Works

Total Quotes : 1495
Art Always

In India, nobody really talks about works of art; they always talk about the appreciation of art. You buy this for 3,000 rupees, it'll become 30,000 in two months.

- A. Balasubramaniam

Harmony Very

Now, occultism is not like mystic faculty, and it very seldom works in harmony either with business aptitude in the things of ordinary life or with a knowledge of the canons of evidence in its own sphere.

- A. E. Waite

Believe Two

English is necessary as at present original works of science are in English. I believe that in two decades times original works of science will start coming out in our languages. Then we can move over like the Japanese.

- A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Through Buy

I follow a simple formula when I compose. I ask myself, 'What would the audience want to hear?' and 'Why would they buy my CDs?' And the process of answering these questions through music follows. Sometimes, it works. Sometimes, it backfires.

- A. R. Rahman

Mind Processes

I'm quite interested in my own mental processes, simply because I'm a failed scientist, and because I'm interested in how the brain and the mind works, and I like to avoid easy descriptions.

- A. S. Byatt

Part WWE

I busted my tail for so long, I'm just glad it's getting recognized now as part of the WWE. Because let's face it, the WWE is the biggest company out there when it comes to wrestling. I'm just happy that I'm being recognized as somebody who works hard, I guess.

- A.J. Styles

Social Communicate

The dynamic with social is you tend not to have products with 30% market share. It's all or nothing. Email works because we have open standards that let you communicate across any email client.

- Aaron Levie

Been Directors

I have a lot of respect for people who are great at ad-libbing and for writers and directors who are able to create a scene in which that works. Judd Apatow is fantastic at it. But as an audience member, I like the sound of something that's been written - I like it to sound written.

- Aaron Sorkin

Play Movie

A song in a musical works best when a character has to sing - when words won't do the trick anymore. The same idea applies to a long speech in a play or a movie or on television. You want to force the character out of a conversational pattern.

- Aaron Sorkin

Rich Unequal

At the end of the day, we have an economy that works for the rich by cheating the poor, and unequal schools are the result of that, not the cause.

- Aaron Swartz

Think Some

Religion works on some people but not on everyone, because it says, 'Stop thinking and accept what I tell you.' That's not valid for people who want to think and reflect.

- Abbas Kiarostami

Skin Use

Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi is just great. You get yourself in a hot bath to soften up your skin and then use this, and it really works. Plus, it's so easy to do, and you don't have to leave the house, so whenever you want to put sandals on, you don't have to worry about going to the salon.

- Abbey Clancy

Love Use

I love the Kerastase Hair Oils and the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer. They're great for making my hair really soft, but to be honest, any cheap conditioner works. Just leave it on and let it soak in, and it really helps, whatever you use.

- Abbey Clancy

College Game

When I was in college, I learned to really take care of my body and figured out what works best for me and what doesn't work for me when it comes to my nutrition. That helped so much on the field because soccer is such a fitness-oriented game.

- Abby Wambach

Away Effectiveness

Lets take away the incentives to do 'to' patients and instead create incentives to do 'for' patients, to be 'with' patients. We don't need to do comparative effectiveness trials to see if that works; we can just ask patients.

- Abraham Verghese

Small Interpreting

I wish to add my mite towards expounding & interpreting the Almighty, & his laws & works, for the most effective use of mankind; and certainly, I should feel it no small glory if I were enabled to be one of his most noted prophets (using this word in my own peculiar sense) in this world.

- Ada Lovelace

Will Frequently

Pride works frequently under a dense mask, and will often assume the garb of humility.

- Adam Clarke

Love Compare

'Reinventing the Bazaar,' by John McMillan, is a great and fun introduction to the wild variety and importance of markets throughout history and around the world. I finally understood how a Middle Eastern souk actually works economically and how to compare that to modern-day telecom-spectrum auctions. I love that book.

- Adam Davidson

Over Wins

The economy works best when better ideas win out over worse ideas, harder work wins out over less work, when it's a fair fight in the marketplace.

- Adam Davidson

Going Equivalent

I believe that Bitcoin is going to change the way that everything works. I want entrepreneurs to tell me how its going to change. Build the equivalent of an Iron Man suit with Bitcoin.

- Adam Draper

Doing Through

If God is not sending earthquakes, destroying economies and inflicting pain upon human beings, what is God doing? God works through people, calling them to help their neighbors in need. God comforts His people, walking with them even 'through the valley of the shadow of death.'

- Adam Hamilton

Work Some

Some of the greatest works of theater, from Chekov's work to modern playwrights', consist of just a few people in a room with no one leaving.

- Adam Rapp

Feels Hampshire

This character feels so much like my brother. He has two children. He has a wife. He works with me. He chooses to stay in New Hampshire because he wants his kids to grow up in the school they started with. He doesn't want them to lose friends. He is his family's hero.

- Adam Sandler

My Life Here

Prayer doesn't work because someone out there is listening, it works because someone in here is listening. I've paid attention. I've pictured what I want to happen in my life. I've meditated extensively on my family, my future, my past actions and what did and didn't work for me about them.

- Adam Savage

Couple Couple Times

The way Apatow works, you do it scripted a couple times, and then he just kind of lets you go and improvise.

- Adam Scott

Over Hang

Over the years, I've learned that if you can just hang in there and, regardless of what's presented to you, take it as a challenge and try to bring in something fresh, then it works.

- Adam West

Adapt Like

I really like being thrown into the works. Many actors, I have found, have this as a common trait. We had to, as children, adapt to various situations with either a military family or things like that.

- Adelaide Clemens

Human Being May

Every human being is unique and reacts differently to different food items. A diet that works for you may not necessarily work for your friend.

- Adnan Sami

Luck A Good Thing

I don't know if that's a year's bad luck, or if that's how it works. But stealing a Christmas tree - that can't be a good thing, karma-wise.

- Adrian McKinty

Making Mine

A friend of mine works for Autism Speaks. It's an amazing cause that is making a real difference in the lives of so many people.

- Adrienne Bailon

Admired Literally

I own works by women artists; it is hard for me to see, literally to see, how women and men differ in the quality of their work. Why are women artists less known and less admired?

- Agnes Gund

Through Compelling

In my own life, I share my home with works by artists like Elizabeth Murray, Martin Puryear, Jackie Windsor and so many others, whose creativity is clear and fresh and compelling; the works break through the usual, and they inspire creativity; they inspire responses and understanding.

- Agnes Gund

Art Sure

I do want to make powerful works of art with people, but I also just want to have fun. I've never done a romantic comedy - I'm sure it would be a blast.

- Ahna O'Reilly

Digital Undermining

The Bush administration works closely with a network of rapid response digital brownshirts who work to pressure reporters and their editors for 'undermining support for our troops.'

- Al Gore

Art Dilemmas

We have to put aside the customary historical reading of works of art in order to invite art to respond to certain quite specific pains and dilemmas of our psyches.

- Alain de Botton

Imagine Use

I'm an angry person, angrier than most people would imagine, I get flashes of anger. What works for me is working out when it's useful to use that anger.

- Alan Alda

Winning Other

Every physicist knows that things connect with each other. To isolate things is not the way the universe works - winning best actor is arbitrary.

- Alan Arkin

Magic Very

Do I believe, for example, that by using magic I could fly? No. How would you get around gravity? Impossible. Do I believe that I might be able to project my consciousness into a very, very vivid simulation of flying? Yeah. Yes, I've done that. Yes, that works.

- Alan Moore

Edge How

I'm dependent on writing for a living, so really it's to my advantage to understand how the creative process works. One of the problems is, when you start to do that, in effect you're going to have to step off the edge of science and rationality.

- Alan Moore

Leader Great Leader

War never accomplishes anything. It's never going to look good in the history books. People are never going to look back and think, 'He started a lot of wars; what a great leader he was!' That's not the way it works. God knows how many more of these things we're going to need before it starts to sink in.

- Alan Moore

Third Ways

There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.

- Alan Perlis

Still Very

We were very surprised to find out that Pluto is still geologically alive. It has upended our ideas of how planetary geophysics works.

- Alan Stern

Had How

I did a stint on 'Dollhouse,' and prior to my stint on 'Dollhouse,' I had no plans to be working with Joss Whedon until he said, 'Hey, do you want to do this?' When he calls, I'll pick up the phone, and that's how that works.

- Alan Tudyk

I Think Ageism

Ageism works in both directions. As a teenager in the public eye, people would talk condescendingly to me. When you get older there's this feeling that you have to start carving up your face and body. Right now I'm in the middle ground - I think women in their thirties are taken seriously.

- Alanis Morissette

Always Goes

I always wear a dinner jacket. I never have this definition of what goes for the morning or the evening or what works for the weekend.

- Alber Elbaz

Work Very

Twitter, to me, works if you're funny. Twitter doesn't work as a promotional tool unless you do it very, very, very occasionally.

- Albert Brooks

Feel About

When I'm not on the road, I try to intake about 300 grams of protein a day, which is a lot. I got really into how your body absorbs it and how you feel and how crazy it is when you intake that much food and actually feel better, your brain works better, and you actually lose weight even though you're eating more. It's so methodical.

- Albert Hammond, Jr.

Wait Couple

The way the press works, people don't like to review or talk about EPs. It's considered, 'Why don't you just wait for the record?' But for someone who's creating, and the audience, they can get material quicker. I almost feel like putting out a few songs every couple months might be better than putting out an album every year or two.

- Albert Hammond, Jr.

Impossible More

That's the terrible thing: the more one works on a picture, the more impossible it becomes to finish it.

- Alberto Giacometti

Other Feels

The finest works of art are precious, among other reasons, because they make it possible for us to know, if only imperfectly and for a little while, what it actually feels like to think subtly and feel nobly.

- Aldous Huxley

His Computer

My dad's a biophysicist. My brother is a computer guy. His wife works at Microsoft.

- Alec Berg

Love Wrote

I love the three-act theory. It works and works beautifully. But you don't necessarily have to structure a story that way: Cortazar and Borges wrote in different structural styles.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Small Away

It is the artist who realizes that there is a supreme force above him and works gladly away as a small apprentice under God's heaven.

- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Love Sometimes

Sometimes I'll come up with a lick that I really love, and I'll try to put the right words to it for years. Suddenly something comes to me that works just right.

- Alex Chilton

Show About

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

Voice Envy

Bryan Adams might not be what I want to put on, but he's a pop singer with a great voice and great guitar tone. Plus, he's done more for Canada than Rush have, because he works all the time. I envy him for that.

- Alex Lifeson

Other Before

Americans trash the planet not because we're evil, but because the industrial systems we've devised leave no other choice. Our ranch houses and high-rises, factories and farms, freeways and power plants were conceived before we had a clue how the planet works.

- Alex Steffen

City Quickly

If we're talking about transportation, the best thing a city can do is densify as quickly as it can. That needs to be said every time this issue comes up, because it's the only universal strategy that works.

- Alex Steffen

Sustainable Going

The idea that we are going to be able to take our entire society as it currently works and simply change the source of energy and make it sustainable is not actually congruent with reality.

- Alex Steffen

Hollywood Through

Like many works of literature, Hollywood chooses for its villains people who strive for social dominance through the pursuit of wealth, prestige, and power. But the ordinary business of capitalism is much more egalitarian: It's about finding meaning and enjoyment in work and production.

- Alex Tabarrok

Business How

You can't do business without money, of course, because that's how it works, but I'm not in business only for money.

- Alexander Mamut

Work Having

With '44 Scotland Street' I found myself having to work out how a daily novel works, and it is completely different to a conventional novel.

- Alexander McCall Smith

Treat Editing

Editing is such a voyeuristic treat for me. I land on a theme and ask authors to pen works that fit the topic.

- Alison Tyler

Some Reputations

When I grew up, there were locked cabinets in public libraries. You needed parental permission if you were under eighteen. I was let down by the overblown reputations of some hardcore fictional works.

- Allan Gurganus

United States Which

The Archivist of the United States essentially works for the American people across partisan lines and not, regardless of which Administration nominates the person, for a particular President or political party.

- Allen Weinstein

Big Very

We're just a big media family. My mom is always sending us articles throughout the day. My husband now works at Facebook... so it's just a very high-paced media culture, our texts. It's links and photos, and all hours of the day, because my dad, my brother, and I are night owls, and my mom and my husband wake up early.

- Allison Williams

His Sings

Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars, because it is his natural characteristic, so the artist works.

- Alma Gluck

Side Mercenary

Inspired by the purse rather than the soul, the mercenary side fairly screams in many of the works put out by every day American publishers.

- Alma Gluck

Subject Tapes

I made a lot of different experiments with tapes at that time, until I finally realized around 1995, that sound is an interesting subject for me. Ever since then sound got more and more integrated into my art works, musically as well as physically.

- Alva Noto

Love Bring

Make choices that bring love and joy to your body. It's not about perfection; it's about love and gratitude for an amazing body that works hard and deserves your respect.

- Alysia Reiner

Learned Forceful

Persuasiveness is really just about getting your ideas across without being forceful. It's a skill that can be learned and is useful for anyone who works in a team environment.

- Amanda de Cadenet

Building William

Zaha Hadid's Maxxi Museum is proof that Rome and contemporary architecture are no longer a paradox. The building is characteristic Hadid - with curving lines and organic shapes - and the permanent collection already boasts works by Francesco Clemente, William Kentridge, and Gerhard Richter.

- Amanda Hearst

May Cases

I believe, and I may be wrong, the system sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Prison is supposed to rehabilitate, but they don't do that in a lot of cases.

- Amaury Nolasco

Through Saturday

I work during the days and have night classes on Wednesday and Thursday and live with my partner, who is in school during the days and works Wednesday through Saturday nights. Monday and Tuesday are therefore our nights, and we both get our work out of the way so we can actually spend time together.

- Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Need Tournaments

Yes, I have had difficult times on court and at certain tournaments but you need to forget about it and go forward because that's the way it works in our world.

- Amelie Mauresmo

Always Away

I've noticed it a lot. I'm not someone who revises. It's always the first movement, it's that. It's an instinct. Either it works straight away, or it won't ever work.

- Amelie Nothomb

Doing I Think

I think the kick to doing comedy is just to get in a film with really funny people and let them do their jobs. I find that in most comedies, I'm not the funny one, which works out great.

- Amy Adams

Work More

What I respect in people more than anything is work ethic. And Justin Timberlake's got that. He works his tail off, and he knows his stuff.

- Amy Adams

Largest Ukrainian

Canada has the world's largest Ukrainian population outside of Ukraine and Russia. As a senator from Minnesota, a state with a large Ukrainian-American community, I understand how important it is that Canada works with us to stand up to Russian aggression in Ukraine.

- Amy Klobuchar

Show About

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

Magic Platter

I want witchcraft so bad that I can't stand it. I have wands in my apartment. And I use them sometimes. I walk into the kitchen with my wand, and I come out with something on a platter and I say, 'See, magic happens.' Works every time.

- Amy Sedaris

Luck Bad

My mother believed in curses, karma, good luck, bad luck, feng shui. Her amorphous set of beliefs showed me you can pick and choose the qualities of your philosophy, based on what works for you.

- Amy Tan

Take Were

We didn't invent gunpowder. What we did was take things that were there and put them together in a way that works.

- Ana Patricia Botin

Doing Play

I was focusing on sax while at Berklee, but then I started to play Brazilian choro and Colombian music. I was doing more folkloric stuff on the clarinet because it works better. Finally, I realized I was working more on the clarinet than the saxophone, and I started to feel more comfortable on it.

- Anat Cohen

Book Soviet Union

For a professional writer in the Soviet Union, it works this way. First, you have to have something to say - that's the main thing. Second, it's a matter of who publishes you. If your book has real stuff in it, readers will ferret it out, even in a Siberian journal.

- Anatoly Rybakov

Body Beehive

I like the Victory rolls, beehive, pompadour - all of that stuff. It's just cool. And actually, with ethnic hair, oddly enough, it works so well because I don't have to tease my hair to get body.

- Andra Day

Through Lightly

Homer, Vergil, Dante, Shakespeare, Goethe, Proust - not exactly authors one expects to whiz through or take lightly, but like all works of genius, they are meant to be read out loud and loved.

- Andre Aciman

Design Now

Now I design what I want to wear, and it works that way.

- Alexander McQueen

Wanting Been

I'm not a great student, so I don't know that I would have been a great detective. Part of my brain sort of works that way, like wanting to figure out puzzles and figure out what happened and why people do the things they do and who they are and how it happened.

- Alexandra Daddario

Invaluable Minor

Wilde is an invaluable acquaintance. Often, in situations where I am required to appear witty, I simply steal large chunks from his works and attempt to pass them off as my own with minor modifications.

- Alexandra Petri

Death Grind

As a comic, you try something and if it works you go with it and grind it to death.

- Alexei Sayle

Death Over

I've accentuated the look over the years. As a comic, you try something and if it works you go with it and grind it to death.

- Alexei Sayle

Think I Think

I think we're all fascinated and a little mystified by how the brain works. One of the most mysterious of the physical sciences is neurological science.

- Alexis Denisof

Habits Which

In all works on Natural History, we constantly find details of the marvellous adaptation of animals to their food, their habits, and the localities in which they are found.

- Alfred Russel Wallace

Magic Discover

For someone who works in theatre, the rehearsal is where you discover everything. It is where magic happens, where the script enters you and becomes part of you.

- Ali Fazal

Love Other

I feel more influenced in my own work by dreams than I do by other writers' works in a way. Or by popular culture, movies - what else is there to write about than love and loss?

- Alice Hoffman

Having Part

For me, having characters who are part of a faith then allows me to talk about how that faith either works or fails them without having to attack the institution.

- Alice McDermott

I Think Role

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

Think New

I don't think it ever works to tell people what they can't eat. They can do it for so long, and then they fall off. You have to bring them into a new relationship with food.

- Alice Waters

Through Fact

When I read 'Dream of Red Mansions,' I was really struck by the fact that it was built differently from a lot of genre works. Specifically, a lot of the events that should have taken centre-stage - wars, social upheavals - were seen entirely through the eyes of the women of a Chinese household.

- Aliette de Bodard
