I see potential in everything. It's about opening your mind to what you can do to the garment: because they're cheap, you can cut them or stitch them, and if you stuff it up, it's fine - it's only two dollars.

- Abbey Lee Kershaw

Been About

Honestly speaking, I don't like my films. When I watch them, I see a lot of scope for improvement, so if I were to see any of my films, like 'Dhoom,' I might say... 'It would have been better if...' or 'had it been...' and this is all about evolving.

- Abhishek Bachchan

I Think Edward

- Alain de Botton

Very Some

Riding Away

When I see a room full of people pedaling away on stationary bikes, I fall into an existential spiral. It's confirmation that all we do as humans is pedal, pedal, pedal, and go nowhere. We're just specks of dust in the universe, riding 1970s stationary bicycles.

- Ali Liebegott

Love Sentences

I've got to hear the rhythm of the sentences; I want the music of the prose. I want to see ordinary things transformed not by the circumstances in which I see them but by the language with which they're described. That's what I love when I read.

- Alice McDermott

Honor Look

Wherever I look, I see signs of the commandment to honor one's parents and nowhere of a commandment that calls for the respect of a child.

- Alice Miller

Experience Feel

I no longer feel attracted to the well-made novel. I want to write the story that will zero in and give you intense, but not connected, moments of experience. I guess that's the way I see life. People remake themselves bit by bit and do things they don't understand.

My Life Very

I see what happens when one gets very attached to material things. That's just not what my life is.

- Amber Tamblyn

Illusion Fascinated

I see a sense of unity in the universe. Spirituality is not limited to only one religion. One can experience it across different religions. I am fascinated by philosophy of Advaita and philosophy of unity. We have to get over the illusion that God is different from us.

- Amish Tripathi

Love My Life

I see my upbringing as a great success story. By disciplining me, my parents inculcated self-discipline. And by restricting my choices as a child, they gave me so many choices in my life as an adult. Because of what they did then, I get to do the work I love now.

- Amy Chua

Best Crazy Things

The best days I have are usually days where I'm out in the woods and something happens, like I see an amazing animal like a fox, or I get a glimpse of a wild pig or something that I never see. Or crazy things happen.

My childhood memories are amazing; I had freedom in every way - but I see everything from a different perspective now that I live outside.

Sometimes Tickets

I see sometimes how guys may make a buffoon of themselves to sell a few more tickets. They create this image, and when it's all said and done, it's like everything falls out from under them. They have no stability. I never wanted to be one of those guys.

- Andre Ward

Australia Point

In Australia, we point out a person's weaknesses as a way of saying 'I see you and I accept you'. If you do that with Americans, they instantly take offence.

Sick Want

When a friend is sick, I see the situation for what it is, not what it isn't, and I offer to help as much as she wants, not as much as I want.

- Andrew J. Bernstein

Fiction Internal

What I see as the particularly exciting prospect for writing horror fiction as we go forward is setting stories in more internal landscapes than external ones, mapping out the mind as the home for scary things instead of the house at the end of the lane or lakeside campground or abandoned amusement park.

- Andrew Pyper

Everyone Participate

Feminism is not only for women It's something everyone can participate in, and evolve together, as the first step in the right direction. I see feminism as a tool to achieve that balance and peace.

I Think Admire

When I look at women, older than I am, in their 50s, 60, 70s, 80s, and I see women that I admire, I think, 'Oh, I get it; that's how I'm going to be.' I'm not scared. I want to be that.

- Annette Bening

Own Primal

When I watch my kids, and I see the primal level at which the sibling relationships are formed, then I completely understand what these unresolved adult sibling problems are based on. You know, 'Mom liked you better' and, 'You got your own room and I didn't.'

See Take

When I take a picture I take 10 percent of what I see.

- Annie Leibovitz

Myself See

I see myself as a traveller.

Why Through

People who look for the first time through a microscope say, 'Now I see this, and then I see that,' and even a skilled observer can be fooled. On these observations I have spent more time than many will believe, but I have done them with joy, and I have taken no notice of those who have said, 'Why take so much trouble,' and, 'What good is it?'

- Antonie van Leeuwenhoek

Matter Fiction

I just read the scripts that come to me, and I see the ones which I really kind of understand and connect with, whether that's a science fiction or a period piece. It doesn't really matter as long as they're original and I have something to do with the character.

- Asa Butterfield

Thinking Certain Way

I have a certain way of thinking where I see something, and I know that I want it and I make up my mind - and that's pretty much all there is to it. It was like, This is what I want to do, and I'm going, and everything's going to work out. I'm going to be an actress. There was no way around it.

- Ashley Greene

Industry Similar

The film industry brings people together, and so does technology. I see them as similar platforms.

- Ashton Kutcher

Celebrity Feel

I see too many celebrity kids who can't sing. If you don't have it, give it up, because people are brutal. I never want my kids to feel like they have to live up to what I've done.

- Charles Kelley

Believe See

The way I see it, it doesn't matter what you believe just so you're sincere.

Offended Like

I am never offended when I see the drag-queens dressed up like me.

- Cher

Play Maybe

Every time I see a musician - it doesn't matter what age - that inspires me, there's always a secret little wish that maybe we'll play together, because that's how I learn and grow and so forth, you know. But hopefully there's a lot more.

City Think

Every time I drive into Rio from the airport, I see the city for the first time and think how strange it is.

I'm practical. I see something, and I do it.

- China Machado

Maintain Bit

The point is that when I see a sunset or a waterfall or something, for a split second it's so great, because for a little bit I'm out of my brain, and it's got nothing to do with me. I'm not trying to figure it out, you know what I mean? And I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness.

- Chris Evans

Questions Asking

At first, I see pictures of a story in my mind. Then creating the story comes from asking questions of myself. I guess you might call it the 'what if - what then' approach to writing and illustration.

- Chris Van Allsburg

See Things

I'm sensitive to the things I see.

- Chris Van Allsburg

Art Another

Painting is the most magical of mediums. The transcendence is truly amazing to me every time I go to a museum and I see how somebody figured another way to rub colored dirt on a flat surface and make space where there is no space or make you think of a life experience.

- Chuck Close

Reason Through

I believe strongly in 'giving while living.' I see little reason to delay giving when so much good can be achieved through supporting worthwhile causes today. Besides, it's a lot more fun to give while you live than to give while you are dead.

- Chuck Feeney

Part Before

The crew are the faces you see every morning and last at night before you go home. I spend more time with those people than I do with my friends and family, so they're forever a part of you and who you become as an actor so I hope I see them again.

- Claudia Black

Heels Wearing

I'm amazed when I see mothers wearing high heels. If your kids run off you can't run after them.

- Claudia Schiffer

Mirror Game

When I see myself in the videogame it's amazing how realistic I look. This is the most authentic and realistic soccer game I have ever seen. It is like I'm looking in a mirror. The attention to detail is incredible.

- Claudio Reyna

Tell Like

When I see a story, I ask: is this something I'd like to be in? Is this something I'd like to see? And if I'd like to see it, would I like to tell it?

- Clint Eastwood

My Life Bad

All my life, I've had these flashbacks, these dreams, nightmares, daymares, like visions, where I relive certain plays. Only the bad plays. I see them over and over, as if somebody's rewinding a tape and forcing me to watch.

- Colin Kaepernick

Like Challenging

If I see something that's extremely challenging, I'm like, 'That seems really hard. Let's try it.' It's just my personality.

- Condola Rashad

Straight Man Profess

Above these universal themes 'Truth Will Set U Free' is also a song composed for those who were born gay. I am a straight man so I do not profess to understand or know what a LGBT person experiences but I do recognize injustice when I see it.

- Corey Hart

Education Country

Education to me is the most important thing that we've got going in this country. I mean, a lot of my family are teachers. I was the recipient of a great public education, and I see that's one of the first things that we're going to go, 'What are we going to raise?' The ignorant masses.

- Craig T. Nelson

Everyone About

Someone once said about me that I talk to everyone the same, no matter what age they are. I don't see kids and adults. I see everyone the same.

- Dakota Fanning

Dancing Miss

If I see somebody dancing really well, it can make me want to dance. Or it could be the music. But perhaps the thing I miss the most is that when you're dancing, everyday concerns vanish. It's a unique world.

- Damian Woetzel

Cry Kind

I'm the kind of person that if I see someone else crying, I cry too. I take on that emotion.

- Dana Davis

Roads Might

On the roads, it is one of those 'might is right' situations. If I see cars coming, I duck out of the way.

- Dane Bird-Smith

Bad Bad Guy

When I watch myself, I see nothing but faults, like, 'This I need to do different, this I need to do different,' and so if there comes a point in time where I'm like, 'Man, this whole thing is just getting really stale,' I am not opposed to being the bad guy again.

- Daniel Bryan

Craft Very

Prime Minister, I see you've already mastered the essential craft of the European politician, namely, the ability to say one thing in this chamber and a very different thing to your home electorate.

- Daniel Hannan

Numbers Maths

When I multiply numbers together, I see two shapes. The image starts to change and evolve, and a third shape emerges. That's the answer. It's mental imagery. It's like maths without having to think.

- Daniel Tammet

My Life About

What I'm having is this conflict in my life right now, that in New York, I see my directing friends and I see acting friends and they've all got this level of passion about either or both of those directions that I've never really found myself having.

- Danny Pintauro

Ideology Part

Although, this is often used with negative connotations, I see ideology as an inherent part of culture.

- Dario Fo

Musicians I Think

I think my biggest musical hero growing up was probably Ian MacKaye. He set a great example for all of us local musicians. Still, to this day, I see him as the best example of a right-on musician.

- Dave Grohl

Balloons Guy

When I see someone interesting on the subway - the lady with her new Bible or the delivery guy holding down a dozen Mylar balloons - my mind goes in two different directions. Where are they coming from? And where are they going?

- David Ebershoff

Over Reader

The reader becomes God, for all textual purposes. I see your eyes glazing over, so I'll hush.

- David Foster Wallace

Next Show

Races always are good to show where you are reaching in your training as well as to keep you sharpened. Every race, in my program, I put it in a special way like a ladder, climbing up slowly and slowly to the next one. I see where my training is, and that is like a test.

- David Rudisha

About Bill Clinton

I cannot conjure up an ounce of respect for Bill Clinton when it comes to the military. Every time I see him salute a Marine, it infuriates me. I don't think Bill Clinton cares one iota about what happens in a military unit.

- Jim Webb

See Times

That Moorish architecture is all over the place, of course. It affects me everywhere I see it, as it does so many people. But Brand Library was a special place to me, and I know I've paid homage to it many times in my drawings.

- Jim Woodring

Geniuses Pumped

There are geniuses, savants; I'm not one of them. I work hard, I see where popular culture's going to move, but I've gotta keep having information pumped into me. I look under every rock.

- Jimmy Iovine

See Else

Art is interesting because there can be so many different perspectives in a piece of art. The way I see it may be completely different than the way somebody else sees it. It's interesting to hear what somebody sees in a piece of art compared to somebody else. It could be completely different, and that's interesting to me.

- Joakim Noah

Down Give

If I see someone down, I'll try to give him a good laugh.

- Joe Cowley

Want Give

Respect is the word I want. You have to earn it. You give, and you get it in return, that's how I see it.

- Joe Torre

Being Atmosphere

I see the job of directing as being one of creating the right atmosphere, creating an environment where people can realize their full potential.

- Joe Wright

Hopeful Very

I'm cynical by nature, but I am also very hopeful because I see people from the Left and the Right showing up to these tea parties. You have people, bikers, union members and guys in three-piece suits showing up to these things.

- Joe Wurzelbacher

15 Minutes Had

I have a famous brother, and I see what his life's like. He can stay places 15 minutes, and then he's got to leave. So I've seen what it's like to be famous, and I haven't really aspired to be a huge mega-star - not that I've had that opportunity.

- Joel Murray

Mind Orchestration

Straight-away the ideas flow in upon me, directly from God, and not only do I see distinct themes in my mind's eye, but they are clothed in the right forms, harmonies, and orchestration.

- Johannes Brahms

Him Cox

Dr. Cox mentors the rookie doctors with a spoonful of dirt and then a cup of sugar. I see him as an archetypal descendent of two of my favorite curmudgeonly characters: Lou Grant and Louie De Palma.

- John C. McGinley

Out Fit

If you can figure out where you fit into any particular story, you'll be okay. When you're not quite sure where you fit in, you try to be too many parts of the story. You gild the lily. I see it all the time.

- John C. McGinley

Very Roman

To say Roman Reigns isn't connecting with an audience means you're not listening. I've watched a lot of Roman Reigns, and every single time I see him, I hear noise. He connects very well with our audience.

- John Cena

Process Individual

The process of receiving information for me is seeing, hearing, and feeling their energy in my frame of reference. That doesn't mean I see the individual, unfortunately.

- John Edward

Myself Words

Talking, talking. Spinning a web of words, pale walls of dreams, between myself and all I see.

- John Gardner

Artist New

I see the new Latin artist as a pioneer, opening up doors for others to follow. And when they don't open, we crowbar our way in.

- John Leguizamo
