Every paleontologist knows that most new species, genera, and families, and that nearly all categories above the level of family appear in the record suddenly and are not led up to by known, gradual, completely continuous transitional sequences. -George Gaylord Simpson

Darwin recognized the fact that paleontology then seemed to provide evidence against rather for evolution in general or the gradual origin of taxonomic categories in particular. -George Gaylord Simpson

Almost all paleontologists recognize that the discovery of a complete transition is in any case unlikely. -George Gaylord Simpson

Certainly paleontologists have found samples of an extremely small fraction, only, of the earth's extinct species, and even for groups that are most readily preserved and found as fossils they can never expect to find more than a fraction. -George Gaylord Simpson

The impact of the magazine was very strong. As I said, it portrayed dinosaurs as part of the geological history, part of the story of life on earth. It struck that paleontology was the career for me. -Robert T. Bakker

I've worn my share of leopard pink boots to premieres or belts the size of cars. I thought my pink leopard boots were so cool. -Brittany Snow

I'd like to be that chameleon. That's really ultimately what I want to hear from people eventually: 'I really love when I see him in stuff, but I never know he's gonna be here.' I want to be that actor that surprises you when you see him in a project, and you go, 'Yes! I love that guy. He's in this? Awesome.' -David Gallagher

I kind of consider myself a chameleon in music. I love all sorts of music. -Nick Carter

I was up for Michael Corleone in 'The Godfather,' but, as I was only 10 at the time, I think Mr. Coppola made the right choice. The Julia Roberts role in 'Pretty Woman' held a bizarre allure for me. But, it's silly to look back with regret. -Eric Stoltz

I'm a bit of a chameleon with the whole entertainment industry so to speak. -David Boreanaz

I tried the paleo diet, which is the caveman diet – lots of meat. And I tried the calorie restriction diet: The idea is that if you eat very, very little – if you're on the verge of starvation, you will live a very long time, whether or not you want to, of course. -A. J. Jacobs

Women rule the world. It's not really worth fighting because they know what they're doing. Ask Napoleon. Ask Adam. Ask Richard Burton or Richie Sambora. Many a man has crumbled. -Jon Bon Jovi

Ever since the destruction of Baghdad by the Mongols in 1258, the Muslim world has been in slow decline relative to the west. With Napoleon's invasion of Egypt and the creeping British annexation of Muslim India, that decline took on a malign aspect. -James Buchan

We have a lion, tiger, liger, which is the father is a lion and the mother is a tiger, black and spotted leopard, mountain lion, Asian leopard cats. Weve got a tremendous number of the exotic feline. -Tippi Hedren

These are the animals that are the reason why you don't see old animals in the wild. You don't see sick animals in the wild. You don't see lame animals in the wild, and its all because of the predator: the lion, the tiger, the leopard, all the cats. -Tippi Hedren

Certainly the first true humans were unique by virtue of their large brains. It was because the human brain is so large when compared with that of a chimpanzee that paleontologists for years hunted for a half-ape, half-human skeleton that would provide a fossil link between the human and the ape. -Jane Goodall

I dreamed of becoming a scientist, in general, and a paleontologist, in particular, ever since the Tyrannosaurus skeleton awed and scared me. -Stephen Jay Gould

I love the wry motto of the Paleontological Society, meant both literally and figuratively, for hammers are the main tool of our trade: Frango ut patefaciam – I break in order to reveal. -Stephen Jay Gould

My own field of paleontology has strongly challenged the Darwinian premise that life's major transformations can be explained by adding up, through the immensity of geological time, the successive tiny changes produced generation after generation by natural selection. -Stephen Jay Gould

It is quite widely known that I like shoes. This is not something that defines me as either a woman or a politician, but it has come to define me in the eyes of the newspapers.

I suffer a little bit from Napoleonism, if you will. -Gary Coleman

Steve Jobs was Galileo in a past life. Discovery was instinctual for him. -Sylvia Browne

You don't see sick animals in the wild. You don't see lame animals in the wild, and its all because of the predator: the lion, the tiger, the leopard, all the cats. -Tippi Hedren

I live on the other side of Copernicus and Galileo; I can no longer conceive of God as sort of above the sky, looking down and keeping record books. -John Shelby Spong

Growing up, my sisters were both into dancing, so I went to a lot of dance recitals, mostly because there were always pretty girls in leotards. -Jason Sudeikis

I hope to be known as a chameleon actress, as someone who can play any part out there, and someone who can transform herself into any kind of character there is. -Shannon Elizabeth

I went to South Africa on safari and came eye to eye with a beautiful leopard. We were so close; I was staring at him for a long time and I felt a recognition with my own nature. -Bai Ling

Leopard print has been my thing forever! When I was a teenager my entire room was done in leopard print – it's timeless, chic, and always in style. When in doubt… leopard! -Khloe Kardashian

To be a character actor is to be open, to be a chameleon. -Giancarlo Esposito

When I look at 'Napoleon Dynamite's style I'm reminded of how I spoke when I was an eight-year-old boy. It was just like capturing the essence of, 'Duh!' It was just like the stuff that I would say when I was like eight, nine, ten years old. -Jason Reitman

Singing is an incredible expression and something that is important to me, but where I feel comfortable with how much I reveal about myself is acting. I enjoy the characters, the costumes, the wigs and just being a chameleon. -Brie Larson

I don't wear bright orange clothes or leopard skin boots, but it was really good fun to play someone that does and have an excuse too! -Sally Hawkins

It's beneficial to play against your type; to be chameleon-like. -Laura Carmichael

The snow leopard is absolutely magnificent. It represents really what endangered species are all about. -Jack Hanna

From Caesar's legions to the Napoleonic wars. From the Reformation, the Enlightenment and the industrial revolution to the defeat of nazism. We have helped to write European history, and Europe has helped write ours. -David Cameron

Oh, I'm nerdy about science fiction and fantasy and graphic novels and reading, and I'm nerdy about board games. My favorite board game is a board game I'm working on right now. It's a game of Napoleonic era naval warfare, and it's going to be fun. -Billy Campbell

I felt obligated to change music to art, the same way that Galileo proved the Earth was round to the world and that the Sun did not stand still. -Phil Spector

Some friends said they weren't surprised to find out Napoleon and I were related, but it came as quite a shock to me. -Tom Conti

Black Eyed Peas is a chameleon group. -will.i.am

I love life way too much and find fun in almost anything. I'm a chameleon. -Kellan Lutz

I've eaten lion, leopard, crocodile, python. I don't recommend lion. It tastes exactly like when a tomcat comes into your house and sprays. Snake and crocodile are great – a cross between lobster and chicken. -Wilbur Smith

I don't know how many lions and leopards I've shot. I've shot two elephants, which was enough – never again. It's a melancholy and moving thing to hunt an elephant. It's like shooting an old man. -Wilbur Smith

There have been times I've planted stuff in songs where four years later I'll be singing it from a subconscious, kind of chameleon little lizard mind… and at a certain moment, all of a sudden, I'll hear a line from a different vantage point and it'll change its meaning. It's something I wrote but it changed because I did. -Feist

I like suits. I mean, I always feel good in a suit; I'm more of a suit guy than a shirt-and-jeans-type guy, probably. You know, like, I love Brad Goresky's style. And sometimes he'll wear a pair of, like, leopard pants, and I'm like, I couldn't pull that off, but I appreciate it from afar. -Jesse Tyler Ferguson

I like people who don't accept boundaries. Like Florence Nightingale. And Napoleon or Louis XIV, though I'm not sure how much I'd have liked to meet them. I admire people who aren't circumscribed by circumstance. -Julian Fellowes

The Florida peninsula is, in fact, an emerging plateau, honeycombed with voids and vents, caves and underground waterways. Travelers on Interstate Highway I-75 have no idea that, beneath them, are cave labyrinths still being mapped by speleologists – 'cavers,' they prefer to be called. -Randy Wayne White

Cate Blanchett is somebody who I could watch do anything. I love what an extraordinary chameleon she can be. There's something about the way she bends and transforms that feels otherworldly to me. -Maggie Siff

The actors I respect are the real character actors, who are the real chameleon actors that completely change from role to role. I love Peter Sellers, Alec Guinness and Gary Oldman. They tend to be British, I guess. People who really disappear and transform, I really like that. -Fran Kranz

Just because Galileo was a heretic doesn't make every heretic a Galileo. -Jay Griffiths

Normally, if someone's legacy will outlast their life, it's apparent when they die. On the day when Alexander the Great, or Caesar Augustus, or Napoleon, or Socrates, or Muhammad died, their reputations were immense. When Jesus died, his tiny, failed movement appeared clearly at an end. -John Ortberg

I have always been fascinated by paleontology and prehistoric people, and I've always thought that one of the most intriguing moments in human history was the birth of artistic imagination. I always loved those cave paintings. -Kathryn Lasky

By the time Florence Nightingale got her neurotic hands on Cleopatra, she had been mangled beyond recognition by both history and literature. -Stacy Schiff

No one in the modern world controls the wealth or territory that Cleopatra did. -Stacy Schiff

I wouldn't dare to speculate as to Cleopatra's falling in love. Her relationships are too convenient for that. -Stacy Schiff

We're talking about, essentially, the Roman historians, who wrote Cleopatra into the story mostly so that they could talk about the rise of Rome. And that is one of the problems, of course, in recounting her life. She's only ever apparent to us when there is a Roman in the room, or when her story intersects with the rise of Rome. -Stacy Schiff

From every ancient source, we have testimony to Cleopatra's irresistible charm, as Plutarch has it, to her ability to speak many languages including, as he puts it, the language of flattery and essentially, to be able to turn people to her will – really a great political genius, in that respect. -Stacy Schiff

What we know about Cleopatra's looks is based purely on her coin portraits. Engraving was imperfect, and that when you are a ruler and you ask for a coin to be engraved with your likeness on it, you are probably trying to project a certain air of authority. -Stacy Schiff

I checked to see if there'd been a really good book published in the last few decades. Then I started with what Cleopatra would have read, asking myself, 'What can we know about her education?' It turns out to be a very great deal, and bizarrely, no one had written about that before. -Stacy Schiff

I once interviewed David Herbert Donald, the Lincoln historian, and we talked about how one deals with the secondary sources and the previous biographies. He said something which kept coming back to me as I worked on Cleopatra, which was: 'There's no further new material; there are only new questions.' -Stacy Schiff

Here you have an incredibly ambitious, accomplished woman who comes up against some of the same problems that women in power come up against today. Cleopatra plays an oddly pivotal role in world history as well; in her lifetime, Alexandria is the center of the universe, Rome is still a backwater. -Stacy Schiff

Certainly, I am writing as a 21st-century woman, so I am much more inclined to view her as a three-dimensional woman. I think we keep coming up with this stubborn problem of a woman being judged by her appearance rather than her accomplishments. We are much more inclined to ask: was Cleopatra beautiful? -Stacy Schiff

In 'Plutarch,' her voice begins to come out; there are actual 2,000-year-old quotes from Cleopatra, and they are sly and saucy. -Stacy Schiff

You have to scuba dive in the Alexandrian harbor if you want to see what remains of the lighthouse of Cleopatra's day, and the water in the Alexandrian harbor is not really something you want to come into contact with. -Stacy Schiff

The interesting thing about Cleopatra is that she is such a shape-shifter. I mean through history we've all molded her to our times and our places. So there's room for a movie for her, but I don't think it will hew to the book. -Stacy Schiff

Cleopatra had one great advantage. She lived at a time when female sovereigns were not anomalies. And when women enjoyed rights they would not again enjoy for another 2,000 years. You could call them early feminists, if I may use a dirty word. -Stacy Schiff

We don't know how Cleopatra spent her days, but we do know how other Hellenistic monarchs spent their days. There has been a great amount of scholarship in the last 30 years about education in the Hellenistic world and women in the Hellenistic world. We now know how an upper-class woman was educated in her day. -Stacy Schiff

Cleopatra was on a political mission to save her country and her power, but what we remember about her are these two famed seductions, which are a matter of politics, not a matter of love. -Stacy Schiff

I went out to the desert where Cleopatra camped out with her mercenary army. It's a desolate outpost. Nothing has changed since her day. You realize how far she had to travel. Not only is it a good 150 miles against the current, you can't take a ship. -Stacy Schiff

I believe writers need to be chameleons, or like Meryl Streep, who can play all sorts of characters. A good writer should be able to cross gender lines and people of all social classes. So for me, writing from a male point of view would be a great challenge, that I would look forward to taking on. -Marisha Pessl

Active people don't change the world profoundly; ideas do. Napoleon is less important in world history than Jean-Jacques Rousseau. -Michel Houellebecq

She was not a white woman. She was not a Greek… Until the emergence of the doctrine of white superiority, Cleopatra was generally pictured as a distinctly African woman, dark in color. -John Henrik Clarke

I've learned a lot from being a chameleon, sort of adopting the musical personalities of who I was playing with. -Jeremy Denk

I like generals. I like Napoleon. I like strategy. The majority of them are praised for mass destruction, but it's exciting to see how it comes to the mind mentally. -Curtis Jackson

Do we root for Michael Corleone in the 'Godfather' films? I think so, even if he is a monster. -Jacques Audiard

I was a daughterless mother. I had nowhere to put the things a mother places on her daughter. The nail polish I used to paint our toenails hardened. Our favorite videos gathered dust. Her small apron was in a box in the attic. Her shoes – the sparkly ones, the leopard rain boots, the ballet slippers – stood in a corner. -Ann Hood

Napoleon the Third was not much. He died in England, and was buried in a country church-yard much the same as Kiltartan. But Napoleon the First was a great man; it was given out of him there never would be so great a man again. -Lady Gregory

I'm kind of like a middle mix between a warrior diet and a Paleo diet, so I only eat once a day and it's at night – so kind of like interval fasting. But I eat until I'm full, I eat as much as I want, and I really don't eat anything that you couldn't find, you know, 10,000 years ago. -Ronda Rousey

In pre-school, I was drawing dinosaurs – I was huge into dinosaurs. I wanted to be a paleontologist, not a cartoonist or a filmmaker or anything like that – just a paleontologist. So I would draw dinosaurs. -Jhonen Vasquez

I'm tired of watching as men destroy all the world. Everything used to be beautiful when women were in charge, and now I, working as the physical manifestation of the goddess Isis and the reincarnation of Cleopatra, have decided to save the world. -Roseanne Barr

I don't write huge books any more. I used to write 1,000 printed pages, but now I write short books. I did one on Napoleon, 50,000 words – enjoyed doing that. He was a baddie. I did one on Churchill, which was a bestseller in New York, I'm glad to say. 50,000 words. He was a goodie. -Paul Johnson

Uniforms are intended to make the wearer look as strong as possible. Soldiers could fight in leotards, but that's never going to happen because leotards aren't intimidating. -Erin McKean

It is well known that apes in the wild offer spontaneous assistance to each other, defending against leopards, say, or consoling distressed companions with tender embraces. -Frans de Waal

Paleoclimatic records show clearly that the past 10,000 years, the Holocene, is a remarkably stable period in which we went from being a few hunters and gatherers to become more sedentary agriculture-based civilizations, which then moved us to the current populated modern era. -Johan Rockstrom

When you click on a link, you are replicating the string of code that it links to. Replication of code sequences isn't life, any more than replication of nucleotide sequences is, but we know that it sometimes leads to life. -George Dyson

I was very fortunate, during my early years as a paleontologist, in that my field crews and I made some remarkable discoveries indicating dinosaurs to have been extremely social. -Jack Horner

In the future, I'd like to see paleontology as a whole get a lot more quantitative. -Jack Horner

Europeans are forever the offspring of Machiavelli, trapped in a historical rollercoaster that can bring us a monarchy-toppling French Revolution and then a few years later Napoleon Bonaparte as emperor. -Loretta Napoleoni

Of all the creatures in the world that really frighten me – the hyena in Africa, the great white shark – leopard seals are near the top of the list. They're killers. If my team spots one, they'll pull me out of the water. -Lewis Gordon Pugh

The truth is very few of us are related to Napoleon or Cleopatra. Although, those are bad examples as I am actually descended from both of them. -Jim Piddock

When I was a child, I thought I was going to be a paleontologist because I loved dinosaurs. I loved monster movies and sci-fi, and then 'Star Wars' came out, and I was completely out of my mind with that, with 'Close Encounters,' and then I thought maybe I was going to go into special effects makeup, which I thought was awesome. -Dee Bradley Baker

Galileo got it wrong. The earth does not revolve around the sun. It revolves around you and has been doing so for decades. At least, this is the model you are using. -Srikumar Rao

There are so many different walks of life, so many different personalities in the world. And no longer do you have to be a chameleon and try and adapt to that environment – you can truly be yourself. -Hope Solo

I like being like a chameleon who transforms himself with each role. -Oscar Isaac

I don't like Heather Graham. She did an interview and said, 'I didn't want to kiss Corey; I didn't want to catch his mononucleosis. He had a kissing disease.' -Corey Haim

The hardest achievement in acting – in my opinion, anyway – is nailing a role that absolutely nobody else could have played. Pacino owned Michael Corleone… but DeNiro could have owned it as well. Who else, though, but Val Kilmer could have nailed Jim Morrison? Does anyone besides Will Ferrell pull off Ron Burgundy? -Bill Simmons

If you're feeling frumpy or grumpy, try to eat Paleo. It's a way of eating that is sometimes referred to as the 'Caveman Diet.' -Chelan Simmons

I was a chameleon, the woman men wanted me to be. -Jane Fonda

I become a chameleon for wherever I am. -Bob Saget

I'm a chameleon, so changeable. I see myself as a gadfly and a questioner. -Philip Johnson

I use Kerastase Oleo-Relax when I get out of the shower. It saves my hair. Actually, I've been doing this Brazilian treatment to my hair. It's a lifesaver; I don't even use a straightener anymore. -Ashley Tisdale

I didn't have cable television growing up; there were only six channels you could watch then. The only really good channel was channel 10, and they would play 'The Nanny Called Fran' every night for years. I've seen every episode 100 times. I would get my Grandma to make me leopard skin dresses on her sewing machine. -Iggy Azalea

There's one thing that I like about Rome that was stated by Napoleon: that from sublime to pathetic is only one step away. And in Rome there's a constant shifting between sublime and pathetic. -Paolo Sorrentino

As a model, I didn't have an identity; I was a chameleon, a silent actress. I was an amorphous thing. I wasn't full of personality, I was full of solitude and solemnity. I wasn't a cover-girl type. -Carmen Dell'Orefice

It was unthinkable not long ago that a biologist or paleontologist would be at the same conference as an astrophysicist. Now we have accumulated so much data in each of these branches of science as it relates to origins that we have learned that no one discipline can answer questions of origins alone. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

We had hoped to have been bringing you Arthur the Human Chameleon, but this afternoon, he crawled across a tartan rug and died of exhaustion. -Ronnie Barker

Because of my Asian-ness, I couldn't be anonymous – what I said, what I ate, what I did at the weekend were startlingly different to what everyone else did. I was also a performer, quick and chameleon-like, good at accents, so that made me stand out. -Sanjeev Bhaskar

I'm very aware that after you've played Cleopatra, there's not a lot that can top that in this sphere, so it means that I want to almost change the sphere I work in rather completely because I will always be comparing it to Cleopatra. -Harriet Walter

I'm known for having crazy shoes. I have a total Napoleon complex – I'm only 5'4", and every heel I have is four inches or more. -Laura Wasser

I was born on January 8, 1942, exactly three hundred years after the death of Galileo. I estimate, however, that about two hundred thousand other babies were also born that day. I don't know whether any of them was later interested in astronomy. -Stephen Hawking

If I had a time machine, I'd visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime or drop in on Galileo as he turned his telescope to the heavens. -Stephen Hawking

Moses – the man of God – was a species of human chameleon – scholar, general, law-giver, leader, etc. -Charles Studd

The whole chameleon thing about acting. That's why I'm moving towards directing – it's a much more healthy occupation. -Andy Serkis

There are a lot of hardcore 'Napoleon' fans, and they do the research and find photos of what I look like when I'm not 'Kip-ified.' Those fans recognize me. It happens maybe once a week, where someone will come up to me and be, like, 'Dude, you're Kip.' And I'm, like, 'Yeah, my name's Aaron.' -Aaron Ruell

I don't want to do the nerdy, goofy guy again. That was really fitting for the 'Napoleon' world, but that's kind of where I want it to stay. -Aaron Ruell

In politics, Joseph Smith was something of a radical. He preached, instead of democracy, a version of theocratic rule within a framework given by his own prophetic leadership. At Nauvoo, Smith affected a Napoleonic uniform and made himself into a general and quasi king of the polity he had constituted. -Noah Feldman

I myself am not particularly interested in restaurant cooking. I don't really want to learn how to make a napoleon. I'd much rather learn how to make a very good lemon cake, which you can make in your own home. I like plain, old-fashioned home food. -Laurie Colwin

From Syria even to Rome I fight with wild beasts, by land and sea, by night and by day, being bound amidst ten leopards, even a company of soldiers, who only grow worse when they are kindly treated. -Ignatius of Antioch

Much of modern molecular biology and microbiology has been based on the effort to decipher the basic code of life, which is made up of four nucleotides: adenine, thymine, cytosine, and guanine. -Michael Specter

I'm quite chameleon in my work – not normally looking much like I do in real life. -Lesley Manville

I'm a little brother. I've always been small. People have said I have a Napoleon complex. But I've always had to fight for everything that I have. -Chris Paul

When I had my cancer, the chemotherapy took my hair away. So then I decided I would just keep it short, and this is my signature now. The great thing about it is that I am a bit of a chameleon, so you can put a wig on me and I look totally different. -Anthony Warlow

My first restoration was on 'Napoleon,' trying to put the French version in with the English version, and it was most unsatisfactory. -Kevin Brownlow

I decided to restore 'Napoleon' after a widescreen festival at the Odeon Leicester Square in 1968. It was run by Richard Arnell and George Dunning, who animated and directed 'Yellow Submarine,' and they'd got their hands on the last scene, the triptychs. They just showed that part, without music and with the projectors misaligned. -Kevin Brownlow

'Napoleon' is pure cinema, and cinema was designed for sharing. -Kevin Brownlow

It was 1953, and I was still at school. I'd borrowed a silent French film from the library for my 9.5mm projector. It was by Jean Epstein, and it was awful. So I rang the library and asked if they had anything else. They said they had 'Napoleon Bonaparte and the French Revolution.' -Kevin Brownlow

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 can pull off anything; I have the height and the attitude. The only thing I can't wear is a leotard, but I can wear anything else. -Theophilus London

I'm a paleoanthropologist, and my job is to define man's place in nature and explore what makes us human. -Zeresenay Alemseged

I went to start the first Ethiopian-led project in paleoanthropology, ever. Doing that was not easy. -Zeresenay Alemseged

Artwise, I'm kind of a chameleon. I don't have an established style or anything like that. -Jonathan Hickman

One of the things that I first remember wanting to be was a 'geolisty' – that was the best I could say when I was a kid. That was right after I stopped wanting to be a fireman or a truck driver. Because my dad is a paleontologist who worked with the Smithsonian, I got to see the bones up close and the exhibits behind the scenes there. -Craig Mello

I'm always striving to lose weight. And it's not a matter of wanting to be a size 3 again – I brought out my leotards, and a friend thought they were doll clothes. Being heavy isn't good for you. How long can your heart take the strain? So, I never give up, but it's hard. -Liz Torres

I am a chameleon when it comes the way I dress. I am constantly changing it up, and I really can't commit to one thing because dressing for the day or for an event is really a mood thing. I like variety, and I don't mean just designers, I mean mixing the high-end garments and the cheaper clothing. -Darby Stanchfield

The idea that Arabia is best run by Arabs is no more palatable to Western leaders today than it was to Napoleon or Churchill. -Stephen Kinzer

There are certain historical figures of such importance that we need to know everything about them, which is why books about Napoleon, Lincoln, Julius Caesar, Joan of Arc, Queen Elizabeth I, and the great religious founders continue to proliferate; these lives require constant reevaluation and interpretation. -Robert Gottlieb

One day, we'll have 10, 20 or 50 Jaleos around America or around the world. -Jose Andres

If you ask me about Napoleon, I'll tell you about his relationship with sugar. And canning – thanks to Napoleon, we have canning. -Jose Andres

I'm very happy with how Jaleo in Las Vegas came together. -Jose Andres

I got a dog with a Napoleon complex. I have a Napoleon complex. We're small. Anything big that we feel is threatening us, we want to fight. We're not a pushover. -Kevin Hart

Ancient, woman-centered words and beliefs never, like, fall off the planet. Having long done taken on a life of their own, they – like womankind – evolve, and survive. Chameleon style. -Inga Muscio

The more money you spend, the more you need to make back, and the more pressure there is to appeal to everyone – which to the studio means that the specificity and uniqueness must be watered down. But I think mass audiences like things that are more specific and tend to have a voice, like 'Napoleon Dynamite' or 'Superbad.' -Casey Wilson

I love anything leopard print, but sometimes an all over print can be a bit much. -Ashley Madekwe

If I'm going to be honest with you, when I trained at school, I feel like I was training to be a chameleon. I want to be that versatile actor who can do anything – that's why you learn fifty different dialects, you do Shakespeare, you do commedia, you do it all so that if any job comes your way, you should be able to do it. -Rutina Wesley

One of the things that always fascinated me about the Renaissance was that it was a time both of great scientific discovery and also of superstition and belief in magic. And so it was a period in which Galileo invented the telescope, but also a time when hundreds were burned at the stake because people thought they were witches. -Marie Rutkoski

I really like 'Passion of the Christ.' I like that movie. I also like 'We Were Soldiers,' and 'Braveheart.' And 'Napoleon Dynamite' – that movie was funny. -Luke Benward

You re-watch 'Napoleon Dynamite', and there's a lot of thrift shopping that goes on in that movie; there's a lot of funny stuff. It's definitely amusing, and paying 99 cents for a samurai sword is amazing. -Al Madrigal

For our team leotards, we get about ten to choose from to actually compete in at the Olympics. -McKayla Maroney

When you're competing, you have to wear a sleeve that goes all the way down to your wrist. When you're training, you usually don't wear long-sleeved leotards, so there's a difference between training and competing. -McKayla Maroney

In gymnastics, everything is a competition. You want to have your hair look the best and your makeup look the best. You want to be the best, and you want to have the prettiest leotard. -McKayla Maroney

One of my kids keeps on saying that he wants to be a paleontologist, but first he wants to make a time machine, so he can go back and save the dinosaurs. -James Callis

Along with all those books about Lincoln, Obama might read some biographies of Napoleon. The general who established the Legion d'Honneur understood that people fought as much for medals as for morals. -Tina Brown

I had always been fascinated with Napoleon because he was a self-made emperor; Victor Hugo said, 'Napoleon's will to power,' and it was the title of my paper. And I submitted it to my teacher, and he didn't think I had written it. And he wanted me to explain it to him. -August Wilson

Texas governor Rick Perry's wife, Anita, has come out slugging in her glittering leopard-print jacket against what she sees as the unfair treatment of her husband. She tearfully said that he has been 'brutalized' for his faith. -Patti Davis

I'm a chameleon. I can change my voice a lot. I always was able to, because in my family's music, I was a harmony singer, and harmony singing is really hard. -Linda Ronstadt

The study of literature threatens to become a kind of paleontology of failure, and criticism a supercilious psychoanalysis of authors. -John Updike

I think Wilco is going to definitely stand the test of time – no question – and Uncle Tupleo, and the whole No Depression scene, which is now alt-country. I think that's going to be around a long time. -Roger McGuinn

Let no one refer to the sword of Napoleon I as the instrument of progress and civilization! -Elie Ducommun

Girls have always wanted to be pretty, even in Egyptian times. Cleopatra wore all that eyeliner, you know. -Rita Ora

Louisiana commenced her existence as a state under a code of laws differing from all the other states which were founded on the common law, in that its code, a new one, was founded mainly on the Civil Law and the Code Napoleon of France. -Samuel Freeman Miller

Conservatism is, among many other things, a culture. The most important glue binding it together is a shared sense of cultural grievance – the conviction, uniting conservatives high and low, theocratic and plutocratic, neocon and paleocon, that someone, somewhere is looking down their noses at them with a condescending sneer. -Rick Perlstein

My personal trainer suggested paleo to build muscle while staying lean, and it's one of the first plans that's worked for me. -Tim Howard

Some kinds of animals burrow in the ground; others do not. Some animals are nocturnal, as the owl and the bat; others use the hours of daylight. There are tame animals and wild animals. Man and the mule are always tame; the leopard and the wolf are invariably wild, and others, as the elephant, are easily tamed. -Aristotle

'Napoleon Dynamite' blew up my career. -Efren Ramirez

I'm a bit like a chameleon with my accent. -Joel Kinnaman

I'm trying to do the paleo diet. No carbs. -Robin Wright

I think all novels are contemporary. When people went to see 'Antony-Cleopatra' at the Globe in the 16th century, they were not going to get a history lesson on the Roman Empire. It was about love, sex, and also about dynastic troubles. -Richard Flanagan

I got my first leopard print coat when I was 15. I nearly got beat up, but I was happy with it. -Imelda May

It used to be, it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier. -Ted Cruz

Eating Paleo just leans you down and slims you up and takes that little layer of fat and water-weight right off your body. -Jessica Biel

We have two boys, and one of our kids is much more interested in history and stories, so if you want him to do some calculations about lenses, you would start talking to him about Galileo… Then he would be into the lenses, but if you just start talking to him about lenses, he might not stay with you. -Megan Smith

I very deeply appreciate the honour which you have conferred upon me in awarding the Nobel Prize for 1923 to me and Professor J.J.R. Macleod. -Frederick Banting

I love when a girl is like, 'I can't hang out. I have to go to class.' And I go pick her up, and she's all sweaty in a leotard with her hair in a bun. That's the hottest thing ever. -Ansel Elgort

I first got sick after I had my daughter, Kimberly, 21 years ago. I'd always been energetic and never had any serious medical problems. Then I got very sick with a high fever. They told me I had mononucleosis. I became pregnant right away with Sean, and after he was born, I never seemed to recover. -Alana Stewart

I've always been a chameleon from book to book, like a director who does different films in the best possible way. -Tony DiTerlizzi

When you do a film as unique and original as 'Napoleon Dynamite,' it's hard then try to repeat what audiences loved the first time. -Mike Scully

The idea of 'Napoleon Dynamite' as an animated series made perfect sense to me. -Mike Scully

The Egyptians saw the sun and called him Ra, the Sun God. He rode across the sky in his chariot until it was time to sleep. Copernicus and Galileo proved otherwise, and poor Ra lost his divinity. -Ashwin Sanghi

When I came back from filming the 'Chandelier' video, everyone was like, 'So what'd you wear? What did the room look like? How many chandeliers were there?' And I was like, 'Well, I wore a blond wig, a nude leotard, the room was dirty, and there was no chandelier.' -Maddie Ziegler

I definitely like wearing leotards. -Maddie Ziegler

I went to grad school with the grand plan of getting my Ph.D. and writing weighty, Tudor-Stuart-set historical fiction – from which I emerged with a law degree and a series of light-hearted historical romances about flower-named spies during the Napoleonic wars. -Lauren Willig

I was born in 1943 at Neston in the Wirral, not far from Liverpool where my father, Richard William Hunt was a lecturer in paleography, the study of mediaeval manuscripts. -Tim Hunt

I can only be me. I have a hard time being a chameleon as a singer. -Chris Stapleton

Between their rise in the thirteenth century and their sudden fall in the seventeenth, when the line abruptly ended, the Medicis produced three popes, two queens, and many Florentine rulers, and they supported the work of Galileo, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Botticelli – a veritable parade of geniuses. -Hanya Yanagihara

The variety of polyprenol phosphate sugars may turn out to be as large as that of sugar nucleotides. -Luis Federico Leloir

It become totally untenable to me that after acting for 25 years – I've played Juliet, Cleopatra and Anne Frank – there I was, sitting in Hollywood, just waiting for somebody to want me. -Susan Strasberg

During normal cell metabolism, RNA is constantly being made and broken down. The purine and pyrimidine residues are reused by several salvage pathways to make more genetic material. Purine is salvaged in the form of the corresponding nucleotide, whereas pyrimidine is salvaged as the nucleoside. -Richard J. Roberts

I loved dinosaurs, I loved space, and I thought maybe I'd be the first paleo-astronaut. -Bill Maris

I don't like to say bad things about paleontologists, but they're not very good scientists. They're more like stamp collectors. -Luis Walter Alvarez

Different viral species contain nucleic acids that differ not only in length and nucleotide sequence but in many unexpected ways as well. -Alfred Hershey

In arguing that machines think, we are in the same fix as Darwin when he argued that man shares common ancestors with monkeys, or Galileo when he argued that the Earth spins on its axis. -Herbert A. Simon

I feel now, as we did then, that for an effective approach to the problem of nucleic acid biosynthesis, it was essential to understand the biosynthesis of the simple nucleotides and the coenzymes and to have these concepts and methodology well in hand. -Arthur Kornberg

I come from a real working class background, and I didn't know anyone sophisticated – except I saw Edie Sedgewick once at the Art Museum in Philly. She had these black leotards and little black pumps and this big ermine cape and all these white dogs and black sunglasses and black eyes. She was classy! -Patti Smith

Two of the first plays I saw after I arrived in Britain were 'King Lear' in Liverpool, and 'Antony and Cleopatra' at Stratford. One was produced with hardly a backdrop and the other with gigantic scene changes. I was impressed by what connected the two: the words and their life beyond the stage. -Romesh Gunesekera

I once read that there are more biographical works about Napoleon Bonaparte than any other man in history. -Michael Dirda

While Napoleon believed his fortunes to be governed by destiny, his real genius lay in self-control and martial daring coupled with an indomitable will to power. -Michael Dirda

My first role was in the George Gershwin musical 'Crazy for You' at the Orlando Repertory Theatre when I was 11 – I grew up in Florida – and I wasn't old enough to be in it, but they let me anyway. I was just this little shrimp in a leotard. -Aubrey Peeples

Not all of us are chameleons that can do every different thing. I hope I'm going to be typecast. I will play the girl next door for the rest of my life if I have to. I always kind of feel like I have that in my pocket when I go in a room. -Kaley Cuoco

The Emperor Napoleon, ascending gradually from his post of national magistrate to seat himself upon a throne without limits, seems to have wished to punish, as for the abuse of republican reforms, by making us feel all the weight of absolute monarchy. -Marquis de Lafayette

I'm a chameleon. That's my personality in the band. -Robin Zander

I'm a lover of all sorts of music, which makes me a chameleon when it comes to performing anything, whether it's opera or whatever. As long as it's good and it feels good, I'm going to cling to it. -R. Kelly

The movie truism is that stars play themselves, while actors play other people – troubled or toxic, and memorably strange. By that definition, Philip Seymour Hoffman, who disappeared into the rabbit hole of his characters' souls, was our generation's anti-star and the chameleonic film actor of his age. -Richard Corliss

I like switching gears. I'm kind of a chameleon. -Adam Schlesinger

From 1801, Napoleon began an ambitious programme of civil reform to standardise law and justice, centralise education, introduce uniform weights and measures and a fully functioning internal market. That achievement alone makes him one of the giants of history. -Saul David

It is surely no coincidence that Napoleon's two greatest heroes were Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar. In certain respects, he would outdo them both. -Saul David

By the time Napoleon abandoned his army to its fate in Poland – arriving back in Paris on 5 December – it numbered fewer than 10,000 effectives. It was a disaster from which he would never recover. -Saul David

I wouldn't mind an original letter from Napoleon to Josephine – in the early days, his letters arrived torn to pieces because he was overwhelmed by his passion for her. -Kate Williams

In each of my homes, I have a leopard room. I don't know why, but I do. It's like my lounge next to the dressing rooms. -Ivana Trump

As an eight-year-old, I would listen to stories and biographies of Charles Darwin and Galileo. I also went to wonderful schools and had great teachers who inspired me. -John C. Mather

Galileo wasn't put in prison because he was wrong about anything he discovered looking through his telescope; rather, he was incarcerated simply because he saw what others didn't wish to see. -Brin-Jonathan Butler

Historical fiction was not – and is not – meant to supplant literature from the period it describes. As a veteran of the Crimea, Tolstoy wrote 'War and Peace' to match his own internal sense of the truth of the Napoleonic wars, to dramatize what he felt literature from that period had failed to describe. -Alexander Chee

Napoleon might have understood Dwight D. Eisenhower, who fought not even a hundred and fifty years after Waterloo. But I don't think Eisenhower could even begin to wrap his mind around drone warfare, spy satellites, or any of the technology that now defines the security of our world. -Claudia Gray

'The Apprentice' has been excellent for my dad. Before, there was always that kind of corporate, Napoleonic evilness to Donald Trump. Now people see him interacting with normal – barely normal – individuals, and it's like, 'Wait a second. He's a regular guy!' -Donald Trump, Jr.

In the morning, I usually get up between 7:40 A.M. and 7:45 A.M., and then I'll brush my teeth, do my hair, and just throw on my leotard and my clothes and go to the kitchen. -Simone Biles

We used to exchange leotards with gymnasts from other countries. I don't remember who I got my most prized leotard from, but it was one with a lot of stars on it. -Nadia Comaneci

Human brains – in terms of cognition and emotion and consciousness – are essentially the same as they were at the time of Shakespeare or Jesus or Cleopatra or the Stone Age. They are not evolving with the pace of change. -Matt Haig

One of my favourite pieces is 'Antony and Cleopatra' – I'd love to be in that. Or an alternative version of 'Romeo & Juliet' where I get to play Mercutio, something like that. -Cynthia Erivo

Napoleon – the people who were becoming Napoleon's generals realized that for him, it was not about spreading freedom and revolution; it was about creating a new empire with Napoleon the dictator or the emperor. -Tom Reiss

In 1817, Czar Alexander I personally founded the Society of Israelite Christians but had less luck defeating Judaism than he'd had defeating Napoleon; gentile serfs and merchants in areas bordering the Pale even showed disturbing new signs of 'Judaizing.' -Tom Reiss

Napoleon's plan was for his army to arrive in Egypt not as conquerors but liberators. Landing in Aboukir Bay on July 1, 1798, the French captured Alexandria the next day, overcoming the surprised Mamelukes – the despotic local rulers – with a combination of modern artillery and infantry tactics. -Tom Reiss

In early 1798, the Directory, the oligarchy that was ruling revolutionary France, ordered its top general, Napoleon Bonaparte, to plan the invasion of England. Instead, Napoleon organized and carried out the invasion of Egypt, which became the first modern incursion by the West into the Middle East. -Tom Reiss

The tasks of paleontologists and classical historians and archaeologists are remarkably similar – to excavate, decipher and bring to life the tantalizing remnants of a time we will never see. -Adrienne Mayor

If you're going to choose to do something like the Paleo Diet, then you choose not to enjoy your nights out. -Chrissy Teigen

I love meat and vegetables. If I did a diet, I would do Paleo, except they have no cheese, which is very upsetting. I'm going to start my own Chrissy diet that's like Paleo plus cheese. Plus late Saturday night drive-through. -Chrissy Teigen

Bio-Oil is the best scar and stretchmark prevention/remedy. I swear by the entire range of Vea Oleo – their lip balm is great. I use the one in tubes for my son Otto's winter skin dryness. -Margherita Missoni

For me, it's about being comfortable… but I can feel comfortable in a thong leotard and on stage. Growing up as a dancer, that's how I'm comfortable in my body. It's about where you grew up and those things; it's a way of communicating your spirit to the world. -Jillian Hervey

I'm inherently a chameleon… to not evolve is to not live. -Andra Day

I loved 'Welcome to the Dollhouse.' That was one of the most influential movies ever. You know that genre with the nerdy girl, and she redeems herself in the end. Like 'Napoleon Dynamite.' And in 'Welcome to the Dollhouse,' she doesn't. She sucks. It's like, that's what's real. That's what's heartbreaking. -Jonathan Krisel

I never wanted to be a brand director. I didn't want that kind of stamp. I wanted to be more like Pacino or Dustin Hoffman or Meryl Streep or De Niro – you know, a chameleon as a storyteller – because I love all kinds of movies. -Ron Howard

Indeed, it is measure of how little we know about Cleopatra that the only images of her are either the coins she struck, bearing very unflattering official portraits of her, or some doubtful busts, which may be of other women imitating her coiffure. -Michael Korda

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

Me, as a person, I grow. I'm like a chameleon. You know? That is a gift and a curse for me. But more so a gift, because it never puts me in a box. -Kendrick Lamar

For me, actresses are constantly chameleons, and so they are taking a backseat to their own personality. I don't feel like we're trying to show off their personality as much as let them be a blank slate. It's precisely the reason why I dress more musicians than I do actresses. -Jeremy Scott

Watching and learning from the great Josette Bushell-Mingo, who was playing Cleopatra in Antony and Cleopatra at the time, and then to return to the same stage six months later playing a lead role, was incredible – I fell in love with the poetry and the breadth of the language so much that I didn't want it to end. -Gugu Mbatha-Raw

With the help of personal introductions by Andrew Carnegie, diligence and an absolute burning desire to teach the world how to become successful, Napoleon Hill devoted nearly his entire adult lifetime creating practical content entrepreneurs need to become successful. -Clay Clark

I'm a chameleon when it comes to languages. -Mary Steenburgen

Napoleon's The One Concealer is amazing. Pantene Styling Treatment Foam makes my stupid-crazy hair behave, and I love hair powders such as Aveda Pure Abundance and Batiste Dry Shampoo. -Zoe Foster Blake

I definitely drink lots of water. I use this Decleor Neroli Oil to moisturize – no matter what the climate is, it always makes my skin really moist. -Banks

I'm fortunate enough to have had an opportunity to do a range of stuff, and the thing I admire most in actors is versatility, those that morph and change, those kind of chameleon actors who are unrecognisable from one job to another. That's something that I aspire to establish myself. -Will Poulter

Henderson had a thousand times more to do with the discovery of insulin than had Macleod. In the first place, he knew more about it. In the second place, he was consulted before every series of experiments, and he advised, criticized, or commended. -Frederick Banting

Professor Macleod, in his remarks, gave everything that I was going to say and used the pronoun 'we' throughout. The following day, students were talking about the remarkable work of Professor Macleod. -Frederick Banting

I like being a chameleon and doing things that are just so different that people will be like, 'Oh, that's him?' -Corey Hawkins

Why not have a motivation beyond me to get to a healthy weight? Every actor does that. We're chameleons. We change; we grow as an actor. You lose weight, you gain weight, you change your hair or whatever. -Chrissy Metz

We absolutely do some of the best science in the world in Canada, across a broad spectrum of disciplines: quantum computing in Waterloo, paleontology in Alberta, neuroscience at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health in Vancouver, and many more. -Robert J. Sawyer

I'd really love to be a versatile, chameleon-like actress, stretching myself a bit. -Gabriella Wilde

Galileos still exist in science. Sometimes a lone proponent of a new idea turns out to be right. -Kyle Hill

I was in awe of my father. His generosity was beyond anything I ever could imagine. The reason I say he's like Don Corleone is he was always breaking off hundreds. I'd be like, 'Hey Dad, I'm going to McDonald's with my friends,' and he'd just whip out a hundred: 'Here, go, have fun.' -Maz Jobrani

I think the leotard for me became, after I retired, a sort of a symbol of the confines of still fitting into the ballet world in mind and body. -Wendy Whelan

I really only had one audition in my life, and that was when I was 14 or 15. When I was that young, I listened to what my teachers would say, like wearing a certain kind of leotard that you'll be noticed in. -Wendy Whelan

I've never shied away from country. 'Karma Chameleon' verges on country. Reggae and country are very closely linked. If you go to Jamaica, you hear a lot of country music. There's a correlation. -Boy George

I worked at The Old Globe Theater under the great baton of Craig Noel. One of the great theater heroes that we have. He was so great and so inspirational. I think I did 'Antony and Cleopatra' and 'The Taming of the Shrew'. I lived in Ocean Beach, and my rent was $140 a month. -Jeffrey Tambor

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

Rubio's supporters must believe rank-and-file Republican voters are really stupid – or so desperate they can be persuaded that up is down, a leopard can change its spots, and a dozen bilingual unicorns will lead off Rubio's inaugural parade. -Tom Tancredo

I have this amateur side attraction to, and interest in, the sciences and biology and physics and evolution. Paleontology is of interest to me. I'm interested in the way these fields have helped us understand how we are human and why we are human. -Wangechi Mutu

I've always been intrigued and fascinated by Gaga. She is a chameleon; she has the capability to fully express her individuality and her eclectic personality by simply being herself. -Alessandro Michele

I don't think I'm a chameleon. I can feel where people are coming from, what makes them tick, where they are vulnerable, what makes them feel good about themselves. I get just as much out of it as they do. I love connecting. -Theo Epstein

Cate Blanchett. Judi Dench. Helen Mirren. Everything about them. Even their fashion choices. They're so with it and cool and women I admire. They take chances. They're chameleons. Everything that they do. They're also amazing mothers. -Lily Collins

When Galileo first trained his optic telescope on the heavens and opened up modern optical astronomy, that was the first of the electromagnetic windows out of the universe: light. -Kip Thorne

Unfortunately, I think I drifted so much growing up that I don't have a strong sense of identity. I don't feel at home anywhere, and because of that, I think I'm more of a chameleon. -Chloe Zhao

I got my fair share of stick. But I surrounded myself with fabulous girls, and they all loved me because I made them clothes. I remember making them all leopard print tops and tartan skirts for a party we went to once. It's scary to think about it now, actually. -Matthew Williamson

There are similarities between historical novels and science fiction. Being thrown into the Napoleonic Wars is just as much of a different world as space. -Alastair Reynolds

I went to drama school, where you learn to clown around a bit. You're walking around in leotards every day for three years, and you're taught clowning and mask work. -Michaela Coel

I had always been moved by the story and love of Antony and Cleopatra. Their love moved and changed the world. While their love ended in tragedy, their love endured the march of time. Their passion lit the world on fire. -Shervin Pishevar

I think that some of the earliest ideas in the modern period were actually from astronomy. You look at Galileo: He goes up and points his telescope up at Jupiter and finds out, hey, Jupiter has these moons. -Trevor Paglen

I was way into 'Voltron,' Ray Harryhausen: anything with giant monsters, I was really into. Even dinosaurs – for a while, I wanted to be a paleontologist. So it's almost like primal, ancestral mythology to me, this fascination with monsters. -Travis Beacham

Where does an actress go after playing Cleopatra's magnificent death? Why didn't Shakespeare write more – and more powerful – roles for mature women? -Harriet Walter

I decided I was going to play Cleopatra as someone with a brain. She's kept Egypt, this tiny country, in a balance of power with the almighty Roman empire, and she's done it through force of personality. -Harriet Walter

The language is always powerful in Shakespeare, but with 'Antony and Cleopatra,' the speeches are so big and muscular and rich – exhausting to speak, actually. -Harriet Walter

Cleopatra was exhausting to play, but also completely exhilarating. She creates her own energy. -Harriet Walter

Of course, as a kid, I had no idea what was practical: I wanted to be a paleontologist, then an astronaut. -Celeste Ng

I don't think I'm as revolutionary as Galileo, but I don't think I'm not as revolutionary as Galileo. -Jaden Smith

I'm really drawn to chameleons; I'm really drawn to people who can play a wide range of roles, who are really versatile, but are so in a way that's with ease. -Matt Letscher

I feel like I wear kind of the same things on stage that I would wear every day, unless I'm being lazy, and then I just wear trackies. But actually, if I'm honest, I wouldn't really walk down Kilburn High Street in a leotard, and I would wear that onstage. -Dua Lipa

Maybe in the world of BoJack, physical attraction is sort of different, beauty standards are different from our world because, why not? It's just more fun to have a sexy chameleon or a blue-tongued skink or whatever. I don't know how subversive that is, but it's fun for me. -Lisa Hanawalt

People are fed up of career politicians that keep changing like chameleons. -Todd Wilcox

Working with Justin Bieber, I learned that he can literally do any genre – he's a chameleon. His voice is so flexible that he's not locked in to one genre, and it just shows the world that he can really sing anything. -Poo Bear

The little Napoleons in UMNO try to keep out people who are more intelligent than themselves. -Mahathir Mohamad

My mother was very good at encouraging me to dress however I wanted to dress. My sisters would sometimes think, 'Oh my God, you let her buy that fuzzy leopard coat at that vintage store?' I thought, of course, I looked like Audrey Hepburn. -Kate Spade
