  13. “The trouble with school is they give you the answer, then they give you the exam. That’s not life.” ~ Robert Kiyosaki
  14. “I couldn’t get myself to read the want ads. The thought of sitting in front of a man behind a desk and telling him that I wanted a job, that I was qualified for a job, was too much for me.

  24. “The flimsy little protestations that mark the front gate of every novel, the solemn statements that any resemblance to real persons living or dead is entirely coincidental, are fraudulent every time.

  30. “My stand-up is more like how I am in real life. I don’t really do a character thing in stand-up. It’s just a bunch of sentences that are supposed to be funny.” ~ Zach Galifianakis
  31. “I’m not a huge social media kind of guy, so I don’t really know, I don’t really ever get… at least in real life, I really don’t get recognized. I think people seem to find it very difficult to connect me to characters I’ve played.” ~ Freddie Stroma

  32. “In real life, when you speak with each other you overlap each other, so you can’t fake that. Like especially when you have no cut. In a regular film when you want people to overlap you cut it that way. It’s mixing and editing.” ~ Julie Delpy
  33. “Every day on the set, things change. You move things around. The actors are creating the roles and bringing them to life, and bringing the moments to life, as they happen.

  35. “One of the crazy things about our job is that we get taught these insane skills that we could never use in real life.” ~ Karl Urban

In film, you control everything that’s going on, so you can indulge the most fantastic, romantic, escapist feelings and fantasies. You can do anything you want. That’s why it’s very seductive and pleasurable to earn your living making movies because you’re not living in the real world.” ~ Woody Allen
  37. “The thing about the Oscars is real life doesn’t stop. You have to get back to planet Earth the following morning. The rubbish needs taking out. The kids will be crying. They’ll need feeding. Kids do not care whether you’ve been to the Oscars!” ~ Helena Bonham Carter
  38. “Real life, raising kids and trying to raise them to be good people takes a lot of work. It’s all about (appearing) effortless, yet there’s so much effort. You do it the best you can.” ~ Kelli Williams
  39. “It’s been really important to me to create moments where there’s a breath or moments where there’s a laugh or moments where there’s real-life that’s allowed to seep in through the cracks of whatever melodrama is happening, because that’s what does happen in life.” ~ Sarah Polley

  40. “Your image as a model is your currency. That’s the only thing you’ve got. No one cares what you look like in real life. Nobody is going to say the make up guy was terrible. They will say, you look awful and let’s not book her again.” ~ Iman Abdulmajid
  41. “A genuine approach to budget cutting – knowing exactly what you’re cutting and why, and with what real-life consequences – is beyond my competence, and probably beyond the competence of any politician in America.” ~ George Packer

  45. “The correlations between real life experience and the storylines in novels are never as direct or simple as they might seem.” ~ Ayana Mathis
  46. “Reading aloud sounds like a good idea, but honestly, it doesn’t work very well. Good dialogue in a book doesn’t actually bear much resemblance to real-life dialogue. For example, if you’ve ever seen a word-for-word transcript of people talking, it doesn’t read off the page very well. The trick is to make it *seem* like it’s being spoken, not to make it speakable.” ~ Patrick Rothfuss
  47. “Unfortunately for novelists, real life is getting way too funny and far-fetched.” ~ Carl Hiaasen

  48. “Just because someone acts a certain way on TV, that doesn’t mean he’s like that in real life.” ~ Randy Savage

I’ve been blessed because over 20 year, I never stopped doing what I was doing. It’s pretty much the same thing and I’ve never really changed anything up.” ~ Juicy J , Real life quotes situations
  53. “In real life, I’m such a dorky, happy person. I express myself in three ways: I talk a lot, I write songs and I get tattoos.” ~ Christina Perri
  54. “I find that the more I depend on real life, the less interesting the story is. It’s much more common for me to take something that almost-happened, or I wish had happened, and then follow that possibility.” ~ Sarah Dessen
  55. “While I find inspiration in real life, the actual stories are, thankfully, works of fiction – which, given the considerable turmoil in my character’s lives, is probably a good thing!” ~ Nicholas Sparks

  56. “I tend to avoid melodrama. I try to create very realistic settings and very realistic experiences and realistic responses to these experiences. Melodrama is the use of really big events that may or may not happen in real life – certainly they do, but they’re not events that are common to most people. Most of the things that happen in my novels are things that could happen to people in real life.” ~ Nicholas Sparks
  57. “The female characters in my books tend to be independent, frisky, spunky, witty, emotionally strong, erotically daring, spiritually oriented and intellectually generous; in short, the kind of women I admire in real life.” ~ Tom Robbins

In real life, we are beautiful, beautiful women. No one thinks we’re fat. In TV, we are TV fat and we just have to get used to it. Don’t ever take it personally. We’re TV fat. End of story”.” ~ Kether Donohue
  61. “As the writer you are the puppet-master and can control everything. Believe me, that is a whole lot of fun because it ain’t something that’s going to be happening very often in real life!” ~ Christopher Paul Curtis
  62. “How are you gonna make an ‘idol’ from the type of person you’re trying to avoid in real life?” ~ Natasha Leggero

  63. “Small businesses forget how to be social. Everyone tries to do social media when they should just try being social. To be successful with social media, you have to treat each individual person just like you would in real life by establishing a genuine connection with them.” ~ Jeet Banerjee
