As far juicing goes, I’ve done it for a couple of years; it’s very good to cleanse the body. Doing the smoothies and getting the fruits and veggies in there just gives you more energy. You’ll feel quite different after a couple weeks of doing it. Be consistent with it and you’ll see it really makes a difference.
India Are Playing Very Good Cricket Under The Leadership Of MS Dhoni.
Jimmy Page is an excellent producer. Led Zeppelin I and II are classics. As a player he’s very good in the studio, but I’ve never seen him play well live. He’s sloppy. He plays like he’s got a broken hand and he’s two years old. If you put out a good album and play like a two year old, what’s the purpose?
We just became very good friends [with Dwight Eisenhower], we played golf, we played heart exhibitions. Then his doctor said he should not play golf anymore.
First of all, Bill Clinton was an extremely good president and more importantly, the country was in a very good position when he actually walked away.
He was, he would be the first to admit, a coward, an incompetent, and not even very good at being a failure.
The longest journey begins with a single step, not with the turn of an ignition key. ThatвЂ™s the best thing about walking, the journey itself. It doesnвЂ™t much matter whether you get where youвЂ™re going or not. YouвЂ™ll get there anyway. Every good hike brings you eventually back home. Right where you started.
I never thought Hillary Clinton was a very good politician.
Every good that you do, every good that you say, every good thought you think, vibrates on and on and never ceases. The evil remains only until it is overcome by good, but the good remains forever.
One thing about school – I always had this attitude that I was in school to learn, and attempted to do whatever was involved in that process, while school had this attitude that I was there to earn grades, which I couldn’t care less about. Unsurprisingly, my grades weren’t very good.
I think God has blessed us. He has blessed the Republican Party with some very good candidates. The Democrats can’t even find one.
Every good girl loved a bad boy. It was a fact of life, a quirk of nature. Opposites attract, and the badder the boy, the more attractive he was to that good girl who couldn’t help but be drawn to him.
Well, from 1969 to 1984, until he died of AIDS, a teacher and I were very good friends. He even attended celebrations at my home, and I have to admit I even went with him to gay bars once in a while. So I know a homophobe when I see one. Pat Buchanan ain’t no homophobe, believe me.
The world when seen through a little child’s eyes, greatly resembles paradise. Happiness is doing with a smile what you have to do anyway. This time, like all time, is a very good one if we but know what to do with it.
I think Dogen can be a very good introduction for people who want to meditate in whatever way, whether it’s yoga, qigong, or Tibetan. It can help widen and deepen anyone’s meditation experience.
I sort of was good at writing essays. I was never very good at mathematics, and I was never very good at algebra. I loved science, but I wasn’t sure of it.
And in nineteen seventy two I almost wasn’t, on the team, but I knew about it just before Olympic Games for three months before this why this is was not very good for me. I’d been ready to go, you know.
When I design the clothes, I have a very good team around me, showing me different pieces and cuts. I’m very involved in the process, I go to L.A. and get onto the design floor, and I help pick out the best pieces.
Very, very good Pavlov, all your dogs have barked when you rang the bell. Your test was successful.
When my first child was born in 1962, I wrote a letter to my grandfather telling him how happy I was but how concerned; concerned because there were so many visions which were not very good.
The analogies between science and art are very good as long as you are talking about the creation and the performance. The creation is certainly very analogous. The aesthetic pleasure of the craftsmanship of performance is also very strong in science.
Both Rowling and Meyer, theyвЂ™re speaking directly to young people. вЂ¦ The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer canвЂ™t write worth a darn. SheвЂ™s not very good.
I feel very good and positive about my future. I look forward to seeing the fans and doing what I do.
Forgetting is a very good survival mechanism.
I’m not a very good lover. I’m so nervous about my sexuality.
Top-shelf fiction, a Crown Royal ride into the heart of Night and New York. Con Lehane’s work is reminiscent of the best of Lawrence Block, which is to say that this is very good stuff, indeed.
I love the ocean and have a passion for surfing, even though I’m not very good at it. I like getting out there and paddling around.
It is possible for science to make the world like the Garden of Eden! Amen. But it is also possible, and sometimes it seems more probable, that science will make the world a very good imitation of hell.
Not that I wouldn’t have been equally happy to see the old buddies and see it all start up again that way. But this was more of a work situation, and a very good one.
I wandered around not knowing what I was doing in The Great Waldo Pepper and feeling pretty lost, and they rightly cut my part down. I don’t think I was in very good emotional shape. I think I was a bit of a mess. I’d done about six movies back-to-back, and was in a state of complete exhaustion.
I think we have got the wood on South Africa, but that does not mean they are not a good team. They intimidate a lot of teams but we intimidate them. There is no disrespect for South Africa; they are a very good team.
I’m just delighted to get my hands on him. Paul Nicholls was very good about the whole affair. He said he would like to retain him but felt it was to the advantage of his owners he should be sold at this time.
Very good training to just be a person is growing up in Canada. People say a lot of things about Canada, like that it’s boring, but if you look around the world, you can praise boring. It’s a very civilized place to grow up. I’m very proud of it.
I became a loner. I became a mountain man. A lot of those things are very good qualities and they help you do your work, help you be singular and keep the artistic integrity of your work intact, but they don’t make it very easy to live your life.
We have built a very good company, and we’re proud of it. We also recognize that much of it has been built on the shoulders of the thousands of employees and leaders who have worked here before us.
I like to take a break, but at the same time, I think most actors are not very good at sitting around doing nothing because we like to work.
I wish I had more of the hero gene, but I don’t think I’d be very good at playing one.
I am not very good with relationships. With anyone. I can’t be locked up with anyone for too long.
When I played football, I liked being a goalkeeper or a midfielder. I was probably better at cricket. I would be a very good cricketer if I was a professional now. I think I would probably have been the best, in fact.
Grace alone brings about every good work in us.
I do not think an enormous permanent underclass is a very good thing to have if you’re attempting to operate something that at least pretends sometimes to be a democracy.
[Democrats] have got to start winning elections. That involves not some great idea, but it also involves recruiting candidates. And Rahm Emanuel, the mayor of Chicago, who has given obnoxiousness a new definition in his personal behavior, oftentimes in his dealings with the press, had a very good point.
I don’t know video games.The last video game I played, apart from Dance Dance Revolution at Jeremy’s house, which I was very good at – Scarlett [Johansson] and I will always have “Billie Jean” – was Super Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo. I’m from the Dark Ages.
I’m leaving the screen because I don’t think I am very good in the pictures and I have this beautiful dream that I’m elegant on the stage.
When you’re outside in those elements, there’s something out there that takes it out of you, so you work real hard. It was physically demanding, but in a very good way. It’s not a bad thing. It’s a good thing, when things are physically demanding ’cause everyone is rising to the occasion.
Spanish football is very good but every year the same teams win the league.
Right now, we don’t have a very good relation with creation.
[Max Askeli] started this very good magazine [The Reporter]. In fact, Meg Greenfield, who’s now the editorial page editor of The Washington Post, was one of the star reporters there.
I’m very good at meeting people, very outgoing.
Uribe and I have very good relations. I owe him loyalty, I admire him, he did great things for our country, and I think that because of what he did, I can now concentrate on different issues, different from what he concentrated on.
I possess every good quality, but the one that distinguishes me above all is modesty.
I am very generous with my dealers in terms of the art that they have of mine. They all have a very good selection of work that they can work with. And it is up to them to find the dealers. I don’t interfere with their selling.
Modern women – we’re very good at keeping ourselves busy. There are PTA meetings, exercising, bake sales at school. I like that my life is not the same every day.
In high school my mother advised me to make my last lines into titles. It was very good advice.
One of the problems I have with many writers is their stories are all somewhat similar. They might be very good, but they’re always on the same turf. I don’t have those limitations.
I’m not very good at praying, but what I experience when I’m writing a poem is close to prayer.
I am in very good health. I’ve never felt better.
I don’t think actresses’ lives in general are very good
You know, I’m just 6’9″ and 260. And just so happen to be very good at playing the game of basketball.
Writers never get a very good deal in Hollywood.
I have known a very good, fisher angle diligently four or six hours for a river carp, and not have a bite.
You will find it a very good practice always to verify your references, sir.
I said publicly last year that I wanted 2012 to be a great season, not just a good season. We certainly had a very good season and perhaps exceeded a few expectations. But Broncos fans, you and I know what a great season looks like.
If there’s one thing that we’re very good at as humans, it’s remembering the bad stuff. For some reason, it’s always the pain that gets you.
Pete Ham in the group was a very good writer.Г‚ He wrote the Nilsson song “Without You”, which is a seriously good song.Г‚ But the poor fellow topped himself.Г‚ He was a lovely bloke, I can still see him now.Г‚ It was a terrible loss.
I love sculpture, and minimal sculpture is really my favorite stuff, but I wasn’t very good at it, and I don’t think in a three-dimensional way.
Without the incarnation, Christianity isnвЂ™t even a very good story, and most sadly, it means nothing. “Be nice to one another” is not a message that can give my life meaning, assure me of love beyond brokenness, and break open the dark doors of death with the key of hope.
I dont call myself a very good Christian, but I think I know one when I see one, and I also think I know when I dont.
For every good art critic there may be ten great artists.
Email is a 40-year-old technology that is not going away for very good reasons – it’s the cockroach of the Internet.
I’m a very good bowler, which I discovered a few months ago.
Humans are very good at making algorithms work eventually.
As a child, I tried to play by the rules. I got very good grades in school; I was an Eagle Scout; and I believed in all of it.
I never did any training in journalism or in finance, so I really was in the deep end. I got very good at going to press conferences and nodding. I’d figure it out when I got back to the office. Charts and numbers. I’ve never been great with facts, ever, my whole life. For a journalist, that’s not a very good trait.
Jesus Christ was willing to admit every good man to the family of God. It is not the man who believes a certain something, but the man who does the will of the Father in heaven, who is right. On this basis-being right and doing right-the whole world can unite.
I was just thinking about my own natural way of one-night stands: always wanting to be more attached to something. I’m not very good at detaching myself.
I think I would have a very, very good relationship with Putin. And I think I would have a very, very good relationship with Russia.
My personality is very good for nurturing. I’m very empathetic to my artists. You speak to anyone who’s worked with me and they’ll say, “Oh yeah, Steve’s great. He doesn’t have the ego.”
By being willing to be a bad artist, you have a chance to be an artist, and perhaps, over time, a very good one.
When I talk to [my kids], I remember my father talking to me, so it’s understandable that I would make a film like “Aquarius.” A very good friend of mine saw the film, and she said it was clear that it had been made by someone who had just become a father.
I’ve had a very good career and I’m grateful that the public has had some level of acceptance and appreciation of my work.
SchrГ¶dinger’s wave-mechanics is not a physical theory, but a dodge – and a very good dodge too.
It’s not that I’m a very good person. It’s that I think I should at least look at the ways in which I am not a good person, the ways in which I so readily become the person who would not notice that the wonderful clothing I’m wearing someone is probably dying for.
It’s a very good question, very direct, and I’m not going to answer it.
Who are these bloggers? They’re not trained editors at Vogue magazine. There are bloggers writing recipes that aren’t tested that aren’t necessarily very good, or are copies of what really good editors have created and done. Bloggers create a kind of a popularity but they are not the experts. We have to understand that.
I’m very, very family oriented. I’m a big cook and a good connoisseur and I only drink very good red wines now.
If in our Saturday pursuits we’re far from God’s presence, we’re not in very good shape to worship Him on Sunday.
I am not very good at statistics. I am also a poor thinker.
She worked her toes into the sand, feeling the tiny delicious pain of the friction of tiny chips of silicon against the tender flesh between her toes. That’s life. It hurts, it’s dirty, and it feels very, very good.
It takes fifteen pounds of wild fish to get you one pound of farm tuna. Not very sustainable. It doesn’t taste very good either.
Some days I’m lucky to squeeze out a page of copy that pleases me, but I get as many as six or seven pages on a very good day; the average is probably three pages.
If you get hungry mid-day, a banana is the best snack at your desk, after a workout, or in between classes. Fruit is a very good snack in general.
I shan’t be pulling the levers there but I shall be a very good back-seat driver.
I don’t like to say bad things about paleontologists, but they’re not very good scientists. They’re more like stamp collectors.
LinkedIn is very good for browsing relationships and hooking into your contacts’ networks. It re-connected me with high-level execs I hadn’t talked to for some time, who then helped me close various deals.
I have almost the same number of days left as Barack Obama has in the White House. So we are going to stay focused on this job. I am enjoying it a lot. And we are going to see if we can achieve some very good things before the end of the year.
If you have a very good concept of your character, you can snap into it.
I wasn’t very good about juggling family and my career. I was interested in who was coming to the children’s birthday party, what my son was writing. I was thinking about Legos.
I’m just not very good at glamour… It doesn’t come easily to me.
Documentation is like sex: when it is good, it is very, very good; and when it is bad, it is better than nothing.
Every good cause is worth some inefficiency.
Why do I write about China? That is a very good question. I think there are questions about China that I haven’t been able to answer. The reason I write is that there are questions to which I want to find answers – or I want to find questions beyond those questions.
Donald Trump, as a businessman, he’s not much of a builder and he’s not much of dealmaker and he certainly isn’t very good at making expenses line up with income. But he is a marketing genius. He must have seen an empty market niche that no one but him filled.
I am quite surprised, that with all my work, and some of it is very, very good, that nobody talks about The Miracle Worker. We’re talking about Mrs. Robinson. I understand the world… I’m just a little dismayed that people aren’t beyond it yet.
Anybody who watched football last year knows they’re good. But that represents a very good opportunity for us. It really does. I think somehow, if we’re able to pull that off, I think it will go a long way for our confidence. I look at it as a great opportunity, and hopefully we’ll be at our best when we get there.
Night is a very good and very close friend of a writer!
And so you ask a very good question. Why go on? Why even start off on such a path? What is to be gained from embarking on such a journey? Where is the incentive? What is the reason? The reason is ridiculously simple. There is nothing else to do.
Ist es an und fu? r sich absurd, das Nichtsein fu? r einUbel zu ? halten; da jedes Ubel wie jedes Gut das Dasein zur Voraussetzung hat, ja sogar das Bewusstsein. It is in and by itself absurd to regard non-existence as an evil; for every evil, like every good, presupposes existence, indeed even consciousness.
A good teacher is one who can understand those who are not very good at explaining, and explain to those who are not very good at understanding.
Although I write screenplays, I don’t think I’m a very good writer. I’m very interested in studying cultures and social issues, but as an academic I don’t think I would have been too successful.
I think in terms of educating a group of readers, MFA programs are very good. I just think the model of MFA programs in which a young poet goes through the program, publishes a series of books, gets teaching jobs, that’s a bit at risk.
I wasn’t good at examinations, but I went to a very good secondary school – Bolton-on-Dearne – with wonderful teachers, who taught me drama and encouraged me in every way.
Not yet, when I’m gone I’ll be a legend, right now I’m just very good at what I do.
God gave me a very good hand to play over my 88 years. I have no regrets.
Attribute to God every good that you have received. If you take credit for something that does not belong to you, you will be guilty of theft.
We have very stable mechanisms of conflict resolution in terms of labor relations, we have a very good transportation infrastructure, we provide our children with an excellent education and the gap between rich and poor in Germany is relatively narrow. On the other hand, we have trouble accepting change.
Everyone has someone they looked up to. Mine was Mickey Mantle. For Alex Rodriguez to idolize me coming up, that makes me feel very good.
I’m not very good on timing. In fact, I’ve stayed away from it.
When I was 17, I signed my record deal and passed my driver’s test. It was a very good year!
We both [with Alixandra Kolesky MacKenzie] got into ceramics, you might say, by the back door. Looking back on it, I think this was a very good thing.
It is a very good exercise, at least from a historian’s point of view, to imagine oneself a devout pagan while reading various Christian writings.
I’m all alone. There has been no man in my life for several months now and although it would be nice to have a boyfriend, I can’t just settle for anybody. The fact is I’m choosy, but mainly about a man’s character. He has to be interesting, funny and clever. I don’t even mind if he’s not very good-looking.
To every good friend I send my greet feet; addio nitwit. Love true true true until the grave, if I live that long and do behave.
There is a certain virtue in every good man, which night and day stirs up the mind with the stimulus of glory, and reminds it that all mention of our name will not cease at the same time with our lives, but that our fame will endure to all posterity.
Nobody wanted me. I just kept writing books and learning my craft. Most writers aren’t very good in the beginning.
I’m very good at forgetting people.
It is a sign of the times, and not a very good sign, that these days it is necessary – and not only necessary but urgent – to interest minds in the fate of Mind, that is to say, in their own fate.
Every good servant does not all commands.
Although I felt I was quite good at criticising a philosophical position, I was not very good at defending and making a case for a philosophical position.
I can well imagine that certain writers, even writers that we’d consider today very great writers, may not necessarily have tested highly on IQ just because of their numerical skills, or maybe they may not be very good at memory, and are not particularly good at these kinds of tests.
I have an inferiority complex, but itвЂ™s not a very good one.
You don’t want to be hard to look at. Plain very good, hard to look at bad. The plain shall inherit the earth; time is our friend.
I was very excited to hone in on John Goodman. Casting John first really set the tone. He’s very good at being terrifying and being hilarious, and I loved the idea of that character not being merely ‘moustache-twirly’. I enjoyed being scared by him.
Money is power. Every good man and woman ought to strive for power, to do good with it when obtained. I say, get rich, get rich!
Examining the actual contents of my crying, I found a quailing sludge emotion, with a foul insecticide taste. If it was a peanut, you would spit it out. Yet I was indulging this toxic goo, giving it its head and letting it dictate my actions. People had every good reason to despise me.
I need to be in a stable environment right now in my career. What I mean by that is a place where I can play and not have too much pressure on me and a place I can develop. Monaco wanted me and did whatever they could to get me so I feel very very good about that.
Don’t be a hero. Don’t have an ego. Always question yourself and your ability. Don’t ever feel that you are very good. The second you do, you are dead.
It’s more important for a photographer to have very good shoes, than to have a very good camera
The United States has done some very good things in the world, and that does not change the fact that the World Court was quite correct in condemning the United States as an international terrorist state.
I know the president is quick. I have friends who played with him during the campaign; they say he’s very good. I told the president that whenever the next pickup game is, I’ll get on the plane to Washington – but sometimes they play so early in the morning.
To wear your heart on your sleeve isn’t a very good plan; you should wear it inside, where it functions best.
[Fidel Castro] has a very good [human rights] record.
Disney is just Disney. It’s a company that’s very good at what it does – controlling and promoting an image – until something happens that it can’t control or cover up.
The money thing is, the sort of Elvis Presley thing of buying you mother car is great, that’s very good. My mother has learned how to spend money.
Variety is very, very good. Going from medium to medium, if you get the chance to do it, from theater to television to film, which are all distinctly different, keeps me sharp.
There are certain actors who are very good at improvising, like Dustin Hoffman and Glenda Jackson.
Nothing. My father is very good at doing nothing. He calls it thinking.
We forget that every good that is worth possessing must be paid for in strokes of daily effort.
Truth is the beginning of every good to the gods, and of every good to man.
WhereвЂ™s your sketch pad?вЂќ I asked. вЂ¦ вЂњI gave that up,вЂќ Kay said. вЂњI wasnвЂ™t very good, so I changed my major.вЂќ вЂњTo what?вЂќ вЂњTo pre-med, then psychology, then English lit, then history.вЂќ вЂњI like a woman who knows what she wants.вЂќ Kay smiled. вЂњSo do I, but I donвЂ™t know any.
There are different ways to organise capitalism. Free-market capitalism is only one of them-and not a very good one at that.
What you say about this world I do not quite agree with; I think it a very good world, and only requires a person to be reasonable in his expectations, and not to trust too much to others.
Going to school and working for good marks, indeed working for very good marks, was a serious business.
“Self-taught, are you?” Julian Castle asked Newt. “Isn’t everybody?” Newt inquired. “Very good answer.” Castle was respectful.
The inner cry is a very good way to meditate. As you’re sitting there in meditation, just cry inwardly to God, to that source, to your spiritual teacher or to a particular god or goddess.
I think we filmed a lot of the recording and it would be nice to do something with it but you know, videos are tricky because we know how to make albums but I’m not very good at video editing .
I tried ice-skating and wasn’t very good at it.
In terms of effect on the world, it’s very good that I’ve lived. And so I guess, if I could go back in time and prevent my birth, I wouldn’t do it. But I sure wish I hadn’t had so much pain.
But you will admit that it’s a good thing to be alive.
The writers are very good about misdirection and changeups, and that’s what’s great about it. We always think we know what’s going to happen and then they throw a curveball that you don’t see coming.
Business is like sex. When it’s good, it’s very, very good; when it’s not so good, it’s still good.
I don’t cook, I can’t cook, and it is really abominable to see me in the kitchen. I order in takeaway food or get my friends to cook because a lot of them are very good.
We had a very good number of mayors participate this year. All the mayors rode out with regular volunteers as well as members of our advisory council and our board members.
Let there be no mistake, Sen Sanders, his campaign and the vigorous debate that we’ve had about how to raise incomes, how to reduce inequality, increase upward mobility, has been very good for the Democratic Party and for America.
I think a lot of that album [“Tonight” ] is still very good . . . the songs, but I think I was indifferent to the arrangements.
It’s turned into a world of amateurs. There are amateur actors making millions of dollars, amateur cinematographers, amateur directors… Jesus, these amateur directors can get deals for anything. Another comic book? Oh, very good.
There are three very good reasons to travel: 1. See the world. 2. Meet new people. 3. Room service.
Football is about joy. It’s about dribbling. I favour every idea that makes the game beautiful. Every good idea has to last.
My sisters have been baptized and my dad is a deacon at his church now. Sadly my mother passed away but what I can say is that the Jehovah Witnesses took very good care of her up until she died.
If I know you’re very good in music, I can predict with just about zero accuracy whether you’re going to be good or bad in other things.
I have a very good life, a high quality of life. I have both money and time. No one has that.
I had a Super Grover doll growing up. Super Grover was very clumsy, he wasn’t very good-looking. But in his own way he’d always save the day.
Love is the tact of every good,
The only warmth, the only peace.
The only warmth, the only peace.
The reality is we are 0-3. The reality is that we can still be a very good football team. We need to show that on Monday night.
I’m lucky to have very good genes. My mother was so tiny she was almost bird-like, and my father was tall and lean. Both lived until their early 80s.
No matter what happens, I feel very good about the future.
I am not a socialite, though I seem to have got the reputation for being one. I have some very good friends who happen to be in so-called Society; but Society as such is a bore and holds no fascination for me.
It does look like a very good exercise. But what is the little white ball for?
I think the main figure that matters to all of us, including people in the media, is: How does GDP per capita grow? And those figures have been very good. There is a huge flux both up and down, so it isn’t like we’re all static in status. What’s important is that pie grows.
Every good army needs a couple of criminals.
That’s a very good way to learn the craft of writing – from reading.
And when you’re alone there’s a very good chance you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants There are some, down the road between hither and yon, that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.
For example, Americans seem reluctant to take on Shakespeare because you don’t think you’re very good at it – which is rubbish. You’re missing out here.
And they’re also very good at math, these super boogers, and so they teach Billy the ways of mathematics.
