Money Itself

Facebook can spend and talk endlessly to defend itself so long as it keeps printing money.

- Adam Lashinsky

Nation Sportsmen

Historically, China is not a nation of sportsmen. We traditionally put more emphasis on being close to nature than pushing endlessly to excel. A philosophy that values tranquil contemplation of the landscape cannot easily be adapted to the Olympic slogan of 'higher, stronger, faster.'

- Ai Weiwei

Good Microsoft

What Microsoft is really good at is endlessly iterating and revving - incrementally improving things that already exist - and those things that already exist are generally acquired from the outside.

- Alan Cooper

It's possible to be hard-boiled and not noir, just as it's possible to be noir and not hard-boiled. And it is possible to be both. People debate endlessly what is hard-boiled and what is noir.

I admire Elliott Carter endlessly. But I have no ambitions to emulate him.

Change My Life

I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me.

Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.

- Arnold Palmer

Golf Complicated

Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated.

- Arnold Palmer

The theater is so endlessly fascinating because it's so accidental. It's so much like life.

- Arthur Miller

Love I Think

- Christopher McCandless

Father Directors

My father always told me that story was first and foremost. We would watch not just his films but a lot of classic American films. My father was a great David Lean fan, and David Lean's one of my favorite directors. We would discuss films endlessly.

- Christopher Rouse

Love City

The thing I love about Rome is that is has so many layers. In it, you can follow anything that interests you: town planning, architecture, churches or culture. It's a city rich in antiquity and early Christian treasures, and just endlessly fascinating. There's nowhere else like it.

- Claire Tomalin

Some Fathers

The Founding Fathers worried that 'some common impulse of passion' might lead many to subvert the rights of the few. It's a rational fear, one that is played out endlessly.

Art Forward

In music, they're not endlessly rewriting Beethoven's 'Third Symphony;' in visual art, they aren't painting portraits of 16th-century royalty. Art moves forward.

- David Shields

Romance Very

First and foremost, I consider myself a storyteller. And I'm endlessly fascinated with people, with what they do and why... and how they feel about it. Which means I'm interested in romance fiction. I was drawn to it, as both a reader and a writer, at the very beginning of my career. It's my kind of storytelling.

- Debbie Macomber

Fact Rather

I find it endlessly interesting, endlessly funny, the fact that we're rather arbitrarily divided up into these discrete humans and that your physical self, your physical attributes, your moment of history and the place where you were born determine who you are as much as all that indefinable stuff that's inside of you.

- Deborah Eisenberg

Leader Couple

I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn't. Hey, it made me a better leader: you have to take a lot of people's needs into account; you have to look down the road. Trying to negotiate getting a couple of kids to watch the same TV show requires serious diplomacy.

- Dee Dee Myers

Die Play

More fundamentally, it is a dream that does not die with the onset of manhood: the dream is to play endlessly, past the time when you are called home for dinner, past the time of doing chores, past the time when your body betrays you past time itself.

Contemporary Britain seems an endlessly fascinating place to me - but if I knew a little bit more about other places, and other times, maybe it wouldn't.

- Jonathan Coe

Young Least

I'm of Neil Young's generation. Neil Young's songs have spoken to what it's like to be at least a white male of his generation over the years. Endlessly, he's sung about the stuff that I really care about. He's put into words the feelings that hit you at different transitional moments in life.

- Jonathan Demme

New Bring

Poems are endlessly renewable resources. Whatever you bring to them, at whatever stage of life, gets mirrored back, refracted, reread in new ways.

- Jonathan Galassi

Fiction Readers

I feel that there is not an endlessly expandable universe of fiction readers.

- Jonathan Galassi

Fellow Man

Writers are socially observant. We find people endlessly fascinating, and real life is mysterious. Sometimes it's hard to stop staring at the strut and squawk of my fellow man. They can be quite inspiring. Sometimes it's hard to stop talking to them to see what in the world they're thinking.

- Julianna Baggott


As a novelist, I'm endlessly fascinated by human behavior and interactions.

- Juliet Marillier

I love sharing my story. It's endlessly healing.

Big Weeks

Book tours are really kind of fun.

- Bill Bryson

Planted Consumed

Think Beaten

- Dennis Christopher

Language Own

I do find the sibling connection endlessly fascinating, as I do all family dynamics. I like how siblings seem to create their own parentless mini-civilization within a family, one that has its own laws, myths, language, humor, its own loyalties and treacheries.

- Jandy Nelson

New Resonant

Singer About

I don't talk about Amy Winehouse as a 'singer.' She's a pioneer. I listened to her endlessly when I started writing.

- Laura Mvula

Aim About

'Posh' is not really political. I didn't want to aim a brickbat at the system. Or to bash Old Etonians. It was always the class and privilege aspect of that world that I was most drawn to. There is something endlessly fascinating about imagining something you could never be involved in.

- Laura Wade

Small Next

Rehab is endlessly repetitive. And it's never easy, because once you've mastered some movement or action or word, no matter how small, you move on to the next. You never rest.

- Gabrielle Giffords

House Stepfather

My mother endlessly told me I was too fat, that I wasn't a patch on my sister. It wasn't much fun growing up with her and her almost irrational social climbing in that huge house of my dull stepfather Hughdie Auchincloss in Washington.

- Lee Radziwill

Some Profession

Several of my favorite cousins and some of my best friends are lawyers, and I find the profession endlessly fascinating.

- Luanne Rice

Gift Records

I got this Christmas gift with the entire Beatles catalog. I had fun trying to duplicate what I was hearing on these records, only using the instruments I had at hand - an acoustic guitar, and that's all. It was endlessly amusing to me to try to imitate John Lennon and Paul McCartney's harmonies using the guitar.

- M. Ward


I really enjoy writing about female friendship. It's an endlessly interesting dynamic for me.

I want to work endlessly and tirelessly until I'm an old, old lady.

- Ginnifer Goodwin

Own Imposed

An elite class that is free to operate without limits - whether limits imposed by the rule of law or fear of the responses from those harmed by their behavior - is an elite class that will plunder, degrade, and cheat at will, and act endlessly to fortify its own power.

- Glenn Greenwald

Love About

Human character is just endlessly fascinating, and there is no character who is one thing any more than any one person is just one thing. As you work on a character, he/she is revealed more and more. That's what I continue to love about the work.

- Sada Thompson

Years I Remember

Theatre requires devotion that is all-consuming. When we started out, we didn't mind working 12 hours a day. We didn't mind going endlessly over and over a scene to make it right. I was the company's costumer for the first few years, and I remember the budget for 'Balm in Gilead' was $150.

- Glenne Headly

See Over

I can't see myself just endlessly singing the same songs over and over again.

Babies are endlessly fascinating to look at and I'm obsessed about their complete and utter lack of guile.

- Minnie Driver

Nation Villains

I refer, of course, to the debts our nation has amassed for itself over decades of indulgence. It is the new Red Menace, this time consisting of ink. We can debate its origins endlessly and search for villains on ideological grounds, but the reality is pure arithmetic.

- Mitch Daniels

Away Tell

As I continue to write as M. O'Keefe, I find myself following darker story lines. Plots I might have flinched away from I now rush toward. Using sex as a tool to tell women's stories is endlessly fascinating.

- Molly O'Keefe

Studio Other

Most dancers are less eccentric than driven. It starts young. When other kids are at the playground, we're in the studio, endlessly drilling jumps and adjusting our socks.

- Sascha Radetsky

Think I Think

Those who speak of our culture as dead or dying have a quarrel with life, and I think they cannot understand its terms, but must endlessly repeat the projection of their own desires.

- Muriel Rukeyser

Through Been

Since the Renaissance, a concept called 'progress' has been baked into our society. Progress - founded on an accumulation of knowledge through experience (and in the case of science, through experiment). To build on the past rather than endlessly relive it. That's what separates us from the beasts.

- Seth Shostak

Behind Ashamed

Every abstract picture of the world is as impossible as a blueprint of a storm. Don't be ashamed because you're human: be proud! Inside you, vaults behind vaults open endlessly. You will never be finished, and that's as it should be.

- Tomas Transtromer

Everyone Marxism

I was born in 1948, so I'm a '60s kid, and in the '60s everyone talked all the time, endlessly, about socialism versus capitalism, about political choices, ideology, Marxism, revolution, 'the system' and so on.

- Tony Judt

Field Permitted

By fighting a limited, defensive war, America permitted the enemy to endlessly re-supply their field armies.

Patient Someone

I'm not someone who's endlessly patient and wonderful.

- Nigella Lawson

Some Income

Rich people are so eccentric, and I don't think people really realize. Especially by the turn of the century, they were living like rappers, and there was no income tax. They are some of the most fascinating people, and I am endlessly fascinated.

- Riki Lindhome

Marriage Wife

I'm endlessly fascinated by parenting, marriage, my wife and the ins and outs of marriage.

- Rob Delaney

Hidden Held

It's just that if you're not disruptive everything seems to be repeated endlessly - not so much the good things but the bland things - the ordinary things - the weaker things get repeated- the stronger things get suppressed and held down and hidden.

- Robert Adamson

Love Formal

Form is endlessly interesting to me, and I love poetry as a formal enterprise.

- Mary Szybist

Infamous Been

The Bay of Pigs is one of America's most infamous Cold War blunders, and it has been studied, debated, and dramatized endlessly ever since.

- Robert Dallek

Start True Story

Truth is quite constricting, in a way. You endlessly see at the start of a film 'This is a true story'.

- Stephen Frears

Truth Caught

Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.

- Stephen King

Work Ways

I'm endlessly fascinated with the ways families work and the ways they don't.

- Steve James

Come Other

It was endlessly entertaining, watching people beat each other up. All the little kids in the neighborhood would come and watch... and then we'd beat them up as well.

- Wayne Coyne

Through About

What's endlessly complicated in thinking about women's gymnastics is the way that vulnerability and power are threaded through the sport.

- Meghan O'Rourke

Flavors Means

It is important to experiment and endlessly seek after creating the best possible flavors when preparing foods. That means not being afraid to experiment with various ingredients.

- Rocco DiSpirito

Think New

Do we change every time we have a new encounter? Are we endlessly mutable? I think these are fascinating questions: it's a rich vein to tap, and I don't think I have exhausted it fully yet.

- William Boyd

Caught Very

Theology is endlessly interesting in that you can study it without believing in anything. I do believe, but you don't have to. I got very caught up in the 11th-century monasticism and the Cistercians. My dissertation was about Aelred of Rievaulx and one of his books.

- Susan Hill

Impact Families

Families are endlessly fascinating. We all have one, and they have a great impact on who we are and what we do - Freudian as that is.

- Susan Minot

Upset Other

Maybe we ought to consider a Golden Rule in foreign policy: Don't do to other nations what we don't want happening to us. We endlessly bomb these countries and then we wonder why they get upset with us?

- Ron Paul

Bright Lights

You get to about 65 or 70 and you lose friends and the world does seem to be an endlessly difficult place and tragic place, so it's more and more difficult for me to find the bright lights.

- Michael Morpurgo

Predators Fables

We do not just fear our predators, we are transfixed by them. We are prone to weave stories and fables and chat endlessly about them.

- Peter Benchley

Think View

I think narcissists are endlessly watchable. The way they view the world and the way they interact within the world.

- Michael Showalter

Love Very

I am endlessly inspired by both the tenderness that can exist between two people and the excitement of falling in love. I'm very fortunate that I've been able to explore that in novels, a television show, some early development film projects, and essays about my own life.

- Taylor Jenkins Reid
