Door

Total Quotes : 820
Tone Shawn

Keeping Some

Every day, some act of kindness comes my way, even if it's just someone opening the door. It happens every day if you keep an eye out for it. Keeping an eye out, that's the key.

- Aaron Neville

Back Named

I used to always sing my way into the movies and the basketball games or whatever. I'd sing for whoever's on the door, and they'd let me in. I used to think I was Nat King Cole back in the day, you know. So I'd sing something like, 'Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you,' and they'd let me in.

- Aaron Neville

Young Year

Each year I host a leadership summit in my district, and my biggest advice to young people is get experience. Get your foot in the door.

- Aaron Schock

Scan Front Page

I get the 'The New York Times' and 'Los Angeles Times' thrown at my door every morning. I'll read the front page of 'The New York Times,' then the op-eds, then scan the arts section and then the sports section. Then I do the same with the 'L.A. Times.'

- Aaron Sorkin

Enjoy Lot

For me, I can't watch violence when it's too grotesque, and it's just like, that's revolting to watch. I don't enjoy it. But when it's a Tarantino film, I'm lining up outside the door to see it, and I'm expecting to see something really crazy, a lot of blood, and for it to be funny.

- Aaron Taylor-Johnson

Making Gonna

Making money is not gonna change anything about what I am, except I won't answer the door.

- Abel Ferrara

I Think Half

Less than the dust beneath thy chariot wheel, less than the weed that grows beside thy door.

- Adela Florence Nicolson

The family's dream was to see me receive a high degree abroad and to return to become a university professor - on the door to my study room, a sign was placed reading 'Dr. Ahmed,' even though I was still far from becoming a doctor.

- Ahmed Zewail

Never Designers

There's no conversation happening between plus-size women and designers. The door is never open.

If you want people to support you, then you have to support them. You have to think long about what you did for people who voted for you, made phone calls for you, who went door to door for you.

- Alan Grayson

Think I Think

I think there should be laughs in everything. Sometimes, it's a slammed door, a pie in the face or just a recognition of our frailties.

- Alan Rickman

Muslim Poorly

The eight-year-long Algerian war was to bring down six French prime ministers, open the door to de Gaulle - and come close to destroying him, too. The war was the last of the grand-style colonial struggles, but, perhaps more to the point, it was also the first campaign in which poorly equipped Muslim mujahedin licked one of the top Western armies.

- Alistair Horne

Next Very

I tell residents, if you gave me two patients with identical problems, and one of them had family at the bedside with a lot of laughter, plus photos and a quilt from home, and next door was another patient who was alone every time I came by - I'm going to be very nervous about the isolated patient's mental status.

- Allan Hamilton

Hope Tell

I can't tell you the number of stories I've told with a female protagonist don't get bought, or they do get bought and get changed drastically. Or, I will literally write into the script different races, and they get cast all-white. I hope that stops and it opens the door for more voices to be heard in movies.

- Allison Schroeder

Here Role

I'm aware me getting a role out of Chicago as a complete unknown is an insane anomaly, so I knew I'd have to get out here to L.A. as soon as the door opened.

- Allison Tolman

Thoughts Deeds

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.

- Albert Camus

Knowledge Does

Knowledge of what is does not open the door directly to what should be.

- Albert Einstein

Next Religious

The supreme satisfaction is to be able to despise one's neighbor and this fact goes far to account for religious intolerance. It is evidently consoling to reflect that the people next door are headed for hell.

- Aleister Crowley

Next Other

When I started, I'd hear other people saying, 'God, she's so bizarre-looking,' because I didn't look like the girl next door. But I was just normal. I was the girl next door. There were people in high fashion I could better relate to who were doing something more interesting and not talking this sort of rubbish.

Still Which

I still have dreams in which someone is coming to the door.

See Too Late

Sometimes we stare so long at a door that is closing that we see too late the one that is open.

Which Another

When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

- Alexander Graham Bell

Concerned Private

I do not recognize the right of the public to break in the front door of a man's private life in order to satisfy the gaze of the curious... I do not think it right to dissect living men even for the advancement of science. So far as I am concerned, I prefer a post mortem examination to vivisection without anaesthetics.

- Alexander Graham Bell

Love Suspicion

Pure love and suspicion cannot dwell together: at the door where the latter enters, the former makes its exit.

- Alexandre Dumas

Thinking Some

He was thinking alone, and seriously racking his brain to find a direction for this single force four times multiplied, with which he did not doubt, as with the lever for which Archimedes sought, they should succeed in moving the world, when some one tapped gently at his door.

- Alexandre Dumas

Book About

The best thing I ever learned when I first started acting is that you audition, and then you forget about it when you walk out the door. Even when you have a callback, you can't bank on things until you actually book that job, or your heart will just be broken over and over again.

- Allison Tolman

Skin Heat

Basting is evil. Basting does nothing for the meat. Why? Skin. Skin is designed to keep stuff out of the bird, so basting just lets heat out of the oven. That means the turkey will take longer to cook... so don't touch that door!

- Alton Brown

Big Visiting

I rented a house in Favignana, off the coast of Sicily, in the mid or late '90s. There was a revolving door of visiting friends and family - we played games, painted our faces, went swimming naked, cooked big meals, rode around on motorini, and had great cappuccinos.

- Amber Valletta

Will Fulfill

Even if actors ask for more money, will producers fulfill their demands? They might just show us the door.

- Amruta Khanvilkar

Next Senator

I called the book 'The Senator Next Door,' not 'The President Next Door.'

- Amy Klobuchar

Your Coworkers

In any job, you can come under attack or have a door slammed in your face. You do want to listen to critics; you don't want to be in a cocoon and never change. Get a second opinion from coworkers and friends. Know that criticism can be valid, but don't take it personally.

- Amy Klobuchar

Parent Using

There are certain things you learn to do as a parent - using every single part of your body because you're multitasking all the time. You're holding the baby and you're closing the door with your left foot.

- Amy Ryan

Prophet Movements

There comes the time at every Passover seder when someone will open a door to let in the prophet Elijah. At that moment, something like a spell invariably descends over the celebrants, and everyone stares into the doorway, trying to make out the quiet movements of the prophet as he glides his way in and takes the empty seat among us.

- Andre Aciman

Happiest County

The happiest moments of my childhood were spent on my grandmother's front porch in Durham, N.C., or at her sister's farmhouse in Orange County, where chickens paraded outside the kitchen's screen door and hams were cured in the smokehouse.

- Andre Leon Talley

Love Private

You think intercourse is a private act; it's not, it's a social act. Men are sexually predatory in life; and women are sexually manipulative. When two individuals come together and leave their gender outside the bedroom door, then they make love.

- Andrea Dworkin

Bed Another

The best pop music is the songs that a group of people can dance to, but you can also listen to in your bed and cry. That's something obviously that The Beatles started and... so having that darkness there opens another door.

- Andrew Dost

Law Country

The safety of the republic being the supreme law, and Texas having offered us the key to the safety of our country from all foreign intrigues and diplomacy, I say accept the key... and bolt the door at once.

Stupid Think

I think I was probably that kid in the neighborhood who you could expect once or twice a year to be knocking on your door trying to sell you something stupid.

- Andrew Mason

Never Great Way

Local businesses have never had a great way to get customers in the door.

- Andrew Mason

I Think Against

I don't want to put words in Geithner's mouth, but I think he is generally against the revolving door of government officials taking jobs with companies that they have overseen or in roles that involve lobbying. At minimum, I'm pretty sure he felt that way about himself.

- Andrew Ross Sorkin

Wait Always

Women take so long to get ready, but when they get out of the bathroom, they look smokin' hot. That's the struggle of men throughout history, waiting by the door. The wait is so worth it. Always.

- Andy Grammer

Couple I Remember

I sold door to door for a couple years. As the years recede from the event, I remember less about it, which is probably good for my mind. It was home improvement in Cerritos California, Buena Park, that area.

- Andy Kindler

Bring Terror

The closing of a door can bring blessed privacy and comfort - the opening, terror. Conversely, the closing of a door can be a sad and final thing - the opening a wonderfully joyous moment.

- Andy Rooney

Race Go

I can't even walk out the door without, even to go to the race track, without my MAC lip gloss.

- Angela Cope

Woman Feet

I'm the type of woman you might say is too good. I'll massage a man's feet, have dinner cooked when he gets home. But once they leave, the door is closed, and the locks are changed.

- Angie Stone

Distance New

When I lived in New York, not only did I have safety locks on the door but I had the music going, keeping the city at a distance, trying to find creative time and peace and so forth.

- Ann Beattie

Unconscious Knock

I never know when somebody's going to knock on the door of my own unconscious in a way that I wouldn't have anticipated.

- Anna Deavere Smith

Been Buy

It's like an OCD thing, it's not as much something I enjoy. If I see a chapstick that I've never tried, I have to buy it. And then once that door's been opened, I have to check the whole store to see if there are more chapsticks that I don't have.

- Anna Kendrick

Saturday Other

I come from Beverley in East Yorkshire, and no one there would step outside their front door, or even their back door, on a Saturday night - or any other time, for that matter - unless they were dressed to the nines.

- Anna Maxwell Martin

Fiction Through

Women are being welcomed into science fiction, but it's through the back door.

Death Jesus

Death is a door. When we close our eyes in this life, we will open our eyes to Jesus.

- Anne Graham Lotz

Whirlwind Annihilate

To really ask is to open the door to the whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner.

- Anne Rice

Fact Very

What's interesting to me is the fact that creatively, I can do anything now and people will pay attention, and if I suck, hopefully they will stop paying attention very quickly, but if I'm good, then I have my foot in the door, and people have paid attention, and I did a good job, and people are like, 'Oh, wow!'

- Ansel Elgort

Woman Next

I believe in the difference that a man or woman can make at the top of an organisation. Once you have a really good guy in place at the top, the next most important thing is continuity of management as opposed to a revolving door.

- Anthony Pratt

Color Other

If you win, if you make money. If you do quality work, then other people of color, whatever color that is, can get in the door.

- Antoine Fuqua

Think Always

I'd like to think that the door is always open for just the best actor for the role, you know? Race or gender shouldn't have anything to do with it, unless the character or story is focused on that for some particular reason.

- Antoine Fuqua

Ed Sullivan Booked

And I was booked once to go on 'Ed Sullivan' and I got bumped and ran out the back door crying.

- Aretha Franklin

Next Stage

I'm the lady next door when I'm not on stage.

- Aretha Franklin

Always Next

If I go on dates, my mom is always with me. She's always there making sure I'm all right. Like if I go to see a movie with a boy, she'll go to dinner next door.

- Ariel Winter

Dress Been

My entire life had been this long, pressured conversation about the family I represented. 'When you walk out the door, you represent us. You have to dress well and make sure your hair is combed.'

- Armie Hammer

Before Nixon

When Nixon opened the door to China in the early 1970s, Chinese artists got their first view of the West. Suddenly five centuries of Western art lay before them as a stylistic smorgasbord. Chinese artists could reinterpret it out of admiration or try to replace it. They choose the former.

- Arne Glimcher

Republican Party

It's time to stop thinking of the Republican Party as an exclusive club where your ideological card is checked at the door, and start thinking about how we can attract more solution-based leaders like Nathan Fletcher and Anthony Adams.

- Arnold Schwarzenegger

Spaghetti Half

Broke my femur on a cruise with my wife in Italy. I'd walked back to my cabin after dinner with half a plate of spaghetti when I leaned in to open the door. Turns out it was already open, so I fell flat on my face like something from the Keystone Kops.

- Art Donovan

Tell Inhumanity

You're going to tell me that things aren't right in Cuba, and so we shouldn't engage. It's lunacy. Look outside your door and see the inhumanity of Americans... that we perpetrate on a daily basis in our lives... and then tell me that you're going to isolate Cuba as an example. I'm sorry; that's unacceptable.

- Arturo O'Farrill

Very Became

When I was working on Eye of the Beholder, I played a character who is so aloof that my whole lifestyle became very aloof. If someone knocked on my door, there was a part of me that went into a rage, because I wanted to be isolated and alone.

- Ashley Judd

Think Here

I try to leave my work at work, and check my work-baggage at the door before I go outside of here. I'm not a super method actor, and I think that all the answers are inside the script.

- Ashton Holmes

Receive Flies

There is no one, says another, whom fortune does not visit once in his life; but when she does not find him ready to receive her, she walks in at the door, and flies out at the window.

- Charles de Montesquieu

Hope Face

When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God.

- Charles L. Allen

Never Answer

Aunt Marion was right... Never marry a musician, and never answer the door.

- Charles M. Schulz

Over Other

Other writers tell me about these bushel baskets delivered at the front door. If I've gotten 50 letters over the last 18 years, I'd be surprised.

- Charles McCarry

Very Badly

Literally from the moment I came in the door of MIT, it was very clear that a highly productive 40-year partnership between U.S. research universities and the federal government was badly eroding.

- Charles Vest

Future Some

I just don't want to live like I used to. And at some point, I'm going to put a gag order on myself in terms of talking about the past. I've got to slam the door and deal with the present and the future.

- Charlie Sheen

Everybody Our

Tulsa was the kind of place where you could go to any door and borrow a cup of sugar. Everybody knew everybody. Truthfully, I don't even remember dealing with any racism in our town; we all got along.

- Charlie Wilson

Bed I Think

I have a problem with cabinets being messy and people just shoving things in and closing the door. I will lie in bed and not be able to sleep because I'll say to myself: 'I think I saw something in that cabinet that just shouldn't be there.'

- Charlize Theron

Behind Through

The fan mail I get every day is incredible. It piles through the door from not just Britain but everywhere. It is so great to have that support behind me - everyone says I am an inspiration. It is great.

- Charlotte Dujardin

Give Against

We ask them to remove the missiles deployed against Taiwan, give up their military threat, and instead let us together open the door to cross-Strait peaceful and stable dialogue and negotiations.

- Chen Shui-bian

New Everybody

Do I have any advice for someone new to No. 10? Never open the door in your nightie. And that everybody has to adjust to it in a way that's right for their family.

- Cherie Blair

Next Very

I tell my students, it's not difficult to identify with somebody like yourself, somebody next door who looks like you. What's more difficult is to identify with someone you don't see, who's very far away, who's a different color, who eats a different kind of food. When you begin to do that then literature is really performing its wonders.

- Chinua Achebe

Worry Stool

When suffering knocks at your door and you say there is no seat for him, he tells you not to worry because he has brought his own stool.

- Chinua Achebe

Politics Necessary

I assure, the door to politics is never closed. Whatever medium is necessary to reach the masses, I will take that - be it cinema or politics.

- Chiranjeevi

Next First One

Anyone who's had a tattoo knows once you get your first one, as you're walking out the door, you're planning the next.

Think Reason

You have to think there's a reason for everything. When a door closes another door opens.

- Chris Daughtry

Process Which

Sometimes, as I feel a door or an exit point in my work is closing, I'll try to create an opening so as not to stifle the creative process, which I see as a process that's never-ending.

- Chris Ofili

Work Makes

My work makes me a better mom. It gives me a little door to step out of my parenting and bring the excitement from my day back home.

- Christie Brinkley

Run Drop

I can't live without knowing I have my extensions and ponytail. So I can run out the door at the drop of a hat.

- Christie Brinkley

Very Certain Way

I was very pushed to look a certain way and act a certain way, and it wasn't me, but I played by their rules to get my foot in the door.

- Christina Aguilera

Gypsy Go Home

I wanted to have a home where I could go home and unlock my door and go in and be settled. I was tired of being a gypsy.

Tea Town

When the Tea Party comes to town, compromise goes out the door.

Bus 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

Hire Just Be Yourself

You start acting just as soon as you walk into the door of that casting office. You can't just be yourself because they don't want to hire you.

- Clifton Collins, Jr.

Country Certainly

Country radio certainly widens the boundaries of what I can do. Other artists may do something more edgy that gets on radio and that opens the door for me to be more edgy, I think.

- Clint Black

Studio Hi

One of my earliest memories is being inside the recording studio and I see the shadow of a figure that looks an awful lot like Walt Disney. Then the door opened and Mr. Disney walked in and said, 'Hi Clint.' I won't ever forget that.

Time Hoping

Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.
