I find that the kind of traveling – long days, particularly if you go somewhere to do a show, and then traveling again the next day – a lot of people would find pretty challenging, but I find it energizing in a weird way.” ~ Johnny Marr
  44. “The thing is, when you’re kind of creatively self-employed, your brain just kind of chooses the path of least resistance, so if you really exhausted and you’ve had a long day, then that’s typically when you might respond to emails or if you’re on a plane and have nothing else to do, then you might listen to music and write these satirical pieces trying to explain the charts with music theory.” ~ Owen Pallett

You’re going to have to let her drown that third one.” ~ Daniel Tosh
  54. “I am a nonbeliever myself. But I think there’s so much about religion that is not factual in nature as to why people engage with it and what it means to them. You can debunk why you think there’s no physical evidence for God and why the story of Jesus didn’t really happen that way and stuff like that all the live-long day, and it’s not going to make a difference to what role religion has in people’s lives and how they feel about it and how it makes their lives better or worse.” ~ Adam Conover
  55. “You have moments where you do appearances and people recognize you and you get fan letters, but that’s after you’ve put in long days rehearsing, filming and for us kids – going to school on the set.” ~ Ken Osmond

When you’re delivering your lines, he’ll stop you and tell you some kind of riddle about the character and you have to go away and figure that out.

I can’t explain the fulfillment of that, but it is everything.” ~ Brad Pitt

But I would do it all again tomorrow.” ~ Dominic Monaghan
