I think shoppers are looking for newness and creativity. Look at C. Wonder, for instance. They're dancing in our stores. We don't believe in retail like retail was done in the past. We believe in disrupting the whole environment, offering them amazing value in an amazing package of fun, excitement and whimsy. -J. Christopher Burch

Football can generate excitement and bring people together. -Didier Drogba

How it feels to be alive! -Jeff Koons

I always like to believe that my work is about the expansion of the possibilities of the viewer.

You don't really know who you're going to fall in love with at what time in their life. They can be the worst off they've ever been in their life, but you can't help who you fall in love with. That's part of the excitement of life – new people, new experiences. -Kirsten Dunst

A film has a beginning, middle, and an end. There is a certain amount of time that you have to embody these people. You know the entire story arch. But on TV, you have to let your guard down.

For so many years, I've been an actor acting in other people's movies, and in 'Unstoppable,' I'm producing it, and I have an opportunity to create some of that excitement with style and form and different color templates and things like that. So, as an artist, it's really exciting. -Kirk Cameron

A lot of times with novels, you can get a really deep, engaging story, but there's not a lot happening, frankly.

On the whole, when I travel to different countries, I like to find the hidden places, so I tend to avoid the cities – but in terms of the ease of getting about, finding what you need, the excitement, that undercurrent of whatever you want it to be, it's got to be London. -Will Tudor

Darkness might seem to obscure what's happening, but I find it's always pretty revelatory: it brings out the awe in us, the fear in us, the excitement of exploring the hidden or unknown.

The one period of glory in NASA was the first nine years when they weren't a bureaucracy yet… and they haven't gotten back to that excitement, that adventurism, and won't. So, I would take most of the NASA budget, and I would turn it into prizes for private sector. -Newt Gingrich

I am proud to have been born in Iowa. Through the eyes of a ten-year-old boy, it was a place of adventure and daily discoveries – the wonder of the growing crops, the excitements of the harvest, the journeys to the woods for nuts and hunting, the joys of snowy winters, the comfort of the family fireside, of good food and tender care. -Herbert Hoover

And up until that moment, when my mom would call my cell phone and it would ring, I would be flushed with some sort of excitement that we all have – a little dopamine rush, when my phone rings – and I'd look down, and it would say, 'Mom.' It used to feel like a job to pick that up. -Mike Posner

Once or twice in the height of 'Happy Days' excitement, which had more to do with Henry Winkler as The Fonz than ever had to do with me, we were kind of like a boy band for a year or so, and we would go out on personal appearances and feel the limousine rocking, and the grabbing at your clothes and people trying to steal your cap. -Ron Howard
