I'd rather play a few nights at the Fillmore than play one night at an arena.

I care about Bahrain. Bahrain is very dear to me. I will not allow people to play around with our laws.
Play is always voluntary. What might otherwise be play is work if it's forced.
When you play teams that are good defensively and teams that have been there with experience, the object is to keep the goals against down.
You've got to love the villain if you have to play him. You've got to find something that you can live with in yourself if you're going to play the villain in a play on stage.
I never want to play down to the reader. I think readers are willing to go along if they're intrigued.
As you awaken, the present moment becomes your home. You still play in the world of time, but you're not identified with the story unfolding there.
I went to Q-school knowing that I could play well and get through.
But just like I've always said when people complain about tee times, 'I just want a tee time. Just give me one so I can play.
Dee Dee Ramone
Progression is important. I'm always going to play music in the general vein of rock'n'roll, but when I started I was very much associated with the West Coast lo-fi thing and I didn't want to get anchored in with anything that was just in vogue for the time being.
Dee Dee Ramone
The main issue was deciding what to play: Should it be old Ramones material or new material? I had about three albums worth of new material, but I knew that people would rather hear the Ramones songs.

I like to do what I do in my house and I love to play shows, but I don't want to have to go out and talk to a bunch of people I don't know.
Paul Thomas Anderson
Crazy is so hard to play, there's nothing you can really tell an actor.
Every actor has to love and loathe the character he plays.
I hate playing the bass, bro. I've been playing the bass because it's there and I don't want anyone else to play it.
Listen! Say less rather than more. If you want to be smart, play stupid!
The left can't accept rejection, they can't accept defeat, and they're gonna spend the next four years [2017-2020] telling themselves they didn't lose, that Trump is illegitimate, and they're gonna have the media just dumping all over the Republicans each and every day, and who knows what role Obama's gonna play in that, but he will be playing one.
Just wait and see this stuff play out as it does. But if, for example, why would he say some human activity linked to climate change when he has gone on record as saying that he doesn't believe it and we're gonna get people out of the EPA who do and we're gonna stop playing games with this. Why would he say it? [Donald Trump] wants to build a bridge with the opposition. This is why you don't see me at Trump Tower going up and down the elevators.
One of the reasons MSNBC is plummeting is that I, not long ago, refused to play any content from them. I figured, why? I mean, it's genuine depraved partisan politics insanity, genuine extremist radical ignoramuses on that network.
Obama's gonna play Santa Claus with the minimum wage. He's got no successes to brag about. He cannot talk about a robust job market. In fact, the very fact he's talking about the minimum wage is evidence there is no robust job market.
I love any scene where there's a physical confrontation. It reminds me that I'm in show business and I play pretend for a living.
When you're 20 you can put a ton of old-age prosthetics on and be an old guy, but when you're 70 you can't play a 20-year-old.
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitude and expectations. If we feel that our environment could stand some improvement, we can bring about that change for the better by improving our attitude. The world plays no favorites. It's impersonal. It doesn't care who succeeds and who fails. Nor does it care if we change. Our attitude toward life doesn't affect the world and the people in it nearly as much as it affects us.
When I come back like Jordan, wearing the 4-5. It ain't to play games with you, it's to aim at you, probably maim you. If I owe you I'm blowin' you to smithereens.
Watch it, minx," he warned with a lift of his brow. "If you intend to taunt me for every foolish statement I've made in my life, you'll force me to play Rockton and lock you up in my dark, forbidding manor while I have my wicked way with you." That sounds perfectly awful,"she said gazing at the man she loved. "How soon can we start?
To me experimental fiction ultimately is about the experiment and I'm not interested in experiments for their own sake, and if anything I've always steered a bit clear of that kind of thing, because it seems gimmicky to play around with text rather than do the work of telling a story and creating characters.
I was supposed to be too short to play college volleyball.
I would play football, because I love it.
It would be easy to say that I want to play a role that was very much like myself, but more or less with acting, you get to be all these different things, and you aren't trying to be yourself, so it's escapism in a way.
I play a role in front of the cameras, just like in the movies.
