Anything Had

I have seen and heard comedians who had really funny 'stuff' but yet could not make the people laugh; then, again - I have seen others whose stuff was anything but humorous, and the audience would howl with laughter.

- Al Jolson

Appreciate Lucky

If you've never seen people taking the pledge of allegiance for the first time as U.S. Citizens, it will move you: a room full of people who can really appreciate what I was lucky enough to grow up with, simply by being born in Brooklyn.

- Alexis Ohanian

Woman Mixed

My mixed-race background made me a broad person, able to relate to different cultures. But any woman of colour, even a mixed colour, is seen as black in America. So that's how I regard myself.

- Alicia Keys

About Subsequently

When I started researching history in the 1960s, a lot of women about whom I've subsequently written were actually footnotes to history. There was a perception that women weren't important. And it's true. Women were seen historically as far inferior to men.

- Alison Weir

Big Fan

I was a big fan of X. I've probably seen 100 X shows during their time in the late '70s and early '80s.

- Allison Anders

Deep Tools

If you stuck me in a room and gave me art-making tools but told me no one would ever see the results, I don't think I'd have much desire to make art. What I do comes from a deep desire to be seen and to see others.

- Amanda Palmer

About Had

When I first came to America, you know, I would look at the newsstands and see the women on the magazine covers. I had never seen anyone smile the way these girls smile! It's like they have nothing to worry about!

- Anchee Min

Streets Then

I have seen streets where someone said it's all fine, and then it was full of land mines.

- Anja Niedringhaus

I Think Been

Being passed up by teams because of my size made me hungry. I've seen a lot of first-round guys who come in and never really do nothing because they may not appreciate the opportunity because everything has been given to them. I think guys who come from the bottom understand how hard it is, so they appreciate the opportunities more.

- Antonio Brown

Hero Very

Quite simply, we're re-telling the very first adventures of 'Daredevil', as originally seen in DD #1-6, but in a modern style and setting - being faithful without being slavish. And I'm using those adventures as a framework to delve into Matt's psyche a little, as he learns to become a hero.

- Antony Johnston

Beyond Jacket

It was Julie Burchill who decreed that, beyond a certain age, a man should not be seen in a leather jacket.

- Arthur Smith

I Can Admit

When you stop to realize that Abraham Lincoln was probably never seen by more than 400 people in a single evening, and that I can enter over 40 million homes in a single evening due to the power of television, you have to admit the situation is not normal.

- Chevy Chase

Love Main

I was inspired to become an actor from theater I'd seen, so I assumed I'd do a lot of theater. But when I left Guidhall, the first thing I did was a short film - I played the main character. And I loved it. I love working on camera. I love the smallness of it and the detail and the routine of it.

- Chloe Pirrie

Musical Often

Musical theater is often seen as a lesser form of acting, although I don't see it that way.

- Christian Borle

Looks How

What we've seen of Rey, she looks like she can handle her stuff. So most of the comments I get are from parents who say how wonderful it is that their little girls can see this character.

- Daisy Ridley

Red Oscar

I found a red Oscar de la Renta raincoat, and it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

- Dakota Johnson

Happy Values

One of the saddest things I've seen in Amazonian cultures is people who were self-sufficient and happy that now think of themselves as poor and become dissatisfied with their lives. What worries me is outsiders trying to impose their values and materialism on the Piraha.

- Daniel Everett

Sea Back

In the Java Sea in Indonesia, I have seen fishers going out in the morning, six of them going out and coming back with five pounds of fish. That is the end point, a pound of fish per person per day to sell for rice. That's where fisheries go if you let it happen. That's where it stabilizes. These people cannot feed their families.

- Daniel Pauly

Him Note

If you ask any person on this crew what they think of Hugh Jackman they'll admit they've never seen anything like it. I'll give him an emotional note and he'll hit it every time.

- Darren Aronofsky

Think Like

I don't think I'd seen anything like 'The Killing.'

- David Hewson

Achievement Back

It seemed romantic but also tragic - people would be winning but then lose it all, or crash but fight on, break bones but get back on their bikes and try to finish. Just getting to the end was seen as an achievement in itself.

- David Millar

Different Ways Gettin

There's different ways of getting into character. There's what's called 'the outside,' in which is finding the physicality of the character first. To give an example, in 'Gettin' Square' - Johnny Spitieri - that's how I found that character. I knew those people that I'd seen up at Kings Cross. I knew how they sounded.

- David Wenham

Show Very

I was never an actress in high school. I didn't start acting until I was in my twenties. I was just a funny cheerleader. I hadn't even seen a show until I was in my twenties, so I was very late getting into the business.

- Debra Monk

Other Hollering

Marriage is survived just on the basis of ordinary etiquette, day in and day out. Also cooking together helps a lot... I've seen all these marriages that failed. Those people are always hollering at each other. That doesn't work.

- Jim Harrison

Today Develop

I have seen the Raiders develop into what they are today.

- Jim Otto

Tour Anybody

There are guys you've never heard of who drive the ball better than anybody I've seen on the PGA Tour.

- Jimmy Walker

Sometimes Movies

I never think of myself as lumbering, but I guess I am. I forget how huge I am sometimes. I've seen movies where I'm with a group of people, and I'm like, 'God, I'm just so gargantuanly bigger than anyone else there.'

- John Carroll Lynch

Nature Down

When I sit down to make a sketch from nature, the first thing I try to do is to forget that I have ever seen a picture.

- John Constable

Myself Still

I don't much care to watch myself. There are still probably 50 or 60 episodes of 'Frasier' that I have never seen.

- John Mahoney

Around Turned

If the rights of civil partners are met differently in law to those of married couples, there is no discrimination in law, and if civil partnerships are seen as somehow 'second class' that is a social attitude which will change and cannot, in any case, be turned around by redefining the law of marriage.

- John Sentamu

Living Exactly

I've seldom seen a horny player walk into a bar and not let out exactly what he did for a living.

- Johnny Bench

Feel Movie

An established property can be a blessing and a challenge. On one hand you have all those fans of the original that you can pick up with and continue on with but then you have a lot of people out there who haven't seen the first and might feel like this isn't a movie for them because of that.

- Joseph Kosinski

Bit Embarrassed

People are always like, 'Oh, 'Jurassic Park' is on...' or 'Oh, 'The River Wild' is on...' I actually haven't seen any of my movies in a long time. Being more self-aware now, and being an adult, I'm a little bit embarrassed to watch them.

- Joseph Mazzello

Why Wanting

I never wanted to become an actress because I'd read great literature or seen great Shakespeare. It was more just wanting to understand what the people were really like, why they said all the strange things they did.

- Julie Walters

Movies Tom

It's like, once you've seen Tom Hanks win the Golden Globes, the Oscars, you've seen his wife, what kind of car he drives, when you watch his movies, you can't fully get really lost in them.

- Justin Theroux

Clothes High Quality

Most guys in high school wore clothes seen only by their classmates. I wore clothes seen by the world.

- Justin Timberlake

Total Translating

I've seen plays that are, objectively, total messes that move me in ways that their tidier brethren do not. That's the romantic mystery of great theater. Translating this ineffability into printable prose is a challenge that can never be fully met.

- Ben Brantley

Roots Go

My roots in electronic music go from weird glitch music to now what's seen as pop music. Electronic music is pop music now.

- GRiZ

Consume Units

Capitalism requires individual responsibility and accountability. People are seen as atomized units in a capitalist system - they are either useful, or they are not. They are not seen racially or ethnically or religiously. They consume and they produce, and those are their only relevant characteristics.

- Ben Shapiro

Streets Needed

I've never seen anyone handling pans in the streets of New York, and if I did I doubt I'd give them money, unless I needed a pan. I do give money to homeless people, whether they ask or no.

- Hamish Linklater

British Appropriate

It seems appropriate that the author of '1984' was a British citizen. George Orwell must have seen how easily the great British public's lamb-like disposition toward its leaders could be exploited to create a police state.

- Heather Brooke

Proportion Vehicles

We still haven't seen any cars take advantage of the electric powertrain in terms of how you proportion an electric vehicle versus traditional vehicles. Yes there's electric cars, but they haven't really done it in a beautiful way.

- Henrik Fisker

Other I Think

I was raised in a time where children were still seen and not heard basically, so I think a lot of us in my generation went the other way and just tried to be as much more liberal and open and we're still paying for it.

- Blythe Danner

Going Could

I've never seen a publicist that could protect me from things, protect anyone from what's going on out there.

- Brad Pitt

Very Anybody

My daughter hasn't seen me with anybody in five years. I'm very, very selective when it comes to that because I want to make sure that it's real. I don't want her to see me with just anybody because she means everything to me.

- Brandy Norwood

Like Rather

America has never seen itself as a national state like all others, but rather as an experiment in human freedom and democracy.

- Brent Scowcroft

Idea Had

I've seen a ghost in my bathroom with no face, this is true by the way, and I had a yo-yo that rolled up a hill in my apartment. My place is a little slanted. I have no idea how that happened.

- Brett Dier

Long Next

I may see somebody in a club one night and go, Wow, she's the most attractive girl I've seen in a long time. Then I'll see her the next night and be like, Oh no, I don't think so.

- Brian Austin Green

Love Great Stories

I love being an illustrator because I get to read really great stories, work with amazing people, travel and see places I never would've seen. And I get to draw all the time.

- Brian Selznick

Intellectual Machine

A toy is seen both as a bauble and as an intellectual machine.

- Brian Sutton-Smith

Him Tournament

I'd never seen Rigondeaux's face without it being obscured by headgear or a photograph of Fidel he was holding up after winning a tournament. Finally I saw him, only to recognize the saddest face I'd ever seen in Cuba.

- Brin-Jonathan Butler

Whatever Commonly

Whatever is not commonly seen is condemned as alien.

- Iris Chang

Capable Years

Cinema builds memories; great films continue to exist in the spectator's mind. We are naturally capable of and prone to nostalgia. A spectator will reconstruct a film he or she has seen, years later, and may even change their original opinion. One critic, for example, once gave the finger to one of my films; later he wrote me to apologize.

- Bruno Dumont

Done Known

I've seen it all, done it all, known it all.

- Israel Kamakawiwo'ole

Am Each

I am a huge zombie fan. I have probably seen the George Romero movies 100 times each, without exaggeration.

- J. Michael Straczynski

Best Bring

Every fight brings out something different in me, and it will be no different in this one. I have learned and gained from all of those experiences. And as I've often said, the public hasn't seen the best of me yet. I need someone like Mayweather to bring that out of me.

- Canelo Alvarez

Away Known

It's funny in the U.K., where I'm not really known because I never did a soap. My English cousins in the Lake District think I'm not a real actor because they've never seen me in 'Home and Away' or 'Neighbours.'

- Jacki Weaver

Everybody Literally

'Mean Girls' is literally one of my favorite movies. It's just such a classic. Everybody has seen it, and me and my friends quote it all the time.

- Carly Chaikin

I Think Part

I think in any profession, in general, you always imagine yourself at the top of it. And I'm not trying to say I'm at the top of my profession, but I've seen what the top people do and what the top people live like. And that's definitely something I want to be a part of.

- Jacob Batalon

Fast Driver

I'm not a fast driver. I've seen what speed can do.

- Carol Alt

Run Influenced

Their films would probably be better if they'd seen a few more films, which runs counter to this idiotic theory that you run the risk of being influenced if you see too much.

- Jacques Rivette

Around Some

I do think there's a spiritual element in the world, yes. Have I experienced a ghost firsthand, per se? No. I guess I've experienced feelings or some kind of a presence. But I certainly haven't seen any kind of transparent entity running around.

- Carrie Preston

Movie Straight Man

I watched 'Ghostbusters' from the age of four. It's my favorite movie, still. Bill Murray's, like, the weirdest straight man that you've ever seen. He's convinced that he's the normal one, even though he's definitely not.

- Jake Lacy

Thinking Everybody

One of my problems with a lot of things I watch is that everybody's too pretty, and it takes me out of the film because I'm thinking that all these people look like I've seen them in a cafe in Los Angeles.

- Cary Fukunaga

Everyone Beatles

Everyone's seen the Beatles.

- Dhani Harrison

Multiple Actually

I actually cried during 'Titanic'. It was one of the few movies I've seen in the theater multiple times.

- Jason Earles

Like Them

I've seen my performances. I don't like them.

- Don Ameche

Must Believed

An algorithm must be seen to be believed.

- Donald Knuth

Play Been

When people say 'Lysistrata' has always been seen as an anti-war play, what's interesting is to not make it an anti-war play, because I actually think there are important times to go to war in this world. That's just the reality. But what's interesting is the not caring.

- Douglas Carter Beane

Affect Out

It's sad that because I have one friend who is in the public eye, just being seen out together once means we're romantically involved. But I don't take it seriously, and it doesn't really affect me much.

- Dylan Penn

Musicians Anybody

One thing I've learned, and I don't really blame anybody for this: most people who have a lot of money are the people that want to make money more than anyone. I've seen it with athletes, I've seen it with musicians, you know?

- Eddie Trunk

Other Bisexuality

The one thing that is sort of sneered at and not really believed is bisexuality. Any bisexual man is just seen as a closeted gay man. That shows how narrow-minded people are. The other thing that's totally neglected and which nobody approves of is celibacy. People again assume that you're just repressing something.

- Edmund White

Ideology Feels

I've seen people glaze over when they're confronted with racism, and there's nothing more, you know, damning and demeaning to having any kind of ideology than people just walking the walk and saying what they're supposed to say and nodding, and nobody feels anything.

- Kara Walker

Awful Anything

Red carpets are awful. They're like a kind of purgatory - you stand there, and there are cameras flashing everywhere. One of my first red carpets was in Cannes for 'The Great Gatsby,' and I'd never seen anything like it.

- Elizabeth Debicki

Guy Tries

Like most women, I hate when a guy tries to pick me up by saying, You are the hottest girl I've ever seen. It's totally unrealistic. There are beautiful women everywhere.

- Karen McDougal

Love Stands

'Mean Girls' stands the test of time as one of the greatest comedies ever produced. I've seen it way too many times, and I just think it's the most brilliant thing ever written. I love it so much.

- Kate McKinnon

Kid Weekends

On '30 Rock,' the hours were really intense, and I was often on set. I'm glad I didn't have a kid then because I don't think I would have ever seen her. I would work 15-hour days, and weekends, too.

- Kay Cannon

Pictures Incurable

I'm an incurable romantic, and Casablanca's one of the most romantic pictures I've ever seen - the combination of Bogart and Bergman is just magical.

- Ken Adam

Dancing Matrix

The first Matrix genius, the second one, what's up with the dancing? I haven't even seen the third one.

- Ethan Embry

Weekends Very

I was very studious, too much. I would never go out at weekends. I was very serious. You should have seen me in class - I was blushing and sweating every time the teacher asked me something.

- Eva Green

Been The History Of

'China rich' is the new 'crazy rich.' It's a new level of outrageousness. It comes from this world where overnight fortunes have been made, but the fortunes are so ginormous compared to anything we've ever seen in the history of the world.

- Kevin Kwan

Run Direct

When someone at the State Department proclaims Facebook to be the most organic tool for promoting democracy the world has ever seen - that's a direct quote - it may help in the short run by getting more people onto Facebook by making it more popular with dissidents.

- Evgeny Morozov

South Mass

South Koreans who have seen and praised the mass games should remember the hardship of tearful children. Teachers drive them hard with curses and orders to repeat and repeat. When the children return home in the evening, they can hardly walk.

- Kim Il-sung

London Bit

I live in Wales but spend quite a lot of time in London - I stay with my brother. When I get home after being in Manchester or London for a bit, I forget how dark the sky is, and I won't have seen stars for ages.

- Kimberley Nixon

Say Before

Anyone who's seen me before knows that when it's fight time, I don't have much to say.

- Laila Ali

DVD Videotape

The kids have all seen it on DVD or videotape.

- Frankie Avalon

Die Had

I'd seen so many people become stagnant in New Jersey - I had this fear I'd just stay there. They'd come out of high school, get a job, get married, have kids and die in Jersey. I wanted more.

- Frankie Valli

Determination Been

You may have seen me in movies like 'Fast & Furious' and 'Avatar.' But I wouldn't have been able to do any of that without hard work and determination. You can accomplish anything if you just stay out of trouble and do the right things.

- Laz Alonso

Fair Composure

True enough, nature has endowed me with a fair measure of patience and composure, yet I should be lying if I told you that, having seen the reporter off on his way to make his deadline, I fell peacefully asleep.

- Leon Jouhaux

People Certainly

I wasn't a regular, avid 'Bones' fan, but I'd certainly seen it. I liked the banter; I liked the people and that world.

- Geoff Stults

Certainly John McCain

I don't know Gov. Palin. I've certainly seen her, since she came on the scene, you know, running with John McCain.

- Linda McMahon

Matter Idol

To the fans, it does not matter a damn how you are. You are seen as the footballer, the idol, so no one thinks to stop and ask you, 'Hey, how are you?'

- Gianluigi Buffon

Never Top

I was never top of the class at school, but my classmates must have seen potential in me, because my nickname was Einstein.

- Lucy Hawking

Show Other

I've seen racism in my audiences. For example, I've seen people laugh at every other group, but then clam up when it comes to their community. You can't laugh at everyone else and then not laugh at yourself. You shouldn't be at my show if you can't laugh at yourself.

- Russell Peters

Life Quarrels

The life and liberty and property and happiness of the common man throughout the world are at the absolute mercy of a few persons whom he has never seen, involved in complicated quarrels that he has never heard of.

- Gilbert Murray

Years Going

Going on twenty years, I've seen A-Rod getting better in different programs. He's one of the hardest-working guys there.

- Mickey Rivers

Growth Earnings

We have seen economic growth. But we have not seen earnings growth.

- Mike Farrell

Been Pairs

I've seen a lot of pairs of guys that have been hanging out together way too long-until they're laughing all the time.

- Mike Judge

Which Istanbul

The head of ISIS called for attacks during the season of Ramadan, which is what you have seen both in Orlando and now in Istanbul at the airport.

- Mike McCaul

Door Kinds

When someone is anonymous, it opens the door to all kinds of antisocial behavior, as seen by the Ku Klux Klan.

- Philip Zimbardo
