Bus

Total Quotes : 270
Honor Soldiers

We always knew how to honor fallen soldiers. They were killed for our sake, they went out on our mission. But how are we to mourn a random man killed in a terrorist attack while sitting in a cafe? How do you mourn a housewife who got on a bus and never returned?

- A. B. Yehoshua

Some Other

Teams need the opportunity to learn about each other's capabilities and develop productive routines. So once we get the right people on the bus, let's make sure they spend some time driving together.

- Adam Grant

My Life 30 Minutes

I'll never forget that first night with the team. Going to the ballpark on the bus was the hardest 30 minutes of my life. I had to walk down that aisle between all the players. I really didn't know too much about the Detroit Tigers at that time.

- Al Kaline

Doing Discover

You can't get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself.

- Alan Alda

Religious Purely

The sad reality is that there are no purely domestic issues in Israel. Issues that would be dealt with by municipalities in other countries - such as how to deal with a dangerous bridge or how to resolve conflicts between religious and secular bus riders - become major international issues when they occur in Israel.

- Alan Dershowitz

Wait Players

I tell the players that the bus is moving. This club has to progress. And the bus wouldn't wait for them. I tell them to get on board.

- Althea Gibson

My Life Part

I'm fully conscious all the time that I'm an American Negro, because it's part of my life. But I also know that if I want to say, 'I see a bus full of people,' I don't have to say, 'I am a Negro seeing a bus full of people.'

- Amiri Baraka

Ease Lore

I was born on an even keel. Family lore says I never cried, even at birth. I felt at ease on earth, in the right place. And like many children, I took comfort in life's regularity: Every few days it rained, the school bus came and went, and my parents were rooted in their union.

- Amity Gaige

Think New

Do you know who takes weekday shuttle flights between Washington and New York? People who think they are too important for the train, let alone the bus.

- Alex Pareene

Dad Oprah

You know what Oprah taught me? Unless you count as changing your life having a neighborhood dad say to you every morning at the school bus stop, 'You sure don't look as good as you did on 'Oprah!', being on 'Oprah' doesn't change your life.

- Alice Dreger

Doing Normal

You can't live in your own secluded world. If you're not on the Tube, on the bus doing normal things, how can you relate to people?

- Andrea Corr

Hours Half

But for every hour and a half on stage, you have a five hour long bus ride, waiting for five hours at the airport, five hours of interviews... I know, it's part of the job, but that doesn't imply I have to like it.

- Andrew Eldritch

Small Some

Whether you live in a city or a small town, and whether you drive a car, take the bus or ride a train, at some point in the day, everyone is a pedestrian.

More Next

Local transit agencies have developed apps to let you know when the next bus is coming, but there are so many more applications that can be done.

- Anthony Foxx

Death Soaps

In soaps, people come back from the dead all the time, to the point where death is just a bus stop.

- Anthony Geary

Crowd Used

I used to get off the bus, and there'd be a crowd around, you know, and I was thinking, 'God, I hope this is not for me.' And it normally was, and it was because someone said something to my sister, and the first she says is, 'Well, I'll get my brother.'

- Antoine Fuqua

Throw Makes

You don't throw your quarterback under the bus, the guy who makes you who you are.

- Antonio Brown

Would Throw

I can't do something that I would not throw myself under a bus for.

- Anya Taylor-Joy

Language Moved

I was 13 when my parents moved to Israel, and I was put in a Scottish mission school. Ninety-nine percent of the children were Israeli... Suddenly, I found myself speaking the wrong language, dressed in the wrong clothes, picked up by the wrong mode of transportation - an embassy car instead of a bus.

- Arlie Russell Hochschild

Truck Driver Very

I'm very proud of being Italian-American, but people don't realize that the mafia is just this aberration. The real community is built on the working man, the guy who's the cop, the fireman, the truck driver, the bus driver.

- Chazz Palminteri

Love Some

I have traveled a fair amount, and I have visited some great cities. I love architecture and museums and castles and ruins and central markets and even double-decker bus tours. But, I am a sucker for a tropical beach.

- Chelsea Cain

Possibilities Your

It's hard to bury your head in Los Angeles. People come up to you and say, 'Hey, I saw your picture on a bus.' It's tricky: You're excited by the possibilities, but you don't want to get too crazy.

- Chelsea Peretti

Fired Dad

I recruited my dad to be my bass player and fired him on several occasions. He stayed on as a bus driver.

Play Ever

All I ever wanted to do was write songs and get on a bus and go play them for people.

One Day I Remember

I remember feeling all right with myself until age 13. Then, I was getting off the bus one day and this guy called me Miss Piggy. That was the first time I ever really felt like I wasn't okay.

- Cheryl James

Before Need

I had spent many years before I was 31 hearing people tell me, Oh Man, you're so funny, you need to be in television. But that and a quarter won't get you on a bus.

- Chi McBride

Some Tell

I tell my staff, we're riding a tour bus around, and we're going to stop and look at some weird stuff - but we're taking our viewers around safely. They're just looking out the window at it. I'm trying to create a sense of comfort for my center audience.

- Chris Matthews

Ever Form

I don't know anyone who's ever taken a bus. It's a mysterious form of transportation.

- Christopher Guest

Number Other

What surprises me is when people give me their mobile number. The other day, someone on a bus asked if I swear. I said I try not to, but of course I'm just a normal person.

- Christopher Parker

Door Hang

Show business is like a bumpy bus ride. Sometimes you find yourself temporarily juggled out of your seat and holding onto a strap. But the main idea is to hang in there and not be shoved out the door.

- Cliff Robertson

Kind Still

When I'm actually getting off the bus, I still have my gospel playing. That's the way-to-the-game kind of music.

Crystal Tested

During the bus boycott, I was tested by fire, and I came to understand that I was not a breakable crystal figurine.

- Coretta Scott King

Movie Bootleg

'The Blair Witch Project' is great for motion sickness. The first time you see it, it is extremely creepy. The first time I saw it, I saw it on a bootleg tape on a tour bus before it had even come out. It was one of the first movies I'd seen like that. I didn't even realize it was a damn movie!

- Corey Taylor

Fly How

Really, anyone can learn how to fly. If you can drive a bus, you can fly an airplane.

- Cory Lidle

Meant Sold

I mangle phrases constantly. The other day I was chatting with my boyfriend and I said to him, 'He really sold him under the bus.' And he said, 'I think you meant 'threw him under the bus,' or 'sold him up the river.'

- Cristin Milioti

Know About

You know who we hear about all the rappers from? The bus drivers.

- Dan Auerbach

Seven Used

You can't have a U.S. Open anymore without an extra course to store all the hospitality tents. I used to be able to drive up to the clubhouse and park like the players. Now, there are seven corporate hospitality guys who have my spot, and I'm on a bus.

- Dan Jenkins

Been Before

Girls and guys are like a bus stop - they come and go. You never know, like, who's going to be the right one, and what I've been taught is you really gotta figure out who you are first before you can really give yourself to someone else.

- Daren Kagasoff

Work Bed

I'm used to pressure. When writing must get done, I work in bed, on a bus, a train.

- Darren Star

Side Agent

If your agent or publisher is jumping up and down at the thought of your novel, it's because they're picturing the movie poster on the side of the bus.

- Dave Morris

Here I Think

I think that more and more you're going to see people of good will on their side of the aisle say you know what, we got to get off the bus here, this is not headed in the right direction.

- David Axelrod

Like Across

I'd really like to get on a Greyhound bus and go backpacking across America.

- David Morrissey

Mirrors Certain Point

At a certain point, you have to take the rearview mirrors off the bus and focus forward, and that's what we've sought to do.

- David Petraeus

Always Happen

I always say that, for me, writing a book is like a wacky Greyhound bus trip - I know where I'm starting and where I'll end up, but I have no idea what will happen along the way.

- Deb Caletti

Waiting My Life

I am nothing if not rational about what is worthy of my anxiety and what is not, and I refuse to live my life as if a giant bus is just around the corner, waiting to crush me the minute I step off the curb.

- Deborah Copaken Kogan

City Frustrated

Once you start cycling, the city opens up for you. No longer are you fighting it, hot and frustrated; no longer are you at the mercy of bus drivers, roadworks, decisions made by others and over which you have no control. Believe me, once you've tasted this freedom, you're hooked.

- Deborah Moggach

Country I Think

Coming home, we stopped for a bite to eat and ran into a confused waitress. Had a heart-rending time trying to speak the Words of Life to her, and as I think of all this country now, many just as confused, and more so, I realized that the 39th Street bus is as much a mission field as Africa ever was.

- Jim Elliot

Kid Through

I wanted to be a bus driver when I was a kid. I look at bus driving through the eyes of a little boy. I see it as glamorous.

- Jim Lehrer

Waiting Named

This is how a revolution begins. It begins when someone grows tired of standing idly by, waiting for history's arc to bend toward justice, and instead decides to give it a swift shove. It begins when a black seamstress named Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat on a bus to a white man in the segregated South.

- Jo Becker

My Life Sometimes

I get recognised sometimes. But I just live my life. I get on the bus, I get on the subway, it's not a problem.

- Joan Allen

Stop Getting

Getting older is fine. There is nothing you can do to stop it so you might as well stay on the bus.

- John Byrne

Big I Remember

I remember once acting really cool on a bus with this girl named Stephanie. When I got home, I realized that I had a really big zit on my forehead. If you have acne problems, you really shouldn't be acting like Don Juan. I should have been contrite - and apologized for exposing her to the angry pimple.

- John Cusack

Country By The Time

I was in New York on September 11 when those planes hit the World Trade Center. At the time, it seemed like it was a local thing. But three or four days later, by the time we drove across the country in the bus, we realized it wasn't a local thing. You could really feel the states become united. We became the United States of America.

- John Madden

Movie Cameo

I have a cameo in every movie. In '50/50,' I'm in the back of the bus.

- Jonathan Levine

Boston Suburbs

I grew up, as I joke around, in the 'People's Republic of Charlestown' in the city of Boston. And I was blessed to be raised right there on Monument Square in Charlestown, and every morning I'd hop on the bus and go on a 45-minute ride out to the suburbs in Brooklyn for elementary school. And I got to have my seat, really, in both worlds.

- Jonathan Tucker

Feet Bags

Growing up, I had only one good pair of shoes. So on rainy school days, my mom would slip plastic bread bags over them to keep them dry. But I was never embarrassed. Because the school bus would be filled with rows and rows of young Iowans with bread bags slipped over their feet.

- Joni Ernst

New Took

I moved to New York when I was 10, from Rio de Janeiro. So there was no need for driving: I took the subway, cabs and the bus.

- Jordana Brewster

Thankful Alive

Every day I've got to be thankful that I am alive, and you never know - the cliche is, I guess, you could get hit by a bus tomorrow, so you'd better be at peace with whatever you got going at the moment.

- Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Country Feels

Sometimes it feels like I've been in the business forever, but then other times, it feels like kind of a flash. Growing up, all I wanted to do was sing. All I wanted to do was get on a bus and ride around the country and sing for people and be a household name.

- Josh Turner

Wait Very

Those days were very tough. All my teammates are white, and it was a different time. I couldn't go out to eat with the white players; I had to wait until someone brought something out to the bus. We couldn't stay in the same hotels.

- Juan Marichal

Away Belly

My desire for my own sitcom began as a little girl - I spent hours lying on my belly on the shag carpeting getting lost in the world of the '70s sitcom. All I wanted to do was run away to the Brady house, The Partridge Family bus; even the project on 'Good Times' seemed better than Clark, NJ.

- Judy Gold

Think Here

If I've been here a long time, I think: I must go to London and speak to someone or see a bus.

- Julian Clary

My Life Behind

As a kid, I grew to define what I didn't want my life to be like by sitting behind moaning women on the bus, hearing them bang on about their aches and pains, both real and imagined.

- Julie Burchill

Maybe I Remember

I remember, I used to get off a bus, and if there was someone sitting in the station, I remember thinking maybe they were from Shin Bet and came for me.

- Ayman Odeh

Lucky Fare

Individually the poor are not too tempting to thieves, for obvious reasons. Mug a banker and you might score a wallet containing a month's rent. Mug a janitor and you will be lucky to get away with bus fare to flee the crime scene.

- Barbara Ehrenreich

Sensitive Come

Most novels I come across have all the excitement of a long trip on a bus with a sensitive glee club. Yammer and chat.

- Barry Hannah

Mountains Shows

I also used to work in the Catskill Mountains as a bus boy, and I performed in talent shows.

- Barry Mann

Dublin Turned

250,000 people turned up in Dublin to cheer me on an open-topped bus along O'Connell St after my world title winning fight in 1985. I'll never forget the sea of smiling faces that greeted me that day.

- Barry McGuigan

Doing Very

If you're impatient while waiting for the bus, tell yourself you're doing 'Bus waiting meditation.' If you're standing in a slow line at the drugstore, you're doing 'Waiting in line meditation.' Just saying these words makes me feel very spiritual and high-minded and wise.

- Gretchen Rubin

Happen Having

One of the fears of having too much work is not having time to observe. And once you get recognised, there is nowhere for you to look any more. You can't sit on a night bus and watch it all happen.

- Benedict Cumberbatch

Still Drinking

Ninety years after slavery, blacks were still segregated from whites. They still had separate drinking fountains, separate restrooms, separate neighborhoods, and separate schools. They still were expected to sit at the back of the bus.

- Benjamin Watson

Over Been

On the field, blacks have been able to be super giants. But, once our playing days are over, this is the end of it and we go back to the back of the bus again.

- Hank Aaron

Love Tapes

'Mixtape' sounds retro! I used to make lots of mixed tapes. It was one of those '90s things - every girl gave them to her best friend. I remember exchanging a few with a boy on a bus when I was 14. I thought he hated me, but in hindsight, maybe he was in love with me, because he gave me the best music.

- Hannah Ware

Play Different Styles

I saw it as a challenge to play with Pat and we put hours and hours into it, usually on the bus. The trick was to find something that we both wanted to play within our different styles which would add up to being greater than the sum of its parts.

- Bill Bruford

Strong Dealing

The first gay people we elect must be strong. They must not be content to sit in the back of the bus. They must not be content to accept pablum. They must be above wheeling and dealing.

- Harvey Milk

Loud Which

I heard David Sedaris read live recently which was a complete delight. Few writers make me laugh out loud on the bus. He does.

- Hattie Morahan

Think Heat

I think it's important for bands to rough it. Whether you're in a van or a bus, it's still tough. You still have to stand in a two hour catering line with flies everywhere in the heat, and you still have to lug your gear.

- Hayley Williams

Back Sack

We were playing a fair, and a few people were handing me stuffed animals and flowers, but one person handed me a paper sack. So I took all the stuff back to the bus. I put the sack in my lap and opened it, and a live iguana jumped out of the sack and onto my shirt. I screamed like a little girl!

- Blake Shelton

Read Stores

In the dime stores and bus stations, people talk of situations, read books, repeat quotations, draw conclusions on the wall.

- Bob Dylan

Possession Marked

Well, they had a lot of the things they found in his possession. They had the map, you know, that marked the route of the parade. They had statements from the bus driver and the taxicab driver that hauled him somewhere.

- Henry Wade

Own Bands

We want to stay on this tour bus together as long as we possibly can. I'm sure a lot of bands are like, 'I need my own space.' But we don't. I want to be with these guys forever.

- Hillary Scott

Some Part

Guys are really easy to get along with. It's a lot better than being on the bus with eight girls. But the worst part is being the only girl, because there's some days where you just wanna watch a chick flick.

- Hillary Scott

Rain Shelter

My father was in the civil service. I can remember standing in a bus shelter in the pouring rain, and that we were allowed candy floss at the end of the holiday if we had behaved.

- Honor Blackman

Some Ronnie

'Human' was controversial within The Killers way before it was controversial to the rest of the world! It caused some problems within the band. Not to throw anybody under the bus, but it was pretty much me and Dave against Mark and Ronnie for a little while. We were standing up for the song.

- Brandon Flowers

Complacency Flags

History shows that all protest movements rely on symbols - boycotts, strikes, sit-ins, flags, songs. Symbolic action on whatever scale - from the Montgomery Bus Boycott to wearing a simple wristband - is designed to disrupt our everyday complacency and force people to think.

- Hugh Evans

Doing I Think

I think there are actors who are like, 'Okay, what am I doing, how am I doing it, what's the appeal? Tell me what to do, what are the exact lines from the script? Okay, I got it.' I am not that way. I would be a terrible bus driver. I'd want to be like, 'Oh, let's take this side road! Let's see what happens when we go down this back alley.'

- Brian Huskey

Think Truck Driver

I sometimes think it ironic for an ex-seaman, longshoreman, truck driver, policeman, bus driver, etc... to find success writing children's novels.

- Brian Jacques

Thought Dad

I took the first James Kelman novel, 'The Bus Conductor Hines', home to my dad. I thought, 'My dad will like this; it's written in Scots.' But my dad said: 'I can't read that.' He was reading James Bond and John le Carre. That was part of what attracted me to crime - the idea of getting a wide audience.

- Ian Rankin

Repair Bus Driver

Dad was a bus driver, and when he finished work he would repair cars.

- Bruno Tonioli

Some Rooms

Anything that could be conceived of that would separate black people from white people was devised and codified by someone in some state in the South. There were colored and White waiting rooms everywhere, from doctor's offices to the bus stations, as people may already know.

- Isabel Wilkerson

Little Brother Plays

My little brother and grandma told me I could sing. I used to sing in church, too. Not like in the choir or anything, but for people around the church... on the church bus going home and Christmas plays.

- Bryson Tiller

Like Plays

I used to sing in church, too. Not like in the choir or anything, but for people around the church... on the church bus going home and Christmas plays.

- Bryson Tiller

Me Like

To me, traveling by bus is like climbing into a closet and watching 'Das Boot.'

- Buzz Osborne

Reflection Through

The problem with writing a monthly book is that you're going through your work like a man running for a bus, red-faced and out of breath. There isn't time for reflection or critical self-examination.

- J. Michael Straczynski

Wheels Some

I originally envisioned myself doing something with the suffix 'ology' at the end of it, like marine biology or entomology. But after I started to do some acting gigs, I thought it wasn't a bad thing... I said to myself, 'I might as well keep riding this bus until the wheels fall off.'

- Callan McAuliffe

Work New

I just work a lot. I just remember recording in a hotel room in Malaysia. I work on planes, I work on buses. A lot of times when I'm backstage in the hotel or on the bus, I would have new ideas.

- Jack Antonoff
