Sound

Total Quotes : 716
Feel Good Feel

I look good. I feel good and not to sound conceited I sound great.

- A. J. McLean

America Would

It's funny because if you ever ask anyone in England to try and do a Beatles accent, no one knows what they really sound like. If you ask anyone in America, they would try and give it a go. English people just know their songs.

- Aaron Johnson

Young Very

My parents took me to see plays, starting from when I was very little. Oftentimes, I was too young to understand. I don't know what my parents were thinking - 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf' when I was eight years old, that kind of thing. So lots of times, I didn't understand what was going on, but I just loved the sound of dialogue.

- Aaron Sorkin

Tell Been

It's been a straight strip, I must tell you, I've enjoyed it all the way. If I'm saying things to make it sound like it's hard, hard work, it's not. It's beautiful work. It's fun work. It's everything you'd ever want to do.

- Aaron Spelling

Game Through

This might sound masochistic or narcissistic, I don't know, but when I'm not playing the game, the validations I feel about life are always through the hardships. I relate more to sadness, in a lot of ways, when I'm not playing.

- Abby Wambach

Advice Impressed

He who is not impressed by sound advice, lacks faith.

- Abu Bakr

Voice Main

My main influence is Kool G Rap and Cam'ron, pretty much. If you were to mix those two people up, I wish that would be me... This is my voice. I sound like nobody; I sound like me.

- Action Bronson

Boredom Records

I wanted to make good records. But my problem is I've got a low boredom threshold, so I wanted it to look and sound different with each album, which is really tantamount to suicide, cause people lose it, they lose it - they say: 'I like that, and that's not this.'

- Adam Ant

Say Like

When I say things that sound insane, like only the smartest million people should have the right to vote, well, I mean that.

- Adam Carolla

Other Our

I mean, Tool has a style, but we try to make all our songs sound different from each other.

- Adam Jones

Capture Isolate

To capture sound is to isolate a moment, canonize it, enter it into the historical register.

- Adam Mansbach

Mountains Converting

That mighty Being, who heaped up these craggy rocks, and reared these stupendous mountains, and poured out these streams in all directions, and scattered immortal beings throughout these deserts - He is present, by the influence of his Holy Spirit, and accompanies the sound of the gospel with converting, sanctifying power.

- Adoniram Judson

Left Like

I was left with an urge to make the guitar sound like things it shouldn't be able to sound like.

- Adrian Belew

Destiny Made

No trumpets sound when the important decisions of our life are made. Destiny is made known silently.

- Agnes de Mille

Album Depeche

Yazoo was Vince's sound ultimately. At the time Vince and I got together he had only recorded one album with Depeche and Depeche were to go on to greater things.

- Alison Moyet

Bad Useless

Molecular gastronomy is not bad... but without sound, basic culinary technique, it is useless.

- Alton Brown

Like Using

One often thinks that using 2 different things like visual and sound lead to 2 different conclusions - to a different content - but in in my case it is all one.

- Alva Noto

Bright Some

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

- Alan Dundes

Activity Confront

What a sound money system does is to stabilize all the elements in it, and reduces the uncertainty that people confront. And the one thing all human beings do when they are confronted with uncertainty is pull back, withdraw, disengage, and that means economic activity, which is really dealing with people, just goes straight down.

- Alan Greenspan

Honor Tracing

To the Master's honor all must turn, each in its track, without a sound, forever tracing Newton's ground.

- Albert Einstein

Going Made

With Fever, the film was so made for the screen, and there's so much surround sound that was done for the film - enormous detail paid to that. I wasn't thinking video, because I didn't know how it was going to turn out.

- Alex Winter

Reason Electrician

It is a neck-and-neck race between Mr. Gray and myself who shall complete our apparatus first. He has the advantage over me in being a practical electrician - but I have reason to believe that I am better acquainted with the phenomena of sound than he is - so that I have an advantage there.

- Alexander Graham Bell

Cold Here

If you take a cold, blunt view of most religions, and you sort of say, 'Well, here's the basis for it,' most of them sound crazy. It's the belief that makes them real. I was interested in that question: When does a belief become a myth? When does something you believe in become just a story?

- Alexi Zentner

Pig Purity

These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.

- Alfred Hitchcock

Tell Other

Dialogue should simply be a sound among other sounds, just something that comes out of the mouths of people whose eyes tell the story in visual terms.

- Alfred Hitchcock

Veterans Day Go

I go where the sound of thunder is.

- Alfred M. Gray

I Think Next

The late sixties and early seventies were kind of a breeding ground for exciting new sounds because easy listening and folk were kind of taking over the airwaves. I think it was a natural next step to take that blissful, easy-going sound and strangle the life out of it.

- Alice Cooper

Some Videos

What I realised is, watching some old home videos, I've always had a weird accent. It's because I spent a lot of time on film sets. But Australia will always be home... I sound like the Qantas ad, don't I?

- Alice Englert

Drops Equally

It's a relief to hear the rain. It's the sound of billions of drops, all equal, all equally committed to falling, like a sudden outbreak of democracy. Water, when it hits the ground, instantly becomes a puddle or rivulet or flood.

- Alice Oswald

I Think Very

I like to focus on making the music sound simple and true, and very lush and full. I think music should take you to somewhere else where you have the space to contemplate or exercise your imagination. All the while you should be feeling real good, like when you have a delicious and decadent meal, macaroni and cheese or foie gras.

- Alice Smith

Responsible Banks

I come from a state with many sound, responsible banks.

- Amy Klobuchar

Voice Been

I had been struggling with how to create a child-like protagonist's voice without making it sound as though I was 'dumbing down' to the character. They are able to see events, people and places with an intensity and open mindedness that adults lack.

- An Na

Sounds Utter

One of the greatest sounds of them all - and to me it is a sound - is utter, complete silence.

- Andre Kostelanetz

Tell Big

I go to universities to talk to the students and teach them how to watch movies. Movies have so many elements - acting, music, art direction, costumes. I also tell them not to watch pirated movies. At the cinema, they can enjoy the big screen and the surround sound.

- Andrew Lau

May Considered

It may sound amazing to people today, but Rodgers and Hammerstein were considered by - how can I put it? - the sort of opinion-making tastemakers and everything to be 'off the scale as sentimental.'

- Andrew Lloyd Webber

Focus I Think

My number one focus is and will always be football. I wanted to make sure that companies I partner with not only respect that, but also make sense and are quality products. I think Klipsch is synonymous with quality in the sound industry, so it was a natural partnership.

- Andrew Luck

Some Type

Manic depression is a type of depression, technically, and it's the opposite of uni-polar. Manic depression is also called bi-polar disorder. Some people don't like to call it that because they think it makes it sound too nice, when the reality is if you have manic-depression you have manic-depression.

- Andy Behrman

Like Anybody

I never tried to sing like anybody else, fortunately I didn't sound like anybody else. It just happened.

- Andy Williams

Book Okay

I wanted to have a book that showed there's no one way to sound black. I wanted to tell teens that the way you speak is okay; you're good the way you are.

- Angie Thomas

Through Like

A lot of times you'll hear bands and it's a different sound coming out than what's on stage. Because you can clean it up through a PA and make it sound completely different than what they really sound like.

- Angus Young

Been About

These days, my main guitar amps have been Magnatone. They're beautiful. Magnatones have actual tremolo, which I recently learned about guitar amps. Often what guitar amps call vibrato is really just a volume Up and Down. But Magnatone has a true vibrato, which is pitch bending. And so, it's just a lush sound.

- Ani DiFranco

Doing Tell

We are doing everything we can to protect the food supply. And I can tell you that we're making decisions based upon sound science and good public policy, given the circumstances that we are now in.

- Ann Veneman

Like Some

I like the way remixes sound. Some of them are really creative.

- Ann Wilson

Happen Idea

Usually one or two things happen: Either you have an idea straightaway - the sort of sound that you want or the instrumentation or one particular sound that you want to feature - or you don't.

- Anne Dudley

Words Voices

It's really the sound of the voices, the sound of the words, the sound of the sound that we're interested in.

- Anne Dudley

Independent Own

Although I'm only fourteen, I know quite well what I want. I know who is right and who is wrong. I have my opinions, my own ideas and principles, and although it may sound pretty mad from an adolescent, I feel more of a person than a child. I feel quite independent of anyone.

- Anne Frank

Navy Rather

If people weren't watching, I'd be so much more eccentric. I know it makes me sound weak, but rather than make myself happy and wear the silly hat and say, 'Oh, I don't care,' I actually really don't feel like getting made fun of. So I put on something boring and navy and go out and try to disappear.

- Anne Hathaway

Very Had

I work very hard on all my poems, but most of the work consists of trying not to sound as if I had worked. I try to make them sound as natural as possible, but within a quite strict form, which to my ears has a lot to do with musical rhythm and sound.

- Anne Stevenson

Other Cab

I found my first novel difficult. I don't want to make it sound like it's any more difficult than driving a cab or going to any other job, but there are so many opportunities for self-doubt, that you just kind of need to soldier on.

- Anthony Doerr

Alive Whole

Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.

- Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Journey May

It may sound cliched, but 'Strictly' is a real journey. I try to encourage my partner to stay in as long as they can, but above all to enjoy it.

- Anton du Beke

Music Thinking

I do get credit for having a California sound to my music, but I don't think people really know what that means - they think the Beach Boys. I'm thinking more like Sunset Strip in the 1960s and stuff like that.

- Ariel Pink

Had Put

I had done a cover of the song 'Nenani Neevani' and put it up on Sound Cloud, which Sunny M.R., the music composer of Rowdy Fellow, came across. He liked it and approached me for 'Yedho.'

- Armaan Malik

Always Been

I don't try to be someone I'm not - I've always followed my heart and trance has always been my main sound.

- Armin van Buuren

Experience Voice

I limited myself to one shout a day. But I didn't like the sound of my voice. It sounded panicked, it sounded scared. And I knew from experience you can't hear more than 50 yards either way down a canyon.

- Aron Ralston

Clear Bodies

If we are to perpetuate the state, we must not only produce citizens, but good citizens - men and women of sound bodies, clear minds and clean souls.

- Arthur Capper

Star Distant

It is sound judgment to hope that in the not too distant future we shall be competent to understand so simple a thing as a star.

- Arthur Eddington

Money Society

Sound money is the sine qua non of a prosperous society.

- Arthur Laffer

Sometimes Subject

Eddie Murphy said once in an interview that nothing is offensive if it's funny. I sort of agree with that, but if something's funny and you're the subject of it, sometimes it's more offensive. If someone's insulting you, you want them to sound like an idiot.

- Artie Lange

Me Poem

The poem, for me, is simply the first sound realized in the modality of being.

- Charles Olson

Mean Like

I sound like Homer. I mean Winslow Homer.

- Charles Olson

Wal-Mart May

A future at Wal-Mart may sound a less-than-stellar prospect, but it's a whole lot better than no future at all.

- Charles Platt

Good Always

I've wanted to write good pop music, beautiful pop music - not just throwaways. I've always wanted to make it sound luscious and beautiful and cinematic.

- Charli XCX

Voice Mixed

Starting out, I bet I didn't get a lot of parts because of my strange voice. I'm not consciously thinking, 'Hey, sound like a squeaky dog toy mixed with a bagful of rusty nails.' It's just what my voice has done.

- Charlie Day

Play Part

People say I play real loud. I don't, actually. I'm recorded loud and a lot of that is because we have good engineers. Mick knows what a good drum sound is as well, so that's part of the illusion really. I can't play loud.

- Charlie Watts

Play About

My favorite thing about guitar, and the thing that always drew me to it when I was first learning to play it, was those moments when you think you know what it might sound like, but you don't, and then you hit it, and it's a total surprise. You hear it with really fresh ears. Alternate tunings, for me, they give that back.

- Charlie Worsham

Artist Sometimes

Sometimes people ask me, 'You do stand-up?' I try explaining what I do, and I don't think they really get it. So: 'Yeah, I do stand-up.' I wish there was one word to express what I do - that way, I don't sound arrogant. Whenever I say I'm a performer, people think I'm a performance artist: 'She paints herself white and pretends to be a flower.'

- Charlyne Yi

Vibe Almost

FKA Twigs is stunning. She has beautiful contemporary and unique sound with an almost psychedelic vibe. Her music is great for the runway.

- Chelsea Leyland

Reach Needed

There are writers who pour out words, concepts that sound really important but that basically say nothing. I always tried to be as concise as possible, all to try and reach everyone, but especially the simple people, those who needed to be reached more than anyone else.

- Chespirito

Hours Could

I second guess everything I do musically, and I often could spend hours on, say, one snare sound.

- Chet Faker

Straightforward Very

I have this natural want to... when things sound very easy and straightforward, something inside me always makes me want to take a left turn. If it comes to me and it's too simple, there has to be a more complicated route. I will complicate things like that at times.

- Chino Moreno

Book Deliver

I often get asked, 'Is the book dead?' It hasn't happened yet. It's different than music. Music was always meant to be pure sound - it started out as pure sound and now it's pure sound again. But books started out as things. Words on paper began as words on paper. The paperback book is the best technology to deliver that information to you.

- Chip Kidd

Doing Sometimes

This is going to sound completely absurd, but I do sometimes feel like the enjoyment of an awards ceremony or the pride in the finished article hasn't ever surpassed the joy of doing the work, of making it. The doing it is really the bit I'm there for.

- Chiwetel Ejiofor

Love Snoring

I really love the sound of my dog snoring.

- Chris Evans

Own About

Any time you talk about your own stuff you sound self-aggrandising.

- Chris Isaak

Magic Mechanical

I like things that don't sound particularly processed or mechanical or made by machines. I like music that contains human elements, with all their flaws. There's air in it, and you can hear a room of a bunch of guys playing. Those are the magic parts.

- Chris Stapleton

Only Writer

I only sound intelligent when there's a good script writer around.

- Christian Bale

Records Groove

People who care about records are always giving me a hard time. I mean, I would destroy records in performances, and break them, and whatever I could do to them to create a sound that was something else than just the sound that was in the groove.

- Christian Marclay

Most Correct

The sibilant s is the most difficult sound to correct.

- Christine Baranski

Like Something

I tend to like the traditional sound: three-part harmonies, guitar, and piano. I mean, a well-played guitar is a joy forever... or something.

- Christine McVie

Over Created

When you're directing, you see your ideas. You see them created right in front of you on the monitor and the sound stage. You get that experience all over again when you get into the editing room and you start playing with it.

- Christopher Gorham

Voice Been

'Psycho' is probably the best known example of a horror film whose exclusive sound was strings, and since then, it's been hard to avoid that. The minute you have strings as your primary voice, the comparisons are always made.

- Christopher Young

Fate Acceptable

If our minds were originally formed by nature in a sound and useful manner, then they pass on all the forces of fate, which imposes on us from outside in a relatively unobjectionable and more acceptable way.

- Chrysippus

Doing Changing

Well, there are certain words and emotions I don't want kids hearing, and I'm not changing because they think it's going to sell better. This is going to sound horrible, but I got 12 million votes doing what I did.

- Clay Aiken

Remains Out

In this age when people expect to get their music for free, we have to work out how we can protect the rights of creative artists so they are compensated fairly and that the record business itself remains sound and healthy.

- Clive Davis

Doing Through

Many years ago, when I lived in the mini-Siberia they call East Anglia, I was awakened in the early hours by the sound of a pantechnicon being loaded. Peeping through the curtains, I observed the grocer doing a runner with all his chattels and his family.

- Clive Sinclair

Very Plane

We have as many planes of speech as does a painting planes of perspective which create perspective in a phrase. The most important word stands out most vividly defined in the very foreground of the sound plane. Less important words create a series of deeper planes.

- Constantin Stanislavski

Mixed Funk

I have a sound. It's called 'funk mixed with stank.' That's what I do.

- Craig Robinson

Play Used

When I was younger, I just liked the sound of different accents, and I used to just play around to see if I could do things. I hear accents like music, so that's what helps me to learn them.

- Cynthia Erivo

Be Careful Use

The stage is our pulpit, and you can use all of that energy and that music and the lights and the colors and the sound. But you know, you've got to be careful.

- D'Angelo

Potatoes Keys

I played a lot of keyboards, but I really wanted to produce the sound that was in my head that I was trying to emulate on the keys. I wanted to do it for real. And it makes me look at the keys in a different way. So it's like I'm looking at the guitar and bass more like meat and potatoes and keys like coloring over top of it, you know.

- D'Angelo

I Think Watching

I think the process is one of using the camera and sound in the way a detective uses a magnifying glass: to find the clues. They're discovery devices, not performance devices - you're watching things the way a cat does. You're not judging. You're there to witness something.

- D. A. Pennebaker

Will Like

If you make it sound too much like a synth, it will just sound like a guitar part played on a synth.

- Daisy Berkowitz

Dreamer Evolved

A revolution is to bring on change and we're spiritual people trying to bring on spiritual change. It might sound like I'm a dreamer, but economic models have reached their height of evolution. Technology has evolved. What hasn't evolved is mankind's spirituality; everything is from 3,000 years ago.

- Damian Marley

Dreamer Evolved

It might sound like I'm a dreamer, but economic models have reached their height of evolution. Technology has evolved. What hasn't evolved is mankind's spirituality; everything is from 3,000 years ago. With spirituality comes morals, a better way of thinking.

- Damian Marley

Dad Vocal

You see people you identify with, and you take pieces of people you like and shape who you are. Like, I sound just like my dad. But that's literally my vocal chords. I can't sound like anything else... I sound like him, but I act like myself.

- Damon Wayans, Jr.

Sometimes Part

I had different bands. I played with the Acoustic Warriors for the most part, without girl singers. It was the same kind of sound, acoustic guitar, bass, with violin and sometimes accordion, and the guys would sing, that kind of thing.

- Dan Hicks

Hiring Quick

In a world where people are hungry for quick fixes and sound bites, for instant gratification, there's no patience for the long, slow rebuilding process: implementing after-school programs, hiring more community workers to act as mentors, adding more job training programs in marginalized areas.

- Dan Hill

Doing Almost

It's almost like he's started to sound even more exotic the more people started doing him. I don't know why, but there's just something about Al Gore that makes me laugh.

- Dana Carvey

Education Witnessed

I have witnessed how education opens doors, and I know that when sound instruction takes place, students experience the joys of new-found knowledge and the ability to excel.

- Daniel Akaka
