I don't like American football. I think it's boring and ridiculous and predictable. But baseball is very beautiful. It's played on a diamond.
I think we live in an era without a predictable career path. Everybody's doing more, doing more at the same time, doing more faster. As such, individual projects can have wildly different developmental trajectories.
Changes are not only possible and predictable, but to deny them is to be an accomplice to one's own unnecessary vegetation.
Family caregiving has become a predictable crisis. Americans are living longer and longer but dying slower and slower.
Beauty is boring because it is predictable.
Cookbooks have all become baroque and very predictable. I'm looking for something different. A lot of chefs' cookbooks are food as it's done in the restaurants, but they are dumbed down, and I hate it when they dumb them down.
I like shows that have some level of intelligence to them. When it's not as predictable, when you don't know what's coming at you.
The biggest threat to a better life is the desire to keep the future under control - to make the world predictable by reining in creativity and enterprise. Progress as a neat blueprint, with no deviations and no surprise, may work in children's cartoons or utopian novels. But it's just a fantasy.
'The Real World' is the most predictable arc ever. They get on the show, they're all excited, we're gonna be best friends, then people start drinking and get hammered, and say stupid stuff, and that's pretty much it.
If you have a sense of irony or humour, you're usually cut down, as you're usually distorted or misinterpreted.

George R. R. Martin
Most of nature is inherently chaotic. It's not rigidly determined in the old sense. It's not rigidly predictable.

For the past two years, President Obama has promised our children the moon, stars, rainbows, unicorns and universal health care for all. But the White House Santa's cradle-to-grave entitlement mandates are a spectacularly predictable bust.
I was too restless as a boy to sit through an entire mass. It was akin to aversion training. I looked at it like a puppet show with a totally predictable story line. The only aspect I really liked was the music.
Frans de Waal

I'm conservative, and people know where I stand. They can trust me to do what I say I'm going to do. I'm predictable.

Justice Scalia is predictable. He can be counted on to come down with a conservative opinion, and generally, to bring Justice Clarence Thomas with him.
F. Lee Bailey
The American people are smart. They've gotten sick of the predictable hyperpartisan talking points and canned anger.
You learn that not all things fall into a certain kind of pattern that can be predictable and that can be understandable and that's going to be easy, you know.
John F. Kennedy
