Total Quotes : 1918
Like Pretty

I get all dressed up in fuchsia, looking like a clown, and show pretty pictures to people.

- Alexandra Stoddard

Tears Cure

Every therapeutic cure, and still more, any awkward attempt to show the patient the truth, tears him from the cradle of his freedom from responsibility and must therefore reckon with the most vehement resistance.

- Alfred Adler

Gardening Tell

Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are.

- Alfred Austin

Wake Up Wear

If you want to be watched 24 hours a day in everything you do, you can't turn that around. You can't wake up three years later and say, 'Stop bothering me, I'm a serious actor,' if all you've done is wear certain clothes and show up half-loaded at clubs.

- Ali MacGraw

Move Going

We're not going to dumb down for them. They have to move up. They're the network and we're the show.

- Alia Shawkat

Tell Seinfeld

We don't have a laugh track, which helped Seinfeld a lot, and did kind of tell people when to laugh. It just made it a lot easier. Our show doesn't have that, so it's hard for Middle America to catch on.

- Alia Shawkat

Jazz Around

When I was in New York, I put together a show; I put together this really great band and performed at this place called Littlefield in Brooklyn. It was really fun. I did, like, 10 standards, and then I just hopped around different bars like Mona's and different jazz clubs in New York just singing because I know all the standards so well.

- Alia Shawkat

Play Agent

I went on an audition once for a show, and the feedback was to play an angry teen. My agent convinced me to try out. I was really bitter for a while, because it sucks when you don't get good scripts after working on good quality.

- Alia Shawkat

Could Outpouring

When I left the show, the fans were so amazing in terms of the outpouring of support and continued support all that time whatever ways they could be in touch with me.

- Alice Barrett

Family Business

But this is called show business, not show family.

- Alice Barrett

Mind Big

It's a big flash of all these things and whatever you take out of that statement's one statement, one mind, one statement, one act, one show, and all the songs are one.

- Alice Cooper

Will Having

If you're not having fun with your job, it will show.

- Alice Dellal

Your About

You wanna do a lot of backstory for your character - as an actor, you wanna research that. But on the show, it's fun to remain in that naive place as you go along, and be able to continue to discover things about your character as the writers come up with them.

- Alison Brie

Secretive Them

You know, 'Mad Men' is notoriously secretive with its plotlines, even with exposing them to actors on the show.

- Alison Brie

Harm Something Else

I had a bunch of paintings around at my house, and someone said to me, 'Why don't you just put them on Instagram? Why don't you show people these?' And I didn't want to - it was just something else I would have to do. But eventually, I was like, 'What's the harm?' And the response was so insane!

- Alison Mosshart

Strength Singer

My strength as a singer is my versatility. I find it really frustrating when I'm only expected to show off. The music industry is awash with female acrobats. What happens to the song, and treating it for its sake and not as an ego example?

- Alison Moyet

Serve British

In 1939, Fitzroy Maclean, a gangly Highland aristocrat in his early 30s, was serving as a British diplomat in the U.S.S.R. Disgusted by the Soviet show trials, he quit the Foreign Service and would go on to serve with Tito's partisans fighting the Germans in Yugoslavia.

- Alistair Horne

I Think About

I think a lot of times people look at me and say, 'Well, we can't possibly hand a show over to her to run.' It seemed like executives would be worried about me controlling a room and having power, and I'd say, 'Oh, I can control a room. I can give an order like nobody's business.'

- Allison Schroeder

Need Slaves

In a lot of movies, African-Americans are either maids or slaves, but that's not all they were. We need to show that. And we can't keep erasing history.

- Allison Schroeder

Down Benefits

I know the benefits of having a really great improv show are amazing because it was this one rare and fleeting thing that was incredible, but the risk just didn't appeal to me. I liked the control of sitting down and writing things.

- Allison Tolman

Perfect Been

I auditioned for 'Girls' the fall after I graduated from Yale. The show has been amazing - as close to perfect as it gets!

- Allison Williams

Harmony Been

We get asked all the time if we're getting a fifth member, and we wanted to show the world in an artistic way that, 'Hey the four of us are Fifth Harmony,' and we're stronger and better than we've ever been.

- Ally Brooke

Entertaining Very

I kept thinking, 'Somebody has to make a food show that is actually educational and entertaining at the same time... a show that got down to the 'why things happen.' Plus, I hated my job - I didn't think it was very worthwhile.

- Alton Brown

Leader Himself

Herman Cain continues to show himself to be a leader.

- Alveda King

Work Color

I am trying to show the world that we are all human beings and that color is not important. What is important is the quality of our work.

- Alvin Ailey

Important Improving

Every training camp is important so you can show you're improving and staying consistent.

- Aly Raisman

Doing TV

It's funny because TV wasn't something that I wanted to do. I wanted to do movies. I'd said a lot of no's to a lot of shows previously because I couldn't fathom being on a show for such a long time and only doing one thing.

- Alycia Debnam-Carey

Role Drop

Anyone who wants to offer me as mushy, earthy, crunchy a role as they can, I will probably take it. In real life, I cry at a drop of a hat, and I'm a mom, and I'm pretty mushy! We all have so many colors as actors that we want to show.

- Alysia Reiner

Why Some

From 12-year-old girls to 70-year-old matriarchs, I know hundreds of women who have some sort of body image issue. This is sad and seriously worrying, but it's true, and it's why I feel some kind of social responsibility to do what I can to show a variety of body types in fashion magazines.

- Amanda de Cadenet

About Components

I don't know much about writing a show or being a show-runner on a show, but I can only imagine that when you first cast a show and you first do a pilot, there are so many components that you're throwing into the mix and you're not sure how they're going to develop.

- Alison Brie

About Needed

I was about 15 years old, and I needed a job, and somebody I know - I don't even know who it was - said that there was a television show that needed a presenter and that I should go and audition for it, so I did. That was a show called 'The Word,' and I got that job.

- Amanda de Cadenet

Bed Talk

My talk show takes place in bed, in Italy.

- Amanda Lear

Some Theatrical

The stage show is, in some sense, highly theatrical. It's definitely not just a band in jeans playing rock and roll.

- Amanda Palmer

Style City

If you've got style, you'll show it, no matter the city.

- Amar'e Stoudemire

Overcome Constantly

I am constantly struggling to show people that there is more to me than my appearance. You do have to try and overcome those hurdles. Female actresses need to be given the chance to be more than how they look.

- Amber Heard

Doing Questioning

Our show is less about a girl who is doing miracles and more about the domino effect of this girl's life, and how everyone else is affected. Our show seems to be a questioning show as opposed to an action sort of fairy tale.

- Amber Tamblyn

I See Very

But I didn't even see God in the show as being very spiritual, I see him or her, it, as being something that is just relevant and very important in her life.

- Amber Tamblyn

Say Understand

They say 15 million people are watching the show, but what does that mean, you know? It's not until I'm accosted on the street that I understand!

- America Ferrera

Think Like

People say, 'You look like the girl who used to be on that show 'Angel' - they don't actually think I'm her.

- Amy Acker

Overnight Up

People don't just show up in the C-suite overnight.

- Amy Hood

Seven Dad

My dad did a radio show. I was on it when I was seven. So now you know that the showbiz bug bit me really early.

- Amy Jackson

About Works

Both conservatives and liberals watch 'Parks and Recreation,' and they each think the show is for them, which is really cool. 'SNL' was totally different. It was exciting because everyone was paying attention. Political humor works when people know what you're talking about.

- Amy Poehler

Best Voices

When you write for a show that's not yours, your job is to hear the voices of the characters and write as best you can for those voices.

- Amy Sherman-Palladino

Movie Diane

It was actually the movie 'Rushmore' that made me first realize that I could try writing, but 'Cheers' is the best show ever. The writers on that show created a relationship that writers today still fail to rip off successfully: the Sam and Diane.

- Anders Holm

Cocky Fact

The fact is that everything I've done, no one else could do. I don't want to be cocky or arrogant or think I'm the best, but what I've tried to do all those years was to show I was different from the others. And that's not my opinion, but everyone's.

- Anderson Silva

Strength Strong

As a single mother of four, my mother taught me that you always want to show up strong for the moments that really matter with family, friends, and community. I now recognize how her strength helped shape the person I am today and the mother that I have become.

- Andie MacDowell

I Think Torn

I think it's real important to show style now. The majority of style right now is to act like you don't have style at all, so most companies are getting rich off clothes that look torn, clothes that look worn.

- Andre Benjamin

Career Maybe

More time than not, athletes, specifically fighters, have a 15 or 20-year career, and unfortunately, we end up right where we started when it's over. All we have is maybe a round of applause when we walk in a room - Hey, there's the champ! That's great; I want that, but I've got to have something tangible to show for it, too.

- Andre Ward

Things Fights

I have showed things in sparring and camp that I don't show in fights.

- Andre Ward

City Sights

A day off after a show with no agenda in a foreign city is about the most fertile creative situation I can imagine. Just walking with nothing to do, killing time and hearing the sights and sounds of an unfamiliar place.

- Andrew Bird

Woman Oprah

If ever there were a candidate destined to shine on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show,' Sarah Palin would be that woman.

- Andrew Breitbart

Men And Women Been

We've never slammed people over the head or made 'The Flash' an after-school special. With us, it's always been presenting the world in which we live. The world in which we live, men and women work together; different races work together, and you have gay friends, and people have relationships. We just try to show that.

- Andrew Kreisberg

Been Held

Not reforming the NHS would have been a much easier decision for me as secretary of state to have taken. We could have just protected the NHS from cuts, put in an extra £12.5bn and left it there. But sooner or later the cracks would have started to show. New treatments would have been held back.

- Andrew Lansley

Run Own

I'm just kind of taking a break now and enjoying the freedom of making my own choices. When you're on a television show for six years, they run your schedule.

- Andrew Shue

New Began

At 18 I began painting steadily fulltime and at age 20 had my first New York show at the Macbeth Gallery.

- Andrew Wyeth

Humbled Pleased

I'm real pleased and humbled by the support that the fans show.

- Andy Biersack

Confident Feel

It's really important for us as a band, that when someone is giving us grief on stage, to show our fans how important it is that they stand up for themselves and that they feel confident in themselves.

- Andy Biersack

Blog About

I started working at Bravo in 2005, when I was offered a job by Lauren Zalaznick, the network's chairman. She encouraged me to start a blog. I wrote behind-the-scenes gossip about 'Battle of the Network Reality Stars,' the first show I took on as head of current programming.

- Andy Cohen

Love Away

I will be the 43-year-old guy in the jumpsuit. In my estimation and my image of myself is that I am 23 and can get away with it. If I didn't have the show, I would be in one right now. It would be denim, but I love a terry.

- Andy Cohen

Thought Everybody

I never really thought I had much to add to the conversation that was occurring at 'MADtv.' I didn't know what I would do on the show. But I showed up, and I was surprised - it was fun to work on. Everybody there was really nice, and they seemed to be interested in my contributions.

- Andy Daly

Always Great Sense

I grew up in a show business family, so we've always had a great sense of balance, being so close to my parents.

- Andy Gibb

Always Great Sense

I grew up in a show business family, so we've always had a great sense of balance, being so close to my parents. I've always known what is and isn't reality.

- Andy Gibb

Other Putting

While all the other kids were out playing ball and stuff, I used to stay in my room and imagine that there was a camera in the wall. And I used to really believe that I was putting on a television show and that it was going out to somewhere in the world.

- Andy Kaufman

Big Many

My big fear is that I'll put down so many people, I'll have to leave show biz.

- Andy Kindler

Screen Very

Wong Kar Wai is a very intense character, very personable, and I believe in general he does not like and he would not want his actors to show their true looks and their true personality on screen.

- Andy Lau

Taste Were

The people on 'Quintuplets' were great, but I wasn't a producer on that show, and it wasn't exactly my taste.

- Andy Richter

Movies Been

It's the movies that have really been running things in America ever since they were invented. They show you what to do, how to do it, when to do it, how to feel about it, and how to look how you feel about it.

- Andy Warhol

Doing Brings

Different films, different genres show the different things I do. It's nice because it brings different groups of people to following what I'm doing. So hopefully, it kind of reiterates that I'm not just a one-trick pony as well.

- Aneurin Barnard

Hands I Think

Usually with this genre the first thing that happens is a good fight sequence to show that you're in good hands. So we broke that rule. I think a lot of that comes from the western audience.

- Ang Lee

Grow No Fear

I try to show that I have no fear. When you grow up hungry, you're not afraid of anything.

- Angel Cabrera

Law Origin

We show deference to the civil authorities when they respect the divine origin of their power and when they serve the people with objective reference to the law of God.

- Angelo Scola

Ya Range

Initially, I wanted to write middle grade. YA scared me: there's a lot of responsibility in being a YA author. It's so important to give that age range the right books that reflect their world and show them themselves.

- Angie Thomas

Business Therapy

Show business is the best possible therapy for remorse.

- Anita Loos

Easy Would

I have called the co-host job at the 'Today Show' my dream job, and I would be lying if I said it was easy to leave that job.

- Ann Curry

Business Tainted

Show business got really tainted for me.

- Anna Chlumsky

Business Thrown

There were a lot of signs being thrown at me, a lot of angels I was meeting, inspiring me to get back into show business.

- Anna Chlumsky

I Think I Remember

I think tights make a comeback out of necessity every season: you can only go so far with naked legs in the cold! You've got to protect yourself. I remember going to a fashion show and saying, 'And it's okay if I wear nude tights with this?' to the designer, who looked at me like I just killed his dog or something.

- Anna Kendrick

Feel Feels

I want to do stage again, because there just aren't words for how great it is. People say that all the time, 'There's nothing like live theater, blah blah,' but it's really true. I see a show and I know how they feel, and it feels great.

- Anna Kendrick

Love Movie

I actually love actresses who look like they feel really natural. I like Patricia Clarkson, Laura Linney, Frances McDormand. Those are actresses where the second they show up on screen you're like, oh my gosh, this movie just got so much better.

- Anna Kendrick

London Classes

I was always a show girl. My parents were wonderful. There wasn't a lot going on where we lived, but they ferried me to classes and competitions all over the place. When I was 12, I came to London as a finalist in a singing competition and I was completely wide-eyed.

- Anna Maxwell Martin

Big Southern

We all had to learn Southern accents. It wasn't a big research show. With the 'Wounded Knee' project, I locked myself in my apartment with history books so I would know what we're talking about.

- Anna Paquin

Fiction Before

Science fiction is exciting because it promises to show the world and the universe from perspectives radically unlike what we've seen before.

- Annalee Newitz

Made Ellen

The decisions that Ellen made on her show were between her and her producers. I supported her decisions. I was there to hug her when she got home.

- Anne Heche

Air Before

Travelers are always discoverers, especially those who travel by air. There are no signposts in the sky to show a man has passed that way before. There are no channels marked. The flier breaks each second into new uncharted seas.

- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Reflection Surely

The Amateur Marriage grew out of the reflection that of all the opportunities to show differences in character, surely an unhappy marriage must be the richest.

- Anne Tyler

Love Audience

And if there's anything movies can do in a way that I just love, and I love as an audience is, 'Show me something I don't know about. Show me something I haven't seen.'

- Annette Bening

Doubt Nevada

In 2001, Katie Couric told 'Today Show' audiences that 7 percent of Americans doubt the moon landing happened - that it was staged in the Nevada desert.

- Annie Jacobsen

Goes Makes

If it makes you cry, it goes in the show.

- Annie Leibovitz

Doing One Day

'24' is such a unique show. I've done a lot of television, but the real-time aspect - where we're shooting over 10 months and actually only doing one day - it's just crazy.

- Annie Wersching

Beginning Ballet

The first show I did was 'The Nutcracker' ballet. I was one of the kids who comes out in the beginning.

- Ansel Elgort

Happy Tactile

'Happy Days' is the type of show that represents the best we can be. It's something warm, something tactile when life was good and life was simple.

- Anson Williams

Old Been

Things are changing. I've been training since I was 9 years old to stretch my wings as an actor dramatically, but have never really been afforded the opportunity to show that.

- Anthony Anderson

Very About

I'm very proud of the Rome episode of 'No Reservations' because it violated all the conventional wisdom about making television. You're never, ever supposed to do a food or travel show in black and white.

- Anthony Bourdain

Made Six

When I talk to children, I show them a typical drawing I made when I was six and point out to them that when I was their age, I didn't draw any better than any of them.

- Anthony Browne

Want Give

We don't want to show our hand to the fan base or give up too much too early.

- Anthony Michael Hall

Talk Show Till

I sleep till one, and I'm always surprised when someone in blue rinse on a talk show says, 'You're a genius, Mr. Newley, you do so many things.' Tony Newley never realized his potential, did the things he should have done.

- Anthony Newley

Lucky Some

With photography, you are lucky if you get people to look at your pictures at some point. There's no formal way to show them.

- Anton Corbijn

Love Anything

If I avoid anything, it's that I don't really go to places that are like a little corner of England. I also never mind going to a dance show because I love it all so much.

- Anton du Beke

Doing Dancing

I don't get grumpy at a 'Strictly' level, you understand. We're just making a television show - the person I'm dancing with can't dance; they're doing their best, and we're not going to win the World Championships.

- Anton du Beke

Held Part

I've never held out. I'm a first-class guy in any relationship. The first way of getting better is showing up, so I'm always going to show up and do my part and be ready to go.

- Antonio Brown
