Text Versions
I’d love to do well on a big weekend with people watching and cheering, of course. But it’s not fair to create an expectation level before I know what is realistic. I want to finish as well as possible. Is that top 20? Top 15? Top 25? You just have to play it by ear.  (Finishing Well Quotes) You finish a movie and you think, there, you’ve done it, really well, or best you can. But if you watch it, you see it was just bollocks.  (Finishing Well Quotes) Well, once we finish something, I can’t really listen to it because all I hear are problems  (Finishing Well Quotes) Well, usually when I finish one character, I’m looking for a role that’s really different  (Finishing Well Quotes) You only get so much time to do something that you enjoy or love to do. If you can continue doing it, you might as well, because I don’t want to live in regret. I don’t want to be the person sitting behind a desk, wondering, ‘Did I do it right, did I finish it off, did I really give it my all?’  (Finishing Well Quotes) My legacy doesn’t matter. It isn’t important that I be remembered. It’s important that when I stand before the Lord, he says, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’ I want to finish strong  (Finishing Well Quotes) Like my hero Virginia Woolf, I do lack confidence. I always find that the novel I’m finishing, even if it’s turned out fairly well, is not the novel I had in my mind. I think a lot of writers must negotiate this, and if they don’t admit it, they’re not being honest  (Finishing Well Quotes) You know that feeling when you finish a final exam and you think, ‘I never want to do that again’? Well I have the same feeling when I finish a novel. Each time I say, ‘I think I may retire now’ and then after six months the ideas start to churn again. I could never stop  (Finishing Well Quotes) You know the question: ‘How do you get to Carnegie Hall?’ Answer: ‘Practise?’ Well, in my case, I got there by not practising. I didn’t finish my music degree. And when I got into the pop world, I decided not to conform because I figured that the point of being an artist was that you shouldn’t be like anyone else  (Finishing Well Quotes) I was an educated girl. I’d done very well in school. I had a good point average and graduated from USC as an English teacher. My dad didn’t even finish high school  (Finishing Well Quotes) The important thing is that we now have the tools to sequence all kinds of animals and plants and microbes - as well as humans. It is not important that we didn’t actually finish the human sequence yet  (Finishing Well Quotes) The Bush boom is alive and well. It’s finishing up its sixth splendid year with many more years to come  (Finishing Well Quotes) To finish a work? To finish a picture? What nonsense! To finish it means to be through with it, to kill it, to rid it of its soul, to give it its final blow the coup de grace for the painter as well as for the picture  (Finishing Well Quotes) If my training goes well and according to plan I feel that I am capable of a top 8 finish in Athens. It will be a very difficult and technical course which will be to my advantage  (Finishing Well Quotes) Beginning well is a momentary thing; finishing well is a lifelong thing  (Finishing Well Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
