“In 1994, nobody could have predicted ‘Shawshank’ would one day be an iconic movie – and believe me, that would never have happened if Danny Glover had been Red instead of Morgan Freeman.”

“Of course my uncle was a giant, but my dad, in particular, had the house filled with these great Dixieland jazz stars, really the best of them: Henry Red Allen, Willie ‘The Lion’ Smith, Buster Bailey, Cutty Cutshall, Tyree Glenn, Zutty Singleton. These are all big names in the Dixieland world.”

― Billy Crystal

“I wouldn’t be caught dead in red.”

― Billy Porter

“On Christmas Eve, we have a duck or roast pork with caramelised potatoes, braised red cabbage and gravy. For dessert, we have ris a l’amande, a rice pudding, and whoever gets the whole almond in it wins an extra present. Then we dance around the tree and sing carols.”

― Birgitte Hjort Sorensen

“The soldiers did go away and their towns were torn down; and in the Moon of Falling Leaves (November), they made a treaty with Red Cloud that said our country would be ours as long as grass should grow and water flow.”

― Black Elk

“So I took the bright red stick and at the center of the nation’s hoop I thrust it in the earth.”

― Blake Shelton

“I remember telling the head of Warner Brothers that if they’d just make a video for ‘Ol’ Red’… and if it didn’t work, they could drop me from the label.”

― Blake Shelton

“Democrats in 2020 can’t just drive by red counties. You have to stop, get out of your car, ask for people’s votes, and engage with them on issues that relate to their lives.”

― Bob Casey, Jr.

― Bob Dole

― Bobby Jindal

“For years I used to try to straighten my hair, but I’ve reached a stage where I think, ‘I’ve got red curly hair, and it’s actually really great.’”

― Bonnie Langford

“When lorry drivers come up behind me and I’m cycling, innocently keeping to my side of the road, and they decide because they are so big, and their lorry is so powerful, and they just want to clear me out of the road, and they hoot aggressively, then I do see red a bit. I do.”

― Boris Johnson

“Being on the red carpet is both fun and a little nerve wracking, but more fun.”

― Brad Goreski

“I am preppy, geek-chic with a touch of Bozo the Clown with a touch of ‘Showgirls.’ Sometimes, I look at myself and think I should put on a red nose, white face and maybe entertain some kids.”

― Brad Goreski

“A scuffed up shoe on the red carpet or at a big premiere is never okay! It can really alter the vibe of a trendy look.”

― Brad Goreski

“Whether you are right in the middle of a glamorous event or watching it from the sidelines, the red carpet Oscar events set the stage to showcase the latest designs and styles for those watching around the world.”

― Brad Goreski

“Some of the ‘worst’ red carpet looks of all time, it turns out, were really just ahead of their time.”

― Brad Goreski

“I love red. Red pants. Red suit. Red coat. Red anything.”

― Brad Goreski

“Someone I would love to do a beautiful and glamorous red carpet moment is Lady Gaga.”

― Brad Goreski

“From the political angle, I’m trying to be apolitical if you will. I mean people say, ‘Are you a red state or blue state?’, I say, ‘I’m purple.’ I think there are great ideas on both sides of the aisle and neither side has cornered the market.”

― Brad Thor

“Washington politicians think that government can make better decisions than you and me. But we know better. We know it’s smaller, less intrusive government that will lead to real economic prosperity. We know it’s business-friendly policies, not more red tape, that will create real growth.”

― Brad Wenstrup

“And so we remained till the red of the dawn began to fall through the snow gloom. I was desolate and afraid, and full of woe and terror. But when that beautiful sun began to climb the horizon life was to me again.”

― Bram Stoker

“I saw the Count lying within the box upon the earth, some of which the rude falling from the cart had scattered over him. He was deathly pale, just like a waxen image, and the red eyes glared with the horrible vindictive look which I knew so well.”

― Bram Stoker

“’A Streetcar Named Desire’ is the play I’ve probably read the most times in my life, and I love the weirdness of all the scene outs but especially the end of the second scene, when Williams brings a tamale vendor on stage to simply say, ‘Red hot!’”

― Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

“Everyone wants to go to the party and the red carpet, but my life is 90% the work.”

― Bret Michaels

“I was in high school in 1953 when the Committee of One Million circulated a petition urging that Red China – one third of the world’s population – be excluded from the United Nations. And I remember I refused to sign it, at 14 or 15 years old.”

― Brian Dennehy

“What I believe is that people have many modes in which they can be. When we live in cities, the one we are in most of the time is the alert mode. The ‘take control of things’ mode, the ‘be careful, watch out’ mode, the ‘speed’ mode – the ‘Red Bull’ mode, actually. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s all part of what we are.”

― Brian Eno

“I learn tons of John Frusciante’s licks from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I’m never going to play like the Chili Peppers, but I might use that if I’ve got a dub beat or reggae thing mixed with a soul thing.”

― Brian Fallon

“As a little kid, not only is my dad Jo-Jo White, but M. L. Carr is involved in the family, Red Auerbach is my godfather, and my stepmother was an Olympic-caliber sprinter. Athletes were all around. I happened to be a natural athlete. If I wasn’t, it might have been hell. But I never got any pressure from my mom and dad to be an athlete.”

― Brian J. White

“When I was in school, I used to look out the window and see the big red double-deck buses driving by. It just looked so free.”

― Brian Johnson

“From Clara Barton’s tireless work founding the American Red Cross to the first female Medal of Honor winner, Dr. Mary Walker, to our first female combat fighter pilot Lt. Kara Hultgreen, no list of American heroes is complete without the names of some of these extraordinary women.”

― Brian Kilmeade

“I bought my wife Leighanne a silver BMW Z8 sports car one Christmas and tied it up with a big red bow in the driveway of our house.”

― Brian Littrell

“My dad had a candy-apple red sparkle drag boat with a giant hemi engine in it that he raced professionally. The sound of that engine was the most incredible sound ever.”

― Brian Reitzell

“I think my least favorite hair color was the hair color that I had in ‘Pitch Perfect 2.’ They really wanted me to be dark red, and I wanted to be lighter like I was in the first movie, but they didn’t want that. But I rocked some light red for a year, after it faded.”

― Brittany Snow

“I would borrow my mom’s red Borghese lipstick and smear it on like a clown!”

“There is definitely a comeback of the idea of dressing well every day. Nowadays, suits can be worn for many occasions – to work or to school, to a dinner party or red carpet event.”

― Brunello Cucinelli

“I read ‘Red Dragon’ back in high school. I love Thomas Harris’ approach to the crime thriller that crossed over into horror in a way that nobody really tapped into.”

― Bryan Fuller

“What makes a comedian has nothing to do with religion. Think of Red Skelton, Jimmy Durante, Jackie Gleason, who were all Catholics.”

― Buddy Hackett

“The initial plan for Rooster Teeth is really different from the initial plan for the group, because we started as a group that was making one show: ‘Red vs. Blue.’”

― Burnie Burns

“Usually, YouTube channels are named after the person that you see on camera… or in the case of ours, it could have been the show, but we didn’t even name the company ‘Red vs. Blue.’ We named it something else to give people the idea that we were going to be doing more than that.”

― Burnie Burns

“’Red vs Blue’ as a show has evolved dramatically. It looks an entirely different show to what we started with, but the format of the show has changed so much over the years, too.”

― Burnie Burns

“For the most part, these awards shows, while they are fun, they’re high-pressure for the people who are nominated and for those walking the red carpet.”

― Busy Philipps

“I went to public high school in Scottsdale, Arizona, and I certainly wore a lot of makeup in high school. I experimented with a cat eye for a semester, and then, you know, a strong red lip because Courtney Love in Hole was all the rage.”

― Busy Philipps

“Just as Mars – a desert planet – gives us insights into global climate change on Earth, the promise awaits for bringing back to life portions of the Red Planet through the application of Earth Science to its similar chemistry, possibly reawakening its life-bearing potential.”

― Buzz Aldrin

“We need to begin thinking about building permanence on the Red Planet, not just have voyagers do some experiments, plant a flag and claim success. Having them go there, repeat this, in my view, is dim-witted. Why not stay there?”

― Buzz Aldrin

“If you have a kid who goes to kindergarten and doesn’t know what a circle is, doesn’t know what red and green are, and doesn’t know what right and left are, by the time he learns those things, the rest of the class is far ahead of him.”

― C. Everett Koop

“I grew up as a child living ‘Red Dawn.’ I was leaping out of spider holes, mowing down Russkies at the age of eight.”

― C. Thomas Howell

“When I’m on the red carpet, most people say, ‘Who the hell is that?’ It’s downright embarrassing.”

― Cameron Dallas

“I think the only time that I worry about looking good is on the red carpet.”

― Camila Alves

“I only use one side of the Physicians Formula Twin Cream Concealer Opens a New Window – the yellower side. It’s great for covering up red spots.”

“I don’t eat red meat anymore.”

“I am not feeling any better because I cannot stay in bed, having constant cause for walking. They say I leave at night by the window of my tower, hanging from a red umbrella with which I set fire to the forest!”

― Camille Claudel

“Someone once told me I looked good in red, so I bought every piece of clothing in red and bright-red lipstick. I had huge hair, as big as I could tease it and spray it.”

― Campbell Brown

“I thought I’d be edgy and dye my hair red. And I dyed my hair, like, Jessica Rabbit red. It kind of allowed me to have this whole new confidence and this whole new swagger and this whole new sense of self. It kind of brought out the inner rock star in me. I had never dyed my hair like that, and no one forgot me after that.”

― Candice Accola

“I love red or deep purple lips for events.”

― Cara Delevingne

“Posing on the red carpet feels like you’re selling something that has nothing to do with you. If you do it with someone else, it’s like we’re saying, ‘Oh! We come as a pair! Would you like to buy both of us? We’re available for weddings and Bar Mitzvahs!’”

― Carey Mulligan

“People do notice me – I’m always so surprised. When I dyed my hair blond for ‘Suburgatory,’ people would still recognize me from ‘The Last Song,’ when I had red hair, and I didn’t even recognize myself.”

― Carly Chaikin

“Candy apple red is my favorite color. It’s a powerful color to wear. It’s always been that way – I’ve always been really attracted to that color.”

― Carly Rae Jepsen

― Carmen Electra

“The red carpet is very important. You have to be very careful to have the right person dressed in right way. For me, it has to be a perfect look.”

― Carolina Herrera

“’Red Planet’ was a tough movie to make, and I learned a lot about myself. To me, that’s a lot more interesting than how a movie does.”

― Carrie-Anne Moss

“I love having my hair and makeup done for red carpets, but to have that done every day would be exhausting.”

― Carrie Underwood

“The TV is often on in our house, but I really only keep up with three shows: ‘American Idol,’ ‘Modern Family’ and ‘The Walking Dead.’ Sometimes I’ll sip red wine – it’s a nice way to slow down and relax.”

― Carrie Underwood

“How, possibly, could the police have made the ‘mistake’ of charging the wrong man with the notorious Red Light Bandit crimes? That also is something that is fully revealed in the Pandora’s Box of facts I have prepared.”

― Caryl Chessman

“Further, a document names and identifies the actual Red Light Bandits (plural), because in fact there are two.”

― Caryl Chessman

“I am a huge Red Sox fan.”

― Cass Sunstein

“Every job I’ve had since ‘Smallville’ has wanted me to have red hair, so I have to thank ‘Smallville’ for that. But, just the fact that it was so different was appealing to me. As an actor, you want to be able to play a lot of different things.”

― Cassidy Freeman

“I think if you’re going to wear a red lip, you don’t want it wearing you, so it’s about finding the right colour.”

― Cate Blanchett

“In writing biography, fact and fiction shouldn’t be mixed. And if they are, the fictional points should be printed in red ink, the facts printed in black ink.”

― Catherine Drinker Bowen

“There’s so many versions of ‘Red Riding Hood.’ It goes back 700 years.”

― Catherine Hardwicke

“I used to go red when anybody spoke to me. It’s awful because you absolutely cannot control it. If you are a child that blushes, or is shy, the one thing you want in the world is to be the child who comes in and says, ‘Hi,’ to everyone and goes up and makes friends.”

― Catherine Tate

“If I hadn’t had a baby, a part of me thinks I might have turned up on the red carpets all the time and gone, ‘Hi, it’s me!’ Maybe other people do it because they haven’t got kids and they’ve nowhere else to be. But because I have, I don’t feel like that.”

― Catherine Tate

“I get terrified the first day I’m on a film set. I get nervous walking down a red carpet. I find making speeches the most terrifying thing in the world.”

― Catherine Zeta-Jones

“I find this wave of super-skinny women scary. I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve got to drag myself down to the gym like everybody else. But I look at the red carpet sometimes and it’s like a pageant.”

― Catherine Zeta-Jones

“Restoring the people’s voice in Congress is not just one part of our Better Way agenda, it’s the most important part. Unless people are back in the driver’s seat, we won’t be able to rebuild our military, roll back the red tape, or help our most vulnerable.”

― Cathy McMorris Rodgers

“When I was 13, my mom said she had a dream that I would win Miss Universe in a red dress.”

“Arizona is gorgeous. The sunshine in Arizona is gorgeous red.”

― Cecilia Bartoli

“I was in Las Vegas when the Nogueira brothers first touched down in America. There was a bus – this is a true story. There was a bus that pulled up to a red light, and Little Nog tried to feed it a carrot while Big Nog was petting it. He thought it was a horse. This really happened.”

― Chael Sonnen

“I bet you my body is three-quarters Red Bull.”

― Charlamagne tha God

“My father, Larry McKelvey, he was the man in Moncks Corner. He ran illegal nightclubs where everyone went, ran around in red leather pants, claimed he partied with Rick James. If you needed anything in Moncks Corner, you saw Larry McKelvey.”

― Charlamagne tha God

“Donors are sick of writing that $200 check to the Red Cross and not knowing whether it goes for the executive director’s salary or the office rent.”

― Charles Best

“In my 40s – when I was giving to the Red Cross, United Jewish Appeal and other charities – I said to myself, this is all well and good, but these are really amorphous things, and maybe there are some causes out there that I really give a damn about.”

― Charles Bronfman

“Americans are willing to cheer on politicians who denounce bureaucratic overreach and job-killing red tape in abstract terms. But they turn out to like specific regulations against toxic chemicals in their drinking water.”

― Charles C. Mann

“Little Red Riding Hood was my first love. I felt that if I could have married Little Red Riding Hood, I should have known perfect bliss.”

― Charles Dickens

“The red man divided mind into two parts, – the spiritual mind and the physical mind.”

― Charles Eastman

“I’m a former Red Sox fan, now fully rehabilitated.”

― Charles Krauthammer

“It is an old liberal theme that conservative ideas, being red in tooth and claw, cannot possibly emerge from any notion of the public good.”

― Charles Krauthammer

“In 1880 at the Military Hospital at Constantine, I discovered, on the edges of the pigmented spherical bodies in the blood of a patient suffering from malaria, filiform elements resembling flagellae which were moving very rapidly, displacing the neighbouring red cells.”

― Charles Louis Alphonse Laveran

“I actually imagined ‘Thunderbolts’ as a straight-up comedy book in a lot of ways, like a very dark comedy book, whereas ‘Red Lanterns’ is more of a cosmic saga that has some jokes every once in a while.”

― Charles Soule

“’Thunderbolts’ I was mostly attracted to because I really wanted to write Punisher and Elektra and Deadpool, who are characters I have always really enjoyed. But the funny thing is that over time, I came to really like Red Leader; he became one of my favorite guys in the book. Sometimes characters surprise you.”

― Charles Soule

“It’s kind of like when you have guests coming over to your house, and you haven’t really picked up in awhile, and you look around and say, ‘Wow, my place is kind of a mess, but I never noticed it because it’s what I’ve been living in every day.’ That’s kind of what Supergirl is to the Red Lanterns.”

― Charles Soule

“The thing about Red Lanterns is that, while they have light powers and they have a power battery, they also have this weird shamanistic kind of blood magic side to them.”

― Charles Soule

“When I was younger, I was quite scared of a red lip. But I started listening to ’60s French ye-ye pop when I was making ‘Sucker.’ I was looking at Brigitte Bardot and those kinds of girls. When they were dressed up, it was often a bold red lip.”

― Charli XCX

“We can get rid of red tape.”

― Charlie Daniels

“I’m not one to experiment with lip colors. I tend to go for either red or a soft pink.”

― Charlotte Casiraghi

“The child now shewed her a narrow and rugged descent, made by cutting the red clay and stones, of which the cliffs are here composed, into a sort of rude steps.”

― Charlotte Smith

“My costumes are the same measurements they were when I was 19, 20 years old. I eat pizza and ice cream, but whenever I gain three or four pounds, that sets off a red alarm.”

― Charo

“I was a vegetarian for 10 years and a pescetarian for eight. Then I woke up one day when I was 29 and craved red meat. I’m a big believer in listening to my body’s cravings.”

― Chelsea Clinton

“When I was in New York, I got to see Joan Rivers do an hour of material, and it blew my mind. I don’t remember how old she was at the time, but she just had this edgy hour that had so much funny stuff in it, and she was so fearless. If you only watch her on the red carpet, you don’t get a sense of what a legendary standup comedian she is.”

― Chelsea Peretti

“When I was young, I liked to be acknowledged in class by little gestures such as a small red star for doing something good. Now that I’m older, I still want to be acknowledged for good work.”

― Chen Guangbiao

“There isn’t anything I don’t eat, although I’m not too keen on creepy crawly things. Other than that, I’m quite adventurous. I like all types of red meat, and I’m not a fussy eater at all.”

― Cherie Lunghi

“The Go Red for Women campaign raises awareness of the risk of heart disease. I think a lot of people don’t realize that heart disease is the number one killer of women. So what we’re doing is encouraging women to tell five other women to learn more about heart disease and how they can prevent it.”

― Cheryl Hines

“My favorite part was when my grandfather and I would make a special trip to Firpo’s Bakery for red and green Christmas cookies and fruitcake studded with the sweetest cherries I’ve ever tasted. Usually Firpo’s was too expensive for our slim budget, but Christmas mornings they gave a discount to any children who came in.”

― Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

“If I’m feeling down in the dumps, or like I need a pop of colour, I’ll put on MAC’s Lipstick in Lady Danger. I discovered red lipstick when I did the Oscar season: Chanel sent me one and I realised how classic and glamorous it can be.”

― Chloe Sevigny

“I give complete respect to any couple that stays together, however they do it, whether they do it by going on red carpets or going hiking together, you know, or keeping themselves really quiet and trying to stay out of all that press stuff.”

― Chris Martin

“Doing something like ‘Damages,’ I played a character with post-traumatic stress. I was playing with sleep deprivation. I was not sleeping; I stayed up for three days at a time, drinking Red Bull. I would get shaky and tired and hyper.”

― Chris Messina

“On red carpets, as people throw questions at you, you try and answer as quickly as possible.”

― Chris Pine

“You can’t have F1 without Ferrari – you just can’t have it. It’s part of the theme that is the red car, and a lot of it is to do with the colour.”

― Chris Rea

“My first year on ‘SNL’, I made $90,000 dollars. And I bought a red Corvette for $45,000 dollars. I’m thinking, ‘I’ve got 45 grand left!’ Taxes didn’t even come into my equation. At the end of the first year of making 90 grand I was 25, 30 in the hole. We live in this baller, spend-money culture.”

― Chris Rock

“There were times I’d be nervous walking home from elementary school, thinking, ‘If that red tag from the power company saying our lights are turned off is on the door handle, I don’t know what I’ll do.’”

― Chrissy Metz

“My beauty tricks revolve around eyes. For the early morning shoots, I pop eye pads in the freezer the night before, and when I take them out in the morning they are already cold and active and are great under my eyes. I keep my eye pads right next to my red velvet Ben & Jerry’s in the freezer.”

― Chrissy Teigen

“If I have a big shoot coming up, I do low-carb, no red meat, and earlier dinners. And I just tell myself that sure, maybe I cannot eat all the things I’d love to today. But there are many more days in the week, and that perfect bite will come when I’m done with whatever shoot.”

― Chrissy Teigen

“Bright reds – scarlet, pillar-box red, crimson or cherry – are very cheerful and youthful. There is certainly a red for everyone.”

― Christian Dior

“The core of my work is dedicated not to pleasing women, but to pleasing men. Men are like bulls. They cannot resist the red sole.”

― Christian Louboutin

“The shiny red color of the soles has no function other than to identify to the public that they are mine. I selected the color because it is engaging, flirtatious, memorable, and the color of passion.”

― Christian Louboutin

“Some people don’t even know my name, but they know I am the man with the red soles.”

― Christian Louboutin

“Even if you don’t like colours, you will end up having something red. For everyone who doesn’t like colour, red is a symbol of a lot of culture. It has a different signification but never a bad one.”

― Christian Louboutin

“My favorite dish is brown rice with lentils, roasted red and yellow peppers, and fennel, with a sweet potato and a salad on the side.”

― Christie Brinkley

“Red lips and fragrance always top off an outfit for me.”

― Christina Aguilera

“I was obsessed with the Canadian novel ‘Anne of Green Gables’. I decided I was Anne of Green Gables. There was something that spoke to me about her, and I wanted to have her beautiful red hair.”

― Christina Hendricks

“It is tricky because I do wear a lot of vintage on the red carpet, and usually when I’m getting ready, I’ll say, ‘We need to make sure that I don’t look like I’m in a Scorsese film today.’ Sometimes I do something a little bit more modern with my hair. You have to mix it up.”

― Christina Hendricks

“I’ve got Christian Louboutin’ s 6 1/4-inch Equestria boots. I wear them so much, I turned the red bottoms brown!”

― Christina Milian

“I used to hate exposure situations. What is generally referred to as ‘red carpet.’”

― Christoph Waltz

“You can’t tell what’s aboard a container ship. We carried every kind of cargo, all of it on view: a police car, penicillin, Johnnie Walker Red, toilets, handguns, lumber, Ping-Pong balls, and IBM data cards.”

― Christopher Buckley

“I met Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I’m not really star struck by actors, but musicians, that’s when I get star struck. Chad Smith is my number one drum influence, so that was a real mind-blow. I spoke to him – proper English, thank God!”

― Christopher Mintz-Plasse

“In my formative years, I never missed the ‘Creature Double Feature’ on Saturday afternoon TV, even if it meant switching back and forth between ‘Gamera’ and the Red Sox. I did a book report on Stephen King’s ‘Night Shift’ in seventh grade. Unrated Italian horror movies became a weekly rite of passage once I hit seventeen.”

― Chuck Hogan

“My dad died from pancreatic cancer at 54… I’m making sure I’m eating my vegetables and staying away from the red meat.”

― Chumlee

“Red’s my favorite color.”

― Chyler Leigh

“I think ‘Red Band Society’ is unique because not only is it focusing on a pediatric ward, but it’s from the view from the patient, not from the view of the doctors. So we’re getting to see a whole other side of hospitals and medical series life that we haven’t been able to see before.”

― Ciara Bravo

“What I really like about ‘Red Band Society’ is how real it is, and the experiences that they are going through are experiences that everyone is bound to go through at one point or another in their lives.”

― Ciara Bravo

“’Big Time Rush’ was a great show, and I had some great experiences. It allowed me to become more of a comedic actress, which is also a great skill to have. But there wasn’t a whole lot of tragedy in there. Not quite as dark as ‘Red Band Society.’ So I’ve been very lucky to have been able to grow in that sense, just through moving to FOX.”

― Ciara Bravo

“I love Chanel. Everything about her was personal. All of those lions she made, she handmade them. Red and green, they were her favorite colors. She kept it personal and real, and she was a woman.”

“The politicians were talking themselves red, white and blue in the face.”

― Clare Boothe Luce

“Politicians talk themselves red, white, and blue in the face.”

― Clare Boothe Luce

“From the smallest misdemeanor up to the biggest crime, everyone is brought before a judge. And that means there’s a huge backlog in the American legal system. There are prosecutors and public defenders and judges who are trying to keep their head above water in the tide of this bureaucracy and red tape.”

― Clare-Hope Ashitey

“Grown-up parties are so dull they make me want to throw a tantrum and hurl red wine on the nearest cream-damask armchair.”

― Claudia Winkleman

“When I decided to become vegetarian, I had to learn how to ‘recook,’ if you will. For example, I used to put red wine in a big pot with the meat that I’d cooked in fat, and it was, of course, delicious. When I gave up meat, I wondered what I would make. That turned out to be vegetables, really organic and fresh.”

― Cloris Leachman

“I am personally saddened and stunned by the tragic events that took place in Red Lake.”

― Collin C. Peterson

“We all share some commonalities with the states we come from and where we come from on the political spectrum. There’s a lot of work to be done to make sure we continue to have strong advocacy for these values that we find in the heartland, in red and rural states.”

― Conner Eldridge

“I drink red wine every night and chamomile tea before bed.”

― Connie Nielsen

“For dinner, I have at least four or five different vegetables of all colors: purple, orange, green and red. I eat as many colors as possible, including carrots, broccolini, asparagus, cauliflower, kale and more.”

― Connie Nielsen

“The Arabs could have peace tomorrow if sufficient numbers of Palestinians were not content to be used as cannon fodder in fruitless assaults on Israel, even as the surrounding Arab powers distract the Arab masses with the red herring of Israel while retarding their countries with their repression and corruption.”

― Conrad Black

“In order for me to get through all the red tape and just allow people to just get at my talent, I’ve got to set the record straight. And you can’t set half the record straight; when you tell it, you’ve got to tell it all.”

― Corey Clark

“From the outside, there’s a lot of glitz. They see you on the red carpet, but they don’t see what it takes to get there.”

― Courtney B. Vance

“Day-to-day, I don’t wear make-up, my hair’s not done, and I’m in ripped jeans and a Bonds tee. But doing red carpets is just part of work.”

― Courtney Eaton

“What’s amazing is that I’m recognized all over the world through ‘Red Dwarf.’ British fans are exceptional, but the American fans are something else. Some of them fly 500 miles to stand in line for three hours, just to meet me, then when they do they collapse. It makes you feel like a rock star!”

― Craig Charles

“There was never any career plan. When ‘Red Dwarf’ started I thought we were doing a curious little sitcom on BBC2, I didn’t think I was becoming an actor. I didn’t see that 21 years later I’d still be talking about it, let alone filming a new one. For me everything’s always been an accident.”

― Craig Charles

“What I dislike about going to the club is if you’re not behind that red rope, you feel you’re missing something special going on.”

― Craig David

“I enjoyed retirement the right way… linguine con vongole, red wine and plenty of truffle cheese.”

― Craig Kilborn

“In Massachusetts, scientists have created the first human clone. The bad thing is that in thirty years, the clone will still be depressed because the Boston Red Sox will still have not won a World Series.”

― Craig Kilborn

“It’s the director’s job to piece together my performance, his interpretation of my takes, each take, and string them together and make a statement. I’m red paint on a canvas for a painter.”

― Cuba Gooding, Jr.

“It wasn’t like it is now. But for the types of teams we had, the fans were very good here. On some Thursday afternoon games, we’d get 25,000 fans. That was remarkable. This has always been a great Red Sox city.”

― Curt Gowdy

“I’m a Republican. I’m a former Red Sox. I have a nasty habit of talking – a lot – about anything anyone asks me and totally unconcerned about giving you my opinion. You will never question where I stand – right or wrong, agree or disagree – on anything.”

― Curt Schilling

“With the Red Sox, you have more of a literary interest in it. You know they’re going to lose; you’re just interested in how the plot is going to unfold.”

― D. B. Sweeney

“I found a red Oscar de la Renta raincoat, and it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”

― Dakota Johnson

“In England we burnt redheads at the stake, because we thought they were witches. There are still young redheads in Britain getting ripped for having red hair. ‘Oy, Ginger!’”

― Damian Lewis

“Writing and directing might be a red herring, and really I’m just re-examining what it is to act, to do it well and do it properly.”

― Damian Lewis

“I have the utmost respect for red carpet interviewers; it is such a hard job.”

― Dan Levy

“I hated working red carpets, I hated the whole celebrity interview process. I just realized I’d rather be the person somebody wanted to ask questions to than the person asking the questions.”

― Dan Levy

“We should develop anti-satellite weapons because we could not have prevailed without them in ‘Red Storm Rising’.”

― Dan Quayle

“A free and truly independent press – fiercely independent when necessary – is the red beating heart of freedom and democracy.”

― Dan Rather

“Whenever we’re on the red carpet, we look like competition winners. It’s a joke.”

― Dan Smith

“Next door to Ethiopia spreading out along the strategic Red Sea coastline is Eritrea, a relatively new country, and a place that few Americans seem to fully understand.”

― Dana Rohrabacher

“Here’s the thing about Red Sox fans, or actually just fans from that region, in general: they appreciate the effort. And if you mail it in or if you give 80 percent, even with a win, they’ll let you know that’s not how you do it. They want – if it’s comedian, if it’s a musician, bring us your best show.”

― Dane Cook

“My goal is people associate November with COPD awareness month as much as they notice October with breast cancer and pink. That’d be a great thing if it happened. The fact that COPD kills more people than breast cancer and diabetes put together should raise some red flags.”

― Danica Patrick

“I grew up in Louisiana. We have red beans and rice, and there’s a Popeye’s on every corner.”

― Daniel Cormier

“When I came into Red Bull, everyone thought, ‘He’s just the happy, nice guy; he’s fast, but he can’t race hard with these top guys.’ That was a reputation I had to dismiss.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“To get the Red Bull junior drive was like a massive pressure off… I didn’t have to go around asking Mum and Dad to sell their house or ask friends for funding. The instant feeling was, ‘Oh wow, amazing.’”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“As far as the outside things goes with Red Bull – I like the brand a lot, and obviously, I like the team a lot. We’ve always been a good fit for each other, so from that side, it’s all been really good.”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“Since I got to F1, and especially since I got to Red Bull Racing, I said, ‘I don’t want to have any regrets. I’ve got a chance now in a top team. I want to leave it all on the table.’”

― Daniel Ricciardo

“Anytime I stepped out on the red carpet in anything pink, I don’t know what I was thinking.”

― Danielle Fishel

“Everyone wants to get behind the red rope, but actually: be yourself, don’t believe what you see, don’t believe all this marketing.”

― Daphne Guinness

“’Deep Red’ (1975) is my favorite movie. The character David Hemmings plays is very much based on my own personality. It was a very strong film, very brutal, and of course the censors were upset. It was cut by almost an hour in some countries.”

― Dario Argento

“I think it’s particularly fun not being a full-time showbiz reporter because you still have the ‘Oh, wow!’ factor when you go out on the red carpet and there are these big stars that are standing there. But if you’re doing this day in and day out, it becomes a little blase.”

― Daryn Kagan

“When I’m with the wife, and we’re having a romantic night, I occasionally think about a glass of red wine, but I’ll order a sparkling water. I’d like the wine, but it wouldn’t end with one glass, so I don’t even go there.”

― Dave Gahan

“We always talk about how the first several seasons were faithful to the books, and anybody who wanted to could go onto Wikipedia and learn Ned Stark gets beheaded or about The Red Wedding, and most people don’t want to know – because why ruin a story?”

― David Benioff

“Red hair stigmatizes you.”

― David Caruso

“I’ve said in the primary race repeatedly that a Labour Party that I lead would be a true red Labour Party, be very clear about its social democratic roots and its social democratic agenda.”

― David Cunliffe

“Personally, I like to juice up several different kinds of fruit and vegetables – which may include various combinations of bananas, red bell peppers, apples, carrots, celery, broccoli, spinach, parsley, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.”

― David H. Murdock

“On the red carpet, one tip is to suck in your cheekbones – apparently it looks better on camera. I don’t know, though; I think a nice smile is best.”

― David Harewood

“I knew I was Chinese, but growing up, it never occurred to me that that had any particular implication or that it should differentiate me in any way. I thought it was a minor detail, like having red hair.”

― David Henry Hwang

“Buffalo meat tastes just as delicious as red meat, but it comes much leaner. Because of its leanness, it also cooks more quickly.”

― David Kirsch

“I had no idea this thing was televised. Boy, is my face red.”

― David Letterman

“I discovered that if one looks a little closer at this beautiful world, there are always red ants underneath.”

― David Lynch

“I don’t paint the town red. But when I do go out, people always want to touch my hair. It happens every time.”

― David Lynch

“One year, I went to Cannes with the film ‘The Indian Runner’ that Sean Penn directed. Everyone else in the film was all the same height, and on the red carpet, when they were taking photos, none of them would stand next to me, and I totally got it.”

― David Morse

“So much of the bitterness that the term ‘McCarthyism’ evokes refers to the probe begun in New Jersey in the summer of 1953 – both in the laboratories of Fort Monmouth and in the surrounding communities of Red Bank and Belmar, where some of the best scientists and engineers in America worked.”

― David Oshinsky

“A film centered around the Second World War with a predominantly white cast would not have the pressure on it that ‘Red Tails’ has.”

― David Oyelowo

“’The Help’ sheds light on a certain truth in America, but the tragedy is if we don’t get a chance to contrast it with other points of views. ‘The Butler’ does that, ‘Red Tails’ does that and that’s what ’96 Minutes’ does.”

― David Oyelowo

“Reconciliation is what takes place, of course, at higher levels. President Karzai has been very clear about the red lines for reconciliation, accept the constitution, lay down their weapons, cut their ties with al Qaeda and essentially become productive or at least participating members of society in that regard.”

― David Petraeus

“If there is evidence that an employee has broken the law, caused harm to veterans, or have violated the public trust, they should be terminated immediately. Instead, due to overly cumbersome and lengthy arbitrations as well as extensive bureaucratic red tape, VA has not been able to remove employees as quickly as we would have liked.”

― David Shulkin

“It’s funny, one of my most solid carpet moments happened in the very beginning, before I started thinking that I needed all these other people to do my hair and makeup, and pick out my clothes. I wore a cheetah sweater and a red hat, and it’s one of my favorite looks, even still.”

― Dawn Olivieri

“’The Red Era’ is for everybody. Every gay, every fluid, every black, every white.”

― Dawn Richard

“I had a little delivery van, and I did work around Queens. I was also a waiter at Red Lobster, so I was working on the business in between jobs.”

― Daymond John

“That’s one of the best things about the RED ONE – I can use all the best lenses that have been used in film forever.”

― Dean Devlin

“I always fancied someone might call me ‘Red,’ like Katherine Hepburn.”

― Deborah Ann Woll

“As a fair skinned blonde, I disappeared into the background. I’ve always been a loner, so I suppose dyeing my hair red was a way to say, ‘I’m here, I exist, I’m a human being and you can’t just push me aside.’”

― Deborah Ann Woll

“I don’t see myself going back to blonde outside of work though. I really like the red.”

― Deborah Ann Woll

“I never get used to the red carpets and premieres, to be honest, but when you’re walking down the red carpet promoting stories such as ‘Mabo,’ it means everything to me.”

― Deborah Mailman

“I’m doing my best to stay off that financing scheme that relies on this one strip of capital, which is the red carpet. And – no sob story – but it’s hard. It takes a while.”

― Debra Granik

“I could probably die happy with a cheeseboard and a glass of French red wine – that’s my idea of a perfect dinner.”

― Deirdre O’Kane

“I rode fire trucks, slid down fire poles, wore a lot of red, and made a lot of appearances. I’ve always had a special place in my heart for fire fighters.”

― Delta Burke

“People saying, ‘Life didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.’ Welcome to the club. I wanted to be the starting center-fielder for the Boston Red Sox, for chrissakes!”

― Denis Leary

“I’d love to play in a Red Sox game. It would be so awesome to actually walk out on the field and play, just for one inning. I’d also steal everything I could get my hands on in the clubhouse, which is why they won’t let me do it.”

― Denis Leary

“When you think of Grimm’s fairy tales, they are deeply, deeply psychological. They’re so powerful, so bloody, and really, really disturbing. Think about five-year-olds reading that stuff. Even ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ is a really freaky story. Grandma is gobbled up by a wolf, and the wolf is going to eat the girl. That’s scary stuff.”

― Denis O’Hare

“A good margarita, a good red wine, I like expensive alcohol, but not a lot of it. I don’t like to throw up.”

― Denise Richards

“Police in Washington D.C. are now using cameras to catch drivers who go through red lights. Many congressmen this week opposed the use of the red light cameras incorrectly assuming they were being used for surveillance at local brothels.”

― Dennis Miller

“Even on vacation, Rihanna’s easy breezy chic is not complete without a red lip.”

― Derek Blasberg

“Turning the heat up on the red carpet while still looking like a lady isn’t as easy as it sounds. Too much va-va-voom, and a girl can look like she just stepped out of ‘Jersey Shore.’ Too little, and she’ll look like a sister wife.”

― Derek Blasberg

“I shot ‘Blue Valentine’ on 16mm for the past, and for the present on the Red Camera. I feel that both formats are valid. The stories should dictate the format we shoot on. Filmmakers should have a choice.”

― Derek Cianfrance

“When we get in the red zone, we have the mentality that we’re trying to get points. We’re not satisfied with three points. We’re trying to get touchdowns each time we get in there.”

― Deshaun Watson

“We just got to capitalize in the red zone. Don’t turn the ball over.”

― Deshaun Watson

“My sister, mom, and I always make holiday treats like Christmas cutout cookies and red and green chocolate chip cookies.”

― Devon Windsor

“Let it be said that the makeup artist at ‘90210’ made me look better for the fake red carpet than I’ve ever looked on an actual red carpet.”

― Diablo Cody

“Red is the great clarifier – bright and revealing. I can’t imagine becoming bored with red – it would be like becoming bored with the person you love.”

― Diana Vreeland

“I drink red wine on ice to water it down.”

― Diane Keaton

“The only song I can sing is ‘Lady in Red’ so that must tell you how great it must have been.”

― Diane Kruger

“New York is great, but the New England fans are probably the most knowledgeable and ardent fans, and not just in baseball, but all sports. But Red Sox Nation is Red Sox Nation.”

― Dick Williams

“When launching a product called an Energy Drink and named Red Bull, a product that stimulates body and mind, it is a short step to the roots where Red Bull came from. We have been doing this for 20 years – now it’s called adventure sports, extreme sports, and outdoor sports.”

― Dietrich Mateschitz

“After The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, the audience would like to know where, when, and who arrests Hannibal Lecter for the first time. This is the story of Red Dragon.”

― Dino De Laurentiis

“I like styling girls that don’t normally dress in vintage clothes and don’t normally wear red lipstick; I like seeing those kind of girls restyled in a retro way.”

― Dita Von Teese

“I really enjoy watching people like Madonna, or Cher, or Barbra Streisand on the red carpet. I want to see people wearing exciting things that are different and to know that they’re not just looking for the latest, most normal thing.”

― Dita Von Teese

“Red lips don’t look good on blotchy, uneven skin.”

― Dita Von Teese

“You make a movie, and if there’s a red light flashing in the distance, everyone thinks that the director had a whole lot of money and a great idea that the red light means something. Then you say, ‘Yeah, we couldn’t afford to shut the red light off that was broken two blocks away.’”

― Dito Montiel

“Until I was a teenager, I used red pokeberries for lipstick and a burnt matchstick for eyeliner. I used honeysuckle for perfume.”

― Dolly Parton

“I’m from Cleveland, Ohio. And I’ll tell you a real quick thing: we didn’t have a pro hockey team when I was growing up, so I adopted the Red Wings as my hockey team just so I could, you know, be amused and enjoy playoff hockey every single year. I really get into it. Detroit is my team.”

― Dolph Ziggler

“I got very lucky with ‘Harry Potter.’ I got that role because I’m a ginger! Red hair was my only qualification!”

― Domhnall Gleeson

“I was able to represent my country and put on the red, white, and blue – how many people in the world get to do that? Standing on the podium with my teammates, and being the first women’s gymnastics team to win this gold medal, it was life-changing!”

― Dominique Moceanu

“I took some lessons as a kid but trained myself by ear. I did it the way jazz musicians used to learn years ago, which is to play records and slow them down to figure out the notes. At first I tried to imitate Red Garland, who was my favorite jazz pianist.”

― Donald Fagen

“It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.”

― Donald Trump

“Democratic candidates who run from President Obama in red states where he is unpopular are making a big mistake. Their holding Obama at arm’s length deprives voters of a clear choice at the ballot box.”

― Donna Brazile

“Hunger has no ideology. It does not respond to party or to rant. Hunger, in short, is not a red state/blue state problem.”

― Donna Brazile

“I’m a red meat lover. I eat carbs. I love carbs.”

― Donovan Bailey

“You can’t be a Red if you’re married to a civil servant.”

― Doris Lessing

“I live for the Red Sox. I thoroughly enjoy them. For whatever reason, baseball has been a lot more fun for me in recent years. I loosely follow the Patriots and I root for them. I loosely follow the Celtics and then it gets to playoff time and I don’t miss a game. Same with the Bruins. I’m not the diehard fan anymore.”

― Doug Flutie

“Part of an icon’s power comes from its indivisibility. The swoosh cannot be further deconstructed into its component parts. Just as golden arches mean McDonald’s, and the little red tab means Levi’s, the swoosh is Nike. The product is its icon, inseparably and without exception. To buy a pair of Nike shoes is to buy the Nike swoosh.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“Ahead of going on the red carpet, in the morning, I’ll put on a clay mask to prepare.”

― Doutzen Kroes

“I’m tired of the industry, tired of playing the whole game – the dressing up, the red carpet. I hate talking about myself.”

― Drea De Matteo

“A few years ago, I bought an old red bicycle with the words Free Spirit written across its side – which is exactly what I felt like when I rode it down the street in a tie-dyed dress.”

― Drew Barrymore

“Red candy is my favorite – I like red string licorice, Swedish Fish, and red gum balls.”

― Dylan Lauren

“If you do a cable show, you have a radio show, whatever, if you’re fat and you’ve got red hair, look, they’re going to pick on you.”

― Ed Schultz

“I’ve had years of teasing about my red hair, but I definitely think it toughened me up. If you’re ginger, you end up pretty quick-witted.”

― Ed Sheeran

“I want you to be able to go to Aquazzura and find a shoe for every occasion, whether that’s a red carpet ball or picking up your kids from school.”

― Edgardo Osorio

“Every different director has another language – for instance, Hitchcock does not like any bright color ever, unless the story says ‘there goes the girl in a red dress.’”

― Edith Head

“People that went to art house theatre have more options, I used to go, but now think any movie can be delivered in a red envelope three months after it’s released so why not watch it on my flat screen in the comfort of home.”

― Edward Burns

“I sometimes think that never blows so red The Rose as where some buried Caesar bled; That every Hyacinth the Garden wears Dropt in her Lap from some once lovely Head.”

“I don’t get much out of doing a red carpet.”

“The red line must be drawn on Iran’s nuclear enrichment program because these enrichment facilities are the only nuclear installations that we can definitely see and credibly target.”

― Ehud Barak

“I’ve never had a huge collection of records; I’ve never been a beat digga. I never been one of these guys who drives cross-country and knows some one-legged sailor who has a boat parked off some pier with a thousand Russian funk records that he stole from the Red Army in 1972.”

― El-P

“Paris will give bicyclists more rights when it installs 4,300 signs throughout the city, allowing them to barrel though red lights and turn right on red.”

― Elaine Sciolino

“If you feel that it diminishes your intelligence to be asked about your fashion choices for an evening on the red carpet, so be it.”

― Elaine Welteroth

“History could pass for a scarlet text, its jot and title graven red in human blood.”

― Eldridge Cleaver

“So I wanted to show what I did with the money. So I got red silk shirts, beautiful hats, wonderful saddles, a great horse, and two gold teeth. So that was the way I did it.”

― Eli Wallach

“The world was like a huge red carpet out ahead of me to be walked on. And it stretched on and on, no end.”

― Elia Kazan

“As for what I might wear, my mantra is that, no matter how chic the event, I don’t want to look too prim. I like wearing short cocktail frocks to black-tie events; it just always feels more like me, and a bright red lip is always a staple.”

― Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis

“My mom used to keep all her Christmas cards in a basket bedecked with red ribbon, and I loved to look at them all and read all the letters.”

― Elizabeth Berg

“If a test showed you had telomere shortening, it would be a red flag suggesting you should take a look at possible risk factors.”

― Elizabeth Blackburn

“Red carpets are awful. They’re like a kind of purgatory – you stand there, and there are cameras flashing everywhere. One of my first red carpets was in Cannes for ‘The Great Gatsby,’ and I’d never seen anything like it.”

― Elizabeth Debicki

“You think there’s a rule book, in a way, until you realize there’s absolutely no rule book, and you can use a red carpet to express something about yourself. There are so many wonderful designers in the world, and they create such wonderful things. Why go with something uninteresting?”

― Elizabeth Debicki

“I have always been a fan of Alex Perry’s work. His gowns are so beautiful, elegant, and always uniquely crafted to the woman wearing them on the red carpet. They are a true piece of art-meets-couture.”

― Elizabeth Debicki

“The serious questions that are talked out or strangled with red tape are more numerous than those that are killed by silence; the number of people whose ideas are knocked on the head in societies is greater in our day than that of the solitary fighters who go under.”

― Ellen Key

“When I’m out, I like a glass of red wine. Just before bed, I’ll always have a chamomile tea.”

― Ellie Bamber

“I got a random tattoo the other day. It’s a red triangle, which makes everyone think I’m arty, which I’m not. I used to draw red triangles all the time. It must mean something – maybe I don’t know it yet. But I’ll figure it out.”

― Ellie Goulding

“In the daytime during the summer, I only wear ‘Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer’ for coverage. I keep that in my bag at all times. I love ‘RMS Buriti Bronzer’ because it has a little bit of red in it, and my skin is on the reddish side, so it matches really well.”

― Elsa Hosk

“Ice Cube went straight outta Compton to hearing, ‘Are we there yet?’ Eddie Murphy blew up striding across the stage in a red leather ensemble that would have made Elvis Presley chuckle, yet is probably best known to anyone born in the 21st century as the overly chatty donkey from ‘Shrek.’”

― Elvis Mitchell

“Red lipstick aside, I firmly believe that less is more in terms of make-up.”

― Emilia Wickstead

“Darcy, the heroine of ‘Something Blue,’ is quite shallow and opinionated. At one point, she commented that she dislikes ‘gingers,’ i.e., men with red hair. I received several emails from fiery redheads who said they were offended by ‘my’ comments. I had to remind them that it is fiction.”

― Emily Giffin

“I do my own makeup for events and red carpet stuff.”

― Emily Ratajkowski

“I think always what happens when you ask men questions on the red carpet, it’s always based on what projects they’re working on, whatever they’re about, rather than this, ‘Give us little tips for all of us women’… because we’re all the same. Questions should just be more individual.”

― Emily Ratajkowski

“I think so, Silence of the Lambs was a great, suspenseful thriller and I would expect Red Dragon to be similar. And I think it’s very character driven.”

― Emily Watson

“I’ve never been one for color theory or color wheels or undertone rules or anything like that. I don’t know if my red lipstick ‘should’ be more blue or more orange.”

― Emily Weiss

“If I were to reason like those who roll out red carpets, I would say we might have some repatriations from the City of London.”

― Emmanuel Macron

“I had a Spider-man costume when I was about three, and I lost the mask. So I went to the underwear drawer and put a pair of red pants on my head. My dad came home and just laughed, and I ran into my room and burst into tears.”

― Emun Elliott

“I drink a lot of water and a lot of wine. I’m a wine drinker. Red wine, preferably.”

― Engelbert Humperdinck

“The personal appearances and red carpet events are very glitzy, but it’s a bit false.”

― Enya

“I think one of the things that I don’t think people focus on is that there are some red states that have done some really innovative things when it comes to criminal justice reform, including on rehabilitation, reentry efforts. I think one of the things that we have seen in that regard is that you save money.”

― Eric Holder

“I wouldn’t say that I’m an Italian wine connoisseur. I do like red wine. I guess my favorites now are Bordeauxes. French.”

― Erik Larson

“My bike is my main form of transportation, so I’ve got a red clip-on taillight.”

― Erika Christensen

“At the premiere for ‘Leave It to Beaver,’ I was walking down the red carpet, and they were screaming my name, and I’m wondering, ‘What do I do?’ So I had to think, ‘OK, calm down, one person at a time.’ Everything is kind of rattling, but afterwards, my publicist said I did really good.”

― Erika Christensen

“When I first started going on the red carpet, I wore a lot of Armani, but I didn’t really have my own style apart from that. I think I was just lazy.”

― Erika Christensen

“I don’t cheer for anyone because my job is obviously more important, but the reason why I got into sports is because of my father. He’s a giant sports fan and we are from New England, so he cheered for the Celtics and the Red Sox.”

― Erin Andrews

“I love a good steak with a great glass of red wine. But for the TV watching, laying around doing nothing kinds of days, nothing beats a pepperoni pizza and chocolate Haagen Daas.”

― Erin Daniels

“Cycling is a great way to learn about your city. I love being outdoors, especially in good weather, but I’m not a fair weather cyclist. I’m happy to get a red nose in the cold.”

― Erin O’Connor

“I had one particular handbag disaster when I couldn’t get into it, and when I finally did, it flew over the red carpet and was caught by 200 lenses. Not a great moment.”

― Erin O’Connor

“Even though I love fashion and the red carpet dresses are a great, fun, glorious thing, I don’t really have my finger on the pulse, as Phryne Fisher does, of the fashion industry.”

― Essie Davis

“Phryne Fisher could walk down the red carpet; Essie Davis is something else.”

― Essie Davis

“I can’t say I have had a ton of Hollywood exposure, as strange as that sounds. But by pure happenstance, I trailed Javier Bardem on a red carpet at a film festival in Palm Springs years ago. He’s one of my idols, and I endeavor to walk an artistic path similar to his own.”

― Ethan Peck

“I look a lot like my mom. I’m the only one of my siblings with red hair, and she had bright red hair. I always have felt incredibly connected to her.”

― Ethan Slater

“Oh, yeah, I like a high neck. And I like naked backs. It seems very sexy. Red carpets are about being a bit theatrical – having fun rather than being too safe. You have to be brave. Fashion is fun.”

― Eva Green

“I wear no makeup in real life. I’m very simple. That may be why I go over the top for the red carpet. But otherwise, I’m very plain. I should make more of an effort, actually.”

― Eva Green

“Like most markets, Da Jing is most alive just after dawn, when the elementary-school children in their uniforms and bright red kerchiefs set off through narrow streets, marking the start of another frenzied day of commerce.”

― Evan Osnos

“I think that being isolated from the Hollywood world of premieres and red carpet events was probably good for me because I could ease into those at will and by my own choice. But in other aspects, when it comes to fanfare, Hawaii is nuts and in L.A. they’re all so jaded. They don’t care.”

― Evangeline Lilly

“I meditate and I have cut out red meat. For me it is just breathing techniques, learning to be still, to control your thought processes, it calms you down. It wasn’t about dealing with the pressure of games – I’ve always been all right in matches.”

― Fabian Delph

“Every red stripe in that flag represents the black man’s blood that has been shed.”

― Fannie Lou Hamer

“Often the last thing I want to do is stand up in front of 50 cameras on the red carpet. I’d rather have a cup of hot milk and an early night.”

― Felicity Jones

“The U.S. State Department has a consistent record of error in the assessment of Asian situations and judging Red Chinese intentions.”

― Ferdinand Marcos

“I just tend to do things to myself that I don’t realize I’m doing. Sometimes I bite my lip so that it splits and hurts, and yet I can’t stop. And sometimes I’d play shows on the last run, I’d scratch my neck while I was singing, and I’d horrified to see these red streaks of blood after.”

― Fiona Apple

“I have a lot of anxiety about the red carpet. As a woman, it’s uncomfortable to be in a position in which people are judging you, looking at what you’re wearing, and criticizing you – not necessarily in a negative way.”

― Fiona Gubelmann

“Being a dad and being in the Red Hot Chili Peppers and all the stuff I have to do… The trumpet requires a lot of diligence, and I haven’t had the time.”

― Flea

“A good glass of red wine or maybe a little bit too much every now and then is just fine. Heavy boozing, not so much, because you don’t recover enough from it.”

― Floor Jansen

“I’ve been having this really weird anxiety dream about arriving too late or too early, and the people in charge are like, ‘You have to leave! You have to go back to the hotel and get ready!’ And I use the wrong exit, and I’m running down the red carpet in pyjamas, like, ‘No! Don’t look at me!’”

― Florence Welch

“I dyed my hair red when I was ten and when I was 11 – in my goth period – I dyed it black and I was really into witchcraft. I made mini shrines in my bedroom with candles and tried to cast spells to make the boy in the next class fall in love with me. I don’t think he did.”

― Florence Welch

“When I am with my family, then I can just sort of switch off. It’s kind of weird, because I go back and I go into this bedroom that I have had since I was a teenager. It is like this parallel universe, because one minute I am on the red carpet and then the next I am hiding out in this room I have had since I was 15.”

― Florence Welch

“We are on red alert when it comes to how we are perceiving ourselves as a species. There’s no desire to be an adult.”

― Frances McDormand

“The bottom line is that red carpet helps us broaden the appeal of the brand. Calvin Klein used to be about a very specific woman, but we’ve dressed so many different women at awards.”

― Francisco Costa

“My earliest memories of going to Fenway with my father are a blur: many games, me too young to care, but aware that our team ‘stunk.’ In those years, the 1960s, the Red Sox baseball card I always coveted most was not Carl Yastrzemski’s but the far more ordinary Felix Mantilla’s.”

― Francisco Goldman

“A fresh face with a red lip is timeless. It’s supermodern and relaxed but very chic.”

― Francois Nars

“I’ve always loved the way movie stars in the Forties looked when they were off set. Shot poolside or at their home, they always wore a matte red lipstick with practically no foundation – it was how they wore makeup in real life.”

― Francois Nars

“To write long pieces – or not even long pieces – to write stuff like the columns of Red Smith and people like that – they’re different then what it is today. Everything today is based on x’s and o’s. Inside baseball, it’s all, ‘Who’s gonna win?’ or you’re comparing things – it’s not as thoughtful as it used to be.”

― Frank Deford

“The Tigers, Lions, Red Wings, and Pistons are there today as sure as they were when what was good for General Motors was good for the country. Would you rather have a basketball team, or would you rather be Detroit?”

― Frank Deford

“For some reason, I wrote about the bed we slept in when I was a kid. It was a half-acre of misery, that bed, sagging in the middle, red hair sticking out of the mattress, the spring gone and the fleas leaping all over the place.”

― Frank McCourt

“Blue is the male principle, stern and spiritual. Yellow the female principle, gentle, cheerful and sensual. Red is matter, brutal and heavy and always the colour which must be fought and vanquished by the other two.”

― Franz Marc

“I was a kid who got picked on in school, and now the guys beating up those kids were wearing red caps and using my music to fuel that aggression. But if they listen to the lyrics, the aggression is targeted at them.”

― Fred Durst

“We cannot afford the EPA’s continued expansion of red tape that is slowing economic growth and threatening to entangle millions of small businesses.”

― Fred Upton

“I always loved comedy growing up – Bob Hope, Red Skelton and Danny Kaye.”

― Fred Willard

“My wife volunteered her services as Red Cross nurse, insisting upon being sent to the front, in order to be as near me as could be, but it developed later that no nurse was allowed to go farther than the large troop hospitals far in the rear of the actual operations.”

― Fritz Kreisler

“People think fashion shows take hours – it’s 15 minutes. You walk in, do red carpet, take the pictures, you sit down… and then it’s over.”

― Future

“Stony Skunk, when they were with our company, had a song which I personally like called ‘Red Light District.’”

― G-Dragon

“The only description for Nolan in the script was that he’s a very bad dresser. I put on a red windbreaker and every other ugly, ill-fitting thing I could dig out. He was potentially written as a clean-cut nerd, but I wanted a darker spin.”

― Gabriel Mann

“When someone who loves and cares about me compliments me, I feel more glamorous than when the flashbulbs are going off on the red carpet.”

― Gabrielle Union

“I’m a Reuben kinda girl, but I’ll take a BLT with avocado in a red hot minute if it comes on ciabatta.”

― Gail Carriger

“I have a terrific editor in Molly Mahan – she’s the best – and Red Sonja has become up there with Black Canary as my favorite character to write, ever.”

― Gail Simone

“One of the things I am most excited about personally is a five-issue anthology I put together, ‘Legends of Red Sonja,’ which is full of wonderful little short stories written exclusively by my favorite female writers of comics, prose, and gaming.”

― Gail Simone

“I was a fan of the idea of Red Sonja, but the gender politics of the character made her hard to read, for me, at times.”

― Gail Simone

“With ‘Red Sonja’, it’s a single character leading a book although there’s a supporting cast, whereas ‘Secret Six’ is basically six characters who have equal time and equal place in the book, so it’s got a team dynamic that ‘Red Sonja’ doesn’t have.”

― Gail Simone

“Red Sonja, she was a hellraiser before Buffy, Xena, and Ripley even existed. When so many heroines in comics were all hung up on romance and the bizarre gender politics of comics at the time, Sonja was out cutting off the heads of dragons and pirates.”

― Gail Simone

“Delaying and withholding tactics, red herrings, partial and doubtful outcomes are stock in trade for fiction writers, especially crime writers.”

― Garry Disher

“I keep my scrapbooks in the car. When I come to a stoplight, I start looking through my past. Sometimes I wish the red lights were longer.”

― Garry Shandling

“That’s the first sign you know you’re a Libertarian. You see the red light. You stop. You realize that there’s not a car in sight. And you put your foot on the gas.”

― Gary Johnson

“At the earliest age, when I saw a ‘wet paint’ sign, I had to touch the paint to see if it was wet. When I get stopped at the stoplight in the middle of the night, and there’s just no cars coming, and the light is red, I go. I don’t think I’m putting anyone in harm’s way, and I’ll just take the consequences. Because I’m a Libertarian.”

― Gary Johnson

“The great seats of power tend to be wide and open, not vertical and soaring. Red Square, Tiananmen Square, the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin – all massive but with large open spaces that project an image of might.”

― Gary Ross

“When you see Major League Baseball putting academies in other countries, obviously that throws up a red flag. You wonder why they ain’t going up in our neighborhood. Bottom line, what I see, I talk about… I see it over and over. If anybody can show me I’m wrong, then show me.”

― Gary Sheffield

“Okay, let’s talk about cartoon labels for half a second – some people think anything with a dog or a car or a colorful alien is garbage, which is not true. Look at Big Moose Red. It’s, like, a $6 wine with a cheesy label, and it’s actually a solid wine.”

― Gary Vaynerchuk

“I have been constantly working on the interiors of my homes in Delhi, Goa, Dubai, Mumbai, and the Red Chillies Building. I had been designing homes, too. Having a background in art, graphic design, and charcoal helped me in my work immensely.”

― Gauri Khan

“I fell in love with it after going there on holiday when I was 16: we went on one of those red bus tours, and it goes past Juilliard, and I was like, ‘I want to go there’.”

― Gayle Rankin

“And in ‘Frisco Kid’ and in ‘The Woman in Red’ I had to ride badly. Then you have to really ride well in order to ride badly.”

― Gene Wilder

“You know that I am living proof that the American Dream is real. Growing up, our congressman cut through government bureaucratic red tape to help my mom buy our first house. That’s the kind of congressman I’ll be.”

― Geoff Davis

“The sooner we rein in the red tape factory in Washington, D.C., the sooner small businesses can get back to creating jobs and helping more Americans find an honest day’s work.”

― Geoff Davis

“The Green Lanterns are very forward and very courageous, very forceful. The Red Lanterns are out of control, and they’re not in their right mind because when we’re angry or in rage, we say things and we do things we wouldn’t normally do.”

― Geoff Johns

“The blue of my eyes is extinguished in this night, the red gold of my heart.”

― Georg Trakl

“I have, for many years past, contemplated the noble races of red men who are now spread over these trackless forests and boundless prairies, melting away at the approach of civilization.”

― George Catlin

“I’ve walked with very famous people down red carpets over to the crowd of thousands of people, and you’ll reach out to shake their hand and they’ve got a camera in their hand. And they don’t even get their hand out, because they’re recording the whole time.”

― George Clooney

“I think my character’s getting to the point where he can’t even eat spaghetti with red sauce anymore, where he has horrible nightmares, he can’t sleep anymore.”

― George Eads

“The year 2014 was a big year for my taste buds. They really stepped up their game. Like, I got into red wine, coffee and sushi for the first time. Well done, George.”

― George Ezra

“For many years I’ve been using Swarovski accessories when styling editorial photo shoots and also for red carpet appearances.”

― George Kotsiopoulos

“Together, Apple and Walmart represent the intense separation of American life into blue and red, rich and poor, overpriced and undersold, hyperconnected and left behind.”

― George Packer

“In its rather clinical view of death, ‘True Grit’ rivals the hardboiled world of ‘Red Harvest’-era Dashiell Hammett and prefigures Cormac McCarthy by 20 years.”

― George Pelecanos

“Then hast our the Red Stone perfect with less labour, expense of time and costs, for the which ever thank God.”

― George Ripley

“Having been aware of the Red Sox since the 1946 World Series, having been growled at by Ted Williams as a young reporter in 1960, having been present at the horror of 1986 and the comeback of 2004, I have seen the highs and lows of some other people’s favorite team.”

― George Vecsey

“I love Boston. I love Fenway Park. I love Red Sox history. But in no way am I a Red Sox fan.”

― George Vecsey

“We all know the Red Sox did not win a World Series for 86 years after unloading Ruth, and the Cubs just might be carrying some heavy weight for past karmic transgressions.”

― George Vecsey

“In 1997, I was working with Greg Wilson of Red Ball Tiger, our ad agency at the time, when he came up with an addition to the famous slogan ‘I guarantee it’ that I was known for saying.”

― George Zimmer

“Belize suits me because I’m active and I like diving. I learnt when I was 18, in Thailand, and I have dived in Vietnam, which wasn’t great, the Red Sea, which was incredible and reasonably priced, and then the Maldives, which is like being submerged in an aquarium.”

― Georgina Chapman

“My clothes are for the international jet set. They are very much for the red carpet.”

― Giambattista Valli

“One thing I can take credit for, along with the rest of show business, is when the red ribbons were out, we cured AIDS. Any advancements that came towards fighting AIDS were not done by scientists or doctors – it was people with little ribbons on their lapels.”

― Gilbert Gottfried

“White… is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black… God paints in many colours; but He never paints so gorgeously, I had almost said so gaudily, as when He paints in white.”

― Gilbert K. Chesterton

“When you’re young, you need to be silly and be stupid and not be trying to do that when you’re 40 in a red sports car.”

― Gin Wigmore

“I don’t like dressing up, and I don’t like putting on make-up or doing the red carpet. The only red carpet events I go to are if I’m supporting a friend.”

― Gina Bellman

“’Filly Brown’ gave me the wings to fly, but red carpets are still very uncomfortable.”

― Gina Rodriguez

“It’s true that I’ve driven through a number of red lights on occasion, but on the other hand, I’ve stopped at a lot of green ones but never gotten credit for it.”

― Glenn Gould

“You don’t do oysters and red wine together. That’s a no-no; you just don’t do that. I love a nice white wine with oysters.”

― Grace Jones

“As a kid, I was not a tomboy; I was a total girl wearing tutus and red shoes.”

― Grace Potter

“I’ve gotta long list of things to do, bucket list things – play ‘Saturday Night Live,’ make a movie. I want a lot of things, but one of my deepest wishes would be to headline – and sell out – Red Rocks.”

― Grace Potter

“Red certainly is the family color. From my mother and my grandmother, I’ve learned a lot of little tricks – the significance of color and lipstick being one of them. I started skating when I was eight years old, and my mom did my makeup for me back then.”

― Gracie Gold

“My go-to is a red lip. It’s a timeless fashion statement, and I’ve loved doing it ever since I was little. My favorite classic red is CoverGirl Lip Perfection in #305 Hot.”

― Gracie Gold

“A lip brush is really helpful when applying a red lip because it makes the lines smoother. You can see a bumpy line from really far away.”

― Gracie Gold

“I only wear red socks in the kitchen. They bring me luck.”

― Graham Elliot

“I’d love to open a restaurant that changes every month. One month it would be a mom and bar spaghetti-and-meatball, Red Sox place, and the next it would be a British pub, and everyone gets in a fight.”

― Graham Elliot

“I’ve picked up quite a few yellow cards in the last few years – a few reds, too. That was the case as a youth player as it is now. But I don’t see it as a problem. That’s how I play. If you take that away, then I wouldn’t be where I am now. So I don’t think the yellow cards or the red cards are too big of an issue.”

― Granit Xhaka

“I have a Twitter profile, but I avoid red carpets and all that kind of stuff. I’d rather no one talk about me ever, and I just get to do my thing. I’m an introvert.”

― Greg Berlanti

“I think the reason why ‘Red Eye’ is popular is because we question the common assumptions that you find elsewhere.”

― Greg Gutfeld

“Film has far more color shades. It’s called ‘bit depth’ in digital terms. And most bit depth in digital is about twelve, but film bit depth can be twenty to thirty. And so you just have more shades of yellow and red and oranges and everything.”

― Greg MacGillivray

“I like to stay away from that red carpet world unless I absolutely have to do it. I’d rather put on my Tom Ford suit and take a few pictures at home.”

― Grigor Dimitrov

“At home I wear my own clothes, no makeup and don’t do anything exciting with my hair. I get to borrow pretty dresses for the red carpet and have experts do my hair and makeup.”

― Gugu Mbatha-Raw

“Read the sacred writings of all the peoples on Earth. Through all of them runs, like a red thread, the hidden Science of attaining and maintaining wakefulness.”

― Gustave Meyrink

“I think everyone loves a slash of red lipstick.”

― Gwendoline Christie

“I don’t eat red meat, but sometimes a man needs a steak.”

― Gwyneth Paltrow

“Once you become president, you don’t even have to stop for red lights. And if it looks like traffic’s too bad, you just take a helicopter.”

― H. W. Brands

“Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in… I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards… It wasn’t until I started attending red carpet events and was flown out to Paris for my first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everything.”

― Hailee Steinfeld

“Actors play different characters in every project they do. Though it has nothing to do with my craft, the red carpet gives me the opportunity to show who I really am and be myself.”

― Hailee Steinfeld

“I prefer clean silhouettes that are almost utilitarian, but I’m not afraid to take risks on the red carpet, either.”

― Haley Bennett

“I was so terrified before an audience that I would break out in these ugly red hives, and my lips would quiver at the sight of a word or a song.”

― Haley Bennett

“Celebrities might be experts when it comes to working the red carpet, but relying on them to guide your health and wellness can be a slippery slope.”

― Harley Pasternak

“Bob Hope, Red Skelton, and Eddie Cantor… help us keep our balance.”

― Hattie McDaniel

“I love to wear red lipstick a lot, even in the daytime.”

― Heather Morris

“I put on lip balm first thing in the morning and always use it before I swipe on my red lipstick.”

― Heather Morris

“My boys wear red pants or crazy color tops. My kids are more fashion forward in their own dressing.”

― Heidi Klum

“Great loves, to the last, have pulses red; All great loves that have ever died dropped dead.”

― Helen Hunt Jackson

“But great loves, to the last, have pulses red; All great loves that have ever died dropped dead.”

― Helen Hunt Jackson

“I love men that love women. Morgan Freeman, who I worked with on ‘RED,’ was very flattering to me. But he is flattering to all women. He is a woman-charmer.”

― Helen Mirren

“My dream customer is every celebrity that’s on the red carpet, everybody at the Met Gala, and on top of that, just everybody and anybody. I would dress everybody.”

― Hennessy Carolina

“My favorite holiday look would be either red velvet or sequins. That’s always gonna be my go-to for a holiday look! It’s a classic; it always works. It goes perfect with the occasion and the weather. It’s a feel.”

― Hennessy Carolina

“I think Jennifer Lawrence seems to really get it right when she’s on the red carpet.”

― Henrik Lundqvist

“Subletting is great. You get to try on all these different versions of yourself. This apartment was clearly decorated by an artist – there’s a great, big, huge chandelier and red fur rug, and it’s all stuff that I would never, ever, ever buy.”

― Hilarie Burton

“I came here as a man of visions. I was sent here as a man of visions, like a second Noah. I’m not a Noah but I’m here as a second Noah. I’m here as a red light is in the street.”

― Howard Finster

“The first show I ever did, singing and dancing, was ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ I was playing Gaston. Gaston has red tights, knee high boots, and it’s very physical. I had headaches every day for two months.”

― Hugh Jackman

“I love dressing up for the red carpet.”

― Huma Qureshi

“I usually eat in my friend Tom Corcoran’s place – the Siam Thai in Monkstown. I go there for a very large plate of beef in red wine sauce.”

― Ian McKeever

“The most difficult part of any crime novel is the plotting. It all begins simply enough, but soon you’re dealing with a multitude of linked characters, strands, themes and red herrings – and you need to try to control these unruly elements and weave them into a pattern.”

― Ian Rankin

“I think ‘The Wire’ really is relatable. It reflects an ongoing issue across America, about inaccuracies in major cities between rich and the poor and some of the things that go on behind the red tape of council and government bodies.”

― Idris Elba

“We are determined to improve the economic environment by getting foreign investors in and by cutting red tape.”

― Igor Luksic

“My first car was a 1999 red Mazda Protege.”

― Ike Barinholtz

“On a Friday night in 1983, I was in a taxi in New York riding home from dinner with friends. A drunk driver ran a red light and hit the cab, and I was thrown toward the glass partition. I tried to duck, but my face hit the glass, and the impact fractured my cheekbone, my eye socket, my collarbone and several ribs.”

― Iman

“The best way to get a sense of what kinds of emergencies might present themselves in your community is by contacting local chapters of the American Red Cross or offices of emergency management in the region or state. Most large cities will have their own offices of emergency management.”

― Irwin Redlener

“I get up every morning early, when the sky is red, and write for 10 hours.”

― Isabel Allende

“The situation of Leh is a grand one, the great Kailas range, with its glaciers and snowfields, rising just behind it to the north, its passes alone reaching an altitude of nearly 18,000 feet; while to the south, across a gravelly descent and the Indus Valley, rise great red ranges dominated by snow-peaks exceeding 21,000 feet in altitude.”

― Isabella Bird

“In the late 1960s, red and the low green LEDs and the infrared semiconductor lasers had already been developed, but there was no prospect of practical blue light emitters, even in the ’70s.”

― Isamu Akasaki

“It’s always a huge red flag for me when somebody’s reticent or reluctant or a little slow in providing thoughtful references that are a testament to them as a person and their professional accomplishments.”

― Ivanka Trump

“I’m on my version of the protein diet, but there ain’t no protein in it. It’s a Krispy Kreme doughnut between two Cinnabons. And you soak it overnight in Red Bull. Then you chase it with a Snickers.”

― J. B. Smoove

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

― J. B. Smoove

“One day, I’ll be listening to a bunch of Ray Charles, the next day it’s nothing but Red Hot Chili Peppers. The next day it might be Tupac all day.”

― J. Cole

“If it’s hard for Blue America to see Red America as anything other than a bunch of dumb, racist rednecks; it’s hard for Red America to recognize that many minorities are legitimately worried about what a Trump presidency means for their family.”

― J. D. Vance

“I don’t like to hurt people, I really don’t like it at all. But in order to get a red light at the intersection, you sometimes have to have an accident.”

― Jack Anderson

“In 2012, General Dempsey, General Petraeus directed the CIA, Secretary Panetta and Secretary Clinton recommended to the president to robustly arm and train the Syrian moderates. He says no. In 2013, conduct a military strike, same national security team, against the Assad regime because he violated the chemical red line. He says no.”

― Jack Keane

“With the White Stripes we were trying to trick people into not realising we were playing the blues. We did not want to come off like white kids trying to play black music from 100 years ago so a great way to distract them was by dressing in red, white and black.”

― Jack White

“Red, electric blue – the only color I don’t wear is green, which I still don’t wear. I wear certain color greens, but I have such yellow skin so I always like to wear bold colors.”

― Jackee Harry

“I was very confused in the beginning about my red carpet appearances and wanted to try every look, be it grungy, girly, punk or bohemian.”

― Jacqueline Fernandez

“When I was a child, we always had wine on the table, no matter how simple the meal. The wine had no special identity; it was just ‘the wine,’ from the cellar cask. The rules were general: white with the first course, red with the main course.”

― Jacques Pepin

“Ask yourself why a red carpet is red. It could be any colour.”

― Jake Gyllenhaal

“A lot is made of the pink ball. But it is the same really. A good ball is a good ball, regardless of the colour. You might want to bowl a touch fuller with the pink ball when it is nipping around but generally a pink kookaburra behaves the same as a red kookaburra.”

― James Anderson

“I used to dress up like Michael Jackson. I didn’t have the glove, but I had a red jacket like in ‘Thriller.’”

― James Bay

“When George W. Bush was president, his daddy was raising money for the Bush library. I thought that was fine. When Bob Dole was Majority Leader, Elizabeth Dole was the president of American Red Cross. I didn’t say anything.”

― James Carville

“My blood’s not red or blue – it’s brown.”

― James Carville

“I married a woman from New Orleans, so I had family here. Post-Katrina, I had a number of friends call me up and say they wanted to do something to help the community – not just Habitat for Humanity or Red Cross, we’ve done that, but what can we do for the community.”

― James Coulter

“Red is a benevolent dictatorship.”

― James Jannard

“With the release of the Dragon sensor… I have finished my mission. I am done posting. I will no longer be the face of Red.”

― James Jannard

“What separates us from other camera companies is that the vision guy is the decision maker. That was one of my biggest advantages at Oakley, and it’s the same at Red – I’m in the trenches, in the product development, and I make the final call.”

― James Jannard

“The concept of Red was to build a camera with as much capability as possible… for the professional market. Then we thought we could extend it down a bit to the prosumer level. Apparently, that was a mistake.”

― James Jannard

“I did ‘Red Riding,’ which is TV in the U.K. It became a feature project in North America, but we’re in a great era of TV. We all know that, and we hear it all the time, but for filmmakers, it’s just a godsend to have your television writing and work to do on television, and the means to do it properly.”

― James Marsh

“I don’t want to be all worthy about it, but I don’t do red carpets, I don’t do events and I don’t accept freebies that much.”

“I grew up a Red Sox fan. I grew up going to Fenway Park and the Museum of Fine Arts and the Science Museum and Symphony Hall and going to the Common, walking around. My whole family at different times lived and worked in Boston.”

― James Spader

“Developing countries often have hypertrophied bureaucracies, requiring businesses to deal with enormous amounts of red tape.”

― James Surowiecki

“For years I’d thought my color was black: deep, dark, thoughtful, mysterious. Black, you can hide behind. But now I know it is red.”

― Jami Attenberg

“I think that there should be this thing for cover-ups on tattoos. I want to develop it. It’s like a skin-toned transfer, and then all the make-up artist has to do is airbrush over it to blend it into the skin. There’s nothing like that. At the moment, you literally have to go red and get it to skin color, which takes forever.”

― Jamie Campbell Bower

“I challenge you, to go to any school and open 50 lunchboxes, and I guarantee you there will be one or two cans of Red Bull, there’ll be cold McDonald’s and jam sandwiches with several cakes.”

― Jandy Nelson

“My mum taught me that redheads shouldn’t wear pink, red or orange, but if you choose the right shade, such as a bright orange or a cherry red, it can look fabulous.”

― Jane Asher

“I put some red stuff on my mouth and cheeks so I look healthy – any old red lip pencil and a lip colour from Dr. Hauschka in a crushed berry tone. I never put anything on my eyes, or I look like Joan Crawford.”

― Jane Birkin

“I colour my hair mousy brown and I wear makeup only on stage. I use Laura Mercier – something called Biscuit, I think. I run one tiny sponge over my face and cover the red blotches. If I’ve got some rouge, I’ll bung it on my mouth and cheeks.”

― Jane Birkin

“By the time I joined the ‘Washington Post’ sports staff in 1979, Red’s Runyonesque notion of sports writing was obsolete.”

― Jane Leavy

“I’m not a natural redhead, but I enjoy having red hair.”

― Jane Levy

“I remember the first year at the Game Developers Conference I wore these big red giant knee-high boots. Nobody cared. You can wear anything you love, because that’s what you do in games. You make yourself who you want to be.”

― Jane McGonigal

“Ignorance and bloodlust have a long tradition in the United States, especially in the red states.”

― Jane Smiley

“I’ll refer to my music in color, like ‘This song needs to be bright red.’”

― Janelle Monae

“In Portugal, my sculpture ‘She Changes’ refers to the town’s fishing history, to the era of seafaring trade and discovery. The contemporary site is industrial, surrounded by red and white striped smokestacks, which is mirrored in the pattern of the sculpture.”

― Janet Echelman

“I’ve always been a tomboy. I’ve always liked to wear red, black, and white, and mostly pants.”

― Janet Jackson

“You take your shots when you have them, and I threw a lot of touchdowns, but I’m always going to take care of the football in the red zone.”

― Jared Goff

“I got a pair of red, synthetic satin women’s pants through the post the other day with a phone number on. That was quite strange. I haven’t tried the phone number. In times of stress I may.”

― Jarvis Cocker

“For any writer, a red pen is such a trigger.”

― Jason Isbell

“I couldn’t get a job to save my life. That’s why I wrote ‘Road to Paloma.’ That got into Sundance and got into that scene, and that’s how I got the role in ‘The Red Road.’”

― Jason Momoa

“President Bush’s proposal to focus our resources on sending humans to Mars is intriguing, but it is not the most compelling reason that Americans ought to focus our interest on the Red Planet.”

― Jay Inslee

“Sarah Palin is a figure of fun on the American left, easily lampooned as a know-nothing, gun-toting ex-beauty queen who loves God and the red, white and blue above pretty much anything else except for Todd, her macho husband, who races snowmobiles across the Alaskan tundra.”

― Jay Parini

“I definitely know that I’m quirky. I know that I’m different. Red hair definitely made me different growing up.”

― Jayma Mays

“I’m still a Red Bull driver. I’m part of this family more than ever.”

― Jean-Eric Vergne

“All I understand is that Toro Rosso is there with Red Bull-backing, which is a team to promote young drivers. And it stands that after three years, you’re not really a young driver anymore and that they need to keep feeding the programme with young drivers.”

― Jean-Eric Vergne

“I’m a Red American; I believe in tax cuts. But I’m a Red American with a lot of Blue stripes.”

“Every time I walk down one of those red carpets, you think I’d be used to it after all these years, but it’s like it’s happening for the first time.”

― Jeff Bridges

“In early 1961 a new president, John F. Kennedy, was told by military leaders and civilian officials that the Kingdom of Laos – of no conceivable strategic importance to the U.S. – required the presence of American troops and perhaps even tactical nuclear weapons. Why? Because if Laos fell, Asia would go red from Thailand to Indonesia.”

― Jeff Greenfield

“Red lipstick has always been a classic. You have seen the red lip on people from Marilyn Monroe to Marilyn Manson. The right shade of red can turn a boring look into a bold, eye-catching statement.”

“You really just can’t go wrong with a classic red lip.”

― Jeffree Star

“Seventh grade was the first time I dyed my hair, and I went to school with red and black stripes, so I looked like a zebra.”

― Jeffrey Dean Morgan

“Our citizens never hesitate to take sides against one another, whether it’s Democrats versus Republicans, Coke drinkers opposed to Pepsi enthusiasts or Yankee loyalists against Red Sox aficionados.”

― Jen Lancaster

“Instead of trying crazy diets now, I just live by a few easy rules: I try to stay away from white flour as much as I can – I go for grains and brown rice instead, and I pick lean meats, like chicken or turkey, over red meat most of the time.”

― Jenna Ushkowitz

“Growing up, I watched softball and U.S.A .softball, and that was my goal of being able to represent my country and wear the red, white, and blue out there, and I think it is one of the highest honors to be able to go out there and compete for your country, and it was something so very special, and it was everything I dreamt of and more.”

― Jennie Finch

“The last thing I want to do is complain; I love what I do, and I know every job comes with a downside. But boy, this one’s a doozy…You pull out of your driveway, and the paparazzi literally chase you, running red lights – I’m a really careful driver, especially with my kids in the car, but I worry they’re going to cause an accident.”

― Jennifer Garner

“I didn’t even know I was considered plus-size until I was on the red carpet here in L.A. one day and a lady said, ‘How do you feel about being a plus-sized girl in Hollywood?’ I was like, ‘What’s she talking about?’”

― Jennifer Hudson

“I think Johnny Depp could play just about any role – I’d love to see what he would do with the Red Queen!”

― Jennifer Todd

“I wouldn’t say I was grumpy. It’s more pathological – I have seismic tantrums. I get red in the face and cry at least three times a week, and I have to lie down and have a nap afterwards.”

― Jenny Eclair

“I like to write from midnight to dawn with great stores of candy and Red Bull laid in… I’m not sure why I have the work habits of a 20-year-old coder, but no matter how many times I set up a more reasonable schedule, I always fall back to this.”

― Jenny Offill

“There is definitely a ‘red carpet moment’ to a bride’s wedding day, but when designing for bridal, it is important to focus on the details that will captivate and capture the imagination of the bride – she has to fall in love with the gown.”

― Jenny Packham

“I think, for us, as an evening wear line, anytime someone on the red carpet wears our dress, it’s an endorsement.”

― Jenny Packham

“I think it’s very important to women what they want to watch. They’re looking all the time to the red carpet to see what to wear, and it sets off all sorts of trends.”

― Jenny Packham

“What would we be without the fans? They’re more important than me, because they make our sport great; they make things happen. We put on the show, but if people don’t react to it, we are nothing. So, the fans, basically we should roll out the red carpet for them.”

― Jens Voigt

“I see all the red carpet paparazzi stuff and I’m like, ‘Really? Do I have to?!’ I like to work and I know that’s part of the job. But you kind of take it in stride.”

― Jensen Ackles

“If you’re thinking of coming to America, this is what it’s like: you’ve got your Comfort Inn, you’ve got your Best Western, and you’ve got your Red Lobster where you eat. Everybody’s very fat, everybody’s very stupid and everybody’s very rude – it’s not a holiday programme, it’s the truth.”

― Jeremy Clarkson

“And whenever I’m in a situation where I’m wearing the same as 600 other people and doing the same thing as 600 other people, looking back, I always found ways to make myself different, whether it be having a red lining inside of my jacket, having red shoes, it hasn’t changed.”

― Jeremy Irons

“I don’t do many social events in the fashion industry. Instead, I go to things like the MTV awards because that’s where I fit in – wearing a yellow tuxedo and no shirt on a red carpet.”

― Jeremy Scott

“When I moved to Paris at 16, I held a dinner party in my first apartment and served only red wine, French fries, and mashed potatoes. Unable to cook, I relied on people taking me out.”

― Jerry Jones

“Red is uplifting.”

― Jerry Lewis

“I wanted to be Bob Hope or Red Skelton from the time I was 8 years old.”

― Jerry Van Dyke

“Lipstick doesn’t really suit me. For shoots or when I go out, I use it – but if I use it all the time, it makes me look really old, so I keep it natural with nude or a natural pink. Though I did just do a shoot where they did a big red lip, and it looked amazing.”

― Jess Glynne

“I tend to like the last sentence I just wrote, which is: ‘It was late in the fall and the trees lining our driveway had turned red like a row of burning matches.’”

― Jess Walter

“To allow injustice and inequality invites a Ferguson to your community. We must stand together, black, white, brown, red, and yellow and fight for justice and equality for all. It’s the only way to avoid more Fergusons.”

― Jesse Jackson

“I started taking my fiance, Justin, to some red carpet events I would go to, and a bowtie is often something that was required. We came across a lot of stylish bowties. We liked playing dress up for these events and we thought it would be fun to start a line, but it was never a reality until recently.”

― Jesse Tyler Ferguson

“Having red hair is never good when you’re a kid. I was picked on a lot and didn’t have a lot of friends. But I think that gave me a thick skin and helped make me a better person.”

― Jesse Tyler Ferguson

“On the red carpet, I’m playing a character. As soon as I get off that thing, I think, ‘Oof, wipe that gloss off.’ I’m wiping and wiping and pulling my hair out and trying to change my outfit. I’m immediately trying to get comfortable. It’s really a part I play.”

― Jessica Biel

“I’ve braved the red carpet when I didn’t feel comfortable, and when I look at the pictures, it always shows!”

― Jessica Capshaw

― Jessica Chastain

“I have problems because I’m very expressive, and usually red lipstick gets on my teeth and face.”

― Jessica Chastain

“I’m either thought of as ethereal or fiery. And maybe that’s the interesting thing about red hair: there’s that fiery Renaissance connotation and the ethereal.”

― Jessica Chastain

“I love getting dressed up for red carpet events and having my hair and makeup done professionally – that definitely helps with nerves of going down the red carpet.”

― Jessica Ennis-Hill

“I had a paint pony called Half-Pint, and I rode her in Madison Square Garden, and that was my first big show. But my first real pony was this red pony called Chantal. He was absolutely amazing. He was a great pony, except he did spin me off a couple of times! I would blink, and then I would be on the floor.”

― Jessica Springsteen

“I’m going to be that little old lady that’s just, like, walking around and just, like, full of energy, probably with bright red hair or something crazy.”

― Jessie James Decker

“Red carpet is always fun, but you’re never going to see me on the street or in the grocery store in 6-inch heels. But I am always going to have big, fabulous hair and makeup.”

― Jessie James Decker

“You definitely need to have red lipstick no matter what. You can have a great outfit, but it will always give you that extra little pop. I also love perfume. It doesn’t even matter what the perfume is. I like to smell sweet.”

― Jillian Hervey

“A brown lip liner will affect a red lipstick differently than a red lip liner.”

― Jillian Hervey

“The only advice I can give to aspiring writers is don’t do it unless you’re willing to give your whole life to it. Red wine and garlic also helps.”

― Jim Harrison

“I learned this a long time ago. If you call a guy into your office and shut the door, if there’s media around, it sends up a red flag. I never wanted to embarrass a player.”

― Jim Leyland

“U2 are a great band; they’ve given us an unbelievable body of work, and all of us musicians owe them at least something. I can honestly say that every time I have played the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, as soon as my drums are set up, I go into the beat of ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday.’”

― Jimmy Chamberlin

“We picked the Red Sox because they lose. If you root for something that loses for 86 years, you’re a pretty good fan. You don’t have to win everything to be a fan of something.”

― Jimmy Fallon

“I became a Yankees fan for a few years. But now, I gotta say, I’m really rooting for the Red Sox.”

― Jimmy Fallon

“All those trucks and barges that carry our goods to port are vital connections to the only force which can balance our trade deficit: export. We must keep doing what we do best if we are going to get America out of the red.”

― Jo Ann Emerson

“Now, I recognize that there are certain postures and angles that make people see red, which are evidence of original sin or something, and I avoid that. I don’t shoot that any more.”

― Jock Sturges

“I didn’t think there was anything more or less obscene about any part of the body. Now, I recognize that there are certain postures and angles that make people see red, which are evidence of original sin or something, and I avoid that.”

― Jock Sturges

“When I’m working with Red One, we all have to do everything, from making sets and costumes to tearing tickets. Forget about craft services! So when I get on a film set, it’s a thrill to be just working as an actor.”

― Joe Dinicol

“I’ve lived on my own since 17, and when I found I wasn’t working all the time, I ended up starting a small theatre company called Red One Theatre.”

― Joe Dinicol

“You’ll never see me in the red leather. I don’t have the chin for it.”

― Joe Pantoliano

“It seems ridiculous that you can be in one state with your driver’s license and buy a firearm, and then in the next state it is totally illegal. There are real problems to that, but as soon as you bring up the subject and say ‘gun control,’ it sets a red flag.”

― Joe Perry

“I worked at a vintage guitar store, and the owner had ties with a lot of Japanese manufacturers and U.S. manufacturers that were beginning to pop up. So I was ordering parts and screwing them together and contacting local luthiers to finish and do frets and things, and I had put together two guitars, a red one and a black one.”

― Joe Satriani

“It’s very difficult when there are pictures taken on the red carpet. I find those things so terrifying that another persona just kicks in. I don’t recognise myself.”

― Joely Richardson

“It’s easy. You draw a red line on the ground, right? Then you wait for a chicken to come along. When he arrives, he puts his beak right on the line and he’s hypnotized!”

― Joey Santiago

“Just as the Red Sox proved the critics wrong, Maine can compete and can win.”

― John Baldacci

“Silver and ermine and red faces full of port wine.”

― John Betjeman

“There is a red sandy beach in the Minas Basin in Nova Scotia that is unlike any other shore landscape I have ever seen. The world’s highest tides wash its shores, and the soft cliffs of Blomidon Provincial Park are constantly crumbling away; whole trees will occasionally slide down to the sea to decay slowly in the wind and brine.”

― John Burnside

“The red squirrel is more common and less dignified than the gray, and oftener guilty of petty larceny about the barns and grain-fields.”

― John Burroughs

“I wanted to be Red Barber, Mel Allen or Howard Cosell. I loved their personalities and all of their sounds.”

― John C. McGinley

“I chose John Carroll Lynch as my SAG name when I was 19 years old. I was working in D.C., and I got my SAG card by doing a first aid film for the Red Cross called ‘Bleeding Control’. They had a union contract.”

― John Carroll Lynch

“Singling out political opponents for working against the ruling party is precisely the tactic of every tyrannical government from Red China to Venezuela. The first step in the process is creating unfounded public suspicion of political opponents, followed by arresting and jailing any who continue speaking against the regime.”

― John Carter

“I am a real New Yorker… I didn’t go to Harvard, I didn’t go to Yale… I rooted for the Yankees; I didn’t root for the Boston Red Sox.”

― John Catsimatidis

“I was bullied at school for my red hair; today I still come out fighting hard. I give as good as I get. In business, it’s about finding solutions, not being rolled over.”

― John Caudwell

“All literary men are Red Sox fans – to be a Yankee fan in a literate society is to endanger your life.”

― John Cheever

“You can always find a reason to say no. It’s the easiest vote. It’s also not exactly a red badge of courage.”

― John Cornyn

“Veterans come from all walks of life, and they live in small towns and big cities, in red states and blue states.”

― John Delaney

“I had always been heavily influenced by stand-up. I was in a comedy team called Red Johnny And The Round Guy.”

― John DiMaggio

“As with sound, images are subjective. You and I may not see the same color red as red, but we will probably agree that the image on the screen is a digital image or film image, based on contrast, bit depth, and refresh rate.”

― John Dykstra

“As much as we love an excuse to dress up, the red carpet is not the place.”

― John Gourley

“I got ‘The Red White and Blue’ out of journalism. It puts you in touch with the world.”

― John Gregory Dunne

“In Colorado, we passed universal background checks and magazine limits. We need to do that nationally, and we need to raise the purchase age, extend waiting periods for gun purchases, fund gun violence research, pass red flag laws, and more – no matter how hard the gun lobby tries to block it.”

― John Hickenlooper

“Here in the UK the government has decided to accept the recommendations of the Better Regulation Task Force to measure and make targeted reductions in the administrative costs – the red tape costs – that regulations impose on business.”

― John Hutton

“I’m an avid Boston Red Sox fan.”

― John Lithgow

“It has long been known that if you want to see me turn into a raging, snarling beast, then all you have to do is use any combination of the words ‘chill out,’ ‘chilling,’ or – my maximum red rag – ‘chillax.’”

― John Niven

“When I was a boy during Thatcher, you watched elections and wept in disbelief as the whole country turned blue, Scotland turned red, and we still got the Tories.”

― John Niven

“Health care comprises nearly 20 percent of our national economy, but outdated bureaucracy and red tape have stifled competition and raised costs. As a result, today more than 45 million are without any health coverage.”

― John Shadegg

“I guarantee you that the people who watch ‘Conan O’Brien’ or who watch ‘Entertainment Tonight’ and probably a lot of these other programs have never heard of Operation Blessing. Maybe they have heard of UNICEF, and I’m sure they have heard of the Red Cross, but they haven’t heard of this organization.”

― John Tesh

“The sense of war, the extraordinary bravery of the Allied armies, the numbers, the losses, the real suffering that disappears in time and commemorative oratory, are not marked out in any red guidebook of the emotions, but they are present if you look.”

― John Vinocur

“It’s pretty easy to make a film in China. A few years ago I just walked into the office and let them know I wanted to make a movie called ‘Red Cliff’ and they were so excited. They said, ‘Let’s do it!’ It’s that simple.”

― John Woo

“There is absolutely no Wuxia or martial arts in ‘Red Cliff.’ I want all the action to look realistic.”

― John Woo

“You know, a lot of people say they didn’t want to die until the Red Sox won the World Series. Well, there could be a lot of busy ambulances tomorrow.”

― Johnny Damon

“I remember in that red leisure suit I sort of felt like a Pizza Hut employee, and the white one was the ultimate, with the white turtleneck collar, that was the ultimate in bad taste.”

― Johnny Depp

“Some bands blow it before they even play. The most important moment of any show is when a band walks out with the red amp lights glowing, the flashlight that shows each performer the way to his spot on the stage. It’s crucial not to blow it. It sets the tempo of the show; it affects everyone’s perception of the band.”

― Johnny Ramone

“In 1965, Gibson made the red one I use now, and a black one, which was the first black 335 they ever made.”

― Johnny Rivers

“I show up in a playoff game, I have my sideline sheet. I can’t even spit plays out, I get so excited. I mean, you get nervous. These are critical, do-or-die situations. Third down and 1, Red Zone, what do I call? Two minute drill? Are we going to go no huddle? These are decisions that you wrestle with.”

― Jon Gruden

“The Red Sox believe what’s written. If it’s written that I should be traded, more times than not, that’s what ends up happening. Look at the people who’ve gotten traded around here. It’s not their doing.”

― Jon Lester

“Every technology company should have a red button somewhere in the headquarters where, if they realize they’ve caused more societal harm than they expected and done more harm than good, they press the button, and the company dissolves instantly.”

― Jon Lovett

“Corporate documents, like football game plans, are not easily drafted in a stadium, with thousands of very interested fans participating, each with their own red pencil, trying to reach a consensus on every word.”

― Jon Postel

“Style-wise, Valle Nevado is what can only be described as ‘hip international.’ Brazilians, Chileans and Europeans make the place seem like an electronic music festival transported to an remote Andean valley. Huge speakers blare out thumping, bass-heavy music, while promotoras stalk the staircases selling everything from Red Bull to mobile phones.”

― Jonathan Franklin

“I feel best in a ragged pair of red Honda Motorcycle pants. I have taken them to Machu Picchu, to the Knob Creek Machine Gun festival, and backstage to Cirque du Soleil – just the right touch to make you untouchable. No one quite dares to throw you out, because perhaps you are a world class motocross racer.”

― Jonathan Franklin

“The Republican and Democratic parties have accomplished an amazing feat with the red state/blue state paradigm. They’ve convinced everyone that regardless of how bad they are, the other guy is worse.”

― Jonathan Turley

“We want Iowa to remain red. We have worked so hard to get here. We will not be a purple state: we will be a red state.”

― Joni Ernst

“I like to think I play rugby as it should be played – there are no yellow or red cards in my collection – but I cannot say I’m an angel.”

― Jonny Wilkinson

“What I learned growing up in Red Mountain Theatre Company is real power and time management and how to represent myself well. How to show up earlier and stay later. Red Mountain Theatre Company, in my opinion, is the most incredible theater conservatory in the world.”

― Jordan Fisher

“In Spain, we mainly use red plum tomatoes, but it is always fun to experiment. Try using a mix of colors or substitute green tomatoes for plum next time you make a tomato dish.”

― Jose Andres

“I listened to all the Misfits albums growing up and Red Hot Chili Peppers, too.”

― Jose Gonzalez

“A red tie is contrary to the dignity of the tie and of male dress in general.”

― Joseph Addison

“Every important machine’s got to have a big red button.”

― Joseph DeRisi

“Whenever you’re sitting across from some important person, always picture him sitting there in a suit of long red underwear. That’s the way I always operated in business.”

― Joseph P. Kennedy

“I love the competitive part of stocks. A lot of fear and greed, that’s all it is. All I see is green and red.”

― Josh Brolin

“As far as I’m concerned, I want to do everything because life is short. So, when I did ‘The Red Violin’ film, I got to go to the Oscars, and I got to meet Samuel Jackson, and I got to do stuff that one wouldn’t normally do in my world.”

― Joshua Bell

“My ancestors include Monahwee, who was one of the leaders in the Red Stick War, which was the largest Indian uprising in history, and Osceola, who refused to sign a treaty with the United States.”

― Joy Harjo

“If you’ve never feared the police – if you don’t get a dull ache in the pit of your stomach when you see red and blue flashing lights, even when you know you’re not doing anything wrong – consider yourself lucky.”

― Joy Reid

“We are not, in some fundamental ways, a single country. The map of that vast red swatch of states and rural counties that voted for Trump, and the blue coastal edges and scattered urban centers where Clinton won, are a pictograph of mutual contempt.”

― Joy Reid

“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

“Alaska and Montana are not in the south but they definitely form part of the crimson tide of red states where Republicans are dominant.”

― Juan Williams

“I’m kind of ashamed to be a celebrity. I don’t understand wanting to read about other people’s dirty laundry. I think celebrity is the biggest red herring society has ever pulled on itself.”

― Jude Law

“Artists can color the sky red because they know it’s blue. Those of us who aren’t artists must color things the way they really are or people might think we’re stupid.”

― Jules Feiffer

“Even on the red carpet, French celebrities keep it minimal. Think of Charlotte Gainsbourg – the look can be quite undone.”

― Julia Restoin Roitfeld

“I think the culture of the red carpet is too much like a modern-day coliseum. If you’re being photographed all the time, and you don’t like having a bad photograph taken, and if you’re super, super thin, chances are you’re never going to look fat in a picture.”

― Julia Stiles

“I find it funny how people from Boston and New York hate each other because of pro teams. But, like, everyone on the Red Sox is a random millionaire athlete from somewhere else.”

― Julian Casablancas

“Red Sox fans have been pushed to the brink over the years, but that’s how faith grows stronger.”

― Julianna Baggott

“No matter what losses happen in a given season, the Red Sox always have next year.”

― Julianna Baggott

“The truth is that for those 86 long years when the Red Sox went without a World Series win, fans were not only in a recession, but trapped in a longstanding, deeply entrenched sports depression.”

― Julianna Baggott

“The red carpet is really the only thing that makes me nervous.”

― Julianna Margulies

“Did you ever notice the color of Mary Poppins’ petticoats? They were kind of orange and apricot and red. I think she had a secret life going on there.”

― Julie Andrews

“I almost choke on my popcorn when I hear film stars, who walk on red carpets as much as the rest of us do on zebra crossings, criticising youngsters who crave fame.”

― Julie Burchill

“I do a chimichurri sauce with garlic, parsley, olive oil, and red and black pepper. You just mince the garlic and the parsley and mix it all together. Brush a little of that on a steak and it kicks it up, like, 10 notches.”

― Julie Gonzalo

“I once wore a pair of bright red sneakers with a grey track pants.”

― Jungkook

“My thing is every generation of Americans has to answer what we call the ‘Superman Question.’ Superman comes, lands in America. He’s illegal. He’s one of these kids. He’s wrapped up in a red bullfighter’s cape. And you’ve got to decide what we’re gonna do with Superman.”

― Junot Diaz

“I don’t want the big flashing lights and red carpet, like, ‘Here comes another Bon Iver album!’ I just want it to be my bedroom-y thing. But that’ll take a while to figure out.”

― Justin Vernon

“The World Cup is a competition in which everything needs to work to your advantage. Players need to be fit, decisions have to go in your favour, and details such as a red card can cost a team dearly.”

“I joined Red Chillies entertainment right after I returned from the London School of Economics in 2007.”

― Kanika Dhillon

“I did not have any Bollywood connection and it was difficult to find a footing in the industry. But I was pleasantly surprised when Red Chillies hired a newcomer like me.”

― Kanika Dhillon

“Give me the flash lights, the red carpets, and all that goes with it. Please! Oh, and I love hoardings. I love them. Nothing makes me happier than my face splashed all over the city.”

“Bling is over. Red carpet covered with rhinestones is out. I call it ‘the new modesty.’”

― Karl Lagerfeld

“I stopped eating carbs and red meat for a month and a half, and I was like, ‘Oh, no, I lost my butt!’ I have to eat potatoes and rice and meat to bulk up. But I do try not to eat too much fast food.”

― Karrueche Tran

“I think a lot of young girls see actresses, and they think of red carpets, and they think of ‘Us Weekly,’ and they don’t really think about the breaking down of a script and what that requires and what you would need to pull it off.”

― Kat Graham

“I tend to be attracted to darker scents. I’m not a floral girl. But I do like this old fragrance I used to wear called Versace Red Jeans. I have an eBay alert that tells me when it comes back! I think it’s more of a nostalgic association that I have with it because a boyfriend had bought it for me when I was, like, 16.”

― Kat Von D

“I didn’t really feel that there were any filler tracks on ‘The Red Shoes,’ but if I were to do that album now, I wouldn’t make it so long.”

― Kate Bush

“Eating-wise, I’m fairly disciplined. I have to be, because if you’re not eating correctly, you’re not giving your body the fuel it needs. So, I stay away from carbs after the morning, and I eat a lot of protein – fish, chicken, and no red meat.”

― Kate Levering

“Then finally I said, ‘Okay, well, I want to know all the details. I want creative input. I want to be consulted. I want to know what they’re doing and who’s involved. And I want to see the space.’ So they took me to see it, and then I realized it was major! All these red flags on the Rue de Rivoli with my name on them right by the Louvre!”

― Kate Moss

“It’s all about the blanket. Blanket, pillow, and red wine. You should always be asleep on a plane.”

― Kate Moss

“I’m happier on the runway than I am on the red carpet. Because then I am not being myself. I think, on the red carpet, it’s a weird, like, ‘Who am I? Am I me? Am I them?’”

― Kate Moss

“Lipstick is iconic. It’s the one product that marks out an era, and a certain lip colour can define a season. It makes me feel more ‘done’. I wear a beige lip in the day, but red when I’m going somewhere – it makes that transition from day to night. I just slick it on; I don’t bother with lipliner.”

― Kate Moss

“People always say you can’t do a red lip if you have red hair but I’ve never shied away from it. I think you can absolutely do that. It’s more about hair colour and complexion.”

― Kate Walsh

“Precise historical reasons are difficult to pinpoint, but red hair, it seems, bestows a sense of otherness. Red is the colour of blood and danger.”

― Kate Williams

“I feel like I’m playing more of a role walking down the red carpet than when I’m playing an ordinary woman covered in sweat.”

― Kate Winslet

“I would literally have to go meet people so they could see I didn’t have big red hair and wear high heels constantly. It was just really ingrained in people.”

― Katey Sagal

“Alice Levine has great unique style and beautiful red hair.”

― Katherine Ryan

“My first car was a Chevy Cavalier. My dad somehow convinced me that it was a hot sports car because it was red.”

― Katheryn Winnick

“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

“We’ve all seen chicken portrayed as the low-fat, heart-healthy alternative to red meat for years, but it no longer adds up. You might want to lean away from eating birds and lean toward more plant-based options of protein like black beans, lentils, tofu, chickpeas and whole grains.”

― Kathy Freston

“I celebrate those who wear their red poppies with pride.”

― Katie Hopkins

“Unfortunately with the media, the red tops, and all the celebrity weekly magazines, the ones who were once loyal – well, when I say loyal, this is a game; this is a game that we’re in. If it’s your time to get picked on, then you get picked on, and, you know, I’m used to that.”

― Katie Price

“I’m really critical of my posture, it makes a big difference. And I try to suck my belly in. Everyone should do that whether you’re on a red carpet or not. Even if you’re just going out to dinner with your boyfriend you should try and suck it in.”

― Katy Perry

“We in Congress need to do everything possible to encourage and cultivate small businesses, so that they can expand and create jobs. Far too often, however, U.S. small businesses are impeded by government paperwork and bureaucratic red tape.”

― Kay Hagan

“I love dressing up, but I do find the red carpet thing quite stressful. When I went to Venice Film Festival last month to promote ‘Wuthering Heights,’ I told my boyfriend beforehand ‘I will be a nightmare, I will cry, I will be nervous.’ Actually once I was there, it was fine.”

― Kaya Scodelario

“Red is one of the strongest colors, it’s blood, it has a power with the eye. That’s why traffic lights are red I guess, and stop signs as well… In fact I use red in all of my paintings.”

― Keith Haring

“Red carpets are pretty unpredictable. You can go from one person asking you what you’re wearing to the next person asking you about the situation in Haiti. It’s the extreme juxtaposition, and some of the questions can throw me!”

― Keith Urban

“I mix my lipsticks a lot. Depending on how I decide to do my eyes, I’ll decide to do my lips. I’ve never really loved wearing only red or purple, and sometimes just pink isn’t enough.”

― Keke Palmer

“I want to open an eye or two about what being an actor is really like because it’s not all red carpets and photo shoots. It’s like trying to get that job and going from job to job.”

― Kenan Thompson

“I love a red lip – red is one of my favorite colors, and I really don’t wear many other lipstick colors than red.”

― Kendall Jenner

“My life was always different growing up. I mean, even before the show, my dad was who he is. He’s an Olympic athlete. And we were going to premieres, like ‘Finding Nemo’ premieres, and we would be little kids, like, before the show, walking down the red carpet.”

― Kendall Jenner

“Pogba’s a massive player. I know him a little bit. He’s unbelievable. He took a red card, and that’s the way it goes: you have injuries and suspensions.”

― Kevin De Bruyne

“Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, and Will Smith are hall-of-famers. When they hit the red carpet, they know exactly what they’re going to do, how they’re going to do it. Damn, they’re good.”

― Kevin Frazier

“There are a lot of things that frustrate me. I get frustrated when I have to wait at a red light.”

“Never wear a red t-shirt to Target. I enjoy helping people, but not every two minutes.”

― Kevin Nealon

“I’m glad I wrote them when I did because I think if I were to write my first novel now, it would be a different book, and it may not be the book that everybody wants to read. But if I were given a red pen now, and I went back… I’d take that thing apart.”

― Khaled Hosseini

“I used to take Sharpies and draw on my pillowcases, and then go to sleep on them and wake up with red marker from the drool all on my face.”

― Kiersey Clemons

“I love taking advantage of red carpets.”

― Kiersey Clemons

“The first thing Fontana did was get me to change my hair colour from light brown to red, and the songwriter Mitch Murray suggested I change my name from Pauline Matthews to Kiki Dee.”

― Kiki Dee

“The Draft Model Police Act of 2006, as part of police reforms, provided for Special Security Zones to be created in the red corridor, which is a common development area. That means bringing together diverse political components but working through a coordinated bureaucracy.”

― Kiran Bedi

“A lot of people think our standard is to be first in the SEC, be first in the country, first in our red zone, and run defense. We really don’t go by that motto. We go by, ‘Be the best Alabama defense there’s been.’”

― Kirby Smart

“It’s weird doing red carpets; it’s uncomfortable. But you can have a sense of humor about it.”

― Kirsten Dunst

― Kobe Bryant

“Interviews are fun, but I get nervous at red carpets.”

― Kodi Smit-McPhee

“There’s a certain visual grammar you’ve got to stick in. For example, if a character has just woken up, draw him in his pajamas with the bed a bit rumpled. Or if he’s ill, draw little bottles with red crosses on that immediately communicate medicine, and a box of tissues.”

― Korky Paul

“Every time I see a cardinal, I know my grandmother is with me. This regal, red bird was Grandma’s favorite.”

― Kris Carr

“Sometimes it would be nice to just have some red wine with dinner, but it’s not worth the risk. I have a great life, a great situation. Why would I want to risk self-destructive behaviour?”

― Kristin Davis

“It’s hard to find that perfect dress that makes you feel like a million bucks. I’ve found a few, and I wish I could wear them over and over and over again on red carpets.”

― Krysten Ritter

“When I don’t feel like getting ready, just a pop of colour on the lips does the trick for me. I have this fond liking for RUBY WOO from Mac. It’s a Matte red colour and makes all the difference.”

― Krystle D’Souza

“My body is damaged from music in two ways. I have a red irritation in my stomach. It’s psychosomatic, caused by all the anger and the screaming. I have scoliosis, where the curvature of your spine is bent, and the weight of my guitar has made it worse. I’m always in pain, and that adds to the anger in our music.”

― Kurt Cobain

“I don’t mind the audience identifying me with Red.”

― Kurtwood Smith

“I’ve stopped racing to get to the red light.”

― Kyle Chandler

“When I’m out and about or walking my dogs, United fans are coming up to me saying, ‘We’d rather City win the league than Liverpool.’ It’s strange to hear, but I can assure you the United players aren’t going to leave a red carpet and say, ‘Go on, City, score past us.’”

― Kyle Walker

“I definitely think prom should feel sophisticated. I’m not really into cutouts and all that. I would go for a more simple look – maybe a dark-colored dress and a red lip and long wavy hair; and for nails, a French tip is always classic and cute!”

― Kylie Jenner

“I feel like I’m way too young to wear such heavy makeup all the time. It’s just bad for your skin, but I’m always doing photo shoots or red carpets and events, so I obviously want to look good.”

― Kylie Jenner

“If I decide to make a coat red in the show, it’s not just red, I think: is it communist red? Is it cherry cordial? Is it ruby red? Or is it apple red? Or the big red balloon red?”

― Lady Gaga

“I lean into all things that are a little off. I will always wear overalls. At this point, I find a way in most of my life to wear a jumpsuit or an overall, anything that’s sort of like an all-in-one situation. I do that on the red carpet a lot.”

― Lake Bell

“There have been times where you do the red carpet in a certain shoe, and you go into the bathroom, you take that shoe off, you put the other shoe on from your purse, and then you walk around for the rest of the night.”

― Lake Bell

“I’ve had bad experiences on red carpets where people didn’t know who I was and were like, ‘Get out of the way!’ It’s so embarrassing to have someone scream at you like you’re not worth anything when you were invited there.”

― Lamorne Morris

“I remember doing the sex scene in Red Rock West. I had to kiss Nic Cage and then look like I was going down on him. And he couldn’t do anything – he just had to lie there.”

― Lara Flynn Boyle

“There’s something rich and nourishing in the mundane – that isn’t sparkly or red carpet.”

― Lara Pulver

“As far as playing, I didn’t care who guarded me – red, yellow, black. I just didn’t want a white guy guarding me, because it’s disrespect to my game.”

― Larry Bird

“To model yourself after Steve Jobs is like, ‘I’d like to paint like Picasso, what should I do? Should I use more red?’”

― Larry Ellison

“Salt Lake City gave me a lot of surprises. How progressive the city actually is, for instance, compared to the rest of Utah – it’s like this purple dot in a sea of red. And the government there is kind of a mix of conservative values and progressive ideas.”

― Larry Wilmore

“I’m lucky because I don’t like being in the sun a whole lot, just because the repercussions for me – I feel it, I go very red.”

― Laura Linney

“At the prom, you are more about boys thinking you’re cute. On the red carpet, you have to please everyone because there are a lot more people looking at those pictures.”

― Laura Marano

“It’s a truism to say that my state, Texas, isn’t a red state: It’s a nonvoting state.”

― Laura Moser

“I envy those who can wear red lipstick or any bold lip colour, really. My top lip just doesn’t seem to take colour – there’s nothing I can do to change that, so I usually just use a nude on the bottom lip.”

― Laura Mvula

“Cyclists need to help themselves and should not jump red lights. I would ride in London, but I certainly wouldn’t ride like that; you just have to be careful. I can understand going down the outside of traffic, but you should obey the rules of the road because we’re all road users.”

― Laura Trott

“I would like to own the Red Sox.”

― Lauren Ambrose

“As a designer, you are flattered to see anyone in one of your designs, whether it’s on a red carpet or passing by you in the market. It’s this wonderful little high every time.”

― Lauren Conrad

“When I was younger, I would set up Grammy parties at my house where I would invite all of my friends over, and my whole family would sit in the living room glued to the TV. But I would just dream of someday going there, and I would watch the red carpet interviews over and over and study what was happening.”

― Lauren Daigle

“Being with Al Gore on the red carpet in Cannes was exciting – he’s like a rock star unto himself!”

― Lawrence Bender

“’Red Dawn’ was really the most fun I ever had making a movie, because I love Westerns, and I love the idea of being a tomboy, and riding horses and shooting guns.”

― Lea Thompson

“’Red Dawn’ was very resonant with a lot of people – they love that movie. I always thought it was a little hysterical.”

― Lea Thompson

“Sometimes I wear red lipstick – it makes me feel sophisticated.”

― Leandra Medine

“When I’m wearing red lipstick, I’ll never do anything with my eyes. And it’s so easy – you just put on red lipstick, and your whole face just seems done.”

― Leandra Medine

“If you don’t have that Singapore core, you can top up the numbers, but you are no longer Singapore. It doesn’t feel Singapore – it isn’t Singapore – and we can issue everybody red passports, but where is the continuity?”

― Lee Hsien Loong

“Certainly I was a very religious child, a deeply weird and very emotional child, an only child with lots of imaginary friends and a very active imagination. I loved Sunday school and Bible camp and all that. I had my own white Bible with Jesus’ words printed in red in the text; I even spoke at youth revivals.”

― Lee Smith

“Writing a film is like building a brick wall. You have a plan, and you have the blocks. Then, somebody says, ‘I think we’ll take this stone out of here and put it over there. And while we’re at it, let’s make this stone red and that stone green.’”

― Leigh Brackett

“I had a bunch of different hair colors. I was experimenting to see what I liked. It started off brown, then I did red, then I got really, really blonde!”

― Leighton Meester

“I mean, look at the people we celebrate – a lot of people who really don’t do anything. They just walk the red carpets and go to all the parties, and they’re hooked up with the right people, so they’re celebrities. But what for?”

― Lenny Kravitz

“The United States, and the president’s made this clear, does not want Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us. And it’s a red line obviously for the Israelis so we share a common goal here.”

― Leon Panetta

“Red lines are kind of political arguments that are used to try to put people in a corner.”

― Leon Panetta

“Week after week, the heads of Red Army Intelligence received updates on the Wehrmacht’s preparations.”

― Leopold Trepper

“I’m the most unromantic lump of Northern suet. Yes, a woman did accost me once in South Shields, but she had a face like Red Rum.”

― Les Dawson

“Well, biology today as I see it has an amiable look – quite different from the 19th-century view that the whole arrangement of nature is hostile, ‘red in tooth and claw.’ That came about because people misread Darwin’s ‘survival of the fittest.’”

― Lewis Thomas

“You always have to have a bit of fun if somebody is dead in a scene. That’s a red rag to a bull for an actor. You do a little poking. You do things to annoy the actor. It’s your job. You have to utilize the opportunity. You have to get through the day.”

― Liam Cunningham

“We used tea towels for gloves until we got proper ones and were always breaking our mum’s ornaments. She’d come home and find us all sat in our boxer shorts, out of breath and our skin red raw. She hated it.”

― Liam Smith

“You know that moment in ‘The Matrix’ when Neo takes the red pill and is plunged into the real world? That’s what it felt like when I first read ‘Watchmen’ – like someone was taking a can opener to my head to make room for Moore’s audacious brilliance.”

― Libba Bray

“I used to watch ‘Last Comic Standing’ with my mom before she passed. So when I got that red envelope, I was extremely emotional.”

― Lil Rel Howery

“I used to have visions of flashing lights and red carpets.”

― Lil Yachty

“When I first put on the red wig and the red dress, I couldn’t believe it was happening. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is the dress everyone knows ‘Annie’ for, and I’m wearing it.’”

― Lilla Crawford

“When I was younger, I definitely did face anti-ginger prejudice. As a child, all teasing hurts, whether it’s because you’re fat or a different race or have red hair. I had enough comments from a couple of people to make it a sore point.”

― Lily Cole

“Every time I have to try on a wig for work, I get excited about the colour; I’ve often thought about going for a platinum bob or also raven black, as it looks so great against pale skin. But I always end up being loyal to my red colour.”

― Lily Cole

“I rarely, rarely – unless it’s a big red carpet – wear all one designer.”

― Lily Collins

“I love putting on a red lip. I don’t do it so much for events – somehow, I don’t seem to get it right – but when I just go to the pub or to a restaurant or something, I just put a red lip on.”

― Lily James

“I love my red hair. It makes me spunkier.”

― Linus Torvalds

“Generally speaking, rural drivers are a much better behaved species than city drivers. I’m not sure whether they’re intrinsically this way, or there are just fewer opportunities for them to do behave badly. You can’t go around running red lights if there aren’t any red lights to run.”

― Linwood Barclay

“Blonde is dumb comedy, red hair is smart, sexy comedy.”

― Lisa Kudrow

“Red lipstick is my armour – I feel it distracts from my hereditary dark circles and gives me an instant psychological lift, no matter what my mood is.”

― Liz Goldwyn

“Red lipstick has been my beauty staple for years. I show up to Pilates or yoga at 8 A.M. wearing my red lipstick.”

― Liz Goldwyn

“Gossip is just news running ahead of itself in a red satin dress.”

― Liz Smith

“Gossip is news running ahead of itself in a red satin dress.”

“Cyclists need to obey the Highway Code, not run red lights, and not ride with iPods on, and motorists need to be more respectful and look out for cyclists.”

― Lizzie Armitstead

“I liked to dye my hair as a teenager. I dyed it a lot of different colours: blue, red, pink.”

― Lorelei Linklater

“I had failed the psychological profiling of a terrorist. The central committee of the Red Brigades had judged me too single-minded and too opinionated to become a good terrorist.”

― Loretta Napoleoni

“I do not support the city’s red light camera system. This system was sold to Chicagoans as a public safety solution, but it’s always really been about revenue, and we’ve seen that fines fall disproportionately on people of color.”

― Lori Lightfoot

“I grew up in a time where on things like ‘The Red Skeleton Show’ or even to a certain extent on ‘The Carol Burnett Show,’ people wrote in the breakouts or ad-libs. They were scripted to look spontaneous. So I always had a dislike of that kind of thing.”

― Lorne Michaels

“I am proud to place Tercio Red River into a conservation easement forever protecting this spectacular landscape with Colorado Open Lands.”

― Louis Bacon

“I wouldn’t go blonde. I’d like to do a darker color – a really dark, dark red.”

― Lourdes Leon

“I dyed my hair this crazy red to bid for attention. It has become a trademark, and I’ve got to keep it this way.”

― Lucille Ball

“For the red carpet, I like a platform heel, but for everyday, it’s mostly Converse high-tops or booties with black tights.”

― Lucy Boynton

“When I was a kid, I got sent off for head-butting a referee: I ran 50m to argue a decision, I was shown a red card, and I head-butted him. I’m really not proud of that.”

― Luis Suarez

“I have significantly cut down on the amount of red meat I eat.”

― Luke Perry

“I never understood who all those people are behind the actors! When you see them on the red carpet on TV, you go, ‘Why does that person need such a large entourage?’ And then you realize that every single person there has a role to play.”

― Lupita Nyong’o

“To this day, I love eating steak tacos before going to the red carpets.”

― Lupita Nyong’o

“Often in red states you find racism, and where you find racism, you also find sexism.”

― Lynda Carter

“Whether we are New Dealer, Old Dealer, Liberty Leaguer or Red, whether we agree or not, we still have the right to think and speak how we feel.”

― Lyndon B. Johnson

“I have always been ‘small town.’ I was born outside of Philadelphia, so we lived on a 20-acre farm and then spent two years in a log cabin on the Appalachian Trail. We lived outside of York in Red Lion, which is an amazing town. It’s perpetually 1982 in that town.”

― Lzzy Hale

“Red Dust was about the late 1980s; it was a time of burgeoning hopes and opening up and people searching for new ways.”

― Ma Jian

“I have never been to Mars. What will we discover when we get there? A red landscape, quiet horizon, frozen glaciers? Probably all is as beautiful, in its own way, as the Earth was thousands of years ago.”

― Ma Yansong

“I used to never wear red.”

― Madelaine Petsch

“I’ve learned not to let anyone affect my thoughts of myself. And I learned to love my red hair – it’s my favorite thing!”

― Madelaine Petsch

“I wish I had gone to Cannes with a film, but I had gone there for L’Oreal Pakistan. I cannot tell you the people that I was around, from Helen Mirren to Jane Fonda. It was a proud moment on the red carpet when they announced my name and said ‘Mahira Khan from Pakistan.’”

― Mahira Khan

“I stress out so much about the red carpet and interviews and pictures, and, you know, not getting my skirt tucked in my knickers.”

― Maisie Williams

“Boys can just wear a suit on the red carpet and that’s fine, but for girls it’s all about the way you look, and there are constant comparisons.”

― Maisie Williams

“In cross-country skiing, athletes propel themselves over distances of ten and twenty miles – a physical challenge that places intense demands on the ability of their red blood cells to deliver oxygen to their muscles.”

― Malcolm Gladwell

“Whatever I feel comfortable in is usually what I’ll wear. I go to different events and premieres and walk the red carpet… those things are awkward enough on their own. You don’t want to be pulling up a top all night. I will sacrifice foot comfort though. I love high heels.”

― Mandy Moore

“I do not like the red carpet; I prefer the green pitch.”

― Manuel Neuer

“I mentor a lot of CEOs and entrepreneurs, and when I see that product is the number-one thing, the only thing that matters, that’s a real red flag.”

― Marc Benioff

“We’re not militant, but there are certain things that are absolutely secret. There was a pilot printed on red paper, and I read everything on my iPad and have a scanner on my desk for these purposes. I scanned in the script, and red paper script scans in perfectly fine.”

― Marc Guggenheim

“When you see a fashion show, you see those seven minutes of what was six months of tedious work of, you know, going up an inch and down an inch, changing it from one shade of red to another shade of red. So it’s the same as any creative process. The result is what we see, but the process is really labor intensive and work.”

― Marc Jacobs

“The red carpet doesn’t interest me. I think people become all the same; it’s like everyone posing from the three-quarter angle in some low-cut, fitted dress; it’s all the same.”

― Marc Jacobs

“I’m useless at staring at a piece of white paper. But if you put a piece of white paper with a black line on it in front of me, I’ll say no that black line should be red and it should go this way or that way.”

― Marc Jacobs

“With the red hair, you get the white skin; it’s a package deal. The cons are that you never look particularly attractive on the beach. The pros are in a softly lit room, you look pretty.”

― Marcia Cross

“Finding creative and effective ways to simultaneously give back and economically empower people is something that is increasingly important. Not everyone can open a business and directly create jobs in the way that we have at Red Rooster Harlem.”

― Marcus Samuelsson

“Without a doubt, first thing we should do is clean up our fiscal house, and that starts with balancing our budgets and digging out of this red ink. We cannot expect to continue in this fashion and remain the leader of the free world.”

― Marcy Kaptur

“Huge open source organizations like Red Hat and Mozilla manage the collaboration of hundreds of people who don’t know one another and have spent no time hanging around the water cooler.”

― Margaret Heffernan

“As a little girl in the ’50s, I couldn’t wear a purple-and-white flowered skirt with a red blouse – those colors were too loud. My parents were not into that ‘We are Negros that wear all beige,’ but there was a line you could walk over that could signal vulgar, crass, rather than clever use of color. And that outfit crossed over the line.”

― Margo Jefferson

“I did go to fashion college, where I was a little punky, a little Bow Wow Wow. I wore red eyeliner. At the time, Vivienne Westwood was really big, so it was a lot of that. London was having a really big moment. I was mixing vintage with things I had made.”

― Maria Cornejo

“I want to be different. If everyone is wearing black, I want to be wearing red.”

― Maria Sharapova

“It’s strange for my friends when they see me on TV and in magazines, because the person that they see doing interviews and pictures on the red carpet is not the person that they know.”

― Maria Sharapova

“When the first American steps on the red dust of Mars, it’s going to be because of computer scientists.”

― Marillyn Hewson

“Designers want me to dress like Spring, in billowing things. I don’t feel like Spring. I feel like a warm red Autumn.”

― Marilyn Monroe

“I feel weird without lipstick. Even after the first time I wore a really neon pink or a really bright red, I felt really strange without it there. My lips are a main feature, so I feel naked without them.”

― Marina and the Diamonds

“We have to review our foreign policy and stop rolling out the red carpet for countries we know to be funding fundamentalism: countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar.”

― Marine Le Pen

“It’s always a weird feeling being on the red carpet, but the more I go, the more I try to connect myself to the here and now. And breathe. That’s the way I make the experience a good one. If I think too much – if my head is somewhere else because I’m stressed out – it shows.”

― Marion Cotillard

“I never look at any pictures of myself on the red carpet. I can’t do that.”

― Marion Cotillard

“I have to have music playing constantly. It creates the tone and mood for anything you are doing. I specifically love rock, and Jimi Hendrix is one of my favorite artists. My favorite song is ‘Red House,’ because it’s heavy on the blues.”

― Marisa Miller

“I was always into fantasy characters, stories of magic, but after Red Sonja, I became obsessed with the persona, the image, of the warrior woman – the sword-wielding, defiant, fearless woman.”

― Marjorie Liu

“I wanted to be her; I wanted to write her. Red Sonja became anchored in my imagination like a mountain.”

― Marjorie Liu

“Wherever I see people doing something the way it’s always been done, the way it’s ‘supposed’ to be done, following the same old trends, well, that’s just a big red flag to me to go look somewhere else.”

― Mark Cuban

“I grew up with low self-esteem. I didn’t think I was very pretty. I had glasses, red hair and was generally quite a spod.”

― Mark Gatiss

“I don’t have anything to prove as a writer anymore. I write about Panera Bread or Red Lobster or Satan or Richard Ramirez or whatever comes to mind. I just write.”

― Mark Kozelek

“Red House Painters were doing cover songs before our first record deal. I remember live shows where we did an AC/DC song; I think we did ‘Send In The Clowns’ by Judy Collins. We did ‘The Star Spangled Banner,’ which came out on our third record.”

― Mark Kozelek

“The thing that you’re faulted on today is not that you are too tough, or not that you aren’t careful. It’s that you might have been too soft. People want that red meat now because you have to keep up with the mood and the mood today is harsh. It really is.”

― Mark Russell

“Red Bull are backing a spinal-injury research charity called Wings For Life, which I am an ambassador for, with a programme called Faces for Charity that will run at this year’s British Grand Prix.”

― Mark Webber

“The first book I remember loving was ‘Grug and the Big Red Apple.’ The first film I saw in the cinema was ‘Grease.’”

― Markus Zusak

“In my class – in all fifth-grade classes – we were required to read ‘classics,’ books like ‘Shiloh,’ which is about a white boy and the dog he rescues. And ‘Old Yeller,’ which is about a white boy and the dog that rescues him. And ‘Where the Red Fern Grows,’ which is about a white boy and the two dogs he trains.”

― Marley Dias

“I got caught stealing when I was a kid from the local bodega right across the street from where we lived. I tried to steal a big bag of Red Hot Dollars. And I swear, I was about 7 years old and the bag was bigger’n me.”

― Marlon Wayans

“Some people like to drive a Ford, not a Ferrari, and some people like to drink out of a red Solo cup, not out of a crystal stem.”

― Marsha Blackburn

“The modern Little Red Riding Hood, reared on singing commercials, has no objection to being eaten by the wolf.”

― Marshall McLuhan

“I like the quiet life sometimes. I also love a bustling press conference sometimes as well. I love a 600 metre red carpet.”

― Martin Freeman

“With a thriller, you’re going to have your red herrings, as different suspects are thrown up as possible culprits. You can only explore that for so long – if you do that more than a few times, it starts to get a little redundant.”

― Martin Henderson

“Where typically the cops are generally the good guys, ‘The Red Road’ blurs the lines intelligently and shows corruption from all sides of the law. It provides unpredictable drama where the audience is kept guessing about how these characters will each choose to act.”

― Martin Henderson

“The writer of ‘The Red Road,’ Aaron Guzikowski, deserves the credit. The fact that the dialogue is so understated is what makes this show so appealing, especially as an actor.”

― Martin Henderson

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.”

― Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I eat foods such as fish, chicken, fruit and vegetables while avoiding red meat, dairy and wheat.”

― Martine McCutcheon

“When I started, you had cochineal food colouring that would turn things pink, but you could never make it red. Now, red is no problem – and if you look at supermarket bakery sections since ‘Bake Off’ began, you can get everything.”

― Mary Berry

“At my dinner parties, I like to serve cheese after the main course because you still have red wine in the glass, and it goes very well with the cheese. And that is what they do in France, and I think they set a good example.”

― Mary Berry

“For my first job interview out of college, I wore a cream-colored cotton suit with cap sleeves and an inverted box pleat skirt that was appropriate for the late-August heat – and wildly discordant with the Red Hook offices of the graffiti magazine I had called twice to find.”

― Mary H.K. Choi

“One of the big things, especially if you’re eating out frequently, is either splitting an entree with someone or ordering a protein-heavy appetizer for an entree, like a salmon or steak tartar. If I’m dying for a burger, I’ll get the burger but have it with salad instead of fries and a glass of red wine instead of a beer.”

― Mary Helen Bowers

“Have something that you enjoy, that satisfies you. For me, that is dark chocolate, red wine, and cheese. But make room in your life for vegetables and whole grains to nourish your body.”

― Mary Helen Bowers

“I have to have lemon and honey. I have to have apple cider vinegar, Braggs. And I have to have either Red Vines or Twizzlers. These things, you know, are the things that help my vocal performance.”

― Mary J. Blige

“Slipcovers are great because they can be laundered after those all-too-frequent sippy cup and red wine incidents.”

― Mary Kay Andrews

“One of the best parts about my job is that I get to dress for red carpets and appearances, and I often forgo working with a stylist because fashion is half the fun of any event!”

― Mary Lambert

“I approached Red Square three times, trying to find somewhere to land, before discovering a wide bridge nearby. I landed there and taxied into Red Square.”

― Mathias Rust

“My plan was to land in Red Square, but there were too many people and I thought I’d cause casualties.”

― Mathias Rust

“Now that I have kids, I’m probably more overprotective than I’ve ever been. My wife’s nickname for me is ‘red alert.’ I sometimes check just to see if the kids are breathing. But I try not to be a helicopter parent.”

― Matt Damon

“Red notification bubbles on any icon, including mail, drive me crazy.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“My collections are full of adaptable pieces: within the energetic lifestyle of L.A., they are able to take you from the beach in Malibu to the red carpet in Hollywood.”

― Matthew Williamson

“When I was 16, the first book I ever actually purchased with my own money, in fact, and had read on my own time was ‘Hunt for Red October’ by Tom Clancy.”

― Max Brooks

“People are essentially red meat. They are.”

― Max Cannon

“I mostly get noticed in shopping malls, airports, red states. The Cheesecake Factory. I am more likely to get stopped in San Antonio or Oakland than in New York or L.A.”

― Max Joseph

“I really want to thank Red Bull Racing and Dr. Helmut Marko for the confidence they have in me.”

― Max Verstappen

“People will send me tweets or texts, ‘Yo, I’m at Red Lobster now and they’re playing Mayer Hawthorne,’ more of that kind of stuff, which is hilarious.”

― Mayer Hawthorne

“Apparently, there’s a little red demon dwarf that haunts the city, and before every major bad thing that’s happened, it’s appeared to somebody. Last time, he appeared in a Cadillac.”

― Meg White

“I don’t really resent being on the red carpet as much as I do having to deal with the paparazzi.”

― Megan Fox

“At the start of each week, I generally cook a box of quinoa, and while it’s simmering, I saute onions, garlic and any veggies I have on hand in a separate pan. I season the vegetables with Spike, a seasoning blend my mom always used when I was growing up, or a little Bragg Liquid Aminos. I always add crushed red pepper and chopped fresh herbs.”

― Meghan Markle

“While my life shifts from refugee camps to red carpets, I choose them both because these worlds can, in fact, coexist. And for me, they must.”

― Meghan Markle

“Being ‘ethnically ambiguous’, as I was pegged in the industry, meant I could audition for virtually any role. Morphing from Latina when I was dressed in red, to African American when in mustard yellow, my closet filled with fashionable frocks to make me look as racially varied as an Eighties Benetton poster.”

― Meghan Markle

“If I have to do a red carpet, and there is a whole team, then it is an hour with the hair and make-up. But if I am just going out with friends, it is 15 minutes max in front of the mirror. A quick five minutes on my face, and I always wear my hair up.”

― Meghan Markle

“In most red states, country music is a major way of life.”

― Meghan McCain

“And I got to know Red Foley well. And I got to know Lefty really well, he was a great guy.”

― Mel Tillis

“I had Cooper in December and was back on the red carpet in January. I picked him up and took him to work with me, you know, took him to my dressing room. So he’s been raised the same way I was, which is that work is such a big part of our lives.”

― Melissa Rivers

“I got so lucky on my ‘Red Widow’ cast. It was just the universe looking out for me that I got those actors. It’s a big ensemble cast, a very international cast. I don’t know how that happened.”

― Melissa Rosenberg

“One girl who stands out was this Miami stripper. She still lives with her mother and father, and they know she strips. They call her by her stripper name, Freaky Red.”

― Michael Cimino

“As far as characters in fiction that I really admire – it’s pretty strong to say you would wish that you had created another character – but I’ll throw out Will Graham, the protagonist in ‘Red Dragon,’ a book I’ve read several times.”

― Michael Connelly

“When I have political discussions with my friends, I piss them off because my personal position is that there’s no difference between the parties. It’s the Red Sox and the Mets.”

― Michael Crichton

“My personal view is that Iran, left to its own devices, will get itself to that step right below a nuclear weapon, that permanent breakout stage, so the needle isn’t quite in the red for the international community. And, frankly, that will be as destabilizing as their actually having a weapon.”

― Michael Hayden

“When the intelligence is making a policymaker too happy, he ought to challenge it, and even if he doesn’t, the intelligence briefer needs to launch a red team against his own conclusions to see if he can hold his ground.”

― Michael Hayden

“Well, it is true that they did – the Pentagon did impose rules for governing the handling of the Koran in January of 2003, after there had been complaints about the handling of the Koran from detainees, from the International Red Cross.”

― Michael Isikoff

“If you had to point to one thing that made it less likely that the Red Sox would win the World Series, I would say it was those people that go to Fenway Park to watch the games. And then the media around it.”

― Michael Lewis

“The Red Sox are the local scapegoats. It’s hard enough to play baseball without being the local scapegoat too.”

― Michael Lewis

“The Red Sox are a curious thing because so much here is media driven. You can’t go fire half your scouts here because they are all friends with the local reporters. Your life is going to hell in the papers.”

― Michael Lewis

“Pat Simmons and I always had a great blend together. We did the background vocals on a Little Feat track called ‘Red Streamliner,’ and that was great fun. I always really loved the way it turned out.”

― Michael McDonald

“I did not like ‘The Hurt Locker.’ It’s a lazy way to make a movie, frankly. I could put you on the edge of your seat quite easily, and have you feel the tension for 2 hours, if every other scene practically is, ‘Should we cut the red wire or the green wire?’”

― Michael Moore

“When you are part of a community for 14 years, it inevitably shapes you. I will always have a part of Ferrari beside me; a part of my heart will always be red.”

― Michael Schumacher

“I’ve always been the locker-room jokester, the fun guy, the guy who keeps it loose and easy. But also, on Sundays, the guy in that huddle jumping up and down, telling guys, ‘Hey, get it going. Let’s go.’ Firing everybody up. So I’m part relaxation therapist and part Red Bull.”

― Michael Strahan

“The night before, I’ll lay out the makeup I want to put on: a brow filler, a lipstick – there’s a NYX red one that looks great with those Team USA uniforms – and my lashes.”

― Michelle Carter

“This is the thing I’ve learned, after a lot of couch time: There are always red flags. You need to look for those red flags along the way so you don’t continue to make the same mistakes with another person.”

― Michelle Pfeiffer

“I’m hugely proud to be able to work with Ferrari – such a great team and huge amount of history, especially combined with my dad. I’m really proud to be able to be part of it. All our hearts are very red.”

“What I would like to do… once I take care of all my kids’ student loans, is buy a red 1965 Mustang and fully restore it.”

“I have never been reimbursed at the federal level. Never want to be in a million years. To me, it’s just not worth the red flag.”

― Mike Quigley

“I’ve got one of those over-stuffed leather chairs from the Pottery Barn. It faces north. I live in San Francisco, so there’s the Golden Gate Bridge off to the left, and there’s Alcatraz off to the right, and I’ve got a pile of pulp fiction next to me, and there’s usually a decent bottle of red wine next to the fireplace.”

― Mike Rowe

“I know at one point I had bright red hair and I had bracelets from my wrist up to my elbow and I was wearing size 50 pants. I wouldn’t wear that today, but I’m not embarrassed about wearing it back then any more.”

― Mike Shinoda

“That is why I strongly believe we should working in Congress to make America a better place to run a business by reducing the costly burdens of bureaucracy and red tape.”

― Mike Simpson

“A Red camera is the best. When I started shooting videos, I had to pay ten thousand dollars just to rent one. I was like, ‘I do all these music videos, and I still don’t own a Red camera?’ So I spent about a hundred thousand dollars to buy one. My own bread. Boom!”

― Mike Will Made It

“When I originally auditioned for ‘Hereditary,’ I didn’t think I’d get it because everyone there was, like, three years younger than me and had red hair – it was a very odd thing. When I ended up getting it, I was really excited because it was on my bucket list to be in a horror film.”

― Milly Shapiro

“I remember in 1968 when we were in Cannes, in the festival, and we were supposed to be there 10 days, and the second day the festival collapsed because the French, you know, film-makers raised the red flag in the festival and ended the festival.”

― Mireille Mathieu

“If I could go into a time machine and be in my 20s again and do ‘Flora the Red Menace,’ I would. That was always the one. I mean, have they done that? I don’t think so. No one’s done that show. That was sort of a dream role of mine.”

― Miriam Shor

“The thing about living in Los Angeles and doing a lot of movies is that you get to go to a lot of premieres, and, regardless of whether or not you’re a celebrity, you still get to walk down the red carpet and then have everyone sort of screaming your name. The pictures never get printed anywhere, but they are nonetheless taking your picture.”

― Missi Pyle

“We don’t have a prayer of defeating the Red Threat of our generation without a long boom of almost unprecedented duration.”

― Mitch Daniels

“I refer, of course, to the debts our nation has amassed for itself over decades of indulgence. It is the new Red Menace, this time consisting of ink. We can debate its origins endlessly and search for villains on ideological grounds, but the reality is pure arithmetic.”

― Mitch Daniels

“My red line is Iran may not have a nuclear weapon. It is inappropriate for them to have the capacity to terrorize the world. Iran with a nuclear weapon or with fissile material that can be given to Hezbollah or Hamas or others has the potential of not just destabilizing the Middle East.”

“I believe that time destroys everything. You can take one beautiful apple, red. After a while, it becomes shrivelled and full of worms, just like what happens to us.”

― Monica Bellucci

“If you believe what you are on the red carpet, then you would have to go see a doctor, and there are so many actors like that. You have to know very well this is a moment of glamour, and when I go back home, I don’t have the airbrush, and I have dark circles because I don’t have the make-up on.”

― Monica Bellucci

― Murray Rothbard

“I like the colour red; it suits me!”

― Naby Keita

“I always liked red. It’s a picker-upper.”

“On set is where I feel comfortable. The red carpet stuff, talking about the film, explaining your own life, it doesn’t come naturally. It’s all necessary stuff I suppose but it’s not my strength.”

― Naomi Watts

“Red Carpet has a nice package abstraction layer that allows us to support RPMs and DEBs transparently.”

― Nat Friedman

“Red Carpet Enterprise has been really well received since one guy can install it in about an hour, and it makes it trivial to deal with software management issues like deploying updates and creating standard package sets for your various machines.”

― Nat Friedman

“I get accused of having a haughty smugness. I have a lopsided mouth. I can’t help it. I was born with it. It looks as if I am smirking. I have had my publicist tell me, ‘Don’t do that smile on the red carpet.’ I’m, like, ‘That’s my smile.’”

― Nathan Myhrvold

“We’ll take the cake with the red cherry on top.”

― Navjot Singh Sidhu

“My initial attraction to ‘Red Tails’ was the opportunity to play a character that was not me. ‘Stomp the Yard’ was a great film, but I played myself there.”

― Ne-Yo

“When ‘Red Tails’ came along, all I knew was that they were the first African-American fighter pilots in the U.S. Air Force. I had no idea how deep the story went or about all their amazing achievements. There were a few Tuskegee Airmen on the set to make sure everything was as authentic as possible.”

― Ne-Yo

“People abusing their power makes me see red.”

― Neil Jackson

“The Red Arrows are the acrobatic division of the Royal Air Force in England.”

― Neville

“I remember, as a kid, we would go and watch the Red Arrows, and I thought it was similar to British wrestlers and the acrobatic division.”

― Neville

“I took a gap year myself after high school and worked on a farm near Lyon, France. I stayed with the Vallet family, picked and packed fruit, and discovered that red wine can be a breakfast drink. That led to further travel as a university student.”

― Nick Clegg

“If you’re a single Sheila and you’re trying to find an Australian bloke, you duck off down there to Australia. You go to the Red Centre: you’ll find there’s a few shearers, a few stockmen, and there you will find an Australian bloke.”

― Nick Cummins

“A teacher asked me if I’d audition for a play, and I ended up playing the pirate Red Dog in a production of ‘Treasure Island.’ And that’s where it started, and I really felt part of something special, but I still didn’t think about it as something I wanted to do. I was just having fun.”

― Nick Gehlfuss

“I’m not invited. I’m not on the A list, haven’t been on it in 20 years and my feet have never trod its red fluffy carpets.”

― Nick Mancuso

“I was inspired by how Red Bull isn’t about the drink; it isn’t about the product or the can. Red Bull is a platform to celebrate all that humans are capable of accomplishing. They built a lifestyle movement, a brand that sold this product.”

― Nick Woodman

“If I walk up to a can of Red Bull, I’m thinking about Formula One; I’m thinking about incredible athletic performances. And it helps me choose that can over something else to either side of it.”

― Nick Woodman

“I still drink a couple of Red Bulls every day.”

― Nick Woodman

“Boxing is like chess. You encourage your opponent to make mistakes so you can capitalise on it. People think you get in the ring and see the red mist, but it’s not about aggression. Avoiding getting knocked out is tactical.”

― Nicola Adams

“I was on a tour of a Restoration comedy in 1996, and in Moscow we stayed at the Metropole hotel, off Red Square. The food there was opulent, but in the Maly theatre canteen, there were just a few pieces of rye bread, peanuts, and gherkins. I stood in the queue and burst into tears.”

― Nicola Walker

“Red Lobster reminds me of my dad because he would always get coupons and be like, ‘We’re going to treat ourselves.’”

“Since I have fair skin, I have to stay out of the sun. I can’t stand the sun. I dyed my hair red for a while during the 1990s but I’m actually a natural blonde.”

― Nicole Kidman

“It’s about businesses nervous about taking on school leavers because of a mass of red tape. It’s about health and safety regulations and green fines.”

― Nigel Farage

“I’m really excited to get my Herve Leger, my Louboutins, and to be rocking the red carpet. I don’t know if Hollywood can handle it, but I’m ready to bring it.”

― Nikki Bella

“I like my squishy, red, high-heeled Vivienne Westwood jelly shoes. They make you seem like you’re much more of a go-er.”

― Nina Conti

“Cole Haan is like high fashion Nike, so you feel like you’re wearing Nike shoes, but you’re wearing heels. Every time I’m on a red carpet, I always either wear Cole Haan or Stuart Weitzman. You end up having to walk around all night in these heels and you want to be comfortable and not look like you’re in pain. It definitely shows in pictures.”

― Nina Dobrev

“I have an amazing partnership with Red Bull.”

― Ninja

“I would love to help the textile sector, but at the same time, a big red flag is held by the automotive parts and automotive sector. They don’t want to open up to the European Union.”

― Nirmala Sitharaman

“I was late to the Knicks. My dad was a big fan. But I first started watching baseball; I became a Red Sox fan. My dad was a Mets fan. I wanted to have my own team and league.”

― Noah Baumbach

“When I was a lot younger, I did some work with St. Jude’s, but then we went on a ‘Red Band’ tour across the United States, and we went to a bunch of hospitals and had the privilege of meeting kids who are suffering or going through these different situations.”

― Nolan Sotillo

“Going into hospitals and being able to meet kids that are in similar situations to those that the characters are facing in the ‘Red Band Society’ allows us to see the truth of these real humans’ lives.”

― Nolan Sotillo

“You should be watching ‘Red Band Society’ because it’s a show that inspires us to live. I feel like you’ll get connected to these characters, and they teach you something that you can apply to your daily life.”

― Nolan Sotillo

“I would watch ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ and borrow a few lines here and there from guests like Red Buttons and Buddy Hackett to create a routine. Then I started getting invited to do political functions like the governor’s birthday ball or mayor’s dinner.”

― Norm Crosby

“In the years of the Red Terror that followed the Bolshevik Revolution, the voice of dissent was stifled by universal denunciations, house searches, and preventive arrests.”

― Norman Davies

“As for the first guitar I actually bought, I believe it was a Cherry Red Kramer! I think I bought it because Eddie Van Halen played Kramer, and I remember it had a Rockinger tremolo on it.”

― Nuno Bettencourt

“I went to the premier of ‘Stardust,’ which starred Michelle Pfeiffer. I nearly died when I saw her on the red carpet – she’s so beautiful.”

― Oliver Jackson-Cohen

“’Red Knot’ is a film that I shot in Antarctica almost three years ago on a boat. It was a film that was improvised and it had very interesting circumstances while making the film, obviously. We were on a small boat bobbing around in Antarctica. It was a really remarkable experience.”

― Olivia Thirlby

“My boyfriend and I just got a projector, so we’ve been screening movies on the roof and projecting them against the wall next door. The last one we did, the theme was, ‘The Russians are coming.’ So we screened ‘Red Dawn’ and ‘Top Gun.’”

― Olivia Thirlby

“One difficulty in making the Senate work the way it was intended is that America’s electorate is increasingly divided into red and blue states, with lawmakers representing just one color or the other.”

― Olympia Snowe

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

― Oren Etzioni

“I wrote ‘My Name is Red’ just to remember painting, where the hand does it before the intellect. When I’m captive to it, I’m a happier person. Kierkegaard tells us that a happy person is someone who lives in the present; the unhappy person, someone who lives either in the past or the future.”

― Orhan Pamuk

“’Snow’ is my most popular book in the United States. But in Turkey, it was not as popular as ‘My Name is Red,’ or even ‘The Museum of Innocence,’ because the secular leaders didn’t want this bourgeois Orhan trying to understand these head-scarf girls.”

― Orhan Pamuk

“When I write, I feel that I’m writing with my intellect. When I paint, I think it’s some other force making me paint. I – as I wrote in my novel ‘My Name is Red’ – watch with amazement what my hand is doing on the paper, what kind of line, what kind of strange, beautiful thing it’s doing in spite of my will, so to speak.”

― Orhan Pamuk

“Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m schizophrenic, and so am I.”

― Oscar Levant

“Green, red, and mixed shades of haemins are known. If magnesium is replaced by iron in chlorophyll, green haemins are obtained. Their colour is due to a strong band in the red which is already recognized in chlorophyll.”

― Otto Heinrich Warburg

“I went to public schools in Bangor, Maine, and had as normal a childhood as you could imagine someone could, living in an enormous red house and being the son of a millionaire best-selling writer. I mean, I actually had a strangely normal childhood despite all that.”

― Owen King

“I like ‘Reanimator,’ and I like ‘Evil Dead 2.’ But I really like the Corman movies from the late ’60s and early ’70s, and my favorite is ‘The Mask of Red Death’ with Vincent Price because – spoiler alert – but at the end of the movie, Vincent Price, he’s the evil prince, and to kill him, his court just, like, dances at him.”

― Owen King

“I lived in Red Hook, Brooklyn, for about 10 years, and then we moved out to Jersey City after my wife and I bought a house up in the Catskills. I miss Brooklyn, but the commute to the Catskills is about 45 minutes shorter.”

“I’ve always believed human blood is red because it really needs to draw attention to itself.”

― Patricia Cornwell

“The closely divided presidential election of 2000 – in which George W. Bush defeated Al Gore by the slimmest of margins in Florida – forever implanted the divide between red states and blue states in our political consciousness.”

― Patrick Murphy

“Red Interactive, the digital advertising agency, is a real, systemic kind of business, as opposed to a one-off thing. We can help advertisers frustrated by old media find clients they can work with.”

― Patrick Whitesell

“I did feel funny about being fair and having red hair and freckles. I did not like that because I grew up in a neighbourhood where no one had red hair. I felt very conspicuous but not in a nice way.”

― Patti Scialfa

“Even as a child, I knew what I didn’t want. I didn’t want to wear red lipstick.”

― Patti Smith

“I partnered with Headstrong because they give free and fast mental health support to our veterans who are most at risk. There is no red tape, and they get help within a day or two instead of weeks.”

― Patty Smyth

“Most of us know nothing about constitutional law, so it’s hardly surprising that we take sides in the Obamacare debate the way we root for the Red Sox or the Yankees. Loyalty to the team is what matters.”

― Paul Bloom

“You just have to be classy at the end of the day. That doesn’t mean you can’t go with a midnight blue tux. And if you can find a deep red tux that looks classy and classic, I think you can pull it off.”

― Paul Feig

“The only way that we can disincentivize Central American immigrants from illegally entering our country is if we change our policies, tweak our laws, cut the bureaucratic red tape and immediately send them back to their countries of origin. Until then, this self-imposed crisis will continue to worsen.”

― Paul Newman

“The first record I bought was actually Booker T and the MG’s ‘Red Beans and Rice.’”

“Pirlo is a cool customer who does things in his own time. On the pitch, he just looks so relaxed, no matter what is going on around him. He is one of those greats who looks like he could run a midfield with a glass of red wine in one hand.”

― Paul Scholes

“I actually met Deadmau5 for the first time on the red carpet in Hollywood for the Grammys. I was there with my daughter, and he introduced himself to me. He said, ‘Hey, I’m from Toronto.’ I had a little conversation with him, and then I realized I’m talking to a guy with a giant mouse head.”

― Paul Shaffer

“I found that when I went from Albany to Savannah, that I needed to put that white rice away, and I needed to turn that into Savannah red rice because they were big into that sausage, tomato-y, bell pepper-y rice mixture.”

― Paula Deen

“On the street, I get either ‘Are you the Red Viper?’ or ‘Are you Javier Pena?’”

― Pedro Pascal

“In about 2002, I moved from Manhattan to Brooklyn, to Red Hook.”

― Pedro Pascal

“The Red Viper enjoys life. He does not discriminate in his pleasures. This is the way he understands life, to live it to its fullest. And to limit yourself in terms of experience doesn’t make any sense to him – what’s beautiful is beautiful.”

― Pedro Pascal

“I am here to change anything. I’m here to adapt. The critieria between a yellow and red card. What is a foul and what is not.”

― Pep Guardiola

“I consider Liverpool my home, and it will always be like that. It’s what they say: once a Red, always a Red.”

“I’ve turned my back on fancy parties and red carpets. I’m a writer, and if I did that, I’d never get anything done.”

“The risks of piracy spreading beyond the Red Sea and Indian Ocean, off the Somali coast, and in the Straits of Malacca and Singapore and beyond are substantial.”

― Peter Middlebrook

“For DC, I’m working on the new ‘Red Lanterns’ and ‘JLA Dark.’ Both of these are very different books, which is great for me. I’ve heard ‘JLA Dark’ described as a team of people with supernatural powers – but that’s only half the story.”

― Peter Milligan

“’Red Lanterns’ is obviously about rage, but more it’s about how rage affects people – alien and human. I’ll be getting into the characters of some of those insane Red Lanterns whom we’ve generally only seen spitting vomit in the background.”

― Peter Milligan

“I grew up in New Bedford, Massachusetts, and I’m a huge Red Sox fan. I’ve probably been to Fenway 40 times. I’ve been pretty lucky as a sports fan because the Patriots have won Super Bowls and the Red Sox have won World Series during my lifetime.”

― Peter Uihlein

“Sometimes, when I’m on the red carpet or something, and there was a lot of flashes, my eyes, like, start watering. I’m like, ‘Oh.’ You have to hide it, so I just keep going, and then I’m like, ‘Oh gosh, it hurts so bad.’”

“I really like a red lip as my go-to when I go out.”

― Priyamvada Natarajan

“It’s a standard staple in Japanese cinema to cut somebody’s arm off and have red water hoses for veins, spraying blood everywhere.”

“The thing about organic farming is that the produce will not look the same. Your tomato will not resemble the rich red one from the textbook, and that’s the beauty of it.”

“It’s so fun for kids to dye eggs. But on Holy Thursday, we make a special batch of dyed eggs. Instead of pastel, the eggs we dye on Holy Thursday are dyed only red to symbolize the blood of Jesus.”

― Rachel Campos-Duffy

“I’m sick of having red hair, but people seem to like that aesthetic.”

― Rachel Hurd-Wood

“I will openly admit that I’ve never really followed hockey. Given my New England upbringing, I have always adhered to the Celtics, Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins mantra of professional sports fandom, but hockey was definitely the lowest sport on the totem pole – even when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup.”

― Rachel Nichols

“This is a polarizing statement, as I have come to discover, but I am a Pats, Red Sox, Celtics and Bruins fan from birth until death.”

― Rachel Nichols

“Before joining the industry, my impression of Kannada films was red and yellow outfits, hilarious sets, and dance movements. But I’m glad I’m wrong.”

― Radhika Pandit

“I want to get away from couture just being done for a picture or for a single moment on the red carpet. I want to try and convince women that couture can be worn in the day and that there’s a reality and relevance there, because that’s what Mr. Christian Dior wanted.”

― Raf Simons

“As policymakers, we need to foster an environment that allows U.S.-based innovators and entrepreneurs to compete and to flourish. Excessive regulations and bureaucratic red tape dramatically increase the cost of doing business and create uncertainty for companies.”

“Orange juice from concentrate is labeled. Food coloring Red #5 is labeled. Fish are labeled as to whether they’ve been previously frozen. To a consumer, there’s no plausible reason why these factors should be on a food ingredient label while the presence of GMOs shouldn’t be.”

― Ramez Naam

“If you want to understand Jesus, you have to study the whole Bible. Christian duty is not defined solely by the words in red.”

― Randall Terry

“You don’t need a uniform color: We used a mixture of brick red, browns and grays, and then threw in seashells, branches and various types of rock, so our walls ended up looking like cave paintings!”

― Randy Bachman

“Red has always been my color, because red stands out.”

― Ravyn Lenae

“’Sticky’ is about reaching a point in a relationship where you both realize you guys shouldn’t be dating, but you’re doing it anyway just because you like to have that sense of just being able to be honest with the person and comfortable with the person. You kind of ignore all of the signs and red flags because you really want to like the person.”

― Ravyn Lenae

“I always like story songs, Dolly Parton, Tom T. Hall, Mel Tillis, Red Stegall, when they’d do their story songs. I was totally enthralled.”

― Reba McEntire

“I’m not Irish. Just because I have red hair doesn’t mean I’m a lucky charm, you know?”

― Rebecca Mader

“I loved reading all kinds of books, but I particularly loved books like ‘Red Planet’ by Robert Heinlein, which very few people read anymore but is a wonderful science fiction story.”

― Rebecca Stead

― Reed Morano

“Your wedding is your red carpet moment, and while brides definitely can take some chances with style, you don’t want to look like a fad.”

― Reem Acra

“People are looking more and more to Hollywood for fashion trends: who got dressed in what, and what was on the red carpet. Hollywood is becoming a big advertisement.”

― Reem Acra

“According to research,when given a choice, babies choose gold. It’s my favourite colour after black and red.”

― Rei Kawakubo

“Learning operatic roles is ongoing, and I find that I can learn on the train or subway, during a manicure, getting my hair done, and even while driving if I only look at the score at red lights.”

― Renee Fleming

“I personally wear a lot of earth tones – does that make me boring? I don’t know. I do like a pop of color, like red shoes or a bright orange jacket.”

― Richard Farnsworth

“Despite the debt, the traffic, the one-party rule, the taxes, and the eagerness of politicians to overwhelm small businesses and large corporate job producers with red tape and unnecessary regulations, the Golden State is still the most beautiful place to live and work in the United States.”

― Richard Grenell

“My first car was a 1976 Toyota Corolla Liftback in red, like the one in ‘The Blues Brothers.’ I painted a Union Jack on the roof. I was absolutely in love with it until I destroyed it, which broke my heart!”

― Richard Hammond

“Portugal is a high hill with a white watch tower on it flying signal flags. It is apparently inhabited by one man who lives in a long row of yellow houses with red roofs, and populated by sheep who do grand acts of balancing on the side of the hill.”

― Richard Harding Davis

“I hate all the red carpet stuff. It’s weird, because it’s part of what’s expected of you now.”

― Richard Madden

“Difficult choices, unlike red wine, rarely improve with age.”

― Richard N. Haass

“If you look at Middle America and the reason why it’s so red is because the Democratic Party cannot relate to them. They definitely have not done anything to support people from where I come from in West Virginia.”

― Richard Ojeda

“My state was blue through and through. The reason why my state went red is because my state is a hard labor state, and the Democratic party pulled pitch and ran away from this place and left our people to fend for themselves with nothing.”

― Richard Ojeda

“The seeds of a redwood are released from cones that are about the size of olives. The heartwood of the tree is a dark, shimmery red in color, like old claret. The wood has a lemony scent and is extremely resistant to rot.”

― Richard Preston

“The part I hate is when we go out to eat. My youngest son, who’s 11, doesn’t like to eat in more fancy restaurants, so we often go out to places like Red Robin and such. Well, as you can imagine, in that kind of place I probably have to jump up about 10 times during a meal to take a picture with somebody or sign an autograph.”

― Rick Harrison

“Lynyrd Skynyrd is not a political band, but you know what? We believe in this country. We have a soft spot for our military. We love the red, white and blue, and every night we dedicate a portion of our show to our fighting men.”

― Rickey Medlocke

“Of course I treat myself every now and then. Once a month I might have pizza and red wine and maybe a dessert, but that’s it.”

― Ricki-Lee Coulter

“On the red carpet, I need to be protected. When I wear a Chanel dress, I feel like I’ve earned the right to be there. And Karl Lagerfeld is so poetic, such an intelligent man. I like the way he has the power to draw attention.”

― Rinko Kikuchi

“Red Skelton… I broke into tears when I met him.”

― Rip Taylor

“I have so far enjoyed my preparation with red ball cricket. The Duke ball swings a lot when you’re here in England, and initially, when I started playing here with India A, I realized that the swing will come a lot into play in these conditions.”

― Rishabh Pant

“In red ball cricket, with the field placements, you can look around, take your time, because you have five days to play, whereas in limited overs cricket, you have limited number of balls to play and score.”

― Rishabh Pant

“I will always love red lips.”

― Rita Ora

“I walked into this industry blond with red lips, and I will leave this industry blond with red lips. Mark my words.”

― Rita Ora

“I love getting dressed up and glamorous for the red carpet. It makes me feel powerful and sexy!”

― Rita Ora

“I don’t feel like myself without the red lip. I feel like I’m taking a risk or something without it.”

― Rita Ora

“Seeing Taylor Swift live in 2013 is seeing a maestro at the top of her or anyone’s game. No other pop auteur can touch her right now for emotional excess or musical reach – her punk is so punk, her disco is so disco. The red sequins on her guitar match the ones on her microphone, her shoes and 80 percent of the crowd.”

― Rob Sheffield

“One in 5 Americans is touched by the Red Cross every single year.”

― Robert Brady

“When you see Robert Englund in a movie, you think he is the bad guy, but if I’m not the bad guy, and I’m supposed to just kind of fool the audience, it makes it a lot easier for whichever actor is the bad guy. So I find myself doing a lot of those, I think they’re called red herring characters, faking out the audience.”

― Robert Englund

“What really matters is that ‘Black Swan’ deploys and exaggerates all the cliches of earlier ballet movies, especially ‘The Red Shoes,’ another tale of a ballerina driven mad and suicidal.”

― Robert Gottlieb

“Paul Taylor’s ‘Offenbach Overtures’ has lots of zip and charm, and its pair of dueling soldiers in red, who end up starry-eyed about each other while their disgusted seconds take up the quarrel, is nonstop funny.”

― Robert Gottlieb

“I’m a little disappointed in what’s happened. I’m beginning to lose faith in Obama. This Syria thing is ridiculous. He should not be drawing red lines.”

― Robert Indiana

“If I hold up a red square for 30 seconds and take it away, you will see a perfect green square. It’s how the eye works. So if you want to paint a really good red painting, you have to strategically place in some green, so the eye is brought back.”

― Robert Irwin

“The thing about a plant is, let’s say it will have 50 or 100 little points of bright red. If you look at the thing as it goes down, it becomes green in a way… It is way more spectacular than pointillist paintings where these things are played with, but never to the level of what happens in nature.”

― Robert Irwin

“So someday in the near future hopefully rather than having a foot or a leg amputated we’ll just give you an injection of the cells and restore the blood flow. We’ve also created entire tubes of red blood cells from scratch in the laboratory. So there are a lot of exciting things in the pipeline.”

― Robert Lanza

“Trevisan is one of the few Paso Robles producers to recognize the potential of the region’s old-vine Zinfandel, which he blends with Syrah and Mourvedre and labels with fanciful names such as Problem Child, the Outsider and Cherry Red.”

― Robert M. Parker, Jr.

“I think the Japanese love young, tannic red wines much more than most Americans do. Perhaps it is because Asians have a great fondness for tea, and tea is a very tannic beverage. Therefore a young, tannic red wine is something familiar to an Asian palate.”

― Robert M. Parker, Jr.

“If you want to slice into America, it’s pretty red, white, and blue in terms of how it goes about things, but there’s a gray area there, and I’ve always been interested in where things are complicated.”

― Robert Redford

“Legitimate revolution must be led by, made by those who have been most oppressed: black, brown, yellow, red, and white women-with men relating to that the best they can.”

― Robin Morgan

“Every now and again I just really have to have that steak or lamb chop. But yeah, B.C. – before cancer – I would eat red meat probably three or four times a week, easily. I am convinced that the amount of red meat I contributed to it.”

― Robin Roberts

“Tweets? That stuff kills conversation. And people taking pictures with their phone or recording you, sometimes surreptitiously, is creepy. They come up and just start talking to you, and you can see the red light on their phone.”

― Robin Williams

“If you get enough sleep, cut back on cigarettes and red meat, you look better the next day.”

― Robin Wright

“It’s just never been in my nature to go out there and go on a red carpet to say, ‘Oh, publicize me!’”

― Robin Wright

“As far as Cheap Trick albums, I like the Red Ant record, which is just called ‘Cheap Trick,’ from 1997; that’s my second-favorite album.”

“My favorite bands are the Allman Brothers and Red Hot Chili Peppers.”

― Ron White

“In the middle of ‘Bleed Red’ coming out, a huge disproportionate majority of people in radio came to us and asked if they could have ‘Cost of Livin’ as a single. There was even talk behind closed doors about pulling ‘Bleed Red’ because they had caught wind and heard ‘Cost of Livin’.’ We went with that.”

― Ronnie Dunn

“I much prefer playing the bad guys. I think they are always the most interesting characters. I liken it to painting: if you’re playing the good guy, you get three colors: red, white and blue. But if you’re the bad guy, you get the whole palette.”

― Ronny Cox

“Zumba is so energising and refreshing. It’s totally fun. My face turns red at the end of the session, and I feel like I am ready to take over the world.”

― Roop Durgapal

“You always try to play it off cool, but even if I think I have a certain laidback body language when I’m meeting someone who I greatly admire, I still have this horrible tendency to go bright red.”

― Rose Leslie

“I came out of the womb waving red lipstick.”

― Rose McGowan

“I can wear a sexy dress to any red carpet event. My wedding is my chance to go all the way and wear a princess silhouette.”

― Roselyn Sanchez

“If the powers that be really knew how much time I spent thinking about and researching celebrities, they probably wouldn’t let me anywhere near the red carpet. But, please promise not to tell them. I’m harmless, I swear.”

― Ross Mathews

“The First Amendment rejects red tape, cover-up and double-speak.”

― Roy Barnes

“I feel like my style is very much androgynous. It’s rock, chic, like casual wear, but then on the flip side to that, being that it’s so androgynous, it’ll either be skinny jeans and a leather jacket, or if I’m doing a red carpet or event, I’ll completely flip that and be wearing a suit or a dress.”

― Ruby Rose

“It sounds cliche, but I’m mostly androgynous in what I wear. I’ll wear a lot of tomboy clothes but still dress glam if I have a red carpet event. It’s a bit of a mix, but mostly androgynous.”

― Ruby Rose

“Ron was always my favorite character, because I feel like I relate to him, like we’ve both got red hair, we both like sweets, we’ve both got lots of brothers and sisters.”

― Rupert Grint

“Romantically, in my head, I’m Rambo, but if someone’s shouting at me, I get adrenalin shakes and go red. When I’m really low, I have a good cry.”

― Russell Tovey

“To be efficient with the football in practice and on the game field obviously is the most important thing, but be efficient with the football, make smart decisions, be great on third downs, be great in the red zone, when the game’s on the line in the fourth quarter – that’s what I love.”

― Russell Wilson

“I live in trainers and baggy clothes, but on the red carpet, I either go for something very pretty from Temperley London or a structured Roland Mouret dress.”

― Ruth Bradley

“I always wanted to entertain. When I was six, a scrawny, scrawny kid, I’d get in my red speedo and do muscle moves. I actually thought I was muscular. I didn’t know everyone was laughing at me.”

― Ryan Gosling

“I haven’t experienced anything paranormal yet, but I did see what I think was a meteor light up the sky in a flash of red for a few seconds. That was really cool.”

― Ryan Lee

“If this validates anything, it’s that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera.”

― Ryne Sandberg

“I don’t expect any red carpet to the big leagues. If the opportunity comes, then it comes. But I don’t think I’m owed anything.”

― Ryne Sandberg

“I stopped with the red meat, let go of turkey and chicken, and then I held onto fish. When we finished ‘Wu-Tang Forever,’ I felt like I evolved and completely dived into veganism.”

― Rza

“I’ve been compared to a lot of redheads. Here’s the thing though: you can look nothing like somebody, but if you both have red hair, all of a sudden people think you look exactly the same.”

― Sadie Sink

“I have, like, a playlist with all my favourite songs on it. Sadie’s Playlist is the soundtrack of my life. ‘Wonderwall’ by Oasis, ‘Under The Bridge’ by Red Hot Chili Peppers, TLC, ‘Waterfalls’ – I love the ’90s.”

― Sadie Sink

“I like smudgy black eyes and pale lips for evening. Red lipstick looks great on other girls, but it’s too much on me.”

― Saffron Aldridge

“I once had a friend who did the hair for sci-fi movies, and after a particularly bad break-up I stupidly went to her salon and told her she could do anything she liked. She dyed the bottom cherry red and the top peroxide blonde.”

― Sally Phillips

“Red carpets and dressing up are a part of work that I enjoy less than some people.”

― Sally Phillips

“I like doing stuff like, for instance, in the ‘Leave the Night On’ video, I had on a plain white T-shirt. I just wanted to do something to it to make it a little different, so I just cut a big strip out of the side, from the shirttail up to my armpit, and cut a big red strip out of another T-shirt and just sewed it in there.”

― Sam Hunt

“Oh gosh, I dyed my hair red when I was in year 11 with that L’Oreal Live stuff. It was like plumy purple – it was horrific. I looked awful; I don’t know what I was thinking!”

― Sam Smith

“There are young idealists all around the world falling in love with the Yankees now and realists who are gravitating to the Red Sox. I think the universe is on its head.”

― Samantha Power

“Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.”

― Samuel Ullman

“My earliest memory is my parents forgetting my fourth birthday. My dad looked up from reading the paper and went, ‘Oh my God!’ So we went out, and I chose a red scooter.”

― Sandi Toksvig

“Leaving my house and getting on to a red carpet is always crazy for me, because you have to find a way to be comfortable in the most uncomfortable situation imaginable.”

― Sandra Bullock

“Cisco never had a red quarter. Never. Took us three years to get funding, and in those three years, we were never in the red, and that was because we had two products to sell. They were not sexy or cool, but we had enough of a market that we could generate enough of a cash stream to grow the company.”

― Sandra Lerner

“I don’t mind doing the whole red carpet thing when I have to when it comes to publicizing a movie. But besides that, I don’t like those kinds of things at all. Celebrity status is not really something that appeals to me.”

― Saoirse Ronan

“I’ve slowly gone back, later on in life, to fish and then chicken and then, last year, red meat.”

― Sarah Chalke

“We’re red, white and blue, and President Obama, we are through with you.”

― Sarah Palin

“Scorpions like holes. We had to put our arms in the holes to dig out the smelting residues. We always performed critter checks before an excavation, but one morning, I put an arm in and felt a sharp pierce. When I brought my hand out, it was red and already swelling.”

― Sarah Parcak

“I was the understudy to the understudy in a year-two production of ‘Big Chief Red Feather.’ The boy who had the lead broke his arm, and then the understudy got chicken pox. And I loved it. I got to wear the most feathers in my headdress.”

― Sarah Snook

“The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Civil War – when I really think about them, they all seem about as likely as the parting of the Red Sea.”

― Sarah Vowell

“After a pay per view, I know there is TV the next day. But after Raw, I like to eat bad. I can have some pizza, French fries, a burger, live it up, a glass of wine – red, of course.”

― Sasha Banks

“I’ve designed since I was 12. The first was when I skated to Carmen, in red and gold and black. I wanted so many frills at that time. It had a lot going on for a little person like me. And I picked out fabrics that didn’t stretch. Very uncomfortable.”

― Sasha Cohen

“As a woman, and as somebody in the public eye, we always have to be ready for the red carpet and have the nicest outfit, work with the best makeup artist. While all that’s nice, we’re also human beings.”

― Sasha Grey

“I put things in perspective and trust that everything is in its right place, be grateful that I’m healthy. Then throw on a cap and some killer red lipstick and gloss, that always seems to do the trick.”

― Sasha Jackson

“I was home-schooled and I graduated super-early. But I’ve always had older friends, so I got to go to all their dances. I got the best of both worlds. I had the choice to go to prom with a friend of mine and I decided not to because I was filming very close to that. But red carpets and the ‘G.B.F’ prom were so much better.”

― Sasha Pieterse

“The Finnish way of dealing with Russia, whatever the situation, is that we will be very decisive to show what we don’t like, where the red line is.”

― Sauli Niinisto

“Sometimes I wonder: What are the children thinking? And sometimes I wonder why the hell I’m not buying a tree like the other neighbors. After all, there is no mention in Christianity of Christmas trees, and even if there were – is there any good reason why I shouldn’t be buying some red stockings?”

― Sayed Kashua

“Electric red hair is more for, like, people in their 20s and early 30s.”

― Scott Weiland

“’Tangerine’ being my fifth film, I was out of favors. I couldn’t afford to get the Arri Alexa or RED cameras and I definitely couldn’t shoot on film.”

― Sean Baker

“I’m not particularly good at ‘celebrity’; I don’t think it was something I was born to do. I think I can get by as an actor, but I’ve never been one for the red carpet and don’t put a lot of stock in celebrities that are famous for being famous.”

― Sean Maguire

“I used to wear a lot of red lipstick, and when I got a pimple, I’d cover it up with eyeliner to turn it into a beauty mark.”

― Selma Blair

“My mother is teaching me Indian recipes. I’ll go to the market, get everything fresh, have a glass of red wine, and just do it. I find it really therapeutic.”

― Sendhil Ramamurthy

“I’ve always liked Liverpool. I’d play a lot of video games, and I’d be them, because they played in red, like Independiente, my first club, Arsenal, or Chelsea.”

― Sergio Aguero

“I love bringing the colors and textures of other cultures. If I wear a dress that I bought from a street vendor in Bali on a red carpet, it’s a way of bringing my travels with me.”

― Serinda Swan

“I love jeans and T-shirts, but for red carpets, I like Oscar de la Renta, who is timeless. Marchesa celebrates the female form in an ethereal way. Donna Karan does an Urban Zen collection, which is eco-friendly. I love socially conscious fashion.”

― Serinda Swan

“If I wear a dress that I bought from a street vendor in Bali on a red carpet, it’s a way of bringing my travels with me.”

― Serinda Swan

“I’m strictly a sugar-free Red Bull guy. I’d rather enjoy my sugar intake elsewhere.”

― Seth Meyers

“On Mars, where the air is spare – a hundred times less dense than on Earth – someone could hear you scream. But you’d have to really strain to get anyone’s attention. On the Red Planet, where the wind is high-pitched and faint, even a symphony orchestra will sound as thin as cheap gruel.”

― Seth Shostak

“If it was up to me, I would just wear jeans and t-shirts, even to red carpets, but then no one would photograph me, so that would make me very sad. So you know, I’ve gotta keep up with the rest of the female population and sometimes try a little harder.”

― Shakira

“I was so deep in red ink coming out of ECW that I had to make a good solid living just to get my nose above the water line because of ECW.”

― Shane Douglas

“Florence Nightingale was an amazing figure. She created the American Red Cross. She saw the suffering from bad health conditions on the battlefield and in the military hospitals, and she fought like crazy to change the conditions; to make sure that the doctors washed their hands and practiced sanitary measures. She put herself at great risks.”

― Sharon Lawrence

“I have this red cardigan that my friend Coco gave me that has holes for thumbs. It’s my cozy sweater. I wear it a lot.”

― Sharon Van Etten

“One thing I’ve been doing since I was a little kid and that’s score touchdowns so if somebody needs somebody to get in the red zone and do some work, I could probably still do that pretty well.”

― Shaun Alexander

“There’s nothing worse than seeing someone chewing gum on the red carpet!”

― Shay Mitchell

“I’ll never turn down a red velvet cupcake.”

― Shay Mitchell

“When I was a kid, I always had the red hair, the white skin, and freckles. Back then, I wanted to look like everybody else, but now I realize that being different is definitely a major help.”

― Sheamus

“Since I have that edgy, rocker-tomboy kind of vibe, it can be very difficult to translate my style for the red carpet.”

― Shenae Grimes

“I first came to Delhi with my parents when I was 15 years old. We went to see the Red Fort, and I was walking behind my parents, and some guy who was walking along touched me inappropriately. I screamed, but he was acting so cool about it. I did not create any further scene and left.”

― Shenaz Treasury

“For my first wedding, I cried all the way down the aisle. My fake eyelash came off. My nose was red. My eyes were swollen. I’m not one of those pretty criers.”

― Sherri Shepherd

“What is so seductive about texting, about keeping that phone on, about that little red light on the BlackBerry, is you want to know who wants you.”

― Sherry Turkle

“Whenever I play, red ball or white ball, I utilise whatever knowledge I have of the game.”

― Shikhar Dhawan

“I’m a green tea addict, though the occasional glass of red wine is nice, too.”

“People don’t associate red hair, pale skin, and freckles with beauty.”

― Shirley Manson

“There’s this image of us on the red carpet, being really fancy, and then there’s the reality.”

― Sia

“Light is a metaphoric thing. There is green light and red light. Then there is black light, which is mostly danger.”

― Sigmar Polke

“I’m quite shy, so if there’s a guy I like, I actually ignore him because I can’t speak to him. I get all red and sweaty, and it’s embarrassing.”

― Silvia Colloca

“I make breakfast, which is usually Kellogg’s Red Berries or egg whites, and then I go to the gym that’s only 10 minutes away.”

― Simone Biles

“What treaty that the whites have kept has the red man broken? Not one.”

― Sitting Bull

“I am a red man. If the Great Spirit had desired me to be a white man he would have made me so in the first place.”

― Sitting Bull

“They respect rappers in the U.S., but in England, it’s the Queen’s country. She’ll forever be putting out the message on these BBC networks that there’s no hood: it’s tea and red phoneboxes.”

― Skepta

“When I was nine years old, I wrote a short story called ‘How to Build a Snowman,’ from which no practical snowperson-crafting techniques could be gleaned. The story was an assignment for class and it featured a series of careful but meaningless instructions. Of course, the building of the snowman was a red herring.”

― Sloane Crosley

“The red carpet is a beautiful situation for people. I think everybody appreciates it and loves it and honors it. Nobody really acts a fool because they know this is a one-time thing.”

― Snoop Dogg

“Whether it be a red eyeliner or a graphic line on the crease of my lids, I’m more attracted to the ideas of something interesting than being ‘pretty.’”

― Solange Knowles

“If I have on a bright red lip, you’ll rarely ever catch me with eyeshadow on. It’s one or the other for me – pick one feature for the day and really focus on that.”

― Solange Knowles

“My favourite feature is my hair. It has always made me look different. It was so red when I was born that my mother thought I had blood on my head. When I was a teenager, I looked like a tomboy, but then I understood that I could be a woman who was an intelligent mix between a lady and my mannish side.”

― Sonia Rykiel

“We want to be one of those bands that made their own way – a U2, a Led Zeppelin, a Red Hot Chili Peppers. I don’t want to be a ‘Behind the Music.’”

― Sonny Sandoval

“I couldn’t care less about walking down the red carpet in a pair of heels and a posh frock. I’d rather be in my pyjamas at home.”

― Sophia Myles

“On my wedding day. I didn’t want a natural, blushing-bride look – I had a full-on hairdo and red lips. I thought it would be disingenuous to do the whole virginal look, so even though I had the white dress, I had pink net underneath.”

― Sophie Ellis-Bextor

“I’m playing an Amazon warrior princess in a new radio comedy series called ‘Elvenquest,’ and I’m playing a Russian genius in the comeback of ‘Red Dwarf.’”

― Sophie Winkleman

“’Red Hook Summer’ is another chapter in my chronicles of Brooklyn.”

― Spike Lee

“Asia can learn much from Europe. Trade could be made easier in Asia, and the conditions for doing business could be improved by reducing red tape. In this regard, Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea have done better than the best in Europe.”

― Sri Mulyani Indrawati

“I carry Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er eyeliner and Christian Dior red lipstick to amp up my look in a flash.”

― Stana Katic

“And I tried it and I felt, I guess I must have been pulled in by the red light of television and now I’ve been on TV since 1992.”

― Star Jones

“My mum is totally crazy for fashion still. Her job was as a laundress, but I loved it when she would dress up in her red suit with a mini jacket and flared trousers and get her wig fixed at the hairdresser’s – it was the time of wigs – and we would go shopping.”

― Stefano Gabbana

“I do like a red carpet. Unfortunately I’m always under-prepared when it comes to outfits. I’m so busy running around I don’t get time to do fittings.”

― Stefflon Don

“I always wear my Lip Lights gloss from the Karl Lagerfeld and ModelCo line. I like this brownish pink called St. Tropez Sunset. It’s like a take on your own lip colour but not too heightened. If I’m going out, I do the red.”

― Stella Maxwell

“All my family look Irish. They act Irish. My sister even has red hair… it’s crazy. I’m the one that doesn’t seem Irish. None of the kids in my family, my siblings, speak with an Irish accent… we’ve never lived there full-time; we weren’t born there. We just go there once or twice a year. It’s weird. Our parents sound Irish, but we don’t.”

― Stella Maxwell

“I’ve been embracing the red lip and just wearing it every day, not just for going out. And I get so many compliments on it. I love the Julie Hewett Rouge Noir: it’s sort of a forties red.”

― Stephanie March

“There are moments when you’re stepping out of a really nice car on to a red carpet, and you feel inside like, ‘This is quite nice,’ but I’m never whisked off my feet.”

― Stephen Graham

“I enjoy painting. It’s an incredible release of tension, and I feel very excited doing it. I squeeze out some wonderful red paint, and I get a thrill. My heart starts beating faster. It’s almost a sensual thing working with these thick acrylic paints. I almost want to put my hands in.”

― Stephen Hough

“Blue staters tend to send liberal politicians to office, who then vote for bigger federal spending – even though a greater share of the money goes to the red states.”

― Sue Bird

“I don’t really drink, but the one thing I really hanker after is Zubrowka vodka. If it’s someone’s birthday, I’ll pretend I like red wine for about three sips.”

― Sue Perkins

“Growing up, I was a little hippie kid. I went to some good concerts… Amnesty International with Bob Dylan and Tracy Chapman… The best concert I ever went to was this one at the Cow Palace my freshman year in college on New Year’s Eve. It was Pearl Jam opening for Nirvana opening for Red Hot Chili Peppers.”

― Svetlana Alexievich

“When I would visit my octopus friend, Octavia, at New England aquarium, usually she would look me in the face, flow right over to see me, and flush red with emotion when she took my arms in hers. Often when I’d stroke her she’d turn white beneath my touch, the colour of a relaxed octopus.”

― Sy Montgomery

“I love my Force Fins, which are the kind of fins Special Forces use and really are adapted from the fins of fish. They’re very efficient. They are so beautiful, a pair is in the Museum of Modern Art. The set I have are ruby red. I call them my ruby flippers.”

― Sylvia Earle

“I saw the first of the 7-mile-long column appear – red and orange and green banners, ‘Ban the Bomb!’ etc., shining and swaying slowly. Absolute silence. I found myself weeping to see the tan, dusty marchers, knapsacks on their backs – Quakers and Catholics, Africans and whites, Algerians and French – 40 percent were London housewives.”

― Sylvia Plath

“Sugar makes me feel crazy – like, makes my body hurt kind of a thing. I don’t really eat fruit because it has a lot of sugar. I try not to eat a lot of red meat, but every now and again, I feel like I need iron or something – something that I’m missing.”


“It seemed that rebellion must have an unassailable base, something guarded not merely from attack, but from the fear of it: such a base as we had in the Red Sea Parts, the desert, or in the minds of the men we converted to our creed.”

― T. E. Lawrence

“I’ve stated that it’s possible the only reason I’m in show business is that I have such a strange, particular head of hair. That, and I can grow a red beard.”

“From warriors ravens grew red And with their leader a host attacked.”

― Taliesin

“My personal dressing is inspired by my mood and mindset. I can jump from a girl-next-door to runway queen. I’m a T-shirt-and-jeans kind of a woman. But I also enjoy the red carpet look.”

― Tamannaah

“The troops aren’t red and blue. They’re not black and white. They’re not male and female. They are Americans! When they put their uniforms on, they are Americans. And that’s a fact.”

― Tariq Ali

“With the release of her fourth album, ‘Red,’ in 2012 and a handful of highly publicized romances, Taylor was criticized by the press and other entertainers for such sinful acts as dating people and writing songs about it, gaining a reputation as boy-crazy and love-ridden.”

― Taylor Kinney

“I don’t eat any red meat.”

― Taylor Momsen

“I can recognize a good actor. I can recognize someone that can convey emotion and that has the essence and not get lost in the minutia of, ‘Well, that person’s got red hair, and so does the other.’ Some of the decisions in casting that seem so important at the time, until you get on set and you’re starting to shoot.”

― Taylor Sheridan

“When I have 7,000 people plus at Red Rock just for a show of mine, I think it’s wonderful to get that many people to come see you.”

“It has been almost three years since U.S. President Barack Obama pipsqueaked on his chemical-weapons ‘red line’ in Syria and joined with Russian strongman Vladimir Putin in the pantomime that resulted in the Sept. 27, 2013 U.N. Security Council Resolution 2118, which called on Assad to surrender his chemical weapons stockpile.”

― Terry Glavin

“In the three years since Obama invited Russia to help him renege on his ‘red line’ on the use of chemical weapons in Syria, the Syrian Network for Human Rights has documented 136 occasions in which the Assad regime has deployed poison gas in its war on the Syrian people.”

― Thelma Schoonmaker

“We want to try and transform the Red Sox into a team like the Braves or the Yankees, where you can almost count on the postseason every year.”

“I don’t want to be buried in a Red Sox casket.”

― Theo Epstein

“The Red Sox hadn’t won in 86 years when we took over. We didn’t run from that challenge – we embraced it.”

― Theo Epstein

“The Cubs – with their passionate fans, dedicated ownership, tradition, and World Series drought – represented the ultimate new challenge and the one team I could imagine working for after such a fulfilling Red Sox experience.”

― Theo Epstein

“As I sat back and imagined what my transition from the Red Sox might be, I thought it would smell more like champagne than beer, I guess you would say.”

― Theo Epstein

“I want to change the color of Starbucks from green to red. Whose job was it to say, ‘This is going to be green?’ I want that to be my job.”

― Thomas P.M. Barnett

― Tiger Shroff

“I love Bill Clinton. I think we should make him king. I’m talking the red robe, the turkey leg – everything.”

― Tim McGraw

“I am not a redhead. I have never been and am still not. Well, just a little… but I was blond as a kid and then mousy brown. As I got older… it came up. I’ve got a lot of red in my hair, but I’m not a ginge.”

― Tim Minchin

“So I went to the Chinese restaurant and this duck came up to me with a red.”

― Tim Wakefield

“Going through college a Red Sox fan and knowing the history behind everything that was going on back in the ’80s and finally getting a chance to win a World Series for this great city and bringing it back after 86 years, it was truly special, and it’s one of the highlights that I’ll remember for a long time.”

― Tim Wakefield

“There’s so many great Western films. Let’s see, ‘Red River,’ any of those Henry Fonda movies are fantastic. Any of those John Ford movies are fantastic. I love all the Eastwood ‘Man With No Name’ movies, John Wayne, ‘True Grit.’”

― Timothy Olyphant

“Red is my signature color.”

― Tina Knowles

“I’m not going to be the artist that talks about a million dollar whip and ‘I just bought some red bottoms.’ That’s cool, but that’s not all there is to it. I’d rather talk about something everyone can relate to and feel.”

“All of these red carpet events may seem natural for you journalists, but it doesn’t feel natural for actors.”

― Toby Jones

“Storytelling is the only studio movie where the censorship is perfectly clear, the only studio movie with a big red box covering up a shot. I take pride in that – and, of course, in having avoided the fate of Eyes Wide Shut.”

― Todd Solondz

“When I heard the idea of a Slayer wine, I tasted the wines they suggested for us. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first before I tasted it, but once I tried it, I thought, ‘You know what? This is actually really good. A really fruity and round type of flavor for a red wine.’ It’s very flavorful and tasted awesome!”

― Tom Araya

“Guantanamo Bay can be and has been visited repeatedly by the International Red Cross and other human-rights groups for observation in an open, regular, and transparent manner. Detainees receive the same medical care as the guard force and are able to participate in their daily prayer sessions.”

― Tom Cotton

“Our warriors and their families don’t ask for much. But there are a few things we’d like. A commander-in-chief who speaks of winning wars and not merely ending wars, calls the enemy by its name, and draws red lines carefully but enforces them ruthlessly.”

― Tom Cotton

“The flesh of king salmon, which varies in color from white to pink to red, has a high fat content, making it perfect for grilling.”

― Tom Douglas

“If you want something beautiful to put on the dinner table, pick up a sockeye, the salmon species with the most vivid red flesh.”

― Tom Douglas

“There’s something majestic about a 30-pound Chinook salmon roasted and served whole – people get excited when you present it with the head and tail on. It has beautifully browned skin and extraordinary bright red flesh when you cut into it.”

― Tom Douglas

“If you’re at the Oscars, there’s not a man on that red carpet who is not wearing make-up. Most straight actors I know get quite used to it. Even when they go out in real life they grab some sort of bronzer and they throw it on. They dye their eyebrows, they dye their lashes – they know the tricks.”

― Tom Ford

“I like to be other people, not me. And when you’re on the red carpet, it’s like, ‘Here’s Tom Hardy.’ I don’t want to be me. That’s why I play other people.”

― Tom Hardy

“Chris Hemsworth is like Christopher Reeve in that he can do two things: he can wear a big red cape without a shred of self-consciousness. But he’s also funny as hell, and he’s so sweet. So with all the fish-out-of-water stuff, he’s so funny. So he does almost two jobs in a way.”

― Tom Hiddleston

“I always found the extraordinary loss of life in the First World War very moving. I remember learning about it as a very young child, as an eight- or nine-year-old, asking my teachers what poppies were for. Every year the teachers would suddenly wear these red paper flowers in their lapels, and I would say ‘What does that mean?’”

― Tom Hiddleston

“Making music on TV used to be as common as commercials. In the ’60s and ’70s, prime time was stuffed with variety shows headlined by such major and treasured talents as Carol Burnett, Red Skelton, the Smothers Brothers and Richard Pryor, who had a very brief comedy-variety hour on NBC that was censored literally to death.”

― Tom Shales

“Red meat is not bad for you. Now blue-green meat, that’s bad for you!”

― Tom Smothers

“I used to take formal notes in lines of blue, and underline the key words in red, and I realised I needed only the key words and the idea. Then to bring in connections, I drew arrows and put in images and codes. It was a picture outside my head of what was inside my head – ‘mind map’ is the language my brain spoke.”

― Tony Buzan

“Red Letter Christians believe in the doctrines of the Apostle’s Creed, are convinced that the Scriptures have been inspired by the Holy Spirit, and make having a personal transforming relationship with the resurrected Christ the touchtone of their faith.”

― Tony Campolo

“The FCC was founded in 1934, and their first major action was in 1941 when they broke up NBC. NBC used to be NBC Red and NBC Blue, and they broke them up for the same exact reason: that there wasn’t going to be a diversity of voices and because they were vertically integrated.”

― Tony Cardenas

“I have been very fortunate to be able to work and get the opportunity to play different roles. It’s nice to do big studio pictures and then work in Glasgow on films like ‘Red Road’ and then dress up as a vampire or an alien. I think that’s why a lot of people are actors – the versatility.”

― Tony Curran

“God has a kingdom. It’s made up of citizens: some black, some white, some red, yellow, Spanish backgrounds. His intention was never that the individual uniqueness would cause them to lose sight of the flag flying over them – the flag of the cross.”

― Toussaint Louverture

“Lie on the bridge and watch the water flowing past. Or run, or wade through the swamp in your red boots. Or roll yourself up and listen to the rain falling on the roof. It’s very easy to enjoy yourself.”

― Tove Jansson

“Red carpet is a little bit scary. It’s not about expression. It’s about taking a pretty picture in a really weird, awkward way, with so many people watching. It’s a glamorous part of the job, but it requires its own kind of courage.”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“It is important for me to feel like myself on a red carpet – not the way somebody else thinks I should look.”

― Tracee Ellis Ross

“’Killer Joe’ provides a lot of red meat for the theater. Pam MacKinnon is the perfect director to shepherd a group of actors who share a certain bloodlust.”

― Tracy Letts

“The regulatory systems in place disincentive innovation. It’s intense to fight the red tape.”

― Travis Kalanick

“My politics are: I’m a trustbuster. Very focused. And yeah, I’m pro-efficiency. I want the most economic activity at the lowest price possible. It’s good for everybody; it’s not red or blue.”

― Travis Kalanick

“Most Americans in both red and blue states reject and resent the message being sent by Hollywood and some in the media that values are subjective, to be defined by the individual and not by God.”

― Trent Lott

“The dead spacecraft in orbit have become a permanent fixture around our planet, not unlike the rings of Saturn. They will be the longest-lasting artifacts of human civilization, quietly circling the Earth until the sun turns into a red giant about 5 billion years from now.”

― Trevor Paglen

“The days of red carpet disasters are kind of over.”

― Trinny Woodall

“When I walked in on ‘Drag Race’ and saw Katya, I had no idea she was gonna be funny, because she was stunning. She had this perfect red lip, I remember looking into her eyes and being like, ‘This is a woman!’ Then she was really funny. She kind of presents normal, and it’s a one-two punch with the comedy.”

― Trixie Mattel

“Priyanka and Red One made a great record that we think will stand on its own. People won’t buy the music just because she is who she is. We want them to buy it because it’s good.”

― Troy Carter

“Yes, black is slimming, but it’s not always youthful. The right tone of red, however, is flattering on all women.”

― Twiggy

“I just became less rebellious with clothes, and today, I can slip into appropriate attire according to what the occasion requires, but off the red carpet, I am not that particular about what I wear, and comfort is my main priority.”

“I am not a vegetarian. For some time, I tried to be a semi-vegetarian, eating only fish, birds, and no red meat, but… I don’t know if I have an opinion on vegetarianism.”

― Varg Vikernes

“They never ask the celebrities why they don’t wear their own clothes on the red carpet.”

― Vera Wang

“I wrote a lot of ‘Red Queen’ wrapped in a blanket, cramped up while watching the snow come down.”

― Victoria Aveyard

“So far, the biggest regret I have in regards to the world of ‘Red Queen’ is that I didn’t get to world-build enough. I don’t think I did enough work explaining how the world came to be, and while I’m planning to go more into it, I’m a greedy writer, and I’m always going to wish I had more room to delve into the complexities of a fantasy realm.”

― Victoria Aveyard

“I’m a visual writer, so it’s fitting that my first brush with ‘Red Queen’ was an image. I had the idea of a teenage girl in an arena, a bit like ‘Gladiator,’ and she’s about to be executed. But instead of being killed, she kills her executioner with lightning.”

― Victoria Aveyard

“I’m a sponge when it comes to stories. I’d say everything influences me in some way, but for ‘Red Queen’ in particular, I was really affected by the ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series by George R. R. Martin.”

― Victoria Aveyard

“I didn’t have a desk to write ‘Red Queen’ on, so I got a nice writing desk.”

― Victoria Aveyard

“I’ve been that celebrity on the red carpet, and I appreciate that something hasn’t got to just look good from the front, from the back, it’s got to look good at all angles.”

― Victoria Beckham

“My first-ever car, my parents bought me a red Fiat Uno. I was 17 and just so happy to have a car, so I was very fortunate that my parents were in a position to get me one – it was a secondhand car, but I was just so happy to have it.”

― Victoria Beckham

“The kind of person who’s going to stand on the red carpet and love the attention and have the big grin – I’m just not like that. I want to get in there, do what I’ve got to do, and get home to my kids.”

― Victoria Beckham

“Like most people – unless they’re very practised at it or have no warm blood at all in their veins – I feel a little apprehensive about the red carpet. It’s always a bit bewildering when people are taking pictures and asking questions before the ceremony.”

― Viggo Mortensen

“My job is to support businesses, that means promoting British commerce in the big emerging markets that have been neglected in the past. It means keeping Britain open to inward investors, trade and skilled workers. It means cutting red tape which is suffocating growing companies which create jobs.”

― Vince Cable

“In Asia, red is the colour of joy; red is the colour of festivities and of celebration. In Chinese culture, blue is the colour of mourning.”

― Vincent Tan

“You look at Man United and Liverpool, and they are red – they are much more successful and have a bigger fan base than Chelsea or Manchester City.”

― Vincent Tan

“The elements that create glamour are not specific styles – bias-cut gowns or lacquered furniture – but more general qualities: grace, mystery, transcendence. To the right audience, Halle Berry is more glamorous commanding the elements as Storm in the X-Men movies than she is walking the red carpet in a designer gown.”

― Virginia Postrel

“The first time that I ever saw Babe Ruth was in the Boston Red Sox clubhouse.”

― Waite Hoyt

“I don’t eat red meat.”

“I live my life outside of the glitz and glamour of the red carpet events, and so you’ll never see me there. I’m never at parties.”

― Werner Herzog

“The Ivory Coast had been begging for ages. The country and the fans love me already, and I haven’t even done anything. I may not get the red carpet – it may not have the same Nike deals as when you play for England – but I’m going to be playing, I’m going to be loved, and that’s all I want. Nothing else.”

― Willie Robertson

“I love to play with make-up. I adapt my beauty look to my outfit, so as soon as I know what I’m wearing, I know if I want to go for a red lip or a smoky eye. I usually won’t put those two together, but it all depends on what outfit I’m going for.”

― Winnie Harlow

“It’s a myth that generally Asians are mostly vegetarians. The Japanese are the kings of red meat, but it’s expensive. The Chinese and Vietnamese love their pork. Many Indians, especially the Muslims, can’t live without their lamb.”

“I ain’t a Communist necessarily, but I been in the red all my life.”

“I love feminine soft shades for summers – I like pastels and bright hues, too. I like summer dresses and tank tops; I think they never go out of style. As much as I’m happy with Western wear for red carpet and social dos, I also like Indian ethnic wear for special occasions.”

― Yami Gautam

― Yotam Ottolenghi

“The main distinction for fresh chillies is whether they are red or green, the difference being one of ripeness.”
