Which Stories

All the best stories are but one story in reality - the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape.

- A. C. Benson

Exercise Feel

My goal? To test out every diet and exercise regimen on planet earth and figure out which work best. I sweated, I cooked, I learned to pole dance. In the end, I lost weight, lowered my cholesterol and doubled my energy level. I feel better than I ever have.

- A. J. Jacobs

Curiosity Natural

Human curiosity, the urge to know, is a powerful force and is perhaps the best secret weapon of all in the struggle to unravel the workings of the natural world.

Steve Jobs is the most epic entrepreneur of all time. He served as a guiding light for any emerging businessperson who wanted to learn how things should get done. He'll be looked at as one of the best business leaders of all time, and certainly one of the best tech entrepreneurs.

- Aaron Levie

About Had

It's not accidental that products get worse over time; it's because companies stop paying attention to them. They stop caring as much about maintaining the same quality they did when they were just trying to fight for survival and no one would pay attention unless they had the best technology.

- Aaron Levie

Smart Best Way

When I travel overseas on many occasions, I get pulled out because I may be buying a one-way ticket, I may be traveling with my sister and we have different last names. That's smart profiling. Just pulling people out one at a time when we have millions of passengers in random screenings I'm not sure is the best way to do it.

- Aaron Schock

Direct I Write

When I write something, I want the best director to direct it. And that's not going to be me. So when David Fincher comes along and wants to direct 'The Social Network,' when Bennett Miller comes along and wants to direct 'Moneyball,' or when Danny Boyle wants to direct 'Jobs'? Hallelujah. I want them directing it.

- Aaron Sorkin

Atmosphere Part

Movie-making is serious business. The director and the crew are already under a lot of pressure to give their best to the audience. Therefore, the best part for me as an actor is to act well in the movies and make a jolly atmosphere with the co-stars on the sets.

I still find the best way to understand a hospitalized patient whose care I am taking over is not by staring at the computer screen but by going to see the patient; it's only at the bedside that I can figure out what is important.

- Abraham Verghese

Had On And Off

The guys in my band are good friends on and off the stage. The band members that I have now is probably the best band that I have ever had.

Say Things

My best jokes are so cheap. All I do is say things sarcastically.

- Adam Brody

Sequels Mike

My favorite sequels are basically all Mike Myers films - 'Wayne's World 2,' 'Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me,' 'Shrek 2.' Anything he does, it's best the second time around. He needs to do 'So I Married an Axe Murderer 2.'

- Adam DeVine

Chance Marine Corps

I loved being in the Marine Corps, I loved my job in the Marine Corps, and I loved the people I served with. It's one of the best things I've had a chance to do.

Feel Cause

For me it's more important to look at each constituency individually and find a community I feel I can serve to the best of my abilities, and where I feel I can make a real difference, and further their cause.

- Adam Rickitt

Prefer Am

I prefer musicals, because I am the best dancer who ever lived. The best plies, the best sashays, and by far the best-smelling Capezios.

- Adam Sandler

Kid Shower

Dr. Bronner's is the best. My mom had Dr. Bronner's around since I was a little kid, and I've used it in the shower as soap ever since.

- Adam Scott

Your Buy

The Strand prides itself for its '18 miles of books,' and they are not kidding - that store goes on for da-a-a-a-ys. There are carts outside with dollar books, all sorts of fun merchandise inside, and an extensive selection of reduced priced books. If you're looking to buy a $30 hardcover for $20, The Strand is your new best friend.

- Adam Silvera

Learning Experience

The best thing we can do with rejection is to make it a learning experience - rejection is a great teacher.

Production Existence

Pressure brings out the best in me. It's the only way to keep improving: putting a bit of pressure on yourself.

College About

When you think about little league football, high school, and even on to college even more so, you're dealing with a lot of guys that are prideful, that think they're the best - a lot of alpha males. So, typically, you've got to have a guy that can control those guys, and, when he talks, they know he means business. He's a serious guy.

- Adrian Peterson

Always Bands

When I was in bands, I always liked the demo best.

Trick Immediately

A good trick I learnt early on is not to immediately look at playback because once you know the shot, you can see when the camera is on you. It's best to stay 'in it' all the time, and just if it's on you, it's on you, and if it's not, it's not. It's the easiest way.

- Aidan Turner

Give Commit

I just take on what I can commit to completely at that point in time, and that way you'll be able to give your best.

- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Advice Gotten

When I was really little, I wanted to be a wrestler so I could be like the girls I looked up to. My brother then told me that 'You don't want to be like your idols; you want to grow up and be better than them.' To this day, that's the best piece of advice I've ever gotten.

Feel Always

You always feel the drawing you are working on is the best you've ever done... I am only interested in the present.

Play Run

Carl Yastrzemski was the best all-around player. He could run, throw and hit. He had the ability to play a number of different positions. He signed as a shortstop. He could play the outfield, of course, and third base and first, too. He was a tremendous athlete. Mickey Mantle was unbelievable, too.

- Al Kaline

Your Failed

As long as you gave it your best shot, even if in the opinion of others 'you failed,' you didn't fail.

- Al Lewis

Love Very

Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.

- Al Lopez

Exercise Best Way

To exercise at or near capacity is the best way I know of reaching a true introspective state. If you do it right, it can open all kinds of inner doors.

Anybody Best Way

The best way to get anybody's attention is dinner. I have good kitchen skills and good grocery shopping skills.

- Al Roker

- Al Sharpton

Utterly Best Way

- Alan Ball

Software Appropriate

Flying in space is risky. It will never be safe, and the best thing we can do is manage those risks. It's important for people, for human beings, to be in space because they're adaptable and because they're not pre-programmed software that can go off and do tasks that are appropriate for machines.

- Alan G. Poindexter

Politics Had

The person I liked the best was Gerald R. Ford. He was the most decent man in politics I ever had any relationships with.

Always Players

What I always do is just look at the players, look at the best 11 they can put on the pitch.

- Alan Hansen

Drunk Audience

The best audience is intelligent, well-educated and a little drunk.

- Alben W. Barkley

Grades Part

When I went to acting school, the kids that got the best grades were the kids that could cry on cue. But it didn't really translate into careers for any of them, because the external is the easy part.

- Albert Brooks

Teacher University

After all manner of professors have done their best for us, the place we are to get knowledge is in books. The true university of these days is a collection of books.

Every Day Had

St. Louis is still a special place for me. I still have my home there. I live there in the offseason. I enjoyed playing in front of 40,000 people every day. I tried to do my best to help the organization win. I had success there. We won two World Series. We went to three. That's something you can't take from me.

- Albert Pujols

Protection Some

You do the best you can, looking at precedent, in trying to anticipate where the Supreme Court is going to draw the balance between the protection of civil liberties and protecting the national security, and in some cases, we guessed wrong.

- Alberto Gonzales

Considered Frequently

There's movies that I would've loved to be in that I just wasn't even considered for because they need a name. And that happens so frequently that, after a while - from a creative standpoint - you just want to be able to have that opportunity to work with the best people. That opportunity is available to you with a certain level of notoriety.

- Alden Ehrenreich

Doll Adam

Adam Lambert is one of my best friends. I've known him since he was an understudy in 'Wicked.' Such a doll.

- Alessandra Torresani

Myself Signed

When I was eight, I told my best friend I got a Hilary Duff autograph, but I just signed it myself.

- Alessia Cara

Simple About

The message films that try to be message films always fail. Likewise with documentaries. The documentaries that work best are the ones that eschew a simple message for an odd angle. I found that one of the most spectacular films about the Middle East was 'Waltz With Bashir,' or 'The Gatekeepers,' or '5 Broken Cameras.'

Songwriting Bits

Next Bring

Bring your kids along next time you go to the grocery store and ask them to help find the price per unit for the general grocery items. By comparing brands and looking for the best prices, kids will get in the habit of looking for deals and understand the value of the dollar.

- Alexa Von Tobel

Made Occupation

The best relatively contemporary portrayal of a courtesan that I've ever seen was probably in 'Children of Paradise,' a film that was made during the Nazi occupation of France, made in secret actually.

- Alexander Pope

Antiques Your

Trees are your best antiques.

If you wish to make a man look noble, your best course is to kill him. What superiority he may have inherited from his race, what superiority nature may have personally gifted him with, comes out in death.

- Alexander Smith

Heart Your

Following your heart and working really, really hard is the best thing you can do, and just try not to be too hard on yourself.

Personality Bringing

Hard conditions of life are indispensable to bringing out the best in human personality.

I Think Part

The best part of being an angel investor is seeing these kids coming up with companies that get way more traffic than Reddit had when we sold it. I think, 'Are you kidding me? They're just kids, and they've done so much.'

- Alexis Ohanian

Movie Academy Award

'Y Tu Mama Tambien' is one of the first unrated movies to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. But many video stores won't take a movie that's not rated, so I had to make the movie an R.

- Alfonso Cuaron

Aim Mankind

Wisdom alone is true ambition's aim, wisdom is the source of virtue and of fame; obtained with labour, for mankind employed, and then, when most you share it, best enjoyed.

I was brought up to believe that there is no such thing as failure as long as I'm trying my best. So I've had a 'blood, guts and glory' approach through my whole life.

- Ali Larter

Sometimes Movies

Sometimes movies really are the best medicine.

Test Prepared

As you know from school, it's when you have not prepared for the test that you have the fear of failing. And if you have prepared, even if you fail, you've done your best.

- Alice Walker

Thought Had

I once had an Early Girl tomato at my friend Jay's house, and I thought that was the best thing I'd ever had. But then I visited friends in Senegal, and I ate sea urchin pulled fresh out of the sea. It tasted like the ocean.

- Alice Waters


I don't have the best feet.

- Alicia Vikander

About Wrong Things

On-screen relationships are the best because you don't have to worry about saying the wrong things. And if the guy's got a girlfriend, or I'm not attracted to him, it's even better. It's just my character kissing his character.

- Alicia Witt

Say Nothing

You say it best, when you say nothing at all.

- Alison Krauss

Other Own

You only live once. Trying to do the right thing for other people often doesn't work out, and you have to follow your own path in order to make things work out best for everyone.

- Alison Pill

Humor Survival

Humor can be one of our best survival tools.

- Allen Klein

College Doing

I started getting Twitter followers after I started doing press for 'Fargo.' One of my best friends from college is a librarian, and she started tracking after each interview how many Twitter followers I got. She and her librarian friends were like, 'We're going to make a graph.' And I was like, 'Alright, nerds.'

- Allison Tolman

May Part

A balanced diet may be the best medicine. I was eating too much good eats. But people consider that part of your job, you know? Eat. And I do!

Being About

I'm just thinking about being the best I can be for the team first because that's what comes first.

- Aly Raisman

Enjoy Creative People

I enjoy collaborating with creative people and trying to get the best image possible to convey a feeling or story. Plus, I get flown all over the world to exotic places. How can you lose interest in that? It's a great lifestyle. I can take vacations whenever I want, and no two shoots are ever the same.

- Alyssa Sutherland

Own Some

You never know how your kids are going to turn out. You can raise them with all the best intentions, and then they're own people, and they have their own inner conflicts. You just hope you've given them some good stuff to navigate with.

- Amanda de Cadenet

Other Out

As women, we're trying to be the best mothers and partners and have careers. We're trying to do so much. It's okay to say to other women, 'How do you do this?' Because I honestly don't know. The more we are honest, the more you realize we're all just trying to figure this out.

- Amanda de Cadenet

Go Goes

I've done a lot of shows that didn't do well. You have to go in with a 50-50 take on it. If it goes well, fantastic. Hope for the best and plan for the worst.

- Amanda Righetti
