I am flattered that they think that many people would enjoy my work. I don't approach any genre a different way than I may approach another one. I treat every role I do like a role worthy of applying whatever kind of tactic, process and talent I have. -Vin Diesel

I have like 250 letters that I have to whittle it down to 150. Only then do you have the whole overview of a book. When it was finally edited, at least my take was, everybody's lying. You know? -Don Novello

I didn't do it because of the underlying greed that's prevailing, but it is about greed, doing the right thing at the right time using your clout when you have it and what for and what reason. -Danny DeVito

As a label, you have to treat every group and every record as a unique entity. I think that that has been our success, rather than relying upon a fan base. -Greg Ginn

I've met the most interesting people while flying or on a boat. These methods of travel seem to attract the kind of people I want to be with. -Hedy Lamarr

Life science research can be done on multiple platforms. Since we have a very small number of people flying into space, the more people you have, the better. -Laurel Clark

After he was assassinated, his family and the men who had served him continued the lying and began the destruction, censoring and hiding of JFK's medical records. -Richard Reeves

They said, 'If we put you in first class with Brian, will you do it?' So I flew after not having flown in eight years. If there's one person who doesn't like flying as much as me, it's Brian. -Matthew Sweet

So, when I say 'match the hatch', if the fish are taking the nymph, and you're actually producing a replica of a flying insect, you'll catch fresh air. -Rex Hunt

The easiest gift to give my husband is anything to do with airlines and flying. -Kelly Preston

In so many interviews, they bring up the sexual aspect of the record. I've had some journalists say it sounds like I'm lying down in bed singing with a microphone. It gets so old! -Lucinda Williams

I've never met or spoken to David Lee Roth, yet it's rather ironic that even he's saying Eddie's lying about things. I'm saying he's not telling the truth, yet Eddie insists that the two of us are lying! You be the judge. -Sammy Hagar

Pop science goes flying off in all kinds of fashionable directions, and it often drags a lot of SF writers with it. I've been led astray like that myself at times. -Greg Egan

I get to pretend I'm flying into space, and hang out with my friends. That's what I do for a living. -Jeri Ryan

Feminism – the word – can give us a handle, a rallying point, a common ground, and help us build a bridge. Why not claim the gift of the word as a place to begin? -Betty Buckley

No Man is richer for having his Estate all in Money, Plate, etc. lying by him, but on the contrary, he is for that reason the poorer. -Dudley North

I thought Erica Jong's Fear of Flying was one of the biggest pieces of crap that I've ever read in my life. -Helen Reddy

The decision that has to be made was whether it was material, whether he knew he was lying under oath, whether he did it willfully. I think that's required of any prosecutor who is charged with an investigation of this. -Barbara Olson

Bullying wasn't okay in elementary school and it isn't okay now, especially when it comes in the form of a U.S. Supreme Court decision. -John Doolittle

If you want to maintain a sustainable supply of fish you have to farm the fish, rather than mine them. So putting your money into fishing fleets that are going to exacerbate the problem by over-fishing is not the way to preserve the underlying asset. -Maurice Strong

I had that flying wheel tattooed on my forehead and on my butt. -Ted Lindsay

But I could also start F1 or rallying. I love rallying much more. -Valentino Rossi

I remember laughing an inordinate amount of time. Setting up scenes that involve ooze coming out basements, or pigs' heads flying through windows is really fun. How could you not laugh? -Margot Kidder

One ends up relying on pure musical inspiration, and failing that, the music won't lead to anything good, or it will alienate all but the most die-hard fans. -Boris Vian

And I agreed the feeling of action as he was flying or jumping or leaping – a flowing cape would give it movement. It really helped, and it was very easy to draw. -Joe Shuster

He was mostly leaping tall buildings in the beginning. There were cases where he would leap off a tall building or swoop down, and at that point he would look like he was flying, I suppose. It was just natural to draw him like that. -Joe Shuster

Many psychoanalysts refused to let me speak at their meetings. They were exceptionally vigorous because I had previously been an analyst and they were very angry at my flying the coop. -Albert Ellis

We were flying on a winged vehicle that would do reentry different than we had ever done before. So all of those were firsts. Test pilots truly love firsts. -Robert Crippen

I feel very confident that Americans flying in the air are safe and that only under the most dire of circumstances would our pilots ever even request permission to do that. -Hugh Shelton

I think what I and most other sociologists of religion wrote in the 1960s about secularization was a mistake. Our underlying argument was that secularization and modernity go hand in hand. With more modernization comes more secularization. -Peter L. Berger

I was painting sets, working in editorial as an assistant, driving their trucks, lying that I knew how to drive a truck, and doing commercials and documentaries. -Richard Donner

It's only when you're flying above it that you realize how incredible the Earth really is. -Philippe Perrin

And also the new excitement and variety of ways that the abstract expressionists were applying paint. You could put it on as though it were colored air and it would be painting. -Robert Rauschenberg

They have been saying for a long time that Iraq made an effort to import active uranium, and my colleague demonstrated the other day that they came to the conclusion that it was a fake document that everybody is relying upon. -Hans Blix

I don't take criticism lying down. -William Westmoreland

We said we would leave no stone unturned to get to Germany and now we are applying the same philosophy towards our tournament preparations. -John O'Neill

Excellence, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean, relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. -Aristotle

Obama specializes in knocking down straw men. 'I reject the view that says our problems will simply take care of themselves,' he said, implying that's the view of Republicans. It's the view of almost no one. -Fred Barnes

It has been popular to threaten 'small islands and low-lying coasts' with scenarios of disastrous future flooding. The Maldives has been the most utilised target. We have undertaken a careful analysis of actual sea level changes in the Maldives. No rise has been recorded either in the present or the past centuries. -Nils-Axel Morner

We've got ballots flying around, being counted by hand, arriving by truck and in God knows whose custody. -David Axelrod

Driving a motorcycle is like flying. All your senses are alive. When I ride through Beverly Hills in the early morning, and all the sprinklers have turned off, the scents that wash over me are just heavenly. Being House is like flying, too. You're free of the gravity of what people think. -Hugh Laurie

I would bend over backward to be back on Grey's. Any day, I'll choose lying in bed with Katherine Heigl looking over me over getting thrown against walls by supernatural persons at 5 in the morning. -Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Having played many roles of scientific intellect I do have an empathy for that world. It's been hard on me because flying the Enterprise for seven years in Star Trek and sitting in Cerebro in X-men has led people to believe that I know what I'm talking about. But I'm still trying to work out how to operate the air conditioning unit on my car. -Patrick Stewart

You can't have a situation in which companies proceed on a permanent basis relying only on cash from the government. -Lawrence Summers

I was caught up in the hysteria during the Vietnam era, which was brought about through Marxist propaganda underlying the so-called peace movement. -Jon Voight

Flying dreams mean that you're doing the right thing with your life. -Douglas Coupland

The real truth is that the Obama administration is professional at bullying, as we have witnessed with ACORN at work during the presidential campaign. It seems to me they are sending down their bullies to create fist fights among average American citizens who don't want a government-run health care plan forced upon them. -Jon Voight

I think getting drunk is the key to flying comfortably. A couple of bloody marys or several glasses of champagne, and suddenly it's like you're on a roller coaster. -Amanda Peet

The right way to reign in healthcare costs is not by applying more government and more controls and making it more like the post office, it's by making it more like a consumer-driven market. -Mitt Romney

The unique danger today is the possibility that we may face longer-term stagnation as a consequence of relying too heavily on borrowed money. -Mortimer Zuckerman

When my job was attempting to predict future economic developments for the Shell oil company, I was frequently reminded of an Arabic saying: 'Those who claim to foresee the future are lying, even if by chance they are later proved right.' -Vince Cable

The degree of leverage now being reversed is staggering, and the underlying global imbalances – notably between the savers and the spenders – will require long and painful adjustment. -Vince Cable

Stop relying only on technology. Technology can help the qualified, well-trained human being but cannot replace him. -Isaac Yeffet

So, I'm lying on the couch and Laura walks in and I say, 'Free at last,' and she says 'You're free all right, you're free to do the dishes.' So I say, 'You're talking to the former president, baby,' and she said, 'consider this your new domestic policy agenda.' -George W. Bush

The things that make me very angry are injustice and bullying. If I see someone bullying a woman or child in the street, or kicking a dog, I go completely mad. -Susannah York

Cutting the deficit by gutting our investments in innovation and education is like lightening an overloaded airplane by removing its engine. It may make you feel like you're flying high at first, but it won't take long before you feel the impact. -Barack Obama

I've been actually really very pleased to see how much awareness was raised around bullying, and how deeply it affects everyone. You know, you don't have to be the loser kid in high school to be bullied. Bullying and being picked on comes in so many different forms. -Lady Gaga

When I was flying to Rome, we flew over London; I felt like bursting into tears. It's part of me, so I can't leave London behind for good. -Robert Pattinson

Here in Australia we do get impacted by global economic events. But we should have some confidence that our economy has got strong underlying fundamentals. -Julia Gillard

Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of science – to question all things relentlessly. Modern physics has become like Swift's kingdom of Laputa, flying absurdly on an island above the earth and indifferent to what is beneath. -Robert Lanza

I just think more precaution should be taken when I'm inside the pocket. Look at all the replays – I'm on the ground every time. It's unfortunate for myself, it's unfortunate for my team and I'd be lying if I sat here and said I wasn't frustrated right now. -Michael Vick

Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific or a great idea, God Bless, keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and paid forward for the next kid who comes along. -Elizabeth Warren

Never assume, no matter how strong the temptation, that other people are low-life lying manipulators without a shred of human decency. -Dinesh D'Souza

But it wasn't until I graduated from Texas A & M University and joined the United States Air Force, flying C-130's all around the globe, that I truly appreciated the blessings of freedom. -Rick Perry

Gay kids need to stop killing themselves because they are made to feel worthless by cruel and relentless bullying. -Zachary Quinto

In rallying every curve, every hill may be different than you thought. That makes it interesting. -Kimi Raikkonen

When I did some Nascar races this year I noticed that I was increasingly missing the racing side, to race against each other, because in rallying you really race against the clock. -Kimi Raikkonen

I couldn't understand why my productivity went down when I had deliberately made more time available to write. Then I realized it was because I wasn't flying as much. -Simon Sinek

I don't think people will ever forget I was an 'Angel', anymore than they'll forget Sally Field was 'The Flying Nun.' -Cheryl Ladd

I get heartbroken flying into L.A. It's just this feeling of unspecific loss. Can you imagine what the San Fernando Valley was when it was all wheat fields? Can you imagine what John Steinbeck saw? -Edward Norton

These guys are just flying through the air and I'm capturing them in the split second and putting it into a work of art, via clay to the bronze. -Richard MacDonald

I went along doing the one-salad-a-night routine for a year. And I remember feeling so tired and depressed and irritable. I had no personal life. I was always flying someplace – weekends, holidays, vacations. Dinners at night were no fun because I couldn't eat. -Carol Alt

I was literally just going and applying for jobs, and I couldn't get a job, and I was getting more and more broke, and you find yourself groveling for jobs you don't even want. -Ben Gibbard

Life in LA is not lying in the sun for months. It is having a 4pm meeting and leaving at noon to sit in traffic for four hours. It's not glam. -Billy Boyd

I'd be lying if I said it wasn't fun to go to these nights out, like the opening of a film or something, but I dip in and out of it. -Billy Boyd

No reporter is flying around in borrowed twin-engine airplanes. -Dee Dee Myers

One of my weaknesses happens to be lying, and I could tell you that I'm never going to lie again in my life, but that would be a lie. -Jayson Blair

When you've been on a programme called 'An Idiot Abroad' job offers aren't exactly flying in. -Karl Pilkington

The thing that makes a great genre movie is one that's not just entertainment, not just horror or sci-fi or whatever. The ones I love are the genre pictures with some subversive message underlying it all. -Ethan Hawke

I'd be lying if I said I had confidence in every choice I've made, that I have faith in every film I do on every shot. -Ethan Hawke

I would feel so guilty about lying that I would try to stress myself out and work up a headache so I wouldn't have the guilt of not having a bit of the symptom. -Justin Long

I've learned I'm not lying by not saying anything, so I just don't say it anymore. -Pink

During the whole 'Jeopardy' experience, I felt like I was living a bit of a double life, I would be secretly flying out to L.A. to tape new shows, hoping that none of my coworkers would notice the absence and figure out what was going on. 'Jeopardy' tries very hard to keep their secrets. -Ken Jennings

Like when you go to a magic show and you know how they do the illusions. That's how I am when I watch any movies where they have people flying through the air. -Renee O'Connor

The flying? I'm not worried about it. I'm safe up there. I feel very comfortable with my abilities flying an airplane. -Cory Lidle

There are two ways of lying. One, not telling the truth and the other, making up statistics. -Josefina Vazquez Mota

I took a Fear of Flying class, and I always missed the class, because I was always flying. -Sara Blakely

I grew up watching 'Superman.' As a child, when I first learned to dive into a swimming pool, I wasn't diving, I was flying, like Superman. I used to dream of rescuing a girl I had a crush on from a playground bully. -Tom Hiddleston

It was a very hard life. As I got older, the family was depending very much on me. My two older brothers got married, so they had their own families depending on them. I had seven people relying on me, so I worked in a grocery store. -Martin Lel

I had a hard time with bullying. I ate lunch in the bathroom. -Julianne Hough

I can't worry about what other people are saying about me. At the end of the day, it's just their opinions, but if I said I don't hear it, or it doesn't bother me a little bit, I'd be lying to you. -Carmelo Anthony

I have been through two wars in my 24 years, and I know what it's like to be without anything, to see the bombs flying above your head. -Novak Djokovic

The hardest thing about skateboarding is consistency: The slightest flick of your foot or gust of wind can send your board flying, so it's really anybody's game out there. -Shaun White

But as an entrepreneur you have to feel like you can jump out of an aeroplane because you're confident that you'll catch a bird flying by. It's an act of stupidity, and most entrepreneurs go splat because the bird doesn't come by, but a few times it does. -Reed Hastings

Rock helps me communicate directly with the people because rock doesn't lie, and people are fed up with lying politicians. -Amado Boudou

People are always afraid of the unknown – and banding together against the Thing That Is Different From Us is a time-honoured tradition for rallying the masses. -Jodi Picoult

We don't do things we aren't good at by nature. I wouldn't play basketball because I'm only 5' 1". Find what you enjoy – whether it's racing, flying a helicopter, being a doctor, or stitching clothes together. Once you've done that, you have the passion you need. -Danica Patrick

Shrinking someone's stomach to the size of a walnut with surgery is one way to battle obesity and diabetes and may be lifesaving for a few, but it doesn't address the underlying causes. -Mark Hyman

Placing too much emphasis on a yes/no diagnosis, meaning you either have a disease or you don't, can lead even the most well-meaning physicians to miss underlying causes and early warning signs of illness. -Mark Hyman

It's easy to be lazy when there's food lying around backstage or there's a fast-food joint a couple blocks away. But if you walk a little further, ask around a bit, of course there are exciting things to discover. -Alex Kapranos

I try to get in quiet time and book time, but really, the only time I ever get that is when I'm on an airplane – I have a fear of flying, but I actually love flying because it's the only time I can sleep, and it's the only time I get to read. -Kesha

I would lying if I said I would laugh in the face of death. -Mitch Albom

There are so many women out there relying on me to represent them. -Sheryl Swoopes

I don't know if this is the kind of retrospective analysis that people are fond of applying to their work or actions, but it feels like I knew I was going to be famous and I knew that an element of that would be traumatic, so that if I could make myself something big and otherworldly, it would be a kind of defence. -Russell Brand

But I'd be lying if I didn't say that every time you go to make a film, you're desperate to either do it better than you did it last time or to not repeat yourself. -Paul Thomas Anderson

I think anytime you start relying on a format to get you by you've got weak material to begin with. -Drew Curtis

You see people on TV flying in to places just to pick up a baby, or brush some flies away. That's great if they can bring that issue to public attention. But that's not what I wanted to do. I was interested in committing to something that I could function in whether I was Debra Winger or not. Because nobody might care about that next week. -Debra Winger

At home in L.A., Sunday is lazy. It's the wife and me lying in bed with coffee, watching 'The Soup' or something funny on TiVo. The kid will occasionally join us. Eventually, breakfast is at a place down the street called Paty's. And we always have some kind of great dinner – my wife makes a great roast beef. -Eric McCormack

Brushes are crucial for applying glazes, sauces, and oils. The pastry brushes that you find in homestores can be pricey so pay a visit to your local hardware store and pick up a few paint brushes which are less expensive and work equally as well. -Bobby Flay

You know I never used to be a bad flyer, but I did start to have a fear of flying after I shot a movie where I was terrorized on a plane. I made Wes Craven's 'Red Eye'. I don't think they're linked but it does make me pause and wonder if they are, so perhaps I will explore that in therapy some day. -Rachel McAdams

Any actor or actress that tells you that they don't watch their stuff is lying. -Amy Poehler

Flying is such a joy. You just want to hoot. -Cathy Rigby

We must have moral education in the schools, anti-bullying programs, but this does not mean programs to feminize boys. -Christina Hoff Sommers

I love just lying on the floor at home watching games with my dad. No pressures, just being me. -David Keith

I think at a certain level compared – as was pointed out earlier, compared to what is happening in Europe, the United States still gets the safe-haven money. But underlying that, the United States is not the safe haven but perhaps the most dangerous place of all. -Mark Steyn

I love flying. -Adam Kinzinger

Actors who say they can dive inside a character are either schizophrenic or lying. -Bruce Campbell

My dream has always been to suspend myself in space when I write, and lying horizontal in bed is the closest to doing that. -Richard Powers

I started lying about my age when I was 18 to be older. When I turned 21, I started lying that I was 18. It's a weakness in me. -Rosie Perez

The thing about lying is, it is quite exhausting – you have to remember a lot. -Rupert Everett

Bullying is killing our kids. Being different is killing our kids and the kids who are bullying are dying inside. We have to save our kids whether they are bullied or they are bullying. They are all in pain. -Cat Cora

Being a physician, you can either treat the symptoms or cure the disease. This Congress has been treating the symptoms. It's time we cure the disease and take care of the problems that are underlying our poor economy. -Joe Heck

This is why I wanted to be different and why I wanted to have power and fame and money: because I wanted to be attractive to the opposite sex. I'd be lying to you if I didn't say that was a big part of it. -Michael Buble

I watched Reagan turn around the country by lowering taxes and controlling spending, and I'm applying the same principles. -Luis Fortuno

I should be able to pick which applications I use for managing my life, I should be able to pick which content I look at, and I should be able to pick which device I use, which company I use for supplying my internet, and I'd like those to be independent choices. -Tim Berners-Lee

One Saturday in 1984, I walked into my first AA meeting. I went regularly for six years and only stopped when I came to realize my underlying problem was not genuine alcoholism, but depression. -Jack Dee

I love being able to go on local flights when the weather is right. I've popped to the Isle of Wight, Cornwall and been mountain flying in Wales. When I got my licence I was over the moon, it was one of the greatest days of my life – it took two years to get! -Jay Kay

I used to skip out of high school and go flying. It was just one of those things, I thought it was kind of a cool thing to do. I never thought about doing that as a profession, but I started checking things out and I found out there was a flight school down in Daytona Beach, called Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. -Jerry Doyle

I never realized that growing up in Brooklyn, flying jets, working on Wall Street and starring in a sci-fi series was the prerequisite for the fast-paced demands of talk radio. But, if that's what it takes to succeed, I'm glad I did it all. -Jerry Doyle

I just enjoy lying on the couch and reading a magazine. -David Sedaris

I wanted to be a pilot. I loved flying and I loved all the technology and the equipment and the sense of adventure that came with it. I think that feeling still bleeds over into everything I do today. -Graham Brown

I would rather be lying in a bed than changing one. -Usain Bolt

Well, again, a gun sale database is just trying to get the Department of Justice to keep track of the guns that they're purchasing and supplying to drug dealers and murderers. I mean, wow. Come on, let's get the government under control before we start restricting the rights of – innocent citizens. -John Mica

Most people are flying to Heathrow because it's a hub, so they can fly on to other places, often long-distance flights. If they can't go on those long-distance flights from Heathrow, they will go to Paris, they will go to Amsterdam, they will go to Frankfurt, because those are viable alternatives. -Geoff Hoon

More and more these days what I find myself doing in my stories is making a representation of goodness and a representation of evil and then having those two run at each other full-speed, like a couple of PeeWee football players, to see what happens. Who stays standing? Whose helmet goes flying off? -George Saunders

If you got problems like unemployment, Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare and there's a guy that's always been there for you and for your family, then you say 'He's a nice guy. I don't know where he came from or how long he's been here, but Charlie Rangel's the man.' That's what I'm relying on. -Charles B. Rangel

I don't consider Americans bullies, but I do consider the American government bullying. -George Michael

I'm quite scared of flying, and especially helicopters, I don't like them at all. -Heidi Klum

We don't have the capability today to put a human being in space of any kind, shape or form, which is absolutely, totally unacceptable when we got the greatest flying machine in the world sitting down at Kennedy in a garage there with nothing to do. -Gene Cernan

I think a lot of people, even Christians, are willing to be satisfied with gaining lots and lots of biblical knowledge – and many people go to Bible studies and don't realize it isn't enough to know what's right, it's applying the information and the knowledge that you have. -Charles Stanley

Most comedy is based on getting a laugh at somebody else's expense. And I find that that's just a form of bullying in a major way. So I want to be an example that you can be funny and be kind, and make people laugh without hurting somebody else's feelings. -Ellen DeGeneres

I have called the co-host job at the 'Today Show' my dream job, and I would be lying if I said it was easy to leave that job. -Ann Curry

I've tried to do away with lying in my life in the last few years, but it's hard. -Louis C. K.

Well, when I was younger, I lied all the time, because once you understand the power of lying, it's really like magic because you transform reality for people. -Louis C. K.

American movies are often very good at mining those great underlying myths that make films robustly travel across class, age, gender, culture. -Tom Hooper

Yes, I've been trepanned. That's quite an interesting experience, especially for my brain surgeon, who saw my thoughts flying around in my brain. -Keith Richards

I thought the attractions of being an astronaut were actually, not so much the Moon, but flying in a completely new medium. -Neil Armstrong

Pilates is my favorite core strengthener. I do it three or four times a week. With all the strengthening and lengthening, it's like ballet. Plus, you get to do it lying down! -Emily VanCamp

To avoid ignorance and bullying, I've had to hide the fact that I'm a troll. You have no idea how much time and money I've spent on electrolysis and hair dye and reconstructive surgery so I can look like this. -Jon Cryer

Whenever I dream about flying, it's the best feeling in the world. -Kate Mara

With actors, all our ages are out there for all to see – you can't hide anything, really. And it's kind of a relief. This is my age, this is what I look like without makeup on – who cares? That youth culture – that lying about your age – it's all denial of death anyway. -Julianne Moore

There will always be a part of me that wants to do a movie musical. I feel like you're doing yourself a disservice when you say something like that, because you never know if that thing is gonna come along and be right, but I'd be lying if I said that that wasn't true. -Anna Kendrick

There's a general sense that women are more relaxed and less defensive in comedy than they used to be. I think it's easier than it was but underlying it all there is still a pretty sexist view of women on stage, which to me hasn't changed that much. -Jo Brand

As a scholar I am interested in the philosophy of language, semiotics, call it what you want, and one of the main features of the human language is the possibility of lying. -Umberto Eco

I do about 90 percent of my own stunts, and the things I can't do for insurance reasons, like swinging out of a flying helicopter, I wouldn't want to do anyway. -LL Cool J

I work best when there is adversity: I seem to get calmer the more the fur is flying. -Andrea Arnold

The possibilities that are suggested in quantum physics tell us that everything that we're looking at may not be in fact there, so the underlying nature of being is weird. -William Shatner

The world economy today is recovering slowly, and there are still some destabilising factors and uncertainties. The underlying impact of the international financial crisis is far from over. -Hu Jintao

The implication that women work for pin money and can manage on a worse pension, presumably by relying on husbands, riles. But even more galling for women is that few government ministers seem to even appreciate the value of the work they do. -Frances O'Grady

If the rise of European colonisation began in 18th century India, then the rallying cry of 'Jai Hind!' also signalled its end in 1947. -Pranab Mukherjee

The presidential candidates are offering prescriptions for everything from Iraq to healthcare, but listen closely. Their fixes are situational and incremental. Meanwhile, the underlying structural problems in American politics and government are systemic and prevent us from solving our most intractable challenges. -Larry J. Sabato

I prayed like a man walking in a forest at night, feeling his way with his hands, at each step fearing to fall into pure bottomlessness forever. Prayer is like lying awake at night, afraid, with your head under the cover, hearing only the beating of your own heart. -Wendell Berry

I am so in love with just lying in bed listening to Mozart. -Ben Stein

All of the clean technologies are known, it's a question of simply applying them. -Barry Commoner

I don't read 'chick lit,' fantasy or science fiction but I'll give any book a chance if it's lying there and I've got half an hour to kill. -J. K. Rowling

I have one major problem with the internet: It's full of liars. There doesn't seem to be any way to answer to people lying about you. -John Lydon

If the Wright brothers hadn't put their lives on the line, we would not be flying around the world these days. So we need pioneers. -Felix Baumgartner

I always had the dream of flying, and the cheapest way is to become a skydiver. -Felix Baumgartner

I had the closest thing I have ever had to an out-of-body experience lying in bed one morning. I turned on the 'Today' programme and item four on the news was: 'The shadow chancellor has ruled himself out of the leadership.' I lay there thinking that's interesting, then I realised it was me. -George Osborne

I mean if you have ever found a politician who says, 'No, no, I would do everything exactly as I did,' then you can tell when he is lying because his lips are moving. -John Major

Let lying dogs sleep is something I always say in reference to the Smiths. -Morrissey

You know what I have noticed? And this is really sad. Flying first class is less scary than flying coach. They speak to you and they're so nice to you and they want to help you and they know you want a drink before the plane takes off. And they bring it to you without asking. If you're sitting in coach and hoping for a drink, good luck. -Hope Davis

Ever since I bought and started flying an airplane, it's been almost exclusively for business. I love to fly. It's a great joy to me. But rarely do I use it for any kind of pleasure, other than it is a pleasure to fly. -Arnold Palmer

I started flying because I had a fear of it early on. I figured if I learned to fly, I would understand better what was happening and started taking lessons in the late 1950's, once I had made some money on tour. -Arnold Palmer

I quit flying myself last year and that was difficult for me because I enjoy it as much as playing golf. It was an adjustment sitting in the back of the plane, rather than at the controls, but I've grown accustomed to it and enjoy reading a book, doing some work or challenging my wife to a game of dominos. -Arnold Palmer

The thing about Vegas is, I don't have to fly anywhere, and that really helps. It means I stay in one place for three weeks at a time instead of flying backwards and forwards. -Elton John

The long irons are the nemesis of the average golfer. I'm convinced that the underlying reason for this is that he keeps hearing how hard they are to handle. They're not that difficult, truly. -Jack Nicklaus

People who are more than casually interested in computers should have at least some idea of what the underlying hardware is like. Otherwise the programs they write will be pretty weird. -Donald Knuth

Given the choice between accomplishing something and just lying around, I'd rather lie around. No contest. -Eric Clapton

I'm Ric Flair! The Stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun! -Ric Flair

I love flying planes. -Hunter Hayes

Successful technologies often begin as hobbies. Jacques Cousteau invented scuba diving because he enjoyed exploring caves. The Wright brothers invented flying as a relief from the monotony of their normal business of selling and repairing bicycles. -Freeman Dyson

I've had a lot of fear in my life, from fear of flying to fear of making a speech in front of a lot of people. -Chris Evert

Success is always something completely different to people. I feel like I've succeeded, if I'm doing something that makes me happy and I'm not lying to anybody. I'm not doing that now, so I feel really good about myself. -Kristen Stewart

'Twilight' has ruined me. When this is all over, flying internationally is going to be very hard for me. It is just not worth it to buy a first-class ticket, because of the cost. -Ashley Greene

All I've ever ended up with in terms of achievements is the movie, some really stupid anecdotes, a bunch of crosswords that I didn't finish and maybe some old bicycle that I found lying around on set. -Christian Bale

A lot of the main characters in horror movies are outsiders as well, so that outsider syndrome reverberates within horror fans and geeky collectors. It's kind of a rallying call that brings fans and collectors together who are a little socially retarded, maybe. -Kirk Hammett

Success is always something completely different to people. I feel like I've succeeded, if I'm doing something that makes me happy and I'm not lying to anybody. -Kristen Stewart

A typical biography relying upon individuals' notorious memories and the anecdotes they've invented contains a high degree of fiction, yet is considered 'nonfiction.' -Joyce Carol Oates

I characterize myself as a retired hacker. I'm applying what I know to improve security at companies. -Kevin Mitnick

Ultimately, all human activities have as their goal the realization of happiness. Why, then, have we ended up producing the opposite result? Could the underlying cause be our failure to correctly understand the true nature of happiness? -Daisaku Ikeda

Women are, in my view, natural peacemakers. As givers and nurturers of life, through their focus on human relationships and their engagement with the demanding work of raising children and protecting family life, they develop a deep sense of empathy that cuts through to underlying human realities. -Daisaku Ikeda

I get really nervous if pigeons are flying around before shows. I can't stand them after one once flew in through my bathroom window and went for me while I was having a wee. That was enough. I think pigeons target me. -Niall Horan

I have the flying dream a lot where I'm jumping off a building and just flying around. -Channing Tatum

I work every day. I was flying the other day. and I was like, where am I flying? I have no idea, I work so much. -Lily Aldridge

The dilemma of modern medicine, and the underlying central flaw in medical education and, most of all, in the training of interns, is the irresistible drive to do something, anything. It is expected by patients and too often agreed to by their doctors, in the face of ignorance. -Lewis Thomas

I was studying my 'Bold and Beautiful' script the other day, lying in a hammock, when one of my Siberian tigers walked up and grabbed it out of my hand – she wanted to play. See – teeth marks! -Tippi Hedren

I'm not lying to myself like most people. -Jack Kevorkian

I'm almost incapable of lying. I'd be a terrible spy. -Gary Oldman

Novelists are not equipped to make a movie, in my opinion. They make their own movie when they write: they're casting, they're dressing the scene, they're working out where the energy of the scene is coming from and they're also relying tremendously on the creative imagination of the reader. -John le Carre

Men are fair, and they have learned not to personalize anger – they can disagree with you and argue to the bone, but afterward they still consider you a nice person with whom the underlying human relationship need not be altered. -Warren Farrell

Sigmund Freud was the apostle of disbelief. He was the one who made psychoanalysis a part of our culture, and in so doing he kicked out a flying buttress that had been essential for holding up our cathedral of faith. -Tony Campolo

Let me tell you, never before in the history of this planet has anybody made the progress that African-Americans have made in a 30-year period, in spite of many black folks and white folks lying to one another. -Dick Gregory

I think probably the scariest thing, as weird as it sounds, was 'The Wizard of Oz' and the flying monkeys with the witch. I remember seeing that – it still seems freaky. -Rob Zombie

Sometimes when I'm watching television and something, an image, will come on that has to do with 9/11 or some of these families telling their stories, or children talking about drawing pictures of airplanes flying into towers, you know, I find myself still choking up. -Ann Richards

You have to do something when you're lying in bed. So you play with your mind. -Jim Davis

I hate flying. Know why? Because no one really understands how planes actually work. -Adam Levine

Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes. -Debbie Stabenow

Because I was aspirational, I did my work, I was respectful to my teachers, I experienced a lot of bullying from the black kids. My friends were largely white or Asian. -David Oyelowo

Yeah, I'm the Brit who isn't Lewis Hamilton that woke up and realised he was good. I got that tag because I was young, flying around in jets and driving fast cars. I always took my driving seriously, but I suppose I enjoyed life… But I'm not a playboy. -Jenson Button

Beatbullying's 'The Big March 2012' is such a brilliant campaign and I am very proud to be a part of it. I have been a victim of cyber bullying myself and I know firsthand just how hurtful it can be. People think that they can hide behind computers and send nasty and hurtful comments to people, and this is wrong. -Katherine Jenkins

Children should be able to live a life free from bullying and harassment and it is time that we all took a stand against this. -Katherine Jenkins

The fact that Obama is getting criticism from the left and the right might reflect his understanding of the underlying political dynamics. -Ron Fournier

A presidential debate is a job interview. And voters look for certain traits in people applying to be president. -Ron Fournier

I hate flying, airports and the whole rigmarole – queuing up, security and lost luggage. -Johnny Vegas

I had the idea that it would be wonderful to be a physicist or a mathematician maybe 500 years ago around the time of Newton when there were really fundamental things just lying around to be discovered. -David Chalmers

I'm not a big fan of flying. I definitely try to take the bus whenever I can. I've gotten a little bit better about it, but it was a pretty crippling thing for many years. I feel safer in a private plane. -Martina McBride

I would think flying would be pretty cool. You would be able to fly away from all your enemies and get where you're going much faster. But being invisible? You probably wouldn't use that for the good of man. -Randy Johnson

So while I was in college I did a little study on the freight industry, the air freight industry. And I looked at this company called Flying Tiger. And I actually put a thousand dollars in it and I remember I thought this air cargo was going to be a thing of the future. -Peter Lynch

But human beings fall easily into despair, and from the very beginning we invented stories that enabled us to place our lives in a larger setting, that revealed an underlying pattern, and gave us a sense that, against all the depressing and chaotic evidence to the contrary, life had meaning and value. -Karen Armstrong

But, actually, it is only Americans who say that our freedoms and prosperity are the reason foreigners hate us. If you ask the foreigners, they make it clear that it's America's bullying foreign policy they detest. -Harry Browne

If you commit perjury in a so-called first-degree murder case, and you're caught red-handed for the entire world to see, and you get only a $200 fine, what kind of message does that send about lying in our courts? -Johnnie Cochran

If we were to abandon concern for what is true, what is false, and what remains indeterminate, the world would be totally chaotic. Even those who deny the importance of truth, on the one hand, are quick to jump on anyone who is caught lying. -Howard Gardner

Some designers retain a sense of humour about what they do, but others are deathly serious and have no life outside of it; they're lying awake night after night constructing dresses in their heads. -Helena Christensen

One of the things I learned is that you've got to deal with the underlying social problems if you want to have an impact on crime – that it's not a coincidence that you see the greatest amount of violent crime where you see the greatest amount of social dysfunction. -Eric Holder

When I'm running fast, I don't feel anything, it's effortless, it's like my feet don't even touch the ground, it's like I'm flying. -Evelyn Ashford

Building a little bonfire at night on the beach and lying on a blanket with my wife under the stars is not only sexy, it's romantic. -Benjamin Bratt

People equate success with youth. And if you haven't had a certain amount of success by a certain time in your life, it's never going to happen. There's a fear about that. So people start lying about their age really young. I've never done that because I think it's so insignificant. -Jennifer Jason Leigh

Bullying is a national epidemic. -Macklemore

As an actor you have to wait for someone to cast you, so you're relying on the business. -Mia Wasikowska

I don't mean to beat a made-in-America drum, but I would be lying if I said it doesn't feel somehow right to be printing books in the U.S. -Dave Eggers

I don't like comedy that I think is bad comedy, where people are trying to be sick for the sake of it, where there's no intellectual point behind it. I like stuff that's got an underlying point of view. -Steve Coogan

People are constantly applying double standards. Take the United States, for example. Washington wants the whole world to admire the country for its democracy. Then the government sends out its army, in the name of this democracy, and leaves behind the kind of chaos we see in Iraq. -Jacob Zuma

I do love the idea of being able to take an MP to court for lying. There are ways and means of taking an MP to court just now, but it is very difficult. -Mark Thomas

My flag is always flying. My shingle is always out. I'm always looking for movie ideas. -Alexander Payne

I haven't personally experienced bullying, but when I was in high school, I had a best friend who became a bully. I took a stand and took it upon myself to separate from her. I couldn't be associated with her because it wasn't the type of person I wanted to be. -Amber Riley

I'm not one of those famous people flying round the world emoting over every catastrophe. I'm too feeble. -Kristin Scott Thomas

Actors are a lot like professors on dissertation committees – it's a lot of ego, a lot of rallying for position, there is a lot at stake in every single interaction. -Mayim Bialik

Bullying is a terrible, terrible thing. -Robert Carlyle

During the long process of history, by relying on our own diligence, courage and wisdom, Chinese people have opened up a good and beautiful home where all ethnic groups live in harmony and fostered an excellent culture that never fades. -Xi Jinping

I'm actually incapable of lying. I'm like a parody of a person who can't lie. -Busy Philipps

I don't seem to require a lot of sleep. I just – if I get four, five good hours, I'm fine. But sleeping is sort of dull. There's a lot of other good stuff that you can do without just lying down and closing your eyes. -Betty White

I don't like lying around on the beach. I like to be busy. -Carrie Preston

Back in 2007, I had the opportunity to meet Professor Stephen Hawking through the X PRIZE Foundation. In my first conversation with him I learned that he was passionate about flying into space someday. -Peter Diamandis

No band on 21st-century radio has mined pre-grunge hair-metal's sleaze like L.A.'s Buckcherry. So it makes poetic sense that they'd spend their sixth album tallying all seven deadly sins. -Chuck Eddy

I'm not big on lying. I don't like that at all. -Elizabeth Mitchell

We do students a great disservice by implying that one set of students is more important than another. -Johann Lamont

I'm not lying, every single project I've done, they've all been great. -Ken Jeong

I love flying so much. I even like airplane food. No one bothers you and your phone never goes off and you can't have emails go through. It's undisturbed. -Margot Robbie

Actually, I think I'm part of the last generation to grow up believing in magic and fairies and believing I had powers – you know, lying on the ground and trying to have my spirit leave my body – which never happened; still working on that bit. -Alice Englert

Teen movies often have an unspoken underlying premise in which high school is seen as less serious than the adult world. But when your head is encased in that microcosm it's the most serious time of your life. -Rian Johnson

I realized that bullying never has to do with you. It's the bully who's insecure. -Shay Mitchell

I hate flying. I don't like planes. I get really anxious. -Lucy Hale

Melissa McCarthy just opened this new movie, 'Identity Thief,' and Rex Reed, who's a known critic, wrote a scathing commentary on her weight. I think that weight designation is one of the last frontiers of bullying. I don't know what the right 'ism' for it is, but I think that there's a level of that that's happening that's certainly not okay. -Josh Gad

When I was a kid, we went to St. Augustine, Fla., and I was lying on the couch one night with a Q-tip, cleaning my ear out after I'd taken a shower. I hit my arm on something, jabbed the Q-tip through my ear drum, busted my ear drum and couldn't get back in the water the rest of the time we were there. -Jason Aldean

In L.A., if you're in improv, and you're on those stages, all the big agents and managers and producers are watching those shows. They're not flying to Chicago to see the show. People are booking jobs off the stages in L.A. who aren't more talented than the guys in Chicago. But the most guys book out of L.A., and the second is New York. -Jake Johnson

When my son was born, and after a day of lying-in I was told that I could leave the hospital and take him home, I burst into tears. It wasn't the emotion of the moment: it was shock and horror. -Susan Orlean

I finally overcame my phobia, and now I approach flying with a sort of studied boredom – a learned habit, thanks to my learn-to-fly-calmly training – but like all former flying phobics, I retain a weird and feverish fascination with aviation news, especially bad news. -Susan Orlean

You can find out anything you want about a car now, and especially every bit of information about the price, without relying on the dealers. -Susan Orlean

I take goldenseal, Echinacea and cod liver oil when flying to boost my immune system. -Janelle Monae

Writing stories is the habit of lying put to good use. -Julianna Baggott

The whole bullying issue has really struck a nerve with me. It affects so many different types of people at a vital time in their lives. -Kenny Wormald

Flying is like the ultimate superpower; it's just, like, the coolest thing. -Logan Henderson

Religious speech is extreme, emotional, and motivational. It is anti-literal, relying on metaphor, allusion, and other rhetorical devices, and it assumes knowledge within a community of believers. -Amy Waldman

If someone's lying about something small, you don't know what else they're lying about. I'm a big girl, I can handle the truth – even if it's not good news. -Jennifer Morrison

Anyone who says there isn't pressure to look good as an actor in L.A. is lying. -Camilla Luddington

It's cool to have instruments lying around because they give you different ideas. -Ezra Koenig

As a producer, I try to bring as many nice people as I can to insure that there's no screaming, there's no shouting, there's no bullying. The more of those kind of people that you can bring together, the better the experience everyone has on set. -Lorenzo di Bonaventura

When I tell people I work to stop hazing in high schools I am almost always met with shocked expressions. 'High school? Really? I thought that was something that only arrogant frat guys do in college.' But it's true – as long as I have worked on preventing bullying in high schools, I have worked to prevent hazing. -Rosalind Wiseman

By the time a child reaches out to an adult, the vast majority of kids have been dealing with the bullying and trying to ignore it for a long time. -Rosalind Wiseman

Sometimes bullies are your friends and very rarely do bullying prevention tips acknowledge this fact or what to do about it. -Rosalind Wiseman

I've always been fascinated and stared at maps for hours as a kid. I've especially been most intrigued by the uninhabited or lonelier places on the planet. Like Greenland, for instance, or just recently flying over Alaska and a chain of icy, mountainous islands, uninhabited. -Andrew Bird

Going after a part in Hollywood is like being a gladiator in ancient Rome. When it comes down to getting a role, you don't have any friends, you're incredibly competitive and any actor who tells you different is lying. -Jonathan Rhys Meyers

All of us in society are supposed to believe that cruelty to animals is wrong and that it is a good thing to prevent needless suffering. So if that is true, how can meat be acceptable under any but the most extraordinary circumstances, such as perhaps roasting the bird who died flying into a window? -Ingrid Newkirk

Actors are pretending for you, but they're not lying. They are not putting on a guise instead of themselves. They are finding things inside that they have experienced. -Mike Mills

I went through a lot of bullying early on. Girls made my life a living hell. We had come to America from a different country. My brother and I had accents. It was very tough. -Nicki Minaj

Online bullying has to stop. -LeAnn Rimes

A great deal of my battle, as an actor, is to whittle away the things that make me self-conscious and try to trick myself into not being self-conscious. So, it's always a challenge, whether I'm lying in a hospital bed or flying around with a rocket pack on my back, or what have you. On the best of days, it's a challenge for me. -Billy Campbell

I used to make my manager Jamie not tell me where I was going to be the next day, because I was so afraid of flying and of anything. But now I love flying, I love working hard, I love being around the world. -Ellie Goulding

As with most phobias, the fear of flying does make some sense, but if ever there was a fear worth quashing then this is it. After all, life is short, and there's a great big world to explore out there. -Beth Ditto

The reason I was able to grow my business was that every day, after producing 30 minutes of wine television, I spent 15 hours a day replying to every single person's e-mail and every single person's Twitter @ reply. -Gary Vaynerchuk

'Robopocalypse' joins a proud tradition of techno-apocalyptic tales, stretching from high-flying Icarus, to Frankenstein's monster, and to many a giant radioactive creature who has crashed the streets of Tokyo. And then, of course, there's the Terminator. -Daniel H. Wilson

Stephen King, by far, is the standard-bearer. I think anyone who writes suspense fiction and says that King isn't an influence is either lying or being foolish. I read his book 'On Writing' before I read pretty much any of his fiction. -Michael Koryta

I don't like the bullying, do-one-over style of comedy. It's so cheap. -Olivia Colman

There's a delicious irony in seeing private luxury jets flying in to Washington, D.C., and people coming off of them with tin cups in their hands saying that they're going to be trimming down and streamlining their businesses. There's a message there. -Gary Ackerman

With the birth of my first child and my involvement with my first husband, I basically stopped lying. I just didn't want to lie anymore, because it reduces the stature of the person you're lying to. -Cybill Shepherd

We have to take the biblical truth and start applying it in the statehouse, the schoolhouse, and the marketplace. -Rod Parsley

I came into politics because I wished to change things. You can't do that by lying to people; you have to educate, and persuade, and carry them with you – and it's often a long haul. -Ken Livingstone

My inclination, as an old-school, classically trained journalist, is not to go with a story unless I have it hard. It's not good enough to say something based on rumors that were flying around. -Wolf Blitzer

They say it's not the snoring itself but those anxiety-packed moments in between snorts. It's the waiting for the nasal passages of the person lying beside you to strike again. And strike it always does. In the dark, almost against your will, you produce that special glare reserved for people who cannot control their own behaviour. -Sloane Crosley

I was not born in a home where there were stereotypes. So that was very useful because it gave me the sense of possibilities, of flying, if I may say, of making my hopes and dreams a reality. -Michelle Bachelet

In my latter years I've decided that there's too much to keep track of when you go into the lying game. That becomes stressful and it's not for me anymore. -Max Greenfield

Before I was going to be an actress, I was going to be a veterinarian! I thought I was one as a child. I was the kid who was like, 'Daddy! I want a kitty! It needs a mommy!' And my dad was such a sucker. Every time I would beg, with tears flying down my face, about how this animal needs love, needs a home. He would cave. -AnnaLynne McCord

A good two years after Hurricane Katrina I remember feeling so devastated and so ignorant that there was so much damage still left. I felt like here I was an American and this is an American city and the government hasn't done enough and people haven't given back enough. Everyone forgot and the city was lying in waste. -AnnaLynne McCord

I lived for going down the rabbit hole of meeting weird people. Of course, come Monday I would be tallying up all the different situations, and each one was progressively more dangerous. I got lucky in that I didn't go to jail. -Dax Shepard

Flying solo, you have a fair workload. I'm not only flying the balloon but doing the navigation, communications, repairing the burners, taking care of the equipment. -Steve Fossett

Nobody can hide their birthdays anymore, so there's no point in lying. -Jessica Walter

The truth of the matter is, beauty is a specific thing, rare and fleeting. Some of us have it in our teens, 20s and 30s and then lose it; most of us have it not at all. And that's perfectly okay. But lying to yourself that you have it when you don't seems to me simple-minded at best and psychotic at worst. -Julie Burchill

I'll tell you something that's completely true – you can, as a man, obtain everything you want with the truth. If you lie, first of all you've got to be a very good lying actor, which is tres difficile. And it's going to give you poison inside the body. -Jean Reno

There is no conclusive proof of Unidentified Flying Objects flying over India-China border. -A. K. Antony

Basically, most good science in space flight has to do with the behavior of the human body in space. That is where we are lacking info, and where info can only be obtained by flying in space. -Charles Simonyi

You don't appreciate life until you get to the other side. Like lying in a hospital bed. -Fabrice Muamba

Kids today aren't listening to music audio-only. They're picking up a CD and looking at the lyric sheet and wondering why the pictures aren't moving around. Who wants to do that? It's like Bam Bam Flintstone hanging with the dinosaurs vs. Elroy Jetson who's flying around space. If I'm a kid, I wanna be kicking it with Elroy. -will.i.am

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

On first listening, Joni Mitchell's 'Court And Spark,' the first truly great pop album of 1974, sounds surprisingly light; by the third or fourth listening, it reveals its underlying tensions. -Jon Landau

I avoid the young adult section altogether if possible, although it's sometimes fun to catch a girl lying on the floor, reading 'Gossip Girl.' -Cecily von Ziegesar

In the forensic science course I took at university they used photographs of dead bodies. For ballistics they showed us a guy lying on the floor, and his head had burst. -Denise Mina

Gym traumaramas can happen to anyone. One time, I brought a packet of papers to read while jogging on the treadmill. Right when I was in the middle of my run, I dropped them and they flew everywhere! Pages went flying all over the place and got in the way of other people working out. -Jenna Ushkowitz

I can't ever seem to shake the feeling that when things are really good it essentially means that things are going to go really bad. When I feel calm and settled, there is always an underlying feeling of impending doom… I don't think that it's healthy. -Florence Welch

When my mother died, my father was in a crisis, my sister was in a crisis, everyone was in a crisis. I went round the night my mother was lying in the kitchen, and I organised everything, from the undertaker to the funeral… I looked after everybody, I sorted it all out and I've done so ever since. -Stuart Rose

I don't thrive on stress. I love lying on the deck on our houseboat reading a book. -Bear Grylls

Anyone who says they don't like to receive a gift is lying. -Dita Von Teese

Tweeting is a very personal form of expression. Who else could talk about my son refusing to wear a suit to meet the Pope, my husband flying a helicopter, or take a twitpic from our home? -Queen Rania of Jordan

For many, the hijab represents modesty, piety and devotion to God, and I truly respect that. But the hijab should not be used as a means of applying social pressure on people. -Queen Rania of Jordan

Short naps are good. Given modern workplace demands, this is not possible for many people – but if you have the option, try napping for ten to twenty minutes in the afternoon, preferably lying down in a darkened room. -Andrew Weil

I am terrified of flying. I am a wreck right before I get on an airplane. That, and the ocean. I can only get in there for 10 minutes, I have this strong urge to run out and I won't go back in for the rest of the day. I've always been like that. -Kyle Gallner

Any person who says their family is perfectly functional is lying. -Martha MacIsaac

Growing up in a Canadian household that was more British than Big Ben, I dreamed of flying to England myself and visiting the places my family never tired of talking about. I always woke up before the plane landed. -Alan Bradley

Reviewers and critics can be overly cynical. If something the least bit sentimental comes up, they'll often start flying off the handle. But I'm like, 'Wait a minute, you've had those times in your life. Everybody has.' -Gilbert Hernandez

I would imagine that the more time you spend talking to another person, the more you're going to lie to them. So if you spend a lot of time with your relations, you're probably lying a lot to them. -David Chase

Childhood depression tends to be more common in inner cities, being most frequently related to serious social deprivation, bullying, domestic violence, wartime experience and famine. It is, for example, a serious problem among children who are traumatised refugees. -Robert Winston

Although religion might be useful in developing a solid moral framework – and enforcing it – we can quite easily develop moral intuitions without relying on religion. -Robert Winston

For nearly two years, I was flying above the planet with my camera. I knew straight away that this was something important to do, just at this moment, a portrait of the planet for the millennium year. I worked in 80 countries, fighting for money all the time. -Yann Arthus-Bertrand

My father taught me things about body language that psychologists have been catching up with ever since. He always knew when I was lying, because my posture was all wrong. -Richard Griffiths

Today, people idolize athletes and celebrities – and yes, highly successful and visionary business people like Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, but not the innovators who perhaps have not seen such high-flying levels of success. Can anyone name the inventors of GPS, which has such a huge impact on our lives today? -Naveen Jain

My phobias worsen as I get older. I'm scared of flying, driving. I'm terrified of sharks. I'm a germaphobe. But I try to face my fears; I do. Well, most of them. -Eli Roth

Magic is an art form where you lie and tell people you are lying. -Teller

I once stole a book. It was really just the once, and at the time I called it borrowing. It was 1970, and the book, I could see by its lack of date stamps, had been lying unappreciated on the shelves of my convent school library since its publication in 1945. -Hilary Mantel

Saying what you believe others want to hear is, of course, a form of lying. -Karl Ove Knausgard

Everyone in America likely has a bullying story, whether as the victim, bully or as a witness. -Mike Honda

When I write nonfiction, it's always absolutely true. There will be no moment in my nonfiction where I have made something up and have to apologize to the bullying hostess of a talk show. -Jamaica Kincaid

I read like an animal. I read under the covers, I read lying in the grass, I read at the dinner table. While other people were talking to me, I read. -Nicole Krauss

I was a theater dork in high school and did all the plays. My theater teacher in high school, Janet Spahr, was absolutely incredible and mentored me throughout school. She taught me a lot about relying on my instincts. -Melissa Rauch

I have so many miles and I've been flying for so long that every time I fly, it's first class. It's one of those things that, if I needed to jump on a plane, and fly to Spain tomorrow, I know I could get it done. Just like that. -Lupe Fiasco

Unless and until our society recognizes cyber bullying for what it is, the suffering of thousands of silent victims will continue. -Anna Maria Chavez

At Girl Scouts, we are committed to raising awareness about the terrible effects of cyber bullying, and to teaching girls how to recognize the signs of bullying of any sort and extricate themselves or another from a bad situation before it spirals out of control and ends in tragedy. -Anna Maria Chavez

When we're upset, our vocal cords tighten and we can't speak. And when I lie – well, I can't lie, because the same thing happens – everyone who knows me knows that when I start squeaking, I've started lying. -Aleksandar Hemon

These are moments in your life to be cherished; they don't come around that often. To be flying around in a 'Game of Thrones' jet, to be greeted by massive enthusiasts. -Natalie Dormer

I find 'Edward Scissorhands' a very inspiring movie – it's one of the first movies about bullying, in a way – about being treated unkindly for being different. -Denise Di Novi

It's a weird thing about the truth: It protects you. What really makes you vulnerable is when you're lying because you're going to get caught. When you tell the truth, there's a strange relief that comes. -Eve Ensler

The criticism is, once I get something flying, I lose interest in it. -Burt Rutan

By 1931, after a few years' experience of flying scheduled airlines, those planes were operating at roughly 600 times the safety of the space shuttle. I look at safety not in terms of fatalities per passenger-mile, but when you get in and close the door, what is the risk of dying on this flight? -Burt Rutan

I spent about seven years during the Vietnam War flight-testing airplanes for the Air Force. And then I went in and I had a lot of fun building airplanes that people could build in their garages. And some 3,000 of those are flying. Of course, one of them is around-the-world Voyager. -Burt Rutan

Terrorism needs to be fought against and certainly delegitimized or attacked, but some of the underlying grievances that might in fact lead individuals astray to terrorism cannot be ignored. -John O. Brennan

I often have trouble falling asleep at night, so when I'm lying in bed I think up stories. That's where I do a lot of my thinking. I also get a lot of ideas while I'm reading – sometimes reading someone else's stories will make me think of one of my own. -Linda Sue Park

There is no progress without risk, and in an environment where change is accelerating, risks are multiplying and businesses are increasingly complex, companies need strong, innovative partners to help manage their risk. Our brand clearly sets XL apart as the strong, innovative partner needed in today's market. -Mike McGavick

The true treasure lies within. It is the underlying theme of the songs we sing, the shows we watch and the books we read. It is woven into the Psalms of the Bible, the ballads of the Beatles and practically every Bollywood film ever made. What is that treasure? Love. Love is the nature of the Divine. -Radhanath Swami

After my father died when I was seven and my mother entered into an abusive relationship, I shuffled between houses – staying with friends, families from church, and relying on the kindness of teachers and people throughout my community to help me grow up essentially without parents. -Ronnie Musgrove

When we've been bold on the Bank of England, on PFI, on great constitutional change, on the New Deal, we've been most successful. So what we have to continue to try and do is to battle with ideas and find new ways of applying those values as the world changes. -John Reid

All things being equal, letting people make decisions for themselves will produce smarter outcomes, collectively, than relying on government planners. -James Surowiecki

When you catch yourself lying to your therapist, you know it's a waste of money. -Jay McInerney

I spent a lot of winters in my childhood flying kites with my brother, with my cousins, with friends in the neighborhood. It's what we did in the winter. Schools close down. There was not much to do. -Khaled Hosseini

In both word and deed, one of the greatest idlers of all time was John Lennon. In his songs we see repeated defences of simply lying around doing nothing. -Tom Hodgkinson

Being lazy does not mean that you do not create. In fact, lying around doing nothing is an important, nay crucial, part of the creative process. It is meaningless bustle that actually gets in the way of productivity. All we are really saying is, give peace a chance. -Tom Hodgkinson

It is extraordinary how safe flying has become. You are now statistically more likely to be elected president of the United States in your lifetime than you are to die in a plane crash. What an amazing achievement as a society! But what we end up focusing on are the catastrophic failures that are incredibly rare but happen every now and then. -Steven Johnson

Natural playgrounds may decrease bullying. -Richard Louv

I'm lively when I perform and I always put everything into a show, but when I get home I love lying down in front of the TV and relaxing. -John Barrowman

I was very precocious when I was young. I went to college at 16, and I graduated at 20. I wanted to be a writer, but I was more interested in experience than in applying myself intellectually. -Rachel Kushner

I am definitely a Type A personality, always rushing around, trying to do too much, not good at just lying on the beach. But I'm so thankful for everything I have: wonderfully supportive parents and sisters, the best husband in the world, terrific students I love teaching and hanging out with, and above all, my two amazing daughters. -Amy Chua

I did some research once on the way people in the past imagined the year 2000. They tended to picture the things they already had getting more sophisticated – flying cars, self-cleaning windows. And the folks in the early 1900s had a wildly optimistic estimate of the future of pneumatic tubes. -Gail Collins

There are many benefits to a sports entity breaking news directly to their recipients: the entity has full control over the message and how it is shared versus previously relying on a media outlets to translate or distribute as they choose. Also, there's no quicker place for valuable information to spread than Twitter. -Amy Jo Martin

We'll continue to see more and more brands integrate social causes, charitable components and environmental issues as underlying themes to their campaigns and messaging. Humans connect with humans after all, and brands are using this as a point of connection to engage with their audience, especially charity-minded Generation Y. -Amy Jo Martin

What the mortgage bubble was all about was big banks like Goldman Sachs taking big bundles of subprime mortgages that were lent out largely to low-income, highly risky borrowers, and applying this kind of magic-pixie-dust math to these bundles of securities and slapping AAA ratings on them. -Matt Taibbi

Maybe we are all prospective migrants. The lines of national borders on maps are artificial constructs, as unnatural to us as they are to birds flying overhead. Our first impulse is to ignore them. -Mohsin Hamid

Camera lies all the time. It's all it does is lie, because when you choose this moment instead of this moment, when you… the moment you've made a choice, you're lying about something larger. 'Lying' is an ugly word. I don't mean lying. But any artist picks and chooses what they want to paint or write about or say. Photographers are the same. -Richard Avedon

When I was in art school, there was a stigma attached to coming from comfortable suburbia. If you were from Great Neck, Long Island, you couldn't be a 'real artist', so I found crafty ways of implying that I was from New York. -Laurie Simmons

What is a philosophy? It Is an answer satisfactory to the reason to all the great problems of life. That is what is meant by philosophy. It must satisfy the reason, and it must show the unity underlying the endless diversity of the facts that science observes. -Annie Besant

'Flying Down to Rio' established RKO as a leader in musical film production throughout the 1930s. The film helped to rescue the studio from its financial straits and it gave a real boost to my movie career. -Ginger Rogers

While I was making my solo films, RKO was busily trying to get me and Fred Astaire back together. The studio wanted to capitalize on the success of 'Flying Down to Rio' and realized that the pairing of Rogers and Astaire had moneymaking potential. -Ginger Rogers

I have a hard time keeping a story straight when I tell the truth because when you start lying you have to remember what you said, and I'm not very good at that. -Lisa Vanderpump

My day-to-day local issues are rooted in an underlying fear of death. -Alex Karpovsky

When I was living in Los Angeles, I always booked a moisturizing milk-and-honey massage the day before flying to Spain. It was heaven – I never got dry plane skin or felt stiff from sitting in one position. -Carolina Herrera

It's so nerve-wracking to be on a set. They're the most stressful place in the world, because you're making something permanent, and there are so many people relying on you in a lot of ways. -Jesse Eisenberg

I think aerobatic flying is athletic. I don't do aerobatic flying, but I would put that in a category of a sport. I would put regular flying in the category of an art or machine-type thing. -John Travolta

I believe photos is one of the underlying things in every social network that becomes successful. -Kevin Systrom

I'm very lazy when it comes to making the original sound. I don't go through amplifiers and different compressors and signal parts. I just grab something, whether its an old guitar or a children's toy that happens to be lying around, and record it straight into the computer. -Imogen Heap

I just don't know when we all decided that if it doesn't fit in a Happy Meal box, it's not for kids. I remember flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, and I grew up watching Monty Python. I think that kids can handle a lot more than we give them credit for, especially when it comes to the absurd. -Gore Verbinski

For us as entertainers traveling, the schedule gets really crazy – flying all the time, being on a bus tour, changing hotels every day. And it's challenging. -Sheila E.

The best crime novels are all based on people keeping secrets. All lying – you may think a lie is harmless, but you put them all together and there's a calamity. -Alafair Burke

Too little is it considered, while we gaze on aristocratic beauty, how much good food, soft lying, warm wrapping, ease of mind, have to do with the attractions which command our admiration. -Samuel Lover

The right of absolute and irresponsible dominion is the right of property, and the right of property is the right of absolute, irresponsible dominion. The two are identical; the one necessarily implying the other. -Lysander Spooner

We need to do teacher training to educate them about what temperament means. Shyness is painful and you want to help a child with shyness – but the underlying temperament of being a careful, sensitive person is to be honoured, valued and respected. -Susan Cain

I am interested in imperfections, quirkiness, insanity, unpredictability. That's what we really pay attention to anyway. We don't talk about planes flying; we talk about them crashing. -Tibor Kalman

In the heyday of the Oscars, there were electric sparks flying. When Cher went in her fabulous Bob Mackie dress and her Mohawk, and Bjoerk with her swan dress. Then we thought it was bad taste; now I think it should have been the best dress because she stood out. -Andre Leon Talley

Flying is one of the safest jobs in the Army as long as you don't drop out. If you do drop out, you are a dead man, and dropping out means, usually, that you have made a mistake or let go of your grip. -Eddie Rickenbacker

I've had this underlying need to go to a place and meet people who are on the other end of the portion of my tax money that goes to fund the U.S. and other militaries. -Rachel Corrie

I started dancing when I saw Fred Astaire in 'Flying Down to Rio,' at approximately nine years old. Fred Astaire influenced me, more than anything, to be in 'show business.' -Stanley Donen

Flying into a storm, even its outer edges, did not seem like a good idea to me. And this was no ordinary tempest. Everyone on the bridge knew what it was: the Devil's Fist, a near-eternal typhoon that migrated about the North Indian basin year-round. She was infamous, and earned her name by striking airships out of the sky. -Kenneth Oppel

I live and work alone and travel light, relying largely on my memory and making a point of letting intuition guide my way. -Lyall Watson

This was 1978, when flying was still an occasion, a special grand event that took planning and care. I worked as a TWA flight attendant then. I stood in my Ralph Lauren uniform at the boarding door and smiled at the passengers through lips coated with lipstick that perfectly matched the stripe on my jacket. Mostly, the passengers smiled back. -Ann Hood

Social enables word of mouth at an unprecedented scale. Its most powerful effect, through reviews and recommendations, is to put product quality and value for money as the key to success in commerce. Social brings a level of transparency that prevents marketers from advertising their way to success without underlying product quality. -Roelof Botha

It was on the first day of Beltaine, that is called now May Day, the Tuatha de Danaan came, and it was to the north-west of Connacht they landed. But the Firbolgs, the Men of the Bag, that were in Ireland before them, and that had come from the South, saw nothing but a mist, and it lying on the hills. -Lady Gregory

I'm an investor in MakerBot, which is a good example of the 'thingiverse'. The idea of applying collaboration and rapid iteration to things that we interact with and hold in our hands every day is super revolutionary. -Matt Mullenweg

The big reason why we don't have space colonies and regular trips to the moon is that flying into outer space is just plain 'hard.' The business of safely transporting people off the Earth is a costly affair that requires a lot of technology. -Ben Parr

Most estimates of the mortality risk posed by asteroid impacts put it at about the same risk as flying in a commercial airliner. However, you have to remember that this is like the entire human race riding the plane – it is one of the few risks that really could wipe us all out. -Nathan Myhrvold

With cult foods, there is an underlying assumption that the best cooking ideas came generations ago. Yet culinary innovation is nothing to be ashamed of. When a chef tells me he is cooking with his grandmother's recipe, I always wonder why. Did talent skip the past two generations? -Nathan Myhrvold

I hadn't realized quite how extraordinary Charles Lindbergh's achievement was in flying the Atlantic alone. He had never flown over open water before, but he flew straight to Dingle Bay in Ireland and then on to Paris, exactly as planned. -Bill Bryson

The topic of trust is an important factor in all matters of the heart – and here's why. Men lie to women. Women lie to men. And most people agree that some lying is even necessary – to avoid petty squabbles and to grease the wheels of a relationship. -Joyce Brothers

Teaching prejudice to a child is itself a form of bullying. You've got to be taught to hate. -Roger Ebert

Being a consultant is like flying first-class. The food is terrific, the drinks are cold. But all you can do is walk up to the pilot and say, 'bank left.' If you're in management, you have the controls. -Greg Brenneman

I have aspirations to try and compete professionally. Any golfer that competes in tournaments would be lying if they said they didn't. -Lucas Black

That is the biggest form of bullying ever, the paparazzi. Printing lies, making accusations, it's just bullying. -Mila Kunis

I had a high-flying career. Never wanted to get married. All I wanted to do was have some fun. -Cindy Gallop

Sometimes it just means flying from Bogota to New York via Amsterdam to have a day with your kids. When we spend time with them, I think we do our utmost best to be really with them – on vacations or during weekends or even at breakfast in the morning. -Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands

Dealers always like to sell chairs in sets of four, six, or eight. And they charge a premium for supplying the whole set. Individual chairs, though, go for much lower prices, and if you carry around a reference photo of the chairs you want, you may be able to build up a cut-price collection, chair by chair. -Judith Miller

You watch these reality shows and say, 'Oh, I would do that, except for eating all the gross stuff.' These reality shows are like everyone's little guilty pleasure. To have an opportunity to be on one, why not? Anybody who says, 'No, I don't want to be on one' is kind of lying in the back of their heads. -Cris Judd

It's no surprise that the Bush administration's bullying swagger and blithe ignorance have caused much of the Muslim world to hold the U.S. in rock-bottom regard. -Graydon Carter

China needs a currency that reflects underlying economic fundamentals. -Henry Paulson

Any kind of restrictions put on free speech would have worse consequences than bullying. -Lady Starlight

When people see political ads, they think someone's lying to them. -Mark McKinnon

The GOP cannot expect to win the presidency in the future by simply relying on running up big numbers with white voters. -Mark McKinnon

The most common mistakes women make when applying makeup are not applying it in the proper light and not using their hands as blending tools. -Bobbi Brown

I grew up and I kind of took the road of becoming a pilot, which was another dream I had of flying, and once I did attend the air force academy, that dream of flying became more like a project, and I wanted to be a fighter pilot, which I did. I became a fighter pilot. -Luca Parmitano

At its very heart, Worldchanging is about using the best of people's new ideas, bringing them together and applying them to the massive problems that we all face. -Alex Steffen

Meditation, especially for people who don't know very much about it and think it's this very hippy dippy thing, can really be powerful, terrifying even, as it lifts the rug up on your subconscious and the dust comes flying out. -Amanda Palmer

I came up with idea of a solar airplane flying around the world with no fuel – that would be a beautiful message in terms of technology, the energy of the future and the environment. -Bertrand Piccard

I love skating and sparkling and flying around the ice, and people clap for you. It's an amazing feeling. -Johnny Weir

The Fed should make a clear commitment to stable money to reduce the swings in interest rates and inflation. Instead, it champions and flaunts unstable money. This encourages momentum trading and the growth of derivatives. Meanwhile, layers of financial regulation make Washington bigger and more powerful but don't fix the underlying problems. -David Malpass

When you see government leaders really bullying business, you know that government's economic policy is failing. They get angry and they get desperate. -Amity Shlaes

I'm trying to photograph an old offshore oil city that is lying in decay in the Caspian Sea, but I've been having a hard time getting there. -Edward Burtynsky

Water, like many other resources, is harvested, transported and used throughout all aspects of society. Unlike other resources, water is critical to the survival of all forms of life. The underlying question that sits at the core of my exploration is to what degree can we shape water before it begins to shape us. -Edward Burtynsky

I'm not flying to the moon. But when I've talked to people who have been up, you can tell it's really special because without fail a very special light comes into their eyes and they appear to be very fulfilled in some way and very calm. -Sarah Brightman

I do quite a lot of flying in my concerts. -Sarah Brightman

I've had fish come up on stage, and it's pretty disgusting. I try and discourage that. I discourage anything flying up on stage, actually. -Les Claypool

For me, growing up and going to school and not seeing any anti-bullying posters and not hearing people talk about bullying was very desolate. -Shane Koyczan

Bullying, to me, starts very small around the kindergarten age where the first thing we learn is to call each other names. Something so small can be so long lasting in someone's life. -Shane Koyczan

We now know that we cannot continue to put ever-increasing amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. Actions have consequences. In fact, the consequences of past actions are already in the pipeline. Global temperatures are rising. Glaciers are melting. Sea levels are rising. Extreme weather events are multiplying. -Cary Fowler

One of the things I don't like about film is its incredible immersive quality. It's kind of bullying – it's very big, it's very flashy, it's got a lot of weight and it throws it around almost to the detriment of the rest of our culture. -Alan Moore

There's no shame in stealing – any actor who says he doesn't is lying. You steal from everything. -Benedict Cumberbatch

The universe is incredibly wondrous, incredibly beautiful, and it fills me with a sense that there is some underlying explanation that we have yet to fully understand. If someone wants to place the word 'God' on those collections of words, it's OK with me. -Brian Greene

In my own research when I'm working with equations, I never feel like I really understand what I'm doing if I'm solely relying on the mathematics for my understanding. I need to have a visual picture in my mind. I'm constantly translating from the math to some intuitive mind's-eye picture. -Brian Greene

In my teenage years I was put off the idea of a career in flying, because I'd convinced myself that you had to be a boffin with degrees in maths and physics, which were my weakest subjects. -Bruce Dickinson

The big question is always, 'Eyes or lips?' I tend to go with the eyes because I've got a lot more material to work with now – and it saves me from reapplying lipstick! I'm a pretty low-maintenance person and it's too excessive to exaggerate both the eyes and lips. -Claire Danes

There's a major underlying idea as you grow up that you need to just save your money and get that affordable housing at the edge of town where you're away from the city where all the crime happens or whatever. -Conor Oberst

I don't like people lying to me. I don't like people who don't return my calls. I don't like people who won't give me a straight answer. I don't like those kinds of people, and I've been vocal about it. -Dan Aykroyd

I'd be lying if I said, 'No,' to wanting a lot of kids. -Gisele Bundchen

One day I would love to do rock a gig on the moon – how rad would that be? Isn't Richard Branson flying planes to outer space? Motley Crue could be the first band to play on the moon. -Tommy Lee

I never had a business plan. I did, actually – I'm lying. My business plan was to get lucky, and I did; that was great. And then my second business plan was to get lucky again, and there, I faltered. -Val Kilmer

Hoping to instill my love of learning in other children, I taught my first class at a local elementary school the year my first book, 'Flying Fingers,' debuted; since then, I have spoken at hundreds of schools, classrooms and conferences around the world. -Adora Svitak

I have a problem with bullying. -Cindy Morgan

We should find inspiration in the senses that already exist and try to copy them and apply them to us. If we compare our senses to the senses of other animals and species that we don't have, we can get ideas for new abilities that we can adapt to humans by applying cybernetics to the body. -Neil Harbisson

It's strange that we create tech and then we apply it to machines, when we could apply it to ourselves. Cars can now detect if something is behind them, but we don't have this ability. Why are we applying such a simple sense to a car when we could apply it to ourselves? -Neil Harbisson

The bigger the network, the harder it is to leave. Many users find it too daunting to start afresh on a new site, so they quietly consent to Facebook's privacy bullying. -Evgeny Morozov

America is an empire. I hope you know that now. All empires, by definition, are bumbling, shambolic, bullying, bureaucratic affairs, as certain of the rightness of their cause in infancy, as they are corrupted by power in their dotage. -Felix Dennis

I was flying to the Maldives in 2000 when the plane went through turbulence – after that, I didn't fly for four years. Then a job came up in India, so I did a simulator flight and learnt about what goes on in the cockpit. I'm fine now. -Paul Merton

I think when you look at architectural photography it doesn't help to have piles of old clothes lying on the floor. Architectural photography sets up an artifice. -Annabelle Selldorf

Those in powerless positions aren't about to complain about bullying bosses, abusive supervisors or corrupt co-workers. There is no safe way to do so and no process that promises redress. -Margaret Heffernan

If I'm flying to China, I can sit and think about a problem. Other scientists have to go to the lab. I'm always thinking about maths, even when I'm doing other things. A lot of the time you're going up blind alleys and it's very frustrating, but then you have a sudden rush of ideas. You can live off that for quite some time. -Marcus du Sautoy

On 'Death Valley,' I fought this werewolf, and he was picking me up and slamming me down. They put padding down in the garbage so he could really slam me down. They're flying around and I'm doing these jumping flying triangles pulling the guy down. It's just fun. -Caity Lotz

Being on a trapeze is like dreaming. I feel totally outside of myself when I'm flying. You know, designing shoes, my imagination is flying in my drawings. -Christian Louboutin

My provocative statement is that we desperately need a serious, scientific theory of cities and scientific theory means quantifiable, relying on underlying generic principles that can be made in a – put into a predictive framework. That's the quest. -Geoffrey West

Everyone loves to fly, and flying underwater is even better than flying in air because there are things around you. -Graham Hawkes

Let's be cautious about relying so much on material things that we have no energy left for the spiritual aspects of our lives. -James A. Forbes

There is no problem that doesn't have some underlying need for more optimism, stamina, resilience and collaboration. And games are, I believe, the best platform we have for providing that. -Jane McGonigal

Human resources are like natural resources; they're often buried deep. You have to go looking for them; they're not just lying around on the surface. -Ken Robinson

If someone is lying to you, they'll generally look up to the top right. That means that they're trying to construct an image that doesn't exist. -Keith Barry

All men are body conscious. If they say they're not, they're lying. -Gilles Marini

Flying helicopters is what I do for fun. -Willard Wigan

I was a pilot and flying hang gliders, paragliders, aerobatics airplanes, and then I discovered skydiving. Free fall. Free. With nothing around you, just a parachute on your back. And you go down. But you don't feel like you're going down. Total freedom. -Yves Rossy

To be honest, I find most politicians very untrustworthy. When I listen to them talking – or rather, lying – I just feel there are very few politicians with integrity, so I never know who to bat for. -Jamie Sives

It's ridiculous, but it's horrible going bald. Anyone who says it isn't is lying. -James Nesbitt

Putting seven people in orbit should not cost more than flying a commercial jet around Earth. -Steve Jurvetson

The underlying sense of form in my work has been the system of the universe, or part thereof. For that is a rather large model to work from. -Alexander Calder

You can take lessons to become almost anything: flying lessons, piano lessons, skydiving lessons, acting lessons, race car driving lessons, singing lessons. But there's no class for comedy. You have to be born with it. God has to give you this gift. -Steve Harvey

You have nothing if you're texting a guy in a relationship. We can text six women a minute. We can text it and push 'reply all.' I mean, since we're lying, we might as well lie to everybody. -Steve Harvey

In Hollywood, they think drawn animation doesn't work anymore, computers are the way. They forget that the reason computers are the way is that Pixar makes good movies. So everybody tries to copy Pixar. They're relying too much on the technology and not enough on the artists. -Tim Burton

I was always a fan of the old-style comics. I loved vaudeville. I loved Milton Berle, Dick Shawn, Phyllis Diller, Don Rickles, Charlie Callas, all those guys. Hilarious. I love the Bing Crosby and Bob Hope movies, and Abbott & Costello. My television influences were 'Monty Python's Flying Circus,' 'Benny Hill,' and 'Hee Haw.' -Larry the Cable Guy

I would be lying if I said I cut out all dessert. When I'm training, I try to satisfy those cravings with a slightly healthier dessert, like a piece of dark chocolate or whipped cream and strawberries. Those are two of my favorites! -Josie Loren

I would be lying if I told you that I hadn't had aspirations to run for a statewide office. -Wendy Davis

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality – what a joke. In my district, we caught them lying to us about the results of air quality studies in the Barnett Shale. They are playing with the health and safety of our communities, and we are going to tell them that is not acceptable. -Wendy Davis

I've been out of work so many times in my life that relying too much on just one job is terrifying. -Chris Hardwick

If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic – being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago. -Elon Musk

I kind of do think of myself as a superhero and just flying high, and doing these crazy flips. -Gabby Douglas

Our enemy, the devil, wants to control us, and his target is our will. The main way he tries to influence our will is through lying to us. -Joyce Meyer

I've done some luxury flying, which is brilliant. It has only happened once or twice, but it was nice because flying is the worst part of the holiday. But then again, if the plane crashes, you're still dead. For that much money I'd want a little capsule that whizzed me off to safety if it was going to crash. -Karl Pilkington

It's a healthy thing to get some bad criticism. I'm still here and I'm fine, but I'd be lying if I said it didn't get to you reading the negative stuff. -Keeley Hawes

I don't see how you could get used to people screaming in your face, and anyone who says different is lying. -Niall Horan

There's something really interesting about having those close friends that you've had incredible times with but growing up and away from them. The underlying tensions, the shifting in the group dynamic, the little lies you tell to big yourself up: it's something that happens to us all. -John Simm

I love flying and kind of just fascinated with it, and to fly something like an F-22 would be a blast. -Stephen Colletti

When someone is bullying you, don't let it get to you. I remember my friends in school, someone said something mean to them, and they really let it get to them. And it really affected them. But I would just say try to ignore it as much as possible and just be yourself. -Kaitlyn Dever

My very first acting job was with Alan Parker on' Angela's Ashes,' but as a child, I had written to so many other productions just applying for any role. I always wanted to be an actress, and I did loads of acting summer schools. -Kerry Condon

I think that in an Internet age, content is content. As long as you can stand up on the merits of what you're doing right at that moment and aren't just relying on your success in doing something else, it's all good; people will respect you. -Riz Ahmed

Of course, I tweet. Tweeting is a very personal form of expression. Who else could talk about my son refusing to wear a suit to meet the Pope, my husband flying a helicopter, or take a twitpic from our home? -Queen Rania of Jordan

Those who have come into Formula One without experiencing cars devoid of electronic aids will find it tough. To control 800 horse power relying just on arm muscles and foot sensitivity can turn out to be a dangerous exercise. -Michael Schumacher

Unfortunately, as much as I am gullible, I also hate lying. I tend to tell the truth a lot… lying just isn't worth it. But I think I'm guilty of telling people that I'm 5 minutes away when really I'm about 45 or an hour away. -Monica Raymund

People don't understand being a child star is very hard because first off, to be a child star, you have to be very unique. These kids are talented to be able to do it at such a young age. At the same time, you go through the pressures of bullying and a lot of people not understanding. -Romeo Miller

There was quite a lot of lying around in fields at Stonar, a small independent girls' school in the country near Bath. It was a non-selective school and the right environment for me: academically not particularly pushy. -Romola Garai

I've always wanted to be accepted by country music fans – without lying. -Jennifer Warnes

I am trying to work out what my taste is, comedy-wise. I look up to stand up comedians who appear to be telling the truth, but I don't mind if they are lying. -Jessie Cave

When you're successful, there will be friends, people, VIPs rallying around you. When you're down and out, you're all alone. That's why it's important to be a good person. Because whether you're a successful cricketer or not can always change, but the respect you earn by being the person you are stays with you. -Suresh Raina

I would be lying if I said I'm not flattered being voted as the 'Time's' Most Desirable Man of 2012. Frankly, I have no idea how the desirability quotient is arrived at. If it is just drop dead good looks, then I have to thank God and my parents for it. -Arjun Rampal

I grew up thinking that I would become a fighter pilot and was fascinated by aircrafts as I had grown up around that. But my father encouraged me to not become an Air Force person, given the varied interests I had, be it books, movies, sports or fighter flying. -Kapil Sharma

It is not good to talk about Zen, because Zen is nothingness… If you talk about it, you are always lying, and if you don't talk about it, no one knows it is there. -Robert M. Pirsig

Vampires get the joy of flying around and living forever, werewolves get the joy of animal spirits. But zombies, they're not rich, or aristocratic, they shuffle around. They're a group phenomenon, they're not very fast, they're quite sickly. So what's the pleasure of being one? -Margaret Atwood

Fear paralyses you – fear of flying, fear of the future, fear of leaving a rubbish marriage, fear of public speaking, or whatever it is. -Annie Lennox

Our grandkids will lead the lives of the gods of mythology. Zeus could think and move objects around. We'll have that power. Venus had a perfect, timeless body. We'll have that, too. Pegasus was a flying horse. We'll be able to modify life in the future. -Michio Kaku

Baseball is a slow, boring, complex, cerebral game that doesn't lend itself to histrionics. You 'take in' a baseball game, something odd to say about a football or basketball game, with the clock running and the bodies flying. -Charles Krauthammer

Certainly in the movie business there are bullies all over – bullies in the distribution business, exhibition business, production. Fine-tuning adult bullying is different. When a bully is an adult, it's a whole different set of colors. -Martin Kove

When I started working on Southwest Airlines, I kid you not, only people flying on business and very wealthy people ever flew. -Herb Kelleher

Christian values were important at home. Cleanliness. Don't steal. Don't lie. Those were the rules, and they were strictly enforced. Especially the stealing and lying. When you broke the rules, you got a beating. I always broke the rules a lot. -Jimmy Cliff

There's a lot of thinking when you choreograph something. You're not just choreographing some bodies, arms, legs flying around to look cool. It's a lot more complicated and sophisticated. You also have to deal with the connection of the whole film, so when I choreograph, I think of the movement itself, the camera angles, the characters. -Donnie Yen

Only when you're in that ditch, lying there in the muddy runoff you've made of your life, gazing up at the peak you fell from, do you truly know how small you are and understand how tall you used to be. -Artie Lange

I'd be lying if I said Hollywood wasn't still an ambition; it's everyone's, isn't it? You're getting paid very well, you're working with great actors and great directors – who wouldn't want to be a part of that? But it's not going to break my heart if it doesn't happen. This business is about doing good work rather than how famous it makes you. -Max Beesley

I started visiting schools and talking to kids about bullying and what to do and how to deal with it. I don't think that there is one person who has lived life without being bullied. Everybody gets bullied – whether it's cyber-bullying or to your face or behind your back. -Sammi Hanratty

Anyone would be lying if they said they didn't get lonely at times. -George Clooney

My idea of relaxation is not lying down by a beach. I have to move around, do stuff. Though I'm a massive quiz show person. -Daniel Radcliffe

I'm interested in what happens to people when they get into that publicity machine. We tend to think things have changed, but there's still a deep sexism underlying the way women are treated publicly. -Erica Jong

I don't think that I had any idea that 'Fear of Flying' would become a part of the culture. I had no idea that it would go all over the world and be published in Chinese and Serbo-Croat and so on. -Erica Jong

I'm not a flying fan. I can't bear it. -Tamsin Egerton

I have a rule: I want the pilot flying me up in the air at 30,000 feet to make more than a guy working at Taco Bell. -Michael Moore

The underlying part of any comprehensive immigration bill is family unit. -Luis Gutierrez

To sing a song is like whispering to a child's ear. It is an art heavily relying on improvisation. -Andrea Bocelli

I have a couple freeloader friends, but it's okay. I know they're gonna come in with their arms flying in the air empty-handed. -Amy Sedaris

I think something will soon have to be done to protect people from hacking and blogging and lying and spreading rumors and chasing you down the street. Lives are wrecked that way. -Ali MacGraw

I grew up in airports and on air bases. I know what flying and airports can be. And most airports make me feel like we're about three per cent better than ants. Especially U.S. airports. They're zoos. All civility is gone. -Douglas Coupland

What makes it difficult for people trying to follow a dream is that the whole time you feel like you're slamming your head against the wall. So it's nice to make a breakthrough and not kind of lying there with your head bleeding. -Lewis Black

I haven't isolated myself. I am not living on a yacht somewhere. I am not tucked away or behind a gate somewhere. I am not flying on a private plane. I am going to the airport, I am with people, some of the interactions are good, some of them are not so good, but it keeps me in touch with being, you know, part of society. -Nicolas Cage

I always say to myself that if I can make a movie that makes a kid smile or gives them some hope or something to get excited about, then I'm applying myself in the best way that I can. I don't think that just goes for kids. I think that it goes for adults, as well, and for families. -Nicolas Cage

If there are two things Penn & Teller stand for, it's the truth & lying, although not necessarily in that order. -Penn Jillette

If you spend a lot of time lying to people, you think a lot about what the truth means. -Penn Jillette

It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral, self-righteous, bullying laziness. -Penn Jillette

When 9/11 hit, the second thing I said to myself was, 'This really is what religious people do.' Those people flying the plane were very good, very pious, truly faithful believers. There's no other way to paint them. Of course, they are extremists by definition, but they certainly aren't going against Islam in any real way. -Penn Jillette

Every nut who kills people has a Bible lying around. -Penn Jillette

You have two choices with Obama. You either believe that he is a man of Christ… or you think he's a liar. And I'm surprised by the number of atheist free thinkers that support Obama, and their argument is essentially, 'He's lying about being religious 'cause you have to do that to get elected.' It's a horrible reason to like somebody. -Penn Jillette

My dad took me out to see a meteor shower when I was a little kid, and it was scary for me because he woke me up in the middle of the night. My heart was beating; I didn't know what he wanted to do. He wouldn't tell me, and he put me in the car and we went off, and I saw all these people lying on blankets, looking up at the sky. -Steven Spielberg

I got 'Delhi Belly' and 'Badmaash Company' because people from the production house had seen my stand-up comic acts in a DVD that was lying in their offices. It's been a weird journey, and I think weird goes with me. -Vir Das

Music is the medium that has taken me around the world, and I would be lying if I said I could live without music. -Brandon Boyd

I don't like flying at the best of times. And as I get older, I like it less and less. I don't much like driving, either. I prefer to be driven. And, when I'm in London, I don't even like walking on the street. I can never get used to looking the right way when I cross the street. -Christopher Walken

The trick is: how do you talk about natural selection without implying the rigidity of law? We use it as almost an active participant, almost like a god. In fact, you could substitute the word 'god' for 'natural selection' in a lot of evolutionary writings and you'd think you were listening to a theologian. -Greg Graffin

When you hear the word 'cancer,' it's as if someone took the game of Life and tossed it in the air. All the pieces go flying. The pieces land on a new board. Everything has shifted. You don't know where to start. -Regina Brett

A duck tastes the same whether they're shot sitting or flying. -Jase Robertson

I'm sitting in my home office wearing a bathrobe. The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm also not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. -Linus Torvalds

We all have our convictions formed by different things, and mine are informed by my faith, they're informed by the Word of God, and I found that to be an anchor for me, a compass and a guide for me. When people start bullying one another and calling each other names for those different convictions, then I think you get into problems. -Kirk Cameron

In a marriage, in any long-term relationship, not to bother with lying. There's no time for that. If you have any sort of secret life, it will come back to haunt you. -Andy Garcia

I don't think lying has any ultimate justification. I don't think it ever leads to anything positive. The good fight to have is not to lie. That's one of the challenges in a way. -Andy Garcia

I am a completely horizontal author. I can't think unless I'm lying down, either in bed or stretched on a couch and with a cigarette and coffee handy. I've got to be puffing and sipping. -Dan Brown

I found a great many pieces of punctuation and typography lying around dormant when I came along – and I must say I had a good time using them. -Tom Wolfe

I had really bad obsessive-compulsive disorder. At its worst, I was compelled to leave my house at three o'clock in the morning and go out in the alley because I just knew that the paper-towel roll I threw in the recycling bin was uncomfortable, like it was lying the wrong way, and I would be down in the garbage. -Fiona Apple

I'm not good at hiding my feelings. I'm also not good at lying. I'm very open about everything. -Marc Jacobs

Obama, startled that components of government behave as interest groups, seems utterly unfamiliar with public choice theory. It demystifies and de-romanticizes politics by applying economic analysis – how incentives influence behavior – to government. -George Will

It's important to remember that the animals are not grieving with us. They're very accepting. They're not lying there thinking 'How could you do this to me? Why aren't you keeping me going?' Pets don't do the human things of guilt and anger and recrimination that we do. They come and go with great acceptance. -Jon Katz

I found Hollywood pretty bruising and uncreative. The executives are all in thrall to the boss, and spend their times double-guessing him or her, and trying to remember what he/she said and then applying them to the script, whether it was useful or not. They're all in fear for their jobs. -Deborah Moggach

As you get older, you have to force yourself to have new dreams. For instance, I've been flying for 37 years, but now teaching others to fly is interesting for me. Sometimes you have to find new angles on life to keep you interested, like sharing successes and inspiring and helping others. -John Travolta

Do I believe, for example, that by using magic I could fly? No. How would you get around gravity? Impossible. Do I believe that I might be able to project my consciousness into a very, very vivid simulation of flying? Yeah. Yes, I've done that. Yes, that works. -Alan Moore

Riding my motorcycle around L.A. is like my own video game. But unlike many folks at the wheel, I am occupied with getting where I'm going and keeping myself safe. Most people are applying makeup, texting, and checking out the beauty in the next car. -Hugh Laurie

When I played the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve, I got to bring Wiley, my 85-pound black lab. He's responsible for my favorite New Year's memory of all: At the end of the show, he ran onstage and then out across all the tables in the showroom, sending champagne glasses and gamblers flying. -Elayne Boosler

I never minded flying cheap. I always said to myself, 'Taking this flight saves enough money to rescue four dogs, or six cats, or will let me make a difference to the one woman saving chimps in Cameroon.' -Elayne Boosler

The scary thing about the future… there will be tiny cameras everywhere, and they'll be flying around like mosquitoes and drones. That will be bad. Drones are scary. You can't reason with a drone. -Matt Groening

A largely unregulated Internet has created knowledge and wealth, but it's also long provided a medium for predatory, abusive and bullying behavior. -Adam Ostrow

The administration is out lying through its teeth about all these people signing up and how great Obamacare is now. Meanwhile, Obama continues to break the law each and every day with executive actions – not even executive orders, executive actions – and proclamations. -Rush Limbaugh

The Republican Party, I really believe, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder from years and years of bullying and taunting. The Republican Party is Jonathan Martin. The Democrat Party and the media are Richie Incognito. -Rush Limbaugh

I can't figure Twitter out. The way Twitter is formatted, I can't tell who is saying something and who's replying to something. I don't know who the tweeter is and who's responding to the twit. -Rush Limbaugh

The problem with relying on nostalgia for commentary is that people only remember the good things. -Richie Benaud

I consider fiction a very high-class form of lying. I enjoy and admire it enormously, but I don't think I'm very good at it. -Diane Ackerman

The systematic experimental study of reproducible errors of human reasoning, and what these errors reveal about underlying mental processes, is known as the heuristics and biases program in cognitive psychology. This program has made discoveries highly relevant to assessors of global catastrophic risks. -Eliezer Yudkowsky

You cannot 'rationalize' what is not rational to begin with – as if lying were called 'truthization.' There is no way to obtain more truth for a proposition by bribery, flattery, or the most passionate argument – you can make more people believe the proposition, but you cannot make it more true. -Eliezer Yudkowsky

My sleep is very important, and I have to have at least eight hours every night in order to function properly the next day. Unfortunately, flying through several time zones makes me disorientated, and it takes several days to readjust. -Olly Murs

I would love to pretend I don't diet, but I work very hard. I stay active and eat very healthy. Anybody who says otherwise is either unhealthy or lying! I will admit that I'm addicted to sugar – licorice, Jujubees and jelly candies. And I actually love bran muffins! -Evangeline Lilly

I would miss months of school and then return with bright blond hair. Needless to say, there was bullying. I wasn't beaten up daily, but there was name-calling and jealousy. You have to bear in mind that 'Harry Potter' wasn't cool. I wasn't part of the 'Terminator' franchise. -Tom Felton

I'm building shopping centers and movie theaters in the inner cities. So that means supplying jobs and letting blacks understand that we have to build our communities back, not looking to anybody else. -Magic Johnson

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 was a child of World War Two . I saw films of pilots taking off from aircraft carriers and decided that was the only thing I wanted to do. And it had to be flying from sea carriers. Airfields were not enough. -Gene Cernan

People say writing is really hard. That's very unfair to those who are doing real jobs. People who work in the fields or fix roofs, engineers, or car mechanics. I think lying on your back working under an oily car, that's a job. -Paul Theroux

If you look at a map, you see that Hawaii is in the middle of nowhere. It's 17 hours of straight flying from London. It's very far away, and sometimes you feel as if you're on another planet. But I like that. Also, that's ideal for writing. -Paul Theroux

The one word you use in military flying is duty. It's your duty. You have no control over outcome, no control over pick-and-choose. It's duty. -Chuck Yeager

Anyone that says looks don't count is lying. Of course they do. Even babies go to the attractive face. It's the way humans work. -Joan Rivers

The worst way of flying, I think, is standby. It never works. That's why they call it standby. You end up standing there going, 'Bye!' -Jerry Seinfeld

In every conversation I've had – with housewives in Mumbai, with middle-class people, upper-class, in the slums – everyone says there is an underlying consciousness of karma.

Glee's good because it tackles the issues by embracing what's different, and telling people, 'That's what makes you special' – I think that's the underlying thing. -Mark Salling

I kept on buying records and listening to them. Finally, I was able to hear the relationship between the jazz improvisers' solos and the underlying structure that it's based on, the chord progression. That was pretty easy to do in the swing era, y'know, when jazz was, like, pop music, you know. It had made the charts and everything like that. -Harvey Pekar

My greatest pleasure is still flying private. I spend between $300,000 to $500,000, depending on my year, on flying private. -Suze Orman

I went on a book tour immediately after 9/11. I was due to leave the following Wednesday, so I just did.

I'm so lazy as far as liking to get up, go to the office in my pajamas, get dressed about noon. And I hate flying. So I have this really laid-back, good lifestyle, and it's hard to nudge me out of it. -Barbara Park

If I were really rich, I would be flying places, I think. -Tao Lin

I said, I don't want to paint things like Picasso's women and Matisse's odalisques lying on couches with pillows. I don't want to paint people. I want to paint something I have never seen before. I don't want to make what I'm looking at. I want the fragments. -Ellsworth Kelly

I always write on unlined typing paper and write the first draft in longhand, using cheap Bic pens. I try to write about four pages a day, which usually yields a first draft in six months. I don't plot ahead of time, so I'm flying by the seat of my pants for the first draft. -Tess Gerritsen

I once got my stiletto caught in my horse's tail on stage and went flying into the audience. It was a mental gig, so I think the crowd thought it was part of the show. -Alison Goldfrapp

The trouble when you're doing something illegal is that you know what you're doing. You're lying to your parents, you're lying to your kids. The only person you can't lie to is yourself. -Tommy Chong

I am a keen medievalist and like going around museums and ruins and finding out about the people and local culture. I'm not one for sitting by a pool or lying on a beach. I also like to sketch while I'm on holiday, if I have time. -Jools Holland

Just because they're going to the gym, a lot of guys wear old T-shirts that look like they've been lying in the closet for 15 years. My workout clothes have to work. -Henrik Lundqvist

I have crazy claustrophobic dreams, weird elevator dreams where the elevator closes in and all of a sudden I am lying down – oh my God, it's a casket. Just freaky stuff like that. -Dave Grohl
