My idol is Emile Zola. He was a man of the left, so people expected of him a kind of 'Les Miserables,' in which the underdogs are always noble people. But he went out, and found a lot of ambitious, drunk, slothful and mean people out there. Zola simply could not - and was not interested in - telling a lie.
In the end, glorification of splendid underdogs is nothing other than glorification of the splendid system that makes them so.
And in England there has always been something deeply pro-Arab, of course, not among all Englishmen, and anti-Israeli, in the establishment. They abstained in the 1947 UN partition resolution... They maintained an arms embargo against us in the 1950s... They always worked against us. They think the Arabs are the underdogs.
When we do R&B midtempos or ballads, there's an Underdogs sound.
Harvey Mason, Jr.
I chose to deal with the underdogs on '1 Train.' I could've got the biggest superstars in the rap game, but why do that when you can let the young boys shine?
I am always a sucker for the underdogs. I love Batman and Superman, but when it comes to the guys who don't stand in the front of the line, Aquaman is one of the key guys for me. He's so much fun to work on.
I'm always drawn to the underdogs, to the people whose stories don't get told.
I like underdogs, I like anti-heroes - people that have a hard time overcoming things in life.
I like to play people who are underdogs and misfits. People who are not on a straight and narrow path. That's exciting for me.
Against Juventus we were massive underdogs, so to beat them was fantastic.
I was raised to be kind. My parents were underdogs. Immigrant Jews. I spoke with an accent. I didn't speak English even - I spoke French and Yiddish mostly. I was picked on.
I love stories about misfits and underdogs.
A lot of my comic influences are distinctly American: Woody Allen and Bob Hope, for example. They were always the underdogs who were using wit to sort of battle their way through. And it seems to me that a lot of contemporary U.S. comedies are shot through with losers. None of the characters in 'The Big Bang Theory,' for instance, are studs.
A lot of my characters are underdogs or sad or lonely, but I had a comfortable, golden sort of childhood.
My mother enjoyed few things more than investing in the underdogs and showing them that they were special and could achieve their dreams.
Geoffrey S. Fletcher
I'm a sucker for any band named after a work of literature. Los de Abajo take their name from Mariano Azuela's famous novel 'The Underdogs,' and that says a lot about who they are and the music they make.
We may have limped onto Broadway as the underdogs, but underdogs bite back occasionally.
