― Kristen Bell

“Even with so many artists using auto-tune, there’s still a growing group of artists rising up and going in the opposite direction, making music that’s real and fresh.

“The dirty little secret on Wall Street: Eighty percent of the Wall Street executives’ and their spouses’ donations go to Democrats. It’s like they’ve got some kind of little sweet deal, where we’ll call you fat cats and demean you and stuff, but you will get richer than your wildest dreams.”

― Louie Gohmert

“I grew up on a wide range of stuff. OutKast, they been around for over 20 years, and some of the L.A. cats like Defari, Dilated Peoples and Likwit Crew. I was always going to these shows and catching the KRS-One tennis ball, as he would throw those out, EPMD. I could go on and on.”

― Mahershala Ali

“There is a sense in which we have – like, I go in to teach a class; I may be somewhat different than I would be talking to you, although it’s related because it’s public.

― Melanie Martinez

“I’ve done movies that have mostly feminine characters and elements, and I think that both ‘Heathers’ and ‘Truth About Cats and Dogs’ are, in their own weird ways – they’re different ends of the girl movie spectrum, but they’re very much centered around the female characters, and I like those movies, and I like working with good actresses.”

― Michael Lehmann

I love a lot of electronica because I love programming synthesizers.”

― Sir Mix-a-Lot

“Cats and their owners are on a private, exclusive loop of affection. Thus cats have become symbolic of a community eschewed and a hyper-engagement with oneself.

― Sloane Crosley

“A pet store is a celebration of dogs’ existence and an explosion of options. About cats, a pet store seems to say, ‘Here, we couldn’t think of anything else.’ Cats are the Hanukkah of the animal world in this way. They are feted quietly and happily by a minority, but there’s only so much hoopla applicable to them.”

― Sloane Crosley

― Ted Cruz

“The living werewolves have genuine needs and desires, which, though they may oppose ours, are valid. Even if they want to eat humans, you can’t really call them evil, any more than mice can call cats evil, or chickens can call humans evil. It’s all just a matter of where you’re standing.”
