10 QUOTES WITH «WE'RE»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word we're.
1
Kurt Angle
It took me a few years to explain to my colleagues and my mentors and the people that I looked up to and I wrestled that I'm not in wrestling anymore. I'm in sports entertainment. Pro' wrestling doesn't mean that we're saying we're a step up above amateur wrestling, because there's nothing above Olympic wrestling.
2
Margaret Atwood
We have to rethink our whole energy approach, which is hard to do because we're so dependent on oil, not just for fuel but also plastic. If plastic vanished, there would be total chaos. We have to think quite carefully about using oil and its derivatives, because it's not going to be around forever.
3
David Axelrod
But obviously, we're looking for all good ideas to help deal with our long-term debt problem. This is something that is going to affect our economy. It affects our kids. And we need to deal with it.
4
Charlie Bell
We're not perfect, but we want to do the right thing.
5
Mark Bittman
Thanks to farm subsidies, the fine collaboration between agribusiness and Congress, soy, corn and cattle became king. And chicken soon joined them on the throne. It was during this period that the cycle of dietary and planetary destruction began, the thing we're only realizing just now.
6
Shelley Moore Capito
What I find with my fellow female members of Congress is that we tend to work very hard. While we're very focused, we can also multitask a lot better.
7
Mark Carwardine
China is responsible for a lot of the major conservation issues we're facing. It's the main market for rhino horn. Tigers are being killed for tiger bone wine. They're driving the tropical timber trade and illegal logging in Indonesia, and the trade in tropical reef fish.
8
Wilt Chamberlain
We're all fascinated by the numbers, as we were about the 100 points.
9
Cassandra Clare
We as artists are actively encouraged - by other authors, your agent, publisher, and society - not to think about money, strategy, how to manage your career, how to create a brand, because we're supposed to focus on the art.
10
Thad Cochran
We have to make sure that we are a force for peace and stability in the world, and that we're prepared to defend freedom and the security of the American people.
