Quote of the Day

Leonardo da Vinci
I have to have three or four books going simultaneously. If I'm not impressed in the first 20 pages, I don't bother reading the rest, especially with novels. I'm not a book-club style reader. I'm not looking for life lessons or wanting people to think I'm smart because I'm reading a certain book.
I know that I come from mid-20th century America, urban, specifically downtown New York, specifically an Italian-American area, Roman Catholic - that's who I am. And a part of what I know is there's a decency to people who tried to make a living in the kind of world that was around us and also the Skid Row area of the Bowery; it impressed me.
I'm always impressed by confidence, kindness and a sense of humour.
I have dined with kings, I've been offered wings. And I've never been too impressed.
I'm moving on. I should have made that clear when I made the announcement. I guess I wasn't clear. If people think you're leaving a show after all these years, you might be retiring. So I understand where they're coming from, but I should have impressed the fact that I hope I'm just moving on right now.
Friends are sometimes a big help when they share your feelings. In the context of decisions, the friends who will serve you best are those who understand your feelings but are not overly impressed by them.
I enjoyed 'Gossip Girl' so much. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the cast of that show. I was so intimidated doing that show because I thought, 'Oh my gosh, those people are so young and gorgeous, and I'm a million years old, and I need a spray tan, and I'm going to be wearing all these fabulous clothes.'
I was impressed by Hendrix. His attitude was brilliant. Even the way he walked was amazing.
The older I get, the more impressed I am with women. I have yet to meet a woman who is not strong. They don't exist.
Diane von Furstenberg
We must no more ask whether the soul and body are one than ask whether the wax and the figure impressed on it are one.
People are impressed with me - because I can sleep for just 45 minutes - I'm used to it.
I was very impressed with the street food of Singapore. I was very impressed with the dishes that they did.

If you start to disrespect the character you're playing, or play it too much for laughs, that can work for a sketch, it will sell some gags, but it's all technique. It's like watching a juggler - you can be impressed by it, but it's not going to touch you in any way.
And, I was really impressed with how beautiful our country was and how friendly the people were.
Duane G. Carey

Early on, I was so impressed with Charles Dickens. I grew up in the South, in a little village in Arkansas, and the whites in my town were really mean, and rude. Dickens, I could tell, wouldn't be a man who would curse me out and talk to me rudely.
I neither drink nor smoke, because my schoolmaster impressed upon me three cardinal virtues; cleanliness in person, cleanliness in mind; temperance.
Unsuccessful people are the ones who are impressed by celebrity, by people's names and titles.
Robin S. Sharma
It's a trap I've fallen into earlier in my career - trying to be liked. Don't do it. When I watch TV and I see someone trying to make me like them, acting cute or quirky or goofy, I'm not impressed. Don't act like America's watching you. Just latch onto your character. Characters are flawed. Be unlikeable. Be flawed. Be a person.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
C. S. Lewis
