Quote by Michael Josephson
Careers quotes by Mae West
#165. Men? Sure, I've known lots of them. But I never found one I liked well enough to marry. Besides, I've always been busy with my work. Marriage is a career in itself and to make a success of it you've got to keep working at it. So until I can give the. #Quote by Mae West
Careers quotes by Mark Messier
#166. Like I said, a 30-year-old hockey player, even when I came to New York when I was 30, I was on the downside of my career, pretty much the end of my career. #Quote by Mark Messier
Careers quotes by Billie Burke
#167. There is no reason why marriage should necessarily compel an actress to forego her career. #Quote by Billie Burke
Careers quotes by Micky Quinn
#168. My career could have been prolonged for longer #Quote by Micky Quinn
Careers quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#169. Called to the throne by the voice of the people, my maxim has always been: A career open to talent without distinction of birth. It is this system of equality for which the European oligarchy detests me #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Careers quotes by Linda Eder
#170. I ultimately realized we had gotten together for the music. It was such a huge thing in our lives. We were at the same age, same place in our careers, and we had great fun. But when I became a mother and was at home, I realized that in reality we had very little else in common. I wasn't happy, wasn't getting what I needed. It's tough to realize that. But while a big change can be painful, it also was for the best. I'm happier now than I've ever been. #Quote by Linda Eder
Careers quotes by Paul Newman
#171. I started my career giving a clinic in bad acting in the film, "The Silver Chalice," and now I'm playing a crusty old man who's an animated automobile [in "Cars"]. That's a creative arc for you, isn't it? #Quote by Paul Newman
Careers quotes by Cary Fukunaga
#172. The only pressure is the pressure I put on myself, that's up to be I guess to mitigate that. I think there's always pressure that you make the right choice for the next film. You don't know what the outcome is gonna be, there's always potential to find length to your career as well. Now I'm so far from any other job skills that if I don't make movies. #Quote by Cary Fukunaga
Careers quotes by Richard Dent
#173. I'm very happyWhen you start a career you never think about the Hall of Fame ... watching a guy like Walter Payton, he would say 'Don't do what I say, do what I do.' If you can do your thing the way he does his, the possibility is you will get in the Hall of Fame. #Quote by Richard Dent
Careers quotes by Marianne Williamson
#174. Achievement doesn't come from what we do, but from who we are. Our worldly power results from our personal power. Our career is an extension of our personality. People who profoundly achieve aren't necessarily people who do so much, they're people around whom things get done. Mahatma Gandhi and JFK were great examples of this. Their great achievements lay in all the energy they stirred in other people, the invisible forces they unleashed around them. By touching their own depths, they touched the depths within others. That kind of charisma, the power to affect what happens on the earth, from an invisible realm within is the natural right and function of the son of god. New frontiers are internal ones, the real stretch is always within us. Instead of expanding our ability or willingness to go out and get anything, we expand our ability to receive what is already here for us. Personal power emanates from someone who takes life seriously. The universe takes us as seriously as we take it. There is no greater seriousness than the full appreciation of the power and importance of love. Miracles flow from the recognition that love is the purpose of our career. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Careers quotes by Lauren Willig
#175. There's a horrible stereotype of both the romance writer and the romance reader as somehow undereducated and unprofessional, when in fact there are a number of incredibly well-educated professional women who have chosen to leave their other careers and go into writing romance. #Quote by Lauren Willig
Careers quotes by Sidney Hook
#176. Everyone recognizes a distinction between knowledge and wisdom ... Wisdom is a kind of knowledge. It is knowledge of the nature, career, and consequences of human values. Since these cannot be separated from the human organism and the social scene, the moral ways of man cannot be understood without knowledge of the ways of things and institutions. #Quote by Sidney Hook
Careers quotes by John Maeda
#177. I have a confession: I'm not a man of simplicity. I spent my entire early career making complex stuff. Lots of complex stuff. #Quote by John Maeda
Careers quotes by Ted Williams
#178. Joe DiMaggio was the greatest all-around player I ever saw. His career can not be summed up in numbers and awards. It might sound corny, but he had a profound and lasting impact on the country. #Quote by Ted Williams
Careers quotes by Benedict Cumberbatch
#179. Do awards change careers? Well, I haven't heard of many stories where that's the case. It's a fun excuse to meet colleagues and celebrate people who've done well that year in certain people's eyes, and it's nothing more than that. #Quote by Benedict Cumberbatch
Careers quotes by Gregory Nicotero
#180. I really had the right nose for making the right decisions, in terms of which projects to do and which projects to stay away from. The people that I ended up becoming very close to in my career are the guys who inspire me. #Quote by Gregory Nicotero
Careers quotes by Jens Lehmann
#181. It was the hardest decision of his coaching career so I accepted that I should be No 1 and that was it #Quote by Jens Lehmann
Careers quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#182. I learned early in my career, where you get so wrapped up and so excited, that all of a sudden you don't think. So I worked very hard to keep myself suppressed. And that's one of the reasons I wasn't gregarious with the gallery. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Careers quotes by Robert Knepper
#183. When people come up to me and say 'I hate you' or 'I love to hate you,' it's not the usual response that I thought I would've gotten halfway into my career. And then they say, 'I love your work.' #Quote by Robert Knepper
Careers quotes by Keri Russell
#184. Sex has never been something I've done in my career - at all. #Quote by Keri Russell
Careers quotes by Robin Thicke
#185. I spent my whole career playing it safe, being a gentleman, never doing anything controversial. #Quote by Robin Thicke
Careers quotes by Eddie Redmayne
#186. What's really interesting about actors, is that we all have opinions on how people's careers look, but I think you never have any idea of your own, or what other people think of you. #Quote by Eddie Redmayne
Careers quotes by John Green
#187. I wouldn't have a career if it weren't for independent bookstores. #Quote by John Green
Careers quotes by Margaret Halsey

Careers quotes by Rita Rudner
#190. We live in Los Angeles, where you are expected to move every two to four years, so people can see how well your career is going. #Quote by Rita Rudner
Careers quotes by Al Yankovic
#191. One of the hardest things I've had to deal with in my career is keeping my material topical even though I only release albums every three or four years. #Quote by Al Yankovic
Careers quotes by Joss Whedon
#192. This is something that I do consider to be good advice: I took my first paycheck and I put it in the goddamn bank. Then I took my second paycheck and put it in the goddamn bank. I had seen the roller coaster of my father's career - top of the world, then unemployed - and I never wanted to take a job because I needed money. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Careers quotes by Kimora Lee Simmons
#193. Yes, I live a crazy, exciting, whatever life, but I do think it's quite relatable because it has to be - I'm just a girl from St Louis, Missouri that has lived life like anyone else. There are things that are crazy and over the top, but the basic thread is my family, my career, trying to live and pursuing my dreams. #Quote by Kimora Lee Simmons
Careers quotes by Terry Gross
#194. I think there's always an expectation when you're a first generation, especially a first-generation Nigerian, of sort of being a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer. And so, you know, sort of my initial pursuits into the arts and that I was going to pursue film as a career didn't confuse them, but it was definitely something that they were scared about. #Quote by Terry Gross
Careers quotes by Nigel Slater
#195. Food has been my career, my hobby, and, it must be said, my escape. #Quote by Nigel Slater
Careers quotes by Anna Wintour
#196. I wasn't academically successful. And maybe I've spent a lot of my career trying to make up for that. #Quote by Anna Wintour
Careers quotes by Michael Scott
#197. I don't want somebody sucking up to me because they think I am going to help their career. I want them sucking up to me because they genuinely love me. #Quote by Michael Scott
Careers quotes by Ice Cube
#198. I'm not trying to turn into Eddie Murphy, and just do kids movies the rest of my career. I'm going to still do a wide variety of movies, as well as do hardcore rap. #Quote by Ice Cube
Careers quotes by Billy Bob Thornton
#199. When I was coming up in the '80s television, if you were on television that meant either you were a young actor just coming up like I was, or you were an older actor whose career was over and you had to go on television. #Quote by Billy Bob Thornton
Careers quotes by Jessica Alba
#200. It's not always so great to be objectified, but I don't feel I have much of a choice right now. I'm young in my career. I know I have to strike when the iron is hot. #Quote by Jessica Alba
