10 QUOTES WITH «DEMANDING»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word demanding.
1
Peter Ackroyd
Why should a novelist not also be a historian? To force unnatural divisions within the English language is to work against its capacious and accommodating nature. To expect a writer to produce only novels, or only histories, is equivalent to demanding from a composer that he or she write only string quartets or piano sonatas.
2
Fede Alvarez
I'm pretty demanding with myself and my work, and I always put a lot of pressure on myself. I try to do the best job I can every time.
3
Robert Anderson
I expect we will become more demanding as citizens.
4
Roger Bannister
I had always wanted to become a neurologist, which is one of the most demanding vocations in medicine. Where do you stop, after all, with the brain? How does it function? What are its limits? The work seems unending.
5
Anna C. Brackett
He who receives a great many letters demanding answer, sees himself as if engaged in a hopeless struggle of one man against the rest of the world.
6
Rory Bremner
I'm much more used to the TV shows, which are demanding to write and perform but very fulfilling.
7
Bryan Burrough
Just being able to get paid to do something you love is a wonderful thing. That said, a writer's daily routine, unless you're Dominick Dunne, isn't exactly glamorous. Much of it amounts to drudgery, staring at a computer screen all day in a room by yourself, juggling nouns and verbs to make a demanding editor happy.
8
P. C. Cast
I've seen a big shift, especially in my classroom, with women standing up and demanding respect. That's in every woman, whether 16, 26, 56.
9
Tom Chatfield
The best teachers, one hopes, don't shout at their students - because they are skilled at wooing as well as demanding the best efforts of others. For the ancient Greeks and Romans, this wooing was a sufficiently fine art in itself to be the central focus of education.
10
Jackie Cooper
I hope this series is good work, but it is in the half-hour medium, which is limited to a kind of mediocrity that sponsors are just dying to have right now, and the public, for some reason, is unconsciously demanding.
