I’m not setting too many expectations for myself. I’m just trying to create opportunities for something interesting.

Many times when you’re a tourist you can just stay on the surface and not really experience the place you’re visiting, which will probably leave you disappointed. Everywhere has something interesting; it’s just about being curious enough to find it and scratch where you have to scratch and stay longer and walk further.
High school was interesting. For a lot of people, high school was just a big social experiment, and I think the value of high school was not so much learning how to be a great student… but I think it’s learning how to interact with people and be social. I would say that in that endeavor, I completely failed.
The misery of a child is interesting to a mother, the misery of a young man is interesting to a young woman, the misery of an old man is interesting to nobody.

It’s been really interesting watching people’s reactions to the new music, to the old music and also watching how modern young people will be standing in front of something going on like live music, and there’s a camera in front of their face.
As actors, we’re always asked to portray and react to these extreme circumstances, otherwise it’s not interesting. They are agonizing things to think about.
I was never the ingenue, so hopefully that’ll make it easier to age and still work. I know a lot of actors who are really dissatisfied with where they’re at even though some of them are huge stars and I feel like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re at the top.’ Something interesting will come. It always does. I have faith.
I grew up with interesting and funny people. We made our own fun. You had to use your imagination.

Things that are interesting, people will pass around the Internet, around the world. And the blogosphere is only the tip of the iceberg.
‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ have pumped up the recognition factor a thousand times. I can’t get off an airplane anymore. I don’t know how the hell they know and how these people find out. They must have some interesting, secret way of getting a hold of the flight manifesto or something.
‘Red Knot‘ is a film that I shot in Antarctica almost three years ago on a boat. It was a film that was improvised and it had very interesting circumstances while making the film, obviously. We were on a small boat bobbing around in Antarctica. It was a really remarkable experience.

It’s quite interesting that in my growing up I had several influences. We had gospel music on campus. R&B music was, of course, the community, and radio was country music. So I can kind of see where all the influences came from.
What makes literature interesting is that it does not survive its translation. The characters in a novel are made out of the sentences. That’s what their substance is.
While on top of Everest, I looked across the valley towards the great peak Makalu and mentally worked out a route about how it could be climbed. It showed me that even though I was standing on top of the world, it wasn’t the end of everything. I was still looking beyond to other interesting challenges.
Screwing things up is a virtue. Being correct is never the point. I have an almost fanatically correct assistant, and by the time she re-spells my words and corrects my punctuation, I can’t read what I wrote. Being right can stop all the momentum of a very interesting idea.
The mindset that I have on every project I take on is, ‘How do I make this interesting enough for me to want to stop and look at it?’ So in that regard, what I do behind the camera, whether it’s still or motion picture, is the same.
Science to me is sufficiently weird and interesting, and stranger than fiction.
Literature gives us a window into other people’s experiences in other places, in other times, so I thought it would be really interesting to investigate how different people had written about motherhood, and childhood.

It was a really interesting time in New York in the late 70s and early 80s, and the music scene was really, really interesting because you didn’t have to be a virtuoso to make music, it was more about your desire to express things.
The work I did on ‘Killing Kennedy‘ was very meticulous and, in some ways, actually tedious. It was hard work because there is so much known about John F. Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald. To try to distill that into a clear narrative that’s interesting and tells two great stories was a real challenge.
From my perspective, ‘postmodernism’ merely names an interesting set of developments in the social order that is based on the presumption that God does not matter.
What’s interesting about Lego is it’s constantly reminding you that it’s a facsimile of something else.
There’s a theory that says that life is based on a competition and the struggle and the fight for survival, and it’s interesting because when you look at the fractal character of evolution, it’s totally different. It’s based on cooperation among the elements in the geometry and not competition.

I love wearing interesting shoes that work well with my outfit.
Fashion photography should say something about the stability of a certain time you live in or what kind of women you like. The most interesting thing is not what they’re wearing but who they are.

The future is too interesting and dangerous to be entrusted to any predictable, reliable agency. We need all the fallibility we can get. Most of all, we need to preserve the absolute unpredictability and total improbability of our connected minds. That way we can keep open all the options, as we have in the past.
I just always knew I wanted to be an actor. I gave my Emmy acceptance speech when I was 11. But, I wasn’t allowed to do plays and things like that. It was considered dangerous. My parents didn’t think it was safe for a girl to do that, and they definitely didn’t think it was interesting to participate in the arts.
Steeler was a good start for my career. They didn’t play anything dangerous – everything was formulaic – but I played all this crazy stuff on top of it, and that turned out to be an interesting combination. But by the time ‘Steeler’ came out, I was already out of the band.

I really wanted to be a model when I was little. I loved photography, and I loved being on camera. But I was short and chubby, so I couldn’t. Anyway, being an artist is way more interesting than just being a model because it’s about you and what you want to be. You’re not being treated like a clothes hanger.

It’s interesting that when economic times were the hardest, that’s when many people embraced liberalism.
As a kid, I was always into art at the same time as computers, and eventually I realised I was making more interesting stuff with my keyboard than with my hands. I really enjoyed modifying computer games more than playing them, so that got me into programming.

I think what is interesting in life is all the cracks and all the flaws and all the moments that are not perfect.
The most interesting thing about acting is when you go to the dark places, that’s a lot of energy. When you go to the happiest places, it’s also a lot of energy.

There’s no particular role that comes to mind that I’d like to take on, but for me, it’s about playing interesting characters and not just two-dimensional ones.

I really appreciate that: to walk into an environment where everyone is serious and dedicated to creating the best performance possible and challenging themselves to figure out the most interesting way to approach the work.

Independence day is an interesting time to reflect on our strange fealty to institutions that the British left us, including those that were explicitly set up to be used against us.
I don’t aim for perfection. But I do want to try and come up with something interesting.
Miami Beach is a completely interesting hybrid because it is, on the one hand, a resort and, on the other hand, a real city. This condition of city and water on two sides I think is really amazing. And in the heart of that city, it has put an enormous convention center, an enormous physical presence.
I find it interesting that there are impostors out on the Internet pretending to be Werner Herzog.
For me, it’s not about breaking big in Hollywood, but having interesting experiences.
It’s an interesting combination: Having a great fear of being alone, and having a desperate need for solitude and the solitary experience. That’s always been a tug of war for me.
It’s interesting when people access their inner little girl or little boy. I remember doing tons of those exercises when I was in school, where you’re trying to dig into your vulnerability. There’s no mask for a child, so all those feelings are real.
I was getting frustrated with America. It’s interesting how as simple a thing as, like, letting your hair grow longer changed in the world in those days.
People think that what I see diving must drive what I put into films, but that isn’t really the case. When I am making a Hollywood production, I am telling a different kind of story. Of course, if I see something interesting that works, we will look at it, but they are different things.
That’s quite a difficult thing in life, to be who you are. And when you are doing interviews, you kind of feel this need to say something interesting.
What I find interesting about folklore is the dialogue it gives us with storytellers from centuries past.
Something that’s interesting is how my perspective on different events can change over time even though the events themselves haven‘t changed. As I get older, I interpret something differently, or I can even interpret a person differently.

I tell my children what I think myself: That religion is not necessarily convincing, but it is still interesting and not to be laughed at or denigrated.
My goal is just to be respected as a man when I walk down the street with my family. I don’t care what your job is, you’re not gonna talk down to me, you’re not gonna try to get a rise out of me. I’m a man first. And in establishing that, some interesting things have happened.
Robotic toys can be very interesting, but it is important that the toy not ‘dictate‘ how the child should play with it. Rather, it should take its cues from the child and enhance, teach, and enrich the play experience. We incorporated some of these features into a robotic baby doll we built for Hasbro in 1999.
Of the various branches of electrical investigation, perhaps the most interesting and immediately the most promising is that dealing with alternating currents.
Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself.
In social, you have to innovate in information. If you have the same thing as everyone else, you’re just not interesting.
What most experimenters take for granted before they begin their experiments is infinitely more interesting than any results to which their experiments lead.

People seldom think of soup for summer, so they are unusual – an interesting, unusual touch for the first course or for dessert. I find cold soups very refreshing. I serve them in cups rather than in bowls, usually, and let people sip them. You don’t really need a spoon for soups that are all one consistency.
Enjoy your time in public service. It may well be one of the most interesting and challenging times of your life.
Writing is such a singular and lonely occupation. And it’s interesting; all of the work that you create is so singular.
It’s the messiness of life that ultimately leads you to the most interesting things. Everyone asks what you would do over, and I don’t know because then you have this story to tell, and if you did everything over and made it perfect, what would you talk about?
You could almost write an opera about the selection of music directors for orchestras. The intrigues are really interesting, and then, at the end, the results are completely unexpected.
Bad people doing bad things is not interesting. What I find interesting is good people doing bad things.
There are two things I enjoy most about my work. First, I get to work with interesting and enthusiastic people who are also fired up about science. Second, every once in a while I have moments in which I suddenly understand the solution to a problem that I’ve been working on – those are great moments.
When I was making ‘Star Wars,’ I wasn’t restrained by any kind of science. I simply said, ‘I’m going to create a world that’s fun and interesting, makes sense, and seems to have a reality to it.’
Writers write these male stereotypes, and it makes it ten times more interesting if a woman says the lines.
It is not altogether wrong to say that there is no such thing as a bad photograph – only less interesting, less relevant, less mysterious ones.
What I find most interesting about the U.S. is this idea of equality. That’s what I’m trying to do with immigration. If what the founding fathers said is true, that we are all equal, then let’s fight for that.
I surround myself with a talented group of people that are opinionated and interesting. I try to remain very open to what others have to say.
The reason that fiction is more interesting than any other form of literature, to those who really like to study people, is that in fiction the author can really tell the truth without humiliating himself.

I think a leader has many roles to play. So, you know, one role is that of incubating talent; the other is that of being a strategist. It’s a very interesting job I’ve got.

Television is the most interesting hobby I’ve ever had.
It’s interesting how people are sensitive to language and how it works.
My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don’t know how I would have lived without animals around me. I’m fascinated by them – both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it’s made such a difference in my lifetime.
The more money an American accumulates, the less interesting he becomes.
I think, on the rap side of life, I’ve always been inspired by and respected Missy Elliott for a long time. She’s funny and created an image for herself that was non-sexualized but was really interesting and really cool and really kind of avant-garde in a lot of ways.
Beauty is in the character of a person. It’s about having an interesting face and about what’s inside. Anyone can take a good picture.
We want to build systems that can generalize to a new task. Being able to do things with much less data and with much less computation is going to be interesting and important.
It’s interesting, even in popular culture, in our vernacular now, the whole idea of ‘fake news.’ You hear it repeated on scripted television shows, on reality shows, you just see it everywhere, even in other countries.
Photography is a kind of virtual reality, and it helps if you can create the illusion of being in an interesting world.
This circuit is interesting because it has inclines and declines. Not just up, but down as well.

All of us, ultimately, we’re not that interesting, when it comes down to it.
I feel like I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, which is both settling and terrifying. The roller coaster is going, and there is no jumping off at this point unless I just go nuclear. It’s a really interesting part of the whole journey.
What I know most is that the difference between us is what makes us interesting and attractive and problematic and exciting and vital to each other. Give me difference over indifference any day.
What I find most interesting about acting is transforming myself.
For me, the performance was always playing different people. And so when I got older, was no longer the romantic leading movie star, it became more and more interesting for me, the characters I played, you know?
Also, it is interesting that developing countries, with China and India perhaps in the lead, where the future of the global environment will be decided are now on board with the case for sustainable development.
Japan‘s very interesting. Some people think it copies things. I don’t think that anymore. I think what they do is reinvent things. They will get something that’s already been invented and study it until they thoroughly understand it. In some cases, they understand it better than the original inventor.
If you write nonfiction, a historical account of what really happened, first of all, it’s always white men who do that, and you don’t have the voices that are really interesting to me, of the people who are not sheltered by the big umbrella of the establishment.
When you keep things responsible and manageable, you can make some interesting movies that you maybe couldn’t make otherwise.
My interpretation of the word ‘ugly’… I like ugly beauty. That can happen. In France, we have phrase ‘jolie laide.’ We like certain women who are not pretty or cute – it’s the opposite in France of pretty. It’s more strange and interesting.
One of the most interesting female characters I’ve written about was Meg Riddoch, the lead character in ‘The Thompson Gunner’.
What is it about royalty – even if you’re a confirmed republican – that is dramatically interesting?
Anything can be interesting as long as you access it from the right angle.

To be able to communicate with people on the other side of the globe is interesting, in an instant.
The relationship between violence and nonviolence in this country is interesting. The fact of the matter is, you know, people do respond to riots. The 1968 Housing Act was in large response to riots that broke out after Dr. Martin Luther King was killed. They cited these as an actual inspiration.
Curiosity is natural to the soul of man and interesting objects have a powerful influence on our affections.
For moral judgment, I think the most interesting trends in neuroscience are the ways in which judgments vary as a function of how emotionally salient the situation is.
The Bachelor‘s’ a very interesting thing, you can’t fake your way through it.
The biggest and most interesting crisis in the world is the human crisis, and it never gets boring. It goes back to Shakespeare. You don’t need a gimmick; it’s just man against man and their intolerance of each other.
Theater is where you go to find out something new that you don’t know. It goes through somebody’s brain and comes out in a comprehensible way that is beautiful, that’s really interesting.
The idea of growing up in the South and being a man is an interesting thing; there’s a lot masculinity involved, with hunting, fishing, and playing sports that rural people take pride in, but at the same time, I grew up really not wanting to hate anybody.
I think that a good movie creates its own world, and that world needn’t refer to anything that’s real. If it’s consistent, if it’s entertaining, if it’s interesting, it justifies its being there.
Passion and true passion is actually very unpredictable. It heads in unexpected directions because it’s constantly seeking out new challenges. But what’s really interesting is that passion ultimately is necessary for sustained extreme performance improvement.
People say, ‘Don’t live in the past.’ But I guess it depends on how interesting your past is.
In a perfect dream, things would be set exactly the way you would want them. But I think it’s more interesting that in real life, things aren’t exactly the way you planned.

Well, I think the social networking is really interesting.
I want to work on interesting parts that I can believe in.
I can’t say ‘no’ to an interesting role. I always tell my husband, ‘That’s it, I quit, I’ve done all I wanted,’ and he’s just like, ‘Yeah, yeah. Sure.’
People in the tech community may not like politics because it seems less interesting or less pure than what they’re doing. But you see the result of not caring about politics. This is no longer an abstract problem.
When I grew up, what was interesting for me was that music was color and life was gray. So music for me has always been more than entertainment.
What is interesting is the power and the impact of social media… So we must try to use social media in a good way.
I wanted to live the life, a different life. I didn’t want to go to the same place every day and see the same people and do the same job. I wanted interesting challenges.
It’s a different world: when I’m writing ‘Toast,’ I’ve got one foot in 1974 and one foot in the modern day, because the modern day is nowhere near as funny or interesting.
As a Western, ‘The Magnificent Seven’ was a pretty good film. I don’t think it was as interesting or as multi-faceted as ‘Seven Samurai.’
I find infidelity interesting because it’s so revelatory about people. It’s this really silent thing. Everyone acknowledges it as a general practice, but nobody likes to go beyond that, to get down to the nitty-gritty.
Surely the whole point of writing your own life story is to be as honest as you possibly can, revealing everything about yourself that is most private and probably most interesting for that very reason.
We left my birthplace, Brooklyn, New York, in 1939 when I was 13. I enjoyed the ethnic variety and the interesting students in my public school, P.S. 134. The kids in my neighborhood were only competitive in games, although unfriendly gangs tended to define the limits of our neighborhood.
My childhood and adolescence were filled with visiting scientists from both India and abroad, many of whom would stay with us. A life of science struck me as being both interesting and particularly international in its character.
I’m currently in an interesting correspondence with a nun about forgiveness.
Chinatown is tremendously interesting… It’s a part of the city that hasn’t really been explored in crime literature or in any general literature. It’s as though Chinatown didn’t exist. People write about New York without mentioning Chinatown at all.
I thought there was something inherently interesting in people turning to gold. It’s pretty cool.
If I were not able to separate the art from the artists, I think I would limit myself a great deal, and life wouldn’t be nearly as interesting.
What’s very interesting is that when we look at human bodies, we look at our body as a singular entity when it turns out, no, if I could reduce us to a small size as the size of a cell and put you inside your body, rather than seeing a singular entity, what you would see is a metropolis with 50 trillion citizens.
As interesting as that music can occasionally be, I don’t think it really replaces the other.
I read somewhere that your voice towards your children becomes their inner monologue. That was so interesting to me, and I think that pertains to ‘Better Things‘ as well.
I would love to do anything from a really gritty, interesting, indie type film, to that commercial, bigger stuff.
Christopher Hitchens’s autobiography, ‘Hitch 22’, is a poignant read and very interesting because I have a very poor knowledge of recent political history – or, for that matter, distant political history.
I have so much satisfaction in my life. I have a beautiful wife and the great stimulation of an interesting career. I’m the most happy fellow that I know.
I’ve played a lot of bad guys in my time, especially in movies. It’s delightful playing the villain. It’s almost the most interesting and most complicated role in a film.
You put choice on the table, you change the whole game. Everything is about control. If an ad is interesting to you, you’ll have the conversation with the brand. If it’s not, it’s a waste of time.
I find that the only way to make my characters really interesting to children is to exaggerate all their good or bad qualities, and so if a person is nasty or bad or cruel, you make them very nasty, very bad, very cruel. If they are ugly, you make them extremely ugly. That, I think, is fun and makes an impact.
I guess the first big name I worked with was Sissy Spacek, and that was really interesting just because she’s so incredible and I learned so much from just watching her. But she’s also so unassuming that I loved working with her. It wasn’t like working with a star, it was Sissy. Not a big deal.
Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything, or creating anything. Period. If you ain’t desperate at some point, you ain’t interesting.
Psychic, illusionist… I’m just doing the things that I find interesting and worthwhile.
The ultimate goal is to be an interesting, useful, wholesome person. If you’re successful on top of that, then you’re way ahead of everybody.
A man’s face as a rule says more, and more interesting things, than his mouth, for it is a compendium of everything his mouth will ever say, in that it is the monogram of all this man’s thoughts and aspirations.
With action films, it’s great if it’s not just driven by action, but by a good story and interesting characters, as well. Though, there’s nothin‘ like kicking butt!
In boxing, Mike Tyson fascinates me. The attitude and confidence that he could not be beaten when he was heavyweight champion of the world was interesting. He came across as very mild-mannered, and much of what he said made sense.
Every child growing up will look to their parents, my mother and my father. My grandmother lived with us. I picked up quite a bit of family lore and history from her, which was interesting.
Why are women… so much more interesting to men than men are to women?
I like to hear about what people do. That’s more interesting than talking about what the hell I do.
It’s something that was very interesting to me to be a part of and all of them again because of the relationship. Some of the superhero movies are better than others.
I personally believe that the iPod is a frankly corrosive device because it encourages you to surround yourself with your favorites. The whole idea of a playlist is to surround yourself with your favorite things, and the interesting thing is that when you do that, they cease to be your favorites.
People have a preconceived notion about who I am and it’s interesting. It’s like picking who you want to win for the Oscars and not seeing the movie. Before you make a statement about someone, get all the information and see everything before you make a judgment.
I think the interesting thing about the word ‘posh‘ is that it is so relative; it’s quite a provocative title because people have strong feelings about that word.
When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.
Being beautiful isn’t everything… Sometimes it’s interesting to show how you feel on the inside on the outside, just through expressing yourself.
To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
People don’t find the personal lives of people with much, much more power than any celebrity would have – don’t find their personal lives interesting.
More and more, cultural groups are cross-pollinating, and we’re getting much more interesting art as a result.
I also hope that I am occasionally involved in projects that touch other people in ways that make their lives a little better, more interesting for the moment that makes them think.
Eventually, while researching, you’ll learn something you didn’t want to know. Some fact that ruins a plotline you had in mind. The good news is that sometimes, learning all the facts can make for a much more interesting story than you originally had in mind.
I spent my entire youth being in love with gay men because they were the most interesting and compassionate people I knew.
I led the life of an intellectual up until a certain age. I remember Freud’s ‘Interpretation of Dreams‘ was a big favorite when I was 11. It sounded so interesting. And it really was!
I think if it’s interesting, it’s interesting, and if it’s not, it’s not working.
At every stage of my career I have had interesting and cordial colleagues, some of whom are close friends.
Given a choice between their worldview and the facts, it’s always interesting how many people toss the facts.
Famous doesn’t mean anything. Just because people know my face doesn’t mean they know us or that it makes us any more interesting or better.
It was interesting doing impressions as somebody else doing impressions. Normally, I’ll do a voice, and it’s me doing the voice. To have to be Robin Williams doing the voice was an interesting sort of study in getting into somebody’s head.
Games have gotten so big and interesting that they’ve moved beyond the toy/entertainment space. It’s not just a diversion from their regular lives; for a lot of people, it becomes an important part of their lives.
I really would like to be involved in things and to understand things, and in some ways you’ve got to be careful what you wish for because I feel very, very blessed to have such an interesting life and to be able to have little snapshots of lives of people from many different parts of the world.
I like controversy. The more controversial it gets, the more interesting it is.
I think you can always find interesting, complex and fascinating characters to play in different kinds of movies. It’s in your hands.
For people who come from powerful families, there is nothing in life quite as interesting as being at court.
It’s the things that you notice when you’re not actually with your instrument that, in fact, become so interesting, and that you – you want to explore, through this tiny tiny surface of a drum.
It works better if your lead character is complex and interesting and not perfect.
A life of anybody is not perfect; there is always things that happen, and that is what makes it interesting.
Whenever I write anything, I do sing to it, to try and make sure it’s interesting or compelling to sing to. I’ve gotten in the habit of sharing that with other, more charismatic vocalists.
All writers are going to have to learn more about science, because it’s such an interesting part of their environment.
In rallying every curve, every hill may be different than you thought. That makes it interesting.
All good players are interesting.
I don’t say I create. I copy, of course. I’ve never been interested in the point of view of the tailor or creator. Fashion is a visual impression. This is why I often refuse the name of fashion designer. It’s a superficial, stupid job. The social-psychological aspect is more interesting.
When you succeed, at a certain point, you want to challenge yourself. Otherwise, you become boring. You become a has-been. It’s not very interesting. I don’t want to be this guy who has only succeeded in France.
I’m in my own little world. I don’t get invited into galas; I don’t meet other people that I don’t find interesting. I hang with my friends all the time, and we do exactly what we like.
Performance art is going to be the future. Plays on Broadway are so restricted. But performance art is like haikus, just one line thing. And it’s more casual but more interesting.
I’m a forthright person and I am ambitious and I do hope that I get to do more, interesting work but not at the expense of me not being who I am.
The most interesting statistic, stunning statistic that came out of my research was that in 1942, as this war production effort is going on, the number of Americans killed or injured in war-related industries surpassed the number of Americans in uniform killed and wounded in action in the war by a factor of 20 to 1.
Photograph the world as it is. Nothing’s more interesting than reality.
Actors walk around wearing these little tool-belts of acting skills. And I just don’t find that interesting to watch. I never want to see someone who clearly can cry at the drop of a hat. That’s so uninteresting.
What is interesting to me about Vikings is that they were failed farmers.
When someone calls me up and wants me to do something, of course I am open to it. But I am not going to do it if there isn’t anything interesting or funny about it.
It’s very interesting, the dynamics of popularity. When you do something all the time, you don’t worry about whether it’s trendy or not.
Twitter and Facebook are brilliant tools, the journalistic uses of which are still being plumbed. They are great for disseminating interesting material. They are useful for gathering information, including from places that are inaccessible.
For me, the most interesting people are ones who often work against their best interests. Bad choices. They go in directions where you go, ‘No no no nooo!’ You push away someone who is trying to love you, you hurt someone who’s trying to get your trust, or you love someone you shouldn’t.
When you’re writing a book, with people in it as opposed to animals, it is no good having people who are ordinary, because they are not going to interest your readers at all. Every writer in the world has to use the characters that have something interesting about them, and this is even more true in children’s books.
I really tried out for the part of Harry Potter, but they ended up picking me for the part of the enemy of Harry. Actually it is really fun playing the bad kid because it just has so many interesting qualities to it. And Daniel Radcliffe and I get along really well off set so it’s really fun filming.
I suppose for me as an artist it wasn’t always just about expressing my work; I really wanted, more than anything else, to contribute in some way to the culture that I was living in. It just seemed like a challenge to move it a little bit towards the way I thought it might be interesting to go.
I think that’s what makes life interesting – the evolution of getting older, and it’s kinda fascinating to me, the whole process.
Any sort of major change we want to make in our life is hard. Change is not easy and true change takes time and takes thousands, millions probably, of failures along that path and that’s the interesting thing.
Life is funny and it is interesting how we make it as serious as possible.
When there’s no one you can point to, or when something goes wrong, it’s your fault – that level of responsibility and accountability is pretty interesting.
Downtown Toronto is a very good place to talk about the neutrality of modernist architecture. I’m sure this kind of box-building was interesting in the Twenties, Thirties and Forties, but I think it’s absolutely ridiculous to build like this in 2013.
If you are ignorant, you certainly can get into some interesting arguments.
It’s interesting to think about the different forms one place can take.
It’s interesting trying to make something as truthful as possible, but playing someone who is still alive is quite a weird thing.
I began to feel that the drama of the truth that is in the moment and in the past is richer and more interesting than the drama of Hollywood movies. So I began looking at documentary films.
I’m not going to give up doing interesting things. I’m going to do it as long as I possibly can and hopefully have longevity in this business.
Learn about the world, the way it works, any kind of science and anthropology, it’s really an interesting place we live in. Evolution is a really fantastic idea, even more than the idea of God I think.
Western Christians have imagined that, at the end of the day, God is going to throw the present space-time universe into a trashcan and we’ll be sitting on clouds playing harps. The ultimate future that we’re promised is much more interesting than that. It’s new heavens and a new Earth with new bodies to live in.
It was a really interesting thing to explore, the strength it takes for someone to stay when they truly do not want to be on this Earth anymore.
When I was starting out, I thought about how the Internet is global and that we should have a global name, a name that’s interesting. At that time, the best name was Yahoo! Suddenly I thought, ‘Alibaba is a good name.’
When I am putting looks together, I dare myself to make something work. I always look for the most interesting silhouette or something that’s a little off, but I have to figure it out. I have to make it me. I think that’s the thrill in fashion.
Every man has his follies – and often they are the most interesting thing he has got.
A Fantastic Woman’ has been seen as very interesting and entertaining. The film has had very good reactions. We are very surprised and delighted how the characters have connected with so many people.
Visually, a lot of the electronic artists have really interesting video and interesting things like that.
From an early age I didn’t buy into the value systems of working hard in a nine-to-five job. I thought creativity, friendship and loyalty and pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable was much more interesting.
It’s interesting because I don’t ever want to ask a better question than I can answer, if that makes sense. I find that frustrating as a viewer. Compelling questions, while not easy, are easier than compelling answers.
I have very interesting hobbies like archeology and photography.
I enjoy it; my experiences abroad have taught me the importance of an open mind and have given me a willingness to wander off the beaten path – not only to keep life interesting, but also to understand in a meaningful way that things do not look the same from every vantage point.
In a fragile environment, we need to be aware of ourselves as members of a uniquely powerful species living among other species who are quite as interesting as we are but vulnerable to us because we are cleverer in more destructive ways.
Nice people with common sense do not make interesting characters. They only make good former spouses.
Health innovation, enabled by digital technologies to build big consumer service brands, is an incredibly interesting, complex problem to work on.
A lot of very popular mainstream artists are products of record companies and marketing companies, and any time anyone can stand outside of that, that’s interesting.
The people were just so lovely and accommodating and had really interesting questions and it was just interesting to see how the show is actually received in so many different countries.
The secret of the man who is universally interesting is that he is universally interested.
When you run into something interesting, drop everything else and study it.
Some people think that my shows are just for shock value, but the provocation makes those classic pieces look different every six months. You don’t need to see the same gray suit every season. But surrounding it with 40 really interesting ideas makes it feel new.
From early morning to late at night, it’s such an interesting life, and I’m healthy and free, and that’s not so easy with a family.
I love watching amazing actors and actresses that you can’t take your eyes off of because everything they are doing – even if it is just twiddling their thumbs or scratching their eye – it’s just interesting.
I never said I wanted a ‘happy’ life but an interesting one. From separation and loss, I have learned a lot. I have become strong and resilient, as is the case of almost every human being exposed to life and to the world. We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward.
I’m not interesting enough on my own that you’d want to see a film about me.
Storytelling is storytelling. Good stories need compelling characters and interesting conflicts. That’s the bottom line no matter what medium you’re writing for.
On the East Coast, people try to make life interesting. On the West Coast, they try to make it comfortable. The emphasis here is on fancy cars, how one looks, less on the mind per se.
For me, personality acting is not that interesting. I don’t want to just be myself.
I don’t have big anxieties. I wish I did. I’d be much more interesting.
As you deal with more and more complex systems, it becomes harder and harder to find deep and interesting properties.
For the world to be interesting, you have to be manipulating it all the time.
It’s always an interesting sort of adventures that gets someone into a movie.
I just know what I go through, and I know how to speak on it in an interesting way.
It’s interesting, the more successful you become the more people want to give you stuff for nothing.
Typically in horror films the character just services the plot, and you really are just going from ‘point a’ to ‘point b,’ just so that you can end up at ‘point c.’ They are just sort of stick characters. That’s just not interesting to me.
I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect – they are much more interesting.
One of the greatest things about being an artist is, as you get older, if you keep working hard in relationship to what you want the world to be and how you want it to become, there is a history of interesting growth that resonates with different moments in your life.
Vegetables are interesting but lack a sense of purpose when unaccompanied by a good cut of meat.
If you don’t have a certain amount of stage fright, then it’s not going to be that interesting. It’s not going to have the inner vibration. I think screen work needs inner vibration.
It’s so interesting how you can take a bad situation and make a great song out of it that somebody else can listen to and have a completely different perspective of the song and have their own meaning. That’s what’s great about it.
I think it would be interesting to know what it feels like to be the most beautiful woman in the world.
Few people in contemporary art demonstrate much curiosity. The majority spend their days blathering on, rather than trying to work out why one artist is more interesting than another, or why one picture works and another doesn’t.
I subscribe to ‘National Geographic,’ ‘Scientific American,’ ‘Discover,’ and a slew of other magazines. And it is while reading articles for pleasure and interest that an interesting ‘What if?’ will pop into my head.
A lot of cases, what makes you an interesting and complex person makes you a really horrible person to be with romantically.
Depression is not interesting to watch.
Everyone’s had an interesting life. Unless they’re interested in business or something.
In this one book are the two most interesting personalities in the whole world – God and yourself. The Bible is the story of God and man, a love story in which you and I must write our own ending, our unfinished autobiography of the creature and the Creator.
If I’m daring at all, I guess it would be emotionally. I try to keep things interesting for myself and to do things that challenge me.
So I didn’t have anything to do with picking the songs, but I got to musically take them in places I thought might be interesting, so it was a real neat collaboration among the three of us.
Decorate your home. It gives the illusion that your life is more interesting than it really is.
My work is entirely surgical, and Col. Starr has given me a very interesting task of collecting nerve cases that have had the nerves sewn together. I may also do some experimental work for him.
It does surprise me that intelligent people in the 21st century could claim that if you respond to the terrorists with force, you spawn terrorism, but if you appease them, you somehow tame them. This argument, as I said, is very interesting, and very surprising.
I have an interesting perspective on depending on others. I think it gives people a chance to serve. And I’m not so much big on independence, as I am on interdependence. I’m not talking about co-dependency, I’m talking about giving people the opportunity to practicing love with its sleeves rolled up.
Performances are always more interesting to me when something is at stake.
If you get a WhatsApp message, you’re probably going to open it. That’s the interesting thing.
Is this film more interesting than a documentary of the same actors having lunch?
