I was so shy when I was younger. When I first went to Liverpool I didn't say a word for a year. -Ian Rush

Mainly it's the parents who remember me. But the kids today, what they do is go and Google you. A lot of them turn up and they know everything about me. They say: 'You scored 346 goals' or 'You wore the No9 shirt for Liverpool.' -Ian Rush

I've done my coaching badges, I've got my Pro Licence, but I enjoy what I'm doing now. I'm also the elite performance director of the Welsh FA. The main thing for me was always Liverpool Football Club and my country, Wales – and I'm lucky enough to still be involved with both of them. -Ian Rush

I realised I'd been spoiled at Liverpool. We were used to winning. In Italy I grew up as a person. I didn't enjoy the football, mind. It was very defensive, but I became a better player because of the work I had to do around the box. Off the pitch, I learned about what to eat and what to drink to be successful, and I learned about life. -Ian Rush

We're as clever as we think we are, but we'll be a lot cleverer when we learn to use not just one brain but to pool huge numbers of brains. We're at a level technologically where we can share information and think collectively about our problems. We do it in science all the time – there's no reason why we can't do it in other endeavors. -Lewis Thomas

We have an obligation to spread amateur baseball both at home and abroad. Building up the game at all levels – Little League, Babe Ruth Leagues, the colleges – is in our own self-interest. That's where the pool of talent is – and also of fans. -A. Bartlett Giamatti

I'm born in Liverpool, I'm a Liverpool supporter. -Steven Gerrard

I'm really happy in Liverpool and the club feels such a family. I feel great, I have a nice house and my family have been here from the beginning so they could help me. -Royston Drenthe

Both the velodrome and the Commonwealth swimming pool are open to the public and are frequently used by local schools and the local community. Over the last six years young people have been inspired to take up swimming and cycling more seriously; some of them are now coming through as Olympic champions or hopefuls. -Lucy Powell

What I want to do is tell stories about normal people in the American suburbs. I don't write the book where it's a conspiracy reaching the prime minister; I don't write the book with the big serial killer who lops off heads. My setting is a very placid pool of suburbia, family life. And within that I can make pretty big splashes. -Harlan Coben

And perfect happiness? Man, that's a… the pool is about 92 degrees, the Jacuzzi is about 102 and an avocado farm. -Jamie Foxx

I'm in semi-retirement, but what am I going to retire to? I don't ride horses, I don't golf anymore. I shoot a game of pool every now and then. -Pat Morita

I am a big soccer fan, and a very big Liverpool fan. -Clive Owen

At one point my dad called me and said, 'You have always been a great salesman. I think it's time you come home and sell swimming pools.' -Courteney Cox

I get obsessed with decorations and decorating the house. I keep it tasteful outside, but when you get inside it is a bit like Blackpool illuminations, I go bonkers! -Johnny Vegas

I was what they call a pool hustler. That's absolutely true. For long periods of time I got by, barely skimmed by, just playing pool. -George Miller

My days are jam-packed with carpools, classroom assistance, tending to chickens, dogs and seven acres of olive trees! -Carre Otis

Whatever Romney's failings, he certainly doesn't suggest that the United States is teetering on the brink of a moral cesspool. -John Podhoretz

Summer is a great time to visit art museums, which offer the refreshing rinse of swimming pools – only instead of cool water, you immerse yourself in art. -Jerry Saltz

I detest politics, to be honest with you. It's a cesspool. And I don't think I would fare well in that cesspool because I don't believe in political correctness and I certainly don't believe in dishonesty. -Ben Carson

I think a lot of people have a vision of L.A. in which TV executives and movie directors plan their latest productions by the swimming pool. -Bruno Tonioli

There's a certain thought process about actors that they are in Hollywood and they sit around pools and get suntans and just get offered jobs. -Chris Klein

I felt like high school for me was like a big whirlpool of me trying to figure out what was OK for me to do. -Donald Glover

When I stopped doing ballet, I started training in the pool. I would do my barre exercises in the water, because that prevents injuries. -Summer Glau

I believe that we are still hovering around the realm of Asians playing all types of Asians. I do not see that changing any time soon just because there is a limited pool of Asian actors. -Steven Yeun

I think the world's a little smaller these days. With the Internet and the availability of people, the pool of English speaking actors – not just American actors, but Brits, Australians, New Zealanders, Irish. We're all up for grabs. -Sonya Walger

My kids, they're like nine or ten years old right now so you give 'em responsibilities just to keep them up on things. It ain't just all about getting on the skateboard or putting your Heelys on, and swimming in the pool all the time. You gotta do stuff like wash dishes, take the trash out, feed the dog. -Big Boi

My favorite way to unwind is to go for a walk with my husband and the dog at the end of the working day, then we go to our local health club for a swim and to sit by the pool and read for a while. -Jacqueline Winspear

A theory of creativity is actually just a metaphor. A pool of ideas, a well of memories, a voice. -Jane Smiley

Small businesses pay 18 percent more than big businesses for health care, the same health care, just because they're small and they have too small a pool of risk. -Karen Mills

In L.A. you live in a big city, but you feel like you're in the countryside. For example, I can be at home in the swimming pool and be five minutes from everything. -Wolfgang Puck

If it's nice out, I swim pretty much every day for about half an hour. I have a great pool; it's very private and not too many people use it. -Yunjin Kim

I thought of America as Natalie Wood and Bob Wagner sprawled on the edge of a Hollywood swimming pool biting into the same red apple. -Bharati Mukherjee

I'll tell you why I like writing: it's just jumping into a pool. I get myself into a kind of trance. I engage the world, but it's also wonderful to just escape. I try to find the purities out of the confusion. It's pretty old-fashioned, but it's fun. -Barry Hannah

Liverpool was an industrial town, a poor town. The people fought hard for what they wanted to achieve and there was a hunger there, and that hunger has remained with the musicians. -Pete Best

My grandmother was a kind of Scarsdale, New York, society woman, best known in her day as the author of the 1959 book 'Growing Your Own Way: An Informal Guide for Teen-Agers' – this despite being a person whose parenting style made Joan Crawford's wire hangers look like pool noodles. -Sloane Crosley

By the time the children go to bed, I am as drained as any mother who has spent her day working, car pooling, building Lego castles and shopping for the precisely correct soccer cleat. -Ayelet Waldman

Actually I was born in 1940 in Blackpool because my family lived in Manchester but Manchester was being bombed. So my mother was sent away to Blackpool to have me and then went back; so I lived my first eighteen years in Manchester and then emigrated to the States when I was eighteen. -John Mahoney

In the age of globalisation, pooled sovereignty means more power, not less. -Jose Manuel Barroso

As a performing group, the Beatles began by playing old rock favorites, for dancing, to tough audiences in Liverpool and Hamburg. When they began writing seriously, they discovered that they couldn't compose in the early American rock tradition. -Jon Landau

The first album, for better or for worse, was done over from the ages of 17-22, with a couple of different producers. Some of it was recorded in an old swimming pool, some of it was recorded in a synagogue – it kind of was all over the place. -Florence Welch

My parents had five children in six years and one week, meaning that my mom was pregnant for most of the '60s and driving carpools for most of the '70s. When we were young, she dressed us alike so she could pick us out in crowds: identical skirts for the four girls with the color-coordinated pants for my brother. -Christine Pelosi

Family is very important to me because that is the footprint we perpetuate. That is, the ripple in the water when the rock first impacts the pool, and it is those waves, that energy that one produces, that determines our direction. -Larry Wilcox

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

I am what they call a chubby-skinny guy. I appear to be normal and have the look of an in-shape man, but if we were to go to a pool party I would go with my shirt on. -Adam Pally

When you have a natural genetic tan developed over centuries and many generations, the idea of soaking up rays by the pool has never made sense. -Abraham Verghese

As parents, we need to send our kids back to 'old-fashioned' outdoor summer camps, which have been on the decline as the demand for sports and academics-based camps has risen. We need to fight budget cuts to public parks programs and resist closures of public swimming pools and playgrounds. -Darell Hammond

Public swimming pools, recreation centers, summer reading programs, youth jobs programs – they are all shutting their doors. And they are all facilities and programs relied on most heavily by low-income children. -Darell Hammond

A lot of boys in my poker circle are mathematicians who play on probability. I don't have that kind of brain, so I rely on instinct. But I recently found out that poker and cards in general go way back in my family gene pool. -Natalie Dormer

I love to play games. Anything that is competitive. I love to play darts, shoot pool, any video game or board game, anything like that I am all about. For me is more about spending time with somebody, hanging out and enjoying yourself. -Casey James

Living in a small Italian hilltown, and having lived in a small town in south Georgia, I understand that you can recognize a family gene pool by the lift of an eyebrow, or the length of a neck, or a way of walking. -Frances Mayes

Self-builders are the adrenalin junkies of the DIY world; it's the equivalent of base-jumping off the top of the Gherkin to land in a paddling pool. -Kevin McCloud

Though Lexington is not a small town, it sometimes feels like one, with circles of acquaintance overlapping once, then again; the person you meet by chance at the library or the pool may turn out to be the best friend of your down-the-street neighbor. Maybe that's why people are so friendly here, so willing to be unhurried. -Kim Edwards

When civilization takes a nose dive, how can you look away? You've got to be there. You've got to be at the bottom of the swimming pool taking notes. -Gary Shteyngart

My father was very bright. My mother had enormous drive. Put that together, and that's my gene pool. -Stephen A. Schwarzman

When I wrote 'The Interestings,' I wanted to let time unspool, to give the book the feeling of time passing. I had to allow myself the freedom to move back and forth in time freely, and to trust that readers would accept this. -Meg Wolitzer

The great thing about coming from where I come from – Liverpool and my family – is that we're very close. I have a great relationship with my siblings and their kids. -David Morrissey

Liverpool has always made me brave, choice-wise. It was never a city that criticised anyone for taking a chance. -David Morrissey

I owe my mum a sense of family. She has kept our family together. I have two brothers and a sister, and they all live a stone's throw away from each other in Liverpool. -David Morrissey

Liverpool will always be my home. -David Morrissey

When comics came along in the 1930s there was a talent pool waiting. And one reason is so many areas were closed to Jews. Colleges, advertising agencies, many of the corporations – the doors that were closed led to the one that was open. -Jerry Robinson

Number one house rule of pool: don't lose in your own house. -Mark Zupan

My family are too grounded, and I will go home to visit. I always need my dose of Liverpool to keep me grounded. -Rebecca Ferguson

Bathtubs, pools, water – to me, it's a very essential part of being grounded and sensual and feeling yourself. -Andre Balazs

On really hot days, I try to motivate friends and family to come into the pool for an aqua jogging session which I teach. Aqua jogging is a great way to avoid the impact of regular walking or jogging on land. This is especially beneficial for those who have joint pain or who are healing from an injury. -Dylan Lauren

There is a pool of references in New York and Los Angeles that are almost exclusively drawn from the media, from the world of television and advertising. -Marshall Brickman

Washington's a cesspool of money. -Stewart Udall

Wherever I am in the world, my perfect day begins with waking up and heading to the beach or the pool or somewhere I can be semi-comatose. I just wake up and go to the sun. -Zaha Hadid

Dead bodies do get a grayish blue/purple hue because blood pools in the capillaries and the body starts to decompose. It's not smurf blue, but it's not a pleasant shade. -Ann Hood

Writing used to be my hobby, but now that it's my job, I have no hobby – except watching TV and laying around the pool reading 'U.S. Weekly.' I have tried many hobbies, such as knitting, Pilates, ballet, yoga, and guitar, but none of them have taken. -Meg Cabot

When you're writing, it's all up to you, and you don't have to make any compromises. And when you're directing, there's this intense pleasure you get from working with all these really talented people, and pooling the efforts towards a common goal. I like all the aspects of film-making. -Henry Selick

When I'm not working, I dress like a surfer. I look like I'm going to come into your house and clean your pool. -Alec Baldwin

I read the 'Deadpool' series back in the '90s. I'm not, like, a huge comic book reader, per say, though. I'll check out 'Archie' when I'm in the grocery line, but that's about it. -Ryan Reynolds

I have a low tolerance for people who complain about things but never do anything to change them. This led me to conclude that the single largest pool of untapped natural resources in this world is human good intentions that are never translated into actions. -Cindy Gallop

I never set out to intentionally hurt any player and never enticed any teammate to intentionally hurt another player. I also never put any money into a bounty pool or helped to create a bounty pool intended to pay out money for injuring other players. -Jonathan Vilma

Infrastructure spending does not create immediate jobs, and more than half of those jobs will pull from the pool of the already employed. -Mark McKinnon

Ah, my dad's whistle. On holidays when I was a kid, we would all be off in the rock pools along the beach. When it came time to go, we'd hear the whistle and we'd all come running. Like dogs! -Kate Winslet

Carpooling is important for urban density, air pollution and other reasons, but carpooling is not the kind of thing that actually changes the energy equation. -Clay Shirky

I was raised in a family where vulnerability was barely tolerated: no training wheels on our bicycles, no goggles in the pool, just get it done. And so I grew up not only with discomfort about my own vulnerability, I didn't care for it in other people either. -Brene Brown

I do a lot of swimming, both in the ocean and in the pool. -Catherine Zeta-Jones

A great advantage of a large corporation is supposed to be the large pool of talent in which its leaders can find and groom high achievers and successors. -Margaret Heffernan

If two very different people pool their DNA, they'll create more genetic variety, and their young will come to the job of parenting with a wider array of skills. -Helen Fisher

I could float in the pool for hours, just letting the water carry me. -Jill Scott

My family are from Liverpool, so I have some twang there – I have a Midlands accent, and I was raised about an hour north of London, so my voice is a mess. Although, to American ears, it sounds like the crisp language of a queen's butler. -John Oliver

Contrary to slanderous Eastern opinion, much of Iowa is not flat, but rolling hills country with a lot of timber, a handsome and imaginative landscape, crowded with constant small changes of scene and full of little creeks winding with pools where shiners, crappies and catfish hover. -Paul Engle

Our pool is outdoors, but it's heated, and I've got one of those machines that produces waves you have to swim against; like a jogging treadmill, really, only it's in water. Basically, it means you can have a small pool, swim for miles, and get nowhere. -Rupert Penry-Jones

There are so many fun charity festivals in the Hamptons. We enjoy so many fun events for kids such as Kidsfest. We also go to Super Saturday. We like to chill out and go out by the pool. We do things that are fun for kids and good for charity. -Kelly Rutherford

In 'Swimming Pool,' all the colors are very warm, sunny, the pool and all that. In 'Love Crime,' everything is so cold, and it's all inside skyscrapers. -Ludivine Sagnier

I'm not a big one for sitting by the pool doing nothing. -Ashley Jensen

I'm always in favor of more glamour. I embarrass my children, I think. I am the lady in feathers in the car pool line. -Mia Sara

I'm a mixed race lad from Liverpool. I get to play a lot of hard characters, and some people perceive that's what I'm like, but it's great for me 'cos they're always the most interesting characters. -Stephen Graham

In Einstein's equation, time is a river. It speeds up, meanders, and slows down. The new wrinkle is that it can have whirlpools and fork into two rivers. So, if the river of time can be bent into a pretzel, create whirlpools and fork into two rivers, then time travel cannot be ruled out. -Michio Kaku

The flute was an alternative to being a small fish in an increasingly bigger pool filled with a number of great guitar players. -Ian Anderson

My family is from Liverpool, so I have some of those vowel sounds, I've got the slack tone of someone from Birmingham, and then I was raised in Bedford, which is just north of London. So my accent, if it's possible, makes even less sense to a Brit than to an American. -John Oliver

My preference is swimming in the sea. I find the sea is more liberating, wild and good fun rather than plodding up and down a pool. -Jo Brand

I don't want to sit around by the pool luxuriating with a margarita. That's just not what I want to do. -Nicolas Cage

My earliest memories are sitting on the beach at Blackpool, and I know that if I went back, it would be horrible. I know what Blackpool's like – it's nothing like I imagined it was as a child. -Robert Smith

Whether it's pool or Ping Pong, I can't stand to have my kids beat me. Especially Ping Pong! And when they beat me, they just needle the devil out of me. That's fine. I'd rather have that than let them win a shallow victory. -Jack Nicklaus

In a high-IQ job pool, soft skills like discipline, drive and empathy mark those who emerge as outstanding. -Daniel Goleman

You cannot hear the name Martin Luther King, Jr., and not think of death. You might hear the words 'I have a dream,' but they will doubtlessly only serve to underscore an image of a simple motel balcony, a large man made small, a pool of blood. For as famous as he may have been in life, it is – and was – death that ultimately defined him. -Michael Eric Dyson

We all have a personal pool of quicksand inside us where we begin to sink and need friends and family to find us and remind us of all the good that has been and will be. -Regina Brett

When the soul, through its own fault… becomes rooted in a pool of pitch-black, evil smelling water, it produces nothing but misery and filth. -Saint Teresa of Avila

I do pool exercises, like weightlifting but underwater. I walk, I swim… I'm pretty fit for an old bloke. -Eric Idle

I'm like a little boy from Virginia. I'm a backpacker. In my head, I'm left of centre. I come from the pool of weirdoes. -Pharrell Williams

Liverpool people are famous for liking clothes and fashion; they are very social and lively people, and we know that they like clothes. -Vivienne Westwood

I feel like the one insight that's extremely comforting to me about the world is that we all share the same pool of emotion that we draw from. -Abigail Washburn

I'm no ethnomusicologist. There is a connection between the five-note scale used both in traditional Chinese music and the blues, but I don't really understand it. All I know is, whenever I play with Chinese musicians, we seem to belong to the same musical gene pool. -Abigail Washburn

I can't play soccer, and I'm not a great swimmer. I won't drown, but you won't see me doing laps in a pool. -Michelle Obama

I can be described as many things, but no description of me is complete without saying 'Englishman.' My parents were from Liverpool and emigrated to Canada before I was born. -Mike Myers

More than ever, the world needs good engineers. However, the pool of talent is shrinking not growing. -Dean Kamen

England really is the birthplace, the heart and soul of football. If Barcelona had Liverpool's fans, or Arsenal's, or United's, we'd have won 20 Champions Leagues, hahaha! -Xavi

The second I walk onto the set and I know that there's a camera and I know that there's a David Twohy behind that camera, there is zero pressure. There is just me jumping into a pool called 'Riddick.' It's the most free I am. It's like channeling something. -Vin Diesel

I think Marseille is probably a place like Liverpool, very vibrant and very tough. -Zinedine Zidane

If you watch a lot of television, the pacing, the quick cutting is so frenetic, but it doesn't always make it funnier. What I'm noticing is that when things are allowed to unspool more slowly, younger crowds really like it. They really appreciate it. -Conan O'Brien

Based on my pool of coached clients, 90% of the challenges for business owners exist in a lack of personal development. -Darren L Johnson

My family was going back to England to visit my mother's grandmother, who was very ill. We went up to Liverpool and I met my great-aunt, who was just a force of nature. She was an elocution teacher and a huge enthusiast for theater and the classics. I took her amateur acting class, and she was really impressed with me. -Kim Cattrall

I only really and truly fully relax on my own. Give me a sun lounger, a pool and a sea view, and I'm happy. -Miranda Hart

I have always wanted a swimming pool and never had one. -Joan Didion

A pool is water, made available and useful, and is, as such, infinitely soothing to the western eye. -Joan Didion

I was a short order cook in a pool hall in college. So, I am the fastest cook in the world. -Sharon Stone

I like the Hotel Costes, on rue Saint Honore, a boutique hotel near the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre and the Tuileries. I love the dark, moody decor as well as the fantastic scented, candlelit pool in the basement. -Alice Temperley

Someone once referred to modeling as being like winning the lottery gene pool. It's such an odd way to put things, but what is different about modelling is that the industry often picks you. -Erin O'Connor

There were several things a Yale freshman was supposed to be able to do. You had to demonstrate in the Olympic-size Yale pool that you could swim 50 yards or be inducted into swimming class. -Dick Cavett

Parenthood can be very rewarding, but let's face it, so are margaritas at the adults-only pool. -Jen Kirkman

I was bored at college, so I put $10 in a jukebox in this place where people played ping-pong and pool. I put in $10 of 'Jingle Bell Rock,' and this was back in the '90s, so it played 'Jingle Bell Rock,' like, 40 times in a row. It was just really fun to watch because after the fourth time, people were just losing-their-minds angry. -Kyle Dunnigan

It feels like I'm in a swimming pool, and I am constantly trying to stay above water. Sometimes I feel like I'm slipping, and you try to come up for air, and that's how it is when looking for the next role. -Kym Whitley

I want to communicate to the everyday person. I don't want to just roll around in my own avant-garde pool of coolness. -Bat for Lashes

The life of Liverpool is commerce; it is a city of warehouses and shops. -Katharine Lee Bates

I guess it turns out choosing your life partner from a group of men trying to get their break in show business by sitting around shirtless in a swimming pool while cameras watch around the clock isn't the path to a soulmate after all. -Willie Geist

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

If you let people own their land, they take care of it. That's why privately owned land is always taken care of, and the parks look like cesspools. Nobody takes care of what everybody owns. -Grover Norquist

I'm not looking for anything more than any other guy. I like a good smile. Pretty eyes. She has to be active, like not play-sports active, but she'll play air hockey, do some pool, go for rides on the Santa Monica Pier. I would much rather have fun with her than do the cool thing. -Mitchel Musso

Watching Republicans in Washington is like watching lemmings, if lemmings jumped into cesspools instead of off cliffs. -P. J. O'Rourke

To find a pool of lawyers from whom to choose, solicit referrals from other professionals you know or deal with – an accountant, banker or business leader. Check out Bar Association listings as well, and don't neglect Internet research. -Laura Wasser

In Nueva Esperanza, Honduras, community members pooled their resources and organized a local water committee that with CARE's technical guidance built a gravity-fed water system that now provides clean water directly to people's homes. -Helene D. Gayle

We have a huge tech following that do nothing but Digg tech stories, and then there's another pool of users that remove the tech section from their view of Digg, because you can go on and customize your own experience and remove sections you don't like. -Kevin Rose

OK, I'm not what you'd call 'wild.' But I'm no prude, either – I love to party, and I play a mean game of pool. -Shilpa Shetty

Rock pools, so-named because they have been hammered out of rocks at the ocean's edge, are one of Sydney's defining characteristics, along with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, though not as well known. -Raymond Bonner

I've gradually gained more confidence swimming for distance in the open sea, but I still return to the rock pools. -Raymond Bonner

Sydney's most famous beach is Bondi. At its southern end is Bondi Baths, an eight-lane, 50-meter saltwater pool built into the cliffs. -Raymond Bonner

My mom was on the United Way group that decides how to allocate the money and looks at all the different charities and makes the very hard decisions about where that pool of funds is going to go. -Bill Gates

The reason we have the stars twinkle at night is because the light is being kind of blurred by the atmosphere around the Earth. That is why the Hubble Space Telescope is so good, because it is above the atmosphere. So it is kind of like looking at the sun from the bottom of a swimming pool, versus looking at the sun above the swimming pool. -Michael J. Massimino

It's just this little comedy about this group of guys, and their local hangout is a pool hall, and it's starting to get taken over by this big corporate, evil kind of guy. And it's just about them trying to save the day and their little pool hall in the process of it all. It's called 'Think Tank.' -Aaron Ruell

Manchester United and Liverpool have been bought with huge leverage, and we've got Roman Abramovich at Chelsea who can turn his loans into shares. It is really important for the Premier League to ask itself: if a club is being bought on such a mountain of debt, isn't that a possible recipe for disaster for the future? -Gordon Taylor

I was a kid that grew up in the South and was always outdoors fishing and hunting and, you know, swimming in the pool during the summer. -Tye Sheridan

One of my lungs is half gone, and the other half, because I smoked for years, has a lesion. So I can't swim anymore and had the swimming pool covered over. Now it's what I call the dance pavilion, and so I and my friends sit out and put music on and watch people dance. -Maya Angelou

I was approached to do something for seven years, and it was a quality project. I did seriously think about it, but I didn't want to be away for six months of the year. I've never done the L.A. thing where you go and have loads of meetings; I can't say to my wife, 'I'm going to wait by a pool for six months.' -Eddie Marsan

I never really gambled – certainly not playing poker. I'd casually bet on a football game or joined a pool. -Jason Gedrick

Radio for years and years looked at the same pool of talent. I always believed there were other people in the world that could do radio shows. -Scott Greenstein

I drive the car pool – I show up with no makeup and drive the kids to school. -Jane Clayson

I like to work out while I'm away – it's good to clear my head and makes me feel cuter poolside. -Brad Goreski

Sport is not just about entertainment. It is equally about winning and losing, pooling and galvanising the energy of the youth, upgrading people's physical fitness and mental prowess. -Nita Ambani

By giving unusual people an easy way to find one another, the Internet has also enabled them to pool rare talents, resources, and voices, then push their case into public consciousness. The response, in many cases, is a kind of hysteria. -Virginia Postrel

At school, I'd sing in groups in the locker room or in the bathroom, which was like an echo chamber. The problem is I didn't know how to get started singing professionally. The pool hall was my Facebook. I'd hang out there to keep up with what was going on and to let people know where I could be reached if singing jobs came up. -Frankie Valli

Social Security is an insurance policy. It's a terrible investment vehicle. Social Security has some great benefits. But it was never meant to be a savings plan. So we need to have a national debate. Should this 12.5 percent that we're contributing all go into a Social Security pool, or should half go into a mandatory savings plan? -Laurence D. Fink

I understand why offices need to have office parties. I understand why offices need to have betting pools. No matter what the job, you need things to foster camaraderie and let off steam. -Drew Goddard

I put myself through college playing pool. -Walter Alston

No one wants to hear from the producer. He's the guy by the pool with a cigar in his mouth and a couple of lovelies on his arm. But when you're a director, they want to hear what you have to say about everything – the war, the world. -Irwin Winkler

When you're at a public pool or in your friend's backyard, knowing that your kids can get in and out of the water and protect themselves can make all the difference in the world. Something as simple as being able to flip over and get to the ladder can save a life. You can start your kids in lessons as early as you want – it's never too soon. -Summer Sanders

I grew up in northern California, where it was consistently in the hundreds in the summertime. My dad didn't think he should have to turn on the air conditioning when we had a swimming pool in our backyard; it was our built-in air conditioner. -Summer Sanders

My parents wanted us to be pool-safe, so I had lessons when I was 18 months old. I would like to share with all the parents out there that I was that kid who cried during every one of my lessons. But it wasn't an option for my parents; we had a backyard pool, so I needed to learn how to swim. -Summer Sanders

I've been barefoot most of my life: either flip flops or barefoot on the pool deck. Although you'd think that would make me a good candidate for barefoot running, that doesn't work with me. -Summer Sanders

As I got older, I became so self conscious about my birthmark that I was very hesitant about going to a pool party, because I didn't want my makeup to rub off. -Hannah Storm

Sure, I've felt racism. I think everybody has prejudice. When I was growing up, the dark Mexican kids weren't allowed in the public swimming pool in Dallas. My light-skinned friend got in, and he laughed at us. It didn't seem like a big deal, because we didn't know any different. So I never ran into anything that actually scarred me. -Lee Trevino

I think a lot of people get lost. They start following iconic figures and get drowned in the pool of celebrity. Our society, as we know it, is definitely changing. With social media and cell phones, you freak out when you don't know what's going on. -Israel Broussard

I spent most of my time playing pool instead of studying. -James Garner

I find I clash sometimes with people who like to plan things and book you in for lunch. I'd rather someone call me up, say: 'Are you free tonight and d'you wanna go to the roller-disco? Or play pool?' -Rosamund Pike

Like many other banks and finance companies, Green Tree used a process called securitization to resell its home loans to outside investors. Green Tree grouped thousands of these small loans into a pool worth hundreds of millions of dollars. -Alex Berenson

I flipped through a book on harp seals in the late 1970s and saw images of them swimming in emerald green pools of water surrounded by huge sheets of ice. Right then I was hooked, and I knew this was a story I wanted to do. -Brian Skerry

I would DJ pool parties in Minneapolis, but I never swam there! -Barkhad Abdi

You look at Man United and Liverpool, and they are red – they are much more successful and have a bigger fan base than Chelsea or Manchester City. -Vincent Tan

I've always liked Liverpool. I'd play a lot of video games, and I'd be them, because they played in red, like Independiente, my first club, Arsenal, or Chelsea. -Sergio Aguero

I am a big fan of the Gallagher brothers. At Liverpool, they came a few times; they are friends of Steven Gerrard. It was nice to meet them. When I was in Spain, I couldn't speak English, so I couldn't understand the lyrics. When I came to England, I started studying music and trying to understand what my favourite songs said. -Fernando Torres

Liverpool is a fundamental part of my life. They don't remember me that way, but time will change that. I could not have chosen a better place to go when I left Atletico. -Fernando Torres

My son is a Liverpool fan, and he was already kicking a ball before he was one. He was born in the football city; he had no choice. -Fernando Torres

I remember when I first came to Liverpool, Pepe Reina helped with everything, and he made it easy for me. When I was Atletico Madrid captain, I tried to help everyone. These are the basics in football: you need to create an atmosphere and try to create a group of friends. It's not easy, and it doesn't always happen, but you have to try. -Fernando Torres

Liverpool is a massive club in reputation, but as soon as I came here, it felt like Atletico to me. It is a working city, an honest city. The people work all week, and on Saturday they want to go to Anfield and watch the best team in the world. -Fernando Torres

You have to know what club you are playing for, or you just play for yourself. Every time I put on a Liverpool shirt, I know it is more than just a football game. -Fernando Torres

One of the reasons I chose to come to Liverpool was because of the mentality of the club. It's a working club and a working city. I don't know why, but I feel like one of the people here. They recognise me and wish me luck, but in Spain, they surround you and you can't do anything. I think they're happy with me here. -Fernando Torres

My baby will be growing up in Liverpool, so we have another Scouser. -Fernando Torres

After winning the European Championship with Spain, I know exactly how it feels to win a major trophy, and I know that, if we can win at Liverpool, it will feel the same or even better than it did with Spain. -Fernando Torres

At Liverpool, I had almost everything but titles. I felt like a king, but the team was falling apart. -Fernando Torres

My parents, Mary Agnes Smith and Rowland Smith, both had to work since their early teens, she in the holiday boarding house of her mother and he in his father's market garden in Marton Moss, a village on the south side of Blackpool, just north of Saint Anne's-on-Sea. -Michael Smith

I was not proficient in Latin and so was not able to go to Oxford or Cambridge. However, I did enter the first-rate chemistry honours program at the University of Manchester in 1950, where the professors were E.R.H. Jones and M.G. Evans, and graduated in 1953, with the financial support of a Blackpool Education Committee Scholarship. -Michael Smith

The first Mardi Gras I went to, I stayed at the Tulane AE Pi house on Broadway. Slept on a pool table one night, slept under it the next. -Adam Richman

I'm kind of shy, to be honest. If I go to the pool or something, I keep my shirt on unless I'm getting in the water. -Larry Fitzgerald

In spite of the opinions of certain narrow-minded people, who would shut up the human race upon this globe, as within some magic circle it must never outstep, we shall one day travel to the moon, the planets, and the stars, with the same facility, rapidity, and certainty as we now make the voyage from Liverpool to New York! -Jules Verne

The difference between great actors and the rest of us isn't simply that they know how to make more out of less, but that, like lions at the watering hole, they will always take more than their share from the pool of available resources – extra air from the room, added knowledge from our faces. -John Burnham Schwartz

I think you can get better in mathematics on a school level, but when you're talking about being a mathematician, I think that's definitely a gift of genes or whatever, you know? Whatever your pool is. -John Hurt

As public schools deteriorate, the upper-middle class and wealthy send their kids to private ones. As public pools and playgrounds decay, the better-off buy memberships in private tennis and swimming clubs. As public hospitals decline, the well-off pay premium rates for private care. -Robert Reich

I must admit, the constant invasion of privacy was becoming a real concern. I've been asked for autographs while I've been doing laps in the pool and even in the toilet! -Rick Astley

Some people think that there aren't many Aboriginal actors around, and if there are, they're not that good. It's stupid. There's such an incredible pool of talent out there, and they're still coming out of drama schools. People just need to take a leap of faith. -Deborah Mailman

My mom worked for a doctor who had a pool that he heated to 90 degrees, and I hated cold water. My dad showed me how to dive in that pool, and pretty soon I started doing flips. -Troy Dumais

I don't flip. I don't even dive into a pool – straight cannonball for me. No, thanks. -Rob Lowe

We have a large pool of talented and educated women, and yet workplaces haven't necessarily changed to accommodate the reality of their lives. -Rosabeth Moss Kanter

For online universities, like Liverpool and the University of Phoenix, if prices drop by 60%, they still make money. But for the vast majority of traditional universities, if the prices fall by 10%, they are bankrupt; they have no wriggle room. -Clayton M. Christensen

There's a pressure to conform to particular images, and it feels a pretty exclusive pool of body image or facial image that is considered appealing. And in a way, that feels like pre-judging what an audience might actually want. -Hattie Morahan

I love pool because it's a game of strategy, a game of the eye, and your whole universe is like this. I really want to become a pool shark. -Peggy Lipton

Kenny Dalglish was the greatest to play for Liverpool and Scotland, so for someone like that to sign me was an honour. -Charlie Adam

When you leave a club like Liverpool, you have to go somewhere you'll feel comfortable and progress as a player. To come to Stoke was an easy decision. -Charlie Adam

Since I moved to Blackpool, I've met a lot of great people, and if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be as successful as I was because I'm settled off the pitch. -Charlie Adam

I played in the Premier League for Blackpool and earned the right to go to a club like Liverpool. -Charlie Adam

I have a fantastic respect for Liverpool the city, club and the fans, from the time I spent there. That respect will always be there. -Charlie Adam

I get recognised in the street, but that's more from all the Scottish people who are down in Blackpool on their holidays. -Charlie Adam

Liverpool is such a big club, and I was fortunate to be one of a select few to have played for them. It was an amazing time. -Charlie Adam

Swimming keeps me fit and flexible, and it helps that I have a large pool at my house in Beverly Hills. -Nobu Matsuhisa

I would have liked to grow up in Liverpool and become a rocker. I would have put my boots on, jeans and a leather jacket, and long hair and played the guitar. -Hasso Plattner

I didn't have a pool growing up, and we went to the beach to lay out and get sun. -Erika Eleniak

My favourite Friday treat is to drive out of the centre of Cambridge, where we live, and go for a swim at the health club I've just joined out in the countryside at Quy. It's a lovely pool, inside a converted barn. Usually it's just me and a couple of other swimmers there. -Sophie Hannah

The brilliant thing about swimming is that, while you're doing it, there's nothing else you could be getting on with, like the ironing or sorting out the children. My mind goes into free-float mode; some of the best ideas for plots come into my head while I'm ploughing up and down the pool. -Sophie Hannah

Each black hole spins on its axis like the Earth spins. That spin creates two vortexes of twisting space, somewhat like vortexes in a bathtub or a whirlpool. -Kip Thorne

I longed from a tiny child to get away on my own. When I was five, I walked out along the sands from Redcar, nearly all the way to Hartlepool. -Jane Gardam

I never thought I'd be on T.V. For me as a kid in Liverpool, it was a more realistic option to be a singer. -Cilla Black

'Thunderbolts' I was mostly attracted to because I really wanted to write Punisher and Elektra and Deadpool, who are characters I have always really enjoyed. But the funny thing is that over time, I came to really like Red Leader; he became one of my favorite guys in the book. Sometimes characters surprise you. -Charles Soule

The history of fan fiction demonstrates how efficient, and effective, women have been at pooling together to get what they want out of their stories. It's been a largely female-driven world. -Sherwood Smith

I've been collecting articles on extremophile bacteria for at least the last ten years. I find them fascinating, whether they live in boiling pools at Yellowstone, around thermal vents at the floors of the oceans, or on Mars, where NASA has been searching for them as the first evidence of life beyond Earth. -Will Hobbs

It's just not possible to be a real partner if you aren't materially participating. I believe even the busiest business owners must drive a carpool, pack a lunch, help with homework, make a breakfast or dinner, and consistently attend school events. -Scott Weiss

In the summer of 1964, my sister and I went to South Ballston, Virginia, to stay with my aunt and her kids. They passed the civil rights bill that summer; my cousins were so happy because now they could swim in the pool. -Edward P. Jones

If something doesn't work, you have to admit it. Always try to find what's going right and what's going wrong with your music. If you can, pool your resources and record yourself; do that frequently. -Steve Forbert

Diversifying our tech talent pool is an imperative for the tech sector. More diverse engineers and entrepreneurs will bring about a new type of innovation that Silicon Valley has yet to see. -Mitch Kapor

This country can no longer afford to choose our leaders from a talent pool limited by sex, race, money, powerful fathers and paper degrees. It's time to take equal pride in breaking all the barriers. -Gloria Steinem

It's not about being rich, but everyone back home has a pool. And I was a total water baby. My mom couldn't get me out – she'd put my dinner plate at the end of the pool, and I'd eat my meals in the water. -Margot Robbie

I have a fear of water, believe it or not. To put a wire 12 feet over a swimming pool frightens me. I don't like water. -Philippe Petit

Car-essential is a real turn-off to me, so yeah, I just want a friendly holiday resort with a villa and a pool, but which is really private, but there again, there's a supermarket and a doctor's and a beach a five-minute walk away. That's all I want, and it's quite difficult to find. -Robert Webb

I just love watching football. It doesn't matter what level it is, whether it's Fleetwood or Blackpool. I love to go and watch games. -Charlie Adam

I've always been a bit of a space geek. I wrote an article years ago about the neutral buoyancy tank, which is this biblically sized pool where they train astronauts. And it was just the coolest thing. -Mary Roach

Why not sit around a Beverly Hills pool collecting residual cheques? That is not the kind of life I want. -Kevin Spacey

The lawyer refused to tell me my brother's name, and my colleagues started a betting pool. The leading candidate: John Travolta. I secretly hoped for a literary descendant of Henry James – someone more talented than I: someone brilliant without even trying. -Mona Simpson

In China, we don't know about the swimming pool game, but we know about Marco Polo. -Zhu Zhu

Liverpool will always be special for me: my daughter was born here. -Luis Suarez

It disturbs me that Liverpool are not in the Champions League and fighting for the Premier League. -Luis Suarez

I'm not going to another club to hurt Liverpool. -Luis Suarez

The only thing I want is the respect of the fans of Liverpool and the fans of the national team of Uruguay. -Luis Suarez

I think Liverpool have a long history with many great players. I hope one day to be up there with those great players. I'll try my best to write some history here. -Luis Suarez

At clubs like Liverpool, great players come and go. -Luis Suarez

My first season at Liverpool had good moments but also bad ones. We played three tournaments and we played two finals, and that was good. -Luis Suarez

I quickly realised that it is difficult to get started when writing a novel. You have this dream of what you want to create, but it is like walking around a swimming pool and hesitating to jump in because the water is too cold. -Patrick Modiano

Now I'm the father of three young boys, I find myself using GoPro to film them more than anything – trips to the amusement park, the beach, the pool – just chasing them around as they grow. -Nick Woodman

I guess a show like 'Entourage' would be wish fulfillment, right? But 'Entourage' is wish fulfillment for men. It's that you can be kind of schlumpy-looking and have access to someone famous and find yourself at a pool party surrounded by girls in bikinis. -Jill Soloway

I was raising seven kids. I lived in the bedrooms, in the laundry room, in the kitchen, in the car – car pooling all over. I just didn't have time to sit down and watch a lot of TV. So I really didn't. -Karolyn Grimes

The only pool of young people lies in Saudi Arabia, some of the Middle-East countries, and few African countries. But they are not prepared as Indians are… we travel well; we are accepted globally very well, and that makes India truly a place to source world's workforce. -Sunil Mittal

I think Liverpool generates generosity which rubs off – it's a good place to work and to party. -Rhys Ifans

I think that Liverpool's particular modern history lends itself to the cinema better than London in many ways. When you go to Liverpool, you absorb that whole sound and humour. -Rhys Ifans

If you don't have a pool in Las Vegas, you have to put your children in the icebox. -Sirio Maccioni

The best parties have always been at my house in Ibiza. They start with a bit of music and a barbecue by the pool. -Jade Jagger

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to think: have I really come this far? Because it is quite different, where I find myself today, from where I started off, in the streets of Waterloo, in the suburbs of Liverpool – that's for sure. -Cherie Blair

I don't want to give this impression that I grew up in Liverpool in a cardboard box in abject poverty, but that didn't mean there weren't anxieties in my childhood about money. -Cherie Blair

With Halcyon's technology, the pool of genetic information will grow by orders of magnitude in the course of months, offering the first real chance at cures for cancer and other previously intractable diseases. -Luke Nosek

I want to work with my friends because Canadian genre publishing is a really small pool. -Ed Greenwood

My favourite pool is located in a remote valley in the eastern Lake District, surrounded by vine-hung cliffs and slippery boulders. It has a torrential sheet waterfall at one end and is almost black in colour, so it appears bottomless, a portal to nowhere. -Sarah Hall

I was born in 1943 at Neston in the Wirral, not far from Liverpool where my father, Richard William Hunt was a lecturer in paleography, the study of mediaeval manuscripts. -Tim Hunt

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

My mom and dad got divorced, so it was one of those things where Sundays I'd go to Dad's apartment, and this was, say, 1970-whatever, and it had a pool table on the top floor in a very traditional kind of divorced-dad apartment building. -Chris Eigeman

Microwork gives marginalized people a chance to earn a living by playing a vital role in the business processes of big companies. In parallel, the organization assists local entrepreneurs in running microwork centers, helping to grow a new pool of business talent across the developing world. -Leila Janah

I always write my first draft in longhand, in lined notebooks. I move around the house, sitting where I like, and watch the words spool out in front of me, actually taking a lot of pleasure in the way they look in my strange handwriting on the page. -Sue Miller

My dad and I compete on the pool table; that's the most important competition of our lives. The fact that I'm writing and it works for me is one of the great joys for him. We talk about writing, and it's great. -Nick Harkaway

I would say the larger the pool you have to select from, the more likely you are to find the most compatible person for you if you have the right algorithms working on your behalf. -Sam Yagan

I found that gloss paint suited me entirely, and its qualities still intrigue me. It's viscous and fluid and feels like a pool. It's highly reflective, which means there are layers of looking. You look at the picture, and you look at the surface, then you look at the reflection in the surface behind you, then you look at yourself. -Gary Hume

A lot of British actors will look at America as such a land of opportunity. In England, there's such a small pool of working actors of color. There's such a small amount of work that is actually produced in the first place. -Aml Ameen

I've been a grant seeker all my life, but when I apply for one and get it, that means someone else doesn't. I didn't want to be a part of that anymore. I wanted to contribute to that pool and make it bigger. -Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

Ray Bradbury has a vacation house in Palm Springs, California, in the desert at the base of the Santa Rosa mountains. It's a Rat Pack-era affair, with a chrome-and-turquoise kitchen and a small swimming pool in back. -Sam Weller

We grew up in Woolton, Liverpool. We didn't have much, but it was irrelevant. We played out a lot with all the kids on the street. -Rebecca Ferguson

I had been carpooling kids for 33 years. -Caitlyn Jenner

Two of the first plays I saw after I arrived in Britain were 'King Lear' in Liverpool, and 'Antony and Cleopatra' at Stratford. One was produced with hardly a backdrop and the other with gigantic scene changes. I was impressed by what connected the two: the words and their life beyond the stage. -Romesh Gunesekera

If companies are able to have multiple revenue streams and have their hands in multiple pools of money, then why shouldn't the people who actually work for those brands be able to do the exact same thing? -Roland Martin

Born on an island, I could swim before I could walk, thrown many times into swimming pools and warm transparent Caribbean waters: sink or swim, that was my first lesson. While I'm not a natural athlete, I'm still a strong swimmer and feel a great affinity with the sea. -Monique Roffey

Before movies, memory unspooled differently in the mind, trailing off in dust-blasted fade-out rather than spliced-together flashback; before photography, memory rippled like a reflection on water's surface, less precise but more profoundly true. -Steve Erickson

The wealth that was created by my investments wasn't put into a giant swimming pool as so many elected demagogues seem to imagine. Instead it benefitted our employees, their families and our community at large. -Kenneth Langone

A good vacation for me is going to warm weather. Being able to go outside, in the sun, hit the beach, play outside sports. Being active outside. Going swimming, hanging by the pool, having a couple drinks, having a couple of your close buddies around, and just having a blast. -Rob Gronkowski

Success will be when I can have a real swimming pool instead of the fifty-dollar one I buy at Kmart every year. But I don't want to get robbed of any authenticity to try and make money. -Nathaniel Rateliff

I was swimming in my swimming pool when 'The Secret Lovers' popped entire into my head. I got out, dried off, went upstairs, and finished the book in about 50 days. -Charles McCarry

I have to have a cheat day. I know when I'm being good all week long that come Sunday, I'm going to lie by the pool, have a drink, and eat some pizza. -Kaley Cuoco

When I was 5, I did a commercial for Whirlpool sitting on a tree stump eating a popsicle that dripped all over my clothes. -Drake Bell

My mom was a championship pool player. -Drake Bell

With any free time I have, I'd take a high energy work out class at Soul Cycle, grab an outdoor bite somewhere by the beach and then finish it off by lounging at my pool. -Tia Mowry

Every company, regardless of size, is competing for the same pool of talent, which is why top recruiters can even command equity for finding key hires. Internships give startups a chance to hire the best and brightest from our universities at a fraction of the cost that these same minds will command when they receive their degrees. -Jay Samit

The very first thing I ever did, I was doing some work for the French Cultural Center. They wanted a little recording set up. And I got wire. A wire recorder. The wire came off spools, and to cut and edit, you tied it together in little square knots. Can you imagine? -D. A. Pennebaker

The great thing about writing 'Deadpool' is that he can demolish expectations and typical comic book conventions with monster truck force. There are few other characters who can transition so easily from one type of story to the next. -Cullen Bunn

Deadpool's' probably pretty proud of his comic book hero physique. -Cullen Bunn

Writing 'Deadpool' can be a lot of fun. When I first started working with the character, I wasn't sure I'd like him. I quickly realized, though, that a writer can do pretty much anything with him – comedic stories, serious stories, completely nonsensical stories. -Cullen Bunn

No phone. No pool. No pets. No cigarettes. Ultimate freedom… No longer to be poisoned by civilization, he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become Lost in the Wild. -Christopher McCandless

What SAT tutoring does is it invisibly alters the admissions pool so a school could try to be as egalitarian as they can, but if a student is SAT-tutored, and their score goes up 200 points in a year, and the college admissions committee has no idea that the student got tutored, all of a sudden it's shifting the pool back toward old money. -Eliot Schrefer

Colleges accept the highest sub-scores from different administrations. So if a student takes the SAT many times instead of once, she has a larger pool of scores from which to pick out the highest math, critical reading, and writing. -Eliot Schrefer

Schools are really, really important. It gives you access to every kid in the country. It gives you a massive pool of people to see who might be talented at different sports. It allows kids to try sports. Kids can be inspired all they want, but if they can't go out and try a sport, then it's no good. -Alistair Brownlee

The reason swimming is one of the hardest sports is because you have to be in the pool by yourself every day, making that sacrifice. There's no time to do anything else. -Chad le Clos

I've known Hillary, and her husband Bill, for more than half of my life. I remember her playing mermaid in the pool with our youngest daughter Sally for hours on family vacations. -Terry McAuliffe

If someone throws you in a pool and you can't swim, you're going to struggle. -Bernard Sumner

People who live in L.A. don't like to leave their homes because they have so much space. They have the nice kitchens and a cook and a pool. When you live in L.A., there is a sense of isolation in terms of raising a family. -Solange Knowles

Since the summer days of my Canadian childhood, I have loved to canoe across the dark mirror of northern lakes, paddling with an inside flick of the blade, leaving a trail of twisting whirlpools in my wake. -Rory MacLean

My daughters are both funny and smart and lots of fun. They play lacrosse, soccer, musical instruments, like to cook with me, and are naturals in the swimming pool. Honestly, though, what I like doing most with them is eating. I've worked really hard to make sure they are willing to try all sorts of different foods. -Alexi Zentner

India is a great talent pool of actors. I see Freida Pinto making it big in Hollywood, and I am sure many others can also make it. -Michelle Yeoh

This is pool. This is setting up your next shot, and I always want to make sure when we're setting up San Antonio's next shot we have a good shot at making sure that we continue to build our infrastructure in such a way that San Antonio will be a player for years to come in national defense issues. -Pete Gallego

If America wishes to preserve her native birds, we must help supply what civilization has taken from them. The building of cities and towns, the cutting down of forests, and the draining of pools and swamps have deprived American birds of their original homes and food supply. -John Burroughs

The pond-lily is a star and easily takes the first place among lilies; and the expeditions to her haunts, and the gathering her where she rocks upon the dark, secluded waters of some pool or lakelet, are the crown and summit of the floral expeditions of summer. -John Burroughs

Corruption is when a politician uses public funds to deliver pistachio ice cream to his home and transfer garden furniture to his Caesarea villa, then requesting that the expenses be covered for the water in his pool and fights to get a private jet. -Yair Lapid

I think that technology – computers and smart phones and 24-hour availability – often leaves me, and others I know, feeling blank and depressed at the end of a day. I also believe that hyped expectations for raising children leaves many women and men feeling as if their days are a blur of carpools and play-groups and tutors. -Rebecca Traister

Success is not two cars or a swimming pool. It's the approval of your peers. -Peter Finch

When I left my job at Lehman Brothers to start a company, my best friend's mother said, 'How could you leave a sure thing like Lehman to do a silly carpool startup?' That was three months before Lehman went bankrupt. -John Zimmer

The TECH Careers Act will open the door for more Americans to have successful middle-class careers and help small businesses in Connecticut and across the country access a qualified pool of talented workers. -Elizabeth Esty

Every now and then, you'll get one of those days when you're feeling rubbish or when you have to pretty much drag yourself out of bed to get to training. But then you'll see the Olympic pool, and all the excitement and adrenaline will come rushing back. -Aimee Willmott

I just always really wanted to swim. It was always a family thing: dad obviously swam, and my sister did, too. And mum used to come along to meets. They had to drag me out of the pool – so there was never any pressure on me to swim. It was just something I loved doing. -Aimee Willmott

The difference between the swimming marathon and the pool events is mainly down to the weather. Nature always gives us external factors to deal with. -Poliana Okimoto

With marathon swimming, I think you have to use your head more than you do in pool events, which are more automatic. You can just go out and replicate your training pace in competition. With the marathon, though, you have to contend with nature, physical contact, and time. -Poliana Okimoto

I'm a proud New Zealander, and I represent Paralympics New Zealand. I love what I do, and I do it because I love it. The passion is unbelievable in every race I do. I have the ambition to change things outside the pool, too. -Sophie Pascoe

It makes you feel like the pool is yours when you have your family there. You walk up to them and see them crying… and you know they are proud of you. -Sophie Pascoe

The JOBS Act will allow entrepreneurs to utilize 'crowdfunding,' which permits them to raise equity capital from a large pool of small investors. -Sam Graves

I am donating $10,000 from my inaugural committee to the 'Pink Pack' because the only way we will find a cure for cancer is by joining together, pooling our resources, and focusing on the lifesaving mission that everyone can fight back against cancer. -Susana Martinez

Seagulls are a landfill nuisance because they fly away with food scraps and, as is their reputation, fight each other over them midflight, often losing them, and soon a lady has a half-eaten hamburger splashing into her backyard pool. -Jeanne Marie Laskas

Drake's home is its own fantasia, a single-level ranch that sprawls in various wings over 7,500 square feet, from the game room to the gym to Drake's master bedroom with Jacuzzi. The pool is like a scene out of Waterworld, with a bar inside a grotto, waterfalls, and a slide that drops thirty feet through the rock. -Michael Paterniti

I don't need a pool room with medals and everything hanging up. -Sonny Bill Williams

My granddad used to mind me at weekends, and if the game was on, and you wanted to get across the room, you had to crawl under the TV. So I've always been a Liverpool fan, and meeting Steven Gerrard was massive for me. He knew who I was before we'd even said hello! -Katarina Johnson-Thompson

As a Liverpool fan, I'm an eternal optimist because of what we did in Istanbul in 2005. -Katarina Johnson-Thompson

For me, I can't see Liverpool without him because he's just been there since I was a kid. I had him on the back of my shirt. He's always been on the team every time I've watched Liverpool. It's going to be really weird next season, a Steven Gerrard-less Liverpool side. -Katarina Johnson-Thompson

I was so scared of the water when I was little. I used to grab onto Mum's hand to get out of the pool. I did not even want to shower. -Adam Peaty

I work out almost every day with some form of cardio, a few times a week, laps in the pool, weight training and Pilates. -Georgina Bloomberg

The multiculturalism of Britain is one of our greatest strengths in music, literature, and visual art, but the TV and film industry doesn't tap into the multicultural talent pool in the U.K. as much as they do in the U.S. -Riz Ahmed

I get marriage proposals, maybe one a week. Women do flirt, yes. They just want someone from the telly. They come and talk to you, and I guess baking is more attractive, and so they feel they have something in common with me. But I'm just a man from Liverpool. I enjoy what I do, and if that gets people baking, then even better. -Paul Hollywood

I had wanted to place the Eye-in-the-Sea at an oasis on the bottom of the ocean, in some site rich with life that was likely to be patrolled by large predators. The first time I got to test the camera at such a place was in 2004, in the north end of the Gulf of Mexico, at an amazing location called the brine pool. -Edith Widder

In England, football is a big thing to talk about, but Liverpool, it's a special place. You feel it when you make your first step. -Jurgen Klopp

The intensity of the football and how the people live football in Liverpool – it is not a usual. -Jurgen Klopp

There is something special which rides on a game between Liverpool and United. -Jurgen Klopp

Without being the most confident person in the world, I think I am the right person for Liverpool. -Jurgen Klopp

I love football and the intensity of football in Liverpool, this is what is very good for me. -Jurgen Klopp

I always thought about working in England because of the kind of football, the intensity of football. Liverpool was first choice. -Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool is a club with a big, big, big history, and all the clubs in the world have a big history if the present is not too successful. If you have never had success, then nobody knows how it is, but in Liverpool, everybody knows how it was. -Jurgen Klopp

I'm looking forward to the intensity of football and how the people live football in Liverpool. It's a special club. -Jurgen Klopp

Businesses want to be in places where there is a deep talent pool. -Gina Raimondo

I read so many things because a colleague or a friend will post something, and I'll be able to learn a tremendous amount only because they drew attention to it. So I try to do that for others, and that's the great thing about social media. It's not always a narcissistic cesspool or waste of time. -Olivia Wilde

I come from a family of teasers myself. My grandfather was from Liverpool, and he had a dry sense of humor, and he would tease us terribly. My brother Beau was so skilled in his teasing that he could get a rise out of me by simply pointing at me. -Jeff Bridges

You can't afford for there to be gaps in your pool of knowledge when it comes to a character; otherwise, what ends up onscreen is generalized and unspecific. -David Oyelowo

I haven't swam in any of the rivers outside of Baltimore. I try to keep it in the pool. -Michael Phelps

I think everybody pees in the pool. It's kind of a normal thing to do for swimmers. -Michael Phelps

For so long, I looked at myself as literally a kid who was talented who would go up and down the pool. That's it. Nothing else. Very few people knew who I really was. -Michael Phelps

When you have more people investing in VR games, whether it's us or Sony or someone else, that means a greater pool of VR developers out there who know how to make VR games. -Palmer Luckey

I've always loved the way movie stars in the Forties looked when they were off set. Shot poolside or at their home, they always wore a matte red lipstick with practically no foundation – it was how they wore makeup in real life. -Francois Nars

When I was growing up in Ossining, N.Y., playing pool with the guys, the thought that any one of us might become an actor was as far-fetched as being knighted by the queen of England. -Peter Falk

If you were brought up in the '40s, a kid in Ossining, New York, hanging out at the poolroom and stealing, how can you think, 'Here I am in Ossining. I, too, can be a movie star!' -Peter Falk

The problem with the Dorises and the Nicki Minajes and Mileys is that they reach their goal very quickly. There is no long-term vision, and they forget that once you get into that whirlpool, then you have to fight the system that solidifies around you in order to keep being the outsider you claim you represent. -Grace Jones

I'm interested in morality and mortality, and 'Deadpool' kind of has all of these themes. -T. J. Miller

'Guardians of the Galaxy' is tongue-in-cheek and has a sense of humor about itself. But it's nothing like 'Deadpool.' 'Deadpool' is this super-bizarre thing. The best thing about it is that it's R-rated. -T. J. Miller

I do believe that in the future there will be a movie called 'Deadpool vs. Wolverine'. -T. J. Miller

I started surfing when I was working on 'The Hunger Games,' out on the north shore of Oahu, so about four years ago. I used to skateboard as a kid, kind of religiously, until I broke my leg riding in a pool when I was about 14 and I couldn't play football that fall. -Jeffrey Wright

It's like Liverpool. Everybody went for the music. All the young musicians seemed to gravitate to Asbury Park. -Clarence Clemons

I love Asbury Park. It's like the Liverpool of America. -Clarence Clemons

I never missed a birthday. I never missed a school play. We carpooled. And the greatest compliment I can ever get is not about my career or performance or anything; it's when people say, 'You know, your girls are great.' That's the real thing for me. -Billy Crystal

Employers should overcome a myopic quarterly earnings posture and focus on long-term strategies for growth that include investing in their own skills-training efforts to enable a broader pool of applicants. -Elaine Chao

As the 20th century unspooled, a cultural warming melted down many frozen class characteristics. -Melvyn Bragg

Grime reminds me, if there is an echo, of sort of near enough like Liverpool in the very early Sixties. It's a lot of kids obsessed with music – obsessed with it. -Melvyn Bragg

The first job I ever had was at a pool-liner-manufacturing plant. Minimum wage was $4.25, and that's what I was making. It was this huge, hot, un-air-conditioned factory staffed with all women and me. This is in Georgia, during the summertime, so it was pretty ridiculous. -Jack McBrayer

If ISIL were to substantially increase the priority it places on attacking the West rather than fighting to maintain and expand territorial control, then the group's access to radicalized Westerners who have fought in Syria and Iraq would provide a pool of operatives who potentially have access to the United States and other Western countries. -James Clapper

For me, I've learned if I want a very stable, normal relationship, where I'll be like, 'Okay, this is nice, I know what's going to happen in a month,' it's probably better to date outside the industry. But you can't help who you fall for. It's our dating pool. -Camila Cabello

I go home, and I'm a blob. I just lay there and don't do anything – lay by the pool with the other husbands while the wives work. It's fantastic. It's really good. That's kind of our life at home. -Garth Brooks

I'm a big card guy. I play Rook, Liverpool Rummy – love that. I play Pac-Man, shoot pool. -Terry Bradshaw

When it comes to best new artist or album or song of the year, yeah, it's very rare that you see someone in country win one of those. It's a very strong genre, and it's got roots so deep in our culture. I think the pool of voters listen more to pop and R&B and hip-hop. Those seem to be the major contenders. -Maren Morris

In early 2005, I really studied the prospectuses of these mortgage pools that were tranched out into different-rated slices rated by agencies like S&P and Moody's. They had names like Park Place and People's Choice. It was clear to me that many of the buyers of these repackaged subprime mortgages were doing little analysis. -Michael Burry

We always had so many kids in our family, running around the yard, sweaty little kids jumping in and out of the pool, the front door and back doors swinging open and shut, all of the parents getting pissed off telling us to stay outside. -Roman Reigns

When I was playing, there were always lots of teams in contention for the league – Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Leeds. Every week was a big game and a big battle. -George Best

Because we were all from Liverpool, we favored people who were street people. -George Harrison

We appear to have form, but we are like a whirlpool. We appear to have form, but we are just whirling electrons. -Marilyn Ferguson

We are constantly nothing but a bunch of energy being processed. Into this whirlpool, the more complex the system, the more energy it requires to hold it together. Therefore, the more complex – the scientists call it 'coherent' – the more fluctuations are possible. -Marilyn Ferguson

I usually go to the swimming pool if I want to swim. -Song Hye-kyo

A. L. Vijay asked if I could dance, and I just said yes. I didn't tell him the only dancing I had done was on nights out in Liverpool. He said he would arrange workshops and help me with the scripts and the language. He liked the fact that I was English but had an Indian look. -Amy Jackson

I loved having Indian take-aways on a Friday night in Liverpool, but it's so different in the real India. -Amy Jackson

I'd be getting texts from my mates saying they'd just got into a club in Liverpool with a fake ID, and what was I doing? I'd have just finished a 20-hour day and be sitting in a hotel room, starving. -Amy Jackson

Bombay is different to Liverpool, or anywhere, really. -Amy Jackson

I have myself been on the other side of the table being a participant of a singing talent hunt. Hence, it is weird but awesome at the same time to judge a pool of talent that our nation has. -Armaan Malik

I think the greatest goal I've ever scored is the one against Liverpool. It was amazing for me, and it really made my name in the Manchester team. -Anthony Martial

Comics are actually a lot more difficult to read than I thought they would be. After my second 'Deadpool' comic, I kind of gave up. -Brianna Hildebrand

I am one of the people who just doesn't enjoy watching myself. I wish I could! I've seen 'Deadpool' three times; the third time, it was enjoyable for me. -Brianna Hildebrand

A lot of superheroes today are a little self-righteous, and what's cool about 'Deadpool' is that he seems like a guy that you could meet at the 7-Eleven down the street. -Brianna Hildebrand

I'm kind of sad that Tim is not going to direct any more of the Deadpool films, because I really love him. He's hilarious. -Brianna Hildebrand

I loved 'Deadpool'. I loved the comics, and I loved the script. -Brianna Hildebrand

We never had a trampoline, but I wished I did. We'd sneak into a friend's pool and use their trampoline to practice backflips. -Rey Mysterio

I have friends who play for Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United. -Alexandre Pato

The Premier League is a very strong league. Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool all have a high quality. But those who know me also know that I always want to win titles. And I think that Manchester United are a club which can win titles. -Bastian Schweinsteiger

I feel like it's my responsibility not to leave the listener in a pool of dread. -Jens Lekman

Writing, to me, is like kayaking a river. You are paddling down, and you come to a walled-off canyon, and you make a sharp turn, and you don't know what's around the corner. It could be a waterfall, it could be a big pool. The narrative current carries you. You're surprised, and you're thrilled, and sometimes you're terrified. -Peter Heller

My kids think America is swimming pools on the roof, screening rooms, and hot dogs. They love it here. -Damian Lewis

That's the charm of Deadpool. He's charmingly annoying, and he'll be the first to admit that. -Morena Baccarin

I had grown up in a toy shop in Blackpool and then moved to London to do an acting course. -David Thewlis

If pop culture is a pool, it never hurts to dive into the deep end once in a while. -Greg Gutfeld

There are so many good players in the NBA, and I just want to be at the top of the talent pool. I want opposing coaches and players to fear me. -Ray Allen

My hair gets very light in the summer, but the problem with using all these products and going into the pool a lot is that my hair gets very yellow. I love purple shampoo! -Elsa Hosk

I'm never going to try 'Carpool Karaoke' in New York. That would be a very different thing. Mariah Carey's one, we just drove, like, five or six blocks round where she was staying at the time. -James Corden

I wasn't a happy kid. I felt like my mum ruined our chance of a better life, because when she remarried, we went to live in Bahrain, on a compound with a swimming pool, and she ruined it all. -James Arthur

Based on my experience, I would say that rather than taking lessons in how to become an entrepreneur, you should jump into the pool and start swimming. -Travis Kalanick

I like to play pool. When the ball goes in the pocket, you win. -Jason Isbell

I was a harpsichordist in my teens, and there was a bunch of us in Liverpool who got together every week to play Bach. -Simon Rattle

Liverpool is off the side of the known universe, and it always was. New York is the only other place comparable. -Simon Rattle

You don't like Liverpool: you either loathe it or you love it. And I don't know anyone who loathes it and comes from it. -Simon Rattle

As a Liverpool boy, it is impossible not to think of the Beatles' question, 'Will you still need me when I'm 64?' -Simon Rattle

I first heard Mahler's second symphony aged 11 in Liverpool, and it inspired me to become a conductor. -Simon Rattle

We started Vector with the goal of creating a development platform that would foster and bolster the micro space innovations currently underway and bring the promise of space-based technologies to a much larger pool of entrepreneurs who don't need to be space experts. -Jim Cantrell

I make my world chaotic. It's like a whirlpool. -Jimmy Iovine

There's nothing wrong with taking yourself out of the dating pool. You don't need to be in a relationship because that's what society expects of you or because your grandmother thinks you need to be married by a certain date. Those days are over. Instead, take a step back and say, 'I'm OK alone.' -Whitney Wolfe Herd

Room 40 knew a U-boat was heading south to Liverpool – knew the boat's history; knew that it was now somewhere in the North Atlantic under orders to sink troop transports and any other British vessel it encountered; and knew as well that the submarine was armed with enough shells and torpedoes to sink a dozen ships. -Erik Larson

If there was a horror movie showing somewhere in Liverpool between 1967 and 1975, I saw it. -Clive Barker

A syndicate is a group that has gotten together to pool their money so they can cover more contingencies. If I come to track with, say, $200, and I join a syndicate of 20 people, each of whom can bet $200, we can spread our bets, and that gives us a better chance of winning. -David Milch

I will not negotiate the demise of the ACA with the Trump administration, but I would certainly be willing to work with responsible Republicans to fix some of the problems, particularly by strengthening the individual purchasers market to bring younger and healthier people into the risk pool. -Jimmy Gomez

I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool – these are the teams that are always there fighting. -Neymar

There is no way I will survive Mike Pence doing Carpool Karaoke. What song's he gonna sing? 'I Deported Your Grandmother?' -Billy Eichner

In my experience, working as an intelligence analyst with my own pool of sources numbering close to 100, by far the most effective forms of human intelligence collection are rapport-building and direct questioning. -Chelsea Manning

I do have a personal life. I spend half of the week at home. One of those nights, I'll go out with some friends and have a good time. I have a day and a half at home, and love to just sit on my backyard by my pool, read a book, or do some writing. That's my vacation. -Dolph Ziggler

It is accurate that the Walt Disney Company and ESPN are committed to diversity and inclusion. These are long-standing values that drive fundamental fairness while providing us with the widest possible pool of talent to create the smartest and most creative staff. We do not view this as a political stance but as a human stance. -John Skipper

OpenAI is doing important work by releasing tools which promote AI to be developed in the open. Compute power is largely produced by NVIDIA and Intel and still relatively expensive but openly purchasable. Blockchains may be the key final ingredient by providing massive pools of open training data. -Fred Ehrsam

The best way to build the best workforce is to focus on the largest talent pool you have. -Mary Dillon

I do remember once going to Salzburg in Austria. Liverpool were playing a European game there, and they put me in a box behind glass. I hate being behind glass; I always want to feel part of the action. -John Motson

The thing that has not had enough attention is really thinking about how to use modern breeding techniques to really look at the germplasm pools and find ways to actually improve yields and to improve the heat and drought tolerance of these crops. -Sandra E. Peterson

I felt lost in endless spools of social media. All the while, emails by the thousands were piling up, phone calls were getting lost in the mix, and messages from the most important people in my life were getting drowned out in the din. I was more responsive to comments on Instagram than to my own closest friends and family. -Kelly Evans

The press pool was taking bets on how many months I would last. There was nobody in the state who thought I had any shot at being a good senator. -Kirsten Gillibrand

Since taking office, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party have transformed the Temporary Foreign Worker Program – which was originally designed to bring in temporary workers on a limited basis when no Canadian could be found – into one that has brought in a large pool of vulnerable workers. -Justin Trudeau

Every movie you attack has its challenges, and I was excited about the challenges presented by 'Deadpool.' I was a huge fan of the original, and I think, as a director, you have to put the script first. -David Leitch

The completely irreverent tone was the thing that won me over about the first 'Deadpool' movie. -David Leitch

The DNA of 'Deadpool' shouldn't change. -David Leitch

You always start a fight scene or an action scene with, 'What are we learning about this character at the moment, and how are we gonna arc him or her in the next three minutes,' and it's no different with 'Deadpool' or 'Atomic Blonde' or 'John Wick.' -David Leitch

I think in the 'Deadpool' franchise, the writers are really good at distilling the good stuff and applying that to the material in this universe. -David Leitch

We're going to come back to Oregon, whether it's with another show, or a pilot, or a movie. We love working up there. I think it's got one of the most amazing talent pools of any state in the union. -Dean Devlin

I have gotten a number of invitations to be on television shows as 'the dad,' but that was Kryptonite to me. I was like, 'This would be the death of me. I'll be a cesspool of niceness.' It doesn't feed me. -Bill Pullman

The Liverpool lad Darren Till looked unbelievable in his UFC debut, and he seems like quite a character. -Michael Bisping

When you get to the big leagues, the talent pool is on such a level playing field, you have to find a way to separate yourself from incredibly talented guys. Especially when you go through the injuries that I've had, you come back, and you might not physically be able to do some of the things you used to do. -Jake Peavy

Certainly some hosts on Airbnb are opening up their spare bedrooms to meet new people; and some drivers use Uber to carpool with strangers for the companionship. But the most productive members of each community are professional operators, making available their homes or cars as a way to earn or supplement a living. -Brad Stone

If your plumber or pool installer or local appliance store uses HubSpot software, HubSpot may be holding information about you without you even knowing it. We figure we're safe when we use online services. We figure we can trust the people who run them not to snoop on us. I used to believe that. I don't anymore. -Daniel Lyons

You can crank out Bitcoins on a PC, but it's an incredibly computer-intensive task, and it will keep getting harder as the number of Bitcoins in existence increases. Some people have pooled together hundreds of machines to 'mine' Bitcoins. Most folks, however, just buy them on an exchange. -Daniel Lyons

Just do some kind of workout. Doesn't matter if it's going for a walk around the block, going for a jog, doing some calisthenics, lifting weights, going to a pool and swimming – you name it. But do something that gets your blood flowing and gets your mind in the game. -Jocko Willink

When I decided to make 'Blackface,' a short film about Black Pete, I had little knowledge of the giant cesspool of hate I was about to dive into. I didn't realize how popular and passionate many white Dutch are about a figure that they connect to fond memories from their childhood. -Roger Ross Williams

I get up at 6 A.M., and sometimes I make lunch for my two youngest kids. Usually my oldest sleeps late, and I get my kids out the door to school. For years, it was me just doing all of that and then driving to a carpool or this or that. -Pamela Adlon

I left in Liverpool a lot of friends. I have a very good relationship with all of them. -Fernando Torres

I was not a Liverpool fan or a Chelsea fan in Madrid. I was an Atletico fan. I still am. Maybe they're the only badge I will kiss. -Fernando Torres

I want to thank my two English clubs: Liverpool for bringing me to the Premier League and Chelsea for the trophies I won. -Fernando Torres

As a kid, I never once dreamt of playing for Liverpool. -Fernando Torres

I had the best three years of my career at Liverpool. -Fernando Torres

Real Madrid is like Manchester United or Liverpool or Bayern Munich. There is so much history, and you need to play and win against that history. It's difficult to play against them because you fight against everything – the history, the players – but because of that, the motivation is always so high. -Fernando Torres

Liverpool gave me a second home. I was 24, I left my team, my town, and I went there. My memories there are just amazing. I have no words to thank them enough, and that's why I will always be a fan. -Fernando Torres

Liverpool had a lot of success under Rafa Benitez, and that is difficult for anyone to follow. -Fernando Torres

At Liverpool, winning is customary. -Fernando Torres

Chelsea gave me what I was looking for when I left Liverpool trophies. I'll always see it as a success. -Fernando Torres

Liverpool was a special city that took to me; I will always remember how special that place was. I obviously don't miss the rain. -Fernando Torres

When I've been working especially long hours, I make a point to spend an extra hour or two without my phone, doing something my children choose. They love the park or pool time, but mostly, they love my undivided attention. -Elizabeth Chambers

Basically, if you like 'Deadpool,' you'll love 'Captain Underpants.' -Thomas Middleditch

I'm just super competitive. Squash, tennis, water skiing, computer games… Even if I played you at pool, I'd have to win. -Lewis Hamilton

In my own experience, when we have an open directing assignment of any kind, not just the big films, I would say it is the exception, not the rule, that there is a woman in the group of directors that we are interviewing. I think that's from the pool being so small. -Donna Langley

The pooling operation used in convolutional neural networks is a big mistake, and the fact that it works so well is a disaster. -Geoffrey Hinton

Companies have told us that they have employees who are near retirement age. We created a $5 billion reinsurance pool to help them bear the cost of those employees on the brink of retirement. -Valerie Jarrett

When you look at the increase in the number of scripted series and the number of unscripted hours, the pool of producers hasn't grown at the same rate. So I think there's a bit of a creative tax on the system. -Nancy Dubuc

I have always loved broadcasting – as a child in Liverpool, I would wake up and listen to Morning Merseyside on BBC Radio Merseyside and wonder, 'How do they do that?' -Richard Quest

There's a Diebenkorn painting – 'Ocean Park No. 68' – that is the color of a swimming pool and always reminds me of summers at the beach. -Tory Burch

I don't see anything degrading about marriage or homemaking, but my husband and I pool the money we earn, along with the jobs around the house. -Valerie Harper

I love to go to the beach or stay at the pool with my girls – enjoy the sun and the water as much as I can, take rides with the bicycles, and spend time with my family. -Bianca Balti

Deadpool was always one of my favorite characters because of the way he handles all kinds of situations. His style and humor make him the perfect antihero. -Stefan Kapicic

It's great finding a comic book character that doesn't care about following traditional comic book rules by breaking the fourth wall and being explicit about everything. This gives Deadpool the arrogance which you just have to love. -Stefan Kapicic

There is no actor in the world with such talent and charm that could play Deadpool as well as Ryan Reynolds. Working with him was a fantastic experience, and his ideas and suggestions helped me out a lot. It was just great fun to work one-on-one as Deadpool and Colossus. -Stefan Kapicic

As you have two more huge characters as Cable and Domino, 'Deadpool' is growing, and it's making 'X-Force' franchise bigger and bigger. -Stefan Kapicic

I'm a big fan of 'Deadpool,' and Rob Liefeld masterpieces are among the other great comic creators and characters. -Stefan Kapicic

As a fanboy, I was raised on the Marvel Universe, so I was very familiar with the 'Deadpool' world. On the other side, the 'X-Men' comics were one of my top five comics, so to be one of them, especially Colossus, is an incredible thing after years of creatively visualizing him since I was a kid. -Stefan Kapicic

Since girls and women represent 50 percent of the world population, enabling them to participate in their local economies helps broaden the employment pool. -Tae Yoo

My parents were working class and didn't have much money, so holidays tended to be two weeks in a caravan at St. Andrews or a B&B in Blackpool. -Ian Rankin

I like to swim a few times a week. It's relaxing, and no one can call, email, or text me while I'm in the pool. -Stacy Brown-Philpot

How do we make hockey more affordable? How do we get it into more households? How do we keep it part of the conversation? Those are things that will help us not only increase registration numbers from a grassroots level but also deepen the player pool from the senior national team and the elite level. -Hilary Knight

Tim Miller is a very good friend of ours. We'd love to see 'Deadpool' jump into the MCU. -Joe Russo

When we look at transportation in America, there's going to be companies like Magic Bus, where you have these private bus fleets. You're going to have carpooling; you're going to have these different types of transportation. It's going to be a full ecosystem, but it's not going to be a winner-takes-all. -Troy Carter

If technology is designed mostly by white males, who make up roughly half our population, we're missing out on the innovation, solutions, and creativity that a broader pool of talent can bring to the table. -Kimberly Bryant

Skills-building opportunities should be extended to people outside of the mainstream talent pool. That might include at-risk youth, veterans returning to the workforce, or immigrants struggling to make a life for themselves in a foreign culture. The process for creating wealth must begin with creating opportunity for all. -Punit Renjen

I've always had this thing for swimming pools – I think they're much sexier and far more glamorous than the beach, in a way. You dress differently when you're spending a day at an amazing pool than you would dress for the beach. -Michael Bastian

In 'Deadpool,' we stayed far away from the shiny, clean X-Men world. It's really the seedy underbelly of what's been shown in other superhero films. -Tim Miller

If we do another 'Deadpool,' we'd love to have more money for visual effects. But I don't think anybody does good with an excess of time or money. -Tim Miller

'Goon' is very much an action – it's got a lot of heart, it's got a lot of comedy, it's got a lot of similarities to what I think was successful in 'Deadpool,' and so I think it's not a stretch to compare those two things and say the world is a little more ready than they used to be for this kind of material. -Tim Miller

In the past, there's reasons why 'The Goon' wasn't made; it's because people were afraid of edgy animation. Now, I think that 'Deadpool' has proved that that audience is out there in a bigger way than some people thought. -Tim Miller

I don't look at 'Deadpool' and think, 'Oh, that's a perfect movie.' I look at it and go, 'Oh, God, there's so much stuff I could do better.' -Tim Miller

I think 'Deadpool' worked because of what it was. I think 'Deadpool' worked because it was funny. I think 'Deadpool' worked because it didn't take itself seriously. That's why it worked as an R-rated film. -Tim Miller

I couldn't do what I did in 'Deadpool' without 'Transporter,' categorically. -Ed Skrein

When I was playing Ajax, he thinks he's a hero; he thinks he's saving people. He thinks he's helping Wade Wilson by turning him into Deadpool. -Ed Skrein

I've always been a Marvel fan, always been a 'Deadpool' fan. -Ed Skrein

Deadpool does not exist in any way, shape, or form without me. -Rob Liefeld

Now, in the Liefeld household, I don't tend to share the fact that I created Deadpool with my kids, so when all the video games started coming out where Wade was at the center of them, I couldn't help but smile. -Rob Liefeld

'Deadpool Bad Blood' is a book that long-term fans of Wade Wilson can appreciate it along with newcomers and movie fans. We gave this book everything we had, and I think it shows. -Rob Liefeld

Deadpool was intended, as Cable was, to be tied into Wolverine's history. -Rob Liefeld

As a kid, my favorite book, up until 'X-Men,' was 'Avengers.' What does Captain America have? He has a shield. What does Thor have? He has a hammer. What does Hawkeye have? He has a bow and arrow. That's why Cable came with weapons. That's why Deadpool had swords and machine guns and pistols. It's like, let's weaponize these dudes. -Rob Liefeld

The funniest is the moms who get really angry with me, and they bring their kid who's dressed like Deadpool, and he's 9 years old, and they're scolding me that their little kid can't enjoy Deadpool. -Rob Liefeld

Mercenaries, to me, were always able to switch sides because they're motivated by cash. Deadpool has always been a shifty bastard. -Rob Liefeld

Everyone has embraced the family-friendly Disney approach, which is great. I see all of those movies, and I take my kids. But I grew up on 'Predator,' 'Alien,' and 'Terminator.' People forget, but those were R-rated movies. So 'Deadpool' put its money where its mouth is, and it changed the game. -Rob Liefeld

Unapologetically, absent me, there is no Deadpool. Period. I am the name, the costume, the look, the origin, and the attitude. Great one-liners are the result of other writers. But there's no Deadpool at all in existence without me. -Rob Liefeld

The visual of Deadpool was very informed by Spider-Man. -Rob Liefeld

'X-Force' #1 sold 5 million copies. By default, the second issue dipped and did 1.3 million copies. But the cover of 'X-Force' #2 is Deadpool. It's not X-Force, It's Deadpool. -Rob Liefeld

Deadpool exploded for the youth around 2010 with 'Marvel vs. Capcom.' He was the most popular character. He does kicks, then mocks you as he hits you and dances around you when you hit the ground. -Rob Liefeld

I truly believe there's all the Deadpools that have existed, and there's Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool, who is now the Deadpool for the world. He owns that voice. -Rob Liefeld

'Deadpool' took seven years to get to the motion picture screen, and I use that as my measurement. That tested me and my patience more than anything I could've imagined because the screenplay was so good. -Rob Liefeld

Trust me: I was the most bullish on 'Deadpool.' When I was day one on the set, I said, 'This is going to open at $75 million,' and they all said, 'Shut up, Liefeld; you're jinxing us.' -Rob Liefeld

I love drawing Ryan Reynolds in his Deadpool costume. He looks amazing and is the true embodiment of the Merc with a Mouth! -Rob Liefeld

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

We've gotten into this 'family friend' space, and 'Deadpool' trashes it. -Rob Liefeld

Ryan is Deadpool. Look, Ryan Reynolds, he's gone through that same career arc; the guy is ridiculously talented. He has a huge, huge passion for 'Deadpool.' -Rob Liefeld

Deadpool was introduced as a mercenary and a bounty hunter… because I was so crazy for Boba Fett when I was a kid. -Rob Liefeld

Here's the deal: 25 years' worth of Deadpool. This movie comes out 25 years to the day we published him at Marvel, and you couldn't get a better gift if you're a 'Deadpool' fan. -Rob Liefeld

'Deadpool' was 'Alien.' It's brilliant. It completely works. It's a masterpiece. 'Deadpool 2' is 'Aliens.' -Rob Liefeld

If you spend 90 seconds with Ryan Reynolds, you know he's Deadpool. There is no one else on the planet that has any business being that character, ever. -Rob Liefeld

I think 'Westworld' and 'Hap and Leonard' are two of the greatest things that you can do with this oversized pool of the television medium. -Jimmi Simpson

The stuff we're seeing in 'Deadpool' and 'Harley Quinn' now, Plastic Man was doing in the 1940s. It's a character that was ahead of its time back then and the stories are still funny and still relevant. -Gail Simone

A Negroni demands your full, upright attention. It will not tolerate mindless swigging the way all those sweet summertime drinks do, which is just one reason no one has ever ordered one at a swim-up bar at a resort pool. -Jonathan Miles

A pool at the edge of the ocean is the simplest geometry, yet you feel connected to the sea. In a forest with the mountains in the background, you also feel the connection to nature, yet it's a very complex geometry. I think architecture is about controlling these feelings. -Ma Yansong

I've been on record since 2005 saying we need to find a way to eliminate the use of the pre-existing condition. The way to do that is really to get everyone in the insurance pool, and that way, we'll have people who need health services today, some who need it tomorrow, and some who won't need it for quite some time. -Ron Williams

The basic premise of insurance is the pooling of funds from many to cover the costs of some. There are complicated methods for how to do this, but one fact remains consistent: For insurance to work well, people need to be in and stay in the insurance pool. -Ron Williams

Walk, skateboard, bike, car pool, or use mass transit more, and drive less. -Gretchen Bleiler

I grew up in the Southwest of the U.K., on the coast in Cornwall. I used to keep a marine fish tank outside the house, where we would go down to the tide pools and catch fish and crabs. I think I caught a cuttlefish once. -Sam Palladio

I want my projects to be great, of course. The talent has to come from a diverse pool. Because that's the world we live in. -Marc Platt

We can create more affordable coverage options for all Americans and help patients with pre-existing conditions – without forcing any satisfied Americans to lose coverage they like – through high-risk pools and reinsurance options. -Charles Boustany

We want to make the best television possible. We should be drawing on the entire available pool of storytellers and directors, and we should be expanding that pool and trying to hire the very, very, very best people. That's our job. -John Landgraf

This career is a relentless hustle because Hollywood is crowded with too many smart, talented people pursuing the same dream and the same pool of entertainment investment dollars. And unlike in law or medicine, there are no college degrees required – no barriers to entry. -Jay Chandrasekhar

The 'Sodajerker' podcast is the work of Liverpool songwriting duo Simon Barber and Brian O'Connor. -David Hepworth

Once-dominant games like straight pool and three-cushion billiards have lost ground to eight-ball – the game of choice for millions of tavern league players – and nine-ball, the preeminent tournament game. -Robert Byrne

If the numbers keep mounting, newspapers will eventually have to admit that pool exists and give it some coverage. -Robert Byrne

A game is great, in my view, only if it can be played happily by a sane person of at least average intelligence for several hours a day for fifty years. Both pool and billiards qualify. -Robert Byrne

If you know a good player who is tempted by pool hustling, introduce him at once to a career guidance counselor, a psychotherapist, or a surgeon who does lobotomies. -Robert Byrne

Petty thievery is a more profitable job than pool hustling, which it resembles, requires far less talent and training, and is equally devoid of promise. -Robert Byrne

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

It's funny: being green to me was ingrained because my parents were always trying to save money, save water, turn off the lights, or arrange a carpool. I don't think my parents even know what it means to be green, but they were. -Su-chin Pak

Growing up, I was a water baby. We lived near a lake, had a pool in our backyard, and as soon as I was old enough, I joined a swim team. By 10, I was winning local events. -Victoria Arlen

In film, if you've got to do a scene in a swimming pool, you do a scene in a swimming pool. If you've got to blow up a car, you blow up a car. In theater, you can't do that, and therefore, you have the opportunity to engage the audience's imagination in a way that's rich. -John Tiffany

My perfect day would be spent poolside with some friends. -Camila Mendes

India is a fertile ground for entrepreneurs, given its large pool of world-class talent and resources. India's ability to generate wealth and create social good will come if we let entrepreneurs flourish by encouraging and enabling innovation. -Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw

There's something very special about playing for Liverpool. -Mohamed Salah

Ever since I was a kid, I had been a Liverpool fan – they were my favourite Premier League club. -Mohamed Salah

It's always good when you see your name with legends of a club like Liverpool. It's a different feeling, and I'm very happy about that. -Mohamed Salah

I even used to play as Liverpool on the PlayStation on 'FIFA' when I was 18 or 19, as Steven Gerrard, Sami Hyypia, Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen, and Xabi Alonso. -Mohamed Salah

I mowed yards with my grandpa at $10 a pop for awhile. I painted numbers on curbs. I cleaned swimming pools. I usually did all of that over the summer, and then I'd continue to do the yard part during the year as I went to school. -Kevin Harvick

Anything is better than sitting around waiting for the right movie to come along. I lose my edge when I'm sitting around the pool not working. -Tim Matheson

There were many times eating ramen noodles and sitting on a friend's couch watching ESPN where I was like, 'This is not what I thought California was going to be like. I thought it was going to be pools and cocktails with umbrellas in them and Maseratis, but this ain't it.' -Ted Raimi

I would say, if you come out, they can't take away how you play football. That was the thing for me: once I did come out, it's not going to affect my diving. I can still perform, no matter what anybody else thinks of me. I'm judged for what I do in the diving pool. -Tom Daley

You can only do so much in the gym or pool. Seventy per cent of it is physical, but the final 30 per cent is down to the mental capacity to actually control what you can do in competition. -Tom Daley

I want to create this pool of talent to draw from, and I hope that people get inspired to make more web series and bring them to me to help develop. -Jay Ellis

Even China's leaders routinely let the news media pool in, though they do their best to ignore them. -David E. Sanger

Diversity and inclusion of women and underrepresented minorities in science should not affect the way education is handled or research is carried out. So diversity should not be a problem but rather an opportunity to involve a large talent pool. -Mildred Dresselhaus

',Alive' stems from emotional growth and contentment. Before writing the song, I was swimming in a pool of hurt, guilt and spiritual discomfort. Instead of drowning, I decided to embrace these feelings and express gratitude for the lessons learned. With this new-found sense of life, I am stronger and happier than ever. -Ravyn Lenae

There are always ridiculous things on television or on the Internet that make people go, 'Did you see that?' That could be anything from a clip from the 'Real Housewives' to someone jumping off their roof and missing the pool to a zillion other things. -Joel McHale

I grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California in the 1970s. My friends and I were into bicycle motocross and into skateboarding in empty swimming pools. Those activities shaped my generation. -Scott Borchetta

I like a good pool party. -Miles Teller

I grew up in a place called Port Harcourt, Nigeria, the youngest of four. What I remember most about Nigeria was the ease. I would play by the pool, have fun with friends. -Yvonne Orji

In Liverpool, where I live, we have a brilliant library which has been refurbished, and I like going there. -Shaun Evans

I still have some synchronized swimming moves in my back pocket from camp when I was 8. I can really wow people at a pool party. -Sarah Rafferty

Al Qaeda is a racially diverse organization that is well aware of its dependence on a labor pool dominated by Arab Muslim men. It also has an adaptable and fluid counterintelligence mind-set. -Malcolm Nance

Vegas is a testing ground for the human soul. What are our values, especially in a time of crisis? Work with Cirque du Soleil, and you learn that quickly. The former socialist street performers who now throw parties by the pool with Brazilian models, oh yes! -Robert Lepage

Summer at the Hollis household is all about us getting together and enjoying the pool, and Fourth of July is probably one of my favorite holidays to do just that. -Rachel Hollis

I like the odd day relaxing by the pool, but I couldn't stand to sunbathe for an entire week. -Theo Paphitis

Whoever is playing with me, they participate in the arrangement; I learned from Craig Street to really pool the stories and the skill and the voices of everybody around you on the bandstand to build an arrangement in the moment. -Lizz Wright

You can go onto that stage every night, and it's always the equivalent of going onto the topmost diving board, and you don't know if there's any water in the pool. -Glenda Jackson

'Anthems' was a harsh indictment of American foreign policy; the video for the first single featured an American flag engulfed in a pool of oil, imagery which might have been risque in 2002, but seemed unimaginably passe in the last year of Bush's presidency. -Andrew Shaffer

I love massive books: books so big, like bricks, you could drown yourself in a pool with them if you're not careful. -Mark Manson

I love the Shore at Katathani in Thailand! They have the best pool. -Eva Gutowski

I think I'm okay; I got a pretty good shot when I concentrate. I like pool. -Gza

In Germany, the body is treated rather differently than in the U.K. or U.S. I grew up with a swimming pool in our garden and a sauna in our basement. -Juergen Teller

I was given this beautiful coffee table book of Soviet architecture for my birthday. It has a lot of holiday camps, swimming pools, theatres, and buildings that were built for leisure activities. Incredible architecture in the most obscure places. It's a little bit sad, because a lot of it has been left to fall apart. -Roisin Murphy

'Deadpool' is massively successful because they made a very unique movie. That uniqueness and originality, try to imitate that. Not, 'How about let's try to do 'Deadpool' on a train.' -Lexi Alexander

Trans-dating is hardcore, and it's really scary. And that's coming from me, someone who couldn't be dating in a more open-minded Manhattan pool of artsy boys and creative folk. Not saying it all sucks. I'm just saying it's not easy. -Hari Nef

My first-ever job was when I was 14 or 15 in Washington, D.C., a job that I got through Marion Barry's summer-youth-employment program. It was working in the locker room of a public swimming pool, deep inside Anacostia in Southeast D.C., about five to 10 minutes from my house. -Jeffrey Wright

With 'Deadpool' and 'Logan,' they are trying to do different things. -David Harbour

You don't read many positive things about Iran in the press, which is depressing, but when I go back to my grandparents' house in the hills, and I'm sitting by the pool, sipping a bootleg Turkish beer, watching a pirate DVD, eating my grandma's cooking… you realise there is a real bridge between politics and country and people. -Kayvan Novak

Not to sound corny, but if life is a sport, if you're moving to dive on a fumble or pick up a basketball in transition or pivoting to grab your toddler so he doesn't fall into a pool… those are real life movements. -Gunnar Peterson

I saw the Beatles play the Cavern in Liverpool when I was 16. They had attitude: Onstage, they were like a four-headed monster. -Lemmy

The Beatles were from Liverpool. It's a hard town. The Stones weren't the hard men. They just dressed up. The Beatles were the hard men. -Lemmy

I prefer Liverpool. The way we play is good for all of our players. -Sadio Mane

A good thing for footballers is not to think too much, especially when you've got to move to a big team like Liverpool, because that's when you start to confuse your mind. -Sadio Mane

We are Liverpool, we are strong, and we can beat any team in the world. -Sadio Mane

The power of Liverpool Football Club is the collective. We always do everything together; this is our power. -Sadio Mane

There was interest from a lot of clubs, not just Manchester United, but as soon as I knew Liverpool were interested, I just felt it was the right club with the right coach. It was right for me to come here. -Sadio Mane

Liverpool are a massive club with a big history that has won many trophies over the years, and as soon as I was told of the possibility to come here, and I knew the manager wanted me, I said yes. -Sadio Mane

The Premier League is the best competition in the world, and it's not easy to win a league with great teams like Man United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Man City, and Arsenal as rivals. -Luka Modric

In England, there are big games but nothing like the Clasico. Manchester United versus Liverpool is a really great match, probably the best over there. But Barcelona-Madrid is different to any other game in the world. -Gerard Pique

People talk about the history of Manchester United or Liverpool, but look what Arsenal achieved with the team of Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira. -Kaka

I have been a big admirer of Coutinho, and he can be a very important player for Liverpool and Brazil. -Kaka

My best Champions League moment was when Milan won in 2007 against Liverpool. That was the biggest moment for me in the Champions League. -Kaka

I hate the idea of anyone thinking that I don't put a lot of thought about the cost to taxpayers. I make our ministers travel to events in vans to pool together. -Jacinda Ardern

I don't want to be the one that says Liverpool can go on and win the league. But there's a real belief and togetherness in the squad; we're all working for each other. We all know what the dream is at the end of it. -Raheem Sterling

Before I went to Liverpool, I was a striker and then sometimes a No. 8 or No. 10, and my thing was shooting, finishing, and long-distance shots. -Raheem Sterling

I remember being coached at Liverpool, and there was another kid called Toni Silva, and they said, 'You know, instead of blasting the ball, and it goes in, do like Toni does: pass it around the keeper.' -Raheem Sterling

Everyone's dream, growing up, is seeing themselves in an away kit somewhere in a sunny country. But, in reality, I'm happy to be playing for Liverpool and trying to win trophies. -Raheem Sterling

My favourite team is Liverpool. My favourite player is Michael Owen, and I would like to play there. -Kevin De Bruyne

My game is characterised by consistency, and that is what has brought me to Liverpool and helped me grow and develop. I like to make simple saves. I don't make saves for the camera. -Alisson

If not the biggest, the Premier League is one of the biggest leagues in the world. It's very competitive, and I find that exciting. I like challenges. I came here because it will be a great challenge for me at a very high level of football and be among these great players in a great team like Liverpool. -Alisson

In Rome, I was already trying to help in shaping the game, but the style was a little bit different to what we do at Liverpool. -Alisson

I decided with my head to move to Liverpool, but my heart was full of tears. I spent two special years in Rome. My daughter was born there, and I have a lot of friends there outside of football. -Alisson

I've got big ambitions, and so do Liverpool, and now I'm playing in the biggest league in the world. -Alisson

Liverpool is a great club worldwide. I'm here, and I will give my best as always. I'm working hard; my thoughts are on the team's goals, making a good season. -Philippe Coutinho

It's just such an honour to be spoken about by Steven Gerrard in such a way, that I might also become such a great player for Liverpool. He is an icon, one of my personal football heroes. -Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool is a great club, and we have to put Liverpool back in the Champions League. -Philippe Coutinho

In Brazil, the one who wears 10 constructs the attacks. That is what I will try to do here. The number I have at Liverpool does not give me any added pressure. The pressure I have is to play well and do my best for the team. I know that I am representing a huge club, and I want to enjoy my football. -Philippe Coutinho

Deadpool is a hero that you want to love. -Hyuna

Liverpool are a team that have no fear. -Paolo Maldini

Liverpool are a team that is essentially very defensive; caution is at the heart of their game. -Paolo Maldini

Once Liverpool go ahead, they are dangerous because it becomes hard to find space to break them down, especially if you are not playing all that brilliantly. -Paolo Maldini

Certainly my dream is to lift the Premier League trophy with Liverpool, and that's what we are trying to do. -Roberto Firmino

When I came to Liverpool, in a €20 million transfer, I was expensive. -Roberto Firmino

I'd be happy if I was part of a Liverpool side that kept winning titles, cups, and made history. -Roberto Firmino

I just want to win and carrying on winning for Liverpool. -Roberto Firmino

Liverpool are one of the greats in Europe, and being able to be part of the history of such a great club is gratifying to me. -Roberto Firmino

I love Liverpool – it's a great city to live in. -Roberto Firmino

Playing for Liverpool at Anfield is a very joyous and positive experience. -Roberto Firmino

I love playing for Liverpool FC. The fans are excellent and fantastic in how they support us all the way. They support us throughout the games, and the work they do during the match is beautiful. -Roberto Firmino

We all know how big Liverpool Football Club is. It is a club with a lot of tradition. -Roberto Firmino

I just worry about playing well and helping Liverpool go as far as possible in the Premier League. If that is achieved by me scoring goals, even better. -Roberto Firmino

I am very happy here at Liverpool. It's a very good club at a very high level – a big club. -Roberto Firmino

I could say Liverpool is the first big club I will play for. It's a massive chance for me to show what I can do. -Roberto Firmino

I think the Brazil system is similar to the one we use at Liverpool, with lots of movement, players open out wide, and quality midfielders who join the attack and score goals. -Roberto Firmino

Everyone hears stories about what it means to be a Liverpool player, but, until you live it personally, you cannot really understand it. -Roberto Firmino

It's not like I wake up and think, 'Oh God, I have to go to the gym.' It's just pretty much a given. I do cardio, light weights, and a good stretch, and I always try to get to the pool for at least a 15-minute swim. -William Fichtner

After being signed by WWE, Edge, Christian, Mark Henry, Giant Silva, Test and Ken Shamrock all trained at my house. I had a pool room with an indoor pool and a garden behind it. I took out the garden and put in a wrestling ring. -Bret Hart

Hopefully I will have a long career at Liverpool. -Philippe Coutinho

At Liverpool, I studied Steven Gerrard all the time and improved my game that way. Here, I absorb all I can from Iniesta and Messi. -Philippe Coutinho

When a big player leaves, a big player leaves. You're at a big club like Liverpool, another big player will come in the future. -Philippe Coutinho

I have no idea if anyone is watching me from the Brazil national team, but the best way to have a chance is to do well for Liverpool. -Philippe Coutinho

I gave 100 per cent, 100 per cent of the time I played for Liverpool. Five years, I did everything I could possibly do. I love this club, but it is time for a new adventure. -Philippe Coutinho

I have so many memories and have so many people to thank at Liverpool. I have to improve as a player. In my head, I always think this. -Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool have always shown a great warmth to me, so when they came to me with a proposal, I did not need to think twice to renew the contract. I have always been looked after very well by this football club, and I am very happy at this football club, so I didn't even have to think about it. -Philippe Coutinho

I'd be happy if I was part of a Liverpool side that kept winning titles, cups, and made history. I just want to win and carrying on winning for Liverpool. -Philippe Coutinho

Everybody's all up on the EDM bandwagon now, because it's, like, another viable conduit for traditional pop music to ride for a bit so they can get out of their little stagnant pool and make a dance hit. -Deadmau5

I swam underwater for 50 meters at a time and walked the length of the pool underwater, with a brick in each hand, all on a single breath. -David Goggins

In the Premier League, there is a team above the others. This team is Manchester City. Then there is a very good team, Liverpool. -Maurizio Sarri

I watch football sometimes at home, but in my downtime, I play pool with my friends. Darts – I enjoy darts now, and when there is a game not coming up, I enjoy playing golf as well. I'm not very good at golf, but I enjoy being able to relax. -Ashley Cole

Liverpool is one of the best teams in the world – everybody can see that – and now we have to do it on the pitch. -Xherdan Shaqiri

Of course it's a big change from Stoke to Liverpool. Liverpool is a big, big team. -Xherdan Shaqiri

I'm sure, ever since I was really young, that happiness is not a bottle of champagne and a girl and a limousine and a swimming pool. -Stromae

I knew about boxing, as my dad could fight. He had a successful security firm in Liverpool, and I'd see him come back from a jog before shadow boxing in the back yard. I'd watch and replicate what he was doing, as kids do. It's funny how things turn out. -Tony Bellew

When Liverpool came in, it was one of those situations that I just wanted to get up the M6 as quick as possible, sign on the dotted line, and get to work. -Daniel Sturridge

We used to go to Palm Springs, ditch school when I was in eleventh grade, and go hang out poolside with our ghetto blaster and listen to Pat Metheny 'Offramp' and kind of trip out on a lot of his music. -Robert Trujillo

I admire Arsenal and the philosophy that the young players have. Liverpool, with their Spanish players, they also have an incredible squad. And Manchester United and Chelsea are teams that are very big, like Real Madrid and Barcelona, with money and incredible players. -Juan Mata

When I left Liverpool, my aim was to get into the top six, and I was looking for a team that could get involved at that level. West Ham were brilliant at the time. They'd signed a lot of players, had a lot of money. But they've had problems since then. -Craig Bellamy

I always tell people, good coaches are a dime a dozen. Good coaches that are good people, good husbands, good fathers, that love their players and are passionate about doing things in a way that I believe is important, that pool gets real small. -Dabo Swinney

I grew up dancing and singing, and I pool together my life experience and relationships and put it into work. -Ashley Roberts

I was at a local club, Penketh United, and Mike Glennie, a Manchester United scout, came to watch me. He spoke to my grandad and offered me trials, but there was also interest from Liverpool, and I had to pick – I was only young, but obviously my heart was with United at the time. -Jesse Lingard

I first realised I was good at football when I started getting scouted by United, Liverpool, Everton; clubs like that had a lot of interest at an early age, and you kind of know then you're on the right path. I was about six years old and had to sign a contract at nine. -Jesse Lingard

After filming the first season of 'Poldark,' I went with the cast on a trip to Iceland. We started off in Reykjavik and then went into the mountains and swam in naturally heated pools. -Eleanor Tomlinson

Liverpool is a great fit for me as a club. It's a huge club, and there is a lot of pressure every time you step out onto that field. I've played in front of the Anfield crowd, and it'll be nice to be on the other side of the fans now. -James Milner

What Liverpool do really well is they try to get you inside but then close you down. -James Milner

To be in the last four of the biggest competition is where you want to be and where Liverpool have been as a club many times in the past. -James Milner

It was at a gym near Liverpool Street. I came off the street – I was just a kid – and I was just excited about getting to punch someone in the face. -Dillian Whyte

It's not easy when you lose Flamini, Hleb, Senderos, Gilberto, and Lehmann. When you lose all these players – and Flamini, for me, was the best player last year – it's really difficult to compete against Chelsea, Man United, or Liverpool. -Patrick Vieira

I became the European amateur champion in Liverpool back in 2008. I visited the Beatles museum, and after the final, I went to a drum and bass disco. -Oleksandr Usyk

When I look at old pictures, I see my son Luciano, not me. Luciano looks identical. That's what's extraordinary, the power of a gene pool. -Marco Pierre White

A little voice keeps telling me an Aston Martin really isn't me, but a louder voice is telling me that, as an England international playing for Liverpool, the old rules no longer apply. -Peter Crouch

Even when I was at the top, playing in the Champions League final for Liverpool and playing at the World Cup for England, I've never let it go to my head. -Peter Crouch

I cannot lie on the beach or by a swimming pool. I think I'm too Nordic to like a lot of relentless sun. -Sandi Toksvig

What is the upside of inequality? I would say that it's a deep pool of properly trained, highly motivated talent that is endeavoring to create innovation that grows our knowledge-based economy. -Edward Conard

I love my family more than life itself, but I can only sit at home by my pool eating barbecue food so many days before I go cuckoo. -Mike Portnoy

I am happy at Liverpool. -Emre Can

Without being disrespectful to Leverkusen, playing for Liverpool helps me more because I am playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, and I have no regrets making this step. -Emre Can

It was an easy decision for me to sign with Liverpool. -Emre Can

If you play for Liverpool, for such a big club, it is always the target: it has to be always to win silverware. -Emre Can

A piece of my heart will always be with Liverpool. -Emre Can

Liverpool FC is a great club, and the fans are amongst the best in the world. -Emre Can

Really, the club is like a big family. The locker-room spirit is also similar to what I had experienced at Liverpool, but I really like it here at Juventus, because it's not just a set of champions. The sense of a team, the group, is strongly felt. -Emre Can

Nobody at Liverpool questions the manager. Jurgen Klopp is a top, top manager. -Emre Can

You can only advise young players to make the step to Liverpool. -Emre Can

I try to show myself at Liverpool, and when I come to the national team, I try to show myself in training or in games. -Emre Can

The big teams will want to avoid Liverpool. Everyone knows we are a very strong side. -Emre Can

I never thought being a Liverpool player would be easy. -Emre Can

Many clubs wanted to know when I was leaving Inter, and Liverpool was one of those clubs, so people were surprised I chose Galatasaray. -Wesley Sneijder

Why Galatasaray and not Liverpool? Because I am a winner – I play for prizes – so I went to Galatasaray because I thought that I would win more at Galatasaray and be champion than at Liverpool, and I think afterwards that I made the right choice. -Wesley Sneijder

I must say I personally prefer the FC Cologne anthem over the Liverpool one. -Lukas Podolski

I try to be as fit as I can, eating well and sleeping well, because I know how intense it is here in the Premier League, especially when you play big games like Liverpool or Tottenham. -Bernardo Silva

Nobody told me to leave Liverpool. I didn't run away from Liverpool. -Loris Karius

I have to cause a stir in Liverpool and do my job really well. If I achieve that, then – and that's what I hope – I will one day get the call from Bundestrainer Joachim Low. -Loris Karius

I want to be in goal and play for Liverpool every week and then win a trophy with the club. That's what everyone wants. I want to do my part and help. -Loris Karius

I had a lil' chub-chub moment from ages 7 to 11. If somebody was teasing, they'd go straight to my fat. I was so insecure, I kept my shirt on in the pool, which is the worst because it sticks to your stomach anyway. -Jason Derulo

At a massive club like Liverpool, people will come and go. It is our job to keep the wheels moving and momentum going. -Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

When a big player leaves, a big player leaves. You're at a big club like Liverpool, another big player will come in the future. -Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

I want to thank the Arsenal fans who've always supported me. But I can't apologise for my decision to leave. I want to get more out of myself. I felt the main thing was taking myself out of my comfort zone. That's why Liverpool shouted out for me. -Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

To play for Liverpool is the dream, the aim, and I can't see it changing to be fair. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

As long as possible, I want to have that relationship with Liverpool, to be a Liverpool player. To say I have done that for the whole of my career is something I have dreamed of being able to say. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool are special. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

I always supported Liverpool. My whole family did! -Trent Alexander-Arnold

The dream is to captain Liverpool. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

There will be goals to achieve along the way, but until I captain Liverpool, I will not be satisfied. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

I'm just a lad playing for Liverpool, trying to achieve his dream, so to see a lad with my name on his shirt – when I grew up having the names of other players on my shirt – it meant a lot. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

There are always opportunities at Liverpool. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

I was about six, and Liverpool had a community summer camp. They sent a few invites to my school and my age group, to my class specifically, and they were like, 'Who wants to go?' So every lad in the class put their hands up, as you'd imagine, so the only fair way was to pick names out of a hat, and luckily, my name was picked out. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

My heart was always set on Liverpool. I always loved the club. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

There is a big emphasis at Liverpool to have an academy that brings through young players. -Trent Alexander-Arnold

I moved to Liverpool to win trophies. -Naby Keita

My father is a huge fan! As far back as I can remember, he has been talking about them. Before I even knew what Liverpool was as a kid, he was mad about them. -Naby Keita

As a kid, we used to play wearing a Liverpool shirt in the streets. -Naby Keita

Eight is a number I always liked. It's also the number my dad wore when he played football, so it's special to me. I am aware that it's a big number here at Liverpool, and I am very excited to wear it. -Naby Keita

Since I signed for Liverpool, my dad has spoken to me a lot about how much he loved them. -Naby Keita

When I was a child, that really was in my mind, to play for a great club like Liverpool. -Naby Keita

When I was small, my local team actually played in Liverpool kits. -Naby Keita

When I was young, I didn't know a lot about Liverpool, but when I was coming here, my father told me about the history of the club. -Naby Keita

The first time I retired, only Sir Alex Ferguson and I knew that the last league game of the 2010-11 season against Blackpool was to be my final game at Old Trafford. I was a little bit sad, but I am not one for tears. The end of a career comes to us all, and there is not a lot you can do about that. -Paul Scholes

Mothering is just so different now from the way it was before. Especially with my mom. She was like the anti-helicopter mom. She was like an inflatable-tube, blow-up-flamingo-in-the-pool mom. Her philosophy was, the situation will declare itself. -Ali Wong

The Arab world is erupting, which is extraordinary, and to see it happen is like watching rings spreading on a pool – it goes out; it varies so much. The spontaneity is wonderful, but very often, if it's not well organized, it breaks up, and it peters out. -W. S. Merwin

Sterling is a player that did very well at Liverpool. He is very fast, too, and he is able to create good chances and is always ready to attack and help the team with his speed. -Jesus Navas

If Man United and Liverpool fans feel better by calling me a black monkey in my messages… feel free to carry on if it makes your day better. -Wilfried Zaha

I am both proud and excited at the prospect of working as the Liverpool manager. -Roy Hodgson

I knew off by heart the names of the Real Madrid team that played Liverpool in the European Cup final of 1981. -Rafael Benitez

For me, there is only one club in England, and that's Liverpool. -Rafael Benitez

Chelsea is a big club with fantastic players; every manager wants to coach a such a big team. But I would never take that job, in respect for my former team at Liverpool, no matter what. -Rafael Benitez

Whenever people say things about me, it always comes back to Liverpool – but I cannot just become 'the former manager.' I am a professional football manager. -Rafael Benitez

There are only two or three places in Britain with Catholic and Protestant cathedrals,and Liverpool is one. My wife Montse and I like to go to both of them. -Rafael Benitez

When I arrived at Liverpool, the budget was £20m gross. When I left, it was £17m, but still people said I must win the title. Manchester United had around £50m more every year, but they said I must compete against them. -Rafael Benitez

There are massive clubs with massive amounts of money, and Liverpool were always a little bit behind. But if you create a good team, a good atmosphere, and work hard, you can get there. You can win trophies. -Rafael Benitez

I've seen schools in Detroit where the windows are broken, where there's no heat, and children are sitting with their coats on in class in the middle of a snowstorm. I've also seen schools in California with Olympic-sized swimming pools and cafeterias like five-star restaurants. -Ruby Bridges

After our first week of filming 'Deadpool 2,' Blake Lively got me a candle. It smells really good, and it said, 'To Firefist' on it. -Julian Dennison

'Deadpool' is its own thing, and it's very quirky, breaks out the box, and doesn't follow the rules of normal superhero movies, so it was really important for me to show that kids that look like me, who are chubbier than other kids, that they can be the hero they want – it was a dream of mine to be a superhero, and it's come true. -Julian Dennison

'Deadpool' is a quirky universe, which is all about being outside of the box, unlike a normal superhero film. -Julian Dennison

When you manage Liverpool, you know the Manchester United job is gone. -Brendan Rodgers

When I was at Liverpool, I asked about Van Dijk when he was at Groningen and then at Celtic. But I was told he wouldn't be for us at the time. Van Dijk could have jumped from Celtic to a Liverpool. -Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool give young players a good opportunity. -Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool is one of the superpowers of world football. -Brendan Rodgers

I had a wonderful time at Liverpool. My three and a half years there was a great experience. -Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool is one of the great institutions of the world, and you understand that when you see it from the outside, but you only really get to know when you go inside as manager. -Brendan Rodgers

You can go to Old Trafford as Liverpool manager and get a draw, and it's not a bad result. At Celtic, there's an expectancy to win home and away. -Brendan Rodgers

I know how quickly it can all change. I nearly won the title at Liverpool, and everybody's saying, 'Sign him up' – then, very quickly, I was out. -Brendan Rodgers

When I went in to Liverpool, my job in the first season was to cut the budget. You only need to look at the players who left. Maxi Rodriguez, Alberto Aquilani, Pepe Reina. -Brendan Rodgers

It was important for me, when I left a club like Liverpool, to one, have a breather, but then my next job, I needed pressure. And there's a pressure at Celtic. It's a huge club; there's an expectancy to win every game. -Brendan Rodgers

I guess, as a young girl growing up in Liverpool in the '80s, when unemployment was high, my ideal job would have been to have been Minister for Employment to see, can you solve these problems? Can you get people into work? -Esther McVey

I was raised in inner-city Liverpool, the first in my family to go to university. -Esther McVey

Outdoors, I have a pool, so I usually swim and stuff. It's usually superhot in California, so we swim. -Marsai Martin

As a kid, Liverpool was big for us. -Nuno Espirito Santo

The success of 'Deadpool' and 'Logan' have bolstered our confidence to make edgy, more daring, provocative bold movies that audiences will embrace. -Simon Kinberg

As wild and anarchistic as 'Deadpool''s marketing was in using the Internet, its viral pieces and billboards, 'Logan' was the opposite. We went really analog and old-fashioned, much like the movie itself. -Simon Kinberg

'Deadpool' feels like it exploded out of nowhere, but it was a ten-year development process on that movie. I think it was honed over those ten years. -Simon Kinberg

I hope that 'Gambit' doesn't take ten years, but it takes a little honing to get that tone and that voice exactly right. The character has such a specific voice in the comic, in the same way that Deadpool has a specific voice in the comic, that we want to make sure that we capture that voice on the page. -Simon Kinberg

It's not called quitting if you quit while you ahead. It's about being aware and being strategic enough to know that you got to get out the pool at some point. You got to put your clothes back on and dry off. -Nipsey Hussle

At Liverpool, Jurgen pretty much does everything, and we just follow him. Of course, we've still got leaders within the group to implement his message, but more often than not, we listen and then just do what he says. -Jordan Henderson

When you come to a club like Liverpool, you need to perform straight away and consistently. -Jordan Henderson

I came to Liverpool wanting to stay here for the rest of my career. I certainly didn't want to leave after a year. -Jordan Henderson

For me, Raheem Sterling is a fantastic player, and he's been brilliant for England. I hope he will stay at Liverpool. -Jordan Henderson

In my opinion, there is no better place to be for a footballer than Liverpool. -Jordan Henderson

I knew I had to try and win trophies and be successful and be a big player for Liverpool. -Jordan Henderson

You will always be judged as a Liverpool player but, as a captain, you will be judged on what you win, basically. If you're doing well, and the team is winning everything, you become a very good captain. -Jordan Henderson

There are different pressures when you come to a club like Liverpool. You have to perform well each week, or people start to question you, and I discovered that as soon as I got here. It was a difficult time, but I hope I got stronger from coping with it. -Jordan Henderson

At Liverpool and England, it's about moving forward and going in the right direction, and you don't want to be left behind by any means. -Jordan Henderson

I suppose when people are criticising you and saying that you are not really worthy of going to such a club as Liverpool, it gives you a little bit more drive and more desire to prove them wrong. And that can only help you in the long run: make you a little bit tougher mentally. -Jordan Henderson

The way we play at Liverpool is with high-intensity football, pressing high up the pitch, winning the ball back quickly, and counter-pressing. -Jordan Henderson

I would say I am more comfortable in the centre of midfield. But when you are at a big club like Liverpool, you maybe get played in positions with which you might not be so familiar. But you have got to learn the different roles, because it gives you a better opportunity to play. -Jordan Henderson

You have got to get to know people, and moving down to Liverpool from the North East was a huge change for me. But, at the same time, you have just got to get on with it, and that is part and parcel of being a footballer. -Jordan Henderson

Obviously, it was an amazing feeling to play for Liverpool for the first time. It was a little bit funny to be playing against Sunderland, but it is still an amazing feeling every time I put on the Liverpool shirt. -Jordan Henderson

Now and again, you may be picking a pass or two in behind, making something happen, but when we're attacking – especially at Liverpool – I'm focusing on protection, being disciplined, being careful, worrying about counter-attacks, things like that. -Jordan Henderson

When you play for Liverpool, there's always pressure, pressure to perform, expectation. Of course, that's the reason why you want to go there. -Jordan Henderson

When you play for Liverpool and England, you have good players around you, and you want to compete with the best. -Jordan Henderson

I have always wanted to fight no matter what position I am in, and whether that is Liverpool or England, I need to do more, and I need to do better because you have younger players, or players get signed for the club who push you and want to take your place, and you have to be better than them. -Jordan Henderson

It is hard to leave your local club. All my family are Sunderland fans, and it is pretty tough because I have had some great years there, but I am looking forward to playing for Liverpool now. -Jordan Henderson

It's in the DNA of Liverpool Football Club to win trophies. -Jordan Henderson

I always say, whether it's Liverpool or England, it's not just me who is a leader. -Jordan Henderson

I have decided that I want one or two seasons in England before the end of my career, and I want it to be at Liverpool. -Rivaldo

When I left Ajax in 1999, I travelled to Liverpool and spoke to Houllier. I was shown around Anfield and also met with the chairman and a couple of the players. I thought about it, but when Juventus came to the table, I came to the conclusion that it would be a bigger challenge to play in Italy. -Edwin van der Sar

Liverpool are a very powerful opponent. -Ernesto Valverde

When I'm out and about or walking my dogs, United fans are coming up to me saying, 'We'd rather City win the league than Liverpool.' It's strange to hear, but I can assure you the United players aren't going to leave a red carpet and say, 'Go on, City, score past us.' -Kyle Walker

I've lived in Liverpool, London, Belfast, Germany, Coventry, Dorset, and Cyprus. -Pete Doherty

Liverpool and London are two places I looked upon as home. -Pete Doherty

There have been some clients who have said, 'In order to compete, I'm going to put a pool in and then sell the house.' That's a terrible idea. -Jonathan Scott

Playing in England was a fantastic experience. In Liverpool, I felt at home and really, thoroughly enjoyed it. -Javier Mascherano

Liverpool is a club where you need to be there to enjoy it. It's not worth owning Liverpool if you are going to always be 20,000 miles away. -Javier Mascherano

My feeling for Liverpool does not mean I'm tied to them. -Javier Mascherano

I didn't have the chance to play at West Ham, but in football, you always have a chance. When I went to Liverpool, I had the chance to show my quality. -Javier Mascherano

I lived three unforgettable years with Liverpool. I will always be grateful for everything to the club and, especially, the fans. From day one, they behaved impeccably and were amazing. -Javier Mascherano

You can get caught up in a lot of things playing for Liverpool. The main thing is to stay grounded. That's something I won't forget. -Joe Gomez

Coming here to Liverpool, with the history of playing young players, it was the place to go to if I was to move. They've not let me down. -Joe Gomez

Liverpool followed me for a long time. When I arrived in the offices there, they showed me cassettes of me in the Under-15s. Everyone knew me. I couldn't believe it. -Divock Origi

Things went so quickly from being a sub in Lille to scoring in the World Cup to signing for Liverpool, but I always had good advice from my parents and my religion to help keep me grounded. -Divock Origi

I am feeling comfortable at Liverpool, and I think that's important. -Divock Origi

As a kid, I dreamed of playing in a warm land with a swimming pool. -Henrik Larsson

If you're writing a bi character, did you look at a lot of bi actors for the role? Did you really go and find people that identified as queer? If you did, then great, and if you didn't find anyone you liked in that pool, well, that's surprising. If you write a character that's trans, the time is now – cast a trans actor. -Stephanie Beatriz

It took time at Everton to build a team so that when we did go to United or Arsenal or Liverpool, we went with a good chance of getting a result. -David Moyes

Gerrard is passionate, and he leads from the front. At times, he has lifted Liverpool to great wins almost single-handedly. -Edgar Davids

I'm happy at Liverpool. There's no reason for me to leave. -Fabinho

Liverpool are known for this 'rock and roll' football. I think I've adapted well to this even if, as a player, I like to hold onto the ball longer. -Fabinho

Before signing with Liverpool, I talked to Roberto Firmino about what the club is like and what the city is like. He spoke well of the club and the city and other people who have already visited the city. The information only gave me more motivation to come to Liverpool. -Fabinho

Sadio Mane is an excellent player. Before I came to Liverpool, I saw him on TV, and I liked him a lot. -Fabinho

As soon as Liverpool declared their interest in signing me, it was a simple decision to make. A club with Liverpool's history wants you? Come on, you just pack your bags and go. It will be an honour to wear the famous red shirt. -Fabinho

It's a different playing style than at Monaco; there were two of us in midfield there, and here at Liverpool, there's three. -Fabinho

I have adapted well in Liverpool. -Fabinho

Playing for Liverpool, I know what the relationship between the fans and the club is like. With every player, you can see the desire to win, the desire to show that Liverpool are the best and deserve to win the league. -Fabinho

I know it is really hard to win a league, especially the Premier League, but we have experienced players here at Liverpool. -Fabinho

To follow in the footsteps of Dirk Kuyt would be sensational. He triumphed at Feyenoord and has had great success at Liverpool. -Georginio Wijnaldum

Liverpool will always buy good players, even if they already have good players. That's normal. I think it has to be normal for a club like Liverpool because that means you're a big club. -Georginio Wijnaldum

Before I signed for Liverpool, I was playing for Newcastle as a No. 10 – basically, I was always attacking. I didn't have to do much defensive work; I didn't play as the No. 6 or the No. 8. -Georginio Wijnaldum

I want to be remembered as a Liverpool player who was part of something special. -Georginio Wijnaldum

You want to be able to look back and feel you were part of Liverpool's great history – win something here, and they will always remember you. -Georginio Wijnaldum

Liverpool is a great club. -Georginio Wijnaldum

We play for Liverpool. It is always our intention to win. All the players here want to compete at the top and win. The manager does not have to say to us, 'We want to win a trophy.' -Georginio Wijnaldum

I like Liverpool. I like the club, and I like the fans. The people appreciate me. That's the most important thing. -Georginio Wijnaldum

At a club like Liverpool, you have to win everything possible, and you have to play for both – the Premier League and the Champions League. -Georginio Wijnaldum

I remember my last game for Newcastle in the pre-season, when their fans were singing that they wanted me to stay, but when the opportunity came to play for a great club like Liverpool with such a great history, I had to take it. I hope they understand why I made that choice to go to Liverpool. -Georginio Wijnaldum

From the moment I first spoke with him, I knew that I wanted to join Liverpool. I fell for Klopp – hook, line, and sinker. -Georginio Wijnaldum

I was only one year at Newcastle, but that time there meant a lot to me. I met some great people who helped me to play good games in the Premier League, and it was because of them I got the move to Liverpool. -Georginio Wijnaldum

The women who are pool waitresses are another worldly species. They're half-desert lizards. They never have sunburns. -Iliza Shlesinger

When I am out in Liverpool, the fans come up and talk to me. But I cannot take in everything they say because I don't understand all of it. -Marouane Fellaini

People in Liverpool are very welcoming. -Xabi Alonso

I have played at Liverpool, a special club, grown as a player and won titles. -Xabi Alonso

When I was a Real Sociedad player, we lost on every occasion we visited Camp Nou. Maybe that is normal for a small team, but with Liverpool and Real Madrid, you expect more. -Xabi Alonso

At Liverpool, I used to read the match day programme, and you'd read an interview with a lad from the youth team. They'd ask age, heroes, strong points, etc. He'd reply, 'Shooting and tackling.' I can't get into my head that football development would educate tackling as a quality, something to learn, to teach, a characteristic of your play. -Xabi Alonso

I will always be grateful to Liverpool. It is a very special club. -Xabi Alonso

Leaving Liverpool was the toughest decision I had to make in football because I was in an exemplary club, a proper football club, with a lovely and sharing stadium that meant a lot of things to me. The fans are the best in the world, no doubt about that, and I was comfortable there. -Xabi Alonso

Each time I watch a Liverpool game, I feel something special, especially whenever it's at Anfield, because it brings back great memories. -Xabi Alonso

I grew up a lot as a professional and as a person in Liverpool, and I have very strong links to the club and the city. -Xabi Alonso

There are not many better clubs to play football for than Liverpool. -Xabi Alonso

Bayern is a big club and a big brand, but on a daily basis, it's a family club. You get to know the physios, the kit man, the chefs. It's also a club that's very close to the supporters. That proximity to the fans makes it special. That was surprising. In Liverpool and Madrid, there's more distance. -Xabi Alonso

The only thing I regret is not winning the Premier League with Liverpool. I'll never know how that feels and experience the reaction of the city, as I did after Istanbul. It hurts because I know the people want the league title more than anything. -Xabi Alonso

I still feel I have a special connection with Liverpool fans. -Xabi Alonso

I stay in contact with friends I have in Liverpool. It's not a normal club; it's so special and very important to me. -Xabi Alonso

I have been lucky enough to be at great clubs, from my hometown club to Liverpool to Real Madrid to Bayern Munich. -Xabi Alonso

Managing Liverpool? Yes, for sure, I have dreamt of that, but first I have to prove myself and prepare. -Xabi Alonso

If I decide somewhere along the way to take my chances as a manager, my link, my commitment, my passion with Liverpool is there. -Xabi Alonso

I've still got Paul Scholes' shirt at home, which I swapped with him once. When I was at Liverpool, he was one of the players I liked most. -Xabi Alonso

In the early Seventies, I bought a dilapidated hotel in north Stoke for about £100,000 and spent the same amount again renovating it, putting in a guitar-shaped swimming pool, painting the bathrooms purple, and installing gold dolphin taps. -Ian Gillan

When I graduated college, I remember all I really wanted was to make enough money to have a swimming pool, because I love to swim, to grow my own fruit. I wanted to have a little plot where I could grow my own oranges and make enough money where I could to take two weeks off a year. I figured if I had that, it was game over. -Jesse Itzler

I was a kiddie pool attendant, and I was a white rapper. That's not going to get you a job on Wall Street. -Jesse Itzler

I like playing video games, so I spend a lot of relaxation doing that, and I live in a big house with a pool, so that is also good fun. -Richarlison

When we were growing up, we supported Liverpool. -Ryan Sessegnon

Our annual school physics trip was always to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, as it's such a good example of Newtonian physics. You can learn about centrifugal force and Newton's first law from the roller coasters, and the Viking long boat is a giant pendulum. It's good for children to understand that science underpins all these brilliant things. -Ben Miller

Our home in Dubai is a beach house, so it's more casual and not formal in its tone. It's a holiday home. We are mostly in the pool or on the beach or in the sun. It's an outdoor place for the family. So there are mudbikes, a boat, football posts, and the pool is heated. -Gauri Khan
