In this post, you will find great People Say Quotes from famous people, such as Joel Osteen, Saina Nehwal, Graham Norton, Ben Savage, Tom Landry. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
You know when people say, ‘How do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa – that’s a downgrade.’ But the only question I can ask them is: ‘Have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all.’
I don’t mind what people say about me as long as it’s an opinion or the truth. If someone says, ‘He’s the worstcomedian in the world,’ that’s fine. If someone says, ‘His face makes me want to punch the TV,’ that’s fine. But if they say, ‘Oh, and I know for a fact he hunts squirrels,’ I go: no, no, no… that’s a lie.
It’s very tempting to have a nanny and live in a gated community and have a chef – I’d love to have a fewdinnerscooked for me. But I don’t want that for my children. When they’re older, if people say to them, ‘Did you have a chef?’ I want them to be shocked by the question.
I like to pour my wines for people. I watch their eyes, I can see what they’ll like. Most people say they don’t like dry wine because they haven‘t had a dry wine that’s clean and fruity, instead of a big, oaky thing.
I’d love to do a Michel Gondry film. That would be ideal! I’d love to do an Almodovar film; you know, I think he’s very, very talented. I don’t care that people say he’s pretentious. So what? He’s a good director; he can be pretentious.
My philosophy is: It’s none of my business what people say of me and think of me.
I always surprisemyself with my voice. A lot of people don’t get it, and they’re like, ‘You can’t sing. Stop. What are you doing?’ And it’s funny to hear a lot people say I sing in falsetto because it’s not falsetto – that’s my voice.
When people say, ‘You have Alzheimer‘s,’ you have no idea what Alzheimer’s is. You know it’s not good. You know there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. That’s the only way you can go. But you really don’t know anything about it. And you don’t know what to expect.
Many people say that in a liberalised world there is little for the government to do, but the fact is that there is much for the government to do in fewer areas. One such area is to provide infrastructure.
I think that all of us are 5-year-olds and we don’t want to be embarrassed in the schoolyard. I’ve gone through things in my life. People say it must be so hard to do it in the public eye, but the truth is, when you go through hard things, it’s just hard.
During a game, it comes down to your mind – the pressure. There are loads of other aspects, too. Many people say takingpenalties is easy, but when you’re stood over one, that’s not the case. It’s in no way easy. The goal really does become a lot smaller.
People say I am cheap, and I don’t mind if they do.
No matter what people say, your fans are the ones that come to watch the movie or come to your shows and that’s the most important thing.
People say, ‘Well you know the economy‘s bad, so Chinaconsumption will be low. No, totally different. You Americans love to spend tomorrow‘s money, and other people’s money maybe… We Chinese love to save money.
I never turn on the crowd. Sometimes, you think it’s a terrible show, and then afterward, sometimes people say they really liked it. So turning on the crowd is only going to alienate the few people who might like it. What do I do in that situation? Get through it.
It’s one thing to put out the opportunity, but it’s another to take it and run with it. People say to me, ‘Thank you for the opportunity,’ and I always respond with, ‘Thank you for taking it.’ We need to be able to see where, how, these changes can grow. Rome wasn’t built in a day, nor was WWE.
When people say, you know, ‘Good teacher,’ ‘Prophet,’ ‘Really nice guy’… this is not how Jesus thought of Himself. So you’re left with a challenge in that, which is either Jesus was who he said he was or a complete and utter nut case. You have to make a choice on that.
I tell people I never got to hear DylanThomas read because my husband wouldn’t let me, because he thought it would be a sort of bad influence. People say, ‘And you didn’t go?’ They’re so surprised because the me they know would have gone. And I say I was very much a ‘yes, dear‘ wife.
When people say to me ‘what do you think of rap music?’ my answer is there’s no such thing. There’s rap and there’s music.
I didn’t get into rap to be no lyricalgenius. I got into rap to feed my family and help the people in need around me, that’s it. A lot of people say, ‘Man, Waka Flocka ain’t go no lyrics,’ so I was like, ‘Yeah, you right!’
Waka Flocka Flame
I don’t like reading things that people say on the Internet because I know so much of it is not true. I don’t want to waste my timeworrying about what other people are thinking. I just want to focus on being able to do coolprojects.
I love getting attention, just like a child loves it, and it’s never worn off. So when people say, oh the book signings go on, why would I shoo away someone who’s giving me attention? What part of standing in line for 10 hours to say how much they love you is bad to you?
It’s upsetting that it is such a big deal. I wish it weren’t an issue all the time. It’s funny that people say it’s a departure, because I’ve been acting since I was a child. I’ve played three gay roles out of hundreds.
As Americans, we’re not sure we sharevalues. We’re sometimes even afraid to use the word ‘values.’ We talk about teachingethics in schools – people say, ‘What ethics? Whose ethics? Maybe we can’t.’ And they confuse that with teaching of religion.
There are times when you should listen to what people say about you, but also a lot of times you just don’t need to listen so much. Don’t worry so much and just go. Unless you’re, like, in danger, and then don’t. And then run, girl.
A lot of older parents worry about being older parents. I hear people say, ‘I don’t want to be too old to play baseball with my son.’ They worry that their kids will be embarrassed by their parents’ age.
You know that I had heard so many times people say things like, ‘You could never write ‘HarryPotter‘ and have it be about Harriett Potter because nobody would read it; people only want to read an adventurestory if it’s about a boy,’ and I thought, ‘I don’t think that’s true.’
I’ve had so many people say stuff to me. I meet them, have a chat for five minutes and they think they can say what they like. I used to laugh it off, but now I think ‘why do you think you can say that to me? You don’t know me.’
There’s always these giant baffling books, like ‘The Da Vinci Code.’ People say it’s not as well written as ‘Midnight‘s Children.’ Why aren’t people reading ‘Midnight’s Children?’ Nobody knows why these phenomenons happen but they’re great.
I listen to the people. That was a big reason for my life, maybe the main reason, I’m singing because I love it when people say to me, ‘Thank you.’ I thank them. It’s a marriage.
In normal life people say, ‘You’re so different than on stage!’ Offstage I’m down to earth, simple and a very goofy girl… I like to make goofy faces, be dorky and not take things too seriously. I just love to laugh.
With optimism, you look upon the sunny side of things. People say, ‘Studs, you’re an optimist.’ I never said I was an optimist. I have hope because what’s the alternative to hope? Despair? If you have despair, you might as well put your head in the oven.
Some people say I’ve got a five-octave range, which is ridiculous. That would mean I’d sing like Mariah Carey or that alien in ‘The FifthElement.’ And I’m nothing like that blue alien. I’ve got a range of about 3 1/2 octaves.
My generation, we really have to step up to the plate and vote. Tweeting is great – people say, ‘Oh, I don’t want this or that’ – but at the end of the day, tweeting isn’t a ballot. Just saying that you don’t like someone on Twitter is not going to turn a state blue or red. You have to vote.
A lot of foreign people say, when asking about eatinghabits, ‘What is your guilty pleasure?’ I have no guilt. Whatever I do, I enjoy and it’s the point. I think if you start to feel guilty about it, that’s a problem. So, no guilty pleasures. I have pleasure and no guilt at all.
I don’t care whether people say, ”The Office’ is rubbish, ‘Extras’ is worse, ‘Flanimals’ is a waste of time. He’s not funny; he never has been. I hate him.’ I don’t mind that at all. In fact, not only do I expect it, I celebrate it, because I think the haters are really important.
And I think if the president’s made a mistake here, it’s this laid-back kind of approach where he’s waiting for someone else to solve the problem. Some people say it’s a political strategy. No matter what it is, it’s not effective in solvingproblems.
When people say England, they sometimes mean Great Britain, sometimes the UnitedKingdom, sometimes the British Isles, – but never England.
But if you cover the World Series on the news or do a feature on an Ali boxing match then all of a sudden ears go up all over the place and people say what the hell are you doing. The reason for that is that we’re doing something that people are really interested in.
People say to me all the time, ‘You have no fear.’ I tell them, ‘No, that’s not true. I’m scared all the time. You have to have fear in order to have courage. I’m a courageous person because I’m a scared person.’
I don’t think I’m too thin at all. I understand when people say, ‘Well your face gets gaunt,’ but to get your bottom half to be the right size, your face might have to be a little gaunt. You choose your battles.
That’s a funny thing, fame. People definitely do treat you differently. When you begin to be successful, people say, ‘Don’t go changing.’ Well, that’s easy to say, but the fact is, you don’t change at all – other people do.
People say there’s a book in everyone but I’m not sure there is. There might be a pamphlet in me.
People say that slaves were taken from Africa. This is not true: People were taken from Africa, among them healers and priests, and were made into slaves.
People say Altamont was the ‘end of the ’60s.’ It was unfortunate, but at the time we didn’t think of it as signaling anything. The fact that nobody got killed at Woodstock is amazing because that was half a million people. We only had 300,000 at Altamont.
You know how a lot of people say, ‘I lose myself in music,’ or ‘I like to escape,’ but I want my music to be more of an awakening. I want it to make people to be aware of life; I don’t want my music to be a distraction. I want to light a path.
It’s funny, in some of the interviews I’ve seen that were done for the film, some people say things like, ‘Oh, I was never a very big Jim Woodring fan. I’ve never thought his work was that great.’
How do I play the princess thing? I don’t, really. I don’t like talking about it much and find it annoying when people say things like, ‘Oh, you’re the princess.’ One of my best friends jokingly says, ‘Hi, Princess,’ and I say, ‘Shut up.’ It is one of the things that bugs me most in the world.
Princess Eugenie of York
I don’t care what other people say. I fight every day to be the best player I can.
I have a high range. Sometimes I sound like Stevie Winwood. Some people say I sound like PeterGabriel. Some of the songs I write are funky. Others are slow. Some are ponderous, and some are there to shock. I must say some are pretty damn good, too.
It is difficult to meet fan expectations, especially when people say, ‘Oh, the last one was the best one.’ It creates more pressure each time for the next game to top the last one.
You know, one of the things my husband says when people say ‘Well, what did you bring to Washington,’ he said, ‘Well, I brought arithmetic.’
To be perfectly honest, I think that as I’m growing older, I’m just growing more impatient. I’ll be very happy if at some point people say, ‘Michael‘s grownwiser and softer in his old age.’ But we’ll have to wait and see what my next project is.
People say, ‘You’re still breast-feeding, that’s so generous.’ Generous, no! It gives me boobs and it takes my thighs away! It’s sort of like natural liposuction. I’d carry on breast-feeding for the rest of my life if I could.
I feel like people start to believe things that people say about them and start to think they’re really important. If you have a family that is down to earth and cool, I don’t see how you can be like that.
I’m really not sure what people think or expect me to be, but I am surprised when people say, ‘You’re not supposed to be like that… ‘ I’m not exactly sure what ‘that’ is, so I choose to take it as a compliment.
People say to me, Would you like to swap your life with me for 24 hours? Your life must be very strange. But of course I have not experienced any other life. It’s not strange to me.
People say you don’t need a father to be successful. I take offense to that.
I don’t really focus on these things – on what tags are given to me or what people think of me off the field – stuff like that. My main focus is always to do well on the field for the Indian cricket team. When people say good things about me off the field, I am more than happy to accept them.
It’s important to have people around you with enough confidence to say if you are not acting in a good way. Normally, when you are at the top, people say everything is fantastic. Probably in that moment it is what you want to hear, but it’s best to be reminded how to act properly.
In my life, I got a haircutjunior year of college that was a real wash-‘n-go type of situation. It was short. I had six or seven people say I looked just like HughGrant. And I was like, ‘That’s a man. So… that’s not nice.’
People say that about me, that I apparently buy housesnear every boy I like – that’s a thing that I apparently do. If I like you I will apparently buy up the real-estate market just to freak you out so you leave me.
People say, ‘Jay, you’re a great guy, you just had a couple of bad nights.’ People that have themselves under control don’t have a couple of bad nights like that. Plain and simple.
I find it difficult to judge myself, but people say that I have become a bit more sociallyacceptable over the years in terms of my material; which apparently at the beginning – though I never really intended it to be – was man hating and now is just a bit more cuddly.
I think I just never wanted to be the creepy guy where people say, ‘Why do his leadingladies keep getting younger and younger, and why do they think he’s so hot even though we know that the girl who’s playing this part actually has a handsome boyfriend?’
The reality is that in a tech environment that is 90 percent to 100 percent male, it’s not super-encouraging for females to be successful. It’s just a lot of things that contribute to that: things that people do or things that people say that they may not realize have unintended consequences.
I never missed a birthday. I never missed a school play. We carpooled. And the greatest compliment I can ever get is not about my career or performance or anything; it’s when people say, ‘You know, your girls are great.’ That’s the real thing for me.
When people say the U.N. is useless, I ask the question, which U.N. are we talking about? We have the U.N. that is a secretariat led by the secretarygeneral, and we have a U.N. made up of memberstates who give us our mandate.
Telling us to obey instinct is like telling us to obey ‘people.’ People say different things: so do instincts. Our instincts are at war… Each instinct, if you listen to it, will claim to be gratified at the expense of the rest.
Most good roles are written for young men. We are fixated on youth. So however much people say there is nothing wrong with being bald, the reality is once the hair is gone, you might not get the parts.
My kids started school, so having a strong base in Melbourne has been a key priority. I’m not daunted by the travel. People say, ‘It’s so far to Australia,’ and I say, ‘You get on the plane, you eat well, you sleep, you wake up – and you’re there.’
I think all great actors – and I don’t classify myself as one of them, incidentally – but I think all great actors listen well and I’ve learned that from a lot of the very good actors with whom I’ve worked – to really listen to what people say.
Three 6 Mafia have been around for a long time; we’ve made a lot of music. Anybody’s music can influence anybody. I’ve heard people say that our music has influenced such and such, and it could be true, and it could not.
If you walk into a room and one hundred people say, ‘You are a lovely, beautiful person‘, who isn’t going to be affected by that? But you have to tell yourself not to value that. You have to tell yourself – or at least I do – to not become accustomed to hearingapplause in any way, because I think that’s dangerous.
I still want to see the Knicks do well; I do. I promise I do. That’s my team. After all the stuff that happened, people say to me, ‘You still like the Knicks?’ Well, that’s just the way it is. That’s what happens when you’re a kid. Your team is your team, and everything is die-hard.
People will come up to me everywhere and say, ‘Ah, I saw you on ‘Larry King,’ and, ‘Ah, I saw you on ‘Oprah.’ And it’s really nice, and a lot of people say, ‘Is it a pain?’ And I say ‘No.’ And it’s not annoying.
It is always the case that when something emerges – which, of course, from the perspective of the former West Germany looks very different – then people say, ‘She hasn’t told us this yet’ and ‘She hasn’t told us that yet.’ I don’t know – maybe there are other things I didn’t talk about because no one ever asked me.
I’ve always been committed to tuning out the trends of drag and doing styles and fashions and performances that are really true to what I love, to the movie references I’ve always loved, fashion that speaks to me for whatever reason – no matter what people say.
My own dreams fortunately came true in this great state. I became Mr. Universe; I became a successful businessman. And even though some people say I still speak with a slight accent, I have reached the top of the acting profession.
Some people say the reason I am not married is that I don’t understand small business and the toughest small business in the world is a family. But when you are happy and feel every minute of your life, what is the reason to get married?
People say to me, ‘You don’t seem that interested in interviews.’ Well, you know, I’m not, often. I’m not going to talk tactics with the press, so you are left with talking about how you are feeling; for me, it is not the most interesting thing to be doing.
The tax issue is the most powerful issue in American politics going back to the Tea Party. People say, ‘Oh, Grover Norquist has power.’ No. Grover Norquist and Americans for Tax Reform focus on the tax issue. The tax issue is a powerful issue.
I’ve heard people say I’m a Curry and that helped me get where I am. Sometimes I think it’s the opposite.
I don’t play tennis to prove a point to anyone. I play for my country and myself. It’s not changing what people say or think. It’s about what I can do. If I feel I have the ability to achieve something and haven’t used my potential to that end, I’ll keep trying till I succeed.
You have to be desirable. And that’s why so many woman of my age or even younger are pushed to Botox and plastic surgery, all the things that people say, ‘Why do women do this?’ Where do you go in your 50s in your career?
My parents met because my father was an actor friend of one of my mom’s brothers, but my mother has never setfoot on the stage – she’s quite shy. So it’s a strange thing because people say, ‘Oh, coming from acting parents,’ when the idea of acting would literally make my mother just want to throw up.
I always have a notebook with me, I eavesdrop; I write down what people say. It’s very rare that one of those things will provoke a story, but I think that that kind of paying attention all the time, and keeping everything open, lets the stories come in. But where they come from is still a mystery to me.
There is something very unsettling about being with someone when they die. People say it’s peaceful. It’s not peaceful. It’s the most personal thing you can do, is die, and you feel almost like you’re invading someone’s most personal moment by being there.
The dubbing of the music and effects is really incredible today. You’re feeling gun shots. I mean, it’s not the way people say it is, but the gunshot sounds real. And cars sound real. Among the many things in the evolution (of movies) is to make the sound in the movie incredible. That’s what you feel.
When you are in the public eye, in the name of public service, you have to understand that the more people know about you, and the more people say they want to support you, the more you have to work even harder to uphold that trust.
You know that’s history, that’s why some people say that my stuff is retro, but I don’t agree.
It destroys you when people say complete mistruths about your family.
When I came into office, people said, ‘Billionaire? How do they live? What do they eat? How do they sleep?’ Today, they see me on the subway coming uptown. A couple of people say hi, some people smile and nod. Some people just sleep. It’s not an issue.
I think as we get older, as we get more mature and more experienced, we do realize it’s like, ‘blah, blah, blah,’ oh there’s the information I need, and then ‘blah, blah, blah,’ right? So we do this triage, I feel like, of what people say to us.
I don’t really mind what people say about my love life or anything like that, but the one thing is that, yes, I do sing and write all my own music. That is something that I hold really dear. And yeah, I made a fool of myself in front of the world, but it was also great to pick myself back up and go on tour.
I think most women, we have intuition. We always know what we always want to find out. We always want to be wrong, and we hate when we’re right at the end of the day. People say we love to be right. That’s not true. We don’t like to be right, because usually we know when it’s the truth.
Treasure is the kind of thing you dig up… or bury! And when people say, ‘Oh, he’s an icon,’ well, an icon is a very old painting hanging in a Russian church! If you want to say something, say something nice about me. Don’t call me a nationaltreasure.
Women in their 40s have gone through quite a few different things, and so the roles are going to reflect that. People say, ‘Oh, it’s done by 40,’ and now everyone knows it’s not. I actually feel like the roles are a lot more interesting.
People say that having three orchestras is a crazy life, but it’s better because you have three families. I want to have my own kids very soon. In future, I still want to conduct a lot, but less, to be with my family.
There are a whole bunch of roles where people say, ‘Oh, you’re playing yourself.’ I guess it’s kind of a compliment. Or people say, ‘Oh, man, you just roll out of bed and do that.’ The work is to make it look effortless. That’s the hard part.
I want to do stage again, because there just aren’t words for how great it is. People say that all the time, ‘There’s nothing like live theater, blah blah,’ but it’s really true. I see a show and I know how they feel, and it feels great.
I didn’t do it for the money. I know a lot of people say that, but if I’d wanted to be rich, I’d have stayed working as a citylawyer. I gave that up eight years ago and took a massivedrop in salary, and I didn’t mind because I was doing what I loved. There’s plenty of material for the other five books.
Obviously you can’t please everyone. I’m sure some people say, ‘Bloody old Len Goodman gets on my nerves.’
They are going to be playing Shaggy and Scooby-Doo for eons and eons, and they’re going to forget Casey Kasem – unless they happen to step on his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I’ll be one of those guys people say, ‘Who’s that?’ about. And someone else will say, ‘He’s just some guy who used to be on the radio.’
I have a problem when people say something’s real or not real, or normal or abnormal. The meaning of those words for me is very personal and subjective. I’ve always been confused and never had a clearcut understanding of the meaning of those kinds of words.
People say I play real loud. I don’t, actually. I’m recorded loud and a lot of that is because we have good engineers. Mick knows what a good drum sound is as well, so that’s part of the illusion really. I can’t play loud.
I don’t know how many times I heard older people, and not just parents but just older people, say, ‘Oh, my God. Your generation is just totally nuts. You have no sense of what it was really like, when it was great.’ And every generation has that same feeling, you know?
My thing is to get new fans. So I love when people say, ‘Oh, I’ve heard of him before.’ Or ‘I’ve never heard of Durk.’ Or ‘I’m a fan of Durk today.’ This is what I like to see, because it lets me know when I come out with something that it’s going to work.
People say dreams aren’t a thing that happen, and I’m a believer that they do.
People say sometimes that I’m distracted. I’m not distracted. I’m being smart. I’m capitalizing while the iron is hot. That’s why I’m trying to do movies. I do the podcast. I do a radio show. I work on FOX. I have a gym; I have a lot of things going on. That’s because when I’m done, I want to be set up.
If you’re convinced as an artist of what you’re doing, the only move is to, no matter what people say or what management says or your best friends say or people on Facebook, do what you do, and people will find their way to it.
People say, ‘Where do you get your strength from?’ Well, where does an ape get his strength from? They are 20 times stronger than humans, and they don’t rely on a meat-based diet. They eat plants all day long. It’s a myth that you need meat for strength.
Our responsibility in life is not to lie around and wait for things to happen. Our responsibility in life is to work. Life is getting out and getting things done. When people say they’re over-the-hill at age 50, I don’t understand it.
I understand what it’s like to come with your family, and to uproot yourself and come to another culture. You need a lot of support. People say, ‘She’s got her daughter; she’s got her husband.’ Yeah, but she hasn’t got anyone else.
When people say they don’t want a nanny state, they are, in fact, in a conflicted state of mind. On the one hand, they want to do whatever they want and not be stopped. On the other hand, if something goes wrong, they want to be rescued.
People say all kinds of things about the ingredients of songs. But you know they are a kind of magic, in the sense that they may easily include a stain on your bedroomwall… and a variety of mis-recollections. And then you name it after a girl’s name that you just made up.
I’ve heard people say it looks as if I don’t care and I’ve certainly read that, but the way I play is natural. I don’t think I can change it. I know I’m working as hard as the next man, even if it doesn’t always look that way.
I don’t want to rely on what people say about me to feel good; playing’s what I really enjoy.
I wasn’t obsessed by magic. People say, ‘How you can you claim you practiced eight hours a day and weren’t obsessed?’ Well, people go to a job they don’t even like for eight hours a day; it’s not obsessive if it’s something you like.
I’ve always swung the same way. The difference is when I swing and miss, people say, ‘He’s swinging for the fences.’ But when I swing and make contact people say, ‘That’s a nice swing.’ But there’s no difference, it’s the same swing.
When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves.’
