I think everybody identified at a pretty young age that I was fairly entranced with myself. And that I had to be tempered.
Well, I think I've had a fairly meandering career.
My grandfather, on my father's side, helped to draft one of the first constitutions of China. He was a fairly well-known scholar.
I'm fairly specific about what I like to wear and looks are important to me, just like they are to everybody.
Frankly I'm fairly boring or fairly busy. Between writing and family, I have little time for anything else.
I think you can fairly say I spawned or laid an egg that has turned into a lifestyle industry.
No one knew I was gay growing up but I was bullied. I was a cheerleader, fairly popular and considered straight.
Press TV is one of the few TV channels anywhere in the West that fairly presents the Palestinian case.
I got a film fairly quickly and felt like I was on a roll. I would walk into auditions sounding like Crocodile Dundee, thinking, 'This is going to be a novelty for them.' Then I realised that there are a million other Australians here, and I should just shut up.
Because I've always been a fairly nervous person.
I'm fairly out of the loop when it comes to pop culture.
I'm not ambitious about my career, but I am ambitious with each job. I can be fairly annoying to work with.
I've had my share of villains and played some fairly nasty characters. But I've been acting for so long. I started out as the girl next door. Now I'm the grandmother next door.
People realized that they could come on Fox News Sunday, and they would be well and fairly treated.
I think I'm fairly good with money, but I've developed some strange tics - in shops I don't like to go to the counter unless I've got at least two things to buy. If I'm walking around with just one thing in my hand I'll put it back and wait a few weeks because that doesn't seem like a proper purchase.
We need to use all the resources at our disposal in order to prosper. We need more employment, and we need employment to be spread more fairly across society.
I have a philosophy that has guided me throughout all of my scientific career, and that is, I think of myself as a fairly thoughtful person. I don't go into projects impetuously, and I try to select important problems.
Just because you read a report in the 'New York Times,' the 'Economist,' or, yes, 'The New Yorker' doesn't make it true. But we do know that a few people have evaluated that story with what strikes me as fairly objective standards of reason.

We humans are a fairly barbarous bunch.
I've got a fairly low profile - I go and do me shopping when I need to!
The Iraq I returned from was, in my mind, a fairly simple place. By which I mean it had little relationship to reality. It's only with time and the help of smart, empathetic friends willing to pull through many serious conversations that I've been able to learn more about what I witnessed.
I like a hem below my knee even though I was blessed with fairly good gams.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
