Anytime you’re with somebody, you become a reflection of that person. I believe the first five years of our relationship was me grooming her, getting her tough and getting her ready for all of this and how to deal with it. The last was just her being a strong Black woman who has her man’s back.
Twenty-five years ago people could be excused for not knowing much, or doing much, about climate change. Today we have no excuse. No more can it be dismissed as science fiction; we are already feeling the effects.
Michael Gove is an incredibly talent guy and a Brexiteer. But he has been telling all of us for the last five years that he doesn’t want to [be the Prime Minister] and he doesn’t think he’s got it in him to do it so his conversion on the road to Damascus has come pretty late.
Sarah Palin is now the guy who hangs out in the high school parking lot, showing off his car, five years after he graduated.
My whole thing is I want to have a backup plan because maybe I won’t get another acting job after ‘Fame‘, maybe I’ll want to give up on acting in five years or whatever and I want to have something else that I enjoy just as much as I enjoy acting.
I had no idea I was hot. I was just like, “Oh, this is normal. You make two movies a year. This is easy.” And of course, I have since learned that acting has its periods of unemployment, and ups and downs. The first five years were really good to me.
You know, I’m really bad on the computer. I’m really lame, man. I read and hang out with my kids. I’ve turned into a five year old.

I’m sure you’re aware, with the time it takes to put these books together, everything can suddenly start coming out at once even though I wrote anything between one and five years ago.
But I was always a bit of a gypsy, anyway. I spent five years at Oklahoma State, five years at Miami and moved on after winning the national championship, and five years with the Cowboys. So, I was ready to move on. We won back-to-back Super Bowls, and I felt that I accomplished what I wanted to accomplish.
I never attempt to make money on the stock market. I buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.
I always wanted to be a scientist, I always thought I’d be a scientist, that was the narrative I was carrying around. I worked in a neuroscience lab as an undergraduate and then after, almost five years in total, but I realized I just wasn’t good at science. I didn’t have the discipline for it.
I’ve been doing magic since I was five years old, and when I was trying to get acting gigs, I found I could make a good living at it. It’s great to kind of shake the cobwebs off and get the feeling of a live audience again. I love close-up magic, the card stuff, the coin stuff, the really up-close David Blaine stuff.
I’ve been married fifty-five years and I’ve been home three weeks.

I stopped directing in 2001 for – oh, damn – four or five years, until I did the TV series ‘Masters Of Horror.’ I had been working steadily as a director since 1970. That’s a long time. I was burned out.
Everything has a trend to it; I don’t care if it’s appliances or engines. I always ask: What has a company done in the past five years that somebody’s noticed?
I’ve been reading reviews of my stories for twenty-five years, and can’t remember a single useful point in any of them, or the slightest good advice. The only reviewer who ever made an impression on me was Skabichevsky, who prophesied that I would die drunk in the bottom of a ditch.
I’m getting paid to do what I got in trouble for in the 7th grade. I absolutely love what I do and thank my lucky stars for twenty-five years of full-time employment in this business.

A lot of artists make art for five years, some artists make art for ten years, a few make art for fifteen: very few do it until they die.
The reality is, the way we’ve used phones and the amount that we’ve used phones has changed radically in the past five years. When phones were first marketed in the 1990s, it cost, for car phones, $3000 to buy a phone and the average person did not use it that much. They were very, very expensive.
I think there is a great deal to the idea of not doing a thing, but that when you do a thing, you don’t do it in five minutes or in five hours, but in five years.
I love the idea that I planned my career. I did not. It started out by getting invitations from artists that I really love and respect, to share a stage… I’ve been very lucky in that I haven’t had to create a five-year plan. It’s evolved.
It took me five years on Lyndon Johnson, ten years on the Kennedys, six years on the Roosevelts. Inevitably, you get shaped by the people that you’re thinking about during that period of time.
When I tied the record five years in a row, even over in Europe, it wasn’t really talked about. It is disap-pointing because it is one of the toughest things to do in sports.

Our world is so glutted with useless information, images, useless images, sounds, all this sort of thing. It’s a cacophony, it’s like a madness I think that’s been happening in the past twenty-five years. And I think anything that can help a person sit in a room alone and not worry about it is good.
The average life spans of many bands are not that long, up to five years if they are lucky.
We were little children, four or five years old, but they were all around the house and they made us look epic, like we were part of some story being told. My mom would have this woman come to our house and take photos of us. She did a photo book of us as well when I was one. I still have it.
[P]opulation, when unchecked, goes on doubling itself every twenty-five years, or increases in a geometrical ratio. … [T]he means of subsistence, under circumstances the most favorable to human industry, could not possibly be made to increase faster than in an arithmetical ratio.
I’ve been a member of the Labour Party sixty five years, and I remain in it, but I think it’s all about campaigning for justice and peace, and if you do that, you get a lot of support.
I have always been a critic of government policy. I was in government for more than five years. Before that I was a critic. Within the government I was a critic, pushing for reform and always at odds with power brokers within the party.

I played the best role I’ve ever seen on TV or film in the last five years. It was hugely gratifying.
The first five years as a writer, I didn’t know how to write at all. I couldn’t write my way out of a white paper bag. And yet, I did some remarkable things. And later on, there were periods where I got this mission to find an articulate voice with rewrites and all. There were periods where I was as dense as Faulkner.

Twenty-five years ago nobody knew much about white sharks.
At the end of drama school, I made a contract with myself: I’d try acting for five years. I was 26. I had already spent eight years working in restaurants and gas stations. So I had seen enough small businesses to understand that that’s what acting is: a small business.
When you look at Harlem – and I lived there almost five years – most of the people who live in Harlem are transplants. They migrate to Harlem from another place. A lot of them are from the south, so they bring those southern influences with them.
Law and Order’ is completely story-driven and completely characterless, really. If you do that format for five years and you’re an actor, you’re bound to get bored. It wears on you. And it was really wearing on me.
… it took me five years of going right into the mouth of the lion to learn to be at ease onstage … if you deal with an audience as a bunch of people having a great time, you’ll have a much bettrer time as a performer
Via money Europe could become political in five years
I could hear Dean, blissful and blabbering and frantically rocking. Only a guy who’s spent five years in jail can go to such maniacal helpless extremes; beseeching at the portals of the soft source, mad with a completely phsycial realization of the origins of life-bliss; blindly seeking to return the way he came
Wow. Losing 95 percent of your audience in just five years. That basically makes Obama the NBC of presidents.

The pleasure and sadness of youth is that the speed of its passing is never thought about; and so you say that you will do this or that in a year, in five years, only to wake up one morning to realize that what you thought was infinitely prolonged has ended.
The beautiful simplicity of our faith is that it distills down to the exact same bottom line for both the brilliant theologian and the five-year-old child: love God and love each other – period.

No good play is a success; fine writing and high morals are useless on the stage. I have been scribbling twaddle for thirty-five years to suit the public taste, and I should know.
People whose terms go for five years or longer, like FCC commissioners. That’s a higher standard. Then district judges, who are appointed for a lifetime but can be overruled. Then Court of Appeals judges. They’re not the highest level, but they’re almost the final word. And then, of course, the Supreme Court.
Becoming a vampire is forever. You don’t get to change your mind about it later. For me, I think that’s one of the big drawbacks with anything that’s permanent. How do you know how you’re going to feel in five years or 10 years? Even with a tattoo.
Five years of Republicans‘ failed energy policies have resulted in Americans paying twice as much at the pump as they did in 2001, while big oil companies make triple the profits.

Hiro is a talented drifter. This is the kind of lifestyle that sounded romantic to him as recently as five years ago.

I feel like I’m a stay-at-home mom, which I was for the five years before this. She’s absolutely been my focus. That’s the choice I made. Desperate Housewives is perfect for me. I get to go back to work and still be able to take my daughter to school and pick her up.
You should have felt the buzz the moment all five of us got together in the same room for the first time again. We all started laughin’вЂ”it was like the five years had never passed. We knew we’d made the right move.
