“Say I lived until 80 and read a book a month seriously, that means I was looking at 480 books left in my life. If I had only 480 left, I wanted to stop sifting through material I didn’t have confidence in and turn my attention to those that I know merited my reading.”

― Amor Towles

― Amy Lee

“After I lost my legs, all I wanted to do was snowboard again. I remember spending an entire year on the computer, looking for ‘adaptive snowboarders’ or ‘snowboard legs’ or ‘adaptive snowboard schools’ or just something that I could connect to. I already knew how to snowboard – I just needed to find the right legs.”

― Amy Purdy

“I’m not a booky actor, I don’t go away and do loads of reading up on a part, generally. I’m more interested in what the people we’re portraying do physically, and looking at their sentence construction.”

― Andrew Buchan

“When a human being becomes so still that they begin to lose awareness of their gender, and they are simply looking into that abyss where there is no notion of self whatsoever, the world disappears. And that’s really the only place to go. It’s the only place to remain.”

“One of the things I’ve always thought is a drag in so many period adaptations is that they are always buttoned up to the neck in so many clothes all the time. I’m always looking for excuses to get them out of their clothes.”

― Andrew Davies

“I always quite like the idea of casting against type when I’m looking for and trying to understand who a character is.”

― Andrew Haigh

“If I can do a scene in one shot, it’s in one shot. Most of my shots are pretty long. I think with ‘Looking,’ what we have in the first minute is a whole episode of a traditional TV show. I like to let things breathe; I like to let things have a certain tone.”

― Andrew Haigh

“’Looking’ was always a niche show for a niche within a niche. It’s a gay-themed show, so you’re not going to get millions of straight people watching it – that’s the inevitability of it.”

― Andrew Haigh

“I’ve always been interested in this idea of looking at these monster stories and trying to really understand the mechanics underneath. That’s very much true of this movie I made, ‘All Good Things,’ as well as ‘Catfish,’ which I produced.”

“Investors are sometimes too busy looking for profits to notice where the truth ends and the deception begins.”

― Andrew Ross Sorkin

“Before the web and these highly focused entities, journalists got to decide what was important to tell their audience and educated their readers.

― Andrew Ross Sorkin

“Some books inspire one to read, and some inspire one to write; for selfish reasons, I’m always looking for the latter.”

― Andrew Sean Greer

“If you’re looking for a behind-the-scenes rock-n-roll biography, pick up Nikki Sixx’s ‘The Heroin Diaries’. If you want the world’s most narcissistic high school yearbook, however, ‘First Step 2 Forever’ is your new bicycle.”

― Andrew Shaffer

“Non-profits should be looking to enlist and retain the best people to aggressively solve problems, not to perform adequately and persist. We should expect people to innovate and do the highest-quality work and then reward them accordingly.”

― Andrew Yang

“If you’re a set of guys looking to start a company, think about women you could team up with – they will see things differently and solve problems you didn’t even realize you had.”

― Andrew Yang

“My feeling is that you don’t go looking for troubles. The cross ought to find you. And so I never go out of my way. I figure I only get involved in things that I can’t get around.”

― Andrew Young

“Yelp is – I mean, Yelp’s not even good for looking up the restaurant’s phone number because, you know, on the site, they just want you to read their reviews and look at their ads. They don’t even actually want to give you the information about the restaurant or the menu.”

― Andy Taylor

“I can only guess that, for guys in their 30s and 40s who watched me play, they understood that the score never mattered and my paycheck never mattered (in relation) to how I played. I played with Little League enthusiasm and professional flair. That’s what fans are really looking for.”

― Andy Van Slyke

“There’s more to research than just looking up facts. Eventually, you have to make subjective calls. If you’re writing a science fiction novel, there’s probably some speculative technology in it. You’ll have to decide how to project existing technology forward in a plausible way.”

― Andy Weir

“We spend a lot of time looking at the things we like: Amazon, Google, Facebook.”

“Looking back, I can see that my life with David was molded by forces beyond my control and even my understanding. Still, I don’t regret trying.”

― Angela Bowie

“I worked hard when I was a consultant. I worked hard when I was in graduate school looking at neuroscience. I worked hard as a teacher. But those are completely different career paths. And the lack of direction is why I didn’t get far enough in any of those things.”

― Angela Duckworth

“I know a lot of CEOs who are looking for three- to four-year varsity athletes – not necessarily because these people are going to be doing pushups or spiking volleyballs in the workplace, but because they’re looking for that continuity, that person who was gritty about something.”

― Angela Duckworth

“What’s hurtful is when you have portrayals like, you know, when you have someone like Jared Leto who accepts an award for ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ after playing a trans woman, standing in a full beard and looking fully cis male: it is communicating to our audiences that underneath all of that, it’s still a man under that.”

― Angelica Ross

“Basically, I’m working on global domination. I plan to have members globally. What I’m looking to do is expand in a way that allows us to provide more access and take advantage of the sort of ‘world is flat’ technology platform, where it doesn’t matter where you’re located.”

― Angelica Ross

“Where ever I am I always find myself looking out the window wishing I was somewhere else.”

― Angelina Jolie

“I’m odd looking. Sometimes I think I look like a funny muppet.”

― Angelina Jolie

“Brad was a huge surprise to me. I think we were both the last two people who were looking for a relationship. I certainly wasn’t. I was quite content to be a single mom with Mad.”

― Angelina Jolie

“I really started to get into reading the Bible and I started to look for a church to go to. Every Sunday I was going to like three or four churches, I was just looking for the right church.”

― Angus T. Jones

― Ann B. Davis

“It turns out that all of the things I was looking for in a governor, Trump has even more. He has been vetted by the media; he has been attacked by the media his entire life and is perfectly comfortable in front of a gaggle of microphones.”

― Ann Coulter

“The Republicans are whistling past the graveyard. If we don’t change our policies on immigration, you’re going to be looking at Iran Deal after Iran Deal after Iran Deal. I can count on Americans to protect Israel. I don’t count on foreigners to care about Israel, and that’s who’s coming in to vote.”

― Ann Coulter

“The ‘indistinguishable from magic’ thing is highly dependent on where a viewer is looking from and not something intrinsic to any particular sort of tech.”

― Ann Leckie

“Bands are always told, ‘Nobody wants to hear your new stuff – just stick with the meat and potatoes – that’s what people come for.’ That’s only half-true. I know if I went to see U2, I would be thrilled if they did ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,’ but I’m equally as thrilled to hear their new stuff.”

― Ann Wilson

“In the theatre, if you say ‘Macbeth’, all the actors will start looking very anxious. I’m so well-trained not to say it in the theatre that I can hardly say it in normal life.”

― Anna Chancellor

“You don’t think people would go on about my looks if I was No. 500 in the world instead of No.12, do you? Anyway, as I keep telling everyone, you can’t blame me for looking like this on purpose.”

― Anna Soubry

“The elitist way of looking on the runway, frankly, seems old fashioned.”

― Anna Wintour

“I’m inspired by looking at art, by looking at precedent. Looking is what you have to do if you want to make things, so you develop a critical eye.”

― Annabelle Selldorf

“I know I’m old-fashioned, but there’s just something about the act of looking at books versus taking in information on a screen, which is so one-dimensional. There’s a sense of ownership that you have with books, a physical connection.”

― Annabelle Selldorf

“If we lose bees, we may be looking at losing apples and oranges. We may be looking at losing a great deal of other crops, as well, and other animals that depend on those crops.”

“I was lucky that when Lorne Michaels came looking for women comedy writers, there weren’t too many in New York at the time. I was at the top of a very short list. I think that was all good fortune.”

― Anne Beatts

“Ireland is a series of stories that have been told to us, starting with the Irish Celtic national revival. I never believed in ‘Old Ireland.’ It has been made all of kitsch by the diaspora, looking back and deciding what Ireland is. Yes, it is green. Yes, it is friendly. I can’t think of anything else for definite.”

― Anne Enright

“It’s important to talk about loving yourself and looking at your tragedies and the stuff that makes you grow.”

“Are we changing the idea of what beauty is? Let’s hope so. I’m not the typical Hollywood beauty. Let’s hope we’re looking at the insides of people a little more.”

― Anne Heche

“The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was, nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.”

― Anthony Bourdain

“Growing up in the ’50s and being in the ’60s, in that revolutionary time space, I thought freedom was what I was looking for. Slowly but surely, it became clear that the last thing I was interested in was freedom. Because if you’re going to be free, you have to be free from something.”

― Anthony Braxton

“As adults, we’ve seen so much before that we often turn the pages of a picture book without really looking. Young children tend to look more carefully.”

― Anthony Browne

“I was always enjoying the moment. Acting, writing, looking for roles and getting involved with people and trying to create something that would be entertaining to people. With ‘E.R.,’ we were all very lucky to get this combination of people together in the right story in the right way to take it to the level it has reached.”

― Anthony Fauci

“I think it would be over-exaggeration to think that there are millions of viruses ready to jump on us and bring us back to the 14th century. That would be looking over a ledge that isn’t there.”

“Everyone will clearly be a bit nervous and scared before going onstage. But what I do is just remember that this is my passion. Once I get on the stage and see everyone smiling and looking at me, the joy that it brings to me makes me forget all about my nerves.”

― Anthony Gonzalez

“The Princess’s so-called ‘time and space speech’ at the end of ’93 about a year after the formal separation, looking back on it it’s called her retirement from public life but we’ve seen in fact it’s nothing of the kind.”

“We’re always looking over our shoulders, ‘what they will think, what the press will think, what will this one – am I making the right career move?’ When you’re young you have to do all that to survive, I suppose.”

“In the years since I worked with John Hughes, there were many years where I literally had hundred of doors slammed in my face because I wasn’t that kid anymore, and I wasn’t a character actor, and I wasn’t a leading man, and I wasn’t whatever Hollywood was looking for.”

― Anthony Michael Hall

“I’ll never believe I’m any older than 18. I get angry when my body can’t do what an 18-year-old’s does. And looking in the mirror is really a tragic sight. There are many consolations to getting older, but physically, it’s quite unkind. I find that I have as much mobility, but it takes longer to get pretty.”

― Anthony Newley

“Looking back, when my cousins and I were kids, we’d put together these little skits – these 10-minute improv scenes. I didn’t really understand what I was doing – that I was writing these mini-sketches and acting – but we were all totally into it.”

“Winning titles, that’s what I’m looking for.”

“Looking at U.N. staff and budgetary rules and regulations, one might think some of them were designed to prevent, rather than enable, the effective delivery of our mandates. It benefits no one if it takes nine months to deploy a staff member to the field.”

― Apollo Robbins

“We always think of misdirection as, ‘Look over here while I do this over here!’ And that’s not what it is. You can be looking straight at it, and if you’re not thinking about it, you won’t process it. I find that fascinating.”

“My mom thought I might be good for voiceover. She thought I had a cute voice, so maybe I could do a cartoon or something.

“Originality is definitely missing from EDM. There are people looking for it and exploring but I feel it’s so big now it is just getting milked. House music is losing all its melody as it becomes more about how dirty the drop is and how energetic it is. It loses touch with what music really is.”

― Aymeric Laporte

“My mother has a lot of sisters. They had very, very interesting conversations. Because I was a quiet child, I would sit in the room and listen to these stories.

“Ours is a nation of laws: of citizens who live under them and for the citizens who enforce them. So, to a community in Ferguson that is rightly hurting and looking for answers, let me call once again for us to seek some understanding rather than simply holler at each other. Let’s seek to heal rather than to wound each other.”

― Barack Obama

“If people continue to feel like Democrats are looking after poor folks and Republicans are looking after rich folks and nobody is looking after me, then we don’t get a lot of stuff done. And the trend lines evidence the fact that folks have gotten squeezed. And obviously, 2007, 2008 really ripped open for people how vulnerable they were.”

― Barack Obama

“Then, with lots of people doing that without ever looking over their shoulders to see how they were affecting anybody else, it couldn’t work, and it didn’t work, and it just came to a standstill.”

“What people ask for has nothing to do with the value of a property. You might see a listing for $300,000 and think you should make a $250,000 bid. But hyper-focus on what the house is worth. You should know what the house is worth by looking at comparable properties. Base your bid on that.”

― Barbara Corcoran

“The important thing isn’t the house. It’s the ability to make it. You carry that in your brains and in your hands, wherever you go… It’s one thing to carry your life wherever you go. Another thing to always go looking for it somewhere else.”

― Barbara Kingsolver

“Every time I step onto an airplane, I turn to the right and take a good, hard stare into the maw of the engine. I don’t know what I’m looking for. I just do it.”

― Baron Vaughn

“It seems that people are tired of everyone looking the same on television. And this seems especially true for white people. Even white people are tired of watching the same white people. That’s why we’ve been importing them from Australia.”

― Beau Willimon

“I’m always looking for that sense of fun and adventure and even unlikeability. I don’t want to be the obvious leading lady. I have the most fun playing these girls who are a little damaged and maybe a little insecure and trying to overcompensate for it.”

― Becki Newton

“The way I play, it’s very much more a mental game than a physical game. I’m looking for space and where are players leaving space. Defensively, where are we at numerical disadvantages? Do I shift more to the left because they have more players on their right side? It’s about reading the game before the game happens.”

― Becky Sauerbrunn

“The Internet has crept up on us, and we need to know what it is and start looking at it. We have to decide which bits we want, which bits we don’t, and how we’re going to use them – and how we’re going to put pressure on the people who deliver these goods to deliver what we really want.”

― Beeban Kidron

“We try to push such crazy ideals onto young women: the Hollywood version of what they should look like, what they should do, and the kind of Prince Charming they should be looking for. We should just be proud of who we are, because we can’t be anybody else. So what’s the point of trying?”

― Bel Powley

“I love looking out in a crowded theater and seeing a sea of gay men.”

― Belinda Carlisle

“When I left Yahoo, I was really looking for an early stage company that had some complexities and things that needed to be figured out.”

― Belinda Johnson

“I started singing when I was about 3 and dancing soon after. Mom just started looking for outlets where I could perform and availed herself of any opportunity she could in the mountains of North Carolina in the ’70s.”

― Bellamy Young

“Because a person has to be either working or looking for work to be counted as part of the labor force, an increase in the number of people too discouraged to continue their search for work would reduce the unemployment rate, all else being equal – but not for a positive reason.”

― Ben Bernanke

“So after a while, if people won’t accept your excuses, you stop looking for them.”

― Ben Carson

“I would like people to recognize in looking at my story that the person who has the most to do with what happens to you is you. It’s not the environment, it’s not the other people who were there trying to help you or trying to stop you. It’s what you decide to do and how much effort you put behind it.”

“There’s something wonderful about that sort of Poirot, Agatha Christie-style investigation: cross-questioning all the witnesses and checking their stories, looking for means, motive, and opportunity.”

― Ben Miller

“I’ve really enjoyed B.R.P.D. since its first days when Guy Davis was an artist on the title, and if anyone is looking for an end of the world Cthulhu apocalypse title, Mignola and Arcudi and the artists who work the title do a fantastic job.”

― Ben Peek

“I think we should be looking at the defense and seeing where we can actually be more efficient because I think that, you know, sometimes during the contracting process, we lose some efficiencies in that regard.”

― Ben Rhodes

“I spend a lot of time looking at rococo books. And almanacs used to be huge sellers – they were pretty much part of the fabric of life. I thought, this is bizarre, I’d love to buy a book like this, and there isn’t one. So I thought, all right then, this could be fun. I’ll write an almanac.”

― Ben Schott

“I want Pinterest to be human. The Internet’s still so abstract… To me, boards are a very human way of looking at the world.”

― Bernard Cornwell

“I had a really good time working with Jim Cameron. A lot of people didn’t, but I did as I got on with him really quite well. For a director who spends most of his time looking down a lens or in the digitisation studio or working out some graphics, he is actually very good with actors.”

― Bianca Marroquin

“I was writing my Ph.D. in the late 1980s and was keeping an eye on what was happening in the world. It became obvious to me that Russia couldn’t live without computers. I think I worked this out a year before anyone else. I started looking for people who could help import them.”

It was an edge.”

― Brenda Blethyn

“I don’t understand computers. I’ve been unable to construct a working mental model of how they do what they do. I can break software by looking at it. I can blow anything up. Without trying.

― Brenda Laurel

“I learned early in my writing career that if I try to tailor a song for someone else, I’m usually off base. They’re usually looking for something from you with your character.”

― Brene Brown

“If I could go back in time, I would have loved to have done more with Triple H. He blossomed into a bigger star after I left.

― Bret Hart

“It was really tough as a kid going to a Braves game. It was a guaranteed loss. You’re looking at 100 losses a year. I was a huge baseball fan, played it for quite a while. But when ’91 happened, with Smoltz and Glavine, it turned around, and I will say it made it pretty sweet.”

― Brian Dennehy

“A way to make new music is to imagine looking back at the past from a future and imagine music that could have existed but didn’t. Like East African free jazz, which as far as I know does not exist.”

― Brian Eno

“In the future, you won’t buy artists’ works; you’ll buy software that makes original pieces of ‘their’ works, or that recreates their way of looking at things. You could buy a Shostakovich box, or you could buy a Brahms box. You might want some Shostakovich slow-movement-like music to be generated. So then you use that box.”

― Chris Ware

“Some of my favorite records growing up were Christmas albums. The ones I liked best were the albums that you could listen to from start to finish. You could put them on while you’re decorating the tree or driving around looking at Christmas lights.”

― Chris Young

“For 35 years, I’ve said, ‘I’ll never go solo.’ But after a period of time – and this isn’t just for an artist, but for anybody – all the things you never wanted to do eventually become the only things left that you haven’t done. So they start looking pretty interesting.”

― Chrissie Hynde

“There was once this viral photo of the Pope doing his Pope-mobile parade, and everyone had their phones up. But there was this one old woman looking over the fence so beautifully at him. She was totally in the moment. For me, then, I think there shouldn’t be any phones at a Pope-mobile situation – or at a Beyonce concert.”

― Chrissy Teigen

― Christian Bale

“I think, mostly for people on the outside, it’s a lot about numbers or stats. More or more. That’s how the football world is going, in that direction. But I’m not really looking into it. I’m just trying to be the best I can, to create as much as possible.”

― Christian Eriksen

“Of course it’s nice to get recognition, but I’m not looking for it. I just do my thing. If it comes, it comes. But it’s not what you play for.”

― Christopher Lloyd

“I had told my agents that I didn’t want to do television. I can’t believe I had that gall, looking back on it. I would never condescend to do TV, and then ‘Taxi’ called up for a guest spot in the first season. And my common sense kind of took over, I guess.”

― Christopher Lloyd

“When you’re making a film, you don’t really have time to consider what the whole of your film is.

Then, as you move away from it, you start to look at it objectively and think, ‘What could I have done better?’”

― Christopher Meloni

“For the last 10 years, I’ve felt increasing pressure to stop shooting film and start shooting video, but I’ve never understood why. It’s cheaper to work on film, it’s far better looking, it’s the technology that’s been known and understood for a hundred years, and it’s extremely reliable.”

― Christopher Priest

“Everything else – music, cinematography, costumes, design, acting – can be judged at face value. But when you’re looking at editing, you don’t know what the totality of the material was, and you don’t know the working dynamic between a director and an editor – whether the editor was micromanaged or given free rein. It’s very difficult.”

― Christopher Rouse

“I used to be prettier than I am, but I think I look better now. I was a pretty boy. Particularly in my early movies. I don’t like looking at them so much. There’s a sort of pretty thing about me.”

“I don’t like flying at the best of times. And as I get older, I like it less and less. I don’t much like driving, either. I prefer to be driven. And, when I’m in London, I don’t even like walking on the street. I can never get used to looking the right way when I cross the street.”

― Christopher Walken

“After my final semester at Yale in December of 2013, I made a scary choice. Instead of looking for work – feeling over-read and underweight – that for a few months I would go wherever the wind carried me. I would become a student of the world, and I would eat.”

― Clemantine Wamariya

“It is so important to share experiences with one another. Humans are so often in their own heads and not looking to others. But we have to realize that we are always invited to be a part of someone else’s story – we are together in this.”

― Clemantine Wamariya

“Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era – it’s a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good.”

― Clement Mok

“If someone has it inside them to commit an act, then that act would be committed anyway. It’s very easy for someone to place the blame on something other than the person who committed the act. It’s people looking for scapegoats, you know?”

― Cliff Burton

“In ‘Changeling,’ I tried to show something you’d never see nowadays – a kid sitting and looking at the radio. Just sitting in front of the radio and listening. Your mind does the rest.”

― Clint Eastwood

“When I was looking for financing while making ‘Hellraiser,’ I wish there was a studio like Project Greenlight Digital Studios behind me.”

― Clive Barker

― Clive Thompson

“I was always looking ahead. I used to do all kinds of things for entertainment. When I was young, we had no radio, no TV. We were 30 miles from the public library, out in the sticks in Western Kansas, and so I’d do arithmetic exercises.”

“I handed out flyers in malls, candies in gasoline stations; helped set up tarpaulins in bars. I played bit roles in several indie movies. Looking back, I can say it has definitely been a long journey.”

― Coco Martin

“Oh, the dilemma of the summer music festival. On one hand, we ladies try very hard to look cute walking around those muddy fields in our cowboy boots and cut-offs. On the other hand, we want to look like we really didn’t try at all and just rolled out of bed looking this way.”

― Coco Rocha

It was called ‘Almost Heaven: The Songs of John Denver.’”

― Colin Powell

“I like how you can go back and watch David Lean and John Ford and see the influence that had on Steven Spielberg, especially David Lean, in the camerawork, and yet, you don’t watch any Spielberg movie and think of David Lean. Once you’re looking for it, you see it all, but it’s not in your face.”

“It’s glorious to be able to go onto the Internet and hear any kind of music anywhere, from anywhere, and get it instantly. But there’s also something glorious about having a record with a sleeve and looking at the artwork, putting it on the turntable and playing it, there’s still something romantic to me about that.”

― Conor Oberst

“Looking back across the years, so many pictures flash on the screen of my memory that just as I begin to see one clearly, another slides in, blotting out the first, itself to be pushed aside by the next and the next and the next.”

― Conrad Veidt

“I was looking at YouTube and seeing things really heat up again in terms of the popularity of talking about serious political or philosophical issues and almost no one doing leftist content that engaged with the other side in any way. I was like, ‘I bet I can do this,’ so I gave it a shot, and it’s worked out better than I expected.”

“I oppose the personhood amendment. Years ago I’d said that I’d supported it – it was the wrong idea. Looking at it, talking to people of Colorado, I don’t support it.”

― Cory Gardner

“You can go up in the air and everything is gone. You know, you don’t think about baseball. You don’t think about anything. It’s just something that takes you away from everyday life. I love being in a plane and looking down to see traffic on the freeway.”

― Cory Lidle

“Houdini connected to people on an emotional level so that when he would escape that straight jacket it wasn’t about the straight jacket. It was about people looking at it and escaping poverty. When you have that it’s the truest form of magic.”

― Criss Angel

“Looking back, I remember my family laughing a lot. We were never the kind of people that dwelled on hard times. My family laughs when things are tough. Growing up like that, I got used to making jokes about things that were difficult. So when I started doing stand-up, that’s what I went towards.”

― Cristela Alonzo

“I’ve auditioned for musicals a lot, but I think my voice didn’t really match what they were looking for. I went to school for musical theater for a year and dropped out. Legit musicals are not quite my forte.”

“Many churches are measuring the wrong things. We measure things like attendance and giving, but we should be looking at more fundamental things like anger, contempt, honesty, and the degree to which people are under the thumb of their lusts. Those things can be counted, but not as easily as offerings.”

― Dan Gilroy

“Well, the average person comes home from work really tired, and just wants to flip through channels until they land on the thing that’s the least objectionable to them. They’re not looking for their new favorite TV show because they know that that search will take forever and they’ll go to bed unhappy.”

― Dan Harmon

“There’s the same percentage of genius happening in both genders, but there’s less women writing scripts and out there looking for the job.”

― Dana Carvey

“I am really looking for a chance to direct. I feel like that’s kind of the next frontier for me. I know that it’s really hard to do, but I feel like I want to have a chance to try and translate something I’ve written and try and get a tone across.”

― Dana Fox

“Part of the great thing of looking back on how I went from the cattle ranch to the White House was, I was a country music DJ. I saw Garth Brooks perform for free in 1992 at the Colorado State Fair where I met this person who knew about this graduate school program.”

― Dana Perino

“The novel is about, for me, sustained and organized looking. I do think that people have a hunger for a sustained engagement, that concentration that the book can offer.”

― Dana Spiotta

“You have to remember that you are part of a craft, and you are constantly building your craft. Ultimately, we are artists, so it comes from us. And I think the tricky thing about being an actor is that we’re looking for someone else to give us something… Thinking like an artist and thinking like an out-of-work actor are two different things.”

― Danai Gurira

“I went to about one frat party a year. A year seemed to be enough time for me to forget how much I didn’t like frat parties, and my friends would eventually convince me to go to one. Cheap beer, guys looking for a quick hook-up, and girls playing ‘dumb’ to get in on the hook-up. I just never got into it.”

― Danica McKellar

― Daniel Craig

“You know, I’m not a huge fan of the concept of ‘passion’ when it comes to careers. Instead of trying to answer the daunting question of ‘What’s your passion?’ it’s better simply to watch what you do when you’ve got time of your own and nobody’s looking.”

― Daniel H. Pink

“I’m not a huge fan of the concept of ‘passion’ when it comes to careers. Instead of trying to answer the daunting question of, ‘What’s your passion?’ it’s better simply to watch what you do when you’ve got time of your own and nobody’s looking.”

― Daniel Lyons

“We must not let ourselves be seen as rushing around the world looking for arguments… Nor should we let ourselves be seen as ignoring allies, disillusioning friends, thinking only of ourselves in the most narrow terms. That is not how we survived the 20th century. Nor will it serve in the 21st.”

― Daniel Patrick Moynihan

“The White House New Media team circulates multiple highlights each day of what people are looking for online – Twitter trending topics, popular Google searches, etc. – and it gives us a sense of what’s breaking through, what isn’t, and a sanity check for what the larger online population cares about at any given time.”

― Danny Elfman

“I guess I’ve played a lot of failures, which is a Huston quality, I guess. I love losers, though, and have never met anyone who hasn’t been one sometime.

― Darcey Bussell

“I used to have a really hard time talking to people or looking them in the eye. Or I’d always, like, hide behind my mom, and, like, when we went to restaurants, I didn’t like ordering my food. I’d have my mom order it because I didn’t like talking to the waiters.”

― Darren Aronofsky

“’90210′ was looking at teenagers from a perspective that hadn’t really been seen on television, though it had been seen in movies like some John Hughes films. I don’t know if you want to say ‘90210’ was real, but what the characters were going through was relatable – in a very glamorous environment.”

― Darren Star

― Dave Pelzer

“We’ve really got to stop looking to Washington to fix our problems. It obviously doesn’t have the ability to do that. People who are successful are not successful because of the president.”

― Dave Rowntree

“I moved to L.A. after my landlord in Brooklyn tripled my rent. I spent months looking for other places to move to in New York, then one day I was in California eating a grapefruit, and I was like, ‘This is what they taste like?’ So I decided to move to L.A. and build a studio in my house.”

― Dave Sitek

― David Bergen

“Both poker and investing are games of incomplete information. You have a certain set of facts and you are looking for situations where you have an edge, whether the edge is psychological or statistical.”

― David Einhorn

“With poker, you have a resolution of the hand within a couple of minutes. Whereas, even if the thought process in investing is very much the same, you’re looking at an outcome that could be 2, 3, 4, 5 years from when you make the original decision. And the mindset related to that is very different.”

“The CIA in real life, we know, is looking for new kinds of cover.

― David MacKenzie

“It was only after a while, after photographing mines and clear-cutting of forests in Maine, that I realized I was looking at the components of photography itself.

“I think, in some ways, that is the balm of stories, of fables, of tales: it’s the way we’re wired. We have always needed to distill what we’re going through and try to understand it by looking either backwards or forwards. And the hardest is to look in the now.”

― Debra Granik

“The process of starting up a new film is one of looking through a lot of material and trying to find something you really like. And it does sometimes take a minute.”

― Denis O’Hare

“’2001: A Space Odyssey’ is a movie that really impressed me as a teenager. And also ‘Blade Runner.’ And ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ is also one of my favorites. I’m always looking for sci-fi material, and it’s difficult to find original and strong material that’s not just about weaponry.”

― Denis Villeneuve

“With each character in a movie, I’m looking for a human being. I’m looking for a person.

I’m interested in people that are human beings that are alive.”

“When I come to England, I don’t claim England; I don’t own it. I feel a great kinship because of the literature and the landscape. I have great affection for Edward Thomas and Philip Larkin, but there’s still this distance: looking on at what I’m admiring, separate from what I am. And that’s OK.”

― Derek Walcott

“There is an environment where someone is always looking for someone to make an error. They’re always looking not for the good things, the wonderful things the president and first lady are doing, they’re looking for an error or to criticize. And it’s not conducive to good work.”

“You have a dream 35 years ago – doesn’t come to fruition, but you move on with life. But it’s somewhere back there. Then you turn 60, and your mom just dies, and you’re looking for something. And the dream comes waking out of your imagination.”

― Diana Nyad

“The highs were high, the awe, I’m not a religious person, but I’ll tell you, to be in the azure blue of the Gulf Stream as if, as you’re breathing, you’re looking down miles and miles and miles, to feel the majesty of this blue planet we live on, it’s awe-inspiring.”

― Diana Nyad

“Years ago I was at a function, and I must have said something really rude to Paul Daniels the magician. I can’t recall what I said, but I remember him looking utterly crestfallen.

― Diane Paulus

“It’s very important to go back and keep in mind the distinction between handling these events as criminal acts, which was the way we did before 9/11, and then looking at 9/11 and saying, ‘This is not a criminal act,’ not when you destroy 16 acres of Manhattan, kill 3,000 Americans, blow a big hole in the Pentagon. That’s an act of war.”

― Dick Cheney

― Don McCullin

“I never went out looking for glory.”

― Don Rickles

“It’s pretty easy in theatre. The comedy’s either physical or verbal, and you’re looking at the whole frame at once. But TV executives want close-ups. I keep telling them to look at Preston Sturges’ movies. He’ll do a whole scene without a cut in it, and it’s a riot.”

― Don Scardino

“It’s funny because I think that genre literature can be looked down on by literature literature. And I like that! I like being scorned; I like people looking down their noses at us a little bit… It gives us a little chip on our shoulder.”

“There’s a great deal of stripping away; in early drafts, I may say the same thing two or three times, and each may be appropriate, but I try to pick the best and improve it. I work on sound a great deal, and I will change a word or two, revise punctuation and line breaks, looking for the sound I want.”

― Donald Hall

― Donald Pleasence

“When I’ve written episodes of ‘Doctor Who’, when it comes to the monster chasing somebody, it’s the Doctor and the companion, running down the corridor, being chased by a guy with a stick and a tennis ball on the end. Whereas, when I see the rushes of ‘Being Human’, we’re actually looking at the werewolf, and it just looks real.”

― Donald Sumpter

“I wasn’t satisfied just to earn a good living. I was looking to make a statement.”

― Donald Trump

― Donna Shalala

“Our young people are out on the streets looking for parties, a place to dance, looking for a scene. No institutions are providing them with alternatives, fun things to do that don’t necessarily have alcohol at the center.”

― Donna Shalala

“The storytelling gift is innate: one has it or one doesn’t. But style is at least partly a learned thing: one refines it by looking and listening and reading and practice – by work.”

― Douglas Booth

“For years, I longed to hear Armstrong describe what it was like to contemplate Earth from 238,900 miles away. Former Space Center director George Abbey once told me that many NASA astronauts felt that looking at Earth was akin to a religious experience.”

― Douglas Coupland

“When Steve Jobs toured Xerox PARC and saw computers running the first operating system that used Windows and a mouse, he assumed he was looking at a new way to work a personal computer. He brought the concept back to Cupertino and created the Mac, then Bill Gates followed suit, and the rest is history.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“No matter how invasive the technologies at their disposal, marketers and pollsters never come to terms with the living process through which people choose products or candidates; they are looking at what people just bought or thought, and making calculations based on that after-the-fact data.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“I have even begun to think that I am caring for Argentina and Chile perhaps more than Argentines and Chileans. I feel like I’m sort of a de facto citizen, because I am looking after their national patrimony – which is the land – very carefully.”

― Douglas Tompkins

“I’m developing some high-frame-rate 3-D processes that are going to be, I hope, indistiguishable from reality. This will be quite an unusual cinematic event – you don’t just tell an ordinary story, it’s more of a first-person experience where the melodrama doesn’t get in the way. Being inside the movie rather than looking at the movie.”

― Douglas Trumbull

“I like the unknown. That’s what Terry Malick has always really liked. He’s always looking for the unexpected.”

― Douglas Trumbull

“I feel I’m such a big part of that insecurity that some girls might have because of my job, that girls think they have to be that picture. And even boys, they think that that picture exists, and it’s so frustrating because I don’t look like that picture – I wake up not looking like that picture.”

“I cannot live a life where I’m deprived. I’d much rather be five, 10 pounds heavier. With my luck, I’ll get myself to that perfect goal weight, and I’ll get hit by a bus. Then I’ll be like… looking at myself from some afterlife going, ‘You idiot. You could have had that agnolotti, dummy.’”

― Drew Barrymore

“One of the things that’s been nice about my career is that I’ve been able to do so many different things, and variety keeps your creative soul fulfilled.

― Duff McKagan

“I think my sensibilities about storytelling and character just automatically come into play when I’m trying to work on any kind of narrative.

― Dylan McDermott

“The measure of a conversation is how much mutual recognition there is in it; how much shared there is in it. If you’re talking about what’s in your own head, or without thought to what people looking and listening will feel, you might as well be in a room talking to yourself.”

― Dylan Moran

“The case for sponsorships in commercial spaceflight is compelling and could dramatically impact the economics of space tourism. Global brands are looking for fresh, new ways to position themselves on the leading edge of their categories.”

― Edgar Mitchell

“We were shooting ‘Hot Fuzz’ in my hometown of Wells, Somerset, and I remember looking at the dailies and going, ‘Wait, there’s a Starbucks in the shot. I don’t remember that being there!’ We had to digitally remove it; the same thing happened with a McDonald’s in another scene. I had this sensation of, ‘What’s going on here? Where am I?’”

― Edgar Wright

“There’s a thing in the U.K., particularly in London, where it’s kind of the idea of subculture and counterculture and the outside and the idea that it’s great to be a freak, and the freak always wins. So I think English girls are a lot less scared of being the freak or looking like an idiot.”

“Astrology’s a moving system that depends on where you’re looking at it from on Earth. My horoscope here in London would be completely different to down in New Zealand.”

― Eleanor Catton

“’The Luminaries’ is such a different book to ‘The Rehearsal.’ There are only a couple of things that link the two books: there’s a certain preoccupation with looking at relationships from the outside, being shut out of human intimacy; and then there’s patterning.”

― Eleanor Catton

“Looking at female candidates today, other women are the hardest on them, especially older women who were brought up in a different culture.”

― Elias Hicks

“The obvious choice isn’t always the best choice, but sometimes, by golly, it is. I don’t stop looking as soon I find an obvious answer, but if I go on looking, and the obvious-seeming answer still seems obvious, I don’t feel guilty about keeping it.”

― Eliezer Yudkowsky

“It’s kind of an embarrassing story – that’s why it’s called ‘The Idiot.’ But looking back at your past self, you see that this person had reasons for everything she did. There’s a whole lot of awkwardness, but really, what should one be embarrassed about?”

― Elif Batuman

“Whether I’m pursuing a story or conducting an interview or I’m at the bakery implementing policy and procedure, I have a team who is looking to me. I think my persona is the same for both jobs – perhaps a little bit more in command with the bakery. I say that only because we have so many more employees, and ultimately I make every single decision.”

― Elizabeth Chambers

“Sometimes I have a nervous breakdown over my suitcase – over socks – because your brain just goes, ‘I just can’t pack again. I can’t.’ You’re looking at your suitcase going, ‘I’m in five countries in two weeks, and it’s four different seasons.’ That’s when my brain melts.”

― Elizabeth Warren

“It worries me about what happens if people in government are looking for that next job: ‘Yeah I’m working now, not as much money as I could be making, but when I leave here, that’s where I’m headed.’ That ultimately infects whatever it is that they’re doing.”

― Elizabeth Warren

“People are always looking for something new and something to latch on to and to back something from an early stage.”

“When a 12-year-old, a 13-year-old, so desperately wants a baby what she’s looking for is the kind of unconditional love a child gives a mother and a mother gives a child.”

― Ellen Barkin

“I just would never go audition, and yet I was in very visible places where people would come looking for actors. I say I’m lazy, though I’m sure if I were in therapy for a lot of years, it would turn out to be a lot more than laziness. After awhile, it was, like, too embarrassing for me not to go on auditions. I had to be humiliated into it.”

― Ellen Barkin

“I’d never say I’ll never have a facelift, but I’m way too scared of looking like a different person. I have no philosophical or political position on plastic surgery; I just don’t want to look crazy. And I don’t like not being able to tell how old someone is: It’s creepy.”

“As chief scientist, it’s sort of my job to look at bridges between what we do and to see the connections. But when we try to understand how are planets around other stars habitable… to looking back at the Earth – how are the changes that are taking place, how are they going to affect humanity?”

― Ellen Stofan

“I also believe our country made a promise to veterans and their families. Veterans have kept their end of the bargain, and now, the VA is looking to pull out the rug.”

― Emily Atack

“When In The Style came to me asking if I wanted to do a collection, I said very clearly what kind of collection I wanted it to be, and the lovely thing was that they were looking to do the same kind of thing. I stated that I didn’t want any retouching, and I want the women modelling the clothes to represent all women.”

― Emily Atack

“There is an often-told story that Silicon Valley is filled with women looking to cash in by marrying wealthy tech moguls. Whether there really is a significant number of such women is debatable.”

― Emmitt Smith

― Enzo Amore

“I don’t view myself as a practitioner of a particular skill or method. I’m constantly looking at what’s the most interesting problem that I could possibly work on. I really try to figure out what sort of scientist I need to be in order to solve the problem I’m interested in solving.”

“Looking back on my career, some of the hardest times – eight people at a show, 12 people on a bus – were some of the most fun.”

― Eric Church

“I think everybody has their own way of looking at their lives as some kind of pilgrimage. Some people will see their role as a pilgrim in terms of setting up a fine family, or establishing a business inheritance. Everyone’s got their own definition.”

― Eric Clapton

“’My Father’s Eyes’ is very personal. I realized that the closest I ever came to looking in my father’s eyes was when I looked into my son’s eyes.”

― Eric Clapton

“Going to the gym and looking for a specific result is a short-lived existence, as opposed to going to the gym and adopting it as a lifestyle. Develop a routine, because it’s much harder to break it if you have one. If you have no routine, you have nothing to break, so discipline goes out the window.”

― Eric Dane

“I’m not a big watcher of myself. You start looking at things you shouldn’t be looking at that have nothing to do with anything of importance.”

― Eric Dane

“I’m just not the outgoing bubble of energy. But if I know you, it’s different. Practical jokes. Have fun. I’m not looking for any new friends. I got my friends.”

“We’re looking to rebrand L.A. Not in some sort of radical way, but we’ve forgotten to sell this city, internationally and nationally… it’s important for us to say who we are.”

― Eric Garcetti

“Think about Kennedy. Think about Carter. Think about Clinton. Think about Obama. They’ve all been in their forties and from outside Washington, or underdogs in one way or another. I just think that Americans are looking everywhere, saying, ‘Hey, show me some authenticity. Show me somebody who’s practical. Show me people who run things.’”

― Eric Garcetti

“On things like the minimum wage, where cities as well as states are increasingly looking at income disparity, mayors will have, I think, a very strong voice.”

“When it comes to police officers, I have concerns about the training that they receive. This whole notion of implicit bias, looking at people and having stereotypical reactions to them on the basis of their ethnicity.”

― Eric Holder

“I think that people, despite my law enforcement background, view me as taking these consistently progressive stands, and I think that, philosophically, there is a desire to get at that person. But I think the stands I have taken are totally consistent with a person who is looking at things realistically, factually.”

― Eric Holder

“It is the thing that keeps me up at night – the notion that you have individuals in the United States who are looking at computer screens and who are becoming radicalized.”

― Eric Holder

“Smart on Crime says if you commit violent crimes, you should go to jail, and go to jail for extended periods of time. For people who are engaged in non-violent crimes – any crimes, for that matter – we are looking for sentences that are proportionate to the conduct that you engaged in.”

― Eric Holder

“Carl von Rokitansky is one of the founders of scientific medicine and systematized it, looking at what the clinical symptoms mean. The medicine we practice today, which is infinitely more sophisticated, is Rokitansky’s medicine.”

― Eric Kandel

“I’m really looking forward to just concentrating on the swimming part now instead of what’s going on with me outside the pool.”

― Eric Shanteau

“All I ever wanted to do was get a great job on a TV show. When I read ‘Modern Family’ and started looking at what was available – I obviously couldn’t play Gloria; I couldn’t play Claire. When I saw the character of Cam, I was like, ‘I have to have a shot at this,’ because I thought it was a character that would be really fun to play.”

― Eric Stonestreet

“I just keep looking for things that are interesting and keep calm as possible about it all, not worrying about being in a ‘box.’”

― Erica Durance

“I’m always looking for a sign – not in a spooky, supernatural way, but in a ‘neurotic writer’ kind of way.”

― Erik Larson

“It’s like being involved in a detective story, looking for that thing that nobody else has found.”

― Erik Larson

“The reason I choose the stories I choose – and it’s why it takes me so long to find ideas – is that I’m looking for that very thing. I want an idea that begins, I want a middle that is compelling and will bring readers along, and I definitely want an ending.”

― Erik Larson

“I was once again looking for a book idea, and I remembered Holmes, but I specifically remembered that there was this World’s Fair thing in the background. I thought, ‘I’ll read about the fair.’ I had nothing better to do. I’d dismissed about a dozen ideas, and I was getting sort of antsy. I started reading, and that’s where I got hooked.”

― Erik Larson

“It was a civilian ship, and the Lusitania could outrun any submarine. So this population of people was very confident that Cunard and the Royal Navy would be looking after them. Why weren’t they under convoy? That’s the real question.”

― Erik Larson

“The Nazis hijacked the Jewish thing early on by defining it as ‘the Jewish problem’ and started looking for a solution. These are not just words.”

― Erik Larson

― Erika Christensen

“By the time the traditionally male lexicographers become interested in looking at fashion words, their origins are lost in the mists of time.”

― Erin McKean

“Most of the words you know and love and use every day are not words you learned by looking them up in a dictionary and reading a definition.”

― Erin McKean

“When I first began modeling, I was very conventional looking. I had hair down to my waist in a side parting – almost church-like. But beneath the sheath of hair lay this Amazonian, strong-looking frame.”

― Erin O’Connor

“I’m interested in looking for solutions because it’s become the case that in fashion you’re either a villain or a victim. Look at the industry’s very limited remit in terms of body size, for example.”

“The excursion is the same when you go looking for your sorrow as when you go looking for your joy.”

― Eudora Welty

“State constitutions typically provide that the state first has to service its debt, then make it pension payments, and then pay for services. What we don’t know is whether that order will be enforced. And ultimately, the busted state is going to be looking to the federal government for a bailout. Think Greece, but on a much bigger scale.”

― Eugene Fama

“I always looked at myself as a physicist learning new tricks by looking at nature.”

― Eugene Parker

“I can’t think of anything I regret. Everything I’ve done, I’ve enjoyed doing. I’ve had five husbands, four children. I’ve done it all, but mainly I’ve enjoyed studying fish and being underwater with them, being in their natural habitat, looking at the fish and the fish looking at me.”

― Eva Simons

“Some of our stuff ends up looking too corporate. I’m going to be a lot stricter from now on.”

― Evan Dando

“The promoted tweet is a real tweet that a company may have sent out that they want more distribution for. They will buy key words for it. If people are looking for something related, it will show up.”

― Evan Williams

“That’s the biggest problem with boxing in the United States. They do not promote it like they used to, when it used to be Howard Cosell and they showed it on ‘Wide World of Sports.’ Everybody knew all the fighters. Everybody was looking forward to the year when the Olympics came on.”

― Fay Godwin

“Experience is what you get while looking for something else.”

― Federico Fellini

“I am quite fortunate, because I can still be quite incognito. If you go out looking for attention, then you’ll attract it, but if you’re just getting on with your life, particularly in London where everyone is engrossed in what they’re doing, you can keep a measure of anonymity.”

― Felicity Jones

“I’ve always been a bit of a decorator. I think if I wasn’t a singer I’d probably be in stage setting or interior design or something. I like clutter and I’m quite visually greedy. I can’t have things to be plain; I have to have things looking interesting… maybe I’m just a frustrated interior designer stuck in a singing career.”

― Frances Burney

“I was often told that I wasn’t a thing. ‘She’s not pretty enough. She’s not tall enough. She’s not thin enough. She’s not fat enough.’ I thought, ‘O.K., someday you’re going to be looking for someone not, not, not, not, and there I’ll be.’”

― Frances McDormand

“I’m always looking to rock out. But it isn’t really about rocking out versus being mellow, in terms of your personal satisfaction. In the end, you just want to be good.

― Fred Savage

“There seems to be a vulnerability at the networks in late night. They are losing more and more audience, particularly young viewers who are now looking at cable television. ‘Tonight’ is an old show. CBS has reruns, and having a public affairs series like ‘Nightline’ on ABC is a big mistake.”

― Gael Garcia Bernal

“I think voters want somebody who understands their problems. You’re right that they don’t expect the president to fix everything. When he’s wrestling with Congress and Wall Street and the rest of the world, they hope he’ll be looking at things from their vantage point.”

― Gail Collins

“There’s more student debt than credit card debt! Everywhere I go, I run into young people trying to build careers while they keep shelling out money on their education loans. If the economy is looking for a new generation of home-buyers, I can’t imagine they’ll get it from these folks.”

― Gail Collins

“If you take five wickets, someone has to take the catches. If you score a hundred, someone has to be there with you. You haven’t done it individually. Some contributions may be small, but they are still tangible. You have to look at it from a team point of view. When you start looking at it as an individual, then you have no team.”

― Garfield Sobers

“It was close to like a 67- or 70-day shoot for ‘Tron’ on stage, in the suit. You can’t even sit down during the day because of all the cables that divide the foam rubber and all the electrical circuits. We had these stools that were tall with a bicycle seat on them and you’re just looking at a blue screen all day.”

― Garrett Hedlund

“I’ve been told I’m too good looking for certain roles, but that’s okay, it just motivates me to go deeper.”

― Garry Shandling

“To be thrown onto the stand-up stage is an experience that you cannot fathom until you’re actually there, because there’s no place to go, and everyone is looking at you and you can’t even see them because of the lights. And yet you have to manage to start talking and be funny on top of it.”

― Garry Shandling

“Looking forward, it might prove constructive to examine the true historical record of an issue prior to assuming the worst of anyone’s motive and deconstructing and questioning anyone’s Democratic bona fides. After all, we liberals got feelings.”

― Gary Hume

“We should be open to a discussion on keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. I don’t know how that manifests itself, but I’m looking to get elected president of the United States.

“If you begin to think you’re something you’re not, you’re looking in the wrong mirror.”

“After Apollo 17, America stopped looking towards the next horizon. The United States had become a space-faring nation, but threw it away. We have sacrificed space exploration for space exploitation, which is interesting but scarcely visionary.”

― Gene Cernan

“The moon is bland in color. I call it shades of gray. You know, the only color we see is what we bring or the Earth, which is looking down upon us all the time. And to find orange soil on the moon was a surprise.”

― Gene Cernan

“My makeup artist likes to define my brows with Maybelline Brow Drama. We brush up on the part closest to my nose and it’s straight after that. Then, I like to use the matte brown shades from Maybelline The Nudes Palette to shadow my eyes, but without it looking like I’m wearing much.”

― Gigi Hadid

“Some writers and producers are currently writing a sitcom for me, so we’ll see what happens there. I’m somewhat reluctant to talk about some of the upcoming projects that I’m working on; I’ve a lot of stuff on the go, including five pictures that I’m looking at producing.”

“Anyone looking for a black cashmere sweater isn’t going to come to me.”

― Giles Deacon

“My designs are slightly subversive in their way; it can be in the cut or the colour, but they’re always obtainable: they’re not so difficult that a 40-year-old woman wanting to go to a cocktail party looking foxy and a little bit different in something well-made would be alienated by them.”

― Giles Deacon

“I am really looking forward to walking past people on the street wearing my clothes and know I am designing for an everyday woman.”

― Gillian Jacobs

“There are a few books I can recommend, but one you should read for sure is ‘Do More Faster,’ a book full of advice for young entrepreneurs. Looking back at the early days of Booking.com, I recognize a lot of things that feature in this the book – like ‘fail fast, learn quickly.’”

“Using science to tell us what customers are looking for is second nature for us here.”

― Gillian Tans

― Gin Wigmore

“You can’t go round looking like a rag.”

― Gin Wigmore

“Being an actor somehow can be a perverse extension of that feeling we generally all have as children, that feeling of wanting to please. Of course you’re looking for affirmation, encouragement.”

― Gina McKee

“I remember sitting in the theater watching ‘Bridesmaids,’ and I’m doubled over laughing, and then I’m crying in the same movie. It’s the overwhelming feeling, as I’m looking up and seeing these women, and I’m realizing how rare it is to see that.”

― Gina Prince-Bythewood

“If I get a note on my script or my films, what I say to a studio executive is that, ‘You know, this is the film of my legacy, and I never want to be sitting in a theater looking up on the screen and seeing something that I don’t believe in.’ I will never do that.”

“Skilling is one area where some researchers are looking at outcomes and finding that while there are lots of people who are joining and completing skilling programmes, it is not getting fully translated into getting and keeping jobs.

― Goapele

“I have been working as an actor for 16-17 years now. The funny thing is I still feel awkward in communicating with the public as a star. It hasn’t been long since my drama ‘Goblin’ ended, and I’m looking forward for some time to rest.”

― Gordon W. Allport

“This is the story, this is your character, I have the sense of the landscape, I have the sense of the scene, I have all that stuff.

“My wife Mariana is a good photographer too and, like me, she just picks up a camera and takes a picture when she sees something, rather than looking too deeply into it.”

― Graeme Le Saux

“Since I’ve been hired to contribute to the storyline of ‘Doom 4’ I can say what was always true anyway. I’m working. You see, for a writer, lots of stuff that doesn’t look like working is actually working. Looking out of the window, for example. Balancing a pencil on the edge of the desk in order to find its exact fulcrum. Playing ‘Doom.’”

― Graham Joyce

“We are excited about the music, past and present and future, and are really looking forward to playing.”

― Graham Nash

“What has happened is that to some degree they have taken an attitude where they don’t listen to demos of diverse subject matters. They’re looking for demos like the record the guy on the left just did.”

“I’m losing my hair. I’m overweight. It’s not like that’s at the top of the list when women go looking for a man. It’s like – complete collapse, every year.”

― Graydon Carter

“Wilson won re-election in 1916, his campaign running on the slogan, ‘He kept us out of war.’ But he could then betray his anti-war supporters knowing that a rising political coalition – made up, in part, of men looking to redeem a lost war by finding new wars to fight – had his back.”

― Greg Grandin

“People are doing what they can these days and looking for creative ways to sell music.”

― Greg Laswell

“Grain isn’t structured like a screen door that you’re looking through, but pixels are. Film-based grain is just all over the place, one frame totally different from the next. So your edges are coolly sharp and have a different feeling, an organic feeling rather than this mechanic feeling you get with digital.”

― Greg MacGillivray

“I know I don’t throw very hard anymore, but I’d like to think I can still hurt a guy who’s not looking.”

― Gretchen Carlson

“I love looking out at a sea of people. It’s mind-blowing. But I also like playing clubs.”

― GRiZ

“My agent knows what I’m looking for. And I’m also looking for a new agent, too, so I’m putting it out there. Again, I’m not going to turn down every role, because there is no bad role, really. It’s all what you bring to the role, but that traditional, ‘Stand here and open a rope,’ I’m not doing it.”

― Grizz Chapman

“The future of the Republican Party, all the different folks looking to lead the Republican Party at the national level in the future, recognize we should do immigration reform.”

“Usually, when I read something, I’m looking for the story first. And then, when I re-read it, I check every part of it to see whether every scene is necessary. You imagine yourself watching the movie, to see whether or not you’re losing the through-line of the story.”

― Gus Van Sant

“Usually when I read something, first of all I’m looking for the story and then when I reread it, I’m sort of checking every part of it to see if every scene is necessary.”

“With bad movies, I have this image in my head of the director and the editor in the editing room watching a scene that is not happening, looking at each other and saying, ‘Put some music in there.’”

― Gustavo Santaolalla

“But by the time you get there and you get home, it winds up being a lot of time out. So I’m getting the itch to build, I know that. I keep looking at my stacks of wood and what I can do with it.”

― Guy Clark

“We need to see, and agree that what we seek already lives within us, and we within it. Now we know our one great task: watch for whatever promises us freedom, and then quietly, consciously refuse to see ourselves through the eyes of what we know is incomplete. Then we live wholeness itself, instead of spending our lives looking for it.”

― Guy Finley

“A few people have said my granddad looks like me, but I reckon he’s far better looking.”

― Guy Martin

“A person looking after a frail former lover is not working and not contributing to economic growth. But if he or she stopped, the state would probably have to take over, thereby adding to growth. So, to increase growth, we should stop looking after our loved ones. Could anybody explain to a passing Martian how this makes sense?”

― Guy Standing

“Think of how much time is spent looking and applying for jobs. Some of those who have read my book on the precariat have told me they have applied for thousands of jobs. This is scarcely leisure; it is work.”

― Guy Standing

“We’re not paying attention to the fact that Hillary Clinton is running in 2006. Everyone is looking to her for the future. It’s the same with anybody else who’s positioning themselves.”

― Gwen Ifill

“I don’t have any rift with President Obama at all. I think that he is operating in an entirely different arena than I’m dealing in. I represent my constituents in the Fourth Congressional District. I’m looking out admittedly for much more narrow interests. I represent the fourth-poorest district.”

“In the business arena, the standard rules of morality don’t apply. What we’re really looking for is efficiency. It doesn’t do anyone any good to be nice to the weak. In a certain sense, competition is inefficient.”

― Hal Price

“We need new stories, but I am looking forward to ‘The Dark Crystal’.”

“I started looking at fashion magazines, specifically ‘British Vogue.’ I was reading a lot about Cecil Beaton. Then I thought maybe I should start collecting.”

“I never doubted my ability, but when you hear all your life you’re inferior, it makes you wonder if the other guys have something you’ve never seen before. If they do, I’m still looking for it.”

“As we get used to women in power, we are likely to discover that they behave much like powerful men – vain, entitled, always looking for more.”

― Hanna Rosin

― Harbhajan Singh

“According to the situation, your role changes in one-day cricket, especially in a phase like the Powerplay. If I bowl four spells, four times I will be playing a different role. If I come in the first Powerplay, and say the opposition are 70 for no loss after 10 overs, I will be looking to take a wicket.”

― Harbhajan Singh

“You have to see if the batsman is coming out, if he is staying back, what his grip is like, to gauge his intentions. A common trend I have observed is, a lot of batsmen change their grips when they are looking to hit: normally they either go high or slide their hand to the bottom of the handle to get maximum power.”

― Harbhajan Singh

“I am honoured to be associated with a brand like Movado. It believes in the art of design and is known for its perfection worldwide. I have strong faith in the pursuit of perfection. I am looking forward to a long association.”

“That’s life’s big joke: we all end up looking like Mr. Burns.”

― Harry Shearer

“One of the problems with ‘SNL’ is that, if you tried to adlib, the director would put you off camera and off the mic, so only you would know that you ever did it. The director always directed to the script; he wasn’t listening to what you were doing. He was calling shots whilst looking at the page.”

― Harry Shearer

“We looked into and tested the Airbnb website and found the inquiries generated were at price points substantially lower than the market is prepared to pay us directly. It was clear that there were no real synergies between the level of our offering and what Airbnb clientele is looking for.”

“I was 16 years old, and I was just flailing around, looking for an interest. I heard, you know, these jazz records. They were modern records, at the time in the ’50s, and I realized that I didn’t fully get what was going on. But I liked a lot of what I heard.”

― Harvey Pekar

“When you’re dealing with a problem as complex as autism, you have to look at it from many different points of view and assemble evidence from many different vantage points.

― Hector Elizondo

“Scientists normally like to do experiments. You know, they like to mix this with that and see what happens. They like to take this thing and poke it and see how it reacts. In astronomy, we can’t do that. The stars, the planets, the galaxies, are so far away that we just look at them, and we have to learn things by looking at them.”

― Heidi Hammel

“When Hubble was launched, it became clear very shortly thereafter that there was a problem with the optics.The mirror was not quite the right shape. And the one program that I had really been looking forward to doing with Hubble was studying outer planets in our solar system, the planets Uranus and Neptune.”

― Heidi Hammel

“Having high quality daycare is by far the most important thing you can do when your kids are little. When I relocated, I spent more time looking for daycare than I did looking for a house.”

― Heidi Hammel

“I was being rejected all the time. Agents would say, ‘I don’t think you’re the type they’re looking for.’ I was always like, ‘You think? I don’t want you to think. I want them to think that.’ This business is all about someone’s opinion, but not the agent or the manager’s. How do they know? They’re not that person.”

― Heidi Klum

― Heidi Murkoff

“I can remember being in my pram: children stayed in their prams much longer then than they do now. A big bouncy pram with black covers and a hood with metal clips that could trap your fingers. I was looking up at my sister who was sitting on the pram seat, with her back to me.”

― Helen Dunmore

“Children will not pretend to be enjoying books, and they will not read books because they have been told that these books are good. They are looking for delight.”

“I’m greedy about cities – I like to form my impressions of them on my own, and on foot as far as possible, looking and listening, having conversations with bridges and streets and riverbanks, conversations I tend not to be aware of until a little later, when I find myself returning to those places to say hello again, even if only in memory.”

“I think that when I’m telling a story, I’m doing the best I can to tell the story as fully as I can, and if there are various fractures that happen in the story, then that’s just the very thing that the story is as opposed to my looking for avenues of difference in one story. They just really do exist. For me, anyway.”

“Foucault is one of many who want a new conception of how power and knowledge interact. But he is not looking for a relation between two givens, ‘power’ and ‘knowledge.’ As always, he is trying to rethink the entire subject matter, and his ‘knowledge’ and ‘power’ are to be something else.”

― Ian Hacking

“Kuhn was the intellectual of whom many scientists said he’s ‘telling it as is it is’ insofar as talking about a process of ‘tinkering’ in terms of theory and experiment followed by radical changes. But often, what Kuhn had in mind were some very spectacular incidents in the history of the sciences that changed our way of looking at the world.”

“Outside the golf course, I feel the pressure, and I feel what everybody else is feeling. But on the golf course, it’s just the golf ball and clubs. And when I have that, it just puts a lot of pressure off of me. It just makes me very calm looking at it, yeah.”

― Inbee Park

“I had no interest in being an actress what so ever, and when I was about 14 or 15, I was signed to a company in England.

― Ira Glass

“There’s no question that consumers are looking for value today.”

“I’ve never seen anything like the way some young people behave. They go out on a date, and they’re sitting opposite each other at a table, and they’re not looking at each other, and they text each other as though they’re deaf-mutes. It’s insane.”

― Iris Apfel

“I absolutely consider fashion a form of art. Of course, there is some fashion that is not art at all – it’s utilitarian, made for the purpose of covering up. And there are a lot of people out there who put a lot of effort into looking awful. But there are also people putting the same amount of energy into making bad art.”

― Iris Apfel

“I’ve realized that my… let me call it ‘destiny’ or some force that has pushed me to identify looking for your comfort zone as a kind of limitation. And everybody has a tendency to fall into the comfort zone. I did that in the early stage of my career.”

― Irrfan Khan

“That’s the kind of consumer society we live in. We’re always looking for the next product that’s going to change your life instead of just going out and changing your life.”

― Irvine Welsh

“Underground people pay a desperate toll finding out things nobody else has discovered yet. We run around like headless chickens looking for the next cultural fix to spiral around in before it gets appropriated somewhere else and becomes something it never was. There’s this sort of one-upmanship in the underground.”

― Irvine Welsh

“At 93, I’m not looking forward to fame and fortune.”

“My room is dominated by the huge painting, which is a copy of ‘The Violation’ by the Belgian surrealist Paul Delvaux.

― J. Michael Straczynski

“He’s always been tough on me, but I’ve had to figure out when he’s being a coach and when he’s being a dad. Once I figured that out, it was much easier.

“When someone sends you an email, they are knocking on your door. And when you open the attachment, without looking through the peephole to see who it is, you just opened the door and let a stranger into your life, where everything you care about is.”

― James Comey

“I saw Boy George looking amazing, absolutely unbelievable, and messaged him asking for the number of his nutritionist. I got in touch with her, and she put me on this diet plan, working out which foods do and don’t suit me. It’s not rocket science – basically, don’t eat cake, don’t eat bread.”

― James Corden

“The Canary Islands offer special incentives to companies looking at potential filming locations, so it was only logical for me to help the local government make connections with major U.S. film studios like Universal, Fox, Sony, Disney, Paramount, Time Warner, 21st Century Fox, CBS, Viacom, Comcast, HBO, Netflix, Warner Brothers etc.”

― James Costos

― James D’arcy

“When I started writing ‘A Million Little Pieces,’ I felt like it was the right story with the style I had been looking for, and I just kept going.”

― James Frey

“I would only have been too pleased if someone had asked me for my data. If you really believed in your data, you wouldn’t mind someone looking at it. You should be able to respond that if you don’t believe me go out and do the measurements yourself.”

― James Lovelock

“If expectations are low, you can only impress people. But if expectations are there for you to be the leading guy, and you’ve been paid X amount of money, you’re on a tightrope, and all of a sudden, you’re looking down.”

― James Marsden

“Yes, we were looking for a Faith spin-off, but then Faith backed down. Eliza got a really wonderful offer over on Fox in a show, and, for reasons I didn’t talk to her about, she decided to go there, and everyone respects that.”

― James Marsters

“Modern man is in crisis. He has degenerated from the redoubtable pillar he became through centuries of refinement and slipped resignedly into the popular depiction of himself as a witless under-achiever, incapable of looking after himself or those around him.”

― James May

“I think any carmaker that had a brain and was looking very long-term would think about ‘Personalised Transport Solutions’ – which may not be a car.”

― James May

“In my experience, people looking for progress aren’t actually looking to move things forward. They’re looking to be perceived in a certain way: as a forward thinker. It’s about vanity rather than any altruistic motives for the art.”

― James Murphy

“When you see a tumour in the brain, it’s an ugly looking thing. It’s kind of black, grisly and messy. Or it can be white. To see it taken away is just amazing.”

― James Rollins

“I think the worst and most insidious procrastination for me is research. I will be looking for some bit of fact or figure to include in the novel, and before I know, I’ve wasted an entire morning delving into that subject matter without a word written.”

― James Rollins

“There is no situation like the open road, and seeing things completely afresh. I’m used to traveling. It’s not a question of meeting or seeing new faces particularly, or hearing new stories, but of looking at life in a different way. It’s the curtain coming up on another act.”

― James Salter

“As technology improves, on-screen avatars look more and more like real people. When they start looking too real, though, we pull away. These almost-humans aren’t quite right; they look creepy, like zombies.”

― James Surowiecki

“Of course, looking tough on inflation is part of any central banker’s job description: if investors believe that inflation is going to get out of control, you end up with higher interest rates and capital flight, and a vicious circle quickly ensues.”

― James Surowiecki

“Looking long term, a stronger, wealthier, and more stable Central America next door benefits the United States’ own safety, security, and economy.”

― James Turrell

“Light knows when you’re looking at it.”

― James Turrell

“There’s traditionally been a large disconnection in contemporary art between the audience and the artist. Generally, audiences are looking towards what they like, and I can tell you, that’s the last thing on an artist’s mind.”

― James Turrell

“I want to create an atmosphere that can be consciously plumbed with seeing… like the wordless thought that comes from looking in a fire.”

― James Turrell

“Usually we are illuminating things instead of looking at the light itself. But I like this quality of the light being the revelation.”

― James Turrell

“I don’t want you looking at the light fixture; I want you looking at where light goes. But more than that, I’m interested in the effect of light upon you and your perceptions.”

― James Turrell

“I remember always looking forward to listening to country music in the car with my mother, and it wasn’t even something I enjoyed in the sense of music, but just being around music itself was enough.”

― James Vincent McMorrow

“I’m such an action movie junkie that as an action fan, because action scenes are so heightened, we could never really picture ourselves in that scene. So when you’re watching an action movie, you experience an action movie more outside of the aquarium: you know you’re out of the aquarium looking in at all the swimming fish that are in there.”

― James Wan

“Before, Indian people had been so defeated, they were always looking for outsiders, for the government, to somehow come in and fix things. But now, they seem to realize that they’re the only ones who can save themselves.”

― James Welch

“In a lot of Indian societies, spirituality has been lost, I think it’s still the best way of looking at the world for Indians – better than any organized religion in this country.”

― James Welch

“Bad acting comes in many bags, various odors. It can be performed by cardboard refugees from an Ed Wood movie, reciting their dialogue off an eye chart, or by hopped-up pros looking to punch a hole through the fourth wall from pure ballistic force of personality, like Joe Pesci in a bad mood. I can respect bad acting that owns its own style.”

― James Wolcott

“I think you always want to be open to things… it’s just the matter of finding something I believe in, finding a character I believe in, and I think that’s the way it should always be. I’m looking for things that excite me.”

― James Woods

“I’m still not aware that I’m good looking.”

― Jamie Dornan

“In looking at Hollywood and its structure, the director controls the medium, and I want to be in control of certain things. I want to be able to get my own ideas and my own feelings out there, and the only way to do that is to be behind the camera.”

― Jamie Foxx

“I remember meeting President Obama and looking at him, thinking, ‘Damn, this dude is really our president. He really went out and did it!’ If you look at stories like that, and other stories that I’m sure you could compare to, it’s just about freeing your mind and taking those guards down.”

― Jamie Foxx

“But don’t get caught out there looking goofy. It’s weird. When you do something that stinks, it’s going to last forever on the Internet. There’s always someone in the audience with a camera phone and if you’re not 100%, you’re going to be watching yourself on YouTube.”

― Jamie Foxx

“I loved all that riot-grrl scene and Nation of Ulysses and Bikini Kill and Huggy Bear. I loved it. It was the moment sort of first growing up where bands had stopped looking like roadies.”

― Jamie Hince

“Modern women are just bombarded. There’s nothing but media telling us we’re all supposed to be great cooks, have great style, be great in bed, be the best mothers, speak seven languages, and be able to understand derivatives. And we don’t really have women we’re modeling after, so we’re all looking for how to do this.”

― Jamila Woods

“I don’t believe any person looking for work is fearful of political judgment. Government is a large institution, and if they believe that people are going to get rid of good employees for political reasons, that’s absurd.”

― Jan Brewer

“Protecting national security amounts to looking for needles in a haystack. The work becomes more difficult if the haystack is larger. Restricting immigration generally, and illegal immigration in particular, limits growth in the haystack, and supports protection of national security.”

― Jan C. Ting

“Jacques Doillon wanted me to be in his film, ‘La Fille Prodigue,’ and there I was, expecting, for some reason, this great bearded man, when a splendid looking red-Indian style man appeared at my door. I said no to his film because I knew that if I said yes, I would run off with him.”

― Jane Birkin

“Any situation where I feel like people are looking at me and I’ve got to speak is the kind of thing I have nightmares about.”

― Jane Fallon

“I like looking at a book and asking myself, ‘How do I replicate that experience I just had as a reader?’”

― Jane Goldman

“We have language and they do not. Chimps communicate by embracing, patting, looking – all these things. And they have lots of sounds. But they cannot sit and discuss. They cannot teach about things that are not present, as far as we know.”

― Jane Goodall

“I was brought up to understand Darwin’s theory of evolution. I spent hours and hours in the Natural History Museum in London looking at the descriptions of how different kinds of animals had evolved, looking at the sequence of fossil bones looking gradually more and more and more and more like the modern fossil.”

― Jane Goodall

“For me, ‘Bookends’ marks the start of my foray into commercial fiction, away from what has always been thought of as more traditional chick lit – single girl in the city trips around in Manolos looking for Mr. Right.”

― Jane Green

“I am not someone who’s very good at looking after herself, and I am also not someone who goes on holiday very often.”

― Jane Green

“Being Stephen’s carer was such a struggle, and it’s a lonely job looking after a disabled person. Thinking back, I honestly wonder how I got through it.”

― Jane Kaczmarek

“I don’t have time to worry about looking cool.”

― Jane Leeves

“I try to dress the bottom I have. The body I have and the bottom I have. I have the intention of looking fabulous every time, and I care about it a great deal. I’m very vain.”

― Jane Lynch

“I’m like Jay Gatsby. I like to throw the party and then stand back, looking gorgeous. Stand back and watch it.”

― Jane Lynch

“Although I’m perceived as very optimistic and upbeat, it comes out of being the opposite of that – feeling isolated or lonely, looking for meaning and the kinds of things that ease that suffering in life, and finding them in large-scale social interaction, like theater and games.”

― Jane McGonigal

“The main reason why historians have skated over the relationship of Victorian PMs with the press is that they haven’t been looking for it. It takes a lecturer in media studies such as Paul Brighton to point out that media management was part of the job of a Victorian prime minister.”

― Jane Ridley

“Now, Spitzer was an anti-crime crusader cracking down on prostitution and Wall Street corruption. So some people were looking to take him down.”

“I am really looking forward to being a role model for girls.”

― Janel Parrish

“Your protagonist is your reader’s portal into the story. The more observant he or she can be, the more vivid will be the world you’re creating. They don’t have to be super-educated, they just have to be mentally active. Keep them looking, thinking, wondering, remembering.”

― Janet Fitch

“I write every day, including weekends. For writers, there are no weekends. It’s just that your family is around, looking mournful, wondering when you’re going to pay attention to them.”

― Janet Fitch

“When you look at the startling ruins of Nuremberg, you are looking at a result of the war. When you look at the prisoners on view in the courthouse, you are looking at 22 of the causes.”

“There’s other things I’d like to do. I probably won’t tour for a very, very long time. It’s something that you feel inside and that’s the way I’ve been looking at everything.”

― Janet Jackson

“We are all part of a larger collective looking to create a more beautiful and just world.”

― Janine Benyus

“I’ve been looking around, and I noticed something: how much you really need to be loved. Ambition isn’t just a desperate quest for positions or money. It’s just love – lots of love.”

― Janis Joplin

“In the business world, if you’re not looking ahead, you’re missing something.”

― Jared Polis

“The interesting thing about advertising is that the things that annoy us sometimes about it are really human. It’s us looking at ourselves – and like all human endeavors it’s imperfect.”

― Jaron Lanier

“Advertisers and marketers should be looking to bring new experiences to different parts of the brain. It’s a more profound idea than just dropping a billboard into a video game.”

“I think the credit crunch is a brilliant thing. We should all stop moaning and start celebrating. When times are tough, it’s an opportunity to start looking at life in a different way.”

― Jarvis Cocker

“We only call at ducks when their rear ends are towards us. If I’m looking at you and you call my name, then I know where the sound came from. But if you had your back to me and I holler and you turn around, you would assume somebody hollered. You want your decoys to represent the sound that you’re making.”

― Jase Robertson

“If one is desperate for love, I suggest looking at one’s friends and family and see if love is all around. If not, get a new set of friends, a new family.”

― Jason Aldean

“I found that looking at the Israeli/Palestinian conflict from an outside vantage point was actually quite distancing. The history of the conflict, the personalities, the violence, the distrust, and the seeming lack of viable solutions made meaningful involvement feel impossible. What changed that, for me, was changing the vantage point.”

― Jason Alexander

“I like to win, I like to compete and I like to sack the quarterback. I imagine there’s a team out there looking for that.”

― Jason Blum

“’Paranormal Activity’ was the first of our independently made/studio-released films. It was also the ultimate low-budget high-concept movie, which is what we are always looking for. ‘Paranormal Activity’ was the genesis of our model, of which I am so proud.”

― Jason Blum

“Just looking when I was little at pictures of cars and houses that I wanted – it gives you a certain motivation, it gives you a goal.”

“The truth is we’re all searching. We’re all looking for guidance, for mentors, and I’m by no means someone to follow.”

― Jason Momoa

“As a listener, we’re looking for that person who kind of excites the molecules within us – who knows how to tell the story that resonates deeply to our core and almost prompts us into action. Fats Waller has been that person for decades. When people need a lift, sometimes they go to him. I know I do.”

― Jason Moran

“Once you step on stage, the people are actually looking to be transformed. That’s why they showed up; that’s why they spent some money. And great performances do that.”

― Jason Moran

“To look for some kind of insight or meaning in pop songs is not really – well there’s plenty of other places where you should probably look first before you start looking for it in a pop song.”

― Jason Newsted

“I’m trying to figure myself out through my movies. Whether it’s big stuff like what we’re doing here, or little stuff like, ‘Why aren’t I happier?’ With every film I feel like I’m apologising for something. I feel I’m most successful when I’m looking for something that embarrasses me about my character that I’d like to expose.”

― Jason Reitman

“Any actor worth his salt is looking for truth, the core of truth of the particular situation he is portraying, of that play. The playwright, the actors and the audience, that’s what we’re all there seeking. When it’s working, time is destroyed. Sometimes ‘Moon,’ a play of four hours, would go by in a snap of the fingers.”

― Jason Robards

“I’m better looking in person.”

― Jason Segel

“I was at the University of Miami, and I still had, like, a semester or so left. And through the film school, I found out that Al Gore was launching a new TV network; they were looking for passionate young storytellers to transform television, which was, like, ambiguous but magnificent-sounding.”

― Jason Silva

“Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand. If you have a healthy lifestyle, your diet and nutrition are set, and you’re working out, you’re going to feel good.”

― Jason Statham

“A lot of actors are frustrated because they want to do things that are different and test themselves. Character actors are always looking for something the opposite of what they did.”

― Jason Statham

“It’s not like I’m dying to do work that’s taken seriously, and I’m not looking to become a thespian. It’s not what I’m looking for; I’m just looking to do quality work.”

― Jason Statham

“When somebody listens and laughs, you’re always in better shape than when you’re with those folks who just kind of look at you when you say something funny. You wonder if they’re looking at you because they’re mad that they didn’t say it or something. It’s hard to handle that.”

― Jason Sudeikis

“My truth – what I believe – is that there are no answers here and, if you are looking for answers, you’d better choose the question carefully.”

― Javier Bardem

“Actors are always looking for the eyes of the other actors because you need help and you need connection.”

― Javier Camara

“Looking back, I do think one of the reasons ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’ has been so successful is not because it deals with serious issues but because I had a unique and interesting way to tell that story. I knew the issues were going to be dealt with in the book, but I felt my job was to write the story as entertainingly as possible.”

― Jay Asher

“Whether we’re looking at the burial box of St. James, a fragment of the True Cross, the Shroud of Turin, or some bones supposedly belonging to John the Baptist, there is always excitement and distrust, faith and doubt.”

― Jay Weatherill

“When I came into the music, I was forced to be a CEO. I was forced to be an entrepreneur; I was forced to… because I was looking for a deal. I didn’t have this grand scheme of starting a record company and then morphing into a clothing empire.”

― Jay-Z

“I was a fashion assistant. I bought the fabric. I made sure that everything was smooth in the workroom. And I scrambled all over London on the Tube looking for buttons. It was great.”

“A trick for looking taller is to wear a top and pants in the same color family – and to hide heels underneath the pants!”

― Jeanne Damas

“Contrary to popular mythology, not all NFL cheerleaders are bimbos or strippers or bored pretty girls looking to get rich. The Ben-Gals offer proof. Neither a bimbo nor a stripper nor a bored pretty girl would survive the rigorous life of a Ben-Gal. The Ben-Gals all have jobs or school or both.”

― Jeanne Marie Laskas

“Aging gracefully is supposed to mean trying not to hide time passing and just looking a wreck. Don’t worry girls, look like a wreck, that’s the way it goes.”

“Special effects are becoming more and more affordable and looking more and more like the real thing.”

― Jed Mercurio

“I’m very much into the costuming of any character that I portray and it’s one of the great things about making movies is it’s a collaborative art form so you get all these artists who are looking specifically about for this instance your character’s costume and what that might tell about your character.”

― Jeff Bridges

“As filmmakers, we’re constantly always looking for something to bring the audience deeper into the reality of the story we’re telling.”

― Jeff Jarrett

“I’ve been managing Internet businesses since 1999. That’s 12 years of being in the tornado, and it’s pretty exhausting. I’ll be looking at the next challenge, but in terms of operating an Internet business, I’ve scratched that itch very well.”

― Jeff Jordan

“Looking back, I realize my favorite stories weren’t in books, they were in comics. On top of being a history enthusiast, my father was also a comics fan, and he kept his stash in the top drawer of his dresser, in easy reach of a kid making a beeline to the bathroom.”

― Jeff Kinney

“My advice to authors would be to try to do something original rather than to try to anticipate what the market is looking for.”

― Jeff Kinney

“I had a briefcase at one point, but it was a kind of 1980s New Wave briefcase. It was made of some kind of cardboard and it had metal hinges. It was kind of faux industrial looking, and I used to carry my books in it rather than a backpack. I didn’t want to have normal student accoutrements.”

― Jenny McCarthy

“I think that when we’re looking at things when we’re right in the center of things, as opposed to being a bit unmoored from what’s going on around us, we see things through a kind of dulling lens of convention, and there’s something about extreme emotional experiences that gives us a heightened clarity, I think, of thought and of feeling.”

― Jenny Offill

“I play with those two eras a lot. The ’70s did actually take quite a lot inspiration from the ’30s. I love the ’70s, the bold color. There’s something very sophisticated about it now, looking back.”

― Jeremy Corbyn

“People ask me what it was like working with Jim Carrey. Well, I never really saw too much of him. I would talk to him on the set, but I was looking at a Grinch facade. It was his voice and all, but… Jim is amazing to watch in front of the camera. I learned a lot from him. He was also always very nice and generous to me.”

― Jeremy Howard

― Jeremy Paxman

“I need to react to a script, to feel strongly about it in some way. And I need it to be a complex character for sure. And also, I think a lot about what kind of audience there is for the film, what they’re looking for and ways to connect with them in the playing of a character.”

― Jeremy Renner

“What I’m looking for is a self-promoting film; a movie which immediately gets people’s imagination is something I can promote – a project which writes its own publicity.”

― Jeremy Thomas

“New video gaming systems are coming out that track every joint of your body. It’s basically going to become a normal thing for us to allow Microsoft to put a three-dimensional camera on top of your television set looking at you, which sounds like a Big Brother scenario if ever I heard one, but, still, it’s what we’re going to allow.”

― Jesse Schell

“When you’re on TV, you’re looking at a half-page of material, trying to memorize it really quickly. By the time it’s on TV, I’ve already forgotten what I said, but I can still recite my whole role from Shakespeare in the Park. It works a different set of muscles.”

― Jessica Hahn

“As soon as you start looking into roles which are specifically Asian, Black, or Latina, you start looking at stereotypes. That’s the issue minority actors face – it’s not that we don’t want to play our ethnicities; it’s that, often, the role that’s written for our ethnicity is a stereotype.”

― Jessica Henwick

“There are so many different kinds of motivation for investing or giving or parting with your money in whatever other way, and plain old financial return is obviously attractive. But people are not always rational and are not just looking for that.”

― Jessica McDonald

“Looking at younger artists, like Varda Caivano and Kerstin Bratsch, I see that their work has something in common that is new to my generation.

― Jhumpa Lahiri

“I feel that Italy’s a country that’s constantly looking out and constantly following what’s happening in other cultural centers. What is being written in America, what is being published in England, what is being published in France. It’s a culture that’s always wanting to absorb and inform itself of other works, other writers, etc., etc.”

― Jhumpa Lahiri

“If we’re looking at the pure development of our game, the challenge is not to have a 200-cap player because that means there is something better that is coming along.”

― Jillian Hervey

“If I’m looking at a client, I can say, ‘Oh, wow, this is where you’re weak; this is what you need to work on.’ I can correct her in a matter of seconds, and then she’s practicing specifically on the thing she needs to work on instead of repeating the same mistakes. Having that feedback is essential for beginners.”

― Jim Carrey

“After 25 years sitting on my own in a room, I was looking for a more companionable job and wanted to work more collaboratively.

“I’m just looking for an angel with a broken wing.”

― Jimmy Page

“You get a chance like that maybe once in your lifetime, and you are lucky to sustain it over that period of time. It doesn’t mean to say that whatever I do in the future has no substance to it – I may present some new material I’ve got, and there are definitely new angles of doing it – but I’m not looking to recreate another Led Zeppelin.”

“I love more than anything looking at a movie scene by scene and seeing the intention behind it. It allows you to really appreciate the hand of the filmmaker.”

― Joe Viterelli

“Whereas ‘Avatar’ and other movies get shocks out of their three-dimensionality, ‘Gatsby’ is going to be about inviting the audience into this larger-than-life drama, letting them almost be inside the room rather than looking at it through the window. I think it will really work.”

“Looking back now, I can see that my dad was a real fighter. A lot of people thought, ‘Why don’t you keep the Jewish stuff quiet?’ They were anti-Semitic Jews. People who were afraid. People who came here and made it and anglicized themselves and didn’t want to associate with their past.”

“Hedwig is on a quest; she’s on a quest as much as Jason and the Argonauts, as much as the boy in ‘A.I.’ She’s looking for something. She’s looking for her other half, and she’s on tour. Monsters, Cyclops – maybe they’re her mom? – appear on various islands.”

― John Cameron Mitchell

“I did take some value out of looking at the extreme simplicity of implementation that the tight resource limits required. I do feel that modern games are often abstracted a lot more than is really necessary, and it leads to robustness issues.”

“There are some good people. But a good chunk of them will lie for no reason at all – it’ll be ten o’clock and they’ll tell you it’s nine. You’re looking at the clock and you can’t even fathom why they’re lying. They just lie because that’s what they do.”

― John Rhys-Davies

“As an ex-stand up, I can tell you that a comedy club isn’t a place you go looking to get the abuse you just can’t seem to find in daily life. The stage is a performer’s domain. You protect that domain. You are not on stage to take what’s given just ’cause you’re getting paid. If you are attacked, you retaliate.”

― John Ridley

― Joseph Gordon-Levitt

“It’s very clear that TPP was promoted by corporate interests, it was driven by ideology, not by economic science. And when they started looking at the net trade benefits, they are miniscule.”

― Joseph Stiglitz

“Jury selection is strictly an emotional process. They’re looking for people they can manipulate. Both sides are.”

― Joseph Wambaugh

“You’ve got people who are looking at DNA evidence and other evidence like that and they’re ignoring it.”

― Joseph Wambaugh

“I personally have no shame in saying I am extremely interested in fashion. I am not as interested in trends. I won’t go on Style.com unless I’m looking for stuff to wear to an event, or there’s a designer I am interested in.”

― Josephine de La Baume

“You have to be okay with wins and losses. You can’t just be looking for the wins and, when the losses happen, you can’t buy more and more because you’re sure it’s going to bounce. We call that revenge trading.”

― Josh Brolin

“The history of horror movies goes back a long way… of people trying to convincingly be terrified when looking at a piece of tape on the side of the camera box. I have a whole new respect for it.”

― Josh Hamilton

“There are some films that really break the mold, and some films that don’t. I’ve been looking for films that break the mold a bit.”

“Looking for equality everywhere is a huge mistake because equals are terrible and boring. But a sense of fairness and justice is a totally different thing and a much more complex thing.”

― Josh Homme

“They’re still working on the script – they’ve got to get that nailed down and they want the first movie to come out obviously, not get too ahead of themselves. But yeah, it’s looking good. I love the second book a lot as well, so kind of diving into that is awesome.”

― Josh Hutcherson

“I am the kind of person that takes everything as is and then look at it from the outside looking in.”

― Josh Schwartz

“I’m very peculiar looking.”

“I don’t write directly on to the computer because I don’t think well facing forward with fingers on a keyboard. I think better looking down holding a pen. And the concentration quotient of pen and paper is higher than when I’m moving words around on screen.”

― Joshua Ferris

“Back when I lived in Brooklyn, I’d sometimes take the Q train all the way out to Coney Island and back, and work on my laptop. There’s something about pushy New Yorkers looking over your shoulder that really makes you produce sentences.”

― Joshua Foer

“Doing a movie about Steve Jobs is just generally a provocative thing to do, whoever does it, and it begs a lot of questioning and skepticism only in that, what is this going to be? What am I going to be looking at? And curiosity as well. I think that’s all positive in any film, because you want people to be curious about it.”

― Joshua Michael Stern

“I went looking for embodiments of pure evil, but found ordinary people.”

― Joshua Oppenheimer

“I think Direct Cinema’s trying to be insightful by looking at reality in a very close way while, in fact, much more is staged than we like to think. In cinema verite, it’s about trying to make something invisible visible – the role of fantasy and imagination in everyday life.”

― Joshua Oppenheimer

“Looking back at it now, it’s almost overwhelming, the amount of work that went into writing ‘Shine’, and to come up with the ideas that we’re doing now.”

― Joshua Ostrander

“Well-being is how I feel in my skin, not about how other people are looking at me and what they see… it’s what I feel like.”

― Josie Loren

“I am an avid SoulCycler, so I feel like I get some credit for that. I just don’t like the idea of people looking at each other while they sweat.”

― Josie Totah

“I know what the audience is looking for and have the ability to deliver that content.”

― Josie Totah

“I always tend to think just left of center, to remove myself from the world by one step. It is very freeing, and it’s a particular way of coming at stories and looking at them that I find the most beautiful stuff that I know comes from, ultimately.”

― Joss Whedon

“I am a member of the Muskogee people. I’m a poet, a musician, a dreamer of sorts, a questioner. Like everyone else, I’m looking for answers of some sort or the other.”

― Joy Harjo

“The fact that many journalists approach the Clintons – especially Hillary Clinton – with a presumption that she has done something that if it’s not outright corrupt is at least worthy of looking into, inevitably colors the way the public views the former secretary of state, and the way they respond to her in the polls.”

― Joy Reid

“I think all art comes out of conflict. When I write I am always looking for the dramatic kernel of an event, the junctures of people’s lives when they go in one direction, not another.”

― Joyce Carol Oates

“I don’t feel I write fast. I write in longhand and do so much revision. On the page, it’s so old-fashioned. I could write a whole novel on scrap paper, scribbles and things. I keep looking at it and something develops. For me, using a word processor would mean staring at a screen for too many hours.”

― Joyce Carol Oates

“I remember looking at James Joyce’s journals. It was just amazing – it looked like ants had written on the page. So much writing on one page, every corner of the page was filled. Some of the lines were underlined in yellow or blue or red. A lot of color, intense writing.”

― Juan Felipe Herrera

“I had a lot of guilt and shame when I was running from God, but nothing like when I was running for God. I was always looking for God’s approval, and that’s where the guilt and shame came out in a big way.”

“Making an effort is polite, and getting ready and looking after yourself makes an event more fun.”

― Jude Law

“It’s always obvious to me when someone is looking at me with an idea of who I am and hoping that that’s the person I’m going to be. No matter how subtle it is, it’s there, and you want to give them who they really want. But it ain’t me.”

― Judith Guest

“You become an expert by working hard. We’ve got fantastic museums, collections and antique shows. You can go and just start looking. That’s the great thing about knowledge. If you collect Doulton figures, you know about the rare ones.”

― Judy Sheindlin

“You can find inspiration when you’re not even looking for it.”

― Judy Woodruff

“I want adventure in my life. I want to do things I haven’t done before. These Hollywood people are so careful of their image and looking right, but there’s a wildness when I come into the photographs. I just want to wade through rivers, climb mountains.”

― Juergen Teller

“For my 50th birthday, my cousin Helmut gave me the most profound, beautiful, and striking present. He made books out of my dad’s slide photographs, which were stored and forgotten. Looking at those books made me cry.”

“And looking at today’s music scene, I think it’s cool that there are a lot of consumers and fans not limited by what radio and the record companies tell them to buy.”

― Juice Newton

“The war broke out, and I wanted to do something to aid my country in a time of crisis. I was too tall for the WACs and WAVES, but eventually joined the OSS and set out into the world looking for adventure.”

― Julia Child

“The thing that I look for in a script – I’m not looking for anything next because you never know where life’s going to take you, so you can’t just expect, ‘I want to do this next.’ So I’m not expecting anything; I’m just hoping.”

― Julia Garner

“I know people are looking at what’s happening in Washington and then they also look at events in Europe, in Greece and Portugal and other places and worry about that.”

― Julia Gillard

“I first felt the addictive power of ‘Game of Thrones’ when I was prime minister, living in a world where power was also pursued relentlessly, albeit far less colourfully. Certainly, the characters of my world were nowhere near as good looking or exotically dressed.”

― Julia Gillard

“I’m not, like, always focused; I’m very unfocused. I’m reading, and then I’m looking at my phone, and then I’m on the Internet.”

― Julia Holter

“If we now find ourselves looking down on the cheap and convenient, it is only because we now have better things which are affordable.”

― Julian Baggini

“Looking out over the port of Dover, with the endless steam of boats coming in and out, every British citizen is reminded that belonging here has never been about blood or genes. It’s simply about being at home on this discrete island and being aware of the privileges and responsibilities that brings.”

― Julian Baggini

“It’s strange, but something about lack of structure needs a structure itself. Otherwise, after a while, it’s like looking at a Rothko painting or a Peter Greenaway film. You think, ‘OK, I want to see something else now.’”

― Julian Barratt

“I remember films I made at university, which are unbelievably pretentious. Poetry that I’d written that I delivered to camera, against a Venetian blind, strong shadows, looking slightly off-camera.”

― Julian Barratt

“Whenever I go to shows, I end up looking at what shoes the guy onstage is wearing and the jacket he’s got on. And when you know everything’s gonna be under scrutiny, it makes you feel more comfortable if you have cool stuff.”

― Julian Casablancas

“I like looking at clothes, and I like going to shows and seeing new, fashion-forward stuff.”

― Julian Edelman

“I’m one of those people who snake through the crowd, keep my head low. I’m not looking for attention.”

― Julian Lennon

“Looking back at those great singers like Gordon MacRae and Howard Keel – they have such a specific kind of style that it seems like we don’t really appreciate anymore.”

― Julian Ovenden

“Traditionally, photography is supposed to capture an event that has passed; but that is not what I’m looking for. Photography brings the past into the present when you look at it.”

― Julian Schnabel

“When you hear a child’s voice, it will have that immediate effect of putting you in mind of looking after children.”

― Julian Treasure

“I’m looking for the truth. The audience doesn’t come to see you, they come to see themselves.”

― Julianne Moore

“I remember so vividly playing a scene with Jimmy Stewart. I was in the back of a covered wagon, and we were doing this little talk in the wilderness. They did his close-up first. I was looking at him and thinking, ‘How does he do that?’ He is not ‘doing’ anything, and yet everything is there.”

― Julie Adams

“Behaving like a princess is work. It’s not just about looking beautiful or wearing a crown. It’s more about how you are inside.”

― Julie Andrews

“Happiness is the absence of suffering. I think it’s an interesting way of looking at it. I think the absence of suffering exists very rarely in the world we live in.”

― Julie Christie

“I think when it comes to women who write or who fancy ourselves ‘hip downtown literati’, there is a certain contempt for being overly sexual or really looking for boyfriends. We tend to be marginalized as some ‘Sex & The City’ Carrie Bradshaw chick-lit dummies who just want shoes and a ring.”

― Julie Klausner

“An actor’s only perception is of their character, and they’re looking at one piece. A writer is looking at the entire story. They’re going to see things that the writer didn’t see because they’re only looking through their lens.”

― Julie Plec

“I want to know why I’m alive. I want to understand. It’s like exploration; it’s like someone being interested in a place and its history, digging into the earth and looking for it, searching – it’s a passion.”

― Juliette Binoche

“Because I’m not perfect looking, I get to play better roles.”

― Juliette Lewis

“I was never looking back in regret. I never thought, Oh, why didn’t I become an actress? or Why did I just go paddling along after John? I’ve always walked along right by his side, and he’s always supported everything I do.”

― June Carter Cash

“I really believe in my hands and my power to knock people out, and I will try to keep looking for that, for knockouts.”

― Junior dos Santos

“You know me: I’m a knockout guy. I’m always looking for the knockout.”

― Junior dos Santos

“In fact, looking at the darkest sides of the United States has only made me appreciate the things that we do right, the things that we do beautifully. We are, for all of our mistakes and all of our crimes, a remarkable place.”

― Junot Diaz

“I do think that we all draw limits and I feel like part of the work of an artist is it shouldn’t be fun. This shouldn’t be comfortable. I’m not looking to make people feel unsafe, but I am looking to make people feel uncomfortable.”

― Junot Diaz

“I’m looking forward to the intensity of football and how the people live football in Liverpool. It’s a special club.”

“Success is like a high-rise building I’m on the first floor. There are a lot of people in the basement or the parking lot but I was lucky enough to have made it to the first floor and I’m looking to make it to the penthouse.”

― Justin Guarini

“I’m always going to be looking for something artistically or whatever. I think that’s part of being driven, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m unhappy.”

― Justin Hartley

“In the press, there’s this desire for the black audience to be this monolithic thing that always responds to the same stars. That’s a really reductive way of looking at the black audience.”

― Justin Simien

“The hardest part about making movies is staying the exact same weight every day and looking the same.”

― Justin Timberlake

“For me personally, I’m anti-gun and always have been and always will be. But I’m definitely not someone who is looking to abolish the Second Amendment. I think we’re definitely interpreting it wrong.”

“If a middle-class family in Shanghai or Guangzhou is looking for a good-quality product, we want them to look at a maple leaf and say, ‘OK, it’s good quality.’”

― Justin Trudeau

“We require Canadians who are collecting EI benefits to prove they are looking for work. It’s only fair that we require employers looking to benefit from the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to prove they really need it.”

― Justin Trudeau

“I think people are looking at Canada and realizing we’re a place that is building for the long term and where the world’s going to be.”

― Justin Trudeau

― Justin Trudeau

“There’s something different about looking someone in the eyes and doing something dishonest to doing it over the phone or screen.”

― Justin Welby

“I’ve noticed that women who pursue recognition rather than attention have a different relationship with aging. They’re not dropping tens of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery. When they have to choose between looking older – or looking odd – they’ll go with older.”

― Justine Musk

“I’m not looking for a boyfriend – but if I was, he’d have to be prepared to carry me around everywhere.”

“That penetrating gaze, that intelligence; it’s hard not to be anthropomorphic when you’re looking at a great ape – at any primate – but especially with gorillas. They’re just so magnificent.”

― K. A. Applegate

“The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what’s happening up there.”

― K. D. Lang

“I studied mass media and brand management and was looking to do an MBA. When an acting offer came by, I thought I’ll do one film so that it would look good on my CV. Films happened one after another, in different industries. I’m so glad things turned out the way they did.”

― Kajal Aggarwal

“I think that’s what the most fascinating part of getting to know someone is – to see how they do things, and how their way of doing things is different from your way of doing things, and the fun of trying to do it their way and to see what value there is in looking at things from their perspective.”

― Kali Hawk

“California feels like Colombia but with less threats. I don’t have to be constantly looking over my shoulder.”

― Kali Uchis

“Colombian culture has had a huge influence on me and taught me a different way of looking at things – I was always different from the people I went to school with, and I learned to embrace that.”

― Kali Uchis

“We are not exercising our democratic rights properly. We need to stop looking for solutions in others.”

― Kamal Haasan

“So many people trip in front of them because they’re looking over there or up ahead.”

― Kamala Harris

“I was standing on a ladder outside the Homestead juvenile immigrant detention center outside Miami, looking over the fence, and I saw children lined up like prisoners. They had been separated from their families and put in this private detention facility. It was horrible.”

― Kamala Harris

“You don’t ever want an African father to come to your school looking for you.”

― Kamaru Usman

“There’s a whole stereotype of the jazz musician that’s into poetry and reading and metaphysics and all that stuff. Really, it’s a sign of someone who’s searching, whose mind is open, looking for answers. Whatever ideas you may come up with, the beautiful thing is the search.”

― Kamasi Washington

“It feels awesome to be a Guinness World Records title holder and to be the first artist to achieve this with Billboard. I remember being in elementary and middle school and looking at the books for all of the records, and I can’t believe my name gets to be in there now.”

― Kane Brown

“WWE was looking for an opponent for The Undertaker. They needed someone for an upcoming pay-per-view. I was supposed to be just one and done.”

― Kapil Sibal

“With giant sites like Facebook and MySpace becoming as generic as Yahoo and AOL of old, more and more sites will be looking for an edge by drilling down deeply to serve a highly targeted audience.”

― Kara Swisher

“Because I was the only child, I was completely indulged. My father thought I was the best looking boy. And even though I was at 100 kgs., he dismissed it as puppy fat. He thought that the sun came out of my head. If I got five out of ten marks, he thought I was half there and had only half way more to go.”

― Karan Johar

“It’s unarguable that the right shoes can really add elegance to an outfit and to the person who’s wearing them. Take a pair of high heels, for instance. Suddenly, you’re looking taller, shoulders back, body curved.”

― Kareena Kapoor Khan

“While looking ahead, we know challenges remain, but we are encouraged by the strategies we have in place to improve our operational efficiencies and performance.”

― Karen Katz

“I’ve come to realize I’m more spiritual than I am religious. What I mean by this: As far as praying to God goes, I’m more about looking inside for inner guidance – tapping into our own abundantly powerful inner resources – which, I suppose, is where some might say God does indeed reside.”

― Karen Salmansohn

“’Choli Ke Peeche’ and ‘Ek Doh Teen’ were my favourite numbers as a kid. I was a huge fan of Madhuri Dixit and would spend hours looking into the mirror and aping her expressions, believing that the mirror was the camera!”

― Karishma Tanna

“Today what is more important for me is performance. At the risk of sounding immodest, I have done it all – 61 movies over 12 years. But now I am looking for quality. It’s easy to be a star. Now I want to be an actress.”

― Karisma Kapoor

“When you have the chance to go against a brother of yours on the court, you’re always looking at each other like, If you score, we’re looking at each other. If I score, I’m looking at him.”

― Karl-Anthony Towns

“When you’re talking to legends, they’ve already went through this process of playing in the NBA and also living after their career is over. Being able to hear their stories, how they’ve had success and others have had success to get an idea of what we should be looking to do and know what we need to do is just really helpful.”

― Karl-Anthony Towns

“It is always the case that when the Christian looks back, he is looking at the forgiveness of sins.”

“The historian is a prophet looking backward.”

― Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

“When you relate to a person and are being friendly, it’s easy to do a scene without looking uncomfortable.”

― Karthi

“Always keep absorbing art and looking at paintings and reading books and watching movies in other languages, just getting to know the world at hand and the world of the past. It’s important to keep absorbing the world and keep engaging with it, and often that means not thinking about movies and thinking about other things.”

― Karyn Kusama

“The people in the decision-making positions need to be thinking differently about who to hire, and looking more unsparingly at their choices. Why give this person a break over that person? Why give this person a second chance over that person? I do think that’s where gender comes into play.”

― Karyn Kusama

“For me, ‘Atmosphere’ was more about looking inwards and reaching out to people close to me. To emphasize the fact that I’m singing on the first single, this album is really more about me and songs that I’ve written instead of collaborating with people.”

― Kaskade

“If I want to do a smoky eye, I tend to focus more on the eyeshadow versus the eyeliner to avoid looking like a Duran Duran album cover. And if I do a smoky eye, I’ll probably do a nude lipstick. I tend to fluctuate between reds and nudes.”

― Kat Von D

“I didn’t go looking to marry an American, it just kinda happened like that.”

― Kate Beckinsale

“The male muse is an unaccountably rare thing in art. Where does that leave female artists looking for inspiration?”

― Kate Christensen

― Kate Winslet

“To be shapely when you’re in the seventh grade is not exactly what everyone’s looking for, or they weren’t then, as someone was telling me the other day. now, that’s like a really great thing to do, to be, but then it wasn’t.”

― Katey Sagal

“The audience may not have felt it was right, and the author may have felt a little upset, but every part I’ve played I’ve twisted around in my mind until I’ve made it into something of my own. Looking back over it, I didn’t deliberately sit down and plan like that, but it does read like it.”

― Katherine Dunn

“Well, you know, what’s so exciting, is that it was a really telling campaign as well. Whenever we start looking at the differences, they could never be more clear.”

“I always assume I look better than I actually do. I’ll feel pretty good about myself when I leave the house, then I’ll see a picture and think, ‘Crap, I had no idea that’s what I was looking like.’”

― Katherine Heigl

“I found what I was looking for at Langley. This was what a research mathematician did. I went to work every day for 33 years happy. Never did I get up and say I don’t want to go to work.”

― Katherine Johnson

“I’m really looking forward to filming in Glasgow with a top-class cast and crew.”

― Katherine Kelly

“When I first met Robert Patrick, I died – he is so scary looking – he is a scary looking man.”

― Katherine LaNasa

“Looking back, I imagine I was always writing. Twaddle it was too. But better far write twaddle or anything, anything, than nothing at all.”

― Katherine Mansfield

“I guess whatever the director’s energy is is kind of contagious on set, because, um, you know, it’s a hierarchy, and we’re all kind of looking to the director for guidance.”

― Katherine Waterston

“I’ve always enjoyed disappearing into a crowd in New York. As an actor, I love to spy, and it’s hard to be a good spy if everyone is looking at you. Also, I’m pretty shy. I don’t really like a lot of attention.”

“There’s nothing more confirming in your life than looking in front of you and seeing some really amazing people who you care a lot about who care a lot about you.”

― Kathleen Hanna

“People have always had these weird things about how you have to be really good looking to be a singer.”

― Kathleen Hanna

“In a world where there is so much sadness and so much to be afraid of, good things do happen to people. Romance is still something we can find even if we’re not consciously looking for it.”

― Kathleen Quinlan

“When I was 16, my dad took me to a DNA conference at the Exploratorium science museum in San Francisco, California, and I was captivated by this way of looking at biology and by the discussions of bits of nucleic acid that could make us sick.”

― Kathleen Rubins

“For long-duration exploration missions, NASA is looking for folks with a lot of operational, hands-on experience, people who have been in field-type situations such as military deployments. In my case, I worked in the Congo and in Biosafety Level 4 labs on smallpox.”

― Kathleen Rubins

“Sequencing DNA on the ISS will enable NASA to see what happens to genetic material in space in real time, rather than looking at a snapshot of DNA before launch and another snapshot of DNA after launch and filling in the blanks.”

― Kathleen Rubins

“I feel like there is something about having a copacetic world POV that helps in making a comedy. Like, David Wain has such a particular way of looking at the world. It helps when everyone can see behind his eyes, you know?”

― Kathryn Hahn

“Looking at the Obamas, they have a lot to manage with their children and having Michelle go out and have everybody comment on what she was wearing, what it means. I think you have to create a pretty large private world to live in.”

― Kathryn Harrison

“Manic depressive people often have incredible energy and a slightly skewed, but nonetheless valid, way of looking at things.”

― Kathryn Lasky

“You won’t be exiled to permanent unemployment just because there’s a picture somewhere of you holding a red Solo cup and looking underage. But, your Google results tell a story: Have you been in the news? Authored articles or blog posts? What types of topics do you frequently tweet about?”

― Kathryn Minshew

“I grew up in Chicago and was a huge fan of ‘The Second City’, so when I moved to L.A., I was looking for anything that resembled that… then I started ‘The Groundlings’, so I went to a show and it was very much like ‘Second City’. I was so impressed that that same night I went backstage and I went up to the funniest person there.”

― Kathy Griffin

“I came to filmmaking as an actor looking for great characters and great opportunities, both of which are kind of hard to come by. It turns out I really love the process. And, it’s exciting to be able to take my career by the reigns and make things happen for myself. Hopefully, in doing so, more opportunities will become available to me.”

― Katie Aselton

“I’m single and looking and failing miserably. I’m keeping my options open.”

― Katie Leung

“I can’t even remember anything before Albee. There is this bursting love you feel, but it’s so intense and so all-consuming. I’ve become one of those psychopath mothers who loves looking at my kid and being with my kid, and then, when he takes a nap, I’m just looking at videos and pictures of him on my phone. I’m obnoxious.”

― Katie Lowes

“Ivanka’s work is never-ending.

“Everything from Washington’s handling of the N.S.A., as well as Apple launching a new iPhone. These events can move billions of dollars in the stock market, and it seems as if the East Coast and West Coast are merging in some respects, so we felt like we needed a little bit more from a content perspective to match what our audience was looking for.”

― Keith Emerson

“We need a very robust way of looking at people coming into the country… We’re focused on the whole concept of the ideology and of the vetting.”

― Kerry James Marshall

“When you grow up looking at Superman, Batman, and all those superheroes, you take it for granted that is what superheroes are supposed to be. So then, when I see art books at the library, and I’m seeing Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo and Rembrandt, I think that’s what artists look like.”

― Kerry James Marshall

“My mom didn’t believe in putting chemicals in hair. But when I got to college, we didn’t have A/C in our dorms freshman year.

― Kevin Brownlow

“People are looking a lot at statistics and all these things, but in the end, I don’t really care. If we can win more games than last year where I score less, I will be really happy. And maybe if we can win a few titles, that’s the bonus.”

― Kevin De Bruyne

“I started looking all over for vineyard sites. I studied the conditions that make the best pinots. In the New World, you have to find the great pieces of land. Cool climate counts, but distinctive soil matters more than anything.”

― Kevin Harvey

“I think that one of the things that we have to recognize is that the longer somebody doesn’t have a job, the harder it is to get a new job. You know, the reality is that if you’re out of job, and you’re looking for a job, then the new employer’s going to say, ‘Well, why, you know, don’t you have a job now? What’s wrong with you?’”

― Kevin Hassett

― Kevin Macdonald

“Put someone on a horse looking cold and wet, and they don’t have to act. They just are cold and wet.”

“I actually think looking to the past for inspiration is pretty redundant.”

― Kevin Parker

― Kevin Young

“I write about what hoaxers do, but I also want us to think about what believers do. Why do we want to believe a story like James Frey’s ‘A Million Little Pieces?’ Why did we want to believe that Lance Armstrong really did all these things that, looking back, seemed impossible?”

― Kevin Young

“I definitely learned to appreciate there is something about looking good. I think it’s been sort of lost in the last 50 years, this idea of looking very nice and very put together.”

― Kevin Zegers

― Kim Hawthorne

“If you are, as an actor, are just worried about looking pretty and being well liked, then I personally feel you are doing a disservice to your audience, the craft, the creative process, writers, and directors. Your job is to tell a story and to tell the truth, and we can’t always be the most likeable character in every situation.”

― Kim Hawthorne

“My background is in acting, so I enjoy being able to show what I’m looking for. With acting, it’s very immediate when you show someone what you’re looking for, and the feedback is instantaneous as well.”

― Kim Jee-woon

“The record company really pissed me off when they told me to lose weight. I couldn’t be bothered with looking a certain way. So I left the business. I don’t regret it.”

“I’m definitely in a place where I’m looking for different than what I’ve done in the past, just so I can go to work and do something I haven’t done before.”

― Kimberly Elise

“If I was applying for a legal position, I would highlight my experience working for the San Francisco-L.A. DA’s office, and I would mention some of the high-profile cases I did, but if I was looking for another television job, I would gloss over that, and I’d mention the highlight reel of what I did in television.”

― Kimberly Guilfoyle

“I moved from New Zealand to Melbourne when I was 17. I’d planned to go to university to study French, but I was offered a contract to write and record an album that was too good to pass up. Looking back now I think that was pretty young but, at the time, I was ready to have an adventure.”

― Kratika Sengar

“I feel like I’m kind of lazy, but I keep the yard looking good.”

― Kris Kristofferson

“’Sunday Morning Coming Down’ is probably the most directly autobiographical thing I’d written. In those days, I was living in a slum tenement that was torn down afterwards, but it was $25 a month in a condemned building, and ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down’ was more or less looking around me and writing about what I was doing.”

― Kris Kristofferson

“When the oldest batch of millennials really first began voting around the mid-2000s, they leaned a little toward the Democrats, looking a lot like the Gen Xers also did at that time.”

― Kristen Soltis Anderson

“I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, ‘What an actress! What a faker!’”

― KRS-One

“It’s always baffled me why BET looks the way it does. This is Black Entertainment Television. Why are we up there, then, looking like idiots? It’s because black people are marketing black people like that.”

“You can’t look back; you have to keep looking forward.”

― Luke Bracey

“Growing up in Georgia, my dad was a farmer and we worked in agriculture, so we were always looking up at the sky, checking if rain was in the forecast. That always set the tone for the mood in my household, whether we had rain coming in or not – we knew the crops would be good and it was going to be a good week around the Bryan household.”

― Luke Bryan

“Sometimes people are looking for, ‘What’s the next Tesla car? What’s this really cool, super-specific thing that people are going to want?’ But I try to be just like a Ford truck. They sell a lot more Ford trucks than they do Tesla cars.”

― Luke Perry

“I’m lucky: I always wanted to be an actor. But I never felt the need to be in with the crowd. I didn’t mind being on the outside. I was always looking forward or upwards, not in.”

“I teach at Columbia, and I’m always looking for books I can lose myself in during the 45 minutes I’m on the train.”

― Lynn Nottage

“If you’re looking at the people who head the institutions, there are very few African Americans or people of colour. I’m talking about the major theatres that position themselves as serving all audiences. What you find is, by and large, people who are shaping what we see, and the people who are the tastemakers are white.”

― Lynn Nottage

“But I’m looking at life, and I’m putting nothing off.”

― Lynn Redgrave

“By the time I hit college, my secret shame was the reason I was an actor was my own words sort of dried up. I stopped writing. I stopped being able to form my own vision. That’s actually what my first feature is about – looking back at two different selves.”

― Lynn Shelton

“Very often we see coaches who have not been successful being recycled, instead of looking to a new face or a new name who has demonstrated the ability to handle the job.”

― Lynn Swann

“The first test any poem must pass is no longer, ‘Is it true to nature?’ but a criterion looking in a different direction: namely, ‘Is it sincere? Is it genuine?’”

― M. H. Abrams

“When I do a workshop, there is always at least one author who comes up afterward and asks if I’ll take a look at his or her book and consider blurbing it. For some reason, I can turn someone down in e-mail, but when he or she is looking me in the eye, I cave.”

― M. J. Rose

“I found being a teenager quite difficult, actually. I put a lot of pressure on myself, and now, looking back at it, I really wish that I had relaxed and just enjoyed it more.”

― Mabel

“I flood the Internet with what I think is quality content. That’s why I did things like giving out a song every 100,000 Twitter followers because I am just looking for ways to get my fans to hear all this music without over saturating things.”

― Mac Miller

“I’m gonna make music, and I’m gonna capture every aspect of being a human being. That’s really all I’m trying to do. I think that artists and pop culture identities are used to simplify what it means to be a human and pigeon-hole people into looking up to one role model.”

― Mac Miller

“The challenge we have in the war on terrorism is looking around for those pieces that matter and trying to fit them together.”

― Madchen Amick

“We have more to offer than just looking good.”

― Maddie Marlow

“’Conservative’ is a term that resonates differently with people. For us, Tae and I take that as being modest. The easiest way to put it is, if there’s a little girl in the audience, and she’s looking at us, I want her parents to feel comfortable with her admiring us and looking up to us.”

― Maddie Marlow

“I don’t like looking like a crazy person in my seat with a mask on, so I go into the airplane bathroom, put it on for a minute, and then I’ll wash it off. Once I’m out of the bathroom, nobody even knows I did the mask, but my skin does!”

― Madelaine Petsch

“I pick my actors primarily based on my gut-feel. They could be rank newcomers or established stars, but if I feel they’ll do justice to my characters, they are on. I think Bollywood is now looking towards Kollywood for new faces, and, to my mind, Suriya will be a very successful crossover star because he’s very versatile.”

― Maeve Binchy

“People get surprised by my choices. But that comes from me looking for something new.”

― Maggie Cheung

“The fact that a New Hampshire legislator’s position is not seen as a career or a way of supporting a family has meant that it draws women. At times, I think men who might be looking for a paid career have known that they couldn’t make one out of serving in the legislature. So there’s a little more space for women.”

― Maggie Hassan

“I listened to birds and crickets, looking for the ways that rhythm appears most naturally in the world. I listened to the Smithsonian’s field recordings of pygmy choirs from Africa.”

“’Your Name’ is a film created with the innate imaginations of a Japanese team and put together in a domestic medium. When such a work is imbued with Hollywood filmmaking, we may see new possibilities that we had been completely unaware of – I am looking forward to the live-action film with excited anticipation.”

― Makoto Shinkai

“There’s something very surreal about driving a truck, looking in the rearview mirror, and seeing 20 cop cars behind you. Even though you know, ‘We’re just shooting. This is just a scene; we’re making a movie here,’ it’s very unsettling.”

― Malcolm-Jamal Warner

― Manny MUA

“I am a known actor who wants to challenge himself in difficult roles. I am not a star but an actor, so I am always looking for strong scripts and strong roles.”

― Manoj Bajpayee

“I am not a star. My face is not the kind that 50,000 people will faint just looking at it.”

― Manoj Bajpayee

― Mara Wilson

“I could be the best looking guy in the Duma, but that’s only because all the other guys are over 60.”

“Jobs are critically important, but looking at economic change through the impact on jobs has always been a difficult way to think about economic progress.”

― Marc Andreessen

“In direct navigation, users type exactly what they are looking for in the browser’s web address field. This could be the exact domain name or web address. Millions of people do this, emphasizing the need for on- and off-line marketing and branding.”

― Marc Ostrofsky

― Marco Arment

“I like the scene in the first ‘Scream’ movie where Sidney gets up, and dusk is falling, and she’s looking out at the hills of Santa Rosa, there where it was filmed, and that’s where you sort of hear her theme being played out. I always liked that moment because, to me, it became more than just a horror movie.”

― Marco Beltrami

“If someone knows of a job creator anywhere in the world that’s looking for a high, complex tax environment or looking for a high regulatory environment, I would like to meet them because I have yet to meet a job creator that’s looking for that, and that’s what we have.”

“The best way to find out whether you’re on the right path? Stop looking at the path.”

― Marcus Buckingham

“A note of caution: We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy. Because we are all unique, what makes another happy may do the opposite for you. That’s why advice is nice but often disappointing when heeded.”

― Marcus Buckingham

“Artists realise that mathematicians have a way of looking at the world that can make them see things differently.”

― Margo Georgiadis

“Self-examination – when the whole world around you is pressuring that and challenging you – is very, very hard. Looking at a whole structure – in my case, let us say of snobbery, basking in certain privileges, marks of what appear to be superiority – that’s ugly to look at.”

― Marilyn Monroe

“You know how you feel somebody looking at you, and you turn, and somebody actually is? It’s the same at an art gallery. You’re looking at one portrait, turn around, and there is a work of art directly behind you. Because it’s all energy. Every single thing has energy.”

― Marina Abramovic

“Today, our attention is less than the television advertisement. We’re looking at six or seven problems constantly. We’re living in the disturbed societies of cities. I think modern technology is one of the worst things human beings have invented.”

― Marina Abramovic

“I avoid looking in the mirror.”

― Marina Warner

“France, land of human rights and freedoms, was attacked on its own soil by a totalitarian ideology: Islamic fundamentalism. It is only by refusing to be in denial, by looking the enemy in the eye, that one can avoid conflating issues.”

― Marine Le Pen

“I always wanted to play for AC Milan or Real Madrid. Real Madrid, of course, because when I was young, the players that played there were the top players. I was looking at Real Madrid as the best of the best. And AC Milan, they also had good players when I was young, so I looked at AC Milan the same way as Real Madrid.”

― Mario Balotelli

“We need to figure out a ‘harvest system’ to collect the produce that stores don’t put out for customers to buy because it’s not perfect looking. Frankly, the stuff left to rot in the storeroom is more beautiful to me than the perfect carrot. I’m a gnarly carrot kind of guy.”

― Mario Batali

“I was at a party, and some squiggly looking dude with a bow tie came up and said, ‘How’d you like to be on TV?’ Turns out he was the programming guy at the Food Network. They had me come into the office, and I did a ‘Ready, Set, Cook’ with Emeril Lagasse, I believe.”

― Mario Batali

“Cookbooks have all become baroque and very predictable. I’m looking for something different. A lot of chefs’ cookbooks are food as it’s done in the restaurants, but they are dumbed down, and I hate it when they dumb them down.”

― Mario Batali

“Looking back, it wasn’t easy when the news broke that I was leaving Dortmund, but that’s behind me now.”

― Mario Gotze

“At one moment, I thought that if I didn’t do a picture in a certain way, then it wasn’t a ‘Mario Testino Picture.’ And I’ve realized that Mario Testino is everything, Mario Testino is whatever he feels like being, because it always ends up looking like me, whatever I do.”

“I really like even numbers, and I like heavily divisible numbers. Twelve is my lucky number – I just love how divisible it is. I don’t like odd numbers, and I really don’t like primes. When I turned 37, I put on a strong face, but I was not looking forward to 37. But 37 turned out to be a pretty amazing year.”

― Marissa Mayer

“As creators and as readers, we need to always be pushing it – by looking for the books, looking for the artists and people and stories to support what we feel to be a better representation of all women. Of real women.”

“’Ugly Betty’ has opened my eyes to the world of fashion journalism – I’m looking forward to going to college for that. Until then, I don’t know. Will I appear on ‘Glee?’”

― Mark Indelicato

“It’s the only way that Democrats can win in Illinois, is to say, ‘Oh, Kirk has health problems, he’s going to retire.’ For Democrats looking at a minority life and seeing that they cannot win in Illinois is so frustrating that they will just assume away any issue. They’ll just say to willing reporters, ‘I think Kirk is going to retire.’”

“I’m really drawn to West Coast composers and I think it has a little something to do with looking across the Pacific instead of looking across the Atlantic.”

Yes, I’m still gonna do things.”

― Mary J. Blige

“I’ve just been growing right along. It’s painful, but it’s a great pain, and I like suffering for great results. It’s like going to the gym. It hurts really bad at first, but after a couple of months and after that diet, you’re looking so hot.”

“Every crazy fad from the 1800s comes back or they never go away. It’s like fashion, like everything’s already been invented, and somebody stumbles onto it and people will always, always be looking for an answer for some vague illness they can’t get a diagnosis for.”

― Mary Tyler Moore

“Reruns are wonderful because it usually indicates that they had something going for them to begin with and that’s why you’re still looking at them. And in both my shows, The Dick Van Dyke Show and the last one, they were so well written and so good they hold up.”

“And the sculptor woman was so clever in the way she did it. She had the beret just about to leave my hand. So it’s attached to this finger and that’s what will keep it there. And I’m looking up at it, so there’s no question but that that beret is going to fly.”

― Mary Tyler Moore

“I’ve had problems with my eyes, and my legs hurt if I walk a great deal. That’s due to very bad circulation. It’s called claudication, and it’s painful. So I have to stop if I’m walking, and pretending I’m looking in the window, so that I can rest them a little bit and then start off again.”

― Mary Tyler Moore

“When I’m meditating on an idea, I try to let the idea completely saturate me to the point where I feel like I’m covering myself in it or totally immersing myself in it, so that everywhere I’m looking, everywhere I’m going, it’s through the lens of that idea. And that’s sort of what I do with the music – I try to lose myself in it.”

― Matt Taibbi

“I wanted to write a book about poverty that wasn’t only about the poor. I was looking for some sort of narrative device, a phenomenon that would allow me to draw in a lot of different players. I was like, ‘Shoot, eviction does that.’”

― Matthew Desmond

“Poverty is a relationship that involves a lot of folks, rich and poor alike. I was looking for something that brought a lot of different people in a room. Eviction does that, embroils landlords and tenants, lawyers and social workers.”

“I think it’s natural for people to see a band and imagine themselves as part of that. That’s what I grew up fantasizing about, looking at posters of bands on my wall. There is an allure to a band.”

“I’m just looking for touching characters.”

― Matthias Schoenaerts

“We as humans are so imperfect. We are always looking for something more and always going astray from Jesus. Whether you believe in him or not, but he is always there with open arms. God never abandons you. He is always waiting for you to come back and when you do, you won’t be scolded – you will be embraced.”

“Mental illness, unfortunately, is an invisible disease: it’s not seen or heard. For whatever reason, because of that, society has decided that if we can’t see it, maybe it doesn’t exist, so they want to just sweep it under the carpet or say, ‘Snap out of it,’ or that you’re looking for attention.”

“The first time I performed at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, I was in the back of the room doing vocal exercises. ‘Me-me-me, my-my-my, mo-mo-mo.’ And I’m looking around, and no one else is doing it. I’m like, ‘They must have done it before they came to the club.’ I came to realize that I was an idiot.”

― Maz Jobrani

“The first time I flew after September 11, I honestly was a little paranoid. As I was going to the metal detector, I was looking at my duffel bag, and I’m like, ‘Do I have anything that’s like a weapon?’ I was really paranoid they were gonna find something sharp, and I was gonna get in trouble.”

― Maz Jobrani

“Films don’t hold the answers I’m looking for… Would you not be so much more interested in finding out that Bigfoot existed than in watching a really good movie?”

― Megan Fox

“I do wish, when I was younger, that I knew that I was gay. It would have made things a lot clearer for me. Really. Looking back on it, it was so obvious, but it never really dawned on me. Socially, I felt like I didn’t know how to be and who to be. If I had known back then, it would have given me more self-confidence.”

― Megan Rapinoe

― Melissa Benoist

“I avoid listening to too many people’s comments about my script. I have learned to take in what is of use. It’s too frustrating looking at somebody’s notes who didn’t get what you were doing. If somebody says, ‘This stinks, and here are all the reasons,’ that’s not going to help you.”

It didn’t matter if I knew how to do that, I just did it because my creative heart felt pulled to it. That seems to have worked out.”

― Merle Dandridge

― Michael Haneke

“Even when I do roles that are really profoundly abusive, like, I would say, in ‘Deadwood’ – there’s a guy who’s a breeding ground for ignorance and hurtful behavior – the fact that people are so taken aback by that is a good thing because they’re looking at themselves, and there’s a part of me in there, too.”

― Michael J. Massimino

“The thing I remember most about space is the view from the spacewalk. When I was inside the space shuttle and looking through the window, you can see the earth and the stars, and it’s very beautiful, but it’s like looking at an aquarium, sort of. When you go outside and spacewalk, you become a scuba diver.”

― Michael J. Massimino

“It strikes me that people want to be engaged, and that those who go into a bookstore in a time of crisis are much more likely to be looking for explanation than for escapism.”

“Hopefully my books are improving. One of the ways I find motivation to improve is looking at someone who is already at a high level and continues to get better with each book. That’s really what you want to emulate.”

― Michael Koryta

“The creative act is also in a small way a suffering act – we start out with our ego, this hope of making this thing whatever it be, but so often it eludes us and it collapses and we kind of regress into this mental suffering, we can’t find what we’re looking for.”

“Three years ago, this week, a newly elected President Obama faced the American people and he said, look, if I can’t turn this economy around in three years, I’ll be looking at a one-term proposition, and we’re here to collect!
