Doing

Total Quotes : 9506
Listening Going

Don't underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the thing you can't hear, and not bothering.

- A. A. Milne

Deal Other

I enjoy doing my work, and I don't want to deal with the other things. When you enjoy doing your work so much, why deal with where to show, how to show, what to do? If the artist finds the right gallery which respects their work and gives them that freedom to do whatever they want to do, the artist can focus on his work.

- A. Balasubramaniam

Often Offices

Ambition often puts Men upon doing the meanest offices; so climbing is performed in the same position with creeping.

- A. C. Benson

Away Cut

I did four movies where I gained, like, fifty pounds. I had curly hair, and I had all of this facial hair. I had put on all this weight for these movies, and I did four or five of them back-to-back. Then I cut the weight and I got fit again. I cut my beard and I took away the mustache, and people were like, 'What are you doing?'

- A. J. Bowen

Think Like

When you boil down the real facts and statistics of what carbon dioxide is doing to this planet... to not feel like you have to do something... I don't think you're human.

- A. J. Buckley

Woman Nearly

It is the woman - nearly always - in spite of all the advances of modern feminism, who still takes responsibility for the bulk of the chores, as well as doing her paid job. This is true even in households where men try to be unselfish and to do their share.

- A. N. Wilson

Hope Anything Else

I suppose if I'd got a brilliant first and done research I might still be a don today, but I hope not. People become dons because they are incapable of doing anything else in life.

- A. N. Wilson

Because Else

People become dons because they are incapable of doing anything else in life.

- A. N. Wilson

Composers Classical

I grew up on Bach and Beethoven, and now I'm listening to more modern composers who I can't even name. But since I'm constantly doing music, it's difficult to have that quality time to listen to music and do classical stuff.

- A. R. Rahman

While Out

I like to see a film and then start scoring it in my mind while doing something unrelated. You just grasp a film and start working, and something unpredictable comes out from a third element. The mind, the more active it is, the more productive it is.

- A. R. Rahman

Some Perfectly

I did a lot of my writing as though I was an academic, doing some piece of research as perfectly as possible.

- A. S. Byatt

I Think Dig

I think the virtue I prize above all others is curiosity. If you look really hard at almost anybody, and try to see why they're doing what they're doing, taking a dig at them ceases to be what you want to do even if you hate them.

- A. S. Byatt

Work Think

If a novelist tells you something she knows or thinks, and you believe her, that is not because either of you think she is God, but because she is doing her work - as a novelist.

- A. S. Byatt

Like Boo

Sometimes I feel like if I'm not getting people to boo me, then I'm not doing my job right.

Made Sacrifices

I don't feel I made any sacrifices at all. I'm doing my best to juggle.

Other Social

Scientists and academics in particular focus on detail and the minutiae. When they talk to each other, they usually don't focus on the broad ideas; they don't focus on social interconnectedness. They focus on the task that they're doing.

- Aaron D. O'Connell

Jazz Tell

It's much like playing jazz, flying. It's multitasking in real time. You have a number of instruments that alone won't tell you exactly what the airplane is doing but together give you a picture of everything that's going on.

- Aaron Diehl

Would Ever

I would be the worst acting coach ever, because I have no idea what I'm doing.

Production Intrigues

The idea of doing a production of 'Carousel' that doesn't feel like it's stuck in the 1950s really intrigues me.

Some PBS

On the PBS recording of 'The Light in the Piazza' backstage, you get to see me doing some sweet lunges down the hallway of the Vivian Beaumont.

- Aaron Lazar

Tell Here

I never really got paid for 'Tell It Like Is,' but I look back at it and say God knew what he was doing; he probably figured that if I had got money back in them days, I wouldn't be here now. That's okay. I'm here. And I'm still singing the song.

- Aaron Neville

Singing Here

I'm here now because of my faith. That's what got me singing and what has kept me singing. That is what I have: what has kept me doing right and has provided me with the chances and the attitude and the skills to do this.

- Aaron Neville

Over I Remember

- Aaron Patzer

Career How

The first part of my career, how I was paying the bills was commercials. I was just doing tons of commercials.

- Aaron Paul

Proud Career

I consider myself absolutely a character actor, and that's what I want as a career. I don't need to be the lead star or any of that, as long as I'm doing stuff that I'm proud of, really.

- Aaron Paul

Love Dangerous

You've got to be picky in this business - if you're not, then I don't think you have the option of longevity. You've got to be choosy and try and do something that's outside of the box and dangerous. I love doing stuff that excites me, gives me that adrenalin rush.

- Aaron Paul

Bad Very

It's very exciting to be able to just work in this business, let alone on stuff you are extremely proud of. So it does make me a little nervous, because 'Breaking Bad' is so special. It's great being part of something so great because people pay attention to you, hopefully because you're doing good work.

- Aaron Paul

Some Careful

In general, when you have success on the field, you're more popular, and you have that fame that comes with it. You realize you're in the public eye more, and you've got to be a little bit more careful about some of the things you're doing out in public and make sure you're smart about the things you say.

- Aaron Rodgers

Lunch I Think

I think you need to be intentional at times about your leadership - where you're eating lunch, who you're interacting with, making guys feel like you're interested in what they're doing. If it's authentic, then it's going to be an easy conversation and easy hangout time.

- Aaron Rodgers

Bring Made

The Internet, in general, I find troubling. The anonymity has made us all meaner and dumber. This thing that was supposed to bring us closer together, I see it doing the opposite.

- Aaron Sorkin

Makeup Some

When I'm doing my own makeup, I just stick to a bit of black liner, some blush and a nude glossy lip.

- Abbey Clancy

Here Couple

I'm used to doing my jobs like a couple of photo shoots a month and a bit of presenting here and there, but the majority of my days are with the baby.

- Abbey Clancy

Good Anything

I've never written anything that I haven't wanted to write again. I want to, and still am, writing 'A Few Good Men' again. I didn't know what I was doing then, and I'm still trying to get it right. I would write 'The Social Network' again if they would let me, I'd write 'Moneyball' again. I would write 'The West Wing' again.

- Aaron Sorkin

About Episode

When we were doing 'The West Wing,' the hardest thing about doing 'The West Wing' was being compared to yourself. You go out there and want every episode to be as good as your best episode. I wrote 88 episodes of 'The West Wing,' and when you do that, one of them is going to be your 88th best, so your 88th best better be pretty good.

- Aaron Sorkin

News Always

While I was doing 'The Newsroom,' I always had the news on on different networks on different TVs around my house and around my office.

- Aaron Sorkin

Behind Jerk

I'll get cast occasionally as sort of the jerk version of myself, and I have fun doing that. But it's really better for everyone if I stay behind the camera.

- Aaron Sorkin

Week Outlines

Right now I'm doing four shows at a time, trying to read four outlines every week, four scripts every week, and watching four rough cuts; it's a lot of good work. It's fun to do it, but it does wear you out.

- Aaron Spelling

Young Very

Nowadays, people always say, how come he's doing such young shows? But they never mention The Mod Squad. I was very proud of that show. It's the first time an African-American guy kissed a white girl.

- Aaron Spelling

Deal About

Writing an encyclopedia is hard. To do anywhere near a decent job, you have to know a great deal of information about an incredibly wide variety of subjects. Writing so much text is difficult, but doing all the background research seems impossible.

- Aaron Swartz

Nobody Else Either

Assume nobody else has any idea what they're doing, either.

- Aaron Swartz

Movie Jennifer

I'll never be Jennifer Lawrence or Tom Cruise, someone who can hold a movie and then be charming and charismatic doing promotion. I haven't got what they've got. But at least I'm now comfortable just being myself.

- Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Other However

People look at stuff like 'Godzilla' and 'Avengers' and think I only do blockbusters, or however you wanna put it, but in reality, I can make double or triple what I got paid for 'Avengers' by doing other stuff - there are other options, but I don't want to work with this person or that person, and so I don't do it.

- Aaron Taylor-Johnson

TV Crossover

It used to be that you kind of got pigeonholed into one thing - you're either a stage actor or a TV actor or a movie actor. Today, there's a lot of crossover with film actors doing television, which never happened before, so those lines are a little bit more blurred than they used to be.

- Aaron Tveit

Hours Half

Coming from a background of being onstage, you're onstage for two and a half hours and you're in it for the whole time no matter what you're doing. Even if you don't have a line, you have to stay in it.

- Aaron Tveit

Sometimes Both Sides

The great joy of doing 'The Daily Show' for me is that I get to sit on the fence between cultures. I am commenting on the absurdity of both sides as an outsider and insider. Sometimes I'm playing the brown guy, and sometimes I'm not, but the best stuff I do always goes back to being a brown kid in a white world.

- Aasif Mandvi

Student Been

I never consciously got into comedy. It was sort of one of those things where I was a theater student, I was acting, I was doing comedy, I was doing dramatic stuff, so it's been something that I've always done and enjoyed doing and had an instinct to be relatively good at.

- Aasif Mandvi

Matter Your

No matter how senior you get in an organization, no matter how well you're perceived to be doing, your job is never done.

- Abagail Johnson

Expecting Here

Every day, you get up, and the world is changing; your customers are expecting more from you. Your competitors are putting pressure on you by doing more and trying to beat you here and beat you there.

- Abagail Johnson

Grateful Which

I feel like a tree. A tree doesn't feel a duty to start doing something about the earth from which it comes. A tree just has to bear fruit, and leaves and blossoms. It doesn't feel grateful to the earth.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Sometimes Carpentry

I spend a lot of time doing carpentry. Sometimes there is nothing that gives me the contentment that sawing a piece of wood does.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Love Girly

I love doing girly stuff with my mum or with Sophia. I took Sophia and a couple of her friends to the Hello Kitty spa. They had chocolate facials and Hello Kitty mani-pedis. I put it on my Twitter and got lots of abuse for it, but I think it's just a nice girly thing.

- Abbey Clancy

Thought Fact

We just sort of thought a Web series would be a cool thing to be able to send to our parents to show them that we were, in fact, actually doing comedy.

- Abbi Jacobson

Saturday Dad

I recently saw this home video where my brother is playing this character Arsenio Grimley, who is a mix of Arsenio Hall and Ed Grimley - which, clearly, is my parents' doing, because he's, like, 10. He's the host, I'm every guest, and then my dad is Elton John. That was a Saturday night.

- Abbi Jacobson

Love Art

I really want to continue doing art. I would love to go back to doing paintings one day.

- Abbi Jacobson

Art Always

I wasn't in the art world at all as a kid; I was just creative, and we were always doing arts and crafts.

- Abbi Jacobson

Reading Books Use

We live in such a celebrity-driven culture, but all those people have to go buy toilet paper, and all those people have products they use and their favorite sweet treats. They all have to write to-do lists, and they're all reading books - well, hopefully most people are doing those things.

- Abbi Jacobson

Tears Feels

Whenever you get to win, you feel the satisfaction of all of your hard work, all the sacrifices, all the blood, sweat and tears. It feels right and makes you realise that you are really doing the right thing.

- Abby Wambach

Soccer Mom And Dad

I don't know if I found soccer or if soccer found me. Especially because when I was younger, I was doing it, in a lot of ways, because I wanted the attention of my mom and dad.

- Abby Wambach

Against Some

Some people are ok with doing nothing all day after they retire, but then some people if they had nothing to do would go mad and start banging their heads against a wall.

- Abdul Qadeer Khan

Some Quickly

I believe it is an important project, it makes the cost of doing business lower and they will make us more competitive at the same time, it will also provide some satisfaction to the people who demand services for them of the quality they want and also quickly.

- Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

Muslim Couple

Jordan has to show the Arab world that there's another way of doing things. We're a monarchy, yes, but if we can show democracy that leads to a two-, three-, four-party system - left, right and center - in a couple of years' time, then the Muslim Brotherhood will no longer be something to contend with.

- Abdullah II of Jordan

Other Things

Life is what happens when you're doing other things, right?

- Abel Ferrara

I Am Happy Films

If people are looking forward to my films, then I am happy, and I must be doing something right.

- Abhishek Bachchan

Think Sometimes

Don't assume that the answers are out there in the form of somebody else already doing something. Sometimes they are. But you have to think beyond that.

- Abigail Johnson

Here Putting

No matter how senior you get in an organization, no matter how well you're perceived to be doing, your job is never done. Every day, you get up and the world is changing; your customers are expecting more from you. Your competitors are putting pressure on you by doing more and trying to beat you here and beat you there.

- Abigail Johnson

Artist I Think

I have a general sense of mission, and I intuitively know when something is influencing that mission. I think this is what I'm supposed to be doing. Doors keep opening. In the end, it's the best use of my skills. I've finally consented to the idea that I'm an artist.

- Abigail Washburn

Which Means

Work is that which you dislike doing but perform for the sake of external rewards. At school, this takes the form of grades. In society, it means money, status, privilege.

- Abraham Maslow

Shame Very

As a young physician in the mid-'80s, caring for people who had contracted H.I.V., I lost two of my patients to suicide at a time when the virus was doing very little harm to them. I have always thought of them as having been killed by a metaphor, by the burden of secrecy and shame associated with the disease.

- Abraham Verghese

Think I Think

I think most of the people, once you see a Kiss show, you kinda get spoiled because I don't think there's anybody out there that's doing a bigger or a better show than us.

- Ace Frehley

Some Here

I got a little house in East L.A. and did the gardening. I was doing some acting here and there, doing my own thing... getting back to reality.

- Adam Ant

Stupid Been

I really would have been stupid not to have done it. It was also a film that was actually happening, I mean, Miramax was doing it, and it had a kind of legitimacy to it. And once I read the script, I was there.

- Adam Arkin

Love Big

I want to continue doing as big a variety of things as I can do, and if that means I have the honor of getting to do more feature work, I would love that. I know that if I make any other long-term TV commitments, it's not going to be on a drama.

- Adam Arkin

Love Parent

It was never the fame or fortune that drove me to act. It was something I love and enjoy doing it. A lot of people identify who they are by what they do and that's not me. It's what I do but not who I am. Who I am is a parent. I'm a family man.

- Adam Baldwin

Smoke Instinct

I never understood the realism of an imaginary circumstance. While I was doing 'Smoke Signals,' I relied on my instinct and what I grew up with. I had this energy, but it was a one-dimensional thing.

- Adam Beach

Nation Move

You can't propel a nation to move forward if all you are doing is taking something from them.

- Adam Beach

Hammer Very

In my early 20s I was so miserable doing construction, I wanted something that paid money. I liked nice stuff. I liked cars and architecture, and things that cost money. I wanted to not swing a hammer, and make money... and not do stuff that was dirty. I attempted to get into comedy. I started to do stand-up, but I wasn't very good at it.

- Adam Carolla

Show Express

When you're doing a radio show, you can express yourself.

- Adam Carolla

Love Own

A lot of guys and people in our society think that chicks just love dudes with money. Chicks love dudes who are successful who happen to have money - do you know what I mean? Chicks are attracted to dudes that are doing their own thing.

- Adam Carolla

Thought Current

I thought writing about somebody current would be a little closer to what I'm used to doing.

- Adam Clymer

Law Appropriate

The public has a right to know what kind of monitoring the government is doing, and there should be a public discussion of the appropriate trade-offs between law enforcement and privacy rights.

- Adam Cohen

Love Stool

I always wanted to be a comedic actor - that's what I wanted from the job - to do comedy and to create my own comedy. But I still love doing stand-up and will probably be doing it forever. I'd love to be an old guy who can't really walk, can't really stand-up, and I have to sit on the stool and tell jokes.

- Adam DeVine

My Life I Think

You want to be excited about what you're doing. So whenever I get tired, I think, 'Would ten-year-old Adam be pretty stoked on what I'm doing and what's happening?' So I just live my life as if I'm using my ten-year-old brain.

- Adam DeVine

My Life Patriotic

I auditioned in Chicago for Juilliard and didn't get in. I was basically living in a back room of my parents' house, paying rent and not doing anything with my life. I'd like to say it was patriotic to join the Marines, but it was also that I was doing nothing honorable with my life and spending too much time at McDonald's.

- Adam Driver

Been Very

Acting, believe it or not, can get very self-involved! I feel fortunate to have been able to work on things with people who have a very specific point of view and perspective, and who feel like they're doing something very active.

- Adam Driver

Some Commodity

The Marine Corps is some of the best acting training you could have. Having that responsibility for people's lives, suddenly time becomes a really valuable commodity and you want to make the most of it. And for acting, you just have to do the work, just keep doing it.

- Adam Driver

Think Which

If I'm not doing something or working on something, I literally just sit in the room and think, which I don't think is productive. I won't go outside for days.

- Adam Driver

Living Plays

I mean, I did plays in high school, but I was convinced you couldn't make a living doing it.

- Adam Driver

Anyway Odd Jobs

I did plays in high school, but I was convinced you couldn't make a living doing it. You don't have a lot of options in Indiana anyway, though, so I didn't want to stay there. I graduated early and worked a bunch of really odd jobs, and then I joined the Marines.

- Adam Driver

Myself College

College wasn't something I saw myself doing.

- Adam Driver

Studio United

I had done another show called 'United States of Cars,' which was a pilot that didn't get picked up. And they said, 'You know, we're doing 'Top Gear,' and would you like to meet the guys?' It was the wild - most wild audition I ever had because I never went to a studio or a producer's office.

- Adam Ferrara

College 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

Myself III

Aside from 'Hatchet II' and 'Hatchet III,' I've never repeated myself. I try to keep doing things that are totally different.

- Adam Green

Nature Planet

We live on a planet that is amazing, beautiful, and full of wonder but not protected from powerful destructive forces of nature. We are capable of doing wonderful and selfless things but also self-absorbed and harmful things. This is the world we live in.

- Adam Hamilton

Nature Laws

God seldom suspends the laws of nature, just as God does not remove free will to keep evil people from doing evil things.

- Adam Hamilton

Reason Act

If 'everything happens for a reason,' then every act of evil is ultimately God's doing.

- Adam Hamilton

Through Works

If God is not sending earthquakes, destroying economies and inflicting pain upon human beings, what is God doing? God works through people, calling them to help their neighbors in need. God comforts His people, walking with them even 'through the valley of the shadow of death.'

- Adam Hamilton

Me Solo

Doing the stereotypical solo bores me.

- Adam Jones

About Something Good

It's not about earning a paycheck, it's about doing something good that you believe in.

- Adam Kinzinger
