Long Idea

I tried the paleo diet, which is the caveman diet - lots of meat. And I tried the calorie restriction diet: The idea is that if you eat very, very little - if you're on the verge of starvation, you will live a very long time, whether or not you want to, of course.

- A. J. Jacobs

Passionate Half

There's a very passionate pro-chewing movement on the Internet called Chewdiasm. They say that we should be chewing 50 to 100 times per mouthful, which is insane. I tried that. It takes like a day and a half to eat a sandwich. But their basic idea is right. If you chew, you'll eat slower and you will get more nutrients.

- A. J. Jacobs

Move Read

I was very good at sitting. But I just read so much research about how horrible sitting is for you. It's like, it's really bad. It's like Paula-Deen-glazed-bacon-doughnut bad. So I now move around as much as possible.

Nevertheless Another

It would no doubt be very sentimental to argue - but I would argue it nevertheless - that the peculiar combination of joy and sadness in bell music - both of clock chimes, and of change-ringing - is very typical of England. It is of a piece with the irony in which English people habitually address one another.

- A. N. Wilson

Nothing Original

I've got nothing very original to say myself.

- A. N. Wilson

Going Obviously

If you know somebody is going to be awfully annoyed by something you write, that's obviously very satisfying, and if they howl with rage or cry, that's honey.

Dislike Christians

I very much dislike the intolerance and moralism of many Christians, and feel more sympathy with Honest Doubters than with them.

- A. N. Wilson

Church Perfectly

When Christians start thinking about Jesus, things start breaking down, they lose their faith. It's perfectly possible to go to church every Sunday and not ask any questions, just because you like it as a way of life. They fear that if they ask questions they'll lose their Christ, the very linchpin of their religion.

- A. N. Wilson

- A. R. Rahman

Other Larger

The institution of marriage works better when there's a spiritual connection. If you're marrying just for the sake of the woman, then you may lose interest in each other very soon. When we marry in the interest of the Holy Spirit with the intention of serving God and humanity, then it gives a much larger perspective.

- A. R. Rahman

Some Projects

Some things are very low profile, but if they excite me creatively, I accept them. Sometimes there are high-profile projects, and you have to do it. We all have human limitations. It is a painful decision to turn things down. Even accepting 'Slumdog Millionaire' was a decision that I had to sacrifice another project.

- A. R. Rahman

Originality Movie

The demand in India is to have a hit, which becomes a promotion for the movie and makes people come to the theater. You have five songs and different promotions based on those. But when I do Western films, the need for originality is greater. Then I become very conscious about the writing.

- A. R. Rahman

Purpose I Think

After a point of time, when you get success and fame, money and everything, the purpose of life has to be redefined. For me, I think that purpose is to build bridges. Artists can do that very easily, more than politicians.

- A. R. Rahman

Work Always

I don't understand why, in my work, writing is always so dangerous. It's very destructive. People who write books are destroyers.

- A. Scott Berg

Deep Always

I'm not very interested in myself. I do have a deep moral belief that you should always look out at other things and not be self-centred.

- A. S. Byatt

Motherhood Idea

I grew up with that completely fictive idea of motherhood, where the mother never strayed from the kitchen. All the women in my books are very afraid that if they do anything with their minds they won't be complete women. I don't think my daughters' generation has that feeling.

- A. S. Byatt

Hollywood Dean

By the '40s, Sam Goldwyn is a very serious man. By the '50s, he's the dean of American producers. To the end, he was Hollywood's gray eminence.

- A. Scott Berg

Ring Been

Shinsuke Nakamura is probably one of the best wrestlers I've ever been in the ring with. He's very unorthodox. Everything he does is with knockout power. He's a guy who is very flamboyant, so don't let his Michael Jackson antics fool you. This guy is deadly.

- A.J. Styles

New Here

Wrestling in Japan, obviously, the fans are a little bit different - very quiet, very respectful in New Japan - but here in the WWE, these fans are going nuts.

- A.J. Styles

Career Deal

At my house, it's an, 'If dad says it, you can say it' kind of deal, so a lot of my slang words come off very childish at this point in my career.

- Aaliyah

Love Scientist

My father left me with his love of Jewish studies and cultural life. To this very day, along with several physicians and scientist colleagues, I take regular periodical lessons taught by a Rabbinical scholar on how the Jewish law views moral and ethical problems related to modern medicine and science.

- Aaron Ciechanover

Small Models

To develop drugs for people, we basically dismantle the system. In the lab, we look at things the size of a cell or two. We dismantle life into very small models.

- Aaron Ciechanover

Young I Think

My father, I think he played percussion in high school. My mother played piano when she was very young, but only for a brief while. I don't think she had a great teacher. In any case, neither of them were really into music at a young age.

- Aaron Diehl

African American

I had experiences or exposure to music in church. I went to a church, it was very unique. It was a predominantly African American Catholic church. So they would have - one mass would be traditional church music, and then the other mass would be gospel music.

- Aaron Diehl

Jazz I Think

I consider myself very fortunate. I mean, I think there's that old saying, 'Where there's a will, there's a way,' and I just have such a passion for jazz music and playing the piano that I just find a way to make it work, so to speak. Fortunately, I have so far.

- Aaron Diehl

Love Been

When I was fourteen years old, our family drove all the way from Vancouver to Newfoundland and back. I've been all across the great land of Canada. I absolutely love the Maritimes, and I'm very excited to go back, particularly in the fall when it's one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

Think Important

I think they are very important because westerns have a code and a symbolism.

Data Possibilities

The possibilities for creation and insight are endless. We're constantly collecting more data, and it's starting to be very relevant to our lives.

- Aaron Koblin

Hands Been

I've always been a bit of a mix between art and technology. I used to paint a lot, but I'm not very good with my hands. It has always been a fusion between my computer gaming interests and being exposed to the rich data of society that we live in.

- Aaron Koblin

Think Employ

I think I'm the kind of person who would be very difficult to employ - I'm pretty annoying, but driven.

- Aaron Levie

Entertainment About

I interned at Miramax and subsequently at Paramount because I was really curious about the future of entertainment - how were we going to get films online? While the inspiration for Box didn't come from that experience directly, it was very obvious that bigger businesses had a lot of slow processes and cumbersome technology.

- Aaron Levie

Fact Confront

We have to confront the very scary fact that the president is a moron. He's really dumb.

Receive Been

I was very surprised when I heard that I had been chosen to receive the James Cardinal Gibbons Award.

Alive Before

I am very honored and excited to have 'Devotion' released as the first DVD Audio disc... surround sound is amazing... The music comes alive and is so vibrant - it's unlike anything you've ever heard before!

- Aaron Neville

Dress Other

The way you dress or the car you drive or what you spend is to impress other people with how, I guess, successful and rich you are. But you're not, and you shouldn't, and who gives a damn what other people think anyway. So, that mentality, I think, is very destructive.

- Aaron Patzer

Steal Aspiring

One of my top tips for aspiring entrepreneurs: Tell everyone you know about your idea. This runs contrary to the instinct that most people have, because they're afraid someone is going to 'steal my ideal.' Ideas alone are worth very little; it's in the execution and market feedback that companies are made.

- Aaron Patzer

Beginning Pretty

When I first started, I just wanted to work. I wouldn't necessarily do anything, but I'd pretty much almost do anything at the very beginning.

- Aaron Paul

Small Over

I grew up all over Idaho - I was born in Emmett, a very small town.

I definitely had a very religious upbringing. My father was just instilling good morals into us at a very young age, and it wasn't super-strict, but it was a loving, warm household.

- Aaron Paul

Obsessed Odd Jobs

I was very driven in high school. I worked a bunch of odd jobs. I never partied. I never drank. I was just a theater geek who was obsessed with movies.

- Aaron Paul

Unconscious About

When you're mid-season, in very intense situations, it's hard not to take that home with you. Especially when you're sleeping, you can't control what you dream about. And it sneaks into the unconscious.

- Aaron Paul

Tell I Write

Well, I must tell you I write the scripts very close to the bone. So I'm writing episode seven now and couldn't tell you what happens in episode eight.

- Aaron Sorkin

Next Move

It's all about trying to be very careful about what your next role or what your next move is gonna be. It's all about trying to have longevity in this business and make smart choices.

- Aaron Paul

Always Still

From the very beginning, I've always just wanted to do something I've never done before. I'm still just trying to be on that path. It's all about working with filmmakers that you believe in.

- Aaron Paul

Been Supportive

I've been a fan of Burberry for a very long time and they've been so supportive of me for many years.

- Aaron Paul

Doing Bad

It's very exciting to be able to just work in this business, let alone on stuff you are extremely proud of. So it does make me a little nervous, because 'Breaking Bad' is so special. It's great being part of something so great because people pay attention to you, hopefully because you're doing good work.

- Aaron Paul

Always Stems

I have always had a very natural connection to the water, and that connection stems from the ocean itself.

- Aaron Peirsol

Which Methods

My biggest challenge is cooking traditional French dishes, which usually require very specific techniques and methods. That's just not my style... I cook from the soul.

- Aaron Sanchez

Pieces Feels

I like to mix pieces in my art direction from the '60s or the '40s and the '90s and present-day stuff. To me, that feels very real. When I go into people's houses, it's not all today.

- Aaron Ruell

My Life Here

When I was a teenager, I worked in New Orleans for a chef named Paul Prudhomme. That was a very important time in my life as a chef. I developed my palate and learned a lot. And here I am now. I specialize in modern Mexican and contemporary Latin cuisines.

- Aaron Sanchez

Away Regional

I wanted to get away from the Mexican vernacular and do more 'nuevo Latino.' Americans are starting to understand regionality in Mexican food. It is very regional in terms of ingredients.

- Aaron Sanchez

Deep Flavors

Marcus Samuelsson is a chef who inspires me everyday. He has such a deep understanding of flavors and techniques. His food is representative of the diverse world that we live in. What he has done in Harlem with Red Rooster is very special. Marcus is not just a chef, he's a food activist.

- Aaron Sanchez

Limited Goes

There really isn't a story that you can't tell inside of it. It's very much a clearinghouse for anything that goes on in the world. So you're not at all limited.

- Aaron Sorkin

Think I Think

The rules of drama are very much separate from the properties of life. I think that's especially true of Shakespeare.

- Aaron Sorkin

Play Couple

The first thing I wrote was a one-act play that got accepted at a one-act play festival, and I was in it along with Nathan Lane and a couple of other very good actors.

- Aaron Sorkin

Small Idea

I find television, and particularly live television, very romantic: the idea that there is this small group of people, way up high, in a skyscraper in the middle of Manhattan, beaming this signal out into the night.

- Aaron Sorkin

Young Sound

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

About Around

I'm very physical. When I'm writing, I'm playing all the parts; I'm saying the lines out loud, and if I get excited about something - which doesn't happen very often when I'm writing, but it's the greatest feeling when it does - I'll be out of the chair and walking around, and if I'm at home, I'll find myself two blocks from my house.

- Aaron Sorkin

Think Country

I think I would have done very well as a writer in the Forties. I think the last time America was a great country was then or not long after. It was before Vietnam, before Watergate.

- Aaron Sorkin

Movie Jobs

If you lined up 10 writers and asked them to write a movie about Steve Jobs, you'd get 10 very different movies.

- Aaron Sorkin

I Think Gotten

Now I've even gotten to running out to the fan buses that pass by our house, so I can talk to the people. I think I'm trying to gather fans, frankly. They're very, very nice people - they really understand. It's fun talking to them.

- Aaron Spelling

Love TV

I don't remember a drama on TV that had shown a couple could be married but still love each other very much, spend every day as if they were still on their honeymoon, be sensuous, and have fun together.

- Aaron Spelling

Doing Young

Nowadays, people always say, how come he's doing such young shows? But they never mention The Mod Squad. I was very proud of that show. It's the first time an African-American guy kissed a white girl.

- Aaron Spelling

Think Been

I've been recognized very seldom. I think I just look different in person than I do as the character.

- Aaron Stanford

Horror Created

Wes Craven is obviously a horror film icon so I was definitely very interested in bringing something back to life that Wes had created.

- Aaron Stanford

Tell Rhythms

Matt Weiner is very perceptive; there's something about the rhythms and the way people speak that is very authentic to the actor. But there are qualities that are dissimilar. The characters on 'Mad Men' are struggling with pretty profound unhappiness, but I can tell you this is a happy bunch.

- Aaron Staton

Always Wins

I feel very competitive with Robert Morse off-set. We often duke it out. He always wins.

- Aaron Staton

Process Took

I never wore a single fedora filming 'L.A. Noire.' It took about an hour and a half to do the hair - it was a very precise process.

- Aaron Staton

I See Reasons

When I go to a library and I see the librarian at her desk reading, I'm afraid to interrupt her, even though she sits there specifically so that she may be interrupted, even though being interrupted for reasons like this by people like me is her very job.

- Aaron Swartz

School High

I was a very awkward high schooler, especially in early high school.

- Aaron Tveit

High Wanted

I was very unsure about what I wanted to do in high school.

- Aaron Tveit

Always Which

My mom always knew I was going to be an actor because I was a ham from the very beginning, so she would push me toward it, which is really unconventional for Indian families to do.

- Aarti Mann

Think Fancy

I don't cook fancy every day. I don't think anybody can, nor would it be very good for you.

- Aarti Sequeira

Education Chicken

I started cooking seven years ago for real, and I started with pasta, and lasagna and roast chicken. Very normal American dishes. When I turned on Food Network, or any sort of cooking channel, that's what people were making. So that's where your education comes from.

- Aarti Sequeira

Behind Out

So many of the recipes that I come up with have a story. I'm a blogger. It flowed very naturally out of me, but I also knew this was a way to set my recipes apart. A, they are always using interesting ingredients but B, there is always a story behind it.

- Aarti Sequeira

Like Center

The experience of being on a show that is very much in the center of popular culture is exciting. You really feel like you're reaching people.

- Aasif Mandvi

Cultural Means

My family is Muslim. But I don't consider myself a very devout Muslim, but a cultural Muslim, whatever that means.

- Aasif Mandvi

Play Became

I did a play called 'Disgraced' in 2012 at Lincoln Center, which ultimately won the Pulitzer Prize. I played the lead character, a Muslim American, who had renounced Islam and became very anti-Islam.

- Aasif Mandvi

Think I Think

Your results are very quantifiable. And nobody can take those results away from you. They are yours... All of that, I think, is very good for women.

- Abagail Johnson
