Lust is temporary, romance can be nice, but love is the most important thing of all. Because without love, lust and romance will always be short-lived. -Danielle Steel

When I come to Chicago, I gorge myself. I get off the plane and start with Gene and Jude's for two hot dogs with everything, swing by The Fudge Pot for a taffy apple and a turtle, chocolate clusters at Sarah's Pastries and Candies and steak at Smith and Wollensky. I find time for Gino's pizza within the next 12 hours. -James Belushi

In the Tea Party era, it is the restless conservative Republican who has become passion's plaything, the toy of impetuous romance, an erotomania only intensified by the lusting for an upstart savior. -James Wolcott

When my TV show, 'Sports Jobs with Junior Seau,' assigned me to be a 'Sports Illustrated' reporter for a weekend, I didn't realize I'd have to squeeze it in around another sports job. I had planned to retire from the NFL to enjoy the cushy lifestyle of a full-time reality TV star, but I wound up getting run over by a bull. -Junior Seau

I wanted to become an illustrator as a child. -Karl Lagerfeld

I'm an illustrator. I have to accept my role. -Maurice Sendak

I don't think of myself as an illustrator. I think of myself as a cartoonist. I write the story with pictures – I don't illustrate the story with the pictures. -Chris Ware

I am a living illustration of Bosnian mixing and converting. My grandparents lived in eastern Herzegovina. Very poor. The Turks came and brought Islam. There were three brothers in the family. One was Orthodox Christian. The other two took Islam to survive. -Emir Kusturica

The new industries are brainy industries and so-called knowledge workers tend to like to be near other people who are the same. Think of the City of Hollywood. People cluster. This means you have winning regions, such as London and Cambridge, and losing regions. The people who want to be top lawyers in Sunderland are hoovered up by London. -Evan Davis

When I was at college, I worked in a department store called Brit Home Stores, which is a pretty lackluster department store, selling clothes for middle-aged women. My job was to walk the floor and find anything that was damaged, take it to the store room and log it. -Dominic Monaghan

I've got lots of weird illustrations of me from Japanese fans. -Jamie Bell

I did a shoot for 'Sports Illustrated,' and my grandpa called me and asked when my issue of 'Playboy' was coming out. It was hilarious as well as embarrassing. -Jasmine Tookes

The Hebrew Bible contains multiple provisions to ensure that no one would go hungry. The corners of the field, forgotten sheaves of grain, gleanings that drop from the hands of the gleaner, and small clusters of grapes left on the vine were to be given to the poor. -Jonathan Sacks

We develop our propensity to forgive or not to forgive by what we see illustrated at the early ages of our development. -T. D. Jakes

Here is the amazing thing about Easter; the Resurrection Sunday for Christians is this, that Christ in the dying moments on the cross gives us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible. -T. D. Jakes

Just about every children's book in my local bookstore has an animal for its hero. But then, only a few feet away in the cookbook section, just about every cookbook includes recipes for cooking animals. Is there a more illuminating illustration of our paradoxical relationship with the nonhuman world? -Jonathan Safran Foer

I write plays and movies, I live and work at the borderline between word and image just as any cartoonist or illustrator does. I'm not a pure writer. I use words as the score for kinetic imagistic representations. -Tony Kushner

I was a lusty kid who loved Tennessee Williams. -St. Vincent

I respect newspapers, but the reality is that magazine 'photojournalism' is finished. They want illustrations, Photoshopped pictures of movie stars. -Mary Ellen Mark

Ignorance and bloodlust have a long tradition in the United States, especially in the red states. -Jane Smiley

Science, we are repeatedly told, is the most reliable form of knowledge about the world because it is based on testable hypotheses. Religion, by contrast, is based on faith. The term 'doubting Thomas' well illustrates the difference. -Paul Davies

By the end of the 1980s, Seattle had taken on the dangerous lustre of a promised city. The rumour had gone out that if you had failed in Detroit you might yet succeed in Seattle – and that if you'd succeeded in Seoul, you could succeed even better in Seattle… Seattle was the coming place. So I joined the line of hopefuls. -Jonathan Raban

The great thing about using the past is that it gives you the most colossal freedom to invent. The research is necessary, of course, but no one writes a novel to dramatically illustrate what everybody already knows. -Peter Carey

A make-up artist I know polished her Oscar and it lost its lustre. But if you don't polish it, it doesn't tarnish. -Jim Broadbent

That's the secret of 'True Blood' – all the creatures that roam Bon Temps become a metaphor for our insatiable lusts and inner desires. Humans craving what they can't have and those secret appetites transforming them into beasts, or even killers. -Rob Sheffield

In their heyday, the Pet Shop Boys were the Interpol of the Eighties, dressing up to sing really weird pop songs about lust and loneliness in the big city. They're low-pro now, not retro-worshipped in the manner of Depeche Mode, New Order, or The Cure, but you can hear the reason why – these guys are too sad. -Rob Sheffield

I'm just basically trying to make music that feels good. Right now in the music industry there's a real lack of intimacy. You don't really connect with the artist as much anymore, and you don't really understand where they are. I'm basically doing music that illustrates who I am and where I am in my life. -Tristan Wilds

An example I often use to illustrate the reality of vanity, is this: look at the peacock; it's beautiful if you look at it from the front. But if you look at it from behind, you discover the truth… Whoever gives in to such self-absorbed vanity has huge misery hiding inside them. -Pope Francis

Comics don't work if the story is all in the text and the images are illustrative. It's hard to have enough faith in the artists to allow them to do their job. -Denise Mina

My dream was always to be on the cover of 'Sports Illustrated.' -Kate Upton

I walked out of Spielberg's 'Lincoln' having such a thirst for more. It used such a microscopic albeit enormous event in American history. It used such a small piece of his presidency to illustrate him as a president through the lens of that event. -Jesse Johnson

We've lost these qualities, these abilities to do something by hand. Some illustrators have it still, but it's just not art. We have photography. We have cameras and computers that do it better and faster. -Gerhard Richter

Apple Computer would not have reached its current peak of success if it had feared to roll the dice and launch products that didn't always hit the mark. In the mid-1990s, the company was considered washed up, Steve Jobs had departed, and a string of lackluster product launches unrelated to the company's core business. -Naveen Jain

I'm a big illustration and comic book fan. In my eyes, comic books and illustration are the same kind of art forms. -Mika

The film 'Tapped' illustrates quite clearly how we've been getting 'soaked' for years by the bottled water industry. -Ed Begley, Jr.

I always wrote little things when I was younger. My first opus was a book of poems put down in a spiral notebook at five or six, handsomely accompanied by crayon illustrations. -Nicole Krauss

And then 'Wanderlust,' Ken Marino and David Wain wrote the funniest – they're amazing. That was one of my most favorite creative experiences; we're all up at that commune, a small group of people. Everyone was funnier than the next. It was an amazing ensemble feeling. Everyone gave and took in the best way. -Kathryn Hahn

I was on vacation with my family when I got the scripts for 'Wanderlust' and I was trying to work on the audition while I was on vacation. I remember a big gust of wind blew the entire script into the pool, so I had to dry it with a hairdryer. -Kathryn Hahn

I remember, as a child, the confusion of not knowing what this place was where I was supposed to spend the night: it's a disquieting experience for a child. And what I would do was quickly unpack my books and go back to a book I knew well and make sure the same text and the same illustrations were there. -Alberto Manguel

Once I'm given an idea for a story I have a million ideas on how it should be illustrated, but I don't have a big shoebox full of unfinished ideas. -Brian Selznick

For most of my career I illustrated books for other people. -Brian Selznick

I love being an illustrator because I get to read really great stories, work with amazing people, travel and see places I never would've seen. And I get to draw all the time. -Brian Selznick

I majored in illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, although I never had any intention of being an illustrator and didn't take any classes in illustration there. It was just that the illustration degree had no requirements. -Brian Selznick

I love illustrating for other writers because I am given stories I never would have thought of, and my work as an illustrator is always in support of the story. -Brian Selznick

Well, everything surprises me about the writing process because illustrating comes much more naturally to me than writing does. -Brian Selznick

As an author, you can't expect a movie to be an illustration of the book. If that's what you hope for, you shouldn't sell the rights. -Bernhard Schlink

My father brought me a box of books once when I was about three and a half or four. I remember the carton they were in and the covers with illustrations by Newell C. Wyeth. -Paula Fox

'Just looking at pictures' used to be considered cheating. No longer. The graphic novel is booming. Comics, heavily illustrated texts, books with no words are now accepted as reading. -Jon Scieszka

On the radio there's only a certain amount of artists: Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye, T-Pain, Lil Wayne, T.I., Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys. Other artists are achieving things that are really special, they have a hard time getting people's attention. Music has been just a little bit lacklustre. -Q-Tip

I come from a very illustrious line of divorces. We love to get divorced in my family. My mother and father have been married four times each – eight ceremonies with the best of intentions. -Joshua Ferris

I don't think there's an illustrator who's as good as a Titian or a Rembrandt… but then, Rembrandt was a bit of an illustrator on the quiet, you know? -Quentin Blake

I suppose illustration tends to live in the streets, rather than in the hermetically sealed atmosphere of the museum, and consequently it has come to be taken less seriously. -Quentin Blake

As an illustrator you need to understand the human body – but having looked at and understood nature, you must develop an ability to look away and capture the balance between what you've seen and what you imagine. -Quentin Blake

I cannot illustrate huge differences between male and female spiritualities except in their starting points, style and fascinations along the way. This is significant, however, and has huge pastoral implications: men must be challenged in the world of doing; women must be challenged in the world of relating. -Richard Rohr

I've learned a lot about stage-managing for illustration. Sometimes you have to delete characters from a scene just to keep from overcrowding the image. I've also learned to making big-scale design decisions early. -Scott Westerfeld

When I was young, my favorite picture book was 'Fletcher and Zenobia,' written by Edward Gorey and illustrated by Victoria Chess. It's long out of print now, but its mix of macabre humor and 1960s psychedelia made it a perfect children's book for the times. -Rick Riordan

'The Chicken Soup for the Soul' books are the result of over 20 years of teaching seminars and giving speeches. The first book contains all of the stories that I used in my seminars to illustrate the points that I wanted to make. -Jack Canfield

At the pinnacle of great design are products so gorgeous and lust-worthy that you want to lick them: a Porsche 911, Samsung's Luxia TV, an Eames lounge chair or anything by Loro Piana. -Gary Hamel

Little hearts, little souls give little lusts big power. Big hearts give little lusts little power. -John Piper

I really don't like art where you need to know so much theory to understand. If the theory is removed, it doesn't do anything. That means that this work is an illustration of theory, and I don't believe in the power of the work itself. -Marina Abramovic

Vampires and teens have a lot in common. Teens have surging hormones, vampires have surging blood lust. Teenagers think they're immortal. -P. C. Cast

Cultures, along with the religions that shape and nurture them, are value systems, sets of traditions and habits clustered around one or several languages, producing meaning: for the self, for the here and now, for the community, for life. -Tariq Ramadan

Fifty percent of all meaningful education takes place in the home. What do you share with your child? You share your interests. I was a book person. I read with my son. My wife is an artist. She dragged his little butt around to museums. He's an illustrator of children's books. -Walter Dean Myers

I have frequently noticed in myself a tendency to a diffuse style; a disposition to push my metaphors too far, employing a multitude of words to heighten the patness of the image, and so making of it a conceit rather than a metaphor, a fault copiously illustrated in the poetry of Cowley, Waller, Donne, and others of that ilk. -Sidney Lanier

I suppose I am one of life's naturally clumsy people; I don't drop stuff all the time, or break things, but I'm just generally a bit flustered. -Karen Gillan

I have the sort of temperament where I try not to over think things, I don't get flustered and I don't panic. I'm not overly neurotic. -Tom Bennett

I prefer the finesse of French humour. English humour is more scathing, more cruel, as illustrated by Monty Python and Little Britain. -Helen Mirren

I don't ever work in a way where something is an illustration of an event, but when something is occurring at the same time I see it as very informed by that. -Julie Mehretu

Every single model wants to be in 'Sports Illustrated,' and I feel extremely blessed to have that opportunity. -Katherine Webb

When you start writing a picture book, you have to write a manuscript that has enough language to prompt the illustrator to get his or her gears running, but then you end up having to cut it out because you don't want any of the language to be redundant to the pictures that are being drawn. -Daniel Handler

In any art, you don't know in advance what you want to say – it's revealed to you as you say it. That's the difference between art and illustration. -Aaron Siskind

I may be wrong, but the essential illustrative nature of most documentary photography, and the worship of the object per se, in our best nature photography, is not enough to satisfy the man of today, compounded as he is of Christ, Freud, and Marx. -Aaron Siskind

Fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez was a major part of my early career. -Andre Leon Talley

I really value words. I really try to illustrate and let people draw their own conclusions. -Rachel Corrie

People confuse ego, lust, insecurity with true love. -Simon Cowell

I used to draw and illustrate, but I don't do that anymore because I just like to write. I like to leave the illustrations to actual professional illustrators. -Meg Cabot

I am unable to watch the Olympics due to the blustering jingoism that drenches the event. Has England ever been quite so foul with patriotism? The 'dazzling royals' have, quite naturally, hi-jacked the Olympics for their own empirical needs, and no oppositional voice is allowed in the free press. -Morrissey

I was influenced by Ray Harryhausen and Lotte Reiniger, with her twitchy, cutout animation, which I happened to see at a very young age, but also by the Warner Bros. cartoons, 'Tom and Jerry,' and of course Disney. And also by Fellini's 'Giulietta of the Spirits' and Kurosawa's 'Ran.' And by other American illustrators and painters. -Henry Selick

I have been doodling since childhood. I have a passion for illustrating but cannot paint or colour for that matter. I illustrate what I am trying to communicate through my writing. My images are like drawings in a science text book. -Devdutt Pattanaik

In the long, nonillustrious history of white people pilfering African American culture, have I just perpetrated that? I'm motivated by a love for the music and by a love of the performances, and I really hope I haven't done anything bad. -Moby

We can make fun of hockey fans, but someone who enjoys Homer is indulging the same kind of vicarious bloodlust. -Steven Pinker

Art is the means by which we communicate what it feels like to be alive – in the past, that was mixed up with other illustrative duties, but that was still its central function that has been liberated in the art called modern. -Antony Gormley

Anyone having to do with medicine will have looked at Frank Netter's art work… I decided I would make him my model… getting my degree in medical illustration and then going on to medical school. -David Bolinsky

The luster of an experience can actually go up with time. So, learning to play a new instrument, learning a new language – those sorts of things will pay dividends for years or decades to come. -Dan Buettner

I've always been drawn to artists who paint for the everyday person. I love the American illustrators. -Thomas Kinkade

My real background was in art studies. At the beginning I was a painter, then I was this graphic designer, then I became an illustrator, then I was a comic artist. But for me it's a different way of expression, a different field of art. They're not separated; everything for me is related. -Marjane Satrapi

Pakistan is heir to an intellectual tradition of which the illustrious exponent was the poet and philosopher Mohammad Iqbal. He saw the future course for Islamic societies in a synthesis between adherence to the faith and adjustment to the modern age. -Benazir Bhutto

The conceptual artist Ai WeiWei illustrates the schizoid society that rapid change has produced – sometimes by reassembling Ming-style furniture into absurd and useless arrangements, or by carefully painting and antiquing a Coca-Cola logo on an ancient Chinese pot. -Arne Glimcher

I gave birth to my first son in April 1986. I thought it would be a good goal to get back in shape after having a baby if I ran the New York City Marathon. I ran in it November 1986. I had just shot the 'Sports Illustrated' swimsuit issue, so I was in great shape. -Kim Alexis

Cities are just a physical manifestation of your interactions, our interactions, and the clustering and grouping of individuals. -Geoffrey West

Jealousy can even be good for love. One partner may feel secretly flattered when the other is mildly jealous. And catching someone flirting with your beloved can spark the kind of lust and romance that reignites a relationship. -Helen Fisher

My name is Jarrett Krosoczka, and I write and illustrate books for children for a living. So I use my imagination as my full-time job. -Jarrett J. Krosoczka

I was a big 'MAD Magazine' fan when I was a kid, and I read a lot of horror comics – I illustrated as well. -Joe Lo Truglio

The genesis of a poem for me is usually a cluster of words. The only good metaphor I can think of is a scientific one: dipping a thread into a supersaturated solution to induce crystal formation. I don't think I solve problems in my poetry; I think I uncover the problems. -Margaret Atwood

People who lusted after Marilyn Monroe had no idea she stuttered. It is the secret of her sexiness, actually. -James Earl Jones

For some time it's been my habit to use images when preparing a speech: rather than write it down, I illustrate it. -Dario Fo

I was going to go to a four-year college and be an anthropologist or to an art school and be an illustrator when a friend convinced me to learn photography at the University of Southern California. Little did I know it was a school that taught you how to make movies! It had never occurred to me that I'd ever have any interest in filmmaking. -George Lucas

Many churches are measuring the wrong things. We measure things like attendance and giving, but we should be looking at more fundamental things like anger, contempt, honesty, and the degree to which people are under the thumb of their lusts. Those things can be counted, but not as easily as offerings. -Dallas Willard

Social media is itself as temporary as any social gathering, nightclub or party. It's the people that matter, not the venue. So when the trend leaders of one social niche or another decide the place everyone is socializing has lost its luster or, more important, its exclusivity, they move on to the next one, taking their followers with them. -Douglas Rushkoff

To my mind, the most successful and the best comic book illustrators are those who translate the real world into a consistent code. If you look at Jack Kirby or Steve Ditko, their drawings look nothing like the real world, but they are internally consistent. In terms of a comic book it can work just fine. -Dave Gibbons

People unacquainted with graphic novels, including journalists, tend to think of 'Watchmen' as a book by Alan Moore that happens to have some illustrations. And that does a disservice to the entire form. -Dave Gibbons

'Killer Joe' provides a lot of red meat for the theater. Pam MacKinnon is the perfect director to shepherd a group of actors who share a certain bloodlust. -Tracy Letts

If you really think that ambition, power, lust, desire are not as applicable in the media as in politics or on Wall Street or anywhere else, you're deluding yourself. -Beau Willimon

We all die, we all get sick, we all feel hunger and lust and pain, and therefore human life is consistent from one generation to the other. We all – most of us, anyway – want connections with other people and spend our lives looking for them. -Paul Auster

Nothing you'll read as breaking news will ever hold a candle to the sheer beauty of settled science. Textbook science has carefully phrased explanations for new students, math derived step by step, plenty of experiments as illustration, and test problems. -Eliezer Yudkowsky

If you lose your concentration singing harmony, then it's lackluster and no fun to watch. -Phil Everly

We don't need to illustrate music; music illustrates itself. -Twyla Tharp

I always respected Neil Armstrong highly. He was probably the coolest under pressure of anyone I ever had the privilege of flying with. I never saw him flustered. -Charles Duke

I have not changed; I am still the same girl I was fifty years ago and the same young woman I was in the seventies. I still lust for life, I am still ferociously independent, I still crave justice, and I fall madly in love easily. -Isabel Allende

'Sports Illustrated' does extremely minimal retouching. Other publications, however… phew. They do a lot; I've watched myself be Photoshopped before. It. Is. The. Worst. -Chrissy Teigen

Botticelli would have made a very good fashion photographer. He did eight heads instead of seven heads in a body, which is fashion illustration. -David Bailey

Luckily for me, my father had impeccable taste. No contemporary collector was he. His treasure trove of comics included gems such as 'Little Lulu,' 'Frontline Combat' and 'Classics Illustrated.' But the works that stood head and shoulders above the rest were Carl Barks's 'Donald Duck' and 'Uncle Scrooge' comics from the 1940s through the 1960s. -Jeff Kinney

There's no limitation on comics, nothing. From a logical standpoint, how can there be a limitation on comics? You can use any word in the dictionary. You can put them in any order you want to. You can use a vast variety of illustrating styles. People could do all sorts of things. -Harvey Pekar

Once I have the story in my head, I write it down. The illustrations usually come last. -Dav Pilkey

Taking dishes straight off the restaurant's menu and putting them into a cookbook doesn't work, because as a chef you have your own vision of what your food is, but you can't always explain it. Or you can't pick recipes that best illustrate who and where you are and what you're doing. And if the recipes don't work, you don't have a book. -Marcus Samuelsson

You can't see fear or lust; you can't photograph someone's anxieties, how disappointment feels. Photographs are approximations. -Duane Michals

Shimeji are those odd-looking clusters of small mushrooms you often find in so-called 'exotic' selections at the supermarket. They have an appealing firmness that is retained during light cooking. -Yotam Ottolenghi

Gene Colan was like no other artist of his generation. His ability to create dramatic, multi-valued tonal illustrations using straight India ink and board was unparalleled. -Jim Lee

Jerry Robinson illustrated some of the defining images of pop culture's greatest icons. As an artist myself, it's impossible not to feel humbled by his body of work. Everyone who loves comics owes Jerry a debt of gratitude for the rich legacy that he leaves behind. -Jim Lee

Social equity is based on justice; politics change on the opinion of the time. The black man's skin will be a mark of social inferiority so long as white men are conceited, ignorant, unjust, and prejudiced. You cannot legislate these qualities out of the white – you must steal them out by teaching, illustration, and example. -John Boyle O'Reilly

Dad was an amazing storyteller and illustrator, which he did in his spare time – very inspiring and dramatic. -Bat for Lashes

I find shopping too stressful. I get hot and flustered and irritated and feel sick after I've bought something. -Alison Goldfrapp

Music – not just the lyrics, but the music itself – expresses confused or illicit passions: rage, lust, envy, frustration, channeling these energies and creating an outlet for them. -Sarah Churchwell

I'm driven by history and our past. That's why I work in gold. It's in your veins. We've been lusting after gold since the beginning of time. God, glory, and gold. -Waris Ahluwalia

An unvirtuous citizenry tend to elect representatives who will pander to their covetous lustings. -Ezra Taft Benson

Usually in theater, the visual repeats the verbal. The visual dwindles into decoration. But I think with my eyes. For me, the visual is not an afterthought, not an illustration of the text. If it says the same thing as the words, why look? The visual must be so compelling that a deaf man would sit though the performance fascinated. -Robert Wilson

I started as a writer for magazines, and soon they asked me to illustrate my stories. I started from the bottom of the bottom. And I climbed the stairs, one by one. -Carine Roitfeld

A lot happened in Vancouver. It was my first Western experience. I learned English, which is my second language. I became very acquainted with Western culture. I had my first sewing machine when I was 9. I trained in fashion illustration when I was in school. -Jason Wu

When you speak to a lot of kids, as I've done over the years, you know what to say, keep them laughing, good illustrations and learn to read. -George Foreman

Nose-to-tail eating is not a bloodlust, testosterone-fueled offal hunt. It's common sense, and it's all good stuff. -Fergus Henderson

The lusts of this world leads us to fulfill our carnal need to be accepted, but as children of God we are already accepted by a Heavenly Father who is over and above all things. -Monica Johnson

Everyone who moves to New York City has a book or movie or song that epitomizes the place for them. For me, it's 'The Cricket in Times Square', written by George Selden and illustrated by Garth Williams. -Cathleen Schine

I tell everyone I interact with what I'm working on and let them bring me anecdotes that illustrate my themes. -Chuck Palahniuk

All the seven deadly sins are man's true nature. To be greedy. To be hateful. To have lust. Of course, you have to control them, but if you're made to feel guilty for being human, then you're going to be trapped in a never-ending sin-and-repent cycle that you can't escape from. -Marilyn Manson

One baby is a patient baby, and waits indefinitely until its mother is ready to feed it. The other baby is an impatient baby and cries lustily, screams and kicks and makes everybody unpleasant until it is fed. Well, we know perfectly well which baby is attended to first. That is the whole history of politics. -Emmeline Pankhurst

My father suffered from chronic wanderlust. When I was 14, he set out on a yearlong road trip across Europe and Asia – and decided to take me along for company. -Scott Anderson

Even if he was happier in Asia than he'd been in Latin America, the wanderlust still worked on my father's insides like a disease. One of the most recurrent memories of my childhood is of him sitting in his armchair in the evenings, poring over atlases the way other fathers read newspapers or books. -Scott Anderson

My favourite books series as a young child was the Frank L. Baum 'Wizard of Oz' series. They were beautifully written, oversized fat books with wonderful type and illustrations. -Anita Shreve

For me, the perfect film has no dialogue at all. It's purely a visual, emotional, visceral kind of experience. And I think one can create wonderful depth and meaning and communication without using words. I started out as an illustrator and a cartoonist and caricature artist, so for me the visual is primary. -Bill Plympton

I think that a lot of things are hard to read if you're not in the vocabulary flow of that particular discourse. I sometimes forget that even though the words I'm using are fairly ordinary words, the concepts around which they cluster, which are the long concepts of literary tradition, may not be familiar to an audience. -Helen Vendler

I lust after iPods or Mini Coopers not because they're unique, but because they've been so artfully made that I couldn't imagine doing it better myself. -Clive Thompson

The immigrant experience in 'Ilustrado' was only a small part of what I intended to be a broader look at the Filipino experience, even if that broader look was itself merely a specific perspective. -Miguel Syjuco

I have to believe that literature can effect change; otherwise, I would have no purpose in my life and would have wasted four years on 'Ilustrado.' -Miguel Syjuco

With 'Ilustrado,' I set out to change the way we read literature, and I think I failed spectacularly. In fact, I know I failed. In reaching further than I could, I may not have produced a life- or literature-changing book, but I did produce one I am proud of. -Miguel Syjuco

'Illustrado' is not an autobiography. Only the ideas are autobiographical; the ideas of bitterness, frustration, unchanging society, an individual lost, social awkwardness… The book satirises archetypes from across Filipino society, and I felt that the least I could do was offer myself up, too. -Miguel Syjuco

Learning to read clusters is not something your eyes do naturally. It takes constant practice. -Bill Cosby

Science has taught us, against all intuition, that apparently solid things like crystals and rocks are really almost entirely composed of empty space. And the familiar illustration is the nucleus of an atom is a fly in the middle of a sports stadium, and the next atom is in the next sports stadium. -Richard Dawkins

Wherever Mantle went in the great metropolis – Danny's Hideaway, the Latin Quarter, the '21' Club, the Stork Club, El Morocco, Toots Shor's – his preferred drink was waiting when he walked through the door. Reporters waited at his locker for monosyllabic bons mots. Boys clustered by the players' gate, hoping to touch him. -Jane Leavy

The first meeting-houses were often built in the valleys, in the meadow lands; for the dwelling-houses must be clustered around them, since the colonists were ordered by law to build their new homes within half a mile of the meeting-house. -Alice Morse Earle

Science, as illustrated by the printing press, the telegraph, the railway, is a double-edged sword. At the same moment that it puts an enormous power in the hands of the good man, it also offers an equal advantage to the evil disposed. -Richard Jefferies

At home I have a copy of the April 21, 1986, issue of 'Sports Illustrated.' I'm on the cover with the blurb, 'Can Lou Do It?' I'd just arrived at Notre Dame, and with spring football underway, I was the focal point of that week's coverage. -Lou Holtz

If there is honesty in your face, the battle is won. It doesn't have to be the most beautiful face in the world. The audience can relate to you then. They feel love, not lust, for you. -Preity Zinta

I never wanted to be a writer. I wanted to be a book illustrator. I used to hurry home from school and draw. -Natalie Babbitt

My husband wrote the story for my first book, but then he didn't want to do that anymore. So if I was going to go on being an illustrator, I had to start writing the stories, too. -Natalie Babbitt

I grew up wanting only to be an illustrator. I studied art at Laurel School in Cleveland and at Smith College. -Natalie Babbitt

Four hundred or so people lived in Knockemstiff in 1957, nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken calamity or another, be it lust or necessity or just plain ignorance. -Donald Ray Pollock

My theory is that the way you cope with the depths will ascertain the heights that you reach – they are intimately connected – and if you have a lust for life, you are also going to have a lust for death. -Sebastian Horsley

January is always a good month for behavioral economics: Few things illustrate self-control as vividly as New Year's resolutions. February is even better, though, because it lets us study why so many of those resolutions are broken. -Sendhil Mullainathan

The Feeding the 5000 campaign is inviting food businesses to sign up to the principles of the Food Waste Pyramid tool, which illustrates a simple set of steps that any food business can take to avoid and reduce food waste. -Tristram Stuart

The space elevator's not just another competitive technology, promoted by people who simply like the idea of diminishing the luster of the thrusters. It would open wide the doors to space. -Seth Shostak

If you take a galaxy and try to make it bigger, it becomes a cluster of galaxies, not a galaxy. If you try to make it smaller than that, it seems to blow itself apart. -Jeremiah P. Ostriker

A few years after 'Melrose Place,' when the luster of 'Melrose Place' wore off and what was left was just the stink, and I was just doing bad TV movies, that was a personal low point. I felt I needed to stop doing those, and I did. -Grant Show

I am what I want. What I seek to consume, possess, and achieve is a mirror that reflects my lusts and cravings, values and priorities, and moral boundaries or lack thereof. -Jane Velez-Mitchell

India is now changing and regaining its lustre, and it is coming of age. -Nita Ambani

After my first 'Sports Illustrated' cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. People deal with models like they are children. They think they can pull one over on you. I'm not a toy; I'm a human. I'm not here to be used. -Kate Upton

From the days of biplanes and silk scarves, the aviator has been the archetype of masculine glamour. Aviators have personified national ideals, from French elan to Soviet party discipline. They've inspired lust and admiration. They've turned sunglasses and short, utilitarian leather jackets into fashion statements. -Virginia Postrel

Most of us cluster somewhere in the middle of most statistical distributions. But there are lots of bell curves, and pretty much everyone is on a tail of at least one of them. We may collect strange memorabilia or read esoteric books, hold unusual religious beliefs or wear odd-sized shoes, suffer rare diseases or enjoy obscure movies. -Virginia Postrel

What is it about animation, graphics, illustrations, that create meaning? And this is an important question to ask and answer because the more we understand how the brain creates meaning, the better we can communicate, and, I also think, the better we can think and collaborate together. -Tom Wujec

The enjoyment we get from something is powerfully influenced by what we think that thing really is. This is true for intellectual pleasures, such as the appreciation of paintings and stories, and it is true as well for pleasures that seem simpler and more animalistic, such as the satisfaction of hunger and lust. -Paul Bloom

Not to make him blush, but any story illustrated by Mike Mignola does things that prose alone can't accomplish. The illustrations create mood and atmosphere, drawing the reader more deeply into the story than words could do on their own. -Christopher Golden

As anyone who has read 'Sports Illustrated's Steve Rushin knows, it's quite possible to write an unreadable column without being a TV pundit. But if you want to be a consistently good columnist, you can't be on television. -Stephen Rodrick

If we weren't born with anti-social passions – narcissism, envy, lust, meanness, greed, hunger for power, just to name the more obvious – why the need for so many laws, whether religious or secular, that govern behavior? -Dennis Prager

I was a subscriber to 'Sports Illustrated' like so many of us, and I was overwhelmed by a toxic mix of naivete and arrogance, and just thought to myself, 'I think I can write like this.' -Josh Elliott

When we do 'Sports Illustrated,' it starts the night before. You do a St. Tropez tan that night, then baby oil gel, then body color. -Chrissy Teigen

Who doesn't want to draw Batman or Superman? Everyone would like to be able to draw them. I've been really lucky when it comes to the characters that I get to illustrate. -Lee Bermejo

Since I'm so slow, I have to be fairly choosy about the projects I take on, and it can't be something that I'm only 'sort of' into. I knew that 'The Stand' would be an amazing challenge every month that would be a blast to illustrate. -Lee Bermejo

The lust and attraction are often a given in a romance novel – I want to dig into the elements of true friendship that form a foundation for a solid, gonna-last-forever romantic relationship. -Suzanne Brockmann

The Queen's wedding dress in 1947, there was some embroidery on the train which was definitely there to illustrate new dawn/post-war optimism, that sort of thing. -Kate Reardon

The first thing they gave me at 'Sports Illustrated' was a first-class air card. 'And oh, by the way, there's the petty cash drawer,' they told me. 'Take a few thousand dollars for expenses.' -Dan Jenkins

Aggregate aid is to the Ethiopian economy what Obama's fiscal stimulus was to the American economy: minus these injections, both economies would suffer catastrophically. The theatrical blustering of the Ethiopian government notwithstanding, donor countries have a make-or-break power over the Ethiopia's prosperity. -Eskinder Nega

I wound up studying art and design, got a job at Lonely Planet Publications as a designer, cartographer and illustrator. -Trudi Canavan

Innovations, instantly followed by a demented lust for them, now arrive with dizzying speed, not just daily, but in one-hour delivery slots. -Peter Baynham

Until the age of thirteen, I tortured the waiting worlds of book illustration and professional football by shilly-shallying over which of them was going to get the benefit of my inestimable talents. -Glen Duncan

As the years went by I became a writer and illustrator, although exclusively of fantasies. -Chris Van Allsburg

Twenty-first century war adds new risks: more and more often there are no front lines, no central command, no rules of engagement – only a chaotic collision of politics, power, faith and bloodlust. Victims are as likely to be civilians as soldiers. -Nancy Gibbs

There's a large cluster of stars that are orbiting the center of our galaxy. And by measuring the motion of stars, and in particular, their orbits, we can figure out whether or not there's a central black hole. -Andrea M. Ghez

I started thinking about how rain is depicted in illustrations. In comics that use gouache or watercolor, they use light blue, so I started using that color. -Lucien Smith

I am a hopeless romantic who falls in lust and gets in trouble. I love my work and am very productive, yet I always find time to play. -Maksim Chmerkovskiy

No lusting after your neighbor's house – or wife or servant or maid or ox or donkey. Don't set your heart on anything that is your neighbor's. -Moses

Anzac Day, it seems, must now be done with bluster, hoopla and media hypnotism. -Michael Leunig

Our country has been overtaken by murderous thugs… gangsters who lust after fortunes and power. -Cindy Sheehan

The lust to meet authors ranks low, I think, on the roll of holy appetites; but it is an authentic pang. -John Updike

I'm a classically trained painter, and I was an illustrator in New York working with Fortune 500s companies as well as the NBA and the Olympics. I first got into sculpting when I created a sculpture based on a painting I had done for the 1984 Olympics. -Richard MacDonald

There may be no issue that better illustrates the differences between Republicans and Democrats than energy. Consider it the 'all of the above' strategy for reducing gas prices, versus the 'all pain, no gain' plan for punishing those who emit carbon (like you). -Roy Blunt

My participation in the Art of the Olympians is a natural extension of my athletic career. I find creating a piece of art in many respects mirrors my long jumping efforts illustrating that hard work and inspiration will always be the foundation for success. -Bob Beamon

Canada Day comes and goes modestly every year. Sure, there are retail sales promotions and a long weekend. But there isn't bluster or commodity in Canadian celebration. Canada isn't big on bunting. Or jet flyovers, fireworks, marching bands or military pomp. -Rick Moranis

The writing is done on the computer, and the drawing is done by hand. I write, write, write, then I hit the illustration. -Stephan Pastis

When I teach the formal curriculum, I have the chance to think about it ahead of time. I can rehearse it. I can illustrate it with self-deprecating humor and humble-sounding personal disclosure. I can try to make it comes out just right. -John Ortberg

While it's typical to find steamed clam recipes which include a bit of bacon or sausage, you might not think of adding shredded ham hock, but it's another way to pair the lusty, smoky flavor of animal fat with the briny ocean flavor of shellfish. -Tom Douglas

I've always felt that I was a bit of an outsider to the British children's-book illustration scene, because I don't work in line and wash. -Anthony Browne

The illustrations in picture books are the first paintings most children see, and because of that, they are incredibly important. What we see and share at that age stays with us for life. -Anthony Browne

I'm impressed by the way some illustrators develop their images on computers, but it's too late for me to start, and I'm still in love with paper and paint and pencils. -Anthony Browne

After art college, I got a job as a medical illustrator, and I was pretty good. I had to imagine what was going on in the operations because the photographs just showed a mess. -Anthony Browne

One of my main decisions when accepting the job of Children's Laureate was that I must continue working on picture books. If I don't write and illustrate for some time, then I begin to question who I am. -Anthony Browne

I try to be as clear and simple as I can be in my illustrations so that the child can tell what is going on and what the emotions are. -Tomie dePaola

You have to be able to carry a conversation. I think after the initial attraction kind of dies down. The lust dies down. There has to be the thing that engages you. -Chris Pine

As an artist, illustrator, and photographer, most of my daily work was formed around the Art & Entertainment business, which was about packaging ideas that looked like they were crafted as artist ideas. In the distributed products, my artist credit was hidden inside the package of the artist or entertainment personality. -John Van Hamersveld

I was always interested in art at school, and after year twelve, senior year, I spent three years studying graphic design at college. I worked in advertising for two years but didn't like it much, then began doing a bit of illustration work for various publishers. -Graeme Base

I began illustrating children's books because of a growing disillusionment with the sort of work I was doing in the advertising industry. Book publishing offered me the chance to be far more creative. -Graeme Base

The requirements for illustrating an eight-page story are as different from that of an ensemble-cast mini-series as they are different from a solo ongoing. Whether or not they're named Captain America or Ruby Thursday matters less to me than whether or not their characterization is consistent and actions logical… storytelling concerns. -Stuart Immonen

I've just written a very gritty, non-magical take on the King Arthur legend, 'Here Lies Arthur,' and I'm currently toying with some other historical ideas, as well as working with the illustrator David Wyatt on some sequels to my Victorian space opera 'Larklight.' -Philip Reeve

I'm sure it came as no surprise to my friends and family when I became an illustrator and then a writer because, from about the age of five, I was one of those children who always had his nose in a book. -Philip Reeve

Even tiny children looking at a picture book are using their imaginations, gleaning clues from the images to understand what is happening, and perhaps using the throwaway details which the illustrator includes to add their own elements to the story. -Philip Reeve

How long a book tends to illustrate depends on the book. 'The Awful Aunty' took me 10 days. -Tony Ross

I don't relax. My main relaxation is meeting illustrators and publishers in restaurants and bars. -Tony Ross

An illustration is a visual editorial – it's just as nuanced. Everything that goes into it is a call you make: every color, every line weight, every angle. -Charles M. Blow

In my generation, if a man washes the dishes, the older women still tend to cluster around and coo and thank him and praise him. But if a woman washes the dishes, it's business as usual, even if both man and woman have tough office jobs. -Sherwood Smith

You don't put your head above the parapet and become a personality if you're an illustrator – it's not part of it; it's not possible. You are a servant to the story. -Robert Ingpen

A lot of illustrators have one central character and then they develop it, and all their books are based around it. But that was not my wish. I wanted to introduce children to the whole creative side of many aspects of life. -Brian Wildsmith

In England, there is a dividing line between artists and illustrators, who are thought inferior to painters. Well, that's absolute rubbish. Some of the most creative work is being done in children's books. In Japan, everything is art. They don't say painting is better than ceramics or dress design. -Brian Wildsmith

The strong argument for Heaven as a place centers in and clusters about Jesus. The man Jesus, bearing a man's form, the body He wore on earth, has a place assigned Him – a high place. -Edward McKendree Bounds

While the pulpit must hold to its unswerving loyalty to the Word of God, it must, at the same time, be loyal to the doctrine of prayer which that same Word illustrates and enforces upon mankind. -Edward McKendree Bounds

A single Dallas Cowboys football game uses up as much electricity as the entire nation of Liberia in those same three hours – one reason the globe, if looked at from a certain height, is a cluster of lights surrounded by enormous patches of dark. -Pico Iyer

Whatever one wants to say about the conduct of the Iraq War, going to war to remove Saddam Hussein in 2003 was a necessary act. It should and could have been done earlier, had not the Clinton White House, which understood the need, not wasted the opportunity through timidity and bluster. -Arthur L. Herman

Gollum is entirely based on the notion of addiction. The way that the ring pervades him, makes him craving, lustful, depletes him physically, psychologically and mentally. -Andy Serkis

Emotionally, I have no picture-book illustrated with memories of my first five years, but externally, I have impressions that possess a haunting vividness comparable only to the texture of dreams, when dreams are tumultuously alive. -E. F. Benson

I was at Ground Zero, and it was, to me, such a graphic illustration of what terrorism has done to our world. -Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

One component of the leading economic indicators is the yield curve. Bond investors keep a close eye on this, as it illustrates the spread or difference between long-term interest rates and short-term ones. -Kenneth Fisher

What makes San Francisco work is that high-value people like to live there and cluster. -James Coulter

Venture capital today is clustered in just a few locations – Silicon Valley, New York, Boston, and D.C. It's far from efficiently distributed and accessible. -Jose Ferreira

Whatever part I'm playing, I always carry with me something that's been used by an illustrious predecessor. I'm a great believer in a touching of hands. I have daggers belonging to Henry Irving and Sarah Siddons. -Donald Sinden

Everything we do these days – our lust for ever more comfort, pleasure, and distraction, our refusal to engage with the mandates of reality, our fidelity to cults of technology and limitless growth, our narcissistic national exceptionalism – all of this propels us toward the realm where souls abandon all hope. -James Howard Kunstler

Gravitation is the lust of the cosmos. -Mary Roach

He who gives away shall have real gain. He who subdues himself shall be free; he shall cease to be a slave of passions. The righteous man casts off evil, and by rooting out lust, bitterness, and illusion do we reach Nirvana. -Buddha

I like writing dialog but don't think I'd be much good at a screenplay. I once had to write a treatment for a novel of mine – a condition of its being optioned by a movie producer – and I turned out something pretty lackluster. So my inclination would be to stay out of the way of an experienced screenwriter. -Thomas Mallon

I love the idea of the 'vignette,' which is associated with the decorative, illustrative, small, and thus with the feminine, and thus easily maligned. I mean, Emily Dickinson wrote vignettes, right? -Kate Bernheimer

'Seize the Story' takes readers all the way through the process of writing fiction, from beginning to end. Every element, from dialogue to setting, plotting to character creation, is laid out and illustrated with examples. But the tone of the book is not that of a dry writing manual – it's definitely written for teenagers. -Victoria Hanley

All human states are organic brain states – happiness, sadness, fear, lust, dreaming, doing math problems and writing novels – and our brains are not static. -Siri Hustvedt

I've spent all my life playing roles that illustrious people have played before me. -Geraldine McEwan

I want to build friendships. I want to come across as being a good illustration of what Jesus is like. -Robert H. Schuller

No one can be a yogi, maintaining a state of mental equilibrium, free from inner involvement in planned desireful activities, unless he has renounced identification with his ego and its unsatisfiable lust for the fruits of actions. -Paramahansa Yogananda

I have copies of the books my grandfather illustrated for Scribner's in each house. I read those books all the time. -Jamie Wyeth

I never knew my grandfather. He died the year before I was born. But as a child, he did, of course, those wonderful illustrations, 'Treasure Island,' and whatnot. -Jamie Wyeth

In any given month, a large number of workers are being hired or are leaving their current jobs, illustrating the dynamism of the U.S. labor market. -Ben Bernanke

The French word for wanderlust or wandering is 'errance.' The etymology is the same as 'error.' So to wander is to make mistakes. In other words, to make mistakes, to make errors is sort of the idea of learning through trial and error, allowing the mistakes to be part of the process. -Robyn Davidson

My own ideas on the mechanism of catalytic phenomena were very different from those at one time commonly held, ideas which I no doubt owed to the influence of the illustrious teacher who had guided my first steps in chemistry nearly twenty years before – I refer, of course, to Berthelot. -Paul Sabatier

I guess I never grew up. I was still reading kids' books in high school and college. I was always interested in writing or illustrating children's books, and I started collecting out-of-print books when I was about 10 years old. -Michael Patrick Hearn

I have a hard time writing, and I usually have to put a timer at my desk and put it on for an hour. But I love to illustrate, and I can hardly stop myself. -Jan Brett

Book sales and teens reading is always a fantastic thing, but we should also be celebrating and consuming the huge wealth of U.K. and U.K.-based writing and illustrating talent. Authors such as Charlie Higson, Darren Shan, Holly Smale, Tanya Byrne, Catherine Johnson, Sophie Mckenzie, to name but a few. -Malorie Blackman

I would like to champion diverse forms like graphic novels and works told in verse and diverse writers and illustrators and diverse authors as well. -Malorie Blackman

Violence is inevitable in crime novels, but there are many different ways to tell a story. I use my characters' reactions to illustrate the worst moments rather than let readers witness them at first hand. -Michael Robotham

Illustrations can be a big window: a looking glass into the author's imagination. -Tony DiTerlizzi

Balancing an illustrator and author can be tricky, but I was an illustrator mostly before I wrote my books. -Tony DiTerlizzi

Usually, an author writes a manuscript that is handed in to the editor. The editor will then work with an art director to find just the right illustrator for the job, and off they go. Many times, the illustrator and author never meet. -Tony DiTerlizzi

I really love to make sweeping historical gestures that are like little illustrations of novels. -Kara Walker

For much of America, the all-American values depicted in Norman Rockwell's classic illustrations are idealistic. For those of us from Vermont, they're realistic. That's what we do. -Bernie Sanders

Writing is like a 'lust,' or like 'scratching when you itch.' Writing comes as a result of a very strong impulse, and when it does come, I, for one, must get it out. -C. S. Lewis

Sadly, bird illustration has always been an under-appreciated art. -John Burnside

I was about 12 when I first encountered 'The Moonstone' – or a Classics Illustrated version of it – digging through an old trunk in my grandfather's house on a rainy Bengali afternoon. -Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

I found that I was much more interested in writing and that I didn't like the illustrating at all. I had always been the hardest on myself when I drew and painted. I am not hard on myself when I write. I like what I write, so it is a much happier process. -Gail Carson Levine

Old Filey lies around the Ravine, a glacial gash running down to Coble Landing. This is the fishing Filey of centuries past, with neat little terraced cottages and a cluster of attractive 18th century houses. -David Hewson

Conversion is a change of masters. Will we not do as much for our new master, the Lord Jesus, as we did once for our old tyrant lusts? -Charles Spurgeon

Revenge, lust, ambition, pride, and self-will are too often exalted as the gods of man's idolatry; while holiness, peace, contentment, and humility are viewed as unworthy of a serious thought. -Charles Spurgeon

Editorial cartoons are about concept. The illustration is merely a vehicle to convey a point of view. We're here to protect and inform the public, to attack and repel those who do not agree with our long-term shared interest. -Michael Ramirez

I kept on writing and illustrating, for this is what I did well because I loved it. -Jean Craighead George

Fame legitimizes. Being conspicuous gets confused with being illustrious. -Nina Easton

Regional clustering of specific cancer types triggered some investigations on a potential role of infectious agents in these malignant proliferations. -Harald zur Hausen

When I first met my husband, he was sculpting Vilnius out of clay – a sort of Vilnius, anyhow: a map of an imaginary European city based on the Lithuanian capital – to illustrate his second novel. -Elizabeth McCracken

When I do my own books, I take it as more of my own confessional, but when I illustrate for other people, it is intriguing because I feel like I shouldn't be stepping too much into the limelight. It's like playing the piano while someone else is singing. -Peter Sis

I am afraid that people will think I re-illustrated 'The Little Prince,' when really, it was more a tribute to him as a dedicated pilot and a man who believed in the goodness of people. -Peter Sis

When I first seriously decided to become a cartoonist would have been '99/2000, right before 9/11. I've been writing and illustrating stories in the world post-9/11 since then, watching the world change around me. -Jeff Lemire

As a child, I copied Tenniel's illustrations from 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' obsessively, particularly his drawing of the white rabbit in waistcoat and frockcoat, umbrella tucked under one arm and a fob watch in paw, a look of suppressed panic in his eye. -Chris Riddell

As the Kindle's dread grip on digital publishing is challenged by tablet computers and Android smartphones, with their bright screens and high resolution, the need for illustration is growing. -Chris Riddell

In the digital future, texts will be annotated visually, animated and illustrated like never before. The austere 'prayer book' paper that permitted the space for Shepard's illustrations to Pepys' diaries is now being recreated in the digital era. -Chris Riddell

When I left art school and went in search of work, visiting publishers and showing them my drawings and illustrations, I was met with a polite and sometimes enthusiastic response but no commissions. -Chris Riddell

Roald Dahl worked with other illustrators, but it was only when he teamed up with Quentin Blake that the chemistry began to fizz. Quentin Blake is Britain's greatest living illustrator and has that special talent all the great illustrators have, of unobtrusive brilliance. -Chris Riddell

Go out and find a copy of 'The Shrinking Of Treehorn' and its sequel, 'Treehorn's Treasure.' Written by Florence Parry Heide and illustrated by the great Edward Gorey, master of the gothic and the macabre, these books are small masterpieces. -Chris Riddell

I'm not a painter by any stretch of the imagination; I'm a dyed-in-the-wool traditional illustrator, and I begin with black and white. If I need colour, I add it over the top. There's a calligraphic element to it… it's about the texture of lines on the page. -Chris Riddell

The writing process isn't something I'm in love with. I'm an illustrator who writes. -Chris Riddell

The computer is a tool, just like pencil or charcoal, allowing illustrators to manipulate images from their sketchbooks. -Chris Riddell

I'm interested in illustration in all its forms. Not only in books for children but in posters, prints and performance as a way of drawing people into books and stories. -Chris Riddell

The project that I did between 'Boxer & Saints' was 'The Shadow Hero,' which is illustrated by Sonny Liew, an artist who lives in Singapore. -Gene Luen Yang

I love writing picture books and story books because of the exciting, visual life that artists and illustrators give to them. And most of all, I love writing novels because of the inner, emotional journeys that they take me on. Hopefully, the reader comes with me! -Berlie Doherty

As an overruling providence may succeed our wishes, let us rear an offspring in every respect worthy to fill the most illustrious stations of their predecessors. -Deborah Sampson

Happy for America, happy for Europe, perhaps for the world when, on the delivery of Cornwallis's sword to the illustrious, the immortal Washington, or rather by his order, to the brave Lincoln, the sun of Liberty and Independence burst through a sable cloud, and his benign influence was, almost instantaneously, felt in our remotest corners! -Deborah Sampson

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

I hadn't thought specifically about doing graphic novels until a couple of my friends got contracts for them. Then I started picturing how various of my stories or poems would work in an illustrated format and thinking how cool that would be. -Sharon Shinn

Bringing GIS into schools gets the kids very excited and indirectly teaches them different components of STEM education. That's been illustrated at school after school. -Jack Dangermond

I'm always pretty overworked with commercial illustration or design or animation. -Dave Cooper

When I started writing and illustrating, I knew little of classic children's literature. My stories came from real life, from my concerns about what was happening in the world. -Michael Foreman

I've done a bit of teaching, but I gave it up – I felt uneasy teaching illustration to people who hadn't yet learned to draw. -Michael Foreman

The Bible is very resonant. It has everything: creation, betrayal, lust, poetry, prophecy, sacrifice. All great things are in the Bible, and all great writers have drawn from it and more than people realise, whether Shakespeare, Herman Melville or Bob Dylan. -Patti Smith

I'm fascinated by the concept of what I call 'clusters of creativity': the Brontes, the Waughs, families with several geniuses. I'm one of four; competition among siblings has to be a factor. -Nigel Hamilton

My brother, whom I adored, typed out a children's book illustrated by himself… at the age of 14. My sister, with whom I always shared a double bed, had that effortless superiority of someone six years older and anxious to show it. But we were each as shy as voles. It seemed safer to keep to each other's company. -Geraldine McCaughrean

I like working on stories where I can explore the darker corners of childhood without illustrations but with humor. -Kate Klise

I remember my first 'Sports Illustrated' shoot was with the photographer Walter Iooss, and Julie Campbell was the editor, and we were at the president of Mexico's private house in Cancun – this was before anything else that's now in Cancun even existed. And they told me to get a tan, so I spent all morning in the sun, and I was burnt. -Christie Brinkley

I wrote and illustrated a science experiment book called 'The Mad Professor'. -Mark Frauenfelder

I've never met any artist who illustrated one of my books, although I've corresponded briefly with one. I have always been impressed by the technical expertise involved in the covers, even if sometimes puzzled by the subject matter. -Jane Lindskold

I love print fiction, but sometimes when I'm reading a good graphic novel or manga, I find myself envying those who work in an illustrated format. -Jane Lindskold

I'm kind of the model that everyone thought would always be the Guess, 'Sports Illustrated' girl. Then, when I started to do high fashion stuff… people were like, 'Oh, so we can have a girl with, like, thighs and a butt in a Tom Ford campaign. Cool.' -Gigi Hadid

I'm 19 now, and I go to The New School in New York, where I study Criminal Psychology. My first week of second semester was during Fashion Week when my first editorials in 'CR Fashion Book' and 'Sports Illustrated' came out. It was crazy! -Gigi Hadid

I'm really getting into acting and TV. 'Sports Illustrated' is a big, iconic brand I'd like to work for, too. But TV and acting is really funny and a bit more exciting than shooting all the time. -Charlotte McKinney

A teacher told my mother that I would never become successful, which illustrates the difficulty of long-run forecasting on inadequate data. -Clive Granger

When a New York attorney general brings a lawsuit against a prominent business person, there are two things you can count on out of that office – lots of political bluster and little accountability. -Kenneth Langone

'War and Peas' by Michael Foreman, one of the great British children's illustrators. His watercolours are so lovely you could almost eat them, just as members of the target audience have been trying to do for decades. -Tobias Hill

More than conventional picture books, the notebook format allows me to leap from words to images, and this free-flowing back-and-forth inspires my best work. It reflects the way I think – sometimes visually, sometimes verbally – with the pictures not there just to illustrate the text but to replace it, to tell their own story. -Marissa Moss

When Rose McDermott, a professor of political science at Brown University, got divorced two years ago, she noticed that a cluster of her friends were splitting up at around the same time. -Katie Hafner

I am the first to point out that I really am not kind to illustrators. By that, I mean I really don't give that much to work with. -James A. Moore

The strong should always permit the weak and aggrieved to talk, to bluster, and scold without taking offence; and if we had so acted, and exercised proper skill in the management of our affairs, Mexico and ourselves would, by this time, have quietly and peaceably settled all difficulties and been good friends. -John C. Calhoun

May these happy United States attain that complete splendour and prosperity which will illustrate the blessings of their government, and for ages to come rejoice the departed souls of their founders! -Marquis de Lafayette

In terms of graphic versus prose, I could probably do a lecture on that topic. But what stood out most was the difference in pacing the language and resulting scenes. One illustration can do so much for the reader. -Cynthia Leitich Smith

I am a big fan of the web comic 'Strong Female Protagonist,' illustrated by Molly Ostertag. -Alethea Kontis

'Enchanted' illustrates how impractical fairy-tale ideals are in the World As We Know It, and yet, Giselle's unabashed optimism always seems to magically find its time and place. -Alethea Kontis

When you make illustrations, you're supposed to have a subtext; you're not just communicating words – you're actually adding another story altogether. -Peggy Rathmann

Art is for the elite because it has a very high price-point of entry. And when one is in that social strata, they look down at illustrators because they just draw things directly for a few hundred dollars, and that's seen as being a bit grubby. Galleries allow artists to stay relatively divorced from the financial aspects of their trade. -Molly Crabapple

I am lucky because I do fine art, and that is half of my living. And then illustration provides the other half. -Molly Crabapple

I actually started out as a writer and then converted to illustration because I realised that there was a dearth of good illustrators in genre fiction, at least in Australia at that time. -Shaun Tan

The text illustrates the pictures – it provides a connective tissue for me. I usually refine the text last, partly because pictures are harder to do, so it's easier to edit words – I use text as grout in between the tiles of the pictures. -Shaun Tan

Like all of my previous work – which I also hope is a bit hard to categorise – 'The Oopsatoreum' is an illustrated book, so a combination of words and pictures that tell a kind of story. -Shaun Tan

Illustrating is more about communicating specific ideas to a reader. Painting is more like pure science, more about the act of painting. -Shaun Tan

It's not unusual for socio-economic, even racial or ethnic, groups to cluster. -Jay Parini

The desire from those abroad to join our ranks is overwhelming. Tens of millions have applied for the limited amount of diversity visas available every year, illustrating the demand and need to maintain this vital path to American citizenship. -Cedric Richmond

For a long time, I was brilliantly achieving drawings that were inert, suffocating and dark. If ever you need illustrations that are inert, suffocating and dark, I know how to do them. -Chris Raschka

Medieval alchemists, despite their lust for gold, considered mercury the most potent and poetic substance in the universe. As a child, I would have agreed with them. -Sam Kean

People adored Element 13's color and luster, which reminded them of the sparkle of gold and silver – a brand-new precious metal. In fact, aluminum became more precious than gold and silver in the 19th century because it was harder to obtain. -Sam Kean

The Golden State has lost its luster. We've got to change our tax system and how we fund government. We're going to have to make it easier to create jobs in California, incentivize manufacturing, really put more in the way of investment in our public school system and our institutions of higher learning if we're going to stay the Golden State. -Antonio Villaraigosa

My autobiography is a digressive illustration and exemplification of what race has meant in the world in the 19th and 20th centuries. -W. E. B. Du Bois

It is quite common to meet people that live a few kilometers away from Mexico and that have never been there. We need to revive on many levels an illustrious desire to get to know the world, to learn another language, to understand and create empathy with people that live a few kilometers away from us. It's never late to do this. -Gael Garcia Bernal

I'm sometimes a cartoonist, and there's an audience for that, and I'm sometimes an illustrator, and there's an audience for that. -Adrian Tomine

There have been a handful of assignments over the years that I've had to turn down due to time constraints, and I was fairly envious when I saw the finished product, beautifully illustrated by someone else. -Adrian Tomine

My daughters are in kindergarten and second grade, so many of the stories they tell, write, or illustrate are about each other and our dog, Buster. -Doreen Cronin

One of Britain's big problems throughout history has been that we lust after consumer goods from elsewhere, but our friends overseas have been less enthusiastic about buying things we produce. -Kate Williams

I just like to have cereal in the morning, but it'll be those cluster things – it's a bit random – and through the day, I like just pasta, plain pasta with a bit of sauce on it, never too much in case I get a bad belly… and jelly just before I go on for a bit of energy! -Jade Jones

I hope for quick, fluent copy and memorable pictures. The words would not 'describe' the pictures; the pictures would not 'illustrate' the words. Together, they would carry a stamp and tell a story. -Muriel Rukeyser

You're never the same after you run the Iditarod, and I still lust to go out and run with dogs, even though I know that I shouldn't. But I'd give just about anything to be able to do it again. To see the horizon again from the back of a dog team would be wonderful. -Gary Paulsen

The Laffer Curve illustrates the basic idea that changes in tax rates have two effects on tax revenues: the arithmetic effect and the economic effect. -Arthur Laffer

I used the so-called Laffer Curve all the time in my classes and with anyone else who would listen to me to illustrate the trade-off between tax rates and tax revenues. -Arthur Laffer

I am amused when somebody tries to illustrate the first email using a modern keyboard and a finger reaching for the '2' key. Wrong key! The @ was on the 'P' key. -Ray Tomlinson

Whenever the kindly uncles and aunts came over for a cup of tea and asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, it was always the same: an 'authoress', and illustrate my own books. -Cecilia Dart-Thornton

If an actor only comes alive when he has lines to say, it doesn't work, and the same goes for illustrated characters. -Helen Craig

I grew up under the spell of London. Illustrator Kerry Lee's evocative 1950 wall map of the city hung above our breakfast table at home in Canada. Over my corn flakes, I traced the capital's high roads and medieval alleys. -Rory MacLean

Forth & Towne was a great test of a promising concept and an illustration of the innovative risks you need to take in our business. We made the tough decision to close the brand and focus our efforts on stabilizing the existing businesses. -Robert J. Fisher

I always collect images, maybe because I was working with historic material – but even if I were working with contemporary material, I would do the same thing. I keep a kind of index of them while I'm working. I find them incredibly useful, not so much to illustrate a time, but to give some sense of the feeling of a time. -Rachel Kushner

If one gains an interest in the history of the earth, he is quite sure to gain an interest in the history of the life on the earth. If the former illustrates the theory of development, so must the latter. The geologist is pretty sure to be an evolutionist. -John Burroughs

In the summer of 1866, as Leo Tolstoy prepared for his serialized novel 'War and Peace' to be published as a single volume, he wrote to illustrator Mikhail Bashilov, hoping to commission drawings for the new edition of the novel, which he referred to by its original title,1805. -Alexander Chee

I get asked a lot if I'd want to get into live-action movies, and the answer, honestly, is 'no.' I'm an illustrator, and I think animation is an extension of that way of expressing myself. That's not to say I'd never make a live-action movie, but I don't strive for it. -Chris Renaud

I'll come out and say it because no one else will: French gross-out humor is the best. Particularly the illustrated variety. -Euny Hong

The lucky village of Sodeto, in the kingdom of Aragon, is a cluster of sensible houses spackled together off the main road, curtained behind a pine copse. -Michael Paterniti

My interest as an artist is to illuminate the lives of black folks. I definitely am focused on films that illustrate all that we are and all our nuance and all our complicated beauty and mess, and when you're telling those stories, you gotta have black actors. -Ava DuVernay

I made the cover of 'Sports Illustrated,' 'Newsweek' and 'Time' all in one week, and I didn't even know what that meant. -Nadia Comaneci

'Ida' doesn't set out to explain history. That's not what it's about. The story is focused on very concrete and complex characters who are full of humanity with all its paradoxes. They're not pawns used to illustrate some version of history or an ideology. -Pawel Pawlikowski

The ostensible subject of my photographs may be motion, but the subtext is time. A dancer's movements illustrate the passage of time, giving it a substance, materiality, and space. In my photographs, time is stopped, a split second becomes an eternity, and an ephemeral moment is solid as sculpture. -Lois Greenfield

I'm drawn to silhouettes because of their emblematic rather than their illustrational quality. I see them as shapes, allowing an image to become an abstraction and for pure painting to take place. -Donald Baechler

The Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford is an astonishing building, designed by Christopher Wren. Its painted ceiling has just been restored so that the darkish miasma that was Robert Streeter's original allegory of truth and light striking the university is now bright with playful cherubs and lustrous clouds. -Justin Cartwright

Before I began concentrating on writing, in my free time I was an artist, making and selling etchings illustrating stories based on my readings in classical literature. -Adrienne Mayor

A city, far from being a cluster of buildings, is actually a sequence of spaces enclosed and defined by buildings. -I. M. Pei

I've noticed a lot of people are very bold and blustery on Twitter because it's easy to do that with the poison keyboard and a hundred and forty characters. -Kellyanne Conway

The aggregate of everybody's emotion, it's such a powerful thing. You can see it in the Trump rallies, where people – I just know, in their living rooms, would be better people – are driven to the worst possibilities by the bloodlust in a crowd. It just gets ginned up, and they're outside of themselves. -Meryl Streep

Food is a great literary theme. Food in eternity, food and sex, food and lust. Food is a part of the whole of life. Food is not separate. -Jim Harrison

I'm not angry; I write about angry characters. When I'm doing that, I'm happy. Just like when I'm writing about Mickey Sabbath being lustful, I'm not feeling lustful; I'm happy. -Philip Roth

I just don't think of myself as an actor much at all, so I don't lust after any particular roles. -Ron Howard

Things like 'mad as a hatter' or 'grinning like a Cheshire cat', are so powerful that music and songs incorporate the imagery. Writers, artists, illustrators, a lot of them have incorporated that. -Tim Burton

My father spent his entire early career as an illustrator for comic books: EC Comics like 'Tales from the Crypt' and 'Creepshow,' then moving on to such magazines as 'Mad' and 'Weird Science.' -Dean Kamen

I work for ABC television; I have my own syndicated TV series. I've been on the cover of 'Time Magazine' and on the cover of 'Sports Illustrated' five times. -Reggie Jackson

I wrote 'And Two Boys Booed' several years ago, but we really chased around looking for the perfect illustrator, so it took a while. -Judith Viorst

At Cornell University, my professor of European literature, Vladimir Nabokov, changed the way I read and the way I write. Words could paint pictures, I learned from him. Choosing the right word, and the right word order, he illustrated, could make an enormous difference in conveying an image or an idea. -Ruth Bader Ginsburg

If Mr. Obama could walk across the Peace Bridge in Hiroshima – whose balustrades were designed by the Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi as a reminder both of his ties to East and West and of what humans do to one another out of hatred – it would be both a real and a symbolic step toward creating a world that knows no fear of nuclear threat. -Issey Miyake

The danger of dioxins in our environment, our food chain, and our bodies is difficult to illustrate, since they are not visible to the naked eye. My time in Vietnam allowed me to see the result of large quantities of them and therefore understand better the insidiousness of the smaller quantities that have found their way into our lives and bodies. -Jeremy Irons

I inhaled books. I loved Classics Illustrated comic books. These were books that I could afford to buy after I turned in pop bottles for change. 'The Prince and the Pauper,' 'Robinson Crusoe,' 'A Journey to the Center of the Earth.' Male narratives filled with adventure and self-discovery. -Jewell Parker Rhodes

My brain is a big cluster of stuff. It moves quickly and loses focus quickly, so I need many projects to keep me stimulated – it's a luxury to be able to do lots of different things: style, write, present, DJ or just consult. It can't be any other way; I think I would shrivel up and fall asleep forever. -Alexa Chung

To build a character like Henry Warnimont required a few weeks and months of work. It turned out he was basically a very kind and generous man, which he covered up with his surface gruffness and surface bluster. And the kind of hopeless quality, that 'everything goes wrong' kind of thing. -George Gaynes

The class barricades have been stormed by the forces of a broad culture, which is made up of clusters of individuals who have decided for themselves what they will be in society. -Melvyn Bragg

With clear definitions and a taxonomy that illustrates their relationships, the Inventure Cycle defines the pathway from inspiration to implementation. This framework captures the skills, attitudes, and actions that are necessary to foster innovation and to bring breakthrough ideas to the world. -Steve Blank

L.A. is a really good home base. I've grown up here, and so sometimes I have wanderlust even though I tour. You think it would be cured by touring, but sometimes I feel like I want to be somewhere else. -Banks

The applause of his native land is the richest reward to which the patriot ever aspires. It is this for which 'he bears to live or dares to die.' It is the high incentive to those achievements which illustrate the page of history and give to poetry its brightest charm. -John Tyler

I think the thing that we agreed to so many years ago, actually, was that the music didn't have to support the dance nor the dance illustrate the music, but they could be two things going on at the same time. -Merce Cunningham

I guess blustery liberal Republicans flock together. -Ken Cuccinelli

I'm a different person who's not my father or my mother. I want to be treated differently from them. I am myself, Twinkle Khanna. I am proud of being the daughter of such illustrious parents, but I would not like to be compared with them time and again. -Twinkle Khanna

'Mrs Funnybones' is based and structured around my columns, and it's about how a modern woman looks at India and how India looks right back at her. Since I have a weakness for illustrations, there are also a few funny illustrations in there as well. -Twinkle Khanna

The Democratic Media Complex, in its pursuit of Orwellian hate-crime legislation, reparations, and sundry non-ameliorative resolutions to America's troubled racial past, pursues its victims with blood lust. -Andrew Breitbart

If I met Jack Nicholson, I would probably get a little flustered. Not going to lie. I've watched his movies since I was so young. Such a fan. -Maika Monroe

We should educate all Party members and other working people to become genuine patriots who first love their parents, spouses and children and further sincerely shed sweat and dedicate their all to spruce up their homes, villages and workplaces so that they are better than others' and add lustre to their country, their motherland. -Kim Jong-un

Sports play a very important role in consolidating the national strength, adding lustre to the country's prestige and honour, inspiring people with national dignity and pride, and imbuing the whole society with revolutionary mettle. -Kim Jong-un

I would say there is probably a little bit of me in each character. But Purrscilla is a lot like me because she is very into glam and glitz and jewelry and everything very girly. And some of the jewelry in the illustration is even my own jewelry. But I'm not a cat fan – that's the only thing! I'm a dog person. -Lisa Frank

When there were first rumors of us going after LeBron, some fans wondered how we could do that after all that happened. But after the 'Sports Illustrated' letter, every fan is thrilled to have him back. That was so heartfelt. -Dan Gilbert

The Resurrection miracle is nothing to you and me if it is only an event of eighteen centuries bygone. Unless we can live the immortal life – unless we can receive God to his own home in these hearts of ours – the texts are nothing to us unless these daily lives illustrate them. -Edward Everett Hale

I've always had wanderlust to try and do different things, but I always return to the music of the Carter family. -Carlene Carter

I have this lust for the so-called South Seas. I would like to explore every corner of the Pacific. You know the song: 'To everything turn, turn, turn, there is a season.' It's just time. -Bob Iger

Research indicates that a pause tends to be a signal that a cluster of deceptive cues is on its way. This is a key reason why voters routinely associate Trump with authenticity: He rarely pauses. -Pamela Meyer

You can really walk around a song and completely, if it's a good song, look at it from a lot of different angles. Johnny Cash with Rick Rubin illustrated that perfectly. -Chris Cornell

I believe that a good comic script can succeed despite being drawn badly, but that a bad script can't be saved by good art. Of course, great writing and great illustration makes for a great comic 100 percent of the time. -Ryan North

There's a very curious and – and almost sadistic lust for blood that overcomes the concert listener, and there's a waiting for it to happen: a waiting for the horn to fluff; a waiting for the strings to become ragged; a waiting for the conductor to forget the subdivide, you know? And it's dreadful! -Glenn Gould

I started my career as a swimsuit model. My first big break in America was 2007, 'Sports Illustrated' Swimsuit Issue. -Irina Shayk

I have done 'Sports Illustrated,' but I don't regret it because it portrayed me in a positive way – as an athlete. -Alex Morgan

Even though there wasn't much damage, it's a disgrace that the skies over the imperial capital should have been defiled without a single enemy plane being shot down. It provides a regrettably graphic illustration of the saying that a bungling attack is better than the most skillful defense. -Isoroku Yamamoto

To compare writing an article for 'Sports Illustrated' to doing a piece for 'Real Sports', the article, it was all me. You know, I'm out there by myself with my pad and pencil. 'Real Sports,' I've got a producer, an assistant producer, and cameramen. It's an individual game versus a team game. -Frank Deford

In the summer of 1963, my second with 'Sports Illustrated,' Jerry Tax, the basketball editor, got the Celtics' Frank Ramsey, the NBA's first famous sixth man, to do a piece for the magazine revealing some of the devious little tricks of his trade. Things like surreptitiously holding an opponent's shorts – nickel-and-dime stuff. -Frank Deford

There's a shot that I designed to try and illustrate the scale of the Death Star that's sort of framed in close on the equatorial trench as Krennic's ship is leaving. The camera's pulling back, and you start with it framed so you can kind of see those docking bays that are in that trench. -John Knoll

'The Godfather' illustrated the family values – the reality that it was really a family thing, honor and tradition. It wasn't just a single-dimension thing. -Frank Vincent

If it weren't for the Internet, WWE probably wouldn't even know my name. If I had to rely on 'Pro Wrestling Illustrated' to get my name out there, it would have been a much more difficult road. -Daniel Bryan

I was illustrating, and I was cleaning people's houses; I was doing whatever I could to take care of my kid as a single parent. -Emil Ferris

As the 2016 campaign has graphically illustrated, Trump doesn't treat rivals gently. Testifying before a congressional committee in 1993, he began with his rote protestations of friendship. -Franklin Foer

To me, Wonderlust is all about living life with a sense of adventure. I'm so honoured; I love being a Michael Kors woman. -Lily Aldridge

I never knew what my role in art was, because I was such a deep appreciator and such a passionate appreciator. But every time I would try to sit down and be an illustrator or painter, it was just not my best use. -Alexa Hirschfeld

Conor McGregor – this guy is so offensive minded and never on the defense that whenever you put him on the defense, he gets so flustered and so upset. -Eddie Alvarez

'12 Years A Slave' is a film that is beautifully shot, wonderfully acted, and told in a compelling manner. However, there are some questions, in my opinion, as to its importance. Paramount among those questions is, What does this scenario illustrate that we didn't know or haven't seen before? And why does such a film garner such popularity? -Joe Morton

I think I've had an illustrious career. -Paul Pierce

Neither of my parents are involved in theater or acting, but they are very artistic. My mom is a painter; she's an artist. She went to school for fashion illustration. My father is into collecting antiques and fine wine, so they're both really creative people. -Elena Kampouris

Spirituality is a growth industry. And nothing illustrates that better than the burgeoning crop of colossal sanctuaries sprouting up in suburbs across the land. -Tahl Raz

Put your leaders in stressful scenarios. Make them figure out solutions under pressure. See if you can make them frustrated, angry, and flustered, and then demand decisive leadership from them. They will be challenged at first, but they will get better over time. -Jocko Willink

Moliere exaggerates common vices of mankind: lust, greed, misanthropy, hypocrisy. We all have a touch of these. -Dakin Matthews

Of the thousands of ways that humans differ from one another, turns out there's this one cluster of traits called conscientiousness that predict a whole host of positive life outcomes, such as longevity over our health, life satisfaction. -Daniel Levitin

More and more, as I grow older, I find myself looking for inspiration in painting, illustration, videogames, and old movies. -Guillermo del Toro

Men are naturally barbarians, and that will remain forever. The passion, the love, and the lust is intensifying with time. -Fawad Khan

One of the things you learn as an actor is that human beings are capable of almost anything. I'm sort of in the business of illustrating that fact. -John Lithgow

I didn't go to school for illustration. I did larger pieces, mostly drawings and paintings, and minored in video, but when I moved to N.Y.C., I didn't have a studio space anymore and downsized to my desk and started illustrating. I started a greeting card company and sold cards all over the city. -Abbi Jacobson

I love Maira Kalman. She's an amazing illustrator and writer. I've loved her since I was in college, but when I moved to New York and experienced the same city she was drawing and writing about, I developed a whole new appreciation. Her work made me observe everything so much deeper and more joyfully. -Abbi Jacobson

When I give talks, I often quote from a button I received at a Google event: Always Be Creative. I use it to illustrate how important creativity is in technology and business. -Harper Reed

'Sports Illustrated' decided to have curvy women not only in their magazine but on the cover of their magazine. Now, that means size diversity is here, and it's real, and it's not a trend. -Ashley Graham

I wasn't put on the cover of 'Sports Illustrated' as a plus-size model; I was put on the cover of 'Sports Illustrated' as a model, as a rookie, as Ashley Graham. -Ashley Graham

Democrats cluster in cities, and Republicans don't. -James Carville

Some of the best scenes in drama take almost no time – helping to illustrate that life-changing events in real life often occur in a split second, after which nothing is ever the same. -Lionel Shriver

The commitment to put an end to illegal deforestation and develop sustainable alternatives for commodities like palm oil and soy, for example, is an inspiring illustration of what can be achieved when governments and industry partners come together determined to bring about transformational market-wide changes. -Paul Polman

I think Donald knows climate change is a serious threat – but he only cares about protecting his luxury coastal properties, not the rest of America. Observing his actions as they relate to his business interests offers the best insight into the man behind the bluster. -Tom Steyer

To me, this is one of the great things about writing kids' books: the illustrations. -Kate DiCamillo

All of the characters at Marvel were my ideas, but the ideas meant nothing unless I had somebody who could illustrate it. -Stan Lee

Trump errs on the side of bluster sometimes for effect, but I don't think that the people who voted for him, most of them, would ever be for not caring for immigrants or refugees. People in the church know it's our obligation. -Eric Metaxas

The reason I love comics and have collected them for 37 years is because I always wanted to be an illustrator and a writer – and comics are really the perfect blend of those two mediums. -Tim Miller

When gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals come out, their friends and families, for the most part, understand what it feels like to love and to lust. Cisgender people have more of a challenge when it comes to transgender identities. I discovered that analogy of homesickness in conversations with my parents, in trying to bridge that empathy divide. -Sarah McBride

Since taking office, Donald Trump and Mike Pence have governed the exact same way they campaigned, which is with bigotry and with bluster, and that includes toward the LGBTQ community. -Sarah McBride

I am a huge fan of all things Mondo, and when the opportunity to illustrate a Mondo print celebrating the 'Deadpool' film presented itself, I leapt at the chance! -Rob Liefeld

Novelists lie for a living – what is a novel, after all, but an assembly of fibs paradoxically meant to illustrate something true? – but generally see a distinction between lying on the page and lying off it. -Jonathan Miles

I think architects have a major role in being responsible for illustrating what the future could be. Because of the very strong political and commercial climate, many architects are trying very hard to solve everyday issues, to respond to the authorities. -Ma Yansong

Usually, you come into it, and there's half a dozen different views or angles on what different people are wanting to see, from the producer to the director to the writers to the actors. I think 'Pacific Rim' has been an example of something that illustrates what you get if everyone is driving towards a common purpose. -Travis Beacham

I had almost nothing published until I had something published in 'Sports Illustrated.' I started there as a fact-checker two weeks after I got out of college and was there for almost 20 years. -Steve Rushin

I had started writing for 'Sports Illustrated,' which was really my dream job growing up. But the writing probably read like I was auditioning to write for 'Letterman' or '70s-era Carson. -Steve Rushin

The first words Rebecca Lobo ever spoke to me when we met in a Manhattan bar in 2001 were, 'Aren't you the guy who just mocked women's basketball in 'Sports Illustrated'?' I blushed, broke out in a flop sweat and said, 'Yes.' -Steve Rushin

When I finally discovered the 'Sports Illustrated' swimsuit issue, I browsed through archives and saw a picture of an incredibly stunning model, Damaris Lewis. Her images inspired me, and I imagined being in the magazine myself. Never in a million years did I dream it would actually happen. -Philomena Kwao

As a woman of color and curve model, I never imagined when I started modeling that I would be featured in the pages of 'Sports Illustrated.' -Philomena Kwao

'Sports Illustrated' has set the standard for what a swimsuit model should be. For a magazine that has that much influence to include models of different body types on their pages shows that they're breaking down old beauty ideals while opening the doors of diversity and inclusivity. -Philomena Kwao

Can fiction teach us? Absolutely. Fiction has the power to illustrate place, era, and atmosphere in vivid detail. But it is not Anthropology for Dummies. -Celeste Ng

I was freelance proof-reading, freelance editing, creating illustrated slides for doctors' presentations – just so I'd have enough money to take the time to write. That's how I got by. -Celeste Ng

Averages are useful because many traits, behaviors, and outcomes are distributed in a bell-shaped curve, with most results clustered around the middle and a much smaller group of outliers at the high and low ends. -Stephanie Coontz

In 1957, I was studying the Pleiades star cluster at Harvard University's radio observatory. On one occasion, we saw an added feature in the data. It turned out to be an amateur radio enthusiast near the observatory, but at the time, I thought we had detected clear evidence of another civilisation. -Frank Drake

In the future, I'd like to continue being honest with myself and admit when I'd be better off asking someone else to illustrate my writing. -Adam Rex

The great children's author and illustrator Shirley Hughes marks her 90th birthday by appearing as Michael Berkeley's guest in 'Private Passions'. -David Hepworth

I was the worst-dressed person in Scranton. I was a total nerd. Obviously, I got picked on, but I was also able to find my own cluster of friends, and I think when that happens, you get by just fine. -Stephen Karam

I think there's art, and then there's illustration. Art comes from a deeper place. -Brian Stelfreeze

Illustration is commercial. It's work that we produce, and I think what you can do is you can draw from the pool of art, but most of it comes from a pool of knowledge. -Brian Stelfreeze

The Black Watch is one of the most illustrious regiments. They've been at the vanguard of British military operations for 400 years. Something they're very proud of is what they call 'The Golden Thread,' where you can trace a line back from them to the first Black Watch soldiers who were from the Highlands, spoke Gaelic, and wore the kilt. -John Tiffany

I went to Maryland Institute College of Art, and I studied illustration there. -Noelle Stevenson

I was going to be a storybook illustrator or an editorial illustrator. I ended up in a comics class by mistake because all the others were full, so I was like 'I'll stay for one class, and then I'll go take something else, because I don't care about comics.' I got pulled in really fast; I discovered I had a voice in comics that I didn't know I had. -Noelle Stevenson

Chaos does not unify. Chaos only serves the most extreme elements of society that seek to destabilize any semblance of order to fulfill their selfish lust for power. -Daniel Lubetzky

My mom was a biological illustrator for a time before computers replaced that job. -Jeff Vandermeer

Tove Jansson was the most successful Finnish illustrator and writer of children's books of her day, and she was the most widely read Finn abroad. She began her life as an artist early – she had her first drawing published at fifteen. -Sheila Heti

Every volcano is a powerful illustration of God's character. He is a Vesuvius of goodness, life, and energy. -Reinhard Bonnke

Let's demonstrate, illustrate, the ways in which our communities are being undermined time and time again, and make sure that the broader public and those in power choose to stand with us. -Opal Tometi

John Austin, author of 'Cubicle Warfare,' has outdone himself with 'Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction,' a fully illustrated step-by-step guide to constructing thirty-five pocket-sized war machines, including a Clothespin Shooter, a Hanger Slingshot, a Paper-Clip Trebuchet, and Shoelace Darts. -Camille Perri

For documentaries, I think streaming plays an amazing role, but it's a problem when the one service you initially relied on to have an incredible buffet – 'Come and see a lot of world cinema, and the lives of ordinary people as well' – all of a sudden is narrowed down until it's just gladiator after gladiator – and bloodlust. -Debra Granik

Around the world, our cities are not the idealised open, accessible, and cosmopolitan spaces of our dreams. More often than not, they are sectioned and controlled purviews of the radically wealthy, surrounded by clusters of have-nots. -Uzodinma Iweala

As the documentary 'True Son' illustrates, my campaign for city council started really small – with eight mostly political neophytes in my living room and with young people knocking on doors. -Michael Tubbs

I wrote for 'The Sopranos' and worked on big, blustery characters for quite a while. -Terence Winter

Every field of astrophysics – whether it's our local neighborhood of planets, nearby stars and their attendant planets, galaxies, clusters of galaxies, out to the edge of the universe – every field has questions that are awaiting the power of Hubble. -Heidi Hammel

Hemingway's short story 'Hills Like White Elephants' is a classic of its kind. It illustrates Hemingway's 'iceberg theory,' which requires that a story find its effectiveness by hiding more than it reveals. -Amitava Kumar

The first time someone stood up in front of the fire and told the story while illustrating it with shadows on the walls of the quarry, that was the birth of theater. -Robert Lepage

There's always been a lot of interest in the tech community about how to foster innovation and creativity – both within a company but also in the ecosystem of a tech cluster. In both cases, creating opportunities for people who don't encounter each other normally to meet and talk is key. -Taavet Hinrikus

I met with an Automaidan activist who was part of a self-appointed group drafting a lustration law for parliament, which would exclude from political life people who actively participated in Yanukovych's criminal regime. -Keith Gessen

Northern New Jersey looks like a cluster of idyllic suburbs, but each of those seemingly normal towns has a dark side that's constantly gossiped about but never publicly acknowledged. They seem to thrive on their strangenesses. -Chris Gethard

Trump crossed the line all the time. Flustered during the debate because he couldn't out-debate Clinton on policy, he just leaned into the mic and dismissed her entirely: 'nasty woman.' -Mel Robbins

All the great artists illustrate their approach to life in the work they make. -Genesis P-Orridge

Before they became Americans, most white inhabitants of the 13 colonies considered themselves British. It was predictable, therefore, that they would lust after empire, because this was exactly what their counterparts on the other side of the Atlantic also did. -Linda Colley

I always say it's a shame picture books get such a bad rep. Illustrations are tough to sell older kids on! -Rebecca Serle

Nothing expresses lack of inner confidence like bluster. -David Brin

When 'Sports Illustrated' came out with their 50 most fashionable people in sport, that fact that I wasn't on that list is a travesty. -Stan Van Gundy

Even little adjustments in promos or being a heel, different mannerisms in the ring, every week there's something I can do better. The only time I get flustered is when I try to do too many things at once. It's better to do one thing each week and work on that. -Charlotte Flair

When guys leave – whether they decide to leave or they're forced out – there's usually this period of time we see them around the world, and they can ride that WWE wave and use it, and then it goes away. It loses its luster after a few months. -Cody Rhodes

I would tell high school Shane to just start writing down everything that was happening. It was so hard to think back to all those terrible moments. They all started clustering together into one big terrible moment. -Shane Dawson

My favorite thing about my grandmother is her lust for life and how much she has shown me about living every day to the fullest. To say my grandmother has paved the way for me and so many women out there like me is an understatement. -Meghan McCain

When I was a kid, I was a big fan of the regional scene. I read 'Pro Wrestling Illustrated,' and I watched Portland Wrestling and everything I could. -Chael Sonnen

I was born to an illustrious family in Hyderabad. -Aditi Rao Hydari

I think comics are faster to draw with a pen and then fill and tone by computer. But my illustrations are all done via computer. I even draw the lines on a tablet. -Akira Toriyama

When I work as an art director, I don't ask to see sketches from illustrators or photographers. I give them a basic idea, and then I say, 'Send it to me, it'll be fine' – I get out of the way. -David Carson

It's a pity nobody believes in simple lust anymore. -Ava Gardner

I believe in lust at first sight; I don't know about love. For me, I think it takes more than a glance. But who knows? Maybe it'll happen. -Ashley Roberts

I think 'I'm in You' was lackluster and way too light. -Peter Frampton

For all its bluster, the BDS campaign is most notable, I think, for its lack of success. Trade is booming; tourism is soaring. The media campaign is full of sound and fury, but to the majority of Britain today, it signifies nothing. -Sajid Javid

I had started out my grown-up life in New York City, but I couldn't figure out how to be an actor there. And so I had been a magazine illustrator instead. -Michael Emerson

I was a magazine illustrator for many years before I became an actor, and I used to think, 'Oh, God, all those wasted years!' But now I think it's just been one big enterprise of illustrating. I used to do it with colored pencils, and now I do it with this voice and this set of limbs. -Michael Emerson

It's not really an easier racket than acting is. For some reason, I guess it had – the rejection of an illustrator's life is less penetrating than the rejection of an actor's life. So I was able to manage that. But all the while, I still nursed that old dream of being an actor. -Michael Emerson

Bluster – it fortifies me against the outside world. Take away the words, and I am lost. -Sue Perkins

I'm 5'3'', and not often you get to see that in a magazine. I think that what is so cool about 'Sports Illustrated' is it's all different body shapes, all difference sizes. You have actresses, sports figures, musicians, so it's all about skin deep beauty sort of radiating to the outside, and that's what's so special. -Alexa Ray Joel

As soon as I could write with a little pencil, I was writing these little hymns and illustrating them, and I thought they should be sung in church, but they never were. -W. S. Merwin

A great melodic line is like a person's soul, and coming up with an original melody, it can be like you are illustrating the soul. -Ludovico Einaudi

There's a difference between lust and passionate love. Lust can't just creep in. You'll not find it where true love exists, but it has power enough to shatter the world you've worked so hard to create with love, and sometimes, it suddenly changes how you perceived love to begin with. Love then doesn't live there anymore. -Jennifer Winget

I believe there are aspects of the narrative that become easier to understand by shifting the focus of the story to the characters. Illustrating growth and change in the protagonist becomes a simpler process, and these changes are, in fact, one of the themes of 'Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice''s story. -Hidetaka Miyazaki

When I was a lad, my parents and all their equivalents never lusted after other people's riches or success. -David Jason

Football is not always as glamourous as some might imagine, as the story of the first time I signed Marouane Fellaini perhaps illustrates. -David Moyes

I've never tasted a store-bought tortilla that compares in texture or flavor with one made by hand, so I'm happy to invest some time. It's worth it just to see a friend take her first bite and understand, finally, that a flour tortilla is meant to be an essential component, not just a lackluster wrapper. -Samin Nosrat

I'm lucky to have such an illustrious family. We love each other and have immense respect for each other. -Bobby Deol
