Linwood Barclay
I’m an architect. Before you start pouring the concrete, you build a foundation that is solid so that when you take the scaffolding down, it holds – forever. So that when junior high schools are doing ‘Hunchback,’ a 12-year-old as Frollo still works on some level.

My wife and I are rock solid together and, curiously enough, always have been.

Martina McBride
Legend’ is a stylised film. The character I play is a complete egoist. He cannot tolerate anyone touching him or slapping him. Whenever anyone antagonises him, he becomes cruel. That’s how the ‘war’ between the hero and him starts. It’s a solid meaty break for me!
Jagapathi Babu
I grew up in Hollywood, California. A lot of my parents’ friends were in the motion picture industry, but I saw their doctor friends as more solid. I admired them; there was a peacefulness in them, a sense of purpose that I liked. So I became very interested in being a surgeon.
Spencer Johnson
When I first toured North America, everyone was saying that it was working because there is such as a solid Korean fan base here. The truth is, that is less than five per cent of the audience, which is mixed of all backgrounds.

Jason Collins
I cook a little bit. I make a Hungarian dish called chicken paprikash that’s out of this world. I’ll give a heads-up to all of your readers that it doesn’t have to be between Thai and Mexican every night. Toss some Hungarian in every once in a while. You will not be sorry. Good, solid peasant food.
Adam Carolla
The Omega Point Theory can be a solid foundation of support for all of the great human religions.
Frank Tipler

Victoria Coren Mitchell

The absence of political personalities in the government will help rather than hinder a solid base of support for the government in parliament and in the political parties because it will remove one ground for disagreement.
Mario Monti
But Dennis was a really solid musician, and we really needed somebody who could play bass like him.
Neil Innes
I try to start every day with some sort of vegetable and fruit juice before I eat any kind of solid food. Because that really jump starts your body and digestive system with the high content of micronutrients that your body needs.
Jake Arrieta
I have to make sure I get eight hours of solid sleep a night.
Adam Vinatieri
I think in the title race it’s crucial to be defensively as solid as possible.
Ilkay Gundogan
As a large producer of solid waste, the Commonwealth must lead by example and transition away from single-use disposable plastics to create a cleaner, more sustainable future for all Virginians.
Ralph Northam
I try to wrestle one time a week with good, solid people.
Ben Askren
The outfield is solid, so is the catching and the infield.
Barry Zito
Today we take New England clam chowder as something traditional that makes our roots as American cooking very solid, with a lot of foundation. But the first person who decided to mix potatoes and clams and bacon and cream, in his own way 100 to 200 years ago, was a modernist.
Jose Andres
I was lucky in the sense that I started work very young but had a solid family base provided by my mother. She instilled a strong sense of perspective and humility in me from a very early age.
Elijah Wood
I love to play three-quarter iron shots. They take a lot of extra movement out of the swing, which increases my chance of hitting it solid with the face square to the target.
Gary Woodland
I’m playing Kyle Edmund, who is so solid. He’s an unbelievable player. He goes for his shots. He’s not afraid to take it to the guy.
Denis Shapovalov
I’ve had all my teeth replaced with solid gold replicas of the originals.
Genesis P-Orridge
If I’m going to act in someone’s movie, I want the movie to be interesting and be able to get a couple of solid doubles.
Albert Brooks
If you have multiple events and don’t want to spend a lot, I think a solid colour crop top can be used for many different looks.
Pranitha Subhash
The man who treasures his friends is usually solid gold himself.
Marjorie Holmes
My body’s feeling it a little bit. But one good thing, my back is in good shape, and that’s my main concern. I know that my legs are going to take awhile to get back to where I was a few years ago, but as long as my back is solid, I feel that I can play many years.
Mario Lemieux
People are forgiving of v 1.0 of a product if it’s truly innovative and useful. Then you can get away with a lot. But if you’re merely marginally improving the status quo, then you better be rock solid.
Guy Kawasaki
It doesn’t matter if you have a six-minute match on ‘Superstars,’ go out and steal the show. Go have a great, solid match. Somebody’s going to say, ‘Who cares about ‘Superstars?’ Nobody watches it. And it’s only six minutes.’ That’s the wrong attitude. That’s a loser’s attitude, and that’s what I’ve told dozens of talents.
Jim Ross
The nice thing about asteroids is that once you’ve found them, and once you have a good solid orbit on them, you can predict a hundred years ahead of time whether there is a likelihood of an impact with Earth.
Rusty Schweickart
You dream about getting to be a part of really solid projects.
Eric Johnson
I think McGee is a pretty solid character.
Sean Murray
Don’t wallow in brainstorming. Time spent fiddling with a business plan or filling up whiteboards with ideas is time that you could spend actually launching your business and seeing if the idea floats. Launching gives you real, solid feedback, instead of the imaginary ‘what if’ scenarios dreamed up in a conference room.
Naveen Jain
Creating jobs is a team effort built upon solid relationships with business and industry leaders.
Kay Ivey
Privacy about giving is counterproductive. There is solid scientific research showing that people are more likely to give if they can see that others are giving. The richest people, in particular, should be setting an example.
Peter Singer
CCTV is seen either as a symbol of Orwellian dystopia or a technology that will lead to crime-free streets and civil behaviour. While arguments continue, there is very little solid data in the public domain about the costs, quantity and effectiveness of surveillance.
Heather Brooke
It took me a solid four or five years to feel really comfortable in front of the camera.
Ari Graynor
I have always felt that if a man gives you a solid gold key to his door he is entitled to the courtesy of a visit.
Hedy Lamarr
The usual metric for whether a planet is habitable or not is to ascertain whether liquid water could exist on its surface. Most worlds will either be too cold, too hot or of a type (like Jupiter) that may have no solid surface and be swaddled in noxious gases.
Seth Shostak
Going into a contest, I do not eat solid food and take in minimal calories for days, so I am hungry.
Joey Chestnut
You think that a wall as solid as the earth separates civilization from barbarism. I tell you the division is a thread, a sheet of glass. A touch here, a push there, and you bring back the reign of Saturn.
John Buchan
I want to make a good, solid kung fu movie.
Keanu Reeves
I believe in the gold standard. I like solid lumps of things. You can always melt them down.
Suzy Parker
I was so deep in red ink coming out of ECW that I had to make a good solid living just to get my nose above the water line because of ECW.
Shane Douglas
I was really conscious of that when I went in because I felt that I was pretty solid on the first one, but I didn’t have the groove exactly where I wanted it.
John Otto
I think you have to feel your best by yourself. I do think it’s important to have a solid friend that you can turn to, though – one that you can vent to.
Winnie Harlow
The good name of the United Nations is one of its most valuable assets – but also one of its most vulnerable. The Charter calls on staff to uphold the highest levels of efficiency, competence and integrity, and I will seek to ensure to build a solid reputation for living up to that standard.
Ban Ki-moon
Before the Polaroid commercials, my image was that of a solid actress, a theater actress who could do anything. But the Polaroid commercials were high comedy… Through them I was finally noticed as a comedian.
Mariette Hartley
Before the military coup in Chile, we had the idea that military coups happen in Banana Republics, somewhere in Central America. It would never happen in Chile. Chile was such a solid democracy. And when it happened, it had brutal characteristics.
Isabel Allende
Cersei in ‘Game of Thrones’ is quite solid and stiff.
Lena Headey
The only solid and lasting peace between a man and his wife is, doubtless, a separation.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
The profession of book writing makes horse racing seem like a solid, stable business.
John Steinbeck
Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
I do tend to look back to my parents generation and think wow! what a great way to be, to live with one person for a lifetime, to bring your kids up in these really solid families.
Tony Parsons
I know I can serve Hawaii and our country well in the U.S. Senate, know we can mount a solid statewide campaign, know we have a good chance of prevailing.
Ed Case
I love salad, but I have to have something ‘solid’ with it because I don’t feel satisfied without carbs.
Laila Rouass
For a while I didn’t believe in marriage. But I think I do believe in having a love. I’m not saying only one love ever, but in having a good, solid relationship. I think that’s possible.
Penn Badgley
Growing up, I didn’t come from a musical family. Neither of my parents played an instrument, sang out loud, or listened to the radio with frequency. The record collection in the living room was only about 2 feet long – and that included 4 solid inches of Neil Diamond and Herb Alpert.
Amor Towles
In any solid, good relationship, it takes a while to trust someone.
Minka Kelly
There is a solid satisfaction in one’s having and being conscious that he merits the good opinion of men of true discernment and real worth. But to have a name among the weak and the wicked is shame and reproach.
Samuel Adams
Show business offers more solid promises than Catholicism.
John Guare
We must promote solid traits such as work ethics, a dignified lifestyle, matching actions to rhetoric, performance rather than grandstanding.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
At twenty-one, so many things appear solid, permanent, untenable.
Orson Welles
We all think there is a formula, (but) as long as we love our children, that’s really the only solid thing I know that works across the board.
Jada Pinkett Smith
Building a solid foundation in the early years of a child’s life will not only help him or her reach their reach their full potential but will also result in better societies as a whole.
Novak Djokovic
Good vinegars come in all shapes, sizes, strengths, and viscosities and are probably my most often used seasoning agent in the kitchen after the other major acids we use in solid form: sugar and salt.
Andrew Zimmern
I grew up between the two world wars and received a rather solid general education, the kind middle class children enjoyed in a country whose educational system had its roots dating back to the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
George Andrew Olah
At Imgur, we need a solid product that works on various platforms, so we’re looking at iOS, Android, front end, back end, and devops.
Alan Schaaf
I have solid decent people around me, and I believe that is all it is, because you will get destroyed if you have people bringing you down.
Alicia Keys
As an actor, so much of life is out of your control, and it’s really not solid.
Cress Williams
The privilege of a middle-class, stable, bourgeois life is that you can pretend that you are not complicated and project yourself as a solid, uncomplicated person, with refined life goals and achievements.
Aleksandar Hemon
Don’t be afraid to convince yourself that your business is incredible, but don’t expect others to be convinced without solid data to back it up. Ideas can be a worth a lot, but they are usually not. Execution is everything.
Palmer Luckey
I keep my head straight by having the right people around me, from my friends and family to my management and my team. They all keep me in my place. If I didn’t have them supporting all the work that I do, I wouldn’t be in such a solid place.
Jess Glynne
I’ve been subtle in my taste. It’s all about solid colours – mostly blue, white, and black. Also, I believe one should always feel comfortable in what they wear. Because when they’re not, their body language is always a big give-away.
Kartik Aaryan
I like to wear my dad’s shoes to auditions as sort of a lucky thing. I feel like I’m on solid ground.
Bill Pullman
We want to play nice football but there are times in games and situations where you can’t do that, and you have to come together and be solid.
Ryan Mason
Bananas are the base of all my smoothies! They are packed with potassium and give a solid base flavor.
Hannah Bronfman
After my first ‘Sports Illustrated’ cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. I’m not a toy; I’m a human. I’m not here to be used.
Kate Upton
When you ask people, ‘What’s the opposite of fragile?,’ they tend to say robust, resilient, adaptable, solid, strong. That’s not it. The opposite of fragile is something that gains from disorder.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
The Democratic chairman doesn’t need to be a household name. Most people didn’t know who Ron Brown was when he was chairman of the Democratic Party, but he put the party in a position where Bill Clinton could come in and he had a solid base to run from.
Susan Estrich
When you’re writing criticism or thinking critically, to draw a very limited minor conclusion from solid evidence is really not thinking.
Greil Marcus
We believe in a solid, just, compassionate, hopeful future. That’s why I’m in politics. That’s why I’m running for president. And that’s why I’m going to win!
Walter F. Mondale
The Book of Mormon is concrete and solid, they can hold it, and they can visualize that they have to pray to decide if this physical thing is true. There is no room for interpretation.
Richard G. Scott
My upbringing was solid because of the people I had around me.
Kevin Hart
Since ballet has such a solid classical framework, everything is supposed to be a very specific way, so you learn to look at things with an eye towards perfection. But in acting, it isn’t always necessarily good to be like that – really magical things can happen when it’s unexpected and messy.
Sonoya Mizuno
Since I retired, I very much enjoy watching Serena Williams play. While I was playing, she was one of the toughest players I ever faced. Her ground strokes are so solid, her serve is one of the most powerful in women’s tennis, and mentally she is just so strong.
Monica Seles
I think the fact that I have a solid head on my shoulders and a brain inside that head gives me an edge over my competitors. It helps when I am giving interviews, charting out strategy for my career and choosing scripts.
Richa Chadha
The most effective check and balance on government has been an independent press which maintains its credibility by ensuring that its criticism is balanced and based on fact – based indeed on solid journalistic work.
Malcolm Turnbull
Traditionally, the role of the bass player was just to keep things simple and solid, so it’s really a special thing when you can get a player that can actually bring in a lot of presence and also a visual presence, too.
Robert Trujillo
Liturgy is like a strong tree whose beauty is derived from the continuous renewal of its leaves, but whose strength comes from the old trunk, with solid roots in the ground.
Pope Paul VI
The plays that I performed in the ’70s are not the same plays that I perform today. However, what they have in common is a solid foundation of a story, and good, healthy comedy.
Y. G. Mahendran
If we get a few solid festival shows then I will have no problem booking the lads for as many quality club shows around them to make a nice tour come together.
Pat Garrett
Pollution is a serious one. Water pollution, air pollution, and then solid hazardous waste pollution. And then beyond that, we also have the resources issue. Not just water resources but other natural resources, the mining resources being consumed, and the destruction of our ecosystem.
Ma Jun
We all like going to the dark side of things; we all like dipping into worlds that we don’t know anything about, or hopefully don’t know anything about. I think ‘Banshee’ gives people a chance to do that pretty safely because we all know there’s a solid buffer between the show and reality.
Antony Starr
The biggest start-up successes – from Henry Ford to Bill Gates to Mark Zuckerberg – were pioneered by people from solidly middle-class backgrounds. These founders were not wealthy when they began. They were hungry for success, but knew they had a solid support system to fall back on if they failed.
Eric Ries
For people like me, books are something solid and real, whereas digital stuff is a bit more ethereal. I like the trophy on my shelf, the presence in my home. A nice book is just as valuable as a decoration as a beautiful porcelain urn – and, let’s face it, a hell of a lot more useful.
John Romaniello
I mean, movies in general tend to sort of portray time, space and identity as these very solid things. Time moves forward. Space is what it is. You are you, and you’re always you.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
I have a lot of confidence in my game. I’m not the flashiest guy, not the most athletic. I’m just solid. And I’ve always tried to do everything right.
Jrue Holiday
There was a danger when I was in So Solid and we made ’21 Seconds.’ But we’re just showing a slice of life.
Ashley Walters
Setting a solid screen is something I’m proud of.
Robin Lopez
We’ve pumped waste into cavities in solid rock and found that it spread through the rock.
David R. Brower
Providing patients and consumers with solid information on the cost and quality of their healthcare options can literally make the difference between life or death; and play a decisive role in whether a family or employer can afford healthcare.
Timothy Murphy
Consolidation isn’t new, though… it was a major factor in our rush to form the Gathering and place a stake in the ground to ensure that there is a solid path for developers who are willing to stay independent and build their own companies on their own terms.
Mike Wilson
Playing in my early bands, working as a studio musician, producing and going to art school was, in retrospect, my apprenticeship. I was learning and creating a solid foundation of ideas, but I wasn’t really playing music.
Jimmy Page
I’m at a point in my life where I have something solid now. I’m a peaceful person, and I want to be surrounded by peace no matter what I’m doing.
Cheryl James
My accent has changed my whole life. When I was younger, it was very Nigerian, then when we went to England, it was very British. I think I have a very strange, hybrid accent, and I’ve worked very hard to get a solid American accent, which is what I use most of the time.
Toks Olagundoye
Carbon dioxide is unusual because it doesn’t go through the usual three phases of matter, from solid to liquid to gas, but it goes straight from solid to gas. The volume of the gas is much greater than the volume of the solid. When a solid turns into a gas, we say it sublimes. The process is sublimation.
Robert Winston
For too long people have backed companies on hope value rather than solid products coming out. Now we are coming out the other side.
Daniel Morgan
It’s just a lovely way to do comedy, where you have the freedom to try stuff, but then you also have a really strong, solid script to go back to if you’re brain dead and tired.
Natasia Demetriou
The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I realized then that the generations may change but the strength of our nation remains solid.
Jane D. Hull
When it comes to Pakistan, the first word that comes to the mind of the Chinese is ‘iron brother.’ To us Chinese, Pakistan is always a trustworthy friend who is as solid as iron. Actually, Chinese netizens refer to Pakistan as ‘Iron Pak.’ This testifies to the strength of China-Pakistan friendship.
Li Keqiang
Our country has often stood like a solid rock in the face of common danger, and there is a deep underlying unity which runs like a golden thread through all our seeming diversity.
Lal Bahadur Shastri
I need solid roles that provide scope for performance, even if it is just a few scenes.
I actually wanted to be an architect when I was a kid, but I did a solid geometry course where we had to build a geodesic dome out of toothpicks, and mine came out looking like an alien space station. I threw it against a wall and gave up.
Alison Sudol
There was a solid six-month period where I was going out on castings and I was laughed out of the room because I’m much more petite than other models.
Lydia Hearst
I was terrified of vault, like literally I hated it. I had a fear of running as fast as I could at a solid object, which is I think a normal fear to have because nobody would really want to do that. Once I got over the fear of running into the table I just kind of relaxed and now it’s like autopilot. I love it.
Alicia Sacramone
Painting, for me, is a dynamic balance and wholeness of life; it is mysterious and transcending, yet solid and real.
Richard Pousette-Dart
All I can say is this: what I’m doing with children is good, solid common sense.
Jo Frost
I can’t for the life of me think of the link between Iraq and why a fruit vendor self-immolates in Tunisia and cracks this seemingly solid crust that turns out to be so fragile that societal unrest touches off.
David Petraeus
I take my kids to school. And if I go to work, I go to work, and they visit me on set. I come home. I have dinner with my family. I have breakfast with my family. I have a very solid, very warm home.
Angelina Jolie
I’ve got all these memories of guys just trying to get steals and not being very solid or very good defensively. They have all these steals so they must be a great defender. I usually find it to be the opposite.
Mike Budenholzer
Local news taught me to take each moment as one of extreme importance – don’t waste people’s time. Give them solid information in a compelling fashion so they will remember it and use it in their lives.
Harris Faulkner
Everything is always against you when making a movie, and if you don’t have a solid blueprint that the entire team can get behind and understand and then execute, then you’re going to be lost on the set.
Wes Ball
Picking just one game above all is nearly impossible for me, but if I had to, it would be ‘Metal Gear Solid.’ I remember being completely blown away with the story, the mechanics and the overall presentation on my first playthrough.
Cory Barlog
We think that the world is a solid, vivid place, full of shape and colour and solid objects like this table and this microphone and so on, but we actually create that in our heads out of the bits of information that hit the back of our eyeballs or hit our eardrums or hit our tongues or whatever.
Douglas Adams
The acceptance that all that is solid has melted into the air, that reality and morality are not givens but imperfect human constructs, is the point from which fiction begins.
Salman Rushdie
The best messages in any given negotiation are really implied indirectly, come to the other person based on thinking that you’re getting them to do – getting them to get some really solid thought behind their answers. And so a great thing to send someone in an email is, ‘Have you given up on this project?’
Christopher Voss
When it comes to hitting solid drives, the secret is to swing within yourself. I know that sounds like a cliche, but it’s true. If you swing at 100 miles per hour and hit it on the toe, you won’t hit the ball as far as you would with an 80-mph swing that catches the ball in the center of the clubface.
Sergio Garcia
In a deep metaphysical sense, all that is conditioned is illusory. All phenomena are literally ‘appearances,’ the outer masks in which the One Reality shows itself forth in our changing universe. The more ‘material’ and solid the appearance, the further is it from reality, and therefore the more illusory it is.
Annie Besant
It’s sobering to think of the seventeen chief justices; certainly a solid majority of them have to be characterized as failures. The successful ones are hard to number.
John Roberts
There are a million ways of arriving at a performance, any number of them solid.
Ali Farahnakian
Arsenal do not have money to spend, so they are gambling on young players. Arsenal are obliged to sell their best players and bet on youth – but what counts is having a team, great players, and a solid squad to win titles.
Samir Nasri
I think it’s a mother’s dream come true to see it work out that way. Not just the mother, but certainly parents, to know that their children have a very solid moral foundation and religious foundation.
Erika Slezak
You don’t get ‘The Unfinished Swan’ or ‘Shadow of the Colossus’ or even Telltale’s ‘Walking Dead’ until you’ve sat through the long, linear infodumps of something like ‘Metal Gear Solid’.
Dave Morris
What I will say though is that I’ve got quite a big back, from doing pull-ups, and that will make your punches more solid. But in terms of the hardness of your punch, it’s about timing and speed.
Carl Froch
So it takes years to make a solid company.
Ninette de Valois
You can’t build a great building on a weak foundation. You must have a solid foundation if you’re going to have a strong superstructure.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Being solid in your own zone, being a good faceoff guy, those are things that are all important as you go deep in the playoffs.
Connor McDavid
When you go, ‘Listen, I didn’t know. I didn’t know the rules.’ That works. That’s a good, solid defense. One time.
Chael Sonnen
If we want the Republic to be solid, we must first build its foundation. We need not look abroad for this foundation; we should seek it in the hearts of all the people of the nation.
Sun Yat-sen
I meal prep when I’m traveling and make sure to have three solid, high-protein and low-carb meals a day with a few snacks in between. But I try not to be too hard on myself. At the end of the day, it’s all about having a healthy balance.
Lauren Alaina
When there is a solid base of Italian players, those who come in take their example, and then everyone is working in the same direction.
Andrea Pirlo
Chinese leaders are walking a tightrope in terms of maintaining internal stability so that the solid platform that has produced amazing results can continue to improve the quality of life for more of its citizens.
Neil Bush
The left is being funded primarily by the drug traffickers who provide this tax money and that’s why the guerrillas in Colombia, unlike the guerrillas anywhere else in Latin America, have been able to survive for 40 years because they have a hard, solid source of income.
Alma Guillermoprieto
Historical change is like an avalanche. The starting point is a snow-covered mountainside that looks solid. All changes take place under the surface and are rather invisible.
Norman Davies
I try to stick to real food, meaning anything that has been grown naturally or organically and that is not majorly processed: meats and proteins, a lot of green vegetables, less sugary fruits, solid starches and nuts.
Jenna Johnson
You make sure you broaden yourself and have a good solid background in many different things. That’s what you need to be a good scientist.
Heidi Hammel
Saudi Arabia has stability. The social contract and the political contract between the king and the rulers and the royal family and the ruled people in Saudi Arabia is very strong and the bondage is so solid.
Al-Waleed bin Talal
If I can just be thought of as Omari Hardwick who had a really, really solid career, and whose work is appreciated in its own right, I think that would be a great legacy to leave behind.
Omari Hardwick
MTV essentially killed ‘American Bandstand’ and ‘Solid Gold,’ because music videos are an easier way for pop artists to gain television exposure.
Don Cornelius
Usually, a team of Claudio is really very solid. They usually defend very well, sometimes low, but very well.
Maurizio Sarri
That’s the thing I like about my sound. It’s real raw and very unsafe compared to a solid state kind of sound.
Adam Jones
Having done ‘Misfits’ for three years solid, you become known for doing one thing, so I’ve wanted to change things up as much as possible with each job.
Antonia Thomas
Time passed solely in the pursuit of pleasure leaves no solid enjoyment for the future; but from the hours you spend in reading and studying useful books, you will gather a golden harvest in future years.
Dorothea Dix
With all the… success that I’ve been lucky enough to get? That doesn’t happen unless the home life is solid.
Dwayne Johnson
Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.
C. S. Lewis
I got a solid fan base and they love me and I love them. They know I’ma give them what they want to hear.
Certain people want to binge-watch stuff, and they want 10 solid hours of whatever, not realizing that writing 10 hours of quality television is a exhausting experience. Writing an hour and a half is a warm hug compared to writing 10 hours of television.
Justin Theroux
Anyone that’s ever listened to my message knows very well, that I believe in very solid biblical beliefs.
Paula White
In burgundy, a well-cut and properly tailored velvet blazer looks dashing with gray flannels and a cashmere sweater or a sleek, solid velvet tie.
Roger Stone
I’ve built a solid career there, but America’s ten times the size. Now that we’re onto the third record, I feel like the stars have aligned and American audiences are embracing my music even more.
Chantal Kreviazuk
I was the idiot on the couch, ‘I could beat some of these guys!’ I would say that about Tim Sylvia. But I was like, ‘Freakin’ Arlovski, he looks like an athlete.’ He looked rock solid.
Travis Browne
Success at poker is ultimately the result of solid fundamentals and the ability to read your opponents’ betting patterns. This is especially true when playing online. But playing live poker is a completely different animal. In this venue, the presence of physical tells can not be overlooked.
Daniel Negreanu
The imaginations which people have of one another are the solid facts of society.
Charles Horton Cooley
I am tremendously excited to introduce a unique ‘Metal Gear Solid’ experience to a new audience of gamers as well as collaborate with my mentor in game design, Mr. Miyamoto, on ‘Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes’ for Nintendo GameCube.
Hideo Kojima
‘Call Me’ is not an exceptional Al Green album, but it is as solid as a rock at its center.
Jon Landau
What we call real estate – the solid ground to build a house on – is the broad foundation on which nearly all the guilt of this world rests.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Above all, remember that God looks for solid virtues in us, such as patience, humility, obedience, abnegation of your own will – that is, the good will to serve Him and our neighbor in Him. His providence allows us other devotions only insofar as He sees that they are useful to us.
Saint Ignatius
I didn’t have any stability in my life, so I was probably a bit lost as a person. I didn’t know where I fitted in professionally and I didn’t really know where I fitted in with my personal life and seeing my son, and it was really confusing. I think if you have one solid, then the other one you can manage.
Danny Drinkwater
So Solid was more to me about the camaraderie, the unit between me and the other boys.
Ashley Walters
The sea from Dunkirk to Dover during these days of the evacuation looked like any coastal road in England on a bank holiday. It was solid with shipping.
Douglas Bader
The media thinks that only the cutting edge of science, the very latest controversies, are worth reporting on. How often do you see headlines like ‘General Relativity still governing planetary orbits’ or ‘Phlogiston theory remains false’? By the time anything is solid science, it is no longer a breaking headline.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
Their families helped them realize that there was more out there for them. These students came to Delaware State because of its inexpensive tuition, closeness to home, and solid reputation.
Michael N. Castle
Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm.
Carlo Collodi
It is very true to say that work done by writers is quite often an attempt to give solid expression to that which is bothering them… They feel they have got it right if they express the stress.
Seamus Heaney
When you count on someone you want him to be there in times of need. I may not be there when you are popping champagne bottles but I will be there, like a solid rock, if there is a tragedy.
Mahima Chaudhry
I was set free because my greatest fear had been realized, and I still had a daughter who I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
J. K. Rowling
Put me on solid ground and I’ll start tapping! At my age they say to keep moving.
Dick Van Dyke
Since I was a kid, music has been a huge part of my life. My parents had a pretty solid vinyl collection and exposed me to some amazing artists.
Reid Scott
Football is a game of zone blitzes, West Coast offenses and check-offs, sure, but it’s really a game of field position: Even without a touchdown, a solid return game can quietly be the difference between an offense that’s pinned against its own goal line and one that’s in the driver’s seat to score.
Mark Schlereth
You know, once something freezes, it’s solid. That’s the key to the arctic – they didn’t fear the cold, they made use of it.
Wade Davis
The web has changed the way we organise information in a very clear way: from the boundaried, solid format of books and newspapers to something liquid and free-flowing, with limitless possibilities.
Katharine Viner
Instead of stubbornly attempting to use surrealism for purposes of subversion, it is necessary to try to make of surrealism something as solid, complete and classic as the works of museums.
Salvador Dali
He was born in 1741, a descendant of the Rhode Island equivalent of royalty. The first Benedict Arnold had been one of the colony’s founders, and subsequent generations had helped to establish the Arnolds as solid and respected citizens.
Nathaniel Philbrick
U.S. economic activity continues to expand, led by solid growth in household spending. But business investment remains soft, and subdued foreign demand and the appreciation of the dollar since mid-2014 continue to restrain exports.
Janet Yellen
When you think of Rihanna’s voice, you think of this whole, rich thing, solid like a tree trunk.
Chris Martin
The verbal interpretation, on the other hand, i.e. the metaphysics of quantum physics, is on far less solid ground. In fact, in more than forty years physicists have not been able to provide a clear metaphysical model.
Erwin Schrodinger
Really, I’m never much of a goal-setter. Whenever I’ve tried to make big, solid plans, they don’t happen. I’m more into whatever the circumstances are that present themselves, making wise decisions around that.
Rose McIver
Stock market bubbles don’t grow out of thin air. They have a solid basis in reality, but reality as distorted by a misconception.
George Soros
I’m a huge advocate of pitching. You have to have good pitching as the solid core, the foundation. It keeps you in every game.
Tom Seaver
History is prone to mistakes in identity, and facts are not always solid things.
Sarah Churchwell
That’s why my relationship to the Lord is so important. He doesn’t leave you hanging. He lets you know. He gives you answers. Solid answers.
Anita Bryant
The more consistent a father can be or a mentor can be in the person’s life and teach them principles of real solid manhood, character, integrity and leadership, the more consistent you can be in the person’s life and teach them those things at a younger age, and then the better off they’ll be.
Allan Houston
As for Vietnam, what matters is that Kennedy successfully resisted pressure to send anything more than military advisers, a stance that was a likely prelude to complete withdrawal from the conflict. There is solid evidence of his eagerness to end America’s military role in that country’s civil war.
Robert Dallek
You can have solid third party politics, but the problem is you’re all lumped in to all the fringe groups. That’s a stereotype that happens.
Jesse Ventura
I’m sure I’ll get lambasted for this, but I don’t get the Asuka thing. Like, I really don’t. She’s fine, and she’s solid, but I don’t know. Even going back to the NXT stuff, I’ve watched it. I don’t know. I just never really bought in.
I had a very big crush on Errol Flynn during ‘Captain Blood.’ I thought he was absolutely smashing for three solid years, but he never guessed. Then he had one on me but nothing came of it. I’m not going to regret that; it could have ruined my life.
