All of the very important events in my life happen by chance.
The Mexican debt crisis, Latin American debt crisis, the crises of the 1990s, the Wall Street stock market crash, and other events should have reminded us, and did remind us, that financial instability remains a concern, remains a problem.
The role of liquidity in systemic events provides yet another reason why, in the future, a more system wide or macroprudential approach to regulation is needed.
I have been blessed to see visions of eternity; and events in my future that have been important for me to foresee, have been revealed to me.
It's difficult to be at events with a room full of women who weigh half as much as you do.
I went to SXSW in 2011. God, that was awful. I mean, I only went because my publisher wanted me to promote the book and the organizers invited me and it seemed silly not to go, especially for a relatively unknown first-time author. This is just not my cup of tea; the fewer such events I do on an annual basis, the happier I feel.
I turn down invitations to events where I know there will be politicians.
I might want to open a hotel and design all the rooms. Or maybe a museum that lets me curate all the events.
I think my recognizability ebbs and flows. I don't lead a particularly celebrity lifestyle or anything like that. I don't go to showbiz parties or red-carpet events, so it all depends on whether I've got a film out. I've not been very visible in the last year or so and as a result hardly anyone stops me in the street.
I did not in late November start the plethora of linking my private life with public events again.
Ever since the Greek tragedies, artists have, from time to time, asked themselves how they might influence ongoing political events.
Consult duty not events.
Walter Savage Landor
I've actually done events at radio stations where I feel like I've had to give a little talk in behalf of television as a medium.
The future continues to preoccupy me as a reliable source of hopes, fears and anxieties, but increasingly the present seems to have no outstanding qualities of its own, being merely a way-station through which events travel to the vast shadow lands of the past.
I love looking through magazines, and you know, I love getting dressed up to go to events and stuff.
While writing 'City Boy,' I relied mainly on my own memories. In particular, I was able to describe the effect of gay liberation on an individual life (mine) as events paralleled my own growing self-acceptance; in this case, the political truly was the personal.
Fiction is about intimacy with characters, events, places.
I haven't been to many music events where somebody was performing and it actually made me cry.
I don't start with the characters. I start with the series of events that will provide the conflict and how it can be resolved. Characters are incidental.
I think it's good that we're sometimes reminded of important events in history.
Max von Sydow
Maybe a day will come when we may have to just put on a pair of glasses and see sports events.
If I haven't made myself clear, this worrisome chain of events describes the game of the nineteenth century.
The simultaneous reactions elicited all over the world by the reading of newspaper dispatches about the same events create, as it were, a common mental pulse beat for the whole of civilized mankind.
Christian Lous Lange
In every generation, there are horrors that define an age and events that scar the global conscience.
Turn where we may, within, around, the voice of great events is proclaiming to us, Reform, that you may preserve!
Thomas Babington Macaulay
Martin Luther King, Jr.
