Top Singles Quotes

Singles Quotes By Barack Obama

We should not anticipate that every time countries come together that we are doing some revolutionary thing. Instead of hitting home runs, sometimes we're going to hit singles. — Barack Obama

Singles Quotes By Aziz Ansari

Today, if you own a smartphone, you're carrying a 24-7 singles bar in your pocket. — Aziz Ansari

Singles Quotes By Serena Williams

What's going to make me happy is going on the court and holding up trophies, singles and doubles. — Serena Williams

Singles Quotes By Emily Auerbach

Eudora Welty singles out for praise Austen's "habit of seeing both sides of her own subject - of seeing it indeed in the round" ... Both men and women can be vain about their appearances, selfish about money, overawed by rank, and limited by parochialism; both men and women can function capably, think profoundly, feel deeply, create imaginatively, laugh wittily, and love faithfully. Without vindicating the rights of anyone directly, Austen posits a humanism far ahead of her time. "How really modern she is, after all," Welty concludes of Austen. — Emily Auerbach

Singles Quotes By Bella DePaulo

Most married people can expect a specific other person to be there for them in a way that a single person typically cannot. Does that make married people more mature than single people?

Married people are on training wheels. Singles are riding the bikes for grown-ups. — Bella DePaulo

Singles Quotes By Ian Curtis

I tend not to listen. When I'm listening to records, I don't listen to much new wave stuff, I tend to listen to the stuff I used to listen to a few years back but sort of odd singles. — Ian Curtis

Singles Quotes By Alice Cooper

You can't get the visual thing on the record as much as you'd like to. We produced this album, and we'd never done that before, except when we produced singles for ourselves. — Alice Cooper

Singles Quotes By Warren Zevon

You had to go to a different part of town from where I was to get Muddy Waters singles. I had him on singles. — Warren Zevon

Singles Quotes By Terry Hayes

Movies are a team sport now, and I want to play singles. — Terry Hayes

Singles Quotes By Roy Wood

I've always been a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. I always feel that you should keep singles as commercial as possible so that the people can walk down the road and whistle a song. But on the other hand on albums I think you can afford to show people what you can do. — Roy Wood

Singles Quotes By Hope D. Blackwell

Success in relationships takes death to the flesh. Singles stop begging for what you won't die for and couples start dying so your marriage can live. — Hope D. Blackwell

Singles Quotes By Judith Martin

There was no singles problem until singles got so single-minded that they stopped wasting time with anyone ineligible. Before that, it was understood that one of society's main tasks was matchmaking. People with lifelong friendships and ties to local nonprofessional organizations did not have to fear that isolation would accompany retirement, old age, or losing a spouse. Overburdened householders could count on the assistance not only of their own extended families, but of the American tradition of neighborliness. — Judith Martin

Singles Quotes By P. J. O'Rourke

Modern elites live in bubbles of liberal affluence like Ann Arbor, Brookline, the Upper West Side, Palo Alto, or Chevy Chase. These places used to have impoverished neighborhoods nearby, but the poor people got chased out by young singles living in group homes, hipsters, and urban homesteading gay couples. — P. J. O'Rourke

Singles Quotes By George Burns

Tennis is a young man's game. Until you're 25, you can play singles. From 25 to 35, you should play doubles. I won't tell you exactly how old I am, but when I played, there were 28 men on the court - just on my side of the net. — George Burns

Singles Quotes By Chad Griffin

Today's decision affirms what we all know to be true - the U.S. Constitution guarantees the basic civil rights of all Americans, not just some. Utah's ban on marriage equality does nothing to strengthen or protect any marriage. Instead, it singles out thousands of loving Utah families for unfair treatment simply because of who they are. Our Constitution does not allow for such blatant discrimination. — Chad Griffin

Singles Quotes By Rainer Maria Rilke

Love at first has nothing to do with unfolding, abandon and uniting with another person (for what would be the sense in a union of what is unrefined and unfinished, still second order?); for the individual it is a grand opportunity to mature, to become something in himself, to become a world, to become a world in himself for another's sake; it is a great immoderate demand made upon the self, something that singles him out and summons him to vast designs. — Rainer Maria Rilke

Singles Quotes By Tom Bailey

Twelve years ago me and Allanah became really sick of writing pop songs, ... Eventually we dug a grave for the Thompson Twins, pushed them in there, and then moved to New Zealand. Before that I'd lived for a long time in south London where reggae was the music of the streets around me. You'd hear it booming out of people's windows and shops, and you could buy great old reggae singles for 50p (NZ1.30) in second hand shops. I'd always loved that sound, so soon after we got here I started making electronic dub records with my mate Rakai Karaitiana as International Observer. — Tom Bailey

Singles Quotes By Cheryl McKay

Dear God: You said in Your Word that man is not meant to be alone. Seriously. You can look it up in Genesis 2:18. So, why do You insist I remain alone? Okay, so I realize I'm not a man. However, I think the spirit behind what You said about Adam included women. After all, when You didn't want Adam to be alone, You created Eve. Did You know, when You said those words, many singles would throw them back in Your face in moments of frustrated isolation? - Sincerely, Your Lonely Daughter Cheryl — Cheryl McKay

Singles Quotes By Meredith Schorr

Singles Quotes By Julieanne O'Connor

Marry for love. But also choose to marry a man or woman who you love that treats you with the ultimate respect for your expression of who you are at your very core. — Julieanne O'Connor

Singles Quotes By Wale

Most artists should be able to make the album that they want. You don't necessarily pick the singles that you want when you're making a record, but for the most part it's the same process. — Wale

Singles Quotes By Billy Ocean

I bought singles until I started working properly and then I started buying albums, so this brings back a lot of teenage memories from being in London before I got work — Billy Ocean

Singles Quotes By Harlan Coben

Cat fish? "
" A cat fish is a person who pretends to be someone thay're not online, especially in romantic relationships." Her voice was flat, matter-of-fact. She needed that now. She needed to spout facts and figures and definitions and not feel a damn thing. "Someone took your pictures and created an online profile for you and put it on a singles site. Two women who fell for the catfish-you are missing. — Harlan Coben

Singles Quotes By Lisa Anderson

First, singles can't learn everything from singles. Duh. Nor can young adults learn everything from other young adults. To think that we're an island unto ourselves and can operate healthily under that construct is both arrogant and misguided. For one thing, we just don't know enough. We need older, seasoned believers to get up in our business and tell us what's what. We need to know where you've walked and what you've learned from the journey. — Lisa Anderson

Singles Quotes By Bjork

I'm a bit of a nerd, I wouldn't mind working in a shop selling records, or having a radio show where I could play obscure singles. — Bjork

Singles Quotes By Russell D. Moore

We need more worship wars, not fewer. What if the war looked like this in your congregation
the young singles petitioning the church to play more of the old classics for the sake of the elderly people, and the elderly people calling on the leadership to contemporize for the sake of the young new believers? This would signal a counting of others more important than ourselves (Phil 2:3), which comes from the spirit of the humiliated, exalted King, Christ (Phil 2:5-11). — Russell D. Moore

Singles Quotes By Zedd

I don't want to put 12 singles on an album. I want to make a story, a little movie. — Zedd

Singles Quotes By William Shakespeare

Well, niece, I hope to see you one day fitted with a husband.
Not till God make men of some other metal than earth. Would it not grieve a woman to be overmastered with a pierce of valiant dust? to make an account of her life to a clod of wayward marl? No, uncle, I'll none: Adam's sons are my brethren; and, truly, I hold it a sin to match in my kindred. — William Shakespeare

Singles Quotes By Mandy Hale

Even most churches don't really know what to do with their singles. They teach classes on "preparing for marriage," "waiting for marriage," and "praying for marriage," but what about just honoring exactly who you are in this moment instead of always prepping for the next phase of life? — Mandy Hale

Singles Quotes By Randy Bachman

With The Guess Who, it took us fifty-something singles before we had hits. — Randy Bachman

Singles Quotes By Anna-Marie McLemore

He thought Kraft Singles contained, within a few inches, all American evils. — Anna-Marie McLemore

Singles Quotes By Various

Singles Quotes By Pamela Cummins

Fantasy Is Not Reality, it is unrealistic to expect your future mate to match your fantasies. — Pamela Cummins

Singles Quotes By Prince

I don't believe in singles. The singles market has changed. I am trying to get back to the old days of releasing albums at will, like Star Wars coming out again. — Prince

Singles Quotes By Amanda Holden

When I go to one of those singles dating parties I believe myself to be a bowl of fruit. When I talk to potential dates, I judge them by the smile in their lips, their smoothness of speech, and the whiteness of teeth; then I offer them the appropriate fruit, which is usually a lemon. — Amanda Holden

Singles Quotes By Robert McKee

The dramatist is fascinated by the inner life, the passions and sins, madness and dreams of the human heart. But not the comedy writer. He fixes on the social life - the idiocy, arrogance, and brutality in society. The comedy writer singles out a particular institution that he feels has become encrusted with hypocrisy and folly, then goes on the attack. Often we can spot the social institution under assault by noting the film's title. — Robert McKee

Singles Quotes By Kathy Valentine

Obviously, the hit singles get the biggest reaction - that's when you can see people really getting excited. — Kathy Valentine

Singles Quotes By Big Sean

I think a lot of my fans are anxious for more than just my singles. They know I'm a dreamer. They know I'm someone who is real spiritual. I love to have fun, and I always have fun songs - songs you can party to. But I also always have songs you can live to, that when you're depressed, it may lift your spirits up. — Big Sean

Singles Quotes By Elton John

What record companies do these days is drain the blood dry of an album, take six singles off it, and harm the longevity of artists' careers by doing it. — Elton John

Singles Quotes By Richard Bach

Kindle Singles is publishing on skates. It prints like lightning; our book meets readers in hours. I've spent so many years waiting for publishers to consider whether they wanted to print a book of mine, making contracts, taking months to fit it into the Fall list or the Spring list, fitting it into an advertising plan. — Richard Bach

Singles Quotes By Mandy Hale

There also seems to be a lack of things to talk about among singles and takens. The common ground between us seems to shrink smaller and smaller with each passing year. — Mandy Hale

Singles Quotes By Aziz Ansari

The 'good-enough marriage' is definitely not good enough for today's singles. We're not content to marry someone who happens to live down the street and gets along okay with our parents. — Aziz Ansari

Singles Quotes By Oksana Baiul

Pairs skating and singles are two different things. Although some skaters have achieved this successfully, it is a very difficult transition. You're looking at double work. — Oksana Baiul

Singles Quotes By Corey Taylor

Now you've got people who don't really have the skills, because technology hides it, going out and putting these crappy singles out, and because that's all there really is, people basically eat it like hamburgers. It's become very, very commercialized. Which wouldn't bother me as much if people actually had talent. When I listen to something and the first thing I notice is that it's been turned into crap, I shut it off and throw it out the window of my car. Like it's the most offensive thing to me. — Corey Taylor

Singles Quotes By Lou Adler

Johnny Rivers is underestimated as an artist. We had four top 10 singles. — Lou Adler

Singles Quotes By Mark Driscoll

Singles, fornicating is an internship for adultery. — Mark Driscoll

Singles Quotes By Karen Joy Fowler

I've read that no loss compares to the loss of a twin, that survivors describe themselves as feeling less like singles and more like the crippled remainder of something once whole. Even when the loss occurs in utero, some survivors respond with a lifelong sense of their own incompleteness. Identical twins suffer the most, followed by fraternals. — Karen Joy Fowler

Singles Quotes By Harbhajan Singh

The batsman does not always need to create big hits. He can hit a boundary, then pick up some singles and still gets nine runs. To avoid that, I need to plan in a way where he must look to hit wherever there is a fielder. That is what is called 'bowling to the field.' — Harbhajan Singh

Singles Quotes By ASAP Rocky

People don't make albums any more. It's always about singles. I wanted to take that old-school approach. — ASAP Rocky

Singles Quotes By Lisa Anderson

For the most part, the church doesn't know what to do with singles, largely because the visible majority of church members have moved beyond singleness and lost touch with the needs, attitudes, and aspirations of single adults. — Lisa Anderson

Singles Quotes By Kristi Yamaguchi

Winning in women's singles felt surreal. I felt that everything I had done - the hard work, the tough times - was all worth it. — Kristi Yamaguchi

Singles Quotes By George Jones

There were a lot of songs during my MCA years that I thought should have been singles but were not. You can't worry about what wasn't - I was very lucky to have as many hits as I had. — George Jones

Singles Quotes By Rob Sheffield

'I'll Tumble 4 Ya' has to be one of the most ridiculous hit singles that any international superstars have given the world. — Rob Sheffield

Singles Quotes By Helen Reddy

My audience is the baby-boomers, the bulk of the population. This is also a group that is being ignored by most record companies because they're not the Top 40 hit singles market. They forget these people still listen to music. — Helen Reddy

Singles Quotes By Flora Purim

I don't determine the singles. I believe the record company sends a bunch of CDs out to people that they trust in the business, and wait for their response to determine which songs will become singles. — Flora Purim

Singles Quotes By Shawn Amos

Music and philanthropy have a long, benevolent relationship with one another. Record bins are rife with charity singles, and concert history is filled with benefit shows for every imaginable cause. Musicians like to give back. — Shawn Amos

Singles Quotes By John C. McGinley

The learning curve on soaps is through the roof because it's a three-camera setup. There's a master and then there's two singles. And the great thing about soaps, and soap actors will tell you, is that when you get your line wrong, they don't re-shoot it. They just cut to the person listening. — John C. McGinley

Singles Quotes By Joe Garagiola

The Chicago Cubs are like Rush Street-a lot of singles, but no action. — Joe Garagiola

Singles Quotes By Joe Bob Briggs

Famous Writer needs woman to organize his life and spend his money. Loves to turn off Sunday football and go to the Botanical Gardens with that special someone. Will obtain plastic surgery if necessary. — Joe Bob Briggs

Singles Quotes By Elizabeth I

If I follow the inclination of my nature, it is this: beggar-woman and single, far rather than queen and married. — Elizabeth I

Singles Quotes By Avril Lavigne

It's so different now coming out as a new artist today than it was when I came out almost ten years ago. Now, it's all about singles, it's really quick, it's online. I came out when people sold records and they still do today but - I don't know what the key is. — Avril Lavigne

Singles Quotes By Gail Zappa

When you have a single composer writing his work, it shouldn't be doled out in singles based on the length of a piece. — Gail Zappa

Singles Quotes By Steven Pinker

But that could not have been the main cause of the carnage, because in subsequent centuries the technology kept getting deadlier while the death toll came back to earth. Luard singles out religious passion as the cause: It was above all the extension of warfare to civilians, who (especially if they worshipped the wrong god) were frequently regarded as expendable, which now increased the brutality of war and the level of casualties. Appalling bloodshed could be attributed to divine wrath. The duke of Alva had the entire male population of Naarden killed after its capture (1572), regarding this as a judgement of God for their hard-necked obstinacy in resisting; just as Cromwell later, having allowed his troops to sack Drogheda with appalling bloodshed (1649), declared that this was a "righteous judgement of God." Thus by a cruel paradox those who fought in the name of their faith were often less likely than any to show humanity to their opponents in war. — Steven Pinker

Singles Quotes By Huey Lewis

After 'Sports' came out in the fall of 1983, everything changed for me. Four of the album's singles became top-10 hits, and by the end of June in 1984, the album was No. 1 on the Billboard chart. It was quite a ride, and for the first time I had enough money to live the way I wanted. — Huey Lewis

Singles Quotes By Jeff Foxworthy

The thing about that singles apartment is you never had to clean it up ... until the day you got the security deposit back. You're arguing with the landlord ... 'No sir, the back door was missing when we moved in here! The pizzas were always on the ceiling!' — Jeff Foxworthy

Singles Quotes By Jon Landau

Sly Stone doesn't make good albums: only good records. His style is so infinite and revolves around so many crucial aspects that it has only come together perfectly on a handful of his singles. — Jon Landau

Singles Quotes By Agatha Christie

Juliet singles out Romeo. Desdemona claims Othello. They have no doubts, the young, no fear, no pride. — Agatha Christie

Singles Quotes By Mat McNerney

Most every album - and especially metal albums these days - are made in a way that you can grow tired of them very easily: They're made to be dissected and played on radio, released as singles or stuck on at parties. — Mat McNerney

Singles Quotes By Nicole Hardy

Singlehood is a problem to be solved. Even the bishops in singles wards are impatient with us, frustrated with the amount of time they spend away from their families, dealing with violations of the law of chastity. There's an easy solution, we're often reminded. "Just choose one," said one bishop to a male friend of mine, and indicated, like a game show host, the array of available women before him. — Nicole Hardy

Singles Quotes By Deborah Cox

They've got the singles and some people have burnt them from different web sites and stuff. So it was something that we talked about for a long, long time, and I just wanted to make sure that this remix album to be really special. — Deborah Cox

Singles Quotes By DJ Khaled

All my singles went platinum-plus.All my records and videos were groundbreaking. — DJ Khaled

Singles Quotes By Dave Wakeling

We found that if you played a bunch of punk singles in a row, people would dance like crazy and then get worn out and go somewhere else in the house. And if you played reggae all the time, people ended up leaning against the walls and nodding their head. But if you mixed it up, the floor got more and more packed, and the energy from the two types of music seemed to feed into each other, and the adrenaline from the punk, and the seductive sway of the reggae seemed to fit together. — Dave Wakeling

Singles Quotes By Sharyn McCrumb

Maybe staying single meant that you never had to grow up. — Sharyn McCrumb

Singles Quotes By Jeanette Winterson

I can tell by now that you are wondering whether I can be trusted as a narrator. Why didn't I dump Inge and head for a Singles Bar? The answer is her breasts. — Jeanette Winterson

Singles Quotes By Richard Patrick

Nirvana's amazing, but they're just never going to find another one, there's no artist development anymore, you're never going to have a U2, you're never going to have a Bruce Springsteen, those guys didn't make it off of their first single and real artists probably won't make it off of their first singles. — Richard Patrick

Singles Quotes By Terry Brooks

Couples and singles made a poor mix, and most of their friends had been couples. He hadn't done much to foster continuing friendships in any case, spending most of his time involved with his work and with his private, inviolate grief. He was not such good company anymore, and only Miles had had the patience and the perseverance to stay with him. — Terry Brooks

Singles Quotes By Elizabeth I

[I]n the end this shall be for me sufficient, that a marble stone shall declare that a Queen, having reigned such a time, lived and died a virgin. — Elizabeth I

Singles Quotes By Kid Rock

If people had good albums, they'd be buying albums. But people are buying singles because they only have good songs. — Kid Rock

Singles Quotes By John Oates

I may just keep releasing singles 'til I run out of music, which is kind of cool in a way - as long as people don't go, 'Oh my God, not another one!' — John Oates

Singles Quotes By Tom Verlaine

I always thought I was commercial. I always thought I was writing hit singles. These days, whatever's on the radio is considered commercial. People like what's on the radio, whatever it is. — Tom Verlaine

Singles Quotes By Michael Bassey Johnson

Don't ever think that you're a single in total freedom,but think of combating the forces of lust. — Michael Bassey Johnson

Singles Quotes By Tasha Alexander

At least as a single woman, I had time to pursue my own interests, read voraciously, and travel when opportunity presented. — Tasha Alexander

Singles Quotes By Coolio

I'm never doing a new album. I'll probably do nothing but singles. I'm as good as anybody out there lyrically and conceptually and can go toe to toe with the best of them throughout history. But I don't know how much longer I'll be doing it. It's not really fun anymore. — Coolio

Singles Quotes By Julieanne O'Connor

We will all experience the judgment of others when we fall in love. Love with your whole being anyway. — Julieanne O'Connor

Singles Quotes By Chubby Checker

Do you realize that I have had five albums in the Top 30. Elvis and The Beatles have never done that. I had five singles in the Top 5, I mean, no one's ever done that. — Chubby Checker

Singles Quotes By Shreya Ghoshal

The Indian music market is very film-oriented, and any other creative music venture doesn't receive enough support. I'd rather do singles and put them on my website. — Shreya Ghoshal

Singles Quotes By Warren Ellis

When I'm working in finite serials, I always think in terms of the entire book rather than the individual episode because, by far, the vaster sector of the project's lifespan will be in complete book form rather than the singles. — Warren Ellis

Singles Quotes By Mae West

I'm single because I was born that way. — Mae West

Singles Quotes By Big Sean

I usually sing a lot on my mixtapes. I sing a lot on songs that just really aren't singles. Even my first single, 'My Last,' which I feel like is more pop than anything - I was originally singing the chorus on there. I'm used to that. I've always had fresh melodies. — Big Sean

Singles Quotes By Sania Mirza

I miss singles terribly, but it is a choice I make because I don't feel I am good enough anymore. I don't want to be 100 odd in the world and still play for the heck of it. — Sania Mirza

Singles Quotes By Joe Perry

A lot of people don't listen to the albums. They just listen to the singles. — Joe Perry

Singles Quotes By Campbell Scott

I'm 47, I have gray hair, and yet people still come up to me on the street who are in their twenties, who weren't even born when 'Singles' was made ... well, they were pretty tiny, anyway ... and they say, 'Oh, I love that movie 'Singles.' And I always say, 'How old are you?' — Campbell Scott

Singles Quotes By Timothy Keller

Singles, too, must see the penultimate status of marriage. If single Christians don't develop a deeply fulfilling love relationship with Jesus, they will put too much pressure on their DREAM of marriage, and that will create pathology in their lives as well. — Timothy Keller

Singles Quotes By Daniel Nestor

Guys are bigger, stronger, just like in singles, serving bigger, returning better, and more athletic for sure. I think from my standpoint, just spending more time in the gym has enabled me to hang in there. — Daniel Nestor

Singles Quotes By Sam Yagan

I think of OkCupid as an online bar; a place where singles can go, have fun with each other and in the process hopefully meet new people, some of whom might turn into a romantic relationship. — Sam Yagan

Singles Quotes By Monica Johnson

Singles have goals, responsibilities, deadlines, events, and friends that occupy their time, as well they should. Nonetheless, before any goals are achieved, responsibilities are fulfilled, deadlines are met, events are attended or friends are visited, God's purpose should be accomplished. — Monica Johnson

Singles Quotes By Mitch Albom

At I Am My Brother's Keeper, there were no dues, no drives, no singles nights. Membership grew the old-fashioned way: a desperate need for God. — Mitch Albom

Singles Quotes By Elisabeth Elliot

My most earnest of all pleas to singles is abandonment of the self, surrender to Christ of all unfulfilled longings, an unequivocal willingness to receive whatever God assigns, and a determination to practice the sacrificial principle of Isaiah 58:10-11. Life becomes not only far simpler, but surprisingly joyful and free. — Elisabeth Elliot
