I don't have to compete in the charts. I can just be myself as a musician, a songwriter and play with the musicians that I really love.
The triple is the most exciting play in baseball. Home runs win a lot of games, but I never understood why fans are so obsessed with them.
I don't like uncertainty. I don't play poker. I don't like bluffing.
Burmese authors and artists can play the role that artists everywhere play. They help to mold the outlook of a society - not the whole outlook, and they are not the only ones to mold the outlook of society, but they have an important role to play there.
Aung San Suu Kyi
In an ecology of love, people can relate in trust and face the future without fear. They do not need to play it safe. They can take uncertainty in their stride.

I've had the luxury of playing golf around the world, and I've spent a lot of time evaluating how to play all kinds of courses.
Any parent who tells their kids that they can't attend a school play or go to a soccer match because they have to work is kidding themselves. It's OK to miss a game or two or a performance here and there, but it's not all right to miss the majority of them.
In an age of incompetence, I've been able to last in this crazy business. I actually know how to play my ax and write a song. That's my job.
Before coming here I had a minor back problem and I thought whenever I play Pakistan I get a back problem.
I thought theater people wouldn't see me if I hadn't trained. I didn't want to just be the Brideshead guy, to spend the rest of my life wearing waistcoats. I got the chance to try everything. Not just Romeos, but pimps and grandfathers and even one role as a woman in a Naomi Wallace play called Slaughter City.
If you are a nurturing mother, and a good one, you can go to play groups, sit on the floor and play all the games, and have tea with the other mothers, but wouldn't you like to think that's not all there is? That you haven't hung up your high heels without knowing how to walk in them?
When I played drunks I had to remain sober because I didn't know how to play them when I was drunk.
I'm an intuitive musician. I have no real technical skills. I can only play six chords on the guitar.
I've always wanted to be a DJ so I could play the music I love for other people. That feeling hasn't changed, but my sets are always evolving.

The play is not in the words, it's in you!
It's that kind of in-born music thing - I could pick up the guitar and play something. It's not something I consciously do.

When I'm not working, I like to play golf.

My mother says I was two-and-a-half when I started playing. My father was a minister, and when he went to church in the morning, she would put on Fats Waller, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole and Cole Porter records. I'd crawl up on the piano stool, sit on a phone book and play.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
