― Brendan I. Koerner

― Brian Michael Bendis

“It’s a little weird: you’re headlining a show on TV, and obviously, people like to associate that with material things. I drive a – what is it – 1999 Chevy Blazer. There’s no more cushion on the driver’s seat, and the tires are about gone.”

― Brian Ortega

― Bridget Moynahan

“The biggest lie in the world is in answer to the question, ‘How are you?’ People usually say, ‘I’m fine,’ but that’s mostly bull. Everyone wants to display being perfect.

“I’m looking into making toilet paper. It’s not an option unless you a bum and gotta use newspaper. It’s not an option. Like, it’s an option if you wanna drive a car. It’s an option if you wanna use a straw. It’s an option if you wanna wear a pair of Nikes or Reeboks.”

“Mum and dad would drive me to the ACT Academy of Sport gym at 5 A.M., sit in the car and read a book, and then drive me to school. I appreciated it when I was younger, but I didn’t really understand how much they were putting into it. Now I look at budgets of $70,000 to compete, and I think, ‘Wow, they’ve put so much into this.’”

― Caroline Buchanan

“My dirty little secret is I don’t drive at all, though I have my license and I renew it every five years. I’m phobic. I keep worrying if I drive, I’ll end up killing someone. I hoped that by writing about a car crash, I might understand and heal this phobia, but I didn’t! I’m still phobic.”

― Charles Dance

“Runners are the lowest of the low in film units. They’re paid very, very minimal wages – probably below the national average. And runners are now being asked to drive actors about, as well as their runner duties. It’s kind of the same as taking advantage of nurses – it’s appalling.”

― Charles Dance

“Set out with some definite purpose in life and accomplish that purpose. There is little that the human mind can conceive that is not possible of accomplishment. The thing to do is to make up your mind what you are going to drive for, and let nothing stand in the way of its ultimate accomplishment.”

― Charles M. Schwab

“When you are giving people the gospel, you are giving them something to believe, and you have to set the stage for that. You don’t just drive up and dump the truck and drive off.”

― Chris Gethard

“I want to drive down health care costs.”

“I’m so independent in writing stuff and controlling what I do. Sometimes I get calls from people asking to be in their movie, but I’m always writing or editing, and I can never get around to doing it. I’m so much more interested in my own stuff. I think I drive my agent crazy.”

― Chris Lilley

“What’s monotonous about being an actor and often makes me want to throw in the towel or drive a car off a bridge is the auditioning – the waiting around.”

― Christopher Lee

“There are certain things producers ask you to do, and when I was starting out, I said yes to everything. I was asked, for ‘Quo Vadis,’ to drive a chariot. I said, ‘Oh yes. I’m licenced for all vehicles.’ Two days later, I was sitting in this dustbin with two very aggressive horses. I didn’t stay in it for long.”

― Christopher Lee

“I quit comics in 1988 and trained as a bus driver. I used to drive those big Greyhound coaches out of New York Port Authority and down to Princeton, New Jersey. It was, hands down, the best job I ever had, and I profoundly regret having left it. I kept that job the entire time I was on staff at DC Comics in the ’90s.”

― Conor Oberst

“The mountains seem to have conquered us long before we set foot on them, and they will remain long after our brief existence. This indomitable force of the mountains gives us humans a blank canvas on which to paint the drive of discovery and, in the process, test the limits of human performance.”

― Cory Lidle

“When I try to be funny, it always makes me more nervous that I’m trying too hard, and then my brain that already thinks too much jumps into hyper drive, and I light-speed start talking ‘Star Trek’ to someone who’s talking ‘Star Wars.’ Anyway, it doesn’t work out usually when I ‘try’ to be funny.”

― Coy Bowles

“You have to have those times when your hunger and drive is in a different place because you’re under pressure to have success.”

― Craig McCracken

“In 1974 when I was 22 years old, I was working for $95 a week at WSPB, which was an Atlanta Braves-affiliated AM radio station in Sarasota, Florida. Fresh out of Northwestern University, I was the news director at the station, and my main bread and butter was to handle updates during the morning and afternoon drive times.”

― Craig T. Nelson

“More often than not, what you open, unwrap and install on your hard drive is not what you were told you were getting.”

― Curt Schilling

“Humans live a lot longer than dogs, and we don’t suffer any penalty that I can see. We’re superior in almost every way – they can smell better. But really, they can’t drive cars, they can’t do half the things we can. I don’t understand why you can’t live longer and be really fit.”

― Cynthia Kenyon

“My kids have a competitive drive I never had growing up.”

― Damon Wayans

“Devo and The Cramps didn’t get big until they went to New York City. Chrissie Hynde didn’t get big until she moved to London. When I was growing up, there wasn’t even a place to play – just one little bar. If we wanted to have a gig, then we had to drive 45 minutes up to Cleveland.”

― Dan Auerbach

“Our entire franchise has done everything in its power to put all of our players and its coaching staff in the best possible position to execute when it counts. And to deliver to the highly supportive fans of Cleveland a proud, intense, impassioned, all-out drive to achieve a championship.”

― Dana Perino

“In the Lamborghini I have to avoid certain roads because of pot holes, and there’s nowhere to put my drink, no cup holder. And I’m not going to lie, it looks pretentious. I used to think it was cool to, like, drive it to dinner. Now? Like I really need to be looked at any more.”

― Danica Patrick

“I’ve been fortunate Daytona is a place I’ve run better than anywhere else, and that’s a big race. Maybe it has to do with attention and pressure and the drive to do well when a lot of people are watching.”

“I’m letting competition drive me, and when competition drives me, I don’t think anyone can compete with me.”

― Daniel Cormier

“I consciously think about the ethnicity of every character that I create and cast. But one thing that is equally important is quality representation. It’s not enough to put an African-American in there, a female in there, a gay character in there: How significant is their contribution? Can they drive the story?”

― Daniel Dae Kim

“In a high-IQ job pool, soft skills like discipline, drive and empathy mark those who emerge as outstanding.”

― Daniel Goleman

“I don’t think it’s a Western thing to really talk about intrinsic motivation and the drive for autonomy, mastery and purpose. You have to not be struggling for survival. For people who don’t know where their next meal is coming, notions of finding inner motivation are comical.”

“Technology is so much fun but we can drown in our technology. The fog of information can drive out knowledge.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“In World Series, everything is a bit slower than F1. But each time I sit in the car, whether it is World Series or F1, once I am in the cockpit, I am mentally prepared for what the car is. I don’t have to physically drive it to remember what it is doing.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“I used to go to work with Dad on the weekend. We’d drive past an indoor go-kart track every now and then, and we went there a few times. I was never tall enough, so I always left upset. I think I was seven when I was the right height, and I was like, ‘Please let me have a go.’ It was love at first sight.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“None of my family is in the industry. But I watched movies like an insane person when I was a child. I used to make my dad stop at the video store every time we drove past it, and you had to drive past the video store to get to our house.”

― Danielle Macdonald

“We need a government, not politics. Because there’s too much politics. Of course there should be debate. But there seems to be so much pettiness and not enough good faith. It is civilized to agree to disagree, and this idea is slowly disintegrating. The great statesmen of the past knew this, and I think it helps drive civilization.”

― Daphne Guinness

“Classical scores go up and down; they’re kind of hysterical in a way. And movie scores are much more – they just drive and move forward, and they build and can’t go up and down at that same speed. It’s a big job to turn that into something that pushes the movie along.”

― Darren Aronofsky

“Some people record onto tape, and then they pay for the tape, and download those onto a hard drive. Initially in a Pro Tools program. Other people go straight into digital, and use no tape at all.”

― Dave Grohl

“It’s not about composition. It’s the way you feel about how your objects should relate to each other.

So I have to rearrange them, and I must drive her mad, because I’m doing anarchy and she’s doing military manoeuvres.”

― David Bailey

“Palin was a political Hail Mary, a long bomb in the closing minutes of a game that John McCain and Co. were certain to lose.

They were willing to drive the country off a cliff, if that’s what it took to win.”

― Dee Dee Myers

“If I’m president, there are going to be government vans that drive around and pick up people who shouldn’t be wearing certain clothing. Talk about lack of civil rights – I’m sorry, I’m pulling you right off the street, and we’re giving you clothes that you’re going to be O.K. in.”

“There’s something undeniably oxymoronic about a ‘successful’ rock n’ roll band. Who wants to hear a bunch of success stories whining about their success? More importantly, what can be the drive behind a band, what can they have to rage against when they are successes? That’s a dichotomy every successful band wrestles with.”

― Dexter Holland

“I still have drive, but everything is relative.”

― Don Rickles

“I grew up in Queens, and on Sunday evenings, my parents would drive my brother and me past the factory. We could smell the week’s supply of bread baking. I always connected the 59th Street Bridge with that scent. Who woulda thunk, years later, I’d be there, directing and producing a hit TV show?”

― Don Scardino

“We need to drive down requirements for the schools. In the 19th century, we increased the quality of the schools by higher education saying, ‘You can’t come in unless you have these skills, unless you’ve taken these courses.’ We did that in Wisconsin when I was there, it helped to transform the secondary school system.”

― Donna Shalala

“I’d heard Joyce Grenfell on the radio, and when Mum gave me a book of her comic routines, I just loved it. Me and my sister shared a bedroom, and every night I’d drive her mad with my version of ‘George, Don’t Do That’ about people we knew at school.”

― Dorothy Atkinson

“To me I don’t deal with stress well at all, and it is stressful enough for me to deal with my own one character. So if I had to deal with all the characters and the special effects, and the editing and make the writing tweaks and do everything the director does, that would drive me to an early grave, and I just can’t do it.”

“Why is Caterpillar bad if we create a new job in India or China to receive U.S. exports? It makes no sense to me. We want to drive all the exports we can from the United States. We want to concentrate on all those consumers, outside contractors, customers outside the United States that we possibly can.”

― Douglas R. Oberhelman

“What’s it like to envision the ten-thousand-year environmental impact of tossing a plastic bottle into the trash bin, all in the single second it takes to actually toss it? Or the ten-thousand-year history of the fossil fuel being burned to drive to work or iron a shirt? It may be environmentally progressive, but it’s not altogether pleasant.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“When I have to do something fast, I wear the most unflattering rubber pants over my pants and a big easy sweater. I can get on my knees in the garden in whatever condition, and when I’m done, I can take it off, get in the car, and drive to the office. It’s the most practical thing.”

― Dries van Noten

“Whether you’re driving it short or you drive it far, you got to be in the fairway because the rough’s brutal, and if you get out of the rough into some of these bunkers, you can get some funky lies.”

“I think every part of your game, on this golf course, needs to be good. You’ve got to hit every club in the bag. You need to drive it well, hit your irons well, and always, if you want to have a chance to win a Major, then you’ve got to putt it well.”

― Dustin Johnson

― Dwyane Wade

“I wanted to show off – a simple impulse or drive; in much the same way as some kids wanted to play football, I wanted to show off. Not complicated in that sense, very natural; it just depends on how you want to show off.”

― Ed O’Neill

“But once you’ve made a song and you put it out there, you don’t own it anymore. The public own it. It’s their song. It might be their song that they wake up to, or their song they have a shower to, or their song that they drive home to or their song they cry to, scream to, have babies to, have weddings to – like, it isn’t your song anymore.”

― Edward James Olmos

“I was attracted to the concept of Hollywood and the lifestyle here. But I’ve grown to mistrust it because it has changed. I didn’t bargain for digital access parking in some concrete structure. Real heaven for me was to drive somewhere and park right in front. Now the city is going vertical.”

― Edward Ruscha

“When I drive, I check out everything I see, and just taking in all those observations helps me think. So I draw and write a lot as I drive, and I know that’s dangerous, but I manage to do it off to the side, with my notes on the seat.”

― Edward Ruscha

“Bobsled boils down to three things – your equipment, start, and drive. To win the Olympics requires all three.”

― Elizabeth Thornton

“Sometimes our childhood experiences are emotionally intense, which can create strong mental models. These experiences and our assumptions about them are then reinforced in our memory and can continue to drive our behavior as adults.”

― Elizabeth Thornton

“I’m a huge Springsteen fan, and yet if either he or Bob Dylan had to be erased from the world’s hard drive, I would save Bob Dylan’s work for sure – he’s the greater talent, and by leaps and bounds and skyscrapers and rocket blasts. But Bob Dylan is an alien to his public.”

“Your car should drive itself. It’s amazing to me that we let humans drive cars… It’s a bug that cars were invented before computers.”

― Eric Schmidt

“Remember, when you go to YouTube, you do a search. When you go to Google, you do a search. As we get the search integrated between YouTube and Google, which we’re working on, it will drive a lot of traffic into both places. So the trick, overall, is generating more searches, more uses of Google.”

― Eric Schmidt

“Electricity is an example of a general purpose technology, like the steam engine before it. General purpose technologies drive most economic growth, because they unleash cascades of complementary innovations, like lightbulbs and, yes, factory redesign.”

“War is party-blind. It doesn’t care who is in the Oval Office. The forces that drive us to war don’t care whether it’s Republican, Democrat, or other. The fact is, these parties are prey to special interests. That is something Eisenhower was afraid of.”

― Eugene Jarecki

“Britain, however, has ended up specializing in the ones you don’t see as much of: defense aerospace, making drive shafts for cars, pills and drugs, designing chips that go into 94 percent of the world’s mobile phones.”

“In Beijing, the joke among hacks is that, after the drive in from the airport, you are ready to write a column; after a month, you feel the stirrings of an idea-book; but after a year, you struggle to write anything at all, because you’ve finally discovered just how much you don’t know.”

― Evan Osnos

“I made music with my friend, who we called Isabella Machine to which I was Florence Robot. When I was about an hour away from my first gig, I still didn’t have a name, so I thought ‘Okay, I’ll be Florence Robot/Isa Machine’, before realising that name was so long it’d drive me mad.”

― Florence Welch

“I could do another tour, make a record that’s very similar, do similar venues. Or I could make a different record, do different venues, and grow. It’s exciting to take it to new places, but it’s never been my intent to be the biggest thing in the world. That’s not what my drive is. I want to make what I want to make, and make a living off it.”

― Flume

“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.”

― Francis of Assisi

“I think that in France, we really admire American films, we admire their drive, we admire the modernity and ellipsism in the film and the writing and the style of acting, and we look at them perhaps in a way to see what we can steal from them, too, to make our own films more modern.”

― Francois Cluzet

“I don’t want to drive the markets crazy. I don’t want to create trouble, but rather order and rules and norms. We have to struggle against financial excesses, those who speculate with sovereign debt, those who develop financial products which have done so much harm.”

“A couple times a year, I get in the car, and I’ll drive 1,000 miles cross-country, going through side streets. I’ll stay off the highways as much as possible. And I realize it’s a huge country, and for us to be in so many places in the country is an amazing thing.”

“We live in a multi-cultural society far more open to international ideas. If you’d told me 20 years ago I’d drive through Bury and see someone sitting outside a cafe drinking a latte, I’d have laughed. In fact, I wouldn’t have even known what a latte was.”

“I think entrepreneurs are born and not created, and so I think you see a lot of similarities among entrepreneurs in different parts of the world. Their backdrop may be very different, but their drive to create a business and to create jobs remains very much the same, whether it’s in Silicon Valley or Kandahar or Kabul.”

“Ayman Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s deputy, as well as Abu Musab Zarqawi, have made it quite clear in their internal propaganda that they cannot win unless they can drive the Americans out. And they know that they can’t do that there, so they’ve brought the battlefield to the halls of Congress.”

― Geoff Davis

“Evil is relative – and what I mean by that is that our villains are as complex, as deep and as compelling as any of our heroes. Every antagonist in the DC Universe has a unique darkness, desire and drive. And the reason for being of ‘Forever Evil’ is to explore that darkness.”

― Geoff Johns

“I’ve always wanted to explore North America. I drive a motorbike and have always wanted to spend a couple of months exploring the continent on two wheels.”

“I think Britain can be one of the great success stories of the 21st century – we’ve got the talent, the drive, the connections around the world. But if we vote to Leave, then we lose control. We lose control of our economy, and if you lose control of your economy you lose control of everything. That’s not a price worth paying.”

“When I was going to gay bars in my 20s and 30s, the older guys there explained to me that the police would occasionally raid these places and march the clients out, load them onto paddy wagons, drive them down to the station, photograph them, fingerprint them and put their names on a list. They were doing nothing wrong, and it was criminalized.”

― George Takei

“Newspapers are the engines that drive the Web.”

― Georgia Groome

“Kids who grow up in radically different environments are always going to have different comfort levels with regard to a topic. If you don’t live near a train track, it’s hard to squash a penny that way, and if you live in an apartment in New York City, it may be difficult to get to drive a car.”

― Gever Tulley

“I liked to drive around, just playing music for everyone.”

― Gia Coppola

“In California, where you’re allowed to drive at 16, you get so much freedom with that. It’s a freedom to get outside of your parents’ house and to do bad things.”

“In film, I was surprised when I first saw the movie ‘Drive.’ I said, ‘Oh, God. It sounds great – I love it. Wow, this could be the soundtrack from ‘American Gigolo’ or ‘Cat People.’ But I’m surprised that the director would agree with a composer to write that kind of sound.”

― Giorgio Moroder

“One of the most interesting things, at least for me, are the soundtracks for ‘The Social Network’ and ‘Drive.’ Basically, it’s what I did in ‘American Gigolo.’ I could have done the music for those movies blindfolded. And one of them won an Oscar, and the other is this massive soundtrack.”

― Giorgio Moroder

― Greg Fitzsimmons

“From a very early age, I was in tune with pop radio, and most of this listening was done driving. We had an old ’67 or ’65 Buick LeSabre, and whenever we would drive around, I would actually stick my head right against the speakers in the back and sing along to the music.”

― Greg Graffin

“President George H. W. Bush soon launched Operation Desert Shield, sending an enormous contingent of troops to Saudi Arabia. But once there, what exactly were they to do? Contain Iraq? Attack and liberate Kuwait? Drive on to Baghdad and depose Saddam? There was no clear consensus among foreign policy advisers or analysts.”

― Greg Gutfeld

“In the ’70s, there were economists who argued that seat belts were causing people to drive faster and kill more pedestrians. But after 15 or 20 years of research, we can now conclude that’s actually not true. Seat belts, on net, do make people safer. So, on an evidence-based process, we should have people wear seat belts.”

― Greg Ip

“Some kind of clutter is difficult – letting go of things with sentimental value, sifting through papers – but some clutter I find very refreshing to clear. I drive my daughters nuts because I’m always wandering into their rooms to clear clutter.”

― Gretchen Rubin

“Expanding access to decent work opportunities is the most effective way to increase labor-market participation, lift people out of poverty, reduce inequality, and drive economic growth. It should be at the center of policymaking. The alternative is a dog-eat-dog world in which too many will feel left out.”

― Guy Ryder

“Too many people feel that where you start out dictates where you should end up. I was on welfare and just shy of 19 when my first daughter was born, but I was encouraged to take advantage of my ability and drive and remained in school.”

― Gwen Moore

“School is something that I drive to finish.”

― Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

“Most Americans are more concerned about the economy and job creation. And they can’t understand why the Obama administration or the Democrat majority in Congress wants to pass a bill like the cap-and-trade tax that will cost us jobs, that will hurt our economy, that will drive up costs for families, as well as for small businesses.”

― Haley Barbour

“I always wanted to do things on my own terms, and unfortunately in this industry, that’s not something that is easily given. You’re at the mercy of other people, but then you still have that drive to continue on. That’s an equation for a lot of heartbreak.”

― Haley Bennett

“I went to Coachella once, and it was only to go see Leonard Cohen. I got in the car and sat through all the crazy traffic in L.A. to get there – instead of a two hour drive, it takes, like, six hours. Then I watched his set and turned around and left. I just so wanted to see him perform in the desert.”

― Hannah Simone

“Good analysis is very useful when you want to convert a political decision into an investment. It can also go the other way and drive policy.”

― Hans Rosling

“I am not a great fan of computers. I do watch videos and analyse which batsman is playing how. Batsmen can play different shots on different days. A batsman may not play cover drives well, but if he connects with two such shots, he starts playing the drive well on that day.”

“Hitting .400 is something you can do by yourself. But you have to rely on guys getting on base at the right time to drive in that many runs.”

― Harmon Killebrew

“Exporting oil would not drive up prices at the pump. American drivers buy refined products, which the U.S. already exports. Many studies – from a range of institutions and government agencies, including the Congressional Budget Office and the Energy Information Administration – have shown that lifting the export ban could actually lower gas prices.”

― Harold Hamm

“Everyone confesses that exertion which brings out all the powers of body and mind is the best thing for us; but most people do all they can to get rid of it, and as a general rule nobody does much more than circumstances drive them to do.”

― Harriet Beecher Stowe

“Certainly as an actor, half of your work is not going to end up on the screen anyway, because in the editorial process, they need to cut to the other actor in the scene. Very often, your best work ends up on the cutting room floor, because it just doesn’t work with the overall narrative drive of the story.”

― Hart Bochner

“J. Cole’s 2014 ‘Forrest Hills Drive.’ The album, artwork, and director of that album was a huge influence on the visuals for ‘Homecoming King.’”

“If the two largest economies in the world don’t show us a good example on trade liberalization, then you can’t expect the smaller and weaker economies to take the risks. The initiative, the momentum and the drive really do have to come from Japan and the U.S.”

― Helmut Sohmen

“Typically, there’s a drive in science to do something just to say you’ve done it.”

― Hendrik Poinar

“It is obviously no secret that I earn a lot of money. But it is also no secret that I give most of it away. I don’t live a luxurious life. I drive a small second-hand Fiat. I don’t have to worry about money, which is itself a privilege. But I never had any anxiety that I would lose my identity.”

― Henning Mankell

“How to drive a guy crazy: send him a telegram and on the top put ‘page 2.’”

― Hermann Maier

“In Japan, there are storm channels on either side of the main roads. There were so many times when I’d fall into these ditches because I was lost in stories as I was walking along. It’s still dangerous for me to drive. I’ve driven into the gate outside my house numerous times.”

― Hideo Kojima

“It became clear to me that simply caring is not enough. To drive real progress, you have to change both hearts and laws. You need both understanding and action.”

― Hillary Clinton

“I can’t drive anymore.”

“We’ve seen computers play chess and beat grand masters. We’ve seen computers drive a car across a desert. But interestingly, playing chess is easy, but having a conversation about nothing is really difficult for a computer.”

― Hod Lipson

“I was born and raised on a farm, where boys had chores and girls did not, i.e., drive tractors, bale hay, take care of cattle.”

― Holly Hunter

“You can’t drive through Iowa and not think about farming: No less than 85 percent of the land in the state is devoted to farms, many of them more than 1,000 acres. This is the place where seeds are sown. It’s where farmers grow the corn that will be fed to pigs as grain or fed to you as syrup or fermented to ethanol for your gas tank.”

― Hope Jahren

“The nature of creativity is to make space for things to happen… We can drive it out with our busyness and plans.”

― Iain McGilchrist

“You can find dozens of books about people taking the Trans-Siberian Railroad. I knew I had to do something different to cross Siberia. To drive and to talk with people along the way, that was how I wrote my book ‘Great Plains’. I drove and camped in Siberia, but did not have a real program.”

“I remember that in Baltimore, where I grew up, we would drive by the radio station and tower of WBAL, and I would try to picture the people inside and what they did there.”

“Any business owner can tell you that if their company isn’t performing profitably and up to standards, one of two things will happen: either you make changes to improve its efficiency, or a competitor will drive you out of business.

“I drive a big Dodge truck. I drive American cars.”

― J. B. Smoove

“I’ll drive down the street, and I’ll practice improv. I will sit there at a red light and see two guys talking to each other, and I will just start playing both characters. I can’t hear them, but I can see their mouths moving, so I’ll just put words in their mouths.”

“Ben Roethlisberger is a proven winner in athletic competition. But the measure of a true leader is how they conduct themselves 24/7, not just during a winning touchdown drive or a goal-line stance. Leadership isn’t something that gets switched off because the game clock expires.”

“I used to fly around quite a bit, you know? I took a lot of unnecessary chances on the highways. And I started racing, and now I drive on the highways, I’m extra cautious because no one knows what they’re doing half the time. You don’t know what this guy is going to do or that one.”

“The fact is, if a young man is naturally indolent, the spur of necessity will drive him but a very little way, while the having enough to live upon is often the means of preserving his self-respect.”

― James Payn

“Unlike fuel-economy standards, the most common method of reducing demand for oil over the past thirty years, a gas tax doesn’t tell people what kind of car to drive. It simply raises the price of gasoline and lets people adjust their behavior accordingly.”

― James Surowiecki

“One reason I’m such a wayward prognosticator of rightwing trends is that I’m incapable of blacking out enough neural sectors to see the world through reptilian-brained eyes, a prerequisite for any true channeling of the mean resentments and implanted fears that drive hardcore conservatives.”

“There was a big drive when I was at art school to make you aware of the economy of meaning – after all, this was still during the tail end of minimalism. Being responsible for everything you put in your picture, and being able to defend it. Keeping everything clear around you so you know what is operating. To open the wound and keep it clean.”

“I’m particularly fond of the Mulholland Fountain, at Riverside Drive and Los Feliz Boulevard, when it turns colors at night.”

― Jason Aldean

― Jeff Van Gundy

“There was a library near us in San Francisco. It was the West Portal Public Library. I would ask my father to drive me there at night and pick me up when it closed. I think he was worried about this routine but never let on. Also, I kept this a secret from my friends, as I don’t think it would have been considered the ‘coolest’ habit.”

― Jeffrey Tambor

“I don’t have that drive to be in this field, climbing up, doing bit parts in movies to make a big movie. But I’m lucky I get to also do acting – it’s fun. I should probably just take an acting class on the weekends – that would be enough for me.”

― Jemima Kirke

“My friends were dropping like flies, and the government wasn’t doing anything. You don’t watch an entire generation take water hoses and dogs on the front line during the ’60s or watch another generation perish from AIDS and then get to drive around in big cars and do nothing.”

― Jenifer Lewis

“When I lived in Minneapolis in my twenties, and my mom lived there, too, I used to take her ‘storm chasing’ – by which I mean I’d see a pulsing blob of radar on The Weather Channel and make her drive us toward the storm.”

― Jenna Blum

“When I was on Broadway when I was little, I remember always driving through Times Square with my dad to the theater. Now when I go back, you can’t even drive on Broadway in the 40s. New Times Square is too touristy to me.”

“We entered Gettysburg in the afternoon, just in time to meet the enemy entering the town, and in good season to drive him back before his getting a foothold.”

― John Buford

“Freedom of speech is, to all Americans, as oxygen is to the human condition. It is a right that has been irreversibly programmed into our hard drive. We are free to speak our minds. An artist’s right to express him or herself as best suits their art, is the artist’s prerogative and it is guaranteed.”

― John C. McGinley

― John James Audubon

“Africa is one of my favorite places because there are so many things to do – either surfing or going to see the animals. You can drive two hours or six hours up the coast – or just 15 minutes up the road – and it’s probably something you haven’t seen before.”

― John John Florence

“Go into something because you really like it, and then do it with a drive and enthusiasm so that it isn’t work.”

― John Kluge

“If you’re sitting in your minivan, playing your computer animated films for your children in the back seat, is it the animation that’s entertaining you as you drive and listen? No, it’s the storytelling. That’s why we put so much importance on story. No amount of great animation will save a bad story.”

― John Lasseter

“I’ve often heard people say that managing creative people is the hardest thing in the world. ‘They’re never happy, they drive up the cost of things, blah blah blah.’ I just manage people the way I always wanted to be managed. That is, to be creatively challenged, but never to be told what to do.”

― John Lasseter

“I grew up a big fan of the J. R. Ewing character of the ‘Dallas’ TV show, and I grew up around people who were very similar to J. R.: they had come into a ton of money. And they loved to flaunt it and loved to drive fancy cars and wear the big cowboy hats and nice suits.”

“I’m very encouraged by millennials and their drive to make the world a better place.”

― John Mackey

“I’ve often said, ‘If I had one drive to win a game to this day, and I had a quarterback to pick, I would pick Kenny.’ Snake was a lot cooler than I was. He was a perfect quarterback and a perfect Raider. When you think about the Raiders, you think about Ken Stabler.”

― John Madden

“A simple social engineering hack might involve leaving a thumb drive on the pavement close to the driver’s door of a car.”

“I get nostalgic for British negativity. There is an inherent hope and positive drive to New Yorkers. When you go back to Britain, everybody is just running everything down. It’s like whatever the opposite of a hug is.”

― John Oliver

“There is an inherent hope and positive drive to New Yorkers.”

― John Oliver

“It was always difficult for me to listen to my singing voice for the first 20 years or so. I mean, I really enjoyed singing, and I enjoyed doing live shows, but being in a recording studio and having to hear my voice played back to me would really drive me up the wall.”

― John Prine

“Southern barbecue is the closest thing we have in the U.S. to Europe’s wines or cheeses; drive a hundred miles and the barbecue changes.”

― John Shelton Reed

“It is accurate that the Walt Disney Company and ESPN are committed to diversity and inclusion. These are long-standing values that drive fundamental fairness while providing us with the widest possible pool of talent to create the smartest and most creative staff. We do not view this as a political stance but as a human stance.”

― John Skipper

“The key word is ‘control.’ I have to get to the point where I can do it like Magic does. That means penetrating, scoring more, taking over on offense once in a while, increasing my range on the outside shot to open things up for the drive.”

― John Stockton

“Whilst worthy in themselves, applications shouldn’t be the only way to drive basic research.”

― John Sulston

“The first thing I ever rode when I was a kid was a motorcycle, so I knew how to drive a motorcycle before a car.”

― Johnny Depp

“I grew up in an era where the perfect drive was a line drive, with quite a bit more spin.”

“My biggest concern about the market is the force that acts to drive down price, because I think that’s destructive to authors as well as publishers. Our biggest battle is to underline the value of intellectual property.”

― Jonathan Levine

“Every American college student goes to college with a hard drive. They take their laptop. There’s not a CD player in sight.”

― Jordan Fisher

“I suppose when people are criticising you and saying that you are not really worthy of going to such a club as Liverpool, it gives you a little bit more drive and more desire to prove them wrong. And that can only help you in the long run: make you a little bit tougher mentally.”

― Jordan Henderson

“I’d travel to Alfreton for games, and my dad, Lee, would drive. I’d eat my pre-match meal in the back. Mam would make chicken and pasta, and she’d stick it in a tub.”

― Jordan Pickford

“I love going to Rodeo Drive with my wife.”

― Jose Andres

“I hate fishing, and I can’t imagine why anyone would want to hike when you can get in the car and drive.”

― Joseph Barbera

“Our lives are structured by our memories of events. Event X happened just before the big Paris vacation. I was doing Y in the first summer after I learned to drive. Z happened the weekend after I landed my first job. We remember events by positioning them in time relative to other events.”

“I couldn’t help but to think back to my classmates at Thomas Jefferson High School in San Antonio. They had the same talent, the same brains, the same dreams as the folks we sat with at Stanford and Harvard. I realized the difference wasn’t one of intelligence or drive. The difference was opportunity.”

“Playing a show is a monumental hassle. You’ve got to schlep all your heavy equipment into the van, then you’ve got to drive for five hours, then you have to schlep all the heavy equipment out of the van, onto the stage, set it up, do the sound check, hang around for three hours, then play the show, which is incredibly draining.”

― Juliana Hatfield

― Julie Brown

“In my third husband I had discovered a blissfully laid-back type who thought it nothing less than hilarious when I misread the map on the way to Wales, so it took us an extra three hours, or when I was sick in a plastic carrier bag during much of the drive back from Devon – a bag that turned out to have a hole in it.”

― Julie Burchill

“My dad didn’t drive – the only dad I knew who didn’t.”

“If I walk into the editing room, it’s six hours lost. I’m massaging frames. I’m, like, ‘Oh, take six frames off that shot. Hit the music cue right there.’ I will drive everybody crazy if left to my own devices in that room. So I try to do everything I can by staying out of the way.”

― Julie Plec

“Airports drive me mad. I don’t mind the flying; it’s all the hassle before you get on the plane and afterwards, including walking five miles through corridors to the point where you queue for ages to check passports and hope your luggage has arrived safely.”

― June Whitfield

“When you have a very hot single there is no reason why it can’t drive album sales. People fall off and come back on. I’m looking forward to coming back on with a vengeance.”

― Justin Guarini

“Just in general as a person, not necessarily as a songwriter, being in cities wasn’t the right fit. I couldn’t escape and be in the woods in 10 minutes if I needed to. I like that in Eau Claire, I can walk to a bar or a coffee shop, and there’s city-ish things, but I can also drive and in eight minutes be at my parents’ land outside of town.”

― Justin Vernon

“It’s challenging to drive in a way that’s human-like.”

― Karl Iagnemma

“It’s important for automated cars to be able to drive in a human-like fashion – and that does mean adapting to the driving patterns around you.”

― Karl Iagnemma

“For better or worse, we have to bridge this divide between developing cars that drive by the book and cars that drive how you and I drive.”

― Karl Iagnemma

“I drive a car, like an adult. Not brilliantly. I’m not great.”

“This is about Floridians saying what’s most important to them and making sure that we create an agenda that we can drive and deliver back in Washington, D.C. So it’s very exciting.”

― Katherine Harris

“Regressing back to an infant state is nothing to be proud of. Rich Americans don’t drive themselves, don’t cook, don’t do their own nails/hair/make-up, don’t shop, and I suppose all they’ve got in common with rich British people is that they don’t raise their own kids, either.”

― Katherine Ryan

― Keegan Allen

“I’m not saying I do evil things. I’m just saying if a cop stops me when I’m speeding, sometimes – not all the time – I might get out of that ticket. Let’s just say I don’t have any points on my licence in Ireland, and I drive relatively quickly.”

― Kellan Lutz

“The greats are ‘The Shining’, ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, ‘Don’t Look Now’, ‘The Exorcist’ – those movies were not really slashers: they were about psychological terror and had very deep emotional backdrops. If we do our best, ‘6 Miranda Drive’ can be that kind of a movie.”

― Kevin Bacon

“As a kid, we would drive up and down 77 North – that’s our highway – there would be office buildings on the side of the highway and I’d be like, that’s what my house is going to look like when I get older. I’m going to start making my house look like this.”

“Being from New York, living in L.A., being in Chicago, you kind of get more of the big-city, melting-pot sort of thing.

“So what ‘Twilight’ does is show how women/girls can drive box office and they can support a tent pole movie. They’re an extremely passionate fan base.

“The greatest luxury is not driving. I didn’t own a car until I was 30, and that was a Rolls-Royce, so it was cheaper to insure a chauffeur. I never want to drive again. My mind is always on other things. I hate parking, and I’m very short-tempered and would get road rage, I’m sure.”

― Michael Shannon

“’Hamlet’ is one of the most dangerous things ever set down on paper. All the big, unknowable questions like what it is to be a human being; the difference between sanity and insanity; the meaning of life and death; what’s real and not real. All these subjects can literally drive you mad.”

― Michael Sheen

“A perfect day would be to get into the car, drive out to Yosemite and go camping.”

― Noel Clarke

“I’ve got quite a strong drive, and that can be slightly deplorable. Struggling to become a famous comedian – there’s something weird about that.”

― Noel Fielding

“I still feel about 22. I don’t understand, actually. I mean, as I got older, I thought there would be things like, ‘I need a house now’, ‘I need kids’, ‘I need a licence to drive’, but I have never really had that happen. I guess that forms part of my appeal for the people who like the stuff I do: I’m not a real person – I’m a gypsy.”

― Noel Fielding

“We don’t want A.I. to engage in cyberbullying, stock manipulation, or terrorist threats; we don’t want the F.B.I. to release A.I. systems that entrap people into committing crimes. We don’t want autonomous vehicles that drive through red lights, or worse, A.I. weapons that violate international treaties.”

― Oren Etzioni

“You can drive an SUV, but there’s a balance. If you do that, maybe use energy-efficient light bulbs at home or just be conscious of switching off lights. If you can afford to drive an SUV, maybe you can afford to make a donation to a wind farm or plant some trees. It’s all about balance.”

― Orlando Bloom

“I used to ride motorbikes and drive cars like everything was a racetrack; it was ridiculous. It wasn’t because I thought it was cool; it was just because I loved living on the edge. But I’ve chilled.”

― Owen King

― Ozwald Boateng

“In ‘Stree,’ I play a character who believes that he knows everything. And I play a cop in ‘Drive.’ It is a different kind of a role. It is not a uniform-wearing character. The film is interesting, since it is a thriller.”

― Paul Bloom

“Germany’s Angela Merkel exudes an atmosphere of elderly exhaustion and pooped-out pessimism. Britain’s David Cameron, though by nature exuberant, feels he has to look and sound glum.

“In fact, because of this deep desire for peace, the ruling class leaders of this land, from 1945 on, stepped up the hysteria and propaganda to drive into American minds the false notion that danger threatened them from the East.”

― Paul Robeson

“I always say that characters must drive plots, never the reverse. Writing about large-scale events creates the risk that the scope of the events themselves can overwhelm the characters. I emphatically do not want that. That was the only trepidation I felt when I started ‘The Twilight War.’”

― Paul S. Kemp

“I lived in an attached house. My father used to drive into the wrong driveway all the time. He’d say, Damn it, how do you tell one of these houses from another?”

― Paul Simon

“’Inequality’ has become the political theme/slogan of our time in both Europe and the U.S., yet political leaders do not even bother to consider that their own policies, which put the entire burden on central bankers to print money and drive up stock, bond and other asset prices, are actually exacerbating income and wealth disparity.”

― Paul Singer

“I never thought being the producer was being the dictator. It means being the director and being the coach. It’s a way of keeping everybody focused on the goal, and also having final say. Everybody can be in the same car, but somebody has to drive.”

“There are times in every friendship when you or your friend are too busy to call or are more focused on other relationships. It will hurt, but it’s rarely personal. Making it personal usually makes things worse, and being too clingy or demanding can drive a friend even further away. Like people, friendships can get ‘overworked’ and need to rest.”

― Rachel Simmons

“The meteoric rise of the ‘wellness’ industry online has launched an entire industry of fitness celebrities on social media. Millions of followers embrace their regimens for diet and exercise, but increasingly, the drive for ‘wellness’ and ‘clean eating’ has become stealthy cover for more dieting and deprivation.”

― Rachel Simmons

“Not only do I not drive, I don’t have my driver’s license; there’s a story there, but the upshot is that I spent my high school years an ardent environmentalist and workout junkie who wanted to save the environment, burn calories, and have my boyfriends drive me around.”

“The pop-star thing bores me because it’s somebody programming someone else. Stand over here, sing that, no, sing it like this, talk like that, when they ask you this, don’t say that, say this, hold that, drive this, stay here, live there – you’re not even a human being. You’re a puppet.”

― Randy Jackson

― Raymond Kwok

“In 2008, I started the election season as a critic of Hillary Clinton, a fan of Barack Obama, and a supporter of John Edwards. But by the end of Clinton’s historic drive toward nomination, the gendered rhetoric used against her – as well as the way so many men in my own party diminished the value of electing a female president – had radicalized me.”

“Film and stage are very different; I don’t necessarily prefer one over the other. Every few years, I get a big itch to go back to the theater. To learn humility, to learn bravery and to remind yourself that the pistons that drive your craft are working on full power. And to remind yourself how badly paid actors can be.”

“Living with a nuclear North Korea could give its leaders the confidence to act more aggressively versus South Korea. It could also, over time, drive both South Korea and Japan, as well as countries farther afield such as Vietnam, to reconsider their non-nuclear postures. The stability of a critical region of the world would suddenly be in doubt.”

― Richard N. Haass

“Attempting to build a language wall around Quebec is precisely the wrong policy to follow.

“From 1859 to 1971, the U.S. oil industry grew virtually continuously, in the process serving mightily to drive our economy and win our wars. But that growth was stopped dead in 1971 and sent into decline thereafter, as the advent of the EPA and the accompanying National Environmental Policy Act made it increasingly difficult to drill.”
