I have accomplished a lot, but it didn't happen overnight for me. I was 35 when I got the show, and had been working professionally for 15 years. It would be a lot weirder if I were in my early 20s and stumbled into it. -Eric McCormack

I'm going to sleep well tonight knowing that I made the right decision. -George Ryan

It was a wrong number that started it, the telephone ringing three times in the dead of night, and the voice on the other end asking for someone he was not. -Paul Auster

Men, we don't need you to be a knight in shining armor. We just need you to be a little bit brave, just a little bit. And some of them are, and that's what he does. -Virginia Madsen

I'm not a party person or someone who likes to sit and drink in clubs all night, and never really have been. I have a good time through work. -Robin Gibb

My philosophy from day one is that I can sleep better at night if I can improve an individual's knowledge about food and wine, and do it on a daily basis. -Emeril Lagasse

Those other 10 o'clock shows that come on, all you get from them is headaches and nightmares when you go to bed! At least we give you food, know what I mean? -Emeril Lagasse

I mean, I'm obviously not one of those people who's so beautiful women take their clothes off when I walk into the room. I didn't become a star overnight. -Robbie Coltrane

Ninety percent of people's nightmares is standing in front of 1,000 people. Did you know that? And having to speak. You would have thought it would have been a madman tying you up and taking your eyes out. -Robbie Coltrane

Notwithstanding these setbacks, the dream of a beautiful American orchestra goes on, and I share Dr. King's faith that each year we move inexorably closer to a magnificent opening night. -Adam Schiff

Meaning that if you live in the moment, so to speak, we play today, and tonight we're done. -Alex Van Halen

I've heard that, but since I'm computer illiterate I don't know how it all works. But since I'm on Prodigy tonight, I'm learning a lot through my typist, Peter. -Bobby Sherman

Yes, I'm supposed to go back to New York to do Geraldo, and we're going to be doing The Tonight Show. -Bobby Sherman

She could only write with him at night and she was wasting her days just sitting around. So he thought I could write with her during the day. And that was Carole King. -Cynthia Weil

I always go with the story and character and if those are good and if the setting is something that's scary (horror films seem to always take place at night and the weather's always bad) then I might be interested. -David Naughton

I do Skid Row every night. -Sebastian Bach

Politics can be likened to driving at night over unfamiliar hills and mountains. Close attention must be paid to what the beam can reach and the next bend. -David Trimble

My brain doesn't have enough time to play around like that. To get limber enough to have a nightmare. -John Wozniak

The band would play on the night off for the local hotel bands and we'd back all the different acts. So I'd been advised by good friends of mine to come back to Hawaii. Oh, I loved Honolulu, playing at a place right on the beach at Waikiki! -Martin Denny

Offers for me to play dances, society parties, even churches, were now coming in regularly. For most dates I was paid the sum of one dollar per hour, and they always tipped me at the end of the night. -Mary Lou Williams

When it comes down to it, it's giving people a good night out in a basic way and I think my company guarantees that. There's always something new and something to excite us and surprise us, and that's why people come back, I hope. -Matthew Bourne

You know, in the beginning when your first payroll comes up and you have to borrow money to meet the payroll, you lose sleep the night before, and you say to yourself real fast, 'Well, maybe I should keep working a couple more years. It's sobering. -Bill Kurtis

Our people went out every single night trying to stop crime before it happened, trying to take people off the street that they believed were involved in crime. That made us a very aggressive, proactive police department. -Daryl Gates

We usually break our records every Monday, so we'll see what turns up tonight after midnight. Next month it'll probably be higher, which is always weird. -Drew Curtis

The name Air Supply sort of came from nowhere. I get a lot of my things in dreams and I just had a dream about it one night, and I woke up and said that's just got to be the name. That was in 1975. -Graham Russell

She and my uncle were very sociable and would have a lot of people over at night to play cards or whatever. The high spot of those evenings was when we kids got dressed up to do a skit or something to amuse the guests. I loved it. -Louise Fletcher

I lived in small town out in the desert and my friend used to steal his mom's car in the middle of the night. He'd drive over to my house, I'd sneak out and we'd go out to the desert and just burn things down. -Mark Hoppus

That's one of the problems with making music your business, it becomes a business. You're no longer just this kid who is a fan and going to see every show. I've been in a bar every night for the last 15 years. Going to see bands for me is work. -Mojo Nixon

I do readings at the public library. I just did a benefit scene night for my old acting teacher. -Mark Ruffalo

Most of my nightmares involve me forgetting my lines in a stage play. -Robert Englund

Getting through the nights is the toughest part. Being alone. Not having her there to talk to. -Stuart Appleby

I personally have never made a movie in Hollywood, because I don't want to get up in my own bed and then go to the movie set, and then come home at night to my real life. -Sydney Pollack

Well, I don't throw things. This particular night I brought one from the floor so to speak, and he ended up getting a cut over his head, and the police came, took him to another side of the hotel, and that was like September 6, 1981. -Tanya Tucker

On daytime they continue to revisit a lot of the same stuff while nighttime does move on and show development. -Ted Shackelford

People say we were an overnight success. It took us a year to be an overnight success. -James Daly

I was up until all hours of the night, listening to stories, meeting great old comedians. -Joely Fisher

I have been away a great deal in the daytime, occasionally at night. -Lizzie Andrew Borden

I know General Grant better than any other person in the country can know him. It was my duty to study him, and I did so day and night, when I saw him and when I did not see him, and now I tell you what I know, he cannot govern this country. -Edwin M. Stanton

We've got activists all across the country like the members of the Million Mom March organization, some of their leaders are here tonight. We're phone banking congressional offices and pursuing editorial boards. -Michael D. Barnes

I try to get them working. My older son is 10 and he's pretty interested. We had a dinner party the other night and he helped a lot. He helped peel asparagus; he hung out. It was great. -Todd English

New Orleans life is such a night life. The thing that comes up very often is that our day essentially doesn't start until midnight or 2 in the morning. -Robert Asprin

Some kids don't know where they'll spend the night. How can we expect them to focus on learning? -Dennis Moore

You don't go dancing in the day. You don't go golfing in the night. -Mark McKinney

It was relatively easy to write 'The Cave of Lost Souls', though, because it came to me one night in a dream. I remember waking up and having this idea for a complete story – from start to finish – in my head, so I jotted it down, then later began writing the thing. -Paul Kane

I don't know anyone who actually likes the dark or night-time. I don't care how much they say it doesn't bother them. That's why we used to huddle in caves and light fires when the sun went down. -Paul Kane

The most terrifying thing I can think of is being alone – and I mean utterly alone, like no one else in the world alone – at night. That's the nucleus of the first story in my collection and it's also where the title came from for the book. -Paul Kane

I stayed with them for about a year up there and, at night, worked over in Long Island at a club called The High Hat Club which was like a pseudo jazz / blues place. -William Bell

And then, all of a sudden, you're like, all that's great and fun, but Arthur Miller's in my dressing room. This is the third night he's been here and he sits in my dressing room for an hour after each show, and talks to me for an hour. So I'm pretty spoiled right now. -Peter Krause

Influence is a very unpleasant subject and I deal with it in a maybe irresponsible way, which is to really ignore it. It would be a nightmare if we started to really think about it; it would tie our hands, it would tie everyone else's hands. -Rem Koolhaas

I am like the Jack Nicholson of the Kings – every single game. If there was a game tonight I wouldn't be here. I used to play hockey. That was my original thing. My first thing, I wanted to play professional hockey. -Rob Zombie

Each sudden gust of light explains itself as flames, but neither they, nor even bombs redoubled on the hills tonight can quite include me in their fear. -Andrew Motion

This isn't really a convention, This is really an infomercial. And every night we'll have a different infomercial and people view it with a certain level of cynicism. -Susan Estrich

My dad had a movie theater so I was there every night. -Brion James

I remember in the early days when we played six nights a week for a month and I was doing my long drum solo every night. My hands were covered in blisters. -John Bonham

In the first State of the Union of his second term, President Bush made clear to Americans tonight that he is not going to play the role of a lame duck President. -Jim Sensenbrenner

In Georgia where children work day and night in the cotton mills they have just passed a bill to protect song birds. What about the little children from whom all song is gone? -Mary Harris Jones

Sometimes when I get home at night in Washington I feel as though I had been in a great traffic jam. -Grace Abbott

Mary and I look eerily similar but other than that, the differences are pretty much night and day. -Nikki Cox

By the time I got home at night, my eyes were so chlorinated I saw rings around every light. -Esther Williams

Last tour my bass rig was breaking down every other night. That was a pain. We would get on stage and Trey would count off the song, and I'd play the first note and nothing would be there. Those guys would just roll their eyes. -Mike Gordon

A war in the Taiwan Strait would destroy China's international relations overnight. It would destroy Chinese – Japanese relations, not to mention Chinese – American relations. -William C. Kirby

Tonight – by taking this solemn oath – I am no longer a private citizen but the Mayor of the City of Chicago. -Jane Byrne

I pledge tonight to be Mayor for all of the people of this city – for one Chicago. -Jane Byrne

I am here before you tonight to dedicate this administration to bringing a new renaissance of neighborhood life and community spirit, a renewal of confidence in the future of our city and a revival of opportunity for all Chicago. -Jane Byrne

If you see me on Friday, you'll see different material on Saturday night. -Kathy Griffin

After I'd preached a message on Sunday night, I'd print it up. -Tim LaHaye

The U.S. military has done a phenomenal job of creating these facilities almost over-night and dealing with these sworn enemies of America with more respect and dignity than they ever would have considered according our officers had they captured any. -Charles Bass

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and wonder how I do these things. I can embarrass myself so badly that I literally get a hot prickle down the back of my neck. -Daisy Donovan

The environment doesn't change that radically. You are still going to go home at night and NBC is going to be there, ABC and CBS will still be there. -Dick Wolf

Of course, there will be few people who are sympathetic but you don't become a great team overnight, no matter how much money you have at your disposal. -Frank Lampard

It even has the same phraseology as the English orders of knighthood, companions and this sort of thing. -George Woodcock

They got all the size over there, and the teams are really good, so, I think night after night you're just going to have to be ready to lace them up and be ready to play. The teams out there are really good. -Latrell Sprewell

The thing is, playing with us, whoever was the left winger had to come to play every night because that's the way it was. Charlie came in and he just fit that role – big and strong around the net. -Marcel Dionne

I enjoy playing clubs. I still enjoy the closeness of the nightclub venue. However, after a certain period of time and after playing around some of the clubs in New YorkI felt that jazz should be presented in a more prestigious atmosphere. -Sonny Rollins

Now a movie goes out to two, three thousand theaters and by Friday night at 10 o'clock they know if you are in or out. That desperate competition is, I think, horrendous. It's awful. -Mark Rydell

The night before I compete, I like to have steak. Meat is especially important for female athletes because it provides them with the nutrients they need to perform at their best. -Sasha Cohen

Most of the auditions I went on, I passed up the projects because I just wasn't interested. When I read A Knight's Tale, that was that. I knew I wanted to do this movie. -Shannyn Sossamon

I may see somebody in a club one night and go, Wow, she's the most attractive girl I've seen in a long time. Then I'll see her the next night and be like, Oh no, I don't think so. -Brian Austin Green

On the night before we were married, all of the anxiety in the world came down upon me. -John C. Hawkes

This is the best night of my life. And it's going to get better. -Carrie Underwood

Those nations of artists, finding their own individualism, and kind of standing against the world: to me that's the ultimate nightmare. I want to get lost and diffused in the world. -Robert Wyatt

I have never had a social life, don't ever want one because it's boring. I'm just not very good with people, and you meet people every night who expect you to be this rock star with these developed social skills, which I don't have. -Daniel Johns

It makes it hard to get over a certain period of your life when you are constantly revisiting it every night. -Daniel Johns

I was working at this club in downtown L.A. from four to eight at night, just Eddie Rubin, the drummer, and I. -Johnny Rivers

Everyone else trains just as hard as well and that there really is no such a thing as overnight success. -Julie Benz

But by the time I was 40, everything was winding down. It started after the war. On the plus side, there was more more products and technology. But for me the nightlife was winding down, the glamour, the fun. -Cesar Romero

I came at age in the '60s, and initially my hopes and dreams were invested in politics and the movements of the time – the anti-war movement, the civil rights movement. I worked on Bobby Kennedy's campaign for president as a teenager in California and the night he was killed. -David Talbot

I loved downers, almost any kind. Loved the colors of them. Loved them yellow… I did. I would just have a bouquet in my hands at night. -Rosemary Clooney

Bob summed it up best when he was on his knees at the end of the night saying, 'Don't trust in Guided By Voices.' You were there; was the show awful or something? I know it was sloppy, but they're not really that tight anyway, but was it embarrassing, was it sad? -Kim Deal

We didn't really want to be an overnight success as that brings with it its own problems. -Kelly Jones

Even in Los Angeles, where we lived, when we would date somebody or go out with them, if we went out with somebody else the next night, we often found that women were banging on our windows while we were bedded down with other women! -Burt Ward

You learn more discipline in the theatre than you do in movies or TV. You're on stage every night and you have to sustain your energy level tor several hours. -Blythe Danner

I'm shocked at how early everything closes here. But people start earlier. I miss the late nightlife in NYC, but then again I sing and burn so much energy in the show that it's probably good – I get to go home and sleep. -Neil Patrick Harris

One night last summer, all the killers in my head assembled on a stage in Massachusetts to sing show tunes. -Sarah Vowell

When I was in Philadelphia during the Depression in 1930 or '31, I got a very sad job as a night watchman in a garage. The cars in the garage had been abandoned by their owners, since they had lost their jobs and couldn't keep up the payments. -Tom Glazer

The next thing I wrote was in a writing class at night school. It was about a poor woman who worked at a dime store and who was all alone for Christmas in Laurel, Mississippi. -Beth Henley

Today's terrorists are pursuing a distinct route. They are increasingly attacking civilians in symbolic targets, such as those of economic importance, or venues of bustling life like public transportation or entertainment, like nightclubs. -Cliff Stearns

I enjoy Saturday night racing. -Dale Earnhardt

Another night I dreamed I heard heavenly music sounding in my ears, and a flock of sheep was gathering round it. When the music ceased, the sheep leaped for joy, and ran together, shaking their heads; and one shook his head almost off, and seemed to have nothing but ears. -Joanna Southcott

Another night, I dreamed I saw my father sweeping out the barn floor clean, and would not suffer the wheat to be brought in the barn. He appeared to me to be in anger. -Joanna Southcott

I shall omit former particulars, and begin with informing the Reader, that, in 1792, I was strangely visited, by day and night, concerning what was coming upon the whole earth. -Joanna Southcott

One night all the James Brown band was playing on stage and I look in the back and I could see Mick Jagger and Keith Richards trying to get in the club and they couldn't get in cause it was to crowded. -Tommy Chong

I'll never forget that first night with the team. Going to the ballpark on the bus was the hardest 30 minutes of my life. I had to walk down that aisle between all the players. I really didn't know too much about the Detroit Tigers at that time. -Al Kaline

Two packed houses. I guess the theater sat 2,700 people every night so it was an amazing experience. -Blair Underwood

It was a JOB; the video show was a JOB; you don't tell the Aristocrats joke at 8 o'clock at night on network tv, it would be funny though. But those guys know I like dirty stuff, I like clean stuff too. -Bob Saget

Every person who is offered a knighthood has the opportunity to say yes or no. You get a letter from the Prime Minister saying you've been recommended for a knighthood and there are two little boxes, one says yes, one says no. -Derek Jacobi

It was never physically dangerous except when I nearly fell off a horse, but it was physically arduous – especially when you were working late at night. -Derek Jacobi

We were making new ones the second year. We were in syndication the second year. So we were on Saturday nights, prime time, every morning, and then they put it on Sunday evenings too. So it was all over the place. -Gavin MacLeod

We sat down and read it for the first time and I thanked God under my breath, because they were all so good. And my leading ladies are both exceptional. I mean, everybody in the play. I could just go on all night about them. -Gavin MacLeod

I'd like to do a television show that is encouraging, useful, and clean, and I'd like to go up against Entertainment Tonight and beat it. -John Tesh

I couldn't have come up with a better metaphor for my life and my internal conflict. It amazes me how quickly we can manifest our fears; not only had I created my 'I'm never satisfied, I'll drive her away' nightmare. -Kenny Loggins

It was so strange. I knew that Josephine Baker had performed on the same stage but that night I felt it. Many of the same people who worked with Josephine Baker are still here. They know what they're doing. And that was a very comfortable feeling. -LaToya Jackson

My theory is that I decided to be a writer when I was about seven, but of course it is not as simple as that. Like most writers, I had to work at other things to earn a living and wrote mainly in the evenings, often very late at night, for many years. -Margaret Mahy

He comes to London and gets a job in a nightclub, a gay club, where he's known as Straight Dave by the bar staff – and no one believes he's as straight as he claims to be. He meets the daughter of the club manager, and he has an affair with her. -Neil Tennant

The big gay clubs like Heaven started having mixed nights in the late '80s. -Neil Tennant

Tonight, I am pleased to announce that I have secured $1 million from the Convention Host Committee to fund the beautification of Boston's neighborhoods. -Thomas Menino

I watched Someone to Watch Over Me the other night. I thought it was a really good movie. It's a great movie. -Ridley Scott

After Nashville sushi and a long debate on Bob Dylan, we went into Woodland Studios at 10 pm that night for a look around, and jammed for 5 hours solid. -Robyn Hitchcock

My training was that you fill in the canvas where it needs colour and polishing. You start with the words on the first night and keep adding bits of business. -Ron Moody

I gave up my base in popular culture when I left the Tonight Show. -Branford Marsalis

Last night, two men tried to force my shutters. I recognized them: they are two of Rodin's Italian models. He told them to kill me. I am in his way; he wants to get rid of me. -Camille Claudel

Where do these arms come from, these Saturday night specials that constitute the instrument of threats in bank robberies, or the hand grenades used by terrorists? How can their sales and their import be permitted? -Alva Myrdal

The objects that are of moderate energy, like our sun or most of the stars that we see in the night sky with the naked eye, are objects in which relatively moderate energy processes are taking place. -Claude Nicollier

That's why I had to leave Hair on Broadway, because I did it for about a year, and one night I was doing the show, and I realized, well, this is not real. I told the director. He says, man, it was a killer show tonight. -Barry McGuire

I no longer teach law. But when I did I advised my students that they should never accept a case if it meant that by doing so you couldn't sleep at night. -Christopher Darden

I worked with a group of people who argued day and night – professors, officials, the Minister of Finance – but there were decisions that I had to make. -Shimon Peres

I've chosen not to live in Hollywood, and instead I live in Brooklyn, New York. It's how I like to live. I'd rather hang out with my kids and family when I'm not working. Going to premieres is not my idea of a fun night out. -Jennifer Connelly

We always work at least a month to six weeks before we go on the road, usually for something like eight to 12 hours a night. It took six weeks to do it this time. We just play virtually everything we know. -Charlie Watts

I hate leaving home. I love what I do, but I'd love to go home every night. -Charlie Watts

I'm playing 10 feet from Mike Campbell every night. I look across the stage, there's Howie. Tom's in the middle and we're playing all this stuff I love. It's great. -Benmont Tench

Fahrenheit 9/11 took public domain information that should have been on the news every night and put it in a film that a lot of people went to see. But still Bush has never had to answer those charges. -John Sayles

The two hours onstage is great. But I can only play a show and then take a night off. I have to sing for two hours, and then I've gotta rest it for a night. So it's the other 46 hours that are just boring as heck. -Bob Seger

Geraldo has been in Lebanon. He has done some excellent reporting out of there, and of course, we now know by virtue of the president's speech on Tuesday night that the terrorist organizations that operate in that area are now on the list. -Brit Hume

There's a lot of people out there who have seen us once somewhere in a pub or heard our songs late night on radio. We'd done four years of it before we'd even released a single. It's put us in good stead. -Dan Hawkins

I no longer have the terrible nightmares that I used to have. Mao had just died in 1976, and China began to open up. For the first time scholarships to go to the West to study were awarded on academic merit. -Jung Chang

I try something new every night. It's an hour show; if it works I maybe try it a few more times and then move that off and try something new. It's a great workshop for me. -Kate Clinton

Most of those mocking us and our works night after night have not reached the point of suggesting we are going to use those weapons. They are pretty useless right now. -Richard Reeves

People say you should read your criticism because it will make you a better person but it doesn't. It just makes you a sad bitter old showbiz nightmare. -Jo Brand

It was a presidential election year, and as a member of a consortium of Ivy League radio stations, we participated in 'network' coverage of election night. -Andrea Mitchell

I've done that I was touring a couple of years ago with R. Kelly and the Lillith Fair, I would do the late night underground gigs as well because it's always around those times that there was a hot song, either on the radio or in the clubs, it would just be simultaneous. -Deborah Cox

Where every moment is about truth and I think it's a great challenge every night. That's what really drove me to wanting to do theatre, and it's great. -Deborah Cox

I have a four year old and I'm telling you we did Nickelodeon last night and he embarrassed me. It was like one of those moments when I couldn't believe my kid is acting like this. I just had to just like walk away from him because he was really pushing my buttons. -Nia Long

I mean a song that's specifically for the girls. It's saying you know we talk about them night and day, we're constantly pondering on men and what they've done good and what they've done bad and all these things in our lives. -Willa Ford

I have gone on the air and announced my telephone number at the Washington Post. I go into the night, talking to people, looking for things. The great dreaded thing every reporter lives with is what you don't know. The source you didn't go to. The phone call you didn't return. -Bob Woodward

When I got a call from Los Angeles to do the Tonight Show, I considered it more of an inconvenience than an opportunity. -Lorna Luft

And on 25 January of each year and for many days before it and after it there is not an hour in the day or night when a Burns Supper is not taking place somewhere on this earth. -Len G. Murray

I was inspired by a lot of people when I was young. Every band that came through town, to the theater, or the dance hall. I was at every dance, every night club, listened to every band that came through, because in those days we didn't have MTV, we didn't have television. -Quincy Jones

We survived a Slayer crowd every night for about 50 days and thought we could do about anything after that. -Layne Staley

In daytime, they're doing 50-60 pages a day, whereas nighttime, you do seven or eight. -Corbin Bernsen

It takes 20 years to make an overnight success. -Eddie Cantor

You have to face the fact that I have no reputation as a composer; I have my reputation as a songwriter and a performer-and that opportunity came this summer, when I was invited to perform at the Lincoln Centre festival in New York… three nights. -Elvis Costello

It will be about which candidate, which of the two candidates remaining, is best suited to make a positive difference in the lives of North Carolina families, and I submit to each of you tonight that I am that candidate and Elizabeth Dole is not. -Erskine Bowles

Well, I had started a program which is even longer running than this one in 1967 which was a jazz program called The Best of Jazz and that still goes out on Monday nights. That's been going for 33 years or something. -Humphrey Lyttelton

It was so much fun to do, play the blues and then play a Monkees' set on the same night. -Peter Tork

The four of us couldn't have made a record with the time left over when we were shooting the show. We were on stage from 7.30 in the morning 'til 7 at night. Later on, when there was a break from filming, and we were sick of doing it the old way. -Peter Tork

I saw Ronnie Hawkins play near my hometown, Port Dover, Ontario, and I saw him play there on New Year's Eve and the following spring I booked myself to be his opening act on maybe five shows, and he hired me after the first night. -Rick Danko

When I used to play nightclubs, you had to play Top 40 or favorite oldies that maybe people could relate to. -Rick Danko

You have to remember the band played from 1960 to 1965, every night. You get into a rut playing nightclubs every night, and you didn't want to run it into the ground. -Rick Danko

You have to know who you are, if you don't you have nightmares. -Stephen Rea

On the night of the 1st of September we observed for the first time signs of the natives being in the neighbourhood. Fires were seen on the low land near Cape Frederick Henry, and at daylight we saw the natives with our glasses. -William Bligh

They make Spy Kids, they make Scream, they make A Scary Movie. This doesn't do that, so it could be a very bad marriage. I'm trying to keep this potential nightmare quiet because we're just finishing editing. -Terry Gilliam

Literally overnight, I became an animator… and one that was well-known. -Terry Gilliam

I can't miss a night's work and let my public down. -Patsy Cline

The night I announced I was getting married, Daddy paced for hours on the porch. -Loretta Lynn

Night after night I could feel the chills go up and down my spine, they played so well. -Lawrence Welk

I have a hotline to the tabloids. When I get up in the morning, I call the Star, and the last thing at night, I call them. I want them to have the inside track. -Kirstie Alley

I worked half my life to be an overnight success, and still it took me by surprise. -Jessica Savitch

We didn't let a night go by that we didn't play. -Jay McShann

Johnny Guitar… just one of my favorite singers of all time. I met him when we were both on the road with Johnny Otis in the '50s when I was a teenager. We traveled the country in a car together. I would hear him sing every night. -Etta James

I couldn't sleep one night and I was sitting in my office and I realized that I was an independent filmmaker. -Darren Aronofsky

Any fool knows that bravado is always a cover-up for insecurity. That's the truth. And on that note, I'll say goodnight. God love you. -Bobby Darin

That night at Carnegie Hall was a great experience. When the thing was first put up to me I was a little dubious, not knowing just what would be expected of us. -Benny Goodman

I'm not playing for other musicians. We're trying to reach the guy who works all day and wants to spend a buck at night. We'll keep him happy. -Nat King Cole

I play a percussion instrument, not a musical saw; it needs no amplification. Where it's needed, they put a microphone in front of the bass drum. But, I don't think it's necessary to play that way every night. -Buddy Rich

Pinocchio, spurred on by the hope of finding his father and of being in time to save him, swam all night long. -Carlo Collodi

A long apprenticeship is the most logical way to success. The only alternative is overnight stardom, but I can't give you a formula for that. -Chet Atkins

The next night I got on an airplane, and flew to New York and looked into acting schools. Four or five acting schools. One of which was the Neighborhood Playhouse, which I started at six months there after. -Dabney Coleman

When we have spiritual reading at meals, when we have the rosary at night, when we have study groups, forums, when we go out to distribute literature at meetings, or sell it on the street corners, Christ is there with us. -Dorothy Day

The school-boy doesn't force himself to learn his vocabularies and rules altogether at night, but knows that be must impress them again in the morning. -Hermann Ebbinghaus

The Bishop and Knight, in contradistinction to the Queen and Rook, are called Minor Pieces. -Howard Staunton

But my most favourite pursuit, after my daily exertions at the Foundry, was Astronomy. There were frequently clear nights when the glorious objects in the Heavens were seen in most attractive beauty and brilliancy. -James Nasmyth

I made observations for three hours last night, and am almost ill today from fatigue; still I have worked all day, trying to reduce the places, and mean to work hard again tonight. -Maria Mitchell

I didn't have any real art training, but when I was about twelve nad thirteen, another boy and I went to a sign painter's house every Friday night and took lessons. -Rube Goldberg

But I made no efforts to organize my supporters to hold on to the apparatus. Consequently I was soon expelled and my followers, who did not change coats overnight, quietly left or were expelled from the party. -Earl Browder

It's very much like opera singers. They do the same thing. The first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, the thing they think about is their voice and how to take care of it. -Johnny Mathis

Happiness is the sublime moment when you get out of your corsets at night. -Joyce Grenfell

A clear cold morning with high wind: we caught in a trap a large gray wolf, and last night obtained in the same way a fox who had for some time infested the neighbourhood of the fort. -Meriwether Lewis

Great numbers of the Indians pass our camp on their hunting excursions: the day was clear and pleasant, but last night was very cold and there was a white frost. -Meriwether Lewis

The rain, which had continued yesterday and last night, ceased this morning. We then proceeded, and after passing two small islands about ten miles further, stopped for the night at Piper's landing, opposite another island. -Meriwether Lewis

We had high and boisterous winds last night and this morning: the Indians continue to purchase repairs with grain of different kinds. -Meriwether Lewis

And much more am I sorrier for my good knights' loss than for the loss of my fair queen; for queens I might have enough, but such a fellowship of good knights shall never be together in no company. -Thomas Malory

For as well as I have loved thee heretofore, mine heart will not serve now to see thee; for through thee and me is the flower of kings and knights destroyed. -Thomas Malory

Through this same man and me hath all this war been wrought, and the death of the most noblest knights of the world; for through our love that we have loved together is my most noble lord slain. -Thomas Malory

We don't really need reviewers, just first-night reporters who will tell us faithfully whether or not the audience liked the show. -Carroll O'Connor

That smell of freshly cut grass makes me think of Friday night football in high school. The smell of popcorn and cigar smoke reminds me of the stadium. The cutting of the grass reminds me of the August practice. -Garth Brooks

The joke I wanted to put into one of the promos for this new season, was to have a guy come up to me and say, Hey! Tony! I love your show, I've watched you every night since you started! And then I'd say, Ah! You're the one! -Tony Danza

I often write either really early in the morning, or really late at night. -Tracy Chapman

I went to dance classes from 9 in the morning until 1, then to school from 3 to 10 at night, always under the threat that if I failed a single course I could forget about dancing. -Victoria Abril

Every single night I'm nervous. You never know how the audience is going to react. -Vivien Leigh

I used to lie between cool, clean sheets at night after I'd had a bath, after I had washed my hair and scrubbed my knuckles and finger-nails and teeth. Then I could lie quite still in the dark with my face to the window with the trees in it, and talk to God. -Frances Farmer

He appeared every night, like myself, at about nine o'clock, in the office of Mr. Tyler, to learn the news brought in the night Associated Press report. He knew me from the Bull Run campaign as a correspondent of the press. -Henry Villard

I couldn't get that same feeling during the day, with my hands in dirty dish water and the hard sun showing up the dirtiness on the roof tops. And after a time, even at night, the feeling of God didn't last. -Frances Farmer

I would love to be like a Brian McKnight. Shoot, I'd love to be Brian McKnight. -Justin Guarini

Friday night is our date night. We really carve out time for each other. -Karen Kain

If you want a transcript of tonight's program, get a pen and write down everything I said. -Kevin Nealon

Any idealist who tries to join the Peace Corps must realize he is not going to change the world overnight. -Sargent Shriver

The sword was a very elegant weapon in the days of the samurai. You had honor and chivalry much like the knights, and yet it was a gruesome and horrific weapon. -Dustin Diamond

Every one should find some suitable time, day or night, to sink into his depths, each according to his own fashion. Not every one is able to engage in contemplative prayer. -Johannes Tauler

That is why I come forward tonight without any political label, without any bias, but just simply as an Englishman to say to you: a crime is being committed against civilization. -John Amery

Ella can work nightclubs that Duke might not be able to work, because of having the big band. Where they go now is strictly a matter of their own names and talents. -Norman Granz

24 isn't like other shows, where you set the look once and you're done. The show started at midnight, then moved to a pre-dawn look, and now we're at dawn and we're warming up the day. -Stephen Hopkins

I had a birthday one night on a farm we were shooting on. I walked into the tent, and there were 150 people waiting for me, all wearing masks of my face. -Stephen Hopkins

Listeners will wonder what an Englishman is doing on the German radio tonight. You can imagine that before taking this step I hoped that someone better qualified than me would come forward. -John Amery

By reading Huckleberry Finn I felt I was able to justify my act of going into the mountain forest at night and sleeping among the trees with a sense of security which I could never find indoors. -Kenzaburo Oe

Bosnia is under my skin. It's the place you cannot leave behind. I was obsessed by the nightmare of it all; there was this sense of guilt, and an anger that has become something much deeper over these last years. -Paddy Ashdown

Marching thus at night, a battalion is doubly impressive. The silent monster is full of restrained power; resolute in its onward sweep, impervious to danger, it looks a menacing engine of destruction, steady to its goal, and certain of its mission. -Patrick MacGill

Every night when I go to bed, I hope that I may never wake again, and every morning renews my grief. -Franz Schubert

Do we care about these people that are HIV-positive whose lives have been ruined? Those are the people I'm the most concerned about. Every night I think about this. -Kary Mullis

We lived within two hundred yards of the sea, and its voice was in our ears night and day. -Edward Carpenter

If I didn't have a recruiting engagement, I was going to be here. I did everything possible to change the recruiting thing. I'm a very small part of this night, but I did want to be a part of it. -Rick Pitino

Fortunately, many people also enjoy a stand-alone as a sample of something new, like trying the special at a favourite restaurant one night instead of going for the usual. -Sarah Zettel

My joking answer to this question is that I leave a bowl of milk out on the back porch every night for the Idea Fairy. In the morning, the milk is gone and there's a brand-new shiny idea by the bowl. -Sarah Zettel

The fate of the singers who, like my songs, went up in flame was also the fate of the books which I later wrote. All of them went up in flame to Heaven in a fire which broke out one night at my home in Bad Homburg as I lay ill in a hospital. -Shmuel Yosef Agnon

I've always wanted to get an education, and tonight's as good a time as any. -Burt Lancaster

When I get into bed at night, I hope I don't get into it alone! -Calvin Klein

I wouldn't totally rule out doing Letterman or the Tonight Show if I had a set that I just happened to write that I thought was funny but was still appropriate for network censors. But I'm not going to go out of my way. -Joe Rogan

The audience changes every night. You're the same person. You have to speak your mind and do the stuff that you think is funny and makes you laugh. -Joe Rogan

I'm glad I am a woman who once danced naked in the Mediterranean Sea at midnight. -Mercedes McCambridge

All those years we'd spent learning these chops, and all those gigs in Germany where you'd play all night, and along comes punk. It has nothing to do with that. A lot of people went out of business. -Nick Lowe

People think we don't give a toss about the game, but when I walked out of Windsor Park that night I felt lower than a snake's belly. The reality is still there. -Rio Ferdinand

People think I must have been turning cartwheels on the night I sealed the movie deal – which was only two days after sealing the book deal – but I was really quite terrified. -Laura Hillenbrand

When I got old enough to go to night clubs to hear that music at the age of 15. -Johnny Winter

You know, when we were kids, we had to go to a theater to see a movie. And then television came in and you had to wait until midnight to see the one you wanted to see. Now, all you've got to do is go to a store and buy it and you can watch it whenever you want! -John Zorn

The image is where you have dinner at night, who you're seeing. It's what car you drive and how you dress. People in the industry sell that, and it creates a dream. There's nothing else. -Elle Macpherson

No one's raising children any more. To love a child, you've got to work for it. You have to change its diapers and feed it at night! -Lauren Hutton

Playing live, you can't survive, certainly not in England. We used to work daytime jobs and play gigs at night. It was very exhausting. -Gavin Rossdale

There's nothing like spending an evening with an audience every night. -John Lithgow

Happy Days, which we did for 11 years, we did with three cameras in front of a live audience. Very special. We had a party every Friday night. The boys, Ron, Henry, they grew up on that show. -Marion Ross

I usually hang around the room listening to a bit of last night's show. If there's one available, I go to the steam room every day for my voice. I spend half an hour there and then I eat, because I can't eat later than four o'clock. Then I go for a soundcheck. That's my day. -Phil Collins

Maybe it's just my own chronic morbidity and melancholia, but I really do think about it a great deal and quite often in the small hours of the night when, it is said, the greatest numbers of people die. -Brian Sibley

I wanted to do an episode about Chuck having a gambling problem. I wanted to portray my addiction on the show. But I think it's a little edgy for Saturday night. -Fisher Stevens

And TV is not the easiest place to be dangerous or on the edge. Especially on a Saturday night. -Fisher Stevens

Then I got a gig with an older friend who had the equipment and he played in this bar. They would bring me in the bar through the backdoor and I would DJ in the back room most of the night. Then they'd take me out the backdoor, so I was never really in the bar. -Jam Master Jay

Going to your set with the headphones on in the middle of the night so that your parents don't know what you're doing when you're supposed to be asleep is great. I was rocking the bedroom. That was so much more fun when I got the 1200s. -Jam Master Jay

The first year we actually did a lot of night shooting and the writers weren't even allowed on location. -James MacArthur

I still sweat bullets if I go on The Tonight Show, but I tell myself, You can either have fun tonight or you can be shy and miserable. You ask my friends or anyone I work with now – nobody would say I was shy. -Lara Flynn Boyle

I'm afraid of the dark, so I have a lot of night-lights. -Lara Flynn Boyle

I've talked to some drummers who seem to have a very hard time staying in shape on the road, including some drummers touring with high-profile acts that don't have to live on fast food every night. -Matt Cameron

The fact that Eddie Vedder likes to play 3 hour plus shows a night, I have to be ready for that. -Matt Cameron

I don't expect an overnight change of all desktops to what the US Military used to call B3 level security. And even that would not stop users from shooting themselves into the foot. -Wietse Venema

Every night is different, you never know what it's going to be like. I remember every night. I don't like to compare them. -Lenny Kravitz

When you have a play, you have to be on every night. -Sanaa Lathan

Reality is never as bad as a nightmare, as the mental tortures we inflict on ourselves. -Sammy Davis, Jr.

I looked it at like this way. To get folks to like you, as a screen player I mean, I figured you had to sort of be their ideal. I don't mean a handsome knight riding a white horse, but a fella who answered the description of a right guy. -Gary Cooper

I'm most in my element on tour, with a gig that day, like today. I'm on the road where I am supposed to be. I will be where I'm supposed to be at nighttime, on stage, in front of people, doing my thing. -Henry Rollins

I'm kind of an insomniac and watch TV late at night. -Monica Keena

We had a big party that night and everybody went around gathering results from various precincts and each person would get four or five precincts and then come to the house. There were no cell phones or anything to get results phoned in early. -Daniel J. Evans

We need to fix this. It hasn't been done yet because there's still a reluctance to admit that there was even a problem – anywhere above seven rogue soldiers who got out of control on the night shift. -Janis Karpinski

Well, as you know, there are 24 hours in every day. And if that's not enough, you've always got the nights! -Ronald Graham

I think it'd be a real nightmare to put a record out and sell 20 million copies and then that's it. -Lenny Kravitz

On one occasion I shared a bed with about seven other people, but we were all having a party overnight. -Marion Zimmer Bradley

I was 14 when I started modeling. At the end of that first day my mum said, If you want to do this, you're on your own because I'm not traipsing around London ever again like that. It's a nightmare. -Kate Moss

I went out every single night so I was never alone with my stepfather. At 12, I stopped going on holiday with them. The times I was alone with him I always made sure I was all covered up. -Christine Keeler

As we look forward to freedom, the shining city on the hill and the best days of America lying ahead, it is the men and women in uniform who protect, defend and make us proud to whom we should look and give thanks every night. -Robin Hayes

I believe there should be no arbitrary date set for withdrawal and yet no permanent, unending deployment. No cut and run, yet measured progress in helping a people who want to be free without an illusion of overnight success. -Rick Renzi

I can't say I'm happy to be talking about John Ritter and his passing. In my 21 years of Entertainment Tonight, this really was one of the most shocking and sad things to have happened. -Mary Hart

I mean, I guess I realized subconsciously that this is what I should be doing before I realized it, consciously. Verbally, I don't think I had committed to it, even though I was driving everywhere, every night, just trying to get on stage. -Todd Barry

It is difficult to go on the next night after you receive a sandbagging. -Richard O'Brien

People magazine had been around for a short period of time, but nobody had thought about putting entertainment news on a nightly basis on television. -Mary Hart

Recruiting Station was a story that came as the result of many anxious awakenings during many nights. -A. E. van Vogt

Some of the priests from the Seminary were in the nunnery every day and night, and often several at a time. -Maria Monk

We are on Sunday night because that is where they put us 30-odd years ago. I think we became a habit. -Morley Safer

Well, no. I was getting into trouble messing around with it for roles. So one night I went home, cut it down with a pair of scissors and then got in the bath and shaved it all off. I've never looked back. -Richard O'Brien

Our days and nights have sorrows woven with delights. -Francois de Malherbe

It was night and I could see a large and calm lake, reflecting the moon. Black mountains rose around it. I arrived from between two of these mountains, I looked at the lake and the moon, and that was it, nothing else happened. -Georges Simenon

I sat down one night and wrote the line rock, rock, rock everybody. -Bill Haley

Most of my images have been done in-studio, under very controlled lighting conditions. There have been a few that have been shot in nature, but even then they were shot almost exclusively at night, and again, under controlled lighting conditions. -Leonard Nimoy

You know, Stephen says, in the movies no one ever goes to the bathroom. They shave, they brush their teeth. He goes right at this sort of funny taboo we have about the bathroom, and he turned it into this nightmare, you know, your worst fear of what's in there. -Lawrence Kasdan

But, you know, they don't enjoy the dinner hour together. It's just not as much of a ritual at night and it's interesting. I think the ritual is taking place perhaps more in the morning. -Katie Couric

The Vision Festival was packed every night, always has been for the four years it's been happening. -Joseph Jarman

Tonight, I concurred with President Bush when he stated that the decisions on future involvement of U.S. troops in Iraq should be left to the Pentagon and not politicians in Washington. -Howard Coble

So a lot of me is still a little kid, and I think that kind of helps alter my sense of reality – it makes me able to just become Belle every single night. -Christy Romano

I get her to school, we do homework at night, and at this age, their social calendars are really quite hectic. She's not driving yet, so I end up chauffeuring her around. -Charlene Tilton

I don't look like a desert person because I stay indoors most of the day and fool around at night. That's what the desert animals do – they don't have a tan either. -Captain Beefheart

Then when Gladys Knight came in to do my songs that was the straw that broke the camel's back. -Brenda Holloway

Physically I'm tired at the end of the day and quite glad to be reading in bed by midnight. -Bob Geldof

And on election night I'd go down to city hall in El Paso, Texas and cover the election. In those days, of course, we didn't have exit polls. You didn't know who had won the election until they actually counted the votes. I thought that was exciting too. -Sam Donaldson

My honeymoon night was spent on the floor in the bathroom with my mother. -Ronnie Spector

I used to cry myself to sleep every night. I missed singing so much. And performing. Man, I missed it so much. -Ronnie Spector

They have what you call a black night where they have black people come in for just one night only to watch comedy, and you get all your local drug dealers, thugs, prostitutes, all of them come in, sit down, and listen to you tell jokes. They the hardest people to make laugh. -Mike Epps

I'm gonna perform on one of the nights. Good clean fun; we're not going to jail. For the record. -Luther Campbell

I look at my clarinet sometimes and I think, I wonder what's going to come out of there tonight? You never know. -Acker Bilk

Mississippi Mermaid was a very special experience because we only had the dialogues for the scenes we were shooting the night before. -Catherine Deneuve

That profound night freedom was agreeable and exciting. -Carmen Laforet

I wasn't angry the night I shot him. -Mark David Chapman

It was real Cheyenne. I would get the translations the night before, but it was very difficult because it was not like any other language you would be familiar with. -Joe Lando

In fact I have nightmares about having children. I want to carry a baby and feel the life within me and in my dream, I do. But every time after it's born, there's this incredible fear, this pounding pulse of fear. It's a real bad nightmare. -Sharon Gless

But Angela had at least 30% more viewers on the same night at the same time. I mean, she wiped everybody out. But the sponsors don't care when she had the most people. They only care about if there was only a handful of young viewers on the other one. -Sharon Gless

When Kate was born, she was born into a world of joy and happiness and confidence. The difference between the children is night and day. She's happy, she's thriving, she's full of self-confidence. I tell her she's beautiful every day before I send her off to school. -Lynn Johnston

Well, I get my subject on Wednesday night; I think it out carefully on Thursday, and make my rough sketch; on Friday morning I begin, and stick to it all day, with my nose well down on the block. -John Tenniel

Making sleep happen is a must – anytime, anywhere, from a plane to a train to an automobile. Ideally, I like to get eight to ten hours a night, though I'll take it broken up in two segments if I have to. -Chantal Kreviazuk

There was some conflict there over Saturday nights because we were all really broke in those days- all the money you had in the world was in your pockets. Nowadays when you're say you're broke, it's not the same thing. -Arto Lindsay

With every gig we have to prove ourselves better than the night before. -Ronnie Wood

Mick has expressed an interest in coming to the gallery tonight because he's seen me behaving myself lately. He is being much more supportive, which is nice. -Ronnie Wood

I listened to it last night for the first time since we started this project. I went out to my car and put it in and went to an empty parking lot and just listened and read the little pamphlet that came with it. After two or three songs I burst into tears. -Randy Bachman

Every night we all felt grateful to be there, stunned at the amount of people that are there, and stunned at their reactions. They go crazy; they know every lyric from eight years of age to eighty. It's unbelievable. -Randy Bachman

But for the first time in many years, I get to sleep in my own bed every night. I haven't done that, literally, in years. It seems like such a small thing, but it is so nice. -Linda Vester

A lot of late nights in the gym, a lot of early mornings, especially when your friends are going out, you're going to the gym, those are the sacrifices that you have to make if you want to be an NBA basketball player. -Jason Kidd

I think everybody has to be better, right from me out. Everybody has to step up their games for us to be successful here. I've been lucky to be on some good teams over the years and that's what it takes, everybody contributing night after night. -Ed Belfour

I go through about two Fender mediums a night because I don't pick straight down; it's sort of sideways, and it shaves them off. -Robin Trower

At night, when the sky is full of stars and the sea is still you get the wonderful sensation that you are floating in space. -Natalie Wood

I love sketch comedy. My real goal is to do something with Albert Brooks. That would be my fantasy. I stay up night and day thinking up stuff he might find funny. -Illeana Douglas

They were conspiring to desert us in the night and steal some of our horses… we engaged a spy. -Zebulon Pike

Such night in England ne'er had been, nor ne'er again shall be. -Thomas Babington Macaulay

I play against a front and a back every night, Ming does not have to do that, Duncan does not have to do that, Garnett doesn't do that. I am the only one that has to do that. -Shaquille O'Neal

From 7 in the morning to 11 at night, I was reading. I don't think one can find any other time in one's life to be left alone so much to read in peace like that. -Mohsen Makhmalbaf

There used to be a lot of acts, which was good, because people don't want to see the same act every night. But, you don't want too many acts, you don't want to over-saturate it. -Mickey Gilley

So I'm trying to spread myself to the point to where I can do the night shows and not have to worry about the matinees, and do one or two matinees down through the year. -Mickey Gilley

I hate crowds of people pretending to be happy on one night of the year, where they get drunk and obnoxious by the end of the night. -Kenny Hickey

Like you and your woman ain't gettin' along and you're in love. You can't sleep at nights. Your mind is on her – on whatever. You know, that's the blues. You can't hug that money at night. You can't kiss it. -John Lee Hooker

I remember back in Detroit, I used to go to the Apex Bar every night after I got off work. The bartender there used to call me Boom Boom. I don't know why, but he did. -John Lee Hooker

I can't take days off and play like I did last night. Maybe some people can, but I can't. -Jimmy Chamberlin

I consider myself gay because at the end of the night, that's who I want to cuddle with. But when I go out, I go to straight clubs. -Jai Rodriguez

You know, radio was a really easy way to do the shows. You'd come in, do a read-through, there'd be a few rehearsals, then you'd come the night of the show and do it in front of the audience and then go home. -Harry Shearer

When it moved to Friday night it disappeared, when they find another show that can do what The Simpsons does, they will be delighted to do cancel The Simpsons. -Harry Shearer

Yeah, but on the U.S Tour we threw a new song into the set almost every night. Ofcourse, you can't do too many new songs every night as they've never heard it. -Glenn Tipton

We love not just Judas Priest music, but we love heavy metal and we love to get out on that stage every night and perform. It's a joy to be able to do it. -Glenn Tipton

I was hanging out with Jonathan Richman last night. -Evan Dando

My kids are more precious to me than anything. I'm with them all day, and I write all night. -Danielle Steel

I did it at night because I loved it. I never did it to make money, as a job. I just did it because I had to. -Danielle Steel

We sat around one night and thought that people are going to look back and say, I can't imagine there was a lot of excitement about HER going up! -Christa McAuliffe

I always do an all-night horror marathon on Saturdays where we start at seven and go until five in the morning. -Quentin Tarantino

I used to go home at night and just shake, because I had no idea that's what acting was gonna be. -Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio

You can't really describe how difficult it is to deal with. It is any athlete's worst nightmare to be accused of cheating by taking drugs. It really is very difficult to put into words how it makes you feel. -Greg Rusedski

The state of my poor boy's health prevents me from leaving home for a night. -Edward Irving

I have never had problems sleeping the night before a race. -Bobby Rahal

We give you this story. It is for the audience to be moved and gut wrenched, not us. It isn't as if we don't go through those real feeling and it isn't as if I don't cry three or four times a night. I usually do. -Linda Lavin

I don't lose sleep over what I have done or have nightmares about it. -Dennis Nilsen
