  1. I can’t put on a facade every time I go out.
  2. I can’t read the newspaper without crying. I’m easily affected by horrible events, you see.
  3. I can’t really decide for other people what to think.
  4. I can’t really define it in sexual terms alone although our sexuality is so energizing why not enjoy it too?
  5. I can’t really even name a person I like in hip-hop music.
  6. I can’t really say I miss my toes.
  7. I can’t really work on more than one thing at a time.
  8. I can’t remember my dreams more than a couple of seconds after I wake up. It’s frustrating because sometimes I dream that I’m watching a really good movie.
  9. I can’t remember when I wasn’t running around doing some sort of a sporting activity.
  10. I can’t say I follow politics extremely closely, but I’m definitely aware of what’s going on in the world.
  11. I can’t say that my disability has helped my work, but it has allowed me to concentrate on research without having to lecture or sit on boring committees.
  12. I can’t say that there’s been some big change during my career where all of a sudden everything’s totally colorblind.
  13. I can’t see as well as I used to. Which is actually convenient because everything I see is in extremely soft focus! I think that’s God’s little gift to me.
  14. I can’t see myself singing the same song twice in a row. That’s terrible.
  15. I can’t speak for other people, but for me, I feel like gone are the days that you need to come out of a closet. I never felt like I was in a closet. I never did. I always felt comfortable with who I am and the decisions I made.
  16. I can’t speak for the future. I have no crystal ball.
  17. I can’t stand directors who try to micro-manage everything. When it happens these days I just walk off set, saying if they don’t like the way I’m doing it they can get someone else.
  18. I can’t stand to see myself on television.
  19. I can’t stay friends with anyone who doesn’t have a passion for something; and, generally speaking, artistic people, creative people carry it right into the kitchen, too. They have a zest for life; the excitement of living. All of the great eaters I’ve known are also men of great wit.
  20. I can’t stress to you enough how much I can relate to teens being cyberbullied. Something that helps me is looking at old videos of me and my friends from middle school, or videos of my family. I love watching funny videos of my favorite people – it really cheers me up.
  21. I can’t take it back. I can’t take anything back. So I don’t regret it.
  22. I can’t talk about anything or write about anything if I don’t understand it. So a lot of the stuff that I go through and a lot of the time that I spend is understanding.
  23. I can’t tell a joke to save my soul. It’s just not my thing, though I love to listen to jokes.
  24. I can’t tell anybody else how to run their life or their business, but I really believe I’ve got a good bead on myself.
  25. I can’t tell if I want to be a rapper who’s funny because I kind of enjoy just doing really stupid songs about nothing. But I want to have a career that’s long-lasting, and I don’t think people want to listen to a straight-up comedy rapper all the time.
  26. I can’t tell you where a poem comes from, what it is, or what it is for: nor can any other man. The reason I can’t tell you is that the purpose of a poem is to go past telling, to be recognised by burning.
  27. I can’t think of a greater privilege than to speak out with legislation for people that can’t often speak for themselves. And I know the ABLE Act will bring justice and peace of mind to millions of American families who deal with disabilities every day.
  28. I can’t think of anything you might say about Irish people that is absolutely true.
  29. I can’t understand the conditions of a corporate product being designed and getting millions. I admire it, it’s great, but I don’t know how to do that. I have to have the wheel.
  30. I can’t understand the conditions of a corporate product being designed and getting millions. I admire it, it’s great, but I don’t know how to do that.
  31. I can’t understand why the front pages of newspapers can cover bird flu and swine flu and everybody is up in arms about that and we still haven’t really woken up to the fact that so many women in sub-Saharan Africa – 60 percent of people in – infected with HIV are women.
  32. I can’t usually stomach a project after I finish it, but for those days and weeks and months that it’s new to me, I do listen to it, and it might change over time, but it’s about function.
  33. I can’t watch scary movies right now, because living on my own, it kind of freaks me out.
  34. I can’t work completely out of my imagination. I must put my foot in a bit of truth; and then I can fly free.
  35. I can’t write another breakup record. That would be a real cliche.
  36. I care not much for a man’s religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.
  37. I care not what others think of what I do, but I care very much about what I think of what I do! That is character!
  38. I carry a small sheet of paper in my wallet that has written on it the names of people whose opinions of me matter. To be on that list, you have to love me for my strengths and struggles.
  39. I carry my iPad and laptop with me everywhere.
  40. I carry the flag of Ireland all the time. I want to represent my country.
  41. I cast unusual people in my movies.
  42. I certainly believe that what we perceive as humans is just the tip of the iceberg. I don’t necessarily believe in vampires or werewolves or that kind of thing, but I believe there is definitely a realm we don’t necessarily have access to.
  43. I certainly can’t complain. I work six days a week, if not seven, and eighteen hours out of twenty-four – fortunately, with a great deal of pleasure. Why? Because I only do something if I want to do it; I need to feel a desire, to find pleasure in moving forward, creating, moving, inventing.
  44. I certainly did not know what the word ‘socialism’ meant growing up, because I was brought up in a very nonpolitical family. My brother was somewhat active, but my parents were not.
  45. I certainly don’t feel like I have the perfect body type… It’s through your own eyes. And for every female, you’re going to see flaws in that; you’re going to see flaws regardless. So for me, it’s just important to have that confidence and self-esteem no matter what body type you have.
  46. I certainly don’t think I’m deserving of taking up space forever as a human. There’s a whole generation of people yet to be born that are going to be so much more evolved than I am. I don’t want to take up space. They’re going to be better equipped to make the world a better place than I am.
  47. I certainly don’t think it’s inevitable that we don’t love children who don’t carry our own DNA. If that were true we wouldn’t have millions of successful adoptions to consider. I do think that it’s harder to love a child when you come into that child’s life after the unrequited passion of infancy and early childhood has passed.
  48. I certainly enjoy Usher, Beyonce, Chris Brown, and there is Fantasia; these people will be around a while. They’ve got it. They’ve got the ‘it’ factor.
  49. I certainly feel fortunate in my career to have been able to continue to work in different mediums. I don’t ever want to be the guy who gets really good at one thing and just does that over and over and over again.
  50. I certainly know that I would not be able to survive if it were not for the fact that I am being upheld by the prayers of so many people.
  51. I certainly want people to like my writing, but I know that if I write with the intention of trying to please people, the writing will not be good because it will not be authentic. So, ironically, I have to be willing to write something strange or unlovable in order to write anything truly good.
  52. I certainly would not like to end up in a tie-up with Ms. Rousey.
  53. I change during the course of a day. I wake and I’m one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I’m somebody else.
  54. I change my mind a lot. I usually don’t agree with what I say very much. I’m an awful liar.
  55. I change the language with which I use my voice. In opera, I know I have an orchestra behind me; I have to communicate to people very far from me.
  56. I changed my name when we became aware of the African revolution and the whole question of our African roots.
  57. I charge my wealthy clients a lot and put 10 per cent in a fund which I use to pay the expenses of my poorer clients. When the government gangs up on the poor schnook in the street, someone has to stand up for him.
  58. I choose a block of marble and chop off whatever I don’t need.
  59. I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their intellects. A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
  60. I choose to do unattractive people, because then I can pretend they think they’re attractive.
  61. I chose a time in the century which had the greatest moments for novels – the late ’30s and World War II.
  62. I chose to deal with the underdogs on ‘1 Train.’ I could’ve got the biggest superstars in the rap game, but why do that when you can let the young boys shine?
  63. I chose to pursue a career in physics because there the truth isn’t so easily bent.
  64. I claim Dickens as a mentor. He’s my teacher. He’s one of my driving forces.
  65. I claim that human mind or human society is not divided into watertight compartments called social, political and religious. All act and react upon one another.
  66. I claim the right to take a stand once in a while.
  67. I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.
  68. I clipped a Ferrari, hit the gravel trap at a fair old speed, which lifted the car up into the barrier, and then rolled a few times. I had no injuries or anything – I just had to wait for the marshals to right the car before I could get out.
  69. I collect old portraits. They’re all just interesting pictures of people, and you just kind of wonder who they were and what they were. There’s a guy – I don’t know who he is, but he’s wearing a suit. He’s got his arms folded, and he looks like he sold insurance or something. I’m just wondering why someone painted him.
  70. I collect travel alarm clocks. I was in a flea market in France once, in 1994, and I opened up this beautiful Jaeger-LeCoultre folding eight-day winding clock folded into a beautiful case, and I went, ‘Wow, man.’ And I’ve been collecting travel alarm clocks since 1994.
  71. I come armed with a really good ignorance. I don’t strive toward ignorance. I come by it naturally.
  72. I come from a country in which I experienced economic collapse.
  73. I come from a different era and I design clothes for our era. I think of people I want to dress when I design.
  74. I come from a family of 12, so I kind of got a little lost as a child.
  75. I come from a family of storytellers. Growing up, my father would make up these stories about how he and my mother met and fell in love, and my mother would tell me these elaborately visual stories of growing up as a kid in New York, and I was always so enrapt.
  76. I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage.
  77. I come from a musical family as well as a culinary family.
  78. I come from a protected environment of a Juhu house, and I wasn’t exposed to life as shown in ‘Highway’. It’s not that I’m a snob, but I was cocooned from the reality of life. The film made me aware of life and myself.
  79. I come from a rural state. People drive 50, 100 miles to and from work every single day. That is true all over America.
  80. I come from a world where the word ‘trauma’ doesn’t exist, because we are too poor. I didn’t have an easy life compared to the average European. But compared to the average African, it wasn’t all that bad.
  81. I come from a world where you get the film done, that’s a success.
  82. I come from Detroit where it’s rough and I’m not a smooth talker.
  83. I come from – I came from Wales, and it’s a strong, butch society. We were in the war and all that. People didn’t waste time feeling sorry for themselves. You had to get on with it. So my credo is get on with it. I don’t waste time being soft. I’m not cold, but I don’t like being, wasting my time with – life’s too short.
  84. I come from musical theater, and a lot of musical theater is about accepting fantasy. I think it is more about just being open and accepting.
  85. I come from Texas, and my grandmother and mother were born in Arkansas.
  86. I come from the place where I am thinking ‘I have put my blood on the pages.’
  87. I come more to Scotland than I ever used to, so I feel more connected to it, more part of the zeitgeist. You know when you realize you have a choice and I’m choosing my homeland. It’s funny: when you get older these things creep up to you.
  88. I come to Comic-Con in San Diego because this is where those fans are – those to whom I owe the longevity of my career.
  89. I compete against myself in competitions anyway, so I train against myself in practice.
  90. I completely take on the risk, the poker game, which being an artist means, and I’m going to try to make a film which honestly reflects what I have in my head.
  91. I compose music for films, and by the grace of God, I’ve got a few awards. That’s it.
  92. I conceive that the great part of the miseries of mankind are brought upon them by false estimates they have made of the value of things.
  93. I concentrate in my work on preserving and displaying the original flavor from each ingredient in a dish.
  94. I confront the European elite’s self-image as tolerant ‘while under their noses women are living like slaves.
  95. I consciously try to end my novels at a point where I won’t have to wonder about my characters ever again.
  96. I consider each performance to be an intimate conversation between me and the audience members.
  97. I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.
  98. I consider myself a moderate Republican. I have very, very moderate social views, and I’m pretty strong on, on defense matters.
  99. I consider myself a perpetual student. You seek and learn every day: from an experiment in the lab, from reading a scientific journal, from taking care of a patient. Because of this, I rarely get bored.
  100. I consider myself a poet first and a musician second. I live like a poet and I’ll die like a poet.
  101. I consider myself a pretty good conversationalist, but you wind up being downgraded to idiot status when you don’t speak the language!
  102. I consider myself absolutely a character actor, and that’s what I want as a career. I don’t need to be the lead star or any of that, as long as I’m doing stuff that I’m proud of, really.
  103. I consider myself an inventor first and an entrepreneur second. In real life, my hero is Thomas Edison. He was a great inventor, but also an outstanding entrepreneur who was able to sell his inventions to the masses. He didn’t just develop the light bulb; he invented the entire electric grid and power distribution system.
  104. I consider myself as a free spokesman for the people.
  105. I consider plot a necessary intrusion on what I really want to do, which is write snappy dialogue.
  106. I consider that 9/11 was the day when war was started against my own work and against myself. Even though we are not sure of the links, Iraq was one of the countries that did not lower its flags in mourning on 9/11.
  107. I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose.
  108. I consider the fact that thousands of children die each day from starvation and a lack of medicine a crisis for humanity and a problem we must collectively attempt to solve.
  109. I consider the voice a gift from the heavens, and as all the gifts from the heavens, they must be used, but the minute that the heavens call it back then of course I will stop.
  110. I considered obesity a disease. It can destroy you from within. It almost destroyed me, and I do not want that to happen to anybody.
  111. I continue to care for President Obama and for his family. I think that in many ways they are very courageous people, and I honor that, because I know what it means to live as a black person in a racist America.
  112. I continuously go further and further learning about my own limitations, my body limitation, psychological limitations. It’s a way of life for me.
  113. I cook a little bit. I make a Hungarian dish called chicken paprikash that’s out of this world. I’ll give a heads-up to all of your readers that it doesn’t have to be between Thai and Mexican every night. Toss some Hungarian in every once in a while. You will not be sorry. Good, solid peasant food.
  114. I cook a little – I’ve never taken classes or anything – but enough to get by.
  115. I could always score goals. I loved that feeling of having your team look to you, that feeling of leadership.
  116. I could, as a free man, look across the bay toward the Eastern Shore where I was born a slave.
  117. I could be 100 years old and in my rocker, but I’ll still be very proud that I was part of the ‘Harry Potter’ films.
  118. I could be a model for one night. But I’m also a professional soccer player, and I like to be taken seriously on the field.
  119. I could be anywhere in the country, and people will ask, ‘Are you from Jersey?’ I’m proud of that. We’re a weird breed.
  120. I could beat my mike stand into the stage, but I was still in pain. Maybe fans liked it, but sometimes people forget you’re a person and they’re more into the entertainment value. It’s taken a long time to turn that around and give a strong show without it being a kamikaze show.
  121. I could definitely see myself making a serious movie or a drama in the future.
  122. I could do nothing but Brooklyn shows for the rest of my career, and I could die ignorant.
  123. I could do one show after another in China for the rest of my life and still die ignorant. There’s a lot of places left to go.
  124. I could fall in love with a sumo wrestler if he told stories and made me laugh. Obviously, it would be easier if someone was African-American and lived next door and went to the same church. Because then I wouldn’t have to translate.
  125. I could get away with not taking care of myself as a bachelorette but as a mom I can’t.
  126. I could have easily been a statistic. Growing up in Brooklyn, N.Y., it was easy – a little too easy – to get into trouble. Surrounded by poor schools, lack of resources, high unemployment rates, poverty, gangs and more, I watched as many of my peers fell victim to a vicious cycle of diminished opportunities and imprisonment.
  127. I could have lived anywhere in the world now if I wanted to.
  128. I could imagine at a certain age, when I have no vocal cords left, that I would find a young man who could sing my parts for me. But I don’t see why I would stop.
  129. I could listen to the radio and I had access to books from time to time. Not all the time.
  130. I could never be a distance runner, because I can’t run for more than ten minutes. There aren’t enough iPod gigabytes in the world to make that worth it for me.
  131. I could never be the kind of writer who went to the set of the movie and fussed and fretted about, ‘Oh, that dialogue’s wrong,’ or ‘That character doesn’t look like that.’ That would be insufferable.
  132. I could never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me.
  133. I could never be with a woman who felt like she needs to change me.
  134. I could never change the overall feel of my music. That’s why people like me – I don’t follow trends, and I don’t follow crowds.
  135. I could never focus on my upper body as a skater, so I’m enjoying having symmetrical upper and lower body muscle.
  136. I could never have imagined that firing 67 people on national television would actually make me more popular, especially with the younger generation.
  137. I could never really imagine myself doing one thing, and I’m pretty sure that I’ll end up doing four or five different things. I want to be a Renaissance woman. I want to paint, and I want to write, and I want to act, and I want to just do everything.
  138. I could never understand why other kids wanted to truant – my education here gave me everything. It’s the place where I really got to flourish.
  139. I could not do what I do, and teach a class, and never miss a deadline, never be late for anything if I was a lush, OK? I would really love to read a piece that said, ‘He is not a lush.’ That would be fabulous, it would be a first, I could show it to people and say, ‘Look!’
  140. I could not spend the rest of my life sitting in Brazil writing down who called whom uncle and aunt.
  141. I could take all the cartoons in the tabloid newspapers, but I couldn’t take my daughter punching me in the belly and asking why I was so fat. That was my inspiration to lose the weight. And probably the last time anyone hurt my feelings.
  142. I could write six songs in one day with everything that’s going on.
  143. I couldn’t be touring unless my husband was on the road with me, taking care of our son while I’m onstage and doing interviews.
  144. I couldn’t be with someone who is depressed all the time.
  145. I couldn’t have accomplished the things in my career if I didn’t practice, and the worst part about that whole thing is when a kid comes up to me and says ‘Allen, I don’t like practice, either.’ I’ve got to straighten that kid right then.
  146. I couldn’t have written things like ‘Low’ and ‘Heroes,’ those particular albums, if it hadn’t have been for Berlin and the kind of atmosphere I felt there.
  147. I couldn’t help but be impressed by the magnitude of the earthquake.
  148. I couldn’t imagine what it’s like to be a journalist talking about music. You’re left with empty descriptions; you probably have to make up a sort of weird cocktail of band influences and references to other music to get your point across.
  149. I couldn’t say I ever dreamt of becoming a composer, a pianist, or anything else for that matter. I have the kind of brain where nothing is set in stone.
  150. I couldn’t sell air conditioners on a 98-degree day. When I demonstrated them in a showroom, I pushed the wrong button and blew the circuit.
  151. I couldn’t sit in a chair in an office all day.
  152. I couldn’t think of anything less appealing than molding the minds of tomorrow’s leaders.
  153. I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
  154. I counted on sixty days only, but I held out for 133. I didn’t go into power, but to get power I borrowed some power from the President and made him sign a number of decrees and give me enough power to create a system capable of handling crisis situations.
  155. I create art. It’s kinda abstract.
  156. I create little challenges for myself, like, ‘Okay, whatever you do in this song, you’ve got to somehow work in Greek Cypriots,’ or something like that.
  157. I created myself. I have taught myself so much.
  158. I created Punk for this day and age. Do you see Britney walking around wearing ties and singing punk? Hell no. That’s what I do. I’m like a Sid Vicious for a new generation.
  159. I crushed high school. I was a huge dork.
  160. I cry a lot, you know. Which is very difficult for a man to recognise, but I do. I cry in movies, you know, just watching movies.
  161. I cry so much less than I used to. I used to be one of the most teary people.
  162. I cry when I don’t get food on time. I am not cranky but have the heart of a child. I cry and laugh at most times. I have the sensitivity of a child.
  163. I cry whenever I watch an emotional scene that I did, just because it brings me back to that moment. It’s like, I remember being there; I remember feeling what I felt. It’s really weird, right?
  164. I damaged my health during ‘Les Mis,’ which I didn’t want to mention in case it seemed like I was courting sympathy.
  165. I dance a lot and I run and do yoga and play field hockey and tennis. I like to be active. I don’t always have time for that stuff, but I do always feel better afterward.
  166. I danced for a while, and I knew I could sing, so I just began singing in a praise band at church and doing musical theater and jazz vocal performance in school. One didn’t really lead to another; I was just always interested in the performance arts.
  167. I dated my first girlfriend for, like, two weeks in high school, and when you’re in high school, it’s so much different. I wanted to hang out with my friends and play video games and play paintball and do guy stuff. Girls were never around for my friends group.
  168. I deal with foreign countries. I made a lot of money dealing against China. I’ve made a lot of money dealing against many other countries.
  169. I deal with gay and black conservatives who don’t want to be called Uncle Toms of their politically correct Marxist multi-cultural unit structure. And they come to me saying, ‘What can I do?’ And I say, ‘Lay low.’
  170. I decided to devote my life to telling the story because I felt that having survived I owe something to the dead. and anyone who does not remember betrays them again.
  171. I decided to go and find India on my own. So, I hired a cab for a drive round old Delhi. I was knocked off center by the sheer energy that goes into daily survival.
  172. I decided to see how my voice sounds on different type of records. So I did Eminem and the Biggie, Florence and the Machine, and Muse covers. A couple of them just came from some jam sessions between me and my sister in her bedroom at my father’s house in San Diego.
  173. I decided to teach because I think that any person who studies philosophy has to be involved actively.
  174. I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.
  175. I decorated my house like a medieval gothic castle, European-style. Chandeliers and red velvet curtains. My bedroom is pink and black, my bathroom is totally Hello Kitty, I have a massive pink couch and a big antique gold cross.
  176. I deeply regret any harm, or any perceived harm, that I may have done to anyone by any behaviour of mine.
  177. I define myself from a vision, from a point of view of life.
  178. I define nothing. Not beauty, not patriotism. I take each thing as it is, without prior rules about what it should be.
  179. I definitely believe that if you stop working at relationships, they go away.
  180. I definitely connected to the fact that life gets out of control and you end up doing things and wishing you were doing other things instead.
  181. I definitely had a very religious upbringing. My father was just instilling good morals into us at a very young age, and it wasn’t super-strict, but it was a loving, warm household.
  182. I definitely hand myself over to the hair and makeup gods of ‘Girls.’ Our look on the show is very specific, and it’s different from mine in real life, although I’ve definitely learned things from working with both the hair and makeup people for the show.
  183. I definitely have my opinions that I’m very vocal about and I’m not afraid to put them out there.
  184. I definitely in filmmaking more and more find writing and directing a means to harvest material for editing. It’s all about editing.
  185. I definitely relate so much to a lot of women in comedy, but I don’t love segregating the genders. I’m just as influenced by male comedians as I am female comedians.
  186. I definitely see the good in people. Certainly in my own life I strive to be somebody who is functional and well adjusted and can face conflict in a non-emotional and non-destructive way, and those are the people I try to surround myself with in my life. But as characters, they bore me.
  187. I definitely think cheerleaders have no fear. When I took the ‘Hellcats’ job, I was like, ‘Whoa, this is a sport.’
  188. I definitely think cheerleaders have no fear.
  189. I definitely think it exercises an interesting muscle, auditioning for bad parts and trying to figure out how to make it real. I don’t know what I’m talking about now.
  190. I definitely think there’s some way to understand how people emotionally feel about somebody, but I don’t think data collects it. They’re not going to click your bit.ly link or click your TweetMeme retweet every time.
  191. I definitely want to act, but I also want to score movies, and I have this idea to fuse classical music with other styles that would give it a different perception.
  192. I defy gravity.
  193. I delight to lodge in such temples as are not regularly kept closed. None of the gods reject me; they make me partner of their roof.
  194. I deplore the need or the use of troops anywhere to get American citizens to obey the orders of constituted courts.
  195. I describe Jeb Bush as a ‘low-energy’ individual, and unfortunately for him, that stuck. And it’s true: he’s a low-energy person. That doesn’t make him a bad person.
  196. I describe myself as a simple Buddhist monk. No more, no less.
  197. I deserve respect for the things I did not do.
  198. I design a lot of things that I wear onstage, but I’m always looking for unique stuff. I like creative things, so anything I can find at a secondhand costume shop to a Helmut Lang store, it doesn’t matter – just unique stuff.
  199. I desire so to conduct the affairs of this administration that if at the end… I have lost every other friend on earth, I shall at least have one friend left, and that friend shall be down inside of me.
  200. I desire to press forward for direction to my Master in all things; but as to trusting to my own obedience and righteousness, I should be worse than a fool and ten times worse than a madman.
  201. I desperately need the love of complete strangers. That’s one reason I overtip. I love when skycaps, waiters, and valets are happy to see me.
  202. I despise people who go to the gutter on either the right or the left and hurl rocks at those in the center.
  203. I detest racialism, because I regard it as a barbaric thing, whether it comes from a black man or a white man.
  204. I did a character called Captain Q for Nestle’s Quik. Those commercials were kind of funny.
  205. I did a couple of movies in Brazil, and the actors were incredibly congenial and hung out together a lot. Even the biggest stars would do radio commercials – they’re not put on a pedestal like they are in the United States.
  206. I did a few movies, but the word ‘star’… I cannot compare to a star like Clint Eastwood. I used to call Clint ‘Larry Dickman’ when he would come to my show; then, he started using the name when he would go under cover in a ‘Dirty Harry’ movie. That’s why he’s a movie star… he’s so creative.
  207. I did a lot of my writing as though I was an academic, doing some piece of research as perfectly as possible.
  208. I did a lot of work with myself over the course of being pregnant and the first few months of being pregnant. It’s nice, the pace of being pregnant; it gives you a long time to not just germinate a baby but germinate the mother that you’re gonna be.
  209. I did a picture 40 years ago with Carroll O’Connor and Telly Savalas, God rest their souls, and Clint Eastwood, called ‘Kelly’s Heroes,’ which we filmed in Yugoslavia for six months.
  210. I did a play called ‘Disgraced’ in 2012 at Lincoln Center, which ultimately won the Pulitzer Prize. I played the lead character, a Muslim American, who had renounced Islam and became very anti-Islam.
  211. I did a pop album, ‘Sogno,’ in 1999. I think it’s important to record another pop album because many people love pop music. By this kind of repertoire, some people can later discover classical music.
  212. I did a term at Cambridge University studying medicine, so I could potentially have followed in Mum and Dad’s footsteps and become a doctor.
  213. I did a women’s movie, and I’m not a woman. I did a gay movie, and I’m not gay. I learned as I went along.
  214. I did commit to myself that I would not jump back into being the workaholic that I can be before I gave myself an honest opportunity to create the marriage of my dreams and to create the beginning of the family of my dreams, and that took a hot second.
  215. I did everything – I did newscasts, I did sports, I did dramas.
  216. I did find some time to go to a record store and check out ‘Headstrong’ actually in the racks. It was pretty cool; I never thought I’d see my own CD sitting there with everyone else’s. I made my Mom take lots of pics!
  217. I did go into the Amazonian region of Brazil. They have prehistoric river fish that weigh in at around 600 pounds, which you don’t see anywhere else. And foods that cannot be exported or even found in other parts of Brazil.
  218. I did go there later, but I hadn’t been there before I wrote the book. Sometimes I feel like the imagined can feel more real than the real?
  219. I did have a child, and I was reading a lot of picture books to her, but at the same time writing a children’s book was something that I’d been wanting to do for many years, pretty much since the start of my career.
  220. I did my first cross country race when I was about 10 and absolutely loved it. I wasn’t particularly good, so I didn’t just carry on because I was good, but it just really appealed to me.
  221. I did my first movie, ‘The Mambo Kings,’ in America without speaking the language. I learned the lines phonetically. I had an interpreter actually just to understand directions from my director.
  222. I did not bring Deism into Bavaria.
  223. I did not come into football to make money. I had already made millions.
  224. I did not grow up thinking that I wanted to be an engineer. I had read some articles about girls becoming increasingly scientifically illiterate and that girls lacked confidence in their capabilities when it came to quantitative skills. And I just thought that was kind of wrong.
  225. I did not have a happy family life a few years ago. I was divorced, and I was very alienated from my daughter, and I was out there cutting every ribbon and running around New York hosting events for different causes to supplant my loss because I didn’t have a family to go home to. Now I don’t want to be Mr. Show Business anymore.
  226. I did not lose myself all at once. I rubbed out my face over the years washing away my pain, the same way carvings on stone are worn down by water.
  227. I did not raise my son, Sam, to celebrate Mother’s Day. I didn’t want him to feel some obligation to buy me pricey lunches or flowers, some annual display of gratitude that you have to grit your teeth and endure.
  228. I did not resign from politics because of Bofors. I resigned because I do not know how to play petty politics. I did not know back then and I don’t know now either.
  229. I did not sell Amway, but I sold Shaklee, which was an Amway-type product sold through multi-level marketing.
  230. I did not, thank the Lord, have to have a hysterectomy.
  231. I did not want my tombstone to read, ‘She kept a really clean house.’ I think I’d like them to remember me by saying, ‘She opened government to everyone.’
  232. I did not want to become a poster child for yet another disease.
  233. I did not want to raise a genetically compromised child. I did not want my children to have to contend with the massive diversion of parental attention, and the consequences of being compelled to care for their brother after I died. I wanted a genetically perfect baby, and because that was something I could control, I chose to end his life.
  234. I did not wish to take a cabin passage, but rather to go before the mast and on the deck of the world, for there I could best see the moonlight amid the mountains. I do not wish to go below now.
  235. I did plays in college, and I have half of a play. But I’m kind of stuck. I keep revisiting it so maybe it will move somewhere. There’s something about plays where you can feel that sense of artifice at any moment.
  236. I did plays in high school, but I was convinced you couldn’t make a living doing it. You don’t have a lot of options in Indiana anyway, though, so I didn’t want to stay there. I graduated early and worked a bunch of really odd jobs, and then I joined the Marines.
  237. I did six series for the BBC and that was enough. I’ve been writing for ten years, which is more challenging artistically.
  238. I did stand-up for my grandparents every day when I was, like, eight.
  239. I did stand-up, weird and ignorant stuff about my career – anything for a laugh.
  240. I did telemarketing for years, starting at the age of 16, just selling steak knives to old people. Old people go through a weird amount of steak knives. I also sold straight meat over the telephone.
  241. I did tests on small stones before collecting and committing myself to the larger ones.
  242. I did the best I could, and in some arenas, my best was not good enough. I’ve made some bad choices.
  243. I did the Ed Sullivan show four times. I did the Steve Allen show. I did the Jackie Gleason show.
  244. I did the traditional thing with falling in love with words, reading books and underlining lines I liked and words I didn’t know. It was something I always did.
  245. I did theatre when I was nine, I think. Nine and ten, and that was just the beginning of my whole involvement in acting, my whole interest. I don’t really remember it that well. But it was really fun. I mean, it was exciting just to be on stage in front of an audience. It gives you a different kind of rush.
  246. I did three movies in a row, and that was horrible. It was a horrible experience for me.
  247. I did TV for a bit, and somewhere along the line, I started writing a column for ‘The Independent’ newspaper in England, and now I write features for ‘British Vogue.’
  248. I did very extensive diligence on Al Jazeera English, the network from which Al Jazeera America is going to be derived, and it’s really very clear that they have long since established a reputation for excellence and integrity and objectivity.
  249. I did work at Christie’s for a couple of weeks, getting ready for ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ getting people coffee and doing whatever they needed around the office. It was amazing. I got to see some wonderful art, and everybody was really nice. It was great.
  250. I did work in a strip club, but I didn’t strip. I danced, and I became very popular.
  251. I did write a lot of TV themes – I wrote about 45 of them, and a couple of which are still reference and popular today, like ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ and ‘Facts of Life.’ But I was a limited musician.
  252. I did years of summer stock. I sort of only wanted to be an actor. And then at 19, I was funny, and I had some of these bits that I did for friends, and I immediately could get on television.
  253. I didn’t always take myself that seriously. Image-wise, I was somewhat of a jokester.
  254. I didn’t always value the ways black people talked. I thought, in order to make art out of it, you had to change it.
  255. I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.
  256. I didn’t come from a background of films. I didn’t even really ever watch films. The fact is, my parents weren’t into that stuff, and neither was I.
  257. I didn’t come from any money, but even when I was on ‘Big Love’ – people think you’re on a series and you’re making bank.
  258. I didn’t come from the worst of situations, and I didn’t come into the best of situations. But I’ve appreciated the best situations. And I’ve made the best of the worst situations. I’m lucky to be where I am.
  259. I didn’t come up through the ranks of the conservative movement… I came to these revelations about my own personal politics in a realm in which those books, those ideas, the canon of conservatism, is nonexistent.
  260. I didn’t cook that much as a kid. My mother was cooking, and I was her helper. We made dishes together.
  261. I didn’t die young. So I am very lucky. There are other artists and people that didn’t survive certain things… people can imagine that I did the most dangerous, and I did the worst… for many reasons, I shouldn’t be here.
  262. I didn’t do a movie until I was almost 30. I’m grateful for that because it gave me a chance to be an adult in the world and do work in the regional theater that very few people cared about. I loved it and I wanted to do that stuff.
  263. I didn’t do this by myself, man. It was so many people, so many fans that came in there and cheered for me, night in and night out.
  264. I didn’t even have a clear idea of why I wanted to go to Oxford – apart from the fact I had fallen in love with the architecture. It certainly wasn’t out of some great sense of academic or intellectual achievement. In many ways, my education only began after I’d left university.
  265. I didn’t even know I would be an actor; I always wanted to be a cameraman.
  266. I didn’t expect anything crazy to happen from ‘True Detective.’
  267. I didn’t fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.
  268. I didn’t fear failure. I expected failure.
  269. I didn’t feel attractive in high school.
  270. I didn’t get a lot of awards as a player. But they did have a Bob Uecker Day Off for me once in Philly.
  271. I didn’t get into acting to have a moment, I got into it because of people who’ve inspired me, like Judi Dench, Holly Hunter, and Jodie Foster.
  272. I didn’t get married until I was 38.
  273. I didn’t get old on purpose, it just happened. If you’re lucky, it could happen to you.
  274. I didn’t go into politics because I wanted to win a popularity contest.
  275. I didn’t go to business school, didn’t care about financial stuff and the stock market.
  276. I didn’t go to film school. I got my education on the set as a niche publicist in the film industry.
  277. I didn’t grow up in a house – we moved a lot, and we always lived in apartments. But we looked a lot; we went to open houses almost every weekend. I think that’s why I always wanted a house.
  278. I didn’t harbor a huge desire to become a chef until I graduated from college.
  279. I didn’t have a normal academic career. I never studied cinema. I learned from life.
  280. I didn’t have a role model when I was younger.
  281. I didn’t have any fixed goals when I joined the film industry. I don’t particularly feel ‘successful,’ but I am grateful that my career is going well.
  282. I didn’t have any relationships in my teenage years, as I felt I was not attractive enough.
  283. I didn’t have any success in show business until I was 30 to 31 years of age.
  284. I didn’t have high self-esteem when I was a teen-ager, as I think most teen-agers don’t.
  285. I didn’t have nothin’ going for me… school, home… until I found something I loved, which was music, and that changed everything.
  286. I didn’t have the easiest time growing up; it’s no secret. We were just poor.
  287. I didn’t have to learn Selma to make ‘Selma.’ I didn’t have to research what kind of place this is. The people I love most in the world live in that part of the country.
  288. I didn’t have to win, and winning wasn’t important to me. Being world champion wasn’t important to me. What was important to me was entertaining the audience, and whether that meant winning, losing, singing, or whatever it was on the live show we were doing every week, which was awesome, I was game for it.
  289. I didn’t just get to 75 years by tiptoeing. I had to work hard sometimes.
  290. I didn’t just invent saying offensive things.
  291. I didn’t know any gay people in my childhood.
  292. I didn’t know I was a slave until I found out I couldn’t do the things I wanted.
  293. I didn’t leave bodybuilding until I felt that I had gone as far as I could go. It will be the same with my film career. When I feel the time is right, I will then consider public service. I feel that the highest honor comes from serving people and your country.
  294. I didn’t like fairy tales when I was younger. I found a lot of fairy tales scary. They really didn’t sit well with me.
  295. I didn’t like when people said that actresses have shelf life.
  296. I didn’t make music videos in order to make a movie. Music videos were the goal for me, so it was never a step to something else. I approached it seriously.
  297. I didn’t make the most of school, but boxing has given me discipline.
  298. I didn’t mean to be a TV presenter, I just hated modeling. It feels very odd that it’s turned into this ‘It-girl’ thing. What does that even mean? I wear clothes and I go out. It’s so weird.
  299. I didn’t mind being in a school with a small African-American population. The African-American-community was very tight, and that was great. But I also wanted to interact with other types of folks.
  300. I didn’t mind studying. Obviously math and the physical science subjects interested me more than some of the more artistic subjects, but I think I was a pretty good student.
  301. I didn’t moisturise when I was younger, but when I got to 27 I decided to start slathering myself in oil, and now I’m obsessed with moisturising.
  302. I didn’t necessarily fit in in high school. I felt very awkward. I still feel completely awkward and weird in my body sometimes. I’m hoping that’s going to go away, but I’ve just embraced it as reality.
  303. I didn’t need to get knocked down to know the fortitude that I have in me.
  304. I didn’t picture myself as a movie actress. I began to think about it around college. I remember thinking, ‘Well somebody has to be in them,’ so maybe I could do that eventually. It’s all been a surprise.
  305. I didn’t realize how hard it was to run a small business.
  306. I didn’t really choose to write; I more or less fell into it.
  307. I didn’t really get comfortable until I got to UCLA, and I had to take an acting course because I was studying theater arts.
  308. I didn’t really get to Led Zeppelin until I was in my 20s.
  309. I didn’t really go the starving-artist route. I kind of went and did massive, commercial things.
  310. I didn’t really grow up listening to blues, because I grew up in the Northwest. It wasn’t really the center for blues.
  311. I didn’t really know how to make a film when I made ‘Control’. I had to create my own language, just as I did when I started taking photographs. I never studied either one.
  312. I didn’t really sign up to be a celebrity, I only signed up to be a writer.
  313. I didn’t really want to live, so anything that was an investment in time made me angry… but also I just felt sad. When the hopelessness is hurting you, it’s the fixtures and fittings that finish you off.
  314. I didn’t see deep emotion from my parents. It was all very polite and very surface. I never knew how anybody was feeling.
  315. I didn’t see how wearing prosthetics was quite so different from being born with flaming red hair in a crowd of black-haired babies, or being of a different religion from that of every other child in your area.
  316. I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
  317. I didn’t start out thinking that I could ever make films. I started out being a film lover, loving films, and wanting to have a job that put me close to them and close to filmmakers and close to film sets.
  318. I didn’t start playing drums until I was 12, for school band; they didn’t have any saxophones left. My step-pops had a kit at the house, and I had never done anything that I understood so quick. It was so natural. It was the most fun and consistent thing in my life.
  319. I didn’t start sweating until I had children. That was one of the first things I realized when my daughter Violet was born – I started getting wicked BO. You know there’s a difference between basketball BO and stress BO? This was definitely stress BO. Like, new dad BO.
  320. I didn’t start writing songs, honestly, until I started making my album. I was always doing poetry, but I never thought I could write songs. I discouraged myself and thought it was so hard. But starting this process and learning just what it is to be a songwriter and performer taught me that you don’t have to feel discouraged about anything.
  321. I didn’t take constructive criticism the way I should have. When I finally caught up to that, that’s when I went to being the MVP.
  322. I didn’t think about money or cars or anything like that.
  323. I didn’t think; I experimented.
  324. I didn’t think it was special to be able to sing.
  325. I didn’t think Marilyn Monroe was beautiful. It used to worry me. I thought maybe I’m not put together like the other chaps.
  326. I didn’t used to wear a watch. Now I have a SPOT watch, which I wear all the time.
  327. I didn’t want to be one of those women who wake up at 63 years old and realize they’ve missed the window of opportunity for marriage and children.
  328. I didn’t want to be perceived as a girly girl on stage.
  329. I didn’t want to be written about as a human-interest story. I didn’t want to be a passing thing. You know, now we move on to the fat girl who had her stomach stapled. I didn’t want to become a gimmick: the disabled model.
  330. I didn’t want to become a chocolatier among others, buying ready-to-use couverture. I wanted to take the same approach I follow in my cuisine: putting the product first, revealing the authentic taste of the products.
  331. I didn’t want to box it in or say this show caters to this type of person… I think the tide of music is changing. We don’t have to worry about rules. We should just do what feels good.
  332. I didn’t want to go to college or work in an office or have a nine-to-five job. I knew that quite clearly before I left school.
  333. I didn’t want to let women down. One of the stereotypes I see breaking is the idea of aging and older women not being beautiful.
  334. I didn’t want to make cinema so a person forgets himself and has a lot of fun. ‘I forget myself, I am a little poor consumer.’ I wanted to make a picture where someone who sees it say, ‘This is me! This is me!’
  335. I didn’t want to submit to the army and then, on the day of judgment, have God say to me, ‘Why did you do that?’ This life is a trial, and you realize that what you do is going to be written down for Judgment Day.
  336. I didn’t want to write a cheffy cookbook with dehydrated ham chips.
  337. I didn’t watch much TV as a kid and I don’ t watch it now. I don’ t find anything beautiful or unique to the medium, and the only thing you can do on TV that you can’t do in film is make a continuing story – which is so cool!
  338. I didn’t write about my mother much in the third year after she died. I was still trying to get my argument straight: When her friends or our relatives wondered why I was still so hard on her, I could really lay out the case for what it had been like to be raised by someone who had loathed herself, her husband, even her own name.
  339. I dig Steve Harvey: he’s the suit man. I be checking him out.
  340. I disagree with a couple of the stances of the Catholic Church. My older brother is gay, and it’s important for me to be able to love him completely and freely, and it’s important for me to spread beliefs in the world that are not going to limit people in their love. I can’t support a religion that doesn’t support my brother.
  341. I discovered after going to music festivals that I am a rock fan. I love the guitars, the phrasing, and the abandon of rock fans.
  342. I discovered how science is truly a universal language, one that forges new connections among individuals and opens the mind to ideas that go far beyond the classroom.
  343. I discovered I was passionate about the creative process, the product development, creating a concept around a fragrance or lipstick.
  344. I discovered surfing, which I absolutely fell in love with. That feels good and kind of keeps your body aligned, so does the salt water.
  345. I discovered that if one looks a little closer at this beautiful world, there are always red ants underneath.
  346. I dislike feeling at home when I am abroad.
  347. I dislike the word ‘self-help.’ Self-awareness, yes, but not self-help.
  348. I divide criticism into two categories – one coming from those who understand music, who are worthy of being critical because they are knowledgeable about what they are saying; and then there is another category of people who would criticise you anyway, whether your work is good or bad.
  349. I divide my time badly.
  350. I do a lot of cardio. I think it’s super important, especially for women. I don’t have a tremendous amount of time to work out, so I find myself cramming in a cardio because that’s all I can fit in. I think that if you don’t have a lot of time, that it’s the cleanest way to burn a few calories.
  351. I do accept that, with – with respect to those vague terms in the Constitution such as equal protection of the laws, due process of law, cruel and unusual punishments. I fully accept that those things have to apply to new phenomena that didn’t exist at the time.
  352. I do admire Judi Dench and Sir Ian McKellen, but I’m a philistine. I like the good life too much; I’m not good at going on stage night after night and on wet Wednesday afternoons.
  353. I do admit that I’ve never been one to fit in easily to any given pattern. It’s not my choice. It’s just the way I am. So if the characters I wind up playing are all a bit different, it must be because that’s the way I like it. Anna Kendrick is different, and she’s going to stay that way.
  354. I do all my own stunts. I’m kidding.
  355. I do all the evil I can before I learn to shun it? Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.
  356. I do believe, and I will always believe, that Shakespeare on film is really something that should be tried more often because it is an opportunity to take the humanity that Shakespeare writes into characters and express it.
  357. I do believe at some point in time everyone will be genotyped at birth.
  358. I do believe in fate.
  359. I do believe in self-help.
  360. I do believe in the energy and the productivity of the American business world.
  361. I do believe that any successful business starts from the top and works its way down.
  362. I do believe that I deserve what I have. I don’t think I’m entitled to it. That’s a big difference.
  363. I do believe that making a factory for innovation, a moon-shot factory, is possible.
  364. I do believe that music has an intense power to connect us together, to inspire us to become ourselves.
  365. I do believe that when your child does poorly on a test, your first step should not necessarily be to attack the teacher or the school’s curriculum. It should be to look at the idea that, maybe, the child didn’t work hard enough.
  366. I do believe the Democratic party has moved far to the right. I do believe that the party has a bunch of elephants running around in donkey clothes.
  367. I do come from a strong family.
  368. I do consider how I spend my time off carefully because I’ve got two kids.
  369. I do consider myself to be a smart, tough girl.
  370. I do devotion in the morning. I pray and I read the word.
  371. I do everything on my phone!
  372. I do fantasize about having my own shop one day.
  373. I do feel at times like I’m always proving myself. But I also feel that I’m proven. I’ve proven I can get to the mountaintop.
  374. I do feel like food should cost more, because we aren’t paying farmers a living wage. It has to cost more.
  375. I do feel more myself in America. I can regress there, and they have roller-coaster parks.
  376. I do feel pressure from the outside world a little bit just because everybody wants new music, which is really nice. It just proves that everybody likes what I’m doing. But at the same time, I feel like it’s important to just chill and experience things and really make the songs true to me.
  377. I do films that I like. I have done comedy, romance, everything, and I always like to do it differently from the previous ones.
  378. I do genuinely believe that the political system is not linear. When it reaches a tipping point fashioned by a critical mass of opinion, the slow pace of change we’re used to will no longer be the norm. I see a lot of signs every day that we’re moving closer and closer to that tipping point.
  379. I do get credit for having a California sound to my music, but I don’t think people really know what that means – they think the Beach Boys. I’m thinking more like Sunset Strip in the 1960s and stuff like that.
  380. I do go back and listen to my songs. I’m biting my fingernails the whole way through, but I do listen. I have a lot of songs I’ve wanted to re-record just because of how advanced technology is and the different instrument sounds that I’m more experienced with.
  381. I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I’m so fair.
  382. I do have a lot of gays in my family now, but some will never come out.
  383. I do have a political agenda. It’s to have as few regulations as possible.
  384. I do have a self-censor; everybody does, or at least most who are not pathological do.
  385. I do have ADD and in real life, I’m all over the place and can hardly focus. If we were talking for, for more than an hour or so, I’d start drifting off… I can’t sit still too long.
  386. I do have an ego, but I acknowledge the help I get.
  387. I do have anger management issues. Not clinical. Probably no more than most people.
  388. I do have moments when I feel insecure. I do have moments when I feel jealous, and that’s normal. It’s a very normal emotion. It’s your action and your attitude and your reaction to that that is important.
  389. I do have my ducks in line if I want to do it, but I’d love to see the Republicans pick somebody that was going to win and take over this country and frankly, to use the expression, ‘Make America great again.’
  390. I do have tatoos, and I do wear leather, but there are other sides of me, that my film express.
  391. I do have to give it up for Sarah Palin on one account. She is brave.
  392. I do have to take care of myself, not only because I’m in the movies, just for mental health reasons. I exercise for me. You know, maybe it would be nice to not have to do that in order to feel good, but I do. I feel like I have to, to feel good. To clear my head and all of that, so.
  393. I do know it’s great to have a support from a fan base of a team. Football is such a team game, such a team aspect to it… Good things happen, the praise is spread around; and bad things happen, usually it’s not just one person’s fault.
  394. I do know that I think children should be vaccinated because that affects the health of all the other children.
  395. I do know that Syria never will recognize Lebanon as an independent country, and the declaration of independence of Lebanon took place in 1943. Syria never – Syria never have recognized Lebanon. They regard Lebanon as part of Syria.
  396. I do know that you have to choose between the logic of reconciliation and the logic of justice. Pure justice leads to new civil war. I prefer the negotiable revolution.
  397. I do like challenge.
  398. I do like men and I had, you know, a guy in high school that I wanted to marry desperately. He’s the mayor of some small town in Texas. I could be the mayor’s wife right now.
  399. I do like my sugar at night, but I try to keep it to a minimum.
  400. I do like routines. Waking up the same time, go to bed the same time.
  401. I do like to have guns around. I don’t like to carry them. But I like – if somebody is going to come into my house and I have not put out the welcome mat, I want to stop them.
  402. I do listen to myself sometimes and think, ‘Is my moral compass so easily swayed by the characters I play, or is it me growing as a human being?’
  403. I do love email. Wherever possible I try to communicate asynchronously. I’m really good at email.
  404. I do love nature, but I don’t suppose I’d spent more time in zoos as a child than anyone else!
  405. I do love shoes that make my legs longer. I have the upper body of someone who’s 5ft 8in, so high heels help me even out the discrepancy.
  406. I do love the films I’ve done in the past. I work hard in my movies and my friends work hard and we’re trying to make people laugh and I’m very proud of that.
  407. I do most of the cooking in my head.
  408. I do my very best to avoid shark fin.
  409. I do my workouts in the morning, and often I’ll take someone from my team. The person I’m meeting with can pick the class, whether it’s a spin or barre class, or going for a power walk. It’s hard to run and talk – I haven’t mastered that yet.
  410. I do not accept being a prisoner of fear. Of Communism, of fascism. That, one can bear. But of one’s fear. No. Never.
  411. I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us.
  412. I do not believe any of the statistical claims that are made about public opinion. I don’t see why anybody does.
  413. I do not believe evil men are led by God. I believe there are plots of evil. We live in a sinful world, and there are a lot of things that happen as a result of sin.
  414. I do not believe having a baby is punishment.
  415. I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.
  416. I do not believe in God, angels and the hereafter.
  417. I do not believe in immortality of the individual, and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern with no superhuman authority behind it.
  418. I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil.
  419. I do not believe that any man fears to be dead, but only the stroke of death.
  420. I do not believe that civilization will be wiped out in a war fought with the atomic bomb. Perhaps two-thirds of the people of the earth will be killed.
  421. I do not believe that civilizations have to die because civilization is not an organism. It is a product of wills.
  422. I do not believe that people want to work hard enough and they want to find the quick Twitter, SEO. Anybody who’s obsessed with SEO has lost already, period. I believe that firmly.
  423. I do not believe that sheer suffering teaches. If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness and the willingness to remain vulnerable.
  424. I do not belong to this world. I continue to write everything in longhand. If I have to see something on the Internet, I ask my secretary or students. I am lucky, because I have people who do it for me.
  425. I do not care for the money, just for the glory.
  426. I do not choose characters because I think, ‘Wow, that woman is so strong.’ I chose these characters with utmost conviction because I think they were realistic enough to exist, and I really liked the scripts.
  427. I do not choose that my grave should be dug while I am still alive.
  428. I do not concern myself with gods and spirits either good or evil nor do I serve any.
  429. I do not consider myself a feminist. I do not believe that by doing female-oriented films that depict a woman fighting the system, we can change the system.
  430. I do not deny that I planned sabotage. I did not plan it in a spirit of recklessness nor because I have any love of violence. I planned it as a result of a calm and sober assessment of the political situation that had arisen after many years of tyranny, exploitation and oppression of my people by the whites.
  431. I do not diminish the incredible symbolic importance of a black man getting elected president. But my euphoria was a smart guy getting elected president. Maybe for the first time in my lifetime we had elected one of the thousand smartest Americans president.
  432. I do not doubt that we would become more useful if we praised God more, and others would join us, for they would see that God has blessed us.
  433. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved – I do not expect the house to fall – but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.
  434. I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
  435. I do not find it easy to articulate thoughts about religion. I remain the sort of person who turns off ‘Thought for the Day’ when it comes on the radio.
  436. I do not forgive!
  437. I do not have a merchandise line. I don’t sell knives or apparel. Though I have been approached to endorse various products from liquor to airlines to automobiles to pharmaceuticals dozens of times, I have managed to resist the temptation.
  438. I do not have a problem, I enjoy gambling, but I think people are trying to make it seem like I have a problem, because people really don’t know.
  439. I do not have deep theological understanding or opinion, but I do not read the Bible as the literal word of God.
  440. I do not have much patience with a thing of beauty that must be explained to be understood. If it does need additional interpretation by someone other than the creator, then I question whether it has fulfilled its purpose.
  441. I do not hold to non-violence for moral reasons, but for political and practical reasons.
  442. I do not know what the spirit of a philosopher could more wish to be than a good dancer. For the dance is his ideal, also his fine art, finally also the only kind of piety he knows, his ‘divine service.’
  443. I do not know whether there are gods, but there ought to be.
  444. I do not like the human race. I don’t like their heads, I don’t like their faces, I don’t like their feet, I don’t like their conversations, I don’t like their hairdos, I don’t like their automobiles.
  445. I do not like the man who squanders life for fame; give me the man who living makes a name.
  446. I do not like to repeat successes, I like to go on to other things.
  447. I do not like vaudeville, but what can I do? It likes me.
  448. I do not long for the world as it was when I was a child. I do not long for the person I was in that world. I do not want to be the person I am now in that world then. None of the forms nostalgia can take fits. I found childhood boring. I was glad it was over.
  449. I do not pilfer victory.
  450. I do not pretend to start with precise questions. I do not think you can start with anything precise. You have to achieve such precision as you can, as you go along.
  451. I do not read advertisements. I would spend all of my time wanting things.
  452. I do not read the ancient languages, but I am beginning to study Greek.
  453. I do not recall a Jewish home without a book on the table.
  454. I do not recognize the right of the public to break in the front door of a man’s private life in order to satisfy the gaze of the curious… I do not think it right to dissect living men even for the advancement of science. So far as I am concerned, I prefer a post mortem examination to vivisection without anaesthetics.
  455. I do not regret one professional enemy I have made. Any actor who doesn’t dare to make an enemy should get out of the business.
  456. I do not represent the Republican Party.
  457. I do not say anything from jealousy.
  458. I do not so much rejoice that God hath made me to be a Queen, as to be a Queen over so thankful a people.
  459. I do not speak through my characters; it’s not a ventriloquist act.
  460. I do not take a single newspaper, nor read one a month, and I feel myself infinitely the happier for it.
  461. I do not think anyone can ever do anything without the help and will of God.
  462. I do not think athletes should get a free pass. I don’t think we should train our children and future athletes to believe that they are above the law and morality.
  463. I do not think I could myself be brought to support a man for office whom I knew to be an open enemy of, and scoffer at, religion.
  464. I do not think I should care to go on worshipping a Madonna even if she did wink. One cannot make much out of a wink. We want something more than that from the object of our adoration.
  465. I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.
  466. I do not think that I am a natural born mother… If I ever wanted to mother anyone, it was my father.
  467. I do not think there was anything abusive in my house. Yet, I stand by a lot of my critiques of Western parenting. I think there’s a lot of questions about how you instill true self-esteem.
  468. I do not understand where the backing of Bitcoin is coming from. There is no fundamental issue of capabilities of repaying it in anything which is universally acceptable, which is either intrinsic value of the currency or the credit or trust of the individual who is issuing the money, whether it’s a government or an individual.
  469. I do not want a husband who honours me as a queen, if he does not love me as a woman.
  470. I do not want the peace which passeth understanding, I want the understanding which bringeth peace.
  471. I do not want to ask people to go consume something unless I think it is important in some way.
  472. I do not want to foresee the future. I am concerned with taking care of the present. God has given me no control over the moment following.
  473. I do not write, I build.
  474. I do notice a lot of people who want to shock to get laughs. It’s such a tricky thing; you don’t want to make rules about it. There’s nobody more hilarious than Dave Attell, and he’d break every rule you set up. But he’s funny.
  475. I do personal attacks only on people who specialize in personal attacks.
  476. I do play tennis, but I don’t really like competition. I’m supposed to be so intense, but I hate competition.
  477. I do protect human rights, and I hope I shall always be looked up as a champion of human rights.
  478. I do remember how it was to be poor. I do remember that in my early years, we had to grow and raise all of our food, even our animals. And I remember in my early life, we didn’t even have electricity. So it was very, very hard times then.
  479. I do respect them; I have great respect for women. In fact, one of the reasons ‘The Apprentice’ was such a successful show for so many years, the audience of women was fantastic.
  480. I do say things that I think will shock people. But I don’t do things to shock people. I’m not trying to be the next Tupac, but I don’t know how long I’m going to be on this planet. So while I’m here, I might as well make the most of it.
  481. I do situations and make fun of authority and life.
  482. I do some 400 m. repetition running for endurance on the court. I’ll be in the gym lifting weights, or I’ll be putting in a lot of core stability to work to improve my balance.
  483. I do some kind of work, whether writing or painting or recording, on a daily basis. And it’s so essential that when I’m involved in the actual process, my so-called ‘real life’ becomes almost incidental, which becomes worrying.
  484. I do sometimes cook myself, and I do enjoy it, though it does depend what’s in the fridge, and filming can mean I don’t have much time.
  485. I do sport at the gym a few times a week, but I hate it. Work is my only remedy. I feel so twisted and horrible in the morning, but then I go to the office and I start feeling better. Work is my Tylenol. Extra-strength.
  486. I do suffer from depression, I suppose. Which isn’t that unusual. You know, a lot of people do.
  487. I do take my work seriously and the way to do that is not to take yourself too seriously.
  488. I do the dishes every night – other people volunteer, but I like the way I do it.
  489. I do the ‘New York Times’ crossword puzzle every morning to keep the old grey matter ticking.
  490. I do the same exercises I did 50 years ago and they still work. I eat the same food I ate 50 years ago and it still works.
  491. I do the very best I know how – the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing so until the end.
  492. I do the whole 10-event thing, but at the end of the day, it’s still track and field.
  493. I do think, in general, children are so perceptive, and they watch and they get so much, and that’s wonderful. And it’s also difficult for them because they see so much, but they don’t understand.
  494. I do think that a minister who can preach a sermon without addressing sinners does not know how to preach.
  495. I do think that many Americans have a limited view of what constitutes Japanese cartooning based on what gets translated, so it’s great to see an increase in diversity.
  496. I do think that maybe, even subconsciously, a lot of parents in the West are wondering, have we gone too far in the direction of coddling and protecting – you know, you see kids, sometimes that seem very rude and disrespectful. And the more important thing is they don’t seem that happy.
  497. I do think that the emotional weight of ‘Biutiful’ has blinded some viewers to the beauty and complexity of the film.
  498. I do think that travel can be part of a journey of inner maturation, but you’ve got to do it right.
  499. I do think there are some great female comics: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph. They’re the whole ball of wax.
  500. I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown. You can buy a much cheaper cell phone or laptop, but Apple’s product is so much better than the alternative, and people are willing to pay that premium.
  501. I do think your personal life has an impact on your tennis. If your private life is up and down, and you’re thinking about what is going on back home, then you aren’t solely focused on your job, but when things are good back home, it’s so much easier when you’re on court. It’s not necessarily marriage; it’s more having a stable relationship.
  502. I do value the respect I get from my contemporaries, but to have Oasis cover my song, to have Puff Daddy cover a song, to have Goldie come along to my gigs – that’s where my ego is at. To have my fellow musicians like what I do, that’s very cool.
  503. I do – very specifically, I remember Bessie Smith; I used to collect 78 records that I would buy from the St Vincent de Paul store at five cents apiece, and I did this indiscriminately. I would just take whatever was there. And I listened to Patti Page and Walter Huston, ‘September Song.’
  504. I do want to be a representative of the African community, and I want to hold myself and dress myself in a way that reflects that. I want black kids to see me and think, ‘Okay, he’s carrying himself as a black man, and that’s how a black man should carry himself.’
  505. I do want to go another way – to write something completely different.
  506. I do want to write again. I hope to. But it’s also important for me to realize, as I get older, that I don’t have to be doing everything all at once.
  507. I do watch what I eat, but I don’t make it myself. When I eat out, I just have to make sure the things I buy are good and healthy.
  508. I do wear a lot of hats, and sometimes people get confused with all that I do, but one thing that I am extraordinarily passionate about is furthering women’s rights. I think it’s something that’s incredibly important, not just for girls everywhere but also boys to get involved in.
  509. I do weight training and follow strict diet. It is very important to look a certain way. I don’t think being extra skinny and thin is desirable, but you have to be fit.
  510. I do what I can, but I’ll always give it a shot. You’re not going to see me playing a Welsh character any time soon, not because I wouldn’t love to. I went up to Wales once and read for a film with Rhys Ifans, and haven’t been asked back since. We did have a nice time on the train on the way back.
  511. I do what I do, and write what I write, without calculating what is worth what and so on. Fortunately, I am not a banker or an accountant. I feel that there is a time when a political statement needs to be made and I make it.
  512. I do wish I could write like some of the American women, who can be clever and heartfelt and hopeful; people like Lorrie Moore and Jennifer Egan. But Ireland messed me up too much, I think, so I can’t.
  513. I do worry about the expectation to look a certain way.
  514. I do write a lot of children’s songs, and I’m going to do a children’s television show, which also means I’ll be doing a lot of albums. So I do hope my future will hold a lot of things for children.
  515. I do write long, long character notes – family background, history, details of appearance – much more than will ever appear in the novel. I think this is what lifts a book from that early calculated, artificial stage.
  516. I do yoga every morning, then I run for half an hour and take a sauna.
  517. I donate heavily to the church and various churches in the Detroit community and food banks.
  518. I done wrestled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale; handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail; only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalised a brick; I’m so mean I make medicine sick.
  519. I don’t actually go to that many concerts.
  520. I don’t agree that I have a lot of confidence.
  521. I don’t approve of sunbathing, and it’s bad for you.
  522. I don’t avoid anyone but I always think some people hate me.
  523. I don’t believe a mistake-free learning environment exists.
  524. I don’t believe Fermat had a proof. I think he fooled himself into thinking he had a proof.
  525. I don’t believe in altering the Constitution.
  526. I don’t believe in an outside agent that creates the world, then walks away. But I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass, in every cell of my body. And it is that intelligence that, I wouldn’t say created the universe. It is creating the universe. It’s an ongoing process.
  527. I don’t believe in any kind of fundamentalism.
  528. I don’t believe in any particular definition of the afterlife, but I do believe we’re spiritual creatures and more than our biology and that energy cannot be destroyed, but can change. I don’t know what the afterlife is going to be, but I’m not afraid of it.
  529. I don’t believe in asking God for anything. If I am worthy, He will give it to me. I think we should earn his blessings; I have never believed in mannats.
  530. I don’t believe in astrology; I’m a Sagittarius and we’re skeptical.
  531. I don’t believe in collective guilt, but I do believe in collective responsibility.
  532. I don’t believe in competitions between artists. This is insane. Who has the authority to say someone is better?
  533. I don’t believe in death, neither in flesh nor in spirit.
  534. I don’t believe in failing. I have dignity.
  535. I don’t believe in firing professors. They have academic freedom.
  536. I don’t believe in God but I’m very interested in her.
  537. I don’t believe in guilt; I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person. And don’t judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.
  538. I don’t believe in hasty marriages.
  539. I don’t believe in having a rest day.
  540. I don’t believe in killing whatever the reason!
  541. I don’t believe in letting fear dictate what you do, but that doesn’t mean you don’t feel afraid or frightened. I think it’s normal and healthy to be afraid in situations.
  542. I don’t believe in nepotism. I don’t much like the idea of parents who interfere.
  543. I don’t believe in pessimism. If something doesn’t come up the way you want, forge ahead. If you think it’s going to rain, it will.
  544. I don’t believe in pressure. The pressure is not being prepared for what you want to do.
  545. I don’t believe in private education.
  546. I don’t believe in professional dissidents. I think it’s just a phase, like adolescence.
  547. I don’t believe in spending money lavishly, now that I’m making money.
  548. I don’t believe in superheroes but I love Batman movies. There’s a part of every person that is entertained by the idealistic, the fantastic.
  549. I don’t believe in the polls. I try to concentrate on the day of elections.
  550. I don’t believe in the so-called Olympic spirit. I speak from personal experience. When China hosted the Games, it failed to include the people. The event was constructed without regard for their joy.
  551. I don’t believe it. Prove it to me and I still won’t believe it.
  552. I don’t believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive.
  553. I don’t believe that old cliche that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can’t sit still.
  554. I don’t believe that the public knows what it wants; this is the conclusion that I have drawn from my career.
  555. I don’t believe that you have to be a cow to know what milk is.
  556. I don’t believe there is such a thing as ‘moderate Islam.’ I think it’s better to talk about degrees of belief and degrees of practice.
  557. I don’t believe there’s a red state in America where people believe you should cut Medicare, Social Security and veterans’ benefits rather than doing away with corporate tax loopholes.
  558. I don’t believe there’s anything in life you can’t go back and fix. The ancient Vedas – the oldest Hindu philosophy – and modern science agree that time is an illusion. If that’s true, there’s no such thing as a past or a future – it’s all one huge now. So what you fix now affects the past and the future.
  559. I don’t believe war is a way to solve problems. I think it’s wrong. I don’t have respect for the people that made the decisions to go on with war. I don’t have that much respect for Bush. He’s about war, I’m not about war – a lot of people aren’t about war.
  560. I don’t build in order to have clients. I have clients in order to build.
  561. I don’t burn any calories trying to be masculine; I just happen to be from that world.
  562. I don’t buy these rag magazines that feed off of stolen, you know, press. They’re basically stealing someone’s image in order to make money for themselves… They wait at the end of my street in their cars. Every time I exit my home, I have company.
  563. I don’t call him ‘The Rock’ to his face.
  564. I don’t call myself a Buddhist. I’m a free spirit. I believe I’m here on earth to admire and enjoy it; that’s my religion.
  565. I don’t care about names attached to the script. That doesn’t matter to me. All things being equal, I would like to work with a good script with a good director, and the part I play is of less important than those two factors.
  566. I don’t care about writing really.
  567. I don’t care for physical activity. I’m not sporty. I’m not very coordinated.
  568. I don’t care how many championships you’ve won or how many records you’ve broken – if you’ve had a hand in pushing forward not only a game but women in sport’s movement, then I think that’s pretty darn good.
  569. I don’t care how small or big they are, insects freak me out.
  570. I don’t care. I feel like if we don’t make a trade, we have to get it done with what we’ve got.
  571. I don’t care if I get $50 million to do a film.
  572. I don’t care if I get $50m to do a film.
  573. I don’t care if my books don’t sell abroad; we have a large enough market in our country. I write for Indian readers.
  574. I don’t care if the average guy on the street really knows what I’m like, as long as he knows I’m not really a mean, vicious guy. My friends and family know what I’m really like. That’s what’s important.
  575. I don’t care if they eat me alive, I’ve got better things to do then survive.
  576. I don’t care if you’re Republican or a Democrat or a Liberal, getting crucified for the way you think or believe, obviously if it’s not hurting anyone, it’s just Un-American.
  577. I don’t care much for equations myself. This is partly because it is difficult for me to write them down, but mainly because I don’t have an intuitive feeling for equations.
  578. I don’t care what right-wing white people are thinking.
  579. I don’t care what straight people do, I don’t care what gay people do. I don’t care what nobody do. That’s they business. I just care about what I do. You know what I’m saying?
  580. I don’t care what the depth chart is. I don’t care what I’m on. I’m going to enjoy it, and I’m going to seize every opportunity that I get, because that’s the most important thing.
  581. I don’t care when people use the term ‘one-Slam wonder’ with me.
  582. I don’t care whether you’re driving a hybrid or an SUV. If you’re headed for a cliff, you have to change direction. That’s what the American people called for in November, and that’s what we intend to deliver.
  583. I don’t care who you are, you’re going to choke in certain matches. You get to a point where your legs don’t move and you can’t take a deep breath. You start to hit the ball about a yard wide, instead of inches.
  584. I don’t carry any early childhood trauma around with me, if that’s what you’re hinting at. The story of the bicycles – and there were three of them which were stolen from me – I’ve dealt with it well.
  585. I don’t clean, I don’t make the bed. I spend my salary. I worry a lot. I just don’t worry about socks on the floor.
  586. I don’t come from a position that I am better than everybody; I come from a position that I had a tough upbringing. And I don’t always highlight it, because I just never wanted to be that person with another rags to riches story.
  587. I don’t consider myself a celebrity. That would be kind of sad.
  588. I don’t consider myself a pariah.
  589. I don’t consider myself a political comedian because it’s so hard. It takes time away from me saying terrible things about TV.
  590. I don’t consider myself an artist necessarily, but craftsmen or people in the arts, their spiritualism is sort of when you’re writing well or performing well or doing whatever you do well, there’s an element of that that’s either God-given, a talent that you’re not necessarily responsible for.
  591. I don’t consider myself an intellectual. And this is not one of my aims. But I admire intellectual people.
  592. I don’t consider myself to be a celebrity. I don’t fit that mould.
  593. I don’t consider myself to be that credulous.
  594. I don’t cook, ’cause I don’t know how to cook.
  595. I don’t crave applause. I’m not one of those guys who comes alive on stage. I’m much more alive at home, I think.
  596. I don’t create companies for the sake of creating companies, but to get things done.
  597. I don’t date celebrities.
  598. I don’t date my girlfriend because she’s a model. I date her because I love her.
  599. I don’t digest things with my mind.
  600. I don’t do a lot of reflecting. I’m usually about getting on with it.
  601. I don’t do any vulgar movements.
  602. I don’t do anything on stage that allows me to become a trained seal, where you’re just doing the same thing over and over.
  603. I don’t do anything unless I think about it six months in advance.
  604. I don’t do crazy things – I just don’t.
  605. I don’t do impressions.
  606. I don’t do much driving – about 5,000-6,000 miles a year. And most of that is to the airport and to the racing circuits.
  607. I don’t do that much sampling. I create all my own sounds.
  608. I don’t do the same food in Tokyo that I do in Vegas and vice versa. If I did that, two weeks later I would have no customers.
  609. I don’t dream – only if I’m uncomfortable or I’m going through something.
  610. I don’t drink, and I don’t smoke. It’s a personal preference. My mom has never drunk or smoked. I look up to my mom.
  611. I don’t drink much anymore, but when I traveled with Frank Sinatra, God rest his soul, I used to drink like I could do it. He made it a test. In Vegas, the Rat Pack, which I was a little part of, drank all night and slept most of the day. Then, about 5 o’clock, we’d meet in the hotel steam room, lock the door, and steam our brains out.
  612. I don’t dye my hair and I can go without makeup.
  613. I don’t eat much meat, fish, or poultry.
  614. I don’t eat with beautiful women alone.
  615. I don’t enjoy writing newspaper articles any more than people like reading them. I’m a standup comic, not a journalist, although sometimes onstage I will say: ‘What else is in the news?’ Writing is work, which I’m not comfortable with.
  616. I don’t envy or much respect people who are completely politicised.
  617. I don’t eschew autobiographical writing, but I’m not interested in mine to be so straightforward. The things that tend to move me the most are often those that I have to figure out its meaning for myself. The human being’s ability to make a metaphor to describe a human experience is just really cool.
  618. I don’t even draw on my life experiences when I’m acting. I just try and make it feel like I’m living through that person’s skin.
  619. I don’t even have a TV.
  620. I don’t even have voice mail, and people get all out of shape about that. But, you know what, I don’t want to transcribe your message; I want to talk to you. And that kind of freaks people out a bit. They go, ‘Oh, who has time to talk?’ and I’m like, ‘Well, I’m gonna make time.’
  621. I don’t even know how to speak up for myself, because I don’t really have a father who would give me the confidence or advice. And if you’re always the new kid, you never get a chance to adapt, so your confidence is just zilch.
  622. I don’t even know how to speak up for myself, because I don’t really have a father who would give me the confidence or advice.
  623. I don’t even know what words to use to talk about the music industry anymore. But the business has changed a lot – the methods of releasing music.
  624. I don’t even know where to start in terms of people having such an issue about color, especially being dark. I just think on different levels it’s ignorance; it’s no belief, no confidence, it’s insecurity, so you want to inflict it on somebody else.
  625. I don’t even like showing my stuff to publishers and editors much.
  626. I don’t even really like rap music.
  627. I don’t even really see sit-ins and marches as passive. I see them as quite assertive. I see those as emotionally aggressive tactics. I see people putting their lives on the line and being bold and brave.
  628. I don’t even remember the last time I bought an album, honestly.
  629. I don’t ever give my opinion. Opinions I have about anything are in my personal life.
  630. I don’t ever have the pressure of making a hit, because I’ve never had a hit song, per se. The closest thing to a hit song was ‘Shiraz,’ and it’s not your prototypical hit song, with a catchy hook and all this other stuff.
  631. I don’t ever remember a single day of hopelessness. I knew from the history of the labor movement, especially of the black people, that it was an undertaking of great trial. That, live or die, I had to stick with it, and we had to win.
  632. I don’t ever take credit for discovering anybody, except for McLovin on ‘Superbad’.
  633. I don’t ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing ‘cos that’s just… that’s just telling yourself a lie.
  634. I don’t ever want to stop learning. And I really want to learn French fluently. It would be great to go and live in France.
  635. I don’t expect people to agree with all my votes.
  636. I don’t fear anybody… at all.
  637. I don’t fear death; it’s re-incarnation I dread.
  638. I don’t feel at home in New Orleans. I don’t feel at home in Austin or L.A. And I just felt immediately at home in northern Australia.
  639. I don’t feel bitterness, I don’t feel anger towards anybody. Fighting is never emotional to me.
  640. I don’t feel closeted.
  641. I don’t feel despair because I am able to make the films I want to make, and that gives me hope.
  642. I don’t feel I made any sacrifices at all. I’m doing my best to juggle.
  643. I don’t feel I’m a compulsive person. I multitask. I’m really well-organised, and I have lots of people to help me.
  644. I don’t feel I’ve had a decent critic ever on the East coast.
  645. I don’t feel like I have to dress up to go to the deli.
  646. I don’t feel much pressure to fit in. I never have. I’ve always just wanted to do my thing. I have really good friends and good family, and if I don’t fit in somewhere else, I fit in at home.
  647. I don’t feel no type of way. I just understand that He helped me accomplish a lot of things in the NBA. I’ve done so many things that people thought that I couldn’t do.
  648. I don’t feel one’s personal medical condition is everybody’s business. It just isn’t something you advertise, and it’s not open to discussion.
  649. I don’t feel pressure in a negative way. I like pressure. I feel excitement and calm at the same time. No pressure, no diamonds. I want pressure: pressure creates drama, creates emotion.
  650. I don’t feel that emotion is a good thing to have in combat. You must be cold.
  651. I don’t feel there are enough women artists out there who are saying anything of tremendous relevance.
  652. I don’t fight. I don’t believe in it.
  653. I don’t fight in chase of an individual. I hear this sometimes where fighters work their whole careers to reach a matchup with a certain individual. I do not think in that way.
  654. I don’t find these technical things like flowers and chocolates romantic at all. I think Valentine’s Day makes no sense.
  655. I don’t gamble, because winning a hundred dollars doesn’t give me great pleasure. But losing a hundred dollars pisses me off.
  656. I don’t generally read a lot of fiction.
  657. I don’t generally read reviews.
  658. I don’t get acting jobs because of my looks.
  659. I don’t get grumpy at a ‘Strictly’ level, you understand. We’re just making a television show – the person I’m dancing with can’t dance; they’re doing their best, and we’re not going to win the World Championships.
  660. I don’t get stressed out.
  661. I don’t get to cook in my own restaurant.
  662. I don’t give a damn for a man that can only spell a word one way.
  663. I don’t go clubing. So, I don’t smoke or drink.
  664. I don’t go for people who lead full and satisfying lives.
  665. I don’t go out to parties because I’d look terrible in pictures. My escape is television – it’s like meditation to me.
  666. I don’t go to enough movies.
  667. I don’t hate anyone.
  668. I don’t hate being compared with female musicians. I don’t mind that at all. I have no problem with seeing connections between women’s work.
  669. I don’t hate Dane Cook, but I am trying to go after people I think are capable of more.
  670. I don’t hate Trump, but he’s not somebody I admire.
  671. I don’t hate women – they just sometimes make me mad.
  672. I don’t have a career. I have a life.
  673. I dont have a crush on anyone easily.
  674. I don’t have a great instrument. I don’t have the kind of ungodly control over my voice and body that great actors have. And I’ve worked with enough great actors to know that I’m not one.
  675. I don’t have a magic formula for prioritizing the world’s problems.
  676. I don’t have a need for speed. I’m not that guy.
  677. I don’t have a preferred religion – I’d have to do research. I was born a Christian, but as I’ve grown into my own man, I don’t attach myself to a religion – 100 per cent, I have faith. Then it’s locking into what suits me.
  678. I don’t have a problem believing in God and Jesus. But in Genesis one has to wonder about these sentences that just go on and end without finishing. The thought is unfinished. Where did Adam go? What is he doing? Hello? There has to be some pages missing.
  679. I don’t have a problem with ageing – in fact, I embrace that aspect of it. And am able to and obviously am going to be able to quite easily… it doesn’t faze me at all.
  680. I don’t have a problem with how people receive the music. I feel like it’s for everybody.
  681. I don’t have a problem with Werner Herzog.
  682. I don’t have a specific style. My style is unorthodox; that is my style. So you can’t really place me here, place me there, because my style is just to be anywhere, you know what I’m saying?
  683. I don’t have a sprinter’s body.
  684. I don’t have a strict diet; I keep it simple. I try to eat fish, meat, veg and carbs – potatoes and rice – but I’ll try and pack it in because as I’m burning so much energy. I have to see food as an energy source.
  685. I don’t have a superpower.
  686. I don’t have a ton of friends, but the friends I have are great ones. I don’t have huge family, but the family I have is a great one.
  687. I don’t have a vast longing for the stage.
  688. I don’t have an attitude problem: you have a perception problem!
  689. I don’t have an extraordinary degree of self-confidence, but I know the gift I have been given from God and I try to share it with as many people as possible. Having a great voice is not a merit. I don’t think it is a merit.
  690. I don’t have an extraordinary degree of self-confidence, but I know the gift I have been given from God, and I try to share it with as many people as possible.
  691. I don’t have any doubts either about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Perhaps some more should be added to the list, but I don’t have the slightest doubt about human rights.
  692. I don’t have any ill will or ill thought towards anybody.
  693. I don’t have any intention to be anti-gay or to persecute the gay community.
  694. I don’t have any interest to go to Israel. I don’t think I’d ever have a cause to go.
  695. I don’t have any problems with what these guys wear because they got their own style and their own originality. That’s the way it’s supposed to be, man.
  696. I don’t have any regrets. When I quit college and moved to Los Angeles to become an actress, it was so that I would not look back and have any regrets.
  697. I don’t have any secrets I need kept any more.
  698. I don’t have any sense of inhibition, so I’m able to lead my life with a lot of honesty.
  699. I don’t have any terrific self-esteem issues but I do sometimes realise I’ve been too lucky and that I’m over-praised. It makes me nervous. I have this sense of being overrated.
  700. I don’t have anything against my mom, but my family has no emotional connection to each other.
  701. I don’t have anything in particular to achieve; I don’t want to go any particular direction. I just want to take up the challenges of life as we go along.
  702. I don’t have anything to say about other people’s art and their work.
  703. I don’t have cable. I just never watched a lot of TV.
  704. I don’t have clear-cut positions. I get baffled by things. I have viewpoints. Sometimes they change.
  705. I don’t have emotional needs, only physical ones.
  706. I don’t have false teeth. Do you think I’d buy teeth like these?
  707. I don’t have freedom in the United States to go into a public school and preach the Gospel, nor is a student free in a public school to pray, or a teacher free to read the Bible publicly to the students. At the same time, we have a great degree of freedom for which I am grateful.
  708. I don’t have great running technique, but I like to run. I’ve heard from countless people that the last six miles of the marathon is all mental. But what better city to have this in than New York City where there are millions of people there supporting you?
  709. I don’t have incredible knowledge about films or of filmmaking history; I’m not that kind of person.
  710. I don’t have interest in life. Life has an interest in me.
  711. I don’t have lights, I don’t have assistants, I just go and meet somebody and take a photograph. That’s really basic, and that’s how I used to work when I was 17 or 18 in Holland.
  712. I don’t have maids or servants, and my husband and I love waking up early and going to the 24-hour supermarket when there is nobody else there.
  713. I don’t have makeup on all the time, but when I want, I have fun with my friends choosing clothes and putting nail polish on.
  714. I don’t have many deal breakers. I’ve done so much in my life, it doesn’t feel right to judge other people.
  715. I don’t have many friends, but I want to retain the ones I have.
  716. I don’t have many friends; I’m very much a loner. As a child I was very isolated, and I’ve never been really close to anyone.
  717. I don’t have many sad days.
  718. I don’t have much experience, but the few times when I would go on a date with a girl – like when I was 12 – there was a lot of sharing, and a lot of talking, and a lot of asking how I am. They thought we were dating, and I was sort of hoping to meet their brothers.
  719. I don’t have much in me left for Somalia, because the country is so broken, it’s not realistic to daydream about it.
  720. I don’t have much interest in being on a senior tour. I don’t think I retired so that I could be on tour.
  721. I don’t have much patience for people who are self-conscious about the act of eating, and it irritates me when someone denies themselves the pleasure of a bloody hunk of steak or a pungent French cheese because of some outdated nonsense about what’s appropriate or attractive.
  722. I don’t have much positive to say about motor neuron disease, but it taught me not to pity myself because others were worse off, and to get on with what I still could do. I’m happier now than before I developed the condition.
  723. I don’t have much positive to say about motor neurone disease. But it taught me not to pity myself because others were worse off, and to get on with what I could still do.
  724. I don’t have no favorite rock bands. I’m a fan of rock music, though.
  725. I don’t have one polarizing message. It is just about being consistent over the years.
  726. I don’t have one specific person that I think is the most athletic person.
  727. I don’t have people following me around, like bodyguards. I don’t know how people live like that. Maybe the young movie stars have to live like that, I don’t know. But it seems a little crazy to me. I don’t think you need all that stuff.
  728. I don’t have perfect teeth, I’m not stick thin. I want to be the person who feels great in her body and can say that she loves it and doesn’t want to change anything.
  729. I don’t have regrets. I’ve never sat here and thought, ‘Gee, if only I’d done ‘The Man Who Came to Dinner’ on Broadway, I would have been happier.’
  730. I don’t have stylistic loyalty. That’s why people perceive me changing all the time. But there is a real continuity in my subject matter. As an artist of artifice, I do believe I have more integrity than any one of my contemporaries.
  731. I don’t have the luxury of making clothes just to make an effect. It can’t be something totally frivolous, because my distributors have to have a successful season, too.
  732. I don’t have the time to curl up on my couch with a good book.
  733. I don’t have these crazy deadlines. I don’t have this, ‘Oh it’s got to be out tomorrow.’ I don’t like working like that.
  734. I don’t have this feeling that 70 is really old.
  735. I don’t have time to stand around and listen to an 11-minute song.
  736. I don’t have to act for work anymore; I can act for passion. That’s freeing, but it’s also a prison of its own. When you can do anything you want, you’re really responsible to do something great. And that’s scary.
  737. I don’t have to be what you want me to be.
  738. I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.
  739. I don’t have to have faith, I have experience.
  740. I don’t have to listen to the Gospel on Sunday to know the stories of the New Testament. They inform so much of what I write that they’re practically like a news scrim that goes through my brain 24/7.
  741. I don’t have to see a murder in order to condemn murder.
  742. I don’t have very sophisticated taste in music. I listen to a lot of folk music. I like reggae.
  743. I don’t hide anything about myself, so I don’t find it difficult to talk about things that happen in my life… But at the same time, I don’t like putting myself out there too much. That’s how I am.
  744. I don’t inflict horrors on readers. In my research, I’ve uncovered truly terrible documentations of cruelty and torture, but I leave that offstage. I always pull back and let the reader imagine the details. We all know to one degree or another the horrors of war.
  745. I don’t intend to stop making music.
  746. I don’t just act, and that’s really important to me. I don’t want to just be an actor forever.
  747. I don’t just want my books to be about the ’30s and ’40s. I want them to read as if they had been written then. I think of them as ’40s novels, written in the conservative narrative past.
  748. I don’t kiss nobody’s butt.
  749. I don’t know about changing my perspective, because motherhood is such a glorious blessing and I am very thankful for that. It’s such a beautiful experience. I so strongly recommend it. It’s bliss, love and fulfillment of another level.
  750. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t overcooked at least one turkey, myself included. It’s easy to do.
  751. I don’t know anything about computers.
  752. I don’t know anything about music. In my line you don’t have to.
  753. I don’t know driving in another way which isn’t risky. Each one has to improve himself. Each driver has its limit. My limit is a little bit further than other’s.
  754. I don’t know how I got such an image, but I am not a Casanova. It’s an image that I wouldn’t have liked for myself.
  755. I don’t know how many of you have been to New York, but if a building is two blocks away from anything, you can’t see it.
  756. I don’t know how much longer I’ll be around. I’ll probably be writing when the Lord says, ‘Maya, , it’s time.’
  757. I don’t know how old my phone is, but it was only $10. It is a nice subconscious way of not having the Internet at your fingertips… e-mail, Twitter or Facebook.
  758. I don’t know how others think about me, but if I have to walk the streets, I will, and if I need to stand in a queue at the airport, that’s OK.
  759. I don’t know how to live good. I only know how to suffer.
  760. I don’t know how to measure success. I have been fortunate that I got exciting films to do and work with talented directors who brought out the best in me.
  761. I don’t know how to talk to people I don’t know.
  762. I don’t know how to write love letters.
  763. I don’t know how, where, and why the idea for ‘Defending Your Life’ began; the idea had been bouncing around for a while. Stories like that sort of have to bounce. They don’t come out of nowhere. I went through my own period of life with sort of everything turning upside down, and wondering, ‘Why is it this way?’
  764. I don’t know how you can justify leaving any engagement behind in the social Web of 2011.
  765. I don’t know, I feel desperate when I sing. And I look desperate – it feels like I’m singing for my life, which makes me twitch, if that makes sense.
  766. I don’t know, I feel like as time has gone on, hip-hop has become really redundant and repetitive.
  767. I don’t know; I guess they’ll never make another ‘Nemo.’ I see they’re making another ‘Monsters, Inc.’ I had a wonderful idea for them. I swear to God, I think there could be a great sequel to ‘Nemo’ where the fish never will leave home. He just won’t leave. ‘Getting Rid of Nemo.’ Right, ‘You’re 30 years old! Get out of here!’
  768. I don’t know, I’d love to try some theater. That’s my other thing. I’d love to do some Shakespeare.
  769. I don’t know if he throws a spitball but he sure spits on the ball.
  770. I don’t know if high society is different in other cities, but in Hollywood, important people can’t stand to be invited someplace that isn’t full of other important people. They don’t mind a few unfamous people being present because they make good listeners.
  771. I don’t know if I ever feel totally great about a record when I put it out. With every record that I put out, someone has literally got to come pry it from me because when I listen to my own music, I just hear flaws in it.
  772. I don’t know if I found soccer or if soccer found me. Especially because when I was younger, I was doing it, in a lot of ways, because I wanted the attention of my mom and dad.
  773. I don’t know if I have a career or not, or where it ends or it begins. I have been working, doing what I do for a long time. But my creative process has always been so tortuous.
  774. I don’t know if I make the best gay films.
  775. I don’t know if it’s possible to live the rock ‘n roll lifestyle and still be romantic.
  776. I don’t know if I’ve ever cared much what others think.
  777. I don’t know if One Direction will stand the test of time. I have a niece who goes crazy for them. But the only way to judge art is to wait and see if it becomes evergreen. This takes a bit of time. Adele is a very good musician and I’d like to sing with her. But, again, time will tell if her music will become evergreen.
  778. I don’t know if there are artists out there who love their own records. I haven’t met any, and I’m kind of extreme in the other direction, but therein lies the impetus to keep working and keep making new songs and new records.
  779. I don’t know if those things work, where you do, like, this crash diet or crash starvation. It’s just not something I’ve ever been into.
  780. I don’t know many artists who’ve come out of Beverly Hills, y’know? You need that struggle.
  781. I don’t know much about politics, and I don’t want to know. That’s why I rarely involve myself in politics.
  782. I don’t know much about writing a show or being a show-runner on a show, but I can only imagine that when you first cast a show and you first do a pilot, there are so many components that you’re throwing into the mix and you’re not sure how they’re going to develop.
  783. I don’t know people who don’t say, boy the government is working better now.
  784. I don’t know that anyone comes from a truly functional family.
  785. I don’t know that I appreciate things more because of how I grew up, but I am very realistic with what I expect out of people and what they expect out of me.
  786. I don’t know that I’ll ever be the guy who needs to go to a tournament to be seen and to spectate. I feel like I can accomplish spectating from home.
  787. I don’t know that I’ve ever been someone who’s interested in existing on tour. I have a lot of interests and a lot of other things that excite me.
  788. I don’t know that there is much the United States can do except work with the international community.
  789. I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
  790. I don’t know what acting is, but I enjoy it.
  791. I don’t know what better teenage life you could get than going around the world doing what you love to do.
  792. I don’t know what drives me to succeed.
  793. I don’t know what DVD commentaries are about. I’d like to strangle the person who came up with that concept.
  794. I don’t know what else you could do that is more vulnerable – maybe dancing – than singing.
  795. I don’t know what happens to you after you die. I’m not banking on there being, like, a heaven.
  796. I don’t know what I’m proudest of. The fact that my kids still talk to me.
  797. 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. I don’t speak for such huge and diverse groups. What I’ve tried to do, what I’ve been fortunate to do, is to live my live and create my life as I’ve wanted to create it.
  798. I don’t know what metalcore is. I know what rock n’ roll is… It’s not rocket science.
  799. I don’t know what really makes a great musical or not. In the end, you write it, and you write it because you want to write it.
  800. I don’t know what Tracy Morgan does onstage, but I can assure you, it’s no act.
  801. I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.
  802. I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.
  803. I don’t know where people think I’m from, but I’m from Chicago. It’s really just that. People wanna romanticize it and say, ‘There’s two sides to it, and it’s a beautiful love/hate story of violence and music.’ But it’s really just a very scummy place where people don’t have respect for other people’s lives.
  804. I don’t know where the stock market is going, but I will say this, that if it continues higher, this will do more to stimulate the economy than anything we’ve been talking about today or anything anybody else was talking about.
  805. I don’t know whether endurance sports attract obsessional people, or training for endurance sports makes people obsessional… it’s the chicken and the egg.
  806. I don’t know whether these people are going to find themselves, but as they live their lives they have no choice but to face up to the image others have of them. They’re forced to look at themselves in a mirror, and they often manage to glimpse something of themselves.
  807. I don’t know which will go first – rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity.
  808. I don’t know who I touch and who I don’t. I work hard trying to make people laugh. I try to do the kind of stuff that made me laugh growing up. I don’t have any secrets. I don’t know the reasons I’ve been so well received.
  809. I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.
  810. I don’t know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.
  811. I don’t know why they gave me a knighthood – though it’s very nice of them – but I only ever use the title in the U.S. The Americans insist on it and get offended if I don’t.
  812. I don’t know why we have to put things in boxes of superlatives. That isolates them. Life is fluid, and the minute you start trying to put a line around something, it will deceive you and go away.
  813. I don’t know why women want any of the things men have when one of the things that women have is men.
  814. I don’t lead a Hollywood lifestyle.
  815. I don’t let anyone’s insecurities, emotions, or opinions bother me. I know that if I am happy, that’s all that matters to me.
  816. I don’t let myself ‘surf’ on the Web, or I would probably drown.
  817. I don’t let people use me. That’s why I like a small number of people in my life. The more people in my life, the more complex it becomes, so I just try to keep it at a minimum.
  818. I don’t like asking for an autograph, but I would like to take a picture with Jessica Simpson because I love her style!
  819. I don’t like being a celebrity.
  820. I don’t like being called ‘macho.’ Macho basically means stupid and a real Italian man is not macho, he’s smart. That’s smart in both senses: elegant and clever.
  821. I don’t like being disappointed by somebody I trust. Fortunately, it rarely happens.
  822. I don’t like candy bars. I eat the big rectangular bars. You know – anything between 85 and 50 percent cocoa.
  823. I don’t like crying. I’m a country boy, and we’re the product of our upbringing. As a boy, I was told that men don’t cry.
  824. I don’t like docudramas. Documentaries should not go together with fiction, or half-fiction or quarter-fiction. The two should not go together. They cannot mix.
  825. I don’t like DVD extras. No. Especially when they do things like put out alternative endings? I find all of that a little bizarre, because there should only be one ending. I don’t like to be told, ‘Oh, we could have had it this way,’ for the director’s cut.
  826. I don’t like fast editing.
  827. I don’t like food that’s too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I’d buy a painting.
  828. I don’t like formal gardens. I like wild nature. It’s just the wilderness instinct in me, I guess.
  829. I don’t like freeloaders; I don’t like people who are negative.
  830. I don’t like going to the gym.
  831. I don’t like gurus. I don’t like people who ask you to follow or believe. I like people who ask you to think independently.
  832. I don’t like improvising on camera, particularly, but very often, a scene will not be working, and you rehearse it once or twice, and you realize something’s missing. So I’ll play with it until it makes sense.
  833. I don’t like it when people don’t know the difference between ‘their’, ‘they’re’, ‘there’.
  834. I don’t like jail, they got the wrong kind of bars in there.
  835. I don’t like labels. I think they conceal more than they reveal, sort of like a bikini.
  836. I don’t like looking at myself. I have such bad body dysmorphia.
  837. I don’t like losers.
  838. I don’t like losing but I’ve mellowed. I maybe have a short fuse but it goes away quicker now.
  839. I don’t like new cars; I’m into vintage cars – there’s a Jaguar E-Type in the ‘Goldie’ video.
  840. I don’t like paying 50 per cent of tax.
  841. I don’t like rats, but there’s not much else I don’t like. The problem with rats is they have no fear of human beings, they’re loaded with foul diseases, they would run the place given half the chance, and I’ve had them leap out of a lavatory while I’ve been sitting on it.
  842. I don’t like talking about my relationships.
  843. I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.
  844. I don’t like the clean-shaven boy with the necktie and the good job. I like desperate men, men with broken teeth and broken minds and broken ways. They interest me. They are full of surprises and explosions.
  845. I don’t like the ironic tone that our pop culture, in the world, has taken. Everything is ‘ironic.’ Everything is ‘cool.’
  846. I don’t like the Samba; it’s nonsense. With a lot of these Latin dances I can’t really understand what they’re all about. I like the Rumba and the Paso Doble but the others I could take or leave.
  847. I don’t like them fellas who drive in two runs and let in three.
  848. I don’t like things held up before me that I cannot have.
  849. I don’t like this young crudeness now which is supposed to be comedy on Friday nights.
  850. I don’t like Thomas Edison. I’m a fan of Nicolai Tesla.
  851. I don’t like to commit myself about heaven and hell – you see, I have friends in both places.
  852. I don’t like to compare myself with anybody.
  853. I don’t like to deal with studios.
  854. I don’t like to get involved in things that I am not familiar with. I’m kind of a hands-on type of person.
  855. I don’t like to give advice. I like to give people information because everyone’s life is different, and everyone’s journey is different.
  856. I don’t like to lay down on my food – it’s not good for you. I like to take a walk, then meditate and read the Bible.I don’t like to lay down on my food – it’s not good for you. I like to take a walk, then meditate and read the Bible.
  857. I don’t like to look typical.
  858. I don’t like to over-intellectualize scenes that are working. I tend to think when you do that you may lose it.
  859. I don’t like to play characters that are too perfect.
  860. I don’t like to practice; I like spontaneity. When I don’t play guitar for a week and I pick it up again, I play better.
  861. I don’t like to read things that people write about me. I’d rather read what kids have to say about me because it’s not their profession to do that.
  862. I don’t like to see a president who is just out campaigning all year long or for the last four years. I’d like to see somebody who’s going in the office. In fact, I’d like to not see them because that way you’d be sure that they’d be working.
  863. I don’t like to see animals in pain. That was very uncomfortable to me. I don’t like factory farming. I’m not an advocate for the meat industry.
  864. I don’t like to talk about my personal life, so I will not talk about others. I don’t give advice. I give advice to only my mother, father, and brother on health.
  865. I don’t like to write like God. It is only because you never do it, though, that the critics think you can’t do it.
  866. I don’t like typing messages on my phone. Some people get used to it.
  867. I don’t like when people seem to put every single thing on and just walk up and down outside waiting to be photographed. I think that’s a bit lame.
  868. I don’t listen to a lot of new stuff. I just like the old stuff. It’s all quite dramatic and atmospheric. You’d have an entire story in song. I never listen to, like, white music – I couldn’t sing you a Zeppelin or Floyd song.
  869. I don’t live in France; I live in myself.
  870. I don’t live in L.A. on purpose because I don’t wanna be immersed in that. I have to have a real life, with real people, in order to inform what I’m doing; otherwise, it just becomes the snake eating its own tail. Vampirism.
  871. I don’t look at a man who’s expert in one area as a specialist. I look at him as a rookie in ten other areas.
  872. I don’t look at film that closely about my mechanics of where’s my elbow at.
  873. I don’t look at myself as a commodity, but I’m sure a lot of people have.
  874. I don’t look at our society today too much. My focus is still in the past, and part of the reason is because what I do – the wellspring of art, or what I do – l get from the blues. So I listen to the music of a particular period that I’m working on, and I think inside the music is clues to what is happening with the people.
  875. I don’t look like my high school self anymore. I feel like I look more like an adult now.
  876. I don’t look to a man to get pride in myself. It’s not about having a black president, it’s about having a good president, and I think that’s the most important thing.
  877. I don’t make deals for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it.
  878. I don’t make enemies, it’s just I’m not afraid to speak my mind, which can sometimes mean people don’t like what I am saying.
  879. I don’t make music for eyes. I make music for ears.
  880. I don’t make people bend over backwards, and I don’t like that in people. I am definitely no diva.
  881. I don’t measure my success anymore by the Grammys. I can’t because I’ll just end up crushed.
  882. I don’t mind being 65, but nobody is gonna tell me to come in at 5:30 to have the early bird special.
  883. I don’t mind being a Disney girl.
  884. I don’t mind how good or bad my partner is, as long as we have a lovely time.
  885. I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it.
  886. I don’t mind making jokes, but I don’t want to look like one.
  887. I don’t mind sitting at home for six months if there’s no film that I want to do.
  888. I don’t mind telling a dark side.
  889. I don’t mind watching plays once in a while, but as long as I don’t have to be in them.
  890. I don’t miss directing at all, and I don’t miss screenwriting either because somebody’s always telling you to do something different.
  891. I don’t necessarily go to church every week, but I am a Christian, and I believe in God and Jesus Christ.
  892. I don’t necessarily think fighters should fight killers every time, but at some point in time, fighters should be fighting the best in their division, period.
  893. I don’t necessarily want my physician making all my decisions.
  894. I don’t need a successor, only willing hands to accept the torch for a new generation.
  895. I don’t need bodyguards. I’m from the South Bronx.
  896. I don’t need to be married to Georgia O’Keeffe or Lillian Hellman, but I like being with a woman I can look up to.
  897. I don’t need your attitude, I have one of my own!
  898. I don’t normally make documentaries. I’m a drama director. I’ve made a few short docs, but I don’t like talking heads or ‘voice of God’ narrators.
  899. I don’t normally vote. I’m lazy and I never bought into the ‘Every vote counts.’
  900. I don’t only long for the thrill of being in the middle of a war, I must understand it; I must make other people understand.
  901. I don’t only write about English literature; I also write about chaos theory and… ants. I can understand ants.
  902. I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.
  903. I don’t owe any explanations for anybody I’m fighting.
  904. I don’t paint butter dishes, doilies, or hummingbirds in my garden. It’s more raw, I suppose. But it always creates a reaction.
  905. I don’t paint the town red. But when I do go out, people always want to touch my hair. It happens every time.
  906. I don’t pass judgment on anybody, but personally, I prefer a more natural look. I think it’s helping my longevity in my career because I’m playing my age.
  907. I don’t pay attention to stats or anything like that. I just pay attention to how I play and the intensity that I play with.
  908. I don’t pay attention to the number of birthdays. It’s weird when I say I’m 53. It just is crazy that I’m 53. I think I’m very immature. I feel like a kid. That’s why my back goes out all the time, because I completely forget I can’t do certain things anymore – like doing the plank for 10 minutes.
  909. I don’t pick subjects as much as they pick me.
  910. I don’t pick up my work at all. If it’s something that’s still in progress and I have the chance to make some edits on the material or think about the order, little things like that, I’ll keep those stories at hand and go through them. But once it exists as the book, it’s locked away in a vault, and I kind of put it behind me.
  911. I don’t pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being.
  912. I don’t play any tournaments to come second best.
  913. I don’t play for job security.
  914. I don’t practice or write stuff down – everything I do onstage was just made up before I went on.
  915. I don’t pretend we have all the answers. But the questions are certainly worth thinking about.
  916. I don’t profess to be Luciano Pavarotti, but I can hold a tune.
  917. I don’t profess to have music as my big wheel and there are a number of other things as important to me apart from music. Theatre and mime, for instance.
  918. I don’t put people down. I build people up. That’s how I always wanna be looked at.
  919. I don’t put the focus on things that don’t matter.
  920. I don’t race cars.
  921. I don’t read the magazines that make things up about people. I know what the truth is. I don’t sort of indulge in my own fodder. I don’t really care what they write about me.
  922. I don’t really believe in rules, but I do like old-fashioned dating where you don’t call the guy until he calls you. I don’t think it’s like he’s got to do this and that’s the rule.
  923. I don’t really buy designer stuff. I have a few nice things, but I don’t really have the occasion to wear couture too often.
  924. I don’t really care too much about what people who don’t care about me say about me, but a lot of times, you know, I get tired of defending myself.
  925. I don’t really care very much if I don’t think that the critics really understand music.
  926. I don’t really care where I go because wherever I go, they’re going to get a very talented, driven guy that’s going to get every inch of his potential out, max everything I have in my body out.
  927. I don’t really dance. I don’t drink or smoke. Being at parties is very awkward.
  928. I don’t really differentiate between different genres: if there’s a good part going, I’ll go after it, and it’s preferable to me if it’s something I haven’t done before.
  929. I don’t really do playlists. I don’t know how to make a playlist, honestly.
  930. I don’t really follow market research. In the end, I respond to my own instincts.
  931. I don’t really get into a big intellectual analysis of why I am going to do a certain script or not.
  932. I don’t really have a choice. I’m getting older.
  933. I don’t really have a gimmick or a ‘thing.’ I’m one of the few artists who gets to be himself every day.
  934. I don’t really have any interest in allowing other people’s kind of idiotic, unnecessary, either bigotry or hatred or whatever derision they have for me, I don’t allow for it to really bother me, because I don’t need it.
  935. I don’t really have control over my direct impression on people anymore. I used to be the person putting my CD in people’s hands. But I’m kind of a mainstream artist now. Not by choice.
  936. I don’t really have foresight as an actor as far as career trajectory – I just stick to no-brainer situations.
  937. I don’t really have many regrets. I did miss a lot of the events in the days leading up to my sister’s wedding because I was at a U17 camp. There were moments like that growing up when I felt like I focused too much on soccer. But that’s probably the reason I am where I am today.
  938. I don’t really have studios. I wander around around people’s attics, out in fields, in cellars, anyplace I find that invites me.
  939. I don’t really know what it is about vampires that makes them such a powerful symbol, metaphor, whatever in people’s consciousness. But I do know they’re tremendously powerful. I mean, there’s a vampire on ‘Sesame Street.’ And Count Chocula. I don’t know why it’s so powerful.
  940. I don’t really like meetings, I like recording and performing music. I need to set myself up for when the time does come that I need better distribution or just a bigger team behind me.
  941. I don’t really like to call myself a brand, and I don’t like to think of myself as a brand. I’m a singer, a songwriter, a musician and a performer. And an actress, and all the other things that I do. When you add it all together, some might call it a brand, but that’s not my focus.
  942. I don’t really look at myself as the kind of person who craves attention, but I’ve never been to therapy so there’s probably a lot of stuff about myself that I don’t know.
  943. I don’t really need to stand out, there’s room for everyone. Although I haven’t built a niche yet, I’m just writing love songs.
  944. I don’t really rate press conferences. It’s not as though I leave the room fist-pumping my way down the corridor after a good one.
  945. I don’t really read as much as I used to. A lot of what I was looking for as an escape I find in writing. And the other thing is that I don’t want to get into someone else’s language when I’m working.
  946. I don’t really read stuff on myself. I like to just kind of stay away… I don’t get too involved in that.
  947. I don’t really rely on watching video monitors. They put you at a certain distance from your actors, and it makes me feel less a part of what’s really happening in the scene.
  948. I don’t really think I got the full high school experience, only because when I got to high school for the first year, it was grades 9-10. We didn’t have older grades. But besides that, it was normal. It was a regular public school. We didn’t have much going on. It wasn’t too crazy.
  949. I don’t really think that very much is interesting about the superhero as an archetype.
  950. I don’t really troll the Internet; I’m not young enough.
  951. I don’t really worry about the size of the part much any more. It’s nice to have more time to work on the character, and to have big scenes to play. But if there’s something playable there, and if it’s interesting to do, then that’s nice.
  952. I don’t really worry what outside groups who score votes think. My job is to represent the people.
  953. I don’t really write jokes down. I tend to have a premise that I work out and test on stage.
  954. I don’t really write plots. I use history as the engine that drives everything.
  955. I don’t regret any past. I am not there. I am not sorry not to make pictures, because I know one day I will do it. I intend to live 150 years.
  956. I don’t regret anything.
  957. I don’t rely on my figure to sell records.
  958. I don’t remember my dreams too much. I hardly have ever gotten ideas from nighttime dreams. But I love daydreaming and dream logic and the way dreams go.
  959. I don’t run a car, have never run a car. I could say that this is because I have this extremely tender environmentalist conscience, but the fact is I hate driving.
  960. I don’t say I was the first, because, who knows, maybe there was a guy out in Minnesota doing it before me.
  961. I don’t see a difference between playing a performance capture role and a live action role, they’re just characters to me at the end of the day and I’m an actor who wants to explore those characters in fantastically written scripts. The only caveat is a good story is a good character.
  962. I don’t see any boundaries between any of the art forms. I think they all inter-relate completely.
  963. I don’t see any situation where Israel will not be sitting on the Golan Heights.
  964. I don’t see Arijit Singh as a competition at all. That’s because we both have a very different style of singing. In fact, I really appreciate what he’s been able to bring to the playback singing industry.
  965. I don’t see many explosions or ten-car crashes in the course of my life, so I don’t put them into my movies. I would love to live in a society where ‘My Dinner with Andre’ made $100,000,000. Then I would be in the mainstream. I could do that stuff easier than I could do ‘Meatballs.’
  966. I don’t see much comedy in the Bible, where people are writing about funny people. It’s not there.
  967. I don’t see myself as a full-time broadcaster. I’ve done some of it, and I enjoy it, but I don’t think I should try to make a career out of it.
  968. I don’t see myself as a moviemaker only, you know? When I can do a picture, I do. But I don’t work like a business, in pictures. I am not obliged to make one picture after the other in order to live.
  969. I don’t see myself as beautiful, because I can see a lot of flaws. People have really odd opinions. They tell me I’m skinny, as if that’s supposed to make me happy.
  970. I don’t see myself as competing with other actresses. I mean, I went through a time when I was in New York, and I was going to lots of auditions and trying to get parts, but even then, you’re not really competing with the other actresses. There is a competition going on, but it’s not like something you can win in that way.
  971. I don’t see myself as having to compete with younger actresses; I don’t feel that.
  972. I don’t see myself doing television, but I do see myself directing.
  973. I don’t see the point of doing an interview unless you’re going to share the things you learn in life and the mistakes you make. So to admit that I’m extremely human and have done some dark things I don’t think makes me unusual or unusually dark. I think it actually is the right thing to do, and I’d like to think it’s the nice thing to do.
  974. I don’t see this planet being… they’re talking about how they’re turning around the environmental problems here, but I think it’s already too late.
  975. I don’t see why, if you look at how the Australian culture and psyche is, that we can’t be amongst the most generous, from the grassroots up, nations in the world.
  976. I don’t sense that I am someone’s hero, though I’m happy when people like my work. I’ve learned how to be gracious about it, but I try to let it go by. I’ve seen how, if people start taking on those accolades, it can ruin them completely.
  977. I don’t set goals. Competing with a number in your head can be limiting, and I don’t know what my capabilities are yet.
  978. I don’t show just anyone how to crust a sea bass. That’s sacred information.
  979. I don’t sleep well. I’m a very nervous – by my nature – anxious, almost paranoid person and reporter.
  980. I don’t snack. I don’t generally eat sweets or drink soda. I never eat between meals or even before big ones.
  981. I don’t spend any time whatsoever thinking about what might have been.
  982. I don’t spend much time looking back at what happened. I do remember it, but I don’t see any purpose of wanting to look back.
  983. I don’t spend my hours worrying how to slip a social message into my act.
  984. I don’t spend my time pontificating about high-concept things; I spend my time solving engineering and manufacturing problems.
  985. I don’t stand for the black man’s side, I don’ t stand for the white man’s side. I stand for God’s side.
  986. I don’t start with the characters. I start with the series of events that will provide the conflict and how it can be resolved. Characters are incidental.
  987. I don’t steer clear of genres. I simply haven’t steered myself toward some of them.
  988. I don’t suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
  989. I don’t suffer of anything that I’ve lost.
  990. I don’t take any money from my ministry. I’m not on salary. My husband supports me.
  991. I don’t take myself as seriously as some people think, and I’d hate anyone to think I was preaching. That’s the last thing I want.
  992. I don’t take the movies seriously, and anyone who does is in for a headache.
  993. I don’t talk about my past; people ask me about it. I’ve done things I’m ashamed of, but one thing I can honestly say is that things I’ve done that I regret, I’ve never done twice. I work really hard at that.
  994. I don’t think a lot of artists have the freedom that I have when it comes to dressing in general.
  995. I don’t think about my previous success. I’m happy that the work I’ve done has been very successful.
  996. I don’t think about tennis 24/7. I enjoy time on the lake at my Florida home and just being lazy on the sofa.
  997. I don’t think about that. I wasn’t a kid growing up saying one day I’ll get an Oscar and make a speech. That wasn’t on my mind. So what I do is the best work I can do.
  998. I don’t think acting is addictive. If I stopped acting tomorrow, I really wouldn’t care. If you told me that I would have to sell real estate in New York City to look after my family, that would be fine with me.
  999. I don’t think actors should ever expect to get a role, because the disappointment is too great. You’ve got to think of things as an opportunity. An audition’s an opportunity to have an audience.
  1000. I don’t think Albert Einstein could have devised an equation to guide the leader of the free world during the wildly tumultuous post-9/11 realities without a modicum of help from the opposition party and the vast majority of the print and electronic media.
