I used to have a sort of soft spot for Huckabee. He seemed to have a genuinely saintly streak, which caused him to defend illegal immigrants and give pardons to criminals who were perhaps a little less rehabilitated than he had imagined.
I have sometimes imagined my own death and brought myself to tears.
I was a workaholic. I never stopped. I lived in fifth gear. I bought cars. I invested in stocks. I made more money than I had ever imagined.
I have never, ever, not once, met a writer who said he or she would never read a mystery or a story set in some imagined future.
I never imagined it wouldn't work out for me. I had that absolute certainty in myself that has seen me through, I think, and my parents were absolutely behind me all the way.
When I started painting 17 years ago, I never imagined that anyone would look at my work or buy my pieces. But now I do about 14 exhibitions each year.
I never imagined playing in El Clasico. I used to watch the games and look at photos, and I used to say how incredible to play in it was.
My parents grew up during the space race, and I think they imagined the future would be us living on moon bases and everyone has rocket shoes.
Brian K. Vaughan
A movie is so visually powerful, so overwhelming, that it tends to crowd out how you might have imagined things.
As a writer, Chris Columbus was a big influence. 'The Goonies' was the first movie I ever saw that kids speak normally and not imagined how kids would talk. Always a big fan of Chris Columbus' dialogue and storytelling.
When I moved to America, I knew I wanted to be a designer. I never imagined one of my dresses would end up in the Smithsonian.
For much of the twentieth century, 1984 was a year that belonged to the future - a strange, gray future at that. Then it slid painlessly into the past, like any other year. Big Brother arrived and settled in, though not at all in the way George Orwell had imagined.
I hate family pressures and family responsibilities. I'm more comfortable as a stranger. I always imagined I could just live in a hotel. I'm afraid of family.
I read little nonfiction, but I have no boundaries about the fiction I relish. The only unfailing criterion is that I can hitch my heart to the imagined world and read on.
I did go there later, but I hadn't been there before I wrote the book. Sometimes I feel like the imagined can feel more real than the real?
I always imagined my little cartoons on plates for some reason.
Changing my body has given me the ability to do all these amazing things that I never in a million years imagined I could do.
I was interested in theatre and media and came to Mumbai to get a job. I imagined that the film industry would be a white building with producers sitting in different rooms, and you could walk in and meet them, and they would interview you and select you.
Armaments are necessary - or are maintained on the pretext of necessity - because of a real or an imagined danger of war.
My business has doubled in ways I couldn't have imagined.
It's not that acting was something I'd always wanted to do. I had no formal training; I'd never really imagined I'd be an actress. Business was something that had always been in my mind, but when I got into acting, I learned everything on set, and for me at that point, I wanted to excel at what I did.
When the Taliban captured Kabul in 1996 after a searing, four-year civil war, they immediately instituted laws which fit their utopic vision of the time of Islam's founding more than 1,300 years earlier. Afghan women's lives offered the most visible sign of the imagined past to which Afghanistan's present was to be returned.
Gayle Tzemach Lemmon
I started my career as a novelist. 'Veronica Mars' was first imagined as a novel.
I wanted to be a rock 'n' roll star. It defines life for me. It's all I've ever imagined for myself.
When you've written a film and directed it and it comes out exactly as you imagined it, it's pretty boring.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
