There are people who have tremendously important things to say, but they say it so poorly that nobody would ever want to read it. -Theodore Sturgeon

What honour have we got left, when nobody is listening to us? -Abu Bakar Bashir

I have been all over the world. I have met some wonderful people, lots of them very simple, whom nobody will ever hear about, but who have been fabulous to me. -Maureen Forrester

I burned out on AIDS and did no AIDS work for a couple of years. I was so angry that people were still getting this disease that nobody can give you – you have to go out and get it! -Harvey Fierstein

The little song and dance number at the end – that's me, my voice, howling out. It was a new experience for me. I've never sung before and I've certainly never sung on screen. I think I sung on stage when I was 13 and for some reason nobody's asked me to try it again since. -Hugh Dancy

So to answer your question, I'm not entirely sure how I ended up where I am today, in the sense that nobody in my family is an actor. It just happened by mistake. -Hugh Dancy

Poor people cannot rely on the government to come to help you in times of need. You have to get your education. Then nobody can control your destiny. -Charles Barkley

Poetry seems to have been eliminated as a literary genre, and installed instead, as a kind of spiritual aerobic exercise – nobody need read it, but anybody can do it. -Marilyn Hacker

I write the story that nobody reads. Someday, I'm going to write it in German to see if anyone notices. -Rick Reilly

For nobody is curious, who isn't malevolent. -Plautus

But nobody predicted anything of this magnitude in terms of resistance. And in part, the magnitude of the resistance was spurred by our failures in reconstruction. -Wayne White

I try to be bad, but nobody will let me. -Nick Carter

That which is everybody's business is nobody's business. -Izaak Walton

Maybe you don't like your job, maybe you didn't get enough sleep, well nobody likes their job, nobody got enough sleep. Maybe you just had the worst day of your life, but you know, there's no escape, there's no excuse, so just suck up and be nice. -Ani DiFranco

Take motherhood: nobody ever thought of putting it on a moral pedestal until some brash feminists pointed out, about a century ago, that the pay is lousy and the career ladder nonexistent. -Barbara Ehrenreich

Michael Scofield is someone everyone can relate to, but nobody would want to be in his shoes. -Wentworth Miller

When you're playing an icon like Wolverine, it's sometimes better to be someone that nobody knows because they don't know what to expect. I don't mind a little bit of anonymity; it helps on the subway. -Hugh Jackman

The greatest thing is nobody cares that I'm fifty years old. They only care what I sound like. -Rob Paulsen

I've been very lucky in the characters I've chosen. Up until last year I was a nobody. I did jobs I booked because I needed to put food in my mouth. -Kristen Bell

I don't like Los Angeles. The people are awful and terribly shallow, and everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to play the game. I'm from New York. I will kill to get what I need. -Lady Gaga

Sure, 'Twilight' is really huge right now and everybody's freaking out over it, but it will go away soon and I will be back to doing what I'm used to doing: weird little movies that nobody sees. -Kristen Stewart

I was born in ancient times, at the end of the world, in a patriarchal Catholic and conservative family. No wonder that by age five I was a raging feminist – although the term had not reached Chile yet, so nobody knew what the heck was wrong with me. -Isabel Allende

I presume that nobody will deny the positive aspects of the North American cultural world. These are well known to all. But these aspects do not make one forget the disastrous effects of the industrial and commercial process of 'cultural lamination' that the USA is perpetrating on the planet. -Jose Saramago

In Iran I think nobody loses their job because of making a statement that reflects their opinion. From this point of view, conditions in Iran are far better than in many other places in the world. -Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

There's nobody in the world like me. I think every decade has an iconic blonde, like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana and, right now, I'm that icon. -Paris Hilton

I think if you look at Sam Raimi and Jim Cameron, those guys know things about filmmaking that almost nobody knows anymore. They are students of film from when they handmade films themselves, you know cut films with their own hands and razor blades and tape. -Dileep Rao

Nobody taught Picasso how to paint – he learned for himself. And nobody can teach you to be a producer. You can learn the mechanics, but you can't learn what's right about a script or a director or an actor. That comes from instinct and intuition. It comes from inside you. -Dino De Laurentiis

Walt Disney had always tried to get more dimension in his animation and when I saw these tapes, I thought, This is it! This is what Walt was waiting for! But when I looked around, nobody at the studio at the time was even halfway interested in it. -John Lasseter

When you have nobody you can make a cup of tea for, when nobody needs you, that's when I think life is over. -Audrey Hepburn

In the history of Wikileaks, nobody has claimed that the material being put out is not authentic. -Julian Assange

I've carried a gun for 10 years. I've carried them in the locker room, and nobody really knows about it. I know how to handle myself, and I stow it away where nobody really knows about it. -Luke Scott

When we were doing 'Freaks and Geeks', I didn't quite understand how movies and TV worked, and I would improvise even if the camera wasn't on me. I thought I was helping the other actors by keeping them on their toes, but nobody appreciated it when I would trip them up. So I was improvising a little bit back then, but not in a productive way. -James Franco

The instrument that I never learned how to play was my fans. You know, they are the part of the story that nobody teaches you. I just want to do the right thing; I want to be a voice with them, among them. -Lady Gaga

Diana was one of the quickest wits I knew; nobody made me laugh like her. -Sarah Ferguson

The trick of this thing and the beauty of this thing is that it's a cowboy movie first and then stuff happens. Even after stuff happens it doesn't change – it hasn't suddenly changed into another kind of movie. It's still a cowboy movie. And that's what's incredible about it because nobody has done that before, that's new territory. -Harrison Ford

And I'm not apolitical – I'm very specific in my politics. But a lot of the time it's nobody's business unless you're over at my house having dinner. -Tom Hanks

If there is an authoritarian structure at St. Hill it has been brought into being by the government itself. St. Hill is trying to correct itself. It doesn't know what it's trying to correct because nobody has told it what to correct. -L. Ron Hubbard

If you have a rigidly controlled economy, cut off from the rest of the world by infinite protection, nobody has any incentive to increase productivity and to bring new ideas. -Manmohan Singh

For two years nobody talked about anything other than the name arrangement. There was no fund-raising and no progress being made on construction and design. -Michael Arad

When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. -Steve Jobs

I hear all this, you know, 'Well, this is class warfare, this is whatever.' No. There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own – nobody. -Elizabeth Warren

I remember a time when all my fans were crying and sad and going through hell. Now, we're trying to uplift each other and accept ourselves for who we are, even if nobody else does. -Mary J. Blige

If the worst thing that can happen is that nobody laughs, then I can deal with that, because the worst thing that can happen at the factory is that I could lose a limb or be crushed by a huge machine. -George Lopez

I didn't want to be nobody, and that was the only way I could be somebody was to do stand-up. -George Lopez

God comes first – if I don't love him, I can't love anybody, and if I can't love me I can't love nobody. -Mary J. Blige

I don't hate nobody. I hate certain conditions that are inflicted upon the people – and they're helpless with it. -Mos Def

I feel like I was the only person who was capable of making this type of music in this type of way. I don't rap like nobody, I don't try to sound like nobody. -Mos Def

Just because you've made a couple movies, you've done some good movies, you've been nominated for some Academy Awards, whatever, nobody's entitled. It's a business. If they don't see it, I can think they're wrong, but I'm not entitled to a $15 million budget to make a film. -Edward Norton

Hip-hop don't have no fresh energy, none at all. It's money driven, everybody tryin' to make that cheque, nobody putting art in their albums any more. -Andre Benjamin

There's always a lot of talk about motivation to race, but nobody really knows what I do or what I think apart from myself, so I don't really care what people think. -Kimi Raikkonen

I'm very jealous of my daughter's education. She's been inspired by her teachers, and nobody inspired me as a teenager. -Jenny Eclair

It's harder to be a success, globally, and be artistic. Harder to have that balance than just to be artistic when nobody understands you. -Andre Benjamin

It's too expensive, that's the thing nobody wants to talk about. It is too expensive to make movies. That's not true, it is too expensive to market movies. Making movies is not. -Kevin Smith

I heard about the book and I said, 'Oh my god, I've got to read this book,' and I didn't know that a white woman wrote it. Nobody said that to me, they just said, 'The Help – Oh my god, you've got to read it.' Everyone failed to mention it was a white woman, I think, because nobody really wants to talk about race. -Viola Davis

When my mother was born on 14 April, he named her after a Latin American holiday, the Day of Americas, that nobody knew about. My due date also happened to be 14 April. -America Ferrera

There's a lot of people out there who go through hard times, and they feel alone. They feel like nobody is there. But I'm in the same boat. -Brandy Norwood

When I'm swinging well, nobody hits the golf ball any better than I do. -David Duval

I also believe that you are what you have to defend, and if you're a black man that's always going to be the bar against which you are judged, whether you want to align yourself with those themes or not. You can think of yourself as a colourless person, but nobody else is gonna. -Don Cheadle

Plus, when you get in tough situations, like the bases loaded and nobody out, you never give in. -Dwight Gooden

You got the ball in your hands and you're in command, and if you get your good pitch where you want it, nobody's gonna hit you. -Dwight Gooden

I got to that desperate place where nobody could help me but God. -Cheryl James

I think of myself as a funny guy but nobody thinks I'm funnier than my daughters. -Jerry O'Connell

Now that people know who I am, I get offered plays here and there. It was so much easier to do it when nobody knew who I was. I can't even imagine that somebody would come and pay money just to come and see me now. -John Corbett

Your mallet or your stick goes through the instrument, the sound goes out and then wherever the sound goes nobody knows, you know. -Evelyn Glennie

Show business is my life. When I was a kid I sold insurance, but nobody laughed. -Don Rickles

Everybody thinks that they're going to time the market, they're going to sharpshoot the market, and buy right at the bottom. The truth of the matter is that nobody is good at it. -Barbara Corcoran

Don't change for nobody. -Romeo Miller

As long as I'm in great shape, nobody beats me, for sure. -Usain Bolt

I was terrified of vault, like literally I hated it. I had a fear of running as fast as I could at a solid object, which is I think a normal fear to have because nobody would really want to do that. Once I got over the fear of running into the table I just kind of relaxed and now it's like autopilot. I love it. -Alicia Sacramone

It used to be that we disagreed over the basic facts we were fighting over, and we had different opinions about them. Now I think we accept different sources of authority. … And people can establish credibility on their own say-so as long as nobody follows the trail and calls them out on it. -Rachel Maddow

All my good movies, nobody sees. -Chris Evans

I didn't really like my Sydney accent – nobody likes the sound of their own voice – and when I was a little younger tried to change my accent gradually. But I've only ever really lived in Sydney and Los Angeles, so I haven't been influenced by the accents of some far-off land. -Callan McAuliffe

I have a coach but there's nobody at my level in Gaza. I have to do most of my training sessions on my own. -Nader al-Masri

I showed up in L.A. with $500 and a backpack and I stayed at a shelter, so nobody handed me anything. I worked for every single thing that I have. -Jared Leto

There's nobody in the world that knows me better than my sister. -Tia Mowry

When you're sick, nobody takes care of you like your mom. -Trisha Yearwood

I am the best. There is nobody better than me. -Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

Over the years all these vampire movies have come out and nobody looks like a vampire anymore. -Johnny Depp

Honestly, I don't listen to nobody else's music but my own. It's kind of like sports to me. You don't see Kobe Bryant at a LeBron James game – he just works on his own game. And that's what I do. I only listen to me, so I can criticize and analyze and all those things. -Lil Wayne

I'm nobody's deputy. I am who I am. I'm my own person. -Mike Lee

In L.A., nobody is talking about football. No television stations. You see it nowhere. -Ruud Gullit

For a number of years in England nobody had any idea what I looked like. -Sacha Baron Cohen

I know this is going to sound very self-serving, and I apologize for it, but if you can write comedy, you can pretty much write anything, because it's the hardest. It's the most technically demanding, the most precisely evaluated form of writing. People know if it works or not. There's a big button marked 'fail,' and that's when nobody laughs. -Steven Moffat

I don't have problems with nobody, period. -Trick Daddy

I also believe that if you're really a writer, you'll write, and that nobody could stop you. -Jennifer Weiner

I had a lot of encouragement and tolerance from my parents, but I also have many friends who didn't get that from their parents and in a way they have more strength from spending years where nobody believed in them. -Michel Gondry

You know, nobody can ever cook as good as your mama. -Paula Deen

The great thing about having spent all this time on film sets is that I've been able to watch directors and how they work. I now know that this is what I want to do as well: to tell stories visually. But it's definitely my vision that I want to put across, nobody else's. -Catherine McCormack

When I was a little girl, I loved monkeys. I wanted to be a primatologist. I went to the careers office to ask how. Because nobody could give me a good answer, I opted for acting. -Audrey Tautou

I enjoy wearing pins, and nobody tells me to do it. -Madeleine Albright

There are so many roads you can take that will lead you the wrong way, that nobody will hear your name. -Maria Sharapova

First of all, this whole idea of this one percent versus the 99 percent, it's a false statistic. There's nobody that is wealthy saying, let's go get the people that aren't. First of all, there's no versus. He's creating a false class warfare in a country where there is no class structure. -Jon Lovitz

You can make a very good argument that society would be much worse off if you let 10 rapists and murderers free rather than put one poor, wrongly accused accountant in prison. And so my only point on that is that it should open up an argument. It should not sort of settle one, because nobody disagrees with it. -Jonah Goldberg

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

I'm collateral damage. I'm road kill. And in 72 hours, nobody is going to remember who I am nor are they going to care. -Eric Massa

Whenever somebody hates you too much it usually means they have deeper feelings for you because nobody bothers to hate you unless they actually feel something. -Gabriel Mann

The thing with film and theater is that you always know the story so you can play certain cues in each scene with the knowledge that you know where the story's going to end and how it's going to go. But on television nobody knows what's going to happen, even the writers. -Alan Cumming

I've always thought that the balance between the side of my mind that knows what it is doing and the side that really hasn't got a clue has to be carefully maintained because if you write too knowingly then you get chilly, and if you write too unknowingly you write bollocks that nobody else can understand. -Andrew Motion

Good is somebody who delivered and allowed the company to overcome obstacles, without leaving a profound impact on its culture. Great is somebody who leads his company to achievements and performance and value that nobody was expecting it had. -Carlos Ghosn

Well there's nobody who has a more supportive husband than I do, and he has a business that he runs, and it's his own business, so he has work to do, my kids have school to do, I mean, people have – there are other things in life besides politics. -Caroline Kennedy

In 1984 nobody knew what cable was going to be. It was there, but you didn't know where it was going. -Curtis Armstrong

I was looking at the setlist backstage and I just said, 'Oh my God, the first six songs nobody's gonna know.' But they all knew the lyrics. It just blew me away. -Meredith Brooks

I went to Spago once, eight years ago. I had just closed a deal. I thought it would be fun to go to Spago and it wasn't. I got a bad table and nobody paid any attention to me. -Michael Tolkin

It's really wonderful to be able to be nobody, and then have a moment when I can be somebody, and then go right back to being nobody again. -Natalie Merchant

My parents have been dead for many years, and when your folks are gone there is nobody standing between you and eternity. -Tony Parsons

There's nobody else on the face of this earth that's playing a sport at a highest level… with a transplant. That alone continues to inspire me, because I realize throughout the whole world the struggles that people are going through. I need to inspire them the best way I can. -Alonzo Mourning

I had the privilege of practicing medicine in the early '60s, before we had any government. It worked rather well, and there was nobody on the street suffering with no medical care. -Ron Paul

I realized I was tired of singing about trees and flowers. I wanted to sing about real life. From then on, nobody could tell me anything was better than blues. -Robert Cray

When I'm writing I just think there's only the page and me and nobody else. -Roddy Doyle

I'd be a lot more excited about eliminating earmarks if we reduced all of the spending by whatever the earmarks used to be, but nobody's, apparently, going to talk about doing that. -Roy Blunt

All the jobs I've gotten in the last two years are because directors have seen the work I've done – indie films, plays, short student films, TV – since I moved to the states in 1996. I mean, I have an entire career in Canada that nobody has seen. -Sandra Oh

You cannot trust 25 guys in a locker room to have the same respect and training as I do with a weapon. That I do understand. I've carried a gun for 10 years. I've carried them in the locker room, and nobody really knows about it. I know how to handle myself. -Luke Scott

If you're going to figure something out, study ethics. You can ask What's the answer? What's Right and Wrong? What I learned is that nobody knows the answer and there is no Right and Wrong. So I'm incapable of becoming a fundamentalist because there are no absolutes, there's always a what if. -Duff Goldman

You could have another downgrade. You could certainly have a stock market reaction that would be negative. And, I think nobody who looks at it objectively would want to happen. -Rob Portman

That result at the French was a big break for me. I had been playing quite well up until that point but nobody really expected me to do well on clay – it was my worst surface. I had had some success on the clay but I was a set and a break up in the semi-final against Jausovec and maybe the enormity of the occasion got to me. -Jo Durie

It wasn't not being famous any more, or even not being a recording artist. It was having nobody who needed me, no phones ringing, nothing to do. Because I'm still too young to do nothing. I was only 24 when all that happened. Now, at 40, I feel I've got more to give than I ever have. -Gary Barlow

Let nobody be fooled, the next two quarters are not going to be easy either in terms of growth or employment. -Luis de Guindos

My faith is a very important part of my life. I do not feel that I have become president of this country by accident, but that I have been chosen because nobody can accuse me of favouring the Albanian Muslims or the Orthodox. -Boris Trajkovski

Of course, I would like to play the guy next door, but nobody's going to hire me for that kind of role. -Brad Dourif

Sixty percent of all Indians live in urban areas, but nobody's writing about them. They're really an underrepresented population, and the ironic thing is very, very few of those we call Native American writers actually grew up on reservations, and yet most of their work is about reservations. -Sherman Alexie

In the middle of the night, when you're ambiguously ethnic, like me, when you're brown, beige, mauve, siena, one of those lighter browns in the Crayola box. You have to be careful of the cops and robbers, because nobody's quite sure what you are, but everybody has assumptions. -Sherman Alexie

Bass players are always the intellectual kind, but nobody knows it. -Stanley Clarke

It's not a case of 'look at me in my car'; it's more, 'look at the car'. I like the idea of other people enjoying them, because everything has become a bit faceless and nobody likes the motor car any more. -Jay Kay

I think once every person on the planet sees 'New Moon' and there's nobody left who hasn't see it, then I think they'll be able to go see 'Ninja.' -Joel Silver

When I was living on the street I would be standing out in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater, leaning against my car and signing autographs and nobody had any idea that I was living in it. -Danny Bonaduce

Perfume is pretty good because nobody has to hold the product by their face or use it. -David Fincher

I came here knowing nobody. I worked clubs as a singer and even the doors a few times before I landed some TV roles. -Chazz Palminteri

If you start with the mindset that you know nothing, you will learn a lot that nobody knew before. -David Maraniss

There are lots of countries that are having these kinds of internal civil wars in other parts of the world and nobody is talking about intervening. -Colin Powell

When you get billions in aid and your weapons resupplied and your ammunition stock resupplied, you don't learn the lesson that war is bad and nobody wins. -Abdullah II of Jordan

I am confident that nobody… will accuse me of selfishness if I ask to spend time, while I am still in good health, with my family, my friends and also with myself. -Nelson Mandela

I was not encouraged to follow the career of a writer because my parents thought that I was going to starve to death. They thought nobody can make a living from being a writer in Brazil. They were not wrong. -Paulo Coelho

If the people don't want to come out to the ballpark, nobody's going to stop them. -Yogi Berra

At a time when nobody thought we'd ever see a new steel mill built in America, we took a chance and built one in a corn field in Indiana. Today Steel Dynamics is one of the largest steel producers in the United States. -Mitt Romney

And if small businesspeople say they made it on their own, all they are saying is that nobody else worked seven days a week in their place. Nobody showed up in their place to open the door at five in the morning. Nobody did their thinking, and worrying, and sweating for them. -Paul Ryan

My career was really odd, because I literally had a greatest hits album out and nobody knew who I was. They knew the songs, but they didn't know me. -Kenny Chesney

My concept of an advice giver had been a therapist or a know-it-all, and then I realized nobody listens to the know-it-alls. You turn to the people you know, the friend who has been in the thick of it or messed up – and I'm that person for sure. -Cheryl Strayed

By the time I was 30, nobody would work with me. I was friendless, I was hopeless, I was suicidal, lost my family – I mean, it was bad. Bottomed out, didn't know what I was going to do. I actually thought I was going to be a chef – go to work in a kitchen someplace. -Glenn Beck

At this stage of my life I would rather try and have some small impact within a company and suffer through those things than make such a big stink that nobody can trust to work with you. It's very important in an environment of a big institution that people don't feel threatened that you're going to expose them in any way. -Gelsey Kirkland

You won't talk to anybody who breaks lyrics down more thoroughly. It's just a complete deconstruction, and when you start to rebuild, nobody has the capacity to do it like me. Which is not to say I'm better, it's just that there's a unique quality to everyone. -Harry Connick, Jr.

People who are running for office mislead the American people by saying that there's a three-point plan or a bumper sticker kind of way of bringing down gasoline prices. The fact of the matter is that nobody can do that. The price of oil is set on the global economy. People who have looked at this closely and hard know that's the case. -Ken Salazar

I understand that it's good tactics to categorize me as a close-minded, unobjective extremist, but nobody that respects me has those views. -Alan Dershowitz

If I told people that I knew what I was doing, nobody would believe me, so why even try and fake it? -Andrew Mason

If there's no relationship with a father who's absent, nobody talks about it. -Charles B. Rangel

There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I've realized that it's time for me to show my audience that you don't have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect. -Katy Perry

I'm in nobody's circle, I've always been an outsider. -Joan Rivers

Postwar America was a very buttoned-up nation. Radio shows were run by censors, Presidents wore hats, ladies wore girdles. We came straight out of the blue – nobody was expecting anything like Martin and Lewis. A sexy guy and a monkey is how some people saw us. -Jerry Lewis

No matter how many times people say it – 'Oh, I'm just writing this for myself' 'Oh, I'm just doing this for myself' – nobody's doing it for themselves! You're doing it for an audience. So whether I'm performing or writing a book or playing music, it's definitely to be put out there and to be received in some way, definitely. -Steve Martin

All right, then nobody can complain if we ask pregnant women to make parachute jumps. -Muammar al-Gaddafi

I know from my own experience and from other people in the business that when you come from a place where nobody knew who you were and then there is this sudden shift to where everybody now knows who you are, there's an adjustment that you have to make. -Kristen Wiig

When I was elected President nobody asked me to negotiate between Israel and Egypt. It was not even a question raised in my campaign. But I felt that one of the reasons that I was elected President was to try to bring peace to the Holy Land. -Jimmy Carter

When times are tough, constant conflict may be good politics but in the real world, cooperation works better. After all, nobody's right all the time, and a broken clock is right twice a day. -William J. Clinton

When I say to you, there is nobody like me, and there never was, that is a statement I want every woman to feel and make about themselves. -Lady Gaga

The minute you got the Nobel Peace Prize, things that I said yesterday, with nobody paying too much attention, I say the same things after I got it – oh! It was quite crucial for people, and it helped our morale because apartheid did look invincible. -Desmond Tutu

When you start at catering college, nobody prepares you for a book tour or public speaking. -Rene Redzepi

Being president is like running a cemetery: you've got a lot of people under you and nobody's listening. -William J. Clinton

I guess I think about doing stuff that nobody else has done. -Lena Dunham

From the moment I wrote 'Leaf Storm' I realized I wanted to be a writer and that nobody could stop me and that the only thing left for me to do was to try to be the best writer in the world. -Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Right now the producers of 'Modern Family' have no idea how many people watch our show each week on all platforms, and nobody seems to want to tell us. If a disproportionate number of any show's viewers watch in alternative ways, then, under the current system, that show may not appear to be as strong as it actually is. -Steven Levitan

Some people ask me whether I'm a 'mama's girl' or a 'papa's girl.' I'm nobody's girl. My brother clings to our parents; I'm the one shoving them out the door. -Hayden Panettiere

I had these kind of unrealistic expectations that were fueled by romantic comedies, and it has both helped me and hurt me in many ways. It helped me because, in general, they've made me hopeful. I just figure things will eventually work out for me. But nobody is like any Tom Hanks character. Nobody is Hugh Grant. No one is Meg Ryan! -Mindy Kaling

Woody Allen is really the ultimate. I love that he believed in himself enough to do what he did. And I have that same feeling – that there's nobody that looks like me in movies, nobody would cast me as a romantic lead, but I want to do it and I feel confident that I can. -Mindy Kaling

We used to play music for fun. Much more than now. Now nobody picks up a guitar unless they're paid for it. -Leonard Cohen

I was the girl who nobody thought would ever get married. I was going to be a fashion nun the rest of my life. There are generations of them, those fashion nuns, living, eating, breathing clothes. -Vera Wang

There's always someone in every group of friends that nobody likes. -Dane Cook

I can do more than just stand-up comedy, and the only way I'll be able to show that is if I do it myself. Because nobody trusts that I can do it. -Dane Cook

When I was in the country and I was trying to play, nobody seemed to pay too much attention to me. People used to say, 'That's just that ole blues singer.' -B. B. King

I make movies that nobody will see. I've made movies that even I have never seen. -Christopher Walken

It's interesting – a lot of good actors are good mimes. But I'm terrible. If I tried to do an impression, nobody would know what I was doing. -Christopher Walken

A lot of people have something to say about 'Wuthering Heights,' but nobody quite nails it. -Andrea Arnold

I was terribly gawky, too goofy to become a high-kicking cheerleader, with stringy brown hair and bad posture. Definitely nobody noticeable! -Helen Slater

Although I'm a business major out of McGill University, I know nothing… but then I found out much later in life, nobody knows anything. -William Shatner

This is my saddest story: In grade school, they would have us open our Valentine's cards and read them out loud. I always sent cards to myself because nobody else did. -William Shatner

I'm difficult for management. That's why I have the reputation because nobody challenges management. -Keith Olbermann

People pay a million dollars to be recognized, but nobody cares about them. They cared about me because I did things other men were afraid to do. That's why my fans identified with me. -Evel Knievel

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can. -Neil Gaiman

Around my house, I won't even speak to my family unless they first address me by my official Berzerker name, Godred Crovan, Victor of Sky-Hill and Ruler of Man and the Isles. And now that I think of it, that's probably why nobody speaks to me unless it's time to feed the dogs or take out the garbage. -Zakk Wylde

I loved photography and everybody said it was a crazy thing to do because in those days nobody made it into the film business. I mean, unless you were related to somebody there was no way in. -George Lucas

You can go into neighborhoods in the United States where people dress a certain way because they don't want to be out of touch, where boys wear pants down to their knees, which nobody has compelled them to do but they pick up the cultural norms, or where girls are improperly dressed by my eyes, but that's what they see in the media. -Hillary Clinton

I don't expect people to get me. That would be quite arrogant. I think there are a lot of people out there in the world that nobody gets. -Bjork

There's no blueprint for where I should be. I see myself as a young, good actor who still has a lot to learn. There's nobody at any point in their career who is the finished article. -Daniel Radcliffe

I'm 5-foot-5, and I'll wear a big parka and put the hood up, and nobody gives me a second glance. -Daniel Radcliffe

If you choose to do something, then you shouldn't say it's a sacrifice, because nobody forced you to do it. -Aung San Suu Kyi

I play a nobody in Japan. -Jackie Chan

Anyone can be a Superman, but nobody can be Jackie Chan. -Jackie Chan

The leg drop was a move that nobody really used, and nobody ever hit the ropes and jumped up really high, so I tried it out in Japan and the people loved it. That's how I came up with it. -Hulk Hogan

We made sure nobody died on the show. We made sure nobody ever drowned on 'Baywatch.' -David Hasselhoff

I care about me now. When I didn't care about me, I was, like, 'Why is this going wrong? Why is my life so bad?' But when you don't care about yourself, nobody else is going to care about you. So I learned to love myself, even if nobody else does. -Mary J. Blige

Yonkers made me strong and made me believe in myself, because so many people would doubt you and not believe. There are people that would believe in you, but the environment was so harsh, nobody wanted you to get out, you know? -Mary J. Blige

When I was a little girl you used to learn to sew all the holes in things, darning socks, but nobody mends things anymore. -Vivienne Westwood

Quite often you want to tell somebody your dream, your nightmare. Well, nobody wants to hear about someone else's dream, good or bad; nobody wants to walk around with it. The writer is always tricking the reader into listening to the dream. -Joan Didion

I can't do anything I want to. I mean, I can't have my own TV show. I can't have my own movie. But within my little world, nobody tells me what to put on the albums. -Lou Reed

I've always got stuff in my head in case I meet somebody like Steven Spielberg or someone like that, where I can hopefully say something to them that nobody else has ever said and get a laugh out of them. -Drew Carey

From the beginning, I knew intuitively that if nothing else, music was safe, and that nobody could tell me anything about it. Music didn't need a middleman, whereas all the other things in school needed some kind of explanation. -Eric Clapton

I bleed like nobody else. -Ric Flair

Anybody who goes searching can find enough artistic things I've done that nobody can ever say I sold out. -David Allan Coe

If there's something that can be formulated, regulated, give you security, then nobody would lose money. Every movie would be successful. And that's certainly not the case. -Ang Lee

When I started out, nobody gave me scripts, so I had to write. -Ang Lee

I'm not exaggerating when I say that the 761st was Patton's best tank unit and nobody knew about it. -Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

I feel like I've always been a full-time historian, but nobody knows it. -Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

There's nobody I look up to, really. -Rod Stewart

What the world needs is a small, compact, flexible fusion technology that could make electricity where and when it is needed. The existing fusion program is leading to a huge source of centralized power, at a price that nobody except a government can afford. -Freeman Dyson

My natural instinct after doing something shameful is not to rush into the street boasting about it but to put on dark glasses and head for the next county, hoping nobody notices I've been in the neighborhood. -Russell Baker

I have nobody. I have surrounded myself with people who are fake just because I need to talk to somebody. -Nikki Reed

I think one of the major differences between Wonder Woman and Jessica Jones is that Wonder Woman is iconic and much better known, so you get into a lot of ridiculous expectations, like what's her costume going to look like? Well, nobody knows who Jessica Jones is, except for fangirls and boys. -Melissa Rosenberg

My only saving grace is that I actually collect things that nobody else is interested in. -Phil Collins

I don't rap like nobody, I don't try to sound like nobody. -Mos Def

I really want people to understand that nobody is perfect and that things happen in life beyond our control. -Lil' Kim

The businessman says 'If I don't do it first, somebody else will.' The artist says 'If I don't do it first, nobody else will.' -LeRoy Neiman

Because of the economic crisis, China and the United States are bound together. This is a totally new phenomenon, and nobody will fight for ideology anymore. It's all about business. -Ai Weiwei

To talk about a relationship trivializes something that's nobody's business. -Jennifer Aniston

I'm a classic emerald green Sixties Jaguar that nobody can own, but my husband is allowed to drive. -Tori Amos

I don't wanna hear nobody complain that they're getting paid all this money and people won't leave them alone. It's part of it. -Mark Wahlberg

I'm just fiercely protective. It's like, that's my lair and nobody messes with my lair. -Whitney Houston

Humans all want to beat the clock but nobody ever does. -Shirley Manson

The most solitary I ever felt was when I was living in New York. I used to live in Enrico Caruso's old apartment, and I had a special staircase that took me up to the roof. There was nobody up there. -Robert Duvall

I have got a few misters interested but nobody special these days. -Francesca Annis

Clothes if they are not well cut, you can kill nobody. A building poorly built can kill people. It's a much more difficult work. I would not compare myself with that. -Karl Lagerfeld

The story with anorexic girls – nobody works with anorexic girls. That has nothing to do with fashion. -Karl Lagerfeld

The trouble is now, with rock'n'roll and stuff, it gets so big that it loses what once upon a time was a magnificent thing, where it was special and quite elusive and occasionally a little sinister and it had its own world nobody could get in. -Robert Plant

When I won the world championship, in 1972, the United States had an image of, you know, a football country, a baseball country, but nobody thought of it as an intellectual country. -Bobby Fischer

God knows why nobody ever learns from the preceding generation – but they don't. -Doris Lessing

Once you have love as a motivator in a story, your character is free to do anything. Once you say the character is in love, he can do the craziest thing that nobody would do who's not in love. Once you're in love, you have that excuse to go and do whatever you want. -Josh Hutcherson

In London I feel free; nobody bothers anyone and everyone is free to express themselves. -Manolo Blahnik

I did not know how to paint a mural. I did not know how to prepare the surface. There was nobody from the Renaissance around who could advise me, and I did the best I could. -Maurice Sendak

The reason nobody else in my business has any impact is because they're all comatose. -Harry Chapin

When I die there is nobody to take my place. -Keith Haring

When you look at Michael Jackson, there's nobody who loves him in that family, nobody. If they did, they'd tell him he didn't have to do all that in order to be famous. All he has to do is keep doing his music and be himself. Michael's been a little touched for about 20 years, but somebody needs to pull him aside and tell him they love him. -Jamie Foxx

I'm sure Sting's a lovely guy. It's just that nobody wants to be seen as that holier-than-thou thing. That over-earnestness is a bit of a problem with people in bands and celebrities or whatever. -Jarvis Cocker

I would rather do a play because it's instantaneous. You go on the stage, and you know whether it's happening or not. Somebody asked me 'What is acting?' And I said, 'Acting is listening.' And if you ain't listening, nobody's listening. -Charles Durning

At the end of the Middle Ages, nobody would ever have expected the monasteries to vanish from the scene within a generation – yet they did. Change does happen. -Rowan Williams

For instance, I'm always fascinated to see whether, given the kind of fairly known and established form called popular music, whether there is some magic combination that nobody has hit upon before. -Brian Eno

Every band I've worked with also wants to be countercultural in the sense that they want to feel that they've gone somewhere that nobody else has been. -Brian Eno

People used to say nobody can sing my songs but me – they're too personal. -Joni Mitchell

When the world becomes a massive mess with nobody at the helm, it's time for artists to make their mark. -Joni Mitchell

Every one of us have things that we believe about ourselves when nobody else is looking, nobody else is listening, nobody else is monitoring what we're doing. We believe things about ourself. -Phil McGraw

I know I live a charmed, beautiful life and nobody wants to hear a celebrity whine. The last thing I want to do is complain; I love what I do and I know every job comes with a downside. -Jennifer Garner

Kids are falling through the cracks and nobody notices it. That to me is what's wrong with the school system. -Melinda Gates

I don't give advice. 90% of the time nobody takes it anyway. I will give encouragement and if asked a question as to how, or why I did certain things and if I think this will help whomever is asking the question I will do this. -Dionne Warwick

Sometimes people take it for granted that they had success, especially nowadays when you have instant stardom. A lot of people feel entitlement and nobody is entitled to anything. -Donny Osmond

The big guys choose who they want to fight and they think about history: 'how many times I defended my title.' They try to break a record: 'how long I was there.' But if you look at the pedigree, who they fought, ain't nobody gonna give them credit for it because they fought a lot of people with no experience. -Evander Holyfield

I think the real problem is that nobody buys albums anymore, so you don't get the depth of the artists that are out today. What you get is whatever they felt is politically correct to get on there and actually make some impact. I think that's where you're losing your depth. You're only getting the very top of everything. It really bothers me. -Gary Allan

When I was a kid it was big news when someone flew around the world in a little aeroplane, but nobody cared when I did it. Then, to rub salt into my wounds, the customs people ripped my aeroplane to pieces, looking for stuff. -Gary Numan

Maybe I'm naive, but I subscribe to the idea that nobody is actually making strategic decisions about their career. Trying to do that would be like playing three-card monte on Canal Street. -Benjamin Walker

People never know what they want, though everyone says they do. If they did, nobody would ever be surprised. -J. J. Abrams

If we enter into the kind of world that Google likes, the world that Google wants, it's a world where information is copied so much on the Internet that nobody knows where it came from anymore, so there can't be any rights of authorship. -Jaron Lanier

I grew up in a musical family, but nobody was a professional musician. -Joshua Bell

I think all teenagers feel alone, and that nobody else knows what they are going through and all that sort of stuff. -Nicholas Hoult

When you take somebody's quote out of context, which happens all the time, nobody's ever going to go and do the research on their own and figure out that you got it wrong. -Thomas Frank

South Korea's economy is still difficult. I will create a country where nobody worries about putting food on the table. -Park Geun-hye

The hardest thing as an actor is that you work really hard constantly for these roles, and you invest so much in it. And when they don't come to fruition and nobody sees them, there's a part of you that dies a little bit. It's like, 'Ah! But I worked so hard!' But that's the business. -Adrianne Palicki

We're all made to make mistakes; nobody's perfect. -Corey Feldman

I do interviews and signings and readings and all of these people just hang off my every word. And then I go home and have dinner with my family and nobody lets me get a word in. -Kathy Reichs

If I can make one generalised statement, and generalised statements are never entirely true, nobody wants to be talked down to, kids included. -Spike Jonze

Qatar is giving 2.8% of our GDP to research. This is something again that is a breakthrough, as nobody was even thinking of research as a tool or component for advancement in this part of the world. -Moza bint Nasser

I only became a celebrity because I had a kid. Before I was pregnant nobody cared. I joke to my agent that having a baby made my career. -Busy Philipps

You know, 'Peepshow,' in retrospect that seems like a good fit for me, but in the beginning, I'm sure you remember, nobody was sure if the show was going to last. Everybody was like, 'What are you doing? You can't sing, and you can't dance. What are you doing in this show?' -Holly Madison

I think a lot of people like hidden-camera shows where they think they're spying on somebody who doesn't know they're looking at them. And nobody takes it seriously – you either enjoy it and get a laugh out of the reactions or not. -Betty White

Of course, nobody's tearing my door down. If you're successful you're going to intimidate and scare off the people you'd like to spend time with. They're not going to approach you. And the ones who do are often there because you are a celebrity. -Betty White

Instead of dumping all my money on an independent film that nobody would watch and most people would make fun of behind my back, I decided, 'I'm just going to buy a house.' -Daniel Tosh

You know, I lose patience really easily; I'd rather shop in the grocery store than in the department store. I can pick an apple like nobody's business. -Gail Simmons

When I criticize Joseph Beuys or Francis Bacon, nobody calls those opinions anti-male. Putting female artists or their subject matter off-limits is itself sexist and limiting. -Jerry Saltz

My first fight. I fought a girl that was a little bit heavier, a little bit more experienced and I was petrified because I didn't know what I was getting myself into. And I did really well against her and nobody believed it was my first fight. -Gina Carano

There's probably no experience more alienating than fame, other than a terminal illness, where you actually find yourself in a situation that nobody around you can relate to. -Diablo Cody

If you listen to Giuliani, it's like nobody did anything to improve the city except him. I'm not part of the history. Bloomberg's not part of the history. It's like, he did it. He's the only one. That's why he's a little crazy. -Ed Koch

One of the reasons surgeons have so much trouble separating Siamese twins is that nobody gets to do many of them. On the table, the anatomy is so different from normal, that you're constantly trying to figure out, 'Can I cut this? Does this wire lead to what?' It's like trying to defuse a bomb. -Ben Carson

The mind controls so much of the body. We are much more than flesh and blood; we are complex systems. Patients do better when they have faith that they're going to do better. That's why I always tell my patients and their families not to neglect their prayers. There's nobody I don't say that to. -Ben Carson

Nobody's all good or bad, and nobody's all light or dark. Every human being has so many different aspects and facets to them. And there can be something noble and something really dark and dangerous going on in a person all at the same time. -Anna Gunn

In reality, nobody gets successful in America by being lazy. -Bruno Tonioli

There's so many things that can go wrong in the execution of a project like a television show or a movie, so many little elements, any number of things, all the way to marketing – like they could market it poorly and nobody finds it and down it goes. -Bryan Cranston

In high school, I was on the youth advisory council for the Mayor's Office of Los Angeles, and that was kind of my first experience in the bureaucratic system. We tried to get things done, and nobody was really interested in getting anything done. -Rashida Jones

Control the public's perception of you and nobody will care if you have any talent. -Rashida Jones

People idealize or reminisce about their 20s, but nobody tells you beforehand that it's hard and unglamorous and often very unpleasant. -Zosia Mamet

I've realised that nobody's going to die if I don't get it right and that there are a number of things out there, beyond acting, that are very interesting and fulfilling. -Matthew Rhys

When I was 16, nobody else talked like me. Nobody else sounded like me. -Linda Hunt

I shop at thrift stores a lot. I have a lot of silver pitchers and I put my flowers in those. I collect antiques, so there are a lot of old rocking chairs… My friends call my home the vortex because nobody wants to leave. -Monica Potter

We watch a lot of Discovery Channel, shows like 'The Biggest Loser' and even 'Amazing Race.' You learn a lot about the world, it's fun and nobody's interested in beating anybody down. And then the opposite: I'm a huge fan of 'Survivor.' -Alison Sweeney

Writing is a very strenuous thing – it's like banging your head against a wall. At the end of the day, acting is better, just because nobody ever asked me if I wanted a Pellegrino in the writer's room. -Donald Glover

I work late at night. I'm awake and nobody bothers me. It's quiet and things come and talk to me in the silence. -Diana Gabaldon

Search engine marketing and search engine optimization are critically important to online businesses. You can spend every penny you have on a website, but it will all be for nothing if nobody knows your site is there. -Marc Ostrofsky

I feel like the so-called bad guys are never totally bad. I guess it's the closest thing I can do to reality: people act nice but nobody really is nice. We all have to balance that with something dark. -Vincent Cassel

Nobody ever thinks a song is about them. Well, not when it's mean. When it's a good song everybody thinks it's about them. And when it's mean, nobody thinks it's about them. -Sara Bareilles

I never want to play a show where it feels overly programmed, processed, and all that. For anybody that comes to one of our shows, the goal for me is to make sure that's their show. That nobody else is going to see that show ever again. You know what I mean? I try to make it different every day. -David Cook

The first thing I've learned is to trust nobody. -Josh Bowman

For me, modern technology has ruined romance and movies – nobody can run to the airplane gate anymore. -Lorene Scafaria

People think it's suspect and self-indulgent to make art, and I don't think that's true. Some people think you should be busy making something that you can sell in the marketplace, and if nobody wants to buy it, it must be crap. And that's not true. -Dana Spiotta

The revolution that takes place in your head, nobody will ever see that. -Gil Scott-Heron

I think I'm becoming more relaxed in front of a camera. I suppose I'll always feel slightly more at home on stage. It's more of an actor's medium. You are your own editor, nobody else is choosing what is being seen of you. -Michael Sheen

Whenever I'm in theatre situations I will go out of my way not to talk about my father, but in the film world I can be really proud of my family and say, 'You know what: my dad's a really, really famous theatre director,' because nobody has any idea. -Rebecca Hall

With iPhones, nobody has an excuse for writer's block. If you're at Whole Foods getting your green tea extract and you have a melody, you just drop it into your voice memo and save it for later. -Ryan Tedder

Everybody knows when you've got a role in a Spike Lee movie, you're gonna blow up. But I happen to be the only person who's had the lead in the two Spike Lee movies nobody saw. -Anthony Mackie

I met will.i.am in the studio and played him a couple of songs and he liked them. We're similar but there's nobody in my lane doing what I'm doing. -B.o.B

No planet is more earth-like than Earth itself, so if life really does pop up readily in earth-like conditions, then surely it should have arisen many times right here on our home planet? And how do we know it didn't? The truth is, nobody has looked. -Paul Davies

We need an unambiguous rule – a law – that nobody will step between the publisher and the consumer, full stop. -Barry Diller

The directories businesses still make nothing but money. They're overleveraged, they're bankrupt entities, but they still are the largest. This is all going to move online over time. Why Citysearch and Service Magic are so important to us, is because nobody has really colonized it yet completely. -Barry Diller

When we were making 'Arrested Development,' it was the hardest thing I'd ever done. You know, nobody was watching. We weren't getting feedback. The job wasn't paying very well. But the one thing I did feel confident about was: No one will ever be able to do this again. Because no one would be stupid enough to try. -Mitchell Hurwitz

I'm learning as I go. I don't know everything. I never had anybody to look at, nobody ever taught me, and where I'm from I didn't have any famous role models. -Wale

After school, I'd wait for someone to pick me up and no one would, so I'd be like, 'I guess I'll walk home.' I had to be a hustler, because nobody did anything for me. -Whitney Cummings

You never do a movie and not want it to work. You accept whatever it is. You have to, but nobody in their right mind would not want the movie to be getting talked about at the end of the year. -Albert Brooks

I mean, I think everybody realizes that calling people racist is a waste of time; nobody buys it anymore. -Bernard Goldberg

The movie industry used to be completely accessible. We all knew people in it, and nobody made a big fuss. -Stefanie Powers

The truth is nobody can own anything. That was an unheard-of concept among indigenous people. We invented that. -Tom Shadyac

It's very important in a restaurant to really do the right hiring because there's no restaurant that you have one cook and one chef and nobody else in the kitchen. Generally you have five, ten, 15 people with you. So that's really important is to train them right, but first you have to hire the right people. -Wolfgang Puck

Nobody walks this earth thinking he's better than I think I am – I think I'm great. At the same time, it's so obvious to me that I'm nobody. -Gary Vaynerchuk

People more than ever since I can remember are concerned about being out of step and out of line with their political party and won't cross over. There is nobody, man or woman, who wants to be left out, and people are fearful of that. People are fearful of their leadership as well. -Gary Ackerman

I think it's important that nobody forgets that although Hollywood commercially dominates the world cinema, in fact what comes out of the filmmaking here is only a tiny slice out of the massive amount of operation that goes on around the world. -Mike Leigh

I often feel like I could fall off the face of the Earth. As long as 'Mama' was around, nobody would really miss me. People really think of her as an actual person. People all the time see me and ask, 'Where's Mama?' Like she should be with me. -Vicki Lawrence

I started to make my own films, however small and however independent they were, from the beginning. And so, even though I was nobody, I was always the master of my own work. -Mira Nair

There is nobody that I know who believes that Bank of America is a human being who should be entitled for the same constitutional rights that the people of our country are. -Bernie Sanders

If nobody comes to your shows, then it's modern dance. If everybody comes to your shows and no one likes it, is that ballet? I don't know. -Mark Morris

Lots of people like Seth MacFarlane. Many other people like watching the Oscars. But nobody likes both, not even Seth MacFarlane, who has no idea what the Oscars are. -Rob Sheffield

At an incredibly divisive point in pop history, Donna Summer managed to create an undeniable across-the-board experience of mass pleasure – after 'Bad Girls,' nobody ever tried claiming disco sucked again. It set the template for what Michael Jackson would do a few months later with 'Off The Wall.' -Rob Sheffield

Every American wants a clean slate, but nobody wants to lose what they've got. -Rob Sheffield

It was R.E.M. who showed other Eighties bands how to get away with ignoring the rules – they lived in some weird town nobody never heard of, they didn't play power chords, they probably couldn't even spell 'spandex.' All they had was songs. -Rob Sheffield

I wouldn't be honest if I told you that in some moment of my life I had a lot of rage – probably hate – I'm not sure of hate, but rage. But you know what happens is that then you realize you cannot do to others what you think nobody has to do to anybody. Life is important for me and not any kind of life, quality too of life. -Michelle Bachelet

There has been a cultural shift. It is difficult to measure all that right now, but Chilean women have seen my presidency as a source of pride. Women are performing in jobs in Chile now that 20 or 30 years ago nobody would have dared to imagine. -Michelle Bachelet

When I was running 'round in America, about 30 years old, I didn't want no woman. I knowed I could make enough money to take care of myself, but I didn't want nobody to take care of. -David Edwards

My wife, Bojana, is a doctor; we both work intense hours and have months when we barely see each other. It isn't easy, but we realize nobody said it was supposed to be! -Michael Weatherly

When my colleagues went to endorse Rob Garagiola, nobody asked me for my opinion about that. And I didn't ask anybody else. I did what I thought was the right thing to do, and I made a decision, just like they did. -Donna Edwards

It was only when I started to dig my heels in that I started to realize that's what I needed to do – that nobody was going to open the door for me, that I had to make some space. -Dave Holland

I've got lots of books sitting here that have never been published because nobody could make any marketing sense of them. -Whitley Strieber

What Mexicans want and aspire to, is to go there and work temporarily and raise some money and come back home. That's what they want, so nobody's asking for those two, three million Mexicans that are illegally in the United States to become American citizens. -Vicente Fox

I'm glad nobody has asked me to adapt 'Wuthering Heights' because I think I would make a mess of it. Everybody makes a mess of it. I think the Bronte Sisters are mad. -Andrew Davies

I would love it if anyone gave me the job of adapting 'The Great Gatsby,' but nobody ever does. -Andrew Davies

Before the Beatles, songwriters were very anonymous people and nobody paid any attention to them. -Bjorn Ulvaeus

What I like about New York City is nobody cares. If they do, they don't ever approach. They just give you a 'What's up?' and that's it. -Chaske Spencer

I love players like Thurston Moore. I mean, you can put notes down on a sheet of paper, and if you practice and get your chops up, you can play like an Eddie Van Halen or a Steve Vai. But nobody can do what Thurston Moore does; he's his own guy. He talks through his instrument in a language that's all his own. -Frank Iero

If Quebecers want to keep the Canadian dollar, they'll keep it – and nobody can stop that, end of debate. -Jacques Parizeau

None of my friends call me L.C. That was just a high school nickname, and nobody refers to me like that anymore. -Lauren Conrad

I have freedom. But freedom means total selfishness. It means nobody cares much what you do. -Lynn Barber

If you stand for something you will have people for you and people against you. But if you stand for nothing you will have nobody for you and nobody against you. -Maurice Saatchi

I'm not blaming my mom for my life because I am responsible for me, and nobody can change me or ruin me easier than I can. -Mindy McCready

They can sonically sound like me, but nobody's ever gonna be able to write songs like T-Pain. There's only one of those. -T-Pain

I've got a song on every album, two songs as a matter of fact on every album without Auto-Tune, and that's the song that nobody talks about. It's weird. -T-Pain

I don't have beef with nobody. -Timbaland

I was very aware of office politics because I was so baffled by them. So much so goes unsaid. No one says 'you're a cheeky so-and-so,' no one says 'you're so moody,' nobody ever confronts anyone else about anything. But I'm very crass, and I'm very confrontational, and I have a temper. I had to be hyper-vigilant in every office I worked in. -Denise Mina

Most phenomenal startup teams create businesses that ultimately fail. Why? They built something that nobody wanted. -Eric Ries

I make playlists on my iPod like nobody's business! -Jenna Ushkowitz

Everybody always wants to rebel against their parents' music, but nobody listened to music louder than my dad. -Dan Auerbach

I don't care what straight people do, I don't care what gay people do. I don't care what nobody do. That's they business. I just care about what I do. You know what I'm saying? -ASAP Rocky

I can act normally, and I can go out, but people around you don't act normally. If it was normal, I'd go out and have my dinner and nobody would be video-phoning me eating my dinner. -Cheryl Cole

Look, nobody is ever exactly the same as anybody else. You're handed the cards you are for a particular reason, so you follow that path and see where it takes you. -Rumer Willis

All through my young life I wanted to sing, although nobody in my family knew it. -Gloria Gaynor

Growing up, nobody I knew even knew a writer. So it was a big adventure and something that I've wrestled with my whole life. I think it's a journey worth taking, really finding out who you are and what you do well. -Candace Bushnell

Compensation needs to be predominately performance-driven. If CEO compensation was performance-driven, which I believe it was in IBM's case, nobody would ever argue. If the shareholders didn't make billions and billions of dollars, I wouldn't make millions of dollars. -Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

I can walk down the street and nobody knows who I am. -Corey Stoll

I've done so many independents for so many years. Leads that nobody's seen. -Sam Rockwell

I have memories of films that nobody ever saw, that I was very proud of, and those are still great memories. -Sam Rockwell

When I first started out in this business, it was easy because nobody wanted anything from me. But now everyone wants something from me, so it's hard to break away and just be a songwriter. -Josh Turner

I find infidelity interesting because it's so revelatory about people. It's this really silent thing. Everyone acknowledges it as a general practice, but nobody likes to go beyond that, to get down to the nitty-gritty. -Junot Diaz

A father draws boundaries and calls a halt, whenever necessary. As I didn't have that, I was able to stay childishly naive that much longer – so I did what I liked, because there was nobody stopping me, even when I got it wrong. -Gerhard Richter

While nobody has identified any gene for religion, there are certainly some candidate genes that may influence human personality and confer a tendency to religious feelings. Some of the genes likely to be involved are those which control levels of different chemicals called neurotransmitters in the brain. -Robert Winston

When I went into GM there was a lack of morale. The company had gone bankrupt and the people who worked there were embarrassed. Underneath all of, though, there was a will to show what they were capable of, but nobody knew exactly what to do. -Edward Whitacre, Jr.

I love 'Breathless,' and 'Paris, Texas,' and 'Badlands.' I was obsessed with those films in my teens. I remember watching 'Badlands' and being amazed that there were these scenes in which nobody said anything and the silence told the whole story. -Agyness Deyn

You know, often films that are deemed positive, nobody wants to see them. -Ava DuVernay

There is nobody that's ever going to fill Ted Kennedy's shoes, and that's a tall order for somebody in the family to try to live up to. -Douglas Brinkley

Even post-WWII, nobody talked about the Holocaust. It wasn't until the '50s that people started talking about it. -Eli Roth

In the past, it weighed on me because nobody in my family is gay. I had no role models so I had to find my own way. -Mika

If I go out with no make-up and a tracksuit on, nobody comes up to me. And if they do, I won't do a photo because I wouldn't want any photographic evidence. -Paloma Faith

A film set is a workplace for me; it's my office, and nobody really wants to be in a stressful work environment. -Park Chan-wook

I don't go to shows because I just want to listen to the music performed live. I want to get to know the person who's performing it. Or I want to, like, take away a sense that I had an experience that nobody else is going to have again, or a unique experience for that moment. -Sia

If you look at the 9/11 highjackers, certainly they were educated, some even had university degrees, but nobody really checked their mothers, who were nearly all illiterate. -Greg Mortenson

I think it was 1987 – something like that – or '86, and I thought, 'When you go equity and you're gonna get paid, you'll finally be able to make a living.' But it was not to be so. I always bartended and waited tables so I ended up not doing theater for about a year because nobody would hire me. -Denis O'Hare

It definitely wasn't like, 'Hey, I'm going to steal that, and nobody's going to know.' The original 'T.R.O.Y.' came out in 1992, and it was like a 20th anniversary kind of thing. All of those intentions were there for it to be resurrecting a classic for a new generation. I tried to honor it. -Lupe Fiasco

If you gonna challenge my ways, know my history. Don't put nobody in my face that don't know about me, or they here to write an article on someone they thought was hot when they was hot. Come on, man. I been hot. -Raekwon

I'm not trying to fit in with nobody. I'm just me. -Bryce Harper

My favorite actor is Sir Ben Kingsley – nobody is as good as him, in my opinion. I think he's so good as an artist. -Josh Peck

I like a calm life where nobody bothers me. -Mariano Rivera

You're just trying to throw the best pitch you can and make sure you hit your spots. I don't have to force nobody. -Mariano Rivera

It's hard to be a clubhouse guy without being a great guy. I mean, the nature of the job is, you know, you're picking up dirty clothes and you're doing all the tasks that the players – that nobody else wants to do. -Terry Francona

In Boston I got to a point where I thought I was putting out fires more than being a baseball coach. And some of it was my fault. I was getting stubborn. My fuse was a little shorter than it needed to be. And that helps nobody. -Terry Francona

You know, I'm not a huge fan of the concept of 'passion' when it comes to careers. Instead of trying to answer the daunting question of 'What's your passion?' it's better simply to watch what you do when you've got time of your own and nobody's looking. -Daniel H. Pink

I think about things like the fact that nobody knows what time is. Time is what? Nobody can describe it, even physics or math or anything else. But it is what we continuously experience. It's the state of our unfolding, in a way, and in that sense that the continuous reopening of reality is what I think of as, perhaps, a worldview. -Marilynne Robinson

When I started writing my stories, I thought that not only nobody outside my language, but nobody outside my neighbourhood would get them. -Etgar Keret

'Star Trek' is the McDonald's of science fiction; it's fast food storytelling. Every problem is like every other problem. They all get solved in an hour. Nobody ever gets hurt, and nobody needs to care. You give up an hour of your time, and you don't really have to get involved. It's all plastic. -David Gerrold

If CEO compensation was performance-driven, which I believe it was in IBM's case, nobody would ever argue. If the shareholders didn't make billions and billions of dollars, I wouldn't make millions of dollars. My salary was the same for 10 years. It was all performance-based. -Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

In city after city, newspaper after newspaper has diminished its staff of critics, sometimes to zero. Film and T.V. critics have been dropped and not replaced. Maybe they're deemed unnecessary because nobody cares if anything's good or not. -Tom Shales

If I was elected God for a day, homosexuality wouldn't be permitted, but nobody's electing me God. -Mark Neumann

Nobody told me how hard it was going to be to get published. I wrote four novels that nobody wanted, sent them out all over, collected hundreds and hundreds of rejection slips. -Jerry Spinelli

I'm quite shy. Television presents an amplified version of yourself. When I'm on camera I'm pumping more adrenaline, I'm being a bit more engaging than I am in everyday conversation, but that's normal, isn't it? Otherwise nobody would want to watch. -Kevin McCloud

You have to keep your audience in your mind; if you're writing stuff that you know nobody's going to care about then you should rethink what you're doing! -Paullina Simons

There's nobody who doesn't have problems with the church, because there's sin in the church. But there's no other place to be a Christian except the church. -Eugene H. Peterson

There is no shame in taking pride in achievements or position. But nobody gets to the top alone. -Harvey Mackay

If nobody has really done a show about people in their twenties that has been successful, why? -Jason Katims

When I teach seminars, I tell people, 'Your stuff has to look like something that's out there, because otherwise nobody will take a chance on you.' -Christopher Moore

If you live in a place that you perceive to be a crowded place, you appreciate government; you see it as this thing that protects you against crime, that keeps order, that makes sure that nobody puts a massage parlor next to your house, that keeps other people's dogs from pooping on the sidewalk. -Gail Collins

If immigration reform passes, it'll be a big victory for sanity – nobody really believes it's healthy for a country to have millions and millions of undocumented noncitizens living in the shadows. But it'll also be a sign that the Republican Party has gotten tired of letting the Tea Party push it around. -Gail Collins

We like to say at Khosla Ventures, and this is one of the reasons to do what we do, we'll take technical risks that nobody else will. -Vinod Khosla

If you're in your early 20s and you're hanging out with a bunch of other people in their early 20s, nobody has a sense of the kinds of problems that real 'workers' run into every day. They're running into a completely different set of problems like 'What's the party going on right now that I should be going to?' -Aaron Levie

'Nobody goes to jail.' This is the mantra of the financial-crisis era, one that saw virtually every major bank and financial company on Wall Street embroiled in obscene criminal scandals that impoverished millions and collectively destroyed hundreds of billions, in fact, trillions of dollars of the world's wealth – and nobody went to jail. -Matt Taibbi

Imagine young people would grow up with the feeling that you have to be a hero to do your human duty. I am afraid nobody would ever help other people, because who is a hero? -Miep Gies

Far too many people, especially within evangelicalism, think that the individual is all that matters, and that the corporate dimension is a distraction or diversion. Of course Christianity is deeply personal for every single Christian; nobody gets lost in the kingdom of God. But you can't play that off against the corporate dimension. -N. T. Wright

Most of what Einstein said and did has no direct impact on what anybody reads in the Bible. Special relativity, his work in quantum mechanics, nobody even knows or cares. Where Einstein really affects the Bible is the fact that general relativity is the organizing principle for the Big Bang. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

When I was depressed, nobody expected anything of me, nor did I expect anything of myself. I was exempt from life's demands and risks. But if I were to find new life, who knows what daunting tasks I might be required to take on? -Parker Palmer

God loves you unconditionally, as you are and not as you should be, because nobody is as they should be. -Brennan Manning

On the Web you have to sum up what your piece of content is in one link or nobody is going to watch it. That's the same thing I've been hearing from TV executives – is we need a program that you can have on the side of a bus and someone can watch it go by and get what the show is and want to watch it. -Ricky Van Veen

In a way, 'On the Road's greatest victory is that nobody's eyes will be opened any longer by reading it; the last time I met any young people who were actually 'on the road' was when I covered Occupy St. Louis. Those few, dirty kids were fighting a battle even they couldn't articulate. -Tony D'Souza

I don't mind being 65, but nobody is gonna tell me to come in at 5:30 to have the early bird special. -Alan King

I see people having fits because their coffee is too hot or their baked potato is too cold, or some random something is imperfect and somebody can be blamed for it. These people can fly off the handle and nobody says, 'Too much beef will do that to a person.' If it's a vegan: a clear case of alfalfa sprout poisoning. -Victoria Moran

I think if you live in London, it's such a cosmopolitan city; nobody even notices different-race relationships. I assumed it would be even more liberal in the States, and it's totally the opposite. -Alex Kingston

I had something nobody else could do – I sang in a way that separated me – and, when you're trying to get noticed, you play your trump card. -Billy Porter

I meet people who are in movies, and the stuff that they write is terrible, but nobody tells them that because they're famous. So I worry that my stuff might be like that, too. -Jesse Eisenberg

I love actors, number one. There's probably nobody that you could name that I don't like, depending on what it is they're in. -Mark Hamill

I hate jealousy, I hate possessiveness. I'm nobody's possession. -Olga Kurylenko

There are so many glamorous actresses, but you know what? In the real world, nobody looks like that. -Rebel Wilson

At school, nobody thought I was smart and I became smart. Nobody wanted to be my friend and then I had lots of friends. -Rebel Wilson

I do secret stand-up shows around New York. I announce and tweet this to nobody – I get onstage and I do a quick five minutes. -Questlove

If you look back at President Bush, nobody agreed with his policies, but you understood that he was doing things that he believed was right. -Martin Heinrich

I think the biggest part of a good party is the host and then going around making sure nobody's left alone and knows enough about the people in the room to know who to introduce to whom. -Imogen Heap

I own all the characters I created, thanks to the Writers Guild, so nobody can do anything without me. The way it works is: If the copyright owners instigate a project, like the movie, then I get a fee as creator. If I instigate a project, like the musical, I pay a percentage to the copyright owners. -Sherwood Schwartz

The number who actually consented to the Constitution of the United States, at the first, was very small. Considered as the act of the whole people, the adoption of the Constitution was the merest farce and imposture, binding upon nobody. -Lysander Spooner

The problem is that rap is so often a caricature of its own image. Nobody comes to the table with the seriousness of the effect that it can have; nobody is prepared for that. -K'naan

I wrote 'The Zombie Survival Guide' because I wanted to read it, and nobody else was writing it. All I've been doing with everything I've written is answering questions that I had. -Max Brooks

People always say there's no such thing as bad publicity, and you always think they're right, because it seems self-evident: nobody's going to buy a magazine that nobody ever talks about, so people should want to buy a magazine that everybody's talking about. -Rachel Johnson

Consensus isn't just about agreement. It's about changing things around: You get a proposal, you work something out, people foresee problems, you do creative synthesis. At the end of it, you come up with something that everyone thinks is okay. Most people like it, and nobody hates it. -David Graeber

When I go to a party, nobody says hello. But when I leave, everybody says goodbye. -George Gobel

The need to be cared for is the base of everything. In the penitentiaries, you won't hear gangbangers and criminals say, 'No, I don't want to be cared for by nobody.' When you care about them, they'll open up to you. -Jim Brown

No man has a right to expect to succeed in life unless he understands his business, and nobody can understand his business thoroughly unless he learns it by personal application and experience. -P. T. Barnum

Right out of the University of California I had passed the bar, but Colorado was one of those places where anybody could come and nobody would ask what your background was or how long you had been here. So I took to the place with a liking. -Richard Lamm

I like having my picture taken and being a glamorous person. Sometimes when I find myself getting impatient, I just remember the times I cried my eyes out because nobody wanted to take my picture at the Trocadero. -Rita Hayworth

You see, it took me so long, it was such a struggle, to move myself out of musicals – because I had had a success, nobody wanted to allow me to direct a non-musical picture. It was so hard. And the only way I could get it going was to become a producer myself. -Stanley Donen

I'd like to write some songs that are so good that nobody understands them. Not even myself. -Townes Van Zandt

When you are overworked and exhausted, there is a sense of kind of delirium and that's why I think architects do all-nighters and they kind of do those deadlines. For four days I remember doing four nights in one row with no sleep. I mean nobody, unless you are crazy, would do that, but you are totally focused on the project. -Zaha Hadid

If you're eight and you live in Los Angeles and everybody has toys and you go to a country that has a Marxist dictatorship and there are no toy stores and nobody speaks English and it's blazing hot every day and they only have fish, which you don't like, then you tend not to appreciate the cultural lessons you're learning. -Zooey Deschanel

The moment you sense someone is making something because they think people are gonna buy it or like it, it's just so phony! The public has a nose for phony like nobody else. -Zooey Deschanel

If I want to believe that life is lonely and that nobody loves me, then that is what I will find in my world. -Louise L. Hay

We do not accost a physician as we do any mere nobody; nor a magistrate as we do a private individual. We try to get some advantage from the skill of the one and the position of the other. Walk in the sun, and your shadow will follow you, whether you will or not. -Saint Basil

Politicians don't like to face unpleasant realities. In truth, nobody does, but as individuals, we have no choice; if we neglect to plan ahead, we are held accountable. Fail to meet your responsibilities at work, and you get fired. Ignore your car's gas gauge, and you get stranded. -Nathan Myhrvold

I know this will blow your mind, but most people would probably never ever get it, but I listen to classical music when nobody else is around. It calms me down and I can get into this, like, deep thinking mode, you know, because there's really no lyrics to it, so you're not following something that – that you're listening to a story. -Vanilla Ice

I've been wanting to do a book about baseball for the longest time, and nobody will let me do it. It's the one thing from America I really miss. -Bill Bryson

I would say that nobody is going to work harder for your career than yourself – the one with the vision. No matter how many people you hire, nobody is going to get is as much as yourself does. So it's really important to be your own leader at all times and not hand it all off, otherwise the whole empire will fall apart. -Skylar Grey

When I started in the clubs, I had to work places where didn't nobody else want to work. I had to do clubs where street gangs were, had to do motorcycle gangs, gay balls and things of that nature. -Bernie Mac

If I was influenced by anything, it was architecture: structure having to do with logic. If you don't do it right, the whole thing is going to cave in. In a certain sense, you can carry that to graphic design. Fortunately, however, nobody is going to die if you do it wrong. -Paul Rand

When I'm in the Switzerland backcountry and nobody around looks like me, people were like, 'Can I touch your hair?' -Dhani Jones

You can always get better. Nobody can stop you from getting better, and nobody can stop you from trying to make something right. -Roseanne Barr

I want to say that nobody accuses their parents of abusing them without justification to do that. I didn't just make it up. A lot of things were true and abusive and horrible things that happened to me that my father did. -Roseanne Barr

I don't mind staying in one place for a while – I like to spend a lot of time in Los Angeles. It's a place where nobody goes out, where people will leave you alone. People in Los Angeles love themselves and they love what they do and they leave you alone. If you're isolated, you have a real advantage. You can work. -Nicolas Berggruen

I'm all about showing people that I'm a little messed up, I have a lot of the same problems you have. By exposing myself and putting myself out there, people can relate to me and my act won't grow stale. I mean, nobody wants to hear a comedian say, 'Life is great.' -Gabriel Iglesias

It's the old adage: You can make a pizza so cheap, nobody will eat it. You can make an airline so cheap, nobody will fly it. -Gordon Bethune

We can still do a stop motion feature for about one-third of what it costs Pixar or DreamWorks or Blue Sky to make a feature. But nobody is interested in a film that cost $50 to 60 million with the potential to do $120 million. They want to risk big money to make huge money. -Henry Selick

I worked a long time to get good at what I'm doing, and nobody handed me a recording contract because of who my father is. -Alexa Ray Joel

The smartphones and the computer separates everybody, makes you think that you don't need nobody else. -Bootsy Collins

I follow politics in a big way, and always have since I was a kid. I've got opinions, but they're opinions on both sides – not just anti-Republican, which is a real popular thing for a rap artist to do. If you dis Republicans, nobody will get mad. I think the two-party system sucks. It's absolutely ignorant. -Sir Mix-a-Lot

My career has been wacky and not at all normal. I've never had a manager, nobody gets jobs for me. I wind up working with artists that I meet. -Nile Rodgers

I don't like going to dinner by myself; I'll call for delivery before I do that. It's awkward if you're at a table all alone. I'm sure nobody even notices, but there's something about it. -Max Thieriot

There is only so much you can do if you're pulling weight and there's nobody there to play off of. You can't have those beautiful moments with new actors who are so worried about everything else but the moment. -Dawn Olivieri

To start, I wasn't really interested in acting at all, and I didn't make much impact. The first play I was in was on for five nights and I didn't show up for two of them and nobody noticed. But I stayed because that's where my friends were, and after a while I found myself wanting to inhabit other people's worlds and lives. -Aidan Gillen

You know, there's nobody where I've said, 'Man, I really want that guy's career.' I mean, each of us has to make our own go of it. -Ryan Reynolds

I'm an 'in the shower' or 'in the booth' kind of singer. I can sing, but I need either nobody to be able to hear me, or for me to be able to redo it. -T.I.

In Maine, nobody is required to belong to a union or pay dues. -Cynthia Dill

I started off writing kind of big summer, blockbustery kinds of movies, but at that time, I had no name, nobody knew who I was, and somebody told me I can't write movies that are going to cost $100 million to make and expect someone to buy them; it was just impractical. -David Leslie Johnson

Figure skating is theatrical, and a part of it is wearing costumes. My costumes were very over-the-top and outrageous for figure skating. But for me, it's all beautiful. Even when nobody else believed they were beautiful, I felt beautiful in them. -Johnny Weir

I have to have faith that we're going to succeed in transforming where we get our energy from. The big worry is whether or not we're going to do it before it's too late. And I think nobody knows the answer to that. -Josh Fox

Even though my mother had told me growing up that, 'If you win, nobody cares what color you are,' that wasn't necessarily true in the N.F.L. -Warren Moon

People now have been conditioned to believe they should only buy one song at a time, that nobody can make an entire record that would merit you paying, you know, $7, $8, $10 when CDs in the '90s were $18, $19 and people bought millions and millions and millions of them. -Brian McKnight

I don't date. It's hard to date when you're at home. Because nobody knows you. -Anna Nicole Smith

I know that sometimes the chemistry just isn't there between the model, photographer, hair and make-up. It's nobody's fault and you just have to do better next time. -Linda Evangelista

I still have shy qualities but nobody would believe that, just because we're in the forefront and I can talk a lot of mess and I can run my mouth. -Shemar Moore

I could describe my career in two words: who knew. I was on the path to becoming a professional baseball player, but I got injured in college. When I decided to move out to L.A. to try acting, nobody was betting on me, not even my family. But it's always been that way for me; nothing has come easy. -Shemar Moore

I was a rebel and I wanted to do something that nobody else did, and nobody else played the cello. Also, I was also a small kid and I liked the fact that it was big. -Maya Beiser

I was always a rebel in the sense that I always wanted to go my own road and do something that nobody else has done. -Maya Beiser

It is possible to think that the Internet will be a net positive for society while admitting that there are significant downsides – after all, it's not a revolution if nobody loses. -Clay Shirky

I have seen journals with good financial backing and editorial support die because they looked so bad nobody wanted to publish them. -Denis Dutton

I think it's important to realize that we're all just human. I mean, nobody is supernatural. -Amy Lee

There's nobody as good as the Ramones, never will be. -Joey Ramone

I was not popular in school, and I was definitely not a ladies' man. And I had a very painful adolescence, because it was all very strange to me. It wasn't like I got beat up, but the humiliation and isolation, and the existential 'God, I exist, and nobody cares' of being a teenager were extremely pronounced for me. -Joss Whedon

Once you've been somebody, really, you have a career and you're a nobody anymore, and you're getting older, you're living what's called a state of shame. -Mickey Rourke

Rock stardom will die because nobody will make enough money any more to be rock stars. -Noel Gallagher

I think it's easy to make impenetrable music that nobody can get, and you can hide behind that sometimes. -Trent Reznor

You know, if nobody knows who you are, nobody's going to buy your record. -Trent Reznor

There are lots of actors who are awful people, but nobody talks about them being awful because they've made billions. -Val Kilmer

In an ideal world, nobody's work would be just about the money. People could pursue excellence in what they do, take pride in achievement, and derive meaning from knowing that their work improved the lives of others. -Barry Schwartz

I've been really fortunate in that I guess I was hired to do 'A Cook's Tour;' I was already a known quantity, meaning I had written a really obnoxious book and nobody expected me to be anyone that I wasn't already. -Anthony Bourdain

Nobody I know would have expected me to marry Will, and nobody he knows would have expected him to marry me because we are so opposite. Yet we're perfect for each other. -Jada Pinkett Smith

The ocean is like a checking account where everybody withdraws but nobody makes a deposit. This is what's happening because of overfishing. -Enric Sala

A cardinal principle that we must not stray from – no exceptions – is that your genetic information is your business in terms of who sees it. Nobody should be gaining access to that information without your explicit permission, and nobody should be requiring you to take a genetic test unless you decide that that's what you want to do. -Francis Collins

I've been in so many good movies that I felt like nobody saw; it's a pretty dreadful feeling. -Woody Harrelson

Everybody pays lip service to the safety of the aeroplane, but nobody is prepared to pay for it. -Nevil Shute

During the Second World War, nobody built any concert halls or theaters. After the war, Lincoln Center was a very brave project because all those architects had never built a theater before. We've learned a lot since then about the nature of materials and the isolation that's required. -Hugh Hardy

I know some of those 'Glee' people, and they can really sing! I wish we could hear them live, because I know some of them and they can really sing like nobody's business. -Anika Noni Rose

It is nobody's right to be waited on and nobody's fate to do the waiting. -Margaret Heffernan

If the company depends entirely on you – your creativity, ingenuity, inspiration, salesmanship or charisma – nobody will want to buy it. The risk and the dependency are too great. -Margaret Heffernan

There are those who seem to feel they have no choice about being jerks in the present because they had a crappy childhood. Well, that's the definition of childhood; nobody gets out alive. You either get stronger from what you experience, or you turn it into a crutch, an excuse, a dodge. -J. Michael Straczynski

I always say to people, 'You know, if Romeo and Juliet got married, nobody would care about them.' Imagine Romeo and Juliet, six kids yelling, 'Mama, Mama, Papa, Papa!' -Marjane Satrapi

All cultures are different. Some commit genocide. Some are uniquely peaceful. Some frequent bathhouses in groups. Some don't show each other the soles of their shoes or like pictures taken of them. Some have enormous hunting festivals or annual stretches when nobody speaks. Some don't use electricity. -Casey Affleck

We had 90 percent rates, but nobody paid them. And so you had all these exemptions, exclusions, shelters, all this kind of stuff. And that's why most Americans are saying, 'Look, let's just be honest. Let's have lower rates, but everybody pays them.' -Rick Santorum

Anybody who's done standup will tell you that there's nothing like it. The show starts at 8:00, the curtain goes up and there's nobody else except you and the audience, and you just perform for them for two hours. Nobody yells, 'Cut!' There are no retakes. That is still the most exciting medium for me, and I love it. -Denis Leary

I love New York! You walk around, nobody notices you, you don't notice anybody, you're in your own little world. -Candis Cayne

There have been actresses who transitioned and nobody knew. But for me, with everybody knowing my history, it will be harder. I'm sure there are some great scripts calling for an ultra-glamorous woman. And I'm prepared to be ultra-glamorous. -Candis Cayne

I was fooling everyone by surrounding myself with funny people. But then I put myself out there – writing my own sketches, going on stage with nobody surrounding me – and for some reason people were still laughing. -Carly Craig

I graduated from Second City Los Angeles. It helped me tremendously, not only in my roles in films but in helping shape me into a writer as well. In improv, you will fail sometimes, so it teaches you to be brave and try anything. The worst that can happen is nobody laughs. -Carly Craig

I always vote for the guy I think can get it done. And it ain't nobody's business who I vote for, but I voted for Clinton twice. And that just blows people's minds when they hear that. -Toby Keith

That's one of the difficult things of being an actor that I'm still not used to. You have to go, you have to show up at these places where you know nobody, and sometimes with really impressive, high stakes people like Roman Polanski. -John C. Reilly

I can't imagine having a real personal thing, like divorce and marriage, all those things, being in the public eye. I try to not talk about anything personal, and then nobody has the fire to throw back at you, like 'You said this back then!' -Kirsten Dunst

I worked at ABCNews.com at a time when nobody knew what 'dot com' was. -Gayle Tzemach Lemmon

The crazy thing is we live on an ocean planet – nobody gets that yet. -Graham Hawkes

If you want to lower your risk of Parkinson's disease, caffeine is protective to some extent; nobody knows why. Head injuries are bad for you. They lead to Parkinson's disease. -Gregory Petsko

The brain was not built to walk into a bar, where you know nobody, and start a conversation. That's not the way humanity has courted. -Helen Fisher

I'm never going to be fast, and nobody will ever mistake me for being fast. -Tom Brady

My first show was called 'I Know I've Been Changed' in '92. I tried to do this show for years and years. It kept failing over and over and over again. Every time I went out to do the show, nobody showed up. I was like, 'What is this about?' -Tyler Perry

On a film set, there are runners who are 19, it's their first job, but to me they're as important as anybody else because if they don't do their job then nobody else can. So I don't think anybody should be treated disrespectfully or as if they're of a lower status. -Jim Carter

I created 'The Guild' because nobody was offering me the roles I thought I could do best at in Hollywood. -Felicia Day

There are a lot of pros to doing a film, as far as it helping your film career, and it is completely different financially. But theatre is the only place where you get to actually be the character, and nobody is going to come around and change it later. -Jimmi Simpson

I guess I figured out my dad was a fight coordinator pretty early, because I always saw him running into walls and stuff and nobody got mad at him, but it took me a lot longer to figure out what Mom did, because it was usually stuff on the telephone. -Devon Bostick

To me, acting is all about hard work and talent. Once you get your first wrinkle, if you are a female actress, nobody will care about what you look like – it's all about what you can do. -Dominik Garcia-Lorido

There's nobody who loves being around actors working more than David Mamet, especially actors bringing his tremendous dialogue to life. I've never seen a movie director who was happier to be directing a movie than Dave. -Clark Gregg

At school I'd want to be so small that nobody could see me, and so my work depicts and reflects me – what it felt like to grow up in a world of pain. -Willard Wigan

If you do things, whether it's acting or music or painting, do it without fear – that's my philosophy. Because nobody can arrest you and put you in jail if you paint badly, so there's nothing to lose. -Anthony Hopkins

I'm not that good looking… nobody is that good looking. I have seen a lot of movie stars, and maybe four are amazing looking. The rest have a team of gay guys who make it happen. -Tina Fey

Democracy in the studio is overrated. What you wind up getting is compromise on everybody's part, which means that nobody has their way, and that means nobody wins, including the fans. -Paul Stanley

I can't never stop nobody, can't knock nobody hustle. -The Notorious B.I.G.

I think Nick Markakis is a perennial All-Star, and nobody knows about him. I think people are learning about how good he is. -Cal Ripken, Jr.

We will all fail in life, but nobody has to be a failure. Failing at a thing doesn't make you a failure. You are only a failure when you quit trying. -Joyce Meyer

In the modern operas that 'Miss Saigon' and 'Les Miz' are, nobody breaks out into song from conventional book dialogue. Everything is sung from beginning to end, including the recitative. -Lea Salonga

When I got married in 1991, I had never been to a wedding, so I didn't know that my wedding was tacky. I didn't know that I was getting married in a quinceanera dress, because there was nobody there to cry over me and tell me I look like a fool. -Niecy Nash

Whether it's a blessing or a curse, I have always played someone like 10 years younger. When I was 23 or 24, I was playing 15 opposite Evan Rachel Wood in a movie called 'Pretty Persuasion.' She was 16 and nobody in a million years would have thought I was that much older than her. -Elisabeth Harnois

What I've learnt being an actor is that you've got to be lucky. I got less lucky, and nobody was interested. If a part came up, it would be for the main corpse's friend's brother who was having problems with his marriage. -Peter Capaldi

When I was a kid, nobody in my family had a car. And I didn't have many toys. The only toys I had were the ones I would steal. -DMX

I am proud of who I am, and nobody's going to steal that. -Hope Solo

The corporations are shoving just the worst music down everybody's throats, and I think the result of that is that nobody has any taste. They have no bar as to what is good. -Natasha Leggero

Places like the National Theatre or Sheffield, these great engines of theatre, make us cutting edge because they can be experimental. They can do plays that nobody else can afford to do in ways nobody else can afford to do. -Toby Stephens

I think Ryan Gosling is a really great actor who's meticulous about his work. And I'd love to have the guts that Johnny Depp has to actually go outside the box on a character. When he plays a character, he plays it in a way that nobody else would. -Ashton Kutcher

Performers are the neediest people in the world. Unless you've been in that goldfish bowl – nobody can judge unless they've worn those shoes. -Olivia Hussey

As a dancer, it's hard because there's such a perfectionist quality that you really have to let go of while you're acting, because nobody wants to a watch a perfect person on screen. -Kathryn McCormick

I don't think nobody should compare me to anyone, 'cause, at the end of the day, you've got a 'Pac, you've got Snoop, you got Tip, you got Wayne – there's only one Jeezy, man. Ain't nobody walked in these shoes but me. -Young Jeezy

Before 'Lucky Louie,' nobody would ever cast me to play a mom or a wife; nobody ever saw me in that role, which is weird, since that's who I really am. -Pamela Adlon

I've got to sing for Pops; I've got to keep my father's legacy alive because he started all of this. So I started calling people, and nobody would give me a chance, but I didn't let that stop me. I took money out the bank and I started making me a record, and I did it in this guy's basement. -Mavis Staples

I've always felt that people put me down, and I'd fight back. I played football 15 years, and nobody gave me any credit, and they never will do. -Vinnie Jones

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

In 1994, nobody could have predicted 'Shawshank' would one day be an iconic movie – and believe me, that would never have happened if Danny Glover had been Red instead of Morgan Freeman. -Bill Simmons

When I started out, there were a lot of things I knew I couldn't do, and a lot of things I only found out I couldn't do by going and doing it. And no-one was watching, and nobody cared. -Neil Gaiman

My knowledge and thirst for knowledge has no expiration date… It goes until I'm dead. I will be learning and studying from youth, as well as people older than me… Having degrees as a person of color in this country is the one thing that can't nobody take away from me. -Ruben Santiago-Hudson

If he's having a good day and running the right race, nobody can beat Frank Shorter at 10,000 meters… nobody except me. -Steve Prefontaine

What's odd is that nobody in my family is an artist. My cousins are, like, secretaries at law firms or nurses or just more blue collar. And I was in a baseball team. I used to be, like, a really big tomboy. -Melonie Diaz

Commercial books don't even get covered. The reason why so many book reviews go out of business is because they cover a lot of stuff that nobody cares about. Imagine if the movie pages covered none of the big movies and all they covered were movies that you couldn't even find in the theater? -James Patterson

As we go through this transition where a lot more people will be reading on devices, nobody is paying enough attention to make sure it's a smooth transition.

When I just started my career, of course, I always try to look very good, and I changes the dress all the time on the performance. And people came to me and said, 'Oh, beautiful dress.

I believe very strongly – and I never brought this up as a player – but I put up, I feel, Hall of Fame numbers with diabetes. If I didn't have diabetes – nobody realizes that, when I was diagnosed at 18, even the doctors didn't know what to do about diabetes. -Ron Santo

I did a lot of terrible TV shows and was really terrible in them, and I've done terrible films I was terrible in, but nobody really noticed. -George Clooney

If you think nobody cares about you, try missing a couple of payments. -Steven Wright

I've always had to conquer fear when I'm on stage. Basically, I was and still am a very shy person. It's absolutely in conflict with what I do. But once I deliver the first joke I'm okay. It's like I'm out there all by myself just delivering my lines to nobody in particular without ever trying to notice the audience in front of me. -Steven Wright

Me don't dip on nobody's side. Me don't dip on the black man's side, not the white man's side. Me dip on God's side, the one who create me and cause me to come from black and white. -Bob Marley

God sent me on earth. He send me to do something, and nobody can stop me. If God want to stop me, then I stop. Man never can. -Bob Marley
