When I was 8 or 9, I started using bulletin board systems, which was the precursor to the Internet, where you’d dial into… a shared system and shared computers.

Feeling I’d scarcely arrived at a style, I now find I’m near the end of it. I’m not quite sure what Late Style means except that it’s some sort of licence, a permit for ageing practitioners to kick their heels up.
The pressures to get the story first, if wrong, are greater sometimes than the pressures to get the story right, if late.

If you look at that incredible burst of fantastic characters that emerged in the late 19th century/early 20th century, you can see so many of the fears and hopes of those times embedded in those characters.

I can design a collection in a day and I always do, cause I’ve always got a load of Italians on my back, moaning that it’s late.

McDonalds used to be my favorite place to eat, until my metabolism changed in my late 30s. Before that, I would have no hesitation about walking into McDonalds and getting two cheeseburgers and fries and enjoying every last bite.
I first got to know Charles in the late seventies when I wrote an article and then a book about him and I think at the time he came across as quite appealing, it was probably the height of his popularity.
I’ve always loved ‘lived-in’ sci-fi. We take it for granted now, but it was a revelation in the late ’70s – ’80s, when movies like ‘Alien’, ‘Escape From New York’, and even ‘Star Wars’ introduced us to the idea that the future could, in fact, look old.
In the years between 2000 and 2004, I always got the feeling that people were just starting to hear about me, and they were all late to the game. I’d be out playing shows for records that I recorded back in 1999 that were just coming out.
To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career. I probably realized that too late – not that it would’ve affected my decisions in terms of who I dated, but it would’ve affected my decision to appear on the show.
We are quite different: I’m relaxed, and I get ready for races really late, whereas Jonny is really organised and punctual. I like to lead from the front in the run, whereas Jonny might hold back. Maybe it’s because I’m the older brother, but I don’t think there is a mental block that stops Jonny doing the same. I just think I’m a bit more gung-ho.
Aung San Suu Kyi’s late husband, Michael Aris, was a good friend of mine at St Antony’s, Oxford. The gentlest of gentle academics, he helped establish a centre in Tibetan studies at Oxford and converted to Buddhism.

One, I push my deadlines closer than anybody else, or let’s say it this way: I’m really late.

In ‘George Lopez’, I played Veronica who’s a bratty 18-year-old, and so I feel like it’s much easier for me to play that because I feel like a late bloomer. It wasn’t difficult or challenging at all because it’s not like I haven’t been a teenager.
I just said, ‘I need to do something because staying up and watching YouTube and late night TV is not cool,’ so I just decided to write a script.
With a lot of those ‘S.N.L.’ shorts, we would do them just as we wanted to do them and then beep out the bad words. Since it was late night T.V., they let us get away with a lot.
England in the late 1940s was famously grim. As I remember it, London back then was a very dirty place, from coal dust and smoke, from the grit stirred up every day by the jackhammers still clearing out rubble from the Blitz.

Lawyers didn’t seriously get involved in the Watergate stories until quite late, when we realized we were on to something.
And, well of course, Count Basie, and I think all of the black bands of the late thirties and early forties, bands with real players. They had an influence on everybody, not just drummers.
I was in my late 20s, in the process of shaping my musical outlook and what I wanted it to be about, when I first encountered Woody Guthrie.

I never wanted to be an actress, really. I sort of caught the bug fairly late. So many people are so intrigued with the glamour and celebrity of acting, and a lot of actors start acting when they are 9 or 10 years old – so young. I started when I was about 24.

I have the luxury of getting up quite late, so I hardly ever set an alarm clock.

I’m absolutely strict about it. When I land, I put my watch right, and I don’t care what I feel like, I will go to bed at half past eleven. If that means going to bed early or late, that’s what I live by. As soon as you get there, live by that time.
In my late teenage years, I developed a real passion for it, and wrote a lot of poetry.

It’s not too late, I can still live my dreams.
I’ve done that I was touring a couple of years ago with R. Kelly and the Lillith Fair, I would do the late night underground gigs as well because it’s always around those times that there was a hot song, either on the radio or in the clubs, it would just be simultaneous.
I came into my teens unaware that most Americans, blacks as well as whites, were ignorant of the main facts of Negro history. And so it was the facts of other histories that I found most intriguing. I fell into a U.S. history major by chance late in my second year at Fisk University.

You can’t reinvent the wheel. I remember when we first started out at ‘Late Night,’ we were trying to hire directors, and this guy was like, ‘I see you behind a glass desk.’ I don’t. And he’s like, ‘Yeah, the glass desk.’ I go, ‘I don’t really see me as a glass desk guy.’
The video for ‘Whatever’ is kind of a documentary in a way. It’s showing that love can last. Not just in your early 20s or your late 30s, but in your 50s, 60s and 70s. There’s an awful myth out there that when you get married, love and lovemaking fade. It’s not true.
When I went to San Francisco in that cold late spring of 1967, I did not even know what I wanted to find out, and so I just stayed around a while and made a few friends.
We need to let the referee’s sole thing be to protect the quarterback and get those late hits out of there. They even have a stat on television that says ‘knockdowns.’ Knockdowns means that you knock him down after he throws the ball. The assumption is, if it’s legal, we’ll make excuses for them.
I always was an early-morning or late-night writer. Early morning was my favorite late night was because you had a deadline. And at four in the morning, you make up some of your most absurd jokes.
You know, I always was an early morning or late night writer. Early morning was my favorite late night was because you had a deadline. And at four in the morning you make up some of your most absurd jokes.
The destructive malware attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) in late 2014 was an unprecedented cyber event for the United States in its scope, destructiveness, and economic implications. The FBI responded to this attack with an investigation that was groundbreaking in its scope and collaboration.
I was a huge Beatles fan. We could talk about who I listened to growing up and what my sources were, but certainly the Beatles were a late, important resource for me, and I just took my guitar and a handful of songs, and I decided, well, I’ll just go over and travel around Europe and see what comes of it.
Robert Louis Stevenson… I’m focusing on the late short stories that I was ignorant of. I always thought he was a boys’ author, but he’s not at all.

As an actor, if I show up late somewhere or I say something that’s eccentric, it’s totally acceptable – not only that, it’s lauded in some perverse way.
Look at timber prices in the late ’90s, at around $50. If you count the true damage of cutting down forests, the resultant flooding, insurance claims, and so on, then the timber price should have been $100.
It’s tough being a dictator, but I’ve always thought it must be tougher being a hanger-on to a dictator. The late nights spent listening to his crazed ranting, the weary rictus grin from smiling at bad jokes, the draining knowledge that one misjudged comment could land you on the chopping block.
Some of the money from the senior players goes to helping out the younger kids. It is from the players’ pool, the fines for being late and so on. Some will go to something like the tsunami appeal and some to helping out young players.

My ambition was to be a record producer, and I had started doing that in the late ’60s with my work with the MC5 and my friend Livingston Taylor.
This flattery has been rather slow in coming. I think all of sudden late in life now I’m getting some credit for what I’ve done. Which is gratifying, but it’s kind of a little late.
I was brought up in the great tradition of the late nineteenth century: that a writer never complains, never explains and never disdains.

I live in Spain. Oscars are something that are on TV Sunday night. Basically, very late at night. You don’t watch, you just read the news after who won or who lost.
Almost as soon as it aired, ‘Late Night’ became one of the most buzzed-about shows on television.
It was a really interesting time in New York in the late 70s and early 80s, and the music scene was really, really interesting because you didn’t have to be a virtuoso to make music, it was more about your desire to express things.
While in my late teens and in my 20s, I worked seven days a week, 20 hours a day. I worked my tail off.
I think Francis at half form is better than anybody else by 50%, you know? I think it’s just that he has never… he has a late pick of the things that are ambitious enough for him.

When the late Bishop was appointed, about thirty-two years ago, to diffuse the light of the Gospel through this extensive portion of His Majesty’s dominions, it was even a greater spiritual, than a natural wilderness.
As a preacher of the Gospel, our late venerable Bishop must have been heard, to form an adequate conception of his superior excellence and commanding eloquence.
In his late quartets, Beethoven introduces an element that shouldn’t be there, that should be left for meditation, though I love them. I can see that through them came Wagner and Mahler and Schoenberg and Berg. And then came Tracey Emin. And I can see it all as one downward path.
I tend to like the last sentence I just wrote, which is: ‘It was late in the fall and the trees lining our driveway had turned red like a row of burning matches.’
I have a hard time waking up. No alarm clock works! It sounds childish, but I seriously have my manager, my mom or a buddy of mine wake me up if I have to be somewhere. It’s a serious issue! I’ve been very late for some serious gigs because of it!

I started when I was 8 years old, which is obviously nowadays pretty late, but I guess in my generation it was all right. I had plenty of other interests and I didn’t do only tennis.

In the late ’70s I started to search for the perfect sound – whatever that might be, before that I was mainly interested in drugs, insanity and the rock’n’roll lifestyle.

I have to tell you, though, the sexism in late night talk is so profound.
Being as versatile as I am, I take offense to the notion that no serious musician would not be doing a late night talk show gig. One has to be open enough in other areas to be able to contribute to a show like this.

Musicians can run this state better than politicians. We won’t get a lot done in the mornings, but we’ll work late and be honest.

It’s never the wrong time to call on Toad. Early or late he’s always the same fellow. Always good-tempered, always glad to see you, always sorry when you go!
Life is insanely robust, though we can make species go extinct, and this is the bad thing. So I always make the point that you can’t say, ‘Is it too late?’ That is the terrible question, because either answer promotes inaction. If it’s too late, you don’t need to act if it’s not too late, you don’t need to act.
I don’t try to get all the meat off the bone. When I get a good figure, I just move something. Too many people try to hit the peak price, and they hold on until it is too late.
When I was a teenager in the late 30’s and early 40’s, electronics wasn’t a word. You were interested in radio if you were interested in electronics.
There was a point in the late ’90s where all the graduating M.B.A.’s wanted to start companies in Silicon Valley, and for the most part they were not actually qualified to do it.

I love that pre-mod jazz look of the late Fifties, the Steve McQueen style that influenced the British modernists.
Hollywood embraced me in the late ’80s because there was a good project I was in and it was different. Nowadays, it’s about corporate mentality, box office, youth.

When I was in college, I wanted to write for ‘Late Night With Conan O’Brien,’ and I was an intern there.
I was very much a late bloomer. That’s not to say that girls didn’t express interest in me from time to time, but I just, I did not know how to respond to that.

When I began modelling in my late teens, I started to earn a lot of money very, very quickly, but I’d never been shown how to manage it properly.

I always lamented that I wasn’t a writer during the late ’60s and the early ’70s, with the New Journalism and Tom Wolfe and Hunter Thompson and all those people.

When I was a boy in the late 1950s, the public library refused to stock books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. They were regarded as vulgar, ill-written potboilers.

It’s an unfortunate situation. After such a great play I felt like I got hit late, no flag, broke my hand. That’s it. That’s pretty much been the story for the past three weeks, and obviously at some point something catastrophic was going to happen, and I broke my hand.
In the central Indian state of Orissa, mining has scarred the landscape, and it is already too late to secure most of the traditional elephant corridors.

People say that I’m always late, but that’s a myth.
The best thing about lying in bed late is that you learn to distinguish between first things and trivia, for whatever presses on you has to prove its importance before it makes you move.
I was involved with Wells Fargo Bank as a consultant in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when I suggested to them that they develop a product that has become known as index funds.
The defense of the West Bank by Arab forces would be a truly suicidal enterprise. The late King Hussein understood these facts well. Until 1967, he was careful to keep most of his forces east of the Jordan River. When he momentarily forgot these realities in 1967, it took Israel just three days of fighting to remind him of them.
I just have that sort of face and when I got to Hollywood in the late ’70s they took one look at me and said, ‘Get him a gun. You definitely should be carrying a gun,’ and so a lot of it is just the way I look. I look like I’m angry and dangerous, and in fact, I’m loveable and kind.
I believe this country is in real trouble, and it’s up to us, to fix it before its too late.
One of my favorite films is ‘Late Spring’ by Yasujiro Ozu. To me, it represents film as art.

In the late Fifties and early Sixties, opposition to state terror and aggression and torture and so on was zero. That was a horrible time: the massive Kennedy terror operation against Cuba, the first attacks on Vietnam in 1962, the imposition of national security states in South America.
In the late 1960s, the masses were supposed to be passive, not entering into the public arena and having their voices heard.
There’s no reason, ever, to be late. Or early.

I mean, the death in the late eighties and early nineties really shook out a lot of hacks. The pond just sort of dried up for a lot of really bad comedians.
I’ve always been a late bloomer. My body developed late. From ninth to 10th grade, I grew like 3 inches. Just kind of stretched out. I was like 6-1, grew to 6-4 in 10th grade.
U.S. capital formation, which has been pretty high in the ’90s and very high in the late 1990s, is what is being financed by the savings of the rest of the world, generally poorer than ourselves, because our deficit on current account, chronic deficit, is their surplus, and they have been willingly bringing that to the American market.
Modern American magic, late 20th century magic, is tremendously disrespectful of the audience.
I got a regret: That I started acting so late. I was 27, and guys who start at 18 or so, there’s this kinda continuity of friendships they form in the profession by startin’ young, I’ve never had that.
The Tolkien estate owns the writings of Professor Tolkien. ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ were sold by Professor Tolkien in the late ’60s, the film rights.
When I was younger, I wanted to marry early, like at 23. Year by year, I found things I wanted to do, and the thought of marriage disappeared. But I don’t want to marry too late. Around 31?
Poetry is not Irish or any other nationality and when writers such as Messrs. Clarke, Farren and the late F. R. Higgins pursue Irishness as a poetic end, they are merely exploiting incidental local colour.

I only went to one Star Trek convention and that was in the late ’80s. I hadn’t gone to a convention before that. It was quite amusing, with the people dressed up and all of that.
When I went to high school, in the late 1970s, disco was in full swing and anyone who was into it dressed the part. I know I did.
We do not ask the right questions when we are young, so we miss the important answers. Now it is too late to ask, too late for the illuminating answers, and the unanswered questions haunt us for a lifetime.

In Britain, eponymous lifestyle branding as we know it started in the late 1960s, with two fascinating families – the Conrans and the Ashleys – who in increasingly brilliant settings and catalogues sold rather different visions of what the new ideal upper-middle-y life looked like.
And that format was – we’d been using that format, I guess, since the late ’70s, and it was starting to get very predictable. In other words, certain songs would surface in the same points in the set every so often it was like rotation.
We’ve got a very difficult situation created by this embrace of the so-called Arab Spring. And that’s not getting better. It’s getting worse. The carnage for the people of Syria is horrific, and it’s quite frankly too little, too late to reverse a lot of that.
I’ve seen too many sunrises, as far as the walk of shame, staying out too late doing very bad things.
Most breast cancer-related deaths can be prevented through simple and painless preventive measures. A late diagnosis can result in more serious, long-term consequences.
I think that its easy to think of the environment as all doom and gloom and that, ‘What can we do, it’s too late. And the polar bears are gone, and everything is gone.’ But really, just the little steps that we can make as individuals make a big difference.
When I was prepping for my Broadway debut as Romeo, it really hit me that I had never done that. I had trained at drama school for three years in my late teens to early 20s, and I’d studied Shakespeare, of course, but I hadn’t actually performed it. So to do something like Romeo for my first Broadway role was a challenge.
Most people die of a sort of creeping common sense, and discover when it is too late that the only things one never regrets are one’s mistakes.
I got into Facebook late, and I think if you get into Facebook late, you tend to use it the right way, as opposed to the people who got into it sooner and friended everybody and now have a thousand friends. I keep it at about 80 or so, and they’re all people I know. Just because I do a movie doesn’t mean I friend everybody in it.
Whilst we deliberate how to begin a thing, it grows too late to begin it.
On my left forearm, I’ve got a gothic cross with a tombstone in the center with the initials ‘E’ and ‘G’ for my friend, the late Eddie Guerrero.

I’m a late developer in everything. I have a fast mind and fast metabolism, and I’m an intense worker, but in terms of life development, I’m way behind.

I went through puberty late. I was a little, little, tiny kid. I was still growing in college.
I think the Internet is an awful lot like FM radio was when it broke out in the late ’60s. It’s kind of a wild and wily kind of format. They could play 20 songs in a row that had the word ‘blue’ in them, or whatever they wanted to do.
In the late ’70s, maybe just before I started, there was still an attitude that if you did film you didn’t do TV and vice versa, but that’s gone now.
In the late 19th century, the Populists – a protest movement of mainly disaffected farmers and workers – threatened to overturn established authority.
We were having a sleepover when I was eight or nine, and we all got to stay up late and watch the original ‘Frankenstein.’ It was uncensored, so as a child, I saw the scene where he throws the little girl into the lake, and that freaked me out. Though not as much as when he hangs the hunchback.
In the late 60s and early 70s, I did get interested in voices, and in narration and embodying the voice, making the poem sound like a real person talking.
Really, I was such a late bloomer, I really didn’t learn how to be me until I was in my late ’40s, which is when I started playing roles that were closer to me.
You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Early in my career, I was involved with engineer-led projects, where designers came in late in the game and were expected to put lipstick on an existing code base. This almost never works.
In the late 19th century, the theory that the Aborigines were an inferior race that was doomed to die out became accepted as fact.
One of the finest statesmen of the present time is also a first-class scout, and that is Mr. Roosevelt, the late President of the United States of America.
Everybody, soon or late, sits down to a banquet of consequences.
It’s a miracle was the last track recorded for the album, we based it on the rhythm from the middle of ‘Late Home Tonight, where there’s Graham Broad playing lots and lots of drums with me shouting in the background, pretending to be a mad Arab leader.
I’m not the judge of who that is, but I am a believer that no debt in the universe goes unpaid. If you try to buy early, you’ll pay late.
Obama is not the messiah any longer. He is now your standard, ordinary, everyday politician who lies, who breaks promises, who’s in it for himself, who can’t do anything on his own. He’s not qualified. All of this is becoming known, sadly, too late.
I’m very fond of Tennessee Williams’ plays, and when my husband and I went to New Orleans in the late 1970s, we saw ‘A Street Car Named Desire.’
I’m really excited that the studio is trying, because when I began my career in the early ’90s, late ’80s, Disney was not something – though I respected it and liked what they were doing in those years – it’s not like I thought I wanted to be a part of that studio right now.
There’s a part of me that wishes I’d never said one single solitary word on any subject publicly. Then I could have been the tortured poet, and there’s so much mileage in that. But it’s too late to stop now.
I started driving really late. It was super freeing and fun to be able to just drive by myself. But the thing is, I don’t really like driving.
The first famous winemaking consultant was the late professor Emile Peynaud, who reigned over Bordeaux throughout the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.
Commonwealth’ is not a word I ever used growing up in Colombo. There, in the late 1950s, it would have meant little more than New Zealand lamb and Anchor butter at the cold stores.
I know that when I grew up I was pretty sheltered, and didn’t come to understand much about the world until I was in my really late teens and early twenties, and that process continues.
Well, I think one of the reasons Chicago became so popular as a filmmaker location is because New York had been used so many times that Chicago, I think, was rediscovered maybe in the late ’60s, early ’70s for a long time as a new location.
I didn’t mind being in school. But I was usually uninspired and always late. I did what I had to, but not more.
I opened the Woodstock Festival even though I was supposed to be fifth. I said, ‘What am I doing here? No, no, not me, not first!’ I had to go on stage because there was no one else to go on first – the concert was already two-and-a-half hours late.
Too often, the opportunity knocks, but by the time you push back the chain, push back the bolt, unhook the two locks and shut off the burglar alarm, it’s too late.
There was only one decline in church attendance, and that was in the late 1960s when the Vatican said it was not a sin to miss Mass. They said Catholics could act like Protestants, and so they did.
I was a bit of a late developer, and everyone was saying, ‘Whatever you do, don’t shave,’ and I hadn’t really started shaving. I remember rubbing the soot from a kettle on to my bumfluff to make it look more like I had a beard.
In the late ’30’s when I was in college, physics – and in particular, nuclear physics – was the most exciting field in the world.
I worked at CBS in the late ’90s, and I remember sitting in meetings with both advertisers and digerati, and everyone was saying, ‘Network TV is dead.’
I gave my last concert in 1976. For 32 years, I had given everything I had. I wanted to stop. My last big debut was in Russia in 1973. After I retired, I didn’t have to worry about going out in bad weather. I could stay up late.
My weight doesn’t really fluctuate, but I make sure I don’t eat late at night. It’s about making sure I’m right physically because mentally I’m OK.
Let’s take flight simulation as an example. If you’re trying to train a pilot, you can simulate almost the whole course. You don’t have to get in an airplane until late in the process.
If anything, when you’re in your late 20s, early 30s, and then mid-30s, you’re getting less attractive.
My mom was an environmental activist in Australia in the late ’60s and ’70s, and I guess I’ve inherited that awareness from her.
When I started in the late 1950s, every film I made – no matter how low the budget – got a theatrical release. Today, less that 20-percent of our films get a theatrical release.
Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career. I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead. I’m thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth.
Me, I’d prefer to have a good reputation rather than getting press for being scandalous, getting drunk in public, staying out late and so on.
I do read a poem almost every morning. Unless I’m really, really late, I have to get my poem in.
The late Victorian Era brought in part-time education. Not everybody went to school, but they were supposed to have a decent level of schooling they went part-time after 12.
Daniel Woodrell has made a name as a master of prose with personality – a densely descriptive, gamey form of storytelling, one might say traditional storytelling – of late rather an unfashionable mode.
Late payments also hurt your FICO score. And never, ever take out a cash advance on your credit card.
Is it too late to institute a leap year and mandate that the holidays fall on regular, convenient dates – so that Id al-Fitr will come, say, in the spring and Id al-Adha in early summer?
I’m not the type of guy who’s funny in the room. I’m the guy who’s funny late at night on a computer, trying to construct jokes.
The American preoccupation with the law, which is certainly not past, was at its zenith in 1995. The 1980s, the late 1980s, had sort of begun to percolate up to public consciousness this enormous interest in the law.
When I was growing up in L.A. in the late ’70s and early ’80s, Michael Jackson’s was the first face on TV that looked like mine.
The late, great Janis Joplin could drink ten men under the table, then sing loud enough to shake the teeth out of their head.
The learned are not agreed as to the time when the Gospel of John was written some dating it as early as the year 68, others as late as the year 98 but it is generally conceded to have been written after all the others.
When I was doing ‘A Disappearing Number’ in Plymouth, we had to go on an hour and a half late, and I still hadn’t written an end, so we had to make one up, and then we had to go out literally with our pants round our ankles.
The synagogues of late antiquity and the early medieval period were built around imagery: imagery of remembering the Temple, but also of the celestial zodiac, too.
In the late ’80s and early ’90s, there was a slightly retro drum sound that was popular in hip-hop music called the 808 bass drum sound. It was the bass drum sound on the 808 drum machine, and it’s very deep and very resonant, and was used as the backbone as a lot of classic hip-hop tracks.
It is a very brave choice to go against traditional medicine and embrace the alternative route. It’s easier to try the traditional route and then, if it fails, go to the alternatives, but often it can be too late.
Well, if you look back, in almost two and a half years, the biggest change probably was in late 2000 when we decided to totally change the CA business model.
One of the benefits for me of starting late in this business is I realised that if acting was the only thing I could do, I would struggle, so I always wrote as well.
In my late teens and early 20s, I worked hard on my roles, but, to be honest, I didn’t feel any special commitment to acting.
When Ellen Datlow was running the fiction at ‘Omni’ in the late ’80s and into the ’90s, I had a subscription. It was one of two subscriptions I’d saved for, the other being ‘Spider-Man.’ And they each opened my mind and my heart in wonderful ways.
I suffered when I was in my late twenties and early thirties. I was awkward, I stuck out, I was nerdy.
Unlike the LeBrons and A-Rods of the world, anointed as special from pre-K, Matt Leinart exudes an approachability rarely seen in superstars. It’s why kids on the autograph line chat him up like a buddy with whom they could stay up late playing Xbox.
In 2008, Bitcoin was mysteriously introduced to the world in an obscure, technical paper written under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. By late 2013, the financial press was filled with reportage on Bitcoin and its dramatic price increase.
In January 2013, one could buy a Bitcoin for about $13. By late November, one Bitcoin would have set a buyer back over $1100.
I remember some of the limited debate I did back in high school in the late ’70s, early ’80s: nuclear proliferation was always the big topic, and it’s bad. We don’t want to see it.
If any of you have ever lived down south of the Mason-Dixon line, you know that late September still means summer heat.
I’ve been on the tour for many, many years. It’s time for me to go now, before it’s too late.
At one time, late Yash-ji, too, wanted to do two to three films, but somehow, I am not the kind to do too many things at the same time. I like to take it slow and steady.
I feel so comfortable in an acting role, you know, as an actor. Maybe it’s because I came into it late. If anything, I’ve felt frustrated that I can’t carry a film because everything since ‘District 9’ has been supporting roles.
It is not yet too late for the Indian people to decide on rapid, ordered progress. I can assure them that the British people are as determined upon self-government for India as they are themselves.
Late at night, I train after I put my kids to bed because putting my kids to bed is very important to me. I have three daughters they are 8, 6, and soon to be 4. So I train after they go to bed.
My voice broke very late. I think that, deep down, I knew that once it broke, my self-esteem would plummet, as I’d never be head chorister again.
By comparison, ‘The Secret Agent’ is not especially prescient about terrorism, certainly not technically. The Professor was a stock figure of Edwardian fiction, and his dreams of mass destruction were nothing ahead of their time. Many novels in the late 19th and early 20th centuries involved plots far more deadly.
The Jewish exodus from North Africa, in the late nineteen-fifties and the nineteen-sixties, brought hundreds of thousands of Algerian, Moroccan, and Tunisian Jews to France.
The best advice I received came late, and it’s this: Don’t read the comments section of any story that mentions you!

The first time I really listened to an album and thought, ‘This album is mine,’ was Kanye’s ‘Late Registration.’
I was born too late to have any temptation with communism, or at least Soviet-type communism. Travelling in Eastern Europe and the ex-Soviet Union, you clearly don’t want to defend a system that would have empty shops and a totalitarian regime and internal passports.
Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.
I think the running game is very important to every offense. Being balanced is extremely important. There’s times where you have to throw the ball. You could be down late in the game, you need to come back you have to be able to pass it when they know you’re passing it.
Like almost everything else from the West, the Romantic Revolution arrived late in Russia.
I often write either really early in the morning, or really late at night.
The band Grizzly Bear, I think they’re excellent. There’s a beauty and a musicality there that I wish would have been in vogue in the late ’80s, when I was forming bands.
The late Tom Wicker’s biography of Nixon, called ‘One of Us,’ is really quite good: you see the biographer discovering dimensions of sympathy for his subject that he hadn’t expected to feel.
In the the late seventies and early eighties, I played background roles in thirty movies… Woody Allen movies, Scorsese films, you name it. Whatever was being shot in New York, I was doing stand-in and background work because I wanted to be close to the camera I wanted to see what was going on.
When I left Toronto and entered journalism in the late 1990s, I had many notions about the news business, nearly all of them wrong, as it turned out.
I love steakhouses. When I’m in Chicago, I know there’s a Gibsons that’s open late. 13 Coins at Sea-Tac Airport in Washington is a gourmet restaurant I love.
Well, you know, I mean, I first did my live shows in the late 70’s and in those days I had a boatload of equipment that always seemed to be going wrong.
It wasn’t until late in life that I discovered how easy it is to say, ‘I don’t know.’
When Edward Gibbon was writing about the fall of the Roman Empire in the late 18th century, he could argue that transportation hadn’t changed since ancient times. An imperial messenger on the Roman roads could get from Rome to London even faster in A.D. 100 than in 1750. But by 1850, and even more obviously today, all of that has changed.
When I joined Ford, in the late 1970s, I felt strongly we could not forever be a huge user of natural resources without there being consequences. But I was alone in my thinking in those days.
I’m a late bloomer. Even in high school, everyone else was charging ahead, and I didn’t come into my own until very late. I feel that’s true in cinema, too. I didn’t even start ‘Metropolitan’ until I was 37.
I read a great deal of science fiction with consummate pleasure between, say, the ages of 12 and 16. Then I got away from it. In my mid- to late 20s, I started trying to write it.
The world is too much with us late and soon, getting and spending, we lay waste our powers: Little we see in Nature that is ours.
Too late for fruit, too soon for flowers.
As of late, ‘Boyz n the Hood’ really impacted me because I grew up in that same neighborhood. It was the first time I saw a true reflection of me, my neighborhood and my surroundings.
The Taliban outlawed wearing polish in the late 1990s, punishing some offenders by amputating a fingertip. Importing polish was banned only in July 2001, which suggests that women were still wearing painted nails within the safety of their homes.
I was a late bloomer. I was a kinda shy little kid, definitely a child of the dark side. I wanted to play guitar and be in a rock band.
