Role

Total Quotes : 1989
Artist I Think

I think artists are really the root of a tree. They can search for truth or reality in their own way, and the gallery can support them - the outside part of the tree, where it is more about reaching the outside world, connecting with the outside world. That is the role of the gallery, no? Why does the artist have to do that?

Innocence Reasonable

I don't think the law exists to arrive at the truth. If it did, we wouldn't have exclusionary rules, we wouldn't have presumptions of innocence, we wouldn't have proof beyond reasonable doubt. There's an enormous difference between the role of truth in law and the role of truth in science. In law, truth is one among many goals.

- Alan Dershowitz

Young Psychological

The Israeli military plays more than a critical role in defending the citizens of the Jewish state. It also plays an important social, scientific and psychological role in preparing its young citizens for the challenging task of being Israelis in a difficult world.

- Alan Dershowitz

Been Constant

I tell my students, if you ever become comfortable with your role as criminal defense lawyer, it's time to quit. It should be a constant source of discomfort, because you're dealing with incredible moral ambiguity, and you've been cast into a role which is not enviable.

- Alan Dershowitz

Love Been

I had a sympathetic role in 'thirtysomething,' and in two weeks I'm going to do the role again. But in the movies, I just love the heavies. It's much more fun. Villains are a ball. People have been laughing at me for 50 years, so I love to sit in the back of the theater and listen to them hate me.

- Alan King

Play Motives

Any actor who judges his character is a fool - for every role you play you've got to absorb that character's motives and justifications.

- Alan Rickman

Pirate About

I had a role in 'DodgeBall,' where I played a pirate who played dodge ball. I'd say 80 to 90 percent of my lines were 'Garrr' or 'Arghh.' And it was all about what the quality of your 'Grr-arr' was.

- Alan Tudyk

Play About

I guess I'm attracted to things that are fun. I guess what is fun about this role in 'Suburgatory' is that there's a lot of room to play around.

- Alan Tudyk

Against South

Since the announcement that Boeing was going to open a plant in Charleston, South Carolina, Boeing has actually created 2,000 new jobs in Washington state. So it's hard to say you are retaliating against the union when you create 2,000 members to their role.

- Alan Wilson

Constitution Against

I'm not against the government. I'm against this ever-expanding government that doesn't know its limits. And that's how I see the role of the attorney general, as someone in an office that can protect you and defend the Constitution and defend state sovereignty and our individual liberty.

- Alan Wilson

- Alanis Morissette

Love Rewarding

My role in 'Legally Blonde' was really rewarding, because I had so much fun working on the movie. I've had really rewarding experiences on tiny low budget films that you'll never see but where I had a cool time creating characters as well. I love almost all of the characters I've played.

Character Get

When I get a role, I try to delve as deeply as possible into the character.

- Alberto Gonzales

Buy Roles

I've had that experience many, many, times - when you don't get roles. I'd developed a good muscle for shaking it off. I buy myself a present whenever I don't get a role that I really wanted. You get bummed out, and then you go, 'Oh! Now I get to go buy a present for myself.' That kind of helps.

- Alden Ehrenreich

Audience Younger

I hear all the time from our audience about how it's nice to see a positive African-American role model for the younger kids out there that are watching.

- Aldis Hodge

Other Some

There's three things: there's masculinity, there's intelligence, there's sensitivity. You've got to bring those three things to a leading man's role: masculinity, sensitivity, intelligence. In some people, there's a little too much in the mix of one or the other.

- Alec Baldwin

Sometimes About

It's hard to consider myself one when a lot of my fans and people who are calling me a role model are people my age and sometimes older than me. I feel like they're at the same walk of life that I'm in right now, and they can probably teach me things about life, too.

- Alessia Cara

Play Largest

Although not well known outside Wall Street, Freddie Mac and its corporate cousin, Fannie Mae, are two of the world's largest financial institutions and play a crucial role in the housing market.

- Alex Berenson

Moscow KGB

Over the past years, I have lectured many times on the Cuban missile crisis, most provocatively to 200 senior officers of the former Soviet army in Moscow in 1991, among them KGB generals. There, my knowledge of Penkovsky's role was thoroughly confirmed, and so was the Soviet military men's residual sense of humiliation at Khrushchev's 'blink'.

- Alistair Horne

Some Billy

I had some great role models along the way. My on-field heroes were the great Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, and Willie Mays. I wanted to be like them on the field, and I am so damn proud to join them in the Hall of Fame.

- Allan Ray

New Breathing

My music is homegrown from the garden of New Orleans. Music is everything to me short of breathing. Music also has a role to lift you up - not to be escapist but to take you out of misery.

- Allen Toussaint

Access Historic

For the Archivist, this role is a result of his obligation to preserve and assure timely and maximum access to our governmental records in the evolving historic saga of the American people.

- Allen Weinstein

Before Same Thing

- Allison Schroeder

Door Here

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

Very Flamboyant

The character in 'Arya' was so close to my real life persona. The director saw me once and felt I was the right guy for the role because my body language was so flamboyant. In real life, too, I am very peppy and full of life.

- Allu Arjun

Love Been

I've always been a bit of an outsider... I just pop up, kind of. I have a life. I have children - I have three children - and I love the craft of acting; I'm dedicated to that... that's always meant more to me than just hanging out... I've always been kind of a weirdo in that respect, but if the role is good, I'm going to do it.

- Ally Walker

Role Model Model

Being a role model is a privilege.

- Allyson Felix

Play Important Role

I represent the Port of Philadelphia, and I know firsthand the important role that ports play in the national and global economy. I have also seen how simple accidents can have devastating impacts on the port system.

- Allyson Schwartz

Always Lives

In our family, the men have always stood at the head, true patriarchs that take the lead, teach, and live their lives as examples... Women have a significant role as helpers to our husbands and co-counsels in the parental equation.

- Alveda King

Strong Been

The role of matriarch and patriarch are distinct, and in the King family, we have been blessed with strong examples of both.

- Alveda King

Love Like

I love HBO and Showtime, especially Showtime. I'm a huge 'Dexter' fan, and I love 'Weeds.' That would be cool to do a recurring role on a show like that.

- Aly Michalka

Plays Lives

Understand that nutrition plays a huge role in athletes' lives, and one of the most nutritious ways to eat is to cook your own food.

- Alex Guarnaschelli

Good Another

I don't want to say names, but there are certain companies I won't work with because of previous people they've worked with. I don't want to be put in the same category as another athlete that I don't necessarily think is a good role model.

- Alex Morgan

Been Given

With me and Portland, it wasn't moving anywhere. I wasn't given a bigger role as I played more and more with the club. I felt I could have been utilized in a bigger way.

- Alex Morgan

Units Major Role

The Halifax area has long played a major role in Canada's military operations, being the port of departure for convoys, naval task forces and army units over the past 100 years or so.

- Alex Morrison

Love Dad

My dad's one of my biggest heroes. I also think Paul Newman's an inspiration. I know a lot of people say that, but I love that he's a great role model and a humanitarian. I admire people who don't necessarily want to change the world, but try to make it a better environment.

- Alex Pettyfer

Loved Would

I would have loved to have a role in the HBO series 'Deadwood.' It was Shakespeare in the Old West.

- Alex Trebek

I Think Very

Someone asked me what the key to being a good frontman was, and I think having a sense of humor about it is pretty near the top of that list. It's a very strange place to be in, and I don't take that role too seriously.

- Alex Turner

Role Model About

I'm not preaching about things you should do, I'm not political or anything. I'm probably not the best role model.

- Alexa Chung

Art Deep

I never knew what my role in art was, because I was such a deep appreciator and such a passionate appreciator. But every time I would try to sit down and be an illustrator or painter, it was just not my best use.

- Alexa Hirschfeld

Play Going

Don't get me wrong, I'm going to play the young role as long as I can because once that ship has sailed, there's no getting back on it.

- Alexa Vega

Think Television

I feel that a lot of roles in television can really typecast someone as one type of actor or playing one type of role, but I really don't think that my role in 'Weeds' did at all.

- Alexander Gould

Lucky Hollywood

Everyone in Hollywood wanted a role in this movie. Everyone wanted to have a part in it. I feel so lucky that I got one, but what I find so cool about 'Hunger Games' is that the real star is the story itself.

- Alexander Ludwig

Doing By The Time

By the time I was 10, I was doing plays for Phoenix theater. My first lead role was as the Stinky Cheese Man. I got a taste of the limelight, and I just couldn't stop. It was a way for me to be the artistic, geeky kid that I was, and not get beat up.

- Alexandra Shipp

Settle Own

The expectation was I would get married and become a mother and settle down. We didn't have any role models. We saw teachers and doctors and nurses, but I'm not a teacher, and there was no possibility of being a doctor or a nurse. I had to work and find my own way.

- Alexis Wright

Explore Dreaming

My role as a novelist is to explore ideas and imagination, and hopefully that will inspire people from my world to continue dreaming and to believe in dreams.

- Alexis Wright

Think Some

I said I would like to do some theatre, so people started searching for some jobs for me, and I didn't think it would be the lead role in 'Equus.'

- Alfie Allen

Country United States

United States is a great Country and has its effective role on the international arena, so we have to boost our relations with it, in order to achieve peace and stability in our region and the world.

- Ali Abdullah Saleh

Practice Country

The opposition may have the right to doubt every thing, but for myself, I call on opposition to practice its role within limits of objectively, responsibility and country interests.

- Ali Abdullah Saleh

Doing Noticed

I was doing theatre when somebody noticed me and referred me to Raju Hirani. And Raju saw me on camera, and there, I was a heavy guy with long hair. But I got selected for the role of Joy in '3 Idiots.'

- Ali Fazal

Homeland Had

I was offered a role in the series 'Homeland,' which I couldn't do because the dates clashed with my film with the Bhatts - 'Khamoshiyan.' But I wish I had done it. Look at how much notice the series got Nimrat Kaur.

- Ali Fazal

Proud Hollywood

Now, there doesn't have to necessarily be a white man in the lead role. That's the way forward. That's diversity. It's cool if an Indian is playing the lead role in a Hollywood project, and we should be proud of this.

- Ali Fazal

Changing Certain Way

For me, changing my physical appearance for a character is never a problem. If I have to look a certain way for a role, I just do it.

- Alia Bhatt

Tone Some

A role needs a certain tone, so your own tone also changes. It's not like I lock myself up in a room to get into the zone. It is based on what I am feeling, because the minute you try too much, weird things happen. Of course, for an intense role you need some silence, and you need to do a lot of thinking.

- Alia Bhatt

Student Year

After 'Student Of The Year,' when I played that baby-doll, diva character, I knew I would be stereotyped, and I wanted to break that image of me. I loved that role, but I don't want to be attached to one particular genre, so 'Highway' was a blessing in disguise.

- Alia Bhatt

I Think Works

I think it's often assumed that the role of poetry is to comfort, but for me, poetry is the great unsettler. It questions the established order of the mind. It is radical, by which I don't mean that it is either leftwing or rightwing, but that it works at the roots of thinking.

- Alice Oswald
