Versions quotes by Gloria E Anzaldua
#1. Like all people, we perceive the version of reality that our culture communicates. Like others having or living in more than one culture, we get multiple, often opposing messages. The coming together of two self-consistent but habitually incomparable frames of reference causes un choque, a cultural collision. #Quote by Gloria E Anzaldua
Versions quotes by Sam Harris
#2. Meditation ... puts into question more or less everything you tend to do in your search for happiness. But if you lose sight of this, it can become just another strategy for seeking happiness a more refined version of the problem you already have. #Quote by Sam Harris
Versions quotes by Robert M. Price
#3. If, when we compare two versions of a story, the second known to be a retelling of the first, and find that the second has more of a miraculous element, we may reasonably conclude we have legendary (or midrashic or whatever) embellishment. The tale has grown in the telling. This sort of comparison is common in extrabiblical research and no one holds that it cannot properly indicate legend formation there. #Quote by Robert M. Price
Versions quotes by Maggie Gyllenhaal
#4. I think sex is very interesting for most people, but I'm interested in sex as a way of communication, I'm not that interested in the fantasy version of a sex scene. #Quote by Maggie Gyllenhaal
Versions quotes by Judy Blunt
#5. I came to recognize the landscape of my life in the lives of many women. Their stories and the places they spoke of spanned a world beyond my experience, from mill towns to suburbs, from logging camps to ethnic neighborhoods, from inner cities to Indian reservations. Few shared my place of origin or the events of my life, but many, it seems, shared my experience. Listening to their stories, I came to understand how women can be isolated by circumstances as well as by distance, and how our experiences, though geographically distinct, often translated into the same feelings. Away from the physical presence of my past, I found it easy to argue that what mattered most was the story, the truth of what we tell ourselves, the versions we pass along to our daughters. But as I stood in the living room of my rock house that afternoon, I was again reminded of the enormous power of this prairie, its silence and the whisper I made inside it. I had forgotten how easily one person can be lost here. #Quote by Judy Blunt
Versions quotes by Garth Brooks
#6. I'm sitting in the drive-through and I've got my three girls in the back and this station comes on and it's playing "Jailhouse Rock," the original version, and my girls are jumping up and down, going nuts. I'm looking around at them and they've heard Dad's music all the time and I don't see that out of them. #Quote by Garth Brooks
Versions quotes by Julie Murphy
#7. Lucy always said that the greatest friends have nothing and everything in common all at once. Y'all girls are different versions of the same story, she would say. #Quote by Julie Murphy
Versions quotes by Tom Hooper
#8. I think we all have blocks between us and the best version of ourselves, whether it's shyness, insecurity, anxiety, whether it's a physical block, and the story of a person overcoming that block to their best self. It's truly inspiring because I think all of us are engaged in that every day. #Quote by Tom Hooper
Versions quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#9. Unconditional love goes beyond holding on and letting go. Real love is about truth. It's about looking at what's really going on instead of the stories we tell ourselves about it. It's about being able to love someone from afar, when we need to, because we see that closeness turns us into the worst versions of ourselves. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Versions quotes by Dana Gould
#10. If The Beatles represent the most successful version you can be of a thing, then by that definition The Rolling Stones are The Beatles of music, not counting The Beatles. John Lennon is The Beatles of The Beatles. #Quote by Dana Gould
Versions quotes by Mary Elizabeth Ellis
#11. It's fun to be debaucherous and the worst version of yourself. #Quote by Mary Elizabeth Ellis
Versions quotes by Gwen Ifill
#12. I'm not in love. I'm not out of love. I'm just trying to find some version of the truth. #Quote by Gwen Ifill
Versions quotes by Ricky Gervais
#13. My favourite shows of the year are House of Cards, the Scandinavian versions of The Killing and The Bridge, and my guilty pleasure is everything MMA. Ultimate Fighter is amazing. #Quote by Ricky Gervais
Versions quotes by Steve Toutonghi
#14. But think about this, maybe even though there are infinite versions of you, maybe every single one of them is an asshole. #Quote by Steve Toutonghi
Versions quotes by Michael Horton
#15. There are versions of the pro-gay and anti-gay agenda that assume a simplistic rather than simple understanding of the issue - at least from a biblical perspective. Reject it or embrace it: that's the easy choice that makes for great sound-bites but ruins lives. #Quote by Michael Horton
Versions quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#16. The better he got to know her, the more it felt like he did when he was swimming. There stopped being dissonant versions of him. There was only Gansey, now, now, now. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Versions quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#17. My uncle used to let me pretend they were bricks," Linden says, startling me. He eases a thick hardcover from the shelf, hefts it in either hand, and then places it back. "I like to build houses out of them. They never came out exactly like I'd planned, but that's good. It taught me that there are three versions of things: the one I see in my mind, and the one that carries onto the paper, and then what it ultimately becomes."
For some reason I'm finding it difficult to meet his eyes. I nod at one of the lower shelves and say, "Maybe it's because in your mind you don't have to worry about building materials. So you're not as limited."
"That's astute," he says. He pauses. "You've always been astute about things. #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Versions quotes by China Mieville
#18. I think the role of science fiction is not at all to prophesy. I think it is to tell interesting, vivid, strange stories that at their best are dreamlike intense versions and visions of today. #Quote by China Mieville
Versions quotes by Don Mihsill
#19. I do not know if this is love
or what love is
or if love's a thing, if it can be
worn like an old coat, or felt
like harsh fabric on naked flesh, or
if it is a sensation, like that first time
the brakes of my bike failed while riding downhill or
the climax of masturbation, or
if love is an invention, and we all
manufacture our own versions -
some bright, some dull, some marbled,
but all with labels and stickers
that say: this is love.

I do not know what love is
or if I can say what I think love is,
could be or should be. If we were
to ever sit on the marble floor,
on one of those dry, electricity free, 45 degree
Delhi nights, sharing a drink of Old Monk's
and I were to tell you that this is love,
slap me for I would either be drunk or a liar.
and if i were drunk, I won't be drunk on love or your loving
for I don't know what love is or if it can be known.

Maybe, one night, after thirty years of searching
for what love means, we will sit outside -
you and I -
amidst the debris of our meanderings,
our bent backs resting
on the rusted iron railing,
our skin pimpled, throats scratched
from prayers uttered to absent gods and
we would be in love and believe that love is this:

love is all the spaces, non-events,
the unspoken words and everything
in between the first second of these
thirty years #Quote by Don Mihsill
Versions quotes by George Clooney
#20. People forget that I was married. I love that, Will he get married? I don't talk about it because I don't think about it. I don't ever question other peoples' versions of how they live their lives or what they do. #Quote by George Clooney
Versions quotes by Arundhati Roy
#21. The corporate revolution will collapse if we refuse to buy what they are selling - their ideas, their version of history, their wars, their weapons, their notion of inevitability. Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Versions quotes by Stewart Brand
#22. Certain knowledge of what to fight for, and what to fight against, gives meaning to life and provides its own version of discipline: never give up. That kind of meaning is illusory, I now believe, and blinkered. Fealty to a mystical absolute is a formula for disaster, especially in transformative times. #Quote by Stewart Brand
Versions quotes by Scott Crow
#23. The realizations of anarchist ideas and practices are like sociopolitical ecosystems. Local versions resemble each other, but they are endlessly adaptive and everywhere different to meet their needs in their environments. Anarchism can be adapted to meet the culture, economics, ecology, and politics of various people or communities. That's the beauty of it. #Quote by Scott Crow
Versions quotes by Marcus Samuelsson
#24. While eating gluten-free may help you lose weight initially because it eliminates baked goods, one has to be smart when choosing replacement options because the gluten-free versions often have the same number of calories. #Quote by Marcus Samuelsson
Versions quotes by Bradley Jersak
#25. In modern street-English, we use "hell" as a catchall term to describe the bad place (usually red hot) where sinful people are condemned to punishment and torment after they die. This simplistic, selective, and horrifying perception of hell is due in large part to nearly 400 years of the King James Version's monopoly in English-speaking congregations (not to mention centuries of imaginative religious art). Rather than acknowledge the variety of terms, images, and concepts that the Bible uses for divine judgment, the KJV translators opted to combine them all under the single term "hell." In truth, the array of biblical pictures and meanings that this one word is expected to convey is so vast that they appear contradictory. For example, is hell a lake of fire or a place of utter darkness? Is it a purifying forge or a torture chamber? Is it exclusion from God's presence or the consuming fire of God's glory?

While modern scholarship acknowledges the mis- or over-translation of Sheol, Hades, and Gehenna as "hell" - especially if by "hell" we refer automatically to the eternal punishment of the wicked in conscious torment in a lake of fire - the thoroughly discussed limitations of hell language and imagery have been slow to permeate the theology of pulpits and pews in much of the church. Why the reluctance? Do we resist out of ignorance? Or are we afraid that abandoning infernalism implies abandoning faithfulness to Scripture and sound doctrine? After all, for so long we #Quote by Bradley Jersak
Versions quotes by Alasdair MacIntyre
#26. Modern conservatives are for the most part engaged in conserving only older rather than later versions of liberal individualism. Their own core doctrine is as liberal and as individualist as that of self-avowed liberals. #Quote by Alasdair MacIntyre
Versions quotes by Robert Charles Wilson
#27. It's partly the Southernization of America, in that the Southern working-class version of redneck is becoming the national version, and it's good-natured, it has humor and, in some ways, it's a performance. #Quote by Robert Charles Wilson
Versions quotes by Gillian Jacobs
#28. I think that there are a lot of really beautiful Christmas carols, and then sometimes there are horrible renditions of them that are played to death in malls that make me sad. I try to avoid stores where they're playing bad versions of Christmas songs on repeat. #Quote by Gillian Jacobs
Versions quotes by Adam Tooze
#29. The Third Reich made it its mission to use the authority of the state to coordinate efforts within industry to devise standardized and simplified versions of key consumer commodities. These would then be produced at the lowest possible price, enabling the German population to achieve an immediate breakthrough to a higher standard of living. The epithet which was generally attached to these products was Volk: the Volksempfaenger (radio), Volkswohnung (apartments), Volkswagen, Volkskuehlschrank (refrigerator), Volkstraktor (tractor).34 This list contains only those products that enjoyed the official backing of one or more agencies in the Third Reich. Private producers, however, had long appreciated that the term 'Volk' had good marketing potential, and they, too, joined the bandwagon. Amongst the various products they touted were Volks-gramophone (people's gramophone), Volksmotorraeder (people's motorbikes) and Volksnaehmaschinen (people's sewing machines). In fact, by 1933 the use of the term 'Volk' had become so inflationary that the newly established German advertising council was forced to ban the unlicensed use of the term. #Quote by Adam Tooze
Versions quotes by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
#30. Once you've crawled into what's commonly thought of as the sordid underbelly of life, you realize it's all just different versions of normal. #Quote by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
Versions quotes by Karen Russell
#31. If you're short on time, that would be the two-word version of our story: we fell. #Quote by Karen Russell
Versions quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#32. We realized that the version of the world they rendered for us was not the world they really believed in ... #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Versions quotes by John Lennon
#33. 'Revolution' . There were two versions of that song but the underground left only picked up on the one that said 'count me out'. #Quote by John Lennon
Versions quotes by Will Oldham
#34. A record is something that isn't real or true. It's like cinema. It's a construction of something hyper-real and surreal and unreal all at the same time. You make a space that doesn't really exist. One of the big joys of being in this line of work is building the recorded versions of the songs. #Quote by Will Oldham
Versions quotes by Nicholson Baker
#35. The Pop-Tarts page is often aflutter. Pop-Tarts, it says as of today (February 8, 2008), were discontinued in Australia in 2005. Maybe that's true. Before that it said that Pop-Tarts were discontinued in Korea. Before that Australia. Several days ago it said: "Pop-Tarts is german for Little Iced Pastry O' Germany." Other things I learned from earlier versions: More than two trillion Pop-Tarts are sold each year. George Washington invented them. They were developed in the early 1960s in China. Popular flavors are "frosted strawberry, frosted brown sugar cinnamon, and semen." Pop-Tarts are a "flat Cookie." No: "Pop-Tarts are a flat Pastry, KEVIN MCCORMICK is a FRIGGIN LOSER notto mention a queer inch." No: "A Pop-Tart is a flat condom." Once last fall the whole page was replaced with "NIPPLES AND BROCCOLI!!!!! #Quote by Nicholson Baker
Versions quotes by Jeremy Clarkson
#36. I'd like to consider Ferrari as a scaled down version of God. #Quote by Jeremy Clarkson
Versions quotes by Tim Gunn
#37. I really cherish having my private time and being alone and being able to decompress. It's my own version of meditating. #Quote by Tim Gunn
Versions quotes by David Anthony Durham
#38. No, make something different from war. Don't allow your enemies to be enemies. Make them something else, because otherwise they have a power over you that they should not have. If you think in the same ways as the past, you will only get new versions of the past. Think differently. That's what I'm saying. #Quote by David Anthony Durham
Versions quotes by Tim Minchin
#39. If anyone can show me one example in the history of the world of a single spiritual person who has been able to show either empirically or logically the existence of a higher power with any consciousness or interest in the human race or ability to punish or reward humans for their moral choices or that there is any reason other than fear to believe in any version of an afterlife, I will give you my piano, one of my legs and my wife. #Quote by Tim Minchin
Versions quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
#40. Google, I think, in some ways, is more competitive and certainly is trying to build their own little version of Facebook. #Quote by Mark Zuckerberg
Versions quotes by Henry Cavill
#41. My version of Superman is essentially of a guy who has spent his whole life alone. #Quote by Henry Cavill
Versions quotes by Matthew Donnelly
#42. There are 2 versions of Self Image. Inner and Outer.
Get in touch with the inner self image and dispose of any concept of the outer world. Feel the energy that comes from this image and start being true from source of this energy. The source of god. #Quote by Matthew Donnelly
Versions quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
#43. Stuff like photos and events and groups - we've built pretty basic versions of those apps to start but they ended up being so much more used because of their social integrations. #Quote by Mark Zuckerberg
Versions quotes by Nat Friedman
#44. We plan to support Exchange 2003 as soon as it is released. We already have the prerelease versions from MSDN. #Quote by Nat Friedman
Versions quotes by B.B. King
#45. I don't have a favorite song that I've written. But I do have a favorite song: 'Always on My Mind,' the Willie Nelson version. If I could sing it like he do, I would sing it every night. I like the story it tells. #Quote by B.B. King
Versions quotes by Elizabeth Wurtzel
#46. I mean, if you were to find a shattered mirror, find all the pieces, all the shards and all the tiny chips, and have whatever skill and patience it took to put all that broken glass back together so that it was complete once again, the restored mirror would still be spiderwebbed with cracks, it would still be a useless glued version of its former self, which could show only fragmented reflections of anyone looking into it. Some things are beyond repair. And that was me. #Quote by Elizabeth Wurtzel
Versions quotes by Salman Khan
#47. Can you imagine if someone told Einstein, Okay, wrap up this relativity thing, we're moving on to European history? Or said to Michelangelo, Time's up for the ceiling, now go paint the walls. Yet versions of this snuffing out of creativity and boundary-stretching thought happen all the time in conventional schools. #Quote by Salman Khan
Versions quotes by Joel Grus
#48. This means that, where appropriate, we will dive into mathematical equations, mathematical intuition, mathematical axioms, and cartoon versions of big mathematical ideas. #Quote by Joel Grus
Versions quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#49. Religionists are clinging to little, positive, verbal, formal versions of the moral law ... while the laws of the Law, the great circling truths whose only adequate symbol is the material laws, the astronomy etc. are all unobserved, and sneered at when spoken of. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Versions quotes by Sharon Kendrick
#50. The flowers in the desert which bloomed and died were just different versions of their own small lives. #Quote by Sharon Kendrick
Versions quotes by Kristen Stewart
#51. The best aspects of every vampire, with all of their gifts, what makes them really special is just an enhanced version of what they were when they were human. #Quote by Kristen Stewart
Versions quotes by Larry Correia
#52. You're the modern versions of Beowulf, of St. George, of Odysseus. You're Van Helsing with firepower. You're Jack and the Beanstalk with automatic weapons. We're walking in the valley of the shadow of death, but we shall fear no evil! Because evil is about to get a stake put through its black heart because we are the baddest mother-fuckers to ever set foot in the valley! #Quote by Larry Correia
Versions quotes by Queen Latifah
#53. If I ran into a 19-year-old version of myself, I'd just tell her to live, full out. I might also tell her to go ahead and have a few babies and not worry about the timing of it. #Quote by Queen Latifah
Versions quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#54. The traveler to the United States will do wellto prepare himself for the class-consciousness of the natives. This differs from the already familiar English version in being more extreme and based more firmly on the conviction that the class to which the speaker belongs is inherently superior to all others. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Versions quotes by Lauren Kate
#55. Love makes people the best versions of themselves. #Quote by Lauren Kate
Versions quotes by Robert Scholes
#56. All writing, all composition, is construction. we do not imitate the world, we construct versions of it. there is no mimesis, only poesis. no recording. only constructing. #Quote by Robert Scholes
Versions quotes by Neil R. Lightfoot
#57. Our New Testament text of today is a reconstructed or restored text. It has been reconstructed by modern scholarship from three independent lines of witnesses: the manuscripts, the versions, and the writings of early Christians (Church Fathers). In #Quote by Neil R. Lightfoot
Versions quotes by Walter Isaacson
#58. When there are multiple versions of a story, you really have three ways to go. You can pick the most sensational version. You can try to balance things in your gut to get to what you think is the honest truth. Or you can err on the side of kindness. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Versions quotes by Serena Valentino
#59. We will be different people after tonight. Different versions of ourselves. #Quote by Serena Valentino
Versions quotes by David Carson
#60. If I'm doing a logo, I'll do it in black and white. Once the form is feeling right, only then do I start exploring the color palettes. A good example was the process of rebranding the Salvador Dali Museum. I did at least 100 versions in black and white. #Quote by David Carson
Versions quotes by Dennis Haysbert
#61. I played a little basketball, but basketball interfered with theater season. That's when we did our term plays and did nutshell versions of Shakespeare for English classes. And, believe me, I got a fair amount of looks from the guys on the team. 'You're in theater but you can play football?' #Quote by Dennis Haysbert
Versions quotes by Dolly Wells
#62. We came up with this idea of a power struggle between two people who really love each other, and 'Doll & Em' took off. Calling it by our own names was the director's idea, but hopefully people will understand that we're playing versions of ourselves. #Quote by Dolly Wells
Versions quotes by Dinaw Mengestu
#63. The imagined memories had to have as much weight as the real, or we had to at least pretend they did to such a degree that they just very well might have. And so I never questioned Angela about that particular story, or about all the troubling things that it pointed to, content to believe that at least in this version things worked for her better than they did in the one I never heard. #Quote by Dinaw Mengestu
Versions quotes by Paul Buchheit
#64. The intrinsic path to success is to focus on being the person that you are, and put all of your energy and drive into being the best possible version of yourself. #Quote by Paul Buchheit
Versions quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#65. A happy love is a single story, a disintegrating one is two or more competing, conflicting versions, and a disintegrated one lies at your feet like a shattered mirror, each shard reflecting a different story, that it was wonderful, that it was terrible, if only this had, if only that hadn't. The stories don't fit back together, and it's the end of stories, those devices we carry like shells and shields and blinkers and occasionally maps and compasses. The people close to you become mirrors and journals in which you record your history, the instruments that help you know yourself and remember yourself, and you do the same for them. When they vanish so does the use, the appreciation, the understanding of those small anecdotes, catchphrases, jokes: they become a book slammed shut or burnt. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Versions quotes by Sarah Ockler
#66. It's complicated. I think when bad things happen - whether someone dies or people argue or split up - you get to a point where it's just too hard to go back. There's so much lost. So many versions of the truth. So many versions of how things might've turned out differently. We all long for what could have been. For some people, it's just easier to move forward and try to forget. #Quote by Sarah Ockler
Versions quotes by Halle Berry
#67. I've always thought what was I before I was this and then what will I be when I leave here. I really had a hard time always accepting that at some point I'm just going to turn to dust and ashes and never be again and that the journey would stop. I believe that we are souls, kind of like a version of what our movie presents, and we come here again and again until we arrive at our highest evolution, and what happens after that I don't know. #Quote by Halle Berry
Versions quotes by Stephen Altrogge
#68. But, if we want our churches to thrive and our devotional lives to flourish, we absolutely must let God be God. We cannot settle for warm, fuzzy, "feel good movie of the year" versions of God. We cannot settle for a God who exists only to meet our needs and make us happy. We cannot settle for a God who is boring and irrelevant. We cannot settle for a God of our own imagination. We must know the ferocious, untamable God. We must let God out of the boxes we have created. We must come face to face with God as he really is, with all his sharp edges and blazing glory and heart-rending beauty. We must encounter the God who makes mountains melt like wax and the angels cover their eyes and the rivers leap for joy. If we are going to love God with all of our heart, soul, mind, and strength, we must truly know God. We must know him as he truly is, not as we imagine him to be. We must come to grips with the God who has revealed himself in scripture. #Quote by Stephen Altrogge
Versions quotes by Laura Z. Hobson
#69. He who could write so easily, who could spend a thousand words down along his plunging fingers on the green-rubber keyboard of his machine, had stumbled like a first-grader over this single paragraph. A dozen times he had begun it and written into it a naked desperation; a dozen times he had begun it and written into it the frosted mathematics of logic. Finally he'd written out quickly the sentences that kept cropping up in all the versions. Those must be, to whatever censor there was in him, the most acceptable ones. He sealed it without rereading it and went out to mail it. An hour later he despised himself for having sent it. #Quote by Laura Z. Hobson
Versions quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#70. I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Versions quotes by Jane Mayer
#71. The military is trying very hard right now to put a better face on Guantanamo, and I think they actually have tried to rid some of the extreme versions of abuse that we have read about. #Quote by Jane Mayer
Versions quotes by Julia Cameron
#72. Rather than being taught to ask ourselves who we are, we are schooled to ask others. We are, in effect, trained to listen to others' versions of ourselves. #Quote by Julia Cameron
Versions quotes by Leila Sales
#73. Tonight the Internet seemed filled with versions of me, like a fun house filled with mirrors. Some of them made me look prettier, and some of them made me look uglier, and some of them chopped me right in half, but none of them were right. #Quote by Leila Sales
Versions quotes by Dianna Agron
#74. We are all the best versions of ourselves when we have love and acceptance in our lives. #Quote by Dianna Agron
Versions quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#75. The reason why the continental European is, to the Englishman or American, so surprisingly ignorant of the Bible, is that the authorized English version is a great work of literary art, and the continental versions are comparatively artless. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Versions quotes by John Steinbeck
#76. I remember thinking how wise a man was HC Andersen. The king told his secrets down a well, and his secrets were safe. A man who tells secrets or stories must think of who is hearing or reading, for a story has as many versions as it has readers. Everyone takes what he wants or can from it and thus changes it to his measure. Some pick out parts and reject the rest, some strain the story through their mesh of prejudice. Some paint it with their own delight. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Versions quotes by M.L. Stedman
#77. It occurs to him that there are different versions of himself to farewell - the abandoned eight-year-old; the delusional soldier who hovered somewhere in hell; the lightkeeper who dared to leave his heart undefended. Like Russian dolls, these lives sit within him. #Quote by M.L. Stedman
Versions quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#78. admired their own steadfast lives. Right up to the day when hope in all its versions went out of stock, #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Versions quotes by Adrian Tomine
#79. I never go home and take out those business cards and go to those websites. But if there was a mini-comic here in my hand, I'd read it while I ate my lunch. I'm also probably one of the few remaining holdouts who hasn't consented to making the e-book versions of all my work, which is annoying to some of my publishers. #Quote by Adrian Tomine
Versions quotes by J.R. Ward
#80. I'm going to stay here and see if he comes back," Wrath said as the double doors opened and V strode in. "I want the rest of you out searching for him in the city, but before you go, first let's get an update from our very own Katie Couric." He nodded at Vishous. "Katie?"
V's glare was the ocular version of a fully extended middle finger #Quote by J.R. Ward
Versions quotes by Kenneth Branagh
#81. Across all Cinderella versions it was clear that the 21st century was not very much in evidence, particularly in the character of Cinderella so it seemed, it felt actually as though it hadn't been done for quite some time, not with the kind of lushness that we could do it with, with an absolute removal of the passivity of Cinderella and finding an amusing way, a lighthearted but significant way of making her proactive and not a girl who's life is about waiting for a bloke. #Quote by Kenneth Branagh
Versions quotes by Anthony Jeselnik
#82. I think a theater show is a pure version of me doing my material. The theater crowd is a bit more polite, there really aren't hecklers, and there are a lot of people there to see me, and they're excited about the jokes and hanging out with me for a show. #Quote by Anthony Jeselnik
Versions quotes by Roz Savage
#83. A few years ago I wrote two versions of my obituary, the one I wanted and the one I was heading for. They were very different. I realized I needed to make some big changes if I was going to look back and be proud of my life. I am making those changes, and now I have a life worth living. #Quote by Roz Savage
Versions quotes by Isabel Allende
#84. My husband, who is a lawyer, is very careful with words and with the truth. He thinks that the truth exists, and it's something that is beyond questioning, which I think is totally absurd. I have several versions of how we met and how wonderful he was and all that. At least twenty. And I'm sure that they are all true. He has one. And I'm positive that it's not true. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Versions quotes by Stacey Ballis
#85. I've been developing killer updated versions of things like Black Forest cake, now with bittersweet devil's food cake, a dried-cherry conserve, and whipped vanilla creme fraiche. I've perfected a new carrot cake, adding candied chunks of parsnips and rum-soaked golden raisins to the cake and mascarpone to the frosting. And my cheeky take on homemade Pop-Tarts will be available in three flavors- blueberry, strawberry, and peanut butter and jelly- and I've even ordered fun little silver Mylar bags to pack them in. #Quote by Stacey Ballis
Versions quotes by Leon Golub
#86. People say: But photographs are all lies. That's not the point. The lie is a truth, too. How the hell are we going to know what Kissinger looks like? Well, the photograph tells us one version; I'm trying to tell it also, but differently. #Quote by Leon Golub
Versions quotes by Jewel E. Ann
#87. I hope every day you take each other's breath away. I hope every kiss feels like the first but ends like the last. I hope you always see the best versions of yourselves reflected in each other's eyes. But mostly, I hope you wake up every morning next to each other because there's no place in this world you'd rather be, instead of having nowhere else to go. May you always be each other's home. #Quote by Jewel E. Ann
Versions quotes by Said Sayrafiezadeh
#88. The benefit of writing a collection - as opposed to a novel - is that I'm able to have some version of the war in each story without having to comment on its all-encompassing nature. Turn the page and here are new characters and new situations, but the war remains ... Isn't that how life has been for us for over a decade? #Quote by Said Sayrafiezadeh
Versions quotes by Sloane Crosley
#89. Our brains are like bonsai trees, growing around our private versions of reality. #Quote by Sloane Crosley
Versions quotes by Matt Ross
#90. My background is in largely in theatre and acting. I grew up in a town with a well-respected Shakespeare Festival, and I fell in with some kids whose parents worked there. We staged all-kid versions of 'Hamlet', 'Cymbeline', a few others. All the while, I was making short films; monster movies, slapstick comedies, claymation. #Quote by Matt Ross
Versions quotes by David Byrne
#91. I'm just an advertisement for a version of myself. #Quote by David Byrne
Versions quotes by G. Pascal Zachary
#92. But Unix had a serious shortcoming: No common version existed. Over the years different versions of Unix had proliferated like weeds, so that an application written for one would not run unmodified on another. While DOS presented a single target to consumers, applications writers and computer makers, Unix did not. #Quote by G. Pascal Zachary
Versions quotes by Jennifer Worth
#93. Their devotion showed me there were no versions of love there was only ... Love. That it had no equal and that it was worth searching for, even if that search took a lifetime. #Quote by Jennifer Worth
Versions quotes by Kwasi Kwarteng
#94. If Martin Luther King were here he'd be very surprised at some of the sugar-coated versions of American history presented today. #Quote by Kwasi Kwarteng
Versions quotes by Luis Bunuel
#95. As inexplicable as the accidents that set it off, our imagination is a crucial privilege. I've tried my whole life simply to accept the images that present themselves to me without trying to analyze them. I remember when we were shooting That Obscure Object of Desire in Seville and I suddenly found myself telling Fernando Rey, at the end of a scene, to pick up a big sack filled with tools lying on a bench, sling it over his shoulder, and walk away. The action was completely irrational, yet it seemed absolutely right to me. Still, I was worried about it, so I shot two versions of the scene: one with the sack, one without. But during the rushes the following day, the whole crew agreed that the scene was much better with the sack. Why? I can't explain it, and I don't enjoy rummaging around in the cliches of psychoanalysis. #Quote by Luis Bunuel
Versions quotes by Stacey Ballis
#96. Starting with the chocolate version, I swap out some of the cocoa powder with melted bittersweet chocolate and add some sour cream for balance and moistness, as well as some instant espresso powder, my secret ingredient for anything chocolate, which doesn't so much make something taste like coffee, but rather just makes chocolate taste more chocolaty. While the chocolate cupcakes are baking, I turn my attention to the vanilla recipe, adding some vanilla bean paste to amp up the vanilla flavor and show off those awesome little black-speck vanilla seeds, and mixing some buttermilk into the batter to prevent it from being overly sweet and unbalanced. The banana version uses very ripe bananas that I've been stashing in the freezer, as well as a single slice of fresh banana that has been coated in caramel and is pushed halfway into each cup of batter for a surprise in the middle of the cupcakes.
Herman's frostings are close to the frostings of my youth, simple faux buttercreams made with softened butter and confectioners' sugar. Nothing fancy. In my newer versions, the chocolate gets melted chocolate and chocolate milk mixed in, the vanilla gets more vanilla bean paste and a tiny hit of lemon zest, and the peanut butter gets a blend of butter and cream cheese for some tang. #Quote by Stacey Ballis
Versions quotes by Johnny Depp
#97. It's funny what [producer Richard Zanuck said about even though you can't quite place when the book or the story came into your life, and I do vaguely remember roughly five years old reading versions of Alice in Wonderland, but the thing is the characters. You always know the characters. Everyone knows the characters and they're very well-defined characters, which I always thought was fascinating. Most people who haven't read the book definitely know the characters and reference them. #Quote by Johnny Depp
Versions quotes by Stephen Fry
#98. We always make the mistake, the fatal mistake in the case of military people, of imagining that each war will be a kind of version of the one that happened previously. #Quote by Stephen Fry
Versions quotes by Simon Beaufoy
#99. Real life is messy, and drama is a shaped version of real life. #Quote by Simon Beaufoy
Versions quotes by Sy Safransky
#100. For what are most of our stories but cartoon versions of the past? Our personal history is the well-worn version of ourselves we've settled for, in which we come across as pitiful stick figures, "bored to death with ourselves and with the world," as don Juan said. #Quote by Sy Safransky
Versions quotes by Robert Reed
#101. 2001: A Space Odyssey was a wonderful conundrum when I was a boy, with its giant concepts thrown across the giant screen at Indian Hills Theater. That movie woke me up in ways that I hadn't imagined, and I went searching for book versions of the same drug. #Quote by Robert Reed
Versions quotes by Thomas Daniel Nehrer
#102. Understand that religion, at least western versions of it, rests on a type of thinking called Revelation. This mode holds that truths concerning the workings of reality are hidden, masked by, through or behind a deity such that only a few privileged souls are able to see through the veil and "reveal" those truths. . . But (around 1600) revelation as a means of understanding began to be challenged by two other methods of differentiating truth from fallacy: Reason and Empiricism. #Quote by Thomas Daniel Nehrer
Versions quotes by Josh Gad
#103. Josh [Gad] is such an amazing improviser and is so good when the material is flowing from him that sometimes, if a written scene isn't working quite right, I'll tell him that we've got it and that he can just play. He'll blow us away with some super weird stuff and some wild things that we might use bits and pieces of in the edit, and then I'll say, "Just for good measure, let's do one more of the scripted version." #Quote by Josh Gad
Versions quotes by Jared Harris
#104. If you want to do your version, go off and write it. You bring your knowledge to it, and you can use that to shape it and color it, but it's someone else's version of that character. You're not actually playing the real person. #Quote by Jared Harris
Versions quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#105. Certainly I'm participating in an already established and awesome tradition, but it's a tradition that sort of shoots up and through the mainstream in short bursts and pulses and then gets diluted. Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson shot up and then got sucked back down underground under more entertaining and less radical versions of body and self - poetry and prose that posited bodies in more perfect union with good citizenship. #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Versions quotes by Emma Donoghue
#106. Actually,the nightmarish thought occurred to me that with electronic delivery of books becoming a norm, soon writers may be expected to provide several versions of their book, ranging from the Easy to the Complex, and buyers will choose what they're in the mood for with the click of a button! I do hope not; #Quote by Emma Donoghue
Versions quotes by Andre Aciman
#107. Most of us can't help but live as though we've got two lives to live, one is the mockup, the other the finished version, and then there are all those versions in between. #Quote by Andre Aciman
Versions quotes by Nick Earls
#108. One of the things that makes characters real is details. Life offers a lot of details. You just have to choose and use them wisely. When you give them to fictional people and a fictional story, their purpose and their meaning changes, so it's best to see the version in the book as fiction entirely, wherever it started out. #Quote by Nick Earls
Versions quotes by Karl Hess
#109. Laissez-faire capitalism, or anarchocapitalism, is simply the economic form of the libertarian ethic. Laissez-faire capitalism encompasses the notion that men should exchange goods and services, without regulation, solely on the basis of value for value. It recognizes charity and communal enterprises as voluntary versions of this same ethic. Such a system would be straight barter, except for the widely felt need for a division of labor in which men, voluntarily, accept value tokens such as cash and credit. Economically, this system is anarchy, and proudly so. #Quote by Karl Hess
Versions quotes by Nikita Gill
#110. And sometimes, you are going to be
as fierce as a dragon
armed in scales of impenetrable gold
and sometimes you are going to be
as vulnerable as a lamb,
soft and comforting in newborn wool.
Both versions of you deserve to be loved.
Both versions of you are needed.
Both versions of you are beautiful. #Quote by Nikita Gill
Versions quotes by Dean Kamen
#111. Clearly, there are many places where diesel is king or gas-turbine is king, or IC engines will win, but there are many places in the world where, as we've seen, they just won't do the job. The modern version of the Stirling engine has some very, very attractive characteristics, and we're trying to optimize it for some of those applications. #Quote by Dean Kamen
Versions quotes by Gavin Francis
#112. far darker and more disquieting than the versions we've come to know, so is the original Sleeping Beauty, in which the girl is raped while in her coma, then gives birth without waking up. In #Quote by Gavin Francis

#113. Bill Gates is a very rich man today ... and do you want to know why? The answer is one word: versions. #Quote by Dave Barry

Versions quotes by Erin Wasson
#115. My hair is wild and free, but I've always been told that [straight hair] is more polished, and a more polished version of yourself is a better version of yourself. That it's more professional. #Quote by Erin Wasson
Versions quotes by Gabrielle Anwar
#116. I want to be the best version of myself - intellectually, emotionally, and physically. So I like to wear clothes that I feel comfortable in, that reflect that. #Quote by Gabrielle Anwar
Versions quotes by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
#117. Ever hear the expression "write what you know?" My version says "write what you want to know." If you want to know about the history of Spain, write about the history of Spain - fiction or nonfiction. If your fascinated by the old west, maybe your character lives there. #Quote by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Versions quotes by James McBride
#118. He had gotten a new set of clothes someplace, but they were only worse new versions of the same thing he wore before: black trousers, black vest, frock coat, stiff collar, withered, crumpled, and chewed at the edges. His boots was worse than ever, crumpled like pieces of text paper, curled at the toes. In other words, he looked normal, like his clothes was dying of thirst, and he himself was about to keel over out of plain ugliness. #Quote by James McBride
Versions quotes by Robbie Amell
#119. It's nice to be playing a character who's never had a live-action version before. #Quote by Robbie Amell
Versions quotes by Emily Giffin
#120. Every couple has two stories - the edited one to be shared from the couch and the unabridged version best left alone. #Quote by Emily Giffin
Versions quotes by Matt Haig
#121. There is no standard normal. Normal is subjective. There are seven billion versions of normal on this planet. #Quote by Matt Haig
Versions quotes by Derek Sivers
#122. Go find very early versions of things: the first TV pilot of a later-successful TV show; early audition tapes by famous actors; early demos by famous musicians. Focus on these early examples, not what they became over the next 20 years. Remember that what you're doing will constantly improve. #Quote by Derek Sivers
Versions quotes by Jessica Alba
#123. Makeup can be pure fantasy
it can transform you into any kind of magical creature, whether that's a superhero or a retro Hollywood icon or just a more fun, fresher version of yourself. Looking like a stress-free, well-rested working mom? That's some kind of magic to me. #Quote by Jessica Alba
Versions quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#124. The harmonious man, it needs to be said, hardly exists at all; out of many tens, even hundreds of thousands perhaps one or two at most are encountered, and even then in rather feeble versions. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Versions quotes by Russell Banks
#125. He said, Yeah, well, artists are a lot like gangsters. They both know that the official version, the one everyone else believes, is a lie. #Quote by Russell Banks
Versions quotes by Kevin E. Phillips
#126. Extraordinary versions of people only exist when engagement is present. #Quote by Kevin E. Phillips
Versions quotes by Julian Barnes
#127. I remember, in no particular order:
- a shiny inner wrist;
- steam rising from a wet sink as a hot frying pan is laughingly tossed into it;
- gouts of sperm circling a plughole, before being sluiced down the full length of a tall house;
- a river rushing nonsensically upstream, its wave and wash lit by half a dozen chasing torchbeams;
- another river, broad and grey, the direction of its flow disguised by a stiff wind exciting the surface;
- bathwater long gone cold behind a locked door.
This last isn't something I actually saw, but what you end up remembering isn't always the same as what you have witnessed.

We live in time - it holds us and moulds us - but I've never felt I understood it very well. And I'm not referring to theories about how it bends and doubles back, or may exist elsewhere in parallel versions. No, I mean ordinary, everyday time, which clocks and watches assure us passes regularly: tick-tock, click-clock. Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only the smallest pleasure or pain to teach us time's malleability. Some emotions speed it up, others slow it down; occasionally, it seems to go missing - until the eventual point when it really does go missing, never to return.

I'm not very interested in my schooldays, and don't feel any nostalgia for them. But school is where it all began, so I need to return briefly to a few incidents that have grown into anecdotes, to so #Quote by Julian Barnes
Versions quotes by Toni Morrison
#128. She had been looking all along for a friend, and it took her a while to discover that a lover was not a comrade and could never be - for a woman. #Quote by Toni Morrison
Versions quotes by Colin O'Donoghue
#129. There are three versions of the hook. There's one that's solid metal and it's really heavy. It's sharp. It's not super sharp but it has a point, and because of the weight you could do some serious damage with it. And then there's an aluminium one which is a bit lighter, and then there's a rubber one for if you're to do stunts or there's any danger of cutting someone. Although sometimes I like to switch it out! It's the perfect coffee cup holder - it's literally the exact size. And if you've only got one hand and you're holding some food, it's great to put it on. #Quote by Colin O'Donoghue
Versions quotes by Jay Woodman
#130. We keep becoming better & better versions of ourselves without end, though there may be some glitches, we recover & go on. #Quote by Jay Woodman
Versions quotes by Alice Sebold
#131. At some point, to counter the list of the dead, I had begun keeping my own list of the living. It was something I noticed Len Fenerman did too. When he was off duty he would note the young girls and elderly women and every other female in the rainbow in between and count them among the things that sustained him. The young girl in the mall whose pale legs had grown too long for her now too-young dress and who had an aching vulnerability that went straight to both Len's and my own heart. Elderly women, wobbling with walkers, who insisted on dyeing their hair unnatural versions of the colors they had in youth. Middle-aged single mothers racing around in grocery stores while their children pulled bags of candy off the shelves. When I saw them, I took count. Living, breathing women. Sometimes I saw the wounded- those who had been beaten by husbands or raped by strangers, children raped by their fathers- and I would wish to intervene somehow.
Len saw these wounded women all the time. They were regulars at the station, but even when he went somewhere outside his jurisdiction he could sense them when they came near. The wife in that bait-'n'-tackle shop had no bruises on her face but cowered like a dog and spoke in apologetic whispers. The girl he saw walk the road each time he went upstate to visit his sisters. As the years passed she'd grown leaner, the fat from her cheeks had drained, and sorrow had loaded her eyes in a way that made them hang heavy and hopeless inside her m #Quote by Alice Sebold
Versions quotes by Johnny Weir
#132. I showed myself a lesser version of myself that night, and I'm glad I learned from it. #Quote by Johnny Weir
Versions quotes by Thomas Frank
#133. There is something uniquely depressing about the fact that the National Portrait Gallery's version of the Barack Obama 'Hope' poster previously belonged to a pair of lobbyists. Depressing because Mr. Obama's Washington was not supposed to be the lobbyists' Washington, the place we learned to despise during the last administration. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Versions quotes by Gunther Kress
#134. The (nation) state's concern had been the development of citizens - social subjects whose identity was shaped by the goals of the state - and the preparation of a labour force serving the needs of a national economy and administration. That state was interested in cohesion, integration and homogeneity - however imperfectly realized. The globally framed interests of current versions of the market are neither about citizenship - shared social values, aspirations, dispositions - nor about the preparation of a labour force ... #Quote by Gunther Kress
Versions quotes by Salman Rushdie
#135. History is natural selection. Mutant versions of the past struggle for dominance; new species of fact arise,and old, saurian truths go to the wall, blindfolded and smoking last cigarettes. Only the mutations of the strong survive. The weak, the anonymous, the defeated leave few marks: field-patterns, axe-heads, folk-tales, broken pitchers, burial mounds, the fading memory of their youthful beauty. History loves only those who dominate her: it is a relationship of mutual enslavement. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Versions quotes by Seth Shostak
#136. Imagine if the dinosaurs had tried picturing the rulers of their planet 100 million years hence. They'd undoubtedly envision these creatures as ... dinosaurs! Conceiving of aliens as polished versions of ourselves is appealing, but unconvincing. #Quote by Seth Shostak
Versions quotes by Hunter Hayes
#137. I truly believe that when you've found the one you're searching for, you become a better version of yourself. You're better for it. #Quote by Hunter Hayes
Versions quotes by Bret Stephens
#138. I think a Donald Trump presidency raises a new kind of version of conservatism which more closely resembles a kind of Father Coughlin, America first populism and nativism and isolationism, than the confident, modern, cosmopolitan, thoughtful, engaged conservatism of Ronald Reagan and Paul Ryan. #Quote by Bret Stephens
Versions quotes by Julie Hockley
#139. The truth. The truth has so many layers, so many versions. #Quote by Julie Hockley
Versions quotes by Chester Elijah Branch
#140. People don't really want original stories. they want different versions of the same story. this is called meta-narrative. #Quote by Chester Elijah Branch
Versions quotes by Lindsey Stirling
#141. If anorexia was really incurable, I'd still weigh ninety-two pounds--isolated in a world controlled by food and distorted versions of myself. I'm not that person anymore. I don't live in that world anymore. I hate the thought that someone, somewhere might read about their "incurable eating disorder" and believe it to be the truth. That's why I'm telling you, it's not.So hang in there, it's worth it. You're worth it. #Quote by Lindsey Stirling
Versions quotes by Matt Taibbi
#142. There are times when American politics seems like little more than two groups in a fever to prevent each other from trespassing upon their respective soothing versions of unreality #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Versions quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#143. If we are not given the option to live without violence, we are given the choice to center our meals around harvest or slaughter, husbandry or war. We have chosen slaughter. We have chosen war. That's the truest version of our story of eating animals.
Can we tell a new story? #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Versions quotes by Gabriel Byrne
#144. It's actually pretty complex, because there's two levels of reality in the narrative. One is what really took place, and the other is Spider's poisoned version of what took place. #Quote by Gabriel Byrne
Versions quotes by Timothy Keller
#145. If your god never disagrees with you, you might just be worshipping an idealized version of yourself. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Versions quotes by G. Willow Wilson
#146. Languages are different for a reason. You can't move ideas between them without losing something. The Arabs are the only ones who've figured this out. They have the sense to call non-Arabic versions of the Criterion interpretations, not translations. #Quote by G. Willow Wilson
Versions quotes by Galway Kinnell
#147. There are two versions to every poem – the crying version and the straight version #Quote by Galway Kinnell
Versions quotes by David Chalmers
#148. Although I'm Australian, I find myself much more in sympathy with the Austrian version! #Quote by David Chalmers
Versions quotes by Peter Bogdanovich
#149. I think one of the reasons younger people don't like older films, films made say before the '60s, is that they've never seen them on a big screen, ever. If you don't see a film on a big screen, you haven't really seen it. You've seen a version of it, but you haven't seen it. That's my feeling, but I'm old-fashioned. #Quote by Peter Bogdanovich
Versions quotes by Vincent Deary
#150. Some people handle life admirably. And other people really don't. Some get stuck in hideous deforming places and postures and become ever more unbearable versions of themselves. #Quote by Vincent Deary
Versions quotes by Ian McEwan
#151. I turned the pages so fast. And I suppose I was, in my mindless way, looking for a something, version of myself, a heroine I could slip inside as one might a pair of favourite shoes. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Versions quotes by Ted Alexandro
#152. Your stage persona is usually a version of yourself, to varying degrees. Some folks do a full-on character, so that's different. But most comics do some version of themselves. #Quote by Ted Alexandro
Versions quotes by Don Hertzfeldt
#153. Traditionally, digital projects, when you project them, they get really washed out. It's complicated stuff with gamma, but basically your blacks get very milky and the colors get very weak, and we made so many different versions of it to just pump more color into it, so it would look just as good in the theater as it does on your screen at home. And color was my constant whine. It needed to be very oversaturated. #Quote by Don Hertzfeldt
Versions quotes by Paul Rudd
#154. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of Everybody Loves Raymond, only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever. #Quote by Paul Rudd
Versions quotes by Zurmang Gharwang Rinpoche
#155. You cannot simply take a mala from someone else and start using it. When you buy a mala you have to make sure that it accords with the advice we have just discussed, and then before you use a mala - whether it is old or new - you should bless it. How do we bless the mala? There are different methods for blessing a mala, and some are more elaborate than others. In Buddhism there are two types of conduct: elaborate and simple. Elaborate conduct, for example, involves having many thangkas, statues, and lots of offerings, such as flowers and so forth. However, Buddhism is also very practical, and so there are more simple forms of practice where you utilize visualization. However, you should not use unelaborated versions of practice simply out of laziness. Making offerings are an important part of practice since these actions accumulate merit, and it is merit that brings about our happiness. People often refer to luck and fortune, but really #Quote by Zurmang Gharwang Rinpoche
Versions quotes by Matt Haig
#156. There are as many versions of a book as there are readers. #Quote by Matt Haig
Versions quotes by Gerry Canavan
#157. The Paraclete and "Book of Martha" narratives were ultimately versions of the dream of "fixing" of the human species that had driven (and stymied) the Parables books: "On the one hand," she writes in her journal, "I want to write fix-the-world scenario. I seem to need to write them. The fact that I don't believe in them--don't believe humanity is fixable--does create a problem #Quote by Gerry Canavan
Versions quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#158. As the hours crept by, the afternoon sunlight bleached all the books on the shelves to pale, gilded versions of themselves and warmed the paper and ink inside the covers so that the smell of unread words hung in the air. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Versions quotes by Cam Newton
#159. I wanted to give men an accessible line of clothing that's comfortable yet stylish and will help them to present the best version of themselves. It's easy - when you look good, you feel good. #Quote by Cam Newton
Versions quotes by Estelle
#160. If there is enough space on radio for Busted and McFly, who are basically the same band, or for 50,000 versions of Stereophonics and Coldplay, there must be enough room for all of us. #Quote by Estelle
Versions quotes by Amish Tripathi
#161. There are many realities. There are many versions of what may appear
obvious. Whatever appears as the unshakeable truth, its exact opposite
may also be true in another context. After all, one's reality is but
perception, viewed through various prisms of context. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Versions quotes by Vance Havner
#162. Beware of being a religious poseur, trying to live up to a dramatized version of yourself. #Quote by Vance Havner
Versions quotes by Nick Hornby
#163. In Victorian London they used to burn phosphorus at seances in an attempt to see ghosts, and I suspect that the pop-music equivalent is our obsession with B-sides and alternate versions and unreleased material. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Versions quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#164. When I make a film, I am hoping to reinvent the genre a little bit. I just do it my way. I make my own little Quentin versions of them ... I consider myself a student of cinema. It's almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema, and the day I die is the day I graduate. It is a lifelong study. #Quote by Quentin Tarantino
Versions quotes by Terry Pratchett
#165. God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players [i.e. everybody], to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Versions quotes by Marilyn Manson
#166. There's a lot of talk in some of the other versions of the Bible, the Hebrew versions, and things about the end of the world not being a punishment from God, but being an invitation from mankind. That mankind has to invite its own destruction. And I think that's very true, and it's almost very American. I think that's the type of society we're in and it's people's very fear of the Antichrist that has created it #Quote by Marilyn Manson
Versions quotes by Ree Drummond
#167. Most of the guests left the rehearsal dinner at the country club; the remaining group--a varied collection of important figures in both of our lives--had skittered away to the downtown hotel where all of the out-of-town guests were staying. Marlboro Man and I, not ready to bid each other good night yet, had joined them in the small, dimly lit (lucky for me, given the deteriorating condition of my epidermis) hotel bar. We gathered at a collection of tiny tables butted up together and wound up talking and laughing into the night, toasting one another and spouting various late-night versions of "I'm so glad I know you" and "I love you, man!" In the midst of all the wedding planning and craziness, hanging out in a basement bar with uncles, college friends, and siblings was a relaxing, calming elixir. I wanted to bottle the feeling and store it up forever.
It was late, though; I saw Marlboro Man looking at the clock in the bar.
"I think I'll head back to the ranch," he whispered as his brother told another joke to the group. Marlboro Man had a long drive ahead, not to mention an entire lifetime with me. I couldn't blame him for wanting a good night's sleep.
"I'm tired, too," I said, grabbing my purse from under the table. And I was; the long day had finally set in.
The two of us stood up and said our good-byes to all the people who loved us so much. Men stood up, some stumbling, and shook hands with Marlboro Man. Women blew kisses and mouthed Love you guys! to #Quote by Ree Drummond
Versions quotes by Todd Rundgren
#168. My guitar heroes are Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck and people like that - so I've tried to make an album of Robert Johnson covers that, well, while not totally faithful for blues purists, is faithful for people like me that grew up with the '60s and the electric blues-rock versions of Johnson's songs. #Quote by Todd Rundgren
Versions quotes by Jenny Slate
#169. When I'm on stage, and when I'm comfortable or uncomfortable, I have sort of a knee-jerk reaction to try to make people laugh. It's my version of a handshake to show that I want to make a connection and to show what I'm truly like. It's kind of my statement like, "This is what I'm really like. I'd like you to love me." #Quote by Jenny Slate
Versions quotes by Nikki Haley
#170. I did read Indian scriptures when we could get the English versions, but the problem was I never took the time to learn the language. Really, what it comes down to is that I knew the emotion of faith; I knew what my parents were trying to teach me, but we always said 'No' when my mom was trying to teach us Punjabi. #Quote by Nikki Haley
Versions quotes by Nancy Levin
#171. When we change and grow into new versions of ourselves, we have to tolerate a lot of uncertainty. #Quote by Nancy Levin
Versions quotes by Robert G. Picard
#172. I believe that online paid content hasn't worked for general circulation newspapers because consumers weren't ready for it, because the implementation did not deliver enough value, because content was typically the same as in the print version, and because much of the material was being syndicted by the papers to other publishers or was not protected with DRM technologies to exclude use by others. #Quote by Robert G. Picard
Versions quotes by Will Smith
#173. The central idea of love is not even a relationship commitment, the first thing is a personal commitment to be the best version of yourself with or without that person that you're with. You have to every single day-mind, body, and spirit-wake up with a commitment to be better. #Quote by Will Smith
Versions quotes by Michael Ian Black
#174. I used to need the character but as I've gotten older I need it less and less - I prefer to play some version of myself. To approach any acting job as me just being me. #Quote by Michael Ian Black
Versions quotes by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
#175. Loan me a canvas and I will let down my guard. Loan me a paintbrush and I will reach into my soul. Loan me jars full of colors and I will submerge in a sea of possibilities. Loan me the time and you will see infinite versions of my being re-born. #Quote by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
Versions quotes by Colleen Hoover
#176. I'd rather trust the versions of ourselves we don't remember than trust people who don't know us at all. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Versions quotes by Rachael Ray
#177. I make a dog-friendly version of almost everything that we make for dinner. #Quote by Rachael Ray
Versions quotes by Ben Whishaw
#178. I don't think that actors are necessarily any more uncomfortable in their skin than anyone else. I suppose I feel more comfortable in my skin now, but you're always playing a character, aren't you? You tell different versions of yourself to different people and vice versa. Here, or in the photo shoot or wherever, it's a representation of you. It's not you-you. That's how you get through it. #Quote by Ben Whishaw
Versions quotes by Kim Brooks
#179. When it comes to our current fears regarding unsupervised children, we see both versions of folk wisdom at work. In the sixties or seventies, a child could walk to school or wait in a car because people were better, the world less violent, we say. But also, parents were dumber. They simply didn't know. Sure, parents used to leave kids on their own, but they also let them drink Kool-Aid by the vat and play with toy weapons the NRA might find a touch aggro. They let them build forts in the trunks of station wagons careening down the freeway or swim without sunscreen until their skin blistered. Parents let kids wait in cars because they were idiots. But also, on average, because it was safer, because people were better then, gentler, less monstrous. It sounds so nice and pleasant, this safer, simpler past. It sounds almost too good to be true. #Quote by Kim Brooks

#180. The park admits the wind,
the petals lift and scatter

like versions of myself I was on the verge
of becoming; and ten years on

and ten blocks down I still can't tell
whether this dispersal resembles

a fist unclenching or waving goodbye. #Quote by Rachel Wetzsteon
Versions quotes by Courtney Milan
#181. How many lovers?" He could have given her a straight answer. Dozens. Or, more specifically: Thirty-seven. Thirty-seven, if you counted mutual versions of the conduct he'd just engaged in, and Sebastian did.But what he finally said was, "Too many. And not enough." Her face was in shadow. He couldn't tell if she was disgusted by him, or if this was just a matter of idle curiosity for her.
She exhaled. "How many would be enough?"
He smiled sadly. "One more, Violet." He looked over at her - at her arms folded around herself, at her head, turned from his, as if that would be enough to distract him from the ferocity of his want. "I've only ever wanted one more. #Quote by Courtney Milan

#182. I don't know if I was as ambitious as to change the world, but I do feel like - the reason why I called the album "Our Version of Events" was that I feel a lot of people are not represented in pop music and popular culture. #Quote by Emeli Sande
Versions quotes by Andrew Bacevich
#183. I began to appreciate that authentic truth is never simple and that any version of truth handed down from on high - whether by presidents, prime ministers, or archbishops - is inherently suspect. The powerful, I came to see, reveal truth only to the extent that it suits them. #Quote by Andrew Bacevich

#184. I say we keep building new versions of ourselves, keep exploring the unknown, and keep growing. We're gonna be fine. Different, but fine. Because most people are good. Right? #Quote by Daniel H. Wilson
Versions quotes by Wayne Coyne
#185. Most artists I run into aren't that thrilled with what they do anyway. They are glad to have different versions out there to see which one the audience likes the best. #Quote by Wayne Coyne
Versions quotes by Greg Egan
#186. You know what they say the modern version of Pascal's Wager is? Sucking up to as many Transhumanists as possible, just in case one of them turns into God. #Quote by Greg Egan
Versions quotes by William J. Clinton
#187. President Obama's approach embodies the values, the ideas, and the direction America must take to build a 21st century version of the American Dream in a nation of shared opportunities, shared prosperity and shared responsibilities. #Quote by William J. Clinton

#188. The Treorchy Male Choir's version of "Myfanwy" is one of the most glorious things I've ever heard in all my long life. Love and congratulations to you all. #Quote by Joanna Lumley
Versions quotes by Shauna Niequist
#189. Christians have made too much out of work in the same way that Americans have begun engaging in yoga competitions - twisted-up versions of a purer thing. Christians want to make a difference. So we do, and we do, and we do, and then we find ourselves exhausted. In #Quote by Shauna Niequist

#190. The world doesn't fully make sense until the writer has secured his version of it on the page. And the act of writing is strangely more lifelike than life. #Quote by Betsy Lerner
Versions quotes by Rafael Yglesias
#191. New York is a much more bourgeois city, more of a tourist attraction than a muscular metropolis. It's lost moxie and a rough energy, while gaining grace and friendliness. I love both versions of the city, but I wish the prosperous Manhattan would become a little easier for young people to afford. #Quote by Rafael Yglesias
Versions quotes by Cate Blanchett
#192. We talked about trying to create an image that would somehow, to an audience, create the sense of awe, wonder and shock that the troops must have felt that their monarch - and a female monarch - went to the frontline of battle and was prepared to lay down her life. This speech is so well known and has been done in virtually every version of the events of Elizabeth's life. #Quote by Cate Blanchett

#194. The detective and his criminal wear versions of the same mask. #Quote by Jane Roberts
Versions quotes by Zac Efron
#195. Every actor has three versions of each scene - the one that you rehearse the night before, in your bedroom, the one you actually get to do when you're filming, and then the one you wish you would have done, afterward. #Quote by Zac Efron
Versions quotes by Ed Catmull
#196. The trust comes from knowing that we are safe, that our colleagues will not judge us for failures but will encourage us to keep pushing the boundaries. But to me, the key is not to let this trust, our faith, lull us into the abdication of personal responsibility. When that happens, we fall into dull repetition, producing empty versions of what was made before. #Quote by Ed Catmull
Versions quotes by Michael T. Nygard
#197. What About Object Pooling? In early versions of Java (around the 1.2 time frame), the idea that long-lived objects were good gained currency. I specifically remember being told that "creating an object is the second most expensive thing you can do in Java" (the first being creation of a new thread). The answer, supposedly, was to avoid creating objects whenever possible. Instead, you were supposed to keep objects around and reuse them. #Quote by Michael T. Nygard

#198. In Norway, we have a community of people who prefer to use a version of Norwegian that looks very much like lutefisk: Dug up remains from the garbage heap of history and dressed up to look like a tradition. #Quote by Erik Naggum

#199. Then she turns to me. 'Tell me. How are you really?' she says, as if there were two versions of my life, and now she is not on the verge of tears at all, but sharp-voiced as an interrogator. #Quote by Per Petterson

#200. Never follow a dog act. You know you're on the skids when you play yourself in the movie version of your life. #Quote by Erica Jong
