Each of us is meant to have a character all our own, to be what no other can exactly be, and do what no other can exactly do.
William Ellery Channing
There's a certain amount of freedom involved in cycling: you're self-propelled and decide exactly where to go. If you see something that catches your eye to the left, you can veer off there, which isn't so easy in a car, and you can't cover as much ground walking.
With your own children, you love them immediately - and with grandchildren, it's exactly the same.
What Darwinian theory shows us is that all human races are extremely close to each other. None of them is in any sense ancestral to any other; none of them is more primitive than any other. We are all modern races of exactly equal status, evolutionarily speaking.
I don't exactly know what I mean by that, but I mean it.
J. D. Salinger
I have a gruff side. This is not exactly news... At the same time, anyone who wants to judge me for this can walk a mile in my moccasins. And then we'll talk.
Nobody can be exactly like me. Even I have trouble doing it.
The World War I, I'm a child of World War I. And I really know about the children of war. Because both my parents were both badly damaged by the war. My father, physically, and both mentally and emotionally. So, I know exactly what it's like to be brought up in an atmosphere of a continual harping on the war.
The Metropolitan Opera, of course, is the gold standard in opera. The Met experience includes the huge stage, the vast audience, the elaborate sets. Anyone who saw 'Faust' there - I did - knows exactly what hell is like, complete with fire, smoke and terror.
We are exactly where we have chosen to be.
I may be the only mother in America who knows exactly what their child is up to all the time.
In psychoanalysis, only the fee is exactly what it seems to be.
I take some pride in... representing myself exactly how I would like to have my son remember me to his kids.
Robert Downey, Jr.
As a writer, one of the things we all learned from the movies was a kind of compression that didn't exist before people were used to watching films. For instance, if you wanted to write a flashback in a novel, you once had to really contextualize it a lot, to set it up. Now, readers know exactly what you're doing. Close-ups, too.
When you've been on a programme called 'An Idiot Abroad' job offers aren't exactly flying in.
The 'Net is a waste of time, and that's exactly what's right about it.
A worker may be the hammer's master, but the hammer still prevails. A tool knows exactly how it is meant to be handled, while the user of the tool can only have an approximate idea.
What is exciting is taking back the excitement of being able to debut something to an audience in exactly the way you want to.
We like things to manifest right away, and they may not. Many times, we're just planting a seed and we don't know exactly how it is going to come to fruition. It's hard for us to realize that what we see in front of us might not be the end of the story.
Maybe people have no idea how much work is behind a picture. It can seem very effortless, but there is a lot of work. It's exactly like doing ballet. It's hours and hours, but when you go onstage, it's just the pleasure of dancing.
I'll see Naomi Wolf on television periodically, I have nothing against her and what she says, but I'll feel that she's a politician, like she's got an agenda to get across and that she doesn't always say what's really true or exactly what she feels.
I can spot empty flattery and know exactly where I stand. In the end it's really only my own approval or disapproval that means anything.
Living with a single kidney is almost exactly like living with two; the remaining kidney expands to take up the slack. (When kidneys fail, they generally fail together; barring trauma or cancer, there's not much advantage to a backup.) The main risk to the donor is the risk of any surgery.
I'm not exactly sure how many kids I have, but yes, I do miss them officially, for the record. In case any of them are listening, I love you.
Doing it your own way, not having to go exactly by the book to be successful.
It is no use trying to sum people up. One must follow hints, not exactly what is said, nor yet entirely what is done.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Martin Luther King, Jr.

God is the tangential point between zero and infinity.
