Weekend

Total Quotes : 98
Football Spent

Football games on Friday nights followed by field parties every weekend was how I spent my high school years.

- Abbi Glines

Silicon Valley

If you crave further confirmation that Silicon Valley is a magical place where magical thinking reigns, consider the tale of Roku, the video streaming company that filed to go public Friday, when alert people everywhere were headed out for a long weekend.

- Adam Lashinsky

Doing Year

Truth be told, I didn't want to be on T.V. I was going to be a writer or producer or a director, and at the end of my sophomore year, my department chairman put me up for a job doing weekend weather in Syracuse, New York.

- Al Roker

Book Wait

Television viewing has become for me a completely different experience, because I don't watch shows on a weekly basis. I wait until the DVD or I TiVo everything and wait until the end of a season and watch it all over a weekend. For me that's a really satisfying experience, like reading a book.

- Alan Ball

Alive Been

Spending a weekend with Hitler would have been boring in the extreme, although you would have had a greater certainty in coming back alive.

- Alan Bullock

Last Sweaters

I was in Kashmir last weekend. Went to visit one of my sweaters.

- Albert Brooks

New Say

Well, first of all, let me say that - let me remind your viewers that I am recused from this investigation, and what I said this weekend is not anything new.

- Alberto Gonzales

Figures Dad

From the time I was in first grade or so, my dad collected 'Star Wars' toy figures from the 1970s and '80s, and we'd take weekend family trips to antique shops and to toy stores. My father collected a crazy amount of 'Star Wars' stuff over the years, and he and I traveled to many conventions.

- Alexandra Bracken

Professionally

When I traveled professionally in Europe, I would inevitably spend a weekend at the Hotel Costes around the corner from the Place Vendome in Paris.

- Amor Towles

TV Entire

I spent my entire youth in front of a TV watching old movies, and as soon as I was able to get a subway pass, when I was 14, I joined the Museum of Modern Art and was there all weekend watching old movies.

- Amy Heckerling

Been Hang

I'd always been extremely fascinated by the French Nuit Blanche, which is a weekend that they have in Paris where they keep all the museums open until dawn. You can go and hang out in Versailles in the middle of the night and watch the sun come up.

- Anna Wintour

Side Upper

Growing up on, say, the Upper East Side, you're so isolated. If you go to the Hamptons every weekend, you never talk to a construction worker, and the construction worker would never talk to you.

- Ansel Elgort

Loved Always

I've always loved the 'Weekend Update' people.

- Chevy Chase

Entertainment Use

Users socialize to figure out what they're going to do on the weekend. They use MySpace to discover new music and post events. Musicians upload their music. People use it for entertainment purposes or to sell goods in the classified area. MySpace makes what they do in the offline world a) more efficient or b) more interesting.

- Chris DeWolfe

Will Like

I do like to just have football on, so I will TiVo, like, three or four games for the weekend, and I'll just turn it on when there's no live football on, just to have the background noise.

- Christopher Gorham

Honor Country

Armed Forces Day on May 21, and the Memorial Day weekend that follows, is a time to honor, remember and recognize those who serve and have served our country, as well as those who have died in service. As we reflect, let's not forget the many sacrifices made at home as well in support of our men and women in uniform.

- Chuck Norris

Diner Trails

Now that I have a 16-month-old son, my weekend ritual has changed - but it's better than ever. We get up early and go for a walk on one of the hiking trails near my home in Los Angeles, then meet up with friends at a diner. There's nothing better than sipping coffee, eating scrambled eggs, and taking three hours to do it.

- Connie Britton

Mum Dad

I was really into old musicals. When I was seven or eight, my mum and dad would be like, 'How does she know who Ginger Rogers is?' Then, one weekend, Josephine Baker popped up in a French film called 'Zouzou,' and I was so stunned because she looked like me.

- Cush Jumbo

Week Been

I am still feeling my calf strain, so I have been unable to train this week. I will again have to sit out the weekend action, but the lads are climbing ever higher to safety.

- David Ginola

Myself Almost

If I'm at home for the weekend - and that is almost never - I tend to get twitchy at about eight o'clock in the evening because my body clock is timed to go on stage. I don't know what to do with myself.

- Jimmy Carr

Week Favorite Part

I go to Costco every weekend. It's my favorite part of the week.

- Jimmy Kimmel

Will Go

If I do not return to the pulpit this weekend, millions of people will go to hell.

- Jimmy Swaggart

Other Another

Yes, but another writer I read in high school who just knocked me out was Theodore Dreiser. I read An American Tragedy all in one weekend and couldn't put it down - I locked myself in my room. Now that was antithetical to every other book I was reading at the time because Dreiser really had no style, but it was powerful.

- Joan Didion

People Go

It's an awesome thing to be flung out onto the stage twice a weekend in front of 250 people, and you have to make it up as you go along.

- Joel McHale

Go Home Go

I make it a point to go home every weekend so I can meet with Georgians and hear from them directly.

- Johnny Isakson

About Some

Graham Greene famously said that all writers need a chip of ice in their heart; Cusk can come across as the most beautiful ice palace of stalactites and stalagmites, and some people find her company, albeit by proxy, about as inviting as a long weekend in a walk-in frigidaire.

- Julie Burchill

Love USC

I love Irvine. That's my 'hood. I went to USC and used to come home every weekend. It's in my comfort zone.

- Justin Chon

Second Chance Put

You could make the most beautiful film, and that weekend it's raining too hard on the East Coast, and no one goes out. Artists should have a chance to do it again. That's the challenge: Women artists don't get a second chance. People-of-color artists don't get a second chance. You're put in director's jail, and that's a wrap.

- Ava DuVernay

Sick Instance

For a while, I didn't want to leave the house. Eventually, I just got sick of being indoors. Now I take steps not to be noticed when I don't want to be. For instance, I live near Westfield shopping centre, so I won't go there at the weekend.

- Ben Hardy

Perfect Columbia

I was packing to go to Columbia University, and they told me that weekend that I got the 'Pitch Perfect.'

- Ben Platt

Truck About

Just about every weekend when I was growing up, we would throw rods and rifles and tents and shovels and pickaxes into the back of the truck and then head off to the side of a mountain or the bottom of a canyon. Hiking, fishing, hunting, rock-hounding: this is how my parents passed the time.

- Benjamin Percy

Activity Bikes

My favorite weekend activity is riding bikes to breakfast.

- Halston Sage

My Life About

I grew up riding horses since I was eight. I rode English style and competed every weekend. I had two horses, Scout and Camille, and they were my babies. It taught me a lot about responsibility and commitment. I hope horses will always be in my life.

- Halston Sage

Hair World

The club thing is a world people can associate with, letting your hair down at the weekend.

- Billy Boyd

My Life Weekends

I have never in my life found myself in a situation where I've stopped work and said, 'Thank God it's Friday.' But weekends are special even if your schedule is all over the place. Something tells you the weekend has arrived and you can indulge yourself a bit.

- Helen Mirren

Classics Which

I'm a huge fan of 'The Lost Weekend.' I have this dog-eared copy of the 1963 Time Reading Program edition, which was a series of contemporary classics reprinted as a quality paperback.

- Blake Bailey

Gambling Away

I would say, stay the hell away from the party scene. Anything you put in front of your goal, and especially something like that, whether it's too much gambling, too much food, too much cold beers on the weekend - anything that you put in front of the prize is going to end up getting in the way and hurting you in the end.

- Brad Renfro

Thought North

I went to professional men's soccer games, the old North American soccer league at that time, and I used to be a ticket holder with my family and family friends. We would go every weekend and I thought it was great, but I just thought of it as recreation, as family fun.

- Brandi Chastain

Doing Now

One of my friends went on a murder weekend... now he is doing life for it.

- Jack Dee

Love Everything

When you love fashion, there is no weekend. Everything just blends together.

- Carine Roitfeld

Play Cards

I don't think I'm a workaholic. Every weekend, I invite my colleagues and friends to my home to play cards. And people, my neighbors, are always surprised because I live on the second floor apartment, and there are usually 40 pairs of shoes in front of my gate, and people play cards inside and play chess. We have a lot of fun.

- Jack Ma

I Think TV

That's great because I know as a teenager, I didn't relate to a TV series where all people do is cheerlead and drink sodas on the weekend. So I think it'll be great if it can be seen by a few people at least.

- Caroline Dhavernas

Like Ticket

I, like most guys, sit around on Sundays, turn on 'NFL Sunday Ticket,' and watch a dozen-plus games every weekend, much to the dismay of my family.

- Casey Wasserman

Without Soon

I am such that person that, when I'm working, I'm like, 'Oh, what I wouldn't give for a weekend off!' And then, as soon as I have more that 18 hours without anything to do, I start shaking. It's really funny.

- Cassidy Freeman

Body Year

It doesn't make sense for me to try to be, like, a dance dude who only releases two 12-inches a year and then plays every weekend. Making an album, you get to put out a body of work that shows a lot of different sides of you. And you get to work on it for an intense period of time and promote that album. And then you get to move on.

- Jamie xx

Want Wake

You know what I want to do? Wake up one weekend and not have to go anywhere and do nothing.

- Derek Jeter

Weekends Very

On weekends, the U.S. was casual; in Italy the weekend was very formal. I came to understand that weekends are about free time, and that one could wear high quality, tasteful products that weren't so formal.

- Diego Della Valle

Candy Big

My kids know there's no candy, no soda, until the weekend. Those are the days they get to indulge in their sweets. We're big on organic food. I'm not a diet guy; I don't believe in diets. I just believe in a great meal plan.

- Donald Driver

Sports Doing

The water cooler conversation in every job I've had is sports, it's what did you do this weekend, it's 'How are your parents doing?'

- Kal Penn

Want Will

Oh, I just want what we all want: a comfortable couch, a nice beverage, a weekend of no distractions and a book that will stop time, lift me out of my quotidian existence and alter my thinking forever.

- Elizabeth Gilbert

Away Very

It's a funny thing - when I'm crazed with work, spending time with my children relaxes me. Yet, at the end of a long weekend with them, the very thing I need to relax is a little work and time away from them!

- Emily Giffin

Love Back

I live in L.A. - I love L.A., first off - but I didn't realize how much better the air quality was in Vancouver until I went back to L.A. for a weekend and I literally felt like I was breathing fire.

- Emma Bell

Like Activity

I like to dance, but it's not my weekend activity. I'm not a clubber.

- Ewan McGregor

Chips Chops

I owe the public a good performance, the best I can give. We really bust our chops on 'CHiPs' but when I go home and get a weekend off, I want to spend it quietly, with my lady.

- Larry Wilcox

Saturday Country

Muslims do drink, as anyone who has spent a wild weekend with Saudi booze tourists in Bahrain will know. Those Saudi tourists are like teenage girls in Manchester on a Saturday night. But each country and region is different.

- Lawrence Osborne

Go Had

When I was fighting at a weekend, I would be in when my friends were out. I never had time to go out and go off the rails.

- Liam Smith

Bands Paul Simon

Growing up, I listened to a lot of American singer/songwriters, so a lot of Tom Waits, Paul Simon - also Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. And bands like Vampire Weekend.

- George Ezra

Through Been

I've done so many Lifetime movies; at this point, I'll be going through airport security, and the lady there will be like, 'I took the weekend off and I saw four of your movies.' And I say: 'You've been watching Lifetime, right?'

- Linden Ashby

Play Hosting

I'm hosting weekend retreats all over America. It is like a 24-hour slumber party for moms. We laugh, eat, play games, get massages, win prizes, talk about parenting and even cry a bit.

- Lisa Whelchel

Like Frequently

I am such a vacation girl. I have little places that I go to frequently! If I am not too busy on a weekend, I try to go someplace like Mexico or Manzanillo or something like that.

- LisaRaye McCoy-Misick

Emails After

I don't look at my emails on the weekend or after 6 o'clock in the day.

- Lizzie Armitstead

Centered Part

The primary part of the weekend is centered around my children, and I have to be flexible. To call an audible is to be liquid enough to understand that at any given time you have to be a chauffeur or a chaperone, especially for my 12-year-old and whatever her plans are.

- Lyor Cohen

Book Prefer

I much prefer working with kids whose life could be completely upended by a reading of a book over a weekend. You give them a book to read - they go home and come back a changed person. And that is so much more interesting and exciting.

- Russell Banks

Love Go

I love film and I love sitcoms, and I was one of those kids that would just go to the movies on the weekend and spend my whole weekend watching all of the movies.

- Terrence J

Country Year

It's interesting to me; you do four, five or six of these Comic Cons or things like that across the country a year. Obviously, I get busted a lot of 'Weekend at Bernies,' but the fans for horror movies are so wonderful and so loyal.

- Terry Kiser

Play Jog

I do doubles on Monday and Thursday, take Wednesday off or do easy cardio, do doubles on Thursday and Friday, and the weekend I just get outside and get active - jog or bike ride, or play tennis with my mom.

- Mikaela Shiffrin

Bed Away

I don't think I believe in ghosts, per se. But, my nearest experience was when I went on a weekend away and was in a bar in England, years ago, with an ex-girlfriend. I heard this scratching. I was about to go to bed and I was thinking, 'It's an old ghost.' I could hear this noise, but I couldn't work out where it was coming from.

- Theo James

Business More

I would say you feel a lot more pressure at a national tournament than a state tournament. This is more of a fun weekend out with the guys. The national tournament is more business.

- Mike Peters

Good Quick

Because of my Asian-ness, I couldn't be anonymous - what I said, what I ate, what I did at the weekend were startlingly different to what everyone else did. I was also a performer, quick and chameleon-like, good at accents, so that made me stand out.

- Sanjeev Bhaskar

See Go Home

I go home every weekend to see my family.

- Tim Griffin

Doing Very

One thing I won't be doing on a weekend is shopping. I just don't like it, and I haven't bought an article of clothing for a very long time. I usually just take wardrobe from shows I'm on. It's much easier.

- Scott Baio

Chance Get

When I get the chance to make my favorite breakfast on the weekend, I often choose to make pancakes.

- Marcus Samuelsson

Work Over

When a team has to work over a weekend, make a high priority of being there as well, even if it's just to stop by and buy them a meal to show your appreciation.

- Scott Weiss

Sometimes Gotten

The minimum I run each day is 2 1/2 miles. I'll get to the weekend, and sometimes I'll run 10 miles. I've gotten up to 16 miles on the weekend. Running keeps me locked in.

- Ray Allen

Holiday Away

Americans have much less holiday, so for them, four or five days away is like a mini vacation, but for us, it's just a long weekend. In Europe, one takes time off more casually.

- Margherita Missoni

Toddlers Mum

Up until the age of 12, I went to dog shows every weekend. Mum showed beagles. It's a really competitive and eclectic world filled with characters who wear interesting outfits - similar to 'Toddlers & Tiaras,' but with dogs.

- Rebel Wilson

Week Entertaining

Sci-fi conventions are probably the most fun, the most out-of-the-box, entertaining week or weekend you've ever had in your life.

- Richard Hatch

Skydiving Go

If someone says, hey, you know, this long weekend, let's go skydiving - I would say, no, are you nuts? I'd just as soon sit down and have a cup of tea.

- Rick Mercer

Fifty Town

The town I grew up in was at least fifty percent Jewish, so every weekend in the 7th grade, we went to Bar and Bat Mitzvahs.

- Vanessa Bayer

Been Hang

I have been known to hang out and party back in the day. I had a weekend that lasted a few years.

- Vanilla Ice

Fight

If there wasn't no fight, there wasn't no weekend.

- O. J. Simpson

Woman Wear

We're so known for our party dresses and evening looks, I wanted to focus on what the Alice + Olivia woman is going to wear tomorrow, during the day and on the weekend, in ways that are sort of fun and sexy.

- Stacey Bendet

Week Increasingly

The stakes are high on every film now because there's the opening weekend. The first week is extremely crucial; increasingly, films are being judged in terms of opening day, opening weekend, then first week. People are going berserk promoting their films.

- Vidya Balan

Parking Patterns

Cameras can look down from on high and predict crop yields, traffic in Walmart parking lots, and travel patterns on Labor Day weekend. On the ground, they form the foundation of autonomous-driving systems.

- Om Malik

Thought Buy

I saw an ad for an expensive car and got so excited about it, I called the dealer. 'How are those new cars?' I asked. 'They're fine,' he said. I thought he'd offer to let me drive it for a weekend. He didn't. I expected a salesman to call. No one did. I didn't buy the car.

- Stanley Marcus

Father Separate

My only real contact with what my father did was that he could get 16-millimeter prints, so every weekend we would show two or three movies at home. But our house wasn't frequented by stars. My father's personal life was his personal life, and it was separate from his professional life.

- Stanley R. Jaffe

American Compete

I wish, to be honest with you, for African American films that we could get a few more theaters. They only open them in 1500 to 2000 for an opening weekend, and how do you expect us to compete. How can we go to certain box office levels if they don't give us more theaters?

- Vivica A. Fox

Play Some

I was a bouncer when I was in DePaul in Chicago at the theater school. I threw drunks out of bars - unless I had a play running that weekend. But I only had two actual fights. Some were like out of old Westerns.

- W. Earl Brown

Girly Very

I am very much a girly girl as well as being this tough, athletic fighter. I grew up a tomboy. I got my first four wheeler when I was eight. I got my first dirt bike shortly after. So, I have a lot of these manly qualities, I guess you would say. But, I also like to go get dressed up every weekend.

- Paige VanZant

Bar Session

Every weekend I go to the guitar bar in Hoboken and do a jam session.

- Steve Capus

Porch Involves

A wild and crazy weekend involves sitting on the front porch, smoking a cigar, reading a book.

- Robert M. Gates

Me Ranch

There is no such thing as a weekend for me when I'm at home on my ranch in Oregon.

- Patrick Duffy

Potatoes Britain

Whoever would have guessed that in the land of cheap sausages and mashed potatoes there could be such a change which would actually bring the French from Paris every weekend to invade Britain en masse to eat great food and drink great wine.

- Robin Leach

Bed Buy

People buy box sets, and they sit for a whole weekend with a computer on their lap in bed, and they watch two seasons back-to-back of a show. They are invested in the person within that arc or the dynamics of those people - the relationships - and it doesn't matter to them if they're watching it on an iPhone or a cinema screen.

- Robin Wright

One Day Rink

Oftentimes we will get to the rink when the sun comes up and leave when the sun is setting, so on a weekend, I really like to spend at least one day outside and not be stuck indoors all day.

- Meryl Davis

Work Night

American women often fall into the trap of, 'Oh, these are my weekend clothes. These are my work clothes. This is what I wear at night.' It's so old-fashioned.

- Michael Kors

Burn Had

I once had money to burn. I'd fly to Barbados for the weekend. I lived in a twenty-two-room mansion and had my pick of four luxury cars.

- Peter Criss

Camping Dad

When I was growing up, my dad and I would go hunting and camping every weekend. Like everyone in my family, he is an amazing cook, and I've tried to learn a lot from all of them.

- Zac Brown
