Thinking quotes Thinking Quotes by Famous People


  • This industry has definitely made me think about me being a Latin girl, up until I was 18 and did "Dark Angel" and Jim basically, “You are the future of the race.” And that basically what "Dark Angel" was that you are basically a mixture and you’re not going to talk about it. It’s done and you are just a human being going through the struggle of whatever you are going through on your journey.
    Jessica Alba Quotes
  • From a very early age, I remember thinking that adults were always acting like assholes. I couldn't understand why I had to respect them. My pre-school teacher forced me to write right-handed when I was left-handed. I didn't get why I had to change. Nobody could give me a reason. I have had a big problem with authority ever since.
    Jessica Alba Quotes
  • I don't think about what happened yesterday. If I think too much, it kind of freaks me out.
    Pam Anderson Quotes
  • It's a lot of accumulated joy and tension and all kinds of emotions just pouring out of all us. We've all been preparing for this day and we all knew that one day we would just have to move on with our lives and careers even though we all love this show and love working together. But it's still an incredibly emotional time, especially for me with a lot of journalists asking me how it feels about FRIENDS coming to an end. It's started to make me think very deeply about what it's all meant to me and that's made me ever more emotional!
    Jennifer Aniston Quotes
  • I was a late starter in everything. I think I was kind of delayed.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • I paint for myself. I don’t know how to do anything else, anyway. Also I have to earn my living, and occupy myself. I think that all human actions are designed to seduce, to please.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • The life I've lived happen to be more profoundly curious than my work. Then sometimes, when I think about it, I'd prefer everything about my life to blow up after I die and disappear.
    Francis Bacon Quotes
  • Flesh and meat are life! If I paint red meat as I paint bodies it is just because I find it very beautiful. I don’t think anyone has ever really understood that. Ham, pigs, tongues, sides of beef seen in the butcher’s window, all that death, I find it very beautiful. And it’s all for sale—how unbelievably surrealistic!
    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
  • I don't think about art when I'm working. I try to think about life.
    Jean Michel Basquiat Quotes
  • I thought I was going to be a bum the rest of my life.
    Jean Michel Basquiat Quotes
  • Once we get comfortable as a company, I like to push the boat out again. My wife keeps saying, "Why? Why? You're fifty. Take it easy. Let's enjoy it." But I'm in a fairly unique position. Yesterday, the first of nine hundred new trains arrived in the UK and went into service. We are going to transform Britain's rail system from the worst in the world to the best. If you can do a few things like that, when the body gives out, you can say you've lived a good life. If I put all my money in the bank and drink myself to death in the Caribbean, I just think that would be a waste of the fantastic position I've found myself in.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • Having a virtual self has been amazing and has certainly made diary arrangements easier to plan! Seeing as Virgin is going digital, I thought it highly appropriate to do the same.
    Richard Branson Quotes
  • It's not enough to build these institutions. We also have to change the way people think.
    Andrew Carnegie Quotes
  • To continue much longer overwhelmed by business cares and with most of my thoughts wholly upon the way to make more money in the shortest time, must degrade me beyond hope of permanent recovery. I will resign business at thirty-five, but during the ensuing two years I wish to spend the afternoons in receiving instruction and in reading systematically.
    Andrew Carnegie Quotes
  • I'm too wrapped up in my work to think about children, I would need to show myself that I'm able to sustain a good long-term relationship before I could even imagine what being a father would be like.
    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
  • You can't think control; you think of releasing feelings seldom expressed and interacting with others until you create something better and you don't know what it is at the beginning. It takes a lot of internal security, a lot of self-mastery, before you can even assume that risk. And the people who like to control their time, money, and things, tend to try to control people, taking the efficiency approach, which in the long run is very ineffective.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • Without valuing interdependence and abundance thinking, you won't be able to keep first things first. Some people never understand these realities. They fall back into independence and scarcity thinking. Those perspectives are more a function of scripting than of anything else. But we can change the script.
    Stephen Covey Quotes
  • They (paparazzi) were doing a full back shot of me in a swimsuit and I thought, Oh my God, I have to be so brave. See, every woman hates herself from behind.
    Cindy Crawford Quotes
  • I realized that no matter what I thought in the past about how I constructed a character, I needed to know that the outside shell looked OK. If you're going to be a pirate, wear an eye patch. The more you inform yourself and fuel the internal engine that drives the character, then you get to the point where you can be standing on a hillside saying no dialogue but completely communicating to every person that's watching that film all of those peaks of desperation, joy, sadness and acceptance without saying a single word.
    Russell Crowe Quotes
  • Anybody who thinks there's a change in humanity's desire for base brutality should look at TV ratings for any number of wrestling programs. We might have developed from the chariot to the Ferrari, but the way people treat each other are pretty much the same.
    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
  • It's good to experience Hollywood in short bursts, I guess. Little snippets. I don't think I can handle being here all the time, it's pretty nutty.
    Johnny Depp Quotes
  • I think the thing to do is enjoy the ride while you're on it.
    Johnny Depp Quotes
  • I guess I'm attracted to these off beat roles because my life has been a bit abnormal. The only thing I have a problem with is being labeled.
    Johnny Depp Quotes
  • I can't think of a more recognizable voice than Katherine Hepburn, but she's phenomenal.
    Leonardo DiCaprio
  • I like to travel abroad, I just don't really like the food. I think American food is the best.
    Carmen Electra 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
  • With two children it is very selfish to think that I would be able to continue to dedicate the time and energies to myself. However, I do thoroughly enjoy a good session on the water and striving to remain competitive.
    Will Ferrell Quotes
  • Film, I think, is visceral. It has the power to draw you in and have you experience something on an emotional level that you may not be able logically to explain.
    Mel Gibson Quotes
  • I don't think of myself as either American or Australian really, I'm a true hybrid. It's a good thing for me because both of them are really good countries.
    Mel Gibson Quotes
  • I think it's enhanced every single part of my life. It really, really reminds you of what's important and what brings you great joy. ... I never really knew very many babies before. I had hardly ever spent any time with them. And I just love him. It's heaven.
    Elizabeth Hurley Quotes
  • I went through a big stage of my life where I thought, you know, maybe it would be better to be a vegetarian, so I researched it. In no uncertain terms did I research it. Let's say this represents one cow, which will keep me in food for, let's say, a month. Now that cow needs this much land and food. Well, you can imagine, that cow needs x by x amount of land, and you can grow trees in it. Around that cow, you can have goannas, kangaroos, wallabies. You can have every other single Australian animal in and around that cow.
    Steve Irwin Quotes
  • Australia has already been hit by the bulldozers to grow those cows and sheep. We've got the dams in place, we've got the grazing areas already there. To turn around and say we could farm kangaroos and eat them is an absolute atrocity. Why would you want to eat the Australian icon? That's ridiculous. I'm a proud Australian, a very, very proud Australian. Anyone who thinks that they can grow kangaroos and get cows off the land is not thinking straight. It won't happen.
    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
  • There's something about death that is comforting, the thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.
    Angelina Jolie Quotes
  • Now, I think any lawyer in the world is going to think they're George Clooney after seeing this - "They based him on me!" But I'm very happy with my lawyers. Though I don't think I want to spend the rest of my life with any of them.
    Catherine Zeta-Jones 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
  • An oligarchic system is better than dictatorship and an authoritarian regime. But there's no reason for hope; we still don't live in an oligarchic country. We have been living in a slave-owning state for thousands of years. And we ourselves think there is only one tsar while the rest of us are lackey.
    Mikhail Khodorkovsky Quotes
  • I don't think I can call myself an actress yet. I just don't think my skill level is that high. I hope that with every job it gets better. But until I'm good, I can say I'm trying to be an actor, but I don't think I've completely made it.
    Keira Knightley Quotes
  • The great thing was - and I am very grateful for this - there was a lot of travelling and I got to see some great places - Milan, Rome, London, a lot of the rest of Europe. And I appreciated that - I was being paid to do something that I would never otherwise have done. I loved coming over here for the first time - seeing all the history. The thing is that in America we THINK we've got history, but it's basically not even a scratch on the table, compared to what you've all got!
    Ashton Kutcher
  • I was in my second year when someone said that there was a competition going to win a modeling contract and a trip to New York, and I thought 'Well, a bit of fun......why not?'
    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 say whatever I think and whatever is on my mind, and I just hope that it comes out good. I just try to have a lot of fun.
    Ashton Kutcher
  • I know a lot of Alfie women. No, I really do. Women who I think that power is wielding their sexuality. So there’s misogynism in men, in women..it’s a confusing time…especially when women are being told that power is being on the cover of a magazine and being paid a lot of money, you know what I mean?
    Jude Law Quotes
  • I always think experience obviously counts for a lot and success obviously counts for a lot, but at the same time, if you meet someone who is clear and collaborative and brave and talented then you want to work with them just as much as you want to work with someone who is a tried and tested genius, you know?
    Jude Law Quotes
  • I think for me it’s always been the most recent experience is often the most fun because you just kind of come out of it.
    Jude Law Quotes
  • And I just liked the words. I think the words walk a very, very fine line of being at times, being very much sort of very, very dramatic and other times unbelievably realistic. Personally, to me that's what it's all about - great words. I like great writing, and it was clear that this was great writing.
    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 think I want to be an actress. But first I need to try to get a better accent!
    Adriana Lima Quotes
  • I think it’s a lot more interesting to watch a character go through a transition in a movie. You love her and then you almost want to not like her because she gets mean and gets ‘lost’ and everything.
    Lindsay Lohan Quotes
  • I was overtired and working myself to death. When you're young, you think you can just keep going and going.
    Lindsay Lohan 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
  • I remember one night when I was sitting by myself in my home and I started crying and then laughing when I was thinking about how it's so great that this is happening and you almost can't believe it. It's the strangest but also the most wonderful feeling you can have.
    Eva Longoria Quotes
  • Think of a light fixture with a rheostat control. As you slowly turn it on, the bulb begins to get bright, and then brighter and brighter and finally in a blinding flash is fully lit. As you turn it off it gradually becomes dimmer and at last goes out.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night, 'There must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest.'
    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
  • I really got the idea I must be a star, or something from the newspapermen, I'm saying men, not the women who would interview me and they would be warm and friendly. By the way, that part of the press, you know, the men of the press, unless they have their own personal quirks against me, they were always very warm and friendly and they'd say, "You know, you're the only star," and I'd say, "Star?" and they'd look at me as if I were nuts. I think they, in their own kind of way, made me realize I was famous.
    Marilyn Monroe Quotes
  • When I really believe something I think that I can be persuasive. But not if I don't believe something.
    Demi Moore Quotes
  • I had an essence in my life that I was nothing.
    Demi Moore Quotes
  • I just think about the roles and if people like the films, that's great. I don't think about it strategically, really.
    Cillian Murphy 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 don't have to identify with a character to play them, you just have to understand. There's a difference, I think, between identifying with and understanding?
    Cillian Murphy Quotes
  • If a working class Englishman saw a bloke drive past in a Rolls-Royce, he'd say to himself "Come the social revolution and we'll take that away from you, mate". Whereas if his American counterpart saw a bloke drive past in a Cadillac he'd say "One day I'm going to own one of those". To my way of thinking the first attitude is wrong. The latter is right.
    Kerry Packer 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
  • You shouldn't speak until you know what you're talking about. That's why I get uncomfortable with interviews. Reporters ask me what I feel China should do about Tibet. Who cares what I think China should do? I'm a f---ing actor!
    Brad Pitt Quotes
  • The strangeness will wear off and I think we will discover the deeper meanings in modern art.
    Jackson Pollock Quotes
  • We favor the simple expression of the complex thought. We are for the large shape because it has the impact of the unequivocal. We wish to reassert the picture plane. We are for flat forms because they destroy illusion and reveal truth.
    Mark Rothko Quotes
  • On Modeling: It's harder than you think it is ... It's a lot of long hours, a lot of traveling and a lot of being away from your friends and family.
    Caroline Trentini Quotes
  • I think it's a weakness and you shouldn't do it. Your boss doesn't want to see it; nobody wants to see it. They'll be talking behind your back. (About woman crying)
    Donald Trump Quotes
  • If you're going to be thinking, you may as well think big.
    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
  • It's just like a Coca Cola bottle - when you buy it, you always think that it's yours and you can do whatever you like with it. Now it's sort of different because you pay a deposit on the bottle. We're having the same problem now with the John Wayne pictures. I don't want to get involved, it's too much trouble. I think that you buy a magazine, you pay for it, it's yours. I don't get mad when people take my things.
    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
  • Even when I am filming, I’m thinking... ‘Oh my god am I going to be able to do this?’ I think, hopefully, the difference is that I’ve done a lot of different work before this film and I won’t be this girl forever.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • When I came to America there was so much promise of good stuff and I thought, I've got it made here. I'm going to kick ass.
    Naomi Watts Quotes
  • I think I enjoy London the best as it’s where I started my career. But Paris is beautiful too.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • In my country, families are raised as though they are one. Although I am from the Dinka tribe, my parents didn’t raise us as the Dinka tribe. They raised us as the Wek family, in the way they believed their children should grow up. So when you leave, the first thing you think is the ones you left behind. It’s natural to help them in any way you can. I found a way to support myself rather than asking my Mum to give me money. I would work before school and send money back to pay for their rent and food.
    Alek Wek Quotes
  • I thought I had more than I ever dreamt I'd ever need. And I liked flying around in the company plane.
    Jack Welch Quotes
  • When you ask me the question I think of us being roommates in college and there is plenty for us to think about being fanatical about movies.
    Owen Wilson Quotes
  • You can think of Hollywood as high school. TV actors are freshmen, comedy actors are maybe juniors, and dramatic actors - they're the cool seniors.
    Owen Wilson Quotes
  • I could hear my inner voice telling me it wasn't time, don't do it. And people around me whom I love and trust advised me to wait until I was sure everything was ready, but I thought I could make it all right because I wanted it to be all right. I was pleased that I had an opportunity to make it happen, and I wanted to get my creative juices flowing. But I wasn't ready for it.
    Oprah Winfrey Quotes
  • I needed to take some time to listen, to think and to get centered. I needed some time for me. So I started spending more time on my farm. I've never loved a place the way I love my farm. I grew up in the country, which is probably why I'm so attached to the land. I love it. I love the lay of the land. I love walking the land. And I love knowing that it's my land.
    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 feel very blessed. You know, as a kid, when I was growing up, especially in the third and fourth grade, I always wanted to be a minister and preach and be a missionary. And then for a while, after Mrs. Duncan's fourth grade class, I wanted to be a fourth grade teacher. And I think, in many ways, that I have been able to fulfill all of that.
