I mean, comedy's hard. If you go back and look at the first season of Seinfeld, it's a work in progress and that's what happens. It just take time for people to figure each other out, and figure out timing, and to develop creatively with the writers.
— Zachary Knighton
I found I had the ability to do comedy. My timing was really inborn.
— Yvonne De Carlo
Uniting two halves of one soul is inevitable, but timing depends upon your level of spirituality. When the time is ripe, true soul mates find one another even if they are worlds apart- whether physically, on opposite sides of the globe, or spiritually, with contrasting lifestyles and backgrounds. Here's wishing you the courage to keep growing so that you may know " or continue to know " the blessing of oneness.
— Yehuda Berg
About time, what I really learned from studying English is: time is different with timing. I understand the difference of these two words so well. I understand falling in love with the right person in the wrong timing could be the greatest sadness in a person's entire life.

Love is all a matter of timing. It's no good meeting the right person too soon or too late.
— Wong Kar-wai

— William Rosenberg
With all of my films that are on DVD and Blu-ray, I have spent weeks with them in a color timing room. Just changing or enhancing them. I have been desaturating the color. Sometimes I will make a scene bluer or redder. I do use the new medium. I believe in it.
— William Friedkin
When George VI - displaying a flair for timing that was utterly absent in his lifetime - upped and died, the way was clear for her to inhabit her logical position as the eminence cerise, the bolster behind the throne.
— Will Self
I think the country needs a good laugh. There are so many things dividing us right now, in the real world, that the timing is right for escapist entertainment that makes you feel better about your own family. If this family can survive, than everyone has got a chance.
— Will Packer
When you're doing comedy on stage, it's great because you have the audience there and they're like another actor in the scene. You feed off of them, laugh. But in film when everyone's quiet, it's all about timing. But the key to that is to be authentic. Be in the moment, and if you play the moment truthfully, the humor will be there.
— Wendell Pierce
A good hitter has timing. A good pitcher upsets timing.
— Warren Spahn
Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing.
— Warren Spahn
I'm not very good on timing. In fact, I've stayed away from it.
— Walter Schloss
There is no need for the Russian state to hold such large stakes and we do intend to put our plans into practice. It is not about whether we want it or not, it is about this being practical or not and the best timing. In general, it is practical from at least one point of view - from the point of view of structural changes in the economy.
— Vladimir Putin
One characteristic that I have observed about the timing of all good traders is that they never try to squeeze out the last point in a stock.
— Venita VanCaspel
The most important ingredient for success in the stock market is a sharp sense of timing.

I have written to Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, asking him to consider 'staggered office timings' for government offices, which will help in decongesting road traffic during peak hours.
— Veerappa Moily
I would love to do something like Austin Powers to show off my comic timing.
— Uma Thurman
I've always wanted to work with Blair, and finally the timing was right. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him. I think he's a hugely underrated actor in Hollywood.
— Tyler Perry
Dancing is like bank robbery, it takes split-second timing.
— Twyla Tharp
You just have to be persistent. I think that's one of the biggest things about the model industry and this career is being persistent and believing in yourself and also being ready when the timing is right. So much of it is about timing and luck, so to be ready when you get the opportunity.
— Tricia Helfer
I'm happy to say that I have not been fired off a film. The score is usually the last thing to be done. So a lot lands on the scores shoulders. A lot of problems that seem to have nothing to do with the music gets blamed on the music , because it's relatively cheap to change, where as a reshoot etc is not. Music is often expected to help or fix bad cuts, bad acting, bad filming, bad timing, you name it.
— Trevor Rabin
Like great art, something essential dies when great jokes are explained. So what's the key to telling a good joke/creating great art timing.
— Travis Nichols
One wants to move through life with elegance and grace, blossoming infrequently but with exquisite taste, and perfect timing, like a rare bloom, a zebra orchid... One wants... But one so seldom gets what one wants, does one?
— Tony Kushner
I think that the board is a lot more intuitive than people assume. You get on it and all you have to do is put one foot on the tail and one foot on the nose and rock it up and down and that will get you into the tricks or wheelies or manuals. It's not about the balance so much as it is about the timing.
— Tony Hawk
God's timing is always perfect. Trust His delays. He's got you.
— Tony Evans
I needed to do my current job well, keep preparing, and wait on God's timing. I needed to trust His leadership rather than try to force an outcome I wanted.
— Tony Dungy
But my longevity is due to my good timing.
— Tony Curtis
Good timing is invisible. Bad timing sticks out a mile.
— Tony Corinda
If timing ain't everything, it's damn close
— Tom Peters
My emotional investment started when I read the first scene of the actual drama [45 Years]. I can't explain it, there's no logic to it, but the notion of one's youth that somehow comes back but is gone, a man of my age connecting to that timing of life.
— Tom Courtenay
Hosting is an art form. Like acting, singing, or comedy hosting is a craft. It's a delicate dance of timing, the ability to read the room, and the art of conversation.
— Todd Newton
I am first, and foremost, an actor. That's what I am. To me, a song is a mini-drama. My musical ability informs the actor as well because it gives me a sense of timing that non-musicians don't have. So, one hand washes the other.
— Theodore Bikel
Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a raindance.
— Texas Bix Bender
Our shipment of mowers was lost at sea and while we waited, winter descended and covered our green lawns with snow. That taught me a key lesson, the importance of timing. The shipping company lost the lawnmowers! By the time they showed up no one wanted them, as you can't cut grass when it's covered with snow.
— Terry Matthews
And that's the secret. Timing, hard work and smart partners. Using that formula, I've either founded or funded over 80 companies, and none have gone bankrupt. Most have done very well.
— Terry Matthews
I think, in comedy, timing is everything. You and I could tell the same joke, but if one of our timing is off, it won't be as funny. You've gotta know when to deliver your punch-lines.
Timing is so important! If you are going to be successful in dance, you must be able to respond to rhythm and timing. It's the same in the Spirit. People who don't understand God's timing can become spiritually spastic, trying to make the right things happen at the wrong time. They don't get His rhythm - and everyone can tell they are out of step. They birth things prematurely, threatening the very lives of their God-given dreams.
— T. D. Jakes
Everyone's "journey" is different. Obviously with mine, I've had some amazing breaks, but then you have to be ready to seize the moment when the timing and the luck line up. You can't be afraid. You have to be open. I feel like I've always been a leaper, and I've always leapt into things without thinking.
— Sutton Foster
My timing in life has been extraordinary. I've ridden the crest of the wave of the women's movement.
— Susan Sullivan
