I’m trying to make work that is reflective and is encouraging of reflection.
We need to make sure our government programs encourage work, not dependence.
Thanks to everyone who’s encouraged and supported my work over the years.
I will continue to work with the Republican Party to try to encourage primaries.
The government should now launch an initiative to encourage people to join the social work profession.
We want to encourage those who are able to work, no question.
I can’t work with people who aren’t fun loving. I don’t encourage such people.
So I’m going to go on and work on preserving the ozone layer, encouraging everyone to recycle.
In Congress, I’ll work hard to encourage investment in education, particularly with respect to technology and bridging the digital divide.
I’m somebody who deserves to be supported and encouraged to continue my work because I have a lot to give.
I always encourage employees to feel free to raise any issues that prevent them from getting good work done.
The solution is to change the cake recipe, and that’s the way it is with government. We can start adopting policies that work and that encourage economic growth. If you got incentives for encouraging big business development but not small or medium business development, it’s not going to work. It needs to work for all three.
I’m nearly always at home at the weekends; that’s important for every working woman today, not just me. I don’t encourage people to come in at the weekend and work; I encourage people to go home and create great families.
I encourage all players to work to be their best, which includes looking for opportunities beyond the playing field.
I try to get people thinking, to consider their pasts and presents, ultimately encouraging them and giving them the tools to embrace the work of reshaping their lives.
My parents were able to pay our expenses, but not for education. We were encouraged to work hard in school and get scholarships.
Short fiction encourages experimentation, and it’s fun to play with form and try experiments that may or may not work out.
I think there are many things that we can do today to make it a better work environment that is more supportive and encouraging of diversity.
In America we have big issues with education – in impoverished communities especially. I work with Teach For All, and so we’re encouraging more people to get into teaching.
I want children to be glued to interactive books that encourage singing and dancing. I feel when kids work together it brings about a different energy.
I would still encourage somebody, if they wanted to make a movie, to just go take a movie camera. That’s clearly been shown to work.
I’ve been a huge fan of Chris Martin forever; it’d be awesome to work with him. He’s really kind, and he’s been really encouraging when we’ve met.
I think it’s important to have flexibility to work wherever is best for you. I actually encourage people to work at the cafe – or from home or wherever works best for them.
We work as a team. I think having the individual being shown as a star actually creates problems internally. We encourage all our investors to work as a team for the benefit of the founders.
Family-supportive policies, which enable women to remain and progress in paid employment and encourage men to take their fair share of care work, are crucial to achieving gender equality at work.
My attitude toward graduate students was different, I must say. I used graduate students as colleagues: I gave them the best problems to work on, and I encouraged them.
My dad has an incredible passion for living life, and he’s really, really funny, so he definitely encourages me to enjoy all aspects of life. He’s very proud of me and definitely encourages my career path, and we have a good time talking about work.
I’ve experienced first-hand the wonderful work organizations like J Bar J do for young people in Central Oregon and I am encouraged that the federal government is taking an active role in the Cascade Youth and Family Center.
Be passionate about your work and your life’ was instilled in me by my mother Dada, who was a potter. She also introduced me to the arts and encouraged me to embrace the new.
I don’t think we need to extend unemployment any further without paying for it, and without making some modifications such as turning it into a loan at some point. It then encourages people to go back to work.
My work is to reach people with ideas, hopes, dreams, encouragement, insight, and revelation. That’s what an actor wants to do.
When I had worked on my first book, I had readily shown bits and pieces to everyone – for encouragement, to force myself to write.
In the five months I wrote the final draft of ‘The Association of Small Bombs,’ I never fell out of the book. The world was real to me: plausible and powerful.
By 2013, at the age of 29, I was failing. I had left two good jobs in succession to complete a novel I’d been tooling around with since 2009, had enrolled in a graduate programme in Texas, as far away from home as possible, to finish it – and yet: what did I have to show for it after five years of work?
I think people have turned terrorists into these larger-than-life devils and so are unable to write about them in the obvious way, which is as human, petty, bumbling.
In some ways, the best novel about terrorism, though it’s not a novel, is ‘The Looming Tower’ by Lawrence Wright or ‘Perfect Soldiers’ by Terry McDermott.
It’s getting worse under Prime Minister Modi. The economic miracle has failed, to a degree, and people are reaching back to a kind of imagined Hindu past for a feeling of pride. And that feeling of pride necessarily comes from denying any kind of Muslim heritage. People my age seem to be becoming illiberal in a way that I’m surprised by.
If India hadn’t become a troubled space for me, somehow I wouldn’t have any reason to write about it. So the fact that it’s a lost love, or something, is why I keep thinking about it obsessively.
Every time a blast happens, people ask, ‘But why would someone do this?’ Weirdly, it hasn’t been answered well anywhere – neither in fiction nor non-fiction.
