I was very pleased that the positive things about me and my game outshone the aggressive style of play I use. I would never tone that down, because I believe in that style of play, and I believe that you can play rough on the court and still be a good sport.
During this period at the Department of Education, my working relationship with Judge Thomas was positive.
The only positive finding which could be drawn from the first series, was the conclusion that the relationships obviously had a more complicated lay-out than had been thought, for the effects were so varied that no obedience to any law could be discovered.

You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.
The only way that we’re going to feel secure in this country again and that we’re going to feel good about ourselves is if we use these systems we’ve put into place to create positive change around the world. I really believe we can do that.
I really believe that’s one of the many reasons that God had put me right in the middle of the Backstreet Boys. There are so many stars today that don’t realize the impact they have on young people. Being a superstar is great, as long as you can be a positive role model.
A lot of times people look at the negative side of what they feel they can’t do. I always look on the positive side of what I can do.
When the media defines something, you have to question: Is it the definition that you want applied to your culture? I’m trying to determine who’s leaving the legacy, and if the legacy that is being left is a positive one.
The overall view of the human genome project has been one of great excitement and positive press, but there are people who have concerns that are quite reasonable, and they are frightened of things they don’t understand.
The different Ministries have to work more on the promotion of the country, to build Kosovo’s public image. Concrete projects must be assembled, in order to activate our businessmen to have more contacts. We have to create a positive image about ourselves.

But, I would be naive not to recognize the number of musicians who tell me they have been influenced by me and sight me – as well as Alex and Neil – as a musician who has been a positive influence on their playing.
It’s also a question of finding good material and interesting roles. I’m not the only actress out there, and good parts just don’t fall into your lap that easily. But I like most of the films I’ve made recently and so I’m pretty positive about the future.
We don’t have enough support for maternal leave and the kinds of things that some of the European countries do. So we still make it hard on women to go into the work force and feel that they can be good at work but then doing the most important job, which is raising your children in a responsible and positive way.
I have long been a supporter of the Head Start program because each and every year I witness the dramatic positive impact that early intervention services have on children’s lives in my congressional district.

I have grown up but that should be a positive thing. When you look at a photo album it’s lovely to remember being so young but it’s also good to know you grew up!
Men are liars. We’ll lie about lying if we have to. I’m an algebra liar. I figure two good lies make a positive.
Kant introduced the concept of the negative into philosophy. Would it not also be worthwhile to try to introduce the concept of the positive into philosophy?
I would love to hear all types of Christian artists played all over the world. I’d love to hear good, positive mainstream music played all over the place. I’d love to be able to bring music together. But I have not deserted Christ. I have not deserted my faith.
The President, in talking about freedom and democracy, is sparking a wave of very positive democratic sentiment that might help us override both Islamic fundamentalism that has formed in that region, and also some of the hatred for our policies of invading Iraq.
I hate banks. They do nothing positive for anybody except take care of themselves. They’re first in with their fees and first out when there’s trouble.

Well, I think the president is going to do well in terms of his influence for positive change here in the Congress, making sure that we don’t overspend, making sure that we spend for only those programs that are justified.
Congress must take responsibility for a new positive direction – an innovative agenda that will lead to a more secure America. Secure communities, secure economies, and a secure quality of life.
An investigator starts research in a new field with faith, a foggy idea, and a few wild experiments. Eventually the interplay of negative and positive results guides the work. By the time the research is completed, he or she knows how it should have been started and conducted.
His tenacity is unmatched in my opinion. Incredible how someone could have suffered that long and come back out of prison with such a good heart and positive things to say and do.
That’s what makes Linux so good: you put in something, and that effort multiplies. It’s a positive feedback cycle.
Positive thinking is the key to success in business, education, pro football, anything that you can mention. I go out there thinking that I’m going to complete every pass.
I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from both the secular and Christian markets. People seem to be receiving it with open arms and hearts, and are interested in the stories I want to share about my relationship with God and my faith.
It was great fun. We had gone on tour in between the sessions and reconnected with the audience and got a lot of energy back from them, a lot of positive energy.
There’s a lot of peer pressure to not do positive stories out of Iraq… I think there’s a sense that the administration got a pass during the hot days of war and now that the war is over it’s time to even out the deck somewhat.
I have always viewed the mission of Wikipedia to be much bigger than just creating a killer website. We’re doing that of course, and having a lot of fun doing it, but a big part of what motivates us is our larger mission to affect the world in a positive way.
