I was dirt-poor. I could barely hold down a job. Eventually, though, I started getting small parts on shows like 'Smallville,' 'Supernatural'... and lots of really bad sci-fi movies. I was running around the woods in wolf contacts, covered in fake blood made out of pancake syrup, roaring.
How is it they live in such harmony the billions of stars - when most men can barely go a minute without declaring war in their minds about someone they know.

I barely got out of high school, and I look back at my life often and go, 'Wow, this was awesome!'
Jamie Lee Curtis
Thirteen thousand dollars a year is not enough to raise a family. That's not enough to pay your bills and save for their future. That's barely enough to provide for even the most basic needs.
God doesn't do things halfway. He goes all out! When God does something, it's not just barely enough, mediocre or lukewarm.
After I hurt the knee, football wasn't nearly as much fun. I was limited. But you make do with what you have. I adjusted some.

I could barely run, other than to drop back to pass.
We were born to die and we die to live. As seedlings of God, we barely blossom on earth; we fully flower in heaven.
Russell M. Nelson
As an entrepreneur, one of the biggest challenges you will face will be building your brand. The ultimate goal is to set your company and your brand apart from the crowd. If you form a strategy without doing the research, your brand will barely float - and at the speed industries move at today, brands sink fast.

Webs are made mostly of spaces. They break easily. They barely exist. They belong to the category of half-things: mist, smoke, shrouds, ghosts, membranes, retinas or rags; and they quickly fill up with un-things: old legs and wings and heads and hollow abdomens and body bags of wasps.
The horse stares at its captor, barely remembering the free kicks of youth.
