I've never understood the cult of Hitchcock. Particularly the late American movies... Egotism and laziness. And they're all lit like television shows.
There are major efforts being made to dismantle Social Security, the public schools, the post office - anything that benefits the population has to be dismantled. Efforts against the U.S. Postal Service are particularly surreal.
Niger is not an isolated island of desperation. It lies within a sea of problems across Africa - particularly the 'forgotten emergencies' in poor countries or regions with little strategic or material appeal.
The crimes against Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and elsewhere, particularly Lebanon, are so shocking that the only emotionally valid reaction is rage and a call for extreme actions. But that does not help the victims. And, in fact, it's likely to harm them.
Read over your compositions, and when you meet a passage which you think is particularly fine, strike it out.
I am not a particularly thick-skinned person.
J. K. Rowling
A lot of what I'm obsessed with is the relationship and the dynamics between people and the family, particularly brothers and their father.
For me, the reputation for teaching language in general, and East European languages most particularly, gave Glasgow University, and by reflection the country, a distinction.
If the director says you can do better, particularly in a love scene, then it is rather embarrassing.
My father had this mythological sense of the old New York, and he used to tell me stories about these old gangs, particularly the Forty Thieves in the Fourth Ward.
I'm not particularly a feminist, but if you get women off the animal cycle of reproduction and give them some say in how many children they'll have, immediately the floor will rise.
I often lay on that bench looking up into the tree, past the trunk and up into the branches. It was particularly fine at night with the stars above the tree.
Particularly conservative Christians, I was very angry that they were not involved more in the AIDS emergency.
Perhaps I'm particularly serious, because I'm not unaware of the potential absurdity of what I'm doing.
I've never found kicks to the groin particularly funny, although recent work in the genre of the buddy movie suggests audience research must prove me wrong.
People get very trapped where they are. When they hear 'fashion' they get intimidated, particularly at the upper end because it's so elitist.
I've done five films directed by women. I did like it. They had qualities, particularly in the romantic tenderness of scenes. I felt sometimes they were a little bit soft, but maybe they were clever to get the guys working the way they wanted them to.
When I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.
Steven Patrick Morrissey
I don't like war. I particularly don't like the celebration of war, which I think the administration is a little bit guilty of.
I particularly like Twitter, because it's short and can be very funny and informative. It's a little bit like having your own radio program.
You can't be a great mum and work the whole time necessarily; those two things aren't ideal. We have an awful lot to work on and to debate about in relation to our working lives, because it isn't working for a lot of people, particularly for a lot of women.
They have not always elected the best leaders, particularly after a long period in which they have not used this facility of free election. You tend to lose the habit.
I happen to love coconut, particularly for that sweet and crunchy texture it adds to any dish.
What made women's labour particularly attractive to the capitalists was not only its lower price but also the greater submissiveness of women.
If I have another child, I doubt I'll get married again. I don't think men particularly want to be with me.
Anna Nicole Smith
My dedication to my music has driven everyone away. I've had girlfriends, but I always end up on my own. I don't particularly like it, but I don't see a way 'round it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
