I find the past so fascinating. Photographs are strange, almost surreal, almost here yet gone. I slip into thinking what the past must have been like and I enjoy creating that ambience and atmosphere – 1730 to around 1870 is the most interesting period. -Kate Atkinson

I don't know if I would say that I'm specifically a history buff. I do find a lot of things fascinating, especially anything that's bizarre or mysterious and unknown and we don't have all the answers for. -Oren Peli

There are, of course, always painters whom I admire and find fascinating. I've often thought, 'Goodness, if I could paint like the Danish Golden Age painters, the early 19th century painters, the way they could paint a landscape – absolutely beautiful.' -Margrethe II of Denmark

The reason that war is such a fascinating subject for writers is because it's a revealer. Put a bunch of people in an adrenaline-fuelled, life-or-death situation and their fundamental behaviours are exposed, the scrim is taken away and the motivations behind each personality come out to play. -Sloane Crosley

Every now and then, Prince decides to try being a normal rock star. You know, the kind who does a professional arena tour where he plays the hits. But part of what makes him such an eternally fascinating star is that he lives in his own private purple world, even when he sets out to make the house quake. -Rob Sheffield

One of the things that make Liars so fascinating after five albums, each one so completely different from the others, is that even though they play around with all the classic tropes of art-damaged angst-noise perv-rock, they exude a totally cheery and boyish enthusiasm onstage, goofing around with their keyboards and beatboxes. -Rob Sheffield

I pick projects according to how fascinating they are to me, and it has resulted in a broad reach. My records are actually in five different sports: balloons, airplanes, airships, gliders, and sailboats. -Steve Fossett

Listen, I wrote 10 unsuccessful books before I broke through, so I'm looking all the time to keep my books fascinating. I want to write what people want to read, not push any message. -Ken Follett

In real life, people fumble their words. They repeat themselves and stare blankly off into space and don't listen properly to what other people are saying. I find that kind of speech fascinating but screenwriters never write dialogue like that because it doesn't look good on the page. -Christopher Guest

Watching something being constructed, whether you're passing a building site or whether you're watching an artist at work, is fascinating, and I think that's the enjoyment. -Nick Mason

Google is fascinating, and the book isn't finished. I'm creating, living, building, and writing those chapters. -Susan Wojcicki

I'm in the trenches; I do the best work I can always do. Having said that, the way that what I do converges with the outside world is fascinating to me. Because it ebbs and flows. People's interest and understanding, it changes all the time. -Daryl Hall

I'm interested in the dark side of man. I'm interested in taboos, and murder is the greatest taboo. Characters are fascinating in their extremity, not in their happiness. -Elizabeth George

Crime cases tend to be fascinating until you figure out what happened. -Bill James

The Web is fascinating and transformative, but it's an easy, flashy, get-rich-quick option to the hard graft of proper industry. -James Dyson

The thing I love about vampires that I find so fascinating is that, unlike other sci-fi creations, they aren't monsters from the get-go, they're human beings first… and so what kind of human you are would dictate what kind of vampire you would be. -Rachelle Lefevre

Sharks are really serious animals. They've been around longer than dinosaurs. They're basically prehistoric killing machines, and that's terrifying and fascinating, at the same time. -Sara Paxton

Just thinking about that, if that were to really happen, if an alien were to come down and really abduct you, how terrifying and how earth-shattering would that be? Your whole world is just destroyed. God is destroyed. It's kind of a fascinating thing to think about. -Evan Peters

There's a ton of stories that can come out of L.A. I actually think that even though I enjoy being in New York more, I think that L.A. is a really fascinating place. -Corey Stoll

I took several trips to New Orleans and met with people who had intimate knowledge of the underbelly of the city in the 1950s. The meetings were both fascinating and terrifying. -Ruta Sepetys

I was just reading about Paul Simon in 'Uncut', and it was fascinating. I never think about him much or think about his music or anything, but it's interesting to hear his ideas on stuff. -J Mascis

I love pretending to be other people. The more unlike me they are the better – I find other people endlessly fascinating and myself incredibly boring. -Jacki Weaver

I'm constantly saying, 'I read a fascinating article in 'The New Yorker'… ' I say it so often that sometimes I think I have nothing interesting to say myself, I merely regurgitate 'The New Yorker.' -Emma Donoghue

I've always been a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. I like working with larger-than-life characters in fascinating worlds – places where the rules are different. -Gale Anne Hurd

I think the human mind is fascinating. I love figuring out why people are doing what they do. -Danielle Fishel

Not long ago I made a list of Doc Ford books I would like to do, and I came up with 11 pretty easily. I like to let the characters go their own ways and see what happens. I find them fascinating. -Randy Wayne White

Nixon is fascinating because he's our most alienated president. Everybody felt that they never knew who he was – that's palpable in the histories. His face is so cartoony that he's become this cartoon figure. I never really related to the romanticization of J.F.K., and I knew too much about Reagan to idealize him. Nixon falls in between. -Austin Grossman

Working with the doctors is a fascinating two-way process. I am interested in what they suggest about why I'm the way I am. But if they could make me 'normal', I wouldn't want that. I've been like this for so long, it's what makes me . -Daniel Tammet

Translated poetry filled the no-man's-land between my own work and other writers', and I found this fascinating to explore. -Edwin Morgan

In Britain, eponymous lifestyle branding as we know it started in the late 1960s, with two fascinating families – the Conrans and the Ashleys – who in increasingly brilliant settings and catalogues sold rather different visions of what the new ideal upper-middle-y life looked like. -Peter York

What I found particularly fascinating and satisfying about the Hindu tradition was its spirit of inclusiveness. In Sanatan Dharma, or what is commonly called Hinduism, I discovered the basic truths of all religions in a way that the oneness of God and religion is comprehensively understood. -Radhanath Swami

I read a bit of the Icelandic sagas. They're fascinating in that they are completely ordinary. The farmer will go off into the hills and fight a troll, and then go back and do ordinary things. It's an odd mix of fantasy and reality. -Jonathan Stroud

I find my husband's family history fascinating, as they can trace the family lineage back to ancestors who fought, and died, in the first battle of the Revolution, as well as to many other interesting people. -Kim Edwards

Nothing can create something all the time due to the laws of quantum mechanics, and it's – it's fascinatingly interesting. -Lawrence M. Krauss

I think denial's fascinating. It's a jokey word, but it really happens, and sometimes in enormous ways. -Marian Keyes

Relationships with parents, grandparents, friends, and siblings were important to me when I was young and have remained so throughout my life. Our relationships with other people both shape and reflect who we are. These relationships are infinitely fascinating to explore! -Sharon Creech

As an arts journalist in London, working mainly for the BBC, I interviewed hundreds if not thousands of authors. From them I gleaned a great deal of passing instruction in writing and I observed one fascinating detail: no two writers approach their work – physically – in the same way. -Frank Delaney

I seem to attract and be attracted to very willful, fascinating people. -Johnny Marr

Animation is a fascinating area from an acting point of view because it's not really like anything else because you are only providing a portion of the performance. That's very inspiring and it forces you to do things in a different way – to tell stories through your voice. -David Tennant

Resveratrol is fascinating stuff. One of the best sources of information about it is the Immortality Institute. They have a forum where some people are in the 500 Club, as they call it. They've been taking 500 milligrams for years. It's a really great source of data. -Tim Ferriss

There's nothing like theater. It's really amazing. But it does take up all of your time. I would like to get into more film, just because I find it super fascinating. -Cristin Milioti

Well, it'd certainly be fascinating if we discovered that gays were better at being married than heterosexuals are. Talk about irony. -Gail Collins

For me, the most fascinating interface is Twitter. I have odd cosmic thoughts every day and I realized I could hold them to myself or share them with people who might be interested. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

Twitter is incredibly useful. It's a great example of how the Internet is changing the way we engage with information and text. Above all else, this change in the nature of engagement is fascinating for me as a writer. -Steven Hall

What I found fascinating was just how quickly the best of the young Negro League players were drafted into the major leagues once Branch Rickey broke the color line by hiring Jackie Robinson. It was clear that all of the major league owners already knew the talents of the black ballplayers that they had refused to let into their league. -Walter Dean Myers

Lofty questions about the mind are fascinating to ask, philosophers have been asking them for three millennia both in India where I am from and here in the West – but it is only in the brain that we can eventually hope to find the answers. -Vilayanur S. Ramachandran

I think that's what the most fascinating part of getting to know someone is – to see how they do things, and how their way of doing things is different from your way of doing things, and the fun of trying to do it their way and to see what value there is in looking at things from their perspective. -Kali Hawk

It's been fascinating working on a set in New York. Just to be in the thick of it is really interesting, because on any given day you're having to react to what New York is offering, if that's a thunderstorm or blocked traffic or a bunch of noise. -Jessica Collins

There is something fascinating about every human being. The question is how much they're willing to divulge. -Nathaniel Rich

I love religions and find them fascinating, and I find Judaism very beautiful. It's enriched my life enormously. -Isla Fisher

There's something fascinating about watching artists draw. -Mark Hamill

In a consumer society, people wallow in things, fascinating, enjoyable things. If you define your value by the things you acquire and surround yourself with, being excluded is humiliating. -Zygmunt Bauman

What's so fascinating and frustrating and great about life is that you're constantly starting over, all the time, and I love that. -Billy Crystal

When you start off acting, it does seem very romantic, and the make-believe part of it all seems very exciting. It's only later that you begin to realize how fascinating the work is – that it's a bottomless pit, and you never get to the end of it. -Sada Thompson

Human character is just endlessly fascinating, and there is no character who is one thing any more than any one person is just one thing. As you work on a character, he/she is revealed more and more. That's what I continue to love about the work. -Sada Thompson

I reread Mesrine's book every year because the way the story is told is fascinating. Today, we don't have gangsters like Mesrine – he had humor. -Thomas Langmann

There's a fascinating school of thought that some women are relationship addicts. You get really strung out on a guy who's not returning your enthusiasm and tell yourself you're going to fix him and make him better, and of course it's impossible. -Phoebe Snow

I'm interested in complexity, in the mathematical sense, as well as the idiomatic sense. The idea of emergence – that it's possible for complex patterns to arise out of many simple interactions – is fascinating. -Hari Kunzru

Clark Gable seemed fascinating all his life because there wasn't so much information about him. Today, you're on television all the time. -A. Scott Berg

Just two days in Manhattan and you find yourself looking for a place to wash your handkerchief after you wipe your forehead and it comes away black. Is there a dirtier or more fascinating city anywhere in the land? The answer to both parts of the question has to be positively negative. -Herb Caen

One of the really fascinating areas is marketplaces that take advantage of mobile devices. Ridesharing is the obvious example, but that's just the start of it, of selling goods and services with lightweight mobile apps. -John Collison

I have Glocks, .45s, Berettas, Remingtons. I like the marksmanship and the discipline that it takes to be a gun owner. I like the machinery. Being able to take it out and clean it is even more fascinating than having the gun. -Bernie Mac

I think all writers are armchair psychologists to some degree or another, and I think a character's sexuality is fascinating. It's a great way to really get at the root of their identity, because it's such a personal thing. -Alan Ball

I've always been a fan of instructional videos. The bass-player ones are insane. The music on them is fascinating. It's not something you hear on CDs or would really ever play in bands. You listen to it and are like, 'What is happening?' It's this blizzard of notes in weird time signatures, and they're trying to teach you that. -Fred Armisen

A few words about Sarah Palin: She is one of the most fascinating women I have ever met. She crackles with energy like a live electrical wire and on first meeting gets about three inches from your face. -Mark McKinnon

NASA is an utterly fascinating place, and the fact that the buildings look so anonymous almost makes it more fascinating. You walk by a generic office-park-looking building, and you have no idea what's going on inside. -Moby

Personally I find the democratic chaos of the Internet fascinating, and for the most part really benign. -Moby

I try to get roles that challenge me in what I can do and who I think I can portray. For me, it's about creating characters with really fascinating stories, because that's what I like to watch on TV. -Tatiana Maslany

I am fascinated by the Royal Family because they are shrouded in mystique, and the Queen, and to a certain extent William, represent fabulous blank canvases. I find the Prince of Wales less fascinating because he spills the beans and we know too much about him. -Alison Jackson

Since I am me, I find it very difficult to judge how fascinating listening to my nasal, heavily-accented drone for two hours would be to somebody who wasn't me. -Alan Moore

I'm always fascinated when people really fervently believe, because I have such a hard time believing anything. When people have real faith in something, it's fascinating to me. And the fact that so many people, in surveys, so many people say they do. It kind of blows my mind. -Conor Oberst

The No. 1 quote critics give me is, 'Thom, your work is irrelevant.' Now, that's a fascinating, fascinating comment. Yes, irrelevant to the little subculture, this microculture, of modern art. But here's the point: My art is relevant because it's relevant to 10 million people. That makes me the most relevant artist in this culture. -Thomas Kinkade

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

Hey, don't knock Judy Blume. Without her, my younger self would never have been able to decode the random acts of madness perpetrated by the fascinating creature known as the teenage girl. -Ken Marino

Acting is fascinating to me. I love unlocking the mysteries with characters and finding out what would be the most intriguing aspect of that character to exist in. Figuring out a person and getting to be a different person every day, hey – that's pretty lucky. I don't have to wake up and be Amanda if I don't feel like it. You know, that's fun. -Amanda Schull

When I came to University of California, San Francisco to work on infectious disease, I looked around to different options, and malaria was particularly interesting and fascinating to me. It's amazing that after 100 years of study of this little parasite, we've not been able to effectively control it. -Joseph DeRisi

China in particular is an absolutely fascinating place to be. Culturally and politically and economically it's becoming more and more relevant. If you look at how China is perceived in different parts of the world, you can recognize it's very dynamic. It's also challenging what it thinks of itself. -Jan Chipchase

I'm into the vampire stuff. I think it's really fascinating and interesting. There's a lot of history behind all of that, and if you look into it, it's really interesting stuff. -Gloria Votsis

I think acting and psychology are both looking at what makes human beings tick. I've always found that fascinating. -Courtney Gains

One culture I find fascinating to juxtapose against American culture is the culture of Germany. They've gone through a long process through their art, poetry, public discourse, their politics, of owning the fact of their complicity in what happened in World War II. It's still a topic of everyday conversation in Germany. -Chris Jordan

I'm one of those weird people that tends to not do the extras and listen to the commentaries and stuff on movies, although I do think they are fascinating and interesting – I'm just so worried that years later I wouldn't remember anything! -Richard Thomas

I like rock music because it's always sonically fascinating. There's never a method to what it needs to sound like. It's just however that instrument comes out that day, whatever the humidity level was in the air, what studio you were at. All that makes that tone that you can't re-create, so each song is like a person. -B.o.B

I like writing about what to me are like questions that I have about myself and the human condition. I find quantum physics fascinating, so I like to write about that, and I like things that make me laugh. -Kirsten Vangsness

What I'm interested in is the fascinating image of young leaders… you know, young people leading in different fields. You see athletes and people in gymnastics, where the requirement is that you are supple and very, very young… 11… and by the time you're 14, you're already over the hill. -Salman Khurshid

I definitely fell in love with 'Dracula' when I was 13. I found it so fascinating and so dark and romantic. -Sara Canning

You could have two completely different careers if you could stay healthy to 90. How fascinating that would be. -Cynthia Kenyon

The First Lady is such a fascinating office to hold. You're not elected, but it's very much official. You can see the latitude of power of that office. -Bellamy Young

Examining other people's motivations, other people's language and other people's way of interacting is much more fascinating to me than spending a lot of time worrying about my own. I've said, 'What other people think of me is none of my business.' -Beth Broderick

I got nominated for a Tony in my Broadway debut, which was fascinating and thrilling and sort of unbelievable all at the same time. -Pablo Schreiber

Abraham is such a fascinating figure. Three world religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam – all claim him as a patriarch. He was raised in a religious home. And yet he rejected religion in order to pursue a personal relationship with God. -Anne Graham Lotz

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York. I grew up in a very Jewish neighbourhood and thought the whole world was like that. My parents were secular, but I went to a very Orthodox Jewish school, and I really got into it. I found it all fascinating, and I was just kind of really attracted to the metaphysical questions. -Larry Charles

I watched Westerns from the time I was a girl. My dad was a big Western fan. I always loved Clint Eastwood movies and 'Westworld', where the guy gets trapped in a western-themed amusement park. The western motif was fascinating to me. -Kimberly Elise

It's a fascinating job, to come in and be the most interesting person in an episode. Whoever the guest star is, that's the job – to maintain the interest and the focus for that 42 minutes or whatever, and it should be a huge relief to those people that are the leads in the shows. -Mark Sheppard

I think Latin American cultures are really rich and fascinating. I like the pomp and circumstance of some of their rituals and ceremonies. -Bitsie Tulloch

What has always made IBM a fascinating and compelling place for me is the passion of the company, and its people, to apply technology and scientific thinking to major societal issues. -Ginni Rometty

I find religion and spirituality fascinating. I would like to believe this isn't the end and there's something more, but I can't convince the rational part of me that that makes any sense whatsoever. -George R. R. Martin

I watch people from the top of buses who don't know they're being watched. It's quite fascinating. -Celia Imrie

The Internet gives you access to a lot of material, and it's fun to sit and read. I go to something like Wikipedia and look at different topics… I find the subject fascinating. I like to read about concepts and mathematicians. -Viswanathan Anand

There is something fundamentally fascinating about the mechanics, I guess, of the human body and where consciousness and mind exist, and what you can do with the mechanics of the body while keeping those intact, and where those two cross over. -Neill Blomkamp

If you're sixty-something, pushing 70, the chances of you getting a tremendously fascinating part in the movies are very low, as to be almost negligible, or even in television. But in the theatre, there are still things to do, very interesting, very profound things. -Brian Dennehy

Sometimes you resent the people you love and need the most. Love is so fascinating in all its forms, and I think everyone who has ever been a mother will relate to this. -Barbra Streisand

Forensics I've always found absolutely fascinating. Anything to do with clues. And checking things out and solving. -Sandra Bullock

Using the Internet as as vehicle to work with people is fascinating. It's sort of a Pandora's box of energy for me. -Jon Anderson

If I am totally honest, I would have to say that 'Allo 'Allo!' was not my cup of tea, even though lots of people loved it. For that reason, I find comedy fascinating. There is a huge difference between what people find funny. -Jo Brand

I've really had good luck working with younger actors. Every younger actor that I have worked with has always been really on top of their game and fascinating to watch. -Nicolas Cage

Zoology has always been interesting to me. Nature is fascinating. -Nicolas Cage

'Psycho' is fascinating philosophically, because the point of 'Psycho' is that everything that's bad happens because of love. -Penn Jillette

Everybody prefers to see a nut – they're more fascinating. -Penn Jillette

In 1989, my father died after a prolonged struggle with Alzheimer's disease. All four of his siblings followed him into the shadow lands of that fascinating, maddening affliction. -Charlie Pierce

The Hell's Angels try not to do anything halfway, and anyone who deals in extremes is bound to cause trouble, whether he means to or not. This, along with a belief in total retaliation for any offense or insult, is what makes the Hell's Angels unmanageable for the police and morbidly fascinating to the general public. -Hunter S. Thompson

I just believe that the way that young people's minds develop is fascinating. If you are doing something for a grade or salary or a reward, it doesn't have as much meaning as creating something for yourself and your own life. -Steve Wozniak

I find something fascinating about the quiet man in the background who has no desire to be the center of attention. -Christian Bale

The world is a fascinating, difficult place, and in order to take full advantage of what the planet has to offer, we need to see and hear natural things. -Bill O'Reilly

I don't really understand why everybody doesn't want to direct. It's an absolutely fascinating combination of skills required and puzzles set on every possible level, emotional and practical and technical. It calls upon such a wide variety of skills. I find it completely absorbing. -Hugh Laurie

One of the great things about the Internet is that you can read what everybody has to say about everything. It is fascinating to me, the critiques about humor by people who have no sense of humor. -Matt Groening

I love food. I mean, I really love food. I take pictures of my finest, funniest and most fascinating dishes, post them on Twitter, and send them to friends. I treat menus like classic literature, refusing to skip even one word. I read the description of every item, regardless of whether or not I'm interested in eating it. -Rachel Nichols

I think Tilda Swinton is terribly interesting. I think she's fascinating. I love her work. -Sarah Gadon

There's so many different people that I'm fascinated by. Different kinds of characters that I meet in, like, everyday life, that I'm like, 'I don't know how you exist. Like, you're so fascinating.' -Tatiana Maslany

Robert de Niro has always been fascinating to me. And if John Cazale were still alive, that would be a man I'd love to work with. I'm a big fan of Paul Thomas Anderson's films – I would be honored to work with him. I think he's a brilliant director, and he gets such compelling stories out of his actors and out of his crew. -Tatiana Maslany

To be able to travel the world, especially to places I never thought I'd be… it's really, you know, still fascinating for me. -Beyonce Knowles

At the end of the day, 'My Deaf Family' is about a typical family that all of us can identify with but told from an unusual and what I believe will be a fascinating perspective. -Marlee Matlin

In very general terms 'Top Of The Lake' is about good and evil. It's a deep dark mystery. It also deals with lots of fascinating human relationships, and it's also about the battle of the sexes. -David Wenham

Textbook science is beautiful! Textbook science is comprehensible, unlike mere fascinating words that can never be truly beautiful. Elementary science textbooks describe simple theories, and simplicity is the core of scientific beauty. Fascinating words have no power, nor yet any meaning, without the math. -Eliezer Yudkowsky

You don't have to be a Fundamentalist Christian to be interested in the Bible. It's really a fascinating mythology. -Robert Crumb

I've run into people in my life who were so dramatic; people who are so extreme and so frustrating to be around that you end up thinking about them and talking about them for literally years after your experience with them is over. I've had that happen to me, and I've seen it happen to other people. I find it fascinating. -Steve Martin

China is a great country with a great culture, populated by fascinating, industrious and talented people. -Vladimir Putin

I've been in some situations where people have treated me like a fascinating toy. You know, it's just like an interesting kind of fun thing to have a play with. It's very weird for me. I feel like a tiny baby. -Lorde

Because Bin Laden's culture doesn't permit the worship of images, they understand how powerful images are. We wouldn't have thought of creating a visual bomb. In a way, he's chopped down two iconic buildings, and used our very truth imagery, to express himself. It's fascinating… I mean, dreadful. -Alison Jackson

I'm obsessed with Michael Fassbender. He's unbelievable. I think he's a modern day Brando. Every movie that he's done in the past couple years, I just died for him. He's extremely fascinating. -Melissa Benoist

We all get given these bodies, and they're all fascinating and different… I wouldn't want to be without the wrinkles. -Miranda Hart

It's fascinating when you're from another place, but you don't speak the language. -Marcus Samuelsson

I'm not against the virtual world; it's fascinating, but I don't like the way they try to impose it on us. It's a thing imposed by rich countries. -Leos Carax

Do we change every time we have a new encounter? Are we endlessly mutable? I think these are fascinating questions: it's a rich vein to tap, and I don't think I have exhausted it fully yet. -William Boyd

I find it fascinating to see the fact that women want to buy things that they see on men. -Raf Simons

Neuroscience is exciting. Understanding how thoughts work, how connections are made, how the memory works, how we process information, how information is stored – it's all fascinating. -Lisa Randall

Working for President Nixon was the most extraordinary professional experience of my life. He was endlessly fascinating: brilliant, visionary, kind, generous, warm, funny – and yes, a good man. -Monica Crowley

Crime is interesting. It's huge and fascinating, and it's what my business, TV and film, is largely based on. But the realities are tragic, and in crime drama you rarely see the pain of bereavement or any consequences. It's reduced to a chess game. -Peter Capaldi

I find it fascinating that sport has such a strong connection to success in business. Arguably, C-suite women are some of the most successful women, and more than half of them played at a more advanced level than just the general population of women in business that had sport in their background. -Beth Brooke

My parents had a gardener when I was growing up, and he and I would dig in the dirt together – my mom and dad were definitely not digging with me!

Little did I know that 50 years later I'd be growing corn in a different way. -Howard Graham Buffett

I've written a screenplay that is a series of monologues and songs; they form this sort of human tapestry across time and place. The form is strange, but I find it really fascinating. -Patrick Wang

Living in Edinburgh, I consider myself particularly lucky – we have the biggest book festival in the world, a plethora of fascinating libraries and museums, and some of the greatest architecture in Europe. -Sara Sheridan

I think it's fascinating that clothes can drastically transform someone's mood or the way they feel about their appearance. -Dasha Zhukova

Motivation has always been a fascinating factor when considering a touring artist, especially when the years stack up. What keeps one out there year after year? -Henry Rollins

Opera is musical theatre, and the music can teach you so much about the theatre. Very often I use musical terms to think about how I comport myself on stage: I employ 'rubati,' 'ostinati,' 'cadenze.' Finding these parallels is very fascinating for me. -Toni Servillo

I have been curious about Haiti for many years. The history of the country is as fascinating as it is turbulent. -Henry Rollins

Deathstorm sees Power Ring as a fascinating experiment. Deathstorm is a scientist who's been merged with the dead body of his lab assistant. It's given him a cold demeanor and a clammy touch. -Geoff Johns

An enormous amount of ingenuity and creativity goes into commercials, and they can be fascinating if you pay attention. -Gretchen Rubin

As a kid growing up in a small town in Washington State, my only exposure to New York City was through movies. The town with its towering skyscrapers, fascinating people and teeming energy absolutely captivated me. -Robert Osborne

I came to New York, and it was fascinating and intimidating and yielding, and all the stuff it's supposed to be. But whatever the abstract essence I was seeking, I couldn't find exactly that. -Richard Greenberg

I have this exercise where I force myself to look out from the flower's point of view at these great walloping humans coming down the path, and try, just try and feel it from their point of view because it's a different world to them, a fascinating hard one. -Alice Oswald

There's a child within me. Everything is fascinating. The hunger to learn, do better and more creative things never goes. -Madhuri Dixit

I remember, as a boy of 17 years of age, this was a fascinating thing for me: how we human beings breathe out carbon dioxide into the air, the leaves of plants pick this carbon dioxide up, and the plant gives off oxygen, which we can breathe in and keep our life going. -Percy Julian

Let's be clear about one thing: a film about Katharine Hepburn is an excellent idea. She was one of the most fascinating, complex stars ever to grace a motion picture screen, and she deserves a full-scale, big-screen biographical treatment. -William J. Mann

I used to have a monthly cookery column, and am a big cook, so that whole sense of connecting what one does with food to one's cultural identity has always been fascinating to me. -Simon Schama

What's so great about playing a female lead, especially in law enforcement, is that these women do exist, and they're really quite interesting. They're fascinating. -Emily Rose

I find Maersk fascinating. It is the Coca-Cola of freight with none of the fame. Its parent company, A. P. Moller-Maersk, is Denmark's largest company, its sales equal to 20 percent of Denmark's GDP; its ships use more oil than the entire nation. -Rose George

Some of the greatest reality television we ever had was the moon landings. When you think about it, that was human emotion and people, unscripted, working with each other – and millions and millions of people around the world, glued to their television sets to share real-time in a brand new, fascinating human experience. -Chris Hadfield

The detailed geometry of the coenzyme molecule as a whole is fascinating in its complexity. -Dorothy Hodgkin

I have coaching friends, and when we get together, we often talk more about what we're doing to get players' attention than we do about the fascinating X's and O's of our sport. -Tony La Russa

Hillary Clinton is not that fascinating a person. According to those who have spent time with her, she's harsh and demanding. According to those who haven't – like her husband – she's a delight. -Ben Shapiro

The responses that environmentalists evoke – fear, anxiety, numbness, despair – are not helpful, even if they are understandable. It should be fascinating, even enthralling, to be in the milieu of environmental change. -Paul Hawken

Gossip can be entertaining: occasionally, I've heard the most fascinating things about myself I never knew. -Vanna Bonta

I can get a tune out of most things with strings, but I'm not really sure I'm what could be called a musician. I find it fascinating working with people who can play other instruments and sing. -Withered Hand

Neuroscience is by far the most exciting branch of science because the brain is the most fascinating object in the universe. Every human brain is different – the brain makes each human unique and defines who he or she is. -Stanley B. Prusiner

I study religion because I find it fascinating and problematic. But I struggle with the idea of what religion is, what being religious means. A lot of people assume that if you write about early Christianity, you must be some kind of Sunday-school teacher. -Elaine Pagels

What is clear is that the Gospel of Judas has joined the other spectacular discoveries that are exploding the myth of a monolithic Christianity and showing how diverse and fascinating the early Christian movement really was. -Elaine Pagels

The lives of those such as Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein are plainly of interest in their own right, as well as for the light they shed on the way these great scientists worked. But are 'routine' scientists as fascinating as their science? Here I have my doubts. -Martin Rees

I had a C-section, and I found it fascinating. I didn't find it a sacrifice, and I didn't find it a painful experience. I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do. -Angelina Jolie

What's fascinating to me is the way that multiple stories go into creating any world – a fictional world, but certainly the world that we live in as well. Of course, I cannot control that world. I can just control the fictional world. -Ruth Ozeki

I was in the Marine Corps in 1971. The idea 'Where does authority come from?' is fascinating to me. And also, the idea of a chaplain is fascinating to me because it's a man of the cloth in uniform, and it's the uniform of a killing machine. Back when I was in the Corps, when I saw that, I was amazed by it. -John Patrick Shanley

Families are endlessly fascinating. We all have one, and they have a great impact on who we are and what we do – Freudian as that is. -Susan Minot

Drones ply the liminal space between the physical and the digital – pilots fly them, but aren't in them. They are versatile and fascinating objects – the things they can do range from the mundane (aerial photography) to the spectacular – killing people, for example. -John Battelle

The only sci-fi movie that I've ever been offered that, had circumstances been different, I would have definitely done, was 'Avatar.' And I literally couldn't do it because of my schedule. But listening to James Cameron talk about 'Avatar' was so fascinating. Because he literally invented the world in his mind – and it literally existed. -Matt Damon

I remember visiting my grandmother Adele in Ponce Inlet, Florida, when I was three years old, and she had an IBM electric typewriter. I thought that this electric typewriter was about the most fascinating toy in the world – I liked the little bell and the sounds and the feel of the keys and especially the erase key. -Gabrielle Zevin

There are a few writers whose lives and personalities are so large, so fascinating, that there's no such thing as a boring biography of them – you can read every new one that comes along, good or bad, and be caught up in the story all over again. -Robert Gottlieb

It's always fascinating – and sometimes a little disquieting – when two first-rate critics violently disagree. -Robert Gottlieb

The thing I love about Rome is that is has so many layers. In it, you can follow anything that interests you: town planning, architecture, churches or culture. It's a city rich in antiquity and early Christian treasures, and just endlessly fascinating. There's nowhere else like it. -Claire Tomalin

I enjoy flitting around between hair colours. I find it fascinating when people think I'm naturally blonde, as I've only been blonde for about two seconds. People pay more attention to you as a blonde; it's also easier for people to assume you're a ditsy young actress. Of course, I am a ditsy young actress – well, maybe not ditsy. -Holliday Grainger

Spain is a fascinating mix of people, languages, culture and food, but if there is one thing all Spaniards share, it's a love of food and drink. -Jose Andres

'Posh' is not really political. I didn't want to aim a brickbat at the system. Or to bash Old Etonians. It was always the class and privilege aspect of that world that I was most drawn to. There is something endlessly fascinating about imagining something you could never be involved in. -Laura Wade

Maybe if I'd had more direct contact with death, I wouldn't find it so fascinating and I wouldn't write about it so much. -Laura Wade

A fascinating breed, Old Etonians. Impeccable in their social skills and very portable – you can put them anywhere, and they are absolutely charming. -Laura Wade

It's fascinating that people, there's so many people now who will make judgments based on what you look like. I'm black. So I'm supposed to think a certain way. I'm supposed to have certain opinions. I don't do that. You don't create a box and put people in and then make a lot of generalizations about them. -Clarence Thomas

I really like all of the characters in 'The Secret History' by Donna Tartt, especially Camilla, the one girl. I find her fascinating. -Hannah Murray

I think we can all learn things if we really want to. It's fascinating how that can get expedited when you have a support system around you. -Eddie Cahill

I do not know a lot about football. I guess I'm a Patriots fan because I'm from Boston? But I'm getting to know a lot more about it, and I'm finding it fascinating. -Callie Thorne

The first information I consume in the morning is probably 'The New York Times' and then my Twitter feed. I think Twitter is a really fascinating, easy way to stay on top of what stories are out there. -Uzo Aduba

I definitely read a lot of books on the psychology and mythology behind fairy tales because I think that's really fascinating and there's a lot to draw on there. -Meghan Ory

The most fascinating powers don't mean a thing if the guy's poorly motivated or dull, and the most generic powers won't hurt a well-motivated character. Personality and motivation are what make Magneto, Magneto and not Cosmic Boy. The powers work for him, but it's his motivation that makes him the character he is. -Kurt Busiek

I've always had a thing for old movies, old Hollywood. I've always just loved watching Marilyn Monroe and Greta Garbo. In all of those old movies from the '40s and '50s, women put themselves together so well, with a little bit of drama and elegance. That was fascinating to me growing up. -Tabatha Coffey

I find the songs and dances in Hindi films fascinating, and I know I will do justice to them, as I am a trained dancer. -Navi Rawat

I'd love to see a Nirvana biopic. I loved them when I was younger. I really like jazz music, so I'd like to see a Billie Holiday biopic – she was a fascinating woman. -Antonia Thomas

I always want to have San Francisco as my home and my base. I'm a business reporter – that's what I do and what I enjoy – and I don't know another place on the planet that would be as fascinating to cover. -Sarah Lacy

It's fascinating to see actors who do voiceovers every day. -Karine Vanasse

The organization that it takes to make a movie like 'Star Trek' is amazing, intimidating and fascinating. -Heather Langenkamp

I would love to do a Black Widow movie. That's perfect, I would love to do that. That character is really interesting: she doesn't have any superpowers; she just has extraordinary skills, and the world that she comes from, being this ex-K.G.B. assassin, I find that really fascinating, yeah. -Neil Marshall

'Deity' will be a compelling and exciting thriller with complex and interesting characters. A neo-realistic style to story and images will take the audience deep into Calcutta's many different levels. A fascinating clash between American and Indian culture. -Niels Arden Oplev

Neal Stephenson is great. He can write about a white wall for six pages, and it sounds fascinating. I read the whole 'Baroque Cycle' and 'Cryptonomicon.' -Daniel Suarez

The whole idea of being mesmerized and not in control of your own actions is fascinating and a little spooky. I remember hearing about someone who'd gone to a magic act, and a person in the audience had become hypnotized by observing too closely what magician was doing on stage, and thought it was spooky to lose your consciousness that way. -Chris Van Allsburg

Men need to be aware of the health of their bodies, as well – prostate cancer and breast cancer are almost on the same level. It's fascinating to me that the correlation between the two is almost the same – people don't talk about it so much, but they are almost equal in numbers. -Olivia Newton-John

It's fascinating how much of our sense of attractiveness and feminine identity is bound up in our hair. -Natalie Dormer

'Breakfast at Tiffany's' isn't a great movie because Audrey Hepburn is brilliant and everyone else isn't. It's a great movie because everybody is fascinating, and she is at the center of it being amazing. -Campbell Scott

When you look at Mark Zuckerberg and Snapchat and all these twentysomething billionaires, it's really kind of fascinating; a classic tale of the haves and have-nots. -Steven Bochco

I really just sat down to write. I mean, I did what most writers do when something happens that's overwhelming, fascinating, moving, all of that. -Patti Davis

What's so fascinating about New Yorkers is that each person has a whole lexicon of personal logic in the way that they decipher and do what has to be done to enjoy, stay alive, take pleasure in this place. -Spalding Gray

What interests me is why men think of women as witches. It's because they're so fascinating and exasperating, so other. -John Updike

The Vikings themselves are fascinating creatures. They're human beings, of course, but their ethos are so different from ours. The fact that they live as warriors – their willingness to die for the sake of what they believe in – is quite shocking to us, and it's fascinating to see. -Linus Roache

I examined a lot of CIA declassified UFO files, which are fascinating, because there was a huge UFO craze going on in America. There still is today, but it certainly started in '47. And by the '50s, it was in full force. -Annie Jacobsen

I like that I've been through things, that when something happens, it resonates with something that already happened. It's not that things like loss are more or less painful. But they're deeper. I find that fascinating. -Annette Bening

It's so fascinating to think about how each snowflake is completely individual – there are millions and millions of them, but each one is so unique. -Kate Bush

Wine to me is something that brings people together. Wine does promote conversation and promote civility, but it's also fascinating. It's the greatest subject to study.

Chicanos and running water are endlessly fascinating. I can watch them all day. -Cheech Marin

Serving jury duty is a fascinating little slice of life, with its motley crew of personalities. -Nina Garcia

What's fascinating about doing comedy about the referendum is, because it is the first time, it is the most extraordinary atmosphere. You find that if you are making jokes about politicians, it becomes intensely political. -Rory Bremner

The world is too fascinating to limit yourself to one path or one sort of people. -Melissa Marr

When you live in an environment where you aren't allowed to be fully who you are, you aren't taken seriously, and you aren't respected. What that actually does to a person's confidence and psyche is really fascinating to me. -Andre Holland

After college, I drove across the country twice with friends. It was one of the most fascinating experiences of my life. I find it really inspiring seeing the country that way. -Gia Coppola

I do find the sibling connection endlessly fascinating, as I do all family dynamics. I like how siblings seem to create their own parentless mini-civilization within a family, one that has its own laws, myths, language, humor, its own loyalties and treacheries. -Jandy Nelson

Any period is fascinating: the more ancient, the better. -Ridley Scott

I meet fascinating people I respect and idolise all the time. -Natalie Dormer

I enjoy dating. I love first dates. I think they're incredibly fascinating studies in human psychology. When you sit down across from someone on a first date and things are going alright, you talk objectives. We want to win each other over, so how do you win someone over? You have to put the best foot forward. -Chris Pine

We have our insides and our outsides, and I find the struggles between the two, as well as the occasions of harmony between the two, fascinating. -Amy Bloom

My target audience is anyone who finds the world interesting and human behavior fascinating, terrible, inspiring, funny, and occasionally, mysterious. -Amy Bloom

It took me a while to understand the meaning of a franchise: the reasons why you see lawyer, doctor, cop shows. It's not because anyone in their right mind says, 'You know, what's the most fascinating thing in the world?' It's because you need something new that happens every week in a frame. -Amy Bloom

When a translation is very good, it is fascinating to see how the book changes and yet stays the same. I think 'Out Stealing Horses' sounds more American for Americans than it does in Norway, and still, it is all there, everything that I wrote. It's amazing. -Per Petterson

I thought 'The Hot Zone' was fascinating, mesmerizing. It's one of the things that got me interested in Ebola. -David Quammen

Considering the 'Tomorrow People' are supposed to be the next step in human evolution, I think it's a fascinating idea that they can't kill. They've evolved in all these other ways, and they have these special abilities, but they can't kill. It's a very interesting concept. I really like it. I like the idea of it. -Luke Mitchell

America was founded on the fissure between slave states and free states, so these huge fault lines are just built into the American project. How we repress them, express them, deal with them, talk around them, think through them, don't think through them, is fascinating to me. -Rick Perlstein

I've been collecting articles on extremophile bacteria for at least the last ten years. I find them fascinating, whether they live in boiling pools at Yellowstone, around thermal vents at the floors of the oceans, or on Mars, where NASA has been searching for them as the first evidence of life beyond Earth. -Will Hobbs

To me, part of the fascinating profession of acting is to participate in all these strange situations, to try to understand all these interesting characters, fictitious or real, their human nature… It's extraordinarily fascinating. -Max von Sydow

New York is a fascinating city. I think it's a very inspiring city, but it's overpowering when you get older. It tires me now. But it's wonderful for young people – very inspiring and full of surprises and full of ideas. -Max von Sydow

Several of my favorite cousins and some of my best friends are lawyers, and I find the profession endlessly fascinating. -Luanne Rice

I have always been drawn to the Restoration period of Charles II. I have a soft spot for Charles Stuart, who was always loving and kind to the opposite sex. The members of his court were fascinating, and Barbara Castlemaine was one of the greatest courtesans in history. -Virginia Henley

Ultimately, auto designers need to overcome market challenges with innovative design solutions. The automotive industry is at a turning point with environmental and economic conditions on one side and breakthrough technology on the other, so it will be fascinating to see how these design leaders envision the future. -Charles Pelly

People are surprisingly off put just by saliva, the substance that you carry around in your mouth. You swallow it. You have no objection to it. But then it leaves your body, and you're just revolted. So it – that – just that right there to me is a fascinating thing. -Mary Roach

I'm drawn to the taboos that surround the human body. I find it fascinating that we are repelled by many of the acts and processes that keep us alive. -Mary Roach

The reason I like 'Breaking Bad,' which is still probably my favorite show, is Walter White. You watch him transform, and that's so fascinating. And I think. a lot of TV shows that aren't successful, it's because the characters become stagnant. -Peter Dinklage

The years of space flight since the orbiting of Sputnik I back in 1957 had produced many fascinating results, but they had also brought a realization of the many problems that surrounded the use of rockets for space flight. -Donald A. Wollheim

As a child, I amused myself by making up stories. I'd lie in bed when I was supposed to be sleeping and imagine other lands where people were doing fascinating things. By fifth grade, I knew I wanted to be a writer, but it took several more decades to really find my way as an author. -Victoria Hanley

It's certainly a cliche to remark that a nonfiction book 'reads just like a novel,' but in the case of Jonathan Eig's 'The Birth of the Pill,' I have no other recourse, since his narrative is full of larger-than-life characters sharply limned and embarked on fascinating doings, their story told in sprightly visual fashion. -Paul Di Filippo

The science-fictional motif of lethal, infectious information – bad memes – is a fascinating one, with an extended history. One of the earliest instances is Robert W. Chambers's 'The King in Yellow' from 1895. Chambers's conceit is a malevolent play: read beyond Act II, and you go mad. -Paul Di Filippo

Writing for children is my… that's my medium, you know, and the medium is the picture book, which is a very particular kind of book. I try to give children what I would give anybody, you know. I become interested in something. I find something fascinating. It has to fascinate me, and then I want to give it to them. -Mordicai Gerstein

Let's just say, if I weren't a model, I'd be a walking collage. I see my body as a blank canvas that's aching to be decorated; I find it all very fascinating. -Abbey Lee Kershaw

That's what is always fascinating about racism – how it is allowed, if not encouraged, to flourish freely in public spaces, the way racism and bigotry are so often unquestioned. -Roxane Gay

The more you learn about animals and animal rights – it's an intriguing, fascinating world. -Mona Simpson

I read a lot of books about psychopaths. I read a wonderful book Amy Hempel gave me about the guy who created criminal profiling – a fascinating book, 'Mind Hunter.' -Mona Simpson

I think the merging of high and low culture is so fascinating. -Lola Kirke

If you're an artist, you want to draw from real life; you want to draw from experiences, emotion, and it's something that a lot of musicians juggle with. I've always found it so fascinating. -Damien Chazelle

Half of my life, I've had people staring at me because they think I'm funny-looking and ugly. The other half of my life, I've had people staring at me because they think I'm fascinating. Everything neutralises. It's more of a statement on society and how weird it is. -FKA twigs

I've always been fascinated with adrenaline; it's saved my life more than once, and it's caused me to need it to save my life more than once. One of the most fascinating responses in human evolution, adrenaline sharpens your brain; it sharpens your responses. -Craig Venter

I did this film with Russell Crowe called 'The Water Diviner,' which took place just after WWI. It was fascinating because the weapons between WWI and WII were very different. I had to learn how to ride horses in a battle setting. It was important that we rode a certain way. -Jai Courtney

Bad people are, from the point of view of art, fascinating studies. They represent colour, variety and strangeness. Good people exasperate one's reason; bad people stir one's imagination. -Oscar Wilde

I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating. -Steve Jobs

I'm not just interested in fascinating faces or trees. I want to bore in deeper. -Jamie Wyeth

We all fantasize about work that uses our creativity, is self-directed, happens during the hours we choose, and occurs in an attractively lit setting with fascinating people – you know, jobs like women have on TV. -Sandra Tsing Loh

The Internet is fascinating but also stupid in a way. You only see two-dimensional images, and you think you've seen it and know it. -Florentijn Hofman

Jewish people are tough people. They believe in something and believe it really strong, and I find it fascinating that a small country like Israel is as powerful as it is. -Antonio Sabato, Jr.

'Revolutionary Road' is a fascinating study of the human condition of a fragmenting marriage and the torment that these two people put themselves through in their efforts to try and find happiness and try and stay together, actually. -Kate Winslet

It is always interesting being on films sets – I have done it before with other actor friends – and I just find it fascinating. I just love that collaborative film family that develops around a project. -Robyn Davidson

I absolutely adore cows. They're the most fascinating, gentle and beautiful animals. Their eyes are so amazing. I have ten that live on the land around my house. I love to talk to them. There are few things better than falling asleep in a field and being woken up by an inquisitive cow. -Mary Quant

There are a number of fascinating stories included in 'The Human Face of Big Data' that represent some of the most innovative applications of data that are shaping our future. -Rick Smolan

I find Facebook absolutely fascinating because I don't think there's ever been any one source that had so much information about each of us – who we talk to, who our friends are, what books we read, what we're buying, what movies we saw, what our travel is. -Rick Smolan

Directing is the best job going. I don't understand why everybody doesn't want to direct. It's an absolutely fascinating combination of skills required and puzzles set on every level – emotional and practical and technical. It calls up on such a wide variety of skills. I find it completely absorbing. I just love the whole process. -Hugh Laurie

I've been reading a lot about North Korea ever since I got the part in 'The Interview' because it's just such a fascinating place. There are so many amazing stories of bravery coming out of there. -Randall Park

We can ask ourselves why we invent God, and then, ten minutes later, we invent Satan – why? Because we need him; there's something fascinating about the other side of the coin. -Mads Mikkelsen

My mentor in college was Stephen Shore. I loved his color palettes and his taking mundane things but finding them fascinating. -Gia Coppola

I love history, and Churchill is one of my favorite people to study. He's a fascinating, fascinating man. -Douglas Booth

I was thinking recently, I've always loved the ocean. If I could do it all again, I might do an oceanography degree. You can do ocean archaeology, and I thought that might be fascinating to do – man-made structures, where the sea has risen above the structures. -Theo James

Technology is fascinating. -Thomas Bangalter

What woman wouldn't want to be pursued in a flattering, non-physically threatening way by a gorgeous, fascinating, intelligent man? Being wanted, desired, being the focus of a man's aspirations, his goal, his grail – the one companion he must have to live contentedly – is one of the most universal and fundamental of female wishes. -Stephanie Laurens

My parents had never been to Germany. But I knew what I didn't want to write about, and I didn't want to write about Edinburgh. A lot of writers find Edinburgh fascinating, but I never did. As a matter of fact, I couldn't wait to get away from it. -Philip Kerr

History is another country and might be full of fascinating incidents and places to go visit – but as a destination for emigration, it has some problems! -Charles Stross

Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that.

We are all in this life together. -Linda Thompson

There are so many different worlds in Long Island. That's why it's so fascinating. Between Great Neck and Montauk, there are 10,000 worlds. -Susan Isaacs

I want to do more audio originals because I think that it is a fascinating medium. If you think about it, this is original storytelling. -David Hewson

I love biographies. I'm especially into stuff about Hollywood in the '40s and '50s. I find it fascinating and terrifying. -Katie Findlay

I'm slightly obsessed with drag queens and performers. Their quips and their one-liners, their style, their singing… I find it fascinating. And thoroughly entertaining. I'd love to play one. -Russell Tovey

The most fascinating person is always the one of the most winning manners; not the one of greatest physical beauty. -Orison Swett Marden

My youngest sister belonged to a group called the Twelve Tribes for many years. She recently left, with her husband and four children. Talking to her about her experiences in the group is fascinating, moving, and enlightening. -Kate Christensen

For me, graffiti writers were always the fascinating eccentrics of hip-hop culture. What they do is secretive by definition, and not remunerative in any way. -Adam Mansbach

I think place and time for me is often a matter of convenience, something I can use to another end rather than something I'm trying to define because it's somehow fascinating to me in itself. It's more what the place can do for the larger goals I have for the work. -Alice McDermott

India's a fascinating country. It's constantly changing, but there's still a lot of superstition and backwards thinking. -Lillete Dubey

In actuality, 'Sammy's House' can and should be read as an entirely fictional comedy set in a fascinating political world. -Kristin Gore

One of the fascinating things about researching Heaven and Hell is, of course, the fact that there are so few descriptions of Heaven, because most people can't really explain what it would be like beyond a couple of sentences, whereas Hell is quite often personal. -Tad Williams

Once, the world was full of mysteries, some of them frightening, some of them wonderful, some of them merely fascinating. Now, it can be a banal and predictable place, the tracks of daily life so well-beaten and defined, our culture awash with the imbecile obvious, our existence suffocating in safety. But mysteries remain. -Nick Davies

I write to satisfy the story or poem or piece of fascinating research that speaks to me. To rub a sore, to resonate with joy, to answer a question no one else has satisfactorily answered for me. -Jane Yolen

'Downton Abbey' didn't have the impact it had just because it was a good story about people. It was something about that period and that world that was fascinating to people on a level that wasn't just as an entertainment. -Noah Hawley

To me, families are fascinating. I choose to explore it through comedy and through comic situations. -Kevin Kwan

I've always been drawn to the Edwardian period in England. To me, it seems like such a fascinating time, when the British Empire was at the height of its powers and the strict mores of the Victorian age were dissipating into the decadence of King Edward's reign. -Kevin Kwan

I entered economics because of a course I took on 'information economics,' which I found fascinating. -Eric Maskin

'Coriolanus' deals with the birth of democracy. And that has been fascinating because I've been talking about politics so much because of 'Borgen.' It's a nice bridge. -Birgitte Hjort Sorensen

The novel 'World War Z' is told from the perspectives of so many people – speaking to the narrator – that there's no way a movie could capture all of them. Still, the idea of turning a zombie pandemic into a war story is fascinating and could have translated easily to film. -Annalee Newitz

There was an ingredient used in perfumes and remedies in the Middle Ages called 'momie' that is certainly one of the most fascinating I've come across. -M. J. Rose

You shouldn't talk about yourself all the time – most of us aren't for sale. Our books are. Talk about them. It's not a question of whether or not you're fascinating on a personal level – it's that your trivia and trials might not have any connection to the tone, tenor and sense of your books. -M. J. Rose

The 'Station to Station' film has been fascinating to create. It feels as though it made itself in a way, and after awhile, the film told us what it needed and began to sculpt itself. -Doug Aitken

I was reading about all of these medical and psychological experimental programs that the government and various intelligence agencies had run throughout the 20th century. Any book you can read on that, there's some really horrifying and fascinating stuff that goes on there. -Caitlin Kittredge

TED Women isn't championing a cause; it's surfacing and sharing some of the most important ideas of our time. Our focus is on women as change agents, innovators and idea champions, and I think people will be both inspired and surprised by the program. We're exploring some fascinating territory! -Pat Mitchell

I've always been interested in family secrets and what happens behind closed doors. I find that fascinating and creepy – that's why I read: because I want to know other people's secrets. -Ottessa Moshfegh

Rich people are so eccentric, and I don't think people really realize. Especially by the turn of the century, they were living like rappers, and there was no income tax. They are some of the most fascinating people, and I am endlessly fascinated. -Riki Lindhome

A mutation can create an alternative form of a phenomenon – a phenotype or trait – and we can learn a lot by seeing this alternative state. Once I saw a mouse with no eyelids.

As a boy, I had two small aquaria in our backyard in which I watched, each spring, the nest building and other fascinating behaviours of sticklebacks. -Nikolaas Tinbergen

I'm dying to fool around with the distance between Selina Kyle and Catwoman. And, you know, the whole double identity thing is endlessly fascinating. I mean, you can always find another riff for it. -Ann Nocenti

I love artists. I find them fascinating. To me, there really is a genuine magic in what they do. -Elizabeth Hand

There's so much that we just accept, but the reasons behind how certain rules came to be are so fascinating and funny, it just increases your affection for language. -Ursula Dubosarsky

For my books of nonfiction I write about subjects I find fascinating. I've been a Yankees and a Lou Gehrig fan for decades, so I wrote 'Lou Gehrig: The Luckiest Man.' It's more the story of his great courage than of his baseball playing. Children face all sorts of challenges, and it's my hope that some will be inspired by the courage of Lou Gehrig. -David A. Adler

I'm doing a film called 'Black Mass' where I play James Bulger. The reason to play him is obvious to me. He's a fascinating character. It's not like anything I've done before on that level. I'm very excited to slide into that skin for a little bit. -Johnny Depp

Unlike many other places, Hilo is more fascinating on closer acquaintance – so fascinating that it is hard to write about it in plain prose. -Isabella Bird

Back home, almost everything I did, I did in Hebrew. I went to drama school in Hebrew, my whole career was in Hebrew, and to switch languages was something that was fascinating and more complicated than I expected it to be, even though I've been speaking English since I could speak. -Yael Grobglas

I always thought that at the very time of your life when you want to be cool and sexy and fascinating, you are none of those things. You are a hormonal muddle in your school uniform sitting in double science looking at a boy who you know will never notice you. That was definitely me; I was so shy at school. -Emily Berrington

I don't use recurring characters. I do get very interested in my characters while I'm working with them, and I find the process of fitting them into a story, and allowing them to create the story around themselves, fascinating. But no, I don't imagine they have a life outside of what I make for them. -Jessica Abel

I had studied Russian in college. I had gotten into it first through literature and then just really found it kind of fascinating; of course, this was during the Cold War. So they were kind of the other great enemy that you grew up hearing about. -Scott Shane

As I continue to write as M. O'Keefe, I find myself following darker story lines. Plots I might have flinched away from I now rush toward. Using sex as a tool to tell women's stories is endlessly fascinating. -Molly O'Keefe

Dance music is no longer a simple Donna Summer beat. It's become a whole language that I find fascinating and exciting. Eventually, it will lose the dance tag and join the fore of rock. -David Bowie

There's a behind-the-scenes show that Oprah is doing that follows the final season of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' I find behind-the-scenes stuff fascinating. Like, whenever I watch a DVD, I always watch the special features and listen to the commentary first, before I even watch the movie. -Brendan Robinson

There's magic all around us: Our smartphones are magical, 3-D printers are magical. So I feel that as a magician, if I can pull off something that seems real and convincing enough that I can explain why it's happening and have people believe it, it really is fascinating. And funny. -Michael Carbonaro

You can do fascinating things with the tricks memory can play and tell. People can come to believe things which didn't happen at all if they're told them enough times. -Paula Hawkins

I am interested in the ordinary sort of threat. I know that people are interested in things like serial killers and what have you, but actually, those aren't the sort of crimes that really happen very much. The sort of crimes that happen tend to be more of a domestic nature and quite banal, but the psychology behind them is always fascinating. -Paula Hawkins

I sensed that Confucius is an interesting character. This is someone who lived over 2,500 years ago and is still speaking to us. That people are still reading and repeating what he said so long ago is something I find quite fascinating. -Russell Freedman

I've surfed the Web and the whole dating connection. I find that pretty fascinating, but no real leads. -Taylor Hicks

What I find fascinating is the idea that we all have a physical brain, but we also have this mental part, and we have to figure out how they work together. -Sam Kean

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,' while not nearly the masterpiece proclaimed by many critics, is certainly a fascinating cross-species: a big-budget summer action fantasy with a sylvan, indie-film vibe, and a war movie that dares ask its audience to root for the peacemakers. -Richard Corliss

'Under the Skin' is handsome, in a dour way, but inert – a cunning experiment that died in the shooting or on the editing table. You'll want to get the DVD, though, and not just for its study of Scarlett. Odds are that the Making-Of documentary will be far stranger and more fascinating than the movie that was made. -Richard Corliss

The world of classical music is so fascinating. It's a world that encompasses people from everywhere and erases the basic restraints of nationality; everyone is united by this common language of music. -Gael Garcia Bernal

It sounds ghoulish, but it would have been fascinating to be in Paris in 1789 and watch the revolution begin. I can't even imagine what the energy must have been like that year with all of that change crackling in the air. -Deanna Raybourn

Even the two novels I've written were based on true stories. It's how I'm wired – real life is fascinating and fantastical enough. The kind of journalism I did unpeeled lids from cans otherwise sealed. -Peter Landesman

I've tried, in 'Bloodmoney,' to tell a story that gets at the crazy relationship between the ISI and the CIA, these absolutely fascinating, often mutually destructive two scorpions in a bottle kind of relationship that they have. -David Ignatius

I've always loved both writing and songwriting. The journey is fascinating to me. -Manika

I think we're just scratching the surface. One of the most exciting aspects of 23andMe is that we're enabling you to watch a revolution unfold live during your lifetime, and I think that the decoding of the genome, in my opinion, is the most fascinating discovery of our lifetime, and you get to be part of it. -Anne Wojcicki

It must have been fascinating for Bono to have Johnny Cash do a cover of his song, and hear how he translates the words that he has used. And it would be fascinating to see a great director do his take on my work. -Daniel Espinosa

I work with a lot of scientists, and one of the frustrating things they find is that all this fascinating stuff is being done which doesn't find its way into science fiction. They say look at the science fact pages – they're so much more imaginative than science fiction. -Geoff Ryman

Science is to do research because of the target's fascinating and interesting characteristics. -Masatoshi Koshiba

With all of the people in Cuba who I met – many of them hugely heroic figures – I found learning about their complexity and richness and contradictions just really fascinating, and it was fulfilling to be able to offer a different side to them, to be able to have some kind of unique takeaway from the official narrative. -Brin-Jonathan Butler

Police work was fascinating, and I didn't imagine that acting was something a kid from San Mateo, California, could really pursue. -Michael Trucco

Body language is more fascinating to me than actual language. -Michelle Yeoh

The social dimension of the art world is fascinating to me, but I also want to entertain the reader, so I will let a character say something funny. -Rachel Kushner

Italy in the Seventies seems like a fascinating place. -Rachel Kushner

There's something quite fascinating with crooks and criminals and all things against the law. -Jason Statham

If you put four different people on a podium conducting the same downbeat, you get four different sounds. It's a little mysterious and fascinating. There's so much you can do with motions and body movements besides giving accurate beats. -Itzhak Perlman

I first thought about doing a project about Anna Wintour and 'Vogue' when I read an article in 'New York Magazine' about the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute Ball, the annual fundraising gala that Anna oversees. It created such a fascinating portrait that I couldn't help but be compelled. -R. J. Cutler

I have interviewed Hugo Chavez, Tim McVeigh, and hundreds of fascinating characters in South America, where I have lived for the past 15 years. -Jonathan Franklin

Even in my comedies, I don't take anger as a joke. I think anger and laughter are very close to each other, when you think about it. One of the things I like about a character: I always think it's fascinating when a character can turn on a dime and go from one emotion to another. I like watching that. -Albert Brooks

At this point in my career, 'Scream' is one of the longest running stories I've told. It's fascinating to still have actors who are very much into continuing their roles and have great chemistry. -Wes Craven

I like stories in specific time periods. 'The Revenant's' era of American history was fascinating because it was this lawless no-man's land. It defined the idea of the American frontiersman as man conquering nature. In a way, the story of Hugh Glass is about man dominating nature. -Leonardo DiCaprio

Of course all novelists are egomaniacs and want to draw everyone to their fold just like any other preacher. The snake-oil peddler, the false prophet, all of this is fascinating to me. But I certainly hope that I'm more humane than that. -T. C. Boyle

One of the most exciting aspects of 23andMe is that we're enabling you to watch a revolution unfold live during your lifetime, and I think that the decoding of the genome, in my opinion, is the most fascinating discovery of our lifetime, and you get to be part of it. -Anne Wojcicki

The well-known inspiration for 'Ulysses' is made clear by the title itself: Joyce's novel is based on Homer's 'Odyssey', under the ever-fascinating premise that all of Odysseus' extraordinary adventures can be experienced by a modern man in a single day, provided that the writing consists of his mental activity. -Alvaro Enrigue

That world of spies and espionage, there's a coldness to it. That's what makes those worlds fascinating – and what makes le Carre's work so interesting. -Elizabeth Debicki

My past seems to be way more fascinating for people than my future, which bums me out. -Selena Gomez

I think the single most important, fascinating, and complex aspect of human nature is that we all know, deep down, that we are not what we ought to be – or as John Doe says in 'Seven,' 'We are not what was intended.' -Scott Derrickson

I was genuinely lucky to have the professors I did, many of whom took a very humanist approach in teaching history that went beyond memorizing dates and battles and all of that – basically, looking at the life of individuals throughout history, aided by fascinating primary sources. -Alexandra Bracken

When we meet people who are astronauts or deal in astronomy, it's always really fascinating. -John Legend

Anyone driving great social change, willingly or not, is going to be a fascinating contradictory mix of idealism and ego. -Riz Ahmed

I was born in the 1980s, so learning about the late 1960s was really fascinating, not only just because of the way things looked and sounded but because of what was going on in society at that time. -Claire Holt

The most fascinating part is how fashion just attracts all these social rejects, if you will, from around the world, encourages individuality. They're the people who make the industry tick. -Imran Amed

One person I find fascinating is J.Crew's Mickey Drexler. I would love to get into that brain and see how it works. -Imran Amed

I'm okay with the path that I'm on, but it's fascinating to think, 'I could've been a gay guy in Key West. I could be working at an insurance company in Lansing. But somehow, this is what's happening.' -Josh Malerman

I don't dig Trump or follow what he has to say, but I find it fascinating that he's surfaced in the political arena. But I'm a Hillary supporter, and I don't go the Trump way. -Jeff Bridges

I'm not into sports, and politics is kind of my sport. I love talking about it and debating it and getting into it. I also think people on both sides of the aisle have real exaggerated, incorrect views of the other side, and that is fascinating to me. -Nicholas Stoller

Sisters, to me, are fascinating because it is a unique connection of the coming together of connection and competition. The fact that you have these age differences is a built-in power struggle, and the fact that you're all trying to get attention and resources from the same parents creates competition. -Deborah Tannen

Birth order is fascinating, and it is forever. -Deborah Tannen

The debate about who decides what gets taught is fascinating, albeit excruciating for those who have to defend the schools against bunkum. -Ian Hacking

Surrounded by high-paid publicity people and professional ego massagers, movie stars, like politicians, almost invariably come to believe that they are nicer, more charming, and more beloved than they appear to be to a casual observer, and that their stories about their careers are universally fascinating. -Michael Korda

I auditioned for 'Loving' two years before we started shooting, so in the hopes that I would be playing Mildred, I watched it again. Also it's one of the best documentaries I've seen. I found this couple interminably fascinating; even if I didn't get the part, I just wanted to know more about them and their story. -Ruth Negga

Cultural concepts are one of the most fascinating things about historical fiction. There's always a temptation, I think, among some historical writers to shade things toward the modern point of view. You know, they won't show someone doing something that would have been perfectly normal for the time but that is considered reprehensible today. -Diana Gabaldon

It's a very fascinating thing for an actor to play somebody who is suffering, and you have to express the suffering, but in an inarticulate way and sometimes a dysfunctional way, through violence. -Eddie Marsan

To me, there's so much we don't understand about our world, and I think it's really fascinating to see these people come up with the stuff that they come up with. -Elizabeth Reaser

Seattle is still more Caucasian than most medium-sized cities. The sort of psychosexual politics of white fandom in context of black athletes who are also both very rich and slightly angry is just, to me, bottomlessly fascinating. -David Shields

Though finally overwhelmed by a preening lassitude, 'Hotel' is never less than fascinating, breaking into multiscreen scenarios like Mr. Figgis's 2000 experiment, 'Timecode.' -Elvis Mitchell

Mr. Miyazaki's specialty is taking a primal wish of kids, transporting them to a fantasyland, and then marooning them there. No one else conjures the phantasmagoric and shifting morality of dreams – that fascinating and frightening aspect of having something that seems to represent good become evil – in the way this master Japanese animator does. -Elvis Mitchell

We should explore ways to make us a more amazing species. A more fascinating society. We should embrace our innovations and evolve with them. -Brad Feld

A fascinating reaction of the human brain when we fail to meet a goal is that it tells us to throw caution to the wind and make things even worse, which ultimately leads to us giving up. -Fabrizio Moreira

I'm finding writing very fascinating. -Eve Arden

I thought there was something intrinsically fascinating about people who communicate for a living and are incapable of communicating in their personal lives. -Rebecca Hall

When I was a little girl, my dream was just to hear my song on the radio. It was very fascinating to me, and I was like, 'How do I do that?' Now it's like, 'Oh my God, my song is on the radio!' -Bebe Rexha

That unpredictable game here in England, that makes it so fascinating for the fans, because you never know what will happen. -Pep Guardiola

There are roles out there and women out there that are fascinating to me, and there are things in our culture that I see that I want to express. It's my passion to express that. -Parker Posey

I don't eat white breads, and I'm off dairy due to an allergic reaction and because of what it does to the body. I've learnt a lot about different foods and how the body breaks it down and what happens when we eliminate or incorporate certain foods, and it's pretty fascinating! -Nargis Fakhri

Would I tweet if I didn't run for office? Maybe, but I'd certainly use Twitter to stay abreast of warp-speed happenings in the world and to enjoy the musings of smart, fascinating people. Twitter is a neat, one-stop compilation of smart, incisive viewpoints on every imaginable topic from a riveting cross-section of folks. -Don Willett

It's fascinating to go somewhere where you're away from everything. There are no houses, no buildings, no roads, no people. And for a little less extreme hunting, any place in the West – Colorado, Utah, Montana – that's just beautiful country. -Shawn Michaels

For fitness, I've just bought a watch which keeps a track of how many calories I burn, what's my heart rate, which is very fascinating. -Yami Gautam

To me it was fascinating, the idea of going to university and studying a subject – architecture – that I had already faced in building some small houses. -Mario Botta

I found the brick-making process fascinating – how, after being burnt, the brick would come out strong. I liked to sit on the stack of bricks and look as far as I could. I'd do the same at a hillock near my school – just sit on top at leisure and enjoy the feeling of being on top of the world. -Nawazuddin Siddiqui

I kind of discovered Kolkata when I was shooting here for 'Kahaani.' I found the city fascinating. -Nawazuddin Siddiqui

I went around Coimbatore quite often while I was shooting for Velayudham. It's a fascinating place with a lot of energy. -Hansika Motwani

I've obviously always been aware of actor-oriented films, being an actor. Altman and Cassavetes were really strong. And then I realized their structures were quite fascinating, too. -John Cameron Mitchell

Germany's fascinating. It's a really rich landscape to film and dramatise. -Claire Danes

I know it's become an ongoing thing about whether videogames are art, and I think there's plenty of examples of things that use the form in a fascinating way. Things that are more surreal or artistic, like 'Katamari Damacy' or 'Vib-Ribbon.' -Edgar Wright

The making of documentaries for 'Humanoids From The Deep,' 'Galaxy Of Terror' and 'Forbidden World' are absolutely fascinating. -Edgar Wright

It's constantly fascinating for me that something that feels absolutely right one year, 12 months later feels like the wrong thing to do. -Damian Lewis

When I hosted 'Win, Lose or Draw,' it was always fascinating to me that no one knew where anything was when they had to draw a destination. -Vicki Lawrence

Trying to find a way to represent something that is truly frightening on stage is a fascinating challenge. -Elizabeth Marvel

The Christian kids' movies are fun because so many of them are made with low production value, but they're still trying to appeal to a broad audience like a Sesame Street or something. It's always fascinating to see how hidden or obvious they want to make their message. Also, the acting in them can be pretty fun. -Kyle Mooney

I think humans are fascinating in general. We're so weird. We do so many quirky things, and we don't even know it. There's just so many layers upon layers of nuances in everything we do, and the most fun part as an actor is trying to get into all those nuances, whether they're conscious or unconscious. -Yvonne Strahovski

My dad was in these pretty big films that were relevant to my age group. I remember him doing 'Richie Rich' when I was eight-years-old, and then 'Jumanji.' I remember going to these sets, and I loved being on film sets. I just found it fascinating watching how stories were made. -Georgia King

If you think about work, it's just this endlessly fascinating subject. We spend at least half of our waking hours working. So it becomes this incredible window into a whole variety of things: who we are human beings, how the economy works, how people relate to each other, how stuff is made, how the world spins on its axis. -Daniel H. Pink

What is fascinating to me is the way I view everything in terms of parallels and connections. When I read about Achilles and Odysseus in Homer's 'Iliad,' I can see parallels in Chinese historical romances, in the way the first emperor of the Han dynasty and his chief rival are portrayed. -Ken Liu

Most of my interviews have been with millennials, and it's been a fascinating window into my kids' world. It's been so wonderful to see a generation that seems so savvy in so many ways – and so much cooler than we were. -Marcia Clark

'Sopranos' was a fascinating moment, just catching our whole culture by surprise, a fun ride to be on while I'm learning the craft. -Steven Van Zandt

Human beings are fascinating with religion and stories about not dying. Or dying and being brought back to life. I think it's just part of our make up. -Martin Landau

As cognitive beings, we rationalise everything. So, I think that's why nemeses are, in general, fascinating to observe, because they decide to act on feelings that we, most of the time, rationalise. -Sofia Boutella

I love fiction, you know? I find it fascinating. So when film really does go into fictional places, that's the most exciting for me. And when the fiction is about the person rather than about the place, that's even more exciting. -Holly Hunter

Helen Mirren is, I think, one of the fascinating actresses. Period. She captivates people and has tremendous power and charisma because she has never cashed in on being an exquisite beauty, even though I think she is. I can't say I'm anything like her, but I hope something similar will happen with me. -Holly Hunter

Most people who are really, enduringly interested in something eventually find that it's important, too – and important to other people. Very few people can keep going their whole life doing something and feel like it's merely personally fascinating. -Angela Duckworth

When I first got started in this whole world of online connecting, we were combating this antiquated stereotype of who used online dating, and we really set out to make it popular with millennials. What I find to be so fascinating now is, I'm seeing an inverse in that trend. -Whitney Wolfe Herd

Cultural concepts are one of the most fascinating things about historical fiction. -Diana Gabaldon

You see one scene shot 25 times in one day, which is totally fascinating, but while you're watching it, you're remembering, 'This is what I was thinking when I was writing that part of the book,' and so it brings it all back very gradually as you're working. -Diana Gabaldon

I think that's the fascinating thing about the '70s is that it turns out it was quite a dark decade. But, like, who knew? -Boy George

To me, 'Unforgiven' is one of the best films ever made. Aside from the fact it takes the genre and kicks it between its legs, it's this fascinating deconstruction of the myth of the West. -Taylor Sheridan

Josh Brolin is fascinating to watch because he is just so effortless. It's like watching a really gifted athlete run, and I just didn't have that. -Taylor Sheridan

Some of the most fascinating scenes in 'Unforgiven,' for me, is that scene with Gene Hackman where he's talking about the Duke of Death that Richard Harris played, and he's basically demolishing this myth of this man very unwesternly – not what you expect in a western. -Taylor Sheridan

I know where TNT's sweet spot is, and when I read 'Perception,' I thought, 'This is a chance to play a fascinating, fun, challenging character but still within the realm of something that will sit very well with 'The Closer' and 'Major Crimes' and the other shows there.' -Eric McCormack

Oh, I'm obsessed with the Kardashians. Not the way that I think a 13- or 14-year-old girl would be, but I find them fascinating. They are so rich. They are also, at the end of the day, women of color. -Jessica Williams

I think women can tell the most profound and interesting and fascinating stories. -Jessica Williams

It's fascinating, isn't it, that whereas so many of our statues have been of military leaders, now it may well be sports stars who are the ones more likely to be so honored. -Frank Deford

I have a nostalgia for the years I was growing up and experiencing new things for the first time – so the late '80s and early '90s are always fascinating to me. Those were the times that I was being informed about a lot of my tastes, and so the memories are fused with a lot of emotion. -Jeremy Scott

I'm just so used to music videos or live TV, so to really see something that's scripted and you have to do it over and over again to get every angle – it's fascinating to me. I would love to do a little acting. -Maren Morris

First season of 'Survivor' – Richard Hatch was fascinating. -Brian J. Smith

Sportswriting is fascinating – descriptions of the opponents and the details of an event in which someone is going to win and someone is going to lose. Life is much longer and more complicated, and the outcomes are less clear-cut. -Gilda Radner

Hawaii and Fiji are two of the best island groups in the world to visit as a vacationer. The great hotels, the fascinating local people, the exciting history of the two contrasting island groups, and the unmatched scenery make these two of the most enticing stopovers. -James A. Michener

What's not fascinating about 'Wonder Woman?' She's powerful. She's strong. She gets her strength from other women. She kicks butt in the world. You know, she's bulletproof, which is appealing. But she also has the Lasso of Truth. That's the thing I would want most, that Lasso of Truth. Because in politics, it would be very handy. -Betsy Hodges

Buttons, for me, are very sculptural things, and they are so fascinating. -Jonathan Anderson

I find it very difficult to see the boundary between womenswear and menswear. It's bizarre the ways in which society reacts; they find it difficult to comprehend seeing parts of the body on a man. I think it's fascinating. -Jonathan Anderson

Golf is the most fascinating game, but other people's game is the most boring thing. -Ronnie Corbett

Ulrik Ottinger was the most real and experimental of all the German New Wave directors. She was probably the most out-there, too. She's a fascinating artist in that world. -Richard Linklater

The truth is, there are so many terrific places in New York because it's the greatest city in the world, and there are so many fascinating places to see that, frankly, it's humbling. -Paul Rudd

Some families can experience terrible tragedy and deal with it, and others not. I find those things fascinating. -Sissy Spacek

I think camp is a really fascinating thing, and it's hard to define and hard to apply consciously. It's almost something you take from material that's already existed in the world, a reading of the world. But I think it speaks of a long tradition of gay reading of the world, before gays were allowed to be visible. -Todd Haynes

I look forward to being part of the ASUS family and its fascinating growth journey in India. -Disha Patani

Cryptoeconomics is so fascinating to study because it's a combination of technology, economics, and psychology. -Nick Tomaino

I played at being someone else in movies and live theater, and at being myself in life's most intense, fascinating game – the game of love. -Monica Vitti

If you ask anybody at Microsoft, could they spend more money, all of them would say yes. They should say that! They should say, 'Yes, I have so many terrific innovative, interesting, awesomely impactful ideas that you have to get me more money.' I love that. I love that energy, and I listen to some really fascinating arguments. -Amy Hood

When Dad came home from work, he'd turn our family dinners into tutorials on business, money, sales, and profit margins. He shared fascinating stories about his customers, marketing, and my favorite topic when I was a kid – new product launches. Our father also took us to his office before the advent of 'Take Your Child to Work Day.' -Denise Morrison

I hate the word 'feminine!' I mean, there is a woman and a man, and when I say 'woman,' it suggests all that is radiant, tender, fascinating, gentle, demoniac, exaggerated! 'Feminine' makes me think of somebody who is spindly and over-sweet – I don't like that! -Sonia Rykiel

The natures of men and women are very mixed, and for me, the most fascinating type of woman is the one who is a little masculine, has a little of the man in her, and the sort of man who is fabulous is the one who is a little woman, too. It's impossible not to mix them! -Sonia Rykiel

I'm still a bit of a reading glutton, I think, because I browse, read a bit of the back copy, flip through the book, read a bit of the text, and if it still seems fascinating, I read it. That's why my bedside table is so cluttered: I want to imbibe it all. -Jesmyn Ward

I've always thought Shawn Michaels's story is fascinating. -Daniel Bryan

The history of the business is very fascinating to me. -Dean Ambrose

Bitcoin is really a fascinating example of how human beings create value, and is not always rational… tt is not a rational currency in that case. -Alan Greenspan

Global affairs consultant Ian Bremmer, founder of the Eurasia Group, has started a newsletter called 'Signal,' aimed at millennials. For years, Bremmer has written a maddeningly all-lowercase yet fascinating weekly newsletter on geopolitics. -Adam Lashinsky

In the fact that 'Vogue' is someone that can help guide enormous audiences through this fascinating world, I would like to think we are as influential and actually are now reaching so many more people than we ever dreamt of back in the Fifties or the Sixties. -Anna Wintour

To me, fashion is ceaselessly fascinating because it is an expression of self. -Anna Wintour

I've always been drawn to the extremes of human behavior, and crime fiction is a great way to explore the lives and stories of fascinating people. -Nick Petrie

I've been writing big stories of history, but there are a lot of fascinating little stories. -H. W. Brands

Fashion world is a unique one, and I love being part of it! I find it fascinating. -Vittoria Ceretti

My father has been a major force in the popular culture for a long, long time. He's a fascinating person. -Owen King

It was really fascinating for everyone involved in 'Fargo' that Marge Gunderson became the iconic character she did. I think it was something about the cultural zeitgeist and what was happening with women in the workplace. -Frances McDormand

How do people move on after they've lost the love of their life? It's a really interesting thing to look at. It happens to people every day: you see people… even in the worst, most war-torn places, people get up and continue with their lives. And it's a fascinating thing about human nature. That ability to just continue on. -Caitriona Balfe

In drama, you're interacting with other actors to tell the story. The camera is like the theater: it's the artistic fourth wall. In a screen play, you don't look at the camera and communicate with it. But with hosting, you're looking right into the lens and talking to the people. It is a different style, and it's fascinating. -Peter Graves

You cannot simplify human intelligence, emotion, and growth. To watch the frills and furbelows of a human psyche is fascinating. -Peter Graves

I've found you don't have to make anything up. Reality is so complex and fascinating and horrible and beautiful. -Richard Belzer

The Kennedy assassination is one of the ghostliest parts of our history. The Kennedy family – that's our royalty. It's fascinating and tragic and just strikes to the heart of our country. Here's the youngest president ever, full of hope and promise, and he made government service seem like it was dignified. -Richard Belzer

Someone else's paper is fascinating until you buy it yourself. Then it loses its appeal, and you have to pass it on to someone else to reinvigorate it. -Julian Treasure

We always think of misdirection as, 'Look over here while I do this over here!' And that's not what it is. You can be looking straight at it, and if you're not thinking about it, you won't process it. I find that fascinating. -Apollo Robbins

The decision to use recognition as an on-the-spot bonus instead of merely pay increases is a fascinating one, because pay increases can create new mental anchors for how much the person feels happy earning, whereas the social recognition program is ongoing, unexpected, and harder to form a mental anchor around. -Shawn Achor

I think it's fascinating that people take an interest in a middle-aged married couple and what happens behind our closed front door. -Trudie Styler

I'm one of these people who tends to think that the ordinary people are more fascinating than the celebrities and even the politicians. -Matt Lauer

I just found the piano so fascinating and wonderful, and I begged my parents to buy me one. In the end, they bought me a toy piano and eventually an upright piano, and I started lessons. -Stephen Hough

Family relationships are just so fascinating – how they shape you as a person, how you can wound each other, how you're imprinted in a way by your family and the conditions under which you grow up. -Vanessa Kirby

I'm a big fan of talking about God. Whether people believe in God or not, that's so fascinating. Or where you go when you die is fascinating. -Andy Grammer

I like history because you can't really progress without knowing what comes before you, so I think it's super fascinating. -Laurie Hernandez

I find the most normal things about famous people to be the most fascinating. -Abbi Jacobson

In 'The X-Men' world, one can be a hero one day and a villain the next, which means there's a constant battle for a character's soul that's dynamic. I find that really fascinating. -Noah Hawley

What I found fascinating for me was, I've never gotten so much approval and accolades and warmth and congratulations as when I had a guy on my arm that people thought I was going to marry. It was amazing. I mean, nobody congratulated me that hard when I had my three children. -Shonda Rhimes

It's the mix of the trivial and the great events that make up history. It's the low things about high people that make it fascinating, and that's why it would be a shame to exclude the trivial things. That mixing up is not just at the heart of history. It's at the heart of how to live a great life. -Simon Sebag Montefiore

There are some good space battles in some of the later series, but that wasn't why you were tuning in every week. You were tuning in every week because Spock was a fascinating character. Because his friendship with Kirk was profound and really unusual. -Ronald D. Moore

I don't know why, but American sci-fi writers seem to focus on the near-future, which has given us Brits a clear run at the most fascinating. -Alastair Reynolds

Proper stupidity is fascinating. -Ricky Gervais

Dramas about addiction can be exciting to watch. And then dispiriting. Exciting because degradation is fascinating to follow from the relative safety and smugness of an 'appropriate' life, and dispiriting because if all that sad mayhem can happen to this or that character, what's to keep it from happening to me or you? -Hilton Als

Claude Cahun is a fascinating artist – one of the few women to be part of the surrealist movement, she and her partner Suzanne Malherbe took on men's names and made artworks that investigated female identity long before 'The Second Sex' or Cindy Sherman. -Naomi Alderman

The idea of wanting to do something that's completely natural and then having to repress it is something that I find fascinating. -Michaela Coel

I find these dramas fascinating – it's a world that many of us fortunately don't dip into. The legal system is all around us, but the majority of us don't have to go into a court, so it's a way into another world that is unusual. -Maxine Peake

My aunt played upright bass in the Louisville Orchestra, and I was always really impressed by her musical ability. I found it really fascinating as a kid that one could play music for a living. -Jim James

I found the Internet really fascinating. -Gillian Tans

I am hopeful that the concept of 'cultural appropriation' is a passing fad: people with different backgrounds rubbing up against each other and exchanging ideas and practices is self-evidently one of the most productive, fascinating aspects of modern urban life. -Lionel Shriver

I relate really well to individuals who have a career and explore other adventures outside of skating. That, to me, is fascinating. -Patrick Chan

If you think about it, now that Spider-Man is in the Marvel universe, that means that Peter Parker was probably, like, eight years old when he saw Tony on TV telling the world he's Iron Man. And when you start thinking about it as a whole world like that, it gets really fascinating. -Jon Watts

I know from my experience in theater that the crowd is different every night; the reactions, the tension. But it's true for film as well, going from country to country and culture to culture. The difference between California and New York responses, for example. It's really fascinating. -Christoph Waltz

One of the most fascinating projects I worked on right after 'Officer' was 'Sadat,' a role for which Anwar Sadat's widow, Jehan, personally chose me. Although this TV miniseries won me nominations for the Golden Globe and an Emmy, strangely, it was boycotted in the Middle East. -Louis Gossett, Jr.

I don't want to be mushy about it, but having four kids is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to me, and each kid is, to me, more fascinating than any five movies. -Warren Beatty

I think the most fascinating thing in terms of relationships is imagining all the different variations that they could be. -Blake Crouch

'Three Tall Women' is kind of fascinating. I had never seen it itself, and I imagine the audience will find it very intriguing to watch the reveal of who these people are and how they interact in the second act. -Laurie Metcalf

What I thought was fascinating about comparative religion was that these were the stories that humans have told themselves about where they come from, who they are and where they're going, and what it means to be alive on the planet. -Trevor Paglen

Endnotes, often confused with footnotes that live at the bottom of a page, is that lump of text at the end of the book, sometimes even relegated to a tiny font size. They're often forgotten but, in nonfiction, particularly history books, can offer a fascinating footprint into the author's research, a joyful, geeky abyss. -Mary Pilon

The rise of women and feminism is well documented. What is equally fascinating – and less talked about – is the impact this has had on men. -Andy Dunn

Steve hadn't been to acting school. He had no preconceived notions. His background was exactly what you see on television; he's done that all his life. We thought we'd do one show. What happened was, it did really well, so we did a part two. And from then on, we found that Steve's natural behavior in the wild happens to be fascinating! -Terri Irwin

Because I am fascinated by people and what makes them behave the way they do. I think it is one of the most fascinating things in the world. -Penny Junor

It's the murkiness of humanity that I find endlessly fascinating. -John Hillcoat

I love dialects and accents; they're something that really resonate with me and that I find fascinating. -Keegan-Michael Key

Like most people, I find my own experiences – and my emotional responses to those experiences – fascinating and mysterious, even those that are a bit shaming and a little repellent. -Scott Spencer

It's fascinating working with young children. You have to improvise around them, and they're moving around and doing stuff, and you have to be real with them. -Zazie Beetz

I get a little stressed even sometimes knowing all the things I want to read, I won't have enough time in this lifetime. The more you read, the more you realize there are fascinating books to be read and so little time to do so. -Caroline Dhavernas

James Cameron has always been one of my favorite filmmakers. The first 'Terminator' is such a phenomenal film. It's not just that, though – he's also a very interesting person, James Cameron. It's fascinating to talk to him about science and engineering. -Giovanni Ribisi

I always wanted to go to Cuba growing up. It was this fascinating, forbidden country that seemed to have a lot of politics and folklore and history behind it. -Giovanni Ribisi

'Constitutional' is an unashamedly educational podcast from the 'Washington Post.' Sub-titled 'a podcast about the story of America,' it's presented by Lillian Cunningham, who engages scholars to explain the fascinating story of how a nation is designed from scratch. -David Hepworth

The '30 for 30' strand started life as a series of behind-the-scenes docs for the sports channel ESPN. It has now spawned an equally fascinating series of podcasts. Like the films, these podcasts don't rely on access, the usual currency of sports journalism, and are strangely excited by stories that are complicated and require telling at length. -David Hepworth

The human condition is endlessly fascinating to me, and the existential horrors of life are what drive our imaginations and theater in general. -Stephen Karam

I liked business. I found it fascinating. -Aneel Bhusri

I think people are drawn to 'The Pioneer Woman,' not because I am some fascinating person but because I present things that a lot of people can relate to. -Ree Drummond

If you find something obscure fascinating, learn as much about it as you can, because there's a good chance it won't be obscure for long. -Hilary Mason

What, for me, was exciting about America was just this extraordinary, complex, difficult, fascinating country, and Britain can feel very small. London, in particular, feels small because everything happens there, so you have publishing, politics, you have finance; everything in Britain happens in London. -Joanna Coles

I think that Mary Baker Eddy was a fascinating character in American religious history. -Caroline Fraser

I was always a computer kid, and I grew up with the Internet and always found it fascinating. -Robin Sloan

I feel really lucky that I somehow have blagged my way into loads of different experiences. I find making a film fascinating, I find making a play amazing, and working with my band and scoring things… it's all really cool. I'm just a glutton for experience, really. -Johnny Flynn

I'm drawn to female stories, of which there aren't that many, and particularly to stories now about older women. The things they have to confront and override is really fascinating. That's a whole untold part of our world. -Marianne Elliott

Self-tracking using a wearable device can be fascinating. -Kate Crawford

I know for myself, every now and again on HBO, they'll show some of the young comedian specials from the '80s and early '90s, and it's just fascinating to watch those comedians – some of whom are people that are world-famous, like Chris Rock or Judd Apatow – to see the jokes that people had, but also, the way everything looked. -Wyatt Cenac

Luca Changretta's not someone you want to be at odds with. It's a fantastic opportunity for me, and he's a fascinating character. -Adrien Brody

I live in Australia, and I am Australian, and because I grew up in an era where we didn't have a film industry, and now we do, it's just really exciting for me to be able to say that I work in my own culture in a medium that I find fascinating. -Geoffrey Rush

Right now, my focus is really acting and directing. But I see the creativity and the work that goes into building a network, and it's fascinating to me. If those doors open for me… I think just learning as much as I can at this point is really what it's about. -Shiri Appleby

I would like to see more of the making of just regular television shows. Like the casting process. I think it's so fascinating to watch the actors come in and see how they discuss everybody afterwards. It's a crazy world that has no rhyme or reason. -Shiri Appleby

Sam Peckinpah's movies probably say more about him than anybody's body of work says about that person. There are running themes in his films that I find eminently fascinating, disturbing, exhausting, and exhilarating. -Rod Lurie

I grew up, I had three uncles and… I loved Uncle Donald because he gave me dating advice, and I was, like, 5. But the other thing that I found fascinating about my Uncle Donald is he dressed up like a woman. And so I grew up around all of these men who dressed like women, so when I hear that, I don't hear a cause. I hear my family. -Salim Akil

Fullscreen is doing some really interesting work. They are taking these YouTube stars and people who have made entire careers out of social media and bringing them into an even bigger limelight on a new entrepreneur platform – and that's fascinating! That's genius to me. -Madeline Brewer

Lagos is a fascinatingly infuriating place that its residents love – and love to hate. Licence plates on cars here proudly display the state motto, 'Centre of Excellence,' in what often seems a sarcastic swipe at the place we live in. -Uzodinma Iweala

You can go to places in Africa and Asia and find Marley graffiti. In the slums of Nairobi, you see his lyrics painted on walls, and you realise he has this almost religious significance to the underclass of the world. He's a guy born in a hut with no bed, and now he's probably the most listened-to artist in the world. It's fascinating. -Kevin Macdonald

With fiction, I've grown to really love the challenge of lying, the challenge of telling a good tale that isn't truthful, and working with performers is endlessly fascinating. You know, learning what a good performance is, how to get a good performance, how much or how little you need to create emotion or to create character. -Kevin Macdonald

Brock Lesnar is a fascinating human being. -Paul Heyman

When I was in Cambridge reading mathematics, I went to Amsterdam for the International Mathematics Congress. There I saw M.C. Escher's fascinating work. That inspired me to try my hand at drawing such impossibilities. -Roger Penrose

Almost the first thing Obama did in the White House was to return the bust of Winston Churchill to the British embassy. That suggests a major re-ordering of things. It'll be fascinating to see what happens from now on. It was a genuine break with the recent past – perhaps to re-connect with the past past. -Amanda Foreman

'Daughters of Britannia' is a fascinating book, not least because it shines a light on a very dark corner of Foreign Office dealings. Diplomatic spouses are the Aunt Sallys of the foreign service: responsible for nearly everything, recognised for almost nothing. -Amanda Foreman

I was a history major at Princeton University; I took exams in war and diplomacy, and I find those things very fascinating. -Dean Cain

Youth is such a fascinating and volatile concoction of vulnerability, dependence, restlessness, relentlessness. You're still learning the terms of the world and of the self, in a very immediate way. -Laura van den Berg

There is a great overlap of tragedy that played out through the generations of the Lincolns. That, coupled with the idea that many people consider Lincoln our greatest president ever and the fact that he was also a man assassinated at the age of 56 and had a widow with mental problems is what makes it all so fascinating. -Michael Beschloss

I have always wanted to tell Miranda's backstory. To me, it's so fascinating that as a YouTuber, everyone knows what we show them. No one knows what goes on when the cameras are off. I always thought, what would Miranda do in her time off? -Colleen Ballinger

I've traveled a fair amount around the country and visited many states. It's amazing that Oregon is so different from Idaho; even though Portland isn't that far from Boise, it's a completely different city. Colorado is very different from Oregon. From a European perspective, I've always found that fascinating about America. -Andrew Haigh

Each couple's version of intimacy is so fascinating to me. A friend will tell me about her marriage, and I'll think, 'Yikes, they have horrible communication! They're going to get divorced!' And then I'll hear about them at another time and think, 'Wow, they love each other so much!' -Miranda July

I think that space exploration as a broad activity is the most important things that humans can do. I've always found it fascinating, interesting, compelling, and I have a drive to go out into space. -John M. Grunsfeld

In Grade 2, when we had to do a presentation in front of the class, I'd always do things about Ireland or Italy. I could draw maps; I could name all the capitals: I was completely drawn to other lands. I discovered with time that it's a thirst for other people, for otherness, for something fascinating and mysterious. -Robert Lepage

Dream sleep provides a fascinating neurochemical soothing balm. It is during dream sleep and only during dream sleep when our brain shuts off a stress-related neurochemical called noradrenalin. -Matthew Walker

I'm just interested in science, and I try to keep track of what's going on and get my head around it – inflation, the multiverse, whatever. It's very hard for me because I don't have a scientific background, and I wasn't any good at science at school, but all of that stuff I just find incredibly attractive and fascinating. -Alex Garland

If there was one key to happiness in love and life and possibly even success, it would be to go into each conversation you have with this commandment to yourself front and foremost in your mind, 'Just Listen' and be more interested than interesting, more fascinated than fascinating, and more adoring than adorable. -Mark Goulston

I speak four languages, and I've seen some of the most spectacular locations in the world and met hundreds of fascinating people. -Mark Manson

I feel like the most fascinating parts of a trans life take place after the decision to transition. They take place when you're in this new body, in this new life, and you start realizing things. -Hari Nef

No one knows the complete function of sleep. Is it to reset the brain or give it more of a rest period? Is it for cleaning the brain of all the garbage protein? For me, talking about these things as a non-biologist is fascinating. -Paul Allen

I find the function of the brain incredibly fascinating, and it's like trying to crack the toughest, most complicated problem there is. -Paul Allen

'Ready Player One' has it all – nostalgia, trivia, adventure, romance, heart, and, dare I say it, some very fascinating social commentary. The novel follows Wade Watts through the virtual reality world, the OASIS, and on a quest to uncover and unlock the secrets buried deep inside. -Rebecca Serle

The thing that was fascinating and frustrating about Pac was that he clearly knew better than to go down the gangster road that he went down. Pac knew – and he was right – that thug energy could be redirected into fearless positivity. -Cheo Hodari Coker

I would have loved to have been an aesthetician. I love, like, anything to do with – I know this sounds kind of gross – but any kind of zit popping is so fascinating to me. -Katie Lee

This might disappoint you somewhat, but I have to say my interest in Tolkien has faded dramatically over the years. His language skills are amazing, his story good and fascinating, but… he has a very Judeo-Christian perspective, and his use of mythical creatures is very… ignorant. -Varg Vikernes

I truly believe that the story behind 'The Room' is more fascinating and bizarre than 'The Room.' -Greg Sestero

I watched all these movies like 'King Kong' and 'Godzilla' when I was growing up, and the fact that dinosaurs actually lived on this earth, the fact that they are not fake, made them very fascinating. -Brian Tee

That's the thing that continues to blow me away and just never ceases to amaze me. Younger people continue to seek out this show and find it, and we get approached by 11-year-olds who say, 'Oh, my God, 'Psych' is my favorite show.' It's like, 'You weren't born when we started making that!' It's fascinating – and also awesome and humbling. -James Roday

That's one of the best things about my job. I've had the opportunity to really talk to and meet some really fascinating, weird people. -Stormy Daniels

It's really fascinating stuff, the science of sleep. We don't think of it in terms of that, but it really is. -Christina Applegate

Beauty really has such a wide field of interpretation. I guess that's why it's forever fascinating. -Stella Maxwell

I've always been interested in film, so to get involved in any way in the genesis of making a film or music for a film is fascinating to me. -Mike Patton

How can I stop acting? I don't think there is a full stop. Maybe the only time I will stop will be when acting stops fascinating me. I will have to find something that fascinates me more. -Tabu

Kids are great. They are endlessly fascinating and bizarre. But I also think that if I had left them on their own for long enough, one of them would have been eaten. -Greg Davies

Me, I'm a lesbian: I find women fascinating. -James May

Trump is kind of fascinating. I wish he was only seen in black-and-white 'cause he's like a character from the 1890s. -Ad-Rock

What's been fascinating about shooting my series 'American Woman' is the ubiquity of a woman's experience – and no matter who you are: a rockstar, film director, mom – we all are celebrating this movement of female empowerment, but we also realize we have a long way to go. -Brooke Baldwin

It is fascinating. No matter where I go, people recognize me. -Cenk Uygur

Coming from the Malayalam sets, when I went to Telugu, people told me that I wasn't acting and that it felt dead. It was very subtle in Malayalam, while it is slightly dramatic in Telugu. It is quite fascinating to understand what each industry expects of you and work according to that. -Raashi Khanna

The weird thing is, if I'd made 'The Incredibles,' shot-for-shot – exactly the same script, same timing, same shots – in live action, it would be perceived very differently, and somehow more adult than me doing it in animation. I find that fascinating and frustrating. -Brad Bird

Nagasaki is not just an international city with a long and fascinating history. It is a global inspiration for all those who seek to create a safer and more secure world. -Antonio Guterres

'Pi' was one of my favorite films growing up because I thought it employed paranoia and voice-over, and also because it used this unreliable narrator in a very fascinating way. -Sam Esmail

Forecasting is a maddening occupation. It is always fascinating and exciting and rewarding. yet it is also regularly exasperating and infuriating, occasionally even deranging. -Edgar Fiedler

In 'Jonaki,' it isn't about the individual actor. The actor is as important as the wall, or the water flowing down the wall, or a shadow. That kind of acting is also fascinating to me, not to be invisible necessarily, but to be in perfect synchronicity with the environment. -Jim Sarbh

United are a big deal, and if it ended up going that way, I would gladly join the Premier League. It is a fascinating and beautiful competition. -Fabio Quagliarella

I have mixed feelings about Jerusalem. It is fascinating, it is beautiful, it is tragic, and it is extremely attractive to all kinds of fanatics or redeemers, world reformers, self-appointed prophets or messiahs. I find this fascinating, but I don't think I would like to live in the middle of this. I need my distance. -Amos Oz

Yes, I love going to fittings and talking about the history of a costume. For 'Versailles,' a play set in 1919, the costume designer told me that pocket squares had just been introduced. The tango was becoming fashionable in London, and dancers used them to mop their brows. I love to learn fascinating stuff like that. -Gwilym Lee

Medical ethics is a fascinating discipline, as it deals with issues replete with complex philosophical, moral, and ethical considerations that are rarely black or white. -Gad Saad

I find it fascinating that you can look at the same problem from different perspectives and approach it using different methods. -Maryam Mirzakhani

I like absurdist aesthetics. There's something about dream logic that's really fascinating, how it interweaves with narrative. -Hiro Murai

I find it fascinating how hip hop as a culture mirrors every mythology from the beginning of mythology. The concept of the single mother and child – the Madonna concept. Hip-hoppers were raised in that. -KRS-One

It's always fascinating to me and blows my mind whenever I'm in a video game because I am such a big video game fan at heart. -Johnny Gargano

I think Africa is the most interesting continent on the planet. You look at a country like Egypt, and you look at a country like Ghana. It's just completely different, and the people look completely different. It's just a fascinating continent with the most culture. -Malcolm Brogdon

I like people, and I like to be around people. They are fascinating. I like to behave like a common man. I am a common man. -Vivek Oberoi

Roles don't fascinate me. It is the narrative, the screenplay that is fascinating. -Fahadh Faasil

I find the macabre fascinating; it's all over history. -John 5

I want to see craggy old faces on the telly. I find them infinitely more fascinating than pretty young ones. -Rachael Stirling

My job is to take out the negativity from a positive guy and take out the positivity from a negative guy. I don't play positive or negative roles. This is what I find fascinating about acting. -Manoj Bajpayee

I've discovered that being behind the camera is more fascinating. If I had to choose a profession today, it would have been something behind the camera. -Sonali Bendre

Living in England is fascinating: I discover a new world every day. -Roberto Mancini

Of all the places I've visited in my life, Egypt has been the most fascinating. I've explored almost the whole country: Cairo and the Pyramids, Alexandria, the temples of Luxor and Karnak, the Valleys of the Kings and the Queens and the Nobles. -Michael Portillo
