Because of the wonderfully positive response to 'Life's That Way,' I am considering writing some more autobiographical stuff – maybe another book. I don't know. It doesn't help that I'm lazy. -Jim Beaver

I like to act. I guess letting what you love be what you do is key. I've worked very hard for that to be the case, probably because I'm very lazy and I only want to do things that are fun and I run away from anything that feels like work… Acting for me is like lunch at school… you're just in a playground where you get to pretend and play. -Dichen Lachman

In America, we're kind of lazy. But in New York, it's one of those places where you see the majority of people hustling. If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. -Kid Cudi

My advice to new actors is: Don't be lazy. Go after what you desire. Don't heed the commonplace advice that is meant to discourage you. If you want it, go and get it. Be willing to work hard, and be patient. Be kind to yourself. -Judith Hoag

Refuse to be a lazy Christian, and resist a passive, apathetic attitude. -Joyce Meyer

The flesh, or human nature, is generally lazy and self-centered. -Joyce Meyer

I'm not that lazy, but I don't need that much money. I lead a fairly simple life. -Karl Pilkington

My husband is the chef of the family; he's a brilliant cook. Actually, it makes you quite lazy when you have somebody that's so good at cooking under the same roof. It's all beans or spaghetti when I'm left to run it. -Keeley Hawes

I didn't want to chase movies. It's too hard. You've got to work at it – opening nights, photo shoots, publicity people, managers. I never wanted to do that. I'm too lazy. -Robert Sean Leonard

One of the problems with hip hop is lack of infrastructure and not being able to control its own course. I don't like that hip hop is full of infantile 35-year-olds. Hip hop cannot afford to be lazy. -Chuck D

I never understood the idea that I was a 'backpack rapper.' I think that's a lazy way that people started thinking. They like saying that because I got dreads. I look like I belong a certain place, so it's easy to put everything in a box. -Wale

Yoga is the most boring exercise. It's for people who are too lazy to get on the elliptical. Bikram, where they heat up the room to mimic India's climate, is especially stupid. People in India are not skinny because they're doing yoga in 105-degree rooms; they're skinny because there's no food. -Noureen DeWulf

I live in Selfridges because it has everything under one roof. Liberty's is great for the same reason – I'm so lazy, I hate walking from shop to shop. Powder in Crouch End always has great designer labels in, so when I walk past I have to put my blinkers on because every time I nip in I come out with too much stuff; it's dangerous. -Sheridan Smith

I get offered loads of unusual stuff. I just don't do loads because I like staying at home a lot, and I'm a little bit lazy. I don't get that thing of going from film to film that people do. It would drive me nuts, and that level of fame is quite scary. -Sophie Okonedo

There are American directors I'd really like to work with, but I don't know how much I want to be sitting in my house, doing the rounds of meetings with CEOs. You have to be really hardworking to do all that, and I'm lazy. -Romola Garai

My grandparents would never admit to being Tasmanian, but I think it's really great and funny. But I guess, in the past, Tasmanians just weren't quite accepted. You had that lazy reference to them being felons. -Jessie Cave

First impressions matter more in basketball than in any other sport, and they can be savored only in person. Players can't hide behind pads or helmets, so we can stare at them, evaluate every move they make: running, jumping, walking, even ogling the cheerleaders. We can see every ripple and tattoo. If they're lazy, we can tell. -Bill Simmons

I am so lazy. I really don't have a regimen. When I was younger I used to be into cardio and taebo and step-orobics and hiking. Lately, I haven't done anything at all. I'd like to get into yoga, but I've been really bad. -Bianca Lawson

I'm happy to feed the illusion that I'm a lazy recluse. -Julian Casablancas

I have to watch out for being lazy. -Marianne Faithfull

I can be very lazy sometimes. Really lethargic! -Charlie McDermott

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

I am a very lazy man, so, for me, the dream is to be at home on the chair with my family. -Andrea Bocelli

Cellphones have, if nothing else, turned TV crime writers into lazy sloths. -Douglas Coupland

My beliefs encompass all religions. But I never show my religious inclination in my films. My characters have dark sides; they aren't the god-fearing characters. It wasn't a conscious decision. I'm a very lazy and emotional person who connects with the common man. -Madhur Bhandarkar

I love comedies, and I like sometimes comedies have a tendency to get a bit lazy. 'The Other Guys' was not lazy. -Louis Leterrier

Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds. -Regina Brett

I can't do fiction unless I visualize what's going on. When I began to write science fiction, one of the things I found lacking in it was visual specificity. It seemed there was a lot of lazy imagining, a lot of shorthand. -William Gibson

We are to learn our duty from the Lord, and then we are to act in all diligence, never being lazy or slothful. The pattern is simple but not easy to follow. We are so easily distracted. -Henry B. Eyring

I've written something like 17 novels, which isn't bad, I suppose, but my father wrote 120 books, my mother 40. In comparison, I'm lazy. -Deborah Moggach

What is feminism? Simply the belief that women should be as free as men, however nuts, dim, deluded, badly dressed, fat, receding, lazy, and smug they might be. -Caitlin Moran

It doesn't matter if you're sad or hung-over or lazy or tired – a workout will get your endorphins pumping, and you'll feel like a new person almost instantly. -Rachel Nichols

Great things come out of being hungry and cold. Once you're pampered, you get lazy. -Rob Zombie

As a father, I always want my son to be perfect. When he was young, I tried to train him in martial arts, but he said, 'I don't want to become like Bruce Lee's son, with everybody telling me how good my father was.' I just think my son is too lazy. -Jackie Chan

I get labelled as just being about one thing, but there's lots of layers to what I do. It's just lazy journalism, but people start to accept it. If people spent an hour in my car driving around London and listening to the stuff I listen to, they'd hear some interesting stuff. -Paul Weller

I feel as if my mission is to write, to see, to observe, and I feel lazy if I'm not reaching conclusions. I feel stupid. I feel as if I'm wasting my time. -Paul Theroux

I consider myself pretty lazy, but I look back and check out the stuff I've done, and I say, 'God, that's a lot of stuff for a lazy guy.' It's a paradox, I suppose, being both things. -Jeff Bridges

I'm afraid of only two things: being lazy and being cowardly. I get up early in the morning and go to work. I love to write. -David Mamet

We're a lazy, undisciplined generation. I don't exempt myself: I spend way too much, even though I make a good income. -Ben Stein

Not all single women want to be married. Not all boys like football. Not all homemakers like to cook. Not all messy people are lazy. And not all the obese are gluttons. There are glands and diabetes and a dozen conditions you never heard of that may account for things. Put your sermon through the counter-stereotype sieve. -John Piper

Sweet potatoes are ideal for lazy days: just bake, then mash and mix with yogurt, butter or olive oil. -Yotam Ottolenghi

A lot of crime fiction writing is also lazy. Personality is supposed to be shown by the protagonist's taste in music, or we're told that the hero looks like the young Cary Grant. Film is the medium these writers are looking for. -Peter Temple

I just hate people who are lazy. To be on my team, you have to have energy and a sense of wanting to learn. That really excites me. -Francisco Costa

If there is no criticism, you become lazy. But it should be constructive, and it should be the truth. If it's biased and there's no truth in it, then I don't care about it. If it's true, it helps me grow. -A. R. Rahman

I don't know the definition of a star; I am just an actor. I prefer doing hard work, as I feel luck can't do much in absence of hard work.

Going out at night and having a fabulous social life takes a lot out of you, and I don't know if I have that much to give, honestly. I would rather give that time to my kids or spend that time reading a book or watching a film. I am selfish and lazy. -Kajol

Contemporary curators orbit in the place of distribution and consumption, and less and less in the space of artists. I think it has become a lazy profession in regard to its relationship to the artists and the vigorous state of art making. -Michelle Grabner

I'm from northern Virginia, but I grew up next to the West Virginia border, so it was hills and farmland. We had that sense of adventure you get from growing up around old farmhouses and lazy, rolling hills, you know? -Hilarie Burton

Someone was asking me what my favorite outfit is, and 100%, without a doubt in my mind, is my forever lazy. -Eden Sher

The first rule of comedy should be, you must be very lazy. Whoever works should be immediately removed. -Cyrus Broacha

It's easy to get jaded. It's easy to get lazy. It's easy to get too self-centric, like, 'Why me? What about my needs?' It has nothing to do with that. But you see, you are the thing you are selling whether you are a director or an actor in this business. It's very tough. The town doesn't realize that its greatest resource is its people. -Bill Paxton

I was in school – I was a good learner; if I wanted to get something done, I could get it done. I was lazy, though. I was always, like, sort of an outcast.

The lazy part of me would love to do a sitcom where I could work three days a week and make a fortune. -Corbin Bernsen

I cannot handle dull, lazy, morose people. I have been like that since childhood. -Ravi Teja

One of the most important things liberals don't understand about conservatism, obscured by too much lazy talk about conservatism's various 'wings,' is that its tenets form a relatively organic base for its adherents, where 'traditional morality' serves the interests of laissez-faire economics and vice-versa. -Rick Perlstein

We in the U.A.E. have no such word as 'impossible'; it does not exist in our lexicon. Such a word is used by the lazy and the weak, who fear challenges and progress. -Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

I met Magnus Lidehall about two years ago, and the beat that I originally wrote 'Younger' on was one of the first ones that he sent me. I must have been around 21 at that time, feeling a bit lazy and disappointed with myself and my life. -Seinabo Sey

Crime is stupid, lazy and weak. You can only exploit it and make money out of it. -Gregory David Roberts

It's an amusing idea to some, this feminism thing – this audacious notion that women should be able to move through the world as freely, and enjoy the same inalienable rights and bodily autonomy, as men. At least, that's the impression given when feminism and feminists are all too often the targets of lazy humor. -Roxane Gay

My formative years were in Houston. I was in middle school, and everyone was dropping the last half of their names and adding an 'o' to the end. My little crew that I had, we were an all-female rap group, and everyone had an 'o' at the end of their name. I was Lisso. Then this dude started getting lazy with it, saying Lizzo. -Lizzo

I'm very lazy; if it takes me longer than 15 or 20 minutes to get ready, then I don't want to do it. So I wear a lot of jeans and T-shirts and very normal kind of tomboyish sort of things. -Brittany Snow

If I weren't so lazy, I would have 14 books, not eight. -Daniel Woodrell

I was very stale at Fox. Much of it was my own fault. I was lazy and didn't fight for things I wanted to do at other times. Most of my stuff consisted of setup/punchline jokes to the camera – a very old-school approach. I was part of the establishment, I guess. -Frank Caliendo

Being an individual takes effort. Most people are pretty lazy. And that's OK! I mean, there are more important things than fashion. If it's going to stress you out to have a sense of style, don't do it. The important thing is to be comfortable so you can get on with your life. -Iris Apfel

When I create a character, I do it with the directors, and I take their notes and try to have my notes meet in a common ground. I don't create characters myself, and I don't really think that's my job. I'm not a prep person at all – plus, I'm just a lazy procrastinator. -Keir Gilchrist

There was a time in my life when I wasn't sure I'd ever write a short story again because I had started writing novels, and I am fundamentally a lazy person, and the fact is that a novel is a lazy person's form, really. That is, you can amble; you can digress. -Elizabeth McCracken

I'm no atheist – I'm lazy. I really do like hassle-free Sunday mornings. I have a problem with organized religion, so I've simply opted out. Live and let live, I figure. -Lynn Coady

Lumpy and lazy; I aspired to lethargy. In the second year of university, I missed half my classes just because I couldn't pull myself out of bed. -Victor LaValle

Technology-fueled change is happening so fast that even a six-month-old process could be outdated.

Companies need to have rules – that's a given – but they don't have to be shortsighted and lazy attempts at creating order. -Travis Bradberry

I don't really have the patience to do my hair, which is why it's always parted down the middle, slicked, in a low ponytail or a messy high bun. I'm too lazy to do my own hair, but I like doing my makeup. -Gigi Hadid

Orson Welles was lazy. He was a late bloomer. -Xavier Dolan

Fitness is very important to me because it helps give me a routine when I travel. It gives me one hour of 'me' time and passes the time when I'm lonely. Living with scoliosis serves as a constant reminder to keep my core and back strong. If I get lazy, I feel it in my back first. -Martha Hunt

Like most people, I find watching the lazy and quiet underwater realm of a big aquarium exceptionally calming. -Michael Dirda

When you've got a lot of slaves at your command, you tend to get a little bit fat. You tend to get a little bit lazy. You tend to get a little incompetent because there's not much that you do for yourself anymore. -Andrew Nikiforuk

People who don't get rich are lazy or just have other priorities. -Sergey Galitsky

It's terrible, I know, but I will admit I was a really lazy kid. It was Bronte who would wake me up in the morning, go to training early, and take in some tips from the older training group. I would be there grumbling and complaining. After she began to reap the rewards of her labour, it definitely kindled a fire. -Cate Campbell

I'm very, very lazy. I love to sit in a chair and look out the window and do nothing. -Ingmar Bergman

Solving problems is fine, but it has gotten to the point of being a global obsession. We somehow have it in our heads that if we solve all of the problems, we can sit back and enjoy the easy life. But in reality, we become lazy and complacent. And that's when we get flooded with even bigger problems. -Thomas Frey

I have great Indian genes! You know, I'm lazy. I want to take advantage of the fact that I have a great metabolism. When I start getting fat, I'll work on it! I like food, and I don't like the gym, and as long as I look like this without doing anything, why bother? -Priyanka Chopra

It's a terrible thing to say, and I probably shouldn't say it, but I'm a lazy person when it comes to physical exertion. I don't like gyms unless I need to for a movie or a part or a show. -Priyanka Chopra

I went through a lazy period. -Michael Keaton

Many of us develop different flavors of cynicism that we work hard to resist because they can be lazy mental shortcuts. -James Comey

In the Dobbsian view of America, the mainstream media isn't evil because it's liberal but because it's lazy. And Washington is utterly corrupt, has sold out, Democrats and Republicans alike. And corporate America is an insatiable pig. -Jeanne Marie Laskas

Back when I was in school, few people understood dyslexia and what to do for it. My teachers thought I was lazy and not very clever, and I got bored easily… thinking of all the things I could do once I left school. I couldn't always follow what was going on. -Richard Branson

If, in 2014, we're still making 'white savior movies,' then it's just lazy and unfortunate. We've grown up as a country, and cinema should be able to reflect what's true. And what's true is that black people are the center of their own lives and should tell their own stories from their own perspectives. -Ava DuVernay

I think basically I'm lazy, but I have a housewife's mentality when I go about my job. -Indira Gandhi

I'm lazy. I don't practice enough. I do other stuff. I'm not a musician's musician, and I don't necessarily know if I want to be. When I hear something and want to work on it, then that's what my project will be. -Jason Moran

What's amazing with 'The X Factor' is that it gives people a chance who wouldn't normally have one. I couldn't go on it, because it would be, like, me being lazy, because I've definitely had my opportunities. -Cynthia Erivo

When you're doing something for the first time, you don't know it's going to work. You spend seven or eight years working on something, and then it's copied. I have to be honest: the first thing I can think, all those weekends that I could have at home with my family but didn't. I think it's theft, and it's lazy. -Jonathan Ive

I'm definitely more of a makeup person than a skincare person. I'd love someone to teach me exactly what to do with my skin, but then again, I am also lazy. -Chiara Ferragni

When I'm not working, I still love bright colors and patterns, but I choose pieces that are much more casual – I call it my lazy pinup look. -Andra Day

I'm very lazy when it comes to taking care of my underwear. I should hand wash it all, but I can't be bothered. So instead, I keep ruining stuff by putting it in the washing machine. -Sara Sampaio

If I had to choose, I would always take the less dynamic, indeed even the lazy person who knows what's right than the zealot in the cause of error. He may move slower, but he's headed in the right direction. -Antonin Scalia

I consider myself a lazy guy, but I do a bunch of stuff, and I'm so busy that in my downtime, I like to be with my wife, who I'm just madly in love with. -Jeff Bridges

For me, I love exploring ideas and throwing stuff against the wall and seeing what fits, and if I had a really nice collaborative team around me who could deal with the more day-to-day minutia, that would be fun. And directing sometime in the future and writing… yeah, I can see that all in my future. But I can be incredibly lazy. -Chris Pine

That's the media now. They get lazy. Rumors become fact. Some blogger says something, next thing you know, it's in 'USA Today.' -Martina Navratilova

My family was well off but not rich. I spent the four years I was an undergraduate working on the beach. And it wasn't because I was lazy; it was because my freshman class would go to a hundred different employers and wouldn't get a nibble. That was a disequilibrium system. I realized that the ordinary old-fashioned Euclidean geometry didn't apply. -Paul Samuelson

I'm married to a nurse, and she is really, really ardent that – in screenplays or movies that I've worked on, that all the medical aspects be properly presented. I think that filmmakers ought to be respectful of all fields and not just be lazy and put nonsense in movies because most people won't know the difference. -Scott Derrickson

If you get lazy when you're onstage, it shows. -Usher

I feel like I'm kind of lazy, but I keep the yard looking good. -Kris Kristofferson

I was a slow and lazy reader as a kid. 'The Prince and the Pauper' was the only non-school book I would read, over and over, between television, records and radio, until I picked up my aunt's copy of 'In Cold Blood' and she didn't ask for it back. -Darryl Pinckney

To assume that someone's views are invariably influenced or shaped by his or her partner is lazy. It is an intellectual crutch we grope for when we do not have an effective counter to someone's argument. -Campbell Brown

You can see areas where maybe you got a bit lazy, perhaps, or you see when you were really on form. I think an actor is very like a sportsman in that respect.

I put castor oil in my eyebrows. And I also tint my eyebrows when I get them cleaned up. That way, I don't have to be constantly filling them in, because I'm lazy. -Hailey Baldwin

When you're just in there with the same guys on a regular basis, I think there's a chance to become a little – I don't want to say lazy, but I'll say complacent. So to get a chance to go in there and mix it up with these other guys is exciting. -Shawn Michaels

I remember reading the cruelest, most awful thing about my hair online. A person speculated about who I was as a person and even read into my personal life based solely off my hairstyle. He or she said I must be lazy because I have short hair. It was just devastating. -Tamron Hall

I am so lazy and sometimes will go as late as 9 A.M. to shoot. -Ram Charan

I'm not lazy on set. I'm lazy in the rest of my life. -Stellan Skarsgard

When I first started going on the red carpet, I wore a lot of Armani, but I didn't really have my own style apart from that. I think I was just lazy. -Erika Christensen

There are certain things that I know I don't want to do anymore. Playing out-and-out terrorists who terrorise people and don't actually move the conversation on are not worth doing.

I'm interested in non-fiction, but a form of it which is very badly behaved, which doesn't define itself as straight-ahead journalism or memoir. It blurs boundaries, plays fast and loose with the truth – not to be silly, whimsical or lazy, but to get greater purchase on what it feels like to be alive. -David Shields

I'm at my best when people are depending on me. If it's just on me and I don't have nothing to do, I'm going to be lazy. On the football field, it's every single day, every play, knowing that people are depending on me to make my play. That helps me elevate my game to another level. -Von Miller

Sometimes I feel like being an intellectual. Sometimes I like to just be aggressive and all the way in my feelings. Sometimes I might be emotional, or sometimes I might drag on the track and be lazy.

That's what technology does to you – makes you lazy but allows you to innovate. -Kapil Sibal

Unless it's really an emergency, I'm not going to bother you. And you can see people chafe at that. 'You're in the same office and instant-message each other? Why don't you just walk over?' That's the perfect example of how ingrained the status quo is. To certain people, it may seem lazy, but I would argue it's much more efficient and considerate. -Alexis Ohanian

I don't take off my nail polish when I go home because I'm too lazy, and they're fine with it. Maybe the checkout at the grocery store's not so great with it, but they're fine with it. The distrust, the phobias, those are learned, those are taught. But the natural grace is to understand and to love. -Jeffrey Tambor

For 'The Anthem,' a lot of my fans were like 'Oh, man, he's getting lazy making just, like, a pop format tune that everyone's doing these days.' But on this album, I wanted to write songs with vocals that would get stuck in my head, not just movements of instrumentals. -GRiZ

Outside of white button-down oord cloth shirts, Trickers brogues, 501s, and Ray-Ban Aviators, the single item of clothing that I have had in my closet consistently since 1982 is a pair of black-and-white checked Vans.

In our economic structure, the people who work the hardest oftentimes make the least. I know migrant farm workers who do back-breaking labor every day, or Uber drivers and Lyft drivers who drive 10 to 12 hours a day in traffic. You can't be lazy doing that kind of work. -Michael Tubbs

I've been training jiu-jitsu for a while. It just didn't really click in my brain. Maybe sometimes I get a bit lazy. By the time I realize I'm in trouble, I'm already caught. You can't really think about it. You've got to just react as it happens. -Mark Hunt

I'm very lazy. -Billie Lourd

The inconvenient truth that our lazy media elites do so much to ignore is that Ocasio-Cortez, Sanders, and Warren are much closer in their views to the vast majority of ordinary Americans than the Bloombergs or the Bidens. They are the true centrists, the real moderates; they represent the actual political middle. -Mehdi Hasan

I can't sight-read classical etudes – I would have to see it and learn it. But yeah, I can read. It is a wonderful tool. It's like speaking another language. Anyone that says reading music can hurt your playing is either stupid, lazy, or ignorant. -Steve Lukather
