U.S. Speedskating has been riddled with problems since when I started my career, and we were always able to look past that. When it came down to performing on the ice, regardless of funding issues, we were always able to make it happen. And that’s what it’s all about.

There’s not really a choice about, am I going to pursue a typical career? Because I’m not the typical standard, so that’s not even an option.
I don’t pass judgment on anybody, but personally, I prefer a more natural look. I think it’s helping my longevity in my career because I’m playing my age.
Everybody perceives me because of my career that I’m a movie star, or I’m this model, but I’m still the same person I was when I was a little girl.

A lot of people write books not at the end of their career. Why you gotta wait until then? When you’re momentum’s going, that’s when people really want to get to know about you.
I was looking at making a shift in my career. I’ve been so blessed I’d like to be able to give that back. If I could find young artists, young performers I can nurture to have a career I would really like that.
Whatever happens with my career, I’m going to prosper no matter what.
Everything I’ve ever done in my whole career, people might not know, I’ve never written anything down on paper.
Over my career, I’ve had to adjust my game.
I’ve played for the Miami Heat my whole career under Pat Riley. Mr. GQ himself. So when I pick out my outfits before a game, I’m already feeling confident. And some of that swagger stays with me when I take the court.
I got typecast early in my career as the guy who is very intense. Once you get into a certain mold, people see you that way, as much as it’s disproved time and again.
I have never been one of those actors who say, ‘Oh, my character wouldn’t do this,’ or ‘My character never wears an orange shirt,’ or any of the number of inane things I’ve heard on movie sets throughout my career.

If you don’t see something as a career but as an important part of your life, you don’t know how you’re going to feel about it.
To Die For,’ with Nicole Kidman, is great – her desire to be a part of news, how she uses news to further her career and how it can drive you insane. I love that movie.
My screenwriting credits in my career are probably not dissimilar to some other ones in the sense that a lot of the scripts you write don’t get made, and the ones that do get made are certainly – as a writer, they’re not your vision.
I want to know what it’s like to play in a Super Bowl and win one. My career will be great without it. But, personally, selfishly, I want to know what it feels like.

I went out there, and I fought Anderson Silva, and you know what? I got a big W, and that’s massive for my career going forward.
My resume, my career, and my legacy in this sport means more to me then collecting some checks.

Playing Bill Clinton is really, probably, the scariest time of my career.
I was a guy back in the Eighties who was one movie away from a huge career, which at that time didn’t happen. In the Nineties, I worked a lot, but it was kind of, ‘Get out there and dig and find things.’ Then I guess ‘The Rookie’ and ‘Far From Heaven’ were referred to as my comeback.
I’m definitely not satisfied about my career. I don’t know how you can be, it’s the very nature of things.
Obviously, the person who had most influence on my career was Ken Thompson.
If you get to the point in your career where you’re running with a gun – I’ve yet to run with a gun. I’ve stood still with a gun, and I’ve walked with a gun, but I’ve never run with a gun. Running with a gun, to me, that’s when you know you’ve really made it.
I’ve built a career in Asia for 18 years, playing roles that had nothing to do with my race because everybody’s Chinese in the films.
I’ve been lucky enough to build a career outside of America, where I got 18 years and over 60 films of experience.
The notion of being on a cop show was appealing, just because it’s one of those tick boxes in a career.
I had a kind of meandering little career, and then I was given a chance to play one of the bottom six in The Dirty Dozen.

If I am treated fairly, I like to do things in a fair manner. That is the way I have been all my career. I haven’t tried to do things in an underhanded way.
I suppose ‘Worried About the Boy’ was a brave choice, but only in the sense that if I didn’t get it right, my career would be over before it had begun.

I mean, ‘Kids In The Hall’ is the reason I have any career at all.
I started my career wanting to make a ‘James Bond’ movie, and I couldn’t get hired! I made ‘The Bourne Identity,’ and ultimately the impact of that film was that it changed the ‘James Bond’ franchise.
In England, I’ve had a more balanced career directing and acting. It can be quite difficult to juggle the two careers.
I consider myself to be very fortunate in my career, my timing has worked out.
I spent the first part of my career trying to avoid genre because I felt like genre, in some way, was cliche.
I would say that when I came into this chapter of my filmmaking career, starting with ‘The Fighter,’ there was this sense that you have to go from your instincts and you have to go from your gut, and you have to not hesitate and you have to not hedge.
I’m at that point in my career you can put up all the numbers you want to, you can swing whatever statistic you want to swing, but it doesn’t matter if you don’t get to the Super Bowl and win it.
I didn’t have the confidence to leave the band because of a solo career, or anything like that. I just wanted to grow.

When I’m done fighting, I want to look to get some sort of driving career somewhere. My goal is to eventually get into the Mint 400 and do the trophy truck stuff.

And I mean, I’m established. So I’m not worried about having a hit at this point in my career.
If you are succesfull for 20 years, you can’t expect to stay on the same level all through that period. A career has its ups and downs and in-betweens.
I drank beer, and I had a career year.
In my whole career, I’ve never seen this type of race that you had to wait for the last day. There’s so many teams that are involved. You’ve got to smile because we’re in it.

I would be very, very bored doing light little comedies for my entire career.
Star Trek is perhaps the best thing that ever happened to me, in a career sense.

At every stage of my career I have had interesting and cordial colleagues, some of whom are close friends.
My career divides in two: before and after 9/11. In the first part I was trying to show that Islam is relevant to political concerns. If you want to understand Muslims, I argued, you need to understand the role of Islam in their lives. Now that seems obvious.
Nice, the club where I started my career in 1983, want me to see out my playing days there.

I have another aspect of my career where I’m a scholar of Yiddish and Hebrew literature, and I’ll say that when you study Yiddish literature, you know a whole lot about forgotten writers. Most of the books on my shelves were literally saved from the garbage. I am sort of very aware of what it means to be a forgotten artist in that sense.
I suppose it’s the feminist in me, but I didn’t always associate modelling with an intelligent career. I used to put myself down for doing it.

I feel lucky because earlier in my career, I found what I liked to do it’s build software that you see your friends using on the street, and they like it.
My only career strategy is to just not do anything that I have to be completely ashamed of afterwards! Whether it’s TV or movies, I feel lucky to be working.
That first year in Chicago was one of the most memorable in my career. Getting traded rejuvenated me, and I had something to prove. I wanted to show them what I could do.
I’m a complete addict of The ‘X Factor,’ so I can see why everyone gets so inspired. But there’s a downside to celebrity: your life is up for grabs, your career is much more disposable, and you are therefore vulnerable. It’s a high price to pay.
Around New York, our group had become known as ‘Dee Dee and her girls’ because we were used on everything, so going out on a solo career wasn’t as much a big deal to me.
Pretty much from 1979 through 1988, the backbone of my career was the theater. Working on Broadway a couple of times, working off-Broadway, and also doing a lot of regional theater. Make no mistake, I lived very frugally. I had an apartment that was real cheap. I would get two or three jobs per season, and in between I’d be on unemployment.
Trading Places’ did more for my career than anything I’d ever done. It was a zonking great hit, and it was also just a joy to do.

After all, didn’t I blow a magnificent career?
I had a successful career: not necessarily a Hall of Fame career, but a successful one.

You know, punk bands now sell with one record – their first or second record – sell 10 times the amount of records than the Ramones did throughout their career with 20-something records.

I look at careers like Ben Stiller and think that’s a great career to have where you’re doing movies that you write and direct, and also act in films, although he’s primarily an actor.

The elite private tutor is typically ivy-educated and falls into one of two categories – a twenty-something pursuing an artistic career on the side, or someone older who has made a career out of college-prep. They are presentable, well-spoken, and are treated by doormen as guests more than as employees.
I like to think there are a lot of balls in the air, and the kids are not one that I choose to drop. They have been a priority and I have a career that allows for a little more flexibility at times and hours that are quite mom-friendly.
I offer something very different from the lifelong career politicians who have worked their way up to run for higher office or those who can parachute in with checks for $5 million or $10 million, and that seems to be the definition of credible or legitimate. I’m rejecting that premise.

If you look at my CV, just about everything I have done has come through a publicly funded institution it is a career entirely built on that sort of support.
Because it’s difficult to have a career as an artist, and in every situation where it’s difficult to have a career, it’s even harder for women, for all the other reasons that it’s harder in other fiercely contested fields.

In my career quite a few people have tried to force me out, but so far no one has succeeded.
I got snubbed about eight times for the Mid-Summer Classic, and I know what type of career I had, and I know that I’m a true All-Star. The selection process is not very accurate.
Obviously, I’m at the beginning of my career, contrary to what anyone else thinks. I’m 19 years old. In any other country, everywhere else, you’re a prospect. And that’s what I am right now in Europe. I’m a prospect. I’m not a seasoned veteran.
I always feel like I want to do my career my own way. I never follow anybody’s path, what they’ve done.

The combination of pictures and words together can be really effective, and I began to realise in my career that unless I wrote my own words, then my message was diluted.
I have been really lucky in my career, with the diversity of it. I get to play really complex people.
I do not take to the field to defend myself from certain criticisms. If I do, in this kind of career, it is because I’m very self-critical.

I had a career that was very short, but it had a lot of thrills.

If you go all the way back, I’ve always written science-fiction, I’ve always written fantasy, I’ve always written horror stories and monster stories, right from the beginning of my career.

When I started in the mid-’90s, the goal was really to shoot for a film career and stay there.

I can now shed the child-actor thing, like the fat, and start a new career, because no one sees me as Dudley.
I’m a lobbyist and had a career lobbying. The guy who gets elected or the lady who gets elected president of the United States will immediately be lobbying. They would be advocating to the Congress, they’ll be lobbying our allies and our adversaries overseas. They’ll be asking the business community and labor unions.
Early in my career, my 3-, 5- and 9-irons performed differently than my other irons. But I adapted and made them work.

I went up to the top of the career ladder and I came down again, I am past all that.
Fortunately my career has never been about how I look, it’s about how I can be.

In 2008, Putin’s message was, ‘We aren’t like a Central Asian republic, we aren’t going to build a personalistic regime, we will have institutions.’ This is all abolished now. The very idea of a governing party and party career, as you have in China, that didn’t work.
Most of the early part of an actor’s career, you do the jobs you get.
I always say that in my career as an actress, I’ve always worked with people like David Lynch or Guy Maddin or Peter Weir who are considered not mainstream directors and that could be because they are like my dad. They are pioneers, and pioneers, by definition, invent something new.
After being on ‘Oprah’ for a couple of months, I got my first royalty check for $1,478,392.17. I will never forget it. At the height of my career, I made $3.3 million. Unbelievable. From welfare in the projects to $3.3 million.
Medicine was certainly intended to be a career. I wanted to become a psychiatrist, an adolescent ambition which, of course, is fulfilled by many psychiatrists.
Well, the biggest rival I had in my career was me.
The biggest rival I had in my career was me. I couldn’t control Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Tom Watson or Lee Trevino. The only person I could control was me.
I learned early in my career, where you get so wrapped up and so excited, that all of a sudden you don’t think. So I worked very hard to keep myself suppressed. And that’s one of the reasons I wasn’t gregarious with the gallery.
A few of the influences on my career so far have been Isamu Noguchi, Irving Penn, and seeing the riots of 1968 in Paris.
I’ve arrived at the place if I’m not taking a career risk, I’m not happy. If I’m scared, then I know I’m being challenged.
I could never be a career politician, because I believe in telling the truth.
The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is not disarming them. The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is to arrest, prosecute, convict and jail criminal offenders, especially armed career criminals illegally using guns. This is the way to reduce gun violence.
Right now in my career, it’s like I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had, so it’s kind of like, ‘Man, I can’t stop now.’
Dick Gregory was a great comedian who went and got arrested, did hunger strikes, protests. It never hurt his career to be outspoken.
When you snatch little pieces of other people’s lives and try to palm them off as your own, that’s more disgusting than anything. Robin Williams is a huge thief. Denis Leary is a huge thief. His whole stand-up career is based on Bill Hicks, a brilliant guy who died years ago.
I’ve always been a fan of Derek Jeter. Guys that consistently, throughout a long-term career, that not only have success but are very aware of their situation – I really dig that.
I was the guy who had been bouncing around the film industry for years, and I’d been lucky if five or 10 people would see my movies, so Captain Jack did a big flip for my career.
Prior to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ – the first one in 2003 – I had been essentially known within the confines of Hollywood as box office poison, you know what I’m saying? You know, I basically had built a career on 20 years of failures.
I want to look back on my career and be proud of the work, and be proud that I tried everything.
I’m concentrating on my career, which is my top priority. The rest will follow eventually.
In essence, I owe my career to Garry Marshall. There was no known reason for him to hire me for ‘Pretty Woman.’
I love singing, and I came to absolutely adore it in the later part of my career.
If everybody loves you, you must be doing something wrong. It means there’s no button being pushed… The only way that everybody loves you is toward the end of your career.
When I was younger, I thought maybe one day I’d be involved in sport in terms of career.
If the career you have chosen has some unexpected inconvenience, console yourself by reflecting that no career is without them.
If I could really move my career much more into predominantly directing, I would jump at that.
What I’ve learned in my career is that it takes the same amount of effort to build a $10bn company as it does a $1bn company you as the entrepreneur are going to put your entire life, your entire effort into it.
When I get to 40, I’m going to re-evaluate everything and then go from there. Because when I get to 40, I would like to see where I’m at in my career because I might want to go, ‘You know what, I’m done. I’m just happy with everything,’ and I’m going to go off my merry way, and I’ll probably never pick up a golf club ever again.
The biggest thing is, if you want it still, you’ll do everything you need to do to make sure you extend your career.
I started to develop my comedy skills when I became resident singer at the Boggery Folk Club in Solihull. My career blossomed from there, and I became a big draw on the folk-club circuit.
Touring has been a major part of my career. I’ve done a lot of huge shows, including a 13-night sell-out stint at the Indoor Arena in Birmingham, playing to a total audience of 65,000.
There are two ways to look at my publishing career. One is that I’m a novelist churning out books, who is eight into a series the other way is that I’m a cartoonist, just starting out. Most cartoonists have long careers: Charles Schulz drew Peanuts for 50 years.
It was so quick for me on ‘SNL.’ It’s not something I consider to be, like, one of the big spaces in my career.
It is unrealistic to expect an entire profession to be completely good. There are bound to be some individuals who are stressed, who are unkind, who are a bit rubbish at their job, who are in the wrong career.
I’ve never been interested enough to have a career trajectory. I’ve never had any ambition or thought of what I should be doing or had any idea of what I’d like to do. Never. And still don’t. And if something comes along, I say ‘Fine.’
I was never the ingenue or the pretty girlfriend of Tom Cruise in a movie. I didn’t have that career, so I don’t have to compete on that level.
One wrong move, and you destroy your career.
I very much enjoyed my career in science. I didn’t leave science because I was disillusioned, but felt I’d done my bit for it after about twenty-five years.
I wouldn’t trade my career with anybody’s. I’d trade a few movies with Tom Hanks – ‘Apollo 13’ and ‘Forrest Gump’ – but other than that, I love my career.
I think, for sure, ‘Saturday Night Fever’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’ were kind of bookends for – or the pillars of – my career.
I’ve always had a loud mouth, and for that I’ve gotten a lot of attention. I did falter in some big competitions in my career, but being counted out and not being seen as a threat is something I’m used to.
Really, you want to have variety as an actor. If you spend your career doing one thing solidly, people get burned out.
Fortunately, for the first 20 years in my career, I didn’t have any other responsibilities outside of myself. I didn’t have a wife and kids, so I could afford to sort of barely scrape by, to do theater.
I never had intention of coming to New York or L.A. and actually doing more than scraping by – you know, doing plays. And as my career sort of progressed of its own volition, I did come to New York.
What a turnaround in sentiment ‘Glee’ exemplifies. It was only a few years ago that pursuing the dream of a Broadway career or cabaret stardom relegated some poor yearning dope to a lavender ghetto of losers, self-deluders, and social rejects.
When the ‘Guardian’ is commissioning writers to write obituary pieces about you and your career… it doesn’t get much nastier than that. And you’ve just got to go, ‘It doesn’t actually matter.’
Actually, the books were never a planned career path.
I think a little tidbit I can give you is that I grew up with basically everything handed to me, except for my career. I worked for that.
If I’m enjoying something, I’d like to be able to just have it all. Frankly, that’s the way I’m approaching my career now. I’m a total workaholic.
I wanted to be Dustin Hoffman or Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. I thought I was going to be a dramatic actor, but comedy sort of started out first, and I was like, ‘Maybe I’ll find some more drama later on in my career.’
Ideally, that’s what you’ve got in an acting career is an equal number of dramas and comedies and an equal number of small films and big films.
When I wrestled Randy Orton, that was probably the biggest match of my career at that point, because that was when I had the other shot at the WWE championship.
Whether I ever become WWE champion in my career, I’m proud of what I’ve done.
I don’t play video games because I know that if I ever started, I’d never be able to maintain a career again.
I hated to miss games… at the height of my career, I missed a lot of games due to… just a hamstring pull. And I hated sitting out. I just hated it. You play for your team, but you also play for the people who attend the games.
Yves Saint Laurent was my first fashion show. I wore his tuxedo. And Helmut Newton was my first photographer, in 1973. I was really very lucky. I had an amazing career.
What happens to George Clooney and Bruce Willis is great, but I can’t gauge my career by anyone else’s.
Doing a truncated series is like doing a long movie, which allows for a certain artistic freedom. After just 12 episodes, you can take a breather and do other things for your career.
I’ve followed Gary Oldman his whole career… I’ve watched the movies he’s directed, like ‘Nil by Mouth’ – I’ve seen that five times!
I don’t deliberately go into comedy or go into indies, but I do deliberately try to keep changing tact, because I think that is the key to longevity in a career.
In my private sector career, two of my favorite sayings were, ‘Strategy is easy and execution is really hard,’ and that we should ‘run at criticism.’
How my film career happened, I don’t know. It was unplanned. I’d been in films and TV throughout the Sixties and early Seventies, but it was really ‘The Naked Civil Servant’ in 1975 that put me on the radar.
Early in my career, I wasn’t good in the strike zone early. I was good in the strike zone late, which is not a good thing.
What I did before in my career you can pretty much throw out the window. Out of sight, out of mind.
I hope to have a long career, and I don’t want to be defined by things that aren’t the music.
My dad was a Navy munitions officer, and by the end of his career, he was a specialist in nuclear weapons.
I lived my twenties on the road, in all different countries experiencing this momentum of a career which was taking off in its own way.
At no point was my career under threat, so I always knew that I would get back into action.
I am an Asian designer. I was born in Taiwan. That is who I am. But I am a designer, like any designer of any race. Growing up in the ’80s in Taiwan, the arts were not considered a career.
I wanted to be a vet when I was little, so it never really dawned on me that acting was my career, it sort of chose me more than I chose it.
My career as a magazine writer was largely prefaced on the idea of curiosity, to go on adventures and weasel my way into the lives of people that I admire.
I never really considered acting as a career. I kind of fell into it. Originally, I wanted to be a painter.
It is a career of make-believe, of masks. We all have masks in life.
Choosing writing as a career, just by itself, is a measure of not being a calculating person.
For the first six months of my stand-up career, I was talking like Danny Dyer. I was doing a lot of ‘alright guvnors?’ It wasn’t true to who I was.
Anytime you put your name on a ticket with nothing else attached to it, that’s the true testament to where you are in your career – how many tickets are sold.
I won’t mention names, but in my career, the most talented people invariably are the easiest and nicest to get along with.
If I had my career over again? Maybe I’d say to myself, speed it up a little.
Dr. Quinn’ came along when I turned 40, so my career actually peaked then.
You always want to get better, and I think that will remain true for the rest of my career.
Especially those first few years of my comic book career, I had no idea what was going to happen the next day.
Over the course of my entire Wolverine career, I went from being a single guy to getting married and having kids, and I think you can see that progression in the way that I treated Wolverine.
As a professional athlete, the small print says there could be a trade at some point in your career. Sometimes expected, sometimes not. You have to be able to handle that.
I think everyone at some point in their career would like the opportunity to go back to their alma mater, but from a timing standpoint, it’s just never worked.
Writing was something I always liked, but it wasn’t a career until I was laid off from my executive position in my 30s. I started a website because I was bored, unemployed and angry.
You’re always thinking, What’s the next move – the career, the money.
Might I be ridiculous? Might my career in music be laughable? Yeah, that’s possible, but that’s certainly not my intention.
The effect of prizes on one’s career – if that is what to call it – is considerable, since they give one more clout with publishers and more notoriety among journalists. The effect on one’s writing, however, is nil – otherwise, one would be in deep trouble.
For a century longer, Rome still retains its outward form, but the swarming nations are now in full career.
Throughout my career, I had the great fortune to experience firsthand as well as to witness what it means to be a CIA officer.
The word ‘career’ and ‘actor’ really don’t fit in the same paragraph, let alone sentence. There is no career structure for actors.
These individuals on steroids, does it enhance their career, does it give them a little more strength, a little more stamina, a little more psychological edge? Absolutely. How do you determine what – what their stats would be without steroids? It’s impossible to tell.
What I’ve learned in my career as an actor is that you’re only as good as your collaborators. The process is many things, but it is wholly collaborative, particularly with something like ‘Westworld,’ which is a 10-episode-per-season gig, and we’re just now on the 7th episode.
I have always been small and one of the smallest heptathletes out there. And earlier in my career, I was faced with coaches and athletes who felt I was too small to be a multi-eventer. It gives you a push to show you can do it.
Having so many close calls in my career, it was such an awesome feeling to get that first world title.
You want the best for your kid, but everybody’s career is completely different in this industry.
Career Education is one of the largest global providers in the higher education sector. We are projecting to be over $1.1 billion in revenue in 2003, which puts us number one in our sector for onsite education and number two for online education in terms of revenue.
It was an odd coincidence that my career took off the same decade as having babies. I often wished it had been different, that I had my big career bump in my thirties and my babies in my forties or vice versa.
I think to just single out a highlight of Elvis’s career is pretty much impossible. As far as being a fan of his, a lifetime fan, there were just too many highlights.
Mad Men’ is a hard act to follow. Unless you’re called Elisabeth Moss, stuff like this only comes along once in your career.
We’ve been following Judge Alito’s career over the last 15 years, while he’s been on the Court of Appeals.
My personal life is awesome, but there’s always more to strive for in my career.
I have worked hard in my career, but I have been lucky as well.
I wanted to have a go at a pop career. My first single, ‘Baby I Don’t Care’, was a hit, and the second, ‘Bye Bye Boy’, reached the Top 20.
As someone who has spent a lot of her career as an investigative reporter, I’ll confess that a frustration of mine has always been that so much investigative journalism involves a dissection of events in the past.
I was hoping for it to be possibly a movie career as I still would like to see that happen. I enjoyed making 200 Motels and did try out for a few things when I lived in LA, but nothing ever happened. I’m still hoping though.
I had pretty much raised my kids and my first wife and I were divorced, so I began, in earnest, to start my musical career again. Going for the big record deal and all of that.
I want to make movies, TV series, wherever the career takes me.
When I came into baseball, I had one goal for my career – the Hall of Fame.
I was lucky to book a show pretty quickly after getting to L.A., but I struggled getting started in Vancouver. If I had gotten those earlier roles in Vancouver, I wouldn’t have gone to L.A. to get the show that launched my career.
When I was commissioned in the Air Force, I was committed to the institution for a career.
And my career, the things that have happened have happened because of my music education background.
I studied economics and made it my career for two reasons. The subject was and is intellectually fascinating and challenging, particularly to someone with taste and talent for theoretical reasoning and quantitative analysis.
I worked in a record store, but I realised I didn’t want that. I still wanted to pursue a career – or a life – that my songs provided for me.
I remember watching the 2000 Sydney Olympics, with my nose right up to the screen, knowing there and then that I wanted a sporting career.
I went to a seminar early in my career on the craft of storytelling by Robert McKee. It was really life altering. There are basic principles on how to craft an engaging story and he covers them well. He’s got a book out, ‘Story,’ that I would highly recommend to anyone interested in improve their storytelling.
I want to have a lengthy career. I want to play interesting characters. I want to tell beautiful stories, complex stories, deep stories.
The beginning of my acting career was in London, England.
With my career, considering my age and how much time I’ve been out… how much time I’ve got left, nobody knows.
I’d started working when I was 21 and had been very determined about my career, very focused, even as a little kid, so it was something I had been working at for a long time.
I’d retired for about six or seven years. Coming back to the business, I found that I was sort of not quite a has-been, and it wasn’t a new career, it was just kind of difficult to crack the nut, so to speak.
When you get to the 35-year mark in your career, you make albums for your fans to love you more, so they don’t forget about you.
When I look back at my career as an author, I don’t look at the first book that was ever published as to where my career began – I look to the first book that I ever wrote.
It sucks to be the runner-up because I’ve been the runner-up for a long time in my career. I would get so close and then lose a huge movie and sometimes it’s one kid who beats you out for three different movies. It’s so frustrating at the time, but what’s so great is the lesson you take from that, which is, ‘I’ve got to get better.’
I had a good theater career for years. I played Hamlet when I was 22, and I’ve played some really great roles.
It’s not like a corporate job where the more you accumulate on your resume and the more hours you put in, the higher up you get it’s simply not the case. That being said, if I had known that and known what kind of career I’d get into, I still would have pursued it.
In a career, when you hit 40 and you’ve done a lot of this and that, you want to try some new things. I feel like that as a director, too, from one film to the other.
I really want to make this the last stop of my career. I don’t want to be a vagabond, so to speak, and be traveling from team to team, year in and year out. I’m not that type of guy. I like to be settled.
I guess, as a conductor, one goes in and out of fashion. Your career starts with a bang, everyone thinks you’re wonderful, and then with middle age, something happens and you go into the wilderness.
Chris Boardman was my first teammate and my first roommate. I saw him finish his career with an hour record and thought, ‘Yeh, what a way to go out!’
I have enough drama in my career, and then always playing dramatic roles and storylines… I like to lead a very low profile.
I got my degree in theatre at a little school in Pennsylvania, Bloomsburg University. It was one of those situations where I went into the major because I loved it, but didn’t really expect to see it as a moneymaking situation or career.
I’ve had a blessed career, and that has been acknowledged in many ways over the years.
I spent the bulk of my career on building my company, and Morningstar is where the passion is.
If there’s no craft there, then once the looks go, there goes your career.
My goal and my career is definitely not to be famous. That’s a really horrible goal, just to be famous for the sake of having fame.

In my career, my movies tend to polarize critics.
If 50 percent of your career is not filled with failure, you’re not really successful.
The thing early on that you think is ‘wrong’ with you, that makes you not fit in with everyone else, becomes the key to your career as an actor. Start embracing it.
I spent my whole career in the technology business, and I was convinced of the importance, at a grand scale, of the development of global connectivity.
Right, well I am, I was a career diplomat for 37 years from 1960 until 1997 during the early 1980s from 1981 to 1985 I was the United States Ambassador to Honduras.
As I get older, I plan less, and I strategize less about my career and about things because you realize things happen as they’re supposed to happen and the way they’re supposed to happen.
As a director, there’s no natural career progression. So after ‘The Wackness,’ which was very personal to me, I was very, very picky about what I was going to do next, to the point where I think that I was almost too picky.
I did come to L.A. to try to get on TV and get in front of a camera, so I could have a stage career in New York.
I think I’m always conscious of not letting things fit into a specific box. Being a filmmaker and trying to chart a career, you never want anyone to be able to pigeonhole you into one specific thing.
When I began my career, I was constantly referred to as the kid who could play the blues.
I started my career as an urban planner, working for the city, doing what I would call ‘do-gooder’ things, particularly for low-income neighborhoods.
I never considered a career in broadcasting, not even as a kid.
I love making movies, but I was ready to rationalize being only a mother if my career never got back on track.
I did a lot of musicals when I first started my career, so I can carry a tune well.
Those who joined us for selfish personal reasons, for a career or other motives will be the ones to leave.
I had always attended classes and written stories as a creative outlet because I need that, and I thought, in my previous career in a model, the way I approached that was that I believed I was telling a non-verbal story.
My career has had a lot of ups and downs, but basically it has been wonderful.
When I signed up for Y&R, my actor friends said, ‘A daytime soap? It’ll kill your career!’ Now they’d trade places with me in a heartbeat.
I’ve kind of had to make a career of playing villains. In order to stay employed, I had to figure out how to play bad guys.
Early in my career, I wanted to be a mathematician.
I don’t think I could have ever had a career as a pianist because I never ever wanted to play the notes the way they were written, I was too sloppy to learn them quite right.
For me, the most interesting thing is longevity and sustaining a career, because that’s what’s truly difficult.
Well, it’s been an interesting career. Since I last appeared on ‘Top Of The Pops,’ I’ve been doing about 150 live shows every year. The live shows have always been well received and they consistently worked, it’s just the records that haven’t been very good.
I went through a really low period about 13 years ago, when all aspects of my career and everything went completely wrong.
For actors, when you first get the project and you see that it’s a Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman-produced project, right away, from an acting standpoint, you go, ‘Wow. That’d be great to be part of that. What a career move that’d be.’
I think all players reach a point in their career where it’s natural to lose some of that hunger, that desire, to sort of break out or be a star.
As a bureaucracy becomes more established, it develops its own career structure. It is less dependent, and should be less dependent, on individual personalities. Absolutely no one is indispensable.
Any first lady can do whatever they want to do. In this country, people expect them to work on whatever they want or to have a career of their own.
Starting my career as a kid, I was doing what jobs I got.
I have never been someone who applied ‘work begets work’ to my career, sometimes unfortunately.
I think there are ways to get so caught up in your career and being so heavy and dramatic, and everyone wants to be a tortured genius.
I think that once you’ve had a few No. 1s in your career that you’ve kind of proven yourself, and I don’t feel the need to prove anything anymore.
Madonna and I are very different. Just saying. We’re very different. I wouldn’t make that comparison at all, and I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna: she’s a nice lady, and she’s had a fantastic, huge career – biggest pop star of all time.
When you are working really hard and you’re really focused on your career, a lot of other things suffer.
There were times, sure, I wanted my career to go better. But once it starts to go downhill, you can never get back, or only to some degree.
Music is the career I’m lucky enough to get paid for, but I have other desires and passions.
At my age, no one is married, no one has kids, no one has a career.
I started to make some commercials, which was a way for me to finally make a living at last. But it was only really a couple of films in that it looked like a viable career option.
When I’m boxing, if my career isn’t going well, at least I feel mentally and physically strong.
I had great teachers, great ensembles, and great companies to work with who supported my career.
I did get to work with Anthony Hopkins on ‘The Human Stain.’ If I ever manage to accomplish a quarter of what he’s achieved, I’ll have had one hell of a career.
When I look back on my career, I go, ‘This is really great, I’ve played so many different women.’
I’ve been so blessed to have my career gradually get bigger and bigger, so I’ve been able to absorb stuff and take stuff gradually.
I’ve dabbled in period films in my career, and I’ve enjoyed each one.
Actually, 19 is in charge of our career at that point. FOX publicity is in charge of the publicity that we get. I’m fine with it, it is really organized.
