I had always loved John Ford's pictures. And I came to love him, too, but I was frightened to death working for him. He used the shock treatment while directing me. -Ethel Waters

I don't like to read. The only things I read are gossip columns. If someone gives me a book, it had better have lots of pictures. -Ethel Merman

At 26 I felt myself a victim rather than a victor in the realm of pictures. -Gloria Swanson

I was the first celebrity in pictures to be marrying a titled European. -Gloria Swanson

The Sennett system of making pictures was actually fun. You never knew what the person next to you was going to do. -Gloria Swanson

Whoever wants to know something about me – as an artist which alone is significant – they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want. -Gustav Klimt

I don't think that I'm over his influence but they probably don't look like Picassos; Picasso himself would probably have thrown up looking at my pictures. -Roy Lichtenstein

As long as my pictures go into theaters and we ask people to pay to see what I do on the screen, I should not object if customers want to know what kind of man I am. -Alan Ladd

I couldn't take pictures of green rolling hills. -David Byrne

That's the thing about pictures: they seduce you. -David Byrne

Unfortunately, I'm not one of those people who take pictures, you know, carry a camera. Because if I did I'd have stack's and stack's and stack's of different act's. I got a lot here – I know what I done. -Edwin Starr

I paint German artists whom I admire. I paint their pictures, their work as painters, and their portraits too. But oddly enough, each of these portraits ends up as a picture of a woman with blonde hair. I myself have never been able to work out why this happens. -Georg Baselitz

I am interested in being in pictures that I would like to see. -Burt Lancaster

I enjoy doing my more intimate and less commercial pictures and also I enjoy directing. -Sarah Polley

It's never a good idea for a celebrity to sign autographs or take pictures if a crowd is gathering. -Chevy Chase

Abstract painting is abstract. It confronts you. There was a reviewer a while back who wrote that my pictures didn't have any beginning or any end. He didn't mean it as a compliment, but it was. -Jackson Pollock

It's also a more personal medium. It seems to go directly to one's brain. There are no pictures to distract. -Bob Edwards

The pictures are created by the listener, with a little help from the broadcaster. The pictures are perfect. If you're showing pictures, different things in that picture can distract from the spoken word. -Bob Edwards

Some writers and producers are currently writing a sitcom for me, so we'll see what happens there. I'm somewhat reluctant to talk about some of the upcoming projects that I'm working on; I've a lot of stuff on the go, including five pictures that I'm looking at producing. -Gil Gerard

There's a sadness to the human condition that I think music is good for. It gives a counterpoint to the visual beauty, and adds depth to pictures that they wouldn't have if the music wasn't there. -Mike Figgis

A love of books, of holding a book, turning its pages, looking at its pictures, and living its fascinating stories goes hand-in-hand with a love of learning. -Laura Bush

Calvin was very clever. We did the pictures and made the commercial, and that really worked. -Kate Moss

I realized what you could do in motion pictures by surrounding yourself with geniuses. -Richard Donner

In motion pictures, the actor rules. The camera served the actor. -Richard Donner

Years ago – in the 70s, for about a decade – I carried a camera every place I went. And I shot a lot of pictures that were still life and landscape, using available light. -Leonard Nimoy

My memory of those places is better than my pictures. That's why I get much more satisfaction out of shooting thematic work that has to do with an idea that I'm searching for, or searching to express. -Leonard Nimoy

But if you're talking about fine art work, then I think you have to ask yourself some pretty deep questions about why it is you want to take pictures and what it is you want to say. -Leonard Nimoy

The timing was terrible, and having one disaster after another didn't help. I think the pictures on television of the way in which the disaster was handled also helped to turn off the public and Congress. -Billy Tauzin

I remember traveling around in Arkansas with Senator Robinson, and I told him what this little trick was. He felt very much part of it and had me take pictures of people unbeknownst to them. -Ben Shahn

I confess that Roy was a little bit dictatorial in his editing and he ruined quite a number of my pictures, which he stopped doing later. He used to punch a hole through a negative. Some of them were incredibly valuable. He didn't understand at the time. -Ben Shahn

The pictures of my family were designed to be on a family wall, they were supposed to be together. It was supposed to copy my mother's wall in her house. -Annie Leibovitz

I shoot a little bit, maybe two rolls, medium format, which is 20 pictures, and if it's not working, I change the position. -Annie Leibovitz

Everyone keeps asking you for pictures, and after a while you get tired of that. I always say, They are in the archives. -Annie Leibovitz

What I am interested in now is the landscape. Pictures without people. I wouldn't be surprised if eventually there are no people in my pictures. It is so emotional. -Annie Leibovitz

What I learned from Lennon was something that did stay with me my whole career, which is to be very straightforward. I actually love talking about taking pictures, and I think that helps everyone. -Annie Leibovitz

One rainy Sunday when I was in the third grade, I picked up a book to look at the pictures and discovered that even though I did not want to, I was reading. I have been a reader ever since. -Beverly Cleary

If I was in love with someone, I would get their picture out of the school yearbook and do portraits. If I was curious about sex, I would draw pictures of it. There were no books for me to look at. Then I would go find my father's matches to burn the paper. -Lynn Johnston

The pictures are there, and you just take them. -Robert Capa

Anyone can use these sites – companies and colleges, teachers and students, young and old all make use of networking sites to connect with people electronically to share pictures, information, course work, and common interests. -Mike Fitzpatrick

I live alone, with cats, books, pictures, fresh vegetables to cook, the garden, the hens to feed. -Jeanette Winterson

Mourning Ruby is not a flat landscape: it is more like a box with pictures painted on every face. And each face is also a door which opens, I hope, to take the reader deep into the book. -Helen Dunmore

When I did that first movie, it was the introduction to all the set-up time and the waiting time that's endemic in motion pictures, and the repetition. -Harry Shearer

Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye… it also includes the inner pictures of the soul. -Edvard Munch

The wonderful thing about television is the immediate impact of pictures of current events. -Will McDonough

It was at the beginning of all this tabloid frenzy. Our garbage was being gone through, and we were involved in all these chases getting home, and people camping out on our property to get pictures. -Lauren Holly

It's been fascinating watching all those pictures of me with a lot more hair Jeremy, and looking very young. And we've all got things we've said, twenty, thirty years ago, indeed the whole world has changed since then. -Peter Hain

These small shows were decidedly a success. The exhibitions were not too large to be seen easily. It was not an effort, as larger collections of pictures usually are. -Childe Hassam

It was by design that we mostly used pictures that you could not necessarily see what was going on, and that didn't really focus in on the band, but instead focused in on a theme. -Mike McCready

My books were always full of ink blots, always stained and covered with smeared sketches and pictures, which one draws idly when his attention wanders from his task. -Pierre Loti

I never stopped making pictures. There were times when more of my income was coming from other sources, and I had to devote more time to television and movies and records. -Martin Mull

I think there are a lot of pictures to make. I sometimes question whether I'm even an artist or just a painter. To me, the making of the pictures is the most important thing. -Martin Mull

Some of the pictures I must say every now and then I just think are going to be funny. When it gets that much, you might as well just pull out all the stops and make it more of a burlesque. -Martin Mull

My vanity is not dead. I laugh when I see pictures of myself as I am now-maybe so I won't cry, but just because it is really funny how much I've changed. -Michael Zaslow

They were taking pictures and everything. When we got down off the plane, the minute Elvis made his appearance at the door of the plane, the screaming got even worse. -Minnie Pearl

I didn't hang any pictures in my office for a year because I thought that I would be jinxing myself and have to take them down the next day. -Rob Corddry

The art of motion pictures is pictorial and language comes a distant second. -Jean-Jacques Annaud

But, I would always be thinking of how pictures are constructed and colour, how to use it, I mean you're using it for constructing, makes you think about it, the place did as well. -David Hockney

Arles is certainly one of the most interesting towns I have ever seen, whether viewed as a place remarkable for the objects of antiquity it contains, or for the primitive manners of its inhabitants and its picturesque appearance. -Marguerite Gardiner

I have written a few children's books. The first book that I wrote was for children. It was called 'The Package', and it was a mystery story in pictures. It had no words. -Laurie Anderson

The language of excitement is at best picturesque merely. You must be calm before you can utter oracles. -Henry David Thoreau

Treat your friends as you do your pictures, and place them in their best light. -Lady Randolph Churchill

Women who marry early are often overly enamored of the kind of man who looks great in wedding pictures and passes the maid of honor his telephone number. -Anna Quindlen

Romance and novel paint beauty in colors more charming than nature, and describe a happiness that humans never taste. How deceptive and destructive are those pictures of consummate bliss! -Oliver Goldsmith

Poverty, to be picturesque, should be rural. Suburban misery is as hideous as it is pitiable. -Anthony Trollope

So when I looked at pictures and produced my calendar and edited the pictures, it wasn't just about looking at myself and thinking I'm attractive. I try to take myself out of it and get into the whole process of putting it all together. -Brooke Burke

The Chavez-Obama pictures will join a postmodern photo array that includes Donald Rumsfeld gifting Saddam Hussein with spurs from President Reagan. -Christine Pelosi

I get really restless when I haven't worked for a day and a half. I have a recurring dream that people are lined up next to my bed, waiting for autographs and taking pictures of me! -Taylor Swift

Here we have been sitting down for a brief moment and you are already asking me if there are pictures of me in my drawers. -Anthony Weiner

The press is just not your friend when it comes to a marriage. That's why we didn't sell the pictures of our wedding, and we got offered millions of dollars for them, millions. -Katy Perry

I feel I'm anonymous in my work. When I look at the pictures, I never see myself; they aren't self-portraits. Sometimes I disappear. -Cindy Sherman

If you look at old football pictures, the jerseys were hanging, the sleeves were dangling, but now everything is tucked and tailored. -Andre Benjamin

I think a lot of African-American kids don't have fathers to teach them how to dress, so you end up being taught by pictures in magazine and movies. You see cowboys, Indians, old Hollywood films, Cary Grant. It has an effect on you. -Andre Benjamin

I used to look back at pictures and cringe but actually I'm quite proud that I've had fun with fashion and don't always look perfect. The only regret I have is when I look at something I wore when I was very young and it obviously looks like it belonged to someone else. -Emma Watson

Even in the very beginning when she would bump into George Valentine and people would start taking pictures of her, she never thought, 'I'm with George Valentine. I need to get a picture with him.' She's like 'oh that's funny. Everyone's taking pictures!' -Berenice Bejo

I'm so lucky because I get to have all of these memories. I can have all of those pictures and different sorts of films and stuff. Some people have only one photo, and I'm really glad that I have all of that. -Bindi Irwin

That type of autograph, pictures and apparel thievery was not part of what I grew up with. I loved the artists and their music. I would be thrilled to meet them, but the thought of getting a scribble or stealing an article of clothing never occurred or appealed to me. -Davey Havok

It's so hard to raise money for independent films and the fact of the matter is that the bigger my star or whatever is, as a result of doing bigger pictures, the easier it is for me to get money for my own projects. -Edward Burns

The first couple of pictures I wrote and directed were dreadful, because I was dealing in worlds that were not familiar to me, and writing about fantasy. They were just not anything I was really connected to. -Emilio Estevez

My grandfather was a general in the Nationalist Chinese Air Force during World War II, and I grew up hearing the pilot stories and seeing pictures of him in uniform. -Eric Liu

It's very difficult when there are pictures taken on the red carpet. I find those things so terrifying that another persona just kicks in. I don't recognise myself. -Joely Richardson

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

Kids love to look at pictures of themselves. -Nancy O'Dell

Of course, I'd like to produce and direct a blockbuster, but you gotta build up to that. So now I'm learning from a bunch of little movies. And it's more fun with smaller pictures. It's more creative. -Lea Thompson

Look at pictures of me growing up. It wasn't always the way it is now. It was a bumpy road for me. -Chris Evans

I don't understand art-speak. My pictures are big doodles. I'm amazed what people come up with when they look at them. There's one of a figure with two heads that somebody thought must be a comment on the state of matrimony. None of it is a comment on anything. -Billy Connolly

I didn't look at any of the newspapers, I look at the pictures sometimes, but apart from that I don't read them. -Tom Daley

I was on Facebook. I'm not anymore, but my sister always sends pictures to a page. I'm sure you can find a Bradley Cooper there. -Bradley Cooper

On a shelf above my computer are five letters that spell out W-R-I-T-E. Just in case I forget why I'm there. I also have 'Wonder Woman' paraphernalia from when I wrote five issues of the comic, and pictures of my husband and kids. -Jodi Picoult

I collect art. I just recently bought two gorgeous photographs of Marilyn Monroe by international photographer Eve Arnold and I know it sounds horrible but when she dies all her pictures are going to be worth triple. But I won't tell you how much I got them for – let's just say it was a lot. -Mel B

I try not to be overly literal. When I'm writing songs, I write down a lot of words, and then I try to simplify it. I like to give people hints or words that make visual pictures for them. -Neko Case

I go on the Internet and look at old pictures of myself, because it is the best reminder of how far I have come and where I do not want to be. -Kelly Osbourne

I hate all the old pictures of me before 2010 – and they are always the first ones to come up. That's why I don't Google myself, man. -Big Sean

I have a fat head – I get freaked-out looking at pictures of me. -Rachael Ray

I had always been kind of obsessed with making a home of my own and was always drawing rooms that I wanted to live in, down to pictures on the wall and the faces that would be in the photographs, and how the couches would be situated. -Michelle Williams

When we got down to the Super Bowl in '85, against the Patriots, we're down there on the field checking things out. This helicopter flies overhead, probably taking pictures, and McMahon just moons it. He mooned the helicopter from the field. -William Perry

It's strange for my friends when they see me on TV and in magazines, because the person that they see doing interviews and pictures on the red carpet is not the person that they know. -Maria Sharapova

When I go outside of L.A., no matter where it is, really anywhere I go, people will be stopping me or taking pictures or whatever it is. And it's great. It's amazing. I'm just lucky. -Michael Welch

I always had a dream about trying to make a movie that had no dialogue in it, that was just music and pictures. I still haven't done it yet, but I tried to get close in the beginning. -Paul Thomas Anderson

But what's interesting is now – and not only in horror, but across the board – the studios basically only make B pictures with A budgets. That's the biggest difference. -John Landis

This camera works like photosynthesis. It is as if you were Xeroxing your own face. The pictures have such physicality: their surface is like fine leather, stained from chemicals. Each one has a body and is more than an image. -Julian Schnabel

I wanted to make pictures where you would not know who took them. I also bring the present into the past. -Julian Schnabel

If you look at all the pictures of women in magazines, everybody's got a forehead that looks like a billboard. Completely blank. -Amy Heckerling

One of the walls of my bedroom was a collage of about 15 years of baseball photos. I would cut out the baseball pictures from every issue and I had this huge montage of thousands of pictures. -Curt Schilling

I probably made a few pictures I shouldn't have done, but I have four sons and I have to pay the rent. If you have a decision to make about whether or not you can buy groceries at the market or whether or not you're going to make a bad movie, you're going to make a bad movie. -Michael Madsen

Writers used to make such wonderful pictures without all that swearing, all that cursing. And now it seems that you can't say three words without cursing. And I don't think that's right. -Ernest Borgnine

If somebody's looking at pictures of naked people and you go, 'Oh I don't want to see that,' you're lying. Cause naked people are always interesting. Always. Whether they're beautiful, or naked or 500 pounds. -Andy Richter

When I look at pictures when I was younger, I do the quintessential cringe. -Rachel Roy

You know, I put my little brother in the movies and he's still in the pictures. My mother makes me put him in the pictures. -Sam Raimi

A close friend of mine, Annie Leibovitz, who I've known for forty years, photographs celebrities every single day of the week but they all seem to look the same even though she's one of the most creative photographers alive. They all just look the same. Brad Pitt is a great actor but all the pictures of Brad Pitt look the same. -Lawrence Schiller

I just make the pictures and where they fall is where they fall. If somebody likes them, that's always nice. And if they don't like them, then too bad. -Clint Eastwood

The great thing about being a print journalist is that you are permitted to duck. Cameramen get killed while the writers are flat on the floor. A war correspondent for the BBC dedicated his memoir to 50 fallen colleagues, and I guarantee you they were all taking pictures. I am only alive because I am such a chicken. -P. J. O'Rourke

I love all of the arts. I love motion pictures. I love stage. I love theater. -Ray Bradbury

I don't even like to go out onto the streets sometimes because I can't get anything done. People want pictures and autographs all the time. -Usain Bolt

I've been painting and drawing and taking pictures as long as I've been writing music – and I've actually been drawing longer than I've been writing music. -Brandon Boyd

I'm somewhat overwhelmed by the microblogging that takes place in China, and the smartphones and all the people that want to take pictures of myself and my family. -Gary Locke

As a boy, I used to look upon the hieroglyphics as so many wonderful pictures. -Cecil B. DeMille

I like having the digital camera on my smart phone, but I also like having a dedicated camera for when I want to take real pictures. -Jeff Bezos

One of the most important things about the geology on the moon is your descriptions of what you see, comparing them to things that you've seen on Earth so that the geologists and the scientists on the ground would know what you're talking about; and then take pictures of them. -Gene Cernan

Language for me narrates the pictures in my mind. When I work on designing livestock equipment I can test run that equipment in my head like 3-D virtual reality. In fact, when I was in college I used to think that everybody was able to do that. -Temple Grandin

I'm a visual thinker, really bad at algebra. There's others that are a pattern thinker. These are the music and math minds. They think in patterns instead of pictures. Then there's another type that's not a visual thinker at all, and they're the ones that memorize all of the sports statistics, all of the weather statistics. -Temple Grandin

Los Angeles is such a town of show business, and I'm a terrible celebrity. I find it difficult – it's the beast that must be fed. There's this big wheel of pictures and articles that goes around, and you get pinned on it. -Julia Roberts

I collect old portraits. They're all just interesting pictures of people, and you just kind of wonder who they were and what they were. There's a guy – I don't know who he is, but he's wearing a suit. He's got his arms folded, and he looks like he sold insurance or something. I'm just wondering why someone painted him. -Ellen DeGeneres

Whenever I look at pictures of horrific things that soldiers do or that have been done to soldiers I always feel sorry for everybody involved because politics throws them into these horrific situations where really it's just 18-year-old kids. -Gideon Raff

I really am pretty boring. There's no reason to take pictures of me. -Kat Dennings

When I was a ten-year old bookworm and used to kiss the dust jacket pictures of authors as if they were icons, it used to amaze me that these remote people could provoke me to love. -Erica Jong

I like the gritty parts of fashion, the design, the studio, the pictures. -Vera Wang

I just have friends that don't sell their pictures to newspapers. -Heather Mills

I always wanted to make motion pictures, ever since I was a wee boy, and I was 32, and time was marching on. I met a guy who said, 'Come out to Hollywood for 10 days, and I'll get you a deal.' So I figured, 'OK, 10 days.' On the 10th day, he got me a development deal with Disney, not for a lot of money, but it allowed me to make the move. -Craig Ferguson

It's odd, because I used to see pictures, on telly or wherever, of what I now know to be Shaftesbury Avenue and I used to wonder what that amazing street with all the lights was. Well, now I know. I think when you get a wee taste of something, it maybe isn't what you thought it was. -Shirley Henderson

I get to go to all these beautiful places, so it's nice being able to take pictures of it. -Vanessa Hudgens

As a kid, during the school year, my head was often buried in a textbook or Judy Blume book; the words and pictures were the perfect, barrier-free environment for me. -Marlee Matlin

If you're a basketball player and you don't stop and take pictures with your fans, you can have an amazing game and everyone still loves you. -Kim Kardashian

I sometimes like the pictures photographers take of me. -Sidney Poitier

If I take pictures at a party, I never get bored. -Jean Pigozzi

People don't really understand, but having people stare, and point, and take pictures, even if it is in a positive framework, is quite isolating; there's no two ways about it. You feel a little bit, you know, freakish. -Emma Watson

I don't hate myself anymore. I used to hate my work, hated that sexy image, hated those pictures of me onstage, hated that big raunchy person. Onstage, I'm acting the whole time I'm there. As soon as I get out of those songs, I'm Tina again. -Tina Turner

When we talk about how movies used to be made, it was over 100 years of film, literal, physical film, with emulsion, that we would expose to light and we would get pictures. -Keanu Reeves

Well, in brief, I was discovered by a lady called Beth Boldt. She had also been a model. She used to take pictures of the girls she found, and she took a picture of me one day in my school uniform, and it all kind of started from there. -Naomi Campbell

When I was in high school, I had binders with pictures of tour buses. -Hunter Hayes

Now, what does an actor who can't talk do? Wait for silent pictures to come back? -Kirk Douglas

Just because you see pictures of glaciers falling into the ocean doesn't mean anything bad is happening. This is something that happens all the time. It's part of the natural cycle of things. We know from measurements that glaciers have been melting for 200 years at least. -Freeman Dyson

When I came out publicly, some photo editors had a field day searching for pictures of me with a limp wrist or some other stereotypical gay signifier – as though, after decades in the public eye, they'd suddenly come across a trove of shots where I looked like a Cher impersonator. -James McGreevey

As an actor you want people to know you and there are times you want your pictures taken, but it's unnerving to walk out of a venue with friends and there are 20 people flashing lights in your face. Do you know how bright those lights are? -Ashley Greene

When I look back at those pictures of my mother performing – and listen to her recordings – it makes me sad to think that all of that joy she found in her work came to an end. I wish she hadn't had to make that sacrifice, even if it was for the benefit of my father and siblings and me. -Marlo Thomas

I use every single thing that Alfred Hitchcock taught me in my acting career… I am very grateful for the education he gave me in making motion pictures. -Tippi Hedren

I'm interested in all kinds of pictures, however they are made, with cameras, with paint brushes, with computers, with anything. -David Hockney

I go and see anything that's visually new, any technology that's about picture-making. The technology won't make the pictures different, but someone using it will. -David Hockney

What switched me to films was the flood of American pictures into Paris after the Liberation. -Francois Truffaut

The fall of the Berlin Wall makes for nice pictures. But it all started in the shipyards. -Lech Walesa

I think when you're young and have that first burst of energy and make five or six pictures in a row that tell the stories of all the things in life you want to say… well, maybe those are the films that should have won me the Oscar. -Martin Scorsese

You don't make pictures for Oscars. -Martin Scorsese

I think a few pictures at a time. -Vin Diesel

I breeze through Twitter – I look at the mentions, the pictures, the videos. -Adam Lambert

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

I've always tried to do pictures that don't date. -David Bailey

I didn't try and do fashion pictures. I tried to do portraits of girls wearing dresses. -David Bailey

I went around the corner to motion pictures. -Jerry Reed

I would absolutely, definitely never sell my wedding pictures to a magazine. I'd like it to be a special day, not a photo shoot. And once you've done that, your marriage becomes everybody else's business. -Katherine Jenkins

I think all the stuff that happens before the pictures are taken is much more exciting. -Georgia May Jagger

The fact is I'm not making a film in order to draw pictures or make images about Iran. -Asghar Farhadi

My pictures are airbrushed. -Cindy Margolis

I know I play into that image out there, but I try to say it is a fantasy. I look at my own pictures and wish I could look like that. There are probably five people in this whole entire world who actually look like that. -Cindy Margolis

My style of songwriting is influenced by cinema. I'm a frustrated filmmaker. A fan once said to me, 'Girl, you make me see pictures in my head!' and I took that as a great compliment. That's exactly my intention. -Joni Mitchell

Hollywood is portrayed in this super glamorous way, but when I see pictures of actresses going off the rails, it doesn't surprise me at all. -Minnie Driver

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

I still love taking pictures with Polaroid film. For me, it offers the most beautiful way of capturing reality and transferring it onto a flat piece of paper. -Helena Christensen

I've looked at pictures that my mom has of me, from when I was four years old at the turntable. I'm there, reaching up to play the records. I feel like I was bred to do what I do. I've been into music, and listening to music and critiquing it, my whole life. -Dr. Dre

I have pictures of me sitting in the racquetball court in my pajamas with an acoustic guitar, and Wolfgang is probably just two-and-a-half-feet tall. I'll never forget the day I saw his foot tapping along in beat! I knew then, I couldn't wait for the day I'd be able to make music with my son. I don't know what more I could ask for. -Eddie Van Halen

I was a complete unknown when I did 'Karate Kid.' I'd just done a pilot for a TV show called 'Call to Glory.' And I sat down with John Avildsen and brought still pictures from the show. I brought pictures! At that point, I would've been happy to be in a dog-food commercial. -Elisabeth Shue

It is more raw and unfettered and I'm more likely going into something you could call extreme cartooning. There's a lot of that in the course of 'Holy Terror.' There are interludes where there are pictures – cartoon pictures – of modern figures and they are all wordless. It's up to readers to put the words in. -Frank Miller

What's happened with computer technology is perfectly timed for someone with my set of skills. I tell stories with pictures. What I love about CGI is that if I can think it, it can be put on the screen. -Frank Miller

One of the reasons that I do a lot of different kinds of pictures is because I learn a lot when I'm doing them. -Jennifer Jason Leigh

Wanting to be understood by an audience that didn't know Russian, I tried to paint musical pictures by emphasizing the phrasing, using voice color more boldly, and varying the shade and nuance. -Galina Vishnevskaya

Stamps from Afghanistan are hilarious. You can tell when the revolutions are because suddenly they stop having pictures of the mullahs and the independence monument and they start having fish on them. -Samuel West

I'm in the middle of my own 'Project Runway' challenge given to me by my daughter's preschool. All the parents have to make an outfit for their kids, for school pictures, made entirely out of recycled objects. I can not believe I have homework. -Busy Philipps

Look, at the same time that I don't want to be a celebrity, I understand that when you make movies you put yourself out in the public eye. I'd be a baby and a fool to be like, 'Why are there cameras taking pictures of me?' when I'm on a billboard for a movie. I think that's a very absurd concept. -Jonah Hill

I've worked with the Los Angeles Zoo for 45 years, and we have this magnificent photographer, Tad Motoyama. He takes these wonderful, wonderful animal pictures. All through the years he's given me copies of these pictures. Well, I have all these gorgeous ones, so I said, 'Tad, I want to do a book with your picture on one side.' -Betty White

If people are taking pictures of me at Starbucks, it's not the end of the world. It's cool, it's fun, it's exciting. -Cory Monteith

I always get forwarded these weird pictures of people getting Kenny Powers tattoos. That's probably the craziest thing I've ever seen: Somebody will ink my face on their body for eternity. -Danny McBride

MySpace is like a bar, Facebook is like the BBQ you have in your back yard with friends and family, play games, share pictures. Facebook is much better for sharing than MySpace. LinkedIn is the office, how you stay up to date, solve professional problems. -Reid Hoffman

Painters aren't expected to paint bleak pictures, are they? -Alexander McCall Smith

If the chemistry is right between star and photographer and the geometry of the pictures pleases the star, often the two people end up with a long-term professional friendship during which they continue to work together and to produce highly personal images. -Eve Arnold

Recording sessions were stimulating to photograph, because everything was in motion: the subject, the musicians, the technicians and the photographer. You needed fast reflexes to keep up with moving targets, and sensitivity and skill to get the pictures while keeping out of the performers' eyeline so as not to break their concentration. -Eve Arnold

Wolfgang Tillman's stunning large-scale pictures, being shown for the first time, were so offhand I failed to see them as art. -Jerry Saltz

A saboteur in the house of art and a comedienne in the house of art theory, Lawler has spent three decades documenting the secret life of art. Functioning as a kind of one-woman CSI unit, she has photographed pictures and objects in collectors' homes, in galleries, on the walls of auction houses, and off the walls, in museum storage. -Jerry Saltz

I feel like I'm part of a generation of people who are stuck in the past and are really self-absorbed. I mean, we're actually taking pictures of ourselves and posting them on Facebook, and keeping in touch with people that should have been out of our lives 15 years ago. -Diablo Cody

My son is really good at being on trips with me. He understands what's going on. He grew up with me modeling, so it's quite normal for him to be on a shoot and in pictures because he sees me doing it. -Arizona Muse

You earn very little money on independent films and I'm the provider for my home, so I do have to think of taking one for the accountant time and again and that means studio pictures. -Vera Farmiga

So I think I'll say the obvious thing: theater is ephemeral. When a production is done, it's gone forever. You can take pictures of it. You can make a film of it. But it's not the production. It's not the same thing. -Tony Kushner

I have an unusual hobby: I collect pictures of people I don't know. It started when I was a kid growing up in South Florida, the land of junk stores, garage sales, and flea markets, as a kind of coping mechanism. -Ransom Riggs

The fans are always at the hotel waiting, they like to get pictures and autographs. I enjoy it all, the displays of love and support at the hotel and the shows. -Flo Rida

I hate it when people come up to me on trains and ask 'Are you Soulja Boy?' If people want pictures or autographs, that's cool, but I don't like the dumb questions. -Soulja Boy

To me I'm just a regular person going to the mall with friends, and now I'm in Forever 21 and I see this random group of girls staring at me and taking pictures. But now I usually have my dad, who is a really tall and intimidating person with me, so he's kind of my bodyguard. -Rebecca Black

You know, I just tend to grow my beard out for 'Parks and Rec.' As an actor it's always easier to shave or cut your hair for a role, but it's hard to put fake hair on or grow hair for a role. When you look at pictures of me, the longer my hair is, the longer my facial hair is, that's just the longer I haven't gotten a job. -Chris Pratt

The action pictures I've been typically involved with, when somebody gets punched, you really feel the punching, and when somebody gets shot, you really feel the shot. -Lorenzo di Bonaventura

I just spend my life studying the manufacture of sound and picture and my education, if you like, has come from what I've chosen to make sounds and pictures on. -Tony Kaye

I've come up through art school, through painting, through graphic design, through advertising, through TV commercials and music video. I've designed books, built billboards, matchbooks, corporate identities. I continuously paint, I've done conceptual art pictures. -Tony Kaye

I think film writing, you're thinking in pictures, and stage writing, you're thinking in dialogue. In film writing, it's also, you only get so many words, so everything has to earn its place in a really economical way. I think for stage writing, you have more leeway. -Zoe Kazan

I read a lot of plays as a kid, but I didn't see that many plays, so I feel better-versed in film history and film structure. I just think it's easier to think in pictures. -Zoe Kazan

I love a natural look in pictures. -Marilyn Monroe

For me, Twitter works best as a way of taking pictures of being stuck in traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge. If people really want to read really funny quips about life, parenting, and pop culture, then by all means read Michael Ian Black's tweets. -Michael Showalter

Where I came from, the idea of going into show business was just ridiculous; in fact I didn't tell anybody because I knew people would laugh at me. So I sort of snuck around and got some pictures and got a resume together and, of course, lied and said I did all kinds of things I didn't do. -Michelle Pfeiffer

I was fascinated by my own prom pictures. -Mary Ellen Mark

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

There are some people who become best friends with everyone they photograph. There are people that I really like and admire and respect, but in a way I think it's better to keep a distance. I think you get better pictures of people that you don't know very well. -Mary Ellen Mark

I was so beautiful but I didn't realise it for years. I saw pictures of myself and even I was stunned. -Britt Ekland

I always feel kind of awkward when I look at pictures of myself. Watching videos of myself is really uncomfortable. -Max Irons

I don't like my thighs, the back of my legs or my chubby knees. I wear clothes that show off my legs in pictures and videos but not often when I'm appearing live. -Nicole Scherzinger

There's a good many pictures I'd like to make; we'll see how many I'll be allowed to make. -Terrence Malick

Some people take pictures; I write songs. -Lee DeWyze

I'm interested in painting the most beautifully compelling pictures and images and metaphors and stories and explanations possible that will put Jesus in language for a world that desperately needs to hear it. -Rob Bell

I'm a storyteller. I love to tell stories about brands. I love to tell stories, period. I like painting pictures through the words, and that's what I do. -Gary Vaynerchuk

I love the pictures of Old Hollywood, seeing the directors dressed in suits and ties. Even the grips would be wearing ties. But the biggest thing is when I was a kid, I couldn't wait to be an adult, and I think what happens with most guys is that no one wants to be an adult anymore. So they're dressing like kids. -Paul Feig

I don't picture myself as a normal person when I play football, and I don't think anyone else pictures me that way as well. -Robert Griffin III

I had this grand idea that Elvira's kind of the Santa Claus of Halloween – at the malls, you'd have an Elvira there. Girls would dress as Elvira just like guys dress as Santa Claus, and it's not the real thing, but they'll pose for pictures, sign autographs. Of course, I couldn't go around to every mall, so we'd have to get more Elviras. -Cassandra Peterson

You don't paint pictures to put them in your attic. You want people to look at them. -Joe Dante

Repetitiveness is one of the things that's most difficult to get away from in genre pictures, because people come specifically to see certain kinds of things but get disappointed if they're presented in the same way. So to try to find a new way to show old stuff is always the challenge. -Joe Dante

I don't believe that you can judge the worth of a movie in the atmosphere in which it comes out the first time. There's just so many reasons why some pictures don't catch on. -Joe Dante

Well, once I did 'Grease,' everyone was offering me studio pictures in a similar vein – you know, popcorn movie. -Randal Kleiser

Everyone knows now how early a fetus becomes a baby. Women who have been pregnant have seen their babies on ultrasounds. They know that there is a terrible truth to those horrific pictures the anti-choice fanatics hold up in front of abortion clinics. -Ayelet Waldman

You can go to the pictures or read a book, but football constantly comes back into your mind. It's not a job, it's a life. It takes up your time, thoughts and energy and it can damage relationships with those around you. -Howard Wilkinson

I have two different categories of favorite films. One is the emotional favorites, which means these are generally films that I saw when I was a kid; anything you see in your formative years is more powerful, because it really stays with you forever. The second category is films that I saw while I was learning the craft of motion pictures. -John Carpenter

I'm an amateur photographer, apart from being a professional one, and I think maybe my amateur pictures are the better ones. -Elliott Erwitt

Making books is a very specific kind of activity. It's not really a collection of your best pictures – although it is – but it's also a way of presenting your work so that it's not repetitive, so that it flows, and so that it makes sense in a book. -Elliott Erwitt

Photography is pretty simple stuff. You just react to what you see, and take many, many pictures. -Elliott Erwitt

The ratio of successful shots is one in God-knows-how-many. Sometimes you'll get several in one contact sheet, and sometimes it's none for days. But as long as you go on taking pictures, you're likely to get a good one at some point. -Elliott Erwitt

In those simpler days, you could just take pictures of movie stars and show them the way they were, as normal human beings. And if I felt part of any movement at the time, it was just to do that – to be journalistic and photograph what is, rather than what is made up. -Elliott Erwitt

Professionally I've evolved with what's required, but the pictures I do for pleasure haven't changed, except for the cars in the background, the clothing. I haven't changed at all. -Elliott Erwitt

The advantage of taking pictures of the famous is that they get published. -Elliott Erwitt

The thing is that when you don't carry a camera, that's when you see pictures in particular, or at least that's when you think you see pictures in particular. When you do carry it, if you do see one on the occasion that you do, you can take it. -Elliott Erwitt

Everybody's got to do something… I'd been on my own since an early age and I thought I better find something to do to buy biscuits and stuff. From high school onwards I was earning my way with photography, one way or another, working in darkrooms and taking pictures of weddings, neighbors' children and so on. -Elliott Erwitt

You know, my dad wasn't a photographer or filmmaker by profession, but on Sundays, he would take pictures of me and my family or his pals horseback riding, and it was a means of communication and affection, a means of not being so dysfunctional with each other. -Bruce Weber

Being able to do lead roles in pictures or onstage or whatever it is that you're doing in acting is obviously what you strive for because you want to better yourself as an actor and you want to better yourself as a person as well. But that does come with a lot of responsibility and a great deal of weight. -Jamie Campbell Bower

I get such lovely gifts from fans… amazing pictures, handmade jewellery. I'm very lucky! -Leona Lewis

When I do appearances and stuff and I just wanna see the new pictures, I Google myself. -Teyana Taylor

I think there's a perception out there that people know me based on these glamorous photos they see of me in magazines, but I have about two hours of hair and makeup and then people to dress me, to make me look even better, in those pictures. -Victoria Justice

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

Credit or debit cards, for starters, are nothing short of shoppers' Novocain. Even in the age of digital purchases and virtual money, we still attach a special value to dirty paper with pictures of presidents on it. Handing some of that to a cashier simply hurts more than handing over a little sliver of plastic. -Jeffrey Kluger

I love taking pictures of food. -Miranda Kerr

I don't think in words; I think in pictures, in images. -Lance Henriksen

My fans are called 'Mayniacs'. They enjoy screaming and chasing me and taking pictures. -Conor Maynard

Fantasy isn't something I put into the pictures; I don't try and inject them with a sense of play. But it's about being an honest photographer; a photograph is as much of a mirror of the photographer as it is the subject. -Tim Walker

Even the pictures I was doing at college – a little narrative based on a butterfly catcher, or a chimney sweep – the images were always telling stories. They were all scenarios and moods which I storyboarded and worked through – it's exactly what I do now. -Tim Walker

Looking back at my earlier pictures, I think that the work is very much coming from the same place. I have gone through a period of challenging myself with a complicated idea to currently challenging myself with the idea of simplicity. -Tim Walker

If I go to an awards ceremony, I wear a suit, of course I do. I am proud to be there. If there are young kids looking at pictures of me, I want them to feel that they should long for the opportunity to go somewhere really smart and wear a beautiful suit, rather than to reject that. -Tinie Tempah

I'm always showing pictures off. I have to be careful who I show them to because of who I am, obviously, but I'm a proud father. -Josh Turner

I was so besotted with '8½' that, when it was on TV, I used to take pictures with my 35-mm. camera of the frames of the film. That was the first time I'd ever really seen Italians on screen. -David Chase

I learned to be a hot-air balloon pilot to take tourists over the Masai Mara Reserve in order to earn some money and finance the work I was doing with my wife, Anne. We were studying the life of a family of lions for more than two years. Taking pictures was a way to capture information we could not put in words. -Yann Arthus-Bertrand

I always take hundreds and hundreds of pictures. I used to work for 'National Geographic,' and they gave us a lot of film. -Yann Arthus-Bertrand

I'm not an expert when it comes to technology, but what changed things for me was autofocus. I used to have to throw away half my pictures because it was so difficult to get the focus right. -Yann Arthus-Bertrand

After Sandy hit, my wife and I saw pictures of the devastation following the hurricane in the news. We immediately wanted to find a way to assist those in need. -Tyson Chandler

I really enjoy the iPad because you can multi-task: I can watch a movie, read, look at pictures that I shot – because I'm into photography. It serves a lot of purposes for me. -Tyson Chandler

It's cool when people know you more, but I like people to treat me regular when they see me. I take pictures. I don't really be big on people looking at me. -Meek Mill

What gets posted online is not short term, and is open for easy misinterpretation. Messages and pictures spread faster through the Internet than they ever could by word of mouth. -Anna Maria Chavez

I'm the sort of person who takes a camera to dinner or a nightclub because I enjoy taking pictures of people. I tweet all my pictures, which is bad. -Tamara Ecclestone

A particular piece of music attaches itself to the piece I'm writing, and there is nothing else I can listen to. Every day I return to the same space to write, the music providing both the walls and the pictures on the walls. -Aleksandar Hemon

I've been taking art lessons since I was little, and I've always drawn. I think in pictures. -Brian Selznick

I've always loved the wild rumpus in 'Where the Wild Things Are' by Maurice Sendak, because the words disappear, the pictures take up the whole page, and we move forward in the story by turning the pages. -Brian Selznick

What I find problematic is the suggestion that when, say, Madonna adopts an African child, she is saving Africa. It's not that simple. You have to do more than go there and adopt a child or show us pictures of children with flies in their eyes. That simplifies Africa. -Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I want the pictures to be working in both directions. I accept that they speak about me, and yet at the same time, I want and expect them to function in terms of the viewer and their experience. -Wolfgang Tillmans

It's still amazing to me to walk down the halls of 'SNL.' You see pictures of the greatest comedians we grew up worshiping, basically. It's crazy to be able to still work there. -Jorma Taccone

When I was little, I wanted to be a doctor. I was really interested in gore. My grandfather was an orthopedic surgeon and he had a lot of books in his library that I would just pore over. A lot of them had really horrible pictures of deformities. -Jennifer Egan

When I started in movies, they said I'd be this big star, but I was only a moderate one. Not enough good pictures. It's important to be in a good piece of work no matter the size of one's own part. -Suzanne Pleshette

When people in Vancouver do recognize me, they hide it. I went to a store near my home and I know they're 'Battlestar' fans – they have pictures on the wall! – and I know they know me, but everyone was so smooth and pretended I wasn't there. Most people don't realize how good they are at acting in everyday life. -Grace Park

For Christmas I do gift bags for my friends and the cast, and I put 'treat yo self' key chains in there. And people send me pictures of 'treat yo self' all the time. -Retta

I always say I make pictures rather than take pictures. -Terry Richardson

When people visit me at autograph conventions and signings, they always say, 'You just don't know how you scared me!' These people are grown up. They say, 'When I was a kid, I just couldn't sleep at night.' Sometimes they will have babies with them. And they give me their babies, and they take pictures of me holding their baby. -Betsy Palmer

I look back at my elementary or high school pictures and I always had gel in my hair and a gold chain that I would wear outside my shirt. That's how I was born and raised as an Italian male, and I always considered myself a Guido, anyway. -Pauly D

The Academy Awards were basically created by the industry to promote pictures. They weren't really to acknowledge the performances. Then it became sort of this a great popularity contest and now, it's an incredible show and it's seen all over the world. -James Cromwell

Like lots of baby boomers, I was brought up on archaic anthropomorphism. Upstanding Christian dogs. Rabbits with family values. Because the ancient texts and pictures were sacred – Potter, Milne and the rest. Even concerned parents who knew Freud and Jung never saw the contradictions in feeding us on them. -Peter York

The photographs of space taken by our astronauts have been published all over the place. But the eye is a much more dynamic mechanism than any camera or pictures. It's a more exciting view in person than looking at the photographs. Of course, I personally am sick and tired of hearing people talk like that: I want to see it myself! -Burt Rutan

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

You've gotta take care of the body you've got. You've got to be fit. You've got to be active. You've got to be healthy. We don't need to be pictures in a magazine. -Michael Cudlitz

Predating the Internet and predating videos, you had an active imagination. You would hear sounds and then get mental pictures of what these sounds felt like to you. It engaged you and made you more invested in it. It made you want to get tickets to the show, buy the album, put the poster on the wall. Now it's sensory overload. -Q-Tip

I used to work at NASA in Virginia. It was nothing glamorous; I was just tasked with making code compile for obscure projects, and I wasn't very good at it. Now I spend most of my time drawing pictures and looking at funny things on the Internet, which in retrospect is largely what I did at my old job, too. -Randall Munroe

It's tempting to just write a comic called 'Everyone Mail Randall Munroe Twenty Bucks' – maybe it would work, and I could just close down the 'xkcd' store and sit on a beach and draw pictures and make snarky Reddit posts for the rest of my life. -Randall Munroe

I have long believed that celebrity, the way we worship and package and sell our pop stars, is what filled the need for gods that was once filled by the pictures in stained glass. Hollywood is post-Christian Venice – in other words, a pantheon of saints without the hassle and heartache of religion. -Rich Cohen

Gen Y is really quite distinct from Gen X; it's really self-involved and very narcissistic – their cameras are filled with pictures of themselves; Facebook, it's about me. It's a generation that's been pampered by their parents and their schools, given prizes for just taking part. -Marcus Buckingham

With my pictures, what I hope is that it encourages the reader to imagine more pictures of his own. -Quentin Blake

I don't regret any past. I am not there. I am not sorry not to make pictures, because I know one day I will do it. I intend to live 150 years. -Alejandro Jodorowsky

I don't see myself as a moviemaker only, you know? When I can do a picture, I do. But I don't work like a business, in pictures. I am not obliged to make one picture after the other in order to live. -Alejandro Jodorowsky

Wherever I go, I'm watching. Even on vacation, when I'm in an airport or a railroad station, I look around, snap pictures, and find out how people do things. -Richard Scarry

When the simple word processors came in, writing became crisper, less dense – just because of the way we could instantly edit on the screen. Now the ability to mash up words and pictures and links and songs and tweets is what matters. I can't imagine what writing will be like in 2154. -Gail Collins

We spend our spare time taking care of little things. I can watch a little bit of college and professional football if I want to… Our favorite pastime is trying to take pictures of our hometowns from space. -Kevin A. Ford

I grew up thinking art was pictures until I got into music and found I was an artist and didn't paint. -Chuck Berry

When you read a book, the neurons in your brain fire overtime, deciding what the characters are wearing, how they're standing, and what it feels like the first time they kiss. No one shows you. The words make suggestions. Your brain paints the pictures. -Meg Rosoff

How many pictures have you torn up because you hate them? What ends up in your scrapbook? The pictures where you look like a good guy and a good family man, and the children look adorable – and they're screaming the next minute. I've never seen a family album of screaming people. -Richard Avedon

I see pictures of myself and I always knew that what I was feeling didn't look like that guy in the pictures. -Richard Avedon

The present moment is changing so fast that we often do not notice its existence at all. Every moment of mind is like a series of pictures passing through a projector. Some of the pictures come from sense impressions. Others come from memories of past experiences or from fantasies of the future. -Henepola Gunaratana

I'm making the art for me first. I'm making it because these are the pictures I want to see. I'm making pictures that don't yet exist. -Ryan McGinley

I was always one of those people who would watch the Super Bowl as much for the sports as I did for the ads. I was always just sort of fascinated by the fact that when you turn on the TV, there was motion, there was moving pictures on it. -Andrew Ross Sorkin

I live intimately with my characters before starting a book. I cut out pictures of them for my wall. I do time lines for each major character and a time line for the entire novel: What is going on in the world as my characters struggle with their problems? -Walter Dean Myers

I'm just a tiny person from a humdrum neighbourhood, so I grew up worshipping 'Bond' pictures and dreaming of a life bigger than my own. -McG

Film is mostly a visual medium, and so the director has much more control in terms of painting pictures and painting a performance. For theater, the director does everything he can and then says, 'Out you go,' and the actors are in charge of that stage every night. -David Lindsay-Abaire

I dress like a boy most of the time because I like what's comfortable, so sometimes when I have to wear dresses and makeup, it's kind of comedic. I take lots of pictures on my cell phone: 'Look, I'm dressed like a girl! Surprise!' -Analeigh Tipton

I believe destiny and hard work go hand in hand. I was studying to be an engineer when my mom and my brother sent my pictures for the Miss India contest. I didn't even know about it. If that isn't destiny, what is? -Priyanka Chopra

I never want people to be repulsed with my pictures; I always want to attract people. -David LaChapelle

If I'm feeling outraged, grief, disbelief, frustration, sympathy, that gets channeled through me and into my pictures and hopefully transmitted to the viewer. -James Nachtwey

You have to be 100 percent comfortable with yourself and who you are. You'll have unflattering pictures posted on the Internet for all to see, so you have to be able to handle yourself and stay true to yourself. -Katherine Webb

I think it tends to be overused and can be a little bit gimmicky. A lot of people are using 3-D now because they feel have they have to… that will come and go and the pictures that deserve to be in 3-D will continue to be. When it's done bad, it can make you carsick. -Joe Johnston

We had many books and pictures… my parents' way of life doubtless left a lasting impression on me. They created an atmosphere in which a certain kind of freedom could exist. This may well account for my seeking a related sense of liberty as I grew up. -Alfred Stieglitz

You'll reach into your wallet to brandish a photograph of a new puppy, and a friend will say, 'Oh, no – not pictures.' -Caroline Knapp

Hollywood, what a place it is! It is so far away from the rest of the world, so narrow. No one thinks of anything but motion pictures or talks of anything else. -Dolores del Rio

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

I don't make deals, I make pictures. -Carlo Ponti

At an early age I discovered the beauty in pictures in 'Vogue' magazine and Ebony magazine, and I would read 'The New York Times.' I had to make my own world within my world because I was an only child. -Andre Leon Talley

Some say that sudden knowledge of mystical matters is accomplished only in complete quietude, or that Creator, in one of God's many forms, appears only in orderly ways that are beauteous and picturesque, or that the mystical appears only in completely silent ways. All are true. Except for the 'only' part. -Clarissa Pinkola Estes

I'm an incurable romantic, and Casablanca's one of the most romantic pictures I've ever seen – the combination of Bogart and Bergman is just magical. -Ken Adam

The thing about living in Los Angeles and doing a lot of movies is that you get to go to a lot of premieres, and, regardless of whether or not you're a celebrity, you still get to walk down the red carpet and then have everyone sort of screaming your name. The pictures never get printed anywhere, but they are nonetheless taking your picture. -Missi Pyle

I feel super lucky to be living in New York. I love the city, I love the energy. I always loved it. I had pictures of New York in my bedroom when I was young. -Olivier Theyskens

I'm putting my consciousness towards trying to teach people through pictures and sculptures that there's something better in the world. That's what the world needs more of. -Peter M. Brant

I like to make colored xeroxes of things. I clip out pictures of Liza Minelli and her husband from magazines and I fax them to people anonymously. -Zooey Deschanel

My father and Mary Pickford were the reigning stars of not just Hollywood but of the world. Well, to bear my father's name was hard enough, but to work in pictures to boot was pretty foolhardy. In fact, my father was totally against it. He thought I should be off getting a good education and go into some safe profession. -Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.

After 87 pictures in 47 years, I knew when to quit. -Joel McCrea

Castle Rock and New Line each have their strengths, but the great thing about New Line is that they are a real focused-market, niche-market player who understand franchises. They probably understand the franchise business in motion pictures better than anyone else out there. -Fred Seibert

I've tried plenty of telephones. I tried to get into the Samsung Galaxy and the Blackberry, but the iPhone is just too easy to use. The camera takes clear pictures and the phone itself looks great. Like all Apple products, it kind of just makes sense. -Avicii

Television isn't inherently good or bad. You go to a bookstore, there are how many thousands of books, but how many of those do you want? Five? Television's the same way. If you're going to show people stuff, television is the way to go. Words and pictures show things. -Bill Nye

The artist is an interpreter of Nature. People learn to love Nature through pictures. To the artist, nothing is in vain; nothing beneath his notice. If he is great enough, he will exalt every subject which he treats. -William Morris Hunt

One difference between film noir and more straightforward crime pictures is that noir is more open to human flaws and likes to embed them in twisty plot lines. -Roger Ebert

I actually used to smile a lot in pictures. I think I only stopped smiling when I got into fashion. Fashion stole my smile! -Victoria Beckham

4chan is a framework of pictures and text. I've always been extremely hands-off with dictating what gets posted, past general categories and rules. I support providing a place to discuss anything, although I don't agree with everything that's posted. -Christopher Poole

At 'SNL' there's framed pictures of all the cast members, and it starts with Dan Aykroyd. It's linear. It just keeps going through all these people, and then you're at the end of it. -Fred Armisen

Believe me, I don't like being photographed. I don't like myself in pictures. Actually, I do sometimes. -Darius Khondji

You have to be very, very good looking to get ahead in motion pictures. -Elaine Stritch

Take a random selection of photographs of America in 2012 and 2002 and 1992 and, except for the skinny jeans and the porkpie hats, you'll be hard-pressed to tell the years in which the pictures were taken. -Graydon Carter

As long as the world continues to be strange and interesting, I still want to take pictures of it. -Moby

My stepfather gave me a Kodak camera when I was 17 years old. I started working at a local photo store in Le Havre, France, taking passport pictures and photographing weddings. -Patrick Demarchelier

It doesn't matter if you can't speak the same language. If you have pictures, or better still, if you can draw things, then you can communicate anything to anyone. -Antony Gormley

The old world of England was picturesque and safe in a way that L.A. wasn't, but it was so amazingly socially cruel. I had never experienced that in America – never in school, nowhere. -Rachel Cusk

Time flies so quick. I remember my second year in business when Bullocks Wilshire did a whole window of my white dresses. I was so excited, I went there at night and took pictures. -Tadashi Shoji

Digital photography and Photoshop have made it very easy for people to take pictures. It's a medium that allows a lot of mediocre stuff to get through. -Edward Burtynsky

The bass is just the crayon that I picked out of the box. I'd probably be writing similar stuff if I played guitar or trumpet. The pictures I want to draw I do with this crayon I chose, which is the bass. -Les Claypool

Because I could dance, my folks went through hell so I could be in movies. But I didn't dance in pictures. I cried! At one point I had polio, which I believe was a result of the stress I felt in the studios. -David Holt

! discovered photography completely by chance. My wife is an architect; when we were young and living in Paris, she bought a camera to take pictures of buildings. For the first time, I looked through a lens – and photography immediately started to invade my life. -Sebastiao Salgado

I work on stories rather than individual pictures. -Sebastiao Salgado

So many times I've photographed stories that show the degradation of the planet. I had one idea to go and photograph the factories that were polluting, and to see all the deposits of garbage. But, in the end, I thought the only way to give us an incentive, to bring hope, is to show the pictures of the pristine planet – to see the innocence. -Sebastiao Salgado

I played music and sang from my earliest memories. The first pictures of me show me wandering around with a guitar that was larger than I was, and it became almost second nature to me. -Dwight Yoakam

Video is a funny thing. It's one thing to be an artist, singer-songwriter, and use words and create pictures in people's minds. And then be asked to do video for it, to actually give a certain visual for your song. -Melissa Etheridge

I began my career creating art for an animated feature film, and it has been a life-long dream to tell some of the story of my own life – the story behind my art – through the medium of motion pictures. -Thomas Kinkade

Literature is the stringing together of pictures in words. -Thomas Kinkade

Human technology has made it to Mars. We are transmitting gorgeous pictures from it. Yet we have not explored our own planet. Two-thirds of it is covered with oceans that are still mysterious places. -Barbara Block

Like most people – unless they're very practised at it or have no warm blood at all in their veins – I feel a little apprehensive about the red carpet. It's always a bit bewildering when people are taking pictures and asking questions before the ceremony. -Viggo Mortensen

I love taking pictures. I'm always the one with the camera! -Cindy Busby

It's difficult to choose a Word of the Year in the year that you're in. It's one of those things that hindsight makes more apparent. It's like looking at pictures from 10 years ago, and you notice the flannel and the ripped jeans. At the time, it didn't look to you like a real fashion trend. -Erin McKean

When you look at the 'New York Times,' you look at other elite media, what you largely get are pictures of very wealthy nations and the nations we've invaded. -Ethan Zuckerman

It is not enough to photograph the obviously picturesque. -Dorothea Lange

I think with pictures; I'm a very lousy writer. If I write without pictures, I become this pathetic chick sitting somewhere trying to be interesting. -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

I don't watch the movies I'm in – ever. Sometimes I keep pictures, but that's it. I used to watch my movies, because I didn't want to be rude to the people making them, but I stopped a few years ago. I think it's pretty common among actors. It's like listening to your own voice, but multiplied by a million. -Jesse Eisenberg

Everyone in a band has a big ego – they love having pictures taken. -Giles Duley

We've been surrounded by images of space our whole lives, from the speculative images of science fiction to the inspirational visions of artists to the increasingly beautiful pictures made possible by complex technologies. But whilst we have an overwhelmingly vivid visual understanding of space, we have no sense of what space sounds like. -Honor Harger

Radio astronomy reflects our fascination with how audio can be used to understand information or ideas. Just as scientists visualize data through charts and pictures, we can use 'data sonification' to translate radio signals into sound that help us better understand some of our most enigmatic planetary systems. -Honor Harger

The scientist-community guy may get a $500,000 grant, and if his equipment works or doesn't work, he still gets a gold star for doing the science experiment. For me, there is no merit in anything for doing an experiment; I have to go home with pictures. -James Balog

I was raised by my grandparents, and they always made sure that I had a pencil and some paper, whether we were in the car or at a restaurant. While they were enjoying a nice meal, I would be sitting there drawing funny pictures of the waitress. -Jarrett J. Krosoczka

I don't mind fans coming up in a friendly, respectful way. That's all part of the fun of being a top tennis player. But if people take pictures without permission, particularly if my children are in the shot, I feel uncomfortable. -Roger Federer

I had a book that was given to me as a kid that was called 'Faeries.' It was this dark, sinister book with pictures that used to scare me because they were these creepy little creatures. But, I was always really drawn to that fantasy world, more than a sci-fi world, in terms of outer space stuff. -Anna Silk

What I do love is the traveling… and getting paid for it! I like being in front of a camera… It's an outlet. It's fun! If you look through my photo album, they are all modeling poses. My mom was a young mom, so she took tons of pictures of me. -Crystal Lowe

I've been drawing authors and politicians for newspapers for many years. I try to read up on the person; in the case of authors, read one of their books. I watch interviews via YouTube and collect pictures via the Internet. -Siegfried Woldhek

I like to turn things upside down, to watch pictures and situations from another perspective. -Ursus Wehrli

I grew up in the prolonged survival of the great age of the horse, with harness and saddle and sleigh bells and horse pictures, not as antiques but the facts of our lives. -Paul Engle

Cole Haan is like high fashion Nike, so you feel like you're wearing Nike shoes, but you're wearing heels. Every time I'm on a red carpet, I always either wear Cole Haan or Stuart Weitzman. You end up having to walk around all night in these heels and you want to be comfortable and not look like you're in pain. It definitely shows in pictures. -Nina Dobrev

I'm always taking pictures and travelling with a camera and have so many photos that I've done a book. -Norman Reedus

I think it's mainly when I need inspiration I look at the old pictures. I don't find it as much in the new stuff. I love Carole Lombard. I think she's wonderful. Gloria Grahame was really great. Garbo. Dietrich. People knew how to create an illusion. Now everything is very realistic and straightforward. Everyone's grunge. -Kelly Rutherford

I enjoy passing time in my house. I'll get up, head out on the terrace, think about what to do, fool around oiling the floorboards or hanging pictures askew. -Daniel Bruhl

When I was a kid, I was a bit of a space geek. I loved the space program and all things NASA. I would read books about our solar system; I had pictures of the Space Shuttle on my bedroom wall. And yes, I even went to Space Camp. -Simon Sinek

Every artist is supposed to get emotional. You're painting pictures of emotions. -Wale

I have a 4-year-old and a 14-year-old, and think I missed a recital and a graduation, and they were like 'It's OK mommy, we'll take pictures.' It was my upset, though… they were just fine! I just give them a kiss and a hug and let them know that I love them every day. -Kimberly Quinn

I have as many pictures of my vocal cords as I do of my children. I have a great ear, nose and throat doctor, and we look at them – if there's some redness, maybe I'll take a little time off. -Anita Baker

I love that vision-board thing where you cut out pictures that resonate with you so they'll manifest. I've done that since I was three; I cut out pictures of ladies from the JCPenney catalog. -Maria Bamford

I don't go out to parties because I'd look terrible in pictures. My escape is television – it's like meditation to me. -Alber Elbaz

Carnegie Hall is as good as they say it is. It's not like Stonehenge which looks great in books but then you go there and it's a pile of rocks next to a highway. There's actually a highway right next to it, but you don't see that in pictures. -Bill Burr

I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn't even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I'd found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged. -Emma Watson

Christmas morning, I'm going to open presents with my kids. I'm going to take pictures of them opening the presents. Then I'm going to come to the Staples Center and get ready to work. -Kobe Bryant

I never had any interest in sitcoms or motion pictures or anything like that. -Norm MacDonald

I thought I was taking pictures of things that I hated. But there was something about these pictures. They were unexpectedly, disconcertingly glorious. -Robert Adams

I began making pictures because I wanted to record what supports hope: the untranslatable mystery and beauty of the world. Along the way, however, the camera also caught evidence against hope, and I eventually concluded that this, too, belonged in pictures if they were to be truthful and thus useful. -Robert Adams

My first show at MoMA in New York was pictures of new developments along the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains. They were housing developments that were brutal in many ways, that cared almost not a thing for the human beings inside. They were just designed to make money. -Robert Adams

I always say that I'm an artist who works with pictures and words, so I think that the different aspects of my activity, whether it's writing criticism, or doing visual work that incorporates writing, or teaching, or curating, is all of a single cloth, and I don't make any separation in terms of those practices. -Barbara Kruger

First, the newcomers are eager to come in front of the camera, and later they are like, 'No, sorry, sorry, no pictures'. What is this? I say fame is a very dangerous and bitter thing. -Boman Irani

The trailblazers are my role models in this industry: Sidney Poitier, Harry Belafonte, James Earl Jones, and Billy Dee Williams. I keep their pictures in my trailer and try to measure to their standards every time I act. -Brian J. White

The technology keeps moving forward, which makes it easier for the artists to tell their stories and paint the pictures they want. -George Lucas

Digital technology is the same revolution as adding sound to pictures and the same revolution as adding color to pictures. Nothing more and nothing less. -George Lucas

Partying and having all of those pictures taken distracts from the work that I do. It's not why I started acting. I didn't get into acting to be written about. It kind of just happened – so I accept that it's my life. -Lindsay Lohan

I don't go on that many dates, because the truth is, anytime you go out in public with a girl when you're well-known, there are pictures of you everywhere, and it's like you're a thing. -George Clooney

Like all girls, when I was growing up, I always worried about this bit of me being too fat or that bit. But I look back at pictures of me when I was young, and I was thin and gorgeous. -Jennifer Saunders

You can make a board for all the goals you want in your life with the pictures on it, and that's great, daydreaming is wonderful, but you can never plan your future. -Taylor Swift

All of my walls are covered with framed pictures of my friends. -Taylor Swift

One of my passions is photography. I always carry a camera in my bag whenever I travel. I always take pictures wherever I go, and some of them end up being really crazy ones. -Sunidhi Chauhan

Make no mistake: Bob Ritchie's up early in the morning taking pictures of his son on the first day of his senior year. Kid Rock is passed out in a hotel room somewhere with four scantily-clad women. -Kid Rock

I think that televisions are unnecessarily complex. The irony is that as the pictures get better and the choice of content gets broader, that the complexity of the experience of using the television gets more and more complicated. -John Sculley

I draw hundreds and hundreds of pictures of sort of gnarly looking men, so I don't know what that tells you. People who look like… they're waiting for a sandwich that's never going to come. I don't know what's wrong with me. -Dylan Moran

When you come to a hotel room, you want it to be grand, functional and beautiful. But you don't want things that are not useful. Sometimes you go to hotels and there are all these frames and pictures of people you don't know, and you end up hiding everything in the drawer, and then housekeeping come and put it out again. -Diane von Furstenberg

I never modeled myself after anyone. The person who had most influence on me was my mother, but it was really for her strength and courage more than her style, even though she had a lot of style. In a weird way, looking at pictures of me when I was 17 or 18, I was dressing the same way. I haven't changed very much. -Diane von Furstenberg

I'm a visual thinker. Research tells us that only 20 per cent of people think visually. So what about the other 80 per cent? Don't they think in pictures? I mean if you imagine washing and preparing potatoes you visualise the process, right? -Douglas Coupland

Bloated budgets are ruining Hollywood – these pictures are squeezing all the other types of movies out of Hollywood. It's disastrous. -Steven Spielberg

I carry a disposable camera. It takes me back to my childhood, when you had to develop your film and wait to see what pictures you got. -Christa B. Allen

I have always liked to get my pictures taken, and I like taking care of my looks. But, I am not one to use beauty products and treatments. -Vijender Singh

I love the quality, feel and history of film. I love the pictures of the giant cameras and the way it was. -David Lynch

How do you know someone is a grandparent? They've got milk stains on every shirt from burping babies. Their pants are worn out at the knees from crawling around giving pony rides. They have 2,842 pictures of the grandkids on their smart phone and not one photo of their spouse. -Regina Brett

I think a woman can have all of the ideas and mental pictures. She can be a real planner and a motivator. But in the end, I think a woman does best when she responds to a man. -Amy Grant

When I look back at the pictures of our blended family the day Vince and I married, he and I are smiling, and all the children are frowning. -Amy Grant

Music, architecture and pictures have always been my passions, and all that material wealth has meant for me, is being able to have some of the pictures I liked. -Andrew Lloyd Webber

Yes, I receive fan mail. One of my favorite things to do is sit down and read the letters people write. It's really amazing the time people take to write these letters, tell their stories, draw pictures, etc. -Marisa Miller

I think I'm rather young and sprightly, but then you see pictures of yourself and think, 'Who is that old man?' and I realise I'm not as young as I thought I was. -Hugh Grant

Fifteen years ago, I suffered a stroke, which caused me to lose my speech. Now, what does an actor who can't talk do? Wait for silent pictures to come back? I work with a speech therapist twice a week. -Kirk Douglas

It's all about the light. Always face it, because that's how you give your face good angles. If you're outside when the sun is overhead, you're going to have dark circles from the sun creating shadows on your face. So no outdoor pictures between 12 and two! -Gisele Bundchen

It's not a natural translation, transition, to take something from stage to screen. Onstage your action is communicated through the spoken word primarily, and on screen it's communicated through pictures. So it's always been kind of unnatural to take something that lives on the stage and turn it into moving pictures. -Tracy Letts

Facebook and pictures on the Internet have created such a different way of dating. It's not necessarily good because an obsessive quality can develop in people. -Alexander Koch

By and large, the making of motion pictures is all about, 'Let's ratchet it up.' And I always think, 'We don't need to ratchet this up.' If you do, don't call it 'Captain Phillips' or 'The Maersk Alabama.' Call it something else, and then you have carte blanche to do anything, down to sea serpents and aliens. -Tom Hanks

In the Fifties, my parents were known as 'America's sweethearts'. Their pictures graced the covers of all the newspapers. They were the Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston of their day. -Carrie Fisher

The designs of the paper euros, introduced in 2002, proclaim a utopian aspiration. Gone are the colorful bills of particular nations, featuring pictures of national heroes of statecraft, culture and the arts, pictures celebrating unique national narratives. With the euro, 16 nations have said goodbye to all that. -George Will

A book and a movie are different animals. You need a cinematic perspective to be involved in the motion pictures. And this is something I lack. -Ashwin Sanghi

It was so exciting to go to the record shop and buy a piece of vinyl and hold it, read the liner notes, look at the pictures. Even the smell of the vinyl. -Martin Gore

'The Indian Runner' was easy. It had been incubating in me for eight years, and by the time I sat down to write the thing, I had all the pictures in my head. -Sean Penn

When I buy a Nikon camera, I have no tolerance for the instructions. I'm ready to make some mistakes using it and get some bad pictures back until I've figured it out for myself. -Sean Penn

I won't allow magazines in the house. When I was younger, I wanted to have my hair cut like so-and-so in the class above me at school, not somebody in a magazine. You see young girls trying to dress like so-and-so because they've seen lots of pictures of them. -Kate Winslet

I certainly knew from an early age… how to tell stories; how to create pictures in other people's heads. -Clive Barker

People do that on Facebook and it's the dumbest thing in the world. I don't care what your dinner looks like. Stop cluttering up the Internet with pictures of your dinner. -Seth MacFarlane

One of the great things about being a writer/journalist is that my boss loves me to go out and do features on being someone else. I did a feature on Kate Middleton, where I went to an incredible fancy state home in the countryside, put on a wedding dress and posed for engagement pictures with a fake Prince William. -Caitlin Moran

I want to make books. I want to take pictures and then write all over the pictures. And then I don't have to say a complete story, because I have the picture, and I have just a word. -Kristen Stewart

I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I'm not embarrassed about it. I'm proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, 'What an actress! What a faker!' -Kristen Stewart

For 'Picture This,' I wanted it to be a drawing book that didn't have any instructions about drawing, beyond the real simple stuff you'd find like in a Bazooka bubblegum wrapper, or in 'Highlights' magazine. I just wanted it to be feelings about looking and seeing and pictures. -Lynda Barry

When you are little, you will draw pictures for no reason. -Lynda Barry

I love food. I mean, I really love food. I take pictures of my finest, funniest and most fascinating dishes, post them on Twitter, and send them to friends. I treat menus like classic literature, refusing to skip even one word. I read the description of every item, regardless of whether or not I'm interested in eating it. -Rachel Nichols

I'm motivated every second by my work; it doesn't switch off. The pictures I make come from every blink of my lashes. -Sam Taylor-Johnson

'Halo' I wrote with my grandpa in his nursing home. When I went to visit him, he'd often comment on my halo. But of course, I couldn't see. And he always – he had pictures of Jesus with these beautiful halos. And so I asked him if he'd write a song with me about Jesus' halo. -Abigail Washburn

I had no trouble going from radio to TV – I just thought of TV as radio with pictures. -Larry King

I've always said the bass just happens to be the crayon I picked out of the box. I'd still be drawing the same pictures… should I have picked trumpet or accordion or guitar, whatever it may be. The sounds in my head are still the same. -Les Claypool

In all our pictures, we had an antagonist who becomes the good guy, and the underdog fulfills his quest. -Arthur Rankin, Jr.

I do not like candid pictures. They are so unattractive. -Rose Kennedy

I try to make pictures I would want to see. -John Lasseter

I love 3-D. I have been a big fan of 3-D for a long, long time. I took my 1988 wedding pictures in 3-D! -John Lasseter

Some things I won't do for any amount of money. Like for instance, there's a couple of CEOs of very large corporations that offered me lots of money to do special pictures for them. And I just refused to do that. Even if it was a million dollars I wouldn't do it. -Robert Crumb

Pictures have a lot more power than text. Text is just a bunch of little symbols. You have to actually read it and imagine it, and even that can be censored. With pictures, it's a lot more immediate. -Robert Crumb

When I was young, around 5, I was crying in all the pictures of me. I did not like the flash; it scared me! -Adriana Lima

I've learned to create a palette, a vocabulary of ways to take pictures. -Annie Leibovitz

I like California but I'm dyed-in-the-wool Oklahoma. I see a deer in L.A., and everybody's standing around it taking pictures. Back home, that's the enemy! -Blake Shelton

I just stick my tongue out because I hate smiling in pictures. It's so awkward. It looks so cheesy. -Miley Cyrus

Let's get into talking about how autism is similar animal behavior. The thing is I don't think in a language, and animals don't think in a language. It's sensory based thinking, thinking in pictures, thinking in smells, thinking in touches. It's putting these sensory based memories into categories. -Temple Grandin

Language for me narrates the pictures in my mind. -Temple Grandin

My mind works like Google for images. You put in a key word; it brings up pictures. -Temple Grandin

When I was in high school and college, I thought everybody could think in pictures. And my first inkling to my thinking was even different was when I was in college and I read an article about, you know, some scientist said that the caveman could not have designed tools until they had language. -Temple Grandin

My mind sort of works like a search engine. You ask me something, and I start seeing pictures. -Temple Grandin

I'm not good at taking pictures. I can't give a good face. I crack up. -Chrissy Teigen

I won't do advertising if they bring a layout and say, 'This is what we want to do,' because anybody can do that; it's not interesting. They've got digital and the computer; it's not taking pictures, it's not magic – it's a picture done by committee. -David Bailey

I do all my speeches in pictures. If I wrote words, I'd get locked in on them. -Jeff Kinney

They say I'm insane because I need to have so much creative control. They say I'm unmanageable, but I'm not. I just know what I like. I'm obsessed with it. If you can't control it, that's like having somebody else paint your pictures. How could you do that? I never could. -Iggy Azalea

I'd like to take more pictures of real celebrities. It would be fabulous to photograph Brad Pitt. He's so good-looking and just such a star. -Alison Jackson

If you see everything through the lens, you are constantly composing pictures. I think in pictures; I don't think in text. -Alison Jackson

I don't click pictures. People carry a camera with them while travelling, take pictures, keep them as memories, but I don't. I don't even have a camera. -Katrina Kaif

I'm obsessed with Tumblr. I love looking at all the pictures! -Kendall Jenner

Motherhood has most definitely changed me and my life. It's so crazy how drastic even the small details change – in such an amazing way. Even silly things, like the fact that all of my pictures on my cell phone used to be of me at photo shoots – conceited, I know! – but now every single picture on my phone is of Mason. -Kourtney Kardashian

At the prom, you are more about boys thinking you're cute. On the red carpet, you have to please everyone because there are a lot more people looking at those pictures. -Laura Marano

I am excited to share my archive pictures and footage. I'll also share announcements about current events and success stories from the Sugar Ray Leonard Foundation to help fight diabetes and child obesity. -Sugar Ray Leonard

My freshman English professor at Kent State University in 1984 told me I was a good writer, and she loved all the silly pictures I drew in my notebook. She said I should try writing children's books, and so I did. -Dav Pilkey

Being an author is fun. It's a great job, because I can stay up as late as I want, and if I feel like taking the day off, I do it. Plus, I get to make up silly stories and draw pictures all day. -Dav Pilkey

I was in Paris, Milan and London from '89 until '91, and I did mostly runway modeling. I know there's so many people out there looking for pictures, but this was way before the age of the Internet, sorry! -Carla Hall

I'm not particular. I don't have favourite pictures. -William Eggleston

What ends up in your scrapbook? The pictures where you look like a good guy and a good family man, and the children look adorable – and they're screaming the next minute. I've never seen a family album of screaming people. -Richard Avedon

Fashion pictures show people looking glamorous. Travel pictures show a place looking at its best, nothing to do with the reality. In the cookery pages, the food always looks amazing, right? Most of the pictures we consume are propaganda. -Martin Parr

If there is any jarring at all in my photographs, it's because we are so used to ingesting pictures of everywhere looking beautiful. -Martin Parr

In my dressing room, you'll definitely find some Starbursts and Skittles. I have a lot of candles that remind me of home, and a humidifier for my voice. I also have some digital Kodak albums where I have pictures of my friends and family. -Trey Songz

I really like doing portraits, but I like taking pictures of things that are natural, like scenery, too. -Georgia May Jagger

No one ever recognises me. Everyone says, 'You don't look like your pictures.' -Alison Goldfrapp

I grew up wanting to be a painter and paint pictures. -Paul Simonon

Over the years I always did some water colors, and I did a series of pictures of drawings. I always did it during a period of time that was slow in the photo business, but in essence it was always frustrating because I'd get started, and then it would be time to get back to work and I wouldn't get anywhere with the painting. -Sante D'Orazio

I have a genuine philosophy. I do not want to make negative pictures about people, and so I do everything I can to help make them feel comfortable in front of the camera. That is what is going to control your picture, because you are alone if your subject is not with you. And that's the simple answer to getting a good picture. -Douglas Kirkland

You must adapt to the situation. This is where the pictures come from. -Douglas Kirkland

When you look at my pictures, you are seeing my life. -Douglas Kirkland

I like to come into my workspace and feel it's a living environment and not frozen, which is why I often change or add to the pictures on the wall. -Sadie Jones

With photography, you are lucky if you get people to look at your pictures at some point. There's no formal way to show them. -Anton Corbijn

My first pictures are from 1972, and my first proper camera dates back to 1973. During the first year I used my father's camera. It had a flash on it, which I don't like, but I didn't know anything about photography back then, so it was just what I did. -Anton Corbijn

For me N.M.E. was a very big thing. When I first came to the United Kingdom I started taking pictures for them and I became their main photographer for five years, and that's really been the basis of everything I've been doing since. -Anton Corbijn

Newspapers and magazines didn't want pictures of musicians behaving badly back then. Now, because of the Internet, that's all the media wants. -Mick Rock

Somebody had given me a copy of 'Hunky Dory,' which had yet to be a hit, although it was starting to percolate. I'd seen a couple of pictures of David, with his interesting hairdo and outfits, and I decided to seek him out, which wasn't difficult back then, as he was eager to do any kind of publicity. -Mick Rock

I'd like to do radio just like pictures – leave the imperfect stuff on the cutting-room floor. -Al Jolson

Anna Wintour doesn't deal with pictures; she is just doing PR and business, and she scares everybody. -Azzedine Alaia

I believe, even when I'm doing my standup or my acting or whatever I'm doing, I believe in painting pictures. -J. B. Smoove

What was very interesting to me about Clementine Hunter's work is that she couldn't read or write, and she has recorded history of the plantation life and the southern part of the U.S. – the cotton harvests, pecan picking, washing clothes, funerals, marriages – in pictures. -Robert Wilson

When you have a magazine like 'Vogue,' you know a lot of kids are going to follow your pictures. -Carine Roitfeld

The reason I call my book 'Irreverent' is because there were a lot of pictures that were very irreverent. Maybe I could call my book 'Forgiving' because maybe I made a lot of errors, too. -Carine Roitfeld

My pictures are my eyes. I photograph what I see – and what I want to see. -Mario Testino

There is something about Prince William and Prince Harry that brings real modernity to the British royal family. They are also very open, human, and kind, and this is what I have tried to capture in the pictures I have taken of them as well as in my pictures of Prince William and Catherine. -Mario Testino

However spontaneous I hope a photograph will look, I always put a lot of thought into how I can make it happen. The very best pictures are the most relaxed, so a lot of fussing around technically can completely break the spell, and everyone freezes up with nerves. -Mario Testino

Vintage rock T-shirts are the best. I have about 50 or 60, most bought on eBay for a few pounds. You can always tell which ones are genuine because there'll be lots of pictures showing you the holes. -Jessica Hart

I was very camera shy. People like hot girls, so I put my music to hot girls and it just became a trend. The whole 'enigmatic artist' thing, I just ran with it. No one could find pictures of me. -The Weeknd

I seem to have a one-track mind. When I was having babies, I did nothing else. When I do pictures, I go all out. I really think it is easier to manage my seven. You can't afford to humor each one of them. They have to learn to do things when they are told. -Maureen O'Sullivan

When I started working in fashion, I didn't have money to buy photographs, so I'd Xerox pictures from magazines and put them in notebooks. When I'd start a collection, I'd sit with my old notebooks and look through them for inspiration. -John Varvatos

A part of my kind of design and inspiration ethos is that I carry around a leather notebook and I sketch in it, doodle in it, write notes in it, and I put pictures in it. -John Varvatos

There's no reason for anybody to jump out of bushes to take pictures of me. I'm not doing anything exciting. -Sarah McLachlan

I've always loved the Bond pictures. I have watched every single one. Movies don't get bigger or better than Bond, so I knew this was my opportunity to do a massive action picture with outrageous stunts. -Lee Tamahori

If you can't read, the only thing you can do is enjoy the pictures, not the whole story. Reading is the key to knowledge. Knowledge is the key to understanding. So read on, young man! Read on, young lady! -Mr. T

If you want to make pictures and enjoy making them, you better go out and make something that a lot of people want to see. And then they'll turn you lose and let you make what you want. And then maybe you can do some of the things that you want to do. But as a beginner, you haven't got a chance. -Howard Hawks

There will never be talking pictures. -D. W. Griffith

I would put my pictures up against anybody's in this world. Certainly in my own day I bow to no one. I don't think there's another director in the world who works harder to make better films than I do. -John Cassavetes

The thing is, as a film director, you're essentially alone: You have to tell a story primarily through pictures, and only you know the film you see in your head. -Mike Nichols

I have lived in public as a somewhat recognizable person since I was a teenager. Emails I answer end up posted on sites; pictures of me and someone I just met, taken by a cellphone, literally number in the thousands and are easily accessed. -Henry Rollins

My dad claims that he was able to trace us back to the West Virginia Hatfields. When I look at the old pictures, the patriarchs have kind of a physical likeness to some of the men on the father's side of my family. I want it to be true. -Juliana Hatfield

I stress out so much about the red carpet and interviews and pictures, and, you know, not getting my skirt tucked in my knickers. -Maisie Williams

Detroit's industrial ruins are picturesque, like crumbling Rome in an 18th-century etching. -P. J. O'Rourke

People don't realize that one picture for you is just one picture. But for me, I take a thousand pictures a day. That adds up. It's tough getting somewhere on time when you have to stop that much. -Chumlee

Often as a poet I find that I am somewhat outside an experience I want to hold onto, consciously taking mental notes or writing them down in my journal – for fear that I will forget. It's not unlike being on a trip and taking pictures, your face behind a camera the whole time – the entire experience mediated by a lens. -Natasha Trethewey

It's too bad that there aren't as many light comedies around in the movies as there were when I was making pictures like 'The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer.' The boys are just not writing them. Many writers are more serious now than they used to be, and that's showing up in all phases of entertainment. -Rudy Vallee

'La Notte' is my favorite of the Antonioni pictures and my favorite work of the master cinematographer Gianni di Venanzo, who also shot '8 1/2' for Fellini. -Jake Paltrow

Do I need fifty finger-painted pictures by my toddler, or is one enough to capture this time of life? Mementos work best when they're carefully chosen – and when they don't take up much room! -Gretchen Rubin

Why would a novel – which is all about the inward processes of people's developing feelings and developing relationships – why would you be able to portray that in pictures with as few words as possible, which is what the best films are? -Sebastian Faulks

I know from experience it's very hard to get access to a prison to take pictures. -David Allee

I never seek controversy or foresee it for my pictures. I take a personal stand, and perhaps because my films are on contemporary subjects, people do not share my point of view. -Otto Preminger

I can't talk about every single film I made. It's not my way to go back into the past and to look at my old pictures and to discuss them. -Otto Preminger

Today, the paparazzi are not just photographers: everyone has a cell phone with a camera. If they see an actor, they click pictures to show it to their friends or have it on their phones and, as an actor, I don't see anything wrong with it. Having said that, there is a limit that has been crossed, but there is nothing right or wrong. -Ranbir Kapoor

As far as putting stuff on social media, I think Instagram is really cool because I like the visual aspect. You're taking pictures, and you can put a filter on them, and it's super creative. -Ross Lynch

My bedroom was plastered with pictures of Van Damme. My mother was worried about me. Most teenage boys have half-naked women on their walls, and I had Jean-Claude. -Scott Adkins

It makes me happy that people recognise me and want to click pictures with me. But sometimes, I want to be a common person. I want to go to a coffee shop and just chill. I miss driving my car with the windows rolled down. -Sonam Kapoor

When I travel with my kids abroad, I am not myself, but I'm more a father who wants to protect them. Sometimes, I am even aggressive about certain things and get surprised seeing myself like that: for instance, when people want to take pictures of them. I am fine if they want to take my pictures, but they are not public property. -A. R. Rahman

All chefs have pictures of food in their phones, stuffed pig's ears and pigs' heads and the like. -April Bloomfield

I personally have gone to photo shoots and see the pictures afterwards, and I don't look like me because I'm just so airbrushed and so, kind of, fake and almost plastic-looking, you know? -Jennette McCurdy

I started drawing when I was about 2, mostly pictures of my mother and my sister. When I got into school, instead of taking the notes that I should have been taking, I was drawing in all of my notebooks. It was an artwork thing for me at first. -Megan Fox

I have a big box of autographs. I took photographs of me and Marlene Dietrich, me and Ida Lupino. I took pictures of Myrna Loy and Joel McCrea in front of the studios. I loved Hollywood. I have 500 autographs and 500 photographs I took. -Ray Bradbury

There's a very big difference between negotiating to borrow billions of dollars on behalf of MCA and negotiating to borrow 28 cents in connection with making independent pictures. -Sidney Sheinberg

It's rare that I'm able to get to my desk in the morning without stopping halfway there, turning around, and going in the opposite direction because of a pressing need to straighten all the pictures on the walls, floss my teeth a second time, and make certain that there really are 100 postage stamps in the roll of stamps I bought yesterday. -Rosemary Mahoney

I've been using the power of the IMAX medium, with its gigantic screens and supervivid pictures, to get people to fall in love with the ocean. -Greg MacGillivray

The first time I worked with colors was by making these mosaics of Pantone swatches. They end up being very large pictures, and I photographed with a very large camera – an 8×10 camera. So you can see the surface of every single swatch – like in this picture of Chuck Close. And you have to walk very far to be able to see it. -Vik Muniz

Drawing is not only a way to come up with pictures: drawing is a way to educate your eye to understand visual information, organizing it into a more hierarchical way, a more economical way. When you see something, if you draw often and frequently, you examine a room very differently. -Vik Muniz

I have been very fortunate to be able to work and get the opportunity to play different roles. It's nice to do big studio pictures and then work in Glasgow on films like 'Red Road' and then dress up as a vampire or an alien. I think that's why a lot of people are actors – the versatility. -Tony Curran

I like Instagram – I love pictures, I just don't take them very often. -Cecily Strong

The landlord of colonial days may not have been the greatest man in town, but he was certainly the best-known, often the most popular, and ever the most picturesque and cheerful figure. -Alice Morse Earle

I never think about my style but just try and make the pictures look believable. -Lucian Freud

I do Facebook, but I only have my friends and family on it, and they always laugh at me for how little I post. I don't know how to upload photos, so I never add pictures. -Joanne Froggatt

M.G.M. never really gave me a break. They loaned me out for leading roles but cast me in programme pictures. -Laraine Day

If you take the '70s with Blaxploitation pictures, there was a proliferation of black-content films and motion pictures, television, stage plays and so forth at a time when Hollywood was in trouble financially, and it was cheaper to do black films to keep the lights on until they could reestablish themselves. -Glynn Turman

I just love to take pictures. -Cecilia Roth

Digital technology has thrown a closed shop wide open, and there are more people out there snapping away than ever before. Some of the pictures are bad, some of them are good, and many of them need some seasoning and direction. -Joe McNally

I wish I had never taken naked pictures of myself on a phone to send to a girl. It's the worst thing ever. -Pete Wentz

I think I need pictures with my articles. -Dominick Dunne

I started taking pictures when I was around 10, so I have been inadvertently been training my eye for it for years. Traveling gave me a ton of practice as well, and the ability, once you learn to properly manipulate and capture light and freeze any moment in time for safe keeping, has always fascinated me. -Keahu Kahuanui

I've known Larry Clark since I was fourteen. I've always skateboarded in Manhattan. Larry got into the scene in the early '90s, taking pictures and skating with us. -Leo Fitzpatrick

There is a difference between the stuff that people put online themselves, like pictures and their trips and flights and meals they've eaten, than the stuff that they don't realize is also going into foreign computers. Like, for example, copies of your emails or every single online search you ever do, 'cause all that is being recorded as well. -Mikko Hypponen

You can get pictures into what people are sort of thinking about others. Just go onto Google and type 'Why are Indians' and then look for the autocomplete. -Sendhil Mullainathan

There will be an end point to how good TV pictures can get. The boob tube has hugely benefited from the rapid advance of digital electronics. Consequently, the strategy for hardware has changed. In the old days, sets had to be as simple as Elmer Fudd to keep them inexpensive. All the technical 'smarts' were at the transmitter end. -Seth Shostak

When I was a kid, which was just after Edison invented moving pictures, there were films that involved aliens coming to Earth for bad purposes. -Seth Shostak

Alfred Hitchcock once told me, when I was analyzing a lot of things about his pictures, 'Clint, you must remember, it's only a movie.' -Clint Eastwood

A lot of dumb pictures have made a lot of money, but that doesn't mean they're going to be anything cinema students will revel over in the future. -Clint Eastwood

If you ever go to a music session, you'll notice that the musicians can sit down and start playing right away, and everyone knows what to do. Of course they're reading it, but the conductor can tweak little things, and you can take that back to directing motion pictures. -Clint Eastwood

'Le Reve' may be one of the three best pictures Pablo Picasso ever painted. -Steve Wynn

More people would recognise me in Kingston, but it's rare to go on the road and not get recognised by someone. The problem now is everyone has a camera in their pocket, on their cell phone – at the airport it's difficult to get from point A to point B without taking half an hour because there are so many people taking pictures. -Damian Marley

Sometimes in news photography and so on, the pictures are a little bit dry, and put on the page and just set in a journalistic way in front of you. -Chris Hondros

My retirement is both voluntary and involuntary. One reason, and this is voluntary, is the impact of television. All old movies are turning up on television, and frankly, making pictures doesn't interest me anymore. Another reason is that the film industry is in a declining state. -Randolph Scott

Silent pictures show us how we lived and what our attitudes were. And as an art form, they can be wonderfully entertaining and often inspirational. -Kevin Brownlow

I get all dressed up in fuchsia, looking like a clown, and show pretty pictures to people. -Alexandra Stoddard

I'm a 'Power of Now' kind of guy, always have been. I don't really hang on to a lot of pictures. I have pictures of my daughters. -Art Alexakis

My interior is very, very dense – Proustian-looking, sort of Henry James. The walls are covered in pictures, and I transformed the big drawing room into a library lined with books. -Hamish Bowles

My inspiration can come from anything – films, the street, paparazzi pictures. -Craig McDean

I'm blessed with a great memory. To be honest, a lot of times, being on my own at such a young age, my memories were all I had. I didn't have many pictures. -Jaime Pressly

Michael Jackson is an accidental civil rights leader – an accidental pioneer. He broke ground and barriers in so many different realms in artistry, in pictures, in movies, in music, you name it. -Don Lemon

There's a bookstore in New York where you could buy scripts, and I got addicted to them because they were easy, quick reads… and the pictures were so vivid. -Robbie Robertson

When the Internet came along, at first it was just a medium for moving text around – books first, then pictures, finally video. Each time the bandwidth expanded, so did the capabilities of the medium, and each time it happened, the Internet cannibalized preexisting formats. And each time, those formats had to adapt. Or die. -David Gerrold

I don't take pictures when I'm with my kids, for the sake of my kids. It's important when you're as busy as I am that you give your kids your time when you're with them, and nothing compromises that. I've been lucky enough to have fans that understand that. -Kevin Hart

In a media culture, we not only judge strangers by how they look but by the images of how they look. So we want attractive pictures of our heroes and repulsive images of our enemies. -Virginia Postrel

Why take notes? The obvious reason is to remember. Visual note-taking translates what we hear into pictures that give context, color, and meaning. By adding symbols, visual metaphors, likenesses of people, and room layouts, we add several dimensions. -Tom Wujec

Ted Williams is one of the best hitters ever to play the game, and I didn't get a chance to see him play, so all I could do was read books and look at pictures. -Tony Gwynn

I am not writing for scholars or fellow critics, but for people who like to read, to look at pictures, and to know things. -Guy Davenport

I foresaw the financial crisis. I get messages in my sleep, in pictures and words. I understood that I have a mission and a role in ensuring human existence. I received a message that people would soon start to go crazy. -Shari Arison

When I'm not painting, I'm Oujia-boarding with my photos. I'll sort through my pictures, put them in different folders, and come back months later to one in particular and try to figure out why I took it. -Damian Loeb

I take a lot of pictures. -Damian Loeb

Step one of Street View was to get the pictures in place – in a few short years, we've gotten used to the idea that nearly any place on earth can now be visited as a set of images on Google. -John Battelle

My mother always kept library books in the house, and one rainy Sunday afternoon – this was before television, and we didn't even have a radio – I picked up a book to look at the pictures and discovered I was reading and enjoying what I read. -Beverly Cleary

I live in Nashville, and I love to sing. When I'm on stage, I feel like a performer for sure. I know people are looking at me and taking pictures and singing along, and that part's wonderful, but I do live in Nashville. I live the most boring life away from what you see me on camera doing. -Carrie Underwood

You can say what you want about me. You can yell at me with a video camera and be TMZ. You can follow me around and take pictures all you want. I don't care. -Ben Affleck

My kids aren't celebrities. They never made that bargain. We were offered a lot of money to sell pictures of our kids when they were born. You'll notice there aren't any. I make no judgment about people who decide differently; a lot of them give the money to charity. For me, it was a matter of principle. -Ben Affleck

The hardest thing for an artist to do is to let go. I don't wanna be the dude – if you come to my house, there are no pictures circa '86 in my house. -Heavy D

Tweets? That stuff kills conversation. And people taking pictures with their phone or recording you, sometimes surreptitiously, is creepy. They come up and just start talking to you, and you can see the red light on their phone. -Robin Williams

When I'm tired, I see industrial pictures. But I'll see one every two months. If I see one every day, I'll become an idiot. -Alejandro Jodorowsky

All the pictures I could never do, I'll do it in comics. All the comics I do are the pictures I could never do. -Alejandro Jodorowsky

I grew up in the north of Chile, and this is why there are a lot of religious symbols in my pictures: because the Catholic Church in Latin America is very strong. -Alejandro Jodorowsky

People want to act like they know celebrities. They want to see pictures. They want to know where you're going. They want to hear you talk about your family. -Kevin Hart

I haven't seen 'The Exorcist,' but I've seen a lot of pictures of the girl in it. So now I don't actually want to see it. She scares me so much. I don't know what it is, but even though it's quite old now, it still has the best and scariest make-up I've ever seen in my life. -Kodi Smit-McPhee

I fall asleep everywhere! Someone recently asked if they could publish a book of pictures of me sleeping because there are so many. -Cara Delevingne

I can't sleep in the evenings. Most of the pictures people see of me are me going to work events: a Fendi dinner one night, a Prada dinner the next, and working all day. -Cara Delevingne

There's a few times in the past when I wrote a song, and I put the words together, and they were very clear pictures, and I felt like I was putting together a really good story. But I don't think I was ever really able to stay on that. What I've sort of developed lyrically is more about the sound of the vocals and what they are. -Justin Vernon

I take a few pictures a week, but the best part is waiting for my film to be developed. The suspense is exciting, and the reward is great. -Morgan Saylor

My iPhone stays on. All my friends and family know that I hate the phone, so no one calls me on it. I just use it to play Words With Friends and take pictures of cute shoes. -Jasika Nicole

If you look through my photo album, they are all modeling poses. My mom was a young mom, so she took tons of pictures of me. -Crystal Lowe

Natasha Lyonne is fantastic on Twitter. She posts hilarious pictures. I don't even know where she finds some of them; it'll be like a random picture of a chinchilla kissing a lion or Bill Murray and Jim Belushi out on a boat or something. -Uzo Aduba

I kept hiding my smile in pictures throughout middle school and most of high school until picture day came my senior year. -Uzo Aduba

Going into a shoot not fully knowing what I want to do – that excitement, that thing that happens, is just so powerful and makes such great pictures. -Terry Richardson

You should see my baby pictures. My cheeks hung off my face like water balloons. You can imagine how often I was teased. -Sean Covey

Even as a little kid, I was fascinated by newspapers and magazines. They were my TV. I'd be the first one up to grab the morning paper, mainly to look at the sports pictures, the war pictures. -Dan Jenkins

I've braved the red carpet when I didn't feel comfortable, and when I look at the pictures, it always shows! -Jessica Capshaw

From what I hear, everyone who does a Marvel movie gets a three-picture deal. I'll be Sam Jackson's stand-in. I'll do eight pictures for Marvel, and then I'll just do indies. Marvel can pay for my indie career. -Sinqua Walls

One of things I like about looking at pictures when you're young and also meeting back with old friends you haven't seen in a long time is, for me, it's a glimpse of who I was. -Lea Thompson

My writing philosophy is throwing spaghetti against the wall. That's how I take pictures, too. If I take 100, surely one will be good. -Amanda Peet

I was such a tomboy – goofy and, in my eyes, nerdy – and I never thought I would end up in modeling. I mean, you see pictures of these girls in magazines who have this incredible talent, and no one ever really thinks you can make it to that level. At least I didn't! -Erin Heatherton

I started my blog as an online diary. I moved to New York for a job, and I kind of wanted to keep my pictures all in one place. Also, I just love style blogs and wanted to join in on the fun! -Ashley Madekwe

My neighborhood now is all 21-year-old European supermodels. I go to the international newsstand on the corner, and they're all looking for their pictures in 'Italian Vogue.' -John Benjamin Hickey

I chose the Xperia based on its functions. Apart from using the phone to communicate, I also use it to take pictures. The image quality with this cell phone is great. -Okky Madasari

I was digging in the backyard to get my own clay and making pottery. And then I started taking pictures and built my own darkroom. I would go out at six in the morning and just take pictures. -Steven Klein

There was a mental institution near my house, and I would donate time teaching mentally ill patients how to do ceramics. I photographed them as well. So those were my first pictures. -Steven Klein

Before I came to New York, I only had a few pictures of the city in my mind. And you know 'That Girl?' Marlo Thomas jumping with her hat? I always loved that, and I wondered what that double street she crosses is. And it's Park Avenue! And that's what I can see out my window. -Kate Spade

At home, I have lot of pictures from 'The Walking Dead' and some stuff from comic books. At comic conventions, people will give me a lot of autographed stuff, so a lot of those are on my wall. -Chandler Riggs

A good picture book should have events that are visually arresting – the pictures should call attention to what is happening in the story. -Chris Van Allsburg

People have asked me a lot, 'What comes first? The pictures or the story? The story or the picture?' It's hard to describe because often they seem to come at the same time. I'm seeing images while I'm thinking of the story. -Chris Van Allsburg

As a kid, I grew up on a farm in Florida, and I did what most little kids do. I played a little baseball, did a few other things like that, but I always had the sense of being an outsider, and it wasn't until I saw pictures in the magazines that a couple other guys skate, I thought, 'Wow, that's for me,' you know? -Rodney Mullen

In westerns, you meet a hardy bunch of characters. There is no jealousy on such pictures. -John Wayne

I will have my publicist pull pictures of the way I look at events so I can see, 'Oh, that cut is not as flattering as I thought,' or 'I should smile bigger,' or 'That positioning is odd.' I learn from it. -Allison Williams

It's a normal thing for people to do, going on Facebook and seeing pictures of their exes with their new significant others. -Allison Williams

On my Instagram, my boyfriend will take pictures of me, or someone else will take a picture of me, and they're like, 'What is wrong with her? She looks sick.' And I'm like, 'No I just don't have two hours of hair and makeup, you guys.' -Troian Bellisario

If I'm doing a play, 30 to 40 percent of the people that come to the stage door have pictures of 'Alien' for me to autograph. And usually, the photos are pretty gory ones. -John Hurt

Every writer has their rituals. For me, it's morning walks along the beach. And then, in my study I have a huge painting of the Black Madonna hung over my desk, and quite a few pictures of Mary around me for inspiration. -Sue Monk Kidd

It's not weird being recognised, but it's weird having to stop what you're doing to take pictures or sign something. But the fans are the reason you have your success, so it comes with the territory. -Chord Overstreet

Here is what I am not going to do: I am not going to go to a restaurant, take pictures of my food, download them, and call that a blog. That is beyond the pale. The Internet is such a bazaar of self-indulgences that I don't know why that particular one should bug me so much. But it really does. -Jonathan Dee

When you look at a film like 'The Ides of March' or 'Good Night, and Good Luck' even, those are really contained pictures. -Grant Heslov

My parents both work in publishing, and I was a bright, academic kind of kid, and I read a lot of books, and when you read a lot, I guess the muscle that gets exercised is where you can hear the voices in your head. You can turn words into pictures and into sounds and into colours and smells. -Harry Lloyd

I think that now that we are seeing multimedia types of productions with videos and pictures and human beings performing the acts that animals used to perform, such as in Cirque du Soleil and other traveling troops, there is no need to parade animals around anymore in cages for personal gratification. -Montel Williams

I was an only child. I needed an alternative to family life – to real life, you could almost say – and cartoons, pictures in a book, the animated movies, seemed to provide it. -John Updike

My transition from wanting to be a cartoonist to wanting to be a writer may have come about through that friendly opposition, that even-handed pairing, of pictures and words. -John Updike

I don't smile a lot in my pictures. I'm always so… grim. -Michael Douglas

When I was working on pictures with my father, there were a couple leading ladies to whom I wish I'd expressed how I felt rather than being too cool or too shy. -Michael Douglas

All the pictures I do are contemporary. I've sort of discovered I haven't really been into science fiction or period pictures. And so, in that vein, psychological thrillers play a big part. -Michael Douglas

'Five Easy Pieces,' 'Easy Rider' – those are indie pictures; those were not studio pictures. They had relationships with studio distribution, but they were indies. -Michael Douglas

I've just kind of been used to carrying movies. I look back and I'm just used to being in every single scene in a lot of pictures. -Michael Douglas

I've always tried to live in the future and think about things and how to make things better. If you have great-grandchildren around, and their pictures are looking at you, well, that's the future. -George P. Shultz

For me, the brand of the camera is not the most important thing. I think you can take good pictures with the camera on your phone. -Anja Niedringhaus

I love hotel rooms, so I take pictures of the room and the way out and the lobby, the food and drink. -Geoffrey Zakarian

When I do period work, I really like to read about the period as much as I like to look at pictures because sometimes the written word is much better at conveying what their lives were really like and how much they had and where their clothes came from. Because, a lot of time, people dressed in their Sunday best to pose for a picture. -Colleen Atwood

I wanted to get into art. I did some neon stuff. I worked in, not computer-generated, but computer manipulation of pictures. -Giorgio Moroder

I never really felt free to talk a lot about my family life because I don't want to sacrifice anybody else's privacy. If you look through the archives, you will see, for example, no pictures of my children. That is not because I don't love them. I think I've been a really good dad; at least, I try to be. -Scott Turow

When I finish a first draft, I often look back at first chapters I wrote and laugh at them. They're like pictures of yourself in middle school. You're embarrassed to see them. -Scott Westerfeld

It was the winter of war, in 1939. It felt completely pointless to try to create pictures… I suddenly felt an urge to write down something that was to begin with 'Once upon a time.' -Tove Jansson

I made some good pictures, and I made some bad ones. I wasn't trying to build an image, though; I was trying to build a life for myself. -Sal Mineo

Public officials insult our intelligence and our goodwill when they paint rosy pictures about budgets, jobs, bipartisanship, and transparency, and alter their positions on issues simply to keep collecting their paycheck by never disagreeing or disappointing anyone. -Wendy Long

In all our perceptions, from vision to hearing, to the pictures we build of people's character, our unconscious mind starts from whatever objective data is available to us – usually spotty – and helps to shape and construct the more complete picture we consciously perceive. -Leonard Mlodinow

I would never deny the importance of the media, but I wouldn't go out of the way to splash my pictures all over town. I'd rather let my work do the talking. -Amisha Patel

When I was doing 'Smile,' I was looking back at pictures of myself and going, 'Thank goodness I couldn't do the sprayed-bangs thing! Everybody's so embarrassed by that hairstyle now, but I was never cool enough to pull it off!' -Raina Telgemeier

I never want to make a child worried or afraid, and I don't think I do. My pictures are born from the belief that children are far more capable and aware of social complexities than we give them credit for. -Anthony Browne

Picture books are being marginalised. I get the feeling children are being pushed away from picture books earlier and earlier and being told to look at 'proper' books, which means books without pictures. -Anthony Browne

What excites me about picture books is the gap between pictures and words. Sometimes the pictures can tell a slightly different story or tell more about the story, about how someone is thinking or feeling. -Anthony Browne

Picture books are for everybody at any age, not books to be left behind as we grow older. The best ones leave a tantalising gap between the pictures and the words, a gap that is filled by the reader's imagination, adding so much to the excitement of reading a book. -Anthony Browne

Some of my earliest work was in comics. I tend to think in pictures and always like to write scenes possessing the dynamic you find in comics. -Michael Moorcock

I'm no actor, and I've got 64 pictures to prove it. -Victor Mature

I shall produce nothing that will offend the proprieties, whether applied to children or grownups. My pictures are turned out with clean hands and, therefore, with a clear conscience which, like virtue, is its own reward. -Fatty Arbuckle

How did I become a star? I don't know how it happened. When I look at my old pictures, I can't tell how it happened! -Fatty Arbuckle

I don't know why people are so obsessed with finding out stuff before the movie comes out. It's so much more fun to just go. I mean, I don't do that. I don't go looking for stuff that I'm interested in, you know, to try and find out pictures and what the movie's about. It's so much more fun to be surprised. -Oscar Isaac

It's such an awkward, strange thing that was concocted, to have auditions. Back in the old days, you'd just have a screen test, and they'd say, 'Oh, you seem natural in front of the camera,' and you'd just go do 10 pictures for Paramount or whatever. -Vinessa Shaw

For me in my twenties, working in Hollywood was confusing in that the differences between what was fiction and what was nonfiction seemed to blur in my mind. Everything became a visual memory for me. I carried my Leica camera, giving opportunity to take pictures from my view. -John Van Hamersveld

I guess I don't come to the work without baggage. I have an idea of what I want my pictures to look like in my head, and if they don't match up, I find it frustrating. -Graeme Base

I love picture books – with picture books, you can use words and pictures as a double act, even tell two different versions of a story at the same time. -Mini Grey

Because even very young people are expert readers of pictures, you can convey very complex and subtle messages through pictures that you'd need loads of words to explain. Making a picture book is also a bit like making your own film – and you can make anything you want happen, however impossible! -Mini Grey

Of course, we wore silly outfits, the pictures were corny, and some people still focus on that. But ABBA wasn't a big intellectual thing. We were a pop group. -Bjorn Ulvaeus

I'm the world's worst after-dinner speaker. I need pictures to respond to. I was the voice of the lottery balls once and got the sack. -Sid Waddell

If, at the end of the day, I can look back and see pictures of all the characters I've played, and there's a smorgasbord of weirdos and interesting, odd, different characters, I'd be so happy. -Joel Edgerton

I was raised Catholic, and I remember in all the pamphlets and pictures we'd look at, Jesus was basically blonde with blue eyes. He kind of looked like Jared Leto. -Joel Edgerton

For my second and third pictures, I won Academy Awards. Nothing worse could have happened to me. -Luise Rainer

As a little boy of 3 or 4, I became lame. Something was wrong with my right leg. There are pictures of me being pulled around in a little wagon. The doctors didn't know what to do. So my nanny took me to the miraculous Madonna at Sacro Monte in Varese, the priest blessed me, and I walked. -Gian Carlo Menotti

I've never been interested in philosophy, but some of Jung's ideas seem useful in helping people understand pictures and so forth. -Sigmar Polke

By making pictures, you learn the many different properties of photography. I use those properties differently than, say, an advertising agency would, but we're both operating in the same reality. A face painted by Picasso occupies the same reality as a portrait by Stieglitz. -Sigmar Polke

I write at a desk. I have a room of my own where I can have my computer. I write in there, usually directly onto my computer. It used to be the room where my two sons used to sleep with the dog and the cat, but now it's all mine. It has pictures of art from my books on the walls. -Eve Bunting

I first started writing historical fiction in the late '70s and kept pictures of Kathleen Woodiwiss and Rosemary Rogers on my refrigerator until my first book was published by Avon in 1982. The biggest advantage of this genre for me is that it allows me to blend fact and fiction. -Virginia Henley

I come from a heavy-lidded people. My family, you'll see pictures of them, and it's the same thing all the way back to Scotland. -French Stewart

I do stupid stuff like that: I'll call my wife from the road, send her pictures of glaciers. -Adam Ferrara

I can paint pictures, but I cannot rule men. -Fra Angelico

I don't know; I don't really look at pictures of me when I'm in public. -Blake Lively

I looked at Rembrandt and Superman, Matisse and Bugs Bunny, and began to make my own pictures. -Mordicai Gerstein

I collect pictures of adorable puppies on my phone. I have little room for anything else. -Cory Michael Smith

The early pictures of me you see online, in just T-shirts and hoodies – I'm still that guy with the hoodie. But what you don't get to see in most of those pics is that I had these red clogs on that had, like, eyeballs on the ends of them that I drew on. That speaks a little bit more to what I was going after, stylistically. -Ariel Pink

We all have our vanities. The retouching magazines like 'Vogue' do is the professional version of the retouching we do when we, for example, apply Instagram filters to the pictures we take and share on our social networks. -Roxane Gay

Some things that I write, you'll see a page with cartoon pictures or a drawing of a car – like a Ford – or a flag. I still do it on an occasion when a word is strange to me. -Andrae Crouch

It's childish, but it still gives me great pleasure to see high-res pictures everyone told me would be impossible. -Stefan Hell

Obviously I know if you're putting yourself out there, saying, 'Hey! Listen to my music!,' with pictures of yourself in the magazines, then people are going to judge you. 'I hate her music. I hate her hair. I hate her production. I hate her videos.' Fine: don't care. That's the great thing about art: it's not for everyone. -FKA twigs

It's embarrassing to tell you how much my friends make fun of me. Seriously, when you have a doll made of your face, it's ridiculous how creative your friends can get… pictures, videos, little animated cartoons that they've made. -Channing Tatum

My worst hairstyle was a bowl cut parted down the middle. It was the '90s. It was what you did. I had that from 4th grade until freshman year in high school. I'm glad the pictures exist. I had great hair back then. -Chris Evans

You get involved with a studio, and optional pictures and sequel options and that sort of thing are becoming part and parcel with the roles they're handing out. -Jai Courtney

I do mostly Southern landscapes. I do beautiful old barns that are falling down, and beautiful trees reflecting in the water. My lovely wife Dorothy and I travel quite a bit, so I take pictures of different things that inspire me to come home, when I come home here in North Carolina, into my art studio and paint these things. -James Best

I really enjoy being with my fans. They offer great support and encouragement to me. I like signing autographs and posing for pictures. -Lexi Thompson

I'm pretty much on all social media, but Instagram is the coolest, and I use it the most because I take a lot of pictures and I like to post them, but I link them all to each one. -Lexi Thompson

Certainly I have made comments on American society with the various pictures and have done about nine antiwar paintings. But I did them because I was incorporating my feelings into my work. -James Rosenquist

I decided to make pictures of fragments, images that would spill off the canvas instead of recede into it like a medicine cabinet. I wanted to find images that were in a 'nether-nether-land': things that were a little out of style but hadn't reached the point of nostalgia. -James Rosenquist

I haven't been in the Louvre for twenty years. It doesn't interest me because I have these doubts about the value of the judgments which decided that all these pictures should be presented to the Louvre instead of others which weren't even considered. -Marcel Duchamp

My mum was a dancer when she was a kid. Then my parents met and eventually had an art gallery; my dad taught himself how to frame pictures, and then he was a curator at an art gallery in the city I'm from. I'm an only child. -Ari Millen

The wonderful thing about the cartoon form is it's a combination of words and pictures. You don't have to choose, and the contribution of the two often winds up being greater than the sum of its parts. -Roz Chast

I want to go to Italy and France; those are my two places. And I really want to go to Greece. I've seen so many pictures on Airbnb that make me think I should be living there. I could eat great salads and be on a boat. -Mary Lambert

I've done my best to avoid B pictures. -Robert Preston

Some of the pictures in 'The Human Face of Big Data' will bring tears to your eyes; others are so surprising or memorable that you just have to show them to your friends and family. -Rick Smolan

My dad was actually against me being a photographer. He thought it was a dead-end job and that you end up doing baby pictures and weddings. -Rick Smolan

The pictures I make come from every blink of my lashes. -Sam Taylor-Johnson

Photographing friends means that there's a spontaneity to the images. I have a lot of love for my friends and family, and I love taking cool pictures of them. -Suki Waterhouse

The way things have changed. The pictures in the womb they have now. They're just amazing. They're just like a snapshot of a person. -Amy Heckerling

Everyone takes pictures, so you need to have your own opinion. -Rene Burri

One of these days, I'm going to publish a book of all the pictures I did not take. It is going to be a huge hit. -Rene Burri

I suddenly had to chase after my pictures… Pictures are like taxis during rush hour – if you're not fast enough, someone else will get there first. -Rene Burri

There's more noise that comes with wearable computing, things that let us take pictures every 30 seconds as we walk around living our lives, and a huge number more photos per person will exist. -Robert Scoble

When I graduated, I felt a little burned out on taking pictures after so many years of churning out so many for classes. -Gia Coppola

My thing with fans is, it's always about being really good to them and taking the time to take every picture. If there are 300 people, you should take 300 pictures – you shouldn't take 250 because then fifty people will go home sad. Why would you do that? -Ansel Elgort

My tools, my medium, include pictures and live actors. -Gavin Hood

When I'm writing, I'm creating the story and its character with words. I'm thinking about what the pictures will be like, but I never begin to sketch. The pictures are all in my head. -Kevin Henkes

The exciting thing about doing art for someone else's story is how I can translate their world through pictures, and that's always a pretty big challenge. -Tony DiTerlizzi

There are many challenges I face while working on a book. Working within deadlines and schedules is certainly one of the bigger ones for me. I want to create the best possible book I can for my readers with words and pictures – and that takes time to get it just right. -Tony DiTerlizzi

A typical day in my writing life starts with looking at pictures of real estate online for at least 20 minutes. If I happen to be actually in the market for a house, I do this for 40 minutes. Then I walk my dog, come back home, and tell myself I can look at real estate for another five minutes. -Meghan Daum

I learned long ago, back with 'Lover Revealed,' that my job is to sit at the computer, shut up and type. Otherwise? The pictures and the voices go away! -Jessica Bird

I guess there was a little bit of a slight rebellion, maybe a little bit of a renegade desire that made me realize at some point in my adolescence that I really liked pictures that told stories of things – genre paintings, historical paintings – the sort of derivatives we get in contemporary society. -Kara Walker

News, after all, is a spin of words and pictures. It's a kind of music. There are beats in a newscast, a newspaper story. Ed Murrow sounded like Ed Murrow. Huntley and Brinkley sounded different. Anderson Cooper, different still. -Robert Krulwich

My job is to take the pictures, communicate a message, to bring those images to the greater public through whatever publication I'm working for. My job is really to be a messenger, and that's what I've been doing. -Lynsey Addario

I live in a country where I'd say nine out of ten people know me when I walk through the streets. There's people taking pictures, there's tabloids trying to make up stories. I'm used to that. The same thing when I'm in Australia or the U.K.: I get stopped. -Trevor Noah

My dance teacher will show me pictures of girls who are rhythmic gymnasts, and they are super skinny. But I don't want to be too skinny. I think that looks a little gross when you are dancing. You don't want to be a scrawny, bony thing. -Maddie Ziegler

I came to the plain fields of Ohio with pictures painted by Hollywood movies and the works of Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. None of them had much to say, if at all, about Dayton, Ohio. -Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Most visitors to Amsterdam will wander into the red-light district out of sheer curiosity. The narrow streets are mostly safe day and night – just don't try to take pictures of the women working in the windows. -David Hewson

I have not taken inspiration from the fashion shows. I don't even really go to too many of the fashion shows – and have not for 15 years – because I don't want to be inspired by the same things as everyone else. If everyone is inspired by the same things, then of course, you all do the same pictures. -Peter Lindbergh

I show elements of the set in my pictures because it's not real. When I see movies, I often love the 'making of' more than the movie itself. It's not so final. When you have a woman just standing there, it doesn't mean much. -Peter Lindbergh

The photographer, even in fashion and portraiture, has to have a standpoint. It's important to know what you stand for, no? Most people just take pictures, but they stand for nothing. They follow trends and don't know why. -Peter Lindbergh

When the mind has once formed the habit of holding cheerful, happy, prosperous pictures, it will not be easy to form the opposite habit. -Orison Swett Marden

If the paying public demands naturalistic art, then an artist can use his skills to produce such pictures – but these are to be clearly distinguished from the artist's own art. -Piet Mondrian

It is not important to make many pictures but that I have one picture right. -Piet Mondrian

How many years and how many pictures does it take to win the confidence of Paramount? How many years before my fellow workers say, 'I know he is doing his best?' -Preston Sturges

It was actually the enormous risks I took with my pictures, skating right up to the edge of non-acceptance, that paid off so handsomely. -Preston Sturges

The great poet is a great artist. He is painter and sculptor. The greatest pictures and statues have been painted and chiseled with words. They outlast all others. -Robert Green Ingersoll

Every industry has standards. For example, the motion picture camera, there are 2 or 3 film formats with a number of brackets and number of speed, a shooting speed that is standard. If we didn't have that, then some motion pictures will play back too slowly, and people would talk very slowly, and it will be bizarre. -Jeffrey Zeldman

The only thing that surprised me about 'Lincoln' is that most of the critics who reviewed the film seem not to have grasped what should have been apparent right from the start, which is that 'Lincoln' is at bottom a play with pictures, not a screenplay. -Terry Teachout

I set up playdates, and I'm a morning greeter for the car-pool line. I also make albums with the family photos. When the kids get older and go on their way, we'll have all those pictures to revel in. -David Gregory

When I read books, I actually really love imagining whomever I want to in the character's role. I get such vivid pictures on my own that that is a big part of the experience for me. -Kristin Gore

I trust the pictures to tell what I want to say. -Peter Sis

I'm into horror pictures because I love the fear of being alone in the dark, and I'd recommend that to any composer who wants to work in this genre. -Christopher Young

I remember the first time I went out on the street to shoot pictures. I was in downtown Philadelphia, and I just took a walk and started making contact with people and photographing them, and I thought, 'I love this. This is what I want to do forever.' There was never another question. -Mary Ellen Mark

I don't like gimmicky pictures; I've always hated them. I like pictures that are very clear and clean, whether you're a great street photographer – somebody like Friedlander or Winogrand or Cartier-Bresson – or whether you're a portraitist, like Irving Penn. -Mary Ellen Mark

It's good that everyone has an opportunity to take pictures, the chance to be a photographer. Some are good, too. But the bad thing is that it's very, very difficult to take a great picture. Everyone can take a good picture – even a child – but it's hard to make a great one. -Mary Ellen Mark

We live in a crazily youth-orientated world nowadays. It's a trickle-down thing. We see pictures of lithe, attractive celebrity couples such as Brad and Angelina or the Beckhams cavorting around, covered in tattoos, stomachs as flat as the singing in early 'X Factor' rounds. -John Niven

Wherever there are words, let there be pictures. -Chris Riddell

My youngest son becomes an award-winning nature photographer, and I cannot resist writing poems to his pictures. My daughter loves to cook, though I do not. Yet together, we write a cookbook with fairy tales. And now a second. -Jane Yolen

I told myself, 'When I grow up, I want to make pictures that can inspire and nourish people.' Immediately, when I was 10, I started photographing nature. I built a darkroom. My first really good darkroom, not just down in the cellar, was when I was 14. -Bill Atkinson

I have got pictures all around the rooms I sit in. I have got a very mad picture of a dog standing on a black thing on a piece of rope. It was drawn and painted by a Romanian poet who was under house arrest, and it is terrific. -Jennifer Johnston

To me, cinema is not a movie or a TV screen, and it's not a seat in a building versus one in your living room. It's the art of motion pictures. -Ted Sarandos

I love the interplay between words and pictures. I love the fact that in comics, your pictures are acting like words, presenting themselves to be read. -Gene Luen Yang

Dichotomies are an inherent part of comics, aren't they? Comics are both pictures and words. They blend time and space. Many feature characters with dual identities like Bruce Wayne/Batman. Cartoonists also tend to live dichotomous lives because many of us have day jobs. -Gene Luen Yang

I shot images of everything I could find over the course of a year. I would go all over the world and take pictures. In a day, I could easily take thousands. -Jon Oringer
