String

Total Quotes : 95
King Some

While I'm working, I stick with music that won't distract me - the dub stylings of Scientist and King Tubby, maybe some Beethoven string quartets.

- Adam Mansbach

Through Will

You will find truth more quickly through delight than gravity. Let out a little more string on your kite.

- Alan Cohen

Level Describing

Our best theory of describing space at a fundamental level is probably string theory.

- Alan Guth

Deep Behind

In Mexico, when we want to speak deep secrets, we drink pulgue together. It is a drink made from the cactus plant, and when you take the bottle from your mouth, it leaves a string behind, between the mouth and the bottle, like a spider's web. It shows that the truth sticks inside.

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

Happy Sometimes

Depending on where I am in the process, sometimes I have a page count and sometimes I don't. Sometimes I have an hour count; sometimes I'm just happy to string a few words together. I do keep pretty rigorous hours, because otherwise you never get anything done.

- Alice Sebold

Doing Through

I went through a string of A&R men who all thought I should be doing something different. One thought I should be a dance diva; another thought I should do Rock n' Roll; and one thought I shouldn't even be singing at all!

- Alison Moyet

Like Types

I like to keep almonds in my pantry. I also like to keep fruit on hand, just different types depending on the season. And string cheese - that's a really good one.

- Alison Sweeney

I Think Very

In hip-hop, I wasn't very focused on delivering a message. It was just a string of lines that didn't connect. What I wanted to do is write stories... and affect someone's emotions with that song. I think as a soul singer, I'm able to accomplish that.

- Aloe Blacc

Play Middle

We used to play the underground clubs like the UFO, and Middle Earth, and they were great because they would have on things like a poet, string quartets, and then a rock band! It was kinda cool!

- Alvin Lee

Voice Small

The guitar is a small orchestra. It is polyphonic. Every string is a different color, a different voice.

- Andres Segovia

Some Lives

If our lives are made up of a string of a thousand moments, at some of those moments we look a lot more spiritually evolved than at others.

- Anne Lamott

Sure Divergent

It's important to be a divergent musician and do a little bit of everything, except you have to make sure your fans are aware of it and that you string them along the right way.

- Ansel Elgort

Need Sentence

You don't need to be able to string a sentence together in a way that is elegant or even vaguely meaningful to produce a bestseller - as Dan Brown has demonstrated time and again.

- Anthony Horowitz

Work Some

There are a lot of good things about string theory, and it's great that some people want to work on it.

- Antony Garrett Lisi

Very Instance

I owe very, very much to Mozart; and if one studies, for instance, the way in which I write for string quartet, then one cannot deny that I have learned this directly from Mozart. And I am proud of it!

- Arnold Schoenberg

Writing Whether

Whether it's string writing or whatever, I try to write for what each instrumentalist can do best.

- Chuck Mangione

Tears Before

Before 'Whiplash,' I'd had a string of failed scripts. I'd pour my blood, sweat and tears into them, and no one would like them.

- Damien Chazelle

World Cases

World War II provides a string of celebrated cases of deception and manipulation.

- David Ignatius

Music Reasons

There is much modern music that is better adapted to a wind combination than to a string, although for obvious reasons originally scored for an orchestra. If in such cases the interpretation is equal to the composition the balance of a wind combination is more satisfying.

- John Philip Sousa

Affect Vary

Any object, whether animate or inanimate, will have a size. Airplanes, boats, or musical string instruments vary in size just like animals and plants, and in all cases, their size and their material construction are totally different matters even though they affect one another.

- John Tyler Bonner

Play Very

I sometimes feel a bit embarrassed to play guitar. There's something - I don't want to sound ungrateful - but there's something very old-fashioned and traditional about it. You meet kids today whose grandparents were in punk bands. It's very old and traditional, but then, so is an orchestra and so is a string section.

- Jonny Greenwood

Having Images

I suppose subconsciously I was thinking in terms of having the scale of it matching the scale of the images. Hence the sort of string quartet, jazz band and electronic stuff.

- Jonny Greenwood

Bottom Tuned

The bottom string is tuned to an open G.

- Jules Shear

About Melodies

I hear these melodies. I hear horn lines and string lines. That's what's fun about recording with an orchestra.

- Barbra Streisand

Book Wire

My first book, 'The Age of Wire and String,' came out in 1995, and it was hardly reviewed at all.

- Ben Marcus

Doing Making

All gut strings. That's just the first kind of guitar I played, it was a nylon string guitar. And to me, it's the purest form of guitar making, and I just enjoy doing it.

- Guy Clark

Last Last Night

The Detroit String Quartet played Brahms last night. Brahms lost.

- Bennett Cerf

Politics My Life

Politics is challenging for everyone's integrity... I have to wake up with myself every morning, and I have to be OK with the person I wake up with. If I string together too many days of waking up with a person I'm not happy to be, I have a lot bigger things at stake in my life than an election or a job.

- Betsy Hodges

Chemistry Still

I'll come in with a string of riffs and direct the musical ideas. But you still need a band and their input to make the ideas come alive. You can't underestimate band chemistry.

- Billy Corgan

Finance Rest

These heroes of finance are like beads on a string; when one slips off, all the rest follow.

- Henrik Ibsen

Mess Gross

I'm a disorganized mess. My purse is gross: I once found a shoulder pad, string cheese, and a Christmas ornament in it!

- Hoda Kotb

Seventies Performer

I felt that, in retrospect, there was a time in the late Seventies, after I had a string of hits and successes, as a performer and a recording artist, that I wasn't saying anything.

- Boz Scaggs

Bacon Cured

Bacon's not the only thing that's cured by hanging from a string.

- Hugh Kingsmill

Sound Range

The Marshall guitar amplifier doesn't just get louder when you turn it up. It distorts the sound to produce a whole range of new harmonics, effectively turning a plucked string instrument into a bowed one.

- Brian Eno

Which Sets

In my own recent String Trio I attempt to superimpose two quite different sets of formal strategies, both of which, ultimately, refer back to historical precedent.

- Brian Ferneyhough

Play Whole

I'll play out the string and leave baseball without a tear. A man can't play games his whole life.

- Brooks Robinson

Small Play

I say to string players in small chamber orchestras, 'it's always easy to become a passenger on the journey in sound, just adding volume to the whole. But if you play in an individual way, it makes the difference between good and great sound in an orchestra.'

- Itzhak Perlman

Week Use

There are a lot of shows that have secrets and string people along and use the secrets of the narrative engine to keep people coming back every week. I don't know if those programs even have an answer. I don't know how they build their shows.

- J. H. Wyman

Anywhere Put

One time, I pranked my sister: I put red solo cups in her room on her floor and filled them with water. Then I put string all over so you couldn't get anywhere.

- Cameron Dallas

Country Behind

I am not one of those people who string their exes along. Instead, I run and hide: under the covers, behind my computer screen, on opposite coasts of the country.

- Jami Attenberg

Bigger Gauge

My philosophy is the thicker the wood the thicker the sound, the bigger the string the bigger the sound. My smallest string is a 14 gauge.

- Dick Dale

Small Young

If you can have a really good coaching staff, and you can have a really good young quarterback and do a really good job in player personnel and string together multiple successful drafts, your window is not small in the NFL because of the quarterback.

- Jeffrey Lurie

Records Simon

Simon Hale, the British arranger, does all string and wood arrangements on my records.

- Duncan Sheik

Athlete Like

It's like an athlete. He has a string of hot years, and then he fades into nothingness. The actor doesn't necessarily fade into nothingness. After his hot years, he fades into a different category.

- Ed Asner

Saddle Discovered

I destroyed a lot of guitars trying to get them to do what I wanted, but I learned something from every guitar I tore apart, and discovered even more things. Things like if the string is not straight from the bridge saddle to the nut, you're going to have friction.

- Eddie Van Halen

Cut Some

My Barbies were usually naked. Once, I took their heads off, cut their hair, drew on their short, spiky hair with some markers, then stuck the heads on Christmas lights. Every year, we'd string our tree with those Barbie heads. It looked demonic. My parents were so cool - they saw it as a form of self-expression.

- Jessica Biel

I Write Several

For me, playing music while I write is important. Several of the romantic scenes in 'Paris' were written with Debussy's 'String Quartet,' his 'L'Apres-midi d'une Faune,' or Canteloube's 'Songs of the Auvergne' playing in the background.

- Edward Rutherfurd

Big Very

I just think too many nice things have happened in string theory for it to be all wrong. Humans do not understand it very well, but I just don't believe there is a big cosmic conspiracy that created this incredible thing that has nothing to do with the real world.

- Edward Witten

Very Turned

Even before string theory, especially as physics developed in the 20th century, it turned out that the equations that really work in describing nature with the most generality and the greatest simplicity are very elegant and subtle.

- Edward Witten

Having Vibrate

Having those extra dimensions and therefore many ways the string can vibrate in many different directions turns out to be the key to being able to describe all the particles that we see.

- Edward Witten

New Making

Spreading out the particle into a string is a step in the direction of making everything we're familiar with fuzzy. You enter a completely new world where things aren't at all what you're used to.

- Edward Witten

Nature Description

String theory is an attempt at a deeper description of nature by thinking of an elementary particle not as a little point but as a little loop of vibrating string.

- Edward Witten

Big Got

Technically you need the extra dimensions. At first people didn't like them too much, but they've got a big benefit, which is that the ability of string theory to describe all the elementary particles and their forces along with gravity depends on using the extra dimensions.

- Edward Witten

Discovered Vibrate

You have that one basic string, but it can vibrate in many ways. But we're trying to get a lot of particles because experimental physicists have discovered a lot of particles.

- Edward Witten

Big Big Change

It's indeed surprising that replacing the elementary particle with a string leads to such a big change in things. I'm tempted to say that it has to do with the fuzziness it introduces.

- Edward Witten

Arguing Players

Pianists don't argue too much generally because we have such a hard time just getting things right; arguing is for string players.

- Emanuel Ax

Think Works

I like to think about stringing songs together like a string of pearls, or a string of beads, but ultimately it has to be stuff that really works with the band, and gives a spin to the older material.

- Emmylou Harris

Piano Give

Give me a guitar, give me a piano, give me a broom and string; I wouldn't get bored anywhere.

- Keith Richards

Japan Spain

In most places that are rich in guitar culture, everyone uses their fingers, like in Spain or Africa. In Japan there are string instruments played that way. It is not until you get in the States that you find people using picks.

- Kevin Eubanks

Desire Balloon

You lose your anonymity just like a helium balloon with a string. Therefore people are going to have their own opinion and they're going to write in whatever clever manner they desire.

- Kim Basinger

Studio Cut

When I was a kid and I bought a record, I ripped that thing open, I wanted to know who was playing what, what studio it was cut at, who was the string arranger, who was the engineer.

- Lenny Kravitz

New Hollywood

How could a New Yorker possibly take something called the Hollywood String Quartet seriously?

- Leonard Slatkin

I Think Tell

Is the universe 'elegant,' as Brian Greene tells us? Not as far as I can tell, not the usual laws of particle physics, anyway. I think I might find the universal principles of String Theory most elegant - if I only knew what they were.

- Leonard Susskind

Big Took

When I got my first guitar my fingers wouldn't go to the sixth string so I took off the big E and played with just five strings. I was only 6 or 7.

- Les Paul

Career Doing

I spent most of my career doing high-energy physics, quarks, dark matter, string theory and so on.

- Geoffrey West

Broken Slipping

A word of kindness is seldom spoken in vain, while witty sayings are as easily lost as the pearls slipping from a broken string.

- George Dennison Prentice

More Code

When you click on a link, you are replicating the string of code that it links to. Replication of code sequences isn't life, any more than replication of nucleotide sequences is, but we know that it sometimes leads to life.

- George Dyson

Back Methods

Every cell in our body, whether it's a bacterial cell or a human cell, has a genome. You can extract that genome - it's kind of like a linear tape - and you can read it by a variety of methods. Similarly, like a string of letters that you can read, you can also change it. You can write, you can edit it, and then you can put it back in the cell.

- George M. Church

Kid Cabbage

I'm obsessed with broccoli, carrots, celery, string beans, snap peas, black kale, brussels sprouts, cabbage - I could go on! They used to call me 'rabbit' when I was a kid. I hate mushrooms, though. I apologize to fungi lovers, but this way, there's more for you!

- Lisa Edelstein

Fish Stick

I can fish from a stick and a string.

- Giancarlo Esposito

Sometimes Studio

My son and I run a string company, and he has a studio there, and I go down sometimes and we'll record.

- Phil Everly

Behind Against

The string of disqualification cases were filed against me when I was still contemplating a run for the presidency by people whose motives were suspect at best. Powerful groups with personal agenda are behind these cases. But I am not afraid. Not when the people are behind me.

- Grace Poe

Chicken Shovel

There's nothing better for kids than a bucket and shovel at the beach. I grew up across the marsh from The Citadel. We loved buying chicken necks at the Piggly Wiggly, tying them to a string on a stick and catching blue crabs.

- Thomas Gibson

Scientific Read

When I was in high school, I was really into string theory and superstring theory and read 'Scientific American.' It's fascinating.

- Sam Trammell

Going Laid

For anybody to say well this is not Hip Hop and that's not Hip Hop, that is not the way the formula was laid down. It was for the people who were going to continue take anything musically and string it along.

- Grandmaster Flash

Bad Endless

But by showing us live coverage of every bad thing happening everywhere in the world, cable news makes life seem like it's just an endless string of disasters - when, for most people in most places today, life is fairly good.

- Gregg Easterbrook

Which Very

Danzon is my favorite Cuban music, played by a traditional string orchestra with flute and piano. It's very formally structured but romantic music, which derives from the French-Haitian contradance.

- Rachel Kushner

Love Gotta

There are things that can only be said with a good string of cussing. I'm definitely fond of a few choice words. They say things that nothing else can say. Gotta love it.

- Tony Hale

Strong Rather

String theory has had a long and wonderful history. It originated as a technique to try to understand the strong force. It was a calculational mechanism, a way of approaching a mathematical problem that was too difficult, and it was a promising way, but it was only a technique. It was a mathematical technique rather than a theory in itself.

- Sheldon Lee Glashow

See Interactions

What the string theorists do is arguably physics. It deals with the physical world. They're attempting to make a consistent theory that explains the interactions we see among particles and gravity as well. That's certainly physics, but it's a kind of physics that is not yet testable.

- Sheldon Lee Glashow

Concerned Attend

There are physicists, and there are string theorists. Of course the string theorists are physicists, but the string theorists in general will not attend lectures on experimental physics. They will not be terribly concerned about the results of experiments. They will talk to one another.

- Sheldon Lee Glashow

Industry Teeming

The film industry is driven by male narrative. Heads of studios are often men, teeming with male executives everywhere you look, and so the narratives we have the screenwriters usually for male leads. Women tend to be second string: the girlfriend of, the secretary who becomes.

- Trudie Styler

Think Musical

Think of a musical as a string of pearls. If you don't have a string, you can't put the pearls around your neck.

- Marsha Norman

Play Own

I started trying to do my own music at home, and I was like, 'You know what, I can play the guitar, sort of. And I can do these things, sort of. And I can make these crazy noises on my computer, sort of. But I need a ridiculously good drummer. I need someone to help me with string arrangements.'

- Steve Burns

Been Before

After I changed the string we picked up right where we left off - and punched back in at the same time. I don't know if this has ever been done before. The engineer sort of looked at us weird, but we got it on the first take.

- Stevie Ray Vaughan

Next Audience

What you never want to do is have a story that doesn't track emotionally, because then you're going joke to joke and you're going to fatigue the audience. The only thing that's going to string them to the next joke is how successful the previous joke is.

- Paul Feig

New Still

Well, I guess that early 12 string. The first Martin I bought. I bought it around 1957 with money I earned as a janitor assistant. I bought brand new. I still have that.

- Roger McGuinn

About Requirements

As you say, the way string theory requires all these extra dimensions and this comes from certain consistency requirements about how string should behave and so on.

- Roger Penrose

Nature Here

In the book, I make the point that here we have string theory and here we have twistor theory and we don't know if either one of them is the right approach to nature.

- Roger Penrose

Painting Means

A painting means as much to you as a string of pearls to an ape.

- Paul Scofield

Balloon Tied

All of those years, I felt like 'Heaven's Gate' was a beautiful, fantastically colored balloon tied to a string fastened to my wrist, so the balloon could never fly.

- Michael Cimino

Tone Shared

I shared guitars before I actually got one of my own and played a guy's Silver tone and played another guys Danelectro 12 string and it was at about age 17 that I actually started playing.

- Ronnie Montrose

Space According

According to String Theory, what appears to be empty space is actually a tumultuous ocean of strings vibrating at the precise frequencies that create the 4 dimensions you and I call height, width, depth and time.

- Roy H. Williams

Space Essence

In essence, String Theory describes space and time, matter and energy, gravity and light, indeed all of God's creation... as music.

- Roy H. Williams

Very Use

In our daily lives as programmers, we process text strings a lot. So I tried to work hard on text processing, namely the string class and regular expressions. Regular expressions are built into the language and are very tuned up for use.

- Yukihiro Matsumoto
