Quote of the Day
I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation.
George Bernard Shaw
I went to my son's graduation this weekend, and I heard a great quote I've never heard before from Albert Einstein. It was that the greatest danger to the world is not the bad people but it's the good people who don't speak out.
For all my friends in the media who like quotes, mark this quote down. From this day on I'd like to be known as 'The Big Aristotle' because Aristotle once said, 'Excellence is not a singular act; it's a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.'
You are who you surround yourself with. I know that's such a cliche quote, but it's true.
I think that probably the - I don't give quotes to studios. They have to get those out of the paper or from television. So they wouldn't have had my quote opening day.
The right quote can inspire people to change their ways.
I've been keeping a diary for thirty-three years and write in it every morning. Most of it's just whining, but every so often there'll be something I can use later: a joke, a description, a quote. It's an invaluable aid when it comes to winning arguments. 'That's not what you said on February 3, 1996,' I'll say to someone.
Sometimes I wish my first word was 'quote,' so that on my death bed, my last words could be 'end quote.'
When I seemed to be irritable or sad, my father would quote the learned Dr. Knight, and then say, 'Just go to sleep.' Like all smart aleck kids, I thought the advice was silly. But as I've grown older, I've realized just how smart Knight was.
There's something about being any kind of entertainer that is acting. You have to put on a show. Things you wouldn't do in your life, you do on stage. You have to let go. And that's extra hard for rappers. We have a tendency to, quote unquote, keep it real. As an actor, you have to be able to humiliate yourself. Do whatever it takes.
Quote me as saying I was mis-quoted.
A quote is just a tattoo on the tongue.
William F. DeVault
My first quote was, I don't want to hurt God's people. Jim Bakker's quote was, I was set up by a female.
Often times I'm confronted with a quote that I don't remember saying. So, on one hand it's very flattering, it is just so surreal.
I often quote Ronald Reagan, who is pretty close to my favorite President ever, I will have to say that, but one of my favorite remarks he ever made was that when you look at Federal programs, there is nothing so close to eternal life on Earth as a Federal Government program.
I quote others only in order the better to express myself.
Michel de Montaigne
I always love to quote Albert Einstein because nobody dares contradict him.
You know, I always when people ask me, like, what is my most favorite song, I quote Duke Ellington, when they would ask him, what's his favorite composition? And I say, I haven't written it yet. Because, you know, there are different songs for different occasions.
The surest way to make a monkey of a man is to quote him.
In a prime-time address, President Bush said he backed limited federal funding for stem cell research. That's right, the President said, this is a quote, the research could help cure brain diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and whatever it is I have.
I'm constantly playing this game in my head where I'm thinking, 'Can this quote be pared down and misinterpreted?' It doesn't matter what outlet I'm talking to and how comprehensive the interview is, because I have to think in terms of, 'Right, but 'People' magazine could just take this one quote and take it out of context.'
I love 'Strange Brew'. I quote that movie all the time, and no one knows what I'm talking about.
'Mean Girls' is literally one of my favorite movies. It's just such a classic. Everybody has seen it, and me and my friends quote it all the time.
I can remember a reporter asking me for a quote, and I didn't know what a quote was. I thought it was some kind of soft drink.
I will watch a movie that is quote unquote dark and not get the qualification of what is dark and what is not.
The No. 1 quote critics give me is, 'Thom, your work is irrelevant.' Now, that's a fascinating, fascinating comment. Yes, irrelevant to the little subculture, this microculture, of modern art. But here's the point: My art is relevant because it's relevant to 10 million people. That makes me the most relevant artist in this culture.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
