College

Total Quotes : 2354
Think Sacrifices

I think that the young people today feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to their brothers and sisters because of the sacrifices that most families make to send their children to college.

- A. Bartlett Giamatti

Almost Interwoven

On the rare occasions when I spend a night in Oxford, the keeping of the hours by the clock towers in New College, and Merton, and the great booming of Tom tolling 101 times at 9 pm at Christ Church are inextricably interwoven with memories and regrets and lost joys. The sound almost sends me mad, so intense are the feelings it evokes.

- A. N. Wilson

Year Movie

I joined the Madras Christian College but dropped out after three months. Telugu music director Ramesh Naidu asked me to assist him, and I did so for over a year. I did think of rejoining college, but by then, I was discovering the musician in me. I worked with Illaya Raja and Raj Koti and soon shifted to commercials. This led to movie offers.

- A. R. Rahman

Bay Area Drop

My co-founder Dylan Smith and I left our junior year of college to move to the Bay Area. To the horror of our friends' parents, we actually had two other friends drop out of college to work on the product. The four of us were just working non-stop growing Box.

- Aaron Levie

Standard Held

I'm at a point where there isn't any wasted movement in the throwing motion. Everything is consistent and smooth. When I first got into the league, I held the ball really high. That was the standard in college, and it messed up my timing a little bit - the draw, bringing it back, then the release.

- Aaron Rodgers

Insurance Other

We got to think of other ways to help these kids out because there's a lot of kids who get hurt in college and then don't make it to the NFL and don't have insurance, and their entire lives are changed when they put their bodies on the line for their school.

- Aaron Rodgers

Some Going

I didn't start working out until college. But in college I could feel my body changing, and I knew that if I didn't make some changes, I was going to go in the wrong direction.

- Aaron Schock

I Think Seniors

When I campaign with seniors, it's always, 'Are you a Democrat or Republican?' But when I campaign on college campuses, they ask me where I stand on specific issues. I think Millennials are much less interested in conventional labels. One thing that's universal among Millennials is a distinct frustration with Washington, D.C.

- Aaron Schock

Career Some

When I was right out of college, I felt competitive with some of the guys in my class over career stuff. It's funny now to think about it - that a friend getting a job or something had anything to do with me... I think that my relationship with my wife has played a pivotal role in the chilling out of Aaron.

- Aaron Staton

Some Over

When I was right out of college, I felt competitive with some of the guys in my class over career stuff.

- Aaron Staton

After 9/11, the amount of applicants the FBI received increased exponentially. Whereas you used to require a college degree, and it was a small group of people who were just out of college, after 9/11, it changed.

- Aaron Tveit

New York Moved

I ended up going to college for visual arts but moved up to New York after I graduated from college in 2006 and started going gung ho to the Upright Citizens Brigade, and I realized that that was what I was really interested in and what I really wanted to do.

- Abbi Jacobson

Love City

I love Maira Kalman. She's an amazing illustrator and writer. I've loved her since I was in college, but when I moved to New York and experienced the same city she was drawing and writing about, I developed a whole new appreciation. Her work made me observe everything so much deeper and more joyfully.

- Abbi Jacobson

Art Learn

You know how when you get older you actually want to learn? When I went to college, I wasn't as interested in the art history classes as I am now.

- Abbi Jacobson

Game Works

When I was in college, I learned to really take care of my body and figured out what works best for me and what doesn't work for me when it comes to my nutrition. That helped so much on the field because soccer is such a fitness-oriented game.

- Abby Wambach

Nashville Some

I was born in Evanston, Illinois. I spent my elementary and part of my junior high school years in a D.C. suburb. And then I spent my high school years in Minnesota. And then I spent my college years in Colorado. And then I spent some time living in China. And then I spent three years in Vermont before moving down to Nashville.

- Abigail Washburn

- Adam Carolla

Commit Before

Like a bottle of wine or a promising college quarterback turning pro, C.E.O.'s are similar to what economists call experience goods: you commit to a price long before you know if they're worth it.

- Adam Davidson

Advice Another

That's another piece of advice: Don't go to college; follow your dreams. Unless you're a doctor - then go to college.

- Adam DeVine

Myself Doing

College wasn't something I saw myself doing.

- Adam Driver

Doing Date

For years, I believed that anything worth doing was worth doing early. In graduate school, I submitted my dissertation two years in advance. In college, I wrote my papers weeks early and finished my thesis four months before the due date. My roommates joked that I had a productive form of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

- Adam Grant

Chair Idea

In college, my idea of a productive day was to start writing at 7 A.M. and not leave my chair until dinnertime.

- Adam Grant

I Am Definitely

I am definitely going to college!

- Adam Hicks

Capital Weeks

The summer before my senior year in college, I talked my way into an unpaid internship on Capitol Hill. I was able to have this stimulating resume- and network- enhancing experience because my parents could afford to keep me clothed, housed, and fed in the nation's capital for 10 weeks.

- Adam Lashinsky

Student Conference

When I was a senior in college, I attended an inspiring conference at West Point called the Student Conference on U.S. Affairs, which paired political science majors with cadets in the hopes of building future civilian-military relationships.

- Adam Lashinsky

Hang Set

I was a jock in college and high school, but I didn't hang out with the jocks. I was sort of a nerd who didn't look like a nerd. I never really fit into any social set.

- Adam Rapp

Small Iowa

I was born in Chicago, then I spent most of my youth in Joliet, Illinois which is about thirty minutes south, and I went to a military academy for high school in Wisconsin. Then I went to college, on a basketball scholarship to a small school in Iowa, so I'm like Mr. Midwest.

- Adam Rapp

Campus Some

I actually didn't really go to college. I enrolled and never showed up. Being on a college campus where we shot some of the scenes in 'The Goodwin Games'... it did make me wish that was an experience that I had.

- Adam Rodriguez

Doing Bands

Bands like R.E.M. and even The Replacements, during that initial wave of college rock, would sell 40, 50, 100,000 copies of a record, and that would be seen as extremely successful - and definitely enough to keep doing more.

- Adam Schlesinger

Reinvent Certainly

It's interesting how there are a few times in your life when you get to reinvent yourself. Like the beginning of junior high or high school, and certainly when you go off to college.

- Adam Scott

Strong Basketball

Strong college basketball is great for the NBA.

- Adam Silver

Through Squeeze

I watch college basketball and sports in general. I'm also a runner. I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan near Central Park, so I try to squeeze in runs through Central Park when I can.

- Adam Silver

Senior Took

I took acting classes in my senior year in college and I loved it.

- Adepero Oduye

Best About

When you think about little league football, high school, and even on to college even more so, you're dealing with a lot of guys that are prideful, that think they're the best - a lot of alpha males. So, typically, you've got to have a guy that can control those guys, and, when he talks, they know he means business. He's a serious guy.

- Adrian Peterson

New Named

I went to a college in New York called New Paltz. I studied theater there for four years. I also studied privately in NYC with a teacher named Robert X. Modica.

Work Nine-To-Five

I didn't want to go to college or work in an office or have a nine-to-five job. I knew that quite clearly before I left school.

- Aidan Gillen

Play Revisiting

I did plays in college, and I have half of a play. But I'm kind of stuck. I keep revisiting it so maybe it will move somewhere. There's something about plays where you can feel that sense of artifice at any moment.

- Aimee Bender

Boyfriend Been

I married my college boyfriend, so I've been with him since I was a kid.

- Aisha Tyler

Entertain Very

I acted out a lot. I was very nerdy. I was very isolated, which I made up for by kind of talking and trying to entertain people and get them to like me, so I did theatre and improv in high school and college, but always as a hobby.

- Aisha Tyler

Strong Capital

I've always had strong ties with Delhi, and I do stay in touch with my friends and periodically visit the capital. I started my schooling at St. Columbus High School before I went to Mayo College. Delhi, for me, is a historical city with all its beautiful monuments.

- Ajay Mehta

Some Private

Mayo College, where I got my grounding, is a private boarding school. It is a traditional school with brilliant teachers including some from overseas.

- Ajay Mehta

Through Very

My family was very supportive of my acting. They didn't really have a choice because I got jobs acting before anyone could really say anything. It paid my way through college and helped my family out.

- Ajay Naidu

Father Training

I joined Khalsa College just opposite Don Bosco in class XI, but soon I quit studies and was sent to Bangkok by my father to learn martial arts, as that is the only place we could afford given that I would also work there to support my training.

- Akshay Kumar

Thought Some

Some of George W. Bush's friends say that Bush believes God called him to be president during these times of trial. But God told me that He/She/It had actually chosen Al Gore by making sure that Gore won the popular vote and, God thought, the Electoral College. 'That worked for everyone else,' God said.

- Al Franken

Career Prepare

During Vietnam, I was in college, enjoying my student deferment. The government wisely felt that, in my case, military service was less important than completing my studies to prepare me for my chosen career: comedian.

- Al Franken

Teacher Became

My daughter became a teacher right out of college.

- Al Franken

Values Concerned

The Minnesotans I talk to are really concerned about what the future holds for their families. They're trying to pay for health care and send their kids to college, they're worried about declining home values, they're scared for a loved one they have serving in Iraq.

- Al Franken

Through Kid

I was a pretty delinquent little kid. My folks and I didn't get along, so I basically moved out... put myself through high school and then college by working. I'm only a half-year short of a degree in history.

- Al Jourgensen

Education Think

I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver. Then they would really be educated.

- Al McGuire

Delivering Town

Condoleezza Rice, the national security adviser, is right there... she's in town because her father was at Johnson Smith College... and she was delivering a speech there.

- Al Michaels

Insurance Became

My dad was in the army. World War II. He got his college education from the army. After World War II he became an insurance salesman. Really, I didn't know my dad very well. He and my mother split up after the war. I was raised by my maternal grandmother and grandfather, and by my mother.

- Al Pacino

Black Me

My first college roommate greeted me with a shocked silence followed by, 'So... you're black.'

- Al Roker

Year Senior Year

I'd probably say my biggest yo-yo was when I was finishing up my senior year of college. I lost about 100 pounds and within a year gained it all back.

- Al Roker

Incarceration Jobs

Not graduating high school on time leads to fewer chances of attending college and obtaining good paying jobs, and creates instead higher chances of incarceration and unemployment.

- Al Sharpton

Week Been

As I stood and gave the eulogy for young Michael Brown last week, I kept thinking about the fact that this child should have been in college instead of laying in a coffin.

- Al Sharpton

Against Been

I have been defending Israel's right to exist, and to defend itself against terrorism, for many years-on college campuses, in television appearances and in debate.

- Alan Dershowitz

Same High

The same independence that got me into trouble in high school got me praise in college.

- Alan Dershowitz

My Life About

I never had a strategy about my life. I didn't have enough information to have a strategy. I'm the first person in my family to go to college. I had no family mentors.

- Alan Dershowitz

Need Burning

You don't need a four-year college degree if you have burning ambition or a great plan.

- Alan Gerry

Through Exception

I was sort of shocked when it all of a sudden turned out that I got all A's through college, with the exception of two B's in the first term. I never envisaged myself as summa cum laude.

- Alan Greenspan

My Life Anybody

'After 17' is a song I wrote when my first daughter went to college, so that's kind of where I'm at in that part of my life. If you listen to that song and knew anything about me, you'd say, 'Oh yeah, he wrote that about his daughter,' but I try not to write them that they are so specific that they wouldn't apply to anybody that has a child.

- Alan Jackson

Physicians Cut

My brother is the youngest member of the College of Physicians and Surgeons. And I wouldn't let him cut my nails.

- Alan King

Would Condition

We also knew it would be difficult, because of the financial condition of the family, for me to go to college.

- Alan Shepard

Dallas Very

Noah's daughter is different from the girls of 'Suburgatory.' She goes to Brown, so she's in college, and she's very smart. And his wife is very much a very strong woman. She's certainly in charge at his house. She's Dallas's polar opposite.

- Alan Tudyk

By The Time Became

By the time I was at college, I became very alert to the question of racial discrimination, and I remember one of my first writing attempts had to do with a lynching.

- Albert Maltz

Education Middle

Middle class families are struggling to send their sons and daughters to school. For many Americans, a college education is essential to future success.

- Albio Sires

Through Very

If I had to do a lot of promotion as a kid, it would have been very intense. I'm really glad I got to go through high school, have a college experience, and have the last five years since then, just... being a person.

- Alden Ehrenreich

Art Watches

When I was 18, I began attending college for art and design, and I designed all sorts of things from furniture to industrial designs and even watches.

- Aldis Hodge

Education Began

I was in public school until third or fourth grade, and after that, I was homeschooled. I was homeschooled until I was 14, and then when I was 14, I began attending college. Mom was not playing about that education.

- Aldis Hodge

Year Full Time

I was in college in Washington, D.C. I did three years full-time. I did all my requirements, and my senior year was really a gut year. And I said, 'Law school will always be there.' I was in no hurry to get right into that.

- Alec Baldwin

Woman Wheelchair

As my friend said to me, when you have children, typically in a second marriage, when you're older and you get married again to a woman who would have children, you must always remember that you make sure the children attend a college where the commencement ceremonies are held in a facility with a wheelchair accessible ramp.

- Alec Baldwin

Study Go

It was the most exciting thing to leave secondary school and go to college, to have that freedom to study whatever I wanted.

- Alek Wek

Going Babysitting

I was working part-time as a cleaner while I was going to college and then babysitting after school.

- Alek Wek

Been Touring

Well, I've never been in a touring rock band, it was all just high school and college, playing toga parties in frat houses.

- Alessandro Nivola

Mind Voice

Although my other ambition was to be a musical theater star (and I would attend college on a voice scholarship), writing was never far from my mind.

- Alex Flinn

Desire Graduated

I didn't harbor a huge desire to become a chef until I graduated from college.

- Alex Guarnaschelli

Nostalgic Had

I'm not nostalgic for my glory days in college. It was lame for me. Probably because I had no friends.

- Alex Honnold

Father Had

I was 19 when my father died from a heart attack. He was a 55-year-old college professor and had led what was by all appearances a risk-free life. But he was overweight, and heart disease runs in our family.

- Alex Honnold

Going Practicing

Once I got to college, I realized that practicing 3-6 days wasn't going to be enough for me to get where I wanted.

- Alex Morgan

Through Big

I'm a big advocate of starting soccer young and always having the ball at your foot, but that's because I didn't do that. If I'd focused more on that when I was a kid, it would've been so helpful. It took me, like, halfway through college to feel comfortable with the ball.

- Alex Morgan

Small Going

When I finish as the host of 'Jeopardy!' I'm going to go up to Taft in central California. They have a small college there that teaches you about oil drilling.

- Alex Trebek

Study Other

Education is the key to the future: You've heard it a million times, and it's not wrong. Educated people have higher wages and lower unemployment rates, and better-educated countries grow faster and innovate more than other countries. But going to college is not enough. You also have to study the right subjects.

- Alex Tabarrok

Focus Taxpayers

The obsessive focus on a college degree has served neither taxpayers nor students well. Only 35 percent of students starting a four-year degree program will graduate within four years, and less than 60 percent will graduate within six years. Students who haven't graduated within six years probably never will.

- Alex Tabarrok

Magic Study

Our obsessive focus on college schooling has blinded us to basic truths. College is a place, not a magic formula. It matters what subjects students study, and subsidies should focus on the subjects that matter the most - not to the students, but to everyone else.

- Alex Tabarrok

Necessary Nor

Going to college is neither necessary nor sufficient to be well-educated.

- Alex Tabarrok

Been Very

College has been oversold. It has been oversold to students who end up dropping out or graduating with degrees that don't help them very much in the job market. It also has been oversold to the taxpayers, who foot the bill for subsidies that do nothing to encourage innovation and economic growth.

- Alex Tabarrok

Reason Needed

The only reason I got into broadcasting was, I needed money to pay for my junior and senior years at college, and they hired me, those fools!

- Alex Trebek

I Think Couple

Originally, I think, I wanted to be an actor. But I got into broadcasting by accident, if you will, because I needed money to pay for my college education. I applied for a summer announcing job at a couple of radio stations.

- Alex Trebek

Been Before

I'm actually one of the few kids in my grade, especially girls, who didn't end up going to college, just because I already knew what I wanted to do. I had already been actively working in music before I graduated.

- Alex Winston

Seniors Exacerbate

Without any formal personal finance instruction in our high school or college curricula, many college seniors who graduate in the red will continue to make common financial mistakes that only exacerbate their debt burdens.

- Alexa Von Tobel

Maine Discovered

When I left the state of Maine for college, I met my first really rich friends, and I discovered summer could be a verb.

- Alexander Chee

Cut Been

When I first went to college, I went to Western Michigan. I had been rejected by a bunch of schools for theater. I was like, 'I'm obviously not cut out for this, so I might as well just go into film.'

- Alexander Koch

Love Deep

The truth is, I love history and studied it in college, with a particular focus on early American history. My love is so deep, in fact, I went to school at The College of William & Mary in Colonial Williamsburg.

- Alexandra Bracken

I Think Some

I lived on my own when I was living in New York City when I was 18, working on a show. And that definitely kind of grows you up a little faster than a normal 18-year-old in college, so I think so. I think I've got some street smarts.

- Alexandra Chando

Music High

I was crazy for music as a high school kid and a college kid.

- Alexandra Patsavas

Before Quickly

My first summer in college, I interned for Arena Stage in D.C. and taught a disastrous class on standup comedy to middle schoolers at the Arena Stage camp. I had never taught anything before, and needless to say, I quickly lost control of the class.

- Alexandra Petri

Other Assignments

In high school, you at least have to get up at a reasonable hour and show up at places on time. College, on the other hand, gave me the sense that I could complete major assignments at 2 A.M. without suffering any repercussions, along with the erroneous idea that in real life, things started after one in the afternoon.

- Alexandra Petri
