To pine for the days before public education became a practical reality is to pine for an America held back by mass ignorance and mass illiteracy.
All I ask is to be held above the barren wastes of want.
I was always the type of person that whenever I started something I finished it. And, I was always held accountable for my actions.
Small businesses provide 75 percent of new U.S. jobs and are the backbone of our economy, and no outdated ban should be keeping small business owners from collecting the same interest their money could earn if it were held by an individual.
I've always been scared of advertising folk. I've met them at parties and I've been to their offices and I've always found them intimidatingly cool. At one company I visited, they held their meetings in a caravan that had somehow been installed in the place, a rather more exotic place to gather than the typical BBC glass box.
I feel empathy for people who are trapped in a prison of self-consciousness in an uncomfortable way. We can be free, but we're so held back. So perhaps that's why I feel a duty to make my work. I feel liberated when I'm doing it, and I want other people to feel liberated through it.
Bat for Lashes
In all feats of fire-eating it should be noted that the head is thrown well back, so that the flame may pass out of the open mouth instead of up into the roof, as it would if the head were held naturally.
If I'm hip, we've got a problem in this country. I really shouldn't be held up as any model of hipness. If anything, I think I'm sort of old school in my approach to objective reporting and not wearing my opinion on my sleeve. There's a lot of that in American TV news these days. Too much, in fact.
Why should citizenship be a matter of birth? The premise held by those who want to end birthright citizenship is that some people deserve it and some do not - that the status shouldn't be handed out automatically. Frankly, that's a premise worth considering.
These are men and women who are willing to risk their lives in defense of their country. And the fact that their orientation - sexual orientation's been held against them is a blot on our nation's reputation.
Some critics of my work took the view that a satirist should defer to the finer feelings of his readers and respect widely held beliefs.
I really didn't feel challenged anymore. I wanted to learn something and be excited again... While it can be a family - that environment is actually a family - in the sense that also you sometimes hate each other, you can't stand being around each other and grudges are held... I was getting cranky on 'Criminal Minds.'
All I held against Jews was that so many Jews actually were hypocrites in their claim to be friends of the American black man.
Official dignity tends to increase in inverse ratio to the importance of the country in which the office is held.
I never like being touched, ever. People used to say I held my breath when they were hugging me. I still do.
I have always held firmly to the thought that each one of us can do a little to bring some portion of misery to an end.

How many things we held yesterday as articles of faith which today we tell as fables.
