I sing around the house, in the shower.

Had Out

My brother Art was a doo-wopper. He had a group that sat out on a park bench in New Orleans and sang harmonies at night, and they'd go around and win all the talent shows and get all the girls, you know.

- Aaron Neville

Very About

I'm very physical. When I'm writing, I'm playing all the parts; I'm saying the lines out loud, and if I get excited about something - which doesn't happen very often when I'm writing, but it's the greatest feeling when it does - I'll be out of the chair and walking around, and if I'm at home, I'll find myself two blocks from my house.

- Aaron Sorkin

See Year

I'm from Philadelphia, and I go to Philly a bunch throughout the holidays, which is my only time to see my family, so we get pretty festive around that time of year. It's also the only time I have vacation.

- Abbi Jacobson

Beginning Turn

The more I support with my economic plans the building of a middle class, the quicker they're going to turn around and say, 'Hey, we want a bigger say in things.' So, I knew what I was getting into right at the beginning. It's the right thing to do.

- Abdullah II of Jordan

Get

I do get around. Geographically, that is.

- Abigail Washburn

Quick Been

I mean, we sit around and we go, you know, 'Torture doesn't work.' Well, it's been around for 5,000 years. Most stuff that doesn't work goes the way of the dodo pretty quick, like waterbeds and 8-tracks and things like that.

- Adam Carolla

Always Had

As long as I can remember, growing up we had a guitar around our house, and I was always plucking on it.

A 'free and open' Internet has been an article of faith in and around Mountain View, Menlo Park, and its environs for two decades.

Speed Run

Favorite Bat-gadget was probably the Batboat, because it was fun to get out on the ocean and run that thing around at high speed.

- Adam West

South Stereotypical

If I hadn't left South Africa, I felt I was at risk of being pigeonholed. I looked around and saw actors who, 10 to 15 years into their careers, were still playing stereotypical Afrikaans characters, stereotyped Indian characters. That was not something that I wanted for myself.

- Adhir Kalyan

Young Like

When I was young, around 5, I was crying in all the pictures of me. I did not like the flash; it scared me!

- Adriana Lima

Almost Roles

The problem of sexism is getting better, but I don't know if it's getting better fast enough. We see more roles for women that don't entirely revolve around the way in which they function in a man's life, but typically those women are almost always white, and even then, there are only a few of them.

- Aja Naomi King

Got Comic Books

Kids are no longer interested in reading comic books; they've got television and the electronic games that they can bury themselves in like ostriches. They don't have to pay attention to what's going on in the world around them.

- Al Feldstein

Him Died

There was one theory put forth by a journalist recently. I have a lot of friends that have died prematurely and a lot of friends that have died of natural causes. I've lost a lot of people over the years. This journalist basically recommended to me that God keeps me around because I amuse him.

- Al Jourgensen

Relaxed Willing

The claims I'm making for art are simply the claims that we naturally make around music or around poetry. We're much more relaxed around those art forms. We're willing to ask, 'How could this find a place in my heart?'

- Alain de Botton

Log Flavors

The most classic French dessert around the holidays is the Christmas log, with butter cream. Two flavors. Chocolate and coconut. My first job in the kitchen when I was a boy was to make these Christmas logs.

Mind Him

No, no, I didn't know him. He lost his mind around 1917 because of the tragedy of the Armenians.

- Alan Hovhaness

Life Your

Life is a lot more interesting if you are interested in the people and the places around you. So, illuminate your little patch of ground, the people that you know, the things that you want to commemorate. Light them up with your art, with your music, with your writing, with whatever it is that you do.

- Alan Moore

Him Had

He means as much as Roberto Clemente does to Latin people. Thank God I had the opportunity to know him. I wish my kids had the opportunity to be around him, because that's how I want my kids to live their lives. I want them to be like Stan Musial. Not the baseball player. The person. That's the respect I have for that man.

- Albert Pujols

Learning Down

I carry around a black leather Moleskine journal all the time. And I always write ideas down, especially when I'm on set and working with actors like Jeremy Irons and Viola Davis and learning from them.

Union Less

The State of the Union is less written than it is designed, structured and organized around applause prompts and camera cues.

Feel Exhilarating

Well, I'd say all of us are a combination of moods and emotions. In my day to day life I don't go around skipping, but at times one can feel sheer exhilarating joy at the world.

- Alexander McCall Smith

Turn Some

Some couture collections have everything including the kitchen sink! Everything gets thrown on to make it look expensive. I find it grotesque when clothes hit you in the face and there's no room for fault. But I don't expect to turn things around all by myself. I'm not a saint.

- Alexander McQueen

Huge

Lo, what huge heaps of littleness around!

- Alexander Pope

Always Go

Always, as a child, I would go around the house, and if I found a word that I didn't know the meaning of, I would write it down and ask my parents to define it and try to memorise it.

- Alexandra Adornetto

Least Photographers

The photographers are always around. Wherever I go, they start clicking incessantly. I am always like, 'At least give me a heads-up, as, many times, I look so disheveled. What will people think?'

- Alia Bhatt

Jazz Show

When I was in New York, I put together a show; I put together this really great band and performed at this place called Littlefield in Brooklyn. It was really fun. I did, like, 10 standards, and then I just hopped around different bars like Mona's and different jazz clubs in New York just singing because I know all the standards so well.

- Alia Shawkat

Doing Down

Something like reading depends a lot on just having people around you who talk to you and read you books, more than sitting down and, say, doing a reading drill when you're 3 or 4 years old.

- Alison Gopnik

Celebrities Royals

There is a wall of myth around royals and A-list celebrities, and that makes us wonder what they are really like. We see them on magazine covers so often that we think we know them intimately, and we want to learn more. I like to burst that bubble a little.

- Alison Jackson

Hard Place Involves

When women are in positions of power it's a hard place to be, especially when that position involves bossing men around.

- Alison Pill

Anything Enjoying

Even after you win the championship, the work doesn't stop; it probably only becomes more. I'm just basically focused on what I need to do. There's a lot that goes into this - diet, preparation, assembling the right people around you, sparring partners, coaches, etc. - so I'm not enjoying anything.

- Alistair Overeem

Woman Very

Portia de Rossi is a gorgeous woman, and I found it incredibly refreshing to discover that she puts very little stock in her appearance, instead preferring to concentrate on what goodness she can put into the world around her - a choice we can all learn from.

- Amanda de Cadenet

I Think Wanting

I think people don't often realize how much goes into being a male dancer. It's athletic and it's hard. It's not just men wearing tights, or wanting to be around women.

- Amanda Schull

Doing Else

It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing.

- Amber Heard

Wandering Mall

Wandering around the mall and giggling at magazines doesn't interest me. I've never enjoyed shopping. I detest shoes.

- Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Want Years Ago

I wasn't sitting around years ago thinking, 'I really want to write a novel.'

- Amy Waldman

About None

When I was younger, I talked to the adults around me that I respected most about how they got where they were, and none of them plotted a course they could have predicted, so it seemed a waste of time to plan too long-term. Since then, I've always gone on my instincts.

- Anderson Cooper

Parent Years

When you lose a parent at ten years old, the world seems like a much scarier place. It makes complete sense to me that I took survival courses when I was a teenager and started going to war zones as a reporter. I didn't ever want to be taken advantage of, and I wanted to be able to take care of those around me.

- Anderson Cooper

Tell Part

I tell people a lot of times, if you want to be a part of something, you never know, you kind of just have to be around. A lot of people don't really have the patience for it, and they don't stick around. Dre and I are still working together, and we have plenty of music for the future.

- Anderson Paak

About Covering

People that are 40, they don't sit around at talk about gray hair and how it covers their hair. They talk about highlighting, of course they're covering gray, but they don't talk about it that way. They're going to get their colors because they need a little lightening.

- Andie MacDowell

Why About

People around the world now complain about stressors everyday, and the word shows up throughout professional and lay literature. But in reality there is no such thing as a stressor. Why not? Because nothing has the inherent power to provoke stress.

- Andrew J. Bernstein

Tell Cause

Tell people that biology and the environment cause obesity and they are offered the one thing we have to avoid: an excuse. As it is, people who see more fat people around them may themselves be more likely to gain weight.

- Andrew Lansley

People Studios

I don't really have studios. I wander around around people's attics, out in fields, in cellars, anyplace I find that invites me.

- Andrew Wyeth

Pink Bright

When I walk around on the street and someone comes up to me, I have just as many full-grown men with large beards in Slipknot shirts saying he likes my band as much as I do girls with bright pink hair.

- Andy Biersack

Away Gravitate

Childhood is generally far too early to know what we want to be when we grow up. Longitudinal studies following thousands of people across time have shown that most people only begin to gravitate toward certain vocational interests, and away from others, around middle school.

- Angela Duckworth

Me Early Childhood

I don't carry any early childhood trauma around with me, if that's what you're hinting at. The story of the bicycles - and there were three of them which were stolen from me - I've dealt with it well.

- Angela Merkel

Team Me

I have a team around me to support me.

- Angelique Kerber

Run Fiddling

I never bothered with cars. I was probably one of the few kids in school who didn't run around with hot-rod magazines. As I would be at home fiddling with my guitar, they would be fiddling with a car engine.

- Angus Young

Game No Time

In real life, it is the hare who wins. Every time. Look around you. And in any case it is my contention that Aesop was writing for the tortoise market. Hares have no time to read. They are too busy winning the game.

- Anita Brookner

Financial World

Women's vulnerability around money is hardly exclusive to Africa. Throughout the world, women struggle with financial power. In the West, women's financial literacy is notably lower than men's. That lack of knowledge means that many women slide into poverty when they become widows.

- Ann Cotton

Down Screen

I don't sit down in front of my computer screen and think, 'Right. Today I shall begin a story set in this or that period of history.' I just get ideas from the world around me.

- Ann Turner

Happy Wheelchair

They see me wheeling around in a beautiful gown, and they realize you can look elegant, and you can lead a happy life in a wheelchair. I know I've helped handicapped people, because I've received many comments.

- Anna Lee

Own Him

So far we have not convinced the Chinese authorities. My own brother was refused a visa on what was probably my last chance of seeing him when he was going around the world on a tour. Scott Nearing was similarly refused.

- Anna Louise Strong

Nicole Anna

'Anna Nicole' came from Guess Jeans; Paul Marciano and me and one of his friends, we were sitting around coming up with a stage name, and that's where that came from.

- Anna Nicole Smith

Believe Another

I believe in having total clarity around our goals. I believe in creating these goals together as a group and making sure they're aligned with Bob Iger's goals for the Walt Disney Co. And more than anything, making sure people understand that they have a responsibility to one another.

- Anne Sweeney

Happy Your

If you want to open a supermarket chain and put your face all around the globe, selling your baby and your dog, if it makes you happy, who am I to disagree, as the song goes. But it's not for me. I've always tried to keep my integrity and keep my autonomy.

- Annie Lennox

Mountains Cozy

When building in a place that already has a dominant style, it's important to behave yourself. Look around; refer to what you see. In the mountains above Salzburg, I saw charming chalets and wildflower meadows. The chalets are cozy - I don't do cozy. The meadows are in a soft disarray - I don't do soft, and I don't do disarray. I do order.

- Anouska Hempel

Writing Process Lot

I grew up on film sets but more around the process of making films. I saw a lot of the editing process and the writing process, which takes years. That really affected me growing up, that side of it.

- Alice Englert

Half Homes

The first meeting-houses were often built in the valleys, in the meadow lands; for the dwelling-houses must be clustered around them, since the colonists were ordered by law to build their new homes within half a mile of the meeting-house.

- Alice Morse Earle

Been About

Everything I've ever done has been because of travel. Right from leaving Australia to where I am today - it's all been about exchanging different points of view. The most important lesson I've learnt is to look and listen to what's happening around you.

- Anouska Hempel

Alive Other

I was a journeyman chef of middling abilities. Whatever authority I have as a commenter on this world comes from the sheer weight of 28 years in the business. I kicked around for 28 years and came out the other end alive and able to form a sentence.

- Anthony Bourdain

Myself Goes

I know that the arts are important. I'm not denying that, but I can't associate myself with all the claptrap that goes on around it.

- Anthony Hopkins

Love People

I love observing both vocally and by sight. So I take on a lot of those elements of people around me.

- Anthony Warlow

Long Will

The Ballon d'Or is one of my objectives, but it will be complicated so long as Ronaldo and Messi are around.

- Antoine Griezmann

Summer American

Spring has many American faces. There are cities where it will come and go in a day and counties where it hangs around and never quite gets there. Summer is drawn blinds in Louisiana, long winds in Wyoming, shade of elms and maples in New England.

- Archibald MacLeish

Thought Play

I don't know what I would have done without acting. I officially fell into it around age 6 in a class play that reimagined 'The Ugly Duckling.' My joy in performing was so boundless, you would have thought I'd just won a Tony.

- Ari Graynor

Been Studio

Salim-Sulaiman have always been my favourite. It's just an absolute pleasure working with them, and there's always something new you get to learn just by sitting in their studio and absorbing all that's happening around you.

- Armaan Malik

Down Private

You can't control the paparazzi. But if you go to Coachella you're going to get photographed. Whereas if you're at home, walking down the street you probably won't. It's something I've learnt to navigate my way around but I try to keep my private life private.

- Ashley Greene

I Think Conducting

I think that children that are acting are always pretty savvy anyway because you're conducting yourself around adults a lot of the time, aren't you? But there is this worry now that children just want to be famous.

- Ashley Jensen

Two Years

I actually started trying to be a professional writer with novels, and I wrote two that exist and are around... kind of. But they never really went anyplace in particular. I still like them both. What it showed me was that you can spend years on a novel, and then it could just be, like, OK, you spent that time and that's that.

- Charles Soule

People Should

You should respect the people you are around.

- Charli XCX

Kind Everyone

When you transition, everyone kind of has to transition around you.

- Chaz Bono

Love I Love You

It is weird. People will say, 'Oh my God, I love you.' And I'll say, 'Oh, that's so sweet. Thank you.' And the people who are walking around with me for the first time will say, 'I don't understand what happened. Somebody just told you they love you. I don't even understand what that means.'

- Cheryl Hines

Used Two

My mother has rheumatoid arthritis. I don't want to lose the ability to jump up and walk across the room or move around with the energy I'm used to having. That's far more important to me than a wrinkle or two.

- Cheryl Ladd

Some Guy

You fool around with different pitches playing catch, but it's not the same when you've got to face some guy with a bat in his hand.

- Chili Davis

Alphabet How

My books are often shelved around those of Chinua Achebe and Margaret Atwood, or Chimamanda Adichie and Monica Ali. All of this depends, of course, on the bookstore and how conversant the shelf stocker is with the alphabet.

- Chris Abani

World Fleet

I have a fleet of Rimowa Topas aluminum suitcases! They're all covered in stickers from around the world.

- Chris Benz

You Right People

Having the right people around you all the time is important. I do take the acting seriously. But this is all fun. I look at it like smoke and mirrors. I still think it's a dream, but I ain't pinching myself yet.

- Chris Brown

Mom Doing

I didn't understand that I could sing until I was like 11 or 12. My mom heard me singing around the house and she said, What are you doing? You really can sing! So then I started going to school and singing to the girls.

- Chris Brown

Independent Very

You have the massive world that was created by Marvel, and then you have these very intimate actors around you. There was as much character work on this as there would be on a little independent film. So, I felt very fortunate in that sense.

- Chris Hemsworth

Shared Construct

I try to construct each of my novels around one central theme - core tensions shared by the characters.

- Chris Pavone

I Think However

My wife has joked that if anything ever happened to me, she'd gladly live out her life without anyone else around. I think it bugs her I'm home all the time; such is the life cycle of the cartoonist, however.

- Chris Ware

About Weeks

I drink regular pour-over coffee, black. It's all about the beans. I'm always stocked at home with single-origin coffees from around the world, never more than two weeks old, kept in airtight containers.

- Chris Wood

Country Provoked

The music played most around St. Louis was country-western and swing. Curiosity provoked me to lay a lot of the country stuff on our predominantly black audience. After they laughed at me a few times, they began requesting the hillbilly stuff.

- Chuck Berry

Own Our

When we launched If WeRanTheWorld, I said to my team, I want us to innovate in every aspect of how we design and operate this as a business venture, as much as the web platform itself - because I want us to design our own startup around the working lives that we would all like to live. Women and men alike.

- Cindy Gallop

People Hard

It's hard to be scared when there are 80 people around you.

- Clea Duvall

Sufficiently Manner

As I was writing, I realised I wasn't sufficiently extrovert to gather enough interesting souls with tall tales around me. I was no Louis Theroux. But neither was I interested in exploring my inner life in public, in the manner of a Jonathan Raban.

- Clive Sinclair

House Had

I haven't really had any experiences, as far as having paparazzi sit outside of my house or following me around on the street. But, I actually don't really go to places where they do that, unless they knew where I lived or what kind of car I drive.

- Cole Hauser

Politics Am

I am not interested in politics at all. At home, around the dinner table, we never discuss politics.

- Columba Bush

See Been

There wasn't much around. After the shows, we would go to an Italian restaurant that a friend of ours owned and so I didn't get a chance to see much. Actually, that holds true of most places I've been.

- Connie Francis

Song Run

When a song comes to you, you can't run around it.

- Connie Smith

Thinking Part

You can't just take an aspirin and sit around and have 12 donuts and think, 'I took my aspirin so I'm not going to have a heart attack.' It's really important each person take personal responsibility for their health. You can't keep thinking that someone else is going to take care of it. You have to be part of the solution.

- Corbin Bernsen

Year Listener

My teacher told me I'd never amount to anything. I left high school at 15, after one year. But my real teachers were all the people around me. And I was a good listener.

- Curtis Mayfield

Through Wanting

I would go through phases of wanting to be a mermaid or a vet, but because I grew up around people who were always making movies, I guess it sort of just moulded my mind.

- Dakota Johnson

Been Had

I was on paper earning more money and having more success than I'd ever had. And it was also the most miserable I've ever been. When those things collided, I realised something was off. That's when I started poking around to figure out what was wrong.

- Damien Rice

Friends Our

There are a lot of sociopaths running around who are probably our friends, if not us, and we don't know it.

- Dan Gilroy

About Laps

To be honest, once you've driven around for about five, 10 laps, you don't notice a difference.

- Danica Patrick
