  1. I’m not a leading man.
  2. I’m not a macroeconomics person.
  3. I’m not a malicious person. When you get past the tattoos and leather, I give people a fair shake. There are periods when I’ve sowed some wild oats, no doubt about it. And I can party with some of the heavyweights. There are some stories about me that, yeah, where there’s smoke there’s fire. But sometimes the smoke is just smoke.
  4. I’m not a manufactured artist. Nobody taught me how to be a proper artist.
  5. I’m not a master of films, I’m rather a slave.
  6. I’m not a model; hence I don’t see the reason to have a six-pack abs. I can pull off a tough and rugged look of a cop in ‘Dhoom’ series without taking my shirt off. Cops don’t have to move around without a shirt to flaunt their machismo. What makes the character of a cop stand out is his attitude and not his six-pack abs.
  7. I’m not a musician, but I play music. So it’s a strange thing.
  8. I’m not a natural born performer.
  9. I’m not a New Age person, but I do believe in meditation, and for that reason I’ve always liked the Buddhist religion. When I’ve been to Japan, I’ve been to Buddhist temples and meditated, and I found that rewarding.
  10. I’m not a parenting expert. In fact, I’m not sure that I even believe in the idea of ‘parenting experts.’ I’m an engaged, imperfect parent and a passionate researcher. I’m an experienced mapmaker and a stumbling traveler. Like many of you, parenting is by far my boldest and most daring adventure.
  11. I’m not a particularly dark individual. I have my moments, it’s true, but I do have a sense of humor.
  12. I’m not a party person. I’m a nerd. I’m not an extrovert in that way at all. The things I enjoy doing could be boring to somebody else.
  13. I’m not a person who likes to confront.
  14. I’m not a plastic surgeon, and I cannot change the DNA of a person, but when I see a woman try on my clothes and she feels beautiful, I know I am doing my job.
  15. I’m not a playwright.
  16. I’m not a politician. And I don’t want to be.
  17. I’m not a politician. I’m not running for office. I can say what I think.
  18. I’m not a practising Muslim.
  19. I’m not a pretty princess, and I’m aware of that, so I like music that is really intense, really bold, and characters that in a way almost have a dark side and are kind of evil because, for me, that’s when I feel my strongest and fiercest, when I’m not necessarily the good girl.
  20. I’m not a propagandist, I’m not a polemicist; my primary interest is just looking at and trying to understand how animals work.
  21. I’m not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman. I’m living on.
  22. I’m not a real film buff. Unfortunately, I don’t have time. I just don’t go. And I become very nervous when I go to a film because I worry so much about the director and it is hard for me to digest my popcorn.
  23. I’m not a real Halloween kind of guy, because Halloween is every day.
  24. I’m not a real sports guy, but I check ESPN.com just so I know what people are talking about.
  25. I’m not a reality-TV kind of guy. But it’s almost like we’re living in a reality show. Every day in this country, everybody keeps worrying about the deterioration of America, and it’s like a big reality show.
  26. I’m not a regrets-type person.
  27. I’m not a religious person in the regular sense, but in the Bible you’re not allowed to steal, you’re not allowed to lie and you’re not allowed to feel you’re above other people.
  28. I’m not a Republican.
  29. I’m not a romantic. In life I didn’t have much experience with romance.
  30. I’m not a saint. I’m not an angel. I’m a human being.
  31. I’m not a scientist. That’s why I don’t want to have to deal with global warming, to tell you the truth.
  32. I’m not a sculptor; I’m a hard-edged model maker. You give me a drawing, you give me a prop to replicate, you give me a crane, scaffolding, parts from ‘Star Wars’ – especially parts from ‘Star Wars’ – I can do this stuff all day long. It’s exactly how I made my living for 15 years.
  33. I’m not a sheep.
  34. I’m not a single-issue person, but I spend so much time on Israel because it is so unfairly condemned around the world.
  35. I’m not a super emotional person, so that’s one reason I love acting – it makes me deal with myself in that kind of way.
  36. I’m not a true vegan.
  37. I’m not a Twitterer, I’m not a twerker, I’m not a Facebooker, I’m not nothing. I’m old school.
  38. I’m not a vindictive kind of guy.
  39. I’m not a writer who teaches. I’m a teacher who writes.
  40. I’m not able to go in with an act that I use month to month year to year all the time. It’s constantly evolving and changing and that keeps me on my toes but certainly adds to the challenge.
  41. I’m not actually a very keen performer. I like putting shows together. I like putting events together. In fact, everything I do is about the conceptualizing and realization of a piece of work, whether it’s the recording or the performance side.
  42. I’m not afraid and these 15 days convinced me there is nothing to fear. Let them be afraid instead.
  43. I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.
  44. I’m not afraid of falling and getting up the next day with a few bumps and bruises.
  45. I’m not afraid of IED’s, bullets, mortars.
  46. I’m not afraid to call a wine that tastes like Skittles or green peppers mixed with orange marmalade. I’ll say, ‘It tastes like chicken.’ I mean, that’s not what people think of when they think of wine, but that’s what it tastes like to me and it hits home.
  47. I’m not afraid to look bad on the screen.
  48. I’m not afraid to look like a big, hairy, smelly, foreign devil in Tokyo, though I do my best not to, I really do.
  49. I’m not afraid to look like an idiot.
  50. I’m not afraid to say I’m competitive.
  51. I’m not against high-tech medicine. It has a secure place in the diagnosis and treatment of serious disease.
  52. I’m not against making new fans, but I’m not going to go out of my way to pander to someone and try to make them like me; that’s not who we are. It’s not as if we’re fighting to find an audience – we have our audience, and anybody else is definitely welcome.
  53. I’m not against screens, or new songs, or innovation. I just don’t like the gimmicks. I want to know when worship is over that that leader’s sole purpose was to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ.
  54. I’m not against the police; I’m just afraid of them.
  55. I’m not aiming for an Academy Award.
  56. I’m not always a smiley kind of guy.
  57. I’m not always optimistic. You wouldn’t have all cylinders cooking if you were always like Mary Poppins.
  58. I’m not ambitious. I don’t want to get anywhere, I don’t want anything more. I sometimes think that for me that is the real freedom, that I don’t want anything. I don’t want money or prizes. I want people to know that a war is going to be fought.
  59. I’m not ambitious.
  60. I’m not an academic philosopher, and don’t agree with the way the universities approach the subject. I’m a philosopher only in the very loose sense of someone interested in wisdom and well-being attained through reason. But I’m as interested in psychoanalysis and art as I am in philosophy.
  61. I’m not an acting monk or anything. I’m not, like, the most well-adjusted actor.
  62. I’m not an activist; I don’t look for controversy. I’m not a political person, but I’m a person with compassion. I care passionately about equal rights. I care about human rights. I care about animal rights.
  63. I’m not an advocate for disability issues. Human issues are what interest me. You can’t possibly speak for a diverse group of people. I don’t know what it’s like to be an arm amputee, or have even one flesh-and-bone leg, or to have cerebral palsy.
  64. I’m not an advocate for disability issues. Human issues are what interest me.
  65. I’m not an analyzer. I’ve got a son that analyzes everything and everybody. But I don’t analyze people.
  66. I’m not an animal lover if that means you think things are nice if you can pat them, but I am intoxicated by animals.
  67. I’m not an artist who has an agenda that’s set by the work.
  68. I’m not an awards-driven person in anything. Anytime you do get caught up in that, you usually end up getting whacked.
  69. I’m not an expert on the arms race.
  70. I’m not an impressionist, per se, but if you do any kind of comedy – and they ask you to do that, most of the time – there’s some degree of appreciation, I think, involving somebody you like.
  71. I’m not an old, experienced hand at politics. But I am now seasoned enough to have learned that the hardest thing about any political campaign is how to win without proving that you are unworthy of winning.
  72. I’m not anxious to be anywhere other than where I am right now.
  73. I’m not as good a singer as I am an actor. So that’s why I – the stories I like so much is because I’ve been a story teller for a long time. I started as a singer and found out I didn’t have a very good voice. That’s the reason I went into acting.
  74. I’m not as think as you drunk I am.
  75. I’m not ashamed of my spiritual beliefs, but I in no way incorporate them into this band.
  76. I’m not ashamed of what I am and that I have curves and that I’m thick. I like my body.
  77. I’m not ashamed to say I fear something.
  78. I’m not besotted with the notion of being on CNN to the point that I’m going to suddenly morph into Anderson Cooper or Christiane Amanpour. I’m not a foreign correspondent.
  79. I’m not big on lip color, but I like to have a little something.
  80. I’m not big on to-do lists. Instead, I use e-mail and desktop folders and my online calendar. So when I walk up to my desk, I can focus on the e-mails I’ve flagged and check the folders that are monitoring particular projects and particular blogs.
  81. I’m not big on women looking naive.
  82. I’m not claiming divinity. I’ve never claimed purity of soul. I’ve never claimed to have the answers to life. I only put out songs and answer questions as honestly as I can… But I still believe in peace, love and understanding.
  83. I’m not comfortable being around too many people. I don’t like being out in public too much. I don’t like going to bars. I don’t like doing celebrity stuff. So most of the characters I play are people who don’t always feel comfortable beyond their small circle of friends.
  84. I’m not comically oriented. I get angry and I start complaining and then people start laughing. I don’t even want them to laugh half the time.
  85. I’m not concerned about all hell breaking loose, but that a PART of hell will break loose… it’ll be much harder to detect.
  86. I’m not confrontational, but if someone challenges, I’m not going to back down.
  87. I’m not convinced that women have the education or the sense of their own history enough or that they understand the cruelty of which men are capable and the delight that many men will take in seeing you choose to chain yourself – then they get to say ‘See, you did it yourself.’
  88. I’m not crazy about country-western music. But the lyrics are good.
  89. I’m not denying that monopolies are terrible things, but I am denying that it is readily easy to resolve them through legislation of that nature.
  90. I’m not doing anything Jack Nicholson turned down. Any part that required a character distanced from myself would have been a reach. But the one thing I’ve always done well at, and I’m most devoted to, is my children.
  91. I’m not educated as a filmmaker, so it’s quite a jump for me.
  92. I’m not Elvis. I don’t get chased by paparazzi.
  93. I’m not even sure where home is. Probably Terminal 5. There is a strange sense of calm about arriving back at Heathrow.
  94. I’m not ever going to retire. That’s – that wouldn’t be good, for one, just to go somewhere and sit down and do nothing. Please. No, that’s not moi.
  95. I’m not extremely outgoing, but I’m average, I think. When people meet me they’ll say, ‘Oh you’re not that shy…’ I never said I was! I see where they’re coming from because my biggest single was about being shy at a party – I get it. But it’s not 100% accurate.
  96. I’m not famous; I am simply very well-known to certain people. Famous is something different.
  97. I’m not fashionable.
  98. I’m not focused on the gay and lesbian movement.
  99. I’m not formal and I’m impatient. So I think my team would say that when she starts tapping her pen and the leg starts moving quickly, that it’s time to move on. I’m not good at long, drawn-out kinds of sessions.
  100. I’m not frightened of appearing vulnerable.
  101. I’m not glorifying it at all, I’m just basically telling you that sometimes I have suicidal thoughts. And maybe I should seek help, or maybe it’s not that deep.
  102. I’m not going out and hitting a 95-mph fastball where I can’t see the stitches. I’m not on a professional football team looking to tackle a fullback who is built like solid wood. I’m a thinking person, and I’ve been blessed with the ability to see some things and talk about them in a way that registers in a humorous and funny way.
  103. I’m not going to allow myself to be pushed politically.
  104. I’m not going to appeal to violence or aggression – of course not.
  105. I’m not going to be lectured to.
  106. I’m not going to be the same as I was when I’ve made so many bad mistakes.
  107. I’m not going to change; I’m very stubborn in this way. I am what I am.
  108. I’m not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I’ve always been a freak. So I’ve been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I’m one of those people.
  109. I’m not going to do anything crazy, but I want to do music that I’m passionate about. I’m finally at an age where I can do the music that I grew up loving, which was urban pop, ’90s music. I grew up listening to the divas, so I’m very happy to finally do urban pop. I hope that it’s received well, and it has been so far.
  110. I’m not going to get into the ring with Tolstoy.
  111. I’m not going to get somewhere and say, ‘OK, I’m done.’ Success is never final; I’ll just keep on going. The same way as failure never being fatal. Just keep going. I’m going to the stars and then past them.
  112. I’m not going to go mystery shopping in the NHS because we have a million people every day using it and rating its facilities.
  113. I’m not going to go on Twitter and rant about something.
  114. I’m not going to go run and hide because I’m catching some heat. I’m not going to stay at home and pout.
  115. I’m not going to lie; listen, I’m nice at basketball.
  116. I’m not going to limit myself just because people won’t accept the fact that I can do something else.
  117. I’m not going to put myself in a box.
  118. I’m not going to raise taxes; I’m not going to have a wage increase for public employees.
  119. I’m not going to school just for the academics – I wanted to share ideas, to be around people who are passionate about learning.
  120. I’m not going to sit here now and say ‘do this,’ or ‘do that.’ But you must – must – expunge any vestige of racism.
  121. I’m not going to throw chairs; I’m not going to cuss. I’m not going to do that kind of stuff, because you don’t have to do that. You don’t have to act like that, and you don’t have to live like that in order to be successful.
  122. I’m not gonna give anybody the power to control my life.
  123. I’m not gonna shoot anyone with the pellet gun… Not unless I have to!
  124. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it: It sucks to lose sometimes.
  125. I’m not great at bedtime stories. Bedtime stories are supposed to put the kid to sleep. My kid gets riled up and then my wife has to come in and go, ‘All right! Get out of the room.’
  126. I’m not great on television. That’s one reason I don’t do it very often.
  127. I’m not happy all the time, and I wouldn’t want to be because that would make me a shallow person. But I do try to find the good in everybody.
  128. I’m not here to perform. I’m here to sign autographs. You have to wait till I come back with my own hand.
  129. I’m not in politics.
  130. I’m not in the business of politics.
  131. I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.
  132. I’m not incapable of going through things.
  133. I’m not intensely private – I talk a great deal about my life and my work – I just don’t play the game to excess.
  134. I’m not interested in being famous. I’m interested in doing my job and doing it well, and that’s wrestling, and that’s what I love.
  135. I’m not interested in being liked.
  136. I’m not interested in nostalgia; I’m interested in who I am.
  137. I’m not interested in offending anyone. If homosexuality was an issue for me, I would have moved out of New York years ago. I find that laughable.
  138. I’m not interesting enough on my own that you’d want to see a film about me.
  139. I’m not intimidated by how people perceive me.
  140. I’m not into albums that are meant to sound perfect.
  141. I’m not just a normal guy. I’m a gymnast.
  142. I’m not just a singer-songwriter doing songs in the key of me.
  143. I’m not just going to go back to my bedroom, get a job and ‘get real with myself’ – come on. I’m already too old, and I’m lucky to have a job at all.
  144. I’m not just offensive, I’m very smart about the way that I do it, and that takes a lot of time. People say that young comics shouldn’t be trying these things. That’s ridiculous. You should try everything and see what sticks.
  145. I’m not lesbian; I’m not bisexual; I’m not straight. I’m just curious.
  146. I’m not, like, Daniel Day Lewis. Yet. I will get there!
  147. I’m not like J.K. Rowling, where I know there’s going to be this number of seasons, and I know exactly what’s going to happen. I would be so bored if that was the case. There would be no journey. There would be nothing to discover.
  148. I’m not like most designers, who have to set sail on an exotic getaway to get inspired. Most of the time, it’s on my walk to work, or sitting in the subway and seeing something random or out of context.
  149. I’m not looking for sympathy at all.
  150. I’m not looking to freak people out – eating rodents or bugs. I don’t do that anymore.
  151. I’m not looking to get away from anything. I like what I’ve done. I like what I get to do and I enjoy working with my friends. I loved those movies, but this is incredible.
  152. I’m not macho, I’m not a Mel Gibson sort of person.
  153. I’m not maximized yet.
  154. I’m not much for sitting around and thinking about the past or talking about the past. What does that accomplish? If I can give young people something to think about, like the future, that’s a better use of my time.
  155. I’m not much into speculation.
  156. I’m not much of a gym rat; I’d rather be running, but if it enables me to run faster, then I guess I can tough it out.
  157. I’m not nostalgic for my glory days in college. It was lame for me. Probably because I had no friends.
  158. I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb… and I also know that I’m not blonde.
  159. I’m not on Facebook, and I don’t tweet, but I know plenty of people who love both.
  160. I’m not one for neon colors.
  161. I’m not one of these guys who sits around saying, ‘Gee, I mean, the person had a strange childhood and that’s why he’s doing this horrible thing. Poor Jeffrey Dahmer. He’s just had a bad childhood and that’s why he’s eating people.’ Wait a second! This person should be removed from the planet.
  162. I’m not one of those complicated, mixed-up cats. I’m not looking for the secret to life… I just go on from day to day, taking what comes.
  163. I’m not one of those guys that has a great worldview. I kind of deal with terror and fear and isolation and abandonment.
  164. I’m not one of those guys who wants to die on a stage.
  165. I’m not one of those people who has an act.
  166. I’m not one of those stars that goes out and literally dresses to be photographed. I’m kind of a ‘what you see is what you get’ type of girl when I dress. I go for comfort above everything else.
  167. I’m not one who can get by on six hours sleep night after night. You can see it on my face and hear it in my voice. When working 14-hour days, I have to go home, go to sleep, and wake up in time for crew call. I hate naps. They throw me off the rest of the day.
  168. I’m not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.
  169. I’m not particularly a feminist, but if you get women off the animal cycle of reproduction and give them some say in how many children they’ll have, immediately the floor will rise.
  170. I’m not particularly attention-seeking.
  171. I’m not perfect.
  172. I’m not personally connected to the Internet, although nearly everyone that I know is, and many of them have a great time and no problems with it. And on the surface you can see that the Internet could go an awful long way to educating, enlightening, informing and connecting the world.
  173. I’m not preaching about things you should do, I’m not political or anything. I’m probably not the best role model.
  174. I’m not really a food connoisseur.
  175. I’m not really a Hollywood person. Not that I don’t like L.A., but I’m just a Northern California guy.
  176. I’m not really a mass market writer.
  177. I’m not really book-smart.
  178. I’m not really conservative. I’m conservative on certain things. I believe in less government. I believe in fiscal responsibility and all those things that maybe Republicans used to believe in but don’t any more.
  179. I’m not really in Louis CK’s circle. It’d probably be harder if we were really close and I went off on him.
  180. I’m not really into clubbing, I like to go to parties after events, and those do end up at clubs or bars. But in my free time I go grocery shopping or to the gym, or I talk on the phone.
  181. I’m not really keen on comebacks. Eurythmics was an incredible thing. When I look back on that work, I feel very satisfied with it.
  182. I’m not really one for collaborations, to be quite honest.
  183. I’m not really too worried about what I’m gonna do next, because I just think of my career as, like, having sixty years ahead of me.
  184. I’m not really wise. But I can be cranky.
  185. I’m not religious, but I understand the need for faith and hope.
  186. I’m not resigned, but I’m realistic too. The statistics in my case are very poor. Not many people come through esophageal cancer and live to talk about it, or not for long. And the other wager is, the part of the wager, it’s a certainty you’ll have a terrible time and you may wish you were dying because it’s an awful process.
  187. I’m not Rihanna. I’m not cool. When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug, not a photo, and they want that because they like my work.
  188. I’m not running around as a continual ray of sunshine. It’s just I don’t believe in wasting time feeling sorry for myself. Get over it.
  189. I’m not saying that being gay is what defines me, but at the same time, if you feel like you have to hide it, then it becomes what defines you. You keep it hidden, and the secret becomes you.
  190. I’m not saying that hip-hop needs gay rappers or anything, but they need to stop being so close-minded because that will just cause the genre to fail. Look at pop. Pop doesn’t discriminate against people. Look at Lady Gaga, y’know what I mean?
  191. I’m not searching for hard news; I’m not a journalist, but I’m interested in pushing to boundaries of where we can do the kind of stories that we want to do. I mean, it’s a big world and CNN has made it a lot bigger and they haven’t flinched.
  192. I’m not sexist, I’m just a realist.
  193. I’m not signing on to direct ‘Black Panther.’ I think I’ll just say we had different ideas about what the story would be. Marvel has a certain way of doing things, and I think they’re fantastic, and a lot of people love what they do. I loved that they reached out to me.
  194. I’m not somebody that just wants to hold up a white flag and say, ‘Let’s all just get along.’ I think people that do horrible things should be held accountable.
  195. I’m not somebody that thinks about destiny and fate, but I don’t walk away from it when something unfolds.
  196. I’m not someone who likes to be in the whole Hollywood tabloids.
  197. I’m not sophisticated when it comes to politics, when it comes to journalism.
  198. I’m not spending every second thinking about the World Cup, but it’s always in my mind when I make choices and decisions.
  199. I’m not such a big fan of having a linear answer to things.
  200. I’m not such a big star. I am just a little planet. In Spain, people don’t put so much attention on the star system. But here in America, I can feel it. Mostly, people are very, very nice. But there are also a bunch of fanatics behind the stars.
  201. I’m not such a nuisance to the world, and the kick I get out of living can, I suppose, justify the impositions I make on it. But when life isn’t so fun, well, then I start to wonder. What’s the point of going on if it’s just trouble for us both? My friends will miss me, I am told.
  202. I’m not super comfortable in my skin. I have to make it work for me, and that usually amounts to making it uncomfortable for everyone else.
  203. I’m not super, super religious. If this is okay to say, I’m more culturally Jewish.
  204. I’m not sure if I’m going to get into coaching. I’m sure I’ll stay in soccer somehow.
  205. I’m not sure if I’ve learned anything from show business. Life in general has taught me if you’re kind to people, everything gets easier. Being a decent person really smoothes the way for you and everyone else.
  206. I’m not Ted Nugent. My house is run, essentially, by an adopted, fully clawed cat with a mean nature. I would never hunt. I would never wear fur. I would never go to a bullfight. I’m not really a meat and potatoes guy.
  207. I’m not that big of a reader, to be honest.
  208. I’m not that hands-on as a grandfather.
  209. I’m not that keen on the idea of being unconscious.
  210. I’m not that much of a socialist compared to Eisenhower.
  211. I’m not the best at choosing what’s good and what’s bad. I wouldn’t even know what’s a good pop song and what’s a bad one. With that said, I wanted to say what’s true to me. Some people might say that the Skrillex record was pop, but that was just about the chemistry between me and my boy.
  212. I’m not the best person to analyze any kind of evolution in my work, but I do feel like it’s been an ongoing struggle to basically teach myself how to tell the kinds of stories that interest me in comics form.
  213. I’m not the coolest person in the world. I’m not the sexiest Diva or the strongest Diva. I know who I am. I’m not the most popular person, and I’m kind of dorky, and I’m someone you can see at your school or as your neighbor, and I think people like that.
  214. I’m not the fastest writer. I can’t just crank out ideas that are good enough.
  215. I’m not the greatest; I’m the double greatest. Not only do I knock ’em out, I pick the round.
  216. I’m not the healthiest, but I am healthy. I’m healthy to the point where there are things that I have to eat that I don’t want to eat, but I eat it because I’m enjoying staying alive.
  217. I’m not the kind of actress who asks a lot of questions of my directors unless it’s something I really need to know.
  218. I’m not the kind of cat that’s going to cut off an ear if I can’t do something.
  219. I’m not the kind of person who would throw himself into some exciting or dangerous situation just to get material. So I tend to go about my normal, boring life and just try to look at things a little more closely.
  220. I’m not the only one working for democracy in Burma – there are so many people who have worked for it because they believe that this is the only way we can maintain the dignity of our people.
  221. I’m not the sexy girl. I’m more youthful and innocent, the girl who wears jeans and T-shirts and sneakers. But fans have accepted that I’m a tomboy. There’s a different group of people who find that attractive.
  222. I’m not the type of guy to go so deep with the concept songs, but there’s deep thought in everything. Maybe it’s not just a repetitive hook telling you what the song is about – you have to use your brain a little bit.
  223. I’m not the type of person that is forced.
  224. I’m not the type who’ll yell about my achievements from the rooftops.
  225. I’m not the voice of reason; I’m more the guy using these offensive topics as fodder to raise tension in a joke.
  226. I’m not thinking about anything when I’m climbing, which is part of the appeal. I’m focused on executing what’s in front of me.
  227. I’m not too big on feelings.
  228. I’m not totally blind to the fact that I like people to see my work, but if it’s not something I would enjoy seeing in a magazine, then I think I shouldn’t be making it. I think that I don’t represent only myself, I represent more people; I mean, if I like it, then I think more people will like it because I think I’m quite a normal guy.
  229. I’m not trying to be an inspiration, but I’m flattered to be considered one.
  230. I’m not trying to be cheeky, because if I was you’d know about it.
  231. I’m not trying to be fashionable. Never was!
  232. I’m not trying to be sexy. It’s just my way of expressing myself when I move around.
  233. I’m not trying to be something that I’m not, and I think a lot of people can relate to that. They want something that’s real, and I think I give that to them.
  234. I’m not trying to do anything except entertain America.
  235. I’m not trying to get in good graces of anybody. I just want to be myself and be the guy that helps out in the community, because that’s who I am.
  236. I’m not trying to run away from my fans at all. I want them to grow with me.
  237. I’m not trying to unite Asian people with my music.
  238. I’m not up for changing the Tenth Amendment or the Fourteenth Amendment, the First Amendment or the Second Amendment.
  239. I’m not very ambitious at all.
  240. I’m not very articulate.
  241. I’m not very daring in my street style, usually because there’s a photographer around!
  242. I’m not very interested in myself. I do have a deep moral belief that you should always look out at other things and not be self-centred.
  243. I’m not very popular, because they’re bleak and they’re mournful and all the rest of it and I get censorious reviews. But I’m only writing fiction. I’m not making munitions, so I think it’s acceptable.
  244. I’m not working at the Chevron, although I’d probably be the best person to work the night shift. Look at me. Nobody would try to steal a Snickers on my watch.
  245. I’m not your typical quarterback. I don’t like when people say, ‘Quarterbacks aren’t supposed to run,’ or, ‘Quarterbacks aren’t supposed to work out a certain way.’
  246. I’m obsessed with adolescence. I love to write about people in their 20s. It’s such a fraught and exciting and kind of horrible time.
  247. I’m obsessed with eyeliner – the darker and kohl-ier, the better.
  248. I’m obsessed with Kate Middleton. Obsessed. I loved the Royal Wedding. I was so cynical going into it, and pseudo-political about the whole thing, but as soon as I saw her, I was utterly charmed. I’m just completely enchanted by Kate and William.
  249. I’m obsessed with Radiohead. They’re just the greatest band on the planet.
  250. I’m obsessed with the form of a toolbox. The idea of a portable kit that has everything you might need ignites something inside me. It’s like Batman’s utility belt.
  251. I’m obsessed with this show called ‘Workaholics.’
  252. I’m obviously not a rapper, and I don’t have any claims to be one, really.
  253. I’m odd looking. Sometimes I think I look like a funny muppet.
  254. I’m of the school of thought where, if you can’t sort something out for yourself, no one can help you. Rehab is great for some people but not others.
  255. I’m of the school of thought where if you can’t sort something out for yourself then no one can help you.
  256. I’m often reassured in a bizarre – perhaps perverse – way when I find in the archive stuff that contradicts what my assumptions have been. That’s interesting and exciting.
  257. I’m old enough and cranky enough now that if someone tried to tell me what to do, I’d tell them where to put it.
  258. I’m old enough to know that a red carpet’s just a rug, and I’ve been able to enjoy the pageantry without letting it go to my head.
  259. I’m old-fashioned that way. I don’t believe you turn the president down.
  260. I’m old, not dead.
  261. I’m on a mission. If I can make even one person not enjoy something they’re currently enjoying, it’s all worth it!
  262. I’m on the patch right now. Where it releases small dosages of approval until I no longer crave it, and then I’m gonna rip it off.
  263. I’m on the very blackest part of the black list.
  264. I’m one of seven kids. That’ll keep your ego in check.
  265. I’m one of the slowest drivers on the road. I mosey along. If you’re doing anything too fast, including living life too fast, that creates sudden death. If I have to be somewhere on time, I make sure I leave early enough.
  266. I’m one of the world’s most self-conscious people. I really have to struggle.
  267. I’m one of them guys that tries to make everything the best of the best, so sometimes I’m out of control with it.
  268. I’m one of those crazy people, if I’m watching the trailer for a movie and I’m really excited by it, I’ll turn it off because I don’t want to know anything. I want to be surprised because I love that more than knowing anything.
  269. I’m one of those introverted people who simply feels a lot better after spending time alone thinking through ideas and emotions. This is a sign, I’ve come to think, of a kind of emotional disturbance – a reaction to inner fragility. I wish I were more able to just act and do, rather than constantly have to retreat and examine and think.
  270. I’m one of those people who doesn’t want to miss out on anything.
  271. I’m one of those who cut off seeing people after a certain time, when the weight is gone and they sound like the dementia is very advanced – I don’t want to see that. I don’t even go in to look at the body. That’s not my last memory.
  272. I’m one of those writers who can’t talk about what they’re working on. The entire four years I was writing ‘House of Sand and Fog,’ my wife never saw a word of it. I just have to keep it in the womb, and then everyone can have a crack at it.
  273. I’m only… I’m only unhappy when the reviews are bad, but give me a good review and I’m a… I’m just screaming all over the place with joy.
  274. I’m only sort of a politician.
  275. I’m open to reading almost anything – fiction, nonfiction – as long as I know from the first sentence or two that this is a voice I want to listen to for a good long while. It has much to do with imagery and language, a particular perspective, the assured knowledge of the particular universe the writer has created.
  276. I’m ordinarily pretty correct in what I say.
  277. I’m over being a pop star. I don’t wanna be a hot girl. I wanna be iconic. And I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. I feel like I’m highly respected, which is more important than any award or any amount of records. And I feel like there comes a point when being a pop star is not enough.
  278. I’m overwhelmed by the pain in the world; I’m affected by the news very much, and adding that to my work was becoming a little bit too much.
  279. I’m paranoid about shopping. I get irritable. I find it tedious and taxing. People say shopping is retail therapy, but I need therapy after shopping.
  280. I’m part of history.
  281. I’m part of the generation that grew up with great rappers like 2Pac and Biggie and people like Amy Winehouse. We’ve seen a lot of different artists come and go. Even people who are still here, they seem consumed and blinded by fame. It may not have taken them out physically, but they have been taken out.
  282. I’m part of the mushball middle. I consider ‘confused’ the majority position because, thankfully, most people would rather be uncertain some of the time than 100% positive all the time – even when they’re wrong.
  283. I’m patient.
  284. I’m personally a moderate and a registered independent, so I’m not strongly Democratic or strongly Republican.
  285. I’m picking and choosing in terms of the stress factor. If it’s not fun, I’m not going to do it.
  286. I’m pink, therefore, I’m spam!
  287. I’m pretty blessed when it comes to clear skin. I owe that to being Cape Verdian. My whole family has great skin. My grandfather is 80 but doesn’t look a day over 50. And we all love the sun, too, so blessed is an understatement!
  288. I’m pretty consistently fit because I think it’s an important part of my work, but I will ramp it up just because I have been enjoying myself a little bit too much.
  289. I’m pretty good at remaining calm during an emergency. My house burned down when I was 12, which made me really pragmatic about what needed to be done. But I can be bad in that I compartmentalize a lot of emotions and push them away to deal with them at a later date.
  290. I’m pretty good at sticking to what I know. You don’t see me social commentating on health-care or presidential debates. I talk about what I know because I’m petrified of being wrong.
  291. I’m pretty good at weaseling my way into a job, even if I have no business being there.
  292. I’m pretty goofy. I laugh at my own jokes.
  293. I’m pretty Sicilian if I’ve been crossed. I don’t seek revenge, but I never forget. And I make it hard to repair, which is not a great quality because if people held me to that standard, no one would be around me – ever.
  294. I’m pretty sure I would never do a full frontal in a movie – for personal reasons, I wouldn’t really want to show that.
  295. I’m pretty sure in my older years, I’ll be doing old-time flavored folk-mountain music.
  296. I’m pretty sure my house in Florida is haunted! He’s a nice ghost though.
  297. I’m probably a believer in abandoning too-big-to-fail firms or breaking them up in some way so that the system can try to take care of itself. I imagine you’re not going to get there, and therefore, I suspect regulation is what’s going to be required.
  298. I’m probably not as good in the topics that I’m less passionate about than the ones I spend all my time on.
  299. I’m probably not long-term-relationship material for now.
  300. I’m probably the most honest person you’ll ever meet – to a fault, like, I-will-hurt-your-feelings honest. I’m sure if I lied about anything, it would have been silly, but I haven’t retained that information.
  301. I’m proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.
  302. I’m proud of my sexuality.
  303. I’m proud that LearnVest is creating content that helps expectant moms tackle their finances. As much as possible, we hope to lessen the stress during what is said to be such a life-changing time.
  304. I’m pulling out, and I’m going to concentrate every ounce of time and energy over the next week working to defeat the recall because I realize now that’s the only way to defeat Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  305. I’m quite contrary. If people agree on something, I tend to gravitate the other way by my nature. I don’t like to be told what to do. I think it goes back to school. I like to do things I want to do and I really don’t like doing what I don’t want to do.
  306. I’m quite good, though I say it myself, at making strangers feel at ease.
  307. I’m quite interested in my own mental processes, simply because I’m a failed scientist, and because I’m interested in how the brain and the mind works, and I like to avoid easy descriptions.
  308. I’m quite interested in the absolute roots of narrative, why we tell stories at all: where the monsters come from.
  309. I’m quite lazy.
  310. I’m quite obsessed with the idea of nailing the girl friendship. It’s such an art, so delicate.
  311. I’m quite shy, so I hate seeing my private life splashed over the papers.
  312. I’m rap’s vigilante. I’m out for justice.
  313. I’m rather inclined to liking people.
  314. I’m rather kind of old school, thinking that when an artist does his work, it’s no longer his… I just see what people make of it.
  315. I’m real pleased and humbled by the support that the fans show.
  316. I’m really addicted to water. I carry a bottle of water everywhere I go. I know people think I’m a nut.
  317. I’m really blessed to have an amazing family.
  318. I’m really clear about what my life mission is now. There’s no more depression or lethargy, and I feel like I’ve returned to the athlete I once was. I’m integrating all the parts of me – jock, musician, writer, poet, philosopher – and becoming stronger as a result.
  319. I’m really easily affected by horror films. I have pretty strong reactions to them.
  320. I’m really fond of ‘Real Life’ because I think it anticipated a whole movement. And people forget, they talk about ‘Spinal Tap,’ but that wasn’t… this was a mockumentary a long time before that. It was one of the early, early sort of mockumentaries.
  321. I’m really good at gymnastics, and that’s about it.
  322. I’m really good at sleeping on planes. I mean, I smell jet fuel and I’m out; I’m asleep for takeoff.
  323. I’m really happy to be me, and I’d like to think people like me more because I’m happy with myself and not because I refuse to conform to anything.
  324. I’m really in touch with my Italian roots. My mom’s whole side of the family is there.
  325. I’m really interested in harvesting surplus energy, energy that surrounds but we never really use.
  326. I’m really interested in modern history, but to fulfill a History degree at Brown you have to do modern and pre-modern.
  327. I’m really interested in photography, like every other human being.
  328. I’m really into lip cream. I have this one by Hourglass: it’s an oil with this gold-tip applicator, and it’s schmancy-schmancy. When you get to the point that your lips are cracking, the price is worth it.
  329. I’m really into simple things – things you could wear every day.
  330. I’m really laid back but I still like to dress up sometimes.
  331. I’m really lucky with the people around me. They know me, so they don’t confuse the issues, really. They know what a book is and they know who I am and they know the difference between the two.
  332. I’m really motivated by music, and I love dancing, even if it’s just by myself in my room or if it’s going out with my friends.
  333. I’m really not a TV junkie… OK, I kind of am a TV junkie, but I’m much more of a movie junkie – my junk food is romantic comedies I’ve seen a million times.
  334. I’m really not techno-savvy – that’s just not my personality.
  335. I’m really not that funny in real life! But I am the best audience one could find. I love to laugh.
  336. I’m reasonably optimistic about the future, especially the future of the United States – for the century, at least.
  337. I’m relevant because I fill a void for people who aren’t doing what they want to do in life.
  338. I’m remote from most technology to the point that I’m kind of Amish.
  339. I’m responsible for starting a whole new school of pretension.
  340. I’m rubbish – I’m really not good at my beauty regimes.
  341. I’m running for governor; I’m not running for a legislative office.
  342. I’m saving that rocker for the day when I feel as old as I really am.
  343. I’m scared of audiences. One show in Amsterdam I was so nervous, I escaped out the fire exit. I’ve thrown up a couple of times. Once in Brussels, I projectile vomited on someone. I just gotta bear it. But I don’t like touring. I have anxiety attacks a lot.
  344. I’m scared of audiences.
  345. I’m scared of horses, and I don’t know how to shoot them, but that’s what excites me. After 40 years old, if you don’t do some things that really terrify you, I don’t think they’re worth doing.
  346. I’m Scottish first, and it’s odd to hear that I’m a Scottish-American.
  347. I’m scrappy.
  348. I’m searching, as we all are, for ways to feel good about myself. Certainly, looking in the mirror doesn’t do it!
  349. I’m selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I’m out of control, and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.
  350. I’m sick of giving creeps money off my soul.
  351. I’m sick of seeing my face on television.
  352. I’m sick to death of people saying we’ve made 11 albums that sounds exactly the same, Infact, we’ve made 12 albums that sound exactly the same.
  353. I’m so busy and there’s so much going on, that the gym or a workout can’t be a last minute thought, like, ‘I have nothing to do today I’m going to go to the gym.’ Now it’s, ‘When am I going to find time to work out tomorrow?’
  354. I’m so comfortable on my snowboard that I don’t have to think about it very much; it’s somewhat second nature.
  355. I’m so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in bed before the room was dark.
  356. I’m so glad I never feel important, it does complicate life!
  357. I’m so grateful for what Disney gave me and the experiences that I got, but at the end of the day, I can do so much more than what I did on that channel and in those movies.
  358. I’m so happy I discovered early how wonderful music makes me feel.
  359. I’m so happy that I finished college. Going into this crazy vortex of scrutiny is tough. If I was younger than I was now and I was going to fashion shows, I might have this distorted sense of self. I might rely on those cameras. Because when I was 18, I was half-baked.
  360. I’m so happy to be in a committed relationship.
  361. I’m so happy with what has happened in my life.
  362. I’m so jealous of people who have crushes on people they go to school with or work with. That’s such a blessing. You actually get to see them all the time and spend time with them.
  363. I’m so nervous. I’ve always been nervous, ever since I was a kid.
  364. I’m so not interested in producing, other than doing my own work, producing my own films. I only do it as favors, for other people to get their films made.
  365. I’m so not macho. It’s crazy. My man cave is so not a man cave.
  366. I’m so proud to be an Army brat, but it was not an easy life. Moving around so much, skating was that one constant thing I had to hold on to.
  367. I’m so shy now I wear sunglasses everywhere I go.
  368. I’m so thankful for that struggling period. That time is really great where you have no idea what’s going to happen.
  369. I’m so thankful for the Internet because actors and singers and performers now have a way to connect with their fans on a very personal level which I think is quite special.
  370. I’m so unmaterialistic in every way. If you saw my apartment, it would explain a lot, I think. It’s not so much a mess, but it just needs to have some feng shui or a real ‘Queer Eye’ makeover or whatever.
  371. I’m someone who is very supportive of us eliminating all discrimination.
  372. I’m someone who likes plowing new ground, then walking away from it. I get bored easily. For me, the big thrill comes with the discovering.
  373. I’m someone who’s always on the go and crazy busy, so I like to keep snacks in my car and at the office, and Cracker Jack’d is a really yummy snack that I love. I definitely am a big snacker.
  374. I’m sometimes a cartoonist, and there’s an audience for that, and I’m sometimes an illustrator, and there’s an audience for that.
  375. I’m sorry, but in my generation and where I came from, only sailors got tattoos. Not ladies.
  376. I’m sorry, it’s true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We’re born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It’s been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much – if at all.
  377. I’m sorry that I haven’t won the PGA Championship. That would be something that would have pleased me very much. I suppose when I look back, I have a lot of reasons and excuses for not having won the PGA.
  378. I’m sorry that we have to have a Washington presence. We thrived during our first 16 years without any of this. I never made a political visit to Washington and we had no people here. It wasn’t on our radar screen. We were just making great software.
  379. I’m sorry, you leftists: you’re not the only people whose motives are pure.
  380. I’m sort of like Jean-Paul Goude, the graphic designer who used to style Grace Jones and shoot all her visuals, just meaning that I use all mediums in one – music, fashion, and art. I’m hitting it from all angles.
  381. I’m sort of the Antichrist to the Conservative Party.
  382. I’m speaking for all of us. I’m the spokesman for a generation.
  383. I’m spending a year dead for tax reasons.
  384. I’m sponsored by the solar company Goal Zero, and they were gracious enough to install panels on my van and a nice battery system for the inside. I have lights and a fridge inside the van. And of course I had panels installed on my mom’s house.
  385. I’m starting to find out that a lot of people that you wouldn’t think listen to me really do.
  386. I’m starting to get a following on Twitter. That’s a really awesome power to have. It gives me the opportunity to make any kind of art I want.
  387. I’m starting to realize that people are beginning to want to know about me. It’s a jolly strange idea.
  388. I’m starting to think my narrators’ sentences are getting too big for them, and they are getting to sound a bit samey and, more disturbingly, a bit too much like me.
  389. I’m still a geek on the inside, that’s the important thing.
  390. I’m still a huge Yankees fan. Growing up, Jeter was my guy, but Bernie Williams was my favorite player.
  391. I’m still a novice student.
  392. I’m still a promising actor. It’s better to be climbing even if you have a lot of falls than to be descending. Maybe that’s kept me young. I haven’t gotten to any peak yet.
  393. I’m still a recluse. I still hate everyone. I’m still a misanthrope.
  394. I’m still doing what I’ve always wanted to do, and how big it gets or how much money I make for it or how popular I am in the public’s eye is really not that important, even though it’s hard to let that go.
  395. I’m still fiercely ambitious.
  396. I’m still living at least five parallel lives, honestly! I wonder about it. I have no idea how that happens.
  397. I’m still living the life where you get home and open the fridge and there’s half a pot of yogurt and a half a can of flat Coca-Cola.
  398. I’m still not comfortable recommending that people eat saturated fat with abandon, but it’s clear to me that sugar, flour and oxidized seed oils create inflammatory effects in the body that almost certainly bear most of the responsibility for elevating heart disease risk.
  399. I’m still shocked when people say, ‘You haven’t done a studio record in 20 years.’ I try to make excuses for it, but the truth is I just wasn’t with it.
  400. I’m still trying to improve. Everything I can do to improve every part of my game – I’m going to do it.
  401. I’m still very critical of myself in film.
  402. I’m strictly for Stevenson. I don’t dig the intellectual bit, but I’m telling you, man, he knows the most.
  403. I’m strong. I’m outspoken. I feel like I’m equal to men. I can walk in the woods just as much and as far as a man can. Yet I’m still female. I’m very female.
  404. I’m stupid, I’m ugly, I’m dumb, I smell. Did I mention I’m stupid?
  405. I’m such a geek, and have always been a real nerd.
  406. I’m such a huge ‘Arrested Development’ fan.
  407. I’m such a kid at heart.
  408. I’m such a late bloomer.
  409. I’m such a strong-headed person and so stubborn, I don’t need someone to be sweet to me.
  410. I’m such an emotional and sensitive person, so it only makes sense that my songs are as well.
  411. I’m suggesting that, ironically, the secret to becoming a world ‘hyperpower’ is tolerance. If you look at history, you see great powers being very tolerant in their rise to global dominance.
  412. I’m suggesting that we abolish the social function of prisons.
  413. I’m super organized, but a horrible house cleaner.
  414. I’m supposed to have a Ph.D. on the subject of women. But the truth is I’ve flunked more often than not. I’m very fond of women; I admire them. But, like all men, I don’t understand them.
  415. I’m sure a lot of people out there make mistakes.
  416. I’m sure a psychologist would see something highly significant in how absent-minded I am. I mean I’d forget my head if it wasn’t attached to my neck by muscles, ligaments and my esophagus.
  417. I’m sure I had low-level scurvy all of my childhood.
  418. I’m sure I’ve devoted enough thought to Rush Limbaugh for one lifetime.
  419. I’m sure not afraid of success and I’ve learned not to be afraid of failure. The only thing I’m afraid of now is of being someone I don’t like much.
  420. I’m sure that at no point in my life could I ever have shown the kind of focus and discipline and commitment necessary to work a station at elBulli or Le Bernardin. No. That ain’t me.
  421. I’m sure that some of them will be very hard and I’ll have a sense of achievement again, but nothing will mean the same to me – there’s no other problem in mathematics that could hold me the way that this one did.
  422. I’m sure there are people who survive tragedy without humor, but I’ve never met any of them. Nor would I be particularly interested in writing about them if I did meet them.
  423. I’m sure there’s somebody out there who doesn’t like Betty White because she’s short and has white hair.
  424. I’m sure we, the American people, are the butt of jokes by those in power.
  425. I’m sure we’ve all had that annoying experience when we desperately need a flashlight, we find one, and the batteries are out. Imagine how much money we would save and the amount of toxins leached into the soil, etc., reduced if we didn’t use any batteries in flashlights!
  426. I’m sure when they partied when Rome was burning, that was a really great party.
  427. I’m sure you can imagine it’s pretty frustrating to have people talking about your private life who don’t know anything about it.
  428. I’m surprised by the talent I find all over. There are always new chefs who propose many interesting new ideas, new ways of looking at ingredients.
  429. I’m surrounded by geniuses, which is really not good for my own personal self-esteem!
  430. I’m swanning round the world looking at the most fabulously interesting things. Such good fortune.
  431. I’m taking dance lessons and getting stuck in. It’s a great way of keeping fit, and it’s obviously a big part of Bollywood movies, so I need to learn.
  432. I’m tall, fat, rather bald, red-faced, double-chinned, black-haired, have a deep voice, and wear glasses for reading.
  433. I’m teaming up with Quaker and PLAY 60 to encourage kids to eat right, stay active and do something outside for at least 60 minutes a day.
  434. I’m technologically an imbecile. But I do use the camera phone!
  435. I’m telling the same story in every film.
  436. I’m terrible at reading scripts. I love to read, and I hate reading scripts.
  437. I’m terrified of losing my voice.
  438. I’m thankful for the incredible advances in medicine that have taken place during my lifetime. I almost certainly wouldn’t still be here if it weren’t for them.
  439. I’m the biggest Blackhawks fan ever. I’ve been going to games since I was 6 years old.
  440. I’m the biggest Westbrook fan, I think, there is. You know what I mean? Because he reminds me so much of myself as far as his heart and laying it on the line night in and night out. Just a guy that’s going to bring it every single night.
  441. I’m the Bjorn Boerg of table tennis.
  442. I’m the CEO of A$AP Worldwide. But as you can see, when I’m with them, everybody’s equal. We don’t really base our love off of finances or who’s superior by financial status. We’re all equal. When I’m with them, I’m letting them shine ’cause it’s just like how it used to be. They still there. I’m just chilling out front.
  443. I’m the cofounder of Keep a Child Alive. We provide medicine for families affected by HIV and AIDS in places like Africa and India.
  444. I’m the end of the line; absurd and appalling as it may seem, serious New York theater has died in my lifetime.
  445. I’m the Ernest Hemingway of 140 characters.
  446. I’m the goofball. I’m the person cracking people up.
  447. I’m the greatest thing that ever lived! I’m the king of the world! I’m a bad man. I’m the prettiest thing that ever lived.
  448. I’m the interpreter. I’m the one who takes your words and brings them to life. I was trained to sing and dance and laugh, and that’s what I want to do.
  449. I’m the kind of person, if I see something, like a funny video, I want to share it. With Twitter and Tumblr you can do that on a mass scale, and people get to know your personality.
  450. I’m the kind of person that just goes in and does my job.
  451. I’m the kind of person who always likes to be doing something.
  452. I’m the kind of person who does not want to be anywhere that I’m not wanted.
  453. I’m the kind of person who wants the people around me to be comfortable, to laugh, and to have a fabulous time – I want them to be as happy as I am.
  454. I’m the kinda person, you gotta fight for everything you get. You gotta believe in yourself.
  455. I’m the kindest, most supportive friend ever, probably to my own detriment, but I hope that I am toughening up a little bit.
  456. I’m the king of the anthems.
  457. I’m the lady next door when I’m not on stage.
  458. I’m the most recognized and loved man that ever lived cuz there weren’t no satellites when Jesus and Moses were around, so people far away in the villages didn’t know about them.
  459. I’m the most stubborn person I know.
  460. I’m the most successful bad player ever.
  461. I’m the New York Jew who actually grew up in Minnesota.
  462. I’m the No. 1 developer in New York, I’m the biggest in Atlantic City, and maybe we’ll keep it that way.
  463. I’m the oldest of six children and I had my own first baby when I was 23. So I’ve always been interested in babies, and I had lots of opportunities to watch them.
  464. I’m the only person who’s uninspired by the Starbucks mocha peppermint whatever-it-is.
  465. I’m the person who wouldn’t send back my food even if I got steak when I’d ordered fish.
  466. I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.
  467. I’m the slowest driver in the world.
  468. I’m the type of skater that needs to stay upbeat and relaxed, open, because if I stay quiet, I get in my head, and then I start to think too much and start to doubt.
  469. I’m the type who’d be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn’t going to. I’m the type who’d like to sit home and watch every party that I’m invited to on a monitor in my bedroom.
  470. I’m the world’s expert on sterotypes held by academics about athletes and held by athletes about academics. To me, both of them are caricatures.
  471. I’m tired of demographic appeal being more important than talent. I want to fight against that.
  472. I’m tired of liberals dividing this country up into little groups, setting them upon each other, breeding spite and envy, and then having the nerve to accuse conservatives of hatred.
  473. I’m too shy for personal appearances, and I’ve found out that anytime I talk about my writing, I can’t do any writing for many weeks afterward.
  474. I’m torn between wanting to connect with what I grew up with and what’s available, living in Brooklyn. I don’t have a grimy supermarket that decapitates frogs’ heads nearby.
  475. I’m totally an anxious mess all the time. There’s a constant dialogue going on in my brain, and it’s just reminding me of all the failures that I have had, and all of the things I need to do, and all of the things I’m not doing good enough.
  476. I’m tri-racial: African-American, Native American and Euro – that’s the Scotch-Irish part.
  477. I’m trouble, but in a good way.
  478. I’m trying my best to keep up with all this new technology, and I surround myself with all these wonderful people that are in the know and kind of help me out with all that.
  479. I’m trying my hand at directing. I’m doing an independent movie that we haven’t started casting yet, but it’s like an edgy version of ‘Lethal Weapon’ and ’48 Hours,’ only with two women in it.
  480. I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.
  481. I’m trying to construct a world that maximises the probability that SpaceX continues its mission without me.
  482. I’m trying to convey to my audience that you really can’t judge a book by its cover, and there’s more to the universe than you can see with your eyes.
  483. I’m trying to figure out, Chairman of what Board? People come up to me and seriously say: ‘Well, what are you Chairman of?’ And I can’t answer them.
  484. I’m trying to have some longevity in this business. If that means not working for a while and just picking the right job, so be it.
  485. I’m trying to keep a level head. You have to be careful out in the world. It’s so easy to get turned.
  486. I’m trying to make the poems as musical as I can – from the inception. So that whether they’re read on the page, or people read them aloud, or I read them aloud, the musicality will be kind of a given.
  487. I’m typically a ‘just drink water’ kind of guy. I was a bodybuilder in high school, so I used to – food to me was, ‘there are this many grams of carbohydrates and proteins, and I need these micronutrients in order to grow and be fit,’ and I ate in order to live and not live in order to eat, and I think most people are the opposite.
  488. I’m ugly.
  489. I’m unpolished, I guess.
  490. I’m unwilling to eat food that has been adulterated.
  491. I’m used to American actors who have a movie career thinking television acting is beneath them.
  492. I’m used to changing a lot of the dialogue. But if I feel like the script is working, I don’t want to mess with it.
  493. I’m used to getting up at 7, getting breakfast, getting the kids off to school, and doing the mommy thing and the wife thing and the daughter thing.
  494. I’m usually torn by, ‘What’s the role of government to cure injustice?’ Families, churches, and schools can be more of an instrument of change.
  495. I’m usually very critical of myself.
  496. I’m usually woken by a vibration on my up-band. It’s the gradual vibration for about ten seconds, and then the chimes of my blue light. It’s just a way to wake gently. It all gently puts me into awake-mode. I play music off of my Sonos playlist. ‘The Rachmaninoff Concerto 3 in D-minor’, 1st movement.
  497. I’m usually working on my own mythology, my own realm of created characters. Stories in mythology inspire me, though I may not be conscious of it.
  498. I’m very analytical, I’m very precise.
  499. I’m very at ease, and I like it. 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. I’m rather surprised at who I am, because I’m actually like my dad!
  500. I’m very aware of my own background. I’m Irish, French, and then a little bit of everything else thrown in, ranging from German to Native American. We’re talking about tiny drops of blood.
  501. I’m very aware that when one is acting in the theater, you do become kind of animal about it. And you’re reliant on instincts rather than tact a lot of the time.
  502. I’m very awkward when I have time off. I don’t know what to do with myself. It’s weird not to work.
  503. I’m very big on focus.
  504. I’m very comfortable with how I look. I always have been. I think I look pretty good. There’s nothing I want to change. I’m pretty happy with what I’ve got.
  505. I’m very confident. Even when I read people saying horrible stuff about my weight.
  506. I’m very crafty! One time I made a television set out of a cardboard box – Everybody thought it was a lark! This was the beginning of a love affair with the arts.
  507. I’m very curious, I guess, as a human being.
  508. I’m very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.
  509. I’m very detail-oriented, which is good and bad. Because I will wake up in the middle of the night thinking about something or seeing a mistake, thinking about it, and I immediately send an email – I’m very focused on details.
  510. I’m very disappointed in Obama. I was very much in support of him in the beginning, but I cannot support war. I cannot support droning. I cannot support capitulating to the banks.
  511. I’m very distanced from the comics industry. I love the comics medium, but I have no time for the industry.
  512. I’m very domestic; I love cleaning. I love cooking. I like waiting on people. I just like to make things. I don’t break that down to be weakness, or the only things women can do, or putting me back 20 years.
  513. I’m very driven by what I do. I am certainly very competitive. I like people who represent the best at what they do, and if that turns you into a perfectionist, then maybe I am.
  514. I’m very excited about having the Internet in my den.
  515. I’m very fortunate to have spent so much time in the industry and to have lived through several generations of filmmakers, actors and technicians. There’s a huge volume of experience seeing people change and seeing content change.
  516. I’m very free-spirited and crazy. I love to have fun, and I like doing stupid things. At the same time, I’m like a 35-year-old. I have a house. I have a car. I have a steady job. I have a business, and I have to make serious decisions.
  517. I’m very good at delegating – people work much better when they have a real sense of responsibility. But at the same time, I don’t like surprises. I don’t pore over every shoot, but I do like to be aware at all times of what’s going on.
  518. I’m very good at what I do, and I don’t turn my hand to something unless I’m very good at it, frankly.
  519. I’m very grateful that I don’t have to wear heels, because I can barely walk in heels. If I were to skip, it would be deadly.
  520. I’m very grateful that I’ve had the opportunities I’ve had.
  521. I’m very happy. I like my work and the various aspects of it – going around the world, teaching the gospel according to St. Albert.
  522. I’m very happy to have set a world record in Tallinn. Estonians sure do love athletics and combined events!
  523. I’m very happy with my body.
  524. I’m very inspired by past music.
  525. I’m very interested in tea. I wouldn’t mind being involved in some aspect of the tea industry.
  526. I’m very into fantasy films.
  527. I’m very keenly aware that there aren’t very many women writing literary fiction in Ireland and so that gives me a sense that what I say matters, in some small way.
  528. I’m very low-key. I don’t really blend in, so it’s difficult to go out in public. I like to do things that are kind of quiet, whether it’s a dinner at my house or a restaurant, or a movie night at home.
  529. I’m very loyal.
  530. I’m very lucky and very fortunate to have survived and to still be working after 45 years.
  531. I’m very lucky. I do voiceovers, ‘Family Guy,’ on and on, and quite frankly, I’m one of the luckiest actors in the world. I was able to create a character who became iconic.
  532. I’m very much a Christian in ideals and ethics, especially in terms of belief in fairness, a deep set obligation to others, and the virtues of charity, tolerance and generosity that we associate with traditional Christian teaching.
  533. I’m very much a creature of habit.
  534. I’m very much a technical person.
  535. I’m very obsessed with pop culture of the mid-century and it goes hand-in-hand with the music that I studied in school.
  536. I’m very old. I haven’t got time to be charming.
  537. I’m very particular but very thrifty at the same time.
  538. I’m very physical. When I’m writing, I’m playing all the parts; I’m saying the lines out loud, and if I get excited about something – which doesn’t happen very often when I’m writing, but it’s the greatest feeling when it does – I’ll be out of the chair and walking around, and if I’m at home, I’ll find myself two blocks from my house.
  539. I’m very picky; I’m never happy with anything. It’s so hard to give the record away and accept that you’re done.
  540. I’m very protective; it’s in my wiring.
  541. I’m very proud of the Rome episode of ‘No Reservations’ because it violated all the conventional wisdom about making television. You’re never, ever supposed to do a food or travel show in black and white.
  542. I’m very romantic and of course I want to be in love.
  543. I’m very romantic, I’m extremely romantic. I date my wife.
  544. I’m very sane about how crazy I am.
  545. I’m very sassy. I want to show people in my album I’m not like my characters on TV.
  546. I’m very secure about my talents and about who I am.
  547. I’m very sensitive. I remember, as a kid at school, if someone in the classroom was sad or angry, it could have a great impact on me.
  548. I’m very short, so I just have to watch my weight because I have a big appetite.
  549. I’m very shy so I became very outgoing to protect my shyness.
  550. I’m very tech-forward. However, I also think hitting the pause button is not a bad thing, and really connecting with people one-to-one viscerally, having a connection with someone, is really important.
  551. I’m very thankful to directors and filmmakers who consider me in their films, and I hope I’m able to do justice to their films.
  552. I’m very thankful to the Yankees and to Major League Baseball for allowing me to play this game.
  553. I’m very type-A, and many things in my life are about control and domination, but eating should be a submissive experience, where you let down your guard and enjoy the ride.
  554. I’m very, very modest.
  555. I’m very, very serious – I’m serious enough not to take myself too seriously. That means I can be completely wedded to the moment. But when I leave that moment, I want to be completely wedded to the next moment.
  556. I’m vicious. I can be nice off the ice, but on the ice, that’s not where it’s time to make friends.
  557. I’m waiting for them to come up with a ‘Star Trek’ thing so they can beam me from my house to the gigs and back.
  558. I’m wallowing in the whole idea of just being a guy out there with a band, with songs. It’s a real enjoyment.
  559. I’m watching the charts every week and hoping something will pop into my head.
  560. I’m well past the age where I’m acceptable. You get to a certain age and you are forbidden access. You’re not going to get the kind of coverage that you would like in music magazines, you’re not going to get played on radio and you’re not going to get played on television. I have to survive on word of mouth.
  561. I’m who I am. I’m confident. I think it’s weird if you’re not confident.
  562. I’m willing to be different than other parents and go against the mainstream.
  563. I’m wondering whether to have someone go around with my mobile to completely throw everybody off the scent. I could appear in weird places.
  564. I’m working at trying to be a Christian, and that’s serious business. It’s like trying to be a good Jew, a good Muslim, a good Buddhist, a good Shintoist, a good Zoroastrian, a good friend, a good lover, a good mother, a good buddy – it’s serious business.
  565. I’m working on my life story. I’m not decided if it’s going to be a musical or a movie with music in it.
  566. I’m worried about economic growth in the United States. And the creation of jobs, output, and employment. And if you tax people who work, you’re going to get less people working. And what the carbon tax would do is remove the tax from people who work and put it on a product in the ground.
  567. I’m worth far too much money. I don’t need anybody’s money.
  568. Image _____ can be sacrificed to reduce the file size, and chances are the user will still like the resulting image.
  569. Image information such as location and camera description can often be deleted to reduce image sizes. This type of information is called:
  570. Imaginary friends are one of the weirder forms of pretend play in childhood. But the research shows that imaginary friends actually help children understand the other people around them and imagine all the many ways that people could be.
  571. Imaginary time is a new dimension, at right angles to ordinary, real time.
  572. Imagination decides everything.
  573. Imagination disposes of everything; it creates beauty, justice, and happiness, which are everything in this world.
  574. Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.
  575. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
  576. Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
  577. Imagination is the Discovering Faculty, pre-eminently. It is that which penetrates into the unseen worlds around us, the worlds of Science.
  578. Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is.
  579. Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere.
  580. Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.
  581. Imagine for yourself a character, a model personality, whose example you determine to follow, in private as well as in public.
  582. Imagine if baseball were taught the way science is taught in most inner-city schools. Schoolchildren would get lectures about the history of the World Series. High school students would occasionally reproduce famous plays of the past. Nobody would get in the game themselves until graduate school.
  583. Imagine you work at a B2C company. You’re trying to get a jump start on your company’s social media marketing: should you start a LinkedIn Page?
  584. Imagine your family finally making it from nothing to something, and finally getting things going, and finally buying a beautiful house and taking care of your children – and the next day, it’s completely all gone. Zero. Boom. Flat broke. So that’s when I had to man up.
  585. Imitation is the sincerest flattery.
  586. Immense power is acquired by assuring yourself in your secret reveries that you were born to control affairs.
  587. Immigrants aren’t the reason wages haven’t gone up enough; those decisions are made in the boardrooms that too often put quarterly earnings over long-term returns.
  588. Immigrants play a huge role in the founding and value creation of today’s tech companies. We wonder how much more value could be created if it were easier to get a work visa.
  589. Immortality: A toy which people cry for, And on their knees apply for, Dispute, contend and lie for, And if allowed Would be right proud Eternally to die for.
  590. Immortality is a long shot, I admit. But somebody has to be first.
  591. Impart as much as you can of your spiritual being to those who are on the road with you, and accept as something precious what comes back to you from them.
  592. Impartial – unable to perceive any promise of personal advantage from espousing either side of a controversy.
  593. Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
  594. Impiety. Your irreverence toward my deity.
  595. Important principles may, and must, be inflexible.
  596. Improvement begins with I.
  597. Improvisation is almost like the retarded cousin in the comedy world. We’ve been trying forever to get improvisation on TV. It’s just like stand-up. It’s best when it’s just left alone. It doesn’t translate always on TV. It’s best live.
  598. Impudence is the worst of all human diseases.
  599. In 1940, then-Senator Harry Truman headed up a Senate Special Committee to Investigate the National Defense Program. In the course of World War II, more than $15 billion in unnecessary and fraudulent defense spending was identified.
  600. In 1962 I was named Minor League Player of the Year. It was my second season in the bigs.
  601. In 1977, I wrote a series of poems about a character, Black Bart, a former cattle rustler-turned-alchemist. A good friend, Claude Purdy, who is a stage director, suggested I turn the poems into a play.
  602. In 1979, I moved to England and photographed Joy Division and Bowie and Beefheart. At that time I got images that I felt had that special, well – power is a big word to say – more like intimacy and ambition that outlasted the photo shoot. I felt that they would have a longer life.
  603. In 1980 I sent a play, ‘Jitney,’ to the Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis, won a Jerome Fellowship, and found myself sitting in a room with sixteen playwrights. I remember looking around and thinking that since I was sitting there, I must be a playwright, too.
  604. In 1984, I starred in ‘Greystoke: The Legend Of Tarzan,’ my first movie. My lines ended up being dubbed by Glenn Close, supposedly because my accent was ‘too southern’. It was completely humiliating at the time. I became a laughing stock. I’m amazed that I managed to pick myself up and dust myself off.
  605. In 1985 as a teenager in Kenya, I was an adamant member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
  606. In 1994, Estonia became the first European country to adopt a flat tax, and its 26 percent flat tax dramatically energized what had been a faltering economy. Before adopting the flat tax, the Estonian economy was literally shrinking. In the eight years after 1994, Estonia experienced real economic growth – averaging 5.2 percent per year.
  607. In 1995, I was thrust into the role of reluctant, flag-waving feminist and emotionally-focused artist/advocate.
  608. In 1996, Republicans used reconciliation to pass major legislation that ended six decades of welfare policy.
  609. In 1999, Hoffmann-LaRoche paid a $500 million criminal fine for leading a worldwide conspiracy to fix prices for certain vitamins.
  610. In 1999, I established my political party.
  611. In 1999, I was in St. Louis with Martin Luther King III as we led protests against the state’s failure to hire minority contractors for highway construction projects. We went at dawn on a summer day with over a thousand people and performed acts of civil disobedience.
  612. In 2001, Republicans used reconciliation to pass President Bush’s $1.35 trillion tax cut that mainly benefited the wealthy.
  613. In 2003, GlaxoSmithKline paid $88 million in civil fines for overcharging Medicaid for its anti-depressant Paxil.
  614. In 2003, I almost died of an intestinal blockage when I was on a mountain in Chile, filming a segment for ‘Scientific American Frontiers.’
  615. In 2004, Warner-Lambert, a division of Pfizer Inc., pled guilty to two felonies and agreed to pay $430 million for fraudulently promoting the drug Neurontin.
  616. In 2005, Republicans passed a 360-page reconciliation bill without a single Democratic vote that provided deep cuts to Medicaid and raised premiums on Medicare beneficiaries.
  617. In 2008, Goldman Sachs only paid 1.1 percent of its income in taxes even though it earned a profit of $2.3 billion and received an almost $800 billion from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury Department.

  628. In a certain sense the Good is comfortless.
  629. In a competitive world, not everybody can follow the pace; you will leave people out. We now accept that we must take care of these people. You cannot let them die in the streets; people will not accept it. And that is right, too.

  634. In a deep metaphysical sense, all that is conditioned is illusory. All phenomena are literally ‘appearances,’ the outer masks in which the One Reality shows itself forth in our changing universe.

  640. In a general sense, I think it’s bad to bring too much money into climbing, since it takes away a little from the beauty of the mountains. But at the same time, I can’t blame the Nepali government – or the Indian, Pakistani or Chinese, depending on where you’re climbing – from wanting to capitalize on foreign climbers.
  641. In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
  642. In a long meter hymn, a singer – they call it ‘lays out a line.’ And then the whole church joins in in repeating that line. And they form a wall of harmony so tight, you can’t wedge a pin between it.

  648. In a person’s career, well, if you’re process-oriented and not totally outcome-oriented, then you’re more likely to be success. I often say ‘pursue excellence, ignore success.’ Success is a by-product of excellence.

  662. In a sense, ‘Schmidt’ is the most Omaha of my films. But have I gotten it right? I’m not sure. Did Fellini get Rome right? Did Ozu get Tokyo right?
  663. In a sense, the music business and I haven’t always been the best of bedfellows. Artists often have to fight their corner. Your music goes through these filters of record labels and media, and you’re hoping you’ll find someone who’ll help you get your work into the world.
  664. In a sense the quest for the emancipation of black people in the U.S. has always been a quest for economic liberation which means to a certain extent that the rise of black middle class would be inevitable.
  665. In a society that tries to standardize thinking, individuality is not highly prized.
  666. In a storm of struggles, I have tried to control the elements, clasp the fist tight so as to protect self and happiness. But stress can be an addiction, and worry can be our lunge for control, and we forget the answer to this moment is always yes because of Christ.
  667. In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri – where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions.
  668. In a time of domestic crisis, men of goodwill and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics.
  669. In a very real sense, I represent pop culture in an iconic way. It’s been very good to me, so anything I can do to help the fans to tumble along – it’s good.
  670. In a very real sense, it will not be one man going to the moon it will be an entire nation. For all of us must work to put him there.
  671. In a way, writing is an incredible act of individualism, producing your language, and yet to use it from the heart of a crowd as opposed to as an individual performance is a conflicting thing. I do stand alone, and yet it’s not about being an individual or being ambitious.
  672. In a world of complex threats, our security and leadership depends on all elements of our power – including strong and principled diplomacy.
  673. In a world where change is inevitable and continuous, the need to achieve that change without violence is essential for survival.
  674. In a world where irony reigns, where you have to separate, protect and laugh at anything that is honest or has an emotional charge, I bet for catharsis. I like to invest emotionally in things.

  675. In action a great heart is the chief qualification. In work, a great head.
  676. In actuality, California could be a wonderful place to live. In fact, if you’re highly educated and ambitious, you can do quite well here while enjoying the sun and the fun.

  685. In all my work, I try to say – ‘You may be given a load of sour lemons, why not try to make a dozen lemon meringue pies?’
  686. In all my work, in the movies I write, the lyrics, the poetry, the prose, the essays, I am saying that we may encounter many defeats – maybe it’s imperative that we encounter the defeats – but we are much stronger than we appear to be and maybe much better than we allow ourselves to be. Human beings are more alike than unalike.
  687. In all of my career, the style is still the same, and that is of a friend, just sitting and talking.
  688. In all of my possessions, in all moments, whether hard or happy, I was accompanied by my dear wife, Lilly, who supported me wholeheartedly.

  694. In almost every job now, people use software and work with information to enable their organisation to operate more effectively.
  695. In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we’re pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker’s praise without anxiety.
  696. In America everybody is of the opinion that he has no social superiors, since all men are equal, but he does not admit that he has no social inferiors, for, from the time of Jefferson onward, the doctrine that all men are equal applies only upwards, not downwards.
  697. In America, everybody thinks they’re an entrepreneur. That’s the problem. It’s not a title that anybody should call oneself.
  698. In America most everybody who’s Italian is half Italian. Except me. I’m all Italian. I’m mostly Sicilian, and I have a little bit of Neapolitan in me. You get your full dose with me.
  699. In America nobody says you have to keep the circumstances somebody else gives you.
  700. In America our public schools are intended to be religiously neutral. Our teachers and schools are neither to endorse nor to inhibit religion. I believe this is a very good thing.

  702. In America the majority raises formidable barriers around the liberty of opinion; within these barriers an author may write what he pleases, but woe to him if he goes beyond them.

  711. In another situation, and in an active station in life, I should have been keenly occupied, and the founding of an order would have never come into my head.
  712. In any democratic, civilized – even non-democratic nations, if you are a nation, it means to say that in our case, if there’s a hurricane in Louisiana, the people of Vermont are there for them. If there’s a tornado in the Midwest, we are there for them. If there’s flooding in the East Coast, the people in California are there for us.
  713. In any investment, you expect to have fun and make money.
  714. In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.

  719. In art as in love, instinct is enough.
  720. In ‘Art as Therapy’, we argue that art is a tool that can variously help to inspire, console, redeem, guide, comfort, expand and reawaken us.
  721. In art, at a certain level, there is no ‘better than.’ It’s just about trying to operate for yourself on the most supreme level, artistically, that you can and hoping that people get it. Trusting that, just because of the way people are built and how interconnected we are, greatness will translate and symmetry will be recognised.
  722. In art, at a certain level, there is no ‘better than.’ It’s just about trying to operate for yourself on the most supreme level, artistically, that you can and hoping that people get it.
  723. In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.

  725. In baseball 30 days is an eternity.
  726. In Berkeley, we built the garden and a kitchen classroom. We’ve been working on it for 12 years. We’ve learned a lot from it. If kids grow it and cook it, they eat it.
  727. In boxing, it is about the obsession of getting the most from yourself: wanting to dominate the world like a hungry young lion.
  728. In Britain, because I live here, I can also run into problems of envy and competition. But all this is just in a day’s work for a writer. You can’t put stuff out there without someone calling you a complete fool. Oh, well.
  729. In Britain, like most of the developed world, stem-cell research is regarded as a great opportunity. America will be left behind if it doesn’t change policy.
  730. In Britain, where the social safety net is more like a social swaddling cloth, crime rates other than murder are significantly higher than in the United States.
  731. In Britain, you never get away from the fact that you’re a foreigner. In the U.S., the view is it doesn’t matter where you come from.
  732. In business or in life, don’t follow the wagon tracks too closely.
  733. In business, the idea of measuring what you are doing, picking the measurements that count like customer satisfaction and performance… you thrive on that.
  734. In California, there are huge problems because of dams. I’m against big dams, per se, because I think that they are economically unfeasible. They’re ecologically unsustainable. And they’re hugely undemocratic.

  736. In ceremonies of the horsemen, even the pawn must hold a grudge.
  737. In ‘Changeling,’ I tried to show something you’d never see nowadays – a kid sitting and looking at the radio. Just sitting in front of the radio and listening. Your mind does the rest.
  738. In Chile, they have no movies. They have awful popular movies.
  739. In China, you’ve got six people buying for one child. But the thing is, you’ve got the largest rising upper-middle class in the world.
  740. In Chinese culture, it wouldn’t occur to kids to question or talk back to their parents. In American culture, kids in books, TV shows and movies constantly score points with their snappy back talk. Typically, it’s the parents who need to be taught a life lesson – by their children.
  741. In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.
  742. In climbing, sponsors typically support an athlete but provide very little direction, giving the climber free rein to follow his or her passion toward whatever is inspiring. It’s a wonderful freedom, in many ways similar to that of an artist who simply lives his life and creates whatever moves him.
  743. In cold weather states like Vermont, where the weather can get to 20 below zero, home heating assistance is critically important. In fact, it is a life and death issue.
  744. In college I never realized the opportunities available to a pro athlete. I’ve been given the chance to meet all kinds of people, to travel and expand my financial capabilities, to get ideas and learn about life, to create a world apart from basketball.
  745. In college, I think I probably positioned myself as an aspiring writer, meaning I dressed sort of extravagantly and adopted all the semi-Byronic affectations, as if I were writing, although I wasn’t actually doing any writing.
  746. In comic strips, the person on the left always speaks first.
  747. In comics the reader is in complete control of the experience. They can read it at their own pace, and if there’s a piece of dialogue that seems to echo something a few pages back, they can flip back and check it out, whereas the audience for a film is being dragged through the experience at the speed of 24 frames per second.
  748. In constructing the plot and working it out with the proper diction, the poet should place the scene, as far as possible, before his eyes. In this way, seeing everything with the utmost vividness, as if he were a spectator of the action, he will discover what is in keeping with it, and be most unlikely to overlook inconsistencies.
  749. In countries around the world, people spend more money on food because they know how precious it is.
  750. In countries where innocent people are dying, the leaders are following their blood rather than their brains.

  752. In Czechoslovakia in 1968, communist reformers appealed to democratic ideals that were deeply rooted in the country’s pre-second world war past.
  753. In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans. But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. We can’t afford it. And I refuse to renew them again.
  754. In defense of our persons and properties under actual violation, we took up arms. When that violence shall be removed, when hostilities shall cease on the part of the aggressors, hostilities shall cease on our part also.
  755. In designing the scenery and costumes for any of Shakespeare’s plays, the first thing the artist has to settle is the best date for the drama. This should be determined by the general spirit of the play more than by any actual historical references which may occur in it.
  756. In digital era, privacy must be a priority. Is it just me, or is secret blanket surveillance obscenely outrageous?

  758. In ‘Divergent,’ the story is about Beatrice Prior, and I play her brother.

  760. In drama you can either pretend everything is OK, or you can show the world as it really is in the hope that it gets better.
  761. In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
  762. In e-commerce, your prices have to be better because the consumer has to take a leap of faith in your product.
  763. In each action we must look beyond the action at our past, present, and future state, and at others whom it affects, and see the relations of all those things. And then we shall be very cautious.
  764. In each restaurant, I develop a different culinary sensibility. In Paris, I’m more classic, because that’s what customers like. In Monaco, it’s classic Mediterranean haute cuisine. In London, it’s a contemporary French restaurant that I’ve developed with a U.K. influence and my French know-how.
  765. In effect, to follow, not to force the public inclination; to give a direction, a form, a technical dress, and a specific sanction, to the general sense of the community, is the true end of legislature.

  770. In England, an inventor is regarded almost as a crazy man, and in too many instances, invention ends in disappointment and poverty. In America, an inventor is honoured, help is forthcoming, and the exercise of ingenuity, the application of science to the work of man, is there the shortest road to wealth.
  771. In England, everyone believes if you think, then you don’t feel. But all my novels are about joining together thinking and feeling.
  772. In England, I’m already labeled a rock photographer, which is a little insulting, because I’m not a rock photographer at all.
  773. In England, it’s a rare thing to see a player smoking but, all in all, I prefer that to an alcoholic. The relationship with alcohol is a real problem in English football and, in the short term, it’s much more harmful to a sportsman. It weakens the body, which becomes more susceptible to injury.
  774. In England or America, actors do not have to cater to an image. In India, it is almost demanded of us. Very seldom do you get a film where you can walk away from your image.
  775. In England the judges should have independence to protect the people against the crown. Here the judges should not be independent of the people, but be appointed for not more than seven years. The people would always re-elect the good judges.
  776. In essence, I set myself the objective of doing what I feel is right without having any ambition.
  777. In Europe it is particularly important that we build good relations to everyone who holds political responsibility because Europe can only be build together.

  780. In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future.
  781. In every conversation I’ve had – with housewives in Mumbai, with middle-class people, upper-class, in the slums – everyone says there is an underlying consciousness of karma.

  789. In every tyrant’s heart there springs in the end this poison, that he cannot trust a friend.
  790. In every union roles are assumed, some traditional, some not. My husband used to pay his own bills, I used to call my own repairman. But as marriages progress, you surrender areas of your own competence, often without even knowing it.
  791. In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
  792. In everything one thing is impossible: rationality.
  793. In Evita I wasn’t really hugely involved with it. I gave a little bit of help but they needed a bit of technical help on the movie and so some of my music people went in at the end of the movie and helped out with it.
  794. In fact, my popularity seems almost entirely a masculine phenomenon.
  795. In fact Sarah Palin has created more jobs than Obama has. She created eleven jobs fact-checking at the AP just for the Palin autobiography.
  796. In fact, the best thing we could do on taxes for all Americans is to simplify the individual tax code. This will be a tough job, but members of both parties have expressed an interest in doing this, and I am prepared to join them.
  797. In fact, the converse is true: At a time when the United States has been called on for a level of moral leadership, vision and inspiration not seen since World War II, we cannot afford to dissemble about crimes against humanity.
  798. In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.
  799. In families you can find the source of every human drama. It is interesting because the cell of a society, the cell of a country, the cell of humanity – everything lies in the family.
  800. In fashion, the time is so short, and even with pre-collection, there are not only dresses, shoes, bags, and furs but now raincoats and T-shirts. It’s just an endless amount of work that we have to produce in no time.
  801. In feature films the director is God; in documentary films God is the director.
  802. In Ferguson, there are witnesses who say Brown had his hands up when he was shot. That should be enough probable cause to go to trial to then determine if Officer Wilson is guilty or not. It is at trial that he can then defend himself and his attorneys can present their own witnesses and their own defense.
  803. In fifth grade, I did ‘Oklahoma!,’ but I didn’t get a leading role. I knew the whole play and could sing it already, but they were like, ‘The sixth-grader has to get the lead.’ I was really discouraged.
  804. In film, you are a totally different person than in the video.
  805. In films murders are always very clean. I show how difficult it is and what a messy thing it is to kill a man.
  806. In Finland, where 80 percent of workers belong to unions, all employees enjoy at least 30 days paid vacation, and the gap between the rich and poor is far more equitable than in the United States.
  807. In five years’ time I’d like to be a mum. I want to settle down and have a family, definitely sooner rather than later. I’d like to have finished my second album too, maybe even my third. I’d like a sound that sticks around that other people are inspired by and that people know is me.
  808. In formal logic, a contradiction is the signal of defeat, but in the evolution of real knowledge it marks the first step in progress toward a victory.

  815. In general, I usually don’t really go by or live my life by a clock, and outside of touring, I don’t really ask anyone else to. It’s not out of lack of respect for anyone or intentional.

  821. In George Bush you get experience, and with me you get – The Future!
  822. In Ghazalia, Mr. Hussein showed his contempt for the majority Shiites in ways large and small. He refused to allow them even one mosque, while the Sunnis had nearly a dozen. To worship, the Shiites had to cross an inconveniently located bridge over the sewage canal to Shula.

  836. In high school, I had a gold 1992 Ford Explorer. It was a gift. I used to have a terrible habit of locking the keys in the car when I used leave the car running to help it start on a cold morning. I think the local locksmith became used to me calling him.
  837. In high school I wanted to be a rock star and was in a lot of bands.
  838. In high school, I was so painfully self-aware that how I thought of myself was probably very different from what other people thought of me. I thought of myself as just painfully awkward and dorky. I had a lot of hair and was kind of weird. I sang a lot in the hallways.

  849. In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood.

  868. In large states public education will always be mediocre, for the same reason that in large kitchens the cooking is usually bad.
  869. In late elementary school, early high school, I started losing my hair in chunks in the shower. It was one of the scariest things. It got to the point where it was visibly gone.

  873. In life there is nothing more unexpected and surprising than the arrivals and departures of pleasure. If we find it in one place today, it is vain to seek it there tomorrow. You can not lay a trap for it.

  884. In many of the things that people do, they themselves are the centre of attention, but they inscribe some other name on their banner.

  886. In many ways, education is a lousy business. Teachers are not normal economic actors; almost all of them work for less money than they might fetch in some other industry, given their skills and advanced degrees.
  887. In many ways, I’ve been writing personal stories all my life.
  888. In many ways, my entire graphic novel career was a long diversion. Originally, all I wanted to do was to be an underground cartoonist and maybe bring out a groovy underground mag.

  898. ‘In Memoriam’ has been my companion for all my grownup life.
  899. In Mexico, when we want to speak deep secrets, we drink pulgue together. It is a drink made from the cactus plant, and when you take the bottle from your mouth, it leaves a string behind, between the mouth and the bottle, like a spider’s web. It shows that the truth sticks inside.

  909. In most cases, my visits to the West are for promotion of human values and religious harmony.

  912. In most instances, all an argument proves is that two people are present.
  913. In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design.
  914. In most places and times in human history, babies have had not just one person but lots of people around who were really paying attention to them around, dedicated to them, cared to them, were related to them.

  919. In music the passions enjoy themselves.
  920. In music, which was my world before, you’ve got thousands and thousands of years of great ideas that have already been thought of. But the internet is basically 20 years old. So you can be way stupider and still have world-changing ideas.

  924. In my career as a director, there’s always been some point where you get halfway through it, or three-quarters, and you go: ‘What is this thing all about, and why am I telling the story? Does anybody really care about seeing this?’ At that time you have to say: ‘OK, forget that and just go ahead.’
  925. In my case, of course, people had a lot of expectations, but that didn’t pressurise me because I’m pretty confident about my musicality and my talent.

  932. In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield.
  933. In my dreams, whatever I am doing, I look down to see if I have prosthetics. It sets my time frame in my dream, I think. I’d have these dreams that I am running and launching myself, and I look down and see that I have prosthetics. I have a lot of those, where I do great, amazing things with my prosthetics.
  934. In my early 20s I was so miserable doing construction, I wanted something that paid money. I liked nice stuff. I liked cars and architecture, and things that cost money.

  935. In my father’s generation, the product was 80 percent of what you were putting into the world, and your personal life was 20 percent. It now seems that 80 percent of the product I put out is silly, made-up stories and what I’m wearing.

  942. In my life and my work, I really try to be just fully myself.
  943. In my mind’s eye, I visualize how a particular… sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice.
  944. In my mind’s eye, Shakespeare is a huge, hot sea-beast, with fire in his veins and ice on his claws and inscrutable eyes, who looks like an inchoate hump under the encrustations of live barnacle-commentaries, limpets and trailing weeds.
  945. In my neighborhood, everyone had an opinion on the local cantor. You didn’t go to a synagogue to listen to the rabbi’s sermon. You went to listen to the cantor. It was like a concert.

  947. In my opinion, I think sarcasm and humor in a song, without turning it into a novelty song, is really charming.
  948. In my opinion, there is no aspect of reality beyond the reach of the human mind.
  949. In my own life, I think legends of supernatural, mythic things are really just a manifestation of the collective unconscious. So I don’t really get freaked out. I mean certainly, you read about things people did to each other in the pursuit of some mystical or occult goal, and it’s horrifying. But that’s just human nature.
  950. In my own work, I tend to cover a lot of time and to jump back and forward in time, and sometimes the way I do this is not very straightforward.

  954. In my research, I’ve interviewed a lot of people who never fit in, who are what you might call ‘different’: scientists, artists, thinkers. And if you drop down deep into their work and who they are, there is a tremendous amount of self-acceptance.
  955. In my school, the brightest boys did math and physics, the less bright did physics and chemistry, and the least bright did biology. I wanted to do math and physics, but my father made me do chemistry because he thought there would be no jobs for mathematicians.

  957. In my tradition, one must wait until one has learned a lot of Bible and Talmud and the Prophets to handle mysticism. This isn’t instant coffee. There is no instant mysticism.
  958. In my travels, which have been wider than ever man yet accomplished, I have seen many, many wild beasts of Arabia and India; but this beast, that is commonly called a Tyrant, I know not how many heads it has, nor if it be crooked of claw, and armed with horrible fangs.
  959. In my videos, I always want to be a powerful woman. That’s my mission.

  961. In my view of the present aspect of affairs, there is no need of bloodshed and war. There is no necessity for it. I am not in favor of such a course, and I may say in advance, there will be no blood shed unless it be forced upon the government. The government will not use force unless force is used against it.
  962. In my view, the best gift is one that benefits both the receiver and the planet.
  963. In my work and in myself I reflect black people, women and men, as I reflect others. One day even the most self-protective ones will look into the mirror I provide and not be afraid.

  968. In my youth, I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.
  969. In nature, nothing is perfect and everything is perfect. Trees can be contorted, bent in weird ways, and they’re still beautiful.
  970. In nature there are few sharp lines.
  971. In New Orleans, music is part of the culture. You’re raised with it, from the cradle to the grave, and all in-between.
  972. In New York, you are competing with Times Square lights and all of that, so you’ve got to be 300 pounds and crazy to get anyone’s attention. Then, you can refine yourself. I always knew under those 300 pounds and tracksuits was a refined, slim, dignified man.
  973. In ninth grade, I came up with a new form of rebellion. I hadn’t been getting good grades, but I decided to get all A’s without taking a book home. I didn’t go to math class, because I knew enough and had read ahead, and I placed within the top 10 people in the nation on an aptitude exam.
  974. In no other country in the world is the love of property keener or more alert than in the United States, and nowhere else does the majority display less inclination toward doctrines which in any way threaten the way property is owned.
  975. In novels in general – and also on the television – we do live in a world where bodies is what we are. We do not talk about the spirit or the soul, and there is a sense that we no longer talk about beliefs, either Freudian or Marxist.
  976. In Obama’s case, we’ve enabled affirmative action to find a home in the nation’s highest office. There you have it. I said it and I stand by it. America fell for the gimmick candidate, disregarding every fact and warning sign in the rush to have ‘the first African-American president.’
  977. In one case out of a hundred a point is excessively discussed because it is obscure; in the ninety-nine remaining it is obscure because it is excessively discussed.
  978. In one day, I have times where I’m feeling great, I feel like I love my life, and then 2:30 rolls around and I’m the angriest man alive. My wife sees it.
  979. In one ear, out the other.
  980. In one respect, it’s easier to open a restaurant in New York because you get more media attention than anywhere else. Almost everyone will try a new place once, irrespective of the reviews, because it’s a spectator sport.

  1000. In order to encourage the cattle farmers to raise a herd of all-natural cattle, which is a several-year process, they have to know that it’s not just Shake Shack that wants to buy it. They have to have other buyers who are willing to pay more for all natural.
