It's a tough thing to have to adapt to when you're a very good athlete and a lot of things that require physical agility and capabilities and all of a sudden you break your neck and you can no longer walk.

Mike Nyeholt

All of a sudden you?d be talking to someone at the store and they?d be like, have you heard of this North American Training Lodge?

Michelle Dunn

The market is in great shape. All of the sudden people are trying to get ahead of earnings and when companies miss by a penny they get pummeled for it. It's ridiculous.

Neil Hennessy

It was so amazing. There was hardly anyone on the beach and then all of a sudden people came rushing to help.

Mary Mcmillan

If teams above feel they are safe and we can get a couple of wins, then all of a sudden some pressure comes on that's out of their control. Then who knows what it might do.

Justin Marshall

I have struggled. If you do racing all of your life, and then all of a sudden it ends, what do you do? Do you go back to school, do you start a business? All we know how to do is race. That's all I've done since my dad put me in a go-kart at 4.

Jerry Nadeau

We were in coach No. 3. And all I could see is the car in front of us start going like this -- crazy -- and all of a sudden things started flying. Things were just flying all through the air.

Craig Roberts

All of the sudden the guy just hit it and took off.

Brian Watson

All of the sudden, he took off and I just had nowhere to go. It was a pretty serious dunk.

Ben Luber

I never expected the movie to become as big as it has. I thought that we'd be lucky if a handful of people outside of our small group would get to see it. Everyone involved with the making of this film was shocked that all of a sudden, lines from the movie had become lines that people would say to each other in everyday life. None of us expected that.

Aaron Ruell

All of a sudden there's a big stimulus to the economy - interest rates are down, money supply has grown and oil prices are lower, ... From a macro perspective, the evidence states that the economy will recover, perhaps as early as the first quarter of next year.

Bob Turner

Real progress in understanding nature is rarely incremental. All important advances are sudden intuitions, new principles, new ways of seeing.

Marilyn Ferguson

The big mistake that men make is that when they turn thirteen or fourteen, and all of a sudden they've reached puberty, they believe that they like women. Actually, you're just horny. It doesn't mean that you like women any more at twenty-one than you did at ten.

Jules Feiffer

Millions of Americans rely every month on the agencies we serve. Millions of others are living less than one paycheck away from hunger. When people hit sudden hard times including illness, loss of a job, or disruption in health insurance, they are forced to turn to the America's Second Harvest Network for help.

Robert Forney

I was thinking I probably needed a couple more [birdies] on the back, but turns out I didn't, ... All of a sudden, I'm sitting there at 18 and thinking, `Well, Nick Price has to make birdie to tie me' ... and he knocked it over the green and made bogey.

Lanny Wadkins

Five years ago, there was the crossover energy where all of a sudden, 'Time Magazine' and 'Newsweek' were saying things like the 'Latino Wave was coming.' But it didn't really happen that way.

Gabriel Abaroa

We plan to start our playoff, if we have one, on 18. And then play 10 and 18, and stay in that rotation. And it will still be sudden death.

Hootie Johnson

It's just like a hitter. You start thinking so much and things start to happen and then all of a sudden your game plan is out the window and you're trying something else, which you shouldn't do.

John Rodriguez

We were ready to go to Indonesia to help over there ... when all of a sudden Katrina hit. The real mission statement, I guess you would say for Morrell, is to assist in the reconstruction of devastated areas throughout the world.

Merrill Osmond

We have seen a tremendous amount of cargo coming into the port. It's sort of a miniature major port all of a sudden down there.

Robert Cross

All of a sudden just out of nowhere, this big blue streak jumps up onto the table and goes flying by me, and I looked up, and it was Antonio Davis jumping up on the table and jumping by. And it scared the heck out of me.

Steve Scott

It's not the speeding, it's the sudden stopping that's the thing.

Frank Hargrove

The good thing about it is we've practiced with Anthony. He got an opportunity to play in the second half. It's not like we're in Week 9 or 10 and all of a sudden you throw him in there.

Derrick Mason

I don't think it's worth it. We invested so much money, and all of a sudden, we met the opposition at the public hearing. I wish we had a public hearing first.

Sam Varano

It's tough, but you can't do anything about it except put up or shut up the next time you play them, ... Even this year, they came in here and we were beating up on them and -- boom -- all of a sudden they sneak it away from us in the last six minutes. We've got to find a way to solve that.

Scott Schultz

If they have to look up and throw, they don't want to change their style all of a sudden. They have to be able to adjust quick and I talked to them about that.

Dave Colley

What's so great about sports is we can teach them the basics of any sport in one day. And in one day, all of a sudden they realize they can be active for the rest of their lives.

Kirk Bauer

I am saddened to have to report that, following emergency surgery that we had hoped would correct a sudden deterioration in her condition, my niece Susan Ann Catherine Torres has passed away after only five short weeks with us.

Justin Torres

If I ever marry, it will be on a sudden impulse - as a man shoots himself.

H. L. Mencken

Too many times, you read too many instances where relationships develop and all of a sudden an officer is going to do something that's wrong on behalf of the inmates such as being in stuff he should not be having. We just wanted to cut that off before it even gets to that.

Jon Rogers

As we look back at it, none of us would have anticipated that we would come back as fast as we did. One of the primary reasons you can cite for that sudden rise really was the emergence of Jeff Garcia. I mean, if he doesn't play like he plays, we might be five years in the rebuilding.

Terry Donahue

I think the moral majority and religious right have been shrinking and having not quite as loud a voice in America, and all of a sudden people are coming to their own realizations going, 'Joe down the street is gay and he's a great guy.'

Jason Priestley

As I look back on it, I know our season ended the day J.V. died because I know none of us got over it. You just lose focus. All of a sudden you find out in some ways how childish you've been in the way you've devoted your whole life to this game. Then all of a sudden it hits you that there are bigger things in play.

Dan Dierdorf

When they see images of guys like Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Ernie Banks and Roy Campanella, whom they recognize as household major-league stars, and realize they came out of the Negro Leagues, all of a sudden that mindset changes.

Bob Kendrick

We decided we would offer lotteries to those charities on the basis that we would give them as many as was needed as long as it didn't exceed their voluntary income, because that sudden influx of funds would create problems for them.

Andrew Williams

You know we're the only city -- I think we're the only big city in America ... there may be an exception or two ... that women are running the Police Department, Fire Department and our emergency services. That's why I feel so safe. And I'll tell you why. Women put their egos aside. You get these guys in uniform, all of a sudden it's their way or no way.

Gavin Newsom
