For movies to get greenlit solely based on the success of other movies that have a lot of women in them? It's so ridiculous to me. -Kristen Wiig

Urban America has been redlined. Government has not offered tax incentives for investment, as it has in a dozen foreign markets. Banks have redlined it. Industries have moved out, they've redlined it. Clearly, to break up the redlining process, there must be incentives to green-line with hedges against risk. -Jesse Jackson

In response to the recession, the Obama administration chose to emphasize costly, short-term fixes – ineffective stimulus programs, myriad housing programs that went nowhere, and a rush to invest in 'green' companies. As a consequence, uncertainty over policy – particularly over tax and regulatory policy – slowed the recovery. -Glenn Hubbard

I long for the countryside. That's where I get my calm and tranquillity – from being able to come and find a spot of green. -Emilia Clarke

There doesn't seem to be any other way of creating the next green revolution without GMOs. -E. O. Wilson

The future is green energy, sustainability, renewable energy. -Arnold Schwarzenegger

At President Obama's direction, the U.S Department of Agriculture is working hard to unleash the power of America's innovators and entrepreneurs to build a green energy economy. -Tom Vilsack

We need a greening of globalisation. -Sigmar Gabriel

Being told about the effects of climate change is an appeal to our reason and to our desire to bring about change. But to see that Africans are the hardest hit by climate change, even though they generate almost no greenhouse gas, is a glaring injustice, which also triggers anger and outrage over those who seek to ignore it. -Sigmar Gabriel

I love the competitive part of stocks. A lot of fear and greed, that's all it is. All I see is green and red. -Josh Brolin

It seems very safe to me to be surrounded by green growing things and water. -Barbara Kingsolver

'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' is the best movie for a guy like me. A cerebral adventure. A moving story. A bunch of little green men. -Tom DeLonge

My coming to faith did not start with a leap but rather a series of staggers from what seemed like one safe place to another. Like lily pads, round and green, these places summoned and then held me up while I grew. Each prepared me for the next leaf on which I would land, and in this way I moved across the swamp of doubt and fear. -Anne Lamott

I believe we should reframe our response to climate change as an imperative for growth rather than merely being a way of being green or meeting environmental commitments. -William Hague

I had never been to a fashion show before going to the Burberry show last month. It was an extraordinary spectacle. I was incredibly green and had no idea what an undertaking it is. I also have a new respect for models because they are so close to the front row and must be so self-conscious. -Eddie Redmayne

The word 'indie' is meaningless now. It's so over-used that people think it simply means green hair. -Morrissey

You know the green grifters have no argument when they start raising the 'no blood for oil' cry on the blogs. Excuse me, if Obama's make-sure-your-tires-are-properly-inflated administration would simply allow more energy production here in the U.S., that wouldn't be a problem very long, would it? -Howie Carr

Peter Wagner, my son, just won the Bel-Air Junior Club Championship. Parred the last three holes. One-putts, up and down. Us Wagners don't hit greens. We chip and putt. -Jack Wagner

Well, I think that Augusta is not the same golf course that I grew up on. Bobby Jones' philosophy was giving you space off the tee; if you put it in the right side of the fairway, you ended up getting the right angle to the green. -Jack Nicklaus

My style is definitely not ladylike – frills and bows kinda scare me – but I like the military look because I love that olive green khaki color. -Cameron Russell

The greenest home is the one you don't build. If you really want to save the Earth, move in with another family and share a house that's already built. Better yet, live in the forest and eat whatever the squirrels don't want. -Scott Adams

I'm fed up with the idiots… the ever-widening gap between people who know how to make movies and the people who green-light the movies. -Sean Connery

I have this wonderful personal chef who sources and stocks all my organic produce and I basically live on five smoothies a day. I'm totally vegan. I blend this green concoction with kale, cucumber, broccoli, string beans, avocado. My protein comes from protein powder. There is absolutely no milk, butter, cheese. -Larry Hagman

I have a very strict regimen of showing up at my desk at a certain hour with my cup of green tea. It is very quiet. I don't like having a lot of atmosphere around. -Melissa Rosenberg

Factory farming is one of the biggest contributors to the most serious environmental problems. The meat industry causes more greenhouse gas emissions than all the cars, trucks, planes and ships in the world. -Joan Jett

I'm a classic emerald green Sixties Jaguar that nobody can own, but my husband is allowed to drive. -Tori Amos

I'm trying to cut down a little on eating, on sodium, keep my blood pressure down, which is tough. Because I love food! I do, but it's unfair how everything that's bad for you tastes so good, and all the good stuff, veggies and green things, doesn't match up. -Ice Cube

I honestly don't know, but if America continues to refuse to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, I see a bleak future not only for American society, but for the world as a whole. This is a global problem that is not going away, and the United States is an obstacle to solving it. -Peter Singer

If I do a good job, people won't care if I am green or have three heads. -Harvey Milk

I'm a green-tea guy. -Billy Corgan

Musicians are so well covered in the press, it would be great to see more outspoken practitioners of green life. -Jason Mraz

Golf has an ambivalent relationship with the environment. On one hand, it's a great preserver of open spaces. Golf doesn't pave the world – it helps to green the world. But the downside is, it uses a lot of fertilizer, pesticides and water. -Thomas Friedman

The country that owns green, that dominates that industry, is going to have the most energy security, national security, economic security, competitive companies, healthy population and, most of all, global respect. -Thomas Friedman

You'll know the green revolution has been won when the word 'green' disappears. -Thomas Friedman

Environmentalism is a form of pagan fundamentalism. These green wackos are fanatics like al-Quaida. Just like them. -G. Gordon Liddy

I've always been multi-cultural myself. I'm not black and I'm not white and I'm not pink and I'm not green. Eartha Kitt has no color, and that is how barriers are broken. -Eartha Kitt

Some argue that now isn't the time to push the green agenda – that all efforts should be on preventing a serious recession. That is a false choice. It fails to recognise that climate change and our carbon reliance is part of problem – high fuel prices and food shortages due to poor crop yields compound today's financial difficulties. -Lucy Powell

How many colours are there in a field of grass to the crawling baby unaware of 'green'? How many rainbows can light create for the untutored eye? -Stan Brakhage

The trouble with New York today is that it's lost its balance. I love the new, greener New York, but it takes all kinds of worlds to make a World. -Brian Cox

Climate change is a global problem. The planet is warming because of the growing level of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. If this trend continues, truly catastrophic consequences are likely to ensue from rising sea levels, to reduced water availability, to more heat waves and fires. -Malcolm Turnbull

I do not believe we can effectively move Australia to a lower emission economy, which is what we need to do if we're going to make a contribution to a global reduction in greenhouse gases, without putting a price on carbon. -Malcolm Turnbull

If Margaret Thatcher took climate change seriously and believed that we should take action to reduce global greenhouse emissions, then taking action and supporting and accepting the science can hardly be the mark of incipient Bolshevism. -Malcolm Turnbull

During summer or charity games I'll wear my bright orange or green or turquoise ones and guys are always like, 'Why are your shoes so bright?' -James Harden

I don't eat green things, no vegetables. -Preet Bharara

I blend my green drink every morning. I also fix my son a full-on American breakfast with bacon and toast. -Liz Phair

I believe in breakfast. It's the one meal that my kids usually eat without a fuss, so that's huge. As for myself, I can't function without it, and I see it as a great way to get some healthy greens in, some coffee, and on a good day, maybe even some news of the world via the newspaper. -Samantha Bee

We need to invest dramatically in green energy, making solar panels so cheap that everybody wants them. Nobody wanted to buy a computer in 1950, but once they got cheap, everyone bought them. -Bjorn Lomborg

I spent hours as a kid on the putting green of the local golf course imagining I was sinking a putt to win the Masters. -Mike Weir

Now undoubtedly, we face some very British challenges when it comes to infrastructure. We rightly cherish our back yards and green spaces, and we'll defend them passionately when projects are announced. We live in a democracy, and we like to debate these things, often for many years. -Evan Davis

All the time that I'm acting with an animated character, I'm looking at a tennis ball or sticky tape or an eyeline or a man in a green suit. There's no real environment, just this electric green that's blaring into your brain. -Mia Wasikowska

Regarding green screen, green screen is really like doing some stage work. You have to make believe that there is a window, make believe that something is there that is really not there and convince the audience. It's part of acting. -Benicio Del Toro

Motown was about music for all people – white and black, blue and green, cops and the robbers. I was reluctant to have our music alienate anyone. -Berry Gordy

I'm famous for splurging at fast-food places. I'm currently obsessed with Taco Bell's bean and cheese burritos with extra green sauce and extra cheese. Gluttony! -Fergie

I think if you're president, color goes away completely: you're president and it doesn't matter if you're white, green or purple. -Kathryn Stockett

My mom's collard greens. No one else in the world can make them like hers. I'm not just saying that because she's my mom. She's got some Mississippi secret. I could seriously eat them every day. -Santigold

I try to leave a light footprint. I'm involved with Global Green, which aims to educate people about sustainable building and the greening of schools. I try to be aware about the consumption of unnecessary things in a consumptive culture. -Walton Goggins

I cannot go to Montreal without going to Beauty's, my favorite place for breakfast, where I have the Mish-Mash omelet with hot dogs, salami, eggs, green peppers, and onions, and the best banana bread in the world. It's legendary! -Gail Simmons

Red, electric blue – the only color I don't wear is green, which I still don't wear. I wear certain color greens, but I have such yellow skin so I always like to wear bold colors. -Jackee Harry

Don't sit and wish for some ideal; the grass is not always greener with the big house and cars and artwork. -Jonathan Coleman

I have six brothers and sisters. We all look totally different: blonde hair, curly hair, green eyes, dark eyes, dark skin, light skin. It's just how it is. -Rashida Jones

To get rid of swelling… I put green tea bags on my eyelids. Or I grab cold spoons that I leave in the freezer and put them on my eyes. -Shay Mitchell

A lot of sequins for New Year's! Red, green, white – I fail at all of that because I'm always in black. But for Christmas, I do love wearing cute dresses with tights and a pair of boots. -Ashley Benson

I go for crunchy things – I like green beans, broccoli, asparagus, celery and carrots. I'm not a fruit eater, though. -Rico Rodriguez

Children go with whatever makes them feel good – like if that's the color green or orange, they do that with their clothes. As I've grown older, everything reversed. My music, my personality – onstage those things became my colors. -Janelle Monae

I never liked apples. In fact, when I was a little girl, my mom wanted to give me apples in my lunch box and I would ask for green peppers. So bizarre… It's funny – I don't have an apple a day, but I can say that I have a few a week. -Lana Parrilla

In London I had pear trees in my back garden, so I'd make my own pear and green tomato chutney. -Stephen Moyer

Probably the person who said the only color in Los Angeles is green was right. -Anna Deavere Smith

Making African American films are hard in Hollywood. We need to rely on a support network and bring more cohesion to different filmmakers, actors, producers etc. It's a very difficult business. There aren't a lot of Africans Americans or people of color in high positions in Hollywood that we can green-light films. -Paula Patton

With iPhones, nobody has an excuse for writer's block. If you're at Whole Foods getting your green tea extract and you have a melody, you just drop it into your voice memo and save it for later. -Ryan Tedder

My favorite meal is I'll make like a three-bean soup and I freeze half of it. But I'm also a big fan of meat alternatives, so I can still have my chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans, but I just have the chicken from a plant-based thing. -Kathy Freston

It's easy to say why I love coming to Chicago for my signings, because I still remember the very first time I came to Chicago, right before 'Shiver' came out. I remember I was so struck by the feel of the city, how wide open it felt, even with these massive buildings all around me. The parks and green spaces are incredible. -Maggie Stiefvater

When I get up in the morning and put on a pink or a green wig, I see myself as a piece of animation. It lets me be the person I want to be, a person who's not embarrassed to have fun. -Nicki Minaj

The future will either be green or not at all. -Bob Brown

The greenhouse effect of carbon-dioxide emissions does produce gentle warming if it is not counteracted by unpredictable natural phenomena, but it cannot be measured directly against the volume of such emissions. -Conrad Black

I hope that in future Congresses there will reemerge a recognition that climate change is a reality, that our policies to meet our energy needs must also deal responsibly with environmental issues, including the damage caused by greenhouse gas emissions. -Jeff Bingaman

I like blue a lot, and greens. Earthy blues and greens. -Lee DeWyze

Gas is almost a give-away in the U.S. at the moment. They've gone for fracking in a big way. This is what makes me very cross with the greens for trying to knock it… Let's be pragmatic and sensible and get Britain to switch everything to methane. We should be going mad on it. -James Lovelock

It just so happens that the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion. I don't think people have noticed that, but it's got all the sort of terms that religions use… The greens use guilt. That just shows how religious greens are. You can't win people round by saying they are guilty for putting (carbon dioxide) in the air. -James Lovelock

I have been 130 lbs. as well as 215 lbs. I have had blond, strawberry blond, green, pink and purple hair, and none of that has ever exempted me from having lewd comments flung at me in the street. -Beth Ditto

I'm not afraid to call a wine that tastes like Skittles or green peppers mixed with orange marmalade. I'll say, 'It tastes like chicken.' I mean, that's not what people think of when they think of wine, but that's what it tastes like to me and it hits home. -Gary Vaynerchuk

The fact that women are very young in obtaining their civil rights and African-Americans are young in obtaining their civil rights, I think it's about time that we extend that to all Americans, whether straight, gay, purple, green, black, brown. -Octavia Spencer

I don't want to brag, but I do more homework on the course than any other announcer. I chart the greens to get all the breaks. I walk down into the greenside bunkers. I walk into the fairway bunkers to see whether a player can reach the green from them. -Johnny Miller

But that was my very first time on a set and they said, you know, you have to stand on a mark. That little piece of tape that you stand on is called a mark. I kept correcting them and telling them that my name was Michael and not Mark. They said, 'No, no honey.' I was a little green. -Michael Weatherly

The EPA's greenhouse gas regulations, along with a host of other onerous regulations, are unnecessarily driving out conventional fuels as part of America's energy mix. The consequences are higher energy prices for families and a contraction of our nation's economic growth. -Gina McCarthy

What is frustrating people, me included, is that democratic action affects elections but what we get then from political leaders is greenwash. -James Hansen

Talking nice about sun and wind and green jobs is just greenwash. -James Hansen

I think any opportunity you have to be green, whether it's in business or in everyday life, you should take it. -Lauren Conrad

There is no substitute for a real location when you're trying to shoot the jungle. You can't just go anywhere. You've got to go where it's lush and green and there really is those mountain ranges, the trees and the ocean. -Rachelle Lefevre

When I do stand-up for a long time, I'll get burned out, then I'll get an acting gig. For me, the grass is always greener. I'd like to do a mixture of all of it. My goal is just to do small movies that I've written. That's what I'm trying to do now, just write smaller movies. -Zach Galifianakis

Comedies are just never that expensive quite frankly. They really aren't. We aren't doing green screen shooting, so even Hangover II in Bangkok might seem like it's expensive, you're flying over and back, but they're just not that expensive to make when you do it the way we do it which is very focused and I've done it before. -Todd Phillips

Politicians all over the world cater to domestic vote banks. They will spend only on what their constituents want. So unless there is a grass root green movement in a nation the politicians will not be willing to spend money on curbing emissions. More awareness is needed amongst the people to effect the real change in how governments spend. -Wilbur Smith

I normally don't love green juices, but Body & Eden makes theirs tasty by blending ingredients like avocado and banana with the usual suspects like kale and spinach. Delicious as they are, they're low calorie, and the drink names are catchy: I Have Balance, I Have Energy, and my favorite, I Have Calm. -Gayle King

I buy five of the same shirts. I literally have six blue shirts. Now I have six green shirts. -Patrick Carney

I've built my wardrobe color palette around red, so I'm happy with it, but I do get pangs when I see beautiful brunettes. I've already been blue, green, black, and blonde. -Florence Welch

I personally think that a couple of pounds a week – maybe rising to almost £3 a week – is a reasonable price for Britain to achieve a degree of energy security to reduce its total dependence on fossil fuels and to honour its commitments to cut green house gases. -Tim Yeo

So I have the green smoothie every day for breakfast, and then sometimes even for lunch too, and then I have a normal dinner. -Dita Von Teese

Citizens must pressure the American Hospital Association, the American Public Health Association, the Centers for Disease Control and other relevant governmental agencies to make greening our hospitals and medical centers a top priority so that they themselves don't create even more illness. -Andrew Weil

The long and short of it is that I am now in a position in England to green light movies, and that's really excellent – not high-budget movies, but movies none the less. -Idris Elba

I did green screen for the first time! I wouldn't like to do a whole movie of green screen, though. You kind of forget the plot a little – like being in a Broadway play and doing it over and over and forgetting your line halfway through. -Idris Elba

A generation of Earth Days has conditioned millions of us to be green in our homes yet we must apply the same ethic to our politics if we want to save our planet and our democracy. -Christine Pelosi

Being green and clean is not just an aspiration but an action. -Christine Pelosi

Even leaving aside government policy, whole industries are already making expensive changes around the perceived need to 'go green.' Al Gore and countless other prophets of global catastrophe are making megamillions pushing these expensive solutions. Schoolchildren around the globe are being frightened by tales of impending calamity. -Bradley A. Smith

Because I'm a synesthete I see characters in colors and I perceive a W as green. -Robert Cailliau

She was green when green wasn't in. From sea to shining sea, Lady Bird Johnson has left her legacy in a more beautiful America. From millions of trees and wildflowers planted, to interstates free from billboards and replaced with green. -David Mixner

The greenhouse effect is something you can observe experimentally – and most people have observed the greenhouse effect themselves, in greenhouses. Yes? -Nicholas Stern

The basic scientific conclusions on climate change are very robust and for good reason. The greenhouse effect is simple science: greenhouse gases trap heat, and humans are emitting ever more greenhouse gases. -Nicholas Stern

I think that once people understand the great risks that climate change poses, they will naturally want to choose products and services that cause little or no emissions of greenhouse gases, which means 'low-carbon consumption.' This will apply across the board, including electricity, heating, transport and food. -Nicholas Stern

We run enormous risks and we know what kind of reductions of greenhouse gases are necessary to drastically reduce risks. Reducing emissions by half by 2050 is roughly in the right ballpark. It would bring us below 550 ppm. -Nicholas Stern

The fact is that seven per cent of the global population emits 50 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions, and the proportions are the same for the use of energy and raw materials, meat, wood, etc. Simply put, an infinitesimal minority consumes the most and imposes damage on the overwhelming majority, while asking it to change. -Yann Arthus-Bertrand

'Being green' is commendable, but I hope that people don't take too much pride and self-adoration because they shut off the water when they brushed their teeth. The truth of the matter is, conservation alone will do little to save our planet. -Naveen Jain

My parents traveled a lot, so my grandparents practically raised me. My grandmother and I really bonded in the kitchen. She's this amazing southern cook, and I would always help her – whether it was cracking eggs or stirring the green beans. It takes me back there. -Hillary Scott

I think there's a green side to John Kerry, if you like, that he's an environmental activist. His record on the environment is as best as you have on a pro-environment record of anybody in the U.S. Senate. -Douglas Brinkley

What I remember most about working on 'Sesame Street' is having fun in the green room with the other kids while waiting for my time to go on camera to work with the puppets. -Tyler James Williams

I'm a strong proponent of green tech for anyone who can afford it, having spent the last 40 years working toward achieving a smaller and smaller eco-impact for myself. -Ed Begley, Jr.

I started composting in 1970 by taking my food scraps out behind where I lived and burying them in a hole next to the railroad tracks – and green things started to grow there! -Ed Begley, Jr.

I take almost no notes when I write. I have one notebook – this old green leather notebook that my dad gave me a decade ago. -Nicole Krauss

There's nothing on this green earth that a liberal progressive fears more than a black American who wants a better life and a smaller government. -Allen West

Nothing surprises me on 'Happy Endings,' because the show – I think one of the awesome things about the show is that it's so open to doing anything. We could do a genre episode. We have the green light to do whatever we want. Mostly because no one's watching. -Adam Pally

There is a lot of healing going on. Really! More people are vegetarians, more are in the green movement, more of us are tearing down the old paradigms and embracing same-sex marriage, single motherhood, men raising babies. -Iyanla Vanzant

I've actually usually been wary of taking on science fiction as an actor because it's really tough to do. It's really difficult to execute. There's often lots of prosthetics, green screen and special effects, and it can get very technical. -Grant Bowler

With all this talk of Going Green, Buying Green, Living Green, and Green being the new whatever, I've come to realize that, although we had no green, my grandmother was actually the 'greenest' person I've ever known. -Joy Bryant

There's a great metaphor that one of my doctors uses: If a fish is swimming in a dirty tank and it gets sick, do you take it to the vet and amputate the fin? No, you clean the water. So, I cleaned up my system. By eating organic raw greens, nuts and healthy fats, I am flooding my body with enzymes, vitamins and oxygen. -Kris Carr

Whether you're reaching for one of your favorite cookbooks or just winging it, do your best to keep a well-stocked arsenal of healthy ingredients at your disposal. At the very least, you'll always be ready to whip up a green juice or smoothie. -Kris Carr

Ireland is a series of stories that have been told to us, starting with the Irish Celtic national revival. I never believed in 'Old Ireland.' It has been made all of kitsch by the diaspora, looking back and deciding what Ireland is. Yes, it is green. Yes, it is friendly. I can't think of anything else for definite. -Anne Enright

I usually have a few coins in my pocket when I'm playing, but the one I use to mark my ball on the green is a special silver coin that my wife designed for me. It has our wedding date inscribed on it. -Louis Oosthuizen

Despite all the hype about local or green food, the single biggest impediment to wider adoption is not research, programs, organizations, or networking. It is the demonizing and criminalizing of virtually all indigenous and heritage-based food practices. -Joel Salatin

As a kid in Fayetteville, N.C., I played golf all day, every day, a lot of it by myself. I spent hundreds of hours around the greens at Cape Fear Valley, the course my dad owned, hitting every shot I could think of – the one-hop-and-release, the chip that lands dead, the explosion from a bad lie. -Raymond Floyd

Doug Ford was one of the first of the old pros I saw during my first full year on tour, in 1963. To this day he's the best chipper I've ever seen. One thing Doug did was get the ball onto the green and rolling right away, keeping it as low as possible. He never hit his chips higher than was absolutely necessary. -Raymond Floyd

The more we heat up the planet, the more it costs all of us, not just in money, but in colossal famines, displacements, deaths, and species extinctions, as well as in the loss of some of the things that make this planet a blue-green jewel, including its specialized habitats from the melting Arctic to bleaching coral reefs. -Rebecca Solnit

At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow. -Gary Zukav

When we run out of them upstairs, I've been known to appropriate some from our greenroom, pocketing a few with one hand as I smile and greet our guests with the other. One time, Dave Zinczenko of 'Eat this, Not That!' fame, busted me in the act. The cookies apparently fall in the 'not that' category. I made a note of it. -Lester Holt

I was asked to do a reading of 'G.B.F.' and I loved the script. I thought it was one of the most amazing things I'd read, but it took a year to get a green light for production. -Sasha Pieterse

All through my life, I didn't really consider my eyes at all, and then I became an actress. It's great, I guess. They're just in my face, and one is green and one is blue. It's different, and I'm definitely a proponent of being different in any way you can in life, so I guess if you're born a bit different that's a good thing. -Alice Eve

'Make your plate look like a Christmas tree,' I tell people, 'mostly green with splashes of other bright colors.' -Victoria Moran

As I see it, a green salad is an open invitation to carrots, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and the sprouts that grow in jars on my kitchen counter. -Victoria Moran

I went to art school in Chicago for a year at Columbia College. I had this whole master plan of getting into sustainable development and green architecture and construction, so I wanted to go to business school and then get my masters in construction and development. -Nico Tortorella

I don't mind doing the green-screen stuff at all, and in fact it's a lot like black-box theater, which I did plenty of in New York. -Gabriel Macht

People often ask me whether I prefer theater or film, and the answer is that I prefer the one I'm not doing: The grass is always greener. -Helen Mirren

I don't think I ate a green vegetable until I was 30. I didn't grow up with a mom who enforced that at all. -Keri Russell

The actual, original 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' I have vague memories of because I was pretty small, but I loved, loved, loved it. I have only those weird, visceral little-kid memories: I remember the extreme flat, two dimensional green that was their skin or the weird pizza with no sauce – it was just like yellow, drippy cheese. -Mae Whitman

In '87, I was about 9 years old, and so at that point I was wearing, like, fluorescent green T-shirts and acid-wash jeans and leg warmers, and my hair was in a ponytail with a scrunchie and I had the teased bangs that were up in a rainbow shape. It was crazy. -Malin Akerman

My eating is pretty consistent. I like Greek yogurt for breakfast. I eat two giant salads a day, a broiled meat or fish, and a dark green vegetable at every meal. -Veronica Webb

I love being a producer, and I think I essentially still operate as a producer even though I now have control of marketing and the ability to green-light shows – something every producer wants but that they don't get! -David Nevins

I just need green. I need to wake up and see grass and squirrels. I don't want to see skyscrapers. -Andre Leon Talley

Nuclear energy people perceive the greenhouse effect as a fresh wind blowing at their back. -Stewart Udall

I had been playing beach volleyball all day, painted my nails red, and threw on a green dress. I thought I looked great at the time, but looking back, I realize that my debut into Monaco society should have been better executed! -Charlene, Princess of Monaco

I am a believer in nutrient timing and supplementation, through 8Zone. I love eggs, apples, wild fish, leafy greens, brown rice, pasta, oatmeal, home grown Washington Potatoes, and cooking with coconut and olive oils. -Apolo Ohno

It's hard, the green screen; it's a different way of working. -Rodrigo Santoro

I like to address all parts of my game, but I'm really concentrating a lot of time with my coach, David Whelan, on my short game and on the greens. -Paula Creamer

I've always – I grew up on the old-style traditional type of golf course, tree lined and all small greens, big undulations. And Oakmont just fit my eye. -Paula Creamer

If you have forest, if you have green forest, the water table goes up. What happens with deforestation is the water level goes down and we all know how much importance drinking water has. -MS Dhoni

Wind and solar power are land-intensive, a green sin, but not energy-dense, and affordable only when heavily subsidized. And wind power must be supplemented with hydrocarbons for reliability. -Mark McKinnon

It's of very little importance to me that I was born gay. It doesn't make me a better athlete, it doesn't make me a stronger person, it doesn't really do anything to enhance my life. It's just something I was born with, the same as green eyes. -Johnny Weir

When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring. -Madeleine M. Kunin

My most memorable meal is every Thanksgiving. I love the food: the turkey and stuffing; the sweet potatoes and rice, which come from my mother's Southern heritage; the mashed potatoes, which come from my wife's Midwestern roots; the Campbell's green-bean casserole; and of course, pumpkin pie. -Douglas Conant

I rely on a lot of green drinks to get my vegetables. -Tim Tebow

Maybe we need to re-engage our smart, energetic youth around the world to be farmers and find fresh, green technologies that will feed the world more fresh greens. -Ellen Gustafson

I'm trying to be as green as I can. As an airline pilot, I have a carbon footprint that's a size 10, so it's pretty hard. -Bruce Dickinson

I definitely associate music with color. For example, my first record has a red cover but it is totally green and blue to me. -Kaki King

China is a main energy consumer and, therefore, is also a big greenhouse gas emitter. We must use energy resources rationally and must conserve. This needs us to adjust our economic structure, transform the mode of development, to make economic development more dependent on progress of science and technology and the quality of the work force. -Wen Jiabao

Unfortunately, 'climate' has become a dirty word – obviously in politics, but even to some degree in my world, in venture capital. People hesitate if they see something that's purported to be green. That's not a reason to invest for many people. -Evan Williams

If I hold up a red square for 30 seconds and take it away, you will see a perfect green square. It's how the eye works. So if you want to paint a really good red painting, you have to strategically place in some green, so the eye is brought back. -Robert Irwin

The thing about a plant is, let's say it will have 50 or 100 little points of bright red. If you look at the thing as it goes down, it becomes green in a way… It is way more spectacular than pointillist paintings where these things are played with, but never to the level of what happens in nature. -Robert Irwin

I'm sorry to say, but 85% of so-called 'green' firms make some of the ugliest buildings that were ever made. So for God's sake, I don't want to be categorized with them. -Steven Holl

When I was young, all the politicians looked like ancient Latin teachers or greengrocers. They were mumbly, stumbly men with their hair blowing in their eyes, walking into trees, opening the wrong door. They had no idea how to present themselves. -Dylan Moran

As an Irish person, there's a historical fascination with America: America is the default green and promised land for Irish people and Italians; that's what we grow up with. -Dylan Moran

I took three years of karate because of Bruce Lee, you know. I was a green belt. -Marjane Satrapi

I don't know if One Direction will stand the test of time. I have a niece who goes crazy for them. But the only way to judge art is to wait and see if it becomes evergreen. This takes a bit of time. Adele is a very good musician and I'd like to sing with her. But, again, time will tell if her music will become evergreen. -Andrea Bocelli

I am all for greening tall buildings, but I'm also very keen to note that greening a building doesn't cope with the problem of the tall building in the texture of the city. -Joseph Rykwert

Even if we were to stop putting out greenhouse gases right now, we'd still face decades of warming. -Jamais Cascio

Carbon dioxide isn't the only greenhouse gas out there. Other substances, such as water vapor and nitrous oxide, also trap heat to varying degrees. -Jamais Cascio

Neodymium is one of 17 'rare-earth metals,' and these elements have turned out to be critical to the rapidly-growing green technology industries. -Jamais Cascio

Many people still believe that 'green' solutions are too expensive, but they are actually much cheaper when all of the costs to public health, social services, and waste handling are factored into the same equation. -Majora Carter

Every quirky girl doesn't have to be the best-friend character. It's a very limiting and self-fulfilling prophecy. People only write things that will get green-lit, so they write to those stereotypes. -Felicia Day

I'm a big fan of the Adidas three-stripe old-school zip-up tracksuit tops. I've got several for everyday wear, including an olive-green one, a burgundy one and a cream one with leather arms. -Jonas Armstrong

I sense very little appetite for green efforts to persuade people to accept a frozen or declining standard of living for the sake of the environment. Recessions remind us that economic retreat or stagnation is painful, whatever the goal. -Matt Ridley

We're doing a partial green nursery and trying as hard as we can to do as much organic stuff for our nursery as we can. -Lisa Ling

'Pair of Kings' is so much fun, literally. It is a very physical show with loads of stunts and green screen work, and you never know what great adventure is ahead of you! It's also a nice change in terms of being of similar ages to Doc Shaw and Mitchel Musso. -Kelsey Chow

You could warm Mars up, over time, with greenhouse gases. -Elon Musk

So many artists today will talk about green this or organic that, but you know what? What we are eating, I think, is really doing a lot of bad to us. I'm not sure if I'm the guy to do it right now, because I have to clean up my house too, so to speak, but we've got to start addressing this. Too many people are getting sick today. -Tom DeLonge

People love my collard greens. They love my macaroni and cheese. They love the gumbo. They love my Jamaican jerk or my Jamaican curry chicken. They love the jerk, though. And they love my Mexican food. -Tamala Jones

No matter who you are, black, white, green, there's going to be things in your way, you know what I mean? -Nas

When I was nine, I was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat and was prescribed beta blockers, which had the side effect of turning my skin green. Looking like Shrek's little sister at school wasn't the easiest thing. -Jessie J

I recently have gotten into juicing as an in-between-meals snack. I think the more vegetable ingredients the better, especially if they are green. I find that a good juice can really curb my appetite when I need to wait for the next meal. -Noureen DeWulf

I haven't acquired a taste for green tea, and I don't intend to. I like my coffee black with a little sugar, and it keeps my metabolism up! I don't mind the occasional Gatorade while I'm gymming. -Arjun Rampal

Green issues have been used as a marketing tool. Sometimes these green claims are completely meaningless. -Frank Gehry

I never said I was opposed to the LEED program or to green building – I'm not. -Frank Gehry

On certain projects, on big public projects, people definitely are interested in making them greener, but on smaller projects with tight budgets it can be harder. -Frank Gehry

I'd rather support the issues I truly believe in than give my vote to parties that court votes at the time of the election. I like to think that my vote strengthens the green foundation stone. -Annie Lennox

I serve black tea, which I call Froggy tea. And I have green teas and all sorts of nice teas. I'm serving tea all the time. -Marianne Faithfull

I hope that any expansion of London will learn from the planning examples of some of its most desirable areas such as Chelsea, Notting Hill, Belgravia and Mayfair. All are characterised by high density and a generosity of green spaces. They are all pedestrian-friendly with shops, entertainment, restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance. -Norman Foster

Working on a green screen set, yeah, it's almost like reading from a novel, taking those black words and creating a world around you. -Caterina Scorsone

I ski every three years or so. I don't have the ingrained confidence that others do, but I'll happily toddle about a green or blue run. -Cherie Lunghi

On some level, acting is the art of pretend, and you have to have a highly cultivated sense of imagination. You have to be able to see things that aren't there, no matter what aspect of acting, whether it's green screen, whether it's on stage, whether it's anything else, whether you're working on the radio. -Stephen Lang

I actually had a movie green lit at Disney the same week 'Burlesque' was green lit – a movie for Disney called 'Mash-Up', about a high school marching band. -Steve Antin

In the future, it's going to move from being just a data transport to really becoming a media experience platform. The Internet will be more about media, more about collaboration, much more virtualized and much more green. -Padmasree Warrior

The spring of 1942 was given over to a very impassioned, strategic debate about where we should first attack in counterpunching against the Germans and Italians. The British argued very persuasively on the part of Winston Churchill, prime minister, that this was a very green American Army, green soldiers, green commanders. -Rick Atkinson

I'll see a celadon green room in an 18th century New Hampshire house and just fall in love. Colors stay in my head. -Barbra Streisand

The best comfort food will always be greens, cornbread, and fried chicken. -Maya Angelou

If you're white and you're wrong, then you're wrong; if you're black and you're wrong, you're wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now. -Bob Marley

My first 'Daily Show' piece was pretending I had this terrible immigrant journey, so I went to talk to an immigration lawyer who would help out people, and I ran into him in Penn Station about three months after I'd gotten the green card. I said, 'I got my green card yesterday.' And he hugged me because he understood that level of relief. -John Oliver

When you're 25 or 30, you know, you can't wear lime-green eye shadow anymore. -Taylor Swift

Relationships are like traffic lights. And I just have this theory that I can only exist in a relationship if it's a green light. -Taylor Swift

I am evergreen, and with every passing day, I am becoming younger. -Mithun Chakraborty

Internationally, I love going to Switzerland. I went there many times for shooting and loved the Alps, the tranquility, cleanliness, the greenery and the warmth of the people there. -Chiranjeevi

I did not like 'The Hurt Locker.' It's a lazy way to make a movie, frankly. I could put you on the edge of your seat quite easily, and have you feel the tension for 2 hours, if every other scene practically is, 'Should we cut the red wire or the green wire?' -Michael Moore

Growing up in England, people told you why you couldn't do things. Suddenly, I had a publisher banging on my door, and was given the creative green light to simply make. -Nick Bantock

I have a lot of land. I bought it because I had a very strong feeling. I was in my early twenties, and I had grown up in Los Angeles and had seen that city slide off into the sea from the city I knew as a little kid. It lost its identity – suddenly there was cement everywhere and the green was gone and the air was bad – and I wanted out. -Robert Redford

Now it really is, believe it or not, 90% of the films are green lit, not by the studio heads, but by the marketing department. -Sylvester Stallone

When I stopped eating meat, I noticed that it was easier for me to focus, and I was really proud of myself for being green also… I had a plethora of reasons for going vegetarian. -Christian Serratos

My dad is an engineer and works on green energy, so I'm very aware of what it takes to keep a modern home running and how we can simplify. -Rachel Boston

In Los Angeles, I drive a hybrid and live in a very simple home. Anything you do from carrying a canteen of water to starting a recycling program in your office makes a difference. Reusing what you already have has always been green – from clothes to boxes to glass jars from the supermarket. -Rachel Boston

I eat tons of green veggies to keep my PH balance in check. -Valerie Cruz

In 2007, my life changed forever. I signed on 'Tashan,' a full-on glamorous masala movie, with two of the hottest and fittest actors around: Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. And me, rising out of the sea like a Bond girl, wearing nothing but a green bikini. I had nightmares of how my love handles would be on display for the whole world to see. -Kareena Kapoor Khan

Even if we didn't have greenhouse gases, were going to have to move away from fossil fuels, as we're going to run out. They're finite, whereas solar and wind are infinite. -Ted Turner

I enjoy almost all of the game we kill. I only like to eat game that I have cleaned. I guess duck and dressing are still one of my favorites. We prefer fat green-winged teal or wood ducks for our dressing. -Phil Robertson

When I'm getting ready for a movie, let's just say my diet is 'The Antisocial Diet.' I don't go to restaurants. I don't eat what I really want to eat. I don't eat much. I eat small things frequently. Lots of protein and greens. And I don't eat with people, because there's a tendency to get social and then to overeat. -Jason Statham

My karate skills are very limited. I'm a green belt. -Molly Quinn

Hi, I'm Nadine Velazquez, and my green tip is: recycle. -Nadine Velazquez

I've had watermelon hair where I had pink with green tips. From the age of 13 to about 19 or 20, I never had my real hair color. -Natalia Tena

What is now called 'green architecture' is an opportunistic caricature of a much deeper consideration of the issues related to sustainability that architecture has been engaged with for many years. It was one of the first professions that was deeply concerned with these issues and that had an intellectual response to them. -Rem Koolhaas

'Speed' and 'Point Break' were a lot of running and jumping, and then 'The Matrix Trilogy' had a lot of fights and wire work and green screen elements. -Keanu Reeves

My refrigerator is full of kale and greens. I can't imagine something greasy, or eating meat. -Pamela Anderson

I said, 'I'm going to the United States to study with Stella Adler and do movies because nobody here has done it and my passion is films.' But I came here and I didn't speak English, I didn't have a green card, I didn't know I had to have an agent, I couldn't drive, I was dyslexic. -Salma Hayek

I don't have any particular thing I do ritualistically. I do the same thing every day. I get up. Drink a lot of water. Have a wheatgrass shot. Drink some green juice. Eat as healthy as I can. -Erykah Badu

I have a great time cooking and eating Thai green chicken curry. -Akshay Kumar

As people flock to urban centers where ground space is limited, cities with green walls and roofs and skyscraper farms offer improved health and well-being, renewable resources, reliable food supply, and relief to the environment. -Diane Ackerman

The garden of love is green without limit and yields many fruits other than sorrow or joy. Love is beyond either condition: without spring, without autumn, it is always fresh. -Rumi

You've always got to have the right blend of colour. You'd be silly to match a yellow t-shirt with a light green pair of trousers, you know? You can wear different colours at the same time, and as long as they blend with each other then it works. That's what I like. -Olly Murs

We were in Japan once where they had 30 kinds of green tea. I thought there was one. -Billy Corgan

I'm not pessimistic about Africa. The cities just seem big and hopeless. But there's still a great green heart where there's possibility. There's hope in the wilderness. -Paul Theroux

My mom makes something called green pie, which I thought was a delicacy that many people only had at Thanksgiving, but it turns out it was just Jell-O with whipped cream on it. And it's delicious. -Bobby Moynihan

I love green juices – the ones that include lots of actual greens and don't include too much apple. Because those are just meant to be yummy, and we all know things that are too yummy aren't the best for us, unfortunately. -Chrissy Teigen

I learned one thing from jumping motorcycles that was of great value on the golf course, the putting green especially: Whatever you do, don't come up short. -Evel Knievel

I went to my prom. I wore this olive green, floor-length backless dress. It was rad. -Lorde

I don't think much about my physical body going off into the long, green fairways of Heaven to play golf. -John Shelby Spong

For carbon-neutral cities, there are things worth talking about in how our consumption patterns can change – sharing goods, etc. – but those are a fraction of the impacts of transportation and building energy use. If we need to choose priority actions, the most important things are to densify, provide transit, and green the buildings. -Alex Steffen

Cities generate most of the global economy, and most of its energy use, resource demands and climate emissions. How we build cities over the next decades will largely determine whether we can deliver a bright green future. -Alex Steffen

Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy or nation is derived from the photosynthetic process – green plants growing on regenerating soil. -Allan Savory

There are so many possibilities of life out there that an alien doesn't have to have green, long tentacles. They can be very similar to us. -Matt Lanter

The clothes chosen for me as a child had a strong element of the Pre-Raphaelite, muted greens and ivories, dusty rose, what seems in retrospect an eccentric amount of black. -Joan Didion

The true – the true economy has got to come back into balance with the very biosphere that sustains us. And I think a lot of people just see the green economy as a different way of allowing the corporate agenda to continue to flourish. -David Suzuki

What I love about the term 'salad' is that it can appear in so many different forms and says a lot about the cook. It could be a simple as fresh green lettuces tossed with a basic vinaigrette, or it could be as hearty as a couscous salad with grilled shrimp. -Marcus Samuelsson

The main distinction for fresh chillies is whether they are red or green, the difference being one of ripeness. -Yotam Ottolenghi

Nearly all edible seaweeds – or 'sea vegetables,' as they ought technically to be called – belong to one of three broad groups: green, red and brown algae. -Yotam Ottolenghi

I love to create this green juice shake made from kale, spinach, cucumber and wheatgrass. The nutrients in the juice help me recover after a tough workout. The Kale Banana Smoothie at LYFE Kitchen is very similar to my recipe and is fantastic. -Troy Polamalu

'Green Garden' is about beauty and joy and lush green and dance and excitement and smiling from within. -Laura Mvula

I loved England's gentility and its civility. I'm from the Bronx, with a Bronx accent. I love the beauty of its language, the ways it's spoken. I love the green grass of England and the flowers. -Sid Bernstein

I read all of the books by Tolkien, including 'The Hobbit,' when I was in my twenties, and his deep love of nature and all things green resonates deeply with me. -Howard Shore

You don't have to paint your walls lime green just to try to have your home feel decorated. If you're a classic dresser or preppy dresser or a modern dresser, you wear a lot of black – whatever it is – your home should reflect that as well. -Nate Berkus

You don't have to live on a farm to have chickens; in some places, you just need a little bit of green space and a tidy chicken coop. To me, they're nearly ideal pets. They feed us more often than we feed them! We have 2 chickens, Goldie and Paprika, and they each produce 1 egg a day, sometimes more. -Amy Robach

The wrap party for the 'Lorna Doone' TV series was pretty special. We went to about four clubs, then four people's houses, and I got home at midday the next day. I'd been wearing ridiculous green shoes all night, and the dye had smudged all over my legs. -Amelia Warner

I've never drunk coffee. I'm convinced it has something to do with why my skin is good. I have either mint, green or black tea. -Saffron Aldridge

A long, hot bath is a real treat. But from a 'green' point of view, that's probably what it should be: an occasional treat. -Sheherazade Goldsmith

Vegetable box schemes, local greengrocers, farmers' markets and organic stores are a great place to source package-free foods. -Sheherazade Goldsmith

By August 2008, we had left Voikovskaya and moved into a wooden dacha in the artists' colony of Sokol in north-west Moscow. The house was a haven amid the madness of the city: lily of the valley grew near our front gate, Virginia creeper decked the green picket fence. -Luke Harding

There's a lot to do in space. I want to learn more about the greenhouse effect on Venus, about whether there was life on Mars, about the environment in which Earth and the Sun is immersed, the behavior of the Sun. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

Venus has a runaway greenhouse effect. I kind of want to know what happened there because we're twirling knobs here on Earth without knowing the consequences of it. Mars once had running water. It's bone dry today. Something bad happened there as well. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

When people switch to car-sharing from car ownership, they reduce their vehicle miles traveled by 44 percent, and thus their greenhouse gas emissions go down by, like, 40 percent. -Jessica Scorpio

The people who despise America are the editors of the 'New Statesman.' Their green-card applications must have been turned down. -P. J. O'Rourke

Sheep farming is heavily subsidized in Great Britain. Without the subsidies, the green grazing in the valley of the River Exe would be gone. The handsome agricultural landscape of which the British are so proud, carefully husbanded since Boudicca's day, would be replaced by natural growth. The most likely growth is real-estate developments. -P. J. O'Rourke

I have spent many hours on the beach collecting sea glass, and I almost always wonder, as I bend to pick up chunk of bottle green or a shard of meringue white, what the history of the glass was. Who used it? Was it a medicine bottle? A bit of a ship's lantern? Is that bubbled piece of glass with the charred bits inside it from a fire? -Anita Shreve

We always hear from newspapers that while people understand the environmental challenge, they are unwilling to stomach the solutions. The trouble is, we only ever hear about the solutions from the media, and for whatever reason, they are almost always caricatured beyond recognition. If there's no appetite for green, it's not surprising. -Zac Goldsmith

Politicians usually get the blame for dragging their feet on environmental issues. And fair enough. Most of them do just that. But the blame isn't theirs alone. For politicians afraid of losing votes, a bristling media waiting to transform good green ideas into monsters is a colossal disincentive. -Zac Goldsmith

We've all heard of the surveys revealing that teenagers think cows lay eggs, and others where children can identify more brand logos than trees, by a staggering margin. My view is that children will form a significant part of the green fightback. They instinctively understand the value of the environment. -Zac Goldsmith

'Green' cannot be allowed to become an excuse for stealth taxes. And nor should 'green taxes' be about punishment. Instead, they should represent a switch of emphasis. So if domestic flights are taxed, it should be on the absolute condition that the money is ploughed into improving the alternatives, such as trains. -Zac Goldsmith

I wanted to weave a green thread through the Conservative party; that's my job, and I signed up imagining that I would be in a very small minority within my party, possibly even on my own, battling away on these issues. -Zac Goldsmith

The rainforest has an intense beauty that at times seems almost suffocating. The jungle is one twig short of impenetrable, and the greenery seems to crowd in on you with a sensation that has been described as akin to snow blindness. -Mark Barrowcliffe

A living tree is a changing, sleeve shape, a wet, thin, bright green creature that survives in the thin layer between heartwood and bark. It stands waiting for light, which it catches in the close-woven sieves of its leaves. -Alice Oswald

If I see a roll of Bubble Tape, a bag of Haribo Gold-Bears or a pouch of green-apple Big League Chew, I'm eleven again. -Rosecrans Baldwin

There is an incredible renewable energy resource off both coasts of this country – wind and tidal energy that can power our economy, create good paying jobs and reduce greenhouse gas pollution. -Chellie Pingree

I wanted to be like Vivien Leigh in 'Gone With the Wind.' I wanted to have black hair, green eyes and break hearts. -Terry Farrell

The grass is always greener on the other side. We are busy applying fairness creams while people in the West go bare-bodied on the beach to get a tan. Indian girls have ruled the roost when it comes to beauty pageants. I flaunt my complexion, and I am proud to be noticed as an Indian wherever I go. -Shilpa Shetty

I'm a green tea addict, though the occasional glass of red wine is nice, too. -Shilpa Shetty

If I've gone to the market on Saturday, and I go another time on Tuesday, then I'm really prepared. I can cook a little piece of fish; I can wilt some greens with garlic; I can slice tomatoes and put a little olive oil on. It's effortless. -Alice Waters

Americans get it. They're ready for some opportunities to have greener communities, to have cleaner communities, and to have transportation options that perhaps they haven't had in the past. -Greg Abbott

My weekends are spent hidden in the woods, and then I have to come back and pretend to be this very upper-crust insurance investigator. But, I mean, duality's nice. You never get bored. You can't say the grass is always greener if you're in both backyards. -Hilarie Burton

I don't know if I'd say I feel green, but I'm getting to know myself as an actor now in a way that I never did as a kid. -Gaby Hoffmann

There are certain times of the day when you need a balance – that is, your protein and your carbs. I'm a Barry Sears man. I believe that anything green is a carb, and I need 2:1. Two of the carbs to one of the protein. -Bill Cosby

I suppose I'm a cultural Anglican, and I see evensong in a country church through much the same eyes as I see a village cricket match on the village green. I have a certain love for it. -Richard Dawkins

If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the 'right' thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It's like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip. -Robert Kiyosaki

I began playing Monopoly for real when I was 26 years old. Today, my wife and I have approximately 1,400 little green houses – each paying us monthly. You do not have to be a rocket scientist or have a Harvard degree to play Monopoly for real. -Robert Kiyosaki

Ignorance is pitiful! If you are ignorant and stupid, you are sick – white, black, green, I don't care. -Willie Wells

Some people hate lime-green; red has all this emotional baggage. Blue seems to be overall one of the more positive colors, and a little more serious than yellow. -David Carson

When I think about that first DeBarge album, I remember being so green… just pristine. Nothing mattered to me but writing songs. I remember staying locked up in a room with my piano and just singing and writing songs all day long. I remember being a perfectionist about it… wanting to change this and fix that. -El DeBarge

Those who deny human-caused climate change offer no compelling evidence to better explain the undeniable rise in atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases and global temperature. -Alan Lowenthal

I like my women very green; you know, eco-friendly. -John Boyega

I was determined my 4,000th winner would be in the green and gold colours of J. P. McManus and trained by Jonjo O'Neill, who have been my greatest supporters. -Tony McCoy

In my dreams and visions, I seemed to see a line, and on the other side of that line were green fields, and lovely flowers, and beautiful white ladies, who stretched out their arms to me over the line, but I couldn't reach them no-how. I always fell before I got to the line. -Harriet Tubman

I'm so old, I don't buy green bananas any more. -Lou Holtz

When I was a kid, to me, the Evergreen Players were the big time. -Trey Parker

Every time you think of a city, you have to think green, green, green. Every time you see concrete jungle, you must find open spaces. And when you find open spaces, make it so people can get to them. -Eduardo Paes

Rio is an energetic, vibrant place, full of beauty and nature. But we face the kinds of problems any developing metropolis does – with pollution, traffic congestion, poverty. Distribution of green areas, for example, is not uniform. Madureira, the heart of the suburb in Rio, is a concrete jungle. -Eduardo Paes

The most staggering linguistic turnabout for me is the one that equates green economy with 'sustained economic growth.' -Tim Jackson

From solar to electric cars, from geothermal to reconfiguring the grid, the scale of investment needed in green technologies in order to meet whatever agreements on emissions reductions are finally agreed will be immense. -Noreena Hertz

We seem wired to grieve with greenery. Allowing the dead to dissolve into the earth, to become part of the cycle of the seasons, has, for millennia, held the promise of cheating mortality. -Simon Schama

The roof of my house is covered in solar panels. When I'm home, I'm a pretty green fellow. -Bill McKibben

I would love nothing more than me and my family getting green cards, going to L.A. for a year, sitting down with the big Hollywood studios and coming up with the most advanced and awesome Internet distribution platform for movies. It would make Hollywood more money than cinemas, DVDs, and everything else combined. -Kim Dotcom

I write on a computer. On breaks, I'll make myself green tea. I don't want something too caffeinated. I guess I don't believe in chemical enhancement of my writing. Just slight, but nothing crazy. -Chang-Rae Lee

I want to try and wear as many Australian designers as I can because I'd like to support my Australian colleagues in the industry as well as find things that are eco-friendly. I love the green concept of wearing more sustainable garments at events. -Lucy Fry

Aficionados of Slow design and Slow fashion use ethical and green materials to make objects – furniture, clothes, jewellery – that lift the spirit and last a lifetime rather than one catwalk season. -Carl Honore

A hunk of beef raised on Scottish moorland has a very different ecological footprint from one created in an intensive feedlot using concentrated cereal feed, and a wild venison or rabbit casserole is arguably greener than a vegetable curry. -Tristram Stuart

Like many insects, flies are most sensitive to green light. This means that they would see their world as 'black and white,' in that they can't see the multiple colors required to reconstruct a color image of the world. They do, however, have specialized cells that enable them to see ultraviolet wavelengths. -Michael Dickinson

Shipping is the greenest method of transport. In terms of carbon emissions per ton per mile, it emits about a thousandth of aviation and about a tenth of trucking. But it's not benign, because there's so much of it. So shipping emissions are about three to four percent, almost the same as aviation's. -Rose George

Seafarers are used to being exploited. At sea, the captain moans at chandlers who supply ships with green bananas that will never ripen; at fruit that goes moldy obscenely fast; at sub-standard meat. -Rose George

Sending a container from Shanghai to Le Havre emits fewer greenhouse gases than the truck that takes the container on to Lyon. -Rose George

The best way to deal with climate change has been obvious for years: cut greenhouse-gas emissions severely. We haven't done that. In 2010, for example, carbon emissions rose by six per cent – the largest such increase on record. -Michael Specter

Thanh Hoa itself is a rich agricultural province. Rice fields, a pattern of many shades of green, stretch far into the distance along the road, which also winds through foothills and the fringes of heavy jungle where tigers are said to roam. The vegetation, wild or cultivated, is lush. -Noam Chomsky

When I was 14, I almost had a big green leprechaun tattooed on my forearm. Thank God I didn't – it would have been a nightmare to cover up as an actor. I went with a group of mates and, being Irish, thought a leprechaun would be perfect. -Jonas Armstrong

'Noah' doesn't merely get the story wrong; like all Biblical adaptations, it's bound to do that (although some aspects of the film are out and out ridiculous). It gets the morality of the story wrong, and in the process turns God into Gaia and morality into radical deep green environmentalism. -Ben Shapiro

Conservatives are routinely pilloried on television. A&E likely greenlit 'Duck Dynasty' in the first place because executives believed Americans would laugh at the redneck antics of the self-described 'white trash' family. -Ben Shapiro

The Muslim world just doesn't believe that skin color is all that important. Obama may be half-black, but he's still all-Western, according to them. It doesn't matter whether you're black, white or green – if you're not a devotee of Muhammad, you don't matter. -Ben Shapiro

Really, the proper study of economics is fulfilment, not consumption… It doesn't even matter if it's a green product or a green house… It's still consumption. What matters in this world is the fulfilment of people's needs and the fulfilment of their aspirations. -Paul Hawken

Each solstice is a domain of experience unto itself. At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow. -Gary Zukav

The U.S. immigration system is the most generous in the world, providing each year more green cards for legal permanent residence with a clear path to full citizenship than all the rest of the nations of the world combined. -Jan C. Ting

Nest really came out of a process where I was trying to design the most connected and the most green home that I knew of. I was curious of just about everything that goes into a home and building a home. -Tony Fadell

I started designing the greenest the most connected home before the iPhone and the iPad. -Tony Fadell

I performed in public for the first time at three years old. I remember it like it was yesterday. It was on a big stage. There were probably three or four hundred people in the audience. We were doing this dance, this Kermit the Frog routine, all of us in our little green leotards. -Jaime Pressly

I want to change the color of Starbucks from green to red. Whose job was it to say, 'This is going to be green?' I want that to be my job. -Theophilus London

My worst ever car was a green Datsun B210, back when they called it 'Datsun' – now it's 'Nissan.' Very unsexy, unattractive. Girls hated the car. I was embarrassed to even be in it… but it was my transportation. -Ice Cube

The evergreen story of people in debt becomes even sexier in an economic downturn, when debts inevitably get harder to pay. -Virginia Postrel

The low point for neon came in 1982, when Holiday Inn did away with its signature 'Great Sign,' replacing the neon extravaganza with a forgettable green plastic box. -Virginia Postrel

We need to remind ourselves that our ultimate goal is not to reduce greenhouse gases or global warming per se but to improve the quality of life and the environment. We all want to leave the planet in decent shape for our kids. Radically reducing greenhouse gas emissions is not necessarily the best way to achieve that. -Thomas P.M. Barnett

I hope that any expansion of London will learn from the planning examples of some of its most desirable areas such as Chelsea, Notting Hill, Belgravia and Mayfair. All are characterised by high density and a generosity of green spaces. -Norman Foster

Anything that reduces fuel consumption and cuts down on greenhouse gasses is good news. -Norman Foster

Manufacturing doesn't just mean building cars and metal-bashing; it includes making pharmaceuticals and hi-tech electronics. A crucial part of the process is the research and development that allows better and greener products to come to market. Britain has traditionally had a strong science and engineering base. -Martin Rees

Ojibwe prophecy speaks of a time during the seventh fire when our people will have a choice between two paths. The first path is well-worn and scorched. The second path is new and green. It is our choice as communities and as individuals how we will proceed. -Winona LaDuke

When I'm writing a novel, which is what I like to write, I get up early, sit zazen, make a pot of green tea. I wear wrist cuffs to keep my wrists warm and minimize irritation from extended contact with the surface of my desk. I sit down and write. -Ruth Ozeki

I love collard greens and sweet potatoes. But like, traveling, I'm always just looking for that thing where you feel like there's love in the food. Like one of the best things, in Brazil it's feijoada. I was in Tobago in the winter, and I had the best roti I've ever had, with curry goat. -Neneh Cherry

Make sure that when you look at your plate, it's a beautiful blank canvas to start with, and you want lots of color on there. You want to make sure you have whole grains and protein. It should not be beige in color; it should be green and bright red, and orange and yellow. -Summer Sanders

A great way to get all the right nutrients is to make a colorful plate – mix of good vegetables, carbohydrates, and protein. If you notice all your vegetables are green, change it up and add another color for a variety of benefits in one meal. -Summer Sanders

The success of 'The Fighter' made it a lot easier to get 'Broken City' green-lit. And the buzz about 'The Fighter' also made it a lot easier to get 'Contraband' green-lit. -Mark Wahlberg

The tree I had in the garden as a child, my beech tree, I used to climb up there and spend hours. I took my homework up there, my books, I went up there if I was sad, and it just felt very good to be up there among the green leaves and the birds and the sky. -Jane Goodall

It's been proven by quite a few studies that plants are good for our psychological development. If you green an area, the rate of crime goes down. Torture victims begin to recover when they spend time outside in a garden with flowers. So we need them, in some deep psychological sense, which I don't suppose anybody really understands yet. -Jane Goodall

I do not go outdoors… As far as I'm concerned, the whole point of living in New York City is indoors. You want greenery? Order the spinach. -David Rakoff

The grass is always greener around the fire hydrant. -Jeff Rich

There's no shortage of Democrats who are at least as committed as Schwarzenegger to reducing greenhouse gases. -Timothy Noah

Romney has become reluctant to say that human activity causes global warming, and even in his greener days he was always somewhat cagey about which remedies he'd support. -Timothy Noah

The CIA's official history of the Bay of Pigs operation is filled with dramatic and harrowing details that not only lay bare the strategic, logistical, and political problems that doomed the invasion, but also how the still-green President John F. Kennedy scrambled to keep the U.S. from entering into a full conflict with Cuba. -Robert Dallek

The NSA is forbidden to 'target' American citizens, green-card holders or companies for surveillance without an individual warrant from a judge. -Barton Gellman

My first day of high school, I wore brown boys' corduroys that my mom had sewn Sesame Street elastic into – they were my coolest pants – and a lime green Patagonia fleece that my mom found at Goodwill. I loved fleece. -Cameron Russell

If you have some potatoes, green beans and cauliflower, you have a heck of a dish that can feed an entire family. -Jose Andres

In Spain, we mainly use red plum tomatoes, but it is always fun to experiment. Try using a mix of colors or substitute green tomatoes for plum next time you make a tomato dish. -Jose Andres

I've only ever played 'God of War' while we were shooting it. I've seen a lot of the videos, but while we were shooting 'God of War,' they had a green room for the actors to hang out in, and they always had the newest game on the big screen. So we'd sit there playing 'God of War' to get us into the mood. -Joseph Gatt

I'm extremely proud of being Latin; it's a big part of my life. It's not something I outwardly promote, just like I don't outwardly promote that I have green eyes and blonde hair. It's a part of who I am. I love the richness of the culture I grew up within. -Joanna Garcia

Natural gas emits only half the carbon dioxide of coal when burned, but if methane leaks when oil companies extract it from the ground in a sloppy manner – methane is far more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide – it can wipe out all the advantages of natural gas over coal. -Thomas Friedman

You have to be sharp with all aspects of your game at Augusta. You need to put yourself in the best spot off the tee and hit the longest drive you can, but I think this is really a second-shot course. If you leave yourself with an awkward putt on the greens, it can be very tricky here. -Louis Oosthuizen

You've got so much confidence if you start making big putts because you know you just need to hit the greens, and you've got yourself a good opportunity for the birdies. -Louis Oosthuizen

On the practice green, I hit a lot of four-footers with my right hand only. But whatever grip I'm using, you can bet I'm feeling good about it. Otherwise, I'd change. That's how I avoid slumps. -Louis Oosthuizen

I'm not a crazy granola person. I like to wear beautiful clothes, and I like having a glass of wine, but it doesn't mean I don't work out every day and drink green juices. -Phoebe Tonkin

My passport's green. -Seamus Heaney

I can only tell you that eggs, country ham, biscuits, a pot of coffee, a morning paper, a table by the window overlooking the veranda and putting green, listening to the idle chitchat of competitors, authors, wits and philosophers, hasn't exactly been a torturous way to begin each day at the Masters all these years. -Dan Jenkins

I was four or five, and my mom got all the Power Rangers to come through. I thought it was really them. I started crying tears of joy. It was so amazing. My favorite Power Ranger was the green one. He wasn't in every episode – he was rare, like Based God. He was like the Based God Power Ranger. -Domo Genesis

I think what's cool about a body-switching movie is, 'The grass is always greener:' the idea that someone else has a better life than I do. -Jim Rash

Shooting against greenscreen… my choice of filming is, like, I'd rather shoot on location than shoot on a set, and I'd rather shoot on a set than shoot against greenscreen. You start stripping away the layers of reality, and it becomes a lot less fun to actually film. -Neil Marshall

I flipped through a book on harp seals in the late 1970s and saw images of them swimming in emerald green pools of water surrounded by huge sheets of ice. Right then I was hooked, and I knew this was a story I wanted to do. -Brian Skerry

My dad's idea of punishment was to dress me up in all green to disguise me as grass, and then throw me in the pasture. Cows bit me all over. -Bryan Callen

As cities have grown rapidly across the nation, many have neglected infrastructure projects and paved over green spaces that once absorbed rainwater. -Charles Duhigg

I was distressed by the poor quality of the debate surrounding energy. I was also noticing so much green wash from politicians and big business. I was tired of the debate – the extremism, the nimbyism, the hair shirt. We need a constructive conversation about energy, not a Punch and Judy show. I just wanted to try to reboot the whole debate. -David J. C. MacKay

'Mars et Avril' is a science fiction film. It's set in Montreal some 50 years in the future. No one had done that kind of movie in Quebec before because it's expensive, it's set in the future, and it's got tons of visual effects, and it's shot on green screen. -Martin Villeneuve

Based on German prototypes, green walls and roofs are a natural idea in Singapore's tropical environment, where mosses, ferns, philodendrons, orchids and other epiphytes literally grow on trees. -Alan Huffman

The sets on 'Defiance' are incredible. I've never really seen a set like this, where the world is so built around us. There's not too much left for us to have to imagine. We do a lot of stuff on the green screen as well, but when we're outside in the streets, it's all there. It's amazing! The creators have just been incredible. -Stephanie Leonidas

I suspect that most people in the world will travel through or at least wish to travel through Miami in their lifetimes. I think it is on the same level as seeing the pyramids in Giza for many people. But, Miami is slippery: It is a place that is always that distant orgiastic green light while also being a hot, tropical, and very real place. -Jim Drain

Apple's Industrial Design team is harder to get into than the Illuminati, and part of the reason is because no one leaves. In the last 15 years, not one of the 18 designers has ditched Apple for greener pastures. -Jonathan Ive

Blue and green eyes will be so common that dark brown will become the rare and newly desired eye color. -Tyra Banks

From Clara Barton's tireless work founding the American Red Cross to the first female Medal of Honor winner, Dr. Mary Walker, to our first female combat fighter pilot Lt. Kara Hultgreen, no list of American heroes is complete without the names of some of these extraordinary women. -Brian Kilmeade

Lunch is a big huge salad with every color in it. From leafy greens to purple to herbs, fresh cut herbs mixed into it for flavors. I vary what I toss into it. Sometimes it might be lentils and chopped tomatoes, other days it could be garbanzo beans, some days I might have just a salad and have some lentil soup on the side. -Christie Brinkley

Stats are important to me, especially the ones related to scoring. You're going to miss fairways and greens out here, so how you play from the sand really matters. -Jordan Spieth

In greenside bunkers, the big thing is to adapt your stance to the shot. It's rare that you get a flat lie in the sand, so I make sure to align my body to the slope. Then I blast the ball out by splashing the sand underneath it. -Jordan Spieth

I was on the cusp – or thought I was on the cusp – of celebrity, the result of starring as an adorable curly-haired alien in the miniseries 'V' on NBC. 'V' was a hit, and then got green-lit as a series. During the hiatus, the only job I auditioned for that fit my schedule was 'Nightmare on Elm Street.' That's the real reason I said yes. -Robert Englund

I'm not curing cancer or running a small county. I haven't developed a greener car. I just play act. And if I can bring people a moment of fun and relief in their lives, well, that's the win. -Jane Elliot

I think you make the best with what you've got, you know? Sometimes you have very little. And you just always try to rise to higher ground, because you're going to suffer one way or the other, so you just hope that you have strength and perseverance and good friends and faith, some kind of faith, to endure and move on to greener pastures. -Pierce Brosnan

I don't ever do those kind of epic, huge, green-screen movies. -Michael Douglas

I balance my hormones with bioidentical hormones, I eat organic, I take supplements as determined by lab work, I sleep eight hours nightly, I use organic cosmetics and green household cleaners, and I avoid toxins as best I can. -Suzanne Somers

You probably don't hit as many fairway-bunker shots as you do the greenside ones, and that unfamiliarity might make you a bit nervous. -Ernie Els

Because of the grass and open face, I take one more club for shots from the rough, unless the ball is sitting on top of dry grass. Then, I use more loft and swing softer, trying to hit it about 70 percent to avoid a flyer over the green. -Ernie Els

I plot the par 5s back from the green and make my plan. If I can reach the green in two shots, I'm going to be aggressive off the tee. But if 's a three-shot hole, the goal changes. You want to put yourself in position to hit your favorite shot to the green. -Ernie Els

Some players like to change clubs around the green to hit high or low shots. I play all of my short-game shots with my 54-degree sand wedge and change my ball position to hit it higher or lower. I think it's easier to learn one club than four. -Ernie Els

I'm a pretty low-stress guy. I take what the golf course gives me. Some days, when I'm in full control, I'm able to fire at pins with 5-irons. Other days, I'm looking more toward the middle of the green. -Matt Kuchar

It's such an advantage to be able to hit short irons low on command. When it's windy, you'll hit more greens. But low shots are a great strategy in calm conditions, too: The less time the ball hangs in the air, the less time it has to stray off line from the flagstick. -Keegan Bradley

The greenness of Ireland is a false greenness, after all. Not that it isn't green – the place can still make you have to pull off and swallow one of your heart pills. It's that the greenness doesn't mean what it seems. It doesn't encode a pastoral past, much less a timeless vale where wee folk trip the demesne. -John Jeremiah Sullivan

One of the most magical places on Earth is a small island in the Caribbean called Mustique. With brilliant beaches, warm water, and lush vegetation, this tiny green swath of land is my idea of paradise. -Nina Garcia

I do eat what I want. I love meat – I'm Cuban: I grew up eating meat, platanos, and arroz con pollo. I don't believe in starving yourself, but sometimes I do cleanses and diets to prepare for a role. I choose a lot of greens, proteins, and fats, and I like to be really active. -Natalie Martinez

I love a cardboard coffin. Both Mummy and Daddy went off in cardboard coffins, painted – Daddy's was rifle green. Beautifully made. -Joanna Lumley

My eyes are green, and in one of them there is a splash of brown – apparently it is not a colour, but a freckle! Sometimes I notice that one eyelid droops more than the other. -Rick Wakeman

'Blasto' is a new game for Sony Playstation. It's an awesome three-dimensional game, and I play the character Blasto who's sort of a Flash Gordon barrel-chested superhero who goes to Uranus and shoots these little green alien Fascist guys. He rescues babes; he goes on wild rides. -Phil Hartman

The classic Italian green sauce, salsa verde, is easy to make and especially nice in the spring when bunches of fresh herbs start appearing in the farmers market or in your garden. -Tom Douglas

I do everything: I'll have a green juice, then a melted chocolate ice cream. I stay up very late, I get up very early. -Lykke Li

There are always challenges to green screen. -Martin Freeman

If you want your film to be instantly green-lit, your first approach is not to go to a relatively unknown English actor. They're not going to throw millions of dollars at you for that. -Martin Freeman

I like to carry a concealer palette that has a green, a yellow, and a tan color. I like to carry the green one because when I have a pimple, it's good to use that to contrast the red. Then you put the yellow over it, and it helps it disappear. -Francia Raisa

Godzilla. The big, green G-man has had a profound influence on my creative endeavors and imagination since I was blueberry-avoiding kid. -Jeremy Robinson

The irony is that the more we fight age, the more it shows. Paint on a 50-year-old face brings to mind a Gilbert and Sullivan comic figure. Smooth the cheeks, and suddenly the ear lobes and hands look out of place. Do we run around in October, painting the gold leaves green? -Karen DeCrow

I taught world history. I understand there was an Ice Age… seasons come and seasons go. I do not believe the world's going to end because of the 2 percent man-made greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. And even if it were, we're not going to stop it. -John Shimkus

Biodiversity can't be maintained by protecting a few species in a zoo, or by preserving greenbelts or national parks. To function properly, nature needs more room than that. It can maintain itself, however, without human expense, without zookeepers, park rangers, foresters or gene banks. All it needs is to be left alone. -Donella Meadows

We should make it as easy as possible to be able to get a legal work visa – not citizenship, not a green card. Just a work visa, with a background check and a Social Security card so that applicable taxes would get paid. -Gary Johnson

Letting the greens dictate your energy choices, whether it's halting the XL Pipeline or fracking in New York, isn't just bad economics. It can also leave your rivals and enemies controlling your energy destiny. -Arthur L. Herman

Light is a metaphoric thing. There is green light and red light. Then there is black light, which is mostly danger. -Sigmar Polke

As we settle into 2013, I predict this: We'll see companies that promote this shift from private ownership thrive. More people will be able to access things they simply don't need to own, and they'll save money and live better, cleaner, green lives doing it. -Lynn Jurich

Innovative companies have started to realize there are not enough 'green consumers' willing to pay more for something just because it's green. -Lynn Jurich

There is a new wave of environmental consumers I like to call Pocketbook Environmentalists. They're going green primarily because it makes good financial sense, but the fact that it benefits their families' health and the environment also makes them feel good. -Lynn Jurich

For Pocketbook Environmentalists, financial savings are the primary motivator. However Pocketbook Environmentalists are changing the face of the market and the planet for the better by demanding that going green saves you money. -Lynn Jurich

While at The Evergreen State College, I met Doranne Crable, and she was so dynamic and adventurous that I decided on the spot to take whatever she taught. -Bre Pettis

There are lots of brownfield sites in Stoke, but they are not suitable for building executive homes. It needs to be surrounded by fields. It needs to be on greenbelt land. That's what executives want. -John Caudwell

The future is in green energy; it's in making steel for energy-efficient cars. -Alexei Mordashov

The game itself, I think, plays into the strength of my game, which has always been tee to green, hitting the ball consistently in play and managing my game. Putting has always been the one thing that's been a bit more erratic. -Tom Lehman

Augusta is a very unique golf course. It's a long hitters' course; main reason is because the greens are so severe, and the areas where they put the pin is such a small area. The little plateaus and undulations mean it's incredibly important to be close to that pin so you can be aggressive. -Fred Funk

I'm a self-confessed geek, and my whole concept of music at first was entirely electronic. In many ways, it turned out to be an advantage. I was so green, so utterly naive about the nature of classical music, that I did things that made me look totally, deliberately unorthodox. -Eric Whitacre

When I was eight, nine years of age, my mother bought me a pair of green trousers – corduroy green trousers. I didn't like green, and I basically buried them underground. And my mother kept asking me, 'Where are your trousers?' I said, 'Oh, I don't know.' And from then on I stopped wearing green. -Brunello Cucinelli

When I was younger, my mum used to dress me in, like, lime green leggings with a matching neon jumper and hair scrunch, so I'd say I've definitely progressed since then in terms of style. -Sophie Turner

The green appeal of solar sailing – traveling by light, once chemical propellants have done their dirty job of orbital insertion – ought to be powerful. -Thomas Mallon

You could engineer a human to survive the greenhouse effect because you think that's what's going to happen, and then all of a sudden the glaciers are creeping down on you. -Paul Di Filippo

If you're on a budget, Sweetgreen is a new chain of salad bars that are very good but inexpensive. You choose from a menu or customise your own, with some protein, a healthy salad and a great dressing. -Daniel Boulud

Diseases happen in acidic environments, so it's very important to keep your body alkaline. Keeping a diet high in leafy greens, spring water, fresh air, raw almonds, lemons, grapefruits, and warm water with juice from half a lemon helps lower acidity levels. -Valentina Zelyaeva

Throughout the day, I'll make a lot of green smoothies or salads, and then when I travel, I try my hardest to just keep up the regime. It's not always easy, but I do my best. -Valentina Zelyaeva

At first, my bedroom had flowers and yellow walls and huge furniture in plastic that was orange and green – and furry green bed cover and everything. Then, I think the day I turned 13, I painted the walls black and put Kurt Cobain on the wall and just changed everything into a dark theme. -Tove Lo

Is the button white or orange or green or yellow? Does it say 'sell', or 'sell now', or 'on sale' or 'for sale'? You test, you test, you test and most of the ideas you try fail and so I would argue I failed my way to success. -Fabrice Grinda

Trying to do business without advertising is like winking at a pretty girl through a pair of green goggles. You may know what you are doing, but no one else does. -Cyrus McCormick

Job creation is a choice. Investing in cleaner, greener technologies that allow us to strike a more sustainable balance with the other living systems of this earth – this, too, is a choice. -Martin O'Malley

I have an African gray parrot; her name is Eli. We thought she was a boy. And a blue-streaked lory named Marco. He's 10. And a yellow and green parakeet, Petey. He's very cute, but he's getting old. -Roz Chast

Pre-preproduction is the tenuous time before a project is greenlit; before the studio commits to spending real money. This is the most vulnerable period for any film because it's the time when your project is most likely to be put into turnaround. That's film-speak for killed off. -Peter Jackson

I can be a bit extreme. I'll spend too much time running round the park, doing yoga and drinking green tea. I can get a bit obsessive. I have to rein it in sometimes. -Sam Taylor-Johnson

Nowadays, to get a movie greenlit, you have to make an incredible effort. -Catherine Hardwicke

As a director, you've got to have quite a few projects going because you never know which one will actually come together with the financing and get the green light. -Catherine Hardwicke

I have a bunch of movies that are, like, two minutes from being green-lit, or that they've maybe even told me are green-lit. But I never believe it until I see the money. -Catherine Hardwicke

Before 'Twilight' was greenlit, I had four projects at four studios. I worked super-hard on all of them, but 'Twilight' was greenlit first. -Catherine Hardwicke

I have an 'office,' technically. I never use it. I work on a couch in my living room, with my laptop on my lap, looking out the windows. I love space and green things. And I'm an incredibly casual person. I slouch. I close the laptop and just lie on the couch for a while if I need to think. I put my feet up on a table while I type. -Ramez Naam

We must learn to set our emotions aside and embrace what science tells us. GMOs and nuclear power are two of the most effective and most important green technologies we have. If – after looking at the data – you aren't in favour of using them responsibly, you aren't an environmentalist. -Ramez Naam

People only watch my shows for me, and those shows have remained evergreen long after the guests are forgotten. -Barry Humphries

I sat in the green room at Radio City Music Hall for the 2006 NFL Draft. At my table, I was encircled by my parents, brother, agent, former coaches and close friends. -D'Brickashaw Ferguson

Green, red, and mixed shades of haemins are known. If magnesium is replaced by iron in chlorophyll, green haemins are obtained. Their colour is due to a strong band in the red which is already recognized in chlorophyll. -Otto Heinrich Warburg

By high school, I was already tall – 5-foot-8 – and one day I made the mistake of wearing green tights. The football players all started calling me the Jolly Green Giant. -Rene Russo

In the late 1960s, red and the low green LEDs and the infrared semiconductor lasers had already been developed, but there was no prospect of practical blue light emitters, even in the '70s. -Isamu Akasaki

I don't have a problem with green screen at all. I think children invented CGI. We invent worlds. A stick can become a sword. Or a bowl of stones can become a bowl of tomatoes. That's what children do, and that's what CGI enables us to do. -Rhys Ifans

I've done a lot of kale as well as broccoli. I love it. Asparagus I couldn't stand before, but now it is part of my meals. All three of those are greens that I never used to eat. Now, a smoothie for me is nothing but fruits and veggies and vanilla Greek yogurt. -Donald Driver

The longer I spent time on 'The Daily Show,' standing in front of a green screen pretending to report from war zones and hot spots around the world – most often from somewhere in the Middle East – the more I began to realize that 'The Daily Show' was radicalizing me. -Aasif Mandvi

I think sometimes parents and teachers can push children away from reading by telling them it's something they must do, the same way they must eat their greens and must pass their exams in school. Poppycock! Read or don't read – that's your call. -Darren Shan

I think every business should build on their strengths, and the strengths of Victoria are our clean, green agriculture; the strengths of Victoria are our strong education system. -Denis Napthine

If you look at America, one of the great strengths of America is its university towns and the way a lot of their businesses and a lot of their innovation and enormous economic growth have come from reducing that gap, getting those universities directly involved in start-up businesses, green field businesses, new development businesses. -Denis Napthine

Raw leafy greens contain only about 100 calories per pound and are packed with nutrients. -Joel Fuhrman

Three of the most beneficial, longevity promoting anti-cancer foods are green vegetables, beans, and onions. -Joel Fuhrman

Green is one of my favorite colors – emerald green. -Rachel Tucker

I grew up on black sand greens. The best tees were old, dry cowpies, believe it or not. -Billy Casper

It's not going to help the country to be subsidizing uneconomical forms of energy – whether you call them 'green,' 'renewable' or whatever. In that case, the cure is worse than the disease. -Charles Koch

If we are serious about moving toward energy independence in a cost-effective way, we should invest in solar energy. If we are serious about cutting air and water pollution and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, we should invest in solar energy. -Bernie Sanders

For every $1 billion we invest in public transportation, we create 30,000 jobs, save thousands of dollars a year for each commuter, and dramatically cut greenhouse gas emissions. -Bernie Sanders

With each passing decade, history becomes less real for us, less immediate and essential to our way of life, and so, like 'green' nature, more of a commodity or an advertising gimmick. -John Burnside

My favorite part was when my grandfather and I would make a special trip to Firpo's Bakery for red and green Christmas cookies and fruitcake studded with the sweetest cherries I've ever tasted. Usually Firpo's was too expensive for our slim budget, but Christmas mornings they gave a discount to any children who came in. -Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

I have one thing that I'm saving for my son. It's a 1965 Chevy Impala Super Sport. It's a beautiful sea-foam green color. It's like a teal green, white interior, and it's just a gorgeous car. -CeeLo Green

I've been a supporter of green initiatives for years. I've been paying more and more attention to it, you know, with three kids. I thought it was tragic when the Kyoto Protocol was killed by the U.S. It was sort of a call to action. -Barry Sternlicht

If it can be profitable to be green, that's just smart business. -Barry Sternlicht

I've been down to the Ecolodge in Panama, but there really are only a handful of real green hotels in the U.S. -Barry Sternlicht

I've been approached in the past to option my stories for television, but prior to Evergreen, there were no assurances the production would be filmed in Alaska. -Dana Stabenow

My stories are Alaska stories, and they need to be told in Alaska. Evergreen Films is located in Alaska; the company does amazing work, and I am thrilled at the prospect of working together. -Dana Stabenow

Broccoli gets such a bad rap. This is perplexing to those of us who love that green, treelike, stalky vegetable. -Kate Christensen

I really believe that the aliens are us from the future. It seems to me a very plausible reason that explains a lot of phenomena as opposed to green men with one eye from outer space. -Chris Squire

In library science school, back in the years of glowing green non-graphical screens and protocols called Archie and Veronica, I wrote Internet documentation. -Elizabeth McCracken

In terms of environmental impact, Samasource jobs are very green. Our product is human intelligence, and it's transported through the Internet rather than via carbon-intensive trucking, shipping, and warehousing. -Leila Janah

Many of us, if pressed, would admit that we'd prefer a cash gift to another pair of pajamas or bestselling novel. But giving the green can make even the best of us uncomfortable – the etiquette is confusing, and those who relish picking out the perfect something can miss some of the fun. -Jean Chatzky

I love music. I love filmmaking. I love law enforcement. I love doing a lot of the green work that I do, the charity work that I do, and I don't think that any one person has to be just one thing. -Steven Seagal

Climate change is not the fault of man. It's Mother Nature's way. And sucking greenhouse gases from the atmosphere is too limited a solution. We have to be prepared for fire or ice, for fry or freeze. We have to be prepared for change. -Howard Bloom

There is universal consensus among experts that the earth's atmosphere is heating up – and that we are responsible for it by putting carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We also know that the consequences of global warming are catastrophic. But how do we make sure that all countries reduce greenhouse gases? -Eric Maskin

Try to rally up as many people as you can with as much information as you can to try to get it to appear in front of the right people in the organization who are the decision-makers to greenlight the project. -Jon Oringer

After one hundred days of confinement following a bone marrow transplant, I rejoiced in taking short walks to a nearby park as I was writing 'Girl in Hyacinth Blue.' The uncertainty of my survival made every blade of grass gorgeous in its green intensity, lifting itself up, doing its part to make the world beautiful. -Susan Vreeland

One day when I was 16, I rode my bike to the nearby DMV office to get my driver's permit. Some of my friends already had their licenses, so I figured it was time. But when I handed the clerk my green card as proof of U.S. residency, she flipped it around, examining it. 'This is fake,' she whispered. 'Don't come back here again.' -Jose Antonio Vargas

I am Amaxon Corazon Junia Principia Delgado the Third, and I bent over my meal and wept luxurious tears into my green banana porridge. It was a perfect decoction, and it now would not satisfy me. -Nalo Hopkinson

I'm a city boy. I grew up in a big city, in Birmingham, and I want to write about a city. It's much richer tapestry for me than green fields. Fields and wild life make me feel ill. I don't like – I don't want to write about that stuff. -Mark Billingham

I'm practical, very data-driven, and process-oriented. If I look at a radar and see a giant green blob coming toward me, I'm thinking it's probably going to snow. -Kevin Jorgeson

The basic science is very well established; it is well understood that global warming is due to greenhouse gases. What is uncertain is projections about specifics in the next few decades, by how much will the climate change. -Mario J. Molina

If you're a technology investor, and you decide that you're also going to be a healthcare investor or a green-tech investor, that doesn't usually work out that well. There are reasons why people make their careers studying these things and becoming experts. -Bill Maris

Wheresoever thou findest a high mountain or a lofty hill and a green tree, know that an idol is there! -Akiva ben Joseph

What child has ever known the country and has not twined hundreds of fragrant wreaths with the yellow shining cowslip and the more frail and delicate violet – mingling here and there green leaves culled from the odorous eglantine, or, as we more commonly call it, sweetbriar. -Dorothea Dix

The lovely daisy, so justly celebrated by European poets, is not a native of our soil; we know it well, however, by cultivation in our gardens and green houses; besides, we are disposed to remember it for the sake of those who have sung its praises in immortal verse. -Dorothea Dix

Green vegetables are something that fascinate chefs; the ability to keep vegetables green. How do we keep them green? What makes them green? Why are they green? And then that sort of army green. Why do they go from bright vibrant electric green to army green, and how can we avoid that? -Wylie Dufresne

Pictures are very important. I remember at home we had illustrated editions of Rudyard Kipling's 'Just So Stories' and 'The Jungle Book,' which were read to me. Living in Zimbabwe made it very real, especially the 'Just So Stories' with the 'great grey-green greasy Limpopo.' -Korky Paul

The simplest way to remove carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, is to grow plants – preferably trees, since they tie up more of the gas in cellulose, meaning it will not return to the air within a season or two. Plants build themselves out of air and water, taking only a tiny fraction of their mass from the soil. -Gregory Benford

In coastal waters rich in runoff, plankton can swarm densely, a million in a drop of water. They color the sea brown and green where deltas form from big rivers, or cities dump their sewage. Tiny yet hugely important, plankton govern how well the sea harvests the sun's bounty, and so are the foundation of the ocean's food chain. -Gregory Benford

Range Rovers are the greenest cars on the road. -Peter Hargreaves

The prize was really for the molecule. In 1962, Osamu Shimomura discovered a protein in a jellyfish that caused it to glow bright green. With colleagues, 30 years later, I was able to insert this G.F.P. gene into bacteria and make them turn green. -Martin Chalfie

With the exception of autotrophic bacteria, the green, or chlorophyll-bearing, plants are the only living forms on this planet capable of synthesizing organic matter out of inorganic elements and simple compounds. -Selman Waksman

Phoenix is an interesting example. Drive around and see the golf courses everywhere, and you see people's big green lawns. And you live in a desert! I've always remarked about the capacity of human beings to look at somewhere and move there because of its uniqueness and its beauty and then change it. -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

When you talk to a Republican, many of them just outright say, 'Yeah. Climate change isn't real,' without assessing the facts, and it's a big problem. It's not a red or blue issue, it's a green issue… Not because of facts or science but because of emotion. -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

Lincoln prevailed: wearing his green shawl in the White House and gripped with melancholy, his feet constantly cold, he preserved a nation that had begun to unravel, often holding it together with nothing more than the flat of his hand and his unfaltering sense of human worth. -Jerome Charyn

From space, the earth appears predominantly blue; the clouds are brilliant white. Surprisingly, you don't see much green, although Ireland looks green, and so do Scandinavia and New Zealand. The deserts are brick red and really stand out. -Helen Sharman

Apple has made this commitment that it's a green company. So how do you fulfill your commitment if you don't consider you have responsibility in your suppliers' pollution? -Ma Jun

Living in Manhattan opened me to whole new sets of things to envy, study, gather and imagine stealing. A full-size 1809 German harp, beautifully painted with three goddesses, covered in a pea-green coat of great silvery refinement: mine for $180. Though all its strings were broken, its beauty let it claim a quarter of my one – bedroom. -Allan Gurganus

I tried putting teabags under my eyes because they say that the green tea – the caffeine – will help with under-eye bags and moisture. It worked! That's a new tip. -Olivia Culpo

I like coffee in the morning and decaf green tea throughout the day… When I was younger and modeling, to kick-start a diet I would do a juice cleanse. -Christie Brinkley

When I'm working with improv people, I give them the green light to just bring it and try things. -Jon Favreau

Any acting is a stretch of the imagination. That's your job. Acting is truth in imaginary circumstances. Acting with green screen or a motion capture stage, you're striving for absolute truth in absolutely imaginary circumstances. -Sam Worthington

There is no earthly reason why Walmart and McDonald's and Walgreens and these other giant, profitable institutions should have one worker in need of public assistance. It's ridiculous. -Nick Hanauer

If you put me in the fairway at my average distance into a par 4, 175 to 180 yards, and you put another player in the rough 120 yards from the green, over time, I'm going to wear him out. -Zach Johnson

The breadfruit is a superb tree, about 60 feet high, with deep green, shining leaves, a foot broad, sharply and symmetrically cut, worthy, from their exceeding beauty of form, to take the place of the acanthus in architectural ornament, and throwing their pale green fruit into delicate contrast. -Isabella Bird

I used a kind of gray-green early on in my practice for painting steel, to make it look more like it had a kind of patina to it, like copper and bronze and so on. The color I used was a Benjamin Moore color called 2012. My then-young daughter started calling me 2012 – it was my nickname. -Michael Graves

Writing a film is like building a brick wall. You have a plan, and you have the blocks. Then, somebody says, 'I think we'll take this stone out of here and put it over there. And while we're at it, let's make this stone red and that stone green.' -Leigh Brackett

At first, I was able to use a Bunsen burner attached to my mother's gas stove, but the use of the kitchen as a laboratory came to an abrupt end when a minor explosion involving hydrogen sulphide spattered the newly painted decor and changed the colour from blue to dirty green! -John Vane

In plants, vitamin K is found principally in all kinds of green leaves; leaves which have grown in the dark and therefore have not formed chlorophyll are poor sources. -Henrik Dam

I don't even want to touch on the topic of black quarterback, because I think this game is bigger than black, white or even green. -Cam Newton

My unhealthiest habit is that I like eating white bread and butter. I don't know why, I just ate it as a kid. It's weird but I love it. My healthiest? I make a really good quinoa, chickpea and tahini lemon dressing salad, or I make a really bomb green smoothie. -Courtney Eaton

I was familiar with 'Addicted' for a long time, even prior to the movie, way before it got the greenlight. And when it finally got the greenlight, I was very happy to be a part of it. -Tasha Smith

On its 2015 list, the Fish and Wildlife Service included the 'ea, or hawksbill turtle, as well as the green turtle, Ridley sea turtle, leatherback turtle and loggerhead turtle. Four mammals are considered endangered: the Hawaiian hoary bat; the kohola, or humpback whale; the sperm whale; and the endemic Hawaiian monk seal. -Susanna Moore

The comeback of true green olives was part of a Spanish food revival in the early 2000s. I credit Sam and Sam Clark of Moro Restaurant in London with making them cool again. -Bee Wilson

The government is a very large constructor. They have schools, colleges, hospitals and courts, offices. We are trying to influence the public works department to adopt green buildings. -Jamshyd Godrej

As a group, we want to follow good and green strategy. Setting targets is one element of that. The second part is to design products which meet environmental goals. -Jamshyd Godrej

How do you actually green the supply chain is a challenge. The easier part is to do what we do; the difficult part is to get all your clients to long process will take time. -Jamshyd Godrej

When you believe in yourself, and you always give 100% in a relationship, you're very confident in the value of your love. But for some people, there's that feeling that the grass is always greener. -Ciara

How many people have different opinions in this world? Every different person has a different opinion of what that bottle really is or what colour it is. If I say that bottle is clear, there will be someone out there telling me that bottle is green or blue. -Tyson Fury

On our first record, man, I didn't know what I was doing. I was just playing. I was over playing. You're as green as you can be with no experience in recording or knowing how sometimes a song can work: when it's too much, when it's not enough, when it's not right. -Tommy Lee

We use many expressions of fennel: blended with potato, it's an earthy, rich puree; the raw fronds add a fresh, green note; and the braised version gives it a luscious, home-cooked feel, something people can connect to – you need that in any dish. -Daniel Humm

I might be a pretty earthy, crunchy girl, yes. There might be some crystals and Buddhas in my house. I may meditate and eat all green and compost… Yoga is a very regular part of my life. -Alysia Reiner

The benefits of a healthier diet are far-reaching because they also equate to fewer animals being bred into inhumane factory farm conditions and fewer greenhouse gas emissions. -Michael Greger

Popeye was right about spinach: dark green, leafy vegetables are the healthiest food on the planet. As whole foods go, they offer the most nutrition per calorie. -Michael Greger

You have to build up to green smoothies. Everyone loves fruit smoothies: you can add a handful of baby spinach to a fruit smoothie and may hardly even taste it. Next, try two. Slowly, your taste buds can adapt to more greens. -Michael Greger

Radium, discovered by Marie and Pierre Curie in 1898, was especially popular: the 'it' element of its day. Radium glows an eerie blue-green in the dark, giving off light for years without any apparent power source. People had never seen anything like it. -Sam Kean

In terms of flu prevention, for my son I'll do a quick smoothie, usually with spinach, avocado or broccoli. And then throw in strawberries and blueberries to hide the greens. -Tia Mowry

I love chicken and anything to do with chicken. I love anything that's homemade. Oh, and BBQ. And I love green beans. There is so much good food. I can go on and on and on. -Phillip Phillips

The grass is always greener on the other side – until you get there and see it's AstroTurf. Symbols are never reality. Someone might have amassed material success and fame, but that doesn't mean they're happy. So, don't go judging a person's life by the cover. -Karen Salmansohn

U.S. adversaries exploit power gaps. It's easier for Russia to invade Ukraine with irregular forces out of uniform, the so-called 'little green men,' than to send a conventional army that would challenge NATO. -David Ignatius

Images sometimes capture particular periods in history. The unreachable green light, beckoning from across the bay in 'The Great Gatsby,' has become a symbol of the yearning of America in the 1920s. -David Ignatius

I'm not really a big 'working out' person, but I definitely like to do cardio when I do. I guess I run sometimes, drink green juices once a week. -Bella Hadid

I love wearing green, and I like grey and black, but I don't think they really suit me. -Kate Williams

When I review my contract, it is to make sure that I am not going to get in trouble or not paid. Then afterward, people say, 'Did you make sure they gave you a green room,' and I'm like, 'No, I didn't get any of the cool stuff.' -Katie Nolan

I'm actually not a big coffee fan, so I don't drink it that much. I'd rather have a green tea. But I do love to get a white mocha sometimes – it is just a strong order. -Emeraude Toubia

The first thing I do in the morning is prepare fresh juice. I have 15 different recipes, which I drink for 15 days consecutively. Then I repeat the recipes from the beginning for the next 15 days of the month. My juices include fruit, vegetables, leafy greens, and even grains. -Izabel Goulart

It will be up to Congress to check the president's ambition of committing the U.S. to an international green scheme that will produce little or no return. -John Barrasso

In an agreement with China, President Obama has already pledged to reduce America's net greenhouse-gas emissions by more than 25% by 2025. In return, China has agreed to 'peak' its carbon-dioxide emissions in 2030. -John Barrasso

I greatly enjoyed the Hawaiian Islands. They are a real little paradise in spite of the influx of Americans who have made it one of their most pleasant 'centers of resort': the soft climate and luxuriance of the tropics; the greenness, the fragrance, the flowers – extraordinary flowers covering the tallest trees and turning them into huge bouquets. -Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Putting is an art. When you're not feeling confident on the greens, it will affect the rest of your game. -David Hearn

Personally, just being able to compete in an Olympics, being part of an Opening Ceremony wearing a green jacket with the rest of the Australian Olympic team, would be a more than a dream come true. -Henry Speight

Take it from someone who fled the Iron Curtain: I know what happens when you give the Russians a green light. -Madeleine Albright

Just think in terms of green energy and how much time, money, brain power and policy action has started to pour into green energy, and I think that's wonderful. We're going to need that same kind of effort towards global gridlock if we're going to keep the individual mobility that we all take for granted today. -William Clay Ford, Jr.

One of my favorite shots was on these, like, lava rocks – but moss was growing on it, and I was lying on it, and it was really green, and the picture was really pretty. -Lucky Blue Smith

The circus allows one to be logical and unreal at the same time. In the circus, all is possible: there can be a man with two heads or a character with a green face. -Fernando Botero

I like to cook. We always sit down together, my daughter and I, and have dinner – baked chicken breast or a piece of fish with green beans, rice or potatoes. And I love pasta. -Jo Marie Payton

Everything has yet to be invented. I never say 'green' – I say 'greener.' It's greener simply because this is a continuum of change, improvement and discovery. -Yves Behar

Prime Minister Cameron says he wants to be the greenest government ever, but the definition of green is immature… I don't deny for a moment that CO2 is a greenhouse gas, but there are so many other factors that affect climate. It is more complicated than the computer models that we are using. What the truth is, nobody knows. -Nigel Lawson

Climate change is a consequence of the build up of greenhouse gases over the past 200 years in the atmosphere, and virtually all these emissions came from the rich countries. -Gordon Brown

Though Africa is not responsible for emitting greenhouse gases, it is suffering the consequences of climate change. -Francois Hollande

The fight against global warming is a humanitarian issue – how the planet can be preserved – and it is also an issue of considerable economic importance, of what we call green growth. -Francois Hollande

The distribution of plants in a given locality is not more marked and defined than that of the birds. Show a botanist a landscape, and he will tell you where to look for the lady's-slipper, the columbine, or the harebell. On the same principles, the ornithologist will direct you where to look for the greenlets, the wood-sparrow, or the chewink. -John Burroughs

England is like the margin of a spring-run: near its source, always green, always cool, always moist, comparatively free from frost in winter and from drought in summer. -John Burroughs

I could take my grandma and put her in a cape, and they'll put her on a green screen, and they'll have stunt doubles come in and do all the action. Anybody can do it. They're relying on stunt doubles and green screen and $200 million budgets – it's all CGI created. To me, it's not authentic. -Jason Statham

The touring comic is a lonely soul, sometimes dabbling into conversation with a colleague in the green room, but on the whole, we just stand around and try to cope with the random diversity that comes with the 'job.' -Rhys Darby

With 'Greek Gods,' I wanted to go with the blue and green hues of sky and water; with 'Heroes,' I felt the color needed to be more dramatic and give a sense of battle, rage, and yes, of blood. That's the world these demigods lived in, and I felt that orange and red would also compliment the greenish blue of the 'Gods' cover. -John Rocco

Our top plank really is a Green New Deal to transform our economy to a green economy, 100 percent wind, water and sun by the year 2030 – we can do it; this is an emergency, and we must do it – but to use that as an opportunity to put America back to work, to renew our infrastructure, and to basically assure that everyone has a job. -Jill Stein

My diet has definitely become greener; however, I am a big proponent of everything in moderation. I enjoy having a farm-to-table dinner, as well as indulging in a special, decadent treat on occasion. -Ivanka Trump

You follow the law. Every few months, you need to fly back to Europe and stamp your visa. After a few visas, I applied for a green card and got it in 2001. After the green card, I applied for citizenship. And it was a long process. -Melania Trump

For a few months, I'd have a green juice every day, but one day, I realized I'd rather eat those ingredients than drink them. -Ellie Kemper

What's shocking to me is seeing people walking around with green juices in their hand when the weather's bad in New York. I couldn't think of anything more awful to have when it's sleeting outside. Like, 'Oh, I'm craving some liquified kale right now.' -Ellie Kemper

I look at the world through a green lens now, but you can't make yourself crazy. That feeling of green guilt can be really inhibiting. It's about a changing mind-set, remembering to turn off the water when you are brushing your teeth. -Rachel McAdams

We need to recognize the opportunity that green jobs present to Florida and to the economy. -Ted Deutch

There is a profiteer when it comes to oil. 36 to 63 cents per gallon is swept off the top. And who profits from that? The government profits from it. And what does the government do with much of that money? It puts it into so-called 'alternative energy,' with so-called phony 'green jobs' that we're yet to see being produced. -John Fleming

I'm not a green like most Democrats would be. I have a blue-collar district. -Gene Green

I did have a constituent four or five years ago – she never liked me. So, she called, I returned her call, and she was complaining about something, and she said: 'And why do you always use green? I think it's narcissistic.' And I said, 'Well, ma'am, everyone has to have a gimmick, and that's my gimmick.' -Gene Green

It just tends to be that the grass is always greener. If I'm doing a movie, I suddenly think, 'Oh God, I wish I could just get a play script I could get my teeth into.' If I'm doing eight shows a week in a West End musical, I think, 'God, how lovely it would be to be in a TV series right now.' -Douglas Hodge

Sometimes I think I'll go off and be a milkman or a greengrocer, some easy job. -Roger Rees

I wanted green in my hair, so I did green. And I got my sunflowers to match. I've never done it before. Just said, 'OK, I'm doing my hair green.' -Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

I like it when I'm chirpy and happy, so I decided to do my hair green. I got my sunflowers too – I was like a living, walking garden. -Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce

I've got a green card, so I can work there any time, but I hate reading about actors going to America, because it's not like that anymore. -Katherine Kelly

No matter who you are, the grass is never greener on the other side. -Venus Williams

I eat lots of vegetables and green juices. -Venus Williams

Early in the morning, it's super tough for me to eat right away, but I still need energy for practice. I try to start out with a protein smoothie, a green juice, or some sort of fruit. -Venus Williams

I'm a very, very healthy eater, so it's proteins, greens, proteins, and more greens – and lots of water. -Cynthia Erivo

I have the same sense of discovery and exhilaration from objects of design and everyday use – I am inspired by the buildings in my city, by park greenery and dazzling store windows, by the jaunty strollers and umbrellas and billboards I walk past. Just strolling our streets, we encounter creativity every single day. -Agnes Gund

I use dull colors in my drawings because I started out using a root beer base, because it seemed like an interesting idea, and when it turned out that it worked quite well as an ink, I started using other colors that would complement it, like grays from Higgins black writing ink and, more recently, Dr. P.H. Martin's olive green and vermilion. -Marcel Dzama

Franschhoek – French Corner – is a place which serves South Africans as a kind of sophisticated fantasy, an alternative version of what life could be. The small town is enclosed by wild mountains, at this time of year blue and dusty green. -Justin Cartwright

There's a green room at the Oscars. It's really small, very warm, and it's really fun because you get to see everyone just lounging on couches. It's right before you go out to present, so it's everyone in there. And then they have this crudite section, and cheeses and crackers. -Chrissy Teigen

I ate some pretty funky, authentic Chinese food in Hong Kong. There was an egg from some bird that's not a chicken. I can't remember what it was, but it was green and brown and not very tasty. -John Legend

I hope that I dress for my age. Because there's no need to be dowdy, is there? But I don't go with all the colours that everybody is wearing. I'm not very fond of lime green or orange, so I don't do that. I read all the fashion magazines, but most things are totally unsuitable for somebody of 79. -Mary Berry

In 2008, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded for work done on a molecule called green fluorescent protein that was isolated from the bioluminescent chemistry of a jellyfish, and it's been equated to the invention of the microscope in terms of the impact that it has had on cell biology and genetic engineering. -Edith Widder

When I was learning to creep, my mother set me down on the beach to see what I thought of it. I crawled straight for the coming wave and was just through the wall of green when she caught my heels. -Sylvia Plath

The sea was our main entertainment. When company came, we set them before it on rugs, with thermoses and sandwiches and colored umbrellas, as if the water – blue, green, gray, navy or silver as it might be – were enough to watch. -Sylvia Plath

I saw the first of the 7-mile-long column appear – red and orange and green banners, 'Ban the Bomb!' etc., shining and swaying slowly. Absolute silence. I found myself weeping to see the tan, dusty marchers, knapsacks on their backs – Quakers and Catholics, Africans and whites, Algerians and French – 40 percent were London housewives. -Sylvia Plath

I need to improve my shorter stuff with my irons, from 100 to 175 yards. If I can hit a few more greens with those clubs and tighten up the proximity to the hole, that would help a lot. -Jason Day

You get nit-picked in the media. Stats are always up saying he doesn't drive it straight enough or hit enough greens or whatever it is. Then you have to perform, because if you don't perform, then you're off the Tour. -Jason Day

I got my green card and everything through my work, even before marriage or anything like that, so you really have to follow the rules and do everything the right way to be able to accomplish that, so it was big… I had my green card for so long. -Camila Alves

I supplement a lot. So I'll take a probiotic, and I mostly eat green food. -Jillian Michaels

Being green means preventing waste. -Kevin Plank

I thought: 'It would be great to create a series of clothes that looked like that tree.' Clothes that gave you the green of the leaf and the warm brown of the underside of that leaf and the vanilla colored blossom. -Stanley Marcus

Every morning, I wake up and make the most nutrient-dense green smoothie I can. -Claire Holt

My favorite color is jungle green. At least, that's what it said on the side of my favorite crayon in first grade. I don't know if it's an official color. -Mike Posner

I'm committed to the goal of Senate Bill 324, and that is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. -Kate Brown

I'll bring colleges and industry together to develop new products in marine science, green technology, and medical devices, and to train our workers to fill those jobs… We need to get Rhode Islanders back to work. -Gina Raimondo

The Kitchen, which my wife and I opened with our friend and amazing chef Hugo Matheson, was quickly recognized as the pioneer in 'green' restaurants across the country. -Kimbal Musk

Young people, especially, are turning away from McDonald's towards healthy, locally-sourced options like Next Door and Sweetgreen. -Kimbal Musk

Many of Israel's Arabs, which see themselves as part of the Palestinian population, feel the pain of their brothers across the green line – a pain they feel the state of Israel is responsible for. -Reuven Rivlin

I miss my family and friends from Cali a lot. I also miss late-night business hours, hiking in the Sierra Nevada, and house boating in Gold Country. But in Ohio, housing is cheaper, everything is green year-round, and we get glorious thunderstorms. In California, I lived in a place that was infested with black widow spiders. -Rae Carson

The mornings along the coast where the fog and mist meet with the salty spray of the seas is one of my favourite smells. I love the smell in the evergreen forest just after it rains – The Redwood Forest in California has the coast, too, so you have the best of everything! -Paul Walker

There's no debate about the greenhouse effect, just like there's no debate about gravity. If someone throws a piano off the roof, I don't care what Sarah Palin tells you, get out of the way because it's coming down on your head. -Jimmy Kimmel

I don't spend money on the lavish life, but I spend on excessive green juices. -Riley Keough

When you're doing a film that has so many effects, you do a lot of it on green screen, and you can't see what that world is. -Eddie Redmayne

I see myself as no color. I can play the role of a man. I can paint my face white if I want to and play the role of white. I can play a green, I can be a purple. I think I have that kind of frame and that kind of attitude where I can play an animal. -Grace Jones

Macaroni and cheese was my mother's special dish. She'd also make jambalaya and dirty rice and bake a ham that would be incredible. And greens. But if you were looking for vegetables and healthy things, there weren't a lot of those. -Tyler Perry

I have facials, and I'll do microdermabrasion every now and then. But mostly, I eat right – you know, lots of greens – and I drink a lot of water. And I like to use a lot of natural stuff on my face. I don't like to over-product it. I actually wipe my makeup off with olive oil. -Evan Rachel Wood

When I was younger, I lived on Hawai'i, in the small town of Kohala. It was beautiful there! There were the trees and rolling green hills. It was beautiful and quaint, but at the same time, I always wanted to just venture out. -Auli'i Cravalho

It really annoys me when the light turns green, and you're behind somebody, and they're just sitting there looking at the light for about 15, 20 seconds. -Glenn Danzig

Critics who have said a safer shot here or there would undoubtedly have won me a few more tournaments are probably correct. Going for the green in two was who I was as a boy – and it's who I remain as a man. -Arnold Palmer

I was preppy, then suddenly switched around age 14. I asked my mother to go to this vintage store, and she let me buy a leopard swing coat, pink cigarette pants, and lime-green gloves. -Kate Spade

On some issues, Republicans and Democrats disagree so sharply that compromise is nearly impossible. Republicans are not going to support a cap-and-trade program to limit greenhouse gases, and Democrats won't support a 1,000-mile wall on the border with Mexico. -Cass Sunstein

I argued that until FBI director James Comey gives a green light to new visas, and not until we completely reform the vetting process for new foreign visitors, that the borders should be sealed. -Lawrence Kudlow

When the Nobel Peace Prize Committee designated me the recipient of the 1970 award for my contribution to the 'green revolution,' they were in effect, I believe, selecting an individual to symbolize the vital role of agriculture and food production in a world that is hungry, both for bread and for peace. -Norman Borlaug

I let the players use their abilities and what they're capable of doing. If they're capable of stealing bases, I'm going to give them the green light. I'm going to teach them to pick their spots and to get a base when they can get a base. -Ryne Sandberg

If you make a huge pot of soup, you can freeze part of it and eat off it for days. I love making green bean soup, and I'll throw in some cashews, almonds or tofu, and voila, I've got a soup that's loaded with protein and vegetables. -Anna Getty

I learned how to cook by making soups, so I was thinking of how to make the most eco-friendly and green way to make soup. Obviously, using water and vegetables from your garden is the most sustainable way. -Anna Getty

When you have these surprise breakout films that do well, that have good performances in them, it puts a lot of pressure on the Academy to recognize those projects, so it's more of a conversation about what is greenlit. -Mahershala Ali

If you take blue paint and yellow paint and you mix them, you get green paint. But if you take blue light and yellow light and mix them, you get white light. This is a shock to most people. -James Turrell

I remember myself, age five, sitting on a porch overlooking a very muddy road. The day was rainy. I was wearing rubber boots, yellow – no, not yellow, green – and for all I know, I'm still there. -Joseph Brodsky

I'm a big greens fan. I'm a big vegetable fan. I'm a big whole grains fan. And I exercise a lot. That's how I keep this petite dancer's figure. -Guy Fieri

Biology is greener and, at scale, should be incredibly cost-effective: The cost of goods sold should be little more than the sugar water needed to brew almost anything. -Ryan Bethencourt

I believe within five to 10 years most larger corporations will switch to greener industrial enzymes, not just for the environment but also for their bottom line. -Ryan Bethencourt

The global warming hysterics don't just offer opinions and beliefs about greenhouse gases and the like. These are people who speak as if they belong to a cult. -Mike Gallagher

If your manager is one that isn't engaged with your career development by offering frequent advice and guidance, it's time to look for greener pastures. -John Rampton

We recognize that greenhouse gas emissions are one of the factors affecting climate change. -Rex Tillerson

Nothing, not even an avocado pit, keeps guacamole green for too long once it's made. -Guy Fieri

I got a dog. I take him on hikes, and I go to yoga all the time and drink green juice – very cliche actress. -Alexandra Daddario

Don't forget to eat a lot of greens and fish oil pills. Those are two of the best things to keep your skin glowing. -Irina Shayk

I think, unfortunately, everything is becoming about comfort, you know? A comfortable way to tell a story. The comfortable way, so that the audience will never be lost. A comfortable way to produce a film with green screens or without a lot of physical effort or losing control because of the weather or physical locations. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

I have a lot of love for nature, trees, animals and greenery, and I feel that if I did not exist, there'd be no greenery on the face of the earth. -Rakul Preet Singh

When I was about 4, my mum had a lime-green Versace jacket with massive shoulder pads, and I remember thinking, 'Why does her head look so small? Why is she doing that to herself?' But she loved it! -Poppy Delevingne

There are a lot of times where, filming 'It Follows,' I'm fighting against a guy dressed in a green suit for special effects, and I'm just like, 'No. There's no way this is going to be pulled off.' -Maika Monroe

I'm a dual citizen in a way. I live in the States and have a green card, so my connection to British politics is almost nonexistent. -Rupert Friend

I do eat a lot of greens. I eat healthy, but I'm not a vegetarian. -Goldie Hawn

My house really is purple and yellow and hot pink and light green and orange. -Lisa Frank

I eat a light but sustaining dinner before the show: a bunch of greens and some non-gluten quinoa or rice. I'll have a snack at intermission. I'm trying so hard not to have meals after the show because it's so late, but sometimes I just want a big bowl of pasta. -Phillipa Soo

I had made up my mind to find a woman to share my life: one who would leave London altogether and go with me into the green country and be satisfied. -W. H. Davies

A big part of green tech will be organisms that eat waste. -Steve Jurvetson

I see music in colours. I love music that's black, pink, purple or red – but I hate music that's green, yellow or brown. -Charli XCX

I try to eat whatever I want. I don't like putting myself on a diet, but I try to eat organic, healthy, and lean with lots of green vegetables. -Elsa Hosk

I worked as a draftsman for the Department of Environmental Protection, and as a teacher, in N.Y.C.; at a big bank and a small ad agency, a tiny law firm and a few giant ones; as a cashier and a dishwasher; preparing deli sandwiches and stringing tennis racquets and pruning evergreens into conical Christmas-tree shapes. -Chris Pavone

If you're making a salad of any kind, cut the herbs, stems and all, and toss them into your mixed greens salad, a Romaine salad, iceberg, Bibb – it just adds a special touch. -Alex Guarnaschelli

I travel pretty frequently, but a few things that are routine are going for a run, getting my green tea in the morning, and checking email… well, all the time! -Payal Kadakia

March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. Don't feel bad if you did not know that. I didn't, either, until someone recently slapped a picture of a green ribbon and a message wishing me a 'Happy CP Awareness Month' on my Facebook page. I always thought March was Women's History Month. -Maysoon Zayid

It's true that I've driven through a number of red lights on occasion, but on the other hand, I've stopped at a lot of green ones but never gotten credit for it. -Glenn Gould

What we want to do is put a price on greenhouse gases. Because if they're more expensive, businesses will find a way to be more efficient or switch to solar or hydro or wind power. So that will reduce emissions. -Ramez Naam

You have to be able to generate usable energy without greenhouse gas emissions, and you have to be able to do it cheaply if you want people to choose that approach. That means new technologies. -Ramez Naam

Greer is Missouri's second-largest spring. It is a place of pounding, frothing waters and of greeny-cool moss-covered rock, a place of fern and cliffy splendor. -Sue Hubbell

Diets don't come into it. You need variety and to have a good source of greens, protein, and nutrition. It is about health rather than looking right. -Darcey Bussell

I don't want to only make the movies that studios will greenlight. -Ron Howard

Comic books and radio were my escape. I even remember 3-D comic books where you put on the red-and-green glasses and Mighty Mouse would punch you in the face. It was the literature of the day for kids my age who were too bored with listening to 'Peter and the Wolf' on the record player. -George A. Romero

The vibe of my wedding is kind of going to be ethereal. Simple and modern, in a way, but with a lot of greenery. So, eucalyptus, olive branches, moss, and candles – it's going to be very… I want it to feel very comfortable, but obviously sleek. -Sasha Pieterse

What I hope is less about what the greens will do but what people who don't consider themselves part of the green movement will do. -Naomi Klein

'Empire' was already given its green light. I was like, 'Alright, this makes perfect sense. They wouldn't be going this hard on me if I didn't have it.' So it was last minute when I learned, you know, it's a business decision. That was my fault. -Rotimi

When you're hanging there twenty feet off the ground, surrounded by green screen, and all you've got is the other actor and the wonderful Gavin Hood shouting instructions at you as to what's going on; it's a really unique experience. -Asa Butterfield

I had to get used to seeing Samantha Bee around. I had to get used to seeing Jon, like, getting a bagel, and to John Oliver, and all these people whom I had seen on TV. Colbert would sometimes drop by. I had to get used to being a part of this multiple-Emmy-winning machine and being this 22-year-old black girl who was really green. -Jessica Williams

We ended up realizing that's not an economical way to create creatures, putting people in green leotards and figuring it out later. You can maybe do that if you're making 'Avatar,' but we need to know what the creatures look like before we turn on the camera. -D. B. Weiss

I've been doing sci-fi for two years, and there is always something big going on. The stakes are always huge. You're fighting for your life, or you're dealing with personal stuff. It has really high stakes attached to it, and there are green screen and explosions. You're going out on these really cool locations. -Brian J. Smith

I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm having a girl! Baby weaves and green lipstick, here we come! -GloZell

If you help elect more gay people, that gives a green light to all who feel disenfranchised, a green light to move forward. It means hope to a nation that has given up, because if a gay person makes it, the doors are open to everyone. -Harvey Milk

As a California state legislator, I supported our cap-and-trade law to force polluters to pay for releasing harmful greenhouse gases to combat climate change. -Jimmy Gomez

In my career as a writer, I preferred to avoid current events: I wrote young adult novels and book reviews and lifestyle journalism about health and parenting and other such evergreens. -Laura Moser

The amazing thing about rotoscoping is that it's very malleable. Unlike green screen, where the computer subtracts out the background, rotoscoping is an additive technology in that you don't take anything away from the footage – you add layers on top of it. -Keith Maitland

My usual day: a green smoothie for breakfast – if I want to get fancy, it's eggs on arugula – fruit for a snack, a salad with protein for lunch, and fish and quinoa for dinner. -Cobie Smulders

I remember, when I started acting officially, I was unbelievably green. My first audition tapes were just horrendous. -Max Minghella

It was in Austin that I had the idea for 'Days of Heaven.' I found myself alone for a summer in the town I had left as a high school student. There were those green, undulating hills, and this very beautiful river, the Colorado. The place is inspired and inspiring. -Terrence Malick

I wanted to restore an ancient house in Kent, and that's what I did. It was a heap – this Tudor building with the beams painted lime green, so hideous. And I had this idea that I'd love the small village life, with the Range Rover and the dogs and baking cookies for the Y.W.C.A. But then it got so boring. -Christine McVie

India has been developing its green energy resources. -Piyush Goyal

Instead of the cashier and ticket-ripper of the movie theater, the block chain consists of thousands of computers that can process digital tickets, money, and many other fiduciary objects in digital form. Think of thousands of robots wearing green eye shades, all checking each other's accounting. -Nick Szabo

I'm not really a green juice kind of guy. I like feeling downtrodden and worthless when I walk around London and have someone click their tongue at me and tell me to speed up. -Fionn Whitehead

The bulk of the utility industry today believes that coal and nuclear are the only solutions we have. Nuclear is greener but has the other issues. Coal, they think, can be transformed into the so-called clean coal technologies. -Vinod Khosla

It's funny, because even though on a drama like 'Picket Fences' those long monologues would stress me out, doing special effects where there's a green screen and there's nobody there to to react to and you have to recite all this dialogue, it's so much more difficult. -Holly Marie Combs

Like Picasso, I go through blue periods, green periods, or grey periods. -Sonia Rykiel

I get this anxiety in cities and places like that. When you grow up in kind of a small town and when you grow up around a lot of green and trees and nature and that sort of thing, sometimes I think it's a little mentally disconcerting to be around this concrete. -Daniel Bryan

The painter I really thought I could learn from was Cezanne – some sort of resemblance to oranges and greens and browns of the dry season in St. Lucia. -Derek Walcott

For me, green is more about cycling than recycling. -Giles Deacon

Theater definitely prepared me for Cyborg in the best way possible. All of the green screen definitely takes me to my minimalist theater days. -Ray Fisher

Imagining things are there that are not really there, with the green screen, is very much like theatre, when you're looking at the fourth wall. -Ray Fisher

I'm sure all actors have trouble. The guy who always plays the funny guy, he wants to be taken seriously. And there's the action guy who wants to do serious stuff. Everyone's grass is greener. -Jason Momoa

My songs lie somewhere in between the evergreen standards, rock n' roll and pop. -Neil Sedaka

I was just 18 years old, excited about being drafted to the N.B.A. I felt like all of Houston was watching me. My high school was watching me. I think they had a draft party at my coach's house. I'll never forget that day, being in the green room with my family and my agent. -Rashard Lewis

I've been criticized my whole career. When I got drafted in the second round in the green room, they said I wouldn't even make it in the N.B.A. -Rashard Lewis

Bochy is my guy. He raised me in the game; I was 20-years-old and as green as any grapes as you've ever seen on a vine. He took care of me, taught me how to be a professional, and taught me how to get my work done. -Jake Peavy

One of the successes of Kickstarter is that it takes the guesswork out of greenlighting games. Publishers of larger games have to carefully choose which titles they publish, lest they lose a bunch of money on a quirky game that doesn't sell. Kickstarter is all reward, no risk, since nobody has to pay if the project isn't completely funded. -Jason Schreier

I like green juices in the morning, made from things such as kale, and cucumber and peppers; then in the afternoon, when the blood sugar goes down, I'll make a carrot, apple, and ginger juice. -Trudie Styler

The Academy just reflects Hollywood. And until we break those barriers, until we have African-American or minority studio executives, 'til we have people who are greenlighting movies with African-American actors – the Academy is not going to change until Hollywood changes, so we have to start with Hollywood. -Roger Ross Williams

It's rare to get a part in a show that's greenlit, let alone two shows that have been greenlit. -Krysten Ritter

I have always loved fashion, trends, style, make-up and hair, but yes, some sort of a transformation truly happens when I play a 'bahu'. That's when I have to wear brown lenses to cover my green eyes, colour my hair dark, wear saris, and surprise myself that I can pull this off, too. -Krystle D'Souza

My favourite Korean food is delicious black five-layered pork belly, cooked over a charcoal grill. And Jeju chocolate, in citrus fruits and green tea flavour, which is famous throughout Korea. -Lee Hyeon-seo

I prepare my style of biriyani by sauting sliced onion, tomato, green chilli, ginger garlic and add required water and rice. If I end up adding a tad too much of salt, I used to add curd to balance it. -Vijay Sethupathi

As someone who lives with adult-onset asthma, I know how bad air quality in the capital has become. I want to be the greenest mayor London has ever had – it is not acceptable that 10,000 people die in London every year because our air is so filthy. -Sadiq Khan

If you give an actor a green screen, the shot may work, but that green screen will not inspire you on the set as a director or as an actor. -Guillermo del Toro

I wrote a screenplay for 'The Witches,' which Alfonso Cuaron was producing, but we couldn't get it made! The studio just wouldn't greenlight that movie. It's my favorite Roald Dahl book, 'The Witches,' because I grew up with my grandmother a lot of the time, and the relationship between the boy and the grandmother speaks volumes to me. -Guillermo del Toro

I hope I'm always appropriate on 'JR' if it's a serious case. But if you have a case of a man who has a wardrobe malfunction with a lime green mankini, even I on the odd occasion find it mildly amusing. -Robert Rinder

A lot of actors will complain about the green screen work, but what you do get to do is what you probably should have learned, from the beginning, on stage. You have to create it in your mind and really go there to bring it. Part of the fun of acting is those challenges. You feel goofy, but sometimes that's a good feeling. -Wes Bentley

I have a glass of alkaline water first thing. I don't have the biggest appetite in the morning, which is kind of tough for me, but I always start with a green drink called Tonic Alchemy. It's a really amazing combination drink that has a lot of different superfoods and algae and Chinese herbs. -Jamie Anderson

I would still describe myself as a hacker. I still remember feeling the magic, the sense of discovery, when I first connected to a bulletin board. It seemed like the world was somehow brighter, the greens were greener. Like I'd stepped through a portal to the other side. I knew back then that things would never be the same again for me. -Harper Reed

I don't drink coffee; I drink a lot of green tea and water. -Harper Reed

America is home to the best researchers, advanced manufacturers, and entrepreneurs in the world. There is no reason we cannot lead the planet in manufacturing solar panels and wind turbines, engineering the smart energy grid, and inspiring the next great companies that will be the titans of a new green energy economy. -Brad Schneider

I think there's a difference between somebody who grows up in Paris or London and goes to Los Angeles. But if you grow up in the green fields, and you rarely go into the city, you're so overprotected that when you do go to L.A., it's almost a bigger slap in the head. -Dolores O'Riordan

To effect meaningful change, you have to look at who's in the boardrooms, who has the financial control of businesses, and who has the greenlighting power. -Nancy Dubuc

I didn't know anything about acting at all. I was completely green. I got into it to meet people, to try and figure out what I wanted to do. -Courtney B. Vance

Under the Paris agreement, every one of the 147 signatories issues what is called an 'intended nationally determined contribution' (INDC), which amounts to a promise that the nation will take certain actions to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by a certain date. -Charles C. Mann

There are several types of greenhouse gasses, but carbon dioxide is the most important. -Charles C. Mann

The Paris pact was correctly described by its opponents – greens and anti-greens alike – as toothless. But it was also the first time that nations around the world had officially agreed that climate change was a problem and that concrete steps should be taken to avoid its worst effects. -Charles C. Mann

At one point, I was greenlighting films and scripts that shouldn't have been made based on the fact that they had that stamp of approval of an Academy Award winner. And the good news is I got to learn the real process of filmmaking – directing, storyboarding, writing. -Cuba Gooding, Jr.

There's a lack of diversity amongst executives in the position of greenlighting a film who feel that their stories are being told. If there's a diversity at the executive level, then we'll have diversity of the storytelling process. -Cuba Gooding, Jr.

Ireland was an idyllic place for us as children. We had all these cousins and all this green countryside. Given what I've written about rural Ireland, my memories of it are all blue skies and endless play. -Martin McDonagh

In our view, the main role of the government in the green transition is to ensure a predictable framework and a level playing field for innovation, industry, and enterprise. And, most importantly, to provide clear direction. -Erna Solberg

Doris Roberts had an energy and a spirit that amazed me. She never stopped. Whether working professionally or with her many charities or just nurturing and mentoring a green young comic trying to make it as an actor, she did everything with such a grand love for life and people, and I will miss her dearly. -Ray Romano

On 'Game of Thrones,' we always shoot away from the green screen because it's bloody expensive to shoot green screen. -Alan Taylor

Illinois is becoming more diverse, more tolerant, and even more green. -Raja Krishnamoorthi

So many of our businesses rely on green card holders – how are we supposed to attract these people if they think they'll be detained at the airport if they go abroad for a wedding or just to show their baby to relatives? -Raja Krishnamoorthi

Step one of the initial process of getting a non-immigrant visa is tough, renewing it is tough, and then transferring from the status of non-immigrant to immigrant or green card is tough. The only process which is easy is the last part of transferring from green card to citizenship, but getting there is quite a journey. -Raja Krishnamoorthi

Reducing and removing greenhouse gas emissions spares our planet from the well-documented degradation that we are witnessing on a global basis. -Dick Durbin

Greenville, S.C., in the 1970s is a rolling green dream in my memory now. -Jacqueline Woodson

People complain about Hollywood movies being similar. That goes right down to the fundamental green light process, because the process involves having to compare it to three other movies. -Jason Blum

I went to Salford Tech. They did a two-year performing arts course. I went there singing and dancing – I had a terrible time. I turned up in green dungarees and German power boots. I was into prog rock at the time – Gong and Hawkwind – and I was clumping around. -Maxine Peake

I'm not very proud of coming from a place that everyone thinks is this pure green country whereas, in reality, all our lakes and waterways are poison. -Taika Waititi

At Participant, I am the board. I am the sole greenlight at the company. If something happened to me, that would be a problem. -Jeffrey Skoll

The world tells lots of people the light is red. You have to trust yourself and say, 'I think the light is green, and I'm going to keep doing this.' -Tamara Taylor

Many African smallholder farmers did not share in the 'green revolution' productivity gains driven by modern seeds and techniques, irrigation, and greater fertilizer use in Asia and Latin America in the 1960s. -Arancha Gonzalez

The tourism industry has considerable potential to be a sustainability role model in its role as a buyer of goods and other services, from building materials and green construction standards to farm produce. -Arancha Gonzalez

Most of the energy consumed is for heating, cooling, and transport. By massively deploying green gas, we could decarbonize all that. -Isabelle Kocher

We will progressively make our gas greener so that by 2050 it can be 100 percent green. -Isabelle Kocher

I have my own personal masticating juicer at home. I sort of picked it up from friends a few years ago, and it just gives me more energy. Mostly green juice. Spinach, celery, kale, green apples, lemon, sometimes ginger – you know, like, nasty, euuugghhhh! -Chadwick Boseman

Sam Cooke was a gospel singer like myself, and when he crossed over and started singing rock n' roll, it kind of gave me the green light to go ahead and do it. -Dennis Edwards

We need investment in green economy infrastructure; public services, training and education; and a multilateral plan to create youth job opportunities. -Sharan Burrow

The concept of 'green jobs' or a 'green economy' is often attacked as the work of the Grimm Brothers by those wedded to the grim science of free-market economics. -Sharan Burrow

Programs that reduce energy and water use and increase green agriculture and transport have huge job-creating potential. -Sharan Burrow

I love green juices. -Doutzen Kroes

Managing forests, rivers, grasslands, and coral reefs in sustainable ways makes them more resilient and increases their ability to absorb greenhouse gases, which is good for business. -Johan Rockstrom

Emissions of greenhouse gases warm the planet, altering the carbon and water cycles. A warmer ocean stores more heat, providing more fuel for hurricanes. A warmer atmosphere holds more water, bringing dangerous deluges. Rising sea levels threaten coastal zones. -Johan Rockstrom

I was a loudmouth rock star when I was still in college. Purple hair this week, green hair next week, blond hair the week after. I was doing that fashion before it was really cool. -Pepa

Our planet's greener future depends on nurturing our natural and abundant renewable resources. -Tulsi Tanti

Most times, Mother Earth's resources are used up without the realisation that these thoughtless actions might just be the root cause for the hardships future generations may face. It is everyone's responsibility to hand over a green, clean, and healthy environment to them. -Tulsi Tanti

Replacing traditional sources of energy completely with renewable energy is going to be a challenging task. However, by adding renewable energy to the grid and gradually increasing its contribution, we can realistically expect a future that is powered completely by green energy. -Tulsi Tanti

It is through technological innovation and the pursuit of sustainable social, economic, and ecological development that we can chart the country's path to progress and power a greener tomorrow. -Tulsi Tanti

Driven by the vision to power a greener tomorrow, Suzlon has leveraged its focus on technology to accelerate action against climate change. -Tulsi Tanti

Yes, green business is good business. But it's not just about making money. It's about being responsible. -Tulsi Tanti

Our country needs power for its economic growth, and clean, green power is the best option. -Tulsi Tanti

We drive our business as a cause, one where we power a greener tomorrow. -Tulsi Tanti

Most businesses do not take governments seriously when it comes to climate, primarily because many governments have inconsistent and incoherent policies and then often keep changing them, sometimes retroactively. This makes businesses reluctant to invest in greener technologies. -Jose Angel Gurria

Reforms to product and labour markets, education, innovation, green growth, competition, taxes, health – they are the things that should be the object of our primary focus in the context of a long-term strategy to restore sustained growth. -Jose Angel Gurria

When you live in Manchester and it's raining every day, you've got to imagine the sun sometimes. When you're brought up in concrete, you aim for the green leaves. And when you get to the green leaves, you yearn again for concrete. -Ian Brown

In the past, action to combat climate change was viewed largely as running counter to economic growth, with 'going green' implying a sacrifice of prosperity for the sake of the environment. Today, we know better. -Guy Ryder

Most people don't know that the biggest regret that I have – and it's a biggie – is not fighting harder for policy and very practical measures to support the development of the green jobs industry. -Majora Carter

I try to get a well-balanced diet with a mix of greens, protein, and carbs. -Hilary Knight

In sixth grade, my status as a Boy Scout was not something I went out of my way to share. In fact, I spent most of my adolescence attempting to keep it a secret from those who might use it as a source of derision. The off-brown collared shirt and forest-green sash were not something I would have ever been caught wearing in front of my friends. -Clint Smith

In a way, Captain America is the most grounded of the main Marvel superheroes. He is basically just a man, only more so. He doesn't fly across the sky like Iron Man. He isn't from another world like Thor. He doesn't turn into a green monster. -Anthony Russo

Lunch, for me, usually consists of lots of salad and sometimes smoked or grilled salmon, tofu, or feta cheese. I make sure to add a lot of greens to my salad. I accompany this with some dal. -Sridevi

I had not seen lawns till fifth grade – big green lawns. -Luis Alberto Urrea

A lot of our family was undocumented. My mom and dad were both super conservative. My dad had a green card; my mom was an Eisenhower Republican who did not approve of all the 'illegal people.' -Luis Alberto Urrea

I came to believe the green fuse that drives spring and summer through the world is essentially a literary energy. That the world was more than a place. Life was more than an event. It was all one thing – and that thing was story. -Luis Alberto Urrea

I start every morning off with a green juice, because I think it's really important to be alkalined, and then I work out. We teach people that you need to find that balance and that what you put into your body is directly affecting your health. -Yael Cohen

In the racialized space of capitalist gentrification, police are not only arbiters of the peace, they are the muscle of retail racism: You can only be in this space if you transcend your blackness by showing us some green dollars. Even then, there is no guarantee that green will transcend your black skin. -Anthea Butler

We proposed Tiananmen Square – this very empty political square in the city centre – should turn green. Maybe in the future, this space could become a very human and open urban space. And if that happens, I think that all the cities around China will follow to change. -Ma Yansong

I don't like to talk about sustainability, because sometimes I see green buildings that don't appear any different from those in the past. -Ma Yansong

Hollywood is a world where the only thing that gets green-lit is something that made money the last year. -Justin Simien

Just in the last week of his life, you could have seen him at Walgreens or at the Electric Fetus, where he often shopped for records – an astonishing sight, like the Mona Lisa taking in her own portrait at the Louvre. Prince, paradoxically, was reclusive but always around. -Steve Rushin

I appreciate and love blue-green algae. -Vaclav Smil

I haven't really got a green thumb, but I love gardens and their architecture. -Hubert de Givenchy

I have a green juice every day because it makes me feel more awake; it makes my skin healthier. -Philomena Kwao

It's easy to stereotype twins into any role. There's not a lot of great twin roles written, and oftentimes, when there are, they're given to a single actor who green screens themselves into both places. -Dylan Sprouse

I don't eat steak often, maybe once a month. But when I do, it really hits the spot. When you're done with your steak and your mashed potatoes and your green beans, you really know you've had dinner. -Michael McKean

The deadnettle is the Punxsutawney Phil of the plant world: short of stature but stout of heart. At the first hint of winter's wane, its stem rises from the ground, and a green, grasping hand of sepals unclenches to divulge two silky-white petals, one of which unfurls straight up toward the sky. -Hope Jahren

In New England, the pin oak thrives, its leaves tipping to a thorny point in a good-natured impression of its evergreen neighbor, the holly bush. -Hope Jahren

The live oak can grow sturdily on the hottest hills of central California, contrasting dark green against the golden grass. -Hope Jahren

I think we get used to not seeing the green things around us. I think they become the backdrop of our lives. And I think you actively have to ask somebody to request that they put that in the foreground. -Hope Jahren

The character we've always thought of as the Wicked Witch of the West is a green girl who's actually very good, misunderstood, and trying to make her way in the world. She's an outsider looking in, wanting to be loved. That's a universal experience that everyone's felt at some point in their lives. -Marc Platt

The film you know as 'Super Troopers' is a film that almost didn't happen. The script was originally commissioned and developed by Miramax, but when it failed to get a green light, Harvey Weinstein was kind enough to give it back to us so we could make it elsewhere. -Jay Chandrasekhar

When I pick my greens, right, I smile. I smile when I pick the greens, and when I wash the greens, I smile. Then when I cut them up, I smile. And then when I cook them, I smile. They call it joyful greens. -Tiffany Haddish

Agriculture is one of the biggest causes of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Cars? Planes? Trains? Nope. Cow farts. -Zazie Beetz

When I was a kid, my mother used to drive my father to work in Indianapolis, and I would see, practically every day of my young life, a huge Phillips 66 sign. So it is the red and green of that sign against the blue Hoosier sky. The blue in the 'Love' is cerulean. Therefore, my 'Love' is an homage to my father. -Robert Indiana

I remember the first time I played on a synthetic turf field. I thought, 'Wow, this is amazing. What is this stuff?' It seemed so much better than that concrete-like Astro Turf that was essentially just a green, thin carpet over hard ground. -Julie Foudy

It's funny: being green to me was ingrained because my parents were always trying to save money, save water, turn off the lights, or arrange a carpool. I don't think my parents even know what it means to be green, but they were. -Su-chin Pak

Some of the most green people in our lives are our parents and grandparents, who always bought locally and carefully. I remember my grandmother would buy a jar of cream and make it last for a long time. To me, that is just as green as something with an expensive, eco-savvy label on it. -Su-chin Pak

I really enjoyed shooting in Ireland. The people are so lovely. I hope I don't offend anyone in saying this, but the nature reminded me of Americans: everyone was warm and open and easy to talk to. And Ireland is so beautiful and lusciously green. -Maya Hawke

When 'Vida' got the green light, Starz sent me this picnic basket of Jamie Fraser red wine and all these 'Outlander' things that I'll never open because it's like my sacred thing. -Tanya Saracho

Adding chlorella and chlorophyll to your smoothie gives you the benefits of leafy greens in their most raw form. -Hannah Bronfman

I have green eyes, which are actually quite difficult to find makeup for. -Joanna Coles

EPA will set a national standard for greenhouse gas emissions that allows auto manufacturers to make cars that people both want and can afford – while still expanding environmental and safety benefits of newer cars. -Scott Pruitt

Burning fossil fuels emits carbon dioxide. And carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that traps heat in the atmosphere. There is no debate about that. The link is as certain as the link between smoking and cancer. -Christine Todd Whitman

Neglecting clean energy sources such as solar, wind, and especially nuclear, can result in blackouts, increased power bills, and will take a heavy toll on our efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. -Christine Todd Whitman

My copy of 'Night' is dog-eared. The pages are filled with plastic colored 'flags' that are blue, green, purple, and yellow. Vocabulary is in the margins; phrases and sentences are underlined, some with pencil, and some with pen. Many words are circled. -Clemantine Wamariya

I owe a lot to Darren Perry. I don't think I'd be this far this early if it wasn't for him pushing me to run an extra second or showing me a play on film and telling me when I see it, that's the green light to go do it and don't be afraid to take that next step and take chances. That's what the game is about. -Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

It's one thing to be groped and harassed by passers-by, but when the state gropes you, it gives a green light that you are fair game. -Mona Eltahawy

I was so green, and my background was mostly in theater. The only thing I'd done in front of a camera, besides an infomercial and one commercial, was 'Brothers McMullen.' -Connie Britton

I usually wake up around 9, and the first thing I do is make myself a cup of tea. I drink a lot of tea – green tea, white tea, and all kinds of herbal teas. -Andreja Pejic

I wear weird-colored toenail polish – like blue, green, or yellow. If it's strange-looking, I will wear it. -Vanna White

Humanity does not come with citizenship or a green card. -Joe Kennedy III
