Do things that are uncomfortable to do. I say that because women tend to step back from things that they don't know about. And the second, most important one is, push through the fear.

Nikki Haley


I don't know whether I have ideas all the time. I think I'm curious about things all the time; I think I'm always curious, and I think I'm always interested in whatever passes by, and I know I tend to think about things, and I tend to talk about things, and sometimes that takes root and gives me something to chase.

James L. Brooks


Why do we feel jealousy? Therapists often regard the demon as a scar of childhood trauma or a symptom of a psychological problem. And it's true that people who feel inadequate, insecure, or overly dependent tend to be more jealous than others.

Helen Fisher


When playing big festivals, I tend to play big, over the top techno tracks, like hands in the air songs that make sense being played in front of 30,000 people. I steer away from subtlety in the interests of big bombastic dance music.



Architects today tend to depreciate themselves, to regard themselves as no more than just ordinary citizens without the power to reform the future.

Kenzo Tange


When you can't do something truly useful, you tend to vent the pent up energy in something useless but available, like snappy dressing.

Lois McMaster Bujold


With me, what you see is what you get. Yes, call me naive, but I love life. I am happy, and for that, I make no apologies. I do like to see the best in people, and when someone is nice to my face, I tend to believe them.

Joyce Giraud


When people are bewildered they tend to become credulous.

Calvin Coolidge


In modern life, we tend to forget family values because of the hectic schedule.

Mahesh Babu


Credit unions are often a better deal than banks and tend to pay higher yields on deposits.

Suze Orman


I tend to stay up late, not because I'm partying but because it's the only time of the day when I'm alone and don't have to be performing.

Jim Carrey


I have a road bike and a mountain bike, and I tend to use them both a lot. They help you keep your balance and your stamina.

Andy Serkis


Tend — quotes and aphorisms

You hear about people your whole life, 'So-and-so has cancer', and you're like, 'Wow, that's too bad', and then most people tend to go about their day. But when someone tells you that it's your father or it's your family, that doesn't tend to go away.

Jake Owen


Everybody is bound by some social rules. But I think that artists need some kind of freedom to explore their minds and that some of them tend to take that freedom to live a little more openly or a little more dangerously, sometimes a lot more self-destructively, than other people.

Anne Roiphe


One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Dale Carnegie


When our bodies are sick and people extend their sympathy, bring us soup, offer up solutions. When our minds are sick, people tend to shy away from you, be afraid, or call you outright crazy. I'm fascinated by the way society and individuals view mental illness, and most of my shorts comment on that.

Anna Akana


If I'm doing something, I tend to do it in a concentrated way.

Allegra Versace


People who follow all the rules and chase every trend tend to get forgotten — they look great, but they're not as memorable.

Dita Von Teese


Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented and happy attitudes and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.
