  1. I think it is very important to learn to say ‘No.’ I think it is sometimes important for brands or the creative director to learn to say, ‘This might be on trend, but it is not right for us.’
  2. I think it is very possible that my deeper character is not very English.
  3. I think it makes people in the Pentagon kind of nervous to know that chemical agents and environmental factors could cause so much damage in terms of what may happen in the future.
  4. I think it makes sense to believe in God, but exactly what decision in your life you make differently because of it, I don’t know.
  5. I think it matters whether someone has a good heart.
  6. I think it must be very hard to be one of the new young writers who are urged to put themselves forward when it may be the last thing on earth they’d be good at.
  7. I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.
  8. I think it quite likely that we are the only civilization within several hundred light years; otherwise we would have heard radio waves.
  9. I think it was the ability of the theater to communicate ideas and extol virtues that drew me to it. And also, I was, and remain, fascinated by the idea of an audience as a community of people who gather willingly to bear witness.
  10. I think it was when I ran into Kerouac and Burroughs – when I was 17 – that I realized I was talking through an empty skull… I wasn’t thinking my own thoughts or saying my own thoughts.
  11. I think it would be interesting if old people got anti-Alzheimer’s disease where they slowly began to recover other people’s lost memories.
  12. I think it would be over-exaggeration to think that there are millions of viruses ready to jump on us and bring us back to the 14th century. That would be looking over a ledge that isn’t there.
  13. I think it would be ridiculous to work with Tom Hardy. I hear some crazy things about him, and he’s also really good.
  14. I think it would be terrific if everybody was alike.
  15. I think it’s a common misconception in the civilian community that the military community is filled with just drills and discipline and pain. They forget that these are humans who are in an abnormal situation.
  16. I think it’s a good thing that there are bloggers out there watching very closely and holding people accountable. Everyone in the news should be able to hold up to that kind of scrutiny. I’m for as much transparency in the newsgathering process as possible.
  17. I think it’s a mistake to ever look for hope outside of one’s self.
  18. I think it’s almost impossible for any expert to predict for the rapid changes we see in the Middle East. They are rapid and they will continue for quite a while.
  19. I think it’s always dangerous to make political arguments in a religiously ideological way. And it’s very dangerous to treat as traitors to the American nation those who think differently.
  20. I think it’s an actor’s job, if you can, to keep working and to keep using that muscle. First of all, you’ve got to pay the bills, but it also helps you develop.
  21. I think it’s an interesting thing to me, because we have this desire for everything to be explained to us. But if you go through your daily actions, very little ends up having a written-down explanation for why things happen, or why people do specific things.
  22. I think it’s an Irish thing. We don’t really care. We say it as we mean it, and you have to deal with it. The truth is the truth.
  23. I think it’s brought the world a lot closer together, and will continue to do that. There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The most corrosive piece of technology that I’ve ever seen is called television – but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent.
  24. I think it’s certainly important that we don’t have symbols in our society that are offensive to a segment and that arouse racial division.
  25. I think it’s child abuse to have someone in the public eye too young. Society basically values wealth and fame and power at the cost of well-being. In the case of a child, it’s at the cost of someone’s natural development. It’s already hard enough to develop.
  26. I think it’s cool that London Fashion Week is about young designers trying wacky things.
  27. I think it’s embarrassing for our industry that we have such low diversity across senior-level management at all of the mainstream, top-tier venture capital firms.
  28. I think it’s even harder because I think as always, Hollywood is sort of glamour central for the world, and the entire world looks to it for not only entertainment, but the whole idea of the youth factor and youth being sold to our culture via young actors and actresses.
  29. I think it’s every girl’s dream, a little bit, to be a model because it seems from the outside to be a glamorous industry and I was really into fashion, and I remember just being excited and wanting to be part of that.
  30. I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.
  31. I think it’s foolish to think that if you’ve done something for so long, you can kind of delete it out of your memory bank or delete every emotion attached to it. I knew when I retired what that meant.
  32. I think it’s good to live an artful life.
  33. I think it’s great that so many people are enjoying climbing. I’ve always loved climbing; I don’t see why other people wouldn’t enjoy it just as much. As long as everyone does their best to respect the areas in which they’re climbing, I don’t see how the growth of the sport could be a bad thing.
  34. I think it’s harder for people than it should be. But as more and more of us become carbon neutral and change the patterns in our lives to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem, we are now beginning to see the changes in policy that are needed.
  35. I think it’s healthy for a person to be nervous. It means you care – that you work hard and want to give a great performance. You just have to channel that nervous energy into the show.
  36. I think it’s huge, especially in team sports, for players to be able to rely on each other and to really trust in each other.
  37. I think it’s important for an actor to see the work they’ve done because every time you revisit a work you come up with a new way of improving it. It’s a good way to brush up your craft and your skills, so I think it’s a good thing to do, keep seeing your films.
  38. I think it’s important for people to understand that as a woman, I can only rap about the parts I have.
  39. I think it’s important for scientists to speak in their own voices and not just be mediated by journalists or others speaking for them.
  40. I think it’s important I stay connected to every part of my personality. I play basketball. I rock climb. I paint. I’m a little bit scattered, but it’s so I can convincingly play all these characters.
  41. I think it’s important to be honest with yourself about what you want and it’s important to be honest with your partner about what you need.
  42. I think it’s important to have flexibility to work wherever is best for you. I actually encourage people to work at the cafe – or from home or wherever works best for them.
  43. I think it’s important to keep things positive. Sometimes you don’t win, and that sucks, and you work on improving.
  44. I think it’s important to realize that we’re all just human. I mean, nobody is supernatural.
  45. I think it’s important to take a break, you know, from the public eye for a while, and give people a chance to miss you. I want longevity. I don’t want to get out there and run myself ragged and spread myself thin.
  46. I think it’s irresponsible when celebrities imply they’re doing it all themselves. My son has aunties and uncles around all the time, and my husband is my hero. He’s really full-on. I couldn’t do it any other way.
  47. I think it’s never too late to learn – or it’s a lesson that’s good to continue learning – that you need to treat everyone on a set with respect.
  48. I think it’s nice sometimes not to be plugged in 24/7 to email and the Internet and everything else. It’s nice to get away.
  49. I think it’s outrageous if a historian has a ‘leading thought’ because it means they will select their material according to their thesis.
  50. I think it’s real important to show style now. The majority of style right now is to act like you don’t have style at all, so most companies are getting rich off clothes that look torn, clothes that look worn.
  51. I think it’s really important for me not to forget where I came from.
  52. I think it’s scandalous that we haven’t done more to cure cancer.
  53. I think it’s shameful when you sell out. It depends what kind of artist you wanna be, but I don’t want my name anywhere near another brand.
  54. I think it’s so dope that I’m here in Chicago and contributing to the music scene that’s thriving. People are so happy Chicago’s shining that everyone is willing to say ‘I represent Chicago.’ That wasn’t always the case.
  55. I think it’s so important for girls to love themselves and to treat their bodies respectfully.
  56. I think it’s still kind of weird to memorize a line, because you’re supposed to ‘be’ this person, you know? So then its like, if I’m really this person, how can I be in the moment if I know there’s just one line I’m supposed to say? It doesn’t feel natural. I always just kind of want to say whatever comes up.
  57. I think it’s the human spirit inside of all of us that has an enormous capacity to survive.
  58. I think it’s unfair, but they have the right as fallible, screwed-up humans to be unfair; that’s the human condition.
  59. I think it’s up to the parents to discern what their child is watching on television.
  60. I think it’s very difficult, and it requires a tremendous amount of spiritual integrity and discipline, to not be a narcissist in a culture that encourages it every step of the way.
  61. I think it’s very hard in this day and age to raise little girls with morals, ethics and values, and them knowing that they are precious creations and that they are important.
  62. I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.
  63. I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better.
  64. I think it’s very important to write a demythologized woman character. My characters are flawed. They are no better than they should be.
  65. I think it’s well-known that I love all things ABC and Shonda Rhimes – I’m a huge ‘Scandal’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ fan.
  66. I think I’ve always been somebody, since the deaths of my father and brother, who was afraid to hope. So, I was more prepared for failure and for rejection than for success.
  67. I think I’ve always had a decent perspective on wins and losses on the tennis court.
  68. I think I’ve always had that bird’s-eye view of myself. I think it’s an actor trait… Sometimes it’s best just to get lost out there, but other times you have to be aware of where the light’s hitting you.
  69. I think I’ve been addicted to openness since long before my rock career. I was terrible as a teenager. I used to go out of my way to make people uncomfortable with personal details. I was always fascinated by the idea that we have these weird, random boundaries between what we do and don’t show.
  70. I think I’ve been lucky enough to have had an extended adolescence. I’m a lot like I was when I was 15.
  71. I think I’ve definitely had my rock bottom and I think that was probably right before I went into treatment where I said, ‘I definitely need help.’
  72. I think I’ve discovered the secret of life – you just hang around until you get used to it.
  73. I think I’ve got a bit more to offer than just dancing. It might just be me that thinks that, but it’s worth saying.
  74. I think I’ve got my business notions and my sense for that sort of thing from my dad. My dad never had a chance to go to school. He couldn’t read and write. But he was so smart. He was just one of those people that could just make the most of anything and everything that he had to work with.
  75. I think I’ve heard somebody say that I was a well-dressed golfer. I guess that has something to do with the fact that a lot of people who play golf don’t dress very well.
  76. I think I’ve learned not to take everything so seriously and just try to focus on the work the most.
  77. I think I’ve said I’m the luckiest actor in the world. I mean that.
  78. I think Jenny Beavan is a masterful costume designer and very deserving of the Oscar for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’
  79. I think Jerry Lee is sad. As a musician, he was far more talented than Elvis Presley. Everybody down in Memphis knows that. Elvis became a movie star because he was beautiful. Not that Elvis wasn’t talented, but Jerry Lee Lewis was incomprehensibly talented as a musician.
  80. I think Jesus is divine love manifest on Earth, as it comes through the community of Christians.
  81. I think Jesus was about bringing people together and connecting people in love, hanging out with the people who other people didn’t want to hang out with. Spending time with the worst of the worst because He knew those are the people who needed Him most.
  82. I think kids are natural actors. You watch most kids; if they don’t have a toy, they’ll pick up a stick and make a toy out of it. Kids will daydream all the time.
  83. I think kids should go to high school until they’re 30. No, really, because people are staying younger now and there’s nothing to do. If you stayed longer, then it would be really great.
  84. I think Kurosawa was one of the first storytelling geniuses who began to change the narrative structure of films.
  85. I think Lady Gaga is great and is changing pop music and bringing back a certain rock ‘n’ roll spirit, swagger to the game.
  86. I think leadership is most effective when it’s your own personality. But I feel like it’s a natural progression as a quarterback, as well.
  87. I think leadership is something you earn, more through actions than words.
  88. I think LEGOs are one of the best toys ever developed.
  89. I think Les Moonves is the most highly overrated person in television.
  90. I think life is pretty awesome.
  91. I think life on Earth must be about more than just solving problems… It’s got to be something inspiring, even if it is vicarious.
  92. I think life on the road really suits very egotistical men. It’s set up for kings.
  93. I think life without spirit is in the dark, it is absurd.
  94. I think, like most gamers, I talk a good game.
  95. I think literary theory has not been terribly good for English studies in a while. It’s not that theory isn’t interesting, but it isn’t about books, or the idiosyncrasies and complexities of putting language together.
  96. I think long term you can see Tesla establishing factories in Europe, in other parts of the U.S. and in Asia.
  97. I think love is a huge factor in fiction and in real life. Is there a risk? Always. In fiction and in life.
  98. I think Maje typifies that French vibe where it’s simple items that are very practical, very wearable but also, like, incredibly chic and expensive-looking.
  99. I think making friends is not being afraid to look stupid, because everyone wants a friend who is willing to be stupid and fun. If you try and be too cool, it only works in high school. After that, being uncool is a very cool thing to do. So just have fun, and don’t worry what other people think of you and people will want to be your friends.
  100. I think making the referee aware of a situation, there is nothing wrong with that.
  101. I think many people in my community had very different kinds of mothers: they had mothers who acquiesced in the system of male and white-supremacist domination, and my mother never did. She just could not do it. It just wasn’t in her.
  102. I think many people were surprised by the victory of the Congress, because it was really hard to see beyond the sort of haze of hatred that the Hindu nationalists had been spreading.
  103. I think marriage and family keeps being written about because that’s where we keep our reputations with ourselves – I mean, we can’t quite slip the truths we reveal about ourselves at home.
  104. I think Matt Yglesias is wrong to declare that the world of ‘This Town’ is dying, unless he thinks publicly financed elections, strict lobbying bans and Scandinavian-style wealth distribution are imminent.
  105. I think maybe people see bands and musicians as some sort of superhero unrealistic sport that happens in another dimension where it’s not real people and not real emotions. So, I grew up listening to Beatles records on my floor. That’s how I learned how to play guitar. If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be a musician.
  106. I think Michael Crawford realised, I think we all realised, once we’d gone the route of casting a very young girl, you can’t really cast a 65 year old man opposite. Slightly different resonance I think. No, we weren’t going to go there. We’d have Jack Nicholson in the lead.
  107. I think Mick Jagger would be astounded and amazed if he realized that to many people he is not a sex symbol, but a mother image.
  108. I think mistakes are the essence of science and law. It’s impossible to conceive of either scientific progress or legal progress without understanding the important role of being wrong and of mistakes.
  109. I think money is a wonderful thing because it enables you to do things. It enables you to invest in ideas that don’t have a short-term payback.
  110. I think most defense attorneys honestly believe the principle that says, ‘Better 10 guilty go free than even one possibly innocent person be convicted.’
  111. I think most of the important stuff on the Internet has been built. There will be continued innovation, for sure, but the great problems of the Internet have essentially been solved.
  112. I think most of the people, once you see a Kiss show, you kinda get spoiled because I don’t think there’s anybody out there that’s doing a bigger or a better show than us.
  113. I think most people are interested in our origins; once we understand, it might be easier to become the people we’d like to be. Or, better, become the people we think we already are.
  114. I think most players would love, at one stage in their career, to say, ‘I’ve been No. 1 in the world.’
  115. I think much has been made of this alter ego business. I mean, I actually stopped creating characters in 1975 – for albums, anyway.
  116. I think music can really affect people’s emotions and, when I am about to get into a race car, I definitely listen to music with a good beat – that’s when you’ve got the adrenalin pumping. And the time before you go into a race weekend, you have a lot of emotion and adrenalin, and a lot of focus.
  117. I think music, in my opinion, is not about motivation in the way it’s – it’s not a running base. It’s art. And my whole philosophy of music is different. It’s almost like cooking and serving to people, seeing them smile and enjoying the food, really.
  118. I think music is one of the hero/sheroes of the African-American existence.
  119. I think music is something that can, and should, be used to get you into different things because eventually what goes up must come down – we’re not going to be the number one group in the world forever – so you have to have something else to fall back on.
  120. I think music is the most phenomenal platform for intellectual thought.
  121. I think musically.
  122. I think Mustique is Duchampian – it will always provide an endless source of delight.
  123. I think my biggest musical hero growing up was probably Ian MacKaye. He set a great example for all of us local musicians. Still, to this day, I see him as the best example of a right-on musician.
  124. I think my characters with my fingers, I think my characters with my guts. But when I say I think them, that is what I do, I feel them with the sympathetic neurons and I work out with my brain what it is that I am trying to write about, or I can’t do it.
  125. I think my confidence stems from my honesty. I’m brutally honest – about everything and even myself. I tell it as I think it. I’m not politically correct. I’m definitely not diplomatic. I get bashed up for what I say, but I don’t know any other way.
  126. I think my daughters have a pretty healthy self-awareness but I can’t speak on their behalf.
  127. I think my exact comment was that if Bush won it would be a good time to leave the United States. I’m not necessarily going to leave the United States.
  128. I think my favorite, and Coppola and that whole thing. East coast Italian directors I guess.
  129. I think my first album opened a lot of doors for me to push the freedom of speech to the limit.
  130. I think my first bikini, I was four and it was polka dotted and I had a big belly and I looked dashing.
  131. I think my independence was a big help to getting Judges Roberts and Alito confirmed, and I think that’s recognized.
  132. I think my iTunes is a kind of strange and embarrassing mix of show tunes and artists that I have no perception of whether or not they’re huge or not, you know? I’m the kind of person who doesn’t realize that The Arcade Fire is a big deal, but then I expect everybody to know Cocoon, and people tend to not know Cocoon.
  133. I think my mom and dad both wanted to get across to me that… I obviously grew up with great privilege and was very lucky and was able to afford college and not have student loans, and they would pay for college, but beyond that, it would be up to me to make a living.
  134. I think my mum wanted me to join the army or something, or become a surveyor – something with good career prospects.
  135. I think my parents raised me well. And I’m pretty straight edge. All my friends make fun of me for being straight edge.
  136. I think my top salary was maybe in 1966. I made $17,000 and 11 of that came from selling other players’ equipment.
  137. I think naturally my orientation is from my father.
  138. I think New York is a good place to write in general because it’s a grid. It’s organized. You know where you are on the map. That centers you, and your imagination is perhaps freer to roam.
  139. I think ‘NH10’ could have been done equally well by anybody else, and it’s not a ‘female-centric’ or ‘male-centric’ film. It’s the story that will appeal to the audience.
  140. I think no actor should be ever satisfied because there is always something new to do, something fresh to get challenged by.
  141. I think no one would dispute that ‘Chopped’ is a highly athletic television show.
  142. I think nothing ever ends on Disney Channel. They keep playing it.
  143. I think novels are profoundly autobiographical. If writers deny that, they are lying. Or if it’s really true, then I think it’s a mistake.
  144. I think now that the great thing is not so much the formulation of an answer for myself, for the theater, or the play-but rather the most accurate possible statement of the problem.
  145. I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.
  146. I think of all my time as existing in 15-minute blocks. Most people think in terms of 30-minute chunks, but I’ve found that when I free up more time, I waste it.
  147. I think of Canada, first and foremost, in terms of space. The amount of space available is breathtaking.
  148. I think of dying every day… At a certain age, you should be prepared to go at any time.
  149. I think of my body as a side effect of my mind.
  150. I think of my parents as a single unit, and it’s interesting because they shared so much, and they were totally opposite. My mother, a Martha Graham dancer, had a classical background; my father had a back-porch background.
  151. I think of myself as an intelligent, sensitive human being with the soul of a clown which always forces me to blow it at the most important moments.
  152. I think of myself as quite a shy person. But when I’m curious about something, I’ll go quite far to satisfy my curiosity.
  153. I think of religion as man’s attempt to reach God, and you can’t do that.
  154. I think of religion as something that stains the person. It’s a mindset you can never get free from, it’s always in the back of your head.
  155. I think, often, people who run away are people who got into things most enthusiastically, and then they want more. They just demand more of life than what is happening in the moment. Sometimes this is a great mistake, as it’s always a good deal different than you expect it.
  156. I think, on any given day, somebody could help out a homeless person and cuss out somebody that cut them off in traffic, and I think that everybody has that inside them: it’s just how you live that balance – so I think everybody is ‘Wretched and Divine.’
  157. I think once I was in high school – I had boyfriends and stuff like that, but I think when I was younger, I went through a period where I looked like a boy, and people thought I was a boy.
  158. I think one of the basic reasons men make good friends is that they can make up their minds quickly.
  159. I think one of the big things about comedy is the ability for the audience to identify.
  160. I think one of the defining moments of adulthood is the realization that nobody’s going to take care of you. That you have to do the heavy lifting while you’re here. And when you don’t, well, you suffer the consequences.
  161. I think one of the great things about the United States has been our ability to maintain a distinction between our military and domestic law enforcement.
  162. I think one of the greatest gifts you can give to someone is just access to the possibility of freedom that you don’t have to be totally depressed and enslaved by your own environment.
  163. I think one of the greatest joys I have now in my career and in my profession is to be playing at an age where I can appreciate it more than I used to… It’s a whole different lens you look through the older you get.
  164. I think one of the greatest things about the Republican Party is the understanding, we don’t point fingers and we have class.
  165. I think one of the keys to better writing is releasing all of your ideas and to not be afraid. Dream big. This could be the greatest novel in the world you know.
  166. I think one of the saddest things that’s happening to literature is that it’s getting over-simplified by this diet of simple political ideas.
  167. I think one of the very frightening things about the regime of the National Socialists is that it made people happy.
  168. I think one’s feelings waste themselves in words; they ought all to be distilled into actions which bring results.
  169. I think our Batman had to be fun, light-hearted, funny, tongue-in-cheek… and I think that made kind of an homage to those earlier comic books, where Batman always had a quip or something.
  170. I think our capacity for wholeheartedness can never be greater than our willingness to be broken-hearted. It means engaging with the world from a place of vulnerability and worthiness.
  171. I think our culture encourages all of us to always put our best foot forward. I think it’s a good thing. I think it’s nice to rise to the occasion, to be kind and considerate, and have self control.
  172. I think our politicians could learn a lot from Mandela.
  173. I think parenting is very different now. We’re totally governed by our children!
  174. I think parents are probably really excited for their kids and want to give them everything. But there should be a limit on how much you give your kids. Because kids are quite creative, especially at a young age when they don’t really know what rules are.
  175. I think part of the reason ideas haven’t come in is that the world of cinema is changing so drastically, and in a weird way, feature films I think have become cheap. Everything is kind of throwaway. It’s experienced and then forgotten.
  176. I think part of what made the original ‘Sufferfest’ charming was the extremely low production value. It was all shaky handheld footage from Cedar.
  177. I think Pat Robertson is a terrific fellow.
  178. I think Pebble Beach is kind of a unique place on the planet.
  179. I think people always want to hear that there are barriers that exist for us. But the more I started to realize artists that are kind of like me in my lane, like, if they were white or African-American, they often had trouble because it wasn’t the quality of their music: they just didn’t stick out.
  180. I think people are universal.
  181. I think people assume that because I talk the way that I talk that I grew up with money, and then I’ve had to say, ‘No, I grew up poor.’ And then I was like, ‘Why do I have to play this game where the only black experience that’s authentic is the one where you grew up in poverty?’ I mean, it’s ridiculous.
  182. I think people ease into this careerist professionalism, so if you’re a writer it’s your job to manufacture books as opposed to writing them and to go to festivals and spend your life emotionally invested in reviews or the awards. You have to shrink your universe in a way. To me, it’s the opposite.
  183. I think people have a right to their point of view.
  184. I think people have a strong desire to push me and others into some sort of political box that they can wrap their minds around.
  185. I think people in Botswana are pleased that my books paint a positive picture of their lives and portray the country as being very special. They’ve made a great success of their country, and the people are fed up with the constant reporting of only the problems and poverty of the continent. They welcome something which puts the positive side.
  186. I think people in Great Britain are a bit jaded sometimes.
  187. I think people know Steve Jobs the showman. I think people know the guy who stood up and gave the keynotes. The magician. The salesman.
  188. I think people love having a person behind a brand who lives it. The idea of storytelling is really important.
  189. I think people make a really big deal that I’m this big character-issue guy, and I’ve got red flags. I’m not.
  190. I think people should be allowed to do anything they want. We haven’t tried that for a while. Maybe this time it’ll work.
  191. I think people should feel encouraged to be themselves.
  192. I think people sleepwalk through their lives, and for me, I wanted to embrace everything. And that meant the agonizing pain and the transcendence, and you can’t have one without the other.
  193. I think people take me as seriously as I want them to. They take me as seriously as I take myself – let’s put it that way.
  194. I think people that have fear that, ‘Oh if I have a kid I won’t be able to do this and I won’t be able to do that.’ It’s kind of the opposite. It really gives you energy. It makes people better.
  195. I think people want to get married to end their emotional uncertainty. In a way, they want to end powerful feelings, or certainly the negative ones.
  196. I think performance art comes from a simple place of wanting to express things beyond just sound.
  197. I think players need to get paid for what they’re worth, for what they put up on the field.
  198. I think possibly what people working for one hate the most is indecision. Even if I’m completely unsure, I’ll pretend I know exactly what I’m talking about and make a decision. The most important thing I can do is try and make myself very clearly understood.
  199. I think pressure exists in a situation only when you are unsure of your talent and people are expecting a lot from you due to your lineage.
  200. I think privacy is valuable. You don’t have to share everything, and it’s healthy to occasionally hit the pause button and ask yourself if you’re oversharing. But at the end of the day, if you’re not doing anything wrong, you don’t have anything to hide.
  201. I think quite spiritually of myself. I feel like I’m here to support the human evolution.
  202. I think Rachel Maddow is quite good at what she does. I also think she’s a phony who doesn’t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air.
  203. I think rap in general allows you to be more lyrically expressive. It’s a lot easier to state your identity, as opposed to with a guitar making all these weird metaphors.
  204. I think real life couples on screen are kind of deadly. For the most part, they’re kind of deadly. You’d be surprised. Unless they’re falling in love onscreen for the first time, you don’t have quite the same energy for some reason.
  205. I think really, China, Chinese, I think they really have a long history of civilization, rich culture.
  206. I think recreations are a good thing if done right because it can be very dangerous also. If you do something which goes wrong, then people probably won’t like it because they are attached to that old version of the song… So, recreations can be a little tricky.
  207. I think relationships are work, but love is a gift.
  208. I think right after ‘Up in the Air’ everyone wanted me to play the girl from ‘Up in the Air,’ and it took a little while for people to think of me as an actress from a film that they liked instead of just that character.
  209. I think right now it’s a battle for the mindshare of developers and for the mindshare of customers, and right now iPhone and Android are winning that battle.
  210. I think role models exist, but they usually don’t get the light because people like scandal.
  211. I think Ronald Reagan was one of the great presidents, period, not just recently. I thought he had the demeanor. I thought he had the bearing. I thought he had the thought process.
  212. I think Ryan Gosling is a really great actor who’s meticulous about his work. And I’d love to have the guts that Johnny Depp has to actually go outside the box on a character. When he plays a character, he plays it in a way that nobody else would.
  213. I think same sex couples should be able to get married.
  214. I think scars are like battle wounds – beautiful, in a way. They show what you’ve been through and how strong you are for coming out of it.
  215. I think Scotland could take a stand in a wonderful way, ecologically and morally and ethically.
  216. I think secrets often come out. I spoke to a friend who is a therapist and I asked her if there were people who came to her and admitted to doing horrible things and she said, ‘More than you know.’
  217. I think sexuality is a window into someone’s soul.
  218. I think Shrek makes an effect in older people. And there are many things in the movie that you saw that are not for kids. Kids would not understand certain things.
  219. I think so many people live their whole life in fear and doubt and shame.
  220. I think so many times in our society we focus so much on just the end result; when we finally reach that point we realize that was never the true goal.
  221. I think socializing on the Internet is to socializing what reality TV is to reality.
  222. I think some fans want everything to stay they same because they want to stay the same.
  223. I think some of my best theatre training has been in the Marine Corps. Not only meeting a bunch of characters, but growing up. You’re in really adult situations at a young age, as far as being in charge of people.
  224. I think some people forget sometimes I do have to go to the grocery store; I do enjoy going out to dinner. I have to get my oil changed from time to time. I do all the normal things. I cut my grass. People kind of forget that normal part, that we do a lot of the stuff that everybody else does, but we all have our talents, and mine is in football.
  225. I think some people think I’m a smarty-pants. Some people think I’m intense, some people think I’m super-esoteric and nuts.
  226. I think some people who say they’re not Christians can behave in a more godly fashion than people who call themselves Christians.
  227. I think sometimes I intimidate people. I’ve been told that. But I feel I’m the least intimidating person possible.
  228. I think sometimes if you are alone, you are freer because your time is your own.
  229. I think sometimes there are negative connotations for those who have a business mind as well as a creative side.
  230. I think sometimes we seem to obsess on negativity.
  231. I think sometimes we’re meant to do something but things aren’t lined up correctly.
  232. I think sports and bodybuilding were the only things that saved me from getting beat up. People are not pleased, for whatever reason, when you can answer all the questions in class. If not for the respect I got from track, cross-country, wrestling and bodybuilding, it would have been a disaster.
  233. I think St. Jude helped me achieve some miracles in my life – that’s why I wear the medallion in my left ear and never take it out.
  234. I think talented people are priceless. And I think people that are knowledgeable and experienced – and I think there’s a balance of new talent and experience, which makes, I think, Estee Lauder really special.
  235. I think teaching keeps me honest because if I’m up in front of a class talking about what I think is important about fiction while knowing I myself have just failed to do that hours earlier at my computer – it’s a good and humbling reminder.
  236. I think technology really increased human ability. But technology cannot produce compassion.
  237. I think television has had a vast, unbelievable impact on us.
  238. I think Tesla will most likely develop its own autopilot system for the car, as I think it should be camera-based, not Lidar-based. However, it is also possible that we do something jointly with Google.
  239. I think that 99 percent of the time, I’m jocular, lighthearted.
  240. I think that a big part of comedy is being made fun of, and it is looking silly or looking stupid.
  241. I think that a good portion of the ‘Institutional Left’ hates the building blocks of America.
  242. I think that a man should not live beyond the age when he begins to deteriorate, when the flame that lighted the brightest moment of his life has weakened.
  243. I think that all people who feel that there is injustice in the world anywhere should learn as much of it as they can bear. That is our duty.
  244. I think that all things, in their way, reflect heavenly truth, the imagination not least.
  245. I think that always makes it fun, trying to create a heroic character and putting your own twist on it and injecting your own personality into it.
  246. I think that American women are further along than any other women in the world. But you can’t have peace in a world in which some women or some men or some nations are at different stages of development. There is so much work to be done.
  247. I think that any business that thinks that the transaction is ‘you give me money and I give you food, next, you give me money and I give you food, next,’ without understanding that people deeply want to feel restored is in danger.
  248. I think that any wealth creates a sense of trusteeship… it is characteristic of the new generation which has created wealth to have some amount of responsibility for it.
  249. I think that artists, at a certain point, can either become defiant and say that the audience is wrong, readers don’t get them, and they’re going to keep doing it their own way, or they can listen to the criticism – and not necessarily blindly follow the audience’s requests and advice.
  250. I think that, as athletes, sometimes we have the opportunities to make an impact. When it’s authentic, I think there’s room to share your opinion in an appropriate way.
  251. I think that at heart I am an old-fashioned Chinese, really I am.
  252. I think that being Jewish is in some ways unique because there’s this conflation of race, culture and religion.
  253. I think that black people making art, women making art, and certainly black women making art is a disruptive endeavor – and it’s one that I enjoy extremely.
  254. I think that cakes should have touches of candy bar in order for it really to hit all those childhood notes on the keyboard.
  255. I think that ‘celebrity’ and ‘chef’ should be a permanent oxymoron.
  256. I think that certainly the artists of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s were fighting a very conformist society, which didn’t give them enough space to live or create, and they were bucking all kinds of spoken and unspoken rules.
  257. I think that comedy is one of the more serious things that you can do in our day, especially in the world that we’re living in.
  258. I think that commercials can really ruin a song. You know that the person sold the song for a good deal of money, and that was the tradeoff. But, music and picture can marry in a beautiful way, and the reverse also.
  259. I think that everyone has something about themselves that they feel is their weakness… their ‘disability.’ And I’m certain we all have one, because I think of a disability as being anything which undermines our belief and confidence in our own abilities.
  260. I think that fashion has become such a big business and with globalization we are on new territory at this point. We are not just designing for a country we are designing for a world now.
  261. I think that for people who are trying to make a difference, you have to start the company being naive. You wouldn’t do it if you understood all the work. I work a lot. I wish it was easier.
  262. I think that for some people faith is good – they have something to draw to.
  263. I think that gay marriage should be between a man and a woman.
  264. I think that God, in creating man, somewhat overestimated his ability.
  265. I think that Gollum is really the character who is a very human character, and he’s very flawed, like most humans are, and has good and bad sides.
  266. I think that Governor Romney needs to talk about the fact that what he tried to do in the state of Massachusetts was him seeing what could be best for his state, but maybe it didn’t work out as well.
  267. I think that Governor Romney operates on the capital gains tax, his investments, what he lives off of instead of doing it off of his income.
  268. I think that growing up in a crowded continent like Europe with an awful lot of competing claims, ideas… cultures… and systems of thought, we have, perforce, developed a more sophisticated notion of what the word ‘freedom’ means than I see much evidence of in America.
  269. I think that growth happens and that learning happens in anybody’s life regardless of what profession you’re in.
  270. I think that has to do with my awareness that in a sense we all have a certain measure of responsibility to those who have made it possible for us to take advantage of the opportunities.
  271. I think that Hezbollah, no doubt that they work together with the Syrians.
  272. I think that I do feel that my nature is to express what this self, this particular self at this time, experiences in the world. And that is so organic – I use this metaphor a lot but I’ll use it again – it’s like a pine tree producing pine cones, or a blackberry bush producing blackberries – it’s just what happens with this being, now.
  273. I think that I find a lot of my healing out in the world.
  274. I think that I know the value of a dollar.
  275. I think that ideas exist outside of ourselves. I think somewhere, we’re all connected off in some very abstract land. But somewhere between there and here ideas exist.
  276. I think that if all kids aspire to reach a point where they could feed themselves and a few of their friends, this would be good for the world surely.
  277. I think that if I would talk on a political subject, if I talk about it, it would divide the audience on that issue. That’s not my issue.
  278. I think that if my kids are completely convinced of God’s unfailing love for them, whether they fail or not, they’ll have confidence to persevere in life.
  279. I think that if something’s really good, and it touches that part of their heart that has been untouched, or maybe it has been touched but they never wanted to admit it, I think that when they get back to that, I think that we are still in a place that people enjoy it the way it’s supposed to be enjoyed.
  280. I think that if we get back to some basic fundamental principles, we can make sure that we resolve the issues. And I think that that’s what the Tea Party was all about. It’s getting back to a constitutional conservative government. And that is limited, but it’s also effective and efficient. I think that that’s what we’ll be able to do.
  281. I think that if we really want to break it down, that non-black filmmakers have had many, many years and many, many opportunities to tell many, many stories about themselves, and black filmmakers have not had as many years, as many opportunities, as many films to explore the nuances of our reality.
  282. I think that if you are looking at a comic that’s made by one person, that there’s just a level of intimacy that I don’t really see anywhere else.
  283. I think that if you can’t be loyal to the Church, it’s best to get out.
  284. I think that if you want to pass emotion, you have to write a letter. Emotions do not pass in SMS or in e-mail.
  285. I think that I’m perfect.
  286. I think that in an increasingly virtual world, lovingly produced artefacts are at a premium.
  287. I think that in order to be a film director, one has to be a warrior who shouldn’t be defeated by the daily onslaught of problems.
  288. I think that in order to get better as an athlete and to see whatever kind of results you’re after, you have to make goals. Whether you write them down or tell someone about them, it’s important to set goals for yourself in order to achieve any kind of success.
  289. I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations.
  290. I think that is a better thing than thanksgiving: thanks-living. How is this to be done? By a general cheerfulness of manner, by an obedience to the command of Him by whose mercy we live, by a perpetual, constant delighting of ourselves in the Lord, and by a submission of our desires to His will.
  291. I think that it’s important that actors keep getting challenged every day. For every creative person, it’s a terrible moment when they say they have done all they want to do.
  292. I think that it’s interesting how shows like ‘Walking Dead’ or even ‘Game of Thrones,’ with all its fantasy elements, have become so popular. Sometimes, though, I get a little bit annoyed because the whole nerd thing taking over and is now cool, and it wasn’t cool when I was younger.
  293. I think that I’ve always been attracted to characters who are positive and come from a very innocent place. I think there’s a lot of room for discovery in these characters, and that’s something I always have fun playing.
  294. I think that Jersey Shore is awesome. I’ve gone to Cape May every summer of my life.
  295. I think that kids aren’t even exploring the option of sports anymore, and they don’t even know what they could do.
  296. I think that lawyers are terrible at admitting that they’re wrong. And not just admitting it; also realizing it. Most lawyers are very successful, and they think that because they’re making money and people think well of them, they must be doing everything right.
  297. I think that lawyers are terrible at admitting that they’re wrong. And not just admitting it – also realizing it.
  298. I think that live shows are more important for singers than composers, because composers still get a lot of recognition as compared to a singer.
  299. I think that more and more and more really talented restauranteurs and chefs from the fine dining world are going to try their hand at fine casual. They’re going to say, ‘Why not us?’
  300. I think that more diversity is a good thing, and fresh points of view articulated by people who are committed to excellence in journalism is a beneficial change in the American media landscape.
  301. I think that most of the children’s writers live in the world that they’ve created, and their children are kind of phantoms that wander around the edge of it in the world, but actually the children’s writers are the children.
  302. I think that most of us would prefer to be popular than unpopular.
  303. I think that most people who are just artists, who are getting famous, would trade a lot of their fame back for some normalcy, pretty much immediately.
  304. I think that most people will spend their whole life not figuring out what they’re meant to do, or figuring out what they’re meant to do on their way to do something else. So I just feel lucky that I know what I love to do. Everything else figures itself out.
  305. I think that my films are basically family stories, beyond the fact that they are global and have political and social commentary.
  306. I think that my ideas of the world are that it’s random and cruel but kind of quite comical really, and therefore the humour, in a sense, springs from that.
  307. I think that my music is really empowering. I just want people to know – especially young people, but really everyone – that you don’t have to be so caught up in what everyone else is thinking. You don’t have to be the coolest, most popular person. You can just be you and be vulnerable.
  308. I think that my peers deserve more than products to buy wrapped up in advertising. We need ideas to share and causes to believe in – opportunities to lead and teach.
  309. I think that nerds, if you want to call them that, have only gotten more hip and assimilated into the culture.
  310. I think that obstacles lead to growth and ultimately, the most learning I’ve done in my life is between jobs.
  311. I think that one of the most fundamental responsibilities is to give testimony in a court of law, to give it honestly and willingly.
  312. I think that people are interested seeing me on the screen.
  313. I think that people that don’t really understand the game of football and are just fans that think people just show up on Saturday and go, I don’t think they understand the work that we put in here and what our schemes are and what we’re trying to do.
  314. I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it.
  315. I think that people would like to, at all times, reject death and disease with technology.
  316. I think that Peter Jennings is the only decent one of the big three.
  317. I think that romance sort of coincides with effort, so you can fall flat on your face, but as long as you’re making a great effort, I think it comes off as romantic. So it can be something as simple as, like, if you’re someone who doesn’t cook, you can make a meal.
  318. I think that sexuality is only attractive when it’s natural and spontaneous.
  319. I think that Shake Shack wouldn’t exist had it not been for Twitter. I don’t think you would have gotten a hundred New Yorkers to stand in line for an hour if they couldn’t have made their time really productive and organized snowball fights, ordered free hot chocolate, and, you know, Instagrammed photos.
  320. I think that slavery is wrong, morally, socially and politically. I desire that it should be no further spread in these United States, and I should not object if it should gradually terminate in the whole Union.
  321. I think that society has to be careful not to shift all of its resources to the elderly versus the young.
  322. I think that some people still think that the formula other than gospel still is not strong enough to get that crossover appeal to people enough that they would play it all the time, or nonchurch people would accept it, but I disagree.
  323. I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and then live with that decision.
  324. I think that Subway has shown their own personal commitment as a company and how they believe in healthy choices.
  325. I think that tennis is a lady’s sport, so we should look out there like ladies.
  326. I think that texting and driving is a 100 percent no-go. I think it should be banned everywhere because you cannot be focused on looking ahead, in the mirrors, being aware of what’s around you, and to type on a small keyboard and a small screen.
  327. I think that that’s the wisest thing – to prevent illness before we try to cure something.
  328. I think that that’s why artists make art – it is difficult to put into words unless you are a poet. What it takes is being open to the flow of universal creativity. The Zen artists knew this.
  329. I think that the best things come from thought, without thinking. I think that’s the smartest use of the intelligence that we all have.
  330. I think that the Bible teaches that homosexuality is a sin, but the Bible also teaches that pride is a sin, jealousy is a sin, and hate is a sin, evil thoughts are a sin. So I don’t think that homosexuality should be chosen as the overwhelming sin that we are doing today.
  331. I think that the default for collecting any kind of personal data should be opt-in consent.
  332. I think that the digital media are interesting enough in their own right to be worth originating something in.
  333. I think that the EU with the Lisbon agenda has put the right emphasis on growth and employment.
  334. I think that the idea of people wanting to steal your genome remains a little bit in the world of science fiction. It’s a new technology, and it’s new science that people are becoming familiar with. It’s critical for us to do everything we can to enable the privacy level that people want.
  335. I think that the idea of people wanting to steal your genome remains a little bit in the world of science fiction.
  336. I think that the Occupy movement is, in one sense, the public saying that they should be the ones to decide who’s too big to fail.
  337. I think that the truth is a really stern taskmistress.
  338. I think that the way that Steve Jobs sought after love was to create products that people loved. And when people loved his products, in turn they – he felt like they loved him.
  339. I think that the wonderful advantage we have in the film of being able to cast a girl as young as Emmy and which we couldn’t do in the theatre of course because no girl of 16 or 17 could sing 8 shows a week, couldn’t sing two.
  340. I think that the young people today feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to their brothers and sisters because of the sacrifices that most families make to send their children to college.
  341. I think that there are some teachers that do a very good job of incorporating culture and history. And there are some teachers who could use a little more help in that area.
  342. I think that there is a changing wind. There are black conservatives out there, and their voices need to be heard.
  343. I think that there is nothing, not even crime, more opposed to poetry, to philosophy, ay, to life itself than this incessant business.
  344. I think that there’s no doubt that as I see friends, families, children of gay couples who are thriving, you know, that has an impact on how I think about these issues.
  345. I think that this liberal progressive agenda is not the thing that the American people want and it’s antithesis to who we are as a constitutional republic.
  346. I think that titles are for, I don’t know, books and stuff. I just like doing what I’m doing.
  347. I think that we need mythology. We need a bedrock of story and legend in order to live our lives coherently.
  348. I think that wealthy white people would like to have a country that resembles the Fifties, when all the minorities were tucked away in ghettos and paid in very low wages but on the surface it was very bright and shiny and free and the rest of the world would look on it longingly.
  349. I think that what happens for many Christians is, they accept their particular faith, they accept it to be true, and they stop examining it. Consequently, because it’s already accepted to be true, they don’t examine other people’s faiths… That, I think, is not healthy for a person of any faith.
  350. I think that, whatever happens, I’m just happy I’ve written those songs and I’ve made an album. That’s really big for me, and I’m proud of that.
  351. I think that when we start thought-policing people and idea-policing people, then that’s crossing a line. And I think, you know, everybody’s so afraid of this imaginary line of thought police that they forget their own personal safety.
  352. I think that when we wrestle with death… we start fearing life, because then we come to terms with something that is inevitable.
  353. I think that when you are famous every weakness is exaggerated.
  354. I think that when you first read material or you first read a script or story and know you might be playing a part, it’s important not to see yourself because it should be a challenge enough that it doesn’t come easy.
  355. I think that when you get right down to it, people do evolve on different issues. And, you know, I’m pro-life. And I was begrudgingly the other way.
  356. I think that women definitely have a special bond as friends that is hard to describe to men, and we don’t often see that portrayed narratively.
  357. I think that women who know who they are are beautiful.
  358. I think that’s something that’s hard for this country to address, is what the real issues are and coming to the point where we can admit that these are issues. Once we admit that, we can deal with it, we can fix them, and we can make this country and these communities a better place.
  359. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.
  360. I think that’s why I was able to do well in the beginning: because it was such a foreign thing. People frame it in a negative way, like, ‘For Asian-Americans there’s no one out there, so that must be really bad for you.’ No, I benefited from it.
  361. I think the acquisition of consumers might be on the verge of being mapped. The battlefield is going to be retention and lifetime value.
  362. I think the actors in ‘Greystoke’ were amazing. They had a really good performance coach called Peter Elliott who’s, of his time, one of the greatest simian performance coaches for actors.
  363. I think the actresses who are really successful are the ones who are comfortable in their own skins and still look human.
  364. I think the advantage of democracy is that it makes us less dependent on a group of leaders.
  365. I think the American people in many cases want to transform our energy system.
  366. I think the American West really attracts me because it’s romantic. The desert, the empty space, the drama.
  367. I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I’ve been challenged by so many people, and I don’t frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn’t have time either.
  368. I think the big thing about Groupon is just people had never seen anything grow quite so fast.
  369. I think the biggest difference is that I’ve noticed Western parents seem much more concerned about their children’s psyches, their self-esteem, whereas tough immigrant parents assume strength rather than fragility in their children and therefore behave completely differently.
  370. I think the biggest part of my game that’s underestimated is the mental part of it.
  371. I think the biggest problem in clinical trials is that they are underpowered. And that fundamentally, the studies are just too small.
  372. I think the biggest problem of the 21st century is how to deal with minorities.
  373. I think the blues is the best literature that we as blacks have created since we’ve been here. I call it our ‘sacred book.’ What I’ve attempted to do is to mine that field, to mine those cultural ideas and attitudes and give them to my characters.
  374. I think the book struck me in a few ways that I thought very interesting to pick it as my first martial arts film. It has a very strong female character and it was very abundant in classic Chinese textures.
  375. I think the brain is essentially a computer and consciousness is like a computer program. It will cease to run when the computer is turned off. Theoretically, it could be re-created on a neural network, but that would be very difficult, as it would require all one’s memories.
  376. I think the British audience might be more open-minded with some of my imagery and weird choices.
  377. I think ‘The Color Purple’ is so bursting with love, the need for connection, the showing of the need for connection around the globe.
  378. I think the cost of energy will come down when we make this transition to renewable energy.
  379. I think the Creator renews me.
  380. I think the days of putting your feet up when you’re pregnant are long gone. Women who are nine months pregnant now have to work till the bitter end – they don’t get to be on TV.
  381. I think the debate in our society now is that people have to agree on zero-tolerance to terrorism.
  382. I think the deeper you go into questions, the deeper or more interesting the questions get. And I think that’s the job of art.
  383. I think the depth, what children can handle and what they’re interested in, is much deeper than I think what people assume. I think it’s why sometimes we make things too simple for them.
  384. I think the designs and creativity are limitless with 3-D-printed clothing.
  385. I think the difficult thing is the transition between TV competition series and going into the actual music industry. There still seems to be a slight disconnect there.
  386. I think the discovery of supersymmetric partners for the known particles would revolutionize our understanding of the universe.
  387. I think the era of the diva actress is coming to an end.
  388. I think the extreme complexity of medicine has become more than an individual clinician can handle. But not more than teams of clinicians can handle.
  389. I think the eyes flirt most. There are so many ways to use them.
  390. I think the fall in Eden was ultimately a failure to give thanks.
  391. I think the fans really wanna hear the songs the way they sound on the record.
  392. I think the fashion industry has gotten to a place where it is embarrassing.
  393. I think the first British actor who really worked well in cinema was Albert Finney. He was a back-street Marlon Brando. He brought a great wittiness and power to the screen. The best actor we’ve had.
  394. I think the first duty of society is justice.
  395. I think the first photograph I did was a ballplayer. It was a way of showing action or something.
  396. I think the first time you try anything in a public way, you feel really exposed.
  397. I think the foundation of everything in my life is wonder.
  398. I think the French and the Japanese are both obsessed by seasons, small producers, freshness.
  399. I think the future of psychotherapy and psychology is in the school system. We need to teach every child how to rarely seriously disturb himself or herself and how to overcome disturbance when it occurs.
  400. I think the gay community should get smart and drop the word ‘marriage.’ Do you really need to change every right-wing Christian to make sure you get your equal rights? Eyes on the prize, we should be sticking to getting equal rights.
  401. I think the government has a role in protecting the fundamental rights of its citizens.
  402. I think the great thing about social media is it gives people access to you on a totally personal level that they didn’t have before, so it’s really important, and it’s a great way to get people involved and excited about what you’re doing.
  403. I think the hardest thing is losing weight. That’s the hardest thing more than anything else.
  404. I think the hardest thing to do in the world, show-business-wise, is write comedy.
  405. I think the healthy way to live is to make friends with the beast inside oneself, and that means not the beast but the shadow. The dark side of one’s nature. Have fun with it and you know, is to accept everything about ourselves.
  406. I think the high-tech industry is used to developing new things very quickly. It’s the Silicon Valley way of doing business: You either move very quickly and you work hard to improve your product technology, or you get destroyed by some other company.
  407. I think the human body is beautiful, and I don’t really have a huge problem in dealing with it, but it’s the context, the environment and what I feel about it that that makes the difference for me.
  408. I think the human race doesn’t have a future if it doesn’t go into space.
  409. I think the idea of art kills creativity.
  410. I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now – no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore.
  411. I think the importance of doing activist work is precisely because it allows you to give back and to consider yourself not as a single individual who may have achieved whatever but to be a part of an ongoing historical movement.
  412. I think the important thing is that I’ve never tried to be someone I’m not. People can read right through that.
  413. I think the inflation prospects for the U.S. over the next five or six, seven years, are quite serious. You cannot have a bumper crop in apples without the value or the price of each apple falling. The Fed has had the largest increase in the monetary base in the history of the U.S., from colonial times to the present, times ten.
  414. I think the Internet has developed at this incredibly rapid pace because of net neutrality, because of the free nature of it, because a YouTube can start the way YouTube started.
  415. I think the Iranians are clearly determined to have a nuclear program. And we have to assume that with a nuclear program they have the capability and the will to create a nuclear weapon.
  416. I think the kick to doing comedy is just to get in a film with really funny people and let them do their jobs. I find that in most comedies, I’m not the funny one, which works out great.
  417. I think the kind of landscape that you grew up in, it lives with you. I don’t think it’s true of people who’ve grown up in cities so much; you may love a building, but I don’t think that you can love it in the way that you love a tree or a river or the colour of the earth; it’s a different kind of love.
  418. I think the materialist conception of history is valid.
  419. I think the media can be a very positive influence by essentially holding people to task about the importance of high quality medical care. And when the media is scrutinizing you, then I think that’s a very good, positive thing for the field of medicine.
  420. I think the media can definitely show more diversity – different sizes of women, different colours of women, just more diversity in general.
  421. I think the most experimental way to a film is to tell the story the traditional way, because everyone is doing the other thing.
  422. I think the most important reason for our success is that very early in our quest into globalisation, we invested in people – and we have done that consistently and particularly in the service business.
  423. I think the notion of traditional anchor is fading away – the all-knowing, all-seeing person who speaks from on high. I don’t think the audience really buys that anymore. As a viewer, I know I don’t buy it.
  424. I think the obvious answer is I was raised in New York City, so growing up, not only myself but my family, like my father, we would watch a lot of Scorsese films.
  425. I think the overwhelming majority of the American people know that we have got to stand together, that we’re going to grow together, that we’re going to survive together, and that if we start splintering, we’re not going to succeed in a highly competitive international economy.
  426. I think the part of media that romanticizes criminal behavior, things that a person will say against women, profanity, being gangster, having multiple children with multiple men and women and not wanting to is prevalent. When you look at the majority of shows on television they placate that kind of behavior.
  427. I think the people get that I’m just kind of an anomaly in a certain way.
  428. I think the person who takes a job in order to live – that is to say, for the money – has turned himself into a slave.
  429. I think the players win the championship, and the organization has something to do with it, don’t get me wrong. But don’t try to put the organization above the players.
  430. I think The Police made five great records and then called it a day. They went out on top.
  431. I think the political class in Berlin doesn’t need to be supervised and monitored by intelligence services in order to find out what they’re thinking. Just go to lunch with them, go to dinner with them, or read the papers.
  432. I think the positive competition between states in India is one of the most positive dynamics that the country has.
  433. I think the problems with being older come when your body cannot do what your mind wants. Then, Houston, we have a problem.
  434. I think the reason I don’t read is because, when I’m reading, I feel like I’m missing out on something else. You know, What are my friends doing? Where’s my girlfriend?
  435. I think the reason I was successful is that I was never cynical.
  436. I think the response I get to one ‘New Yorker’ cover outweighs five books that I publish.
  437. I think the self-burning itself on practice of non-violence. These people, you see, they easily use bomb explosive, more casualty people. But they didn’t do that. Only sacrifice their own life. So this also is part of practice of non-violence.
  438. I think the sense of family and family achievement, plus the discipline which I received there from that one-room school were really very helpful in what I did later on.
  439. I think the success of democracy is not really police security; it’s the presence of a broad middle class. The stronger the middle class of a people is, the less you have to worry about one group coming in and exploiting the democratic process for its own ends.
  440. I think the success that I have is due to hard work and destiny. It is important to stay grounded and not take things for granted.
  441. I think the thing about film is, as it gets proved by a lot of young filmmakers now, that the medium will just go on reinventing itself, and so you just hope to be a part of that and not a part of some kind of endless regurgitation or ‘Here I am doing what you know I do’ kind of thing.
  442. I think the thing I fear most in life is waking up one day and not feeling challenge – feeling ambivalent or glib about what I have to do that day.
  443. I think the thing that I get most excited about is the fact that I know I’m gonna have a great match. That’s when I get the butterflies. When it’s just a regular match or something like that, I may not get that.
  444. I think the thing we see is that as people are using video games more, they tend to watch passive TV a bit less. And so using the PC for the Internet, playing video games, is starting to cut into the rather unbelievable amount of time people spend watching TV.
  445. I think the thing’s that perhaps sad really is that younger people haven’t come in and I think it must have been absolutely fantastic to have worked in the 50’s when you had all of the great Broadway composers and when West Side Story didn’t win the Tony Award.
  446. I think the virtue I prize above all others is curiosity. If you look really hard at almost anybody, and try to see why they’re doing what they’re doing, taking a dig at them ceases to be what you want to do even if you hate them.
  447. I think the War on Terror is really absurd, especially coming from a country that is founded on terrorism.
  448. I think the whole issue of a debt ceiling makes no sense to me whatsoever. Anybody who is remotely adroit at arithmetic doesn’t need a debt ceiling to tell you where you are.
  449. I think the world is a place for oddballs and freaks. I’m only interested in oddballs and freaks as characters.
  450. I think the world is very closed-minded sometimes and very dated. We need to start opening our minds.
  451. I think the World Trade Center should be rebuilt as the World Trade Center, only stronger and one story taller. I hate what they’re doing with the World Trade Center site.
  452. I think theatricality is just one way of performing. I don’t think it’s a better way or the way, but it’s my way.
  453. I think there are a lot more important things than art in the world. But not to me.
  454. I think there are a lot of people who, when they hear the word ‘socialist,’ get very, very nervous.
  455. I think there are a number of things that you can do to encourage your kids’ dreams, but I do believe in speaking by experience of having a lot of help along the way, stumbling in the past. We’ve all stumbled, and we certainly all deserve to get up and walk again.
  456. I think there are a whole host of things that are civil rights, and then there are other things – such as traditional marriage – that, I think, express a community’s concern and regard for a particular institution.
  457. I think there are barriers, but I think for me specifically, my barrier is being rejected from the kind of hip-hop elitists that think I’m not appropriating it, but just not serious about it. They think I’m a Lonely Island, Weird Al, you know – like a parody rapper. So that alienates me from a lot of things.
  458. I think there are many things that we can do today to make it a better work environment that is more supportive and encouraging of diversity.
  459. I think there are many ways to raise great kids. From what I can tell, Ayelet Waldman’s kids are interesting, strong, and happy, and if that’s the case, that’s good parenting.
  460. I think there are more politicians in favor of electric cars than against. There are still some that are against, and I think the reasoning for that varies depending on the person, but in some cases, they just don’t believe in climate change – they think oil will last forever.
  461. I think there are rock stars within every subgenre, and for people who are obsessed with musical theater Sutton Foster and Audra MacDonald are like Beyonce to them. I’m sure the a cappella world has their own version of that, and that exists in every geeky subculture.
  462. I think there is a little magic in the fact that I’m so totally real but look so artificial at the same time.
  463. I think there is a lot made out of age, and what age you feel.
  464. I think there is a sense of being forced at this time to look at America’s really large shadow and that’s not all that bad.
  465. I think there is always going to be inspired music and there are always going to be inspired listeners and there is always going to be an inspired method of getting it from A to B.
  466. I think there is no better way to invite a human being to view their body differently than by inviting them to be an athlete, by revering one’s body as an instrument rather than just an ornament.
  467. I think there is only one quality worse than hardness of heart and that is softness of head.
  468. I think there is sexy. And then there’s tacky sexy. When you’re young, you can get away with tacky sexy. I mean, it’s not even tacky when you’re young. But when you get older, it’s just tacky.
  469. I think there needs to be modified penalties in training camp because there’s severely modified compensation in training camp for all of us.
  470. I think there should be a literacy test and a poll tax for people to vote.
  471. I think there should be laughs in everything. Sometimes, it’s a slammed door, a pie in the face or just a recognition of our frailties.
  472. I think there will always be a particular generation of actors who… think that they’re going to be replaced by robots. But certainly the emerging actors… understand that that’s part of the craft.
  473. I think there will be PCs at every price point.
  474. I think there would be less torture with a warrant requirement than without one.
  475. I think, therefore, I thunk!
  476. I think there’s a gigantic generation gap in terms of how people understand the Internet and how much they think technology is an important factor in social change.
  477. I think there’s a lot of anxiety about being seen as a bad parent. There’s still a lot of subjects that I think people aren’t entirely comfortable being honest about.
  478. I think there’s a lot of interesting stuff on TV. I feel much more optimistic about TV than I do about movies. There will always be good movies but I think, for the most part, it’s always going to be a huge fight to get those movies made. TV is the best place to be as a writer, I think.
  479. I think there’s a lot of misunderstanding about genetic information and what you can and cannot learn. One of the things we try to do is educate individuals that knowing information is empowering.
  480. I think there’s a lot of misunderstanding about genetic information and what you can and cannot learn.
  481. I think there’s a lot to be learned from your teammates and older guys around you. And there are many ways to lead. You don’t have to change your personality to be a leader.
  482. I think there’s a lot to learn from Rockefeller on how to pass legislation.
  483. I think there’s a point to regulating, because there are snake oil companies.
  484. I think there’s a tendency to think geeks and nerds are just sweet guys that were picked on, but that hasn’t been my experience. I’m certainly not like that, in a lot of ways.
  485. I think there’s a void for some authentic soul music with an edge. I think there’s some people who grew up with Motown and Stevie Wonder that still can appreciate Future, Drake, and all these different things, too, but there shouldn’t be a void for those people, as well.
  486. I think there’s always been a traditionally apocalyptic side to British science fiction, from H.G. Wells onwards. I mean, most of Wells’ stories are potentially apocalyptic in some sense or another.
  487. I think there’s every reason this 21st century will be much happier.
  488. I think there’s no sacrifice too great for family, whether it’s career, singing, whatever.
  489. I think there’s nothing wrong with being fixated on superheroes when you are 7 years old, but I think there’s a disease in not growing up.
  490. I think there’s so much emphasis on body image and results and outcome, but really what you should be after is to be healthy and to feel good about yourself.
  491. I think there’s some connection between absolute discipline and absolute freedom.
  492. I think there’s this idea that lipstick is something quite old or something you’d only wear at night.
  493. I think they should have a Barbie with a buzz cut.
  494. I think they should have movies in restaurants. I can’t believe that so many people get together just to sit there. It’s so abstract… isn’t it abstract? What are these people sitting here watching?
  495. I think things happened the way they did for a reason.
  496. I think this is really a defining moment for the Arab world. The problem is, it is all going to be about blood, sweat and tears. In certain countries it may be just sweat, and in some countries sweat and tears, and in some countries, as you can see, a lot of blood. I think initial instability is something that we are all extremely nervous of.
  497. I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered at the White House – with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.
  498. I think Thomas Jefferson would have said the more speech, the better.
  499. I think those who have a terminal illness and are in great pain should have the right to choose to end their own life, and those that help them should be free from prosecution.
  500. I think tights make a comeback out of necessity every season: you can only go so far with naked legs in the cold! You’ve got to protect yourself. I remember going to a fashion show and saying, ‘And it’s okay if I wear nude tights with this?’ to the designer, who looked at me like I just killed his dog or something.
  501. I think to say that meditation is helpful to artists is true and it’s great, but it’s also essentially helpful to any kind of process of, just, life.
  502. I think towards the end of my career, I’m the man. But right now, I’ve still got that underdog mentality to keep on proving myself time and again. I’m not going to believe the hype.
  503. I think training of better Youth Coaches is essential.
  504. I think trying to be flashy and doing things that are out of your realm of comfort is the problem with the Divas.
  505. I think Twitter is such a cool thing because it really is a direct line to the fans and for fans back to you, and it’s such a new thing. I think in the past there’s been usually fan mail and that’s really good, but Twitter, it gets an immediate response.
  506. I think unadulterated products and smaller portion sizes mean consumption of less food overall. Portion is everything. The first time I bought a scoop of ice cream in Paris, they weighed the ice cream on a scale before putting it on the cone. It was so small, it fell into the cone as she handed it to me.
  507. I think understanding is the way to gain perspective – and therefore can live among those hideous realities. You can live with them.
  508. I think, unfortunately, everything is becoming about comfort, you know? A comfortable way to tell a story. The comfortable way, so that the audience will never be lost. A comfortable way to produce a film with green screens or without a lot of physical effort or losing control because of the weather or physical locations.
  509. I think universities are trying to figure out how we could use what we know about learning to change our education system, but it is sort of funny that they don’t necessarily seem to be consulting the people who are sitting right there on campus.
  510. I think vampires are a timeless powerful archetype that can tap into people’s psyches.
  511. I think very poorly of United Russia. United Russia is the party of corruption, the party of crooks and thieves. And it is the duty of every patriot and citizen of our country to make sure that this party is destroyed.
  512. I think very poorly of United Russia. United Russia is the party of corruption, the party of crooks and thieves.
  513. I think vestigially there’s a synesthete in me, but not like a real one who immediately knows what colour Wednesday is.
  514. I think viewers realize that people are a lot more three-dimensional than TV has traditionally portrayed them, particularly in news.
  515. I think war is so incredibly backward, and I don’t think it’s intelligent, and it’s not sane. So why would you want to support it?
  516. I think watching multi-events is much worse than competing. Especially when you have vested interests because you go through the emotional ups and downs.
  517. I think we all change each other’s paths. I don’t know which law idea that is in physics, but I don’t think any of us can live without affecting one another.
  518. I think we all have empathy. We may not have enough courage to display it.
  519. I think we all have the right to feel 100 percent beautiful and 100 percent confident without pleasing anybody ’cause we’re not here for anybody else.
  520. I think we all want to really live good lives, and we all really want to have a healthy planet, although I don’t know if we’re supposed to be on it forever. Now, does that mean that we should be building rocket ships to shoot us into outer space? Well if we can, I think we should.
  521. I think we are all connected in this world.
  522. I think we are at the dawn of a new era in commercial space exploration.
  523. I think we are bound to, and by, nature. We may want to deny this connection and try to believe we control the external world, but every time there’s a snowstorm or drought, we know our fate is tied to the world around us.
  524. I think we are defined as human beings through our families, no matter what kind of family – through our relationships with parents, brothers and sisters.
  525. I think we are definitely suffering from an information overload, but I believe that there is going to be better and better ways of organizing that information and processing it so that it will enhance your daily life.
  526. I think we are faced in medicine with the reality that we have to be willing to talk about our failures and think hard about them, even despite the malpractice system. I mean, there are things that we can do to make that system better.
  527. I think we are realising that governments can’t govern us any more.
  528. I think we as celebrities have a lot more control.
  529. I think we do good things and bad things, sometimes simultaneously – or they may be the same thing.
  530. I think we have a duty to maintain the light of consciousness to make sure it continues into the future.
  531. I think we have a good chance of surviving long enough to colonize the solar system.
  532. I think we have to own the fears that we have of each other, and then, in some practical way, some daily way, figure out how to see people differently than the way we were brought up to.
  533. I think we have to understand that sugar is an essential component of food; it’s just that sugar in excess is an inappropriate and unhelpful diet.
  534. I think we have to understand that when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it will lead to cultural suicide. We should not allow the Muslim Brotherhood or associated groups to be influencing our national security strategy.
  535. I think we must get rid of slavery, or we must get rid of freedom.
  536. I think we need the feminine qualities of leadership, which include attention to aesthetics and the environment, nurturing, affection, intuition and the qualities that make people feel safe and cared for.
  537. I think we ought always to entertain our opinions with some measure of doubt. I shouldn’t wish people dogmatically to believe any philosophy, not even mine.
  538. I think we ought to raise the age at which juveniles can have a gun.
  539. I think we were colonized by aliens 250,000 years ago, and they genetically altered our DNA to be primates into homo erectus and humans. I’m very interested in how we evolved so suddenly, which obviously ties in with the alien thing.
  540. I think wearables in general have, as their best calling, to better understand our current state and needs and to express those back to the world.
  541. I think we’ll see, not only with Glass, but the watch wearables, with the contact lens, that each of these things have their own best purpose, but it will take more on our part and society’s part to figure out what that is.
  542. I think we’re getting to the point where everyone’s getting fat and everyone’s getting allergic, or claims to be allergic to something and people can’t walk from their front door to their car without a bottle of water in their hand because they have to hydrate every three and half steps.
  543. I think we’re going to start to see a new model of civic advocacy where people get together once in a while to protest, but it’s more about an ongoing, sustained engagement in issues, networks and communities about which people care.
  544. I think we’re having fun. I think our customers really like our products. And we’re always trying to do better.
  545. I think we’re just scratching the surface. One of the most exciting aspects of 23andMe is that we’re enabling you to watch a revolution unfold live during your lifetime, and I think that the decoding of the genome, in my opinion, is the most fascinating discovery of our lifetime, and you get to be part of it.
  546. I think we’re lucky to be living when we are, because things are going to get worse.
  547. I think we’re seeing privacy diminish, not by laws… but by young people who don’t seem to value their privacy.
  548. I think we’ve all been in the middle of doing something we cared about, when someone coming in the room and saying ‘hello’ was annoying. I personally can understand that, as someone who tries to create.
  549. I think we’ve made tremendous progress on racism. We’ve even made progress on war. We’ve made almost no progress on poverty.
  550. I think we’ve taken the meaning of Christmas out. People don’t stop and think about Jesus or the birth of Jesus. When they think of Christmas, they think of Santa Claus and – for the children, and they think of giving gifts and out-giving the next person of spending their time looking for the right thing for somebody who has everything.
  551. I think what I mostly realize is just that life is unpredictable. So don’t be afraid, but just enjoy the day you’re in. Really make the most of it.
  552. I think what makes ‘Jeopardy!’ special is that, among all the quiz and game shows out there, ours tends to encourage learning.
  553. I think what you’re seeing is a profound recognition on the part of the American people that gays and lesbians and transgender persons are our brothers, our sisters, our children, our cousins, our friends, our co-workers, and that they’ve got to be treated like every other American. And I think that principle will win out.
  554. I think what’s at risk is kids losing touch with being a kid. Being a kid is being defined differently than it was when you didn’t have all this stuff you could put in front of your face.
  555. I think what’s going on with gorillas is pretty bad. The fact is that you can buy gorilla meat in London any day you want it.
  556. I think what’s happening for me, it’s fun to see other things besides Facebook and Twitter take hold. The maturity of Tumblr as a real player is exciting. I think Pinterest has proved to be a major player. It’s fun to see Instagram become a major player. It’s fun to watch things like SnapChat, and Vine, try to vie to be the next thing.
  557. I think what’s interesting about the whole paparazzi thing is that unless you’re Brad Pitt or Madonna, you can pretty much avoid it. You know when you’re going to an opening that you will be photographed, so that’s fine. And you know the restaurants that have paparazzi, so you don’t go to them.
  558. I think when a lot of actors hear improv, they think of throwing a line in or doing a slightly different take.
  559. I think when actors run away from their work that they’re slightly crazy, really!
  560. I think when I was pretty young I got really into the tone of my instrument and I remember just playing one note for an hour to just kind of feel the resonance of the violin.
  561. I think when I was younger I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to act, so I played around with a few different ideas. I wasn’t sure whether I might want to write or whether I might want to do something in fashion.
  562. I think when smallpox was eliminated, the whole world got pretty excited about that because it’s just such a dramatic success.
  563. I think when the competitions come, I am always ready to go. I don’t think I ever have not been.
  564. I think when the people in Burma stop thinking about whether or not they’re free, it’ll mean that they’re free.
  565. I think, when you are growing up, you have to pull apart from what your mother wants or needs. You’ve got to go your own way, and that’s what I did.
  566. I think when you have lawyers arguing over whether you can keep a detainee at 46 degrees… for two hours, that’s not torture. It may be unpleasant, it may be coercive… but let’s say what torture actually is, and that’s not it.
  567. I think when you spread the wealth around it’s good for everybody.
  568. I think when you take away all, like, the premieres and press stuff and all the special effects, then you just come down to the fact that it’s all about acting, and I think that has been the best bit for me.
  569. I think when you turn 50 you get a little melancholic in a way.
  570. I think when you’re a bigger star you get many good scripts sent to you, and you have to choose which one you’re going to gravitate toward, but I just try to gravitate toward the best-written one that’s been thrown my way after a lot of girls have passed on it.
  571. I think when you’re acting, you usually don’t have to know too much beyond how to pronounce the words you’re saying.
  572. I think when you’re at your best as an actor, it is cathartic.
  573. I think whenever any guys come along they’re intimidated, and they don’t really talk that much unless I talk to them.
  574. I think whenever people talk about the ‘Anna Sui woman,’ they’re talking about someone that’s probably kind of more downtown, and there’s always like this ambiguity: Is she a good girl, or a bad girl?
  575. I think, whenever you’re in the public eye, you’re never going to be loved by everybody.
  576. I think where political issues invade moral situations, spiritual leaders have to speak out.
  577. I think whether you’re having setbacks or not, the role of a leader is to always display a winning attitude.
  578. I think while all mothers deal with feelings of guilt, working mothers are plagued by guilt on steroids!
  579. I think, with Hank Paulson, the concept of a bailout was anathema to him from day one. He was a Republican; he’s a free marketeer. He believes in capitalism, and part of capitalism is believing in failure. And so the idea of bailing out an institution, I think, went against every part of him.
  580. I think with the Romans, that the general of today should be a soldier tomorrow if necessary.
  581. I think women and children and older people are the three least-respected groups in our society.
  582. I think women have an innate ability to be intuitive with people that they truly love, but they have to trust that inner voice, and I think it is there. I think we are more intuitive than men.
  583. I think women should be more independent. In society, we’re portrayed as people who simply wear make-up and sit around. We need a Princess Charming – a woman who rescues her man and slays the dragon instead of the other way round.
  584. I think worrying things are going on in England – a real apathy.
  585. I think writing really helps you heal yourself. I think if you write long enough, you will be a healthy person. That is, if you write what you need to write, as opposed to what will make money, or what will make fame.
  586. I think yoga has given me better posture. People don’t realise how strong it makes you. You have to use your body weight to hold yourself. As you get older, you’re supposed to lift weights, but I find that kind of boring. Yoga is lifting my own body.
  587. I think you achieve a lot more through love than negativity.
  588. I think you are who you are, and your kids will see who you are. So you’d better be a good person, because they are going to see it, and that’s going to shape them. They are going to become you.
  589. I think you can be as big as you like as long as you mean it. I really do.
  590. I think you can judge from somebody’s actions a kind of a stability and sense of purpose perhaps created by strong religious roots. I mean, there’s a certain patience, a certain discipline, I think, that religion helps you achieve.
  591. I think you get most of the most interesting work done in fields where people don’t think they’re doing art but are merely practicing a craft and working as good craftsmen. Being literate as a writer is good craft, is knowing your job, is knowing how to use your tools properly and not to damage the tools as you use them.
  592. I think you have a lot of really good artists today. You have your Beyonce, Usher, Nicki Minaj and the like. But our generation, the artists were stronger. You’re talking about myself, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Roberta Flack, Gladys Knight, The Temptations, The Four Tops.
  593. I think you have to be in an insane stratosphere in terms of fame in order to get offered really well-written scripts. Amanda Peet is definitely not in that group.
  594. I think you have to be in the right place at the right time. And understand that and know when it is your time and how you react to it and how you respond to it.
  595. I think you have to be yourself, and you have to be real and you have to admit what you don’t know, and talk about what you do know, and talk about what you don’t know as long as you say you don’t know it.
  596. I think you have to deal with grief in the sense that you have to recognize that you have it, and say that it’s OK to have all the sadness.
  597. I think you have to plan ahead. When I go to the market on a Saturday, and I’m buying for family and friends, I’m thinking about what I’m going to eat on the weekend but also about what I’m going to make for the following week.
  598. I think you kind of have to put yourself out there.
  599. I think you need to be intentional at times about your leadership – where you’re eating lunch, who you’re interacting with, making guys feel like you’re interested in what they’re doing. If it’s authentic, then it’s going to be an easy conversation and easy hangout time.
  600. I think you only learn what kind of personality you have by committing to things.
  601. I think you should always bear in mind that entropy is not on your side.
  602. I think you sort of shed skins as you go along in life. You get into your 40s, and you feel like, ‘OK, no more pretending.’ You get to just be who you are.
  603. I think you tell the story that has to be told. You tell the story that’s the truth. You tell the story that readers will be interested in and should know about.
  604. I think your first gut feeling is the correct feeling.
  605. I think your values are always influenced by your family and your community.
  606. I thought foolishly that Freudian psychoanalysis was deeper and more intensive than other, more directive forms of therapy, so I was trained in it and practiced it.
  607. I thought I knew Texas pretty well, but I had no notion of its size until I campaigned it.
  608. I thought I was clever enough to write as well as these people and I didn’t realize that there is something called originality and your own voice.
  609. I thought I was going to be on Broadway. I thought, ‘I’m going to do theater.’
  610. I thought I was gonna be an attorney, so I went to Dartmouth and I was a government major and I minored in environmental policy, and I didn’t do anything academically around the arts.
  611. I thought I was half white or something because I only know white people as Ferguson as their last name.
  612. I thought I would attend school and get an assistant position and work my way up but being in NY and seeing the pace of everything, is very inspiring.
  613. I thought I would be governor of Massachusetts. I stood on a pile of my old albums and said, ‘I’m the only one with a record to stand on.’
  614. I thought I would dress in baggy pants, big shoes, a cane and a derby hat. everything a contradiction: the pants baggy, the coat tight, the hat small and the shoes large.
  615. I thought, If people are going to write about what I’m wearing, then I would wear young British designers who need the publicity.
  616. I thought it completely absurd to mention my name in the same breath as the presidency.
  617. I thought, ‘It doesn’t matter what that woman is wearing,’ but then I realised actually it’s our job as designers to make women smile; to bring them the chocolate without the calories.
  618. I thought it’d be cool to start my own university, in a way.
  619. I thought ‘Out of Africa’ would be a beautiful ballet.
  620. I thought perhaps it should be recognized that religious people, including fundamentalists, are quite intelligent, many of them are highly educated, and they should be treated with complete respect.
  621. I thought that I wrote songs and wrote music, and that was sort of what I thought I was best at doing. And because nobody else was ever doing my songs, I felt – you know, I had to go out and do them.
  622. I thought that the chief thing to be done in order to equal boys was to be learned and courageous. So I decided to study Greek and learn to manage a horse.
  623. I thought the Bush economic policy was a disaster. We lost 500,000 private sector jobs during his tenure.
  624. I thought the more famous I became, the more friendships I would have, but the opposite was true.
  625. I thought The Shining was just absolutely wonderful. Stephen King reaches all kinds of people. In the beginning he was just dismissed out of hand, which was terrible.
  626. I thought when I started meditation that I was going to get real calm and peaceful and it’s going to be over. It’s not that way; it’s so energetic. That’s where all the energy and creativity is.
  627. I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn’t even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I’d found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged.
  628. I threw my cup away when I saw a child drinking from his hands at the trough.
  629. I throw 14 parties a week.
  630. I told jokes badly.
  631. I told my parents I wanted to be an actress years before I wrapped my head around what my dad did for a living. It’s not easy to explain the job of the television journalist, especially when a lot of my friends’ dads had jobs that were a lot easier to explain, like a lawyer, a banker or a doctor.
  632. I told Warren if he mentions Prop. 13 one more time, he has to do 500 push-ups.
  633. I told you I’m not going to criticize my successor. I’ll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don’t believe that persuasion isn’t going to work. Therapy isn’t going to cause terrorists to change their mind.
  634. I took a test once; they said I was a genius.
  635. I took a whole stunt course and pretty much got certified as a stunt driver. It’s ridiculous how easy it is once you understand the car and know how to do it.
  636. I took Meisner for a long time. I use a lot of sense memory and, well, I wouldn’t say Method, but I can’t really avoid getting into character.
  637. I took the Canal Zone and let Congress debate; and while the debate goes on, the canal does also.
  638. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth, environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.
  639. I took the name Green Destiny from – well there is such a sword called Green Destiny. It is green because you keep twisting it, it’s an ancient skill, you keep twisting it and knocking it and twisting it until it is very elastic and light.
  640. I totally disagree with the view that the Tibet struggle will die, and there will be no hope for Tibet, after the Dalai Lama passes away.
  641. I totally have the ability to laugh at myself. I don’t think one should take oneself seriously, ever. As long as you are not hurting my sentiments by revealing personal details or talking badly about my family, I’m absolutely fine.
  642. I train and I go home, and when I’m home, I think about training. That’s my life every day, and that’s it.
  643. I trained myself, whenever I walk into auditions, to hate everyone in the room.
  644. I trained with a few Olympic runners and jumpers. Just to try to get a little bit faster, a little bit better. Anything I could do to try to get a little bit better and stay ahead of the competition.
  645. I travel all over the country making speeches for people I believe in.
  646. I travel the world, and I can see in Toronto the cooking is very personal. These people cook with their hearts.
  647. I traveled enormously during the 1960’s, when you measured everything by where you traveled and what you did as travelers.
  648. I treat everybody equal, and so I want to be sure that my listeners and my followers do the same if they’re gonna represent me. And if I’m gonna represent them, then I also want to do it in a good way.
  649. I treat my acting career with a lot of respect.
  650. I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.
  651. I tried acting, liked it, and stuck with it. I saw it as the way I would keep that promise to myself of getting back at those who had made my school life a misery.
  652. I tried being reasonable, I didn’t like it.
  653. I tried. But not everybody thought so.
  654. I tried out for my basketball team every year and I never made it. You had to buy the shoes before you knew if you were on the team because it took a few weeks for them to ship. I bought the shoes every year, never once made the team, had a ton of high school basketball shoes.
  655. I tried snowboarding at 14, and I absolutely fell in love with it. I snowboarded every day off I had, every weekend I had off of school, every holiday we had off from school, and it became a huge part of my life, not just what I love to do, but really just kind of who I was.
  656. I tried to do things independently with each child.
  657. I tried to drown my sorrows, but the bastards learned how to swim, and now I am overwhelmed by this decent and good feeling.
  658. I tried to fit it in with some previous broad conceptual understanding of some part of mathematics that would clarify the particular problem I was thinking about.
  659. I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won. I found that while the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!
  660. I tried to tell them about the dating process because I’m single now and how horrible it is and how many foolish experiences I had had dating. So I was really selling him hard, but the whole time he really wanted me!
  661. I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.
  662. I truly believe the art’s larger than the artist. Who cares about John Steinbeck? I care about the Joad family.
  663. I trust my government. I actually have a trust for my government with my data, and I trust them to protect me. They’ve protected me – they’ve made the best efforts to protect me my whole life.
  664. I trust myself. I trust my instincts. I know what I’m gonna do, what I can do, what I can’t do. I’ve been through a lot, and I could go through more, but I hope I don’t have to. But if I did, I’d be able to do it. I’m not going to enjoy dying, but there’s not much prep for that.
  665. I trust that McDonald’s can find a way to sell all-natural chicken without raising their prices; we did that at Shake Shack. It is more expensive, and we took a slight margin hit, but we did it. And if we can do it, I know that much bigger companies can.
  666. I try and work out at least six times a week with my trainer because that’s important for my body type, which is so different from a typical Indian boy.
  667. I try not to date where I work. It makes life easier. I don’t say no to anybody because I’d hope that people wouldn’t say no to me just because I’m an actor – but they’d have to be pretty extraordinary.
  668. I try not to do anything that’s immoral.
  669. I try not to get trapped in any one musical or visual style at all.
  670. I try not to go around looking like a hag.
  671. I try really hard not to be attached to success.
  672. I try to always have a hair cut that I don’t have to style every day, so I’ll usually just let my hair air dry.
  673. I try to avoid hairspray, gel, and heat as much as I can – I will use a pomade or a very heavy conditioner to style it the way that I want it.
  674. I try to avoid wearing black because sometimes it’s the easy option. But I’m young, so it’s nice to be able to play with color and not just wear black all the time. I can save that for when I’m older.
  675. I try to be an honest originalist! I will take the bitter with the sweet!
  676. I try to be feminist in, like, I love myself and I don’t need someone else’s approval.
  677. I try to be really hippie about things. I’m uptight in all the ways that are really important, but the things my husband and family can benefit from my uptightness, I’m completely lacking.
  678. I try to be respectful about getting an honor or recognition, but I don’t really know what the Rock Hall actually is. In my experience with the people who run it, I don’t see it having to do with anything other than them making money.
  679. I try to be the same person I was yesterday.
  680. I try to be very much in control when it comes to work. I have a strong work ethic.
  681. I try to build a full personality for each of our cartoon characters – to make them personalities.
  682. I try to deign golf courses that are individual in character and individual in their own standing.
  683. I try to do more intelligent roles, unusual roles, and stronger women, and that’s helped me a little bit with my casting opportunities.
  684. I try to do things in comics that cannot be repeated by television, by movies, by interactive entertainment.
  685. I try to eat fruit and veggies and meat and all the different categories and have a well rounded diet.
  686. I try to explore, in terms of the life I know best, those things which are common to all cultures.
  687. I try to find some time for my horses. I began when I was a child, because I was born and grew up in a little village. And many people ride the horses. So, it was a big – it has been a big passion for me.
  688. I try to get away from the pits as quickly as I can. I speak to my engineer when I get out of the car, usually there’s some press to do, then I will go off and have a shower and get my dry, clean overalls and clothing on. I’ll have a massage, stretch and something to eat. I don’t sleep, but I try to close my eyes for a while.
  689. I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn’t touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
  690. I try to go out for everything. I go out for any acting stuff that comes up, and voice-over stuff.
  691. I try to go throughout my daily life just as if nothing has changed, but you don’t have much anonymity anymore, which feels really good. People come up, and say hi and they enjoy your work.
  692. I try to indulge my muse whenever I am able to get away from it all.
  693. I try to keep a low profile in general. Not with my art, but just as a person.
  694. I try to keep it real. I don’t have time to worry about what I’m projecting to the world. I’m just busy being myself.
  695. I try to keep my integrity. I don’t want to be in ‘Hello!’ or on ‘Celebrity Big Brother.’
  696. I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That’s where the fun is.
  697. I try to make good decisions as decisions come up.
  698. I try to not go, ‘I’m writing a pop song.’ Music is inherently genre-bending.
  699. I try to please everyone.
  700. I try to push myself a little every day. For me, it’s doing 10 more seconds of whatever I’m working on. So if I’m on the treadmill sprinting my butt off or doing a grueling core workout, I think to myself, ‘You can do 10 more seconds, and you’ll be that much mentally stronger.’ After a while, those 10 seconds add up!
  701. I try to really capitalize off of what other rappers really can’t do. There are opportunities that rappers I love simply can’t get, because… you know… I don’t have the tattoos; I have a different image.
  702. I try to see the good in everybody, and I don’t care who people are as long as they’re themselves, whatever that is.
  703. I try to sit still for about 15 minutes each morning without making lists or running in overdrive.
  704. I try to stay low-carb and high on lean protein. I’m lucky in that I love chicken and rice; it’s one of my favorite meals. I steam some vegetables and top them with olive oil for some flavor.
  705. I try to stay out of the spotlight as much as humanly possible, because I think that when actors, whether or not they’ve chosen it or it has been thrust upon them, are living very public lives, it affects your ability to get lost in their performances.
  706. I try to talk about things I know about. But my characters are more of a combination of people or how I imagine people would feel.
  707. I try to teach my heart not to want things it can’t have.
  708. I try to teach my kids to be open.
  709. I try to tell the best story, and the story that has some heart and some genuine terror and some social commentary and some comedy and some romance and some sex and some violence.
  710. I try to treat all the money I’m making like it’s the last time I’m going to make it.
  711. I try to very hard to avoid a situation where I would be eating cat or dog; I’ve managed to gracefully avoid that. It’s hypocritical of me and an arbitrary line, but one that I have managed to avoid crossing.
  712. I try to write in the mornings, as soon as I’m up and caffeinated, and to stay in the chair as long as I can be productive.
  713. I try to write the books I would love to come upon that are honest, concerned with real lives, human hearts, spiritual transformation, families, secrets, wonder, craziness – and that can make me laugh.
  714. I turned popular music on the radio, and I never listened to it again after that, in about 1985. That’s when I switched over to classical music, and I pretty much stayed with that since then.
  715. I tweet 15 times a day to keep my brain stimulated.
  716. I typically do the opposite of what people think I am going to do.
  717. I understand a ship to be made for the carrying and preservation of the cargo, and so long as the ship can be saved, with the cargo, it should never be abandoned. This Union likewise should never be abandoned unless it fails and the possibility of its preservation shall cease to exist, without throwing passengers and cargo overboard.
  718. I understand everybody in this country doesn’t agree with the decisions I’ve made. And I made some tough decisions. But people know where I stand.
  719. I understand how every healthy child, every new road, puts a country on a better path, but instability and war will arise from time to time, and I’m not an expert on how you get out of those things.
  720. I understand our audience loves to see some drama on TV, but even they have got bored with similar patterns of carrying out reality singing shows.
  721. I understand Sean Penn. He has every right to look for El Chapo.
  722. I understand that it’s good tactics to categorize me as a close-minded, unobjective extremist, but nobody that respects me has those views.
  723. I understand that people talk, and frankly, I can’t control that. There’s no point in getting upset over a thing that you can’t control. You just have to let it go.
  724. I understand that ups and downs in life keep wavering, and it’s important to understand them and why they happen. So I learn whatever I have to and then move forward.
  725. I understand the importance of bondage between parent and child.
  726. I understand the military. I know the military.
  727. I understand what it is for a woman to want to protect their children and give them the best they can.
  728. I understand why people might be interested. But I just don’t talk about my personal life. It’s a decision I made a long time ago, before I ever even knew anyone would be interested in my personal life.
  729. I understand why people went nuts for ‘The Artist.’ We use words so much, it’s nice to be able to explore a different way of communication, to be able to express silently what someone – or something – is thinking or feeling.
  730. I understood at a very early age that in nature, I felt everything I should feel in church but never did. Walking in the woods, I felt in touch with the universe and with the spirit of the universe.
  731. I use a lot of different words for God – infinite intelligence, primordial, perfection or universal creativity. All of these, to me, are God. And ‘God’ is a word, I think, that some people feel uncomfortable with, so they can use another word, you know? It’s the great mystery.
  732. I use Johnson & Johnson! I use their baby oil gel.
  733. I use Kerastase Oleo-Relax when I get out of the shower. It saves my hair. Actually, I’ve been doing this Brazilian treatment to my hair. It’s a lifesaver; I don’t even use a straightener anymore.
  734. I use only men’s perfumes. I change my perfumes every month.
  735. I use Pureology Shampoo and Conditioner, and after shampooing, I’ll put the conditioner on, go watch a movie, and wash it out later. When you have black girl hair, once we wash, we’ve gotta do the whole press and get in the edges and everything. That’s a lot of heat to go back to straight on a daily basis.
  736. I use the exercise room early, because I don’t want to get on the treadmill and everyone’s going ‘Oh, Bill Cosby,’ and then they come around to see how fast I’m walking, and it becomes very competitive.
  737. I use this GPB glycogen protein balancing conditioner by Aubrey Organics that I love.
  738. I use this method to bring emotion into my performance. I recite my lines in English first, and then switch back to the original lines when shooting begins.
  739. I used a lot of sports psychologists when I was younger… sometimes it helped, sometimes it didn’t.
  740. I used my captors’ names every chance I had. It was intentional, a way of reminding them that I saw them, of pegging them, of making them see me in return.
  741. I used the so-called Laffer Curve all the time in my classes and with anyone else who would listen to me to illustrate the trade-off between tax rates and tax revenues.
  742. I used to always sing my way into the movies and the basketball games or whatever. I’d sing for whoever’s on the door, and they’d let me in. I used to think I was Nat King Cole back in the day, you know. So I’d sing something like, ‘Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you,’ and they’d let me in.
  743. I used to always sit in church looking out the windows at the boys, wondering if I could make an excuse to go out and, you know, go to the bathroom because all the outdoor toilets. But anyhow, I was only going out to see the boys.
  744. I used to be a Catholic. I left because I object to conversion by concussion. If you don’t agree with what they teach, you get clobbered over the head until you do. All that does is change the shape of the head.
  745. I used to be a daredevil on BMX bikes.
  746. I used to be a Democrat, now I’m basically a Republican.
  747. I used to be a great fan of doing crosswords. When you’re fiddling around with anagrams, you get wonderful jumbles of syllables that become interesting.
  748. I used to be a shopper before I had children. I’d go to Bergdorf and Barneys all the time. But now my weekends are spent differently. I go to the skating rink or the park, not the stores.
  749. I used to be an amateur inventor when I was a kid; I’m always inventing something.
  750. I used to be homophobic, but as I got older, I realized that wasn’t the way to do things. I don’t discriminate against anybody for their sexual preference, for their skin color… that’s immature.
  751. I used to be like everyone else and think the Kardashians are just famous for being famous. But I’ve been really impressed with how supportive Kim Kardashian has been of Caitlyn Jenner.
  752. I used to be naive. I didn’t realize the value of being a whole performer… People start to care about you when they know more about you and see different aspects of your personality.
  753. I used to be obsessed about how I presented myself. I didn’t want other people dressing me because I didn’t want to be treated like a clothes horse.
  754. I used to be scared of women. When I was very young they terrified me, but discovering the female universe was incredible and still is to this day, as you never stop learning about them.
  755. I used to beat myself up about weight and working out, and no matter what I did I never felt good about myself. I decided to accept myself and know that I am good.
  756. I used to believe that love was finding someone who would lead you through the deep water.
  757. I used to chop up C-Span soundbites or interviews with politicians like John Kerry or Bill Clinton into a radio-esque show hosted by Awkwafina and her producer, Mookie. I would pitch down my vocals to have male guests and would send them to a small circle of friends after they were done.
  758. I used to do calligraphy, and I’m afraid that has lapsed, but I’ve always been interested in book printing.
  759. I used to do design before I was actually rapping. I went to art and design high school.
  760. I used to dress up in my older sister Alisia’s clothes and thought modelling would be fun.
  761. I used to drink. I didn’t like reading, but I discovered the benefits of it. I read that Floyd Mayweather never drinks – and he is the blueprint for boxing.
  762. I used to eat a whole chicken, every day, for lunch. I did that for four years. But it got tiring – go to the store, buy it, eat it. It’s a mess.
  763. I used to empty the studio out and throw stuff away. I now don’t. There will be a whole series of dead ends that a year or two down the line I’ll come back to.
  764. I used to exercise an hour every day – no excuses. I live in absolutes: I either exercise every day, or I let myself off the hook. I’m trying to find that balance of working out three or four days a week and sticking to it.
  765. I used to get into a lot of fights.
  766. I used to get my hair dyed at a place called Big Hair. It cost $15. They just used straight bleach, so my hair was the color of white lined paper, and my eyebrows looked like they were done with a thick black marker.
  767. I used to get the feeling, and sometimes I still get it, that sometimes I was fooling somebody; I don’t know who or what, maybe myself.
  768. I used to get tired of drinking iced tea, so I’d ask my wife if we had some lemonade, and I would just dump it right in there.
  769. I used to go away for weeks in a state of confusion.
  770. I used to go to Saks, I would go to Bergdorf, I would go to Barneys, I would go to thrift stores in SoHo.
  771. I used to go to the U.S. Open on my birthdays and sit in the nosebleeds.
  772. I used to hate L.A., but I met such a great group of people there that I fell in love with it.
  773. I used to hate looking in the mirror. I’ve grown up into myself and now I’m happy with the way I look.
  774. I used to have a lot of philosophies of acting; they all fell apart over the years.
  775. I used to have a lot of superstitions, and then I realized that it was kind of hogwash. Once I let go of them, I relaxed a lot.
  776. I used to have a voice because I was interviewing people and writing, but as soon as I got swept up in the fashion world, I was just a pretty girl at a party wearing a pretty dress.
  777. I used to have hamburgers coming and going, especially when I was on the road. Now, occasionally I will still have that quarter pounder because I love fast food, but you have to keep it to a minimum. I am now opting for salads and just healthier lunches.
  778. I used to have nightmares about the civil war when I got to England at ages 14 to 15. It took me some years to get over that.
  779. I used to have the same lunch every day, for 20 years, I guess, the same thing over and over again.
  780. I used to hear a lot that all I could do was hit a serve, I couldn’t volley, I can’t hit a backhand, I don’t return well, and then people would turn round and tell me I’m underachieving.
  781. I used to listen to ‘Ready to Die’ around the time I dropped out of college. I was scrambling for work and money.
  782. I used to live in Chris Rock’s former apartment. I’ve got some junk mail for him if he wants it.
  783. I used to live in Pillgwenlly, and there was this old Italian pizzeria that used to be there with a really amazing character who ran it.
  784. I used to live on one candy bar a day – it cost a nickel. I always remember the candy bar was called Payday. That was my payday. And that candy bar tasted so good, at night I would take one bite, and it was so beautiful.
  785. I used to look back at pictures and cringe but actually I’m quite proud that I’ve had fun with fashion and don’t always look perfect. The only regret I have is when I look at something I wore when I was very young and it obviously looks like it belonged to someone else.
  786. I used to love a well-arranged room: the furniture, the fabric, the lighting.
  787. I used to love to untangle chains when I was a child. I had thin, busy fingers, and I never gave up. Perhaps there was a psychiatric component to my concentration but like much of my psychic damage, this worked to everyone’s advantage.
  788. I used to meditate all the time in bed. That was when I was raising my daughter, and I’d get her up and off to school, and then I would go back to bed and meditate. And then I would do the same in the evening, and that was very good for that period because I had so many things to juggle as a single mother.
  789. I used to not want to die in any way but in my sleep when I was a young man. I’d like to die awake now, if possible, with people around me who love me.
  790. I used to play golf. I wanted to be a better player, but after a while, I realized I’d always stink. And that’s when I really started to enjoy the game.
  791. I used to pretend that my Peugeot driving to the gym in the rain in Dublin was a Ferrari on the Vegas strip.
  792. I used to read five psalms every day – that teaches me how to get along with God. Then I read a chapter of Proverbs every day and that teaches me how to get along with my fellow man.
  793. I used to read science fiction a lot, and I still like science fiction when it is a model of how we really are and to see ourselves from another perspective.
  794. I used to refer to myself as a ‘theoretical anorexic,’ just as crazy when it came to body image, but saved by a lack of self-discipline. My daughters do everything better than I do – they’re smarter, more beautiful, happier. What if they end up better at anorexia, too?
  795. I used to run track in high school and was unexceptional in every way.
  796. I used to say my biggest accomplishment was just getting drafted, whether it was the first pick or the 100th or whatever.
  797. I used to sing at funeral homes for families that didn’t have a vocalist. I didn’t get paid. I needed to sing.
  798. I used to sing songs and write with my uncle, Bill Owens.
  799. I used to soak my mitts in a bucket of water for about two days. Then I’d put a couple of baseballs in the pocket and wrap it up with a rubber band. Today you don’t have to do that, because catchers’ mitts are more like first baseman’s gloves.
  800. I used to spend hours just sitting in an old wreck of a car with a stickshift; I’d just sit there and shift.
  801. I used to tease Joe Louis by reminding him that I was the greatest of all time. But Joe Louis was the greatest heavyweight fighter ever.
  802. I used to tell my husband that, if he could make me ‘understand’ something, it would be clear to all the other people in the country.
  803. I used to tell my writing students that they must write the books they wished they could come upon – because then the books they hungered and thirsted for would exist.
  804. I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night, ‘There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me dreaming of being a movie star.’ But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest.
  805. I used to think information was destroyed in black hole. This was my biggest blunder, or at least my biggest blunder in science.
  806. I used to think that everything was just being funny but now I don’t know. I mean, how can you tell?
  807. I used to think that guys preferred tall women. But plenty of them like short girls.
  808. I used to think that I wanted to be a hat maker, but I don’t think that would have worked out.
  809. I used to think that losing made you more hungry and determined but after my success at the Olympics and the U.S. Open I realise that winning is the biggest motivation.
  810. I used to think that my mother got into arguments with people because they didn’t understand her English, because she was Chinese.
  811. I used to watch the world as if it was a performance and I would realize that certain things that people did moved me, and certain things didn’t move me, and I tried to analyze, even at that age, six and seven and eight, why I was moved by certain things they did.
  812. I used to wear disguises, like hats and false beards, just to walk around and avoid attention.
  813. I used to wish there was a useful term for those of us who thought American power should be used to remove psychopathic dictators.
  814. I used to work over a bar. That was – there was no stage. I stood over a tiny bar. Louis Prima, rest his soul, he worked there. I was the guy that filled in when he was off the stage.
  815. I used to work with mentally disabled people when I was 18 or 19, changing diapers and catheters. I was working, like, 16 hour night shifts, having to distribute meds and go capture people who would break out of the house. Sometimes they’d have seizures, and we’d have to rush them to the hospital. That was an interesting time, very humbling.
  816. I used to worry that if I wasn’t having a dynamic life, then I wouldn’t have anything to talk about.
  817. I used to write in a room overlooking the valley from where I could see too much, whether checking the sheep and alpacas or seeing the trout rise on the lake.
  818. I usually can find a way to do a character to make it real and work. But sometimes it’s a struggle sustaining that, because there’s such a level of personal involvement and personal, physical, and emotional distraughtness.
  819. I usually describe myself as an engineer; that’s basically what I’ve been doing since I was a kid.
  820. I usually get up at 3 A.M. I don’t require a lot of sleep, and if I get tired, I’ll take a powernap during the day.
  821. I usually keep my personal style simple and streamlined. I like classic colors like black, white, and beige. White and black is my favorite color combination, and I like to finish up my look with an accent of gold jewelry.
  822. I usually make films with $2 and a paper clip.
  823. I usually refer to myself as Hispanic.
  824. I usually sit around with the guitar in reach and grab it when I get an idea. Sometimes it lasts five minutes, and sometimes it lasts all day.
  825. I usually start my day when my kids wake up.
  826. I usually try on at least 20 pairs of jeans before I find something that looks good on me. And even then, I have a trustworthy friend tell me if my butt looks big!
  827. I usually work on a film soundtrack for two years, turning in a song every few months, and that keeps my creative energy high, because I’m constantly rotating projects. The trick is to make sure I don’t work too hard and get exhausted.
  828. I usually write lyrics first, and then when I get home or close to any kind of instrument, I usually make a melody for those lyrics.
  829. I venture to say no war can be long carried on against the will of the people.
  830. I very much dislike the intolerance and moralism of many Christians, and feel more sympathy with Honest Doubters than with them.
  831. I very much enjoyed doing ‘Law & Order,’ playing a killer – that was fun, and they had a family feel around the set, so it was a happy show to do even though the subject matter was quite the opposite.
  832. I very much favor democracy, but when there is a contradiction between democratic and Jewish values, the Jewish and Zionist values are more important.
  833. I very rarely read any fiction. I love biographies; I read about all kinds of people. I love theology and some philosophy.
  834. I very rarely think in words at all. A thought comes, and I may try to express it in words afterwards.
  835. I vividly remember the stories my grandfather told me about the carnage of the First World War, which people tend to forget was one of the worst massacres in human history.
  836. I vote and I do jury duty.
  837. I waited for my daughter, Billie, to come to me with her troubles – but I’m glad I didn’t hold my breath.
  838. I wake up every day inspiring myself, because God gave me life.
  839. I wake up every morning at nine and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up.
  840. I wake up every morning, look in the mirror and ask, ‘Am I a sex symbol?’ Then I go back to bed again. It’s stupid to think that way.
  841. I wake up every morning thinking I need to be edgier.
  842. I wake up in the morning and my heart is light, man. It’s not heavy. I don’t have skeletons in the closet on their way out.
  843. I wake up in the morning and my mind starts making sentences, and I have to get rid of them fast – talk them or write them down.
  844. I wake up very early in the morning. I like to start in the dark, and I never work at night, because my brain is evaporated by 4 P.M.
  845. I walk tall; I got a tall attitude.
  846. I walked out of class one day and I never went back.
  847. I wanna do a song with Adele! Nobody gets Adele as a feature, so maybe I can. I hope she knows who I am!
  848. I wanna thank Biggie Smalls, Redman, Jadakiss, Tupac and Michael Jackson for being my theme music throughout my career.
  849. I wanna thank MTV and the VMAs for choosing me to be a part of the show because, on this show, if you not an icon or upcomin’ icon, you’re not on the show, you know?
  850. I want a permanent relationship, and I might feel inclined to reject anything which of its nature could not be permanent.
  851. I want all my films to do well.
  852. I want all of my films to belong to me.
  853. I want all this loud profanity in the street stopped. I want people to think about choices.
  854. I want at least five kids. I want twins.
  855. I want every child in America to eat a nutritious, delicious, sustainably sourced school lunch for free.
  856. I want everyone to look back and think that I was awesome.
  857. I want it all: I want the attention and live for the glory nights.
  858. I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
  859. I want more girls to be able to see themselves behind the camera creating images we all enjoy, and I want to call attention to the fact that women directors are here all over the world.
  860. I want more of my favorite artists or more of the guy that makes the anthems. I want more.
  861. I want my books sold on airport bookstalls.
  862. I want my food dead. Not sick, not dying, dead.
  863. I want my girls to be strong and self-sufficient.
  864. I want my legacy to be about the soccer, and if I can help people be happier in life in any capacity, awesome.
  865. I want my music to do the explaining.
  866. I want my weekends back so I can be with my kids.
  867. I want my writing to reach people. I don’t write for a market. I write from my heart, something that appeals to me. The marketing, segmenting etc., can be done by your publisher, not you.
  868. I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.
  869. I want people to bow as they see me and say he is gifted with poetry, he has seen the presence of the creator.
  870. I want people to have a free and open voice.
  871. I want people to know my truth. Unconditional love of God and each other.
  872. I want people to know their palate is a snowflake. We all like different things. Why should we all have the same taste in wines?
  873. I want people to know where I come from. I think I have come really far from that, and I did it on my own. It’s sort of the American dream to come from absolutely nothing and to succeed while still doing something that you love. Not compromising yourself in any way. I hope I’m making Jersey proud in that way.
  874. I want people to… not be afraid of their truth.
  875. I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.
  876. I want people to say, ‘She is really sweet and kind.’ Anyone can work hard enough and be ‘pretty.’ Not many people are nice nowadays.
  877. I want people to see a real person on the ice. I want to seem tangible, hard-working, passionate about my skating, not just going out and doing something I’ve rehearsed a million times.
  878. I want people to start thinking about what it means to be HIV-positive and to ask questions about that.
  879. I want people to understand, gambling is not a bad thing if you do it within the framework of what it’s meant to be, which is fun and entertaining.
  880. I want people to understand me as a person with views, not just performing songs.
  881. I want ‘Scars to Your Beautiful’ to reach different types of women. The girl I am talking about, it’s me, it’s you – it’s every girl who has struggled with feeling not good enough. I want to talk about all the different extremes that girls go through to feel beautiful.
  882. I want someone who can trust that my big hands are going to take care of them.
  883. I want the camerawork to fit the narrative and tell the story from the point of view of the character, but sometimes, to be interacting with the sensations of the story, you almost become like a ghost, you know? Like, someone that is floating, observing, not really judging what’s going on.
  884. I want the Israeli government to be made accountable for its behaviour to the Palestinians, and I want the people of the U.S. to cease acting as if they don’t understand what is going on.
  885. I want the reader to feel something is astonishing – not the ‘what happens’ but the way everything happens. These long short story fictions do that best, for me.
  886. I want the State of Israel to remain a Zionist, Jewish and democratic state. There is nothing ‘far’ or ‘ultra’ about those ideals. I also advocate the creation of a viable Palestinian state.
  887. I want the troops from Great Britain and the U.S. to be successful, but by the same token, Afghanistan has always been a screw-up.
  888. I want the world to see my body.
  889. I want the world’s data accessible.
  890. I want to appeal to everyone. Because I’m not saying I’m the best, but we the best.
  891. I want to avoid becoming too styled, too ‘done’ and too generic. You see people as they go through their career, and they just become more and more like everyone else. They start out with something individual about them, but it gets lost.
  892. I want to be a Bond girl. Think about it – I have metal components in my legs, so when I go through airport security, I set off the alarms. But when they realize why I’m beeping, they let me through. What if I had weapons in my legs? I could take one off and pull out an Uzi! Legs Galore – that would be me!
  893. I want to be a champion for a long time, and I want to take the least amount of punishment possible doing so.
  894. I want to be a dog, but I’m a pussycat.
  895. I want to be a dominant pass rusher. I think I can do that with my body type and my work ethic.
  896. I want to be a fair trader. I want to be a firm and fair trader.
  897. I want to be a machine.
  898. I want to be a man who is truthful and who won’t let pride get in the way of my ripping myself open to my partner and saying, ‘Here I am. This is me.’ I feel there’s something powerful when a man reaches a point in his life when he can be completely vulnerable.
  899. I want to be a recording artist for my whole entire life. But Broadway is something I would come back to at any given moment. I love, love, love doing theater.
  900. 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.
  901. I want to be able to look back and say that I stood where I was supposed to stand. I fought where I was supposed to fight, in the ring and out of the ring.
  902. I want to be able to speak every language. If I could have any talent and I get to choose it, and be naturally gifted and speak every language. It’s not going to happen, but it sure would be nice. It’s a good wish.
  903. I want to be all used up when I die.
  904. I want to be an artist, an actress with integrity, and that includes all kinds of parts.
  905. I want to be an artist, not… a celluloid aphrodisiac.
  906. I want to be an artist you cannot categorize at all. You can’t put a box around me. You can’t put anything around me.
  907. I want to be an expert in different fighting styles, new training methods, new ways of thinking.
  908. I want to be an old lady, with my cane, shouting, ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’
  909. I want to be fearless.
  910. I want to be financially secure by the time I have kids.
  911. I want to be great at everything. I want to be the best at everything.
  912. I want to be in a more natural state while doing acting.
  913. I want to be just a pure spiritual leader.
  914. I want to be known as A.J. Styles, the WWE Superstar that he is, and have amazing matches, make memories – I think that’s the goal.
  915. I want to be known for this character on TV two nights a week, and then I want to go away and live my life in private.
  916. I want to be like Tom Cruise from ‘The Outsiders’ and go on and do amazing movies for a long time.
  917. I want to be normal. I really want anonymity.
  918. I want to be part of great cinema. That is my only aim.
  919. I want to be perceived as a guy who played his best in all facets, not just scoring. A guy who loved challenges.
  920. I want to be remembered as a storyteller more than someone who had something meaningful to say.
  921. I want to be Robin to Bush’s Batman.
  922. I want to be the best. I want to be counted on by my teammates. I want to be counted on by this organization and the fans. I want to be someone they know is going to bring it every single week. I prepare to be the best.
  923. I want to be the bridge to the next generation.
  924. I want to be the candidate placed on the ballot by the people, not the party.
  925. I want to be the light heavyweight champion of the world.
  926. I want to be the white man’s brother, not his brother-in-law.
  927. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake.
  928. I want to be very clear: I will not sign on to any health plan that adds to our deficits over the next decade.
  929. I want to be with someone who wants to work as much as I do and who respects me like I respect him.
  930. I want to branch out. I want to write. I write poetry. I want to see my children grow up well.
  931. I want to break into the acting industry. It’s something I have a great deal of respect for; it’s a passion of mine. It’s so amazing, the differences between acting and being an athlete, but the one commonality is they both evoke emotion in the viewer. And those emotions are real. So I think that’s pretty cool.
  932. I want to continue to produce film, television, and theater, and to make the most amazing music that I’ve made in my life.
  933. I want to destroy ownership in order that possession and enjoyment may be raised to the highest point in every section of the community.
  934. I want to die with my blue jeans on.
  935. I want to do a biopic as an actor. It’s a thrill… I would love it if I am able to do a biopic.
  936. I want to do a make-up line for men.
  937. I want to do an album with Steven Seagal.
  938. I want to do lots of exciting, varied, interesting things. That’s what I want to do.
  939. I want to do movies, television and theater. Whatever comes along.
  940. I want to do stage again, because there just aren’t words for how great it is. People say that all the time, ‘There’s nothing like live theater, blah blah,’ but it’s really true. I see a show and I know how they feel, and it feels great.
  941. I want to do what I can to give the next generation of athletes added advantages in the game.
  942. I want to dunk on Kevin Hart.
  943. I want to empower women. I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.
  944. I want to empower women.
  945. I want to encourage people. One of the things I do encourage people is that – that Internet is a place where we should share our ideas and be positive, not negative.
  946. I want to feel like I’m doing something creative and trying different things, putting different hats on and playing. I don’t know what’s the point otherwise; otherwise, it’s just a job. You punch a time clock.
  947. I want to get every church in the country on Wi-Fi.
  948. I want to get to the point where one day I don’t have to have anything but a rug and a microphone stand on stage and still be able to sell out places like Madison Square Garden, like Bruce Springsteen does.
  949. I want to get violence – I want schools to start from K through 12 to just every day have teachers understand that they don’t want to talk about anything that is violent, and they want to explain to the children how bad violence is and how behavior – violent behavior, is something that they really should not practice and think about.
  950. I want to go and go, and then drop dead in the middle of something I’m loving to do. And if that doesn’t happen, if I wind up sitting in a wheelchair, at least I’ll have my high heels on.
  951. I want to go and see things as a fan again. I am a fan, but I can’t remember what it feels like to be a fan anymore. Because I’ve become an artist. I’ve become the artist.
  952. I want to go make a movie and be very present for that and give it everything I have, and after we’re done, then the rest of the time is mine.
  953. I want to go to dinner with Oprah! Who doesn’t?
  954. I want to go when I want. It is tasteless to prolong life artificially. I have done my share; it is time to go. I will do it elegantly.
  955. I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made.
  956. I want to have time for myself, my family and my friends. It’s important because in order to sing well, you must have inspiration, and inspiration comes from life, from living.
  957. I want to keep making records as long as I can, but I don’t know how long you can be taken seriously in rap.
  958. I want to keep working. I shall continue to do my best.
  959. I want to know all Gods thoughts; all the rest are just details.
  960. I want to know I made women’s soccer better than it was when I came into it.
  961. I want to know where is that committee in Switzerland that sits to decide what is in and what is out. I don’t listen to the formula makers. I think maybe I have a selective hearing disorder.
  962. I want to know why the universe exists, why there is something greater than nothing.
  963. I want to lead the pack in the process of making Indian singers bigger than actors internationally.
  964. I want to liberate my imagination and my mind with every kind of movie. That is what I wanted to do all my life.
  965. I want to link together ancient forms of storytelling and the future.
  966. I want to live a fulfilling life.
  967. I want to lose weight because I want to be focused, meaning healthy.
  968. I want to love all the children of God – Christian, Jew, Moslem, Hindu, Buddhist – everyone. I want to love gay Christians and straight Christians.
  969. I want to lower taxes for the middle class.
  970. I want to make it clear that the lobbying sector does an important job. It is very useful to the government to hear the views of a broad range of groups to make sure we get the best.
  971. I want to make my own films from my own scripts based on stories I want to tell, but they take time to put together.
  972. I want to make sure that my writing grips the reader from the word ‘go.’
  973. I want to make things equal.
  974. I want to negotiate what I’m worth. I want to put my analytics forward, man-to-man, and to be like, ‘This is what I’m owed now. Pay me.’ And then we can talk.
  975. I want to own the New York Jets, that’s what I want. And I absolutely believe I am going to own the Jets.
  976. I want to perform and be tested; I want the vibrant energy of the younger generation of directors and actors to rub off on me.
  977. I want to play a villain. I want to play a romantic heroine.
  978. I want to play basketball so bad.
  979. I want to play defense. I want to get sacks.
  980. I want to play everything. I want to be like Christian Bale: I want to be able to be Batman and then, like, his character in ‘The Fighter.’ That is what is so impressive about really good actors, that they can be character actors and leading men at the same time.
  981. I want to play for years.
  982. I want to play some really good, interesting, crazy characters. I want to take some chances. I want to take risks. I want to have fun and just keep working. That’s all I really care about.
  983. I want to poke holes in the erroneous beliefs about what fame provides. It won’t raise your self-esteem, it won’t create profound connection, it’s not going to heal your childhood traumas, it’s only going to amplify them. You’re going to be subject to a lot of criticism and praise, both of which are violent in their own ways.
  984. I want to preach till the last breath in my lungs runs out.
  985. I want to put a ding in the universe.
  986. I want to reclaim ‘liberal.’ I’m a liberal, and I think most Americans are liberals.
  987. I want to reduce my risks as much as possible and hopefully be able to go to the World Cup fit, ready and healthy.
  988. I want to reform the tax code so that it’s simple, fair, and asks the wealthiest households to pay higher taxes on incomes over $250,000 – the same rate we had when Bill Clinton was president; the same rate we had when our economy created nearly 23 million new jobs, the biggest surplus in history, and a lot of millionaires to boot.
  989. I want to see Brian Williams with no irony wearing a mustache.
  990. I want to see people turn and writhe; make them feel things they cannot see and sometimes do not know.
  991. I want to see where I measure up against everyone in the world and everyone who has ever competed in the sport, and there’s that innate sense of wanting to challenge myself. I’m competitive in all aspects.
  992. I want to show people that I am comfortable enough to go on national television and just be myself.
  993. I want to show that theater isn’t just talking about feelings or people wearing tights.
  994. I want to sit with 80- and 90-year-old people more than anyone. They have played this game before. Not one of them has told me, ‘I wish I had more money.’
  995. I want to solidify as an artist and show that as I grow as a person and make mistakes and learn from them, I’m going to grow artistically.
  996. I want to stay in some era and remain there like a stupid idiot and see what happens when you try to pause time and not affect it. Not succeed. Not try to think ahead or think behind.
  997. I want to stay involved in sports in one way or another.
  998. I want to swim in both directions at once. Desire success, court failure.
  999. I want to take my focus off myself and focus on God. It’s like setting your spiritual compass so no matter which way you turn during the day, whatever comes up, then my thoughts go back to Him and whatever He said that morning.
  1000. I want to tell people about the meaning of the cross.
