Bands Lot

We didn't realize there were that many boy bands until we started touring in Europe. I don't think we were ever affected by it since a lot of the groups in Europe didn't really sing live, but we did and would perform a cappella as well.

- A. J. McLean

Without Jewish

With my childhood, it's a wonder I'm not psychotic. I was the little Jewish boy in the non-Jewish neighborhood. It was a little like being the first Negro enrolled in the all-white school. I grew up in libraries and among books, without friends.

- Abraham Maslow

Charley Our

Twenty years ago I wanted to move to a nice place so our Charley would grow up a nice boy and learn a profession. But instead we live in a jungle, so he can only be a wild animal. D'you think I picked the East Side like Columbus picked America?

May Any

In America any boy may become President, and I suppose it's just one of the risks he takes.

One of the things I say is, 'You want to know what it's like to be a baby? It's like being in love for the first time in Paris after four double espressos.' And boy, you are alive and conscious.

- Alison Gopnik

Fruit Big

I'm not a dieter. I have the palate of a 7-year-old boy, although I'm working on it. I order off the kids' menu! I'm working hard to eat more fruit and veggies and round it all out, but I'm a big pretzels and Diet Coke kind of girl.

- Allison Williams

People Feel

It turns out that popularity is scary. I don't feel comfortable receiving so much attention from people; perhaps that's because I'm just a kampong boy.

- Cyril Cusack

Lucky Been

I've been a lucky boy.

I started training for musicals since I was a boy.

Legend Anything

I'm interested in making films of all sizes. During this time I've made a film called 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas', which is a modest-sized film. I was involved in 'I Am Legend' and 'Yes, Man', but 'Potter' is unique. There'll never be anything like 'Potter' again.

- David Heyman

Three Hundred

When I started, there weren't any arenas. There was football fields, but they would only hold three or four or five hundred people at the most... We played a lot of high school auditoriums and things like that - a lot of churches... but boy, it has changed.

- Jim Ed Brown

Best Electrician

Any actor working a long time should know how a shot is set up, where to place themselves, how to handle the lines. I'm a member of the crew, like the best boy, the electrician. What I'm good at is making eyes at the camera.

- Jodie Foster

Amazing Poster

I'm the poster boy for Propecia. It's amazing.

Take Midwest

You can take the boy out of the Midwest, but you can't take the Midwest out of the boy.

- Joe Lando

Idea Your

You have no idea how humiliating it was, as a boy, to suddenly have all your clothes, your toys, snatched by the bailiff. I mean we were a middle-class family, it's not as if it was happening up and down the street. It made me ashamed, I felt dirty.

- John le Carre

Idols James

James Taylor may be an all-American boy but he isn't Horatio Alger, and the lionizing of many rock stars by the rock press has as much to do with old fashioned rags-to-riches stories as does the straight culture's deification of its idols.

- Jon Landau

Focus Counts

Expand the definition of 'reading' to include non-fiction, humor, graphic novels, magazines, action adventure, and, yes, even websites. It's the pleasure of reading that counts; the focus will naturally broaden. A boy won't read shark books forever.

- Jon Scieszka

Own Suddenly

I was the boy who liked to sing his own songs at talent shows, and I was suddenly officially uncool.

- Josh Groban

Best Anymore

'Alexander, Who's Trying His Best to Be the Best Boy Ever' was inspired by a combination of my grandson, my son, and myself - all those times when each of us has decided that we're just not going to get into trouble anymore. But it's so hard to be good all of the time!

- Judith Viorst

Worry About

I'm not a toy boy, bellybutton band, so I don't have to worry about that. Actually, I never did.

- Juice Newton

Nerdy Used

The kind of boy's club I'm used to? It is definitely not a jock-y, frat-y kind of thing. They say, 'I'm sensitive and nerdy,' but actually, it's like, 'You're a huge child and you're terrified of women, but you don't like sports, so you think that makes you less of a misogynist.'

- Julie Klausner


I'm a lapsed altar boy.

- Guillermo del Toro

Membership Rightfully

I catch myself judging myself as that 13-year-old boy, who, of course, rightfully points out that he is only a child. And my membership - well, I was drafted into the Waffen-SS and didn't exactly volunteer, which was just as idiotic. I wanted to be on the submarines and then ended up with the Waffen-SS.

- Gunter Grass

Tough Longer

When you are no longer a boy, you have to be tough.

- Bernard Lagat

Changing About

I don't see I'll ever arrive at the point where I'll say, 'Lance old boy, you've arrived at success.' There's no question about it. Once you get to the point where you've arrived at a station called success, you get complacent and lethargic. Those goals you set keep changing. But it's not a ruthless sort of thing.

- Bert Lance

Having Just

I'm an 18-year-old boy, and I'm having fun. I'm just not having as much fun as people make out.

America. Shoutout to the men in uniform that protect and serve this country. From sea to shining sea. From one white boy, to all nationalities, we've got to stand together, people.

Call Am

When I was a little boy, they called me a liar, but now that I am grown up, they call me a writer.

- Isaac Bashevis Singer

I Think Over It

I think Eggs looks great, with his mucky face with dirt all over it and greasy hair. He's the ideal boy Boxtroll, really. It's quite difficult to capture a boy who's grown up as a Boxtroll. So, he looks good.

- Isaac Hempstead Wright

Love Him

God love Neil Patrick Harris - how great is that. People grew up with him; they go, 'Oh it's him, it's that little boy and he just happens to be gay. How great for him!' The more of those kind of examples that happen, the better it's going to be.

- Bryan Batt

Knew Neighbours

When I was a boy, the neighbours all knew who I was because I'd take a ball with me everywhere I went.

- Isco

Growing Tell

You want to know what makes me tick, I'll tell you what makes me tick. I was a boy growing up in Brooklyn; I read a two-penny magazine called 'The Hawk's Nest.' Nobody entered that nest that didn't leave a little richer and a little wiser. And that 11-year-old boy said, 'Isn't that a wonderful thing.' And that's all there is to it.

- Buddy Hackett

Texas Well

Well, I'm a Texas boy, and we have denim in our blood.

- Caleb Landry Jones

Air Tell

Boy, I'll tell you, when the Rams drafted me No. 1, it surprised me. I was walking on air for days.

- Jack Youngblood

Dress Down

A lot of female comedians will go up there in a sweatshirt and Converses, trying to dress themselves down, because it is sort of a boy's club. I'll go up in my heels. I like that people don't think I'll be funny. I'll take that on. I don't do standup comedy - I do standup and I do comedy, but I don't go up there and do jokes.

- Carly Craig

Movies Sound

When I was a little boy, there was no sound in the movies.

- Carmine Coppola

Which Browns

I lived in Cleveland for a summer when I was 12, and I was a ball boy for the Browns, which few people know.

Youth Used

A man is never completely alone in this world. At the worst, he has the company of a boy, a youth, and by and by a grown man - the one he used to be.

- Cesare Pavese

Play Through

In the early '90s, I wrote a play called 'Word of Mouth' in which I played a number of different characters. One was a thirteen-year-old boy who, through a series of diary entries, realizes that he's gay.

- James Lecesne

Had Part

Boy, if Garth Ennis had created a religion, I would sure like to be a part of that. It just makes sense, the way he tackles things in it. It's really heavy stuff and it's incredibly well written.

- James Marsden

School Singing

I was the singing boy in school.

- Desiigner

Talking Hindsight

I was 13 years old at music school talking to my teacher. I can't quite remember what it was I was trying to describe, but I do remember my music teacher saying to me, 'Do you have synesthesia?' In hindsight, it seems a little presumptuous of her to think a little boy in Essex would know what synesthesia was.

- Dev Hynes

Country Country Boy

I'm a country boy. I'm from Georgia.

- Jason Aldean

Young I Remember

I remember seeing the Colosseum for the first time when I was a young boy. It left a lasting impression on me.

- Drake Milligan

Career Go

I wanted to have a go at a pop career. My first single, 'Baby I Don't Care', was a hit, and the second, 'Bye Bye Boy', reached the Top 20.

- Jennifer Ellison

Still Asthma

I'm still a farm boy at heart. If I hadn't suffered from asthma as a child, I would be a farmer today.

- Jim Davis

I Think I See

I really - I don't take my work that seriously, and I think that's what keeps me loose. If I try to write, if I catch myself trying to write, I'll fall right on my face. I'll see it. If I see in the prose that I'm - 'Boy, look at me writing,' I rewrite it. I rewrite it because I don't, because I think it's distracting.

- Elmore Leonard

Like Slogan

I don't really like the slogan 'It boy.'

- Emile Hirsch

Love Some

I'm such an L.A. boy, I love hanging out by the beach and throwing some steaks on the grill.

- Eric Balfour

About Out

With the 'Silly Boy' track, I mean, people knew about it, but it wasn't really like, 'oh that's Eva Simons.' But when 'Take Over Control' came out, that's when people started to get interested in me personally, which is great because it was something I really believed in.

- Eva Simons

Things Also

I was a regular little boy who also enjoyed things that girls did.

- Kevyn Aucoin

Jazz Notion

There's nothing to be gained, and much to be lost, in trying to bend every child to match a one-size-fits-all notion of what it means to be a boy or girl of a specific age. Better to set a few parameters and then go with the flow. Call it 'jazz parenting.'

- Ezekiel Emanuel

Think I Think

I once said to a boy, 'You're a really good kisser,' and he said, 'You're only as good as the person you're kissing.' I think it's the same with the music.

I'm still a mummy's boy!

Vegas Been

I've been in Vegas. That's where you get into the money thing. Boy, you get greedy in Vegas, you know. That's the only place that you can bet $25, get it up to $500 and refuse to quit.

- Louie Anderson

Like Very

I was very thin, like a boy, and I was very un-sexy.

- Luise Rainer

Bad Purely

I wanted to do pretty much a purely boy story, yes. The girls are kind of the bad guys in 'Marble Season', although that wasn't my intention. It's also a world without adults.

- Gilbert Hernandez

Thirty Years

I was a thirteen-year-old boy for thirty years.

- Mickey Rooney

Father Die

I've read and traveled a lot in the Middle East, and I built on eyewitness accounts of horrific executions that would shape a boy's character and beliefs if he watched his father die that way. These are the stuff of which nightmares are made.

- Terry Hayes

Eventually Imagined

I eventually just imagined being a little boy who was quote unquote 'normal': who could learn like all the kids around me that I felt excluded from. And I imagined myself into one of these and into someone who could read.

- Philip Schultz

Life My Life

Stasis is something that has marked my life since I was a boy growing up in Pittsburgh with my mother. It was the natural state that we existed in. For one thing, she suffered from a debilitating depression throughout my childhood, and depression is nothing if not static.

- Said Sayrafiezadeh

Kid Ridiculously

The stakes in my books tend to be kind of ridiculously high. In 'Kid vs. Squid,' the question is whether or not the California coast will be subsumed by the ocean in favor of the creation of a new Atlantis. In 'The Boy at the End of the World,' what's at stake is the survival of the human species.

- Greg van Eekhout

Best Tops

When I was in primary school, my best friend was a boy and we always goofed around, climbed trees, got holes in my trousers and muddied all my tops and things like that; a complete nightmare for the washing, but great fun.

- Maisie Williams

Girl Why

Islam tells us every girl and boy should be educated. I don't know why the Taliban have forgotten it.

- Malala Yousafzai

Fashion Designer About

No one ever said 'no' to me about anything. No one ever told me anything was wrong. Never. No one ever said, 'You can't be a fashion designer.' No one ever said, 'You're a boy and you can't take tap-dancing lessons.' No one ever said, 'You're a boy and you can't have long hair.'

- Marc Jacobs

Bit Mummy

I'm a bit of a mummy's boy.

- Tinie Tempah

Mature None

If you look at movies with Cary Grant or Jimmy Stewart and all the rest of it, none of them looks like a boy. They always looked like mature men. The audience didn't want to go and see kids.

- Tom Conti

Best Also

There was a boy in my building who was my best friend when I was growing up. There was also a mysterious person on my corner who we called the Laughing Man.

- Rebecca Stead

Hope Doing

Boy, I'm just quietly doing my thing, and I hope they'll look around and get my record out.

- Marian McPartland

India Office

Now in India, a village boy who has worked his way up to work at a call center, or if he gets a job working even as a busboy in a Taj or an Oberoi hotel, he'll put on his wedding announcement with pride, 'Busboy at the Taj' or 'Call center, Office Tiger.'

Thought Could

Marijuana. Boy, I thought that was just terrible. How could this great man do this to his life?

- Tommy Rettig

Mama Above

Mummy Proper

I'm a proper mummy's boy.

- Shayne Ward

Keys About

I have a 15-year-old boy, and we are about to give him car keys, which seems like an act of insanity when you know what you know about 15-year-old boy behavior. But in 2018, we'll have self-driving cars, and it will be so much better. My son may be the last generation of kids who learns to drive.

- Nick Hanauer

Point Delivery

I was a delivery boy at one point.

- Mark Pontius


I'm a mama's boy.

- Tyler Hoechlin

Love Bond

Children love their mothers. Especially with a boy child and his mother, there's a bond that's unbreakable.

- Tyler Perry

Sun Our

When I was a boy, the Sioux owned the world. The sun rose and set on their land; they sent ten thousand men to battle. Where are the warriors today? Who slew them? Where are our lands? Who owns them?

- Sitting Bull

Kenny Knicks

I was a Knicks fan of the Kenny Sears-Carl Braun-Jim Baechtold vintage. I was even their ball boy when I was a teenager.

- Marv Albert

Office Dodgers

In 1957, I was a 16-year-old office boy for the Dodgers.

- Marv Albert

Timing Makes

My little boy Sonny makes me laugh all the time. He has good comedic timing.
