When I was four, I wore an American fireman's hat all
I've always found that word ["hipster"] is used with such disdain, like it's always used by chubby bloggers who aren't getting laid anymore and are bored, and they're just so mad at these young kids for going out and getting wasted and having fun and being fashionable,Gavin McInnes Always Getting Used Sayings By Gavin McInnes: I've always found that word ["hipster"] is used with such disdain, like it's always used

I always wanted to be an actor, even when I was a little kid. When I used to run away from home, I'd go to movies and sit all night watching Kirk Douglas.

I said 'I'll come back when I'm a man,' and I came back when I was 30.Lance Henriksen Always Getting Used Sayings By Lance Henriksen: I always wanted to be an actor, even when I was a little kid. When
He smiled at her, handsome Alan, who was always used to getting his own way. He hadn't changed. Alan, who was already as faithless to Cinta as he had been to her. Suddenly, like a focus in binoculars, everything became clear. This was a man worth spending not one more minute thinking about, second-guessing or trying to understand.Maeve Binchy Always Getting Used Sayings By Maeve Binchy: He smiled at her, handsome Alan, who was always used to getting his own way.

We are always getting to live, as Ralph Waldo Emerson used to say, but never living. Or as poor Frances learned in the children's story, it is always bread and jam tomorrow, never brad and jam today.Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi Always Getting Used Sayings By Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: We are always getting to live, as Ralph Waldo Emerson used to say, but never
When she emerged, Keith was watching the tiny round window of the under-the-counter washing machine.
"Put your clothes in for a wash," he said. "They were disgusting."
Ginny always thought that the only way of getting clothes clean was by drowning them in scalding water and then whipping them around in a violent centrifugal motion that caused the entire washing machine to vibrate and the floor to shake. You beat them clean. You made them suffer. This machine used about half a cup of water and was about as violent as a toaster, plus it stopped every few minutes, as if it were exhausted from the effort of turning itself.
Sluff, sluff, sluff sluff. Rest. Rest. Rest.
Click.
Sluff, sluff, sluff, sluff. Rest. Rest. Rest.
"Who thought to put a window on a washing machine?" Keith asked. "Does anyone just sit and watch their wash?"
You mean, besides us?"
"Well," he said, "yeah. Is there any coffee?
Maureen Johnson Always Getting Used Sayings By Maureen Johnson: When she emerged, Keith was watching the tiny round window of the under-the-counter washing machine.
When I'm teaching, I'm not really doing my job if the student who's always comfortable doing wacko stuff all over the page keeps getting gold stars from me for doing wacko stuff all over the page. A riskier assignment for that student, who might be used to hiding behind a lot of formal armor, would be to try to do something straightforward, traditionally, in which they are much more directly laid bare for the reader.John D'Agata Always Getting Used Sayings By John D'Agata: When I'm teaching, I'm not really doing my job if the student who's always comfortable
Whereas my grandfather was getting used to a much more terrifying reality. Holding my hand to keep his balance, as trees and bushes made strange, sliding movements in his peripheral vision, Lefty was confronting the possibility that consciousness was a biological accident. Though he'd never been religious, he realized now that he'd always believed in the soul, in a force of personality that survived death. But as his mind continued to waver, to short-circuit, he finally arrived at the cold-eyed conclusion, so at odds with his youthful cheerfulness, that the brain was just an organ like any other and that when it failed he would be no more.Jeffrey Eugenides Always Getting Used Sayings By Jeffrey Eugenides: Whereas my grandfather was getting used to a much more terrifying reality. Holding my hand
I must be getting absent-minded. Whenever I complain that things aren't what they used to be, I always forget to include myself.George Burns Always Getting Used Sayings By George Burns: I must be getting absent-minded. Whenever I complain that things aren't what they used to
I used to watch my Cuban mother getting ready singing 'Dos Gardenias,' so to me fashion has always been fun.Maria Canals Barrera Always Getting Used Sayings By Maria Canals Barrera: I used to watch my Cuban mother getting ready singing 'Dos Gardenias,' so to me
I've obviously used fans - I wouldn't say all my life, because we couldn't afford them when I was young, but from my 20s and onwards we've had to use fans. And I've always loathed them. Everything about them. The way you adjust them, getting them at the angle you want. Carrying them. Cleaning them. The danger of putting your finger in them.James Dyson Always Getting Used Sayings By James Dyson: I've obviously used fans - I wouldn't say all my life, because we couldn't afford
You always worry and you always fear what's next. But you eventually just push forward knowing you can't really do much about getting rid of the anxiety. You see people get pets after their kids leave the house because they're so used to having something around to dote on and worry about.Drew Magary Always Getting Used Sayings By Drew Magary: You always worry and you always fear what's next. But you eventually just push forward
People are not used to seeing an older woman on screen, unless she's playing a character role. Why can't they make a movie about a woman who's forty-five who's falling in love or getting divorced? Why does the leading role always have to be a woman who's twenty-three or twenty-eight?Melanie Griffith Always Getting Used Sayings By Melanie Griffith: People are not used to seeing an older woman on screen, unless she's playing a
I've always been terrified of getting used to something that is actually killing me-a relationship or a job. But in those cases, you can count on a friend to say something. The Internet is different, because all my friends are in the same relationship.Miranda July Always Getting Used Sayings By Miranda July: I've always been terrified of getting used to something that is actually killing me-a relationship
I wonder what Lena is doing now. I always wonder what Lena is doing. Rachel, too: both my girls, my beautiful, big-eyed girls. But I worry about Rachel less. Rachel was always harder than Lena, somehow. More defiant, more stubborn, less feeling . Even as a girl, she frightened me - fierce and fiery-eyed, with a temper like my father's once was.
But Lena . . . little darling Lena, with her tangle of dark hair and her flushed, chubby cheeks. She used to rescue spiders from the pavement to keep them from getting squashed; quiet, thoughtful Lena, with the sweetest lisp to break your heart. To break my heart: my wild, uncured, erratic, incomprehensible heart. I wonder whether her front teeth still overlap; whether she still confuses the words pretzel and pencil occasionally; whether the wispy brown hair grew straight and long, or began to curl.
I wonder whether she believes the lies they told her.
Lauren Oliver Always Getting Used Sayings By Lauren Oliver: I wonder what Lena is doing now. I always wonder what Lena is doing. Rachel,
Doris was getting No. 4 ready for a new guest. The floor did not trouble her much, but she spent quite a long time on the taps and the veneered top of the dressing-table. Dusting and polishing she liked - things that showed - but those bits of fluff and dried mud at the bottom of the wardrobe she just pushed back into a corner. There was no means of getting them out, anyway, with that ridge at the front. Furniture was always made as inconvenient as possible. Doris was used to that.Monica Dickens Always Getting Used Sayings By Monica Dickens: Doris was getting No. 4 ready for a new guest. The floor did not trouble
I'm also old ... and my own gift for writing fantasy grows out of very literal-minded, pragmatic soil: the things I do when I'm not telling stories have always been pretty three-dimensional. I used to say that the only strong attraction reality ever had for me was horses and horseback riding, but I've also been cooking and going for long walks since I was a kid (yes, the two are related), and I'm getting even more three dimensionally biased as I get older - gardening, bell ringing ... piano playing ... And the stories I seem to need to write seem to need that kind of nourishment from me - how you feed your story telling varies from writer to writer. My story-telling faculty needs real-world fresh air and experiences that create calluses (and sometimes bruises).Robin McKinley Always Getting Used Sayings By Robin McKinley: I'm also old ... and my own gift for writing fantasy grows out of very
Ahh, you're a man used to getting his own way."
"Always," he said in a husky growl.
Maya Banks Always Getting Used Sayings By Maya Banks: Ahh, you're a man used to getting his own way.""Always," he said in a husky
Mitch had a particular way with women - a formula of giving and withholding that almost always managed to hook them. Getting them to talk about themselves was the first step; remaining enigmatic was the second. There were other steps, but he used only the first two during that encounter.Lisa Lutz Always Getting Used Sayings By Lisa Lutz: Mitch had a particular way with women - a formula of giving and withholding that
Mother did not spend all her time in paying dull calls to dull ladies, and sitting dully at home waiting for dull ladies to pay calls to her. She was almost always there, ready to play with the children, and read to them, and help them to do their home-lessons. Besides this she used to write stories for them while they were at school, and read them aloud after tea, and she always made up funny pieces of poetry for their birthdays and for other great occasions, such as the christening of the new kittens, or the refurnishing of the doll's house, or the time when they were getting over the mumps.E. Nesbit Always Getting Used Sayings By E. Nesbit: Mother did not spend all her time in paying dull calls to dull ladies, and
Before I was twenty, I mean, I used to think that life was a thing that kept gaining impetus. It would get richer and deeper each year. You kept learning more, getting wiser, having more insight, going further into the truth - " She hesitated. Port laughed abruptly. "And now you know it's not like that. Right? It's more like smoking a cigarette. The first few puffs it tastes wonderful, and you don't even think of its ever being used up. Then you begin taking it for granted. Suddenly you realize it's nearly burned down to the end. And then's when you're conscious of the bitter taste." "But I'm always conscious of the unpleasant taste and of the end approaching," she said.Paul Bowles Always Getting Used Sayings By Paul Bowles: Before I was twenty, I mean, I used to think that life was a thing
I'm very stodgy. I'm always looking at old photos of California and Los Angeles, knowing that what I'm looking at is now full of houses. There used to be vacant lots in Los Angeles, now all taken up by three-storey boxes - it's all getting infilled.Edward Ruscha Always Getting Used Sayings By Edward Ruscha: I'm very stodgy. I'm always looking at old photos of California and Los Angeles, knowing
I've always heard that women secretly want their father. So I used to walk around in a 1950s business suit, with a hat and a pipe. My opening line would be, 'You should be getting to bed now.'Conan O'Brien Always Getting Used Sayings By Conan O'Brien: I've always heard that women secretly want their father. So I used to walk around
Every bed I've ever slept in never felt like my own. There were always strange sheets, strange smells - and just when I thought I'd be getting used to it, we'd have to leave. I got so tired of running."

Then stay. You don't ever have to run again.
Felice Stevens Always Getting Used Sayings By Felice Stevens: Every bed I've ever slept in never felt like my own. There were always strange
I lay in bed last night and thought of G.P. I thought of being in bed with him. I wanted to be in bed with him. I wanted the marvellous, the fantastic ordinariness of him. His promiscuity is creative. Vital. Even though it hurts. He creates love and life and excitement around him; he lives; the people he loves always remember him.
I've always felt like it sometimes. Promiscuous. Anyone I see, even just some boy in the Tube, some man, I think what he would be like in bed. I look at their mouths and their hands, put on a prim expression and think about them having me in bed.
Even Toinette, getting into bed with anyone. I used to think it was messy. But love is beautiful, any love. Even just sex.
John Fowles Always Getting Used Sayings By John Fowles: I lay in bed last night and thought of G.P. I thought of being in
The reward you get from a story is always less than you thought it would be, and the work is harder than you imagined. The point of a story is never about the ending, remember. It's about your character getting molded in the hard work of the middle. At some point the shore behind you stops getting smaller, and you paddle and wonder why the same strokes that used to move you now only rock the boat. You got the wife, but you don't know if you like her anymore and you've only been married for five years. You want to wake up and walk into the living room in your underwear and watch football and let your daughters play with the dog because the far shore doesn't get closer no matter how hard you paddle.

The shore you left is just as distant, and there is no going back; there is only the decision to paddle in place or stop, slide out of the hatch, and sink into the sea. Maybe there's another story at the bottom of the sea. Maybe you don't have to be in this story anymore.
Donald Miller Always Getting Used Sayings By Donald Miller: The reward you get from a story is always less than you thought it would
Every little move the dog made had me guessing which direction it would go. I had been through many fights, so I was getting good at this.
But my heart was always filled with sadness. How long was Yuka going to make me do this? I didn't really want to kill anything. All my life, I'd never thought my jaws were meant to be used this way.
Otsuichi Always Getting Used Sayings By Otsuichi: Every little move the dog made had me guessing which direction it would go. I
My mother was a professional sick person; she took a lot of pain pills. There are many people like that. It's just how they are used to getting attention. I always remember she's the daughter of alcoholics who'd leave her alone at Christmas time.Jim Carrey Always Getting Used Sayings By Jim Carrey: My mother was a professional sick person; she took a lot of pain pills. There
She eyes him warily. Exactly the same way she did when he came into her office
years ago.
It comes into his mind to wonder why she is always so alert in his presence. In
college, he used to think that she was afraid of his intellect, but he's known
for years that this is the last of her worries. At Black Sun Systems, he
figured that it was just typical female guardedness -- Juanita was afraid he was
trying to get her into the sack. But this, too, is pretty much out of the
question.
At this late date in his romantic career, he is just canny enough to come up
with a new theory: She's being careful because she likes him. She likes him in
spite of herself. He is exactly the kind of tempting but utterly wrong romantic
choice that a smart girl like Juanita must learn to avoid.
That's definitely it. There's something to be said for getting older.
Neal Stephenson Always Getting Used Sayings By Neal Stephenson: She eyes him warily. Exactly the same way she did when he came into her
And when we used to play and fight in the streets in Brooklyn and I would get hurt or something, my mother would always come out and save me. So that sort of postponed the inevitable about getting a good beating, without having somebody to come and save you.Sanford I. Weill Always Getting Used Sayings By Sanford I. Weill: And when we used to play and fight in the streets in Brooklyn and I
Where's Chase?" Maya said. "I want to guilt him into getting my bags for me."
Zane gave a sigh of the long-suffering. "How many?"
"Four, but two of them are small."
"You're going on a cattle drive, not touring the capitals of Europe."
Maya leaned toward Phoebe. "He's always crabby when people invade his precious ranch. Hmm. Actually he's crabby most of the time."
Zane's scowl didn't seem to affect Maya, who linked arms with Phoebe, then used her free hand to blow Zane a kiss.
Susan Mallery Always Getting Used Sayings By Susan Mallery: Where's Chase?" Maya said. "I want to guilt him into getting my bags for me."Zane
In Washington, one man could do what ten of them do. There could be only a quarter or a third as many congressmen or senators, and we would pick better ones then. But it's the system that we have always used, and there is no use getting all overcome with perspiration over it. Things kinder run themselves, anyhow.Will Rogers Always Getting Used Sayings By Will Rogers: In Washington, one man could do what ten of them do. There could be only
I'm used to getting reviews. I try not to read much because you'll always focus on the bad ones and not remember the good ones, so it can be a negative thing for a performer.Sam Trammell Always Getting Used Sayings By Sam Trammell: I'm used to getting reviews. I try not to read much because you'll always focus
I always figured it was best if I write my songs, take them to my publisher and just lay back. There used to be so many things going on - getting to the artist, getting to the publishers - you know, politics. I just didn't want to get mixed up in all of that.Otis Blackwell Always Getting Used Sayings By Otis Blackwell: I always figured it was best if I write my songs, take them to my
I probably have the worst wardrobe. It's the most ill-fitting with the worst patterns and colors and the most nipple rubbage. There's bad chafing, and it's always tight in all the wrong places. What's sad is that I'm kinda getting used to it.Josh Hopkins Always Getting Used Sayings By Josh Hopkins: I probably have the worst wardrobe. It's the most ill-fitting with the worst patterns and
When I was young and getting bullied at school and really not feeling like I would amount to much and staying isolated, my mom used to say to me a lot about how you treat people and always having dignity and respect.Ruby Rose Always Getting Used Sayings By Ruby Rose: When I was young and getting bullied at school and really not feeling like I
I write from seven to about noon. I used to try to write longer, but I read and I found that I was always getting myself tired by working in the afternoon and then I was just throwing out what I wrote in the afternoon, so writing then was counterproductive.Robert Caro Always Getting Used Sayings By Robert Caro: I write from seven to about noon. I used to try to write longer, but
Automotive sales is changing. What skills are required at the front line today and how do you develop them? According to our data, we're getting fewer visits to dealers but conversion rates are going up and up. Customers now visit a dealer simply to see the car in the flesh and then to buy it, so they've already more or less decided what to buy from all the information available online. For us, it's important to ensure that in our digital channels we can still provoke the same feelings, the sensations and the comfort with the brand that we used to always do in the dealerships. TheThomas Baumgartner Always Getting Used Sayings By Thomas Baumgartner: Automotive sales is changing. What skills are required at the front line today and how
I always used to wonder why American actors were getting fat, then I made a U.S. movie. I'm seeing all the food every day, and there's lots of waiting around because making an American movie is very slow.Donnie Yen Always Getting Used Sayings By Donnie Yen: I always used to wonder why American actors were getting fat, then I made a
As a child, I always enjoyed - my parents used to have these little cocktail parties - and I always loved trying to get the adults to tell me things they weren't supposed to say. And in many ways, that's what my job is today; it's getting people to tell me things that they probably are otherwise not supposed to say.Andrew Ross Sorkin Always Getting Used Sayings By Andrew Ross Sorkin: As a child, I always enjoyed - my parents used to have these little cocktail
I used to think that a good relationship meant always getting along. But the secret, I realize, is that when one person shuts down or throws a fit, the other needs to stay in the adult ego state. If both people descend to the wounded child or adapted adolescent, that's when all forces of relationship drama and destruction are unleashed.Neil Strauss Always Getting Used Sayings By Neil Strauss: I used to think that a good relationship meant always getting along. But the secret,
Hey, there, Kizuki, I thought. Unlike you, I've chosen to live - and to live the best I know how. Sure, it was hard for you. What the hell, it's hard for me. Really hard. And all because you killed yourself and left Naoko behind. But that's something I will never do. I will never, ever, turn my back on her. First of all, because I love her, and because I'm stronger than she is. And I'm just going to keep on getting stronger. I'm going to mature. I'm going to be an adult. Because that's what I have to do. I always used to think I'd like to stay 17 or 18 if I could. But not any more. I'm not a teenager any more. I've got a sense of responsibility now. I' m not the same person I was when we used to hang out together. I'm 20 now. And I have to pay the price to go on living.Haruki Murakami Always Getting Used Sayings By Haruki Murakami: Hey, there, Kizuki, I thought. Unlike you, I've chosen to live - and to live
I'd always used humour as a weapon, as a protection. But being able to make people laugh is a way of not getting in too deep; it's a quick, transient fix.Michelle Gomez Always Getting Used Sayings By Michelle Gomez: I'd always used humour as a weapon, as a protection. But being able to make
[Hemingway] always used to bawl me out for including so much topical stuff. He always claimed that was a great mistake, that in fifty years nobody would understand. He may have been right; it's getting to be true.John Dos Passos Always Getting Used Sayings By John Dos Passos: [Hemingway] always used to bawl me out for including so much topical stuff. He always
Mama always used to say that love is never lost, even if it's not returned in the way you hope or expect. "Put it on out there," she said. "Lay your heart on the line, and don't be afraid of getting it broken. Broken hearts heal. Guarded hearts just turn to stone.Penelope J. Stokes Always Getting Used Sayings By Penelope J. Stokes: Mama always used to say that love is never lost, even if it's not returned
Yet there will always be a problem about getting rid of the hyphen: if it's not extra-marital sex (with a hyphen), it is perhaps extra marital sex, which is quite a different bunch of coconuts. Phrases abound that cry out for hyphens. Those much-invoked examples of the little used car, the superfluous hair remover, the pickled herring merchant, the slow moving traffic and the two hundred odd members of the Conservative Party would all be lost without it.Lynne Truss Always Getting Used Sayings By Lynne Truss: Yet there will always be a problem about getting rid of the hyphen: if it's
