It's a very smart, progressive bunch, these people that make country music. They're not country hicks sitting behind a desk with a big cigar giving out record deals and driving round in Cadillacs with cattle horns on the front grille: it's a bunch of really wonderful, open-minded, great people down on Music Row that make this music.
The atom bombs are piling up in the factories, the police are prowling through the cities, the lies are streaming from the loudspeakers, but the earth is still going round the sun.
I hate patriotism... I can't stand it. It's a round world last time I checked.
Women have seldom sufficient employment to silence their feelings; a round of little cares, or vain pursuits frittering away all strength of mind and organs, they become naturally only objects of sense.
I have a nice smile, pretty lips, and big round cheeks. They help me look like a teenager.
It was the nation and the race dwelling all round the globe that had the lion's heart. I had the luck to be called upon to give the roar.
On the earth the broken arcs; in the heaven a perfect round.
My mother-in-law has come round to our house at Christmas seven years running. This year we're having a change. We're going to let her in.
I can't bear art that you can walk round and admire. A book should be either a bandit or a rebel or a man in the crowd.

I always had boyfriends, but I never imagined a proposal or a wedding. To me, that was like having a ball and chain round your neck.
When I found Jesus Christ, I learned to be a better athlete. I didn't have to go out there and knock them out in the first round. I've learned to be patient, skillful in the ring. At the same time, I wanted to prove to other boxers that you can take off this killer instinct stuff, you can be a great athlete, a great boxer, and love your brother.
I'm swanning round the world looking at the most fabulously interesting things. Such good fortune.
I tried real hard to play golf, and I was so bad at it they would have to check me for ticks at the end of the round because I'd spent about half the day in the woods.
It is said that love makes the world go 'round - the announcement lacks verification. It's wind from the dinner horn that does it.

I like to be lean. If I get too bulky I can't move well and I like to move. When I'm not training, I get really round and soft.
I find it weird the way people get so excited about celebrity. If my friends are on the phone, their friends will say: 'Is that kid from 'Love Actually' there?' And the phone gets passed round and I have to speak to this stranger asking: 'Are you famous?' I don't know how to answer.
A good fighter usually knows, to within a very few seconds, when a three-minute round is going to end.
The first thing I learned in boxing is to not get hit. That's the art of boxing. Execute your opponent without getting hit. In sports school, we were putting our hands behind our backs and having to defend ourselves with our shoulders, by rolling, by moving round the ring, moving out feet.
My great forte in killing buffaloes was to get them circling by riding my horse at the head of the herd and shooting their leaders. Thus the brutes behind were crowded to the left, so that they were soon going round and round.
