Been Films

I had been working early in my life in films - since I was 11.

Very Gruesome

'Family Life' is a blueprint of my life. It was horrible and physically gruesome in a way the book doesn't attempt to capture. It was emotionally very bleak.

- Akhil Sharma

Other Biased

I am shamelessly biased about the people in my life, and it makes sense to me that other people are the same.

- Akhil Sharma

Study Other

In total, I have spent 35 years at Hokkaido University as a staff member - 2 and a half in the Faculty of Science, and the other 32 and a half in the Faculty of Engineering.

- Akira Suzuki

Nine Been

Including my nine years as a student, the majority of my life has been at Hokkaido University.

- Akira Suzuki

Study Arrested

I wanted to study painting and become a painter, but I had a huge flip-over in my life when I was about 18 or 19. I was part of a criminal environment; I got arrested and convicted, and I had to start thinking in a new way.

- Aksel Hennie

Game Standard

Journalists ask me all the time, 'Akshay, do you believe in the numbers game?' My standard response: 'I can't count, that's why I have producers and accountants who calculate for me. As long as I have them in my life, I don't need to worry about numbers!'

- Akshay Kumar

Life Strength

Superstars come and go. I want to make sure I am always a producer's actor. I may be refused to be called a great actor but I have never troubled any of my producers in my life. Honesty always catches the camera, and that is what my strength is.

- Akshay Kumar

Myself Career

I have earned enough money in my life. When I started my career, for about 10 years, I told myself I want to make money. Now, I just want to do different roles.

- Akshay Kumar

Cook Depended

I can cook because my life depended on it when I lived in Thailand. Either I learnt cooking, or I learnt how it felt to starve. I chose cooking.

Love Over

If I could live my life all over I'd do everything the same; the film in my camera would remain the same; there's no way lord, to leave this love behind.

- Al Green

Love Motivation

I work 'cause I have to pay the bills. But I also work 'cause I love it. I don't know what I'd do with me if I didn't have this work. It's what I've done all my life. It's my motivation. It's my satisfaction. It's my joy to stand in front of an audience to sing, to come back home and write songs. Man, it's amazing for me.

- Al Jarreau

Going Six

I've seen 48 Stanley Cups in my life. I was about six or seven when I started going to games with my dad.

- Al Jourgensen

Bus 30 Minutes

I'll never forget that first night with the team. Going to the ballpark on the bus was the hardest 30 minutes of my life. I had to walk down that aisle between all the players. I really didn't know too much about the Detroit Tigers at that time.

- Al Kaline

Been Lot

There has been a lot of self-doubt and unwelcome events in my life.

- Al Yankovic

Doing Certainly

As a kid, I certainly never thought I would get to spend my life doing something fun.

- Al Yankovic

Back Wait

I was a huge fan of 'Mad' magazine when I was 11, 12, 13 years old. I'd scour used bookstores trying to find back issues, and I'd wait at the newsstand for a new issue to come out. My life revolved around it.

- Al Yankovic

Small Nevertheless

What I do know from my life is the phenomenon of saying, 'This is too small a thing to argue about', but then nevertheless finding oneself in that argument.

- Alain de Botton

Yes Before

Oh, yes, that never happened to me in my life before. It was a risky film, and I warned the producer.

- Alain Resnais

Like Drinking

To me, climbing is like eating or drinking. I have to do it; it's part of my life.

- Alain Robert

Career Away

I grew up in this industry. I'm a third generation actor, and I believe strongly that life and career are two different things. Career is inside my life. I'm also a photographer, a pianist, and lots of different things, so my life consists of so many different elements that there are moments when I have to step away and be me.

- Alaina Huffman

Good Story Some

It's not an epitaph. I felt I could look back at my life and get a good story out of it. It's a picture of somebody trying to figure things out. I'm not trying to create some impression about myself. That doesn't interest me.

- Alan Alda

Some Compulsion

I'm condemned by some inner compulsion to think about the daily rituals of my life. I have a low grade fever for improving myself in many ways, including everyday tasks.

- Alan Alda

Looking Back Give

For me, I find that even though I've accomplished a few things in my life, looking back on accomplishments doesn't give me a sense of satisfaction.

- Alan Alda

Big Depends

I'm an actor. My life as an actor depends on who sends me what. I'm just taking the best stuff that I can find that's sent my way, regardless of how big or little the paycheck is.

- Alan Arkin

Waste Always

I'm a huge freak, and always have been. I spent the first part of my life trying really desperately not to be one, and it was just a waste of time.

- Alan Ball

Own Functional

I definitely see the good in people. Certainly in my own life I strive to be somebody who is functional and well adjusted and can face conflict in a non-emotional and non-destructive way, and those are the people I try to surround myself with in my life. But as characters, they bore me.

- Alan Ball

Had Hard Look

I'm at the point in my life where I don't want to work as hard. Actually, I've had to take a good hard look at workaholism and it's effect on one's mental health.

- Alan Ball

Death Very

Death showed up in my life very early on, so I'm aware of it. If you look at most of the things I write there's a sort of contemplation of mortality - although 'True Blood' doesn't fall into that. Even though there's such a ridiculously high body count!

- Alan Ball

Lucky Very

I've been very lucky in everything, really - in my career and in finding someone to share my life with, and in not dying.

- Alan Bennett

Been Grown-Up

I had to be a grown-up when I should have been a little boy, and now that I'm a grown-up my little-boyness has exploded out of me. I've lived my life backwards.

- Alan Cumming

Idea Arkansas

It's about how you exist as a person in the world, and the idea that your work is more important than you as a person is a horrible, horrible message. I always think about a little gay boy in Wisconsin or a little lesbian in Arkansas seeing someone like me, and if I cannot be open in my life, how on earth can they?

- Alan Cumming

Love Reason

I love discomfort. I mean, my whole life is discomfort. One reason I can never retire is that the idea of just sitting on the beach totally comfortable is not a desideratum in my life. I like ambiguity, I like conflict, I like uncertainly.

- Alan Dershowitz

College About

I never had a strategy about my life. I didn't have enough information to have a strategy. I'm the first person in my family to go to college. I had no family mentors.

- Alan Dershowitz

Rest Brazil

I could not spend the rest of my life sitting in Brazil writing down who called whom uncle and aunt.

- Alan Furst

Thought Applying

I had the experience of a monk copying documents, applying myself assiduously to my work. And I thought whatever happened, happened - this is just what I do in my life.

- Alan Furst

Always Read

I spend my life writing fiction, so reading fiction isn't much of an escape. That's not always true, but I don't read much contemporary fiction.

- Alan Furst

Average Big

I was a fairly good amateur musician, and I was an average professional. But the one thing I saw was that the big band business was fading. So I made an economic decision, and it turned out the best judgment I ever made in my life.

- Alan Greenspan

Career Becoming

My undergraduate years at the University of Nebraska were a special time in my life: the combination of partying and intellectual awakening that is what the undergraduate years are supposed to be. I went to the university with the goal of becoming an engineer; I had no concept that one could pursue science as a career.

- Alan J. Heeger

Sisters Had

I've had to live with women all my life. I grew up with four older sisters, and I was the baby and the only boy.

- Alan Jackson

College Anybody

'After 17' is a song I wrote when my first daughter went to college, so that's kind of where I'm at in that part of my life. If you listen to that song and knew anything about me, you'd say, 'Oh yeah, he wrote that about his daughter,' but I try not to write them that they are so specific that they wouldn't apply to anybody that has a child.

- Alan Jackson

Maybe Studied

Maybe I can't act, but I know the gimmicks. I studied acting all my life and know what's good for me.

- Alan Ladd

Languages Studied

Music is, of course, a universal emotional experience, cutting across cultures and languages. I studied piano for ten years as a child and consider that experience one of the most valuable in my life.

- Alan Lightman

Life Been

I've never been able to plan my life. I just lurch from indecision to indecision.

- Alan Rickman

Doing Lucky

Originally, theater was my life. It was what I assumed I'd spend my working life doing - if I was lucky. Then along came movies.

- Alan Rickman

Social Loves

Aside from my family, I have two great loves in my life: acting and the fight for social justice.

- Alan Rosenberg

Always Some

Management interests me at some stage in my life, I have always said that. When that will be I really couldn't tell you.

- Alan Shearer

Career Been

There's not much that I haven't done in my life, but there's lots of things that I'd like to do better. The variety of my career has been the fun of it, and I can thank Canada for that.

- Alan Thicke

Life Changed

Whedon changed my life.

- Alan Tudyk

Pretty Iggy

It was when I saw Iggy Pop, that's what did it for me. That changed my life pretty much.

- Alan Vega

Shame Grandparents

There is a psychic gulf that exists between myself and my grandparents because they don't really speak English, and I don't speak Chinese, and that's my own personal shame because I did not learn, ever. I only saw my paternal grandma a few times in my life, and that's really crazy.

- Alan Yang

Most Period

It was a dark period of my life when William Hung was the most famous Asian man.

- Alan Yang

Been Couple

In my life, there have been people that I was convinced would be around forever, and yet, somehow they managed to drift away after a couple of years. Likewise there have been people who have begun as casual acquaintances but become more important with each passing year.

- Alana Stewart

Very Certainly

Men come and go - God knows they certainly have in my life - but girlfriends are for ever. I have a lot of girlfriends but only a few very, very close ones.

- Alana Stewart

Achievement Other

My greatest achievement is being able to write records that are real snapshots of what's going on in my life. I won't repeat myself for the sake of commerce, or to please other people.

- Alanis Morissette

Looking Back Very

My main objective with every album is to capture a moment in time, which usually makes the whole process very relaxing. I only discover in retrospect when looking back at the songs how my life is going!

- Alanis Morissette

Chain Forming

I have not an ounce of regret. Every link is so valuable in forming the chain that is my life. Who I am today is because of those links, and I wouldn't change any of them.

- Alanis Morissette

Purpose Again

But once I acclimated and really used fame for what it was offering me as a tool to serve my life purpose of inspiring and contributing, then it started to get fun again.

- Alanis Morissette

About Integrating

I'm really clear about what my life mission is now. There's no more depression or lethargy, and I feel like I've returned to the athlete I once was. I'm integrating all the parts of me - jock, musician, writer, poet, philosopher - and becoming stronger as a result.

- Alanis Morissette

Couple Boyfriend

Over the last couple of years, I've really worked toward balancing my life out more, having a little bit more time with friends, family and my boyfriend. There was a period of time when they were way down the list. It was all about music and touring and if everything fell by the wayside, so be it.

- Alanis Morissette

Love Always

Music will always be a part of my life. I love music and I don't care how many units I sell.

- Alanis Morissette

Through Deal

When I was younger, I was terrified to express anger because it would often kick-start a horrible reaction in the men in my life. So I bit my tongue. I was left to painstakingly deal with the aftermath of my avoidance later in life, in therapy or through the lyrics of my songs.

- Alanis Morissette

Been Deal

My own approach has always been to push intense emotions down and attempt to deal with them later. When I was younger, I was terrified to express anger because it would often kick-start a horrible reaction in the men in my life.

- Alanis Morissette

Sometimes Through

The spirituality that I experience sometimes touches on religion, in that I resonate with the thread of continuity that permeates through all religions. But in terms of it being a concretized, organized part of my life, it's not.

- Alanis Morissette

Country Almost

One of the more fatuous remarks I've heard in recent days is that 'My Life,' Clinton's autobiography, is too long and, at almost 1,000 pages, short it is not. But this man was for eight years the President of the most powerful country on earth.

- Alastair Campbell

New Very

I used to be very routine-based and the new thing in my life is not having a clear, full-time existence.

- Alastair Campbell

Been Cornwall

I've never had much interest in spinoffery - the idea of writing in someone else's universe generally leaves me cold - but 'Doctor Who' is different. I've grown up with it. It's been part of my life since I was tiny, watching Jon Pertwee on a grainy black and white television in Cornwall and being terrified out of my mind.

- Alastair Reynolds

Love Andre

I don't see many explosions or ten-car crashes in the course of my life, so I don't put them into my movies. I would love to live in a society where 'My Dinner with Andre' made $100,000,000. Then I would be in the mainstream. I could do that stuff easier than I could do 'Meatballs.'

- Albert Brooks

Religion Die

I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live as if there isn't and to die to find out that there is.

- Albert Camus

Think I See

If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.

- Albert Einstein

Think Revolves

After boarding school in Switzerland, at, like, 14 or 15, my life clicked, and I just realized, 'I don't want to be like anyone around me at my school. I don't think the world revolves around money.'

- Albert Hammond, Jr.

Always Which

Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me.

- Albert Schweitzer

Life Argument

My life is my argument.

- Albert Schweitzer

Rest Could

Only reality interests me now and I know I could spend the rest of my life in copying a chair.

- Alberto Giacometti

Okay Been

Nothing in my life has necessarily been easy, but eventually I see where it's gotten me to, and I say, 'Okay, it's been worth it.'

- Aldis Hodge

Treat Standard

My standard for the women in my life is like, 'If no man can treat you better than I can treat you, they can't come.' You gotta step up to the plate. With respect, with acknowledgment, with support.

- Aldis Hodge

Been Some

My life, in some ways, has been a half-measure. I didn't commit myself all the way to my marriage and family, because I would have given up more. And I didn't go all the way with just being completely selfish. I always wonder where my career would be if I was more selfish.

- Alec Baldwin

Give Amount

I'd rather live my life off screen and give only a certain amount of energy to the work.

- Alec Baldwin

Children Happy

My children are the only thing in my life that makes me happy.

- Alec Baldwin

More Films

For me, the most important thing that I have to accomplish is to be a good father. That's the most difficult challenge of my life. That's the most important thing for me, more than films.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Possibilities

I've listened to music all my life. I've always felt that music tells more stories sometimes than films, with more possibilities. Every time you listen to them, songs bring different images and moods - depending on where you are in your life, you can listen to a song, and it means something different.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Death Depressive

I am not a depressive person at all, but I reflect a lot on my life, and life in general, from the perspective of death.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

My Own Kind

When I was about to turn 50, I went into a kind of personal revision and observed my own priorities and what led those priorities in my life. And many things that, in a way, were profound.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Always Some

I'm always surprised when some director says, 'When I saw this film, that changed my life.' I don't have that.

- Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

Mind Movie

I want to liberate my imagination and my mind with every kind of movie. That is what I wanted to do all my life.

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

Politics Will

The first thing I didn't understand was my life. It's a mystery. And today I don't understand economy or politics. I don't know why politics or economy are destroying the world, but I will understand after understanding.

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

Cry Will

A man doesn't cry. In my life, I've never cried. I cannot do it. I am a man. How will I cry?

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

Life Really

All my life, I have never found a person who really loved this world. Every person hates the world, how he is.

- Alejandro Jodorowsky

Nine Other

My life was filled with family in South Sudan. I am the seventh of nine children, and we grew up in what would be considered a middle-class family. We did not have a lot, but we did have more than a lot of other people.

- Alek Wek

Mind New

Even though New York may be a more inspiring city, I get more inspired thinking of L.A., in a way. My life there was so much more simple in mind, and quiet.

- Aleksa Palladino

About Revelations

I really don't feel that any of the pieces I wrote were confessions; there are no revelations about secrets in my life, and actually I have nothing to confess and I certainly do not ask for redemption and there is no reward for confessing that I expect.

- Aleksandar Hemon

Communist Other

I have spent all my life under a Communist regime, and I will tell you that a society without any objective legal scale is a terrible one indeed. But a society with no other scale but the legal one is not quite worthy of man either.

- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Life Leaders

I am extremely excited to develop and design a brand representative of my life, experiences and style. Working closely with Cherokee will help establish a worldwide presence with best-in-class retailers and category leaders.

- Alessandra Ambrosio

Understand Through

I'm not conscious of being a revolutionary. This is my life, looking through my glasses at my little world, but this world seems to be full of people who understand it.

- Alessandro Michele

Work Piece

My life - it's a piece of work. And my work is a piece of life.

- Alessandro Michele

Hate Plan

I hate to plan my life.

- Alessandro Michele
