  1. I left the woods for as good a reason as I went there. Perhaps it seemed to me that I had several more lives to live and could not spare any more time for that one.
  2. I left Xerox for the non-profit sector because it was clear to me that only public/private partnerships can pull off a turnaround plan at the scale we need to tackle global poverty.
  3. I legitimately wanted to know if Mayor Bloomberg was going to ban large margaritas that I cry over while on a date alone at Dallas BBQ as a part of his controversial soda ban.
  4. I let my personal feelings take care of themselves. I find that works better.
  5. I let people see the cracks in my life. We can’t be phony. We’ve got to keep it real.
  6. I lift pretty heavy for my body weight, and I don’t do any of that girly stuff like cardio or any light weights. I go really heavy, and that intimidates some guys. I enjoy that.
  7. I like a drama.
  8. I like a high boot on a girl.
  9. I like a man who grins when he fights.
  10. I like acting, but I like filmmaking better. I went to film school. I want to make films.
  11. I like acting when I can pick my own roles, and I do. It’s fun. I like being creative, and it’s a creative process.
  12. I like actors very much, but to marry one would be like marrying your brother. You look too much alike in the mirror.
  13. I like actors who, when you see them on screen, you sense a person, not just an actor.
  14. I like all of McClure’s pickles, but my personal favorites are the spicy ones.
  15. I like America, just as everybody else does. I love America, I gotta say that. But America will be judged.
  16. I like animals. I like natural history. The travel bit is not the important bit. The travel bit is what you have to do in order to go and look at animals.
  17. I like animals.
  18. I like Aurora, ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ because she’s just sleeping and looking pretty and waiting for boys to come kiss her. Sounds like a good life – lots of naps and cute boys fighting dragons to come kiss you.
  19. I like Badshah’s songs, as they are very cool, catchy, and very young. I think that’s very important… It’s connecting with the youth.
  20. I like being a part of something. I like participating and being part of a group.
  21. I like being able to be on the inside of music, rather than on the outside listening to it.
  22. I like being able to walk or ride my bike to restaurants and do different things.
  23. I like being busy and juggling a lot of things at the same time. I get bored easily, so I need to do a lot.
  24. I like being infamous. I think it is safe being a cult.
  25. I like being married. It’s an institution that I like.
  26. I like Beyonce’s music – some of it, not all of it.
  27. I like birthday cake. It’s so symbolic. It’s a tempting symbol to load with something more complicated than just ‘Happy birthday!’ because it’s this emblem of childhood and a happy day.
  28. I like Bobby Flay’s attitude and his approach towards food. I think he’s just passionate and very honest. I find him very honest about food and cooking and ingredients and I admire that because I think that it’s easy to get away from that for various reasons.
  29. I like books that aren’t just lovely but that have memories in themselves. Just like playing a song, picking up a book again that has memories can take you back to another place or another time.
  30. I like ‘Bootylicious,’ ‘Survivor’ – my little granddaughter loves ‘Survivor.’
  31. I like boring things.
  32. I like both antireligious and traditional Catholic imagery.
  33. I like Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm because I don’t need a mirror to reapply. But I definitely treat myself with face lotion – I use La Mer.
  34. I like candidates who tell me something that is going to make a difference to me.
  35. I like cappuccino, actually. But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all.
  36. I like chicken a lot because chicken is generous – that is to say, it’s obedient. It will do whatever you tell it to do.
  37. I like Christian Bale. I’ve heard he’s a big fan of mine, but I certainly reciprocate. I think he’s really very good.
  38. I like Church furniture.
  39. I like Cinderella, I really do. She has a good work ethic. I appreciate a good, hard-working gal. And she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end, and I’m a big shoe girl.
  40. I like collecting fedoras. Whenever I go abroad for shows, I always look to buy one.
  41. I like comedies in general.
  42. I like company lunches because I think going out wastes valuable time; plus, a lot of good ideas come up over lunch.
  43. I like control.
  44. I like crafts that are made out of necessity because they’re a little naive – you made it because you needed it.
  45. I like crafts that come out of poverty or necessity. There used to be hobby shops where you’d get your supplies, and then you’d use your imagination.
  46. I like dresses for night; I like after-party more than party. I like the mystery; I like the dream, like fantasy dresses. I think, also, that you make women dream.
  47. I like either skinny jeans or the ripped, casual, super-sloppy boyfriend jeans. A lot of ripped jeans. They are so early 2000, but they are so cute, I love them. I love surfer jeans, too!
  48. I like entertaining people. I really miss it.
  49. I like every girl. Every kind of girl that there is, I like.
  50. I like everything. Boyish girls, girlish boys, the heavy and the skinny. Which is a problem when I’m walking down the street.
  51. I like everything I do to have some kind of meaning.
  52. I like feeling my way into different minds and experiences. It comes naturally and always has.
  53. I like figuring out where I need to be mentally so that I’m not thinking about the camera and that it’s second nature. I want to get to a place where I can exist within the confines of what you can do with filmmaking and not have to think about it.
  54. I like flesh. I do! Something to hold.
  55. I like food to be really simple but have a lot of technique all the same.
  56. I like, for instance, ‘Serpico.’ I enjoyed playing Serpico because Frank Serpico was there. He existed. He was a real life person and I could – I could embody him. I could, you know, I could work and get to know him and have him help me with the text, the script and become him. It’s almost like a painter having a model to become.
  57. I like gaps; all my stories have gaps. It seems this is the way people’s lives present themselves.
  58. I like gardening – it’s a place where I find myself when I need to lose myself.
  59. I like going everywhere. And I love starting new things.
  60. I like going to Church for aesthetic reasons, rather than spiritual ones.
  61. I like grass, I enjoy it and it suits my game.
  62. I like grown up comedy.
  63. I like having my hair and face done, but I’m not going to lose weight because someone tells me to. I make music to be a musician not to be on the cover of Playboy.
  64. I like having the freedom to dress as I desire.
  65. I like having young assistants in my office; they have energy, and I spend time with them to make sure they understand what we’re doing. By investing in them, I’m investing in the magazine. All over ‘Vogue,’ ‘Teen Vogue,’ and ‘Men’s Vogue,’ there are people who have been through not only my office but also many other offices at ‘Vogue.’
  66. I like Hollywood movies. I like them like I like to eat scrambled eggs; I like them for fun.
  67. I like Honey Singh. I love the music that he does.
  68. I like ice hockey, but it’s a frustrating game to watch. It’s hard to keep your eyes on both the puck and the players and too much time passes between scoring in hockey. There are usually more fights than there are points.
  69. I like intelligent women. When you go out, it shouldn’t be a staring contest.
  70. I like it now when kids stare at me, because it is a way of starting a dialogue. And it is far better than them not looking at you at all. Nothing is worse than not being seen.
  71. I like it when stories are left open.
  72. I like Italian movies. I was frequently there in the ’60s, in Rome and the vicinity. It was a great period in life. I was very influenced by their stuff.
  73. I like Jacques Derrida; I think he’s funny. I like my philosophy with a few jokes and puns. I know that that offends other philosophers; they think he’s not taking things seriously, but he comes up with some marvellous puns. Why shouldn’t you have a bit of fun while dealing with the deepest issues of the mind?
  74. I like Jay Z, Journey, and Kings of Leon.
  75. I like L.A. because of the light. The light makes me feel so good. It’s really beautiful. And there’s something about L.A. being so spread out that gives you a feeling of freedom. Light and freedom.
  76. I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
  77. I like looking nice, but I always put comfort over fashion. I don’t find thin girls attractive; be happy and healthy. I’ve never had a problem with the way I look. I’d rather have lunch with my friends than go to a gym.
  78. I like Louis C.K., Chris Rock. Old schools like Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy.
  79. I like ‘love’ songs, however cheesy that might sound.
  80. I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe – because, like Spinoza’s God, it won’t love us in return.
  81. I like men with quick wit, good conversation and a great sense of humour. I love banter. I want a man to like me for me – I want him to be authentic.
  82. I like movies about failing.
  83. I like moving, challenging myself.
  84. I like Muhammad a lot, because he’s like us more than anybody else. Jesus is just so exalted, and Buddha is just so exalted, it’s almost beyond our reach.
  85. I like my airplane. It’s as much a part of me as anything but my wife and kids.
  86. I like my body when it is with your body. It is so quite new a thing. Muscles better and nerves more.
  87. I like my life. I’ve had a good life. I think the reason is my parents taught me that life is a burden. But if you take it one day at a time, it’s an easy burden.
  88. I like my name. My mom named me after a song by the 1970s group Bread. So, it’s meaningful, and I like the song. It’s a love song – kind of – but it’s kind of depressing and dark.
  89. I like my parents but they are just not good parents. They are nice enough people. I’m not interested in hurting their feelings.
  90. I like new technology.
  91. I like Nine Inch Nails, and I like hip-hop.
  92. I like Nirvana, but I couldn’t say that I was influenced by them. I like to tell a story.
  93. I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.
  94. I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells.
  95. I like not being noticed. It has been a struggle because I love performing, but if I’m in a group of people and someone has a bigger personality, I’m like, ‘Go ahead, and have fun!’
  96. I like not fair terms and a villain’s mind.
  97. I like older people; I think older people have a lot of flavor.
  98. I like people and I like them to like me, but I wear my heart where God put it, on the inside.
  99. I like people who shake other people up and make them feel uncomfortable.
  100. I like people who tell stories. I like storytellers. A lot of my songs are misconceived as being auto-biographical when they’re not because I write in the first person.
  101. I like people who would rather something be discovered than shoved in your face.
  102. I like performing. I like partnering with an audience.
  103. I like persons better than principles, and I like persons with no principles better than anything else in the world.
  104. I like pin-up girls. I’m more of a boy than a girl. I’m not a lesbian, though – not before a sambuca anyway.
  105. I like playing tennis. I’ve always enjoyed the process of being a tennis player; I’m just not sure that I enjoyed the travel at the end, and my body didn’t recover from the day-to-day grind.
  106. I like playwriting because it’s rooted in a single location with actors standing talking to each other.
  107. I like poems and keep sharing them online.
  108. I like radio and live performing stuff. I don’t like the television stuff as much.
  109. I like reading… French, Russian classics – Gogol, Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Flaubert. I also like Hemingway, Virginia Woolf.
  110. I like ‘Rocky Horror.’
  111. I like romantic dates – going on a long walk in Central Park and then taking the subway downtown and going out to eat and ordering oysters. After that, you walk around again and talk.
  112. I like romanticizing romance.
  113. I like Ryan Gosling as an actor. I watch all of his movies, and he’s Canadian and I just like his swag. I read his interviews and I’m a big fan of his.
  114. I like seeing what the comedian thinks is funny, not just what they think I’ll think is funny.
  115. I like silence. Aesthetically, I feel strangled by the fast cutting and a wall of sound. And I think showing black people thinking onscreen is radical.
  116. I like sitting and writing with my buddies.
  117. I like so many different directors: Scorsese, Coppola, Cassavetes, Jarmusch, Gus van Sant, Woody Allen and the greats like Fellini, Bergman, Tarkovsky and among current filmmakers von Trier, Ang Lee, Wong Kar-wai.
  118. I like someone I can have fun with and who can be more laid-back than I am, because it calms me down.
  119. I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.
  120. I like strong women. Physical women.
  121. I like surprises.
  122. I like sweaters. I have a sweater obsession, I guess.
  123. I like television. I still believe that television is the most powerful form of communication on Earth – I just hate what is being done with it.
  124. I like telling stories, and I tell stories that interest me. It would be boring to have to go to nothing but the best restaurants. That would be a misery to me.
  125. I like that I’ve been through things, that when something happens, it resonates with something that already happened. It’s not that things like loss are more or less painful. But they’re deeper. I find that fascinating.
  126. I like that ‘Mad Men’ is now an adjective I use to describe clothing when I’m shopping: ‘I like this top. It’s very ‘Mad Men.’
  127. I like that Pilates compromises the mind and body. It’s not just about being able to run around the block a few times. It’s about alleviating stress and controlling breathing. It’s about being balanced.
  128. I like the acting. It’s how I started, and I sort of feel that if I don’t give it a little shot now, and I go back, then I’m pretty much done with it. I mean, at what age am I going to do it at? Although, when you see Christopher Plummer and Max von Sydow doing it, I guess the answer is 80.
  129. I like the aesthetics of the Church.
  130. I like the anonymity that directors can have about their films.
  131. I like the brand Band of Outsiders. Their suits are cut really slim, for smaller framed gentlemen.
  132. I like the concept of dressing people. I used to not care whether people bought the clothes or not, but I kind of like it now. I wouldn’t label that commercialism; it’s more like I do this work because I want people to wear it.
  133. I like the desert for short periods of time, from inside a car, with the windows rolled up, and the doors locked. I prefer beach resorts with room service.
  134. I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
  135. I like the Edinburgh Film Festival, and I’ve liked what I’ve experienced of Glasgow’s Film Festival too.
  136. I like the fact that Melbourne always seems to support their chefs and promote them in ways I find really admirable.
  137. I like The Four Freshmen, anything with good harmonies, some Beach Boys. I like the girl groups as well, like The Dixie Cups and all that.
  138. I like the freedom of podcasting. With podcasting you can really mess around with the form and the format. You can do as much time as you like without having to pause for commercials.
  139. I like the good life too much, I’m not good at going on stage night after night and on wet Wednesday afternoons.
  140. I like the guitar-driven music of Nirvana at its peak. At that point, I thought there was a lot of really exciting music coming out.
  141. I like the guys who wrote their own stuff and were able to perform it, like Seth Rogen. He popped off so young. When he did ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin,’ and he was a co-producer on the movie, I was like, ‘Oh my God: that’s exactly what I want to do.’
  142. I like the idea of a place that is dealing with painful, messy, frightening, and very human events that is also so beautiful and ethereal.
  143. I like the idea of amending the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include a ban of discrimination based on sexual orientation. It would be simple. It would be straightforward.
  144. I like the idea of defying the convention of what it is to be in your 40s, or 50s, or 60s.
  145. I like the idea of infiltrating an area that is not really exposed to me or my work.
  146. I like the idea of making a big, fun, adventure type of movie.
  147. I like the idea of putting your Christmas wish list up and letting people share it.
  148. I like the idea of working in different genres and transcending genres and hopefully finding success, and ultimately make movies people like.
  149. I like the possibility of failure. I don’t want to be in a comfortable zone.
  150. I like the silent church before the service begins, better than any preaching.
  151. I like the simplicity of soloing. You’ve got no gear, no partner. You never climb better than when you free-solo.
  152. I like The Smiths – I would love to do a song with The Smiths, because they are so sonically different.
  153. I like the south of Spain, notably for the Moorish influence and the weather.
  154. I like the tragedies way more than the comedies because they’re so universal.
  155. I like the values associated with a medical family – common sense, being practical but also thoughtful.
  156. I like the Victory rolls, beehive, pompadour – all of that stuff. It’s just cool. And actually, with ethnic hair, oddly enough, it works so well because I don’t have to tease my hair to get body.
  157. I like the word ‘autopilot’ more than I like the word ‘self-driving.’ ‘Self-driving’ sounds like it’s going to do something you don’t want it to do. ‘Autopilot’ is a good thing to have in planes, and we should have it in cars.
  158. I like things in their proper places.
  159. I like things that are over the top and subtle at the same time.
  160. I like things that I feel comfortable in.
  161. I like things to be orderly.
  162. I like thinking big. If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.
  163. I like to accept it all, the negative and the positive.
  164. I like to be a very fair person.
  165. I like to be at the base/bottom of a pyramid. So i can say to the one at the top that I will leave if I want…
  166. I like to be human and not lose myself in becoming a mannequin, which people in showbiz are accused of.
  167. I like to be in pain when I’m getting massaged. That way I know I’m getting my money’s worth.
  168. I like to be real private; you don’t always want everyone around you – even when they like you.
  169. I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.
  170. I like to believe that rather than destroy icons, I make new ones.
  171. I like to buy a new fragrance for each film. I’ll go out in the city where I’m filming and snap it up. The one I have for ‘Into the Woods’ is Terry de Gunzburg Flagrant Delice, which I bought in London.
  172. I like to buy girls shoes and jewelry. I buy stupidly expensive shoes. I got Louboutins for my mom and my girlfriend before. My mom was like, ‘I can’t wear these; they’re too high.’ I was like, ‘Mom, you have to try them – they’re so cool. They’re red snakeskin!’ She still wears them every so often, but she can’t walk in them.
  173. I like to decide the night before Thanksgiving that I’m gonna do it, and I’ll see what riff raff is around. Then I get that last-minute surge of energy. But if I had two weeks to plan, sometimes I wish I wasn’t doing it. But very seldom does that happen.
  174. I like to do a lot of cardio.
  175. I like to do a lot of research for my films and live my character.
  176. I like to do drama, something about life that could be disappointing.
  177. I like to do things that I want to see myself. With ‘Defending Your Life,’ I wanted to see some aspect of death other than angels and the thing that ‘Ghost’ was about, because that didn’t make any sense to me. So that’s the reason: it fills a hole.
  178. I like to entertain at home, to live beautifully but comfortably.
  179. I like to entertain in all aspects. When you’re with somebody and you’re out, you want to be entertained. I like to be around entertaining people. Even if they’re bored, and you’re in a convalescent home, there’s something entertaining about that, in a way.
  180. I like to feel blonde all over.
  181. I like to feel the butterflies in the stomach, I like to go home and have a restless night and wonder how I’m going to be able to accomplish this feat, get jittery. That hunger and those butterflies in the stomach are very essential for all creative people.
  182. I like to get real pretty.
  183. I like to get up and get out. Otherwise you end up kicking about, and it’s easy to flick the telly on; then before you know it, it is 11 A.M. and you haven’t done anything.
  184. I like to go on really nice dates. I’ve made some money, but I don’t spend it on anything besides my rent. But I go to nice dinners. And I like to go with a girl.
  185. I like to go somewhere where I learn something I didn’t know before, like the Dry Tortugas between Florida and Cuba.
  186. I like to have fun but my fun is different from other people’s fun.
  187. I like to have guns around. I don’t like to carry them.
  188. I like to have my breakfast in bed, and I use that time to watch the recorded shows on my TiVo. I seldom watch shows in real time – I’m always at work.
  189. I like to hide behind the characters I play. Despite the public perception, I am a very private person who has a hard time with the fame thing.
  190. I like to joke that I probably hold the world record for rejection letters. Yes, the truth is that I was fed up of being rejected repeatedly, and self-publication was an act of defiance at traditional publishing. But life works in strange ways.
  191. I like to just make things… If I have the TV on, I’m not just going to sit there. I want to do something with my hands; I’ve always got a project. Or I get a small group of people over, and I say, ‘Let’s make these things today.’
  192. 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.
  193. I like to keep fit.
  194. I like to keep people guessing.
  195. I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
  196. I like to look at the glass half full.
  197. I like to look good, my friend.
  198. I like to make films, but the only reason I do is because I’m a very bad musician.
  199. I like to make films where I learn along the way, like the audience.
  200. I like to make pasta with puttanesca sauce and arugula salad.
  201. I like to make people laugh and have fun.
  202. I like to make songs that are based on concepts.
  203. I like to make things, but I looked at old craft books on weaving or mosaics or whatever, I’m like, ‘I don’t really know anything about that stuff.’
  204. I like to mimic accents. I don’t even know if that’s a talent. That’s just a weird thing that I do.
  205. I like to play football, read some books, study.
  206. I like to play unattractive people who think they’re pretty. You can do what you want, but I prefer to look interesting.
  207. I like to push the limit to how much air we can put in the football, even go over what they allow you to do and see if the officials take air out of it.
  208. I like to rap about things that are funny but mostly things that are relatable. I remember there was this one song with Ja Rule, and I forgot, exactly, but it was with Ashanti, and there’s a line in it that was like, ‘She hit me up on AIM.’ But that wasn’t the actual line; it was something else, but I was like, ‘Oh my God, he uses AIM!’
  209. I like to rate myself as a performer upfront, both in films as well as in television.
  210. I like to read away as much of the afternoon as possible, until real life rears its ugly head.
  211. I like to read in the bathtub. Ideally, that bathtub would be located on a small Greek island.
  212. I like to remind myself how hard acting is. I do parts in friends’ stuff.
  213. I like to say I sit alone in my room, and I fight the language. I am wildly obsessive. I can’t let something go if I think it’s wrong.
  214. I like to see a film and then start scoring it in my mind while doing something unrelated. You just grasp a film and start working, and something unpredictable comes out from a third element. The mind, the more active it is, the more productive it is.
  215. I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
  216. I like to sing ballads the way Eddie Fisher does and the way Perry Como does. But the way I’m singing now is what makes the money.
  217. I like to speak on matters which matter to human beings, and almost everything matters to human beings.
  218. I like to take a day off and enjoy fast food for what it is. I have to say that in New York, I’m really partial about taco trucks. I mean, I really can’t handle it. There is something about catching all those ingredients piled on top of each other: it puts me in a tizzy. I love it. I’m kind of a taco truck junkie.
  219. I like to take it easy.
  220. I like to think I’m like the guy who goes to the office Christmas party Friday night, insults some people, but still has his job Monday morning.
  221. I like to think I’m un-categorisable.
  222. I like to think of film-making not just as an act of personal self-aggrandisement but rather as an act of public service.
  223. I like to use the hard times in the past to motivate me today.
  224. I like to walk around with bare feet and I don’t like to comb my hair.
  225. I like to watch ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ when I’d doing cardio. But, sometimes I do need good music to get me moving. I like high energy songs by artists like Justin Timberlake and Rihanna.
  226. I like to watch MTV for escapist pleasure, but when I saw Snooki, I saw my twin. I couldn’t lose myself in the show anymore because there I was.
  227. I like to windsurf and ski, and most of all I love to ride horses. The wilder and faster the better! If I’m presented with a fast horse or a fast boat, I still get that shiver of excitement and I cannot resist. Luckily I never seem to have any accidents, and thank God for that.
  228. I like to work fast. I despise not having the right tool or, worse, knowing I have it but not being able to find it. It’s a pointless delay that wrecks my pace – and mood.
  229. I like to work out every day. I run, walk, do machines. I’m not neurotic about food. My rule is, don’t let yourself get over a certain weight. If you gain 5lb, stop before it gets worse.
  230. I like to work when I’m not working – do something that may not be considered work, but to me it’s work. Getting exercise by going to the grocery store.
  231. I like to write about painting because I think visually. I see my writing as blocks of color before it forms itself. I think I also care about painting because I’m not musical. Painting to me is not a metaphor for writing, but something people do that can never be reduced to words.
  232. I like to write and draw everything with sharpies. I even got one with my own name on it!
  233. I like to write in coffee shops in countries in which languages I do not speak are spoken. That way, you’re surrounded by the buzz of humanity, but you aren’t distracted by people’s conversations.
  234. I like unique little boutique hotels, such as Blakes in London.
  235. I like Valentino a lot – they never use actresses in their campaigns.
  236. I like very girly, retro inspired, feminine, floral things. I’m not very edgy.
  237. I like very much to ride horses. I like soccer, I have had a passion for boxing since I was a child, although it would be stupid for me to box.
  238. I like very, very dramatic eyeliner: I take it all the way out to my eyebrows.
  239. I like voice-over in films, and most of my films have been voice-over films.
  240. I like watercolours. I like acrylic paint… a little bit. I like house paint. I like oil-based paint, and I love oil paint. I love the smell of turpentine and I like that world of oil paint very, very, very much.
  241. I like what L’Oreal stands for, which is women of worth.
  242. I like where I live here, in London.
  243. I like women. I love women.
  244. I like working on my birthday, so I always do.
  245. I like working on things that are very different and that involve different disguises.
  246. I like working. That’s when I’m feeling my best. And the people around me know that. My wife knows that.
  247. I like working with people. I believe change can only come through collaboration.
  248. I like working with the public, and I like that it’s really hard work.
  249. I like working with the public, I like working with food, and I like making cash.
  250. I like writing and don’t confine myself to just the words or just the music. But I don’t particularly write songs with myself in mind.
  251. I like writing idealistically, romantically and swashbucklingly.
  252. I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
  253. I liked 35 and in both my novels that is the age of the lead characters. I tried making them my age but they just seemed to keep moaning about stuff.
  254. I liked being a minor because you can’t get into trouble. Now I just have to try and behave myself.
  255. I liked Hans Christian Andersen because the tales were so dark and tragic.
  256. I liked his ability to deal with a lot of the negativity that surrounded him. Even though he was in a world that he didn’t want to be in, he still saw the bigger picture.
  257. I liked Lady Gaga’s meat dress. It was funny.
  258. I liked myself better when I wasn’t me.
  259. I liked to write from the time I was about 12 or 13. I loved to read. And since I only spoke to my brother, I would write down my thoughts. And I think I wrote some of the worst poetry west of the Rockies. But by the time I was in my 20s, I found myself writing little essays and more poetry – writing at writing.
  260. I liked Vittorio De Sica a lot, and I got to work with him once in a segment movie. He was a great director. He was a very charismatic character and a guy I watched a lot when he was directing.
  261. I listen to crazy, robust rock music where they sing their faces off, and soul music, which can be similar.
  262. I listen to music that is of our time and I just get angry.
  263. I listen to my old records and I think, ‘How did I ever get on the radio?’
  264. I listen to NPR when I listen to the radio, but I don’t listen to the radio that much. You know, I listen to Garrison Keillor, I listen to ‘Prairie Home Companion.’
  265. I live a good life but a pretty simply life. I just store all my money under my mattress. My wife and I travel, and I bought my dream car, the Cobra.
  266. I live a very secluded life, a very contemplative life and a very meditative one. That is my ideal life.
  267. I live for fashion.
  268. I live for my children, so my number one rule is I won’t go away from home for more than two weeks.
  269. I live in a crazy time.
  270. I live in California, so I do stand-up paddle board, which is a killer workout. I also run, about four miles every three days.
  271. I live in Paris, yet Monaco, where I spend a lot of time, holds a very special place in my heart.
  272. I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.
  273. I live in the moment, and I reflect later.
  274. I live in the moment.
  275. I live making comics. Comics is an industrial art but less suffering, because comics are for young people who are more adventurous. I do that. I live off comics, and then I write books, but when you want movies, you cannot make movies without money.
  276. I live many lives at once.
  277. I live my life like anybody else, and people choose to write about mine. And what they write I can’t control – when they write lies at least – because the laws can’t really protect you unless you can prove malicious intent. So I just choose not to read it.
  278. I live now on borrowed time, waiting in the anteroom for the summons that will inevitably come. And then – I go on to the next thing, whatever it is. One doesn’t, luckily, have to bother about that.
  279. I live on the West Coast of the United States, and yet the air that I breathe is sometimes the same air that was being breathed in China the day before.
  280. I live out of my van, which gives me a first-hand appreciation for power and lighting. A few years ago, I rebuilt the interior of my van to include solar panels and a battery that powers LEDs for lighting and allows me to charge my phone and laptop.
  281. I live quietly at home among my family and friends.
  282. I live with a bunch of yuppies and models.
  283. I live with some of my best friends from high school, very commune-like, in my house. It’s my hippie way of life.
  284. I lived in Camden, Primrose Hill and Kentish Town for 10 years.
  285. I lived in Chicago for a few years and got a sense of – kind of that broad-shouldered, windy, um, stern, Midwestern, warm-slash-passive aggressive, wonderful – every adjective I can think of, very cold.
  286. I lived in Paris when I was 20 and 21, and actually knew people that worked for the government there, that talked about terrorism in the country 20 years ago.
  287. I lived in Portland for almost 20 years, and that’s where my eldest daughter went to college. I missed the sunshine. I grew up in L.A.
  288. I lived with my mom in a really small apartment. My bedroom was like in the living room. That’s why I still love to sleep on couches now.
  289. I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible.
  290. I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.
  291. I long for the time when all human history is taught as one history, because it really is.
  292. I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.
  293. I long to get back into theater.
  294. I look after people.
  295. I look around at my peers, and I’m so blown away by their talent and their beauty and their cool style, as well as their ability to be an actress and be a movie star and be good at it. I mean, they’re so good, and we’re all trying to get the same parts.
  296. I look at all my projects as a stair step to the next. My goal is to always get better and better.
  297. I look at American movies, the big muscles, and try to apply that to Chinese film-making.
  298. I look at being a capitalist businessperson like riding a bike – if I go too slowly, I’ll fall over. Or it’s kind of like a shark: if I stop swimming, I’ll just die.
  299. I look at Jerusalem as being a beacon for the three monotheistic religions.
  300. I look at Jessica Alba and think she’s got a great body. I think that’s what women are supposed to look like.
  301. I look at my books the way parents look at their children. The fact that one becomes more successful than the others doesn’t make me love the less successful one any less.
  302. I look at myself like a show dog. I’ve got to keep her clipped and trimmed and in good shape.
  303. I look better with a tan, but I’ve never gone the fake route. I don’t need to – I have good foreign genes: half Spanish, half Hungarian.
  304. I look for my opportunities, not trying to go outside of my genuine realm, because leadership has to be genuine and authentic.
  305. I look for strong people. I don’t like people who’ll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue and disagree and have a point of view that’s reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to ‘The Standard.’
  306. I look for the dark story, where something secret was done. I read and read and pick up the trail of a true story. I use nothing but true stories. They are so much better than phony ones.
  307. I look forward to a great future for America – a future in which our country will match its military strength with our moral restraint, its wealth with our wisdom, its power with our purpose.
  308. I look forward to death with great anticipation, to meeting God face to face.
  309. I look forward to Pond’s products to deliver better skincare for girls everywhere.
  310. I look forward to trying the Internet.
  311. I look just like the girls next door… if you happen to live next door to an amusement park.
  312. I look like a woman, but I think like a man.
  313. I look like my mother but behave like my father.
  314. I look my best after an entire hair and makeup team has spent hours perfecting me. When do I feel my best? When I haven’t looked in a mirror for days, and I’m doing things that make me happy.
  315. I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won’t presume to probe into the faults of others.
  316. I look really good in a scuba suit.
  317. I look suspicious if I dress in sort of benign clothes, going to the airport.
  318. I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
  319. I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.
  320. I looked for a very long time, knowing that it had to happen, but it took me a long time to find someone with the same background and whatnot and I finally found him.
  321. I lose my wallet all the time, and I break my phone all the time.
  322. I lost my spleen, I lost the hearing in my left ear, so I had a lot of internal organ damage.
  323. I lost my voice for the first time. I was so bummed out, but it happens to every singer at some point in their career. I don’t think most people understand, but I sing every night and sometimes we do five shows in a row, which is really bad for your voice.
  324. I lost the life that I knew, and I really had to rethink my future and think about my core values and the things that I love, and my passion, and that’s really what helped me move forward. Also, for me just being grateful for what I had in my life versus on focusing on what I was losing, that really helped as well.
  325. I lost twins at 14 weeks, and I had to have an D and C on my birthday.
  326. I love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly.
  327. I love a card. You know, cards? At birthdays? I collect them.
  328. I love a film where I get squished by two dumpsters or I fly through the air.
  329. I love a great pair of jeans and a nice blouse.
  330. I love a Hebrew National hot dog with an ice-cold Corona – no lime. If the phone rings, I won’t answer until I’m done.
  331. I love a mix of kickboxing, gym, yoga, Pilates, horse riding, and dancing. I also do skinny rappelling, which is a quick cardio workout with music and lighting, so it’s fun.
  332. I love a natural look in pictures.
  333. I love a pair of sexy heels with jeans, a nice jacket, or a little dress.
  334. I love a smart, well-written show, and ’30 Rock,’ well, you can’t get any better than that. Tina Fey poos funny. There’s nothing that she does that isn’t funny. That show is an example of how brilliant she is. It’s so smart. They’ve done some brilliant commentary about the ‘Housewives’ with ‘Queen of Jordan,’ their show-within-the-show.
  335. I love a song that will usher in the very presence of God. Then there’s no Andrae; there’s no fabulous band, there’s no greatness of ours. I’ve had hundreds of concerts like that, and that’s what I try to achieve.
  336. I love accents – I wish I could find an accent for every one of my characters. It makes it so much easier when I don’t have to hear my own voice.
  337. I love acting and certainly won’t give it up, but it’s part of a bigger canvas for me now.
  338. I love acting like I’m in love. It’s a very positive thing.
  339. I love action movies.
  340. I love all kinds of insects, and I’ve heard Australia has some really interesting bugs.
  341. I love all music.
  342. I love all the arts – so museums, theatre, music, walks near trees or by the ocean, time with people, psychological readings.
  343. I love America, it’s a much more permissive place.
  344. I love America.
  345. I love and respect women. I work mostly with women.
  346. I love animals and they’re very easy to look after when they’re dead.
  347. I love ‘Anne of Green Gables.’ I have for years. That’s one of my favourite things. She’s such a can-do kind of girl; that’s why I’m crazy about her.
  348. I love any excuse to work with a mortar and pestle.
  349. I love art and finding different bits and bobs for the apartment; so, I’m adding all my personal touches to the house.
  350. I love audiences.
  351. I love Australia! I got a boot thrown at me there.
  352. I love being active.
  353. I love being an advocate for women as we get older so that we can feel comfortable with ourselves. It’s all about being healthy for me now.
  354. I love being an advocate for women as we get older so that we can feel comfortable with ourselves.
  355. I love being busy, and I love having a lot going on; it’s exciting.
  356. I love being busy.
  357. I love being creative.
  358. I love being home at Christmastime.
  359. I love being in Mumbai and want to continue being here.
  360. I love being with my children. They’re fascinating people.
  361. I love big business!
  362. I love ‘Blackadder,’ but history it certainly ain’t.
  363. I love Bob Dylan. Who doesn’t? He tapped into some kind of vein and it keeps on keeping on. There’s nobody like him. He’s unique, and just… way out cool.
  364. I love body language.
  365. I love Bono. I really respect what he has done for Africa and how he has used his fame to do good in the world. I hope I can do half as much in my life.
  366. I love both real and fake jewelry. My kids make me necklaces, and I wear those, too. Every day, I wear my gold wedding band and the Cartier watch my husband gave me.
  367. I love cake. I love pie. I love potato chips. I love salt. I do not want yogurt, plain yogurt. It’s healthy. ‘Why don’t you like it?’ Because it tastes like bad breath.
  368. I love California, I practically grew up in Phoenix.
  369. I love Casio G-Shocks. My dream is to have watches in all colours. I also love gold watches. I’d like to have a diamond-studded gold watch some day.
  370. I love cereals. We must have 10 to 15 boxes. But if I’m being honest, I have Fruit Loops and Lucky Charms hidden behind the healthier ones.
  371. I love children and I love family and I love that interaction. Because I had a really close relationship with my mother, I understand that deep powerful love, and it’s so beautiful. To be a mother to a child is the most brilliant gift; it’s gorgeous.
  372. I love Chris Brown. He’s a superstar. He’s one of the best singers out there.
  373. I love Christmas, not just because of the presents but because of all the decorations and lights and the warmth of the season.
  374. I love Christmas tree bulbs, and I started putting them in my paintings. You’ve got to plug this painting in, and it’s got a rig in the back, so that each one can be replaced if it burns out.
  375. I love clothes and I love fashion.
  376. I love clothes, so when I wear clothes, they’re usually somebody’s. You know, I’m not wearing Kmart.
  377. I love Coach Koetter.
  378. I love comedy, but I was just obsessed with ‘SNL’ growing up.
  379. I love coming in and changing magazines.
  380. I love coming of age stories that have struggle.
  381. I love community, I love to be around other people. I love to be around other people when everyone’s feeling good and doing their best. Not to just be the only one in the room that’s shining.
  382. I love contrast in music. Being inspired by classical, actually – in high school especially – classical and metal both, I remember having this cool realization that they are really similar. It’s just different instrumentation.
  383. I love cooking. I love having friends around.
  384. I love cop shows and crime books and thrillers, and before I die I’m gonna play a cop.
  385. I love costumes. My dream growing up was always to have my own costume and prop shop.
  386. I love dabbling in various genres and languages.
  387. I love dancing. It’s one of my favorite things in the whole world.
  388. I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
  389. I love different eclectic bands. I love Phoenix and Kimber.
  390. I love discomfort. I mean, my whole life is discomfort. One reason I can never retire is that the idea of just sitting on the beach totally comfortable is not a desideratum in my life. I like ambiguity, I like conflict, I like uncertainly.
  391. I love divas. Madonna, Mariah, Beyonce, Britney.
  392. I love diving into different skins, skins that make me feel deep emotions.
  393. I love doing action.
  394. I love doing film soundtracks and working with directors on how they want the scene to be portrayed on audio as opposed to visual. I like the collaborative effort of working with people.
  395. I love doing kids’ shows, and I love working with kids. I’ve done a lot of it. A lot of people don’t like working with children, but I love it.
  396. I love doing music, and I plan to do it until I die or as long as I can walk to the piano.
  397. I love donating my time and serving other people. Just seeing the faces of people in need light up when they see you… There is no way I can put it into words. You feel like you did something right.
  398. I love eating shabu-shabu in Japan – a kind of beef hotpot. But if you’re talking about authentic, traditional food, then Italian cooking is one of the best in the world.
  399. I love Emma Watson’s makeup a lot. I love Cate Blanchett. I’m biased, though. I love my makeup artist, Julie Harris; she is really phenomenal, but everyone has their technique, and there are incredible-looking girls out there.
  400. I love Eric Clapton.
  401. I love everybody. You have to embrace all facets of humanity; love and accept everyone as being part of yourself.
  402. I love everyone over at Netflix. They’re all fantastic and an absolute joy to work with.
  403. I love everything about my job, except being away from the kids.
  404. I love experimenting with clothes for photo shoots, but when I’m onstage, I want to show people that there are other options. You can just be yourself and still make good music.
  405. I love fashion, and I love how it makes me feel, but it doesn’t rule my life.
  406. I love fashion; I love being able to have fun with it, but I think I need to get a little bit more organised before I ever become a true fashionista.
  407. I love fashion. I think it’s so important, because it’s how you show yourself to the world.
  408. I love fiction that sounds like fact. As a matter of fact, I also like fact that sounds like fiction.
  409. I love fighting back. I love finding allies, and – famously – I enjoy making enemies.
  410. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it.
  411. I love films that are made with almost no budget.
  412. I love folk; that’s a big part of my background.
  413. I love food. I’m not a great cook, but I love to cook, and I like how different it is from writing.
  414. I love food.
  415. I love fools’ experiments. I am always making them.
  416. I love ‘Forrest Gump;’ I like sweet, cheery, happy movies. But it has some dark moments too.
  417. I love fresh vegetables and we always include them in our meals. I don’t force my kids to eat asparagus, but they do eat peas, broccoli, and carrots.
  418. I love Gap for affordable men’s sweaters.
  419. I love getting dressed up and having someone do my make-up and feeling pretty.
  420. I love going to flea markets especially when I am traveling, because I love seeing the stuff of other cultures, handicrafts and things with historical content.
  421. I love going to museums, especially the Met, because there’s always room for discovery, or the Neue Galerie. It’s a great jewel box.
  422. I love great acting, as nerdy as that sounds.
  423. I love great journalism. I appreciate it. I love a good, you know, I love good news stories. I love great books. I love great articles. I appreciate them so much, and they’ve been part of my education as a woman.
  424. I love great lyrics, and I love the way it could shape a tune into a very unpredictable one, and I also like taking a great melody and putting lyrics into it.
  425. I love Haagen Daaz Caramel Cone, or the Ben and Jerry’s Strawberry Cheesecake. Pairs well with anything.
  426. I love hanging out with friends and family.
  427. I love ‘Harry Potter’ and JK Rowling – don’t laugh at me!
  428. I love having a boyfriend but need to be secure on my own first.
  429. I love having an unlimited supply of cocoa butter.
  430. I love hearing my audience breathe.
  431. I love her too, but our neuroses just don’t match.
  432. I love hip-hop, and everybody knows that.
  433. I love history. I love art. I like to mix it all together, but in the end it somehow has to all make sense.
  434. I love hockey. That’s actually one of my favorite sports.
  435. I love horse-riding – I have three back home in the U.K.
  436. I love ‘House of Cards.’ I would watch Kevin Spacey read the phone book.
  437. I love Indian, Italian and Mexican food. And if it’s a romantic type of thing, I like a good French restaurant.
  438. I love insane, stupid comedy, but I can only make it work if it’s a character I can give some history to and make real. Like the guy I played in ‘Little Miss Sunshine.’ He’s a maniac, but to me he was absolutely believable.
  439. I love insults, devastating takedowns, things that could be described by Twitter hacks as ‘shots fired,’ and funny ad hominem attacks.
  440. I love it when a few simple ingredients come together on a plate, and I think, ‘Wow, that’s a dish.’
  441. I love it when Muslims go to war with each other, as I do when the Christians do, because it shows there’s no such thing as the Christian world and the Islamic world. That’s all crap.
  442. I love it when other people can come up with ideas and tell me what to do.
  443. I love it when people are able to interpret thoughts and feelings on fabric or some kind of material.
  444. I love Jason Bateman. He’s so funny.
  445. I love Jimmy Fallon; he’s always a great time.
  446. I love Karl Lagerfeld. I worship him. I was brought up in Paris, and my mum used to wear a lot of Chanel. I love the brand.
  447. I love keeping a connection with everyone I’ve worked with.
  448. I love Kelly Clarkson.
  449. I love kids. But that’s such a big commitment. And it seems long-term. It seems like a commitment that you have to stick with. And I just don’t know if I can – it’s too risky. Like, what if I don’t like the kid?
  450. I love laugh lines. It means you’ve had a good life. The most beautiful women – Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Hutton, Ali MacGraw – all embraced the aging process.
  451. I love layers!
  452. I love learning, and I think that curiosity is a wonderful gift.
  453. I love leather jackets, and I am obsessed with it. I carry leather jackets fairly well.
  454. I love life because what more is there?
  455. I love life on the road. I’m in a different city every night and it never gets old.
  456. I love listening to music on holiday, and back in the old days, I used to travel with cassette tapes and a boombox.
  457. I love Los Angeles, and I love Hollywood. They’re beautiful. Everybody’s plastic, but I love plastic. I want to be plastic.
  458. I love, love, love just being hands on at all times in the studio.
  459. I love love songs. But I love pop music as well: Girls Aloud, Kylie, the Spice Girls, East 17, Mika.
  460. I love making movies, but there’s nothing like performing live.
  461. I love making people laugh and feel good, and that’s awesome and special for me to be able to do that, but there really is nothing like kicking ass whether it’s on a major scale, or whether it’s in more of a dramatic fashion. Being physical and taking care of business the old-fashioned way is something that I love doing.
  462. I love mankind; it’s people I can’t stand.
  463. I love market research because you really have an idea of what your consumers are looking for.
  464. I love Marlon Brando and James Dean. That was when it was all about the star and the script. Nowadays, everything has to be action-packed.
  465. I love Maya Rudolph. She’s very multitalented herself.
  466. I love Mickey Mouse more than any woman I have ever known.
  467. I love ‘Modern Family.’ And I love ‘Glee’ – the singing, the music – Jane Lynch just kills me.
  468. I love ‘Modern Family; I think that is a great show. I don’t get to watch tons of TV, but when I do, ‘Sons of Anarchy’ is pretty much the number one, and ‘Modern Family’ is one of my favorites.
  469. I love money because I’ve earned it. I won sixty G’s with my first knockout – and the week before, I was collecting social welfare.
  470. I love music. I listen to a lot of it.
  471. I love music, of course, and many, many, many genres. There are hardly any songs I would say that I hate. There’s a couple, and I don’t even know exactly why I don’t like them.
  472. I love music videos, I really do. I think it’s kind of sad that it’s a dying art form.
  473. I love my apartment in New York.
  474. I love my cats more than I love most people. Probably more than is healthy.
  475. I love my climbing shoes. Virtually all of my big solos have been in the TC Pros. They are the most important thing when I’m soloing.
  476. I love my coaches. Coaches love me.
  477. I love my country. And I would have to renounce my Spanish citizenship to become a U.S. Citizen.
  478. I love my fans in Philadelphia, but this is the hardest place in the world to play in. And I think it’s the hardest place to play in to be a superstar. Just to be the No. 1 guy. All eyes on you – because everybody wants you to be perfect, but not themselves.
  479. I love my heritage! I have my mother, who is an Irish-Italian, and my father who is African, so I have the taste buds of an Italian and the spice of an African.
  480. I love my heritage!
  481. I love my job, but it’s more than that: I need it.
  482. I love my legs.
  483. I love my own music.
  484. I love my pets, and I’m a big animal lover. I also enjoy the nature and countryside.
  485. I love my rabbit, my family rabbit.
  486. I love myself and I am a good person.
  487. I love Neil Young. And he loves me! We have a great relationship.
  488. I love nerdy, cute, quirky boys who don’t take themselves too seriously.
  489. I love New Orleans. I did a movie there right before Katrina.
  490. I love New Orleans physically. I love the trees and the balmy air and the beautiful days. I have a beautiful house here.
  491. I love New York. I’m a guy for whom a New York accent is a comforting thing.
  492. I love New York.
  493. I love novels where not much ‘happens’ but where the interest is in the ideas and analyses of characters.
  494. I love oatmeal. To me, it’s not boring. I agree that ordinary oatmeal is very boring, but not the steel-cut Irish kind – the kind that pops in your mouth when you bite into it in little glorious bursts like a sort of gummy champagne.
  495. I love paint. I like watercolours. I like acrylic paint… a little bit. I like house paint. I like oil-based paint, and I love oil paint. I love the smell of turpentine and I like that world of oil paint very, very, very much.
  496. I love painting and have a need to do it.
  497. I love pancakes, and I actually do love healthy stuff. Like, I love gluten-free or whole-wheat pancakes. Breakfast is my favorite meal.
  498. I love Paris for the million reasons that everybody loves the city. It’s an incredibly romantic and beautiful place.
  499. I love Paul Rudd.
  500. I love people, and the hustle.
  501. I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.
  502. I love perfumes. Every morning when my girlfriend and I come down to the courtyard in our block of flats we’re assailed by the most delicious scent – jasmine round a doorway. It almost makes me swoon.
  503. I love Pilates, I really do, and I do it three times a week because it works well for me.
  504. I love pink, it’s so girly!
  505. I love Pinterest! Pinterest is absolutely phenomenal when you’re trying to come up with a costume design.
  506. I love playing odd roles.
  507. I love poking fun at myself. I have a rather mean sense of humor.
  508. I love producing, writing. I rarely write with other writers unless I have a real great respect for them. Like Burt Bacharach, or Carole Sager, or Stevie Wonder. Somebody like Smokey – like that. Otherwise, I choose to write alone.
  509. I love punk, I love a lot of British Invasion bands, I love garage bands.
  510. I love radio, but it’s a very limited thing today. Everything has to be edited down to 3:59, and too bad if I didn’t make my statement in three minutes and 59 seconds. Everybody’s song has to make its point so quickly.
  511. I love reader mail, and I do read it, but I won’t read hate mail.
  512. I love readings and my readers, but the din of voices of the audience gives me stage fright, and the din of voices inside whisper that I am a fraud, and that the jig is up. Surely someone will rise up from the audience and say out loud that not only am I not funny and helpful, but I’m annoying, and a phony.
  513. I love red bell peppers. Bell peppers in general, really. I like to eat them like apples. They’re so crunchy and delicious.
  514. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report.
  515. I love research. When there’s something that I like, I want to know everything about it. I want to know exactly what was behind it, and where it went from there.
  516. I love ripped jeans! They are flattering. I’m very petite, so I think they make my butt look lovely.
  517. I love roasted beets with goat cheese. I am also a fruit addict.
  518. I love ‘Robot Chicken,’ ‘The Boondocks’ and ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos.’ Then there’s this show called ‘The First 48.’ It’s a documentary about killings where they try and find murderers. They interrogate people and they tell on each other – it’s hilarious.
  519. I love rock women.
  520. I love roller coasters. I don’t get a chance often, but I’ve gone to Magic Mountain and gone on the rides. I love roller coasters.
  521. I love rom-coms, and I was bummed that they sort of stopped making them around the time I was old enough to be in them. But at the same time, I so respected the fact that the genre kind of needed an update. But you know, even when rom-coms were at their hey-day, very few people did it at the level of Nancy Meyers.
  522. I love Sam Mendes, but I went to see ‘Spectre’ with my kid, and the opening scene of the Dia de Muertos party, with this kind of tropical music, in downtown Mexico City, with all these people dancing like it’s the Rio de Janeiro carnival… I had to laugh.
  523. I love San Francisco so much. I call it the Emerald City and have been coming here since 1992. I have a few old friends that live here, and my aunt and uncle live in Oakland. I think it’s a magical city – it’s big, sexy and very ‘cosmo’ with a small-town feel.
  524. I love seeing blank days in my calendar.
  525. I love Simone Rocha. I just think she’s really clever.
  526. I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?
  527. I love songs that are very autobiographical.
  528. I love ‘Sons of Anarchy.’ I was so excited to be able to be on this show, just because I personally watch it. Of course, I come from Disney, and I have a lot of young fans, but I do have fans who have grown with me as well.
  529. I love Steve Carell.
  530. I love stories about people that, whatever situation they’re in, you can relate to them in a way.
  531. I love stories about women.
  532. I love story songs because I’ve always loved books.
  533. I love stuff from the Holy Land. It makes me feel blessed.
  534. I love sundresses and I love shorts.
  535. I love super crispy, almost burned, snapping-crispy bacon.
  536. I love sushi. But after too much of it, it just starts to taste like a dead animal that hasn’t been cooked.
  537. I love teaching.
  538. I love telling stories with images. But I think there’s more to just saying a movie is great visually.
  539. I love the 3D revolution. I love the technology today that continues to push the envelope, continues break the new ground, and continues to raise the bar.
  540. I love the ’60s and sort of wish all design had stopped in 1967. That would be my dream. They were really just nailing it – everyone looked great – but then it started getting a bit slippery after that.
  541. I love the ability to transform because that, for me, is a liberation.
  542. I love the attention but I don’t like too much of it.
  543. I love the attention. I love how I am so loved by the people, especially the girls.
  544. I love the Bible. I read it every day. I spend 10 hours a week studying it. It has affected my life in profound ways. I am inspired when I read it.
  545. I love the Bible.
  546. I love the Black Keys because I love that guy’s voice.
  547. I love the challenge of the game. I love the work. My goal right now is to have a season next year that will make people forget about this one. I’ll use things like this for motivation. I’m pumped. I’m hungry.
  548. I love the characters not knowing everything and the reader knowing more than them. There’s more mischief in that and more room for seriousness, too.
  549. I love the combination of the words ‘spies’ and ‘Balkans.’ It’s like meat and potatoes.
  550. I love the craft of acting, I love learning, I love everything that comes with the new project; the whole process is totally intoxicating to me.
  551. I love the creative process. That’s always been the closest thing to my heart, creating something.
  552. I love the diversity of America. I love the plain, normal sense of humor Americans have. It is not wicked, like in some countries. And I also love how new America is.
  553. I love the feeling of touching the rock, the feeling of my body going up the rock.
  554. I love ‘The Gourmet Cooking School Cookbook’ by Dione Lucas. A huge source of information and inspiration. The book is organized by menu, and the recipes are unusual and exciting.
  555. I love the gray areas, but I like the gray areas as considered by bright, educated, courageous people.
  556. I love the idea of a university as away from capitalist values, where people can do things that don’t immediately have to pay their way. It’s like a monastery in a way, and that beautiful refuge has been destroyed by dogma about what this stuff is for.
  557. I love the idea of living a life that is completely humble and quiet.
  558. I love the idea of numerology, but I don’t really believe in it. But I like thinking about what numbers convey.
  559. I love the idea of trying to do the work of old-fashioned novelists of plotting and of really making you curious about what’s going to happen next and all that, but also trying to load it up with your weird thoughts and opinions.
  560. I love the luxury of the camera. The camera does so much for you. I like the secrets a camera can tell.
  561. I love the masochistic aspect of eating seething, real Sichuan food in Sichuan Province.
  562. I love the melodies in the Old Testament, how preachers highlight them when they read from the Scripture. But I was influenced forever by the New Testament. I love the Beatitudes, informing us that the meek shall inherit the earth.
  563. I love the name of honor, more than I fear death.
  564. I love the natural world – it comes from my culture, which grew out of a people enslaved.
  565. I love the novel of ‘The English Patient’; I think it’s a profoundly beautiful novel. I love the movie of ‘The English Patient’; I think it’s a profoundly beautiful movie. And they’re totally different. You accept each on its own terms, and that’s kind of the ideal.
  566. I love the ‘Percy Jackson’ movies. That was my big break. I love the people I worked with. It was a really magical experience for me.
  567. I love the powerful woman who’s complicated. There’s no push to be one thing or another thing. It’s all human. That’s what you look for as an actor: characters written and portrayed in the most human way possible.
  568. I love the quality, feel and history of film. I love the pictures of the giant cameras and the way it was.
  569. I love the relays. Track is such an individual sport, so it’s fun to do something together.
  570. I love the Ritz.
  571. I love the sea.
  572. I love the short-haired lifestyle.
  573. I love the smell of paper in the morning; it smells like victory.
  574. I love the smell of rain, and I love the sound of the ocean waves.
  575. I love the song ‘I Hope You Dance’ by Lee Ann Womack. I was going to write that song, but someone beat me to it.
  576. I love the three-act theory. It works and works beautifully. But you don’t necessarily have to structure a story that way: Cortazar and Borges wrote in different structural styles.
  577. I love ‘The Vampire Diaries!’ I can’t help it – it’s such a teeny-bopper show, but I think I just like it to stare at the guys.
  578. I love the whole process of making, serving, and eating hearty soups like lentil, potato leek and carrot, to name a few.
  579. I love ‘The Wire;’ that’s my favorite show, so I’ll watch that.
  580. I love the women’s movement, and I never thought of it as belonging to any particular segment of the population.
  581. I love the work that goes into making a movie and creating a different world. It is a wholesome experience.
  582. I love the writing. I love the idea of typing and seeing it on the computer and printing it out myself and, you know, moving sentences around. I like that.
  583. I love the written word so much, I know it’s gonna flow naturally.
  584. I love theatrical props: a cup filled with solid fake tea, say, or a collection of fake food, including a rubber turkey, which, during the holidays, I wrap in tinfoil so it appears to have just come out of the oven.
  585. I love thigh highs, heels, shorts, or a skirt.
  586. I love those tiny little onions in the spring that are so small they’re almost like a little chive.
  587. I love those who do not know how to live for today.
  588. I love tiny, plastic realistic food magnets. I don’t know why. They’re hilarious.
  589. I love to argue. I’ve always loved to argue. And I love to point out the weaknesses of the opposing arguments. It may well be that I’m something of a shin kicker. It may well be that I’m something of a contrarian.
  590. I love to be alone, and I did as a child as well, especially if I was outside.
  591. I love to be individual, to step beyond gender.
  592. I love to cook a meal for the so-called holidays. You always need the turkey. I like making a good BBQ brisket as well.
  593. I love to cook and really enjoy cleaning my house. People always tease me about getting a maid. My girlfriend tells me that they are only $40 and will do everything. But that is my time to unwind, put my hair in a ponytail, throw on sweats, and be myself.
  594. I love to cry. It’s great.
  595. I love to decorate a room – from the furniture to the objects to the books.
  596. I love to direct! I get really jazzed by directing, but directing is not the same kind of personal expression, the same kind of personal intimate expression that writing is. Because when you’re directing, you’re basically managing, basically getting out of people doing their job, except when you see them going astray.
  597. I love to do voiceover because, for me, if you know what you’re doing, it’s simple. No makeup, no costuming, none of the baloney. None of the egos – you don’t have to deal with all that crap. I love voiceovers.
  598. I love to doubt as well as know.
  599. I love to eat, and I don’t believe in denying myself, so I have to work out. I’m not obsessed with it; I don’t have a trainer or do any of the fancy classes, but I usually put on my iPod and run on the treadmill for an hour a few days a week. I’d much rather be the girl who worked out more so she could eat more; I could never not eat.
  600. I love to eat and I don’t believe in denying myself, so I have to work out. I’m not obsessed with it, I don’t have a trainer or do any of the fancy classes, but I usually put on my iPod and run on the treadmill for an hour a few days a week.
  601. I love to eat. I could make a professional sport out of it.
  602. I love to engage in repartee with people who are stupider than I am.
  603. I love to flirt, and I’ve never met a man I didn’t like.
  604. I love to get to that place where I don’t know what kind of music I’m doing; I don’t know if it’s any good. I don’t know if it’s anything. It’s a big question mark. The idea is to have interesting results. That’s my bottom line.
  605. I love to get to the underbelly of why people are up in arms about anything. Really, what I see is a big shadow in the West, in America especially, and everyone’s afraid of looking stupid. But the truth is, I’m a genius and I’m stupid at the same time.
  606. I love to go home and do the chores and read.
  607. I love to go to the zoo. But not on Sunday. I don’t like to see the people making fun of the animals, when it should be the other way around.
  608. I love to have battles of the wits with people that can dish fast and dirty – and it leads to problems occasionally, ’cause I can sound mean without attempting to be mean.
  609. I love to know why things work.
  610. I love to listen to books on tape.
  611. I love to make music and stay grounded.
  612. I love to pick tomatoes at the end of the day, when they’re still warm from the sun.
  613. I love to play. And fortunately, I don’t know a lot of musicians that suck. I know a bunch of really good ones, and they’re always up for playing.
  614. I love to play. I love, opera, hiking and museums. The one thing I don’t do is sit. I have a tremendous amount of energy.
  615. I love to play music. So why endanger that with something like drugs?
  616. I love to put on lotion. Sometimes I’ll watch TV and go into a lotion trance for an hour. I try to find brands that don’t taste bad in case anyone wants to taste me.
  617. I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels.
  618. I love to see old women. I love wrinkles. I love gray hair.
  619. I love to see people just being regal in their own skin; it’s just when they know who they are.
  620. I love to shop. Clothes, electronics, and I love jewelry, especially yellow gold.
  621. I love to sing! To be in a movie with musical number is the coolest thing ever!
  622. I love to study the many things that grow below the corn stalks and bring them back to the studio to study the color. If one could only catch that true color of nature – the very thought of it drives me mad.
  623. I love to take, process and share photos – it fills me up.
  624. I love to travel, and I think being whisked away somewhere for a vacation is a pretty amazing date. But, I’m really into the basic movie and dinner. It’s not where you are but who you’re with that really matters.
  625. I love to watch how scientists’ minds work.
  626. I love to win, honestly… If you love to win, you should say it. And honestly, I’m hooked on it.
  627. I love to write. I have always loved writing. That was my first love.
  628. I love ‘Top Chef.’ I think it rewrote the book on how food shows are presented on TV.
  629. I love Toronto. I love it. I love Toronto. I love Canada. I can’t wait to get back. Can’t wait to have some Timbits.
  630. I love traveling all over the world; but it’s true: there’s nothing like home.
  631. I love Twitter, but some people use profanity so much that at some point it’s like saying, ‘Pass the salt.’
  632. I love us so incredibly, insanely deeply; it’s almost unbearable to see what we do to ourselves.
  633. I love using hummus as centerpiece and then making different containers of vegetables for fun dipping.
  634. I love Velveeta cheese.
  635. I love Wal-Mart, and not just because my record is there. You can get some things there that you cannot find at Saks or Bergdorf’s or other upscale stores.
  636. I love watching a single pork chop seasoned with garlic and shallots cook and see the fat bubble around it.
  637. I love when a girl is like, ‘I can’t hang out. I have to go to class.’ And I go pick her up, and she’s all sweaty in a leotard with her hair in a bun. That’s the hottest thing ever.
  638. I love Whole Foods. I love the Austin-based boutique supermarket chain so much I find ways to go there almost every day.
  639. I love Wingfoot; I’m a member of Wingfoot. It’s a great course.
  640. I love Wisconsin. It’s a great place.
  641. I love wisdom. And you can never be great at anything unless you love it. Not be in love with it, but love the thing, admire the thing. And it seems that if you love the thing, and you don’t just want to possess it, it will find you.
  642. I love women, and I have a lot of really close girlfriends, but I’m not one of those women who’s like, ‘Ew – that’s boy stuff.’
  643. I love women. I get along with women more than men, and I have more women friends.
  644. I love working if it’s with people who are capable of having a good time. People with a little bit of enjoyment of what they do. If it’s enormous pressure, and people feel that their lives are at stake, then it’s agony. So I try to pick projects where I feel like I’m going to avoid those traps.
  645. I love working in New York theater.
  646. I love writing but hate starting. The page is awfully white, and it says, ‘You may have fooled some of the people some of the time, but those days are over, giftless. I’m not your agent, and I’m not your mommy; I’m a white piece of paper. You wanna dance with me?’ and I really, really don’t. I’ll go peaceable-like.
  647. I love writing letters. In order to write a novel in first person, I think I needed an addressee.
  648. I love WWE, and I love that platform. There is no other platform in the world that gives me that instant gratification. There is just no other platform.
  649. I love yoga. There’s a lot of stretching involved, which helps with my flexibility and injury prevention. Vinyasa is my favorite as a recovery tool and for me to continue having my legs feel good.
  650. I love yoga.
  651. I love you more than my own skin.
  652. I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
  653. I loved Adam Sandler’s early stuff. I thought it was so cool how irreverent and weird he would get.
  654. I loved being in a band.
  655. I loved being in the Marine Corps, I loved my job in the Marine Corps, and I loved the people I served with. It’s one of the best things I’ve had a chance to do.
  656. I loved being Maleficent. I was quite sad to put my staff down and put my horns away because somehow, she just lives in a different world.
  657. I loved dancing as a young girl.
  658. I loved doing problems in school. I’d take them home and make up new ones of my own. But the best problem I ever found, I found in my local public library. I was just browsing through the section of math books and I found this one book, which was all about one particular problem – Fermat’s Last Theorem.
  659. I loved doing ‘The Family’ with Eunice and Mama. They were very interesting because there were no jokes written into those sketches. It was all character-driven. And sometimes it got a little heavy.
  660. I loved every second of Catholic church. I loved the sickly sweet rotting-pomegranate smells of the incense. I loved the overwrought altar, the birdbath of holy water, the votive candles; I loved that there was a poor box, the stations of the cross rendered in stained glass on the windows.
  661. I loved fairy tales when I was a kid. Grimm. The grimmer the better. I loved gruesome gothic tales and, in that respect, I liked Bible stories, because to me they were very gothic.
  662. I loved going to church. I enjoyed being a part of the choir and just doing things in and around the church. But as a young girl, I certainly enjoyed watching and listening to my dad.
  663. I loved hard-rock bands, and I loved songwriters who told stories.
  664. I loved having Indian take-aways on a Friday night in Liverpool, but it’s so different in the real India.
  665. I loved Lauryn Hill; I loved the Fugees.
  666. I loved Madeleine L’Engle as a child – ‘A Wrinkle in Time.’
  667. I loved medieval architecture when I was very small; I don’t know why.
  668. I loved performing in the ‘High School Musical’ movies – that didn’t seem like work – but the gym felt like torture!
  669. I loved playing football. In this particular match the ball happened to hit my right eye, the only one which I could see light and colour with.
  670. I loved playing the guitar and I knew I was pretty good at it, so that’s what I wanted to do with my life.
  671. I loved riding bikes and horses. I was eight when I started having lessons, and when my father bought me my own horse I couldn’t wait to go off on my own.
  672. I loved Stephen Wright, and I loved Mitch Hedberg, but they seemed like geniuses you could never emulate. You’d just be ripping them off.
  673. I loved the Black Eyed Peas. I was obsessed with them, and they were my favorite group ever, and Amy Winehouse, as well; I love her.
  674. I loved the fact that Obama is multi-racial. I thought that was terrific, as my wife is the same racial make-up.
  675. I loved the Kennedy Center Honors because you just sit there, smile, wave, and cry.
  676. I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them.
  677. I made a choice before I lost my legs that I was going to live the best life possible and that I wasn’t going to let this slow me down – and that choice has kept me moving forward.
  678. I made a lot of mistakes. And obviously, it cost me.
  679. I made a mistake by being ejected from the presidency. Next time, I will choose a Cabinet which will allow me to be life President.
  680. I made a vow to myself while I was a hostage that if I were lucky enough to live and to get out of Somalia, I would do something meaningful with my life – and specifically something that would be meaningful in the country where I’d lost my freedom.
  681. I made an album I’m very proud of, and that’s about it.
  682. I made it, Ma – Carnegie Hall. And I didn’t have to practice.
  683. I made my fair share of mistakes.
  684. I made my first film when I was 35, so I firmly believe that you don’t have to be one thing in life. If you’re doing something, and you have a desire to do something different, give it a try.
  685. I made my first stage appearance when I was 6 months old.
  686. I made my first white women friends in college; they loved me and were loyal to our friendship, but I understood, as they did, that they were white women and that whiteness mattered.
  687. I made my living in comedy, but I’m not a silly person. I’ve got all these sides to me. Even in my movies that I’ve written myself, the characters sometimes border on great anger or nutsiness or other kinds of behavior. I’m not just doing fart jokes for two hours.
  688. I made numerous attempts to find a way to do it all, to be a creative singer, songwriter, producer, and to be the mother, daughter, sister, lover, wife. And the thing about music is, with me, that she’s a harsh mistress. She does not come to me in the midst of stress.
  689. I made peace with ‘Tevar’ not doing well and moved on.
  690. I made several short films with very little dialogue. I’m still not a fan of talking heads. My stories are told with images as much as possible.
  691. I made the decision that I was going to make rap music in, like, fourth grade, so it’s been something I was saying for a long time.
  692. I made three short films of my own which I wrote, produced, directed… you did everything in those days. My favourite one was something I shot on VHS… a little documentary.
  693. I maintain by going to spin four or five days a week. I love that I can get a solid butt-kicking in 40 minutes. I also strength train two or three times a week.
  694. I maintain that, if everyone knew what others said about him, there would not be four friends in the world.
  695. I majored in elementary education, and I have a passion for kids.
  696. I majored in theater, so I’d love to get back on a stage.
  697. I make a fair amount of my food choices for environmental-type reasons than nutrition or taste. I’m trying to minimize impact, which is something most people don’t necessarily think about when they’re shopping.
  698. I make all that money and it ain’t enough. I gotta make more to help all the people around me.
  699. I make an enormous amount of salads, but my salads are like meals. They’re amazing. I like going down to the farmers’ market and looking to see whatever you can find, because you can put anything in a salad.
  700. I make charts of songs that are good candidates, good targets, so to speak. Then I try to come up with ideas for parodies. And 99% of those ideas are horrible.
  701. I make films about black women and it doesn’t mean that you can’t see them as a black man, doesn’t mean that he can’t see them as a white man or she can’t see them as a white woman.
  702. I make friends faster and easier than journalists.
  703. I make fun of situations and try and find the humor in things, but it’s never at the expense of the other guy.
  704. I make hats. I’m on a hat frenzy. I’m on my eighth and I love it.
  705. I make it a rule never to smoke while I’m sleeping.
  706. I make music for the whole world, not just one borough.
  707. I make pop culture.
  708. I make preparations both to live and to die every day, but with the emphasis on not dying, and on acting as if I was going to carry on living.
  709. I make up new lyrics to well-known lullabies. Mostly because I don’t actually know a lot of the lyrics.
  710. I managed my life to the point that at age 19 I was still in high school. I decided I was too old to be walking down those hallways.
  711. I married an archaeologist because the older I grow, the more he appreciates me.
  712. I married my college boyfriend, so I’ve been with him since I was a kid.
  713. I married my husband because I loved him, and I don’t feel like there’s anybody missing from our marriage, but when you think about this person that you love, and you think about what a wonderful thing it would be to bring another person like that into this world, I think that’s the hardest part about all of it.
  714. I marvel at the resilience of the Jewish people. Their best characteristic is their desire to remember. No other people has such an obsession with memory.
  715. I may be drunk, Miss, but in the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.
  716. I may get married later or may never get married. But I want babies, so I’ll have to get married. I want fat, cute babies. Every girl has to think about it at some point. For me, marriage is about family, and that’s why I find it necessary. Till then, it’s normal to have a partner and do your own thing.
  717. I may look stupid but dont let it it foool you i is smmart. by.
  718. I may neither choose who I would, nor refuse who I dislike; so is the will of a living daughter curbed by the will of a dead father.
  719. I may not be walking with you all the way, or even much of the way, as I walk with you now.
  720. I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.
  721. I may not know everything about physical talent or anything like that, but I have a sharp mind when it comes to that look: being able to look into somebody’s eyes to tell if they are going to be in the foxhole with you tonight, or if they are not.
  722. I mean, before this, I would have said playing Bill Gates, because I’m playing someone obviously who is alive and is the richest man in the world. That was a heavy responsibility.
  723. I mean, everyone agrees with stress tests for banks. I mean that’s clear. But banks should do that on their own. And they should worry about their own capital functioning. That’s what they should do. It shouldn’t be a government function.
  724. I mean, I absolutely call myself a feminist. And by that, I mean a woman who believes that your opportunities should not be constrained by your gender, that women should be entitled to the same opportunities as men.
  725. I mean, I did plays in high school, but I was convinced you couldn’t make a living doing it.
  726. I mean, I do actually think there is a qualitative difference between aborting in the early part of the first trimester and in, you know, the middle or later part of the second trimester, in a way that you feel about it in that you grow attached.
  727. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money.
  728. I mean I don’t really think about it. You know, do you know what I often say to myself? I think you’re very lucky in life if you know what you want to do.
  729. I mean, I don’t write for kids.
  730. I mean, I feel like you get more bees with honey. But that doesn’t mean I don’t get frustrated in my life.
  731. I mean, I hate to gloat, but I’m extremely satisfied with my position in life and the way things have worked out for me.
  732. I mean, I have done scenes with animals, with owls, with bats, with cats, with special effects, with thespians, in the freezing cold, in the pouring rain, boiling hot; I’ve done press with every syndication, every country; I’ve done interviews with people dressed up as cows – there’s honestly nothing that’s gonna intimidate me!
  733. I mean, I look at my dad. He was twenty when he started having a family, and he was always the coolest dad. He did everything for his kids, and he never made us feel like he was pressured. I know that it must be a great feeling to be a guy like that.
  734. I mean, I never liked being told what to do. It’s one of the reasons I dropped out of school.
  735. I mean, I’m 48 years old and I’ve been through a lot in my life – you know, loss, whether it be death, illness, separation. I mean, the failed expectations… We all have dreams.
  736. I mean, in my – and I’m not trying to do spilled milk, but in those days it was a little – I think it was much tougher, because you got an image, and you were in a saloon. And it was tough to come out of a saloon and to get in films, and to maintain an image, you know.
  737. I mean in the South African case, many of those who were part of death squads would have been respectable members of their white community, people who went to church on Sunday, every Sunday.
  738. I mean, it is an extraordinary thing that a large proportion of your country and my country, of the citizens, never see a wild creature from dawn ’til dusk, unless it’s a pigeon, which isn’t really wild, which might come and settle near them.
  739. I mean, I’ve always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else’s hair.
  740. I mean, I’ve always said I have an amazing team and network of friends and people that I work with that, you know, inspire me and enable me to do what I do.
  741. I mean, I’ve never really had much security, to be honest.
  742. I mean, language fascinates me anyway, and different words have different energies and you can change the whole drive of a sentence.
  743. I mean, look, I love movies, not just the ones I make… In fact, I don’t like the movies I make very much.
  744. I mean, sometimes I hate interviews because I always feel like I sound stupid.
  745. I mean that at least 80% of the Russian people feel destitute. It’s the people who had their past and future taken from them – they don’t get paid – many of them face a wall. They have nowhere to go.
  746. I mean, the Constitution of this country was written 200 years ago. The house I was living in in Madrid is 350 years old! America is still a project, and you guys are working on it and bringing new things to it every day. That is beautiful to watch.
  747. I mean, there’s no arguing. There is no anything. There is no beating around the bush. ‘You’re fired’ is a very strong term.
  748. I mean, we sit around and we go, you know, ‘Torture doesn’t work.’ Well, it’s been around for 5,000 years. Most stuff that doesn’t work goes the way of the dodo pretty quick, like waterbeds and 8-tracks and things like that.
  749. I mean, what would I be doing if I couldn’t write? But that fortunately hasn’t proved to be the case and I can read any day. I still read a lot, and I can write any day, but much more slowly and fewer words.
  750. I mean, why am I considered an ‘it girl?’ Because I’m in a lot of movies right now or am on the covers of magazines? I just hope there is something solid behind that. Because here’s the thing with ‘it girl’ status. It’s great and amazing that anybody is saying that at all. But how long does that last?
  751. I mean, you still can’t jump offstage and go read a book. But I’m getting better at it. It is something you can manage. You can still give everything you have to the audience onstage, and have something for yourself.
  752. I meant what I said and I said what I meant.
  753. I measured my success by how many clients I had and how many billable hours I had.
  754. I meet and talk to women from every corner of this planet, and I can find beauty in each and every one of them.
  755. I meet people overseas that know five languages – that the only language I’m comfortable in is English.
  756. I met Howard Zinn in 1961, my first year at Spelman College in Atlanta. He was the tall, rangy, good-looking professor that many of the girls at Spelman swooned over.
  757. I met India Arie, who is one of my favorite artists of all time. It was really sweet; I was broken up with a month before, and she stayed up texting me all night and was helping me through it. Her text message looks like a song of hers. She’s sort of become my fairy godmother.
  758. I met Malcolm the month before he was killed. He deeply changed my mind about America.
  759. I met my husband before I became a star, and he doesn’t care about any of it.
  760. I met Woz when I was 13, at a friend’s garage. He was about 18. He was, like, the first person I met who knew more electronics than I did at that point. We became good friends, because we shared an interest in computers and we had a sense of humor. We pulled all kinds of pranks together.
  761. I might be deceiving myself but I do not think that I do have an inordinate fear of death.
  762. I might be in favor of national healthcare if it required all Democrats to get their heads examined.
  763. I might be more of a tomboy on the ice, but when it comes to fashion and things like that, I’m a total girlie-girl.
  764. I might be more satisfied seeing my friends really come up than myself. I’m really happy for my success, but I can’t really see it, because I’m myself working. You can see it; everyone around me can see it.
  765. I might have been born into a very literal sense of chaos, but in fact that state is true of all of us.
  766. I might just write a novel next. I don’t know!
  767. I might not agree with myself in a year.
  768. I might not understand everything a Democrat or liberal thinks but hey let’s be honest, I don’t understand some of the things the Republicans think, but that doesn’t make me some dumb hick that doesn’t have the right to live here.
  769. I might see something on TV and get inspired to write about it. I can’t sit down and plan to write. It has to come to me in my head like someone telling me the words.
  770. I might talk about killing people, but that doesn’t mean I do it.
  771. I miss my singing career very much.
  772. I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks.
  773. I miss the camera each moment and each day.
  774. I mix my own lipsticks, so I don’t really keep track of the brand as it’s usually a number of them I’ve smushed together.
  775. I modelled my looks on the town tramp.
  776. I moved back to Idaho when I was 6 or 7 and then lived in a little town called Twin Falls and then moved to Boise. So quite different from L.A. I’d been to Disneyland a couple of times, and that was the closest I’d been to L.A.
  777. I moved out to Los Angeles a fan of many people, and meeting people I put on a pedestal that just disappointed me. Without fans, this business would not exist, so I try and say that we’re all on the same level.
  778. I must admit, maybe I am a piece of history after all.
  779. I must admit that i am fascinated by the glories of ancient India. But when will the purveyors of Indian culture realise that not everything about our past was glorious?
  780. I must be cruel, only to be kind.
  781. I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
  782. I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
  783. I must have been one of the least surprised people on earth on September 11. I felt very braced for that. I knew something like that was going to come.
  784. I must have interviewed 600 or 700 scientists all around the world.
  785. I must lose myself in action, lest I wither in despair.
  786. I must refine my training every day to give myself the best opportunity to achieve my dreams during the Olympic Games in Rio.
  787. I must say I am not pleased to have to arrange the Senate schedule around the availability of Senators who are running for President.
  788. I must stress here the point that I appreciate clarity, order, meaning, structure, rationality: they are necessary to whatever provisional stability we have, and they can be the agents of gradual and successful change.
  789. I must thank my good friend Nigel Brennan. His strength of character in the midst of extreme hardship inspired me during the darkest days. Despite our separation, he always managed to find small ways to remind me that there are gentlemen in the world, even when I was surrounded by just the opposite.
  790. I must try desperately to absorb all information I can about the Middle East. I want to excel. I want to speak articulately about the politics of the Middle East and its religion.
  791. I must uphold my ideals, for perhaps the time will come when I shall be able to carry them out.
  792. I must write it all out, at any cost. Writing is thinking. It is more than living, for it is being conscious of living.
  793. I myself am frustrated in just where sports are at. It’s a hard thing when you’re out there working every day, and you know that someone else is cheating and they may not necessarily get caught.
  794. I myself started out quite young; when you’re working, professionally, even if you are in your teens, you just want to be treated the same as everybody else. You just want people to see you as an actor and not as a kid.
  795. I myself would like to become more disciplined within my work.
  796. I need a teacher quite as much as Helen. I know the education of this child will be the distinguishing event of my life, if I have the brains and perseverance to accomplish it.
  797. I need drama in my life to keep making music.
  798. I need more sex, OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.
  799. I need music like I need water.
  800. I need my career. That’s what validates me.
  801. I need scarcely observe that a poem deserves its title only inasmuch as it excites, by elevating the soul. The value of the poem is in the ratio of this elevating excitement.
  802. I need some downtime before I go to sleep.
  803. I need to be able to explain myself in context.
  804. I need to be allowed to make my own decisions and mistakes, take leaps – and fall – without receiving too much help, because it’s what I’ll be doing for the rest of my life.
  805. I need to be bad. I don’t want to burn out. I also don’t want to be a person who is always performance-oriented. I also want to have some fun.
  806. I need to be home more. That’s the goal now. I have a steady flow of things people want me to do.
  807. I need to be performing. I need to be acting. I need to be designing a condo and ripping down walls and buying new plates and looking at fashion magazines. There always has to be some movement in the artistic department for me to not get really, really low.
  808. I need to feel like the work I’m doing is not necessarily important, but meaningful, at least to me, because otherwise it just becomes a day job. It just becomes factory work and I get really frustrated.
  809. I need to keep working on myself for a while.
  810. I need to know how many records I’ve sold, how many album equivalents from streaming, which territories are playing my music more than others, because it helps me in conversations about where we’re gonna be playing shows or where I might open a retail location, like a pop-up store or something.
  811. I need to listen to chill music when I’m driving. It prevents road rage.
  812. I need to take care of my mom and making sure she’s financially OK. She’s done so much for me, it’s the least thing I can do.
  813. I need your help. I am injured, near death, and too weak to hike out of here. I am all alone. This is no joke. In the name of God, please remain to save me. I am out collecting berries close by and shall return this evening. Thank you, Chris McCandless.
  814. I neither will aspire to nor will I accept, the position of president of the council of state and commander in chief.
  815. I never anticipated seeing 40.
  816. I never bothered with cars. I was probably one of the few kids in school who didn’t run around with hot-rod magazines. As I would be at home fiddling with my guitar, they would be fiddling with a car engine.
  817. I never buy a house thinking that I’m going to sell it.
  818. I never called my work an ‘art’. It’s part of show business, the business of building entertainment.
  819. I never come to know if somebody is in love with me; they will have to hold placards and say it.
  820. I never consciously got into comedy. It was sort of one of those things where I was a theater student, I was acting, I was doing comedy, I was doing dramatic stuff, so it’s been something that I’ve always done and enjoyed doing and had an instinct to be relatively good at.
  821. I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.
  822. I never could get over the fact that The Pixies formed, worked and separated without America taking them to its heart or even recognizing their existence for the most part.
  823. I never could have done what I have done without the habits of punctuality, order, and diligence, without the determination to concentrate myself on one subject at a time.
  824. I never deny a true experience in one shot.
  825. I never deny. I never contradict. I sometimes forget.
  826. I never did pal around with actresses. Their talk usually bored me to tears.
  827. I never do anything for money; I get paid a lot of money as a by-product.
  828. I never doubted that equal rights was the right direction. Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality.
  829. I never dreamed of being a pop star when I was a child.
  830. I never dreamt, in my dream, I’m Dalai Lama.
  831. I never drink coffee at lunch. I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon.
  832. I never dye my own hair, I don’t know if I could get every spot, and I have a good bit of grey.
  833. I never even went to Jekyll & Hyde’s restaurant. I loved the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, though.
  834. I never, ever decided that I had to write a novel because, to me, there’s no such decision that ought to be made. It’s only something that I felt compelled to do, and it began to evolve.
  835. I never expect to lose. Even when I’m the underdog, I still prepare a victory speech.
  836. I never expect to see a perfect work from an imperfect man.
  837. I never expected anyone to take care of me, but in my wildest dreams and juvenile yearnings, I wanted the house with the picket fence from June Allyson movies. I knew that was yearning like one yearns to fly.
  838. I never expected to be anybody important.
  839. I never experienced any feelings of closeness and caring from my parents.
  840. I never felt an obligation to say every single terrible thing that happened to me.
  841. I never felt any attraction towards violence. I never tried to express myself through violence. Violence is a language.
  842. I never felt cynical, and I never felt that I couldn’t do what I wanted to do.
  843. I never felt fanboyish about acting, about actors, about movies. I’m a fanboy with music.
  844. I never felt like I had made it.
  845. I never felt settled or calm. You can’t really commit to life when you feel that.
  846. I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
  847. I never felt that I was supposed to be white. Or black, either. My parents just wanted to let me be who I needed to be.
  848. I never felt the GDR was my home country.
  849. I never felt totally, 100%, patriotically English… I’d seen a lot of the world by an early age – sort of spent a lot of time traveling around Lebanon and I’d seen Babylon, and Damascus, and all sorts of places in the Middle East by the time I was ten. Then we’d return to Ruslip in West London… Done a fair bit of traveling really.
  850. I never found out until I went into treatment that I was bipolar.
  851. I never get sick on airplanes, which is incredible. You’re basically in a flying petri dish.
  852. I never give up on things.
  853. I never got any training in how to write novels as an English major at Oberlin, but I got some great training for writing novels from anthropology and from Margaret Mead.
  854. I never got down with conveying a larger-than-life vibe.
  855. I never got into training to be an All-Ireland boxing champ or to win a belt. At the start, I just got into it to learn how to defend myself when I got into situations.
  856. I never guess. It is a shocking habit destructive to the logical faculty.
  857. I never had a better role than I had in ‘Little Miss Sunshine.’ That was one of my favorite roles ever.
  858. I never had a desire to be a filmmaker. As a child and a teenager and in college, I was not aware of black women making films.
  859. I never had a mother. I suppose a mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled.
  860. I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.
  861. I never had a political power base.
  862. I never had a speech from my father ‘this is what you must do or shouldn’t do’ but I just learned to be led by example. My father wasn’t perfect.
  863. I never had a strategy about my life. I didn’t have enough information to have a strategy. I’m the first person in my family to go to college. I had no family mentors.
  864. I never had an existential moment when I asked myself what I was going to do. I always wanted to be a lawyer, and I knew exactly the kind of lawyer I wanted to be.
  865. I never had one day that I didn’t want to be on the ice, because I always had an objective for that day. I had a rigorous plan and schedule in place that I had to adhere to. It was a step-by-step process of slowly but surely inching toward the Olympic Games and using every day as a series of goals to be accomplished.
  866. I never had that feeling that I had to carry the weight of somebody’s ignorance around with me. And that was true for racists who wanted to use the ‘n’ word when talking about me or about my people, or the stupidity of people who really wanted to belittle other folks because they weren’t pretty or they weren’t rich or they weren’t clever.
  867. I never had to choose a subject – my subject rather chose me.
  868. I never have an intended audience. I just write, you know.
  869. I never have used a trainer. I’m slightly intimidated by the idea of somebody in my face.
  870. I never heard Jack Nicklaus say, ‘I’m a great player,’ or Tiger Woods, as a matter of fact. They just get out and do it. And I think that’s far more appealing… than talking about how good you are.
  871. I never heard the word ‘compromise’ used. So I’m starting to believe that these terms only come into play to try and force Republicans to do what the Democrats want.
  872. I never hold a grudge.
  873. I never, in anything I’ve ever done, tried to get you to like it. I was never going to succeed at that. That’s not the way most entertainment is made. Most entertainment is trying to get you. It’s tested, like toothpaste.
  874. I never intended being a business person I wanted to be a fashion designer.
  875. I never knew if I would get my own show, but I knew I loved stand-up.
  876. I never know going in if I’ve even got a movie to make. Once you start making a film, you hope there’s going to be enough material! My job as a director is always to push for more.
  877. I never know what’s going to happen or what opportunities are going to be given to me. I’ve found with the opportunities that I’ve been given have made it possible for me to explore different characters and exciting stories.
  878. I never leaf through a copy of National Geographic without realizing how lucky we are to live in a society where it is traditional to wear clothes.
  879. I never learnt Hebrew because my health was fragile, and it was thought that learning Hebrew would be an added burden. I regret it, because I would like to be able to join in fully. Not that I am a believer, but I would like to be.
  880. I never left doo wop.
  881. I never let schooling interfere with my education.
  882. I never let track define me. That’s something that’s really important to me.
  883. I never like being touched, ever. People used to say I held my breath when they were hugging me. I still do.
  884. I never like to think about going back; I only look forward.
  885. I never liked going in the ocean.
  886. I never look at other people’s work. My mind has to be completely focused on my own illusions.
  887. I never look at the goalkeeper’s eyes.
  888. I never looked at the consequences of missing a big shot… when you think about the consequences you always think of a negative result.
  889. I never make conscious decisions.
  890. I never met a man who was shaken by a field of identical blades of grass. An acre of poppies and a forest of spruce boggle no one’s mind.
  891. I never needed much, and I never thought I’d get more than what I had. A trip to Burger King was the biggest thing in the world to me. Heaven.
  892. I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.
  893. I never pay any attention. I’m sure it’s not such a good way to be, but I don’t really follow market research.
  894. I never place limits on the potential success of my students. If they’re going into acting, they’re going to win the Oscar… If they’re going into law, they’re going to be chief justice.
  895. I never played sports or got into the whole guy camaraderie of, like, ‘I love you, man! Seniors forever!’ So suddenly being in the military with these guys who were under these very heightened circumstances, isolated from their families, living this very kind of Greek lifestyle, it changed my life in a really big way.
  896. I never plot out my novels in terms of the tone of the book. Hopefully, once a story is begun it reveals itself.
  897. I never quit trying. I never felt that I didn’t have a chance to win.
  898. I never read comic books as a kid.
  899. I never read. The paper or anything. I watch a lot of movies, and TV series and stuff. But I never, never read.
  900. I never realised ‘The Return’ would take so long to make – it was a very tough ‘political experience,’ and the post production in L.A. seemed to go on forever.
  901. I never really did abandon my true self. It’s not like I invented this imaginary person and started to be her.
  902. I never really did sports growing up. Maybe that’s why they intrigue me. The technology that goes into that clothing is steps ahead, so it’s always been something I look towards.
  903. I never really did that well in school because I was so absorbed with doing acting.
  904. I never really enjoyed getting a portfolio together then sending it out; whereas, putting up the website is quite an enjoyable experience. The net’s just a much faster and more modern way to distribute things, and you have to embrace it.
  905. I never really felt like a rock singer or a rock star or whatever.
  906. I never really got paid for ‘Tell It Like Is,’ but I look back at it and say God knew what he was doing; he probably figured that if I had got money back in them days, I wouldn’t be here now. That’s okay. I’m here. And I’m still singing the song.
  907. I never really looked up to celebrities when I was young.
  908. I never really necessarily liked being quiet.
  909. I never really take shortcuts. I was always one of those people who, instead of cutting across someone’s yard on the way home from school, I would go to the end of the block and turn.
  910. I never really thought in terms of the concept of being a rock star – being around people like that just seemed like normal day-in-the-life stuff to me. Those were just the surroundings I grew up in.
  911. I never really thought of myself as an Asian-American cartoonist, any more than I thought of myself as a cartoonist who wears glasses.
  912. I never really thought of myself as being an action hero or a leading man or any of that. I’m a character actor.
  913. I never regretted turning down anything, I never regretted losing a job because I always felt something else was out there.
  914. I never resist temptation, because I have found that things that are bad for me do not tempt me.
  915. I never rooted against an opponent, but I never rooted for him either.
  916. I never said all actors are cattle; what I said was all actors should be treated like cattle.
  917. I never said all Democrats were saloonkeepers. What I said was that all saloonkeepers are Democrats.
  918. I never saw a contradiction between the ideas that sustain me and the ideas of that symbol, of that extraordinary figure, Jesus Christ.
  919. I never saw anything funny in a car commercial – but that’s OK. Whatever they wanted to do – it’s their product and I’m the spokesperson, and I’m going to deliver.
  920. I never saw myself as a folk singer.
  921. I never saw myself as an individual who had any particular leadership powers.
  922. I never saw myself going to college. Even when I was looking at different schools, I was like, this really isn’t right.
  923. I never say I work in television, I say I get to work in television.
  924. I never see a novel as a film while I’m writing it. Mostly because novels and films are so different, and I’m such an internal novelist.
  925. I never see songs as permanent. I’m always in a state of revising everything.
  926. I never see thy face but I think upon hell-fire.
  927. I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.
  928. I never ‘shunned’ L.A., like people say. And I do think you can raise children well there, but it’s definitely harder.
  929. I never smoke to excess – that is, I smoke in moderation, only one cigar at a time.
  930. I never speak for my husband, and I never speak for my children. It’s a rule. Believe me, it is.
  931. I never start out with any kind of connecting theme or plan. Everything just falls the way it falls. I don’t ever think about what kind of fiction I write or what I am writing about or what I am trying to write about. When I’m writing, what I do is I think about a story that I want to tell.
  932. I never sympathise with the accused unless there’s a chance the accused is not guilty, but I certainly don’t ever sympathise with the criminal.
  933. I never talk about ‘Harry Potter’ because I think that would rob children of something that’s private to them. I think too many things get explained, so I hate talking about it.
  934. I never talk about my next project.
  935. I never teach the same course twice.
  936. I never think about gifts. It’s enough to have my family present.
  937. I never think about myself as an artist working in this time. I think about it in macro.
  938. I never think about the actual process of writing. I suppose I have a superstition about examining it too closely.
  939. I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people’s minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.
  940. I never think of the future – it comes soon enough.
  941. I never think people should do things for me. I think I should do things for others. That makes me more comfortable.
  942. I never think that people die. They just go to department stores.
  943. I never thought a role model should be negative.
  944. I never thought about my image. It interests me that there are people who do, that they seem to be methodical about it. Maybe things would have gone differently for me in some ways if I had.
  945. I never thought about what people would say about me. I was just a young guy who was excited to become a comedian and an actor, and I just wanted to get to do what I got to do.
  946. I never thought getting older would be so great. But when it comes to depression, I have experienced less the older I’ve gotten.
  947. I never thought I would be divorced.
  948. I never thought I would be such a family-oriented guy; I didn’t think that was part of my makeup. But somebody said that as you get older, you become the person you always should have been, and I feel that’s happening to me.
  949. I never thought I would see a free South Sudan.
  950. I never thought I’d have a career because of YouTube.
  951. I never thought I’d have children; I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person. Having come from a broken home – you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.
  952. I never thought I’d land in pictures with a face like mine.
  953. I never thought in my life, I never really thought I would get married. I watched my parents go through a divorce, and I thought, like, this is just not something people are supposed to do.
  954. I never thought, in my lifetime, that you’d be able to watch movies, read books and listen to music from a phone, but I guess the technology of tomorrow is here today.
  955. I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
  956. I never thought my private life would be newsworthy.
  957. I never thought of losing, but now that it’ s happened, the only thing is to do it right. That’s my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life.
  958. I never thought of myself as a wealthy person. I’ve thought of myself as a person who has had a lot of luck. I don’t have the same stress that other people have, but there are too many things I could have done differently if wealth was what I was after. If I was all about money, I would have lived in L.A.
  959. I never thought of myself as capable of stirring up – generating – the actual drumroll for a record, you know, all the press.
  960. I never thought that I’d be a role model. Everyone kind of just made me a role model, and I hated that.
  961. I never thought that one day that this NAS Jax would be the center of aviation excellence in the Southeast and from pole to pole.
  962. I never thought that tailoring was something that normal people did; I just thought that it was something that guys who had suits made of Italian silk depended on, and I wish someone had told me what a difference tailoring makes!
  963. I never took a day off in my twenties. Not one. And I’m still fanatical, but now I’m a little less fanatical.
  964. I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.
  965. I never understood why when you died, you didn’t just vanish, everything could just keep going on the way it was only you just wouldn’t be there. I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph, and no name. Well, actually, I’d like it to say ‘figment.’
  966. I never want to be in that stage where a band ends up playing state fairs and casinos. I am not willing to go out shooting up Botox and eating corn dogs while judging pig contests.
  967. I never wanted money worries to slow me down or make me take a job I didn’t want.
  968. I never wanted to be a Cold War novelist.
  969. I never wanted to be a director.
  970. I never wanted to be a performer. I suppose I was precocious, really.
  971. I never wanted to be mainstream as a writer, but look at what’s happened.
  972. I never wanted to be Marilyn – it just happened. Marilyn’s like a veil I wear over Norma Jeane.
  973. I never wanted to stay in one genre; I never wanted to be pigeon-holed or defined as the actor who only worked in one genre. I want to be able to work in all different genres. For me it’s fun, and that’s how I grow as an actor.
  974. I never wanted to study art. And I don’t think you need to study art if you are an artist. It’s even dangerous to go to school. You need to do whatever you want, as you want.
  975. I never wanted to weigh more heavily on a man than a bird.
  976. I never wear too much jewelry. I never wear a ton of pattern. Sometimes I’ll go big, but it never feels right.
  977. I never weighed myself when I was at my lightest because I didn’t want to know.
  978. I never went out looking for glory.
  979. I never went to rock concerts when I was a kid. I didn’t see any rock & roll bands. I had posters on my wall. I had Beatles records.
  980. I never went to rock concerts when I was a kid. I didn’t see any rock & roll bands.
  981. I never went to school more than six months in my life, but I can say this: that among my earliest recollections, I remember how, when a mere child, I used to get irritated when anybody talked to me in a way I could not understand.
  982. I never will, by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance or admit a right of inquiry into the religious opinions of others.
  983. I never wore full-on eyeliner in high school, but I wanted to.
  984. I never worry about action, but only inaction.
  985. I News Telangana, Andhra Pradesh Contact Address, WhatsApp Number
  986. I nitpick details.
  987. I no have education. I have inspiration. If I was educated, I would be a damn fool.
  988. I no longer buy papers or tabloids or magazines or read blogs. I used to. But it was just filling up my day with hatred.
  989. I no longer buy papers or tabloids or magazines or read blogs. I used to.
  990. 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.
  991. I notice that my characters go out to dinner and have fun and take these great trips, but I spend so much time on their lives, I don’t have much of a personal life of my own. I have to sort of remember to fill out that little notebook on me.
  992. I notice that young men go to the universities in order to become doctors or philosophers or anything, so long as it is a title, and that many go in for those professions who are utterly unfit for them, while others who would be very competent are prevented by business or their daily cares, which keep them away from letters.
  993. I noticed this process of waking, and predicted with terrifying logic that one of these years not far away I would be awake continuously and never slip back, and never be free of myself again.
  994. I noticed, when I taught elementary school, how true the squeaky wheel thing is, and how endearing squeaky wheels can be! Because when you’re being a squeaky wheel, you’re also really letting people know who you are.
  995. I now walk into the wild.
  996. I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
  997. I obviously bring all of my insecurities along with me to any role that I tackle.
  998. I obviously have a knack for getting on paper what a lot of people have thought and didn’t realize they thought. And they say, ‘Hey, yeah!’ And they like that.
  999. I, of course, meditate for two hours every morning. It’s part of my schedule; I wake up at 4 a.m. every day and I love it.
  1000. I often feel that I have a split personality. I love more than anything to be in my study writing, but when it’s time to do a book tour, I love that extroverted part, too – talking to people, reading, traveling, going out into the world.
