In comedy, you have to be unafraid to hang from the tree branch naked in the high wind and you have to be absolutely unafraid to look ridiculous and silly.
One of my favorites is 'The Sound of Music'. When Julie Andrews runs through the hills singing her head off, I always wish that a gust of wind would blow her skirt up.
I was just a mini-star when we did 'Gone With the Wind.'
Olivia De Havilland
I have never connected with 'Gone With the Wind.' 'Lawrence of Arabia' leaves me cold.
China has an almost infinite need for energy, and frankly, the world would be better off if much of that need goes in the direction of wind power.
I think daily that the country's future is being thrown to the wind.
The hits always wind up being the songs with big, high choruses. They're the ones too high to sing every night - not that you'll ever, ever hear me complain about having to try.
When I did Inherit the Wind, I learned about teaching school. I also found out what a fundamentalist was.
I gotta tell you, I don't have many close friends, and if I do wind up making friends with somebody, it takes me a long time, usually.
Those things interest me a lot in songwriting - the human nature of how people think, and the muck that we wind up in.
I rewrite my books many times before submitting them, and after my editor takes a look I wind up rewriting some more! It's a good thing I learned at an early age to keep on trying. Stick to it, and eventually you'll get there.
Wendelin Van Draanen
The Sixties were different in an isolated place. We got two television channels if the wind was blowing in the right direction. The radio stations went off at sundown. Then you picked up Chicago and heard the teenage music you really yearned for.
These are the stories the Dogs tell, when the fires burn high and the wind is from the north.
Clifford D. Simak
I knew it was gonna go out. It was just a question of it being fair or foul. The wind must have carried it 15 feet toward the foul pole. I just stood there and watched. I didn't want to miss seeing it go out.
There will always be ways to pay my rent, whether I wind up having to be a waitress on the side or whatever it is, but I think it's so important for me to do things that I'm passionate about.

I can feel the wind go by when I run. It feels good. It feels fast.
The writing is really hard. You're alone. It really pulls it out of you. You pull it out of your head. But when you're a director, you're shopping - you're picking this actor, you're picking this scene. It's like the most intense kinetic high-speed shopping of all time. You sit in a chair and it will all come rushing at you like a wind tunnel.
My favorite thing to do is to wind those guys up by hitting on their girlfriends. I say, 'I think your girlfriend's gorgeous, but it's all right, I'm gay.' They get very nervous after a few minutes!

Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
