Sound Very

My parents took me to see plays, starting from when I was very little. Oftentimes, I was too young to understand.

So lots of times, I didn't understand what was going on, but I just loved the sound of dialogue.

- Aaron Sorkin

TV TV Show

When I create a TV show, it's so that I can write it. I'm not an empire builder; my writing staff is usually a combination of two kinds of people - experts in the world the show is set in, and young writers who will not be unhappy if they're not writing scripts.

Student Country

In the 1970s, what I, as a young foreign student studying in the United States, found most dynamic, exciting and impressive about this country is what much of the world continues to value most about the U.S. today: its open intellectual culture, its great universities, its capacity for discovery and innovation.

- Ahmed Zewail

Education Receive

When you have strict censorship of the internet, young students cannot receive a full education. Their view of the world is imbalanced. There can be no true discussion of the issues.

Kid Everybody

I myself started out quite young; when you're working, professionally, even if you are in your teens, you just want to be treated the same as everybody else. You just want people to see you as an actor and not as a kid.

- Aidan Gillen

Through Before

I really like coming-of-age dramas. It's probably the most intense period in anyone's life, those years before you become an adult. Dramatically, there's so much to explore there. And it's nice to be around young talent coming through.

Cool I Am

I am young, and I am cool, and I want to wear cool clothes!

Through Very

So many people grew up in the church, and you can have an awesome upbringing, but I made a personal conviction; I made a personal decision when I was very young.

- AJ Michalka

Goodwill Cut

Career Dad

Early in my career, I got roles that demanded that I be fit to carry off the angry young man look. Of course, I'm a fitness freak, and that's something I picked up from my dad.

- Al Kaline

Deal Here

It hurt me a great deal. It put a lot of pressure on me because I was at a young age and the writers around here and throughout the league starting comparing me to Cobb. It put a lot of pressure on me.

- Al Kaline

Myself Like

Like myself, President Obama is the father of two daughters. He understands the obstacles that they face as women, but he also understands the emergency of the state of young black men in America.

Tell Give

I tell all the rookies that come into our series and all the young drivers they can come ask me anything at any time, and we'll give them the straight shoot.

Awards can give you a tremendous amount of encouragement to keep getting better, no matter how young or old you are.

It's a funny feeling to work with people who you consider your colleagues and to realize that they actually are young enough to be your children.

- Alan Alda

Love Die

I used to not want to die in any way but in my sleep when I was a young man. I'd like to die awake now, if possible, with people around me who love me.

- Alan Alda

Death Immortality

It's hard for me to get interested in stories that ignore death, which is what American marketing culture would like to do: pretend that death doesn't exist, that you can buy immortality; just buy these products, and you'll be forever young and happy.

- Alan Ball

Year Straightforward

The premise of 'Descent' may sound pretty straightforward: One summer morning while vacationing with her family in the foothills of the Rockies, a young girl, a high-school athlete in her senior year, goes out for a run in the higher altitudes - and disappears.

- Alan Cheuse

Own Deceptive

From sublime affairs of state to the stark and vulgar popular culture of our own contemporary lives, let's make this descent into the lower registers together and recognize the good, nasty fun of 'Gone Girl,' Chicago writer Gillian Flynn's novel about the mysterious disappearance of a clever and deceptive young Midwestern housewife.

- Alan Cheuse

Role Psychological

The Israeli military plays more than a critical role in defending the citizens of the Jewish state. It also plays an important social, scientific and psychological role in preparing its young citizens for the challenging task of being Israelis in a difficult world.

- Alan Dershowitz

Insurance Broke

I started out when I was 29 - too young to write novels. I was broke. I was on unemployment insurance. I was supposed to be writing a Ph.D. dissertation, so I had a typewriter and a lot of paper.

- Alan Furst

Like Could

I grew up with nothing, so whenever I got to where I could have something I felt like I needed to have everything I couldn't have when I was young.

- Alan Jackson

Town Any

Hee Haw was probably my biggest exposure to live music at a young age, because there wasn't any live music around my town and no one in my family played instruments.

- Alan Jackson

Like Which

I don't like this young crudeness now which is supposed to be comedy on Friday nights.

- Alan Sugar

Fulfill Modern Music

That's what so sad about a lot of modern music, in my opinion, so many young bands never stay around long enough to fulfill their ultimate promise. They only get halfway there or a quarter of the way there.

- Alan Vega

Education Study

Young people don't really study the facts; they watch the skewed MSNBC and get a primarily liberal education.

- Alana Stewart

Save Turned

Canada has a passive-aggressive culture, with a lot of sarcasm and righteousness. That went with my weird messianic complex. The ego is a fascinating monster. I was taught from a young age that I had to serve, so that turned into me thinking I had to save the planet.

- Alanis Morissette

I Think Abuse

I think it's child abuse to have someone in the public eye too young. Society basically values wealth and fame and power at the cost of well-being. In the case of a child, it's at the cost of someone's natural development. It's already hard enough to develop.

- Alanis Morissette

Planet Turned

I was taught from a young age that I had to serve, so that turned into me thinking I had to save the planet.

- Alanis Morissette

Father Though

My roots were in acting. That's all I wanted to be. Even though my father was a radio comedian, it wasn't cool to say, at a young age, 'I want to be a comedian.'

- Albert Brooks

Potatoes Very

My father, who was a hair colourist, died when I was young, so my mother had to work very hard. But at the same time, I do believe that if you have everything, it is easy to make a dinner. When you only have flour and water and olives and potatoes, you have to be much more creative, and that's what my mother is all about.

- Alber Elbaz

Some Anorexic

We are being accused that some models are anorexic. But we as fashion designers cannot be blamed, because you know, when I talk to women around the world, rich and poor and young and old and intellectual and not, what they want to be is skinny. You ask them, 'What is your dream?' It's to be skinny. That's all they want.

- Alber Elbaz

Father Though

Even though my father was a radio comedian, it wasn't cool to say, at a young age, 'I want to be a comedian.'

- Albert Brooks

More Mature

Solitude is painful when one is young, but delightful when one is more mature.

- Albert Einstein
