L.A. runs on optimism, enthusiasm and flattery. I think you can go a little bit crazy. I've heard people say there's a limit to the number of years you can stay in this city without going slightly mad. It's just too damn sunny in every dimension – weather-wise, socially and professionally. -Hugh Laurie

Sonia Gandhi and her husband have always been persons I look at with a lot of respect. Of course, one of the reasons we look at India with a lot of sympathy and enthusiasm is Sonia Gandhi. Now she is Indian, not Italian, but she will always represent a myth for Italians. -Luca Cordero di Montezemolo

I think I still have that same drive and determination, the same curiosity and passion for filmmaking that I did when I first started. Every film brings with it unique challenges and experiences, and I approach every one with the same enthusiasm. -Barbara Kopple

My mode of presentation is short-form video – basically I create fast cut, impassioned 'idea explainers' that explode with enthusiasm and intensity as they distill how technology is expanding our sphere of possibility. -Jason Silva

I don't have a problem with enthusiasm. -Jason Scott Lee

I live in New York, but I am always delighted to come to Europe because I am European and grew up here until I was 20. I am not only Italian, I am partly Swedish.

If you have passion, there is no need for excuses because your enthusiasm will trump any negative reasoning you might come up with. Enthusiasm makes excuses a nonissue. -Wayne Dyer

Wrought upon at length, you may say, by an enthusiasm and frenzy that could brook no control – I burst the tyrant bands, which held my sex in awe, and clandestinely, or by stealth, grasped an opportunity, which custom and the world seemed to deny, as a natural privilege. -Deborah Sampson

And that's fine, and I pour my entire energy and enthusiasm into it, but of course, I'm of two minds about the whole idea. -Neil Peart

True confession time: I never know where a book is going. I get a gut feeling the story is there, then pursue it with the enthusiasm of a hunting tiger on a trail. If I knew where I was going, I'd get bored out of my mind and stop writing. -Jane Lindskold

At the age that I was when I stopped reading comics, and with a set of talents that would seem to mark a future comic-book auteur, my son has had only a passing enthusiasm for the medium. -Steve Erickson

The power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm and courage of the young people. -Kailash Satyarthi

To recruit staff, I traveled all over the country talking with people who had been working on one or another aspect of the atomic-energy enterprise and people in radar work, for example, and underwater sound, telling them about the job, the place that we are going to, and enlisting their enthusiasm. -J.

The basic idea of 'The Venture Brothers' was taking the world of 'Jonny Quest' and jumping back into 30 years later, seeing how someone who grew up like Jonny – with that kind of space race enthusiasm and disregard for other cultures – would turn out.

So many of my childhood memories involve him. All the excursions into science were shaped by his knowledge and enthusiasm. -Robert F. Engle

I first read 'The Scarlet Letter' when I was fifteen. In it, I found a familiar vision of religious intolerance to the one around me.

Though German art can never be Bavarian, but simply German, yet Munich is the capital of this German Art; here, under shelter of a Prince who kindles my enthusiasm, to feel myself a native and member of the people was, to me, the homeless wanderer, a deep, a genuine need. -Richard Wagner

The enthusiasm around carbon capture and sequestration was probably greater before the shale-gas discovery and the low prices were so prevalent. -Lynn Good

When St-Pierre retired, it brought a lot of enthusiasm to the weight class, and things got shook up. -Robbie Lawler

I only cast the actors and actresses I fall in love with – truly having an emotion for them, an anticipation and enthusiasm when seeing them – and I believe that my emotional confidence in them blends into chemistry. It's always been like that, and I hope I won't be wrong in the future. -Luca Guadagnino

The entrepreneurial bug had already bitten my son Ankur by the time he got to college.

You're sent scripts, and for some, as soon as you start reading them, you feel an instant connection to the character. You know who they are, you know how to play them, and there is instant enthusiasm. Then, at the audition, you don't have nerves because of that natural affinity. -Ophelia Lovibond

Kajol ma'am is full of energy. Her energy is so infectious that it motivated people to work with the same enthusiasm. She is a very friendly and warm person. We had a great time working with her. -Dhanush

I've been pushing for the longest time that you get the votes easier and with more enthusiasm when people feel like you're addressing their concerns. -Jimmy Gomez

Of course, 'True Grit' is a Western, but we never considered our film a classical Western and honestly never thought about genre at all. We didn't talk about John Ford or Sergio Leone, even though we like their films. Really, we were driven only by our enthusiasm for Charles Portis's book. -Ethan Coen

In the gym, people's enthusiasm tends to get the best of them. They realize this is their opportunity to say hello or that they love my work… It doesn't matter how profusely you're sweating. -Sterling K. Brown

Sometimes there are films like 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' which turned out better than it deserved to be, but in the case of 'Edge of Tomorrow,' there was just such enthusiasm from fans. -Doug Liman

I am giddy with enthusiasm when my companies are doing well. And my heart hurts when they're not. Maybe that sounds very cheesy, but that's the reality of my life right now. -Kirsten Green

Here in South Korea, I'm continuing to learn English in order to boost my prospects. When North Korean defectors try to get a job to stabilize their lives, their lack of English is a handicap. It was the same story while I was living in China. It took an enormous amount of time and enthusiasm to learn Chinese. -Lee Hyeon-seo

More than anything else, I'm a very calm person in the sense that I don't worry about the future and what my life could be. I just have to face it, and I'll face it with enthusiasm as well as the desire and curiosity to test myself. -Gianluigi Buffon

While we don't know exactly when the bubble will pop, it eventually will. -David Einhorn

I'm suspicious of the idea of categories in music and this idea of things being in boxes. To me, that seems unnatural.

I wake up every day with tremendous enthusiasm. -Sergio Ramos

People say that Rooney could have been like Lionel Messi, a more prolific goalscorer who dribbles past opponents more. But they are different characters. You will never see Messi snapping around the heels of an opponent to win the ball back deep in his own half. Wayne does that all the time, and sometimes that enthusiasm will count against him. -Paul Scholes
