Same Thing

Total Quotes : 359
Love Play

- Aaron Funk

Some Again

I'm constantly trying to find something that's different from me, whereas some actors do the same thing, again and again. That's not for me.

- Aaron Johnson

Father Very

By the grace of God, my parents were fantastic. We were a very normal family, and we have had a very middle-class Indian upbringing. We were never made to realise who we were or that my father and mother were huge stars - it was a very normal house, and I'd like my daughter to have the same thing.

- Abhishek Bachchan

Through Going

To confront those fears, in a controlled environment, where there's 300 people around you going through the same thing, it's this weird sort of yin and yang.

Pleasure Other

It's the same thing that drives people to want to experience sexual pleasure or have one too many drinks. We all want to experience the other, and to get out of our daily existence.

I Think Some

New Saturday

I did the same thing as every Irish person who comes to New York. I arrived on a Wednesday, and by Saturday night, I was pulling pints at a pub in the Bronx.

- Adrian McKinty

Bad Agent

Every publisher or agent I've ever met told me the same thing - that Irish readers don't want to read about the bad old days of the Troubles; neither do the English and Americans - they only want to read about the Ireland of The Quiet Man, when red-haired widows are riding bicycles and everyone else is on a horse.

- Adrian McKinty

Play Truck

When my boys were little, I'd throw so many toys at them, but they didn't want to play with any. Then I'd give them a truck, and they would play for hours. I believe the same thing applies to a consumer - edit their choices, and they will be more intrigued.

- Aerin Lauder

Doing Same

It gets tiring, doing the same thing everyday.

I Wish Maybe

My weaknesses... I wish I could come up with something. I'd probably have the same pause if you asked me what my strengths are. Maybe they're the same thing.

Thought Very

My father was very sick around the time I was born. The doctors thought he wouldn't live. He did recover, but I don't remember him as very active. I do remember lots of schtick around the dinner table. Generally, he and my brothers and I were all laughing at the same thing my mother did not find funny, whatever that was.

- Albert Brooks

Doing Same

I just looked like there was only one thing I could do: be in a band. It looked like I was already successful, basically. Which is what I wanted to do when I was 16. I just felt like if you did that, aesthetically you would just draw people who were doing the same thing.

- Albert Hammond, Jr.

Hero Died

The kids look at me, 'Ah, you're my hero.' I want to teach those kids. 'Hey listen, God is my hero. He died on the cross for my sins, and He's the one. That's how I wanna live - like Him - and I want you guys to do the same thing.

- Albert Pujols

Doing Deal

A new setting is amazing cause it's new for the team, and it's new for our characters. It's a breakaway from the normal deal. You get so tired, locked into a show for so many years. You get used to doing the same thing. A little shake-up and change is good.

- Aldis Hodge

Work Play

It's not the same thing to make a work - a film, a book, a play - about youth as it is to make one about old age.

Upset Vocal

When we're upset, our vocal cords tighten and we can't speak. And when I lie - well, I can't lie, because the same thing happens - everyone who knows me knows that when I start squeaking, I've started lying.

- Aleksandar Hemon

Doing Everybody

The designers usually don't like to say until we're on the runway. Like when I did Prada last year, I couldn't mention doing Prada or even Tweet or take a picture and put it on Twitter saying I was backstage at the Prada show. And Dolce was the same thing. They like to keep a little surprise, I guess, a little secret for everybody.

- Alessandra Ambrosio

Like Amount

Same thing, like my commercials are often times really funny because I tend to find 30 seconds is a really good amount of time to tell a joke.

- Alex Winter

Been Telling

Recently, my personal advisors have been telling me to go to America. Actually, people have been walking up to me in the street and telling me to sod off, but that's the same thing, isn't it?

Television Like

Television is like the American toaster, you push the button and the same thing pops up everytime.

Ants Everybody

We're all the same. We all want the same thing in life. Everybody going around like ants and we all want the same thing. And it's not one queen. It's not one queen with the wings.

Other Indie

What's cool about indie rock is that one band can do effectively the same thing as another band, and one band nails it, and the other one doesn't. I like that elusiveness.

- Andrew Bird

I Remember

I really believed Obama when he spoke in 2008, but I remember watching his victory speech after this last election and it was the same speech. Exactly the same speech. I felt like he didn't even believe it anymore. He seemed to be tired of saying the same thing.

- Andrew Dominik

Lunch Over

I used to have the same lunch every day, for 20 years, I guess, the same thing over and over again.

- Andy Warhol

Doing About

Same Related

Grit and self-control are related, but they're not the same thing.

Doing Year

I did tons of theater in school, and then when I was 16 and got my driver's license, I started driving to Los Angeles, along with my friend Eric Stoltz, who was a year ahead of me and was doing the same thing. So we had the same manager, and we started auditioning for things and doing commercials when we were 16.

- Anthony Edwards

Woman Year

We fully believed, so soon as we saw that woman's suffrage was right, every one would soon see the same thing, and that in a year or two, at farthest, it would be granted.

- Antoinette Brown Blackwell

Love Tell

The only advantage of the CD is that you have a booklet that can tell a bit of a story, but the little covers are just boring. I love vinyl, and I have loads of it. It's the same thing as digital photography versus film photography. It's a quality thing.

- Anton Corbijn

Always Been

I always have been and will remain someone who loves real, 3D, substantial books. And I don't believe that it's a wistful, nostalgic interest like vinyl collectors. It's not the same thing.

Saturday Some

There was some conflict there over Saturday nights because we were all really broke in those days- all the money you had in the world was in your pockets. Nowadays when you're say you're broke, it's not the same thing.

- Arto Lindsay

Other Follows

Much public thinking follows a rut. The same thing is true in science. People get stuck and don't look in other directions.

- Charles H. Townes

Voice Idea

The way Fatboy Slim layers motifs is the same as 18th-century baroque counterpoint. You have an idea, then you have an answer to the idea in another voice, then you have a counter idea accompanying the original idea, and you build up your texture like that. I'm really into Kruder and Dorfmeister at the moment, and they do the same thing.

- Charles Hazlewood

Same Covering

I didn't care for beat reporting, covering the same thing day after day - short attention span.

- Charles Portis

Some Nod

I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.

Always Bit

It's always nice for the judges and the audiences to have something a bit different so they don't always see and hear the same thing.

- Charlotte Dujardin


In primary school in south-eastern Nigeria, I was taught that Hosni Mubarak was the president of Egypt. I learned the same thing in secondary school. In university, Mubarak was still president of Egypt. I came to assume, subconsciously, that he - and others like Paul Biya in Cameroon and Muammar Gaddafi in Libya - would never leave.

- Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Nothing Set

On Disney, we stick to the script. But you go to the 'Grown Ups set' and it's completely different. Same thing with Tyler Perry - it's nothing but ad-libbing.

Rules Which

The Defense Department is prone to all of the 'traditional bureaucratic rules,' which is the same thing you'll find in most traditional government systems.

Roll Hosting

A live performance is the same no matter what genre it is. Wrestling, rock 'n roll, hosting, acting - it's the same thing.

Over Roles

Any actor wants to do interesting roles, different roles. It's not all that much fun to do the same thing over and over again.

Side Honestly

Honestly, 'Side A' is supposed to be a project just from my heart and whatever is happening in my heart at the time, and I want 'Side B' to also fit that same thing.

- Christina Grimmie

Very Projects

It's very important to understand that we never do the same thing twice; each of our projects is unique. We'll never do another 'Gates.' Each project is a unique image. We do not know in advance how the work will look. I do preparatory drawings, but they are only projections of our vision.

- Christo

Answers Lives

In the mental calmness of a spiritual life, I have found that the answers to the whys in our lives are able to come to you. In my music I find the same thing.

Humor Dancing

Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.

Other Very

I always tell people, when they ask me what to do to be a writer or to be a performer, the key is to go to a place where there are a lot of other people who are trying to do the same thing as you and taking it very seriously.

- Colin Jost

Doing Over

You don't break ground by doing the same thing over and over and over. That's like standing in place. You have to risk to gain it all.

Artist Want

Country About

I did many interviews, and went out and talked to many people and went to rallies. It was the same thing with menopause. I traveled around the country on talk shows and talking to women about.

Bad Same

Popular and good and bad is not the same thing.

- Cyrus Broacha

Congress Dad

We've got a dictatorial president and a Justice Department that does not want Congress involved. Your guy's acting like he's king. His dad was at a 90 percent approval rating and he lost! And the same thing can happen to him!

- Dan Burton

Level Otherwise

In order to lift a certain object from the ground, we have to use energy. But then to sustain it at that level, we have to keep on adding energy, or otherwise, the object falls to the ground. It's exactly the same thing with the sound.

- Daniel Barenboim

Character Same

Plot and character are virtually the same thing.

- Daniel Keys Moran

Larger Scene

If you're filming a scene on horseback, if you're trying to control an animal that's much larger than you and trying to get it to do the exact same thing so you can match things up, that can get tricky, especially if the horse gets tired or angry or something.

- Daniel Portman

Big Like

I've got quite a big fan base, and people like to see you do the same thing - that's why you get offered the same roles.

- Danny Dyer

Play Through

I'm normally late, so I just kind of throw on the sort of thing that's at hand. And then I'll go through phases of wearing the same thing again and again and again - and my wardrobe is mainly about black and white, so it goes together. I'll play with certain elements, but I don't really think about it too much.

- Daphne Guinness

Always Away

I always say the same thing - believe in what you do, do it, and don't veer away from the truth of it.

Everyone Else

In social, you have to innovate in information. If you have the same thing as everyone else, you're just not interesting.

Prepare Ahead

In symphonic music, when you are conducting, you do the same thing. You are feeling the whole orchestra, thinking ahead so you can prepare for a change.

- David Amram

Hollywood Again

You hear again and again that audiences want to see movies that are different, and critics say we make the same thing again and again in Hollywood, then you go and make something different, and you get kicked in the gut for it.

- David Ayer

Drop I Write

I believe that I improve with every book I write - most writers will probably tell you the same thing. I'm still learning my craft and will be until the day I drop dead at my computer. In my opinion, art isn't something that can be perfected. There's always room for improvement.

- David B. Coe

Love Bad

I'm probably wouldn't do anything differently if I had to do it again. Every little thing that happens to you, good and bad, becomes a little piece of the puzzle of who you become. Every successful person you read about - Warren Buffett, Bill Gates - they all say pretty much the same thing. 'Do what you love.' I know I did.

- David Foster

Empathy Main

The main tenet of design thinking is empathy for the people you're trying to design for. Leadership is exactly the same thing - building empathy for the people that you're entrusted to help.

- David M. Kelley

About I Write

When I write an email where I outlined a whole scene, it just came out of my unconscious, it comes from a deeper place. The same thing happens when the actors go, take after take, and just get lost in it. When you're in a house, you don't think about being in the house; you're just there.

- David O. Russell

Mind Doing

In my mind, there are too many copycat web products out there that are doing the same thing.

- Daymond John

Woman Another

The contrasting focus on connection versus hierarchy also sheds light on innumerable adult conversations - and frustrations. Say a woman tells another about a personal problem and hears in response, 'I know how you feel' or 'the same thing happens to me.' The resulting 'troubles talk' reinforces the connection between them.

- Deborah Tannen

I Think Very

My eight years in Detroit, obviously, were my most successful years managing. I think that Pittsburgh and Detroit are probably very, very similar. We kinda rekindled the fire of baseball in Pittsburgh. We did the exact same thing in Detroit.

- Jim Leyland

Happy Career

My proudest thing in my career is that I was able to change it three times. And I'm happy about that. I couldn't have done the same thing my whole life; I would've gone nuts. I couldn't do it, because I do things based on impulsive excitement, and I'm just not that guy that can do something for 50 years and be excited about the same thing.

- Jimmy Iovine

Love Grandkids

I love coaching my grandkids, but I love working with my two sons. J.D. is the head coach, and I'm the assistant - you believe that? I missed so much of them growing up. I really messed up there. So I like working with J.D. and Coy. I'm trying not to do the same thing again. With J.D. and Coy, I missed so much.

- Joe Gibbs

Year Show

A lot of people look back ten years ago and go, 'Why was I wearing that?' I look back a year ago and say the same thing. The craziest outfit I ever wore was this white suit that I wore to an awards show in L.A. that I teamed with yellow shoes. It was interesting. It popped.

- Joe Jonas

Back Had

You know, I've had blowups with my coach too. The same thing happens, it just wasn't as evident back then because they didn't have so many cameras and ways to see things happen.

- Joe Montana

Doing Making

I'm content with making records, but I don't want to be doing the same thing all the time.

- John Cale

Phones Cut

My second business would have succeeded but for competitors' jealousy. I was selling motorbike gear cheap, but the people I was undercutting complained to the manufacturer and cut off my supply. It showed me how corrupt business can be. When I sold phones, the same thing happened, but this time I was ready.

- John Caudwell

Doing World War

If the Marines today are doing exactly the same thing their dads did in Vietnam and their granddads did in Korea and World War II, then how in the hell can we say that they're not as good?

- John F. Kelly

Rush Crossing

Prudence is not the same thing as caution. Caution is a helpful strategy when you're crossing a minefield; it's a disaster when you're in a gold rush.

- John Ortberg

Year Works

In philanthropy, many of us give a little bit and each year we give more and more to see what actually works and not just throw money out there and see if it's going to work. If the government did the same thing, fabulous.

- John Paul DeJoria

Pretty Minister

A doctor today would never prescribe the treatments my grandfather used in the Confederate Army, but a minister says pretty much the same thing today that a minister would have said back then.

- John Templeton

Work Willing

What people want out of their politicians is exactly the same thing that I want - somebody who is approachable, willing to work, and tells me the truth as they see it.

- John Yarmuth

Circles Movie

'Dark Circles' is a great relationship/character piece and also a horror film. It tinkered with the genre, which I loved. I was sick of seeing the same thing, sick of people just trying to get a movie made.

- Johnathon Schaech

Big Nirvana

Nirvana was like that- Nirvana was like the only band to come out of that- it was like the same thing, Seattle was like this whole scene and it was like this big scene that was thrust upon America.

- Jon Fishman

Doing About

Being a doctor has taught me a lot about directing. You're doing the same thing: You're reconstructing the manifold of behavior to the point where an audience says, yes, that's exactly like people I know.

- Jonathan Miller

Black Turn

There is something transformative if you're a black person cheering in a theater and turn to see a white person cheering for the same thing you are.

- Jordan Peele

Woman Taste

I'm always fetishizing the French woman and French taste and style. My assistant will make fun of me because every time we're picking the direction of a collection, I say the same thing: 'I want it to be really French.'

- Joseph Altuzarra


We are not a monolithic group of individuals, not every single person believes the exact same thing.

- Joseph Crowley

Doing Song

I've forgotten lines all the time. Sometimes I switch verses in a song. It's just hard not to when you're doing the same thing all the time.

- Josh Young

Politics Same

Religion is organized to satisfy and guide the soul - politics does the same thing for the body.

- Joyce Cary

Which Costs

Sometimes you leave the house for school, and you realize you're wearing the same thing as your toddler, which is embarrassing! I try to avoid it at all costs.

- Julia Restoin Roitfeld

Big Wear

I hate picking out outfits for events. That's why I always wear the same thing when I go out - OK, not exactly the same, but always something easy. If it isn't a big fashion event, it'll be jeans and a nice top.

- Julia Restoin Roitfeld

Same Very

It's very complicated because I cannot wear the same thing too often.

- Julie London

Doing Been

I look at the NFL and see how the transition has gone at quarterback. I might be coming along at a good time. For me personally, this is about doing the same thing I've been doing at USF - just smile, have fun, enjoy the experience, keep a positive attitude and encourage my teammates. I like to feed off the people around me.

- B. J. Daniels
