Color Dress

Almost every collection I do has 200 different references. I don't have two of the same coat, two of the same dress. I have it in one color, in one fabric. I've tried to adapt the culture of couture, and the know-how and the heritage, but I try to update it.

- Alber Elbaz

Feel Studio

I feel like you listen your whole life, so when you are in the studio, your references are all the songs and music that you know. It just depends on where the songs are going and what attracts you at the moment.

- Albert Hammond, Jr.

Through Save

I scroll through Instagram and Twitter, and whenever I see something that speaks to me, I take a screenshot to save it for red carpet inspiration. Sometimes, if I see an outfit I like on the street, I'll take a picture, too. References are so important.

- Ally Brooke

Star Star Wars

Whenever I watch a show and twentysomethings have a lot of 'Star Wars' references, I know it's written by a 40-year-old dude.

- Anders Holm

Love Very

My character in 'Fanaah' has a cool and crazy look at the same time. I'm very particular about my accessories and clothes and love discussing and working on the look with the team. We all work on it together and gather loads of references.

- Anita Hassanandani Reddy

Always Stories

I have always loved really dense, complicated stories with lots of layers, tons of obscure literary references, and a plethora of inside jokes.

- Alethea Kontis

Means Which

At the onset, I decided to name my brand LVL XIII - which means Level 13. The number 13 identified within the name and concept of the brand references throughout history that every creation begins at the level of thought and idea.

- Antonio Brown

Other About

I couldn't imagine what it's like to be a journalist talking about music. You're left with empty descriptions; you probably have to make up a sort of weird cocktail of band influences and references to other music to get your point across.

- Ariel Pink

Explain Couple

When they sold me on 'Supergirl', I went and sat down with Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti, and they described the character to me. Greg Berlanti used a couple of music theater references to kind of explain who the character was. They threw up Chris Pratt in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as a reference point.

- Chris Wood

Wait Some

The thing I loved about the cartoons I grew up with is, to this day, I'm still just starting to get certain references from Bugs Bunny cartoons. I'll see some film noir movie and go, 'Wait, that's what Bugs Bunny was quoting!' I like the idea we made the unfolding fortune cookie for ten years from now.

- Christopher McCulloch

Game Literary

But it's not just a game of finding literary references.

- Dan Simmons

Movie However

There are no movie references that I can think of in 'Robopocalypse.' However, there are tons of personal references. For example, the IP address that Lurker tracks actually goes back to the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I studied robotics.

- Daniel H. Wilson

Very Figure

Logic obviously is important. You need to be able to figure things out, to go to the end of a particular problem. But intuition is very important because it references things that logic alone cannot.

- Daniel Tammet

Good I Think

I think it's kind of difficult to write a good Christmas song because you have a narrow framework of references that you have to work within, and at the same time you want to do something that's personally original and hopefully somewhat unique.

- John Oates

Nothing Deal

It only serves to show what sort of person a man must be who can't even get testimonials. No, no; if a man brings references, it proves nothing; but if he can't, it proves a great deal.

- Joseph Pulitzer

Communicate

I try to communicate in a way that allows people in on what's going on. What's better than references to popular culture?

- Bart Chilton

Oasis Balkans

Remember all those references to Macedonia as the oasis of peace in the Balkans. You only really appreciate it when you have lost it.

- Boris Trajkovski

Alive Like

I never get tired of 'It Was A Good Day' references or jokes or anything like that. It's just, you know, keeping my biggest hit alive. Nothing wrong with that.

- Ice Cube

Love Other

I saw the first 'House Party' - not the other 10. I love pop culture references. If you saw 'Moneyball', watch it again, looking for all the Clash posters.

- Brian Shactman

Commercials Out

Fairy tales are with us day in and day out, not just in commercials, but references in the theater, movies, museums, schools, etc.

- Jack Zipes

American Set

I've never set out consciously to write American music. I don't know what that would be unless the obvious Appalachian folk references.

- Carlisle Floyd

Food Loaded

My first novel is loaded with food references largely because my cupboards were bare, and I was writing hungry.

- Jan Karon

Art Actual

I spend much more time looking at art history and at different references to art than I do at actual objects.

- Jeff Koons

Tailored Nod

To the casual observer, the Dropbox demo video looked like a normal product demonstration, but we put in about a dozen Easter eggs that were tailored for the Digg audience. References to Tay Zonday and 'Chocolate Rain' and allusions to 'Office Space' and 'XKCD.' It was a tongue-in-cheek nod to that crowd, and it kicked off a chain reaction.

- Drew Houston

Curly Mostly

As a young girl, I definitely struggled with knowing what to do with my hair. I was just in a neighborhood that had mostly white people, and the hair norm was long and sleek and straight. My hair naturally was curly, and I didn't have that many references.

- Jillian Hervey

No Sense

I can see now that a concept or even a feeling makes no sense unless out of our substance we spin around it a web of references, of relationships, of values.

- Ella Maillart

Christmas Like

There are a lot of Grinches out there that would like nothing better than to take any references to religion out of the holiday season.

- Ernest Istook

Explain Read

We had literary references, so we knew what we were talking about. We could quote things, talk about books we'd read; you can say something, you don't have to explain it.

- Kevin Ayers

Idea I Think

The New Testament Scriptures are full of references to the malice of the devil, but we generally overlook them. I think this is because our idea of salvation is that Christ died on the cross to pay His Father the debt for our sins.

- Frederica Mathewes-Green

Years Oh My God

All my references are 50 years old-when somebody shot J.R., you know? Oh my god, I'm 100!

- Lauren Graham

Country Fact

When I was reading books for 'Seesaw Girl,' I came across several references to the fact that in the 11th and 12th centuries, Korean pottery was considered the finest in the world. I liked that - the idea of a little tiny country being the best at something.

- Linda Sue Park

Mood Through

Photography obviously lends itself so well towards fashion. It's capturing that moment and that inspiration, and as a designer you are constantly walking through the world assimilating those visual references you have and so being able to solidify that into a photograph and keep it on your mood board is essential to creating a collection.

- Georgina Chapman

Doing Been

I don't know if I change my act from century to century. Sometimes I'm onstage doing imitations and references to people who have been dead for 50 years.

- Gilbert Gottfried

Childhood About

My first record was about childhood. There were a lot of nursery rhyme and fairytale references; it was all about being naive.

- Mika

Work Distance

It's difficult for me to work with women, because I find that direct references are made back to me too fast. Working with men, it gives it a little distance.

- Sam Taylor-Johnson

Death Here

I certainly wanted to write a book that was honest about New Orleans without explaining it to death, so much so that the first draft contained references absolutely incomprehensible to anyone who hasn't lived here for several years.

- Poppy Z. Brite

Very Slightly

I was greatly influenced by 'The Goons' and 'Monty Python' reconstituting what comedy was - it could come from a funny word, not just a set up and a pay-off. I liked the zaniness; they were satirical, slightly saucy and very literary in their references.

- Sanjeev Bhaskar

Making Means

Making comic adaptations means making a lot of choices - you need to adjust the pacing, the dialogue, and in this case, a lot of the cultural references.

- Raina Telgemeier

Justified

A robber who justified his theft by saying that he really helped his victims, by his spending giving a boost to retail trade, would find few converts; but when this theory is clothed in Keynesian equations and impressive references to the 'multiplier effect,' it unfortunately carries more conviction.

- Murray Rothbard

Like Films

Films like 'Velvet Goldmine' are an accumulation of research and references. I create an almost random resource of connections and am constantly distilling that into narrative specifics.

- Todd Haynes

Why Constantly

People constantly make pop-culture references. That's why it's called popular culture, because people are aware of it and reference it constantly.

- Seth Rogen

Art Extension

The way I make art - the way a lot of people make art - is as an extension of language and communication, where references are incredibly important.

- Shepard Fairey

Terror Read

When I read 'Planet Terror,' it was like nothing I had ever read before remotely, and yet it has so many references.

- Marley Shelton

New Angeles

There is a pool of references in New York and Los Angeles that are almost exclusively drawn from the media, from the world of television and advertising.

- Marshall Brickman

Book Language

The Victorian language of flowers began with the publication of 'Le Language des Fleurs,' written by Charlotte de Latour and printed in Paris in 1819. To create the book - which was a list of flowers and their meanings - de Latour gathered references to flower symbolism throughout poetry, ancient mythology, and even medicine.

- Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Use Spencer

White people use their literature to maintain culture. That's why you find references to Milton and Spencer and Shakespeare and Dostoyevsky in contemporary novels.

- Ntozake Shange

Been Wide Range

I get good references from a wide range of music. Something who's been a good influence in the last few years is Qawwali music. If you listen to a Qawwali singer like Aziz Mian - he's like James Brown. Qawwali is like Pakistani gospel-jazz. It's emotional, but it's also improvised, and it's all about that sacred-and-profane tightrope.

- Riz Ahmed

Good Enjoy

Horror movies travel pretty well anyway. They're like action movies: People overseas can watch them and enjoy them, and they're not so culturally specific in terms of their references, and they can follow a good scary story.

- Robert Englund

Country Role

Liberals want to amend our country's history to eradicate the role of Christianity in America and chisel references to God or faith from our historical buildings.

- Steve King

Business Comedy

It's a pragmatist's business, comedy. Start off with good intentions and references to the Pompidou Centre and you end up with boiled sweets and a pantomime cow.

- Mel Smith

Small I Think

I think the only boundaries are individual and personal. A writer should be free to write about anything he or she wants to, including the twin towers. I have made small references to 9/11 in my past two books.

- Michael Connelly

Play Which

Above all, in comedy, and again and again since classical times, passages can be found in which the level of representation is interrupted by references to the spectators or to the fictive nature of the play.

- Paul Watzlawick

Wanting Been

We've been in business together ever since we were children, so back in the day, there were so many references to 'your dad.' Rather than wanting to sound totally hickified and go, 'Well, my daddy said,' we would refer to him as 'Phil.'

- Willie Robertson

Some How Far

People are put off by the perception of science fiction, and it doesn't help if you've got references to quantum this and quantum that on the first page, and people think, 'This isn't for me,' and chuck it. I'm probably a pretty bad offender, given how far in the future some of my stuff is.

- Peter F. Hamilton

Think I Think

I think that children's books should be censored not for references to sex but for references to diseases. I mean, who didn't think after reading 'Madeline' that they were going to get appendicitis?

- Roz Chast

Some Allow

I strive to use references that may still make some kind of sense once our age has passed into history. That robs my writing of a certain connectedness to my time, but potentially might allow it to make sense to people who are not in this time.

- Michel Faber
