What can you conceive more silly and extravagant than to suppose a man racking his brains, and studying night and day how to fly?
I like being absurd. Being silly.
From the beginning, I've had to juggle and weigh the silly things people say - and I've learnt that they're meaningless, and they're mostly inaccurate. So I don't worry about it, because there's nothin' for me to deal with.
It's very easy for me to play silly, but to reveal something closer to you, that's so much harder.
Probably only an art-worlder like me could assign deeper meaning to something as simple and silly as Tebowing. But, to us, anytime people repeat a stance or a little dance, alone or together, we see that it can mean something. Imagistic and unspoken language is our thing.
I remember being a little kid sitting in the living room with my brother and some friends from around the neighborhood, and I would sit at the piano and as they were running around the room doing different things and being silly, acting out, I would actually play the score for it - the music that went along with it.
Every time I do something silly, it comes off really funny because it's natural.
God invented mankind because he loved silly stories.
Hopes are like hair ornaments. Girls want to wear too many of them. When they become old women they look silly wearing even one.
I'm really silly. That's the thing that people don't get.
Taraji P. Henson
People should dress the way they want. Any rules for age or shape are silly.
Sarah Jessica Parker
I was always performing, doing silly voices. The teachers realized I could go one of two ways: be creative or destructive.
My persona has always been what a man was never supposed to be. Outrageous, gregarious, crazy, silly, funny.
I noticed there were so many people, especially women, who would come up to me having recognized me from TV and say, 'I heard you were a math person, why math? Oh my gosh, I could never do math!' I could just see their self-esteem crumbling; I thought that was silly, so I wanted to make math more friendly and accessible.
Every day, my mom and I would watch a different Judy Garland VHS. I love how she tells a story when she sings. It was just about her voice and the words she was singing - no strings attached or silly hair or costumes, just a woman singing her heart out. I feel like that doesn't happen that much anymore.
It's a little silly to finally learn how to write at this age. But I long ago realized I was secretly sincere.
One of the things that is very silly - and I hear from educators all the time - is that schools essentially teach kids to learn. They don't need school for that. Learning is what they do best.
You can relax more when you're playing a silly character than when you're playing a really rigid character. But to be fair, I think George Clooney is a bigger teenager than any of the 'Twilight' cast. He's the guy throwing a football at your head and then hiding around the corner, pretending it wasn't him!
Those who claim to have had happy lives seem to be silly fools.
Even while starting out I took things very seriously; I wasn't the sort of kid that would do a doll commercial or do a series for Nickelodeon. They asked me to do silly things, and I wasn't a silly kid.
I have had time to analyze my feelings. I am certain that they are totally neurotic, sexist, silly, and a big waste of time.
I just like Forrest Gump. Maybe I'm a little smarter than him, maybe I'm not. Probably because of the whole Southern aspect of his character and for some reason I always wind up on the better end of all deals... I've just kind of got the old silly boy luck!
My first, big, silly role at school was as Arthur Crocker-Harris in Rattigan's 'The Browning Version,' where my job was to make school-masters' wives weep with recognition.
It's very hard to respect people on holiday - everybody looks so silly at the beach, it makes you hate humanity - but when you see people at their work they elicit respect, whether it's a mechanic, a stonemason or an accountant.
Alain de Botton
The idea that you can somehow erase the Internet is silly.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
