I found the offer of a knighthood something that I couldn't possibly accept. I found it to be somehow squalid, a knighthood. There's a relationship to government about knights.
I think possibly what people working for one hate the most is indecision. Even if I'm completely unsure, I'll pretend I know exactly what I'm talking about and make a decision. The most important thing I can do is try and make myself very clearly understood.
Being yourself is one of the greatest things you can possibly do. Being true to yourself.
We've only explored about 5% of our ocean. There are great discoveries yet to be made down there - fantastic creatures representing millions of years of evolution and possibly bioactive compounds that could benefit us in ways we can't even imagine.
One layer was certainly 17th century. The 18th century in him is obvious. There was the 19th century, and a large slice, of course, of the 20th century; and another, curious layer which may possibly have been the 21st.
In this possibly terminal phase of human existence, democracy and freedom are more than just ideals to be valued - they may be essential to survival.
You want to learn everything that you possibly can, chew it, digest it, and take it for what it is, and then move on.
There is more felicity on the far side of baldness than young men can possibly imagine.
Logan Pearsall Smith
I know that to be a good player, you have to stay healthy, and you have to be as athletic as you can possibly be.
As a filmmaker, you have to understand the essence of the book and tell the story you want to see on the screen, and hopefully please yourself - because you can't possibly please everyone.
To be a great artist, you need to know yourself as best as you possibly can. I live my life and delve into my own psyche. It's more about exploring how I feel rather than making pale imitations of something that came before. We are unique beings, and the way we look at things is our own.
Bat for Lashes
Despite fearful rhetoric to the contrary, terrorism is not a transcendent threat. A terrorist attack cannot possibly destroy our country's way of life; it's only our reaction to that attack that can do that kind of damage.
The person who is brutally honest enjoys the brutality quite as much as the honesty. Possibly more.
Richard J. Needham
I think, 'How could anybody mock a good pop song?' It is timeless; it transcends barriers; it breaks down every single type of social barrier that you can possibly have. It can deal with the most difficult subjects, even if it abstracts the subject matter.
Identify your niche and dominate it. And when I say dominate, I just mean work harder than anyone else could possibly work at it.
Why is Caterpillar bad if we create a new job in India or China to receive U.S. exports? It makes no sense to me. We want to drive all the exports we can from the United States. We want to concentrate on all those consumers, outside contractors, customers outside the United States that we possibly can.
Douglas R. Oberhelman
I have friends who are very pessimistic. They say you can't possibly be an optimist nowadays. But I think, taking the longer view, you can still be as optimistic as you want.
Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.
No one can possibly know what is about to happen: it is happening, each time, for the first time, for the only time.
James A. Baldwin
We cannot possibly let ourselves get frozen into regarding everyone we do not know as an absolute stranger.
We conceal it from ourselves in vain - we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man cannot possibly live for a moment without it.
You label somebody 'New Age,' and that's automatic mockery: 'She cannot possibly be a serious thinker.'
Original thought is like original sin: both happened before you were born to people you could not have possibly met.
Basically, I believe the world is a jungle, and if it's not a bit of a jungle in the home, a child cannot possibly be fit to enter the outside world.
Even if 'going retrograde' or 'moving into Aquarius' were real phenomena, something that planets actually do, what influence could they possibly have on human events? A planet is so far away that its gravitational pull on a new-born baby would be swamped by the gravitational pull of the doctor's paunch.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
