Projects

Total Quotes : 534
Independent Dip

A lot of times you have to dip into the independent world to find the really great projects and the really great scripts. They're out there - you just have to search hard.

- A. J. Cook

Some Very

Some things are very low profile, but if they excite me creatively, I accept them. Sometimes there are high-profile projects, and you have to do it. We all have human limitations. It is a painful decision to turn things down. Even accepting 'Slumdog Millionaire' was a decision that I had to sacrifice another project.

- A. R. Rahman

Trick Rotating

I usually work on a film soundtrack for two years, turning in a song every few months, and that keeps my creative energy high, because I'm constantly rotating projects. The trick is to make sure I don't work too hard and get exhausted.

- A. R. Rahman

Mine Over

Don Was is a friend of mine; we've done projects together over the years.

- Aaron Neville

Living Through

When I was living in the projects, I had a mop stick for my horse. I wanted to be Gene Autry or Roy Rogers, so I would ride my mop through the projects.

- Aaron Neville

Other Through

When I'm singing, it's a mixture of my innocence in the projects, my mom and dad. It's all the good and the bad, the laughs and the frowns that I went through and seen other people go through. Then you be trying to write it. Whatever's coming out, you try and make it all cool.

- Aaron Neville

Bad Been

It's so funny, I've done so many projects where I've been interrogated. I guest starred on almost every hour drama, and I'm always the guy they think is the bad guy but then they find out is not.

- Aaron Paul

Nile Allow

Seriously, who really cares how long the Nile river is, or who was the first to discover cheese? How is memorizing that ever going to help anyone? Instead, we need to give kids projects that allow them to exercise their minds and discover things for themselves.

- Aaron Swartz

Some About

When I talk to some of the younger filmmakers, they are so worried about their films that, eventually, this state of being worried reflects itself in and helps the final work. Whereas, with projects that are meticulously planned, you look at the end result and it is full of emptiness.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Always Movie

A good movie is made by an initial burst of energy, the way that, when you are in school, your class exercises are always better than your final projects.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Challenges Across

One of the biggest challenges for the MENA region is unemployment coupled with high population growth rates. The World Bank is committed to supporting infrastructure projects that will help with job creation across the region.

- Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair

Generations Make

Families don't make projects for five years, they make projects for generations.

- Achille Maramotti

Alphabet While

Alphabet would be a holding company to house its wackier or noncore efforts - like its Verily life sciences, Waymo self-driving cars, and Loon Internet balloon projects - while Google's advertising-oriented business would stand apart and continue to drive the company's finances.

- Adam Lashinsky

Big Mostly

Mostly I make lists for projects. This can be daunting. Breaking something big into its constituent parts will help you organize your thoughts, but it can also force you to confront the depth of your ignorance and the hugeness of the task. That's OK. The project may be the lion, but the list is your whip.

- Adam Savage

Been Movie

I'm a lifelong movie addict, and one of my favorite projects is making replica props and costumes. Nearly every one of these - from R2D2 to Hellboy's revolver - ends with the paint job. And it's not just cosmetic. The paint literally tells a story: what this thing is made of, where it's been, what it's been used for, and for how long.

- Adam Savage

Hundred Skeletons

I had saved a few hundred photos of dodo skeletons into my 'Creative Projects' folder - it's a repository for my brain, everything that I could possibly be interested in. Any time I have an Internet connection, there's a sluice of stuff moving into there, everything from beautiful rings to cockpit photos.

- Adam Savage

Production Been

I have a bunch of concepts and ideas that I want to do but I have also been growing my production company in general and looking to branch out of projects that I am directing and producing.

- Adrian Grenier

Humble City

I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth; I came from really humble beginnings - the projects of New York City - and I worked my way to get to where I am.

- Adrienne Bailon

Kid Wealthy

If you decide you want to change your life around, it doesn't matter where you came from, what you did, if you were incarcerated or you are from the projects, if you are an uppity kid who came from a really wealthy family - and all of them do drugs and are into that life - it doesn't matter; come as you are, and God does his work.

- Adrienne Bailon

Within Figure

We make a contract within ourselves as actors or directors or writers about how much of ourselves we let into projects. You can actually figure out before you work on something how much blood you will have to let emotionally.

- Ajay Naidu

Love Feel

I love working if it's with people who are capable of having a good time. People with a little bit of enjoyment of what they do. If it's enormous pressure, and people feel that their lives are at stake, then it's agony. So I try to pick projects where I feel like I'm going to avoid those traps.

- Alan Arkin

Films Trained

Sometimes people get really sniffy about the films you choose if you've done more dramatic projects or you're classically trained.

- Alan Cumming

Given Theoretical

Architecture students are generally given theoretical projects, often located at distant locations, and told to come up with a design.

- Alan Huffman

Scientist Before

As a scientist in charge of space sensors and entire space missions before I was at NASA, I myself was involved in projects that overran. But that's no excuse for remaining silent about this growing problem or failing to champion reform.

- Alan Stern

Over Costs

The costs of badly-run NASA projects are paid for with cutbacks or delays in NASA projects that didn't go over budget. Hence the guilty are rewarded and the innocent are punished.

- Alan Stern

Through Ryan

Besides the devastating impact that the Ryan budget has directly on individuals, it does nothing to support job creation or our global competitiveness. Investments in both are drastically affected through cuts in funding for transportation and infrastructure projects, as well as funding for research and development.

- Albio Sires

Feel Another

With any good projects, I feel like the off-screen chemistry factors on-screen. It's great when you don't have to force it, but when it's not there, you better focus on getting there because, as we live with these characters, we spend more time with one another than we do our families at home.

- Aldis Hodge

New Which

Sorry, but there is no pleasure in finding new ways of saying the same stuff about projects which tanked.

- Alex Cox

Small Nonprofit

In the years after the expedition to Chad, I started the Honnold Foundation, a small nonprofit that was my attempt to do something positive in the world. I sought out projects that both helped the environment and improved peoples' standards of living. The more I researched, the more I gravitated toward solar.

- Alex Honnold

Thought Boss

Both Neil and I had done solo projects where we were the boss and I just thought that if he was willing to get into it, it would really be a good experience for him.

- Alex Lifeson

Discovered

Now that we've discovered how to actually develop policies and projects holistically, if we can get the barriers out of the way and release the creativity that's in our universities, our farming organizations, amongst our farmers and land managers, we'll be astounded. As I'd like to express it, the human spirit will fly.

- Allan Savory

Difference Big

I went from the projects to a real house. It was a big difference.

- Allen Iverson

Woman Been

I've been rewritten on past projects and thought, 'That's not what she was - she was this really powerful woman, and there's nothing wrong with that.' I'm going to keep writing them, and hopefully people will start making them.

- Allison Schroeder

World Want

If you want the world to pay for projects, you have to be able to display why you're worthy.

- Amanda Palmer

Flag Films

I don't find anything interesting about the choices a character faces in major films or theater projects. The characters are just cut-out dolls with the American flag sewn on them.

- Amanda Plummer

Me Level

The excitement level for me working on projects is really not a bit different from when I was 26.

- Amar Bose

Been Swung

I have swung on a flying trapeze, explored a glacier, and been hit in the face by a shark's tail while scuba diving. I like to throw myself fully into projects and adventures, which is probably how I managed to publish a book in the first place.

- Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Rather Before

No new projects at the moment. There are restrictions to how much I can take on. And I need to finish those that I am committed to do before thinking ahead. But I'd rather they take final shape before we talk of them.

- Amitabh Bachchan

Achievement Year

I always liked my teachers, and I was in a lot of after-school projects. I was a Girl Scout until my senior year, when I couldn't be a Girl Scout anymore. I was in clubs like Junior Achievement, and I ran track and field. My grades were good, but then toward 11th grade they were nothing. I always went to summer school.

- Amy Sedaris

Need Better Time

I need to find those projects more often: the ones that really, really speak to me. I do better work in those situations and have a better time.

- Andre Holland

Career Initiated

Since 'School of Rock' opened, for the first time in my career, ever, really, I've had a lot of projects offered to me. It's extraordinary. Normally, I've initiated them all myself.

- Andrew Lloyd Webber

Been Very

As an actor, you generally don't get to choose what projects you are part of, so I've been very fortunate that 'The Book of Mormon' was something I got to be part of. I don't want to be lofty, but it was groundbreaking, in many ways, for musical theater, so that was really thrilling to be part of.

- Andrew Rannells

Doing Some

I am a particular fan of integrative exercise - that is, exercise that occurs in the course of doing some productive activity such as gardening, bicycling to work, doing home improvement projects and so on.

- Andrew Weil

Doing Films

I'd already started directing short films when we were doing 'Lord of the Rings,' then videogame projects.

- Andy Serkis

Weekends

With so much money invested in their most promising projects, Hollywood executives will understandably do everything in their power to make their products a success in the marketplace. Therefore, the most expensive films often also get the highest marketing budgets, and are slotted into the most favorable opening weekends.

- Anita Elberse

Direct Been

The more you create, the more ambitious you become with your projects. Short films were a direct result of over 200 web series sketches and vlogs. After you create enough 2-minute videos, you start to wonder what else there is. Deadlines and discipline and quantity with a focus on quality have always been what keeps me going.

- Anna Akana

Through About

I always tend to think, even in residential projects, about what a space is being asked to do - where is it located, what are the circumstances, where can I attack the problem, so to speak. How can you create a narrative for people moving through it? How can you convey its character?

- Annabelle Selldorf

Parent Sprung

To understand how black projects began, and how they continue to function today, one must start with the creation of the atomic bomb. The men who ran the Manhattan Project wrote the rules about black operations. The atomic bomb was the mother of all black projects, and it is the parent from which all black operations have sprung.

- Annie Jacobsen

Liberating Get

As I get older, the book projects are - liberating is one word, but they really are me.

- Annie Leibovitz

Celebrity Some

Do you want to be an actor, or do you want to be a celebrity? I made that decision when I went to Juilliard. I wanted to be an actor. So, if I get the opportunity to be an actor and do some cool, fun and interesting projects, I'm going to do that.

- Anthony Mackie

Want Audience

As a producer, I want to back projects, talents, and scripts that speak to me not just as someone from the industry, but as an audience.

- Anushka Sharma

Compare Very

I find it very difficult to compare any two projects because they're all such different beasts.

- Anya Taylor-Joy

Love Became

I'd love to say I made the smart decision of picking projects that became hits, but with 'The Good Wife,' I read the script and something inside me said, 'I love this, I want to do this.'

- Archie Panjabi

Always Having

Having portrayed English-speaking Indian characters in British and American projects, I have always wanted to use my mother tongue in an Indian film.

- Art Malik

Concerned Bankers

Bankers cannot afford to be concerned with only the economic aspects of projects. There may be serious implications on the natural environment, the urban environment, on human culture.

- Arthur Erickson

Production Phase

If you look at the international markets, for projects that are capital-intensive, the minute the construction phase is completed and production is supposed to start, normally all these loans get refinanced.

- Arundhati Bhattacharya

Think Other

'Siya Ke Ram' will leave us with hardly any scope to think of other projects. And I wouldn't want to work on something and not be whole-hearted in it, either.

- Ashish Sharma

Doing Types

I want to keep doing projects that speak for people within the community and tell different types of meaningful stories.

- Ashton Sanders

Grow Career

For my career, I want to be able to do projects that have serious context to them or that make me grow as a person and an artist after the experience.

- Ashton Sanders

Doing I Think

It's all about trying to find those projects where you get to enjoy yourself, because I think that's when you create as well: when you're genuinely excited about something. Then you're not just doing it because it's your job.

- Alexander Skarsgard

Want Resources

I want to stay hungry. I really believe my resources are best used to help projects that make the world suck less.

- Alexis Ohanian

Give Making

I would like to continue making music and acting in projects that give me a lot of satisfaction.

- Alicia Machado

Green Over

As cities have grown rapidly across the nation, many have neglected infrastructure projects and paved over green spaces that once absorbed rainwater.

- Charles Duhigg

Half Couple

I'm trying my hand at writing. I'm writing a couple of projects for HBO, a half hour comedy and a miniseries.

- Charles S. Dutton

Affect About

With each of those projects I wasn't thinking about how the layout would really affect the story I was working on - it wasn't the content that was affecting the layout, it was, how I wanted to draw at that point in time.

- Chester Brown

Every Day Notable

I'd have to say that the things that mean the most to me are the examples of original comic art that I'm able to look at every day, most of them either by notable friends and/or for projects that I've worked on.

- Chip Kidd

Need Needs

The government needs to help those in need, but members of Congress shouldn't take advantage of the situation and use a national tragedy as an opportunity to spend taxpayer dollars on their pet projects.

- Chris Chocola

Couple Crappy

I worked in the book publishing business for nearly two decades before I turned my attention to writing, first with a couple ghostwriting projects, plus a crappy novel that absolutely no one wanted to publish. Then I moved to Luxembourg for my wife's job and found the inspiration for 'The Expats.'

- Chris Pavone

Workman Mostly

Before I wrote my first novel, 'The Expats,' I spent nearly two decades at various arms of publishing houses such as Random House, Workman, and HarperCollins, mostly as an acquisitions editor. But a more accurate title for that job might be rejection editor: while I acquired maybe a dozen projects per year, I'd reject hundreds upon hundreds.

- Chris Pavone

Prove Been

I don't feel the need to have to break out of anything or prove that I'm 'edgy.' Been there, done that mentality. I'm just ready to tackle on new projects that are challenging and help me continue to grow as an artist.

- Chrissie Fit

Lesson Frustrated

I have no projects on the horizon. I don't feel frustrated. It's a great life lesson for me.

- Christine Taylor

Like Precedent

All our projects are like fabulous expeditions. The story of each project is unique. Our projects have no precedent.

- Christo

Very Same Thing

It's very important to understand that we never do the same thing twice; each of our projects is unique. We'll never do another 'Gates.' Each project is a unique image. We do not know in advance how the work will look. I do preparatory drawings, but they are only projections of our vision.

- Christo

Through Reveal

We are probably the only artists in the world who have a 2,000-page book on a work of art that doesn't exist. But in this way, these projects reveal their identity through this whole process. When I'm starting, I only have the slightest idea of how the work of art will exist.

- Christo

Always Include

Every job that you take, the term that you should always include is, 'How can I be involved in the strategic projects that are critical to the future of the company?' You ask that question. It's a great 'how' question.

- Christopher Voss

Movie Meant

I would sign on for projects that were meant to shoot in July, and then they would postponed and they would bleed into the following semester, and then I'd take a semester off, and then the movie would collapse.

- Claire Danes

Indie TV

I want to balance my projects. Ideally, I'd like to do at least one indie film, a mainstream movie, and a TV series in a year - the best of both worlds.

- Coco Martin

Give Been

I want to give back and show my gratitude to the indies. At the same time, cherish the mainstream projects I've been getting.

- Coco Martin

Journey Going

Most projects that I've done are really not about the project. They're about what's going on inside and around, that journey that we're all on, and what I can do to help that journey further itself and be of encouragement to somebody.

- Craig T. Nelson

Before Been

The greatest thing has been that projects that were pipe dreams before 'Whiplash' are now feeling more realistic.

- Damien Chazelle

Motivated Some

'Whiplash' scared me. I feel you should only do projects that scare you to some degree. I get motivated by those sorts of feelings.

- Damien Chazelle

Sucking

I have found, unfortunately, that if I take on too many projects at one time, there is a higher probability of those projects sucking.

- Damon Lindelof

Hire Our

That is what we know how to do better than anyone else: We know how to maximize value for our projects. If the government would like to hire my services to maximize value for their stake, they should approach me. No problem.

- Dan Gertler

Studio Basement

Due to my work as a musician, songwriter, recording artist and author, hundreds of people stream in and out of my basement studio to help me with my creative projects.

- Dan Hill

Doing Stories

I've got to be out doing a million things. That's how I find stories. That's how I get the relationships and get the projects that I get with the writers, the directors.

- Dana Brunetti

Dorm Soundtracks

The first two projects I did out of my dorm room were mock film soundtracks.

- Danger Mouse

Studio Discovered

They studio were flabbergasted when they discovered how interested everybody was in 'those old people.' And now many upcoming projects feature older people; it's become a trend.

- Daniel Petrie

Work Like

There are those special projects that don't ever feel like work but just a blessing to be a part of, and 'Revolution' is one of those projects.

- Daniella Alonso

Some Before

Some of these things I saw in foreign films - African films, Cuban films - long before I decided to really go on this course as an actor. I started to think about what values I saw in those films that I wanted to bring to my projects.

- Danny Glover

Certain Point

I've found that sitting around and obsessing about projects moving forward, when there's actually nothing I can do about it, at a certain point, is really counter-productive.

- Danny Strong

Help Small

Small projects need much more help than great.

- Dante Alighieri

Putting Provided

The process of putting the DVD and the CD together was great fun, because it provided a good excuse for the four of us to make time to get together again. I am especially pleased with the end result of these two projects.

- Dave Blood

Think Other

Projects you think are no-brainers stall, and other things see the light of day. You never count anything out.

- Dave Filoni

Been Other

But probably for the last ten years or so, I've been fitting in animation work into my other projects.

- Dave Rowntree

Mind Other

I usually have one project I'm focusing on but often have many other projects in the back of my mind for several years.

- David Allee

Thought Each One

I'm particular about the projects that I've chosen. Each one of them, I've taken a step up, like climbing a ladder. Before, it was baby-steps, up to 'Riddick.' Then I took this huge leap onto 'Guardians!' It was such a higher level, this huge project which originally I never thought I'd have a chance in hell of getting.

- David Bautista

Focus About

The Momofuku Culinary Lab started as a space where we could focus on creating and innovating. I didn't want us to worry about working on projects in a restaurant; there are just too many distractions in service and running a kitchen to be able to focus on creating your dishes.

- David Chang

Think Terms

I don't think in terms of projects.

- David Ferry

I Remember

I remember when I first came to Los Angeles being staggered by the range of roles open to me. These were leading parts in shiny new projects, and what always excited me was knowing there was a possibility that I could actually get these parts. I always had the impression that I had a chance.

- David Harewood

Brothers Six

Until I was six years old we lived in the projects, then my two brothers and three sisters and I moved to a three-bed that my mother's father built.

- David Johansen
