Literature quotes Books Quotes by Famous People

  • I really developed the creative part of the brain. There are no textbooks. You illustrate your own text books and take dictation and have your main lesson on the Middle Ages or whatever and just create your own books. Or they stick an instrument in your hand in first grade and you go into a room filled with violins, cellos and flutes and they're just there for you to just choose what you want to – I've played every instrument.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • I was trouble - and always in trouble. Aged eight I still couldn't read. In fact, I was dyslexic and short-sighted. Despite sitting at the front of the class, I couldn't read the blackboard. Only after a couple of terms did anyone think to have my eyes tested. Even when I could see, the letters and numbers made no sense at all.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • As an actor, you're constantly searching for that great character. Also, being a history buff and learning about people in our past and amazing things that they've done, I came across a book about Howard Hughes and he was set up as basically, the most multi-dimensional character I could ever come across. Often, people have tried to define him in biographies, but no one seems to be able to categorize him.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • I just started reading lots of books and then called the United Nations and asked if they could educate me. The more I got involved, the more I suddenly began to feel useful as a human being and felt like I was finally living as I should be.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • I don't read. I don't watch the TV shows that are about that. I don't read the magazines that make things up about people. I know what the truth is. I don't sort of indulge in my own fodder. I don't really care what they write about me.
    Ashton Kutcher
  • I suppose I tend to like slightly darker things -- people have levelled that on me before and I accept that because in my opinion, if I mention the best movies or the best books, there's always something that's involving slightly darker element of out psyche. I like seeing people under pressure. I like seeing what happens to people when they're under pressure.
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • Often while reading a book one feels that the author would have preferred to paint rather than write; one can sense the pleasure he derives from describing a landscape or a person, as if he were painting what he is saying, because deep in his heart he would have preferred to use brushes and colors.
    Pablo Picasso Quotes
  • I went to China, I didn't want to go, and I went to see the Great Wall. You know, you read about it for years. And actually it was great. It was really, really, really great.
    Andy Warhol Quotes
  • I find myself gravitating towards drama. It interests me. In the books I read, the paintings I like, it's always the darker stuff.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • Were there any books that you could remember reading when you were a kid that you loved or that influenced you?
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
