“I don’t let it bother me too much if someone doesn’t like me. I just figure there’s no accounting for taste. It’s not me, it’s my acting. It’s like if someone doesn’t like someone’s food, they just don’t like my acting.”

― Anna Chlumsky

― Anthony Fauci

“Is it or is it not ethical to create an embryo, and to create a person for the purpose of getting an organ to give to someone else? Your knee-jerk reaction is ‘absolutely not;’ but you need the ethical analysis of that to show why and how that is something that you need to stay away from.”

― Anupam Kher

“An American Idol is someone who knows how to change people’s lives through music.”

― Anwar Robinson

“When I shake someone’s hand, I apply the lightest pressure on their wrist with my index and middle fingers and lead them across my body to my left. The cross-body lead is actually a move from salsa dancing. I’m finding out what kind of a partner they’re going to be, and I know that if they follow my lead, I can do whatever I want with them.”

― Apollo Robbins

“Usually I’ll tell someone, for example, like their watch. If they have a watch on, I might say, ‘In three minutes, I’d like to be wearing your watch. Do I have your permission?’ Once they say yes, I play a little game with them as I’m interacting with them, and I steal their watch.”

“You can have all the agents and publicists in the world but no one’s ever going to give you 110 per cent like someone who loves you.”

“I wanted to design a line based on Hollywood’s Golden Era. I talked with Stephen Burrows and with Willi Smith and with one or two other people, but it just seems like such a hard field to break into. I need someone like Calvin Klein’s manager to get behind me!”

― Aretha Franklin

“Make no mistake, if the payroll-tax cut is extended, it will become permanent. Social Security will become another welfare program as the tie between what someone pays and what they receive gets broken.”

― Ari Fleischer

“I want the power that comes from expressing myself creatively and putting something back into the world. Being someone’s muse would be flattering, but it could get old fast.”

“I’m bad in front of the camera. However, if someone gave me a small role in a film with two dialogues and one scene, I’d do it.”

― Arijit Singh

“Whether if soul did not exist time would exist or not, is a question that may fairly be asked; for if there cannot be someone to count there cannot be anything that can be counted, so that evidently there cannot be number; for number is either what has been, or what can be, counted.”

― Aristotle

“I enjoy doing action a lot more because my films have a sense of violence. That’s because I have a broad structure, and if I hit someone, it looks believable. Maybe my contemporaries are meeker-looking in comparison.”

― Arjun Kapoor

“I am someone who doesn’t talk more than what is required, but I am also a fun person.”

― Arthur Smith

“Eddie Murphy said once in an interview that nothing is offensive if it’s funny. I sort of agree with that, but if something’s funny and you’re the subject of it, sometimes it’s more offensive. If someone’s insulting you, you want them to sound like an idiot.”

― Ashley Madekwe

“I always try to manipulate the eye when I’m dressing myself or someone else. I don’t have an hourglass figure, so I’m always trying to give the illusion that I have one; bringing the eye to the waistline by adding a belt or having a heavier print at the bottom or at the top helps define your shape.”

― Audrey Tautou

“All art is political in the sense that it serves someone’s politics.”

“I am someone without an ego.”

― Ayushmann Khurrana

“The biggest crime in Nabokov’s ‘Lolita’ is imposing your own dream upon someone else’s reality. Humbert Humbert is blind. He doesn’t see Lolita’s reality. He doesn’t see that Lolita should leave. He only sees Lolita as an extension of his own obsession. This is what a totalitarian state does.”

― Azar Nafisi

“Sometimes those big bloated superhero movies take themselves too seriously compared to the material they were based on. Am I going to listen to psychoanalysis from someone with a mask?”

― Becky G

“Soccer can be very subtle; it’s a very nuanced sport. If I happen to make things easy and people don’t see it, that could be a reason why someone might stand out more than I do. But that’s just the way I’ve grown up playing the game.”

“One of the rudest things you can do, food-wise, is to stare at someone in the act of eating. It draws attention to the unseemly fact that eating is a bodily function – like animals, we are trapped by our hungers, but we do our best to disguise them with such civilized props as menus and forks.”

― Bee Wilson

“There is no dignity without work. You can’t tell someone who has nothing to eat to stay patient.”

― Beji Caid Essebsi

― Bela Lugosi

“I think there is something about L.A., fortunately: once you get one role people think, ‘Oh well, someone employed her, so maybe we can.’ I mean, that’s my idea of it, anyway. ‘She can put one foot in front of the other and say a line.’”

― Bella Heathcote

“Making movies has become such a golden ring, and it’s all such a big business, that the rewards system has gotten totally out of whack. Suddenly, you’re treated in a manner befitting someone who is actually an important person.”

― Ben Affleck

“To answer the question, though: I didn’t always want to direct. I just liked the idea of it. If a friend was making a short and needed someone who knew screen direction, I would jump in. It would be horrible, but it led to a short, then another, and another. It was like student films.”

“I was asked by an NPR reporter once why don’t I talk about race that often. I said, ‘It’s because I’m a neurosurgeon.’ And she thought that was a strange response… I said, ‘You see, when I take someone to the operating room, I’m actually operating on the thing that makes them who they are. The skin doesn’t make them who they are.’”

― Ben Carson

“Trump represents a vibrant and fed-up mass of people who see the Republican Party as standing for nothing, so they have turned to someone who can beat the party by standing for anything.”

― Ben Domenech

“Many times I’ve gone on tours with Paul Anka. He would have someone sitting behind him to keep people from even talking to him. You were almost in a little restricted area there.”

“I never felt like someone who was boyish and coming to terms with asking girls out or anything like that, which was what ‘The Big Steal’ and ‘Spotswood’ were about. But I guess that’s the impression I left on people.”

― Ben Mendelsohn

“I suspect, for a lot of people who become actors, there’s a feeling of wanting to be someone other than who they actually are.”

― Ben Mendelsohn

“The idea that I am cynical because I’m writing the books that I write is a bit like someone saying, ‘What, you’ve done a second album? Oh, I see, cashing in on your first album, are you?’ But I’m a musician! It’s sort of what I do.”

― Ben Schott

“An amateur is someone who supports himself with outside jobs which enable him to paint. A professional is someone whose wife works to enable him to paint.”

― Ben Shahn

“There are times that everyone hates his or her job. Were they freed from the economic consequences of having these jobs, they’d drop out of the workforce. There are only two problems with this strategy: First, someone has to pay for it; second, it is not the recipe for human fulfillment.”

― Ben Shapiro

“Americans are terrified because so many of them have been laid off in recent years and months and they fear that they may be next. Even if they have not been laid off or have not known anyone laid off, they definitely know someone who has lost his home.”

― Ben Stein

“We are so mired in the complexity of our reactions to other people that when you come across someone who is asocial, there is a simplicity that is refreshing.”

― Ben Whishaw

“I’m not confident in social situations; just going up to someone in a bar and saying ‘Hi’ is going to be even more difficult because they won’t know the real me. They will just know me as a fictional person I play on the screen.”

― Benedict Cumberbatch

“I got live tweeted once by someone who was opposite my home in some rented accommodation. He was actually describing on twitter what I was doing. ‘I took a shirt off, I went to the window, I put a shirt back on… ‘ And I’ve got blinds in my flat!”

“Sugaring season is the season when you tap the trees for sugar that turns into maple syrup. I’ve married someone from Vermont, so it’s an expression I kept hearing, and I’m like, ‘What is that? That’s just so beautiful.’ I like the idea it’s the very, very first murmurings of spring.”

“I tell my daughters, ‘If something doesn’t feel right, whether that’s going to a party, doing a video, shooting something, you’re around someone that’s creeping you out, use your gut. If you’re in a car with a driver and something don’t feel right, use your gut.’”

― Brian J. Smith

“You’ll get, like, 10 pages of sides the night before, and you have to go in and just wing it. For someone like me, I came from the theater, and I don’t like putting anything up in front of anybody until it’s really, really ready, so it can be very frustrating.”

“But ours was intended to be a citizen government. It is what of, by and for the people means. And when our most important issue in California is the creation of jobs, I think it’s quite helpful to have someone in the U.S. Senate or in the governor’s seat who actually knows where jobs come from.”

― Carly Fiorina

“When our most important issue is the debt that we’re piling on our children and grandchildren, I think it’s pretty helpful to have someone in the U.S. Senate who has actually managed billions of dollars and knows how to cut billions of dollars.”

― Carly Fiorina

“My tactic is to make eyes at someone.”

― Carly Rae Jepsen

“You can’t always understand if someone’s into you or not, so you should never really pursue something too far without gauging that first.”

― Carol Alt

“I’m not afraid of putting myself out there to someone and then them passing on it. At least you could have gotten a ‘yes.’ So it’s worthwhile to have the cojones to do it.”

― Carol Leifer

“One very common thing is that often very brilliant children stop working because they’re praised so often that it’s what they want to live as – brilliant – not as someone who ever makes mistakes. It really stunts their motivation.”

― Caroline Flack

“I don’t think ‘X Factor’ would put someone in front of the camera on purpose if they were ill. I don’t think that’s something they would do. There’s psychologists who test out all the contestants before they go on.”

― Caroline Flack

“I don’t believe for a second ‘X Factor’ would deliberately put someone through who wasn’t mentally stable.”

― Caroline Flack

“A mentor is someone who is willing to give you advice that isn’t in the best interest for them. It takes a real mentor to put you first.”

― Caroline Ghosn

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

“The idea of someone not liking me or not liking my movie was always easier to deal with than someone really liking it. I don’t know why.”

― Casey Affleck

“I don’t want to be known as someone who is deliberately trying to do things that are not commercial! That is not a good reputation to have when you’re trying to be a working actor.”

“Molly Shannon, for example, is someone I’ve always really looked up to, because her comedy is so physical and wild and unembarrassed and brave.”

― Casey Wilson

“Everything related to ‘SNL,’ that was very sudden – from the time I found out I was joining the cast to the time I could read on a blog that someone watching the show thinks I’m fat, that was about 30 days. That blog part, that could’ve moved a little more slowly. But hey – it’s all material, right?”

“You can’t always tell if someone’s gay over Twitter, but when he’s talking to you about ‘Real Housewives,’ it’s probably OK to assume.”

― Casey Wilson

“People expect not just songwriters but all personalities to pontificate about their egos – they just wanna see someone talking about themselves constantly. I’m not interested in that.”

― Cass McCombs

“After a two-term presidency, many young voters seem to want someone who is radically different from, even the opposite of, the commander in chief to whom they have become accustomed. After all, a two-term president will have led their nation for a significant percentage of their lives. That’s boring. Isn’t it time for a transformation?”

― Cass Sunstein

“I am a professional squash player, and I recently played badly – but as well as I could – in a professional squash tournament. A professional squash player might sound like someone who is in a food-tasting group, but it is a racquet sport.”

― Cass Sunstein

“The thing I’m afraid of the most with the 800m is injuries. That’s why I don’t normally like to run in a group: I prefer to be in front, just in case someone pushes me with their spikes. I don’t like stuff like that.”

― Caster Semenya

“If I’m interviewing someone I need to know everything about them – I do these massive spider diagrams. Everything under different categories, and certain questions in other categories.”

― Cat Deeley

“I think that the benefit of playing someone like Queen Elizabeth is that so much has been written about her, and there’s so much speculation about her – was she a hermaphrodite? She’s so mythologised, and there are a lot of images of her.”

― Cate Blanchett

“It’s changing a bit, but the thing in LA is everyone is either in the industry, or knows someone who is in the industry. So, they don’t let on that they recognize you, that’s what I’ve found out.”

“People expect a lot more from someone they think looks interesting. It’s a burden.”

“I knew how to come up with jokes at someone’s expense really fast.”

― Cathy Engelbert

“Australians are a fantastic bunch of people but the attention can be overwhelming for someone like me.”

― Cathy Freeman

“Edgar Degas’s famous sculpture, ‘Little Dancer Aged Fourteen,’ served as my muse for ‘The Painted Girls.’ I came upon a television documentary on the work, and as someone who held the sculpture in high esteem and who largely considered ballet to be the high-minded pursuit of privileged young girls, I was struck by what I would learn.”

― Cathy Marie Buchanan

“The Republicans have long had a platform of being pro-life. And I’m someone that believes life begins at conception and should be protected.”

“We consider Monteverdi the first composer of opera. There was someone before, but everything started with Monteverdi.”

― Cecilia Bartoli

“We as comics do want an immediate response from the audience. It’s really quiet on the set, and there are only the producers, and the director, so a comic is looking for someone to give a reaction, even if it is the camera guy.”

― Cedric the Entertainer

“If someone were to call me ‘the next Amy Tan,’ it would not be because – or not primarily because – we have similar themes or subjects or styles. Let’s be honest: it would be because we are both Chinese American.”

― Celeste Ng

“With the first novel, I had to tell myself, ‘No one is ever going to read it, so you might as well just write it.’ With the second, I was pretty sure someone was going to read it.”

“If someone was out all day, we wouldn’t give them just one cat, because they would be lonely – we would give them two cats.”

― Cenk Uygur

“I think a progressive is someone who cares to expand freedom for everybody.”

― Cenk Uygur

“That is perceptive of you, because in this country men dancers have always been viewed with suspicion. If you were an actor, a star, and a dancer, you had to be, or have a name like someone ‘mainstream.’”

“Now, so, if you want to blame someone for wasteful spending, the Republicans are in the majority.”

“When you are the parent of someone who is a chronic pain sufferer, you end up creating these binders for all of the hospital stays so you can keep track of every visit and any new thing that comes out.”

― Chandra Wilson

“When someone new takes over a role, the company doesn’t change anything from the script, but they do lay it all out there and let people take from it what they take from it.”

― Chandra Wilson

“Someone who doesn’t take herself too seriously and can be a goofball. Because everyone’s a nerd inside, I don’t care how cool you are.”

― Channing Tatum

“In all the movies I’m in love with someone in my head. There’s always love in a film somewhere. It doesn’t matter even if it’s an action movie.”

― Channing Tatum

“I’ve never studied the classics, but I’d like to. My teacher offered to show me how the Greeks were able to sculpt someone perfectly. From there, you can go off and experiment – sort of like jazz. Once you learn to play anything, you can break the form and go and do something even bigger.”

― Channing Tatum

“By all means, let someone else have Pearl Harbor.”

“I understand the power of symbols, and if I had anything on my house that seriously offended someone, I’d take it down if for no other reason than common courtesy.”

― Charles Barkley

“Acknowledging someone is an act of altruism in the first place, so converting that act of altruism into a pizza party or company fleece jacket or a gift card is fine, but it’s not in keeping with spirit in which it all began.”

― Charles Best

“At, you can give as little as $1 and get the same level of choice, transparency, and feedback that is traditionally reserved for someone who gives millions. We call it citizen philanthropy.”

― Charles Best

“Imagine someone with $10 finding a classroom project that speaks to them personally, seeing where their money is going, and realizing that they don’t need to be a millionaire to make a difference.”

― Charles Best

“I think philanthropy is so much more in keeping with spirit of shouting someone out than a material reward.”

― Charles Best

“It’s understandable why someone might not want to take on a book they think is emotionally hard.”

“If I talk about Charles Dance I am talking about something else, something I operate and wind up and have to make an impression with and use to transmit someone else’s screenplay.”

“When you have a label stuck on you, people tend to believe it. If someone calls you suave and debonair, you only get offered parts in a suit and a collar and tie. It just so happens I wear them reasonably well.”

“Teenagers ultimately don’t mind belonging to a group, because there’s always the opportunity to eventually become someone new. The elderly, by definition, are running out of opportunities for reinvention.”

― Charles Duhigg

“We love to receive praise, but usually we’re not certain what message, precisely, we should take from it. On the other hand, when someone points out our flaws, we realize immediately that something needs to change.”

― Charles Duhigg

“There is a woman named Wendy Wood, who did a study when she was at Duke, and she followed around college students to try to figure out how much of their day was decision-making versus how much was habit. And what she found was that about 45 percent of all the behaviors that someone did in a day was habit.”

― Charles Duhigg

“As someone who has led his party through two general elections, I have not always been immune from feeling the pressure of electioneering tactics.”

― Charles Krauthammer

“Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.”

― Charles M. Schulz

“Living with my grandmother in Bath, I sort of thought I was living in the 19th century. My grandmother was someone who, in a way, was rather defiantly trying to live a pre-World War I existence.”

― Charles Palliser

“Our information network is much better protected than our railroad network, and someone who cracks a system is able to cause far less human damage than someone who derails a train. Why, then, has ‘computer crime’ caused so much hysteria? Perhaps because the public is so willing – eager, even – to be scared by bogeymen.”

― Charles Platt

“One of the worst things you can give to your people is someone you’re not.”

“Humans will always babble. If someone wants to tweet that they can’t decide whether to wear blue socks or brown socks, then fair enough. But when sharing becomes automated, I get the heebie-jeebies.”

― Charlie Brooker

“Ever since about 1998, when humankind began fast-forwarding through the gradually-unfolding history of progress, like someone impatiently zipping through a YouTube clip in search of the best bits, we’ve grown accustomed to machines veering from essential to obsolete in the blink of a trimester.”

― Charlie Brooker

“I’ve always had the luck or blessing that someone would say, ‘I liked what you did in that movie. I’d like you to be in my movie.’”

― Charlie Murphy

“Everything was a lot more challenging for me because of who my brother was. If I were in the film, someone would had said that I got the part because Eddie’s in the film. If I wrote a script, folks would say that I didn’t really write that: that Eddie did and I threw my name on it.”

― Charlie Murphy

“There’s a lot of ways someone can grow up, but one way is discovering your parents are not all they say they are.”

― Charlie Puth

“I actually get a lot of messages with people saying, ‘What’s a Marvin Gaye?’ and, I mean… Oh, wow. I must be getting old, because someone who was born in 2004 just asked me what a Marvin Gaye was.”

― Charlie Puth

“The younger generation watches what’s interesting, not whether it’s presented by someone who is as old as I am or someone who is as old as a 21-year-old. It’s the material. If I did a series of conversations on things most interesting to Millennials, they would respond to it, and I do.”

― Charlie Rose

“While visiting Costa Rica, I was inspired to hear that someone had donated a playground to a local school. So when I returned to L.A., one day I just called the principal of a nearby elementary school and asked what I could do. Five years later, I’ve helped make over nine schools, repainting, renovating, and fixing up playgrounds.”

“For me anyway, until I was exposed to doing improvisation and walking onto a stage without any script, I would have never felt comfortable enough to walk into a room with someone like Larry David and audition.”

― Cheryl Hines

“But one thing that’s constant is we’ve always appreciated fans. They put us on the map and they keep us on the map. I always put myself in their position. If I loved someone and had their posters all over my wall and met them and they were rude it would be very hurtful.”

― Cheryl James

“There are a lot of good things that we can do. Maybe my example can help someone.”

― Cheryl James

“I want to be known as someone who develops individuals, not just companies.”

― Chevy Chase

“I love everybody. When someone hurts, I hurt.”

― Chi Chi Rodriguez

― Chiara Ferragni

“I always felt sorry for the sidekick as a kid. They never got their due and it left a very bad taste in the mouth – they are defined by a subordinate relationship to someone else. I always felt like a bit of sidekick when I was a kid and it didn’t feel fair.”

“I think an artist, in my definition of that word, would not be someone who takes sides with the emperor against his powerless subjects. That’s different from prescribing a way in which a writer should write.”

“Finding the right person can be so hard that often, when a person finally finds someone she or he is comfortable with, she or he just makes it work.”

― Chirlane McCray

― Chirlane McCray

“In Asia, I didn’t feel like I was Chloe. I felt like I was acting like someone in Asia. I was acting like Chloe Wang, a pop star, that was like a character for me, if anything.”

“Some of the most brilliant things that someone might do could happen in three minutes because it’s something that just occurs to them. And then, there’s the example of really chipping away at something to create something great. I don’t believe that one is more reliable than the other.”

― Chris Cornell

“I definitely am a performer, and there are different styles of stand-up; I mean, some people are writers and they get onstage to get jokes out, and that’s definitely not what I do. I like to just go up and, if I’m telling a story about someone, I’ll play his or her part.”

― Chris D’Elia

“I think if someone were to ask me to put in one sentence what it is that I do, I would say that I try to be in action more than in words.”

― Chris Doubek

“As an actor, acting is like playing a sport. You do this thing that’s intangible, and while it’s happening, it’s great. But then when it’s done, there’s really no tangible product. Someone else is capturing it and turning it into something tangible.”

― Chris Pratt

“If we’re talking about someone creating something new, those rights are fairly well defined (in the United States, at least) under existing copyright law.

― Chris Squire

“The first time you listen to someone else’s interpretation of what you’ve created, it’s a little unnerving. They’ll change lyrics or something almost every time. That’s them being an artist, and you appreciate it more over time.”

― Christina Tosi

“Typically, in France, someone in my position should keep their mouth shut. I’m an entertainer, operating in the realm of pop, and it’s often looked down upon for a pop artist to take a stand, to have convictions or opinions. But I don’t think the two are incompatible or mutually exclusive.”

― Christine and the Queens

“I’m terrified of men these days. If someone asked me out now, I don’t know what I’d say, how I’d react. But I couldn’t go through with it, not at all. I suppose I’ve been terrified of them all along.”

― Christine Keeler

“I’ve learned that when someone does something very kind and refuses payment, giving them an engraved Swiss Army knife is never refused!”

“The secret to a long marriage in the film industry? Marry someone wonderful, as I did. And always have her come along on location.”

― Christopher Lee

“I was just very shy. I was never anxious to do talk shows, as I didn’t know what to say. And I don’t feel I have any inherent interest. But as I’m getting older, I feel I want to be able to share whatever I know if it means something to someone.”

― Christopher Lloyd

“I honestly never wanted to direct. It was only when I started to work on ‘Alexander the Great’ that I realized I had to direct. I saw something so specifically in my mind, I could not leave it to someone else.”

― Christopher Parker

“A hero is someone who, in spite of weakness, doubt or not always knowing the answers, goes ahead and overcomes anyway.”

― Christopher Reeve

“Mirroring is simply repeating what someone just said. It creates more reception from the other side, it focuses attention, and it gives them an opportunity to dial in more with you and you to dial in more with them. It causes an almost completely unconscious response for the person to want to go on.”

― Christopher Voss

“Consider this: Whenever someone is bothering you, and they just won’t let up, and they won’t listen to anything you have to say, what do you tell them to get them to shut up and go away? ‘You’re right.’ It works every time. But you haven’t agreed to their position. You have used ‘you’re right’ to get them to quit bothering you.”

― Christopher Voss

“The sooner you cut off negotiations with someone you shouldn’t be dealing with, it gives you the chance to move on to a more profitable deal.”

― Christopher Voss

“I’ve never crashed a wedding. When I was a kid I, of course, used to crash parties. Crashing a wedding is difficult though because you have to have the suit, and you have to have information in case someone catches you. You have to know at least some names and something.”

“I felt like I needed to be a ‘pretty girl’ for someone else. I felt like I needed to change a lot about who I actually was to be perfect for them instead of just being who I am genuinely.”

― Clairo

“There’s a difference between someone who’s ‘harsh’ and someone who is ‘hard.’ Life was hard. You lived in the South, as my grandparents did, and you had to survive. That is hard.”

― Clarence Thomas

“Writing is what we do. What else could I want in a life partner than someone who knows and shares what I do?”

― Clark Blaise

“Sometimes being an actor is being a song in someone else’s mixtape, so I really understand why more and more actors are making films of their own.”

― Clark Gregg

― Claudia Schiffer

“Be completely honest – have you ever met someone who you thought was truly clever or interesting or witty who wore fawn?”

― Claudia Winkleman

“If you can’t sell your product, it goes from being an asset to a liability. Learn to sell, partner with someone who can sell, or learn to be poor.”

“If I remember correctly, a writer is someone who wants to convey information. Language or writing is a code.”

― Clifford Geertz

“It’s always amusing to look at how something early in the 20th century was written in anthropology and how it’s written now. There’s been an enormous shift in how it’s done, but yet you can’t put your finger on someone who actually did it.”

“I said that when I looked at photographs of the firefighters who went into the Twin Towers, their faces looked to me like Irish faces. I hadn’t yet learnt how careful outsiders have to be when talking about race in America, and I’d put my foot in it. Someone stood up and said aggressively, ‘What do you mean by Irish faces?’”

― Colman Domingo

“I’m someone who just likes being in my cave and thinking up weird stuff.”

― Colson Whitehead

“I was allowed to write about race using an elevator metaphor because of Toni Morrison and David Bradley and Ralph Ellison. Hopefully, me being weird allows someone who’s 16 and wanting to write inspires them to have their own weird take on the world, and they can see the different kinds of African American voices being published.”

― Colson Whitehead

“My dad was not someone who you would strike with a billy club and he wouldn’t strike back. It just wasn’t in him.”

“I was looking for someone to formulate a skin care line I could use.”

― Connie Sellecca

“The first time I got recognized in public was at a movie theater. It was at the ‘Lord of the Rings’ movie premiere. I was at the movie theater, and someone came up, and it was so weird to me, because I had never been recognized by a viewer, so I thought that was scary.”

― Connor Franta

“What someone else does or doesn’t do has no effect on me and what I do.”

― Conor McGregor

“The young person isn’t certain that love can be real; the middle-aged man is only discovering that it is; and the older person seems so sure of it. I was interested in the way that many of us go through the whole of our lives staying with someone just out of complacency, because leaving isn’t easy.”

― Conor McPherson

“I wish, naturally to prevent the possibility that someone may write an accidental, superficial, incomplete and perhaps untrue picture of me.”

“There’s this artistic drive or something in me that impels me to sympathize with villains, but it’s maybe not a great impulse as someone who wants to do activism as well.”

“When you’re comfortable with someone, you don’t look for anyone else.”

― Danielle Bregoli

“I want to be in everything, but that’s because I haven’t seen someone who looks like me in everything. I want to play a superhero. I want to be the love interest. I want to write my own stuff and create my own projects. I want to be in French films.”

“I can imagine they’re asking for someone, and someone is asking for me. Everyone knows I keep asking for Wonderboy, and I will – I’ll keep knocking on the door.”

“Typically, my advice to young artists is not to wait for someone to allow you to do the thing. Just do the thing, and they’ll catch up.”

― Daveed Diggs

“I just heard a story from someone the other day where somebody was beaten up by Christians for wearing one of our shirts. Of course, that’s a very Christian thing to do.”

― David Amram

“Instead of putting someone in prison for being a hooligan, give him a choice. He may have beaten someone up and he’s got eight years, but tell him you can do eight years inside or spend five years in the Army. Put him in the Parachute Regiment, they’d soon sort him out.”

― David Hallberg

“One of the things about having played a lot of villains is… I don’t have the same experience of someone who maybe has been a leading man since they were 22 and therefore looks at certain things in a character to romanticize themselves. I actually very much embrace the bad stuff.”

― David Harbour

“What makes someone sexy in my mind is who they are. It’s not necessarily how they look.”

“I’m very interested in the drama of the leading man being someone who is incapable, becoming capable.”

― David Harbour

“My natural state is a state of an explorer – a performer, but someone who wants to explore their experience and reflect on their experience more than just lie on the beach.

― David Ignatius

“I don’t watch ‘The X Factor’ any more. Why do I want to see someone say the same old thing – it’s all they’ve ever dreamed about – then lose and burst into tears and go into neurosis? They just want to be famous – it doesn’t matter how.”

― David Jason

“If someone is worried about bulking up their quads, they’re not going to do a traditional squat. They’re going to do a wide-stance squat or a plie squat, which is second position dance, opening up your legs and bringing the focus to the inner thighs and not to the quads.”

― David Morse

“Do I feel I should have been given more time? Of course I do. To go to a club like Manchester United and follow someone like Sir Alex after the time he had been there, to stay for ten months… It couldn’t be a revolution at Manchester United; it had to be evolution. It had to take time.”

― David Moyes

“I would still consider myself in the elite group of managers. If it was me against someone else, I’d trust myself.”

“Every time we bring someone in we ensure that they are a strategic thinker, but even more important that they understand that if the products aren’t successful and the products don’t sell that there won’t be anything to strategize about.”

“Hollywood loves pre-validation. Even if someone has a property that was first published as a comic book that sold only 5,000 copies, for Hollywood, that is a stamp of approval. ‘Oh, it was already published in another medium? Must be good!’ They get assurance from knowing that someone else already took the risk.”

“Anytime someone orders a pastrami sandwich on white bread, somewhere a Jew dies.”

― David Sax

“I’ve been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it’s just whining, but every so often there’ll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote.

“I’ve never gone on Facebook and am not sure I understand it. The same goes for Twitter. I have someone sending tweets and pretending to be me, but I don’t know why.”

― David Sedaris

“I think there are people who are born storytellers. I think of someone like T. C. Boyle or Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I think really, without putting any pejorative on it, they’re like carnival barkers, ‘Come into the tent, and I’ll tell you this story.’”

“At only 20 years old I got married. I was still a kid myself, but in those times, if you got someone pregnant, you had no choice but to get married. So I left school and the only thing I could do was sing.”

― David Soul

“I think Varga is a manifestation, certainly, and someone who can thrive and profit from the world’s failure and has worked out the operation, whatever the operation may be, that he’s about, which will remain a mystery.”

― David Thewlis

“It’s easier not to make a particular joke in case it offends. But every joke will offend someone, and I’ve always believed that the audience is bigger than one person. The danger is that things will become bland.”

― David Walliams

“Chemistry’s a funny thing. It can be instantaneous, but it helps when you know someone.”

― David Walton

“I know that some actors take acting terribly seriously. I take it seriously in that if someone pays me to do it I know I have to deliver.”

― David Warner

“There are many tough conversations, but one of the most difficult is between a parent and an adolescent daughter, partly because as a parent we are almost always attempting to relate to someone who is no longer there.”

― David Whyte

“Denzel Washington is someone I look up to.”

― Dayo Okeniyi

“Rex Ryan is definitely a very confident individual and, when you have someone who believes firmly in what he’s speaking, you naturally absorb it.”

― D’Brickashaw Ferguson

“If I had a nickel for every time someone asked, ‘When are you doing an album?’ My career is way too transparent to do say, ‘Guess what – I’ve got 16 tracks you’ve never heard!’”

― Deadmau5

“Acting with Denzel is like playing tennis with someone that’s better than you. You either play better tennis or get blown off the court.”

― Dean Cain

“I’ve always played nice guys, so I’d love to be someone that creates a bit of confrontation. I know that sounds bad, but as an actor, I want to explore different things.”

― Dean Geyer

“As someone who grew up in tough circumstances, I know that being on public assistance is not a spot that anyone wants to be in.”

― Dean Heller

“I’d rather lose my own money than someone else’s.”

― Dean Kamen

“During holiday parties when people used to ask me what I did for a living, I would tell them I sold resort timeshares. That was an effective conversational nonstarter, until I met someone that actually did sell resort timeshares.”

― Dean Karnazes

“If someone wrote it and it had a peculiar twist, I’ve read it.”

“I never had a month or so go by where I haven’t had a job, but you always worry that someone will turn off the tap.”

― Dean Norris

“When we forgive someone, it doesn’t excuse their actions; it frees us from our own chronic stress and suffering, so it’s in our own self-interest.”

― Dean Ornish

“If you’re at high risk or are trying to reverse heart disease or prevent the recurrence of cancer, you probably need to make bigger changes in diet and lifestyle than someone who just wants to lose a few pounds and is otherwise healthy. If you just want to lower your cholesterol, weight or blood pressure, begin by making moderate changes.”

― Dean Ornish

“The thing about interviews is that if someone interviews you, and they’re an idiot, then they make you sound like an idiot, too. They ask you stupid questions, and they bring you down to their level. It’s tempting to not ever want to talk to anybody, but you can’t do that.”

― Dean Wareham

“I get sick when I think about someone going to iTunes and downloading two songs off our album. It’s not meant to be listened to that way.”

“Because you give birth, because you impregnate someone, that does not automatically give you that title of mother or father. You earn the title.”

― Debbie Rowe

“People used to say everyone knows someone who’s had breast cancer. In the past few weeks, I’ve learned something else: Everyone has someone close to them who has had breast cancer.”

― Debbie Wasserman Schultz

“A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares.”

― Debi Mazar

“I’ve always been someone who can just move. Some people in L.A. are addicted. They have to be here; they come for pilot season and stay here.”

― Debi Mazar

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

― Deborah Ann Woll

“Often, in books, I find female power to be cartoonish – power is a process, an evolution – it has responsibilities. It’s not as simple as picking up your lightning bolt and throwing it at someone.”

― Deborah Harkness

“I like missing someone and being missed; I like looking forward to seeing him again. I like getting emails and texts with lots of xxx’s.”

― Deborah Moggach

“You can’t just pill away injuries that go deep in someone. They don’t just stop those feelings from existing.”

― Debra Granik

“The time that it takes to make the feature is really contingent on the feature being sort of almost ready-made – so coming to a book is more ready-made. You at least have the story that someone sorted out.”

― Debra Granik

“Emerging actors know there’s a whole lot to learn each time they are spending with someone who’s done a lot.”

― Debra Granik

“I’m someone who’s always looking for hope – if there’s a ray of hope, a shrapnel, shred, a flake of hope – because I take the misfortune or hard times of others very seriously.”

― Debra Granik

“When I’m interested in an aspect of someone’s life, I want to ask about their experiences, their survival strategies, and what they do to keep their lives interesting.”

― Debra Granik

“My first narrative films developed out of a documentary process – finding someone who was willing to be filmed, watching, listening, taking copious notes and many hours of video footage.”

― Debra Granik

“When I look at a leader, I look at someone who is able to get exceptional performance out of others.”

― Debra L. Reed

“Just because we’re on schedule is no reason to shoot bad acting. Someone once said to me, ‘You’re inconsiderate.’ And I said, ‘Inconsiderate? Bad acting is the ultimate inconsideration.’ It’s a collective slap to a million faces at the same time.”

― Debra Winger

“Ultimately, however, the script an actor enlivens is someone else’s words.”

― Debra Winger

“I’m really lucky I’m still around. Everybody expected me to die next… But it was always someone else instead of me.”

― Dee Dee Ramone

“If I can go three grandmothers back and find a slave, that means someone else can go three grandmothers back and find a slave owner. When you interrogate your histories, it forces you to rethink who you are and where you are.”

― Dee Rees

“In an industry that’s uncertain and when you’re in a lot of situations that are anxiety-causing, to have someone there who has your back unconditionally and cares for you and the material and would give anything to make sure everything is OK, makes you feel so much better. It gives you a sense of security as an artist.”

― Dee Rees

“Not a day goes by where someone doesn’t write me asking me for more ‘Sordid Lives.’”

― Del Shores

“When someone is on the phone telling me a story, I’m hearing the soundtrack that goes with it.”

― Delilah

“When you’re a young talent, and you want to launch your brand, you always have tons of questions: Where should I produce? Should I launch a second line? Should I do shoes, accessories? If you have someone who can coach you and give you advice and help you find the right supplier, it’s a big help.”

― Delphine Arnault

“I noticed that there are no B batteries. I think that’s to avoid confusion, cause if there were you wouldn’t know if someone was stuttering. ‘Yes, hello I’d like some b-batteries.’ ‘What kind?’ ‘B-batteries.’ ‘What kind?’ ‘B-batteries!’ and D-batteries that’s hard for foreigners. ‘Yes, I would like de batteries.’”

― Demetri Martin

“I’d rather have head stomps and kicks to the head on the ground rather than elbows because I think to kick someone in the head while they’re laying on their back is very hard. Elbows are easy. You can be here, and I just cut you and won the fight.”

― Demetrious Johnson

“I used to think that what scared me was the idea of being abandoned until someone said to me, ‘Only children can be abandoned. Adults can’t be abandoned because we have a choice. Children don’t have a choice.’”

― Demi Moore

“Don’t let your wounds make you become someone you’re not.”

― Demi Moore

“It’s clear on the one hand that an education enriches and informs a response to beauty, even makes it possible in esoteric cases. On the other hand, there’s no question that someone with no musical education whatsoever might wander into a concert hall and be overwhelmed by the ‘Beethoven Pastoral Symphony’.”

― Denis Dutton

“I was probably 35 when I wrote the first story. The voice is kind of a mix in that it has a young voice, but it’s also someone who’s looking back. I like that kind of double vision.”

― Denis Johnson

“It’s highly dishonorable to ever quit a production. I never have done it, and I can’t imagine ever doing it. However, I have been in productions before where, on the first in the read-through, you feel that someone is in trouble, and indeed, actors have been let go shortly after read-throughs. I’ve seen that happen before.”

― Denis O’Hare

“I’ve never hurt a single person in my whole life – never even wanted to hurt someone.”

― Denis Shapovalov

“I’m not someone that loves dialogue – I am someone that loves movement. Action, if it’s well done, can be very poetic and meaningful.”

― Denis Villeneuve

“When I was a kid, I was always going to bed creating a story, and that was the birth of filmmaking for me. I would like going to the dream-state by telling the story to someone else in my mind. That was my imaginary friend; it was an imaginary audience listening to my story.”

― Denis Villeneuve

“You can’t always get someone where you want to with just sticks. There have to be some carrots, there have to be some other shaping things.”

― Dennis C. Blair

“Never ever discount the idea of marriage. Sure, someone might tell you that marriage is just a piece of paper. Well, so is money, and what’s more life-affirming than cold, hard cash?”

― Dennis Miller

“My interpretation of a strong director is someone who knows their story. That’s what directors are, they’re storytellers because they’re directing where your focus is going to be as an audience.”

― Dennis Quaid

“I’m not going to be the next anything. I’m going to be the first me, and someone’s going to follow, and then they’ll be the next me.”

― Denzel Curry

“I think a role model is a mentor – someone you see on a daily basis, and you learn from them.”

― Denzel Washington

“When I think about protest, I worry so much that people think about it only as standing in the streets. And I say that as someone who has been standing in the streets of cities across the country – but at the root of it is this idea of telling the truth in public.”

― DeRay Mckesson

“I feel like I have been portrayed as if I was standing outside Cipriani hoping someone picks me as their plus-one.”

― Derek Blasberg

“From making documentaries all these years, it doesn’t feel right to lead someone. In narratives, I’m always trying to shoot as though it’s really happening, and I trust my actors are going to make decisions that I’m going to be following. I want to follow them.”

― Derek Cianfrance

“When I cast someone in a movie, I have to absolutely trust who they are as a human being. Trust is the intangible of moviemaking.”

― Derek Cianfrance

“I’ve discovered new parts of my manhood, places I couldn’t get to without loving someone else unconditionally and putting others before myself.”

― Derek Fisher

“For me, a dream partner is someone who is willing to learn and to put their trust in me.”

― Derek Hough

“I wish I trusted people more. But when I meet someone, the first thing is, ‘What does this person want?’ And I put up a defense mechanism. But I’ve always been that way.”

― Derek Jeter

“I don’t think there is any such thing as a black writer or a white writer. Ultimately, there is someone whom one reads.”

― Derek Walcott

“Relationships are very good at making you more conscious of yourself. Especially as you get older, you develop a crust around your madnesses and shortcomings that take someone else to recognize them.”

― Derren Brown

“You have to realise that hypnosis doesn’t exist: it just works on people’s natural suggestibility, their expectations and capacity to unconsciously role play. You can’t make someone do anything they don’t want to do.”

― Derren Brown

“Clearly if a hypnotist could make someone to steal £100k just by telling them to, the world would be a different place, and I suspect that hypnotists wouldn’t bother doing shows in pubs or dodgy Spanish holiday resorts.”

― Derren Brown

“I like to write songs about what’s happening, what I see around me and what I hear. Everyday life. Someone may be talking to me and I may take it from that.”

― Desmond Dekker

“I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights.”

― Desmond Tutu

“As someone whose music is connected to his personal growth, I feel an obligation to follow this muse wherever it leads.”

― Devin Townsend

“Not everyone’s going to love you or what you do. Someone’s always going to complain about something.”

― Devon Windsor

“I love travelling, but I have to admit I didn’t initially take to Agra in India. As soon as you arrive, someone wants to show you around, take your bags or sell you something – and it’s just a bit of a culture shock. You just have to make the necessary mental adjustment to the setting.”

― Dexter Fletcher

“Someone recently played me ‘Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell’ by Das Racist. That should be my theme song.”

― Dhani Harrison

“Human survival is something that you can’t see in another person; you can see if someone has that will to survive or that will to win; you can’t see that, you can only watch that evolve over time.”

― Dhani Jones

“If you teach someone your craft, while you’re teaching them, you’re going to learn because you’re going to get better at teaching, which is going to make you better at whatever you’re doing.”

― Diamond Dallas Page

“I understand what it is that actors do. They embody someone that they aren’t.”

― Diana Gabaldon

“One of the great perks of being a writer is that you can work when you’re mentally capable of it, not when someone else thinks you should.”

― Diana Gabaldon

“In the old days, a star was someone up there – you know, Greta Garbo – but a telly star was somebody you could approach.”

― Diana Rigg

“I think you have to know someone to truly dislike them, don’t you? That said, I’d shove most politicians into a cauldron and boil them up.”

― Diana Rigg

“I learned something from that. If someone asks me something that I really don’t want to do, I say no. I have to trust that. And I’m not afraid to talk money.”

― Diana Ross

“If I have someone who believes in me, I can move mountains.”

― Diana Ross

“Cicadas, buckling and unbuckling their stomach muscles, yield the sound of someone sharpening scissors. Fall field crickets, the thermometer hounds, add high-pitched tinkling chirps to the jazz, and their call quickens with warm weather, slows again with cool.”

“I have yet to see one of those Comedy Central shows with multiple standup comics that doesn’t include someone the size of the Hindenburg.”

― Dick Cavett

“In relative youth, we assume we’ll remember everything. Someone should urge the young to think otherwise.”

― Dick Cavett

“If we have reason to believe someone is preparing an attack against the U.S., has developed that capability, harbours those aspirations, then I think the U.S. is justified in dealing with that, if necessary, by military force.”

― Dick Cheney

“In Presley’s time, you didn’t dare not to be a fan of his, because you were part of a club. Now you can say I prefer Billy Joel or Tina Turner or someone else. It’s all fractionalized.”

― Dick Clark

“I think that content posted to Twitter is distributed to more platforms, services, sites, online and offline than any other services out there. Would love to see if someone can prove to me otherwise.”

― Dick Costolo

“I used to be a mean maniac. Someone once threw a firecracker at a show and I jumped off the side of the stage and whacked ’em on the side of the head.”

― Dick Dale

“I’d rather have someone who tells me straight up what happens rather than sweet things that I want to hear.”

― Diego Costa

“If you pinpointed someone before the kick-off, probably you would become embroiled in a fight, and you would be distracted from what really matters and not play well.”

― Diego Costa

“The boom for luxury goods is unending. There are people who never have to worry about whether they can afford something they like. In one part of the world or another there will always be someone with money to spend on luxury.”

“It is easy to criticize me from behind a pen or a microphone, from someone who never set foot on a football field.”

― Diego Forlan

“You have to accept who you are in order to make someone happy and be happy.”

― Diego Luna

“Everywhere you look, especially on TV, someone is promising to make you rich and famous.”

― Diego Luna

“As an actor, you are always someone else’s tool. You can have a connection with them, and you can share their point of view, but ultimately, you are helping them reflect.”

― Diego Luna

“To see my country lose a football match is very hard for someone who has worn the shirt.”

― Diego Maradona

“If someone wants a picture, I’m so honored and so flattered, and I hope I have a reputation as someone who goes out of his way to do those kinds of things.”

― Dierks Bentley

“Hey, if someone is crushing on me, and it brings them out to the show, so be it!”

― Dierks Bentley

“I really love flying, but it’s really nice to jump on a plane, sit back, and let someone else do the heavy lifting, but flying is my main passion for sure.”

― Dierks Bentley

“I ask myself all the time, ‘Why keep doing this?’ If I wasn’t exploring or finding something to write about that was personal or meant something, there’d be no reason. If I was ever making a record just to make a record, or ever just like, ‘Just put something out there that someone will buy,’ I would quit.”

― Dierks Bentley

“What I was doing wasn’t good enough. It was good enough up until I met someone who was doing it properly – someone who was stronger than me and in better mental and physical condition than I was.”

― Dillian Whyte

“It was at a gym near Liverpool Street. I came off the street – I was just a kid – and I was just excited about getting to punch someone in the face.”

― Dillian Whyte

“I want one of the top three, but if they aren’t available, we’ll pick someone else. There are some good young fighters, undefeated guys, and guys with wins and losses on their record.”

― Dillian Whyte

“When someone has great qualities, sometimes they don’t have to put much effort into things.”

― Dimitar Berbatov

“I was known for being quite… ruthless at ABB. I drove hard targets, pushed my people. But I was always fair. Once I was convinced of someone, I let them handle things themselves. But if you kept doing badly, there was no place for you.”

― Dinesh Paliwal

“I’m not someone who wants to be second-guessed at all.”

― Dinesh Paliwal

“You constantly have to take inventory, not get on someone else’s agenda. You want to write something that’s poignant and moves people.”

― Dion DiMucci

“Trying to explain what community is to someone who’s never experienced it is like trying to explain what an artichoke tastes like.”

― Dion DiMucci

“Every time I want to impress someone about samples and hip-hop, I play ‘Portrait of Tracy.’ It’s one of the greatest bass players ever doing a whole composition with only the two harmonics of electric bass; then a three-second loop in it became every great R&B song in five-year intervals.”

― Diplo

“I appreciate people who are authentic. Someone who just wants to be cool, I can tell when their intentions aren’t right.”

― Diplo

“Anything that is related to my work will affect me. If someone tells me they didn’t like my performance, it will affect me.”

― Disha Patani

“Whether I’m writing the script, or someone else writes the initial draft, I’m always an actor’s director first. I always try to listen to them a lot and try to put their voices into their character.”

― Dito Montiel

“You don’t get many chances in life to make a movie, and if someone says they don’t like it, I say, ‘I do’. I’ve made records before, and if someone said it sucked, it bummed me out.”

― Dito Montiel

“When someone shows confidence in you, you want to reward it back.”

― Divock Origi

“Earlier, I thought it would be better for an actress to marry a businessman or a person from other profession, as it offers more stability. But then I realised that if I marry someone who doesn’t belong to the same industry , he wouldn’t understand my erratic schedules and also the norms of the glamour industry.”

― Divyanka Tripathi

“As a DJ I am never 100 percent in charge of the sound. The sound levels are controlled by someone at the sound board of the venue.”

― DJ Jazzy Jeff

“The idea of sitting in a booth, and having someone pay me to sign autographs, seems so gross to me.”

― DJ Qualls

“If someone stole your keys to encrypt the data, it didn’t matter how secure the algorithms were.”

― Dmitri Alperovitch

“I’ve never tried to measure myself on any scale. A person is more multifaceted than the label they often get stuck with. On the other hand someone’s whole behaviour allows you to characterise them in a certain way. This person has liberal convictions, that person has conservative ones, this person is a radical socialist, and so on.”

― Dmitry Medvedev

“I’m old enough and cranky enough now that if someone tried to tell me what to do, I’d tell them where to put it.”

“I appreciate someone who stands out and stands up for what he believes in, because that’s what I’m trying to do.”

“Doesn’t matter if I’m right or wrong – if I’m hungry or hot, I’m probably arguing with someone about something. Especially if that someone is rude.”

― Domhnall Gleeson

“There is nothing I hate more than meeting someone who has forgotten the art of conversing.”

― Dominic Cooper

“The typical user of a food bank is not someone that’s languishing in poverty: it’s someone who has a cash flow problem.”

― Dominic Raab

“I don’t think ethical people deal with intimidation as a method to achieve success. Undermining someone’s self-esteem isn’t a method to achieve success.”

― Dominique Moceanu

“Cheer for your teammates, regardless of whether they’re fast or slow, veteran or neophyte, varsity or JV. Or rally the spirits of someone who’s had a bad performance. Also, encourage stragglers during tough workouts; jog back to ‘pick up’ a runner who’s behind during a long run.”

― Don Kardong

“If I had had someone like me who had chosen to live their lives out and proud, there would be no need for the Tyler Clementis of the world.”

― Don Lemon

“When someone is in our tribe, I think it’s particularly easier for us to tell them apart, because we’re used to their facial features.”

― Don Lemon

“It’s not ideological to ask someone to stick to the question presented.”

― Don Lemon

“We ask actors to come to work ready to open a vein, to be emotionally thin-skinned. If someone screams, ‘What about my coffee?’ it’s not about the coffee; it’s because they’re working in an emotional state. It ain’t easy being an actor.”

― Don Scardino

“For a while, many years ago, my job was to get mugged. My job was to walk around Times Square trying to get a mugger to attack me so that someone else could come in and arrest the mugger.”

― Don Winslow

“I think there’s a mystery to drawing – to the weight of the lines. The sweep of a line around a corner to create an effect that someone is moving.”

― Don Wright

“Once a film is made and it exists, someone somewhere is going to watch it and that is kind of the magic of it all.”

― Donal Logue

“I’ve had someone, my assistant, type for me. I’ve done it that way for more than 50 years because I type with one finger, although quite rapidly.”

― Donald Hall

“Usually when someone says a thing is too simple, they’re saying that certain familiar things aren’t there, and they’re seeing a couple maybe that are left, which they count as a couple, that’s all.”

― Donald Judd

“We don’t naturally want to take responsibility for our lives. We want to give the responsibility to someone else. We blame them when our lives aren’t good.”

― Donald Miller

“I think that’s the true litmus test for someone who has become closer to Jesus: their heart is more loving, accepting, childlike, less believing that they have all the answers and more believing in Him.”

― Donald Miller

“One of your tasks is to separate the ‘personal’ from the ‘substantive.’ The two can become confused, especially if someone rubs the President wrong.”

― Donald Rumsfeld

“In a wristwatch, imagine the battery is in the strap and there’s a medical sensor in there connected to the internet. If someone is monitoring that, they could phone up if the user has forgotten to take some medication. This could save hundreds of dollars in medical fees later. What’s missing? It’s a stable battery.”

― Donald Sadoway

“Not too much, though there’s a certain amount of rancour and bitterness when someone tries to fire you.”

― Donald Sutherland

“We’ve gotten to a point where you can’t be a politician and actually say what you’re thinking because someone’s gonna get offended, and God forbid, like, everyone’s so sensitive now, it’s ridiculous.”

― Donald Trump, Jr.

“At the Super Bowl, when Beyonce was thrusting her hips forward in a very suggestive manner, if someone else had done that, it would’ve been a national scandal. I thought it was ridiculous.”

― Donald Trump

“Your paradigm is so intrinsic to your mental process that you are hardly aware of its existence, until you try to communicate with someone with a different paradigm.”

― Donella Meadows

“I keep telling these millennials it’s all about them to get into politics and start making things happen. They don’t care about whether or not someone is gay. They don’t care to see contraception taken away or want to even discuss it. They’re going forward, not backward.”

― Donna Brazile

“I was extraordinarily lucky. I wrote a book because I wanted to see if I could write a mystery. Someone nagged me into sending it to a contest, which it won, after which I was offered a two-book contract, thus requiring the writing of a second book.”

― Donna Leon

“No matter who you are, and no matter what you’ve accomplished, I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t still feel like they’re banging their head against some wall over something in their way.”

― Donna Lynne Champlin

“I had to learn how to become a real actor, I had to suffer and be rejected and face that 100 times just like every actor. It wasn’t like someone handed it to me.”

― Donnie Wahlberg

“I didn’t have big movie offers, or any big agents wanting to work with me. I had to go grassroots, start at the bottom and go on 150 auditions before someone finally gave me a shot.”

― Donnie Wahlberg

“I’m not trying to be someone I’m not.”

― Donny Robinson

“I didn’t realise that I was so accomplished on the guitar until someone said to me, ‘How do you do that?’ That someone was John Lennon. He asked me to teach him my technique.”

“If someone is mean, harmful, or evil, they’re out of my life. I cross them out.”

― Doris Roberts

“During the writing of all of my books, I’ve learned that, most of all, people want to know that someone is listening and – this is the tricky part – remembering.”

― Doug Stanton

“I taught myself to play the guitar by listening to Paul Simon records, working it out note by note. He is an incredibly intelligent musician. He’s not someone who has a natural outpouring of melody like McCartney or Dylan, who are just terribly prolific with musical ideas.”

― Douglas Adams

“I remember very little about writing the first series of ‘Hitchhiker’s.’ It’s almost as if someone else wrote it.”

― Douglas Adams

“I looked on IMDB, at the message boards there, and someone had posted something about a sheep having more talent than me.”

― Douglas Booth

“Sexuality is such a small part of the make-up of someone; it’s not who they are.”

― Douglas Booth

“Even to this day, when someone says something derogatory about Boy George, it still upsets and offends me. Part of me will always be quite attached to him.”

― Douglas Booth

“I think way back, the ’20s or the ’30s, when Kodak came out with the Brownie and they put a list of instructions on the box, like how to use this thing, I think someone arbitrarily said, ‘Make sure the person in the photograph is smiling.’ And we went from that one sort of set of industrial instructions to this whole culture of perkiness.”

― Douglas Coupland

“If someone decides to be a musician now, it means because there is no hope of money at the end of it, it means they really want to be a musician. And if someone is writing now, there is no hope for money at the end of it.”

― Douglas Coupland

“Never loan a book to someone if you expect to get it back. Loaning books is the same as giving them away.”

“On Facebook, your past comes into your present when someone from your second grade class suddenly pops up to send you a message, and your future is being manipulated by what Facebook knows to put in front of you next.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“As popular culture becomes more presentist, we move away from entertainment as the vicarious experience of a narrative – as watching someone else’s story – and much more toward enacting one’s own story. Moving away from myths and toward fantasy role-playing games, away from movies and toward videogames.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“Everything we do in the digital realm – from surfing the Web to sending an e-mail to conducting a credit card transaction to, yes, making a phone call – creates a data trail. And if that trail exists, chances are someone is using it – or will be soon enough.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“The cloud is still really just a bunch of servers, owned by someone or something, whose decisions and competence must be trusted. This applies to everything from Google Docs to Gmail: Putting our data out there really means putting it ‘out there.’”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“Being a salesman and an actor were not that dissimilar: It is a good lesson in covering up your feelings. No one wants to buy from someone who looks depressed.”

― Dougray Scott

“Sometimes it is easier to play someone who is far away from you.”

― Dougray Scott

“I would just say that human beings are stronger together. Relying on someone else is not a sign of weakness; it shows strength that you’re able to accept that you need help.”

― Drew Carey

“On the Internet, news is consumed a la carte. If someone shows up on the main page of a website and doesn’t see anything of interest, they leave. This negatively impacts ad revenues. The solution on the Internet is to pack news websites full of things that will draw people in, regardless of whether they are news or not.”

― Drew Curtis

“As a scholar, you don’t want to repeat yourself, ever. You’re supposed to say it once, publish it, and then it’s published, and you don’t say it again. If someone comes and gives a scholarly paper about something they’ve already published, that’s just terrible. As a university president, you have to say the same thing over and over and over.”

― Drew Gilpin Faust

“There will be a Skype movie soon… someone will crack the code, and it will be great. Then, there’ll be 30 Skype movies, and we’ll be like, ‘Oh, that’s boring.’”

― Dua Lipa

“You can’t see fear or lust; you can’t photograph someone’s anxieties, how disappointment feels. Photographs are approximations.”

“I sometimes think if I had gone to Oxford or Cambridge and looked like a handsome young guy who could be in an Evelyn Waugh novel or something, I’d be a massive movie star. But there’s a longevity to what I do. It’s more reliable. Someone isn’t deciding that I’m the next big thing.”

― Eddie Marsan

“The advice I would give to someone is to not take anyone’s advice.”

― Eddie Murphy

“I’m 42 and the age of a guy who has kids, so I guess I’m playing right where I’m supposed to be. I’m comfortable with that, but in the same breath I’d do something edgy. If someone came to me and offered me an edgy and funny story, then I’d do it.”

― Eddie Murphy

“As someone who gets nervous in silences, I spill words rather than really think.”

― Eddie Redmayne

“If you are playing someone living, it is a different type of judgment. However much work you do, it is not a documentary. There will be things you can’t get right, and ultimately, you have to take a leap because – you weren’t there.”

― Eddie Redmayne

“One of the things that happens to everyone who is grief-stricken, who has lost someone, is there comes a time when everyone else just wants you to get over it, but of course you don’t get over it. You get stronger; you try and live on; you endure; you change; but you don’t get over it. You carry it with you.”

― Edward Hirsch

“There are nuclear weapons in China, Iran, Korea and Pakistan. It wouldn’t take much to send a couple of warheads off on this planet somewhere that would cause a lot of environmental damage, then if you have got someone who wants to retaliate you have real problems.”

― Elbert Hubbard

“I started out pursuing an acting career out of college when I lived in Los Angeles. When I got an entry into broadcasting, I preferred it. I liked being me, rather than dressing up to be someone else. Now I’m 30 and doing a career of my own and have been in this career for eight years.”

“I had wanted to write ‘The Possessed’ as fiction, but everyone told me that no one would read a novel about graduate students. It seems almost uncivilized to tell someone writing a novel, ‘No, you have to call this a memoir.’”

― Elif Batuman

“The elite private tutor is typically ivy-educated and falls into one of two categories – a twenty-something pursuing an artistic career on the side, or someone older who has made a career out of college-prep. They are presentable, well-spoken, and are treated by doormen as guests more than as employees.”

― Eliot Schrefer

“As someone who attended six different public schools across America, went to Harvard, and subsequently became a tutor in Manhattan’s affluent Upper East Side, I’ve witnessed firsthand the differences in learning styles between public school educations and private.”

― Eliot Schrefer

“Whether it’s a blessing or a curse, I have always played someone like 10 years younger. When I was 23 or 24, I was playing 15 opposite Evan Rachel Wood in a movie called ‘Pretty Persuasion.’ She was 16 and nobody in a million years would have thought I was that much older than her.”

“I wish I were shyly, quietly intriguing, like Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, like someone French and fashionable who knows how to twirl her ladylike locks just so and walk adroitly on kitten heels, who is all gesture and whisper – but I am unfortunately forward and forthright: When I am interested in a man, he absolutely knows it.”

“It’s almost embarrassing, but I do have one trick for taking portraits on commission. I carry one of these little bicycle horns in my pocket, and once in a while, when someone is sour-faced or stiff, I blow my horn. It sort of shatters the barriers. It’s silly, but it works.”

“If I went to somewhere busy, I wouldn’t last very long. I can’t go to a museum – I’ll last 10 or 15 minutes in a museum. The problem is that when one person asks for a photograph, then someone sees a flash goes off, then everyone else sort of… it’s sort of like a domino effect.”

― Emraan Hashmi

― Eric Cantona

“People saw me as being heroic, but I was no more heroic than I was with other injuries I had, like the lacerated kidney I suffered during the 1990 World Series. It’s just that people haven’t known anyone with a lacerated kidney, but everyone can relate to someone with cancer.”

― Eric Davis

“I remember in 1990, there were five of us making $3 million a year. When guys passed us, we didn’t cry. Why would we cry? You didn’t get mad when someone got $6 million. Or $8 million.”

“When someone at the State Department proclaims Facebook to be the most organic tool for promoting democracy the world has ever seen – that’s a direct quote – it may help in the short run by getting more people onto Facebook by making it more popular with dissidents.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“As smart technologies become more intrusive, they risk undermining our autonomy by suppressing behaviors that someone somewhere has deemed undesirable.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“The situation around Terri Schiavo was a deeply held conflict over what to do if someone isn’t going to return to consciousness or competence. Who will decide? Even there, where we had settled legal rules, we still had disagreement. We’re torn about these things.”

“It ought to be illegal for an artist to marry. If the artist must marry let him find someone more interested in art, or his art, or the artist part of him, than in him. After which let them take tea together three times a week.”

― Ezra Pound

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”

― Ezra Pound

“Some prideful people are not so concerned as to whether their wages meet their needs as they are that their wages are more than someone else’s. Their reward is being a cut above the rest. This is the enmity of pride.”

― Ezra Taft Benson

“Everybody comes to film differently; everybody has different backgrounds. Just find whatever your lane is naturally. Don’t try to force yourself into someone else’s vision or try to tell a story that you’re not passionate about.”

― F. Gary Gray

“I grew and learned, journeyed and understood, that someone who is afraid of failing won’t get anywhere, and someone who dares to do it runs the risk of failure if they don’t learn, correct their mistakes, and get back up.”

“I was amazed to realize that for many Westerners, Scheherezade was considered a lovely but simple-minded entertainer, someone who relates innocuous tales and dresses fabulously. In our part of the world, Scheherezade is perceived as a courageous heroine and is one of our rare female mythological figures.”

― Fatema Mernissi

“I was not getting work, even after auditioning for films. So I started working in a studio as a photographer; I assisted a cinematographer for two ads.

“Actors and directors work on things together. That’s how I like to work, anyway. I don’t want to be told what to do. I want to share it with someone and work it out together.”

“What I find is that it’s the middle-aged authors who have lived a life who have the most important, interesting voices. They just need someone to give them the key to unlock the door.”

“For those who turn to literary biography for salacious details, ‘Flannery’ will disappoint. It is the biography of someone who had very little chance to live in the conventional sense, to experience events.”

“The front of a cheque alone gives someone enough information to steal your identity.”

― Frank Abagnale

“I’m so different from the egotistical, self-centred person I was when I did those things. And to watch someone acting out your memories on the screen is like reliving it. Like someone taking you back and showing you what you did.”

― Frank Deford

“It costs a lot of money to deliver newsprint. It’s so much easier to do it through the air, Internet, radio, television. The second easiest thing is to do it through the mail. But when you have to take something heavy and put it on someone’s doorstep, that costs a lot of money.”

“’Comic book’ has come to mean a specific genre, not a story form, in people’s minds. So someone will call ‘Die Hard’ a ‘comic-book movie,’ when it has nothing to do with comic books. I’d rather have comics be the vehicle by which stories are told.”

“For someone in my position, there’s opportunities to be anything you want to be, even if you shouldn’t be eligible, and I think that’s left a bad taste in a lots of financers’ and studios’ mouths. Just cause someone’s popular at one thing, letting them do the other isn’t always the right thing.”

“It’s critical – that the people that are benefiting today from Medicare and Social Security that they not see benefit reductions. It’s awfully hard to tell someone who might be 82, that they’ve gotta go back to work, because their benefits are gonna be chopped. That’s not gonna happen.”

― Gail Collins

“People in grief need someone to walk with them without judging them.”

“A real New Yorker is always someone who came here from somewhere else to avoid some kind of persecution, often sexual-preference based, or to be discovered in one of the infinite-though-no-longer-thriving alternative scenes, i.e. theater, music, dance, vaudeville, art, drag, or, in those of the greatest egos, to be ‘the next Andy Warhol.’”

― Genesis P-Orridge

“The first thing I say when someone says they want to be an actor is, ‘Go get ‘Backstage.’ You know what’s going on, you know who’s doing what, and there’s work that you can find in there. It’s an incredible resource, and there’s nothing else like it.”

― Geoffrey Canada

“My father was an entomologist who believed in continental drift. In the early ’50s, that was regarded as nonsense. It was in the mid-’50s that it came back. Someone had thought of it 30 or 40 years earlier named Alfred Wegener, and he never got to see it come back.”

“Do I want someone to get more hits than me? No. Do I want someone to hit more home runs than me? No. Do I want someone to have more RBI than me? No. I get a kick out of seeing the all-time leaders and my name’s on top of every one, with the exception of strikeouts. I get a kick out of that.”

― George Foreman

“When I step into the ring with someone, this has got to be their vacation spot, but my home turf. So I go the opposite side seven rounds doing the same thing. Skipping, skipping, skipping. Then I go seven rounds going both ways. Skip to the left, skip to the right.”

― George Foreman

“I think the 24-hour news cycle has helped exaggerate the differences between the parties. You can always find someone on TV somewhere carping about something. That didn’t happen 20 years ago.”

“We have lots of Neanderthal parts around the lab. We are creating Neanderthal cells. Let’s say someone has a healthy, normal Neanderthal baby. Well, then, everyone will want to have a Neanderthal kid. Were they superstrong or supersmart? Who knows? But there’s one way to find out.”

“Never apologise for not being someone else. You’re bound to find something you’re good at, even if it’s only writing stories.”

― Geraldine McCaughrean

“Writing is writing to me. I’m incapable of saying no to any writing job, so I’ve done everything – historical fiction, myths, fairy tales, anything that anybody expresses any interest in me writing, I’ll write. It’s the same reason I used to read as a child: I like going somewhere else and being someone else.”

“’Man Down”s my absolute priority. If they give me another series, I’ll throw everything into it because I really like the characters. But after that, I’ll certainly be getting back on stage because I haven’t done a proper gig for two years. Which is ridiculous for someone who loves it so much.”

The agent who took the call knew someone who knew someone who was ex-Army, trained in personal protection. The resulting introduction was one of the best, most enduring friendships I’ve ever enjoyed.”

“If you want someone else to do a task, don’t do it yourself.”

“My diet doesn’t change regardless of whether or not I’m competing. It’s not that strict, either. I try not to eat too much dessert or too many sugary things, like bread or pasta. But I’m not crazy, and I’ll eat pasta if that’s what someone if making. It’s all about trying to find a balance and eat healthy.”

“Newspapers are not free and they never have been. They can appear to be so, but someone, somewhere is covering the costs whether that is through advertising, a patron’s largesse or a license fee.

“I don’t take on projects that are a hassle or when someone comes in and says, ‘We really need this design,’ and I’m like, ‘OK, fine, I’ll do it.’ It really has to be something that I personally feel intrigued and excited about – any product, as long as I’m excited by it. It doesn’t have to be a car.”

“Imagine someone so infatuated by a band that they have every different pressing of every album the band made. Most of the time, the only difference in the album is the matrix number or a different ‘made in’ notation on the back cover or label. This is enough to make some people extremely excited. Actually, much more than excited.”

“If someone said, ‘You can go live in this little town in Costa Rica for a couple of weeks and all you’ve got to do is sing for us,’ I would do that.

Something that kids will do a lot is, they’re so nervous, and they’re not really paying attention, so they’ll ask the same question someone just asked. And you’re trying to be nice and not embarrass them any more than they are already.”

― James Patterson

“One of the things I think we’re learning to do as the twelfth insight emerges is to be discerning without being judgmental, because condemning someone certainly feels like a comic event that brings other things back on you.”

― James Tobin

“When you sit down and see someone play at a piano, you don’t think, ‘Wow – what a fantastic machine.’”

― James Turrell

“I always felt that what is scary is actually hearing someone tell you what they think they see. That sense of invisibility makes things a lot scarier, since your imagination tends to fill in the gaps.”

― James Wan

“Broadway purists may deplore the influx of movie-spinoff musicals in recent years, wishing someone would turn off the popcorn machine and let more imaginative brainstorms blow through.”

― Jane Lynch

“In life, when stuff happens the instinct is to close off your heart. By leaving your heart open, it leaves room for someone else to come in.”

― Jane Seymour

“If you ask someone if they like music, they look at you strangely. It seems to be a universal given. Like asking someone if they like breathing. It is like breathing. Or air, rather. Flowing without and within. A matrix within which our lives are set. The setting for the tableware of our beings.”

― Jane Siberry

“I’ve always loved acoustic music because I’ve always loved to hear someone’s words or just watch them and just get into them. The distancing thing about rock is it’s so assaulting.”

“To me, a critic is someone who gets paid for their opinion, and they’re entitled to that opinion but I don’t really put a lot of stock into their opinion. I’m going to cut the kind of records and the kind of songs that I like, and the kind of things that I enjoy doing. If critics dig it, that’s fine, if they don’t, that’s fine.”

“I read an interview where someone said, ‘It’s a shame that anyone can make a movie now,’ and I feel the exact opposite.”

― Jason Blum

“The real scares on CNN, etc. and the scares in a movie, like ‘The Purge,’ are totally different. One of the ways you can tell when someone, whether it’s a film maker or executive or producer, wants to make a scary movie but doesn’t understand that distinction is they’ll want to recreate too much of what’s on TV.”

― Jason Blum

“I don’t want someone taking half a sentence or paraphrasing me… Just too much risk.”

― Jason Isbell

“With as much media as there is out there, there’s always something that someone says that’s stupid that you can make fun of.”

― Jason Katims

“Someone gave me great advice. That when you’re looked on as a pioneer, or you start a trend, you’re not always going to benefit from it.”

― Jason Momoa

“Emilia Clarke is someone I’m very close to, like a sister, and I love her very much.”

― Jason Momoa

“This is a unique legal loophole in the U.S.: If a non-native comes on a reservation and commits any crime, the non-native should be prosecuted by a federal court. Tribal law can arrest and hold someone for a year, but tribal law cannot prosecute non-natives. So since the federal courts are so overloaded, some of the cases get tossed out.”

― Jason Momoa

“Look at someone like Edward Norton. A truly phenomenal actor. He’s definitely went to school and trained.”

― Jason Statham

“Some of my best experiences are with writer/directors. Guy Ritchie is one. I feel they have a clearer view of what they want to do. They haven’t got to try and interpret someone’s writing; it’s all theirs. I really admire that.”

― Jason Statham

“At least in making an action film, there’s always going to be someone who wants to see a car chase. Even if a lot of the people don’t like it, there will be a lot of people that do. But bad comedy is just garbage.”

― Jason Statham

“There’s so much more danger in someone where you really don’t know what they’re going to do, and you don’t know what they’re really capable of, rather than someone who’s trying to be physically tough.”

― Jason Statham

“When I was a kid, the people that used to push other people around, if someone whacked them, then they wouldn’t be pushing people around again. But you can’t really do that with adults.”

― Jason Statham

“You should never assume about someone.”

― Jason Statham

“My real name is Bob Davis, but for some reason, I got the name Jasper while playing football at the local rec when I was nine years old, and it just stuck. Years later, when someone asked ‘Jasper who?’ I just said ‘Carrott’ – but I have no idea why I came out with that particular word.”

― Jasper Carrott

“I’m not sure my books would translate into movies very easily. So rather than have someone do a terrible job, I haven’t been willing to sell them.”

“When you have someone better ahead of you, you accept it and try to turn the situation around.”

― Javier Mascherano

“I was incredibly impressed with HOTorNOT, because it was the first time that someone had designed a website where anyone could upload content that everyone else could view. That was a new concept because up until that point, it was always the people who owned the website who would provide the content.”

― Jawed Karim

“There’s no way to know exactly what someone’s dealing with, no matter how open you are. You’re just never going to know everything.”

― Jay Chandrasekhar

“It takes a year for us to generate a script that is ready to shoot. There are maybe 20 drafts of a script. And, each time, someone saying ‘I don’t really love this,’ we discuss it for 15 minutes.”

― Jay Chandrasekhar

“I’m not against entertainment: if someone wants to read nonsense-mongers, let them, but I resent the appearance of parity between two articles on an issue as serious as climate change when one article is actually gibberish masked in pseudoscience and the other is well informed and accurate.”

― Jay Griffiths

“When Gore Vidal was coming up, there were three major channels, and he could count on a big audience when he debated someone like William F. Buckley on TV.”

“Someone at Tidal came to our show in New York in 2016, and I guess he was expecting, like, K-Pop. But he was surprised: he saw we were doing R&B and hip hop authentically.”

― Jay Park

“You need to begin to network with angels and VCs while you are still ideating. It is easier to ask someone you know for funding than a stranger. Build your financial network by attending as many industry functions and reaching out for advice from experts online.”

― Jay Samit

“I am against discrimination of any kind, but if I make snap judgments, no matter who it’s towards, aren’t I committing the same sin as someone who profiles?”

“I just think Trump’s character and some of his values makes him unfit to lead. For someone like him to be president and in charge of our troops? It’s scary, to be honest.”

― Jaylen Brown

“Jane Lynch is incredibly quick-witted, very intelligent, and extremely humorous. Also, on top of that all, just a very wonderful, warm, kind person. She’s definitely someone to look up to.”

“With *NSYNC, we shopped our deal for a year in America, sang a capella in everybody’s office, then moved to Germany for almost two years and became popular there. A guy representing a rock band came to our show in Budapest, saw 60,000 people get excited for a band from America that nobody in America knew, and told someone at RCA.”

― Jean Dujardin

“My first three novels were all the subjects of intensely exciting flurries of calls from producers and even stars’ production companies, and once someone actually hired a screenwriter to adapt one of my books – but it all came to nothing, so I tried not to get too excited when a Hollywood suitor came calling for ‘Admission,’ my fourth novel.”

“For someone who has been so important to my career, I have had absolutely no interaction with O.J. Simpson one-on-one in my whole life. I’ve tried many times. I have written him in prison, I’ve had other contact … but he never responded, so I have never had a conversation with O.J. Simpson, never met the guy.”

“You can’t blame someone for not knowing what his or her job should be if you don’t ask for it right off the bat.”

“Once I decided I was happy with something, I’d try to send it off into the world, and either someone would want it exactly as it was, or it would remain in my notebook/laptop, and no one would ever see it. This is probably why I didn’t work with an editor until I was 26. The solipsism!”

“If someone’s off their line, they’re off their line.”

― Jill Ellis

“There’s no point in using someone else’s characters if you’re going to turn them into your own vision. You have to be loyal to that person’s worldview and sensitive to what they would and wouldn’t have done with their characters, and how explicit or inexplicit they would’ve been.”

― Jill Scott

“I like being a storyteller. I’m bored with myself; I like to write about others. I have a lot of names in my songs: Karen, Margaret, Mary Kay. Even if it’s about me, I want to put it through someone else. The music is the soundtrack to the story.”

― Jill Sobule

“I don’t have a type. I’ve dated so many different types, different personalities, different looks – from athletic to very non-athletic. The only thing I have to have is someone who is really motivated in life and challenges me. If I don’t have that, I get bored.”

― Jimmer Fredette

“Maybe it’s my freak flag that, when I go to a haunted mansion, I would rather blend in with them and be part of the story rather than have someone jump out at me. To be part of the fantasy seems way more interesting to me, to embed myself in there and just drop in, in that way.”

― Joan Didion

“When I was in fact a child, six and seven and eight years old, I was utterly baffled by the enthusiasm with which my cousin Brenda, a year and a half younger, accepted her mother’s definition of her as someone who needed to go to bed at six-thirty and finish every bite of three vegetables, one of them yellow, with every meal.”

― Joan Rivers

“I will only praise someone who can’t take anything away from me.”

― Joan Rivers

“When you have a lot of communication online before you go out with someone, it builds up a false sense of who the person is. There’s a tendency to fill in the blanks with positive information.”

― Joanna Coles

“People avoid the telephone because it’s easier to text. Calls can be awkward – you interrupt each other; you can’t quite hear someone. But the advantage is you get to hear someone else’s voice. You find out whether or not you can have a fluid conversation or if it’s stilted and peculiar.”

“Jiu Jitsu is probably the No. 1 activity that I could recommend to someone to improve their lives overall.”

― Jocko Willink

“The goal of jiu-jitsu in self-defense isn’t to take someone down to the ground – the goal in jiu-jitsu for self-defense is actually to be able to defend yourself on the ground, get up, and get away from an attacker. That’s what the goal is.”

― Jocko Willink

“If someone attacks me, and they want to punch or kick me, I can just run away. They’re not holding onto me. I can get away from them.”

― Joe Gibbs

“The scary thing is that players have a one-upsmanship about money; they sign a contract and they like it until someone signs a bigger one and now they don’t like it. I don’t like that. I don’t begrudge anyone money, but it disrupts the football team.”

But it had nothing to do with his skin colour.”

“A wingnut is someone on the far-right wing or far-left wing of the political spectrum – the professional partisans, the unhinged activists and the paranoid conspiracy theorists. They’re the people who always try to divide rather than unite us.”

― John Battelle

“If someone is being very cheeky, it can be quite fun to deal with that situation.”

― John Bercow

― John Berger

“They have called Operation Iraqi Freedom a war of choice that isn’t part of the real war on terror. Someone should tell that to al Qaeda.”

― John Carney

“I’m not trying to brainwash my critics. If they’re critics, they’re critics, and that’s their job to be critical, but I certainly enjoy the involvement I have with my fans. I enjoy the time I get to spend with them, and I don’t waste time with someone stubborn who is not going to come around.”

― John Cena

“Anytime you open your mouth there’s going to be someone who’s put off. I try to deal with that by keeping the topical portions of my show brief. I realize that some people wish my comments were briefer.”

― John Hall

“I do all kinds of roles – nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho, nerd, psycho – and occasionally someone kind of normal. It’s weird, when I lived in Austin I was always cast as pretty normal people. But when I moved to Los Angeles I was immediately branded a psycho.”

“I had no idea that social networking would be as prominent as it is today. And it’s important to understand what that phenomenon is. If you text someone, you get an immediate response; if you e-mail them, you probably never hear from them.”

― John Morgridge

“The Miz is someone who people are usually like, ‘I can’t believe how well he’s doing. I can’t believe this. I can’t believe that.’ But to me, he’s someone who really always defined what it takes to becomes a successful public persona and in-ring entertainer, and to me, that’s being authentic.”

― John Morrison

“There are lots of similarities between being a writer and a lawyer: to tell a story to a jury, hold their attention, make them laugh, make them like you. But what makes being a barrister less satisfying than being a writer is, finally, that it’s about what someone else wants you to say.”

― John Mortimer

“Whenever someone like a plumber or a mechanic tries to explain something technical to me, I listen for about three seconds before it all just becomes white noise, like Charlie Brown’s teacher.”

― John Oliver

“My family is from Liverpool, so I have some of those vowel sounds, I’ve got the slack tone of someone from Birmingham, and then I was raised in Bedford, which is just north of London. So my accent, if it’s possible, makes even less sense to a Brit than to an American.”

― John Oliver

― John Oliver

“In my love-challenged condition, seeing a difficulty for someone else can leave me feeling a little more smug or superior-by-comparison.”

“The question isn’t if someone will sign up for spiritual formation; it’s just who and what our spirits will be formed by.”

“If you put someone in a room with no script to direct, they’re just going to sit there. Writing scripts is the execution for a show. Then the director takes that and hires people. It’s like trying to build a house without any bricks. You need the script. I could build the house, but I have to know how.”

― John Patrick Shanley

“The Christian – the biblical – concept of mercy toward wrongdoers only exists in relation to justice. Showing mercy, in relation to wrongdoing, means treating someone better than they deserve.”

― John Quelch

“I started improvising the Cliff character, based on someone I grew up with.”

― John Ratzenberger

“With comics, you don’t have to worry so much about budgetary constraints. In film and television, however fanciful you want to be, someone can come up to you and go, ‘Okay, this is going to cost X amount of dollars, and we only have so many days to film this.’ With graphic novels, you can have that alien invasion you’ve always wanted to see.”

“Memories are just stories we tell ourselves about our past; and that’s often why they don’t match when we’ve shared the same experiences with someone.”

― John Slattery

“I’ve done a lot of pilots. A lot of shows. You’re young and you do a job just because you know someone gave you a job.”

― John Slattery

“When I was coming up, everybody wanted to be Tom Hanks. There was always Robert De Niro and Al Pacino – they were the heavily dramatic stuff. I always had a foot in both camps. The hardest thing was to resist the advice to be like someone else. It took me a while to figure that out.”

― John Slattery

“I once dated someone who worked at McDonald’s. She came up and asked if I wanted a Big Mac.”

― John Stamos

“I was always the kid dribbling the ball on the sidelines, hoping someone would pick me. I’d go with my older brother to the gym or park, and when I went out there, I’d pass the ball so I could get picked again.”

― John Stockton

“Politicians are usually the first to forget that if you assume someone else is acting in bad faith, they will do the same to you. Questioning motives poisons the well.”

― John Sununu

“The church acknowledges some Scientologists choose to sever communications with family members who leave. The church says it is a fundamental human right to cease communication with someone. It adds disconnection is used against expelled members and those who attack the church.”

― John Turturro

“I like someone who has a little bad boy in them, a little edge.”

― John Varvatos

“I think the record industry has gotten to be more about labels wondering what the new single is rather than labels nurturing artists. It’s gotten away from making a full album of music that someone would want to listen to all the way through.”

― John Varvatos

“Always be prepared if someone asks you what you want for Christmas. Give brand names, the store that sells the merchandise, and, if possible, exact model numbers so they can’t go wrong. Be the type who’s impossible to buy for, so they have to get what you want.”

― John Waters

“A hair-hopper is someone who pretends they’re rich, who really wasn’t brought up very wealthy but now tries to brag that they’re rich, and they spend too much time on their hair.”

― John Waters

“I grew up in a family that was very barbed and difficult, and there was a lot of humor. None of it was painless humor. All of it was at someone else’s expense. It was kind of always about power.”

― John Zorn

“If someone is a straight jazzhead, or a straight metalhead, or straight classical, they have a very narrow range of what they allow into their lives. But the people who listen to what we put out into the world have to be open-minded. Because we’re so pluralist.”

― Karen Fukuhara

“I adore actors/actresses that have range: someone that can transform into a character that is far beyond who they truly are. Charlize Theron and Johnny Depp are amazing at this.”

― Karen Fukuhara

“Someone who can write aphorisms should not fritter away his time in essays.”

― Karl Kraus

“When you use the form of a novel, and you say ‘I,’ you are also saying ‘I’ for someone else. When you say ‘you,’ you are simultaneously in your room writing and in the outside world – you are seeing and being seen seeing, and this creates something slightly strange and foreign in the self.”

― Karthik Subbaraj

“We considered a few Bollywood actors as well for the villain role in ‘Jigarthanda,’ but we finally zeroed in on Simha because we felt he would be the most unexpected person to play it. Had we cast someone popular, then it would have become predictable.”

― Karthik Subbaraj

“If one makes a short film with reasonable technical finesse, it will cost between Rs. 50,000 and Rs. one lakh. That’s a lot of money for someone starting off.”

― Katherine Kelly

“Being depressed is not a beautiful tragedy – it’s hell and it’s agony. Posting photos of someone that you don’t have the consent for is illegal, and that’s a huge, huge issue. We need to be teaching consent, and that’s not just for photos.”

“I was bullied; I was kind of a girl in the corner. So acting was a great outlet for me by pretending to be someone else.”

― Kaya Scodelario

“My all-time favorite is Brad Pitt in ‘Interview with the Vampire.’ He’s so sexy. I’m a fan of anything he does, but in that film he’s a vampire who doesn’t want to feed. There’s something super sexy about someone who has to feed to survive but doesn’t want to do it.”

― Kayla Ewell

― Keala Settle

“It doesn’t matter if you’re a Victoria’s Secret model or you’re someone’s 90-year-old grandma or you’re a little kid who’s getting bullied or you’re that kid’s bully – everybody feels like there’s something going on that’s more correct than what is.

― Kehlani

“I think it’s perfectly fine and interesting to have someone get married at a young age and have kids at a young age.”

― Keiko Agena

“The strange thing about being an actor is it’s almost a little dangerous to invest in an idea. I think once you invest in the idea of where someone is going, then you’re not fully open to being able to play the opposite of that if that’s what the character is going to do.”

― Keiko Agena

“If someone is lying to you, they’ll generally look up to the top right. That means that they’re trying to construct an image that doesn’t exist.”

“Everyone has someone they looked up to. Mine was Mickey Mantle. For Alex Rodriguez to idolize me coming up, that makes me feel very good.”

― Keith Hernandez

“I grew up in Harlem Grant projects, and I didn’t have a whole lot then. I’ve always been good about only getting what I need, not what I want. Just because someone else has something, I don’t feel the need to.”

“I think if someone gets kicked in the face it is their fault – they watched the foot come towards their face.”

― Lake Bell

“I feel that being an actor is a front-row seat into seeing how everybody else makes their movies. Basically, being in the trenches for ten years is like a college-level course in filmmaking if not more. It feels like every director I work with and every set that I visit as an actor, I see someone else’s definition of filmmaking.”

― Lake Bell

“I’ve been fortunate to get involved with ‘Short Term 12.’ I was just a young teenager on the Internet, clicking on anything that had the word ‘actor’ in it. One day, someone called me in for a movie audition.”

― Larry King

“We’re at maybe 1% of what is possible. Despite the faster change, we’re still moving slow relative to the opportunities we have. I think a lot of that is because of the negativity… Every story I read is Google vs someone else. That’s boring. We should be focusing on building the things that don’t exist.”

“I’m not someone who likes to have my picture taken, let alone see it plastered all over the place.”

“If I saw my friend’s boyfriend flirting with someone else, I would definitely talk to him about what I saw. I would want to give him a chance to explain. However, depending on how major the flirting was, I would probably mention it to my friend – just to let her know what’s going on.”

― Laura Marano

― Laurel Clark

“I’ve never acted, but I’m an entertainer. So I kind of used what I know from being onstage. I’ve done a thousand and two interviews, and I’ve been on camera a million times, so I’m not uncomfortable on camera, but it was interesting for me to be someone else.”

“A choreographer deals with the movement that you create, and with a creative director it’s about the story, the stage, the lighting, the costuming, executing someone’s idea, choosing how far to go or how little to go, and blending it so that you feel it, you’re emotionally effected.”
