Until the manager says otherwise, I will just have to go about my business and hopefully do what I do best.

Stan Glowiak

Although nobody wants to have a dry year, it's really beneficial for the waterfowl habitat to be dry. That's really good for the soil, trees and other plants to be dry.

I just love walking to home plate every night, ... We're all competitors, you know? The player wants to get a hit. The manager wants to win. I want to get it right. To tell you the truth, I just love that competition.

Bruce Froemming

With what Doncaster offer and the way they attack, we feel Jon is a stronger defensive option than Dave. It's all about timing as well - Jon wants to go out and prove a few critics wrong, but he knows he still has a few things to work on.

Mike Umaga

I had a guess what it might be about, but this took me completely by surprise. And he delivers a play, as he puts it, before he truly knows what it's about.

Nicholas Hytner

Nevada has passed more and more laws to become the Delaware of the West, ... This type of situation can serve as a wake-up call that we like their business but not if it's going to deceive people. I don't think Nevada wants to be a haven for crooks.

Barbara Buckley

No. 1 is dealing with their teachers; they feel like say a teacher is wrong - no one wants to believe them or that the teacher is always right. We teach them that the teacher might not always be right, but that isn't a battle that you can win by getting up and acting out in class.

Kareem Evans

(The post-meet) was no big deal, just two great teams competing, but we're happy with the results of the race. Everyone wants to come out first but only one team can.

Johnny Barnes

He's got something that [agency heads] don't have, and that is immediate access to the president if the president wants to get this job done. And believe me, the presidential cache will go a long way on this one.

Porter Goss

He's a great coach, and he's going to make you better. He asks every player to believe in what he's teaching and believe in the system. He's such an exciting coach, you see him jumping on the sidelines and stuff. As a player, you like to see him get excited because he's excited for you and he wants to win, and that's been exciting for us. You just want to do what he asks.

Carl Elliott

Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.

Leslie Ludy

Bob Huggins, a lot of times, is misunderstood. He's someone who cares a great deal about his players. He wants to see them do well and he really goes the extra yard for players.

Rick Pitino

It would be huge, no doubt about it. Everybody wants to play this tour. That's what we're all out here to do.

Gavin Coles

No one wants to use 'national unity' anymore because it was used for years by the government to deny that there was a problem. They can't use 'secularism' because it's a dirty word. So they use 'citizenship,' but that means different things to different people.

Hossam Bahgat

This happened in July. If the downtown hotel wants to charge a nightly rate in the upper 10 or 20 percent of hotel rates, that doesn't bode well. I have to decide if I want them on our roster and tie up their inventories if I might not be able to sell them.

Briana Mackey

The government really wants to slow down investment, but it can't control local governments who have a big incentive to invest more because it leads to higher economic growth in their regions and promotion for local officials.

Shannon Staub

She wants to see the goals in the bill become a reality.

Brian Canavan

It's about heart and passion. It's about who wants it more.

Kevin Chapman

This is not a ghost building that no one wants. This is a prime piece of real estate.

Darrell Daniels

The market's really got some power to it. It's strong across the board and there really aren't any big stock stories causing it. There's a lot of money out there that wants to be put to work and you're seeing that today. I think it's very healthy.

Brian Finnerty

Every year it's like a straight line. Last year our traffic increased 60%. Now we're supported by ads. The consumer wants information, especially about genre films, even anime. We're very democratic. Even though genre films get the most hits, even if a movie opens in only one theater, we still cover it.

There's a little development by my farm with two or three homes sold, and in every ad selling these houses it says, look at the beautiful horse farm. If it was a hog farm or chicken farm or dairy farm they wouldn't mention it. No one would want to live next to it.

Ronald Green

If you listen to Donny Hathaway, he had a lot of jazz elements in the way he sang, ... For me, the two styles borrow from each other so much that sometimes it's hard for me to make a distinction. When you hear Lalah sing the combination, that's when she really shines -- when she's allowed to dip into her jazz when she wants to and then get soulful and do the R&B thing.

Marcus Miller

He wants you to excel, ... Do well in the classroom as well as on the field.

Jeff Mullins

First we need to identify the needs and wants of the community.

Mayor Dorothy Larson

We didn't know whether or not he wanted to come. We want somebody that wants to come to your organization, and that was our big question. That's why we wanted to talk to him for ourselves today. He said he wants to play and he wants to be in Sacramento. That's good enough for us.

He's very depressed about all of this. He wants to come back. This is his mother and she needs support, too.

Awilda Cordero

I don't ever want to fit my music into one genre, because every song needs to develop the way it wants to. It has to have its own feel and vibe. I'm noticing that songs can be way across the spectrum and still fit together and tell a story.

Chloe Day

He wants to thank everybody who has sent him good wishes. He's grateful for the support and understands the criticism.

Phil Hughes

[She also wants a sixth-year exemption from the NCAA, so she can return to the Lobos.] We have 125 great guys on this team, and I haven't had one single incident, ... That's because of the standard  Coach [Rocky] Long sets here for behavior. There's no b.s.

Katie Hnida

That's what he can do when he wants to. When he plays like he did tonight, we're tough.

Kip Rhoten

If a deputy was to go before a judge and say this person did this to me, a judge would sign a warrant. But because it's Paul Howard, the district attorney, nobody wants to touch it.

Dennis Scheib

Waivers make it more difficult. No manager wants to lose a player for nothing. To lose a player after you've invested all this time and money in him is like cutting your nose off to spite your face.

Trent Yawney

He's high-energy, a 60-minute guy. He calls for the ball, he wants the ball every single snap. He's always looking to make a big play, make something happen with the ball. He wants to get in the end zone; that's his goal every time he steps on the field.

Brent Alexander

Nobody wants to sit down against Danvers. That's tournament-style hockey. We've got to get ready so we can try to finish the Northeastern Conference schedule undefeated.

The crude market isn't tight at all. OPEC and non-OPEC production is rising and if anyone wants, they can buy additional oil from the SPR.

Sarah Emerson

At the beginning of the season Shauna handed me a list of her goals and she has accomplished every single one of them. She's an extremely hard worker, she's motivated and very determined. It's always nice to have an athlete that wants it as much as you want it for them.

Shannon Hoffmann

We think she will be racing tomorrow but we will make a final decision at 9am tomorrow. Of course, she wants to race - she was crying when she missed the downhill - but we'll have to wait and see. Between health and racing, health is more important.

Vedran Pavlek

It's the top executive who wants to live the way he lives elsewhere--in a fine, fine building, in an extraordinary living space.

Barbara Stewart

I think what she needs and likes and wants the most is not so much the competitiveness. What she probably likes more about Samford is the community and social aspects, not the competitiveness. Though she'll be competitive when she needs to be.

Mike Gruber

Stop trying to treat music like it's a tennis shoe, something to be branded. If the music industry wants to save money, they should take a look at some of their six-figure executive expense accounts. All those lawsuits can't be cheap, either.

Jeff Tweedy

He is working on all sorts of projects. Whether he wants to eventually get involved in the coaching side I just don't know. He is enjoying his time off.

Oleksander Dergachev

This is the public piece of the puzzle because they will be public buildings. Whether they stay or whether they go and where they are built is going to be reflective of what the community wants.

Kirk Zoellner

The husband who wants a happy marriage should learn to keep his mouth shut and his checkbook open.

Groucho Marx

Our life is a book that writes itself and whose principal themes sometimes escape us. We are like characters in a novel who do not always understand what the author wants of them.

Julian Green

A scrimmage is not the same as an official game but at the same time it was physical because nobody wants to lose. They're preparing themselves as a team and players are trying to win spots. We have an obligation to always give 100 percent and take everything seriously. Both sides were going in with a lot of intensity but it was no more than that.

Francisco Palencia

As an insider, I'm seeing that there is genuine momentum. The networks want it, the league wants it, and most important the fans want it.

Steve Tisch

I know it's killing Lindsey to watch these games from the bench. She's a fighter and won't give up. I know there is nothing else in the world she wants more than to be on that court right now.

Sue Fiero

Rachel just has a no-nonsense attitude. She always comes to practice, and always wants to get better. She hates losing, which is something I love in a player. She's a very good athlete with a good arm, and you can tell she is only going to get better as she gets more mature.
