Ovation Quotations

The standing ovation threw me... to be held in such regard in a town so full of talent is quite something.
Michael Caine

Every night, you fight for that standing ovation at the end of the night. And if you do something wrong, the domino effect is chaotic. And you must not allow yourself to make mistakes whatsoever. So in that case, theater, it's fascinating because of the discipline that you need.
Ricky Martin

Well, I think if more people had more applause, it would make them feel better. I often give my wife a round of applause. If the meal is very good I give her a standing ovation.
Tom Baker

I'm also getting an Ovation Legend, because I like them so much.
Mark Knopfler

I was blown away by the standing ovation. I've had tributes before, sure, but I don't retain that feeling, and I wasn't prepared for it on Tuesday. But maybe you shouldn't retain these things or you'd be on a permanent high.
Burt Bacharach
