People quotes Civilization Quotes by Famous People


  • I don’t entertain or act for myself or else I would just act in front of the mirror, so I actually like having an audience and people being effected by stuff that I’m in. I love entertaining and they all happen to come out this year and the more, the merrier.
    Jessica Alba Quotes
  • I was never accepted into the Latin community as a Latina girl, and I was never accepted into the white community as an all-American girl. Hopefully, I can be an example to other people who feel like outcasts.
    Jessica Alba Quotes
  • With FRIENDS, it was all about putting six people together in one setting and watching their lives evolve. In one way, we were the first "Reality" series before Big Brother and Survivor ever came along. Those shows just took the concept one step further and obviously the public has gotten very involved with that.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • Oddly enough in the beginning, I remember going out with Schwimmer and people came up to me and asked me if he was on Friends.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • I did waitress and I was not great, but I loved it. I loved it because I love interacting with people and I love food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner - all those things combined. I liked my job, but I was a bit klutzy and forgetful.
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • Very few people find their real instincts. Every now and then there's an artist who does and who makes something new and actually thickens the texture of life. But it's very rare. You have to be able to be really free to find yourself in that way, without any moral or religious constraints.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • I don’t think people are born artists; I think it comes from a mixture of your surroundings, the people you meet, and luck. It is not hereditary, thank goodness.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • Images also help me find and realise ideas. I look for the suggestion of one image as it relates to another. I look at hundreds of very different, contrasting images and I pinch details from them, rather like people who eat from other people’s plates. When I paint, I want to paint an image from my imagination, and this image is subsequently transformed.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • Since I was seventeen I thought I might be a star. I'd think about all my heroes, Charlie Parker, Jimi Hendrix... I had a romantic feeling about how these people became famous.
    Jean Michel Basquiat Quotes
  • Ridiculous yachts and private planes and big limousines won’t make people enjoy life more, and it sends out terrible messages to the people who work for them. It would be so much better if that money was spent in Africa – and it’s about getting a balance.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • It's not enough to build these institutions. We also have to change the way people think.
    Andrew Carnegie Quotes
  • When you're young you believe it when people tell you how good you are. And that's the danger, you inhale. Everyone will tell you you're a genius, which you are not, and if you understand that, you win.
    George Clooney Quotes
  • An acting career usually has about a shelf life of ten years before people get sick of seeing you. It's a good thing to have a job to fall back on and I really do enjoy directing.
    George Clooney Quotes
  • People thought I was Tom and Nicole's bodyguard. They'd come up and go, "Is it okay if I go up and ask for an autograph?" It was good. I'd charge 'em three bucks a person. Yeah, you gotta make some money off of that.
    George Clooney Quotes
  • When I was a young fellow, I used to learn the dialogue backwards. The point is that in a conversation between two people, you can't have already made the decisions about what you're gonna do. You gotta be very light on your feet. That leads you into areas where conversations can have a much bigger, grander meaning.
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • When I was a little kid, I used to really embarrass my parents. I wouldn't do it on purpose, but they'd have guests over from overseas. I'd be sitting there listening to this strange way of speaking. We had this Canadian guy who used to goldmine in Alaska, and every now and then, he'd go down to Australia and thaw out. I just started doing his voice, and it must have annoyed the hell out of people. They'd start talking and I'd talk back to them in their voice. They could obviously hear that I was doing them. "I don't know, you watch too much TV."
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • For instance, I think one shouldn't always talk about "the government" but about the people who are in the government. One shouldn't always generalize. But if someone hates us from the bottom of their heart, they will see exactly what they want to see in our film.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • Take responsibility for what you want to know. Don't say what other people… This is a conversation that I'm having with you right now. So I'm just telling you right now, okay, just put your manners back in.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I do it because it's fun. I'm not a great mountain climber but things like that excite me. I think a lot of people are going to think that stuff is special effects, but it's not. I'm on the mountain. Throughout the fight scenes, when things come dangerously close, that's all real.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I just want to help people. I'm a helper. For instance, I myself have helped hundreds of people get off drugs. In Scientology, we have the only successful drug rehabilitation program in the world. It's called Narconon.
    Tom Cruise Quotes
  • I haven't deliberately set out to play the blonde bombshell in my movies. In fact, it's probably been quite the opposite. After the success of The Mask, I wasn't offered all that many blonde bombshell parts, to be honest. I think people believed from the beginning that I could actually walk and talk at the same time.
    Cameron Diaz Quotes
  • And I love doing what I'm doing and I'd get out of it if I hated it that much. I've said it many times before: There are much worse problems in the world, people dealing with things that are phenomenally more complicated.
    Leonardo DiCaprio 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
  • Well it's a risk to do a movie of this calibre on a subject matter and a point in history people are not very familiar with. It's a tough subject to sell - so salary-wise you have to make sacrifices to make a certain film happen. I would have been an idiot to pass up the opportunity to work with Mr Scorsese.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • The media has been a lot more intense on everyone. Not just entertainers, politicians, as we know of, with one of our ex- presidents. It's one of those things where people in the public eye are put a lot more under a microscope.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • Certainly after Titanic, where my face was put on every magazine cover around the world and the movie was such a phenomenon, I really had no control over that. So for the last couple of years, media-wise I've been trying to regain some control in what people say about me.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • While growing up, I always felt that environmental issues were constantly overlooked, and I watched people band together for various causes which seemed to come and go, and it was almost like they were going in and out of style.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • Love is the kind of thing that when you fall in love, you know immediately. I love a lot of people in different ways.
    Leonardo DiCaprio Quotes
  • I am a silly person, I joke a lot and I'm very light hearted, so I was able to go into this, saying that I'm going to show the world that I have a sense of humour, that I'm not this rigid person and I'm not so worried about my image and what people think.
    Carmen Electra Quotes
  • There are so many people that have encouraged and assisted my skiing through the years. They know who they are and I hope they know how grateful I am to them. No single individual has been as supportive and instrumental as my wife. Dawn has been my biggest critic (everyone knows how sharp she keeps here pencil) and yet she has managed to coach "the uncoachable". On or off the water she has been my greatest asset. One last thought would be that "the family that foots together stays together".
    Will Ferrell Quotes
  • I'm not one of those people you talk to who studied and loved so and so. I loved the idea of studying everyone. So I would go from watching Saturday Night Live to a big deal before cable was watching The Tonight Show and getting so excited when there a comic was on. It was such a big deal. I remember watching Garry Shandling for the first time and Jerry Seinfeld and watching their differences. I also had a couple of Steve Martin's albums. All of those things put together and SCTV I guess collectively influenced me in different kind of ways.
    Will Ferrell Quotes
  • Hopefully we have made a movie that people are going to find funny and something that can be a shared experience for the entire family in a way that's emotionally satisfying as a story but also works as a comedy and captures the spirit of the holidays all kind of rolled into one.
    Will Ferrell Quotes
  • There has to be some kind of order and some moral code. I don't know how people can function withouta belief in a deity.
    Mel Gibson Quotes
  • Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
    Conrad Hilton Quotes
  • I like to be in control. I'm quite a bossy lady. But producing is a nightmare. It makes a lot of people nervous, particularly when they realise the producer's boyfriend is the star of the film.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • Where I live if someone gives you a hug it's from the heart. I've had these blokes in Hollywood hug me trying to make out I'm their friend and as soon as I turn their back they take out a big bunch of knives and stab me in the back. I feel sorry for these people because they are so shallow.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • I thought I'd become a funeral director when I wasn't going to be an actor.. I thought I would be good at helping some people with the grieving process and with trying to get them to talk about and understand who this person was.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • I don't think the money people in Hollywood have ever thought I was normal, but I am dedicated to my work and that's what counts.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • I think, especially in our business, we meet a lot of people and sometimes you spend so much time being nice to strangers… So, you know, just keep a clear head [and] be nice to each other.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones Quotes
  • Poor Hollywood! These things happen all over the world but what a great backdrop to have Hollywood in our movie. No, but I know people who divorce a lot….and have really nice houses. But I didn't model the character on anyone in particular. And if I did, I would never tell the name.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones Quotes
  • Fortunes are made, and disappear, over the lifetime of a single generation. Today, a person in essence takes his wealth from society just for the duration of his or her lifetime. The next generation has to create it anew.
    Mikhail Khodorkovsky Quotes
  • I know for a fact the work is going to dry up, and people will get bored of me. That's not bitterness, just the truth.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • Acting requires me to be very observant, which means being able to sit in cafes for hours and watch people.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • I think I always disappoint people because they always expect someone very pretty, very done.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • It's also strange when people recognise you in the street and they know you but you don't know them. It's a little weird, but nothing to complain about.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • I really think love is the common denominator. In society we choose to black out the traumatic things that happen in this world whether it be child molestation or something else as horrific. There is a brothel halfway across the world in a country where they are prostituting out five year-old girls. Do we want to face that as a society? Do we want to acknowledge that that exists? No we don't.
    Ashton Kutcher
  • I don't know. I think if people would focus more on their lives and the problems we were talking about earlier that maybe we'd be living in a better place.
    Ashton Kutcher
  • 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
  • Isn’t it also true to say that we’re in a very vain, very appearance conscious world nowadays, people on a whole?
    Jude Law Quotes
  • I think I live inside the plane! I never have time to unpack; I'm always leaving in two days again. I travel a lot, and at the beginning it was really fun. The first time I went inside a plane, I was 15 years old and I had so much fun. I like to travel all over the world and learn [about] new cultures. Not that many people have the opportunity to do that.
    Adriana Lima Quotes
  • I don't think that's what needed to win an Oscar for me. Personally...I think there's other things you can do to show people that you have talent.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • In high school, you kind of mix around with different people, and you become different — you know what I mean? You kind of are that person when you’re in that group of people.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I watch people, I just sit there and kind of observe what's going on around me and see if other people have changed. I know what that looks like and I don't want to be that kind of person. It's bad karma.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • People will always be interested in relationships and infidelity and sex and everything connecting to things going on in their own lives.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • Meeting people is difficult, period. LA is a difficult place to meet people anyway, and Hollywood is such a small community. But I don't make it a rule just to date other actors and people in the entertainment industry. It could work out with me and a dentist. It could work out with me and a lawyer.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • The truth is I've never fooled anyone. I've let people fool themselves. They didn't bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn't argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn't. When they found this out, they would blame me for disillusioning them and fooling them.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • Sometimes wearing a scarf and a polo coat and no make up and with a certain attitude of walking, I go shopping or just looking at people living. But then you know,there will be a few teenagers who are kind of sharp and they'll say, "Hey, just a minute. You know who I think that is?" And they'll start tailing me. And I don't mind. I realize some people want to see if you're real.The teenagers, the little kids, their faces light up. They say, "Gee," and they can't wait to tell their friends. And old people come up and say, "Wait till I tell my wife." You've changed their whole day.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • There's this idea that if you take your clothes off, somehow you must have loose morals. There's still a negative attitude in our society towards women who use a strength that's inherent - their femininity - in any way that might be considered seductive.
    Demi Moore Quotes
  • 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
  • You know, I’ll get recognized when I go for a cup of coffee. I’ve been working a lot, so I haven’t really noticed things changing, or anything different about my life. Yeah, people recognize me, and it’s all very sweet and very nice, but it’s not an imposition in any way. In fact in London, where I live, everybody leaves me alone. Nobody recognizes me. That’s the way I’d like to keep it.
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • Everyone wants to understand art. Why don’t we try to understand the song of a bird? Why do we love the night, the flowers, everything around us, without trying to understand them? But in the case of a painting, people think they have to understand.
    Pablo Picasso Quotes
  • I'm one of those people you hate because of genetics. It's the truth.
    Brad Pitt Quotes
  • The fact that people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate those basic human emotions.. the people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when painting them. And if you say you are moved only by their color relationships then you miss the point.
    Mark Rothko Quotes
  • I was something of a leader in my neighborhood. Much the way it is today, people either liked me a lot, or they didn't like me at all. In my own crowd I was very well liked and I tended to be the kid others followed.
    Donald Trump Quotes
  • Surround yourself with people that are full of ideas, and people that are not going to be "yes-men." Surround yourself with smart, truthful, honest people.
    Donald Trump Quotes
  • I think every painting should be the same size and the same color so they're all interchangeable and nobody thinks they have a better painting or a worse painting... Besides even when the subject is different, people want the same painting.
    Andy Warhol Quotes
  • When I started out, art was doing down the drain. The people who used to magazine illustrations and the covers were being replaced by photographers. And when they started using photographers, I started to show my work with galleries. Everybody also was doing window decoration. That led into more galleries. I had some paintings in a window, then in a gallery.
    Andy Warhol Quotes
  • During the 1960s, I think, people forgot what emotions were supposed to be. And I don’t think they’ve ever remembered.
    Andy Warhol Quotes
  • Well, I think the people who buy art now are these younger kids who have a lot of money.
    Andy Warhol Quotes
  • The fact is that in Australia, like in England, we have a government-run drama program, so you´ve got people who are seriously well-trained and know their craft and have a great work ethic. That extrapolates into a great attitude and talent.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • When it’s all said and done I would like to look back and think that I help to make modelling a possibility for a greater number of people. I don’t do things that I will regret in the future. I tend to err on the side of caution. Not to mention the fact that the present world I reside in would not have been possible without my past. I am most proud of being able to represent my family and community with honour and dignity.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • There's nothing better than sitting outside on the deck at La Bottega on a hot summer's day surrounded by magnolia trees and white lanterns. The range of people who go there is just so diverse and the range of food on offer is a real treat. It's the perfect place to pop in to after work.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • Chic was just a word that never popped into my head. Functional, yes; fashionable, lovely. But to hear "chic" from Karl of all people was beyond exciting.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • Don’t just show pictures of starving children. That’s not all there is. I saw people struggling to survive and making it. I saw families holding together. I saw kindness and beauty, not just bombing and death. I heard beautiful stories, but that’s not what the media shows us. I want to go back live there again some day. It’s a beautiful country and it has an amazing culture and history. If you are going to tell a story, tell the whole story.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • 'The story about GE that hasn't been told is the value of an informal place. I think it's a big thought. I don't think people have ever figured out that being informal is a big deal.
    Jack Welch Quotes
  • Look, the worst thing a person does is fire somebody. Or lay somebody off. It's the most unpleasant moment of a leader's life. That's why people don't do it.
    Jack Welch Quotes
  • You hang around with good people, you play a lot of golf, and you have a pretty good life. That's what success is all about. It's getting people you like, who want to take the hill with you, who want to win, who have the passion. This is not rocket science.
    Jack Welch Quotes
  • I was intrigued and enormously drawn to extremism by people who had blown their lives or who had taken their lives outside the normal conventions of society.
    Brett Whiteley Quotes
  • Everyone kind of talks about how great '70s' movies are and the wardrobe that we had, the feel; you kind of can see people's attraction to it. A lot of it was taking a look at old Starsky & Hutch episodes, because even though I'd grown up, that was one of the first cop shows that I was into.
    Owen Wilson Quotes
  • I'm not going to be in a movie where people are being shot which eliminates almost all roles. I just won't do it. I don't believe in it and I believe that the imagery of films is very powerful, more powerful than people give it credit for being. And to say it's a reflection of society is a cop-out. So it's not what I choose to do because I can't justify it in terms of the way I lead my life.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • You're dealing with millions of people everyday, and it's very easy for something to be misinterpreted, so my intention is always, regardless of what the show is --whether it's about sibling rivalry or wife battering or children of divorce -- for people to see within each show that you are responsible for your life, that although there may be tragedy in your life, there's always a possibility to triumph.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • There have been times when I have been unhappy, but I realize that I created that unhappiness myself because I was so busy worrying about the next thing. I was worried about how I was going to fit into a certain image that other people had of me. But not any more. I feel I'm back in control of my life now, personally and professionally.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • I was in the middle of a show with some white supremacist, skinheads, Ku Klux Klan members, and in the middle of that show, I just had a flash, I thought, "This is doing nobody any good, nobody." And I had rationalized the show by saying, "Oh, people need to know that these kinds of people are out here." I won't do it anymore.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • I couldn't do the kinds of shows that I see some other people do, I just couldn't. I've reached a level of maturity in this work myself. There was a time, when I first started out, that it was far more exploited.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
