My room is like an antique shop, full of junk, and weird stuff. There's a big sword in there. And a taxidermy bird, and a couple of birdcages. And a lot of newspaper cuttings.

As a direct line to human feeling, empathic experience, genuine language and detail, poetry is everything that headline news is not.

'Boldly going where hundreds have gone before' does not make headlines. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

In this age of 24-7 headlines, the term 'newsweekly' seems almost quaint. -Graydon Carter

Some writers like to boil down headlines of liberal newspapers into fiction, so they say there shouldn't be communal riots, everybody should love each other, there shouldn't be boundaries or fundamentalism.

The worst headline is one that contains a factual error. Bad headlines are ones that are bland, and don't tell the reader anything specific, like 'Democrats at it Again.' -Jennifer Lee

In my first year, when I was driving in runs, winning games and making headlines, there was an old man who came to games at Seals Stadium, and one day he called me over, introduced himself and told me not to believe anything written about me or think too much of all the accolades. -Willie McCovey

As soon as I accomplish one goal, I replace it with another one. I try not to get too far ahead of myself. I just say to myself, 'All right, well, I'd like to headline a tour,' and then when I get there, we'll see what my next goal is. -Taylor Swift

When I got married, the Sun ran the headline: 'Here comes the bride, all fat and wide.' Luckily, it was a few days after the wedding – but it was still hideous to read at a great romantic moment. -Jo Brand

The media thinks that only the cutting edge of science, the very latest controversies, are worth reporting on.

The newspapers of the twenty-first century will give a mere 'stick' in the back pages to accounts of crime or political controversies, but will headline on the front pages the proclamation of a new scientific hypothesis. -Nikola Tesla

Joe Biden is that special combination of someone who is very talented and influential, but when he starts speaking, there's inevitably going to be headlines written about something he said. -Armando Iannucci

Whenever you're the leader in any industry, you get more headlines. -Chad Hurley

A newspaperman said, 'You have to have a team in New York.' I replied, 'Who says you have to have a team in New York?'

It was repeated again and again. -Warren Giles

Grassroots techies – the mostly unknown people who write code and start companies that don't make the headlines – hate, loathe, and despise Microsoft. At technology conferences, it is the devil, or the guaranteed laugh line. Its products are mocked, its business practices booed. -Virginia Postrel

Ironically, it is only when disaster strikes that the shuttle makes the headlines. Its routine flights attracted less media interest than unmanned probes to the planets or the images from the Hubble Telescope.

Most interviewers are looking for a headline. They're not skilled. They're looking for shock value. -Ice T

There's been times where I sold the place out, and I walked in and the guy's like, 'Uh, ID?' 'No, you can't ID me, man. I just sold this place out.' People are just doing their jobs, but I think if you're working the door at a venue where there's a headliner, you should at least be like, 'OK, this is the dude.' -Hannibal Buress

I'm smart enough to know, 'Don't try and make any headlines.' -Keyshawn Johnson

An overall trend of political moderation in Latin America makes for far less interesting headlines, but it also makes for far better lives for our people. -Óscar Arias

These days, headlines are trying to get you to click. -Jason Calacanis

I remember a picture on the front page of the 'Sun' during the Brixton riots: a rasta guy with a petrol bomb, and a headline saying something like: 'The Future of Britain.' And I thought: 'Wow! Look at the power of that image,' and I wanted to get behind the camera to make these people three-dimensional. -Gurinder Chadha

I think many times news organizations, whether it's for lack of resources or something else, cover the headlines and don't follow up, even though the story continues for the people living there – they can't leave. I think it's critical that they do these follow-up stories to realize that there is still suffering, and the need is dire. -Carol Guzy

The condition of rage is one in which I find myself starting my day – once I see the news headlines. -Val McDermid

I follow a lot of news outlets on Twitter, so I'll just go skim through the headlines and see what's going on. -Michael Che

If I were to win the Nobel Prize in Literature – which I think it's fairly safe to say is not going to happen – I would still expect the headline on my obituary to read: 'Christopher Buckley, son of William F. Buckley, Jr., is dead at 78.' -Christopher Buckley

I want to headline Bonnaroo. I just want to do it more than anything in the world. -Mike Posner

I think people are so immersed in the anti-Scientology mindset by consuming tabloid media and stories about space aliens. It's baffling. When I say I want to see a more positive side of the church, all I'm saying is I want to get past these headlines that talk about aliens and Tom Cruise jumping on a sofa. -Louis Theroux

It is a big responsibility to headline on pay-per-view. -Canelo Alvarez

I believe with a lot of support shows, people are very much there to see the headliner. You don't necessarily have their full attention, and some of what we do requires a lot of silence. -Oliver Sim

I think it's too easy often to find a villain out of the headlines and to then repeat that villainy again and again and again. You know, traditionally, America has always looked to scapegoat someone as the boogie man… there is a tradition in the most simplistic of action movies for there to be some horrible villain. -Edward Zwick

When people write about me, they usually start off with the headline 'World's Greatest Con Man.' -Frank Abagnale

Invariably, when people read the headline about Martin Shkreli, they hate Martin Shkreli. When they get to know Martin Shkreli, they love Martin Shkreli. -Martin Shkreli

Some Sundays, I read it quickly – other Sundays, I savor it. I generally spend most of my time in 'The New York Times Book Review,' 'Sunday Business,' 'Sunday Review,' and 'The New York Times Magazine.' I turn all the other pages, only stopping when I find a headline that interests me. -Brad Feld

I had fallen in love with photography and was making a living doing photographic features for publications such as 'Picture Post,' 'Paris Match' and 'Life' magazine. But in 1939, I saw a huge headline, which I think was in the 'Sunday Express.' It said, 'Danzig – Danger Point of Europe.' I packed up my Leica, got on a train, and went. -Douglas Slocombe

The city – as the theater of experience, the refuge, the hiding place – has, in turn, been replaced by an abstraction, the fast lane. In the fast lane, the passive observer reduces everything – streets, people, rock lyrics, headlines – to landscape. Every night holds magical promises of renewal. But burnout is inevitable, like some law of physics. -Darryl Pinckney

The frustrating part of being an artist is that I can do a whole interview, and all most people are going to see is the headlines. As artists, we should be able to write our own headlines. -Tyga

That's the misconceptions that people have, that Chuck Berry went to jail. They're just totally wrong. It might have said something in the large papers in the bigger city headlines and things. But, you take a look at any of the local papers, and you will see that I was acquitted. I never went to jail. -Chuck Berry

When my alarm goes off between 6 to 6:30 A.M, the first thing I do is reach for my phone. I look at Twitter to see the headlines. It's become my news aggregator. Then I check my Instagram. -Eva Chen

While headlines are being generated about the Democrat mindset of nationalizing private businesses and bailing out failed ventures, we seem to be ignoring one of the most massive bail-outs ever: the taxpayer-funded process of transitioning people from analog to digital television. -Mike Gallagher

Because food and energy prices are volatile, it is often helpful to look at inflation excluding those two categories – known as core inflation – which is typically a better indicator of future overall inflation than recent readings of headline inflation. -Janet Yellen

Victims and survivors deserve more than a person seeking a headline. -Tamron Hall

I get the headlines for being slick and different things like that – which is part of my game – but it's just amazing to me that a lot of times, the people don't see the other things that go on in that ring. But a lot of times, when my opponents figure it out, the fight is over. It's too late. -Andre Ward

My time with the WEC was great for me; it was great to be able to get big-show experience, headline fight-cards, and fight for world titles. -Donald Cerrone

Sometimes the media twists your words, and they say things to get a headline, and it's not necessarily what came out of your mouth, and they take things out of context 90 percent of the time. But I guess – any publicity is good publicity, I guess. -Paige VanZant

At the time when I was in college, Oscar Grant had just lost his life in Oakland, Calif. He was an unarmed young black male who had a record. And at the time when his death was making headlines, more people were talking about what he had done in his past than the fact that he unjustly lost his life. -Angie Thomas

I don't want to be the person who has the gigantic headlines: 'Look Who So-and-So Is Dating Now.' That, to me, isn't really who I am. -Chris Young

Most of the people at my headline shows are in their 20s, but it varies a ton: like, I've had a six-year-old hug my leg after the show and a 60-year-old shake my hand. It's cool to see people connecting with the music across different generations. -K. Flay

What a newspaper needs in its news, in its headlines, and on its editorial page is terseness, humor, descriptive power, satire, originality, good literary style, clever condensation, and accuracy, accuracy, accuracy! -Joseph Pulitzer

We've gotten to play shows where I'm the headliner, so people are buying tickets to come see me, and that's when you really learn, 'Okay, who's listening to this music?' That and social media. But I couldn't feel luckier about the fan base that is starting to grow… People have just been super, super supportive and awesome. -Brett Young

Being able to be one of the headline bands on Warped Tour was a dream I had since I was in middle school. -Andy Biersack

I don't care what the headline is. I want the results. -Bruce Rauner

There are really four 'headlines' for me: honesty, integrity, hard work, and what I call a 'can-do' attitude. You could call that 'can-do' attitude optimism, but it is not Pollyannaish optimism. Rather, it is a 'we'll figure it out' type of mentality. -Dylan Taylor

If who you were was entirely based upon the position you were in or the headlines you got in the newspaper, or you had essentially subcontracted out your self-worth to the judgments of others, then you're going to be like tumbleweed. You're going to be blown. -Stanley A. McChrystal

Every day, there's something that makes you go, 'Is this Funny or Die?' That can't be a real headline. -Eric McCormack

There is so much going on in our country and in the world today… We're getting the headlines for a second, shaped by corporate delivery most of the time, but what's really the story there? Well, I'm turned on by that kind of stuff. -Jonathan Demme

No one watches 'Taxi Driver' and says, 'Oh, it's a male-oriented film.' No one looks at nine-tenths of the films out there that are headlined by men and say, 'It's a male-oriented film.' -Gillian Flynn

You open up a lot of tours making nothing just for the fact that you need to start somewhere and get some exposure. When you start to headline your tours, all the money is in headlining, but there's no money in headlining small rooms. -G-Eazy

It is often pointed out to me that, in a brief time, I have gone from unknown film editor to star of 'Gomer Pyle,' guest star in two TV specials, and a night club headliner, and that this must necessarily have wrought some deep changes in me. -Jim Nabors

It was a big deal for us to be on Ozzfest, especially as one of the main headliners and being the band that wasn't announced: the mystery band. We'd never played the second stage at Ozzfest, and all of a sudden we're on the main stage. -Zacky Vengeance

Every time Trump goes golfing, the headline should read, 'Trump Goes Golfing. Apocalypse Delayed.' -Hasan Minhaj

On 'The Daily Show,' we get so caught up in the day-to-day news cycle. A story breaks, and then the piranhas in late night, we all jump to the headline, and we dissect it, and then we have to move on to the next day. -Hasan Minhaj

'Fences' is under the headline of the project of my lifetime. It is the most perfect and undeniably developed narrative that I've ever worked on. -Viola Davis

When I see a headline 'Guess who's going out with who?' I don't guess, and I don't click. -Ricky Gervais

I've seen the Stones play for three hours, and the crowd knew every song. It's what you want in a headline slot at a festival. -Winston Marshall

A good headline is far more than a summary. It has to characterize, in a few brief words, the most important themes and news items of the article it accompanies. -Parker Conrad

I don't like to get too caught up in habits because too much structure can stifle creativity. But there are a few habits that make us more productive and are healthy to work into every workweek, if not every day. I love to start the day with a workout – even just a run on the treadmill while catching up on the morning headlines. -Dinesh Paliwal

Every time you achieve something, you want to go after what's next. I'd like to see my own shows grow and someday be a headliner, fill up stadiums. -Dua Lipa

Models can be people, too. But the only way to do that is to kind of step up and keep doing new things that no one has thought of, from new websites to new blogs, a newscast, doing speeches, talking to kids. It kind of opens a new headline every time: 'Oh, a model hasn't done this before; a model hasn't done that before.' -Coco Rocha

Telling a story about someone has enormous power. People forget a headline. They remember a story. -Michelle Dean

RT was one of the first channels to cover the Wikileaks story and to interview Julian Assange a long time ago, way before it made headlines around the globe. -Margarita Simonyan

I keep seeing the headline on articles that says something like 'Mary Gauthier Helping Our Veterans.' It's troubling – and it's condescending. Whatever I'm doing as a songwriter to help them tell their stories, they're giving it back to me double, triple, quadruple. -Mary Gauthier

Many times, disagreements between the two political parties in Washington get all the headlines. What's not reported is the fact that Republicans and Democrats agree on where we want to go, but we disagree on how we're going to get there. -Richard Burr

I've had the acting bug since I was, like, five. But growing up, I saw how people treated me differently when they knew who my father was, even the stuff I did on the field. Sometimes I'd rush for 100 yards, and the headline would be, 'Denzel's son runs for 100 yards.' That's where the suppression of that bug came from. -John David Washington

Obviously, everyone wants to headline 'WrestleMania.' -Finn Balor

American prejudices about Europe rarely surface in headlines, but they are real, pervasive, and ingrained. -Linda Colley

When it comes to vampires, Daniel Gillies's Elijah is the cream of the crop. Since leaving 'The Vampire Diaries' to headline 'The Originals,' we've seen the brother of Klaus grow from the altruistic, steadfast, suit-wearing stud into a complicated, nuanced lead. -Rebecca Serle

If I get annoyed because I'm not in the headlines and don't do well in training, I won't do well if I have to go in. I've to be prepared because the World Cup isn't easy. -Paulo Dybala

I was not aware of a ton of the stuff that was being said about me out in the world since I wasn't able to get British or American headlines from my prison cell in Perugia. But I was aware that in the courtroom, I was being called a succubus, a man-eater, 'Foxy Knoxy.' -Amanda Knox

There are media houses which put headline with a question mark, and that is how they can get away without taking the accountability of the allegation. They put the question mark. Let's analyze it a little – a common reader will not remember the question mark: they will remember the allegation. -Vicky Kaushal

The truth is that the gossip-hounds in Tinsel Town and the cackling windbags at 'The View' don't want civility. They want catty (or dare I say it gay-ish) gossip and sensational headlines that provide them with an opportunity to hop on the bully pulpit. -Steven Crowder

Before 'Sunny' came along, I would audition and do chemistry reads with very funny actors. And then they would cast someone who was beautiful and benign. I don't think that very funny men wanted to headline with very funny women. They wanted to be the funny ones, and they wanted the wife to be the wife. That was very frustrating. -Kaitlin Olson

People love talking about how much an actor makes. A lot of headline space is dedicated to this. -Tamannaah

It's when I'm playing a headline show I feel weird, 'cause I don't know how to react to people coming out to see me. -Lewis Capaldi

Demian Maia, he's a legend. He's a veteran in the game. He knows how to fight. He's been through so many five-round fights. He's headlined a lot of cards, fought Anderson Silva for the title, fought Tyron Woodley for the title. He's a veteran, he knows how to fight, and he's always training. He's a jiu-jitsu wizard. -Kamaru Usman

You don't have to be outlandish and saying crazy things and get out of yourself to get headlines or attention. -Kamaru Usman

The amount of players who get into trouble in the NFL is a very small minority, but they are the ones who make the headlines. -Pat McAfee

There is no doubt that dissents can serve a useful role by explaining when a justice thinks the majority has gone off the deep end.

If you're a wrestler in the WWE, then your goal is to be the headliner, main event of WrestleMania. -Matt Riddle
