I Remember About

I remember, in my first show in New York, they asked, 'Where is the Indian-ness in your work?'... Now, the same people, after having watched the body of my work, say, 'There is too much Indian philosophy in your work.' They're looking for a superficial skin-level Indian-ness, which I'm not about.

- A. Balasubramaniam

Own Tastes

I am sure it is one's duty as a teacher to try to show boys that no opinions, no tastes, no emotions are worth much unless they are one's own. I suffered acutely as a boy from the lack of being shown this.

- A. C. Benson

Love Stories

Human beings love stories because they safely show us beginnings, middles and ends.

- A. S. Byatt

Work New

With a popular show, you know that there's expectations there, so that's a little nerve-wracking when you're new and you're just trying to find your legs on something, but it's exciting, too, because that's what we work so hard for.

- Aaron Ashmore

Love Leno

If we're talking fantasy, I would love to host a late night talk show... More Fallon than Leno. Those guys always seem like they're having way too much fun at their 'jobs.'

- Aaron Sanchez

Turn Some

When 'Men's Health' reached out and said, 'Will you be on the 'Today Show' and do a fitness challenge?' I said, 'OK. I'm not showing them anything they don't already know.' But I'm going to take what some would argue is a negative or not substantive and turn it into a substantive thing to hopefully do some good for people.

- Aaron Schock

Decisions Made

Decisions are made by those who show up.

- Aaron Sorkin

Happy Watching

But HBO is less interested in how many people are watching than in how much the people who are watching are liking the show. They didn't set up their business model to make writers happy. It's just a nice unintended consequence.

- Aaron Sorkin

Still Took

When I was starting out, William Goldman took me under his wing, and he's still the person I show pages to.

- Aaron Sorkin

Work Going

You can't predict a show, that is the damndest thing, you can't predict if a show is going to work or not until it's on the air.

- Aaron Spelling

Pretending Screen

The longer I spent time on 'The Daily Show,' standing in front of a green screen pretending to report from war zones and hot spots around the world - most often from somewhere in the Middle East - the more I began to realize that 'The Daily Show' was radicalizing me.

- Aasif Mandvi

Decade Mistrust

My tenure at 'The Daily Show' started during the decade after September 11, and fear of Muslims was at an all-time high. Politicians and the media seemed to dial the fright, mistrust, and animosity up to a fever pitch to gain votes and ratings.

- Aasif Mandvi

Been Different Places

I'm free to see things objectively because I don't consider myself American, and I don't consider myself British or Indian. I'm kind of an amalgam or mongrel of a lot of different places and experiences. In a lot of ways it's been a good thing for me. It's enabled me to do what I do on 'The Daily Show.'

- Aasif Mandvi

I See Been

I always focused on being an actor. I did stand-up briefly, but I also did a lot of dramatic work. But since I've been on 'The Daily Show,' people think I'm a comedian. That's not how I see myself.

- Aasif Mandvi

Hire Needed

They wanted to audition people for the Middle East correspondent on 'The Daily Show.' They wanted to hire somebody ethnic for that slot. Helms had left, Cordry had left, and they felt that they needed an ethnic face. So, I went in and auditioned, and I got the job.

- Aasif Mandvi

Been Real Characters

I've been watching 'The Cosby Show' and 'Roseanne' a lot right now, and those work so well because they're not, like, jokey comedies; they are coming from real characters. We want our show to be like that. A family show.

- Abbi Jacobson

Just Because Mean

Just because I don't show six-pack abs doesn't mean that I don't have them.

- Abhishek Bachchan

Game Bedside

You can't show up at the bedside and then turn on your skills. You have to keep your game sharp all the time.

- Abraham Verghese

Very Use

We're now able to show that the words of comfort trigger biological reactions which are the very things that you want, and you can use drugs to get there, or you can use words of comfort to get there, which would make your drugs so much more effective.

- Abraham Verghese

Interest Mario

'Molto Mario' was the show that sparked my entire interest in cooking.

- Action Bronson

Doing Express

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

- Adam Carolla

Success Business

I didn't have any success in show business until I was 30 to 31 years of age.

- Adam Carolla

Other Private

If the courts regarded tweets and other social media information as private, it would not prevent the law enforcement from getting information it really needs. But the government would have to get a search warrant, which requires it to show that it has probable cause connecting what is being searched to a crime.

- Adam Cohen

Some Log

When we get people to log in, they end up using Quora a lot more, and we can provide a lot better experience for them. We can show them a personalized news feed; we can send them digest emails and do all this ranking to find some stuff they want to read.

- Adam D'Angelo

Want Theater

I want to show that theater isn't just talking about feelings or people wearing tights.

- Adam Driver

Focus Easiest Thing

It fits my ADD, so that's good. Because I really can't focus on anything for too long. And 'Top Gear's really the easiest thing to do because I'm with my pals. It's like coming home with my friends. We're having so much fun making the show.

- Adam Ferrara

Needed Another

At 15 I auditioned for 42nd Street in Australia. Dein Perry was in that show. I actually got the job but I couldn't do it because I was only 15. Legally I needed to have another 15-year-old to cover consecutive nights.

- Adam Garcia

Them About

By admitting your inadequacies, you show that you're self-aware enough to know your areas for improvement - and secure enough to be open about them.

- Adam Grant

Quantum Seven

I once pitched this show that was just like 'Quantum Leap,' in terms of the set-up, and I got a pass because they said 'Quantum Leap' didn't work, even though it was on for six or seven seasons. You can't say 'Quantum Leap' didn't work!

- Adam Green

Work Save

God seeks to influence humanity. This is at the heart of the Christmas story. It is the story of light coming into the darkness, of a Savior to show us the way, of light overcoming the darkness, of God's work to save the world.

- Adam Hamilton

Love Dancers

I would love to do a live show with dancers and fashion and scenic elements - definitely bring my love of the theater to a concert-style performance.

- Adam Lambert

Civilization Boo

Seriously, 'Honey Boo Boo' is the decay of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn't mean it's good.

- Adam Levine

Moment Had

I guess HBO did a giant 'War in the Pacific' mini-series that cost, like, a fortune, and there was a little moment where they literally had no money. And even though the show had become kind of a cult hit, there was an issue of whether they could actually afford to do it.

- Adam McKay

Bad Though

For 'Breaking Bad,' people were with Walter White for 99% of that show, even though that guy is a monster.

- Adam McKay

Stupid Hammered

'The Real World' is the most predictable arc ever. They get on the show, they're all excited, we're gonna be best friends, then people start drinking and get hammered, and say stupid stuff, and that's pretty much it.

- Adam McKay

Go Biceps

Biceps for show, triceps for go.

- Adam Peaty

Channel Had

The Travel Channel had success with their 'Food Paradise' series, '10 Best Places to Pig Out' and those types of specials, so they knew there was a market for comfort food and wanted to develop a show around it.

- Adam Richman

Head Get

When I'm up there, and I know the show's coming to a close, in my head I'm saying to myself, Oh man, you gotta get off and be a normal person again. That's what I don't like so much.

- Adam Sandler

Friends Out

Most of the stuff I do on the show comes out of me just trying to make my friends laugh.

- Adam Sandler

Van Else

This is the point in the show where we say, 'Oh, what else do we have in the van that's flammable?'

- Adam Savage

Feel Getting

Like, on the 'Parks And Rec' set, I still feel like I'm a guest star. Being a fan of the show, it's really surreal to be on the set and see that it's not real, and getting to know the actors and they're not their characters.

- Adam Scott

I Think Very

I think when you're on a network show, it's crazy how different it is... just being on a network show that reaches that many people. It's not like I'm very famous, but seemingly overnight, I would get recognized more, and it was really weird.

- Adam Scott

Couple Out

I'm scared of audiences. One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous, I escaped out the fire exit. I've thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels, I projectile vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don't like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot.

- Adele

Love Biggest Dream

My biggest dream and my biggest accomplishment was to be on HBO and 'True Detective.' It was a show that I just fell in love with.

- Adria Arjona

Old Realised

It's definitely time to stop. We're getting too old. We both realised that the show wasn't as engaging as it used to be. We were starting to look a bit ridiculous.

- Adrian Edmondson

Want Environmentalism

I want to show people that environmentalism can be fun!

- Adrian Grenier

Love Amazing

My favorite designer is Christian Lacroix, not just because his clothes are amazing and I love them, but because he's so nice. When I did his fashion show, he was the first one to arrive there and he helped everyone.

- Adriana Lima

Top Had

I was in a fashion show and I had on a strapless top. When I got to the end the top was down.

- Adriana Lima

I Think Predominant

'Pretty Little Liars,' you know, it's a teen show that grew to be something bigger. I think you had girls from ages 7 to, like, 20 watching the show, and that was the predominant audience. Then it grew to be for girls, boys, men, women, people who are 7 to 35. I think that's crazy.

- Aeriel Miranda

Outside Poor

Outside show is a poor substitute for inner worth.

- Aesop

Wake Up Wake

Every morning when I wake up, I listen to 'The Brian Lehrer Show' on WNYC.

- Aidy Bryant

Religious Through

I was a religious 'SNL' watcher all through middle school. I was obsessed with Molly Shannon, Ana Gasteyer, Cheri Oteri - they were on right when I found the show. Then I started watching the older episodes, and it just totally blew my mind that my dream show already existed.

- Aidy Bryant

More Will

In the future, the best retail sites will know you much better and show you things that are much more relevant.

- Aileen Lee

Individual Allow

It's society that disables an individual by not investing in enough creativity to allow for someone to show us the quality that makes them rare and valuable and capable.

- Aimee Mullins

Cool Kid

My parents were vegetarians. I'd show up at school, this giant black kid, with none of the cool clothes and a tofu sandwich and celery sticks.

- Aisha Tyler

Fair Big

People challenge my nerd cred all the time. I just show them the photo of me winning my middle-school science fair, wearing my Casio calculator watch and eyeglasses so big they look like they can see the future.

- Aisha Tyler

Love Woman

When I was younger, it was harder for me to find a black eyeliner that would actually show up on my skin. Being a dark-skinned woman, when you find something that actually shows up on your face, you love it even more.

- Aja Naomi King

Go Gotta

Hey, you know what, I've gotta go on that 'Letterman' show. That show is so lame.

- Al Gore

Mind Give

I say what's on my mind and have a good time. I try to give people a show. It's all about giving people a good time once you get out under those lights.

- Al Jarreau

Flight Dave

I have this image in my head of me in the house I grew up in, and hearing this incredible music on the television show, going over to it, and there's Jon Hendricks, Dave Lambert, and Annie Ross. It knocked me out of my socks, and I'm still in flight.

- Al Jarreau

Week Saturday

I try to get in two runs during the week, after the 'Today' show, probably around 1 or 2 o'clock, Tuesday, Thursday. Then Saturday or Sunday, I do my longer runs and try to do it in the morning.

- Al Roker

Life Decent

I'm not sure if I've learned anything from show business. Life in general has taught me if you're kind to people, everything gets easier. Being a decent person really smoothes the way for you and everyone else.

- Alan Arkin

Through False

I am so spoiled. I cannot watch a show where it gets interrupted for ads. I have to TiVo it and skip through the ads, because the culture of advertising is so false and phony that I just... ugh, you know?

- Alan Ball

Drama Year

In my first year at drama school, I did this kids' show called 'Let's See.'

- Alan Cumming

Right Talk Show Host

You're absolutely right: Bob Grant is a racist, Bob Grant is a bigot, he's a despicable talk show host and I agree with that.

- Alan Dershowitz

Anthropology Minor

In my introductory course, Anthropology 160, the Forms of Folklore, I try to show the students what the major and minor genres of folklore are, and how they can be analyzed.

- Alan Dundes

Want Kid

Right when I started in show... Milton Berle was my first idol. When I was a kid, I went to see Milton at Lowe's State, and I never laughed so much, and I said, 'That's who I want to be; that's what I want to be.'

- Alan King

Grateful Words

I'm no good with words but I'll find ways from time to time to show you how grateful I am.

- Alan Ladd

Track

What I have to show, I show on the track.

- Alan Oliveira

Oh My God Kremlin

In Russia we had to have special visas in our passports, and when we had to show our passports at the Kremlin gates, we realized that, Oh my God, we're actually playing in THE Kremlin!

- Alan Parsons

Want About

I know, if I am playing well, I can be as good as anyone, and I want to show people who write you off and forget about you.

- Alan Smith

Fiction Some

It shouldn't be so difficult to determine what a planet is. When you're watching a science fiction show like 'Star Trek' and they show up at some object in space and turn on the viewfinder, the audience and the people in the show know immediately whether it's a planet or a star or a comet or an asteroid.

- Alan Stern

Breaks Raising

My two boys were the same ages as the kids in the show. In real life or in between the breaks I was raising two kids off camera who were not unlike the two kids who were being paid to be my kids.

- Alan Thicke

About Had

We got kind of into a rhythm at 'Parks' because there were so many characters that we had an A story, a B story, and a C story just about every episode. So by the middle of that show's run, we always had three stories, and it worked really well.

- Alan Yang

Endurance Very

I respect the hell out of everyone who does a network show. That is a marathon. It's so many episodes, and it can be a meat grinder. Anyone making a network show, and on top of that making a very good network show, that's an insane feat of Herculean endurance and fortitude.

- Alan Yang

Challenges Biggest

One of the biggest challenges of writing for middle-grade or even young-adult readers is that I don't want to have too much violence in it - which really limits what you can do. It's important that they're not just bloodbaths or glorifying violence. I always try to show that a person who dies leaves a hole. There's grief in my books.

- Alane Ferguson

Planned Minus

I'd still like to see 'Survivor' minus the planned show-biz parts. That would be the purest form of show business - I want to see someone so hungry that they eat somebody else's foot.

- Albert Brooks

Brothers Kid

When I was a little kid, my parents would show me Marx Brothers' films and westerns and stuff like that. That's where all my desire to be an actor comes from and probably most of my understanding of acting comes from for sure.

- Alden Ehrenreich

Love Superhero

These superhero movies are starting to give more love to not only black characters but also to more female characters, which is necessary because you have boys and girls of all colors who are looking at these superheroes saying, 'I want to be that. I want to look like that. Show me somebody that I can automatically connect with.'

- Aldis Hodge

Creative People Other

I started out as an actor, where you seek to understand yourself using the words of great writers and collaborating with other creative people. Then I slid into show business, where you seek only an audience's approval whether you deserve it or not.

- Alec Baldwin

Television Precise

On a television show, precise acting isn't the order of the day.

- Alec Baldwin

Work Business

Am I a homophobe? Look, I work in show business. I am awash in gay people, as colleagues and as friends.

- Alec Baldwin

Interesting Code

You can't just watch people type all day, and you can't really show screenshots of code and make it interesting in any way.

- Alec Berg

Against Consequence

We try to show that violence has a consequence - when you create violence, it turns against you.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Classical Our

Our first show, 'A Little Nightmare Music,' encompasses a lot of zany humor with beautiful classical music.

- Aleksey Igudesman

Perfect I Think

And my daughter really likes Justin Bieber, so I think she'll have fun watching him. But I think Rihanna is the perfect match for the Victoria's Secret show because she's really beautiful, she's really sexy, and she's really talented.

- Alessandra Ambrosio

Dress Means

Luxury means that you show the way you dress with eccentricity.

- Alessandro Michele

Natural Curly

I keep my hair curly and natural because I really just wanna show who I am.

- Alessia Cara

Love Other

I love experimenting with clothes for photo shoots, but when I'm onstage, I want to show people that there are other options. You can just be yourself and still make good music.

- Alessia Cara

Up Always

It's always nice when the eccentrics show up.

- Alex Cox

Your Out

When we were working on 'Taxi to the Dark Side,' we would purposefully not show it to certain people in the cutting room, because we would include a lot of horrible material and would need a fresh pespective. They would look at us and say, 'Are you out of your minds? You can't include that!'

- Alex Gibney

About Works

I'm not sure why, but I seem to be drawn to stories about abuses of power. But I'm also drawn, not so much to victims' stories, as stories that tend to show how power works. Because if you don't understand the criminals, you can't figure out how to stop the crimes.

- Alex Gibney

Game Down

You pull anyone from an alien planet down to Earth, and you want to show them great work, show them Tywin Lannister on 'Game of Thrones.' I mean, it's just as good as it gets.

- Alex Graves

Game Before

'Game of Thrones' is the broadest of narratives. I don't know if anyone in the U.S. has done a story on such a large scale before, both in terms of what George R.R. Martin wrote and what's on the show.

- Alex Graves

Goal May

My goal is to show girls that I'm fighting so they don't have to, so they don't have to fight the same battles, so they don't have to fight for wage equality or whatever it may be.

- Alex Morgan

Doing Young

In Chicago, anything that you're doing, the community gives it value. Every little improv show, every scrappy reading, and every lead on a Goodman mainstage. It's all a promising opportunity for a young actor.

- Alex Weisman

Teach Another

Teach me to feel another's woe, to hide the fault I see, that mercy I to others show, that mercy show to me.

- Alexander Pope

Okay Industry

The industry's changed so much that you can't just design something, put on a great show, and say, 'Okay, my job is done.'

- Alexander Wang

Week Buyers

I don't think fashion week will go back to what it used to be because people are realising that the industry is completely changing. It's not just in Bryant Park any more, people are figuring out who their audience is, where they want to show, they aren't really playing by the rules. It's not so much about these editors, these buyers.

- Alexander Wang

Obsessed

I'm obsessed with this show called 'Workaholics.'

- Alexandra Daddario
